Jay Blair, Chad Williams, Rocky DeGruy and Justin Bowman top the Baton Rouge Raceway opener!


Baton Rouge, LA (March 12, 2004) - Jay Blair dropped in on the competition at Baton Rouge Raceway and drove off with the Late Model victory as he battled by Jimmy Noland with three laps to go to claim the season opener at BRR.  Noland led the filed from the drop of the green but it was Blair with a late charge that saw Blair draw even with Noland as the pair raced on to the front stretch.  Blair and Noland got together with Noland getting in to the outside wall.  Blair went on to take the win while Noland parked his car for the night following the restart.  David Ashley, Bill Gordon and Larry Clayton followed Blair across the line.  Noland and Gordon won the heat races.

Chad Williams stormed by Jeff Martello to take the season opening victory in UMP Modifieds.  Martello led from the start but Williams emerged from a three-wide battle for second and then used a restart to power by Martello to take the win.  Martello held off the Cassano boys for second with Troy and Chris Cassano in third and fourth with Jerry Dugas in fifth.  Jerry Cassano and Jerry Dugas topped the heats.

 

Mike Montgomery won the Street Stock heat race but he was unable to hold off Rocky DeGruy in the feature.  DeGruy and Montgomery dueled early before DeGruy used the high line to take control of the race.  Montgomery held on to second ahead of Jody Vicknair.

 

Justin Bowman claimed his first Pure Stock victory at Baton Rouge Raceway as he topped fellow heat race winner Hank Davidson to take the win.
