Kenny Merchant and Greg Hollingsworth take SUPR and Mod victories!

Baton Rouge, LA (March 20, 2004) - Baton Rouge Raceway presented a new challenge for the O’Reilly SUPR Late Models and the Mississippi Modifieds but two familiar names rose to the challenge as defending O'Reilly SUPR Late Model Champion Kenny Merchant topped the SUPR Late Model feature while Greg Hollingsworth claimed the Mississippi Modified feature.


Merchant, from West Monroe, Louisiana claimed his second O’Reilly SUPR victory of the 2004 season as he topped a duel with Rob Litton for the win.  Merchant wheeled the J.D. Caver/Goddard Performance Keith Craft Racing Engines Ford Mustang Warrior to his 30th career victory.  Litton held on to second ahead of Kevin Watts, David Ashley and rookie competitor Ray Moore.


Hollingsworth from Lawrence, Mississippi backed up his brother Ken's State Championship win at Baton Rouge Raceway last year by getting by Shane Hebert to take the Mississippi Modified feature win.  Hebert held on to second ahead of a fast closing Roy Schnebelen.  Glendale Shoemake and Mark Hebert rounded out the top five.


In local action, Eric McAllister and Justin Bowman took the Pure Stock heat wins. On the start of the feature, Bowman took the lead with McAllister in tow. Lap after lap McAllister stuck to Bowman and even got a nose under him at times but Bowman was smooth and held him off to take his second win in a row. McAllister took second, Shannon Graham was third with Kevin Saucier fourth, and Leonard Barrileaux fifth.


Butch David topped the heat and feature races for the Sprint Cars.  Michael Herrington and Terry Vidrine rounded out the top three while Terry Vidrine had a rough start to his season rolling his sprinter in heat race action.


Jimmy Stephens and Matthew Simeon took the heat wins for Street Stocks but on the start of the feature it was Tommy Cannon who took the lead. Behind him was a side by side battle with Matthew Simeon and Jimmy Stephens and this allowed Cannon to pull clear and take the win.. Jimmy Stephens eventually won the battle for second with Jason Wilks moving by Simeon for third. Simeon came home fourth ahead of Carl Bourgeois.


Junior Dupont and David Knight dueled for the Super Stock heat and feature wins with Junior edging Knight in both instances to take the victory.
