TN (June 9th) - The gates opened Saturday night
and Crossville Raceway roared to life once again.
The Powder Puffs were in action this week along
with our regular racing program. With new clay added
to the track this week, it made the anticipation
of the race this weekend a season high.
Late Model qualifying it was #34 Ruben Mayfield
setting fast time with a lap of 13.70. Actually,
Mayfield shared the fast time with #77 Perry Delaney
but was awarded fast time because he qualified before
Delaney. Third quick was #84 Buddy Knox with a lap
of 13.82, fourth was #5J Jesse Lowe with a 13.85
lap, and the fifth fastest qualifier was #8 Trent
Mullinax with a lap of 13.88 around the historic
1/3 mile clay oval. After qualifying Mayfield rolled
a “4” meaning the top four qualifiers would be inverted

was Knox taking the win, with Lowe finishing in
second, and Delaney rounding out the top three.

lap 19. Mullinax lost another position as Cline
