Looney Dominates Fulton Memorial
MUSKOGEE, Okla. – After wet conditions forced the postponement of the second annual Charlie Fulton Memorial on Friday at Thunderbird Speedway, Sunday offered chamber of commerce type weather, much to everyone’s delight.
Brad Looney started the Lucas Oil MLRA feature event from the inside of the second row and never looked back. He took the lead exiting turn two and rolled to his first late-model win of the season. His Sunday effort was worth $3,000.
“On the start everything just hit perfect,” said Looney. “My car was just extremely good. Once I got into the groove and got some laps going and got by Phillips, it just felt like everything was going to be right tonight.”
Sunday’s triumph marks Looney’s first ever visit to victory lane at the half-mile Muskogee oval.
Will Vaught continued his string of consistency, with his second runner up finish of the young season. He now holds a 24-point advantage in the standings. Terry Phillips was the KRC Top Qualifier and started on the pole. He was near the front throughout and finished third.
John Anderson and Mark Dotson competed the top five.
