Jon Stanbrough Wins Another One
Stanbrough was off on the restart as Clauson tried to keep pace, while Bacon, Darland, and Windom all raced for third. Meanwhile, Schuerenberg was sneaking up the bottom to sixth.
Over the final handful of laps, Stanbrough was too strong as he pulled away to a 3.073-second win in the MP Environmental Services – Indiana Underground Construction No. 37rw Maxim/Fisher.
“After winning last night, you want to come out the next night and do it again. I hope we’ve found what we need and can keep beating them. I thought maybe we could try the bottom at some point, but it was just too slow. When I slid past C.J. for second, it showed me a line there just off the cushion, and I ended up running that line the whole race through one and two. It held throughout the race and worked better for me than the cushion. How can I not go home excited now for the next month of races?” said Stanbrough.
Clauson came home comfortably in second aboard the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing – Chevy Performance No. 20 Beast/Kistler.
“Jon and I were running pretty much the same line, and I kinda got a little too aggressive on the restart, and the harder I drove, the more he pulled away from me,” Clauson said. “The top got pretty fast for a while, and then I tried to slide Jon on one of the restarts while he was dealing with a lapped car, and it kinda stuck. Between that, and all the races I’ve run here, I know that you can start trying some different things as the cushion gets to be a long way around. We were good on a short run, but not on a longer stretch.”
Windom finished his strong run from 12th to fill the podium in the Jeff’s Jam-It-In Storage – Hoosier Tire No. 11 Maxim/Claxton.
Bacon finished fourth, increasing his point lead, while Dave Darland was fifth.
