GAFFNEY, SC - October 1, 2016 – Trey Starks of Puyallup, WA made a statement Saturday night in the 20th Anniversary United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented by K&N Filters race at Cherokee Speedway by coming from the 20th and last starting spot to take the lead on lap 18 of the 30 lap race. He then charged the final 12 laps to park his Jeff McCall owned #23 in the www.Rockauto.comUSCS Victory Lane after his second straight USCS win. The victory was the 20-year driver’s career fifth USCS feature win.  Starks was the apparent winner of the Engler Machine and Tool First ten-lap Heat Race, but he failed to report to the scales for the post-race weigh in, and he was disqualified.  That put him on the tail of the 20-car starting line-up for the 30-lap main event.  That’s a long way to go, and a+++++++++++++ short time to get there!

“This team is awesome because they never gave up,” Starks said.  “I just tried to keep moving forward, keep my head down and pass as many cars as I could.  I really love coming down here to race with these guys.  I really love the tracks down here because we just have little quarter-mile bull rings in Washington state.”


National Sprint Car Hall of Fame Inductee Danny Smith of Chillicothe, OH finished in second place after a late race battle for that spot with 11-time USCSNational Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN, took the third spot.  The defending USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN was fourth and Troy Betts of Newark, DE finished fifth.


Terry Witherspoon of Jacksonville, FL drove home to the sixth spot, and seventh went to Tony Agin of Naples, FL.  Mitch Brown of Brantford, ON Canada was eighth, with the McLain boys of Indian Trail, NC rounding out the top ten with 2014USCS Rookie of the Year, Brandon McLain taking the ninth spot, and his brother Jake McLain in tenth place.


In preliminary action, Lance Moss of Cherryville, NC won the six-lap USCSHoosier Tire Speed Dash and the six-lap Mystery Dash was won by the “Ripley Rooster” Jeff Willingham of Ripley, MS.  The winners of the two ten-lap Heat Races were Tony Agin of Naples, FL in the Brown in the Engler Machine and Tool First Heat, and Eric Riggins Jr. of Charlotte, NC in the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions Second Heat.


Lance Moss took the lead at the start of the 30-lap main event after winning the K&N Filters Pole Award.  Following Moss to complete lap one were Riggins, Gray, Smith, and Agin.  Starks made a bold statement in the opening tour of Cherokee Speedway, as he went from 20th to 10th.  Turpen joined the top five on lap four, and Starks moved up to seventh.


Starks just kept moving forward through the field, as he was fifth by lap six, and fourth by lap 11.  Lap 13 saw Starks pass Smith for the third spot.  The only thing that slowed him down was the caution flag that came out on lap 13 when Tim Perry of Mooresville, NC stalled on the race track.  Riggins gave up the second spot on lap 14 when he slowed on the race track with mechanical issues.


The restart had Moss leading Starks, Smith, Gray, Turpen, Agin, Witherspoon, Betts, Brandon McLain, and Brian Thomas of Pendergrass, GA in tow behind him.  When the field went back to green flag action, Starks found his hardest car to pass of the night in the leader Moss.  The caution flag came out on lap 18 when Greg Smyre of Hickory, NC stalled on the front straightaway.


During the caution period, Moss suddenly turned down pit road and retired his race car for the evening.  That put Starks in the lead as he looked for his second straight win in as many nights.  Starks had no challengers in the 12 remaining laps and he put the exclamation point on a successful weekend with the USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented by K&N Filters.


The next stop for the 20th Anniversary United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented by K&N Filters will be on October 8 at “The Hornet’s Nest,” Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, AL.
