By Tony M. Suttles
Scott Hamby claimed the official victory in the B-Mini Stock race ran at the Anderson Motor Speedway on Friday night March 28, 2008. Hamby took the lead on the first lap of the race and never looked back as he clearly out paced the rest of the competition. Hamby led every lap of the twenty lap feature race for the B-Mini Stock cars. Trey Gibson battled his way to the second position near the half way point of the race but failed to cut into Hamby’s advantage before the laps ran out on the race. Trey Gibson finished second. Chad Campbell finished third. Mark Timmerman finished fourth. David Darnell finished fifth.
Ray McAdams claimed the official victory in the fifteen lap “Talking Phonebook” Renegade race. McAdams took the lead as soon as the green flag dropped on the race and subsequently led every lap of the race on his way to the victory. Ken Dillard held the second position until the final lap of the race when he was bypassed by the previous week’s winner Chris Ingle. Even though Dillard held the second position the majority of the race he failed to maintain the pace set by McAdams. Chris Ingle finished second. Ken Dillard finished third. Chris Whitfield finished fourth. Jim Skinner finished fifth.
Zac Lane claimed the official victory in the Super Renegade race. The victory was the first for Lane in the Super Renegade division. Sam Roberts took the lead as soon as the green flag dropped on the race but as he entered turn one his car broke loose and he slid up to the high side of the turn. This gave Lane the inside line and he immediately took advantage of Roberts’ misfortune and drove under Roberts and took over the top spot. Once out front Lane held the position the remainder of the race and technically led every lap of the race. Roberts, along with Earl Young, battled each other and closed on Lane but neither were able to get past Lane for the lead. Earl Young nailed down the second position late in the race and ran close to Lane the last couple laps but had to settle for the second place finish. Sam Roberts battled his ill handling race car ever lap but managed to finish third. Travis Barbare finished fourth.
Kevin Eskew claimed the overall victory and the victory in the Semi Pro Class of cars competing in the 600 Legends race. RS Senter held the lead the first fifteen laps of the race but had Eskew all over him during this tenure. Eventually Eskew grabbed the lead on the fifteenth lap and led the final five laps to secure his first overall victory in the Legends class while competing at the Anderson Motor Speedway. Wesley Thompson moved to the second position a couple of laps after Eskew took the lead but failed to press Eskew for the top spot. Wesley Thompson finished second and claimed the official victory in the Pro class of cars competing in the race. RS Senter battled Thompson in an effort to regain the second position once he relinquished it to him but failed to overtake Thompson in order to regain the position. RS Senter finished third. Jerry Rector finished fourth and claimed the official victory in the Masters class of cars competing. John Gallman finished fifth.
Matt Meyer claimed the official victory in the B-M Modified division. Meyer and Shawn Mize battled side by side the first lap of the race with Meyer taking the lead at the end of the first lap by a nose. On the second lap Chuck Mitchell moved to the second position.

Jeffrey Kummer finished third. Shawn Mize finished fourth. Jock White finished fifth.
Zack Dillon claimed the official victory in the C Mini Stock division. An early incident removed one of the two front row cars before a lap was completed which allowed Dillon to start on the front row. Dillon and Chad Stewart battled the first lap before Stewart tagged the wall and dropped back in the field. Dillon immediately pulled away from the remainder of the field and went on to lead every lap of the race and pick up his second victory in a row. Kayla Pritchett took over the second position early in the race and although she was able to cut into Dillon’s advantage she never got close enough to challenge him. Kayla Pritchett finished second. Brandon Hendrix finished third. Chad Black finished fourth. Chad Stewart finished fifth.
Avery Burgess claimed the official victory in the Young Guns race. Due to limited number of Young Guns drivers the Young Guns competed with the C Mini Stock cars. Burgess held his own as he finished the race in a top five position and ran with the more experienced drivers during the race. The victory was the career first victory for Burgess. Austin Aker finished second.
