Rowe  2) Sanborn   3) M. Rowe   4) Richie Dearborn  5) Adam Bates


PRO CUP - In what was one of the wildest races in recent memory, Brandon Ward earned his first-career Pro Cup Northern Division win on Saturday night at Motor Mile Speedway.  Ward led a bunch of the event before giving up the lead to Benny Gordon.  Gordon then led until having to come in for a splash of gas after a 130-lap green-flag run.  That handed the lead back to Mark McFarland, who was one of just two cars on the lead lap.  McFarland then fell off the pace while leading, handing the lead back to Ward.  A couple of "Lucky Dog" passes put two more cars on the lead lap, leaving a four-car shootout for a green-white-checkered finish.  Jeff Agnew lined up second and was able to pass Ward on the final lap in turns one and two, but Ward got back by Agnew in the final corners to grab the win.  1) Ward   2) Agnew   3) Lonnie Rush Jr.  4) Gordon  5) Jody Lavender
