Trackside Now: ASA SAT - "Estrol Oil 100"
Sunday, 3/29/09  - Second Leg of Weekend Doubleheader 
Five Flags Speedway - Pensacola, Florida
Sunday - 6:55pm CT - Paul Kelley held off John Bolen and several others and scored his first career ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour win.  Kelley was one of the few drivers that came to race this weekend with the focus on only the Five Flags Speedway track.  After the race he talked about it.

"We came down here on Thursday and watched it rain for a couple of days," said Kelley.  "It really helped us focus on this track by practicing here on Saturday.  "We have had some good runs here, but to finally get a win after several years really does feel good. I really have to thank Hedman Husler Hedders, they do so much for us and our racing program."

Hunter Robbins had a strong car and was leading, but a lap car spun and took him out just after halfway.  That's all from Five Flags Speedway, check out Speed51.com for more information later this week.  Here are the results for the "Estrol Oil 100" goodnight!

Sunday - 12:10pm CT - The drivers meeting has just wrapped up and one new rule has been added. Starting with this event any time the race is inside 10 laps to go the field will go from a normal double-file restart to a single file restart.  Last night the all the driver ran well with the double-file starts until the late stages of the event.

The cars are rolling on the track for the first round of practice. Today will be a very fast paced event with both ASA SAT officials and Five Flags Speedway officials looking to get drivers on the road after the event as soon as they can.

Sunday - 11:22am CT - Max Gresham had an amazing drive from 16th to to the front to score his first career ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour win.  If Gresham can score another win tonight he will pocket an additional $1,000 dollar bonus.

Sunday - 11:15am CT - Last night Josh Hamner had a car that races only dream about.  The 2008 Blizzard Super Late Model champion led most of the race before tire problems sent him back through the pack in the middle of the race.  He did rebound to battle for the lead late in the race before contact with DJ Vanderlay sent them both off along with a bunch of other cars in the third turn.

Hamner still found reason to smile as he comes back to his favorite track Five Flags Speedway.  He feels that they can make up for last night with a win today. 

Sunday - 10:52am CT - Today's race will be live on RaceTalkRadio.com just like last night's event. In case you missed the action last night you can listen to the full race or just the highlights from Mobile International Speedway (AL).  Today's broadcast with Elgin Traylor, Wesley Outland and Doc Love is expected to go on the the air 3:30pm Central Time.

Sunday - 10:45am CT - Good morning from Five Flags Speedway!  We have taken a 60 plus mile trip to the east for the second leg of this weekends RC Cola / MoonPie ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour doubleheader.  The pits are alive with nearly 30 cars and the big buzz is about what went down last night in Mobile.  The final two laps of the race where filled with action and heartbreak.  In the end Max Gresham went to victory lane and getting by John Bolen on the final lap of the event.
