Ballard and Cherko Beat the Rain at the Ridge
In the All-Star Slingshots, it was Andrew Millard and Bob Morey leading the field to the green. Brock Pinkerous quickly took over the top spot in the race and had Danny Ballard hot on his tail as the laps clicked off the board. Ballard worked his way around Pinkerous on lap six and began to pull away. A caution at lap 10 brought the field back together as Andrew Millard's night ended on the hook following an incident in turn four. This set up a five-lap dash to the checkered flag.
On the restart, Ballard pulled away and took his first win of the 2020 season. Mike Hill who came from 11th finished in the runner up position, and Conner Hill got 3rd after starting 17th out of 18.
In the Jr Slingshots, Sloan
led the field to the green and held off a late race charge from the 771 of Lucas Duncan to win a green to checkers feature. Corky Warner got 3rd, Brock Pinkerous finished 4th and “Kid Dynamite” Frankie Twing III rounded out the top five.
