White flag waved at on 2013 Murray County racing season
By: Sean Solheim Murray County News Sports

Just as fast as it was to start, the 2013 racing season got the white flag on Friday night signaling one to go in the season. With the some championships on the line, itís now or never for some drivers, but on Friday night, the track was fast and aggressive which led to a quick night at the Murray County Speedway.

The Hobby Stocks started out the night with the main battle between Eric Gillette and Trevor Holm for the points lead. Both drivers started close to each other near the middle of the pack while Adam Bruder took the pole for the start. Right on the first lap, Matt Hanson sped to the front and appeared as though he was going to run away easily with the win. Bruder ran a great line in all four turns and was able to hold off Brad Snyder and Corey Gronewold for that second spot.

At about the halfway point in the race, Hanson had about a quarter track length lead over the rest of the drivers, until he saw the yellow flag come out for Gronewold as he had car troubles in the back stretch.
