BOGGS BAGS THE BIG BUCKS AT EAST BAY!!!

Tampa (Gibsonton),FL 2-9-01

Jackie Boggs of Grayson,KY captured the Renegade STARS Racing Series
sanctioned final night of the "25th Silver Anniversary Late Model
Winternationals100" at East Bay Raceway in Tampa,FL Friday night. Driving
The McDonalds of Maysville,KY/Swartz Race Cars/T & H Racing Engines/Steve
Cascio Racing No. 4B Chevrolet Monte Carlo, the second generation driver
held off a hard charging Billy Moyer over the final 25 laps to secure his
second career Renegade STARS Racing Series triumph.

"This is just fantastic!", stated a very happy Boggs in victory circle.
"The car was fast all night and I've got to give a special thanks to Swartz
Race Cars. Once we got to the front we just had to keep out of trouble.
Chub raced me hard there for awhile and then Billy gave me all we could
handle but here we are. I've gotta' thank all of my sponsors and all of the
fans for coming out and supporting us".

Moyer wound up second three car lengths behind Boggs with 12th starting
Mike Balzano third, R.J. Conley fourth and 19th starting Rod Conley fifth.
Completing the top ten were 22nd starting Dennis Erb Jr., 27th starting
Rodney Franklin, 15th starting Bill Frye, 24th starting Terry English and
Tim Dohm. Attrition played a major role in the event with only 13 of the
original 28 starters finishing the race, ten of those on the lead lap.

At the drop of the green flag pole sitter Steve Lucas jumped into the lead
but a five car pile-up in turn two brought out the caution before lap one
was completed. Randy Korte and Davey Johnson both suffered major damage
dropping them from the event. At the end of the first lap Lucas held the
point with Boggs, R.J. Conley, Moyer and Frye trailing. Cautions on lap 5
for a Greg Lucas spin, lap 6 for a Steve Shaver spin and lap 10 for a flat
tire on Delmas Conley's car slowed the pace.

Once the race resumed some great racing took place and all eyes were on Don
O'Neal. Involved in the first lap crash, O'Neal used the extreme outside
groove to work his way back to the front moving into third spot by lap 17.
R.J. Conley had worked past Boggs for second by this point with Lucas
running unchallenged. Working lap 21 Lucas entered turn one when Delmas
Conley spun directly in front of the leader and with no place to go Lucas
crashed into Conley as did Steve Shaver who had gone a lap down to Lucas
the previous lap.

R.J. Conley inherited the lead at this point with Boggs sitting second
followed by O'Neal, Moyer and Chub Frank. Caution again on lap 22 for Rick
Eckert slowed the pace and at this point O'Neal headed pitside for a change
of tires. Boggs shot past Conley for the lead on lap 25 with Moyer, Balzano
and Frank filling out the top five. Three more cautions on laps 27,29 and
33 slowed the pace.

By the halfway point the top ten running order was Boggs, Frank, R.J.
Conley, Balzano and Moyer followed by O'Neal, Rod Conley, Erb Jr., Frye and
Franklin. Boggs and Frank raced side by side through lap 51 with Frank
nosing ahead to lead lap 52. Boggs regained the lead back on lap 53 only to
have Frank return the favor on lap 54. Frank would lead through lap 58 with
Boggs regaining the lead for good on lap 59.

By the three-quarter mark Boggs enjoyed a four car margin over Moyer with
Frank third, Balzano fourth and R.J. Conley fifth then Rod Conley, Erb Jr.,
Franklin, Frye and Dohm. Frank's great run ended on lap 94 when he lost
electrical power bringing out the last of the 15 cautions periods that
slowed the event setting up a six lap shoot-out.

With three laps to go Boggs bobbled a bit exiting turn two allowing Moyer
to close to his back bumper as the entered turn three. Moyer slipped
between turns three and four giving Boggs the margin needed to secure the
win.

The $50,000 purse drew 84 cars to the semi-banked 1/3rd mile with Jackie
Boggs earning the CARRERA SHOCKS "Challenge the Clock" Time Trial award
with his quick lap of 15.060 seconds. Taking heat race wins were Steve
Lucas, Billy Moyer, Don O'Neal, Steve Francis, Donnie Moran and Scott
Bloomquist. The MASTERSBILT RACE CARS "B" Main's fell to Rod Conley, Rick
Eckert and Ray Tucker while Steve Lucas scored the ISKY RACING CAMS Dash
and Brian Birkhofer copped the "East Bay Raceway Invitational Dash"
