scott3000aug30With his tire going down as he received the white flag, Johnny Scott slowed considerably but held an over eight-second advantage at the time and was able to hold on to take the $3,000 USMTS win Thursday night at Rapid (IA) Speedway. Leading all 40 circuits, Scott lapped everybody but the top six. “I felt that tire go down coming out of (turn) four for the white flag and I was like ‘You gotta be kidding me,’ but I guess I had a good enough lead and I just stayed on the gas and just kept going around there and we pulled it off. I didn’t think we were going to,” Scott said. Jeff Bodama Photo
