Charles and Ryan Davis led the field to the green flag, but Alan Truscinski came from his fourth starting position to lead the opening lap.
Once out front, Truscinski pulled away from the field as Josh Abrahamson filed into second.
Truscinski had a somewhat comfortable lead over Abrahamson until Thomas, Sr. came charging through the field. Thomas, Sr. maneuvered by Abrahamson, a former BRRP Mod Four track champion, before setting his sights on Truscinski.
Thomas, Sr. made the winning pass for the lead on Truscinski on lap nine of 15 before checking out and taking the checkered flag.
“I kind of had to gather my wits and figure this thing out,” continued Thomas, Sr. “But we were able to have a good run. I’m out of breathe, but I had a great time.”
The NLSA Lightning Sprints will be back in action next Sunday evening at Buffalo River Race Park. Racing starts at 6:00pm.
