A&G Night at the Races,
Presented by Virginia Mining Association and Friends of Coal
The Super Cup Series made it's annual
stop at Lonesome Pine Raceway for a very special night of racing,
The Coal Miners 100. This year the Super Cup cars ran their
traditional 100 lap event. In addition, several
local divisions were on hand for this exciting night, including
Chargers, Pure 4s as well as Legends and Renegades.
This year was even bigger with an on
track autograph session for all divisions before the racing action
got underway. Making the night even more special was the
ISCARS series running twin fifty lap feature events.
A&G and Super Cup teamed up with
the Food bank of Wise
to offer discount tickets to anyone that brought donations to the
track. The Food Drive
was a tremendous success thanks to all the fans in attendance.

Series and sponsors would like to extend our appreciation to
everyone who helped the food bank for this very worthy cause and
hope you enjoyed the A&G Coal Miners 100 along with all the

Clint Keenan driving for the two time
Champion car owner Lonnie Rush not only won in his very first Super
Cup race, but his first race on asphalt and took home the prized
trophy. Keenan from
Delaware Ohio said in victory lane, having the opportunity to drive
for Lonnie Rush was great! The track very slick and my dirt track
experience was extremely helpful.
Qualifying saw # 75 on top again, and
in the draw Jody Harrison pulled an ace to start on pole and made
the best of it until an rear end oil leak sidelined the point leader
on lap 71 turning the top spot over to the # 51.
Harvey Harrison seemed to have it all
going his way until the newcomer with the dirt experience slid past
for the win with four laps remaining.
Kevin Kromer # 77 finished third
coming back from an early crash that knocked the right quarter panel
off. Rounding out the top five were Mike Kurkowski making his
first start of the season in the 01 car and # 80 Brent Nelson from
West Virginia taking the Charlie Canterbury Hard Charger Award.
