ABBOTSTOWN, PA – Tyler Ross came out on top after a non-stop 30-lap feature on Saturday night. The first thing he shared in victory lane was, “They need to shorten these races up.” It was a long night for Ross and the Lefever team, “Today we worked our butts off. We had this rear end out two times. We had all kinds of problems.” Despite the problems the team faced, Ross earned his third win of the year at Lincoln, “I can’t believe this is the third time this year.”
Kyle Moody took the lead at the start of the race and Ross hunted him down in lapped traffic, “I know I ran Moody down; he was good until we got into lapped traffic there.”
The pass for the lead was not the only excitement on the track as there was passing throughout the field. Ross said in victory lane, “This track was phenomenal tonight.”
Landon Myers drew the pole for the 30-lap Leffler Energy Night feature. Kyle Moody lined up to his outside with Tyler Ross and Chad Trout in row two.
Myers had the advantage when the green flag dropped and pulled a wheelie as he started down the front stretch. Moody took the lead from Myers as they drove out of turn 2 and led lap 1.
Gerard McIntyre got by Chad Trout for fourth as Tyler Ross caught Myers to battle for second.
Myers and Ross raced wheel to wheel on lap 6 at the line for second with Myers holding off the charge from Ross.
Moody entered lapped traffic on lap 7. As Myers caught the tail end of the field Ross had reeled him back in.
Ross got by Myers for second on lap 11. McIntyre was not far behind as he closed in on Myers for third.

Moody raced back to the lead at the line on lap 18. The battle continued as lapped cars loomed ahead. Ross took the lead back on lap 19.
Devon Borden drew the worst pill in the redraw and lined up ninth for the feature. Borden had been charging to the front of the field and made his way into the top five on lap 19.
Ross was pulling away from the rest of the field as a three-car battle for second between Moody, Myers and McIntyre was waging behind him.
McIntyre got by Myers for third on lap 24. Borden was still on the move and was picking off cars as the laps wound down. Borden got by Myers on lap 25 for fourth and passed McIntyre for third on lap 26. It took Borden two laps to reel in Moody for second, taking the spot on lap 28.
