Murphy Rules Skagit During The Day


ALGER, Wash. — The rained out Thursday night preliminary program for the Jim Raper Dirt Cup was held Saturday afternoon at Skagit Speedway with Peter Murphy taking the victory.

Murphy masterfully negotiated the slickened off three-tenths-mile oval by getting past race long leader Austen Wheatley in turn two of the 27th lap. Shane Stewart also passed Wheatley, who wound up third.
