TUSCUMBIA, Ala. – Two-time USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen earned her second victory of the season with the USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour on Sunday at North Alabama Speedway.

Turpen, who was the high points earner after the qualifying heats, started from the pole and led every lap of the 25-lap contest. She also had to hold off 2013 USCS National champion Derek Hagar, who started third, after a lap-20 caution bunched the field behind her for a final five-lap dash to the checkers.

Hagar chased her across the finish line in the runner-up spot.

Dale Howard followed Hagar to finish third during round one of the USCS Summer Shootout mini series. Eleven-time USCS champion Terry Gray was fourth and Kyle Amerson was fifth.

The finish:

Morgan Turpen, Derek Hagar, Dale Howard, Terry Gray, Kyle Amerson, Marshall Skinner, Danny Smith, Brandon Taylor, Ronny Howard, Johnny Bridges, Jeff Willingham, Chase Howard, Tony Agin, Shelby Brown, Dewayne White, Jamie Manley.
