But Rahmer was just strong enough in the outside lane to thwart Taylors efforts as the pair raced to the two to go sign after which time Rahmer pulled out just far enough to prevent any other attempts at his lead from developing.
Now we just need more, Rahmer said of getting his first win of the season under his belt. For a washed up, no driving son of a bitch I couldnt be happier right now.
Believe it or not I can still drive a race car.
Taylor raced home second followed by Montieth, Greg Hodnett and Don Kreitz Jr.
Meleason started on the pole of the sportsman feature and was really never tested during his run at the front, which was slowed for a caution with six away and stopped for a red flag with five laps to go.
After the red for a two-car tangle in the second corner for Scott Geesey and Rick Barr, Meleason took two more laps under power before clouds of white smoke began spewing out of his machine, ending his night.
At that point, 10th starter Perigo assumed the lead and took the win over seventh starter Russ Mitten.
Leory Martin, Steve Fannasy and Scott Dellinger completed the top five.
