CLERMONT, Ind. – Jake Garcia thought he would have to settle for second in Sunday’s JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour event at Lucas Oil Raceway.

He thought wrong.

Brian Bergakker took the lead on lap 54 and led the rest of the 100-lap distance to seemingly score the victory. However he was later disqualified in post-race technical inspection for having too much left-side weight in his pro late model.

As a result, Garcia inherited his first series victory ahead of championship contender Mason Keller in second.

Sammy Smith, who led the first 53 laps, was credited with finishing third. Trey Craig and Steve Dorer completed the top-five.

Ryan Amonett won the companion Van Hoy Oil CRA Street Stocks feature while Terry Fisher Jr. won the Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman main event.

The finish:

Jake Garcia, Mason Keller, Sammy Smith, Trey Craig, Steve Dorer, Mandy Chick, Wes Griffith Jr., Dan Leeck, James Krueger, Jaden Cretacci, Tyler MacKenzie, Howie Disavino III, Trevor McCoy, Jessica Dana, Jimmy Tucker, Brian Bergakker.
