Recap of the racing at EAMS Saturday 7/8/2017:

EAMS Late Models – 25 Laps:
1 – #27 Larry Harrod – checked out – led flag to flag – never in doubt.
2 – #5 Thomas Lewis – started 3rd and battled with #110 Rick Culpepper for several laps before claiming 2nd and pulling away.
3 – #110 Rick Culpepper battled all race long – early with Lewis and later with #1D Dalton D Cook. He lost the early battle but won the later one.
4 – #1D Dalton D Cook – after winning his last 4 starts at EAMS, this had to be a disappointment – raced hard all race long battling for one position and then another.
5 – #5B Brand Lewis – good solid run – persevered.
