HOBBY STOCKS

Eric Stanton found himself in Victory Lane after Bingston Rogers was the recipient of some of the harshest luck in racing while leading the race with two laps to go. Lapped cars got together ahead of Rogers, and Rogers plowed into the lapped car, ending his night. Rogers had passed Stanton a few laps earlier in traffic. Stanton nailed the final restart and capped off an impressive 2022 Karl Kustoms Bristol Dirt Nationals, taking the $5,000-to-win feature. Hailing from Carlisle, Iowa, Stanton went three-for-four on the event, winning two of his qualifying features as well.
