 Pro Cuts Texas World Dirt Track Championship @ Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track, 2/28/08-3/1/08
By J M Hallas
Ft. Worth, Tx.(Feb. 28th, 2008) Day one of the Pro Cuts Texas World Dit Track Championships saw changes in the program with the LImited Modifieds replacing the SUPR Late Model series. A smaller car count than the past years still saw over 150 teams(107 modifieds/48 Limited Modifieds) sign in for their shot at the prestigeous Texas Motor Speedway trophy. It was more quality than quantity in the Modified class as top drivers from nine states(Tx., Ok., NM., Ark., Iowa, La., Mo., Kan., and Colo.) made for a star-studded field.
 
The first night of qualifying would be set through passing points in the heats, taking the top 16 to the A-main, then C and B-mains to fill the remainder of the field. The nights top four finishers would then be locked in for the big Saturday Championship finale
 
Dunn Get's 'er Done in Modified A-qualifier
After garnering the most passing points in heat race action, Clyde Dunn jr. started on the pole of the 15-lap A-qualifier. Dunn got out front early, then held off hard charging Randy Timms in the final laps to get the win.
 
As the 24-car field tok the green, Dunn got a big jump on the field with Chad Wheeler getting by Paul White for second. At the back of the pack, Trent Crawford, Chase Allen and Curtis Allen tangled to bring out yellow on lap 1. On the restart, Troy Taylor got by Davd Smith jr. for fifth, but Smith fought back to retake the spot until he spun while trying to get by Grag Skaggs for fourth.
 
Once under green again Timms was making his charge, from his eighteenth starting spot, to challenge Morgan Bagley for seventh. On lap 3, White got past Wheeler for second, while Timms sailed past Taylor and Skaggs for fourth. Skags didn't give up easily as he and Timms swapped the spot fo several laps until halfway when Timms secured the position.
 
At the crossed flags it was Dunn, White, Wheeler, Timms and Skaggs in the top five. Timms then picked off Wheeler for third on lap 9 and ran down White on lap 11. Two laps later, Timms got by the former USAC Silver Crown champion, White with two to go. Up front, Dunn was on cruise control not knowing Timms was on the move. Timms cut into Dunn's margin, but never mounted a serious challenge as Dunn in the Hoosier Southwest, Smiley Racing Products, AFCO Shocks, Skins Raps, 2 Extream Tattoo, Wells Racing Engines, Skyrocket Chassis grabbed the victory.

Baytown's Brown Best in Limited Modified A-Qualifier
One of the Houston areas hotshoes, Chris Brown gave car owner Jim Thorne the present of a win at the famed Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track in the Limited A-qualifer. Brown capitalized on a second start, jumped into the lead and never looked back as he led flag to flag for the victory.
 
On the intial start of the 24-car, 15-lap event, Bo Day got out front, but a mid-pack stack up caused a multi-car spin setting up a complete restart. On the second try, B. Day, Brown and Paul White dove into turn 1 three wide for the lead, with Brown coming out of turn 2 with the top spot. Another multi-car tangle on lap 1 along with debris on the track slowed the action once again.
 
When green waved again, two time IMCA Sourtern SportMod champion, Keith White challenged B. Day for third, while brother Paul tried to hold on to second and Kevin Green and Tommy Gantley ran side by side for sixth. K. White was still pressuring B. Day, now for second, when yellow waved for Gantley who rolled to a stop on the track.
 
On the restart, K. White got the jump on B. Day and grabbed the spot. The top four had begun to pull away as the race came to halfway with Brown, K. White, B. Day, P. White and Chris Cogburn running in the top five. Jimmy Day
recovered from one of the early mishaps to work his way back up to sixth by lap 10. As the white flag was shown Brown held a six car advantage over K. White, who had a big gap back to B. Day and P. White. At the checkers it was Brown easily coming across the line first.
