Winston, Missouri -- David Wood hauled his #82 Machine Supply/Wood Racing Chevy modified to I-35 Speedway near Winston for the USMTS tour's second 2012 renewal at the 3/8ths-mile track. Some 50 hopefuls entered the event, many of them USMTS regulars, leaving Dave and other locals to race their way in. Starting his qualifying heat race in a lucky-draw 2nd position, Dave was unable to capitalize and drove a patient race to finish 8th. The #82 would have to make the race through the last-chance "B" feature, a 15-lap dash from which the top six would transfer into the night's main event. Dave patiently stalked the bubble spot from a comfortable 8th-place ride until a flat tire halted his drive and left him out of the paying race. Ryan Gustin (#19), from Marshalltown, Iowa, picked up the victory in that one.
