A few weeks ago Brent Sutton was sweating, welding a new front clip onto his white number 3 600 microsprint. Friday night he was driving that same car to victory at Middleford Speedway in one of the most exciting 25-lap main events of the year.

Sutton started on the pole by virtue of his victory in the first heat race. He lead every lap, but that doesn't come close to explaining how exciting this race was. "Nitro" Nick Sapp started in the sixth spot and found speed in the high groove, eventually working his way up to the second spot. From there he began his assault on Sutton actually taking the lead, but a yellow flag wiped out that pass. On the ensuing restart Sapp failed to fire and dropped back through the pack. Scotty The Hammer" Smith was next to take his shots at Sutton, pulling even with him on the backstretch on two consecutive laps; however Sutton would not be shaken and went on to take his first career victory.

This week Thomas ran his Thomas Family Farms no. 2T 250 micro in both the 250 class and 270. All Thomas did was go undefeated for the evening; he won both his heat race and feature in both classes.

"Nitro" Nick Sapp protected his point lead in the 600 Micro class in the best way possible -- he won the 25 lap main event. Jon Warfield had a strong early run, jumping to the lead from the pole. Warfield's run ended with mechanical problems on lap nine. Sapp took over from there, but his run to the finish was not without excitement. On a restart late in the race Sapp and Bruce "Hollywood" Hibbs Jr. came off of turn to side by side and within a whisker of making contact. Both cars went sideways with Sapp able to recover and Hibbs going around. From there Sapp his Shirey's Auto Sales no.29 on to victory over Scotty "The Hammer" Smith.

Pit Notes: Mike Calinoff, spotter for NASCAR Nextel Cup driver David Stremme was on hand at Middleford Speedway Friday Night. Calinoff owns a driver development firm and was scouting 600 Micro competitor Bruce Hibbs Jr and Mod-Lite Jr. driver CJ Faison. Brent Sutton Sr. informed that his son Brent Jr. spent the entire week putting a new front clip on the team's no.3 600 Micro. Brent Sr. was quick to point out that 15 year old Brent Jr did all of his own welding on the repair.
