From the night 2 story already posted on here:
The big event of the night was the season-opener for the Joey Coulter Florida
Pro Truck Series. Port Charlotte’s Michael Burns, who won the tune-up race
for the Trucks on night one, set fast time at 20.240 seconds while defending
Truck Series champion Becca Monopoli was second quick at 20.294.
With the top five in qualifying inverted for the green flag, Rodney Haddock
had the pole position with Kody Jett to his outside. Jett grabbed the early
advantage and led the first three laps before Whitney Poole and Eddie
Lichtenberger locked horns sending Poole into the inside wall on the back
stretch. Both were able to continue.
On the restart it was Monopoli moving to the lead bringing Burns with her.
Burns wasted little time in taking over and he made the pass on lap seven.
Burns was pulling away when the second yellow flag of the race came out on lap
31 as Vance Hall spun in turn two. Danny Anderson, who started ninth, moved
to third spot on the restart and began to challenge Monopoli for second just
before Poole and Brian Lynch. Jr. crashed hard on the front stretch. Both
drivers were OK but done for the night.
The rest of the race ran under green flag conditions as Burns simply left the
field in his wake to sweep the weekend. Monopoli came home in second place
ahead of Anderson. Fourth went to Blake Haddock who just held off J. R.
Garcia III at the checker. Completing the top ten were Jett, Rodney Haddock,
Eddie Lichtenberger, Dean Butrum and Robert Strader, Jr.
