When Jones and Tucker collided and crashed into the wall, Tucker's car slid across the finish line with enough momentum to get him second place. Randy Hupp of Halifax. Va. squeezed by to take third place and Jones was credited with a fourth-place finish. Courtney Crosby of Scottsburg, Va. rounded out the top five finishers.
