“I consider this the biggest win of my career,” said a jubilant Carr after winning before a crowd estimated at 15,000. “That is what flat track racing is all about. We got an amazing crowd out here and the right kind of crowd with all the industry and a lot of European press. I’m just glad we turned in a good close race for them.”
Carr came out of Coolbeth’s draft coming down the home stretch on the final lap and ran around the outside of the No. 1 bike to take the thrilling victory.
Carr’s margin of victory was a scant 0.030 seconds in the closest finish of the season.
It was a tough night for pole winner Jake Johnson. Johnson ran up front, but had his motor start to tighten up on him and he pulled off on lap 13.
The race was red flagged twice. One was caused by a Jon Cornwell and Nicole Cheza crash in turn three. Both walked away from the accident.
The series is off a few weeks and will have its finale at Heartland Park Topeka on Oct. 4.
