Published 12:00 am Monday, November 3, 2003

Will Mack continued his winning streak at South Alabama Speedway, taking the streak to six straight wins. But his latest win came with a little controversy.

Ricky Osborn took the early lead until Kim Bishop ran him down and took the lead on lap 11. Bishop, starting 13th, had quickly made his way through the pack and Mack had followed him through. Heading to the last lap, Mack made the move to the inside coming out of turn four. As the pair entered turn one, Bishop and Mack got together, sending Bishop around. Mack was able to avoid the spinning Bishop, and went on to keep his win streak alive. Jason Singletary finished second with John Singletary third. Osborn slid back to fourth in the final run down, with Craig Drake fifth.

Rick Northey has been knocking on the door to Victory Lane for several weeks. He finally broke in Saturday night, winning the Super Stock Feature. Northey, started fifth, but quickly moved into second. On lap three, Northey moved inside of David Ashley to take the lead. Ashley followed Northey the rest of the way as Northey picked up his first win of 2003. Scotty Anderson finished third with Ken Pettis fourth, and John Weaver fifth.

Ken Gibson took the lead form Terry Malone on the third lap of the Modified Feature and went on to score the victory. Kevin peel came from the seventh starting spot to finish second. Peel wrestled the runner up spot away from Jamie Ater on the final circuit. Jonathan Graven was fourth and Malone fifth at the end.

In the Vintage Feature, Dwayne Bates led early before losing the lead to Steve Stewart on lap nine. Bates regained the lead three laps later when Stewart and Phillip Anderson got together battling for the lead. Bates then had to battle with Ted Shores before he could secure the win. Bates and Shores went side by side for the last eight laps of the race. Surprisingly, although Bates was running on the outside, he was able to find the grip he needed to pull Shores off of the corners. Bates beat Shores to the line by half of a car length. Stewart finished third, Anderson fourth, and Steve Joyner fifth.

Chad Roberts led flag to flag to win the Street Stock Feature. Scott Morse crossed the line second, but refused to tear down after being protested, resulting in his disqualification. Morse's "dq" moved Stacey Bedsole up to second. Derek Deese, survived a protest and finished third. Harold Hurt was fourth and Charles Cotton fifth.

In the Mini Sportsman Feature, Gary Adams led all 25 laps to take the win. Dwayne Maloy followed Adams all race to finish second. Greg Adams came from the ninth starting spot to finish third. Burl Brunson followed Greg Adams through the field to finish fourth. Rodney Maloy was fifth.
