Harraka gets AAS win
By: Chase Montgomery Special to The Press-Tribune
In what was one of the hardest fought, cleanest driven races of the season, BMR's Paulie Harraka in his Ruth's Chris Steakhouse No. 16 Toyota won the 50-lap main event for the Toyota TRD Late Models at The All American Speedway last Saturday. G. Glenn Plastering's Gary Glenn led early and looked smooth. John Moore was second by lap eight and it looked as if a battle of the veterans was about to unfold. Moore got past Glenn on lap 18 for the lead with Harraka hanging tough in fourth. Harraka got by Glenn on lap 25 for second and the race was on. With laps winding down, Harraka battled Moore hard and clean, door to door, lap after lap until he was able to make the pass for the lead on Lap 39. From there, it was Harraka's race to win.
