Justin Rattliff Sweeps Ultimate BoB 2nd Annual Spring Shootout at Richmond Raceway
by Michael Despain
RICHMOND, KY (April 16) - Battle of the Bluegrass series racing returned for the first time since 2009 on Saturday evening at Richmond Raceway as the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Series would sanction the 2nd Annual Spring Shootout and Justin Rattliff of Campbellsville, KY would lead all 40 laps en route to a $4,000 payday. Other feature event winners included in Keith Smith of Stanton, KY in Phantom Racing Gear Modifieds, Brandon Hutchinson of Hi Hat, KY in AR Bodies KDRA Super Stocks, and Dave McCarty of Owingsville, KY in Stock Four Cylinders.
Justin Rattliff would jump to the early race lead, as three cautions in the first three laps of the event would slow the pace. Scott James would take second from 7th place starting Jason Jameson on lap 5 and 8th place starting Jeremy Hines would work past Dustin Linville for fourth on lap 9. Rattliff would pull away from the field a bit, but by lap 17, the driver better known as “The Rattler” would have to contend with slower traffic and this would allow James to close in a bit, but Rattliff would work the traffic perfectly until caution waved again on lap 21 when the duo of James and Jameson were battling for second in traffic and contact was made with a lapped car, causing James to do a 360 degree spin and never stop on the track, but Jameson would spin, along Dennis Barton and Donnie Everman also being involved. One more lap would be made before the final caution of the event would wave and would also see a delay as one car put oil down on the racing surface from turn four all the way to turn two. Once action resumed, Rattliff would pull away slightly from the pack and eventually score the victory in the James Rattliff owned MGL Auto Sales/JRR Auto Sales/On Time Courier/Pro-Tech Metal Fabrication/Rodgers Construction/Wave Length Hair Salon/B&B Motorsports/Budda Bert Transmissions/Xtreme Graphics/PPM/Hoosier Tire/Joe Gibbs Driven Oil/Wiles Driveshafts/Butlerbuilt/Team Petersen/Arizona Sport Shorts/GottaRace.com/Team AFCO/QuarterMaster/Wayne Bowen Racing Supply/Simpson sponsored #16 Club 29, Cornett Race Engines powered mount. Hines would finish second, with James completing the podium finishers in third. Greg Johnson and 15th starting Todd Coffman would complete the top five. The remainder of the top ten would be Derek Fisher, Jameson, Josh Hall, Mikah Reams, and Chris Ruble. Twenty-three entries saw Rattliff also be the top qualifier at 14.426 seconds and win a heat, while Linville and James would also be heat winners.
