14 year old wins 43rd Raintree at Mt. Lawn

Jack Dossey III of Indianapolis making only the fourth start in a Late Model at Mt. Lawn drove his Steve Ellis built automobile to the win in the 43rd running of the Raintree 100 Saturday night before the largest crowd of the season. The 14-year-old Dossey, who was the fastest qualifier of the evening at 17.033, led the final 23 laps for the win. Dossey showed the patience and skill of a seasoned veteran in the 100-lap event.

Randy Anderson of Knightstown started on the pole and led the first lap with Mt. Lawn veteran LJ Lines of Lewisville taking the lead on lap two. Lines’ lead was very short lived as he lost control of his mount in the first turn and made contact with the concrete wall ending his night. Lines’ accident proved to be caused by a suspension failure. As a result of the Lines accident, Brandon Mefford of Spiceland who was looking for his fourth feature win in a row assumed the top spot with Jason Thompson of Shirley in second.

The next car to retire from the race was Anderson who dropped out on lap 10 with transmission trouble causing the car to jump out of gear. The top 5 at that point were Mefford, Thompson, Dossey, Todd Marsh of Muncie and Colby Lane of Knightstown.

On lap 19 Dossey got around Thompson for second only to get shuffled back to third on a lap 25 restart. Dossey got back around Thompson for second on lap 29 and began his relentless pursuit of Mefford. On lap 37 Lane lost his brakes entering the short turn and slammed very hard into the wall bringing out a red flag so emergency crews could check on Lane. By the time crews got to Lane, he had climbed out of his heavily damaged racer apparently unhurt. Also on lap 37 Jason O’Neal of Wilkinson dropped out the race because of suspension problems.
