TUCSON, Ariz. — official series release —

While it wasn’t really the way Logan Forler had imagined winning the opening night of the Copper on Dirt, nevertheless, the Steve Forler Trucking No. 2L was awarded the victory at Tucson’s USA Raceway following a penalty that was assessed after the checkered flag.

Taking the lead at the start, Forler set the pace until Lap 9.

Slowing for a caution, the field assembled single file with slower cars in line where they were running. On the restart, Dusty Zomer jumped around a slower car before the cone. Without another pause in the race to assess the penalty, the No. 82 was docked two spots at the end of the race.

Having to exchange Shark Racing Engines on the No. 87, Aaron Reutzel forfeited his pole starting position, but was able to rebound to the runner up spot from 12th. Zomer was credited with third. John Carney II came from eighth to finish fourth, with Seth Bergman rounding out the top-five.

Josh Baughman crossed sixth with James Mosher gaining six spots to end up seventh. Ryan Linder charged from 22nd to eighth with Bob Ream Jr. and Tyler Thomas completing the top-ten.

By finishing in the top-four, Forler, Reutzel, Zomer, and Carney are locked into Saturday’s Copper on Dirt Finale at the USA Raceway.
