May 23rd – New motivation this week would see some guys stepping up their game to win Outlaw race #2 at Speedway 95 this season. Series director, Derek Mingo wanted to see some new winners in victory lane, setting a $100 bounty for anyone that could dethrone 7 in a row winner, carrying from last season, Kris Watson.

This would move Joe Legere up to the outside pole for the 50 lap main event, and he would grab the lead from lap 1 and set the pace for the first 9 circuits. Ricky Burgess Jr,the heat 2 winner, would then make the pass for the top spot and look to be the one to beat as he started to put a sizeable distance on the pack. He would lead to lap 36 when he brought out the 3rd yellow of the night, blowing up in turn 3 and pulling down onto the infield. The restart would see 7 in a row winner, Kris Watson and Joey Doyon out front battling side by side, with Watson leading laps 37 thru 40 by a nose. Doyon would clear Watson for control on lap 41 until Joe Legere spun in turn 3 on lap 42, bouncing off Kris Matchett and bringing out the final yellow. Watson had one last chance to defend his series dominance, but Doyon was relentless once again on the restart, using up all the inside that Watson would allow, and making slight contact on the way to his first win, and collecting the $100 bounty that was set over Kris Watson. Watson was 2nd, and Kris Matchett 3rd. Dale Swoboda took a happy 4th, as he subbed in for Dynomite Dylan Street in the #30, and Mike Overlock rounded out the top 5.
