STANLEYâ€” Mooresvilleâ€™s Ray Dockery continued his winning way with a third victory in four Late Model feature starts at East Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night.
He won his heat race, started from the pole, then charged unchallenged to victory in the 20-lap main event. David Lindsey finished second, David Yandle third, Dan Yarbrough fourth and Keith Bowman fifth.
â€œThree wins in four weeks is just about as good as it can get,â€ said Dockery in victory lane.
