ELM MOTT — Racing under a full moon often seems to bring out wrecks and rollovers, but it didn’t bother G.W. Egbert IV Friday night at Heart O’ Texas Speedway in his feature-winning IMCA Stock Car run.

Egbert started fourth in a 15-car main event and took over  the lead during circuit seven of a 15-lap race after successfully escaping a three-wide sandwich exiting turn four.

The Salado racer battled points leader Benji Kirkpatrick of Elm Mott the rest of the way, pulling into Victory Lane three car lengths ahead of Kirkpatrick.
