Earl Pearson, Jr. Masters Night Two of the Masters!

(Dunn, NC, June 20, 2004) Earl Pearson Jr., the Jacksonville, FL driver of the Lucas Oil Products / Dunn-Benson Ford, #1 Ford Taurus Mastered night two of the Stacker2® Xtreme DirtCar Series / Northern Xtreme DirtCar Series co-sanctioned “6 th Annual Masters” event Saturday at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, WI in front of the Speed Channel cameras with a big win!

Pearson Jr. started second on the outside of the front row in the $10,000 to win main event and tracked down early race leader Donnie Moran in lapped traffic to take the lead on lap 20. Once in front, the driver of the Lucas Oil Products / Dunn-Benson Ford, Rocket Chassis, Larry Wallace Racing Engines, #1 Ford Taurus Team never looked back in the non-stop feature finishing ahead of second place Donnie Moran by one second to score his second Stacker2® XDCS win of the season! In addition to the win in t he $42,000 event that attracted 67 cars to the high-banked 3/8th mile speedway, Pearson Jr. earned his seventh Ringers Gloves Time Trials Fast Qualifier award with a new track record of 13.379 seconds and also won the MSD Ignition / Mason Racin'', Inc. heat race one victory .

The big win helped to ease the pain of night one where Pearson, Jr. while contending for the win had the right side of the car torn off by a competitor in a move that defies all explanation. With a severely damaged car Pearson, Jr. still managed to pull of a solid top ten finish with a Seventh place finish. Following night one Pearson, Jr. fell to third in XDCS points, but with the big win on night two he solidly regained his second place status in XDCS points and narrowed the gap between himself and first place in points Jimmy Mars to 75 points.
