For some odd reason, $10,000 seems to bring drivers from all around the country.

Earl Pearson, Jr. was one of them.

Coming all the way from Jacksonville, Fla. to Midway Speedway, Pearson made the trip worth it by winning the featured Late Model event. D. J. Cline held the lead for 8 of the first 9 laps, but then, it was Pearson's time. He would not let go of the lead the rest of the way through. Incredibly, the 75 laps did not feature any accidents.

Meanwhile, Corey Conley won Modified's and Wayne Shaw won the Pure Stock event.

As for Muskingum County Speedway, rain hit three times, therefore ending the evening prematurely and wiping out the main events. They'll be made up on Wednesday night.
