Grand National driver Mike McMahon of Van Buren was looking for his first win of the 2014 season as Crawford County Speedway kicked of the annual $500 to win 30-lap Terry Brown Memorial Race. However, it was Billy Wheeler who earned the victory.

McMahon qualified to start on the inside pole in front of a 15-car field,with Uniontown’s, Chris Coughran sitting on the outside. With several heavy contenders right behind the pole setters, including Roy Long, Roger Carter of Cedarville, Kyle McAllister and Thurman Blanton.

McMahon jumped into the lead followed by Coughran, Long, Carter racing three and four wide. By Lap 5, point leader Wheeler of Muldrow moved passed Carter into fourth. Coughran spun out going into Turn 3 and 4. That allowed Wheeler and Long to move into the second and third spots.

McMahon continued his lead when he drifted high and spun. This resulted in a caution and sent him to the back. Wheeler took over the lead with McAllister moving quickly from fourth to second followed by Long and two-time champion Brandon Hunter of Cedarville, who began the race in 14th. Grant Davis, who won back on Aug. 2, moved from eighth to fifth.

McMahon worked his way to sixth during Lap 24 when his race car slammed the wall climbing up over the concrete barrier sending him into the safety fence and tearing a five-foot hole in the fencing. McMahon was uninjured but car received heavy damage. Wheeler took home the $500 to Win Terry Brown Memorial Grand National feature for the first time at CCS followed by McAllister, Long, Hunter and Blanton.
