Clay Rogers Looking to Rebound at MMS: Point’s leader Clay Rogers, who won the first three races of the season, did not have the finish he was hoping for at Southern National Motorsports Park. After fighting a tight handling car, Rogers was trying his best to ride things out until a caution flew. On Lap 94 Roger’s became the caution when his #16 Lamb & Robinson Ford went up in flames down the front stretch. Rogers was unharmed in the incident and had to accept his first disappointing finish of the year. Though this incident didn’t hurt his point’s lead by much, it did allow second place man in the standings, JP Morgan to gain 42 points on the leader, narrowing Rogers points lead to 108.
