Pevely, MO (August 7th, 2010) Bobby Bittle took the lead at the drop of the green flag from his front row pole starting spot and never looked back. Bittle led from flag to flag for the win. Jeff Leka took over the second spot early in the main event, but was unable to make a serious threat for the lead as Bittle worked lapped traffic flawlessly. Rusty Griffaw would finish third, a few car-lengths behind Leka. Paul Bauman would finish a distant fourth with Ken Rumble taking fifth. Bittle was flying through the field and lapped all but the first eight finishers.

Pevely, MO-August 6, 2010- Tim Shaffer has been the hottest driver in all of racing over the last week.

He extended that streak to five consecutive wins in seven days, as he was victorious in the opener of the two-day event at the high-banked 1/3-mile bullring.
Shaffer started on the front row of the 30-lapper and chased Jason Sides, who started on the pole, in the early going. For Shaffer, it was his first World of Outlaws win of the season and the 13th of his career.
