Denny Gross wins first race in 11 years in "358" sprint makeup from 8/2

Earlier in the evening, Denny Gross started on the pole and led every lap to score his first "358" sprint win in 11 years in the make-up feature from last Saturday night.

Gross started on the pole and dominated the early stages of the race while many of the division’s top drivers were working their way from the back of the pack. But it got interesting at the end.

Jeff Rohrbaugh started 14th and closed quickly on Gross after getting by Colt White for second on the 18th lap. What had been a substantial lead dwindled to less than a car length at the finish.
