continued Defending Ernie's Discount Tools Modified champion Patrick Dupree began the night as the point leader, but he suffered electrical problems in his heat race and started at the rear of the field in a back-up car that was soon sidelined with a broken panhard bar.
Roy now leads Dupree 460-448 with three point races remaining. Foley is in third place another 14 points back.
