S. COFFEYVILLE, OK (June 29, 2000) Eddie Martin Stilwell, OK picked up his first ever USMTS win on this warm night in north Oklahoma.

For the race, Martin lead all 40 laps and pocketed the $2,000 paycheck.
Thirty-eight cars checked in for the racing action.
Noble started the race from the seventh row again tonight and worked his way through traffic to finish third and take the lead in the Olympic Fire Protection Hard Charger Program.

Heat race winners were Jason Hughes, Bone, Martin and Jeremy Chambers. B-mains were won by Noble and Steve Lacy.
