Hobby Stock event at Outlaw tonight

The third annual $2,000-to-win, 30-lap Hobby Stock Shootout runs tonight at Outlaw Motor Speedway, and if the season’s points race that concluded last week is any indication, it could be one of the best in the short history of the race.

Muskogee’s Dale Richardson took home his first career points championship after holding off Randy Moses II, Ray Hutcherson, Randy Moses Sr., and Fort Gibson’s Lynn Combs as the top five positions all had a shot at the title with two weeks remaining.

Richardson shut the door after he picked up his fifth win in 2006 on the next to last week of the point season. He is also the career wins leader at Outlaw with 17.

The hands down favorite for this season’s Shootout has to be Richardson, who is also the career wins leader at the Outlaw with 17.

Last season it was Kyle Berry of Popular Bluff, Missouri that took home the bounty and the win while holding off Fort Smith, Ark.’s Chuck Knight, South Coffeyville’s Matt Collins and Bartlesville’s Joseph Gorby’s in the process.

Racing begins at 8 p.m.

Wagoner’s Biffle 12th in bass event

KIMBERLING CITY, Mo. — While most of his competitors were fishing deep, Elite rookie Bill Lowen of Cincinnati, Ohio, defied the trend Friday by fishing in shallow river water at Table Rock Lake. The move gave him a narrow yet important lead after twp rounds of The Rock, the final event of the 11-tournament CITGO Bassmaster Elite Series season.

Lowen caught five largemouth bass Friday weighing 11 pounds, 11 ounces, giving him a two-day total of 24-14. While the angler’s objective at this tournament was to finish well enough to qualify for the 2007 CITGO Bassmaster Classic in Alabama, the 31-year-old was thrilled to lead the charge for the $100,000 top prize and capture his first BASS win
