Persistance goes the distance for Taylor

Troy Taylor had himself a day... well most of it.

Taylor's day began when his wife accidentally left her cell phone on the truck. It fell off and was later found in pieces on I-45.

Then later, Taylor's transmission gave up the ghost and he was stranded until a friend with a wrecker could get there.

But wait, there's more. The wrecker broke down on the way.

So it was nothing short of amazing that Taylor made it to Battleground Speedway Saturday night to race at all, but when he did he made it count by winning the 25-lap feature over two-time Touring Outlaw Modified Series champion Triston Dycus and Chris Brown.

It was a battle of attrition as only nine of the 21 starters were still running at the end after numerous cautions and some eroding track conditions which tore up quite a few cars, including third-place finisher Brown's No. 21.

And, oh yes, on the final lap Taylor wasn't done with his day yet. The water pump busted, sending a puff of black smoke into the air.
