OSKALOOSA, IA (July 29, 1999) - The yellow flag that 21 of the 22 drivers in Thursday's NAPA Winner Series feature wanted to see never came out.

Mark Elliott of Webster City pulled away from his competition at Southern Iowa Speedway, winning for the record-tying sixth time this year on the I.M.C.A. Sunoco Stock Car series circuit.

The 25-lapper saw just one caution flag, on the seventh circuit, so there was no re-start to bring the field back together. Showing their muscle on the big half-mile track at Oskaloosa, the top four cars finished well in front.

Following Elliott across the finish line were Bobby Greiner Jr. of Ottumwa, John Knowler of Sigourney and Howard Gordon Jr. of New Sharon.

Mark Smyser of Lancaster, Mo., and Knowler started on the front row for the main event, which sported a good blend of series regulars and local drivers.

Knowler, Greiner, Elliott and Jim Lynch of Bloomfield made up the top four over the first seven laps. Elliott took the lead after what would be the only re-start of the race and led to the finish.

His six wins in '99 matches the single-season record established by Scott Davis of Madrid, in 1997. Davis' total of 10 series wins is the next target in sight for Elliott, who now has eight career NAPA victories.
