MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Nov. 19) The only DNF of the 2013 season happened in the last race of the season, The SAS Gobbler at Cleveland Speedway, Saturday night when Billy had no place to go when cars spun in front of him.
Ogle was banished to the back of the starting field and started 24th when the scales said the car was light after he had won the consolation race. In 10 laps he had worked his way to 11th when two cars spun in front of him. He had no place to go and was caught up in the wreck and that was it for the night and the season.
“We have been running that car for two years and never put a piece of lead on it. Then we come up light on the scales after winning the consi and that put us starting 24th in the feature,” said David. “Billy was doing a good job taking his time moving through the field when he got caught up in that deal.”
