KINGSPORT, TN - The Southeast Super Truck Series made its first of two scheduled visits this season to Kingsport Speedway in Kingsport, TN on Friday, with a big crowd of fans present from around Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.<br />
There's an old saying that once you leave home, you can't go back. But Wade Day, from Seymour, TN, proved that to be wrong as the former Kingsport Speedway champion made his first-ever Southeast Super Truck Series start one to remember by parking in victory lane. Day moved into the lead on lap 13 of the 75-lap event and once out front remained there until the checkered flag waved for his 28th career victory at the track.<br />
Lee Tissot set fast-time at 15.569 seconds, but following the invert of the top three from time trials Matt Leicht started from the pole and Randy Porter on the outside of the front row, with Tissot inside of row two beside of Tim Lollis.<br />
On the first attempt to start the race, with the green flag waving it appeared Matt Leicht missed a shift and behind him mass chaos ensued with trucks wrecking all along the front straightaway. Besides Leicht, also involved were Tissot, David Flynn, Dakota Slagle, Kevin Leicht, Kaleb Pressley, Cole Glasson and Bennie Davis. With the red flag displayed while the track safety crew cleaned the accident scene, the pits were busy with activity as crews tried to pull mangled sheet-metal to get their truck back on-track for the race.<br />
The second try to get under green proved to be much more successful. Over the first five circuits Porter and Lollis raced side-by-side before Lollis moved ahead. But lurking right behind them was Day.<br />
Day rode to the outside of Porter on lap 10, racing between turns one and two and moved into second, setting his sights ahead on Lollis. Some say the number 13 is unlucky, but for Day it was lucky as he passed Lollis for the lead on lap 13
