The Pro All Stars Series made their second of three 2004 appearance at WMMP and it was a great one. When the smoked cleared it was Rick Martin picking up his first win of the season. Second place finisher Ben Rowe put on what might be the drive of the year.
After starting on the pole he had contact Sam Sessions, had a tire go down and by the time he got going again he lost a lap. After pitting he restarted 16th (including lapped cars) he past everyone on the track to get back on the lead lap.
Shortly there after the caution came out putting him at the back of the pack again. This time he past everyone but Martin just as the checkers flew. Gary Smith was third.
