DAYTONA BEACH -- John Wes Townley started on the pole and finished in Gatorade Victory Lane Saturday capturing the 50th annual Lucas Oil 200 presented by MAVTV American Real at Daytona International Speedway.
The race marked Townley's eighth start at the "World Center of Racing," and his first career pole and win in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards. His previous best finish in the series also came at DIS when he finished third in 2010.
The video from youtube is far from great, but the 99-yard kick-off return for a touchdown by Raheem Mostert for the Purdue Boilermakers in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl is spectacular. The touchdown by the 2011 NSB High graduate and Cudas great was the difference maker in Purdue's 37-32 win Tuesday over the Western Michigan Broncos.
NEW SMYRNA BEACH -- New Smyrna Beach High School alumnus Raheem Mostert made the biggest run of his life and got featured on ESPN's SportsCenter.
