Race 2 of the 2009 Pro Truck Nationals series kicked off on Friday in Bonne Terre, MO at Big River Sand Drags. Ben Dozeman was the big winner on the night, making it back-to-back wins in 3.5 Index class action. Dozeman, from Michigan, defeated Kentucky’s Ryan Wilson in the final round. Friday’s action also saw a strong ATV Index class with Art Gordon defeating Kevin Betzer in the final round. The night’s Grudge Match was scrapped when Josh Stephens suffered major driveline damage on a test pass earlier in the day. Scott Scheytt came out anyways and ran a nice 2.874/113.64mph pass. Time trial action starts early in the afternoon on Saturday. Stay tuned to NSDN for all the latest.
