(Photo by Joe Orth) Bubak stretched his lead to six car lengths by lap 14 but he could not shake Martin completely. Martin managed to close on him in heavy lapped traffic as the race went the rest of the way cau­tion free but could not catch him.  Johnson led lap one of the qualifier with Bubak, Martin and Luke Cranston close behind.  “I knew that there were some really good drivers starting up there. Jason was our biggest worry,” Bu­bak said. “Once I got to the lead the car was really good. I could move around and go wher­ever I wanted to. I just picked the line that I felt most comfortable with and it worked out.” Cole Krichau was the Mach-1 Sport Compact winner.center_img Bubak came home first, Martin second, Johnson third and Cranston fourth.
