Both Udell and Hardeman, who qualified 16th and 18th respectively earlier on Saturday, improved on their starting positions and would have likely finished in the top-10 if not for a pair of early spins. “They did a really good job,” said Moorespeed President David Moore. “Today they both had really good race pace. Unfortunately, Will got tagged, went all the way back to dead last but got 10 positions back to finish 17th on the leader's pace. Alec...
