Drawing 48 Late Models for the event sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) and the Comp Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS), Ricky’s second-place finish in his heat placed him on the sixth row for the preliminary feature. With $5,000 on the line, Thornton gained three spots in the 30-lap affair to finish ninth.
Rolling off on the fifth row for Saturday’s $50,000-to-win Topless 100, Thornton was unable to gain any ground in the 100-lapper, crossing the line in 16th.
