WACO, Texas (April 5, 2024) – A race night that saw a who’s who of IMCA Sunoco Stock Car drivers in the EQ Cylinder Heads Southern Region saw Jeffrey Abbey stand tallest at the end of the evening.

Abbey got the best of the rest of a star-filled field at Heart O’ Texas Speedway’s fifth annual Baby Blue Harcrow Memorial, scoring both a $1,515 payday and B & B Racing Chassis All-Star Invitational qualifying eligibility.

“There were a lot of good cars here,” said Abbey, also the Harcrow race winner in 2022. “But we got a couple good breaks and were able to win it.”

After starting seventh, he’d run with the likes of Blake Clark, Cody Smith and Jason Batt before passing pole starter Paul White for the point with 10 laps remaining.

“I caught a couple breaks. Jason pushed up a bit and I was able to get by him,” Abbey said. “Then the next time around Paul pushed up and I was able to get by him, too.”

“Once we got the lead it was pretty smooth sailing.”

P.J. Egbert hauled the mail from 14th starting to runner-up money.

The 11th starting Smith,  13th starting G.W. Egbert IV and White completed the top five.
