He led all 25 laps from the pole in topping the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifier. The victory was his fourth of 2018 and came on the final day of the IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly point season. “This is one we’ve wanted to get for a while,” said Money, runner-up in the second of two Clash features last year. “Kurtis (Pihl) chased me into lapped traffic but I got clean air after the restart.” The first 17 circuits ran green before back-to-back cautions waved.
