by Brian Neal Memphis, MO (June 12, 2004) - Memphis Auto and Truck night at the Bentz GM Country Scotland County Speedway saw a total of 129 cars sign in to due battle in front of huge crowd.

Denny Woodworth took advantage of his front row start to grab the lead on lap 1 of the 20-lap Late Model feature, with Jody Wood close behind in second. Woodworth would hold the lead until lap 2, when he slowed going down the backstretch with mechanical problems, giving the lead to Wood. Wood and Thad Trump were battling for the lead, as Tommy Elston, who started 10th, was working his way towards the front. Elston would grab the top spot from Wood on lap 12 and then lead the final 8 laps to pick up his second win in a row at Memphis. Wood was 2nd, Terry Schilpman was 3rd, Trump was 4th, with Mark Burgtorf rounding out the top five. Trump and Burgtorf claimed heat race wins.

The 20-lap USRA Modified feature saw newcomer Kelly Smith jump out front on lap 1, with Tony Fraise close behind in second. Smith, who was running the top of the speedway, and Fraise, who was on the bottom of the track, battled for the top spot for the next four laps, before Fraise moved out front on lap 5. Fraise would hold the lead until lap 9 when Brad Pinkerton jumped to the outside of him to take over the top spot. Fraise would come back on the bottom of the track to grab the lead on lap 11 and then held off Mark Burgtorf, who started 10th, on the final lap to claim his second win in a row at the speedway.
