Stratton and Dobson closing in on 1,000 wins
« Return to News
A pair of rising stars, Jordan Stratton (21) and Billy Dobson (24), are each approaching 1000 career victories and both added to their win-totals yesterday at Monticello Raceway.
Stratton won five races and now needs just 14 more victories to join Walter Case Jr. as only the second driver in the sports history to reach 1000 wins before his 22nd birthday. Stratton will be 22 on June 30. Case accomplished his feat in 1982.
Stratton won the second race with Charles Strukel’s Jomega ($9.70) in 1:59:2 and then scored with Colin Johnson’s Mae’s Blue Boy ($70.50) in 1:58:2 in the fifth race.
Dobson, another the many talented youngsters at the Mighty M, reined two winners and is just nine victories from the 1000 win plateau. Dobson scored with Gary Haase’s Dream Big ED ($4.40) in 1:59:3 in the third race and then won the 12th with Barry Charles’s Noble Wabbit ($4.80) in 1:58 in the 12th. (Monticello)
