Ron Wills and Chris Lancaster traded the lead for 144 laps before Wills took the lead for good and won the 200-lap Egggstravaganza Enduro on Saturday night at All American Speedway.

Larry Moniz paced the 15-car field for 56 laps, and Lancaster took the lead on lap 57. Wills took the lead on lap 69, and Lancaster ran second for the next 59 laps before moving in front. Wills started eighth and Lancaster ninth.

Wills regained the lead on lap 144, and Lancaster came back to move ahead on laps 152 and 153. Wills took the lead for the last time on lap 154 and set the pace for the final 46 circuits around the wet, soapy, egg-splattered one-third-mile track.

Wills and Lancaster were the only two cars to complete all 200 laps. Lorin Chitwood moved into third place on lap 64 and ran third the rest of the way, completing 199 laps.
