...Kevin Pylant was having a great Thursday night at Gold Cup 2002 until the feature. He timed in second quick, ran second in his heat, won the second O'Reilly Dash, and was starting outside front row for the feature. The A-main start was horrible, and should have been called back, as Pylant was in 5th at the flag-stand. The green stayed on, and then Pylant hurried to catch up in turn three, and spun out. Relegated to the tail, with no-laps in, Kevin ended-up 21st in the feature at the checkered, and also took a heavy points blow.
