The Texas driver led three times for 43 laps in the annual Allen Crowe Memorial 100 race on the historic 1-mile clay oval.

For the second event in a row, Mason Mitchell set fast time in qualifying among the 28 cars posting times. 

The 19-year-old driver circled the 1-mile oval in 32.408 seconds (or 111.084 mph). 

Kelly Kovski just missed the top spot with a qualifying time of 32.478 seconds (110.844 mph). 

Kovski was followed by Brennan Poole, Mason Mingus and Taylor Ferns to round out the top five qualifiers.  

The race had four cautions for a total of 24 laps.

The race had seven leaders among five different drivers including; Mason Mitchell 1-21 (21 laps), Brennan Poole 22-50, 89-94, 97-104 (43 laps), Frank Kimmel 51-70 (20 laps), A.J. Fike 71-88 (18 laps) and Spencer Gallagher 95-96 (2 laps).

In the end, Brennan Poole took the lead from Spencer Gallagher on lap 98, but a late caution would extend the 100-lap race another four circuits setting up a green-white-checker finish. 

Poole fought off Gallagher the final two laps to claim his second win of the season. Poole also won at Michigan International Speedway back in June. 

Spencer Gallagher, who started 12th, finished in second place .481 seconds behind Poole. 

Tom Hessert finished in third place followed by Frank Kimmel and Justin Boston in fourth and fifth, respectively.

The race will be televised on August 23rd at 11:00 pm (ET) on NBC Sports Network.
