In a race to try to capture the lead from Rich Loch, during the Alan Kulwicki 60 lap Memorial race, on Sunday, May 18th, Dennis' chance was taken away, when he sustained a flat right front tire, while driving the Wiedmeyer Express #22. 
Dale Prunty, driving Black Betty, was also taken out of the race, after getting caught up in an incident that involved Braison Bennett and Dave McCardle, that caused damage to the left front fender and tire.
