PHOTO FINISH: Sweet Stuns McFadden by 0.012-Seconds in 34 Raceway Thriller

The difference was twelve, one-thousandths of a second (0.012) on Friday at 34 Raceway as Brad Sweet and James McFadden wowed the Iowa fans with the closest finish in Kubota High Limit Racing history.

It was all about traffic in the non-stop 30-lapper and came down to the final few feet when all was said and done.

Starting from the pole position, McFadden quickly assumed the lead and controlled the opening 25 circuits, never leaving the low-line once. The last 10 laps, however, became a cat and mouse game as Sweet threw caution to the wind and went top shelf to try something else. With McFadden boxed in on the bottom, Sweet was able to rip around the outside of turns 3 & 4 to steal the lead coming to Lap 26.

While they battled down the stretch, it ultimately came down to a photo finish at the checkered flag with Sweet against the wall and McFadden directly inside.

The final margin of victory? A mere 0.012-seconds.

For Sweet, it's his third-straight victory and fifth-career win with Kubota High Limit Racing - overtaking Rico Abreu and Kyle Larson for most wins with the series.

James McFadden, Brent Marks, Aaron Reutzel, and Brian Brown rounded out the top-five.

Tanner Thorson, Cory Eliason, Corey Day, Chris Windom, and Zeb Wise closed out the top-10.
