Troy Dotson Crowned Faster Pastor; Hensley, Adkins, Jamison, Smith and Pendleton Conquer Brushcreek
(Peebles, Ohio) On a typical Sunday morning, area pastors can be found preaching the bible to their congregations, but on Saturday July 10 many of them traded their pulpit for a drivers seat in the 7th Annual Jesus Motorsports Outreach Faster Pastor Race. The annual event pits area pastors and co pastors against each other in a 4 cylinder stock car race. Troy Dotson of Tranquility Community Church stormed from his tenth starting position to claim the 2010 faster pastor title.
In other action Walton, Kentucky’s “Big Show” Robby Hensley stormed to the late model feature win. West Portsmouth, Ohio’s Doug Adkins rolled to the modified feature win. Peebles, Ohio’s Dave Jamison charged to the legend feature win. Bainbridge, Ohio’s Rex Smith Jr. thundered to the crazy compact win and Lucasville, Ohio’s Darren Pendleton took the bomber feature win.
After two failed attempts to start the late model feature, the field was lined up for a single file start. At the drop of the green Robby Hensley shot into turn one with Josh Tidwell mounting a challenge under him. Hensley fought back down the back stretch pulling a car length in front of Tidwell.

Hopefully we can come back and win us a Harley so that’s what we’re here for” “ Pretty cool track tonight; track was really good it slicked off a little bit, but moisture came back a little bit tonight so it was a really fast track” “I don’t know what our times was but pretty awesome race tonight” said Adkins in victory lane.
