Dustin Linville Picks Up First Victory of 2014 Season at Ponderosa Speedway
1(April 5, 2014) Dustin went to Victory Lane for the first time in 2014 after the team made an unannounced trip to Ponderosa Speedway (Junction City, Kentucky) on Saturday evening for the track's season opening event.

Linville was the top qualifier and went on to win the first heat race, positioning him on the pole for the 25 lap main event. When the feature went green, the Rooster bolted to the race lead immediately and began to pull away. By lap ten of the affair the Bryantsville, Kentucky ace had put all but the second through fifth place competitors a lap down. But disaster would strike for Dustin on lap sixteen when contact with a slower car sent his #D8 Johnny Maco's Electric/Paul Benton Auto Body/Swartz Race Car/Bullock Race Engines powered Super Late Model into a spin in turn three. Linville would restart as the last car on the lead lap in fifth, but wouldn't remain there for long as the field came back to green and Dustin regained the top spot just one circuit later. Linville lead the closing laps to score the win over Gary Yeager, Chris Johnson, Glen Hounshell Jr., and Dion Benningfield.
