Justin Williams scores eighth Late Model victory; Adkins gets fifth win; Powell, Polevoy and Hutchens all take first victories of the season

Jamaica, VA – What looked to be a race long battle in the Victory Lap Late Model feature between Billy Hubbard of Gloucester, VA and Justin Williams of Shipman, VA turned into a runaway win by Williams when Hubbard broke on lap 17 while leading. Williams would cruise to his eighth win of the season at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway. In other action Jared Powell (Aaron’s Pro Late Model), Joey Polevoy (Budweiser Modified), Brett Adkins (Truckin Thunder Sportsman) and Hutchens (Collision One Limited Stock Car) all picked up wins. Anthony Kincaid and Billy Hubbard led the Victory Lap Late Model field to green for their 30 lap feature with Hubbard rocketing to the lead followed by Justin Williams who started sixth. Tucker and Williams were both on a rail with Williams looking to the outside for the lead. On lap 12 Hubbard bobbled in turn 2 but Williams had to check up so he wouldn’t run Hubbard over. For the next five laps the two battled for the top spot until Hubbard broke in turn 2 handing the lead to Williams. Williams would go unchallenged the rest of the way to take his eighth win of the season. Billy Tucker, John Staton, Buck Roadcap and Stephen Childress followed to the checkers. Jared Powell led all but the final two laps of the Aaron’s Pro Late Model feature and looked to have finished second to Daniel Baggerly. That was until Baggerly’s car came up two pounds light at the scales handing the win to Powell. It was Powell’s first win of the season. It took a couple of starts to get the Pro Late Model feature under green but once it did Powell took control of the top spot. For the next 14 laps Thompson tried every possible way around to Powell for the lead. On lap 15 Daniel Baggerly took over second and reeled in the leader. Baggerly went to work on Powell, working both high and low. As the two came out of four to the white flag Baggerly took over the top spot and held on to what looked like the win. At the scales Baggerly’s car came up light awarding the win to Powell. Mark Parks, Bobby Thompson, Tyler Bare and Jimmy Duncan rounded out the top five. Joey Polevoy used a front row starting position to take control of the lead and go on to take his first win of the season. Polevoy and Lance Grady led the field to green with Polevoy rocketing to the top spot. Brian Maxey followed Poelvoy to take second. Maxey tried several times to get under Polevoy but each time was turned away. A late caution with three to go gave Maxey one last chance but Polevoy was able to hold on for the victory. Maxey, Grady, Francis Jarrelle III and Brandon Galloway rounded out the top five. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman Davey Pullen and Brett Adkins led the field to green with Adkins grabbing the lead out of turn 2. Once out front Adkins pulled away from the rest of the field. Behind the leader they battled for second. Pullen, Matt Ashworth, Jeremiah Marshall and Junior Carter all worked to take over the runner up spot. No one had anything for Adkins as he cruised to his fifth win of the season. Pullen, Carter, Hunter Shelton and Marshall rounded out the top five. Ryan Hutchens took the lead in the Collision One Limited Stock Car 20 lap feature with two to go and then hold off everyone off on the final restart to take home his career first victory. Andrew Tarbox and Brian Bradley led the field to green with Bradley taking the lead out of turn 2. Bradley held off challenges from several drivers until lap 18 when seventh starting Hutchens drove under him on lap 17 to take the lead. On the next lap a caution would close the field on his bumper for a green, white checker finish. On the restart Hutchens pulled away to get his career first win. Stephen Childress, Brandon Sandridge, Bradley and Chad Champion were the balance of the top five.
