Williams Outduels Hubbard for Pro Late Model Victory on Pepsi Night; Chase Butler Scores Career First in Modifieds; Casey and Givens also Grab Victories

Jamaica, VA – Justin Williams of Concord, VA and Billy Hubbard of Cobbs Creek, VA put on a battle for the ages. The two exchanged the lead four times before Williams would finally take over the top spot for good with a slide job on a lap 30 restart. Williams would then survive one last caution with two laps to go to score his third Victory Lap Pro Late Model win of the season on Pepsi Night. “All the drivers here are pretty tough when you can start sixth and come up and get the win and pass someone like Billy (Hubbard); I would say he’s won two in a row but one of them got taken away from him. I had to throw a little slide job on him to get by him,” commented Williams in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rounding out the top five were Davis Lipscombe, Russell Erwin in his first race, Billy Hubbard and Corey Almond. In other action Chase Butler of Mechanicsville, VA scored his career first Budweiser Modified win, taking the lead on lap 11 and then holding off point leader Hunter McClendon for the victory. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman feature Steve Causey of Smithfield, VA returned to victory lane with his run from shotgun on the field, and in the Collision One Limited Stock Car 25 lap feature James Givens of Henrico, VA won for the third time this season. In the Victory Lap Pro Late Model 35 lap feature Troy Williams and Billy Hubbard led the field to green with Hubbard jumping to the lead out of turn 2. Once out front, Hubbard began to pull away. Behind him, Justin Williams would dice his way from his sixth-place starting spot to second by lap 12. With Hubbard working traffic, Williams began to close the gap. By lap 17 Williams had caught Hubbard in traffic and got inside him to take the lead on lap 18. Hubbard would fight back on the outside and regain the lead at the line the next lap. The two were aggressively working lapped traffic, almost getting into a couple of slower cars as they negotiated the lapped traffic. On a lap 30 restart Williams would put a slide job on Hubbard in turn 1 and take over the top spot. A caution on lap 33 set up a two lap shootout for the win. On the races final restart Hubbard tried to go around William’s on the outside, jumping the cushion allowing Williams to get away and Davis Lipscombe and Russell Erwin to get by for second and third with Hubbard and Corey Almond rounding out the top five. In the Budweiser Modified 30 lap feature Chase Butler and Francis Jarelle led the 23 car field to green with Jarelle leading the first circuit. Several positions back Hunter McClendon and Joey Polevoy battled for fourth just as the caution flew for the first time. On a lap 11 Jarrelle decided on a different tactic for the restart, this time waiting till turn 4 to get back in the gas. This time Butler was up for the challenge and jumped to the inside of Jarrelle heading into turn 1 and finally taking the lead out of turn 3. On lap 12 Brandon Galloway got by Jarrelle for second but would lose that position on lap 17 to McClendon. On lap 22 a caution erased all the distance between Butler and McClendon. On the restart, Butler would get a good jump and pull away by five car lengths but another caution on lap 24 would once again come back out and close the field on Butler’s bumper. Races the final restart Butler would once again get a great restart and pull away by six car lengths and go on to score his career-first victory in the Modified division. Rounding out the top five were Hunter McClendon, Brandon Galloway, Jeff Solinger and Lance Grady. The first three laps of the 30 lap Truckin thunder Sportsman feature might have been the most exciting of the night. Brett Adkins and Chase Burrow led the field to green with Adkins taking the lead out of turn 4. On the next circuit Burrow, chad Beahr, Matt Ashworth and Tyler Shipp tried to make it four-wide out of turn 2 with Shipp ending up in the backstretch wall ending the point leader’s night. On the restart Burrow was all over the back of Adkins while Joe Weiss attempted to make it three-wide. Heading into turn 1 Burrow slid under Adkins with the two touching, sending Burrow to the lead with Tim Shelton and Weiss working to his inside in turn 2 making it three-wide. Contact would send Burrow spinning bringing out the caution. Weiss would inherit the lead when Adkins would have to retire with mechanical issues. The race picked up again on lap 22 when Causey took the lead from Weiss out of turn 4. The two raced side by side for the next four laps before Causey would take the lead for good and go on to score his first win of 2019. Rounding out the top five were Joe Weiss, Chase Burrow, Tommy Upshaw, and Chad Beahr. In the Collision One Limited Stock 25 lap feature Trent Clemans and Chad Champion led the field to green with Clemans leading the first circuit. The top five cars all put on a great show for the fans with Clemans holding on to the top spot. James Givens would get to second on lap 7 and began pressuring Clemans for the lead. Clemans looked to have the car to win but Givens got to his bumper on lap 17 giving him a bump to move him up the track to take the lead.

Overton would take the lead on lap 21 and looked to have the race in hand that is until lap 56 when Eckert began to pressure Overton for the lead. On the final lap Eckert worked under Overton in turn 3, the two raced side by side back to the finish line with Overton holding off Eckert for the win. “I was just holding on there the last couple of laps, I guess Billy (Vacek) was riding with us tonight; I wanted to win the other night at Fayetteville but I will take this $20,000 over that $10,000 any day,” commented a very emotional Brandon Overton in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rick Eckert, Ross Bailes, Zack Mitchell, and Chris Ferguson rounded out the top five. In other action Carson Ferguson of Charlotte, NC was at the right place at the right time, taking the lead when race leader Layton Sullivan blew a right rear tire coming out of turn 4 heading to the checkers to score the $3000 victory in a caution-filled FASTRAK Racing Touring Series 40 lap feature. It was Ferguson’s third touring series win in a row. Rounding out the top five were Trevor Feathers, Layton Sullivan, Corey Almond and Ryan Adams. Ross Bailes and Michael Brown led the 30 car field to green with Brown taking the lead out of turn 2 followed by Chris Ferguson. Bailes would take second back on the next circuit. By lap 5 brown had worked to a two-car length advantage. The races first caution would fall on lap 7 for a stopped Corey Gordon in turn 4. On the restart, Bailes rocketed around Brown in turn 1 and 2 to take over the top spot. On lap 9 Brandon Overton went to second with an inside pass of Brown in turn 2. By Lap 16 Overton was within a car length of Bailes as they approached lapped traffic. On lap 18 Overton was on the back of Bailes as they began to enter the lapped traffic. On lap 20 Overton made his move, getting to the inside of Bailes out of turn 2. They raced side by side until turn 4 where Overton took over the lead. Eric Erwin would bring out the caution on lap 21 as he slowed in turn 4. On the restart Overton jumped out to a quick two-car length lead while Rick Eckert went from fifth to third in two corners, getting by Chris Ferguson and Brown. By lap 30 Overton was back in lapped traffic allowing Bailes and Eckert to close. Just as it looked like things were going to get interesting Trevor Feathers brought out the third caution of the race when his car slowed going down the backstretch. On the lap 32 restart, Overton once again jumped to a three car length advantage over Bailes and Eckert. On lap 36 Casey Roberts, who had made a run from twenty-eighth to tenth, slowed on the front stretch with mechanical issues. On the lap 36 restart Overton once again got a great jump on the field as Ferguson took back third from Eckert. ON lap 42 the best battle on the track was the one for third between Ferguson, Eckert and fourteenth starting Zack Mitchell. By lap 48 Eckert had taken third and Mitchell fourth. On lap 48 the races fifth caution would fall for Jamie Lathroum who came to pit road for a flat right rear tire. On lap 49 Bailes got inside Overton coming out of turn 4, Overton would hold at the line. On the next circuit, things got really interesting as Overton, Bailes, Overton and Mitchell were all battling for the lead. On lap 53 Eckert would dive under Bailes going down the backstretch. On lap 54 caution would fall for a stopped Jeff Smith in turn 4. On the races final green Overton and Eckert would jump out to a two car length on the rest of the field. On lap 56 Eckert worked his way inside Overton in turn 4 and then again in turn 2. On the final lap Overton led Eckert into turn 2 and down the backstretch. As the barreled into turn 3 Eckert got inside Overton, as they raced off turn 4 they raced side by side to the line with Overton holding off Eckert by .119 seconds for the victory. Heat race winners – Ross Bailes, Michael Brown, Chris Ferguson and Daulton Wilson. In the FASTRAK Touring Series, 40 lap feature Jensen Ford and Justin Williams led the 29 car field to green. The two raced side by side back to the line with Ford take the lead by inches at the line. In turn 1 Ford would get by to put some distance between himself and Williams. Ford would pace the field until lap 19 when Ford slowed coming out of turn 2 bringing out the caution. On the restart, Williams got a good jump on the field with Logan Roberson and Trevor Feathers in tow. A big crash involving seven cars on lap 26 would bring out a red flag for clean-up. It took five times to get the race restarted on lap 25 but once it did Williams began to pull away. On lap 34 Williams’ night came to an end when he blew a right rear tire sending him to the infield. That started the beginning of flat right rear tires going flat. First Trevor Feathers just after taking over the lead on the caution on lap 35, then Kyle Lear amongst others. Layton Sullivan would lead the field to green for the final time and looked to have his first career win only to blow a right rear tire coming out of turn 4 to the checkers, which allowed Carson Ferguson to take the $3000 victory over Trevor Feathers, Layton Sullivan, Corey Almond and Ryan Adams rounding out the top five.
