Wilson outruns field for Tuesday night win

Crossville, TN (June 5th) – Crossville Raceway held the first “Tennessee RV Tuesday Night Trio” of the year. Three classes were in action, and the good crowd on hand saw some great racing.

In Late Model qualifying, it was #10 Chris Wilson setting fast time with a lap of 13.65. The second quick qualifier was #29 Jason Welshan with a lap of 13.83. Heat race #1 was won by #122 Mike Weeks, second was #J1 Johnny Phillips, and #30 Ryan King rounded out the top three. The second heat race was won by #77 Perry Delaney, #8 Trent Mullinax, and #51 Mack McCarter rounded out the top three.

The 35-lap Late Model feature started with Wilson winning the drag race into turn one. Welshan was close by, Weeks was third, #24 Greg Martin fourth, and Delaney was rounding out the top five. Lap seven saw Delaney pressure Martin for fourth. Lap twenty saw Weeks get by Welshan for second. On lap twenty-two Welshan took his ill handling car to the pits. This moved #71 Pierce McCarter into the fifth spot. Wilson cruised to the popular win, as he pocketed the $1200 first prize plus a $400 bonus from Ujunkdit.com. Second was Weeks, third was Martin, Delaney was fourth, and Pierce McCarter rounded out the top five.

The Open Wheel Modifieds were on the schedule for the first time in a few years. The heat races were very competitive, and heat race #1 was won by #15 Jeff Hamby, second went to #36 Billy Palmer, and #29 Joey Cotterman rounded out the top three. Heat race #2 was won by #10 Mack McCarter, second was #47 Brad Hall, and #1 Joey Whittenburg rounded out the top three.

The Open Wheel Feature was $700 to win thanks to a few generous sponsors. The 25-lap feature saw Hamby power into the lead. McCarter was running in second and Palmer was in third. On lap three Joey Cotterman got by Palmer for third, and on the same lap Michael Asberry moved into fifth. Asberry got by Palmer for fourth on lap six. Lap nine saw Hall move into fifth past Palmer. On lap fifteen Cotterman got into McCarter which resulted in McCarter spinning out. The caution was charged to Cotterman. This moved Asberry up to third, Hall in fourth, and Palmer fifth. Meanwhile up front Hamby built a sizeable lead, and he kept that lead until the end, as he took home the trophy. McCarter finished second, Asberry third, Hall fourth, and Palmer rounded out the top five.

In the Front Runner class, heat race #1 was won by #A93 Nathan Adams, second place went to #7 Brian Larson, and #93 Joseph Osborne. The second heat race was won by #16R Robert Stone, coming in second was #T91 Nick Adams, and #J27 JD Rector rounded out the top three.
