grabs first win
TN (September 15th) – After raining out the two
previous weeks, Crossville Raceway roared back to
life with some great racing action.
In Late Model qualifying, it was #90 Mark Martin
setting fast time. However Martin’s tires were determined
to be too soft and thus his time was disqualified.
This meant that #77 Perry Delaney was the fast qualifier
with a lap of 12.94. Delaney’s time is the fastest
qualifying lap recorded this year, and it is the
6th time he has been the fastest qualifier this
year. Delaney rolled a three, meaning the top three
cars will be inverted in the 6-car Fast Car Dash.
The Fast Car Dash saw #4X Joe Cline take the win,
with #17 Brett Wyatt finishing in second and #76
Fred Flatt rounding out the top three. In the heat
race, it was Martin coming out victorious. #112
Dustin Diden finished in second and #5C Troy Davenport
rounded out the top three.
The 30-lap Late Model feature saw Wyatt jump into
the lead followed by Cline in second and Delaney
in third. On lap two, Diden took over sixth from
#5M Scott Shelton. Shelton would return the favor
and slip past Diden a couple of laps later. Lap
eight saw Martin get by Diden for seventh. On lap
nineteen Martin would move into sixth as he got
past Shelton. Martin would continue his move forward
as he got by #8 Trent Mullinax for fifth on lap
twenty-one. Delaney would go around Cline for second
on lap twenty-nine. At the end Wyatt had a comfortable
lead and he took his first win of the year. Delaney
was second, Cline was third, Flatt fourth, and Martin
rounded out the top five. Rounding out the top ten
was Mullinax, Shelton, Diden, Davenport, and #17J
In A-Hobby’s, it was #20 Mike Selby sweeping the
nights events as he picked up both the heat race
and the feature race. The win is Selby’s 7th win
of the year at the track. #2 Mike Selby finished
second and #5 John Dicken was third.
The Street Stock class saw #28 Brian Vaughn and
#12 Derek Diden win the heat races. In the feature
Vaughn fought off all challengers for his second
win of the year. #83 Jeff Savage finished in second,
#77 Ray Jarnigan was third, Diden finished fourth,
and #18 Greg Abston rounded out the top five.
In the Front Runner class #46 Cody Rector took the
heat race win. Rector jumped into the lead at the
start of the 20-lap feature, with #93 Nathan Adams
in second and #57 Stephen Conley in third. On lap
two #7 Brian Larson moved around Conley for third.
On lap three #3 Matthew Sullivan passed his way
into fifth. On lap four Larson got by Adams for
second. On lap ten a caution came out for Larson,
putting him to the rear of the field. This put Adams
back to second. Lap twelve saw Larson move back
into third. Up front Rector took his fourth win
of the year. Adams finished second, Larson was third,
Conley was fourth, and #25JR George Willis rounded
out the top five.
The Jr. Hornets saw #01 Kane Pelfrey win another
heat race. Pelfrey took the lead at the start of
the ten lap feature. #5K Kealey Lowe was running
in second and #17 Carlie Mullinax was third. Lowe
began challenging Pelfrey and on lap five her intensity
paid off as she took over the lead from Pelfrey.
Lap six saw Pelfrey bring out a caution with a flat
tire. Pelfrey would get the tire changed and restart
on the back of the field. On lap seven Pelfrey got
by Mullinax for second, but couldn’t get close enough
to Lowe to challenge for the lead. Mullinax finished
third, #25JR Colten Akins was fourth, and #K46 Kenzie
Kirkland rounded out the top five.
The Dwarf cars were once again at Crossville Raceway.
#07 Joseph Underwood took home the heat race win.
Underwood took the lead at the start of the feature,
and extended his lead throughout the race as he
picked up the win. #15 Michael Wood finished second,
#1 Tim Cobble was third, #7 Shawn Thomas was fourth,
#22 Jonathan Allen was fifth, and #0 Jamie James
was sixth, and #28 Paul Garrett was seventh.
In the Legends class #32 Robert Fitzgerald made
a last lap pass to take home the win in the feature.
Second was #95 Tommy Fitzgerald, third was #61 Lisa
Fitzgerald, and fourth was #4 Vince Hamright. Tommy
Fitzgerald won the heat race.
