McKinney Claims Victory in Delayed Race 

By Ken de la Bastide

(May 5, 2013) - For the second time this season Chris Jennings has established a new track record during Front Wheel Drive Oval Division action at Anderson Speedway.

A week ago Jennings became the first FWD driver to break the 14-second mark in the division with a time of 14.987-seconds. But his car failed the technical inspection following qualifying.

This past Saturday, Jennings set a new mark of 15.092-seconds in the division.

During the feature event the early lead was taken by Ron Phipps who was chased by Elliott McKinney, Jennings, Paul Phipps and Jerry Dane.

The lead pack ran in a tight group with Jennings first using an outside move to pass McKinney on lap eight on the front straight and two laps later going to the point with an inside pass of Ron Phipps entering turn three.

From there Jennings went on to win by 2.6-seconds over Ron Phipps with McKinney, Paul Phipps and Dane rounding out the top five.

It was Jennings first feature win of the year and comes after two seconds and a third place finish this year.

In the feature that was delayed by rain on April 27, McKinney passed Trevin Henson with an outside move on the back straight and went on to record his first feature win of the year.

Paul Phipps passed Henson with a power move on the outside in turn three and Jennings passed Henson on the final lap to claim third.

Dane completed only one lap when his ride suffered a transmission problem. Jerry Swinford Jr.’s night ended on lap 2 when his car caught fire on the back straight, he emerged uninjured.
