2013) - Jeff Marcum survived a
fierce three car battle to capture his
second feature win in the last four weeks in
the McGunegill Engine Performance Late Model
feature on Saturday, September 28 at
Danny Trent took the point thanks to an
eight car inversion and held the lead until
his mount failed on lap seven. Marcum who
started fourth, took control at this point.
The first of two yellows flew on lap 10. The
first for Rob Noel's spin and the second two
laps later for Ronnie Phipps' spin while he
was running second.
Wes Russell, Jr. moved into second with
Chris Hacker going into 3rd. Those three ran
a tight nose to tail formation until things
heated up with two laps to go. Marcum had a
tire starting to go down. As they came out
of turn four for the white flag, Russell
moved to the outside of Marcum while Hacker
was trying the inside. Needless to say,
three abreast did not work. A lot of paint
was exchanged and Hacker went sailing out
through the infield. Somehow Marcum held on
for the win followed by Russell, Rob Allman,
Ronnie Rose and Fred Hopkins.
Allman and Woodring were heat winners and
Russell was fast qualifier.
It seemed as though that three wide was the
practice for the night as the street stocks
kept the fans on their feet right to the end
of their 25 lap feature with point leader
Calvin Parham winning his second feature
this season in a wild finish.
Parham started in first position courtesy of
a six car inversion. He led from the get go
with Jacob Owens in pursuit in his first
appearance of the season. Owens was passed
mid way in the race by Josh Poore and Tyler
Marsh but by then Parham had a large lead.
Parham's mount also began to have a tire go
down late in the race with Poore and Marsh
closing quickly. For the second straight
feature of the night it was three abreast on
the white flag for the lead. Parham was able
to shake off the competition to win by .202
seconds over Poore, Marsh, Owens and Ricky
Parham and T.J. Flynn were heat winners with
Poore the fast timer.
The IOFS Super Karts provided some wild
action in their 20 lap affair with Angie
Goodin holding off all the guys to win her
first feature by a thread.
The draft was in full operation as Angie
Goodin led from the green flag. Jason and
David Reynolds and Cody Rinehart were
swapping positions frequently behind Goodin.
The red flag flew on lap 18 for the rolled
cart of Michael Goodin who was ok. Upon the
return to green, an all out assault came on
the leader with Angie Goodin winning her
first race by .159 seconds over Jason
Reynolds, David Reynolds, Cody Rinehart and
Dustin Kanes in our third straight three
abreast finish! At the end Ben Smith rolled
his cart end over end but was ok.
Jason Reynolds and Cody Rinehart were prelim
winners with Robert Eversole the fast
Point Leader Kevin Henson unexpectedly
captured his sixth feature win of the season
in the Front Wheel Drive Figure 8 in an
attrition filled event.
The yellow flag flew on lap seevn when Blake
Zirkle's mount threw a wheel. At the same
time, Mark Allman's engine exploded igniting
the engine compartment into flames.
Following the return to green, Elliott
McKinney looked like a shoe-in until his
ignition failed on the white flag lap
sending Henson to the Tim Thompson
Nationwide Insurance Winners Circle.
Trailing Henson were Brian McKinney, Elliott
McKinney, Mark Allman and Jamie Valentine.
Elliott McKinney was a heat winner with Owen
