Special Twin Night Produces Seven Different Winners

Jamaica, VA – After four rain outs in a row Mother Nature tried to dampen the night’s activities at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway with a brief shower during qualifying. After a 60 minute delay officials worked the track back into racing condition and continued activities for Chandler Chevrolet night. The action on the track turned out to be as hot as the temperatures outside.

In the first 20 lap twin for the Victory Lap Late Models saw Troy Williams and John Staton leading the field to green with Williams leading the first circuit. On the next lap Williams would slip in turn 2 allowing Tim Shelton to take over the top spot. For the next seventeen laps it looked as if Shelton would cruise to the win but a caution on lap 18 closed the field on his bumper for a green, white checker finish. On the restart Shelton had Troy Williams glued to his bumper. Williams would get inside Shelton coming to the checkers with Shelton nipping him at the line by inches for the win. Rounding out the top five were Scott Adams, Billy Tucker and John Staton.

“We got a little loose at the end and (Troy) Williams almost got us at the line. It feels great to be back in victory lane,” commented Shelton in victory lane.

In the second 20 lap feature for the Victory Lap Late Models Billy Tucker and Scott Adams led the field to green with Adams taking control out of turn 2. Adams would dominate with the battle behind him for second between Billy Tucker, Tim Shelton, Troy Williams and John Staton. Adams would lead flag to flag to pick up the victory.

“We made some changes to the car during the break that really made the car come around for us, I can’t thank my crew enough for the job they didi,” commented Adams in victory lane.

Rounding out the top five were Billy Tucker, John Staton, Troy Williams and Tim Shelton.

Other winners included Taylor Dogget taking both Truckin Thunder Sportsman features. Brandon Galloway and Mike Reynolds got wins in Budweiser Modified action; Stephen Childress and Brian Maxey in Collision One Limited Stock Car action.

Budweiser Modifieds
In the first 15 lap feature for the Budweiser Modifieds Brandon Galloway and Joey Polevoy led the field to green with Galloway leading the first circuit. Galloway was on a roll and pulled away from the battle for second between Polevoy and Mike Reynolds. The races only caution came on lap 7 and tightened the field on Galloway’s bumper for the restart. On the restart Galloway once again pulled away from Polevoy and the rest of the field. The fastest car in the track may have been Dan Arnold who worked his way from twentieth to sixth with 5 laps to go. No one would catch Galloway as he went onto score the win. Joey Polevoy, Mike Reynolds, Jimmy Duncan and Brian Dobie rounding out the top five.

In the second 15 lap feature Dan Arnold and Brian Dobie led the field to green after inverting the top 6 prior to the green flag.

On the restart the battle for the top spot would heat up between Arnold and Duncan. On lap 4 Duncan got inside Arnold coming out of turn 4 with Arnold holding onto the lead by inches. Duncan looked to have momentum until caution came out again for a wreck in turn 4. On the lap 5 restart Duncan looked inside of Arnold for the lead but would spin in turn 2 collecting six cars in the process. Over the next ten laps Arnold and Brian Dobie put on a show for the fans with Arnold holding off Dobie until the white flag lap when Dobie got under Arnold heading into turn 1 taking the spot.

    I just wanted to say “Thank You” to Mr. Sawyer, Dave Seay and the Security people that helped in getting me into see the race since I am in a wheelchair. I’d like to especially thank Mr. Sawyer for allowing us to use the elevator to get me to the top row of the bleachers. I love coming to the track and enjoy the races there. That was my first real thing to do since being in a wheelchair when I go anywhere. Everyone that helped us last night (Saturday, Aug. 4) was so nice and helpful.

    Thank You again,

    Tina McCauley
