Tucker and Adams Score Late Model Victories; Duncan, Adkins, Padula and Givens Sweep Twins

vmsdefault-300x141Jamaica, VA – Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway hosted its second night of twin features on a very chilly night. The temperatures may have been unseasonably cold but the racing was blistering hot. Features winners were Billy Tucker of King George, VA and Scott Adams of Chester, VA in the Victory Lap Late Model twins; Brett Adkins of Gloucester, VA swept both Trucking Thunder Sportsman features; Jimmy Duncan of Fredericksburg, VA won both Budweiser Modified features; Dave Padula of Greencastle, PA won both Fastrak Pro Late Model features and Wesley Givens of Mechanicsville, VA swept the action in Collision One Limited Stock Cars.

John Staton of Chesapeake, VA led 14 laps of the first 20 lap feature for the Victory Lap Late Models, that is until he made contact with a slower car in turn 2 sending him spinning and to the infield. That handed the lead over to Billy Tucker who had battled Staton for the lead for the first 14 laps. Once out front Tucker made the most of it taking home his first win of 2013.

In the second 20 lap feature for the late models Tucker had to start eighth due to the invert. Leading the field to green were Brandon Long and Scott Adams with long leading the first circuit. Adams took over the lead on lap 2 with Tucker working his way back to the front. By lap 4 Tucker was on the leader’s bumper and looking for the lead. Adams and Tucker raced side by side for much of the remaining laps but it was Adams who would take home the win.

In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman Brett Adkins took out the broom to win both features but each was different than the other.oen in a different fashion. In the first 15 lap feature Adkins started sixth and worked his way to the front and on lap 4 made an outside move on Junior Carter in turn 2 and then an inside move on Timmy Brann in turn 3 to take the lead. Once out front Adkins cruised to the win.

The second Sportsman feature was a different story. 12 year old Macy Causey of Gloucester, VA led the first four laps before both Junior Carter and Adkins got by for the lead. Carter and Adkins exchanged the lead multiple times with slide jobs in every corner right down to the last lap when Carter got loose in turn four allowing Adkins to go on for his second win of the night.

It only took Jimmy Duncan 8 laps to get to the lead of the first Budweiser Modified feature. Once out front Duncan set a blistering pace. Matt Quade tried several times to get inside Duncan and on the last corner got to the inside of Duncan to challenge for the win with Duncan holding to take the victory.

In the second Budweiser Modified 15 lap feature started out three wide into turn three with Duncan, Neal Hudgins and Quade all vying for the top spot. Duncan would lead flag to flag but had to hold off Hudgins and Mike Reynolds on several occasions for the sweep of the night’s features.

The best racing of the night may have been in the Collision One Limited Stock Twin 12 lap features. In the first feature the race was a six car fight for the win. Brandon Sandridge, Brian Maxey, Wesley Givens, Davis Lipscombe. Shawn Otey and Bobby Curtis all took shots at the lead. On lap 9 Givens finally got under Sandrige for the lead then had to hold the field off for the win.

In the second 15 lap feature for the Collision One Limited Stock Cars Otey paced the field for the first 7 laps before he slipped up in turn 4 allowing Givens to take the lead at the line followed by Sandridge. Over the next five laps Givens fended off challenges by Sandridge to pick up the sweep.
