Twin Feature Night Produces Nine winners in Ten Races

vmsdefault-300x141Jamaica, VA – It was a tale of two stories in the Victory Lap Late Model twin features at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway with one driver getting his first win in ten years and the other continuing his domination of the division. In the first feature John Staton of Chesapeake, VA returned to victory lane after a ten year absence, holding off Justin Williams of Shipman, VA for the win. In the second 15 lap feature Justin Williams dominated the event for his fifth win of the season.

In other action Matt Quade of Mechanicsville, MD took out the broom and swept both Budweiser Modified features. In the Aaron’s Pro Late Model division Daniel Baggerly of Rural Retreat, VA scored his second win of the season and Joe Ender of Glen Allen, VA picked up his first win in the division. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman division James Snead of Fredericksburg, VA picked up his career first victory and Hunter Shelton of Fredericksburg, VA scored his fourth win of the season. And in the Collision One Limited Stock Car division James Givens of Highland Springs, VA went flag to flag to get the win and Shawn Otey of Aylett, VA took over the lead on lap 3 on way to his first win of the season.

In the first 15 lap feature for the Victory Lap Late Models John Staton and David Steel led the field to green with Staton taking the lead out of turn 2. On the next circuit Walker Arthur began his assault for the lead. On lap 8 Arthur used a slide job out of turn 4 to take over the top spot. Once out front Arthur began to pull away until a caution on lap 12 when Arthur ran over some debris sending him to the infield with a flat right rear tire handing the lead back to Staton. On the restart Justin Williams powered his way to second and looked inside and outside for a way around Staton. On the final lap Williams tried one last time out of turn 4 but Staton held on to take the win. Williams, Billy Hubbard, Stephen Childress and Buck Roadcap rounded out the top five.

In the second 15 lap feature for the Victory Lap Late Models Justin Williams made sure it didn’t come down to the last lap as he took over the top spot from Petie Coffey on lap 2 then dominated the remaining laps to score his fifth win of the season. John Staton, Buck Roadcap, Stephen Childress and Anthony Kincaid rounded out the top five.

Daniel Baggerly earned the victory in the first fifteen lap feature for the Aaron’s Pro Late Models as he worked his way from his seventh place starting position to take over the lead on lap 11 and go on to take the win. On the start Tyler Bare took the lead and looked as if he would run away with the win as the rest of the field tussled over the second spot. Baggerly finally muscled his way to second on lap 7 and began to reel in the leader. On lap 10 bare slide up turn 4 just enough to let Baggerly get by for the lead. Once out front Baggerly went unchallenged as he picked up his second win of the season. Walker Arthur, Neal Hudgins, Brad Rigdon and Bobby Thompson rounded out the top five.

It took a couple of tries to get the second 15 lap feature for the Aaron’s Pro Late Models under way. Once under green Joe Ender grabbed the lead and looked like he would go unchallenged for the win. A caution with two to go changed that scenario as the field was bunched back on Enders bumper. On the restart Walker Arthur began working on Ender for the lead getting to his outside on the exit of turn 2. At the white flag Ender had both Arthur and Daniel Baggerly within striking distance. As the three exited turn 4 Ender would hold on to take his first win in the division. Arthur, Baggerly, Neal Hudgins and Davis Lipscombe rounded out the top five.

James Snead and Davey Pullen led the Truckin Thunder Sportsman to the green in the first 15 lap feature with Snead grabbing the lead out of turn 2. Once out front Snead pulled away from the rest of the field and went flag to flag to score his career first win at Virginia Motor Speedway.

In the second 15 lap feature for the Truckin Thunder Sportsman Hunter Shelton grabbed the lead on lap 4 and never looked back dominating the rest of the feature to pick up his fourth win of the season with Junior Carter, Davey Pullen, Brett Adkins and Jeremiah Marshall rounding out the top five.

It took seven laps for Matt Quade to take over the lead and once out front Quade set sail to take his sixth win of the season. Joey Polevoy and Brandon Galloway led the field to green with Polevoy grabbing the lead. Quade would work his way to second by the second circuit and started to apply pressure on Polevoy for the lead. Quade tried several times to get inside Polevoy and on lap 6 finally pulled to his inside taking the lead at the line. Once out front Quade pulled away for the win with Polevoy, Brian Maxey, Josh Harris and Matt Marshall rounding out the top five.

In the second 15 lap feature for the Budweiser Modifieds it was much of the same as Matt Quade took over the lead from Josh Harris with a pass out of turn 4 to take the lead on lap 6. Once out front Quade pulled away to score his seventh win of the season and for the second time this season he swept both features in one night. Taylor Doggett worked his way up from his fourteenth place starting position to grab second on the last lap with Davey Pullen, Brett Adkins and Hunter Shelton rounded out the top five.

In the first 12 lap feature for the Collision One Limited Stock Cars James Givens took the lead on the drop of the green flag and never looked back as he went flag to flag to pick up the win. Shawn Otey, Brandon Sandridge, Brian Bradley and Ben Lowery rounded out the top five.

In the second 12 lap feature Shawn Otey took the lead on lap 3 when Andrew Tarbox slowed with mechanical issues. Once out front only a caution on lap 8 could slow Otey. On the final restart Otey pulled away from the field as Brandon Sandridge and James Givens battled for second. Otey would go on to take the win with Sandridge, Givens, Brian Bradley and Ryan Hutchens rounding out the top five.
