Jamaica, VA – Great weather for Xtra 99.1 Night at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway led to an awesome night of racing with nine different winners in ten features. In the Victory Lap Late Model division twin features both John Staton and Justin Williams dominated on way to their wins. Staton took the lead in the first feature on the opening lap and pulled away from the field surviving a late caution to take his second win of the season. In the second feature Justin Williams battled side by side with Bubba Hubbard taking the lead on lap 2. Once out front Williams dominated the remainder of the distance for his seventh win of the season.

Other winners included Walker Arthur (Aaron’s pro Late Model), mark Parks (Aaron’s Pro Late Model), Mike Reynolds (Budweiser Modified) swept both features, Brett Adkins (Truckin Thunder Sportsman), Matt Ashworth (Truckin Thunder Sportsman) picked up his career first, Shawn Otey (Collision One Limited Stock) and James Givens (Collision One Limited Stock).

In the first feature for the Victory Lap Late Models Anthony Kincaid and John Staton led the field to green with Staton rocketing to the lead out of turn 2. Staton was on cruise control until the races only caution on lap 12 set up a three lap dash for the win. On the restart once again darted out to a sizeable lead taking his second win on the season. Rounding out the top five were Joe Ender, Billy Tucker, Stephen Childress and Justin Williams.

In the second Victory Lap Late Model feature the story was pretty much the same just a different driver dominating. Billy Hubbard and Justin Williams led the field to green. The two raced side by side back to the line with Hubbard leading by inches. As they exited turn 2 on the next lap Williams rocketed off the corner to take control of the top spot. The only thing that was able to slow Williams were the five cautions. On final restart on lap nine Joe Ender tried to get under the leader in turn 1 only to have Williams pull away out of turn 2. Williams would dominate the remaining laps on way to his seventh win of the season. Rounding out the top five were Ender, Walker Arthur, John Staton and Billy Tucker.

In the Aaron’s Pro Late Models Mark Parks and Walker Arthur led the field to green for the first 15 lap feature. Arthur would grab the lead out of turn 2 with Tyler Bare following into second. Bare would challenge Arthur on lap 3 but that would be as close as he would get as Arthur turned up the wick and went on to the win followed by Bare point leader Bobby Thompson, Mark Parks and Ricky Wells rounded out the top five.

In the second feature for the Aaron’s Pro Late Models Mark Parks jumped out to the lead as they went three wide behind him for second. Tyler Bare and Walker Arthur battled side by side for second with Arthur finally grabbing the spot on lap 8. Caution came out on lap 11 closing the field on Park’s rear bumper. On the restart Arthur peaked to the inside but couldn’t make the pass. Parks would fend off several challenges over the final four laps to take home his second win of the season. Arthur, Bare, Thompson and Ricky Wells rounded out the top five.

Lance Grady and Gary Long led the Budweiser Modified division to green with Grady securing the top spot. Grady would lead until he missed his mark in turn 1 and hit the wall ending his night. That handed the lead over to Michael Reynolds for the restart. Remolds would pull away from the field as Matt Marshall and Matt Quade battled side by side for second. That battle allowed Reynolds to pull away and go on to the win. Marshall, Quade, Gary Long and Stephen Quade rounded out the top five.

What looked to be a runaway win by point leader Matt Qaude in the second 15 lap feature for the Budweiser Modifieds turned into a two race sweep for Mike Reynolds. Quade and Gary Long led the field to green with Quade taking the lead and pulled away from the field. Quade had worked to a full straight lead when caution would come out on lap 12 setting up a three lap dash for the win. On the restart Quade pulled away by a couple car lengths and looked to be on his way to yet another win. On the final lap Quade’s car had an engine failure allowing Reynolds to cruise by and to his second win of the night. Josh Harris, Matt Quade, Matt Marshall and Brian Maxey rounded out the top five.

In the first 15 lap feature for the Truckin Thunder Sportsman Davey Pullen and Brett Adkins led the field to green with Adkins taking the lead out of turn 2. Adkins would pull away from the field with Jeremiah Marshall working to chase him down in traffic. Adkins would dominate and to score his third win of the season.

It took two tries to get the second feature for the Truckin Thunder Sportsman underway with Jeremiah Marshall take control of the top spot on the first lap. By lap 4 eighth starting Brett Adkins had worked his way to second and the bumper of Marshall. A caution on lap 5 closed the whole field up on Marshall’s bumper for the restart. On the restart Marshall and Adkins pulled away. On the next circuit Marshall spun in turn 1 with a little help from Adkins sending both drivers to the rear of the field. Davey Pullen led the next lap with James Snead looking to his inside. The two raced side by side into turn 1 with Pullen spinning to bring out the caution. On the restart Snead held control of the lead. On lap 9 Snead’s car pulled up with mechanical issues handing the lead over to Matt Ashworth. Behind the leader Marshall and Adkins had worked their way through the field to second and third. Ashworth would have just enough to hold off Adkins for his career first win at Virginia Motor Speedway. Adkins, Marshall, Carl Vaughan and Macy Causey rounding out the top five.
