MARVIN WINTERS BANKS $3,000 IN SEASON SECOND LATE MODEL WIN
Mike Walls Posts First Ever Late Model Sportsman Triumph
HAGERSTOWN, MD. – If it wasn’t hot enough outside, Marvin Winters was really working up a sweat on Christmas in July night at Hagerstown Speedway/Dirt Capitol as he battled Roy Deese Jr. for the $3,000 Late Model win. Going inside to pass a lapped car on the front stretch, Deese’s attempt around the outside ended with a hard crash into the first turn fence. Winters continued the final 11 laps to post the win over Jason Covert by 1.38 seconds.
“That lapped traffic was a little touchy and it looks like it got Roy, that’s a shame,” Winters said. “But we had a good race going on. I think he was getting a little bit loose or mine was starting to come on. It was going to be a good race. I didn’t see him. I went below the lapped car and the next time I came around and the red was out. I didn’t see it happen.”
In other racing and after 16 years, third generation driver Mike Walls fought back emotions following his career first win in the Late Model Sportsman feature. It was another day in the office for Mike Corbin who posted his ninth win in the Pure Stock event while Matt Williamson finally wrapped up his first win in the Four Cylinder feature. Defending Classic Racing Series champion Matt Wallace scored his Hagerstown second of the season with the Bill Bollinger Memorial event.
With a heads up start, Brian Bernheisel led the opening lap with Roy Deese Jr. charging past off the fourth turn to lead the second circuit. Winters, C. S. Fitzgerald, Kyle Hardy and Jason Covert each passed Bernheisel in the next several laps with Winters closing in for the battle with Deese while Fitzgerald was feeling the pressure from Hardy and Covert was another several lengths back.
Clearing Scott Richwine on the 12th lap, Wayne Johnson was next in line as Winters led the 16th lap with Deese battling back. The two were putting on a show while On the 19th lap, Winters went to the inside of Johnson entering the first turn while Deese went to the outside and contact was made sending him hard into the fence which brought out the red flag.
On the restart, Covert bolted into the runner up spot while Hardy got past Fitzgerald on the 21st lap. Winters continued to hold a several length lead and went on to take the triumph by 1.320 seconds over Covert and Hardy. Fitzgerald and Jamie Lathroum were next. B. Bernheisel, Deese and Fitzgerald were the heat winners.
“I have to thank Tex Shaffer,” Winters said. “He’s a great car owner. He lets me do whatever we need to the car; no questions asked. That’s the kind of owner you need.”
In a three car invert for the Malloy Ford Late Model Sportsman feature, it was Chaz Walls on the pole and Mike Walls (No relation) on the outside as they ran side by side the first lap with M. Walls pulling ahead off the fourth turn. Following the only yellow flag on lap six, M. Walls led while Chad Myers, two time winner and running third, pulled pit side with mechanical issues.
C. Walls, then came under attack by Robbie Black who took over the third position on the 11th lap but M. Walls was more than two seconds ahead. Black kept cutting into the lead but still trailed Walls by 1.426 seconds at the checkered. It was Walls’ first ever win and came after 16 long years. Myers, M.Walls and C.Walls won the heats.
Chaz Walls was involved in an accident east of Waynesboro on the way to the track when a car caused the incident which demolished his truck. Brother Mike Walls came to the rescue and towed Chaz ‘enclosed trailer on to the speedway.
Starting on the outside pole with a two car invert in the K Lynn Management Pure Stock feature, Mike Corbin dashed into the front and should have had a rear view mirror to watch the race for second. At the finish, Corbin had a two length lead for his ninth win as David Kaiser held off ninth starter Jasen Geesaman for the runner up spot. Corbin Geesaman and Dave Stouffer were the heat winners.
Mike Potts led the opening lap of the Four Cylinder feature from the outside pole but Matt Williamson charged from fifth to overtake him on lap two. Williamson pulled out to a comfortable lead and wasn’t challenged while Michael Warrenfeltz took over the second spot on lap fifth lap but trailed by more than four seconds at the checkered.
Sitting on the pole, Matt Wallace took the lead from the onset over Steve Cantwell in the Bollinger Memorial event. Wallace set the pace and pulled further ahead with each lap until taking the checkered by more than five seconds over Cantwell who was followed by Neal Reamer, Steve Clemo and Joe Brown .
“I won this race last year,” Wallace said. “It’s a special race to win.”
