April 28 Feature Winners ~ B&B Gun and Pawn
What an exciting night of racing Wythe Raceway held on Saturday night. B&B Gun & Pawn presented a night of double points and when they double the points its always double the excitement.
The night started with the That’s My Dress KCAR class. Amber Huffman, Chilhowie lead the first 5 laps with ease until a lap car was able to help Tanner Tate, Marion to take the lead. The next couple of laps was a battle between the two. At the last sight of the flag stand Tate still had the lead as no one was able to catch him. Huffman came in second followed by Jacob Harmon, Abingdon Braxton Surber, Sugar Grove and Bradly Griffey, Crockett for the top 5
What seemed to be his own race Morgan Widener, Marion took home his second win of the season. With more than half of the field not being able to complete the 20-lap Wythe Eye Modified Feature Widener had a full straightaway from the second-place finisher J.R Davis, Crockett and a half track on the 5th place car. Third place went to Duke Bare, Meadowview and fourth to Richard Shupe, Bluewell WV
Week three has come and gone and Brent Hilton has taken home the trophy every week so far. It’s safe to say that Hilton a driver from Rural Retreat is dominating the FASTRACK late models this year. With a single file race for most of the 25 laps Randy Kinder, Radford brought home second and third went to Terry Cregger, Crockett. Will Hilton win the track championship this year?
No surprise that the R&C Super Streets were the show to see on this cold night of racing. Keith Griffitts, Sugar Grove took the lead to keep. Jerry Dillow, Bluefield WV, Dale Hancock Jr, Atkins and Michael Deskins Tazewell, was the drivers to watch as they battled for second. Dillow, with a restart to help get away from Deskins and Hancock gave Griffitts a run for his money for the win, but with only 5 laps and a slick track he was unable to pass Griffitts. Deskins took the checkered flag in the 3rd position followed by Hancock and Randy Taylor, Chilhowie for the top 5.
The pro mini class saw a new face in victory lane. Chuck Kinzer from Woodlawn had a smile on his face after another long night of hard racing. Everyone gave it all they had in the shortened 15 lap race. Travis Harden, Marion came in a very close second. Kevin Atwell, Rural Retreat who lost the lead on lap 4 and fell to the back made his way through the field to finish third.
The people who did bare the cold for the last race of the night were not disappointed. The UCAR class sure put on a show. Side by side racing all the way through the pack led to a lap 4 pile up in turn 2 of the ½ mile. When one of the leaders got turned everyone behind didn’t have many options on where to go. Eleven cars obtained to much damaged to continue the feature. On lap 8 Travis Quesenberry, Rural Retreat Daniel Tate, Marion and James Graybeal, Rural Retreat even made it 3 wide in turns 3 & 4. The next time around Quesenberry and Tate got together on the front stretch for another caution. The race was shortened to 11 laps, and for the green, white, checkered Graybeal was able to take home his first win of the season. Cole Dutton, Chilhowie took second in followed by Ricky Ward, Marion Will Hostetler, Rural Retreat and Trever Armstrong, Atkins for the top 5. A total of twenty-five cars took the first green flag but only 11 got to see the checkered.
