First Late Model Win For Hubbard In 10 Years
JAMAICA, Va. – It had been 10 years since Billy Hubbard tasted victory in the Victory Lap Late Model division at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway, but the wait ended on Saturday.
Hubbard, who took several years off from racing, took the lead from Buck Roadcap on lap eight and then held off a furious charge by Justin Williams to get the win in the Victory Lap Late Model 30-lap feature on Collision One STAR Kids Night presented by MetroCast.
Anthony Kincaid and Buck Roadcap led the field to green with Roadcap taking over the top spot. Hubbard would then begin to work on Roadcap for the lead.
On a late restart, Hubbard had Justin Williams working the high side trying to get by for the lead.
On the final lap Hubbard came up on slower traffic in turn three, allowing Williams to close in to challenge for the victory but Hubbard was able to hold on for the win.
Justin Williams, Tim Shelton, Stephen Childress and Anthony Kincaid rounded out the top 5.
