Williams Sets Sail At VMS
JAMAICA, Va. – What looked to be a race long battle in the late model feature between Billy Hubbard and Justin Williams turned into a runaway win by Williams when Hubbard broke on lap 17 while leading. Williams would cruise to his eighth win of the season at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway.
In other action Jared Powell (Aaron’s Pro Late Model), Joey Polevoy (Budweiser Modified), Brett Adkins (Truckin Thunder Sportsman) and Hutchens (Collision One Limited Stock Car) all picked up wins.
Anthony Kincaid and Billy Hubbard led the Victory Lap Late Model field to green for their 30 lap feature with Hubbard rocketing to the lead followed by Justin Williams who started sixth. Tucker and Williams were both on a rail with Williams looking to the outside for the lead. On lap 12 Hubbard bobbled in turn two but Williams had to check up so he wouldn’t run Hubbard over.
For the next five laps the two battled for the top spot until Hubbard broke in turn two handing the lead to Williams. Williams would go unchallenged the rest of the way to take his eighth win of the season. Billy Tucker, John Staton, Buck Roadcap and Stephen Childress followed to the checkers.
Jared Powell led all but the final two laps of the Aaron’s Pro Late Model feature and looked to have finished second to Daniel Baggerly. That was until Baggerly’s car came up two pounds light at the scales handing the win to Powell. It was Powell’s first win of the season. It took a couple of starts to get the Pro Late Model feature under green but once it did Powell took control of the top spot. For the next 14 laps Thompson tried every possible way around to Powell for the lead.
On lap 15 Daniel Baggerly took over second and reeled in the leader. Baggerly went to work on Powell, working both high and low. As the two came out of four to the white flag Baggerly took over the top spot and held on to what looked like the win. At the scales Baggerly’s car came up light awarding the win to Powell. Mark Parks, Bobby Thompson, Tyler Bare and Jimmy Duncan rounded out the top five.
