Wilson, Richardson Tame Kern Co.
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – Lance Wilson and Brian Richardson split the NASCAR CITGO Lubricants Late Model twin 35 lap features during Saturday’s Jim Burke Ford Night at Kern County Raceway Park.
For Wilson, the win marked his first career victory at KCRP in his first night driving a new car for Taylor-Wilson Racing.
“It’s been a long time coming, can’t thank these guys enough. That thing is a hot rod,” Wilson said. “To come out here and do what we did today, I’m pumped.”
Cole Adamo led the field to green for the second of the 35 lap main events but was overhauled by Wilson on lap four. Brian Richardson started shotgun on the field but had already made his way up to second by lap nine.
The first of the 35 lap contests was won by Brian Richardson, the points leader, taking his sixth win of 2014.
Cole Adamo led the opening lap of competition before being passed by 15 year-old rookie Racin Vernon.
The strongest field of Mini Stocks in 2014 came out to race but in the end points leader Randy Smith came out on top for his second win of the year.
Kercie Jung won her first Jr. Mini Dwarf race, leading the final 18 laps of the 25 lap feature.
Brock Thompson led 29 laps to win his second career KCRP victory in the NASCAR Spec Modifieds.
Anthony Balcazar extended his Sr. Mini Dwarf points lead, leading all 25 laps for the victory
