Josh Weller Hits It Big In Delaware
DELMAR, Del. – Josh Weller scored his first Rislone URC Sprint Series feature win of the season during a hot night at Delaware Int’l Speedway on Saturday.
Weller earned $2,200 for the win, including a $200 bonus posted by C&B Mushrooms plus a drum of Viper Venum Racing Fuel. In the twenty-five lap feature, pole sitter Robbie Stillwaggon was the race leader for the first twenty laps. Upon completing lap 20, the top wing detached on the Stillwaggon sprinter entering turn one, forcing the yellow flag to be displayed. At that point, Weller inherited and held off a late race charge from current point leader Davie Franek.
At the start of the 25-lap Rislone Sprint Series feature, the yellow flag was displayed for J.R. Berry and Kevin Darling who tangled in turn one. On the restart, Robbie Stillwaggon gunned into the lead with Jonathan Swanson following for the first lap. By lap two, Josh Weller was second with Andy Best on the move. The yellow was displayed on lap two, this time for Jeff Fithian who spun in turn two.
On the restart, Stillwaggon remained in control followed by Josh Weller, Andy Best, Dan Mazy and Davie Franek. As the leaders now were dealing with lapped traffic, Weller started to close in on Stillwaggon and third place runner Andy Best was also closing on the leaders. A caution flag on lap seven was waiving, this time for Kramer Williamson who was slowing on the speedway.
