White Wins Martinsville

This weekend’s race was at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia and it attracted a 20 car field of bootleggers. Max Handley took the pole position with James Ray starting 2nd.

Lots of close, clean racing all through the field despite a very loose setup due, in part, to the 84 degree temperature.

Mason White, who started 5th, took the lead with 14 laps to go. He somehow held off a hard-charging Matt Hoose for the win, beating him by just 2/10ths of a second!

Hoose holds on to the point lead with Jimmy Eifling and Brian Young tied for 2nd. David Schaeffer drops to 4th and Lowell Jewell remains in 5th. Next week we travel north to Maine and pay a visit to Oxford Plains Speedway.
