Bare Holds off Williams in Epic Battle for the Pro Late Model win at Virginia Motor Speedway; Polevoy and Shelton Also Score Wins; Limited Stock Feature Postponed Due to Rain

Jamaica, VA – In what may turn out to be the race of the year only two weeks into the 2017 season Tyler Bare of Rockbridge Baths, VA held off Justin Williams of Concord, VA for the win at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway. Bare and Williams battled 3-wide through traffic, throwing slide jobs on each other at both ends of the track for the lead. Bare finally secured the lead for the final time with a slide job on Williams in turn 2 on lap 33 of 35 to go on to the win.

Bare and Stephen Childress led the field to green with Bare take the top spot out of turn 2. On lap 6 Childress brought out a caution as he tried getting to the inside of Bare for the lead out of turn 4. That put Justin Williams on Bare’s bumper for the restart.

On under way the two began to pull away from the field as they jostled for the lead. On lap 7 Williams got under Bare out of turn 4 to take the lead by inches at the line. Williams would hold the lead until lap 15 when Bare would get inside Williams in turn 1 trapping him behind a lapped car. Bare would slide up in front of Williams and the two made contact.

Williams finally got back to Bare’s bumper on lap 21 picking him up and caring him down the frontstretch. Bare was able to keep control of his car and the lead. The two then raced through traffic at times 3-wide as they battled for the lead. On lap 33 Williams through a slide job on Bare in turn 1 only to have Bare pull a crossover move to regain the lead out of turn 2. Bare would go on to score his second win in a row with Williams following closely in second. Matt Quade, Davis Lipscombe and Corey Almond rounded out the top five.

In other action Tim Shelton of Fredericksburg, VA took the lead from Joe Weiss of Elizabeth City, NC on lap 23 of the 30 lap Truckin Thunder Sportsman feature to grab the win; in the Budweiser Modified 30 lap feature Joey Polevoy of Powhatan, VA scored his second win of the season while Mother Nature took the Collision One Limited Stock feature.

In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature it was the Joe Weiss and Tim Shelton show. Weiss led the first circuit with Shelton on his bumper. Weiss held the top spot with Shelton behind him using every bit of the track to try and find a line around the leader. The two battle three wide through traffic on several occasions with Weiss holding on to the top spot after each challenge. The two went three wide with a lapped car out of turn 4 on lap 23 allowing Shelton to get by for the lead. Once out front Shelton would pull away and take the win with Weiss, Chad Beahr, Brett Atkins and Michael Hayes rounding out the top 5.

In the Budweiser Modified 25 lap feature Tim Schulte and Jeff Solinger led the field to green with Solinger leading the first circuit. On a lap 2 restart Solinger would spin in turn 4 while leading handing the lead to Schulte. Schulte would hold the top spot until Joey Polevoy finally worked his car to the inside of Schulte for the lead out of turn 4. Once out front Polevoy would cruise to his second win of the season. Schulte, Mike Reynolds, Francis Jarrelle III and David Kendall rounding out the top five.
