Jun 11, 2006 - updated Jun 11th, 2006 7:38am
Web posted by Dave Seay

Saluda, VA --

Heading into Round 2 of the Victory Lap Late Model $25,000 Challenge presented by BB&T at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway, Jared Powell of Charlottesville, VA had dreams of keeping alive his chances at a $25,000 bonus in the four race challenge series. That dream came up a little short as Tom Ericksen of Heston, PA muscled his car past both Powell and leader Larry Grimstead in one corner to take the lead on lap 27 of the 40 lap feature and then piloting the Galloway Brothers #36G Sports Collectibles of VA, Barnetts Machine Pontiac Viper to a comfortable 2.926 second margin of victory. With the win Ericksen joins Powell as the only two drivers at a shot at the $15,000 bonus for winning three of the four series events.



“I gotta thank Tim Galloway for such a great car, and Willie made some changes to the car right before the feature that brought the car alive, I wasn’t real good in the beginning but it was awesome as the race went on. This is win number 234 for me but only the first time I have driven this year,” commented Ericksen in victory lane.



Ericksen started ninth and methodically worked his way to the front. Finally getting shot at the lead on lap 26, before making a tremendous move out of turn four to go from third to first in one corner.



Rounding out the top five were Larry Grimstead, Jared Powell, fourteenth starting Donnie Marshall and seventeenth starting Stevie Long.



In other action Bret Hamilton of Powhatan, VA, starting sixth, took the lead on lap 8 of the 25 lap Budweiser Modified feature and never looked back to take home the victory. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman Walker Arthur of Forest, VA kept on his hot streak by staring eighth and taking the lead on lap 6 for his fifth win in a row. Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA dominated the 25 lap Al’s Auto parts Charger feature picking up his fourth win of the season and in the Dixie Chopper All American 15 lap feature it was Vernon Kirby of Glen Allen, VA holding off Marty Coltrain of Chesterfield, VA by two feet for the win.



Lipscombe Furniture and Appliances Night started out with Brian Staton of Chesapeake, VA blistering the track record with a lap of 19.233 seconds, besting the old record of 19.510 seconds and then inverting the top four drivers with the pill draw.



On the drop of the green flag Tom Cohick and Roland Mann in a drag race to turn 1, Mann won the battle into turn 1 but would give it back to Cohick before returning to the start finish line.



Caution would fall early for Steve Long and Eddie Groome in turn 1. On the restart Cohick began to pull away as they battled for second behind him. Jared Powell began working his way to the front and engaged in a fierce battle with Brian Staton for fourth. The two traded the position back in forth for several laps before Powell gained control and went after Mann for third. Once past Mann on lap 14 Powell went after Jamie Lathroum and took second on lap 15 with Larry Grimstead following him to third and then taking second from Powell out of turn 4.



Cohick continued to control round two until his car came up lame with motor problems ending his chance at the win. That handed the lead to Grimstead with Powell, Lathroum, Tom Ericksen and Donnie Marshall in tow. A caution on lap 26 closed the field on Cohick’s bumper. On the restart Ericksen went inside Powell in a battle for second as the two gained on Cohick. As the trio exited turn 4 it was Ericksen with the lead.



Once in the lead Ericksen began to pull away as Grimstead and Powell battled for second. Over the next ten laps Grimstead and Powell ran virtually side by side until a bobble by Powell allowed Grimstead to take second for good. With only three laps remaining Grimstead could not catch the leader as Erickson motored to the win.



Rounding out the top five were Larry Grimstead, Jared Powell, fourteenth starting Donnie Marshall and seventeenth starting Stevie Long. Neil McClanan picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Championship Rookie of the Race Award with his eighth place finish.



Bret Hamilton of Powhatan, VA started sixth and worked the high side to take the lead on lap 8 of the 25 lap Budweiser Modified feature and never looked back to take home the victory. The 25 lap race featured a monstrous battle for second. Rounding out the top five were Brent Bordeaux, Page Harrison, Brian Dobie and James Snead. Francis Jarrelle III picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Championship Rookie of the Race Award with his ninth place finish.



In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature Walker Arthur of Forest, VA continues to dominate starting eight, taking the lead on lap 6 and then holding off a furious charge by Donnie Owens in a green, white, checkered finish. It was the sixth win out of seven races and the fifth in a row for Arthur. Rounding out the top five were Donnie Owens, Davis Lipscombe, Daren Bolac and Larry Bradsher. Steve Owens picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Championship Rookie of the Race Award with his seventh place finish.



In the Al’s Auto Parts Charger 25 lap feature Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA set a new track record in hot lap qualifying and inverted the top four drivers for the start. It took 12 laps for Lipscombe to get tot eh front with a final pass on Bob Terry and then cruised to his fourth win of the season. Rounding out the top five were Bob Terry, brain maxey, Ernie Dettbarn and John Kirby. Dettbarn picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Championship Rookie of the Race Award with his fourth place finish.



The Dixie Chopper All American 15 lap feature had all the excitement one person could handle. At the start it was Raymond Harper of Gloucester, VA leading the first five laps before giving way to Vernon Kirby of Glen Allen, VA. Then over the final ten laps it was a chess match between Kirby and Marty Coltrain as to who would bring home the win. In the end it was Kirby by two feet at the finish to pick up his second win of the year. Rounding out the top five were Marty Coltrain, Raymond Harper, Thomas Rose and Stephen Childress.
