Neil Mclanan Comes From Fourteenth To Get First Late Model Win At Virginia Motor Speedway
Jul 30, 2006 - updated Jul 30th, 2006 10:24am
Web posted by Dave Seay

Saluda, VA --

If you’re going to get your first win… do it in style. That’s exactly what rookie Neil McClanan of Moyock, NC did as he drove his #80 First Team Superstore, Coastal Lighting Pontiac Grand Prix Rocket from his fourteenth place starting position to his first Victory Lap Late Model division win at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway.

Eddie Groome and Donnie Marshall Jr. led the field to green with Groome winning the drag race to turn 1 and lead lap 1. Groome and Marshall battled for the lead with Groome holding on each occasion.

On lap 14 Sommey Lacey dove under Marshall out of turn 2 with the two racing side by side back to the line and Lacey taking second. It didn’t last long as Marshall retook second out of turn 2. On lap 17 Stevie Long took third from Lacey. Caution would fly for a spin by Tyler Bailey. On the restart, fifteenth starting Jamie Lathroum took fifth from Lacey.

On lap 25 the race for second got heated with Marshall sliding up the track allowing Long and Lathroum to drive under him. The three raced into turn 4 three wide with Marshall spinning and bringing out the caution. On the restart Lathorum dove under Long heading into turn 1 with the two making contact and Lathroum spinning in turn 2.

On the restart Neil McClanan took second as Long began to back up quickly with an ill handling car. With three to go McClanan looked inside Groome in turn 1 but couldn’t make the pass. Entering turn 4 McClanan got a great run off the bottom and took the lead at the line. Groome battled back to the outside in turn 2 but couldn’t take back the lead. McClanan would take the victory by 1.092 seconds over Groome.

“This is great, we’ve had a lot of bad luck this year so this feels awesome, we love coming here to race,” commented a very happy McClanan in victory lane.

Rounding out the top five were Eddie Groome, Walker Arthur, Sommey Lacey and Larry Grimstead, Jr. Arthur picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his third place finish.

In other action Bret Hamilton of Powhatan, VA took the lead on lap 2 and never looked back to take his sixth win of the season. Donnie Owens of North, VA took the lead on lap 1 of the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature and led flag to flag but had to hold off both Walker Arthur and Roger Jamerson to get the win. In the Dixie Chopper All American 15 lap feature Dustin Owens of North, VA held off point leader Marty Coltrain of Richmond, VA for his fifth win of the season. In the Al’s Auto Parts Charger 25 lap feature James Givens of New Kent, VA led flag to flag in a hotly contested race to pick up his first win of the season.

In the Budweiser Modified 25 lap feature Brian Dobie of Partlow, VA set fast time and inverted the top eight with the pill draw. That put Craig Ramich and James Snead on the front row and leading the field to green. Snead took advantage out of turn 2 to only to give up the lead to Bret Hamilton the following lap.

Once in front Hamilton began to pull away from the field sporting a ten car length advantage at the halfway point. With Hamilton leading the man on the move was Dobie, working his way from his eighth place starting position.

A caution on lap 5 closed the field with Snead, Brent Bordeaux, Dobie and Ramich behind Hamilton. On the restart Dobie dove under Bordeaux for third and went to work on Snead for second. It took twelve laps for Dobie to get by Snead having to do it with a pass on the outside in turn 1. Dobie would get a break with a caution on lap 22 when Tim Hamlet came to rest against the turn 4 wall and closing him up on the bumper of Hamilton.

On the restart Dobie tried to get inside Hamilton to no avail as Hamilton held on to the top spot. With Hamilton in control the battle was for fourth between Eric Erwin, Page Harrison and Ramich with Erwin winning the battle. Hamilton held on for his sixth win of the year. Rounding out the top five were Brian Dobie, James Snead, Eric Erwin and Page Harrison. Craig Ramich picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his sixth place finish.

In the Dixie Chopper All American 15 lap feature Dustin Owens and Marty Coltrain led the twenty seven car field to the green with Owens grabbing the lead followed closely by Coltrain and Adam Hale. The three pulled away from the field, battling nose to tail for most of the fifteen lap affair.

With two to go and the top three nose to tail, Hale went inside Coltrain out of turn 2 to take second but then spun in turn 4 to bring out the caution. On the restart Coltrain tried several times to get past Owens but Owens held him off for his fifth win of the season. Rounding out the top five were Marty Coltrain, Byard Harris, Lee Overstreet and Brian Maines.

With his son already visiting victory lane, Donnie Owens had a bit of pressure on him heading into the 30 lap Truckin Thunder Sportsman feature. On the drop of the green flag Owens shot to the outside of William King and Mark Smith to take the lead out of turn 2 form his third place staring position.

With Owens leading, all eyes turned to see how fast Walker Arthur and Roger Jamerson could get to the front. By lap 4 Arthur was in second with Jamerson close behind. The trio raced nose to tail each looking for an opening.

On lap 25 Arthur looked inside Owens for the lead but couldn’t make the pass. He tried once again on lap 28 this time having to defend his position with Jamerson looking outside. At the white flag you could throw a blanket over the top three. Owens had just enough to hold off Arthur and jamerson for the win, his first of the season. Rounding out the top five were Walker Arthur, Roger Jamerson, Daren Bolac and Doug Johnson. Michael Green picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his sixth place finish.

Rookie Ernie Dettbarn of Richmond, VA and James Givens of New Kent, VA led the Al’s Auto Parts Chargers to the green flag with Givens taking the lead out of turn 2 followed closely by Brian Maxey, Dettbarn, Bob Terry and Davis Lipscombe.

On lap 3 Terry took third in a battle with Dettbarn and Lipscombe. With Givens on the fly and in another zip code the battle for second on back was hot and heavy. On lap 17 Dettbarn and Lipscombe swapped the fourth spot back and fourth with Dettbarn in control. Caution on lap 20 brought Givens back to the field and on the restart Terry looked inside Givens but couldn’t make the pass as Lipscombe went outside to no avail. As they raced into turn one Terry slid up into Lipscombe sending both spinning and to the rear of the field.

On the restart Dettbarn went outside Givens into turn 1 but Givens cut off his path allowing Maxey to take second. With one to go Maxey and Dettbarn battled side by side into turn 1 as they exited turn 2 the made contact sending both spinning and bringing out the caution and checkers and the win to Givens. Rounding out the top five were thirteenth starting Davey Pullen, seventeenth starting Chris Tatum, ninth starting John Kirby and Mark Wright. Ernie Dettbarn picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his tenth place finish.
