Saluda, VA --

It took five years, but Donnie Marshall Jr. of Gloucester, VA finally got his first win in late model action as he piloted his Marshall Motorsports #1M West Sandblasting & Painting, Virginia Country Real Estate, York Awards, Cams Racing Engines powered Rocket to victory in the Victory Lap Late Model 35 lap feature at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, VA.

Tom Cohick and Scott Adams led the field to green with Marshall starting 17th. Cohick would win the battle into turn 1 to lead the first lap. Cohick paced the first 10 laps with Scott Adams and Ronald Cusic glued to his bumper.

Cusic took second from Adams on lap 12 and set out for Cohick. On lap 16 Cusic got inside Cohick in turn 3 taking the lead and then pulling away. A caution, on lap 21, for point leader Jared Powell and Jamie Lathroum getting together in turn 1. On the restart Cohick jumped to the inside of Cusic regaining the lead.

Behind Cohick the battle was for second as Cusic worked to defend his spot from Brian Staton, Ray Love Jr. and the seventeenth starting Marshall.

Caution would come out for the last time on lap 31 when Love tried to swing to the outside of Cusic for second making contact and sending both drivers spinning. On the restart Cohick had Marshall, Staton, Walker Arthur and Stevie Long ready to take the top spot. Staton tried to get to the inside of Marshall in turn 2 for second but couldn’t make the move work. Marshall kept pace with Cohick and in turn 4 muscled his ride to the inside of Cohick, taking the lead at the stripe.

Marshall would then cruise to his first career late model win with Cohick, Staton, Arthur and Sommey Lacey rounding out the top five.

“It’s big when you can beat any of these guys out here, Jamie (Lathroum), Tom (Cohick) all them guys are fast, I didn’t think I would be able to get by Tom but he pushed up in the corner and I just went under him and didn’t want to look back,” commented Marshall when asked how big his first win was to his team.

“You got a field full of talent, I have to thank my crew and sponsors for helping me get here, five years and I finally got me a win,” added the elated Marshall.

Walker Arthur picked up the Thurston Spring Service Rookie of the Race Award with his fourth place finish.

In other action Jamie Lathroum of Mechanicsville, MD set the tone for the night in the Budweiser Modified division when he blistered the division’s track record in hot lap qualifying. It didn’t take long for Bret Hamilton of Powhatan, VA to take the lead as he wrestled it away from Brian Dobie on lap 2. Hamilton never looked back holding off Lathroum to take home his seventh win of the season.

In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature Walker Arthur continued his domination as he started eighth ad then took the lead on lap 4 with a pass on Daren Bolac. Arthur had to hold off the challenge of Roger Jamerson on the last restart with two to go to pick up his ninth victory.

The Al’s Auto Parts Charger 25 lap feature was full of action with three lead changes in the first seven laps. Chris Tatum led the first lap from his front row starting position giving up the lead on lap 5 to John Imler. On lap 6 Brian Maxey took the lead and then on lap seven, Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA took the lead for good pulling away and cruising to his eighth win of the season.

In the Dixie Chopper All Americans Dustin Owens of North, VA drove from his eighth place starting position to take the lead from point leader Marty Coltrain on lap 3. Owens then motored his way to his seventh win of the season and third in a row.
