A clear favorite has finally broken out of the pack at Wake County Speedway in the Dunn Benson Ford Super Late Model divison. Alex Fleming of Raleigh claimed his fourth win of the season Friday night, leading every circuit of the 50-lap main event for the powerful racecars after setting a qualifying time of 12.71 seconds. For the second week in a row, points leader Chargin’ Charlie Stephenson crashed out of the event. This week, contact with Bradley McCaskill put Stephenson in the pits on only the second lap. Legend Big Jim Kelly keeps inching his K-7 Monte Carlo closer to his first victory of the season at the .23 mile track, but had to settle for second again last night. A marked improvement over the past few races for hometown favorite Curtis Simpkins continued this week as he placed third in his orange #3. Matt Jones finished fourth and Scott Carroll rounded out the top five.
In a big double points event for the Harper’s Graphix Limited Late Model cars, Jason White recovered from two bad weeks in a row to win his fifth feature event of the season. After qualifying on the pole with a lap of 13.64, White dominated the event from start to finish in the Apple Auto Insurance, Advance Auto mount. Keith Oliver, who has won the last two races at the track, crashed early in the event on the backstretch and finished a disappointing 11th. Andy Wiley posted another good finish, rolling to second place. Brandon Ennis recovered from a spectacular wreck with White last week to finish third. Jim Place posted a career best finish in fourth and Lance Morgan took his first top five ever after moving from go-karts.
Todd Langdon won his second feature in a row in the North Carolina Iron Works Pro Mod class. Last year’s champion took the Powertek Ford Taurus to victory lane after qualifying on the pole. Chris Privette had another strong showing in the #51 Ford Probe to finish second. Dennis Capps finished third, Keith Weatherly fourth and Matthew Denton scored his first top five.
After spinning from the lead on the last lap last week in the Citgo Mini Mart Stock Four class, T.J. Dillon won his first race of the year Friday in the #51 Advance Auto, Apple Auto Insurance Mustang. Last week’s winner Jessie Richardson Jr. was second, David Champion third, Lizzy Smith fourth and Aaron Champion fifth.
