Aug 26, 2007 - updated Aug 26th, 2007 10:32am
Web posted by Dave Seay

Jamaica, VA. --

Three years of frustration came to an end for Stevie Long of Mechanicsville, MD as he went flag to flag to pick up his first Victory Lap Late Model at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway. The win looked easy for most of the 35 lap affair as Long held up to a full straight lead over the rest of the field but a couple of late race cautions closed the field back on Long’s bumper. On each restart Long had to hold off the challenges of Brett Royal of Ownings, MD to hold on to the top spot. Long finally pulled away by two car lengths driving his #44 Dean Guy Masonry & Concrete Walls / Clarke's Landing Restaurant / Triple K Fence Co / HVAC Mechanical / HVAC Mechanical / www.volhouse.com / Chevrolet Monte Carlo Mastersbilt to victory.

“We’ve been racing here for three years now and each year seems to always end in heartache for us, this is just awesome to finally get our first win here at VMS,” commented a very excited Long in victory lane.

Rounding out the top five were Brett Royal, Walker Arthur, Tom Cohick and Louie Littlepage Jr. Chris Stacy picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his eighth place finish.

In other action Craig Folmar of Phillipsburg, PA took the lead from Mary Anne Williams of Chester, VA on lap 10 and then cruised to his seventh New Generation Racing Sprint Car victory of the season. In the Budweiser Modified 25 lap feature 15 year old Brandon Galloway of Gloucester, VA swept the outside of Mark Schools of Midlothian, VA and Tommy Shiflet of Sandston, VA with one to go to take the lead and his third win of 2007. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature Roger Jamerson of Glen Allen, VA held off Kenny Moreland of Waldorf, MD to get his fifth win of the season. In the Charger division Ray Payne of Fredericksburg, VA picked up the lead and the victory heading to the checkers when leaders Bob Terry and Wesley Givens got together in turn 4.

Stevie Long and Brett Royal led the Victory Lap Late Model field to green with Long leading the first circuit. On the next lap Royal looked inside Long for the lead but Long held on by inches at the line. Once out of turn 2 Long began to pull away. The races first caution flew on lap 8 for a spinning Austin Hubbard.

On the restart began to stretch out his lead. By lap 29 Long held a full straight lead over Royal, Tom Cohick and Walker Arthur battling for second. On the restart Royal jumped inside Long heading into turn 1. The two raced side by side with Long holding the top spot by inches at the line. On lap 31 Royal had to hold off Cohick for second before caution fell once again on lap 32.

On the races last restart Long led Royal down into turn 1, this time Long was able to hold Royal off and pull away for his first vitory at VMS.

In the New Generation Sprint Car 25 lap feature Daren Bolac of Moyock, NC and Mary Anne Williams of Chester, VA led the field to green with Bolac leading the first lap followed by Williams, Craig Folmar, Matt Stambaugh and Eric Keck the balance of the top five.

By lap 3 Bolac had extended his lead over Williams and Folmar to ten car lengths. As Williams and Folmar battled for second Bolac began working traffic. On lap 8 a god run on Bolacs part came to an end when he collided with Kevin Atkins on the front stretch.

On the restart Folmar went to the top side out of turn 2 but Williams had enough to hold him off for the top spot. On lap 9 Folmar got back to the inside of Williams as the two raced back to the start/finish line in a dead heat with Williams holding on by inches.

Folmar then powered back to the outside to rocket by Williams heading into turn 3. Williams tried to pull a cross over move but Folmar would have none of it and motored on to take the lead on lap 10. Folmar then pulled away from Williams and the rest of the field. Folmar had to dodge a close call on lap 22 with a lapped car before he could take his seventh victory of the year. Rounding out the top five were Mary Anne Williams, Matt Stambaugh, Eric Keck and Tyler Shipp. Stambaugh picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his third place finish.

In the Budweiser Modified 25 lap feature Mark Schools and Page Harrison led the field to green with Schools taking control out of turn 2 to lead the first lap. On lap 8 the battle was for second between Harrison, Bret Hamilton and Brandon Galloway. On lap 11 Hamilton finally took second as he worked the high side.

On lap 14 Hamilton caught Schools and began his assault for the lead. On lap 15 Hamilton got to the outside of Schools in turn 2 and then secured the lead out of turn 4. The lead would be short lived as Hamilton would have mechanical problems on lap 18.

A caution with two to go put the field back on Schools bumper. On the restart Galloway jumped to the outside working the cushion in a three wide battle with Schools and Shiflet. The three came to the white flag three wide with Schools holding onto the lead by inches. Galloway worked the high side to perfection and swept around the outside to take the lead and his third win of 2007. Rounding out the top five were Tommy Shiflet, Mark Schools, Brent Bordeaux and Rich Marks. Galloway picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his win.

In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature J.R. guy and Kenny Moreland led the field to green with Moreland leading the first lap. On lap 1 caution came out for Tim Shelton. Under caution Moreland also came to pit road with a flat right rear tire surrendering the lead to Guy.

On lap 13 Moreland worked his way back into the top five in a side by side duel with Davis Lipscombe. On lap 16 he took fourth from Clyde Glenn Jr.

On lap 17 Guy got inside Stacy heading into turn 1, the two raced side by side into turn three where Stacy lost control of his car on the high side bringing out the caution flag once again. On the restart Roger Jamerson dove inside of Guy out turn 2 to take the lead with Moreland following to second. Jamerson held off Moreland on multiple occasions to take home a very emotional win. Rounding out the top five were Kenny Moreland, Chris Stacy, Tommy Upshaw and Clyde Glenn Jr. Moreland picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his second place finish.

In the Charger 25 lap feature it came down to the last three laps as Bob Terry and Wesley Givens battled once again for the lead. On lap 22 Terry went inside out of turn 4, racing side by side into turn 1. As the pair entered turn 3 Givens crossed over to get inside Terry to keep the lead out of turn 4.

As the two raced back to the white flag Terry went back outside to make it a side by side duel for the top spot.
