Jamaica, VA --

The race for the Victory Lap Late Model Championship at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway couldn’t have been much tighter heading into the last point race of the season as Austin Hubbard of Seaford, DE and Tom Cohick of Gloucester, VA went into the night a mire eight points apart. After qualifying Cohick had cut it to six points, that’s as close as Cohick would get. Come feature time Hubbard let it all hang out working his way to the front by lap 16 working inside Mark Parks of Forest, VA for the lead on way to his third win of the season and the 2007 Victory Late Model Championship. For his efforts Hubbard picked up $10,000 of the $25,000 championship point fund.

“This is the biggest accomplishment of my racing career, I told my crew that if we win the race then we know we win the championship, there was no holding back tonight,” commented an excited Hubbard in victory lane.

“To win the championship here is unbelievable, these are the best drivers in the country,” added Hubbard when asked about his competition.

Rounding out the top five were Walker Arthur, Stevie Long, Louis Timberlake and Sommey Lacey. Scott Nelson picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with a thirteenth place finish.

In other action Page Harrison of Jetersville, VA picked up the Budweiser Modified victory in an exciting battle with Brian Dobie of Partlow, VA that saw six lead changes, while Bret Hamilton of Powhatan, VA picked up the 2007 Modified Championship. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman Roger Jamerson of Glen Allen, VA took home his sixth victory of the season as Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA took home the Championship. In the Charger 25 lap feature Bob Terry of Stafford, VA put an exclamation point on his 2007 Championship by taking the lead on lap 14 to get his seventh win of the season. In the All American 15 lap feature Brett Adkins of Saluda, VA took home his first victory of 2007 as Kevin Fletcher of Saluda, VA finished seventh and was crowned the 2007 Champion.

In the Victory Lap Late Model 30 lap feature Sommey Lacey and Mark Parks led the field to green with Parks taking control and leading the first circuit followed closely by Lacey, Walker Arthur, Matt Morgan, Tom Cohick and Austin Hubbard.

On lap 4 Cohick brought out the races first caution with a spin in turn four ending his chances at the championship. On the restart Parks kept Lacey at bay as Arthur worked Morgan for third. On lap 8 Hubbard worked inside Arthur for fourth only to give it back the next lap. On lap 10 the races second caution came up for a spinning Morgan in turn 2.

On the restart Hubbard drove it hard under Parks into turn 1, the two battle side by side back to the line with Hubbard taking the lead by inches.

Caution came out on lap 8 for a spinning Brent Bordeaux in turn 4. On the restart Harrison jumped inside Dobie to battle for the top spot. Harrison took the lead on lap 10 only to give it back the next lap as the two swapped the top spot six times before Harrison took control.

In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature Davis Lipscombe and Roger Jamerson led the field to green in a battle for the championship. Heading into turn 1 Lipscombe got on the gas a bit too quick spinning his car in front of the field, sending him to the rear.

On the restart Jamerson took control of the race as he pulled away from the second place battle between Tim Shelton and Walker Arthur. All eyes were on Lipscombe as he began his assault to get back into the top five. Lipscombe picked off positions one by one and by lap 14 was back in fifth.

By lap 20 Jamerson had worked his way to a substantial lead over Shelton who continued to race side by side with Arthur for second.
