Jamaica, VA. --

In one of the most competitive Victory Lap Model events in some time, Austin Hubbard of Laurel, DE led flag to flag to pick up the victory at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway but the victory did not come easy.

Hubbard and Matt Morgan led the 24 car field to green. It took several restarts before Hubbard could to lay claim to leading the first lap. On lap 3 Sommey Lacey pressured Morgan for second. Lap 5 saw Walker Arthur dive under Tom Cohick for fourth. By la 7 Hubbard was working lapped traffic as Morgan and Lacey battled for second and Arthur and Cohick battled for fourth.

On lap 9 Arthur took third from Lacey and set out for Morgan. On lap 11 Arthur took second from Morgan as the two exited turn 4 in traffic. On lap 12 Cohick drove inside both Lacey and Morgan to take third. On lap 15 Hubbard held a ten car length advantage over Arthur by lap 17 the lead was only two car lengths and closing.

On lap 19 got inside Hubbard in turn 4 but Hubbard was able to hold on to the lead by inches.

From lap 19 to lap 29, with the fans on their feet, the duo raced side by side. On every lap Hubbard would ride the cushion with Arthur trying to work the inside. Each time they would come to the line with Hubbard holding on by inches. The battle for the lead would come to a halt on lap 30 when Arthur lost a left front tire in turn 2. On the restart Arthur pulled away from the field as the battle for second went three wide between Lacey, Morgan and Ben Bowie.

Hubbard went on to record his second win of the season.

“I have to thank Walker (Arthur) for driving me so clean; any other driver might have just put me in the wall. It is a lot of fun to race like that,” commented a Hubbard in victory lane.

Rounding out the top five were Sommey Lacey, Ben Bowie, Scott Adams and Neil McClanan. Kevin Atkins picked up the Thurston Spring Service dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his tenth place finish.

Marshall ran the final 20 laps of the feature with a broken right shock.

It was the survival of the fittest in the New Generation Racing Sprint Car 25 lap feature. Tom Humphries of Waynesboro, VA and Daren Bolac of Moyock, NC led the field to green with Bolac taking control out of turn 2 with Humphries and Craig Folmar of Phillipsburg, PA battling for second.

On the restart Bolac rocketed to a five car length advantage over Fomar. By lap 10 the advantage was up to a full straight with Folmar showing heavy smoke out of the engine compartment. On lap 13 Bolac came up on slower traffic, that’s when things went bad for the leader. While working traffic Bolac ran into the flipping car of Brian Lawson who had made contact with John Snead in turn 3. During the caution Folmar’s car showed flames coming from the engine but it quickly went out and he was able to continue.

On the restart with the top two wounded, Bolac with a crushed front wing and Folmar, leaking oil the battle for the lead heated up as Folmar worked to the inside of Bolac in turn 4 taking the lead. On the races next circuit the races second and final caution flew for a blown engine by Humphries. On the restart Folmar, still smoking, pulled away from Bolac. On lap 15 Matt Stambaugh and Michael Talley battled for fifth with Talley taking the spot at the line.

On the restart Shelton dove under Wood in turn 1 to take the spot and set out to catch Jamerson.
