David Taylor, Willie Milliken Take Top Honors At Lake View

-        For Immediate Release

LAKE VIEW, SC (April 28) – Veteran racers David Taylor and Willie Milliken powered to their first wins of the season Saturday night at Lake View Motor Speedway.   Taylor joins his son, Jordan, as a winner this season in the Open Wheel Modified division, while Milliken was the Late Model victor.

Taylor took advantage of a strange set of circumstances in the Open Wheel Modified division at the track he actually owned from 1992 to 1996.    Front row starters, J. Taylor and Daniel Parker, failed to get a clean start in two attempts, including one that saw them spin together on the front stretch, and were moved back to the second row behind D. Taylor and Andy Boahn.   D. Taylor jumped to the lead from the start and held off Boahn, J. Taylor, Parker, and Timmy Blackwell.

“This place has always meant a lot to me and the Tripp family has done a great job getting it back up and going and we’re planning to do all we can to support them this year as much as we can,” said Taylor afterwards.

              “The Wild Child” Willie Milliken of Roanoke Rapids, NC blistered the track for the second time this season in qualifying to take the pole with a lap of 17.138 seconds.   And, unlike the first race this season when eventual winner Dean Bowen got the advantage over Milliken at the start, on this night Milliken jumped to the front and would never be headed.   Milliken captured the win over Bowen, Johnny Pridgen, Chris Miller, and Zachary Cox.

              Myrtle Beach’s Benji Thompson dominated to take the Super Street division win over Cameron Norris, IV, Chris Powers, Johnny Moore, and Scott Lewis.

              Another strong field of Pure Stocks was in action Saturday night, but Martin Sweatt brought a brand new car out and dominated to take the checkered flag over Michael Butler, Jeffrey Batten, Sam Martin, and Mike Manes.

              Kevin Weatherford got the advantage at the start over his brother, Chris, to take the 4 Cylinder win.   Chris Weatherford would finish second, followed by Chris Gerald, Corey Singleton, and Jason Floyd

“Rowdy” Richard Seals got a birthday present as his took his second U-Car win over Glenn Register, Kyle Jenks, Derek Kemper, and Frank Medina.

              The Southern Mini Late Models were also in action and Matthew Lawson came back from an opening lap crash to win over Jayson Didonna, Clay Collins, Kenny Dobbs, and Mike Babcock.

Lake View Motor Speedway will be in action again on Saturday night, May 19 featuring Pure Stock Twins, Late Models, Super Street, Pure Stock, 4-Cylinder, and UCar racing.   Be sure to “Like” the Lake View Motor Speedway on Facebook to keep up on all that’s going on in 2018 or visit lakeviewmotorspeedway.com.
