A beautiful Friday evening greeted race fans, drivers and car owners last night at "America's Favorite Bullring", Wake County Speedway. The LeithCars.com 210 was action packed with 7 divisions competing during the night. Thank you all for supporting the 50/50 last night for Jim D. Barbee in memory of Melanie Merritt Jones.
Goldsboro speedster Clay Jones turned back all challengers to win the 60 lap feature for the Solid Rock Carriers Late Model division. Cory Walker from Fuquay- Varina roared under the stripe in 2nd place followed by Boo Boo Dalton, Liberty with pole sitter Daniel Vuncannon from Fuquay and Brandon Hobbs rounding out the top 5 positions. Jones thanked his family, friends and crew from Capital Chevy victory lane. Angier wheelman Kevin Jefferys dominated the Capps Motorsports Modified Four Cylinder division feature event. Horsepower, handling and new tires were too much as Dennis "The Dominator" Capps suffered engine problems before the main event and a back up car broke in the main event as well. Jefferys dedicated his win to Eulas Morgan, who continues to recover from open heart surgery. Following Jefferys across the line were Justin Marsan, Raleigh, Scott Potter and Dennis Capps in 2nd through 4th place.
The Hocutt's Automotive 4 Cylinder event was a wild affair and after last lap contact between the leaders, T.J. Dillon and Chad Williams coming out of turn 4, Alex Pierce from Apex was awarded the victory, congrats to Pierce and his family and team on his first 2019 visit to Capital City victory lane.
