Three First Time Winners at Dominion
Saturday night was highlighted by three races where three first time winners were crowned in victory
lane and Chris Humblet takes a tighter hold on the points lead in the modified division
The Late Model class had races that were for drivers who had not won a feature and were not point
races. The first one was a 75 lap feature which was for anyone who had not won at Dominion this year
and Alex Brock, who was the fastest in qualifying but started fourth after the invert, took the lead with
49 to go and never looked back for his first win on the year. The second feature which was a 25-lap
sprint, was for anyone never having won a Whelen Series feature and that saw John Goin take home his
first ever feature win.
The mini cups had twin features on the night and the first one looked like the winner would be decided
by who was left on the track at the end. After surviving five cautions and a green, white, checkered flag
finish, Justin Herndon took the checkered flag for the first 25 lap feature, followed by Tyler Warriner,
Johnny Shonk and Shane Zupo. The second feature was clean and green the entire 25 lap feature and
saw Herndon take the second feature as well followed by Warriner, Zupo, Tyler Roach and John Hager.
In the modified division, Chris Johnson was able to gain two point on the points leader Chris Humblet by
finishing one spot in front of him in the 35-lap feature. Humblet holds a 32-point lead with only two
races left on the season. Jimmy Humblet took his fourth win of the year followed by Johnson, C.
Humblet and Mike Rudy and Mike Carte.
The dominion Stock division ran 40 laps with Andrew Condrey taking his fourth win of the year and
gained some much-needed points on Gary Burke for the points championship. The two came in tied with
128 points and they have 1 race left to decide the title. The top four in the feature were Condrey, Bobby
Curtis, Burke and Richard Powers.
The UCAR had the Clutches and Purses race last night that saw Amanda Hoak take her first ever
checkered flag. Rounding out the field were Kim Oliver, Jackie Storm, Crystal Coates and Lisa Brady.
This coming Saturday is Championship Night at Dominion where several points battles will be decided.
Every division will be running as well as a pre race Track or treat for the kids, a carnival in the 118 Bar
and grill, and points champions crowned. Gates open at 3 and green flag drops at 5 pm.
