Rain takes another at Wythe

WYTHEVILLE – The Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series made their second visit to the ½-mile super speedway Saturday night for a 40-lap feature. All other weekly division races were also set for action.
The night began with the Ucars 20-lap feature. Pie Short, Abingdon, jumped out to an early lead over Marion’s Tim Widener. Short led every lap taking the win over Widener. Chuck Kinzer, Independence, posted his best finish of the season with third place. Cody Dutton, Chilhowie, and Josh Dunford, Austinville, rounded out the top five. Short extended her lead in the points over Dutton and Bland’s Jake Eaton.
The Berglund Performance Parts Late Models qualifying results saw Radford’s Clinton Cook pick up another pole. An invert of the top four cars was announced which put Pilot driver Jason Lawrence and Randy Taylor, Troutdale, on the front row. Then The Carolina Clash drivers took to the track for two laps of qualifying. When all was said and done Blairsville, GA driver Jonathan Davenport came out on top with a 16.414 second lap.
The next feature on the night was the Berglund Late Models. Lawrence brought the field to the green flag. Cook and Matt Parks, Wytheville, made quick passes on Taylor moving into second and third. A further battle between the two saw Parks move into second over Cook. On a restart following a lap 9 caution Parks pulled up beside Lawrence, but the high line gave the momentum to Lawrence. Lawrence, who debuted a brand new racecar, prevailed in a dominant fashion leading flag to flag en-route to his first career Wythe Raceway feature win. Parks and Cook came to the checkers side by side. Cook edged out Parks by a few inches taking second place. Taylor held on to fourth place and David Wikle, Dublin, came home in fifth place.
With the possibility of rain the Carolina Clash feature was lined up to go next. Davenport led the field to the green flag. Racing was two and three wide front to back. On lap 2 the caution flag flew for a flip on the backstretch. All drivers’ conditions were reported okay. Then the skies opened up and the cars were brought into the pits. Shortly thereafter the call was made to postpone the race. Rain checks will be honored on the make-up date.
A decision will be made on a make up date as soon as possible. Check WytheRaceWay.com for information on the make up date.
