RICKY ELLIOTT SIX FOR SIX IN LATE MODELS

elliott6Amanda Whaley finally got her engine back and by virtue of the inversion draw, started on the pole in the 20-lap Super Late Model feature. Whaley held off Nick Davis for the first circuit before Ricky Elliott came charging by on the outside from seventh to take the lead on lap two.

 

Donald Lingo, Jr. got by Davis for third and two laps later passed Whaley for second. Lingo was not able to close on Elliott who opened over a five second advantage. Just when it looked like the race would go non-stop Bob Geiger came to a stop with six to go. Elliott took off like a rocket on the restart and remained perfect as he collected his sixth consecutive checkered. Lingo finished in the second spot with Davis third. Whaley posted her first finish in a long time with a respectable fourth and Brandon Dennis rounded out the top five. Heats were won by Elliott and Dennis.

 

Late Model Finish: 1. Ricky Elliott; 2. Donald Lingo, Jr. 3. Nick Davis; 4. Amanda Whaley; 5. Brandon Dennis; 6. Lou Johnson; 7. Bob Geiger; DNS: David Hill
