By CHARLIE BROWN, DELMAR, DE – Jamie Mills looked strong in winning his second NAPA Big Block Modified feature and Andrew Mullins regained the lead on the final turn of the 20-lap Super Late Model for a thriller that had the fans on their feet in Saturday night’s Military Appreciation Night at the Delaware International Speedway.
Shawn Ward continued to show speed as he jumped out to the early lead from his pole starting position in the 25-lap NAPA Big Block Modified feature. Matt Hawkins held the second spot until Matt Jester appeared from sixth to take second on lap five. The only yellow was out two laps later as Drew Simmons slowed to a stop on the front straight.
Mills was up from the seventh starting spot and tucked into second on the restart. Mills immediately went to work on Ward taking the lead one lap later. Jester followed into the second spot but by halfway Mills was opening the gap. Jester would keep Mills in his sight but would not get close enough to mount a challenge. It was the second win this season for Mills. Jester finished in second with Beau Wilkins, who started in eighth, finishing third. Fourth went to Jordan Watson and H.J. Bunting rounded out the top five. Heats were won by Scott VanGorder and Mills.
