Dwayne Crockett of Laurel, Del. was in record breaking form on Sunday night in the AC Delco PSC 602 Sportman portion of the Full Throttle “Messick Family 40” program. Crockett started off the night by lowering the track record in the division to a 20.005 around the new tacky surface.
Crockett started on the pole and would drive a flawless 20-laps. Jason Rush gave chase in the early stages before Tom Tannertook up the chase of Crockett on lap three. Matt Stangle followed in the third spot holding off defending point champ, Jordn Justice and former champion Scott Hitchens.
The race went caution free until five to go when Trent VanVorst came to a stop on the inside edge of the front straight. Tanner continued to apply the pressure on Crockett while Justice moved into third. The yellow would be out for a final time as Jeremy Harrington tangled with Stangle in the fourth turn with two laps to go.
Crockett had a perfect restart and held off a good challenge from Tanner to end up in the Victory Graphics Victory Lane and to collect $1000 for the win. Crockett received an additional $80 in lap money courtesy of L&J Sheet Metal of Laurel. Tanner made the three and a half hour tow from Ivyland, Pa. worth while as he finished in second and former track champion, Scott Hitchens made a late race charge to finish in third. Heat winners were Hitchens; David Jenkins & Justice.
