SOPHOMORE DRIVER, ADAM WHITE GETS FIRST CAREER WIN IN AC DELCO 602 SPORTSMAN

In the 15-lap AC Delco 602 Sportsman feature, rookie Sean Metz looked like a seasoned veteran in leading the first three laps holding off the challenges of both Nick Alberti and Adam White. White made a smooth pass to lead lap four before the yellow flew when Jeff Marker lost a wheel going into turn one.

Alberti grabbed second from Metz on the restart. Metz would lose the handle in the second turn collecting both Joe Tracy and Daniel Johnson. Once out front White had to hold off the challenges of Alberti while Scott Hitchens worked through the field into third.

The trio would put on a great battle for the lead in the closing laps. Alberti tried the high groove around White which allowed Hitchens to slip by with one to go for second. White was not to be denied his first career win as he held off Hitchens to the checked.

White was the 2016 Rookie of the Year and had never raced prior. He was elated in victory lane and gave credit to his dad (modified driver Michael White) and his family and friend for supporting him and his love of racing. Hitchens, with his five wins this second had clenched the his second championship prior to the race. Alberti ended a great run in third with David Jenkins fourth and Ryan Riddle fifth. Heats were won by Jenkins and Alberti.
