EVANS EARNS FIRST WIN OF SEASON ON ELLIOTT FARMS NIGHTadmin
Delmar, DE- Dylan “The Millsboro Missile” Evans was stout all Saturday night, having the fast time in hot laps, winning his heat race, and being victorious in the 20-lap feature event.
Evans jumped to an early lead from the third position, utilizing the Delaware start technique and being on the outside. Kevin Scott, Jr., quickly followed in pursuit with Nick Davis. The battle was for the top-five, as Ricky Elliott, Amanda Whaley, and Donald Lingo, Jr., were three-wide for position.
Lingo would ultimately take the fourth position and set his sights on Davis for third. Elliott would continue to be crowded by Whaley and hard charging Mark Pettyjohn.
Davis continued to hammer the high line of the slick race track and slowly began losing positions to drivers “bottom feeding”on the ½ mile.
With two to go, Davis spun in turns three and four, waving the first caution of the event and erasing Evans’ nearly three second advantage.
On the restart, Lingo and Elliott pounced on Scott, taking the second and third position.
Evans would have a clear view, as he held off veteran drivers, Lingo and Elliott for his first Super Late Model feature event win of the season. Mark Pettyjohn spun coming for the checkered flag, collecting Kevin Scott, Jr. Amanda Whaley and Kerry King rounded out the top five.
In victory lane, Evans stated, “We had a good car all night. It is good to be back!”
