LINGO DOUBLES DOWN FOR BACK TO BACK WINS
Delmar, DE- Donald Lingo, Jr. proved to be a top-contender in the S.R. Pete & Son Super Late Models, as he collected his third victory of the season, in similar fashion to last week. “Everybody has the best of the best! We have not been this good in a long while. It feels like the old days,” said an excited Lingo in victory lane.
It was déjà vu as Kerry King led the field to the green flag of the 25-lap Super Late Model qualifier, with Amanda Whaley and Ross Robinson fighting to get to the front first. The two swapped positioned and the anticipated slide job, as they cleared King by lap two. It was Whaley and Robinson who swapped the top position for the next three laps.
On lap six, similarly to last week, Lingo, Jr., dove to the bottom of Whaley and Robinson, powering to the top position discreetly.
A lap eight restart would regroup the field, with Lingo remaining unpressured. Whaley maintained the second position, with Ricky Elliott passing Robinson for third.
A single-file restart on lap 15 would allow for Elliott to crank it up on the outside of Whaley to take over the second position. A lap later, Whaley slowed with mechanical issues.
Lingo would stretch out a nearly half straightway lead with their family-built motor over Elliott, Mark Pettyjohn, Robinson, and Nick Davis.
Charles Shawver took the lead from Joe Pete on lap two to collect the RUSH Late Model victory. Shawver extended a three second lead over second place, Sparky White, Matt Hill, Derek Magee, and Billy Thompson.
Chris Martinez outlasted Ashley Merritt and Robert Paczkowski to win the Delmarva Charger feature event.
