Hollidge Closes Winchester Season With RUSH Crate Late Model Score"

"Altobelli Takes E-Mod Feature, Hulson Series Title"

By Doug Watson

                  Winchester, Va-  Dale Hollidge closed the 2018 season in a big way as he took top honors in the 30-lap RUSH Crate Late Model main last Saturday night at Winchester Speedway. The win for Hollidge, aboard his Greg Gunter owned Rocket no.0, was worth $1000 and it would be the first of his career with the RUSH Crate Late Models.
                  Hollidge darted into the lead from the pole and would eventually lead every lap, but would have to withstand a late race charge from Devin Brannon to preserve the win. "This class has a lot of good cars and drivers and it's not easy to win against them." Hollidge stated from victory lane. "We put this car together about a month and a half ago and we seem to have it pointed in the right direction." Jonathan DeHaven, Tanner Kerr and 2018 track champion Mike Franklin rounded out the top-five. Heats for the 20 cars entered went to went to Hollidge and DeHaven. 
                 Michael Altobelli Jr. closed the season the way he started it, with a win in the 30-lap Mid Atlantic Modified feature. Altobelli, like Hollidge in the Crates, boomed from the pole to lead the distance for his 5th Winchester feature win of the season steering his Roy Harding Motorsports no.95. "There was a small strip of moisture there on the bottom and when we got to it this car just took off." Altobelli stated post race. "We've had a dream season and big thanks to everyone on the team for another great car tonight." With his third place finish, Rick Hulson was crowned the 2018 Mid-Atlantic Modified Series champion. "It's been a great season." Said Hulson after the event. "It goes to show hard work, dedication and surrounding yourself with good people and good help pays off." Daniel Parker, Brian Duffy and Altobelli took heat race wins. 
                 In support class action, Shawn Shoemaker took his first career Winchester feature win in the 20-lap Enduro Stock feature, Justin Hottle scored his 3rd win of the season in the 25-lap Four Cylinder main with Chad Brill taking top honors for the 3rd time this season in the 20-lap U-Car contest.
