"Dehaven Bags Virginia Nationals win in Winchester Season Closer"

"Tanner Kerr Scores RUSH Crate Late Model Thriller"

By Doug Watson

              Winchester, VA-  Jonathan DeHaven put a cap on his championship season as he scored a flag to flag win in last Saturday nights 30-lap Limited Late Model feature at Winchester Speedway. The win for Dehaven, worth $2000, was his 3rd of the season at Winchester and it came steering his trusty Swartz Race Cars no.13D.
             DeHaven blasted from his front row starting spot to grab the race lead on the first circuit and would then hold off eventual runner-up Bryan Bernheisel, who came from 8th on the grid, to score the popular win. "This is a great way to end our season." DeHaven stated post race. "We had a great car all weekend and to finish it off with a win here tonight is what we were hoping to do and we were able to get it done." Jeremy Miller, Bruce Kane and 11th starting Justin Weaver rounded out the top-five. Heats for the 31 entries went to DeHaven, Miller, Kane and Kurt Zimmerman with Jimmy Richards winning the consolation.
            Tanner Kerr drove to his second win of the season in the 30-lap RUSH Crate Late Model main. Kerr, who lined up 4th for the start, snared the top spot from Chuck Bowie on the 3rd lap and then would with stand the repeated advances from runner-up Logan Roberson to score the win with his Rocket no.41*. "That was a great race with Logan." Kerr stated in victory lane. "He raced me clean the whole way and I hope we put on a good show for the fans it sure was a lot of fun racing as hard as we did here tonight."  Mike Franklin, Steve Lowery and 13th starting Darin Henderson trailed at the finish. Heats for the 21 car field went to Logan Roberson, Kyle Lee and Chuck Bowie. 
            Craig Parrill took his 4th Winchester feature win and 15th overall victory of the 2017 season in the 35-lap Pure Stock main. Parrill took the lead from Keith Koontz on the 18th lap and would run to the finish uncontested for the win. "I owe everything we've done this season to car owner Dickie Tharp." Said Parrill. "There's nothing like winning here in front of the hometown crowd." Brandon Churchey, Ryan Smith and Jeremy Tinsman would complete the top-five. Heats for the 26 cars entered went to Keith Koontz, Jasen Geesaman and Ryan Smith. 
            Chris Fletcher started on the pole and would wire the field to score his 3rd win of the season in the 30-lap Mid-Atlantic Modified feature. "We had a great car tonight and the track was in great shape." Fletcher quipped. "This win is for all my sponsors and crew, I wouldn't be here without them." Mike Corbin, Jim Bernheisel, Justin Cullum and Mike Potoski followed at the finish. Heats for the 20-cars on hand went to Fletcher and Ray Kable Jr.
           In other weekend action, 2017 track champion Tommy Whitt drove to his 4th win of the season in the 35-lap "Hunter Crane Memorial" Four-Cylinder event, Jonathan Raley collected his third-straight Winchester feature win in the 20-lap Enduro Stock main with Jason Wilkins notching his 9th win of the season in the 20-lap U-Car headliner.
