"Palmer's Career Season Continues With Winchester Nationals Victory"

"Parrill Tops in Pure Stock Main"

By Doug Watson

                Winchester, VA-  Greencastle Pa.'s Scott Palmer, the 2014 Winchester Speedway Limited Late Model track champion, drove to his fourth feature win of the season in last Saturday nights 30-lap Virginia Nationals. The win for Palmer, worth a cool $2000, was his first-career Nationals win at Winchester and made him two-for two in the Nationals events as he won the Hagerstown Speedway event two weeks prior.
               Scott Adams and Justin Weaver brought the field to the initial green flag with Weaver darting into the race lead as the mob raced off turn-two. As Weaver set the pace, third-starting Scott Palmer settled into second, and went after Weaver. The duo battled furiously during the first-half of the race with Palmer securing the race lead on the 16th-circuit. Palmer would go on to lead the remainder of the event but would have to withstand the repeated challenges by eventual runner-up Justin Weaver over the final laps to secure the win. "I just cant say enough about the MBH MasterSbilt cars." Palmer stated in the Winchester victory lane. "Justin was running a good race and I knew if I got to him he'd race me clean, but this car was so good tonight, I was able to move around a bit and we were able to get the lead and hold Justin off." Slick but racy track conditions aided Palmer in his winning drive. "This was our kind of track tonight." Palmer stated. "This car really likes the slick and track conditions played into our favor tonight."  Fifteenth-starting Brad Ritter took third, 2013 Nationals winner Bruce Kane took fourth with 13th-starting Allan Brannon rounding out the top-five. Heats for the 33 cars entered went to Scott Adams, Justin Weaver and Travis Stickley with Robbie Emory winning the consolation. 
              Craig Parrill drove to his 5th win of the season, and biggest of his career, in the 35-lap Pure Stock main. 2014 track champion Mike Franklin burst into the race lead from his second stating spot with Mike Corbin and David Kaiser in tow. The trio broke free from the remainder of the field and waged hand to hand combat for the first 20-laps of the race. The complexion of the race changed dramatically as Franklin and Corbin tangled on a lap-21 re-start sending Franklin to the rear and Corbin to the pits. Kaiser took the lead for one lap before 11th-starting Craig Parill, who redoached the top-five on the 10th lap, drove by and lead the remaining laps to post the $2000 win. Kaiser held on for second Mike Bennett was third, Mike Franklin charged from the rear of the field to collect fourth with Brian Luttrell completing the top-five. Heats for the 28 cars on hand went Josh Wilkins, Corbin and Franklin with Rick Stouffer winning the consolation.
             Ryan Laye, the 2014 Hagerstown track champion, took top honors in the 35-lap Four cylinder feature. Justi Hottle lead the first 15-laps before 2014 Winchester champion Cody Kershner swept by to take the lead. As Kershner lead, sixth-starting Ryan Laye arrived, and the battle was on. Laye and Kershner raced door to door with Laye finally securing the race lead and eventual win on the 31st lap. Kershner held tough for second, 8th starting Gage Whitsell was third, Hottle wound up fourth with 14th-starting Kevin Thomas rounding out the top-five. Heats for the 26 car field went to Shaine Sixeas, Hottle and Laye. 
            In support action, 2014 Hagerstown speedway Hobby Stock champion Gary Proctor drove to his first-career Winchester feature win in Friday nights 20-lap Enduro stock feature and would make it two-for-two as he took top honors in Saturday's 20-lap feature. Youthful Haley Kaiser made Winchester history as she became the youngest feature winner in track history, at just 13, with her first career feature win in Friday nights 20-lap U-Car main in a convincing flag-to-flag victory. In Saturday's U-Car main, after a slew of DQ's, found Steve Fadeley in victory lane for his second win of the season. After his win, Fadeley announced in victory lane his retirement from the class. Stephen Critchfield was the winner of Friday's 8-lap Lawn Mower feature.
