"Kane is Able, Scores Career-First Saturday at Winchester"
"Corbin Rolls to 10th Pure Stock Victory"
By Doug Watson
                Winchester, VA-  Glen Burnie  Md.'s Bruce Kane drove a masterful race to take top-honors in last Saturday nights "Thunder in October" small car nationals Limited Late Model event at Winchester speedway. The win for Kane, worth $2000, was his first-career victory at Winchester and made him the divisions seventh-different winner of the season.
              Andy Anderson and Bruce Kane shared the front-row for the start of the event with Kane surging into the race lead as the pack raced into turn-one. Kane would go on to lead the distance, but it was no easy trip to victory lane. Eventual runner-up Andy Anderson hounded Kane over the entire 30-lap grind, pulling along side Kane more than once, but was unable to make the pass as Kane sped-off to score the break-through win. "I wasn't even sure if we were going to make it to the track this weekend." Kane stated in his post-race interview. "Six-o'clock Thursday afternoon the engine in this car was in pieces back at the shop and I cant thank Bobby Tipton and all the people who helped get this thing back together." Slick, but racy, track conditions aided in Kane's winning run. "Our car was good all weekend." Said Kane. "The track really came to us tonight and to hold off a guy like Andy Anderson, who's so good here at Winchester, I couldn't be more proud to finally get a win for the crew and all the sponsors." Eighth-starting Scott Palmer was third, tenth-starter James Lichliter took fourth with Travis Stickley rounding out the top-five. Heats for the 30-cars on hand went to Anderson, Kane and Stickley with Rick Hulson winning the consolation.
              Mike Corbin continued his domination of the Pure Stock ranks as he collected his 10th feature win of the season in the divisions 35-lap feature. Corbin, who lined up 2nd for the start, blasted into the race lead on lap-one and would then survive the repeated advances from eventual runner-up Bill Henney to score the win. The win for Corbin, worth $2000, was his second "nationals" win of the season as he was the winner of Hagesrtown Md.'s event back on September 14th. "To win one of these national races is special, and to have now won two in one season, it's amazing." Corbin stated. "I knew Henney was back there." Corbin quipped. "He's pretty good when he comes down here and I knew if I made a mistake, he'd get me, but once again this car was perfect and I owe it all to Ernie Davis, Roy Anderson and all the people who help with this thing." Mike Franklin was third, Jamey Swank took fourth with Stephen Quade completing the top-five. Heats for the 37-car field went to Franklin, Henney, Keith Koontz and Corbin with Doug Bennett and Charles Wyant winning twin consolations.
              Cody Kershner also became a first-time Winchester winner with his win in the 35-lap Four-Cylinder main. Kershner started on the pole and would go on to lead all 35-laps to score the $2000 win. 2013 Winchester track champion Ed Gageby came home second, Kevin Thomas was third, 19th-starting Roger Whitlock collected fourth with Gary Newell rounding out the top-five. Heats for the 28-car field went to Rich Gwizdale, Frankie Gordon and Kershner with Roger Whitlock winning the consolation.
              Dustin Proctor scored his second Winchester win of the season in the 30-lap Enduro Stock feature. Brian Neff was the early leader before Proctor swept by to take the lead for good on lap-4. Proctor would then fend off the challenges of "Krazy" Kenny Thomas, before Thomas succumbed to mechanical issues, to score the win, his first since opening day. Neff would take second, Danny Holmes was third, Paul Jones fourth with David Green filling the front-five. Heats went to Holmes and Neff.
            Kevin Oates (Friday) and Alan Dice (Saturday) scored U-Car wins. Oates win on Friday came over Mark Pollard, Gene Wilson, Alan Dice and Jason Wilkins. Saturday's main saw Dice taking the win over Billy Hill, Gene Wilson, Steve Fadeley and Michael Pfaff.
