"Arnold's Third E-Mod Score is the Coveted Ernie D's 40"

By Doug Watson

           Winchester, (VA)- Andy Anderson was victorious in last Saturday nights 35-lap Limited Late Model Fall Nationals at Winchester Speedway. The win for Anderson, worth $2525, was his second Winchester feature win of the season and it came steering his Bruce Kane owned Rocket no.15K.
           Anderson out dragged fellow front row starter Jonathan DeHaven to take the lead as the field roared off turn two. Anderson would eventually lead all 35-circuits in a dominating performance on the very racy Winchester surface. "I've been saying this all year long, but all this is becasue of Bruce Kane." Anderson stated in victory lane. "He's given me a great opportunity driving his cars and I'm glad we were able to get this team another win." Kyle Hardy rallied late for second aboard Chuck Bowie's RUSH legal Crate Late Model with Jonathan DeHaven, Trever Feathers and Scott Merryman completing the top-five. Heats went to Anderson, DeHaven, Hardy and Kyle Lear. Veteran Brad Omps took the win in the 15-lap B-Feature.
           Chris Arnold continued his late season mastery of Winchester Speedway as he took his third win a row and it came in the "Ernie D's 40" E-Mod championship. Dan Davies shot from the pole to snare the race lead and would lead to the 12th lap when Austin Holcombe blew in and took it. Chris Arnold arrived in second on the 21st lap and went after Holcombe. The next 16 laps would have the Winchester faithful on their feet as Arnold and Holcombe swapped the lead several times with breathtaking slide jobs at both ends of the speedway. Holcombe's brilliant drive came to an abrupt end as his car quit on the 38th lap. Arnold was then able to control the final two circuits behind the wheel of his David Reutimann built no.99W to collect the $4025 pay day. "Austin and I have raced together a lot, but that was probably the most fun I've ever had." A Jubilant Chris Arnold said afterward. "We've only raced here four times and we seem to run well and I hope we put on a good show for all the fans." Dan Davies hung tough for second, 22nd starting Keith Jackson took third with KC Burdette and Eddie Carrier rounding out the top-five. Heats went to David Stremme, Chris Arnold, Mike Franklin and Dan Davies with twin consolations going to Allen Brannon and Keith Jackson. Former track champion Ray Kable Jr. took top honors in the 20-lap, $1025 to win, E-Mod B-feature.
