The Skinny: Josh Masterson started from the outside of the front row and jumped out to the early lead before a caution slowed the field on lap 2. Dillon Moltz took over the lead on the ensuing restart and held it until a lap 72 restart when Scott Payea used the outside groove to take over the lead. From there, Payea fended off Moltz and pulled away late to score the victory.

 

Winning Quote: “We had good track position to start the race, picked a few cars off and then fell back a bit trying to let the race come back to us. We caught some yellows after a long run and that put us in position to take the lead from Dillon.” – Scott Payea

 

Winning Crew Chief: Rick Paya

 

Winning Chassis: RB Performance

 

Winning Shocks: KONI

On the Move: Rowland Robinson, Jr. started 21st and drove to a seventh-place finish, a gain of 14 spots.

 

Biggest Loser: Mike Ziter started fourth and battled up front for the majority of the race, but an early exit to the pit area resulted in a 25th-place finish.

 

Pre-Feature Notebook: 

-Tonight’s race is also a points-counting race for White Mountain’s Late Model division.  A solid field of home track cars have come out to join tonight’s field.

-Dillon Moltz went from eighth to third to earn a plus five during his qualifying heat. That will put him on the provisional pole for tonight’s race.

-Josh Masterson also drove from his eighth starting spot to third for a plus five. He will unofficially start on the outside of the front row.

-Mark Hudson, the third-place finisher in the fourth qualifying heat, was disqualified in post-qualifying tech for being too low.

-Matt Anderson, the fourth-place finisher in the first consolation race, was disqualified in post-qualifying technical inspection.

-Spencer Morse, the third-place finisher in the second consolation race, was also DQ’d in post-qualifying inspection.

-Spencer Morse received the 100% ACT provisional, while Matt Anderson received the White Mountain provisional.

Car Count: 34 ACT Late Models.

 

Qualifying Format: There will be four 15-lap qualifying races, each qualifying four to the plus/minus. There will then be two 12-lap consolation races each qualifying two to the plus/minus and three to the rear of the field.  There will then be a 10-lap B-feature qualifying two to the rear of the field, one ACT 100-percent provisional and one White Mountain provisional.

 

Event Schedule: Racing starts at 5 p.m. ET. Heats will be run for the ACT Late Models, Tiger Sportsman, Mini Stocks and Dwarf Cars prior to ACT Late Model consolation races. There will then be features for the Mini Stocks (20 laps) and Dwarf Cars (20 laps) before a B-Main feature for the ACT Late Models.  A 30-lap Tiger Sportsman race will set the stage for the 150-lap ACT main event at the end of the night.

 

Who to Watch For: Home track driver Quinny Welch will be a driver to keep an eye on as he’s been the King of White Mountain for the past few years.  Last year’s winner Dillon Moltz will also be tough to beat here at White Mountain.
