(Columbus, OH)…George Lindsay captured his second late model feature victory in Saturday’s NASCAR Whelen All American Series event at Columbus Motor Speedway. Competing in his first full season of action in the track’s top division, the Groveport, OH native started seventh and wasted little time asserting himself. Sweeping past early leader Burgess White near the midpoint of the 35-lap affair, Lindsay outran the field to secure the victory.
Josh Cahill and White brought the field to the green flag with the latter pulling ahead following a three lap side-by-side battle. With White out front, Cahill fell into the clutches of Kyle Purvis and Lindsay already moving forward. Disposing of Purvis on lap seven Lindsay set out after the leader closed quickly. Using the outside lane around the third mile paved oval, Lindsay swept past good on lap-16 and never looked back. Purvis ended up second in the final analysis ahead of Matthew Parsons, Chad Pendleton and White.
Terry Humphrey dominated the 30-lap Columbus modified feature contest, his fourth victory of 2014. Starting sixth and the 20 car field, Humphrey was up three spots as five laps went up on the NASCAR scoreboard. Next bypassing Scott Jones, Humphrey continued to take the long way around the speedway disposing of Eddie Vallete at the midpoint of the contest. Humphrey quickly distanced himself from the field and carried a full straightaway advantage through the checkered flag. Shane Shirk made an impressive 2014 debut finishing second ahead of Jones, Shawn Gray and Sean MacNealy.
Bruce Holmes drove his Monte Carlo to win number two of the racing season besting Lisa Harding, Kenny Simpson, James Harding and Ralph Vinson.
In crazy compact feature action, Corey Kyer found himself in victory lane once again powering around early point man Cecil Collins with five laps to go in an exciting 20-lap front wheel drive event. Collins held on for second with Lonnie Brown, Michael Robison and Gwen Walsh rounding out the top five.
In the hilarious trailer race event, Mark Brown outlasted a stellar field of junk cars pulling junk trailers, in a stellar contest. With boats and trailers strewn all over the speedway the highlights included an airborne truck flying over a boat debris and Kyle Purvis acting as a front loader, moving boats out of the infield back on to the race track during the event.
