Chad Pendleton took advantage of mechanical woes of Donnie Hill and Kyle Purvis to claim Saturday’s NASCAR Whelen All American Series feature and the 2014 Columbus Motor Speedway track championship that went with it. Starting eighth, Pendleton watched as, first, Purvis dropped out with ignition failure and then Hill’s engine expired before powering around early race leader George Lindsay to secure the victory. Hill had entered the event with a narrow 8-point margin ahead of both Pendleton and Purvis in the closest points battle ever. It was the third consecutive track title for Pendleton who also assured himself the NASCAR Ohio State Championship. Lindsay was second at the stripe followed by 3) Matthew Parsons 4) Bill Browning and 5) Burgess White.
