July 9, 2011

Scott Phillips jumped out front of the KFC Late Model feature with Ryan VanderVeen tight behind. About six laps in, Phillips went high coming out of turn two and VanderVeen moved into the lead with Carl Ries in tow. Phillips slid into Mike Nugent, bringing out the caution and sending the slider to the rear. Roger Wing came into the picture running the high side and soon moved Nugent to third, only a length or so behind the leader.


Feature Winner Late Model - Roger Wing, July 9, 2011Wing began to look high and then low to pass VanderVeen. They ran side by side for three laps before Wing took the lead coming out of turn two. Several battles behind Wing had two and three wide fights, allowing Wing to pull away. With eight to go, Wing began to lap cars and build up a decent lead. With about three to go, Wing began to coast, working the high side and went on to win his third feature of the season.

Phillips, CJ Reisbig, and Carl Reis grabbed heat gold with the B-Main going to Tom Dusen.
