“Trevor Collins Takes Ernie Jones Memorial Sunday at Potomac”

“Hulson Savors Career Night With Modified Mafia Victory”

By Doug Watson 

    Budds Creek, MD (5/28/23)- Seaford Delaware’s Trevor Collins utilized key tire management to score his first career Potomac Late Model feature win in last Sunday nights 30-lap “Ernie Jones Memorial”. The win for Collins, worth $3022, came steering his Rocket no.11 and would cap off a great weekend as he scored his career first Crate Late Model win Saturday at Hagerstown Speedway.
    Tyler Emory and Collins brought the field to green with Emory securing the lead as the field raced off turn two. A Emory was setting a fast pace and masterfully driving through lapped cars, his first career Potomac win seemed eminent. As Emory went into turned three on lap 27 his right rear tire gave up forcing him to pit, handing the lead to Collins. With tire wear now an issue, Colin’s had just enough left to lead the remaining three laps to secure the win. “This has been an awesome weekend.” Collins stated in victory lane. “Late in the race I could see Tyler over driving the corners and I kind of figured his tires may not last.” Collins said. “I was worried when he stopped, but we had just enough tire left to hold everybody off.” As Collins was celebrating post race, his right rear tire went flat. Drake Troutman hung tough for second with Logan Roberson, 12th starting Andy Anderson and 10th starting Cody Lear completing the top five. Heats went to Kyle Lear, Logan Roberson and Drake Troutman.
   Glen Burnie Maryland’s Rick Hulson drove a masterful race to secure his first career Potomac E-Mod win in the 30-lap “Modified Mafia” contest. Just like in the Late Models, tire management was critical, however Hulson kept all four tires in check to lead all 30-laps to score the $2500 win. “I knew I had to save my tires so I drove the car as straight as I could with the way the track was tonight and it feels great to finally get a win down here.” Ray Kable, Chris Arnold, Cody Oliver and TJ DeHaven trailed at the finish. 
    In support class action, Logan Carbaugh scored his first career Potomac feature win in the 20-lap Central Pa. Legend’s feature, Justin Hatcher became the first repeat winner of the season with his victory in the 15 lap Hobby Stock main and Kelly Crouse Rolled to his second consecutive 15 lap U Car triumph.
