"Sutphin Breaks Through for RUSH Crate Score"

By Doug Watson

                 Budds Creek, MD-  King George Virginia's Tyler Emory added to his point lead with his 3rd win of the season in last Friday nights 20-lap Limited Late Model headliner at Potomac Speedway. The win for Emory, the defending division champion, was his 7th career Potomac feature win and it came steering his trusty Adams/Quade owned Rocket no.23.
                Emory made the most of his front-row starting spot to burst into the race lead on the first lap and drive off unchallenged to take the win over Kurt Zimmerman who was a distant second at the finish. "Joe and Wayne had this car working great tonight." Emory stated post race. "This car is an 06' Rocket with a bunch of updates on it, but it still gets the job done and I'm glad to get another win for this team." Bruce Kane, Brandon Long and Billy Tucker would round out the top-five. Robbie Emory was the heat race winner.
                Jamie Sutphin drove a flawless race to score his first win of the season in the companion 20-lap RUSH Crate Late Model main. Sutphin wrestled the race lead from Chuck Bowie on the second lap and fended off the repeated challenges from defending track champion Darren Alvey to collect his 3rd career win in the class. "I had to make the most of starting on the front row tonight." Sutphin stated. "We've had a lot of bad luck this season and I hope this win will turn things around for us." Chuck Bowie, Matt Glanden and Matt Tarbox trailed at the finish. Heats went to Tarbox and Matt Quade.
               In support class action current point leader Ed Pope Jr. took his 4th win of the season and 12th of his career in the 16-lap Street Stock feature, Jonathan Raley wired the field for his 4th of 2018 and career 29th in the 15-lap Hobby Stock contest, Ed Pope Sr. took his 2nd of the season and career 26th in the 15-lap Strictly Stock event and defending track champion Savannah Windsor rolled to her 4th of the season and career 17th in the 15-lap U-Car feature.
