By Doug Watson

               Budds Creek, MD-  Bruce Kane drove a flawless race to score his first win of the season in last Friday nights 20-lap Limited Late Model feature at Potomac Speedway. The win for Kane, aboard his Rocket XR-1 no.1K, was his 4th career win at the track and his first since the 2014 season.  
               Kane blasted from his pole starting spot to grab the lead on the first lap and would never look back to score the win. Eventual runner-up Derick Quade chased Kane for the duration, but would settle for second at the finish. "We've had this car for two season's now and I think we finally got it where we need to be." Kane stated post race. "This place is always in good shape and that's why we came down tonight, and its great to get all the people who help with this car a win." Billy Tucker, Jonny Oliver and Sam Archer trailed at the finish. 
              In just his second start of the season, former track champion Ben Bowie drove to his first win of the season in the companion 20-lap RUSH Crate Late Model main. Bowie grabbed the lead on the first lap and held off his brother Chuck Bowie, to score his 5th career win in the class and first since the 2015 season. "We've really struggled the past two years and it's nice to finally have some good equipment again." Said Boiwe. "This class is so tough and it's great to win over all the good cars that come here." Logan Roberson, Matt Glanden and Jimmy Jesmer Jr. completed the top-five. 
              In support class action, Ed Pope Jr. romped to his 5th win of the season in the 16-lap Street Stock feature, Greg Morgan took his first of the season in the 15-lap Hobby Stock main, Jeff Block collected his 2nd win in a row in the 15-lap Strictly stock contest with Larry Lamb posting his 2nd win of the season in the 15-lap U-Car feature.
