                  Budds Creek, MD-   Former track champion Derrick Quade drove to his first win of the season in last Friday nights 20-lap Limited Late Model feature at Potomac Speedway. The win for Quade, steering his MasterSbilt no.74 was his 10th career win in the division and his third overall win of the season. 
                  Quade blasted from his outside front row starting spot and would lead the distance taking the win by a wide margin over eventual runner up Billy Tucker. "We made some changes after the heat race and our car was much better for the feature." Quade said in victory lane. "We've been doing a lot of traveling this season and to get a win here at home is a pretty good feeling."   Jonny Oliver took third with Rich Marks and Kurt Zimmerman rounding out the top-five. 
                  Logan Roberson nailed down his 5th win of the season in the 20-lap RUSH Crate Late Model feature. Third starting Roberson snared the race lead from Ben Bowie on the 11th lap and would take the win unchallenged for his 10th career win in the class, moving him into first on the tracks all-time win chart. "This has been a dream season." Logan stated post race. "Like I've said all season, my mom and dad put everything they have in this deal and I wouldn't be here without them." Jamie Sutphin, Darren Alvey, Chuck Bowie and Mike Franklin would trail at the finish. With his 3rd place finish, Darren Alvey would claim the 2017 track championship. "I can't believe we finally got a championship in this class." a jubilant Alvey stated. "We've come close the past two years to winning this championship and I can't thank all the people enough who helped us finally get here."
