The largest field of Late Model Stock Cars in years was on hand Saturday for twin 50 lap races. Chad Finchum dominated both LMSC races. Finchum also drove to victory in the first Late Model race on Friday at Kingsport (TN) Speedway.

Brian Blevins rocketed his No. 97 to the lead on the first of 50 laps.

The caution waved on lap 24 for a spin in turn two. Back under green, Finchum would take the lead and dominate the remaining laps to claim the win.

Kres Vandyke started on point for the second LMSC race after the field was inverted three positions.

Brian Blevins would use the outside lane to take the lead early in the race. Debris in turn two brought out the first yellow flag on lap four.

Finchum would take his No. 19 to the lead on the restart. On lap 12, Ryan Stiltner began to gain on second-place Brian Blevins. Stiltner would clear Blevins and move into second on lap 14.

A spin in turn four on lap 45 reset the field for a four lap shootout to the checkered.

Finchum and Stiltner battled side-by-side coming to the white flag. The two would dive into turn three, but Stiltner would get loose exiting the corner, allowing Finchum to cross the line first.

Kirby Gobble continued his dominance in the Street Stock division.

Chris Tunnell led early in the race, but Gobble would power around the No. 6 and dominate the remaining laps.

Billy Duty pulled to an early lead in the Mod-4 feature. The first caution waved when the engine of the No. 00 expired in turn two, causing a lengthy delay for cleanup.

Chucky Williams took over the lead on the restart. Williams’ lead would last only for a moment when mechanical problems would force him to the pits.

Yates would inherit the lead for only a few laps until mechanical problems for him would also end his chance at the win.

Joshua Gobble took over the lead and claimed the victory for his second Mod-4 victory.

Bruce Crumbley jumped to an early lead to open the Pure-4 feature. Crumbley dominated the entire race en route to the victory. The win was Crumbley's first at LPR.


Rusty Clendenin was able to power his No. 33 to the front of the Rookie Pure-4 race to win the 15 lap feature in his first race of the year.

Duke Bare dominated the Pure Street race to claim another victory, and Emory Ratliff pulled off the win in the Iron Warrior division.
