KING CONQUERS IRONMAN SUPER LATE MODELS AT MOUNTAIN VIEW RACEWAY
SPRING CITY, TN – Chase King of Seymour, TN made history on Saturday night at Mountain View Raceway by winning the first ever Super Late Model race on the ¼-mile high-banked clay oval. King led all 40 laps for a $4,000 payday in the Stinger Race Cars Special, but the action was fast and furious behind him, as a packed house witnessed the Valvoline Ironman Series action.
Donald McIntosh of Dawsonville, GA drove the McIntosh Racing Special to a second-place finish, and Heath Hindman of Signal Mountain, TN finished third in the Hindman Racing Special. John Ownbey of Cleveland, TN picked up the Valvoline $100 Bonus for the highest finishing Steel-Head Engine with a fourth-place effort in the Orr Brothers Construction Kryptonite,
Ahnna Parkhurst of Evans, GA finished fifth in the EZ-Go Special, and Jesse Lowe of Crossville, TN took the sixth spot in the Duplissey Racing Special. Jadon Frame of Winchester, TN was seventh in the Frame Racing Special, and Barry Goodman of Spring City, TN drove the Charlie’s Used Auto Parts CVR to an eighth-place finish,
Josh Walker of Ringgold, GA finished ninth in the Walker Racing Special and Tyler Price of Greenback, TN rounded out the top ten in the Price Racing Special. In preliminary action, King was the Fast Qualifier among the 32 entrants with a lap in 11.291 Seconds.
The two ten-lap Last Chance Races were won by Joe Bray of New Tazewell, TN in the Bray Roofing Rocket and David Brannon of Elora, TN in the Brannon Racing Special. The ten-lap Non-Qualifiers Race was won by Jeremy Hicks of Cleveland, TN in the Hicks Racing Warrior.
King took the lead from the pole position at the drop of the green flag followed by Hindman, McIntosh, Frame and Ownbey. The first of three caution flags came out on lap four when Addison Cardwell of Knoxville, TN stalled on the track after cutting down a tire on the Cardwell Racing Special.
The Dixie-Style Double-File Restart had Hindman, McIntosh, Frame, Ownbey, Parkhurst, Goodman, Lowe, Walker and Ruben Mayfield of Lenoir City, TN in the RM Trucking Stinger doubled up behind King. The leader caught the cars on the tail end of the lead lap by lap 14. At the halfway point in the race, King had a one second lead on Hindman.
The deeper King got into traffic, the closer Hindman and McIntosh got to the leader. Hindman closed to within a half a second by lap 25. Hindman looked inside King to challenge for the lead in turn one on lap 27 with McIntosh riding in third right on their rear bumpers. The lapped cars went away on lap 33 when David Payne of Murphy, NC spun his Payne Racing Special in turn three to bring out caution flag number two.
The top ten for the restart was King, Hindman, McIntosh, Frame, Ownbey, Parkhurst, Lowe, Goodman, Walker and Brannon. The field went green for only one more lap when Mayfield brought out the caution flag when he hit the wall coming off the second turn. That set up a seven lap dash to the finish, and business picked up among the top ten.
Ownbey got by Frame for the fourth spot on lap 35, and McIntosh drove around the outside of Hindman for the second spot on lap 36 coming off the fourth turn. Frame faded in the closing laps, as Parkhurst got by him for fifth on lap 38, and Lowe drove past him on lap 39 for sixth. McIntosh tries to reel in King in the last five laps, but King took a .452 second margin of victory under the checkered flag.
