The following is an excerpt from The Portsmouth Daily Times:
Racing was intense throughout the night Saturday at Portsmouth Raceway Park. The evening was dedicated to the annual Weaver’s Gas and Oil “Bomber Shootout” and it was “Meet The Drivers Night” as well.
Winners included Kenny Christy in the Late Models, Ervin Vance in the Modifieds, Evyian Terry in the Limited Lates, and Zach Pendleton in the Bombers.
Kenny Christy was again the class of the field in the Giovanni’s Pizza Late Model Division. The Vanceburg native picked up his third feature win of the season and his second in as many weeks.
Early on in the evening it looked as if Delmas Conley might be the man to beat. The Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer set fast time, started on the pole of the feature, and led the first three laps of the A-Main. However, once Kenny Christy took the lead though in his Swartz by Boggs Chassis, no one was going to catch him.
Conley held on for second. Audie Swartz placed third posting yet another top-five finish and adding to his points lead. Nick Bocook had one of his best runs of the season finishing fourth, and Kevin Wagner rounded out the top five to remain within striking distance of Swartz in the points battle.
Placing sixth through 10th were Jarred Breeding, Robbie Lewis, Kirk Phillips, Daniel Williams, and Charlie Jude.
Presently 25 points separate Swartz and Wagner in the Wesbanco Points Standings
