Chesterfield, VA
– In the Legends cars Tommy Jackson Jr. continues his domination at Southside Speedway. After winning the two opening races he would have to start from the rear after setting fast time and with an invert rookie Zach Lightfoot would lead the field to green. The young rookie would get a little too eager coming to the green flag and spin out. He would get sent to the end of the field and recovered nicely for a 6th place finish ahead of fellow rookie DJ Elzey. Continuing the eager theme long time legends driver Kevin Yeatts would jump almost the entire field a couple laps into the race after another car spun out. He was supposed to serve a stop and go but a quick caution saved him from going a lap down. Before the halfway point Jackson would take the lead from Matt Dail and cruise pretty easily to another win at the 3/8th mile track. Jackson leads the points early on by seven over Dail.

Daniel Silvestri qualified second but wasted no time to get out in front of the nine car field in the second Banoldero race of the season to grab the win. Cole Bruce, your pole sitter after qualifying time trials with a time of 17.022, turned over the lead to Silvestri just three laps into the feature. Michael Godby remains first in the track standings by one point. They are off next race weekend at the Toughest Short Track in the South.
