Jamie York Scores First Career Limited Late Model Win Friday Night at Southern National
Lucama, NC – Jamie York, of Reidsville, North Carolina, scored his first career Limited Late Model win Friday night at just 17-years-old in the 40-lap “Dash for Cash” feature to kick off the 2017 Thanksgiving Classic.
York set quick time earlier in the afternoon with a time of 16.038-seconds (89.787 mph), just three-hundredths of a second quicker than 2017 Shenandoah Speedway track champion, Mini Tyrell. He and Tyrell, along with Renfrow would gap themselves from the rest of the field leaving Alex Flemming to be the early entertainment after starting from the back after serving a penalty after qualifying.
However, a lap twenty-one caution would bunch the field up and almost have a major outcome of the finish. Tyrell was able to work his way under and around York to lead a handful of laps. York was just a little bit faster and would take the lead back just four laps later. Even after a late race caution bunched the field up one final time, York was able to hold off charges Tyrell and Flemming. Clay Jones would cross the start-finish line in the fourth position after starting from the rear while Renfrow would be regulated to a fifth-place finish after struggling on both restarts.
2017 Charger track champion, Jonathan Kornegay lead all 40-laps in the Charger feature over Michael Obrien, Jeremy Bohne, David Warren, Jeff Rogers, and William Haynie.
Day two of the 17th Thanksgiving Classic presented by Solid Rock Carriers gets underway on Saturday with qualifying to determine the top-12 starters in the Late Model Stock Car feature race, which headlines Sunday.
