Why no picture of the bombers winner?

Thanks and a special kudos for adding the steps at the main grandstand. Our old worn out knees thank you too.

GREAT NIGHT! Several of the best races I’ve seen in many years. 3 wide in the late models.......WOW! Keep it up Charlie. We’ve got your back Brother.

Zachary Marks Dominates to Claim Wake County Opener

RALEIGH, NC – Zachary Marks led wire-to-wire in Friday night’s Camco Landscaping Season Opener at Wake County Speedway in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The 26-year-old from Angier, North Carolina and 2016 track champion passed pole-sitter Eric Winslow on the first lap of the 60 lap Metal Deports Late Model feature and never looked back. Behind him, a frantic battle for second took place throughout much of the race, but Marks was relieved the action was behind him.

“I’m just glad everything was behind us,” Marks said in victory lane. “It seems like every race we’ve run, something halfway through goes wrong and costs us the race but this time, something finally fell our way. We spent, from the last race last year to now, preparing the car this year and it looks like it paid off.”

Eric Winslow, making his first career Wake County Speedway start, fell back to the fourth position at one point in the race but reclaimed the second position with a brave move with around 20 laps to go. As Cory Walker and Thomas Chappell battled for the second position, Winslow drove to the inside and, with a three-wide pass, took the position and drove away.

“It just kind of fell in my lap there,” Winslow said. “I would say this was a pretty good trip for our first time to Wake County. Definitely it’s a tough track to get a hold of. It’s a fun track to drive. I’m really glad we came. Just didn’t have enough there at the end. I kind of used my stuff up trying to get back through the field, but for our first time at Wake County, I’m really happy.”
Walker and Chappell were in a perpetual state of battle for position, first for second, then for third, for much of the race. Walker ended up taking the spot while Chappell settled for fourth and Stephen Ford came home fifth.

TJ Dillon scored the victory in the Mini-Stock feature over Don Frantz and Aaron Champion. Dillon survived a late race challenge from Frantz to come away with the victory.

“We had a good car,” Dillon said. “It probably wasn’t the best in the world. Don had a good car and [Jeremy Ottaway] had a good car. We were just trying to make everything work and me and Don got together. I ain’t exactly sure what happened over there in turn one. It escalated from there. Don’t poke the old man because the old man pokes back.”

Cameron Murray scored the victory in the Bandolero division over Ethan Johnson and Kaleb Bradley, Will Bristle won in Legends over Justin Mitchell and Jason Austin, and Chad Williams scored the victory in Bombers over Steven Best and Brandon Ennis.

The next race at Wake County Speedway will be on Friday, May 11th with Late Models, Mini-Stocks, Legends, Bandoleros, Bombers and Mod-4s.

It was not really clear why TJ passed victory lane, I was just told that it was a gesture by TJ to leave victory lane open for Glen Simpkins!
