Melvin Rush Claims First Victory In Novice Sportsman At MIR

The 15 lap Novice Sportsman feature saw a couple of early cautions come out but once the laps clicked off Thomas Jock III took the lead and put on a driving clinic as he drove away from the field. Melvin Rush was able to clear all traffic and tried his best to reel in the leader with veteran Denis Gauvreau chasing from 3rd. On lap 13 Jock's lead was washed away as the caution flew setting up a key restart for Melvin Rush.

When the green flew Jock held the lead but Melvin Rush charged to the top side and made the winning pass in turn 1. Rush would drive on to score his first ever Mohawk win over Thomas Jock III and Denis Gauvreau.
