Junior Delormier Repeats In Novice Sportsman

By Tim Baltz:

The Novice Sportsman 15 lap event saw Thomas Jock III take the lead from the pole over Melvin Rush and Junior Delormier. The driver known as "TJ3" had a fast race car but his night came to a quick end as he made contact with an infield tire at thecompletion of lap 1 breaking the front suspension on his machine. 1 lap later Kurt Russell would bring out the 2nd caution of the event as he made contact with the turn 4 wall. Once the field started to put laps on the scoreboard Junior Delormier would take command of the race over Melvin Rush, Andy Heywood, Thunder Anderson and Agwalee White. As Delormier started to stretch his lead out by the halfway point Jason McClatchie would bring out the final yellow of the event as he made contact with an infield tire. When the green flew Junior Delormier jumped out in front and would go unchallenged the rest of the way to score his 2nd straight Novice Sportsman victory over Melvin Rush, Thunder Anderson, last week's runner up Greg Henry while Andy Heywood would complete the top 5.
