In what was the first 2014 appearance for both drivers, Terry Dease and Justin Snow scored victories in twin 40-lappers for Late Model stocks during the Chad Pergerson/Kevin Bowen Memorial night at Orange County Speedway.
Saturday’s races were the first in almost a month at the three-eighths mile track after a series of rainouts.
Dease outran Mike Chambers and Chuck Lawson to take race No. 1 and reflected on his triumph in victory lane.
“This is home,” he stated. “I’ve been trying some other places during the season and haven’t been able to get over here, but this is my home track and always has been.”
Never miss a local story.
After hitting the third turn wall and retiring from race one, Snow took race two for his first ever Late Model win at the track. Mike Chambers and Chris Denny completed the podium.
“This is a special win for me,’’ Snow said. “I won the Rodney Cook Memorial earlier this year (at Altamahaw Speedway), and Rodney was a good friend. I feel like Chad and Kevin were good friends, too.”
Chuck Lawson and Dennis Sargent Jr. split the victories in twin 20s for Limited Sportsman cars.
