MARVIN WINTERS BANKS $3,000 IN SEASON SECOND LATE MODEL WIN
July 13th, 2014
Mike Walls Posts First Ever Late Model Sportsman Triumph
HAGERSTOWN, MD. – If it wasn’t hot enough outside, Marvin Winters was really working up a sweat on Christmas in July night at Hagerstown Speedway/Dirt Capitol as he battled Roy Deese Jr. for the $3,000 Late Model win. Going inside to pass a lapped car on the front stretch, Deese’s attempt around the outside ended with a hard crash into the first turn fence. Winters continued the final 11 laps to post the win over Jason Covert by 1.38 seconds.
“That lapped traffic was a little touchy and it looks like it got Roy, that’s a shame,” Winters said. “But we had a good race going on. I think he was getting a little bit loose or mine was starting to come on. It was going to be a good race. I didn’t see him. I went below the lapped car and the next time I came around and the red was out. I didn’t see it happen.” Read more »
