Finchum claimed both vic- tories Saturday in twin 40- lap features. , Hendersonville, NC's Thomas Beane qualified on pole for the first Wallace KIA LMSC race with a time of 16.710 and a speed of 80.790 m.p.h. The first attempt to get underway was unsuccess- ful, as Beane would get turned sideways and col- lect Jonathan Flemming and Rusty Gaspard. On the second attempt, Kres VanDyke would take the lead from Brian Blevins. ; The caution would wave on lap seven when the No. 2 of Greg. Bohannon stalled on the front straightaway. Back under green, VanDyke would regain the lead with Finchum beginning to lurk close by in second-place. On lap 16, VanDyke's machine would slow in turns one and two, with a flat tire, and force the yel- low flag to be displayed again. Working the ensuing restart, Finchum would power to the lead and never relinquish for the victory. After winning the fn'st 40-lap event, Chad Finchum was awarded the pole position and elected the outside lane to start the second race. Finchum would use the outside lane to his advan- tage and take over the lead from Brian Blevins. With only one lap in the books, the caution would wave for a spin in the first turn. With the green flag waving once again, Finchum and VanDyke would battle it out for the lead. Finchum would final- ly be able to gain enough ground on the outside to clear VanDyke on lap 10. With VanDyke now in the rearview mirror, Finchum would hit his marks and drive the No. 19 machine to his 19th win overall on the season. "We started fifth in the first race and we gained a spot on the wreck on the fn'st lap and then another when Kres (VanDyke) had a flat tire. We were really in the right place at the right time," added Finchum on winning the first race. "Between the two races, we made a few adjustments and got the weekend sweep," remarked Finchum. "Hopefully this will place us up in the (NASCAR Whelen All- American Series) national points. Having 19 whas on the season, that's phenom- enal." Finchum also increased his points lead to 32 points over second-place Ryan Stiltner heading into the final race next Saturday. Jared Broa(tbent showed dominate signs on Friday night at Kingsport (Tenn.) Speedway utatil a late-race mechanical issues halted his performance. Broadbent was clearly the car to beat once again on Saturday evening fo:r the 30-lap Street Stock feature. Broadbent took the lead on the opening lap over Rob Austin. Joey Sykes battled with Kirby G bble at li~p nine for second- place, allowing Broadbent to increase his lead. ; Broadbent would lead all. 30 laps to claim hi~ first win of the season at I-,PR. After qualifying on the pole for the 25-lap .Pure-4 race, Jason Ketron would take the lead as the green flag waved. Jason Ketron would lead for seven laps, until his father - John Ketron - would drive by for the lead. Ketron would lead the remaining laps and claim his sixth win of the season. Rusty Clendenin would take the lead on lap one of the Rookie Pure-4 race. The race would run caution free and Clendenin would capture the win over Mook Jeter and Michael Nelson. Duke Bare took the lead to open up the Pure Street/Iron Warriors race. The caution waved on lap four due to a spin in turns one and two. Back under green, Bare would again take the lead as Nasty Jones charged hard on the inside. To the lead went Jones exiting turn two on lap seven. Jones would hold off Bare for the victory.
