The night started off with a Dominant Michael Hardin in the #77 machine before problems with Mason Baileys #05 sent the field to the Alcova Mortage restart zone. From the restart Peyton sellers was able to secure the position at the point and hold off a hopeful Davey Callihan. Peyton would detail in victory lane the gratitude for his team and their ability to overcome a break issue that plagued them with problems the week prior. Brittany Hayes would be the first person in the Octane Nation community to vote correctly for Peyton Sellers to win race 1!


For the Junk Man Joey 4/6 Cyl Anycars the race started off with a 2 lap paced memorial for Driver Wayne Morgan Jr and his son Wayne Morgan III who unfortunately lost their lives back in March from an accident. Wayne was planning to pilot the 51 they had acquired in the off-season however it was instead driven by Kris Kurtz who was able to bring it home p2 behind John Andrew’s in the “Little Dawg” that stretched out its legs and a nice lead over Kris And the rest of the field. No correct winners were guess in the Octane Nation community for this race.

In the Dominion Stock race Richard Powers #57 was being chased down by Dan Rogers who was fastest in qualifying and inverted to 4th for the race when presumably something went astray in the #57 causing him to receive a nice bump from Rogers out of 4. Powers was able to hold on but Dan Rogers would go on to win. Jacob Wood 2nd and Tommy Smith 3rd put together some impressive runs as Tommy battled a loose car from a hose leak and Jacob wood was just .100 off Rogers fastest time. Jordan Smith also recorded his fastest time and brought home his car on the lead lap in P6. No one, in the Octane Nation community picked Dan Rogers to win this one!

The VA MINICUPS had their first race at Dominion under the Jabs Construction banner. 9 cars took the green flag however problems with the Tyler Warriner, Zach Sprouse and Scott Sprouse would send a few of the divisions “drivers to watch” to the rear or the infield with problems. Another Driver to watch, Nate Thomas proved to be just that as he was able to pilot his #7 to Victory lane most notably thanking his eyes in the sky for helping him navigate some of the traffic and challenges he encountered. This would be Thomas’s first victory at Dominion Raceway. Carol Tydings was the first Octane Nation member to vote Nate Thomas as the winner!

The 2nd LMSC race provided exactly what short track racing fans love, a good last lap pass for the win. After the invert from the first race, we saw Justin Martz and Logan Clark start side by side and for the majority of the Race, Martz in the 22 would be out front enjoying a comfortable lead. The field would shuffle a bit, positions 2-7 ran side by side for about 10 laps giving showcasing the surface adjustments made in the off-season paving project. With 20 Laps to go, Logan Clark turned on the heat and began to real in the 22 of Martz. By 3 to go, Clark was all over the rear bumper of Martz and on the final lap, Clark gave the ol’ bump and run sending Martz up the track just enough to slide by and park it in Victory Lane. Clark would go on to apologize to the 22 in Victory lane for the contact but insisted it was a good run with not much place else to go but for the win.

To finish off the night of racing we saw the Junk Man Joey 8cyl Anycars go at it with a wild race that featured a first timer, Makalla Dunivan moving up from the mini cups come home in 6th place. With a handful of laps to go, Chris Burruss #40 spun out in the middle of turns 3-4 causing the caution to come out and unfortunately leading to driver Brian Maxey slamming into the stalled #40 before being able to check up. This would send Maxey’s car to the inside wall were it would come to rest as safety crews would come to his aid. Maxey did make it out of the car and walking around under his own power and was evaluated further. At the Alcova Mortgage Restart, Pete Sullivan would secure position out front as a battle ensued for second, Richard Storm with a big run on the #93 of Dylan Alton into turn 1 hit the “twister” going low and spun a 360 staying green but giving up a few positions in the process. Pete Sullivan would take the checkered flag but would need the Sullivans tow truck to push him into Victory Lane stating he ran out of fuel.
