Michael Chilton Claims First-Ever Spring Nationals Series Event Victory at Ponderosa
by Chris Tilley
JUNCTION CITY, Ky. (April 29) - Michael Chilton survived rigorous driving conditions to claim his first Old Man's Garage Spring Nationals Series by Schaeffer's Oil event victory at the Ponderosa Speedway on Friday Night.
The Salvisa, Ky. native, who was a tour regular in 2013 and 2014, scored the $4,000 payday and became the 19th different winner in series history while driving the Chilton's Lawn Maintenance, Superior Drywall and Caton's Industrial Painting-sponsored Bullock Racing Engines-powered Rocket Chassis. Chilton also became the fifth different winner in six races this season.
Fast qualifier and polesitter Cody Mahoney and Michael Chilton brought the field to life to start the 40-lapper with Mahoney. Chilton held the point until Mahoney was able to slip past Chilton for the top spot. Chilton would grab the point back away from Mahoney on the 17th lap and never look back in route to the victory.
Five caution flags slowed the main event. On lap five, Chris Combs spun into the infield on the front-chute. On the lap-13 caution, James Rice slowed in turn two. Johnny Wheeler stopped on the front-stretch on the 17th lap to bring out the third yellow flag. On lap-21, Cody Mahoney stopped in turn three to bring out the next yellow and the final caution flag would wave as Tommy Bailey came to a rest at the top of turn two with a right-rear tire blown.
The Spring Nationals Series event at Florence Speedway in Union, Ky. has been rained out and will not be made up. The Series returns to action for the final three points races on May 27-29th. On May 27th the tour will race at Boyd's Speedway in Ringgold, Ga. paying $4,000-to-win, the tour rolls into Dixie (Ga.) Speedway on Saturday May 28th for another $4,000-to-win event and the final Spring Nationals Series points event will be on Sunday May 29th at Rome (Ga.) Speedway.
