Just more than two weeks after spending several days in a Huntsville hospital due to a bleeding ulcer, Elora’s David Brannon was back at Winchester Speedway, where the former track champion picked up a popular win in the Super Late Model division. It was his third of the season.

Brannon overtook race leader Alan Holmes of Fayetteville on the 18th circuit and after the two made brief contact he raced away to the victory.

Jerry Ashley of Elora and Matthew Summers of Estill Springs were third and fourth, respectively. Lynchburg’s Daniel Miller rallied from 10th to salvage a top five finish. Kevin Lovvorn, Mark Fields, Shane Echols, Josh Ingleberger and Jay Scott completed the top 10.

Holmes inherited the lead from Scott, the polesitter, on lap 17 when Scott retired with mechanical problems. Scott had led from the onset.

Mark Haddon of Estill Springs bounced back from a disappointing Super Late Model showing to win the Two-barrel Late Model feature. Haddon drove around leader Jadon Frame with 12 laps remaining and led the rest of the distance. Lynchburg’s Miller grabbed his second top-five of the evening with a third-place finish. Randy Gifford was fourth and Josey Seals was fifth. Only six cars were running at the finish.

Tullahoma’s Jason James won the Modified Stock feature in front of Fayetteville’s Michael Kirby and Dewayne Hicks of Hazel Green, Ala. Lucas Stone was fourth, while Lynchburg’s Josh Bondurant picked up fifth after starting seventh.

Wayne Walls Jr. of Murfreesboro claimed the Street Stock main event, with Matthey Renner, of Belvidere second, Lynchburg’s Bondurant third and Zack Blackwell fourth.

In the Mini Stock feature it was Shelbyville’s Jackie Hentz who started from pole and won the race. Justin Sells was second, Justin Farless third and Julius Todd fourth. Matthew Jackson rounded out the top five.

Jon Taylor won the Vintage Dwarf feature over Kelley Nunley and Lynchburg’s Jennifer Deal.
