Davis And Kelley Enter Bristol Tied
Davis Goes Back to Back
POWER Series Enters Second Half of Season
The POWER Series enters its second season stretch after a much needed off week last Sunday. The drivers will tackle the technical high banks of Dover International Raceway for 200 laps for the 12th race of the season tonight. The season has seen an impressive mix of winners this season with last week's winner, Saif Faries, being the 10th different winner this season. While still winless, Mike Kelley has managed to pull ahead of Corey Davis in the adjusted points standings.
Just six races remain until the series' "Earn it on Track" Championship run takes place. Under the system the series runs 17 races with 'adjusted' points with drop weeks while the final 3 races will be run with points locked in from the first 17. With no drop weeks during the last three races anything can happen to shake up the points.
Dalton Back To Victory Lane
Chad Dalton is no stranger to victory lane in the POWER Series. While only competing on a limited basis he has won 8 races in just 19 starts. He returned Sunday night to try another shot at adding his name to the list of 8 drivers who have already won this season. Kentucky winner Jeff Ward did not make Dalton's task easy by any means as he quickly claimed the pole with a blistering fast lap that had all drivers wondering how they would keep pace. Action picked up early for the second week in a row as David Boden and the adjusted points leader Corey Davis made contact on lap one. Both drivers were unable to continue due to heavy contact. The incident caused Davis to eventually drop the points lead to Mike Kelley after the race. On the restart Dalton jumped out to the lead but it was only a matter of time before Ward put the black #8 out front on lap 12. Ward dominated the middle stages of the race as green flag stops did nothing to help drivers Dalton, Kelley and Tim Johnston try to catch him. On lap 161 the caution flew for the second time and gave drivers a break from the dominance that Ward was showing. In the 156 laps since the early race restart, Ward had lapped all but 5 cars in the field. The restart on lap 166 saw Ward jump out to a big lead once again while Johnston and Dalton battled for second. It was the second of two back to back cautions on laps 177 and 188 that changed the outcome of the race. While Ward pitted for four tires, Dalton and current 3rd place driver Doug Sigmon only took 2 to lead the field to the restart and put Ward back to 3rd. While Ward was able to get around Sigmon after the start, Dalton held his ground using the high line and was able to hold off Ward for his 9th career win in the POWER Series. Ward finished 2nd while Brian Motisko, Sigmon and Dave Correia rounded out the top 5. Mike Kelley will take over the adjusted points standing by just 3 points headed into Rockingham next week.
