The Dynamic Duo Split Again

By: Kevin Piercy

Racing returned to Hickory Motor Speedway on Saturday with the Dickinson Service Center Night at the Races.

First up would see the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series Late Models hitting the track for race one of their twin 40 lap doubleheader. Setting fast time and starting from the top spot would be Josh Berry in the #88 and Sam Butler in the #81 would be to his outside. Row two would see Ryan Millington in the #15 and Conner Jones in the #14, side by side for the start. As the field took the green flag, an accordion affect would create contact between the #77 of Parker Chase and the #14 of Vince Midas. The two would make contact and send Midas spinning and coming to rest against the inside front stretch wall. Chase and Midas would both move to the pits after the incident. The complete restart would see Berry and Butler side by side in row one. Once again Berry would get a good start as Butler appeared to have a problem on the second start which again bottlenecked the cars up behind him with contact sending the 25 of Matt Piercy into the tire barrier and ending his night early. The complete restart would again see Berry and Butler up front. The third time would finally be the charm as everyone would make it safely through lap one with Berry moving to the lead. Millington would follow Berry and move around Butler for second. Mitch Walker in the #29 would move past Jones for the fourth position. The halfway point would see Berry, Millington, Butler, Walker, and Jones as the top five. Lap 25 would see Butler pull to Millington’s bumper looking for the second spot. But almost as soon as Butler would catch up to Millington, Millington would pull back away. Berry would flex his muscle and take the win. Millington would finish 2nd with Butler finishing 3rd. Walker would grab 4th and Jones would take home 5th.

Robbie Trivette would pull to the lead as Mundy would slow with mechanical issues and turn onto pit road on the backstretch.

Will Cox in the #3 and Conner Jones in the #14 would make up row two for the green flag. Barnes-Crum and Beane would duel until lap three when Barnes-Crum would nose ahead. Beane would quickly look under Barnes-Crum for the top spot and they would battle until lap 12, when Beane would nose ahead for the lead.

Jones would look to follow Beane and go side by side for second. Lap 15 would see Jones make the pass and bring Millington to third. The caution would fly on lap 17 as sparks would fly and the #88 of Josh Berry would slow on the track with a flat tire. Berry would rejoin the field at the rear. The restart would see Beane and Jones pace the field back to the green flag. Beane would move to the front and bring Millington to second. Lap 21 would see Millington pass Beane for the top spot.
