COCHRAN, Ga. — Wil Herrington home schooled 23 other Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series competitors on Sunday night with a clean sweep of the program at his home track, Cochran Motor Speedway, driving the Poole Service Center Rocket.
Herrington led all 50 laps for a $2,500 payday, and he was also the fast qualifier for the event with a lap around Cochran Motor Speedway in 14.968 seconds.
The win was also a tribute to Herrington’s crew, who had to overcome a bad night on Saturday night. Herrington had engine issues on Saturday night, and his crew tried to install a new engine before the main event.
“I have an awesome crew, and this win wouldn’t have been possible without their hard work and dedication,” Herrington said. “They tried to get a new engine in this car last night, but he ran out of time, so my car owner David Poole let me drive his sportsman car with the 602 Engine in it. I just tried to hang on and get what I could get. Tonight, was a whole different story. The crew finished up putting the new engine in, and it was an awesome race car tonight.”
Max Blair finished second in the Murphy’s Logging Rocket and third went to Cruz Skinner in the Skinner’s Body Shop Rocket.
Saturday-night winner Cody Overton took the fourth spot in the Midstates Equipment Rocket and left with the Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series point lead.
Blake Smith finished fifth in the Heat Sync Custom Structures Rocket.
