White And Mitchell Are Back-To-Back Winners

ROSEVILLE, Calif. — Brandon White scored another narrow Foothills Tow Modified win while Kenna Mitchell won in the NASCAR Berco Redwood Late Models during the Summer Classic MartinoWest Night at All American Speedway.

White’s margin of victory in Saturday’s 30-lap modified feature was .068 seconds. His last triumph on July 9 was won with a .034 gap over second place.

Jon Yourd led the modifieds to green before the race was slowed by Sammy Nuno stalling on the off ramp.

Josh Blackwood seized the lead on the restart and Yourd drifted back to seventh. White drove to the inside of Rick Andersen, but the pair collided, sending Andersen for a spin and a caution on lap 14.

Andersen was relegated to restarting at the back of the field.

White then drove around the outside of Blackwood to lead lap 15. Cody Bailey spun in a chain reaction incident in turn four for the next caution. White restarted inside Blackwood and fended off a brief challenge, while Tyler Wentworth took over second from Blackwood on lap 22.

A caution for Yourd spinning on lap 26 set up the thrilling conclusion.

Wentworth edged forward on the outside of White to lead lap 27, before White cleared him on lap 28. Wentworth executed a cross over on the backstretch to storm inside White in turn three.

White held the lead at the line on lap 29 and won the side-by-side challenge for the narrow win. Blackwood, Andersen, and tenth starting Cody Rickard were the top-five finishers.

In the NASCAR Berco Redwood Late Model feature, Mitchell pulled off her second consecutive series victory after winning her first career race earlier this month.

Pro Late Model rookie Kris Price held the top position while sixth starting Mitchell and seventh starting Dylan Zampa — series points leader — moved forward. Zampa and Kylie Daniels collided for a caution flag on lap five.

Mitchell and Zampa worked past Eric Price, Jr. on lap 25 to take second and third respectively. Price then slowed from the lead, requiring a caution flag and handing the lead to Mitchell.

Mitchell drove ahead on the restart, while Zampa and Price crashed in second, ending Zampa’s bid for the win. Mitchell led over the final restart to top Aidan Daniels, Lane Anderson, Price and Daniels.

Zampa answered back by winning his ninth feature of the year in the second 35-lap feature.

He took the lead from Daniels on lap three and never surrendered it. Daniels finished second ahead of Anderson, Mitchell and Aidan.
