"Carroll Sweeps the Pair"

July 10 th , 2017

After two weeks off and a Saturday evening postponement the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series returned to action Sunday with K&N Engineering Day at the Races presented by Catawba Science Center. 

Leading off the afternoon would be the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Bojangles Late Models and the first of their Twin 40 lap features. Pole sitter Ryan Millington in the #76 would lead the field to the green flag but the #9 of Charlie Watson would use the high groove to take the early lead. Watson would hold the top spot until the #57 of Justin Carroll would move past for the lead. Carroll would hold on for the win with Watson in second and Millington finishing 3rd. Dirt competitor Ahnna Parkhurst would pilot the #23 home to a 4th place finish in her first asphalt NASCAR Whelen All American Series Bojangles Late Model race. Cole Glasson in the #5 would score another hard fought top five finish with the 5th finishing position.

Rolling off next would be the Catawba Realty & Insurance Classic Sportsmen and their 25 lap feature. Bill Lett in the #4 would start from the top spot with Eddie Gilbert in the #1 to his outside. Gilbert would take the early lead but Lett would patiently bide his time and get back to the point after a few laps. Lett would hang on to grab the win. 81 year old Bill Webb in the #16 would work his way through the field and wind up finishing 2nd. Gilbert would come home in 3rd, Larry Benz in the #95 would finish 4th, and Chris Werner in the #22 would finish out the top 5 in 5th.

The Paramount Auto Group Limited Late Models would roar to life and hit the track for 35 laps of side by side action. Jeremy Pelfrey in the #51 would start from the top spot and drive to the early lead. The battle would rage for 2nd on back as Mitch Walker in the #29, Stevie John's in the # 91, Mack Little in the #16, and Pat Rachels in the #34 all wanted the position. Pelfrey would go on to take the win and cut into the division points lead of Monty Cox in the #21. Rachels in the #34 would grab the 2nd spot with Little finishing in 3rd. Walker would finish 4th and Alex Reece in the #18 would grab the 5th spot.

Up next would be the Cosmo Motors Street Stocks for their 30 lap battle. Cody DeMarmels in the #18 would battle the #77 of Mark Whitten and the #03 of Kevin Eby early before taking the lead. DeMarmels would hold for the victory with Whitten finishing 2nd, Eby would finish 3rd, Marshall Sutton in the #64 would grab 4th, and Kyle DiVanna in the #71 would finish in 5th.

The 4-Cylinders would hit the track next for their 25 lap feature. Robert Trivette in the #11 would lead the field to the green flag after setting the fast lap in qualifying. Trivette would take the early lead with Curtis Pardue in the #17 close behind. Trivette would hold on for his first victory at America's Most Famous Short Track. Cody Combs in the #9 would finish 2nd and Brian Mundy in the #6 would finish 3rd. Rob Lewis in the #98 and Pardue would round out the top 5.

Closing out the day's racing action would be the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Bojangles Late Models for their second 40 lap feature. With the inversion from the first 40 lap race finish, Andrew Garcia in the #12 would start from the pole with the #29 of Mitch Walker to his outside. Garcia would take the early lead but see Cole Glasson in the #5 move around and to the point after several laps. Glasson's time at the front would also be short lived as the #76 of Ryan Millington would come rolling by to the top spot. Millington would do his best to maintain the lead, but the game of musical chairs at the front of the pack would continue when the winner of race #1, Justin Carroll in the #57 powering by to the front. Carroll would be the final leader of the day and grab the checkered flag, sweeping the Twin 40 lap features for the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Bojangles Late Models. Millington would hold on for 2nd while Glasson would take the 3rd finishing spot. The #9 of Charlie Watson would finish 4th and the #23 of Ahnna Parkhurst would finish 5th, giving her a pair of top 5s in her first two asphalt races.
