For Immediate Release
LAKE VIEW, SC (October 3) – Leland, NC’s Cameron Norris, IV did what no one else has done this year at Lake View Motor Speedway, beat Ron Pope in Super Street, to claim the $800 bounty that went along with it. After the race, engines were torn down in post-race inspection and, pending a fuel sample announcement, Norris’ win will be declared official.
Chris Radford claimed the pole and led every lap of the Super Street main event to apparently take the win. But Radford came up light on the scales handing the win unofficially to Norris. Pope finished second, followed by Benji Thompson, Scott Patterson, and Brandon Marshall.
Michael Butler started on the pole and led flag-to-flag for his third Crate Racin’ USA Street Stock win of the year. Fellow 3-time race winner Tom Lovett made an attempt to take the lead with two laps to go but spun in turn one. Following Butler at the finish were Mike Manes, Lovett, Michael Wells, and Joey Wilkes.
Ronnie Perritt took advantage of mechanical issues for Derek Kemper on lap seven and led the rest of the way for his first career SCDRA Sport Compact win. Tonya Jordan spun on the opening lap in turn four and ended up on the inside guardrail, but came back to finish sixth. Following Perritt at the checkered flag were Jason Brown, Joe Greene, Josh Engel, and Russell Thomas.
The new Stock V8 division made its long-awaited debut with pavement veteran Wayne Locklair taking home the win. Ed Mason was running third until a spin on lap six and contact with Sam Hardee ended his night. Rounding out the top five behind Locklair were James Smith, Hardee, Anthony Spivey, and Anthony Morris.
Lake View Motor Speedway will be back in action on Saturday night, October 17th, for the 3rd Annual Tony Williams, III Memorial featuring double-points for the Crate Racin’ USA Street Stocks, plus Late Models, 602 Modifieds, Super Street, and SCDRA Sport Compacts.
