Chad Finley Get Hot at Owosso!

Chad Finley was smoking hot on Saturday Night as he set fast time during qualifying and then led the last 5 laps of the Affordable Tire & Service Center Pro Late Model 30 Lap Feature Event! It was a great battle for the lead as Adam Rowe led the first couple of laps before Jimmy O Smith took the point. Tim Felver was coming fast through the field and on Lap #8 he became the 3rd leader of the race. Felver appeared to have the car to beat until Lap #14 when the second caution flew. Finley had made his way up into the second position and so he was given the bottom groove when Felver made his choice for the top lane with the Owosso Option. Felver and Finley raced side-by-side for two more laps before the final caution came out on Lap #17. Again, Felver took the top for the restart and set the stage for the final push to the checkered flag. It took Finley 8 laps with what appeared to be a broken race car to get around Tim Felver. The right front of the #42 was producing sparks each time that he went into the corner and it appeared as if he had a tire going down. Russ Cords, Jimmy O Smith and Vinnie Miller took advantage of the hard racing by the two leaders and kept the pack tight. On the final lap, Cords was able to nip Felver at the line for the second position. Felver finished 3rd and Jimmy O Smith and Vinnie Miller finished 4th and 5th. Chad Finley scored his First Pro Late Model Feature Win at Owosso Speedway. Tim Felver and Jimmy O Smith won the Heat races.
