Michael Chilton flashes under the checkered flag to win Friday's Bluegrass Nationals opener at Richmond Raceway.
What won the race: Sliding ahead of outside front-row starter Greg Johnson on the third circuit, fast qualifier and pole-starting Michael Chilton of Salvisa, Ky., rolled to the $5,000 victory in Friday’s 40-lap Bluegrass Nationals opener at Richmond Raceway. The four-time Ultimate Heart of America Series winner finished 3.428 seconds ahead of Tanner English.
Key notes: The success marked Chilton's third Ultimate Heart of America Series victory of the season at the Kentucky oval after capturing June’s $5,000 Rowland Memorial and July’s $7,500 Butch Shay Memorial. … Chilton is now tied with Zack Dohm and Josh Rice atop the series' all-time wins list. … Tristan Chamberlain of Richmond, Ind., who entered the event one point ahead of Dustin Linville in the Ultimate Heart of America Series standings, finished sixth while Linville placed fourth after running in the position for the entire distance. Linville moved ahead of Chamberlain by a single point. … English, joining the field with the weekend's World of Outlaws Case Late Model Series doubleheader in Georgia cancelled due to wet weather, secured second from Johnson on lap 11 and maintained the spot to the checkered flag. ... Johnson settled for a third-place finish after leading laps 1-2. ... The Ultimate Heart of America Series closes its 2023 season with another $5,000-to-win show on Saturday at Richmond.
On the move: Brian Woolridge of Lawrenceburg, Ky., started 17th and finished 12th.
Winner's sponsors: Chilton’s Rocket Chassis with a Bullock Race Engine is sponsored by Caton Industrial Painting, MKC Transport, Parkview Home Center, Equiplinc Austion Group, Edgewood Homes and C&C Red-Mix.
