What won the race: Tenth-starting Ron Parker of Lawndale, N.C., won a tight late-race battle with hometown driver Brandon Umberger for a $3,000 victory in the second leg of Fastrak's Triple Crown weekend. Parker overtook Umberger on the 32nd lap and survived a lap-38 red flag for Umberger to score his first Fastrak triumph since 2009.
Key notes: Parker became the fifth different Fastrak winner this season. ... Third-place finisher Kenny Peeples led laps 1-13, while Umberger held the point from laps 14-31. ... Umberger's night ended with a barrel roll on lap-38 after he made contact attempting to lap the car of Tam Topham while racing Parker for the lead; he walked away from the incident unharmed. ... The race was plagued by several early cautions. ... Kennie Compton Jr., Friday's Fastrak winner at Beckley, W.Va., retired after seven laps. ... Wythe hosted the second of three Memorial Day events for the Fastrak Racing Series. ... In total, over $40,000 in purse money is up for grabs in the 10th annual Triple Crown weekend. ... The tour wraps up its tripleheader Sunday at Princeton (W.Va.) Speedway. ... Sports Media Net is offering pay-per-view coverage of the event.
On the move: The winner charged from the 10th starting position.
