What won the race: Second-starting Bryce Davis of Hornell, N.Y., led all 25 laps of a caution-plagued event to score his first career touring victory on the RUSH Dirt Late Model Series, earning $1,200 at Freedom Motorsports Park near Buffalo, N.Y.
Quotable: “The draw was the key tonight and to stay in clean air,” stated the winner. “There was a lot of attrition so it was good to stay out of trouble up front."
Key notes: The race honored long-time driver and car owner Rob Baker, who passed away in December. ... Dick Demick posted a $74 bonus to the winner and $50 bonuses to the fourth-place and seventh-place finishers in memory of Baker's No. 74. ... Davis scored a RUSH weekly victory in the track's opener earlier this season. ... After losing a motor in hot laps, John Waters jumped in brother Dusty Waters's car; he salvaged the night with a fifth-place finish. ... Along with Dusty Waters, Jim Johnson, Michael Mitchell and Zack Carley did not start the feature. ... RUSH competitors made their lone appearance at the Delevan oval.
On the move: After being caught up in an eight-car melee on the first-lap, ninth-starting Max Blair of Centerville, Pa., pitted and rallied back from the tail to finish second.
