What won the race: Making his first appearance at NAPA Wayne County Speedway, Damian Bidwell of Eldred, Pa., notched his first RUSH touring victory by passing standout Max Blair on a lap-22 restart. He earned $1,500 for the 25-lap victory. Blair, who led laps 16-22, finished second ahead of Ryan Markham, who led the first 15 laps.
Quotable: "I knew I had to get ahead of him in the first corner and I just hauled it in there and it stuck," Bidwell said. "Then I had to stay on the bottom of three and four because Max was good down there. I honestly didn't think I'd get him. It's awesome to be able to beat him. He's won races and championships everywhere. It's awesome to finally win a Tour event. I've been wanting to do this for a long time and always have had bad luck, but it finally paid off."
Key notes: Third-place Ryan Markham, a former Super Late Model champion at Wayne County, made his first RUSH start. ... The first caution appeared on the first lap for a seven-car incident that eliminated W.L. Stile. ... Josh Stoica slowed fr the lap-22 yellow. ... Fifteen drivers finished on the lead lap. ...
