Charlie Sandercock collected a $2,000 RUSH victory Monday at Merrittville.
What won the race: Keeping the winner's hardware in his native country, Charlie Sandercock of Belleville, Ontario, parlayed a runner-up finish in the K&N Cold Air Induction Dash into his first-ever victory on the Sweeney Chevrolet RUSH Late Model Series Monday night. Sandercock won by 2.532 seconds ahead of Bryce Davis. The win was worth $2,000.
Quotable: “It was starting to get nerve-wracking there at the end,” Sandercock said. “There were a lot of heavy hitters there in the first few rows. I was hoping it would go caution-free. I didn't even know he (Davis) was there. I was just trying to maintain my groove.”
Key notes: Sandercock was the second-quick qualifier. He finished second in the evening's second heat race and then finished second in the dash to earn his starting spot on the outside front row for the main event. ... Nineteen cars finished the race, with 14 completing all 30 laps. ... Merrittville hosted the tour's second series race of the season. … Jeremy Wonderling of Wellsville, N.Y., topped Max Blair of Titusville, Pa., to win Saturday’s race at Stateline Speedway. … Monday's race marked the RUSH tour's lone foray into Canada this season. … This was the third straight year that the Sweeney Chevrolet RUSH Series has joined Merrittville’s Victoria Day celebration.
On the move: Russ King of Bristolville, Ohio, started 12th and gained eight spots to finish fourth.
Winner's sponsors: Sandercock's Rocket Chassis in sponsored by Bellevue Fabricating, Deerhaven Farm and Garden, Newnham Enterprise, Image Landscape Contracting, Excel Tower Service and Jeff Harrison Farms.
Points chase: Jeremy Wonderling of Wellsville, N.Y., led the series points entering the race, but was not in attendance.
