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. ...
