Michael Chilton earned $3,000 at Lake Cumberland Friday.
What won the race: Passing race-long leader Victor Lee as they diced through traffic with 11 laps remaining, Michael Chilton of Salvisa, Ky., picked up a $3,000 victory at Lake Cumberland Speedway on Friday. Hall of Famer Billy Moyer finished second, while Tanner English was third. Lee faded to sixth.
Quotable: “I noticed (Victor Lee) hadn’t come off that top at all and I don’t think he knew how slick it was through that middle. I was gonna go under and at the last minute I decided to go outside of him and try to cross over and luckily that lapped car, there was enough room. It was a tight squeeze there.”
Key notes: Chilton won by 2.883 seconds and lapped up to the seventh-place car as he raced to his fourth career Iron-Man Classic victory. … He previously won the event in 2012-’13 and ’15. … It was Chilton’s fourth career Schaeffer’s Iron-Man Series victory and first since Oct. 11, 2013. … The win marked Chilton’s first career victory on the Southern Nationals Bonus Series and the MARS Racing Series victory. ... Victor Lee had a right rear tire going down on the last lap. … Jeff Watson of Campbellsville, Ky., didn’t start the main event. … The race was slowed by four cautions, including the final yellow on lap 38, setting up a two-lap shootout. … The weekend doubleheader is co-sanctioned by the Southern Nationals Bonus Series, the MARS Racing Series and the Iron-Man Series. … Series action for all three series continues tomorrow at Lake Cumberland with a $5,000-to-win event.
Winner's sponsors: Chilton drives a Rocket Chassis with a Bullock Race Engine and is sponsored by Parkview Home Center, Caton Industrial Painting, Chilton's Lawn & Maintenance, PPM Racing Products, Brucebuilt Performance and Kamikazi Web Works.
