Kerry Gibbon gets up to speed at Sumter Speedway.
What won the race: Sixth-starting Kerry Gibbons of Manning, S.C., won Saturday’s Blue Ridge Outlaw Late Models tour main event at Sumter Speedway. In finishing ahead of runner-up Mark Dysart, Gibbons earned $1,200 for his first series win of the season and third tour victory at Sumter.
Quotable: “I knew my luck was gonna be bad on that redraw, but I didn’t know it was gonna be that bad,” said fast qualifier Kerry Gibbons after drawing a six to start the feature. “It ended up working out.”
Key notes: Gibbons was the overall fast qualifier but started sixth after the redraw. … There was no dash. … Gibbons has a Blue Ridge Outlaw Late Models win at Sumter in each of the last three seasons. His last series win at Sumter came July 28, 2018. … Tony Ayers and Justin Mintz were involved in a hard crash. Both were reportedly OK. … After four consecutive victories by Matthew Nance of Ronda, N.C., who has won seven of 14 Blue Ridge Outlaw Late Models races this season, there have have been five different winners in five races. … The series visited Sumter Speedway for the second time this season. … Ricky Weeks of Rutherfordton, N.C., won there April 13. … Sumter Speedway is in its 63rd season. … The series returns Nov. 9.
