Jason Trammell and crew celebrate at Tazewell Speedway.
What won the race: Inheriting the lead on lap 23 when the race-long pacesetters tangled, Jason Trammell of Knoxville, Tenn., marched on to capture his first career Schaeffer's Iron-Man Series victory Friday at Tazewell Speedway. He beat Ryan King to the finish line by 0.287 of a second to pocket $5,000.
Quotable: “I didn’t realize the top (groove) wasn’t there. It was so bottom dominant early and as soon as (Donald) McIntosh got by me I got down pretty quick and I was just riding,” Trammell said. “I felt like if I could just stay riding and stay close, I could maybe do something later in the race and buzz the top like I did last week (in a Topless Outlaws victory). They had a flat down there and (Vic Hill and Donald McIntosh) got together and you know I hate it for both of ‘em, but I’ll take it any way I can.”
Key notes: Trammell became the tour's fifth winner in as many races this season. ... Vic Hill led the race's first 23 laps while turning back challenges from Donald McIntosh before the two made contact, knocking Hill from the top spot and sending McIntosh pitside with a flat left-rear tire. ... McIntosh rebounded to finish fifth while Hill finished seventh. ... The 40-lap feature lasted 31 minutes and saw seven drivers complete the distance.
On the move: David Payne of Murphy, N.C., started 13th and finished fourth.
