Meadows grabs second home-state Fastrak win
HANOVER, W.Va. (July 21) — Chris Meadows of Crab Orchard, W.Va., once again defended his home turf against the invading travelers of the Fastrak City Chevrolet Tour Saturday at Thunder Mountain Speedway, earning $3,000 for his second victory of the season on the Crate Late Model tour. | Slideshow
Meadows, the home-state driver whose previous series victory came in Fastrak’s first visit to Thunder Mountain’s 4/10-mile oval in May, started from the pole of the 50-lap event and topped third-starting Matt Long of Concord, N.C., for the victory.
Reigning series champion Brandon Umberger of Rural Retreat, Va., was third with Jordan Dill of Landrum S.C., and Chris Ferguson of Mount Holly, N.C., rounding out the top five.
Saturday's race was slated to be the second leg of a doubleheader weekend for Fastrak at Thunder Mountain but Friday's $2,000-to-win event was rained out. The Fastrak Tour returns to action July 28 with a $2,000-to-win event at Toccoa (Ga.) Speedway.
