Partain edges Sanders for Hartwell Crate Late Model win

Adam Partain used a strong inside move on the start of Saturday night’s Crate Late Model feature at Georgia’s Hartwell Speedway, and went on to score the victory.

Polesitter Danny Sanders was looking for his second straight feature victory, and had the preferred outside starting spot when the field took the green flag.

Partain, who was second quick in qualifying, was on the inside, and was able to hold his own through turn one. His car then slid up in turn two, pressuring Sanders up into the higher line. That allowed Partain to get the lead as the pack came off of turn two and down the backstretch.

Partain spent the next 19 laps with Sanders nipping at his heels, but he was up to the challenge, as he drove to the victory. Sanders had to settle for second, followed by Cody Pritchett in third, Eric Veal in fourth and Rusty Jordan in fifth.

In other action, Crandall Turner held off Stephen Segars to record the Hobby feature win. Joe Yarbrough finished third, followed by Joe Roberts in fourth and Joe Cash in fifth.

Thomas Segars recorded his fourth straight Modified Street feature victory. Chris Cape finished second, with Richard Jones third, Johnny Pilgrim fourth and Daniel Snow fifth.

Evan Brown held Ray Foskey at bay to take the Stock V8 feature win. Stephen House, Jack Hill and Bradlee Jones rounded out the top five.

Kevin Kelly was the winner in the Stock Four feature. Jimmy Little came home in second, followed by Dustin Bales in third, Jordan Brown in fourth and Jamie Massey in fifth.

B.J. Gillespie took the victory in the Up Front feature, with Justin Sorrow in second, Jason Richey in third, North West in fourth and Ryan Carter in fifth.
