For Darrell Wallace, Jr., the 11th time was the charm at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The NASCAR Xfinity Series regular put on a dominating performance Sunday evening in his first time at the controls of a Super Late Model and raced to his first victory at the Tennessee raceway in the inaugural Short Track U.S. Nationals.

In other racing action on Sunday at BMS, Cole Williams took the Pro Late Model victory and Myatt Snider was the winner of the Late Model Stock 100 lap feature.

Wallace, Jr. finished in front of Super Late Model category-regulars Jake Crum and Jasper, Georgia’s Chandler Smith, who finished second and third respectively.

Pole sitter Travis Braden finished 22nd when his night ended at lap 65. Second-generation racer and son of nine-time Bristol winner Rusty Wallace, Steve Wallace started third and finished fifth. NASCAR Truck Series regular Noah Gragson, driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports, was collected in an early wreck and finished 30th.

Wallace, Jr. started sixth and quickly moved through the field. He had moved to the lead by the time the race reached the lap 51 break. In the final 49-lap segment. he led wire-to-wire and pulled away from the field at the end to take the checkered flag with a bit of distance between he and Crum.

“It’s good,” Wallace, Jr. said from victory lane. “This is the first time for me here in 11 tries. It shows my track record here. This is a really cool event. Thanks to everybody involved. Thanks to Jerry (Caldwell, executive vice president and general manager) and everybody here at Bristol. They put on a great show tonight.”

In the Pro Late Model race, two-time national champ Williams started sixth and, like Wallace, Jr., moved into the lead by the lap 51 break. Williams took advantage of an early race crash, which took out top runners Dillon Oliver and Eddie Fatscher and led to a brief skirmish in the pits where punches were thrown between members of the two teams. In the final 49 laps, Williams cruised to the victory, holding off challenges from Jon Beach and Jack Smith.

“This is freaking awesome this is definitely the biggest win in our career,” Williams said. “I knew if we could keep our nose clean we’d have a shot at it. I can’t thank everybody enough for what they do. It’s Bristol Baby!”

Snider, the son of veteran motorsports television announcer Marty Snider, started on the pole in the Late Model Stock race and stayed out front for most of the race to take the checkered flag for his career CARS Tour win.

Snider held off hard charging Jared Fryar, who moved from ninth to second, Justin Crider and Travis Swaim. Defending NASCAR Whelen All-American national champ Matt Bowling, who started on the front row, led several laps early but finished seventh.

“It’s awesome,” Snider said. “I feel like we’ve been close to a CARS Tour win for a long time. It’s been a tough road. We’ve had a lot of problems and freak accidents. What better place for that first win to come than here at Bristol. I was really impressed with Jared. I had to drive the car as hard as I could to get away from him.”

In other action on the weekend, Chuck Barnes, Jr. scored the Street Stock feature win, with Brett Hudson, Colby Lane, Jeff Lane and Josh Poore rounding out the top five.

Chad Poole was the winner in the Modified feature. Kyle Purvis finished in second, with Stephen Klinect third, William Skaggs fourth and Dave Dobbins fifth.

Bo Hoelscher took the victory in the Compacts feature. Chris Jennings came home in second, followed by Ron Masters in third, Matt Jackson in fourth and Harvey Yoder in fifth.
