McCall wins the Mountain Dew 200

By Mark Baute

Hudson, North Carolina (July 4, 2008) - Largest crowd of the season, largest race of the season equals one of the best races of the season. The Red Baron Race Parts Hobby Stocks started the night off with the 4 car of Brad Ballard checking out and leading his way all the way to the finish line.  Paul Wyatt and Jimmy Whisnant battled for several laps for second place.  Wyatt took second place from Whisnant on lap 8.  Ballard was disqualified for illegal parts on the car. Wyatt, Whisnant, Micky Canipe, James Flynn and Dwight Wyatt rounded out the top 5.


The Baton Tire Street Stocks slated second for the show. The street stocks inverted top six in points to start the race, hoping to put on another show like last week.  Chris Kidd spun out on lap 3 keeping the field intact at the start of the race.  Marshall Sutton held on to the lead for most of the race until Terrence Tucker caught up and made his way around Sutton to take the lead away late in the race.  Kevin Eby and Kody Townsend got into each other midway through the race and slowed both cars down. Tucker, Sutton, David Smith, Jonathon Smith and Waylon Flynn finished out the top 5.


With the threat of rain coming, the Whelen Late Models moved up in the schedule and got their show started.  Kevin Leicht won the pole with a 16.227 and rolled the dice to invert the field four cars putting local Jesse LeFevers on inside pole.


LeFevers jumped out to the early lead holding off track points leader Andy Loden and hard driving Matt McCall for the early stages of the race.  On lap 43, LeFevers had car trouble and had to pull in the pits. Andy Loden took over in the lead and battled Matt McCall for the next 57 laps until the midway break was presented. Matt McCall held the lead at midway but rolled another 4 to invert the field to restart giving RA Brown the inside pole on the restart.  Brown led every lap until the rear end came out of his car on lap 160 forcing him to go into the pits for the rest of the race.  Andy Loden, Matt McCall and Coleman Pressley battled heavily over the next 20 laps until McCall got the lead and held a strongpoint up front.  McCall pulled away on the final restart at lap 194 while Loden and Pressley battled hard for second place.  Run down of top five were: McCall, Loden, Pressley, Leicht and Lee Tissot.


The Pepsi Limited Late Model show was exciting from second place on back.  Josh Wright checked out on the field and went on to win the event.  Jason Crouse and Scott Franklin battled side by side for several laps.  Crouse edged Franklin at the end of the race for second place.  David Currier Jr finished fourth with Bill Cassavaugh finishing fifth.


Next week will have the Whelen Late Models, Pepsi Limited Late Models, Baton Tire Street Stocks, Red Baron Race Parts Hobby Stocks, Carolina Vintage and Road Rage. Gates open at 6pm, Qualifying at 7pm and Features beginning at 8pm.
