Chris Ware Fastest on Fast Friday Final
It’s been a few years of top finishes but no wins since 2017 it all changed last night as it was back in the winner circle for Chris Ware as he shot back to take the win on the Final Fast Friday event of the year. Heats kicked off the night with Jerald Harris and Mike Leraas taking wins before it was off to the feature. Chris Ware and Matt Mullins paced the field to green with Mullins out first up high and Ware right behind with Daren Bolac in third. Ware kept on the pressure and Mullins bobbled off turn two and Ware shot to the front bringing Jerald Harris with him on the bottom. Ware was smooth out front as Harris chased with Billy Hubbard now third and Mike Leraas fourth. Hubbard slipped and spun in turn two resetting the field and giving them a chance at Ware but off he went again with Harris still second and Leraas third. Ware started getting into the back of the field as Harris closed in and with two to go Harris was there running the low line as Ware ran the middle to high. Harris was really launching off the bottom of turn four and he was pulling up to Ware’s inside with the white flag waving but off two Ware would pull away. With the checkered flag in the air Harris was coming and got to the inside again off turn four but Ware flashed under the waving checkered flag holding off Harris buy three feet for the win. At the line it was Chris Ware, Jerald Harris, Mike Leraas, Daren Bolac, Bill Rice, Billy Hubbard, Matt Mullins, Chris Humblet, Bill Mullis, Caleb Harris and Rick Horn.
The Virginia Sprint Series takes off a week before heading back to Natural Bridge Speedway on Saturday Night August 7th.
