Matt Mullins Saves the Best for Last
The annual 4th of July weekend event was a show case for patience as Matt Mullins led early and gave it up to save his tires then blasted back by with a few laps to go for the win. Matt Mullins and Billy Hubbard won the heat races before it was on to the feature on a hot summer evening. Chris Humblet and Matt Mullins paced to green with Mullins out first and Humblet and Jerald Harris in tow. Mullins was smooth out front as Harris got to second and Billy Hubbard following Harris to chase down Mullins. Hubbard made it to second with Harris third as Hubbard took off like a jet after Mullins who was catching the back of the pack as the pavement laps really click off. Mullins was really smooth and straight as Hubbard showed speed but also tire smoke and at lap fifteen he found the lead as Mullins stayed on plan. Hubbard was on it lap after lap as Mullins kept him in range and as the tires were going away he pounced. Mullins really closed in with four laps to go and went to the outside with two to go and flashed by and back to the lead. Nobody would catch Mullins as he stayed strong as he flashed under the waving checkered flag. At the line it was Matt Mullins, Billy Hubbard, Jerald Harris, Chris Humblet, Aaron Leach, Mike Keeton, Daren Bolac, Chris Ware, Caleb Harris and Bill Rice. The VSS takes off a week before heading back to Shenandoah Speedway in Shenandoah, Va. on Saturday night July 16th.
