MIDDLETOWN — Chase Randall had himself a very profitable night Saturday at 34 Raceway.
In the season finale for 34 Raceway, Randall won the $5,000 to win30-lap feature race for the Sprint Invaders.
After a series of incidents on two starts, Paul Nienhiser took the lead. But he suffered a flat tire when he contacted the car of Chase Richards in turn one, ending the night for both drivers.
Randall took the lead on the restart with Bret Tripplett and Chris Martin in pursuit.
Randall held off Garet Williamson for the win, followed by Martin, Zach Daum and Tripplett.
“It was unfortunate what happened to Paul there,” Randall told sprintinvaders.com. “I think it would have been a good race between him and me. We were set up really good. I got to second early, and kind of just rode around to figure out where my car would work best. I found the top really good the whole way around, especially off of four. We got to lapped traffic early there. They were all over the place in front of us, we slid a car and Paul got together with the other car. That benefited us. We were able to get the lead and get out front. Clean air was very key. I’m glad to get another win here and 34, and I thank them for having us. It was a long race…nothing we could control. We finally got it going. It was a fun race after that, and I’m glad to be here.”
Williamson would go on to win the Sprint Invaders finale Sunday night at Adams County Speedway in Quincy, Illinois.
Williamson cruised to the win ahead of Daum, Nienhiser, Chris Martin and Randall. Monty Ferriera, Jamie Ball, Bret Tripplett, Colton Fisher and Cody Wehrle completed the top ten.
Cody Wehrle nailed down the driver point championship for the series. Wehrle competed with a 305 under the hood loaned from Roger Grant to maintain his title.
