Local auto racing

Watson, Pettyjohn keep winning: Jordan Watson blistered the field from his sixth-place starting position to earn his eighth win of the season at Delaware International Speedway in the Big Block Modified feature.

“I cannot say more about this team we put together,” said Watson. “We are gelling and it is obvious. I have dreamed of having a season like this. So now that all the pieces are fitting together, we are going to enjoy it.”

After two quick cautions, a third attempt at completing a single lap saw Watson stick to the bottom of the speedway and launch from sixth to first throughout the circuit.  Once out front, Watson stayed there.

Mark Pettyjohn made it to the checkered flag in the nick of time, as the left rear tire was flat as he pulled the classic “8 Ball” to victory lane in the Super Late Model feature event.

There will be one event remaining to crown the points champion, in an epic battle of Millsboro natives, Donald Lingo, Jr. and Amanda Whaley, whose shops are a few short miles of each other.

Matt Hill added another victory to his resume in the RUSH Late Model feature event, earning win No. 9 at Delaware International for the season.

Veteran Mike White overtook Scott Hitchen to collect a win in the Crate Modified feature event. It appeared that Hitchens would continue his domination, taking the lead on lap one.

But White stayed door to door with Hitchens, ultimately taking the lead on lap 13.

Tim White captured the 15-lap Modified Lite feature event.

The final points event will be this upcoming Saturday night, celebrating the champions of 2019.
