But over his eight-year career, a win at Silver Spring had eluded him, until now. Wilbur, of Mechanicsburg, held off point leader Carmen Perigo Jr. in heavy lapped traffic over the final seven laps to win the 30-lap sportsman championship Saturday night at Silver Spring Speedway. Defending limited late model track champion Jason Covert of Middletown took the lead on lap 15 and then drove away from the field to record his third win of the season. George Eash picked up his first win of the year in street stock action.
