June 22, race results from Duck River Speedway
>
> Corey Posey, Dwayne "Coon Dog" Waid, Chad Williams and Paul White
> all had a common denominator in last night's racing equation at Duck River
> Speedway. Each of the aforementioned chauffeurs captured their first win
> of 2002 at "The Duck".
> In Late Model action, Posey's night started on a less than
> optimistic note as the "Fayetteville Flash" could not break the 14 second
> barrier in time trials. Corey could only muster a 14.069 clocking to Jimmy
> Nowlin's quick time of 13.332. While time trials do not a feature win
> make, they can certainly enhance your win potential, however on this night
> Posey would start fifth in the main event and would have to buck the trend
> that no Saturday night feature winner this season has time trialed outside
> the 13 second bracket!
> When the main event got underway, Jay Brinkley motored out front in
> his Ricky Tucker mount and appeared to be the man, on this night.
> Meanwhile a fierce battle had broken out back in second through sixth spot
> with Nowlin, Mark Fields, Billy Harris, John David Todd and Posey in an
> exciting side by side, bumper to bumper struggle. By lap 10 Posey had
> cleared all but Mark Fields and was gaining momentum with each lap. Just
> past the half way point Brinkley slowed dramatically and pulled to the
> infield, out for the night. Just as Brinkley had blistered the field in
> the first half, Posey would drive his Barry Smartt mount by Mark Fields on
> the outside then pull away to a 10 car lengthy victory over Fields and
> June 8 winner, Billy Harris. Nowlin was fourth while Todd kept Mike Hines
> from a Top 5 finish.

> Dwayne Waid has won several times at Duck River Speedway but none in

> Waid finally crested the peak Saturday night by winning the heat
> race then leading all but laps 5 through 8 in the main event to savor that

> The open wheel feature saw Alan Holmes out front after heat winner
> Tommy Davis experienced problems with six laps remaining. Holmes had a
> hard charging Sam Range in his rear view mirror as the Mount Pleasant
> pilot had come from ninth to second and was promising to make it
> interesting when his Pepsi Machine jumped the berm on the high side, hit
> the number one turn retaining wall then flipped violently. Sam climbed
> from his racer a little groggy and needing a Mountain Dew to clear the cob
> webs but nonetheless no worse for the wear. The same could not be said for
> his open wheel machine. Can anyone play Taps for a race car? Junior
> Daniels and defending track champion Bob Jarrett followed Holmes home in
> second and third as Bryan Reed was able to muster his best finish of the
> season in fourth. The points runner-up in 2001 has really fought problem
> after problem this season but may now finally be turning the corner, so to
> speak. Heat winner Billy Harris also experienced problems and failed to
> finish.

> In Super Stock action, Donald Davis led all but the final three
> laps. Always a hard charger, Davis slipped up into the turn four wall on
> lap 13 then hobbled to a tenth place finish as Chad Williams became the
> forty sixth different feature winner this season at Duck River Speedway.
> Williams was strong all night and was pressuring Davis when the "Duck" got
