Poole celebrates 21st Birthday and her first win in Pro Truck class

Two bike were raffled off from Flash Customer Metal Roofing of Port Charlotte and the winners Seth and Paul Scott paid it forward and gave the bikes to Logan Butrum and Nicole Fewox.

Road Warriors ran for thirty five laps and what a race the fans saw as Richard Nelson of Port Charlotte finally saw himself as the leader for all thirty five laps. There was some real “ rubbin is racin” going on but when all the smoke cleared it was Nelson that did donuts on the front stretch after crossing the line first and a hard fought charging Jason Miller second and Chris Scott third.

The last race of the night was the Pro Truck race were Ross Chastain from Alva, driver of the Melon one truck in the Camping World truck series was home for the weekend and found himself in the 41 truck for the race. Chastain dominated the lead spot while being chased by Port Charlotte’s Michael Burns and Whitney Poole was third. This race had the fans on their feet as Chastain and Burns ran nose to tail with a few cautions and restarts that put the two side by side for the restarts. Halfway on another restart Burns jumped to the lead and it was Chastain chasing running on Burns bumper while Poole battled back and fourth with the 47 of Travis Gossard for that third spot. The white was coming out when another caution was thrown before they crossed the line so it would line the cars back up and green, white, checker finish it would be. The green flew and it was on and Whitney Poole in the pink 00 who just celebrated her 21st birthday who had been fighting hard for that third spot and keeping her eyes on the flagman came out of four and some bumping and spinning went on in front of her and she was the one to cross the line first. Poole was the winner of the exciting finish of the thirty five lap feature while Michael Burns was second and Travis Gossard third, Chastain would finish eighth.
