Quade’s Winning Drive Secures Potomac Championship

Alvey Pads Point Lead in RUSH Crates

By Doug Watson

Budds Creek, MD- Derick Quade capped of his tremendous 2019 campaign as he took his 6th win of the season and secured the Limited Late Model track title in the process.

The win for Quade, steering his potent Black Diamond no.74, would be his 19th career division feature win and his second career class championship with his first coming way back in 2007.

Quade launched from his second starting spot into the race lead and would pace all 20-circuits uncontested for his 11th overall win of the season. “This has no doubt been a dream season for us.” Quade stated in victory lane.

“This team has worked so hard this season and I wouldn’t have been able to do this without them.” Tyler Emory came home second with Brandon Long, Billy Tucker and Scott Wilson completing the top-five.

Current point leader Darren Alvey drove to his 4th win of the season in the companion 20-lap RUSH Crate Late Model main. Alvey, who lined up second for the start, took the lead on lap one and would hold off a late race surge from eventual runner-up Dale Hollidge to collect his 11th career division feature win. “We had a great car tonight and it’s awesome to get this team another win.” Said Alvey. “I saw when Dale got into second he’s give us a run, but I knew if I just kept the car straight we’d be alright, and we were able to get it done tonight.” Chuck Bowie, Jeremy Pilkerton and Jonathan Raley trailed at the finish.

In support class action, PJ Hatcher drove to his 2nd win of the season in the 16-lap Street Stock feature, Colin Long collected his 3rd of the season in the 15-lap Hobby Stock main, rookie Justin Knight tallied his 4th U-Car win with Ed Pope Sr. and John Hardesty splitting the two 15-lap Strictly Stock features.
