Ross Robinson & Ryan Godown Jr. Take Victories On Camp Barnes Night At Georgetown Speedway

Story By: CHRIS MOORE / GEORGETOWN SPEEDWAY – GEORGETOWN, DE – In the first Super Late Model feature of the season at Georgetown, Georgetown native Ross Robinson claimed the emotional victory in the Camp Barnes Benefit Stock Car Race, claiming his own $5,500 victory after 25 lap.

“It feels good to be home,” proclaimed an elated Robinson in Victory Lane. “It means a lot to have the Camp Barnes race back home.”

Robinson started from the inside of the second row with Rick Eckert and Danny Snyder occupying the front row.

Danny Snyder quickly darted around Eckert on the top side to take the lead and Robinson quickly went to work on Eckert for the runner-up spot.

Robinson ducked underneath Eckert and took the second position on lap three. Mark Pettyjohn would follow Robinson, sliding Eckert back to fourth.

The race’s first yellow flag flew on lap five when Donald Lingo, who had just taken fourth from Rick Eckert, slowed to a stop after a broken driveshaft ended his night.

The restart was all Robinson needed as he used the outside groove to drive Snyder on the restart and take the lead away.

Robinson would lead by a comfortable margin for a majority of the race until Rick Eckert, who had suddenly come to life after struggling in the opening laps, was hot on Robinson’s heels for the lead.

Eckert got a nose underneath Robinson on multiple occasions, but never could gain enough momentum to get by and take the lead.

In the final two laps, Robinson used a pair of lap cars to his advantage, blocking off a passing lane for Eckert and held on for the Camp Barnes victory.

Eckert would settle for second and Trevor Collins rounded out the top three. Brian Bernheisel came home fourth after starting in 12th and Jamie Lathroum rounded out the top five.

Ryan Godown Jr. claimed his second Blue Hen Dispose-All Crate 602 Sportsman feature win of the season, leading all 20-laps for the $1,500 payday.

Scott Hitchens chased Godown Jr. to the line, settling for the runner-up finish. Logan Watt rounded out the podium cars while Dakota Kohler and Eric Kormann were the rest of the top five.

Trevor Collins claimed his first win of the season in First State Chevrolet RUSH Late Models competition. Collins drove around Nick Davis in the early going and set sail for a dominant victory.

Nick Davis would settle for second and Ben Scott rounded out the podium cars.

Kerry King was victorious in Southern Delaware Vintage Stock Car action after starting on the pole, King led all 12-laps for the victory. Michael Patchett was the winner of the Sportsman portion of the event.

Crowd favorite Kirk Lawson topped the Little Lincoln feature after a wild race that included a front row tangle. Dylan Betts and Todd Sammons were the other podium finishers.

Matthew Smith outdueled brother Robert Smith by half a car-length to win the Delaware Super Truck feature. Robert Smith came home second, and David Smith helped the Smith boys sweep the podium on Thursday night.

Joe Waters dominated the Delmarva Charger 12-lap feature after starting in sixth for his first career Camp Barnes victory. Geoff Carey, who started last, came home second and Jesse West rounded out the top three.
