Lambert claims late model 100

ANDERSON — In his seventh appearance of the year at Anderson Speedway, Noblesville driver Mark Lambert finally scored a win in the season-ending 100-lap race for the McGunegill Engine Performance Late Models.

Lambert inherited the lead on Lap 46 when leader Danny Trent got loose and spun in Turn 2, which brought out the first caution flag of the race.

Lambert survived six restarts, holding off Chris Hacker and Ronnie Rose for the victory. Lambert, the 2013 CRA Sportsman Late Model champion, has never finished outside the top five during the year at Anderson Speedway.

Pole-sitter Jeff Marcum led the first 43 laps before he was passed by Trent with an inside move coming off the fourth corner.

After working his way to the front from the third starting spot, Trent spun in Turn 2 and surrendered the lead. Trent was sent to the tail of the field twice more for making contact with other drivers but still worked his way to a runner-up finish.

Chris Hacker ran in the top five for the first 65 laps but while challenging Lambert for the lead on the back straight, spun and was relegated to the rear of the field.

At the finish, it was Lambert winning by 2.4-seconds over Trent with Steve Stacy, Hacker and Ronnie Phipps rounding out the top five.

“Finally got a win here,” Lambert said. “This track has owed us a win for about five years, we probably raced here 20 times. I was having a good race with the 24 (Hacker), but I don’t know what happened on the back straight. If I got into him, I’m sorry for that.”

Curtis Chapman capped off his championship season in the NASH FM Thunder Car Division by using a bump and run move to take the lead from Johnny Magee on Lap 53 and then pulling away to an impressive victory in the 100-lap feature.
