Dossey scores first late model win at Anderson Speedway

Wyman repeats in Thunder Car action

ANDERSON — Jack Dossey III led the final 12 laps to record his first career victory in the McGunegill Engine Performance Late Model feature Saturday night at Anderson Speedway.

Dossey set fast time and started sixth in the feature, inheriting the lead when the front runners ran into trouble with a lapped car on Lap 23.

Wes Russell Jr. recovered from an early spin to finish second with Kent Baledge, Joe Woodring and Jon Watson rounding out the top five.

“I’m amazed right now,” Dossey said of his win in the Tim Thompson Nationwide Insurance winner’s circle. “I wanted to stay smooth and consistent. I didn’t want to give up the bottom (groove).”

Jeff Marcum started from the pole position and raced side by side with Russell for the first five laps before taking a clear lead.

Russell spun on Lap 10 which put Greg VanAlst into second followed by Billy VanMeter.

Marcum’s bad luck in 2014 continued when Thomas Huffard spun in Turn 3 on Lap 23 and collected the race leader. VanAlst’s car suffered some front-end damage but was able to continue.

It was the second consecutive race that Marcum was involved in an incident while running in the lead.

On the restart, VanAlst’s right front tire locked up entering Turn 3, and he made contact with VanMeter, who was able to continue.

Danny Trent’s bid for a fourth consecutive win went up in smoke during his heat race.

Robbie Wyman made it two consecutive wins in the NASH-FM Thunder Car division, taking the lead on Lap 15 when leader Lonny Burton spun coming off the fourth corner.

Burton led the first 14 laps before spinning.

Following Wyman to the checkers were Brian Lewis, Nick Warner, Burton and Jimmy Hawkins.

“My dad raced here many years,” Wyman said of his dad, Rob. “We’ve made some adjustments to the car.”
