Marcum gets CRA Sportsman win

ANDERSON — Once Jeff Marcum got the lead in the CRA Late Model Sportsman feature, he pulled away to his second win of the year Saturday at Anderson Speedway.

K.C. Spillers led the first 15 laps of the 50-lap feature on Hoosier Park Racing & Casino Night at the Races. But on a restart on Lap 16, Marcum used the high line to get past Spillers for the lead.

With Spillers battling with fast-qualifier J.J. Haley, Chris Hacker, Danny Trent and Mark Lambert for the second spot, Marcum was able to open a comfortable lead.

Spillers held on for the second spot followed by Haley, Lambert and Hacker.

It was Marcum’s first feature win with the ARCA/CRA Top Speed Fabrication Sportsman Late Models and second win in three races for the McGunegill Engine Performance Late Models. For Spillers, it was the fifth time he has finished second in races at Anderson Speedway in 2013.

“It’s tough to get around on the outside on the restart,” Marcum said of his winning move. “Once we got out front in the clean air, I could pull away.”

The 50-lap feature was slowed only twice by caution flags, both times for single-car incidents.

A year ago, Jimmy Kirby won the CRA and Anderson Speedway Street Stock championships, but this year has been a different story as he recorded his first feature win of the year.

Kirby used a restart on Lap 14 to drive around the outside of Tyler Marsh on the front straight. He then survived five more restarts to record the victory.

Fast-qualifier Calvin Parham passed Dustin Burge with 17 laps remaining to claim the second position, with Burge coming home in third. Jim Crabtree Jr. recovered from a flat tire on Lap 14 to drive to a fourth-place finish, with Ricky Tharp coming home in fifth.
