Vitale rallies for win in late model main

WHITE CITY — Casey Vitale came off the pace to capture the 22-car, 30-lap late model A main event at Southern Oregon Speedway Saturday.

Vitale moved into third by the 10th lap, closed to second seven laps later and went to the front for good on the 20th lap. After a yellow flag caused by a spinout on the 23rd lap, Vitale extended his lead to the finish line. Greg Walters finished second and early leader Jason Wines took third.

In the 25-lap modified A main, Scott Lenz took advantage of leader Mark Wauge's power stall and C.J. Putnam's crash into Wauge on the final lap to take the checkered flag.

Brian Johnsen's persistence paid off in the 20-lap super 4 A main. Johnsen established a strong lead on the 17th lap and cruised to the victory. Steve Thompson and Preston Jones finished second and third respectively.

Jim Pope grabbed the lead for good from Andy Haas on the ninth and held on for the victory in the mini-stock main event.

Justin Hood out-dueled Kelly Gutches and Jerry Houck to register a victory in the dwarf car event.
