Adams Is The Man At VMS


JAMAICA, Va. — On Mom’s Night at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway defending Victory Lap Late Model champion Scott Adams made sure he gave mom an early Mother’s Day present. Adams made a bold move on Tom Cohick in turn two to take over the lead.

Adams would be followed by week one winner Derick Quade and Davis Lipscombe as the trio began to pull away from the battle for fourth. Both Quade’s and Lipscombe’s night would come to an early end with mechanical failures.

With Adams in complete control the action behind him was fierce as Matt Morgan, Matt Marshall, Tim Shelton and David Williams all swapped position over the final 20 laps. Nothing was going to keep Adams from victory lane, not even a broken left rear shock mount that broke with 15 laps to go. With the left rear just about dragging the track Adams powered his way to his first win of 2011.

“I have to thank my dad and Bubba Hubbard for giving me such a great car, I’m just the guy that gets to drive it. This one is for my mom,” commented Adams in victory lane.

Following Adams to the checkers were Matt Marshall, 11th-starting David Williams, Matt Morgan and rookie Kenny Moreland.

Roger Jamerson won the sportsman feature and Brian Maxey topped the modified main event. Wesley Givens bested the stock event.
