HAGERSTOWN, Md. — Tyler Emory and Garrett Walls each found themselves with late model sportsman feature wins at Hagerstown Speedway.

For Emory, it was his second career win at the Hub City oval and Walls picked up his first career win.

In the first LMS feature, Scott Palmer set the early pace over Dan Zechman before Zechman gave way to Emory just before a caution flag waved on lap six.

Palmer retained his lead from the restart for the next few laps before Emory began pressuring Palmer for the top spot. With three laps to go, Emory made his pass going into turn three, and held on to get the win.

Shawn Shoemaker finished third and transferred into the $1,000 shootout. Zechman and Jim McBee completed the top five.

Walls only led the last two corners of the last lap to claim his first win after race long leader Spike Moore began to slow over the last few of the second 15-lapper. Moore had over a straightaway lead, but it wasn’t enough to stay ahead of Walls on the final lap.

Keith Koontz locked his way into the shootout with his third-place finish after a spirited battle with Zach Kauffman. Finishing fifth in the second LMS feature was Austin Warrenfeltz.

The top three finishers from each dual set the lineup for the $1,000 to win shootout for 8 laps. The shootout was dominated by Emory over Moore, Walls, Palmer, Koontz, and Shoemaker.

Devin Brannon went back-to-back in as many weeks in winning the FASTRAK Crate Late Model feature that was an attrition filled affair.

Transtan Stoner, Tyler Bare, Chuck Bowie, and Levi Crowl completed the top five.

Jamey Swank also went back-to-back in a dominant Pure Stock win over Dillon Wilson. They were followed by Jason Stoner, Joshua Bloom, and Danny Atherton.

Kevin Boyer held off a fast charging Brady Daniels to pick up the Hobby Stock feature win behind the wheel of the same car that won in the previous week. It was Boyer’s first career Hobby Stock win.
