This weekend, Unity Raceway prepares for another exciting Sunday of competition. Having four different winners in four Late Model Races, with last week being a first career win in the division. Kris Matchett was victorious, picking up his first win in his second full season of Late Models. Since making the jump, he’s raced the car at Wiscassett and Speedway 95 as well as Unity, and was glad that the win came at his home track that started it all. It… was also more honorable that it came on the most competitive weekly LMS race Unity has seen in the last couple years.
Other victors this season are John Kalel, last years champion, Ben Erskine, and Nick Hinkley. Biting at their heals is Ryan Robinson though, with three, third place finishes thus far, can he make it five for five this Sunday.
Last week was Robinson’s least impressive showing though, spinning in turn four on lap two, and collecting Matchett in the matter, tearing up the entire passenger side of Matchett’s #17. After making repairs under caution in the pits, Matchett would restart the field last, and patiently climbed his way back up through the field, reeling in the big lead that Nick Hinkley had accumulated, and steadily made up ground, finishing the pass on the inside with less than five laps to go. John Kalel followed up the bottom past Hinkley, with a little help from lapped traffic, and finished runner up with Hinkley third. Matchett collected a couple more points over Kalel in the points chase, leading by only six as they go into race five.
An afternoon of family entertainment is set for this Sunday once again at Unity Raceway for just $5 ages 7 and up in the grandstands. The green flag drops at 2:30pm with 7 divisions of racing action.
