Wollaber Victorious At Holland

Wollaber Victorious At Holland

Holland, NY, July 9th, 2016- In the shortest race of the season, Dave Wollaber took the win at Holland International Speedway. Wollaber began the race in 10th place, and despite the starting position, managed to pass the leaders and take home another win.

The feature went caution-free for the first time this season, despite incidents in the heats, with the most notable one involving Chad Haywood and Andy Nye. Nye and Haywood made contact in turn 3 during the second heat, sending Nye airborne and flipping. Nye escaped uninjured, but unfortunately did not partake in the feature race due to damage to his car.

Charlie DiRosa once again started the race from pole position, but Kyle Hutchinson and Shawn Nye quickly took over the top 2 spots. The two cars battled constantly for multiple laps, with Nye eventually taking the lead. His triumph was unfortunately short lived, as he pulled off of the track a few laps later due to engine trouble.

Hutchinson continued to lead the race, but the advancing Wollaber once again became a threat to win the race. As the two cars made their way to lap traffic, Wollaber managed to pass Hutchinson, leaving him behind by maneuvering through the slower cars en route to his fifth win of the season.
