Building as much as a half-track lead, John Ownbey of Cleveland, Tn., led all the way Saturday at Boyd's Speedway for the $3,000 Super Late Model victory in the 10th annual Cabin Fever event.
Putting his white # J0 sponsored "Sam's Restaurant Equipment, Frazier Property Rentals, Karsch Boutique, Orr Bros.
Construction, Powell Motorsports, Stealth Racing Carburetor, CarSmart, WP Racing Shocks, James Mowery Motorsports, and M&S Motors" Phantom Race Engines powered Longhorn racecar in Victory Lane, Ownbey thanked all his friends, family and supporters addressing a missing carburetor issue with announcer Mitch Walker.
Finishing second was Cory Hedgecock, followed by pole-sitter Michael Page. Austin Horton reared a late race caution with three laps remaining in the race, while a six-car pileup drew a red flag on the first lap.
The race was postponed a week by rain and is the track's first under new promoter Kathie Coulter, whose grandfather founded the track.
Ownbey ran second to Chattanooga's Ronnie Johnson, driving his similar, yet black # J0 racecar in the Crate Late Model race. More than 150 race cars overall entered the event.
Ownbey cited his next race should be the annual WinterFest $3,000 to-WIN SLM event at Winchester (TN) Raceway Park in two weeks.
