Three-State Flyers: McClellan Breaks Thunder Valley Streak, Wins Laurel Classic
 
Doug Watson
 
CENTRAL CITY, Pa. - Aug. 7. After 12 consecutive different Late Model winners at Thunder Valley, Chad McClellan broke the streak Saturday. His convincing performance, came in the annual Three State Flyer event known as the "Laurel Highlands Classic". It was McClellan's eighth career Late Model win at the track.
 
With the outsiders from the Three State series on hand, local driver McClellan proved to be the class of the field. He went from ninth to second in his heat, won the dash and started on the pole for the 35 lap feature. John Britsky got the jump on McClellan at the start but McClellan roared by on lap two. Allen Lemin got by Britsky on lap three but did not mount a challenge to the lead. Meanwhile Scott Rhodes had come from in the pack and challenged Britsky for several laps until lap 15, when Rhodes pitted with a flat tire.
 
  Lemin closed over the last 10 laps to challenge McClellan, but fell short at the line. Behind them, Britsky, Chuck Clise, Matt Parks, Brian Lessley, Tyler Hershey, Jeff Miller, Greg Fetters and Rhodes completed the top 10.
