UDLMCS: Traffic Management Gives Whitener North Florida Victory

LAKE CITY, Fla. - July 17. Taking advantage of lap 13 lapped traffic in what was scheduled to be a 50-lap feature event, Mark Whitener added to his points lead with the United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series (South) with Saturday's win in a curfew-shortened race in the tour's stop at North Florida Speedway.

After a field of 23 competitors completed qualifying and heat races, Jason Davis and Keith Nosbisch earned front row starts, with Nosbisch grabbing the lead. Whitener quickly moved past a fading Davis to chase Nosbisch, while Ivedent worked his way into the top five, then drove by Davi and Jordy Nipper to take over third.

While Whitener was putting the pressure on, Nosbisch lead would come under a greater threat by slower traffic. As one car failed to heed the move-over flag, Whitener took advantage, dove low on the track, and came out on to to lead

lap 14, with Lloyd following into second. Nosbisch was able to retake second from Lloyd on a lap 15 restart.

With several cautions and drivers requiring a special caution period to replace tearoffs on the very dusty track, Lloyd called it a night and pitted under one of those cautions, and Patrick Williams dropped from the top five with a broken driveshaft while Nosbisch chased Whitener in a distant second for the remainder.

Due to community-imposed time constraints, the race was to be completed in 50 laps or one hour, whichever came first, and a surprised crowd saw the checkered flag fly early as Whitener claimed the win over Nosbisch and Nipper.
