Anthony White took the first to take the checkers in winning the 2nd annual Dylan Kennedy Memorial at Wartburg Speedway on Saturday night. White also won last year’s event.
White topped 29 limited late models in time trials. He also won the dash race to earn the pole for the main event.
White shot from the pole position to take the lead of the 37-lap race as the field took the green. White did receive some early pressure from Eddie King Jr. as the leaders navigated through slower traffic.
The key moment of the race was when White tangled with the slower car of Eric Weber on lap 13. Both cars spun and White was deemed to still be the race leader by the race director despite both cars coming to a stop on the track. When the race resumed, White went on to cruise to the win. The lap 13 caution was the only caution of the race.
White’s win was worth $3,700 plus additional bonus money from being the fastest qualifier and winning the fast car dash.
Mike Weeks and Chip Brindle were heat race winners.
The race paid tribute to the late Dylan Kennedy, brother of late model driver Drew Kennedy. The Kennedy family is involved in putting on this event at Wartburg Speedway.
