Coeburn, VA- It was a long wait, but for Stacy Vicars the wait ended in a bittersweet success. Vicars and the other Morgan-McClure Late Model Stock Car competitors have waited since last Saturday, May 24th to hear the results of their 100 lap race.
Vicars started his number 24 Chevrolet from the Double Kwik 2 Kwik pole position and took off to a commanding lead. The 02 Chad Harris trailed Vicars for the first half of the race before gaining the lead on a restart. Vicars maintained a strong second as Harris took the checkered flag.
Post race inspections later revealed a questionable cylinder head in the engine of the 02 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. After reviewing the part and consulting with NASCAR officials, the part was demeaned illegal, disqualifying Harris from his victory.
Vicars therefore claimed the race win with the 99 of Matt Wolfe in second. Finishing third was the 11 of Doug Price followed by the 22 of Steve Blackburn. Rounding out the top five was the 15 of Kres VanDyke.
