Floyd County Modified driver Ervin Vance won the “Cletus Classic” at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Ohio on Saturday.

PORTSMOUTH, Ohio – Floyd County Modified driver Ervin Vance found his way to victory lane at another area track over the weekend, winning the “Cletus Classic” at Portsmouth Raceway Park on Saturday.

In addition to Vance, Delmas Conley (Late Model), John Melvin (Limited Late Model), Jason Spillman (Bomber) and Josh Francis (Legend) notched feature wins at the Ohio track.

Vance Vance jumped out front to lead the first lap of the 20-lap Portsmouth Raceway Park feature race. Jackie Boggs, a veteran driver who has been splitting his time between the Modified and Late Model classes, led laps two and three. Vance, however, retook the lead on lap four and held on the rest of the way to win. The Floyd County driver made a save early in the race after being turned toward the wall on the backstretch.

Vance, who has also competed in the Four-Cylinder and Bomber classes during his racing career, claimed his first PRP win of the season.

Shawn Holiday, Jackie Boggs, Jeremy Rayburn and Adam Jordan made up the rest of the top-five in the Portsmouth Raceway Park feature race. Adam Colley, Scott Lemaster, Jody Puckett, Jeremy Hayes and Eric Berry were the next five. Berry advanced eight positions to be named The Markwest Ranger Pipeline Hard Charger.
