PORTSMOUTH, Ohio – Floyd County driver Ervin Vance drove to a win in the R.W. Rental and Supply Modified A-Main at Portsmouth Raceway Park (PRP) on Sunday.
Vance dominated the feature race. The 29-year-old started the evening setting quick time, but he began his day changing a motor in the car.
Vance was the fast qualifier Saturday and Sunday. However, engine problems discovered directly after Saturday’s time trials sidelined him for the rest of that evening. He and his crew spent the day Sunday putting a new power plant under the hood of the P20 and their efforts paid off on Sunday night.
Veteran driver Jackie Boggs won the Fifth Annual Boone Coleman Memorial “Gator 50” at Portsmouth Raceway Park on Sunday.
Another Floyd County driver, Shannon Thornsberry, finished third behind second-place Rod Conley and Boggs in the Late Model A-Main.
