Gregg Satterlee and Josh Richards battled to the end in Hagerstown Speedway’s Buchanan Auto Stores Late Model Championship Series opener on Saturday night, but it was Satterlee, of Rochester Mills, Pa., who came away with his first career Hagerstown victory.
Richards pestered Satterlee lap after lap following a Lap 13 restart that came just after he had taken the lead past the flag stand, but was set back to second with the lap not completed. Richards had a head of steam and drove under Satterlee into Turn 3 with two to go, but Satterlee cut short and dove back under to regain the spot and head to the white flag. As Richards regained his momentum, Satterlee was gone and stretched his lead to eight lengths around the final circuit.
The Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic late model sportsman also had an exciting finish. Wayne Walls Jr., of St. Thomas, Pa., held off Justin Weaver by a half-car length for his 46th career triumph and first since June 15, 2009.
In the Ernie D’s pure stocks, it was Hagerstown’s Brian Miller also in a close .75-second victory over Kevin Boyer, while Greencastle, Pa.’s Kenny Thomas made it two in a row in the D&D Auto Recycling hobby stocks as he finally got past Gary Proctor with two to go and won by three lengths.
