Jim Morris Takes Second Win on Final Thursday Night
Barre’s own Jim “Boomer” Morris claimed his second feature win of the season in dominant fashion during the final Thursday (August 28) night of the 2014 season presented by Aubuchon Hardware. Morris held off a late charge by Jason Allen for the 50-lap win.
Morris started on the pole of the 26 car Late Model field and built a lead early in the race before Allen broke away from the pack and began to chase him down. With just under two laps to go, Allen reached Morris’ bumper but couldn’t get by. Current point leader Derrick O’Donnell recovered from an accident in the consolation event to start 14th on the field and worked his way to third. It was O’Donnell’s sixth straight podium finish.
