Deece Schwartz Becomes 1st Fourth Generation Driver To Win A Feature

History was made at the Charleston Speedway on Saturday night. Deece Schwartz won the B-Mod feature and became the first fourth generation driver to win a regularly scheduled feature event. His Great-Grandfather Jim, Grandfather Denny and Father Danny had previously won features at the track.

Nick Miller started on the pole for the feature event and jumped out to the lead. Miller led most of the way despite four caution flags bunching up the field. Schwartz started behind Miller and was in fourth place before he began his move to the front. Schwartz passed Jordan Smith and Ed Roley to move into second. On lap 18, Schwartz was able to get around Miller to win the race. Schwartz had previously won a Kid Modz feature last year at the track.

It was an all-Carmichael front row for the Modified feature as Kenny Carmichael, Jr. and Kenny Carmichael, Sr. won their respective heat races. The third heat winner Danny Schwartz battled Carmichael, Sr. for the entire race. Carmichael, Sr. led the entire way for his first feature win of the year at the Speedway.

In the Street Stock feature, Josh Griffith took the early lead. Griffith led the entire way for the win, beating Lance Evans. Griffith has won both feature events for the class this year.

The other two feature went caution free. Jesse Simmons led the whole race in winning the Factory Stock feature. The Hornet feature was won by Joshua Hawkins. It was the first career feature win at the track for Hawkins.

This Saturday night is a Factory Stock Special with $400 to win and $50 to start. Modifieds, B-Mods, Hornets, and Winged Late Models will also run.
