Whitener wins the 23rd annual Powell Memorial, takes home $10K

06/09/2018

It was a wild night at the "Worlds Fastest Half Mile" as the Late Models took center stage for the biggest event of the year in the 23rd Annual Powell Memorial. The pits were packed full of Late Models from Florida, Alabama and Georgia, just to name a few looking to claim the prestigious event.

 

When the green flag dropped it was John Kellum leading the field to green, but it was Devin Dixon using the high side momentum to grab the early lead in his Capital Race Cars #313 as Kellum would fall back to third with "The Magic Man" Mark Whitener following Dixon to the runner up spot. Whitener, who won three Powell checks in a row before Fitzgerald knocked him off last year, looked like a man on a mission on Saturday night as he would take the race lead on lap 10 and never look back in his Barry Wright Race Cars ICON #5. John Kellum would battle back to finish runner up followed by Joe Kump, Kyle VanSickle, and Will Herrington.
