KINGSPORT - Knoxville’s Chad Finchum impressively captured his first NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Stock Car race during Friday’s Patirot Mining Night at the Races at Kingsport Speedway.

Finchum was fastest in qualifying at 15.099 seconds to claim the pole over Wayne Hale’s 15.106. 

After an inverted start, Finchum moved into second place on the fifth lap of the 60-lap feature race. He battled Kres VanDyke in a restart on lap 8 and by lap 15 had pulled ahead of VanDyke and began to pull away.

By the time Finchum got the white flag with one lap to go, he held a commanding 10 car-length lead.

VanDyke finished second with Hale third.
