KINGSPORT — Adam Long earned his first victory of the year in emphatic fashion on a chilly Friday night at Kingsport Speedway.

The Pounding Mill, Va., driver led flag to flag to win the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Stock race, his fourth career victory at "The Concrete Jungle."

The top four from qualifying were inverted for the start of the 60-lap event, and Long and Paul Nogradi Jr. led the 20-car field to the green flag. Long grabbed the lead on the opening lap coming off turn two and set sail from there.

Zeke Shell, Lee Tissot, Kres VanDyke and polesitter Hayden Woods rounded out the top five.

In claiming the pole position, Woods, of Piney Flats, posted a qualifying time of 15.061 seconds on the .375-mile oval, narrowly missing the track record of 15.060 set by Nogradi for the 2013 season opener.

Other winners Friday night were John Harrell (Street Stock), Keith Helton (Pure 4), Rocky Yates (Mod 4) and Brandon Byington (Rookie Pure 4).
