South Boston, VA - Fifteen-year-old Cole Timm of Mooresville, North Carolina wrestled the lead from veteran Preston Peltier of Concord, North Carolina with one lap to go and held off Peltier to win Saturday night’s PASS Super Late Model 150 at South Boston Speedway.
The win was Timm’s first career victory on the PASS (Pro All Stars Series) circuit.
Timm took the lead from 13-year-old Harrison Burton, the son of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Jeff Burton, on lap 114 following the race’s first caution, and was in front when the race’s second and final caution came out on lap 146 due to a spin by Tyler Church in the fourth turn.
Peltier grabbed the lead from Timm on the ensuing double-file restart, but Timm rallied back, forged ahead of Peltier on the outside and edged Peltier by .205-second at the finish.
Trevor Noles of Charlotte, North Carolina finished third with Burton finishing fourth and Jared Fryar of Trinity, North Carolina rounding out the top five finishers.
Tate Fogleman of Durham, North Carolina, Church, of Hickory, North Carolina, Trey Jarrell of Kannapolis, North Carolina, Jared Irvan of Midland, North Carolina and Brandon Setzer of Newton, N.C. completed the top 10 finishers.
There were four lead changes among four drivers, with Burton leading 65 laps, the most of any driver. Timm led twice for a total of 35 laps.
Timm averaged 73.698 mph in the 150-lap race that took 48 minutes and 51 seconds to complete.
