Super Late Models returned to Georgetown Speedway on Saturday for the second time this season, and Georgetown, Del.’s Ross Robinson returned to Victory Lane once again, earning $7,000 after posting the $100 JD Shuckers of Georgetown “Gambler’s Fee” pre-race.

Despite starting from the outside pole position, Robinson earned every bit of his triumph over the 21-car field.

Robinson jumped out to the early lead, while Linden, Va.’s Kyle Hardy made his way to second and began to run down Robinson in the opening 10 laps.

Hardy’s fellow Virginia native, Trevor Feathers came with Hardy to the front, as the two reeled in Robinson in lap traffic as the field neared the halfway point of the 40-lap affair.

On lap 17, Robinson found out he had company, as Hardy pulled up alongside ‘The Boss’ but got picked off by a lap car, allowing Robinson to slip away.

Feathers would slide by Hardy in lap traffic before a lap-20 yellow, setting up a classic duel between Robinson and Feathers.

From laps 20-35, Feathers stalked Robinson, looking for a mistake but never getting one. In the final five laps, Feathers turned up the pressure, showing his nose to Robinson on both the inside and outside on multiple occasions.

On the final lap, Feathers dove underneath Robinson in turn one and took the lead down the back straightaway. Feathers chose the run the ‘slider line’ in the final corner, entering on the bottom and sliding up to the top.

Robinson used outside momentum to drive underneath Feathers off the final corner and beat Feathers to the line.

Feathers came home with a runner-up finish and York, Pa.’s Rick Eckert rounded out the podium finishers. Millsboro, Del.’s Amanda Robinson returned to Super Late Model racing at Georgetown with a fourth-place finish and Hardy faded from his challenge for the lead to a fifth-place finish.

Mechanicsville, Md.’s Jamie Lathroum came home sixth and Jonestown, Pa.’s Bryan Bernheisel grabbed a seventh-place finish. Seaford, Del.’s Trevor Collins grabbed an eighth-place run with Delmar, Del.’s Kerry King coming home ninth. Camden, Del.’s David Dill rounded out the top ten.

Ringoes, N.J.’s Ryan Godown Jr. came from the 19th starting position to pick up the win in the STSS Crate 602 Sportsman 25-lap feature event.

Godown used a lap-17 restart to get around Newtown, Pa.’s Joe Toth, who was battling engine issues, to take the lead for good and get his second STSS win of the season.

Carney’s Point, N.J.’s Eric Kormann raced to a runner-up finish and ‘Sugar’ Ray Swinehart rounded out the podium finishers.

Lehighton, Pa.’s Brandon Edgar grabbed the fourth spot and Whitehouse Station, N.J.’s Sammy Martz Jr. rounded out the top five.

Joe Toth faded to 11th with his problems, but the finish was good enough to claim both the $1,500 Belmont’s Garage South Region title, and the $750 Georgetown Speedway championship as well.

Melvin Joseph claimed the dominant victory in the Little Lincoln feature over Jordan Herbert and Kirk Lawson. Joseph led all 12-laps, claiming all of the $240 in lap money posted for the event.

Jesse West got his first 12-lap Delaware Super Truck win of 2021 over Andrew Nelson and Ryan Efford.

Geoff Carey was the victor in the Delmarva Charger 12-lap feature for the first time in 2021. Carey upended Robert Paczkowski and Ashley Merritt for the win.
