Middleburg, Florida- Mark Whitener romped to the $10,000 victory behind the wheel of the Big Frog Motorsports #58 Integra Shocks/Rocket Super Late Model in the rain-delayed, 2nd Annual Georgia Showdown at Cochran Motor Speedway.
With $10,000 on the line in the feature, Mark earned the 5th place starting spot on Saturday evening in the unsanctioned event. Charging to the lead early in the race, Whitener cruised to the 50-lap A-Main victory with Keith Edge, Bob Robertson, Cole Exum, and Steven Bloodworth rounding out the top five. The victory, which was his seventh of the season with the team, was also the richest of the year for Whitener.
On Sunday evening the National Late Model Series (NLMS) sanctioned the event. Twenty-two Late Models signed in for the $3,000-to-win event at Cochran Motor Speedway. Recording the 9th fastest time in qualifying, Whitener earned a top ten starting spot for the main event. Improving three spots, Mark Whitener recorded a 6th place finish in the 40-lapper.
“We had a great car from the drop of the green flag on Saturday night, and once out front I knew if I didn’t make any mistakes that we would get the win,” said Whitener. “On Sunday evening it was a little more difficult to navigate traffic, but it was still a good night for the team.”
