Who Won At Williams Grove Speedway Last Night? [Fact Checked!]

The 2019 World Series Of Motor Racing has arrived and it couldn’t come at a better time for a NASCAR fan like yours truly. This week, I got the chance to go to a NASCAR race that I’ve always wanted to see: the World Series Of Motor Racing at Williams Grove Speedway in Pennsylvania. I chose this particular race because it’s the final event before the upcoming playoff brackets are declared. There were a lot of familiar names on the starting grid, but there were also a lot of rookies who have never been to a speedway. Let’s take a look at who won last night’s race, as well as the previous two World Series events.

Who Won Last Night’s Race?

It was an exciting night at the track! We didn’t know what to expect since this was the final event before the playoffs, but there were lots of twists and turns. For the first time since 2013, there was a drivers’ championship race for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. The race was won by Ryan Preece, driving for Bicknell Enterprises. He beat out defending champion, Chris Eggert, by about three car lengths. The two-time defending series champion posted his 11th career win and became the 38th different driver to win the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. It was a great way to end the season and I’m sure the fans are happy to see the season come to an end. This was also the first time all year that a drivers’ championship wasn’t decided by either a title clinching race or season finale. It was decided by the ‘final lap’.

The race was pretty much a three-way battle for second place. It was between Chris Eggert, Brian Bohanon, and Cole Rouse. Brian Bohanon got the best of Eggert on the final lap and took second place. It was a very good race for Bohanon, who won two races during the season. He now has four career wins at Williams Grove. Chris Eggert finished third, which was his best-ever finish at the track. He had previously led laps during the race, but couldn’t quite get the win. On behalf of the Eggert family, I’d like to personally thank all of you for your kind words and your continued support. We couldn’t have done this without you.

In Pro Racing, it was another very close fight for the lead. With just a few laps to go, the gap between first and second was just a few car lengths. On the final lap, Austin Therrien got the best of Kyle Larson and took the lead. Larson was able to hold onto second place, however, the position seemed to bother him a lot. It was a very emotional moment for him, as he was leading his first laps at a dirt track since 2015. He eventually fell to fourth, which was still impressive considering how strong he has been all season long. Austin Therrien now has five wins this season, which is the most he has ever won in a season.
