Mooresville, NC 7/28/14- Saturday night the huge crowd in attendance at Orange County Speedway saw some incredible racing as championship points leader Caleb Holman outdueled Coleman Pressley in the final twenty laps to win his second race of the season. With the win Holman extended his points lead over the competition, and gained an all-important bonus point toward his totals when the championship series begins on September 6th at Southern National.
“I sure hope all these fans enjoyed it because from my vantage point it looked pretty good,” explained an excited Caleb Holman in Edelbrock Victory Lane after the race. “There was some real good racing tonight. These guys know how to beat and bang you without spinning you out and that’s how you’re supposed to race. It’s tough to pass here because you can run side by side all the way around, but eventually I was able to get around Coleman (Pressley) there at the end. A big thanks goes out to Food Country USA and this entire Henderson Motorsports race team for their support.”
Coleman Pressley finished second keeping his average finish this season at 1.5 after winning in his only other start this season on April 5th at Hickory. South Carolina youngster Gus Dean continued to impress rounding out the podium once again. Dean has the second best average finish this season and sits fifth in the standings despite missing one event.
Holman took the lead from his second place starting position on lap one and held on to the top spot until the competition caution on lap 100 for the halfway break. The Virginia driver didn’t fare well with the series redraw of the top eight positions at the break moving his #75 ride back to sixth and handing the lead to fellow veteran Brian Keselowski as the field went back to green flag racing
