Benefiel Benefits To Take First Win At Five Flags


On Thursday night, the Button Box Shop Super Series took on the Five Flags Speedway for the first time since the Fall Brawl last November, in the JVM Racing 125. A total of 37 drivers would attempt to qualify for race number three, with 30 cars starting the feature event.

This handed the lead to Christian Pedersen, but just a few laps later it was Adam Benefiel who took over the lead on lap 85 and ran some of his fastest lap times in the closing laps and went on to pick up the first win of his SARA career.

Pole Award – Derek Holzhausen grabbed his 2nd pole of the season with a lap of 15.933 seconds.

Hard Chargers – Matt Eddy went from needing a provisional to qualify up to finishing in the 13th spot, while Jason Miller moved up from outside the top twenty to finish 6th, both gaining 16 spots on the night.

Biggest Loser – Joe Schaffer Jr. qualified inside the top three and ran in the top ten most of the night before getting collected in a lap 101 caution that dropped him back to finish 23rd, losing 20 spots.

Rookie of the Race – For the third straight week, the newcomers with the One Up Motorsports team have put a car in victory lane as Adam Benefiel took the victory.

Title Fight – Christian Pedersen has quietly picking up top five finishes each week so far and with a 4th place finish he takes over the points lead by 10 points heading into next week’s race at Southern National.
