Joseph Joiner Banks $27,000 in Powell Family Memorial
Joseph Joiner and Jesse Enterkin led the Hunt The Front team into the 27th annual Powell Family Memorial over the weekend at All-Tech Raceway (Ellisville, Fla.).
Seventy-three Crate Racin' USA Late Models registered for action on Friday, and Joseph set fast time in his group before winning his heat race from the pole position.
Starting on the pole of the 67-lap finale Joseph led the first 39 laps before he and Cory Hedgecock engaged in a battle for the lead over the next several laps. Kyle Bronson soon joined the battle, leading laps 57-60. Retaking the lead for good on the 61st circuit, Joseph paced the closing circuits to clinch the $27,000 victory.
His sixth win of the year came over Cory Hedgecock, Kyle Bronson, Michael Page, and Jeremy Steele.
"I don't even know how to tell you (it feels to win this race), I just hope we get to do more of these races, where we can start winning these things and getting our name in some history books here," Joiner said. "This is great, this race is awesome, the atmosphere here, all the fans and all the good race cars that showed up."
Meanwhile, Jesse Enterkin qualified fourth fastest in his group before nothing a fifth-place finish in his heat race. Slipping from the fifth-starting spot to a 10th-place finish resulted in Jesse missing the cut from the main event.
However, he did earn the 17th-starting spot for the Non-Qualifier's Race, where he advanced to a 10th-place finish.
