Mayo wins his first race at Winchester Speedway
Former Urbanna resident Butch Mayo picked up his first feature win of the season on Sunday at Winchester Speedway.
Starting on the outside pole in the feature event, Mayo was able to pull out to a commanding lead in the 15-lap race. Midway through the race, a caution for a spinning car brought the field back together, and that’s when the battle started.
Billy Sonner Jr., two-time track champion and currently second in points, was able to pull to the inside of Mayo and make the pass, but Mayo fought back and was able to force his way around Sonner with 2 laps remaining to pick up the victory.
Along with the feature win, Mayo has 3 heat race wins, 6 top five finishes, and 14 top ten finishes this season at Winchester Speedway.
