AMP eSeries Season Three Round Four Report
The AMP eSeries saw a solid turnout of 17 drivers for the Uncle Shuck’s 150 at a virtual Bristol Motor Speedway. The race featured several cautions which mixed up the order and produced a new winner in the series.
Dion Fiallo started on pole again followed by Peter Hutchings and Michael Green. Fiallo pulled ahead by over a second before the first caution was deployed on lap eight. Fiallo pitted under caution which handed Flannery the lead.
Flannery led until the next caution on lap 35 where everyone except Bergstrom opted to stop for fresh tires. Bergstrom led the field back to green and was quickly passed by Flannery who was immediately chased down by Fiallo.
Michael Lane touched the wall and collected Green on lap 55 and everyone stopped for fresh tires again under the caution. Fiallo was chasing down Mink for the lead when he touched the wall and made slight contact with Flannery as well. Flannery was sent into a spin and collected several other cars which brought out the fourth caution of the race.
Mink kept the lead on the restart but after less than five laps of racing Mitchell, Lane, and Holden spun, bringing out another yellow flag. Fiallo and Mink continued their battle for the lead side by side as the race went back to green until Fiallo went up into Mink and collected several other cars.
Due to the number of cautions, the end of the race became determined by the time limit so Lane and Mitchell opted to stay out for the final five minutes of the race. Green overtook Mitchell at the restart and quickly hunted down Lane with his fresh tires. Mitchell spun as he dropped through the order on old tires and brought out yet another caution.
Lane managed to stay in front for the brief period of green flag running and with only one lap of green following the caution Lane won from Green and Hutchings. Fiallo finished fourth followed by Mink and Flannery.
