Parker wins first raceOn Aug 5, 2013
“It’s not the way I wanted to win my first feature,” Joey Parker told track announcer Kyle Coppola in his victory interview at the stripe following his lap with the checkered flag in hand. “But I guess I’ll take it.” He had stubbornly pursued Nick Lascoula after leading the first eight circuits in a race that ran caution free for the full 25 laps. At the checkers, Lascoula had led Parker over the line one car ahead. But he had been called for a bad start and track officials penalized Lascoula a single place in the finishing stats, elevating Parker to Victory Lane following the fierce battle. Al Wisialko, Brandon Martinez and Matthew Carpenter completed the top five.
