LONDON, Ontario — Running up front at Delaware Speedway on Saturday, Rick Spencer-Walt would get crashed out of the event in the final laps.
Spencer-Walt showed speed from the beginning of the afternoon, laying down a lap of 18.232 seconds to place him third on the board after qualifying.
Following the invert, though, he would start the 100-lap feature from the fourth position, jumping into third on the initial green flag. Despite falling back to fourth on the Lap 6 restart, he was able to battle back and retake third on the following restart with 32 laps on the board. He’d remain there until fading back to fourth once again at the halfway mark, though kept battling hard to retake the position once again. He’d remain in the third position until the caution came out with eight laps to go.
Battling for the win on the final lap following the restart, the pair in front of him would make contact, followed by contact with him, and hitting the inside frontstretch wall at Delaware. He was credited with a 19th-place finish.
So far this year, he has only scored two finishes outside of the top-five this season in six races. He currently sits sixth in the APC Auto Parts United Late Model Series standings, 32 points behind the points leader.
The fifth race of the APC Series schedule is set to take place at Flamboro Speedway on July 16.
