(Lima, OH) Aaron Scott rode the cushion to victory in a thrilling race as the Sunoco American Late Model Series made their only appearance at Limaland Motorsports Park for 2006. Scott dueled with Wayne Chinn for 22 of the 25 lap feature and notched his first Series victory of the season.

Thirty-one late-models were pared down to the 20-car feature field through four heat races and a B-main. Heat race winners were Jerry Bowersock, Mark Frazier, Zach Carney, and Aaron Scott. The 25-lap late model A-main was an incredible race. Mark Frazier and Aaron Scott started on the front row. Scott jumped out to an early lead with Frazier applying the early pressure. Wayne Chinn completed a pass on lap six to take over the second spot. The caution flew for a spin by Blake Chinn on lap nine. On the restart, Scott moved out to a three-car length advantage but Chinn had plans on making the low-line work for his car.

While Scott rode the cushion lap after lap, Chinn patiently inched his way forward until Scott could see his nose in the corners but Scott had the momentum coming out of the turns and never relinquished the lead. A late race caution for David Hilliker gave Chinn one more chance at Scott. The fans were on their feet for the last four laps as Scott held off Chinn and took the checkered flag. In victory lane, Scott commented on the race, “It’s a great feeling to run with a group of guys this professional every week. This track was just perfect tonight. I’ll tell you what, I drove as hard as I could tonight and I’m worn out!”
