MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Story and All Photos By Race Chaser Online Senior Editor Tom Baker –
The 2015 Edition of UNOH Myrtle Beach Speedweek got underway on Friday with the running of the Southeast Limited Late Model Series Challenger division 50-lap feature. Justin Fontaine of Fletcher, N.C. started on the pole and led every lap of the event to cross the line first under the checkered flag, but was later disqualified when it was learned that he had picked up a late model division feature win earlier in the year at Kingsport Speedway in Kingsport, TN and therefore was ineligible to compete in the Challenger division, which is not for those who have previously won a NASCAR late model feature.
The win was then given to Cole Glasson, a young racer who is doing “triple duty” this weekend, competing in both the Challenger and Pro divisions of the limited late models (a series owned by Ed and Kelli Cox) as well as the Super Truck race.
Here is a look at some of the action in Friday’s feature, beginning with a hard crash by the No. 56 of Anthony Miller, who walked away unscathed after being caught up in a multi-car accident and hitting the turn three wall head on.
