Coming into Saturday night’s Scott Patman Memorial at Brownstown Speedway, Josh Divine had only one career feature win to his credit at the track.
That lone win came nearly a year ago during the Jackson County Fair.
Firing from the ninth starting position in the Woolston Automotive super stocks division’s special event, Divine made quick work of the top starters as he worked his way to the front.
Jason Hehman appeared unstoppable through the course of the night, as he was overall fast qualifier, won his heat race and had an extended lead in the main event.
As the laps ticked away in the 25-lap event, Hehman’s lead grew visibly shorter as Divine found his line on the bottom of the racing surface, working his way to second place.
Divine continued his assault, surging past Hehman in the closing laps en route to the $1,000 payday.
“I didn’t know if we would have enough time to run Jason down,” Divine said. “We had a good car under us, and I just kept rolling the bottom and was able to get around him. This is awesome.”
Hehman, Tim Eddleman, Jack Frye, and Jamey Wilson rounded out the top five finishers.
Chad Stapleton took his entry to Victory Lane for the second win in a row in the P3 Graphix Indiana Pro Late Model Series after a fierce battle with Steven Godsey for the top spot.
“Me and Steven had a killer battle up front; that was a lot of fun,” Stapleton said.
Godsey, Jeremy Hines, Shelby Miles, and Marty O’Neal were the other top five finishers.
Jacoby Hines scored his second win of the season in the Print Worx UMP modifieds division by besting Earl Plessinger to the finish.
Hines came into Saturday’s event fifth in the points standings.
Tim Rivers defended the efforts of Derek Clegg and Seymour’s Jason Combs to pick up his third Pewter Hall pure stocks feature win of the season.
Rivers is the current points leader in the division.
Andy Bradley remained perfect at Brownstown after winning the MMSA Mini-Sprint feature in the traveling series’ second appearance to the facility.
Up next at Brownstown will be the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series on Saturday.
Seymour’s Jeremy Hines currently leads the point standings in the division.
Also on schedule to compete will be the Indiana Pro Late Model Series, super stocks, UMP modifieds and pure stocks.
