Ryan Millington took a new PRW Chassis to Hickory Motor Speedway on Saturday night and wasted no time putting it in victory lane in the 80-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Stock Car feature.

Gage Painter would set a torrid lap dipping into the 14-second bracket to take the pole position with Ryan Millington starting to his outside. Points leader Thomas Beane would start inside of row two and Nolan Pope to his outside.

Painter and Millington would duel door to door before Millington would nose ahead for the early lead. Beane would give chase in third with Cole Glasson moving up to fourth. Chris Hudspeth would run in fifth and get pressure for the position by Adam Lemke.

The first six cars would be nose to tail through lap 25 with the field setting a blistering pace. Lap 28 would see Hudspeth move around Glasson for fourth. Lemke would also make the move under Glasson moving to fifth on lap 31. As Hudspeth would try to reel in third place Beane, he would once again face pressure from Lemke. Lap 53 would see Lemke complete the pass for the fourth position on Hudspeth.

Glasson would face pressure from Pope for the position with Pope taking the spot on lap 62. Beane would start to close in on Painter for a second while Lemke was closing in on Beane for third.

Millington would drive on to the win. Painter would hang on to finish 2nd. Beane and Lemke would come to the Finish Line side by side with Beane nosing ahead finishing 3rd and Lemke settling for 4th. Hudspeth would round out the top five in 5th.
