Mindy McCord led the final 50 laps and won the 75-lap Late Model main event Saturday night on the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series program at All American Speedway.

Ron Chunn, who won a twin Late Model feature on the previous program, led the first 25 laps before being passed by McCord, who started fifth. She topped the 11-car field and beat Chunn to the checkered flag by 1.049 seconds for her first victory this season. Chris Scribner finished third.

Two-time reigning track champion Matt Scott was the No. 1 qualifier. He was one of five cars under 14 seconds, turning a fast lap at 13.792 seconds around the one-third-mile paved oval. Shannon Mansch won the dash.

Street Stock — Jarred Beddow set the pace in qualifying at 14.945 seconds and then drove to a victory margin of .455 of a second over Kevin Owens in the 35-lap feature. Matt Camp finished third in the 18-car field.

Owens won the first heat and led the main until Beddow passed him on lap 25. Beddow also was the No. 1 qualifier in the Bomber division — for the second week in a row — at 15.767 seconds. Dave Silva won the other heat, and Byron Gonzalez won the dash.

Bomber — Chris Paulson won his second consecutive 35-lap main event.
Paulson took the lead from Richard Perez on lap seven and beat Perez to the checkered flag by .582 of a second. Erick Ray was third in the 18-car field.
