Mulkern Racing Driver Capitalizes On Late Restart For First Win Of ’13

SCARBOROUGH, Maine – Bobby Timmons III of Windham, Maine, won the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series main event at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, Maine, on Saturday, August 17, using a late-race restart to score his first 40-lap Pro Series feature win of the season.

The victory was the second of his career for Timmons at Beech Ridge.

“The last four or five weeks have been so up and down and rough for us. I’m glad we finally figured out the Hoosier tire,” Timmons said. “The car wasn’t really that great tonight, but I think with the ACT (Late Model Tour) rubber on the track, it wasn’t about who was the best. It was who was the least worst.”

Timmons started in the top half of the field and rode inside the Top-3 for the first 30 laps of the event as the race went caution-free until Lap 35. Race leader Tyler King brought out the only yellow flag of the night when his engine expired, setting up Timmons on the inside of the front row for the ensuing restart.

The Mulkern Racing No. 48 Southern Maine Chrysler Dodge Jeep/Timmons Machine Dodge scooted straight out to the lead and never looked back.

“I think I got the restart of my life there,” Timmons said. “I got to third, and the (leaders) were gone. I said, ‘Well, with the last couple of weeks, I’ll take third.’ I look and I see (King) blowing up.
“I’ve been racing go-karts and Legends with Evan (Beaulieu) for a long time, so it was really cool to race with him for the win.”
With the win, Timmons inched closer to the Top-3 in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series point standings with just two races remaining in the season.
