Williamson Gets ‘The One’ He Wanted

OSWEGO, N.Y. — Before Super DIRT Week 51 at Oswego Speedway, Mat Williamson called out one race he really wanted to win. Williamson led the first 65 laps of the feature, which saw Max McLaughlin flip on the first lap, Matt Sheppard move up to second from ninth by lap 10 and several battles within the top five in that period. However, the caution came out before the lap was completed, giving the lead back to Williamson. When Williamson found himself caught in heavy traffic, Perrego pounced and snuck around Williamson to take the lead on lap 65. Williamson was the first in, and thanks to a clever communication system he and his team came up with, they were able to plan out their adjustments before he even parked at his pit stall. Williamson passed Phelps for second two laps later, but Perrego was already a straightaway ahead. Perrego ran high, while Williamson stayed low and experimented with the middle lane. On lap 134, Williamson’s persistence finally paid off as he was able to dive under Perrego going into turn one and drive away with the lead off turn two. While it brought Perrego back to Williamson’ bumper, the final two laps were smooth sailing for the No.
