Jimmy Waters’ No. 24 Late Model is taking the checkered flag.

WEST VALLEY CITY ‒ On a night when he hosted a young boy who is battling a rare genetic disorder, veteran racecar driver Jimmy Waters came away with two victories Saturday night at Rocky Mountain Raceways.

Travis Carpenter waves the checkered flag during Saturday’s RMR Oval Racing Series event.

Waters asked 9-year-old Travis Carpenter, who suffers from neurofibromatosis type 1, or simply NF1, to be his honorary crew chief for Saturday’s race.  Travis, a huge racing fan whose dream is to be a NASCAR crew chief, was only too happy to help Water’s team; and he must’ve been a good luck charm because Waters took the checkered flag in the Shoqwave Late Models competition as well as in the Maverik Modifieds race.

Waters went wire to wire in the 40-lap Modified race that proved to be one of the cleanest races this season.  There were no wrecks or slow downs of any kind, which seemed to help Waters, whose No. 24 car was on point and running smoothly.

Waters finished ahead Tyler Whetstone, who took second, and Michael Haddenham.

As for the Late Model race, Waters didn’t start on the pole, but instead took off from the No. 4 spot.  He began moving right away and soon worked his way to the lead, which is where he stayed.

Waters hit a top speed of nearly 89 miles per hour on the 3/8-mile America First Credit Union Super Oval.

Lynn Hardy took second in the Late Model competition and Eric Rhead came across third.

In other action Saturday, Adam Warner won the 10-lap Summer’s Auto Wrecking Hornets race. He crossed ahead of Jeremy White and Tyler Green.

The Mini Cup race featured 14 cars, but it was Skylar Sevey’s No. 84 car that took the checkered flag.  Kevin Neff earned second place and Levi Rider came across third.
