Trevor Collver and his #1 Inventory Express Chevrolet had a successful opening night at Delaware Speedway Friday night.
The evening started out strong when the cars took to the track for group qualifying. Collver set fast time with a 20.275, just 0.115 of a second off his own track record that he set last year in 2018.
With the a dice inversion, Collver would start 5th and worked his way only to 4th by the time the race was coming to its conclusion when 1st and 2nd place tangled off turn 4 and moved Collver up to 2nd place for what stock car fans classify as “overtime” with a green flag, white flag, checkered flag finish. On the start, Collver was unable to overtake eventual race winner Jamie Klumper out of Mitchell ON. Trevor Collver would settle for second.
In the second of the Twin 25’s Collver would start 7th and was the excitement of the event moving up methodically each set of laps and by races end had fought his way to the second place position on the track. One late race restart set up a final chance to work his way to the front but was just unable to keep the car on the bottom of the track to make a run on eventual race winner Andrew Ferreira of Strathroy.
