Lathroum tried several times to get back past Shaver for the lead but each time Shaver help on to the spot and would go on to take the victory in the inaugural Summer Heat 50 and collected the $10,000 check.

“I know what the staff here at VMS is doing to get such a great track in temperatures like we had today but keep it up,” commented Shaver in victory lane.

“I really have to thank the Rumley’s they give me a great car to drive every time and Ihave to say I really love this facility,” added Shaver.
