GEORGETOWN, DE (October 10, 2011) – At Georgetown Speedway’s First State Fall Brawl, Brett Ballard won the Bridgeport Modified feature. Sean Campbell captured the TSRS main event. Mike Wharton was the victor in the Crate Late Model race. The Delmarva Charger contest was taken by Matt Long. Dwayne Heck claimed the Southern Delaware Vintage Stock Car race.

After the top two runners tangled on the final lap in turn three, Brett Ballard was able to win the Bridgeport Modified feature. Chad James grabbed the lead at the start of the 25-lap affair. Coming from the eighth starting spot, Jordan Watson was quickly on the move and took over second place with three laps completed. With five tours in the books, Watson was inching closer to James with Ryan Anderson in third and Travis Hill riding in fourth. At the halfway point, the top two of James and Watson were in lap traffic with Watson glued on the bumper of the leader. After a caution period for Dan Cogdill on lap 15, James and Watson continued their battle while Brett Ballard was motoring into third. With five circuits remaining, a side-by-side tussle between the first and second place runners was developing. The final yellow flag of the event waved with three laps remaining for Ricky DiEva. On the ensuing resumption of racing, James maintained his lead with Ballard briefly taking second place from Watson. Within moments of losing the runner-up spot, Watson worked his way back to second and set his eyes on James. On the last lap, James and Watson went into the final turns next to one another. A tangle ensued on the high side of the track and the charging Ballard stayed low to avoid the incident. With the checkered flag waving, Ballard crossed the finish line in first with Ron Roberts taking second. Anderson’s consistent run resulted in a third place finish. Matt Budd worked his way to fourth while Watson regained control of his car to take fifth. Bridgeport Modified heats were won by Jordan Watson and Travis Hill.

Sean Campbell led every step of the way to rack up his first career win in the TSRS Sprint Car main event. Campbell started on the pole and survived several challenges from Bob DeVault during the race. Bobby Sandt, Jr. came on late and finished in second. DeVault held off Bruce Kindberg to claim third. With Kindberg in fourth, Steve Wilson wound up in fifth.
