Davis Lipscombe Scores Victory Lap Pro Late Model Victory at Virginia Motor Speedway; Matt Quade Crowned 2018 Champion

Jamaica, VA – After what has been a tough season for Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA he was able to end the season on a high note with a dominating win in the Victory Lap Pro Late Model feature on Northern Neck Chevrolet championship Night. Lipscombe and Dustin Ferguson of Appomattox, VA battled side by side for much of the first 11 laps before Lipscombe muscled his way to the lead on lap 12 and then drove away for the field for the win.

“The car has been fast all year long, but the driver has not always been at his best. This win gives us a lot of confidence going into the FASTRAK World Championship weekend,” commented Lipscombe in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane.

Rounding out the top five were Corey Almond, Dustin Ferguson, Matt Quade and Brad Rigdon.

Matt Quade of Mechanicsville, MD was crowned the 2018 Victory Lap Pro Late Model Champion after wheeling his ride to a fourth place finish.

Tyler Shipp of Mechanicsville, VA took the lead on the opening lap of the Truckin Thunder Sportsman feature and went on to score his second win of the season in dominating fashion. With Shipp controlling the top spot Mark Gonzales and Matt Meads battle for the entire 30 lap feature for the runner up spot with Gonzales taking it for the final time on lap 21. Rounding out the top five were Gonzales, Meads, Tim Shelton and Joe Weiss.

Tim Shelton of Fredericksburg, VA was crowned the 2018 Truckin Thunder Sportsman Champion with his fourth place finish.

In the Budweiser Modified feature James Sparks of Hollywood, MD jumped out to the lead on the drop of the green flag and paced the field until lap 8 when he hit the front stretch wall and came to a stop with a flat left rear tire. That handed the lead over to Joey Polevoy who went on to a full straight win with Chase Butler, Lance Grady, J.D. Eversole and Ryan Toole rounding out the top five.

Division point leader Hunter McClendon of Williamsburg, VA had to park his car on lap 3 with a broken rear end and it looked as if his chances of a championship where over but his lead heading into the night was just enough to be crowned the 2018 Budweiser Modified Champion by two points over rookie Chase Butler of Mechanicsville, VA.

James Givens of Henrico, VA has been dominant all year long in the Collision One Limited Stock Car division. In tonight’s feature it took him 15 laps to works his way to the front from his eighth place starting position and take the lead from Chad Champion. Over the final 10 laps Givens had to hold off multiple challenges from Trent Clemans for the lead. Coming to the white the two were side-by-side for the lead. On the final lap Clemans car pushed in turn 2 and that was all Givens needed to record his sixth win of the season and take home the 2018 Collision One Limited Stock Car Championship. Rounding out the top five Clemans, Cory Bradley, Mark Schools and Randy Hutchens.

Domination is the Word of the Night at Virginia Motor Speedway

Jamaica, VA – Chris Arnold had different plans on Saturday morning to go racing in West Virginia but with too much of a chance of rain, and they decided to stick to their home track, Virginia Motor Speedway. The change worked out great for the 99w car after being able to take the lead on the first lap of the race.

When the green flag flew Joey Polevoy took the lead but broke coming around on the next lap putting Arnold into the lead. The second caution of the night flew just a lap later when Jeff Solinger looked to have something break in his rear slammed into Mark Schools taking them both out of the race.

A couple of other cautions wouldn’t slow Arnold down as he cruised to the checkers but behind him, Hunter McClendon had a really good run to finish in second place after passing Chase Butler late in the race.

Over in the Victory Lap Pro Late Models, the drivers started things off with a three wide battle for the lead. Mark Parks tried holding off Davis Lipscombe but had nothing for him after the first lap. Logan Roberson set the fastest time and rolled off 6th for the feature and started his climb to the front early.

Just eight laps in Roberson made it three wide down the front stretch and took over second place but by this time Lipscombe had a significant lead. Logan caught a break though when on lap-11 the caution came out while he was a straight away back from the leader.

Davis got a good jump on the single file restart and Roberson did his best to keep up with him. Logan’s best shots at the lead came with just a few laps left as the two leaders were trying to negotiate through traffic. Lipscombe held off the hard charging Roberson for a flag to flag win.
