Mason Bailey Dominates Southside Speedway J.M. Wilkinson Opening Night; Snaping Chris Dodson’s Six Race Win Streak

Midlothian, Virginia– You could have not asked for better weather yesterday just south of the state capital. Light cloud cover, a nice low breeze and about 70 degrees all day long. Something Southside Speedway was probably owed after dealing with the amount of “The R Word” that came through the state last year. Fans and drivers alike packed the pits and the grandstands to make Opening Night 2019 one for the record books.

Mason Bailey was the fastest man in town in both divisions he raced in last night during the final round of practice, and for those who might not know Southside Speedway uses their final practice round as a form of group qualifying known as “Practifying.” It took Bailey just seven laps to lay down a 14.816 and take the pole position away from 2018 Rookie of the Year, John Goin. Chris Dodson, Howie Disavino, and Bugs Hairfield rounded out the fastest five qualifiers. Only the top two were inverted.

Starting the 40-lap feature on the outside front row was no problem for the young Chesterfield native. He was able to take the lead early from Goin, just before problems arose in turn three involving Howie DiSavino and Chris Johnson. Both cars ended up with some front end damage, however, DiSavino was the only one that did not return to the race. The caution set up the night’s first cone restart where Bailey elected to stay on the bottom, Goin took the chance to go topside but had some issues, and pardon the pun, getting ‘goin.’ Somehow he only fell back to fourth.

That allowed Bailey a clean shot in and out of two, which allowed him to open up a decent amount of space between himself and the rest of the field. Building almost a full second lead over the rest of the field allowing them to battle things out while he drove away. The second official caution of the evening came when Eddie Johnson and Justin Martz make contact, and by contact I mean Martz goes up and over the left front fender of Johnson. Just before that on the other end of the track, however, John Goin was able to get around Hairfield for second, setting up another great restart between two young drivers, so we thought!

Once the green was displayed things went downhill quick for Goin. Both he and Bailey spun their tires, which stakes up the field behind them. However, Goin got the worst end of the deal because he also had a left front tire go down. Once the carnage was cleared Cameron Jarrel found himself facing the wrong direction. Luckily for everyone involved, no one received any serious damage. Bailey once again elected to take the bottom on the ensuing restart but it was called off after race control deemed Hairfield jumped the start.

Once we finally got going again Bailey did a phenomenal job clearing the field and leaving the veterans to battle things out. Dodson was able to clear Hairfield for second but by the time he got some open track to work with, Bailey was long gone and collecting his second checkered flag of the evening and snapping one of, if not the longest, winning streaks in Southside history. Dodson, who had won the previous six J.M. Wilkinson Opening Night’s finished second, Bugs Hairfield, Michael Sutphin, and John Goin rounded out the top five finishers.

Ethan Ayers Wins UCAR Opener; Proves Yet Again to be the Division of Excitement

Beejay Anderson was the quickest of thirteen cars during practifying clocking in at 16.553 (72.487 MPH). However, the invert was not on his side once he pulled a six out of the cooler, handing the front row to Ronnie Vance and Joshua Thomas.

Vance again used the invert to his advantage and took off running when the green flag was displayed. Behind him was a completely different story, I am not sure if hornets nest is the right description because they took it three wide early, which cause some contact and damage. Ryan Paul’s No. 5 car probably took the worst of it after getting hit in the back and taking what looked like the front bumper cover of Brookfield with him. Somehow we remained green.

While all that was going on around mid back, Ethan Ayers was on the hunt for the lead. He was able to close the gap and make the pass just past the halfway point of the feature. Ayers had to hold off the rest of the field for a handful of restarts with less than ten laps to go but, he was able to do so and take home the victory

Chris Dodson Late Race Pass Earns Himself the Win and his Ninth Late Model Series Championship

Midlothian, VA – Within the last 48-hours everyone here in the Mid-Atlantic area have had their eye on the weather. To be honest with you, Mother Nature has reared her ugly head plenty of time this season.

She tired to put a damper on this evenings championship evening, however, Southside was not going to be denied even after heavy rains rolled through the area ending practice early and ultimately nixing qualifying. During the drivers meeting, the top five in points pulled pills to create the invert and Eddie Johnson lucked out and got the right to lead the field to the green. Rookie of the Year contender John Goin would start to his outside followed by Mason Bailey, Chris Dodson, and Howie Disavino.

Eddie Johnson, the veteran Late Model Stock Car driver that he is, got a great start and led the field down into turn one. Goin, however, did not get going as fast as the rest of everyone else. Mason Bailey and Chris Dodson jumped on the hiccup faster than you could blink your eye, taking the second and third positions respectively. With Eddie Johnson sporting a two-second second lead over Dodson the battle was on for positions three through seven.

While Disavino, Bailey, Martz, Davis, and Hopkins were all fighting bumper-to-bumper and even door-to-door Chris Dodson caught the race leader the hard way – under green. Dodson was able to close the two-second gap from lap eleven down to just a couple of feet with just three laps left in the 2018 season. The pass for the lead actually came in turn four after Dodson looked to use the famous bump and run technique to get by. Johnson had to chase the car up the hill and Dodson down the front stretch looking to return the favor. However, it was not enough, Dodson would go on to take the race win by about two cars lengths. The win, though not needed to win the championship, just helped solidified Dodson’s dominance at the “toughest short track in the south.”

Behind the duo, Chris Hopkins was able to take the third position followed by Brad Davis, and Justin Martz. Though John Goin rounded out the field in the eleventh spot, he was able to earn the Rookie of the Year title.

“Oh man. You deal with time and it eventually runs out you know,” an emotional Chris Dodson in victory lane to accept his trophy. “I know a lot of people don’t like me but I just put everything I ever had. This place has always been very special to me. To have the twelve-year run that we have had when I started we were terrible, Sonny Hutchen told me I would never ever amount to anything if I didn’t stop wrecking. To win nine championships and seventy-two wins its very humbling. I am so blessed to do this, I really am. My guys just work so hard, and Williamsburg Honda, I feel like I am obligated to just race so hard. I know that might step on some people’s toes. But these parents of these of these kids coming up should be really proud.”

Dodson went on to thank more of the people that helped make the season happen. He also made mention that he did not know what 2019 held for him. He did hint that he would come back and make a run for a seventh win in a row from the JM Wilkinson Memorial race that is run on opening night.

Howie Disavino, who has worked his way up from the Arena Racing USA ranks, was able to finish second in the points after a handful of poles wins throughout the season.

“The redraw just wasn’t my friend this year,” Disavino said in victory lane. “We got up there [the front of the field] a couple times but the invert hurt us.” Disavino put up one heck of a fight this year finishing between two drivers that have been behind the wheel twice as long as he has been on this earth. “Congrats to Chris [Dodson] on that ninth championship. Got to thank TORP Chassis for the fast race cars. It was great to race with Chris and Eddie.”

Mason Bailey, who had a very impressive rookie season in 2017, was able to collect at least one win this season and put up solid runs to finish third in the final points standings.

“I wake up blessed to drive these cars every day,” Bailey said. “Shout out to all my guys and all of our business partners.”

Eddie Johnson Becomes Third Different Late Model Winner of 2018 at Southside

Midlothian, VA – Kicking the race weekend off was Southside Speedway in Midlothian, Virginia. Otherwise, known as the “Toughest Short Track in the South” had Late Models, Modifieds, Grand Stocks, UCAR, Legends, and Bando’s on the schedule for their first responders night.

Chris Dodson flexed his muscles earlier in the afternoon during the final practice/qualifying for the Late Model division earning the pole position being the only driver to hit a sub fifteen-second lap – 14.991 (79.968 MPH). John Goin, Howie Disavino, Bugs Hairfield, and Sonny Allen rounded out the top five fastest qualifiers in the field of ten. However, at the end of the 40-lap feature, it was veteran Late Model racer Eddie Johnson in victory lane. Dodson would finish almost three-tenths of a second behind the leader followed by Mason Bailey, Michael Sutphin, and Lane Janosik.

Dan Rogers was the quickest of thirteen Grand Stocks who came out to compete during First Responders Night. However, because Rogers had won the two previous races, he was forced to start at the rear of the field due to a long-standing Southside Speedway rule. Rogers would fight is way back up to the front but ended up just one position short by the end of the thirty lap feature. Austin Dodge was the first to the checkered flag and picked up his first victory of the season.

Michael Johnson was able to dethrone Chris Hopkins in the Modified division after setting quick time earlier in qualifying. Hopkins, who recorded the second fastest time, was forced to start at the rear of the field after winning the first two races of the season. Hopkins was able to drive back to the second position when the checkered flag flew. Ethan Ayers took the checkered in the UCAR feature while Cody Carlton picked up the win in the INEX Legends feature. Zachary Miracle opened up the night with a win the INEX Bandolero division.

Chris Johnson Capitalizes on Initial Start to Capture First Late Model Win of 2018 at Southside; Ethan Ayers & Ryan Paul Split UCAR Twin Bill

Chris Johnson climbs out of his Late Model in victory lane after leading every lap on April 13th at Southside Speedway.

Midlothian, VA – Howie Disavino, the 17-year-old Chesterfield native who just celebrated a birthday last week, surprised everyone when we laid down the fastest lap in qualifying earlier in the afternoon with a 14.959-second lap time. Averaging 80.139 MPH Disavino’s lap was just nine-thousandths of a second better than Southside veteran Chris Dodson. He would, however, invert the top four qualifiers handing the top spot over to sophomore driver Mason Bailey.

When Jodie Adkins displayed the green flag to the field Bailey either spun the tires or missed a gear on the start. This allowed Chris Johnson, who started on the outside pole, the opportunity to take the lead going into turn one and that was about all she wrote for the top spot. As things got settled in upfront Bailey found himself going the wrong way while Disavino mounted his charge back to the front. Chris Johnson and Disavino would check out over the field.

The 40-lap feature went caution free with some pretty action-packed racing for the third position on back. Bailey found himself under fire several times throughout the feature as he slid back to the seventh position where he ultimately finished. Veteran racers Bugs Hairfield, Eddie Johnson, and Chris Johnson ran nose to tail for several laps before Dodson got around the No. 43 for fourth.

With ten laps to go, Disavino really turned up the wick and his assault on race leader Chris Johnson. He would get into turn one just a little too hot and go into a four-wheel slide, ultimately killing any chance he would have at the win. Bugs Hairfield, Chris Dodson, and Eddie Johnson rounded out the top five.

 

Ethan Ayers was the second fastest qualifier earlier in the afternoon during qualifying. He would take the green flag in the third position after the four-car invert and found himself in the lead early. Ayers opened up more than an eight-car advantage before the first of two cautions flags flew. Dillon Devenny and Cameron Ruggles would take the cone and restart on the outside. However, Ayers was able to keep the lead and go on to win the race. Dillon Devenney, Joshua Thomas, Trevor Stinson, and Ryan Paul rounded out the top five which just happened to be how many cars were inverted for race two.

Paul, who was making just his second UCAR start due to the twins, used the invert to his advantage to jump out to an early lead. He would have to hold off Ayers just twice on restarts one coming immediately after the green and another on lap four when debris brought out the yellow.

The rear bumper cover of the No. 03 machine of Zachary Lindsey was the reason for the lap four caution and at the same time that is when we noticed the No. 72 of Joshua Thomas with a rear bumper cover falling off as well. Race officials decided that he needed to come down pit road to remove it before it fell off on the racing surface, he would ultimately battle back to an eighth-place finish.

On the ensuing restart, Ryan Paul struggled to get going and Ethan Ayers almost made him pay. The restart also allowed Michael Chapman to jump up to the third position. Paul would ultimately be able to hang onto the top spot over Ethan Ayers, Michael Chapman, Dillon Devenney, and Cameron Ruggles.

Chris Dodson Wins Rain Shortened Late Model Race in Southside Season Opener

Midlothian, VA – Chris Dodson continued his dominance at the 1/3-mile flat track that he has shown in the past. Dodson not only set the fastest time in “practifying” – Southside’s version of group qualifying – with a time 14.589 (82.171 MPH) but would also dominate the rain-shortened feature after pulling a one during the redraw to claim his 7th JM Wilkinson Memorial opening night Late Model win in a row.

The Late Models lived up to their pre-season hype with guys using their bumpers on lap two. Third place qualifier, Bugs Hairfield, and outside pole sitter Daniel Thomas was the first to tango. This would result in Thomas going around in the center of turns one and two. Both drivers would have to mount a charge through the very competitive field in a short amount of time.

Once the green flag was displayed to the field it only took until turn three for the caution flag to be displayed to the field yet again with just two laps on the board. The yellow and contact with rookie John Goin in turns three and four would halt his charge back to the front.

The field would settle down for a solid twenty-four-lap green flag run before contact between Mason Bailey (No. 05) and Brad Davis (No. 18) would cause an accordion effect which resulted in Michael Sutphin going around, in turn, four bringing out the nights the third caution for the late models.

Only one lap would be run before Layne Janosik’s (No. 79) would get loose off of turn two and go sliding into the backstretch boilerplate wall. He would then climb the wall for a brief moment which then shot the car left across the racetrack turning Daniel Thomas’ already bad night, worse. Both cars were too damaged to continue.

The next restart came at lap twenty-seven and again the caution would immediately follow the green as Eddie Johnson looped his number 43 machine as he entered turn three. The field would get a handful of laps in before Johnson, who was on his way back through the field, would get into the rear of Michael Sutphin’s Chevy as they entered the corner resulting in a spin and another yellow flag working lap number thirty-two.

While Mother Nature was preparing to put the proverbial fork in the night, the cone restart resulted in an intense battle between Brad Davis and fast qualifier Chris Dodson until contact on lap thirty-five between Michael Sutphin and rookie Justin Martz as they crossed the stripe. Martz’s would climb the right rear of Sutphin and both cars, still entangled, would spin entering turn one. The body of Sutphin’s machine partially removed, including the roof and greenhouse bowed up in the air, resulting Martz’s rear end parked atop the turn one wall.

As the track safety crew carefully removed Martz from the turn one wall, that is when the bottom dropped out. The weather system had entered the area and was there to stay. This would force officials to end the evening early as the racing surface was lost. With thirty-five of the forty laps completed, the Late Model feature would be deemed official and Chris Dodson picked up the win over Brad Davis, Chris Johnson, Howie DiSavino, and Mason Bailey.

Ethan Ayers set quick time earlier in the afternoon during practifying with a lap time of 16.767. Ryan Paul, Cameron Ruggles, Joshua Thomas and Beejay Anderson were the remaining quick qualifiers for the 25-lap feature. However, these drivers were not able to take the green flag for their season-opening race. The speedway will make an announcement at a later date if or when this race could be rescheduled.

Special thank to Buck Reuss and Erika Gay for providing information for this release.

Southside Speedway Set to Kick 2018 Season Off Tonight; Mason Bailey Poised for First Late Model Championship

Midlothian, VA – Southside Speedway is all set to open the gates to racers and fans in the central Virginia area for their 59th season later this evening. With many other tracks within the commonwealth having the cancel their events on Saturday night, Southside looks like they will be able to get their opening night program in the books.

Gates will open for fans at 6:00 PM with qualifying getting underway around 7:45 PM with the green flag to follow shortly after. As in years past, all six divisions will be running throughout the evening with the Late Model’s running the most laps, a 40-lap feature. The IMCA style Modifieds are scheduled to run for 30-laps as will the Grand Stocks. The UCAR and Legend’s division will feature 25-lap races while the INEX Bando’s will generally kick the evening off with a 15-lap feature.

Last year Eddie Johnson proved that age is just a number by winning the Late Model championship at the 1/3-mile flat track. He is poised to make his return this year to the speedway with other long-time veterans like his son Chris Johnson and even Buggs Hairfield, however, this year those drivers will have their hands full with Mason Bailey who told The Weekly Racer earlier this week he will be competing full time this year at Southside for the championship and we have to say… we have Bailey picked as the odds-on early favorite to hoist that championship trophy at the end of the year.

“So excited for this season,” Bailey said in an interview about his upcoming season. “This time last year I was a little nervous and had no idea what to expect. With last season’s wins and experience, I feel really dialed in as a driver. On top of that, we’ve been able to take this off-season to improve the car and study last season’s information.”

Last year Southside Speedway saw some of the largest and most consistent car counts throughout all of its divisions and there was no shortage of action-packed evenings in the Late Models despite the track being unsanctioned by NASCAR – something that some will argue helps make the competition more equal. Going into 2018 Bailey will be up against some of the best in the business who have been doing longer than he has been around, we asked if that changed anything on race day.

“You got that right. No shortage of action and drama,” Bailey expressed. “It does change things for sure, but I welcome it, I understand where the veterans are coming from in that regard. The veterans out there are going to be much quicker to knock me out of the way than if it were another seasoned driver. However, knowing that ahead of time, it creates opportunities I can use to my advantage to maybe do something I know they wouldn’t expect. And I think you saw some examples of that last year.”

Looking back at last year Bailey started off strong at Southside proving he would be a contender week in and week out. Went out to Martinsville Speedway at the end of the year to compete in the prestigious VallyStar Credit Union 300 and struggled but is looking forward to getting back on track this year with some great returning partners and going after plenty of wins.

“Yessir!” Bailey proclaimed. “Very excited to have Schell Brothers return as the primary sponsor this season. Honored to work with such a prestigious organization and represent them on and off the track. Also can’t forget Commonwealth Plumbing, CR Phillips Electrical, and Hernandez Constructors. We’ve got quite the list of reputable businesses, but there’s always room for more!”

Tickets for tonight’s races and the rest of the season are just $16 for adults, $14 for seniors and military, children six to eleven are just $8 and those young race fans five and under are free. Outside coolers are permitted inside the grandstands given they are under 18” and contain no glass bottles or outside food. For group tickets or VIP suite rentals make to contact the track.

Heat Race Set for First ValleyStar Credit Union 300 Race Under the Lights at Martinsville Speedway

Ridgeway, VA – After one of the most interesting pole days in recent ValleyStar Credit Union 300 history, the fastest two drivers had their times disallowed. Jeff Oakley, who calls Dominion Raceway home, though he was the first driver to win a pole award at Martinsville Speedway under the new permanent LED lights. However, after a spacer plate was found on Oakley’s carb and an altered squitter on McCaskill’s car during post-qualifying technical inspection, both drivers had their times thrown out. McCaskill will start at the tail end of heat race number one while Oakley will start at the end of race number three.

You can find your favorite driver below and who they will line up with during their twenty-five lap heat race. The top ten finishers from each heat race will line up for the 200-lap feature much like how NASCAR scores the Gatorade Duels. The winner of heat one will start third while the second place finisher will start sixth. The remaining drivers, who can answer the call, will race a twenty-five lap, last chance qualifier, where the top ten cars will make up the rest of the field.

General Admission gates will open Saturday afternoon at 2:00 PM with an on-track autograph session scheduled from 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM. Heat races will go green at 4:00 PM with the 200-lap feature starting at 8:00 PM. If you can’t make it out to the track remember MRN will be broadcasting this race on local affiliates, make sure to also check out their app and website. The Weekly Racer will also have you covered with LIVE lap-by-lap coverage on our Twitter feed (@theweeklyracer).
