Philip Morris Dominates Caution Free Feature at Langley Speedway from the Pole

Hampton, VA– After coming off a win and a second place finish the week prior in the return of Motor Mile Speedway to the NASCAR community, Philip Morris rolled into Hampton, Virginia with one thing on his mind – domination. He did just that when it came time to get down to business. Morris laid down a 15.768-second lap to earn the pole position. Brenden Queen, Greg Edwards, Danny Edwards Jr., and Connor Hall rounded out the fast five

Morris wasted absolutely zero time jumping out to the lead when Shayne Snider waved the green flag. Brenden Queen did his best to battle on the outside groove but failed to make anything happen but falling in line in the second position. That was until Connor Hall turned up the wick and got around the Chesapeake native bringing Greg Edwards with him. By the time Hall completed the pass Morris had opened up more than a full second lead and continued to set a blistering pace.

Towards the middle part of the race, Hall was able to close the gap that Morris had worked so hard to build. However, lapped traffic seemed to play into the hands of the five-time national champion. Morris was able to work his way around much easier than Hall and Edwards. In fact, Edwards was able to apply pressure on Hall for the second spot. This also allowed Morris to rebuild his lead. Edwards would eventually give Hall a shot going into turn one as the laps clicked off to eventually take second, Hall would settle into third. Brenden Queen and Thomas Marks rounded out the top five.

Maddy Mulligan had the best run of her Langley Late Model career as her car looked to come in later in the race. After making sure to say out of the way of Morris she was able to get around Rodney Boyd, Rick Gdovic, and rookie Zach Lightfoot. Even though she finished two laps down she would leave the property with a seventh-place finish.

Morris was excited in victory lane after making a statement on the track and made another one in the microphone.

“A win here at Langley Speedway is so special for me because it has been such a hard place,” Morris said in victory lane. “Especially what happened to the car the last time we were here. I have to thank Herb Nation, Travis, Forrest and all the guys at Forrest–Reynolds Racing for getting it back this close. It had a couple little hiccups during the race but all in all, I would say it’s [the car] as good as it’s ever been. My guys and spotter did a great job tonight, I can’t be any more proud of them.”

Morris also gave credit where credit was due saying he had to be on his toes tonight with the level of competition that was behind him. He would also foreshadow that this might be the Morris we see in a few short months at the Hampton Heat.

“It’s just hard not to spin the tires when the seventy-seven [Connor Hall] and Greg Edwards are so good here,” Morris said. “Darrell Poe did a great job on this motor for tonight, it’s nice and fresh, and I think we are about ready for the Hampton Heat.”

In support divisions, Paul Lubno ended up in victory lane after Tim Wilson and Sammy Gaita made contact racing for the lead in the 40-lap Grand Stock feature. Gaita had been leaving more than normal room on the bottom line on corner exit and Wilson saw his opportunity at the win. The contact sent Sammy spinning down the front stretch and made hard contact with the inside retaining wall.

Brandon Wood took the victory in the Bojangles UCAR feature while Chase McAdams found victory lane once more in the Harris Truck Shop Super Trucks.

Billy Hubbard Kicks of 2019 Season with a $2,000 Win at Dixieland Speedway

Billy Hubbard returns to Dixieland Speedway victory lane in 2019. Picks up $2,000. (Justin Kern/TheWeeklyRacer.com)

Elizabeth City, NC – Friday night racing in Elizabeth City returned for its thirty-seventh season yesterday evening as drivers and fans from all over filled the 3/8-mile clay facility. $2,000 and a shot at the points lead were up for grabs in a 50-lap All Star Showdown. It was no surprise when defending track champion Billy Hubbard picked up right where he left off in 2018 – right in victory lane.

Hubbard was the fastest man on the property right out of the gate as the beautiful sunset over eastern North Carolina. Seventeen cars were on hand for opening night all fighting for the big money. Only one care was not able to answer the call for time trial qualifying, that was the 77 of Brian Hankins, who had issues during fast practice that ended his night earlier than he would have wanted. Hubbard laid an impressive lap of 17.581 (76.787 MPH). Ryan Steely, Tom Wilson, Brent Robinson, and Larry Jackson also made up your fastest five starters.

It didn’t take long for things to get a little interesting and honestly we kind of went into the feature half expecting that. Sixteen cars, fighting for a shot at $2,000, on a 3/8-mile track, no wider than sixty feet; you are bound to have a few issues. Oddly enough the only major issue plagued the field and that came and went early on lap three.

The No. 101 of Ryan Steel ended up parked at the top of turn number two with heavy front-end damage. Things happened so quickly we didn’t see exactly what happened; however, it appeared Steely entered turn one just a little too low, which helped caused the damage. He would need to be towed off the racing surface and his night would end early. At the same time Brent Robinson, who entered the evening as one of the favorites to pick up the victory, also had issues early and pulled off the racing surface under his own power but his night was in fact over.

The race was only slowed one more time immediately following the first restart for a spinning Toby Davis. After that, it was all green flag racing and total domination from Hubbard. Behind him, however, was the battle to watch for most of the feature between the “Green Machine” of Tom Wilson and the No. 2 of Larry Jackson. Wilson controlled the tempo for most of the race until he slipped through turn three and four that Jackson capitalized on. From there he was able to drive away and secure a second place finish as he had nothing to offer Hubbard, even with the help of lap traffic. Wilson was able to hang onto the final podium spot. Kerry King and Sherman Underwood rounded out the top five finishers.

We caught up with Hubbard in victory lane to talk about his night and how the race went for him.

“I was just trying to conserve tires the first half of the race and stay out of trouble with those lap cars, Hubbard said in victory lane following his dominating victory. “They were tough tonight, just couldn’t pick a lane and decide which way they wanted to go. We took our time though and pick our way through there and went easy on the equipment.”

Hubbard’s car looked to be in a league of his own all night powering off the corners.

“Yea it’s not all horses under this race car,” Hubbard went on to explain. “All this crew, these boys do a phenomenal job week in and week out. Without Bubba and Marty, none of this would even be possible.  Also like to thank Sawyers Marine and all he does, Bill Mullis and Langley Speedway, B&C Seafood, Haywood Marine Construction and of course all of these fans for coming out every weekend.”

In other racing action, Justin Pruitt had luck on his side in the Super Street division after the No. 11 of Ben Thomas took the lead on the initial start from the outside pole but had a tire issue following a caution. Thomas was able to get back to the pits and change the tired but was never the same after that. Dennis Barnes, Danny Bagewell, Ben Thomas, and Joe Shannon rounded out the top five.

Joe Weiss took the victory in the Sportsman class followed by Mark Gonzales, Troy Brickhouse, Nick Odell, and Doug Lincoln.

James Hissom Jr. was victorious in the Stock Four class after an epic 15-lap battle with Trevor Battoia.

Sellers Scores Second South Boston Speedway Win in Easter Bunny Late Model 100

South Boston, Va – Defending South Boston Speedway NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division Champion Peyton Sellers sped past teenage rookie Daniel Silvestri with 53 laps to go and went on to win Saturday night’s NASCAR Easter Bunny Late Model 100 at South Boston Speedway.

Saturday night’s win in the caution-free race was the second of the season for the former NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion from Danville, Virginia.

Silvestri, driving a car co-owned by NASCAR racer Jeb Burton of Halifax, Virginia and H. C. Sellers of Danville, Virginia, trailed by 2.498 seconds at the finish. The race was Silvestri’s second outing in a Late Model Stock Car. He had competed in twin 75-lap Late Model Stock Car Division races at South Boston Speedway on March 30.

Mike Looney of Catawba, Virginia finished third, holding off former NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Lee Pulliam of Alton, Virginia and defending NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Philip Morris of Ruckersville, Virginia in a battle for third place over the closing laps.

The race featured two lead changes among Sellers and Silvestri, with Sellers leading twice for a total of 86 laps and Silvestri leading once for 14 laps.

Sellers averaged 91.168 mph in winning the race that took 26 minutes and 19 seconds to complete.

Borst, Moss Split Wins In Limited Sportsman Twinbill

Two new winners emerged in the pair of 25-lap NASCAR Limited Sportsman Division races Saturday night at South Boston Speedway, with Jacob Borst of Elon, North Carolina and Daniel Moss of Danville, Virginia splitting wins in the twinbill.

In the first 25-lap race, Borst took the lead from Jessica Dana of Mooresville, North Carolina on the 10th lap and held off a fast-closing Danny Willis Jr. of South Boston, Virginia to secure the win. Borst’s margin of victory over Willis was .287-second.

Dana finished third with rookie Landon Pembelton and Moss rounding out the top five finishers.

The second race featured an inverted start among the top four finishers of the first race, but Moss started from the pole after a crash that occurred before the first lap was completed took out Pembelton and heavily damaged Willis’s car.

Moss led the entire race, edging Dana by .216-second to claim the win. Borst finished third with Drew Dawson of Nathalie, Virginia and Cole Bruce of Fredericksburg, Virginia rounding out the top five finishers.

Crews Wins Pure Stock Division Race

Nathan Crews of Long Island, Virginia took the lead from Jordan Pickrel of Keeling, Virginia on the second lap and took the win in the night’s 30-lap Budweiser Pure Stock Division race.

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

Mason Bailey dives into turn one at Southside Speedway during round two of practice Friday afternoon March 29th, 2019. (Justin Kern/TheWeeklyRacer.com)

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

Top three drivers and Rookie of the Year celebrate in victory lane at the conclusion of the 2018 season at Southside Speedway. Drivers from left to right: John Goin, Mason Bailey, Howie Disavino, Chris Dodson. (Justin Kern/TheWeeklyRacer.com)

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

Photo: Sarah Kay Speedshots

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.
