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.

The Speedway will take next week off and will return to racing Friday and Saturday September 14 & 15 for the FASTRAK World Championship weekend. Friday September 14 the speedway will host a $5000 to win FASTRAK members only event and then on Saturday September 15th for the $20,000 to win FASTRAK World Championship that is open to any crate late model competitor.

Joey Polevoy Worst to First at Virginia Motor Speedway for Sixth Budweiser Modified Victory

Jamaica, VA – It was Joey Polvoy once again parking his #51 Modified in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane this past weekend during Essex Concrete night at Virginia Motor Speedway, but it wasn’t easy for the current division points leader. Polevoy told the crowd on hand in victory lane after his 30-lap feature that the team found a broken part on the car and would start the feature from dead last. Lance Grady (#48) of Hanover, Virginia would lead the field to green with Mark Parks (#10) of Lynchburg, Virginia lining up just to his outside.

At the drop of the green flag, Grady looked to take command of the race opening up a ten-car gap on second pretty quick. Parks would run into some issues through turns one and two and fall all the way to the rear and eventually behind the pit wall. That would hand the second position over to Bret Hamilton (#121), who would eventually have issues of his own that would regulate him to a fifteenth place finish.

The first of many cautions came on lap number four when David Kendall (#16) went around in turn four and collected a little bit of the outside wall. Joey Polevoy had already made his way back up to the seventh position. An ace on the single file restarts, Polevoy was able to rocket his way all the way up to the fourth position by the time entered turn one. It only took Polevoy thirteen laps and a few restarts to work his way around Lance Grady to take sole possession of the lead. Grady would eventually run into some issues of his own and would have to settle for a thirteenth place finish.

Hunter McClendon of Williamsburg, Virginia, started the feature in the sixth position, started to turn the wick up just past the halfway point of the race. Picking up where the two left just a couple weeks ago, McClendon kept Polevoy honest in the closing laps and even more honest on the multiple late race restarts. Francis Jarelle (#01), Tim Schulte (#10S), and Mike Reynolds (#112) would round out the top five finishers.

The Collision One Limited Stock 25-lap feature wrapped up the evening and wound up having some of the best racing of the night. James Givens (#8) and eventual winner Corey Bradley (#41) spent most of the race battling door to door for the win. Current points leader Ryan Hutchens ran into issues each time the caution flag waved when a fire broke out under the hood of his #14 machine. We were hearing in the press box a hole in the oil filter was the culprit. Crews extinguished the fires and sent him back out several times to finish the race, however, would be regulated to the tenth position.Givens made one last stab at the lead on the final lap trying to take Bradley on the outside through turn two but it wasn’t enough to and Corey Bradley would be able to hang on for his first career win. James Givens, Marty Coltrain, Chris Champion and Stephanie Johnston rounded out the top five finishers.

Jamaica, VA – 2015 Victory Lap Pro Late Model Champion Tyler Bare of Rockbridge Baths, VA left no doubt in anyone’s mind that he is a contender for this year’s championship with a very convincing win in the Pro Late Model 35 lap feature at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway. Bare would sweep the outside of Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA out of turn 2 to take the lead on lap 3. Once out front Bare was able to fend off a couple of challenges for the top spot from Corey Almond of Appomattox, VA in the later stages of the race to score his third win of the season.

“This Rocket XR1 performed flawlessly tonight, I can’t thank my crew enough for giving me such a hot rod, commented Bare in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane.

Lipscombe and Bare led the field to green with Libscombe taking the lead heading into turn 1 with Bare right on his bumper. On the next circuit, Bare rocketed around the outside of Lipscombe out of turn 2 for the lead, one he would never relinquish.

Behind his the battle all race long was for the second spot as Almond, Justin Williams, Matt Quade and Lipscombe took turns in the runner up spot. Defending Champion and current point leader Williams brought out the first caution with a flat right rear tire that would send him to pit road. Williams would work his way back to fourth but could not get to the front to challenge for the lead. Two late cautions allowed Almond to make a run at bare but each time the leader was up to the task and held on to take the win. Rounding out the top five were Corey Almond, Matt Quade, Justin Williams and Davis Lipscombe.

On other action Hunter McClendon of Williamsburg, VA picked up his career first Budweiser Modified win holding off defending Champion and current point leader Joey Polevoy of Powhatan, VA. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman feature Tim Shelton of Fredericksburg, VA grabbed the lead from Chad Beahr of Mechanicsville, VA on lap five and then held off Brett Atkins of Gloucester, VA for his second win in a row and in the Collision One Limited Stock feature Ryan Hutchens of Providence Forge, VA drove inside Chad Champion of Bumpass, VA on lap six to grab the lead and go on to score his second win of the season.

In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature Chad Beahr and Tyler Shipp led the field to green with Beahr taking command of the lead out of turn 2 and a four wide battle behind him for second. Tim Shelton would work his way to his bumper by lap 5 and get by for the lead out of turn 4. Once out front, Shelton held a commanding lead until Brett Atkins worked his way to second. Over the remaining 20 laps, Shelton would have to work to keep Atkins behind him. Shelton would go on to score his second win of the season followed by Atkins, Joe Weiss, Chad Beahr and Steve Causey rounding out the top five.

Hunter McClendon and Lance Grady would lead the Budweiser Modified field to green with McClendon leading the first circuit in his first race of the season. While McClendon held Grady at bay current point leader Joey Polevoy worked his way to third and by lap 11 was looking to get by Grady for second. On lap 13 Polevoy would sweep around Grady for second and set his sights on McClendon. Over the remaining 17 laps, Polevoy would try several lines to try and get by for the lead. Each time McClendon would hold him off and go on to score his career first victory. Rounding out the top five were Polevoy, Lance Grady, Mark Parks and Tim Schulte.

In the Collision One Limited Stock Car 25 lap feature David Bowler and Cory Bradley led the field to green with third place starter Chad Champion getting by to lead the first lap. Champion would pace the field until Ryan Hutchens would get inside Champion in turn 1 to take the lead. Once out front, Hutchens would cruise to his second win of the season followed by James Givens, David Bowler and Corey Bradley rounding out the top five.

The Speedway will return to racing on Saturday, July 15th and host MetroCast Night and week 8 of the Aaron’s Dirt Series Championship weekly racing action featuring the Victory Lap Pro Late Model, Truckin Thunder Sportsman, Budweiser Modified and Collision One Limited Stock Car divisions.
