Doyle Picks Up Win at TCMS

By Pat Simmons

Hudson, NC (July 22, 2005) - Jimmy Doyle’s hard work paid off Friday night after he took the checkered flag in the Late Model Stock event at Tri-County Motor Speedway.  Doyle started fourth on the field after Rock Harris set a blistering pace in qualifying and reverted back to fifth after the roll of the dice.


As the cars came to the green, Doyle was able to get past pole sitter Josh Goble to take the point.  Doyle’s team mate, Lee Tissot, gave Doyle a run for his money and the pair battled throughout the event, while Goble rode in third waiting for one or both drivers to make a mistake.  Doyle and Tissot wee at the top of their game, though, and that mistake didn’t come.  Goble wasn’t bored while he was back there, as he had to fend off the advances of Junior Franks.  Franks was fighting hard to get by Goble, but that wasn’t in the cards.


With Doyle taking the trophy and Tissot second, Goble third and Franks fourth Rock Harris was fifth.  Daniel Pope was sixth and Scooter Hillis seventh in their first visit to the speedway. Nick Waycaster was eighth, John Reynolds ninth and Eric Greene was tenth.


In the Pepsi Super Stock Challenge, Scott Franklin took his second win of the season.  Franklin made an emotional dedication of the win to his mom, who has been recently hospitalized.


As the field came to the green Steve Parris was on the pole and grabbed the lead early, while Chuck Suddreth was in pursuit and was able to make the pass for the lead on the second lap.  Franklin then made the move on Suddreth on lap seven, but then on lap 11 Suddreth was able to get back out front, but that only lasted three laps before Franklin made another move to take the lead.


On the 14th circuit Suddreth spun, which moved Mark Livingston up to finish second.  Russell Goforth was third, Marshall Sutton fourth and Suddreth came back to take fifth.


The Hudson Superette Street Stocks put on a thrilling show as Kevin Hensley was trying to earn his first win of the season while attempting to hold off Bill Lett.  Lett was able to get past Hensley on lap 11 and it appeared Hensley had lost the handle on his racer.  Kevin Eby and Ernie Harris followed suit and Hensley dropped several positions, while fighting to hold on to his racer.


With Lett capturing his first win of the season in his Sutton Racing owned machine, Eby took second with Harris third and last week’s winner, Gary Deitz coming home fifth.


George Anen, Jr. stepped into the Mini Stock of Horace Griffin and picked up his first trophy of the season.  Jason Bustle was second, A.J. Sanders third, Randy Canipe fourth and Doug Setzer was fifth.


Wayne Harrington came to Tri-County to give the Fast and Furious another shot and this time it paid off.  Harrington took the win with Jody Church second, David Hasson third, Jeff Poston fourth and Stephen Clippard fifth.


Jeff Banks was first at the checkers in the Tri-County Minis with Tony Taylor second, Tim McRae third, Greg Parsons fourth and Matt Sizemore, Jr. fifth.


A field of 20 drivers came to the speedway to take a chance on grabbing the $500 winner-takes-all Road Rage purse, while venting their frustrations on other drivers.  Wesley Sain, of Hickory, was first to cross the line in the race that kept the fans on their feet and cheering.  Jerry Steins, of Hickory, won the raffle to drive a car in the event, but Steins luck ran out early.


Road Rage will return to the speedway in two weeks and continue to be a bi-weekly event.
