Doyle Claims Late Model Win at TCMS

By Pat Simmons

Hudson, NC (August 26, 2005) - Jimmy Doyle picked up the Late Model Stock victory at Tri-County Motor Speedway Friday night after holding off Nick Waycaster early in the race and then Josh Goble, who had his sights set on the trophy.


Doyle took the lead on lap two and was able to extend his lead, but an early caution on lap 10 for Junior Franks and Waycaster spinning in turn four bunched the field back up.  On the restart Goble began to pressure Doyle but was unable to get by.


With Doyle leading the 16 car field to the checkered flag, Goble was second with Franks third and Waycaster fourth.  Matt Leicht was fifth, Jimmy Rice sixth, Bobby DeCola seventh, Stan Robinson eighth, Charles Collins ninth and Scottie Collins broke into the top ten on his first visit to the speedway.


The Pepsi Super Sport Challenge race, once again, belonged to Scott Franklin, who had to work his way from the eighth starting spot for the win.


At the drop of the green Monty Cox charged to the front and with only two laps to go Franklin made the move after the pair raced side-by-side for several laps, keeping the fans on their feet.


Cox was second with Ricky Brown third, Kaleb Pressley fourth and Brian Stahl fifth.


In the Hudson Superette Street Stocks, Josh Burchette picked up another win after, also, starting in the eighth position.


As the field came to the green, Kevin Hensley grabbed the lead, but on lap five Terrence Tucker took over on the point.  It took 13 laps for Burchette to the front and take the lead away from Tucker.


Kevin Eby moved up to take second with Jesse LeFevers third, Gary Ledbetter fourth and Tucker fell to fifth.


Hank Hefner scored the victory in the Mini Stock feature after a tough battle with David Pennell.  Hefner started fourth with Pennell in the rear.


Hefner bolted past Archie Sanders early to take the point, and never looked back, until he felt the pressure from Pennell.  On the last lap it looked as though Pennell might be able to make it a photo finish, but he got loose in turn four, giving Hefner a clear shot for the win while  Pennell earned second.


A.J. Sanders was in third, Doug Setzer fourth and George Anen fifth.


In the Fast and Furious shoot-out Jody Church came to the front from the fifth starting spot for the win.


David Hasson had the lead early, but on lap sixth Church  won the battle for lead.  Hasson then had to contend with a strong running Jeff Poston and the two ran side-by-side lap after lap until Poston took over second.


With Church celebrating in victory lane and Poston second, Hasson was third,  Stephen Clippard fourth and Wayne Harrington was fifth.


The Tri-County Minis put on a battle of major proportions as Travis Cook took his first win.  Jeff Banks started in the rear and made his way to the front car by car to pressure Cook, while young Tim McRae was wanting to get into the battle and the three crossed the start/finish line together in a three-wide finish.  Banks earned second with McRae third, Tony Taylor fifth and Matthew Sizemore in fifth.


Next Friday night Road Rage will return with racing in all other divisions.  For more information call 726-6600 or visit the speedway.
