Family Night at the Races

Press Release- Race Report 5-9-08

By Mark Baute

Hudson, North Carolina (May 9, 2008) - Family Night at the races opened with pole positions in the Baton Tire Street Stock division in which Terrence Tucker ran an 18.226 and inverted the dice back to fourth position. Pepsi Limited Late Model pole sitter Bill Cassavaugh ran a 17.049 and he inverted back to sixth after the dice roll.  In the Late Model division, Kevin Leicht won his second pole of the season running a 16.357 beating Lee Tissot by 0.013.


Feature racing began with the Red Baron Race Parts Hobby Stocks having the #88 of Chad Miller start up front followed by Wayne “Superman” Harrington’s #3. Stephen Clippard finished third, Jimmy Whisnant in fourth and Carroll McKinney in fifth.


The Baton Tire Street Stocks packed a lot of action in their race tonight. The first three laps of the race held two different cautions, taking two drivers out of the race with damaged cars.  On the second lap, Kevin Eby, Jonathon Smith, Kody Townsend and Terrence Tucker got together leaving Tucker in the wall. One lap after the green came back, Jonathon Smith and Kevin Eby got tangled together on the front stretch and Jonathon Smith spun hard into the front wall and he found his way to the pits for the night.  After those two cautions we had a solid battle up front by Chris Townsend and Jeremy Pelfrey, side by side action for nearly eighteen to nineteen laps, changing lead every lap. Chris Townsend ended up beating Pelfrey to the line for his second win of the season.  Rounding out the top five were Townsend, Pelfrey, David Smith, Marshall Sutton and Kevin Eby.


The Pepsi Limited Late Models fielded a couple of new drivers this week including Hickory regular Josh Wright.  Action packed racing from front to back. After inverting back to sixth after the dice roll Bill Cassavaugh did the most work making his way back up for a third place finish. Scott Franklin led all the way from the green all the way to the checkers. Josh Wright made his way up to follow Franklin. Cassavaugh, Kevin Dill and Chris Phipps rounded out the top five.


The Late Model race was ready for action. Eleven drivers finished on the lead lap. Kevin Leicht moved to outside pole on his dice inversion of one putting Lee Tissot on the inside pole position.  Leicht did not take very long before he found his way in front of Tissot and kept the lead with Tissot battling him for the first half of the race. Meanwhile, Andy Loden, current points leader, moved in behind Tissot and took second place away and started to challenge Leicht for first place.  Top five were Kevin Leicht, Andy Loden, Lee Tissot, rookie Grant Wimbish and Travis Swaim.


Road Rage finished the show off with lots of hard knocks. Junk cars beat and banged for nearly 6 full laps until the race was stopped to bunch the cars back together.  Keith Stockton came across the finish line first at the end of 10 laps.
