Leicht Wins Two In A Row

Press Release- Race Report 5-16-08

By Mark Baute

Hudson, North Carolina (May 16, 2008) - Contractors Resources Night at the Races was filled with lots of excitement on Friday night.  With Hickory Motor Speedway not racing this week, several new faces were spotted in the pits of Tri-County. 


The Super Trucks raced first with the #09 of Scott Whitaker taking the pole and inverting back to 6th after the dice roll.  The race included three cautions, all by the same driver. The finish reminded the crowd of close action from a couple of weeks ago when the late models finished 3 wide.  This week Dexter Canipe Jr. came across the finish line with trucks slamming on their brakes to avoid crashing and still trying to cross the finish line first.  The top five consisted of Ben Ebeling, Travis Mosley, Dexter Canipe Jr, Ernie Harris and Scott Whitaker.


The Late Model pole sitter Lucas Ransone dropped back to start third putting rookie Ryan Truex, brother of Sprint Cup driver Martin Truex Jr, on the inside during his debut of Late Model racing. Kevin Leicht, last weeks winner, started outside pole. From the dropping of the green flag, Leicht jumped to a large lead in the first five laps.  Lucas Ransone dropped back in the pack and started making his way to catch Leicht.  Caution in lap 33 bunched all the cars back together.  Three laps after the green was waved an accident occurred involving the 53 of Stan Robinson, 44 Blake Haugland, and 5 Derek Kneeland.  Leicht got the jump in the final restart and led all 50 laps of the Late Model feature. Ransone, Todd Goble, Lee Tissot and Coleman Pressley rounded out the top five.


In the Baton Tire Street Stock race, Chris Townsend got out to the lead and was about to run away from the pack when Kevin Eby decided that he would put some pressure on after a caution caused by a tire falling off of Chris Kidd’s #7 on the back stretch.  Townsend collected his third win of the season and his second in a row. Eby, Marshall Sutton, Josh Burchette and Mike Hatton rounded out the top five.


The Red Baron Race Parts Hobby Stocks had the Superman of Wayne Harrington taking the checkers, Chad Miller, Stephen Clippard, Jimmy Whisnant and Carroll McKinney rounding out the top five.
