NASCAR Whelen Series Action Continues at TCMS

Press Release- Race Report 5-23-08

Hudson, North Carolina (May 23, 2008) - Tri-County Motor Speedway showed why “Action is the Attraction” on Friday night.  The early morning started with all the Allison Legacy cars showing up early to get in some practice for their show later in the evening.


The Baton Tire Street Stock division started the show off. With no qualifying, just inverting the top six in points, that put Josh Burchette up front to start the race.  It did not take long for Chris Townsend to jump out and take an early lead. Chris won the last two races in Street Stock.  After eighteen laps, Chris’ tires began to fade away and he became very loose coming out of the turns. This allowed for Terrence Tucker in the #42 to catch up and take the lead all the way to the finish. Top five included Tucker, Kevin Eby, Jeremy Pelfrey, Chris Townsend and Jonathon Smith.


The Allison Legacy Series was next in line for the show.  Early battles for position caused just two cautions in the race taking the #36 of Paul Beckner out of the race in the second caution of the night. The #52 of Austin Hogue, from Manchester, PA came across the finish line first with the #68 of Michael Cooper out of Pittsboro, NC coming in close behind.  Tayla Orleans, Justin Allison and Timmy Hill rounded out the top five.


The Red Baron Race Parts Hobby Stocks fielded just three cars. Start and finishing order was Ronnie Sims, Jimmy Whisnant and Carroll McKinney.


After the dice roll in the Pepsi Limited Late Models, Josh Wright dropped back to fourth position putting Nathan Dellinger up front with Bill Cassavaugh on the outside.  It did not take long for Bill to get out with an early lead. Dexter Canipe, Jr. had trouble in the early going getting his way back up to Cassavaugh.  With a caution on lap 25, Dexter Canipe, Jr. got right in behind Cassavaugh and Wright was in hot pursuit as well.  Cassavaugh came across the finish line getting the checkered flag with Canipe, Jr., Wright, Scott Franklin and Steve Parris rounding out the top five.


The NASCAR Whelen Late Models had Andy Loden taking the pole with a 16.459 and rolling a four on the dice put RA Brown down on the inside pole and Clint Almquist on the outside pole. RA Brown did not waste any time in getting out and stealing the spotlight for the rest of the competitors.  RA led all the way to the checkers.  The back of the pack held lots of action with drivers Chrissy Wallace, Matt DiBenedetto, Lee Tissot, Andy Loden, Clint Almquist and Grant Wimbish battling for spots 3-8. Finishing order in the Late Model race: RA Brown, Lucas Ransone, rookie Grant Wimbish, Andy Loden and Matt DiBenedetto.


Road Rage finished off the show with Jimmy Stockton coming across the finish line first.


Next week is Baton Tire/Craftsman Night at the Races, come on out and enjoy the Late Models, Pepsi Limited Late Models, Baton Tire Street Stocks and Red Baron Race Parts Hobby Stocks. Kids bring your bicycles for bike races on the track.
