Can the Rookies Prevail in the 150 ?

Which Lucky Fan Will Win the Jeff Gordon Driving Experience?


Press Release by: Wink Bodenhamer

Hudson, North Carolina (August 22, 2008) - The answer to these questions will be answered on 8-29-08 at Tri County Speedway. At the conclusion of the 150, the race winner will draw from the adult ticket stubs to announce the driving experience winner. 


Melling Select Rookies Brandon McReynolds, Darrell Wallace Jr., Corey LaJoie, Scott Andrews Jr. and Dillon Smith showed their muscle thrilling the crowd at Franklin County on 8-16-08 by storming home with top ten finishes.  McReynolds and Wallace put on a whale of a show with veterans Richard Boswell II, Jamey Caudill and Jamie Yelton in their wake.  McReynolds clinched his first UARA victory.  


I had emailed Larry McReynolds, Brandon’s dad after the event.  He responded via email “I'm still in shock! Just didn't factor this in, in his rookie season! “.  What a great surprise for a man of Larry McReynolds talent. 


Series point leader Jake Crum was having problems at Franklin County and finished 16th but managed to maintain his point lead.  Alex Yontz however has managed to close that lead to a mere seven points.  Yontz managed to slip into second ahead of Jamey Caudill.  Yontz sat on the pole, lead a lap and lead the most laps giving him those coveted fifteen bonus points.  Caudill however is just four points behind Yontz followed closely by Boswell. 


Boswell is another story. He has been consistently all over the front of the pack but has failed to gain that first UARA victory.  He came within a fenders length at Ace Speedway.  Boswell shows he has what it takes with two second place finishes and four third place finishes in the first eleven UARA races.  It is just a matter of time. 

Within the top ten points Roger Lee Newton maintains 6th followed by B.J. Mackey.  Wallace advanced from 8th to 7th and Yelton from 9th to 8th.  Truex fell back two spots to ninth and McReynolds lands in the 10th spot.  


The heat is on and it is only going to intensify from here on out in the next five races to the championship.  It is any mans game at this point and with the shuffling around as of the last few weeks there is no prediction of who can pull it off. 


Several of the local favorites will be on hand to challenge the STARS.  Two former UARA champions are rumored to be planning on taking on the challenge:  Matt McCall and Lee Tissot.  Both of these drivers have had great success not only with the UARA but also at Tri County Speedway. 


Racing along with the STARS will be the Street Stock cars running a special 50 lap feature with an increased purse to add to the excitement.  The night will close out with a 15 lap Road Rage race.
