Rodney Wing Gets First Career PRO Series Win at Magnolia Motor Speedway

November 28th, 2010

Columbus, Mississippi – Whynot Motorsports Park promoter, Rodney Wing, continued his torrid late season pace behind the wheel of a Thrash Motorsports entry as he powered the #1c Thrash Motorsports/ Rocket Super Late Model to the $2,000 PRO Dirt Car Series feature win at Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi) on Saturday night.

Forty-eight Super Late Models entered the event as first year Super Late Model racer, Jason Brock, blazed to the Southern Belle Pole Award in time trials. He was joined on the front row for the feature event by fellow first year, Super Late Model racer, TK King from Columbus, Mississippi. At the drop of the green flag in the feature, Brock would bolt to the top spot with David Breazeale and Rodney Wing in pursuit as King began to fade.

Jason Brock held the top spot during the early laps of the event as Wing moved past Breazeale to take the second spot on lap four, and one lap later Wing would use a power move on the high side exiting turn four to take the lead from Brock as Breazeale began to work on Brock for second.

The leaders would enter lapped traffic by lap ten and the next five laps would see great racing through lapped traffic before the first caution of the event waved on lap 15 for Scott Flurry, who made hard contact with the turn four wall, bringing his night to an early end.

With Wing at the point and Breazeale and Jason Brock in tow the event got back underway as Neil Baggett launched himself from the fifth spot to the second spot on the restart. Baggett would start to reel in the leader before the caution flew on lap 19 for fourth running, Dane Dacus, who saw his night come to an end after hard contact with the turn four wall.

The top five running order for the restart consisted of Wing, Baggett, Breazeale, Wade Byars, and Jake Knight.

On the restart the running order would remain the same as the event would see a five lap run before the final caution flew on lap 25 as Tony Morris duplicated the feats of other competitors in the feature by making hard contact with the turn four wall.

As the field went green for the final time, it appeared that Rodney Wing was on his way to the comfortable win, but Baggett and Thrash would have other ideas as they caught the leader by lap 30 as they battled side-by-side for the second spot. Breazeale cleared Baggett with three laps to go as he set his sights on the leader. However, Wing would go on to lead the finals laps to claim the win over David Breazeale, Neil Baggett, Wade Byars, and Mathew Turner.

The PRO Dirt Car Series will wrap up their 2010 season on Sunday afternoon with a $3,000 to win/$200 to start, 40 lap event at Magnolia Motor Speedway. Gates open at 10a.m. with the driver’s meeting at 1pm and racing action to follow.

Bub McCool Has Strong Run At Commonwealth 100; Returns To Lucas Action

April 24th, 2010

Vicksburg, MS – Even though his final finishing position didn’t tell the whole story, Bub McCool enjoyed a strong run over the weekend in his #57J McCool Logging/Trakstar/Jay Dickens Racing Engine Super Late Model in the Commonwealth 100 at Virginia Motor Speedway.

After spending a few weeks away from the track, Bub traveled to Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, Virginia for the $25,000 to win/$2,000 to start, Commonwealth 100, which was sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Super Late Models. McCool started the weekend in strong fashion by recording the 9th fastest lap in time trials among the stout field of 56 entries. Via his qualifying effort, Bub started second in his heat race and battled leader, Tim McCreadie for the entire race before recording a 2nd place finish. Via his second place finish, Bub locked into Saturday night’s main event in the 9th starting spot. In an event that was marred by tire issues for almost every driver, McCool would battle throughout the top ten for the entire event and was running 8th with only seven laps remaining when he had a tire go flat, which would relegate him to a 15th place finish.

“It was disappointing to not get the top ten finish because of the flat tire late in the race, but I was still excited with the weekend that our team put together,” commented McCool.

This weekend, April 23rd-24th, McCool Motorsports will return to action with the Lucas Oil Late Model Series in a pair of events on the East Coast on big fast, half mile tracks.

April 13th, 2010

West Memphis, Arkansas – In 2009, Billy Moyer Jr. picked up his first ever special event win at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Arkansas, and on Saturday night he returned to the scene of the crime and made a repeat performance in COMP Cams MSRA Super Late Model action.

Twenty-five Super Late Models, representing five states, were on hand on Saturday night at Riverside International Speedway, where a great racing surface greeted the competitors. Joey Mack from Benton, Missouri powered his #97m Rocket Chassis to a heat race win and along the way accumulated the most passing points to earn the JFR Graphics Pole Position for the $2,000 to
win, 40 lap feature. East Prairie, Missouri driver, Jeff Sloan joined Mack on the front row.

As the green flag flew Mack bolted to the lead with Jeff Floyd, Billy Moyer Jr., Jamie Dacus, and Sloan in tow. The first caution flag of the event would fly on lap 3 as Dewaine Hottinger slowed with a flat tire after contact with another competitor. At the time of the caution the top five running order consisted of Mack, Floyd, Moyer Jr., Dacus, and Sloan.

On the ensuing restart, Moyer Jr. would move past Floyd for the second spot as he set his sights on the leader. Three laps later, Moyer Jr. would pull even with Mack for the top spot and would finally take the lead exiting turn four on the sixth circuit. As Moyer Jr. took possession of the top spot, Mack and Floyd began battling side by side for the second spot, and by lap 9, Floyd would make the runner-up position his own.

The leaders would encounter lapped traffic by lap 10, which allowed Floyd to close in on Moyer Jr. Moyer Jr. would narrowly avoid disaster exiting turn four on lap 11, when he attempted to lap Jon Kirby on the lowside as Kirby tried to turn into the infield. After minimal contact Moyer Jr. would recover, but not before Jeff Floyd raced past him for the lead. The top duo
would continue to navigate heavy traffic, and on lap 16 Moyer Jr. would find his way back to the lead as Floyd slipped to the second spot with Dacus and Mack battling for the third spot.

The race would continue to endure a long green flag run until Cody Caldwell brought out the caution on lap 25. As the field prepared for what would be the final restart, the top five running order consisted of Moyer Jr., Floyd, Dacus, Mack, and Jon Mitchell. On the restart, Floyd’s hopes for victory would go up in smoke as the powerplant expired in his entry sending him to the infield. With Floyd pitside, Dacus moved up to second, but Moyer Jr. had already begun to drive away from the field. With Moyer Jr. enjoying a comfortable lead, a man on the move was 16th starting Kyle Beard, who was up to the 6th position by lap 30. Over the next few laps he would get to the 4th position.

The remainder of the event would go caution free with Billy Moyer Jr. picking up his second win of the weekend, and fourth career COMP Cams MSRA Super Late Model win. Jamie Dacus, Joey Mack, Kyle Beard, and Austin Rettig rounded out the top five finishers.

Heat races were won by Joey Mack, Jeff Sloan, Billy James, and Jeff Floyd. Cody Caldwell and Kyle Beard topped the twin b-mains.

Anthony Burroughs Eager For P.R.O. Event At North Alabama Speedway

March 20th, 2010

Muscle Shoals, Alabama –Anthony Burroughs get excited any chance that he gets to return to North Alabama Speedway and given the torrid start to the 2010 season, he is especially eager to take his #121 ALT Transportation/Mastersbilt By Stuckey/Wall-2-Wall Racing Engine Super Late Model into battle at the ¼ mile oval this Saturday night.

Last weekend, the team set out to compete in a pair of events. However, after having the Southern All Stars Friday night show at Boyd’s Raceway (Ringgold, Georgia) nixed by Mother Nature, Burroughs entered a single event over the weekend as he entered the Promoters Racing Organization (P.R.O.) Super Late Model Series opener at Columbus Speedway in Columbus, Mississippi on Saturday night, which was also co-sanctioned by the NeSmith Super Dirt Car Series. A stellar field of 38 Super Late Models entered the event at the 1/3 mile, clay oval. With group qualifying in effect, Anthony qualified sixth fastest in his group to earn the four starting spot in his qualifier. He would go on to advance to a third place finish in the qualifier, which gave him the 13th starting position for the 40 lap, $2,000 to win event. During the race’s early stages, Burroughs would slowly begin to work his way to the front, and by the race’s midpoint he was up to 8th. Over the final half of the race, the handling on the #121 Mastersbilt began to come to Anthony, and he would motor his way to a third place finish behind event winner, Chris Wall, and Chad Thrash.

With the opening weekend for the two series’ in the books, Anthony currently sits third in the P.R.O. Super Dirt Car Series standings and is the point’s leader in the national points for the NeSmith Super Dirt Car Series. Burroughs and ALT Motorsports are preparing for another busy weekend. Friday night’s plans are up in the air as the team may enter the $5,000 to win, Southern All Star Super Late Model event at Boyds Speedway in Ringgold, Georgia or they may just do some testing in the open practice session at North Alabama Speedway.

On Saturday, March 20th the team will definitely be in action with the $2,000 to win event at North Alabama Speedway, which will be co-sanctioned by the P.R.O.

Chad Thrash Hard Charges To 2nd In Columbus Barn-Burner

March 20th, 2010

Meridian, Mississippi – The evening may have gotten off to a slow start for Chad Thrash in his #1c Tomkat of Chunky/Rocket/Jay Dickens Racing Engine Super Late Model, but by the time the dust settled on the Bullring Bash at Columbus Speedway on Saturday, he had a big smile on his face.

Thrash Motorsports originally planned to travel to Cleveland Speedway (Cleveland, Tennessee) on Saturday night for the $10,000 to win Southern All Star event, but inclement weather forced the cancellation of the event. As a result, the team made the last minute decision to invade Columbus Speedway in Columbus, Mississippi for the $2,000 to win, P.R.O. Super Late Model Series event. Thirty-eight Super Late Models entered the event, and early in the night, Thrash got behind the eight ball by struggling in time trials. After qualifying seventh fastest in his group, he started fifth in a qualifier. He finished 4th in the qualifier, which gave him the 16th starting spot for the 40 lap feature.

For the feature event, Thrash Motorsports would make several adjustments on the car, and the end result was an incredible march through the field. As the main event got underway, Thrash began working the lowside, and slowly began picking off spots. By the time that a caution flew at the race’s midway point, Chad sat in the 11th position. The next ten laps of the feature would see Thrash beginning to make a lot of noise as he cracked the top five by lap 29, and four laps later he would move past Anthony Burroughs for the second spot as he set his sights on the leader, Chris Wall. However, with only seven laps remaining, and Wall holding a straight away lead, Chad would not be able to catch the leader before the checkered flag
fell. He would go on to record a great second place finish behind event winner, Chris Wall.

“If I can ever figure out how to qualify at that place, we are going to be in business. We got behind the eight-ball early in the night, but the team never gave up. I don’t think we were any better than Wall, but I would’ve loved to have seen a late race caution to take a shot,” commented Thrash.

Chad will take the upcoming weekend off from racing before returning to action on Saturday, March 27th in the $2,500 to win, Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series (MSCCS) event at Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian, Mississippi. For more information on the event, please visit http://www.whynotmotorsportspark.com/ and http://www.stateseries.com/.

Chad Thrash would like to thank all of his sponsors including Structural Steel, Tomkat of Chunky, Creel Brothers LLC, Sign Plant, Jay Dickens Racing Engines, Simpson Racing Products, MSRMafia.com, Stuckey Race Products, Wrisco, TWM, Xtreme Graphics By J-Rod, and Hoosier Racing Tires.

The $5,000 to win/$700 to start event drew thirty Super Late Models. Anthony qualified third fastest in his group to earn the third starting spot for their heat race event. Burroughs battled for the second
position for the duration of the event before settling for a third place finish, which earned him the eleventh starting spot for the 100 lap main event on Saturday night. In the main event feature, Burroughs slowly picked off cars during the race’s early stages and was up to the 7th position on lap 41, when he clipped an infield berm, causing him to spin. After going to the back of the pack, he would charge back to a 5th place finish over the last half of the race. For their first time at the facility, the team was
extremely satisfied with their performance!

Alexander & Davis Mow Down Competition in Grass Root Nationals

October 9th, 2009

West Memphis, Arkansas – On Saturday night, the 3rd Annual COMP Cams Grass Root Nationals Presented By MidSouthRacing.com was held at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Arkansas with a good crowd in the stands and a full pit area.

The TCI Automotive Street Stock division was in action battling for a $1,000 top prize. Forty-two entries from three states entered the event with Greg Alexander from Blytheville, Arkansas earning the R.E. Technologies/Ray’s Auto Collision Fast Qualifier honors. Alexander drew a one car inversion for heat race action, and as a result all heat races started without any inversion.

Greg Alexander, Lance O’Brien, Terry Gray, Justin Glover, and Mike Bowles all claimed heat race wins with Alexander and O’Brien earning the front row for the 20 lap feature event.

In the feature Alexander took the lead at the drop of the green flag with O’Brien, Glover, and Gray in pursuit. The first twelve laps of the event would go caution free as Alexander maintained the top spot with second through fifth positions being hotly contested as the leaders battled through lap traffic. Lap twelve would see the caution flag wave as Terry Gray’s night came to an end with mechanical woes.

On the ensuing restart, Alexander motored away from the field and would build as much as a half a straightaway lead before O’Brien started reeling in the leader. With five laps to go, O’Brien was on Alexander’s rear bumper and would pressure him to the checkered flag, but was unable to make the pass. Following Alexander and O’Brien across the finish line were Justin Glover, James Godsey, and Bud Ward.

The Racing Head Service 305 Wingless Sprint Car division saw twenty-three competitors sign in to battle for the $1,000 top prize. Jan Howard from Byhalia, Mississippi started the night by becoming the R.E. Technologies Fast Qualifier. Jan drew an inversion of four cars for heat race action.

Dale Howard, Dalton Davis, and Corey Ray each picked up wins in heat race action with Howard and Davis earning the front row for the main event. Davis took the lead at the onset of the feature with Dale Howard, Corey Ray, Henry Gustavus Jr., and Jan Howard in tow. The early stages of the event would be plagued by several cautions and red flags including flips by Ryan Harrison and Jan Howard, and as a result the distance would be shortened by five laps to a distance of 20 laps.

Dalton Davis went on to pick up the win in his #12 Maxim over Dale Howard, Henry Gustavus Jr., Corey Ray, and Troy Dow. The $1,000 payday was the richest of his young career.

Special thanks to all of the sponsors, who made the 3rd Annual COMP Cams Grass Root Nationals Presented By MidSouthRacing.com a great success. These sponsors include COMP Cams, MidSouthRacing.com, Lucas Oil Products, Lunati
Cams, Holley Carburetors, 45 Race Shop, Stinson Industrial, R.E. Technologies, Racing Head Service, Ray’s Auto Collision, TCI Automotive, Riverside International Speedway, Provence Signs, and MSRMafia.com .

Trumann, AR – Kyle Beard will ride his trusty #86 Beard Motorsports/GRT By Frye/Samuels Performance Racing Engine Super Late Model into battle this Sunday, September 6th in the $5,000 to win event at North Alabama Speedway in Tuscumbia, Alabama.

Last weekend, Kyle entered a single event as he traveled to I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Arkansas for an O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Model event on Saturday, August 29th. Twenty-three entries were on hand for the $2,000 to win event, and after starting second in his heat race, Kyle charged to a convincing win to earn the pole position for the 40 lap feature event. In the main event, Kyle would start alongside Robert Lovette, and would lead the first seven laps before Wendell Wallace used the low groove to slip by in lapped traffic for the lead. Beard would maintain the second spot in an event only slowed once by the caution flag and recorded a second place finish behind Wallace. With three events remaining in the 2009 O’Reilly MSRA campaign, Kyle narrowed the gap between himself and Billy Moyer Jr. in the point’s chase as Kyle now trails the leader by 75 points.

The team is planning on traveling to North Alabama Speedway in Tuscumbia, Alabama on Sunday, September 6th for a $5,000 to win/$300 to start, 50 lap event. The Bama Brawl event will be sanctioned by the Long Lewis Ford Bama Super Series and will mark the second BSS event that Kyle has entered in 2009 as he recorded a 12th place finish at North Alabama Speedway back in

Mr. Smooth Cruises To O’Reilly MSRA Win At Batesville Motor Speedway

July 29th, 2009

Locust Grove, Arkansas – Everyone knows the old saying that “there is no place like home,” and for Billy Moyer on Saturday night at Batesville Motor Speedway in Locust Grove, Arkansas nothing was more true as he claimed the $2,500 prize in the O’Reilly MSRA/O’Reilly MARS Clash.

A star-studded field of 30 Super Late Models turned out for the second night of the O’Reilly MSRA/O’Reilly MARS Clash at the racy, 3/8 mile oval. After charging from the third starting position to win his heat race, Jeff Taylor from Jonesboro, Arkansas earned the JFR Graphics Pole Qualifier Award in his #5 Larry Shaw Race Car/Keith Craft Racing Engine Super Late Model. Jeremy Payne from Springfield, Missouri started outside front row for the 35 lap event. As the field came to the green Payne powered his way to the lead with Taylor, Billy Moyer, and Will Vaught in tow. Lap 2 would see Moyer move past Taylor for the second spot as he set his sights on the leader, Payne. As Payne and Moyer motored away from the field, several great battles raged behind them with Taylor and Vaught battling side by side for the third spot and Billy Moyer Jr. and Kyle Beard battling side by side for fifth.

The first eight laps would go caution free before Jon Mitchell rolled to a stop down the front stretch, bringing out the event’s lone caution. At the time of the caution, the top five running order consisted of Payne, Moyer, Vaught, Taylor, and Beard.

On the ensuing restart Payne extended his lead to two car lengths with Moyer in tow. The big mover and shaker on the restart was Terry Phillips who moved from 7th to the third position by lap ten as he began to reel in the leaders. Lap 12 would see Payne slip high out of turn four allowing Moyer to slip by on the low side to take over the top spot. As Moyer assumed the point, Payne fell back into the grips of teammate, Terry Phillips, as they began to duel side by side for second. Phillips would clear Payne for the second spot on lap 19. Over the next few laps, Phillips would erase Moyer’s straight away lead, and looked to be set to make a move on the top spot on lap 25 before the lapped car of Ray Moore nixed Phillips’ momentum causing him to fall back several car lengths from the leader.

Billy Moyer would go on to lead the remaining laps en route to the $2,500 payday, which made him the 9th different winner on the O’Reilly MSRA tour in 2009. Terry Phillps, Jeremy Payne, Bill Frye (started 14th), and Brandon McCormick rounded out the top five.

Heat races for the thirty car field were topped by Jeremy Payne, Jeff Taylor, Billy Moyer, and Will Vaught. The twin b-main events were claimed by Wendell Wallace and Jon Mitchell.

Bill Frye received the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charge Award for advancing from his 14th starting position to a 4th place finish.
The Quartermaster Hard Luck Award went to Jon Mitchell, who had mechanical woes bring his night to an early end on lap nine.

O’Reilly MSRA provisionals went to Dewaine Hottinger and Ray Moore. O’Reilly MARS provisionals went to Darrell Mooneyham and Leroy Johnson. Billy Moyer earned the COMP Cams Winner’s Circle Bonus.

Barton wins, record falls at Meridian

July 17th, 2009

MERIDIAN, Idaho — Hard work paid off for Joe Barton during the Project Filter 150 Late Model Lites show during military appreciation night at Meridian Speedway.

He backed up a preliminary victory Saturday night by weaving to the lead and an eventual victory in the 75-lap final segment. The season points leader drove past fellow Nampa, Idaho, racer Shaun Tubbs near the midway point of the race to complete a patient rise from a fourth-place starting position then drove away with a win.

The night was punctuated by record-fast qualifying in Street Stocks, with the track record falling three times. Points leader Jaramie Fuss of Kuna, Idaho, was the first driver to time in and promptly shattered the track record for fastest lap by a Street Stock with a 15.471-second tour of the quarter-mile. The previous record was 15.576. But by the end of the 23-car qualifying session, Fuss’ record was old, too.

Nampa’s Melissa Scott broke the Fuss mark with a 15.397 on her first lap then cemented her name in the record book with a 15.315 final lap.

In other main events, Nampan Chris Ratterree took advantage of bad luck on the part of Sierra Jackson of Middleton, Idaho, to pick up an easy victory in the 30-lap Winged Sprints feature; Kyle Burril of Boise, Idaho, ran away from the field in the Super Stocks; Nyssa, Ore.’s Steve Bosselman won the 30-lap Street Stocks main; Boise, Idaho’s Travis Anderson held off Salt Lake City, Utah, driver Ryan Byrd throughout the Legends finale; Roy Cleaver collected a victory in the Thunder Dogs; and Boise 12-year-old Andrew Clark won the Jr. Stingers race, pacing the largest field of young drivers thus far in 2009 at Meridian.

Next Saturday, the Intermountain Vintage Sprintcars return for their second visit of the season at Meridian Speedway. Visit www.meridianspeedway.com for more information.

Barton’s 75-lap victory in the last Late Model Lites segment of the night capped an outing in which he finished either first or second in all three races.

The Late Model Lites drivers put together a show of hard driving in their first 50 laps on the quarter-mile oval.

In the second batch of 25 laps, hometown driver Kale Freedman sailed to a victory while the rest of the field spun and hammered one another behind him. Barton was runner-up in the second go-round after battling West Jordan, Utah, driver Kurt Madsen. Barton pulled ahead when Madsen got stuck behind the lapped car of Chet Thorson (Eagle, Idaho) in the final turn of the final lap. Madsen was docked three positions in the final standings for rough driving — moving him out of the top five — after he spun Thorson at the start-finish line.

In the first 25-lap segment race for the Project Filter 150, Barton worked his way from the back row through a 15-car field to win. Barton checked and won by several car lengths, while the real action was for fourth place in the waning laps. Tubbs traded spots with Jordan Fitch three times in the final seven laps (and twice in the final three) to grab fourth place.

Burril posted a 5.5-second margin of victory in the Super Stocks, leaving the second- through fifth-place drivers to set up their own race. Meridian, Idaho’s Les Schild finished second, and Gale Carter held on to third after fending off an early challenge from Kuna’s Troy Evans. Burril led most of the race after finishing fifth in his heat race. Schild won that preliminary, while Evans picked up the victory in the other heat.

Bosselman won the Street Stocks main event on a night that was dominated by racers who weren’t in the top five in points. Grand View, Idaho’s Bill Lawrence started on the pole after winning his heat, but Bosselman took the lead soon after the green flag dropped. He held off fierce pursuits by Dave Short of Meridian and Chad Bess of Nampa — both in the championship hunt. Short ran out of track in the final turn with Bosselman bearing down on slower lapped traffic.

Fuss retained his points lead in Street Stocks in spite of a challenging night in the pits. An engine part disintegrated during the day, forcing his crew and nearby racing colleagues to tear down and rebuild the top half of the engine at least twice. Fuss finished fourth, one spot ahead of Marv Weaver of Nampa to keep his advantage over the veteran in the points chase.

Anderson padded his series lead in the Legends, driving to the front on the first lap and staying there for 30 laps. After each caution flag, he got the jump on the restart to thwart any challenges.

Driving a car owned by veteran Thunder Dog racer R.J. Lewis, Cleaver drove to victory in a 20-lap feature, beating season points leader Tommy White of Boise. The race was relatively clean except for a car called the Rodeo Clown (an old Isuzu Rodeo) spinning out twice and trying to go around several other times.

Clark, the youngest driver walking through the pits Saturday night, showed off great driving skills in winning the 15-lap Jr. Stingers race. The Jr. Stingers are full-size cars raced by pre-teens and drivers in their early teen years. Four of the six racers Saturday were 12 years old, and young racers are encouraged to get involved with the sport. Call the speedway at (208) 888-2813 for information.

Before the racing action began, the Meridian Speedway staff and fans paid tribute to military personnel by introducing various units based in the Treasure Valley, including Mountain Home Air Force Base and Idaho National Guard outfits that have been deployed during the War on Terror.

The tribute included an invocation delivered by Lt. Col. David Tish of the Idaho National Guard 116th Combat Brigade, the National Anthem sang by Staff Sgt. Rosalei Bedke of the 25th Army Band, a color guard from the Idaho National Guard Honors Platoon and a flyover by a Blackhawk helicopter and an Apache helicopter.

Meridian Mayor Tammy DeWeerd also was part of the opening ceremonies before the first 25-lap segment race for the Late Model Lites.

Beebe, Arkansas – Less than twenty-four hours after picking up his first O’Reilly MSRA triumph of 2009 Bill Frye doubled his pleasure by piloting his #66 GRT By Frye/Kuntz & Company Racing Engine Super Late Model to another $2,000 win at 67 Speedway in Texarkana, Arkansas on Saturday night, July 11th.

For the second straight night, twenty-one Super Late Models representing five states entered the $2,000 to win/$300 to start event. Jeff Floyd accumulated the most points in heat race action and earned the JFR Graphics Pole Award for the 40 lap feature event. Dewaine Hottinger accumulated the second most points in his qualifier and started outside front row for the main event.

Hottinger would take command of the lead at the outset of the feature event with Jeff Floyd and Bill Frye in tow. Hottinger built a five car length advantage during the race’s early stages as Floyd and Frye began to host a spirited battle for the second position. By lap ten, Frye would dispose of Floyd and began reel in Hottinger. Three laps later on the thirteenth circuit Frye would overtake Hottinger for the top spot. As Frye began to motor away from the field, there was great side-by-side racing throughout
the field on a very well prepared ¼ mile oval.

Frye would go on to lead the final seventeen laps in the caution free event to claim his second straight O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Model feature win. Jeff Floyd, Michael Murphree (started 7th), Kyle Beard, and Billy Moyer Jr. rounded out the top five finishers.

2008 O’Reilly MSRA Kuntz and Co. Rookie of the Year, Jon Kirby, received the Quartermaster Hard Luck Award after mechanical woes brought his night to an early end.

Bill Frye was the COMP Cams Top Performer.

Heat races for the 21 car field were won by Jeff Floyd, Bill Frye, and Dewaine Hottinger.

April 21st, 2009

Beebe, Arkansas – Eric Turner didn’t allow his 10th starting position to hold him back as he charged his way to the front and took the win in the 40 lap, $2,000 to win O’Reilly MSRA Vs. O’Reilly MARS Super Late model event on Saturday night at West Plains Motor Speedway in West Plains, Missouri.

For the second night in a row, the O’Reilly MSRA tour was faced with threatening skies and a far from favorable forecast. However, despite a few light showers during the course of the event, the show went on, and what an incredible show it turned out to be.

After charging from 6th to 1st in his heat race, current O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Model point’s leader, Billy Moyer Jr. from Batesville, Arkansas earned the JFR Graphics Pole Sitter Award for the 40 lap, $2,000 to win feature event with Will Vaught starting to his outside on a lightning fast race track.

At the drop of the green flag, Vaught took control of the lead with Moyer Jr., Jeremy Payne, Terry Phillips, and Brad Looney in tow. As the leaders diced up things at the front of the pack, the man on the move was 10th starting, Eric Turner, who was already up to the 5th position within the first 10 laps in a race that saw two and three wide racing throughout the field.

Vaught would maintain the top spot through the early stages of the event, however by lap 17 the handling had begun to go away on his mount, and Turner rocketed past him to take over the top spot as the field completed lap 18. Turner would go on to lead the remainder of the event en route to his first ever O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Model win over Jeremy Payne, Terry Phillips,
Jeff Floyd, and Billy Moyer Jr.

Heat race wins for the 31 car field were claimed by Billy Moyer Jr., Will Vaught, Brad Looney, and Jeremy Payne. The twin b-mains were won by Jack Sullivan and Gary Stolba.

Jeff Floyd was the recipient of the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award after advancing from his 11th starting position to a 4th place finish in a talent-laden field.

2009 Kuntz & Co. Rookie of the Year candidate, Gary Scott Christian from Broken Bow, Oklahoma, had a terrible start to the evening when the engine in his #58x expired in hot laps bringing his night to an early end. He received the Quarter Master Hard Luck Award.

Wendell Wallace Wins Again in O’Reilly MSRA Action

April 20th, 2009

Beebe, Arkansas – Wendell Wallace became the first repeat winner of the 2009 O’Reilly MSRA season as he took control of the top spot from Eric Turner on lap 22 and never looked back en route to his second tour win of 2009, which was worth $2,000!

Despite threatening skies and a less than favorable forecast, a stout contingent of 31 Super Late Models, representing six states, and a big crowd in the stands were on hand for the $2,000 to win/$400 to start event at Beebe Speedway, which featured a clash between the O’Reilly MSRA and O’Reilly MARS Super Late Model tours.

Jeff Moss from Harrisburg, Arkansas earned the most points in heat race action and was the JFR Graphics Pole Qualifier in his #2 Mastersbilt/Jay Dickens Racing Engine entry. He was joined on the front row by Hermitage, Missouri’s Eric Turner. At the drop of the green flag in the 40 lap event, Turner snagged the whole shot, leading the field into turn one with Moss, Tony Jackson Jr., and Wendell Wallace in tow.

Turner would lead the early laps as Wallace methodically worked his way past Moss and Jackson Jr. to advance to the second spot by lap 5 as he began his pursuit of the race leader. By lap 16 the field was approaching lapped traffic with Turner, Wallace, and Jackson Jr. nose to tail for the top three spots. Two drivers on the move were Kyle Beard (started 8th) and Ray Moore (started 7th), who had worked their way into the fourth and fifth spots respectively by the race’s midway point.

As the leaders diced through lapped traffic, Wallace began to apply heavy pressure to Turner for the top spot, and on lap 22, Wallace would use a strong run exiting turn two to take over the lead. Turner would slip back to the clutches of Jackson Jr., Beard, and Moore.

Two laps later, Beard would race his way past Jackson Jr. for third as Wallace and Turner continued to battle for the top spot. The race would continue to maintain caution free, and with five laps to go Beard tried a daring move to snag the lead on the outside of turns three and four. However, with limited grip on the high-side, he would fall back three spots as Jackson Jr., Moore, and ninth starting, Jon Kirby rocketed past him on the low side.

Wallace would go on to lead the last few laps in the caution free event to claim the $2,000 payday, which was his second tour triumph of the 2009 season. Eric Turner, Tony Jackson Jr., Ray Moore, and Jon Kirby rounded out the top five in the final running order.

Heat races were claimed by Jeff Moss, Eric Turner, Tony Jackson Jr., and Wendell Wallace with Jack Sullivan and Terry Phillips claiming the twin b-mains.

2008 O’Reilly MSRA Kuntz & Company Rookie of the Year, Jon Kirby from Russellville, Arkansas, claimed the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger after advancing from his 9th starting position to a 5th place finish in the 40 lap event.

Bill Frye was the recipient of the Quartermaster Hard Luck Award as vibrations in his #66 GRT brought his night to an early end in the feature..

Wendell Wallace was the COMP Cams Top Performer for the event.

Joey Mack and Randy Mitchell utilized O’Reilly MSRA provisionals to start the main event, while Brandon McCormick and Darrell Mooneyham used O’Reilly SUPR provisionals for the feature.
