Chris Brown Bags $10,000 Prize in Street Stock World Championship

October 23rd, 2016

Spring, Texas – Chris Brown may have limited starts in a Street Stock throughout his career, but that didn’t stop him from picking up the $10,000 victory on Saturday in NeSmith Performance Street Stock World Championship at Golden Isles Speedway.

“The whole sequence of events from us getting the idea to build a car to actually building the car to me racing it just seems like a blur,” laughed Brown. “We literally came up with the idea to build this car about four weeks ago. A lot of people thought we were crazy, and that there was no way we would get it done in time, but we did – and we won.”

Brown concluded by saying, “I just want to thank everyone that helped make this possible. So many people worked tirelessly to turn this crazy idea into a reality, and I want to thank them all for the opportunity. I would like to thank car owner Jesse McNorton, Innovative Race Cars, Hendren Race Engines, Performance Graphix, Afco Brakes, Beyea Headers, Fast Shafts, Day Motorsports, AR Bodies, Shocks by Chris Brown Racing, Keyser Manufacturing, Wehrs Machine, and Hoosier Tire. This was truly a group effort.

Behind the wheel of the Innovative Race Car #17B Street Stock, Chris Brown headed to Golden Isles Speedway (Brunswick, Georgia) on Friday night for the two-day, inaugural NeSmith Street Stock World Championship.

With 50 cars registered for the Showdown on the Coast, Brown started the weekend by setting overall fast time and then backing it with a heat race win, which positioned him on the pole for the main event on Saturday night. Bringing home his first victory of the season, Brown outdueled a talented field of competitors in the finale to pick up a $10,000 payday.

Full results from the event are available atwww.GoldenIslesSpeedway.com .

Next on tap for Chris will be a trip to Southern New Mexico Speedway (Las Cruces, New Mexico) on October 20-23 to compete in the 17th annual USRA Modified Fall Nationals. The event will be capped by a $10,000-to-win finale. For more information on the event, please visitwww.SNMSpeedway.com .

Richards Grabs Georgia Boot Super Bowl of Racing Finale

February 9th, 2016

BRUNSWICK, GA -On Sunday afternoon at Golden Isles Speedway, Josh Richards takes the $15,000 finale of the Georgia Boot Super Bowl of Racing. The event was sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.

Jonathan Davenport, the reigning LOLMDS National Champion made a valiant effort on the final lap to pass Richards, but he spun allowing Richards to take the checkers first for the second time this weekend. Jared Landers slipped by Davenport for second, while Davenport re-gained control of his car to cross the line in third. Scott Bloomquist was fourth, followed by Eddie Carrier Jr.

Davenport led the first lap of the 60-lap event before Richards grabbed the lead on lap two. Richards then held the top spot over Davenport until lap 35 when Davenport was able to forge back into the lead. The two then dueled as Richards rallied back into the lead for good on lap 46.

“I kept watching the crew guys that were giving me signals. I knew he [Davenport] was still close when I was leading. He [Davenport] actually helped me when he passed me because he showed me another line. For a day race, the track had plenty of grip to it. I was conserving my tires, I didn’t know if they would last, but they did. The track crew did a great job with the track! To win twice down here, it’s a great start to the season”

“Thanks to Valvoline, Seubert Calf Ranches, Integra, Sunoco, Ace Metal Works, Hoosier Tires, Sallack Well Services, Petroff Towing, and Andy Durham of Durham Racing Engines.” Landers was able to sneak by Davenport in the final corner to nab a second-place finish. “We have had a good car all weekend,” said the race runner-up. For a day race, the track was in really good shape, we could run anywhere on it! We went with a softer compound tire and it held up really well.”

“I’d like to thank everyone at Crop Production Services, Mark Martin Automotive, ASC Warranty, Big Dog Motorsports, Bad Boy Mowers, Sweet-Bloomquist Chassis, and Durham Race Engines. I think this is the best points start we have ever had!” Davenport gave Richards one final shot heading to the checked flag, but ended up getting sideways. He stopped momentarily and re-gained control as the race stayed green to the finish. “It’s Super Bowl Sunday so I was going for the win! I got in the corner and was already committed and it just turned on me. We were fortunate to finish third. I am glad we didn’t lose any more points than we did.”

“The track crew did a great job with the track today. Turns one and two were a little slick, but we could run into turns three and four pretty hard. I want to thank Kevin and Lee Roy Rumley. Today is Lee Roy’s 80th birthday and like last year, was hoping to bring him home a win.”

Completing the top ten were Tim McCreadie, Dennis Erb Jr., Brandon Sheppard, Devin Moran, and Darrell Lanigan.
In preliminary action, Brian Shirley set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group B) amongst the 42 entrants, with a lap of 15.231 seconds. Jonathan Davenport set the fastest time in Group A with a time of 15.240 seconds. Jonathan Davenport, Jared Landers, Brian Shirley, and Josh Richards won their respective heat races. Chris Madden won the B-Main.

Davenport Dominates Edwin Coggins Memorial at Golden Isles

February 8th, 2016

BRUNSWICK, GA–The reigning Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion, Jonathan Davenport led all 30 laps to win the Edwin Coggins Memorial on Saturday afternoon at Golden Isles Speedway. Davenport would get the jump on last night’s winner, Josh Richards to the lead at the outset of the feature. Brian Shirley would get by Richards on the opening- lap and hold the position until the checkered flag, barely edging Richards at the finish line. Jared Landers and 11th starting Steve Francis rounded out the top five. “The whole key to the race was the start. I knew I had to beat Josh off the start. We found a rubber streak there that helped us in lapped traffic, I was a little nervous trying to get by those guys. I finally decided to get to the outside and go by them because I knew the guys behind me were probably pretty close”

“We couldn’t do this without the help of a lot of people. Troy Baird of Baird Transport, Bryson Motorsports, Mac Trailers, and everybody else that supports us. We still have work to do. But it’s a big confidence boost for the team.” Shirley, who started third dived below Richards on the start to grab the runner-up spot, a position he held for the remainder of the race, was pleased with his car. “It’s a good start to the year. A lot of guys back home have stepped up and supported us this year. I have to thank Bob Cullen, Arnie Ranta, Thomason Express and Cheap Cars for their assistance.” “I could have pushed the issue in traffic but I didn’t want to tear up the car.

I wanted to save it for the bigger money tonight. Josh almost got me there at the finish. I am glad we were able to hold him off,” said the driver of the Longhorn, Pro Powered Chevrolet 3S. Richards, who was looking to start the weekend with back-to-back wins, came home third. “We have been testing for a while now on this car. We just let it sit today and didn’t make any changes for the day race. The lapped traffic got a little hairy out there. Once Davenport was clear of traffic it was over. It was a good finish there between Brian and me.” Completing the top ten were Chris Madden, Eddie Carrier Jr., Brandon Sheppard, Tim McCreadie, and Earl Pearson, Jr.

In preliminary action, Jonathan Davenport set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group B) amongst the 41 entrants, with a lap of 15.377 seconds. Josh Richards set the fastest time in Group A with a time of 15.675 seconds. Josh Richards, Brian Shirley, Jonathan Davenport and Brandon Sheppard won their respective heat races. Earl Pearson Jr. and Scott Bloomquist won their respective B-Mains.

Richards Holds off Sheppard to Win at Golden Isles

February 8th, 2016

BRUNSWICK, GA – Josh Richards held off a late race charge from Brandon Sheppard to win on the opening night of the Georgia Boot Super Bowl of Racing at Golden Isles Speedway on Friday Night. Richards led but all but one lap on his way to victory in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event.

Sheppard; the 2015 LOLMDS Rookie of the Year; briefly took the lead from Richards with four laps to go, but Richards regained the top spot moments later and went on for his seventh career LOLMDS win. Sheppard crossed the line a car length and a half behind in second, followed by; last year’s series champion; Jonathan Davenport, Jared Landers, and Chris Madden.

“We had a pretty decent car the whole race,” said 28-year-old Richards. I was concerned about tire wear tonight; I felt like they were giving up towards the end. When we got into traffic, we were able to run the top around those guys in clean air and a clean track, which sure helped us, because those running behind me didn’t have that advantage.”

“When I saw Brandon get by me, I went into turn one, and I didn’t want to get into him. His car drifted up and I was able to get back around him. Brandon is a great kid. We have been friends for a long-time. What a way to start the New Year with these Rocket XR1 cars finishing first and second.”

“I would like to thank my dad, and all of my crew. I want thank Valvoline, Seubert Calf Ranches, Ace Metal Works, and Andy Durham Racing Engines. Thanksto Lucas Oil and the track crew for a great track.”

Richards and Jared Landers started on the front row of the 50-lap main event. Richards took the lead at the start of the race with Landers running in second. Landers held the second-spot until lap 15 when Sheppard got around him.

With seven laps-to-go, a final caution set-up a shootout between the top three of Richards, Sheppard, and Davenport. “Our car was really good all night! We moved to the top and that helped us,” said Sheppard. “Josh drifted up just enough for me to get by him. When he saw me, he was able to get back to the bottom of the track. I want to thank everybody at Best Performance Motorsports for this opportunity. It was a good race for us and a good points night, and a great way to start the year!”

Davenport recovered from falling all the way to 12th place at one point during the race. “We are really good on the long runs. I hated to see that one caution when we got up to third. We went to the top and car took off and was super good.” Completing the top ten were Eddie Carrier Jr., Tim McCreadie, Darrell Lanigan, Brian
Shirley, and Steve Francis.

In preliminary action, Jonathan Davenport set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 45 entrants, with a lap of 13.326 seconds. Jared Landers set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 15.399 seconds. Josh Richards, Brandon Sheppard, Jared Landers and Brian Shirley won their respective heat races. Randy Weaver and Mason Zeigler won their respective B-Mains.

Davenport Wins Georgia Boot Super Bowl of Racing Finale at Golden Isles Speedway

February 13th, 2015

BRUNSWICK, GA – Jonathan Davenport finally closed the deal on Saturday Night at Golden Isles Speedway. Davenport had led during both of the previous two nights, but suffered misfortune and was unable to finish either feature. On the final night of the Georgia Boot Super Bowl of Racing; in front of a record-breaking crowd for the famed speedway; Davenport picked up his fifth career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win.

Friday Night’s winner, Earl Pearson Jr. finished second, followed by Brandon Sheppard, Scott Bloomquist, and Ross Bailes rounded out five in an exciting finale to the Georgia Boot Super Bowl of Racing.

“We finally got it done! We have been fast all weekend, but we’ve just had some bad luck happen or we could have had three-in-a-row. I love coming down here to race, it’s fun to run in front of this size crowd. It’s the most people I have ever seen here. It was also special to win for LeRoy Rumley, today is his 79th birthday.”

Davenport earned his third straight Miller Welders Fast Time Award of the weekend during time trials earlier in the night and won his heat race. At the start of the 50-lap main event, he stormed to the lead. Ross Bailes settled into second and trailed Davenport, until sixth-place starter Jared Landers got by him.

Landers charged after Davenport for the lead, assuming the point on lap 22. Landers led until his left rear wheel broke on lap 30. Landers slowed right in front of Davenport forcing him to take evasive action. Davenport led the remaining 20 laps of the race to record the victory. A tire and wheel from Mike Benedum’s car came off on the final lap, and stacked the field for a final drag race to the checkers. Davenport pulled away and sailed on to the victory in convincing style.

“I was coming to the checkered flag and there was a tire and wheel from somebody’s car flying through the air. They threw the caution then. It was a little scary. I was hoping I wouldn’t run into it. I’m like darn I have to run one more lap. But anyway, it all worked out for us. I have to thank all my sponsors; TS Crane Service, Sundance Services, Sundance Flowback Well Testing, Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas, Longhorn Chassis, and of course, LeRoy and Kevin Rumley for building such good engines.”

Pearson moved into second place on lap 31 and stayed there throughout the remainder of the race. Despite three cautions over the last 19 laps of the race, Pearson could never get close enough after the restarts to challenge Davenport. “He [Davenport] has had the fastest car all weekend, no doubt about it. It was another good point’s night for us. I want to thank all these fans for coming out tonight. The grandstands and the pits were packed. It’s good to see. It’s such a good race track. I am glad all the hard work they put in paid off.”

“I didn’t have anything for Jonathan. Like I said he’s been fast all three days. To go home with a win and a second-place finish we have to feel real good about this as a team. Like I said last night, two months ago we had nothing. Carlton and Kemp Lamm have done a great job to build this team back up and being away from the sport for eight years. I have to thank Dunn-Benson Ford and Lucas Oil Products. Ronnie Stuckey from Black Diamond Race Cars and Andy Durham from Durham Racing Engines.”

Sheppard, like Davenport had run well the two previous nights without the results to show for it. “We had a tough couple of nights here Thursday and Friday. We felt like we had a car that could have won either night. To finish third tonight after changing engines from last night, we will take it and head to East Bay, said the driver of the Kid’s Castle, Valvoline, Rocket Chassis entry.

Completing the top ten were Dennis Erb Jr., Donald McIntosh, Kenny Pettyjohn, Jimmy Owens, and Stormy Scott.

In preliminary action, Jonathan Davenport set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 32 entrants, with a lap of 15.213 seconds. Jared Landers set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 15.461 seconds. Jonathan Davenport, Ross Bailes, Earl Pearson Jr. and Billy Moyer Jr. won their respective heat races.

Pearson Returns to Victory Lane in Georgia Boot Super Bowl of Racing at Golden Isles Speedway

February 7th, 2015

BRUNSWICK, GA– Earl Pearson Jr.’s 29th career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory may have been one of his most memorable. The popular 4-time LOLMDS National Champion raced in front of his hometown fans and friends collected the win on Friday Night at the Georgia Boot Super Bowl of Racing at Golden Isles Speedway.

Pearson then held off Jared Landers and Scott Bloomquist to take the win. Donald McIntosh had his best career LOLMDS finish with fourth place, followed by Stormy Scott.

“It is great to come back to Golden Isles, which is one of my favorite tracks. To run here in front of all of these people, and then to win it, all I can say is, they saw a heck of a race. Once the five car [Bailes] had that flat, I knew I had a good chance to win.”

“The track crew did a great job on the track today. After all the rain they had Wednesday Night, it was very racy and I think we all put on a good show. I have to thank Dunn-Benson Ford, Lucas Oil Products, Midwest Sheet Metal, Moree’s Enterprises, Sunoco, and Ohlins. This Black Diamond Race Cars by Ronnie Stuckey and Andy Durham Racing Engines combination is going to be really good this year”, stated Pearson.

Jonathan Davenport bolted to the lead early on, but Ross Bailes quickly made it a two-car battle. Bailes pressured Davenport several times, as the ran side-by-side on a few occasions. Davenport officially led the first 36 laps of the race until he ended up on the hook with broken right front suspension. The mishap marked the second straight night that Davenport would leave the race while leading.

Bailes led until lap 42 when he suffered a flat left rear tire. Pearson inherited the lead with Brandon Sheppard and Jared Landers in hot pursuit. On the restart Pearson held off hard-charging Landers for the win with Bloomquist coming in third.

Landers was extremely happy with the performance of his Crop Production Services-sponsored Sweet-Bloomquist car. “I couldn’t be happier with the way we ran tonight. The car was good all night. I kind of messed up on the last restart and lost a few spots. We will try to get the car better for tomorrow night. It is a very good way to start the points off,” stated Landers.

Bloomquist started 13th, and moved into third place near the end of the race and was really happy for Landers. “He did a good job tonight, I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to get into the top five from where we started. After not running the first race last year, we had to play catch-up the rest of the season. I want to thank all of my new sponsors; Reece Monument Company, Mark Martin Automotive, Petroff Towing, and also a big thank you to Ole Smoky Moonshine, Penske Shocks and Hawkeye Trucking.”

Completing the top ten were Chris Madden, Don O’Neal, Kenny Pettyjohn, Jason Papich, and Gregg Satterlee.

Eddie Carrier Jr Claims Opening Night of Georgia Boot Super Bowl of Racing

February 8th, 2015

BRUNSWICK, GA – Eddie Carrier Jr. passed Brandon Sheppard on the final lap to win the first night of the Georgia Boot Super Bowl of Racing at Golden Isles Speedway on Thursday Night. Carrier picked up the $7,000 first place prize for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned Edwin Coggins Memorial in his Carl Grover Motorsports, Optima Batteries, Rocket Chassis Ford. Brandon Sheppard led for most of the race but made a costly error on the last lap as he rolled his right front nosepiece under his car on the last turn.

Carrier’s win in the Edwin Coggins Memorial kicks off three straight nights of racing at the 4/10ths refurbished oval. Stormy Scott finished second, followed by Sheppard, Steve Francis, and Scott Bloomquist.

“I am not really sure what happened on that last lap, but I am happy for the win, he [Sheppard] pushed up the track in turn two and then he got up on the berm in turns three and four and couldn’t get out of it. The track workers did a good job with race track tonight; they kept working and working on it. With all the rain they had last night, the track was extremely fast and racy,” said Carrier.

“We worked all winter on our race program. Our last race of 2014 was the Dirt Track World Championship at Portsmouth. To come down here and win the first night out, it’s just a tremendous honor to race against these guys; they are the best in the business! I was hoping for a Rocket 1-2 finish. I have to thank Carl Grover, Optima Batteries, Engines Inc. of Ohio, Grover Racing Engines. I have to thank Josh McGuire for coming down and working with us. He and his wife just had a baby last month. He was going to fly home before East Bay, but maybe I can get him to stay through
next week if he can find a babysitter.”

In a wild 30-lap event, Carrier led the first lap before yielding to Sheppard, who roared from his fifth-starting spot to grab the lead. Jonathan Davenport who started on the outside of the front row fell back to third in the early going but picked up the pace as he moved by Sheppard to take the lead on lap seven. Davenport held the top spot until he left the race under caution after ten laps were scored with overheating issues.

Sheppard inherited the top spot as Davenport retired. He was the car to beat for most of the race, but misfortune struck on the last lap as the right front of his nosepiece dug into the track causing him to nearly lose control of his car. As he entered turn three, Sheppard’s car rode the cushion as Carrier slipped by underneath of him to take the win.

Stormy Scott also got by Sheppard on the final lap to take the runner-up finish. “That was a crazy finish. I thought I was going to settle for third and then Brandon jumped the cushion out there and we were able to clear him. Man what a finish for us! I have to thank Bryan Rowland Racing, Widow Wax, and Roadrunner Trucking, and Crane”, stated Scott.

Sheppard showed his disappointment afterwards. “We had a super-strong car tonight. I thought I had a big enough lead out there. I hit that burm in two and it folded the nosepiece back enough to where I couldn’t turn it. You hate to give one away like that. We will try again tomorrow night and give it everything we have again and hopefully get the win.”

Completing the top ten were Gregg Satterlee, Kenny Pettyjohn, Devin Moran, Chris Brown, and Mike Benedum.

In preliminary action, Jonathan Davenport set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group B) amongst the 33 entrants, with a lap of 15.172 seconds. Earl Pearson Jr. set the fastest time in Group A with a time of 15.347 seconds. Earl Pearson Jr., Eddie Carrier Jr., Jonathan Davenport, and Steve Francis won their respective heat races. Chris Brown and Devin Moran won their respective B-Mains.

The animal rights movement in America, led by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), has evolved into a wealthy and successful attack group determined to end the consumption of meat, threaten consumer access to affordable food, eliminate hunting, outlaw rodeos and circuses, and even ban animal ownership (including pets) altogether.Protect The Harvest was created to fight back and defend American families, farmers, sportsmen and animal owners from the growing threat posed by the radical animal rights movement.
