Williams Scratches and Claws to Top-Five Finish in Music City

April 8th, 2017

NASHVILLE, TN — The 100-lap season-opener for the Pro Late Models at the Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville was what many would consider to be a “character-building” day for Cole Williams and his No. 46 race team. Williams qualified 12th, but started way back in 24th. He eventually made his way all the way up to fourth at the finish.

“We made a big swing on adjustments Sunday morning before qualifying that ended up causing me to be way to free during our qualifying run,” Williams explained. “Because I wasn’t happy with how our car was handling, I decided to try and improve the car to increase our chances of winning than to run mediocre in mid pack, so we pulled out of our position after qualifying to make adjustments which is a penalty for impound races.”

As a result, Williams forfeited his 12th-place starting position and was sent to the rear of the field. However, with a methodical approach, Williams was able to work his way through the field and into the top five by the end of the race.

The Indiana native was one of the fastest cars on the race track in the closing laps and perhaps might have been a contender for the win if he had just a few more laps.

“We took our time through the field and tried to stay out of all the troubles that happened through the field which we were successful at doing Sunday. Honestly, I don’t think anyone had the car to beat Willie Allen, but if there was a late race restart I was confident enough in our car that we could have fought hard for second and third.”

Williams said that a run through the field like the one he had on Sunday is a big momentum builder, as was his sixth-place finish on Friday night at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida. Now, he feels that he has momentum on his side when he makes his debut in a Super Late Model on April 28 at Five Flags.

“Having a solid run coming from 24th definitely shows we can manage well as a team from deep in the field. As a driver, it helped me boost my confidence by showing I was capable of moving forward to the front. We also have a ton of notes to go back to the shop with and improve for our next race, which is always good. I’m really looking forward to that race to get more seat time and hopefully we’ll have a solid outing.”

Fairgrounds Speedway Announces Title Sponsor for All American 400

October 2nd, 2016

(Nashville, TN) – The 32nd Annual All American 400 at the Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville in Tennessee has found a presenting sponsor. This year’s highly-anticipated return to a 400-lap Super Late Model race will be presented by the Freeman Webb Company.

“I am proud to sponsor the All-American 400, and I continue to be proud of our speedway and the impressive history it holds for racing and its impact on Nashville,” said Bill Freeman, founder of the Freeman Webb Company. “For over 30 years, I have supported our speedway and racing in Nashville. I have fond memories of cheering on the races as a boy with my father and grandfather, and I brought my sons and granddaughters to the speedway as well. Music and racing legend Marty Robbins once said, ‘Every day is a good day to be alive, whether the sun’s shining or not.’ I say every day is a good day to be at the Fairgrounds Speedway! Let’s keep the tradition going! Thank you to the entire Formosa family and to all of our racing fans!”

The Freeman Webb Company is one of the largest property management and real estate investment companies in the greater Nashville area.

Freeman has been a long-time supporter of the Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville and as a result he gained the support of Fairgrounds Speedway promoter Tony Formosa when Freeman pursued the position of Mayor of Nashville in 2015.

“Bill Freeman has been a very long time supporter of the Fairgrounds Speedway and the Fairgrounds Nashville,” said Formosa. “Growing up, Bill spent his weekends at the races. Bill’s face is no stranger to the Fairgrounds Speedway. In 2015, when Bill announced he would be running for Mayor, he came to me and told me he wanted my support so myself and my staff did just that. Regardless of the outcome of the Mayoral race, Bill is a great friend of mine, and to have his support now that I am the promoter of this historic track means more to me than words can ever describe. Freeman-Webb Companies is one of the largest real estate companies in the country and to have that type of support behind us on a historic event like the All-American 400 is outstanding. I can never truly put into words what it means to have Freeman-Webb as the primary sponsor of one of the most historic races in the country.”

The 32nd Annual All American 400 weekend kicks off on Saturday, October 1 with qualifying for Pro and Super Late Models. The 400-lap Super Late Model race and 100-lap Pro Late Model race will take place on Sunday, October 2.
