Continued Tire Shortages Force Cancellation of FASTRAK World Championship

Continued Tire Shortages Force Cancellation of FASTRAK World Championship

Jamaica, Virginia – With Hoosier’s continued tire shortages and after exhausting all avenues available to get enough FT200 and FT400 tires to cover the number of cars expected to compete in the 2021 FASTRAK World Championship two-day event, officials at Virginia Motor Speedway and FASTRAK Racing have made the difficult decision to cancel the event for 2021. “I do appreciate VMS working with us during the struggle with tires. The World Championship is our biggest profit event of the entire season, and as badly as we hate to cancel it, what choice do we really have? Unfortunately, FT90’s are not scheduled to be produced until October, so that doesn’t do us much good for a World Championship this year. That being the case, we decided the thing to do is keep the tires they were making for us in inventory so they could be cured well and have tires to start next season with,” commented FASTRAK Owner/Founder Stan Lester. Lester added, “I know people will suggest that we go to open tire. Well, that’s a little hard to do since there is no compatible tire to the FT200, plus making every competitor have every tire compound of every crate spec tire would be a ridiculous amount of money and not all crate teams can afford that. It’s an impossible situation to be in, but we don’t manufacture tires, so it’s completely out of our hands. The bottom line is this. If there are not enough tires in stock for every team to have three sets of tires, then we have to wait on supply and let it catch up.” The decision to cancel this year’s event is not an emotional decision; it has been based on actual facts that are business-related and that every track, Series, and sanction, asphalt and dirt, has been dealing with all year. Based on Hoosier’s tire production schedule, the time of year they will be released, and the other events already scheduled late in the year, the event just did not have a place to go. “This decision did not come lightly. The track and the Series have worked for over a month now to see if we could rectify the tire issue in advance of the World Championship weekend. We have been in constant contact with Hoosier about the availability of the FASTRAK FT200 and FT400 tires and have not come up with enough tires for every competitor to have the same chance at getting tires. The FASTRAK World Championship has been our season-ending crown jewel for seven years, and it has been gaining the momentum in fan and competitor support that we have been working towards since the first World Championship at our speedway,” commented Virginia Motor Speedway owner Bill Sawyer. All efforts now will be on the 2022 FASTRAK World Championship and more. Some exciting news will be released in the coming weeks, including new tracks, new classes, new sponsors, and, more importantly, doubling the amount to win for the 2022 World Championship.

Quade Scores Second Pro Late Model Victory; Lipscombe, Brooks returned to Victory Lane, and Lance Grady Grabs Career First Modified Win

Quade Scores Second Pro Late Model Victory; Lipscombe, Brooks returned to Victory Lane, and Lance Grady Grabs Career First Modified Win

Jamaica, VA – Matt Quade of Avenue, VA, grabbed the lead on the opening lap and led flag to flag to score his second Victory Lap Pro Late Model win of the season. With only one caution on lap 4 Quade kept a steady pace in front of the battle for second between Chuck Bowie, Justin Williams, and Jeremy Pilkerton. With the action behind him, Quade cruised to the win. “The car drove the best it has driven all year; I can’t thank my dad and crew for all the work they put on this car; I could drive it anywhere it needed to go,” commented Quade in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Justin Williams of Concord, VA, was crowned the 2021 Victory Lap Pro Late Model Champion. His third division championship in a row. “We had a great year considering the caliber of talent we have here (Virginia Motor Speedway0, I can’t think my crew for all the work they put into this week end and week out,” commented Williams when asked about his championship season. No one has ever gone undefeated, that is until Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA, parked his #71 in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane for the seventh time in a row. This victory did not come easy, though, as Lipcombe got caught up in a wreck on the opening lap. That sent him to the rear for the restart. Several cautions helped Lipscombe work through some of the slower traffic. On a lap 9 restart, Tim Shelton worked inside Tyler Shipp for the lead, with Lipscombe following to second. On the following lap, Lipscombe took the lead from Shelton. A caution on lap 25 closed the field up on the leader’s tail. On the restart, Shelton gave Lipscombe a boot heading into turn 1, allowing Shelton to take the lead. On the next lap Lipscombe would take back the lead from Shelton. Over the next three laps, the two raced side-by-side until Lipscombe took control out of the final corner to score the victory and remain undefeated. Rounding out the top five were Shelton, Tyler Shipp, Matt Ashworth, and Matt Meads. Davis Lipscombe was crowned the 2021 Truckin Thunder Sportsman Champion. In the Budweiser Modified feature, Austin Holcombe jumped out to the lead with working his way to second. From lap 10 to lap 15 Holcombe and Arnold were working their way through traffic. Then, on lap 17, Daniel Parker got into the side of Arnold, sending both to the infield. Once back under green, Holcombe would be lead every lap of the remaining 13 laps for what looked like the win. But a disqualification handed the win to Lance Grady, his career first win. Rounding out the top five were Jeff Solinger, Ryan Toole, Josh Harris, and Chase Butler. Chase Butler of Mechanicsville, VA, was crowned the 2021 Budweiser Modified Champion. Butler scored two wins, 7 top 5’s, and 7 top 10’s. In the Collision One Limited Stock Car 25 lap feature Johnny Brooks grab the lead on the opening lap and never looked back. Once out front Brooks kept a comfortable distance between himself and second place. On lap 6, point leader Brian Maxey and James Givens got together in turn 3 to bring out the caution and sending them to the rear of the field. Over the remaining 19 laps, Brooks would cruise out to a comfortable lead, one he would not relinquish. Rounding out the top five were Brian Maxey, Raymond Harper, Jay Seward, and James Givens. Brian Maxey of King George, VA, was crowned the 2021 Collision One Limited Stock Car Champion.

Hoosier’s National Tire Shortage Forces Cancellation of This Weekend’s Prelude to the World Championship

Hoosier’s National Tire Shortage Forces Cancellation of This Weekend’s Prelude to the World Championship

Jamaica, Virginia – The current Hoosier tire shortage has forced officials at Virginia Motor Speedway and FASTRAK Racing to cancel this weekend’s Prelude to the World Championship event. After exhausting all avenues available to get enough FT200 and FT400 compounds to cover the number of cars expected to contend for the $3000 top prize, the difficult decision was to cancel the event for 2021. “We have been in conversations with Hoosier Tire for several weeks now about the number of tires available as it is not only affecting this FASTRAK tour event but also our weekly racing,” commented Virginia Motor owner Bill Sawyer. Sawyer added, “unfortunately, there are just not enough tires available for not only the Pro Late Models but also for two of our weekly divisions; there is just no way to get the tires manufactured in time for the event.” This cancellation comes on the heels of the track’s 45th annual USA 100 falling to rain. The cancellation will also affect the three weekly divisions scheduled to compete as support divisions to the FASTRAK Touring Series. “I support Bill and Virginia Motor Speedway’s decisions on this,” commented FASTRAK Racing Owner/Founder Stan Lester. “No different than our Charlotte event when we had to cancel it. That difficult decision made sure that our weekly tracks had tires. Even though many of our tour events have been canceled, it’s the responsibility of the series to ensure that our weekly tracks can race first, then the tour afterward. Hopefully, this move will ensure we have plenty of tires for the World Championship,” added Lester. Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway is a ½ mile dirt oval track located on U.S. Route 17, eight miles north of Saluda, VA, and 25 miles south of Tappahannock, VA, in Jamaica, VA.

100% Chance of Rain Forces Cancellation of $20,000 to win USA 100

100% Chance of Rain Forces Cancellation of $20,000 to win USA 100

Jamaica, Virginia – With the impending weather forecast calling for a 100% chance of rain, management of Virginia Motor Speedway, Ultimate Super Late Model Series, and FASTRAK Racing have made the difficult decision to cancel the August 7th $20,000 to win Ernie Shelton’s USA 100. “The decision to cancel a race is the hardest thing we have to do as a promoter. But Mother Nature has forced a decision as we have too many drivers and fans coming from long distances. We don’t want to cause them any unnecessary costs for fuel and hotel rooms”, commented Virginia Motor owner Bill Sawyer. Sawyer added, “with over an inch of rain forecast and thunderstorms, it is the right decision for us to make with the information we have at our disposal.” Forecast data from multiple weather companies conclude that 90-100% chance of rain and over an inch of rainfall. “Unfortunately, Mother Nature is once again forcing us to make a decision we didn’t want to have to make. With the current forecast, this is the best decision for the teams, fans, and officials, all of whom are traveling considerable distances to attend the USA 100. Above all else, we must keep our fans and competitors in mind,” commented FASTRAK International Companies Founder and President Stan Lester.
