Tyler Bare Wins the $50,000 to Win FASTRAK World Championship at Virginia Motor Speedway; Mason Zeigler Scores Non-qualifiers Race Victory

Tyler Bare Wins the $50,000 to Win FASTRAK World Championship at Virginia Motor Speedway; Mason Zeigler Scores Non-qualifiers Race Victory

 Jamaica, VA – In what can only be described as a legendary finish, Tyler Bare of Rockbridge Baths, VA, made a 3-wide pass with one lap to go to take the lead and the $50,000 victory. Bare got inside then leader Zack Dohm of Cross Lanes, WV, and a lapped car on lap 58 to take the lead heading to the white flag. The pass netted him his career-best finish, taking home the  $50,000 FASTRAK World Championship presented by Dealer Group USA win and being crowned World Champion. Dohm got by Bare on lap 44 to take second and then take the lead from leader Henry Hornsby III on lap 47. Bare would follow Dohm into second. Bare would turn up the wick and chase down Dohm to battle for the lead. They battled in lapped traffic 3-wide on lap 53, with Dohm holding the top spot and then again on lap 58, Bare taking the top spot away for the win. “The money, this $50,000, will help our racing a whole bunch, but that right there (pointing to the B8 on his car) means more than the money to me. To honor my granddaddy like that really means a lot,” commented a tearful Tyler Bare in Virginia Is For Racing Lover’s victory lane. Benji Hicks and Henry Hornsby III led the field to green, with Hicks grabbing the lead. Hicks looked to be on kill as he pulled away with ease, but with the field racing three and four wide behind him. On lap 8, Kyle hardy spun in the middle of turns one and two, doing a complete 360 and continuing on, which kept the race green. On lap 16, Hicks ran into the back of a lapped car and spun in turn 4. On the lap 16 restart, a spinning third-place Tyler Emory caused a big wreck in turn 2. On the restart, Hornsby pulled away by a couple of car lengths and went on to lead at halfway and win the Wayne Sawyer Sr. Memorial Victory Lap Halfway Leader Award collecting $1000 cash and a plaque. After the 10-minute pit stop, Hornsby again grabbed the lead with Bare, Justin Williams, Zack Dohm, and Austin Hubbard in tow. On lap 37, Hubbard put a slide job on Williams in turn 4 to take third. On lap 45, Dohm got by Bare for second. Two laps later, he passed Hornsby on the outside for the lead. On lap 48, Bare got by Hornsby for second and set out to catch Dohm. On lap 53, Dohm and Bare went three wide with a lapped car, with Dohm holding on to the lead. The two raced side by side until lap 58, when they went three wide, this time Bare coming out with the lead. Bare would hold off Dohm over the last lap to score the $50,000 victory. Rounding out the top five were Dohm, Logan Roberson, Henry Hornsby III, and Austin Hubbard. Sixth through tenth were Russell Erwin, Walker Arthur, Michael Brown, Trevor Collins, and Jeremy Steele. Mason Zeigler of Chalk Hill, PA, won the 25-lap non-qualifiers race and elected to forgo the $1500 prize and tag the rear of the $50,000 FASTRAK World Championship. Zeigler was the show the first half of the main feature, racing from his twenty-seventh starting spot and making it to ninth by the hallway break. Unfortunately, Zeigler would have to go to the rear due to having to change an additional tire at the start of the second 30 laps and never mounted another charge to the front. In a drawing that included all 54 competitors, Ronnie Martin Jr. won a GM 604 engine, valued at $8200, that he could take home with him. The next event for the speedway will be the 18th annual Run-A-Muck Mud Bog on Saturday, October 8. Details will be released this week on the huge mega truck event.

Logan Roberson Scores Pro Late Model Victory; Hubbard, Butler, Shelton, and Maxey Crowned 2022 Champions

Logan Roberson Scores Pro Late Model Victory; Hubbard, Butler, Shelton, and Maxey Crowned 2022 Champions

Jamaica, VA – Logan Roberson of Waynesboro, VA, made his trip to Virginia Motor Speedway for some FASTRAK World Championship practice count, and in a big way. Roberson rocketed past Austin Hubbard of Bridgeville, DE, for the lead on lap 21 and then pulled away from the field to go on to grab the win in the Victory Lap Pro Late Model 30-lap feature. “It’s always great to get a win here; we feel really good about our chances in the upcoming $50,000 to win FASTRAK World Championship in September,” commented Roberson in Virginia Is For Racing Lovers victory lane. With his runner-up finish, Hubbard was crowned the 2022 Victory Lap Pro Late Model, his second at Virginia Motor Speedway. Austin Hubbard jumped to the lead on the drop of the green flag and looked to have the race with Trevor Collins close in second. By lap 10 Logan Roberson had moved into second and was closing on the leader. It looked like Hubbard would have enough to hold off Roberson that was until lap 21 when Roberson rocketed past for the lead out of turn 2. Once out front, Roberson pulled away from the field and went on to score the win by 4.995 seconds. Rounding out the top 5 were Hubbard, Ray Love Jr., Trevor Collins, and Nick Davis. In the Budweiser Modified 25-lap feature Joey Polevoy of Powhatan, VA, led flag to flag to score his second win of the season. Polevoy jumped to the lead on the drop of the green flag with Lance Grady in tow. On lap 3 point leader Chase Butler had a bit of a scare spinning to bring out the first caution of the race. On lap 12, Bret Hamilton would take second from Grady and set out to catch the leader. Polevoy would hold off Hamilton for the win. Rounding out the top 5 were Chase Butler, Lance Grady, and Brent Bordeaux. Rebounding from his lap four spin, Chase Butler of Mechanicsville, VA, was crowned the 2022 Budweiser Modified Champion for the second year in a row. Butler was the only driver in the modified division to finish in the top 5 in each race. Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA, returned to the Truckin Thunder Sportsman division with one goal to pick up the win. The division’s 2021 champion did just that, getting by Matt Meads of Elizabeth City, NC, on lap 10. With seven laps to go, Tim Shelton of Fredericksburg, VA, had made his way back to the runner-up spot. With five laps to go, Shelton would try to get inside Lipscombe in turn 1, only to have Lipscombe use the high-side to his advantage to hold on to the top spot. Lipscombe would go on to take the win and keep Shelton from matching his perfect record set in 2021. Rounding out the top five were Shelton, Matt Meads, Adam Breeden, and James Givens. Shelton would be crowned the 2022 Truckin Thunder Champion finishing no worse than second during the 2022 season. It took Johnny Brooks of Aylett, VA, eight laps to work his way to the lead in the Collision One Limited Stock Car 20-lap feature from his sixth place starting position. Once out front, Brooks would go on to score his third win of the season. Brooks would get by Ryan Hutchens on lap 8 with an inside move out of turn 2. Brian Maxey would close in on the leader with laps winding down but would be involved in a caution ending his night. Brooks would go on to score the win over Ryan Hutchens, Cory Bradley, Jacob Buie, and Brandon Bowler. Brian Maxey of King George, VA, would be crowned the 2022 Collision One Limited Stock Car Champion. The next event for the speedway will be the $50,000 to win FASTRAK World Championship presented by Dealer Group USA, set for September 23-24, 2022. The highest-paying Pro Late Model event will attract some of the top drivers in the country to the ½-mile speed plant located in Jamaica, VA.
