Jeremy Pilkerton Holds Off Davis Lipscombe for Pro Late Model Victory; Dehaven, Adkins, and Bradley All Score First Wins of 2023

Jamaica, VA – Jeremy Pilkerton of Loveville, MD, held off a hard-charging Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA, in the closing laps to score his second Victory Lap Pro Late Model victory at Virginia Motor Speedway. “When I got to the lapped car, I thought the race was over; I have to give props to Davis Lipscombe. That was the best race I have ever been a part of,” commented Pilkerton in Virginia Is For Racing Lovers victory lane. “I thought I gave the race away several times when it got loose on me.” Pilkerton and Matt Ashworth led the field to green, but Bud Stinson would come from third to lead the opening circuit of the 30-lap feature. On the next lap, Pilkerton would get under Stinson in turn 4 and take over the top spot, followed by Nick Davis into second and Davis Lipscombe into third. On the next lap, Lipscombe would get under Davis in turn 4 for second when Davis slid up the track. Pilkerton would pace the field, with Lipscombe closing the gap. On lap 21, the leaders came up on a slower car, with Pilkerton going high and Lipscombe going low down the backstretch. That allowed Lipscombe to nip Pilkerton at the line for the lead. A lead that would only last till turn 2 when Pilkerton would once again take control of the top spot. The races only caution came out on lap 24 for Curtis Hughes, who stopped on the front stretch after something broke on his car. On the restart, Pilkerton kept a couple of car lengths between himself and Lipscombe and scored his second win of 2023. Rounding out the top five were Lipscombe, Billy Hubbard, Nick Davis, and Ray Love, Jr. In the Budweiser Modified 25-lap feature, Bret Hamilton of Powhatan, VA, and Stephen Bryant led the field to green. Hamilton would grab the lead coming out of turn 2 with the action 3-wide behind him. The race’s only caution came out on lap 6 for a spinning Curtis Mason Jr. On the restart, Hamilton would pull away by a car length over T.J. Dehaven. Dehaven would close in on Hamilton and, on lap 11, would drive a car length deeper into three, with both cars pushing up the track allowing Dehaven to take the lead. Once out front, Dehaven would pull away for the victory while Hamilton would hold off Chase Butler for second. Rounding out the top five were Butler, Jeff Solinger, and Brent Bordeaux. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 25-lap feature, Adam Breeden and Matt Meads would lead the field to green, with Breeden taking the lead at the line by inches. In turn 1, Breeden pulled ahead by a couple of car lengths while Meads and Steve Causey battled for second. Causey would get into the back of Meads in turn 3, sending Meads spinning and bringing out the races only caution. Causey would be sent to the rear as well. On the restart, Breeden had Brett Adkins on his bumper. On lap 3, Breeden slid up the track in turn 2, allowing Adkins to drive under him for the lead. Once out front, Adkins cruised to the win. Rounding out the top five were Hunter Wright, Steve Causey, Adam Breeden, and Matt Meads. In the Collision One Limited Stock Car 20 lap feature, Cory Bradley of Hopewell, VA, and Trent Clemans of North Prince George, VA, led the field to green, with Bradley leading the first circuit, closely followed by Raymond Harper and Clemans, with Harper and Clemans battling for second, that allowed Bradley to set a good pace and pull away in the caution-free event for the win. Rounding out the top five were Raymond Harper, Johnny Brooks, Trent Clemans, and Ryan Hutchens.

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.
