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. 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. The speedway is just a short drive from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Southern Maryland, and the Hampton Roads area....

Williams would go on to score a dominating win, after a frustrating first race, for his fourth win of the season. “I think the two guys up front were playing games with each other which allowed me to make the move for the lead, once out front I just tried to make sure the tires stayed under me,” commented Justin Williams in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane.

Jamaica, VA – After a year off due to the COVID-19 pandemic Virginia Motor Speedway got back to racing with a large car count and a great crowd on hand to see Victory Lap Late Model Champion Justin Williams of Concord, VA pick up where he left off in 2019, with a win. “We have been waiting on the 2021 schedule to come out to see if I was going to take another year off from racing, we were pumped to see it come out. To get the win tonight, in front of a crowd like tonight, is amazing and exciting,” commented Williams in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Williams would sweep the outside of Corey Almond of Appomattox, VA on lap 2 to take the lead, one he would not relinquish over the remaining 33 laps. Williams would take the checkers 2. 709 seconds over Almond, followed by Jeremy Pilkerton, fast qualifier Matt Quade, and Matt Glanden.

Williams would pull away from Almond by a little over a second. Behind the two leaders the battle for third began to heat up between fast qualifier Matt Quade, Jeremy Pilkerton, Matt Glanden, and Trevor Collins. With Williams showing the way with laps winding down, Almond worked to keep pace with Quade and Pilkerton in a tight battle for third. Quade and Pilkerton would exchange the third spot on multiple occasions before Pilkerton would claim the spot for good. Williams looked like his old self by taking the win over Almond, Pilkerton, Quade, and Glanden. After four years away from the Truckin Thunder Sportsman division, Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA picked up where he left off, by taking the win in dominating fashion. Lipscombe set fast time but was inverted back to fourth with the pill pull. It didn’t take him long to catch leader Matt Meads. On lap 5 Lipscombe pulled up to the back end of Meads and tried several times on the bottom to take the lead. On lap 7 Lipscombe shot to the outside of Meads in Turn 3 and 4 taking the lead by inches at the line. Once out front Lipscombe began pulling away from the battle for second. With 5 laps remaining Tim Shelton began his assault to the front with a pass on Kacey Gordon.

It took defending champion Hunter McClendon of Williamsburg, VA six laps to catch then leader Joey Polevoy of Powhatan, VA in the Budweiser Modified feature. On lap 8, while in traffic McClendon took the lead from Polevoy in heavy traffic taking over the top spot on lap 8. Once out front McClendon would pull away from the field. Behind him the battle for third on back between Bret Hamilton, Chase Polevoy, and Josh Harris. Butler would finally take over the third spot while the battle for the lead heated up. With five laps to go McClendon began racing in heavy traffic, at one point going three wide with slower traffic. That allowed Polelvoy to close the gap before getting caught up in that same lapped traffic which allowed McClendon to cruise on to the win. Rounding out the top five were Polevoy, Butler, Harris, and Lance Grady. In the Collision One Limited Stock Car 25 lap feature fast qualifier Brian Maxey started sixth with the pill pull, it only took him 2 laps to get to the front, taking the lead from Trent Clemons with an outside pass in turn 3. Once out front Maxey began to pull away from the battle for second on back. Johnny Brooks, Trent Clemons, and Ryan Hutchens all took turns at running second behind Maxey.

Maxey would go on to take home a dominating win in his return to the division after a four year absence. Rounding out the top five were Givens, Cory Bradley, Ryan Hutchens, and Trent Clemons.

Williams Outduels Hubbard for Pro Late Model Victory on Pepsi Night; Chase Butler Scores Career First in Modifieds; Casey and Givens also Grab Victories

Jamaica, VA – Justin Williams of Concord, VA and Billy Hubbard of Cobbs Creek, VA put on a battle for the ages. The two exchanged the lead four times before Williams would finally take over the top spot for good with a slide job on a lap 30 restart. Williams would then survive one last caution with two laps to go to score his third Victory Lap Pro Late Model win of the season on Pepsi Night. “All the drivers here are pretty tough when you can start sixth and come up and get the win and pass someone like Billy (Hubbard); I would say he’s won two in a row but one of them got taken away from him. I had to throw a little slide job on him to get by him,” commented Williams in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rounding out the top five were Davis Lipscombe, Russell Erwin in his first race, Billy Hubbard and Corey Almond. In other action Chase Butler of Mechanicsville, VA scored his career first Budweiser Modified win, taking the lead on lap 11 and then holding off point leader Hunter McClendon for the victory.

By lap 17 Williams had caught Hubbard in traffic and got inside him to take the lead on lap 18. Hubbard would fight back on the outside and regain the lead at the line the next lap. The two were aggressively working lapped traffic, almost getting into a couple of slower cars as they negotiated the lapped traffic. On a lap 30 restart Williams would put a slide job on Hubbard in turn 1 and take over the top spot. A caution on lap 33 set up a two lap shootout for the win. On the races final restart Hubbard tried to go around William’s on the outside, jumping the cushion allowing Williams to get away and Davis Lipscombe and Russell Erwin to get by for second and third with Hubbard and Corey Almond rounding out the top five. In the Budweiser Modified 30 lap feature Chase Butler and Francis Jarelle led the 23 car field to green with Jarelle leading the first circuit. Several positions back Hunter McClendon and Joey Polevoy battled for fourth just as the caution flew for the first time.

This time Butler was up for the challenge and jumped to the inside of Jarrelle heading into turn 1 and finally taking the lead out of turn 3. On lap 12 Brandon Galloway got by Jarrelle for second but would lose that position on lap 17 to McClendon. On lap 22 a caution erased all the distance between Butler and McClendon.

Brett Adkins and Chase Burrow led the field to green with Adkins taking the lead out of turn 4. On the next circuit Burrow, chad Beahr, Matt Ashworth and Tyler Shipp tried to make it four-wide out of turn 2 with Shipp ending up in the backstretch wall ending the point leader’s night.

Heading into turn 1 Burrow slid under Adkins with the two touching, sending Burrow to the lead with Tim Shelton and Weiss working to his inside in turn 2 making it three-wide. Contact would send Burrow spinning bringing out the caution. Weiss would inherit the lead when Adkins would have to retire with mechanical issues.
