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. 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....

Justin Williams Scores Victory Lap Pro Late Model Win in Return to Racing at Virginia Motor Speedway; Lipscombe, McClenden, and Maxey Also Score Opening Night Victories

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. In other action Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA took home the win in dominating fashion after returning to the division after a four year absence.

A stellar field of Victory Lap Pro late Model took the green flag with defending champion Justin Williams of Concord, VA getting around Corey Almond on lap 2 to take the lead in the 35 lap feature. 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. Coming to the white flag Shelton got inside Meads for second but had nothing for Lipscombe who took home the win by a full straight away. Rounding out the top five where Shelton, Meads, Gordon, and Steve Causey. 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. With the laps winding down the only thing to slow Maxey were three cautions that closed the field on his back bumper for a brief moment. 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.
