Jamaica, VA – In the closest finish in Ultimate Super Late Model Series history Brandon Overton of Evans, GA held off Rick Eckert of York, PA by .119 seconds to score the $20,000 win in the 43rd annual USA at Virginia Motor Speedway. Overton would take the lead on lap 21 and looked to have the race in hand that is until lap 56 when Eckert began to pressure Overton for the lead. On the final lap Eckert worked under Overton in turn 3, the two raced side by side back to the finish line with Overton holding off Eckert for the win. “I was just holding on there the last couple of laps, I guess Billy (Vacek) was riding with us tonight; I wanted to win the other night at Fayetteville but I will take this $20,000 over that $10,000 any day,” commented a very emotional Brandon Overton in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rick Eckert, Ross Bailes, Zack Mitchell, and Chris Ferguson rounded out the top five. In other action Carson Ferguson of Charlotte, NC was at the right place at the right time, taking the lead when race leader Layton Sullivan blew a right rear tire coming out of turn 4 heading to the checkers to score the $3000 victory in a caution-filled FASTRAK Racing Touring Series 40 lap feature. It was Ferguson’s third touring series win in a row. Rounding out the top five were Trevor Feathers, Layton Sullivan, Corey Almond and Ryan Adams. Ross Bailes and Michael Brown led the 30 car field to green with Brown taking the lead out of turn 2 followed by Chris Ferguson. Bailes would take second back on the next circuit. By lap 5 brown had worked to a two-car length advantage. The races first caution would fall on lap 7 for a stopped Corey Gordon in turn 4. On the restart, Bailes rocketed around Brown in turn 1 and 2 to take over the top spot. On lap 9 Brandon Overton went to second with an inside pass of Brown in turn 2. By Lap 16 Overton was within a car length of Bailes as they approached lapped traffic. On lap 18 Overton was on the back of Bailes as they began to enter the lapped traffic. On lap 20 Overton made his move, getting to the inside of Bailes out of turn 2. They raced side by side until turn 4 where Overton took over the lead. Eric Erwin would bring out the caution on lap 21 as he slowed in turn 4. On the restart Overton jumped out to a quick two-car length lead while Rick Eckert went from fifth to third in two corners, getting by Chris Ferguson and Brown. By lap 30 Overton was back in lapped traffic allowing Bailes and Eckert to close. Just as it looked like things were going to get interesting Trevor Feathers brought out the third caution of the race when his car slowed going down the backstretch. On the lap 32 restart, Overton once again jumped to a three car length advantage over Bailes and Eckert. On lap 36 Casey Roberts, who had made a run from twenty-eighth to tenth, slowed on the front stretch with mechanical issues. On the lap 36 restart Overton once again got a great jump on the field as Ferguson took back third from Eckert. ON lap 42 the best battle on the track was the one for third between Ferguson, Eckert and fourteenth starting Zack Mitchell. By lap 48 Eckert had taken third and Mitchell fourth. On lap 48 the races fifth caution would fall for Jamie Lathroum who came to pit road for a flat right rear tire. On lap 49 Bailes got inside Overton coming out of turn 4, Overton would hold at the line. On the next circuit, things got really interesting as Overton, Bailes, Overton and Mitchell were all battling for the lead. On lap 53 Eckert would dive under Bailes going down the backstretch. On lap 54 caution would fall for a stopped Jeff Smith in turn 4. On the races final green Overton and Eckert would jump out to a two car length on the rest of the field. On lap 56 Eckert worked his way inside Overton in turn 4 and then again in turn 2. On the final lap Overton led Eckert into turn 2 and down the backstretch. As the barreled into turn 3 Eckert got inside Overton, as they raced off turn 4 they raced side by side to the line with Overton holding off Eckert by .119 seconds for the victory. Heat race winners – Ross Bailes, Michael Brown, Chris Ferguson and Daulton Wilson. In the FASTRAK Touring Series, 40 lap feature Jensen Ford and Justin Williams led the 29 car field to green. The two raced side by side back to the line with Ford take the lead by inches at the line. In turn 1 Ford would get by to put some distance between himself and Williams. Ford would pace the field until lap 19 when Ford slowed coming out of turn 2 bringing out the caution. On the restart, Williams got a good jump on the field with Logan Roberson and Trevor Feathers in tow. A big crash involving seven cars on lap 26 would bring out a red flag for clean-up. It took five times to get the race restarted on lap 25 but once it did Williams began to pull away. On lap 34 Williams’ night came to an end when he blew a right rear tire sending him to the infield. That started the beginning of flat right rear tires going flat. First Trevor Feathers just after taking over the lead on the caution on lap 35, then Kyle Lear amongst others. Layton Sullivan would lead the field to green for the final time and looked to have his first career win only to blow a right rear tire coming out of turn 4 to the checkers, which allowed Carson Ferguson to take the $3000 victory over Trevor Feathers, Layton Sullivan, Corey Almond and Ryan Adams rounding out the top five.

Jamaica, Virginia – With the impending severe weather forecast, for the local area and much if not all the East Coast, management of Virginia Motor Speedway, Ultimate Super Late Model Series and FASTRAK Racing have made the difficult decision to cancel the April 20th $20,000 to win King of the Commonwealth. “With over 3 inches of rain and the forecast for damaging high winds and possible tornado’s this evening and into the early morning hours we have unfortunately made the decision to cancel tomorrows event.” said Virginia Motor owner Bill Sawyer.

With an already saturated grounds it really makes it a task daunting to get the parking areas and track ready for such a big event. “Unfortunately, Mother Nature is once again forcing us to make a decision. With the treat of severe weather up and down the East Coast we feel that this is the best decision for the teams, fans and officials, al lot of which are traveling considerable distances to attend the King of the Commonwealth. Above all else, we must keep everyone’s safety in mind,” commented FASTRAK International Companies Vice-President DJ Irvine.

Davis Lipscombe Scores Victory Lap Pro Late Model Victory; Matt Quade Crowned 2018 Champion

Jamaica, VA – After what has been a tough season for Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA he was able to end the season on a high note with a dominating win in the Victory Lap Pro Late Model feature on Northern Neck Chevrolet championship Night. Lipscombe and Dustin Ferguson of Appomattox, VA battled side by side for much of the first 11 laps before Lipscombe muscled his way to the lead on lap 12 and then drove away for the field for the win. “The car has been fast all year long, but the driver has not always been at his best. This win gives us a lot of confidence going into the FASTRAK World Championship weekend,” commented Lipscombe in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rounding out the top five were Corey Almond, Dustin Ferguson, Matt Quade and Brad Rigdon. Matt Quade of Mechanicsville, MD was crowned the 2018 Victory Lap Pro Late Model Champion after wheeling his ride to a fourth place finish. Tyler Shipp of Mechanicsville, VA took the lead on the opening lap of the Truckin Thunder Sportsman feature and went on to score his second win of the season in dominating fashion. With Shipp controlling the top spot Mark Gonzales and Matt Meads battle for the entire 30 lap feature for the runner up spot with Gonzales taking it for the final time on lap 21. Rounding out the top five were Gonzales, Meads, Tim Shelton and Joe Weiss. Tim Shelton of Fredericksburg, VA was crowned the 2018 Truckin Thunder Sportsman Champion with his fourth place finish. In the Budweiser Modified feature James Sparks of Hollywood, MD jumped out to the lead on the drop of the green flag and paced the field until lap 8 when he hit the front stretch wall and came to a stop with a flat left rear tire. That handed the lead over to Joey Polevoy who went on to a full straight win with Chase Butler, Lance Grady, J.D. Eversole and Ryan Toole rounding out the top five. Division point leader Hunter McClendon of Williamsburg, VA had to park his car on lap 3 with a broken rear end and it looked as if his chances of a championship where over but his lead heading into the night was just enough to be crowned the 2018 Budweiser Modified Champion by two points over rookie Chase Butler of Mechanicsville, VA. James Givens of Henrico, VA has been dominant all year long in the Collision One Limited Stock Car division. In tonight’s feature it took him 15 laps to works his way to the front from his eighth place starting position and take the lead from Chad Champion. Over the final 10 laps Givens had to hold off multiple challenges from Trent Clemans for the lead. Coming to the white the two were side-by-side for the lead. On the final lap Clemans car pushed in turn 2 and that was all Givens needed to record his sixth win of the season and take home the 2018 Collision One Limited Stock Car Championship. Rounding out the top five Clemans, Cory Bradley, Mark Schools and Randy Hutchens.

Matt Quade Scores Career First Pro Late Model Victory; Shelton, McClendon and Givens also Take Wins

Jamaica, VA – On the night that the lights went out in Jamaica Matt Quade of Avenue, MD collected his career first Victory Lap Pro Late Model victory on Atlantic Broadband Night at Virginia Motor Speedway. After two weeks of rains that put a damper on just about all racing activities in the Mid-Atlantic the sun finally shined on a Saturday night. So, when the track experienced a complete blackout due to a power outage in the county it looked as if we would lose another event. After a 45-minute delay the lights came back on and racing was able to continue to the delight of the crowd. The blackout might have been exciting but the action in the Victory Lap Pro Late Model feature was even more exciting. Matt Quade of Avenue, MD and Bud Stinson of Appomattox, VA put on a side-by-side driving clinic, trading the lead six times before Quade would eventually take control of the 35-lap affair. Once out-front Quade would cruise to his career first Pro Late Model win and become the fifth different winner in as many races. “That was definitely the hardest win I have ever had to work for and it has been the hardest first win to come by in my career,” commented Quade in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rounding out the top five were Davis Lipscombe, Corey Almond, Dustin Ferguson and Matt Tarbox.

Stinson and Quade would put on a show for the fans racing side by side and trading the lead back and forth six times before Quade would take control of the feature. Once out front Quade would keep a comfortable distance between himself and the battle for second on back. While Quade was set on cruise the other battles in the top five were exciting as Davis Lipscombe, Corey Almond, Dustin Ferguson, Matt Tarbox and Brent Bordeaux battled to stay in the top five. No one had anything for Quade over the last 15 laps as he drove to his career first victory in the Pro Late Model division and continued the trend of a different winner in every race this season. Davis Lipscombe, Corey Almond, Dustin Ferguson and Matt Tarbox rounded out the top five. Tim Shelton and Tyler Shipp led the Truckin Thunder field to green with Shelton jumping out to the lead out of turn 2. Shelton would pace the field with Matt Meads following close behind him in second. The only thing to slow Shelton over the remaining 25 laps were a couple of cautions that closed the field on his bumper. Meads did mount a late charge and looked inside Shelton coming out of turn 4 as they headed to the checkers but Shelton would hold on for the win. Meads, Tyler Shipp, Joe Weiss and Brett Adkins rounded out the top five. Tim Schulte and Ryan Toole led the Budweiser Modified field to green with Toole rocketing to the lead on the outside followed by Schulte, fast qualifier Francis Jarrelle and Bret Hamilton. Toole began to pull away from the field with Schulte and Hamilton battling for second. The races first caution would fly on lap 8 for a spin by Josh Harris in turn 4. On the restart Toole once again jumped out to a nice lead as Jarrelle worked his way to third. Jarrelle would retire to the infield a lap later after losing a drive shaft. Toole would pace the field until lap 24 when McClendon worked the outside of Toole in turn 2 for the lead. Once out front McClendon would go on to his second win of 2018. Rounding out the top 5 were Tim Schulte, Bret Hamilton, Josh Harris and Jeff Solinger. It only took James Givens 5 laps to take the lead in the Collision One Limited Stock feature and would go on to score his fourth win of the season. Raymond harper and Cory Bradley led the field to green with the action quickly going three-wide as Trent Clemans moved to the inside to take the lead at the line. His lead would be short lived as he would spin in turn 4 by himself on lap 4. Bradley would lead them back to green but James Givens would power around him for the lead. Givens would have to hold off a late charge by Bradley over the final laps to score the victory. Rounding out the top five were Cory Bradley, Mark Schools, Chad Champion and Shawn Otey.
