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. The Speedway will take next week off and will return to racing Friday and Saturday September 14 & 15 for the FASTRAK World Championship weekend.

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.

Jamaica, VA – Persistent heavy rains all week and downpours over night have forced officials at Virginia Motor Speedway to cancel racing activities for Saturday July 28th. “With the amount of rain we had during the week, the torrential downpours over night and a forecast for more of the same today have forced us to make this difficult decision. The grounds just can’t take any more moisture,” commented track General Manager Clarke Sawyer. The speedway will return to racing on Saturday August 4th and host Atlantic Broadband Night and week 9 of Aaron’s Dirt Series Championship weekly action featuring the Victory Lap Pro Late Model, Truckin Thunder Sportsman, Budweiser Modified and Collision One Limited Stock Car divisions in action.

Tyler Bare Takes Pro Late Model Victory; Polevoy, Shelton and Coltrain all grab first wins of the season.

Tyler Bare Takes Pro Late Model Victory; Polevoy, Shelton and Coltrain all grab first wins of the season.

Jamaica, VA – Tyler Bare of Rockbridge Baths, VA took over the top spot in the Victory Lap Pro Late Model after race leader Jared Powell of Charlottesville, VA and second place Matt Quade of Mechanicsville, MD got together on lap 23 seconding both the rear of the field. Once out front Bare powered away from the field to take the win. “We hate to win them that way, but we will take it. We found something on the top groove and I believe we had something for them anyway. We had a chance to race closer to home tonight but we chose to come back to Virginia Motor Speedway because we love it here,” commented Bare in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rounding out the top five were Ryan Adams, Matt Tarbox, Corey Almond and Camden Testerman. In other action Joey Polevoy of Powhatan, VA scored an emotional win in the Budweiser Modified feature. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman feature Tim Shelton of Fredericksburg, VA wrestled the lead away from Joe Weiss of Elizabeth City, NC to become the third winner in as many races and in the Collision One Limited Stock Car 25 lap feature Marty Coltrain of North Chesterfield, VA held off a late race challenge from point leader James Givens of Sandston, VA to return to victory lane after a two year absence. Chuck Bowie and Jared Powell led the Victory Lap Late Model field to green with Powell grabbing the lead out of turn 2. On the next lap Matt Quade would get by Bowie for second and set out to catch Powell. On lap 12 Quade tried to get under Powell for the lead but was unable to make the pass. For the next 16 laps the two battled for the lead side by side with Tyler Bare making it three wide on several occasions. On lap 23 Quade dove in hard under Powell in turn four and slammed into the side of Powell’s car sending him for a spin. The move resulted in a black flag for Quade sending both drivers to the rear of the field. That handed the lead over to Bare, a lead he would not relinquish as he drove on to the win. Rounding out the top five were Ryan Adams, Matt Tarbox, Corey Almond and Camden Testerman. The win by Bare makes it three different winners in three races. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman it only took six laps for Tim Shelton to grab the lead away from Joe Weiss, but those were six hotly contested laps. Once out front though Shelton was able to pull away to grab the win. Rounding out the top five were Weiss, Matt Meads, Steve Causey and Tyler Shipp. Shelton’s win makes it three different winners in three events. In the Budweiser Modified 30 lap feature it looked as if Francis Jarrell was going to walk away with an easy win. But on lap 11 two lapped cars spun in turn 3, collecting the leader in the process. That handed the lead over to Joey Polevoy and he took complete advantage of the situation. Once the field got back under green Polevoy pulled away from the battle for second between Tim Schulte and Chase Butler. Polevoy would cruise to the win with Schulte, Butler, twentieth starting Ryan Toole and Jeff Solinger. It may look like Marty Coltrain had an easy time in grabbing his first Collision One Limited Stock Car win in two years, but what the scorecard doesn’t show you is the amount of challenges for the lead he had to defend. Coltrain and Chad Champion led the field to green with Coltrain grabbing the lead out of turn 2. Champion tried several times to get under Coltrain to take the lead but was unable to make the pass. Trent Clemens and James Givens then made it a four car race for the lead. On lap 6 Givens took over second with a power move to the outside of both champion and Clemens in turn 2. Once in second he began to apply pressure to the bumper of Coltrain. Just behind him Corey Bradley had worked his way from his twentieth starting position to pressure Givens for second. Coltrain worked his line and kept Givens at bay to take home his first win in two years. Rounding out the top five were Givens, Bradley, Champion and Brandon Bowler. The Speedway will take next Saturday July 7th off and return to racing on Saturday June 14 and host week 8 of Aaron’s Dirt Series Championship weekly action featuring the Victory Lap Pro Late Model, Truckin Thunder Sportsman, Budweiser Modified and Collision One Limited Stock Car divisions in action.
