ARNOLD HOLDS OFF ALTOBELLI FOR MODIFIED MAFIA TOUR WIN; LIPSCOMBE & DAVIS GRAB PRO LATE MODEL WINS; ADKINS AND BROOKS ALSO VISIT VICTORY LANE

Jamaica, VA – The Modified Mafia Tour Shoot’ Em Up 30 feature became an instant classic as Chris Arnold of Matoaca, VA, used a little home-track magic to hold off Michael Altobelli of Saxton, PA, over the last 12 laps to score the $2500 victory at Virginia Motor Speedway. “I have been trying for years to get a win in a special here at Virginia Motor Speedway; I can’t thank Michael Altobelli enough for racing me clean,” commented Chris Arnold in Virginia Is For Racing Lovers victory lane. Micheal Altobelli and Chris Arnold led the field to green, with Arnold taking the lead out of turn 2. On lap 7 Austin Holcombe moved into second and began to close in on Arnold. Behind the leader Ty Norder, Taylor Cook, and Micheal Altobeill battled for third. A caution on lap 14 for a big wreck in turn 4 that involved six cars closed Holcombe on Arnold’s bumper. On the restart, Holcome would get under Arnold in turn 1, only to see Arnold use the high line to hold on to the lead. On lap 15 the battle for the lead got three wide with Arnold, Holcombe, and Altobelli. A caution on lap 17 for debris would put the field nose to tail for the restart. On the restart, Altobelli got under Holcombe for second and closed on Arnold. On the next lap, Altobelli got inside Arnold in turn 2 and pulled door-to-door into turn 3. Coming out of turn 4, Altobelli pulled ahead by a bumper, taking the lead at the line. Arnold would power back around Altobelli on the outside of turn one and two to retake the lead down the backstretch. Two laps later, Altobelli would look outside in turn 2, pulling up to Arnold’s door. Behind them, the battle for third between Holcombe and Taylor Cook heated up. All eyes were on the race for the lead, with the fans on their feet as Arnold and Altobelli battled side-by-side in the corners with the laps winding down. With three to go, the leaders started working lapped traffic, with both drivers getting through without much hassle. On the final lap, Arnold had Altobelli on his bumper. The two barreled down the backstretch. Heading into turn 3, Altobelli made one last ditch at the win by driving it hard into the corner. Arnold would hold on to grab the win over Altobelli, Taylor Cook, and Ty Norder. In the first Victory Lap Pro Late Model 15 lap feature, Corey Almond of Appomattox, VA, and Billy Hubbard of Cobbs Creek, VA, led the field to green, with Almond grabbing the lead out of turn 2. Almond paced the field for the first seven laps, with Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA, closing in for the lead. On lap 7 Lipscombe began looking inside of Almond the lead. On lap 8, Lipscombe nipped Almond at the line by a bumper. The two race side-by-side all the way to turn 4, where Almond got caught behind a lap car, allowing Lipscombe to pull away. Over the final six laps, Almond would try to get back to the bumper of Lipscombe, but Lipscombe would hold his lead and go on to score his first win of the 2023 season. Rounding out the top five were Almond, Billy Hubbard, Nick Davis, and Ray Love, Jr. “It’s taken me two years to get this car where I want it; it is a 2006 Rocket that I have cut up and re-welded this chassis to finally get it to victory lane,” commented Davis Lipscombe in Virginia Is For Racing Lovers victory lane. An invert of four cars put Nick Davis of Millsboro, DE, on the pole for the second 15-lap feature. On the drop of the green flag, Davis jumped to the lead and began to pull away with Corey Almond in tow. Davis paced the first 11 laps with a comfortable lead over Almond. A caution on lap 12 closed Almond up on Davis’s bumper for a restart. On the restart, Davis had Almond to his outside for two corners until Davis pulled away and went on to score the win. Rounding out the top 5 were Almond, Davis Lipscombe, Ray Love, Jr., and Billy Hubbard. “The car was just fantastic tonight; I could put it just about anywhere,” commented Nick Davis in victory lane. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 25-lap feature, Bret Adkins of Saluda, VA, jumped to the lead on the drop of the green flag. Once out front, he only had to fend off one challenge from Tim Shelton before he went on to grab his second victory of 2023. Rounding out the top five were Tim Shelton, Steve Causey, Hunter Wright, and Davis Lipscombe. In the Joe Hudson’s Collision Center Limited Stock 20 lap feature Brian Maxey jumped out to the lead with Trent Clemans and Raymond Harper in tow. Harper would grab the lead from Maxey with an outside move out of turn 4 on lap 4. On lap 10, Johnny Brooks would get to the inside of Harper, and the two raced side-by-side to the line, with Harper holding on to the lead. In turn 2, Brooks finally made the pass and went on to score the win, followed by Trent Clemans, Raymond Harper, Cory Bradley, and Brian Maxey. The speedway will take next weekend off and return to racing on Saturday, August 19, to host week 9 of Dirt Series Championship weekly racing will also feature the Victory Lap Late Model, Truckin Thunder Sportsman, Budweiser Modified, and Collision One Limited Stock divisions in action.

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.
