Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth Canceled amid Extreme Weather Forecast

Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth Canceled amid Extreme Weather Forecast

Jamaica, Virginia (April 6, 2016) – After extensive discussion and study of weather forecasts for the area, officials of Virginia Motor Speedway have reluctantly decided to cancel Saturday’s $20,000 to win Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth. The National Weather Service is forecasting temps well below freezing for Saturday along with 20 MPH winds. There is also a high percentage of precipitation forecasted which would make preparing the track for the event difficult if not impossible. Without a suitable make-up date the event will be postponed until 2017. However the Aaron’s title sponsorship and the $20,000 to win purse will be transferred to the USA 100 which is scheduled on Saturday, June 4th. “This is obviously not what we wanted to happen with this event. We have poured a lot of time, effort and resources into making the Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth a success. But the weather forecast is just ominous. We were hoping that it would improve but those cold temps and wind coupled with the precipitation that we will surely get and there is just no way that we could expect people to be here and be able to enjoy the event. So we will take care of our friends at Aaron’s by transferring that title to the USA 100 in June.” said Virginia Motor Speedway Director of Marketing and PR Dave Seay. “It is very unfortunate but there isn’t anything anyone can do about the weather. Saturday just looks miserable. It just doesn’t make any sense to ask people to try to endure that kind of weather. We hate to lose a race anytime but sometimes you just have to play the cards that are dealt and do what’s best for everyone. On the bright side the weather looks good for Potomac on Friday so the weekend won’t be a total washout.” said ULTIMATE Series Owner and Founder Stan Lester. Virginia Motor Speedway will be back in action on Saturday April 16th for the opening night of Aaron’s Dirt Series Championship action featuring the Victory Lap Pro Late Model, Truckin Thunder Sportsman, Budweiser Modified and Collision One Limited Stock Car divisions in action....

Jamaica, VA – The excitement level for the 39th Annual Aaron’s USA 100 has been kicked up a notch or two with the announcement that the event will now be part of a the four race mini-series billed as the Colonial Clash Championship presented by Dirt Nation and also pay $15,000 to win.

All four shows will be sanctioned by the Ultimate Super Late Model Series. “We wanted to do something to bolster up car counts and try to bring in more of the traveling fans to our USA 100 event. We knew if we could work together with some of the other tracks and promoters in the region that we could do just that. It just shows that promoters can work together and have it be a good situation for everyone involved. The USA 100 was already a big event but when you add these other races along with the point fund and the increase in the purse for the event I believe we can turn up the excitement and bring more drivers, sponsors and race fans into the fold.” said Virginia Motor Speedway’s Bill Sawyer. On Thursday, June 2nd the mini-series will open at Delaware’s Georgetown Speedway for a $4000 to win, 40 lap event. Friday, June 3rd Potomac Speedway in Bud’s Creek, Maryland will host a $5000 to win, 50 lap event.

Randy Weaver Crowned Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth; Walker Arthur Wins $3000 FASTRAK National Tour Event

Randy Weaver Crowned Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth; Walker Arthur Wins $3000 FASTRAK National Tour Event

Jamaica, Virginia (April 11, 2015) – Coming into the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series sanctioned Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth at Virginia Motor Speedway the name being talked about more than any other was the white-hot Randy Weaver of Crossville, Tennessee. After all, the 45 year old driver was off to his best season start of his career having won each of the 4 events he had entered thus far. So most of the dirt late model world was wondering if Weaver could keep his winning streak alive at a facility he had never even seen before. And what was Weaver’s answer? A resounding yes in the form of a dominating win that saw him set overall fast time, win his heat race and lead every lap of the sixty lap feature to garner the biggest payday of his career. “The good Lord is being real good to me right now and I don’t know why. I owe everything to Him. But man what a race car and crew. I’m tellin’ ya anybody in them grandstands can drive this thing. It about drives itself. And Josh and Grant and my owners Chip and Rusty Stone are here this weekend. This awesome Cornett power. This Longhorn Chassis, everywhere we go…I mean I have never seen this place, I have just heard great things about it, and I can’t believe that my name is in history down here now.” said a very jubilant Weaver in his victory lane interview. Weaver picks up his second ULTIMATE Super Late Model victory of the season which is his richest to date. “What an incredible facility here. This is just an awesome place. For promoters to take a chance like this in our sport…we really appreciate facilities like Virginia Motor Speedway.” In other action Walker Arthur of Forest, VA dominated on way to a $3000 victory during the 40 lap FASTRAK National Tour event. It was the inaugural race for the new FASTRAK National Tour. At the drop of the green flag for the Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth Weaver surged to the lead. And while out front Weaver’s progress was only slowed as he encountered lapped traffic it was a very different story behind him. Davenport and Zeigler waged a battle for the runner-up spot from the outset. Davenport was able to slip into 2nd on the opening lap. However on the 4th circuit Zeigler was able to use his outside line to grab 2nd while Bloomquist and Chris Madden gave chase from the 4th and 5th positions. Davenport continued to stalk Zeigler and when Bloomquist jumped into the mix, Davenport turned up the wick. Bloomquist rolled by Davenport down the back straightaway but Davenport would have no part of it. He drove his Longhorn machine to the high side of turns 3 and 4 moving back by Bloomquist and setting up Zeigler for the slider through turns one and two to retake the 2nd position. Up front Weaver was cruising but beginning to encounter back marker traffic. Weaver was able to negotiate the lap machines with relative ease as he was able to move his race car all over the track when he needed to. However Weaver’s only real scare of the event came as he was attempting to put Ricky Elliott down a lap. Weaver entered turn 3 hard in order to slide by the high running Elliott. Weaver’s machine began to hop wildly as he slid up the track. No harm, no foul for Weaver however as the yellow waved for the final time of the night when Earl Pearson, Jr. stopped on the track. Weaver was able to continue with no issues after the scare. “I thought I had knocked the tires off it there. I heard them call for the caution and I was checking up as it was sliding to the outside. I shook it back and forth and made sure everything was still under me.” Weaver added. Under him it was as he powered away on the final restart and held on to win the $20,000 winner’s purse. Davenport settled for 2nd and Bloomquist finished in the 3rd position. In addition to the nice payday, event title-sponsor Aaron’s Inc. presented Weaver with a new 49” LG 4K Ultra HD Television as a part of the Aaron’s “Best Seat in the House” Promotion. The win was Weaver’s 5th in a row for 2015 and brought his 2015 winnings to over $45,000. To say the first ever FASTRAK National Tour event was a success would be an understatement as 37 of the East Coast’s top Pro Late Model ushered in a new era in FASTRAK racing. Local favorite and former track champion Walker Arthur of Forest, VA etched his name into the record books by winning the first event FASTRAK National Tour event in dominating fashion. The first ever National Tour race was a companion event for the Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth sanctioned by its sister series the Ultimate Super Late Model tour. “We’ve turned a lot of laps around this place but this has to be one of the biggest wins I have ever had here at VMS. The car has been so good all year and it ran just flawless tonight; event though we didn’t do as well as we want in the Super Late model tonight, we are super excited about winning the first ever FASTRAK National Tour event here at our home track,” commented Arthur in victory lane. At the drop of the green flag Arthur rocketed to the lead from his pole position as David Smith, Jimmy Schiltz, Daniel Baggerly and Mark Parks went four wide to decide second. With the action behind him Arthur pulled away to a comfortable lead. By lap 11 Arthur began working lapped traffic while the battle for second continued between Smith, Parks and Schiltz. At the halfway point Arthur maintained almost a full straight lead over the field while masterfully working lapped traffic. With plenty of two, three and even four wide racing behind him Arthur continued to stretch out the lead. On lap 20 Kennie Compton Jr. joined the battle for second picking off drivers one by one until he finally claimed the spot from Smith on lap 30. With 10 laps remaining Compton tried to reel in the leader but Arthur was too strong going on to take the $3000 victory with Compton, Smith, Parks and Schiltz, Matt Long, 2014 FASTRAK World Champion Tim Dohm, Dillon Brown, Daniel Baggerly and Jared Powell rounding out the top ten. In addition to Arthur’s $3000 payday, event title-sponsor Aaron’s Inc. presented Arthur with a new 49” LG 4K Ultra HD Television as a part of the Aaron’s “Best Seat in the House” Promotion. The Fast Time Award went to Dillon Brown with a time of 18.563 seconds. Heat race wins went to Walker Arthur, David Smith, Daniel Baggerly and Jimmy Schiltz. B-Main wins went to Jimmy Duncan and Colby Cannon.

The other is the May 16th TireX USA 100 which is one of the longest running events in Dirt Late Model racing. “We are all very excited to be involved with Aaron’s and TireX as title sponsors of our events at Virginia Motor Speedway. VMS is such a fantastic facility and I could not be happier about having the opportunity to have 2 events there in 2015. Bill and Clark Sawyer are some of the classiest people in the racing business and it is a pleasure to work with them and Dave Seay and the entire staff there. The Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth is the biggest event of the year for our guys and I know they are going to come out and put on a great show for the fans there.” said ULTIMATE Series Director Kelley Carlton. One of the most interesting aspects of the Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth in 2015 will be the diverse group of drivers expected to attend. With many of the national touring drivers committed to tour events, the Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth should draw one of the best regional fields in recent history. “We have had calls from all over the eastern half of the country. I really believe this is going to be a great field of race cars and the fans in attendance will have the opportunity to see some drivers they may have heard of but never seen in the area. We also think there may be a few surprise entrants that will spice things up as well.” Carlton added. The Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth is scheduled for Saturday, April 11th at Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, Virginia. The 60 lap feature will pay $20,000 to win and boasts a very strong payout through the field. Spectator gates open at 4 pm with on-track action beginning at 6 pm with hot laps for both divisions followed by qualifying, heats, B-Main(s) and features. Admission price for adults is only $30, seniors (60+) $27; military (active/retired w/ proper I.D.) $25, students 11 – 17 years old $12 and children 10 and under admitted free.
