ULTIMATE Sanctioned USA 100 at Virginia Motor Speedway Postponed Until Friday August 23rd

ULTIMATE Sanctioned USA 100 at Virginia Motor Speedway Postponed Until Friday August 23rd

Jamaica, Virginia – For the second time this season Officials of the Virginia Motor Speedway and the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series have elected to postpone the 34th Annual USA 100. The event which was originally scheduled for May 18th was delayed then until July 13th because of weather. And now with bad weather looming yet again officials have postponed the event again until Friday, August 23rd. “This is extremely disappointing but we have just been inundated with rain over the last two days and with the forecast still calling for even more of the same this was the only thing we could do; maybe the third time will be a charm,” commented track owner Bill Sawyer. The Friday night date will also allow the track and series to take advantage of the off night for the World of Outlaws who will be racing the following day at Winchester Speedway in nearby Winchester, Virginia. “The eastern seaboard and really most of the country has been plagued by continued rainfall over the last few weeks and that has left the ground saturated everywhere. So any additional rain just wreaks havoc for us racing promoters. Virginia Motor Speedway has been having rain off and on all day today (Friday) and the rain chances are still high for tomorrow. It’s just a no win situation. But we feel like we have picked another good date for the make-up and we will proceed with that. I want to thank the Sawyer family, Ernie Shelton, Dave Seay, Brian Tidball and the entire staff at Virginia Motor Speedway for working with us so closely and trying to take care of our drivers and fans. We are always excited about going to VMS so now we can continue to build that excitement up for a little while longer.” said ULTIMATE Series CEO and Founder Stan Lester. The speedway will return to racing Saturday July 27th for Virginia Army National Guard Tribute Night. The event will be a tribute to the fallen Virginia National Guard soldiers. There will be several displays and the speedway will help in raising funds for both the Some Gave All and Wounded Warrior charities.

The event will pay $10,000 to win and continue with the fan friendly format of two twenty-five lap qualifying races to make it into the fifty lap “A” main. “The USA 100 is one of the longest running late model events in the country and we felt it was important to keep the tradition going; after discussions with Ernie Shelton the owner of the USA 100 and Stan Lester of the Ultimate Super Late Model Series a deal was struck to bring it back for 2013,” commented track owner Bill Sawyer. The USA 100 will take the place of the previously scheduled Ultimate Super Late Model sanctioned Mid-Atlantic Spring Championship on Saturday May 18th. This will be the third year that the series has sanctioned an event at the ½ mile speed plant. “It’s an honor to be a part of one of the county’s longest running races.

This will be the eighth year that the USA 100 will be contested at Virginia Motor Speedway. In the previous seven years there has yet to be a repeat winner. Ernie Shelton, with sanctioning from the Mid-Atlantic Championship Series (MACS), first brought the event to the speedway in 2006. “This takes us back to our roots by having a regional touring series sanction the event and I looking forward to working with the Ultimate Super Late Model Series this year; as I have stated in the past the perfect home for the USA 100 is and will always be Virginia Motor Speedway,” commented Ernie Shelton. More details about the event will be released at a later date. Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway, an ASA Member Track, is a 1/2-mile, dirt oval.

Jeremy Miller and Chris Madden led the field to green with Miller taking the top spot and the lead out of turn 2. Miller looked to be untouchable as he pulled away from the field and began lapping slower cars by lap 8. On lap 12 Madden had to hold off Dale McDowell for second as they worked through lapped traffic. In Lap 16 McDowell got inside off Madden out of turn 2, as they raced back into three Steve Shaver made it three wide coming out of turn 4 to take third.

On lap 35, with the lead duo working lapped traffic, Shaver got inside Miller coming out of turn 4 and nipped Miller for the lead at the line. Miller would rocket back to the lead in turn 1 with Shaver in close pursuit. On lap 46 Shaver began testing the outside of Miller and on each successive lap would pull alongside to challenge for the lead. On lap 48 shaver dove it in deep in turn 1 and when the two exited turn 2 Shaver had pulled off the pass for the lead and would go on to score the $10,000 victory. Rounding out the top five were Jeremy Miller, Dale McDowell, Rick Eckert, and Jamie Lathroum. Heat race wins went to Chris Madden, Jeremy Miller, Jamie Lathroum and Chris Ferguson. B Main win went to Ricky Elliott. In other action the speedway had two first time winners as Chris Arnold of Petersburg, VA led flag to flag for his first win in the Budweiser Modified division and junior Carter of Mechanicsville, VA held off Todd Trayor of King William, VA for his first Truckin Thunder Sportsman victory. In the Budweiser Modified 25 feature Chris Arnold of Petersburg, VA led flag to flag for his career first win at Virginia Motor Speedway. Behind him current point leader brian Dobie and former track champion Brett Hamilton put on a show for the fans racing side by side for second for ten laps. Dobie would take second by inches at the line over Hamilton with Page Harrison and defending track champion Dan Arnold rounding out the top 5. Donnie Smith was the Pitts Lumber Rookie of the Race with his ninth place finish. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 25 lap feature Junior Carter and Davey Pullen led the field to green with Carter controlling the top spot. On lap 11 Todd Trayor got past Pullen for second and began to reel in the leader. On lap 18 Traylor began applying pressure for the lead looking inside Carter at every corner. Each time Carter was up to the task and the laps wound down. With the fans on their feet Traylor pushed Carter for all he was worth only to come up short as Carter would take his career first Sportsman win with Traylor glued to his bumper. Rounding out the top five were Stephen Childress, Brett Adkins and Taylor Doggett. Brett Adkins was the Pitts Lumber rookie of the Race with his fourth place finish.

ULTIMATE SUPER LATE MODELS SET TO RETURN MAY 19

Jamaica, VA – The inaugural visit by the ULTIMATE Super Late Model to Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway was hot in more ways than one. With temperatures at 105 degrees teams poured in for the series first visit to the ½ mile clay oval in Jamaica, VA.

With the event a little over two weeks away teams are already looking forward to the $10,000 to win Mid-Atlantic Spring Championship presented by FK Rod Ends. “We are really looking forward to having the Ultimate Super Late Model series back as they put on one of the best races of the year in really adverse conditions, this year we hope the cooler temperatures will make for an even better event,” commented track General Manager Clarke Sawyer.
