Redemption for Billy Hubbard with Pro Late Model Win at Virginia Motor Speedway; Arnold, Adkins and Bradley also take Wins

Jamaica, VA – The last time Billy Hubbard of Cobbs Creek, VA came across as the winner in the Victory Lap Pro Late Models at Virginia Motor Speedway the win was taken away due to being three pounds light at the scales. This time Hubbard would clear scales and score a measure of redemption with a convincing win over Justin Williams of Concord, VA. Hubbard would grab the lead on the opening lap and then had to survive several restarts before taking the win. “This feels good to get back to victory lane after what happened at the last race; we were light, and that’s the rules, but we learned something, and hopefully it means good things for us the rest of the season,” commented Hubbard in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rounding out the top five were Justin Williams, Corey Almond, Matt Glanden and Jared Powell. In other action Brett Adkins of Saluda, VA scored his first Truckin Thunder Sportsman win of the season holding off Joe Weiss of Elizabeth City, NC over the final ten laps; in the Budweiser Modified 30 lap feature Chris Arnold of Matoaca, VA pulled a slider on Francis Jarrelle of Henrico, VA to take the lead on the opening lap and taking home a convincing win over Hunter McClendon of Williamsburg, VA; and in the Collision One Limited Stock Car 25 lap feature Cory Bradley of Hopewell, VA led flag to flag to score his second victory of the season. Billy Hubbard and Matt Glanden led the Victory Lap Late Model field to green with Hubbard jumping to the lead. Two laps later Justin Williams grabbed second when Glanden slid up the track in turn 4. Three laps later Williams would begin pressuring Hubbard for the lead, each time being turned away. On lap 9 the races first caution flew for a stopped Chuck Bowie. By lap 15 Hubbard had worked to a five car length advantage over Williams and the field. A caution on lap 18 closed the field on Hubbard’s bumper for the restart. On the restart, Williams would take a shot at Hubbard only to lose the front end of his car and allow Hubbard to pull away to a four car length advantage. On lap 25 Hubbard began to close in on lapped traffic with an eight car length lead over Williams. A caution on lap 29 once again allowed the field to close on Hubbard. On the restart Hubbard would pull away by a couple car lengths only to have the caution come out again. On the restart Williams stayed close to Hubbard, at least for next lap. Hubbard then kept four car lengths between himself and Williams as he went on to score his first win since 2014. Justin Williams, Corey Almond, In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature Brett Adkins and Chase Burrow led the field to green with Adkins leading the first lap followed by Burrow and Joe Weiss. Adkins paced the field with Weiss working his way to second on lap 3. Weiss would close on Adkins and on lap 19 began to work inside Adkins for the lead. Multiple times Weiss would get to Adkins inside only to have Adkins hold on at the line each time. On lap 26 Weiss got a great run under Adkins in turn 2 and had a slight lead heading into turn 3. The two would touch and Weiss would let out the gas not wanting to wreck him sending him sideways and allowing Adkins to pull away. Adkins would go on to score his first win of the season followed by Weiss, Burrow, Tyler Shipp and Steve Causey rounding out the top 5. In the Budweiser Modified 30 lap feature Francis Jarrelle and Chase Butler led the field to green with Chris Arnold completing a slider in turn 3 to take the lead from Jarrelle to lead the first lap. Arnold would have to fend off Hunter McClendon late in the race after several cautions but the only thing that would slow Arnold during the night would be lapped traffic late in the race as he went on to score a convincing flag to flag win over Hunter McClendon, Brandon Galloway, Francis Jarelle and Jeff Solinger. In the Collision One Limited Stock Car 25 lap feature with Brandon Bowler and Cory Bradley leading the field to green. Bradley would rocket to the lead out of turn 2 with Bowler three car lengths back. Fast qualifier James Givens would work his way from eighth to third with an inside move on Chad Champion on lap 7. Bradley and Bowler would pull away from Givens and the rest of the field by lap 16. Best race of the night was a family feud between Chad Champion and Chris Champion as the two traded the fourth spot multiple times before Chris would hold the spot for good. No one had anything for Bradley as he went on to score his second win of the season in a caution free event. Bowler, Givens, Chris Champion and Chad Champion rounded out the top 5.

Corey Almond Inherits Pro Late Model Checkers at the Scales; Shelton, McClendon and Givens all Repeat Winners

Jamaica, VA – What looked to be a convincing win for Billy Hubbard of Cobbs Creek, VA in the Victory Lap Pro Late Model division at Virginia Motor Speedway turned into a disappointing night when the driver was found light at the scales.

That sent the damaged car of Shelton to the rear of the field. After being the in the caution Shelton set out to get back to the front of the field picking off cars one at a time.

COREY ALMOND PASSES JARRED POWELL ON LATE RACE RESTART TO CLAIM SEASON OPENING PRO LATE MODEL VICTORY; Shipp, Jarrelle and Bradley Also Take Wins

Jamaica, VA – After battling for the lead for the first 30 laps of the 35 lap Victory Lap Pro Late Model feature Corey Almond of Appomattox, VA finally got by race leader Jared Powell of Charlottesville, VA on lap 31 to score the victory in a race that featured twenty-eight competitors. On a lap 30 restart Almond jumped inside Powell as they barreled into turn 1 getting door to door as they raced out of turn 2. It took two more turns before Almond would complete the pass but once out front never looked back to go on to take the opening night victory. “I have to thank Jared (Powell) for racing me clean, he was better in lapped traffic than I was so when that last caution came out I knew I had to make my move; thankfully it paid off and we came away with the win,” commented Corey Almond in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rounding out the top five were Jared Powell, Matt Glanden, Davis Lipscombe and Billy Hubbard. In other action Francis Jarrelle of Henrico, VA scored his career first Budweiser Modified victory leading 29 of the 30 lap feature; in the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature Tyler Shipp of Mechanicsville, VA led all 30 laps to score the victory and in the Collision One Limited Stock Car 25 lap feature Cory Bradley of Hopewell, VA took the feature win over James Givens of Henrico, VA. In the Victory Lap Pro Late Model 35 lap feature Same Archer and Jared Powell led the 28 car field to green with Powell taking the lead out of turn 2. By lap 8 Powell and Almond began to pull away from the rest of the field. By lap 19 the two were working lapped traffic with Powell holding Almond at bay. On lap 21 Almond began looking inside Powell but each time Powell would hold to his lead. On lap 29 caution came out closing the field on Powell’s bumper. On the restart Almond jumped inside Powell heading into turn 1 with the two coming out of turn 2 side by side for the lead. Almond would finally grab the lead as the two headed out of turn 4. Once out front Almond would never look back and go onto the win over Powell, Matt Glanden, Davis Lipscombe and Billy Hubbard. In the Budweiser Modified feature Lance Grady and Ryan Toole led the 17 car field to green with Toole grabbing the lead out of turn 2. Toole’s lead wouldn’t last long as Francis Jarrelle grabbed the lead with a pass out of t4. Once out front Jarrelle began to pull away from the battle for second between Toole, Hunter McClendon, Lance Grady, Andy Boahn and Chase Butler. On lap 13 McClendon would get inside Toole for second and set out to catch the leader. On lap 19 McClendon would get inside Jarrelle heading into turn 1 only to see Jarrelle power back around in turn 2. On the next lap McClendon would spin in turn 2 to bring out the caution. Over the final 10 laps no one had anything for Jarrelle as he cruised to his career first victory over Chase Butler, Andy Boahn, Lance Grady and Hunter McClendon. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman Josh Burnham and Tyler Shipp led the 17 car field to green with Tyler Shipp taking command on the opening circuit. On lap 3 Tim Shelton went outside of Burnham in turn 2 to take second. Shelton closed up on Shipp and on lap 8 was looking outside Shipp for the lead only to have Shipp pull away again. On lap 17 the two leaders began to work lapped cars allowing Shelton to get to Shipp’s bumper. That was as close as Shelton would get the rest of the race as Shipp pulled away to take the win over Shelton, Brett Adkins, Joe Weiss and Chase Burrow. In the Collision One Limited Stock Car 25 lap feature Chad Champion and Cory Bradley led the 18 car field to green with Bradley grabbing the lead at the line. On the next circuit James Givens got by Champion for second and set out for Bradley. On lap 4 Givens began working the back bumper of Bradley taking the lead on lap 5. Bradley would shadow Givens over the next 10 laps taking the lead back on lap 16. Over the final nine laps Bradley was able to hold off Givens who battled Trent Clemans for second to the final corner where Clemans spun coming to the checkers with Bradley taking the win over Givens, Jay Seward, Raymond Harper and Ryan Hutchens.

Rounding out the top five were Michael Brown, Tyler Bare, 2017 World Champion Ross Bailes and Matt Long. Jensen Ford, Tyler Bare, Logan Roberson and Brett Hamm picked up heat race wins. Kyle Lukon and Corey Almond were the B Main winners and Chris Blackwell scored the win in the non-qualifiers race. Jensen Ford and Logan Roberson led the 31 car field to green with Ford grabbing the lead out of turn 2. Roberson would get by Ford on lap 4 out of turn 4 to take the lead. Roberson stretched his lead out over Tyler Bare by 10 car lengths until lap the leaders began to work traffic. On lap 20 Bare got inside Roberson out of turn 2 and looked to have a run good enough to take the lead only to have caution come out for a car stopped in turn 4. On the restart Roberson pulled away from the now battle for second between Bare and Michael Brown. On lap 23 Brown swept the outside of bare to take second and set out to catch Roberson. Two laps later the leaders began working traffic and Brown closed on Roberson’s bumper but the battle for the lead was thwarted by a caution on lap 31. On the restart Roberson once again pulled away until he began to run into lapped traffic again. Brown finally got back to Roberson bumper and on lap 51 got inside Roberson for the lead. Roberson would quickly regain the lead on the next corner with a strong move out of turn 2. A final caution on lap 54 tightened the field back on Roberson bumper for the restart. Roberson was able to hold off Brown over the final six laps to score his first FASTRAK win and the biggest win of his career. Following Roberson to the checkers were Brown, Bare, Ross Bailes and Matt Long to round out the top five.
