Logan Roberson Holds off Late Charge by Michael Brown for $20,000 FASTRAK World Championship Victory

Jamaica, VA – Logan Roberson of Waynesboro, VA has been the bridesmaid on eight FASTRAK sanctioned events, that was until tonight when he took home the biggest win of his career on the biggest stage in Pro Late Model racing, the $20,000 to win FASTRAK World Championship.

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.

Corey Almond Grabs First Pro Late Model Victory at Virginia Motor Speedway; Hamilton, Causey and Givens also visit WhosYourDriver.org Victory Lane

Corey Almond Grabs First Pro Late Model Victory at Virginia Motor Speedway; Hamilton, Causey and Givens also visit WhosYourDriver.org Victory Lane

Jamaica, VA – A win at Virginia Motor Speedway has been eluding Corey Almond of Appomattox, VA for several years now, but that is not the case anymore as he pulled away late to take home the victory. Several cautions on the start of the feature moved Almond up to the front row. On the drop of the green flag Almond took the lead from Ryan Adams of Madison Heights, VA and began to pull away from the field. Almond held off several challenges by Matt Quade and Mark Parks to take home the victory. “We have been working really hard to get a victory here at Virginia Motor Speedway, I hate that I slid up on that first start and got into Davis (Lipscombe) but it doesn’t take away from what I am feeling right now,” commented and emotional Almond in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rounding out the top five were Mark Parks, Ryan Adams, Matt Quade and Bobby Thompson. In other action Steve Causey of Smithfield, VA scored his career first Truckin Thunder Sportsman victory at VMS and became the fourth winner in as many races; in the Budweiser Modified 30 lap feature Bret Hamilton of Powhatan, VA became the fourth winner in as many races by holding off a charging Tim Schulte of Troy, VA for the win and in the Collision One Limited Stock Car 25 lap feature James Givens of Sandston, VA held off Cory Bradley of Hopewell, VA at the line to score his third win of the season. Matt Glanden and Ryan Adams led the Victory Lap Pro Late Model 19 car field to green with the caution coming out for a wreck in turn one. It took another two tries to get the race started before Corey Almond would take control of the race. For the first 14 laps Almond had to hold off the challenges of Matt Quade. Quade would have to come to pit road on lap 15 to fix a flat right rear tire. On the restart Mark Parks tried to sweep the outside of Almond but could not pull off the pass. Almond would pull away and use the traffic to his advantage. With all the battling behind him Almond was able to dominate the remainder of the race and take home his first VMS victory. Rounding out the top five were Mark Parks, Ryan Adams, Matt Quade and Bobby Thompson. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature Tyler Shipp and Steve Causey led the field to green with Causey grabbing the lead out of turn 2. Behind him the battle went three wide with fast Qualifier Brett Adkins going to the outside to move to third from his sixth place starting position. On lap 5 Adkins took second from Shipp and set out to run down the leader Causey. On the final 25 laps Adkins would take several shots at Causey for the lead only to be turned away each time. Causey would hold on to grab his first Virginia Motor Speedway victory. Rounding out the top five were Adkins, Mark Gonzales, Hunter Shelton and Michael Hayes. The box score may show that Bret Hamilton led all 30 laps of the Budweiser Modified feature but what it doesn’t show is how hard that victory was for Hamilton. Tim Schulte and Hamilton led the 17 car field to green with Hamilton taking control of the top spot out of turn 2. By lap 10 the leaders were working their way through traffic with Hamilton using the top and Schulte down on the bottom. With eight laps to go Schulte began getting a run on Hamilton each time out of both turn 2 and turn 4. Each time Hamilton was able to hold him off at the line. A caution with two to go set up a green, white, checkered finish. On the restart Hamilton was able to get a couple of car lengths over Schulte only to have Schulte close that gap back up. With one to go Schulte got a run on Hamilton in turn three but Hamilton took away his line and hold him off for the win. Rounding out the top five were Schulte, Francis Jarrelle, Ryan Toole and Mike Reynolds. In the Collision One Limited Stock feature Chad Champion and Trent Clemans led the field to green. Clemans would jump to the lead out of turn 2 with Champion and James Givens in close pursuit. Givens would get by Champion for second on lap 2 and the two would beat and bang a bit before Givens settled into the spot. On the next lap Givens began applying pressure to the bumper of Clemans for the lead and on lap 6 Givens got to the outside to take the top spot. Once out front Givens looked to be in control of the race. That is until final five laps when Cory Bradley entered the picture. Bradley tried several times to get inside Givens for the lead but couldn’t pull off the pass. On the final lap Bradley made one last ditch effort to take the lead, this time getting side by sode as they raced to the checkers. Givens would hold off Bradley by a bumper at the line for the win.

Davis Lipscombe Goes Flag to Flag for the Pro Late Model victory; Shipp, Arnold and Givens also take Wins.

Davis Lipscombe Goes Flag to Flag for the Pro Late Model victory; Shipp, Arnold and Givens also take Wins.

Jamaica, VA – I has been two long years since Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA visited victory lane in the Victory Lap Pro Late Model division at Virginia Motor Speedway; the wait is over as Lipscombe led flag to flag to claim the 35 lap victory on Truckin Thunder / Northern Neck Chevrolet Night. Lipscombe held off an initial challenge by week 1 winner Mark Parks of Lynchburg, VA to grab the lead. Lipscombe held off a late challenge by Logan Roberson of Waynesboro, VA for the victory. “We almost gave up on racing, I am really glad we didn’t. It has been a tough two years but we have put a lot of effort into this car and we have come up with the needed speed we needed, it feels so good to finally be back in victory lane,” commented Lipscombe in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. In other action Tyler Shipp of Mechanicsville, VA led flag to flag in the Truckin Thunder Sportsman feature to pick up the win; in the Budweiser Modified feature Chris Arnold of Matoaca, VA swept the outside of Joey Polevoy of Powhatan, VA on lap two to take the lead and go on to the victory; and in the Collision One Limited Stock feature James Givens of Henrico, VA made it two in a row scoring the victory with an outside pass on Chad Champion of Beaverdam, VA on lap 6. Davis Lipscombe and mark Parks led the Victory Lap Pro Late Model field to the green with Lipscombe using the bottom line to grab the lead. The two raced side by side for several laps before Lipscombe began to pull away with the lead. That left Parks to race for second with Matt Quade, Logan Roberson, Jared Powell and Corey Almond. When the dust settled it was Roberson with the second spot and working to run down the leader. Roberson made severl runs at Lipscombe but was unable to grab the lead. Lipscombe would go on to score the victory by a mere .755 seconds. Rounding out the top five were Roberson, Matt Quade, Corey Almond and Mark Parks. In the Budweiser Modified 30 lap feature Chase Butler and Joey Polevoy led the field to green with Polevoy take the lead from the outside. On the next lap Chris Arnold powered his way around the outside of Polevoy for the lead. Once out front Arnold pulled away as the battle for second heated up. Butler, Hunter McClendon, Ryan Toole and Bret Hamilton put on a great show for the fans. McClendon would take over second but was never able to get close enough to challenge for the lead. Arnold would win with McClendon, Butler, Ryan Toole and Bret Hamilton rounding out the top five. Tyler Shipp and Chad Beahr led the Truckin Thunder Sportsman field to green with Shipp grabbing the lead with a four wide battle for second behind him. Beahr, Tim Shelton, Steve Causey and Mark Gonzales went four wide on several occasions battling for second with Causey taking over that spot. Causey got close several times was unable to make a charge for the lead. Shipp would lead flag to flag to grab a very emotional win that he dedicated to his late Grandmother. Rounding out the top five were Steve Causey, Tim Shelton, Joe Weiss and Mark Gonzales. In the Collision One Limited Stock feature James Givens took over the top spot from Chad champion on lap 6 with a strong outside pass in turn 1. Once out front Givens was able to pull away from Champion, Cory Bradley and Mark Schools. Champion, Bradley and Trent Clemans traded the second spot on several occasions before Champion settled into the runner-up spot. Givens would score his second win in a row in the division followed by Champion, Bradley, Mark Schools and Randy Hutchens.
