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.

Lathroum Lands Biggest Payday of Career in USA 100; Erwin Doubles up in Modifieds

Jamaica, VA (Lucas Story by James Essex) – Jamie Lathroum of Mechanicsville, MD a former track champion at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway captured the biggest victory of his racing career on Saturday Night taking home the $20,000 first place in the 33rd Annual USA 100. Lathroum took over the lead on lap 18 and held off Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN for the win in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned event. Steve Francis of Ashland, KY led the first 15 laps of the race until Lathroum forged under him coming off of turn four. Francis then jumped the cushion and was forced to stop on the track before contact with the inside guardrail. On the restart Lathroum would pick up the lead of the race, but a big wreck in turn four involving four cars would change the complexion of the top five. Lathroum would maintain the top spot with Earl Pearson Jr. of Jacksonville, FL and John Blankenship of Williamson, WV running in third. Lathroum would build his lead over Pearson and Blankenship as the drivers approached the halfway mark of the race. Blankenship would squeeze by Pearson for second as he began to run down the leader, Lathroum. Blankenship would close the gap in a hurry as he closed to within a car length of Lathroum, who was having difficulty negotiating lapped car. Blankenship would try to pass Lathroum several times, but could never get a good enough run. Lathroum meanwhile stretched his lead out to a comfortable margin over Blankenship, who was now receiving pressure from the duo of Pearson and Bloomquist. Bloomquist would move into the third spot on lap 43 as he tracked down Blankenship and overhauled him on lap 46. Bloomquist then tried to diamond-off the runs in an effort to catch the high-flying Lathroum, but it was to no avail as Lathroum hit his marks lap after lap as he took his car to Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the first time in his career. He becomes the 15th different winner this year in series competition. “This is just awesome,” said Lathroum, who emerged from his MasterSbilt by Huey with tears in his eyes. “This is the biggest win of my career and to outrun Bloomquist, O’Neal and the rest of these guys is just unbelievable, I have to thank my crew, everybody here at Virginia Motor Speedway, my family and the fans,” said the 33-year-old, whose biggest win before tonight was a $10,000 victory in 2009. Lathroum, who captured the late Model track title at VMS back in 2005, said keeping his car away from the bumps and cushion was critical to his success. “I tried to stay away from all of that, there were guys jumping the cushion, it would bite you if you let it, I just tried to be smooth lap after lap and we got it done,” said the driver of the Three Mules Welding, Claar Logging, Superior Tank, The Bowles Boys, Lathroum’s Seafood, Integra, Abell Auto Glass and Eugene Copsey’s Plumbing. His car is powered by an Eatmon Racing Engine. Bloomquist would come home in second followed by Blankenship, Don O’Neal of Martinsville, IN, who pitted twice during the race finished fourth and Pearson rounded out the top five. Completing the top ten were: Tyler Reddick of Corning, CA; Jimmy Owens of Newport, TN; Jared Landers of Batesville, AR; Dan Stone of Thompson, PA; and Walker Arthur of Forest, VA. In the Modified Madness 25 for the Budweiser Modifieds Chris Parker of Lumber Bridge, NC got the jump on Dan Arnold of Chester, VA for the lead and kept it until his car slowed on a lap 9 restart handing the lead over to Russell Erwin of Beaverdam, VA. On the restart, Arnold would bring out another caution and head pit side with right front end damage. Erwin would continue with the lead while the rest of the field battled for positions. But no one had anything for Erwin as he would go on to make it a clean sweep during the USA 100 weekend, winning for the second time in his #22 Erwin Racing Supply Shaw. Rounding out the top five were Brandon Galloway, Page Harrison, Bret Hamilton and Craig Ramich. With the round track season now done the speedway will focus on getting ready for Saturday October 6th as The Pit at Virginia Motor Speedway hosts the 8th Annual Run-A-Muck Mud Bog, Mud Sling and Truck Show presented by Rappahannock Tractor and the Virginia Army National Guard. Additional sponsorship provided by Davis Off Road, Monster Energy Drinks, ORI of Richmond, Collision One and Truckin Thunder. There will be nine classes of “Mud Maniacs” in action ranging from stock to unlimited with cash payouts in all classes. Not only will fans get to see hordes of trucks splashing through the 200 foot Mud Bog pit but they will also get the opportunity to see some of the region’s best Mud Dragsters covering the 200 foot Mud Sling pit in under three seconds. New for this year’s event will be the addition of a truck show for all those guys and gals that don’t like to get their rides dirty. The truck show will help raise funds for the children of the late Chuck Engel. Engel, a frequent competitor in his truck Mud Life Crisis, passed away un-expectantly on July 7th of this year. The funds raised will go to the trust fund set up for his five children. There will be awards given out in multiple categories that will include best Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge and Import.
