Hoosier’s National Tire Shortage Forces Cancellation of This Weekend’s Prelude to the World Championship

Hoosier’s National Tire Shortage Forces Cancellation of This Weekend’s Prelude to the World Championship

Jamaica, Virginia – The current Hoosier tire shortage has forced officials at Virginia Motor Speedway and FASTRAK Racing to cancel this weekend’s Prelude to the World Championship event. After exhausting all avenues available to get enough FT200 and FT400 compounds to cover the number of cars expected to contend for the $3000 top prize, the difficult decision was to cancel the event for 2021. “We have been in conversations with Hoosier Tire for several weeks now about the number of tires available as it is not only affecting this FASTRAK tour event but also our weekly racing,” commented Virginia Motor owner Bill Sawyer. Sawyer added, “unfortunately, there are just not enough tires available for not only the Pro Late Models but also for two of our weekly divisions; there is just no way to get the tires manufactured in time for the event.” This cancellation comes on the heels of the track’s 45th annual USA 100 falling to rain. The cancellation will also affect the three weekly divisions scheduled to compete as support divisions to the FASTRAK Touring Series. “I support Bill and Virginia Motor Speedway’s decisions on this,” commented FASTRAK Racing Owner/Founder Stan Lester. “No different than our Charlotte event when we had to cancel it. That difficult decision made sure that our weekly tracks had tires. Even though many of our tour events have been canceled, it’s the responsibility of the series to ensure that our weekly tracks can race first, then the tour afterward. Hopefully, this move will ensure we have plenty of tires for the World Championship,” added Lester. Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway is a ½ mile dirt oval track located on U.S. Route 17, eight miles north of Saluda, VA, and 25 miles south of Tappahannock, VA, in Jamaica, VA.

Matt Quade and Justin Williams Take Pro Late Model Wins; Solinger and Brooks Become First-time Winners; Lipscombe, Butler, and Maxey Return to Victory Lane

Jamaica, VA – It didn’t take long for Justin Williams of Concord, VA to get to the front from his sixth-place starting position, two corners to be exact. On the drop of the green flag, Williams split the field getting to the front in a three-wide move that saw Williams grabbing the lead out of turn 2. Chuck Bowie and Jeremy Pilkerton led the field to green and as they raced into turn one it went three wide as Williams shot up through the middle of the field. Once out front, Williams began to pull away from the field. By lap 15 it looked as if Pilkerton was gaining on the leader, but Williams just put it in high gear and pulled away again. Williams would go on to score a dominating win, after a frustrating first race, for his fourth win of the season. “I think the two guys up front were playing games with each other which allowed me to make the move for the lead, once out front I just tried to make sure the tires stayed under me,” commented Justin Williams in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rounding out the top five were Matt Glanden Josh Canipe, Matthew Hillebrand, and Ray Love, Jr. In the Budweiser Modified feature Lance Grady of Hanover, VA would grab the lead on the opening circuit but give up the lead to Jeff Solinger on lap 2. Chase Butler of Mechanicsville, VA would grab the lead on lap 10 from Solinger with an outside move out of turn 4. With the laps winding down Brandon Galloway, with the help of several cautions, closed up to the bumper of Butler pressuring him the lead. But Butler was up for the challenge scoring the win and becoming the first repeat winner in the Budweiser Modified division. Rounding out the top five were Galloway, In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature Tim Shelton of Fredericksburg, VA led the first five laps before Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA would take it 3-wide inside Shelton and Tyler Shipp to take the lead. Once out front Lipscpmbe would pull away from everyone but his teammate Shipp. Shipp tried to keep pace only to see Lipscombe go on to his sixth win of the season. Rounding out the top five were Tyler Shipp, Matt Ashworth, Steve Causey, and Matt Meads. In the Collision One Limited Stock Car feature points leader Brian Maxy of King George, VA returned to his winning ways, grabbing the lead on the drop of the green flag and went on to score his fifth win of the season. Johnny Brooks, Cory Bradley, and Raymond Harper tried to keep pace to no avail as Maxey would cruise to the victory. Rounding out the top five were Johnny Brooks, James Givens, Cory Bradley, and Sean Otey. JULY 17 MAKE-UP FEATURES In the Victory Lap Pro Late Model July 17 make-up feature Matt Quade of Avenue, MD got under point leader Justin Williams on lap 16 to take the lead out of turn two and go on to score his first win of the season. Brad Rigdon would lead the first four laps until Williams would make a bold move on the outside to take the lead. Williams would lose the lead to Quade on a lap 16 restart when Quade would get under him out of turn 2. Quade would go on to score the win in front of Matt Glanden, Joey Love, Trevor Collins, and Curtis Hughes. In the Budweiser Modified July 17 make-up feature Jeff Solinger of Bumpass, VA cored his career-first victory, leading flag to flag on way to the win. Rounding out the top five were Chase butler, Lane Grady, Brandon Galloway, and Brent Bordeaux. In the Collision One Limited Stock Car make-up feature someone finally ended up in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane as Johnny Brooks of Aylett, VA scored his career-first victory in a caution-filled affair.
