Bowie would go on to score the win ahead of Pilkerton, Billy Hubbard, Nick Davis, and Curtis Hughes. “This is only the second race on this car, after wrecking it at Hagerstown Speedway a couple of weeks ago; I can’t thank my wife for all the hard work she puts into making this car go fast,” commented Bowie in Virginia Is For Racing Lovers victory lane.

Pilkerton would drive it deep into turn 1 on the final lap, closing the gap and looking inside as they raced out of turn 2. In turn 3, Pilkerton again drove it in deep, this time trying the outside of Davis. Pilkerton would get door to door as the two raced to the line but would lose by about a nose. After going over the scales, Davis was found to be light and was Dq’d, giving the win to Pilkerton. Rounding out the top five were Chuck Bowie, Bud Stinson, Jarrett Edwards, and Curtis Hughes. “I hate winning this way; this is Davis’s win. But we will take the win and second place finish in the first race and work to be better next race,” commented Pilkerton in Virginia Is For Racing Lovers victory lane. In the Budweiser Modified 25-lap feature, it didn’t take long for Chase Butler of Mechanicsville, VA, to get to the front from his fourth-place starting position, catching race leader Doug Penny of Vass, NC, on lap three as he went to the outside to take the lead. Once in the lead, Butler pulled away with Penny in tow, and the battle for third heating up.

Speedway Cancels Racing Activities for Saturday, April 29

Jamaica, VA – After much discussion and thought, speedway management has decided to cancel racing activities for Saturday, April 29, due to saturated grounds. “We have had so much rain that the grass parking areas have standing water, and it looks like a lake out there,” said track owner Bill Sawyer. “We hate to cancel an event, but there is no way to get the facility dry enough for an event, and with the chance of more thunderstorms tonight we had no other choice but to cancel so that we could notify our competitors and fans.” The Speedway will return to host the FASTRAK Touring Series Saturday, May 6th for a $5000 to-win event. Some of the best Pro Late Model drivers on the East Coast will be on hand for this event. The night will also feature the Truckin Thunder Sportsman, Budweiser Modified, and Collision One Limited Stock Car divisions in weekly racing action. Spectator gates will open at 5 pm, and on-track action beginning at 5:30 pm with hot laps. Adult admission is $20, senior/military $15, students (13-17) $10, and children 12 and under free. Pit passes, regardless of age are $35. 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. The Speedway is just a short drive from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Southern Maryland, and the Hampton Roads area....
