Brett Adkins and Matt Quade Score Emotional Victories; McClendon and Givens also grab wins.

Jamaica, VA – On an emotional night where the racing community rallied around the Adkins family after losing their five-year old son Camden two weeks earlier got a fairy tale ending with Brett Adkins of Saluda, VA parking it in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane scoring an emotional win over Tim Shelton of Fredericksburg, VA. Adkins would pass Shelton for the lead on lap 24 after Shelton jumped the cushion in turn 2. Adkins would hold off several late challenges for the lead to score the victory to the delight and cheers of the big crowd in attendance. “I really don’t know what to say, a couple weeks ago my life took a bad corner, I can’t thank all of you enough for being behind me and my family, it has helped make the situation a little easier and help me get to today,” commented a very emotional Adkins in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rounding out the top five were Shelton, Matt meads, Taylor Doggett and Mark Gonzales. In the exciting Victory Lap Pro Lap Pro Late Model feature Matt Quade of Mechanicsville, MD held off Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA and fast qualifier Logan Roberson of Waynesboro, VA to claim his second win of the season. Quade dedicated the win to his Grandfather, who is currently in hospice. “We have been busting our butts off, and we have the car going good and I can’t thank everyone enough. This one is for my grandfather, wish he could be here right now because he would love this,” commented an emotional Quade in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rounding out the top five were Lipscombe, Roberson, Matt Glanden and Brad Rigdon. In other action Hunter McClendon of Williamsburg, VA got past Bret Hamilton of Powhatan, VA on lap 20 of the Budweiser Modified feature to score his third win of the season and in the Collision One Limited Stock Car division James Givens of Henrico, VA claimed his fifth win of the season after a spirited battle with Trent Clemans of Mechanicsville, VA. In the Victory Lap Pro Late Model feature, Tyler Bare and Matt Quade led the 18 car field to green. Quade would get a good run off of turn two to lead the first circuit. The races first caution would fly on lap two for a slowing Bare. On the restart Quade and Logan Roberson would begin a side-by-side battle that lasted for most of the 35 laps feature. With Roberson working the cushion and Quade in the middle groove the two would come to the finish line separated by inches. On lap 20 Roberson jumped the cushion in turn 2 and Lipscombe took advantage to grab the second spot. With Quade only inches in front of the battle for second, the fans were on their feet as the three drivers put on a show. Quade would hold to take the win followed by Lipscombe, Roberson, Matt Glanden and Brad Rigdon. Charlie Hubbard and Bret Hamilton led the Budweiser Modified field to green with Hamilton taking control of the race out of turn 2. The races first caution would fly on lap 2 for a slowing Ryan Toole. On the restart Hamilton jumped out to a three-car length advantage over Hunter McClendon. That advantage would quickly be erased as the two began working through lapped traffic. On lap 11 Hamilton got caught behind a lapped car allowing McClendon to get to his inside and grab the lead. Once out front McClendon pulled away from Hamilton, Josh Harris and Chris Arnold battling for second as he went on to collect his third win of the season. Hamilton Harris, Arnold and Charlie Hubbard rounded out the top five. In the Collision One Limited Stock feature Chad champion and Trent Clemans led the field to green with the battle for the lead going three wide as they barreled into turn 1. Clemans would come out of turn 2 with the lead followed by Chad Champion and Cory Bradley. On lap 10 Champion and Bradley would get together in turn 4 to bring out the races second caution, which put James Givens on second. The two leaders would battle side by side for the next 10 laps until Clemans would lose a left rear tire turn 1 while racing side by side with Givens. Givens would go on to collect his fifth win of the season. Raymond Harper, David bowler, Chad Champion and Brandon Bowler would round out the top five. The last race of the night, the 30 lap Truckin thunder Sportsman feature, capped off a storied night of racing with Brett Adkins taking home a very emotional victory over Tim Shelton. Brett Adkins and Tim Shelton led the 23 car field to green with Shelton powering to the lead on the outside with Adkins following in second. While the two leaders pulled away from the field the battle for third was intense between Matt Meads, Taylor Doggett and Mark Gonzales. Much of the remaining laps the three battled three wide for the position. With the laps winding down, Adkins began reeling in the leader. On lap 24 Shelton would jump the cushion in turn 2 while Adkins darted to his inside for the lead. Adkins would hold off several challenges from Shelton to take home the win.

Rain Forces Cancellation of Racing on WhosYourDriver.org Night

Jamaica, VA – Just as qualifying had concluded on WhosYourDriver.org Night at Virginia Motor Speedway Mother Nature decided to dampen the night’s activities with rain. Speedway officials waited an hour before calling the night’s activities hoping that the rain would subside.

Matt Quade Scores Career First Pro Late Model Victory; Shelton, McClendon and Givens also Take Wins

Matt Quade Scores Career First Pro Late Model Victory; Shelton, McClendon and Givens also Take Wins

Jamaica, VA – On the night that the lights went out in Jamaica Matt Quade of Avenue, MD collected his career first Victory Lap Pro Late Model victory on Atlantic Broadband Night at Virginia Motor Speedway. After two weeks of rains that put a damper on just about all racing activities in the Mid-Atlantic the sun finally shined on a Saturday night. So, when the track experienced a complete blackout due to a power outage in the county it looked as if we would lose another event. After a 45-minute delay the lights came back on and racing was able to continue to the delight of the crowd. The blackout might have been exciting but the action in the Victory Lap Pro Late Model feature was even more exciting. Matt Quade of Avenue, MD and Bud Stinson of Appomattox, VA put on a side-by-side driving clinic, trading the lead six times before Quade would eventually take control of the 35-lap affair. Once out-front Quade would cruise to his career first Pro Late Model win and become the fifth different winner in as many races. “That was definitely the hardest win I have ever had to work for and it has been the hardest first win to come by in my career,” commented Quade in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rounding out the top five were Davis Lipscombe, Corey Almond, Dustin Ferguson and Matt Tarbox. In other action Hunter McClendon of Williamsburg, VA became the first two-time winner in the Budweiser Modified division; in the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature Tim Shelton of Fredericksburg, VA would lead every lap on way to his second win of the season and in the Collision One Limited Stock Car 25 lap feature James Givens of Sandston, VA picked up his fourth win of the season and second in a row. Camden Testerman and first-time VMS competitor Bud Stinson led the Victory Lap Pro Late Model field to green with Stinson taking the lead out of turn 2 followed by Matt Quade. Stinson and Quade would put on a show for the fans racing side by side and trading the lead back and forth six times before Quade would take control of the feature. Once out front Quade would keep a comfortable distance between himself and the battle for second on back. While Quade was set on cruise the other battles in the top five were exciting as Davis Lipscombe, Corey Almond, Dustin Ferguson, Matt Tarbox and Brent Bordeaux battled to stay in the top five. No one had anything for Quade over the last 15 laps as he drove to his career first victory in the Pro Late Model division and continued the trend of a different winner in every race this season. Davis Lipscombe, Corey Almond, Dustin Ferguson and Matt Tarbox rounded out the top five. Tim Shelton and Tyler Shipp led the Truckin Thunder field to green with Shelton jumping out to the lead out of turn 2. Shelton would pace the field with Matt Meads following close behind him in second. The only thing to slow Shelton over the remaining 25 laps were a couple of cautions that closed the field on his bumper. Meads did mount a late charge and looked inside Shelton coming out of turn 4 as they headed to the checkers but Shelton would hold on for the win. Meads, Tyler Shipp, Joe Weiss and Brett Adkins rounded out the top five. Tim Schulte and Ryan Toole led the Budweiser Modified field to green with Toole rocketing to the lead on the outside followed by Schulte, fast qualifier Francis Jarrelle and Bret Hamilton. Toole began to pull away from the field with Schulte and Hamilton battling for second. The races first caution would fly on lap 8 for a spin by Josh Harris in turn 4. On the restart Toole once again jumped out to a nice lead as Jarrelle worked his way to third. Jarrelle would retire to the infield a lap later after losing a drive shaft. Toole would pace the field until lap 24 when McClendon worked the outside of Toole in turn 2 for the lead. Once out front McClendon would go on to his second win of 2018. Rounding out the top 5 were Tim Schulte, Bret Hamilton, Josh Harris and Jeff Solinger. It only took James Givens 5 laps to take the lead in the Collision One Limited Stock feature and would go on to score his fourth win of the season. Raymond harper and Cory Bradley led the field to green with the action quickly going three-wide as Trent Clemans moved to the inside to take the lead at the line. His lead would be short lived as he would spin in turn 4 by himself on lap 4. Bradley would lead them back to green but James Givens would power around him for the lead. Givens would have to hold off a late charge by Bradley over the final laps to score the victory. Rounding out the top five were Cory Bradley, Mark Schools, Chad Champion and Shawn Otey.
