Berry Wins Paramount Kia "Big 10" Racing Challenge Round 5
On Memorial Day Celebration
(Newton, NC - May 23, 2015) - Woodforest Bank Night at the Races, presented by Sam'sClub was greeted with a beautiful May afternoon and evening at Hickory Motor Speedway. Fans would be treated to an action packed day that would see racing legend Harry Gant sign autographs and greet fans, conclude with a concert and fireworks but also include three first time winners out of the five events that were run.
Leading off the night would be the 4-Cylinders and their 25 lap feature. Fast-timer Randy Canipe in the #09 would set the pace early and ultimately hold off the #00 of Eddie Gilbert for the win. Michael Tucker in the #16, Matt Elledge in the #79, and the #28 of Dennis Trivette would round out the top 5.
The always exciting T-Mobile Limited Late Models would hit the track next. Pat Rachels in the #34 would set the lap to beat in qualifying and lead the field to the green flag. Mitch Walker in the #29 would challenge Rachels early but would ultimately give way to the #77 of Travis Byrd who would work his way to 2nd place. Rachels would take the Checkered Flag in his first win at Hickory Motor Speedway while Byrd would bring home the 2nd position. Evan Duggins in the #12, Walker, and the #21 of Monty Cox would set the top 5.
