Berry Takes Round 7 of the ZLOOP Racing Challenge for Frye Regional Breast Cancer Awareness Night Presented by Hendrick Honda Hickory

 

June 29th, 2013

By: Julie Buckner

It was a great crowd on Saturday, June 29 th for the Frye Regional Breast Cancer Awareness Night Presented by Hendrick Honda Hickory. The fans were treated to an exciting night of racing and a great fireworks display following all the races. As a breast cancer survivor for 2 years, I encourage everyone to help support breast cancer awareness.

Starting out the night was the Paramount KIA Limited Late Models with the #00 of Shane Lee starting on the pole. A good race developed early between the #75 of Landon Huffman and the #15 of Sheflon Clay. Back in the field the #25 of Allen Huffman and the #21 of Monty Cox were racing hard for position. Caution would come out on lap twenty-seven for the contact between the cars of the #72 Jason Cochran and the #07 of Josh Bralley, also getting involved are the cars of Clay, the #6 of Brandon Hudnall and the #95 of Nicholas Wilt and Lee. On the restart the #18 of Casey Pierce would be the new leader when Lee came to pit road. Pierce would remain in the lead while L. Huffman and the #51 of Jeremy Pelfrey battle for second. At the checkered flag it would be Pierce, L. Huffman, Pelfrey, the #15 of Justin Bolton and A. Huffman rounding out the top five.

Next up were the Street Stocks with the #16 of Jonathan Smith bringing them to the green flag with his father the #99 of Roy Smith starting second. J. Smith would take the early lead, while R. Smith, the #64 of Marshall Sutton and the #03 of Kevin Eby would battle side by side behind him for several laps. The race would be caution free and J. Smith would take the win, followed by R. Smith, Sutton, Eby and the #52 of Don Machutta.

The #98 of Chase Pollard earned his first pole in the K & P Construction 4-Cylinders with the #99 of Matt Elledge starting second. Pollard and Elledge battled for several laps, However it would be Pollard taking his first win of the season with Elledge second, the #51 of Nathaniel Kanupp third, the #3 of Donnie Harmon fourth and the #21 of Eddie Gilbert fifth.

The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Bojangles Late Models ZLOOP Racing Challenge Race #7 would begin with Jesse LeFevers in the #22 starting on the point in a borrowed car from fellow racer Dan Moore and the #5 of Christian Calvo would start second. There was hard racing early throughout the track and between the #55 of Zach Bruenger, the #13 of Ryan Shattuck and the #12 of Annabeth Barnes. Meanwhile up front Calvo would take the early lead from LeFevers and the #88 of Josh Berry would close on LeFevers. At the halfway point it would be Calvo, Berry and the #5 of Brandon Dean. On lap seventy-four, Berry would take the lead from Calvo, However on lap ninety-three there would be contact between the #57 of Grant Wimbish and the #12 of Austin McDaniel causing McDaniel to spin coming out of turn four. The caution would wave for the spin and with the rain coming down harder the red flag would wave as the cars come to a stop on pit road. After a very short rain delay, the track is dried and the last seven laps were completed. On lap ninety-three the caution waves after the #25 of Matt Piercy made contact with the back stretch wall, while the #57 of Justin Carroll, Bruenger and the #4 of Jack Madrid would bottle up behind. In the end it would be Berry, Dean, Calvo, the #77 of CJ Hulsey and LeFevers rounding out the top five.

The #8 of Kenneth Roberts started on the pole for the WrenchRags Renegades race. Before the green flag would wave the #68 of Steve Griffith would lose power in turn three. The #16 of Carroll McKinney would push Griffith to pit road. This race was cut to 9 laps because of heavy rain. Roberts would lead flag to flag taking the win, with the #4 of Greg Austin second, the #77 of Shawn Hayes third, the #6 of Darren Dickinson fourth and the #71 of Kyle DiVanna fifth.

After the event the fans were treated to some great fireworks to wind up the night.
