August 3rd, 2013
By: Julie Buckner

 

Sams Club Night at the Races would be the host for Hickory Motor Speedway on Saturday Night. With all of the recent rain fans would have an opportunity to enjoy a rain free night of racing with six divisions of action. Hickory Motor Speedway would also like to continue to remember all of those affected by the recent flooding in our area.

The K & P Construction 4 Cylinders would begin the night with the #4 of Adam Beaver starting on the pole and the #98 of Chase Pollard starting second. The #99 of Matt Elledge would get loose in turn two causing the # 21 of Eddie Gilbert and the #17 of Curtis Pardue to spin. Pardue would be done for the evening. On the restart the #16 of Randy Freeze would come to a stop in turn three bringing out the second caution of the night. When the green came out again Beaver would continue to lead, followed by Pollard. Beaver would go on to take the checkered flag, with Pollard second, the #03 of Donnie Harmon third, Elledge fourth and the #51 of Nathaniel Kanupp fifth..

The second event of the night would be the Paramount KIA Limited Late Models with the #51 of Jeremy Pelfrey leading the 19-car field to the green flag for 35 laps of hard racing. As the green flag would wave a good battle between Pelfrey and the #75 of Landon Huffman would determine who would take the early lead, while three wide action between the #07 of Josh Bralley, the #15 of Sheflon Clay and the #09 of Kyle Mansch would take place behind them. On lap five the #28 of Chris Hudspeth and the #43 of Kenneth Pardue would spin in turn four to bring out the first caution. Once racing resumes L. Huffman would take the lead from Pelfrey. On lap twenty-five the #25 of Allen Huffman would spin after contact with the #17 of Mitch Walker. Lap twenty six would bring out the next caution with a multi car pileup, sending the car of Clay and the #09 of Charlie Watson to the pits for the night. Coming to the checkered flag it is L. Huffman, Pelfrey, the #00 of Shane Lee, the #18 of Casey Pierce and the #21 of Monty Cox.

The WrenchRags Renegades drivers would race with heavy hearts tonight as they remember one of their very own the #14 of Eddie Russ who passed away on Saturday, July 20 th , 2013. The race would start with the #8 of Kenneth Roberts claiming the pole. Action began early on lap six when the #22 of Daniel Moore spinning in turn two. Problems would arise again on lap eight when the #77 of Shawn Hayes would spin coming out of turn four grazing the outer pit road wall. On the restart Roberts continued to lead and would take the win over his car owner finishing second the #6 of Darren Dickinson, the #4 of Greg Austin, the #16 of Carroll McKinney and the #71 of Robert DiVanna.

Next up is the Gold King Super Trucks for 35-laps of action. Starting on the pole would be the rookie driver #88 of Doug Barnes with points leader #33 of Jeremy Birch starting second. Birch would take the top spot and never look back taking the win, followed by Barnes, the #09 of Spencer Boyd, the #29 of Jason Smith and the #13 of Dakota Slagle.

The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Bojangles Late Model points leader of the #12 of Austin McDaniel would be on the pole by 2 ten thousandths of a second followed by the #00 of Shane Lee. McDaniel would take the early lead while Lee and the #5 of Christian Calvo battle for position behind him. On lap fifteen, the #25 of Matt Piercys engine would expire in turn two bringing out the caution and retiring the #25 car to the pits for the night. When the green flag would wave McDaniel would move back to the front with Lee in second, as the #43 of Jesse LeFevers and Calvo battle side by side for position, with Calvo eventually taking third from LeFevers. McDaniel would go on to take the win, followed by Lee, Calvo, LeFevers and the #97 of Keith Bumgarner rounding out the top five.

he Street Stock division would be the last event for the night with the #10 of Kevin Townsend grabbing the top spot and the #16 of Jonathon Smith starting second. Smith would encounter problems that would move the #64 of Marshall Sutton to the second starting position. Townsend would take the early lead from Sutton while side by side battles would be just behind. Townsend would lead the 11 car field to the checkered flag. Sutton would finish second, the #03 of Kevin Eby third, the #33 of Mark Whitten fourth and the #2 of Larry Mosher fifth. In victory lane, Townsend dedicated the win to the family of Eddie Russ.
