Berry Continues Hot Streak

(Newton, NC - - July 15, 2014) Josh Berry returned to Victory Lane Saturday night after leading all 50 laps of the feature event for the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Bojangles' Late Model division. Mark Johnson (No. 13 - Gold King Limited Late Model), Marshall Sutton (No. 64 - Street Stock), Spencer Boyd (No. 09 - Super Trucks) and Chase Pollard (No. 98 - 4-Cyliders) also earned the opportunity to celebrate in Victory Lane as the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series returned to Hickory Motor Speedway.

The No. 88 of Josh Berry set fast time and led the 18-car field to the green flag for the 50-lap NASCAR Whelen All American Series Bojangles' Late Models feature event. Berry set the pace during the early laps, while multiple cars would battle for position. On the final lap, the No. 25 of Matt Piercy and the No. 7 of Ashley Huffman were in a dead heat to the wire with Piercy edging Huffman for the fourth-place finish, Huffman would round out the top five. Berry picked up the trophy, while the No. 9 of William Byron and the No. 5 of Bret Holms finished second and third, respectively.

Mark Johnson (No. 13) earned the pole position for the Gold King Limited Late Model event, but surrendered the top position early to the No. 12 of Even Duggins on lap five. A caution on lap 13 provided Johnson the opportunity to close the gap and regain the lead as green-flag racing resumed. Johnson went on to pick up the win, bringing along the No. 1 of Trent Barnes, No. 7 of Taylor Stricklin, Duggins and the No. 77 of Travis Byrd to complete the top five.

The No. 64 of Marshall Sutton started from the pole position before going on to lead all 30 laps of the Street Stock race after surviving an intense battle with the No. 03 of Kevin Eby. Eby settled for a second-place finish, the No. 2 of Larry Mosher finished third, the No. 3 of Chase Pollard was fourth and the No. 16 of Carroll McKinney rounded out the top five.

The No. 09 of Spencer Boyd took the green flag from the pole position for the 35-lap Super Truck race and maintained his lead over the field throughout the course of the event. Boyd went on to pick up the win leaving the No. 15 of Sheflon Clay, No. 9 of Lee Queen, No. 13 of Dakota Slagle and No. 15 of Landon Huffman to finish second through fifth, respectively. 

The No. 98 of Chase Pollard brought the field to green for the 25-lap event. As soon as the green flag waved, Pollard began to pull away from the competition leaving the competition to battle for the second position. Pollard went on to lead all 25 laps of the caution free event. The No. 00 of Eddie Gilbert, No. 28 of Dennis Trivette, No. 6 of Rodney Trivette and No. 17 of Curtis Pardue went on to round out the top five.
