Checkered Flag flies for Huffman at Hickory Motor Speedway

June 8th, 2015
The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series hit the track again at Hickory Motor Speedway Saturday night for their weekly battle. Starting off the night would be the Wrench Rags Renegades for their exciting feature. Blake Walker in the #09 would lead the field to the green after setting the hot lap in qualifying. Kenneth Roberts in the #8 would grab the lead for a few laps but would eventually be overtaken by Walker, who would hold on for the victory in the action packed contest. The #6 of Darren Dickinson, #4 of Justin Austin and #57 of Ray Triplett would round out the top 5.

The next feature to roll off would be the 4-Cylinders with fast timer Randy Canipe in the #09 leading the field and the #00 of Eddie Gilbert to his outside. Canipe and Gilbert would set the pace and pull away to settle the battle amongst themselves. In the end Canipe would once again find himself in a familiar place as he would hold off 2nd place finisher, Gilbert, to visit Victory Lane. Michael Tucker in the #16, Rodney Trivette in the #6, and Curtis Pardue in the #17 would make up the top 5

The Street Stocks would thunder on to the track next with their feature. Kevin Townsend in the #10 would set fast time and lead the field to the start with the #18 of Cody DeMarmels lining up 2nd. At the drop of the green flag there would be a multi-car battle for the lead as the #03 of Kevin Eby and #3 of Mark Whitten would put pressure on the front two cars. An incident on the front stretch would involve several cars, including defending champion Eby who would be out of contention for the night, with several others receiving damage as well. Townsend would drive on to the win holding off a hard charging DeMarmels, as he would make a last lap attempt coming off of turn 4. DeMarmels would continue his hot streak with the runner-up position while the #52 of Don Machutta would celebrate his first visit to the front stretch celebrations with a hard fought 3rd place finish. Larry Mosher in the #2 and Witten would fight back for 4th and 5th with cars that were involved and damaged in the early race incident.

The Bojangles Late Models would roll off next with the #75 of Landon Huffman pacing the field as he would set the fast time in qualifying and last week's winner, Dexter Canipe Jr. in the #5, would line up to his outside. Annabeth Barnes in the #12 would start 3rd as Shane Lee in the #00 would line up beside her in 4th. L. Huffman would battle with Canipe for several laps before finally using the preferred line to pull ahead. Battles would continue through the field with Barnes dropping back a few positions early but battling back and working her way towards the front and ultimately finishing 5th. Matt Piercy in the #25 would get a hard fought 4th place finish as he continues to lead in the tight HMS points battle with Lee, L. Huffman and Dexter Canipe Jr.. Lee would end up grabbing 3rd as the laps ran out. Canipe, who would come home 2nd, would've liked to have seen a caution late in the race to get another shot at L. Huffman, but did not get the break he was looking for. L. Huffman would bring home the checkers at the Birthplace of the NASCAR Stars, grabbing the lead on lap 1 and never looking back for the win.

Finishing out the night would be the ultra-competitive T-Mobile Limited Late Models. Jeremy Pelfrey in the #51 would set the lap to beat for the 2nd week in a row and would lead the field to the green flag with the #77 of Travis Byrd to his outside. Pelfrey and Byrd would have a good side by side battle for several laps before Byrd would nose ahead to take the lead. While Byrd and Pelfrey settled into their battle for 1st, the #13 of Mark Johnson was working his way from outside row 3 on the start to pressuring Pelfrey for 2nd. Byrd would hold off the field and grab another victory. Pelfrey would hold off the hard charging Johnson as the pair would finish 2nd and 3rd. Monty Cox in the #21 and Mitch Walker in the #29 would round out the top 5.

This week is Bojangles Church night presented by 321 Lawnmower and will see the return of the Paramount Kia "Big 10" Challenge with Round #6, as the Bojangles Late Models do battle for 100 laps. The T-Mobile Limited Late Models race for 35 laps, Smokey's Super Trucks 35 laps, Street Stocks 30 laps, and the Sportsman Racing classics 25 laps.
