Landon Huffman Captures Win on "Smokey's Wrecker Service Night at the Races"

(July 11th 2015) - Hickory Motor Speedway would play host to Smokey's Wrecker Service Night at the Races with seven action packed features on a hot July night.

Starting off the night would be the Smokey's Super Trucks with the first race of their Twin 25 lap features. Fast timer Ashley Huffman in the #7 would lead the field to the green flag and keep the point until mechanical problems would sideline him late in the race. The #77 of Tal Davidson would eagerly take the top spot and go on to take the win, his first at Hickory Motor Speedway. Following close behind Davidson would be the Smokey's Super Trucks points leader Sheflon Clay in the #15C. A photo finish would give the 3 rd spot to the #36 of Tyler Dayton who was side by side with the 4 th place finisher #51 of Allen Huffman. Rounding out the top 5 would be the #15Z of Zach Hale.

The mighty 4-Cylinders would be the next to hit the track with their 25 lap feature. Pole sitter Michael Tucker in the #16 would take the green flag and swap the lead with the #09 of Randy Canipe until mechanical problems would park Tucker late in the race, but still allow him a 5 th place finish. Canipe would hold on for another win, continuing a hot streak as of late. Dennis Trivette in the #28, Rob Lewis in the #98, and the #6 of Rodney Trivette would make up the remainder of the top 4.

Next up would be the always exciting T-Mobile Limited Late Models in their 35 lap feature. The #21 of Monty Cox would set the fast time for the Limiteds and take the lead for several laps as positions were swapped throughout the pack. With 32 laps on the board contact between Cox and the #48 of Spencer Boyd would send Cox spinning and Boyd to the lead. Also collected in the incident was the #07 of Hayden Humphrey. Boyd would hold off the rest of the field for the final 3 laps to bring home the win. The #77 of Travis Byrd and the #34 of Pat Rachels would battle hard for 2 nd place with Byrd taking the position in the end. Rachels, Mitch Walker in the #29, and Christian Pahud in the #99 would round out the top 5.

The Street Stocks would roll off next for their 30 lap feature. The #18 of Cody DeMarmels would continue his hot streak and grab the pole. Outside pole sitter Charlie Neill in the #2 would have a huge engine failure as smoke would billow out of the #2 when the front row came down to the green flag. This would bring out the caution and cause several damaged cars as a result of the chain reaction incident. When racing would finally resume DeMarmels would hold off all challengers and take another Checkered Flag. Seasoned veteran Marshall Sutton in the #64 would take the runner-up position. Rounding out the top 5 would be Larry Mosher in the #2, Kevin Eby in the #03, and Mark Whitten in the #3.

The 75 lap NASCAR Whelen All American Series Bojangles Late Model feature would be next. The #75 of Landon Huffman would edge out Matt Piercy in the #25 for the top spot in qualifying, setting up the top 2 in points for the front row starting positions. As the green flag fell Huffman and Piercy would do battle for several laps to determine who would pace the early laps of the race. Huffman would finally nose ahead and set the early pace. The first caution would fall with a single car spin on lap 41 by the # 5 of Dexter Canipe Jr. that would bunch up the field. On the restart the top 2 in points would once again do battle for the top position. After several laps and the battle being joined by the #00 of Shane Lee, Huffman would once again take the top spot. Huffman would go on to the victory, taking win #3 for the year. Piercy would come home in 2 nd but retain the points lead. Mike Darne in the #14 would have a good run, dropping back early in the race but battling back late to finish 3 rd . Dexter Canipe Jr. in the #5 would battle back from his spin on lap 41 to finish 4 th with Lee grabbing 5 th .

The Wrench Rags Renegades would be the next to hit the track for their 20 lap feature. Kenneth Roberts in the #8 would pace the field in qualifying and lead the field to the green. Positions would be swapped throughout the field but in the end Roberts would take the win. Justin Austin in the #4 would grab his career best finish with the runner-up position. Ray Triplett in the #57, Blake Walker in the #09, and Steve Griffith in the #68 would make up the top 5.

Closing out the night would be the Smokey's Super Trucks in race #2 of their Twin 25 lap races. First race winner, Tal Davidson in the #77, would lead the field to the green flag and show that he was beginning to like being in the front. The #15 of Sheflon Clay would challenge early but have to settle for 2 nd as Davidson would hold him off for his second win of the night and his second win at the Birthplace of the NASCAR Stars. Allen Huffman in the #51 would grab 3 rd place while Dakota Ratcliff in the #09 and Tyler Dayton in the #36 would round out the top 5.
