Canipe takes another Hickory Motor Speedway Checkered

 

(August 29th 2015) - After a week off the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series thundered back to life at the Birthplace of the NASCAR Stars Saturday night with five action packed features.

Leading off the night would be the Wrench Rags Renegades in their 20 lap feature. Darren Dickinson in the #6 would pave the way for the field after setting the hot lap in qualifying. Challenges would come from the #8 of Kenneth Roberts, the #4 of Justin Austin, the #71 of Kyle DiVanna, and the #09 of Blake Walker, but Dickinson would prove too tough as he would take the win. Roberts would grab the runner up spot, Austin would finish 3rd, Walker 4th, and DiVanna would round out the top 5.

Next up would be the 4-Cylinders and their 25 lap feature. Randy Canipe in the #09 would set the fast time but mechanical problems would sideline him before he could answer the opening bell for the feature. Eddie Gilbert would return in the #00 and inherit the top starting position. Gilbert would take the early lead with Michael Tucker in the #16 working his way to battle for the lead. Gilbert would hold on to take the win with Tucker finishing 2nd. Dennis Trivette in the #28 would bring home another podium finish with 3rd, Rodney Trivette in the #6 would grab 4th, and Candice Tucker in the #31 would grab her season best finish with 5th.

The Street Stocks would be the next to roar to life with their 30 lap feature. Bill Lett in the #07 would lead the field to the green flag after turning his hot lap in qualifying. Lett would lead early but mechanical problems would sideline him later in the race. Brendan Doyle in the #23, Mark Whitten in the #3, and Larry Mosher in the #2 would all take turns leading the race until Mosher would flex his muscles and return to Victory Lane for his 2nd win in two races. Whitten would come home 2nd, Kevin Eby in the #03 would grab 3rd, Marshall Sutton in the #64 would get 4th, and Clint Campbell in the #17 would have a strong run and round out the top 5.

The Bojangles Late Models hit the track next with their 75 lap feature. Landon Huffman in the #75 would start from the pole position as fast qualifier with Dexter Canipe in the #5 to his outside and the #00 of Shane Lee and the #12 Annabeth Barnes starting from the 2nd row. Huffman and Canipe would battle side by side for the point as the green flag flew with Canipe squeezing by after several laps. The #25 of Matt Piercy would start 5th but begin to work his way towards the front as the laps rolled off. Huffman's car would sound a miss as the race continued on. When Piercy caught Huffman the two would race side by side for several laps until Piercy cleared him coming off of turn 4, but contact in the next turn would send the points leaders up the track with Piercy spinning and eventually nose to nose with Huffman's car when they came to a stop. Both drivers would be able to continue on but Huffman would be summoned to the pits to serve a penalty that would see him sidelined for the remainder of the event. As the race would go back to green Canipe would once again move to the lead but with Lee close in tow. As the Checkered Flag would fall Canipe would grab another win on the year with Lee coming home in 2nd. Piercy would battle back to grab the 3rd finishing position, Will Burns in the #82 would take 4th, and Baron Kuritzky in the #17 would get his first top 5 in only his 4th Late Model start.

Finishing out the night would be the T-Mobile Limited Late Models. Monty Cox in the #21 would set fast time and pace the field to the green flag with the #77 of Travis Byrd to his outside. Byrd would grab the top spot after a couple of laps and battles raging all around. Cox would visit pit road with mechanical problems which would end his night. Hayden Humphrey in the #07, Zack Bruenger in the #55, Brandon Baker in the #87, Mitch Walker in the #29, and Ryan Vasconcellos in the #10 would all take turns battling Byrd for the lead in the hotly contested feature, but Byrd would once again prevail to take the Checkered Flag. Vasconcellos would cap off a great run with a 2nd place finish. Baker would make the most of his visit to come home 3rd, after spinning early Bruenger would battle back for 4th, and Humphrey would round out the top 5 after leading earlier in the race.
