Captures Round Two in Thursday Night Thunder Series at Bristol
CLICK ON IMAGE FOR
April 17th, 2014 == Chris Ginn
took his first All Pro win Thursday night in one of the most
controversial races of the year, surviving a post-race protest
over a league rule pertaining to using the outside wall.
Ginn, who took the lead on a restart on lap 81 of the 150-lap
event had been witnessed banking off the wall in the apex of
turns one and two on a couple of occasions, drawing a protest
after the race. Ginn began to stretch his lead over second
and third place Adam Benefiel and Cody Gibson, prompting the
protest after the race. Officials looked at the replay of
the 2nd half of the race for more than 30 minutes before
clearing Ginn of maliciously exploiting the wall to gain a
performance advantage, citing that there didn't appear to be a
deliberate exploitation, and that he didn't hit the wall while
being directly challenged for for position. Typical for
racing at Bristol, the race saw lots of beating and banging, and
some elevated tempers. But for the most part it was a
great race. Officials will be revisiting the rule related
to exploiting the outside wall, and making a decision on how to
deal with the anomoly. Finishing behind Ginn was Cody
Gibson, Adam Benefiel, Garrett Konrath, and Brian Mellendorf,
the top five finishers.
Takes New Team to Victory Lane at "The Rock"
CLICK ON IMAGE FOR
April 15th, 2014 == Just days
after moving from the Steel Horse Racing team stable to his new
team, Scott Formosa and Team Formosa accomplished something that
very few other drivers have been able to do... win against Josh
Formosa took the lead from Preston
Bores on lap nine, but Josh Berry, as expected came to the front
and took the lead not too long afterwards. Troubles on pit
road would force Berry to give up the lead to Formosa later,
then Formosa had to hold his breath as Berry once again mounted
a challenge on him just past halfway in the race. Berry
had the hammer cocked right on Formosa's rear bumper, even
drawing alongside a couple of times but Formosa held off the
challenges as Preston Bores watched the battle from 3rd, just a
few truck lengths back. Bores would fall out of the third
position after he got loose exiting turn four, allowing Chamblee
to take that spot over. But the caution flag would fly
again with just fifteen laps to go after a collision between
Jeff Belt and Austin Carter. The leaders came down pit
road in tight formation for the final pit stop of the night.
The Formosa team made the decision
to gamble and take only right-side tires, while Berry and
Chamblee took four tires to settle things for the final ten-lap
shootout. On the restart Formosa got a great jump,
bringing Chamblee to the inside of Berry for a lap of
side-by-side racing. Berry eventually took the #2 spot,
and quickly closed in on Formosa. Surprisingly, Formosa
held tough on his two fresh tires, with Berry struggling to get
to the outside of him. With just four laps to go Berry
slapped the outside wall exiting turn two, seemingly damaging
the alignment of his front-end and making the #88 truck very
loose. Chamblee was able to drive under Berry to take over
the second spot, then closed in on Formosa for the final two
laps. Chamblee's four fresh tires were of little help
either, as Berry was able to close back in on him to battle for
the #2 spot, allowing Formosa to stretch his advantage and take
the win. Chamblee came home 2nd, followed by Berry, Bores
and Cody Gibson, the top five finishers.
After the race, Formosa had these
"The decision to leave SHR turned
out to be the right move, man, I tell you. Team Formosa
really put a good truck under me tonight to be able to beat
Josh. I just can't seem to find the words right now to say
how excited and pumped-up we are going into the rest of the
season with this new ride. Boy are we looking forward to
Dover next week! Just really happy to be back in victory lane,
especially after the bad night we had last night at New Smyrna."
Dominates Jake Cross Memorial 150 at New Smyrna

April 14th, 2014 == Josh Berry was
virtually untouchable Monday night, winning the All Pro Jacob
Cross Memorial 150 at New Smyrna Speedway. Berry gave up
only two laps of the lead, allowing Preston Bores to lead those
laps. The big story of the night was incidents.
Eleven caution periods kept the race bogged down early, with the
biggest one on lap 46 that involved eleven cars, completely
blocking the front stretch. Things finally calmed down and
the race stayed green for awhile, but by then only three cars
remained on the lead lap. Adam Benefiel, the 4th place car
was two laps down when the yellow flag flew with just 13 laps
remaining, moving him to just one lap down. With just 4
laps remaining the 3rd place car of Chuck Chamblee spun,
bringing out the night's final caution. This moved
Benefiel back onto the lead lap and, due to the incident credit
moved Chamblee to the end of the lead lap, giving Benefiel the
3rd position in the final results. But the night belonged
to Berry, who led lap 83 to get the $10.00 lap bonus, as well as
the $25.00 prize and trophy for the win. Preston Bores
finished 2nd, followed by Benefiel, Chamblee and Brandon
Osborne, the top five finishers.
Returns to All-Pro with Pro-Cup Win at Texas
CLICK ON IMAGE FOR
April 13th, 2014 == After All-Pro
re-opened competition to the iRacing Pro class drivers, Josh
Berry jumped on the opportunity to come back home and put
himself back in Victory Lane. Berry was the class of the
field, leading almost every lap at Texas Sunday night in race #
2 of the Q2 Pro-Cup Series season. The battle for 2nd
would be between Brian Mellendorf and Adam Benefiel, found
themselves over five seconds behind Berry. The driver that
spent the most time watching Berry's rear bumper, Scott Formosa,
had to conserve fuel late in the race, falling off the pace in
the final laps with an empty fuel tank. The battle for 4th
would be between Chuck Chamblee, Adam Blattel and Danny Sanchez,
with Chamblee just barely hanging on to the spot after he ran
out of gas in turn three on the final lap. Blattel came
home 5th after a missed opportunity to pass Chamblee and a
scrape with the wall in turn four.
Kilcrease Gets First All Pro Win in LMS at South Boston Speedway
CLICK ON IMAGE FOR
April 7th, 2014 == Ben "The King"
Kilcrease put a good ole' fashioned whoop'n on Preston Bores
Monday night, passing him the hard way on the outside to take
the lead and went on to take the win. Bores dominated the
first two-thirds of the 150-lapper, no surprises there.
The action a little further back for the 3rd through 5th spots
was furious, however. Those spots were heavily contested,
with several of the early occupants not surviving the race.
Chuck Chamblee and Matt Vaade were the first two to have
problems in the top five, then Adam Benefiel spun while racing
teammate Dan Murray. Scotty Formosa also dropped out of
competition due to an incident, after running in the top three
early. Bores and Kilcrease were rock-solid all night,
though, setting the stage for a 50-lap shootout for the win.
On lap 115 after a restart, Kilcrease was able to get to the
outside of Bores for the first time and make a run. After
three laps side-by-side, Kilcrease finally cleared Bores to
claim the lead. Bores stayed with Kilcrease, but could not
challenge him in the closing laps. Kilcrease took the
checkered flag, followed by Bores, Murray, Benefiel, and Vaade,
the top five finishers.

Street Stock Q1 Finale, Chamblee Wins Championship
March 27th, 2014 == Scott Formosa
picked up his first Q1 Street Stock Series win Thursday night,
winning the 75-lapper at Rockingham Speedway. Formosa took
the lead from pole-sitter Louie Robinett on lap two, but the
caution flag would fly after Chuck Chamblee spun while trying to
work his way from the rear to the front on lap 12. Kevin
Berry held the lead on the restart, but Formosa moved alongside
quickly to challenge. The two raced side-by-side for a
number of laps before Formosa finally reclaimed the spot.
Meanwhile, the car on the move was Chamblee. The #25 car
worked his way to 2nd, then ran down Formosa to begin a great
battle for the lead. Chamblee finally got under Formosa on
the front stretch, then after a couple of laps side-by-side got
the lead and pulled away. But with just ten laps to go
Chamblee brushed the outside wall exiting turn two, knocking his
toe-in out,, which allowed Formosa to drive back by to retake
the lead. Formosa went on to take the win, followed by
Chamblee, John Martin, Kevin Berry and David Gibson, the top
five finishers. Chamblee took the series title by 37
points over Cody Gibson.
Wins Legends Series Finale at Thompson Speedway
March 25th, 2014 == For back to
back nights, it was a test of survival at the Thompson Speedway
in the All Pro Legend Series. Literally every single driver spun
or found the wall during the race. First is was Jason Swann on
lap 7 literally flipping over the #132 of Nick Atchison, then it
was Adam Blattel's turn to get damage when he and Adam Benefiel
made contact making his car undriveable. Following Blattel's
problems, Cody Gibson was chasing Benefiel down he over drove
turn one and had a self-spin. Literally the lap later leading,
Adam Benefiel had a self spin yet he managed not to get major
damage. That gave the lead to Nick Atchison but Adam Benefiel
made quick work of Atchison and set sail taking the victory at
Thompson Speedway. Adam Blattel was able to hold on and take his
first championship at the All Pro Sim Racing Series and in
Iracing, finishing 17 points ahead of Nick Atchison. "Thanks to
all the drivers that supported the Happy Hour Series. We
struggled with car counts down the stretch so look for major
changes going forward into Quarter 2.
