SK Modified Event at Thompson in Fifty-Fifty Series
Thursday, May 28th, 2015 ==
Preston Bores led all but two laps in route to the win Thursday
night in the All Pro Fifty-Fifty Series' SK Modified 100-lapper.
Bores started from the pole and jumped out to a big lead over
2nd place Justin Blackdeer by just 25 laps into the event.
Blackdeer came under fire on lap 26 from Chuck Chamblee, with
Chamblee eventually taking the spot. A caution period
brought everyone down pit road, and Bores would lead the restart
over Blackdeer and Chamblee. Bores checked out again,
leaving the battle for 2nd place between Blackdeer and Chamblee.
Chamblee once again was able to get by Blackdeer for 2nd, but
Bores was untouchable in route to the win. Finishing 2nd
was Chamblee, followed by Devon Morgan, Justin Blackdeer and
Jackie Palmore, the top five finishers.
Tuesday, May 26th -- No big
surprises Tuesday night, as Josh Berry rolled to another
dominating win in All Pro competition. Berry started in
the rear and took the lead on lap 32, then never looked back in
route to the win. Matthew Tucker picked up his second All
Pro pole position in qualifying, and led the field to the green
flag alongside Chuck Chamblee. Chamblee took the lead into
turn one and pulled out to a comfortable advantage, as Tucker
and Bob Gillenwater battled for 2nd. Shawn Musick joined
in on that battle eventually, and in the latter stages of the
race worked his way past Gillenwater and Tucker. Tucker
suffered yet another frustrating night with connection issues,
dropping him out of the 3rd position. Meanwhile, Berry was
having no trouble dicing his way through the pack to get to the
leader. It took Berry only two laps to get by Chamblee for
the lead, and afterwards it was game-over. The top five
finishers were Josh Berry, Chuck Chamblee, Shawn Musick, Bob
Gillenwater and Robert Didomenico.
The biggest story of the night was
the clear domination of the new NASCAR truck models over the
2013-vintage trucks. This has been an ongoing controversy for
several weeks, forcing drivers to do pre-race testing in order
to decide which truck to bring to a particular race track.
Last week at Charlotte, the 2013 model truck was dominant, as it
was at Atlanta earlier in the quarter. On the super
speedways, however, the 2015 trucks were dominant. The
controversy will likely continue until All Pro makes a decision
on whether or not to keep the 2013 truck on the schedule for Q3.

Monday, May 25th, 2015 == Josh
Berry was all by himself up front in Monday night's All Pro
Super Late Model Series event at Thompson Speedway, leading 99
of the 100 laps run. Preston Bores was the only other
driver in the field able to keep pace with Berry, but even he
didn't have enough to challenge. Chuck Chamblee came back
from being a lap down early in the race to run in the 2nd
position inside the final 20 laps, but Bores quickly came
through the field after his late pit stop to reclaim 2nd with
just 8 laps to go. With two laps to go Scott Formosa was
able to get under Chamblee for the 3rd spot, bringing Robert
Gillenwater along and dropping Chamblee to 5th on the final lap.
The top five finishers were Berry, Bores, Formosa, Gillenwater

May 24th, 2015 == Returning to All
Pro competition, Cody Gibson made his presence noticed by
jumping out to the early lead from the outside front row ahead
of pole-sitter Robert Gillenwater. Gibson looked like he
would be running away with the race, at times stretching his
lead out to several seconds while Gillenwater and Scott Formosa
battled for 2nd. Last week's winner Adam Blattel joined
the battle, but a caution on lap 57 would slow the pace and
bring everyone in for fuel and tires. Blattel led the
restart on lap 60, with Gibson getting pinned up on the high
side as several more drivers tried to take advantage.
Gillenwater moved under Gibson to try to take over 2nd, but
Gibson got loose and spun, collecting Gillenwater on his
right-rear corner. Formosa couldn't avoid Gibson and
punted him the rest of the way around, bringing out the caution
again. Formosa lost a lap on pit road, and Gillenwater
spent a good deal of time getting repairs, while Gibson was done
for the night. Blattel continued to lead, but Skip Witt
was on the move with just ten laps to go. Witt caught
Blattel with just four laps remaining, as Chuck Chamblee and
Jason Swann rode just behind the duo. Witt got a nose
under Blattel with two laps to go, bringing Chamblee right to
their bumpers. Going into turn three coming to the
white flag Blattel tried to side draft off of Witt, but the two
made contact, opening the door on the bottom for Chamblee to
drive to the inside and pull ahead exiting turn four. Witt
bounced off the wall coming to the white flag and spun across
the noses of Blattel and Swann, who were side by side, bringing
out the caution flag and ending the race. Chamblee would
take the white and yellow flags to take the win, with Blattel
coming home 2nd. Finishing 3rd was Robert Gillenwater,
followed by Skip Witt and Scott Formosa, the top five unofficial
finishers. In a post-race review, however, Chamblee and
Blattel were both penalized for passing the pace car as the
yellow flag was coming out, moving Robert Gillenwater to P1
officially. Chamblee and Blattel were each given EOLs, dropping
them to 2nd and 3rd, respectively. Skip Witt and Scott
Formosa remained the official 4th and 5th place finishers.
The league's current rule
regarding black flags will be reviewed at the end of the
quarter. This incident marks the second time that an All Pro
race winner has been stripped of his win due to an iRacing AI

Chuck Chamblee Wins
Inaugural All Pro King
of the Ring 300 Big Show
-- Chuck Chamblee took all of the honors in the inaugural All Pro King
of the Ring 300, starting last week with winning the pole position, then
leading the most laps and taking the checkered flag Thursday night in
the 300-lapper at South Boston Speedway. Chamblee led the field of
sixteen starters to the green flag, pursued closely by Rex Hoyle.
Chamblee held the lead through lap 125, with Hoyle right on his bumper,
then the duo came to pit road under caution. Dan Murray, who
pitted earlier in the race assumed the lead and led for 37 laps before
Chamblee retook the lead with a pass to the inside. Hoyle once
again became the pursuer, running just a car length back from Chamblee.
But just a few laps after a restart Hoyle and Scott Formosa made contact
while racing for 2nd, bringing out another caution. Hoyle climbed
back to the 2nd spot with an impressive performance, and once again set
his sights on the lead. Another caution period inside the final
sixty laps would bring Chamblee and Hoyle to pit road again, giving Matt
Vaade the lead. Vaade lead the next 17 laps before pitting, giving
Chamblee the lead again. The ensuing final 50 laps would be some
of the toughest laps up front, with Hoyle turning up the heat on
Chamblee for the lead, and Vaade right behind that battle. The
final caution on lap 296 occurred after Murray made contact with Hoyle,
and would end the race with Chamblee finishing just ahead of Matt Vaade,
Adam Blattel, Rex Hoyle and Colby Franklin, the top five finishers.
Todd Garren Dominates 5th Annual All Pro
Wednesday, December 17th -
Todd Garren dominated the 5th Annual All Pro
Snowball Derby Wednesday night, leading more than
250 laps of the 300-lap Big Show event in route to
winning his first All-Pro crown jewel event. Preston
Bores was the only other driver that seemed to be
even close to being able to challenge Garren.
Twenty-two cars started the event, which took just
shy of two hours to complete. Garrett Konrath raced
his way to 2nd in the final laps, followed by Jeff
Rogers, Chuck Chamblee and Glenn Stanley, the top
Faulkner Wins Speedway Sprint Championship in Abbreviated Series
Scott Formosa and Devon Morgan

Thursday night with respective wins at Daytona and Talladega,
but it would be Jeff Faulkner taking the championship by a huge
Thursday, September 25th - Garrett
Konrath rose to the occasion Wednesday night, winning the All
Pro Q3 Big Show, Winchester 300 at Lucas Oil Raceway.
Konrath missed the call to grid and had to start at the tail end
of the field, but quickly worked his way to the lead pack and
stayed in the thick of battle all night. Pole-sitter Chuck
Chamblee, who led a race-high 91 laps was battling with Casey
Clark for the lead when the two got together in turn one,
turning Chamblee on his side and rail-riding the outside wall
through turns one and two. Chamblee had significant damage
and lost ten laps on pit road getting repairs, while Clark would
be done for the night. Early leader Scott Formosa spun
while leading, and retired from the event on lap 72. Adam
Blattel, who also led a total of 37 laps spun on lap 240, ending
his night. In the final segment, it would be Rex Hoyle
leading Konrath up until 9 laps to go, but Konrath worked his
way to the inside of Hoyle and took the lead in impressive
style, and led the rest of the way to take the win.
Finishing behind Konrath and Hoyle was Jeff Faulkner, Chuck
Chamblee and Bill Driscoll, the top five finishers.
