Race Report
Saturday, October 6, 2012

HAMPTON, Va. (Oct. 6) Ricky Derrick put the finishing touch on his fourth straight division championship, scoring his seventh victory of the season in the 4CDL/Thomas Nelson Community College 40 for the Pepsi Grand Stocks, the featured event of Saturday evening's NASCAR Whelen All-American Series program at Langley Speedway.
Derrick was fastest in afternoon time trials, at 77.939 mph, and claimed the pole position. Carl Livingston lined up to the outside of Derrick, while Tommy Sweeney and Robbie Parker made up Row 2. Rodney Boyd rounded out the top five in the 14-car starting lineup.
As the race got under way, Derrick jumped out front, pulling ahead of Livingston as the field roared into Turn 1. Sweeney tagged along with Derrick and took over the runner-up spot, while Livingston dropped to third.
The first caution flag waved on lap 2 when Boyd and Parker locked horns off Turn 4 and Boyd spun. After a visit to the pits to replace a flat right-rear tire, Boyd rejoined the field for the restart.
Back under green, Derrick motored ahead of Parker, who had restarted in the outside lane. As Derrick pulled away, Sweeney rushed to the inside of Parker. He cleared Parker in Turns 3 and 4, but Parker executed a crossover move and nosed into second at the end of lap 3. He gained the clear-cut edge on lap 4 and set off after Derrick, who had opened a four-length lead.
By lap 11, Parker had closed to within a car-length of Derrick's rear bumper. He took a look to the inside of the leader in Turn 2 on lap 13, but came up empty and settled back in line.
The second caution flag flew on lap 16 when Jamie Sample ground to a halt in Turn 4 with a flat left-rear tire.
As the field bunched for a restart, third-place Sweeney broke out of line and pulled to the outside of Derrick. He was joined up top by Boyd, Paul Lubno and Joe Britt.
Back under way, Derrick quickly dispensed with Sweeney, leaving him to battle Parker for second. Parker won that battle at the end of lap 16 and set his sights on Derrick, who was three lengths ahead. Deeper in the field, five-time race winner Mark Claar was beginning to rumble, slipping past Livingston for fourth at the halfway mark.
As the crossed flags were displayed, Parker pulled to within a car-length of Derrick. On lap 21, he muscled his way underneath the leader in Turn 4 and the race for the top spot was on.
Derrick and Parker went door-to-door until lap 23 when Parker was finally able to use the inside groove to his advantage. Sweeney followed Parker's cue and swiped second from Derrick on lap 24. A lap later, though, Derrick returned the favor and regained the runner-up spot. Claar picked up another position on lap 26, scooting by Sweeney for third.
The third caution flag appeared on lap 28 when Livingston had terminal problems in Turn 3. The fourth and fifth yellow flags quickly followed on laps 29 and 31.
Lining up for what would turn out to be the final restart, Parker held the lead, while Derrick, Claar, Sweeney and Sample completed the top five. Sample opted to restart to the outside of Parker, joined on the high side by Michael Waters and Britt.
As the race resumed, Parker and Derrick bolted ahead on the backstretch, eager to settle the victory between themselves.
Coming around to complete lap 32, Derrick slipped a fender underneath Parker off Turn 4. Parker was able to maintain momentum on the outside and held Derrick at bay on laps 32, 33 and 34. On lap 35, though, the inside lane paid off for Derrick and he returned to the lead.
Parker remained with striking distance until lap 39 when Derrick extended his margin to three lengths along the backstretch. Parker tried to rally on the white-flag lap, but his late charge came up a couple car-lengths short at the checkers as Derrick won by 0.338-second.
Claar tailed Derrick and Parker to the line, in third, followed by Sweeney and Britt, who enjoyed his best outing of the season. Boyd was sixth at the end, while Waters, Andrew Condrey, Sample and Shawn Scovel rounded out the top 10. Billy Newman was 11th, the final driver on the lead lap.
In Victory Lane after the race, Derrick, who had already clinched the title coming into the night, commented on his motivation: My sponsors, my crew, my family, my friends, everybody wanted me to come out here and try to get one more. This is one great way to end the season. Four championships in a row. I still cannot believe it. Four years ago, I was wondering if I ever was gonna win one. Now, four years later, I've got four of em.
Derrick's run to the championship wasn't without adversity: I've gotta thank my crew. Middle part of the season, I destroyed this car. I thought our chances of winning the championship were over, but they all wanted me to get it going and keep trying. I wanted to quit, but I'm glad we didn't.
In the final points tally, pending official verification, Derrick ended up with 338 points to 303 for Sweeney. Lubno, Claar and Mark Frye were third, fourth and fifth, respectively, in the rankings.

In the evening's other feature events:

In the 25-lap season finale for the Larry King Law Super Trucks, Troy Turnage assumed the lead on the 21st circuit and rolled to his fourth win, coming up just short of the division championship, which went to Robbie Davis.
Tommy Nixon, the 2011 champ, was the pole-sitter for the event, turning in a 74.283-mph qualifying effort. Davis was second-quickest, followed by Turnage, Chase McAdams and Bill Wallace.
On the start, Nixon and Davis dueled side-by-side until they reached Turns 3 and 4. Through the corner, Davis drifted wide and Nixon gained the upper hand. As Nixon pulled away, Turnage took advantage of the open lane and slipped into second, while Davis dropped to third.
By lap 9, Turnage had closed to within a truck-length of Nixon's tailgate. Nixon stymied the charge, however, and stretched his lead to three lengths as Davis zeroed in on Turnage.
Just past the halfway mark, the leaders began to encounter slower traffic and Davis capitalized, scooting around Turnage for the second spot on lap 15. A lap later, Davis was parked on Nixon's tailgate and looking for the lead.
Davis drove underneath Nixon into Turn 1 on lap 19, but couldn't complete the pass as Nixon was able to generate strong runs from Turn 4 to the flagstand. The battled ended on lap 21 when Brad Adams spun in Turn 4 to bring out the first caution flag.
Three more caution flags would wave before the scoreboard budged from lap 20. On the second of the three, Davis and Nixon tangled in Turns 1 and 2 and Nixon spun, handing the lead to third-place Turnage. And, on the next restart, Wallace and McAdams triggered a multi-truck incident in Turns 3 and 4, which chased Davis, among others, to the sidelines.
One more lap was completed before the fifth, and final, yellow flag flew on lap 22. Lining up for the restart, with four to go, Turnage showed the way, followed by Nixon, who had dodged the carnage to get back up to second, Chris Munger, McAdams and David Millard.
Back under green, Munger, who restarted to Turnage's outside, put up a strong tussle, trying to wrest the lead away. Turnage nosed ahead as they completed lap 22, though, and cleared Munger at the start/finish line at the end of lap 23. As Turnage drove away, Nixon ducked underneath Munger in a bid for second.
At the finish, Turnage was the winner by 0.301-second a single truck-length over Nixon. Munger was third, followed by Millard and McAdams.
Davis ended up eighth in the final rundown, which was good enough to secure the division championship. He wound up with 275 points, six better than Turnage, who had 269. Nixon was third, while Chris Bechtel and Buck Munger were fourth and fifth, in that order.

In the 25-lap finale for the Cycle City Corp. INEX Legends, Nick Smith completed a perfect season with his seventh victory in as many events, wrapping up the championship in the process.
Smith was the fast qualifier, at 78.961 mph, and started on the pole, sharing the front row with Spencer Saunders. Woody Howard and Brenden "Butterbean" Queen made up Row 2, while Connor Hall rounded out the top five on the 16-car grid.
As the race got going, Smith leaped into the lead with Howard on his heels. Behind them, Saunders and Queen battled all the way to Turn 4. Exiting the corner, they bumped wheels and spun. Saunders got the worst of the exchange, plowing into the outside wall and taking Steve Keesee and Brian May with him. The incident sidelined Saunders and Keesee, who were fighting to hold their points positions.
Back under green, Smith and Howard bolted from the pack. Howard took a look underneath Smith off Turn 2 on lap 5, but fell back in line. On lap 8, Chris Raiford slipped past Cameron Patrick for third. Two laps later, Queen overtook Patrick for fourth.
At the head of the field, Smith, having staved off the early challenge, was keeping Howard at arm's length. He increased his lead to as much as three lengths, but saw the margin shrink as he headed into slower traffic on lap 19.
The race's second and third caution flags appeared on lap 23. The first one came out when Bobby Gobble stopped in Turn 2 and the other waved when Chris Hildebrand spun on the ensuing restart.
On the last restart, Smith quickly fashioned a two-length advantage over Howard, who had a mirror-full of Raiford.
With the white flag in the air, Howard made one final push for the victory, swinging to the high side in Turns 3 and 4. The gambit didn't pay off, though, as he lost ground to Smith and nearly gave away the second spot.
At the finish, Smith won by four lengths 0.691-second, to be precise. Howard was second, barely holding off Raiford. They were separated by only 10-thousandths of a second at the line. Queen was fourth and Patrick completed the top five.
In the final points tally, Smith claimed the title by 19 over Howard, 182-163. Queen took advantage of Saunders and Keesee's misfortune, jumping from fifth to third. Keesee wound up fourth, while Saunders was fifth, getting the tiebreaker nod over Connor Hall.

Denver Alvis led 24 of 25 laps and posted his first victory in the SavitaPets.com UCAR feature, taking the lead for good on the 23rd circuit.
Alvis set the fast time in qualifying, at 72.507 mph. Points leader Bill Eaker shared the front row with Alvis, while Jason Michaud and Tim Wilson lined up in Row 2 and Robbie Salas completed the top five.
At the drop of the green flag, Alvis hauled the field off into Turn 1. Michaud drove underneath Eaker in a bid for second. Eaker won the race back to the stripe on lap 1, but Michaud grabbed the spot on lap 2. Eaker settled back into third, followed by Wilson and Sammy Gaita, Eaker's closest challenger in the standings. By lap 5, Alvis had forged a two-length lead over Michaud. Three more car-lengths separated Michaud from Eaker.
The first caution flag flew on lap 8 when Eaker looped his machine to the infield in the middle of Turns 3 and 4. After a visit to the pits to allow his crew to check for damage, he rejoined the tail of the field.
As the race resumed, Alvis and Michaud quickly cleared the host of cars who had restarted to their outside. Wilson soon joined them, making up a three-car group at the head of the pack. Meanwhile, Eaker had taken advantage of the outside line to move back toward the front.
On lap 21, Michaud pulled to within a car-length of Alvis and looked to be ready to challenge for the lead. Alvis saw him coming, though, and stretched his margin to three lengths off Turn 4.
The second, and final, caution flag appeared on lap 22 when Ronnie Vance and his right-front wheel parted company off Turn 4. Lining up for a four-lap dash to the checkers, Alvis and Michaud ran 1-2. Wilson broke ranks and pulled alongside Alvis, joined by Eaker.
Back under green, Wilson hung tough on the outside and grabbed the lead from Alvis off Turn 2. Alvis returned the favor in Turn 2 on lap 23, though, retaking the top spot at the end of the backstretch. Eaker, meanwhile, emerged from the scramble in third.
Over the last couple of laps, Alvis distanced himself from the pack, winning by 0.781-second about four lengths over Wilson. Eaker was third, followed by Michaud and Jon Largena.
Eaker will carry a commanding 23-point lead over Gaita into next weekend's finale, 257-234. He can sew up the title by finishing 24th or better. Largena is third in the standings, only three behind Gaita, while Wilson and Landon Abbott round out the top five.

In the 30-lap Standard Welding Pro Six race, Landon Florian survived a late tangle with a slower machine and held on for his third win of the season.
Casey Sipe was the pole-sitter, at 81.188 mph, and shared the front row with Steve Williams. Nelson Moody and Bobby Hall lined up in Row 2, while Florian, the points leader, launched from fifth on the 11-car grid.
On the start, Sipe and Williams dueled until they reached Turns 3 and 4. Through the corner, Sipe pulled ahead, relegating Williams to second, followed by Moody, Florian and Hall. On lap 3, Florian overtook Moody and set off after the lead duo.
The running order at the front remained unchanged until lap 18 when Florian tracked down Williams and drove under him off Turn 4. He completed the pass for second on lap 19, then set his sights on Sipe, who had opened a three-length advantage amidst lapped traffic.
Storming into Turn 1 on lap 21, Florian pulled up on Sipe's rear bumper. He shadowed the leader down the backstretch, then made his move in Turn 4, poking a fender underneath Sipe. The two went side-by-side for a lap with Florian motoring ahead through Turns 3 and 4 on lap 22.
A couple laps later, Florian ran up on J.B. Sipe at the entrance to Turn 1. Florian went low to make the pass and the two tangled in Turn 2. Florian continued on, but sustained heavy cosmetic damage to his right-front corner. Casey Sipe, meanwhile, got the worst of the exchange as he gave up spots to Williams and Moody, dropping to fourth.
Over the last few circuits, Williams closed rapidly on Florian's wounded machine. He ran out of time, though, as Florian hung on at the end to win by 0.379-second about two lengths. Moody was third, followed by Casey Sipe and Hall.
Florian will head into next weekend's season-ender with a two-point lead over Williams, 218-216. With the tiebreaker in his favor, he can claim the championship by finishing within two positions of Williams in the finale. Moody, Casey Sipe and Hall complete the top five in the standings.

Ryleigh Lemonds and Madyson Mulligan split a pair of 20-lappers for the Xtreme Mechanical Service INEX Bandoleros as Lemonds wrapped up the 2012 championship.
In the opener, Lemonds backed up a record-setting qualifying effort (67.079 mph) with a flag-to-flag victory, her fourth of the season. She overwhelmed the field and won by a whopping 14.375 seconds. Mulligan was second, followed by Lexi Perry, Kaleb Jusino and Bradley Wilson.
In the second race, Lemonds picked up right where she left off, dashing away to a half-lap lead by the midway point.
On lap 13, though, she went wide in Turn 4 to put a lap on Wilson and spun herself out, bumping the inside wall. She was able to continue, but fell to the rear for the restart.
As the field was coming back to the green flag, the second- and third-place runners, Jusino and Perry tangled in Turn 4, prompting another caution flag. Just like that, Lemonds was back up to third.
On the next restart, Mulligan pulled away by three lengths, while Lemonds bypassed Wilson for second. Within a couple laps, Lemonds had run down Mulligan and began hunting for an opening.
The two youngsters battled nose-to-tail until the white-flag lap when Lemonds slipped underneath Mulligan off Turn 2. They remained side-by-side down the backstretch and through Turns 3 and 4.
Off the final corner, Mulligan mustered just enough momentum to take the win. The official margin of victory was 30-thousandths of a second mere inches. Jusino was third, while Perry and Wilson completed the rundown.
In the final standings, Lemonds claimed the title by 10 over Mulligan, 154-144. Cameron Bowen, who was credited with sixth place in Saturday's first race, was third, with 117. Perry and Wilson were fourth and fifth, respectively.

In the evening's final event, a 40-lapper for the Cook's Moving Service Enduros, Richard Quinn took the lead on the 26th circuit and sailed to his third victory.
Derrick Boggess drew the pole and led the first 25 laps. On lap 19, though, he got pinched into the frontstretch wall and slowed, allowing Quinn to close in and take the lead a few laps later. By the finish, Quinn had extended his winning margin to nearly three-quarters of a lap over runner-up Robert Perry.
Thanks to a poor draw, points leader Alex Floroff was buried near the tail of the starting lineup. He made his way up to the third spot, though, which was more than enough to earn him the 12 Enduro title. Larry Drommerhausen and Jesse Jones were fourth and fifth in Saturday's race.
In the final rankings, Floroff was the champ by 15 points over Drommerhausen, 178-163. Quinn was third, edging Boggess in a tiebreaker, while Bobby Larkin completed the top five.
