Sophia, N.C. --

For Immediate Release

Saturday Night was Military Appreciation Night at Caraway Speedway in honor of all active and former Military personnel. The Late Model Truck Division was the highlight of the evenings schedule with twin 25 lap events!

The first of the twin 25's kicked the night off with a bang as "Mr. Excitement" Allen
Vance parked his Allred Motorsports/Ricky Sweat Painting Chevrolet in Victory Lane for the 3rd time this season, edging Brandin Wrisley by a margin of 0.28 seconds for the win. Pole Award winner Billy Hogan wasn't as fortunate as mechanical issues dissolved his chances of a win while leading. Gene Kepley, Nick Freeman, and Eddie Collins rounded out the top 5.

The Legends Event followed the trucks, in a race that brought Zane Smith to victory lane in dominating fashion over runner up Jason Austin. Followed by Ronnie Milroy and Jan Ingram who rounded out the field.

The Hornets division was next on the lineup. Tommy Raino blazed his way through the field en route to yet another win on the 2014 season over a hard charging Gary Poe, who scored his best career finish. Timothy Clay, Brian Melville Jr., and Michael Foster rounded out the top 5.

The UCar Division saw rookie contender Corey Rose score his first career win (pending tech until Tuesday afternoon) over Ben Hanks after misfortunes saw late race leader Jimmy Crigger have to dive to pit road just one corner away from a nearly certain victory.

Jimmy Cooper was 3rd, followed by Alex Whatley in 4th, and Brian Melville brought home the final top 5 spot.

The second of the twin 25's for the Late Model Trucks found the field inverted for
the start, thus putting race one winner Allen Vance starting in the rear and placed
Billy Hogan on the pole. Hogan stretched a big lead early, seeming untouchable by his competition until Mechanical issues yet again ruined his chances and removed him from the race. Both Brandin Wrisley and Allen Vance charged hard through the field with Wrisley being the eventual victor of the race over Vance who gave him a hard run for the checkers in the closing laps. Gene Kepley finished 3rd, followed by "Slick Nick" Freeman in 4th and Eddie Collins bringing home 5th.

The Wildcat division yet again put on an excellent exhibition as Brian Rose and Tommy Isom faught hard for 15 laps with Rose taking the checkered flag over Isom who rounded off the field.

Coming up Saturday Night (May 31st) is $5 Fan / Kid’s Appreciation Night with Twin feature races for NASCAR Limited Late Models, and a host of others! There will be bicycle races for the kids as well as school bus rides, so be sure to bring along all your friends and family to be a part of the action and excitement at everyone's favorite .455 mile oval. Kid’s bring your bikes for the bike races, age groups 3-6 on Bikes, 3-6 on Tri-
Cycles, 7-10 on Bikes, 11 & up on Bikes and a battery operated power wheel race also.

Grandstands open at 5pm, Trackside Parking gates open at 3pm for tailgating and the event gets underway at 7pm. For more information contact the speedway office at 336-629-5803 or www.carawayspeedway and be sure to follow us on twitter and facebook.
