Yelton Picks up Big UARA Win at Lanier

Newton, NC. --

UARA Late Model driver Jamie Yelton has won races at Lanier Speedway, but never like he did this past Saturday Night when the hot shoe from Forest City came from the rear to take home the gold, and became the first repeat Winner of 2006. Yelton made his first visit to Lanier in Late Model, and put on a show that many fans will never forget.

After 23 of the best Late Model drivers in the country took their shot at the Sunoco Pole Award, Mark Setzer came out on top. Jamie Yelton however, felt his car was better then the seventh starting spot that he ended up in. So patience was the goal, and Yelton was just riding in cruz mode, when his plan got changed. As usual the lap cars showed why they were being lapped and can not keep up, plus the driver of the 15 forget to take his no-doz and fell asleep at the wheel taking Yelton out on about lap 20. Seeing that the series has no age rule, we have to take the young with the old, and letting this old driver stay up past 8 at night proved costly for guys that race hard and serious, while this driver sleeps at the wheel and struggle to see at night. But, being that David King had this Marlowe Racing Chassis and Custom Engines by Graham powered hot rod set on kill, Yelton went to the rear and put on a show coming to the front. Jamie took his time passing cars keeping his black 8 car aimed toward the leader. By lap 127 he was there and took over the spot he felt was his on lap 128. As Jamie and Mark have many times in the past, they had every fan on their feet watching to see who was going to spin and who was going to win. Yelton choose to Win and Win he did.

In Victory Lane, Yelton and his Forest City BadBoys celebrated. Jamie has proved many time he can start from the pole and run off and win big, but tonight he showed that he can come from the rear and win big. " I want to thank David King and my crew, this car was good and we knew that, but early in the race a lap car just ran all over me, and we had to go to the rear because of him. I knew if I took my time I could get back to the front and go after this win. And we did. I want to thank Greg Marlowe and all the guys at Marlowe Racing Chassis, Graham Cole from Custom Engines by Graham, we have a motor this year, and all my crew. I knew Mark and I would put on a show and I hope the fans enjoyed it, I know I did, a couple times I got sideways and saved it, and I got into Mark and backed out and let him save his, then a we traded hits a few more times I was able to beat him back to the line. I can not wait till next week, and looking forward to visiting another new track, they seem to be where we are at our best. I want to thank all the fans for coming out tonight and hope that the stands are packed again next weekend".

After a protest from the 48 car and a long night in the tech shed, Yelton's car was cleared by the officials and his crank passed weight, showing that with the right combination of, chassis, engine, crew chief and driver, you don't have to cheat to win.

Jamie Yelton and his Custom Engines by Graham powered Marlowe Racing Chassis has been the car to beat. Leading all 150 laps at MMS, leading 85 Laps at Orange County and the last 25 laps at Lanier. Two (2) Wins, this year Jamie had a Pole at HMS and 72 laps before lap car got him there, lead 12 laps and finished second at SNS, he has a total of 344 Laps lead so far, and only eight (8) charger points. Qualifying up front and racing up front Yelton is currently fourth in UARA points only a slim 49 behind, he was 85 back before the Lanier race. Look for the points to shake up at Shenandoah June 3rd.

Race fans, plan on traveling to the beautiful Shenandoah Speedway in Va. this weekend to see round 8 of the UARA-STARS battle for the Championship. Visit www.jamieyelton.com or www.uara-stars.com for more news and all the latest happenings in best Racing Series in the Country!
