Virginia Motor Speedway News
Cohick, Bolac, Harrison, Lipscombe And Owens Take Victories At Virginia Motor Speedway
Jul 2, 2006 - updated Jul 2nd, 2006 6:22pm
Web posted by Dave Seay

Saluda, VA --

Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway’s 4th of July celebration included not only fireworks in the air but a plethora of action in every division on Truckin Thunder Night presented by Cecil B. Arthur. In the Victory Lap Late Model 35 lap feature, Roland Mann of Chaptico, Md led flag to flag holding Tom Cohick of Gloucester, VA off at the line for what seemed to be the victory. But Mann’s car would not pass post race inspection handing the win to Cohick.

“This is a special night for me as both my parents were here to watch and I’ve never made it past the opening lap without something happening when they are here. You never like to win them this way but we will take the victory,” commented Cohick.

Cohick started the night off by setting fast time in Hot Lap Time Trials, inverting the top eight with the pill draw. On the drop of the green flag Cohick went from eighth to third in three corners. By lap 13 he was battling Sommey Lacey for second, finally taking the spot on lap 15 of the 35 lap feature.

For much of the race Cohick tried to track down Mann, as he had worked his way to a ten car length advantage. With three laps to go Mann encountered traffic and had difficulty at first getting around the slower cars allowing Cohick to get within a car length. That is all Cohick could muster as Mann took the checkers. In post race inspection, Cohick was handed the win when Mann’s car would not pass inspection. Rounding out the top five were twelfth starting Jamie Lathroum, Sommey Lacey, eighteenth starting Walker Arthur and Larry Grimstead.

In other action Daren Bolac Moyock, NC picked up his first win of the season in the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature when Walker Arthur did not pass post race inspection. In the Budweiser Modified 25 lap feature it looked as if Bret Hamilton of Powhatan, VA would take home the win until his car developed mechanical problems with two to go handing the victory to page Harrison of Jetersville, VA. In the Al’s Auto Parts Charger 25 lap feature it was Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA once again taking home the victory from his eighth place starting position. And in the Dixie Chopper All American 15 lap feature Dustin Owens of North, VA held off a last lap charge by Vernon Kirby to get the win.

In the Victory Lap Late Model Division Tom Cohick set fast time in “Hot Lap” qualifying and inverted the top eight cars putting Sommey Lacey and Mann on the front row leading the field to green. Mann won the drag race into turn one led lap one with Lacey on his bumper and Cohick already in third from his eighth place starting position.

A caution on lap one for a wreck in turn 1 when Anthony Kincaid spun collecting point leader Jared Powell and Jamie Lathroum sending both drivers to the rear for the restart. When the race got back underway Larry Grimstead and Walker Arthur got by Jason Cahall for fifth and sixth as lathroum began his march back to the front.

Mann was the leader but the fastest car on the track was Lathroum. By lap twelve Lathroum had worked the high side to perfection and was in seveth and closing in on the top five.

On lap thirteen Lacey and Cohick battled feverishly for second with Cohick finally wrestling the spot away on lap 15. A caution on lap 17 brought out by a Stevie Long spin while battling for third with Lacey, closed the field on Mann’s bumper. On the restart Lathroum shot to the outside and took third but couldn’t gain any more ground on the leaders.

With three laps to go Mann encountered a little problem getting through traffic allowing Cohick to close the gap to one car length. At the white flag Cohick was on Mann’s bumper, but Mann had enough to hold him off by two car lengths for what seemed to be his second victory of the year. But Mann’s car would not pass post race inspection handing the win to Cohick. It is Cohick third win of th season. Rounding out the top five were twelfth starting Jamie Lathroum, Sommey Lacey, eighteenth starting Walker Arthur and Larry Grimstead. Walker Arthur picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his fourth place finish.

In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman Walker Arthur looked to continue his domination starting with picking up his ninth fast time award in as many tries and relegating himself back to eighth again. William King and Davis Lipscombe led the field to green with Lipscombe coming out with the early lead.

On the next lap Daren Bolac went inside to take the lead with Arthur following for second. Arthur tried several times to make Bolac make a mistake and on lap 4 Bolac slide his car up in turn 4 allowing Arthur to dart to the inside for the lead.

Arthur would go unchallenged for the top spot over the next 20 laps to take his seventh win in a row by over three seconds. But, the race isn’t won officially until after post race inspection and on this night Arthur’s car would not pass handing the win to Daren Bolac. Rounding out the top five were Donnie Owens, Larry Bradsher, William King and seventeenth starting Okey Synan, Jr. Chris Stacy picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his sixth place finish.

In the Budweiser Modified 25 lap feature Tom Eriksen of Hesston, PA set fast time and inverted the top eight qualifiers. That put Renee Weeks and Page Harrison on the front row leading the field to green. Weeks would lead lap one and then relinquish it to a very fast Brian Dobie on lap 3.

Dobie would pace the field with Harrison, Tommy Shiflet, Bret Hamilton and Eriksen in tow. On lap 12 Dobie would bring out the caution when the ignition box on his car malfunctioned ending his night. That handed the lead to Page Harrison with Hamilton in second. On lap 21 Hamilton finally got by Harrison for the lead but with two laps to go Hamilton’s car went to the infield with mechanical problems handing the lead back to Harrison.

Harrison had to hold off a last lap charge by Shiflet but had just enough to pick up his first win of the season. Rounding out the top five were Shiflet, James Snead, Brad Bowling and Donnie Medlin. Shiflet picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his second place finish.

In the Al’s Auto Parts Charger division Davis Lipscombe set fast time inverting the top six drivers. Lipscombe unfortunately could not start any closer than eighth to the speedway’s two win in a row rule.

On the drop of the green flag Chris Tatum and Wesley Givens led the field into turn 1. It was John Imler that worked the outside with perfection to come from fourth and lead the first lap. Bob Terry worked his way from seventh to challenge Imler for the lead on lap 3. Terry would take the top spot on lap four and begin to pull away. A caution on lap 5 tightened the field up on the bumper of Terry. Once back underway Lipscombe began his assault on the top spot, first working the high side, then the low side and then on lap 6 working the high side in turns one and two to take the lead.

Once out front Lipscmbe cruised to his sixth win of the season. Rounding out the top five were Bob Terry, Chris Tatum, Wesley Givens and Ernie Dettbarn. Givens picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his fourth place finish.

The Dixie Chopper All American 15 lap feature may have been the best race of the night. Brett Adkins of Saluda, VA and Vernon Kirby of Glen Allen, VA led the field to green with Adkins getting the advantage out of turn 2. Dustin Owens went right after Adkins for the lead and wrestled it away on lap 2.

On lap 4 Kirby got by Adkins for second and reeled in Owens. Kirby tried every move he could make but couldn’t get past Owens for the lead. While they battle up front Marty Coltrain worked his way into third but could make a serious challenge for the lead.

With two to go Kirby dove under Owens in an attempt to take the lead, the two raced side by side over the next two laps with Owens holding Kirby off for the victory. Rounding out the top five were Kirby, Coltrain, Thomas Rose and Brett Adkins.
