Arthur, Hamilton, Folmar And Childress Visit Victory Lane On Opening Night At Virginia Motor Speedway

Jamaica, VA --

Walker Arthur of Forest, VA finished 2006 as the Victory Lap Late Model Rookie of the Year. After the divisions first race of the season he starts the season as the divisions point leader after taking home a convincing win in the 35 lap feature on WRAR Opening Night.

Arthur set fast time in Hot Lap Time Trials and inverted the top four putting Brian Staton and Tom Cohick leading the field to green. Cohick led the first lap, but only by inches as Staton battled back to the inside to take the lead out of turn 2 followed by Arthur, Kincaid and Long.

Arthur got under Staton in turn 2 on lap six when Staton checked up to gather his car back up. Staton would not give up and continually tried the inside as the two raced side by side for the lead. Staton took the lead on lap 11 only to give it back on lap 12 to Arthur. By lap 30 Arthur had extended his lead to ten car lengths when the races final caution came out for a spin by Tyler bailey in turn 2.

On the restart Staton had one shot to get by Arthur and on the drop of the green flag Staton jumped to the inside of Arthur but couldn’t take the lead and lost second to Brett Royal. Arthur held on to take the victory by 1.711 seconds over Royal.

“Brian Staton is one of the top racers in the area, when I saw him looking to the inside I knew I had to change my line if I wanted to keep the lead,” commented race winner Walker Arthur when asked about his battle with Staton.

Rounding out the top five were Brett Royal, Brian Staton, Jared Powell and Jason Cahall. William King picked up the Thurston Spring Service Rookie of the Race Award with his twelfth place finish.

The Budweiser Modified 25 lap feature came down to the last lap and the last corner to determine a winner. Brent Bordeaux set fast time in Hot lap Qualifying and inverted the top six with the pill draw. That put Brian Dobie and Chuck Marks on the front row. Dobie blasted to the lead with Bret Hamilton, Mark Schools and Bill Roberts in close pursuit. It took 12 laps for Hamilton to finally get to the inside of Dobie for the lead on lap 13.

On lap 18 Tommy Shiflet took second away from Dobie and set out to catch Hamilton. Shiflet worked the inside as Hamilton worked the high side as the two raced side by side for five laps until Shiflet took the top spot on lap 23. Hamilton would not give up and kept pressuring Shiflet on the outside. On the white flag lap the two came up on slower traffic with Shiflet getting pinned behind the slower car allowing Hamilton to briefly take the lead back. Shiflet battled back and pulled inside Hamilton in turn 3 and looked to have the momentum to get the win until his car jumped sideways spinning out of turn with the win going to Hamilton.

“It wasn’t an easy, I finished the car this morning, broke a transmission in hot laps and had to battle with Shiflet to get a win. I saw him coming up through the field on the scoreboard and knew he would be tough, I got a little help from that slower car,” commented race winner Bret Hamilton.

Rounding out the top five were Brent Bordeaux, Bill Roberts, Mark Schools and Page Harrison. Rich Marks picked up the Thurston Spring Service Rookie of the Race Award with his seventh place finish.

In the New Generation Racing Sprint Car 25 lap feature the night belonged to Phillipsburg, PA’s Craig Folmar. In Hot Lap Time Trials Folmar set a new track record with a lap of 17.556 seconds. Folmar drew an eight putting Bobby Mazingo and Daren Bolac leading the field to green. As the field exited turn 2 Scott Davis emerged as the leader, with Bolac and Mozingo in close pursuit.

Folmar worked his way into second on lap 5 and then rocketed to the inside of Davis out of turn 2 to take the lead. Folmar began to put distance on the rest of the field when the races second and final caution came out when Clarence cox blew a motor in turn 3 and then collecting Tim Hamlet.

On the restart Folmar pulled away from Davis and Bolac as they battled for second. With Folmar in control all eyes were on Mary Anne Williams as she worked her way from the rear to take fourth from Mazingo. Folmar pulled and easily cruised to his first VMS victory.

“We just wanted to take out time and stay out of trouble, the track was just beautiful tonight, you guys put on a heck of a race,” commented first time VMS winner Folmar.

Rounding out the top five were Scott Davis, Daren Bolac, Mary Anne Williams and Matt Stambaugh. Daren Bolac picked up the Thurston Spring Service Rookie of the Race Award with his third place finish.

In the All American division 15 lap feature Stephen Childress of St. Stephens church, VA held off Dustin Owens to take home his second career victory. Owens, Kevin Fletcher, Marty Coltrain and William Dunn battled the entire 15 laps for position in a very exciting race. Rounding out the top five were Dustin Owens, Kevin Fletcher, William Dunn and Bobby Shreves.
