Virginia Motor Speedway News
Clanton Wins World of Outlaws Thriller at Virginia Motor Speedway, Cohick, Shelton and Maxey Also Take Victories
Jul 23, 2007 - updated Jul 23rd, 2007 10:30pm
Web posted by Dave Seay

Jamica, Va. --

Three months after finishing second in a World of Outlaws Late Model Series event at Virginia Motor Speedway, despite leading nearly half the distance, Shane Clanton pf Locust Grove, GA returned to the half-mile oval in Jamaica, VA and emerged victorious in Friday night's scintillating Summer Sizzler 50 presented by Thurston Spring Service, Inc.

Clanton started from the outside pole in Ronnie Dobbins's Custom-powered RSD Enterprises Rocket, but he had to scratch and claw for every cent of the $10,000 first prize. He was involved in each of the feature's six lead changes - four with Jeremy Miller of Gettysburg, Pa., who fell from contention with mechanical trouble, and two with fellow WoO LMS regular Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky.

The final exchange of the top spot came on lap 45, when Clanton criss-crossed lanes with Lanigan off turn four while racing through lapped traffic and nosed in front at the start/finish line.

Clanton held on to win by 0.539 of a second over Lanigan, whose charge from the eighth starting spot in his gottarace.com Rocket fell short.

“It's exciting when somebody can pull up underneath and pass you, and then you can get back by him for the win,” said a pumped-up Clanton. “Winning the Pittsburgher (100) last year (at Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway) was pretty exciting for me because I beat Chub (Frank), who's so good there. But this is a great feeling, a race I'll never forget.”

When asked about his springtime defeat Clanton stated, ““That went through my mind tonight, It's always in the back of your mind when you come back to a track where you lost a race that you led for a bunch of laps.”

In other action Tom Cohick of Gloucester, VA picked up his fourth Victory Lap Late Model victory in convincing fashion. In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature Tim Shelton of Fredericksburg, VA held off Roger Jamerson of Glen Allen, VA for his fourth win of the season and Brian Maxey of King George, VA picked up his career first Budweiser Modfied victory.

The second visit by the World of Outlaws Late Model Series proved to be a sizzler in more ways than one. Tim Fuller and Shane Clanton led the 24 car field to green with Clanton grabbing the initial lead out of turn 2.

Clanton looked strong as he led the first 20 laps without a challenge. That would all change on lap 21 as Jeremy Miller began to work Clanton for the lead. On lap 22 Miller got to the inside of Clanton in turn 4 and nipped Clanton for the lead. Clanton would not give up and kept working the outside groove and retook the lead on lap 26.

The two raced virtually side by side exchanging the lead on lap 26 and lap 28 with Clanton taking control. On lap 30 Darrell Lanigan worked around Miller for second. On lap 32 Miller retired to the infield with a broken oil line.

The races third and final caution of the evening would come out on lap 32 for David Williams. On the restart Clanton once again got a great restart, this time with Lanigan on his tail. On lap 39 Lanigan, working the inside, got inside Clanton with Clanton holding onto the lead by inches at the start/finish line. Lanigan kept digging on the bottom and finally wrestled the lead form Clanton on Lap 42.

With both drivers working lapped traffic Canton found the opening he needed as he crossed under Lanigan in traffic to retake the lead on lap 44. Over the next six laps Clanton worked the low groove to hold off Lanigan for the hard fought victory. Rounding out the top five were Tim Fuller, thirteenth starting Jason Covert and Steve Francis.

In the Victory Lap Late Model 35 lap feature Stevie Long and Eddie Groome led the field to the green flag with Long gaining the advantage out of turn 2. Long's lead would be short lived as Tom Cohick rocketed to the lead out of turn 4 to lead the opening circuit.

On a lap 4 restart Jared Powell worked to the inside of Cohick but couldn't take the spot as Cohick closed the door and began to pull away.

With Cohick in control the battle was for second, as Powell had to work to hold off teenager Stephen Evans for the position. On lap 6 Neil McClanan worked his way to fifth only to give it up to Eddie Groome on lap 11.

A rash of cautions slowed the middle of the race but on lap 21 things heated up behind Cohick as Long and Groome battled side by side for fourth place. Long would take the spot only to give it back to Groome on lap 24.

With all the action behind him Cohcik cruised to his fourth victory of 2007 with Jared Powell, Stephen Evans, Eddie Groome and Stevie Long rounding out the top five. Evans picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Championship Rookie of the Race Award with his career best third place finish.

In the Budweiser Modified 25 lap feature Brian Maxey and Eric Erwin lead the field to green with Maxey leading the first circuit followed by Erwin and Brandon Galloway. The races first caution came out on lap 2 for a pileup in turn 1. On the restart Galloway shot past Erwin for second and set out to catch Maxey.

By lap 10 Maxey had extended his lead to four car lengths over Galloway, Brent Bordeaux, Mark Schools and Lance Grady. On Lap 11 page Harrison worked past Grady for fifth. On lap 14 Harrison continued his march to the front by taking fourth.

On the lap 14 restart Harrison shot around Bordeaux for third. On lap 17 Bordeaux retook third. On lap 21 caution came out with the battles for second and fifth hot and heavy. On the restart Harrison would take second from Bordeaux and tried feverishly to catch Maxey. Maxey used every inch of the speedway to hold on for his career first Budweiser Modified victory with Harrison .301 seconds behind in second and Brent Bordeaux, Mark Schools and Bret Hamilton rounding out the top five. Maxey also picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Championship Rookie of the Race Award with his career first modified victory.

In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature Robert Kramer and Tim Shelton led the field to green with Shelton grabbing the lead out of turn 2. Caution would fly early as Davis Lipscombe spun in turn 4 while racing Roger Jamerson for second. A complete restart saw the same results as Shelton led the first circuit with Jamerson in close pursuit.

With Shelton and Jamerson battling for the lead, all eyes were on Lipscombe as he worked his way back to the front. By lap 5 he was back in the top ten in seventh place. On lap 6 Lipscombe took fifth from Todd Traylor. On lap 8 Lipscombe worked around Chris Stacy for fourth.

On lap 17 Shelton slide up the track a bit and opened the door for Jamerson to slip to the inside. The two raced side bys side for the lead with Shelton holding on by inches. On lap 22 Lipscombe went after Kenny Moreland for third taking the spot. The races second and final caution came out on lap 27 for a spin by Cyde Glenn Jr. in turn 4.

On the restart Shelton could not get away from Jamerson and on lap 28 Jamerson went inside Shelton for the lead taking it at the line. As they raced into turn 1 the two touched allowing Shelton to retake the lead out of turn 2 and go on to the victory. Rounding out the top five were Roger Jamerson, Kenny Moreland, Davis Lipscombe and Chris Stacy. Kenny Moreland picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Championship Rookie of the Race Award with his third place finish.
