Hubbard Takes Victory Lap Late Model $25,000 Challenge Race and Points Lead at Virginia Motor Speedway
Sep 2, 2007 - updated Sep 2nd, 2007 12:10am
Web posted by

Jamaica, VA --

Heading into round 4 of the Victory Lap Late Model $25,000 Challenge presented by BB&T at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway two drivers had a chance at a $5000 bonus, Austin Hubbard of Seaford, DE had other ideas. Hubbard worked his way from sixth to the lead on lap 4 with an outside pass on Neil McClanan of Moyock, NC. He then dominated the remaining 36 laps to take round 4 of the four race series over Brett Royal and McClanan to deny both drivers the bonus.

“The crew has been working very hard on this car, it was just a breeze to drive tonight, I hate the Tom Cohick had problems I love racing with him each week,” commented a very happy Hubbard in victory lane.

Rounding out the top five were Brett Royal (started 14th), Neil McClanan, Stevie Long and Sommey Lacey. Neil McClanan picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his third place finish. With the win Austin Hubbard also took over the Victory Lap Late Model point lead, Hubbard will go into the last point race with an eight point advantage over Tom Cohick. The Victory Lap Late Model Champion will pocket a cool $10,000 for his efforts.

In other action Brett Hamilton of Powhatan VA held off Matt Marshall of Stuarts Draft, VA to take his fifth win in the Budweiser Modified division. In the New Generation Racing Sprint Car division Craig Folmar of Phillipsburg, PA lead on lap six of the 25 lap affair to go on and post his eighth win of 2007. In the Truckin Thunder 30 lap feature Tim Shelton of Fredericksburg, VA took the lead on lap six on way to his fifth win of the season.

In round 4 of the Victory Lap Late Model $25,000 Challenge presented by BB&T Neil McClanan and Walker Arthur led the field to green. McClanan would lead the first circuit and Austin Hubbard went three wide to move to third.

On lap 3 Hubbard worked inside McClanan on the backstretch heading into turn 3 to take the lead. On lap 10 Sommey Lacey took third from Tom Cohick. On lap 11 fourteenth starting Brett Royal worked inside Cohick for fourth. Royal then began to work Lacey for third and took the position on lap 14.

By the halfway point Hubbard had built a 2.559 second lead over McClanan and Royal and began working heavy traffic. On lap 22 Hubbard made it three wide with lapped traffic in turn 3 and began to distance himself from the battle for second as they got caught in the traffic.

In traffic Royal got inside McClanan for second and set out to catch Hubbard. The only thing that slowed Hubbard was a couple of late cautions and on each ensuing restart he would pull away. The last caution came out on lap 38 and set up a two lap dash to the finish. On the final restart Hubbard was the only thing standing in the way of Royal or McClanan from taking the victory and claiming a $5000 bonus.

On the restart Hubbard left no doubt he was taking home the hardware and spoiling their chances as he pulled away and motored on to his second win of the season. More importantly Hubbard also took over the top spot in the chase for the championship with one event left to go before crowning a champion.

Rounding out the top five were Brett Royal (started 14th), Neil McClanan, Stevie Long and Sommey Lacey.

In the New Generation Racing Sprint Car 25 lap feature Craig Folmar of Phillipsburg, VA left no doubt that he was on a mission. Folmar set fast time in Hot Lap Time Trials, inverting the top eight cars. That put Brian Lawson and Charlie Fasano on the front row and leading the field to green. Fasano took control out of turn 2 to go on to lead the first circuit.

By lap 3 Folmar had worked his way to second and looking for the lead. Fasano was able to hold Folmar off for 2 laps until Folmar rocketed to the outside of out of turn 2 on lap 5 to take control of the event.

Once out front the only things to slow Folmar were cautions. The last caution came out on lap 23 for a spin by teammate Matt Stambaugh. On the restart Daren Bolac had one chance to get the inside of Folmar and it was in turn 1. On the drop of the green flag Bolac jumped to the inside of Folmar heading into turn 1, but Folmar powered around the outside to keep control and go on to his eighth win of the season. Rounding out the top five were Daren Bolac, Charlie Fasano, Bobby Mazingo and Matt Stambaugh. Daren Bolac picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his second place finish.

In the caution filled Budweiser Modified 25 lap feature Bret Hamilton of Powhatan, VA had to hold off a last lap charge by Matt Marshall of Stuarts Draft, VA to take home his fifth win of 2007. The opening lap was the most important as Hamilton gained control on the drop of the green flag.

Hamilton kept a two car length advantage over Marshall and Brian Dobie as they battled for second. Also battling in the top five were Brent Bordeaux and Brandon Galloway for fourth. The races last caution brought the field to a green, white and checkered finish. On the restart Marshall went to the high side of Hamilton and then crossed over to Hamilton’s inside as they came to the white flag. Hamilton held off the challenge and went on to his fifth victory.

Rounding out the top five were Matt Marshall, Brian Maxey, Brent Bordeaux and Brandon Galloway. Matt Marshall picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his second place finish.

In the Truckin Thunder Sportsman 30 lap feature it took several tries to get the race restart before Chris Stacy led the field single file to green. Kenny Moreland got inside Stacy coming to the line and led the first lap by inches. Once out front Moreland began to pull away with Tim Shelton working his way to second.

On lap 5 Shelton began applying pressure for the lead. On lap 6 Moreland got in the gas bit too hard coming out of turn 4 and looped it in front of the entire field. That handed the lead to Shelton, a lead he would never relinquish as he cruised to his fifth win of 2007. Davis Lipscombe had to hold off Roger Jamerson at the line to take second. Walker Arthur and Okey Synan Jr. rounded out the top five. Todd Traylor picked up the Thurston Spring Service Dirt Series Rookie of the Race Award with his sixth place finish.
