Yontz Sets His Sights on Becoming a Two Time Bailey’s 300 Winner 2006 Champion is Looking to Finish The Year Strong
Sep 18, 2008 - updated Sep 18th, 2008 11:58pm

Concord, NC --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:September 17, 2008

Winning the Bailey’s 300 once is quite an accomplishment for any Late Model Stock Car driver, but winning it twice is something only a few drivers have been able to achieve. Becoming a two-time winner of the Bailey’s 300 at Martinsville Speedway (VA) is what Alex Yontz will try to put on his racing resume on September 28th.

“There’s a lot of preparation that goes into that race, that’s for sure. Everything kind of leads up to it,” said Yontz. “That’s what many base their whole season around, trying to get ready for it. Many even test weeks before at places that are similar to Martinsville, just trying to make sure they are fully ready for it when they get there and that everything is good and fresh on the car. This is a huge race for us, that’s for sure.”

Preparation and testing paid off for the North Carolina native in 2006 when he captured his first Bailey’s 300 victory. Yontz dominated the end of the race by leading 91 out of the 100 final laps. Along with the title of being a Bailey’s 300 winner, he also received one of the most unique trophies in racing.

“The trophy was a grandfather clock and it’s probably one of the best, most historic trophies there is. It is great just to be able to say you have one and it’s not just a regular trophy in the trophy case. I still have it and keep it in my bedroom actually.”

Going to the race in 2007, Yontz didn’t have the outcome as the previous year. After getting caught up in an accident, he was unable to finish the race and ended up with a 29th-place finish.

This year, Yontz is hoping to have better luck at the race after having what has been a successful racing year so far. He is currently third in points in the UARA Stars Series, which included a win this season at Bristol.

Before Yontz can look towards victory lane, he first has to make it into the field for the Bailey’s 300, which is considered to be one of the biggest challenges of the weekend. Only the top 22 cars make the show on qualifying time with the rest of the starting grid determined by four different heat races, where the top-five cars advance to the show.

“The first thing you have to work for is making the race. You go up there and test and you have to make sure you’re good with qualifying trim, but at the same time make sure you race good,” explained Yontz. “But I guess the first obstacle is getting in the show, making sure you qualify on time. That’s probably the most difficult obstacle to work around.”

Qualifying for the Bailey’s 300 is scheduled for Saturday, September 27th at 1pm. On Sunday, September 28th, heat races will begin at 12:30pm with the race starting at 3pm.
