LUCAS LATE MODEL SERIES

Sheppard Tops Moran at Brownstown

Brandon Sheppard Claims First-Career Win at Brownstown Speedway
(HeathLawsonPhotos.com)

 
 
 
BROWNSTOWN, IND. (March 16, 2019) - Brandon Sheppard denied Devin Moran his first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season on Saturday night at Brownstown Speedway.
 
By doing so, Sheppard scored his first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory of the season with his first career win at the historic Brownstown Speedway. Sheppard becomes the fifth different winner on the tour this season after holding off a late-race charge from Devin Moran for the win. Jonathan Davenport finished third, with Hudson O'Neal and Tyler Erb completing the top five.
 
Sheppard made a clean sweep of the night; setting the Miller Welders Overall Fast Time; and winning the first heat race of the night to earn the PFC Brakes Pole Award.
 
Sheppard took the lead at the start of the 50-lap main event with Hudson O'Neal giving chase until the caution for debris on lap 21. On the restart, Devin Moran moved into second and held the runner-up position to the finish.
 
The final caution of the race came with just two laps remaining. Moran and Davenport managed to get within striking distance, but Sheppard forged ahead at the end.
 
"It is great to finally win at Brownstown," said Sheppard. "We have won a lot of heat races and started up front but never been able to put it all together in a night. This car is on rail right now. Thanks to Mark, Austin, Joel, and Danny we are hitting on all cylinders. They have worked their tails off on this car. It is just phenomenal right now. It's a dream to drive this car. I am ready to go to the next one."
 
"I didn't really know if the cautions were helping me or hurting me," Sheppard added. "I was kind of maintaining my pace. The traffic was either in the bottom or the top because that was the line, they would be in. I was slowly breaking my way through the middle. I did all I could to get through there."
 
Moran took home his best finish of the 2019 season. "Congrats to Brandon on the win. That was a good race for the lead there in the last few laps. This team is just getting better and better. For the Jackson 100 we are expecting a little better. I love coming here to Brownstown. My dad [Donnie] never won here so I was trying my best to get that first win for my family."
 
Davenport, who was primed for a late race charge to the lead, took third place at the finish. "Congrats to those guys [Sheppard] that's their fifth win in a row. I think we need to make him start a lap down to give them a little bit of a challenge. All of my guys worked hard, thanks to Nutrien Ag Solutions."
 
The winner's Mark Richards Racing, Rocket Chassis is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by: Valvoline, Seubert Calf Ranches, Ace Metal Works, Keyser Manufacturing, Gunter's Honey, and Integra Racing Shocks.
 
Completing the top ten were Don O'Neal, Josh Richards, Earl Pearson Jr., Tim McCreadie, and Allen Weisser.

DURRENCE LAYNE LATE MODEL series

SANDERS IS HOMETOWN HERO IN DURRENCE LAYNE WINTER SHOOTOUT FINALE

 
              COCHRAN, GA – Tyler Sanders of Cochran, GA kept the big money at home Saturday night with a win in Night 2 of the Cochran Clash for the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series at Cochran Motor Speedway. Sanders took the lead on the opening lap, and led all 50 tours to pick up the $3,000 top prize in the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Winter Shoot finale.

 
              Sanders had to hold off held off a late race challenge from Jimmy Elliott of Cleveland, TN, but a late-race caution flag slowed Elliott’s momentum. Sanders was able to pull away in the last nine laps of the race in the H.C. Rowland Trucking Capital, and take a .741 second margin of victory under the checkered flag and his first career Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series win.

 
              “Man this is excellent, as I never expected to win it because this weekend was my first time in a Durrence Layne Chevrolet Late Model,” Sanders said. “My crew signaled to me that somebody was right on me late in the race, and I didn’t know who it was. I was just trying to take it easy, so I quit trying to save tires and went for it.”

 
              The defending Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series National Champion Ashton Winger of Hampton, GA finished second in the Keyser Manufacturing Rocket for his second top three finish of the weekend. 

 
Elliott ended up third in the Car Smart Auto Sales Special. Elliott may have lost the battle, but he won the war by picking up his second straight Durrence Layne Chevrolet Winter Shootout Series Championship.

 
              Jake Knowles came from the tenth starting spot in the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Special and finished fourth. Knowles dusted off the top shelf of Cochran Motor Speedway and ran as high as third by lap 28. That earned the second-generation driver the VP Racing Lubricants Slick Move of the Race Award.

 
              Drew Kennedy of Lancing, TN was the Hard Charger of the Race after starting 12th in the Schubert Monument Sales Rocket and finishing fifth. Travis Pennington of Stapleton, GA was sixth in the U.S. Duffie Hauling Special, coming back from a mid-race pit stop to change a cut tire, and Pearson Lee Williams of Dublin, GA took the seventh spot in the Dublin Tire Special.

 
              Jody Knowles of Tyrone, GA finished eighth in the Clayton Signs Rocket, and Todd Hurst of Lineville, AL was ninth in the Hurst Construction Rocket. Joseph Brown of Columbus, GA rounded out the top ten in the Lewis Auto Sales Rocket.

 
              In preliminary action, Jimmy Thomas of Phenix City, AL was the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Fast Qualifier for the second straight night with a lap around Cochran Motor Speedway in 15.082 seconds in the Jenwood, Inc. Special. The ten-lap B-Main Race was won by Wil Herrington of Hawkinsville, GA in the Middle Georgia Roofing CVR.

 
              Thomas led the field into the first turn from pole position to start the race, and contact was made between Thomas and the outside front row starter Winger in turn two. That opened the door for Sanders to take the lead from his fourth starting spot. Sanders led lap one followed by Winger, Thomas, Elliott, and Riley Hickman of Cleveland, TN in the Hickman Manufacturing CVR.

 
              The first of four caution flags came out on lap four when Colby Boyett of Bainbridge, GA in the Circle B Contracting Rocket sailed off the banking in turn four. Sanders lined up for the Dixie-Style Double-File Restart with Winger, Thomas, Hickman, Elliott, Pennington, Jake Knowles, Corey Dunn of Milledgeville, GA in the Georgia Timber CVR, Brown, and Williams doubled up behind him in second through tenth respectively.

 
              Elliott got by Hickman for fourth on the restart and Knowles moved up to the fifth spot on six. One lap later, Knowles stepped to the outside groove, and pulled even with Elliott to battle side-by-side for the fourth position.

 
              Sanders caught the cars on the tail of the lead lap by the 15th circuit. Knowles worked his way past Elliott for fourth, and kept his momentum on the high side to move up and challenge Thomas for the third spot on lap 19. The second caution flag of the race came out on lap 22 when Hickman slowed on the speedway.

 
              Hickman went to the pits for the night as Sanders readied for the double-file restart with Winger, Thomas, Knowles, Elliott, Dunn, Williams, Kennedy, Herrington, and Hurst doubled up behind him. When the green light came back on, Dunn went from sixth to fourth, but had Knowles on his outside battling for the position.

 
              Dunn was done of the night on lap 26 when he headed for the pit area under green. The yellow caution bulb did refire on lap 27 when Pennington slowed on the track with a cut tire. The top ten for the double-file restart was Sanders, Winger, Thomas, Jake Knowles, Elliott, Williams, Kennedy, Jody Knowles, Herrington, and Parker Martin of McIntyre, GA in the Vaden Automotive Special.

 
              After the restart, Jake Knowles got by Thomas for the third spot on lap 28, but the man on the move was Elliott.  The Mohawk Warrior passed Thomas for fourth on lap 29, and then got by Knowles for third on lap 33. One lap later, Elliott passed Winger for second, and then took off after Sanders, who had a half straightaway lead.

 
              Sanders caught lapped traffic on lap 37, and Elliott reeled in the leader. Elliott was running lap times a half a second faster than Sanders. Elliott was right on the leader’s back bumper, but a caution flag slowed the field when Shane Riner of Guyton, GA stalled the Lawn Products Rocket in turn two.

 
              The double-file restart for the nine-lap dash to the finish saw Sanders leading Elliott, Winger, Jake Knowles, Kennedy, Williams, Jody Knowles, Hurst, Thomas, Pennington, and Martin down to the green flag. Winger got by Elliott to reclaim the second spot, but Sanders was pulling away. By lap 48, Sanders had an eight car-length advantage over Winger.

 
              The next stop for the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series will be the 2019 season opener for the National Tour with the Rumble On The Gumbo at Greenville Speedway in Greenville, MS on April 5 and 6. The April 5 show will be a $2,000-to-win 40-lap race, and the April 6 event will be $2,500-to-win and 50-laps.

THOMAS SWEEPS NIGHT ONE OF THE DURRENCE LAYNE COCHRAN CLASH


 
              COCHRAN, GA – Jimmy Thomas of Phenix City, AL swept night one of the Cochran Clash for the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series on Friday night at Cochran Motor Speedway driving the Jenwood, Inc. Scorpion. Thomas set Fast Time, started on the pole position for the main event, and then led all 40 laps on his way to the $2,000 top prize.

 
              Thomas held off a mid-race challenge from Jake Knowles of Rome, GA and a late race challenge from Travis Pennington of Stapleton, GA to take just under a second margin of victory at the checkered flag in Round 5 of the 2019 Durrence Layne Chevrolet Winter Shootout Series.

 
              “We did what you want to do and that’s set fast time, lead all of the laps, and win the race, but it wasn’t easy tonight,” Thomas said. “On that last restart, I saw Travis up on the outside, and I knew I had better not make a mistake. The track got better as the race went on, and I think tomorrow night we’ll be able to race all over this thing.”

 
              Pennington had to settle for second in the U.S. Duffie Hauling Special, and the defending Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series National Champion Ashton Winger of Hampton, GA took the third spot in the Keyser Manufacturing Rocket. Pearson Lee Williams of Dublin, GA charged from the 16th starting spot in the Dublin Tire Special and finished fourth.

 
              Clay Harris of Jupiter, FL was fifth in the Dunnrite Construction Rocket, and the defending Winter Shootout Champion and current point leader Jimmy Elliott of Cleveland, TN drove the Car Smart Auto Sales Special to a sixth-place finish. All Elliott has to do is start Saturday night’s race at Cochran Motor Speedway to clinch his second straight Winter Shootout title.

 
              Joseph Brown of Columbus, GA finished seventh in the Lewis Auto Sales Rocket and Walker Arthur of Forest, VA was seventh in the Cecil B. Arthur Beef Farms Special. Wil Herrington of Hawkinsville, GA took the ninth spot in the Middle Georgia Roofing CVR, and Knowles came back from a lap 38 spin to round out the top ten in the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Special.

 
              Thomas was the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Fast Qualifier with a lap around Cochran Motor Speedway in 14.417 seconds, and led the field down for the start of the race from the pole position. Thomas took the lead coming off the second turn followed by Winger, Knowles, Brown and Elliott.

 
              Harris brought out the first of four caution flags in the race when he stalled in turn four, but he was able to restart the race. Thomas led the field down for the Dixie-Style Double-File Restart with Winger, Knowles, Brown, Pennington, Elliott, Parker Martin of McIntyre, GA in the Vaden Automotive Special, Shane Riner of Guyton , GA in the Lawn Products Rocket, Jody Knowles of Tyrone, GA in the Clayton Signs Rocket and Logan Palmer of Acworth, GA in the Prather Special doubled up behind him.

 
              When the green Flag came out, Thomas pulled away with the lead, but Jake Knowles powered around the outside of Winger to take over the second spot, and Pennington dusted off the top shelf of Cochran Motor Speedway and sailed around the outside to advance from fifth to third. That earned Pennington the VP Racing Lubricants Slick Move of the Race Award.

 
              By lap 12, Thomas caught the cars on the tail end of the lead lap, and Knowles began to reel in the leader and make up a 12 car-length deficit. Knowles made it to Thomas’ back bumper by lap 14 and started to look inside the leader. 

 
The lapped cars went away on lap 19 when Drew Kennedy of Lancing, TN cut down a right-rear tire on his Schubert Monument Sales Rocket on the backstretch to bring out the caution flag. Thomas led Jake Knowles, Pennington, Winger, Brown, Riner, Herrington, Martin, Williams, and Riley Hickman of Cleveland, TN in the Hickman Manufacturing CVR in second through tenth respectively down for the restart.
Winger was on the move at the halfway point in the race, as he drove inside Pennington to take over the third spot, and Brown got by Pennington for fourth on lap 22. Pennington got to the inside of Brown on lap 25 down the front straightaway to reclaim the fourth position. Lap 28 saw Elliott pass Brown for the fifth spot.
Thomas once again found himself in heavy lapped traffic on lap 31, but he methodically began putting lapped cars between himself and Knowles. On lap 38, Knowles was trying to knife his way through the lapped cars when he drifted high in turn four, got sideways, clipped Pennington has he moved underneath, and spun to bring out the caution flag.
Knowles had to go to the tail of the cars on the lead lap for the restart with three laps to go. Thomas led Winger, Pennington, Elliott, Brown, Herrington, Williams, Harris, Riner and Arthur down for the double-file restart. 
When the green flag came out to begin the three lap dash to the finish, Pennington stepped to the outside and pulled alongside Thomas going down the backstretch. The top two drivers battled side-by-side for the lead, and just before the white flag was to come out, it was replaced by the yellow flag when Riner stalled on the speedway.
This brought about a green-white-checkered finish with Thomas leading, followed by Winger, Pennington, Williams and Brown doubled up behind the leader. Thomas was able to quickly open up a five car-length advantage over Winger and Pennington, who were battling side-by-side for second. Thomas was unchallenged to the checkered flag, while Pennington got by Winger for second. Williams finished fourth, while Harris rallied home to a fifth-place finish.

BRONSON MAKES HISTORY WITH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP RACE 3-PEAT


 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 
              OCALA, FL – Kyle Bronson of Brandon, FL drove the Brandon Ford Rocket into history at Bubba Raceway Park on Saturday night with his unprecedented third straight Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race win for the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series. Bronson had to drive hard early and often to collect the $10,000 top prize. 

 
Bronson charged from the eighth starting spot to battle with the likes of Tyler Clem of Reddick, FL, Nick Hoffman of Mooresville, MC, and the defending Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series National Champion Ashton Winger of Hampton, GA in a race that saw seven lead changes. Bronson camped out on the bottom groove of the track and used it as his path to victory.
“I love running with the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series because I’ve always had good results,” Bronson said. “After I won this race last year, I went off to race super late models and got my butt kicked. I had to run a little harder than I wanted to early in the race, and Hoffman got up there, on the outside with a good run on me. Usually it’s me pounding the cushion up top and Hoffman running right around the bottom. Tonight we reversed roles.”
Winger started 17th in the Keyser Manufacturing Rocket and finished second to earn the VP Racing Lubricants Slick Move of the Race Award. Winger challenged Bronson for the lead late in the race, but lapped traffic let Bronson get away. Wil Herrington of Hawkinsville, GA took the third spot in the Middle Georgia Roofing CVR.
Earlier in the evening, Herrington recorded a lap in Heat Race competition in 13.999 seconds that was the fastest dirt late model lap ever recorded at Bubba Raceway Park. That includes both super late models with unlimited all aluminum engines and the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Models with $5,895 steel-block, aluminum-head Chevrolet Performance 604 Engines built and sealed at the factory to prevent any expensive modifications.
Joseph Joiner of Milton, FL was fourth in the Cole Services Special, and Clay Harris of Jupiter, FL drove the Dunnrite Construction Rocket to a fifth-place finish. Jake Knowles of Rome, GA took the sixth spot in the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Special, and seventh went to Hoffman in the Hatcher’s Auto Sales Rocket.
Jeff Mathews of Brandon, FL charged from the 23rd starting spot to finish eighth in the CURS Rocket, and Logan Roberson of Waynesboro, VA finished ninth in the BTS Towing Service Rocket. Parker Martin of McIntyre, GA rounded out the top ten in the Vaden Automotive Special.
In preliminary action, Jensen Ford of Piney Flats, TN was the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Fast Qualifier with a lap around the 3/8-mile clay oval in 14.522 seconds. The three ten-lap Heat Races were won by Ford, Clem in the M&W Transport Rocket, and Harris. Jody Knowles of Tyrone, GA won the 12-lap B-Main Race in the Clayton Signs Rocket.
Clem took the lead at the drop of the green flag for Round 3 of the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Winter Shootout Series race from the outside of the front row followed by polesitter Ford, defending Winter Shoot Champion and current point leader Jimmy Elliott of Cleveland, TN in the Car Smart Auto Sales Special, Harris, and Bronson.
Ford clobbered an infield tire marker on a lap five restart to end his evening and bring out the caution flag. Bronson took advantage of the next Dixie-Style Double-File Restart to move up from fourth to second behind Clem. Elliott dropped out of the third spot and went to the pits on lap 15. Race leader Clem reached the cars on the tail end of the lead lap on the 20th tour.
Bronson quickly closed in on Clem in heavy lapped traffic to challenge for the lead. Going into the third turn on lap 25, Clem went high to go around a lapped car, and that opened the door for Bronson, who drove underneath Clem for the lead coming off the fourth turn.
Clem made contact with Harris on a lap 26 restart, and dropped back to the fifth spot behind Bronson, Hoffman, Harris, and Jake Knowles. Clem came back to pass Harris for fourth on lap 29, but Harris reclaimed fourth on a lap 31 restart. A lap 47 caution flag set up a spectacular restart.
Bronson was the leader and he had Hoffman, Devin Dixon of Apollo Beach, FL in the CURS Rocket, Harris, Clem, Walker Arthur of Forest, VA in the Cecil B. Arthur Beef Farms Special, Winger, Ivedent Lloyd Jr. of Ocala, FL in the Bartow Ford Rocket, Jake Knowles, and Herrington doubled up behind him in second through tenth respectively.
When the green came back out, Hoffman pulled up outside Bronson to challenge for the lead. Hoffman nosed ahead of Bronson on lap 48 to take the lead, but it was Bronson coming back to lead lap 50. Hoffman on the outside led lap 51, and Bronson on the inside came back to take the lead on lap 53.
Arthur slowed on lap 57 to bring out the caution flag and give up a top ten position. Bronson led the field down for the double-file restart with Hoffman in second choosing the outside. Harris was third, Dixon Fourth, Winger fifth, Lloyd sixth, Knowles seventh, Herrington eighth, Clem ninth, and Joiner tenth.
Hoffman once again drove up alongside Bronson on the restart, while Dixon passed Harris for third, and Winger moved up to fourth. Hoffman once again grabbed the point from Bronson on lap 58, but Bronson powered back underneath Hoffman to take the lead on lap 61.
A lap 63 caution flag would set up another double-file restart that would change the top ten runners. Bronson led Hoffman, Winger, Dixon, Knowles, Harris, Herrington, Lloyd, Joiner, and Clem down for the restart. Hoffman did not come up to speed quickly, and Winger moved by for second. Winger was able to close in on Bronson and challenge for the lead on lap 69.
Bronson was able to keep the lead in lapped traffic. By lap 75, the bottom groove was the preferred way around the track. Bronson led Winger, Knowles, Hoffman, Herrington, Dixon, Joiner, Harris, Lloyd, and Clem. Bronson began to pull away from Winger, who was trapped behind a lapped car.
With ten laps to go, Bronson had checked out on Winger and held a half straightaway lead over the second-place driver. But the complexion of the race changed on lap 93 when the caution flag came out for Dixon, who stalled in turn two. The big lead for Bronson was gone, and for Winger, the lapped traffic was gone. Game on!!
When the green flag came out for the eight lap dash to the finish, Bronson beat Winger into turn one, and Herrington got by Knowles for the third spot. Winger could keep Bronson within striking distance, but couldn’t get close enough to challenge for the $10,000 top prize. Bronson took the checkered flag with a .822 second margin of victory.
The final two races of the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Winter Shootout will take place at Cochran Motor Speedway in Cochran, GA with the 2nd Annual Cochran Clash. This Friday it’s a $2,000-to-win 40-lap race, and the 2019 Winter Shootout finale will be next Saturday with a $2,500-to-win 50-lap race.

HOFFMAN ROLLS TO DURRENCE LAYNE WINTER SHOOTOUT LATE MODEL WIN


 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 
              OCALA, FL – Nick Hoffman of Mooresville, NC drove the Hatcher’s Auto Sales Rocket into the record books Friday night with his first career Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series win in the 40-lap Winter Shootout race at Bubba Raceway Park. It was the final tune-up for the $10,000-to-win 15th Annual Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race on Saturday night.

 
Hoffman had a spirited battle with Devin Dixon of Apollo Beach, FL early in the race, and then held off Jake Knowles of Rome, GA in the second half of the race. The Bubba Raceway Park clay surface gave the competitors multiple grooves and provided the fans with plenty of two and three-wide racing.
“We were really tight in the A-Main hot laps, and we really didn’t make many changes,” Hoffman said. “The track just came to me, and this kind of track just fits my driving style. They say my right-rear tire is still in pretty good shape. I was trying to baby it those first 15 to 20 laps and make sure I had some left at the end.”
Knowles finished second in the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Longhorn, and made a bold move on a lap seven restart to come from eighth to third riding the high side of the race track. That earned Knowles the VP Racing Lubricants Slick Move of the Race Award.
Dixon led five laps of the race and ended up third in the CURS Rocket, while Thursday night’s winner Kyle Bronson of Brandon, FL took the fourth spot in the Brandon Ford Rocket. Bronson is the defending and two-time Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race winner, and will be going for his unprecedented third straight win on Saturday night.
Tyler Clem of Reddick, FL finished fifth in the M&W Transport Rocket, and sixth went to Jeff Mathews of Brandon, FL in the CURS Rocket. Mathews was the Hard Charger of the Race after starting 21st. Drew Kennedy of Lancing, TN was seventh in the Schubert Monument Sales Rocket, and Clay Harris of Jupiter, FL took the eighth spot in the Dunnrite Construction Rocket.
Derrick Shaw of Buckhannon, WV finished ninth in the TKS Contracting Rocket, and Wil Herrington of Hawkinsville, GA rounded out the top ten in the Middle Georgia Roofing CVR. In preliminary action, Bronson was the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Fast Qualifier for the second straight night with a lap around the 3/8-mile clay oval in 14.471 seconds.
The two ten-lap B-Main Races were won by the defending Winter Shootout Champion and the current point leader Jimmy Elliott of Cleveland, TN in the Car Smart Auto Sales Longhorn, and the defending Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series National Champion Ashton Winger of Hampton, GA in the Keyser Manufacturing Rocket.
When the green flag fell to start the race, it quickly gave way to the yellow caution flag for a multi-car pileup on the front straightaway. Several cars had to pit for repairs, and returned for the complete restart. The wreck took out the cars of Scott Gray of Ocala, FL in the Gray’s Auction Service Longhorn and Walker Arthur of Forest, VA in the Cecil B. Arthur Beef Farms Kryptonite.
Hoffman came from his third starting spot to pass Bronson for the lead in turn three on lap one, followed by outside front row starter Clem in third, Ivedent Lloyd Jr. of Ocala, FL in fourth driving the Bartow Ford Rocket, and Dixon coming up from the ninth starting spot into fifth. Hoffman’s pace was quick as he reached the cars on the tail end of the lead lap by the fifth tour.
The caution flag came out on lap seven when Corey Almond of Appomattox, VA stalled his AA Contractors Longhorn on the backstretch. Hoffman led the field down for the Dixie-Style Double-File Restart with Bronson, Clem, Dixon, Lloyd, Mathews, Elliott, Knowles, Winger, and Harris doubled up behind the leader in second through tenth respectively.
When the field went back to green, the field fanned out into three different racing grooves. Hoffman and Bronson were on the bottom of the track, while Dixon and Knowles dusted off the top shelf. Dixon flew by both Bronson and Hoffman to take the lead on lap nine, and Knowles got by Bronson for the second spot.
Dixon moved up on lapped traffic by lap ten, and Hoffman caught up to challenge for the lead. Hoffman reclaimed the point in heavy lapped traffic on lap 14, and then pulled away from Dixon. What would be the final caution flag came out for debris on the backstretch on lap 24.
With Hoffman out front, the second through tenth-place cars respectively of Dixon, Knowles, Bronson, Clem, Mathews, Kennedy, Harris, Herrington, and Shaw doubled up behind the leader. When the green flag came back out, Knowles drove around the outside of Dixon to take over the second spot, but Hoffman was pulling away.
With ten laps to go, Hoffman had a full straightaway lead on Knowles. Hoffman caught some heavy lapped traffic late in the race, but Knowles was unable to close the gap enough to challenge for the lead. Hoffman took the checkered flag with a 1.632 second margin of victory.
The Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series cars return for their third night of racing at Bubba Raceway Park on Saturday night with the $10,000-to-win 100-lap 15th Annual Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race.

BRONSON CONTINUES HIS DURRENCE LAYNE LATE MODEL MASTERY OF BRP


 
              OCALA, FL – Kyle Bronson of Brandon, FL continued his domination of Bubba Raceway Park on Thursday night by taking his third straight win on the 3/8-mile egg-shaped clay oval in the 40-lap main event in the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Winter Shootout driving the Brandon Ford Rocket. 

 
Dating back to last year, Bronson won two races during World Championship Week last season, including his second straight Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race. This Saturday night, Bronson will be going for his unprecedented third straight $10,000 win in the 15th edition of the prestigious race.
Bronson swept the program by taking the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Fast Time honors with a lap in 14.991 seconds to earn the pole position for the main event. Bronson then led all 40 laps in the big show to win with a 1.266 second margin of victory at the checkered flag. So did Bronson send a message to the rest of the field that he is the man to beat this week?
“I don’t know if I sent a message because there are some good cars here, and there will be even more here tomorrow night and Saturday night,” Bronson said. “This is the first time we’ve run this Rocket Chassis, and it just shows what a good car can do with a good crew working on it. I think the car has more in it after we work on it some more.”
Walker Arthur of Forest, VA, another former World Championship Race winner, finished second in the Cecil B. Arthur Beef Farms Special. Arthur was also the recipient of the VP Racing Lubricants Slick Move of the Race Award when he dodged a lapped car that slowed in front of him while battling for the second spot.
Logan Roberson of Waynesboro, VA took the third spot in the BTS Towing Service Rocket, and Tyler Clem of Reddick, FL was fourth in the M&W Transport Rocket. Nick Hoffman of Mooresville, NC finished fifth in the Hatcher’s Auto Sales Rocket, and Winter Shootout defending Champion and current point leader Jimmy Elliott of Cleveland, TN drove the Car Smart Auto Sales Special to a sixth-place finish.
Drew Kennedy of Lancing, TN finished seventh in the Schubert Monument Sales Rocket, and Jake Knowles of Rome, GA took the eighth spot in the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Special. Todd Cooney of Pleasant, IA started 18th and finished ninth in the Spangler Automotive Special to earn the Hard Charger of the Race Award
David Whitener of Orange Park, FL rounded out the top ten in the Padgett Trucking Special. In other preliminary action, the two ten lap B-Main Races were won by Clem and Wil Herrington of Hawkinsville, GA in the Middle Georgia Roofing CVR.
Bronson took the lead on lap one coming off turn two after a three-wide battle for the lead in the first turn with outside front row starter Jenson Ford of Piney Flats, TN in the Whitehead Construction TNT, and Roberson. In turn three, Roberson drove under Ford for second, while Ford slide up the banking and jumped the cushion in turn four.
That moved Arthur up to the third spot, as Ford settled back into the fourth spot, and Kennedy in fifth. Roberson closed in on Bronson, and looked inside to battle for the lead. Bronson was up to the challenge and that was as close as anyone got the Bronson in the race. Arthur moved up to look inside Roberson on lap three. The pair of Virginia drivers battle side-by-side for several laps.
Bronson caught the cars on tail of the lead lap by the eighth tour, and he began to pull away from Roberson and Arthur, who continued to wage war for the second spot. Arthur had to take evasive action around a lapped car on lap nine, but held his position by a whisker. That was the VP Racing Lubricants Slick Move of the Race Award.
The lapped traffic didn’t slow Bronson down, but the first of four caution flags did on lap ten when Ben Bowie of Brandywine, MD spun his Corbin Construction Rocket in turn four. During the caution period, Ford retired from the race with a mechanical issue. That moved Clem up to the fourth spot and Hoffman restarted in the fifth position.
On the restart, Adam Boyd of Riverview, FL spun the ABS Construction Special in turn two and light the yellow caution bulb for the second time. When the field went back to green, Bronson pulled away from Roberson, who was busy trying to hold off Arthur. Caution flag number three came out on lap 14 when Ken Monahan of Lakeland, FL spun the Bartow Ford Rocket in turn four.
Once again, it was Bronson pulling away from Roberson and Arthur with Clem in fourth, Hoffman fifth, Elliott in sixth, Knowles in seventh, Kennedy in eighth, Whitener in ninth, and defending Bubba Raceway Park Late Model Champion Megan Rae of Tampa, FL in tenth driving the Tommy’s Towing Rocket.
Clem pulled up to make it a three-car dance for the second spot by lap 16. Elliott drove around the outside of Hoffman to claim the fifth spot on lap 17, but Hoffman retook the position just a couple of laps later. At the halfway point, Bronson had stretched out to over a half straightaway lead.
The fourth and final caution flag came out on lap 26 when Boyd stalled in turn two. Bronson was the leader for the Dixie-Style Double-File Restart with Roberson, Arthur, Clem, Hoffman, Elliott, Knowles, Kennedy, Whitener, and Cooney doubled up behind him. 
On the restart, Bronson took off while Arthur drove around the outside of Roberson in turn one to take over the second spot. Bronson continued to drive away, and Arthur had nothing to challenge for the lead. In the closing laps of the race, Clem was able to hold off a challenge from Hoffman to keep the fourth spot.
The Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series will return to Bubba Raceway Park on Friday night for Round 3 of the Winter Shootout with a $2,000-to-win 40-lap main event, the final tune-up for the $10,000-to-win 100-lap 15th Annual Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race on Saturday night.

              Jimmy Elliott of Cleveland, TN will be looking for his second straight Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Winter Shootout Championship. Elliott won the season opener on January 6 at the 28th Annual Ice Bowl at Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, AL. Elliott finished sixth in Round 2 on February 28, the first of three races at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, FL.

 
              The next two races at the 8th Annual Bubba Army Winternationals weren’t as kind as the first race at BRP for the Champ. Elliott was running fifth in the March 1 race, but dropped out on lap 22 of the 40-lap race. Elliott was caught up in a wreck not of his doing in the 15th Annual Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race on March 2, and finished 24th.

 
              Elliott is one of three drivers that have appeared in all four Durrence Layne Chevrolet Winter Shootout races, that include Shannon Davis of Estill Springs, TN and Todd Hurst of Lineville, AL. All three are expected for Rounds 5 and 6 this weekend at Cochran Motor Speedway. Elliott leads the Winter Shootout standings with 310 points.

 
              Kyle Bronson of Brandon, FL is fresh off his unprecedented third-straight Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race win at Bubba Raceway Park on March 2. In over three years of racing with the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series, Bronson has taken over $55,000 in prize money to the bank. Bronson, who also took the win in Round 2 on February 28, is second in the Winter Shootout standings with 292 points.

 
              The defending Durrence Layne Dirt Late Model Series National Champion Ashton Winger of Hampton, GA will be at Cochran Motor Speedway this weekend. Winger finished second in the Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race on March 2. Also expected is the 2018 Durrence Layne Chevrolet National Championship Runner-up Jake Knowles of Rome, GA.

 
Local favorite Wil Herrington of Hawkinsville, GA will defend his home turf after venturing away from familiar territory and turning in a strong third-place finish in the Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race on March 2 at Bubba Raceway Park. Herrington also recorded the fastest lap around BRP during a Heat Race for any type of dirt late model at 13.999 seconds.
Another local favorite bringing some momentum to his home track is 14-year-old Parker Martin of McIntyre, GA. Martin made himself known on the national stage of dirt late model racing at the Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race by driving to a tenth-place finish. It was Martin’s best career finish with the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series.
Martin will be competing for the 2019 VP Racing Fuels Young Guns Challenge Series title with the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series. The VP Racing Fuels Young Guns Challenge Series is for Durrence Layne Chevrolet Late Model drivers that are 18 years of age and younger. They will compete for a separate point this season.
