Cory Hedgecock Conquers Crate Late Model Cabin Fever at Boyds
Sweetheart Race at 411 Motor Speedway Up Next

Loudon, Tennessee (02/04/19) – Cory Hedgecock bagged his first win of 2019 on Saturday with a $1,5000 Crate Late Model triumph at Boyds Speedway in his brand-new Cushman #23 K&P Used Cars/ Five Star Hyundai/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Eagle Racing Engine entry.

“I didn’t necessarily end the 2018 season the way that I would’ve liked. It feels like it’s been a while since I won a race, so it feels good to get another one,” Hedgecock commented. “This new XR1 Rocket Chassis felt really good. It was my first time on Integra Shocks and they really helped me have a great handling car. This new Eagle Racing Engine purred all night. We set fast time, started outside pole in the feature, and never looked back. Couldn’t have asked for anymore.

“We’ll get ready for the Sweetheart Race at 411 Motor Speedway in a few weeks, and then really get ramped up for Durrence Layne Series races at Bubba Raceway Park the end of the month.”

On Saturday night Cory Hedgecock hopped behind the wheel of his Valley Transport #23 Crate Late Model for the annual Cabin Fever at Boyd’s Speedway (Ringgold, Georgia). Laying down the fastest time in qualifying, Hedgecock started in the outside-front-row position for the finale.

Rocketing into the lead at the drop of the green flag, Cory led wire-to-wire to pick up his first win of the season over Jimmy Elliott, Cruz Skinner, Chip Brindle, and David Kay.

The team next returns to action on Saturday, February 16 at 411 Motor Speedway (Seymour, Tennessee) with the annual Sweetheart Race.

This is the biggest problem with late model racing right now. A brand new XR1 chassis running in a Crate late model class that is only paying $1500 to win. The crate class was suppose to be a development class for new drivers, or a class for guys that don't have never ending pockets. This is a problem at all tracks here in the mid-south, so not just picking on this one driver. I could be wrong but I think if a guy can afford a new XR1 or Longhorn, etc, he probably has enough money to buy an open motor. It'd be good for Super car counts in this area if some of these crate guys moved up.
