|Cory Hedgecock Debuts Self-Designed BMF Race Car with Boyd’s Victory
Bags $2,000 Victory in Crate Late Model Portion of The Gobbler
LOUDON, Tenn. (11/21/22) – Cory Hedgecock debuted his family’s self-designed W.E. Hardscapes & Masonry / Noble Knights Construction Services / No. 23 Currin Construction / BMF Race Car / Eagle Racing Engine Crate Late Model with a $2,000 triumph on Saturday afternoon at Boyd’s Speedway.
The victory in the annual Gobbler at the Georgia oval held special meaning for Cory and his team.
“First race on the new BMF Racecar, and we started third and won it! We were super-fast and glad to say we won our very first night out. It’s very surreal and humbling. This is mine and dad’s ideas front to back, and can’t thank everyone enough, including Bruce Nunnally for welding away and building us a good strong safe piece,” Cory Hedgecock said. “We’ve got some good notes for our future customers and the second one comes off the jig this week.
“In the Super Late Model we started horrible but bounced back in the feature and got as high as second before finishing third. We’re definitely ready for the next one.”
Cory Hedgecock invaded Boyd’s Speedway (Ringgold, Ga.) on Saturday afternoon to pull double duty in both the Super Late Model and Crate Late Model ranks for the annual Gobbler.
Debuting his brand new BMF Crate Late Model built by Cory and his father, Hedgecock followed up the third-fastest qualifying effort with his 12th win of the season in the feature. He overtook early pacesetter Chip Brindle on lap 12 and the led the remainder of the 25-lapper to claim a $2,000 prize.
In a field of 39 Valvoline Iron-Man Southern Series entries, Cory’s fifth-to-third run in his heat race positioned him on the fifth row for the $10,000-to-win A-Main.
Working his way forward, Hedgecock was into the top-five by lap 13 and closed in on frontrunner Dale McDowell in the final 10 circuits but lost momentum after a late-race caution. He went onto place third, trailing McDowell and Mack McCarter to the checkers with Michael Page and Michael Chilton completing the top-five finishers.
