Cory Hedgecock Goes Back-To-Back at The Gap
Georgia Doubleheader with Durrence Layne Series Up Next
Loudon, Tennessee (05/15/18 ) – For the second-straight week Cory Hedgecock conquered the Steel Head Late Model action at Tennessee’s Volunteer Speedway in his Cushman #23 K&P Used Cars/ Transport One/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Eagle Racing Engine racecar.
The win was his ninth of the 2018 campaign.
“There were some really good Steel Head racers there, so I knew I had to get to the lead quickly in the feature, and thankfully that’s exactly what I was able to accomplish,” Hedgecock recounted. “From there I just had to do my job. In the Crate Late Model feature, we just weren’t very good. A win and a Top-5 finish isn’t so bad though.
“I want to thank Cushman, Eagle Racing Engines, Valley Transport, Budget Transmissions, Transport One, Renegade Fuels and Lubricants, K&P Used Cars, Five Star Hyundai, Timeless Memories Photography, VooDoo Technologies, my family, and everyone who helps me.”
On Saturday night Cory Hedgecock returned to Volunteer Speedway (Bulls Gap, Tennessee), competing in both the Steel Head and Crate Late Model divisions. With 26 Steelhead Late Models registered for action, Hedgecock laid down the third-fastest time in qualifying, which locked him into the third-starting position for the feature.
Charging into the lead on opening lap, Cory held off Barrett Lowe in the closing laps to capture his second-straight victory and ninth overall. Lowe, Austin Neely, Gary Crittenden, and Greg Estes completed the Top-5 finishers in the 25-lap affair.
During the same night in the Crate Late Model ranks, Hedgecock locked his spot into the show with the 11th-fastest time in a field of 21 cars. Reeling in a Top-5 finish in the feature, Cory jumped six spots to finish 5th behind Jason Welshan, Rusty Ballenger, Tim Byrd, and Jesse Lowe.

The upcoming weekend – May 18-19 – will take Cory to Georgia, where he’ll lead the Durrence Layne Dirt Late Model Series into battle in a pair of events. On Friday evening a $2,000-to-win event will be held at Oglethorpe Speedway Park (Oglethorpe, Georgia), while Saturday will find the team competing at Cochran Motor Speedway (Cochran, Georgia) in a $4,000-to-win program.
