Logan Roberson Enjoys Strong Speedweeks Swing
During the course of the busy trek, the pilot of the Wynbridge Inc. #17 Rocketman Racing/ Rocket Chassis Late Model qualified for all six features. He scored three Top-10 finishes, including a runner-up finish at East Bay Raceway Park.
“Obviously it would’ve been awesome to win a feature, but to make all six features was a really big deal in itself for us,” commented Roberson. “That was our primary goal heading down there, so I’m proud to say we accomplished it. There’s so many fast cars and talented drivers, that it’s a big shot in the arm for our team to start our season on such a strong note.”
Roberson kicked off his season on January 26-28 at Bubba Raceway Park (Ocala, Florida) during the Bubba Army Winternationals. During the course of the NeSmith Late Model Series sanctioned events at the 3/8-mile oval, he qualified for all three features, and registered a best finish of 17th.
Action shifted to East Bay Raceway Park (Gibsonton, Florida) on February 2-4, and Roberson would kick things up a notch with his performances.
Entering the 41st annual Winternationals, Logan Roberson was one 37 Crate Late Models signed in at East Bay Raceway on Thursday night for the opening round of the unsanctioned weekend. After recording the 3rd-quickest time overall in qualifying, Logan stormed to heat race victory, putting him 4th on the starting rundown for the A-Main. Wheeling his way into a podium position, Roberson improved two spots in the opening night 25-lap A-Main, notching a runner-up finish behind Mike Pegher Jr. with Doug Horton, Hudson O'Neal, and Devin Dixon completing the Top 5.
The team has now returned to their home base in Virginia as they prepare for a busy season of regional and local action. Keep your browsers pointed to www.LoganRoberson.com for the latest team and schedule updates.

Cory Hedgecock Stays Perfect on the Season with EAMS Win
Loudon, Tennessee (02/06/17) – Mark it down as 2-for-2 for Cory Hedgecock in 2017. The pilot of the Cushman #23 Eagle Racing Engines/ Rocket Chassis Crate Late Model charged to the $2,500 triumph at East Alabama Motor Speedway on Saturday afternoon.
On Saturday Cory Hedgecock entered the NeSmith RockAuto.com Winter Shootout sanctioned event at East Alabama Motor Speedway (Phenix City, Alabama), trying to capture his second win in as many starts on the 2017 campaign.
With 22 Crate Late Models registered for the 3rd annual Groundhog Classic, Hedgecock failed to lock his spot into the show via qualifying after recording the 9th-fastest time in the session. Storming to a consolation win, Cory earned the 7th-starting position for the main event. Taking only six laps to get to the front, Cory Hedgecock wheeled his Cushman #23 Rocket Chassis to its second victory of the season, topping Chase Edge, Ashton Winger, Montana Dudley, and Forrest Trent at the finish line.
“We got a little behind there in qualifying, but we had an absolute rocket ship in the feature, so it didn’t take long at all to get to the front,” Hedgecock said with a smile. “I just want to thank all of my sponsors, team, and fans for their support. This is exactly how you hope to start a season, so hopefully these first two wins of the year are the first of many to come!”
The next scheduled event for the team will be on February 18 at Winchester Speedway (Winchester, Tennessee), where Cory will enter his first Super Late Model event of the season. The $3,000-to-win Super Late Model program will be held as a part of the annual Winterfest event at the facility. For more information on the program, please visit www.WinchesterSpeedway.net .
