Cory Hedgecock Scores Scott Sexton Memorial Triumph
Set for Crate Racin’ USA Weekend Doubleheader

LOUDON, Tenn. (06/02/23) – Cory Hedgecock took the lead on lap 8 on Monday evening at 411 Motor Speedway and never looked back en route to Victory Lane with his W.E. Hardscapes & Masonry / Noble Knights Construction Services / No. 23 Currin Construction / BMF Race Car / Eagle Racing Engine Super Late Model.

His eighth win of the year was worth $5,052 in Valvoline Iron-Man Late Model Series competition and tied him atop the series’ all-time win list.

“We got to the lead early (at 411 Motor Speedway), and then got the job done. Decided to give Clarksville (Speedway) a shot on Tuesday night. We had a good car but needed long runs, and the cautions kept slowing my progression. Still finished second to Mikey (Marlar), and I’m definitely not hanging my head for that. Overall, we had a pretty good holiday weekend of racing,” Hedgecock said. “We’re going to do a little crate racing this weekend before getting back in the Super Late Model next week at the Dream (Eldora Speedway and then Kokomo (Speedway).”

Cory Hedgecock invaded I-75 Raceway (Sweetwater, Tenn.) last Friday afternoon to kick off his Memorial Day weekend with the Schaeffer’s Spring Nationals.

With 34 Late Models entered, Hedgecock locked his spot into the opener with a consolation victory after missing the mark in time trials. With $7,553 on the line, Cory advanced forward seven spots in the 40-lapper to finish fourth. He chased race-long pacesetter Carson Ferguson, Ross Bailes, and Dale McDowell to the checkers with Garrett Smith in fifth.

In a field of 34 Schaeffer’s Spring Nationals entries on Saturday at North Georgia Speedway (Chatsworth, Ga.) for the Biddle Ridley Memorial, Cory’s fifth-to-third run in his heat race positioned him on the fifth row for the $10,053-to-win A-Main. Improving two spots in the 53-lap affair, Hedgecock notched a seventh-place finish.

For the 11th annual Scott Sexton Memorial on Monday at 411 Motor Speedway (Seymour, Tenn.), Cory raced his way into the Valvoline Iron-Man Southern Series sanctioned feature with the fastest lap amongst a field of 21 cars. Sliding ahead of front-row starter Ricky Weiss on the eighth circuit, Hedgecock soared to his eighth win of the season and 10th career Iron-Man triumph. He earned a $5,052 payday ahead of Weiss, Donald McIntosh, Mack McCarter, and Jensen Ford.

The Memorial Day weekend concluded for Hedgecock on Tuesday with a visit to Clarksville Speedway (Clarksville, Tenn.) for the Ultimate Heart of America Series sanctioned contest. Earning the third-starting position for the $10,000-to-win via a heat race victory, Cory gained one spot to register a second-place finish, chasing race-long leader Mike Marlar to the checkers.

Mike Marlar Conquers Clarksville’s $10,000 HoA Visit
Dirt Late Model Dream XXIX Up Next

WINFIELD, Tenn. (06/02/23) –
Mike Marlar collected his fourth victory of the 2023 season on Tuesday evening with a $10,000 Ultimate Heart of America Series victory at Tennessee’s Clarksville Speedway aboard his Delk Equipment Sales / Petroff Towing No. 157 Can-Am Auto Salvage / Mesilla Valley Transportation / Longhorn Race Car / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.

“The car was good there on Tuesday night at Clarksville (Speedway) and the cautions played out nice for me. I hadn’t been there in several years, so it was nice to get the win,” Marlar said in Victory Lane. “We had a pretty good car on Wednesday night in the Castrol (FloRacing Night in America) race at Florence Speedway, but we had a mechanical failure that knocked us out of the race. Just one of those deals. We’re regrouping now and getting ready for the Dream at Eldora Speedway next week. Thank you as always to everyone who supports our race team.”

Kicking off the three-day Memorial Day weekend with the World of Outlaws (WoO) Case Late Model Series, Mike Marlar traveled to Sharon Speedway (Hartford, Ohio) on Thursday evening for the opening round of the Battle at the Border.

With 40 cars entered, Mike laid down a 16.866-second lap in time trials to capture the Simpson Quick Time Award before placing first in his heat. Rolling off third for Thursday’s $6,000-to-win prelim, Marlar made a late charge in the 25-lapper to record a third-place finish. He chased race-long pacesetter Chris Madden and Bobby Pierce to the checkers.

For another round of prelims on Friday, Marlar followed up the sixth-fastest lap in his time trial group with a second-place finish in his heat. With $6,000 on the line in the feature, Mike steered forward four positions to finish fourth.

On Saturday, Mike locked his spot into the $25,000-to-win Border at the Battle finale with a runner-up run in his heat race. Working his way into the Top 5 late, Marlar grabbed fifth from Gregg Satterlee on lap 43 and went onto place fifth. He followed Chris Madden, Tanner English, Bobby Pierce, and Brian Shirley across the line.

Tuesday found the team competing with the Ultimate Heart of America Series at Clarksville (Tenn.) Speedway. Pulling off a clean sweep of the program, Marlar followed up the fast time honors with a heat and feature victory. He led all 50 laps en route to his fourth win of the season and a $10,000 payday.

The busy stretch of racing drew to a close on Wednesday evening at Florence Speedway (Walton, Ky.) with the seventh round of the Castrol FloRacing Night in America campaign. Thirty-two Super Late Models entered the program, and Mike started the night with fast time in his heat race followed by a second-place finish in his heat race. Starting the feature in fifth, a mechanical failure knocked Marlar out of the main event on the 32nd lap while running sixth. He was credited with a 17th-place finish.

Mike is currently eighth in the latest miniseries standings.

The Delk Equipment team will be idle this weekend before invading Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) on June 8 – 10 with the 29th running of the Dirt Late Model Dream.
