Pierce McCarter Wires Crate Late Model Action at 411 Motor Speedway
Records Second Win of 2021 Campaign
GATLINBURG, Tenn. (10/26/21) – Pierce McCarter wired the Crate Late Model competition on Saturday night at 411 Motor Speedway to pick up the $1,000 victory in his Jim Beeman Lumber / McCarter Brothers Racing No. 71 Tennessee Homemade Wines/ Parkway Liquor Store / Mastersbilt Race Cars / Phantom Racing Engine Crate Late Model.
The triumph marked his second of the season.
“We won right out of the gate back in January to start the year but since then luck hasn’t been our side, but we put it altogether on Saturday night at 411 Motor Speedway. My team gave me a great car, and I got the job done,” Pierce McCarter noted. “We’re going back to 411 Motor Speedway looking for another win this coming Saturday, and hopefully we can repeat.”
On Saturday evening, Pierce McCarter entered his Beeman Lumber No. 71 Late Model into battle at 411 Motor Speedway (Seymour, Tenn.) for the regular night of racing. After topping the charts in time trials,
McCarter won by more than a six-second margin in the feature event to register his second win of the season. He took the checkers ahead of Jason Cardwell, William Blankenship, Bradley Lewelling, and Josh Collins.
Earlier in the week, Mack McCarter visited Volunteer Speedway (Bulls Gap, Tenn.) on Wednesday evening to compete in the seventh round of the Castrol FloRacing Night in America mini-series. With 28 Late Models entered, McCarter clocked in third fastest overall before placing second in his heat race.
Earning the sixth-starting position for the $10,000-to-win A-Main, Mack was running in the Top 5 against a star-studded field before mechanical issues sidelined him on the 15th circuit of the 40 lapper.

Drake Troutman Bests Bedford for 20th Victory of 2021
Drydene World Short Track Championship at Charlotte Up Next
HYNDMAN, Pa. (10/27/21) – Drake Troutman stormed to his 20th victory of the 2021 season on Saturday night with a winning performance in his Smith Transport / RFI Resources No. 7 MB Customs Race Car / Lasalle Racing Engine Modified at Bedford Speedway.
“We had a good weekend at Bedford. In the Modified I started first in the heat race and won, and then started first in the feature and won with an amazing race with Mike Altobelli Jr.! We won our Super Late Model B-Main, which gave us the 20th-starting spot for the feature. I wasn’t going anywhere, so I pulled in early to save the laps on my engine. We had a great car, we just got behind early in the weekend,” Troutman shared. I’m glad to have picked up another win to put us up to win #20 on the season! Can’t thank all my sponsors, crew, family, and supporters enough for everything that they do for me!”
Drake Troutman invaded Bedford Speedway (Bedford, Pa.) on Friday afternoon to pull double duty in both the Super Late Model and Modified ranks in the fourth annual Keystone Cup. Drawing 43 Late Models for the two-day event, Troutman recorded the 11th-fastest time in his qualifying group before placing 11th in his preliminary feature.
Transferring into the B-Main on Saturday, Drake streaked to a 10-lap consolation victory, which positioned him 20th on the starting grid for the $25,000-to-win Keystone Cup. He was credited with a 23rd-place outing after pulling off early to save his equipment.
After storming to a convincing victory in his Modified heat race on Friday, Troutman turned back challenges from a hard-charging Mike Altobelli Jr. in the feature on Saturday to capture his 20th win of the season, which was worth $2,000. He took the checkers ahead of Altobelli, Jerry Foster, Beau Aikey, and Donnie Farlling.

Hagar Earns Top Five During Short Track Nationals for Second Straight Season
Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 27, 2021) - Derek Hagar posted a pair of top-five finishes last weekend during the 34th annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires at I-30 Speedway.
Hagar kicked off the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour action on Friday when he timed in second quickest in his group. A run from third to win a heat race advanced Hagar into the feature redraw.
"It was a different format that was fun," he said. "The group qualifying didn't waste any time for the show and put a new twist on things. You didn't have a bad pill draw ruining your night. You could still qualify, get in the heat race inversion and get some good points to lead you into the feature. We were lucky enough to qualify second in our group. We won our heat race and drew the No. 3 for the feature. Nobody drew the No. 2 so that put me starting second in the feature."
Hagar stayed within striking distance of the leader throughout the first half of the 20-lap race before pouncing in traffic. He took the lead on Lap 12 and held the point for a trio of laps before Jordon Mallett regained the top spot. Hagar settled for second place, which earned a lock-in position into Saturday's dash.
"We had a heck of a race with Jordon," he said. "I got by him just after halfway as he was being patient with lapped cars. I was able to move around him in the middle where they were throwing the moisture up. It worked out, but then I tried to get around a lapped car a couple of laps later and Jordon was able to get under me. I got back by him with a couple of laps to go and we had a lapped car spin in front of both of us. I went high and Jordon was low, which allowed him to beat me off the corner.
"It was awesome to see Jordon and his family get their first ASCS National Tour win. That's something they'll never forget, especially on that big of a stage like the Short Track Nationals."
The revenge dash format on Saturday yielded the back row for Hagar, who finished fifth after being handed the No. 5 to line up fifth. That gave him the fifth starting position in the 41-lap main event.
"Once we came in from the dash we changed the gear and some setup stuff for the feature," he said. "The race was around the bottom, follow the leader until the track blew off. It really didn't get racy until five or six laps to go. I got up to fourth and was trying to go around (Sam) Hafertepe Jr. In hindsight I should have followed him and tried to get under him instead of going around him, which let (J.J.) Hickle get by me. We had a fourth-place car and at one point we were all there under a blanket as (Blake) Hahn and Jordon were battling for the lead. It wasn't the finish we wanted, but you can't hang your head running in the top five at the Short Track Nationals."
The fifth-place result marked his second straight season with a top five during the Short Track Nationals finale and third in a row with a top 10.
