Logan Roberson Enjoys Strong Speedweeks Swing

Waynesboro, Virginia (02/06/17) – 19-year-old Logan Roberson recently completed a two-week swing through the Sunshine State, where he competed in six Crate Late Model events.

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 following night in a field of 38 cars, Roberson landed a runner-up finish behind Mike Whitener in his heat race, locking his position into the main. Competing in the Top 10 throughout the feature, Logan ultimately registered an 8th-place finish in the 35-lapper.

For the final night of the 41st annual Winternationals, Roberson had already locked himself into the Top 6 based off his solid performances the previous nights. Receiving the 5th-starting position for the $3,000-to-win feature after the redraw, Logan captured his third Top 10 finish of the weekend. He streaked across the finish line in the 10th- position in the 50-lap affair.

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 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.

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!”

Wheatland, Missouri (February 4, 2017) - Full speed ahead is the best way to describe the racing plans for Griswold, Iowa's JC Wyman. Having completed his second full year with the Lucas Oil MLRA in 2016, Wyman is preparing another assault on the tour which brings together many of the top drivers in the Midwest.

"I really enjoy running with the Lucas Oil MLRA," commented Wyman. "All the people that make it up are terrific. The staff, other drivers and crew are really special. It takes a lot of time and money to run the entire schedule, but there is no other tour I'd rather follow."

The team will have the services of a brand new Black Diamond Chassis when the season begins at I-80 Speedway. Also in the arsenal is a pair of fresh engines. They plan to race a lot in the coming season, so they will also have a steel motor in their original Black Diamond to run shows closer to home.

"I want to run a minimum of 50 times this season," Wyman elaborated. "We are keeping our old car so we can run the Malvern Bank (formerly SLMR) Late Model Series every chance we get."

Looking back to 2016, Wyman had a really memorable moment. Friday, September 2, they unloaded at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, for what was the first of their three stop racing weekend. In the main event, Wyman took control early and blasted through lapped traffic on the way to his first ever win in Lucas Oil MLRA action.

"To me looking back it was kind of like a fluke win," stated Wyman. "This year I really want to back it up and get another win or two, so I can prove to myself it wasn't. I heard from others how big it was to win with the Lucas Oil MLRA, and as much as we have ran with the tour we know how special it is. What I remember the most is how cool it was for so many drivers, who I race against, to congratulate me after that race. It was really special and unexpected. I appreciated all of them taking a minute to do that."

Wyman certainly used the good run in Kansas City for a shot of late season momentum. Over the final four series races, he had two top-fives and three top-10's.

Like most teams and competitors, Wyman is always looking for additional sponsorship help, and is grateful for those on the team including; Clean Car Center, JD Wyman Motorsports, Wyman Body Works, Malvern Bank, Sorenson Equipment, KWF LLC and Element 102 Graphics.

The first weekend of racing for the Lucas Oil MLRA is just under two months away. It will again originate from the Kosiski family's I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska, March 31 and April 1. The Spring Meltdown will pay $2,000 and $3,000 to win respectively.
