Riley Hickman Hustles to First Win of 2019
Southern All Star Doubleheader Planned

Cleveland, Tennessee (04/22/19) – Mother Nature threw Riley Hickman a curveball, and he turned it into his first win of 2019. After seeing his original plans washed away by Mother Nature, the Tennessee racer was asked to drive the Powell Motorsports No. R1 Andy Picklesimer Racing/ Longhorn Race Car/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model. Hickman turned the opportunity into a feature win at Boyd’s Speedway.

“I had planned to run the Southern All Star event at Thunderhill Raceway Park, but rain forced them to postpone it,” Hickman recounted. “After the cancellation Jim Powell and Andy Picklesimer reached out to me and asked if I wanted to drive their car at Boyds Speedway. They even put some tape on the car to change the number from P1 to R1.

“Those guys gave me a great car, and I was able to get to the lead early and then the win. I greatly appreciate their generosity, and it was really cool to get them a win.”

After Mother Nature wiped out the Southern All Star Series sanctioned event at Thunderhill Raceway (Summertown, Tennessee), Riley Hickman traveled to Boyd’s Speedway (Ringgold, Georgia) on Saturday night, where he was piloting the Powell Motorsports No. 1R Super Late Model entry. Laying down the second-fastest time overall in qualifying behind Cruz Skinner, Hickman earned the second-starting position for the A-Main.

Logan Roberson Pockets $3,225 Payday at Winchester
Tops Winchester Speedway Battle of the Bay Speedweek Finale

Waynesboro, Virginia (04/22/19) –
Logan Roberson overcame a thrilling battle with Max Blair to win Saturday night’s Rush Late Model Touring Series, Battle of the Bay Speedweek finale at Winchester Speedway. He pocketed more than $3,000 for his efforts behind the wheel of his Wynbridge Inc. No. 17 BTS Towing Service/ XR1 Rocket Chassis Crate Late Model.

The win was his fourth of the season, and with the finish he also secured a runner-up finish in the Speedweek points.

"We had something in our playbook early in the race as we pursued Ross Robinson," Roberson commented. "My dad was signaling me to slow down and wait for lapped traffic to hopefully get him. He (Robinson) was very good. I hated to see that bad break for him, but we'll take it any way possible. Then Max (Blair) was really good there late in the race, and he got by us, but I was thankfully able to race back around him the next lap.

“We've had a great season so far. We struggled the first two nights of the Battle of the Bay and wasn't as good as I wanted to be, but we came home and took the win in the finale. It feels good to win here for me and my family. It's awesome."

On Wednesday night Logan Roberson traveled to Delaware International Speedway (Delmar, Delaware), where he was kicking off the Battle of the Bay Speedweeks. With a stout field of 53 RUSH Dirt Late Model Series entries on hand, Logan secured his spot into the opening night feature with a runner-up finish in his heat race behind Ross Robinson. Rolling off 11th, Roberson passed seven cars to reel in a fourth-place finish behind Max Blair, Ross Robinson, and Amanda Whaley with Dillon Brown coming in fifth.

The following night at Georgetown Speedway (Georgetown, Delaware) for the Mark Williams Memorial, Roberson charged to a runner-up finish in his heat race behind Dillon Brown. With $3,000 on the line in the feature, Logan gained two spots in the 30-lapper to finish fifth behind Max Blair, Ross Robinson, Dale Hollidge, and Dillon Brown.

The third round of the Battle of the Bay at Potomac Speedway (Budds Creek, Maryland) fell victim to rain.

Wrapping up the Battle of the Bay on Saturday, Roberson was one of 44 cars registered at Winchester Speedway (Winchester, Virginia). After laying down the fastest time in qualifying, Roberson followed up a heat race victory with a second-place finish in the Dash. Earning the outside-front-row starting position for the A-Main, Logan inherited the lead on lap-20 of the feature after the leader suffered a broken driveshaft.

Building more than a two second lead in the remaining ten circuits, Logan Roberson overcame a battle with Max Blair to claim the victory. Blair, Jeremy Wonderling, Charlie Sandercock, and Matt Hill completed the Top-5 finishers in the 30-lapper. He pocketed a $3,225 payday for his fourth win of the season.

Starks Ready to Return to Knoxville Raceway Following Lessons Learned During Opener

Inside Line Promotions - KNXOVILLE, Iowa (April 22, 2019) - Trey Starks is optimistic that Gobrecht Motorsports will take its biggest leap between the first and second races of the season at Knoxville Raceway.

The team tackled the season opener at the half-mile oval last Saturday and struggled with speed.

"There were a lot of cars that showed up," Starks said. "It was one of their best openers in a couple of years I think. For our first night out we had our struggles, but going to a new track is something you'll run into. We didn't have the speed we wanted to throughout the night. However, we made the feature and got to run some laps, which is key for progressing on this track with the new personnel we have."

Starks qualified 18th quickest to open the night.

"We need to qualify better," he said. "Usually qualifying is our strong suit, but we were just a little bit off. If we work on that I think our nights will go better."

A fifth-place run in a heat race locked Starks into the main event. He capped the night by placing 21st in the A Main.

"We needed a little more to be competitive," he said. "We need to tune some things up a bit, but we know where the improvements need to be made and I think we know how to do it so that's relieving knowing that.

"Being in Pennsylvania the last couple of years the tracks are a lot different. There isn't anything quite like Knoxville so we need to get our notebook built up and that will come with time."

Starks and the team will return to Knoxville Raceway this Saturday.


April 20 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 18; Heat race: 5 (2); Feature: 21 (19).


2 races, 0 wins, 1 top five, 1 top 10, 1 top 15, 1 top 20
