Crocker Breaks Through

Crocker Breaks Through in SAS Modified

By Mark Chisum

Donald Crocker has chased Korey Ruble all year in the big Modified races at South Alabama Speedway. He finally caught a break Saturday when Ruble experienced mechanical issues requiring a late pit stop. Crocker took over the point and led the final thirteen laps to take his first win of the year.

Ruble led the way in qualifying and immediately jumped in front of outside starter Crocker. While Crocker was able to stay close to Ruble, he could never make a move for the front spot. Eventually, Ruble began to put a little space between Crocker and himself. However, as the race wore on, smoke began to trail from Ruble’s car. With the smoke getting heavier, and lap times slowing down, track officials decided to throw a yellow to check the track, and Ruble’s car. A broken oil line was found, and Ruble was sent to the pits for repairs.

Crocker took over the point, but Ruble wasn’t done. Track rules allow for crews to work on cars under red flag conditions, so while the track was being cleaned up, Ruble’s crew was making the repairs. He returned as final touches were being made, but had to go to the end of the pack. While Crocker sped away from the field, Ruble sliced through the field. Ruble got some help when the yellow flew again on lap 69. Crocker led with Joe Aramendia second and Ruble third. While Ruble was fighting to get around Aramendia, Crocker was easing away. Ruble got past Aramendia with five laps to go, but Corcker led him to the checkers by 1.5 seconds. Aramendia was third, followed by Donnie Hamrac, and Adam Crawford.

Gary Davis took the lead on lap six and went on to win the Street Stock feature. Todd Valdez took the lead on the first lap and led until Davis took over. Davis quickly came from the sixth starting spot, moving into second on lap three. Jake Daniels moved into second on lap 11 and chased Davis the rest of the way. Valdez slipped back to third at the finish. Daniel Davis and Billy Maxie rounded out the top five.

Charles Gardner took another win in another exciting Roadrunner feature. Jason Kendrick took the lead from the pole with Gardner following. Gardner was able to work his way under Kendrick to grab the lead on lap four. As the crossed under the flagstand, Gardner and Kendrick got together with both hitting and sliding down the wall. Somehow, both were able to continue, although they had to restart in the rear. Danny Monaghan gained the top spot, but Jason Singletary took the point one lap later. Monaghan fought back to regain the lead on lap 12. Meanwhile, Gardner and Kendrick were hustling their way back through the pack. Gardner moved inside of Monaghan on lap 17 to take back the lead. It took Kendrick four more laps to move into second. With the race going green the final 32 laps, Gardner was able to ease away from Kendrick to take the win. Tim Peters experienced problems in qualifying and had to start on the rear of the field but came back to finish third. Singletary was fourth with Monaghan fifth.

Tim Richardson held off a late challenge from Joseph Chandler to win the Coyote Feature. Wesley Goleman led the first two laps before Richardson took over. Over the next few laps, while, Chandler was working his way from the back, Richardson built a big lead over the field. The race went green all 25 laps, which was the advantage Richardson needed. Chandler was able to cut into Richardson’s lead, but ran out of laps. Goleman was third, followed by Hunter Worley and Stephen Magwood.

The CupLite Feature outcome was decided in post race tech. Shep Lucas took the lead on lap four and held off Jack Whittle to take the apparent win. However, in post race inspection, a carburetor spacer plate was found on Lucas’s engine, a violation of series’ rule, and he was disqualified, giving the win to Whittle. Randy Henderson was awarded second place with Charlie Hercus and Keith Hutchinson.

Justin Beck picked up his first win in the Mini Sportsman Feature. Adam Salter led the first three laps with Kim Pearson taking over on the fourth circuit. Pearson led the next four laps until Beck got past on lap eight. Beck had to hold off Adam Sowell before securing his first winner’s trophy. Pearson was third in the final rundown. Fourth and fifth went to Dylan Wolfe and Benjamin Henderson.

Action continues at South Alabama Speedway on September 10 with Feature races in all seven local classes. For more information, contact the track at (334) 565-3539(334) 565-3539, or visit the track’s web site at www.southalabamaspeedway.com.

Anderson Takes Super Series Win

Anderson Takes Super Series Win at South Alabama

By Mark Chisum

Augie Grill is a household name in Southern racing circles. The Alabama driver is a star in the South, and also a threat to win when he shows up at a track. Cole Anderson is a newcomer on the Southern racing scene. The Northfield, Minnesota driver hooked up with Florida car owner Anthony Campi in late 2015, and is beginning to make some noise in the South. Two thirds of the way through the Southern Super Series Diamondback 125 at South Alabama Speedway, it came down to a battle between the veteran and the newcomer. Anderson was up to the task, taking the lead from Grill with 13 laps to go to take his second straight series win.

Rains knocked out qualifying, so the field was set by points, putting Donnie Wilson and Chris Davidson on the front row. Davidson got the jump from the outside to grab the lead. Davidson led the first 18 laps before Grill took control. Davidson began to slip through the as Chandler Smith, Anderson, and Wilson got by. Anderson moved into second on lap 37AT the halfway point, Grill led Anderson, Smith, Wilson, and Stephen Nasse.

Grill continued to until the race’s only caution on lap 85. On the restart, Anderson got outside of Grill, outrunning him to the line to lead laps 86 and 87. Grill fought back to lead lap 88, with Anderson leading the next four. Grill, on the inside, wore Anderson down, and Anderson fell in behind Grill. Grill led the next 19 laps, but on lap 113, Anderson moved inside of the leader heading into turn one, taking the lead exiting turn two. Anderson led the final 13 laps to take the win. Grill was second, followed by Nasse, Kenzie Ruston, and Kyle Plott.

Corbitt Moseley continued his winning ways in the Super Stock Feature. Moseley had to come from the back twice to secure his latest win. Starting in the rear, Moseley made his way through the field, but spun trying to take the lead on lap eight. Restarting on the rear, Moseley sliced through the field quickly, taking the lead from his son, Brian on lap 19. Corbitt Moseley led the final laps with the race ending under red conditions. Brian Moseley was second, followed by Cameron Henderson, Jeremy Burchfield, and Ricky Harrelson.

Gary Davis returned to Victory Lane in the Street Stock Feature. Davis led all 25 laps and was never challenged in the race. Jake Daniels came from fifth starting spot to finish second. Daniel Davis was third with Travis Slawson fourth and Billy Maxie fifth.

Charles Gardner took the lead on lap nine and went on to win the Roadrunner Feature. Tim Peters led the first eight laps before Gardner took over the lead. Jason Kendrick came from the tenth starting spot to finish second, but couldn’t erase Gardner’s lead. John Singletary finished third, followed by Peters and Danny Monaghan.

Joseph Chandler took the lead on the second lap and went on to win the Coyote Feature. Wesley Goleman led the first lap before Chandler took control. Hunter Worley came from the eighth starting spot to finish second. Goleman was third at the end of the race. Michael Smith and Bobby Moak rounded out the top five.

In the Mini Sportsman Feature, Dylan Wolfe held off a late charge ny Benjamin Henderson to take the win. Wolfe led the first three laps before Terry Brown took the lead for two laps. Henderson took the lead on lap six and led until Wolfe regained the lead on lap 14. Henderson followed Wolfe until the final turn when he dove inside exiting the turn. Henderson’s charge came up a foot short at the line. Jamie Ater was third, followed by Adam Sowell and Kim Pierson.

Action continues at South Alabama Speedway on July 23 with a 75 lap Modified Feature, plus feature races for Super Stock, Street Stock, Roadrunner, Coyote, and Mini Sportsman.

Roderick, Ruble Win Crossover Specials at South Alabama

By Mark Chisum

Casey Roderick and Korey Ruble won the big races during the 4th Annual Crossover Night at South Alabama Speedway. The night, a benefit night for Crossover Ministry in Opp, saw a great crowd, great racing action, but most importantly, a great amount of food items, toiletries, and household items headed to Crossover Ministry.

Roderick led the way in qualifying for the 75-lap Pro Late Model race with a time of 15.342, but Justin South got the jump from the outside pole to grab the lead heading into turn one. South was able to hold Roderick off for eight laps before Roderick was able to move inside of South to grab the lead. Once out front, Roderick was able to maintain a four car length lead over South. The race’s only caution came on lap 33, bringing the field back to Roderick’s bumper. When the green flew, Roderick again pulled out to his comfortable lead, which he maintained until one to go when a car spun in turn four, blocking the track. That set up a green, white, checkered finish. Roderick got a good restart and headed to the checkers. Will Martin made a late race charge, getting past Zack Knowles and South to finish second. South was third, followed by Bobby Knox, Jr. and Knowles.

Korey Ruble continued his domination of the Modified class, taking the lead on lap 50 and going on to win the 75-lap feature.  Donnie Hamrac set fast timer it qualifying, turning the 4/10th mile oval in 15.866 seconds. Ruble grabbed the lead from the outside pole, but Donald Crocker took the lead on lap five and led the next 46 laps before Ruble regaining the lead with 25 laps to go. The race was stopped with nine laps to go when Martin Lilland, Jr. blew an engine. When the race went back green, Ruble pulled away from the field. Hamrac worked his way around Crocker, who began to slide back through the field. Adam Crawford and Ryan Redmon also got past Crocker to finish third and fourth.

In the Super Stock race, Corbitt Mosely took the lead opn lap eight and went on to take the win. Jamie Ater led the field to the green and led the first seven laps before Mosely took the point. Mosely had to survive two late cautions, but wasn’t really threatened for the lead. Darrell Cawley, Jr. was second, flowed by Tim Peters, Jody Davis, and Brian Mosely.

Gary Davis picked up another win in the Street Stock Feature. Dwayne Maloy led the first two laps with Jake Daniels leading the next two. Davis took the lead on lap five and led the rest of the way to take the win. The race was slowed numerous times by cautions, but Davis was able to get good restarts and hold onto his lead. Todd Valdez finished second. Billy Maxie had a rough race, getting involved in a couple of caution, but came back to finish third. Steven Cawly was fourth with Maloy taking fifth.

Jason Kendrick picked up the win in the roadrunner Feature. David Davis led the first four laps before Charles Gardner charged into the lead. Gardner was holding a comfortable lead over Jason Singletary when e slowed and came to a stop with rear end problems. Singletary took over the lead , but only led one lap before Kendrick took over on lap 18. Kendrick led the final eight laps to take the win. Singletary finished second with Danny Monaghan third. Davis and Michael Hurst rounded out the top five.

Joseph Chandler led flag to flag to take the win in the Coyote Feature. Wesley Goleman chased Chandler all race, but couldn’t catch the leader. Tim Richardson was third, followed by Ralph Sanders and Danny Thompson.

Dylan Northey took the lead on the third circuit to win the CupLite Feature. Cory Tillman led the first two laps before Northey took control. Charlie Hercus tried to catch the leader, but could never mount a challenge.  Tillman finished third with Kenny Parker fourth and Karl Williams fifth.

In the Mini Sportsman Feature, Benjamin Henderson led all 20 laps to take the win. Dylan Wolfe crossed the line second, but failed post race inspection and was disqualified. Keith Henderson moved into the second spot, followed by Terry Brown, Jack Lisenby, and Adam Sowell.

Ruble Continues Hot Streak in SAS Mods

Ruble Continues Hot Streak in SAS Mods

By Mark Chisum

Not even a Saturday afternoon deluge at South Alabama Speedway could cool off Korey Ruble. Ruble picked up his second long distance Modified Feature, taking the lead on lap 14 and speeding away from the field.

Donald Crocker set fast time in qualifying with a time of 15.845, just .015 seconds faster than Donnie Hamrac. Ruble was third at 15.978. Crocker took the lead as the green dropped with Ruble following him past Hamrac. Crocker was able to hold Ruble off for 13 laps, but Ruble moved inside on the fourteenth circuit to take the lead. Once out front, Ruble stretched his lead over Crocker until the race slowed with a competition caution on lap 60.

The planned yellow period was scheduled for ten minutes and allowed crews to make changes to the cars, with the exception of tires. Whatever changes were made had little effect as Ruble pulled away from Crocker when the race went back green. The final forty laps were all green and Ruble was never challenged, taking the checkers 1.21 seconds ahead of Crocker. Hamrac was third with Ryan Redmon fourth and Adam Crawford fifth.

Travis Slawson led flag to flag to win the Street Stock Feature. Chris Slater and Gary Davis stayed right on Slawson’s bumper, but had their own battle going on. That battle kept the pressure off Slawson and allowed him to run his line and maintain his advantage. Davis was able to get inside of Salter with two laps to go, but didn’t have enough laps to challenge Slawson. Slawson led Davis and Salter to the line, followed by Jake Daniels and Daniel Davis.

Once again, the Roadrunner class stole the spotlight. Eight lead changes highlighted the 35 – lap feature. Mike Wolfe led the field to the green flag, but by the time the field came back around to complete the first lap, Joey Deaton was out front. Deaton held off John Singletary for five laps before Singletary was able to work his way past to take the lead on lap six. Singletary held the lead for three laps, but Deaton came back to reclaim the top spot after a lap nine restart. Singletary lost a couple of more spots as Michael Hurst and Tim Peters were able to slide by. Meanwhile, Gardner, who started twelfth, was making his way forward. Hurst was able to get inside of Deaton on lap eleven to take the lead, with Peters and Singletary following. Gardner followed two laps later. Gardner got around Peters on lap 15, and the fight was on. Singletary got inside of Hurst on lap 22, taking Gardner with him. Gardner beat Singletary to the line to lead lap 25, but Singletary came back to lead the next two. Gardner took the lead for good on lap 28, but Singletary stayed glued to his bumper the rest of the way, but couldn’t take back the spot. Hurst held on to third, followed by Deaton and Jason Kendrick.

Wesley Goleman led all 25 laps to win the Coyote Feature. Tim Richardson came from the tenth starting spot to finish second. Hunter Worley crossed the line third, followed by Michael Smith and Anthony Johnson. However, in post race inspection, Worley and Smith were disqualified for having too much front end camber Their “dq” moved Johnson to third, James Harris to fourth, and Timothy Chandler into the top five.

In the CupLite Feature, Jack Whittle took the lead on lap 16 and went on to take the win. Charlie Hercus grabbed the lead from the outside pole and led the first fifteen laps. ON lap 16, Whittle made his move around Hercus to grab the front spot. From there, Whittle eased away from the field to take another win. Hercus held on to second. Karl Williams was third, followed by Carroll Williams and Sandy McVay.

Dylan Wolfe grabbed the lead at the half way point and went on to win the Mini Sportsman Feature. Benjamin Henderson led the first 10 laps. Wolfe, started tenth but sped through the field and took over the lead on the eleventh lap. Terry Brown came through the field to finish second, but ran out of laps before he could challenge Wolfe. Eli Bell was third, Henderson fourth, and Kim Pearson fifth.

South Alabama Speedway will be closed Memorial Day Weekend. The Kinston oval will be back in action on June 4 with the 4th Annual Crossover Night.

Ruble Wins Modified Special at South Alabama

 

Ruble Wins Modified Special at South Alabama

By Mark Chisum

South Alabama Speedway is having several high paying Modified races in 2016. The first was Saturday night, and Korey Ruble lefty little doubt who was the class of the field. Ruble qualified fourth fastest in the field, but once the race took green, Ruble eased his way to the front, and ended up running away from the field to take the win.

Donald Crocker set fast time and took the lead from the pole. Second fastest Donnie Hamrac followed Crocker to start with, but by lap nine, had behind Ruble’s pace. Ruble followed Crocker until lap 23, moving inside the leader to take the point. At that point, the battle for the winner’s trophy was over with. Crocker followed Ruble until retiring to the pits on lap 41, leaving Hamrac to deal with Ruble. Hamrac didn’t have anything for the speedy leader, however, and Ruble pulled away to take the win by 3.195 seconds. Ryan Redmon came back from a lap 21 spin to finish third. Martin Lilland, Jr. was fourth with Chris Cotto fifth.

Jamie Ater took the lead on lap four and went on to win the Super Stock Feature. Ken Pettis led the first three laps, before Ater took control. Gary Davis came from the fifth staring spot to finish second. Brian Mosely crossed the line third, but was too low in post race inspection and was disqualified. Mosely’s “dq” moved JR Skipper to third. Tim Peters was fourth with Jody Davis fifth.

Davis finished one spot better in the Street Stock Feature, taking his third straight win in the class. Daniel Davis led the field to the green and led the first 17 laps, before Davis got inside to take the lead. Davis led the final eight circuits to take the win. Travis Slawson and Jake Daniels worked their way past Davis to take second and third. Dwayne Maloy rounded out the top five.

The night’s most exciting race was once again the Roadrunner Feature. It came down to a final turn scramble that ended with the third place car taking the win. David Davis led the first three laps before Danny Monaghan took the lead for the next three laps. Charles Gardner took the lead on lap seven. Jason Kendrick moved into the second spot one lap later. Tim Peters joined battle up front on lap 13, moving past Monaghan into third. Gardner was able to maintain a car length lead over Kendrick, but two late cautions erased that small advantage. The final caution set up a green, white, checkered finish. Kendrick was all over Gardner in every turn, with Peters right behind. As the trio came through the final turn, Kendrick got into Gardner, turning the leader. Kendrick continued to take the checkers with Peters following. However, track rules state that if you spin the leader on the final lap, you are also penalized and sent to the rear of the lead lap cars. The ruling gave the win to Peters. Monaghan was second, followed by Michael Hurst, Ricky Strickland, and David Davis.

On the restart, Wesley Goleman got by Richardson to take the lead. Goleman led the next six laps before Chandler took control.

Dylan Northey grabbed the lead from the outside pole and led the first11 laps before spinning and bringing out the caution. Karl Williams took the lead for one lap before Mack zipped by on lap 13.
