Coffman's Patience - Cook's Strength Net Spring Fling Victories... 4/9

Cleveland, TN (4/9/16) --- On a cold night, where temperatures kept most racefans at home away from the track, Cleveland Speedway didn't have any trouble heating up some fantastic racing action, presenting the annual "Late Model Spring Fling". Twenty-one Crate Late Models took to the track for the first of two, twin $1,500 to-WIN features. Second fastest overall qualifier and heat # 2 winner Jason Deal of Copperhill, TN jumped into the lead over Fast Qualifier Jerry Coffman at the start and seemed to be in firm control of the 35 lap feature. Coffman, piloting Mike Simmons "A-1 Towing, AAA Service, Chip Vineyard Racing" CVR machine played the patience waiting game and the race came to him when Deal began struggling in the turns with ten to-go. Coffman made the winning pass on Deal who waffled back to fourth on lap 28, strolling easily and unchallenged to the checkers. Andy Pickelsimer of Ooltewah got by Jamie Perry late in the race too earning the runner up nod to Coffman. Behind Deal at the checkers was 2015 Track Champion Ethan Hunter.

In "Spring Fling" race #2 the Super Late Models, "the Tarheel Tiger" Ray Cook of Brasstown, NC showed why and how he knows the way around Cleveland Speedway. Cook in his # 53 "A1 Moving & Storage Co, Pope Construction Co, PRC" Jay Dickens Capital Racecar dominated with strength over Jamie Perry for the entire 35 lapper. Despite being only eight cars Cook, Perry and Booger Brooks put on a stout performance. Jordon Horton and "the Lawman" Mike Tinker rounded out the Top 5 respectfully. In the Topless Sportsman division Jordan Rodabaugh of Soddy Daisy and Justin Winters battled the entire 20 laps. Rodabaugh and Winters would exchange pleasantries after the hard fought side by side close quarters race. Matt Stewart was third behind Winters. Jimmy Smith of Red Bank, TN won the shortened B-Hobby feature. Patrick Henry took his second consecutive Pony/FWD feature race and Jason Lewis won the opposite directed Road Warrior feature. Next race at Cleveland Speedway is April 16th for all classes.


HICKMAN / PERRY SPLIT SHAMROCK DOWN THE MIDDLE

Riley Hickman of Ooltewah, TN and Jamie Perry of Ringgold, GA split the 20th annual ShamRock down the middle of the Twin 40 lap $2,000 to-WIN features. Both racers earning bonus money for winning Boyd's/Cleveland Back to Back pocketed each over $2,000 winning their respective races (Hickman SLM and Perry CRATE). Hickman earned a few hundred more in cash winnings, being a recent UCRA winner at Duck River Raceway Park a week ago. Many racers used the opportunity to race multiple times Saturday night in front of a large crowd of fans. Jason Welshan seemed to be dominant in the CRATE division, but in heat race #2 his right-rear wheel busted sending himself into a violent flip in turn two. Welshan was shaken but able to walk away under his own power. Racing action picks back up at Cleveland Speedway in two weeks on Saturday, April 9th when Super Late Models return to weekly racing action.

THE MONTH OF MADDEN CONCLUDES @ CLEVELAND

CLEVELAND, Tenn. (Nov. 21, 2015) — Chris Madden of Gray Court, S.C., needed a bare minimum of words to make his feelings clear after winning Saturday night’s 77-lap Southern Nationals Bonus Series-sanctioned Gobbler event at Cleveland Speedway.

“It’s just been really amazing,” the 40-year-old Madden said after his continuing his torrid late-season surge since returning from a three-month summer break from racing. “That’s just about all I can say about it.”

The flag-to-flag Gobbler victory worth $10,000 was the latest in a string of success for Madden, who returned from an extended layoff with a new Longhorn Race Car on Sept. 6 and hasn’t looked back. He’s made 15 starts and rung up six wins, 12 top-five and 14 top-10 finishes in just two-and-a-half months of competition.

“I’ve been very blessed to just have the success that I’ve had coming back,” said Madden, whose first-place earnings during his hot streak total $65,000.

Saturday night’s score might have been one of Madden’s most dominant performances. He roared off his outside-pole starting spot to grab the lead from polesitter Dale McDowell of Chickamauga, Ga., at the initial green flag of the feature and never faltered thereafter, controlling the action from start-to-finish on a track that took rubber and developed one primary groove.

McDowell, 49, chased Madden throughout the distance but was unable to offer a serious challenge. The driver of the Team Dillon Racing Warrior settled for a runner-up finish, duplicating his second-place effort to Madden in the Nov. 14 Southern National Bonus Series event at Boyd’s Speedway, the Ringgold, Ga., track that McDowell co-promotes.

Fourth-starter Randy Weaver of Crossville, Tenn., picked off one spot early in the race and followed McDowell the rest of the way to finish third. World of Outlaws Late Model Series regular Chase Junghans of Manhattan, Kan., placed fourth after starting third while Mike Marlar of Winfield, Tenn., improved two spots to finish fifth.

Madden felt fortunate that he was well positioned at the start of the headliner to take advantage of the conditions.

“They tried hard with the racetrack to give us a racing surface to race on,” said Madden, who recorded his third win in the last four Southern Nationals Bonus Series events run over the past six weeks. “The thing just kind of got one-lane there and we was in the right position on the start to get the position. That’s just the way it fell tonight. “But Dale and those guys, you never count ‘em out even though it’s rubbered up and one-lane. You never count those guys out until the
checkered flag falls.”

McDowell acknowledged that the initial green flag was the key to the race, which was slowed by just a single caution flag on lap 62.

“When we redrew (for starting position among heat winners), we may have needed that outside line,” said McDowell, who raced at a track located about 45 minutes northeast of his Georgia home. “The outside was better
tonight when the bottom left.”

Nevertheless, McDowell’s hopes of staying close enough to Madden to seize on any stumble by the leader were hampered by tire wear.

“Right there at the last we lost tire,” McDowell said. “Me and Randy (Weaver) lost a little bit more tire than Chris did. We just slicked our tire and kind of got in line and rode.”

The 46-year-old Weaver, meanwhile, simply found himself behind two strong rivals with little racetrack left to battle them.

“I think we had as good a car as Chris in the race but the racetrack kind of dictated that (third-place finish),” said Weaver, who closed out a satisfying campaign in which he won 12 times in 28 starts. “This time of year you never know what you’re gonna get (with the track surface), but at least we got to race one more time this year.”

Madden was certainly happy to have another chance to extend his hot streak before settling down for the winter.

“We’re gonna try to look for some more races for next weekend,” Madden said with a sly smile.

TRICK & TREAT: SCOGGINS - COFFMAN & WINTERS WIN

Cleveland, TN (10/24/15) --- Trick or Treat for the kids at Cleveland Speedway as Final 4: Race #2 was in store for the fans on a brisk Saturday night. Two of the track Alpha racers picked up win's in their respective classes. Lamar Scoggins and Jerry Coffman dominated the Late Model and Crate features with flag to flag runs. Scoggins in his # 32 "Campbell Insulation Specialist, East TN Auto Outlet, M&S Motors, Chambers Equipment Sales" sponsored GRT bested the nine car field over Tod Hernandez and outside polesitter Matt Steward. "Peebo" Glen Seaton III was fourth with Danny Turner debuting in the Late Models fifth overall. Coffman in the "A-1 Towing, AAA Service Center, New Salem Alignment" 604 GM Performance mahine dominated a seventeen (17) car Crate field after qualifying and heats. Josh Fields (of Tazewell, TN) who contested with Booger Brooks at the start of the feature chased Coffman but was too little too late. Bobby Mayse got by Brooks on a lap 13 restart to finiah third with David Doss fifth.

In the A-Hobby feature Justin Winters of Cleveland put the # A14 "Goode Motorsports, Mayo Racing Components, Chatt Town Radiator family racecar in A-1 Towing Victory Lane for the first time this season. All eyes were on points leader Brandon Stanfield who was racing from the rear to third when he smacked the wall with two to go in the 20 lapper. Behind Winters was Joe Griggs. Jason Brown was third with Jim and John Clark rounding out the Top 5. In the B-Hobby feature Michael Brooks was again dominant Jimmy Smith rallied past Adam Earwood for second with Sam Jones and Adrian Williams rounding out the Top 5. The Road Warriors took to the track with Jeff Bates parking the # K9 in Victory Lane. James Huffman, Mark Johnston, Seth Barbee and Tyler Dixon rounded out the Top 5. An unknown woman (hopefully) was the winner of the Diva's Powder Puff feature driving the # 27. Cleveland Speedway takes next Saturday night (Halloween) off, but returns to action Saturday, November 7th with the UCRA Crate series and all classes.


US LEGENDS
DiRT NATIONALS SUNDAY SHOWDOWN

The 2015 US Legends / INEX "DiRT NATIONALS" presented by Fitzgerald Glider Kit's at Cleveland Speedway is in the record books. A talented group of driver's from as close as Cleveland, Tennessee, and as far as Australia invaded for what would become a four (4) day weekend event with a intervention from Mothernature herself on Saturday. The event purse of $20,000 rallied fifty-two (52) teams from fourteen (14) states in all as well as four International drivers from "Down Under". The Charlotte Motor Speedway based group stated, "we enjoyed this year's event, and are looking forward to seeing all of our participant again next year!" …as they prepare for their next stop, New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

YL/SP recap:
Hicks and Apfelback earned the front row starting spots after the combination of qualifying results from Friday and the heat races earlier on Sunday. Apfelback would take the early lead as the race went green for 30 laps. The first caution flew on lap 2 for an accident that involved Grasyn Cox and Steve Harshbarger hooked together in turn 3. After some more green flag action, Apfelback still led Hicks and Andrew Jochim when on lap 10 the first major accident occurred in turn 1 that included Christopher Clanton, Nate Chitko and Reagan Zimmerman. Both Clanton and Chitko were out of the race while Zimmerman was able to continue on. The halfway point brought out the caution flag for Cameron Sogge’s B-52 in the turn 1 wall. Apfelback was still in control over Hicks, Jochim, Tyson Goudy and Ryan Mech. The final 15 laps saw an intense battle with Apfelback and Hicks for the overall lead of the race. Hicks was unable to make the pass for the win and it was Cody Apfelback who took the overall and Semi-Pro division win. Jochim was able to clear Hicks to finish 2nd in the race and class, while Hicks crossed the line in 3rd overall and the first Young Lion driver.

Masters Recap :
Great North Legends competitor and longtime Legends driver Tim Brockhouse along with Shane Williams would lead the field of 17 Masters drivers to the green flag for their 30 lap main event. The first half would see all green flag action as Brockhouse used his experience to take the early lead. Williams settled in second followed by Dave Comer, Mike Mueller and Dean Travis. The only caution of the race flew on lap 15 for a minor spin. Brockhouse was unchallenged for most of the event and took home the title of 2015 Dirt Nationals Masters Champion. Williams, Comer, Mueller and Nelson Stewart rounded out the top 5 finishers.

Pro Recap :
The final championship feature on the day was the 30 lap Pro event with Justin Comer and John Kringas on row 1 for the start.
Carson Ferguson would go around on the first lap, but continued on after he brought out the first caution. The green action was back on as Kringas and Comer were in a race of their own for the lead. The fierce action was slowed after an accident by Josh Fitzgerald in turn 1 at the halfway point. Kringas still lead Comer, Robert Rawlings and Baiden Heskett. As the leaders were after it hard up front, the action was hot and heavy for the back half of the top 10. Lap 26 saw that battle come to a halt after the #11 of Caleb McDugle went over and on his lid in turn 4. McDugle was okay, and after a brief red flag the field was lined back up for a 4 lap shootout. Under the red flag, second place Comer pulled off track with a mechanical issue and this opened the door for Kringas to take home the Pro feature win to close out Dirt Nationals. Rawlings was second followed by Troy Hoff, Brad Giffen and Zack Dunsmore.

Pro Feature (30 laps): 1. Johnny Kringas (#10) of Homer Glen, IL, 2. Robert Rawlings (#1A) of Canberra, AUST, 3. Troy Hoff (#86) of Flasher, ND, 4. Brad Giffen (#81) of Sydney, AUST, 5.

THE AXE MAN KEVIN GIBSON SMASHES RACE #1 of FINAL 4

Cleveland, TN (9/12/15) --- The first of four “Final 4 Races” are in the books and The AXE MAN Kevin Gibson waited til exactly the rite time to chop up the competition for his first win of the season. The Ringgold, GA racing veteran outdrove eleven (11) other teams Saturday night in order to park the black # M45 “Tennessee Roofing Contrators, Benton Oil Service, Stanley Best Heating & Cooling, A-1 Towing, Ste-Don Farms” GRT racecar in Victory Lane. The double points win also catapulted Gibson outta the bottom two of the Chase for the Dirt Cup Track Championship and unofficially up to fourth in the standings. Second place Craig Burrows was the only car not in fear of being lapped by Gibson in the non-stop 25 lap feature as David Gamble made a late season debut to finish third ahead of Alabama’s D.J. Hayes and rookie Zach Dunsmore.

In the Crate feature Booger Brooks of Chattanooga earned the pole, but it was the “Big Red Machine” Brian Pritchard stepping out into the early lead from the “Cat-Birds Seat”. Brooks driving Riley Hickman’s #148 “Hickman Manufacturing, American Billet, A-1 Towing, Rock Springs Tire, Chickamagua Force, Stone Cypher Drywall, Brooks Bros Racing" sponsored 604 battled back to Pritchard and took command, by mere inches at the line, just prior to a caution. On the restart Pritchard’s attempt to regain control were thwarted allowing Andy Pickelsimer and David Tindell past. Finishing behind Pritchard in fourth was Alabama’s Adam Gauldin. The A-Hobby saw the return of Soddy Daisy's Brandon Stanfield. A two week hiatus from action showed no mercy to the rest of the division. Robbie Greene was second with Charlie Shook rallying to finish third.

In the B-Hobby Chattanooga's Michael Brooks kept his pressure leading flag to flag over a debuting Lamar Hughes and polesitter Jason Emahiser.

BOYD's BOSS DUPLISSEY CAPTURES CLEVELAND's FLAG
Cleveland, TN (9/5/15) --- A night of new winners captured Cleveland Speedway’s checkered flag in most divisions Saturday Labor Day weekend with many teams taking the non-points event off to get ready for next Saturday’s 1st Final 4: Dirt Cup Points Championship for the 2015 season. The Late Model division saw a classic confrontation between high points racer Jerry Coffman and veteran Lamar Scoggins for the 25 lap feature. Unfortunately for the dou only 21 laps counted. Coffman and Scoggins would become entangled in turn one when both went low under a back-marker car. With Coffman’s left front locked into Scoggins right front wheel-well the two spun out down the back-stretch, giving the lead and eventual win to Chattanooga’s David Duplissey. The owner of Cleveland’s sister track in Chattanooga: Boyd’s Speedway collected his career first win holding off Craig Burrows for the final 4 laps. Duplissey was in his # D2 unmarked “National Boiler Service, Boyd’s Speedway, Dale McDowell Driving School” sponsored Chevrolet third quick behind Coffman and Scoggins among the twelve (12) car field. Behind the top two were Kevin Gill making his 2015 debut, Tod Hernandez and Mike Tinker.



In the Crate Late Mdel division Jason “Big” Deal of Copperhill, TN finally got the top prize after a month of trying. Justin “Smoky” Owens held strong but would settle second behind the Deal Motorsports # 7 “Ensley Trucking, American Racer South” sponsored Capital Race Car. Booger Brooks, Brent Shook and Bobby Mayse would round out the Top 5. In the A-Hobby it was a survival series kinda race as Jim Clark and Jacob Stewart crashed on the final lap as the only remaining cars on the track. Clark dashed back to the checkers for his first win of the season. Michael Brooks defeated Richard Dixon in the B-Hobby feature. The Pony’s returned for the first time since the class was dropped early this Summer for lack of participants. Chuck McMann of Knoxville, TN beat the field of eleven (11) competitors.

HICKMAN RETURNS HOME - MEET THE NEW DOSS.... 8/15

Cleveland TN (8/15/15) --- Returning to his home track for the first time in six weeks, “The Hustler” Riley Hickman dominated the Late Model 25 lap feature Saturday night at Cleveland Speedway to the delight of his fans. Hickman of Ooltewah, TN just down the road from the track set fast time before laying waste to the thirteen (13) other competitors in the #R1 “Hickman Manufacturing, American Billet, Austin Trucking, A-1 Towing, Stealth Racing Carburetors, BIF Mtorsports, Chip Vineyard Racing" sponsored Chevrolet 604 / CVR Racecar. Spencer Singleton delighted the kids at Cleveland Speedway after his win in heat #2 over Kevin Gibson with autograph pictures of his #71. Unfortunately for Singleton Gibson and Heath Hindman came for blood in the feature regulating the “North Georgia Wildman” to a fourth place finish. Paul Tims narrowly (by inches) passed rookie “Downtown” Jimmy Brown to finish fifth behind Singleton.

In an odd and huge fielded twenty-two (22) car Crate Late Model turn-out David Doss introduced himself (not only as the new Doss) to A-1 Towing Victory Lane with 2 laps remaining in the feature. Booger Brooks set the stage setting fast time and dominating the first of the feature. With contact in separate incidents with outside pole sitter Jason Deal and then Jerry Coffman, on the starts, Brooks would be eventually the victim while trying to distance himself from Craig Burrows. Brooks made contact with a back-marker car on the front straight-away and got thrown into the concrete wall, thus ending his chances at 3-in-a-row. Burrow inherited the lead and pulled away from Doss, but multiple cautions later and Burrows would blow his powerplant giving the lead to the #28 “Doss Motors, S&S Trucking, Mayo Racing Components, Paul Doss Memorial, Shriners” sponsored Crate GM 604 racecar within the final laps. Doss held back Jimmy Elliott for his first win, coming importantly with now less than two races until the Chase for the Dirt Cup begins in September. Several crashes shortened the 20-lapper, one such involved Josh Walker whom destroyed his # 9 but was luckily uninjured.

In other racing action “same ole, same ole” as Brandon Stanfield is quickly becoming the next sensation in his # 28 “S&H Erectors, Chattanooga Barricade, CRS Close Race Supply, Outlaw Graphics” sponsored Danny Warren’s Backyard Race Engines powered Chevy Camero winning his sixth overall feature of the season. Mitch Brady Jr. threw everything at Stanfield he could but would settle for the runner up position infront of Robbie Greene. In the B-Hobby “Heavy Metal Monster of the Midway” class Jimmy Smith came to race. Making his debut last week the track decided to P&G the Top 3 finishers, which unfortunately would disqualify the performance of the Red Bank, TN racer, thus handing the win to Cleveland’s Richard Dixon. The win yanks Dixon back to the top of the B-Hobby points lead as both he and runner-up Ricky Wagner have three (3) victories apiece. In the Road Warriors the K-9 of Jason Lewis of Soddy Daisy picked up a backwards victory narrowly defeating Jonathan Huff. Cleveland Speedway owners and management have decided to re-write the 2015 Fall Schedule of races and will be racing “every” Saturday night, weather permitting up til the “Gobbler” weekend in November.

Coffman was the nights fast qualifier by one / one-thousandths of a second against the 21-car field.

Todd Morrow & Skip Arp Put On Late Model Clinic

(7/11/15) In what could go down as a Race of the Year candidate at Cleveland Speedway Saturday night, Todd Morrow over powered pole sitter Skip Arp from the "Cat-Birds Seat" to score the 25-lap Late Model feature. Arp and third place Lamar Scoggins (making his 2015 debut) stayed tight on Morrow's # T1 "A+ Collision Center, COR Suspension, Allen's Pools LLC, A-1 Towing, A&K Transport, Andy Dill Trucking, KC Graphics, Stealth Racing Carburators, Coulters Race Cars & Parts" sponsored Chevrolet Late Model but could do nothing but count the laps down in a non-stop green to checkered run. Even when the former two-time Cleveland Speedway Track Champion finally encountered back-marker traffic on lap 16, Morrow eased passed with worry.

ok the early lead from the Cat-Bird's Seat on the outside front row. By lap 5 Hickman was in his zone (at Cleveland) and made quick work of Coffman, giving former Cleveland Speedway Track Champion Jason Welshan the "Bat Signal" that it was time for him to start moving back in third. By lap 8 Welshan had removed Coffman from second and set a trace on Hickman. Several times Welshan showed Hickman the nose of his racecar but Hickman was stout coming outta the corners.
