Bradsher Electrifies Hartwell With Rousey Memorial Victory

(Hartwell, GA - Mark Bochiardy Photo) After knocking on Victory Lane's door for three consecutive events, Donald Bradsher sealed the deal Saturday night by capturing the Wendell Rousey Memorial at Hartwell Speedway. Bradsher vaulted to the lead on the opening lap from his front row starting spot and never looked back in scoring the $3000 victory.

Bradsher, the Klotz Synthetics Fast Qualifier, finished 2nd in the D&E Marine Dash as local standout Ashley Poole captured the Dash victory over Bradsher, Jonathan Edwards, and Brian Connor.

Caution flags, including one for front row starter Ashley Poole's flat tire, plagued the event in the early stages. As Bradsher set the pace early on, Ross Bailes made his move toward the front before retiring with damage to the nose of his #87. Connor, Keith Freeman, Dustin Mitchell, and Robbie Emory battled feverishly throughout the event to position themselves for a run at the race leader. Contact between Connor and Mitchell on the back straightaway led to a late race caution setting the field up for a sprint to the checkered flag.

Freeman made one last valiant effort to reel in the race leader but he could not overtake Bradsher as the Burlington, NC driver would not be denied his first series victory of the season. Bradsher, who extended his championship point lead, was followed to the line by Freeman, Emory, Dan Breuer, and Jonathan Edwards.

Our sincerest thanks and appreciation goes to Hartwell Speedway and the entire Rousey family for allowing us to share this annual tradition and celebration with them once again.

FUEL Championship Battle Heads To Hartwell

As Round 4 of the 2016 FUEL Racing Series heads to Hartwell Speedway this weekend, series officials are honored to once again be partnering with Hartwell for the Wendell Rousey Memorial.

With three different winners in three events so far this season, Saturday night's showdown should be even more electric as several local and regional drivers are expected to make their 2016 series debut.

While Donald Bradsher still leads the championship standings, Jonathan Edwards continues to hang tough thanks to his runner-up finish at Friendship. Jeff Smith, Robbie Emory, and Friendship winner Matt Long round out the Top 5 in the current standings.

It will be the 2nd consecutive year that FUEL has joined the Rousey family and Hartwell Speedway to celebrate the life of one of our sport's greatest friends. Once again the Rousey family has extended their personal support by offering $200 to the fastest qualifier for the FUEL Racing Series teams! Brett Hamm turned back a hard charging Brandon Overton in last year's event and we expect this year's race to be just as thrilling as the series continues to grow through support from series veterans and several new faces.

Matt Long Dominates Friendship, Captures First FUEL Victory

(Elkin, NC) - For the 2nd consecutive race, the FUEL Racing Series welcomed a first time winner as Matt Long prevailed for his first career FUEL Series win Saturday night at with a flag to flag performance at Friendship Speedway.

The night began with 22 FUEL Late Models signed in for the 3rd race of the 2016 season. In Klotz Synthetic Lubricants Time Trials, Long blistering lap of 15.800 topped the charts and also eclipsed the old FUEL Series qualifying record at 4/10 mile oval. Long followed up his quick time award with a win in the D&E Marine Top 6 Dash edging out series point leader Donald Bradsher.

The remainder of the main event starting lineup was set through heat races. In Hoosier Racing Tire Heat Race #1, Ricky Weeks prevailed over Ryan Atkins. Jonathan Edwards captured Heintz Performance Heat Race #2 over Justin Hudspeth.

Long vaulted to the lead at the drop of the green with Donald Bradsher and Jeff Smith in tow. A couple of early caution flags slowed the event early on, hindering any long green flag runs from occurring. The most unfortunate incident occurred on lap 16 when a multiple car pileup entering Turn 1 ended the night of multiple contenders including Smith and Michael Batten.

Once the racing action resumed, Long flexed his muscle at the point and began to show his dominance while the remainder of the Top 5 battled feverishly behind him. Long controlled the race the rest of the way and led the remaining 24 laps to earn the $3000 payday. Jonathan Edwards followed Long to the line to score his best finish of the season. Bradsher, hard charger Dan Breuer, and Ricky Weeks rounded out the Top 5.

Up next for the FUEL Racing Series is a Saturday, May 21st trip to Hartwell Speedway in Hartwell, Georgia for a $3,000 to win $300 to start main event.
