Bailes Reigns At Wythe To Extend Championship Lead

Rising to the challenge of the largest track on the schedule, Ross Bailes scored his series leading 5th victory of the season Saturday night at Wythe Raceway and simultaneously took a commanding lead in the FUEL Racing Series championship standings.

After late afternoon showers initially plagued the Rural Retreat venue, the action heated up quickly in Klotz Synthetic Lubricants Time Trials. Bailes lap of 17.321 narrowly edged out Virginia's Daniel Baggerly to capture Fast Time Honors. Unfortunately for Baggerly, mechanical problems struck at the conclusion of his qualifying session and ended his night prematurely. Due to time constraints created by the rain delay, Wythe and FUEL officials agreed to scratch the dash and heat races from the schedule. However, in honor of Wythe Raceway's 45th Anniversary, the main event was extended from 40 to 45 laps.

Bailes set a torrid pace early followed by Brandon Atkinson. Early caution flags saw the night's of Billy Hicks and then Shanon Buckingham come to an early end. Bailes extended his lead through the middle stages of the event only to have Atkinson close in as the leader worked through lap traffic. Newcomer Donnie Chappell controlled the 3rd position as Ricky Weeks and Dan Breuer, who overcame an early race spin, worked into the Top 5. Atkinson got one final chance to contend with Bailes on a late race restart but the Clover, South Carolina racer would not be denied as Bailes completed an impressive flag to flag performance. Atkinson continued his recent momentum by scoring his best career finish with the series. In only his 2nd series event, Chappell finished a strong 3rd with Weeks and Breuer rounding out the Top 5.

Up next for the FUEL Racing Series is a September 19th race at Friendship Motor Speedway in Elkin, NC. For more information about the FUEL Racing Series, visit fuelracingseries.com , find us on Facebook (FUEL Racing Series), and follow us on Twitter (@FUEL525SERIES).

Overton Conquers Modoc To Capture First FUEL Victory

After taking command at the drop of the green, Georgia's Brandon Overton captured $3000 and his 1st career FUEL victory in an exciting series debut at Modoc Raceway.

Ross Bailes set fast time in Klotz Synthetics Time Trials and was joined in the D&E Marine Dash by Overton, Ricky Weeks, & Gib Gibbons. Overton prevailed in the dash followed by Bailes, Weeks, & Gibbons.

Brandon Atkinson secured the win in Milwaukee Tool Heat #1 while Brett Hamm scored the victory in Heintz Performance Heat Race #2.

Overton took command early with Bailes stalking his every move. The action intensified quickly behind the lead duo as side by side battles developed throughout the field. While Brian Connor began his march towards the front, the racing gods were not as kind to the series championship leaders. In a 15 lap span, each of the Top 3 championship contenders (Bailes, Hamm, & Gibbons) found themselves sidelined and out of contention.

Connor slid by Ricky Weeks and quickly began his pursuit of Overton. Connor nearly erased the gap between himself and the leader but Overton refused to relinquish his position at the point. Overton closed the door one final time late in the event and was followed to the finish line by Connor and Weeks. Wendell Chavous and a rapidly improving Brandon Atkinson finished 4th and 5th respectively.

Up next for the FUEL Racing Series is a trip to Rural Retreat, Virginia's Wythe Raceway on Saturday August 15th for another $3000 To Win event, $300 to start event!

Bailes Captures Historic FUEL Win At Friendship

On a night where history was made in the FUEL Racing Series, Ross Bailes capturing his series leading 4th win of 2015 and pocketed $3,000 with his flag to flag performance.

The first historic moment came early in the evening as 20 drivers would make the call for the race making it the largest field of FUEL Late Models to enter a single event in the short history of the series. Adding his own personal entry into the record books in Klotz Synthetics Time Trials, Bailes eclipsed the previous CT525 track record of 16.003 with a lap of 16.000 seconds around the Elkin, NC oval.

Bailes would also go on to win the D&E Marine Dash to earn the pole position for the 40 lap feature. Ricky Weeks secured the victory in Milwaukee Tool Heat Race #1 while Donald Bradsher cruised to victory in Heintz Performance Heat Race #2.

After powering to the lead at the drop of the green, Bailes would be pursued and occasionally tested as championship contender Brett Hamm would make a run at the race leader. The intensity heated up behind the lead duo as Mitchell Coble, Gib Gibbons, Ricky Weeks and Donald Bradsher battled throughout the event. Billy Hicks and Ryan Atkins joined the war for the Top 5 as Hamm prepared to make one last charge at the race leader. Hamm went on to finish a close 2nd, followed by a hard-charging Ryan Atkins who would come from 8th to finish 3rd in the feature. Gib Gibbons and Billy Hicks rounded out the Top 5.

Bailes unofficially extended his championship lead to 10 points as the series makes its first visit to Modoc Raceway on Saturday, August 8th.
