Milliken Scores 1st Career FUEL Win At Fayetteville

Fayetteville, NC- Making his FUEL Racing Series debut, Willie Milliken earned his first career win leading flag to flag in Fayetteville Motor Speedway's Tolar Supply Fast & Furious 40. Milliken held off a persistent challenge from Donald Bradsher to earn the $3,000 payday and become the 7th different winning driver in FUEL Series history.

23 FUEL Late Models signed in for the 2nd series race of the 2016 season boasting a lineup filled with series regulars along with several drivers making their FUEL Series debuts.

In Klotz Synthetic Lubricants time trials it was series newcomer Willie Milliken setting quick time with a 17.957 second lap at Fayetteville Motor Speedway. Milliken would follow his pole winning run with a win in the D&E Marine Dash over Bradsher, Jonathan Edwards, and Robbie Emory.

In the two heat races Jeff Smith and Hunter Bailey prevailed to help set the starting lineup for the 40 lap feature.

Milliken would jump out to the early lead in the feature with Bradsher tucked in behind in a close 2nd. Throughout the night, 3rd place would be a revolving door of drivers as Edwards, Emory & Matt Long would all make runs in and out of the Top 3. Within the final 10 laps Bradsher would make one last charge at Milliken's lead and would cut the lead down to a single car length but Milliken would hold strong and earn the victory. Bradsher would finish a close 2nd followed by Edwards, Emory & Long.

Up next for the FUEL Racing Series is a Saturday, May 14th trip to Friendship Motor Speedway in Elkin, NC for a $3,000 to win, $300 to start main event.

FUEL Blazes Trail To Fayetteville For Fast & Furious 40

Riding the momentum of last week’s historic season opener, FUEL Racing Series teams are zeroing in on Round 2 this Saturday at Fayetteville Motor Speedway where $3000 will be up for grabs in the Tolar Piping & Supply Fast & Furious 40. Defending series champion Ross Bailes, after an intense battle with Donald Bradsher, prevailed in the series opener last Saturday night at Cherokee which delivered a staggering and record setting 34 entries.

Side by side racing was abundant through the field throughout the event as several new teams feverishly battled the series veterans. Steve Banal kicked off his 2016 FUEL campaign with a strong 3rd place run as he edged out FUEL newcomers Jeff Smith and Jonathan Edwards who finished 4th and 5th respectively. Track and series officials have already received commitments for multiple teams that plan to make their series debut this weekend at “The Hometown Track”

If last year’s event at Fayetteville and this past weekend's season opener are any indication of the racing action to come, Saturday night could be historic in its own right as the local and regional stars collide with the FUEL series regulars for the first of 2 visits to the eastern North Carolina venue in 2016.

Bailes Emerges Victorious As FUEL Makes History At Cherokee

(Gaffney, SC) Making a pass for the lead with just 12 laps to go after an intense battle with race leader Donald Bradsher, Ross Bailes earned his second win at Cherokee Speedway and the 11th of his FUEL Racing Series career.

History was etched into the record books before the on-track action even began as a staggering 34 FUEL Late Models signed in. It was the largest number ever recorded in series history for entries.

In Klotz Synthetics Time Trials it was Donald Bradsher setting quick time with a 16.172 second lap around the 3/8 mile South Carolina oval. Bradsher would follow his pole run with a win in the D&E Marine Top 6 Dash.

The racing action from the dash transitioned into the three heat races as well. Justin Hudspeth, Robbie Bailey and Jonathan Edwards earned heat race wins to help set the lineup for the 40 lap City Chevrolet Performance Main Event.

Bradsher soared to the early lead off the initial start with Bailes following behind in second early on. Bradsher was strong early but his growing momentum would be hindered by a couple of caution flags. Steve Banal, Jeff Smith and Trent Ivey established their presence in the top 5 and kept the lead duo close.

On lap 28, Bailes made his move for the point and overtook Bradsher for the top spot. A caution on lap 30 regrouped the field and set the stage for a 10 lap shootout to the finish. Bailes solidified his position on the restart and never looked back as he secured the win in his CT525 powered #87. Bradsher followed close behind in 2nd and Banal would hold on for 3rd. Smith and Jonathan Edwards rounded out the Top 5.

Up next for the FUEL Racing Series is a Saturday, April 16th trip to Fayetteville Motor Speedway for a $3,000 to win/$300 to start event.
