Harrell Holds Off Emory For Friendship Victory

(Elkin, NC) Fending off multiple and often relentless challenges from Robbie Emory, Shaun Harrell held his pursuers at bay Saturday night at Friendship Speedway to earn his first win of the season and the second of his FUEL Racing Series career.

23 FUEL Late Models made the call for the 3rd race of the 2018 campaign. In Renegade Race Fuels Time Trials, Steve Banal would set the tone with a 15.747 second lap breaking the old FUEL qualifying record of 15.800. Harrell, Robbie Emory, Derrick Ramey and Adam Yarbrough would round out the Top 5 overall qualifiers.

In Hoosier Racing Tire Heat Race #1, Steve Banal would grab the early lead as Ben Watkins made a charge from the tail of the field after experiencing mechanical problems in qualifying. Banal would fend off a charge from 2016 Series Champion Jonathan Edwards Jr for the win with Watkins, Yarbrough and Daniel Tucker rounding out the Top 5.

In FK Rod Ends Heat Race #2, Shaun Harrell would overcome a penalty on the initial start to charge to the lead after battling with Christian Thomas. Harrell would eventually pull away for the win with Matt Long finishing just behind him. Brandon Haley would finish third followed by Thomas and Michael Alderman.

In City Chevrolet Performance Heat Race #3, Robbie Emory and Derrick Ramey would initiate an intense battle for the lead early on. On a restart with Ramey out front, contact between Ramey and Brandon White would open the door for Emory to take the lead and never look back. Ramey and White would regroup to follow Emory to the finish line with Matthew Nance and Tommy Jones rounding out the Top 5.

In The Direct Racing Industry Virtual Expo Main Event, Banal and Harrell would bring the field to the initial green flag with Harrell grabbing the early lead. Emory would work his way up to the runner-up position and to mount a challenge at Harrell for the race lead. While the battle for the race lead developed, series championship leader Ben Watkins was on the move coming from his 7th starting position and worked his way to 4th in the early stages of the race. Ramey and Edwards would also contend inside the Top 5 for position as Emory and Harrell battled tooth and nail for the lead throughout the majority of the event. A caution with 6 Laps to go would bring the field together one final time and bring some late race intensity into the equation. On the final restart, Harrell finally pulled just far enough away to earn the $3000 victory win while Emory settled for 2nd. Ramey finished 3rd as Edwards Jr and Thomas rounded out the Top 5.

With their 1-2 finish at Friendship, Harrell and Emory have unofficially tightened up the series championship battle. Ben Watkins (286) leads the way through 3 events followed by Emory (282), Harrell (280), Ramey (270), and Mark Dysart (244).

Up next for FUEL is a trip to Elm City, NC for Round 4 at County Line Raceway on Saturday June 2nd. For more information on the FUEL Racing Series, visit our website fuelracingseries.com , find us on Facebook (FUEL Racing Series) and follow us on Twitter (@FuelLateModels).

Watkins Conquers Fayetteville's Fast & Furious 40

(Fayetteville, NC) With a hungry pack of charging racers behind him, Ben Watkins held off a hard charge from Shaun Harrell to earn a $3000 payday at Fayetteville Motor Speedway and his 2nd consecutive FUEL Racing Series win of 2018.

A field of 24 late models entered Renegade Race Fuels Time Trials where Watkins would post the fastest overall time with a lap of 16.771 seconds. That lap would also be quick enough to break the former FUEL Pole Record for Fayetteville Motor Speedway ironically set by Watkins himself at 17.409 just last season.

In Hoosier Racing Tire Heat Race 1, Watkins would grab the early advantage but a hard charging Willie Milliken would stress the fast qualifier for the duration of the heat race. In the end, Watkins would prevail and earn the pole position for the 40 Lap Main Event. FK Rod Ends Heat Race 2 opened up with Zach Cox making a powerful and daring 3 wide move on the opening lap to snatch the lead away from Robbie Emory and Zach Blackwell. Cox would hold his challengers at bay the rest of the way and earn the #2 starting position in the feature. City Chevrolet Performance Heat Race 3 featured Shaun Harrell flexing his muscle and local prowess as he led flag to flag over Ethan Wilson and Derrick Ramey to complete the main event starting lineup.

In The Direct Racing Industry Virtual Expo Main Event, Watkins would lead the field to the green for the 2nd consecutive race. As Watkins paced the field early, Harrell and Milliken battled intensely before mechanical troubles plagued Milliken ending his chances to challenge for the win. While Harrell continued his pursuit of the race leader, Emory and Cox turned up the heat while Dustin Mitchell began a march towards the Top 5 from his 12th starting position. As the laps clicked away, Harrell mounted one final charge but would ultimately be denied as Watkins would score his 3rd career FUEL Racing Series victory.

Up next for the FUEL Racing Series is our May 5th visit to Friendship Motor Speedway in Elkin, NC. For more information on the FUEL Racing Series, visit our website fuelracingseries.com , find us on Facebook (FUEL Racing Series) and follow us on Twitter (@FuelLateModels).
