FUEL Throttles Up For Modoc Raceway Showdown

Coming off one of the most intriguing finishes in series history, FUEL reloads this week and heads south to the Georgia/South Carolina border for a $3000 To Win shootout at Modoc Raceway. Riding the competitive wave of 5 different winners in 5 events, the series heads to the recently renovated track surface which is sure to set the stage for an epic clash between CT525 and Steel Block Late Models.

“The Cushman family and Brian Stewart have poured countless resources and hours into improving Modoc Raceway”, stated FUEL’s Jason Atkins. “Last year’s event was thrilling as Brandon Overton held off challenges from Ross Bailes early and Brian Connor late in the race on an “elbows up” track. Several of our series regulars will be a threat to win Saturday, assuming they can prevail over numerous drivers in the area with tons of knowledge and experience at Modoc”.

Modoc Raceway is no stranger to hosting big dirt late model events and this weekend is shaping up to be an another chapter in dirt late model history as the South Carolina oval has an action packed show planned for Saturday.

Harrell Survives Late Race Madness To Score First FUEL Victory

Managing a right rear tire with literally no tread remaining, Shaun Harrell prevailed in a 2 lap shootout to capture the $3000 win Saturday night at Fayetteville Motor Speedway. Harrell inherited the lead when race leader Matt Long blew a tire as he approached the white flag while at the same time a caution was displayed for another incident on the speedway. It was the first FUEL Racing Series win for Harrell as the series crowned its 5th different winner in 5 events so far in 2016.

The night began with Matt Long setting Fast Time in Klotz Synthetic Lubricants Time Trials. Long narrowly edged Willie Milliken in qualifying but it was Milliken who prevailed in the D&E Marine Top 6 Dash. Harrell and Christian Thomas captured Heat Race wins to set the remainder of the grid.

Long took the lead at the drop of the green with Milliken, the winner of the FUEL event at Fayetteville in April, in hot pursuit. Milliken stalked the Concord, NC racer through the early stages of the event but Long held strong at the point while the battle between Jonathan Edwards, Donald Bradsher, Harrell, Thomas, Hunter Bailey, Michael Batten and Thomas ensued. A couple of early race cautions regrouped the field as Long remained at the point. Milliken, who seemed to be fighting a carburetor stumble, also suffered a flat tire near the midpoint sending him to the rear of the field. Long had the race in control as he exited Turn 4 to receive the white flag. As he approached the white, caution emerged on the speedway and before the cars slowed their pace to acknowledge the caution, Long’s tire expired bringing heartbreak to the FUEL rookie who was looking to become the first 2 time winner in 2016. Series regular and current point leader Jonathan Edwards suffered a flat tire on the same Lap 38 caution and the 2 lap shootout was on. Harrell assumed the point and drove his #3 Capital to victory in one of the most intriguing events in series history. He was followed to the finish line by Bailey, Michael Batten, Emory, and Bradsher.
