JP Morgan Steals another Pro Cup Series Victory in the Closing Laps at Motor Mile Speedway

CARS Series PR

(Mooresville, NC) August 16, 2014  - JP Morgan, driver of the No.23 www.soldbyjackiemorgan.com Chevrolet held off Brian Keselowski’s No. 29 Highland Wealth Advisors LLC/ Dollhouse Alley Ford on green-white-checkered finish to clinch Morgan’s third season victory by .16 of a second in Saturday nights’ X-1R Pro Cup Series Food Country USA 200 presented by KOMA Unwind at Motor Mile Speedway

 

During the first half, Morgan spun the No. 23 in turn four causing him to be just outside the top eight cars for the series’ halfway redraw. Starting in ninth position on lap 100, Morgan kept the No. 23 steady in the mid-pack for the second half of the race. On lap 186 while leading, the No.25 BWP Bats Ford of Benny Gordon, and the No. 75 Food Country USA Chevrolet of Caleb Holman stopped the field with a red flag due to a pit road altercation. It was from this field change and a little luck that Morgan was able to hold off Keselowski and the remaining field to take home the checkered flag.
 
“Obviously, first and foremost we are just thankful that no one was seriously injured here tonight with all the hard racing that we saw out here at the track,” stated JP Morgan. “It was good hard racing though, some of the best we’ve seen all season, and we were able to turn a negative into a positive for us and capitalize on the last remaining laps of the race and pull off a third season win for the No. 23 team. It’s awesome to be here in victory lane for a third time and I couldn’t be more proud of our guys and the hard work and dedication they put into this car for tonight’s’ race. Things are getting ready to shake up with the championship races starting soon at Kenly, so we’ll just have to readjust and go into that knowing that we are a lead contender for the championship.”
 

Some other competitors were not so lucky to have crossed the finish line Saturday night, of whom were No.2 Boswell Electric Chevrolet of 2013 X1R Pro Cup Series ROTY (Rookie of the Year) Brady Boswell and the No. 05 Grant County Mulch Chevrolet of Codie Rohrbaugh. On lap 77, a stuck throttle sent both of them up the track and into the wall at turn two taking both cars out of the race and throwing the second caution for the night.

Toughest Competition of X-1R Pro Cup Series Season on Tap at Motor Mile

Mooresville, NC 8/12/14- This weekend’s (August 16th) rescheduled running of the X-1R Pro Cup Series Food Country USA 200 presented by KOMA Unwind & BT’s of Radford has quickly shaped up in a week’s time to be hands down the toughest race of the season amongst competitors vying for a race win. A combined 8 Pro Cup Series championships, 96 Pro Cup Series wins, 5 NASCAR Cup Series wins, and a total of 630 NASCAR starts amongst the top three series make up starting field of Saturday night’s race.

 
Those stats are amongst just the 14 drivers pre entered for the 200 lap race.  
 
But despite the smaller field size you can’t question nor deny the quality of field expected at Motor Mile. In addition to the pre entered drivers from last week’s expected race date, such as Benny Gordon, JP Morgan, Reid Wilson, Brady Boswell, and championship points leader Caleb Holman; several returning faces have bolstered the talent level even more.
 
Clay Rogers, the defending series champion, makes his 2014 season debut not driving for his former Lamb & Robinson Racing team from a season ago, but another former team Rogers drove for in 2009 winning one of his five series championships in the process with. The Mooresville, North Carolina driver will pilot the #154 JCR3 Racing ride as a teammate to rookie driver Matt Craig, who had his best career finish of third in Radford earlier this season. Rogers’ ride will feature the throwback paint scheme that brought the combo an abundant amount of success over the years. The veteran and rookie combo is perfect plan for the JCR3 Racing organization, and should ones to watch Saturday night.

Unfinished Business For Reid Wilson At Motor Mile

FAIRLAWN, Virginia (August 7, 2014) – - Even though the most recent X-1R Pro Cup Series race for Reid Wilson (@reidwilson66) didn’t pan out as planned, the Reid Wilson Racing (RWR) team looks to put that effort in the rear-view mirror and travel back to the Motor Mile this weekend on a strict agenda.

On the heels of a career-best finish at Tri-County (N.C.) Motor Speedway last month, Wilson and his family-owned team headed to the Summertime Showdown 200 at Orange County (N.C.) hoping to capitalize on the momentum with Wilson’s first career win.

Unfortunately, the team had some struggles in the seventh race of the season. After posting decent times during their practice runs in his No. 66 Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits Chevrolet, the team missed the opportunity to deliver in qualifying and lined up 10th.

During the race, Wilson, quickly drove his No. 66 Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits Chevrolet to fifth by the time the caution flew for the half-time break.

Redrawing third to kick-off the second-half of the Summertime Showdown 200, Wilson drifted back momentarily once the green flag flew, but as the end of the race neared, Wilson began his charge back towards the lead pack, finding himself fifth and closing on fourth, when the distributor rotor gave way four laps from the finish, pedaling back the No. 66 Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits Chevrolet to a seventh place finish.

Event Preview - Food Country USA 200 presented by KOMA Unwind & BT’s of Radford Motor Mile Speedway-Fairlawn, VA

Mooresville, NC8/5/14: This weekend’s Food Country USA 200 will be the final opportunity for drivers to put themselves in the best possible position for the series reset of the championship standings. The reset will be staggered by the per race points system with twelve bonus points to each driver who ran all the regular season events, in addition to a single bonus point to each driver that has scored a win this season.
 
Earlier this season JP Morgan picked up one of those bonus points at Motor Mile when the series visited the beautiful 4/10th mile facility in June, edging championship points leader Caleb Holman on a green-white-checkered restart. With both drivers having two wins a piece, this final bonus point could be crucial down the road. In addition to the two veterans a pair of youngsters in Reid Wilson and Brady Boswell would love to get their first career win and take the extra bonus point with them in the championship series. Two time series champion Benny Gordon, running a limited schedule this season, might be the guy to beat out of everyone. Gordon dominated the June race before a broken tie rod ended his sure win two laps prior to the finish.

Caleb Holman Outduels Colman Pressley for Pro Cup Win at Orange County Speedway

Mooresville, NC 7/28/14- Saturday night the huge crowd in attendance at Orange County Speedway saw some incredible racing as championship points leader Caleb Holman outdueled Coleman Pressley in the final twenty laps to win his second race of the season. With the win Holman extended his points lead over the competition, and gained an all-important bonus point toward his totals when the championship series begins on September 6th at Southern National.

“I sure hope all these fans enjoyed it because from my vantage point it looked pretty good,” explained an excited Caleb Holman in Edelbrock Victory Lane after the race. “There was some real good racing tonight. These guys know how to beat and bang you without spinning you out and that’s how you’re supposed to race. It’s tough to pass here because you can run side by side all the way around, but eventually I was able to get around Coleman (Pressley) there at the end. A big thanks goes out to Food Country USA and this entire Henderson Motorsports race team for their support.” 

Coleman Pressley finished second keeping his average finish this season at 1.5 after winning in his only other start this season on April 5th at Hickory. South Carolina youngster Gus Dean continued to impress rounding out the podium once again. Dean has the second best average finish this season and sits fifth in the standings despite missing one event.

Holman took the lead from his second place starting position on lap one and held on to the top spot until the competition caution on lap 100 for the halfway break. The Virginia driver didn’t fare well with the series redraw of the top eight positions at the break moving his #75 ride back to sixth and handing the lead to fellow veteran Brian Keselowski as the field went back to green flag racing
