Event Preview: Bojangles’ 250 Hickory Motor Speedway – Newton, NC

Mooresville, NC 10/14/13: It’s been six months since Clay Rogers took the checkered flag at Hickory Motor Speedway in April, winning the Catawba Valley 250, with fellow competitor J.P. Morgan finishing right behind him in the runner-up position. Flash forward to this weekend as the X-1R Pro Cup Series makes its return to the abrasive .363 mile track, and the championship standings look a lot like the results from the past race, with Rogers leading the way over Morgan. There’s no hiding Rogers’ success at the track, so with just two races remaining on the championship schedule Morgan, no doubt, has his work cut out for him if he wants to make things interesting for the top spot. Dylan Presnell, Coleman Pressley, Rich Gould, along with Reid Wilson, making his return to series action, are all drivers making one off starts in attempt to go home with nothing less than a win. With some looking for cash and prizes and others looking for the championship title, it could be an interesting race to see for those in attendance.

J.P. Morgan Celebrates the Birth of His Daughter by Staying Undefeated at Anderson in Pro Cup Competition

Mooresville, NC 10/7/13- J.P. Morgan did what he needed to do to stay in the hunt for 2013 X-1R Pro Cup Series Championship as he bested Clay Rogers at Anderson Motor Speedway Saturday night. The win was Morgan’s third of the season and kept the Ether, North Carolina driver undefeated at the South Carolina track dating back to the series’ inaugural event there in March of 2012.
 
Championship leader Clay Rogers grabbed his first MAHLE Pole Award of the year, and then matched his runner up finish from two months ago at the same track. Series sophomore Gus Dean rounded out the podium with his third place finish making it back to back top five finishes in the last two races.
 
“I’m not sure what it is about this place, but I love it as much as it’s loved me the last couple of years. The fans here are always great, and it’s just a good racing race track,” explained J.P Morgan in Edlebrock Victory Lane. “Last night was a long night for me so standing here in victory lane right now caps a perfect weekend for me, my family, and this team. I know it’s going to be tough to catch Clay with just two races to go, but this sure does help things in the points.”
 
Morgan, who had a sleepless Friday night welcoming his first child into the world with wife Jackie, qualified third behind #02 machine of Tyler Young and pole sitter Clay Rogers. It was Rogers who jumped out to the early lead taking advantage of his best starting position this season. Rogers opened a sizable lead through the first sixty-three laps over AFR Rookie of the Year contender Eric Gerchak and veteran J.P. Morgan before the field was slowed for debris laying in turn two.

Event Preview: Palmetto State 250 Anderson Motor Speedway – Williamston, SC

Mooresville, NC 10/2/13: The tight bull ring racing that Anderson Motor Speedway produces is what’s next for the stars and cars of the X-1R Pro Cup Series. The series makes their return to the South Carolina track after J.P. Morgan, who is undefeated in series history at Anderson, won the Back to School 250 in August. Morgan’s return to a track he is so dominate at is just what he needs after a poor showing at Southern National last week that allowed Clay Rogers to open the gap to 96 points in the championship series with three races remaining. West Virginia native Codie Rohrbaugh and Sevierville, TN driver Dylan Presnell both make their return to the series to mix things up for a win amongst championship contenders. With big money and championships being decided look for this weekend’s race at Anderson to make waves amongst competitors.

TOP STORIES:
J.P. Morgan is Undefeated in Series History at Anderson: The only driver fans at Anderson Motor Speedway have seen win in the X-1R Pro Cup Series competition is 2012 series champion J.P. Morgan. The Ether, NC driver won the series inaugural race at the South Carolina track in 2012, and earlier this season he had the best car, hands down, taking the win in the Back to School 250. Morgan no doubt will be the man to beat this Saturday night. The timing couldn’t be better for Morgan to return to “his track” if he has hopes of slowing Clay Rogers progress of capturing his fifth series championship.

Clay Rogers Introduces High Side to All Involved at Southern National Picking up His Fifth Win of the Season

Mooresville, NC 10/1/13 - There’s not much of a reputation of a “high side” racing groove at Southern National Motorsports Park located just outside Lucama, NC in Eastern North Carolina. Saturday night in front of a healthy crowd four time series champion and current championship points leader Clay Rogers showed those in attendance, and especially his fellow competitors, that you can race on the high side at Southern National. Rogers went from third to first over the final twenty-five laps on the high side of the race track to steal the win from fellow veteran Caleb Holman who looked to be on his way to victory lane once again.

“This place has been one of the worst tracks for me my entire career so be standing here in victory lane right now is pretty special. I’ve won a lot of races in this series and sometimes certain ones just standout to you for personal reasons; this one right here is one of them,” stated Rogers in Edlebrock Victory Lane.

Eventual third place finisher Tyler Young, making just fifth start of the 2013 season, lead the field to green after blistering the field in MAHLE qualifying. The initial start of the race proved to be a costly one for several drivers when two time NASCAR National Weekly Series champion Lee Pulliam, making his series debut, missed a shift causing the field to stack up. Pooler, Georgia’s Andrew Smith and the #1 machine of Dalton Hopkins got the worst of it as both machines received extensive front end damage.

The field no longer went back to green flag racing when the yellow would fly once again due to oil on the racing surface. The oil was found to be coming from Pulliam’s #41 machine who had fallen several positions just before the field slowed. The consequences of Pulliam’s missed shift bent a rear end line forcing his Top Gun Motorsports team to make repairs as the field went back to green flag racing.

 

The fifty-two lap run to the competition caution at the event’s halfway point on lap 100 produced some intense moments. Rookie Eric Gerchak was the man on the move after starting shotgun on the field due to his team making unapproved adjustments to his #21 LKN Cash for Gold Chevy after qualifying. Gerchak advanced up the fifth place position about the same time Rogers made his move by Tyler Young for the lead position to earn five bonus points for leading a lap and five more for winning the Roush-Yates Performance Products Halfway Leader Award.
