Event Preview: Morgan McClure Ford – Chevrolet 200, Lonesome Pine Raceway, Coeburn, VA

 

Mooresville, NC 9/30/14: Lonesome Pine Raceway will host race No. 3 of the 2014 X-1R Championship Race Events.  This is the next to last event that will determine how things stack up for the final 2014 series season event at Hickory Motor Speedway in just a few weeks.  Currently, Caleb Holman, is still holding onto 1st place as series points leader with 102 points. 2012 Series Champion, J.P. Morgan, trails Holman by just a mere14 points; shortening the lead for the championship.  Rounding out the top three positions is series veteran Jeff Oakley, just 7 points shy behind Morgan.  The last time the banked oval held a Pro Cup race was in 2011 when Caleb Holman led 95 laps of the 200 lap event and took home the trophy.  J.P. Morgan was not far behind, and rounded out the top five.  Considering these two drivers are currently in a battle for the championship, and the last two drivers entered to have raced at Lonesome Pine, it might be safe to say that we will have a battle when it comes down to taking the checkered flag Saturday night.

Caleb Holman Picks up His Fourth Pro Cup Win of the Season at Coastal Plains

Mooresville, NC 9/22/14- Caleb Holman picked up his fourth win of the 2014 X-1R Pro Cup season Sunday afternoon at Coastal Plains Raceway, after rain forced the running of the Coastal Carolina 200 back a day at the Jacksonville, North Carolina race track. The Abingdon, Virginia driver won the pole in MAHLE Pole Award in qualifying and then led flag-to-flag en route to the victory.
 
“This Coastal Plains track is one of the weirdest places I’ve ever driven that’s for sure, but we still had a good race car all day long. Usually the weirder the place the more I like it,” explained a jubilant Holman in Edelbrock Victory Lane. “It was frustrating to have to stay another day, but the Pro Cup officials made the right call and it worked out pretty good for us as you can see. We’re trying to win this championship and so far we are two for two. I’d say if we can keep this up we’ll be ok. Next up we go to Coeburn (Lonesome Pine Raceway) which is my home track and usually your home track is the place you have your worst luck at; or at least I do it seems.”
 
While Holman was celebrating another team was just as happy with their trip to Coastal Plains. AFR Rookie of the Year leader Codie Rohrbaugh made it a career day finishing just behind Holman in the runner up position. Rohrbaugh, who has shown tremendous growth this season, challenged Holman on several occasions but never quite had what it took to get around Holman’s #75 Food Country USA Chevrolet. Despite that he and his Grant County Mulch racing team were satisfied with their results.
 
“I was doing all I could to keep up with Caleb, he just had a little better car than I did; maybe his veteran experience was a factor too. Overall we actually had one of the better cars we’ve had all year,” noted Rohrbaugh after the race. “Hopefully this gives us a little momentum to close out the year and seal up this rookie title. That was our goal this year and we seem to be getting better as the season winds down.”   
 
Veteran Jeff Oakley rounded out the podium with his third place finish. The veteran driver, led by former NASCAR regular Stacy Compton, matched his season best finish from earlier this year at Memphis.
 
Next up for the X-1R Pro Cup Series is the Morgan-McClure 200 at Lonesome Pine Raceway in Coeburn, Virginia on Saturday October 4th. For more information on this event and the entire X-1R Pro Cup Series visit www.carsprocup.com or contact the series directly at 704-662-9212.

Event Preview: Coastal Carolina 200 presented by Battlefield Tire Pros - Coastal Plains Raceway-Jacksonville, NC

Mooresville, NC 9/16/14: Race two of the 2014 Championship Series could be the biggest X factor on deciding this year’s X-1R Pro Cup Series champion and rookie of the year. Not a single driver entered in this weekend’s Coastal Carolina 200 has ever raced at the 4/10th mile facility located in Jacksonville, NC. That alone leaves a big question mark on the field as to who the “favorite” would be to take home the hardware. In addition, championship contenders will not only have to keep their nose clean and stay out of trouble like most weeks; they must figure out the quickest way around a green tri oval race track that hasn’t seen much action this season.

Flashback to History at Coastal Plains:
Coastal Plains Raceway has hosted two Pro Cup Series races in previous seasons. Both events came in consecutive years, with Shane Huffman dominating the inaugural event in 2001 in route to the victory, followed by Bobby Gill winning in the 150 lap race the following year in 2002. Both winners started on the front row and lead at least half the scheduled distance before pulling into Victory Lane at night’s end.

Injury Sidelines Reid Wilson For Coastal Plains

Reid Wilson Racing Regroups Following Southern National Incident

HUNTERSVILLE, North Carolina (September 18, 2014) – - Reid Wilson Racing (RWR) announced today that it will be necessary to sit out this weekend’s X-1R Pro Cup Series event at Coastal Plains Speedway, because of injuries sustained at Southern National (N.C.) Motorsports Park earlier this month.

Contact between Reid Wilson and another competitor in the Gold Leaf 200, sent Wilson’s No. 66 Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits Chevrolet hard into the outside wall and a trip to a local hospital for medical attention.

Since returning to his home in Huntersville, N.C., Wilson has remained under care from his personal physician and a sports injury specialist, who suggested that he sit out this weekend’s race in order to make a speedy, full recovery.

“It’s unfortunate that we won’t be able to contend for the championship, but we need to think safety first,” said Barry Wilson, Reid Wilson Racing team principal. “We had a well-positioned plan if Reid would have received clearance to compete this weekend. But, in the best interest of Reid’s healthy recovery, we will skip Coastal Plains and hope to be back for the second to last race.”

While the team is hopeful that they’ll return to contend for Wilson’s first career X-1R Pro Cup Series victory at Lonesome Pine next month, the Reid Wilson Racing team is extremely confident they’ll be able to compete with Wilson at the helm in the season-finale, The Bojangles’ 250 at Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway, on October 18.
