Event Preview: Catawba Valley 250, Hickory Motor Speedway, Newton, NC

Mooresville, NC 4/1/14: After Caleb Holman continued his domination at Southern National two weeks ago the X-1R Pro Cup Series moves to the Hickory Motor Speedway for the second race of the season. Last year Clay Rogers did the clean sweep at the .363 mile track, but now with Rogers out of the picture it’s anyones guess who will take home the $8,000 check at nights end. Newcomer Matt Craig and Hickory Motor Speedway regular Doug Barns Jr. will both be making their series debut but are expected to challenge for top five finishes when the checkered flag flies. Series sophomores Reid Wilson, who sat the pole at this race a year ago, and Brady Boswell, who lead almost 100 laps before settling for second position last fall, should also be ones to watch Saturday night.

Caleb Holman Opens X-1R Pro Cup Season with Win at Southern National

Mooresville, NC 3/24/14- Without a doubt Caleb Holman knows his way around the 4/10 mile Southern National Motorsports Park, as the Abingdon, Virginia native scored the victory in the season opening event for the CARS X-1R Pro Cup Series Saturday night. The win gave Holman his second victory at the Eastern North Carolina track in two years having won the same event a season ago.
 
“We had a great car all day and it showed. I knew the #56 (Gus Dean) was pretty good because he ran me down in the first portion of the race, but he had a little bit more trouble getting through traffic after the halfway redraw. That allowed up to pull away at the end for the win,” explained Holman in Edelbrock Victory Lane. “A big thank you to all these Henderson Motorsports guys for their hard work today. This win gives us a great start to the season and you never know where it can go from here. I’m still going to run some NASCAR truck series races this year including next weekend at Martinsville, but this Pro Cup Series will be our main focus this season.”
 
Holman was followed by a pair of youngsters in Gus Dean and Reid Wilson to round out the podium. Dean, who once again came up just short of scoring his first series win, rallied late with his #56 machine that was good on the long runs but it just wasn’t enough leaving the South Carolina driver disappointed at Southern National once again. Reid Wilson on the other hand was thrilled with his first career podium finish. Wilson, led by crew chief “Pops” Herman, made the correct adjustments to the #66 Bojangles/Cheerwine Chevrolet at the halfway break which resulted to the good finish.
 
“Pops made some good changes at the break and we had an awesome car in the second half. This is great start to the season for my Reid Wilson Racing team. I have to thank my sponsors Bojangles and Cheerwine for their support this year. Hopefully this is the first of many good finishes for those guys this year,” said an excited Wilson at night’s end.
