Huffman finds Victory Lane On "Sams Club Night at the Races"

By: Julie Buckner

(June 8th, 2013 ) - Hickory Motor Speedway welcomed first time sponsor Sams Club for a great night of racing with six divisions participating. Sams Club and Remax provided fans a ride in a hot air balloon with the proceeds going to The Children's Miracle Network. Hickory Motor Speedway also held a moment of silence to honor former 5 time Late Model Sportsman track champion (1977-1981) John Settlemyre who passed away earlier in the week.

The K & P Construction 4-Cylinders started the nights racing with the #99 of Matt Elledge leading them to the green flag with the #21 of Todd Harrington on the outside. On lap six the #21 of Eddie Gilbert spun in turn two bringing out the caution. Harrington would take the early lead from Elledge. On lap thirteen, Elledge would take the lead back from Harrington with the #16 of Randy Freeze moving to third. On lap twenty-two, Freeze inherits third place after Harrington falls back to seventh. Elledge would take the checkered flag, followed by Freeze, the #98 of Chase Pollard, Gilbert and the #51 of Nathaniel Kanupp.

Next up would be the Paramount KIA Limited Late Models. The #15 of Justin Bolton led the field to the green flag with his first pole at Hickory. The #12 of Evan Duggins, the #51 of Jeremy Pelfrey and the #00 of Shane Lee raced side by side for several laps while Bolton would pull away from the field. On lap 20 of the event the #25 of Allen Huffman comes down pit down with mechanical problems. The race would be caution free with Bolton taking his first win at Hickory Motor Speedway. The #15 of Sheflon Clay was second, the #75 of Landon Huffman was third, the #18 of Casey Pierce was fourth and the #07 of Josh Bralley was fifth.

The #33 of Mark Whitten led the Street Stocks to the green flag for the third event of the night with the #03 of Kevin Eby starting second. The racing would be three wide going into turn one from the start. Side by side racing throughout the field would be the norm tonight for the street stocks. The first caution would come out for a spin on the backstretch involving the # 10 of Kevin Townsend. On the restart Eby would lead the field to the flag with the #16 of Jonathon Smith racing hard. Coming to the checkered flag there would be contact between Eby and Smith which would result in both cars spinning to the finish, while Whitten comes from third to take his first victory at Hickory Motor Speedway. Finishing second was Eby, Smith, the #63 of Marshall Sutton and the #10 of Kevin Townsend.

The #16 of Clint Fields took the Gold King Super Truck pole with the #33 of Jeremy Birch starting second. Fields would take the early lead with the #09 of Kevin Leicht, the #23 of Matt Leicht and Birch battling for position behind him. Fields would get the win, with Kevin Leicht second, Matt Leicht third, the #9 of Lee Queen fourth and the #03 of Chase Campbell fifth.

The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Bojangles Late Models were up next with the #7 of Ashley Huffman starting on the pole. At the green the #8 of David Garbo would get loose on the backstretch collecting the #88 of Josh Wright, and the #00 of Shane Lee in the accident. Wright and Garbo would move to pit road with heavy damage on their cars. Lee would be able to continue. The # 25 of Matt Piercy would take the early lead, followed closely by Huffman, the #12 of Austin McDaniel, the #43 of Jesse LeFevers and Lee. Huffman would make a move on Piercy and take the lead on Lap 10 with LeFevers closing in. Caution would wave on lap thirty-one for debris on the backstretch. On the restart Huffman would continue to lead and takes the checkered flag, followed by LeFevers, McDaniel, Lee and Piercy.

The #8 of Kenneth Roberts started on the pole for the WrenchRags Renegades race. On lap 10 the #77 of Shawn Hayes would bring out the first caution spinning on the front stretch. Roberts would go on the take the checkered flag, followed by #16 of Carroll McKinney, the #4 of Greg Austin, the #6 of Darren Dickinson and Hayes.
