Haws Celebrates Victory at Hickory Motor Speedway  

(Newton, NC - - June 9, 2014) Race fans enjoyed an action packed evening of short-track racing for a great cause, the Children's Miracle Network Saturday night and witnessed Brayton Haws (No. 41) pick up his first Bojangles' Late Model win of the season at America's Most Famous Short Track. The night also included featured wins by Casey Pierce (No. 18) in the Gold King Limited Late Model division, Dan Moore (No. 22) in the Street Stocks, Lee Queen (No. 09) in Super Trucks and Chase Pollard (No. 98) in the 4-Cylinders, prior to the evening being capped off by a benefit concert featuring TNT and Throwdown Jones.

Hickory Motor Speedway would like to extend a special thanks to everyone that participated as there was well over 6,000 dollars raised for the Children's Miracle Network Saturday Night.

Josh Berry (No. 88) set fast time during qualifying and led the field to green in the 50-lap Bojangles' Late Model feature event, but fell back in the running order by lap five allowing the No. 75 of Landon Huffman the opportunity to settle into the lead. Huffman would remain out front until a late-race caution period stacked up the field. On the restart it became a four car battle between Huffman, Haws, Berry and the No. 25 of Matt Piercy with contact between Haws and Huffman coming to the checkered and Haws taking the win, leaving Huffman to settle for second, Berry came in third, Piercy crossed the line fourth and the No. 12 of Austin McDaniel completed the top five.

The No. 1 of Dillon Wilson brought the competition to the green flag for the start of the 35-lap Gold King Limited Late Model event, but relinquished his position in the running order to Casey Pierce (No. 18) on lap eight. Pierce went on to pick up the win leaving Wilson, the No. 9 of Charlie Watson, No. 7 of Taylor Stricklin and No. 1 of Trent Barnes to round out the top five.

Dan Moore (No. 22) started the Street Stocks race from the pole position but the No. 10 of Kevin Townsend took over the lead during the early laps of the 30-lap event. A caution on lap 20 put Moore back in position to regain his spot in front of the field during the closing laps. Moore went on to collect the victory. The No. 64 of Marshall Sutton, No. 03 of Kevin Eby, No. 2 of Larry Mosher and No. 33 of Mark Whitten finished second through fifth, respectively.

The No. 7 of Whitney Lail picked up her first pole in the Super Truck division and paced the field for the start of the 35-lap race. On the first lap, the No. 9 of Lee Queen jumped in front of Lail, taking over the top spot where he would remain until taking the checkered flag. The No. 09 of Spencer Boyd, No. 77 of Tal Davidson, No. 2 of Josh Ramsey, Lail and the No. 15 of Landon Huffman made up the top five.

The No. 98 of Chase Pollard led the 4-Cylinder field to the green flag, and created a sizable lead over the competition during the early laps on his way to Victory Lane. The No. 00 of Eddie Gilbert came home second, with the No. 17 of Curtis Pardue, No. 09 of Matthew Elledge and No. 98 of Rob Lewis finishing third through fifth.
