Raymond Noland, Kylie Conway Win   Dearl Noland Memorial At Rocky Hill
10/27/15 at 9:28pm
Threw together a couple articles for Rocky Hill Speedway.  For some reason, I thought I put the previous one up a couple weeks ago, but I probably just meant to.  So, I included that one after the current one.  

Raymond Noland, Kylie Conway Win Dearl Noland Memorial At Rocky Hill

With point racing done for the season, Saturday night signalled the start of the special race portion of the season at Rocky Hill Speedway in Porterville.  It started with a special race honoring Dearl Noland.  The Noland family has been a part of the racing tradition in Porterville for decades, and it was 2015 Hobby Stock champion Raymond Noland winning that division’s 20 lap Main Event.  The 20 lap Mini Stock feature saw a new winner in Top 5 Bakersfield point competitor Kylie Conway.  2015 champion Roy Atchison continued his domination in the Super 4 Mini Stock class with his tenth 20 lap win.  The American Stocks had enough cars to run their own 20 lap Main Event, and it was Trevor Baker picking up a win.  The popular Okie Bowl Hardtops were back to entertain the fans once again with James Bradburn getting the feature victory.

The Hobby Stocks had a few big names in the field to challenge Raymond Noland.  That included returning Modified veteran Charles Paul.  Paul gave it a good run, but he settled for second behind the flying R. Noland.  It was Noland’s fifth win of the season.  Steve Noland made his first start of the year and brought it home third ahead of Alvin Ince and Bakersfield competitor Brian Childress.  Hailing from Porterville, Kevin Collier spent the season winning the Bakersfield championship in dominating fashion, but he finished sixth in the Main Event ahead of the division debut of Clinton Massey, Cody Heinsohn and IMCA Stock Car competitor Rick Childress.

The Mini Stocks had a strong turnout with 14 cars starting the Main Event.  Bakersfield competitors swept the Top 3 at the checkered flag as Kylie Conway grabbed the win ahead of Shannon Triede and Misty Warren.  Shawn Schwartzenberger finished fourth and Robert Jackson returned to round out the Top 5.  Super 4 Mini Stock competitor Kit Murphy made his first Mini Stock start and finished sixth ahead of the division debut of Candy Noland-Soares.  Ken Shinarts, Bakersfield competitor Loni Spiller and Branson Trice rounded out the Top 10.  Third ranked Clinton Massey severely damaged his car in a hard crash in the Main Event.

Roy Atchsion’s amazing Super 4 Mini Stock season continued with another impressive feature victory.  Third ranked William Hughes’s quest for his first win of the season was thwarted once again as he settled for a division leading sixth second place finish.  Russell Silvas grabbed the final podium position.  Kit Murphy’s double division effort netted him a fourth place finish in the Super 4 feature as Steve Golden and Gary Meeks Jr. completed the finishing order.

Rocky Hill Speedway has remained committed to having an American Stock division, and low turnout has seen these drivers race with the Hobby Stocks most of the season.  However, five cars enabled them to have their own race this time.  Bakersfield point runnerup Trevor Baker held off fellow Bakersfield racer Nicholas Johnson to win the feature.  Ricky Lloyd finished third ahead of Mike Warren and Jake Daniels.

The Okie Bowl Hardtops have held most of their races at Rocky Hill Speedway this year and were thrilled to be a part of the Dearl Noland Memorial Race.  Having won earlier at both Rocky Hill and Bakersfield this season, James Bradburn won another Main Event ahead of previous winner Bobby Courtney and Rich Souza.  Josh Yadon finished fourth ahead of Tom Dugan, David Courtney and Jerry Hughes.

On November 7th, racing returns to Rocky Hill Speedway with Hobby Stocks, Mini Stocks, Super 4 Mini Stocks, American Stocks and a Mechanics Race.  On November 11th, it’s the Fourth Annual Veterans Day race with the same four divisions along with a Battle Of The Badges & Dignitaries Race.

The Previous race...

New Champions Noland, Atchison Score Rocky Hill Speedway Wins

Point racing for Rocky Hill Speedway in Porterville is done for the year, but the track has several races left to run through the end of November.  On Saturday night, newly crowned Hobby Stock champion Raymond Noland collected his fourth 20 lap Hobby Stock Main Event win.  Roy Atchison has been the dominant force in the Super Mini Stock division, and he won his ninth 20 lap Main Event.  Jason Cook returned to action and won his first 20 lap Mini Stock Main Event.

Michael Scruggs was back out to challenge for his second straight Hobby Stock feature win, but it was Raymond Noland running just a little stronger for the win.  Scruggs settled for second ahead of a respectable third place finish for Alvin Ince.  Joe Robinson has only competed in a handful of races in this his rookie season, and he matched his season best effort in forth as Bakersfield racer Brian Childress rounded out the Top 5.    Gene Clover finished sixth ahead of Mini Stock racer Shawn Schwartzenberger, Bakersfield champion Kevin Collier, Karl Noland and Cody Heinschn.

Only a second place finish in the previous race prevented Atchison from making it eight feature wins in a row as he collected another victory.  William Hughes enjoyed his fifth season best second place finish with Kit Murphy scoring his second season best third place finish.  2014 champion Adell Shelton settled for fourth ahead of Larry Ramirez and Gary Meeks.

Jason Cook won his first Mini Stock Main Event of the season.  Justin Moore was a season best second ahead of third ranked Clinton Massey, Brandon Trice and Shawn Schwartzenberger.
