_______________________________________Conley Motorsports, Inc. Records Trio of Top Tens Over Busy Weekend in KY & OH
WHEELERSBURG, OH (April 23) - All four Conley Motorsports, Inc. drivers were in Dirt Late Model competition over the April 17-19 weekend at a trio of different venues in the states of Kentucky and Ohio. On Thursday night, the Old Man's Garage Spring Nationals tour rolled into 201 Speedway in Sitka, Kentucky and Rod, R.J., and J.T. Conley were all in attendance to vie for the $4,000 top prize. Rod timed in fourth quickest during the qualifying session, but later slipped back to finish tenth in the final rundown of the 40-lapper. While R.J. unfortunately missed out on the feature event, his son J.T. grabbed the fourth and final transfer spot through his consolation race prior to being paid for eighteenth at the pay window at the end of the night.
On Saturday evening, Rod and his #71r team followed the OMG Spring Nationals to the venerable Florence Speedway in Union, Kentucky for the 38th edition of the 'Spring 50.' "Hot Rod" ran fourth in heat race action at the 1/2-mile facility and later improved six positions during the $5,000 to win A-Main en route to a respectable twelfth place effort.
Delmas and R.J. Conley, on the other hand, ventured to the nearby Southern Ohio Speedway in Wheelersburg, Ohio on Saturday for the track's season opening event, which paid $3,000 to the winner. Delmas ran third in his stacked heat race, but later put on a show in the unsanctioned main event. The Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer moved all the way up to second to finish a strong runner-up behind only victor Jackie Boggs. R.J. won his heat race in preliminary action at SOS and was running second near the halfway point of the race when mechanical issues (broken rear end) dropped the Wheelersburg native to an eighth place performance. Complete results from all of these races can be accessed online at www.southernnationalsseries.com
Each of the four Conley Motorsports, Inc. drivers will return to action this upcoming weekend (April 25-26) in southern Ohio. Delmas and Rod Conley are slated to invade the nearby Southern Ohio Speedway in Wheelersburg, Ohio on Friday for a $2,000 to win program. Then on Saturday, Delmas, Rod, R.J., and J.T. are all scheduled to descend upon Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio for a regular weekly AMRA showdown, which boasts a $1,500 payday.
