Arthur Holds Off Franklin for $15,000 FASTRAK World Championship Victory at Virginia Motor Speedway; Becomes Twelfth Different Winner of Event



by Dave Seay
JAMAICA, VA (September 19) – The last six laps of the 12th Annual FASTRAK World Championship presented by James River Equipment was worth the price of admission alone. Home town favorite Walker Arthur of Forest, VA held off 2013 World Champion and Super Late Model standout Dennis “Rambo” Franklin of Gaffney, SC for the $15,000 victory and the title of World Champion. Arthur became the twelfth different winner of the event in its twelve year history. The win was a career best effort for Arthur.

“I hated to cut Rambo off; on that last restart I heard him digging down there so I had to steal that line or he was going to beat me coming to the white flag. I hated to do it but I believe he would have done it to me; I’m not sure but I think he would have,” commented and excited and laughing Arthur in victory lane.

Rounding out the top five were Franklin, Matt Long, 2014 Champion Tim Dohm and Dillon Brown.

Walker Arthur and Mark Parks led the 24 car field to green with Parks take the lead out of turn 4. Ove the next four laps Arthur tried high and low to get by Parks, each time Parks slammed the door to hold on to the lead. On Lap five the battle for second went three wide in turns 1 and 2 with Arthur rocketing around to the outside of Parks and Kenny Compton, Jr to briefly take the lead. As the two drove into turn 4 Compton slid under Arthur to grab the lead at the line. On lap 11 the races first caution flew for a slowing Jensen Ford in turn 2.

On the double file restart Arthur swept out of turn 2 with the lead and began to pull away. On lap 21 Dennis Franklin got by Compton for second and caught Arthur in traffic just as caution flew for Daniel Baggerly with a mechanical failure in turn 2. The car making a move to the front and maybe the fastest car on the track other than Arthur was Matt Long who had worked his way to third from a eighth starting position.



By lap 40 Arthur had worked his lead out to a 4-car length advantage over Franklin and Long. Behind them Tim Dohm and Tyler Bare battled for fourth. With ten to go Arthur held a six car-length advantage over Franklin. With the laps winding down Franklin worked every groove on the track to try and close on the leader. On lap 51 Arthur began to run into slower traffic allowing Franklin and Long to close on his bumper.

On lap 54, caution would fly first for a spin by night one winner Corey Gordon in turn 4 and then on the restart it flew one more time when Rick Williams had an engine expire on the front stretch. On the races final restart Franklin jumped to the inside of Arthur heading into three. The two raced side by side back to the line for the next four laps with Arthur holding the lead by inches. With the crowd at its feet Arthur and Franklin dove back into turn three door to door. Heading into turn 4 Arthur cut off Franklin’s line coming out of turn 4 to the white. The move was just enough to keep Franklin on his rear quarter panel and go on to take the win by ,484 seconds.

Rounding out the top ten were Franklin, Matt Long, 2014 Champion Tim Dohm, Dillon Brown, Tyler Bare, Ron Parker, Mark Parks, TJ Salango and Ryan Montgomery.

Heat race winners were Walker Arthur, Mark Parks, Dennis Franklin and Kenny Compton Jr.

B-Main winners were Aaron Barley and Corey Gordon.

Corey Gordon Cashes in Big with $5000 Fastrak World Challenge Victory on Opening Night of Fastrak World Championship at Virginia Motor Speedway

by Dave Seay
JAMAICA, VA (September 18) – Corey Gordon's day didn’t start out as he planned, breaking a drive shaft in practice. But his performance from that point on was absolutely flawless. Gordon won his heat and then went on to score the biggest win of his young career. Gordon of Charlotte, NC took command of the event on the opening lap of the 40 lap Fastrak World Challenge from his outside starting position and then survived several intense restarts with David Smith of Inman, SC to take the $5000 World Challenge victory on the opening night of the Fastrak World Championship presented by James River Equipment at Virginia Motor Speedway.

“I wanted to just pack up and go home after breaking the drive shaft earlier in the day; I have to thank Teddy Tate for helping with another drive shaft. I can’t believe we are here in victory lane after the day we have had, I have to thank God first of all and my crew for working so hard to get us here,” commented Gordon in victory lane.

David Smith and Corey Gordon led the 24 car field to green with Gordon rocketing to the lead with Smith flowing in second. On lap 8 the races first caution would fly for a spin by Jimmy Duncan in turn 4. Several cautions followed on restarts slowing the action. On the lap 10 restart action went three wide with Smith, Daniel Baggerly and Matt Long battling for the second spot. Several cautions closed the field on Gordon’s bumper but on each restart he was able to pull away from the battle for second.

On lap 18 the battle for third heated up as Baggerly worked to keep Long at bay. The two raced side by side the next two laps before Long would get by out of turn 4. Once in third, Long set out to catch Smith who was trying to keep pace with Gordon who was setting a blistering pace.

On lap 32 Long caught Smith in turn 3 and the two began a side by side back and forth battle for second. With Smith and Long battling for second Gordon was able to stretch out his lead and go on to the $5000 victory. The win was Gordon’s biggest win of his career.

Heat race winners were David Smith, Corey Gordon, Aaron Barley and Ron Parker.

B-Main winners were Kenny Compton Jr. and Mark Parks.
