Weaver returns home for a win

CROSSVILLE — While Saturday brought somewhat cooler weather, the racing action was hot, hot, hot at Crossville Raceway.

In the Late Model division, 24 drivers signed in for an action-packed night. Perry Delaney set the fast time in qualifying, with a season-low lap of 13.12 around the historic 1/3-mile clay oval. Chris Wilson was second, Joe Cline was third, Randy Weaver was fourth and Jesse Lowe fifth in the qualifying lap.

After qualifying, Delaney rolled a six, meaning the six-car Hoosier Dash would be inverted.

In the Hoosier Late Model Dash, Buddy Knox took the win with Lowe finishing second and Weaver coming in third.

Robby Reagan took the win in the first Late Model heat race, followed by Scott Shelton, second, and Lynn Selby, third. Ruben Mayfield grabbed the win in the second Late Model heat race, followed by Kenny Cobble, second, and Mark Hayden finishing third. The top two cars in the Late Model Last Chance race advanced to the feature. Those were winner Rickey Lewis and second-place finisher Dustin Golden.

The 30-lap feature started with Knox moving into the lead, followed by weaver, Wilson, Lowe and Cline. On lap 4, Wilson got by Weaver for second, but Weaver returned the favor on lap 10, passing Wilson for second.

Lap 14 saw Cline get by Lowe for fourth. Weaver would power by Knox for the lead on lap 18. Wilson scooted by Knox for a second on lap 24. Cline got by Knox on lap 25 for third.

Business picked up in the front as Wilson started putting pressure on Weaver. Weaver, running the high side of the track, held Wilson off and took the win. Wilson was second, followed by Cline in third, Knox finishing fourth and Lowe completing the top five. Finishing sixth through tenth were Reagan, Shelton, Delaney, Cobble and Andy Picklesimer.

In Street Stock action, Reagan Williams won the heat race and the 20-lap feature started with Williams powering in to the lead. He kept the lead until lap three when something on his ride broke and he turned right toward the turn two outside wall. Williams then turned left and came back down the track into traffic, clipping John Ross. Ross rolled his car violently two to three times before it came to a stop on its top. After a few minutes, Ross emerged from his car unhurt.

The race restarted with Jason Savage at the point. He would lead the remaining seven laps to win the time-shortened race. This was Savage's sixth win of the year at the track. Clint Carter finished second, Jeff Savage came in fourth, Dwayne Hutcheson followed at fourth and Shane Hancock completed the top five.

Cody Rector and Nick Adams won the heat races in the Front Runner class. Rector grabbed the lead at the start of the 20-lap feature, followed by Adams and Stephen Conley. Adams put pressure on Rector from the beginning. On lap 4, Lucas Presley moved by Conley for third and he got by Adams for second on lap 13. Immediately, Presley began putting a great amount of pressure on Rector. On lap 14, Nathan Adams slipped by Conley for fourth. Rector and Presley were putting on one heck of a race up front as they were racing side by side around the whole track. Rector held Presley off, picking up his second win in a row. Presley was a close second, followed by Nick Adams at third, Nathan Adams in fourth and Daniel Sizemore rounding out the top five.

The Mini Stock class saw Paul Ramsey take the heat race win. He grabbed the lead at the started of the 20-lap feature, followed by Dustin Halbrooks in second and Jason Qualls in third. On lap 9, Halbrooks took over the lead from Ramsey. One lap later, Qualls would get by Ramsey for second. On lap 11, Halbrooks spun while leading, which brought out the caution and Halbrooks was sent to the rear of the field. This gave the lead to Qualls, who lead the remaining nine laps for his fifth win of the year. Halbrook made his way back to the front to finish second. Ramsey was third followed by Tony Lewis at fourth and Dustin Benton rounding out the top five.

In the Junior Hornet Class, Kelly Morton picked up her fourth feature win of the year. Carlie Mullinax finished at second followed by Kenzie Kirkland in third. Kane Pelfrey finished in fourth. Morton also won the heat race.

Mike Selby swept the A-Hobby class, winning the heat race and the 15-lap feature. Dean Travis was a distant second with Jeff Cotterman in third and Joey Whittenburg at fourth.

Saturday, Crossville Raceway will have a full racing program and the Powder Puff race. Visit for more details.
