Hickory Motor Speedway Results From Saturday, 6/15/24

The NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series returned to action Saturday at America’s Most Famous Short Track, Hickory Motor Speedway with 84 Lumber Night at the Races presented by All Fire Services.

The NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series Late Models would lead off the night with their first 40 lap feature of a doubleheader for the night. Michael Bumgarner in the #97 would top time trials and start from the pole position with Connor Mosack in the #28 to his outside. Landon Huffman in the #75 and Matthew Gould in the #27 would make up row two for the start. Bumgarner would pull to the early lead, but see Huffman charge hard to his inside in his bid for the top spot. Lap 5 would see Huffman move to the top spot and the #9 of Charlie Watson around Bumgarner for second. Watson would drive to the inside of Huffman and make the pass on lap 9. Bumgarner would follow Watson’s tracks and move around Huffman to second on lap 10. Thomas Beane in the #01 would start shotgun on the field but charge up to sixth position in the first half of the event. Watson, Bumgarner, Huffman, Mosack, and Gould would make up the top five at the halfway point. Bumgarner would glue himself to the rear bumper of Watson in his bid to regain the lead. Lap 28 would see the caution fly for the car of Skyler Chaney in the #17, who would spin in turn four. The restart would see Watson and Bumgarner bring the field to the restart. Watson would pull back to the lead with Bumgarner giving chase. The battle for third would be a four way skirmish between Huffman, Mosack, Gould, and Beane. Mosack would move into third with Beane close behind in fourth. Watson would drive on to take the win. Bumgarner would finish 2nd with Mosack taking 3rd. Beane would grab 4th and Gould would come home in 5th.

The Heritage Finance Street Stocks would roll off next for their 30 lap feature. Cody DeMarmels in the #53 would pace qualifying and start from the top spot with Johnny Reynolds in the #55 to his outside. Row two would see Trey Buff in the #48 and Jeff Morse in the #99 side by side for the start. DeMarmels would pull to the lead with Reynolds close behind. Morse would look under Reynolds for second and make the pass on lap 5. DeMarmels would use the side by side racing behind him to build a comfortable lead. Morse would start putting together consistently fast laps in his attempt to catch the leader. The handle would continue to go away on the Reynolds car as Buff would draw closer to his rear bumper in his bid for third position. DeMarmels would prove too strong on the night and drive on to take the win. Morse would finish 2nd with Reynolds holding on to 3rd. Buff would grab 4th and DJ Little in the #11 would come home in 5th.

Rolling off next would be the Paramount Auto Group Limited Late Models for their 35 lap feature. Trey Canipe in the #5 would top time trials and start from the pole position with Jordan McGregor in the #30 to his outside. Taylor Reimer in the #25 and Mark Goin in the #32 would make up row two for the start. Canipe would appear to nose ahead, but the end of lap 2 McGregor would roll to the lead in the high groove with Canipe close behind. Goin would see the #9 of William Aldred drive to his inside in his bid for fourth. Aldred would make the pass for fourth on lap 8 while Akinori Ogata in the #14 would drive to the bumper of Goin in his bid for fifth. The halfway point would see McGregor, Canipe, Reimer, Aldred, and Goin as the top five. Lap 20 would see Ogata make the pass around Goin for fifth. The caution would fly on lap 25 for a spin in turn two by Goin. The restart would see McGregor and Canipe bring the field to the green flag. Canipe would use the high lane to make the move around McGregor for the top spot. Ogata would look to the inside of Aldred for the fourth position and make the pass with four laps to go. Zachary Dabbs in the #23 would look to the inside of Aldred for fifth position in the closing laps. Canipe would drive on to the win. McGregor would finish 2nd while Reimer would take 3rd. Ogata would grab 4th and Dabbs would come home in 5th

The Renegades would roll off next for 20 laps of action. Gary Ledbetter in the #28 would pace qualifying and start from the top spot with Steve Smart in the #16 to his outside. Row two would see Matthew Chambers in the #81 and Justin Austin in the #1 side by side for the start. Smart would use the high line to drive to the lead with Ledbetter giving chase. Ledbetter would drive back around Smart to the lead on lap 3. The race for third would be interesting with Chambers and Austin swapping the position several times until Chambers would drop several spots as Austin and the #55 of Jordan Cook would both move around him for positions. Chambers would drive back around Cook for fourth in his bid to catch up to Austin once again for third. Ledbetter would drive on to the win. Smart would finish 2nd while Chambers would grab 3rd with a last lap pass for position. Austin would have to settle for fourth and Cook would come home in 5th.

Hitting the famed 3/8 mile oval next would be the Super Trucks for 35 laps. Joey Shuryan in the #30 would top time trials and start from the pole position with Ricky Dennie in the #8 to his outside. Jamie Johnson in the #88 would make up row two for the start. Dennie would use the high lane to move around Shuryan for the top spot. Shuryan would settle in behind Dennie and run consistent laps, waiting for his opportunity to pounce and regain the lead. While the lead would shrink over the closing laps, Dennie would prove too tough on the night and drive on to the win. Shuryan would finish 2nd and Johnson would come home in 3rd.

The Crown Vics would be on the schedule for a 15 lap affair, but after several recent races attrition would thin the herd and the #0 of Jacob Hayes. Hayes was leading the last event at Hickory Motor Speedway and had won recently in the division at other tracks. The race would be shortened to 5 laps as Hayes would take the green and, soon after, the checkers for the win.

Closing out the night’s racing action would be the second 40 lap feature for the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series Late Models. After an 8 car invert from the finishing order of race one, Clark Houston in the #6 and Regina Sirvent in the #4 would make up the front row. Landon Huffman in the #75 and Matt Gould in the #27 would make up row two for the green flag. Houston would pull to the lead and bring Huffman with him to second. Thomas Beane in the #01 would look under Sirvent for the third position. Beane would take the third position and look immediately to the inside of Huffman for second. Beane would take the second position from Huffman on lap 9 as Bumgarner and Watson would quickly challenge Huffman for third. Beane would drive to the bumper of Houston in his bid for the top spot. Lap 21 would see Beane move around Houston for the top spot. Bumgarner and Watson would drive to Houston’s bumper and look to pass for second. Lap 25 would see Bumgarner move to second and Watson to third. Beane would have clear sailing ahead of him as Bumgarner and Watson would turn up the wick in their attempt to catch the leader. But Beane would have enough left in reserve to withstand the challenge and drive on to take the win. Bumgarner would finish 2nd and Watson would take 3rd. Houston would grab 4th and Mosack would come home in 5th.
