McCarter Wins Chevy Super Series Survival of the Fittest at East Alabama

PHENIX CITY AL – Pierce McCarter TN did what three drivers that ran in front of him didn’t do early in the race, and that was stay in the lead and win the 50-lap Chevrolet Performance Super Late Model Series portion of the 36th Annual Alabama State Championship Race on Saturday night at East Alabama Motor Speedway driving the McCarter Brothers Racing CVR.

Jeff Smith, Chris Madden and Donald Brasher ran in front of McCarter early in the race, but they were all out of the event by lap 11, and McCarter took over the lead.  

“We were riding along there and Jeff Smith dropped out, then Brasher was gone, and then Madden pulled up,” McCarter said. “That gave me the lead and I was wondering if I needed to be there because I didn’t want to be next.  We have a good race car because my brother drove it to a win two weeks ago in Tazewell (TN), so it’s my first win in this series and the car’s second.” 

Montana Dudley was another driver that took advantage of the high attrition as he drove the Dale’s Quick Lube Rocket to a second-place finish.  Tim Busha rounded out the podium in the Kilpatrick Racing GRT.

Knowles was able to close to within 20 points of the Chevrolet Performance Super Late Model Series point leader Ronnie Johnson with one race left in the 2014 season.  Johnson was involved in a multi-car tangle on a lap four restart and the damage to his NeSmith Chevrolet Special resulted in a 19th-place finish.

The next event for the Chevrolet Performance Super Late Model Series will be the 2014 season finale at Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga AL with the $6,000-to-win 2nd Annual Dega 100. (Chevrolet Performance Super Late Model Series)

Las Vegas Camping World Truck Wrap: Mason Mingus


Mason Mingus
Mason Mingus
LAS VEGAS NV - Billy Boat Motorsports made its NASCAR Camping World Series debut with rookie driver Mason Mingus at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Saturday.  The #15 Call 811 Before You Dig Chevrolet Silverado started 22nd and earned a top-20 finish after taking the checkered flag in 18th-position.

Mingus transferred out of the first round of qualifying but did not score a time in the second round as the red flag was displayed due to an accident while Mingus was attempting his run.  This resulted in a 22nd-place starting position for the Brentwood TN native.  When the green flag dropped for the 146-lap race, the #15 was extremely loose and ultimately made a clean spin on lap 2.  Mingus came down pit road for adjustments, but still battled a loose-handling truck while working in traffic. 

By lap 100, the 19-year-old had worked his way into the top 15, running faster laps than the cars he was chasing down.  On lap 112, Mingus, who was scored in the top 10, brought his truck to pit road under the green flag for a scheduled pit stop for fresh tires and fuel.  Unfortunately, a loose lug nut forced him to make another stop on pit road, causing him to go four laps down. 

“It was a hard-fought night by everyone at Billy Boat Motorsports.  We battled handling issues and a mistake on pit road, but never gave up.  I’m thankful for the support from Call 811 Before You Dig and Diamond Equipment during my first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Las Vegas.   We’ll keep learning and come back even stronger at Talladega in a few weeks.”

Up next for Mingus is the Fred’s 250 Powered by Cola-Cola at Talladgea Superspeedway on Saturday, October 18th. (Billy Boat Motorsports)
