Katie Hagar and GS Racing team put together another good effort Saturday night at Madera. Practice had Katie 3rd on the board and she qualified 2nd fast in a solid field of cars. The 50 lap Feature had Katie racing in 3rd place much of the way however late in the event the #90 car blew-up as he and Katie entered turn three. With oil everywhere they both crashed. While major clean up on the track was going, on the GS crew patched up the car and Katie was able to make it back out on the track, finishing the race on the lead lap in 7th position. A good solid night with all that happened. We will be back at Madera next weekend for “Twin 50’s”…hope to see some of you there.

LATE MODEL ROOKIE TAKES 95 FEATURE EVENT
 
He had never driven a Late Model race car until a Friday practice session, but Hermon’s Mike Hopkins is evidently a quick learner as he won his first outing in the new division on Sunday by winning the qualifier, then led the field from start to finish in the feature event. The event went smoothly, with only a couple of single car incidents causing the yellow flag to fly until a lap 17 melee on the front stretch scattered the field. Winterport’s Joey Doyon and Liberty’s Josh St.Clair, who were running second and third, came together while racing for position and spun in front of the field.

CHARLOTTE, NC (April 21) –   Durham, North Carolina’s Jay Fogleman has spent more nights than he can count over the years racing and winning at Orange County Speedway.  After all, it is where he began his racing career in 1982 and is located in Rougemont just a few miles from where he lives.  But, in all the races Fogleman has competed in at Orange County, perhaps he has never looked forward to an event like this weekend’s 4th Annual Orange Blossom Special.  Fogleman will return after a long absence from Orange County Speedway on Saturday night to battle the best field of Super Late Model drivers in the country.  Over the better part of the last decade, Fogleman has been a regular in the USAR Pro Cup Series and has not had the chance to compete at Orange County.  After finishing third in Pro Cup points in 2008, Fogleman has made the switch to the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model division and will have the opportunity to race twice at Orange County this year.  In a limited PASS South schedule in 2008, Fogleman managed to win one race and has elected to go for the PASS South championship in 2009.  Although the season has gotten off to a slow start with Fogleman stuck in 15th place in the PASS South point standings after two races, many look to Orange County as the place that the veteran can turn it around.  Nobody racing in the Orange Blossom Special has as much experience at Orange County as Fogleman does.  And, Fogleman will not be the only driver with local ties to Orange County looking to defend the home turf.
