Eddie and Layne Triumph in Back-2-Back Races
Saturday August 4th would turn out to be special for a father and son, Eddie Rogers and Layne Pullium. The Joe’s Value Construction Late Model oval program started with journeyman Gary Bedell setting quick time in qualifications at 13.308 seconds. Casey White won the trophy dash while RJ Norton Jr and Zach Catron earned heat races victories. The 25-lap Late Model oval main saw Rogers work his way past point leader Doug Greig to win his second career division triumph. The reigning rookie-of-the-year saw Doug and veteran Steve Frost in his mirror at the checkered flag. Just minutes before this race was the Junior Hornet feature where Pulliam grabbed the prize. Layne had pressure the entire distance from June champion Jordan Hahn and July king Andrew Teepe. Pullium had entered the evening still seeking his initial victory of any kind at the Speedrome. By nights end, he would have a heat and that coveted first feature trophy on his shelf. It was a special time when father and son, Eddie Rogers and Layne Pullium won features back-2-back.
Hahn Mission Ends with Both Winning This Weekend
Another father/son successful weekend started on Friday for the younger part of the duo. Jordan Hahn, the first-ever Junior Hornet division champion back in June, kept his August winning ways by taking home the preliminary contest as well as the feature. The main event win was his fourth career and second straight. Andrew Teepe was the runner-up in both Friday races. Third was Justin Green’s in the feature and Layne Pulliam’s in the heat. Jordan’s dad Larry accomplished a matched feat on Saturday, but on the Stock class Figure 8 course. It was also a checkered flag duel with a Teepe, Andrew’s dad Speedy. The pair split heat victories after qualifications were lost due to damp track conditions. The Figure 8 main was wild and crazy. After leader Christopher Green and Nigel Peters tangled, Larry patiently moved to first and held off his rival for his second crossover triumph of 2012. Jeffrey Allen Smith was third.
Daytona Racing Adds 3 More Wins to 2012 War Chest
There were two oval features and one Figure 8 over the course of the weekend. And all of the main event victory lane photos were taken of team Daytona drivers. Fridays first competition was in a heat with rookie Jim Bullock winning over Allen Hargraves and Cody Shumaker. The 20-lapper saw Bullock’s quest for a first win come one spot short when June champion Junior Lemasters swept past for victory. Son Shumaker was third. The Saturday torch was turned over to teammate Don VanValkenburg III. DVV3 was well rested after taking Friday off. This was the first Speedrome racing “vacation” in 3 years for the Ironman racer. He would go on to punish the competition winning both heats and features in oval and Figure 8 disciplines. The Daytona Racing sweeping motion continued as team driver Shumaker was runner-up in all four contests. Josh Reel was third in both crossover clashes while Bullock and Brittany Dailey split oval podium slots.
