Beau Slocumb's Camouflaged Car Can't Hide
Even with a camouflaged car, the crowd could see Beau Slocumb was dialed in as he romped to victory in the 20-lap run for the Tom Johnson Camping Center Legends Car Pro division. The Juliette, Ga., driver traded the lead numerous times with Cliff Daniels before taking control four laps from the checkered flag. Daniels settled for second followed by pole-sitter Jason Reisman in a caution-free race.
Green, whose uncles David and Jeff have both won the NASCAR Busch Series title, started from the pole in the Cabarrus Family Medicine Bandolero Young Guns event and was never seriously challenged. The Concord, N.C., driver beat Devon Haun and Daniel Hemric to the stripe.
Andrew Rogers of Charlotte, N.C., lined up eighth, took the lead on lap three and held off opening night winner Michael Van Wingerden to win the 20-lap feature for the Quaker Steak & Lube Thunder Roadsters. Van Wingerden tried several inside moves during the closing laps, but had to settle for second with Ryan Zeck nipping David Sugg for third.
Scooter Hillis of Lebanon, Tenn., wasn¿t monkeying around has he stormed to a convincing victory in the 20-lap feature for the Raceape.com Legends Car feature. Hillis lined up third in the 28-car field, took the lead on lap three and won by a full straightaway as the event was slowed by only one caution flag. Jess Mattox topped a torrid battle for second with Andrew Rogers taking third when Daniel Sossoman spun on the final lap.
In a bizarre race that saw point leader Johnny Sossoman start 17th, take the lead, then finish as the last car running; veteran Clay Hair of Concord, N.C., prevailed in a caution-filled feature for the Holiday Inn University Legends Car Masters division.
Sparks began to fly on lap one when a multi-car wreck at the start-finish line sent three drivers to the garage including outside pole-sitter Chris Carlsen. When the dust cleared, Wayne Whaley and Brian Wiemer followed Hair under the checkered flag as the race was shortened to 16 laps due to time constraints.
In the 20-lap main for the TopChoice for Fire Ants Bandolero Bandits, Zachary Stroupe of Iron Station, N.C., took the lead on lap two and went on to secure his second consecutive victory in the division for racers ages 8 to 11. Ryan Glenski finished second with Mitchell Coble settling for show honors.
After finishing last on opening night, Bruce Benson II of Lexington, N.C., bounced back to win the 20-lap feature for the Premise Termite Elimination Bandolero Outlaws division. Benson started from the pole and went wire-to-wire in beating Tina Johnson and Chris Morgan in the division for drivers ages 16 and up.
In an event that was more like a demolition derby than a race, Ken Deese of Monroe, N.C., topped the 14-lap feature for the Road Hawg division. Deese expertly weaved his way through several spins and accidents to score the victory in the Road Hawg¿s Hardee¿s Summer Shootout debut. Randy Smith finished second with Chris James third in the new division for strictly-stock cars.
There will be fireworks on and off the track during round three of the Hardee¿s Summer Shootout Tuesday night, June 29. In addition to the regular racing divisions, Bayer Environmental Science will present a giant Fireworks extravaganza to kick off the Independence Day celebration. One-on-One Spectator Races are also on tap.
