Hemric, Rayhall and Beebe Return to Their Winning Ways During Round Nine of the Summer Shootout Series
Multi-round division winners Daniel Hemric, Sean Rayhall and Ray Beebe returned to Victory Lane during round nine of the Kangaroo Express Summer Shootout Series at Charlotte Motor Speedway. John Sossoman, Ryan Shattuck and Tate Fogleman were also among Tuesday night’s feature winners.
In the Legend Cars Pro division, Hemric led all 20 laps of the feature en route to victory. There were three cautions in the first ten laps but the final ten laps of the event were marked by green-flag racing and complete dominance by Hemric, who also took home the unprecedented $250,000 top prize in the Legends Million at Charlotte Motor Speedway in July. The win was Hemric’s second of the 2010 Summer Shootout season. Finishing second was Steven Ross, of Stanfield, N.C., and in third place was Kyle Plott, of Marietta, Ga.
In the Young Lions division, Rayhall, of Winston, Ga., was victorious for the fourth time this season. After starting in the fifth position, Rayhall raced his way to the front of the field, passing pole sitter Brady Boswell on Lap 9 of the 19-lap feature.
Boswell, of Watkinsville, Ga., stayed in Rayhall’s rearview mirror but couldn’t reclaim the lead. Boswell settled for a second place finish in the multi-caution race. Josh Morris, of Fredericksburg, Va., trailed Boswell, crossing the stripe in the third spot.
Beebee, of York, S.C., scored two wins in one night after taking the victory in both the feature postponed by rain from the previous week and in the round nine Bandolero Bandits division race.
Jeffrey Abbey started the round nine event from the pole position, but following a caution for a multi-car spin on the first lap, Beebe quickly assumed the lead. After a caution for debris at the midway point of the 20-lap feature, Beebe led the single-file restart and never looked back, maintaining the lead for the final 10 laps. Layton Sullivan, from Gaffney, S.C., finished second and Abbey, from Comanche, Texas, finished third.
Other feature winners included Sossoman, of New London, N.C., in the Legend Car Masters division; Jake Morris, of Fredericksburg, Va., in the Legend Car Pull-A-Part Semi-Pro division; Shattuck, of Islamorada, Fla., in the Bandolero Outlaws division; and Fogleman, of Durham, N.C., in the Bandolero Beginner Bandits division.
In the first of three Bandolero features postponed by rain from the previous week, Shattuck was victorious in the Bandolero Outlaws division race. Other postponed races were won by Beebe in the Bandolero Bandits division and Noah Corrman, of Palm Coast, Fla., in the Bandolero Beginner Bandits division.
Legend Car drivers ruled the night in the school bus slobberknocker, as Tyler Green emerged victorious. Finishing in the second position was Hemric’s behemoth racing machine and coming home in third was Sossoman.
The 17th annual Kangaroo Express Summer Shootout Series concludes Tuesday night, Aug. 10, with Championship Night at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Champions will be crowned in each of the six racing divisions as the 10-week series comes to a close.
