30, 2018) Cruz
Skinner of Oxford, AL drove the Skinner Body Shop Rocket to his
first career Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series win
Saturday night in the 50-lap Salute To America main event at Boyd’s
Speedway. The 16-year-old driver with five years of Late Model experience
put it all together to outrun his mentor in his formative years
as a race car driver.
Three-time Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series National
Champion Ronnie Johnson of Chattanooga, TN made one of his well-known
late-race charges, but he couldn’t catch his student. By the
time Johnson got to the second spot on lap 40, Skinner had a full
straightaway lead. Johnson made up half the distance, but had to
settle for second in the Josh Roberts Trucking Special. |

Last Lap Pass Lifts
Earl Pearson, Jr. in Boyd's Speedway Thriller!
23, 2018) In
a battle between two former Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National
Champions, Earl Pearson Jr. passed Scott Bloomquist on the final
lap to win "The Shamrock" on Friday night at Boyd's Speedway.
Pearson started sixth, kept a steady pace for most of the race,
and then passed four cars in the final three laps to gain the victory.

Team and Ronnie Stuckey. (Heath
The polesitter, Chris Madden, led the first 25 laps until Bloomquist
forged ahead on lap 26. The entire 50 lap feature was run under
green flag conditions, with no caution flags. Bloomquist looked
to be in control of the race, looking for his first series win of
the season. Stretching his lead out over the field, Bloomquist easily
worked lapped cars, but Pearson had other ideas as the four-time
series champ readied himself before his last lap charge. |

Over Promoter Role at Boyd's Speedway for 2018!

Tennessee. She and track owner David Duplissey have agreed on a
lease type agreement for the 2018 season. Duplissey and Dale McDowell
are now removed themselves from the day to day operations of the
“I was hired on as marketing director in the
middle of last summer and I loved every minute of it. So when this
opportunity arose, I knew it was my next step. I’m sure there’s
going to be ups and downs, but no one wants Boyd's to succeed more
than myself,” Coulter stated. Her grandfather, E.A. Boyd,
is the track’s founder. “Racing is something that I
have always had a passion for. I have literally spent every weekend
of my life at a racetrack,” she laughed. “I have loved
working with the drivers and fans, as well as the Chattanooga community.
We had a few charity races and did some outreach and I would love
to do more of that this year. There will be some changes coming,
and hopefully the racers and fans will be happy with the adjustments.
I’m really honored to have this opportunity. There’s
probably only a handful of women promoters around, and I'm humbled
to join that very small group.” |
