Mark Whitener dominates the field in a new Longhorn Chassis to increase his UDLMCS Lead!


(9-17-16) The United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series (UDLMCS) made its second and final stop of the 2016 racing season on Saturday night at Volusia Speedway Park. Mark Whitener came into the event with a 50 point lead over last years champion Kyle Bronson. Whitener had a golden opportunity to open that gap with the absence of Bronson who was attending the Late Model version of the Knoxville Nationals in IA. Whitner would do just that in dominating fashion destroying the 15 car field by nearly a half a track over Keith Nosbisch.
Whitener started off the night posting the second fastest lap overall which would start him on the outside front row of Heat Race #1 along side the Big Frog Motorsports #58 of Devin Dixon, who was also the fastest Qualifier in his XR1 Rocket Chassis. When the green flag dropped in the heat race Dixon would jump out to the early lead and run away with the win as Whitener would come home in the second spot.
When the feature hit the track, Dixon would jump out to the early lead, but it was Whitener who put on a show on the extreme high line blowing by Dixon just before the 15 lap mark and dominating the rest of the way. Dixon settled into second spot, but broke an engine past the half way point ending his night. Keith Nosbisch would cross the line in the runner up spot nearly 12 seconds behind the dominate Whitener. Tyler Crowder, Donnie Chappell, and Rhett Carter would round out the top five.

(September 17, 2016) - The silence told the tale, but left Garrett Lloyd wanting more. The last time out was the first time with the Jacksonville, Fla. driver's new Limited Late Model ride. It was dominant until he shut it down due to mechanical problems with a huge feature lead. Saturday evening was a complete 180. The car was dominant again and this time stayed together as Lloyd won the Super 5 Challenge feature at Golden Isles Speedway. Lloyd picked up $2,000 for the victory over a stout field of Limiteds. Earlier in the season he took an EMod SC5 win.
The Tom Kelly Construction/P&G Land Clearing machine also was wheeled to fast time and the only competitor in the 16 second bracket. Previous winner Ryan Carter came next. SC5 series leader Scott Waters, Cecil Eunice and Lonnie Waters rounded out the top five.
Bud Chancey made it two straight EMod SC5 wins and $1,500 checks. The Yulee, Fla. native won the 20-lap finale, holding off Frankie Lloyd, Trey Pearson, Nick Kirkus and Randy Gainey. Chancey took over the SC5 series lead outright as former co-leader Chase Collins settled for a 14th place finish.
Brian Wooten continued the magical season with another NeSmith Performance Street Stock SC5 feature win and the $2,000 that went with it. The Brunswick, Ga. ace had already clinched the regular season track championship. This victory wrapped up the SC5 Series title as well. Donnie Ashford, fast qualifier Shaun Washam, Chris Keller and Robert Hicks followed in the next to last tune up before the NPSS World Championship at GIS October 14-15

KNOXVILLE, IOWA (September 17, 2016) – Mike Marlar led the final 60 laps of the 100 lap Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals - capturing the biggest win of his career. Marlar earned $40,000 for the victory in Saturday Night’s 13th Annual Event in the Ronnie Delk Racing/Delk Equipment Sales/Cornett Racing Engines/Capital Race Car.
The current Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series points leader, Scott Bloomquist finished in second. Bobby Pierce came home in third; Shane Clanton and Billy Moyer completed the top five.
Jimmy Owens led the first ten laps of the race until Josh Richards took over the top spot. Richards then lead until lap 39 when Marlar powered to the point from his fourth starting position. Marlar held off Bloomquist and Richards the rest of the way for the win. Richards slowed with five laps to go and headed pitside, giving up a podium finish.
“It’s a good life, it’s awesome to win here,” said the 38-year-old Marlar in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. Knoxville [Raceway] is one of my favorite tracks, if not my favorite to race at. It can scare you to death, but it’s awesome! I knew Bloomquist was on me. When he pulled alongside me a few times and got by I just let the car go up top and it stuck.”
