WEAVER TRI-FECTA OVER MADDEN RJ &
TN (7/29/2014) In what can only be described as the biggest crowd ever
at Boyd'sSpeedway, the Schaeffers Oil: Southern Nationals Series presented
by Old Mans Garage was a huge success Tuesday night with NASCAR drivers
Ty & Austin Dillon. With over 90 racecars, four divisions of competition and
a packed general admssion grand stand area, racers from 9-states and 1-country
(Australia) the night of action was jam pack as even four lucky fans received
Rides of a Lifetime during a brief intermission. Crossville, Tennessee's Randy
THE DREAM Weaver won in dominating fashion his third straight SLM event, picking
up the nights $3,500 payday of 36-other top teams. In the local divisions, Red
Bank's Jimmy Smith won the B-Hobby, Booger Brooks of Chattanooga win the A-Hobby
and Harrison's Brian Pritchard won the time shortened Crate LM feature.
Weaver led flag-to-flag for the $3,500 victory, his
sixth career and third on the tour this season on Tuesday Night at Boyds
Speedway in front of a record crowd. Weaver came to victory lane while driving
the Outlaws Race Parts, The Bailey Company, Precision One Trailer Parts and VP
Fuels sponsored Cornett Engines Longhorn Chassis. Weaver took the jump on the
start of the 35-lapper and took to the point with Austin Dillon, Chris Madden
and Ronnie Johnson in tow.
early battle for second spot between Dillon and Madden allowed Weaver to stretch
out a commanding lead on the field of 23. By lap eight, Weaver would work his
way around lapped traffic while battle was heating up between Dillon, Johnson
and Madden. By lap 23, Johnson would work the low side of the track and take the
third spot from Madden but with six laps to go, Madden pulled the slider on Johnson
for second and held on to the end.
yellows slowed the field. On lap ten, Ty Dillon spun around in turn two. The final
caution on lap 21 would wave as Dylan Ames slowed going into turn one. Weaver
was all smiles in Victory Lane. Gotta thank the Lord, hes been way
too good to me, I dont deserve any of it, everything we do is for him, and
Ive not always been that way but Im sure glad Im that way now,
stated an emotional Weaver with his father alongside in victory lane for the third
time this season.
gotta thank this crew, Im telling you, Grant and Josh, probably two of the
most underrated guys in the pits, and it dont matter if it is in the Lucas
(Series) pits or here, everybody is a good group of guys to race with, anytime
you can run with (Ronnie) Johnson down here, that (Chris) Madden, Im telling
you hes tough everywhere, I just cant believe that were having this
much success, stated Weaver.
went on to thank his supporters. I gotta thank all my sponsors,
Ohlins Shocks, Hoosier Tire, that Ford-powered Cornett, that thing was
so drive-able, but has horsepower when you need it, and Longhorn Chassis, that
Kevin Rumley texted me before we hot lapped, to him its just like putting
a puzzle together, to me I dont understand it, but he tells us what to do
and we do it, we go out and try to win races and luckily weve been doing
win at Boyds Speedway Tuesday Night has been a culmination of victories
with various sanctions going back to the first win July 11th at Smoky Mountain
Speedway during an Ultimate-sanctioned event to Tuesday where he picked up his
sixth victory in a row. Weavers momentum has come along in recent weeks
and attributes his fathers health as a big factor. My dad is feeling
better and gotta thank God for that, anytime hes going good, and coming
by the shop and kind of straightening us out when were doing it wrong, that
makes a big difference, chuckled Weaver.
Johnson of Chattanooga, Tenn. was the highest finishing Steel Head Late Model
in the field and received a $200 cash bonus for his third place finish and Riley
Hickman of Cleveland, Tenn. received the Spec. Engine Bonus and $200
cash for that award finishing sixth in the main event.
