Cory Hedgecock Hustles to First Career Spring Nationals Win in Inaugural Tennessean at 411

(March 11, 2023) Cory Hedgecock, of nearby Loudon, Tennessee, added to his impressive list of accomplishments at 411 Motor Speedway on Saturday afternoon, as he emerged victorious in the inaugural ‘Tennessean’ at the Seymour, Tennessee facility! Cory, who started the day by earning the Boyd Bilt “Smashing the Clock Award” with his fastest lap overall in hot laps, later timed in sixth quickest in Group A during the qualifying session before placing second in his heat race. After starting the 71-lap Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series presented by Coltman Farms Racing headliner from the inside of the fourth row, Cory moved up through the top five before eventually grabbing the point from racelong leader Dale McDowell on lap 39.

From there it was all Hedgecock, as he kept his #23 mount in front of the talented field throughout the remainder of the contest to bag the whopping $15,000 first place prize money. Canadian Ricky Weiss advanced four positions to finish second - 1.375 seconds behind Hedgecock - while Jensen Ford rounded out the podium in third after starting the “Tennessean’ from the inside of the fifth row.

Spring Nationals Stop at North Georgia Speedway Washed Out; 411 Still on as Scheduled

(March 8, 2023) Projected heavy rainfall across northern Georgia on Thursday leading into Friday has unfortunately washed out the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series presented by Coltman Farms Racing debut at North Georgia Speedway on March 10. The ‘Biddle Ridley Memorial’ was slated to shell out a $7,553 payday on Friday evening and while a suitable rain date is being explored, a reschedule date is not available at this time. If the series is unable to visit the historic Chatsworth, Georgia oval this year, promoter Ray Cook looks forward to working with North Georgia Speedway next season.

While Friday’s stop for the Spring Nationals tour has been rained-out, the $15,000 to win ‘Tennessean’ on Saturday afternoon, March 11 at 411 Motor Speedway is still on as scheduled. Other classes on the racing card include 604 Late Model ($1,500 to win), Sportsman ($1,000 to win), 602 Late Model ($800 to win), Classic ($500 to win), FWD ($500 to win), and Crown Vic. The Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series has made two prior visits to the Seymour, Tennessee bullring and Jimmy Owens took home the victory on each occasion back in 2019 and 2021. | full story

Wil Herrington Outlasts Spring Nationals Foes at Senoia Raceway for $10,053 Victory!

(March 4, 2023) On an uncharacteristically rough racing surface at Senoia Raceway on Saturday night, Wil Herrington outlasted the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series presented by Coltman Farms Racing field to reach victory lane on the tour for the first time in his young career! After timing in third quickest in Group A during the qualifying session, Wil recorded a heat race triumph to earn the rights to the pole position for the feature event. During the headliner, which was cut to 35 laps due to the rugged track conditions, Wil led the first eight circuits before giving way to fellow Georgian Ashton Winger.

After Winger suffered mechanical woes while leading the field on lap 15, Wil grabbed the point for good on the restart and led the remaining circuits of the contest to collect the $10,053 winner’s check. The Hawkinsville, Georgia ace beat new Spring Nationals point leader Ross Bailes and tenth-starting Parker Martin, Jr. to the checkered flag. Haiden Cowan finished one lap down in fourth, while Payton Freeman, who ran as high as second before drawing a late caution flag in the attrition-filled race, was credited with a fifth place performance. | full story

Brandon, who earlier in the night posted the fastest lap in Group B during the qualifying session before winning his heat race, started the 53-lap headliner from the outside of the front row. The Evans, Georgia superstar then swept by early race leader Sam Seawright with an outside move on the tenth circuit and never looked back en route to picking up the $10,053 first place prize money.

Finishing behind Overton’s #76 machine at the unfurling of the checkered flag was Seawright, who had earned Fast Time honors overall during qualifying prior to securing a win in the first heat race of the evening. After starting from the pole position and leading the first nine laps, the Rainsville, Alabama ace finished 0.756 seconds behind Overton and settled for a runner-up effort with a $5,000 payday.

Click to Enlarge!(December 9, 2022) As day two of the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show gets underway today, promoter Ray Cook is proud to release the 2023 version of both the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series and Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals Series schedules. Featuring 26 dates in all, both tours combine to offer drivers more than $825,000 in purse and point money - making this upcoming year the most lucrative in the history of both miniseries. Ray has beefed up the purse structure in certain areas and none of the 26 scheduled events will shell out less than $7,553 to the winner.

“I feel like for a regional tour, we’ve been able to put together a pretty nice package for both our family of tracks and the drivers that race with us,” quoted Cook while attending the PRI trade show in Indianapolis, Indiana. “With the help of our partners and the support from our great track promoters, we’ve been able to add a little to the purses in certain areas and pay no less than $7,553 to win and $500 to start. When we started this thing years ago, a lot of our races were $3,500 to win, but we’ve steadily been trying to raise the bar as much as we can and I’m really excited about both of our series schedules heading into the 2023 season!” | full story
