Delmas Conley Back in PRP Victory Lane; Conley's Gear Up for Huge Holiday Weekend!

(July 1, 2015 - WHEELERSBURG, OH) Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Delmas Conley stood tall in victory lane for the sixth time in 2015 on Saturday evening, June 27 at the nearby Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio! Delmas timed in fifth fastest during the qualifying session prior to picking up the win in the fast dash. After starting the weekly main event from the pole position, Delmas led from flag-to-flag in the headliner to pocket the $2,000 payday over Chris Garnes, Rod Conley, Brandon Fouts, and Jake Keaton!

Rod Conley ran second in his heat race and later started the feature from the fifth row. "Hot Rod" then stormed to the front at PRP to claim the podium finish. His brother R.J. Conley was also in action on Saturday, but his evening was spoiled by mechanical troubles. R.J. set Fast Time in qualifying and finished sixth in the dash, but unfortunately broke the yoke on the transmission while running second in the A-Main, which dropped the Wheelersburg, Ohio native to a disappointing twenty-second place performance.

Richards Highlights Northern Tour with Victory at Brighton Speedway

 (SHINNSTON, WV - June 25, 2015) - Josh Richards scored his 53rd-career World of Outlaws Late Model Series win Saturday night at Brighton Speedway, highlighting the Series three-race Great Northern Tour through New York and Canada.

Starting the Northern Tour Thursday evening at Fonda (N.Y.) Speedway, Richards began his night on a promising note posting the fastest circuit in hot laps. He then qualified second, which lined him up in the pole position for his heat race. Richards quickly drove away from the field on the first lap and looked to be well on his way to a heat race win, when his engine failed coming out of Turn 2 on the last lap. Though he had a blown motor, the Rocket driver had such a commanding lead he was able to limp his No. 1 machine home to a second place finish. Unfortunately, the team was forced to unload the backup car and was put to the rear of the field for the start of the 40-lap feature event. Starting 24th in a brand new backup car with no laps on it, Richards was on a mission to find his way back toward the front of the field. It didn't take him long, as the 27-year-old was scored in 17th in just three laps. He continued to methodically make his way through the field and was running in 10th at the halfway mark. With a never give up attitude, Richards was able to drive his way to a seventh-place finish in the remaining 20 laps to turn what could have been a disastrous evening in to a solid top-10 finish.
