on lap two and led most of the remainder of the feature distance
to pocket the $2,000 winner's check ahead of Duane Chamberlain,
Rod Conley, Robby Hensley, and John Whitney, Jr. In the 65th
Anniversary Night at Atomic on Saturday evening, R.J. won his
heat race and later led from flag-to-flag in the headliner to

a pair of top five feature finishes. "Hot Rod" ran
second in his heat race prior to finishing third and on the
podium at Moler Raceway Park. He then won his heat race and
ran second early in the main event at Atomic Speedway before

Rod and R.J. Conley Finally Kick
Off 2018 Season in Buckeye Spring 50
14, 2018) Conley Motorsports, Inc. (CMI) finally
unloaded for the first time in 2018 on Friday evening, April
13 in the 'Buckeye Spring 50' at Atomic Speedway in Alma, Ohio!
The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series once again presided over
the single-day shootout, which drew 30 competitors to vie for
the $12,000 top prize. Rod Conley qualified twelfth quickest
in Group B during the time trial session before finishing eighth
in his loaded heat race. He then advanced past several cars
during the B-Main to grab the fifth transfer spot into the 50-lap
main event. "Hot Rod" then steered his XR1 Rocket
Chassis by eight competitors in the 'Buckeye Spring 50' to nab
a respectable thirteenth place effort against national competition
in his season lid lifter.
R.J. Conley also unloaded his #71c machine at Atomic on Friday
night and promptly laid down the eighth fastest lap in Group
A during qualifying. He was then running in a coveted transfer
position in his heat race before unfortunately going for a spin
in turn four. R.J.'s mount suffered damage in the incident and
he was not able to make the call for the B-Main, which kept
him out of the 50-lapper that was eventually won by Scott Bloomquist.
