Conley on Podium in Fall 50; Conley's Look to Defend Home Turf
(October 16, 2019)
R.J. Conley, of Wheelersburg, Ohio, started his
October 11-12 weekend on Friday night at Moler Raceway Park in
Williamsburg, Ohio. The 'Championship Bash' was held at MRP and
a $5,000 paycheck was on the line for the Super Late Models. R.J.
ran second in his heat race and was scheduled to roll off from
the inside of the third row in the 32-lap main event. Unfortunately,
Mother Nature swooped in prior to the start of the race and rain
showers wiped out the remainder of the unsanctioned contest.
On Saturday evening, R.J. was joined by his father Delmas Conley
and his brother Rod Conley at Atomic Speedway in Alma, Ohio,
as the track played host to their annual 'Fall 50,' which also
boasted a $5,000 payday. R.J. earned Fast Time honors during
the qualifying session and ran second in his heat race, but
later suffered mechanical trouble running third in the 50-lapper
and was forced to retire his smoking car in the fifteenth position.
Delmas qualified well, won his heat race, and later steered
his familiar #71 machine to a stellar third place performance
in the 'Fall 50' behind only victor Freddie Carpenter and runner-up
Tyler Carpenter. "Hot Rod" was not far behind his
Hall of Fame father, as he placed second in his heat race and
fifth in the headliner at the former K-C Raceway. Complete results
from both southern Ohio facilities can be accessed online at
Conley Motorsports, Inc. (CMI) will be out in full force on
October 18-19, as Delmas, Rod, R.J., and J.T. Conley will all
vie for the whopping $100,000 winner's check in the 39th Annual
'Dirt Track World Championship.' The crown jewel spectacular
will once again be held on the banks of the Ohio River at the
nearby Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio. Lucas Oil
Late Model Dirt Series qualifying and traditional heat races
will be held at PRP on Friday night, while the consolation events
and the 100-lap DTWC are scheduled for Saturday evening.
Also on tap for Saturday during the lucrative weekend is a
$3,000 to win feature for non-qualifiers. R.J. was the lone
CMI driver to advance into last year's DTWC headliner, as he
brought home a seventeenth place showing in one of the sport's
biggest events. More information can be obtained by pointing
