Conley Cashes $3,023 Win in Bob Crace Memorial; Readies for Brownstown!
(September 20, 2017)
R.J. Conley, of Wheelersburg, Ohio, racked up
his fifth feature win of the 2017 racing season on Saturday evening,
September 16 in the annual 'Bob Crace Memorial' at Atomic Speedway
in Alma, Ohio! R.J. posted the third fastest lap during the qualifying
session prior to winning his heat race in preliminary action.
R.J. then grabbed the point from his brother Rod Conley on the
sixth circuit and drove to victory in the 25-lapper to score the
$3,023 payday ahead of Tyler Carpenter, Rod Conley, Jackie Boggs,
and Jason Montgomery. "Hot Rod" also won his heat race
at the southern Ohio venue prior to leading early in the feature
and leaving Atomic with a strong podium effort.
Delmas Conley - the patriarch of the racing Conley family -
took his #71 operation to the nearby Portsmouth Raceway Park
in Portsmouth, Ohio on Saturday night for a $2,000 to win weekly
Super Late Model program. After struggling early in the evening,
Delmas unloaded a back-up car before the start of the A-Main.
The Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer then stormed all the way up
to the second spot during the headliner before a fuel line came
off, which caught his XR1 Rocket Chassis on fire. Delmas escaped
injury, but was done for the night and was forced to settle
for a twelfth place performance at PRP. Full results from both
racetracks can be accessed online at www.atomicspeedway.net
The three Conley Motorsports, Inc. (CMI) pilots will head to
a trio of different venues in the states of Indiana, West Virginia,
and Ohio over the September 22-23 weekend. R.J. will invade
the legendary Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Indiana, as
the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will preside over the 38th
Annual 'Jackson 100.' A $7,000 top prize will be on the line
on Friday at the 1/4-mile fairgrounds facility, while a $15,000
winner's check will be up for grabs in Saturday's 100-lap finale.
Rod will travel to Ohio Valley Speedway in Lubeck, West Virginia
on Saturday for a $5,000 to win shootout, while Delmas is slated
to sling dirt at Atomic Speedway in Alma, Ohio in a weekly Super
Late Model show that boasts a $2,000 paycheck. Additional information
