Motorsports, Inc. Finally Beats Mother Nature to Compete in Buckeye
(April 18, 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.

This coming weekend, Rod Conley will be the lone CMI driver
in dirt-slinging action, as he will take his #71r mount to Midway
Speedway in Crooksville, Ohio on Saturday night, April 21. The
annual 'King of Hillbilly Hill' will take place at Midway and
the unsanctioned Super Late Model special will boast a $5,000
winner's check. More information can be obtained by clicking
