Conley Cashes In at Portsmouth Raceway Park for Second Win of
(July 18, 2019)
R.J. Conley, of Wheelersburg, Ohio, claimed his
second feature win of 2019 on Saturday evening, July 13 in a "Christmas
in July" show at the nearby Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth,
Ohio! R.J. swept the night, as he earned Fast Time honors in qualifying,
won his heat race, and later led flag-to-flag in the main event.
He beat Brandon Fouts, Shannon Thornsberry, Audie Swartz, and
Ron Hinds II to the checkered flag to bag the $2,000 top prize.
His son J.T. Conley was also in action at PRP and ran fourth in
his heat race prior to vaulting up inside of the top five in the
feature before settling for a solid sixth place showing.
Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Delmas Conley wound up at Atomic
Speedway in Alma, Ohio on Saturday night, July 13 for a similar
weekly show, which also boasted a $2,000 winner's check. Delmas
laid down the quickest lap overall during qualifying and ran
second in his heat race. Unfortunately, the patriarch of the
racing Conley family was ran off the track during the feature
and was an early retiree, as Delmas was paid for an eighteenth
place performance. Full results from both southern Ohio facilities
can be viewed online at www.atomicspeedway.net
With R.J. and J.T. Conley sitting idle for a family wedding
this weekend, only Delmas and Rod Conley are slated to be in
Super Late Model competition on July 19-20. Delmas will make
the short trek to Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio
on Saturday for a $2,000 to win weekly show. "Hot Rod"
- on the other hand - is scheduled to venture south to Richmond
Raceway in Richmond, Kentucky for the annual running of the
'Butch Shay Memorial.' The Mid-Ohio Valley Ultimate Super Late
Model Series will preside over the doubleheader in the Commonwealth
of Kentucky, which will pay $3,000 to the winner on Friday and
will feature a $5,000 paycheck on Saturday. More information
