R.J. Conley Transfers into Season-Ending DTWC at Portsmouth
(October 22, 2018) Next up on the racing calendar for Conley Motorsports, Inc. (CMI) was a visit to the nearby Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio from October 19-21 for the 38th edition of the 'Dirt Track World Championship.' The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series season finale took place at the facility on the banks of the Ohio River and a gargantuan $100,000 paycheck was on the line. R.J. Conley returned to racing action after a long layoff and finished fifth in his first heat race on Friday night and ninth in his final prelim. After placing fifth in his B-Main on Saturday evening, R.J. received a track provisional to gain access into the 100-lap DTWC. During the crown jewel spectacular, which was run on Sunday afternoon due to inclement weather, R.J. started twenty-seventh on the grid, was caught up in a lap 44 pileup, and was eventually placed seventeenth in the final finishing order after retiring late in the distance.

Rod Conley, of nearby Wheelersburg, Ohio, ran sixth in his first heat race on Friday and fifth in his final heat race prior to running sixth in Saturday's B-Main. "Hot Rod" then drove up to second in the $3,000 to win 'Jim Dunn Memorial' for non-qualifiers, but was unfortunately not able to transfer into the 'Dirt Track World Championship.' Delmas Conley, the patriarch of the racing Conley family, unfortunately had a short weekend, as front end damage in his first heat race on Friday night caused him to scratch for the remainder of the program.
