UARA-STARS to Return to Tri- County Motor Speedway

 

Hendersonville, North Carolina (May 18, 2009) - Friday April 10th the UARA STARS and Pro Challenge Series cars rolled into Tri County Speedway planning to have a great day and evening of racing.  The cars rolled through tech and prepared to hit the track when the rains began.  After a period of waiting, the officials and Tri County track crew got the track dry and practice began.  Twenty nine UARA drivers hit the grid and it was young Coleman Pressley setting the pace with a quick time of 16.487.   Pressley was followed by Paddy Rodenbeck, Richard Boswell, Matt McCall and Andy Loden being the top five quickest.

 

The Pro Challenge drivers hit the track for their practice session and all goes well.  Kyle Benjamin set the fast time for these young men at 17.502.  Benjamin was followed by Steve Berg Jr., Kyle Wilson, Trevor Edwards, Ryan Heavner, Megan Dillner and Chris Brown.  These young men and ladies run an exciting race and at our last event it was Heavner who brought home the trophy.

 

Before the grandstand gates were scheduled to open April 10th the rains began again and eventually as weather goes the bottom falls out of the clouds and the show would be cancelled and rescheduled for this Friday May 22, 2009.

 

Due to the weather the street stock cars had not even made it to sign in before the rains hit.  They should be there in force come Friday.

 

Rodenbeck will head to Tri County with his first win under his belt after Concord on 4-25-09.  Rodenbeck has been showing quite a bit of muscle so far in 2009 and will be a force to reckon with.  Another driver that has been lurking at the front on the pack itching for his first win is Rookie contender Matthew Godley.

 

Godley’s fellow rookie contender Dylan Presnell, the youngest UARA rookie challenger ever had an impressive 12th place finish in his first UARA event and eyes will be on him to see how he fairs in the weeks to come.  Flashbacks go to the likes of Matt DiBenedetto, Darrell Wallace Jr., Steven Wallace and  Kyle Grissom to name a few.  And who can forget our first UARA Champion, one young 17 year old gentle giant named Danny O’Quinn, Jr.  The UARA is definitely a showplace for the young guns and seasoned veterans alike.

 

Richard Boswell II should be making the show with a new car after his mishap at Rockingham.  Boswell never fails to be up near the front along with his team mate Owen Kelly.  Kelly has put the UARA on the international set.  His UARA showings are being followed by Australian magazines etc.

 

Several of the usual front runners have fallen victim to enigne problems time and again so far this season and are all hoping to have lady luck smile on them.

 

Past champions and future champs alike will be giving the fans just what they want : serious door to door, nose to tail, paint swapping excitement.
