Loudon, Tennessee (02/04/19) – Cory Hedgecock bagged his first win of 2019 on Saturday with a $1,500 Crate Late Model triumph at Boyds Speedway in his brand-new Cushman #23 K&P Used Cars/ Five Star Hyundai/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Eagle Racing Engine entry.


“I didn’t necessarily end the 2018 season the way that I would’ve liked. It feels like it’s been a while since I won a race, so it feels good to get another one,” Hedgecock commented. “This new XR1 Rocket Chassis felt really good. It was my first time on Integra Shocks and they really helped me have a great handling car. This new Eagle Racing Engine purred all night. We set fast time, started outside pole in the feature, and never looked back. Couldn’t have asked for anymore.


“We’ll get ready for the Sweetheart Race at 411 Motor Speedway in a few weeks, and then really get ramped up for Durrence Layne Series races at Bubba Raceway Park the end of the month.”


On Saturday night Cory Hedgecock hopped behind the wheel of his Valley Transport #23 Crate Late Model for the annual Cabin Fever at Boyd’s Speedway (Ringgold, Georgia). Laying down the fastest time in qualifying, Hedgecock started in the outside-front-row position for the finale.


Rocketing into the lead at the drop of the green flag, Cory led wire-to-wire to pick up his first win of the season over Jimmy Elliott, Cruz Skinner, Chip Brindle, and David Kay.
