Scoots to Mini Stock Battle on the Coast Crown!
(October 3, 2015) - It was no surprise to see
the No. 9 in the Golden Isles Speedway pit area Saturday evening.
When the big money is on the line Mini Stock competitors usually
can bet Joey Schoen and his Webb Services Professional Carpet
& Air Duct Cleaning special is in the house. The multi-time
Swainsboro Raceway track champion made the trek to GIS pay off
in a big way, taking the inaugural Battle on the Coast and the
$1,000 top prize. Payton Johnson, who chased Schoen in the SR
track points in 2015, tried to chase him down, but settled for
second. Oglethorpe Speedway regulars Emory Cox, Alan Carter and
J. Jay Reich came next.
Cecil Eunice topped Jeff Henry to take the 20-lap
GIS Late Model season finale. Pearson Williams, Chad Tuten and
Mallory Harvey rounded out the top five. Tuten jumped behind the
wheel after a full season in EMods. Track point leader Russell
Brown, Jr. was disqualified from the feature. | more
Speedway Race Report - September 19, 2015
(September 19, 2015) - Double points. Coveted
track championships on the line. A beautiful September evening.
Nothing more is needed to bring out the best racing at Golden
Isles Speedway. Seven champions were crowned, but only one of
those ended up in the XL Carts Victory Lane.
Michael Lloyd's EMod was fast off the trailer and
swept the show, including the $800 first prize in the 20-lap feature.
Lloyd also wheeled his machine to fast qualifying time to top
the 21-car field. A myriad of cautions flew during the first half
of the race plus a red flag on Lap 1 right after a restart. Kyle
Arvin and Brandon Wells made contact in Turn 1 tipping Arvin's
mount on its side. Wells was also done for the night. Chase Collins
gave chase, but was no match for Lloyd, whose teammate, Hunter
Peacock, took third. Allen Tatum and Donnie Hall came next. Those
two were deciding the track championship with Hall leading into
this final night. | more
