Laurens County Speedway Notes… Let’s take a quick result back at the winners from the LCS main events last Saturday night:
- Crates… It is customary that when a driver wins his first ever race at the LCS that he take a celebratory drag through the mud but with the lack of rain about all they could do last Saturday night is playfully drag Chastin Blackwell through the dust as he won his first ever race at the LCS by winning the Crates main event… Nick Dietz finished 2nd and Deano Long 3rd.
- Limited… Frankie Coates took the lead very early in the Limited main event race and then hold on to take the win with the next two drivers across the finish line being Jimmy Taylor and Mike Kernels in that order.
- SS4… Jasper Brown won his first race of the season as he took the win in the SS4 main event… The next two drivers to get the checkered flag were Dallas Miller and “Bam Bam” Meadows.
- Stock Thunder… Darren Fowler took the checkered flag in the Stock Thunder Division but did not take the win… As soon as the race was over Dan Lawson made an official protest and when Fowler refused to teardown his car and was disqualified, Lawson was declared the winner… Dean Barnett was second and Bruce Barnett third.
- FWD… Travis Jamieson picked up his 7th win of the season by taking the win in the front-wheel drive… The real battle was for second where Andrew Patterson finished second just ahead of Spud Ammons who took third.
- Hobby… The Hobby main event saw Chris Lyons continue his dominance in the division by taking his 10th win of the season… He started on the pole and was never really challenged… Clark Smith and Lucas Motte finished second and third respectively.
- Schedule Note… Due to the July 4th weekend, Laurens County Speedway will be holding its weekly races tonight and not tomorrow night.
- Coastal Carolina 4 – Arizona 3… well the clock never struck midnight for the Cinderella Coastal Carolina Chanticleers as they defeated Arizona 4-3 yesterday afternoon to win the CWS Division I Baseball Championship out in Omaha… The game was scoreless until the 6th inning when Coastal but 4 runs on the board thanks to a couple of Wildcat errors and a 2-run homer by G.K. Young… Arizona responded scoring 2 runs in the bottom of the 6th and Arizona got one more in the bottom of the 9th and had a runner at third with two outs when a strikeout ended the game and the dog pile began… Coastal ended its season 55-18 and became the first team since Minnesota in 1956 to win the title in its first appearance in the CWS finals… This is Coastal’s first nation championship in any sport and it came on their last day as a member of the Big South Conference as the move to the Sun Belt Conference starting today…For all sorts of information on this game, click here… Congratulations to the Chanticleers!
