Matt Bowling Heads to East Carolina Motor Speedway as National Points Battle Heats Up

By: Justin Kern

Robersonville, NC – NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National points leader Matt Bowling pulled into East Carolina Motor Speedway this weekend as the National point’s battle heats up. With just a one-point lead going into this weekend, Bowling is looking to capitalize on the increased car counts and twin features in the Late Model division that East Carolina Motor Speedway has been boasting this year.

With twelve starts over four different tracks; Bowling enters the weekend with 358 points, just one point over Chase Purdy who is actually scheduled to run the CARS Tour event at Tri-County Motor Speedway and Greenville Pickens Speedway point’s leader. Purdy and Keith Rocco, who finished 12th in Stafford Motor Speedway’s 45- lap SK Modified feature Friday night, enter the weekend tied for second in the national standings.

Thomas Burbage Declared Winner in Caution Shortened Feature

By: Justin Kern

Robersonville, NC – Thomas Burbage left East Carolina Motor Speedway with a first place trophy in one hand, and some car parts in the other, as did quite a few others after a massive eight car pile up at the flag stand, coming to the white flag, forced race control to end the race early. With just 35-laps in a feature race with maximum points on the line in a full field of Late Models, things are going to get interesting.

The field was bunched up after a late race caution with fewer than five laps to go after Louis White went for a spin going through turns one and two. Not able to confirm if there was any contact with any other car that made, but after looking at the video, appears that Louis might have been up in the marbles and the go just went around on him.

Tyler Matthews Sets Fast Time for 75-Lap Feature at East Carolina

By: Justin Kern

Robersonville, NC – Tyler Matthews set the fastest lap in qualifying with a 15.440 second lap at the 3/8th mile high banked East Carolina Motor Speedway. “I under drover the car that first lap. I knew there was a lot left in the car so I just went with it. Either first or last.” Matthews commented after qualifying was over. Tyler’s team won a pole in a similar way last season with a rain shower between practice and qualifying so they knew not to make any changes between sessions.

He also led green to checkered in that race. “We sat on the pole a couple times here last year and won a couple of them,” Matthews said. “I usually like to go out first and set the pace. The other drivers see the fast lap and it kind of messes with their head.” Matthews crew did not change much on the car between practice and qualifying after the rain washed away most of the rubber. Thomas Burbage was .023 off the pole sitter’s pace and last week’s winner Brenden “Butterbean” Queen will start in third with a 15.501 second lap.
