(Elite Series) Race 2 - LoanPros 200 (Writeup)

Post by Ceej on Thu Mar 26, 2015 7:18 pm

I can't dig up the motivation to do a video for this race, so starting here, select races will be covered with press releases instead of videos.

Press Releases:
Matthews Wins from Pole



One year ago, Ryan Matthews came up short on fuel at Columbia Speedway and had to settle for second.

Today, the defending FARC Elite Series Fueled by Smash Beer champion conquered the half-mile, dominating the LoanPros 200 from the Karl's Superstores Pole and walking away with a perfect 130 points. The victory, which comes after his early exit from the Smash Beer 200 last week, was his first of 2015, and the third in his FARC career.

Matthews led 148 of the 200 laps in a race that was plagued by 17 Vicker Collision & Glass Cautions, including one that Matthews himself was caught up in; contact between Tom Delgado and Greg Gray on lap 124 sent Taylor Brillon spinning into Matthews' path as he was leading, causing some damage to the left front of the #61 Pisswasser Saar. However, Matthews did not pit for the damage, and he never fell out of the top 5 once for the entire race.

With his victory, Matthews finds himself 13th in the championship.

Foote Second After Rough Day for SPI



Bigsby Foote's runner-up finish in the LoanPros 200 was the only high note on a day that Sergio Power would surely like to forget otherwise.

Sergio Power, Inc.'s three cars - the #14 SasqWATCH Lycoia driven by Foote, the #16 Leapin' Lizard Lycoia driven by Rip Tyler, and the #24 Libertea Lycoia driven by Libby Bell- were involved in multiple accidents during the race. Tyler ended up dropping out on lap 45 with a clutch failure, while Bell held out for much longer; she led a few laps with a strategy call before dropping back on a restart, but had to make an unscheduled stop that put her multiple laps down, and she eventually dropped out with 30 laps remaining with an engine failure.

The SPI drivers did not make many friends along the way, starting with Rip Tyler turning Cyrus LaTerza into the inside wall coming to the end of the first lap, and followed by Bigsby Foote turning Aaron Singer around on a restart soon afterwards. Foote called attention to himself again on lap 70, turning Greg Gray into the side of LaTerza and sending him for another spin. Despite the ruffled feathers and bodywork, Foote persevered and passed Packer Carroll in the final sprint to the finish after a restart with 20 laps remaining.

Rip Tyler continues to lead the championship by 11 points over Lucas Sweeney.

Top-15 Finishes for all 4 Delgado Cars, But Could Have Been Better



Tom Delgado Racing's 4 entries endured  the grueling LoanPros 200 and all finished in the top 15, but one wonders what could have been if there hadn't been a few hitches along the way.

Tammy Barnton, making her first start of 2015 in the #87 Gibson's Speedy Lube Lenard, started 13th and clawed her way to the front, eventually battling Ryan Matthews for the lead with some help from lapped cars. However, Barnton cut a tire and had to pit from the lead right after lap 100, putting her two laps down and relegating her to thirteenth, where she had started the race.

TDR owner Tom Delgado, driving the #37 Defender Mufflers Lenard, ran in the top 10 until having to make and unscheduled green-flag stop, but he fought his way back to finish eleventh.

Harry S. Enola's discipline paid off for him today, despite what seemed to be an ill-handling car; the #45 Freedumb Missiles Lenard led 8 laps after staying out during a caution, and the former Marine drill sergeant eventually faded to ninth at the finish, but otherwise stayed out of trouble.

Cyrus LaTerza and his #17 Allison Becker Lenard had the most eventful day of the TDR entries. He was involved in a staggering 10 incidents throughout the race, including two with Bigsby Foote alone and another two that he triggered himself. Ironically, LaTerza finished seventh, the best result of all of the TDR cars.

Mixed Results for Columbia Regulars



Of the 36 cars to take the start of the LoanPros 200, two of them were helmed by drivers whom Columbia locals would definitely recognize; multi-time Columbia Speedway track champion "Mayor" Alex Whitt in the Kathryn Azure-owned #46, and Mini Stock competitor Brittany Filyaw in the #18 for Coleman's Crew.

However, it could have been a better day for Whitt and Filyaw on their home turf. Whitt battled incidents and an ill-handling car to finish 15th, 4 laps off of race winner Ryan Matthews, while Filyaw was well off the pace and got involved in several accidents, eventually dropping out and finishing 27th.

Alex Whitt has a few more starts in the KAT Motorsports #46 and his title fight in the FARC Duckroll Super Series to look forward to, while it is uncertain if Filyaw has further FARC plans.

Carroll Third After Clash with Teammate Lightener



The LoanPros 200 saw a third-place finish for Gravity Racing owner Packer Carroll in his return to FARC racing, but it didn't come without a few bumps along the way; in particular, a Vicker Collision & Glass Caution on lap 34 in which Carroll spun his teammate Isaac Lightener as Lightener was running a lap down.

Neither Carroll nor Lightener have offered comment at this time.

Carroll remained in the top 10 for most of the day, driving the #71 Buckeye Latinum Foundries Isanni into second place before being passed by Bigsby Foote in the closing laps. Lightener's #94 ZombieBusters.com Isanni continued to take a beating, and he eventually settled for 20th, seven laps down.

Griffin Claims Hard Charger Bonus



Ryan Griffin's start to the 2015 FARC Elite Series Fueled by Smash Beer season continued to gain momentum at the LoanPros 200.

The driver of the #86 HP Engine Parts Lycoia for Ike Durbin, Inc., started 23rd and clawed his way to eighth, gaining the most positions of anyone else from the start and collecting the ten bonus points from the Hard Charger award.

Griffin now sits sixth in the championship standings.

Walls OK After Crash



Rookie Jacob Walls exited his first FARC Elite Series Fueled by Smash Beer points race in spectacular fashion, as the #44 First Sixteenth Bank Lenard went for a roll on lap 21 of the LoanPros 200.

Taylor Brillon made contact with Walls coming through turn 4 on a restart, sending Walls sliding into the path of Isaac Lightener. Walls then swerved to the inside trying to correct the car and collided with Lawrence Burr, sending the #44 onto its roof. Walls was left hanging upside-down, but the safety crew turned the car back over and allowed Walls to climb out unscathed.

It has been a rough start to 2015 for MT Motorsports and the #44, which is being split by rookies Walls and Shane Williams. Williams failed to qualify for last week's Smash Beer 200 after a hard crash.
