Doug not only shut the door he slamed the door on any pursuer in his championship hunt. Dennis Wright took the pole but soon relinquished the lead to Kent Connolly who was on a mission to lead the most laps and lead the last lap but he only attained one of his goals. On the last restart of the evening Doug started off with the lead and thats exactly where he ended the race with the lead,championship hopeful Kent Connolly coming in second and Jeffrey Kochis bringing home third exactly how they finished in the championship. A big congrats to Doug Sigmon on a well deserved win and championship.
Doug Sigmon battled hard all race and a late race caution set him up to win at Concord. Austin Craig looked poised to win until the final caution put him to second and he could not pull off the pass for the win. Craig would fall to third with Austin Carver picking up second. Jacob Pendley would finish a strong fourth after many adjustments during the running. With another strong run to close the season, Jeffrey Kochis finished fifth. The championship was also decided Thursday night. Congrats to our champion... We know him as The Legend, but friends and family simply call him Austin. Yes that is right Austin Carver is the newest Hooters Late Model Series champion! Doug Sigmon battled Carver hard until the final race and finished just seven points behind. Jacob Pendley would finish third and Jeffrey Kochis would finish fourth. After many visit with the wall throughout the season, Kent *Tough Luck* Connolly would warp across the line and finish fifth in the championship! Congrats to all drivers who were able to run for the points title!
No Name teammates Brandon Chubirko and Joshua Hanner were locked in a duel all the way past the line. Chubirko would barely edge Hanner in one of the closes finishes ever at Revved Up. The free agent driver Ray Schmidt would fight hard against the No Name drivers, but came up short of the win in third. Rowdy Boys Racing star Austin Carver would look slow early, but made major adjustments and came home fourth. Chuck Runyan would stay out under the last caution, but his truck was fast enough to hold on to a top five and prove his decision was a good one. With just two races left in the season, there is only a seven point difference between Frank Buccialia III and Austin Carver, but don't count out Joshua Hanner either to make a surprise move to defend his two championship reign!
Fergerson denies the lady a stripe
Darlington, SC- Daniel Fergerson get his first win of the Revved Up cup series at Darlington Speedway. Not only did Daniel win the race he led the most laps and raced incident free. He started the night out in 7th place but slowly let attrition take to the field and then pounced. James Hudson2 started on the pole and led 35 laps but was caught back in traffic after a late race yellow. Rodney Lease ran his own race and raced the track and also brought his car home without a scratch. Things could be anymore different with the fourth place finisher on the night. Dennis W Wright hit everything but the pace car but was able to salvage a decent finish. We caught up to Dennis after the race and he had this to say, " I'm glad we are done with this bleeping track." Yves Gallagher tried his hardest to get around Dennis but had to settle for 5th place. Daniel Fergerson was able to take over the points lead as Kent Connolly struggled on the night. Our reporters caught up with Kent and he had this to say, " I was looking for my mentor Austin Carver but couldn't find him tonight so I was off my game." The race was slowed by only 2 cautions and saw 3 lead changes amongst 2 drivers. The drivers have next week off to spend Easter weekend with their families before heading to Richmond International Raceway.
Well when Kyle Sterk shows up he wins and tonight proved just that. Kyle grabbed the pole and was in domination mode when a yellow came out and tightened up the field but that didn't last long. Kyle restarted where he left off before the yellow and went on to cruise to victory with Joe Marks getting second and Kent Connolly taking third. Next week don't forget to check in to see if Doug Sigmon can hold on to his six point lead in the championship points at season finale at Irwindale Outer.
With Austin "The So Called Legend" a no show tonights race was wide open. Newcomer Austin Craig grabbed the pole but would lose the lead to Doug Sigmon who needed to get as many bonus points for the race with just one race left in the season. Jacob Pendley would take over the lead late in the race in a battle of gas strategy and track position when Kent Connolly saw an opening late in the race he jumped on it like a rabid dog ravages red meat. Connolly and Pendley touched in what some say rough driving by Connolly but later Kent would say it was a go time so I went end of discussion. Jacob Pendley took home second and Doug Sigmon grabbed third. Next week Concord show up and see if Carver can close the championship.
Darlington, SC—The Lady in Black chose her dance partner and that driver was none other than Ray Schmidt. Schmidt led every lap except for two where Matt Laventure and Jimmy Todd each led for one lap each. Schmidt took home the win followed by Daniel Fergerson in second. Kent Connolly brought his machine home in third with Rodney Lease securing a nice fourth place finish. Todd rounded out the Top 5 after an engine failure derailed a strong run.
No Name star Joshua Hanner rode behind G's Up driver Frank Buccialia III for most of the race, but when it was go time, Hanner found another gear. Joshua flew past Buccialia after the final restart and drove away to victory. Buccialia would have a solid points day and gain ground over second place Austin Carver. No Name undervalued driver Shane Mceachin would have another solid night and finish third. G's Up would again be represented inside the top five with Gregory Thompson finishing fourth. JPR's Johnny Penland would pick up his best career finish in fifth! The race only saw two cautions flags with an impressive show of respect by the drivers in the field!

Daniel Fergerson had a solid run coming in fourth and Jimmy Todd knocked the wall down trying a "Connolly adjustment" but managed to come home in fifth place. Kent Connolly takes over as the points leader with the absence of Austin Carver. Connolly leads by 1 point over Fergerson and 2 points over Carver heading into Darlington.
Darryl Tiezzi grabed the pole but would soon relinquish the lead to Joe Marks who stretched out his lead only to have the field come back with a couple of early cautions. Joe used some strategy by staying out on the last caution only to have Doug Sigmon hot on his trail but fell just short to grab second to Joe with Darryl bringing home third. Doug stretched out his championship lead to 6 points to Kent Connolly with just 2 races to go and Jeffrey Kochis just 8 points back.
William Burton with help from championship contender Austin Carver looked to be distant third and fourth finishers up until the last lap. Dennis Wright and Wesley Donaldson were hooked up with a sizable gap between them and the duo of Carver and Burton. With just one lap to go though, the duo switched and Carver latched on to Burton for one final push. The two ran down the lead duo of Wright and Donaldson and overtook them as Wright and Donaldson spun in turn four. Burton would hold Carver off and pick up his first career victory. Carver would come up short for the win, but managed to win the championship. Wesley Donaldson would finish third and Dennis Wright would survive the wreck to cross the line fourth. Kent Connolly looked strong, but a late race caution shuffled him to the back. Connolly would fight hard though and rounded out the top five. Carver would win the championship over David Baker by just ten points. Baker would hold Rod Lease off from stealing second by just two points! Kent Connolly would finish the season in fourth spot with William Burton finishing in the fifth spot! By far the closes points battle of all time here at Revved Up and a huge congratulations to the points contenders!
Doug Sigmon looked to make up ground on point leader Austin Carver, Thursday night. Sigmon would start off doing just that by picking up the pole and the bonus points that come with it. Carver would start in the back of the pack, but quickly made his way through the field and into the lead. Pit Strategy was in play during the entire race that featured no cautions and many different pit laps made it an interesting ending. In the closing laps Kent *Rudy* Connolly finally got to lead, but it simply was more of a fan touted event rather than a race changing lead change. Connolly soon relinquished the lead to the true leader of Carver and he would lead from there to win at Richmond. Jeffrey Kochis would finish second and prove he is a strong contender yet again. Kent Connolly would fall to third after his pit stop and Doug Sigmon would come home a disappointing fourth. William Roberts would make an appearance and round out the top five.
Fort Worth, Texas—James Hudson made his return to the Freedom Cup series and it didn’t take long for him to make his presence felt. Hudson took the pole, led 108 of the 112 laps, and brought home the checkered flag. The only other drivers to lead laps besides Hudson were Matt Laventure for 2 laps, Ray Schmidt and Jimmy Todd who both led 1 apiece. Schmidt finished second followed by Kent Connolly in third. Laventure’s persistence following a pit road run in with Schmidt nabbed him a fourth place finish and Rodney Lease rounded out the Top 5. The night did not go as planned for Todd, Dave Nestor or Jacob Pendley as each of them suffered accidents that resulted in major damage to their machines and made for a long night of repairs in the garage. Next week the Freedom Cup series rolls into the famed Darlington Raceway for race #8 of the season!

The short flat track of Martinsville always provides excitement for the drivers and Monday night was no exception. Matthew Laventure started on the pole and looked to be a real threat for the win until pit strategy put him in harms way. Laventure would end up with a disappointing finish in twenty-first place. Rowdy Boys Racing heart throb Austin Carver might have been the dark horse middle ways into the race, but by the end he was showing muscle. Carver capitalized on the last pit stop to gain track position and held off the hungry No Name drivers of Joshua Hanner and Brandon Chubirko. G's Up driver and points leader Frank Buccialia III would battle through the pack to cross the line second and keep the points lead.

Ray Schmidt stays cool in the desert
Avondale, AZ- Austin Carver started race 2 of the Cup season on the pole and looked to have the checkers in hand but a late race caution brought out a green, white, checkers finish.
