Results from Week 3 of Furious Four Series at Atlanta Motor Speedway
Legends and Bandolero drivers took to the Quarter-Mile "Thunder Ring" at Atlanta Motor Speedway in the penultimate race of the Furious Four Series on Saturday afternoon.
Jensen Jorgensen of Stockbridge earned the win in the first feature of the afternoon in the Pro division. Following a lengthy caution due to an oil down, Jorgensen was patient on the ensuing restart. He gave up to lead to Russell Fleeman of Dacula who flew past Jorgensen into turn four. Fleeman slid out of the grove on the pass which allowed Jorgensen to regain the lead heading to the white flag. Jorgensen then cruised to the checkered flag for his first win in the Furious Four Series. William Plemons III finished second while Joshua Hicks of Senoia was third.
In the Masters division, pole sitter Bill Plemons Jr. of Locust Grove notched his second win of the Furious Four Series and added to his division points lead. In the race for second, Mark Swan of Athens held off Wade Brewer of Hampton for the position.
With one race remaining in the Furious Four series, Cody Hall of Griffin pulled back within striking distance of a division championship with a win in the Semi-Pro feature race. Hall started on the inside of row two and chased down pole sitter Rafe Slate of Eatonton on lap 13. Hall looked to the outside and then slipped to the inside of the track and past Slate on the front stretch for lead. Over the final eight laps, Hall held off Slate and Christopher Clanton of Brooks to post the victory.
Clay Thompson of Bowersville dominated the Young Lion's feature race. Thompson led from flag to flag and held off Griffin's Cale Hall over the final eight laps for the win. Hunter Johnson of Griffin finished third.
In the Chargers division feature, Hampton's Parker Brewer led all 20 laps to earn the win. Despite half a dozen restarts, Brewer was too strong for the rest of the field. His only challenge came from his brother Pierce, who finished second, and third place finisher Brandon Collins of Hampton.
Kenny Brady of Marietta and Blaise Maddox of Locust Grove entered the third race of the Furious Four Series tied for the top spot in the Outlaws division point standings. Maddox qualified on the pole and led all 20 laps to earn the win and move into first in the division point standings. Maddox held off the field following four cautions including the final restart that allowed Brady to pull up to his back bumper for the final seven laps. Maddox now leads Brady by three points for first in the division point standings.
Kenneth Henderson of Alto won his third consecutive Bandits feature race to add to his division lead in the Furious Four Series. Henderson lost the lead twice throughout the race but battled back each time to post the win. Grant Thompson of Mobile, AL powered past Henderson on the second lap of the race for the lead but could not hold on to a loose race car that spun out in turn four on lap 3 which allowed Henderson to get back to the point. Carson Ruark of Suwanee then got by Henderson on lap nine but could only hold the lead for seven laps. Henderson again took advantage of a mistake as Ruark got loose on the exit of turn four. From the front, Henderson held off the field over the final four laps to capture the checkered flag.
Cole McKeehan of Winder took advantage of a pair of cautions on lap nine to get to the front of the field and drover to victory lane in the Beginner Bandolero feature race. McKeehan held off Garrett Erwin of Covington, who ran second for much of the race, as well as Brody Graham of Flowery Branch over the final 11 laps.
Championships will be on the line in the final race of the Furious Four Series on Saturday, May 18th. Infield admission is available for spectators wishing to watch Furious Four racing, and passes may be purchased at the Security Command Building near the Speedway's main entrance.
