Unofficial Results Legends Heat Races

Stevens, of Griffin, Ga., won the pole position by virtue of his heat race victory and his top speed in Thursday’s qualifying.

“It’s really special to be the fastest guy here,” said Stevens. “There are a lot of cars here and a lot of good drivers. To be on the top feels really good. Hopefully everything will go my way tomorrow and I’ll have good luck and can bring home the money!”

As a result of their first-place heat race finishes, David Ragan will start in second place, followed by Dennis Lambert, Daniel Hemric, Tyler Green, Sean Rayhall, Chad Finchum, Darrell Wallace Jr., David Moyes and Evan Swilling.

A total of 10 Legends Million division heat races were completed Friday to set the top-20 starting spots in Saturday’s A-Feature, and the top two finishers in each heat transferred into the main event. The next 10 positions in the Legends Million starting field will be set by the results of Saturday’s B-Feature races. Two additional spots will be determined Saturday as the winners of the Semi-Pro/Young Lions and Masters division A-Main races may enter the Legends Million field through a “Deal or No Deal.” This option gives them the opportunity to keep their $25,000 and $30,000 purses respectively or forfeit a portion of those winnings to enter the Legends Million. A final promoter’s provisional driver could be added to the A-Feature.

Also on Friday, five heat races were run in both the Masters and Semi-Pro/Young Lions divisions. The top-four finishers in each heat race moved on to set the top-20 starting spots in Saturday’s A-Main races for each division. The remaining 10 spots in each A-Main will be set by Saturday’s B-Feature races.

Clay Hair, of Mt. Pleasant, N.C., won the first of five heat races in the Masters division, putting him on the pole for Saturday’s $30,000-to-win A-Main race.

As a result of their first-place heat race finishes, Tim Brockhouse will start in second place, followed by John Sossoman, Brian Weimer and Jeff Jordan.

Sean Rayhall, of Winston, Ga., won the first of five heat races in the Semi-Pro/Young Lions division, putting him on the pole for Saturday’s $25,000-to-win A-Main race.

As a result of their first-place heat race finishes, Gregory Lang will start in second place, followed by Sean Shalvoy, Jake Knight and Timmy Hill.

The Bandolero Cars participated in the second round of the Bandolero Triple Crown, a three-night event with feature races in each of the three divisions: Bandolero Outlaws, Bandits and Beginner Bandits.

Bandolero feature winners included John Holleman, of Winston-Salem, N.C., in the Bandolero Outlaws division; Clayton Weatherman, of Wentzville, Mo., in the Bandolero Bandits division; and Reed Hatchett, of Knoxville, Tenn., in the Bandolero Beginner Bandits division.

The Legends Million, a one-of-a-kind race featuring a total purse of $1 million, is bringing Legend Car and Bandolero drivers from 36 sates and two foreign countries to the Mecca of Motorsports for the largest grassroots race in history. The A-Feature winner is guaranteed to take home $250,000, and the final spot in the feature is assured $10,000.

Competitors participating in the Legends Million are registered in one of three divisions: Young Lions/Semi-Pro, Masters or The Legends Million, which is open to all drivers.

The Legends Million will conclude Saturday with a full slate of racing action that will crown the champions in the Legends Million A-Feature and Masters and Semi-Pro/Young Lions divisions A-Main races. Spectator gates open and heat races begin at 1 p.m. Saturday’s tickets are just $25 for adults and $5 for children ages 12 and under.
