Cory Hedgecock earned $5,000 for his victory at Volunteer.
What won the race: Polesitter Cory Hedgecock of Loudon, Tenn., outran fifth-starting Michael Chilton to win Saturday’s Independence 40 at Volunteer Speedway. Hedgecock finished 1.486 seconds ahead of Chilton to earn $5,000 for his third career Schaeffer’s Iron-Man Series feature win.
Quotable: “The racetrack was awesome. It was racy. I could go anywhere on the racetrack and it was good,” said Hedgecock. “Dad and everything and us and everybody that’s worked on this thing has got this thing really digging. It’s in the ground good. I’m finally glad to get to more my speed of a race rather than running all the national stuff. We’ve been running really good in those also, but I’ve been very excited to get to one of these regional more so shows that I think is more my speed to see what we could do and here we are, so I’m tickled to death.”
Key notes: Hedgecock’s previous Iron-Man Series triumphs came May 25 at 411 Motor Speedway in Seymour, Tenn., and in 2018 at Volunteer; he’s the tour’s first repeat winner of the season. … Eighteen of the 22 starters finished the race, with 14 completing 40 laps. … Second-starting Jensen Ford of Piney Flats, Tenn., faded to 10th. … It was the second night of a weekend doubleheader for the series; Jason Trammell of Knoxville, Tenn., won Friday’s race at Tazewell (Tenn.) Speedway.
On the move: Logan Roberson started 13th and finished sixth; David Crabtree started 16th and finished ninth.
Winner's sponsors: Hedgecock’s Rocket Chassis is powered by an Eagle Racing Engine and sponsored by E-Z-Go, VooDoo Technology, Valley Transport, Pace Performance, K&P Used Cars, Five Star Hyundai, Eagle Racing Engines, Boydbilt Fabrication and Timeless Memories Photography.
Points chase: Heading into the weekend, Ryan King (218 points) of Seymour, Tenn., led Michael Chilton (208), David Payne (201), Pearson Williams (181) and Jake Knowles (180).
