Red-hot Hedgecock sweeps CRUSA weekend; preps for Eldora

Cory Hedgecock’s march through the 2023 season continued over the weekend with a clean sweep of Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series action in Tennessee and Alabama aboard his W.E. Hardscapes & Masonry / Noble Knights Construction Services / No. 23 Currin Construction / BMF Race Car / Eagle Racing Engine Model.

Cory pocketed a $5,000 winner’s check at Tennessee’s I-75 Raceway on Friday night before besting the Golden Hornet 50 at Talladega Short Track on Saturday to snare the $10,000 top prize. With the double trips to Victory Lane, Cory holds 10 wins on the 2023 campaign.

“This BMF Race Car just keeps getting the job done week after week, and it’s giving me even more notes to share with our customers, and that gets me fired up. Car was on point all weekend, and my team busted their butts. End result was two big checks for the shop wall,” Hedgecock commented. “We’re ready to head to Eldora (Speedway) this week. That place hasn’t been the nicest to me, but we’re going to keep digging until we get it figured out. Thanks to everyone who supports this program!”

Cory Hedgecock entered his K&P Used Cars No. 23 Late Model into battle at I-75 Raceway (Sweetwater, Tenn.) on Friday to kick off a pair of events with the Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series.

Pulling off a clean sweep of the program, Hedgecock followed up the fast time honors with a flag-to-flag victory in the feature. He held off Ricky Weiss despite a deflating flat tire to secure his ninth win of the season and $5,000 payday.

Weiss, Chip Brindle, Mark Whitener, and Blake Craft completed the top-five finishers in the 50-lap affair.

For the Golden Hornet 50 on Saturday at Talladega Short Track (Eastaboga, Ala.), Cory set a blistering pace in time trials with a 14.369-second lap before placing first in his heat race.

Once again leading flag-to-flag in the main event, Hedgecock soared to his second win in as many nights and 10th of the 2023 campaign.

He banked a $10,000 prize ahead of Parker Martin, Trynt Lloyd, Ryan King, and Cruz Skinner.

The team will shift gears to Super Late Model racing this weekend with a trip to Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) for the Dirt Late Model Dream XXIV. The crown jewel weekend includes twin $12,000-to-win programs on Thursday and Friday with a $129,000-to-win mega finale on Saturday night.
