After a two day Hurricane Harvey rain delay the Tyler County Speedway was finally able to present the 49th Annual Hillbilly Hundred. Over 260 entrants would brave the mud and take to the ‘Bullring’ with Hillbilly gold in their eyes.
Picking up the coveted hardware was Jonathan Davenport holding off 17th starting Tim McCreadie to secure his first Hillbilly 100 victory and claim the $25,000 in a highly entertaining race. The best racers in the nation would use up the entire surface that the ‘Bullring’ would present as rim riding, slide jobs and three wide battles was all over the speedway for the entire 100 lap distance.
Kyle Lukon would snare the win in the FASTRAK ‘Brown Jug 30’ with Jacob Hawkins blasting from his 11th starting spot to secure his second consecutive win in the ‘Hillbilly 50’. KC Burdette would travel in from racing in Illinois to post the win in the White Lightnin’ 30 AMRA Modified event over a stout field of 41 emod racers. Tom Sigler would capture the EDGE Hotmod ‘Lil’ Hilly 20’, while Ryan Saffell would nab the Modlite ‘Sour Mash’ 20. Dennis Adkins would put a stop to the Tennants 4 Cylinder domination and hand them their first loss of the season. Adkins would collect the ‘bounty’ and $1100 for his efforts in winning the ‘Ridge Runner 15’. Gage Stalder and George Casto III would pick up wins in the Gear 2 Graphics MWRA Mini Wedge division.
A big thanks goes out to all those who helped pull off the 49th edition of the Hillbilly Hundred and to all the fans and drivers for their patience as we dealt with Hurricane Harvey’s muddy aftermath.
Big news from legendary promoter Carl Short was announced as the 2018 version of the Hillbilly Hundred will celebrate it’s 50th running and what better way than to pay the winner of the ‘granddaddy’ of all dirt late model majors an unprecedented $50,000 to the winner.
