National Titles on the Line at Barnesville This Weekend


CONCORD, NC - While it may just be the second race of the season for the RLV Tuned Exhaust Products Gold Cup Series, national championship hopes hang in the balance for drivers in the 8 national classes this weekend at Lamar County Speedway in the Barnesville Bash.

Drivers eligible for a title will have to have entered in all 4 of their respective class races at the 2 venues this season, the March Southeast Showdown at 103rd Street Sports Complex in Jacksonville, Florida, as well as this weekend in Barnesville, Georgia.

The CIK LO206 Senior class is a virtual deadlock between bothers James and Justin Vanderzee, with Brian Collins and Michael Gay in the hunt.

Brian Van Cleve holds a pretty substantial lead over Kevin Lanyi in the Water Medic Junior LO206 class, with Elmer Edmonson, Austin Williamson, and Macon Moore making up the current top 5.

Williamson is looking to take down the GT Machine Junior Pro Gas class, as he has a strong advantage over Edmonson, with Van Cleve and Moore the top 4.

20 tallies is all that separates points leader Brad Farmer from Timothy Clark in Masters Senior competition, with Tim Stiefel, Kevin Medearis, and Vernon Sparks chasing the top 2.

Owen Lloyd holds a good lead over Camryn Reed in the Boon and Sons Sportsman LO206 Class, while Blake Boon looks to secure the GT Machine Sportsman Pro Gas top honors, sporting a healthy lead over Camden Gruber.
