MECHANICSBURG, PA (September 18, 2017) - A star-studded field of 41 UMP Modified drivers from around the world descended on the 1/2 mile Williams Grove Speedway tonight for 40 laps of heart-pounding action. Once the dust settled - and there was a lot of dust, Bakersfield, CA driver Dylan Wilson parked his #80 mount in a familiar spot, victory lane.
“It feels really good to win here at VLR and Williams Grove,” Wilson said. “I think the 78 (2nd place finisher Hank Taylor) was faster than me at the end so it would've been interesting on the last lap if he didn't clip the wall there. I was just trying to be smooth and not make any mistakes there at the end.”

BRASLETON, GA (September 14, 2017) - With 27 of sim racing's top drivers behind him and a steady line of lapped traffic ahead of him, Shane James had to work extra hard to pick up his first career victory at VLR in the Super Late Models on Wednesday night.
The Bright, IN driver blistered the 3/8" mile red-clay oval with a 13.704 lap time in qualifying to earn the pole over Howard Weaver for the 100-lap main event. However, Weaver would use a great initial start to power to the lead on lap three after battling side-by-side until clearing James.

BRASELTON, GA (September 11, 2017) - John Fidler etched his name into the history books at VLR on Monday night, becoming the first ever winner of the VLR Mod Madness series. It wouldn't be easy, however, as Fidler had to survive an epic battle for the lead in the closing laps to hang on in a race that saw the leaders go four wide with ten laps to go.
Third-starting Fidler quickly worked his way into second on the initial start of the race, moving in just behind Bakersfield, CA driver Dylan Wilson. The race went caution free for the first 30 laps, and Fidler was able to close in on the rear bumper of Wilson by lap 20.
