Rain Stops Saturday 171 Speedway STSS Cajun Region Appearance

LEESVILLE, PA – Mother Nature wins this one.

The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco ‘Cajun Region’ event at 171 Speedway in Leesville, La., scheduled for Saturday, May 1 has fallen to rain.

Speedway management will work to secure a make-up date in the coming days.

Saturday’s event was scheduled to be the third round of the Day Motor Sports Cajun Region point series. Tommy Rascoe, the winner at Thunder Valley Speedway in Glenmora, La., leads the championship chase.

In two events run thus far there have been a pair of different winners: Cody Robbins in the opener at Chatham Speedway and Rascoe at Thunder Valley.

Retribution for Rascoe at Thunder Valley, Wins STSS Cajun Region Race No. 2

GLENMORA, LA – After watching a victory slip away in the series opener at Chatham Speedway, Tommy Rascoe gained retribution Saturday night at Thunder Valley Speedway.

Rascoe led through the final lap in the inaugural Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Cajun Region Modified event on April 3 only to watch Cody Robbins drive by for the win.

In event No. 2 of the Day Motor Sports point series, the Converse, La., native picked up the $1,075 victory, leading the 20-lap main from wire-to-wire at the Glenmora, La., bullring.

Rascoe makes the second different winner in as many STSS Cajun Region events.

Rascoe launched off the pole of the main event, but the victory was far from easy.

Prior to the halfway mark, Caleb Dillard ducked to the inside of his father – Greg – to put the Tim Bates-owned No. 18 into second.

Rascoe found a home in the outside lane of the Derek Perkins-promoted oval, while Dillard utilized the low groove. For the entire second half of the event, the pair raced wheel-to-wheel with Greg Dillard lurking in third.

Dillard had pulled even with Rascoe on the 18th lap as the duo encountered slower traffic.

Dillard momentarily had to lift and Rascoe surged back ahead to take the victory, collecting $1,000 from the posted purse plus a $75 bonus for displaying the APE Engines decal on his car.

Many, La.’s Caleb Dillard placed second with Greg Dillard of Robeline, La., third. Keith Badiali of Benton, La., and Thomas Holt of Atlanta, Texas. Holt was the Shed Road Towing and Recovery Hard Charger, receiving an additional $50.

The 20-lap feature was slowed only once by a caution flag.

Heat winners were Cody Robbins (who was slowed by a flat tire in the feature) and Rascoe.

Next up for the series is Event No. 3 on Saturday, May 1 at 171 Speedway in Leesville, La., Race No. 3 of the Day Motor Sports point series. Like ‘Leesville 171 Speedway’ on Facebook or visit the official website at www.171speedway.com. 171 Speedway is located at 12240 Lake Charles Highway Leesville, LA 71446.

Cody Robbins Wins STSS ‘Cajun Region’ Inaugural with Last-Lap Pass at Chatham

CHATHAM, LA – In a career that has produced more than 60 victories, Cody Robbins was missing something.

A big check.

On Saturday night at Chatham Speedway, Robbins won the inaugural Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco ‘Cajun Region’ Modified event in thrilling fashion.

Starting eighth, Robbins cut through the field and passed race-long leader Tommy Rascoe on the final circuit of the 20-lap feature, taking home the oversized check from Victory Lane at Jerry Hobson’s quarter-mile oval.

Robbins has a long resume in a variety of divisions around his Mansfield, La., home including Sprint Cars, Late Models, Factory Stocks and more. Robbins opted to compete with the STSS Cajun Region for ’21 and was making just his second-ever start in a Northeastern-style Modified.

The opening lap of the historic STSS event saw a pair of incidents necessitating complete restarts. Rascoe, who started fourth, emerged with the lead while Robbins swiftly climbed to second.

Lap after lap, corner after corner, Robbins’ No. 7 stalked Rascoe’s No. 9R, looking to the inside.

Ultimately, slower traffic on the last circuit changed the race’s complexion. Rascoe’s car, while negotiating a lapped car, pushed off the bottom and Robbins took advantage, diving through the inside to take the top spot.

“I was hoping we were going to catch the lapped traffic,” Robbins said. “I saw his wheels turn to the left and I knew he (Rascoe) was going to push. I had just enough room to get under him.”

Robbins earned $1,175 for the win: $1,000 from the posted payout, $100 from Shed Road Auto Parts (Bossier City, La.) as the Hard Charger and $75 as the highest-finishing driver with an APE Engines (Natchitoches, La.) decal.

Converse, La.’s Rascoe, who competed with the STSS during the ‘Sunshine Swing’ in Ocala, Fla., back in January, settled for second. Caleb Dillard of Many, La., started sixth, got shuffled back early and drove forward to third in the Tim Bates Painting No. 85. Greg Dillard of Robeline, La., ran inside the top-five for the entire distance, finishing fourth and Benton, La.’s Keith Badiali, who at one point was racing for the lead, finished fifth.

Heat winners were Badiali and Caleb Dillard.

Fourteen STSS Modifieds took part in the opening round of the Day Motor Sports (Tyler, Texas) point series. A year ago, just three cars signed in for the first event at Chatham, demonstrating the growth of the division in the Bayou State.

The next event for the ‘Cajun Region’ is set for Saturday, April 17 at Thunder Valley Speedway in Glenmora, La. Like “The Thunder Valley Speedway” on Facebook to learn more.
