FUEL Introduces CT525 Rebuild Program

After considerable research and multiple discussions with longtime series partner City Chevrolet, FUEL Racing Series officials have agreed to introduce a CT525 Engine Rebuild Program. The announcement of this program provides an option for the CT525 engine owner that is approved for FUEL Racing Series competition and takes effect immediately.

"Our partners at City Chevrolet continue to support FUEL and the introduction of this CT525 Engine Rebuild Program is just another example of their commitment to our growth" explained FUEL Racing Series Director Jason Atkins. "First and foremost, we knew that our CT525 competitors needed a series approved option to repair their engines. Our steel block engine competitors have the option to repair their engines and our CT525 teams deserve that very same opportunity. With the creation of this program, CT525 teams now have a way to get series approved repairs to their engines and are not forced to purchase a new engine in order to compete in FUEL Racing Series events. In order to preserve the integrity of this process, a binding contract between the series and approved engine rebuilder has been secured. Any series approved CT525 engine rebuilds will be certified with documentation and FUEL Racing Series Seals."

At this time and upon recommendation from our partners at City Chevrolet, FUEL Racing Series approved rebuilds are only available at Lamb Racing Engines. The Inman, South Carolina business has a long standing partnership with City Chevrolet and the series. For more information, please contact Lamb Racing Engines representative Kenny Lamb at 864-578-9508

Emory Stays Hot With 311 Victory

(Pine Hall, NC) Robbie Emory continued his impressive streak of Top 5 finishes and took another important step towards his first series championship with a $3000 victory Saturday night at 311 Motor Speedway.

Emory topped the charts in Renegade Race Fuels Time Trials with a lap of 16.927 seconds. In Hoosier Racing Tire Heat Race #1, Emory grabbed the lead as Jay Sessoms would battle with former series champion Jonathan Edwards Jr. for the 2nd position. Emory would lead all 8 laps while Edwards Jr. would edge out Sessoms for the runner-up position on the final lap. In FK Rod Ends Heat Race #2, Steve Banal took the lead at the drop of the green. Shaun Harrell would slide high in Turn 3 and surrender the 2nd spot to Justin Williams. However, Harrell would quickly regain the position and follow Banal to the finish line ahead of Williams.

In The Direct Racing Industry Virtual Expo Main Event, Emory and Banal would lead the field to the opening green flag. Emory vaulted to the lead initially while Edwards and Banal battled just behind the race leader. Edwards was solid and held the spot before ultimately giving way to Banal on a restart. Derrick Ramey, who started from the 8th position, quickly began moving towards the Top 5. However, the hard charger of the race was Matthew Nance. After starting 13th, Nance worked his way towards the front of the field as several drivers contended for a solid finish. Though Emory would lead all 40 laps, Banal closed in on the leader as the two series veterans navigated lap traffic late in the event. Once the leaders got back in clean air, Emory rebuilt a sizable margin and paced the field the rest of the way to earn his 3rd career FUEL Racing Series victory. Banal, Edwards, Ramey and Williams rounded out the Top 5.

Up next for the FUEL Late Models will be a Saturday, October 6th trip to Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, SC for the 2nd Annual Tribal Nationals.
