Milliken And Batten Earn Wins In East Coast Swing

(Charlotte, NC) On the lone doubleheader weekend of 2017 for the FUEL Racing Series, Willie Milliken and Michael Batten earned their first FUEL wins of the season at Fayetteville Motor Speedway and County Line Raceway respectively. Remarkably, the series extended its streak of competitive events without a repeat winner as a different team has visited Victory Lane in each event thus far in 2017.

Friday's action at Fayetteville was filled with drama and tension that began with championship leader Matt Long losing an engine in qualifying. Local standout Shawn Sewell would earn the Chevrolet Performance Pole Position with a 17.692 lap around the 4/10 mile venue. Sewell would also win the Renegade Race Fuels Dash, but that victory did not come easy. Sewell led early in the Dash but temporarily surrendered the lead to a hard charging Willie Milliken. Milliken made an eye-opening pass on the outside to briefly secure the lead but the persistent Sewell regained the lead on the inside and ultimately scored the Dash victory. Zack Cox then took the checkered flag in the JRi Shocks Heat Race to set the stage and complete the starting grid for the main event.

Fast Qualifier and Dash winner Shawn Sewell set the pace early in the main event. It didn't take long for the action to heat up as Milliken set his sights on the leader while a three-way battle between Steve Banal, Justin Williams, and Bryan Mullis ensued just behind the lead duo. Sewell was strong early on and kept Milliken at bay. Banal, looking to gain valuable points in the championship battle, raced with poise inside the Top 5 during the early stages. Milliken continued to work multiple lines and would eventually slide by Sewell for the race lead. Banal would gain valuable track position in the runner-up spot while side by side racing continued behind them. Milliken controlled the event the rest of the way and was followed to the checkered flag by Banal, Sewell, and Williams. Milliken became the 5th different FUEL winner in the 2017 season and Banal headed to County Line Raceway tied with Long for the championship lead.

The following day at County Line Raceway, the FUEL Late Models would make their first visit of the season to the Elm City, NC oval. With the 2017 series season finale scheduled at County Line, it was a sneak preview as to what the teams and fans can look forward to in November.

In qualifying it was Michael Batten earning the pole with a new series record time of 14.382 seconds. In the Renegade Race Fuels Dash, Batten would feverishly battle with previous CLR FUEL winner Dustin Mitchell. Batten would hold on for the Dash win over Mitchell, Steve Banal, Christian Joyner and Bryan Mullis.

In the JRI Shocks Heat Race, it was Michael Rouse holding off a hard charging Matt Long. Rouse overcame his heartbreak from mechanical woes during the parade lap on Friday night at Fayetteville and Long was fielding a backup car after losing an engine on Friday night.

In the feature Michael Batten jumped out to the early lead over Banal, Mitchell and Christian Joyner. After a few early caution periods, a long green flag run ensued with Batten showed dominance over the long run, as he pulled away from Banal, Mitchell, and Joyner. The battle for 2nd stayed red hot throughout the feature as Banal and Joyner battled door to door until Joyner finally took 2nd for good over Banal. Down to the end it was all Batten as he extended his lead and earned his first career FUEL Racing Series win.

The competition within the series continues to remain at an all-time high. So far in 2017, the FUEL Racing Series has 6 different winners in 6 events and has also featured 5 different pole sitters. Up next for the FUEL Racing Series Late Models will be a return visit to Lavonia Speedway in Lavonia, GA on Saturday, August 12th for a $3000 to win/$300 to start main event.
