Music City Readies for Second 2006 ISCARS Appearance

Eric Wilson leads the ISCARS title chase as the series revisits the track where he took home his second career ISCARS win earlier this year.
ORMOND BEACH, FL (August 7, 2006) – If the second act of a play is supposed to be a continuation of the first, then the August 11 event at Music City Motorplex should be the equivalent of a knuckle-biting whodunit mystery for race fans.

Eric Wilson won the first event there in June, but those following him have a score to settle this coming weekend and will try their best to slay the historic track for a payday in victory lane.

Wilson picked up his second career ISCARS Dash Touring win at the facility earlier this year but was pursued closely by Jake Hobgood, Danny Bagwell, and Johnny Chapman. Coincidentally, those three drivers are also Wilson’s closest pursuers in the ISCARS Dash points this season. A scant 54 point margin separates the top four drivers entering this weekend’s event.

Jake Hobgood has gone winless so far this season in ISCARS competition, but should be a threat to win this weekend at the .596-mile oval in Nashville, Tenn. The South Carolina driver sat on the pole for the last event here until adjustments on his car forced him to the rear of the field, and he eventually had to settle for second to Wilson.

Bagwell, the latest series winner at Shenandoah Speedway, should also be a contender at the high-banked oval in Music City USA. He sat on the outside pole of the June event and ran second for most of the race until fading at the end. The 40 points he is behind Wilson should also add motivation to the Alabama driver as a bad race by Wilson could propel Bagwell to the series point lead.

Nashville’s Music City Motorplex is by far the fastest track that the Dash Series visits this season with average lap speeds approaching 110 miles per hour. “That's a tough track to get around because these Dash cars are flying there,” said Randy Humphrey, driver of the No. 93 Fatheadz Sunglasses/Joe Gibbs Racing Oil Pontiac. Humphrey cut his teeth on the Nashville quarter-mile track in legends competition.

The ISCARS Dash Touring “Music City 100” will be run in conjunction with the local stars and their weekly progam at the Music City Motorplex on Friday, August 11, and tickets are still available by contacting the speedway via the internet at http://www.musiccitymotorplex.com or by phone at (615) 726-1818.

Other Notes of Interest:

ISCARS Dash Touring drivers, Danny Bagwell and Ray Paprota will make a return visit the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital in Nashville on Thursday, August 10, between 2 and 4 pm. Bagwell will have his car on display near the front entrance with both drivers being available for autographs and photos. As in the previous visit, the drivers were most accommodating in giving the young patients a close up look at the race car.

ISCARS Dash Touring and Music City Motorplex have invited former patients of Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital and their families to attend the event Friday night.
