David Payne Pockets $4,053 Payday in Exciting North Carolina State Championship
Round three of the Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals Series took center stage on Friday night, April 23 at Ray Cook's Tri-County Race Track and local favorite David Payne came out on top of an exciting race at the 1/4-mile oval dubbed as the "Tiger Pit." David, who knocked down the quickest lap in Group A during the qualifying session to earn the pole position for the 40-lap headliner, utilized heavy lapped traffic to grab the point from race long leader Cory Hedgecock on the 18th circuit. The Murphy, North Carolina ace then fought back several challenges and slidejobs from Hedgecock over the final 22 laps to claim the $4,053 top prize in the inaugural running of the 'North Carolina State Championship.'

Hedgecock, who paced the field for the first 17 laps from the outside of the front row, settled for a strong runner-up performance - a mere 0.290 seconds behind Payne. Series point leader Dale McDowell blasted from his ninth starting spot to round out the podium in third. Another local hotshoe Shawn Chastain brought his #x15 machine home in the fourth position, while series regular Donald McIntosh grabbed the final spot inside of the top five.

"This is a racy place and Ray (Cook) does a great job with it," exclaimed Payne following the triumph. "There at the end, I could feel my car start going away a little bit, so I started trying to move around. I was searching a little bit and I could feel him a time or two, but I really appreciate (Cory) Hedgecock racing me clean."

David's win last night at the Brasstown, North Carolina bullring marked his first career visit to Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals Series victory lane. His win came aboard a Gibson Motorsports Capital Race Car powered by a Jay Dickens Racing Engine with sponsorship from Payne Excavating, Interstate Welding, PPM Racing Products, American Racer Tires South, Base Racing Fuels, and Schaeffer's Oil.

An 18 car field assembled at Tri-County Race Track and the feature lineup was set entirely from the qualifying session. David Payne paced Group A with a lap of 12.513 seconds, while Cory Hedgecock posted the quickest time in Group B and overall with a fast lap of 12.360 seconds.
