    LOUDON, Tenn. (07/08/20) – Cory Hedgecock increased his 2020 win tally to five on Saturday night with a dominating performance at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tenn.

    Hedgecock earned $5,000 for the Schaeffer’s Iron-Man Championship Series triumph aboard his E-Z-GO No. 23 Pace Performance/ Budget Transmissions/ Rocket Chassis/ Eagle Racing Engine Late Model.

    “The racetrack was awesome. It was racy. I could go anywhere on the racetrack and it was good,” said Hedgecock. “Dad and everything and us and everybody that’s worked on this thing has got this thing really digging. It’s in the ground good. I’m finally glad to get to more my speed of a race rather than running all the national stuff. We’ve been running really good in those also, but I’ve been very excited to get to one of these regional more so shows that I think is more my speed to see what we could do and here we are, so I’m tickled to death.”

    Drawing 23 Schaeffer’s Iron-Man Championship Series entries for the Independence 40 at Volunteer Speedway, Hedgecock secured the pole position with the fastest lap overall in time trials.

    Leading wire-to-wire, Cory finished 1.486 seconds ahead Michael Chilton, Donald McIntosh, Ryan King, and Kyle Strickler in the 40-lapper.
