“Finally got the Ice Bowl! We were fast as hell all weekend long, and it’s always great to get the first win out of the way early,” Hedgecock said. “We’re hitting the ground running this year, and I appreciate everyone who makes this program possible. We’ll head to Volusia (Speedway Park) in a few weeks for the Sunshine Nationals and see if we can’t go to Victory Lane there too.”

Cory Hedgecock traveled to Talladega Short Track (Eastaboga, Ala.) on Friday afternoon to compete with the Crate Racin’ USA Winter Shootout Series during the 31st annual Ice Bowl. Drawing a stout field of 45 cars, Cory qualified fastest in his group before charging to a 10-lap heat race win.

Earning the pole position for Saturday’s A-Main, Hedgecock led flag-to-flag in the 40-lap affair to claim his first win of the season and a $3,000 prize. Jake Knowles, Josh Adkins, Jody Knowles, and Austin Horton followed him across the line.

The triumph came with the Drydene Xtreme DIRTcar Series and marked his 14th of the year.

“We had to work for that one, but what a way to cap the year off with a win! I fell back to third on the start, and by the time I got back to second, (Ross) Bailes had over a three-second lead on us. My car was good enough to run him down and pass him with two laps to go. We had a ton of speed in the feature and got one more (win) to end the year,” Hedgecock said. “We added a new sponsor this week in Powers Machine, and I want to thank them and all of my sponsors for all of the support they give me. We’ll take a few weeks off and get ready to kick off the 2022 season with a trip to 411 Motor Speedway on New Year’s Day for the Hangover.”

On Saturday afternoon, Cory Hedgecock visited I-75 Raceway (Sweetwater, Tenn.), where he put a wrap on his 2021 campaign with the Drydene Xtreme DIRTcar Series event.

With 25 Late Models entered, Hedgecock clocked in fourth-fastest before placing second in his heat race. Tracking down race-long leader Ross Bailes with three circuits remaining in the feature, Cory snuck away with his 14th win of the season, which came ahead of Bailes, Carson Ferguson, Ben Watkins, and Eli Beets. He claimed $5,000 for his late-race victory.

Cory ends the 2021 season with 14 wins, 36 Top-5 finishes, and 40 Top-10 finishes in 55 starts.

After a couple sliders, some crossovers, and some good clean racing with Pierce (McCarter), I was able to get the lead around the halfway point and held on for another Iron-Man Late Model Series win. One more race this coming Saturday at I-75 (Raceway), and then we are done until the Hangover at 411 (Motor Speedway) on January 1.

“Thanks to Rusty and Brody with Littleton Motorsports for their help as well as everyone who supports this team.”

Cory Hedgecock made the short trip to 411 Motor Speedway (Seymour, Tenn.) on Saturday afternoon to wrap up the Valvoline Iron-Man Southern Series slate with the sixth annual The Leftover.

In a stout field of 40 cars, Hedgecock’s third-fastest qualifying lap in his group locked him into the fifth-starting position for the feature. After sliding ahead of early pacesetter Pierce McCarter at the halfway mark of the 40-lapper, Cory kept a charging Jensen Ford at bay in the closing laps to secure his 13th win of the 2021 campaign and a $5,000 prize.
