Madden, Brandon Overton, Donald McIntosh, and Ryan King trailed him to the checkers in the 35-lap affair.

“I mean, top three last night (at Volunteer Speedway) and top three again tonight, with the same guys and everything, just a little bit of a different order,” Hedgecock said. “Running in front of these two guys, man I’m tickled to death. We’ve got this thing rolling.

“Man, I was just trying … we’ve made a lot of laps here, so I mean nine times out of 10 it’s protect the bottom and you can prevail. Man, I’m happy.”

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.

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.
