Hedgecock raced from fifth on the starting grid to finish second in his E-Z-GO No. 23 Pace Performance/ Budget Transmissions/ Rocket Chassis/ Eagle Racing Engine Late Model, posting his best career LOLMDS finish.

Hedgecock was one of 38 entries on hand for Tennessee’s Action Track 50 at 411 Motor Speedway. Following the third fastest lap in his time trial group, Cory posted a runner-up finish in his heat behind Jimmy Owens, which positioned him fifth on the starting grid for the $12,000-to-win main event.

In the 50-lap affair, Hedgecock battled inside the Top-5 throughout the race. In the closing laps, he avoided a melee in lapped traffic to claim the runner-up spot behind Owens. Jonathan Davenport, Shane Clanton, and Shanon Buckingham rounded out the Top-5.

The young gun was all smiles after climbing from his car to stand on the podium. “We are absolutely happy with that finish. We appreciate everyone coming out and supporting us. Hats off to Jimmy, he was definitely fast. I saw Overton and Hardy wearing each other out and I thought they were going to wreck in front of me and tear my stuff all up. We knew if we could finish behind that 20 car it was going to be a good night.”

In a field of 42 cars for Saturday’s LOLMDS E-Z-GO 50 at Talladega Short Track (Eastaboga, Ala.), Hedgecock secured his spot into the $12,000-to-win finale with a third place finish in his heat. Coming one spot shy of a Top-5 finish, Cory jumped up six spots in the 50-lapper to place sixth.
