Hedgecock earned the richest win of his career on Monday night with his $10,052 payday in the 8th Annual Scott Sexton Memorial at 411 Motor Speedway (Seymour, Tenn.). Earlier in the weekend, Cory pocketed $3,000 in Saturday’s Topless Outlaw Series event at Smoky Mountain Speedway (Maryville, Tenn.). Additionally, Hedgecock posted three runner-up finishes throughout his busy weekend.

Hedgecock was one of 40 Schaeffer’s Iron-Man Championship Series entries on hand at 411 Motor Speedway. After laying down the second fastest time in his qualifying group behind Dale McDowell, Hedgecock stormed to a 10-lap heat race victory. He later earned the second-starting position for the A-Main via the redraw.

Cruising mainly in the high groove Hedgecock led all 52 laps of the event and was unchallenged for most of the race. His only threat came when inside-running Colten Burdette closed in on the leader with a dozen laps to go. However, Burdette’s protest was unsuccessful with Hedgecock quickly pulling away to win by nearly two seconds.

“Man, I’m tickled to death,” Hedgecock said in Victory Lane. “This is the [richest] win of my career, so we can’t wait to go somewhere next week.”

Burdette settled for the runner-up spot with Jason Hiett, Scott James, and Kyle Hardy completing the Top-5 finishers.

“We were good up top and everything. Dad finally kept telling me to come down. I saw [Burdette] down there every once in a while, and knew I was in trouble for a moment,” said Hedgecock. “I’m glad he told me to go down and everything … the car was great, and I can’t thank my guys enough. An awesome race.”

Saturday saw Cory enter the Memorial Day Mayhem at Smoky Mountain Speedway. Earning the pole position for the Topless Outlaw Series A-Main via preliminary events, Cory coasted to the win by 1.159 seconds ahead of Chase King, Kyle Courtney, Jesse Lowe, and Austin Nicely. (Michael Moats photo)

That same night, in a stout field of 41 American Crate All-Star Series entries, Cory laid down the fastest time overall in qualifying before capturing a Dash win. Battling with Randy Weaver for the lead near the midway point of the 35-lap feature, Hedgecock was overtaken on lap 19 and was never able to close the distance, scoring him second on the final rundown behind Weaver.

Hedgecock kicked off his Memorial weekend on Friday at Volunteer Speedway (Bulls Gap, Tenn.) for the Topless Outlaw Series sanctioned program. After several rain showers delayed the program into the early morning hours, Hedgecock topped the 29-car field in time trials but dropped one spot in the feature to place second behind Kyle Courtney.

In Friday’s American Crate All-Star Series event at Volunteer Speedway, Cory followed up the second fastest lap in qualifying with a Dash victory. With $2,000 on the line in the feature, Hedgecock fell one position to register another runner-up finish behind Trevor Sise.

May 16, 2020 - Runner-up Finish to Owens in Spring Sizzler at 411

“I think we had a car to win, but running second to the hottest driver in the country right now, I’ll take that any day,” said Hedgecock. “One of his guys signaled for him to move up and it took my line away and that gave him the faster line, too. I think we were going to be quick enough in one and two to get a run on him and maybe try to slide him in [turn] three.”

A stout field of 35 entries converged at the 3/8-mile oval. To start the night, Hedgecock drove his E-Z-GO No. 23 Valley Transport/ Budget Transmissions/ Rocket Chassis/ Eagle Racing Engine Super Late Model to the top of the charts in Time Trials before placing fourth in the Dash.

Starting the $5,000-to-win A-Main in fourth, Cory overtook Casey Roberts for second on lap six and drew close to Owens several times throughout the 40-lapper but was never able to pull alongside the eventual winner. Hedgecock maintained the second spot to the finish, with Josh Rice, Kent Robinson, and Roberts completing the Top-5.
