The reigning Late Model Stock champ struggles on the last re-start, but holds off Frank Deiny Jr.
RADFORD, Va. - Frank Deiny Jr. made it a two-for-two weekend, winning at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, N.C., on Friday night, and at Motor Mile Speedway on Saturday night. The wins capped off a long week of travel for Frankie as he crossed the Virginia-North Carolina border four times in order to practice and race at each facility. "We tested some this week," the Mechanicsville, Va., driver said."We wanted to try some things with the Bailey's Pontiac and fine-tune on our setups."Deiny's teams were able to parlay what they learned in those test sessions into two impressive wins. On Burlington Times-News night at Ace Speedway, Deiny qualified on the pole with a lap time of 15.95 seconds.After a mandatory redraw for position, he started the in third position. When the green flag dropped for the 75-lap late model feature, the Bailey's Pontiac quickly moved to the front, taking over the lead on Lap 8.A late-race caution bunched up the field, but Deiny was able to hold on to the lead, taking the checkered flag a couple car lengths ahead of second-place driver, Robert Turner.Deiny inherited the pole since the starting line up for the late model field was determined by the point standings. Deiny took over the lead at the start of the race and never looked back.Late-race cautions stripped away his straightaway lead, but he was still able to hold off Chad Harris in a green-white-checkered finish to collect his ninth win of the season (six at MMS, three at Ace).For the second week in a row, Deiny led from flag-to-flag in the late model feature."I have to thank the guys on my crew," Deiny said.Deiny continues to hold the top position in the point standings at both Ace and Motor Mile. This weekend Deiny will compete in the Setzer-Wiles Memorial, presented by Dick Shirley Chevrolet at Ace Speedway on Friday.Then on Saturday, he will run the WDBJ 100 at Motor Mile Speedway.
Frank Deiny Jr. will be in a different role when SoBo opens 2008 season with running of Easter Bunny 150
South Boston Speedway : News South Boston Speedway Frank Deiny Jr. will be in a different role when SoBo opens 2008 season with running of Easter Bunny 150 SOUTH BOSTON, VA. - Nearly every time Frank Deiny Jr. is at South Boston Speedway he is mentioned as one of the favorites to claim a victory. Deiny might be in Victory Lane following the season-opening Easter Bunny 150 Saturday afternoon at South Boston Speedway, but it will be as a role of car owner instead of car driver. Deiny hasn't completely thrown in the towel on racing in NASCAR Whelen All American Series events, but his main focus when it comes to Late Model Stock Car Division competition this season will be on the five cars racing out of the FDJ Motorsports stables in Ashland, Va. "My main goal here is [Johnson and Gibbs]," Deiny said following a recent practice session at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval. Deiny will also field Late Model Stock Car teams in 2008 at Motor Mile Speedway in Virginia. While Deiny will not compete for a track championship as a driver at South Boston Speedway this season, he does plan on strapping on his helmet for "two or three [Late Model] races" during the year. "I plan on running two or three Late Model races here this year," Deiny said, adding that he was doing so "to keep Justin and Dude honest. I can't let them show me up too much," he joked. The 34-year-old Deiny definitely has plenty of experience in his knowledge bank when it comes to South Boston Speedway. In 2001, Deiny claimed the Late Model Stock Car Championship at South Boston Speedway for the second of five career track titles he has secured. He also has recorded victories in over 100 Late Model Stock Car Division races during his years behind the wheel. "I stopped counting when I got to 100," Deiny said. "It's more than that, but I'm not sure how much more." The goal for Deiny now, however, is to begin collecting victories as a car owner. "That would be nice," Deiny said.
