CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association Racer Spotlight:

Korey Alexander of Maple Hill, NC (Jacksonville) is this week's racer spotlight. He is only 31 years old & has been racing for 10 years so far. Korey has both a Stocker & Super Stock car. His Stocker is a black 1978 Chevy Camaro aka "Black Jesus" powered by a 350 CI built by Victory Race Engines. His SS car is a 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme aka "Gutless" with a SBC 327 built by Robbie Draughon Powertrain Development. You will mainly find him piloting his 78 Camaro in competition at CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association races. Korey finished in the 8th position in 2021 CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association points series missing our very first race of the year for a bachelor party. Korey states that his most memorable win was the 2021 NHRA Southeast Division 2 National Open race at GALOT Motorsports Park in Stock Eliminator. He would like to give Special Thanks to his wife, Kelsey, his business & employees at Piney Green Electric Company, Robbie Draughon, Redline Speed Shop, his family, & his fur babies! His sponsors include Piney Green Electric Company & Ronny's Muffler Shop. His most epic fail was being .270 on the tree for 2021 Gainesville J/SA Class Eliminations in Stock & losing by .007 to Eric Campolito.

Korey is a "special breed"! 🙂 (love you, mean it) He can't be missed at the track as all you've got to look for is his mullet! Korey & Kelsey are expecting their first child in November & we are all looking forward to welcoming Baby Alexander to the CCRA family! Korey is one of those guys that's always willing to jump in & help a fellow racer when in need. But don't ever expect him to be on time as he'll be late for his own funeral!
If you're planning to be at Virginia Motorsports Park this weekend for the Virginia Nationals, Korey will be debuting a whole new set-up in his Stocker. 🤐🧐 Be sure to stop by Korey's pits at the next race & strike up a conversation with him.

CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association will be back in action on June 4th & 5th at KDS Motorsports. See y'all at the track soon!!

CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association Racer Spotlight:

Hillarey Sloan Marshall is our racer spotlight this week. She is 42 years old, lives in Broadway, NC, & has been racing for 23 years. You will find her wheeling her 1971 Plymouth Duster powered by a 360 CI built by her dad, Tim Sloan of Sloan Racing Engines at CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association as well as NHRA Southeast Division 2 races. Her primary sponsor is of course Sloan Racing Engines! Hillarey's most memorable win is beating her dad in the finals of the CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association at Mooresville Dragway. One of her accomplishments is the NHRA Southeast Division 2 race win at Rockingham Dragway. She would like to give Special Thanks to her husband, Scott Marshall, mom & dad, & Sloan Racing Engines. Hillarey didn't enter the CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association points series in 2021 as she got a late start but still attended as many events as she could. She also got married to her husband, Scott, in November 2021. At our last race of the season at Coastal Plains Raceway Park Dragway, which was the week following their wedding, they had to leave the race early as Scott "misplaced" his new wedding band! Good news is it was found once they got home & that one is now in their safe at home for "safe keepings" 😉!

Hillarey & her family are always willing to help fellow racers at the track as their family business does engines for several of the CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association & NHRA Southeast Division 2 racers. Be sure to stop & tell Hillarey hi at our next race.

CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association will be back in action in 2 weeks at KDS Motorsports. See y'all at the track soon!

CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association Racer Spotlight:

This week we are staying in the Sanford/Broadway, NC area & keeping it in the Sloan Family as we focus on Mr. Tim Sloan. Tim is 70 years young & has been racing for 54 years. The car that you will generally see him in is his 1998 Pontiac Grand Am powered by a Sloan Racing Engines 302 CI. Occasionally you will find him behind the wheel of his daughter Hillarey's 1971 Duster or in Stock the other purple Duster. His primary sponsor is Sloan Racing Engines. Tim also runs CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association as well as NHRA Southeast Division 2 races. Tim's most memorable win is his last win which was in October 2021 for the NHRA Southeast Division 2 National Open Series race at Rockingham Dragway. He claims his most epic fail is running out of fuel & losing to Hillarey in the finals of the CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association at Mooresville Dragway. (I don't think these 2 incidents are the same run but I could be wrong.) He gives Special Thanks to his wife, Sheila, who is always be his side at every race. Tim didn't enter the CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association points series in 2021 as he got a late start but attended most of the races at the end of the season. He did however enter the points for the 2022 season so pay attention to where he will finish this year.

Tim owns & operates Sloan Racing Engines in Sanford, NC. He is a very, well-known engine builder & has been building tons of Stock/Super Stock engines for many years. At most races, you will find Tim & his family helping their fellow racers/customers whenever an issue arises. Stop by his pit area at the next race & tell him hello!
CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association will be back in action in just alittle over a week at KDS Motorsports. Hope everyone has a Happy & safe Memorial Day weekend. See y'all at the track next weekend.

CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association Racer Spotlight

This week we are travelling down to Lexington, NC (The BBQ Capital) to introduce everyone to Mr. Lee Truell. He is 58 years old & has been racing for 21 years. Lee's car is a 2008 Chevy Cobalt powered by a SBC 300 CI built by none other than Sloan Racing Engines. This car was an old Arnie Martel car. You've also seen him in the past little while behind the wheel of both of the Sloan Racing Engines cars as he drove Tim's at the Saturday Farmington Dragway race & then drove Hillarey's at the recent NHRA Southeast Division 2 race at Rockingham Dragway where I'm pretty sure he is down to the finals with plans to complete at an upcoming race. His sponsors include his own business, Truell Grading & Sloan Racing Engines. His most memorable win would be his last win which was in November 2021 at the CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association finale at Coastal Plains Raceway Park Dragway. Lee says his most epic fail is his runner-up finish at the World Finals at Rockingham Dragway when he redlighted. He gives Special Thanks to his wife, Jamie, his family, & of course Sloan Racing Engines! Lee battled all year in 2021 & finished in the 3rd place position for the CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association. Like always, he is hoping to improve that finish this year.

Lee is somewhat on the quiet side but once he gets comfortable around you, he opens up & is a great person to have not only as a competitor but also as a friend. He is always willing to jump in to help a fellow racer in need. You will find him riding his doggie on the golf cart at the track & I think the doggie has him just a tad bit wrapped!!! Lee is finalizing the rebuilding of his engine as we currently speak & will be putting it back in later this week with plans to make it to KDS Motorsports on Friday evening so be sure to stop by his pit area this weekend & give him a shout!!

CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association is back in action for our 3rd stop of the season this weekend at KDS Motorsports. Gates will open on Saturday morning at 10 a.m. with time runs beginning at 2 p.m. We look forward to seeing everyone this weekend & be sure to come hungry so you can enjoy the 🐷🐽 picking on Saturday evening!!!

CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association Racer Spotlight

Lambert Ridings, 51st Birthday Boy today, is this week's racer spotlight. Lambert lives in Columbus, NC & has only been racing a short 4 years but hoping for more years here very soon. His car is a 1985 Chevy Camaro, known as Li'l Aggravation & is powered by a SBC 350 CI built by CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association racer, Mr. Billy Plage. Everyone should be very familiar with this car as his wife, Stacie, has been the driver in the past but she now has a new car. Lambert used to race in the North Division during the old IHRA days & he won several rounds but took a hiatus to be the crew chief for his wife so he doesn't have any wins yet but I'll sure he'll be able to add a few to his resume as soon as he gets back comfortable in the seat. Lambert will tell you that his most epic fail is telling Stacie to drive her car like a man & it then breaking but Stacie has a different story for his most epic fail 😉! Stacie says it is getting beat by a pregnant lady in a station wagon (Emily Stott) & she was even tapping the brakes on him at the finish line. It sounds like Lambert wants to forget about that run 😀! He gives Special Thanks for his wife Stacie & daughter Julia whom is his 2 biggest supporters!!! Lambert & Stacie doesn't attend all of the CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association races due to distance (& of course fuel cost nowadays) but when they do, they are always very friendly riding around on their golf cart & stopping to talk to fellow racers & I'm sure always willing to help if needed. They even load a fellow racer their new car at the last race of the 2021 season as he was battling for the points championship.

Be sure to stop by Lambert's pit at the next race & tell him hello!
We hope to see both Lambert & Stacie behind the wheel of both cars at our next race in July at Farmington Dragway. More details on that race coming very soon.

CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association Racer Spotlight

This week's racer spotlight will travel down to Greenville, NC & focus on Mr. Monnie Morris. He is 74 years young & have been racing for 55 years! His daughter, Wendy, has helped me with some valuable information & pictures for the one. Wendy was able to attend our last race at KDS Motorsports & this is the first race that she has been able to attend in AGES. Thanks again Wendy, very appreciated!!! His car is a 1973 Ford Maverick powered by a SBF 302 CI built by Richard James & Jesse Benson (recently deceased). His most memorable win was when him & his partner, Mr. Tommy Hussey, won Stock Eliminator at the the 1974 IHRA Pro-Am Nationals at Rockingham Dragway. He claims that one of his accomplishments is winning the CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association race at Coastal Plains Raceway Park Dragway in 2020. Mr. Monnie would like to give Special Thanks to his son & crew chief, Kelly, as well as Johnny Rouse & Troy McLawhorn for all of their help. His most funny racing story will be from May 1984 (article included in pics) when he raced against his daughter, Wendy for 1st place. Monnie came out victorious on this run & Wendy says it was "embarrassing for her". Wendy states "she started following her dad around the track, toting tools, running to the fence to see every run, etc. from a tot in the early 70's". Then he taught her to race & gave her a car at a pretty young age. Wendy continued to race until her college years & then she also worked a couple seasons at KDS Motorsports. Due to the age difference between her & her brother, Kelly, he came along much later in the game. Kelly's experiences have been different & he has been the "crew master" for a long time. Mr. Monnie has been reluctant to "turn over the reins" however, he is FINALLY going to let her PLUS 40 year old brother get his training wheels 😉 & they are going to start working with Kelly to get some driving experience. Looks like some of the roles may be reversed soon & Mr. Monnie will be helping Kelly in the burnout box. We all at CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association & your fellow racers are excited for you & here to help anyway possible! Kelly, you can do it!! 👊👊👊

Mr. Monnie is an all around quiet competitor but don't take him lightly as he is very deadly behind the wheel of his Maverick. CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association appreciates Mr. Monnie & Kelly racing with us & hopes that they are able to continue to support our association. Our next race is in July at Farmington Dragway. More details on that race next week.

CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association Racer Spotlight:

Clinton, NC is home of this week's racer spotlight as we put the focus on Curt Smith Jr. He is 31 years old & has been racing for 12 years. His car is a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro powered by a SBC 350 CI built by his dad, Curtis Smith & known as Shakedown 2. His sponsors include Deacon Jones Automotive Group & Curtis Smith Trucking, LLC. Some of his notable accomplishments include being a Third Generation NHRA driver. As well as being the grandson of multi-time NHRA Record Holder & IHRA National Event winner Earl Smith & son of Curtis Smith, IHRA World Champion & All Time Winningest IHRA Stock Eliminator Driver. Curt Jr. gives Special Thanks to his Curtis Smith, Ingrid Smith, Catherine Smith, Earl & Christine Smith, & Eugene & Dotty Carlsward. You will find Curt Jr. competing in the CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association as well as NHRA Southeast Division 2 races. In 2021, Curt Jr. finished in a 4 way tie for the 23rd points position as he was unable to attend several of the events. He is looking to better himself for this season's points tally. Not only is Deacon Jones Automotive Group one of his sponsors, he works at Deacon Jones Chevrolet Buick GMC of Clinton so if you're ever in the market for a vehicle, be sure to give him a shot!

Curt Jr. & his entire family are familiar faces around the local tracks & have been for many years due to their success. Curt Jr. is looking to follow in his dad & granddad's footsteps by winning a NHRA National Event. He just recently competed at the Four Wide Nationals at zMAX DRAGWAY and was interviewed by Joe Castello. CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association appreciates the support of Curt Jr. & the entire Smith Family & hope to see y'all at our next race. Be sure to stop by their pit area & chat racing with them. You can also follow his racing on his 2 websites which are posted below.
