McCumbee tops in the Allison Legacy Cars at the HMS on Lowcountry Concrete Night.

HARDEEVILLE, S.C. (September 21, 2002) - The Allison Legacy Series made their final of three 2002 appearances at the Hardeeville Motor Speedway on Lowcountry Concrete Night with twin 50-lap feature events on Saturday. Chad McCumbee from Supply, NC, picked up both feature events in the Allison Legacy Cars Series.

In local racing action, fourteen-year old Andrew Smith of Pooler, GA bested the field for his Legends Car to pick up the win over Billy Tysinger of Hardeeville, SC and Jonathan Haidon from Hilton Head, SC. The nearly one thousand race fans watching the action knew the Legend Cars would be exciting as even the B-Main proved to have spills that would certainly carry over into the A-Main Feature. Kevin O'Brien from Burton, SC picked up the B-Main victory.

In Mini Stock action, Steven Moore of St. George, SC lapped the entire filed and finished ahead of Bobby Duncan of Ludowici, GA and James Groover of Bluffton, SC. Doug Butler of Hardeevile, SC crossed the finish line in second but was disqualified during post race technical inspections. Tim Dasher of Bluffton, SC beat Don Dean of Sheldon, SC by less than three car lengths to win the Xtreme Stock Car feature with Summerville, SC native David Taschner finishing third. The Coastal Medical Associates Street Stocks were on hand as Hubert Into of Bloomingdale, GA blew by the rest of the field for the win and Glenn Mappus of Ridgeville, SC finished just ahead of Ridgeland, SC native Jim Beckett for second.

The Road Warriors returned with two exciting feature races as first time racer Bryan Roach from Low Country Concrete finished in first ahead of Chelsea Carr of Martinez, GA and Brandon Roach also from Low Country Concrete. In the second Road Warrior feature, Daniel Brown from Low Country Concrete came away victorious with Sport Lewis finishing second and Chelsea Carr claiming third.

Next Saturday night, September 28th, the Hardeeville Motor Speedway will be back in action with its 3rd annual Hargray Fan Appreciation Night featuring the O.C. Welch Ford-Lincoln-Mercury Late Models, Legends Cars, Mini Stocks, Xtreme Stock Cars and Road Warriors.
