Lonnie Adamson Wins “Little Trees” 25-mile SRL Supermodified Race 

As usual, Troy Regier started the annual SRL Supermodified slugfest from the pole and appeared to be headed for the win. But Lonnie Adamson from Salt Lake City, Utah was the man in the Victory Lane when the checkered flag finally fell.

“I’d like to thank the whole team and Davey Hamilton for letting me have this opportunity,” said Adamson after accepting his first Copper World trophy. “I could tell Troy was tight coming out of the turn and so I took advantage of that. It was tough to pass because of the wind. The wind was really messing up the cars.”

(On getting around Regier) “I just got in there pretty hard, and I let the wind calm me, and the back end just started coming around. It happened earlier in practice, the right rear just started going away toward the end of the race, but it loosened up. This was probably the biggest win of my career.”

“The track felt better. It felt like the first practice session yesterday, when we were the fastest. The winds were kind of making it difficult when you were around other cars. You get an aero push behind other cars. It would just make the car go up the track and it’s hard to pass that way. Troy was pretty tight, that’s how I got passed him.”

Troy Regier was naturally disappointed on being unable to win this third Copper World race. “I couldn’t keep the car down,” he said. “It was real tight today. We did the best we could. Lonnie did a great job. He was one of the best drivers out here, congratulations to Lonnie. We were just too tight today. Coming out of the corners I had to get out of the throttle a little bit to keep from hitting the wall and he made a run on me. I was in trouble on the restarts from lap five on.”

“I guess I wasn’t going fast enough for the wind to bother me. Either that or I was plowing some dirt.”

Third place finisher Ken Hamilton drove his son Davey’s car to a strong third place finish, almost catching Regier for second near the end. “Troy started picking up a push midway through the race,” said Hamilton. “I did too, but his was a little worse. I was able to catch him, but he had a little more horsepower on me. I thought maybe another lap or two I could’ve gotten him, but it was strictly because he started pushing and I was pushing less.”

“The track was really good, the wind was a little bit of a factor out there,” added Hamilton. “But I saw Troy started getting a little push, Lonnie had a little horsepower on him, I was hoping Troy’s push would get worse and it did, but then I picked up one and I was just glad to finish third behind him.”

“This was really exciting for me driving my son’s car and Lonnie in one my son’s cars, and the team really did a very good job in putting these cars together,” said Hamilton. “They finished them up on Monday night about 11:30 or midnight, and we came out here not really knowing what we had, and we ended up having two very, very good cars. Lonnie ended up with a brand new motor with a little more horsepower, as I can see now, but I’m just really happy for Davey. I wish he could have been out here with us, but we want to thank the team, our sponsors, for helping us put on the show that we did.”
