Carroll claims Late Models feature at Ace Speedway

ALTAMAHAW — Justin Carroll’s victory in the Late Models race in the fifth annual Rodney Cook Classic at Ace Speedway was significant to him on several levels.
The Concord driver shared an emotional embrace with his father and was even more demonstrative when dedicating the victory to his grandfather. “This is awesome,” he said. “I want to dedicate this to my grandpa.” His grandfather Tom Carroll is in intensive care with heart problems in an Albemarle hospital. “To win the Rodney Cook Classic here at Ace Speedway is truly awesome,” Carroll said. “I never personally raced against Rodney, but I know of what he accomplished. It’s just awesome to win this event.”

Carroll took on all comers and dispatched each with his rocket ship of a car, especially at the end, when he easily pulled away to claim the $10,000 first-place prize. Justin Hicks claimed second place, seemingly coming out of nowhere, and Trevor Ward was third. Carroll and Ward played cat-and-mouse for most of the race, but Ward could never overtake Carroll. “I just couldn’t pull away from him,” Carroll said. “I was the happiest when he wasn’t behind me.”

“Toast” Keeps His Streak Alive

North Carolina’s Justin Carroll is certainly a competitive race car driver, but when more than 70 cars come out to race at Martinsville, including the likes of Lee Pulliam, Peyton Sellers, Bobby McCarty, Tommy Lemons Jr., and others, Carroll is still one of the underdogs (or underbirds, as those in the Kulwicki Driver Development Program might prefer he be called). Carroll kept his top-10 streak alive at Martinsville on Saturday. That’s part of what makes his top-10 streak so impressive. Martinsville is known for mayhem and calamity with the best of the best often finding trouble.Trouble still found Carroll on Saturday, too. Carroll had a rough showing in qualifying, placing 40th overall. He then failed to transfer out of his heat race, so he was forced to race his way in through the Last Chance Race. Carroll ended up eventually winning the Last Chance Race and secured a spot in the feature event. After starting in the 33rd position, Carroll eventually made his way to the top 10, finishing in sixth. Carroll now has finishes of eighth, sixth and sixth in the last three years at Martinsville.
