A special message from series director Larry Walls:

I have been told that I alone have destroyed UCAR racing.When you look at the total picture I am the only one that has keep our cars stock as they can be. As with everything else in motor sports the drivers and team owners have pushed the tracks as well as the UCAR Clash to allow them to cut springs add after market wheels and work done to motors to make them faster.

When I started the UCAR Clash I did so to keep the cost down to my racers and to help bring new drivers into the sport. That is all out the window now when we started four years ago the average car cost was $600-$1200 now I have some cars that cost right at $5000 to build.

I know that I have made mistakes in running the UCAR Clash I am not perfect at all. I have invested 4 years of my life and my own money into giving you guys a place to race 10-12 times a year.

Now the bottom line for me is ether to stop the loss of money or try to stay afloat and finish the last 3 races of the 2011 season. I can't do this without you the drivers and team owners. My staff and I are looking at opening up our rules to allow more cars to race with us. I now need feed back from all UCAR drivers to help bring the UCAR Clash back. I know with the economy in such a down turn and car and fan counts down everywhere it will be hard for you to travel but again I need your help not your bashing. Bashing is killing our home tracks and the UCAR Clash everyday now.

For Hickory I am opening a pre-registration form on the Walls Roofing UCAR Clash web site I need all drivers that are going to race at Hickory to register for this great race. At this point and time we are going to open up the spring rule to cut springs and lowering the ride height down as well.

I would like to thank all of the past, currant teams and sponsors for all of your support without you I could not have made it this far.

Thanks for your time

Larry P. Walls

Duane Walker wins first Clash race

Duane Walker has ran great all season. He'd claimed a regular weekly racing victory at Dillon Motor Speedway earlier this year, but had yet to win a Walls' Roofing UCAR Clash points race. All that changed Saturday Night at Dillon.

Walker led all 20 laps in the feature in route to his first career touring series win. Walker held off a hard charging Bill Pearce, who won the night's earlier heat race, to win the $300 check at the end of the night.

Jason Beck finished 3rd and Jessie Hatcher finished fourth.

Stay tuned for more news from the UCAR Clash for Cash series!

"Wild Bill" Pearce wins with last lap pass

Matt Grimes dominated the race, but Bill Pearce took home the hardware. That was the story during the Walls' Roofing UCAR Clash's fist trip to Wake County Speedway this year.

Grimes' Piping Performance Nissan 200 SX led 49 laps of the 50 lap feature, steadily pacing the field for the entire event. However, former super late model driver Pearce made a daring last lap pass to take the lead and a $500 first prize courtesy of Dunn Benson Ford.

For Pearce, it was his second straight win on the Clash Series. His Honda Prelude came all the way from the rear in the most recent race, proving its muscle.

Eric Winslow, who won the inaugural UCAR Clash race at Wake County Speedway in 2007, placed 3rd in his Honda Prelude. Duane Walker and Chris Gault rounded out the top five.

Full results and race rundown will be posted soon.

From Walls Roofing UCAR Clash

North Wilkesboro (N.C.) Speedway has announced that a “business restructure” is underway at the 5/8-mile paved oval, placing all 2011 scheduled events in a “tentative” position. The June 18th and OCT 29th Walls Roofing UCAR Clash races at North Wilkesboro will be listed as “tentative” until this process has been completed. Track principals have indicated that final decisions regarding future potential re-opening of the facility should be made by June 15, at which time the Walls Roofing UCAR Clash will reflect the situation regarding the June 18th events. In the interim, all questions regarding the future of North Wilkesboro Speedway may be directed to the Speedway offices at (336) 651-0018.

"Wild Bill" Pearce wins at Dillon

"Wild Bill" Pearce won his first ever UCAR Clash feature at Dillon Motor Speedway, holding off Duane Walker and Min Stock specialist Chad Wall in a caution free race that had been shortened to 25 laps.

Peirce piloted his #51 Honda Prelude to an earlier heat race win, making him undefeated on the night. Walker put up a charge, but had to settle for second after his car developed a miss that couldn't be remedied at the race track.

Wall was piloting the car that Chris Lowell won the previous UCAR Clash race at VIR, but the car didn't seem to have the handle at the tricky 4/10 mile Dillon.

Check back soon for a full rundown. >

Smith, Lowell win at VIR

The #23 Acura Integra, owned by Wil Smith, won both the Walls' Roofing UCAR Clash and the UCAR Clash Open race at Virginia International Raceway Saturday. Chris Lowell, making his first UCAR Clash start, won both his heat race and feature event. Smith, driving the same car, won the open modified race.

In the UCAR Clash feature, Aaron Miller crossed the finish line first, but was disqualified after refusing the second place driver's claim. The UCAR Clash has a claim and exchange rule allowing a driver to claim the car that finishes directly in front of them for $1,500. Anyone refusing the claim will be disqualified. The rule is designed to keep the cost of racing at a manageable level.

In the UCAR Clash feature, Michael Neal finished second, Rick Watson third, Eric Winslow fourth and Todd Langdon in fifth.

Even with gas prices approaching $4 a gallon, 16 cars showed up for the third running of the Clash at VIR. Though the turnout was lower than previous years, series director Larry Walls thanked the drivers who came from more than three states to run the race.

"This is a good turnout," Walls said during the drivers' meeting. "We will be back next year."

The race was surprisingly clean, with few incidents other than some minor excursions through the grass and a couple of single-car spins on the winding road course.

The final finishing order was:

Chris Lowell

Michael Neal

Rick Watson

Eric Winslow

Todd Langdon

Duane Walker
