(Jamaica, Virginia) -  After what has been another exciting season of racing for the FASTRAK Racing Series all across the country now the “best of the best” in pro late models with the “Nation’s First and the Most Prestigious Pro Late Model Series in the Country” now converge against their biggest field of the year with “man, machine and muscle” on a crisp September night at the ½ mile Virginia Motor Speedway for the kick-off of the 2015 edition that’s entitled “The World Championship of PRO Late Model Racing” where $5000 to win in the Friday portion of the World Challenge. 
The race featured 42 drivers of the best in the universe of Pro Late Model Racing taking on the ½ mile facility in Virginia that hasn’t won a super late model race in 2015 duration until this weekend. After a sequence of practice and through an entire race format show the fans we’re treated to an awesome spectacle for the $5000 to win World Challenge. #23 Corey Gordon from Charlotte, NC started the evening in disappointment, as a matter of fact he was ready to load up and go home. Gordon would have never imagined he was even going to race after breaking a rear end and then drive shaft in just practice alone. However he never gave up and at night’s end was standing tall in Victory Lane as the winner of the preliminary portion of the 12th Annual World Championship presented by James River Equipment in the World Challenge. 
The race was very eventful and exciting, the race had it all that you would want in a race. The race would kick off with #11 David Smith and #23 Corey Gordon on the front row but at the drop of the green “Flash” would jump out to the front. The yellow would come out twice on Lap 8 when #09 Brad Rigdon would spin in turn four then a multi car incident on the restart which collected #12 Brandon Umberger, #00 Booper Bare and #99 Teddy Tate. On the restart the fans would watch great racing behind Gordon but he was clearly out in front. All the while #8 Ron Parker, #11 Smith and #25 Matt Long we’re all battling amongst themselves but in the process trying to figure out the way to catch Gordon. Problems would come out of nowhere on a lap 10 restart for Ron Parker’s Rocket chassis as he broke a transmission while in 2nd on a restart ending his quest for the $5000 and Globe trophy for the taking.  
There would be more cautions to follow but on every restart Gordon was the top man, he’d carry that momentum after winning the Travelers Rest, SC event and all the woes he sustained earlier in the evening to take his 2nd back to back win on the FASTRAK Racing Series and win the biggest race in his career taking the first ever World Challenge Globe Trophy and a $5000 payday back to the “Queen City”. #11 David Smith and #25 Matt Long had a wild and intense battle for the runner up spot at one point even almost wrecking but would settle for 2nd and 3rd. Also #16 Daniel Baggerly and #42 Cla Knight also had stellar perfomances to round out the top 5. In closing the entire race which was basically the appetizer but in a big way to the $15000 to win World Championship had everything in all you want in a race but in the end #23 Corey “Flash” Gordon rallied back from what was going to look like a horrible Friday into a fantastic celebration being the 2015 World Challenge Champion of the FASTRAK Racing Series.
