Cole Timm makes it Four Different Winners in the first Four CCS Super Limited Series Winning at Ace
Graham, NC 4/30/12- One couldn’t ask for more parity than drivers and fans alike are getting in the all new CCS Super Limited late model division. Friday night at the Ace Speedway in Altamahaw , North Carolina , in the series first stand alone event away from the PASS South super late models, young gun Cole Timm captured the win making it four different race winners in the series first four races of 2012. Kyle Beattie who has been fast at every race this season but has yet to grab a win finished second followed by Tate Fogleman in third.
Timm became a bit of a surprising winner after posting just the fourth fastest time in series qualifying that saw Hickory Motor Speedway race winner Austin Leitner set fast time earlier in the day. After the series redraw of the top five qualifiers Jody Measemer grabbed the pole position with eventual winner Timm taking a backseat to the fifth starting position at the drop of the green.
It took two complete restarts to get the first lap in as newcomer Tyler Dayton went for a spin entering turn one. Once the field finally took the green Jody Measemer put his #98 Bull City Racecars machine out front before a lap three caution would slow the field once again. Measemer once again would take command of the field while others behind him scrambled for positions. Tyler Dayton’s night would go from bad to worse as motor issues sent him behind the wall after stalling on the track off of turn four bringing out the yellow flag on lap nineteen.
Measemer continued to hold his ground at the helm of the field over the event’s midway point all the while Timm had made his way to second passing fellow competitors Beattie and Fogleman along the way. With just eight laps remaining a shot by Timm’s #57 Triad Racing Technology Toyota Camry to the rear bumper of Measemer’s machine sent Measemer in spin cycle ending his reign at the lead and bringing out the yellow for the final time of the night. Thirteen year old Timm then sailed to the victory scoring his first series win, but before he could celebrate an irritated Measemer awaited him to discuss things in victory lane.
“There was no intentional contact there whatsoever,” Timm explained to the crowd in victory lane after a heated discussion with Measemer. “I love racing clean. I would never turn anybody intentionally. I was just doing all I could to get this win tonight and I overdrove it getting into the corner and got into him. I understand he’s mad after leading every lap and not getting the win but like I told him it was a racing deal and it wasn’t on purpose.”
While that may have been Timm’s perspecitive who was able to claim the win and write his chapter in the history books at a CCS Super Limited late model winner, Jody Measemer had totally different thoughts.
“We had a great car and lead the first forty-two laps and then after that last restart Timm overdrove it going into turn one and basically dumped me,” explained Measemer. “I don’t know if he felt that was his only shot or what? I am sure at that age that he’s learning to work on car control every week, but sometimes what’s happening on the track is a little over his head. It’s just ashamed to lead all those laps and have the best car and get taken out like that.”
The next race for the CCS Super Limited late models is back in conjunction with the PASS South Series super late models as the tour rolls into the Wake County Speedway in Raleigh , North Carolina on Friday night May 11th for the Capital City Clash 50.
