Last to First for Mason, Points Lead Increases

After having an altercation with a car in the heat race, Mason was unable to finish and therefore had to start the Young Lions feature in the rear for Week 5 of Thursday Thunder at Atlanta Motor Speedway. After having his car repaired by Doug Stevens of Advanced Technology Motorsports, Mason started last in the 14 car field, and at the drop of the green flag and began working his way to the front. By lap 11, he had moved into 2nd place and had his sights set on the lead. On lap 14, Mason made the pass for the lead and led the remaining 6 laps to take his 12th career Thursday Thunder win and his 3rd in the last 4 weeks. As always, Mason would like to thank Doug Stevens and ATM for giving him a great racecar and repairing the car after the heat race incident. Also, thanks to all of Mason's sponsors for making this all possible.

Mason Has Strong Week at Charlotte and Atlanta

Mason continued his hot streak with two strong runs last week at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Atlanta Motor Speedway during the always competitive Summer Shootout and Thursday Thunder Series. Tuesday in Charlotte, Mason qualified 4th out of the 36 entries, after the inversion he started the feature in the 2nd spot. After leading the first 8 laps, Mason was passed for the lead and finished a strong 2nd after a very intense race. In Atlanta on Thursday, Mason started 5th in his heat race and finished 2nd in the race that was shortened to 5 laps. Since Mason was the feature winner last week, he was required to start the feature from the 7th position. He raced to the front and took the lead on lap 9 with a very strong race car. On lap 15, Mason was hammered from the rear and lost 2 positions to fall to 3rd place. Mason raced back to the lead on lap 19 only to be slammed again from the rear, by the same driver, coming to the checkered flag and crossed the finish line in 3rd position. Due to the rough driving charge against the other driver, he was penalized and Mason was awarded the 2nd spot. Mason should have had the win, but sometimes it just don't work out.

Mason Ends Busy Week With Victory

After traveling over 2,000 miles in the last ten days racing, Mason won his 2nd Thursday Thunder feature in a row at Atlanta Motor Speedway Thursday night to cap off a successful stretch in his Summer racing schedule. After winning at Atlanta Motor Speedway last Thursday, Mason traveled to South Alabama Speedway in Opp, Alabama to run his second race in the Gresham Motorsports/Summit Tires Late Model on Saturday. He started 10th in the feature, and worked his way up to 4th with 20 laps to go in the 100 lap feature. Unfortunately, with 3 laps to go Mason was crashed from behind and was unable to finish the race due to damage to the car. On Monday, Mason unloaded at Charlotte Motor Speedway ready to race his legend car. He qualified 2nd out of the 38 cars in his division. After a rough, crazy race he was able to bring it home in 2nd place for a great finish in the opening night of the 2011 Summer Shootout. On Tuesday, at Charlotte Motor Speedway again, Mason timed in 5th fastest and was able to salvage a 3rd place finish with an ill handling car. Two great finishes with a lot of competition. Finally, at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Thursday, Mason won his heat race and had to start the feature in 7th, because he won last week. He worked to the lead on lap 5, and run a strong race to win his 11th career Thursday Thunder race.
