Motivated Intentions: Corey Hutchings Rolls To Street Stock Victory At Speedbowl

WATERFORD – Corey Hutchings wasn’t thrilled with a fourth place finish in the Street Stock feature on Aug. 24 at the Waterford Speedbowl.

But the Salem driver turned to his competition this week to get some added motivation to return to victory lane at the track.

Hutchings said it was accusatory words of fellow Street Stock competitor Chris Meyer that helped fuel his return to the track this week, a return that ended with Hutchings in victory lane following the 25-lap Street Stock feature Saturday at Waterford.

Ryan Waterman of Danielson was second and Phil Evans of Uncasville third.

After his Street Stock victory on Aug. 24 Chris Meyer was quoted in an article in the Norwich Bulletin insinuating that most of his competition in the division was cheating.

“I was straight up told by the tech inspector that if [he disqualified] all the illegal cars, I would have no one to race against,” Meyer told the Bulletin.

“I read the article in [Norwich Bulletin] and I was like ‘Really?’” Hutchings said. “Not that it burned my butt, but it motivated me a little bit. To kind of say that we’re cheating, come on? Pull the car apart, check anything you want, we’re not cheating.”

Hutchings said after he and his crew members saw the comments from Meyer they “fired up.”

“I said, I’m going to work my butt off this week and come back and win,” Hutchings said. “We pulled the whole front end apart this week just to make sure we weren’t missing anything and we found a couple small things that I think made a really big difference tonight. The car was really really good.”

Hutchings went by Ryan Waterman for the lead off of turn two with nine laps remaining and never trailed again.
