1 Kaeden Cornell notched his second victory of the season on Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri.

Cornell wired the field in his Hoover Motorsports No. 50 Cloverleaf Auto Repair/ Choate Farms/ Rocket Chassis/ Hatfield Racing Engine Late Model, leading all 20 laps of the ULMA Late Model feature.

1In Victory Lane, Cornell made a quick point to wish his parents, Aaron and Tracy, a Happy Anniversary. "Without them, I wouldn't be standing here. They mean the world to me," Cornell said. "It got a little dicey there in lapped traffic. I didn't really know where to go because I hadn't run anywhere but the bottom. I can’t thank everyone enough for the support. I’m looking forward to the Show-Me 100 and Diamond Nationals this weekend."

Picking up an 8-lap heat race victory over Dylan Hoover, Cornell locked into the pole position for the 30-lap main event.

Cornell had some early pressure from Johnny Fennewald and Brad Looney before eventually checking out from the field. He opened up a 2.7-second lead by lap 15 and, after dealing with lapped traffic, finished 1.3 seconds ahead of Larry Ferris. Fennewald, Cole Henson, and Todd Shute rounded out the Top-5.

1 Kaeden Cornell returned to the seat of his Hoover Motorsports No. 50 Cloverleaf Auto Repair/ Choate Farms/ Rocket Chassis/ Hatfield Racing Engine Late Model for the first time in over two-months on Saturday.

As drivers ease back into real-world competition amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Cornell made a triumphant return, scoring a flag-to-flag victory in the ULMA Late Model division at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo.

“It’s been a long time coming,” Cornell commented. “As much as I’ve enjoyed iRacing, and I’m thankful for everyone’s hard work to put those events together, I was anxious to get back to the track.”

“I’m sure there were a lot of regulations that had to be approved for this to happen, so I can’t thank everyone enough that made this event possible,” he added. “Thanks to the fans that came out as well, without them we really can’t do this.”

Eighteen ULMA Late Models registered for the Season Opener at the 3/8-mile “Diamond of Dirt Tracks.” Gaining one spot in his heat race, Cornell picked up the eight-lap victory, which positioned him second on the starting grid for the A-Main.

As the race went back green, Cornell led the rest of the way, but it wasn’t easy. Henson managed to pull alongside a couple of times with four laps to go, but Cornell was able to regain command and wound up about three car lengths in front at the finish.

Henson finished second, with Larry Ferris, Shawn Strong, and Aaron Marrant rounding out the Top-5 finishers.

“Our Hoover Motorsports Rocket Chassis powered by a Hatfield Racing Engine was fast all night,” said Cornell. “It feels great to be back at the track and get the win on opening night. I’m looking forward to Legit Speedway Park this weekend!”

May 12, 2020 - Kaeden Cornell Soars to Second World of Outlaws iRacing Victory
1 Kaeden Cornell picked up his second World of Outlaws (WoO) Morton Buildings Late Model Series iRacing victory on Tuesday night.

During the third round in the trilogy of World of Outlaws eDirt Racing Shootout events on CBS Sports Network, Cornell made a thrilling late-race move that landed him in (virtual) Victory Lane at The (virtual) Dirt Track at Charlotte.

Earning the fifth-starting position for the A-Main via preliminary events, Cornell stayed up front the entire race. He would swipe the lead away from Trent Ivey on a big slide job he threw in Turn 3 with just seven circuits remaining just as the caution waved.

As the field stepped on the throttle in Turn 4 for the restart, Cornell got the best jump of anybody, rocketing down the front stretch and into Turn 1 with a massive advantage over Nick Stroupe and Mike McKinney.

As the field went into a frenzy behind him, Cornell was smooth sailing out front in his Hoover Motorsports No. 50 Dirt Draft/ Lucas Oil/ P&W Sales/ Etchberger Transportation/ Black Diamond Chassis (virtual) Super Late Model. Untouched, he led the field back to the checkered flag for the win.

“Whenever that dang caution came out there, I was throwing stuff in here, man I was ticked,” Cornell responded. “That start, it was like I had some kind of nitrous button or something. I couldn’t ever do that again if I tried!”

Cornell crossed the finish line ahead of McKinney, Ivey, Matty Watkins, and Logan Seavey.

Above all, Cornell was thankful for his supportive sponsors and the opportunity to race on national television. “I can’t thank everybody enough that helps me with this deal. You guys for putting this on for us while this whole virus deal is going on is just super awesome. CBS, the World of Outlaws and everybody with them, I just can’t thank them enough,” Cornell said.

This Saturday, May 16, Kaeden Cornell is planning his return to real-world competition with the 2020 Season Opener at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. The following weekend – May 22-23 – Cornell has his sights set on a doubleheader with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil at Legit Speedway Park in West Plains, Mo.

May 4, 2020 - iRacing Success Vaults Cornell into National Dirt Late Model Picture
1 A big iRacing win on national television, a shiny new sponsor on the side of his virtual ride, and a return to the real track for a little testing session this past weekend has Super Late Model young gun Kaeden Cornell in high spirits (as usual) this week. (Chris Owens photo)

Cornell, of Willard, MO, has been among the top-rated iRacers competing with the World of Outlaws over the past few weeks. His first four finishes were on the podium, as are his previous two. Last Tuesday, he finally cashed in for that elusive first win at virtual Eldora Speedway, broadcasted live on CBS Sports Network. <<MORE>>

April 28, 2020 - Kaeden Cornell Scores First World of Outlaws iRacing Victory at Eldora Speedway
1 On Tuesday, one night after coming so close in an iRacing Invitational race, Kaeden Cornell took advantage of a mistake by the late-race leaders to score his first World of Outlaws (WoO) Morton Buildings Late Model Series iRacing victory.

Piloting his (virtual) Hoover Motorsports No. 50 Dirt Draft/ Lucas Oil/ P&W Sales/ Etchberger Transportation/ Black Diamond Chassis Super Late Model, Cornell swiped the top spot away with just a pair of laps remaining for the win at (virtual) Eldora Speedway.

When asked about the winning move by CBS Sports host Dave Rieff in the post-race interview, Cornell excitedly replied, “I have no clue! I don’t know what it looked like, but it was chaos from my screen.”

1Cornell was locked into the sixth-starting position for the 35-lap feature event. After a pair of wrecks in the opening 10 laps, Kaeden made a charge for the top spot following a lap 10 restart but nearly got turned around, dropping him outside the Top-10. (Chris Owens photo)

Slowly regaining his momentum and working his way into contention, Cornell took advantage of a late-race restart with three laps to go, sliding ahead of Mike McKinney for third on the high side. One lap late, Cornell took advantage of wrecking leaders Ashton Winger and Nick Stroupe to take the lead, and the eventual win.

With the epic comeback complete, Cornell was only beginning to soak-in what had happened on-track as he explained to Rieff and fellow announcers Kenny Wallace and Johnny Gibson in the post-race interview what was actually happening outside his house.

“I’m in Willard, Missouri, and we just went through a tornado warning! I was just praying the lights didn’t come off my dang house,” Cornell again said with excitement. “This is awesome! What a deal! I’m pumped!”

Thankful the strong storm didn’t damage his house, Cornell had only a brief, yet energetic explanation to Gibson of what was going through his mind on the final restart.

“Just full send, just gotta go,” he said. “I got wrecked earlier but I think it was just a racing deal, no one’s fault, really. But you just gotta get after it here, I love it. Up on the wheel, it was awesome!”

Next Tuesday, the World of Outlaws: eDirt Racing Shootout returns to CBS Sports Network from (virtual) Volusia Speedway Park in Florida. Additional information on these events can be found at www.WorldOfOutlaws.com.

March 5, 2020 - Kaeden Cornell Opens 2020 Season This Weekend
1 Kaeden Cornell is set to kick off his most ambitious season to date this weekend in his Hoover Motorsports No. 50 Cloverleaf Auto Repair/ Choate Farms/ Rocket Chassis/ Hatfield Racing Engine Super Late Model.

Although Kaeden will enter a handful of ULMA Late Model events in 2020, the team plans to shift their focus primarily to Super Late Model competition this season. The up-and-coming racer plans to compete primarily with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) and Lucas Oil Midwest Latemodel Racing Association (MLRA). Cornell is also planning select events with the UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals and the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS).

“I can’t thank Rick [Hoover] enough for choosing me to be his driver,” said Cornell. “I can’t wait to see what this season has in store for our team. We just want to learn as much as possible. If we can add a few Top-10’s and Top-5’s to the resume along the way, that’ll be a great bonus.” 

In 2019 Kaeden finished third in the final ULMA Late Model standings at Missouri's Lucas Oil Speedway, while also entering a handful of Super Late Model events. Additionally, he received the Most Popular Driver Award for the 2019 season at Lucas Oil Speedway. 

Cornell acknowledges that transitioning from the Limited Late Model to a Super Late Model will have his challenges. He knows that a tall order awaits him, competing against some of the toughest drivers in the Midwest, but he’s excited for the opportunity to learn from his fellow competitors.

“To be the best, you have to race with the best,” Cornell added. “I made my first Diamond Nationals in 2019 and was privileged to race alongside drivers like Mike Marlar and Billy Moyer. I learned more that night than I have my whole career thus far. I’m looking forward to building on that knowledge this season.”  

Kaeden will kick off the CCSDS season this weekend with a double header at Boothill Speedway in Greenwood, La. The inaugural Ronny Adams Memorial boast a $3,000 top prize on Friday followed by a $7,000-to-win program on Saturday.
