1October 12th, 2013 - After a past month that can only be described as incredibly frustrating Chandler Petty Racing finally got back to good again over the weekend as the team claimed the $2,000 win in the Crate Late Model portion of the Cotton Boll Cup at Poplar Bluff Speedway (Poplar Bluff, Missouri).

In heat race action on Friday night at the recently reopened facility Chandler started 3rd in his heat race before registering a 2nd place finish, which locked him into the 5th starting spot for Saturday night's finale.

Early in the finale Petty raced his way into the 2nd spot as he began pressuring the leader, Troy English. Chandler passed the leader twice only to have the caution negate the passes. The race took a bizarre turn with five laps remaining as a heavy fog forced the event to be red flagged. After a lengthy delay the race resumed, and with three laps remaining Petty was finally able to overtake the leader. Once out front Petty motored away from the competition to register his 4th win of the season.

1October 5th, 2013 - Chandler Petty entered the 7th Annual Gumbo Nationals over the weekend, which posted a $5,000 winner's check for the NeSmith Late Model Series sanctioned event at Greenville Speedway (Greenville, Mississippi).

With 34 entries in action his luck would quickly turn sour in preliminary action on Friday night. Struggles in qualifying left him starting deep in the heat race grid, and to make matters worse he was collected in an accident that resulted in heavy damage to his entry as he scratched from the remainder of the weekend's festivities.
