Say What!

"I can't remember when the last time I won at Fremont. We won an All Star show this year and now this and it helps a ton. I saw the 49 started about last and was second so I knew he was on it. When things are working good like this it's still fun. I have to thank all my sponsors; if it wasn't for them we couldn't do this deal," Jac Haudenschild winning Fremont Speedway FAST

“We are starting to like these small, slick race tracks, I just can’t thank my team and all of my supporters enough for their hard work this year. Joe Gaerte, Tim and Cindy Norman; they do a great job with this race car. They make my job easy.” Carson Macedo winning Dundee NY All Stars

"They say when it rains, it pours, and we needed some rain on our crops at home,This has been a good little stretch. For some reason, new kids bring a lot of wins it seems like. We've won two championships the year the last two kids were born and now we got this one. We can win a lot of money from here to the end of the year with a lot of big paying races, so this is a good time to get momentum." Brady Bacon winning Terre Haute IN USAC Sprints

RESULTS.... 

  • Midwest Thunder Sprints presented by www.OpenWheel101.com)A weekend that saw four different races with the Midwest Thunder Sprints presented by www.OpenWheel101.com saw three different winners. On Friday and Saturday, Kerry Madsen swept IRA action at both the Clay County Fair Speedway in Spencer, Iowa and the Deer Creek Speedway near Spring Valley, Minnesota. That gave Kerry seven wins in Midwest Thunder Sprints action this year, and kept him in the points lead. In Illinois, Joe B. Miller registered his first win in series action Friday at Jacksonville Speedway’s MOWA “Herb Barlow Memorial.” Paul Nienhiser clinched his fifth win in the series with his triumph Saturday on the Spoon River Speedway high banks near Canton during the “Tom Knowles Memorial”. BillW's Knoxville News 9/18

  • Greg Wilson)Greg Wilson capped the final West Coast Swing of the season by earning the Hard Charger Award last Saturday at Calistoga Speedway. Wilson and his Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Alloy Wheels sponsored team gained a handful of positions on the half-mile oval to finish 18th, which wasn't the result he hoped for but was an improvement on the previous night during the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series doubleheader. Press Releases9/18

  • Robert Ballou)A strong weekend for Robert Ballou saw him run a close second to Brady Bacon on Friday night at Terre Haute Action Track before finishing seventh on Saturday night at Tri State Speedway in Haubstadt, IN. “We tried a new car on Friday night, and it went okay we ran a close second to Brady Bacon, and on Saturday night we went back to our old reliable car and had some good speed but didn’t make the redraw feature and it was pretty narrow and we ended up seventh,” Robert Ballou said. Press Releases9/18

  • Kraig Kinser)It's been a long journey home for Kraig Kinser, who left California following last Saturday's Wine Country Outlaw Showdown finale. It took approximately 35 hours to drive from the West Coast to Indiana, where Kinser will spend a couple of days before returning to World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series action this Friday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the BeFour the Crowns Showdown and Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., during the Commonwealth Clash.Press Releases9/18

  • Derek Hager)Derek Hagar earned his sixth triumph of the season last Saturday at I-30 Speedway, where he captured the Ralph Henson Memorial for the second time in his career. Hagar kicked off the ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Red River Region event by maneuvering from seventh to third place during a heat race, which ranked him fourth in overall points out of nearly 40 competitors. Press Releases9/18

  • Jack Dover)Jack Dover will join forces with Chris Bowers to tackle the 8th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway. Dover has earned at least one top 10 each year he's competed in the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by SawBlade.com event - he didn't race it in 2013 and 2015 - with a handful of fourth-place finishes marking his best result at the oval in Wheatland, Mo. Press Releases9/18

  • Robbie Price)Robbie Price returned to action at Skagit Speedway last Saturday when the track contested Championship Night. The defending track champion finished third to earn his second podium finish of the season at the 3/10-mile bullring in a limited number of starts. Press Releases9/18

  • Alex Hill)Alex Hill enjoyed her best racing weekend of the year last Friday and Saturday at Ohsweken Speedway, which hosted the 14th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals presented by Arrow Express. The 18-year-old finished second in a make-up feature from July 20 and she garnered a top 10 during the opening round of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals on Friday night. She followed that up the next night by qualifying for her first Canadian Sprint Car Nationals A Main. Press Releases9/18

  • Paul Nienhiser)A busy weekend for Paul Nienhiser saw the Chapin, IL driver make a late race move at Spoon River Speedway to score the Tom Knowles Memorial for the second time in his career to up his win total to eighth in 2018. “We had a really good weekend with a ton of car speed,” Nienhiser said. “If it wasn’t for a bit of a mistake on the last lap on Friday night, we would have surely had a trio of podiums.” Press Releases9/18

  • Terry McCarl)While “Tuesdays with TMAC” has been on a brief hiatus, Terry McCarl has not! The veteran driver from Altoona, Iowa is coming off a streak that saw him score five podiums and two 4th-place finishes in his last seven races, including a 3rd and 2nd last weekend with the IRA Sprints. Next on the schedule is the $6,000 to win “Bill Waite Jr. Memorial” at LaSalle Speedway this Sunday night! Press Releases9/18

  • Shane Hopkins)Making a handful of starts at the conclusion of the 2017 season, Shane Hopkins and Moxie Motorsports set out to earn Rookie of the Year Honors and finish Top-Five in the points at Placerville Speedway in 2018. With the point season now over, Hopkins can check off both those goals as his body of work earned him both the 2018 Placerville Speedway Rookie of the Year and he finished third in the final standings. Press Releases9/18

  • Andy Forsberg)Though a formality, when Andy Forsberg and his F&F Racing signed into Placerville Speedway on Saturday night they officially became the 2018 Track Champions at Placerville Speedway. Despite having the title locked up, Forsberg and crew were hungry for their eighth win of the season but a part failure late in the race would spoil the party for the team. Press Releases9/18

  • Tony Gualda)Tuning up for this weekend’s Nor-Cal Posse Shootout, Tony Gualda and C&M Motorsports checked in at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night for the regular season finale and came home with a fourth place finish. “We had a really fast car and I felt like we got stronger as the race went on,” Tony Gualda said. “I thought we had a shot at a podium, but we ran out of time.

  • Willie Croft)Another busy week of racing action for Willie Croft and the Willie Croft Racing team was highlighted by a dominant win on Saturday night at Calistoga Speedway with the Civil War Series. “It’s been an extremely busy month of September for us so far and to get another win is great,” Willie Croft said. “My guys have stood behind me and we will keep going and look for another good weekend.” Press Releases9/18

  • Justyn Cox)Justyn Cox climbed back aboard the Harley Van Dyke owned No. 5H on Saturday night in Placerville, CA and put together a nice run that saw him net a second place finish. “I want to thank Harley Van Dyke for the opportunity to driver for him again,” Justyn Cox said. “Harley was such a huge part of me getting started in this sports, I really enjoy running for him again when it works out and his car was really good Saturday night.” Press Releases9/18

  • Ian Madsen)Closing out the late Summer/early Fall West Coast swing, Ian Madsen and KCP Racing would tally a trio of 11th place finishes including one run from the 21st starting position. “Wednesday night at Placerville we kind of got off to a slow start but we got going pretty good in the feature event and ran it up to 11th,” Ian Madsen said. “Calistoga was tricky to gain ground both nights so we will take those tow 11th place finishes and get ready to return to the Midwest.” Press Releases9/18

  • Justin Sanders)Justin Sanders and Dale Miller Motorsports have been tough to beat on any given night the duo shows up to race together. Saturday night during the final points race at Placerville Speedway, Sanders picked up his 14th win of the 2018 season and fourth aboard the No. 4SA entry as he led from wire to wire. Press Releases9/18

  • Cory Eliason)After spending much of the season on the road with Roth Motorsports, Cory Eliason has defended his home turf well with the ‘Greatest Show on Dirt’ in the Golden State. During the final night of action in California, Cory Eliason and Roth Motorsports sent the series on their way by claiming the win and giving the team their second World of Outlaws win of the season.

  • Joe Trenca)Joe Trenca posted his eighth top-10 result of the season last Friday during the opening round of the 14th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals presented by Arrow Express at Ohsweken Speedway. The Mucci Motorsports driver kicked off the action by maneuvering from seventh to fourth place in a heat race, which locked him into the ninth starting position for one of the twin A Mains. Press Releases9/18

  • Channin Tankersley)Channin Tankersley has an opportunity to accomplish a new feat in the near future as he's on the cusp of his third career ASCS Gulf South Region championship. Tankersley, who won regional titles in 2014 and 2016, owns a 129-point lead in the championship standings entering the season finale this Saturday at Battleground Speedway. Press Releases9/18

  • USAC)The big cars of the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series are known for endurance races. One-hundred miles, tire and fuel conservation and being in position at the end usually dictate how the race will unfold. This Saturday's 37th running of the "4-Crown Nationals" presented by NKT.TV at Eldora Speedway is about as close to a sprint race as you can get. It's 50 laps around a half-mile, all out, for the finale of the series' 48th season. USAC9/18

  • USAC)C.J. Leary seems more than poised for a breakout performance this Saturday in the 37th running of the "4-Crown Nationals" presented by NKT.TV at Eldora Speedway. He's led in four of the past six races for a total of 69 laps, 38 more than any other driver during that span. The results have been there: a 2nd, 6th, 6th, 4th and 2nd. Yet, none of those include a 1st, a cage stand, a check or one of the other many spoils of victory. USAC9/18

  • USAC)Midgets on the high banks of Eldora Speedway are breathtakingly spectacular and that's what this Saturday's 37thrunning of the "4-Crown Nationals" will surely provide when the USAC P1 Insurance National Midgets make their lone annual trip to the legendary half-mile. Series point leader Logan Seavey may technically be a Rookie as he eyes his first career midget start at Eldora. But the 21-year-old Sutter, Calif. native appears as that in name only as he carries a 98-point lead into the race on the strength of consistency with a pair of wins in Du Quoin, Ill. and Sweet Springs, Mo. In July, Seavey made his initial expedition of Eldora a memorable one, leading 53 laps on his way to an eighth-place finish in his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut. USAC9/18
