Say What!

“I can’t thank my team enough. To have (Crew Chief Kyle) Ripper back has meant the world to me. These guys know Rip. He’s the man for sure. He’s got it figured out. Just so glad to have him back. And to have (crew members) Nickolas (Goodfleisch) and Drew (Brenner). We’re brothers. I’d do anything for them three and I know they’d do the same for me. Just very grateful to be in this NOS Energy Drink car. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for a 27-year-old from Wooster.” Sheldon Haudenschild winning Wayne County Speedway OH WoO

“These (Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing) guys kept digging,We know the road to the top. We know the road to the bottom. These guys just keep working. They’ve tried to get a handle on the horsepower (of the Ford FPS 410 engine). This is a different combination for tonight and obviously everything that’s happen shows it’s going in the right direction. We’re happy about that.” Donny Schatz winning Plymouth IN WoO

“I just gotta thank this entire team. I am confident we had one of the best cars all week,To come out here and set two quick times, one a track record, and get a win says a lot about this team. I’m happy to win tonight rather than last night because tonight pays way more. This field was just as stout as any field we’ve seen all season. All of the best are here. It feels really good to beat the best. Anything that pays over 50 grand is a crown jewel to me.” David Gravel winning the Governors Reign at Eldora Speedway

  • World of Outlaws)Ricky Stenhouse Jr. wanted to see Sheldon Haudenschild and his Stenhouse Jr.-Marshall Racing team finish inside the top-five in points at the end of the season. With nine races remaining on the 2020 World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series tour – starting with the Oct. 2-3 Champion Racing Oil National Open at Williams Grove Speedway – his wish will likely come true. World of Outlaws 9/30

  • NSCHOF)The Speedway Motors/EMi National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum raffle sprint car is making its last Pennsylvania appearance this weekend at the Williams Grove National Open near Mechanicsburg this Friday and Saturday! The World of Outlaws battle the Pennsylvania Posse for a top prize of $75,000. The raffle car will be located in the infield, so make sure to get your tickets before they’re gone! Press Releases9/30

  • Jack Dover)Jack Dover recorded his ninth feature victory of the season last Saturday, giving him at least nine triumphs during 12 of the last 13 years. "My goal has always been 20 wins in a season," he said. "It seems like we have good years. This year we had a chance at winning three more races when dumb luck happened. I think the 20 wins is achievable, but we have to keep the bad luck away. However, nine wins, there's probably thousands of people that would love to have that number so nine wins is a good year. I'd just like to be better." Press Releases9/30

  • Kyle Schuett)Kyle Schuett posted a pair of top-15 finishes, including an eighth-place run, during a weekend doubleheader in Wisconsin with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series. "We had a pretty good weekend," he said. "We're definitely improving." Press Releases9/30

  • Robbie Price)Robbie Price scored an eighth-place result Sunday night during the Fall Nationals at Riverside International Speedway. The top-10 outing was his 10th of the season and served as a confidence booster following a tough previous weekend for the Cobble Hill, B.C., native. Press Releases9/30

  • Trey Starks)Trey Starks hustled to his third podium finish of the season last Saturday during the Fall Haul at 34 Raceway. The Gobrecht Motorsports driver made the most of a last-minute decision to tackle the Sprint Invaders show. Press Releases9/30

  • Garet Williamson)One year ago Garet Williamson was sitting on the sidelines during the prestigious Short Track Nationals. The plan was for Williamson to take on some of the nation's best 360ci sprint car drivers in the event. That changed when the Bryant Paver Motorsports driver hurt an engine the week before and couldn't make the trip. Press Releases9/30

  • USAC)There's no more satisfying moment at the conclusion of a racing season than climbing from the car for the final time to celebrate a championship with your family, your crew and the fans. Akin to a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth, perhaps the only thing finer is climbing from that racecar as both a feature winner and a champion. It's racing's way of allowing one to have their cake and eat it too. USAC 9/30

  • Ian Madsen)Regrouping from a tough trip to Eldora Speedway for the Governors Reign, Ian Madsen and Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports are set to return to action this weekend at Williams Grove Speedway for the coveted National Open. Press Releases9/30

Press Releases9/30

  • PASS)With a national championship on the line, Garrett Bard pulled out all the stops, led all the way in Selinsgrove Speedway’s 20-lapper Saturday night and won both of the PA Sprint Series features on the season’s final points weekend.
