Say What!

“I was running pretty hard when I was out by myself, That’s what kind of got me in trouble. I almost flipped the thing, bouncing around, jumping up and down.I knew he (Shane Stewart) was going to have the same issues, he’s going to want to get out front and stand on it,You can count on probably some more yellows, because we were having one right after the other.” Logan Schuchart winning Stockton CA World of Outlaws

“I’ve raced here so much and just know the characteristics of it, It’s not a big part of winning these races, but it gives you that edge. It’s a home track for me.” Carson Macedo winning Silver Dollar Speedway CA World of Outlaws

Press Releases 3/19

  • Perris Auto Speedway CA)The more things change, the more they stay the same. The first part of that saying can be proved very true when it comes to short track auto racing in the Southwest. Over the last quarter of a century, many tracks have closed and others have seen a revolving door of promoters. One thing that has remained a constant since 1996 is that Perris Auto Speedway has been run under the banner of Oval Entertainment and the Kazarian family since day one.

Although the nearby-Gettysburg native started from the pole position, it was not an easy victory, as the former Lincoln Speedway track champion lost command to Anthony Macri during the early stages of the main event. Although Macri was seemingly in control, Dietrich tracked him down in a hurry, actually battling back within a car length with just three laps remaining. Press Releases 3/18

  • Brock Zearfoss)Despite a few hiccups including a water line issue at Williams Grove Speedway, the ‘Jonestown Jet’ Brock Zearfoss displayed speed and consistency during the recent weekend, ending his Central Pennsylvania double with a pair of top-ten performances, all of which highlighted with an eighth place finish at the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, March 16. The full-time All Star, who will enter select Central Pennsylvania programs until his All Star schedule resumes on April 11, was battling as high as sixth during feature competition at Lincoln before eventually fading to eighth. Unfortunately, a few bold moves with the intent to gain a few extra spots ended up causing more harm than good. Press Releases 3/18

  • OCRS)After a successful season opener at Red Dirt Raceway last Saturday, the Ameri-Flex / OCRS Sprint Car Series travels to Creek County Speedway on Saturday for race number two on the 2019 season schedule. It has been 11 years since the OCRS has raced at the Emmett Hahn owned quarter-mile oval located on old route 66 near the town of Kellyville. For many, it has been a long time coming. OCRS 3/18

  • Jason Sides/Tim Kaeding)Sides Motorsports registered its second podium finish of the season on Saturday during the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown at Stockton Dirt Track. Tim Kaeding qualified 17th quickest before he gained a spot to finish fourth in a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series heat race.

  • Mason Daniel)Time behind the wheel is the biggest focus for every young driver and Mason Daniel is certainly learning lap by lap.

Press Releases 3/18

Unfortunately, Mother Nature had a different idea and forced the track to cancel the event. Press Releases 3/18

  • USAC)Austin Nemire's initial foray into the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series was about getting accustomed to the car and the new tracks he had yet to turn a wheel on at the time. Going into last year's opener, Nemire and the team felt confident in taking the next step to compete for top-fives on a regular basis. However, right from the get-go, a black cloud of frustration hung over the team that put an obstacle in their way of achieving that. USAC 3/18

  • Brayden Parr)Consistency has been the key for Brayden Parr throughout this season’s Eureka Garages & Sheds Sprintcar Series, and it’s this consistency that banked him enough points to secure a pleasing third-place series finish.

  • Tony Stewart)Despite getting the opportunity to compete in only one of two United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder Tour events conducted during the recent weekend, ‘Smoke’ Tony Stewart took complete advantage of the opportunity and nearly attained his third victory of the 2019 season, missing that feat by fractions of a second.
