Say What!

 “I feel like having the crew and the team behind you gets your confidence to a whole nother level, I feel like I’m just getting a glimpse of what Donny (Schatz) has had for a long time. Just trying to keep the same guys together and keeping the team together and growing as a team. Not just as myself. That’s been my biggest goal this year, just work good with my guys and work on myself as a driver and just try to get the whole package together.” Sheldon Haudenschild winning Kokomo IN world of Outlaws

  • The Champion Racing Oil/ Central PA Sprint Cars season is one race away from ending. Saturday October 24th BAPS Motor Speedway ran the only race of the weekend for the series, with Anthony Macri taking his 9th win of the year.  With Danny Dietrich having a heat race crash and not running the feature, it made things close up front. The final race of the year is at BAPS Motor Speedway on November 14th. If Danny finishes first or second it doesn't matter what Anthony does.  If Anthony wins and Danny's out of the top two, Anthony can pass him for the points title.  Actually Anthony has to finish in the top two to beat Danny, even if Danny doesn't make the feature again. They are separated by 32 points. Champion Racing Oil/ Central PA Sprints  10/25

  • WI WingLESS)IRA's AutoMeter Wisconsin wingLESS Sprint Series once again proved itself to provide the highest member supported car count per event of any sprint series in the country. Over 70 series specific teams participated, with average car counts in the mid to high 30's as twin B-mains were needed on multiple nights. Eighteen point races were contested (plus two non-point events), and despite Covid, twenty-two teams made themselves point fund eligible based on participation requirements. Nine different teams won feature events with only four visiting victory lane more than once. The Wilmot Raceway has been the home since series its inception in 2015, though the series raced at five other venues too, including the Jackson (MN) Motorplex, Beaver Dam Raceway, 141 Speedway, Plymouth Dirt Track, and Dodge County Fairgrounds. The growth of the group coincides with the tremendous overall quality of the competing cars, and the significant rise in driving talent throughout the field. While a headliner generally at Wilmot, the series played a support role with the World of Outlaws on three occasions, the IRA Outlaw Sprints eight times, and the All Star Circuit of Champions once, not to mention co-headlining with the Dirt King Late Models twice. It's been an amazing ride these first six years for this series and the future looks even brighter. Jimmy Sivia added his name as a IRA series champion this year, edging Wilmot track champion Chris Klemko by a mere three points. The group recognizes an overall champion, as well as a Wilmot Raceway champ. Multiple feature winners included Ryan Zielski, Greg Olsen, Derek Crane, and Davey Ray, while Sivia, Klemko, Tim Cox, Nathan Crane, and Jimmy Kouba all claimed solo wins. The top ten in points were Sivia, Klemko, Allen Hafford, Ryan Marshall (R), D. Crane, Jordan Paulsen, Cox, Vince Bartalotta, N. Crane, and Natalie Klemko. Jimmy Sivia joins Doug Schenck, Todd Lehr, Jordan Mattson, Tim Cox, and Chris Dodd as AutoMeter Wisconsin wingLESS Sprint Series champions. The series is overwhelming based on the GM604 crate engine for power. Special thanks to title sponsor AutoMeter, and presenting sponsors Gandrud Chevrolet Performance Products and Brewington Electric, and a big thank you Hepfner Race Products (HRP) for the cool winner medallions, plus thanks to several other numerous series supporters led by Hoosier Tire, Behling Race Equipment, R&H Enterprises, Lane Automotive/Allstar Performance, and many others. 10/23
