Say What!

“My engine builder over here, Charlie Garrett, used to build the engines for Jim Nace’s car, as well as be good really good friends with him. Charlie told me that if I could only win one race in Central Pennsylvania, let it be the Jim Nace Memorial, This one is for Charlie Garrett. This trophy is going back to his shop. What an awesome job by this whole team. We love coming out here. The fans in this area of the country know how to support sprint car racing. Everyone knows how special this race is. This is definitely a dream come true; unbelievable.” Brian Brown winning the Jim Nace Memorial at Selinsgrove Speedway PA

“I was struggling with the lapped cars. I wasn’t much faster than them so I knew I was kind of in trouble. I felt good in three and four but one and two I didn’t feel like I was good and I thought I’d be a sitting duck. Last night I didn’t do the best job of driving and my parents were brutally honest. My mom said ‘I don’t think Tim Shaffer is any better than you he was just a better driver’ so I had to prove her wrong tonight,”Byron Reed winning the Jim & Joanne Ford Classic at Fremont OH

"This place is special to me, Crew chief Derek (Claxton) and I are always good here. Even when we don't have the fastest car, we just dig deep at the end of the race and get the wins here. I wish we could race here about ten times a year!" Chris Windom winning the USAC Jim Hurtubise Classic at Terre Haute IN

“What a great car. Jeff Rudzik and Joe Demyan (owners) and Cody Jacobs…the whole team…boy that car was awesome to drive. These guys are making it fun again. With the schedule we have we can go where we want and do what we want and it makes it fun all around. It’s crazy…I don’t know why I run so well here. I could bend it really good there (bottom of turns three and four) but getting through the middle seemed really good to me. That car would go places you wouldn’t think it could. Starting 13th tonight I didn’t think we had a shot. We just kept plugging away. My team did, I did…that Scott Gressman engine ran awesome,” Tim Shaffer takes opening night of Jim & Joanne Ford Classic at Fremont OH

Taylor Velasquez won his first URSS race of the year and secured his second consecutive Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Car championship by adding another Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship win in Saturday night’s 25-lap DCRP vs. URSS Sprint Car main event atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval.

  • USAC)Saturday's USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series presented by TRAXXAS season finale at Eldora Speedway is unlike any other on the schedule. First, the "4-Crown Nationals" champ car race is a mere 50 laps in distance on a half-mile track, making it more akin to a sprint than a traditional 100-lap grind. Secondly, Eldora's dirt high banks are a challenge that drivers don't come face-to-face with in these cars at the Terre Haute and Williams Grove half-miles or the one-mile fairgrounds ovals in Indy, Springfield and Du Quoin, all of which are relatively flat in comparison to the "Big E."

Press Releases9/19
  • Mason Moore)Getting off to a great start to the night on Saturday, Mason Moore would have a good run going in the feature event but a lap 12 restart would see him make a mistake that relegated him to a 12th place finish. “The night got off to a really good start, and the F&F Racing guys really gave me a strong car,” Mason Moore said. “I got up into second and misjudged what the leader was going to do on a lap 12 restart and had to go to the back.” Press Releases9/19
  • Justyn Cox)Going toe-to-toe with Michael Kofoid on Saturday night in Placerville, CA, Justyn Cox would come up just short as he finished in the second spot despite a spirited battle with the young driver.“That was a pretty fun race,” Justyn Cox said. “We hurt a shock battling with him on the cushion, but still we were right there and that is a good feeling, and a good night for our race team.” Press Releases9/19

But defending track champion Broc Martin had other ideas the last three laps, diving under Reed numerous times. Reed, who wrapped up his seventh track title last week, held off the challenges and drove to his first ever win in the 10th Annual Jim & Joanne Ford Classic on JLH General Contractor Night. The victory was the fourth of the year at “The Track That Action Built” and the 36th of Reed’s career at Fremont Speedway putting him 11th on the all-time feature win list. Reed, from Monclova, Ohio, led all 40 laps for the big pay day that is honors the Ford family who saved Fremont Speedway from near extinction in 2000.  Race Results 9/16

As for myself, I will look to piece together a limited schedule and hopefully run a 40-50 race schedule next year. Rick and Barb Rogers have followed through on everything they have said since day one, and this decision has been tough for everyone. It is a little bittersweet to step aside, but in the big picture the timing makes sense to allow everyone to get a head start on the 2018 season.” Press Releases9/16

  • USAC)Since its inception more than six decades ago, the Terre Haute Action Track has had distinct eras that seem to resonate with a particular driver. Lately, this era at the famed half-mile dirt oval has belonged to Chris Windom who ran fourth with just four laps remaining and used a daring late-race move on Kevin Thomas, Jr. to capture his third-straight USAC victory at Terre Haute in Friday night's USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car "Jim Hurtubise Classic" aboard the Baldwin Brothers Racing/Fox Paving - AMSOIL/DRC/Claxton Mopar. The Windom/Baldwin connection has now netted four USAC Sprint Car feature wins at Terre Haute dating to 2011. The victory also allowed Windom to join Jack Hewitt as just the second driver to win the "Hurtubise Classic" three times. Windom also became the first to win back-to-back "Hurtubise Classic" races since Hewitt in 1990-1991.USAC9/15

  • Ohsweken Speedway ONT)Ohsweken Speedway officials are pleased to announce that Best Western Cairn Croft Hotel will again sponsor an award at the Arrow Express Canadian Sprint Car Nationals on September 16. The Travis Rutz Long Tow Award presented by Best Western Cairn Croft Hotel includes a $250 CAD cash prize for the team which travels the furthest distance to compete in the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals. The award is named for Travis Rutz, who traveled more than 4,200 kilometres with his team from their Langley, British Columbia home to race in the 2009 Canadian Sprint Car Nationals. Travis' promising career was cut short a week after he arrived in Ohsweken for the first time, as he suffered a severe brain injury in a Sprint Car crash at Terre Haute, Indiana. Although just 21 years old at the time of the crash, Travis’ resume already included a pair of wins in the Gold Cup – western Canada’s most prestigious Sprint Car race – at Edmonton’s Castrol Raceway, and 19 A-Feature wins at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Washington.
