Rick Ziehl Rebounds With ASCS Southwest Triumph At Arizona Speedway

QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (September 24, 2016) It didn't take long for Rick Ziehl to rebound in the chase for the 2016 Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Regional Championship, as the New Mexico shoe posted his third victory of the 2016 season at the Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, Ariz. on Saturday night.

A DNS in the series previous visit, Ziehl entered Saturday with a slim 25 point advantage, but has extended that to 61.

Picking off the win from the ninth starting spot, Ziehl had his work cut out for him as Lorne Wofford ran the show from the drop of the green flag. Finding the No. 18 on Lap 19, the pair exchanged the lead several times before Rick was finally able to secure the top spot on Lap 22.

Making it a New Mexico one, two; Lorne Wofford held on for second with Arizona's J.T. Imperial taking the final step on the podium. From 11th, Colton Hardy climbed to fourth, and in doing so, has advanced to second in the tour standings. Lance Norick made up the top five.

Making the trip from Montana, Jeremy McCune was the night's SpeedMart Hard Charger from 17th to sixth. Alex Pettas followed from 16th. Billy Chester III, Josh Shipley, and Jeff Slinkard completed the top-ten.

The Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region will again grace the clay of the Arizona Speedway on Saturday, October 8. For continued updates on the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region, log onto http://www.ascsracing.com.

Thrilling Victory For Wayne Johnson in $10,000 Hockett/McMillin Memorial Finale

WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 24, 2016) A race for the ages at Lucas Oil Speedway; Oklahoma's Wayne Johnson and Tennessee's Sammy Swindell put on a thriller of a show for Saturday's $10,000 top prize in the sixth annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

"You know, Jack [Hockett] means the world to me. Connie and everything she's going through, and everything this family has gone through these last 10 years. They're all really dear to my heart and I've wanted to win this damn race for a long time, but we've always sucked here but my buddy up there let us win this one," exclaimed an jubilant, Wayne Johnson.

Johnson's second win in as many nights, the City Vending No. 2c led the opening two rounds as Swindell made the pass just as the caution flew. Putting Johnson back to the point, Sammy swapped the cushion for the hub to get the pass off the second turn as the race worked to the fifth lap.

Delayed near the races' halfway point for a pair of red flags, the first flew for Brian Bell who made hard contact with the fence. The delay to assess the damage resulted in an open red. The next stoppage was shortly after for Thomas Kennedy who biked the car through the first and second turns with damaging results.

In the chaos of reds and restarts, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. advanced to the runner-up spot.

Keeping pace with Swindell, the Lucas Oil ASCS Point's Leader ran the diamond line. Keeping his momentum up, and holding off any potential slide jobs, Sam kept pace with Sammy for several laps before the veteran racer began to pull away.

Red for one final time in the closing laps for Jason McDougal, who walked away unscathed, the restart would nearly be Hafertepe's undoing as the car biked hard through turns one and two. Bending the Jacobs Ladder on the No 15h, the misstep allowed Johnson, who has fallen as far back as fifth, the chance to rebound as cars scrambled to avoid Sam. Moving back into second, Wayne rolled to Swindell's tail tank with four laps to get the job done; and the opportunity was about to present itself.

"I ran the center there and got by [Logan] Forler, and then when Sam messed up, I just set sail and I could see that Sammy was getting real tight on the curb, but everybody was and I just tried something different and entered above it and drove down the hill and hell, that thing just launched."

Ultimately exchanging the lead four times in the final three rotations, Johnson would finally clear the No. 3s for the top spot coming to the white flag. The margin of victory was 1.661 seconds. While the runner-up finish was far from what Sammy has wanted, Swindell made a statement with three nights on the podium

"If I hadn't messed up we could have had it. We had a good car and for running no more races than we've run, and with this place being a little bit different tonight than it has been, it's not bad again to have just run these few races and be able to compete for the win every night, but that, we just gave it away really," stated Swindell.

Running up from eighth, Washington's Logan Forler brought his Steve Forler Trucking No. 2L home on the final podium step despite having to fight the setup in the closing laps, "It took us three nights to get this thing rolling, and tonight we were really good. I think we really would have been in contention for the win if we hadn't broke the shocks off when we hit Sam, but everything was great this weekend and we ended up with a solid run."

Despite the damaged rear suspension, Sam Hafertepe, Jr, was able to rebound from the bike to fourth with Derek Hagar roaring from 18th to complete the top five after winning a B-Feature.

Josh Baughman from 10th finished sixth with Blake Hahn marching to seventh from 13th. Battling early at the front of the field, Jonathan Cornell slipped back an eighth place showing with Brian Brown ninth. Going upside down in his Qualifier, Johnny Herrera had to advance through a B-Feature. With a broken Maxim Chassis to work with, the New Mexico shoe ran from 21st to round out the top-ten.

Overall, the sixth annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial drew 68 drivers to the Lucas Oil Speedway. Saturday's program included seven heats. Jason McDougal, Brian Bell, Seth Bergman, Brandon Hanks, Zach Chappell, Brad Loyet, and Josh Baughman topped Heat Race action. Qualifiers were won by Thomas Kennedy, Josh Baughman, and Jay Russell. A trio of B-Features went to Aaron Reutzel, Derek Hagar, and Brad Loyet.

Provisionals were used by Kyle Bellm and Danny Thoman.

The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network heads for the I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. for the next showdown on Saturday, October 1 for the $6,000 to win Fall Brawl.

Wayne Johnson Survives Traffic For Hockett/McMillin Friday Night Victory
WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 23, 2016) So far, it's the veterans who have been the top dogs at the sixth annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial as Wayne Johnson survived slower traffic heavier than a New York traffic jam for victory in Friday's Preliminary A-Feature event with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

 

With the win, Johnson will start Saturday's $10,000 to win A-Feature from the pole as his event point total edged out Sammy Swindell by one marker for the number one spot.

"We've run this series for a long time, and Jesse Hockett was a good friend of mine and of course, Jack [Hockett] could tell all the good stories but man, hats off to my crew. Bud and Slip, they've been working their butts off on this thing. It feels like we've changed cars about 25 time this year but that Maxim sure was working good tonight," commented Wayne on his second National Tour triumph of the season.

Non-stop for 25 laps, Wayne shot from the pole to the point, setting a rapid pace around the three-eight mile Lucas Oil Speedway.

Slicing in and out of slower traffic, Johnson was able to take his City Vending No. 2c to a nearly three second advantage, but the moves would begin to slow; allowing Aaron Reutzel to close the gap in the closing laps with seventh starting, Sammy Swindell, making his presence known.

Moving in on the No. 2c in the final laps, Reutzel showed his nose one time but would not be able to complete the pass.

"I thought I screwed up there with about three to go when Aaron showed me his nose that one time," explained Wayne. "I was trapped. There were lapped cars so I thought well, if there's lapped cars there, he can't me and get by them either but it worked out."

Keeping the No. 87 at bay, Johnson crossed 0.938 seconds ahead of Aaron, who battled hard with Swindell in the closing laps.

"The track was so fast, you had to wait for guys to make mistakes or wait for traffic and luckily I got there pretty quick on the bottom," said Aaron. "Wayne was a straight-a-away ahead of us and we ran him down but he was in the right place at the right time and made the right moves. We can't hold our heads down about this one. This is way better than last night."

With the car rolling solid, Sammy raced to a third place finish.

"We didn't have the problems on the car tonight like we did last night. We had a couple issues, but we got those resolved and we had a good night. It was just the track was a bit faster and narrower so to come from the back of a Heat and with the way the points deal works out, we had to come from a way back again but all in all, in the end,
we were running those guys down."

Tony Bruce, Jr. brought the Smith Racing No. 86 home fourth with Jack Dover coming from tenth to complete the top-five. Matt Covington from 11th came home sixth with Jonathan Cornell seventh. Transferring from the B-Feature, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. came from 17th to eighth with Brandon Hanks ninth. Following Hafertepe through the B-Main, Johnny Herrera charged from 20th to complete the top-ten.

With Johnson and Swindell on the front row, the second row will see Tony Bruce, Jr. and Jonathan Cornell going side-by-side. John Carney II and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. will start from the third row with Brian Brown and Logan Forler completing the Top 8 lock-ins into Saturday's championship event.

The finale of the sixth annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial at the Lucas Oil Speedway will get underway with Hot Laps at 5:00 P.M. and racing at 6:30 P.M. (CDT). Event coverage can be found at http://www.racinboys.com or http://www.lucasoilracingtv.com.

Johnny Herrera Rolls To Victory In Hockett/McMillin Memorial Opener

WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 22, 2016) Besting a stout lineup of 65 drivers, New Mexico's Johnny Herrera was the class of the field on Thursday night, earning the top spot in Thursday's kick off to the sixth annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial at the Lucas Oil Speedway with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

Utilizing a late race restart, Johnny sailed his MVT No. 45x to the cushion to take the lead away from race long leader, Sammy Swindell, despite having worked the bottom early to the front of the field.

"Someone showed me the bottom early, and I was working that line when I showed him my nose there and then he dropped down and blocked that," commented Herrera of early attempts for the lead. "After that, the bottom started going away or at least I wasn't as good as I was early and after that red, I committed to just sail the top and it worked."

Working through a pair of cautions in the opening laps, the field gave chase to Sammy Swindell as Herrera worked to hold off Jonathan Cornell. Able to keep the Kiowa Line Builders No. 28 at bay for the first half of the A-Feature, Cornell rolled the bottom to second and eventually the lead while working Lap 15 with Herrera in tow. Caution in the same breath, the lineup reverted back to the last fully completed lap; putting Swindell to the point and Cornell to second.

With brakes fading on the Acme Grapix No. 3s, Swindell made the car as wide as possible but again, it was Cornell to the front only to have the red negate the move as Josh Baughman tagged the wall off the fourth turn.

Able to keep his No. 3s to the bottom, Swindell held the lead with Herrera keeping pace. Working to slower traffic, Johnny switched lines to the top for the lead, but again, the caution flew in favor of Swindell on Lap 21. Twisting up his No. 45x, Johnny took the lead on the restart, and this time the caution flew in Johnny's favor.

Green for the final time, Johnny set sail to a 1.434 second advantage at the checkered flag.

"I knew we had a good car, but Sammy is just tough to beat," stated Johnny. "He's a veteran, just like me, and anytime you can race hard with him and outrun him, that's always a great thing."

John Carney II battled to a third place finish with Brad Loyet coming from seventh to fourth. After contending for the lead early on, Jonathan Cornell slipped to complete the top-five.

From 10th, Wayne Johnson ran up to a sixth place finish with Brian Brown seventh. Sam Hafertepe, Jr. from 13th crossed eighth with Seth Bergman making the most of a Provisional Start to charge from 23rd to ninth. From 21st, Matt Covington came up to round out the top-ten.

Drawing a field of 65 drivers, eight Heat Races went to Derek Hagar, Chris Morgan, Tony Bruce, Jr., John Carney II, Wayne Johnson, Sam Hafertepe, Jr., and Corey Nelson. Qualifiers were won by Johnny Herrera, Brian Brown, and Harli White. A trio of B-Features went to Taylor Walton, Chris Martin, and Jack Dover. Provisionals were utilized by Aaron Reutzel, Seth Bergman, and Evan Martin.

Event points following Thursday's opener finds Johnny Herrera atop with 397 markers. The margin is 11 over Sammy Swindell. John Carney II with 382 is third with Brian Brown at 366. Wayne Johnson makes up the top-five in a tie with Brian Brown.

Hockett/McMillin Memorial Fires Off This Thursday

TULSA, Okla. (September 19, 2016) Arguably two of Sprint Car racing's biggest ambassadors was Jesse Hockett and Daniel McMillin. Cousins closer than brothers, both were taken from this world much too soon and in the wake of their passing, teams and fans continue to flock to the "ShowMe State" to honor their legacy.

An event that continues to gather some of the best talent in Motorsports, the sixth annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial will see its biggest year yet as the event expands to three nights. Running from Thursday, September 22 to Saturday, September 24, the Hockett/McMillin Memorial will headline with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, in conjunction with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs.

On top of the added day, comes added money as the Saturday finale for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour will feature a $10,000 top prize. The two ASCS preliminary A-Features on Thursday and Friday will award $3,000 to the winners. Joined by the BOSS Chassis WAR Sprint Cars each night, the all open-wheel weekend continues to build upon a dream that Jesse sought for Sprint Car racing in his home state.

Rolling into the weekend, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. leads the way with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network with a 253 point advantage over Johnny Herrera.

Sam comes into the three-night affair as the most recent winner in National Tour competition at the "Diamond of Dirt Tracks", having topped the 2016 Speedweek final on June 18, 2016. Herrera looks to back up his 2013 performance in which the Albuquerque, N.M. shoe won the finale of the Hockett/McMillin Memorial.

Blake Hahn enters the weekend third in tour standings with a narrow margin over Wayne Johnson. Separated by 11 points, neither have found Victory Lane at Lucas Oil Speedway. Johnson has come close on two occasions with a pair of podium finishes to his credit.

Rounding out the top-five in Matt Covington, but by only one point over Logan Forler. Both are in search of their first National Tour wins of the 2016 season. Picking up the win this past Saturday with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region at the Missouri State Fair Speedway, Seth Bergman looks to continue that momentum. Seventh in standings, Seth has the chance to jump into the top-five as he trails Covington by only 14 points. Aaron Reutzel holds eight with Josh Baughman and Kyle Bellm making up the top-ten in tour standings.

For the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, the race for the top has tightened over the past few races as Jonathan Cornell has suffered some mechanical setbacks. Bringing Evan Martin to a 166 point deficit, the pair are alone at the top as Danny Thoman trails by 381 points. Austin Alumbaugh and Cody Baker make up the top-five.

Thursday, September 22 and Friday, September 23 will open at 5:00 P.M. with Hot Laps at 7:00 P.M. Saturday, September 24 will move up to a 4:00 P.M. open time and 6:45 P.M. (CDT) Hot Laps. For more information on the Lucas Oil Speedway, log onto http://www.lucasoilspeedway.com.

The Format:

All drivers will compete on both qualifying nights as combined points from Heat Races, Qualifiers, B-Mains, and A-Mains will set the lineup for Top 8 on Saturday night. Any tie in points will be broken by Friday's passing point totals. ASCS Format will be utilized with draw in for Heat Race starting position and passing points to determine drivers who advance to Qualifiers and B-Mains.

Each night, Top 30 in Passing Points from Heat Races will move into Qualifiers. Remainder will fall to the tail of the night's "B" Features. Top 18 will be inverted with the highest point earner from Heat Races starting sixth in the first Qualifier. Qualifiers will be 8 laps each. Passing Points will be utilized with the driver's total points combined with their Heat Race total. The top 16 in combined Passing Points will advance to the A-Feature. Drivers will not redraw for their starting position. Lineup is straight up by the combined Passing Point total. The remainder will fall into B-Features. Number of B-Features is dependent upon the number of cars. 40-50 cars means remaining drivers will drop into two "B" Features. 51-60 will drop into three "B" Features. Lineup will be done by passing point totals with 17th going to the pole of the first "B" Feature, 18th to the pole of the second "B" Feature, etc.

If one B is needed, the top 6 drivers will advance to the A-Feature. If two B's, then the top three, if three B's, then the top two.

Following the completion of Friday's program, event points will be totaled with the Top 8 locked in, straight up, into Saturday's A-Feature. All other drivers will redraw for Heats and Qualifiers on Saturday with the Top 8 in combined Passing Points advancing, straight up, into position's 9-16 in the A-Feature, all other drivers will fall into B-Mains.

Thursday and Friday Race Points will follow the following scale:

Heat Race:

125 122 119 116 113 110 107 104 101 98

Qualifiers:

125 122 119 116 113 110 107 104 101 98

B-Feature: Based on number of B-Features. Starting with the first non-transfer:

87 86 85 84 83 82 81 80 79 78

A-Feature: Based on ASCS points structure for standard A-Mains:

150 142 135 130 125 122 119 116 113 110 108 106 104 102 100 98 96 94 92 90 89 88

**ASCS National Driver Point, Regional Attendance, and Promoter's Provisionals will be allowed, but will not award event points for the A-Feature. Points will be calculated from the position earned prior to the Provisional. Purse structure for each night is as follows:

Fall Fling Returns To Creek County Speedway With Lucas Oil ASCS Headliner

TULSA, Okla. (September 16, 2016) The first big scale event ever held at the Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. was the "Fall Fling". Removed from the Oklahoma oval's schedule for nearly two decades, the event will return in 2016 as the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will the Fall Fling on Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5.

The two day affair will follow the standard Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour format and payout with Friday offering a $3,000 winner's check while Saturday will payout $4,000 to the winner.

"When we started the Fall Fling in 1986, it was a Micro event and we done it up until we recut the track and got ASCS going in 1992. After that, with everything we had going on, it was just tough to keep focus on Creek County but now, we have a chance to bring the event back and bring major Sprint Car racing back to the Tulsa area," explained Emmett Hahn, who founded Creek County Speedway and later the American Sprint Car Series.

"That's one thing when we talk with fans around here, is they want to see big Sprint Car shows where they don't have to travel five and six hours and Creek is about perfect for that. Not only that, it's just a fun little track where we can put on a good show for the drivers and the fans."

Along with the Lucas Oil ASCS, the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products will co-sanction the event.

The birthplace of the ASCS rules package, Creek County Speedway is a quarter-mile egg shaped oval situated along old Route 66 between Kellyville and Sapulpa. For more information on Creek County Speedway, log onto http://www.creekcountyspeedway.co.

Billy Chester Charges To Lealand McSpadden Classic Victory

 QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (September 10, 2016) The inaugural Lealand McSpadden Classic had nearly everything you could ask for as Arizona's Billy Chester III found his way to the top of the podium for the second time in his career with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region at the Arizona Speedway on Saturday night.

Gridding the field eighth, Chester advanced towards the front with haste; moving to the runner-up spot on Lap 9. Giving chase to Josh Shipley, who was in his first ASCS Winged appearance in the Verville owned No. 01jr, a slight spin would advance Chester to the lead with five laps to run.

Earning the night's $2,000 top prize, Chester was followed to the line by Bob Ream, Jr. who closed to within 25 point of Rick Ziehl in the season's championship battle as Rick was unable to start in Saturday's A-Feature.

The bronze position went to Colton Hardy who rocketed to the front from 15th. Alex Pettas and Jesse Baker made up the top-five.

Matt Rossi walked away with a sixth place showing with Lance Norick seventh. From 13th, Jeff Slinkard came up to eighth with James Aragon and Casey Buckman completing the top-ten.

Johnny Herrera Masters ASCS Red River At Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track

FT. WORTH, Texas (September 10, 2016) The U.S. National Dirt Track Championship at the Texas Motor Speedway added a new name to the list of winners as New Mexico's Johnny Herrera led green to checkered for his first triumph of the season with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products.

Season win No. 5, as well as his fifth overall with the ASCS Red River Region, Herrera won the drag race into the first turns over Wayne Johnson to grab the early advantage. With Johnson in tow, the pair was joined quickly by fifth starting John Carney II.

Rolling to second on the opening round, Carney set sights on the lead with Herrera able to hold off the charge of the Lubbock Wrecker Service No. 11x.

Finding slower traffic, the Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 45x made quick work of back markers, putting several car lengths between he and Carney as Danny Jennings, from sixth, began closing in.

Taking over the runner-up spot on Lap 17, Jennings slowly closed in, and would have his shot as the caution flew with five laps to run, however, on the restart, a damaged nose wing would finally bite Jennings as the front end flew on the restart, allowing Herrera to roll away to victory.

Despite the damage to the leading wing, Jennings was able to hold on to second. Riding fourth the majority of the A-Feature, Blake Hahn worked corner after corner to get around John Carney II with the slide job finally paying off coming to the checkered flag for third. Carney would roll by fourth with Brandon Hanks rolling the cushion to fifth.

Wayne Johnson grabbed sixth with Raven Culp bringing his No. 3 machine from 14th to seventh. Mickey Walker, Brandon Long, and Kade Morton made up the top-ten.

The American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products will see action again on October 8 at the Timberline Speedway in Corley, Texas. Only three nights remain on the 2016 season.

Aaron Reutzel Storms To Lucas Oil ASCS Jackson Nationals Victory

JACKSON, Minn. (September 4, 2016) With an up and down season in 2016, Aaron Reutzel sailed to cloud-nine at the 38th AGCO Jackson Nationals as the Dissolvalloy No. 87 utilized a restart with two laps remaining to get the run around Ian Madsen to win the night's $10,000 prize with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

"This is unbelievable. This is just unbelievable. I have some other choice words I want to say, but this is just unbelievable," said a jubilant Aaron Reutzel who picked up his second Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour win of the season.

"This is just awesome. You know, we're just back to having fun. J.J. [Simmons] came on board me. We grew up together and since he's been here, we've had positive attitudes and as soon as he came over, we starting having good runs. We really needed this one bad."

Gridding the field 14th, Reutzel was fast from the start. Quickly into the top-ten, Aaron spent the second lap dicing it up with Johnny Herrera for the sixth position. Working low on the No. 45x, in three and four, Aaron threw the slide in turns one and two on Lap 3 but would miss the bottom.

Sending the No. 87 across the track and into Herrera's left front; the contact sent the No. 45x flipping off the top of the Jackson Motorplex.

"I can't stress enough how sorry I am for Johnny," said Reutzel. "I hadn't gone down there the whole race, and I slide him in three and four and it stuck and when I went to turns one and two, I thought I'd do the same, but when I slipped off the bottom and just slid across the track and the mistake I made was trying to stop it instead of just riding it out and I know he didn't even have enough time to touch the brake. Again, I just have to apologize to him, Ann [Herrera], and Chris [Stivers}. I really am sorry."

With no damage to the No. 87, Aaron rode just outside the top-five with Danny Lasoski in fifth. Giving the Team Jack Foundation No. 1m a run, the race lead was in the hands of Ian Madsen as Kerry Madsen and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. gave chase.

Caution on Lap 17 for Harli White who laid a trail of water through turns one and two, Aaron rolled to third around Lasoski and Hafertepe on the restart. With the laps clicking off, the night's $10,000 check looked to be in the hands of Ian Madsen, but the caution flew on last time on Lap 23 as Danny Lasoski's night ended with an early trip to the pits.

To the green, it was Madsen and Madsen with both Ian and Kerry rolling low to protect against the slide, but leaving the high side open was all it took. Taking second from Kerry down the back stretch, Aaron charged the bottom side into turn three. Letting the No. 87 slide to the cushion, Aaron was side by side with Ian Madsen for the lead with Aaron able to complete the move.

With momentum to his advantage, Reutzel crossed 1.077 seconds ahead of Ian at the checkered flag.

"It sucks, but there's not much you can do. I just got a little unlucky there at the end but congrats to Aaron and his team. He drove a great race to come from that far back, but this was a really strong run for our team," commented Ian on the runner-up finish.

Kerry Madsen crossed third with Josh Baughman coming from eighth to fourth. Sam Hafertepe, Jr. completed the night's top-five. Sixth went to Gregg Bakker with Carson McCarl seventh. From 15th, Wayne Johnson brought the No. 2c home eighth with Skylar Prochaska following from 16th to ninth. Having to utilize a provisional and back-up engine, Seth Bergman charged from 24th to complete the top-ten.

With 41 overall drivers making the trip to the 38th AGCO Jackson Nationals, 38 took part in Sunday's finale. Four Heat Races were topped by Carson McCarl, Ryan Bickett, Kaley Gharst, and Johnny Herrera. Twin B-Mains went to Harli White and Logan Forler. Matt Covington and Seth Bergman used point's based Provisionals.

Ian Madsen Fantastic In Lucas Oil ASCS Jackson Nationals Opener

JACKSON, Minn. (September 2, 2016) The opening of the 38th AGCO Jackson Nationals was one for the "Aussies" as the Madsen brothers brought fans to their feet on Friday night with Ian fending off Kerry in the closing laps for his first score of the season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

"I don't know. He started eighth so he must have been pretty good," chuckled Ian when asked if the win gave him some bragging rights. "We had a really good race car. It was just really hard to know where to go in one and two on the restarts."

The 15th winner on the season, Friday's score is Madsen's second career Lucas Oil ASCS triumph, as the driver of the No. 18 took full advantage of his pole starting position; holding off Johnny Herrera in the opening laps. Caution on Lap 8 for Brian Brown, who nearly tagged the wall fighting an oil leak, the restart saw Lucas Oil ASCS point's leader, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. roll top shelf around Herrera for the runner-up spot.

Taking car lengths off Madsen's advantage before the caution flew again on Lap 13 for Aaron Reutzel who lost the power steering in the No. 87, the Hwy. 79 collision No. 15h was set for slide.

Building the run, Hafertepe let loose the slide job on lap 19 to take over the top spot off the fourth turn. Turning the Aspen Air No. 18 down the track, Madsen returned the favor through turns one and two on Lap 20.

"We were pretty good on the bottom, but just kept getting worse down there and I thought we were going to move up soon and that's when Sam Hafertepe got by us, but luckily we were able to get back by him and protect the line up there," said Madsen.

Elbows up and running, Madsen was not out of the woods as he was joined by Kerry and Sam in a three wide battle off turn four with Hafertepe holding the position before the Elk Grove Ford No. 117 made the pass on the twenty-first round. Having charged from 12th, Danny Lasoski let the battle play to his advantage to move to third on Lap 22. Keeping pace with the No. 18, Kerry made his final attempt for the lead in the closing laps, but was denied as Ian would go on to win by 1.788 seconds.

Danny Lasoski crossed third with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. able to hold on for the final transfer into Saturday's $10,000 to win feature event. After challenging early on, Johnny Herrera completed the top-five.

Lee Grosz was sixth with Matt Covington coming from the second B-Main to finish seventh in the T&L Foundry No. 95. Blake Hahn advanced six position to eighth with Wayne Johnson and Tim Kaeding completing the top-ten.

The opening night of the AGCO Jackson Nationals saw 39 drivers checking in. Five Heat Races went to Carson McCarl, Tim Kaeding, Sam Hafertepe, Jr., Seth Bergman, and Tasker Phillips.

Ready For The Return; Matt Covington Looking To Defend 2014 Jackson Nationals Win
TULSA, Okla. (August 29, 2016) For the 38th year, the Jackson Nationals will roar to life at the half-mile Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn. with the joining of three disciplines of Sprint Car racing as the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network teams up with the National Sprint League, and the Heartland Racing Association Non-Wing Sprints for three nights starting Friday, September 2, 2016.

Last seeing the Minnesota oval in 2014, Oklahoma's Matt Covington added his name to the list of winners in his first visit to the half-mile.

"I feel good about going back to Jackson. We're hungry for a win and I feel like we have a great opportunity to do that," commented Covington about going back to the Jackson Motorplex. "We've had great speed in the car, just need a little luck behind us to have a good night. I haven't been there since they redid the track. I know they've done a lot of work, but talking with some of the guys who have been there, they said they didn't really reconfigure it too much from when we were there last."

A staggered event between three sanctions, the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network along the HRA Non-Wing Sprints will kick things off on Friday night. Onward to Saturday, the National Sprint League will take center stage along with the Non-Wing warriors before all three sanctions take to the clay on Sunday.

"We're trying to get the 410 back together for this one. Just waiting on a few parts and looking at the payout and whether it would be worth it. Since it's Friday, Sunday with the 360 and Saturday, Sunday with the 410, we want to get it put together just in case. It might be a good chance to make some money, especially since we had a car get destroyed at Knoxville."

Asked about trying for the triple, Covington chuckled, saying he'll stick to the wings, "I've never run non-wing, and I'm not really in a position to play around with that. Probably hit a non-wing show at Creek County, but not Jackson. I'd like too, but wouldn't have a very good shot"

With 100 plus of the nation's best Sprint Car drivers expected or the Labor Day spectacular, the payoff is certainly worth the travel as the Lucas Oil ASCS will be running for a top prize of $10,000 while the National Sprint League ups that to $25,000. With several drivers looking to run double duty, that could set up for a pretty nice Christmas.

While the season hasn't progressed like Covington had hoped after leading the point standings early on, the T&L Foundry/A-Rock Materials No. 95 is currently sixth in tour standings with seven top-five runs and 17 top-tens on the season. In his 2014 win at the Jackson Motorplex, Matt led start to finish.

Adding the Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals to his resume that same year, it's now been 69 races since Covington visited Victory Lane with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. In that time, the No. 95 has been on the podium 11 times.

"Again, we've got the speed. It was the same thing going into Jackson when we won, where we had the speed just not the luck so hopefully we can put it all together again and take home another win."

The 38th AGCO Jackson Nationals takes place over the 2016 Labor Day Weekend with action Friday, September 2 through Sunday, September 4. Each day, the Pits will open at 2:00 P.M. with the main Grandstands opening at 5:00 P.M. Hot Laps each night will be at 7:00 P.M. (CDT).

Hockett/McMillin Memorial Format To Feature Three Full Nights

TULSA, Okla. (August 24, 2016) The 6th annual tribute to the lives of Jesse Hockett and Daniel McMillin at Missouri's Lucas Oil Speedway is setting up to be a massive event for fans and drivers alike, as the 2016 edition will feature three full nights of racing with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, and the BOSS Chassis W.A.R. Sprint Cars.

Scheduled for September 22-24, 2016 at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will see three full nights of racing with event points setting up the Top 8 in Saturday's $10,000 to win A-Feature lineup.

The Format:

All drivers will compete on both qualifying nights as combined points from Heat Races, Qualifiers, B-Mains, and A-Mains will set the lineup for Top 8 on Saturday night. Any tie in points will be broken by Friday's passing point totals. ASCS Format will be utilized with draw in for Heat Race starting position and passing points to determine drivers who advance to Qualifiers and B-Mains.

Each night, Top 30 in Passing Points from Heat Races will move into Qualifiers. Remainder will fall to the tail of the night's "B" Features. Top 18 will be inverted with the highest point earner from Heat Races starting sixth in the first Qualifier. Qualifiers will be 8 laps each. Passing Points will be utilized with the driver's total points combined with their Heat Race total. The top 16 in combined Passing Points will advance to the A-Feature. Drivers will not redraw for their starting position. Lineup is straight up by the combined Passing Point total. The remainder will fall into B-Features. Number of B-Features is dependent upon the number of cars. 40-50 cars means remaining drivers will drop into two "B" Features. 51-60 will drop into three "B" Features. Lineup will be done by passing point totals with 17th going to the pole of the first "B" Feature, 18th to the pole of the second "B" Feature, etc.

If one B is needed, the top 6 drivers will advance to the A-Feature. If two B's, then the top three, if three B's, then the top two.

Following the completion of Friday's program, event points will be totaled with the Top 8 locked in, straight up, into Saturday's A-Feature. All other drivers will redraw for Heats and Qualifiers on Saturday with the Top 8 in combined Passing Points advancing, straight up, into position's 9-16 in the A-Feature, all other drivers will fall into B-Mains.

Thursday and Friday Race Points will follow the following scale:

Heat Race:

125 122 119 116 113 110 107 104 101 98

Qualifiers:

125 122 119 116 113 110 107 104 101 98

Brian Brown Pockets $15,000 To Win Lucas Oil ASCS High Roller Classic

SEDALIA, Mo. (August 21, 2016) Denied the big prize in 2015, Brian Brown was all business as the Casey’s General Store/FVP No. 21 led start-to-finish in Sunday’s W-K Chevrolet High Roller Classic presented by Casey’s General Stores with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network at Sedalia’s Missouri State Fair Speedway.

Brown’s second career National Tour triumph at the “Historic Half-Mile”, and 17th overall with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour, the $15,000 payday was made all the sweeter as the Missouri native brought along the memory of Bryan Clauson.

“This win is for Bryan Clauson, Matt Wood Racing, and Elk Grove Ford. A lot of you may not know this, but that’s one of Bryan’s engines and Matt Wood let us borrow it so he’s been riding with us the whole night and all his crew guys are here. If we can bring a smile to their face just for a minute, it’s worth it,”

Rolling top-shelf into the race lead through the first two turns after starting third, Brown led Sam Hafertepe, Jr. and Josh Baughman through the opening laps. Challenged briefly by the No. 15h, following a restart on Lap 1, Brown was able to quickly extend his advantage with traffic coming into play on Lap 7.

Allowing Hafertepe to close, the caution would bring the field single file on the eighth circuit. With clean air to his advantage, Brown’s No. 21 powered away from the field. Meeting traffic again at the race’s half-way point, the gap between first and second was again cut down quickly by Sam Hafertepe, Jr. who now had Wayne Johnson to contend with for the runner-up spot. Taking the fight to the back of the field, Brown worked feverishly to keep Hafertepe and Johnson at bay before the caution again flew on Lap 22 for Brad Loyet.

To the green, the race on the track was for third as Josh Baughman, who had fallen as far back as sixth, was on the rebound. Denied the spot by Wayne Johnson, the final rounds were in sight with Brian Brown setting sail once again, but one last caution flew on Lap 28 for Kyle Bellm who lost an engine while running seventh.

Keeping the field to his back bumper, the race for the silver was three wide as Josh Baughman stormed the bottom groove to jump from fourth to second on the restart, but would not be able to catch the No. 21.

Baughman’s second podium of the weekend, the Texas native now has a dozen top-five finishes in Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition in 56 feature starts.

“We had a great car, we’re just not good from the front row but we’re on the podium every night. I can’t say enough about my team. We’re there and I hope the wins come really soon. These guys work really hard,” said Baughman who was able to claim the runner-up spot despite the engine appearing to let down in the closing laps.

Able to follow Baughman by the No. 15h, Wayne Johnson put the City Vending No. 2c on the final podium step for the wily veteran’s fifth podium of the season.

“I’ve got to thank my guys, they’ve been busting their butts. We built this car is a couple of day here a couple weeks ago and we’ve been working on this thing ever since. This car is a Maxim and it’s really changed our year. We struggled and struggled but now, when me make adjustments to this thing, you can tell and it’s showing with the way we’re finishing.”

Commenting on the final restart, Johnson said, “I really figured Sam was going to block us on that last restart, so went to the top, and when I did, that opened the door for Josh to slide us both, but that’s part of it.”

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. would hold on for a fourth place finish with Danny Lasoski bringing the Team Jack Foundation No. 1m home fifth. Matt Covington from 11th crossed the line sixth with Terry McCarl charging from 17th to seventh. With mechanical issues sending the No. 28 to the pits early in the B-Main, a Promoter’s Provisional put the Sedalia driver 25th in the lineup with Cornell not wasting the chance with a run to eighth with Blake Hahn following in ninth.

Having won the B-Feature, Johnny Herrera was subsequently disqualified for going to his pit before reporting to the scales. While the No. 45x was stripped of the B-Main win, Herrera was still eligible to utilize a point’s based provisional and in doing so, was able to run from 23rd to tenth.

The Missouri State Fair Speedway saw 31 drivers in competition. Four Heat Races went to Brian Brown, Chris Morgan, Danny Lasoski, and Kyle Bellm. Terry McCarl was credited with the win in the B-Feature. Provisional starters numbered three with Danny Thoman in with 100% attendance with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps in 2016. Johnny Herrera used a point’s based provisional, and Jonathan Cornell was granted a Promoter’s Provisional.

The next event for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will be the AGCO Jackson Nationals at the Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn. with the National Sprint League. The Lucas Oil ASCS will complete on Friday, September 2 and Sunday, September 4 of the three day event.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Holds On For Lucas Oil ASCS Victory at St. Francois County Raceway

FARMINGTON, Mo. (August 20, 2016) The debut of the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network at the St. Francois County Raceway came down to the final lap as Sam Hafertepe, Jr. narrowly held off local track champion, Joey Montgomery, at the line to win the Dean Adams Classic.

Leading from the drop of the green, the race's third and final caution flew as the leaders took the white flag. Going back to the last fully completed lap, the final rounds were a dogfight as Hafertepe worked every inch of the quarter-mile oval to hold off Montgomery, who had marched to second from the 10th starting spot.

"I told everybody all night that No. 5 car was probably the best car here," commented Sam who notched his seventh National Tour win of the season. "I knew he started back pretty far. We were so good for so long, I wasn't sure where he was and I was getting through lapped traffic pretty good, but thank God the race wasn't one more lap."

Taking off from the outside of the front row, Hafertepe had to outrun Josh Baughman into the first two turns. Keeping the No. 17 at bay after several attempts at the lead through the opening laps, the Hwy. 79 Collision No. 15h found the back of the field on Lap 7.

Caution before being able to put many cars a lap down on Lap 9 for Derek Hagar, the restart was short lived as Brad Loyet and Jeff Masson rolled to a stop in turns one and two. Hager took advantage of the situation to return to the racing surface as he was still on the lead lap, but would still see his night end early.

Trying to keep pace with Hafertepe, the No. 17 of Josh Baughman had his hands full with Joey Montgomery. Working the Odessa, Texas racer to third after several laps, the leaders were again in slower traffic. Allowing the No. 5 to close the gap, the laps were clicking off faster than the gap could close, but the caution would set up for a fight to the finish.

Railing the top of the St. Francois Country Raceway, Montgomery set the No. 15h in the crosshairs, but the slide and block off the final turn was just enough to keep the driver from Fredericktown, Mo. out of Victory Lane.

With the very loud approval of the fans, Joey Montgomery's runner up finish marks the second time the Missouri driver has finished on the podium in Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition; matching his performance at West Plains Motor Speedway on July 27, 2002.

"It laid rubber down there, so I knew I had to do something else. It was working, but he did what he should have. He came up and that's exactly what you need to do," commented Montgomery when asked about the last lap attempt at the win.

With his race including a little bumper tag with Montgomery, the No. 17 of Josh Baughman placed third for his fifth podium of the season with the Lucas Oil ASCS. "I hate giving up starting on the front row there, but overall we had a good night. We've been on the podium I think the last month and a half we been out here so we've got nothing to hang our head about. Just one of those deals where we could have made a couple changes, but congratulations to Sam. He's no slouch. Does this for a living, and he's taught me a lot."

Coming from eighth, Oklahoma's Wayne Johnson claimed the fourth spot ahead of Logan Forler, however, the No. 2L did not report the scales and was unfortunately disqualified, putting Kyle Bellm to fifth officially. Joe B. Miller from 11th crossed sixth with Johnny Herrera coming from 12th to finish seventh. Blake Hahn was eighth with Dustin Adams and Matt Covington making up the top-ten.

Bringing 28 drivers to the St. Francois County Raceway, four Heat Races went to Sam Hafertepe, Jr., Kyle Bellm, Dustin Adams, and Wayne Johnson. Suffering engine woes prior to Hot Laps, Seth Bergman found his way into the B-Main where the No. 23 would go on to win. One provisional was awarded based on Regional competition with Danny Thoman earning the spot.

The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented the MAVTV Motorsports Network returns to competition on Sunday, August 21 at the Missouri State Fair Speedway for the $15,000 to win High Roller Classic. Racing at the "Historic Half Mile" gets underway at 7:00 P.M. (CDT).

Mother Nature Sweeps ASCS Gulf South Weekend
KILGORE, Texas (August 19, 2016) Mother Nature wins again with the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region presented by Southern Trailer Works. With heavy rain already claiming Friday night at the Heart O' Texas Speedway, events at the Lone Star Speedway in Kilgore, Texas on Saturday, August 20 have now been called off due to continued wet weather.

Press from the Lone Star Speedway stated, "The ASCS Gulf South Sprint Cars are rained out, along with the complete racing program, for Saturday, August 20. No racing will take place at Lone Star Speedway this weekend in any division. We have received too much rain to dry out - especially since there is little to no Sun drying time forecast between now and then."

With the weekend washout, this leaves only two nights remaining on the 2016 lineup for the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region presented by Southern Trailer Works.

Saturday, September 3 will see action at Battleground Speedway in Highlands, Texas. The season will wrap up on Sunday, September 4 at the Golden Triangle Raceway Park in Beaumont, Texas.

Both night will offer teams $3,000 to win, $310 to start A-Features with a $1,000 bonus to sweep the weekend thanks to Challenger Drilling and Cooper Racing.

The ASCS Gulf South Region is powered by: Griffith Truck and Equipment, Southern Trailer Works, Momentum Suspension Systems, All Star Auto Reconditioning, LLC, Waco Metals, Lawrence Towing, Carl and J.J.

Lucas Oil ASCS National Back On Track With Missouri Double

TULSA, Okla. (August 12, 2016) A new venue, and a trip to the Fair has teams on the road to Missouri as the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network invades the St. Francois County Raceway in Farmington, Mo. for the first time on Saturday, August 20, followed by the second round of the Lucas Oil Triple Crown, the $15,000 to win High Roller Classic at the Missouri State Fair Speedway in Sedalia on Sunday, August 21.

Slated to be the 16th track in the "Show Me State" to see action with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Saturday's showdown atop St. Francois clay will be the 83rd time the National Tour has scattered Missouri soil.

Saturday's appearance by the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour is not only the series inaugural event at the Missouri oval, but is also inaugural "Dean Adams Classic". A long time figure at the St. Francois County Raceway, the Adams family has seen multiple generations in action at the St. Francois County Raceway with grandson, Dustin Adams, currently carrying on the family name.

Seeing National Tour competition for the first time on May 28, 1995, the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour has seen action at the Missouri half-mile 16 times. The most recent trip was during the 2016 ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek on June 17 where Brad Loyet topped the field. The second year for the High Roller Classic, Aaron Reutzel out dueled Brian Brown in 2015 for the top prize.

The 2016 edition is the second leg of the Lucas Oil Triple Crown. As the winner of the Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals, Sammy Swindell is in the running for a $50,000 bonus if he can add the High Roller Classic and the Hockett McMillin Memorial to his list of victories in 2016.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. leads National Tour standings going into the weekend with a 115 point advantage over Johnny Herrera. Third continues to be held by Blake Hahn. While Hahn tails the lead by 360 points, he's still within the grasp of Seth Bergman who is 56 points behind.

While everyone chases the top, the race throughout the top-eight is still very close with fourth through eighth only separated by 50 markers. Wayne Johnson currently sits fifth with Logan Forler sixth. Aaron Reutzel and Matt Covington make up the top-eight. Kyle Bellm and Josh Baughman complete the top-ten in tour standings.

Co-Sanctioned with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps, Jonathan Cornell has amassed a 332 point buffer over the field with Evan Martin leading the chase to catch the No. 28. Danny Thoman, Cody Baker, and Austin Alumbaugh make up the top-five.

Saturday, August 20 at St. Francois County Raceway will get underway with Hot Laps at 6:00 P.M. (CDT). Support Classes will include Modifieds, B-Mods, and Super Streets. Admission is $15 for adults with kids 12 and under admitted free into the Grandstands. St. Francois County Raceway is located at 4763 E. Woodlawn Dr. Farmington, Mo. 63640. For more information on St. Francois County Raceway, log onto http://www.sfcraceway.com.

Sunday, August 21 will see the High Roller Classic going green with racing at 7:00 P.M. (CDT). Admission is $23 for adults. The Sunday spectacular will also include the ULMA Late Models. As a part of the Missouri State Fair, Sunday is Half Price Day for the Fair. Prices for the Fair can be found at http://www.mostatefair.com/buy-tickets/gate-admission-advance-savings.

Brodix ASCS Frontier Headlining Black Hills Speedway and Gillette Thunder Speedway
TULSA, Okla. (August 9, 2016) Taking on two nights in Wyoming this past weekend, the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region will split their time between Wyoming and South Dakota this weekend with stops at the Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, S.D. on Friday, August 12 and Gillette Thunder Speedway in Gillette, Wy. on Saturday, August 13.

The season's second trip to the Black Hills Speedway, the first visit was a two night affair with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, which saw New Mexico's Johnny Herrera sweep the weekend.

The final appearance for the American Sprint Car Series to the South Dakota oval in 2016, the last time an ASCS Region headlined events at the Black Hills Speedway was during the days of the ASCS Rocky Mountain Region, with Wyoming's Darrell Brink earning his only ASCS sanctioned victory on August 7, 2009.

While the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour has seen action recently at the Gillette Thunder Speedway, like Black Hills, it has been a few years since the regions were the headline with the Rocky Mountain Region last visiting on August 29, 2009. That final visit saw South Dakota's Ned Powers earning his third and final ASCS Regional triumph.

Looking to write a new chapter in the ASCS History Books, the ASCS Frontier Region is led by Canada's Skylar Gee going into the weekend showdown. Gee holds a 101 point advantage following his fourth win in as many races with the Frontier Region. The four race streak is a new record for the Frontier Region. Previously, the most consecutive race wins was three with J.J. Hickle taking a trio in 2015. Joe Ramaker grabbed three straight on two occasions in 2013.

With a total of five wins to his name in 2016, Gee is being chased by South Dakota's D.J. Brink with Montana's David Hoiness holding third, 137 points back. Trever Kirkland and Damon McCune currently make up the top-five in tour standings. Jeremy McCune, Kelly Miller, Ben Holmberg, Nate Maxwell, and Shad Peterson make up the top-ten.

Friday, August 12 at the Black Hills Speedway opens at 5:30 P.M. with racing at 7:05 P.M. (MDT). For more information on the Black Hills Speedway, visit them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Black-Hills-Speedway-290392857705301/?fref=ts.

Saturday, August 13 at the Gillette Thunder Speedway will get underway at 7:00 P.M. and is presented by Powder River Energy and Metz Beverage. Late Models will also be a part of the Saturday showdown. For more information on the Gillette Thunder Speedway, log onto https://www.facebook.com/gillettethunderspeedway.gts/?fref=ts

Sammy Swindell Wins the 26th Annual Knoxville 360 Nationals

Bryan Hulbert / Bill Wright KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 6, 2016) - For the second time in Knoxville Raceway history, a driver has added the 360cid and 410cid Nationals Championship to their Trophy Case as Sammy Swindell parked the A.G. Rains / Acme Graphix No. 3s in Victory Lane to claim the $15,000 top prize in the 26th annual Arnold Motor Supply ASCS 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank.
Joining Danny Lasoski as the only other driver to win both crown jewel events at the Marion County oval, Swindell is the fourteenth different winner of the 360 Nationals since 1991. The win is also the first as a car owner for West Memphis, Arkansas native, A.G. Rains.

"Praise the Lord, I've just been so blessed here lately with things going a lot of different directions," said Sammy in Victory Lane after his fifth career 360 win at Knoxville. "I'm still out here doing this, getting to do what I love to do driving these cars and they gave me a perfect car tonight. All the things we did yesterday, they were all right. We hit it on the head and I couldn't ask for anything any better."
"When I was on the bottom there, I thought I was okay there. Then Clint [Garner] got around, and I just had to wait for my turn to get a shot and see where he was good at, and where he wasn't to make my move; but the car just got better and better throughout the race."
Taking off from the front row, Swindell took off into the race lead with Clint Garner, quickly taking over the point on the second lap. Stalked by the Acme Graphix No. 3s, the pair rolled top and bottom on the Knoxville Raceway with Swindell finally able to reclaim the lead on Lap nine.
The wily veteran began distancing himself from the current Knoxville 360cid point's leader as the race through the top-five heated up, with Lasoski up to third and closing. Taking over the runner-up spot on the 13th trip around the half-mile, the 1995 winner of the 360cid Nationals came to Swindell's back bumper as the caution flew on Lap 16 for Josh Baughman whose engine expired.
On the restart, the mover was Brian Brown. After fading to ninth early on, the FVP/Casey's General Store No. 21 was back up to fourth. Stealing away third on Lap 20, the pass for the runner-up spot on Lap 22 would be Brown's last pass of the night as the engine let go under the bonnet of the No. 21. That nearly wadded up Lasoski who barely got the Mark Burch No. 1m turned down the track.
Setting up a three lap dash to the finish, Lasoski got close but was never close enough as Swindell finished 1.078 seconds ahead of "The Dude".
Challenged by Dusty Zomer on the final restart, Clint Garner rebounded to hold onto third with Terry McCarl coming from eighth to fourth. Ian Madsen from 14th came up to complete the top-five in the last corner.
Challenging for the third spot on the restart, Dusty Zomer faded to sixth with Jack Dover advancing twelve spots as the night's Hard Charger. Friday's preliminary A-Feature winner, Jamie Veal crossed eighth, with Brooke Tatnell and Tony Shilling making up the top ten.
Saturday night began with E-Feature competition. Colby Copeland grabbing that win. The night's D-Feature was topped by Billy Butler after race winner, Tim Shaffer, was disqualified for the Wickerbill being too tall on the No. 49x. Sam Hafertepe, Jr. was the winner in the C-Feature. In the first three feature events, Colby Copeland and Logan Forler were able to advance from the E to the C. Forler was a DNF in the C, with Copeland finishing 15th. Jack Dover was able to grab the B-Feature.
The next event for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will be the debut for the National Tour at the St. Francois County Raceway in Farmington, Mo. on Saturday, August 20, followed by the $15,000 to win, second annual High Roller Classic at the Missouri State Fair Speedway in Sedalia, Mo. on Sunday, August 21.

Jamie Veal Breaks Through on Night Two of the 360 Nationals!

Bryan Hulbert / Bill Wright KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 5, 2016) He may have lead start to finish, but it was a thriller of an A-Feature at the Knoxville Raceway as Australia's Jamie Veal found Victory Lane for the first time in his career at the famed half-mile; winning night two of the 26th annual Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank.

Veal's first Knoxville Raceway victory also goes down as his first with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, making Jamie the 135th overall winner in Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition, and 13th on the season.
"All those starts helped me heaps. I got the jump there three or four times but I got a bit nervous those last few go-rounds with [Brian] Brown picking up a few, and [Clint] Garner picking up a few there, so it didn't leave much buffer," said Jamie on his victory at the famed half-mile. "Their experience around here is second to none, but I can't thank this Indy Race Parts team enough to give me to me the opportunity to race here."
Asked about his progression through the season at the Knoxville Raceway, Veal commented, "We've had a good car here the past three or four times here, and it's good to finally get a win at Knoxville, especially during the 360 Nationals, so we'll just go from here."
Three times to get the race rolling, Veal was able to get the jump all three times over the GoMuddy.com No 1H of Dale Blaney. Moving away from the field, Veal built a comfortable two second advantage before the caution flew on Lap 12 for Matt Moro. Prior to the caution, the race on the track was for fourth as Brian Brown, Davey Heskin, and Clint Garner attached the position.
Taking over the show position on the restart from Brooke Tatnell, the Casey's General Store/FVP No. 21 of Brian Brown set sights on Dale Blaney for second. Diving low into the third turn, Brown broke loose from the bottom, sliding Nerf bar to left rear on Blaney, with both somehow able to roll away.
Caution with 13 laps complete, the cast of challengers continued their march to the front as the Midwest Excavating No. 40 of Clint Garner set sights on Brown for the runner-up spot.
With everyone still chasing Jamie Veal, the bottom side worked to Garner's favor as the night's quick timer rolled to second on the final lap. Running down Jamie Veal into the final two turns, the driver of the Indy Race Parts No. 71 would not be denied; crossing 0.435 seconds ahead of the current Knoxville Raceway 360 points' leader.
Brian Brown crossed third after starting fifth with Dusty Zomer coming home fourth. After challenging for the lead early, Dale Blaney slipped back to complete the top-five. Brooke Tatnell finished sixth with Jack Dover coming from 14th to seventh. Hard Charging from 20th, Johnny Herrera advanced to finish eighth with Davey Heskin winding up ninth. Tasker Phillips from 21st completed the top-ten.
Quick time went to Clint Garner on Friday night with a time of 16.017 seconds. Five Heat races were topped by Don Droud, Jr., Calvin Landis, Rager Phillips, Dale Blaney, and Jamie Veal. C-Feature honors went to John Schulz. The night's B-Main was topped by Tasker Phillips.
The Friday night program saw 52 drivers checking in, bringing this year's total to 93 competitors. With points tallied through the two preliminary nights, Clint Garner, with 492 points, has earned the pole in Saturday's $15,000 to win feature event. He will share the front row with fellow South Dakota driver, Justin Henderson, who tallied 481 markers.

Jamie Ball Leads It All to Win Night One of the 360 Knoxville Nationals

Bryan Hulbert and Bill Wright - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 4, 2016) For the third time in his career at the Knoxville Raceway, Jamie Ball wheeled his J.J. Kane Auctioneers No. 5J around the Marion County half-mile perfectly for 20 laps for victory on night one of the 26th annual Arnold Motor Supply ASCS 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank.

Timing in 13th, Ball was able to run to the final transfer in the third Heat Race, setting Jamie on the pole of Thursday's preliminary A-Feature.

"I'd rather be lucky that good any day," chuckled Jamie when asked about his night and the way everything shook out. "Our qualifying numbers lacked a little bit because of a bad draw, but these guys are the best here. I'd put them up against anyone. We are so prepared, you know, you win races in the shop and our hours of hard work show it, and I know our wives can attest that we've put a lot of work into this."

Ball's first Preliminary Night victory in the $15,000 to win Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank, the win is also the Iowa native's first with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, making Jamie the 134th different winner in National Tour competition.

Outdueling Bryan Clauson twice on the start following a red for Kade Higday, the No. 5J was challenged the first couple before starting to pull away only to see a caution on the third round as Nate Van Haaften slowed off the fourth turn.

With Clauson in tow on the restart, Ball built his advantage quickly as Clauson worked to hold off the No. 17x of Josh Baughman, who eventually worked to the runner-up spot on Lap 5. Stalking Jamie Ball as the pair approached slower traffic, the gap closed very little as the No. 5J weaved through the back-markers.

Shuffling the remainder of the top-five as the race worked past the half-way point, the race on the track brewed for second as Sammy Swindell wheeled the Acme Graphix No. 3s around Baughman on the sixteenth lap.

Closing slightly on Jamie, laps would run out as the No. 5j crossed 1.533 seconds ahead of Sammy Swindell.

Josh Baughman held on for third with Terry McCarl grabbing the fourth spot. Having to advance out of the B-Feature, Danny Lasoski rocketed from 21st to complete the top-five in the Parker Burch Motorsports No. 1m.

Ian Madsen from ninth came to sixth with Tony Shilling seventh. After contending for the lead early, Bryan Clauson slipped to an eighth place run with Justin Henderson and Ryan Giles making up the top-ten.

In terms of points following Thursday's opener, Justin Henderson sits atop the points with 481. Sammy Swindell and Tony Shilling sit at 480 each with the nod going to Swindell had a better finish in the A main. Josh Baughman in fourth in standings with 479 points followed by Danny Lasoski with 476 to complete the top-five.

Lorne Wofford Fends Off Carney For ASCS Southwest Win in Las Cruces

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (July 30, 2016) In an exciting display of "win it or wear it", New Mexico's Lorne Wofford held off the hard charging No. 224 of John Carney II in the closing laps for his first Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region victory of the 2016 season at the Southern New Mexico Speedway in Las Cruces, N.M. The win is Wofford's eighth overall with the Southwest Region and was worth $2,000 thanks to Consolidated Solar Technology.

Leading the opening two circuits, Wofford relinquished the top-spot for current ASCS Southwest Regional point's leader, Rick Ziehl. Trailing the No. 20z until Lap 13, Wofford regained the top spot with John Carney II not far behind after starting seventh in the Steward No. 224. Catching Wofford on Lap 18, the slide cometh as Carney dove the bottom of the first turn. Keeping the slide job as tight as possible, Wofford had other things in mind as the wily veteran set up the bump and run; moving his MTS No. 18 back to the top spot where he would remain for the remainder of the night's 25 lap affair. Carney would settle for second with Arizona's Colton Hardy third. After leading early on, Rick Ziehl slipped to a fourth place finish with Wes Wofford coming from 12th to complete the top-five. Bob Ream, Jr. was sixth with James Mosher seventh. Don Grable from 14th made it to eighth with Royal Jones and C.J. Hulsey making up the top-ten.

Brian Brown Tops ASCS Warriors At Missouri State Fair Speedway

SEDALIA, Mo. (July 28, 2016) Rolling into Sedalia, Mo. to settle a grudge, Brian Brown let everyone know who the top dog was as the FVP / Casey’s General Store No. 21 returned to Victory Lane with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps at the Missouri State Fair Speedway.

Topping the night’s Grudge Match over uncle, Danny Lasoski, the Grain Valley, Mo. native gridded the A-Feature third. Trailing Jonathan Cornell, the Kiowa Line Builders No. 28 looked to be well his way to victory No. 6 on the season with the Warrior Region, but it was not meant to be as the engine let go after leading the first 11 laps.

With Brown inheriting the lead, the restart saw Danny Lasoski on his back bumper, but Brown would not be denied victory at the “Historic Half-Mile”, which counts as Brown’s 44th overall with the ASCS Warrior Region.

Lasoski held on to a runner-up finish with Corey Nelson third. Austin Alumbaugh crossed fourth with Taylor Walton making up the top-five. Evan Martin was sixth with Tyler Blank, Matt Close, Scott Comstock, and Tony Bruce, Jr. completing the top-ten.

The Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps hits the track again with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network at the St. Francois County Raceway in Farmington, Mo. on Saturday, August 20. The weekend ends out with the $15,000 to win High Roller Classic at Missouri State Fair Speedway in Sedalia on Sunday, August 21.

Blake Hahn Parks It At Park Jefferson Speedway With Lucas Oil ASCS

N. SIOUX CITY, S.D. (July 28, 2016) A bone slick race track and traffic was the way the canvas teams had to work with on Thursday night as Blake Hahn capitalized on a mistake by Josh Baughman in slower traffic to garner his third Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network victory of the month.

Drawing outside of the front row in Thursday’s feature event, Hahn would remain runner-up as Josh Baughman took off into the lead.

Slowed one time in 25 laps for Wayne Johnson and Cory Eliason, who tangled in turn-two, the leaders started approaching slower traffic with 12 laps complete. Rolling bottom side on the Park Jefferson Speedway, the pair raced to the back bumper of Justin Jacobsma.

Unable to work under the No. 10j in time, Baughman slipped off the low line, leaving the door wide open for Hahn to capitalize for the lead on the fourteenth lap.Commenting on the pass, Hahn stated, “Baughman we really good early on, and actually, he was good everywhere, but a lapped car got him out of his rhythm just enough for us to capitalize.”

Thanking family, crew, sponsors, and the fans, Hahn’s win at the Park Jefferson Speedway is his fourth overall with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

Crossing silver, Josh Baughman was pleased, but disappointed with the runner-up performance.

“It’s a great finish, but you know it’s bad when you run second and you’re not happy about it. I felt like we gave that one away in lapped traffic but congrats to Blake,” said Baughman. “These guys bust their butts every day to give me a good car and we’re rolling pretty good going into the biggest month of the year here so I have to thank them.”

Stalking the pair at the front the entire race, Johnny Herrera recorded his third consecutive podium finish. Within striking distance at one point, things never lined up enough for the No. 45x to pounce.

“At one point when Josh was leading there, we were all right there with Blake just waiting for him to make a mistake but we were all really about the same and then I think he made one, but then I made one and then Josh did, but I was just never close enough to really capitalize and once Blake got in to clean air, he was able to just pick his line and he was gone.”

Race No. 107 on the season for Bryan Clauson, the Elk Grove Ford No. 17w crossed fourth with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. posting his 18th top five of the season with the National Tour in the Hwy. 79 Collision No. 15h. From ninth, Aaron Reutzel crossed sixth in the B.C. Fundz No. 87 with Jack Dover him trailing from 10th. Ian Madsen’s No. 18 was eighth followed by Seth Bergman ninth and Matt Covington tenth.

A pair of Heat Races were contested on Thursday night with Ian Madsen and Bryan Clauson picking up wins. No provisionals were needed.

The Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network returns to action on Sunday, July 31 at Badlands Motor Speedway in Brandon, S.D. for a $10,000 to win showdown at the three-eighths mile oval. Tickets can be purchased by Badlands Pawn as well as at the track.

Missouri State Fair Speedway Lights Up Thursday Night With The ASCS Warrior Region
TULSA, Okla. (July 26, 2016) A nice tune up for Missouri teams and fans for the High Roller Classic on Sunday, August 21, the Missouri State Fair Speedway will see a Night of Stars at the "Historic Half-Mile" on Thursday, July 28 as the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps along with Modifieds make their way to Sedalia, Mo.

Presented by Central Bank and Subway, the Thursday night spectacular will feature not only a complete night of racing, but will also settle a burning question. Who is faster? For a best two out of three faceoff, Brian Brown and Danny Lasoski will go head-to-head to see who will claim the family honor.

Along with two of Missouri's most noted Sprint Car names, one of racing's biggest names will also be on hand as Kenny Schrader will bring his Federated Auto Parks No. 9 to do battle with the Modifieds.

Park Jefferson Int. Speedway Next In Line For Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour

TULSA, Okla. (July 25, 2016) The road to Knoxville is a little shorter as the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network heads for the southeastern corner of South Dakota for a little Thursday Night Thunder this week.

Thursday, July 28, the Park Jefferson International Speedway, located just south of Jefferson, S.D. will welcome the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network for the first time with the "Sioux City Summer Slidefest" thanks in part to Pepsi.

A little history on the South Dakota oval, before the sound of horsepower headlined events at Park Jefferson, it was the sound of Horses as the facility has been a Horse Track until closing in 1982. Purchased by Ted Carlson in 1984, grandstands were trucked in from University of Minnesota football field and track reshaped to a four-tenths mile, high-banked oval. Closing in 2012, the track was purchased by Adam Adamson in February, 2014 and re-opened in June of that year.

While this Thursday's trip to the Park Jefferson International Speedway is the first for the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, the track has seen ASCS competition as the former Speedway Motors ASCS Midwest Region saw laps first in 2005 with Brian Brown claiming the top spot in the July 4 showdown. Jason Johnson took the top podium step on June 15, 2006.

Returning to Park Jefferson in 2014, the August visit made history as Brandon, South Dakota's Isaac Schreurs piloted his No. 612 machine to victory on August 16. Besting a field of 21, Schreurs, who was left paralyzed at the age of 14 following a Motocross accident, became the first paraplegic to win a major sprint car race at the age of 21.

With a strong contingent of area talent expected for this Thursday's visit to Park Jefferson International Speedway, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. looks to continue his dominance of the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. Currently leading with a 134 point advantage over Johnny Herrera in tour standings, the New Mexico native was able to chip away at some of that advantage at this past weekend's "Rushmore Rumble" which saw Herrera sweeping the two day affair to bring his deficit down from 162 markers.

Holding third in standings is Blake Hahn with Wayne Johnson closing back in to try and reclaim the position. Johnson, who had a mixed weekend in Rapid City rebounded from a Friday night DNF to sixth the following night and sits only 47 points behind Hahn who ended the weekend 12th and eighth respectively.

In the mix as well is Logan Forler who completes the top five in tour standings only three points off Wayne.

Making up ground over the month of July, Seth Bergman holds sixth with a chance to crack the top five. Matt Covington holds seventh with Aaron Reutzel eighth. A pair of podiums this past weekend helped close the No. 87 back into climbing contention in tour standings. Rejoining the National Tour at Rapid City, Kyle Bellm has moved to ninth in points with Brad Loyet completing the top-ten.

Thursday, July 28 at the Park Jefferson International Speedway will open at 5:00 P.M. with Hot Laps at 6:45 P.M. (CDT). General Admission is $25 with kids 6-16 getting in for only $10. Children five and under get into the grandstand for free.

Park Jefferson International Speedway is located just south of Jefferson, S.D. off Old U.S. Hwy. 77.

The Clyde Wood Memorial Goes to Jonathan Cornell at Double X Speedway

CALIFORNIA, Mo. (July 24, 2016) He won it before, and he's won it again, Jonathan Cornell is seemingly unstoppable at the Double X Speedway, this time taking the win in the 14th annual Clyde Wood Memorial with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps.
Podium finish No. 10 on the season, the win counts as Cornell's 30th overall triumph with the Missouri based region of the American Sprint Car Series.

No easy task to claim this year's $2,500 top prize, the Kiowa Line Builders No. 28 rolled off eighth in the 22 car field while California's Randy Martin rolled from outside the front row into the lead on the start over Wyatt Burks.
With the race moving into the final stages, Cornell had advanced through the running order with Martin as his next target. The No. 28 raced to the point on the 19th trip around the quarter-mile for victory No. 5 on the season with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps.
When it was all said and done, Randy Martin crossed second with Josh Baughman taking the show position. Tony Bruce, Jr. raced to a fourth place showing with Tyler Blank charging from 16th to complete the top-five.
Jay Russell was sixth, followed by Austin Alumbaugh. From 17th to eighth came Corey Nelson. Evan Martin and Lanny Carpenter made up the top-ten.
Special thanks goes out to Hollywood Blasting and Coatings, Impact Signs, Midwest Speed Shop, and Xtreme Body and Paint and everyone who came to be a part of the 14th annual Clyde Wood Memorial at the Double X Speedway.
The Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps takes on the Missouri State Fair Speedway next on Thursday, July 28. The mid-week affair will serve as a warm up to the $15,000 to win High Roller Classic on Sunday, August 21 at the "Historic Half-Mile".

Johnny Herrera Sweeps the Lucas Oil ASCS Rushmore Rumble

RAPID CITY, S.D. (July 23, 2016) Making it a perfect weekend with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Johnny Herrera made it win No. 4 on the season with a sweep of the Rushmore Rumble at the Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, S.D.

Taking advantage of track position, Herrera commented on the run by saying, “The track got rubber down a little more than last night so I was just trying to keep my stuff straight and just work to them and let them mess up until I heard or saw somebody. I never really did but I still tried to keep a good pace but I knew Sam and those guys were coming.”

Thanking sponsors, family, and crew, Herrera has now won the last three outings at the South Dakota oval with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Herrera has 17 overall victories with the National Tour.

Trailing Kyle Bellm into the first two turns, Herrera stuck the high side of the half-mile; barely making the pass between Bellm’s right rear and the outside concrete. With Sam Hafertepe, Jr. in tow, Herrera began pulling away to a comfortable advantage before hitting slower traffic in the early laps.

Weaving through the back markers, Herrera’s lead was cut in half from nearly three seconds, but the race’s lone caution on Lap 15 brought Hafertepe’s No. 15h to Herrera’s back bumper.

Glued to the MVT No. 45x on the restart, Hafertepe’s advance was stalled as Herrera again began to put car lengths over the Keith Dobbs Motorsports entry.

Back into traffic in the closing rounds, the leaders would have to walk a fine line as the track locked to the bottom groove. With Sam pulling back into contention, the battle went to three as Aaron Reutzel joined the mix in the final laps.

With only a car length at best separating Herrera and Hafertepe on the white flag, it was a matter of when something was going to happen as the pair dashed into heavy slower traffic.

Rounding the fourth turn, the bottom nearly fell out for the top three as the lapped cars they were racing through began scattering. With cars slowing drastically, Herrera threaded the needle to grab the checkered flag as Sam and Aaron scrambled to avoid the traffic that was nearly stopped on the front stretch.

Hafertepe was able to hold onto the runner-up spot despite the mad dash to the finish.

“It was better than last night for sure. We had a pretty good car, just having to battle the first few laps getting around Kyle [Bellm], it hurt us to where we couldn’t get to Johnny as quick as we wanted to. I felt we were a little bit better at the end, but I’m pretty sure he was preserving his tires. Traffic was hectic there, but he drove a smart race but he’s a veteran, so I expect that from him,” said Hafertepe of his 15th podium finish of the 2016 season aboard the Hwy. 79 Collision No. 15h.

With Aaron Reutzel earning the final podium step, the defending National Champion ends the weekend with a pair of podium runs.

“In Hot Laps, we were so good, I didn’t want to change it any but I should have because the track ended up being the same, but we definitely have some momentum coming back. It’s nice to have a good handling car again,” said Reutzel of the race and weekend overall.

After starting on the pole, Kyle Bellm slipped to a fourth place finish, but even so, has moved to ninth in tour standings. Rounding out the top-five was Seth Bergman who advanced forward from the ninth starting spot.

Wayne Johnson rebounded from a DNF on Friday night to sixth after starting 13th. Logan Forler was seventh with Blake Hahn eighth. Matt Covington crossed ninth with D.J. Brink rounding out the top-ten as the highest finishing driver with the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region.

28 drivers took part in Saturday’s portion of the Rushmore Rumble with three Heat Races going to David Hoiness, Blake Hahn, and Seth Bergman. The night’s B-Main went to Ryan Parks. A Regional Provisional was utilized by James Sires.

A pair of South Dakota ovals await the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports with both seeing the National Tour for the first time. Thursday, July 28 will see action at the Park Jefferson International Speedway in Jefferson, S.D. followed by a $10,000 to win showdown at Badlands Speedway in Brandon, S.D. on Sunday, July 31.

Johnny Herrera Claims Black Hills Victory With Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour

RAPID CITY, S.D. (July 22, 2016) For the second year running, Johnny Herrera parked his Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 45x in Victory Lane at the Black Hills Speedway, winning the opening night of the Rushmore Rumble at the South Dakota Half-Mile with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network for this third National Tour triumph of the season.

Herrera's 16th career National Tour victory, the New Mexico native is the first repeat winner in Lucas Oil ASCS competition at the Black Hills Speedway.
Diving the bottom side from the pole position, Skylar Gee kept pace into the first turn, but it was Aaron Reutzel from fourth who hustled the high-side to the lead; only to see the caution displayed before the lap could be completed.
Commenting on the opening lap, Herrera said, "If that caution hadn't come out, who knows how it would have shook out. You know, he got going there again and was good around the top so I went to the middle and slide the top to block his momentum, but he had it right but once that rubber came in, I knew if I would just be patient we'd be alright."
Able to keep his challengers at bay on the ensuing restart, Herrera would hold the point the first two rounds before the Dissolvalloy No. 87 slid his way into the lead. Working top to bottom on the big half-mile, the pair began exchanging slide jobs for the lead with Herrera using traffic to his advantage to reclaim the top spot on the sixth round.
Caution with 16 laps to run for Wayne Johnson, the Oklahoma native would see his night end on the restart as a car in front of him bobbled on the restart.
With a slower car to his advantage on the restart, Herrera rolled away from Reutzel, but was at the back of the field in a matter of laps. Allowing Aaron to close the gap, the Clute, Texas driver mounted one final charge with six laps to run.
Rushing the center of the first turn, Aaron found the No. 45x trapped by slower cars. Pulling even with Johnny through the second turn, Herrera romped the throttle, splitting lapped cars going into the third turn.
"Once we got to those lapped cars, I did't want to run too hard and blow a tire so I was just pacing and making sure we were good enough to get by, but when I saw Aaron make a run there, I knew I had better pick up the pace a little bit."
Able to keep the No. 87 to a runner-up finish, the defending Lucas Oil ASCS Champion ended up crossing 0.580 seconds behind Herrera.
"I told Marty [Breiten] I was going to be a hero and go straight for the fence, and I showed them where to run but after that I was still able to get around them, but I just took the lead a little too early and allowed Johnny to search around and he found the rubber. I was able to get back by him, and I didn't think the rubber was that low and missed it by half a car length and let Johnny back by me," commented Reutzel.
"I had a shot at him later, but the middle got to dirty from the rubber, and just slide across the track and he got back by me and almost let Bellm by, but car wise I feel like we're back where we were last year."
Coming from 10th, Kyle Bellm's return to the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour resulted in a third place finish following several intense battles with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. and Seth Bergman to crack the top-five.
"I wanted to go out west with these guys this year, but it just wasn't in the cards but I got to thank my buddy Cody for coming out there to finish out this swing," commented Bellm who also thanked family and sponsors. "We'll take a podium and try to improve a few spots tomorrow. We were terrible in the Heat Race. I just spun out by myself. I hated that Sam [Hafertepe] got caught up in my mistake there, but we came back and got it on the podium."
Tangled up with Bellm in his Heat Race, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. rushed from seventh to second in the B-Main to transfer to the 18th starting spot. Advancing 14 position, the currentl Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour point's leader crossed fourth to lock into Saturday's championship A-Feature. Debuting a brand new ride to shakedown for Knoxville, Seth Bergman completed the top-five.
Matt Covington from ninth came up to a sixth place finish with Logan Forler charging from 17th to seventh to tie things up for fourth in tour standings with Johnson. After battling early for the lead, Skylar Gee slipped to an eighth place showing with D.J. Brink ninth and Kelly Miller tenth.
With 28 drivers checking in for the opening night of the Rushmore Rumble, four Heat Races went to Aaron Reutzel, Seth Bergman, Wayne Johnson, and Blake Hahn. The B-Feature was topped by Logan Forler. A regional provisional was used by David Hoiness.
The Rushmore Rumble at the Black Hills Speedway continues on Saturday, July 23, 2016 with a Driver Meet and Greet from 11:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. (MDT). Spectator Gates will open at 5:00 P.M. with races getting underway at 7:00 P.M. (MDT).

ASCS Warriors Return To XX Speedway For 14th Annual Clyde Wood Memorial

TULSA, Okla. (July 20, 2016) The Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps will take on the Double X Speedway in California, Mo. this Sunday, July 24 to honor one of Missouri's legendary race officials.
For the 14th year, the track will pay tribute to Clyde L. Wood, who served as the

chief starter at the quarter-mile oval from 1975 until his passing in 2002. A figure in Missouri auto racing for 38 years as a Flagman, Clyde Wood flagged the competition at the Double X Speedway when it was still known as Woody's Speedway.
Defending race winner, and current ASCS Warrior Region point's leader, Jonathan Cornell, enters the weekend with a pair of championship point leads. With a commanding 313 markers over second place in ASCS competition, the Sedalia native also leads the standings in weekly competition at the Double X Speedway. Winning the last four out of five in overall competition, Cornell has racked up 10 overall victories in 2016.
Drawing 33 cars to the $2,500 to win, $300 to start event in 2015, this year's event looks to bring just as many of the Midwest's best as drivers like Tony Bruce, Jr. and Derek Hagar look to unseat Cornell as the champion of the Clyde Wood Memorial which is presented in part this Sunday by Hollywood Blasting and Coatings, Impact Signs, Midwest Speed Shop, and Xtreme Body and Paint.
Looking through tour standings, Evan Martin is currently second with Cody Baker, Danny Thoman, and Austin Alumbaugh making up the top-five. The top-ten rounds out with Tyler Blank, Corey Nelson, Randy Martin, Broc Elliott, and Tyler Thomas.
Sunday, July 24 at the Double X Speedway will open at 1:00 P.M. for Tailgating with Hot Laps getting underway at 7:00 P.M. (CDT). The night's lineup will also include 600cc Micros and Street Stocks. Admission is $15 for adults. For more information on the Double X Speedway, call (573) 796 - 4694 or look for the Double X Speedway on Facebook.
The Warrior Region of the American Sprint Car Series is brought to race fans by Speedway Motors and presented by Impact Signs, Awning, and Wraps.

Lucas Oil ASCS Headed For Black Hills Double in Rapid City
TULSA, Okla. (July 19, 2016) What was once one, became two as the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network returns to competition with the "Rushmore Rumble" at the Black Hill Speedway in Rapid City, S.D. on Friday, July 22 and Saturday, July 23.

Originally a pairing of South Dakota's Black Hills Speedway and Wyoming's Gillette Thunder Speedway, the rodeo in Gillette caused Ed Kirchoff, who promotes both facilities, to move the Wyoming date to Rapid City.

First seeing action with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network in 1998, Oklahoma's Daryn Pittman topped the August 8 event. Returning to the half-mile oval in 2014, Missouri's Brad Loyet added some Black Hills Gold to his pocket. The 2015 stop went to Johnny Herrera who traded wins back and forth with Aaron Reutzel through Montana, Wyoming, and South Dakota.

Pushing closer to the 26th annual Arnold Motor Supply ASCS 360 Knoxville Nationals, the season looks much different than the year before as Sam Hafertepe, Jr. looks to continue his momentum through the "Rushmore Rumble" as the current Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour point's leader has picked up 14 podium finishes in 19 events contested. Going into the South Dakota double header, Sam is on a streak of five consecutive podium appearances to go along with seven straight top-fives and 15 top-tens.

Trailing by 162 markers, Johnny Herrera holds the runner-up spot going into the track that he won at in 2015. Having not finished outside of the top-ten in his last six starts, Herrera has had to fight through engine woes during this year's trip to the Northwest.

Rolling off a pair of wins at the Gallatin Speedway, Blake Hahn enters the weekend the highest he has ever been in Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour standings. Off the lead by 335 points, the battle for the championship may be down to a pair of drivers at this point, but the race to be in the top-five is still very close as Wayne Johnson trails the driver of the No. 52 by only 10 points with Logan Forler on their heels at a 40 point deficit.

Matt Covington, who led the points early on in 2016, has slipped to sixth with Seth Bergman seventh. The pair are only separated by 10 makers going into the weekend. Aaron Reutzel holds eighth. Also a victim of engine woes on the trip to and from the Northwest, Aaron's weekend at the Gallatin Speedway ended early due to a failure under the bonnet of the No. 87. Brad Loyet and Josh Baughman complete the top-ten in tour standings.

Co-Sanctioned with the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region, the top is tied up again as Skyler Gee and Trever Kirkland sit with 569 point each. D.J. Brink holds third with Kelly Miller and David Hoiness completing the top-five in Regional standings.

Friday, July 22 and Saturday, July 23 at the Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, S.D. will open at 5:00 P.M. with races getting underway at 7:00 P.M. (MDT). Admission for the two day "Rushmore Rumble" is $25 per day for adults. Seniors and Military are $20. Kids 6-12 are only $10 and children five and under get into the grandstands for free. More information on the Black Hills Speedway can be found on the track's Facebook page or by calling (605) 786-6476.

With Ziehl up to second as Pettas saw his night end, the No. 20z took over and was chased to the line by Lorne Wofford. Coming from eighth, Stevie Sussex came up to finish third with Lance Norick and Colton Hardy, from 11th, to complete the top-five.

Brandon Hanks Victorious With ASCS Red River At Lawton Speedway

LAWTON, Okla. (July 9, 2016) Slower traffic was the key to success at the Lawton Speedway for Brandon Hanks, as the Tennessee native extended his point lead with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products, topping action at the Lawton Speedway for his second regional triumph of the year.

Hanks' fourth win overall on the 2016 season, the Performance Powder Coating No. 84 rolled off fifth in Saturday's final leg of the 2016 ASCS Sooner Sweep.

Advancing to the front, race leader Mickey Walker, who had led since Lap 1, got caught up in slower traffic, allowing Hanks to take the point on Lap 23.

Giving chase in the closing laps, traffic turned in favor of Walker. Rolling to the white flag, Hanks was held high, giving Walker the run to the bottom, but the move was stopped in its tracks by an infield tire that knocked the D&E Supply No. 2 out of competition.

On the restart, Hanks was able to hold off John Carney II for the win. Carney would cross runner-up with Chance Morton coming from eighth to complete the podium. Brandon Long and Kevin Ramey completed the top-five.

Joe Bob Lee was sixth with ASCS Gulf South regular, Caleb Martin, crossing seventh. T.J. Honkomp was with Kyle Ezell from 16th to ninth. Sterling Hoff completed the top-ten.

The American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products is back in action this weekend with the return of ASCS competition at the Texarkana 67 Speedway in Texarkana, Ark. on Friday, July 15, followed by Superbowl Speedway in Greenville, Texas on Saturday, July 16.

Blake Hahn Sweeps The Lucas Oil ASCS Grizzly Nationals at Gallatin Speedway

BELGRADE, Mont. (July 9, 2016) One win deserves another, as Blake Hahn made it a perfect weekend with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, leading flag to flag in Saturday's championship event to complete the sweep of the Randash Auto Center Grizzly Nationals at the Gallatin Speedway.

Greeted for the second time in Victory Lane by Adam the Grizzly Bear, the win is Hahn's fifth podium appearance of the season and third career victory with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

(ASCS / Bryan Hulbert Photo)

A wing walk with 'Shooter McGavin' flair, Hahn summarized the weekend's events in nearly speechless terms, saying simply "wow, just wow" of his first weekend sweep with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. The back-to-back wins also moved Hahn from fifth to third in driver standings.

"I've got to thank my Dad and Dalton. They've had this car dialed in the last couple weeks, we just hadn't had luck on our side but it feels good to be here in Victory Lane. It really makes the hard work worthwhile but like I said yesterday, I have to thank all these fans for coming out and supporting us."

Jumping to the lead though the first two turns, the battle for second saw Sam Hafertepe, Jr. trading slide jobs with Wayne Johnson over the opening laps with Sam gaining the upper hand. In a case of Déjà vu, Hafertepe again chased the Lucas Oil / CSR Garage No. 52 around the Montana quarter-mile.

Caution on the third round, the leaders rolled the cushion with Hahn already pulling his advantage. With the tail of the field rapidly approaching, the fastest line began to shift down the track. With traffic in play before Lap 10, rubber began setting in; making lapped traffic a challenge as cars would fan out off the turns, effectively blocking the leader's advance. Despite the challenge, Hahn was still able to pull away from the Keith Dobbs Motorsports No. 15h.

Opening his advantage to over five seconds, the caution flew again on Lap 24 for Johnny Herrera who lost a tire while running seventh. Herrera's crew was able to change the tire before the field returned to green.

Caution again on Lap 27, a single lapped car sat between Hahn and Hafertepe. Clearing the slower machine, Hafertepe ran valiantly, but would come up short as the No. 15h crossed 1.750 seconds behind Hahn's No. 52.

"The key for Blake tonight was getting out front early, and when he got in the rubber, he took off and I knew once it laid rubber, we were just going to conserve our tires. He was running pretty hard, and if he popped one, that would put us in the lead so I was trying to race smart and make good decisions on the racecar and it worked out. We finished the race and didn't pop a tire," commented Hafertepe of his 14th podium appearance of the season.

Making it an identical podium to Friday night, Matt Covington grabbed the third spot on the closing lap as Wayne Johnson shredded his right rear on the white flag lap.

With tread to spare, Covington commented that he was just taking it as easy as possible to conserve his tires, "I went really conservative, especially when I saw a couple guys popping tires. I figured I was next because the car was getting really heavy on that right side a couple times on the restarts."

"I really wanted that one. Maybe had there been a little more to lean on those first couple of laps, then I could have gotten out front and found the rubber, but it just wasn't meant to be tonight but anytime you can finish on the podium, it's a great deal."

From 12th, Seth Bergman rolled to a fourth place finish. After returning to the racing surface from the work area with six laps to run, Johnny Herrera laid waste to his Hoosiers, coming from the back of the field in a haze of blue smoke to complete the top-five.

South Dakota's D.J. Brink came from 11th to sixth with Skylar Gee seventh. Trever Kirkland crossed eighth with David Hoiness coming from 17th to ninth. Early, Hoiness charged from 11th to win the night's B-Main. Despite the shredded tire on the right rear of the City Vending No. 2c, Wayne Johnson brought home is 14th top-ten finish of the season.

Three Heat Races were topped by Aaron Reutzel, Wayne Johnson, and Johnny Herrera. The B-Main went to David Hoiness. A Promoter's Provisional was awarded to Josh Ostermiller.

The Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network returns to action on Friday, July 22 an Saturday, July 23 with the "Rushmore Rumble" at Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, S.D.

Blake Hahn Wins Night 1 of the Lucas Oil ASCS Grizzly Nationals

BELGRADE, Mont. (July 8, 2016) While Mother Nature tried to rain on Blake Hahn's parade, the skies dried and Blake Hahn led start to finish for his first Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network A-Feature win of 2016.

Topping the opening night of the Randash Auto Center Grizzly Nationals, Hahn was greeted in Victory Lane by the race's mascot, a 900lbs Grizzly Bear named Adam who presented Blake his trophy.

On the subject of the Bear, Hahn said simply, "I don't know what to say about the Bear other than it's awesome. Talk about a once in a lifetime experience."

"Oh man, I just have to thank these fans for sticking it out and staying for this great race," said Hahn to a packed house at the Gallatin Speedway who stayed through three rain delays. "We love racing up here. These tracks are really racey and just seem to fit our driving style. We were really excited to come here. This track just looked really fun, and it was fun."

Having to all be rebuild the car after the Fred Brownfield Classic, Hahn gave a lot of praise to his crew.

"We basically changed everything but the engine in the car. We changed so much, I'm not sure what fixed it, but it's fixed for now and I just have to thank Dalton and my Dad for busting their butt and staying out here."

Winning the dash into the first turns, Hahn found traffic by Lap 6, giving the No. 15h a shot at the lead, only to see it squashed by a caution on Lap 10.

On Hahn's back bumper on the restart, the pair again raced into slower traffic in a matter of laps. With slower cars stacked three wide, the traffic jam allowed Wayne Johnson to make it a three dog fight for the lead. Weaving through traffic, the caution flew again Lap 17 for a car spun in the second turn.

Taking the final green of the feature event, Hahn was able to get some breathing room, but with two to go, the No. 52 shoved through the cushion in turn four. Able to recover, the bobble brought Hafertepe to Hahn's back bumper, but it wasn't enough as Blake crossed 0.312 seconds ahead of the No. 15h.

"We blew a motor there before Hot Laps, and barely made it out of the Heat so to come from where we came from with all the bad things we had going there, it's great to get out here on the front stretch with a top-three finish," said Hafertepe of his 13th podium finish of the season. "We didn't have enough time to get the Motor dialed in like we wanted and couldn't take off on those starts, and that's where Blake got me."

Working to third on the final restart, Matt Covington crossed third in the A-Rock Material No. 95.

"We were in a tough spot having to get out of the last lock in spot," commented Covington who worked third with five to go. "I have to thank Tyler Tessemaker, we brought him on this week, and he did a great job on the car, and fell like I did a okay job driving it. Picked the wrong spot a few times in lapped traffic, but that's just how it goes sometimes but the track was excellent. Even though the rain slowed us down, it came out great."

Making the pass in the closing laps, Logan Forler took the final transfer into Saturday's championship A-Feature. In the hunt for the win before the last caution, Wayne Johnson slipped back to fifth as the right rear struggled to hold air.

Seth Bergman rolled to a sixth place finish with Kelly Miller scoring the highest finish for the drivers of the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region. Johnny Herrera moved from 13th to eighth with Trever Krikland hard charging eight spots to ninth. Canada's Skylar Gee completed the top-ten.

The opening night of the Randash Auto Center Grizzly Nationals saw 29 drivers check in. Four Heat Races went to Seth Bergman, Blake Hahn, Aaron Reutzel, and Logan Forler. The night's B-Feature went to Trever Kirkland. No Provisionals were utilized.

The Randash Auto Center Grizzly National continues on Saturday, July 9 with racing getting underway at 7:00 P.M. (MDT). For continued updates on the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, log onto http://www.ascsracing.com.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Sweeps The Lucas Oil ASCS Brownfield Classic at Grays Harbor Raceway

 ELMA, Wash. (July 2, 2016) Sam Hafertepe, Jr. made it a perfect weekend at the Grays Harbor Raceway, winning the finale of the 2nd annual Fred Brownfield Classic with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

"I don't even know what to say anymore. It's awesome," said Hafertepe of his sixth Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour win of the season.

"To get out to the lead like we did, I knew Wayne [Johnson] was going to be tough. He was tough last night too. He gets around here pretty good so I knew he'd try the bottom on me and would be moving around searching but when I got out front, I got pretty comfortable and didn't want to really push it to hard, just try to catch the lapped cars at the right time and squeeze past one of them and not burn my tires off because it started laying rubber there on entry. I just tried to drive a smart race and try not to make any mistakes."

Rolling third on the A-Feature, Hafertepe wasted no time taking the race for the lead three-wide through the opening turn. Rolling the bottom line to the race lead, Sam kept the City Vending No. 2c of Wayne Johnson at a consistent one second disadvantage for most of the race.

Working through slower traffic in the later portions of the feature, Johnson was able to close the gap to about 12 car lengths, but was never able to capitalize.

Asked if a little more time in slower traffic would have made a difference, Wayne replied, "I don't know. Sam did a really good job getting through traffic. I think maybe 10 different times in the race, we got running better than he did and the other 10 times, he was better than us so we were pretty even. The boys said our lap times were about the same, it's just all about track position. On the start I screwed up and ran the top and probably should have squeezed Johnny a little bit more getting into one."

Crossing 1.116 seconds behind the Hwy. 79 Collision No, 15h, Johnson was lucky to even finish the A-Main.

"My engine laid down there at the finish. In fact, it died pulling up here so I'm not sure what happened. I thought I ran out of fuel, but they said it's got plenty. We just need to look at it. It was still running but like maybe broke a Spark Plug or a fuel line came apart. It wasn't running like it blew up, just something going on."

Completing the repeat of Friday's podium, New Mexico's Johnny Herrera placed the Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 45x third. Battling most of the race with California's Cory Eliason, Herrera was able to get some breathing room in the closing laps.

"There were a few guys that were rolling really well there at the start of the race. The No. 5 car and I think there was another one there, I think the No. 0j car and they were running really well early in the race, and really, I was just trying to keep up. My car wasn't very good but we'll take a third place again with the racecar I gave myself."

Asked if the car improved in the closing laps as rubber started going down, as he was able to distance himself from the No. 5h, Johnny replied, "Even then we weren't very good. We just about blew through the rubber where those other guys could run pretty much wide open, I was having to tiptoe to keep my car underneath me."

In Cory Eliason's second Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour start, the Van Dyke Motorsports No. 5h wheeled to a fourth place finish after starting eighth, with Washington's Colton Heath completing the top.

Steven Tiner came from the 12th starting spot to sixth with Jason Solwold taking advantage of a Promoter's Provisional with a run from 23rd to seventh. Travis Jacobson was eighth with Jay Cole slipping back to night after battling in the top-five. From 16th, Blake Hahn came up the complete the top-ten.

Overall, 40 drivers made the trip to the Grays Harbor Raceway for the Fred Brownfield Classic. With four drivers locked in from Friday, 36 drivers ran Heats with wins going to Cory Eliason, Jay Cole, Travis Jacobson, and Colton Heath. B-Mains went to Evan Margeson and Travis Rilat.

The Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network returns to competition at the Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont. for the Grizzly Nationals on Friday, July 8 and Saturday, July 9.

Hafertepe Adds Grays Harbor Raceway To Win List With Lucas Oil ASCS
ELMA, Wash (July 1, 2016) When you're hot, you're hot and right now, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. is smoking the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network as the Sunnyvale, Texas native picked up his fifth National Tour win of the 2016 season on night one of the second annual Fred Brownfield Classic.

Sam's first National Tour triumph at the Grays Harbor Raceway, and 11th podium in 16 National Tour A-Mains this season, the Keith Dobbs Motorsports No. 15h rolled from fourth in Friday's A-Feature.

Riding third as Johnny Herrera and Wayne Johnson occupied the top two positions; the leaders picked off the fifth round with Herrera slipping over the cushion in turns one and two. Slipping the bottom in the No. 2c, Johnson opened the door wide for Hafertepe, as the battle went three wide with the advantage going to Sam Hafertepe, Jr.

"This is pretty awesome. To start there in the fourth spot, you know, Wayne and Johnny were pretty tough early so we were just trying to run where they weren't and Johnny just went a little high off of two, and it was a little tough to navigate that corner, but that opened the door for me especially when Wayne kind of missed the bottom too," said Hafertepe of the victory.

"That got us out in front and I knew once we got to clean air and got the wing back a little bit, we were going to be okay. The car was really good."

Able to keep Wayne Johnson at bay on several restarts, the field found slower traffic in the closing laps, but it was in short lived as the caution flew on Lap 18. Strong on the bottom line during restarts, Wayne Johnson rolled nearly even with Hafertepe several times, but would end up settling for a second place showing in the City Vending No. 2c.

"You know, hats off to Sam on those guys. They've been rolling here lately. Just to be on the same lap as those guys here as bad as we've been lately is great," said Wayne of his runner up finish.

"The car's been working good. Buddy, Ken, and Slip have been working their butts off. We changed cars here about a month ago and this car seems to be way better than the other one. We're just trying to get her dialed in, but I don't feel like we needed that caution there with about six or seven to go. I thought we had something for Sam there."

Wayne's runner-up finished shot him from seventh in the standings to fourth.

Dropping back to fifth after leading early on, Johnny Herrera came back in the closing laps to claim third in the Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 45x.

"We got there at the end. We started out good, I just got into those holes on the bottom the first couple of laps just searching; trying to find the right part of the race track to run and by that time I made a couple mistakes, and those guys got by me. After that, I just kind of settled in. We weren't real good with the car, but we'll take a third out of it and work on it for tomorrow night."

Coming from ninth, Seth Bergman steadily worked his way forward. Cracking the top-five on Lap 17, the Washington native grabbed away the final transfer into Saturday's A-Feature from Aaron Reutzel on the final lap as Aaron was having to handle a very erratic car as a Left Front Radius Rod Bolt broke in the closing laps.

Having to make the car as wide as possible, Aaron was able to hold into a fifth place finish, but will have to bring out a brand new car as the No. 87 suddenly snapped around after the checkered flag, right in the line of J.J. Hick. The two hit hard nose to nose. Chase Goetz was also caught up in the crash. All three drivers were okay.

Henry Van Dam crossed sixth with J.J. Hickle credited with seventh. Logan Forler from 16th ran to eighth with Jay Cole ninth. In his first trip to the Grays Harbor Raceway in the Van Dyke Motorsports No. 5h, Cory Eliason rounded out the top-ten.

A field of 39 drivers were on hand for the first night of the second annual Fred Brownfield Classic, yielding five Heat Races that went to Sam Hafertepe, Jr., Robbie Price, Reece Goetz, Jay Cole, and J.J. Hickle. A pair of B-Mains were topped by Justin Youngquist and Roger Crockett. The night's only Provisional start was used by Matt Covington.

The Fred Brownfield Classic continues on Saturday, July 2 with races getting underway at 7:00 P.M. (PDT). For more information, log onto http://www.graysharborraceway.com.

Fred Brownfield Classic Next For Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network
TULSA, Okla. (June 27, 2016) The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network continues its run through the Pacific Northwest this Independence Day Weekend with the second running of the Fred Brownfield Classic presented by Little Creek Casino at the Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash. on Friday, July 1 and Saturday, July 2.


Going into the two day showdown, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. rolls in $15,000 richer after topping the 45th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup at the Skagit Speedway. With the win, Hafertepe has extended his advantage over Johnny Herrera in the championship standings to 89 markers.

In the series 2015 return to the three-eighths mile oval, Washington's Jason Solwold topped the Friday preliminary feature event with Johnny Herrera coming back to win the Saturday finale.

Over the course of the past seven races, Logan Forler has moved to third in tour standings with Aaron Reutzel moving from sixth to fourth. Rolling into the weekend off a runner-up finish at Dirt Cup, Reutzel's 2015 appearance at the Grays Harbor Raceway yielded a third and an eighth place finish but his fourth place standing is a slim one as Matt Covington and Blake Hahn trail by two points, as the pair are tied for the fifth position.

Making it a four way battle for the fourth point's position, Wayne Johnson trails the spot by 14 markers. Johnson's 2012 win at the Grays Harbor Raceway was one of the most emotional of his career as a crash two years before at the Washington oval nearly ended his career.

Seth Bergman enters the weekend eighth in tour standings. Getting caught up in a crash on Friday night at Skagit, the Washington native rebounded on Saturday with a third place finish despite a fuel line that had come loose and began spraying the drive of the No.23 with raw Methanol in the closing laps.

Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash. has seen the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network in action ten times since 2009 with seven different winners. Oregon's Roger Crockett found Victory Lane in the series debut visit on July 17, 2009. Roger's lone win in National Tour competition at the Washington oval, Jason Johnson leads in wins at the Grays Harbor Raceway with three.

Travis Rilat with two wins is the only other multi-time winner in Lucas Oil ASCS competition at Grays Harbor. Shane Stewart, Wayne Johnson, Jason Solwold, and Johnny Herrera have each visited Victory Lane once.

Friday, July 1 and Saturday, July 2 the second annual Fred Brownfield Classic presented by Little Creek Casino opens at 5:30 P.M. Will-Call opens at 4:30 P.M. (PDT) Races get underway both nights at 7:00 P.M. (PDT).

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Dominates The 45th Annual Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup
ALGER, Wash. (June 25, 2016) Sam Hafertepe, Jr. turned in a dominating performance with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, leading start to finish at the Skagit Speedway for a $15,000 score in the 45th annual Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by Jack in the Box.

Hafertepe's 11th career Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour triumph, the win is Sam's fourth National Tour triumph of the season, and marks his 10th podium appearance of 2016.

Putting the win into words, Sam stated, "You know, this is pretty awesome. I know a lot of these fans know that Rudeen gave me my first opportunity up here so I was able to get a lot of laps around here. We won an Outlaw show here, and tried the Dirt Cup a few times with those guys and just never got it done, so to come here tonight, and get Dirt Cup in my car; I just really have to thank Rudeen for everything they've done for me through the years because this it's just awesome."

Gridding the lineup second, the driver of the Keith Dobbs Motorsports No. 15h outgunned defending race winner, Jason Solwold into the first two turns to begin building a comfortable advantage.

Working the cushion at both ends of the Skagit Speedway, traffic became a major factor as the race worked to the tenth lap, forcing Sam to begin searching the bottom.

Allowing the Mike Anderson owned No. 18 to shave a few seconds off Hafertepe's advantage, the Texas native stayed out of danger, delivering slide jobs to the slower cars in almost every corner.

Asked of his level of concern, Sam said, "I was definitely concerned. When you see the No. 87 rolling up on the board, and the No. 23, both are tough competitors and I knew if they were able to get by Jason [Solwold] they were going to be pretty tough so I burned the tires off just giving everything I could give it. We were blistered on every block because I was not conserving tires, I was trying to get a far ahead of them guys as I could."

Out of that concern, Hafertepe pulled to a nearly five second advantage as the race rolled just past the half-way point before the caution flew on Lap 22 for Travis Jacobson. With several lapped cars in the lineup, Sam again pulled to a comfortable advantage; leaving Solwold to contend with the hard charging No. 23 of Seth Bergman.

Working to second on the 24th revolution, Bergman began closing the gap on Hafertepe as Aaron Reutzel went to work on Jason Solwold for the third spot. Trading the final podium step several times, the Dissolvalloy No. 87 finally grabbed the spot on Lap 33 with Blake Hahn moving to fourth two laps later.

With the track still under green flag conditions, Hafertepe was elbows up through traffic, lapping to 11th place en-route to the night's $15,000 score.

Close quarters racing with Seth Bergman in the closing laps that saw the pair tap tires more than once, Aaron Reutzel from 10th gabbed the runner-up spot on Lap 39. The silver medal performance is the second time in as many years for Reutzel.

"I felt like I gave this one away last night. If I'd just finished top four, I think we might have won this thing. We by far had one of the fastest racecars. We had one caution and drove up through there but on that one restart, there were probably six lapped cars we had to go through before we even got to Sam but this is nothing to hang our heads about. We've had such a tough year, we needed this as a team. Me and Marty needed this to build up a little confidence."

Despite a massive fuel leak on the Corridor Electric No. 23 during the closing laps, Washington's Seth Bergman held on to finish third.

"It seems like no matter where me and the No. 87 car are on the track, whether it's for the lead, or 10th place, we always seem to race hard, but hats off to Sam and those guys, they did a great job," commented Seth gave another tip of the hat to Aaron for the close, but clean race.

"This is a good top three in my opinion. I had a run on Sam there late in the race, and I really thought I was going to have something for him but I got the wing a little far back and got tight in traffic, and you can't make those mistakes with Aaron behind you but really, I'm just happy we didn't catch on fire. I had a fuel line come off with six to go and I was soaked so I was just trying to hold on and finish in once piece. I'm grateful to be standing here on the podium after that and after the way our weekend started last night."

Jason Solwold was shuffled to fifth, but would end up fourth after Blake Hahn was disqualified for failing to report to the scales. Johnny Herrera moved up one to complete the top-five.

Wayne Johnson from ninth was sixth with Chase Goetz charging from 19th to seventh. Friday's winner, Marc Duperron, was eighth with Logan Forler and Cam Smith making up the top-ten.

Five Heat Races on Saturday night went to Seth Bergman, Eric Fisher, Wayne Johnson, Travis Jacobson, and Colton Heath. Qualifier wins were scored by Matt Covington, Aaron Reutzel, and Logan Forler. B-Main wins went to Travis Rilat and Skylar Gee. In all, 44 drivers took part in the rain shortened 2016 Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by Jack in the Box.

Up next, the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network heads for Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash. for the Fred Brownfield Classic on Friday, July 1 and Saturday, July 2.

Canada's Marc Duperron Triumphs In 2016 Lucas Oil ASCS Dirt Cup Prelim Night
ALGER, Wash. (June 24, 2016) A brand new car, the season's first race, and it culminates in a win. Sounds like a story fit for Disney, but the fairytale is true as Canada's Marc Duperron was the class of the field at Washington's Skagit Speedway in the kick off to the 45th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by Jack in the Box.

 

Only Marc's third Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour A-Feature start, the driver of the Apri's North/KPC Chassis No. 11eh is the 133rd different winner in Lucas Oil ASCS competition and is the 10th different winner in 2016. Marc Duperron is also the first Canadian to score a win against the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

The win is also a first for Duperron at the Skagit Speedway.

"I was just thinking, if you would have asked me about Wednesday night on the way up here with this being out first race of the season, I would tell you that you were full of crap if you'd would have said this car was going to be up front, but hats off to the guys that work on this thing," said Duperron, who led flag-to-flag on Friday night.

"It's been nine months. I could have had a baby since I was in the car last but we had a lot of luck go our way and lot of good guys on this car."

Surviving several rounds of reds and cautions on the start of the A-Feature, that collected Seth Bergman, Jake Helsel, Travis Rilat, and Chase Goetz; each restart was a challenge as Jason Solwold charged every line in an attempt for the lead. Able to take the lead at one point, the red flag brought the field back to the last fully completed lap.

Protecting the bottom as the race finally got rolling, the leaders found light traffic at the race's half-way point. Working around a few slower cars, the caution again flew as Justin Youngquist and Wayne Johnson spun to a stop top in the second turn.

Attached again by the defending Dirt Cup Champion, Duperron kept it smooth and clean, winning by 1.339 seconds.

Crossing second, Jason Solwold's 21st career Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour feature start put the Mike Anderson owned No. 18 in the A-Feature on Saturday night.

"We had him on that one restart, and I don't know how many we had with all those cars crashing, it seemed like we were never going to make a lap," commented Jason on his attempts at the lead. "We never really got into lapped traffic, so I'm kind of curious to know what would have happened there but we just got beat; but we'll take second today."

Quite a turnaround from his 2015 Dirt Cup debut, Blake Hahn put the Lucas Oil/CSR Garage No. 52 on the final podium step.

"We're really happy to lock into this big show. It's such a big deal and after last year, we'll take anything. We hurt two cars while we were up there, so we're just really happy we had a good night. Locking it in just makes in ever better," said Hahn of his third podium finish of the season.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. from ninth, grabbed the final transfer into Saturday's A-Feature. The Sunnyvale, Texas native was chased to the line by Cam Smith to complete the top-five.

From 16th, Logan Forler finished sixth with Johnny Herrera, from a B-Main, moving through the field to seventh from 17th. Colton Heath from 15th crossed eighth with Jared Petersen and Trey Starks completing the top-ten. Starks from 21st was the night's FSR Radiator Hard Charger.

With the weather keeping some away, 43 drivers made the call for Friday night's preliminary showdown. Five Heat Races went to Eric Fisher, Skylar Gee, Jason Solwold, Marc Duperron, and Seth Bergman.

Qualifiers were topped by Wayne Johnson, Sam Hafertepe, Jr., and Blake Hahn.

The night's B-Main wins went to Johnny Herrera and Canada's Steve Reeves.

The finale of the 45th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by Jack in the Box
With a $15,000 winner's check on the line on Saturday night, racing is scheduled to begin at 7:00 P.M. (PDT) with Modifieds joining the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. For more information, log onto http://www.skagitspeedway.com.

Thursday Night At Dirt Cup Falls To Rain; Racing Set For Friday and Saturday
ALGER, Wash. (June 23, 2016) With several hard showers rolling through the Skagit Speedway, and more on the way, the kick-off to the 45th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by Jack in the Box will have to wait as Thursday's opener has been rained out

Action is on schedule for a Friday/Saturday showdown.

With the weather changing the show to a two-day affair, the format of cumulative points has been scrapped and will now be two complete shows under the ASCS format to determine who will advance on into Saturday's $15,000 to win, $1,000 to start feature event. No provisional will be allowed for this event.

ASCS Format, as explained in the ASCS Rule Book, is as follows:

Section 2 - Qualifying Procedures

(National Tour Specific, For 39 Cars or Less. Regional Tour Format Only)

Qualifying heat races will be held at all events. Lineups are determined by random pill draw. Draw is held at the close of the Driver's Meeting. It is the responsibility of the driver, or a team representative to be present for the draw. Any team that fails to draw in will be allowed to start at the tail of a Heat Race, but will receive no Passing Points. Only finishing points. No exceptions will be made (Point scale on Pg. 13).
The car count at the close of the drawing for qualifying heats will determine the number of heats to be run. As each number is drawn for a car, that number will be posted and this procedure will be repeated until a number has been drawn for each car that wishes to compete. The lowest number goes to the pole of the first heat race, the next lowest drawn number goes to the pole of the second heat, etc. Once pole position in each heat is filled, the next lowest number goes to the outside front row of the first heat, etc. If there are an uneven number of cars to equally distribute between heats, the last cars will be placed at the back of the lowest numbered heats. Any cars not represented at the drawing shall be placed at the rear of a heat race. Heat races will determine the starting position for the balance of races scheduled.
The passing point system will be used to determine starting positions in feature events (see below). The driver will receive points for passing as well as finishing position, with the eight drivers accumulating the most points from heat races redrawing for feature starting position (top point earner drawing first, second highest draws next, etc.) and the balance of the "A" Feature and "B" Feature(s) lined straight-up according to passing point totals.
On the second night, cars will lineup with the first night's lock-ins taking spots 1-4 and will redraw within those spots. The top four in passing points (that were in attendance on the first night) from the second night will occupy spots 5-8 in the A-Feature lineup and will redraw within those spots.
Any driver failing to draw for heat races or pack racing surface (when requested) will not receive passing points, but only points accumulated through his finishing position in his heat race. In the event of a tie in passing points, the driver who first earned the points shall be aligned in front of any subsequent driver earning the same number of points (tie goes to the early heat). Passing points will be figured on the actual starting position on the final parade lap.
Time Trials may be held at some shows.
A car and driver qualify as a team. Each driver can qualify only one car. No driver will be permitted to change cars after taking the green flag of his qualifying heat race. An exception to this rule will be in a two day race.
ASCS or their representative will advise drivers of the make-up of the number of heat races, main events, field maximum size and other pertinent information at the drivers meeting.
The Official lineup is when the caution lights go out on the final parade lap. In the event a car drops out of the line-up for mechanical reasons, the balance of the field shall move straight forward. The exception being if 2 cars drop out from same row, then following cars will be crisscrossed.
The start will be official only upon the starter signaling with the green flag. In the event a pace car is used, all cars shall take their proper position behind it. In the event a pace car is not used, the pole car will set the pace which shall be consistent with track conditions and as required to keep the field in formation. ASCS shall be empowered to disqualify or penalize any driver violating this rule.
A White Line or Cone will be placed off the exit of Turn-4, at a point that the first row is on the front straightaway, for all double-file starts. The field must remain even until the front row reaches the cone or line. The Flag Man will be instructed not to throw the green flag until then. No on track warnings will be given.
On the initial start, any driver who advances position prior to the starter's signal when the front row reaches the cone or line will be docked two positions at the first caution, red flag, or the end of the race; whichever comes first.
On all single file starts after one lap the restarts will start at a Cone to be placed on the front straight-away. The leader must start race from turn 4 cone and all cars must go outside of cone in the proper aligned order. Leader must set a consistent pace and cannot increase his pace before the entrance of Turn 4. Any car going inside of cone or hitting the cone will force a caution and will be placed at the rear of the field. Any car advancing position prior to the cone will be penalized a minimum of two (2) positions plus one position for each position gained over on the next caution or the end of the race depending on what comes first.
Any car requiring a second push on start or restart of race will be placed at rear. The only exception is if a driver is stopped by an ASCS official. Instructions to stop will be delivered over the RACEceiver Radio.
Any car on or near the racing surface that delays the start or restart of any race shall be penalized one lap by Officials. A work area will be designated at drivers meeting.
Alternates will not be taken to fill any vacancies that occur.
Any car not running at a reasonable racing speed may be subject to disqualification for safety reasons.
The winner of each Heat Race, the winner of any consolation feature, and the top five finishers in the A Feature are required to go to the scales. Drivers must go directly to the scales. Any driver not going directly to the scales will be disqualified. The position of the scales will be disclosed during the drivers meeting. It is the responsibility of the drivers to know and understand where and how to get to the scales to avoid any penalties.

Section 2A - Qualifying Procedures

(National Tour Specific, for 40 cars or more.)

Qualifying heat races will be held at all events. Lineups are determined by random pill draw. Draw is held at the close of the Driver's Meeting. Any driver failing to draw for heat races or pack racing surface (when requested) will not receive passing points, but only points accumulated through his finishing position in his heat race. (Point scale on Pg. 13)
The car count at the close of the drawing for qualifying heats will determine the number of heats to be run. As each number is drawn for a car, that number will be posted and this procedure will be repeated until a number has been drawn for each car that wishes to compete. The lowest number goes to the pole of the first heat race, the next lowest drawn number goes to the pole of the second heat, etc. Once pole position in each heat is filled, the next lowest number goes to the outside front row of the first heat, etc. If there are an uneven number of cars to equally distribute between heats, the last cars will be placed at the back of the lowest numbered heats. Again, any cars not represented at the drawing shall be placed at the rear of a heat race. Heat races will determine the starting position for the balance of races scheduled.
The passing point system will be used to determine lineups for three (3) Qualifying Races.
Top 30 in Passing Points from Heat Races will move into Qualifiers. Remainder will fall to the tail of the night's "B" Features. Top 18 will be inverted with the highest point earner from Heat Races starting sixth in the first Qualifier. Qualifiers will be 8 laps each. Passing Points will be utilized with the driver's total points combined with their Heat Race total. The top 16 in combined Passing Points will advance to the A-Feature. Drivers will not redraw for their starting position. Lineup is straight up by the combined Passing Point total. The remainder will fall into B-Features. Number of B-Features is dependent upon the number of cars. 40-50 cars means remaining drivers will drop into two "B" Features. 51-60 will drop into three "B" Features. Lineup will be done by passing point totals with 17th going to the pole of the first "B" Feature, 18th to the pole of the second "B" Feature, etc.
On the second night, cars will lineup with the first night's lock-ins taking spots 1-4 and will redraw within those spots. The top four in passing points (that were in attendance on the first night) from the second night will occupy spots 5-8 in the A-Feature lineup and will redraw within those spots.
Any driver failing to draw for heat races or pack racing surface (when requested) will not receive passing points, but only points accumulated through his finishing position in his heat race. In the event of a tie in passing points, the driver who first earned the points shall be aligned in front of any subsequent driver earning the same number of points (tie goes to the early heat). Passing points will be figured on the actual starting position on the final parade lap.
Time Trials may be held at some shows.
A car and driver qualify as a team. Each driver can qualify only one car. No driver will be permitted to change cars after taking the green flag of his qualifying heat race. An exception to this rule will be in a two day race.

ASCS National Tour Speedweek Belongs to Sam Hafertepe, Jr. With Lucas Oil Speedway Victory

WHEATLAND, Mo. (June 18, 2016) It was a night of firsts for Sam Hafertepe, Jr. On a cushion fit for a king, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. was unstoppable in his first win at the Lucas Oil Speedway; marking his second victory of the 2016 ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek and Bob Westphal Memorial Cup.

With the pair of wins, four top-fives, and a top-ten every night of the 2016 edition of the ASCS Speedway, Hafertepe scored his first Speedweek Championship with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

Sam's third win on the season, the Keith Dobbs Motorsports No. 15h traded nearly a half-dozen slide-jobs with Brad Loyet for the race lead. Hafertepe commented on the race by saying, "Oh man, me and Brad [Loyet] had it going. It was a hell of a race. If these fans don't like that, I don't know what you're going to like because that was awesome. Brad raced a hell of a race. I got into him off the fourth turn there, but he knows we're both going for it and he'd done the same to me. He raced me clean and hard."

Taking off from fourth, Hafertepe shot the runner-up spot on the opening lap with Matt Covington leading the way. Caution on Lap 2, Hafertepe took full advantage of the restart. Getting the slide on the No. 95, with Loyet following to second, Hafertepe began to run away from the field. Finding traffic working the ninth round, the fast line was the top and the task of passing the slower cars was easier said than done.

With Brad closing the gap, the pair began exchanging slide-jobs. Taking the lead for a moment, Loyet's time at the top was short lived as the No. 05 slipped the cushion off the second turn, allowing Sam to retake the top spot.

Caution on Lap 12, Hafertepe again pulled away.

Working his Hoosiers on the high side all the way around the Lucas Oil Speedway, traffic again came into play as the field worked past the 15th round. Catching the back bumper of the No. 15h again, the pair resumed their exchange with Loyet again taking the lead, only to have Hafertepe steal it right back at both ends of the track.

Cautions on Laps 25 and 26, the final restart saw Hafertepe run away to a 3.995 second advantage at the drop of the checkered flag.

Loyet's third podium of the season, Brad ended his Speedweek second in overall standings. "We had a really, really, good racecar. On the start, we kind of got pinched there by Covington and that let Sam get right by us. But I had a really good car. Lapped traffic was key for me, I think I was a whole lot better that Sam in traffic but those yellows just fell at the wrong time for me. We we're getting ready to pounce both times but hats off to those guys," commented Loyet.

Bouncing around the top-ten most of the race, Jonathan Cornell used attrition and restarts to bring the Kiowa Line Builders No. 28 home third, "It's been a pretty exciting night honestly, just some close racing starting in the Heats and the Qualifiers, but; I fell back a little bit at the start of the Feature. We thought the bottom was going to hang around longer than it did so we set up for it. I kind of talked by Crew Chief out of changing the gear and I wish I would have listened to him. We just didn't have the MPH or the momentum like these guys on the long runs."

Logan Forler came from 10th to fourth with Channin Tankersley clawing his way from 17th to fifth; this after winning a B-Feature on three wheels due to contact with an infield tire. From 14th, New York's Jason Barney was sixth in his first trip to the Lucas Oil Speedway with Tyler Thomas charging from 20th to seventh. Skipping over the cushion early in the race, John Carney II rebounded to eighth with Seth Bergman ninth. From 21st, Blake Hahn completed the top-ten.

With 42 drivers drawing in at Lucas Oil Speedway, the total number of drivers taking part in this year's Speedweek was 68 with three winners. Saturday at Wheatland saw five Heat Races going to Matt Covington, Brad Loyet, Chance Morton, Brandon Hanks, and Ray Allen Kulhanek. Qualifiers were topped by Matt Covington, Aaron Reutzel, and Wayne Johnson. B-Mains went to Channin Tankersley and Chance Morton. Provisional starts were used by Kyle Bellm and Evan Martin.

Up next of the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is the 45th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by Jack in the Box, happening June 23-25, 2016 at the Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash.

Speedweek's first repeat winner, Loyet gave chase the first 17 laps before finding the line around the Missouri State Fair Speedway and leader, Channin Tankersley, as the pair began to clear slower traffic.

"To win here is really cool. I've always wanted to pick up a win here at the "Historic Half-Mile" so now my names on the list but, it definitely wasn't easy. Channin [Tankersley] was setting a really quick pace out there and I didn't know if I was going to catch him. I though lapped traffic was going to help me, but it actually hurt me getting into the dirt air and throwing up a lot of dust," commented Loyet, who is not third in Speedweek standings.

"Right when I got by him, the Nose Wing fell on the Hood, and I like great, what are the odds of this? But it all worked out. It feels awesome to win after last night and the fiasco that happened there. To come out here and win puts a nail in the coffin and proves a point that we're not here to mess around. We're here to win."

Gridding the No. 05 fourth, Loyet found his way to the runner-up spot on the fifth round. Chasing Channin Tankersley, the back of the field came into view on Lap 9 with the Berryman Motorsports No. 31b of Tankersley still able to keep Loyet at a half straightaway deficit.

Working top and bottom on the Sedalia oval, the pair ran in their own world as Loyet finally started to gain ground on Tankersley. Under continuous green flag laps, Channin began having to search around to clear slower cars, allowing Loyet to close the gap.

With the run building, Loyet shot to the lead on Lap 18. Putting several car lengths on the No. 31b, Tankersley began pedaling back to Loyet's back bumper as the field came to five to go. Game on with the field coming to the final two laps, the white flag was out with Channin setting up for the run, only to see the race's only caution fly.

Restacked single file, Loyet was not to be denied as the final two laps saw the No. 05 pull away.

A massive turn around for Tankersley, who has crashed out the last two nights, the runner-up finish was just what the Berryman Motorsports team needed.

Reflecting on the race, Channin stated, "We had a good car starting out, just got a little free there at the end. That's just part of it, the track started going away but Brad [Loyet] did pretty good. He ran the last half of the race like you're supposed too but I'm just tickled to death right now. I would have like to have won it, but second is way better than what we've been doing. We've had a rough start to Speedweek so I can't thank all my guys enough for busting their butts and not giving up on me. Feels good to walk away with a podium finish."

Coming from the 14th starting spot, Johnny Herrera's night paid dividends as the New Mexico veteran's seventh podium finish of the season brought Herrera to within a single point of Sam Hafertepe, Jr. in the Lucas Oil ASCS National Driver Standings, and second in Speedweek points.

"We had an awesome Racecar. Too bad we started 14th because I think we may have had something for them boys. Just had work extra hard to get to those cars but we had one hell of a Hot Rod tonight. Big thanks to Chris, my crew guy. We got behind on the start of the night. We had to change motors so we didn't have any Hot Laps. We put in an old motor in that we borrowed from a guy down in Texarkana so I need to give a big shout out to Mark Huddleston. He let me borrow the motor and this thing is probably 10 years old but it's an old hoss and it ran good."

Tyler Thomas crossed fourth with Matt Covington fifth. Seth Bergman worked to sixth from the 10th start spot with Josh Baughman eighth. Wayne Johnson from 12th crossed ninth, followed by Aaron Reutzel to round out the top-ten after having to come from deep in the B-Feature due to an engine swap on the No. 87.

Drawing 36 drivers to the Missouri State Fair Speedway, four Heat Races went to Tyler Thomas, Josh Baughman, Brandon Hanks, and Randy Martin. The night's B-Main went to Jonathan Cornell. A Regional Provisional was awarded to Cody Baker as the first non-transfer ASCS Warrior Region Driver with 100% attendance on the 2016 season. No National Tour Provisionals were utilized.

The 24th ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek and third Bob Westphal Memorial Cup concludes on Saturday, June 18 at the "Diamond of Dirt Tracks", the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. Races are set to begin at 7:30 P.M. (CDT). For more information, log onto http://www.lucasoilspeedway.com.

Bryan Clauson Adds Lucas Oil ASCS Victory At Creek County Speedway To His Resume
SAPULPA, Okla. (June 16, 2016) Only losing the lead for the first three-quarter lap of Thursday's A-Feature with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Indiana's Bryan Clauson became the 132nd winner with the National Tour of the American Sprint Car Series with a near dominating performance at the Creek County Speedway.

 

Clauson's eighth career Lucas Oil ASCS A-Feature start, Creek County Speedway counts as his 80th night of racing in his 2016 "Circular Insanity Tour" and 22nd overall win on the year; surpassing his win total for the entire 2015 season.

"I just can't say enough about the guys standing over there behind me that work on this Cancer Treatment Centers of America/Elk Grove Ford car. It was stout from the time we unloaded it tonight. I'm just really proud of all the guys. We were running up front last night and had a little bit of bad luck and it was awfully hot today so they busted their butts with two cars to get ready and both cars were pretty strong so it just goes to show how far we've come as a team," said a sweat soaked Bryan Clauson in Victory Lane.

Trailing Kyle Bellm through the first two turns, Clauson, who started on the pole, pulled the slide job off the fourth turn to reclaim the top spot.

Able to pull to over three seconds on the No. 14k, slower traffic came into the picture as the field worked the tenth round. Allowing Bellm to close the gap, the RAMS No. 14k was joined by the Hwy. 79 Collision No. 15h of Sam Hafertepe, Jr.
Caution on Lap 13, Hafertepe shot to second the following lap, only to have another caution negate the move.

Keeping pace with Clauson the first lap back under green, it wasn't long before the No. 117 machine began pulling away to a 2.690 second advantage at the checkered flag over Kyle Bellm, who picked up his best finish of the season with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

"We've had a rough go of it so far so this is just what our team needed. I wish we'd had a little something for Clauson but he was the class of the field all night long, so congrats to those guys. That was an excellent job but we'll take second here. We're proud of it," commented Bellm.

Hafertepe's eight podium finish in 11 races, the third place run is his sixth consecutive on the season, and first at the Creek County Speedway in National Tour competition.

"Everybody knows this is not a good track for me. I'm sure all these fans have seen me flip here a hundred times. We've always struggled here in the past and to at least come out here and finish a night, much less run third. If you'd told me we were going to run third during Speedweek, I'd laughed at you," Said Sam who praised his crew as well as car owner, Keith Dobbs, for the work that's gone into the No. 15h as the team now leads National Tour standings by 17 points.

After taking a provisional at Lawton Speedway on Wednesday, Wayne Johnson crossed the stripe fourth with Johnny Herrera working his way to a fifth place finish.
New York's Jason Barney moved from ninth to finish sixth with Blake Hahn seventh after falling back to 11th at the start of the A-Feature. Matt Covington was eighth with Seth Bergman ninth. Logan Forler completed the top-ten.

With 41 drivers making the call at the Creek County Speedway, the series' secondary format of Heats and Qualifiers was implemented. Five Heat Races wen to Alex Sewell, Aaron Reutzel, Jason McDougal, Bryan Clauson, and Matt Covington. Dropping the Top 30 in Passing Points into three Qualifiers, wins went to Sam Hafertepe, Jr., Kyle Bellm, and Johnny Herrera.

Twin B-Mains were topped by Joe Wood, Jr. and Steven Russell. Out of the B-Mains, Brad Loyet and Josh Baughman utilized Provisionals.

The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network teams up with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps for the next two rounds of the ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek with the fourth round at the "Historic Half-Mile" Missouri State Fair Speedway in Sedalia, Mo. on Friday, June 17.

Brad Loyet Rolls Top Shelf To Lucas Oil ASCS Score At Lawton Speedway

LAWTON, Okla. (June 15, 2016) Picking up his first victory of the 2016 season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Missouri's Brad Loyet became the eighth different winner in 10 races aboard the Buddy Loyet Motorsports No. 05 at the Lawton Speedway.

Round two of the ASCS Sizzin' Summer Speedweek, the win is Loyet's fifth overall on the season, and eighth with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network since 2012.

Rolling past Brandon Hanks on the cushion on the fourth round, third starting Loyet was uncontested the remainder of the night's 30 lap A-Feature event.

"I was following those guys on the bottom the first two or three laps and the car; it was good there, but I wasn't going to them there so I put it up on the top," said Loyet of the move to the high side. "The car was rotating good all night."

Thanking his crew, father, and most importantly is expecting wife, Loyet continued with, "Overall it's been a tough year with ASCS with just bad luck from breaking wheels to getting involved in stuff that wasn't our fault, so to come out here and win, you know, we earned this one all by ourselves tonight and I've just gotta thank by guys for sticking with me and hopefully, this is just the first of many."

Caution on Lap 6, the restart saw Johnny Herrera and Sam Hafertepe on the move as Herrera from seventh, and Hafertepe from 10th, trailed each other through the pack.

Back at it following a Lap 7 red that saw John Carney II and Channin Tankersley walk away from going upside down, Loyet took off with New York's Jason Barney on his back bumper. Unable to make the run, the No. 87b would have to fend off Brandon Hanks as both finally fell to the charge of Johnny Herrera.

Working through slower traffic, the race's final caution fell on Lap 25. Having worked the bottom the entire race, Herrera stuck low only to have Sam Hafertepe, Jr. charge around on the top for the runner-up spot.

"We were just terrible early. We needed to be good early and take advantage of it before it laid rubber but we got better at the end; but we just missed it tonight. To run second, really to come back there like we did at the end of the race, I shouldn't be complaining. When you run second you shouldn't be complaining about missing it, but that's how good our team's been lately. We've expected to run this good every night."

Taking over the point's lead by seven markers, and extending his Speedweek lead to 20, Hafertepe was trailed to the line by Herrera.

Asked about the final race restart, Herrera replied, "I didn't know the rubber was there, I didn't do anything different there I hadn't done the last 25 laps. We got the second and was running the leader down just on that restart there, I just didn't know it was there. I didn't want to see it come out for sure. I really think Brad would have won and we would have run second and that would have been the end of it, but we still had a good car. Just fell short there at the end, but we'll take a podium and go on."

Making the drive from Brewerton, N.Y. Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint point's leader, Jason Barney, bounced around the top-five the entire race with the No. 87b ultimately crossing fourth. Blake Hahn from the 9th starting spot came out with a fifth place finish.

From 11th, Aaron Reutzel brought his No. 87 machine home sixth with Logan Forler seventh. After leading early on, Tennessee's Brandon Hanks slipped to finish eight with Josh Baughman gaining ten spots to finish ninth. Seth Bergman advanced from 15th to complete the top-ten.

A field of 37 drivers from 13 states took part in Wednesday's presentation of the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network at Lawton Speedway. Five Heat Race wins went to Blake Hahn, Logan Forler, Johnny Herrera, Danny Wood, and Brandon Long. The night's B-Features were topped by Channin Tankersley and Ray Allen Kulhanek. Provisional starts were utilized by Wayne Johnson, who suffered mechanical issues during the A-Feature, and Steven Russell, who charged to 14th from 24th.

Michael Miller Triumphs In ASCS Gulf South/SOS Showdown at Battleground Speedway

HIGHLANDS, Texas (June 11, 2016) Tip the scales of power, as Mississippi's Michael Miller scored one for the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints on Saturday night at the Battleground Speedway; topping the second showdown of the season between the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints and the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region presented by Southern Trailer Works.

Getting the pole in Saturday's A-Feature, Miller took full advantage, but was not quick to get away and hide. Stalked throughout the race, the close laps looked like the advantage was about to swing to Channin Tankersley, but Miller was able to hold off the No. 14.

Channin settled for second with Michael McNeil third. Ray Allen Kulhanek and Tommy Bryant made up the top-five.

Caleb Martin was sixth, followed by Travis Elliot. From 15th, Shane Morgan climbed to eighth with Jacob Lucas and Kyle Amerson making up the top-ten.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Is King Of Lucas Oil ASCS Return To Route 66 Motor Speedway
AMARILLO, Texas (June 11, 2016) The return of the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network to the Route 66 Motor Speedway kicked off the 2016 ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek and Bob Westphal Memorial Cup, as packed grandstands cheered two sons of Texas with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. working the bottom side of the Amarillo oval to outlast Aaron Reutzel through slower traffic for his second National Tour triumph of the season.


"The bottom was tough tonight but that was the place for us to be for sure. I was surprised to see Aaron [Reutzel] go to the top on that restart in one and two but he opened the bottom up for us. I know he saw us there a couple times, and I thought he would move back down but then we got a heck of a good run through turns one and two and were able to get by him," said Hafertepe who now sits atop the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour standings in a tie with Johnny Herrera.

"I knew he was there the whole time. He's a hard racer and he wants to win just as bad as anyone else out here and I knew if I made a couple mistakes, he'd be right there and I was really worried I made to many mistakes because we got really tight on the bottom of three and four in traffic, but out on open track; we were awesome."

Drawing the sixth starting spot for the A-Feature, Sam made quick moves to the runner-up spot on the start as Wayne Johnson jumped to the point after starting on the pole. Going after the race lead, Hafertepe was joined by Josh Baughman with the trio going three wide working the second lap with Hafertepe grabbing the lead, only to have a caution negate the pass.

Chasing the No. 2c to the green, Sam wasted little time; making the pass for the top spot on Lap 3. With Aaron Reutzel moving to second a couple laps later, the pair began a game of Cat and Mouse through slower traffic, with Reutzel finally able to roll top-shelf to the race lead.

Caution on Lap 12, the pair worked top to bottom around the three-eighths mile oval with Hafertepe patiently working the bottom groove as Reutzel moved top to one and two, and bottom to three and four.

Finding their way to the back of the field once again, Hafertepe reclaimed the lead on Lap 16. Rolling under caution for the last time on Lap 18, Reutzel made several attempts for the race lead, but would not be able to work back around the No. 15h as Sam won by 0.758 seconds.

Summarizing his race, Aaron said, "I guess the bottom was greasy there when I was making the top work but they cleaned the bottom off and got back going and, you know, It's really disappointing to get the lead then sit on the top and end up handing it over like that but I just have to thank my guys for standing behind me. We're finally starting to get some momentum back."

Exchanging the third spot a half-dozen times over the course of the A-Feature, Danny Wood bested Wayne Johnson in the closing laps for the final podium step to mark Wood's 46th career National Tour podium appearance.

"I hope the fans enjoyed that because me and Wayne; we were drawn up. It was just so hard not to make a mistake, but this was a great little racetrack. Just fun to race," said Danny. "I got a little snookered on the start. I thought it was going to be a little stickier than that and I didn't have my wing back far enough so, I wish we could have been a little better on the start but, you never know. I was still a good race."

Wayne Johnson crossed fourth with Josh Baughman settling for a fifth place finish. Brad Loyet moved from 10th to sixth with Logan Forler seventh. From 11th, Blake Hahn crossed eighth with John Carney II ninth. Relegated to the 22nd starting spot after mechanical failure sidelined the No. 23 in the opening Heat, Seth Bergman clawed to a 10th place finish and an extra $400 from "The Girls".

With a 24 car field on hand, three Heat Races went to Wes Wofford, Josh Baughman, and Brandon Long. All drivers went to the night's A-Feature.

With the first round of the 2016 ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek and Bob Westphal Memorial Cup in the books, the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Networks heads for the Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas on Tuesday, June 14.

Jack Dover Wins ASCS Warrior Region Bud Shootout At U.S. 36 Raceway
CAMERON, Mo. (June 10, 2016) For the 11th time in his career, Nebraska's Jack Dover parked his familiar No. 53 in Victory Lane with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps; topping the field at the U.S. 36 Raceway in the annual Budweiser Shootout.


Earning an extra $500 with a win in the night's second Heat, Dover drew the pole for the night's 25 lap A-Feature. Jumping to the point, the cushion was the place to be for the Home Pride Motorsports entry, as Dover led flag-to-flag at the high-banked, three-eighths mile oval.

While Dover was able to keep several restart attempts for the lead at bay, the race for second was seemingly non-stop as Tony Bruce, Jr. and Jonathan Cornell traded the runner-up spot throughout the race with Bruce making the last lap pass for the silver position in the Smith Racing No. 86. Cornell would have to settle for the bronze with Jordan Boston and Mitchell Moore completing the top-five.

Cody Baker from 13th crossed sixth with Logan Forler seventh. Jay Russell was eighth with Chad Goff earning the night's Tiger Towing Hard Charger Award coming from 18th to ninth. Goff received half the night's 50/50 drawing, worth $330. Toby Chapman made up the top-ten.

Each of the night's Heat Races was $500 winner take all with Jordan Boston, Jack Dover, and Tony Bruce, Jr. each earning Heat Race wins.

The Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps heads for Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, Mo. on Saturday, June 11.

Herrera Holds Off Hafertepe At The Line At Hartford Speedway
HARTFORD, Mich. (June 3, 2016) The debut event for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network and Great Lakes Super Sprints at the Hartford Speedway set the bar high as Johnny Herrera held off the hard charging No. 15h of Sam Hafertepe, Jr. by a matter of feet at the line for his second ASCS National score of the 2016 season.


"I was no good on the restarts. It would take me a couple laps to get going and Sam was better. Even the initial start, he could get going better than I could and I knew that going into that last yellow and I just thought man, I'm going to be in trouble," commented Herrera. "I was balled up on the right rear just sliding across the racetrack and I think Sam was maybe a little better so I actually ran into three really hard on the last lap because he was going to come hard and I missed the bottom and luckily I did that because he was coming."

Third times a charm on the A-Feature start, Herrera was able to out gun the No. 15h to the bottom for the race lead. With the low line of the Hartford Speedway the preferred line, cautions were prime time for Hafertepe to get the run on the MVT No. 45x. Despite the tremendous runs however, Herrera was able to keep the door shut on the Hwy. 79 Collision No. 15h.

Slipping slightly off the bottom of the second turn at the race's halfway point, the pair met Left Rear to Right Front for a moment as both driver's skipped off a hole through the second turn.

With the race's final caution coming working Lap 23, the field returned to the last fully completed lap with Hafertepe all but pushing Herrera around the track.

To the final lap, it was game on for the lead as Sam took a full head of steam into the final two turns. Sticking center line though turn three, the No. 15h crept slowly up the racing surface with the race win in sight but off the fourth turn, the view of victory was blocked as Herrera, in a turn of event, was missed the bottom groove, causing the No. 45x to all but back the car up the track. Tapping the brakes, Hafertepe turned down the track, using the banking to launch down the straightaway, but Herrera would recover for the win.

"Johnny was blocking for everything he had. I'd probably do the same thing in that same position if I was a little slower than the guy behind me but he did what he had to do to get the win," said Hafertepe. Asked if he drew from his experience at Lone Star Speedway to run Hartford, Sam replied, "For the most part, kind of. One and two was coming apart so there was only one line we could run down there and it made it tough to try anything. I tried some stuff early, but really, I think if the first start would have gone, we would have been out front."

Hafertepe's runner up finish is his fifth podium finish of the season in Lucas Oil ASCS competition. Utilizing restarts to claim third was sixth starting Wayne Johnson who exchanged Eagle Chassis prior to making the Indiana/Michigan trip.

On the subject of the change and his run, Wayne said, "This car is rolling better. We actually switched cars before this past week and that's the second night on this car, and it's been in the top-three both times, so we have something to build on. Normally, we're too tight in the other car, and we worked on it, and worked on it, and couldn't ever get it free enough, and right there, we were too free so it makes me feel good we can get one to free so we'll go back the other way now and see what we have."

Logan Forler from eighth was fourth with Brad Loyet having to come from the tail as the Buddy Loyet Motorsports No. 05 tangled with Blake Hahn at the start of the A-Feature to round out the top-five.

Ninth starting Dustin Daggett was the highest finishing driver with the Great Lakes Super Sprints in sixth with Josh Baughman, also having to come from the back after spinning on the initial start, crossing seventh.

Victory Belongs To Cornell With The ASCS Warriors In The Tribute To Jesse at Double X Speedway
CALIFORNIA, Mo. (May 29, 2016) Score another one for Jonathan Cornell, as the driver of the Kiowa Line Builders/Starline Brass No. 28 picked up the win at the Double X Speedway on Sunday night in the annual Tribute to Jesse Hockett with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps.

Jumping to the lead on the start, Cornell relinquished the top stop working off turn four on the opening lap to Cody Baker who pulled off a textbook slide job.

Working to traffic, Cornell kept the field at bay as Wayne Johnson moved to the runner-up spot and began to close the gap. Caution just past the race's half-way point, Johnson lined up the No. 2c for the shot at gold, but saw the car ball up on the right front; giving Jonathan plenty of breathing room.

Fending on the City Vending No. 2c on the races final restart with six laps to run, Jonathan Cornell picked up career win No. 27 with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps.

Wayne Johnson held off Kyle Bellm in the closing laps for second. Randy Martin fought to fourth with Cody Baker settling for the fifth spot. Evan Martin was sixth with Chris Morgan seventh. T.J. Muths crossed eighth followed by Tyler Blank from 17th. The top-ten rounded out with Tyler Thomas.

ASCS Gulf South Gearing Up For Three Night Memorial Day Weekend Swing
TULSA, Okla. (May 23, 2016) Memorial Day Weekend is an especially busy one for the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region presented by Southern Trailer Works, as the 14th annual Memorial Day Classic streaks across the state of Texas with stops the RPM Speedway in Crandall, Texas on Friday, May 27. The Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas on Saturday, May 28. And finally, the high-banked Lone Star Speedway in Kilgore, Texas on Sunday, May 29.


Not only is the weekend busy, but offers fans and teams variety as the three Texas ovals range from a quarter-mile to a half-mile in length, with the banking only getting steeper as the weekend progresses.

Going into the weekend triple-header, 2015 Regional Champion, Channin Tankersley, leads the driver standings by 38 over Ray Allen Kulhanek. In the region's last outing, Tankersley secured his first two wins of the year, moving the Highlands, Texas driver from fourth to first on one shot. Channin also pocketed a $1,000 bonus courtesy of Cooper Racing and Challenger Drilling.

The weekend sweep challenge will still be in play this weekend, but with more races, comes a bigger bonus. Win two out of three, you get $1,000, but sweep the weekend, and a driver can pocket an extra $2,000 to bring the total winner's share on the weekend to a possible $10,000.

Looking further down the point standings finds Tommy Bryant third with Travis Rilat and Dustin Gates completing the top-five. Michael McNeil, Jacob Lucas, Zane Lawrence, J.J. Simmons, and Scottie McDonald make up the top-ten.

Seven nights of racing into the 2016 season, only a pair of drivers have multiple wins with Tankersley and Aaron Reutzel each at two. Andy McElhannon, Josh Baughman, and Brandon Hanks each have one to their name.

Friday, May 27 at the RPM Speedway in Crandall, Texas offers a $2,000 to win, $310 to start A-Feature event. Gates open at 5:00 P.M. with racing at 8:30 P.M. (CT). Friday's lineup will also include USRA Modifieds, USA Limited Modifieds, and Factory Stocks. For more information, log onto http://www.rpmdirt.com.

A Thriller Of A Win For Wayne Johnson At Lawton Speedway

LAWTON, Okla. (May 21, 2016) Look up awesome in the Dictionary, and you'll find the race between Wayne Johnson and Blake Hahn at the Lawton Speedway on May 21, 2016 has been added to the definition, as the rising star was schooled by the veteran in the closing laps to pocket the night's $2,000 winner's check with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products.

Kicking off the night's 25 lap A-Feature, Harli White led early from the pole with Hahn giving chase. Holding off several challenges from the No. 52, White lost the handle on her No. 17w on Lap 8, dropping to third as Hahn and Johnson drove by.

Working through heavy lapped traffic, the pair stalked, slid, and worked every angle possible for the slightest advantage with Johnson taking his No. 2c to the point on Lap 14, but it was short lived as Hahn reclaimed the top spot three laps later.

With slower traffic starting to clear, it looked like clear sailing as Wayne was unable to make up a nearly six car length deficit, but the final lapped car was the game changer.

Building a full head of steam as Blake found his path blocked for a moment by Fred Mattox in the No. 26m, Johnson rolled the dice off the second turn; going tree wide through the middle with Hahn and Mattox.

Giving no room for error, Johnson stormed the cushion entering turn three to lead the final four revolutions.

Blake Hahn finished second for a one/two finish on the weekend with Matt Covington making it to the final podium step. Brandon Long crossed forth with Brandon Hanks completing the top-five.

Having to come from the back of the B-Main to transfer, Jason McDougal stormed from 17th to sixth with John Carney II coming from 16th to seventh. Alex Sewell, Joe Bob Lee, and Harli White rounded out the top-ten.

The next event for the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products will be the kick off to the ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek at the Rt. 66 Speedway in Amarillo, Texas on Saturday, June 11 with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

Blake Hahn Triumphs With ASCS Red River at Creek County Speedway

SAPULPA, Okla. (May 20, 2016) Mother Nature tried her best, but the crew of the Creek County Speedway was able to get the show on the road Friday night, and it was Blake Hahn who came out on top at the quick quarter-mile with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products.

The win is Hahn’s first with the American Sprint Car Series in 2016, and second overall in Red River competition.

Taking off from the pole, Hahn would get a second chance at the lead as Jason McDougal out ran the No. 52 off the first two turns. Caution for Matt Covington before the lap could be scored, it was Hahn who led the way.

Surviving several restarts throughout the A-Feature as several drivers took a tumble, with all able to walk away, Hahn was stalked throughout the race by Jason McDougal who posted his best career Red River finish.

Using a late race restart to his advantage, Brandon Hanks was able to climb to the final podium step after starting 12th. Sean McClelland crossed fourth with 14th starting, Fred Mattox, completing the top-five.

Casey Wills from 19th made it to sixth with Kyle Chady, Mickey Walker, Kade Morton, and Waylon Weaver rounding out the top-ten.

Aaron Reutzel Earns His First Lucas Oil ASCS Texas World Dirt Track Championship!
FT. WORTH, Texas (May 14, 2016) An emotional victory turns around a lack luster start to his Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network title defense as Aaron Reutzel captured his first National Tour victory of 2016 at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track for his first Texas World Dirt Track Championship win.


"Man that was awesome. You know, going out there we knew it was going to be rubber down, and you figured the pole guy would win that one, but they left us just enough top to get up there and get to them. Johnny, I really thing, was better than us and if we hadn't had the restart we would have ran second but we were just good enough to get him on that restart," commented Aaron in Victory Lane.

"I got a perfect start and ran the top perfect. After that I never did go back up there and just held on the rest of the night, but I really liked running the top in the beginning because I knew I was saving my right rear while the rest of those guys were burning theirs off so I knew I could go harder, longer, than the rest of those guys. This is kind of an emotional win. We've been struggling so hard lately and I'm just glad Marty hasn't given up on me. I've pretty hard on him because I had a hell of a year last year, so it's been tough. I also need to thank my wife, Shelbey. I just can't thank her enough."

Reutzel's 11th career win with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, the win moved Aaron to sixth in tour standings, 88 markers away from series leader, Johnny Herrera. In six races on the National Tour in 2016, there have been just as many winners.

Giving chase the first eight laps from the seventh starting spot as Johnny Herrera ran from third to the lead through the first two turns, Aaron worked to second before the caution flew as the field worked Lap 9. Going back to the last fully complete lap, the single file restart saw the Dissolvalloy No. 87 roll top shelf to the race lead.

Able to keep the No. 45x at bay through traffic, the last five laps saw Herrera close the gap in a bid for the lead, but would come up short by 0.824 seconds at the drop of the checkered flag.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. crossed third for a solid double podium weekend with Blake Hahn an Matt Covington completing the top-five.

From ninth, Harli White crossed sixth with Logan Forler seventh. Wayne Johnson was eight with Seth Bergman ninth. Josh Baughman made up the top-ten.

Picking up drivers for the Saturday portion of the Texas World Dirt Track Championship, the final car count was 45. Excluding the Friday lock-ins, 41 drivers drew into five Heat Races with Steven Russell, Josh Baughman, Joe Wood, Jr., Seth Bergman, and Matt Covington picking up wins. Qualifiers were topped by Wayne Johnson, Harli White, and Aaron Reutzel. Twin B-Mains went to Ray Allen Kulhanek and Travis Rilat. A regional provisional went to Fred Mattox.

The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network returns to action on June 1 at the Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Ind. This marks the first time the National Tour will be in action at the "Playground of Power". The event will be co-sanctioned with the Great Lakes Super Sprints (GLSS).

Brodix ASCS Frontier Opener Delayed Due To Rain And Near Freezing Forecast

TULSA, Okla. (May 11, 2016) As unpredictable as Mother Nature can be, she seems to have set her sights on the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region this weekend with heavy rain and near freezing temperatures in the forecast; forcing the cancellation of the 2016 season opening double header at the Black Hills Speedway and Gillette Thunder Speedway.

With teams planning on traveling from as far away as Washington, Canada, and as far south as Colorado. the call was made by ASCS Frontier Region officials along with track promoters to give teams plenty of time to update their weekend plans.

A rescheduled date is currently being discussed for the South Dakota and Wyoming facilities and will be announced in the coming weeks.

Pending the rescheduled dates, the 2016 opener for the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region now moves to the June 3 at the Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont.

Seth Bergman Eyes Three-Peat at Texas World Dirt Track Championship


TMS Media Relations - FORT WORTH, Texas (May 9, 2016) - Seth Bergman, a native of Snohomish, Wash., may not be a Texan, but knows the importance of wearing a cowboy hat when visiting the Lone Star State.

Bergman has earned a pair of cowboy hats at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track - the traditional award given to each dirt track winner - as Bergman has won the last two ASCS races at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track.

Now Bergman is looking to add to his collection of cowboy hats when he returns May 13-14 for the Texas World Dirt Track Championship.

Bergman became just the fourth driver in Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track history with two sprint-car wins when he earned consecutive victories in 2014 and '15. This year he will be pursuing multiple cowboy hats during the Texas World Dirt Track Championship weekend as the series will host championship features Friday and again Saturday.

"From the first time that I came there, I have liked the venue," Bergman said of the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track. "I love the atmosphere of that race, especially the race track. The race track is the type that gets wide; it carries speed. If you are good and make good decisions, it seems to play in your favor. I think it's just a combination of things. It really fits how I think on the race track and how I drive. I enjoy being there. All of that has tied together and played out to being pretty successful for me."

Bergman's knack for winning at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track has him affiliated with a star-studded group of sprint car drivers that have earned multiple victories. World of Outlaws drivers Danny Lasoski and Steve Kinser, along with ASCS' Jason Johnson, join him as the only others with a pair of wins.

A visit to the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track could be the solution to getting Bergman on track this season. He has one top-five finish - a runner-up finish in March at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas - in the first four races of the season and has qualified for all four features. However, he remains 84 points behind championship leader Matt Covington.
"I really feel like this is the best opportunity I've had to make a run at the championship," Bergman said. "We've won a few races this year and we gave a lot away, so I feel like we are battling. Some issues are amongst ourselves right now. I feel like we need to get those worked out. Hopefully we can start doing that this week and get all the bad luck and bad decisions out of the way. Hopefully we can hit a stride and when we come into the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track and we can keep pushing forward and get back to our winning ways."

The two-day show gets underway Friday, May 13 with practice at 6 p.m. CT and Limited Modified, Factory Stock and ASCS heats beginning at 7:05 p.m. The evening culminates with the 40-lap ASCS Sprint Car championship.

The weekend show continues Saturday, May 14, beginning at 7:05 p.m. with Factory Stock and Limited Modified qualifiers and followed by features for all three series. The evening will be highlighted by a 30-lap Factory Stock Championship followed by a 40-lap Limited Modified Championship and another 40-lap ASCS Sprint Car Championship.

Grandstand tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under for Friday's action and $25 for adults and $10 for children on Saturday. Fans can save $5 on adult tickets by visiting and purchasing them at any participating O'Reilly Auto Parts store.

Brandon Hanks Triumphs in Impact Signs Open Wheel Showdown at Lucas Oil Speedway

 WHEATLAND, Mo. (May 7, 2016) For the third time in 2016, Tennessee's Brandon Hanks parked his D&B Farms/Moose Tracks No. 84 in Victory Lane, topping the Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps Open Wheel Showdown at the Lucas Oil Speedway.

The co-sanctioned event with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps and the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products, the event drew 38 drivers to the Lucas Oil Speedway.

Brandon's third overall win on the season, the win counts as Hanks' first with the Red River Region, and second with the Warrior Region.

Taking off from the pole, Hanks had to outrun Johnny Herrera for the lead. Not doing so on the initial start, the restart following a four car pileup saw Hanks take off. Giving chase into slower traffic, Herrera's night ended on Lap 6 as Johnny tried to avoid a stalled car, sending the No. 45x flipping into the wall exiting the second turn. Herrera was able to walk away unharmed.

Underway with 8th starting Derek Hagar to his back bumper, Hanks was able to hold off the charge of the No. 9jr as Hagar had to contend with the hard charging No. 17 of Josh Baughman.

Pulling to a nearly four second advantage in the close laps, slower traffic looked like it was going to serve up trouble for Hanks as Hagar and Baughman closed quickly, but laps would run short as Hanks crossed 0.675 seconds ahead of Derek Hagar.

Josh Baughman was third with Wayne Johnson and Zach Daum making up the top-five. Jack Dover crossed sixth followed by Matt Covington.

Covington was scheduled to start sixth, but an engine change after his Heat Race moved him to the tail of his qualifying group, putting the No. 95 14th on the lineup.

Eighth went to Cody Baker with Jonathan Cornell ninth. Spinning on Lap 2 while running fifth, Blake Hahn came back to finish out the top-ten.

The American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products heads back to Texas this coming weekend with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network for the Texas World Dirt Track Championship at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track, happening May 13-14, 2016. More information can be found at http://www.texasmotorspeedway.com.

The Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps returns to action on Friday, May 20 at the "Historic Half-Mile" Missouri State Fair Speedway in Sedalia with the Salute to Veterans Night which also includes the BOSS Chassis WAR Sprint Cars. Races begin at 7:00 P.M. (CT).

Channin Tankersley Sweeps ASCS Gulf South Weekend with GTRP Victory

BEAUMONT, Texas (May 7, 2016) One win deserves another as Channin Tankersley parked the G3 Boats No. 14 in Victory Lane for the second time in as many nights with the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region presented by Southern Trailer Works; topping action at the Golden Triangle Raceway Park in Beaumont, Texas.

The win also netted Channin an extra $1,000 for the weekend sweep thanks to Challenger Drilling and Cooper Motorsports.

Channin’s 16th career ASCS Gulf South win, Tankersley was chased to the line by Aaron Reutzel, who led the first 23 rounds.

However, Aaron was disqualified for actions taken against another driver on the track following the checkered flag that were deemed to be unsportsmanlike conduct. Further action from the American Sprint Car Series is currently under review.

With the disqualification, that moved John Carney II to the runner-up spot with Jacob Lucas credited with third. Seth Bergman was fourth with Ray Allen Kulhanek completing the top-five. J.J. Simmons, Zane Lawrence, Travis Ellott, Dustin Gates, and Michael McNeil made up the top-ten.

The Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region presented by Southern Trailer Works goes at it again with the 14th annual Memorial Day Classic, happening May 27-29 with stops at the RPM Speedway in Crandall, Texas on Friday, May 29 followed by the Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas on Saturday, May 28, and finally the Lone Star Speedway in Kilgore, Texas on Sunday, May 29.

Brian Brown Earns First Career Lakeside Speedway Victory with Lucas Oil ASCS

 KANSAS CITY, Kan. (May 5, 2016) Nothing is as sweet as a hometown victory, and for Brian Brown, it's a win that's been a long time coming as the FVP/Casey's General Store No. 21 broke into Victory Lane at the famed Lakeside Speedway for the first time in his career; topping the McCarthy Auto Group KC Klassic presented by Racinboys.com.

Becoming the fifth different winner of the season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network in 2016, Brown's win in the Impact Signs/Weld No. 21 is the 16th time that Brown has topped the National Tour, and fifth consecutive year he has earned a Lucas Oil ASCS victory.

"We've led a few Outlaw races and let them slip away, but no we hadn't before tonight," said an overjoyed Brian Brown in Victory Lane when asked to confirm this was in fact his first Sprint Car victory at Lakeside Speedway.

"To win this close to home, we have a lot of our partners here. Obviously Casey's General Store, FVP, Impact Signs, Weld Wheels; their on our nose wing tonight and have been a huge supporter of Brian Brown Racing since day one. Champion Oil, Ditzfield Transfer, MC Power, Maxim Chassis, Garrett Engines, Chad Morgan, Wyatt Burks, Michael Williams, my Dad, grandpa George....it seems like when he's here, I just seem to run a little bit better. He has that calming effect on me and has been a huge part of my career and I have to also thank my wife, Heather but it's good to win here at home I can tell you that. When you've won 15-20 races a year, you kind of take that for granted and this our first one this year."

Gridding the night's 30 lap A-Feature outside the front row, Brown would have to play the role of the hunter as Blake Hahn shot into the race lead from the pole.

Losing ground to the Lucas Oil No. 52, the pair found the tail end of the field by the 10th lap. Giving Brown the chance to make up ground as Hahn wrestled with slower traffic, however, Brown had his own battle to contend with as Aaron Reutzel moved past the No. 21 on Lap 15. Able to work back around Reutzel's No. 87 the following laps, Brown made his bid for the lead on Lap 17.

Pulling all the way up to Blake's rear bumper, Brown broke line to the bottom through turns three and four, but the move was quickly negated as the caution flew for Josh Baughman who had come to a stop off the back straightaway with fire on the left side of the car. Josh was okay.

Not able to overtake the No. 52 on the restart, Brown was able to hold off the Dissolvalloy No. 87, who fell to fifth on the restart as Johnny Herrera and Ian Madsen worked by for third and fourth. Working Lap 22, the red flew as Kyle Bellm and Brad Loyet tangled off the second turn battling for 10th. Both drivers were okay.

On the restart, Brown pulled even with Hahn through turns one and two, giving Blake just enough room to race between the No. 21 and the wall to hold the lead. Falling to a half straightaway, Brian was quick to regain his momentum, completing the slide job off the second turn on Lap 23 for the top spot, going on to win by 1.702 seconds.

Blake Hahn's runner-up finish is his first podium of the year with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

"This car was dialed in tonight from Hot Laps all the way to the A-Feature. These guys did great getting the car right, but congratulations to Brian Brown on the win. If I can run second to him on any night, that's a good night for us but we just need to get more comfortable on the big tracks. I think once I get more seat time, we'll be alright."

Trying to setup Hahn for a last lap pass, New Mexico's Johnny Herrera would have to settle for the show position in the MVT No. 45x, but it was good enough to push Herrera back into the points lead by 12 markers over Matt Covington.

"We started eighth there and I really didn't have a very good start. I don't know what I did, if I spun the tires or what, but we ended up losing two or three spots, but the car was good the whole race and we got pretty close there at the end."

Ian Madsen came home fourth with Danny Lasoski advancing 10 spots to complete the top-five as the KSE Hard Charger of the Night.

Seth Bergman, who started 15th, crossed sixth with Aaron Reutzel slipping to seventh after racing into the top three in the race's midpoint. Matt Covington was eighth with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. ninth. Wayne Johnson made up the top-ten.

Four Heat Races for 35 drivers saw wins going to Blake Hahn, Matt Covington, Kyle Bellm, and Brandon Hanks. The B-Feature was topped by Brad Loyet. A regional provisional was used by Evan Martin as the night was co-sanctioned with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps. Jonathan Cornell was the highest finishing Warrior Region driver.

The Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network competes next at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track for the Texas World Dirt Track Championship, happening May 13-14, 2016. Tickets can be purchased now at http://www.texasmotorspeedway.com.

Rilat Invading ASCS Gulf South Region Doubleheader in Texas This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - FORNEY, Texas (May 2, 2016) - Travis Rilat is seeking his first feature victory in the United States this season as he tackles an ASCS Gulf South Region doubleheader this weekend.

Rilat will compete on Friday at Heart O' Texas Speedway in Waco, Texas, and on Saturday at Golden Triangle Raceway Park in Beaumont, Texas.

"We've had some great runs this season, but we're still looking to finish it off with a trip to Victory Lane," he said. "We've won in Australia this year so now we need to even things out by winning here in the United States."

Rilat hasn't raced at Heart O' Texas Speedway very often in recent years. His most recent podium finish at the track came in 2011.

"That's a high-banked track where you need to draw well and have a great handle on your car to put yourself in contention for the win," he said.

However, Rilat has earned multiple podium finishes at Golden Triangle Raceway Park during each of the past two seasons. He placed third and second, respectively, last season and was second and first, respectively, in 2014.

"It's been two years since we've won at Golden Triangle so this would be a great weekend to get back into the Winner's Circle," he said. "We have a team capable of winning a race or two and that's what we're aiming for this weekend."

Derek Hagar Pads Lucas Oil ASCS/SOS Lead With Duck River Raceway Park Victory

LEWISBURG, Tenn. (April 30, 2016) Mother Nature tried, but this time she was merciful as the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints debuted at the Duck River Raceway Park this past Saturday night.

Increasing his advantage in the 2016 driver standings with the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints, Arkansas' Derek Hagar parked the DHR Suspension No. 9jr in Victory Lane for his first ASCS sanctioned victory of 2016 at the Tennessee oval.

The 15th different winner in overall ASCS competition in 2016, Hagar came from fifth to grab the win. Making it a pair of Marion, Arkansas drivers at the top of the A-Feature finish, Marshall Skinner crossed second. The win by Hagar dropped Skinner to a 49 point deficit in the 2016 standings. Completing the night's podium was the Bobby Sparks Racing No. 91 of Steven Russell. Defending series champion, Michael Miller, and 12th starting Nick Snyder rounded out the top five.

Tennessee's Morgan Turpen came from 17th to sixth with Jeff Willingham, Tristan Lee, Kyle Amerson, and Casey Hinds making up the top-ten.

Rain Cuts ASCS Warrior Region Short at Callaway Raceway
 

FULTON, Mo. (April 29, 2016) With cars headed to the staging area, it looked as if the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps was going to win the race against Mother Nature, but the top came in and the bottom fell out as rain swept across the Callaway Raceway.

ASCS Warrior Region officials are currently working with the Callaway Raceway for a date to reschedule. The date, to be announced, will be a complete program.

Three Heats for 23 drivers did see action at the Callaway Raceway with plenty of racing to at least curb the racefan’s appetite. In the first Heat alone, three drivers led laps with Randy Martin taking the win. Heat two saw Brad Loyet take the lead just before the half-way point for a runaway victory. The final Heat was all Evan Martin.

All drivers will receive show up points based off car count. As the A-Feature lineup showed all 23 starting, all drivers will receive 87 points.

The Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps will take on the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network on Thursday, May 5 for the McCarthy Auto Group KC Klassic presented by Racinboys.com at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.

Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints Rained Out at Moulton Speedway

Bob Ream, Jr. Tops ASCS Southwest at Central Arizona Speedway

CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (April 23, 2016) For the seventh time in his career, Arizona's Bob Ream, Jr. parked the Service Launch No. 8 in Victory Lane with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region at the Central Arizona Speedway.

Ream's first win of the year, the victory was enough to push Ream into the points lead, only four points ahead of Rick Ziehl.

Giving chase the first 14 laps as New Mexico's Lorne Wofford showed the way, 90 degrees, little or no humidity, and wind yield rubber, and it was Ream who found if first. Working past Wofford with an inside line move, a pair of cautions near the race's end we're not enough for Lorne to rebound to the point. Colton Hardy made up the night's podium with Ryan Linder and Rick Ziehl completing the top-five.

Jeremy McCune was sixth with Kaylene Verville seventh. Casey Buckman from 13th was eighth with James Aragon taking SpeedMart Hard Charger honors with a run to ninth from 18th. Kyle Danielson made up the top-ten.

Adding to the night's payout, Lorne Wofford, Ryan Linder, and Lance Norick each earned an extra $25 from Ron Gilson. The Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region returns to competition on May 14 at the Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, Ariz.

John Carney II Tops Exciting ASCS Red River/Warrior Region Showdown at Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (April 23, 2016) The first showdown of the season between the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products and the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs was a thriller as El Paso, Texas shoe John Carney II walked away with the night's $2,000 score at the Springfield Raceway.

Being a co-sanctioned event, the win counts as Carney's first with the ASCS Warrior Region, and second in ASCS Red River competition.

Gridding the John James Racing No. 4j fifth, Caney jumped top shelf on the start, following sixth starting Hahn to the front of the field. Chasing down early race leader, Mitchell Moore, Hahn raced to the lead on Lap 7 as the leaders found the tail of the field.

Trying to keep pace with the CSR Garage No. 52, Carney would have to let traffic work to his advantage in order to run down Blake Hahn. Working past the race's halfway point, Hahn found himself mired behind slower cars. Stuck on the bottom of the Springfield Raceway, the rolling roadblock was just what Carney needed.

With Hahn's advantage dwindling, Carney's run for the lead came as the field worked to the final five laps. Working Lap 21, Carney stuck the No. 4j to the top and to the lead. Searching the track for lines to run, Hahn found rubber. Going three wide though traffic for the lead, Carney kept just enough momentum to hold off the Lucas Oil No. 52.

Caution the final lap, Hahn's night nearly ended as Chance Morton spun directing in front of the leaders. On the brakes, Hahn did catch the Right Rear of the No. 7m, but was able to continue rolling. Trying for the lead on the restart, Carney would not be denied his sixth win of the 2016 season in his first trip to the Springfield oval.

Challenged off the final turn by Jonathan Cornell for the runner-up spot, Hahn was able to hold the position for his second podium finish of the weekend. Jonathan Cornell, who was also the night's Tiger Towing High Point Driver of the Night, completed the night's podium. Brandon Hanks came from seventh to fourth with Mitchell Moore rounding out the top-five.

Cody Baker was sixth with Mickey Walker seventh from 11th. Jason McDougal crossed eighth with Jay Russell and Steven Russell making up the top-ten.

The Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps sees action again on Friday, April 29 at the Callaway Raceway in Fulton, Mo. The American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products joins up with the Warrior Region on Saturday, May 7 at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Kyle Bellm Wins A Thriller With ASCS Red River At Humboldt Speedway

HUMBOLDT, Kan. (April 22,2016) A win was just what the doctor ordered for Kyle Bellm, as the "Nixa Nightmare" was unstoppable against the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products in the series inaugural visit to the Humboldt Speedway.

Taking off from the front row, Bellm had little breathing room as Kansas' shoe Jeremy Campbell stalked the No. 14k in the early laps. Having to contend with the hard charging No. 52 of Blake Hahn following a restart on Lap 5, Campbell fell to third as Hahn set his sights on Bellm for the lead.

Closing in on the RAMS No. 14k as the leaders found the tail of the field, the pair began their game of Cat and Mouse with Hahn sliding his way into the lead on Lap 14 off the second turn but it was short lived as Hahn spun the following lap; nearly collecting Bellm who just barely tagged the No. 52 on the way around.

Able to keep the car rolling, the pair had such an advantage that Hahn was still in second despite the spin. Rapidly closing the gap, Hahn again spun in turns one and two with Jeremy Campbell this time able to take over the runner-up spot as the race neared the final five laps. As the chaos went on for second, the No. 14k of Bellm was able to run to the night's $2,000 score by 1.199 seconds.

Jeremy Campbell crossed second with Blake Hahn holding on for third. Brandon Hanks crossed fourth with Jonathan Cornell in the VKCC No. 28 completing the top-five.

Coming from the B-Main, the Bobby Sparks Racing No. 91 of Steven Russell charged from 17th to sixth with Cody Baker seventh. Alex Sewell was eighth with Jason McDougal crossing ninth in his first ASCS start. Oklahoma's Mickey Walker rounded out the top-ten.

ASCS Warrior Region Fires Off Sunday at Sedalia's Missouri State Fair Speedway
TULSA, Okla. (April 11, 2016) Set to kick off the 2016 season, the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs goes racing under the afternoon Sun on April 17 with the $5,000 to win Spring Fling presented by Peak Sport and Spine at Sedalia's Missouri State Fair Speedway.

With Hot Laps at 1:00 P.M., racing is scheduled to get underway at 2:00 P.M. (CT) at the "Historic Half Mile" as the Lucas Oil MLRA Late Models will join the mix with their own $5,000 to win feature event.

Seeing the return of Sprint Car racing in 2015 with the Casey's General Store High Roller Classic, after an almost three year absence, this weekend's Sunday showdown is the first of seven nights of ASCS competition at the famed Missouri oval in 2016. Since 1998, there have been a dozen nights of ASCS competition at the Sedalia oval.

Coming into the 2016 season, Jonathan Cornell is the defending champion of the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs the past four years running. The local hotshoe is a favorite to win, but will have stiff competition as some of the midwest's top drivers are expected for their shot at the $5,000 winner's prize.

ASCS Red River Heads For Creek County Speedway and Super Bowl Speedway
TULSA, Okla. (April 4, 2016) Kicking off a full lineup of events in the month of April, the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products will see action in the Sooner and Lone Star states this weekend with stops at the Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. on Friday, April 8 and the Super Bowl Speedway in Greenville, Texas on Saturday, April 9.

The first regional showing of the year at both facilities, the Creek County Speedway has seen a multitude of ASCS Regional events over the years with the former ASCS Sooner Region. In the Red River Region's most recent visit on July 17, 2015 the Friday night battle went to Broken Arrow's Alex Sewell. The Region's only other visit on April 10, 2015 went to Johnny Herrera.

Seeing the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products for the first time this past season, Washington's Seth Bergman rode the top-side of the quarter-mile Super Bowl Speedway to victory on April 11, 2015.

John Carney II Sweeps $5,000 To Win ASCS Southwest Shootout

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (April 2, 2016) In a festival of slide jobs at the Southern New Mexico Speedway, El Paso's John Carney II swept the weekend with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region to pocket $5,000 in the 25 lap American Linen and Supply ASCS Southwest Shootout.

Red after the first lap for Royal Jones, who was able to walk away, Carney rolled second as Johnny Herrera showed the way. Caution on Lap 3, the restart saw the John James No. 4j take over the lead with a slide job through turns one and two, only to lose the top spot the following lap to Logan Forler.

Finding the tail of the field by Lap 10, Forler and Carney began a game of Cat and Mouse. Using lapped cars as picks, the pair swapped slide jobs at all ends of the Southern New Mexico Speedway.

Able to continually beating out the No. 4j to the line after several hair raising moves through traffic, Carney finally killed the momentum of Forler's No. 2L on Lap 18 to take over the race lead. Still picking their way through the field, the closing laps saw Carney able to gain some breathing room in route to the $5,000 score.

Logan Forler held on to second with Johnny Herrera holding onto third after battling several laps with the No. 17 of Josh Baughman who came from ninth to fourth. Wes Wofford rounded out the top-five.

Rick Ziehl was sixth with Kyle McCutcheon seventh from 13th. Colton Hardy, Bob Ream, Jr., and R.J. Johnson from 17th completed the top-ten as the night's SpeedMart Hard Charger of the night.

The Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region returns to competition on Saturday, April 16 at the Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, Ariz. For more information on the Canyon Speedway Park, log onto http://www.canyonspeedwaypark.com.

John Carney II Snags ASCS Southwest Shootout Prelim Victory

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (April 1, 2016) Jumping in the John James owned No. 4j, El Paso's John Carney II picked up his third overall A-Feature victory in 2016, and his second career win with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region at the Southern New Mexico Speedway in the ASCS Southwest Sprint Car Shootout.

Battling the better part of the race with Logan Forler, the duo traded the lead on Lap 14 with Forler stealing it away off the exit of turn-two. Skipping through the cushion in turn-three, Carney turned the car down the track to keep his night's record of laps led perfect.

Taking several shots on late race restarts, Forler was unable to keep pace with the No. 4j, settling for the runner-up spot.

Coming from eighth, Johnny Herrera was in the mix for the win as well in the latter part of the race. Rolling low, the No. 45x crossed third with Rick Ziehl taking the night's final transfer spot into Saturday's $5,000 to win A-Feature event and in doing so, takes over the series points lead.

Arizona's Colton Hardy rounded out the night's top-five.

From 18th, Wes Wofford came up to finish sixth with R.J. Johnson in tow. Kyle McCutcheon was eighth with Bob Ream, Jr. ninth. After spinning on Lap 11, Lorne Wofford rebounded to finish out the top-ten.

Imperial leads the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region by a slim five markers over Bob Ream, Jr. Imperial, with top-fives in each of the season's first three events in Arizona will be looking to extend his advantage over not only Ream, but eight time ASCS Southwest Regional Champion, Rick Ziehl, who has jumped third in tour standings. Off the lead by only 16 points, the Southern New Mexico Speedway is Ziehl's home track.

Ryan Linder currently holds fourth with three top-tens to his name in 2016. Linder placed fourth in the series visit in 2016. Casey Buckman currently rounds out the top-five in tour standings.

Arizona's R.J. Johnson hold the sixth position with Colton Hardy, just off his first ASCS Regional victory at the Arizona Speedway, in seventh. Lance Norick holds eighth with Jeremy McCune and Logan Forler completing the top-ten.

This weekend's ASCS Southwest Sprint Car Shootout is presented by American Linen and Uniform Supply of Las Cruces. Both nights, gates open at 5:00 P.M. with races at 7:45 P.M. (MDT).

Josh Baughman Breaks Through at Bronco Raceway Park with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour
CLEVELAND, Texas (March 26, 2016) Mark Saturday night's A-Feature down as retribution, as Odessa's Josh Baughman was the class of the field at the Bronco Raceway Park; leading start to finish for his first Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network National Tour victory.

In Baughman's 41st career Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour A-Feature start, the Texas driver becomes the 131st different winner in Lucas Oil ASCS National competition, and is the second first time winner in as many races, joining Brandon Hanks on a first winner's weekend.

"Man you know, we've busted our butts for this one. I feel like it's been a long time coming and the saying is 'you must lose one, before you can win one' and I felt like we lost last night on my part, and all we can do is redeem ourselves," said Baughman of the victory. "My guys busted their butts today rebuilding this car. This is the same car we wrecked last night going for the win there in Paige. I just can't say enough about the sponsors that help get us here, just everybody on this car plus today is my Dad's Birthday, so this one's for my Dad. Without him, we wouldn't be here. He's never given up on us not matter what."

Losing the drag race to Aaron Reutzel on the initial start, the caution brought the field to a complete restart with Baughman taking advantage to lead the way.

Finding traffic on Lap 5, the field ran all grooves, allowing Reutzel's No. 87 to close a straightaway gap to a handful of car lengths. Able to keep the defending Lucas Oil ASCS Champion at bay, Josh put a trio of lapped cars between himself and Aaron before the caution flew on Lap 13 for Jacob Lucas.

Going red on Lap 16, it was very little time after the race resumed that Josh was again mired in traffic. Finding relief on Lap 24 as the caution lights blinked on, Josh was untouchable on the restart winning by well over a straightaway. The win moved Josh to ninth in driver points.

Despite some post-race fireworks, Aaron Reutzel garnered his first podium finish of the season, and in doing so moved the Dissolvalloy No. 87 to eighth in tour standings. After a tumultuous start to his season, Reutzel commented on his runner up finish saying, "That was definitely a win for us there. I had that red and I kind of messed myself up a little and I just needed one or two laps to get going and I had two lapped cars that I think forgot they were lapped - I don't know what the deal was there, but I can't thank by guys enough."

The highest finishing driver with the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region presented by Southern Trailer Works, Channin Tankersley parked the G3 Boats No. 14 on the final podium step.

"We really needed it," said Tankersley of his run from ninth to third. "We had a bad crash last week, and then last night didn't go real great. I was really bummed out, but this definitely turns our weekend around. We had good momentum all night, we went forward, and I can't think this team enough for sticking with me."

After biking the car on the opening laps, and nearly tagging the wall, New Mexico's Johnny Herrera came back to finish fourth and in doing so, moved the MVT No. 45x back to second in tour standings, only seven points away from new leader, Matt Covington, who completed the top-five in the A-Rock Materials No. 95.

Ray Allen Kulhanek came from 14th to sixth with Scottie McDonald seventh. Tommy Bryant was the night's Hard Charger coming from 22nd to eighth with J.J. Simmons ninth. Logan Forler rounded out the top-ten.

Seeing a field of 34 drivers for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour's first visit to the Bronco Raceway Park, four Heat Races went to J.J. Simmons, Dustin Gates, Scottie McDonald, and Johnny Herrera. The night's B-Feature was won by Blake Hahn. A regional provisional was awarded to John Pate.

The ASCS Gulf South Region saw high points going to Channin Tankersley. Ray Allen Kulhanek earned second place points and is tied with Scottie McDonald for the series lead. McDonald earned third place points with Tommy Bryan and J.J. Simmons competing the list of top-five point earners.

The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is scheduled to see action again at the Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. on Saturday, April 2 for the Eagle Motorsports Rock N' Roll 50 presented by TBJ Promotions.

Brandon Hanks Notches First Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour Win at Cotton Bowl Speedway
PAIGE, Texas (March 25, 2016) There will be celebratory Ice Cream in Texas as Tennessee's Brandon Hanks made his 47th career Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour A-Feature start a memorable one, parking the David Smith Racing No. 84 in Victory Lane at the Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige, Texas.


Certainly a "Good Friday" to remember, the 20 year old driver was in tears as he came out of his No. 84 machine, "I just don't know what to say, this is unbelievable. Oh my God, we've come a long way," said Hanks. "My last win was in November, 2012 at my home racetrack. We work so hard. I work two jobs. We're farmers and I Powder Coat. I work all week long to do what I love to do and God has put me through so many trials, and it's made me who I am, and my family who we are. This is what I love to do and I just can't thank God enough. He's placed everything perfect for me, and I knew something big was coming. I'm just at a loss for words right now."

Gridding the field second, Hanks played the part of the hunter as pole sitter, Josh Baughman, shot out to the lead. Finding traffic in only a matter of laps, the Fischer Body Shop No. 17 railed the top of the Cotton Bowl Speedway.

Caution on Lap 8 for Johnny Herrera whose engine expired under the bonnet of the MVT No. 45x, the caution was quick to return on Lap 9 for Seth Bergman who slowed in turn three. Seth went to the work area with damage to the nose wing of the car, but was not able to beat the green flag to resume the feature event.

Taking off to another commanding lead, traffic was the topic of the race. Slowed by the back markers, Baughman's lead was under fire in a matter of laps. Working Lap 16, Hanks was on the back bumper of Baughman for the top spot. Following in Josh's tire tracks, the pair broke rank on Lap 18; going slide for slide at both ends of the three-eighths mile oval.

Taking over the point on Lap 19, Hanks pulled away slightly, but the lead would be short lived as the pair began throwing wicked slide jobs. Over and over, the pair battled around slower cars, exchange the lead as much as three times a lap before the red flew on Lap 22 for Tommy Bryant who flipped off turn two. Tommy was okay.

Resuming with eight laps to run, Hanks kept the No. 17 at bay on the restart, but again, traffic was only a matter of time as the pair set a torrid pace around the Texas oval.

On the back of the field with five laps to run, Josh worked every angle; trying to find a way back to the lead. To the white flag, Baughman was full out with victory in sight, but it was not to be as the No. 17 slammed the concrete exiting turn two with the right side tires; sending Josh end over end several times. Josh was able to walk away from the crash.

Putting the Keith Dobbs Motorsports No. 15h of Sam Hafertepe, Jr. to the back bumper of the No. 84, Brandon held off any last lap charges, claiming victory by a margin of 1.885 seconds.

"We were really good early when we could work the middle a little bit, but when we got stuck on the top we just didn't have anything for those guys. They were better than us but hats off to those guys; they did a hell of a job. It's awesome for Brandon [Hanks] to get his first win here. I know how it feels. It's a pretty good feeling so hopefully those guys enjoy that tonight, and we'll work on this thing a little bit harder and try to get where they are tomorrow night," said Hafertepe who advanced to third from seventh in tour standings, 17 points away from the lead.

After suffering a DNF this past Saturday at the Devil's Bowl, Travis Rilat brought the Shoptheboss.com No. 29 home third. Talking about the race, Travis said, "This thing here, it was just on the edge. It's real close to being on the wall or in the wall but it was a good track tonight. We had a good time."

Scottie McDonald crossed fourth with Brad Loyet from 15th to complete the top-five.
Hunting around in the top-five for most of the night, Oklahoma's Wayne Johnson ended up sixth in the City Vending No. 2c, and in doing so has taken over the lead in the National Tour driver standings. Matt Covington was seventh from 16th and moved to second in points, 15 markers behind Johnson. Garnering Hard Charger on the night, Illinois' Steven Russell came from 20th to eight with Ray Allen Kulhanek from 21st to ninth. Morgan Turpen completed the top-ten.

A field of 33 drivers made their way into the Cotton Bowl Speedway with four Heat Races going to Brandon Hanks, Terry Gray, Wayne Johnson, and Travis Rilat. The night's B-Feature was won by Logan Forler who ended up 12th in the A-Feature. Following a crash in his Heat Race, Blake Hahn took a provisional into the A-Feature. John Pate was the regional provisional based on 100% attendance in 2015 with the Gulf South Region.

The opening night for the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region presented by Southern Trailer Works, Scottie McDonald walked out as the high point earner with the region followed by Ray Allen Kulhanek, Michal McNeil, Zane Lawrence, and Tommy Bryant.

The Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network returns to action on Saturday, March 26, 2016 at the Bronco Raceway Park in Cleveland, Texas. The debut event for the National Tour gets underway at 7:00 P.M. (CT).

Lucas Oil ASCS Two-Steps Into Cotton Bowl Speedway and Bronco Raceway Park This Weekend
TULSA, Okla. (March 21, 2016) The season opening Texas swing for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network continues with two brand new facilities to the National Tour with the Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige, Texas set for action Friday, March 25 followed by the Bronco Raceway Park in Cleveland, Texas on Saturday, March 26.

Paired with the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS presented by Southern Trailer Works, the weekend will serve as the 2016 season opener for the south Texas based region. Kevin Ramey is the series defending champion.

Looking at the Cotton Bowl Speedway, the Paige, Texas oval as seen ASCS Gulf South Regional action since 2013 with Brandon Berryman taking the first regional victory on July 4, 2013. In all, three nights have been contested with the Gulf South Region at the Cotton Bowl Speedway with Johnny Herrera (5/23/2014) and Seth Bergman (8/22/2015) also notching wins at the three-eighths mile oval.

Formerly known as 105 Speedway, the Bronco Raceway Park will see the return for the Gulf South Region for the first time to the quarter-mile since 2010. First appearing in 2007, Scottie McDonald grabbed the win in the series debut on July 28. In all, the Gulf South Region has seen eight nights in Cleveland, Texas.

Taking in two of the three scheduled nights this past weekend at the Heart O' Texas Speedway and Devil's Bowl Speedway, series veterans Johnny Herrera and Wayne Johnson posted their first wins of the 2016 season with Herrera topping the Heart O' Texas, and Johnson the Devil's Bowl. The pair are separated by three points in driver standings going into this weekend's double-header.


With a pair of top-fives to start off the season, Matt Covington holds third only 15 points removed from the lead with Logan Forler fourth and Blake Hahn fifth in tour standings. ASCS Gulf South Regular, Tommy Bryant, currently holds sixth with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. rebounding in a big way after mechanical problems at the Heart O' Texas Speedway. Placing third at the Devil's Bowl, the Texas native jumped from 15th in points to seventh.

Seth Bergman was another driver who had to play catchup at the Devil's Bowl after contact with Josh Baughman at Waco sent the No. 23 flipping. Seth's runner up in Mesquite moved him from 22nd to eighth.

Ninth is currently held by Brad Loyet who posted a pair of top-ten runs this past weekend with Kyle Bellm currently rounding out the top-ten. Looking for a rebound this weekend, 2015 Lucas Oil ASCS Champion, Aaron Reutzel, is currently 14th with Josh Baughman and Steven Russell 17th and 18th going into the weekend.

Friday, March 25 at the Cotton Bowl Speedway will get underway at 8:00 P.M. (CT). Tickets are $20 for adults with kids 11-15 admitted for only $10. Kids 10 years and younger get into the grandstands for free. For more information, log onto http://www.cottonbowlspeedway.com.

Wayne Johnson Claims Devil’s Bowl Spring Nationals Victory
 

MESQUITE, Texas (March 19, 2016) It didn’t take long for Wayne Johnson to find Victory Lane in 2016 with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, parking the City Vending No. 2c at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway in the 43rd running of the Devil’s Bowl Spring Nationals.

The Devil’s Bowl score is Johnson’s 46th career Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network victory, moving the Oklahoma City native to third in the series all time win list. The win is Johnson’s ninth at the Devil’s Bowl in ASCS National competition.

The win also moves Wayne Johnson within three markers of Johnny Herrera for the series points lead.

“Todd and Kelly definitely gave me a great opportunity here. We ran the last five races last year experimenting for this year, and thank God they did because it really helped me this year knowing what kind of racecars we were going to use and what kind of parts to be able to tune this thing,” said Johnson on the Devil’s Bowl front stretch. “This racetrack is basically my home racetrack, and I have a lot of good notes on this track and it seems like here and Knoxville, no matter what year it is, or what time it is, we always go back to exactly what we always do, and it works.”

Taking off from the outside of the front row, Johnson wasted no time taking the top spot from pole sitter, Travis Rilat. Caution with a single lap in the books for Kade Morton, the race resumed with Johnson taking off to a sizable lead with John Carney II in tow before mechanical problems sidelined the No. 74b; giving Johnson over three seconds over Brad Loyet who was running third at the time.

Caution working Lap 13, the red followed on the restart for Channin Tankersley.

Rolling back to Lap 12 as the last fully completed lap, Johnson was off like a shot as Seth Bergman took over the runner-up spot with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. in tow. Keeping within a 1.5 second margin, slower traffic brought the No. 2c to Bergman’s front bumper as the red flew for Zane Lawrence who caught fire off the top of turn one. Zane was okay.

Looking like victory was free and clear, slower traffic stood to possibly tell a different tale. With the white flag out, Johnson ran to the back of a pair of slower cars. Going three wide into the first two turns, the slide across the Devil’s Bowl surface scrubbed off his momentum. Railing the top, Seth Bergman closed tremendously. With a full head of steam, Seth set for the slide, but traffic giveth, and traffic taketh away, as the top cleared and Wayne Johnson ran to victory.

Taking his 20th career podium finish, Seth Berman crossed 0.813 second behind Johnson.

“Wayne’s a smart racer, and he has a lot of laps around here and I was wanting to slide him on that restart, but he got me a little bit balled on my slider, and I knew that was going to be my only real chance without doing anything stupid and I wasn’t going to dirty him,” said Seth of the run. “I tried getting to him again in traffic and the way the lapped cars played out, it just kind of kept me a bay.”

Coming from eighth, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. took the final podium step.

Asked about the run, Sam replied, “Our bleeders were just killing us. We were way to low on pressure on the restarts but at the beginning of the race we were really good and when we got to traffic like that, it just locked me into one spot. I tried the bottom, and I made it stick, but the top was too good tonight and Wayne’s pretty damn good here. It seem like between me and him, we usually win here plus it’s fun racing with him out here.”

Matt Covington was fourth with Johnny Herrera coming from 11th to complete the top-five.

Blake Hahn was sixth followed by Kyle Bellm from 13th. Brad Loyet, after running to second, ended up eighth with Logan Forler from 22nd to ninth. Chance Morton followed from 21st to complete the top-ten.

The first night under the new Heat/Qualifier format with 47 drivers checking in, five Heats went to Matt Covington, Kade Morton, Travis Rilat, Blake Hahn, and Seth Berman. Taking the Top 32 in Passing Points to four Qualifiers, those were topped by Travis Rilat, Wayne Johnson, Sam Hafertepe, Jr, and John Carney II. B-Features were topped by Zane Lawrence and Tommy Bryant. A points based provisional was used by Aaron Reutzel.

The Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network joins with the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region presented by Southern Trailer Works on Friday, March 25 at the Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige, Texas and the Bronco Raceway Park on Saturday, March 26.

Johnny Herrera Storms To Season Opening Win With The Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour
WACO, Texas (March 17, 2016) The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network opened the 2016 season with the series debut at the Heart O' Texas Speedway and New Mexico's Johnny Herrera rough riding the highline for 14th career National Tour triumph.

"This is incredible," said Herrera of this season opening victory. "All winter, we just looked forward to coming and racing. We did run a few races previous to this and kind of struggled, but to come back to my grassroots, ASCS racing, I tell you; it's just good to start off on the right foot. We got new Maxim Chassis this year. We switched to the "Big Max" design and so far, so good."

Chasing Tommy Bryant down the back stretch of the opening lap, the No. 28 saw his Sawblade.com entry nearly get out from under him off the fourth turn, opening the door for Herrera to take the lead. Going red working Lap 2, the No. 23 of Seth Bergman went upside down. He was okay, but unable to return.

Setting a torrid pace on the restart, Herrera was quick to find slower traffic while still opening up a nearly a straightaway advantage over Indiana's Parker Price-Miller. Slowed by caution on Lap 14, the cautions followed in droves afterwards with several drivers spinning in the closing laps.

Using slower cars as picks, Miller battled hard with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. giving up the position on Lap 23 to the No. 15h. Miller mounted a huge charge around the slower car of Steven Russell off the fourth turn, only to make contact with the Right Front of Russell's No. 91, flattening the Left Rear of the Indy Race Parts No. 2. Sam also received damage to the Left Front, and went to the work area. Hafertepe was able to return, but damage again on the front end on Lap 27 ended his night.

In the chaos of slower cars, Logan Forler, running well on the bottom groove, carefully brought his Steve Forler Trucking No. 2L into the runner-up spot. Working the hub of the Heart O' Texas Speedway, Logan gave it all he had on the race's final restart with three go to, but would not be able to hang with the No. 45x.

"On that restart I was going to give it all I had but he kind of got me coming off of four and I just had nothing for him. At that point, it was over, but Johnny and I are really good friends and I'm happy for him," said Forler of the last chance at the lead. "It's good to come out here and run good with these guys. It's a tough group, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the year."

Tommy Bryant posted his first career podium finish in National Tour competition, despite having mechanical issues the latter part of the event.

Asked about the opening lap pass, Bryant replied, "The track was a little rough but it had some slick spots, and I just didn't pedal the car very good coming off of four, but all in all, a good night but I did have a fuel line break with about 10 laps to go, so I'm just covered in fuel. My whole leg is cold and wet. Probably the dumbest thing I've done in my career, but we got a good finish tonight and we're proud of that."

Coming from ninth, Matt Covington wrestled his way to fourth in the A-Rock Material No. 95, with Blake Hahn recovering from an early spin to place the Lucas Oil No. 52 fifth despite the front end being knocked back on the right side.

Wayne Johnson claimed sixth with Aaron Reutzel seventh after starting 13th. Terry Gray eighth was followed by team mate Morgan Turpen, who was the evening's Hard Charger from 19th to ninth. Brad Loyet was the first driver a lap down in tenth.

Overall, 26 drivers took part in the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network's opening night. Four Heat Races went to Logan Forler, Seth Bergman, Sam Hafertepe, Jr., and Wayne Johnson. The night's B-Feature was topped by Kyle Bellm. No provisionals were taken into the A-Feature.

Arizona Speedway Next for Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region
TULSA, Okla. (March 14, 2016) Onward to round three for the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region and on the docket is the Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, Ariz. on Saturday, March 19.


First appearing on the Southwest Regional lineup in 2012, Rick Ziehl picked up the win in the inaugural visit on September 29, 2012. Looking for his ninth consecutive title, Ziehl's season is off to a rocky start, as the Las Cruces, N.M. native currently sits seventh in tour standings with a pair of top-ten finishes in the season's first two outings. Ziehl last topped action at the Arizona oval in 2013.

Having won the first two nights of the season, Washington's Logan Forler leads, but has plans in Texas with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour this weekend, thus, opening the door for Arizona's J.T. Imperial to take over the series points lead.

Posting two top-fives' in as many starts, the Mesa, Arizona shoe holds a small 10 point margin over Bob Ream, Jr, and New Mexico's Wes Wofford who are tied for the bronze step going into this Saturday's festivities. Ream holds the most Arizona Speedway wins with four since 2014.

Donning wings the past two weekends with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region, Phoenix's R.J. Johnson currently rounds out the top-five in tour standings.

Ryan Linder holds sixth. Ziehl seventh sits a point ahead of James Mosher with Lance Norick, a winner on March 17, 2014, and Lorne Wofford making up the top-ten. Wofford topped the season's final race in 2015 at the Arizona Speedway.

Fourteen events contested since 2012, eight drivers have made their way to Victory Lane at the Arizona Speedway.


Saturday, March 19 at the Arizona Speedway will see action getting underway at 7:00 P.M. (MST) with the sixth annual Frank Soboski Memorial. Saturday is also the kick off for the 2016 regular season at the Arizona Speedway and will include Modifieds, Pure Stocks, Bombers, and Powder Puff. The Arizona Speedway is located at 47346 N Ironwood Rd. Queen Creek, AZ 85142. For more information, contact the Arizona Speedway by phone at (480) 926-6688 or log onto http://www.arizonaspeedway.net.

The 2016 season for the ASCS Southwest Region is the ninth year of competition throughout Arizona, New Mexico, and west Texas. The ASCS Southwest Region is powered by Carlyle Tools, Hoosier Tires, Brodix, Team Lucas, and SpeedMart.

Since 1994, a total of 29 drivers have won at least one Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event at the Devil's Bowl Speedway. Gary Wright posted 20 wins before retiring in 2012 from the National Tour, and is the all-time winningest driver at the Devil's Bowl in ASCS action.

Logan Forler Tops Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region at Canyon Speedway Park

PEORIA, Ariz. (March 12, 2016) Claiming his second win in as many races with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region in 2016, Washington’s Logan Forler held off hard charging Dusty Zomer at the Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, Ariz.

Topping a roster of 24 drivers at Canyon Speedway Park, Forler led flag-to-flag in the Steve Forler Trucking No. 2L for his seventh career win with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region. Coming from 11th to second, Zomer, in the Buffalo Wild Wings No. 82, was joined by Arizona's J.T. Imperial on the podium who fought his way up from seventh.

Clawing from 16th, New Mexico’s Wes Wofford was the night’s SpeedMart, Inc. Hard Charger with a fourth place run. Bolting wings on his normally wingless No. 51 machine, Arizona’s R.J. Johnson completed the top five from 13th.

After having trouble on the start, Rick Ziehl rebounded to sixth with Lance Norick from 19th to seventh. Ryan Linder finished eighth with Bob Ream, Jr. ninth. Jesse Baker from 18th completed the top-ten.

The night’s four non-transfer drivers in the B-Feature each got a $25 bonus thanks to Beaver Stripes.

Up next for the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region is the Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, Ariz. on Saturday, March 19. This is the season's first trip to the Arizona Speedway. More information can be found at http://arizonaspeedway.net.

Lucas Oil ASCS Opener at Creek County Speedway Rained Out

TULSA, Okla. (March 9, 2016) Following a full day of rain on Tuesday that has saturated the grounds of the Creek Count Speedway, along with a worsening forecast for the weekend andalmost no sun to help dry things out, the Sooner State Showdown scheduled for March 11-12, 2016 has been called off.

"It was looking better, but the forecast just keeps getting worse and with the rain we've already had, it would be a mess. We hate to cancel the race, but with current conditions and some of the drivers coming from as far as Arizona and Montana to race this weekend, we didn't want to get all these teams to get here just to watch it rain," said ASCS National Director, Matt Ward.

At this time, there is no talk of a make-up date. Any pre-purchased tickets from the ASCS website will be refunded.

The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will look to get things rolling on their 25th season on Thursday, March 17 at the series debut at the Heart O' Texas Speedway in Waco, Texas. More information on the Waco oval can be found online at http://www.heartotexspeedway.com.

ASCS Gulf South Set For 2016 Opener at GTRP and Battleground
TULSA, Okla. (March 8, 2016) The Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region presented by Southern Trailer Works has been dormant log enough, as the green flag is set to fly for the first time in 2016 with a Texas double header this Friday, March 11 at the Golden Triangle Raceway Park in Beaumont, Texas and Saturday, March 12 at the Battleground Speedway in Highlands, Texas.


Marking the 15th year of touring for the ASCS Gulf South Region, 2016 marks the ninth time in as many years the Golden Triangle Raceway Park has opened the ASCS Gulf South Region's season. Over the past eight years, seven different drivers have opened up the season with a win. Gary Wright (2009 and 2010) is the only driver to repeat in the season opening event.

A high-banked, one-third mile oval just outside Beaumont, Texas this Friday's appearance is the first of three on the season, including the 2016 finale on September 4.

In stark contrast to the Golden Triangle Raceway Park, a short trip to Highlands, Texas finds the Battleground Speedway. Ultra high-banked, and measuring just shy of four-tenths of a mile, the Battleground Speedway has been a part of the Gulf South's lineup since 2003. The series last appearance at the Battleground Speedway saw Sam Hafertepe, Jr. in Victory Lane while Kevin Ramey clinched the Championship.

Friday, March 11 at the Golden Triangle Raceway Park will get underway at 7:45 P.M. (CT) and will include Jr. Mini Stocks, Factory Stocks, Street Stocks, and Limited Modifieds. For more information on the Golden Triangle Raceway Park, log onto http://www.grtpbmt.com or call (409) 752-RACE (7223).

"Roger Toops and his wife, Kim, do a great job. They've really built a great series and we're proud to have them and look forward to what the partnership with Carlyle Tools will do for the drivers in our Southwest Region."

Stretching from West Texas to Arizona, the ASCS Southwest Region is in its ninth season of competition. Rick Ziehl has been the dominating force within the region the past eight years, having never lost a series championship.

American Sprint Car Series announces partnership with Big Ant Dirt Track Racing on PlayStation4, Xbox One and PC.
TULSA, Okla. (February 29, 2016) Have you ever wanted to race the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour, but that whole travel thing just didn't fit in your budget? Well, fans will be one step closer to living the thrill of ASCS racing, as the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series has partnered with Big Ant Studios to help bring the all new Dirt Track Racing game for PlayStation4, Xbox One, and PC to life.

Big Ant Studio Project Lead, Charles Henden, explained, "The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Dirt Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will be officially featured in a new racing game for PlayStation4, XboxOne and PC. Big Ant Studios is crowd-funding this upcoming title with support from the ASCS. Click on http://www.bigantdirt.com to secure your copy, and get ready to take on the ASCS championship at home."

"We're excited about being a part of this project. Dirt Track racing needs to attract a younger fan base, and this a great step in that direction," said ASCS Vice President, Donna Hahn-Harris. "We've had fans reaching out to us since the announcement was made about this game, and after looking at it, I think this will be great for the sport because the crowd-funding gives drivers, teams, and tracks a way to actually be featured in the game. For a sponsor, that is exposure you can't turn down."

Michael Miller Gearing Up For Title Defense with ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints

TULSA, Okla. (February 29, 2016) Flying under the ASCS banner for the first time, the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints will open their 2016 lineup with a pair of nights this weekend in Mississippi and Alabama.

Pascagoula, Miss. driver, Michael Miller, enters the weekend as the defending champion of the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints. Already a two time champion, having won his first in 2013, Miller will pilot Professional Auto Collison/KTB Motorsports, Dynotech powered No. 4m.

"This is going to be a strong thing to try and defend. We're going to have to work twice as hard now with bringing the ASCS brand over here. We're going to get drivers like Seth Bergman, Matt Covington, Blake Hahn; just the cream of the crop in my backyard and I'm really going to have to do my homework because those guys are so up to speed in the 360cid world," said Miller of having to defending his 2015 championship under the new banner.

One of three dates on the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints Tour in 2016, the Hattiesburg Speedway opens the season on Friday, March 4. Asked about the Mississippi oval, Miller replied, "Hattiesburg is a short track with good banking. We had some new owners come on-board a couple years ago, and the guy's and old school racer, and wants to see two grooves of racing, and he's brought that to us."

Earning a trio of podiums at the Mississippi oval in 2015, Miller last visited Victory Lane at Hattiesburg on August 22, 2014.

A regular stop on the ASCS/SOS lineup since the series inception in 2013, the Deep South Speedway in Loxley, Ala. is pretty much the exact opposite of Hattiesburg. At nearly four-tenths of a mile, Miller, who won at Deep South on August 1, 2015, explained that the track demands the driver to be smooth. "Loxley has almost 20 degrees of banking and it is a hammer down, elbows up, sit up in the seat track. It's kind of like the Mini Sprint and Go Kart days where you just have to be smooth on the wheel."

Expecting a strong field of drivers for the weekend double-header, Friday, March 4 at the Hattiesburg Speedway will see gates opening at 5:00 P.M. with Hot Laps getting underway at 7:00 P.M. (CT) and will include Pure Stocks, Outlaw Street, NeSmith Street Stocks, Modifieds, and NeSmith Crate Late Models. The Hattiesburg Speedway is located at 4663 Hwy 49 South in Hattiesburg. For more information, log onto http://www.hattiesburgspeedway.net.

Saturday, March 5 at the Deep South Speedway will open at 5:00 P.M. with Hot Laps at 6:00 P.M. (CT). The night's card will include Modifieds, Outlaw Street, Hobby Stocks, Pure Stocks, and Stingers. Deep South Speedway is located at 32971 AL-59 in Loxley, Ala. For more information, log onto http://www.deepsouthspeedway.net.

The ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints is powered by Lucas Oil, Brodix, Schoenfeld, Hoosier Tire, and Team Lucas.

One of six Regional Tours with the American Sprint Car Series in 2016, more information on the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints can be found online at http://www.ascsracing.com. Fans can also follow the series on Facebook.

The final step; winning the final night of the Hockett/McMillin Memorial at the "Diamond of Dirt Tracks" at the Lucas Oil Speedway.

"We wanted to tie together three big events, that are easy for drivers to get to and with Knoxville announcing an increased payout, plus the High Roller going to $15,000 to win, and the Hockett/McMillin going to three days and $10,000 to win, they made the choice of events easy, plus, it just adds to the excitement that these events are already building," said ASCS National Coordinator, Matt Ward. "We can't thank Lucas Oil enough for their continued support of ASCS and the drivers in making it possible to put together the Triple Crown."

Matt Covington Gearing Up For 2016 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour
TULSA, Okla. (February 25, 2016) Continuing to build on his success since going back on the road in 2014 with the National Tour, Matt Covington is primed and ready for another run at the title with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

Covington, who pilots the Covington Motorsports No. 95 has been behind the wheel since the age of five. Coming up from Quarter Midgets, Covington made his Sprint Car debut in 2008. Since then, Matt has scored four Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour wins, to go along with five ASCS Regional Championship in the former Sooner and Lone Star Regions.

Talking about the offseason, Covington said, "Not much has changed for this year. We do have a new crew guy working for us this year. We hired Lane Goodman, one of Mike Goodman's boys, and plan on taking him on the whole tour and we're really glad to have Jerry Graves helping us out again this year. He's excited for sure, we just need to come up with the results to match."

While the team will continue to utilize Triple X Racecars and Wesmar Racing Engines, the cars and equipment will have a new trailer to travel in, "We upgraded the trailer, and I bet teams will really want to park next to us because the LED lights on the back of this thing that light up three pit areas," chuckled Matt.

Hitting his stride in the latter half of the 2015 season, Covington has been working on himself in the off-season to continue that momentum in to the start of the 2016 season.

"It really just comes down to focus for me. I had to think back of what I did differently from the beginning of the year to the end, and it just boils down to focus. I want to start this season like I ended last season, and that's something I haven't been very good at, even over the past couple seasons and it's just a matter of keeping sharp. It takes a top level of focus to go out and compete with these guys, and I think that'll be the difference maker. There is nothing easy about this."

The Covington Motorsports team plans to run a couple nights prior to the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour going live on March 11 and 12 at the Creek County Speedway. Currently, his schedule shows stops at the Magnolia Motor Speedway with the USCS followed by the season opening weekend with the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints March 4 at the Hattiesburg Speedway and March 5 at the Deep South Speedway.

Matt would like to thank his father, Bill Covington, for the opportunity to again pilot the family No. 95 as well as his sponsors: A-Rock Materials, T&L Foundry, Winters Performance Products, ButlerBuilt Motorsports Equipment, Simpson Performance Products, Wesmar Racing Engines, Pro Shocks, Factor One Racing, Triple X Race Components, DMI, GME Nields Steerings, Schoenfeld Headers, Brodix, Allstar Performance Products, Keizer Aluminum Wheels, Eaton Industrial Coatings, and Hot Rod Powder Coating.

The 2016 season is the 25th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing across the United States for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

Josh Baughman Focused On Winning With 2016 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour

TULSA, Okla. (February 18, 2016) A regular name in the American Sprint Car Series over the past three years, running a variety of Regional and National events, Josh Baughman will take on the full Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network for the first time in 2016.

Despite the years involved, Josh is still considered a Rookie on the National Tour; putting him in the hunt for the Brodix Rookie of the Year along with Steven Russell.

"We've never really committed to a full time season. We've had quite a few ASCS National races, and this year I feel like our chances are strong. We're going to race very weekend like we have, regardless, not really worry about the points, and just go out and try to win every night," said Josh of the coming season. "I don't like points racing. I feel like it just slows you down."

From Modifieds at an early age, Josh broke into Sprint Cars while attending Odessa High School. Starting in the 305cid ranks across west Texas and southern New Mexico, Josh moved up to ASCS in 2013.

In terms of off season preparation, not much has changed for the team as Josh will again utilize the knowledge of Wayne Priddy as the head wrench on the Hollywood Blasting and Coatings No. 17. Maxim. One change is the addition of Fischer Body Shop on full time as a primary sponsor of the Hollywood Blasting and Coatings No. 17, bringing a whole new look to Baughman's car and rig with the assistance of Sean Cain and Blackbeard Designs.

"Our goal this year is to just get wins. We've had Fischer Body Shop and C.C.C. come onboard full time this year, and our goal is to get our first National Tour win, and not just one, but several and be competitive every time we pull onto the track."

Josh will look to be up to speed with events leading up to the start of the 2016 season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series, using those events to shake down the car and the team before hitting the road.

Equipment wise, Josh will utilize Maxim Chassis with Moss Racing Engines between the tubes. Along with thanking Fischer Body Shop and C.C.C. for their support in 2016, Josh would also like to thank Compression Generation Services, Beard Equipment, Hollywood Blasting & Coating, B&H Services, FK Midwest, and Octane Ink.

Fans wishing to keep up with Josh Baughman during the 2016 season can do so at http://www.joshbaughman.com as well as on Facebook and on Twitter (@Josh_Baughman17). Anyone wanting news straight to your email can email Shawn@InsideLinePromotions.com with "Baughman News" in the subject line.

The 2016 season is the 25th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing across the United States for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. The 2016 season begins at the Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. on Friday, March 11 and Saturday, March 12 with the Sooner State Showdown.

2016 Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series Rules Updated

TULSA, Okla. (February 18, 2016) The rules that govern the
American Sprint Car Series have been updated for the coming 2016 season.

Among the biggest change is the introduction of the Heat Race and Qualifier system into the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour for events with 40 cars or more in attendance. Much like the format utilized in qualifying nights with the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals, events that boast such a high car count will see the Top 32 in Heat Race passing points advance into four Qualifiers with each of those again counting for passing points. Those points will then be combined, and the Top 16 will advance into the night's A Feature. The remainder will fall into twin B Features, or a trio if car counts warrant.

The format option with Qualifiers was discussed with Owners and Drivers at the 2015 Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals with all parties supporting the move to give the driver's more options to race their way into the show.

Another change comes in the format for two night show for all of ASCS that the Top 4 lock-in drivers from the first night will draw for positions one through four, with the following night's Top 4 in Passing Points drawing for positions five through eighth. On single night shows, the draw will be for positions one through eight.

In regards to the position of the initial start, the line or cone will now be placed down from Turn 4 in order to allow the front row to be straight, and even, when they come to the start. The starting point is based on the size of the track and will be pointed out during the Driver's Meeting. This was done in order to give the drivers a more even starting surface, as well as give officials a better vantage point.

Full format rules read as follows:

Section 2 - Qualifying Procedures
(National Tour Specific, For 39 Cars or Less. Regional Tour Format Only)

Qualifying heat races will be held at all events. Lineups are determined by random pill draw. Draw is held at the close of the Driver's Meeting. It is the responsibility of the driver, or a team representative to be present for the draw. Any team that fails to draw in will be allowed to start at the tail of a Heat Race, but will receive no Passing Points. Only finishing points. No exceptions will be made (Point scale on Pg. 13).
The car count at the close of the drawing for qualifying heats will determine the number of heats to be run. As each number is drawn for a car, that number will be posted and this procedure will be repeated until a number has been drawn for each car that wishes to compete. The lowest number goes to the pole of the first heat race, the next lowest drawn number goes to the pole of the second heat, etc. Once pole position in each heat is filled, the next lowest number goes to the outside front row of the first heat, etc. If there are an uneven number of cars to equally distribute between heats, the last cars will be placed at the back of the lowest numbered heats. Any cars not represented at the drawing shall be placed at the rear of a heat race. Heat races will determine the starting position for the balance of races scheduled.
The passing point system will be used to determine starting positions in feature events (see below). The driver will receive points for passing as well as finishing position, with the eight drivers accumulating the most points from heat races redrawing for feature starting position (top point earner drawing first, second highest draws next, etc.) and the balance of the "A" Feature and "B" Feature(s) lined straight-up according to passing point totals.
On the second night, cars will lineup with the first night's lock-ins taking spots 1-4 and will redraw within those spots. The top four in passing points (that were in attendance on the first night) from the second night will occupy spots 5-8 in the A-Feature lineup and will redraw within those spots.
Any driver failing to draw for heat races or pack racing surface (when requested) will not receive passing points, but only points accumulated through his finishing position in his heat race. In the event of a tie in passing points, the driver who first earned the points shall be aligned in front of any subsequent driver earning the same number of points (tie goes to the early heat). Passing points will be figured on the actual starting position on the final parade lap.
Time Trials may be held at some shows.
A car and driver qualify as a team. Each driver can qualify only one car. No driver will be permitted to change cars after taking the green flag of his qualifying heat race. An exception to this rule will be in a two day race.
ASCS or their representative will advise drivers of the make-up of the number of heat races, main events, field maximum size and other pertinent information at the drivers meeting.
The Official lineup is when the caution lights go out on the final parade lap. In the event a car drops out of the line-up for mechanical reasons, the balance of the field shall move straight forward. The exception being if 2 cars drop out from same row, then following cars will be crisscrossed.
The start will be official only upon the starter signaling with the green flag. In the event a pace car is used, all cars shall take their proper position behind it. In the event a pace car is not used, the pole car will set the pace which shall be consistent with track conditions and as required to keep the field in formation. ASCS shall be empowered to disqualify or penalize any driver violating this rule.
A White Line or Cone will be placed off the exit of Turn-4, at a point that the first row is on the front straightaway, for all double-file starts. The field must remain even until the front row reaches the cone or line. The Flag Man will be instructed not to throw the green flag until then. No on track warnings will be given.
On the initial start, any driver who advances position prior to the starter's signal when the front row reaches the cone or line will be docked two positions at the first caution, red flag, or the end of the race; whichever comes first.
On all single file starts after one lap the restarts will start at a Cone to be placed on the front straight-away. The leader must start race from turn 4 cone and all cars must go outside of cone in the proper aligned order. Leader must set a consistent pace and cannot increase his pace before the entrance of Turn 4. Any car going inside of cone or hitting the cone will force a caution and will be placed at the rear of the field. Any car advancing position prior to the cone will be penalized a minimum of two (2) positions plus one position for each position gained over on the next caution or the end of the race depending on what comes first.
Any car requiring a second push on start or restart of race will be placed at rear. The only exception is if a driver is stopped by an ASCS official. Instructions to stop will be delivered over the RACEceiver Radio.
Any car on or near the racing surface that delays the start or restart of any race shall be penalized one lap by Officials. A work area will be designated at drivers meeting.
Alternates will not be taken to fill any vacancies that occur.
Any car not running at a reasonable racing speed may be subject to disqualification for safety reasons.
The winner of each Heat Race, the winner of any consolation feature, and the top five finishers in the A Feature are required to go to the scales. Drivers must go directly to the scales. Any driver not going directly to the scales will be disqualified. The position of the scales will be disclosed during the drivers meeting. It is the responsibility of the drivers to know and understand where and how to get to the scales to avoid any penalties.

Section 2A - Qualifying Procedures
(National Tour Specific, for 40 cars or more.)

Qualifying heat races will be held at all events. Lineups are determined by random pill draw. Draw is held at the close of the Driver's Meeting. Any driver failing to draw for heat races or pack racing surface (when requested) will not receive passing points, but only points accumulated through his finishing position in his heat race. (Point scale on Pg. 13)
The car count at the close of the drawing for qualifying heats will determine the number of heats to be run. As each number is drawn for a car, that number will be posted and this procedure will be repeated until a number has been drawn for each car that wishes to compete. The lowest number goes to the pole of the first heat race, the next lowest drawn number goes to the pole of the second heat, etc. Once pole position in each heat is filled, the next lowest number goes to the outside front row of the first heat, etc. If there are an uneven number of cars to equally distribute between heats, the last cars will be placed at the back of the lowest numbered heats. Again, any cars not represented at the drawing shall be placed at the rear of a heat race. Heat races will determine the starting position for the balance of races scheduled.
The passing point system will be used to determine lineups for four (4) Qualifying Races.
Top 32 in Passing Points from Heat Races will move into Qualifiers. Remainder will fall to the tail of the night's "B" Features. Top 16 will be inverted with the highest point earner from Heat Races starting fourth in the first Qualifier. Qualifiers will be 8 laps each. Passing Points will be utilized with the driver's total points combined with their Heat Race total. The top 16 in combined Passing Points will advance to the A-Feature. Drivers will not redraw for their starting position. Lineup is straight up by the combined Passing Point total. The remainder will fall into B-Features. Number of B-Features is dependent upon the number of cars. 40-50 cars means remaining drivers will drop into two "B" Features. 51-60 will drop into three "B" Features. Lineup will be done by passing point totals with 17th going to the pole of the first "B" Feature, 18th to the pole of the second "B" Feature, etc.
Any driver failing to draw for heat races or pack racing surface (when requested) will not receive passing points, but only points accumulated through his finishing position in his heat race. In the event of a tie in passing points, the driver who first earned the points shall be aligned in front of any subsequent driver earning the same number of points (tie goes to the early heat). Passing points will be figured on the actual starting position on the final parade lap.
Time Trials may be held at some shows.
A car and driver qualify as a team. Each driver can qualify only one car. No driver will be permitted to change cars after taking the green flag of his qualifying heat race. An exception to this rule will be in a two day race.
ASCS or their representative will advise drivers of the make-up of the number of heat races, main events, field maximum size and other pertinent information at the drivers meeting.
The Official lineup is when the caution lights go out on the final parade lap. In the event a car drops out of the line-up for mechanical reasons, the balance of the field shall move straight forward. The exception being if 2 cars drop out from same row, then following cars will be crisscrossed.
The start will be official only upon the starter signaling with the green flag. In the event a pace car is used, all cars shall take their proper position behind it. In the event a pace car is not used, the pole car will set the pace which shall be consistent with track conditions and as required to keep the field in formation. ASCS shall be empowered to disqualify or penalize any driver violating this rule.
A White Line or Cone will be placed off the exit of Turn-4, at a point that the first row is on the front straightaway, for all double-file starts. The field must remain even until the front row reaches the cone or line. The Flag Man will be instructed not to throw the green flag until then. No on track warnings will be given.
On the initial start, any driver who advances position prior to the starter's signal when the front row reaches the cone or line will be docked two positions at the first caution, red flag, or the end of the race; whichever comes first.
On all single file starts after one lap the restarts will start at a Cone to be placed on the front straight-away. The leader must start race from turn 4 cone and all cars must go outside of cone in the proper aligned order.

Any car requiring a second push on start or restart of race will be placed at rear. The only exception is if a driver is stopped by an ASCS official. Instructions to stop will be delivered over the RACEceiver Radio.
Any car on or near the racing surface that delays the start or restart of any race shall be penalized one lap by Officials. A work area will be designated at drivers meeting.
Alternates will not be taken to fill any vacancies that occur.
Any car not running at a reasonable racing speed may be subject to disqualification for safety reasons.
The winner of each Heat Race, Qualifier, any consolation feature, and the top five finishers in the A Feature are required to go to the scales. Drivers must go directly to the scales. Any driver not going directly to the scales will be disqualified. The position of the scales will be disclosed during the drivers meeting. It is the responsibility of the drivers to know and understand where and how to get to the scales to avoid any penalties.

Another change to the rules relates to the use of Provisionals on the National Tour with Provisionals no longer counting towards A Feature points, but only B Feature points will a set amount allowed per driver now removed. The use of Provisionals are still based on Owner Points, with a maximum of two points based Provisionals per night.

Continuing on the subject of provisional, a provision that is rarely used, the Promoter's Provisional, allowed any promoter to put two drivers of their choice into the A Feature for money only, no additional points. That has been reduced to a single driver, with the other position no reserved for events co-sanctioned with ASCS Regions. The rule reads as follows:

Provisional: National drivers that have run 80% of the National events are eligible for a provisional. There are events that Provisionals will not be allowed. ASCS officials will notify teams of these events (Example: Dirt Cup and the ASCS Knoxville Nationals). The driver highest in owner points, not making the show, has first choice at a provisional and then the second and on down. No more than two points based Provisionals will be allowed per night. Points based Provisionals award full payout for the position earned at the close of the A-Feature, but only award B Feature points (65). Any team who has competed in 80% of the year's events, and is in good standing is not limited on the number of points based Provisionals per year they may use. These are in place to help teams get down the road. Any promoter will be allowed to add any car that they wish. At co-sanctioned events with an ASCS Region, the highest finishing non-transfer driver in Regional standings that has attended 100% of that Region's schedule shall be given a provisional into the night's A-Feature. Provisional rules apply to National Tour races only.

Clarification of point fund eligibility has also been added as well as clarification of rules relating to Tow Money on both the Regional, if applicable, and National Tour.

Engine, Car, and Tire rules will remain unchanged for the 2016 season.

Wayne Johnson To Take on Lucas Oil ASCS With New Owner In 2016

TULSA, Okla. (February 15, 2016) Getting ready for the 2016 season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network National Tour has been a busy one for Wayne Johnson. An owner driver the past few seasons, the Oklahoma City native has handed over the title of owner to Todd and Kelly Carlile for the 2016 season.

"With Todd and Kelly taking over the team, you know, it definitely relieves some stress on me having to try and pay for everything," said Wayne of the transition back to being just the driver.

Elaborating further, Johnson explained, "Now I can focus more on the driving aspect of it, but honestly, as much of a change as it is, it really isn't because Todd's been involved with me for several years as a sponsor. The only difference of having him as the owner, it takes a big burden off of me because as an owner/driver, you race differently because it comes back on you, but having said that, I'm not wanting to go out and cost him a bunch of money either, because I know what it takes and what it costs to do this."

Looking over the roster of National Tour drivers, Wayne commented that this year's lineup is among the toughest he's seen in a long time. "I'm excited for this season. I can remember seasons where you had three guys that you know they were the ones you had to beat, and this year it's almost all of them. It'll be good for the series with so many good cars. It's going to be tough."

Normally the No. 77x, Johnson will have No. 2c on the sideboards of his Outlaw Wings in 2016.

"At first, Todd wanted to leave everything the same. He wanted it to look the same and I told him that I didn't want it that way. We wanted a big change, and I wanted it to look like Todd and Kelly's deal, not Wayne Johnson's deal."

While massive change has taken place in owner, numbers, and color, so much of the team will remain the same as Connor "Slippy" Nelson will start his fifth year as Wayne's right hand man. Wayne's brother, Bud Johnson, will also be a part of the crew as his schedule allows. The team will utilize EMI Chassis along with relying on Charlie Fisher Racing Engines under the bonnet.

Along with thanks to the Carlile family, Wayne would like to welcome Ray Williams and City Vending back as a sponsor in 2016. Special thank goes to Wayne's sponsors, which include: Two C Racing, The Oil Medics, Rod End Supply, Outlaw Wings, City Vending, Slade Shocks, Sebastian Sand Blasting and Powder Coating, and Weld Racing Wheels.

Fans wanting to keep up with Wayne Johnson can do so via Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/WayneJohnsonRacing/?fref=ts). Anyone wanting news from the source can also sign up for "Wednesday's With Wayne" by emailing Bill Wright (@BillWMedia) at sprntcar@hotmail.com.

The 2016 season is the 25th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing across the United States for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. The 2016 season begins at the Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. on Friday, March 11 and Saturday, March 12 with the Sooner State Showdown.

ASCS Red River Region Announces $15,000 Point Fund for 2016 Season
TULSA, Okla. (February 16, 2016) Tow Money, increased nightly payout, a lineup that covers tracks in Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas, and now a $15,000 point fund ads an exclamation point to the 2016 season for the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products, and it hasn't even begun.

"These drivers are the best you could ask for, and the point of ASCS is to expand, and better the sport of Sprint Car racing, so that's what our goal is with the Red River Region," commented director, Terry Mattox, who also heads the NOW600 National Micro Series presented by MyRacePass.

"The goals when we brought the Sooner and Lone Star Regions back together was to bring a better schedule, and better payout. The first year, each night was $2,000 to win, $250 to start. This year, we brought the bottom end up to $300 to start as well as raise the non-qualifier money from $100 to $150, plus we were able to keep our Tow Money package in place for drivers in the Top-10 who are members in good standing," said Mattox. "The next step was to bring the point fund up where it needs to be, and thanks to our sponsors, we were able to do that this season."

The final payout will cover the Top-10 in Regional standings that are members in good standing, having completed 70% of the season's schedule. Membership forms are available now at http://www.ascsracing.com.

Kass Cornella Named Competition Director For ASCS Frontier In 2016

TULSA, Okla. (February 12, 2016) The 2016 lineup for the ASCS Frontier Region is taking shape, and will be under the direction of Wyoming's Kass Cornella, who was a regular name in the former ASCS Rocky Mountain Region, and is an active engine builder for teams across the Northwest.

"I'm honored to be taking over and helping out. This is an origination that I feel pretty strongly about," commented Cornella on his taking charge of the ASCS Frontier Region, which has operated in Montana, South Dakota, and Wyoming since 2013. "We've got some great people in this and I need to thank Barry Martinez at SpeedMart for committing contingencies to the series as well as Forrest Lucas for his support of ASCS."

According to Cornella, the ASCS Frontier Region will payout $1,500 to the winner, and $300 to start the A-Feature with all non-transfers getting $100. The schedule is nearly finalized and will be released in the coming weeks.

While there has been a lot of rumor and speculation over the past few month, ASCS founder, Emmett Hahn, recently made a trip to Montana to meet with owners and drivers.

"I went up to Montana a few weeks ago and met with the bulk of the owners and drivers up there, and they all voted to keep with ASCS and to support this Frontier Region," said Emmett. "They've got a good car count up here, and we just need to make sure they have good racing too and I think Kass and everyone up here will be just fine."

Along with thanking Kass for stepping in to run the ASCS Frontier Region, a special thanks is also due to Jeremy McCune, who has help to round up new tracks to support the region. Kass Cornella can be reached at (307) 351-1412 or by email at kass_cornella@yahoo.com.

Johnny Herrera Readying For 2016 Season With Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour

TULSA, Okla. (February 12, 2016) Just under a month for the 2016 season opener for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network at the Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Oklahoma, Johnny Herrera is putting the final touches on his 2016 National Tour setup.

"The goal this year is the same as every starting out. We aim for the Championship," commented Herrera of the coming season. "That was our first year in the family owned No. 45x on this tour and we almost got that done. It was a year that we didn't expect it to happen, but it did and we've been consistently in the top five ever since."

Taking over the reins of ownership on the No. 45x in 2015, Johnny hasn't been effected much by the change, "I've been in the sport long enough that it wasn't really much of a change. Now it's just knowing that at the end of the day, I have to make this thing pay for itself but really the only thing we run into is not having someone to help on the car day in, and day out and that's something I need to fix this year. We have a lot of good guys running with us and they gel very well together, so it's going to be tough coming off the success those teams had last year."

Surveying the season's lineup of drivers, the 31 year veteran of the sport knows that the competition isn't getting any easier, "It's going to be tough. At the end, there's going to be three or four guys that are going to be really tough no matter what, and you have these younger teams that are getting their equipment better, and working harder at it, so it's not getting any easier for this old guy, I can tell you that," chuckled Herrera who continued, "that just means I've got to keep working hard."

On the subject of what keeps Johnny coming back, Herrera responded, "It's a great series. I can't think of another one as far as tow money and what you're racing for, outside the World of Outlaws that offers what ASCS does. You can go run Knoxville if you want weekly racing, and they have a great payout if you're 410cid racing, but as far as any National Tour, this is the best next to the Outlaws."

While equipment change will be slight going into the 2016 season, Johnny will again utilize Maxim Chassis with all cars going back to the "Big Max" design. Herrera's main engine supplier in 2016 will be Ostrich Racing Engines. On the part of team members, the JHR team is pleased to announce Chris Stivers, who was a long time crew member for Gary Wright, will join Herrera full-time on the road. Stivers crewed part time for Johnny in 2015 during the series Northwest swing.

Special thanks goes to Johnny's wife, Ann as well as long time sponsor, Royal Jones, who operates Mesilla Valley Transportation in Las Cruces, N.M. Johnny would also like to think Semi-Crazy Truck Wash, Champion Brands, Smiley's Racing Products, Competition Suspension, CSR Garage, KW Motorsports, and Ortega Appliance Repair.

Johnny would also like to welcome Morton Excavating in Coweta, Okla. and Heidbreder Foundation Service, LLC in Jefferson City, Mo. to the list of sponsors for the 2016 season.

Fans of Johnny Herrera can keep up-to-date with "Hollywood" online at http://www.johnnyherreraracing.com as well as Twitter (@JohnnyHerrera2). For news direct to your email on Johnny Herrera, email Shawn Miller with Inside Line Promotions at insidelinepromotions@gmail.com.

The 2016 season is the 25th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing across the United States for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. The 2016 season begins at the Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. on Friday, March 11 and Saturday, March 12 with the Sooner State Showdown.

He's Back! Brad Loyet Returns To Lucas Oil ASCS Competition in 2016

TULSA, Okla. (February 11, 2016) After running close to home in 2015, Missouri's Brad Loyet confirmed to officials with the American Sprint Car Series that he will be back on the road in 2016 with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

"We took a year and had our fun, and it was a good thing, but I like having that carrot in front of my face," said Loyet about returning to the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. "We've got good cars, good engines, and I've got good guys with me, so I'm ready to get out and give it another shot."

On coming back in 2016, Loyet stated, "We've got quite a few things going on right now, and the way the schedule work out is a benefit, and that's one of the things that turned me to it, plus when we're not on the road, there's five nights a Sedalia with the Warrior Region that pay well that we can go run, and that works out good, plus I've still got a fresh 410cid in the shed to go race."

Taking the road in the familiar orange Loyet Motorsports No. o5, Brad commented on the benefit of being able to again race with family, "We're a tight-knit team across the board. We're in the RV with my Dad. We kind of stay to ourselves a little bit, but we have probably more fun than anyone else, but were serious and that's what it takes to win a championship and getting to run up and down the road with my dad every weekend, I'm pretty excited."

While Loyet's time at National Tour events were limited in 2015, seven appearances, yielded just as many top-five runs, as well as a victory in the Hockett/McMillin Memorial at the Lucas Oil Speedway. With momentum going into 2016, Loyet is determined to walk out with a championship.

"We're coming out swinging. We led this deal before all the way to the last night and came up short. That's not going to happen again. We are very motivated to win a lot of money this season."

The 2016 season is the fourth time that Brad has chased the Lucas Oil ASCS National Championship since 2012.

Brad Loyet will again utilize Maxim Chassis with J&D Performance under the bonnet. Brad would like to first and foremost thank his family for their support as well as his sponsors: Vacuworx Global, Loyet Landscaping, Merrimac Heights Collision Center, HRP, Rod End Supply, Weld Wheels, and Speedway Motors.

Fans wanting to keep up with Brad Loyet can do so online at http://www.loyetmotorsports.com as well as Facebook and Twitter (@LoyetMotorsport). Fans can also get news direct to their email by emailing Bill Wright (@BillWMedia) at sprntcar@hotmail.com with "Loyet" in the Subject Line.

The 2016 season is the 25th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing across the United States for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. The 2016 season begins at the Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. on Friday, March 11 and Saturday, March 12 with the Sooner State Showdown.

Seth Bergman Focused On 2016 Lucas Oil ASCS National Title Run

TULSA, Okla. (February 10, 2016) One name that has become synonymous with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is Washington's Seth Bergman.

Coming off a banner year that included 13 overall wins, Seth continues to climb the ladder of success as he looks to add the 2016 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour Championship to his resume.

"We're committed 100 percent to try to see this championship through," said Seth in looking at the 2016 season. "I'm not going to lie, I will be disappointed if we don't win the championship this year. I feel like we've been here long enough, and I've grown enough as an individual and a racecar driver. Last year, we had the speed to be a championship contender, and I feel like we've put all the tools in place."

Reflecting on 2015 and where the team can improve, Seth commented, "Looking back at last year, there's some things we can be proud of. We won some big races as far as 360cid competition goes, and we were in the hunt for a lot more. I can look back and pinpoint why we lost them and looking back, we are happy, but looking to this year we want to improve on that, look at the areas we struggled, and improve on those and make sure we don't have those problems this year."

A part of the Lucas Oil ASCS presented the MAVTV Motorsports Network since 2009, the familiar No. 23 will again utilize EMI for their Chassis needs, with the biggest change coming between the pipes as Scott Baylor Racing Engines has taken over all of the B&M Motorsport's horsepower needs.

A large part of Seth's success in 2015 is Crew Chief, Tyler Tessemaker, who will again join Seth on the road in 2016.

"Last year in Florida was mine and Tyler's first race together, and it's just been us ever since, and I think for a driver and crew chief combo to go out and win 13 races, and be a championship contender in their first year with so many variables no solid or going in the right direction, the numbers we put up together shows what we are capable of doing."

Continuing the partnership with Dennis Marshala and Oil Field Equipment and Manufacturing, Seth can't thank Dennis as well as his family enough for their continued support in making his dream of racing on the road a reality. Seth would like to thank his sponsors Corridor Electric, Oil Field Equipment and Manufacturing, SpeedMart, Scott Baylor Racing Engines, EMI, Young Tool Co., and would like to welcome Speedy Auto Service to the list of sponsors in 2016.

Blake Hahn Set For Third Year With the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour

TULSA, Okla. (February 9, 2016) Just off of his second straight appearance in the A-Feature of the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals, Blake Hahn has cars nearly ready for another year of competition with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

Year No. 3 for the Oklahoma racer on the National Tour, Hahn will pilot the family backed Lucas Oil / JR1 No. 52.

"I'm really looking forward to this year," said Hahn. "Our winged season ended really well last year, and we were able to advance in the standings and improve over our Rookie season so we accomplished what we set out to do. Now it's just building on that success and going after more wins this season."

With cars freshly returned from JR1 Race Cars, the final touches are being applied with very little changing on the team for the 2016 season.

"It's still going to be Dalton, my Dad, and myself on the road this year. Jerry Russell builds us great cars, and you just can't go wrong with Wesmar power so really, as far as changes, right now we're more focused on making what we've been doing more consistent."

Looking at the full National Tour lineup, as well as select ASCS Regional and Midget events in 2016, Hahn looks to be in action upwards of 60 times, "Anytime we're not on the road, we're going to find something to race. We raced a lot of Red River and Gulf South shows last year in addition to the National Tour, so we'll do that again, plus there are some POWRi shows we want to run as well so we can test some things for the Shootout and Chili Bowl."

Blake Hahn would like to thank his family for their continued support to put his No. 52 on the road as well as Lucas Oil Products, Protect the Harvest, CSR Garage, Pizza Express of Oklahoma, Engler, Hoosier Tire, Triple X, JR Race Cars, Smiley's Racing Products, Speedway Motors, Rod End Supply, Lightning Wings, Penske Shocks, and FSR Radiators for their continued support.

Aaron Reutzel Looking For Back-To-Back Championships With The Lucas Oil ASCS

TULSA, Okla. (February 8, 2016) It wasn't long ago that Aaron Reutzel was battling to earn his first win with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. Accomplishing that in 2014, the goal quickly turned to the season ending $60,000 champion's prize.

March the calendar ahead one year, and the Clute, Texas driver stood tall as the 2015 Lucas Oil ASCS National Champion. Already up to speed with events in Arizona, Oklahoma, and Florida under his belt in 2016, Aaron Reutzel will again take on the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour in the B.C. Fundz / Dissolvalloy No. 87.

"My goal last year was to win the championship and eight National Tour races. I won the championship, and won seven National Tour races so my goal this year is to again win the championship, as well as those eight A-Mains," said Aaron, who is currently racing in Florida.

Asked about other goals on the season, the defending champion replied, "We want to win the Championship again, but I also want to win a World of Outlaws A-Main this year. I've probably got 10 Outlaw races on my schedule, maybe a little less, but that would be one of my goals this year. In the 410, I'd like to get at least three wins, but with at least an Outlaw win."

Looking at the team going into the 2016 season versus the 2015 season, very little has changed for Aaron. With the success of 2015, this season is about refinement.

"You know, car wise, I'm trying to learn from my mistakes last year because I feel like we did a good job, but the racing I felt like I made one mistake I can think of all year that cost me a win when I ran over a lapped car, but all our DNF's were unnecessary. I never took myself out of a race, we just had too many part failures so this year, I'm trying to capitalize on those part failures to where I'm going to try and run newer stuff," said Aaron of the racing program.

Turning the conversation on himself, the saying that auto racing is not a sport couldn't be further from the truth for Aaron who has started to make changes in his life to combat the physical demands that come with Sprint Car racing.

"I felt like I never really got tired last year, but when we went to Yuma this year, one of the A-Mains was really physical. It was rough and heavy all night and I noticed that I started getting tired, so I feel like I've been taking racing for granted and you know, this is my job. This is how I feed my family and make my living so I've talked to a dietitian and a physical trainer and put myself on a really good diet plus I started running so I'm definitely going to try and be in better shape," commented Aaron. "I've talked with Joey Saldana and Shane Stewart and they work out quite and bit just to be where they are, and look at Donny Schatz. He's got a hell of a diet and workout going right now, and he's unstoppable."

With wife, Shelbey, and son, Carson, in tow Aaron will look to be in mid-season form with a few race dates on the docket before the 2016 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour kicks off on March 11 and 12 at the Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. with the Sooner State Showdown.

Going into the 2016 season, Aaron would like to thank some of his sponsors who have made this possible, including: Dissolvalloy, B.C. Fundz, Simpson, Triple X Race Co., Shark Racing Engines, Jones & Hadley, Danny Sander Construction, Momentum Suspension Systems, and Wren's Motorsports.

Car Owner Bobby Sparks Returns to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour with Steven Russell Behind the Wheel

TULSA, Okla. (February 5, 2016) Legendary Mid-South car owner Bobby Sparks will bring his familiar No. 91 back on the road with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network for the first time since 2009.

"I'm ready. I'm really ready to be back out on the road with the ASCS," said Sparks, of Olive Branch, Miss., about his return as a car owner with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour in 2016.

A mentor of many over the years including Darren Stewart, Tim Crawley, Wayne Johnson, and Gary Taylor just to name a few, Mr. Sparks will bring Illinois' up and comer Steven Russell to the driver's seat in 2016 for his bid at being the 2016 Brodix Rookie of the Year.

"I'm pumped about his kid. He really wants to do it. His Dad really wants to do it and it's great because that's been my biggest issue for the last several years is not having any help. They all can show up at the racetrack and everything's fine, but once we leave, it's all on me and I'm getting to old for that," said Sparks who makes the 2016 season his 45th year in motorsports.

The son of Jerry Russell, long time car builder and fabricator who founded Eagle Chassis and later came out with the JR1 brand, Steven has been racing going on 15 years, coming from Quarter Midgets starting at age four, to Micros at age nine, and finally Sprint Cars at 15 years of age, starting off in 305cid competition before progressing to higher horsepower.

Currently 19 the Marketing Major at Lincoln Land Community College is the youngest driver on the National Tour in 2016 and joins Josh Baughman in the hunt for Brodix Rookie of the Year.

"This is a great opportunity, especially with someone like Bobby [Sparks] who has done this for so many years. Plus, I'll have Bobby and my Dad with me so I'll have two great coaches."

Asked what it would mean to earn the title of Brodix Rookie of the Year in 2016, Steven replied, "It would mean a lot and I think it would open up a lot of doors. Even the greats had to earn a Rookie of the Year somewhere."

Steven would like to thank car owner, Bobby Sparks, as well as his Father, Jerry Russell, for the opportunity to be a part of the Sparks Racing No. 91 as well as his sponsors, MRC Construction, FSR Radiators, Huggins Cams, Ostrich Racing Engines, Car and Fleet, Pro Tech, FK Rod Ends, Hoosier, Penske Shocks, Engler Machine and Tool, Simpson, Fibreworks Composites, K1 Race Gear, Mahan Fiberglass, Wilwood, Maxwell Industries, XYZ Machining, BMRS, DMI, and TSR. Steven Russell can be found on Facebook.
