2017 Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals At 183 Entries And Climbing
TULSA, Okla. (December 1, 2016) The chill in the air may signal the coming of Christmas for some, but for the world of dirt track racing, that means the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire is right around the corner.

Happening January 10-14, 2017 inside the River Spirit Expo Center in Tulsa, Okla. the 31st edition of the world's largest Midget racing event is on track to set another record as the entry list debuts 39 ahead of the 2016 first look at 183 strong.

Comprised of some of racing's greatest talent, the count includes three past champions to go along with 25 A-Feature starters and 38 Chili Bowl Rookies.

For the champions, Damion Gardner, Tracy Hines, and John Heydenreich are the earliest to put their name in for another Golden Driller.

Hines, who last won the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals in 2005, will again pilot his familiar Bob Parker/Spike with a Toyota No. 24. In A-Feature power rankings, Hines is second overall to Sammy Swindell with 14 A-Feature starts, a pair of podiums, three top-fives', and eight top-ten runs to go along with his win.

Making the cut on eight occasions, "The Demon" last saw Victory Lane in 2008 while driving for the late, Jason Leffler. Add two podiums, just as many top-fives', and three top-tens' and Gardner is 25th overall in Chili Bowl A-Feature performances. Taking a Golden Driller home in 1990, John Heydenreich is the only driver in the field thus far who can say he raced the very first Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals. In all, John has made three A-Features with his podium, top-five, and top-ten count all at a pair.

While Tracey Hines has the best average record of drivers currently entered, none have more feature starts so far than Dave Darland. "The People's Champ" has made the cut 15 times since 1998. Missing the show in 2016, Darland will again pilot the Gray Auto / Toyota No. 11AG. The record of course belong to Sammy Swindell with 23 to his credit.

Looking over the list of Chili Bowl Rookies, one name that stands out is Donny Schatz. The North Dakota shoe has landed the World Of Outlaws Sprint Car title seven times, and will grace the clay of the Tulsa Expo Raceway in the Clauson-Marshall Racing with additional support from Matt Wood Racing No. 15.

Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour Returning To Colorado In 2017!

TULSA, Okla. (November 27, 2016) The lineup for the 2017 season for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is continuing to take shape and among the nights that have already been confirmed is the National Tour's return to Colorado and the addition of two new facilities to the ASCS lineup as Joe Bellm with BST Promotions will bring the series back to Colorado on Memorial Day Weekend.

Starting off on Saturday, May 27 the series will debut at El Paso County Raceway in Calhan, Colo. with Phillips County Raceway in Holyoke, Colo. following on Sunday, May 28.

Last visiting the "Centennial State" in 1998, Oklahoma's Daryn Pittman found Victory Lane at the Rocky Mountain National Speedway in Denver.

"It's been a pretty rocky road around here with dirt track racing, but we have things really rolling well and we're looking forward to having the ASCS back in Colorado," commented event promoter, Joe Bellm.

"We have the facilities now to host events like the Outlaws last year, and now the ASCS next year and El Paso County Raceway is by far the nicest facilities in the state. We've lengthened the track as well as widened it over the past three years so it's ready to go. Phillips County was actually downsized from a half-mile to a three-eighths and it can hold about 4,000 people and with all the upgrades there, these are the best facilities in the state so that's where we're going."

Answering the fans demands for Sprint Car racing, Bellm has also helped build events around Colorado to where tracks and classes rarely run on top of each other in order to give everyone a fair shake at racing and watching. The Colorado Alliance Tour encompasses four tracks, with Lamar Speedway and I-76 Speedway filling the other two spots.

Tickets for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour's 2017 Colorado stops will be on sale soon at http://www.bstpromotions.com. Fans can also contact Bellm at (720) 404-0400 or by email at joe@bstracing.com for more information and questions as the events draw closer.

The 2017 season is the 26th year of competition for the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. The American Sprint Car Series if the largest sanctioning body for Sprint Car racing in the United States with events across both National and Regional platforms.

The preliminary lineup for the 2017 season will be released on December 9, 2016 during PRI Indy.For continued updates on the Lucas Oil ASCS or any of the Regions that make up the ASCS Nation, log onto http://www.ascsracing.com.

D.J. Netto Scoops Up ASCS Southwest Copper Classic Victory

QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (November 26, 2016) There is Gold in California, but it just picked up a little bit of Copper with Saturday's $5,000 winner's share of the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region Copper Classic at Arizona Speedway going to Hanford, California's D.J. Netto.

Netto's first ASCS sanctioned triumph, the win makes the pilot of the No. 3c the 44th different winner in ASCS Southwest competition since 2008.

Coming from the fifth starting spot, Netto continually moved forward during Saturday's 25 lap championship event. Taking second on Lap 16, the chase was on to catch race long leader, Christopher Bell, in the Buffalo Wild Wings No. 82.

Hoping to dig up a win, slower traffic had other plans for Bell who fell out of the race on Lap 19 after contact with a slower machine. Handing the top spot to Netto, the restart would find El Paso's John Carney II on the back bumper of the No. 3c, but would not be challenged as D.J. opened up his advantage to 1.637 seconds at the drop of the checkered flag.

Carney would cross second with Washington's Reece Goetz finding his way to the final podium step. Aaron Reutzel was fourth with Chase Goetz making up the top-five. Having to come from the B-Main, Arizona's Bob Ream, Jr. clawed his way from 18th to sixth with Lance Norick seventh. Michael Kofoid from 15th was eighth, followed by Garen Linder and Rick Ziehl to complete the top-ten.

The final night of the 2016 season for the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region, New Mexico's Rick Ziehl yet again managed to hold off all challengers to bring his record of championships to a perfect nine in a row with the ASCS Southwest Region.

In the final standings, Ziehl beat out 2016 Rookie of the Year, Colton Hardy, by 65 markers with Bob Ream, Jr. ending his season third. Lance Norick and Jesse Baker made up the top-five in series standings.

The Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region would like to thank the teams, tracks, and above all the fans for their continued support and look forward to bringing you another exciting season of racing in 2017.

Billy Chester Holds Off Christopher Bell In ASCS Southwest Copper Classic Opener

QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (November 25, 2016) A wild night at the races ended with Arizona's Billy Chester III standing atop the podium with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region to kick off the Copper Classic at Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek.

Leading the final four laps of Friday's $2,000 to win preliminary A-Feature, the road to the top was a bumpy one as Chester gridded the field eighth. Giving chase as Oklahoma's Christopher Bell jumped to the lead in the Buffalo Wild Wings No. 82, Bell was challenged on the eighth round by Aaron Reutzel. Taking the top spot, the lead was short lived as Aaron made contact with the wall along the back stretch.

Shredding the right rear of Reutzel's machine, the flying chunks of Hoosier sent Bell pit side as well. Bell was able to continue after the crew reattached a dislodged plugwire.

Handing the lead to Colby Copeland, the No. 18w looked to be en-route to victory before his night ended in spectacular fashion along the front stretch. Colby was unharmed in the crash involving lapped traffic.

Inheriting the lead, Chester found himself stalked by Christopher Bell.

Having fought back from the tail of the field, Bell took several shots at the point, but would be denied the victory as Chester crossed 0.883 seconds to the good for his third career victory with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region. Bell would settle for second with Washington's Reece Goetz taking the final podium step.

Locking the top-four into Saturday's $5,000 to win finale, New Mexico's Rick Ziehl grabbed the final transfer spot. Chase Goetz completed the top-five from 17th. Colton Hardy crossed sixth with James Aragon, Jeremy McCune, Garen Linder, and Alex Pettas making the top-ten.

The Cooper Classic concludes on Saturday, November 26 and is the finale of the 2016 season for the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region. For continued updates, log onto http://www.ascsracing.com.

Reutzel Wins the Battle, Hafertepe Wins The War At Cocopah Speedway

SOMERTON, Ariz. (November 12, 2016) Winning out the 30 Lap game of Cat and Mouse at the Cocopah Speedway, Aaron Reutzel put an exclamation point on his year by winning the finale of the 2016 season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network over newly crowned champion, Sam Hafertepe, Jr.

"I kind of had a feeling the bottom was going to come in, but I didn't want to abort what I'd been doing so well. All that was left was the fence. You can go look at it, it's just pure wall so it was tough," explained Reutzel when asked about the road to victory.

"I wanted to go to the bottom on the that restart, but I just decided to go back to the top and see if Sam showed us something and figured I could get back in but I just wasn't as good on the bottom, and I figured, last race of the season with the National Tour; I would rather flip out of the park, than run second."

Taking off from the third position, Reutzel stalked the Hwy. 79 Collision No. 15h from the start. Riding a deep cushion around the Cocopah Speedway, Reutzel pulled the trigger on Lap 7 with a slide job for the lead.

Leading one more lap before relinquishing the top spot to Hafertepe who returned the slide in kind on the ninth round, Aaron was quick to answer with a slide job of his own the following revolution.

Chasing down the tail of the field, Hafertepe was on the heels of the Dissolvalloy No. 87. Working the top and bottom groove as needed, Sam's run on the No. 87 would begin to wane, but a caution on Lap 21 would bring the No. 15h back into the hunt.

Restarting with a slower car between them, Hafertepe made quick work of the lapped car. Committing to the bottom side of the Cocopah Speedway, Hafertepe and Reutzel were a near even match as Hafertepe worked under the No. 87 on Lap 22. Forcing Aaron off the cushion to block, Hafertepe rolled the center of turns one and two to lead the twenty-third rotation.

Returning to the cushion with a big run, Aaron all but rode the wall around the Cocopah Speedway to regain the lead on Lap 24. Wheel to wheel for several laps, Aaron finally gained the edge to win by 0.495.

On the choice of line and watching Aaron bounce of the wall, Sam stated, "Everyone was struggling on the cushion, but Aaron was able to manipulate it better than anyone else, and that's way he won this race. That's the kind of track he's really good at, where it's not really my forte. I'm more of a finesse guy and we get our car pretty tight, so it's hard to really lean a curb like that but to get back by him there late, I thought we had him dead to rights but he kept digging and deserves the win."

Crossing 5.831 seconds behind the leader, Washington's Jason Solwold picked up his second podium of the weekend in the Scottie Pluming No. 18.

Johnny Herrera ended his season with a fourth place finish in the Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 45x with Seth Bergman crossing fifth in the Corridor Electric No. 23. Pennsylvania's Ryan Smith crossed sixth for car owner, Ryan Linder with Blake Hahn coming from 15th to seventh. Dominic Scelzi was eighth with Mason Moore coming from 18th to ninth. Colby Copeland completing the top-ten.

With 37 drivers checking in, Heat Races were won by Logan Forler, Blake Hahn, Colby Copeland, and Roger Crockett. Qualifiers were topped by Thomas Kennedy, Wayne Johnson, and Ryan Smith. B-Main wins went to Logan Forler and Mason Moore.

A Regional Provisional were awarded to Rick Ziehl. The Promoter's Provisional went to James Mosher.

With the 2016 season in the books, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. goes down as the 12th different driver to earn a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour Championship since 1992. The season saw 50 nights scheduled with 18 drivers finding victories in the 40 nights that were contested. Of the 18 winners, seven were first time winners to bring the overall to 136 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour winners. Hafertepe was the winningest driver of the season with eight triumphs.

"We wanted to win this race really bad, and you could see that in how hard we were racing, but Aaron is a damn good," commented Hafertepe. "To get the championship, we're very happy. We knew we had it locked up coming in, but we still wanted to post two strong runs to end the year. End out with a pair of bad runs, it kills your confidence at the start of the next season so we definitely wanted to end it strong like we did."

The 2017 Lucas Oil ASCS lineup will be released during P.R.I. Indy on Friday, December 9. For continued updates on the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, log onto http://www.ascsracing.com.

Seth Bergman Prevails With Lucas Oil ASCS At Cocopah Speedway
SOMERTON, Ariz. (November 11, 2016) Seeking his first Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network win of the 2016 season, Seth Bergman finally got the job done with his first career win at the Cocopah Speedway in Somerton, Ariz. in a caution free nail bitter to open up the 2016 Lucas Oil ASCS National Season Finale and snap a 45 race winless streak.


"We made some changes and man, this thing has been bad fast ever since. I can't say enough about my guys. They work their tails off on this thing and I just feel like the lucky guy that gets to get behind the wheel," commented Bergman who is the sixth different winner in Lucas Oil ASCS competition at the Cocopah Speedway.

Addressing the crowd following his ninth career Lucas Oil ASCS victory, Bergman said, "I don't know about you guys up there, but I was on pins and needles, so I'm sure you had to be too. That was excited."

Fighting a sticking throttle on the opening rotations to drop from third to fourth, the Corridor Electric No. 23 rode fourth the opening seven rounds as fellow Washington native, Jason Solwold, led the charge into slower traffic.

With traffic in play, Solwold had fast company as Herrera, Bergman, and Hafertepe began putting in their bid for the lead. Dicing in and out of the back markers, the No. 23 worked on second on Lap 12. Carrying momentum the following lap, Bergman shot to the race lead and began putting car lengths between Solwold and himself.

Setting sail into more slower traffic, Seth pulled the slide around a lapped car, but found a rut though the second turn. Upsetting the car and nearly ending Seth's night, the Washington native narrowly recovered, but allowed Jason Solwold back into the lead on the 15th round.

Rebuilding his run, Seth was not to be denied; making the race winning pass on Lap 18 with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. in tow. Racing back and forth with the No. 15h in the closing laps, Solwold eventually worked back into second but would trail Bergman by 0.593 seconds at the checkered flag.

Solwold's first A-Feature appearance at the Cocopah Speedway in ASCS competition, Jason finds himself solidly locked into Saturday's finale.

"Seth ran a heck of a race. We just got hung up behind a lapped car and that was racing us all pretty hard there and just came out on the short end of the stick there but Seth got up there and set a good pace. We just needed to be better with the car but finishing second locks us into tomorrow."

Rolling like a house of fire in the closing laps, Aaron Reutzel advanced 11 spots to take the final podium step. Asked what would have made the race a little easier, the Texas native replied, "I needed to get through my Qualifier better. I made a mistake that cost me and we ended up starting 14th, but we were really good. I don't even fell like I needed a caution because them racing through lapped traffic is what helped me get through there. The car was awesome."

Settling for fourth, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. garnered the final transfer into Saturday's Championship event and will start the A-Feature as the 2016 Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network Champion.

Roger Crockett completed the top-five the HAM Construction No. 35m.

As high as second at one point, slower traffic pushed Johnny Herrera back to a sixth place finish with Wayne Johnson seventh. From 17th, California's Dominic Scelzi rolled to an eighth place finish with 14 year old Michael Kofoid ninth. Cory Eliason completed the top-ten.

The 2016 Lucas Oil ASCS finale at the Cocopah Speedway drew 40 drivers split into five Heat Races with wins going to Thomas Kennedy, Alex Pettas, Matt Covington, D.J. Netto, and Johnny Herrera. Qualifiers were topped by Seth Bergman, Cory Eliason, and Roger Crockett. The B-Mains went to Dominic Scelzi and Logan Forler.

Provisional starts were used by Colton Hardy on a Regional Provisional. A Promoter's Provisional was awarded to Chase Goetz.

The final night of the 25th season of Lucas Oil ASCS competition is Saturday, November 12 with gates opening at 5:00 P.M. and Racing at 7:00 P.M. (MT). For more information, log onto http:/www.cocopahspeedway.com.

John Carney II Wins Lucas Oil ASCS Thriller At Creek County Speedway
SAPULPA, Okla. (November 5, 2016) The finale of the John Christner Trucking Fall Fling powered by Pizza Express with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network was a show to behold as John Carney II held off a barrage of slide jobs from Sam Hafertepe, Jr. to pick up his second career National Tour Victory.

"Man, I don't even know what to say right now. That was pretty spectacular from where I was sitting. He gave me a little room, I gave him a little room, and that's what racing is all about in order to put on a good show for these fans. They're what this is all about," said Carney who, along with the $4,000 winner's purse, also pocketed an extra $1,980 in bonus lap money.

Greeted in Victory Lane by Sam Hafertepe, Jr. with a congratulatory handshake, Hafertepe commented, "How about this guy? That's a hell of a racer to run the top like he did for 40 laps and barely ever falter. He was wearing me out man, and I wasn't going to do him dirty. He did a hell of a job and he earned this one for sure."

Win No. 13 on the season for Carney, the El Paso, Texas native began the 40 lap feature event from the pole with a straightaway long wheel-stand into the lead.

Caution working Lap two, Carney was under pressure from Wayne Johnson and Seth Bergman, but was able to keep the pair at bay with the runner-up spot eventually taken over by Sam Hafertepe, Jr. who utilized a Lap 5 restart.

Pulling the Top Wing into the trunk, Hafertepe kept his Keith Dobbs Motorsports No. 15h pinned to the low line while Carney railed the cushion at both ends of the Creek County Speedway. Patiently pursuing the Lubbock Wrecker Service No. 11x, the door swung wide open for Hafertepe working lap 15 as Carney was all but stopped behind a slower car, but the caution would negate the pass.

Challenging again on the restart, Carney retained the lead. Slowed on Lap 20, it didn't take long to find traffic once the race resumed. Hooking the left front on the berm, Hafertepe pulled nearly even for the lead several times, but to no avail.

Yellow for the final time with 31 laps complete, the gloves were off as Hafertepe dove for the lead on the restart. Finally taking the top spot on Lap 33 off the fourth turn, Carney returned the slide in kind to retake the point on Lap 34.

Slide for slide, the pair used every inch of real estate they could find with Carney able to beat the No. 15h back to the flag stand. Switching lines to the bottom through the first and second turns in order to scrub off Hafertepe's momentum, Carney finally got some breathing room in the closing few laps as the margin of victory was 1.109 seconds.

Having worked the second in the early laps, Washington's Seth Bergman bounced around the top-five most of the race before landing in third for the second night in a row.

"I was just trying to find every piece of real estate I could find out there. I had an awesome hot rod. My guys worked their butts off all weekend and gave me a car we could really compete with. We've been out for a month so to come back and get two podiums is a great result."

Running in the top three at the final restart, and about to pressure both Hafertepe and Carney, the City Vending No. 2c of Wayne Johnson would slip to a fourth place finish as the brakes began fading in and out. Coming from 10th, New Mexico's Johnny Herrera claimed the fifth spot.

From taking a provisional the night before, Kyle Bellm raced his way into the show and ended his night with a sixth place finish. Kyle also picked up a brand new Lightning Wing after he destroyed his in a crash on Friday night.

Advancing 12 positions after having to race in through a B-Feature, Blake Hahn finished seventh with Alex Sewell climbing eight spots to finish eighth. Combined with his passing on Friday night, Sewell passed the most combined cars on the weekend. This earned the driver of the No. 8 a new Shaver/Wesmar Gear Drive.

Terry Gray was ninth from 14th with Zach Chappell completing the top-ten.
A field of 42 drivers made the call on Saturday night. Heat Races were topped by Dustin Gates, Thomas Kennedy, Jason McDougal, Zach Chappell, and Johnny Herrera. Qualifiers wen to Kyle Bellm, Fred Mattox, and Sean McClelland. The night's B-Mains went to Matt Covington and Mickey Walker. Provisionals were used by Logan Forler and Brandon Hanks.

Serving as the finale of the 2016 season for the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products, Tennessee's Brandon Hanks claimed his first ASCS sanctioned championship.

With two nights remaining in the 2016 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour lineup, the series will make its return of the Cocopah Speedway in Somerton, Ariz. on Friday, November 11 and Saturday, November 12.

Hafertepe Victorious in Lucas Oil ASCS Fall Fling Opener
SAPULPA, Okla. (November 4, 2016) Using a late race caution to his advantage, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. bounced his way around the infield berm to pick up his eighth victory of the season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, and first at the Creek County Speedway in the John Christner Trucking Fall Fling powered by Pizza Express.

"It was tough conditions. They re-worked the track there before that Midget main, and however we got by him, we got by him," said Hafertepe of the late race pass.

"It is what it is. Everyone doesn't see it the same way, but I don't make the rules. I just race the car, and we had a really good car tonight. Ryan did a hell of a job and we did the best we could do to come out on top."

Working through Heats and Qualifier to the fifth starting position in the Hwy. 79 Collision No. 15h, Hafertepe wasted no time advancing to a spot on the podium behind Blake Hahn and Wayne Johnson. Avoiding the spinning No. 52 while the field worked the second round, Sam leapt to the lead for a moment, but the caution would fly, thus sending Hafertepe back to second behind Wayne Johnson.

Chasing Johnson into slower traffic, the City Vending No. 2c make quick work of slower cars. Putting as many as four between himself and Hafertepe at one point, the Texas shoe has his hands full at both ends as Seth Bergman made his return well known with the pair exchanging the runner-up spot on Lap 10, and again on Lap 12 amid traffic and an eventual restart.

Giving chase to the No. 2c once again, Wayne seemed to have the field covered, but a caution on Lap 19 would be the difference as Hafertepe bonsaied the berm through turns one and two to take over the lead from Wayne Johnson. The pass, while unconventional, was enough to secure Hafertepe the win.

While displeased with the result, Wayne Johnson crossed second and locked into Saturday's A-Feature, stating simply. "The car was great, we just got beat in the infield," exclaimed Johnson.

With time out of the seat due to engine woes and the birth of his daughter, Seth Bergman returned to competition at the Creek County Speedway with a new setup that proved effective.

"That baby girl is probably the biggest win I've ever had, and we certainly can't hang our head about a podium finish. It's been along couple of months but to come out here with a new chassis, and new shock package on all four corners, it was different but we adapted and got a solid run out of it. Happy we can lock it in, and I feel we can players here tomorrow."

Battling several times with Seth for third, and then having to hold off the charge of Herrera, the Lubbock Wrecker No. 11x of John Carney II rolled to the fourth and final transfer into Saturday's A-Main. Johnny Herrera, who was on a rebound of sorts, from 10th held on to complete the top-five.

Recovering from the spin, Blake Hahn rolled across the line sixth with Sean McClelland clawing from 16th to seventh. Jason McDougal was eighth, followed by an impressive run by Alex Sewell from 17th to ninth. Logan Forler brought his No. 2L to a 10th place showing.

A field of 41 was on hand for the opening night of the John Christner Trucking Fall Fling powered by Pizza Express. Heat Races numbering five went to Thomas Kennedy, Wayne Johnson, Johnny Herrera, Sean McClelland, and Logan Forler. Qualifiers were topped by Brandon Hanks, Matt Covington, and Jason McDougal. B-Main wins went to Alex Sewell and Chance Morton.

Kyle Bellm utilized a Provisional start based on National Tour owner points. A Regional provisional was awarded to Kade Morton.

The John Christner Trucking Fall Fling powered by Pizza Express at Creek County Speedway continues on Saturday, November 5, 2016 with gates opening at 5:00 P.M. and racing at 7:00 P.M. (CDT).

ASCS Championship Chases Roll Into John Christner Trucking Fall Fling

TULSA, Okla. (November 2, 2016) The John Christner Trucking Fall Fling featuring the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network and Lucas Oil POWRi West Midgets is ready to roll with action on Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5 at the Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla.

With a solid field of drivers from as far away as Washington and Montana making their way to the "Sooner State" for the two day affair, the J.C.T. Fall Fling will be preceded by an open practice on Thursday, November 3.

While the Midgets are running simply for money and bragging rights, ASCS competition is another step in the championship chase for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour, and the final stop for the 2016 lineup with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products.

For the Red River Region, the weekend is about keeping out of trouble for Tennessee's Brandon Hanks, who carries a 123 point advantage into the series season finale. If Hanks can make it through Friday night, he'll clinch his first ASCS title.

On the National side of competition, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. rolls into the weekend 198 points to the good. In the series last outing at the Sapulpa, Okla. oval on June 16, Hafertepe ran to a third place finish. Being chased by Johnny Herrera, the New Mexico native posted a fifth place finish in the Speedweek event.

In 20 National Tour visits since 1993, neither of the top two drivers have posted a National Tour win at the Creek County Speedway. Regionally however, Herrera has one win with the Red River Region at Creek on April 10, 2015.

Including this weekend's Fall Fling, four nights of racing remain on the 2016 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour lineup with the series wrapping up their 25th year of competition at the Cocopah Speedway in Somerton, Ariz. on Friday, November 11 and Saturday, November 12. The 2016 finale will be paired with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region and will be filmed by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

Taking place Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5 the POWRi West Midgets will run two complete nights of racing with Friday's A-Feature offering $1,500 to win, $150 to start. Saturday will see that amount increased to $2,000 to win, $200 to start. All Non-Qualifiers will get $50 both nights.

For the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Friday's A-Feature will be $3,000 to win, $400 to start affair with Saturday's upping the payout to $4,000 to win, $400 to start. 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.

Adding to the mix, Wesmar Racing Engines has kicked in a Shaver/Wesmar Gear Drive for the driver who passes the most cars overall in A-Feature competition. Lightning Wings has also put a Top Wing up for grabs for the first person who ends up on their lid.

Sweet Victory For Carney At The Devil's Bowl

MESQUITE, Texas (October 15, 2016) "To finish first, you must first finish" is very applicable quote from legendary driver, Rick Mears, when talking about the race Saturday night at the Devil's Bowl Speedway as John Carney II held off several attempts from Sammy Swindell for the win in the 43rd annual Winter Nationals with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

With the rubber down on the Devil's Bowl, the race was about patience. Falling to second on the initial start, the caution brought the field back to a complete restart as four cars tangled on the front stretch.

Gluing the Lubbock Wrecker Service No. 11x to the hub, Carney was chased the first lap by Sammy Swindell before the caution flew upon completion of the opening lap for Travis Rilat who rolled to a stop exiting the third turn.

"I pretty much knew after I messed up on the first start, that if I ever gave him [Sammy] the bottom, he'd be able to beat me," said Carney. "With the track conditions like this, the win is pretty much a gift to myself but I'll take it either way."

At speed, Swindell all but pushed Carney around the famed half-mile. Never falling more than three car lengths from the No. 11x, Swindell's biggest opportunity to advance came on Lap 10. Missing the line, Carney slide wide off the second turn. With a haze of blue following, Swindell ran the nose of the Acme Graphix No. 3s to Carney's left rear but would have to roll out of the throttle to avoid the Hoosier climb.

All but beating the bumper off the No. 3s trying to rattle the El Paso native, Carney would not be shaken for his first career Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network A-Feature win. Carney is the 136th overall winner in Lucas Oil ASCS competition and fifth first time winner in 2016.

"It's a shame, we showed him where the line was. I had it on the start, and I knew what to do and where to go but we definitely had a faster car," said Swindell who crossed the checkered flag 0.388 seconds behind Carney.

"My corner speed was so much better, and to be able to run up behind someone that close, you usually lose the front end real bad but our car was able to just stay there and run with him. I was surprised at how good it was being that close too, but if we could have ever gotten out in the open; I was gone."

Riding third start to finish was Johnny Herrera.

"It was 25 laps, and I knew it was going to be hard on tires so I could have run up there and been on their back bumpers and ran third, or stayed conservative and been there if they bumped wheel and missed the rubber so I just rode."

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. trailed Herrera to the line with Aaron Reutzel coming across fifth. From ninth, Tony Bruce, Jr. was able to get to sixth with Andy Shouse digging his way from 17th to seventh. Brandon Long crossed eighth with Logan Forler mounting an impressive charge from 18th to ninth. Joe Wood, Jr. ended up rounding out the top-ten. Wood was one of the few drivers to try the high line.

Saturday's finale of the 43rd Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals saw 45 drivers checking in. Five Heat Races were topped by Josh Baughman, Alex Hill, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Jamie Ball, and Kevin Ramey. Qualifiers were won by Scottie McDonald, Tony Bruce, Jr. and Brandon Long. A pair of B-Features saw Andy Shouse and Logan Forler with wins. The night's only provisional was used by Brandon Hanks.

The next event for the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will be the Fall Fling at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. on Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5.

Johnny Herrera Unstoppable At The Devil's Bowl With The Lucas Oil ASCS

MESQUITE, Texas (October 14, 2016) With the engine going south under the bonnet of his machine just over half of Friday's feature event, Johnny Herrera was a man on a mission; parking his Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 45x in Victory Lane to open up the 43rd annual Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

Herrera's third career National Tour triumph at the famed half-mile, the win puts Johnny at six victories on the season with the Lucas Oil ASCS.

Taking the lead with a high-side pass on Josh Baughman off the fourth turn on Lap 14, Herrera was the second to challenge Baughman during the A-Feature as the No. 17 was challenged early by Martin Edwards who ran the Lanny's APCO No. 13 in honor of his grandfather, Lanny Edwards.

Going wheel to wheel through the third and fourth turns on Lap 2, the contact sent Edwards spinning. Dropping debris on the track in the process, Martin was sent to the tail.

With Herrera moving to second on the restart, it was a game of chase as the pair worked to traffic near the race's half-way point.

"She started laying down right when I started racing with Baughman when I was running the bottom there, and it didn't seem to hurt me at that point. I just kept running it and when that red came out, I just kept hoping it would take off again."

Speaking of the red for Josh Baughman that came with 21 laps complete, the big question was whether or not the No. 45x would even start again. With a small fire erupting from the oil that now covered the brakes, the flames soon extinguished themselves.

"The only way I'm pulling off is if she blows up," stated Herrera from the cockpit of the No. 45x at the time.

Stumbling and half running to the green, the engine finally cleaned out enough to get back to speed as Herrera restarted with a lapped car between himself and Aaron Reutzel. Unable to clear the slower car through the first two turns, it proved just enough to allow Herrera the advantage needed to hold onto the win.

"It didn't take off very good at all," explained Herrera. "Once I got it wound up, it came back but she's definitely hurt right now, but we got the win. We'll come back with a new bullet tomorrow and go again."

Locking the No. 87 into the show, Aaron Reutzel had his hands full most of the race as well with the track every changing.

"I wasn't expecting that one bit. Luckily I was able to the wing back and get a handle on it, but at the beginning, I thought I was just going to go backwards fast," said Aaron. "It took about half the race to get it figured out, then my throttle was sticking the first part of the race as well. I don't know if something got in it or what, but I just about ate the front stretch wall a few times. It made it hard to race people, but luckily it played out."

Taking advantage of the late race restart, John Carney II sailed the Lubbock Wrecker Service No. 11x from sixth to the final podium step after nearly getting tangled up in Baughman's flip.

"I was just glad I didn't get caught up in that deal. He turned right around in front of me and I almost didn't see him. He was backwards before I ever saw him, but on that restart, if they went low, I was going high or vice versa it didn't matter."

Also taking advantage of the restart was Sammy Swindell, who threaded the needle to take the final transfer into Saturday night. Matt Covington was one of the driver Sammy had to pass, and ended up completing the top-five.

Racing into the top-four just prior to the red, Blake Hahn slipped back to sixth with Danny Jennings advancing nine positions to seventh. Travis Rilat crossed eight with Wayne Johnson ninth. Zane Lawrence from 14th came up to round out the top-ten.

The opening night of the 43rd Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals saw 47 drivers draw in. Split into six Heat races, wins went to John Carney II, Chance Morton, Danny Jennings, Johnny Herrera, Wayne Johnson, and Josh Baughman. With the number of cars greater than 40, Qualifiers were run. Travis Rilat, Martin Edwards, and Matt Covington all scored wins. Twin B-Mains went to Andy Shouse and Kade Morton.

Provisionals were utilized by Logan Forler and Kyle Bellm. The night's regional provisional was awarded to Brandon Hanks.

The 43rd Devil's Bowl continues on Saturday, October 15, 2016 with gates opening at 6:00 P.M. and racing at 8:30 P.M. (CDT). To pay tribute to Lanny Edwards, the track is asking everyone to wear red in his honor. For more information on the Devil's Bowl Speedway, log onto http://www.devilsbowl.com.

Down To It: Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Leads The Way Into Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals
TULSA, Okla. (October 10, 2016) Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas is by far, of the most famous ovals in the world of Sprint Car racing and one of its biggest fans is Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Residing just down the road in Sunnyvale, Texas, Hafertepe turned some of his earliest laps in a Sprint Car at "The House that Lanny and Beverley Built".

Welcoming the stars of the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network for the 43rd running of the Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals on Friday, October 14 and Saturday, October 15, the weekend double-header is rounds 35 and 36 on the 2016 chase to the championship, which award $60,000 to the winner.

Hafertepe, who picked up a win this past Saturday with the ASCS Red River Region at Timberline Speedway, is the driver currently in line to pick up that check.

On the subject of the track and the championship chase, Sam commented, "This place means so much to me, and we have a lot of fans here, so we're coming in thinking about the sweep. I don't even think about the points because it is one of my better tracks and it's a place where we tend to excel over most. The way I look at it, if we were point's racing and watching it that hard, we wouldn't have the lead we have right now. The constant drive our teams has every night to win is what's propelled us to keep on spreading the lead out,"

For Sam, the win would back up his triumph from one year ago, when the Texas native returned to Lucas Oil ASCS Victory Lane for the first time since breaking his arm on May 1, 2015 while racing in Oklahoma.

"Anybody that knows me knows that the Devil's Bowl is my favorite track, and to win at a place like this; it's always special to me. Whether it was coming back from the broken arm or not. But I will say that win really meant that much more because it showed that we were ready to get back out on the road and get back full time with the ASCS National Tour."

While Hafertepe's focus is on winning, the weekend will also be about paying respect to Lanny Edwards.

"People don't realize what he's [Lanny Edwards] has done for the sport. To have the first World of Outlaws event held at his facility, and to do what he's done for Sprint Cars for so many years, there hasn't been another track in the DFW area that's consistently held Sprint Cars continuously year in, and year out," explained Hafertepe. "No one stuck their neck out for Sprint Car racing as much as he did so coming in there this year, it's definitely going to be different but we'll all be racing for him and what he did for the sport."

Leading the standings with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, the season is down to the nitty-gritty. With six nights left to crown a champion, Hafertepe enters the weekend double header with a 245 point advantage over Johnny Herrera.

In regards to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour triumphs at the Texas half-mile, Hafertepe and Herrera each enter the weekend with two as Herrera topped competition in 1996 and 2013. The pair are nearly equal in podium appearances, but the nod goes to Hafertepe with a half dozen to Johnny's five.

Chasing the pair at the top is Wayne Johnson. Despite being out of the reach for the championship, Johnson's record at the Devil's bowl makes him a statistical favorite for the win with 22 National Tour podium finishes to go along with nine wins; including the 2016 Spring Nationals.

Blake Hahn holds forth in tour standings. With a best finish of second at the Devil's Bowl in 2014, Hahn and Johnson have traded the show positions several times as Hahn currently trails the driver of the No. 2c by 96 markers. Rounding out the top five in Matt Covington. Another driver who holds the Devil's Bowl high on his list of favorite stops, Covington has finished on the podium six times in the series last nine visits.

Vying for a spot inside the top-five, Logan Forler trails Covington by only five points. Both are still in search of their first National Tour win of 2016 while Matt looks to add another Devil's Bowl win to his resume. Just off his first career win at the famed Eldora Speedway with the NRA Sprint Invaders this past weekend, seventh running Aaron Reutzel has a best finish of third at the Devil's Bowl with the National Tour. Seth Bergman, who won in 2014, holds eighth with Josh Baughman and Kyle Bellm completing the top-ten. Bellm found Victory Lane in March, 2013.

In line to be races 85 and 86 for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour at the Devil's Bowl Speedway, Friday, October 14 and Saturday, October 15 open at 6:00 P.M. with races getting underway at 8:00 P.M.

QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (October 8, 2016) For the second time in 2016, Arizona's Colton Hardy ended his night in the best way possible; atop the podium at the Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region.

The eighth time the driver of the Bandit Racing No. 74 has appeared on the podium in 2016, Colton spent over half the race giving chase as Jeff Slinkard won the drag race of the front row for the point, but was not able to hold off the charge of Colton Hardy who snuck by on the 18th round.

Jeff Slinkard held on for second with Bob Ream, Jr. advancing four spots to take the bronze position. Matt Rossi from ninth was fourth with Montana's Jeremy McCune making up the top-five. Casey Buckman was sixth followed by Josh Shipley. Hard Charging from 15th, Billy Chester III was eighth with James Mosher and J.T. Imperial completing the top-ten.

Tightening up the race for the championship even further, Hardy now sits only 17 points removed from the lead which is still held by New Mexico's Rick Ziehl whose night ended with a 12th place performance. Trailing closely in third is Bob Ream, Jr.

The next outing for the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region will be Friday, November 11 and Saturday, November 12 with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network at the Cocopah Speedway in Somerton, Ariz.

TULSA, Okla. (October 3, 2016) A $2,000 payday awaits the winner of this weekend's Lone Star Shootout at Timberline Speedway in Corley, Texas as the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products invades the high-banked, three-eighths mile on Saturday, October 8.

The only trip of the 2016 season to the Timberline Speedway for the ASCS Red River Region, the series last trip to the far-east Texas oval came on October 2, 2015 with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. earning the victory in the inaugural Lone Star Shootout. Previous to Sam's win, Johnny Herrera parked his No. 45x in Victory Lane on May 22, 2015.

This Saturday's showdown is the final standalone event for the ASCS Red River Region, who will be paired up with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour for the Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals on October 14 and 15 and the Fall Fling at Creek County Speedway on November 4 and 5.

Looking to keep with the theme of variety, a dozen drivers have found victory with the ASCS Red River Region in 2016 in 15 nights of competition across Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Texas.

Brandon Hanks, who leads ASCS Red River Region points, is tied at the top with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. and Wayne Johnson for most wins on the season with two. Hank's most recent victory came on July 9 at the Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla.

Holding a commanding 183 point advantage over 2015 series champion, Kade Morton, the Oklahoma native is still in search of victory in 2016, having a best finish thus far of sixth. Fred Mattox holds third with Jake Greider fourth. The Kansas racer, looks to carry momentum into Texas following a win this past weekend at 81-Speedway in Park City, Kan. Rounding out the top five in tour standing is Mickey Walker.

Chance Morton holds sixth with John Carney II, Jared Sewell, Charles McManus, and Kevin Ramey completing the top-ten.

Terry McCarl Holds On For Fall Brawl Glory At I-80 Speedway

GREENWOOD, Neb. (October 1, 2016) Victory was sweet on Saturday night as the fifth annual Casey's Mid-West Fall Brawl at I-80 Speedway did not disappoint as Terry McCarl parked TheSnowPlow.com/Searsboro Telephone No. 24 in Victory Lane with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network for a cool $6,000 plus an additional $1,750 in lap money.

T-Mac's first National Tour triumph of the 2016 season, the Iowa shoe had to hold off several challenges throughout the 35 lap affair.

"You want to be on the front, but those guys behind me were good and as usual the track was amazing," commented McCarl on the front stretch.

"This may be my favorite track in the country because when you come here there's a top, a middle, and a bottom but it made it tough for me leading. My car was good, but I just didn't know where to go and the No. 82 got by me there on the bottom in traffic so I jumped down there and I didn't hear anybody after that. I figured Jack [Dover] was coming. I felt a lot better on the top of one and two, and I figured he was catching me there."

Challenged early by Jack Dover as the race found slower traffic, the two front runners were lucky to make it the distance as drivers at the back of the field piled up with 11 laps complete. Taking out seven, and flipping five, all drivers were able to walk away. Among the collected, Matt Covington and Don Droud, Jr. were able to return to competition.

Utilizing an open red, Dover worked a gear change to try and run with the No. 24 but would end up falling back as Thomas Kennedy's No. 82 came to life. Advanced to fourth following the red, Kennedy found second on Lap 17. Running down McCarl's straightaway advantage, the Buffalo Wild Wings No. 82 went to work on McCarl as the pair hit slower traffic. Glued to the hub of the I-80 Speedway, Kennedy stole the lead for a brief moment, only to have the crafty veteran in the No. 24 turn down and around to retake the point.

Caution on Lap 30 for Josh Riggins, the restart was called back. Having fought to third, Wayne Johnson slowed suddenly with his brakes failing completely on the restart, causing the field to accordion off the fourth turn.Back to green, the race was on the cushion as Jack Dover was back to third. Digging his Hoosier into the massive I-80 Speedway cushion, the Speedway Graphics No. 53 was inches off the wall and closing on McCarl.

Game on as the white flag flew, Dover nearly tapped the wall off the exit of two; giving up just enough for McCarl to stave off any last lap attempt for the win.

On the runner-up finish, Dover said, "There on that open red, we switched the gear and I think that's the difference between me talking about second and first right now. I think if we would have left the gears along, we could have worked around Terry, but I'm not disappointed. Anytime you can run second with the National guys, especially having not run with them for about five years, it's a good night."

Earning the night's Searsboro Telephone Hard Charger award worth $1,000, Aaron Reutzel came from 13th to complete the podium.

"We were good. Way better than when we unloaded," stated Aaron.

"Me and J.J. [Simmons] are just kind of stuck in our ways of what we did last year and I really figured we would have learned our lesson after last week when we weren't very good and worked on it until we figured out what the car liked, but we were so fast year last year so we unloaded with the same setup and just had to keep working and working and actually had almost the same setup we had at Lucas Oil Speedway."

Aaron also picked up an extra $500 from Electric Systems in the Podium Draw thanks to Terry McCarl.

After batting for the lead, Thomas Kennedy slipped back to finish fourth with Josh Baughman coming from 10th to complete the top-five. Justin Henderson sixth was followed by Carson McCarl. Blake Hahn from 12th crossed eighth with Cody Ledger ninth. From 17th, Ryan Roberts clawed his way to a tenth place showing.

Utilizing a unique format for the I-80 Speedway, twin Heat Races were run for 10 total Heats. Wins went to Josh Baughman, Tyler Drueke, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Rager Phillips, and Carson McCarl in the first set. The second set was topped by Terry McCarl, Jonathan Cornell, Josh Baughman, Wayne Johnson, and Jack Dover. Twin Dashes to set the Top-16 lineup in the A-Feature were won by Rager Phillips and Terry McCarl. B-Mains were won by Ryan Robers and Seth Brahmer.

Provisionals went to Logan Forler and Matt Covington for the Lucas Oil ASCS. Co-Sanctioned with the Carpet Land Nebraska 360's, Stu Snyder and Don Droud, Jr. were the recipients.

Up next, the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will head south for the Devil's Bowl Speedway and the Winter Nationals on October 14-15. For more information on the Devil's Bowl, log onto http://www.devilsbowl.com.

It's Fall Brawl Weekend For The Lucas Oil ASCS At I-80 Speedway

TULSA, Okla. (September 28, 2016) Just off the Hockett/McMillin Memorial, another big night of racing is on tap for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network as the series heads for the world famous high-banks of the I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. on Saturday, October 1 for the $6,000 to win Casey's General Store Fall Brawl.

A look at the history of the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network at I-80 Speedway finds 14 previous A-Features since 1996. In last year's edition, double features were contested as rain shortened the two day affair to a single night race. Justin Henderson and Billy Alley each garnered victories. Utilizing the a unique format used at I-80 Speedway's Silver Dollar Nationals, the format was explained by I-80 Speedway staff:

"The event will also have a unique format that has been very successful at I-80's Silver Dollar Nationals. Each driver will run two heat races. The first heat will be lined up by the draw and the next heat that a driver is in, they will start exactly opposite of how they started their first heat (Example: If you start your first heat on the pole, you will start your second heat dead last). The top 16 in passing points from the double heats will qualify for the A Feature. 7th thru 16th will then run a six-lap position race with the top 4 to join the top six qualifiers in a fast dash. The finish of the fast dash will set the top ten spots in the feature. The position race will determine starting positions 11 through 16 in the feature."

On top of the $6,000 winner's check, Searsboro Telephone Co. will payout $1,000 to the night's Hard Charger to go along with $3,500 in Lap Sponsors. Electrical Systems will also do a $500 random draw.

"We're excited for this weekend," said I-80 Speedway Promoter, Joe Kosiski. "We want to see great racing and give the fans plenty of Sprint Car racing."

The site of one of Wayne Johnson's biggest career victories, the Oklahoma native rolls into the weekend fresh off a $10,000 score at the Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway. Retaking third in tour stands from Blake Hahn, the driver of the No. 2c is set on racking up wins from this point forward.

While everyone chases Sam Hafertepe, Jr. the Texas native holds a 245 point margin over his closest advisory, Johnny Herrera. Adding his fifth National Tour triumph this past Thursday at Lucas Oil Speedway, Herrera is safely in the second spot with time to close the gap on the season championship.

While Johnson and Hahn find themselves in a close fight for third, Matt Covington holds down the fifth spot in tour standings with Logan Forler closing that gap following his 15th career National Tour podium finish this past Saturday. Seth Bergman holds seventh with Aaron Reutzel eighth. Josh Baughman and Kyle Bellm make up the series top-ten.

Saturday, October 1 at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. will get underway with Hot Laps at 5:15 P.M. (CDT). For more information on the four-tenths mile oval, log onto http://www.i-80speedway.com.

Championship Weekend On Tap For ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints
TULSA, Okla. (September 28, 2016) Taking on their first season under the ASCS banner, the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints will bring the 2016 lineup to a close this Saturday, October 1 at the Southern Raceway in Milton, Fla.

Seeing action at the Southern Raceway twice in 2016, Morgan Turpen and Kyle Amerson each earned their first career victories with the ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints at the Florida oval with Turpen topping action on May 21. Amerson saw Victory Lane on September 3.


Going into the Saturday showdown, the championship is still within reach for Kyle Amerson who trails Michael Miller by 81 markers. Outside Miller not showing up, a driver can conceivable make up 100 points in a night. That perfect, yet unwanted storm, involves a driver drawing in, but not being able to compete. In that case, 50 show-up point are awarded. To get the 100 marker jump, Amerson would have to win, but a third place finish would do as well.

As it stands now, if Miller makes the A-Feature on Saturday, he will hang on to the title. The win would be Miller's third series title in the past four years, and first under the ASCS banner.

Holding third is Shane Morgan with Joey Schmidt and Tristan Lee making up the top five in tour standings. Ryan Moore holds sixth with Brandon Blendon, Timmy Thrash, Marshall Skinner, and Derek Hagar rounding out the top ten.

So far this season, 10 drivers have earned at least one victory with the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints in 16 nights of competition. Brian Bell and Michael Miller top the list with three wins each. Shane Morgan is the only other multi time winner with a pair of triumphs.

Saturday, October 1 at Southern Raceway, gates will open at 4:30 P.M. with racing at 7:30 P.M. (EDT). The night will also include Pure Stocks, NeSmith Street Stocks, Modifieds, and Vintage. Admission is $15 for adults with kids five and under admitted free into the grandstands. For more information, log onto http://www.southernraceway.com.

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

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.

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.

(ASCS / TMS Staff Photo)

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.

Up next of for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is the, $10,000 to win sixth annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial at the Lucas Oil Speedway, happening September 22-24, 2016 at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo.

HIGHLANDS, Texas (September 3, 2016) Making his 19th career trip to Victory Lane with the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region presented by Southern Trailer Works, Channin Tankersley sewed up second series championship over the past three years in the G3 Boats No. 14 with a win at the Battleground Speedway in Highlands, Texas on Saturday, September 3.

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. B-Mains were topped by Skylar Prochaska and Matt Covington. Johnny Herrera was the night's High Point driver out of the Heat Races. No provisional starts were used.

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

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:

Thursday and Friday:

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.

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.

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.

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.

Brian Bell Wins ASCS/USCS Showdown At Jackson Motor Speedway

BYRAM, Miss. (August 13, 2016) For the third time in 2016, Tennessee's Brian Bell parked the FSR Radiator No. 23b in Victory Lane with the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints, earning the top spot on the podium at the Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram, Miss. to give the nod to the American Sprint Car Series in the showdown with the USCS.

Bell's fourth career win with the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints, Bell bested 25 other drivers at the slick three-eighths mile oval to earn the night's $3,500 top prize.

From 10th, current USCS point's leader, Morgan Turpen, crossed fourth with Washington's Seth Bergman rounding out the top-five. Terry Gray followed with Koty Adams from 14th to seventh. Shane Morgan was eighth from 13th with Kyle Amerson ninth. Derek Hagar completed the top-ten in the No. 9jr.

Ned Powers Returns To Victory Lane With ASCS Frontier At Gillette Thunder Speedway

GILLETTE, Wy. (August 13, 2016) The Bullet from Belle Fourche was just that on Saturday night. Besting a lineup of 19 other drivers, Ned Powers was the class of the field with the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region; winning at the Gillette Thunder Speedway for his first ASCS Regional score since 2009.

Powers' first win with the Frontier Region, the triumph is his fourth career ASCS Regional win, as the Saturday night trip atop the podium comes almost seven years to the day when the South Dakota driver stood in Victory Lane with the ASCS Rocky Mountain Region on August 29, 2009 at the very same Wyoming oval.

Leading from the pole on the very slick Gillette Thunder Speedway, Powers was chased to the finish by Corey Brink with Washington's Logan Forler coming from seventh to take the final podium step. Current Brodix ASCS Frontier Region point's leader, Skylar Gee, came from eighth to fourth with D.J. Brink following in fifth.

Eric Flatmoe was sixth with Shad Peterson seventh. From 13th, Damon McCune crossed eighth with Rich Martin and Jeremy McCune from 19th to complete the top-ten.

The Brodix ASCS Frontier Region is Montana bound with the next outing slated for Friday August 19 and Saturday, August 20 at the Electric City Speedway in Great Falls, Mont. The two night run is the first of five straight at the Great Falls oval, with three nights on tap over the Labor Day Weekend.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tim Crawley Is Super at Superbowl Speedway With ASCS Red River
 

GREENVILLE, Texas (July 16, 2016) It is rare to say Tim Crawley is a first time winner, but it does happen on occasion, and Saturday was just right for that as the wily veteran picked up his first career victory with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products at the Superbowl Speedway in Greenville, Texas.

The eighth different ASCS Region that Crawley has at least one victory in over the years, Saturday’s win by the Arkansas native is the second time in as many days for a driver to add their name to the list of winners with the Red River Region to bring the year’s total to 11 winners.

Overall, Tim has 18 ASCS Regional triumphs to go along with 45 Lucas Oil ASCS National victories.

Drawing the pole, Crawley led non-stop at the Texas quarter mile in the Mike Ward Motorsports No. 88. Chased to the line by Kevin Ramey, the final podium step was claimed by Friday’s winner, Ray Allen Kulhanek. Brandon Hanks climbed five spots to fourth with Kade Morton rounding out the top-five.

Claud Estes raced to a sixth place finish, followed by Raven Culp from 11th. Bryan Debrick from 14th was eighth with Jared Sewell claiming Hard Charger with an 18th to ninth showing. Tying the efforts of Sewell, Junior Jenkins completed the top-ten.

The American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products beings its run down the home stretch as five night of racing remain in the 2016 lineup. The series returns to the Superbowl Speedway on August 27.

QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (July 9, 2016) New Mexico's Rick Ziehl was the first man to the finish line on Saturday night with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region, as the tour saw action at the Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek.

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.

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.

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. The $15,000 to win event is expected to draw close to 60 of the nation's best drivers. For more information on Dirt Cup, log onto http://www.skagitspeedway.com/.

Brad Loyet Masters The Historic Half-Mile With The Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour
SEDALIA, Mo. (June 17, 2016) After a terrible night at the track on Thursday at the Creek County Speedway, Friday's performance at the Missouri State Fair Speedway made the sting disappear as Missouri's Brad Loyet parked the Vacuworx Global/Buddy Loyet Motorsports No. 05 in Victory Lane for the second time in 2016 with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, and first time at the "Historic Half-Mile".


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.

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.

The 24th ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek continues at the Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. on Thursday, June 16 with races getting underway at 8:00 P.M. (CDT). For more information on the Oklahoma oval, log onto http://www.creekcountyspeedway.co.

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.

Skylar Gee Breaks Through In 2016 Brodix ASCS Frontier Opener At Gallatin Speedway
BELGRADE, Mont. (June 3, 2016) A race with three different leaders, in the end, it was Canada's Skylar Gee who finally added his name to the list of winners with the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region, topping the field at Belgrade's Gallatin Speedway to open up the 2016 season with the Frontier Region.

Kelly Miller crossed fourth with D.J. Brink, who led the opening five rounds, slipping to complete the top-five. Bryan Gossel was sixth with Joe Perry from 14th to seventh. Josh Ostermiller was eight with Bryan Brown from 15th to ninth. David Hoiness rounded out the top-ten.

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. Matt Covington crossed eighth with Seth Bergman ninth after also having to come from the back due to a visit to the work area. Jeremy Campbell completed the night's top-ten.

With 26 drivers making the call, three ButlerBuilt Heat Races went to Blake Hahn, Josh Baughman, and Johnny Herrera. The night's BMRS B-Feature was topped by Andy Teunessen. No Provisionals were taking into the A-Feature. The night's FSR Radiator High Point Driver was Blake Hahn.

With Brownstown Speedway called off due to rain, the next event for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will be Saturday, June 11 at the Rt. 66 Motor Speedway in Amarillo, Texas.

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. Caution working Lap 3, the restart had Cornell all over the back bumper of the No. 38. Looking at all avenues, the chance to strike came on Lap 6 as Cornell held the lead by a nose at the line.

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.

The Tiger Towing High Point Driver of the Night was Corey Nelson, who also took the challenge. The No. 34 made it up to 13th.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"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.

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.

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.

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.

TULSA, Okla.

Reutzel's trio of Nolan Wren Memorial scores puts him atop the list of visits to Victory Lane. Chris Sweeney, Jason Johnson, and Ray Allen Kulhanek complete the list of multi time winners with a pair each.

Taking in the season's first two nights of racing this past weekend with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour at the Cotton Bowl Speedway and Bronco Raceway Park, regional standings shows a tie at the top between Ray Allen Kulhanek and Scottie McDonald.

Travis Rilat holds third only five points behind with Channin Tankersley and Tommy Bryant making up the top-five. Zane Lawrence, Dustin Gates, J.J. Simmons, Michael McNeil, and John Pate complete the top-ten going into this weekend.

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 g
