Cole Duncan gets by Danny Dietrich in final corner for Fremont Speedweek victory

FREMONT, Ohio (June 12, 2021) - Leading the only lap that matters, Lockbourne, Ohio’s Cole Duncan put FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 fans on their feet Saturday night at Fremont Speedway, capping round two of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires with a last lap pass, a last corner pass, over race-long leader and Pennsylvania Posse invader, Danny Dietrich. The last-ditch effort not only secured a $6,000 payday for Duncan, pilot of the Helms Construction/Ohio Heating/No. 22C sprint car, but also a fifth-career victory against the Tony Stewart-owned organization, his first at “The Track That Action Built” and his first Series win since 2018.

Impressive enough, Duncan’s Fremont performance also solidified Hercules Tires Hard Charger honors, as his victory march commenced from eighth on the grid.

“That was one hell of a race,” an elated Duncan said in victory lane, who officially passed his father, Rodney, on the all-time All Star wins list; Rodney owns four. “I look up to my dad a lot and to pass him in the win column, in this fashion, is pretty cool. These All Star wins are tough to come by. This is a really tough field of cars and I’m not sure it’s been this tough since my dad raced with the Series in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. As soon as I got the wing back, I knew we were going to be good tonight. I just want to thank all of the fans for coming out. This is one heck of a crowd.”

Despite starting eighth on the 40-lap grid, Duncan proved his winning potential right from the drop of the initial green, powering his way to fifth by lap six before utilizing a pair of back-to-back lap nine cautions to climb his way to third. Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck raced just ahead of Duncan in second with Danny Dietrich holding down the fort at the front of the field.

The main event’s final caution appeared on lap 13 setting up what would ultimately turn into a long-winded, 27-lap battle for the top three positions. For Duncan, it was all about patience, as well as perseverance, working every inch of Fremont Speedway’s wide and slick surface to keep pace with Dietrich and Peck, even as the front runners weaved through traffic which appeared for the first time on lap 20.

Lap after lap, Duncan hounded Peck for second, soon relying on a slingshot move to get by the Buch Motorsports entry, doing so through turns three and four while leaning on a thin and quickly fading cushion. Duncan’s lap 31 move on Peck would come into play one more time before the conclusion of the 40-lapper, but not until the last 50 yards. All over Dietrich at the white flag, Duncan set up his winning move at the exit of turn two, powering down the backstretch before returning to the turn three cushion. Dietrich did his best to block at the exit of turn four, but Duncan found his way through, narrowly escaping contact with the Gettsyburg-native and the turn four wall.

“I’ve never had that much patience in my life,” an exhausted Duncan continued. “I knew I had a run off of two on Danny, and I knew Peck was making the bottom work in three but I was better on the top. I figured if I showed Danny my nose, he was going to block that line, so I said ‘screw it’ and hung it out on top. He raced me clean though coming off of the corner. I don’t think you could have put a piece of paper between our wheels and my wheels and the wall.”

“He was coming,” Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing No. 48. “I tried to lean on him a little bit to hopefully get him to check up so I could beat him back to the line. Cole is always good here. It’s just a tough one to swallow after leading that many laps. Thank all of you fans for coming out. We love coming to Ohio. Ohio puts on the best racing, in my opinion.”

Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires will continue on Monday, June 14, at the home of “Orrville’s Historic Oval” - Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio. Like the opening rounds, the Wayne County stop will award a $6,000 payday.

Ian Madsen kicks-off Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires with victory at Attica Raceway Park​

ATTICA, Ohio (June 11, 2021) - To say Ian Madsen and Sam McGhee Motorsports have been close to victory is a slight understatement. After five runner-up finishes during FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 competition thus far in 2021, Ian Madsen is finally a winner, breaking through during night one of the 39th running of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio. With his victory, Madsen is also the official Speedweek points leader, one step closer to the $5,000 championship check that will be awarded at the conclusion of the eight-race/nine-day campaign on Saturday, June 19.

In addition, the $6,000 Attica triumph was Madsen’s first trip to All Star victory lane since Four Crown Nationals competition at Eldora Speedway in 2016. Madsen now owns a grand total of four All Star victories.

“This is kinda unreal. I’m a little speechless right now,” Ian Madsen said in Attica Raceway Park victory lane. “It’s been so long since I won a race and it’s an incredible feeling to finally do it again. I can’t thank Sam McGhee Motorsports enough for giving me the opportunity this year. These guys took a chance on me to come out here and win races this year. We’ve been painfully close so many times. It feels awesome to get the first one.”

After a hard-fought battle for second with the Coldren Motorsports entry piloted by Skylar Gee, taking the position officially on lap eight, Ian Madsen set his aim on race leader and outside-pole sitter, Justin Peck. Peck, who opened up to a stout advantage, found himself dancing with lapped cars by lap 10, which allowed Madsen to close the gap.

By lap 12, Madsen had all but caught the Buch Motorsports No. 13, eventually sneaking by his fellow All Star championship contender on the bottom of turn four the following circuit. Refusing to give up, Peck tried his best to get back by the Mike McGhee & Associates No. 11, working up a wicked slider through turns three and four on lap 15. Incidental contact between the two would ultimately lead to Peck spinning to a stop at the top of turn four; Madsen would survive and maintain the point position.

The remainder of Madsen’s effort would see little in the form of challenges. A series of cautions would keep the St. Marys, New South Wales, Australia-native out of thick traffic and out of harm's way. Cory Eliason would battle ahead from fifth to finish second, followed by Skylar Gee, Cole Macedo, and Tyler Courtney, who rallied from 15th to claim his top-five outcome.

“You really can’t pace yourself when you have guys like Cory (Eliason) behind you,” Ian Madsen continued. “I ended up moving down the track, which made me a little nervous, but it all worked out.”

Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires will continue on Saturday, June 12, at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio. If necessary, Sunday, June 13, slated to be an off day, will be used as Fremont’s rain date.

39th edition of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires commences Friday at Attica

$12,000 points fund to be awarded to top-five in Speedweek standings

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 9, 2021) - Perhaps the most grueling nine days in all of motorsports, as well as the pinnacle of the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 season, the 39th edition of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires is set to blast off on Friday evening, June 11, activating an eight-race/nine-day brawl across the Buckeye State.

Set to face-off against a stout contingent of local and regional competition, the traveling All Stars will compete at eight different ovals during their 2021 Ohio Sprint Speedweek campaign, battling for a total winner’s share equaling $59,554. In addition, a $12,000 Ohio Sprint Speedweek points fund will be spread among the top-five in the final Speedweek standings; $5,000 awarded to the champion and $2,500, $2,000, $1,500, and $1,000 awarded to second through fifth, respectively.

Ohio Sprint Speedweek will kick-off, officially, with a visit to Attica Raceway Park on Friday, June 11, followed by a stop just 45 minutes northwest at Fremont Speedway on Saturday, June 12. The only off day on the schedule, Sunday, June 13, will also be utilized as a rain date for the Attica and Fremont events. Speedweek competition will resume on Monday, June 14, with a visit to “Orrville's Historic Oval” at Wayne County Speedway, flanked by a stop further east at Sharon Speedway in Hartford on Tuesday, June 15.

Back-to-back visits to Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield and Muskingum County Speedway in Dresden will take up the mid-week segment of the Ohio Sprint Speedweek agenda on Wednesday and Thursday, June 16-17, followed by an appearance at the bullring at Limaland Motorsports Park on Friday, June 18. The first seven stops on the schedule will award $6,000 top prizes.

Concluding the 39th running of Ohio Sprint Speedweek, the annual Dean Knittel Memorial, once again contested at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, will cap the eight-race march with a $17,554-to-win blockbuster on Saturday, June 19; a $2,000 bump from the year prior. Boasting a total purse exceeding $60,000, the Dean Knittel Memorial will guarantee a minimum of $954 to each A-Main starter. Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson is the defending Knittel winner; one of 14 All Star victories for “Yung Money” in 2020.

Three-time All Star champion and Clute, Texas-native, Aaron Reutzel is the defending Ohio Sprint Speedweek titleholder, scoring a Fremont Speedway win along the way before capping his championship run by 82 markers over Vienna, West Virginia’s Cale Conley. Nashville, Tennessee’s Paul McMahan was third in the 2020 Ohio Sprint Speedweek standings, followed by Cory Eliason and Zeb Wise.

Kyle Larson, the aforementioned defending champion of the Dean Knittel Memorial/Speedweek finale, scored two Speedweek victories in 2020, the first occurring just two nights prior of the Knittel at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex.

Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry, who has since returned to the road as a full-time All Star competitor, also scored a pair of Speedweek victories last season; first during opening night at Attica Raceway Park and the second just three starts later at Wayne County Speedway.

A pair of Californians in Buddy Kofoid and Rico Abreu each scored one Speedweek win in 2020, doing so at Fremont Speedway and Muskingum County Speedway, respectively.

National Sprint Car Hall of Famer and Hartford, Ohio-native, Dale Blaney is the all-time leading champion of Ohio Sprint Speedweek, scoring a total of six titles between 1995 and 2019, three of which accomplished in four years. Other multi-time Ohio Sprint Speedweek champions include Frankie Kerr (4), Tim Shaffer (3), Stevie Smith (2), Sammy Swindell (2), Joey Saldana (2), and Chad Kemenah (2).

The only active All Star who has earned a Speedweek championship is Paul McMahan. The pilot of the CJB Motorsports entry, who is currently eighth in the All Star driver standings despite a late start in establishing “full-time” status for CJB, earned his Speedweek title in 2018, opening the week with a victory at Attica Raceway Park.

“Sunshine” Tyler Courtney will lead the traveling All Stars into Ohio Sprint Speedweek competition as the leading Series championship contender, scoring five victories to date with his most recent at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin, on Friday, June 4. Ian Madsen, who is on a stretch of three consecutive runner-up finishes, is second in the title chase, followed by Hunter Schuerenberg, Bill Balog, and Cory Eliason.

Courtney may be the championship leader, but the “Northpole Nightmare” Bill Balog is the hottest competitor on tour currently, scoring the last two All Star victories, the first two of his career, while jumping ahead to fourth in the driver standings. Balog earned his All Star triumphs at Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wisconsin, and Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, on Saturday and Sunday, June 5-6, respectively.

Bill Balog goes back-to-back in Wisconsin with All Star victory at Angell Park Speedway

SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. (June 6, 2021) - It took Bill Balog 38 tries to score a first-ever victory with the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1, but less than 24 hours later, the “Northpole Nightmare” is a winner again, this time at the Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, on Sunday, June 6. Earning a $6,000 top prize for his efforts, the All Stars versus IRA challenge victory not only doubled Balog’s All Star career win total to two, but it also bumped his all-time IRA Outlaw Sprint Series win total to 130; he is a ten-time Series champion and the all-time leading winner.

“It was great to get it done last night, but I can’t believe we did it again,” Bill Balog said in Angell Park Speedway victory lane, driver of the B Squared Motorsports/Anderson's Pure Maple Syrup/CK Contractors LLC/Buesser Concrete/Wisecup Siding, Howard Law/Wayne Corini CPA/No. 17B sprint car. “This team has a lot of confidence right now. We’ve always had confidence, even during some of the ‘DNFs’ we had earlier in the year. We’re working hard and the speed is there. My mom, my sister, my brother-in-law, my nephews; they are all here in the stands down from Alaska, so it’s great to have them here celebrating with us.”

Utilizing the pole position by way of dash victory, St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu earned the initial lead and maintained the point position for the first nine circuits, becoming acquainted with slower traffic along the way. Refusing to allow Abreu to disappear, Balog, who joined Abreu on the front row, kept the Rowdy Energy No. 24 in sight, creeping to his back bumper by lap nine before making his first official bid for the lead the following circuit.

After his failed attempt to get by Abreu on lap 10, losing in a drag race out of turn four, Balog redeemed himself and did one move better the following lap, eventually catapulting around Abreu at the exit of turn four before completing lap 11. Balog’s slingshot move was initiated when Abreu attempted to get through the corner on the bottom, ultimately missing the moisture and allowing Balog to drive by.

From that point forward, it was all Balog at the front of the field, withstanding one final slide job attempt by Abreu after a restart on lap 19. Abreu’s move did not stick and Balog drove on to score the $6,000 payday.

“Our car is really good when it’s slick to a curb like this,” Balog continued. “A lot of the tracks next week get like that, so I think we’ll be in pretty good shape for Ohio Sprint Speedweek. I just gotta keep this thing in one piece because it’s really good right now.”

Ian Madsen, who worked beyond Abreu with two to go to secure a third consecutive runner-up finish, crossed the line behind Balog, followed by Abreu, a hard-charging Cap Henry, and Cory Eliason.

The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their 2021 campaign with Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires on Friday through Saturday, June 11-19. Action will kick-off, officially, on Friday evening, June 11, at the Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio.

Bill Balog breaks through at Plymouth Dirt Track for first-ever All Star win

PLYMOUTH, Wis. (June 5, 2021) - It has been a long time coming for the ten-time IRA Outlaw Sprint Series champion, but the “Northpole Nightmare” Bill Balog can now, finally, call himself a FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, earning his place in the Series’ history book with a dominating victory in front of a packed house at the Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wisconsin.

Balog, driver of the B Squared Motorsports/Anderson's Pure Maple Syrup/CK Contractors LLC/Buesser Concrete/Wisecup Siding, Howard Law/Wayne Corini CPA/No. 17B sprint car, led 26 laps of the non-stop 30-lap program, utilizing his front row starting position to set up his eventual slider for the lead over Ian Madsen on lap five. From that point forward, it was all Bill Balog, cruising on to secure the All Stars versus IRA challenge win for a $6,000 top prize.

“This is unbelievable. I didn’t want to give that one away, I’ll tell ya,” Bill Balog said after his Plymouth Dirt Track win. “I can’t believe we finally did it. These All Star guys are really competitive. They don’t like to give wins away. I’ve been very welcomed with this Series and it’s awesome, but at the same time, the drivers and teams are really intense. They don’t want you to win.”

It was a convincing victory, nonetheless, actually charging out to a near-half-track advantage by halfway. But the North Pole, Alaska, transplant did have some opposition during his campaign, all of which in the form of lapped traffic. Slower cars entered the picture for the first time on lap eight, not distracting Balog initially, as the all-time IRA win leader put most of the back runners a lap down with ease. It was not until lap 22 when things started to get interesting.

With victory less than ten laps away, a wall of traffic consisting of eight cars flooded the racing lane ahead of Balog. Maneuvering methodically, Balog withstood the mess, getting crossed up on the cushion only once. Without saying, Balog held strong, ultimately crossing under the final checkers with a margin of victory equaling six seconds.

“I was probably pushing a little too hard,” Balog said. “Honestly, when I slowed down a little bit, I got really tight. So I just had to go pretty much as hard as I could the whole time. You can almost hear the guys behind you even if they’re not there. It makes you push harder. I don’t know if that’s good or bad.

“All I could think about when I got to the mess of lapped cars was ‘don’t spin out in front of me,’” Balog continued. “My car was so good, so I could slide them when I got to them.”

Ian Madsen hung on to finish second at the Plymouth short track, followed by Rico Abreu, Spencer Bayston, and Tyler Courtney.

A Sunday night visit to Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, will conclude the All Stars versus IRA challenge weekend. Like the two nights pior, the weekend finale will feature a $6,000-to-win main event.

Tyler Courtney wins in Wilmot for fifth All Star victory of 2021

WILMOT, Wis. (June 4, 2021) - “Sunshine” Tyler Courtney made it look easy on Friday night at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin, smooth sailing from the pole position to not only claim his fifth FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory of the 2021 season, his second in two days, but doing so in dominating fashion, ending the 30-lap All Stars versus IRA Outlaw Sprint Series contest by a final margin of victory equaling just over five seconds, lapping up to the 13th position in the process.

“This is a lot of fun, and when you have a great race car like this, you have to capitalize on it,” Tyler Courtney said in Wilmot victory lane. “Times like these come and go, but luckily we’re on the coming side of that right now. I just can’t say enough about this team. This whole Clauson Marshall deal is going really well right now. I don’t even know what to say, to be honest.”

Courtney, aboard the Clauson Marshall Racing/NOS Energy Drink/Turbo/No. 7BC sprint car, led each and every circuit at the Wilmot short track, and although the Indianapolis, Indiana-native maintained the point relatively unchallenged, lapped traffic between laps 15 and 20 did present a potential problem for the former USAC champion and the current All Star championship points leader. In fact, it was a five-car road block that Courtney was up against, but after five laps, utilizing patience and persistence to get through the roaming traffic jam, “Sunshine” persevered and made it out on the other side.

“This place can be tough in traffic, and you don’t know what’s going on behind you,” Courtney continued. “The bottom was starting to slow down so I knew the top was going to be coming in there at some point. It all came down to choosing the right line at the right time. A lapped car would miss his line and that allowed me to slip by. That happened with a few of them. Once I got clear, I was just worried about setting a solid pace and building a gap between myself and who was behind me.”

Ian Madsen, who shared the front row with Tyler Courtney, finished second at Wilmot, followed by Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason, Gio Scelzi, and Rico Abreu. Bill Balog, who was forced to surrender his initial starting position in row four due to a mechanical hiccup that he discovered during the four-wide salute, charged ahead from the tail to finish sixth.

With all stats considered, Courtney now owns nine podium finishes in his last ten races; all five All Star victories occurring since May 14.

With two down and two to go, All Stars versus IRA action will now move to the Plymouth Dirt Track at Sheboygan County Fairgrounds on Saturday, June 5, followed by a Sunday night visit to Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie on June 6. Each of the remaining Wisconsin blockbusters will feature $6,000-to-win main events.

Tyler Courtney survives a frenzy at Fairbury for fourth All Star win of 2021

FAIRBURY, Ill. (June 3, 2021) - For the fourth time of his career - for the fourth time this season - “Sunshine” Tyler Courtney is a FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, securing his fourth check in the victory column in a wire-to-wire display at the almost legendary Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois, on Thursday, June 3. Starting from the pole position by way of dash victory, Courtney’s campaign at the front of the field was far from a cake walk, as the former USAC champion was forced to slice and dice through wave after wave of slower traffic, all before fending off a wild, last-ditch effort slider from the “North Pole Nightmare” Bill Balog.

Adding some extra depth to the stat sheet, the All Star visit to Fairbury, which also featured the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series, was the first appearance by the All Star Circuit of Champions since 1995.

“This has been a great last few weeks for this NOS Energy Drink/Turbo car. The guys have been busting their butts back at the shop to keep this thing fast,” Tyler Courtney said in Fairbury victory lane, driver of the Clauson Marshall Racing/NOS Energy Drink/Turbo/No. 7BC sprint car. “I’m having a blast right now. This is a good time of year to get going. We still have three more nights this weekend and a big week next week.”

Although the first five laps were relatively uneventful, a caution on lap six would essentially clump the field back together, eventually leading to an incredible three-car battle in traffic between Courtney, Bill Balog, and West Coast heavy hitter, Rico Abreu.

By lap 13, slower cars were stacked up two and three wide in front of the leaders, and although Courtney was all but stuck, the Indianapolis, Indiana-native was successful in slowly maneuvering through the mess, simultaneously keeping Balog in his back seat with Abreu also in tow. Lap after lap, traffic maintained its relentlessness, not allowing Courtney to find any breathing room, stretching his legs to a near-straightaway command, until lap 25.

Just as Courtney thought his troubles were over, the caution flags would reappear on lap 28 setting up what would be a three-lap dash to the finish. As mentioned, the ensuing restart led to a wicked, turn four slide job attempt by Bill Balog, barely leaving Courtney enough room to get by. Suffice it to say, Courtney squeezed through and held on to secure the $5,000 payday.

Rico Abreu, who got by Balog after his failed slide job attempt, finished second at Fairbury, followed by Balog, Ian Madsen, and Gio Scelzi.

“I should have started a little lower on that last restart,” Courtney said when discussing the last restart and Bill Balog’s slider. “I was expecting it, but he left me just enough room so I had to go for it. We just needed to be a little better on that restart and not give the guy a chance. But we led the lap that counts.” . Venturing north into the Badger State, the All Stars versus IRA weekend will continue with three nights in southern Wisconsin, kicking-off officially on Friday, June 4, at the Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot. Action will move to the Plymouth Dirt Track at Sheboygan County Fairgrounds on Saturday, June 5, followed by a Sunday night visit to Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie on June 6. All three Wisconsin blockbusters will feature $6,000-to-win main events.

All Stars and IRA headline action in Illinois and Wisconsin on June 3-6

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 2, 2021) - Full steam ahead back to the Midwest, the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their 2021 campaign with a four-race stint through Illinois and Wisconsin, set to battle head-to-head with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series at four tracks over four days beginning Thursday, June 3, at the legendary Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois.

The second of two All Star visits to the Land of Lincoln in 2021, Thursday’s Fairbury All Star versus IRA showcase will award a $5,000 top prize, as well as feature the All Star Circuit of Champions for the first time since June 7, 1995. Dale Blaney, now an All Star official, is the most recent open wheeler to find All Star victory lane at the world-famous Fairbury.

Venturing north into the Badger State, the All Stars versus IRA weekend will continue with three nights in southern Wisconsin, kicking-off officially on Friday, June 4, at the Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot. Action will move to the Plymouth Dirt Track at Sheboygan County Fairgrounds on Saturday, June 5, followed by a Sunday night visit to Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie on June 6. All three Wisconsin blockbusters will feature $6,000-to-win main events.

Fresh off of his podium run during the $29,000-to-win Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway, “Sunshine” Tyler Courtney will enter the four-race All Star/IRA sweep as the current All Star championship leader, on top of the driver standings by 74 points over Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck. Peck, who scored two victories on the All Star trail thus far in 2021, owns a 20 point cushion over Ian Madsen, followed by Hunter Schuerenberg and Zeb Wise.

Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason, ten-time IRA Outlaw Sprint Series champion and the IRA’s all-time leading winner, Bill Balog, Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry, open wheel veteran and Nashville native, Paul McMahan, and Neptune City, New Jersey’s Kyle Reinhardt currently sit sixth through tenth in the All Star driver title chase.

The IRA Outlaw Sprint Series will be represented by a stout contingent of nearly 20 competitors over the course of the weekend, led by current Series point leader and Illinois-native, Jake Blackhurst.

Lance Dewease scores 2021 Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway for $29,000 payday

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (May 31, 2021) - It was a special day in Port Royal for Fayetteville, Pennsylvania’s Lance Dewease, as the National Sprint Car Hall of Famer not only secured the 2021 Bob Weikert Memorial title for a 42nd-career FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory, a 13th Series win at the Port Royal “Speed Palace,” but the pilot of the ever-familiar Kreitz Racing No. 69K accomplished his first All Star triumph of season on Davey Brown’s 87th birthday; one of Central Pennsylvania’s legendary mechanics and the head wrench for Kreitz Racing. Dewease scored a $29,000 payday for his efforts, as well as the coveted bull trophy.

Three-time Port Royal Speedway track champion, Logan Wagner, finished second on Monday evening, followed by leading All Star Circuit of Champions title contender, Tyler Courtney, a hard-charging Danny Dietrich, and Mike Wagner.

“He didn’t come to victory lane at my 100th victory at Williams Grove. He was there, but left, so I told him we had to win this so he could be in victory lane with me because that’s what it’s all about,” Lance Dewease said in Port Royal Speedway victory lane. “He is 87 years old. Just think about that. And he still works on this race car and he is the drive behind this race car, working to make it go as fast as it can. If I get to that age and have that level of desire and dedication, I’ll be happy.”

Although Dewease, who started from eighth on the grid via top-ten redraw, led the majority of the 30-lap program, his march to Bob Weikert Memorial victory lane was full of challenges, as well as a few lucky breaks. In fact, a caution on lap seven for a slowing Brent Marks initiated Dewease’s first challenge for the top spot. Marks, who started fourth, had just slid early race leader, Hunter Schuerenberg, for the lead, but hard contact with the turn one and two wall forced the “Myerstown Missile” to retire. The ensuing restart saw Dewease power to the front, utilizing the low line through turns three and four to take command before crossing back under the flagstand.

Meanwhile, Anthony Macri, a 2021 All Star winner at Bedford who started tenth on the Weikert lineup, was on the move, using a caution on lap 10 to power by two cars in a single circuit to claim second. Another caution on lap 12 allowed Macri to restart on the tailtank of the Hall of Famer.

Laps 15 through 20 resulted in an all-out war between Macri and Dewease. Attempting slider after slider, Macri eventually made a move stick, barely edging out Dewease in a drag race back to the start/finish line to complete lap 20. All momentum would halt the following lap, as a caution would set up an open red.

On the ensuing restart, Dewease charged back by Macri, utilizing the lowline through turns one and two to reclaim the point over the Dillsburg-native. Refusing to give up, Macri hounded Dewease yet again, returning to the cushion with hopes of powering around the Kreitz Racing entry. Unfortunately for Macri, massive contact with the turn three wall ended his efforts on lap 26; he would be forced to leave on the hook.

Without further challenges, Lance Dewease drove on to claim the five-figure payday.

“Anthony is really good here. He pounds the wall hard,” Lance Dewease continued. “He was going to have to really earn it to get back by me. I guess he hit the wall too many times. We were really good on restarts. I could get into the corner flat out. I knew Anthony wasn’t going to go down to block me. He probably thought he wasn’t going to have to worry about me.

“It’s great to be here racing in the sunshine. Port Royal does such a fantastic job. I’m just really happy to be here.”

The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their 2021 campaign with a four-pack in the Midwest, kicking-off the long weekend with a visit to Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois, on Thursday, June 3, followed by a Wisconsin tripleheader at Wilmot Raceway, Plymouth Dirt Track, and Angell Park Speedway on Friday through Sunday, June 4-6.

All Stars ready to invade Central Pennsylvania for Davey Brown Tribute and Weikert Memorial

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (May 27, 2021) - Fresh off of a mega, four-race weekend in the Hoosier State that featured the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 in four events over four days at three Indiana bullrings, capped with the $26,000-to-win Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race at Kokomo Speedway, “America’s Series” will continue its 2021 campaign with another mega weekend, this time in Pennsylvania Posse Country where the Series will compete in three major events for three big paydays.

The second of five weekend visits to Central Pennsylvania this season, the All Star Circuit of Champions will kick-off their upcoming three-race stretch, officially, with the $10,000-to-win Davey Brown Tribute at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg on Friday, May 28. Action will continue with the Bob Weikert Memorial doubleheader at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal on Saturday and Sunday, May 29-30. The Weikert Memorial, featuring the largest single-day winner’s share on the All Stars’ May calendar, will award $10,000 and $29,000, respectively.

Adding a twist to the weekend outlook, Saturday and Sunday’s Bob Weikert Memorial will put into practice a unique format that will feature qualifying and heat race points to help set the evenings’ feature lineups. Despite the event utilizing a non-traditional All Star format, full Series points will be awarded.

The All Star Circuit of Champions have a long, storied history in Pennsylvania Posse Country, most recently making their presence known during a three-race contest in mid-April when the full-time travelers visited Williams Grove Speedway, Port Royal Speedway, and Bedford Speedway in consecutive fashion. Although the All Stars have celebrated recent successes among the Posse regulars, the last Central Pennsylvania invasion resulted in two Posse victories and one for the “true outlaws.”

After Kyle Larson reigned supreme to score the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic victory at Williams Grove on April 16, the following two evenings were claimed by the Pennsylvania Posse. Logan Wagner earned the Keith Kauffman Classic win at Port Royal, followed by an Anthony Macri triumph during the Johnny Grum Classic at Bedford.

Earning two consecutive Circle City victories during the recent All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation, Indianapolis, Indiana’s Tyler Courtney will lead the All Stars into battle in Central Pennsylvania, on top of the championship standings over recent Pennsylvania winner and Monrovia, Indiana-native, Justin Peck. Ian Madsen is currently third in the All Star title chase, followed by Hunter Schuerenberg and recent Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race champion, Zeb Wise.

In addition to maintaining the championship lead, Courtney is also the leading Series winner in 2021 with three victories to date, two at Circle City and one at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan. Peck owns two wins on the season including the points opener at Attica Raceway Park, followed by a second at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio. Zeb Wise, Cap Henry, Kyle Reinhardt, Sam Hafertepe Jr., Anthony Macri, Tony Stewart, Kyle Larson, and Logan Wagner each own one win during points-earning competition.

Zeb Wise and Wise-Priddy Racing score Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race victory for $26,000 payday at Kokomo Speedway

KOKOMO, Ind. (May 23, 2021) - In a showdown of epic proportions, Zeb Wise and Wise-Priddy Racing topped them all on Sunday evening at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Indiana, eventually out-dueling a stacked field of 42 FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 competitors and securing the largest payday of Wise’s open wheel resume. Adding a little extra depth to the stat sheet, the Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race victory, which earned the recent high school graduate a $26,000 top prize, was the first All Star Circuit of Champions win of Wise’s short but distinguished career.

“I’ve had this event highlighted on our calendar since I saw it come out on the schedule,” Wise said, driver of the Sundollar Restoration General Contractors, Quikpits.com, No. 10 sprint car. “Our goal was to be in contention for a win, let alone be standing up here in front of all of you great fans. We knew it was going to be tough, but here we are. This is awesome.”

Although Wise would come out on top, the 40-lap Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race was an all-out war involving four different leaders and seven different lead changes. Tyler Courtney, who ultimately secured the All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation four-race championship for $10,000, was the first to lead at Kokomo, controlling the first nine circuits before the “Macho Man” Brady Bacon made his presence known after a restart with nine in the books.

After firing around the outside of Courtney, Bacon maintained the point until lap 18 when the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma-native pulled to a stop during a caution, eventually making his way pit-side. Bacon’s surrender allowed the “Madman” Kerry Madsen to inherit the top spot. Madsen actually ripped by Bacon one lap prior, but the aforementioned caution negated his move.

The lap 19 caution and ensuing restart not only proved to be beneficial for Madsen, but also Zeb Wise, as the Angola, Indiana-native powered ahead from fifth to second in just one circuit, using the cushion to drive right by Tyler Courtney and Rico Abreu. Just four circuits later, Wise was the new man in charge, using a big slider through turns one and two to get by Madsen on lap 23. Madsen returned the favor quickly, getting back by Wise on lap 24.

The war between Wise and Madsen continued through lap 34, swapping slide jobs and battling side-by-side for several circuits while trying to negotiate a slew of slower cars. A move by Madsen to split a pair of lappers on lap 32 looked to be the winning move, but an eventual mishap with traffic cut Madsen’s 40-lap contest short leaving the lead to Wise with only six laps left on the board.

From that point forward, it was all Zeb Wise at the front of the field. Tyler Courtney held strong to finish second, followed by Rico Abreu - a third consecutive podium finish for the St. Helena, California-native - a hard charging Cole Macedo from the B-Main, and Scotty Thiel.

“I just knew to hammer the heck out of it and don’t screw up,” Wise said of his final restart with Courtney and Abreu breathing down his neck. “I’ve raced with Tyler (Courtney) a lot here so I expected him to be racing around the bottom. I just wanted to hammer the top of one and two to get a gap on him, then get to the bottom of three and four. Kerry (Madsen) actually got by me on the bottom in three so I knew I wanted to change it up and get down there.”

Abreu capped his Indiana Invasion with a runner-up finish in the final weekend standings, followed by Hunter Schuerenberg, Justin Peck, and Zeb Wise; second through fifth were awarded $7,000, $4,000, $3,000, and $2,000, respectively.

Cap Henry scores first All Star victory of 2021 in epic Gas City return

GAS CITY, Ind. (May 22, 2021) - The result of an all-out slugfest, Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry finally etched his name on the 2021 FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 win list, doing so in epic fashion during All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation competition at Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, Indiana. Henry, who now owns five All Star victories over the course of his career, earned his eventual $6,000 payday from the front row, forced to outduel and outwit St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu. Adding some flair to the record books, Henry’s victory occurred during just the second-ever Gas City visit by the All Stars; Dale Blaney scored the first visit win in 2004.

“You know when you’re racing Rico, it’s never going to be easy,” Henry said in Gas City victory lane. “I felt bad kinda using up the lappers there near the end, but we were racing for the win. My guys have been working so hard this year. We had a bad start to the year, so I wasn’t about to throw that one away.”

Although starting from the outside-pole position, Henry, aboard the Lane Racing, Blake’s Hard Cider, No. 4 sprint car, did not earn the lead initially. Instead, Abreu, who started alongside Henry on the front row, got the early jump, maintaining control of the field for the first 15 circuits while surviving three early race restarts and the initial run-in with traffic.

Abreu’s confrontation with a two-to-three wide traffic jam allowed Henry to close in on the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing No. 24 sprint car, eventually working his way around Abreu with a slick move off of turn four on lap 16.

By lap 22, Abreu was back on Henry’s heels, capitalizing after the Buckeye nearly made contact with a backmarker. A slider through turns three and four would ultimately give the lap to Abreu, but Henry quickly returned the favor and resumed the point with a move of his own in the very next corner.

A late race caution on lap 26 would actually give Henry the breather that he needed. With traffic no longer a factor, Henry would go on to navigate the final five circuits with ease, claiming high honors by a final margin of victory equaling 1.210 seconds. Abreu held on to finish second, followed by Bill Balog, Kerry Madsen, and Justin Peck.

“The top was definitely the way to go tonight. You just had to try and rip it,” Henry added. “I was getting kinda lucky because the lappers that I got stuck behind were setting a pretty good pace so I was able to tuck in behind. I definitely needed that caution there at the end to get me back into some clean air.”

“I just think I needed to make some better decisions in traffic,” Rico Abreu said after finishing second for a second consecutive night. “It’s so hard to judge your depth perception on lapped cars. The cushion ended up getting really treacherous there at the end. That was a lot of fun racing with Cap. The better car won that race.”

Growing into one of the most sought after prizes on the All Star campaign trail, the All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation will conclude on Sunday, May 23, with the third running of the annual Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Indiana. Like years prior, a $26,000 payday will be awarded to the main event winner.

Conducted at three different tracks during its three year run, the Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race held its inaugural event in 2019 at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa. The 2020 edition was hosted at the Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wisconsin. Three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and All Star owner, Tony Stewart, won the first-ever Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race. Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson earned last season’s $26,000 share.

Tyler Courtney caps Circle City sweep with $10,000 finale win over Rico Abreu


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (May 21, 2021) - Padding a stretch of success that now includes three victories in his last four FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 starts, “Sunshine” Tyler Courtney represented his hometown fanbase well on Friday evening and steered his Clauson Marshall Racing, NOS Energy Drink, Turbo, No. 7BC sprint car to another All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation win at Circle City Raceway, officially sweeping the weekend and collecting a total winner’s share equaling $16,000; $6,000 during the Thursday opener and $10,000 during the Friday finale.

In addition, Courtney’s Friday night win allowed the Indianapolis, Indiana-native to take control of the All Star Circuit of Champions points lead, simultaneously extending his Indiana Invasion points standings lead to 12 markers over “Hunter Percent” Hunter Schuerenberg. The Indiana Invasion overall champion will earn a $10,000 bonus.

“This is surreal,” Tyler Courtney said in Circle City victory lane. “These guys make my job so easy. This team gives me the best opportunity to come out here and compete with the best, as well as be at the top of our game. It’s my job to capitalize and right now we are hitting on all eight cylinders. We still have two more races this weekend and a lot more money up for grabs.”

Courtney, who now owns five consecutive top-two finishes with Tony Stewart’s All Stars, was forced to fend off St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu during his route to Circle City victory lane. Starting alongside Abreu on the front row, the top two exchanged positions on two occasions during the 40-lap blockbuster, the first with Abreu sling-shotting around Courtney to take command on lap 14. Eleven laps later, Courtney was back in control, utilizing the bottom groove at the exit of turn four to sneak back by Abreu on lap 25.

Despite the first 22 laps being slowed for five cautions, laps 23 through 40 went non-stop, ultimately creating what would be an exciting duel in traffic between Courtney and Abreu. Although Courtney remained on top until the conclusion, Abreu did his best to get back by the former USAC National Sprint Car champion, pounding the cushion all the way around Circle City’s quarter-mile.

Lapped traffic with ten to go created one last opportunity to Abreu, but despite the attempts, Courtney persevered, eventually extending his lead to just shy of one second by feature’s end. Hunter Schuerenberg would climb eight spots to finish third, followed by Scotty Thiel, and recent high school graduate, Zeb Wise.

“Getting to win in your home city, in front of all of your friends and family, is really cool,” Courtney continued. “To come to a place that is brand new with a lot of unknowns and be this fast says a lot about our team right now. I’m having a blast out here.”

The four-night Indiana takeover will continue on Saturday, May 22, with a visit to Gas City I-69 Speedway. Only the second All Star appearance in Series history, the Saturday night showstopper will award a $6,000 payday. Dale Blaney, the all-time win leader with “America’s Series,” was the first and only All Star to win at Gas City, scoring a victory on September 17, 2004.

Growing into one of the most sought after prizes on the All Star campaign trail, the All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation will conclude on Sunday, May 23, with the third running of the annual Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race at Kokomo Speedway. Like years prior, a $26,000 payday will be awarded to the main event winner.

The 2020 edition was hosted at the Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wisconsin. Three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and All Star owner, Tony Stewart, won the first-ever Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race.

Tyler Courtney opens All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation with win at Circle City Raceway

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (May 20, 2021) - For the second time in three starts, Indianapolis, Indiana’s Tyler Courtney is a FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, earning his second during round one of the All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation at the all-new Circle City Raceway at Marion County Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, Indiana. Securing a $6,000 payday for his efforts, the driver of the Clauson Marshall Racing, NOS Energy Drink, Turbo, No. 7BC sprint car has not finished worse than second in four consecutive All Star starts, acquiring his first Series victory at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan, on Friday, May 14.

Nearly capitalizing on a restart with three to go, Marion, Illinois’ Carson Short finished second at Circle City, followed by Hunter Schuerenberg, Zeb Wise, and Bill Balog. Earning the pole position by way of dash victory, Schuerenberg led the opening circuit before Courtney drove by the Vermeer Motorsports entry at the exit of turn four the following lap.

In addition, the All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation opener was the first-ever event held at Circle City Raceway;the All Stars will return Friday for a $10,000-to-win finale.

“Man, this is awesome,” Tyler Courtney said in All Star victory lane. “We needed to get that first win out of the way to build some positive momentum on our side, and here we are. To say I’m the first-ever winner at Circle City is pretty cool. They did a phenomenal job with this place. It’s only going to go up from here. And I’m excited to have a track only thirty minutes from home.”

As mentioned, a caution with three laps remaining opened the door for Short. After working his way forward from seventh to second in just ten laps, Short was in hot pursuit of the Clauson Marshall Racing entry, keeping the familiar No. 7BC in sight even when the frontrunners found themselves battling with slower cars. Four cautions in the first 20 circuits kept traffic out of the equation during the early stages of the 35-lapper, but a round of slower cars soon entered the picture with less than ten laps remaining; the eventual caution on lap 33 ended the confrontation.

Letting it all hang out in the final three laps, Short utilized the very bottom groove to eventually pull even with “Sunshine.” Despite a last-ditch effort slider through turns three and four, Courtney held strong, squeezing back by Short to lead the final circuit and ultimately earn his second All Star win in less than a week; the final margin of victory was .142 seconds.

“I kinda got too conservative there on that last restart,” Courtney added. “We almost gave it away, but luckily for us Carson (Short) is a good, clean racer and he left me just enough room off of four to get back by. We led the lap that counts and that’s all that matters.”

With points being tallied during the entire Indiana road trip, the All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation champion will be awarded a $10,000 top prize, with second through fifth awarded $7,000, $4,000, $3,000, and $2,000, respectively.

The All Star Circuit of Champions will return to Circle City with a $10,000-to-win blockbuster on Friday, May 21. Competition will move to Gas City I-69 Speedway on Saturday, May 22, followed by the $26,000-to-win Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race at Kokomo Speedway on Sunday, May 23.

All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation activates Thursday at Circle City

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (May 18, 2021) - In just two days, the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will take center stage in the Hoosier State, set to battle for four straight nights at three Indiana bullrings, all of which kicking-off on Thursday and Friday, May 20-21, with a two-night stay at the all-new Circle City Raceway in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Dubbed the All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation, competitors will not only duel for a total winner’s share equaling $48,000 over the four-day extended weekend, but a points fund equaling $26,000 will also be distributed among the top-five in the final weekend standings. The All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation champion will be awarded a $10,000 top prize, with second through fifth awarded $7,000, $4,000, $3,000, and $2,000, respectively.

The Circle City visit will not only activate a high profile weekend for Tony Stewart’s All Stars, but the All Star doubleheader will also be the facility’s debut event and will award a total winner’s share equaling $16,000; $6,000 on Thursday and $10,000 on Friday.

The four-night Indiana takeover will continue on Saturday, May 22, with a visit to Gas City I-69 Speedway. Only the second All Star appearance in Series history, the Saturday night showstopper will award a $6,000 payday. Dale Blaney, the all-time win leader with “Amercia’s Series,” was the first and only All Star to win at Gas City, scoring a victory on September 17, 2004.

Growing into one of the most sought-after prizes on the All Star campaign trail, the All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation will conclude on Sunday, May 23, with the third running of the annual Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race. Like years prior, a $26,000 payday will be awarded to the main event winner.

Conducted at three different tracks during its three year run, the Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race held its inaugural event in 2019 at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa. The 2020 edition was hosted at the Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wisconsin. Three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and All Star owner, Tony Stewart, won the first-ever Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race; Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson earned last season’s $26,000 share.

Ian Madsen will enter the four-race swing as the current All Star Circuit of Champions point leader, holding down the top spot over recent first-time winner, Tyler Courtney. Courtney, at the helm of Clauson Marshall Racing’s No. 7BC, earned his first-ever All Star victory during Mace Thomas Classic competition at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan. Incidentally, another first-time Series winner, Neptune City, New Jersey’s Kyle Reinhardt, earned top honors just 24 hours later at Dirt Oval at Route 66.

Two-time winner in 2021 and former point leader, Justin Peck will enter Circle City third in the title chase, followed by Zeb Wise and Hunter Schuerenberg.

Kyle Reinhardt on top at Dirt Oval @ Route 66 for first-ever All Star victory

JOLIET, Ill. (May 15, 2021) - It was a weekend of firsts for the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1, as Neptune City, New Jersey’s Kyle Reinhardt is now the newest member of the All Star winner’s club, etching his name in the Series history books with a wire-to-wire victory at the Dirt Oval at Route 66 in Joliet, Illinois. Earning $8,000 for his first-ever All Star triumph, Reinhardt, aboard the RQM Enterprises, Capitol Renegade, No. 91 sprint car, was actually the second All Star Rookie of the Year contender to score their first Series win this weekend. Clauson Marshall Racing’s Tyler Courtney nailed down an $8,500 victory at I-96 Speedway just one night prior.

“This is pretty unreal,” Reinhardt said, an engineer by trade who traded in the workplace for a steering wheel. “I just can’t thank all of the people who stuck behind me enough. I wouldn’t have been able to stop working to race without their help and support. This is just unreal.”

Although Reinhardt was able to control all 25 circuits, it was not a walk in the park, as Courtney and Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason each did their best to overtake the Garden State native, giving little slack especially during single-file restarts.

Lapped traffic also played a major role over the course of the 25-lapper. Between laps 13 and 21, slower cars attempted to create a near-impenetrable road block for Reinhardt around the track’s bottom groove, ultimately allowing Courtney to keep pace with his fellow Series rookie. A late-race caution with four laps remaining actually sealed the deal for Reinhardt, creating a clear track and clean air for his final four circuits.

“I had a good pace going and I was able to get by a couple slower cars, but I ended up getting held up a lot by one. Even then, I wasn’t sure what was going on behind me,” Reinhardt continued. “When that last caution came out and they said over the raceceiver that there were 21 laps down, I actually took a big breath and relaxed a little bit because I thought we were going to be ‘OK.’”

Courtney held on to finish second, followed by Eliason, Cap Henry, and the “Northpole Nightmare” Bill Balog.

Up next, the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will take center stage in the Hoosier State, set to battle for four straight nights at three Indiana bullrings, all of which kicking-off on Thursday and Friday, May 20-21, with a two-night stay at the all-new Circle City Raceway in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Dubbed the All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation, competitors will not only duel for a total winner’s share equaling $48,000 over the four-day extended weekend, but a points fund equaling $26,000 will also be distributed among the top-five in the final weekend standings. The All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation champion will be awarded a $10,000 top prize, with second through fifth awarded $7,000, $4,000, $3,000, and $2,000, respectively.

Tyler Courtney scores first-ever All Star victory in Mace Thomas Classic at I-96 Speedway

LAKE ODESSA, Mich. (May 14, 2021) - For the first time in his career, Indianapolis, Indiana’s Tyler Courtney is a FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so in big money fashion during I-96 Speedway’s Mace Thomas Classic on Friday, May 14. “Sunshine,” who started sixth on the main event grid before officially climbing his way into the All Star history books, earned $8,500 for his efforts, eventually holding off a pair of All Star championship contenders in Ian Madsen and Justin Peck.

Not taking command until just before the midpoint of the 30-lap contest, Courtney, aboard the Clauson Marshall Racing, NOS Energy Drink, No. 7BC sprint car, put himself within striking distance early, ultimately utilizing a stacked field after a caution on lap five to sneak by CJB Motorsports’ Paul McMahan for third. At the time, Sam McGhee Motorsports’ Ian Madsen held down the top spot, followed by Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason.

Unfortunately for Eliason, caution flags waved on his behalf on lap 13, forced to go pit-side with a disintegrated right rear tire. Eliason’s misfortune allowed Courtney to inherit the second position.

The ensuing restart gave Courtney an opportunity to make a bid for the lead, using the very top groove at the exit of turn four to squeeze by Ian Madsen on lap 14. From that point forward, it was all Tyler Courtney at the front of the field, surviving three more cautions and a short run in with traffic before crossing under the final checkers by a margin of victory equaling 2.48 seconds.

“This makes it all worth it,” an elated Tyler Courtney said in I-96 Speedway victory lane. “We have a lot of great partners and a lot of support behind us and they all make this possible. I owe it all to the guys at the shop. We’ve had a lot of bad luck, but we kept pushing through. We’ve been so close but we finally got it.

“We’re going to enjoy this win as long as we can,” Courtney continued. “I’m sure during our trip to Joliet it will all finally set in. It’s so hard to win races, especially in a form of racing so new to me, but we’ve got one heck of a team. If you want to contend for a championship, these are the guys you have to beat. To do it once is good, but we want more.”

Ian Madsen held on to finish second to also maintain the current All Star championship point lead, followed by Justin Peck, Paul McMahan, and Rico Abreu.

“I can’t thank Sam and the entire Sam McGhee Motorsports team enough for the opportunity,” Ian Madsen said, who owns a 12-point margin in the title chase over Justin Peck. “The team is doing an incredible job. We’ve been really close every night so hopefully we can snag one of these sooner or later.”

The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their weekend sweep with a visit to the Dirt Oval at Route 66 in Joliet, Illinois, on Saturday, May 15. The IRA Outlaw Sprint Series will be joining the All Star Circuit of Champions for the one-night takeover, accompanied by a loaded roster including the likes of Scotty Thiel, Jake Blackhurst, Scott Neitzel, Jeremy Schultz, and Russ Borland. Dubbed the Open Wheel Slam, Saturday’s All Stars vs IRA showcase will award an $8,000 top prize; the first All Star visit to the Chicagoland venue since June 29, 2019.

All Stars set to invade I-96 and Route 66 for $16,500 potential

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (May 12, 2021) - For the first time in 2021, the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will take their talents to Michigan and Illinois, set to invade a pair of ovals over two days while battling for a total winner’s share equaling $16,500. In addition, the Bumper-to-Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series will join the traveling All Stars during their visit to the Land of Lincoln on Saturday; the first of five head-to-head battles between the All Star Circuit of Champions and the Wisconsin-based IRA this season.

The Mace Thomas Classic will be the first event on the weekend agenda, highlighting competition at the I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan, on Friday, May 14. The event, the first All Star visit to I-96 Speedway - the first All Star visit to Michigan, period - since August 16, 2019, will award a $8,500 top prize. Three-year All Star competitor, Cory Eliason, was the last to earn a Series victory in the Wolverine State, scoring the win over Dale Blaney and Justin Peck.

The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their weekend sweep with a visit to the Dirt Oval at Route 66 in Joliet, Illinois, on Saturday, May 15. As mentioned, the IRA Outlaw Sprint Series will be joining the All Star Circuit of Champions for the one-night takeover, accompanied by a loaded roster including the likes of Scotty Thiel, Jake Blackhurst, Scott Neitzel, Jeremy Schultz, and Russ Borland. Dubbed the Open Wheel Slam, Saturday’s All Stars vs IRA showcase will award an $8,000 top prize; the first All Star visit to the Chicagoland venue since June 29, 2019.

Three-time Series champion, Aaron Reutzel, was the last to park in All Star victory lane at Route 66, charging ahead from ninth while holding back a pair of open wheel veterans in Dale Blaney and Paul McMahan.

Sam McGhee Motorsports, with Ian Madsen at the helm, will enter the weekend as the current All Star Circuit of Champions point leader, holding a ten-point margin over two-time Series winner, Justin Peck.

Although Madsen has yet to score a victory thus far in 2021, his consistency has been the key, earning six top-ten finishes in his first seven point-earning starts. Madsen acquired the point lead at the conclusion of last Sunday’s visit to Tri-City Raceway Park in Franklin, Pennsylvania. Peck, who held the championship lead to that point, suffered from a “DNF” allowing Madsen to capitalize.

“Sunshine” Tyler Courtney is currently third in the All Star championship standings, followed by second-year All Star Zeb Wise and Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason.

Hunter Schuerenberg is sixth in the title chase, followed by ten-time IRA Outlaw Sprint Series champion, Bill Balog, Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry, All Star veteran and CJB Motorsports pilot, Paul McMahan, and Rookie of the Year Contender, Kyle Reinhardt.

Sam Hafertepe Jr. leads them all for Tri-City Raceway Park win with FloRacing All Stars

FRANKLIN, Pa. (May 2, 2021) - Not only did Sam Hafertepe Jr. snap a FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 winless streak that dates back to 2008, the Sunnyvale, Texas-native earned some redemption in the process, ultimately exchanging his midpack B-Main performance from Sharon Speedway on Saturday for a $6,000 victory at Tri-City Raceway Park on Sunday.

Utilizing the pole position via dash victory, Sam Jr. led all 25 circuits at the Franklin, Pennsylvania, venue, forced to outrun a trio of All Star championship contenders such as Justin Peck, Tyler Courtney, and Ian Madsen. Bumping his career All Star win total to two, Hafertepe’s last visit to victory lane with “America’s Series” occurred at North Florida Speedway in 2008. Incidentally, that was his first-ever win in a 410c.i. powerplant.

“Being out front was the place to be tonight,” Hafertepe Jr. said in Tri-City Raceway Park victory lane, driver of the Hill's Racing Team, Townline Variety, Heidbreder Foundation Service, Kiebler & Sons Lawn, No. 15H. “It was obvious where we had to run to get around some of the tricky spots. After last night, we were really beating our heads off the wall, but to end things like this is pretty awesome for my guys.”

Mastering what proved to be a tricky and choppy racing surface, Hafertepe was rarely pressured during his 25-lap campaign, forced to deal with slower traffic on two occasions before cautions allowed for clean air and a clear track. Even when traffic was a factor, Sam maneuvered effortlessly, using the bottom and top grooves to keep from disintegrating any momentum.

Buch Motorsports’ Justin Peck, who entered the evening as the All Star championship points leader, was probably Hafertepe’s biggest threat during the evening’s main event. The Sharon Speedway winner from one night prior climbed from eighth to fourth in just two circuits, all before battling ahead two more positions by lap 17. Unfortunately for Peck, a rut between turns one and two would get the best of the Monrovia, Indiana-native on lap 18 causing the ever-familiar No. 13 to lose control and tumble; Peck was uninjured.

After the red flag incident for Peck, Clauson Marshall Racing’s Tyler Courtney, who maintained the second position the entire distance before losing the spot to Peck on lap 17, would regain his two hole spot, followed by Sam McGhee Motorsports’ Ian Madsen. From that point forward, the top three remained the same. Hafertepe would go on to win by .528 seconds over Courtney, Madsen, Bill Balog, and Cap Henry.

“We’ve been getting our butts beat with the Outlaws pretty good which forced us to make some big strides to get better,” Hafertepe continued. “We decided to come up here and try our hand with these guys. We actually expected to come up here and get two slick tracks in a row, but the surface tonight threw us a curveball. Moisture is where we’ve been really good and tonight we were able to capitalize on that.”

With his podium finish, and Peck's misfortune, Ian Madsen is now the All Star championship points leader by ten markers over Justin Peck.

The All Star Circuit of Champions will return to competition with a two-day sweep through Michigan and Illinois, first visiting I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan, on Friday, May 14, followed by a stop at the Dirt Oval at Route 66 in Joliet, Illinois, on Saturday, May 15. Each event will award a minimum of $8,000 with Friday’s Mace Thomas Classic at I-96 paying an $8,500 top prize.

Justin Peck goes wire-to-wire at Sharon Speedway for Buckeye Cup triumph

HARTFORD, Ohio (May 1, 2021) - Justin Peck has certainly found his stride in the Buckeye State, as the Monrovia, Indiana-native scored his second FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory of the 2021 season, doing so during Sharon Speedway’s annual Buckeye Cup on Saturday, May 1. Peck, driver of the Buch Motorsports No. 13 entry, led every circuit of the 30-lap contest to solidify his $6,000 payday, ultimately withstanding pressure from Cole Duncan and Dave Blaney before stretching his legs to a near-straightaway advantage. Impressive enough, Peck is now two for two in the Buckeye State this season during All Star championship points competition, knocking down his first during Attica’s Spring Nationals on Saturday, April 3.

Peck’s Buckeye Cup triumph also bumped his overall All Star win total to three, earning his first during a start at Macon Speedway in Macon, Illinois, on June 10, 2017. In addition, Peck remains in control of the All Star championship standings, holding down an 18-point lead over Ian Madsen.

“We just keep working. That’s the name of the game. We keep working and we keep getting better,” an elated Justin Peck said in Sharon Speedway victory lane, driver of the Coastal Race Parts, The Tree Center, No. 13 sprint car. “I tried to lose that race there pretty early on by running the top and smacking the wall. I actually knocked the ladder out of the car before we even got ten laps in. I just had to smarten up a little bit after that. I knew we had a fast race car. I just needed to finish the race.”

Working the very edge of Sharon Speedway’s smooth, but slick racing surface, Peck set the early tone, using his front row starting position to jump to an early advantage over Hunter Schuerenberg, Cole Duncan, Dave Blaney, and Ian Madsen.

Soon forced to rely on all available grooves and not just the top, Peck’s first and only hold up appeared in the form of traffic, stacking up quickly and eventually interfering with the leader for the first time on lap 11.

Although Peck did his best to navigate slower cars, a hornets nest was brewing behind him in the form of a fast closing Cole Duncan and smooth sailing Dave Blaney, each reeling in the Hoosier with every lap. With Duncan working the middle and Blaney working the bottom, the duo finally caught the tail tank of Peck by lap 16, now with no lappers between them and all separated by less than a second.

Despite a few brake checks in traffic, and continuous pressure from Duncan and Blaney, Peck prevailed, creating distance among the back markers and stretching his legs to almost a second. By lap 22, Peck had pushed his gap to three lappers between himself and Duncan.

With Peck now nowhere to be found, Duncan would have to settle for second, followed by Ian Madsen, Zeb Wise, and Bill Balog. Dave Blaney, who was battling in the third position at the time the final checkers flew, was eventually disqualified for missing the scales at the conclusion of the main event; he was scored 25th.

“We were able to put a whole night together,” Peck continued. “We qualified good enough tonight where we just had to transfer through our heat race to make the dash. And that’s the name of the game. You need to put yourself in a position early and start up front in these things. We fine tune things as the night goes on. I can’t thank everyone enough. It’s been a dream to drive for these guys.”

Hopping back across the Pennsylvania state line, Tri City Raceway Park in Franklin, Pennsylvania, will conclude the weekend’s agenda with a Sunday night showstopper on May 2. Ending a near-four year hiatus at the Venango County venue, the All Stars last visited Tri City on July 23, 2017, with the “Steel City Outlaw” Tim Shaffer scoring the victory; Sunday’s return will award a $6,000 payday.

Afternoon rain and cold temperatures force Lernerville cancellation


SARVER, Pa. (April 30, 2021) - Soaking an already saturated Lernerville Speedway, a round of early afternoon rain showers, mixed with unseasonably cold temperatures, forced FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 and Lernerville officials to cancel Friday’s Lernerville Grand. Officials are working together to find a suitable make-up date. Any and all information will be announced when it becomes available.

Just across the Ohio line, Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, will host its first of four All Star programs this season with the annual Buckeye Cup on Saturday, May 1. Awarding a $6,000 payday, Saturday’s Buckeye Cup will continue Sharon’s long and storied history with the traveling All Stars that dates back to 1970. The All Star Circuit of Champions will return to Sharon for an Ohio Sprint Speedweek appearance on Tuesday, June 15.

Hopping back across the Pennsylvania state line, Tri City Raceway Park in Franklin, Pennsylvania, will conclude the upcoming weekend’s agenda with a Sunday night showstopper on May 2. Ending a near-four year hiatus at the Venango County venue, the All Stars last visited Tri City on July 23, 2017, with the “Steel City Outlaw” Tim Shaffer scoring the victory; Sunday’s return will award a $6,000 payday.

(April 28, 2021) - The FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue its 2021 campaign with a three-pack along the Pennsylvania/Ohio state line, all of which kicking-off with a milestone event at the famed Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania, on Friday, April 30.

Dubbed the Lernerville Grand presented by Alternative Power Sources, the All Star Circuit of Champions will headline Lernerville Speedway’s 1000th sprint car feature on Friday evening. As an extra incentive, the 1000th main event will award a $1,000 bonus, ultimately increasing the total winner’s share from $6,000 to $7,000. In addition, Friday’s Lernerville Grand will be the 41st appearance by Tony Stewart’s All Stars since first landing in Sarver on July 9, 1970.

Just across the Ohio line, Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, will host its first of four All Star programs this season with the annual Buckeye Cup on Saturday, May 1. Awarding a $6,000 payday, Saturday’s Buckeye Cup will continue Sharon’s long and storied history with the traveling All Stars that also dates back to 1970, hosting its first Series appearance just 13 days after Lernerrville’s first. The All Star Circuit of Champions will return to Sharon for an Ohio Sprint Speedweek appearance on Tuesday, June 15.

Hopping back across the Pennsylvania state line, Tri City Raceway Park in Franklin, Pennsylvania, will conclude the upcoming weekend’s agenda with a Sunday night showstopper on May 2. Ending a near-four year hiatus at the Venango County venue, the All Stars last visited Tri City on July 23, 2017, with the “Steel City Outlaw” Tim Shaffer scoring the victory; Sunday’s return will award a $6,000 payday.

Incidentally, like Lernerville and Sharon, Tri City also hosted an All Star event during the Series’ 1970 inaugural season; Bobbie Adamson was the victor.

Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck will enter the upcoming three-race weekend as the current championship points leader, padded by a victory during Attica Raceway Park’s Spring Nationals on Saturday, April 3. The pilot of the Buch Motorsports No. 13 entry has amassed three top-ten finishes in his first five point-earning starts, maintaining a 12-point margin over Sam McGhee Motorsports’ Ian Madsen.

Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason will enter the Lernerville/Sharon/Tri City stretch third in the championship standings, followed by Clauson Marshall Racing’s Tyler Courtney and the “Myerstown Missile” Brent Marks.

Four-race All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation to feature $26,000 points fund

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (April 26, 2021) - In less than one month, the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will take center stage in the Hoosier State, set to battle for four straight nights at three Indiana bullrings, all of which kicking-off on Thursday and Friday, May 20-21, with a two-night stay at the all-new Circle City Raceway in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Dubbed the All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation, competitors will not only duel for a total winner’s share equaling $48,000 over the four-day extended weekend, but a points fund equaling $26,000 will also be distributed among the top-five in the final weekend standings. The All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation champion will be awarded a $10,000 top prize, with second through fifth awarded $7,000, $4,000, $3,000, and $2,000, respectively.

“I can’t wait for the Indiana Invasion,” said Kevin Rudeen of Rudeen Racing and Rayce Rudeen Foundation. “Four nights of top tier racing on amazing tracks. I am honored the Rayce Rudeen Foundation gets to be part of such an enormous event. I hope the work of RRF brings a halt to the stigmatism of addiction. With help from the All Star Circuit of Champions, as well as the three tracks and our foundation, I hope we can get information out to help those who are or who have loved ones battling addiction. I don’t want anyone to go through the loss that my family and I have been through. I cannot thank Tony Stewart with All Stars, as well as FloRacing for their support of this event.”

The Circle City visit will not only activate a high profile weekend for Tony Stewart’s All Stars, but the All Star doubleheader will also be the facility’s debut event and will award a total winner’s share equaling $16,000; $6,000 on Thursday and $10,000 on Friday.

The four-night Indiana takeover will continue Saturday, May 22, with a visit to Gas City I-69 Speedway. Only the second All Star appearance in Series history, the Saturday night showstopper will award a $6,000 payday. Dale Blaney, the all-time win leader with “America’s Series,” was the first and only All Star to win at Gas City, scoring a victory on September 17, 2004.

Growing into one of the most sought after prizes on the All Star campaign trail, the All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation will conclude on Sunday, May 23, with the third running of the annual Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race. Like years prior, a $26,000 payday will be awarded to the main event winner.

Conducted at three different tracks during its three year run, the Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race held its inaugural event in 2019 at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa. The 2020 edition was hosted at the Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wisconsin. Three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and All Star owner, Tony Stewart, won the first-ever Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race. Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson earned last season’s $26,000 share.

Anthony Macri races by Rico Abreu to claim Johnny Grum Classic at Bedford Speedway

BEDFORD, Pa. (April 19, 2021) - Just one night following his incredible 19 position rally from 21st to finish second in Port Royal Speedway’s annual Keith Kauffman Classic, Dillsburg, Pennsylvania’s Anthony Macri did one better, literally, and secured his first FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory of the 2021 season, doing so during Bedford Speedway’s Johnny Grum Classic on Sunday, April 18. The victory, earning Macri a $6,000 payday, was accomplished from the outside of row two, utilizing a restart with eight laps remaining to work by race-long leader and California invader, Rico Abreu.

“These guys gave me one hell of a car all weekend long and it finally paid off,” Anthony Macri explained in Bedford victory lane, driver of the Macri Concrete/J&S Fabrication/C&D Rigging, No. 39M sprint car. “I don’t know what to say, I’m out of breath. I just tried to pace myself there at the end and not do anything stupid.”

Abreu, who started on the pole by way of dash victory, led the first 22 circuits of the 30-lap contest. Setting sail around the very topside of the speedway, Abreu seemed uncatchable, but as traffic started to intensify, Abreu’s momentum began to suffer allowing Macri, who found his way to second for the first time on lap 11, to shrink Abreu’s command. Just as a battle for the lead was about to break out, caution flags appeared on lap 13 ultimately eliminating traffic and clearing the path for Abreu.

A similar situation would occur on lap 22, as heavy traffic entered the picture once again for Abreu forcing the driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Rowdy Energy No. 24 to check up on his speed. Caution flags returned to the speedway on lap 23, and although it rid the speedway of any slower traffic, Macri was more than ready for another opportunity at a single-file restart behind Abreu’s No. 24.

The second try proved to be the charm for the “Concrete Kid,” as the now two-time All Star Circuit of Champions winner dived to the bottom of turn one to drive across in front of Abreu. The move stuck, immediately extending his command to a multi-second advantage.

“I noticed on that first restart that (Abreu) kinda jerks the wheel when he gets ready to take off,” Macri continued. “When he started to turn his wheel again, I got on the gas and got a great run down the frontstretch. I knew that was my chance and I’m glad we were able to capitalize.”

Once claiming the top spot, Macri was untouchable, racing on to secure his place on Bedford Speedway’s victory lane stage. Rico Abreu held on to claim second, followed by Paul McMahan, Cory Eliason, and Kyle Reinhardt.

Logan Wagner outduels Courtney and Macri for $10,000 Keith Kauffman Classic payday

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (April 17, 2021) - It was a dogfight to the end, but three-time Port Royal Speedway track champion, Logan Wagner, stood his ground and prevailed on Saturday evening at the “Speed Palace,” eventually capping the annual Keith Kauffman Classic featuring the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 as the main attraction on the Port Royal victory lane platform. Forced to outduel Clauson Marshall Racing’s Tyler Courtney, as well as a hard-charging Anthony Macri, Wagner’s Keith Kauffman Classic victory allowed the Harrisonville-native to bump his All Star win total to two, earning a cool $10,000 in the process. Wagner’s last visit to All Star victory lane occurred at Lernerville Speedway in 2017.

“This is a weight lifted off of my shoulders for the whole year,” Logan Wagner said in victory lane. “I mean, we won against the All Stars. I just can’t thank everyone enough who helps get this car to the track. We’ve been really fast lately, just haven’t been able to get that first win until now. What a way to do it.”

Lining up fourth on the main event grid, Wagner’s march to the front initiated quickly. A move around Jeff Halligan on lap five maneuvered Wagner to third, picking off Outlaw invader, Jacob Allen, for second just two circuits later. In the meantime, 2021 All Star Rookie of the Year contender, Tyler Courtney, was the man in charge, utilizing his pole position to score the early advantage.

Although Courtney was able to stretch his legs and create some space between himself and the rest of the field, a run-in with traffic on lap ten would create the negative momentum shift that Wagner benefited from. By lap 14, Wagner was all over the back bumper of Courtney, applying pressure lap after lap and nearly getting by the Indianapolis-native with four consecutive slide job attempts at the exit of turn four. Despite Wagner’s persistence, Courtney held strong, keeping the Zemco Speed Equipment/Zemco Tool and Die/Zemco Headers/No. 1 at bay.

His ability to hold off Wagner was impressive, banging the boards all the way around Port Royal Speedway, but lap 22 would prove to be the end of Courtney’s reign. In an attempt to split a pair of lappers, Courtney’s momentum faded, ultimately slipping up the surface which opened the door for Wagner to sneak through. Wagner would go on to lead the circuit, now with Courtney, Jacob Allen, and Anthony Macri in tow.

Macri started 21st, forced to do so after a heat race incident left him to participate in the evening's B-Main.

A two position jump over Allen and Courtney propelled Macri to second on lap 28, next setting aim on Wagner. Just what the “Concrete Kid” needed, caution flags appeared on the final circuit setting up what would be back-to-back green-white-checkered restarts. The first restart attempt was called back due to another caution, but the second restart went off as planned. Macri did his best to overtake Wagner, even attempting a slider between turns one and two, but a drag race down the backstretch, and a quick chop into three, would go in Wagner’s favor.

“I had to chop him a little bit, but that’s just the way it goes,” Wagner added. “We were banging wheels a little bit racing down the backstretch. It was a pretty exciting last two laps.”

Anthony Macri held on to finish second, followed by Ian Madsen, Jacob Allen, and Lance Dewease.

Moving ahead, the All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their four-race stretch with the $6,000-to-win Johnny Grum Classic at Bedford Speedway on Sunday, April 18.

Kyle Larson beats All Stars and Pennsylvania Posse for second consecutive Tommy Hinnershitz Classic crown

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (April 16, 2021) - Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson is officially perfect in a winged sprint car thus far in 2021, as the NASCAR Cup Series hotshoe for Hendrick Motorsports made his first sprint car start of the season on Friday evening at Williams Grove Speedway and ultimately concluded his attempt in fantastic fashion, scoring a second consecutive Tommy Hinnershitz Classic crown against a stout field of full-time FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 travelers, and the infamous Pennsylvania Posse. The $6,000 Hinnershitz victory bumped Larson’s career win total with “America’s Series” to 24, his first since Lincoln’s Dirt Classic triumph in September.

Larson started second on Friday evening at the world-famous paperclip, joining Central Pennsylvania legend, Lance Dewease, on the front row after winning the second of two All Star Circuit of Champions dashes. Taking a backseat to Dewease after the initial start, it would only take nine and a half laps for Larson to find a way around the National Sprint Car Hall of Famer, eventually using the topside of turns one and two to slingshot by the pilot of the familiar No. 69K. From that point forward, the 30-lap contest was the “Larson Show,” driving on to separate himself from Dewease to secure an inevitable celebratory wing dance.

“I really used to hate this place,” Kyle Larson said in a joking manner in Williams Grove Speedway victory lane. “When I first started coming here, I struggled. I had a hard time getting around it. But Paul (Silva) has a really good program worked out here and I think we have some things figured out for the better. I can’t say enough about everyone who helps out on this team. We have some Pennsylvania connections, so it feels good to get a win right in their backyard.”

There were only two cautions during the 30-lap Hinnershitz Classic main event, the first on lap four and a second on lap 11, which immediately followed Larson’s jump to the front. The caution on lap 11 gave Larson the breather that he needed, as the pilot the Folkens Brothers Trucking, MAVTV, JVI Group, Durst Industries, No. 57 sprint car was about to hit a wall of slower cars. The momentum break allowed for a fresh start and clean air, and although Larson would eventually reach traffic again on lap 17, the recent Cup Series winner never faltered.

“I was able to move around in traffic really well,” Larson added. “I could adjust my entry to move around traffic and not really lose any momentum. You don’t have the luxury of knowing what’s going on behind you, so you just have to focus on what’s ahead and go where the cars aren’t.”

Lance Dewease held on to finish second on Friday evening, followed by Freddie Rahmer, Ian Madsen, and Anthony Macri.

All Star Circuit of Champions action will continue on Saturday, April 17, with the $10,000-to-win Keith Kauffman Classic at Port Royal Speedway. The Series will then conclude their four-race stretch with the Johnny Grum Classic at Bedford Speedway on Sunday, April 18.

Tony Stewart secures $12,000 in final corner at Virginia Motor Speedway

JAMAICA, Va. (April 15, 2021) - Just as Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck was about to secure a second consecutive FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory, a mere 100 yards from Virginia Motor Speedway’s flagstand, disaster struck in the form of a flat right rear tire forcing the Attica Spring Nationals champion to surrender the point to three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, and now six-time All Star main event winner, Tony Stewart. The victory, Stewart’s first with “America’s Series” in 2021 and his first at the Virginia speedplant, earned the Columbus, Indiana-native a $12,000 payday; his first Series triumph since his $26,000 Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race score at 34 Raceway in 2019.

Stewart, who started eighth on the feature grid by way of heat race victory, and an eventual eighth-place dash finish, not only took advantage of Peck’s misfortune by being in the right place at the right time, but the pilot of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing No. 14 sprint car also survived a 30-lap battle with tire wear, as an abrasive racing surface made navigating Virginia Motor Speedway’s high-paced oval plenty risky. Adding to the drama, the final lap of the race was conducted in green-checkered fashion, as a caution on the final circuit forced the field to restack for a final lunge toward the finish.

Kerry Madsen, who started 12th, followed Stewart by Peck to secure the runner-up spot just before the flagstand. Peck ultimately limped across the line to finish third, blown tire still intact, followed by Chase Dietz and Paul McMahan, who each advanced 12 positions over the 30-lap contest.

“We weren’t the fastest car by any means. We kinda figured out early that it was going to be a tricky surface and ultimately a challenge for tires. I just tried to run my car straighter than those guys ahead of me,” Tony Stewart said, who now owns All Star victories at six different facilities. “We could see that (Justin Peck’s) tire was getting pretty worn. I could see the cords so I told myself if he can run the car that hard and make it work, good for him. Being second while trying to save tires was going to be a good night for us.”

Although Stewart and Peck were the focal point for the final lap dash, Cory Eliason was the man in charge for much of the main event and led the first 25 circuits before a cut right rear tire forced the Rudeen Racing entry to go to the work area. As aforementioned, the top spot was inherited by Peck, who had battled his way to second from sixth around the likes of Antony Macri and Ian Madsen, just to name a few. Before Eliason’s misfortune, and on several occasions, Peck pressured Eliason’s back bumper, making a few attempts to dive below Eliason’s No. 26 in turns three and four.

“I got to second and that is when I knew I was as good as Cory (Eliason). I thought maybe I could get a run on him, but then he had that tire go down so we really didn’t get the opportunity to really race for the lead” Justin Peck explained, who remains in control of the current All Star Circuit of Champions title chase. “My team really had me hooked up tonight. That allowed me to do what I needed to do.”

The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their Mid-Atlantic takeover with three consecutive stops in Pennsylvania, kicking things off with the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic at the world-famous Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg on Friday, April 16. Action will continue on Saturday, April 17, with the $10,000-to-win Keith Kauffman Classic at Port Royal Speedway, followed by the Johnny Grum Classic at Bedford Speedway on Sunday, April 18.

All Star Circuit of Champions set for Virginia and Pennsylvania takeover on April 15-18

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (April 13, 2021) - With one round of points competition already in the books, the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will now move forward and continue their 2021 campaign with a four-race swing through the Mid-Atlantic, first invading the east coast of Virginia for a one night stand, all before taking over the Keystone State for three straight days. The four-day/four-race road trip will also give Tony Stewart’s All Stars, boasting a loaded roster of 12 full-time competitors, their first interaction with the infamous Pennsylvania Posse, who are expected to be represented in full force during all four nights of action.

Kicking things off in a big way, the four-day takeover of the Mid-Atlantic will begin with a visit to the state-of-the-art Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, Virginia, on Thursday, April 15. Although it's the first stop on the weekend, the “Thursday Night Thunder” program will feature the largest payday, as the All Stars will face-off for a $12,000 top prize. Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason is the most recent All Star to visit Virginia Motor Speedway victory lane, scoring a $10,000 winner’s share on April 12, 2019.

Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, will be the next venue to host the All Star Circuit of Champions on Friday, April 16. The Tommy Hinnershitz Classic will be on the evening agenda awarding a $6,000 top prize. Kyle Larson, who has since made his return to NASCAR Cup Series action, is the defending Hinnershitz winner and earned a $5,000 payday over local standout Anthony Macri.

The Keith Kauffman Classic, honoring Port Royal Speedway’s all-time sprint win leader, Keith Kauffman, will headline the All Star Circuit of Champions schedule on Saturday, April 17. The first of six total visits to the “Speed Palace” by the All Stars in 2021, the Keith Kauffman Classic, claimed by Anthony Macri a season ago, will award a $10,000 payday.

The All Stars will return to Port Royal, Pennsylvania, for the Weikert Memorial on May 29-30, followed by the highly-anticipated 54th running of the Tuscarora 50, awarding $54,000 this season, in mid-September.

The All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their four-race trek through the heart of the Mid-Atlantic with a visit to the historic Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pennsylvania, on Sunday, April 18. The first and only Bedford visit by “America’s Series” in 2021, the All Stars will take center stage for the annual Johnny Grum Classic, also awarding a $6,000 payday. Three-time Series champion, Aaron Reutzel, is the most recent All Star to score a win at Bedford’s half-mile, snagging $5,000 in the process while holding off Danny Dietrich and Paul McMahan.

Fresh off of his Spring Nationals victory at Attica Raceway Park, Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck will enter the weekend as the current All Star Circuit of Champions driver points leader, on top by four markers over second-year All Star, Zeb Wise. On fire thus far in 2021, Peck is not only the most recent All Star winner and current championship leader, but the pilot of the Buch Motorsports No. 13 is also a two-time winner in Central Pennsylvania this season, as well as a recent podium finisher with the World of Outlaws at Kokomo Speedway.

“Hunter Percent” Hunter Schuerenberg is currently third in the All Star standings, followed by Myerstown, Pennsylvania’s Brent Marks and third-year All Star, Cory Eliason.

Justin Peck opens All Star points championship with Spring Nationals win at Attica Raceway Park

ATTICA, Ohio (April 3, 2021) - Already a two-time winner this season in Pennsylvania Posse Country aboard Tom Buch’s Coastal Race Parts No. 13, Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck can now officially add another tally in his FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 win column, doing so by opening the 2021 Series points championship with a victory during Attica Raceway Park’s Spring Nationals on Saturday, April 3. The victory, accompanied by a $6,000 payday, improves Peck’s All Star win total to two over the course of his young career, snapping a near-four year winless streak dating back to his Macon triumph on June 10, 2017.

Lining up third on the All Star main event grid, Peck was a threat from the start, eventually inching his way to second on lap 15, then using a round of slower cars to maneuver by fellow All Star full-timer, Zeb Wise, for the top spot on lap 28. Although traffic was a factor in the remaining distance, Peck held strong, keeping a lapped car between himself and Wise in the final circuits to clinch the trip to victory lane, and ultimately, the All Star championship lead.

“If you would have told me the year was going to begin like this, I would have told you that you were crazy,” an elated Justin Peck said in Attica victory lane. “I can’t say enough about this Tom Buch Motorsports team. My guys continue to give me an outstanding race car every time I hit the race track. We kinda started out the night ‘OK,’ thinking we were no better than a fifth-place race car. But I kept talking to these guys and they kept giving me what I wanted. And here we are standing on the frontstretch.”

Utilizing the pole position, Visalia, California’s Cory Eliason earned the early advantage, taking control on lap one and maintaining the lead through the first five circuits. Although it would keep Eliason out of heavy traffic, a caution on lap six ultimately led to Eliason losing command, as Zeb Wise, who started alongside Eliason on the front row, was able to drive around the Rudeen Racing No. 26 at the exit of turn four to complete the sixth circuit.

Aboard the all-new Wise Priddy Racing No. 10, Zeb Wise was the man in charge for the next several circuits, working the very lowline all the way around Attica Raceway Park. Surviving a single-file restart after another caution on lap 16, Wise and his fellow frontrunners would meet the back of the pack on lap 23, now forced to deal with Peck, who had already climbed to second eight laps prior.

After six laps of battling basically nose to tail, Peck made his move, first setting himself up with a big run through the middle of turns one and two, then diving to the very bottom of three to squeeze by Wise at the exit of turn four. Peck would go on to lead lap 28, maintaining control through the end of the 40-lap contest.

“I just kinda stuck to what I knew how to do,” Peck continued. “I kinda started out just trying to rip around one and two, but it really wasn’t working. So I started to short slide myself and kinda slide my way through it. It really made a difference. I knew if we got to lapped traffic, we were going to have the best shot of winning. What a start to the year.”

Zeb Wise would hold on to finish second at Attica Raceway Park, followed by Hunter Schuerenberg, Brent Marks, and Cory Eliason; an all All Star top five.

The All Star Circuit of Champions will spend a weekend off before returning to competition with a four-day swing through the heart of the Mid-Atlantic on Thursday through Sunday, April 15-18. Action will kick-off with a $12,000-to-win blockbuster at Virginia Motor Speedway on Thursday, April 15, followed by three consecutive nights in Pennsylvania Posse Country. Tony Stewart’s All Stars will take center stage at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, and Bedford Speedway on Sunday. The Williams Grove and Bedford visits will award $6,000 each, while the season’s first visit to Port Royal - the Keith Kauffman Classic - will pay $10,000.

Eleven full-time All Stars stand ready for Attica’s Spring Nationals

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (March 30, 2021) - For the first time in 2021, the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will duel in the dirt for a stake in the season-ending championship standings, opening the points season, officially, with a two-day stop at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, on Friday and Saturday, April 2-3. Dubbed the Core & Main Spring Nationals, the Attica doubleheader will feature two, full programs for Tony Stewart’s traveling All Stars awarding a total winner’s share equaling $11,000; $5,000 on Friday and $6,000 on Saturday.

Facing-off against a stout contingent of Ohio regulars, as well as an expected turnout of regionally-based invaders, eleven full-time All Stars will make the call on Friday and Saturday including a number of familiar and former full-timers such as Cory Eliason, Zeb Wise, Justin Peck, and T.J. Michael.

In addition to a handful of former championship challengers, the All Star Circuit of Champions will be represented by a talented lineup of first-time Series contenders including Kyle Reinhardt, Ian Madsen, Brent Marks, Lucas Wolfe, Bill Balog, Tyler Courtney, and Hunter Schuerenberg. Combined, the 2021 All Star lineup boasts depth, experience and talent, creating one of the most competitive rosters in Series history.

Lucas Wolfe - Coldren Motorsports - No. 07

Now in command of the Coldren Motorsports No. 07, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania’s Lucas Wolfe has the experience and the credentials to be an All Star frontrunner in 2021, and although the second generation racer has yet to score a win with the Series, the 2008 World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year has the means to overcome that statistic, and more. In addition to being a full-time Outlaw competitor for five seasons, and finishing among the top-ten in the final points on four occasions, Wolfe is also a decorated local competitor, winning Central Pennsylvania’s Sprint Car Points Series championship in 2018 aboard Mike Barshinger’s No. 24.

“I’m certainly hoping to be able to rely on past experiences to maximize our first year as a team with the All Stars. We have many hurdles to overcome, especially early in the season, but at this point we just need to get started and evaluate where we are. We can address any issues at that point and figure out our weaknesses.”

Brent Marks - CJB Motorsports - No. 5

Although he is certainly no stranger to All Star Circuit of Champions competition, achieving three Series victories during his career including a Tuscarora 50 weekend sweep [the Night Before The 50 and Tuscarora 50] and a win during the opening night of the 2020 Governors Reign at Eldora, the “Myerstown Missile'' Brent Marks has never been a full-time All Star competitor. That statistic will change in 2021, as the driver of the Carlisle, Pennsylvania-based CJB Motorsports No. 5 will now contend for a Series title, working hard to transfer three years of World of Outlaws experience to the All Star Circuit of Champions campaign trail.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to compete for an All Star championship this season. CJB Motorsports has everything in place for a team to win and they’re prepared like a championship-winning team. Fortunately for myself, I have a lot of experience in my corner with Barry Jackson, who has contended for an All Star title in the past, as well as Derek Miller, who has a lot of time with the Series as a crew chief. That makes me very confident as a driver and I think things will fall into place. This is going to be a new challenge and new challenges are always fun.”

Tyler Courtney - Clauson Marshall Racing - No. 7BC

As a former top performer in USAC, “Sunshine” Tyler Courtney will join the All Star Circuit of Champions ranks with a diverse and competitive open wheel background. The Indianapolis-native is a former USAC National Midget champion (2019), as well as a former USAC National Sprint Car champion (2018), achieving the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame Non-Wing Driver of the Year accolade at the conclusion of his championship season. Although championship points were not on the line, Courtney and Clauson Marshall Racing attained a podium finish during All Star action at Screven Motor Speedway on January 29.

“I don’t feel any outside pressure racing out on the road, whether it be from supporters or my team. If there is any pressure, it’s probably more from myself because I know I can do this, but I also want to prove to everyone else that I can do it, too. I am very confident in my team’s ability to contend for a championship in 2021. We’ve been a championship caliber team up until this point so I don’t see that changing anytime soon. It’s obviously going to be a tough year and we will have lots of firsts, but we are up for the challenge.”

TJ Michael - Michael Motorsports - No. 8M

The ‘Texas Traveler” T.J. Michael will return to the All Star Circuit of Champions ranks full-time in 2021, rejoining “America’s Series” for a third season, but his first since 2017. The Plano, Texas-native, who resides in Fremont, Ohio, during the summer months, will enter his All Star campaign as a two-time FAST Series main event winner, most recently scoring a $5,500 payday at Waynesfield Raceway Park on March 27. Each of Michael’s FAST Series triumphs occurred on Waynesfield’s highbanks.

“Being a former full-time member does make preparing for a schedule like this easier, but it doesn’t make the racing any easier. But, I’m confident that my team will have the knowledge and the confidence to do well each night out. I’m excited for another season on the road.”

Zeb Wise - Wise Priddy Racing - No. 10

The “new kid on the block” no more, Angola, Indiana’s Zeb Wise will return to the All Star Circuit of Champions as one year older and one year wiser, set to compete for a Series championship with a team he partially owns: Wise Priddy Racing. Wise, who finished third in the All Star driver championship in 2020 on the strength of three top-five performances, good enough to also secure Rookie of the Year honors, commenced his competitive nature at a young age, first mastering 1/4-midgets, micros and USAC Midgets before climbing into a 410c.i. winged sprint car. Wise’s most notable feat is perhaps earning the title of being the youngest driver to ever win a USAC National Midget Series victory; 15 years, 8 months and 21 days old.

“I will definitely lean on my prior experiences this season. I learned a ton just being on the All Star tour for a year. Prior to last season, I think I raced a sprint car maybe eight or so times, so just being on the road and focusing on just sprint car racing was a big learning curve in itself. Then, throw in all of the new tracks I visited on top of that. It was a whole new deal for me last year, for sure. So, a lot of what I learned will definitely transfer over to this new team. And yes, there will be new challenges with being a part owner, but I’m really looking forward to getting the new year up and running.”

Ian Madsen - Sam McGhee Motorsports - No. 11

Certainly no stranger to competing full-time with a traveling sprint car Series, St. Marys, New South Wales, Australia’s Ian Madsen, who has since made a home in Des Moines, Iowa, will now hit the road full-time with America’s Series, resuming the role as wheelman for the Indianapolis-based Sam McGhee Motorsports. The former Outlaw turned All Star owns three All Star Circuit of Champions victories over the course of his career, his most recent accomplished during Four Crown Nationals competition at Eldora Speedway in 2016. Early season action in 2021 found Madsen on the podium once, doing so during the All Star invasion of East Bay Raceway Park on February 2.

“Being a former full-time Outlaw does prepare me for the travel and having to live out of a suitcase, but I will actually be away from home for longer periods this year because of the time we spend further east. A lot of these tracks I’ve been to, but a lot I haven’t been to. I’m really looking forward to the challenge of adapting to new tracks as quickly as I can.”

Justin Peck - Buch Motorsports - No. 13

Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck has been making a lot of noise in the sprint car world so far in 2021, and that’s not just due to his announcement to compete full-time with the All Star Circuit of Champions. Peck, who has one All Star victory to his credit - a Macon win in 2017 - has been on a tear in Pennsylvania Posse Country, scoring a recent victory at Port Royal Speedway, and then another at Williams Grove Speedway on consecutive weekends. Paired with the ”Misfits” at Buch Motorsports, Peck will attempt to transfer his early season momentum into a potential All Star championship.

“Building a connection with this team has been really easy. Sean, Kurt and Tom are all great to work with and it didn’t take long to find a comfort zone. Every time I give feedback on how the car is handling, they listen and are able to make the necessary changes pretty quickly. I think being able to get along with the team so well will play a huge role once we get the points season rolling.”

Bill Balog - B Squared Motorsports - No. 17B

Unarguably the most decorated competitor in IRA Outlaw Sprint Car Series history, the “North Pole Nightmare” Bill Balog will now tackle the All Star Circuit of Champions trail in 2021, working to add not only Rookie of the Year bragging rights to his illustrious open wheel resume, but also an All Star title, which would accompany his ten IRA Series championships. In addition to ten titles, Balog is a 127-time IRA main event winner, which is the most all-time. In comparison, Joe Roe is second on the all-time list with 61.

“I think there is always pressure to do well. The schedule this season will be the most challenging schedule I’ve ever attempted, along with the competition. That makes the stress level a little high, but it feels good to finally get out on the road and race a full season with the All Stars.”

Cory Eliason - Rudeen Racing - No. 26

An All Star veteran in some respect, Visalia, California’s Cory Eliason enters his third year as a full-time All Star hungry for a championship. The pilot of the familiar Rudeen Racing No. 26 has yet to finish off of the championship podium, third in 2019 and second in 2020, and owns five-career victories with the organization, most recently finding victory lane during the Tuscarora 50 opener at Port Royal Speedway on Thursday, September 10. Three of Eliason’s five victories were accumulated in 2020, ending his championship run with 29 top-ten finishes in 44 point-earning feature events.

“With our prior experience, I think it’s safe to assume that we could be a favorite to win the title in 2021, considering we finished third in the standings during our first try and second last year. But assuming can be a guaranteed loss. There are a lot of great teams racing full-time this season and they’ve all had strong runs already this year. I think this may be the toughest year yet. Our biggest deal is maintaining consistency in all of our finishes.”

Hunter Schuerenberg - Vermeer Motorsports - No. 55

“Hunter Percent” Hunter Schuerenberg will do his best to be the top rookie in 2021, as well as the best overall, as the ever-familiar Vermeer Motorsports No. 55 will be present at each and every event on the upcoming All Star calendar. A graduate of the non-wing ranks, Schuerenberg found his footing in winged racing immediately, most recently finding victory lane during Attica Raceway Park’s season opener on March 20. In addition, the Sikeston, Missouri-native owns victories against the USAC National Sprint Car Series, Midwest Sprint Car Association (MSCS), Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA), FAST Series, and the IRA Outlaw Sprint Series.

“I think it helps having a points racing type of mentality heading into a season like this. We know what it takes to be consistent. It’s one thing to win a lot of races, but it’s another to know you can’t give away any good finishes. We wouldn’t be racing with the Series if we didn’t think we could contend for a title.”

Kyle Reinhardt - RQM Enterprises - No. 91

At the helm of the RQM Enterprises No. 91, Neptune City, New Jersey’s Kyle Reinhardt will enter the All Star season as a proven winner in Pennsylvania Posse Country, and although early season action in Georgia did not accumulate championship points, the former Port Royal Speedway Labor Day Classic and Selinsgrove Speedway winner is already off to an impressive start. The 2021 Rookie of the Year contender found the podium once during his trip to the Peach State, only to finish second behind three-time Series champion, Aaron Reutzel, during the second of two nights at Screven Motor Speedway.

“Traveling with the All Stars in 2021 is going to bring about a lot of changes for me. I don’t necessarily feel any added pressure though because racing in Pennsylvania every week can be just as intense, but there is definitely a different mentality in place when you’re racing out on the road every week. My team’s goal is to go into each night with the intent to get the most out of it.”

Carson Macedo closes out Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour with victory at Volusia Speedway Park

BARBERVILLE, Florida (February 4, 2021) - Lemoore, California’s Carson Macedo was perfect on Thursday night at Volusia Speedway Park, helping the All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 close out the inaugural Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts with a non-stop, wire-to-wire victory. The DIRTcar Nationals win, scoring Macedo a $6,000 top prize, bumped his All Star win total to seven over the course of his young career, each of which accomplished at different facilities.

“This team did an amazing job tonight and I’m super thrilled with how things are going,” Carson Macedo said, driver of the Jason Johnson Racing No. 41. “We were able to put ourselves in great positions during the entire program and we really executed. I’m just super grateful to be a part of this race team. To come out of the box and win the second night out is pretty incredible.”

Starting from the outside-pole position, the lead was Macedo’s right from the start, cruising the outside groove all the way around Volusia’s half-mile. Relatively unchallenged for most of the 25-lap program, Macedo’s first distraction occurred on lap 11 when a slower car forced the Californian to take evasive action. The slight hiccup allowed Wednesday night winner, Logan Schuchart, to close in on the former All Star turned Outlaw, actually pulling even with Macedo on turn 14. Despite Schuchart’s attempt to overthrow, Macedo escaped unschathed, eventually racing ahead to a lengthy advantage.

Macedo’s only other close call was also in the form of lapped traffic, this time forced to deal with a four-pack of slower cars in the closing circuits. Despite the massive roadblock, Macedo never faltered, ultimately weaving through the potential mess to separate himself from a fast closing Logan Schuchart and Brad Sweet.

“I just kinda told myself to be patient and don’t do anything dumb,” Macedo explained pertaining to the traffic jam with four to go. “I knew what I had to do, but I didn’t want to get hung up because I knew Logan (Schuchart) was behind me. Luckily for me, the lapped cars really didn’t interfere because I don’t think they knew where the best groove was. It all worked out great and I’m thrilled for this team.”

Logan Schuchart held on to finish second, followed by Brad Sweet, David Gravel, and Danny Dietrich.

The All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will return to competition on Friday and Saturday, April 9-10, when the Series visits Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, for the Core and Main Spring Nationals. The two-day program, awarding $5,000 and $6,000, respectively, will also activate the 2021 All Star Circuit of Champions point championship.

Logan Schuchart rallies from 13th to beat All Stars at Volusia Speedway Park

BARBERVILLE, Florida (February 3, 2021) - Starting 13th on the DIRTcar Nationals main event grid, Shark Racing’s Logan Schuchart was far from an odds-on favorite, but the Hanover, Pennsylvania-native accomplished the near-impossible on Wednesday night at Volusia Speedway Park and charged 12 positions to claim the Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts victory against the All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1. Impressive enough, Schuchart outdueled ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz, in the process, driving by the familiar No. 15 on lap 23 of 25.

Bumping his All Star victory count to two, Schuchart earned $6,000 for his efforts. Schatz held on to finish second, followed by Brad Sweet, David Gravel, and full-time All Star, Brent Marks.

“This car was just awesome,” Logan Schuchart said in All Star victory lane, driver of the Drydene, JVI Group, C&D Rigging, No. 1S sprint car. “Before we got out there for the feature, I thought it was going to be a pretty top dominant track, but I was able to move around. I think the top was the place to be, but I was able to go wherever I wanted. I just gotta thank everyone who makes this happen. It was a dream to drive and it’s really cool to get a win right out of the gate.”

“Blackjack” Brian Brown was the first to take command of the 25-lap event, using the outside-pole position to snag the top spot from fellow front row starter, Sheldon Haudenschild. Brown maintained on the point until lap seven when two-time and defending World of Outlaws champion, Brad Sweet, stole the spotlight, sliding “Blackjack” through turns one and two. In similar fashion, Donny Schatz also worked by Brown and took control of the runner-up spot the following circuit.

Traffic came into the picture for the first time on lap nine creating some havoc for Sweet. Although the Grass Valley, California-native was able to work by some early traffic, a roadblock in the form of two lapped cars eventually appeared in turns one and two all but stopping Sweet in his tracks. The momentum shift allowed Schatz to drive right by Sweet, taking command for the first time on lap 13.

Despite Schatz’ ability to maneuver, a caution on lap 20 would allow the field to bunch back together giving Schuchart, who had already climbed his way to fifth, an opportunity to pounce. As suggested, the ensuing restart was just what Schuchart needed, blasting ahead to third before taking over second from Brad Sweet on lap 21. Just two circuits later, Schuchart was in command, using the very bottom of turns one and two to battle by Schatz.

“There was definitely a lot of back and forth action with a lot of good guys,” Schuchart added. “I had to use some quick reaction time to make some things happen. I was just kinda waiting for the guys ahead of me to make a move so I could do the opposite.”

The All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will conclude the inaugural Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts on Thursday evening, February 4, with another round of DIRTcar Nationals competition at Volusia Speedway Park. Like the night prior, the Thursday night All Star program will award a $6,000 payday.

Donny Schatz wins second All Star feature in three starts during visit to East Bay

TAMPA, Florida (February 2, 2021) - For the second time in three starts, Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz is an All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, this time doing so during Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts competition at East Bay Raceway Park near Tampa, Florida. The ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion earned his return to All Star victory lane from the second row, taking command for the first time on lap 15 before fending off a late surge by Ian Madsen and a hard-charging Kerry Madsen. The East Bay win, awarding $6,000, bumped Schatz’ career All Star win total to 20.

“I haven’t been to East Bay since 1993 or 1994. This track is really neat, but it’s also very tricky. You have to respect the place,” Donny Schatz said, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Carquest/Ford Performance/Curb Records/No. 15 sprint car. “The surface can have some slick spots, as well as some wet sports. The dynamic of the track changes so much. I went wherever I had to go. We’re going to enjoy this one.”

Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason led the first eight circuits at East Bay before getting involved in a tangle with a lapped car. Eliason’s misfortune allowed Monrovia, Illinois’ Justin Peck to inherit the top spot. Peck, driver of the Tom Buch-owned No. 13, started fourth on the Tuesday night grid and had actually worked by Schatz for second one lap prior to the aforementioned caution.

Despite Peck’s attempt to outrun Schatz during the ensuing restart, and once more during another single file restart on lap 12, Schatz would eventually prevail, ultimately slipping by Peck with a move on the bottom of turns three and four on lap 15.

Ian Madsen followed Schatz by Peck to take control of the runner-up spot the following circuit. Madsen did his best to catch the 299-time World of Outlaws winner, but Schatz’ ability to split a pair of lappers on lap 28 sealed the deal. Madsen held on to finish second, followed by his brother Kerry Madsen, who climbed 14 positions to earn the final spot on the podium.

“We have some friends here tonight from Absolute Automation and Security. They are from right up the road,” Donny Schatz continued. “It’s pretty cool to come here and win in front of their hometown crowd.”

The All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue the Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts on Wednesday and Thursday, February 4-5, with back-to-back nights of DIRTcar Nationals action at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida.

Heavy rain and overnight flooding forces East Bay Raceway Park to cancel Monday program

TAMPA, Florida (February 1, 2021) - Heavy rains throughout the evening hours on Sunday and into early Monday morning have forced All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 and East Bay Raceway Park officials to cancel Monday evening’s Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts racing program. The event will not be rescheduled.

Overnight downpours created heavy flooding in East Bay Raceway Park’s infield, as well as on parts of the racing surface. Track officials did their best to pump the water away from the track, but officials were left with no time to recover.

The All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will return to East Bay Raceway Park on Tuesday evening, February 2. Hot laps are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., sharp.

Aaron Reutzel scores Screven’s Winter Freeze All Star finale for $10,000

SYLVANIA, Georgia (January 30, 2021) - Although no longer a full-time traveler with “America’s Series,” three-time All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 champion, Aaron Reutzel, picked up right where he left off in 2020 and maneuvered his way back to All Star victory lane, this time scoring $10,000 in Screven Motor Speedway’s Winter Freeze All Star finale on Saturday, January 30. The Clute, Texas-native earned his triumph from the outside of row two, forced to outduel Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild, all before fending off a late charge by Neptune City, New Jersey’s Kyle Reinhardt. The Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts victory bumped Reutzel’s All Star win total to 37; his first at Screven Motor Speedway.

“I can’t thank the entire Roth Motorsports team enough for allowing Dylan (Buswell) and I to come on board and bring our package with us. They took a big risk and we appreciate everything they’ve done for us,” Aaron Reutzel said in Screven victory lane. “We struggled a little bit in Arizona, but we took some time during the week to think about some things. We made a few fine changes and now I feel right at home. Everyone has done such a great job and I can’t say how excited I am enough.”


Donny Schatz opens Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour with $8,000 victory at Screven

SYLVANIA, Georgia (January 29, 2021) - Ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz, etched his name in sprint car racing history books yet again, this time by claiming the first round of the inaugural Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Georgia. Schatz, who now owns 19-career All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victories, scored his triumph from the outside of row two, eventually working by Indianapolis, Indiana’s Tyler Courtney to take control on lap 18. The Fargo, North Dakota-native earned $8,000 for his efforts, also solidifying a first-ever All Star win in Sylvania.

“It’s great to be back racing, first and foremost,” Donny Schatz said in Screven victory lane, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Carquest Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/No. 15 sprint car. “Hats off to this entire Carquest team. These guys have been digging and working as hard as they can to get the car better. All of these preseason races are great for us because it gives us an opportunity to try some things. I just tried to go where the car in front of me wasn’t and it all worked out.”

Before Schatz took command on lap 18, it was a shootout for the top spot. Former ASCS national champion, Sam Hafertepe, Jr., took command from the outside-pole position to lead the first two circuits, eventually overtaken by Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild with a wicked slider through turns three and four on lap three. Haudenschild’s campaign at the front of the field was short-lived, as the pilot of the Stenhouse Jr Marshall Racing No. 17 was forced to spin to avoid involvement in an incident involving lap cars; Sam Hafertepe, Jr. inherited control on lap seven.

All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 rookie contender, Tyler Courtney was next to throw his hat into the ring, making his move around Hafertepe to earn the race lead on lap 15. Courtney was a threat on a few attempts prior to his official takeover, but Hafertepe was able to fend off the charge.

Meanwhile, Donny Schatz lurked just behind the pair of front-runners. Utilizing the very bottom groove of Screven Motor Speedway, the ten-time WoO champ followed Courtney by Hafertepe on lap 16, only to miss a slide job attempt on Courtney on lap 17. Schatz redeemed himself the next circuit and squeezed by Courtney at the exit of turn four to take control.

“We knew the top was going to be good. I just tried to find a line that was going to work the best for us,” Schatz continued. “This surface changed so much over the course of the race and it actually got a lot slicker than I thought it would. It really came in nice for me through the middle and bottom. You could really go anywhere.”

Aaron Reutzel finished second on Friday night after a late move around Courtney on lap 24, followed by Tyler Courtney, Carson Short, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr.

Screven Motor Speedway’s Winter Freeze XI will continue on Saturday evening, January 30, with a second, full program featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1. The two-day Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts finale will award a $10,000 top prize.

All Stars partner with Sugarlands Shine and Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts to heighten six-race Southern Tour through Georgia and Florida

BROWNSBURG, Indiana (January 21, 2021) - The previously scheduled All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 swing through Georgia and Florida just got a makeover, as the six-race campaign to Screven Motor Speedway, East Bay Raceway Park and Volusia Speedway Park has officially transformed into the Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts. The six-race agenda will kick-off on Friday evening, January 29, with a visit to the Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Georgia.

“We are incredibly excited to have Sugarlands Shine and Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts join us for our six races through Georgia and Florida. Their support will heighten our ambitious start to the new year, ” said Tony Stewart, All Star Circuit of Champions owner. “We look forward to these new beginnings with Sugarlands Shine and we hope to continue this relationship long into the future. Cindy Elliott of Elliotts’ Custom Trailers and Carts has been a great supporter of not only the All Stars, but sprint car racing in general, so we are proud to continue that relationship in 2021.”

Sugarlands Distilling Company, located in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, is a craft-distillery producing award-winning moonshine, rum, cream liqueurs and rye whiskey. The “World’s Top-Rated Distillery Experience” offers authentic spirits tastings and first-class entertainment for shine-sipping enthusiasts from coast to coast at their unique barn-house location.

In addition to becoming the title sponsor of the inaugural Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts, Sugarlands Shine will also present a nightly contingency award to the driver who leads lap 21 of the respective All Star feature; the Lap 21 contingency will be awarded during the entire 2021 All Star season.

“Moonshine and the sport of racing have a long-standing history with one another. This partnership is a reflection of that shared connection between fans of shine and fans of the All Star Circuit of Champions,” said Patrick Sullivan, chief sales officer at Sugarlands Distilling Co. “Sugarlands Shine will continue to honor these roots by supporting the All Star Circuit of Champions with the Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour.”

Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts, a premier authorized dealer of inTech, United, Featherlite, ATC, Legend, Alumitech, and Haulmark trailers, as well as EZ Go golf carts, has been serving the greater Warsaw, Indiana-area, as well as customers from across the US, since 1997. Their support of “America’s Series” stems multiple seasons, most recently sponsoring one of two All Star dashes in 2020.

“We’re excited to continue and grow our partnership with the All Star Circuit of Champions by becoming affiliated with the Southern Tour,” said Cindy Elliott, owner of Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts. “We’ve had the privilege of sharing a great experience with the All Star drivers, teams, and officials for several years and we are excited to be back on board for the 2021 season.”

Chasing a total winner’s share equaling $42,000, the traveling All Stars will launch their 2021 Southern Tour with a two-day pit stop at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Georgia, on Friday and Saturday, January 29-30. The two-day Winter Freeze, featuring Tony Stewart’s All Stars for the first time since 2012, will be the richest two days of the inaugural Southern Tour awarding a total winner’s share equaling $18,000; $8,000 on Friday and $10,000 on Saturday.

After a designated travel day on Sunday, January 31, the All Stars will resume their trek through the South with a visit to the Sunshine State, this time invading East Bay Raceway Park just south of Tampa, Florida, on Monday and Tuesday, February 1-2. Right in the heart of their annual Winternationals schedule, the East Bay doubleheader will award back-to-back $6,000 top prizes.

A two and a half hour jaunt northeast will lead the All Stars from Tampa to Barberville where the Series will continue their Southern Tour campaign with a two-day stint at Volusia Speedway Park on Wednesday and Thursday, February 3-4. Continuing a longstanding tradition of All Star action opening the five-day sprint car segment of Volusia’s DIRTcar Nationals, the midweek appearance will award another pair of $6,000 top prizes.

All Stars Add Two Additional Events to 2021 Schedule

BROWNSBURG, Indiana (December 30, 2020) - A pair of events have been added to the upcoming All Star Circuit of Champions slate padding an already impressive Series campaign that will now watch the All Stars battle 61 times in 13 states.

Tri-City Raceway Park in Franklin, Pennsylvania, was the most recent addition to the 2021 All Star campaign and will host the Series travelers on Sunday evening, May 2, and pay $6,000 to the winner. The Missouri State Fair Speedway in Sedalia, Missouri, has also been added to the schedule on Thursday, July 29, and will award $8,000 to the victor.

Creating a three-pack along the Western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio corridor, the trip to Franklin will cap a weekend that will ignite at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania, on Friday, April 30, followed by a trip to Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, on Saturday, May 1.

Tri-City Raceway Park last hosted All Star Circuit of Champions competition on July 23, 2017, with the “Steel City Outlaw” Tim Shaffer scoring high honors. The Aliquippa, Pennsylvania-native owns two All Star victories at the northwest Pennsylvania venue; Jeff Shepard and Dale Blaney each own three, tied for the most victories in 19 Series appearances.

The trip to the Show-Me State on July 29 will be the second in less than a week for “America’s Series,” as the traveling All Stars will visit Lake Ozark Speedway one weekend prior on Friday and Saturday, July 23-24.

The visit to the half-mile at Missouri State Fair Speedway will help pad a busy stretch through the heart of the Midwest and will kick-off what is now a three-race sweep through Missouri and Iowa. The weekend will continue with stops at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, on Friday, July 30, and Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, July 31. All Star officials will look to extend the weekend with a fourth event on Sunday, August 1.

In addition, Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, has been confirmed as the destination for the previously scheduled Wisconsin date set for Sunday, June 6. Angell Park will conclude a four-race trek through Illinois and Wisconsin that includes stops at Fairbury Speedway on June 3, Wilmot Raceway on June 4, and Plymouth Dirt Track on June 5. The visit to Angell Park will award $6,000.

The 2021 campaign begins next month with six events in Georgia and Florida. Screven Motor Speedway will host the first two events on January 29-30 before the Series heads to Florida for four consecutive nights of action at East Bay Raceway Park (February 1-2) and Volusia Speedway Park (February 3-4).

Once again bringing the All Star Circuit of Champions to computer screens and mobile devices all around the world, FloRacing, the official media partner and online broadcast provider of the All Stars, will be on hand to capture each event live.

All Star Circuit of Champions announce 59 dates at 32 tracks in 13 states

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (November 20, 2020) - In just over two months, Tony Stewart’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will commence a new season, set to headline open wheel competition throughout the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, as well as in Georgia and Florida, on 59 different occasions between January 29 and October 9. Headlining action in 13 different states during the new year, the traveling All Stars will kick it all off with a six-pack of non-point action in Georgia and Florida beginning with a two-day invasion of Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Georgia, on January 29-30. The coming season will be the seventh year under the ownership and direction of Tony Stewart.

The two-day visit to the Peach State will award a total winner’s share equaling $18,000; $8,000 on Friday and $10,000 on Saturday. In addition, the All Star invasion of Florida will feature stops at East Bay Raceway Park and Volusia Speedway Park, all of which awarding $6,000 top prizes.

“We are obviously thrilled with the 2021 schedule,” stated Stewart. “Hats off to all the promoters and track owners for working with us early in the process. We have increased our purse payouts and we look forward to another strong class of traveling All Stars. 2020 was a challenging year; we are looking for a fresh start next year. There will be plenty to look forward to for our teams next year.”

Of the 59 events on the 2021 schedule, 52 will pay a minimum of $6,000 to the feature winner and 20 will pay at least $7,000-to-win. Additionally, the Series boasts a stout list of major paying programs including the $54,000-to-win Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway, the $26,000-to-win Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race at Kokomo Speedway, the $17,554-to-win Dean Knittel Memorial at Portsmouth Raceway Park, the Dirt Classic 8 at Lincoln Speedway awarding $20,000-to-win, and a $12,000-to-win visit to Virginia Motor Speedway.

All Star championship points will commence in early April with two days of action at Attica Raceway Park on Friday and Saturday, April 9-10. A traditional spring swing through the heart of the Mid-Atlantic will also be featured on the April calendar with visits to Virginia Motor Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway, Port Royal Speedway, and Bedford Speedway on the agenda. Virginia’s visit, a first since 2019 when Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason scored a $10,000 top prize, will feature a pay increase equaling $12,000.

Partnered with a short trip to Sharon Speedway the following evening, Saturday, May 1, Western Pennsylvania’s Lernerville Speedway will help the Series transition into a new month with a visit on Friday, April 30. Although Lernerville is only featured once on the 2021 calendar, Hartford, Ohio’s Sharon Speedway will host the All Star Circuit of Champions on four separate occasions during the upcoming season; May 1, once more during Ohio Sprint Speedweek on Tuesday, June 15, all capped with a doubleheader on Saturday and Sunday, July 10-11. All four visits, including the Lou Blaney Memorial and Justin Snyder’s Salute to the Troops double in mid-July, will award $6,000 top prizes.

May’s schedule will also feature a Michigan/Illinois sweep at I-96 Speedway and the Dirt Oval at Route 66, a first-ever visit to Circle City Raceway at the Marion County Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, a bullring double at Kokomo Speedway and Gas City I-69 Speedway, and another Central Pennsylvania triple with a $10,000-to-win stop at Williams Grove Speedway and two nights at Port Royal Speedway for the Bob Weikert Memorial. Purse amounts surrounding the Port Royal events will be determined at a later date.

Dubbed the All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation, the aforementioned four-day swing through the Hoosier State, comprised of events at Circle City, Gas City and Kokomo, will all be capped with the third running of the Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race, this time at the Kokomo bullring. Like prior editions, the third annual Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race will award a $26,000 top prize. In addition, a point fund for the All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation will also be up for grabs awarding a minimum of $10,000.

Padding May’s already big punch, large purses will be on the line the entire month, as I-96 Speedway’s visit will feature an $8,500-to-win program and Dirt Oval at Route 66 will award $8,000. Circle City’s two-day showcase, a first-ever All Star program within the Indianapolis city limits, will cap with a $10,000-to-win finale.

June’s agenda needs no introduction, as the annual running of Ohio Sprint Speedweek will headline action with eight events to be contested over a nine-day campaign beginning Friday, June 11, at Attica Raceway Park. The 2021 edition of Speedweek will feature stops at Fremont Speedway on Saturday, June 12, Wayne County Speedway on Monday, June 14, Sharon Speedway on Tuesday, June 15, Waynesfield Raceway Park on Wednesday, June 16, Muskingum County Speedway on Thursday, June 17, Limaland Motorsports Park on Friday, June 18, and Portsmouth Raceway Park on Saturday, June 19. Saturday’s finale will feature the coveted Dean Knittel Memorial awarding a $17,554 top prize.

Although Ohio Sprint Speedweek will certainly headline the month’s schedule, June will begin with consecutive stops to Fairbury American Legion Speedway, Wilmot Raceway, Plymouth Dirt Track, and a third Wisconsin stop, all contested on Thursday through Sunday, June 3-6. The third and final Wisconsin destination will be determined soon.

Continuing a longstanding relationship and rivalry between the All Stars and the Wisconsin-based IRA, the IRA Sprint Car Series will join the All Star Circuit of Champions and co-sanction six stops on the 2021 calendar. The events to be co-sanctioned include Dirt Oval at Route 66, Fairbury, and all three nights in Wisconsin.

After the aforementioned doubleheader at Sharon Speedway on July 10-11, accompanied with a visit to New York’s Stateline Speedway one night prior, the month of July will hit another gear as the Series prepares for a trek west into Missouri, Kansas and Iowa on July 23-31. A doubleheader at Lake Ozark Speedway in the Show-Me State, followed by a visit to Humboldt Speedway in Kansas, will take over headlines before an Iowa double at 34 Raceway and Knoxville Raceway, respectively. July will also feature big money, as Lake Ozark’s two-day visit will award an $18,000 potential: $8,000 on Friday and $10,000 on Saturday.

After a break in the schedule to allow teams the opportunity to compete in the National events at Knoxville Raceway, All Star competition will return with a seven-race August campaign consisting of visits to Michigan, Indiana, and Pennsylvania. Highlighted events include William Grove Speedway’s Jack Gunn Memorial twin features awarding $4,000 each, as well as the $7,300-to-win Kramer Klash at Lincoln Speedway.

Launching an impressive September slate with three events awarding $10,000 or more, Attica Raceway Park’s season-ending Attica Ambush will feature the All Stars over Labor Day weekend awarding a total winner’s share equaling $15,000. The two-day finale will pay $10,000 with St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu scoring the most recent Attica Ambush finale.

Featuring the largest top prize on the 2021 All Star schedule, the three-day, 54th Annual Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway will hit high speed on September 9-11. Saturday’s finale, 50 laps in distance, will award a $54,000 payday. Central Pennsylvania legend and sprint car hall of famer, Lance Dewease, is the defending Tuscarora 50 champion, claiming a check for $53,000 on September 12, 2020.

September’s schedule will continue with return visits to Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway on September 17-18, followed by a trip to the World’s Greatest Dirt Track - Eldora Speedway - for 4-Crown weekend on September 25. Celebrating eight years in 2021, Lincoln’s Dirt Classic 8 will award $20,000.

Concluding in exact fashion as 2020, the 2021 All Star Circuit of Champions schedule will conclude with the two-day Jim and Joanne Ford Classic at Fremont Speedway on October 8-9. The season finale will feature a $10,000 payday.

2021 All Star campaign to begin with six-race swing through Georgia and Florida

Entire All Star schedule to be unveiled in November

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 22, 2020) - Although the off-season has officially commenced, Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 officials have been hard at work preparing the 2021 Series schedule, set to kick-off, officially, with six nights of non-point competition stretched across Georgia and Florida in late January and early February.

The entire 2021 All Star Circuit of Champions schedule is nearing completion and will be unveiled in November.

Chasing a total winner’s share equaling $42,000, the traveling All Stars will launch their 2021 campaign with six starts in seven days spanning January 29 through February 4, igniting their annual southern invasion with a two-day pit stop at the Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Georgia, on Friday and Saturday, January 29-30. The two-day spectacle, featuring Tony Stewart’s All Stars at Screven for the first time since 2012, will be the richest two days of the southern swing awarding a total winner’s share equaling $18,000; $8,000 on Friday and $10,000 on Saturday.

After a designated travel day on Sunday, January 31, the All Stars will resume their trek through the South with a visit to the Sunshine State, this time invading East Bay Raceway Park just south of Tampa, Florida, on Monday and Tuesday, February 1-2. Right in the heart of their annual Winternationals schedule, the East Bay doubleheader will award back-to-back $6,000 top prizes.

A two and a half hour jaunt northeast will lead the All Stars from Tampa to Barberville where the Series will continue their Florida stretch with a two-day stint at Volusia Speedway Park on Wednesday and Thursday, February 3-4. Continuing a longstanding tradition of All Star action opening the five-day sprint car segment of Volusia’s DIRTcar Nationals, the midweek appearance will award another pair of $6,000 top prizes.

East Bay and Volusia were each visited by the traveling All Stars in 2020 with now three-time Series champion, Aaron Reutzel, winning two of the four contested main events. The Clute, Texas-native scored his pair of $5,000 triumphs at Volusia on February 6 and East Bay on February 10. Brad Sweet, who is chasing a second consecutive World of Outlaws title in 2020, opened the 2020 All Star season with a victory at Volusia Speedway Park on February 5.

Kyle Larson, the leading All Star winner during the most recent season with 14 Series victories, capped East Bay action last February with a win on February 11.

Aaron Reutzel concludes 2020 All Star championship season with $10,000 Jim & Joanne Ford Classic triumph

FREMONT, Ohio (October 10, 2020) - For the third time in as many tries, Clute, Texas-native Aaron Reutzel is an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 champion, concluding his third consecutive title with a victory during Fremont Speedway’s annual Jim and Joanne Ford Classic finale on Saturday, October 10. The $10,000 victory, accomplished aboard the familiar Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Brothers Trucking/Fischer Body Shop/Hollywood Blasting and Coating/No. 87 sprint car, bumped Reutzel’s season win total to 11, concluding his championship run with a final points cushion equaling 110 markers over Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason. The 2020 All Star title earned Aaron Reutzel and Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports a $65,000 top prize, increasing the evening’s total value to $75,000.

In addition, Reutzel has now won the season finale in each of his championship attempts.

“I can’t say enough about the Baughmans for giving me such an incredible opportunity to drive their cars. I couldn’t be more proud of this entire team. It’s absolutely incredible what we’ve been able to do in such a short amount of time,” Aaron Reutzel said in Fremont Speedway victory lane. “What we’ve accomplished, I never would have dreamed. Everyone plays a massive part.”

Certainly padding the All Star Circuit of Champions history books, Reutzel’s path to Jim and Joanne Ford Classic victory lane was a dominant one, eventually leading all 40 circuits of the historic program while lapping a substantial amount of the running order. Although slower traffic was in full force during much of the contest, entering the picture as early as lap six, Reutzel never faltered, maintaining control during each wave of lappers, which were separated by a caution on lap 13. A blessing, perhaps, the event’s second and final pause kept Reutzel from having to navigate a moving wall of traffic comprised of cars two and three wide.

From that point forward, Reutzel was untouchable, ultimately escaping to a commanding lead while keeping upwards of five lapped cars between himself and second-place running, Cap Henry. In hot pursuit of a Jim and Joanne Ford Classic weekend sweep, Henry would eventually fade to third, losing a last lap battle to a hard-charging Cole Duncan who surged ahead from 18th.

“Tonight just went our way,” an elated Aaron Reutzel continued. “When you qualify well and get into the dash, you are able to try things. Last night, the rutts never went away. It got slick all around them, but the rutts never went away. I figured tonight was going to be a repeat of that, so I told (crew chief) let’s go for it. Let’s live or die by the rutts. It played out good and it was definitely a gamble. But I wanted to make $10,000 on top of that $65,000. Fremont Speedway was bad ass today.”

As previously stated, Visalia, California’s Cory Eliason ended his 2020 All Star campaign second in the final driver standings, earning three victories along the way including one during Huset’s Speedway’s $20,000 Grand Re-Opening. Zeb Wise, the 2020 All Star Rookie of the Year, concluded his season third in the All Star driver standings, followed by Paul McMahan, Skylar Gee, Greg Wilson, and Josh Baughman.

Cap Henry claims Jim and Joanne Ford Classic Opener at Fremont Speedway for $5,000

FREMONT, Ohio (October 9, 2020) - Forced to chase race-long leader and polesitter, Ian Madsen, for the first 26 circuits, it was a true test of patience and persistence for Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry on Friday evening at Fremont Speedway, and with a little help from slower traffic, the now three-time Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner in 2020 was able to sneak by the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports entry and score the Jim and Joanne Ford Classic Opener at the “Track That Action Built” for a $5,000 payday.

“This has been a real good year for us,” Cap Henry explained in Fremont Speedway victory lane, driver of the Lane Racing/Beer Barrel Bourbon/No. 4 sprint car. “My guys keep working on this thing and they keep making it better and better. This thing was a little bit of a handful at times, but I was confident in my team’s decision making. I’m just so proud of this whole race team. Nobody ever gives up. We can say we won another one at Fremont.”

Although a bridesmaid for over half of the non-stop, 35-lap program, Henry, who started third on the feature grid, was in a position to pounce the entire distance, never allowing Madsen to stretch his legs on Fremont’s slick, yet tricky surface. By lap 12, Madsen found himself amongst a gaggle of slower cars, ultimately giving Henry an opportunity to show his nose on lap 14. Despite missing the opportunity to overtake, Henry kept his focus, continuing on without allowing more than one lapped car to separate himself from the leader for the next 14 circuits.

Seemingly in control, Madsen’s reign at the top of the leaderboard would falter on lap 27, as a slower car would hold up the familiar No. 17 allowing Henry to capitalize. With the aforementioned lapped car forcing Madsen to enter turn one off of his preferred line at the bottom of the speedway, the door was open for Henry, eventually driving underneath Madsen before winning a drag race at the exit of turn two.

Forced to settle for fourth at the final checkers, Madsen would also get overtaken by Cole Duncan and Cory Eliason, who battled for much of the 35-lap contest, exchanging third and fourth on six occasions before settling into second and third, respectively. Shane Stewart, who started fourth, would cross the line fifth.

“As soon as we got into traffic, I knew I was going to have to search around to see what we could find to be better than Ian (Madsen),” Henry continued. “Turn two kind made the difference for us tonight. Ian was pretty committed to what he had to do and we were able to get down and get a run.”

Although earning a podium finish, Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason still trails Aaron Reutzel, who finished eighth during the Jim and Joanne Ford Classic Opener, by 64 markers entering the season finale on Saturday. Considering Reutzel still has feature provisionals available, the championship is all but settled.

All Stars to conclude 2020 season with two-day Jim and Joanne Ford Classic at Fremont Speedway


FREMONT, Ohio (October 6, 2020) - For the first time since 2015, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will sanction Fremont Speedway’s Jim and Joanne Ford Classic, set to headline competition at “The Track That Action Built” on Friday and Saturday, October 9-10. The two-day All Star season finale, also featuring the regionally-based FAST Series, will award a total weekend winner’s share equaling $15,000; $5,000 during the Friday night preliminary and $10,000 during the Saturday night finale.

The Jim and Joanne Ford Classic will welcome the traveling All Stars to Fremont Speedway for the third and fourth time of 2020, as “America’s Series” invaded the northwest Ohio short track for a pair of Ohio Sprint Speedweek programs on July 4-5. Penngrove, California’s Buddy Kofoid and two-time and defending All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel, scored the Speedweek victories, each worth a $5,000 payday.

Reutzel, a ten-time winner on the All Star tour in 2020, two of which accomplished during non-point action in Florida, holds down the championship lead by 74 points entering the Fremont Speedway finale. Seeking a third-consecutive title in as many tries, the Clute, Texas-native will need to outperform Visalia, California’s Cory Eliason, a three-time winner in 2020 including one during the $20,000 Grand Re-Opening at Huset’s Speedway, to secure the $65,000 championship.

Considering Reutzel still owns all four of his Series provisionals, the most Eliason can gain in an evening is 48 points, or 96 over the course of the weekend. Although a longshot scenario, the deficit is not impossible to overcome.

Leading All Star Rookie contender and Indiana-native, Zeb Wise, is third in the championship battle, followed by Nashville-native and open wheel veteran, Paul McMahan, Canadian hotshot, Skylar Gee, and former two-time Series champion, Greg Wilson.

The "Kunkletown Kid" Ryan Smith, a former full-time All Star who has since turned his attention back to weekly action in Central Pennsylvania, is the last to win the Jim and Joanne Ford Classic under the All Star banner, scoring the $10,000 victory on September 19, 2015.

Additional news and notes pertaining to the Jim and Joanne Ford Classic can be found online at www.fremontohspeedway.com.

David Gravel scores Governors Reign title at Eldora for $52,000

ROSSBURG, Ohio (September 23, 2020) - Watertown, Connecticut’s David Gravel etched his name in the Eldora Speedway history books twice in the last two days, first setting a new Eldora Speedway track record of 12.599 during the Governors Reign opener on Tuesday, September 22, then trumping that statistic with a victory in the Governors Reign finale the following evening, scoring a $52,000 top prize in the process while also earning a fourth-career Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory.

The pilot of the Jason Johnson Racing/Weikert’s Livestock/Durst/JRC Transportation/High Performance Lubricants/The Boyd Family/Mesilla Valley Transportation/Saich Family/No. 41 sprint car led all 35 circuits of the Governors Reign finale, but certainly not without a challenge, forced to navigate through doses of heavy traffic, all while trying to fend off a late surge by Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson.

“I just gotta thank this entire team. I am confident we had one of the best cars all week,” David Gravel said in Eldora Speedway victory lane. “To come out here and set two quick times, one a track record, and get a win says a lot about this team. I’m happy to win tonight rather than last night because tonight pays way more. This field was just as stout as any field we’ve seen all season. All of the best are here. It feels really good to beat the best. Anything that pays over 50 grand is a crown jewel to me.”

Larson, who started tenth on the grid, powered his way into the top-five just before the halfway point, eventually snagging fourth from Sheldon Haudenschild on lap 18, then gaining another position over his hired gun, Carson Macedo, the following circuit. A caution on lap 20, the main event’s first and only besides a hiccup on the initial start involving Jacob Allen and James McFadden, allowed Larson to advance again, this time getting by Tuesday night winner, Brent Marks, on the bottom of turns one and two.

Meanwhile, Gravel continued to set a torrid pace, quickly escaping to a healthy advantage after the lap 20 restart. Although traffic eventually re-entered the picture, Gravel was able to maintain his momentum, using both grooves of the speedway to drive under or around bundles of slower cars.

By lap 33, Gravel’s advantage had all but depleted, now feeling some pressure by the season-leading All Star winner, Kyle Larson. In a last-ditch effort on the final lap, Larson dove to the bottom of turn three and attempted to slide the familiar No. 41, only to lose in a drag race to the finish. Sheldon Haudenschild would cross under the final checkers behind Gravel and Larson, followed by Brent Marks and Carson Macedo.

“When you get into lapped traffic, it gets tough to see the cushion. It’s all you can do to not slide the tires,” David Gravel continued. “When I saw the top open up in three on the last lap, I figured I gotta take it. Even if (Kyle Larson) would have slid me, I figured I could turn back underneath him. I saw someone poke their nose before that and I figured it was him. I was just worried about making a couple good laps. I knew he was closing. Sometimes you’re better off being in second in traffic.”

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will conclude the 2020 season with the two-day Jim Ford Classic at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio, on Friday and Saturday, October 9-10. Saturday’s Jim Ford Classic/All Star season finale will award a $10,000 payday. For more news and notes pertaining to Fremont Speedway, please visit www.fremontohspeedway.com.

Brent Marks wins Governors Reign Opener at Eldora Speedway for $10,000

ROSSBURG, Ohio (September 22, 2020) - The first-ever Governors Reign at Eldora Speedway may lack live spectators, but open wheel fans from around the world witnessed history on Tuesday evening at The Big E, as Myerstown, Pennsylvania’s Brent Marks drove his way to Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory lane to secure the opening night win of the inaugural Governors Reign worth $10,000, broadcast exclusively on FloRacing.

Marks, driver of the CJB Motorsports/M&M Painting and Construction/BAPS Auto Paint and Supply/Eagle Hotel/No. 5 sprint car, started fourth on the A-Main grid and marched his way to the front by lap ten, eventually out dueling Kasey Kahne Racing’s James McFadden in a slide job after slide job battle from lap ten through lap 12. Although the former Outlaw and current Williams Grove Speedway championship contender was able to put McFadden by the wayside, Marks was later forced to deal with an ill handling race car, as apparent front-end damage plagued the familiar No. 5 with less than five circuits to navigate.

Despite a late charge by Kerry Madsen, nearly pulling even with the CJB Motorsports entry with just two circuits remaining, and a string of three consecutive cautions including a red flag incident on lap 21, Marks held strong, ultimately crossing under the final checkers to nail down a third-ever All Star Circuit of Champions victory, his first since 2015.

The “Madman” Kerry Madsen held on to finish second at Eldora Speedway, followed by Shane Stewart, a hard-charging Logan Schuchart who advanced 17 positions, and Kyle Larson Racing’s Carson Macedo.

“I was just trying to hold on there at the end,” Brent Marks said on the Eldora Speedway victory lane stage. “I hit a pretty big clump of mud at one point and I think it messed up my steering a little bit. It honestly felt like something could have been broken. At that point, I was just trying to hang on.

“I’m really confident heading into tomorrow, but I think we’ll have a little bit of a different track surface,” Marks continued. “I can’t thank my team enough. Everyone works so hard and I appreciate what they do. Hopefully we can come back here and do it again.”

What’s Next:
Eldora Speedway’s first-ever Governors Reign will continue on Wednesday evening, September 23, with a second, full Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 program, this time awarding a $52,000 payday.

Kyle Larson scores 14th All Star win of 2020 in Lincoln’s Dirt Classic 7

ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (September 20, 2020) - For the 14th time of 2020, Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson found his way to Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory lane, and a big trip it was, scoring Lincoln Speedway’s Dirt Classic 7 for a $20,000 top prize.

Dominating much of the evening program, Larson, aboard the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/Durst/Lucas Oil/Tarlton and Sons/No. 57 sprint car, led every circuit of the 40-lap finale, kicking things off in the Pigeon Hills with a win in each of his respective Dirt Classic heat races. Impressive enough, the Lincoln Speedway win is actually Larson’s second of the week, first securing $6,900 during the unsanctioned Weldon Sterner Memorial on Wednesday, September 16.

With all victories across all divisions included, Larson now owns 39 wins in 2020.

“My car felt great all night, so I was really happy about that. To get the win in our second heat race allowed us to carry that momentum into the feature,” Kyle Larson explained, who leads the 2020 All Star Circuit of Champions win count. “Central Pennsylvania is as tough as it gets. The first couple years coming out here, I only got to run maybe seven or eight times, but now that I’ve been coming out here a lot more with Paul (Silva), we’ve been quick. It just shows how good Paul prepares these cars and what our team is able to do. We certainly couldn’t do it without everyone who helps.”

Larson was relatively unchallenged during the entire 40-lap program with his only disturbances in the form of cautions; a pair of yellow flags on lap 26 and 31, and one red flag stoppage on lap 35.

Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri chased Larson for much of the Dirt Classic main event, snagging second from Rico Abreu on lap three and maintaining that position until the caution on lap 31. The ensuing restart allowed two-time All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel, and former full-time Outlaw contender, Brent Marks, to drive by the Macri Concrete No. 39M. The red flag stoppage on lap 35 for a tangled Paul McMahan and Danny Dietrich allowed Reutzel the opportunity to restart on the tail tank of the familiar No. 57, but Larson proved to be too much to overcome, driving off to score the $20,000 payday.

Aaron Reutzel finished second, followed by Brent Marks, Rico Abreu and Anthony Macri.

“Those last 15 or so laps, the cautions really worked out for me,” Larson continued. “That allowed me to just kinda focus on the track in front of me, as well as keep the tires underneath me. The first 25 laps were fun, too. When I caught traffic, I really wasn’t sure what to do because all of the lap cars were kinda the same speed. I never really saw a nose inside of me, so I didn’t feel pressured much.

“Thanks to all of the fans for coming out and supporting this race. We always talk about the competition in Pennsylvania, but the race fans are second to none. We love coming out here and getting to see everyone.”

What’s Next:

Aaron Reutzel wins Jack Gunn Memorial at Williams Grove Speedway


MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (September 18, 2020) - Two-time and defending Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 champion, Aaron Reutzel, has certainly found his stride in Pennsylvania Posse country, winning at the famed Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, for the third time in the last two seasons, this time scoring the annual Jack Gunn Memorial for a $5,000 payday.

A contender the entire evening at the paperclip-shaped half-mile, Reutzel drove ahead from fourth on the grid and took command for the first time on lap 14, sneaking under KCP Racing’s Gio Scelzi at the exit of turn two and never looking back. The Jack Gunn Memorial title is Reutzel’s second at The Grove, also owning a Tommy Hinnershitz Classic triumph. The victory also propelled the Clute, Texas-native to the double-digit win mark, now owning ten All Star victories in 2020.

“Our car was phenomenal tonight,” Aaron Reutzel said, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Fischer Body Shop/Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting/Folkens Brothers Trucking/No. 87 sprint car. “I could move around; blast the top, run through the middle, run the bottom. Sometimes it pays off to be in second or third where you can move around like that. My crew chief is from Australia and he really wanted to win a race (at Williams Grove Speedway). It’s pretty special that we were able to make that happen. Just an awesome night all around.”

Getting away third at the initial start, it took Reutzel only eight circuits to find his way around second-place running Brian Brown, utilizing the speedway’s top grove to power by the 2020 Knoxville Raceway track champion. In the meantime, outside-pole sitter and Fresno-native Gio Scelzi was the man in charge, extending his lead to nearly a straightaway by the time Reutzel found his way to the tailtank of Brown.

Lapped traffic entered the picture by lap 11 creating an instant momentum block for Scelzi. With slower cars cutting down on Scelzi’s mobility, Reutzel closed-in in a hurry, putting himself well within striking distance by lap 13. The following circuit, Reutzel made his bid for the lead, entering turn one as low as he could before driving up across the race track and in front of the KCP Racing No. 18.

From that point forward, the bottom is where Reutzel stayed, keeping his focus ahead as Scelzi, Brown and Larson battled behind him. Although a caution on lap 29 would set-up a green-white-checkered restart, Reutzel never faltered, using clean air and a clear track to solidify his place in Williams Grove Speedway victory lane.

Gio Scelzi hung on to finish second, followed by Kyle Larson, Paul McMahan and Brent Marks.

“I just got lucky at the right time that allowed me to get a run on Gio (Scelzi),” Reutzel continued. “He ended up moving down in three and four, but didn’t move down yet in one and two, but I think he thought he was still OK on the top. You never want to pull the trigger too soon and not clear. Luckily, I was able to get down there and make it stick and get by him. From that point on, I was able to stay on the bottom and just hit my marks.”

“I should have known to get down there a little sooner,” Gio Scelzi said, driver of the KCP Racing/Logan Contractors/Aspen Aire, Inc./No. 18 sprint car. “(Aaron Reutzel) deserves to win; he drove the smarter race.”

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will conclude their final trek through the Keystone State with a visit to the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, September 19. The annual Dirt Classic will headline action in the Pigeon Hills awarding a $20,000 top prize.

The All Stars are set for final PA visit of 2020 with starts at Williams Grove and Lincoln


BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 17, 2020) - A mere six starts remain on the 2020 Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 schedule, and two of those six will be contested in the Keystone State, extending an open wheel rivalry that has been in effect since the Series’ inception.

The traveling All Stars and Pennsylvania Posse will go head-to-head for the final time this season on Friday and Saturday, September 18-19, chasing a total winner’s share equaling $25,000. The weekend will ignite with the rescheduled Jack Gunn Memorial at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday evening, September 18, followed by the $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, September 19. Padding some extra punch to the weekend agenda, Williams Grove’s Jack Gunn Memorial will also act as Dirt Classic Qualifier, granting the winner an automatic bid into Saturday’s $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic showstopper.

Williams Grove and Lincoln are certainly synonymous with All Star competition, with each hosting America’s Series on one other occasion in 2020. Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson secured top honors during the last All Star visit to Williams Grove Speedway, holding off Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri and fellow national invader, Kerry Madsen, for the Hinnershitz payday.

A surprise upset in its own right, 2017 USAC National Midget Series champion, Spencer Bayston, was victorious during the last All Star invasion of Lincoln, keeping a pair of sprint car champions, Aaron Reutzel and Brian Montieth, in his rearview mirror.

The traveling All Stars and infamous Pennsylvania Posse last flexed their muscles during the three-day Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway on September 10-12. Although Cory Eliason, who is currently second in the All Star title chase, kicked-off the weekend with a Thursday night preliminary victory, it was Central Pennsylvania legend and Hall of Famer, Lance Dewease, who put the Posse up two to one at the weekend’s conclusion, winning Friday’s preliminary before capturing the $53,000 Tuscarora 50 finale on Saturday.

Two-time and defending All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel, is currently on top of the Series title chase, now 50 points ahead of Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason entering their Central Pennsylvania doubleheader. Although Reutzel outweighs Eliason in the win column with seven victories to Eliason’s three, it’s consistency and the ability to finish races that has kept Rudeen Racing in the hunt for a first-ever Series title, earning 27 top-ten finishes in 38 feature starts. Technically, Reutzel owns nine victories in 2020 with his first two occurring in Florida where points were not accumulated.

Lance Dewease collects $53,000 in seventh Tuscarora 50 victory at Port Royal Speedway

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (September 13, 2020) - For the seventh time in his career, National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Lance Dewease is a Tuscarora 50 champion at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania, collecting a $53,000 payday in the process, as well as over $1,000 in lap money, while simultaneously stretching his Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 win count to 41, 12 of which at the Port Royal “Speed Palace.”

“My guys work really hard. This car was easy to drive tonight and that’s the key,” an elated Lance Dewease said in Port Royal Speedway victory lane, driver of the Kreitz Racing, Schannauer Plumbing and Heating, Hess Ornamental Iron, No. 69K sprint car. “I’m just happy for all of the guys and all of our sponsors. It’s a whole-team effort. Everyone works so hard.”

The Fayetteville, Pennsylvania-native, who started from the pole position as the result of a top-six redraw, was in command of the feature field for the first 18 circuits, as well as the final 13, losing the top spot to St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu on lap 19 before reclaiming the lead on lap 38. Abreu, who started alongside Dewease on the front row, earned the advantage over the Kreitz Racing No. 69K during a battle in traffic, first missing a slide job attempt on lap 14 before officially taking the lead on lap 19.

Unfortunately for Abreu, a problem with the car’s universal joint forced the familiar No. 24 to go pit-side allowing Dewease to inherit command shortly after the competition yellow at half way.

“I think I was being a little too conservative with the lapped cars which allowed Rico (Abreu) to get by me,” Lance Dewease said. “I thought we would get back by him among the lap cars because I felt like I was hitting some pretty good marks. We probably weren’t as good as we were last night, but the track was pretty tricky. You can have the fastest car at the track and still not win if you don’t catch some breaks. We caught the breaks tonight.

“When I started racing, I just wanted to race. Kinda like Kyle (Larson), I just wanted to race. It didn’t matter what it was. To be doing this for four decades means two things: I’m old and I’ve been fortunate enough to be pretty successful for a long time. I’ve had the opportunity to drive for a lot of great people.”

Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri would battle ahead four spots to finish second at the Port Royal “Speed Palace,” followed by Dylan Cisney, a hard-charging Kyle Larson from 22nd, and Thursday night winner, Cory Eliason.

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue the month of September with another round in Pennsylvania Posse Country, this time revising Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway on Friday and Saturday, September 18-19. The final All Star visit to Pennsylvania of 2020 will be headlined with the annual $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway.

Lance Dewease drives by Macri and Larson to score Night Before the 50 prize at Port Royal Speedway

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 11, 2020) - Central Pennsylvania living legend, Lance Dewease, made the Pennsylvania Posse diehards extra proud on Friday night at Port Royal Speedway, not only defending home dirt against the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 during the annual Night Before the Tuscarora 50, but driving by, unarguably, the hottest open wheel ace on the planet, Kyle Larson, in the process. The All Star victory, the 40th of Dewease’s illustrious career and 11th at the Port Royal “Speed Palace,” secured the Fayetteville, Pennsylvania-native a $6,000 payday, as well as an automatic starting position in Saturday’s 50-lap, $53,000-to-win finale.

“I wanted to beat him pretty bad,” an elated Lance Dewease said of Kyle Larson in Port Royal Speedway victory lane. “When he beat me earlier in the year here, he waved at me when he passed me coming off of four. I didn’t wave at him when I passed him tonight. Hats off to my entire crew here. Kyle (Larson) hasn’t been passed too many times this year once he’s had the lead.”

Dewease’s march to the Port Royal Speedway victory lane platform commenced from the outside of row two, and although the lead pair, Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson and Dillsburg, Pennsylvania’s Anthony Macri, sliced and diced for much of the 30-lapper, it was a waiting game for Dewease, not taking command for the first time until lap 25. In fact, Larson, who led the first 24 circuits, exchanged the lead with Macri on at least three occasions, all of which countered by Larson before the duo made their way back to the flagstand. In the meantime, Dewease loomed in third, maintaining a straight and steady pace around Port’s notorious bottom groove.

Lap after lap, Macri pressured Larson and the Paul Silva-owned No. 57 entry, especially utilizing lapped traffic that came into play for the first time on lap 12. The momentum change due to slower cars allowed the “Concrete Kid” to slide Larson through turns three and four on lap 14, and again through turns one and two on lap 21, each negated by “Yung Money.” Banging the boards on both ends of the speedway, Macri gave it one final try on lap 25, but to his surprise, and Larson’s, it was Dewease who pulled the trigger, ultimately slipping by the lead pair with a power move through the bottom of turns three and four.

“That’s the only way we can beat these guys,” Lance Dewease continued, driver of the Kreitz Racing, Schannauer Plumbing and Heating, Hess Ornamental Iron, No. 69K sprint car. “Both of those guys are really good; Anthony (Macri) has come a long way and Kyle (Larson) is the best in the business right now. You don’t get to pass guys like that too often. We were good all night and we were good last night, too, we just had some issues under caution. I was able to keep pace tonight and I figured I would be able to keep a better pace once those guys got to traffic. Kyle really never got away from us. I knew I would get a shot at them as long as the cautions didn’t come out putting everyone back in clean air.

“A big thanks to all of the fans for coming out tonight. Thank you all for supporting us week in and week out.”

Macri, who finally worked his way around Kyle Larson on lap 29, chased Dewease to the final checkers, followed by Larson, Dylan Cisney and Rico Abreu.

Cory Eliason earns fifth-career All Star win in Tuscarora Weekend opener

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (September 10, 2020) - For the fifth time in his career, and for the first time in Pennsylvania, Visalia, California’s Cory Eliason is an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so during night one of the 53rd running of the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway. The 2019 All Star Rookie of the Year is now a three-time Series winner in 2020, accumulating all three since August 2 when the driver of the Rudeen Racing entry secured $20,000 during the Huset’s Speedway grand reopening. The Port Royal Speedway victory earned Eliason a $6,000 top prize.

“They don’t call this place the ‘Speed Palace’ no nothing,” Cory Eliason said in victory lane, driver of the Rudeen Racing/Hagar Realty/Rayce Rudeen Foundation/No. 26 sprint car. “It was a blast here tonight. Definitely a lot different than what we saw on Monday during the Labor Day Classic. The kind of track we had here tonight is kinda my forte. Hats off to this entire team. They work hard and continue to work hard day in and day out. We were fast right out of the gate tonight and it really showed. All we can do is come back tomorrow and try to do this again.”

Lining-up third on the main event grid, Eliason was an obvious threat right from the start. Although forced to withstand a pair of red flag incidents which halted action before a single lap could be completed, and fading one position to fourth when the race finally commenced, Eliason was quick on his feet, eventually regaining third from Kerry Madson on lap two, then sneaking by Brian Brown to capture second with only three laps in the books. Meanwhile, feature pole sitter Tony Stewart was the man in charge, maintaining command over the field while Eliason moved through the top five.

By lap six, Eliason was all over Tony Stewart for the race lead, actually pulling even with the three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion as the pair raced into turn one to begin lap seven. Unfortunately for Eliason, caution flags would wave, negating Eliason’s bid for the lead. Eliason would be forced to restart second with Kerry Madsen and Brian Brown in tow.

Despite the ensuing restart not giving Eliason the jump that he needed, it was only a matter of time, as the 2020 All Star championship contender put himself back within striking distance by lap 12. In much similar fashion as lap seven, Eliason dove to the bottom of turn one to begin lap 13 and slid across the nose of Stewart, securing control for the California hotshoe for the first time.

Once in command, it was smooth sailing for Eiason, and although faced with a number of cautions, one of which inducing a green-white-checkered finish, and a few glimpses of slower traffic, on top of the field is where Eliason stayed. Kerry Madsen battled home to finish second, followed by Tony Stewart, Gio Scelzi and Tyler Courtney.

“We worked on a few things tonight, but nothing major,” Eliason said. “We were fortunate enough to find the curb which allowed us to make up a lot of ground in three and four. I really didn’t have to adjust my driving style much to determine how the car was going to act. I’ve always wanted to stand up here in Port Royal’s new victory lane, and now here we are. Just an awesome night all around.”

In addition, the preliminary victory secured Eliason a spot in Saturday’s 50-lap, $53,000-to-win main event.

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue Tuscarora 50 weekend with another round of preliminary competition on Friday evening, September 11. Like Thursday, Friday’s preliminary main event will award a $6,000 top prize. For more information, please visit Port Royal Speedway online at www.portroyalspeedway.com.

Rico Abreu scores $10,000 in Attica Ambush finale at Attica Raceway Park

ATTICA, Ohio (September 5, 2020) - It did not come easy, but St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu left the home of “Ohio’s Finest Racing” on Saturday evening as an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 winner, scoring the Attica Ambush finale at Attica Raceway Park for a $10,000 payday. Abreu, who started second on the feature grid, led the final 27 circuits to nail down the five-figure winner’s share, but was forced to fend off the likes of Trey Jacobs and Aaron Reutzel along the way.

His first since cashing in for $5,000 at Muskingum County Speedway in July, Abreu is now a two-time All Star winner in 2020, bumping his career total to nine in the process.

Two-time and defending Series champion, Aaron Reutzel, finished second in the Ambush finale, followed by Cap Henry, Ian Madsen and Trey Jacobs.

“That’s an intense 40 laps here,” an elated Rico Abreu said in victory lane, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Whistle Stop Bar and Grill/Self Made Racing/Salty’s BBQ/Dancer Logistics/J. Davidson Scrap Metals/Wiser Golf/ShopRico.com/No. 24 sprint car. “You really have to be patient and know that your car is going to keep coming to you. Wow, what a crowd. This is great for Attica.”

Although starting from the outside-pole position, it was polesitter and Wooster, Ohio-native Trey Jacobs who earned the initial jump, driving away from Abreu and Cale Thomas to lead the first circuit. A caution on lap two would freeze the running order the first time giving Abreu a second chance at snagging command. The ensuing restart would prove to do Abreu a favor, ultimately utilizing his momentum to sneak up on Jacobs and capture the lead by lap five.

Despite Abreu’s attempts in maintaining a quick pace around the outer edge of the speedway, it was Jacobs who kept his focus on the bottom and eventually tracked down the leader, first losing a drag race on the frontstretch before regaining control officially on lap 12. A caution on lap 13 would pause the race yet again giving Abreu another chance to restart on the tailtank of Jacobs. As displayed before, Abreu took advantage of the restart and worked up enough momentum to slingshot around Jacobs on lap 14.

In the meantime, Aaron Reutzel was on the move, powering his way to third from sixth by lap 15 before getting by Jacobs to take second with 25 circuits in. By lap 30, the heat was on between Abreu and Reutzel, racing nearly nose-to-tail for the next several circuits. The Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports entry showed Abreu its nose on a few occasions, and even with periods of slower traffic playing in Reutzel’s favor, Abreu never faltered. At the finish, Abreu and Reutzel were separated by a mere-1.08 seconds.

“I knew Reutzel was pressuring me, or somebody was pressuring me. You can kinda sense those things,” Rico Abreu continued. “I moved around, but I was just way too free on the bottom. I could keep my car really propped up on the top. Just hats off to my team. We enjoy coming to Attica and we’re already looking forward to coming back.”

“That was all I had,” Aaron Reutzel said after finishing second. “I didn’t realize the race was about to end when it did. I’m not sure what more I could have done. I got to where I could run the top really hard and he started to get tight. I tried to move to the bottom with the intent to get him to move to the bottom, which he did for a little bit, but I didn’t capitalize. I felt like my car was getting better and better, but it was so hard to get runs.”

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue the month of September with a three-day stay at Port Royal Speedway on Thursday through Saturday, September 10-12. The 53rd running of the Tuscarora 50 is on the weekend agenda awarding a top prize equaling $53,000 on Saturday night. The All Star blockbuster, the highest paying program on the 2020 schedule, will kick-off with a pair of $6,000-to-win preliminary main events on Thursday and Friday.

Tim Shaffer scores first All Star victory of 2020 during Attica Ambush opener

ATTICA, Ohio (September 4, 2020) - A name certainly synonymous with Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 competition, but left winless with the Series since February of 2019, the “Steel City Outlaw” Tim Shaffer proved to the open wheel world that he still has what it takes to be an All Star winner, breaking through during Attica Raceway Park’s Attica Ambush opener on Friday night for a $5,000 top prize.

Resulting in the 67th All Star Circuit of Champions victory of his illustrious career, the Aliquippa, Pennsylvania-native led all 40 circuits at the Attica short track to secure his trip to victory lane, withstanding early pressure from fellow sprint car veteran, Jac Haudenschild, before holding off Shane Stewart in the closing circuits. Shaffer is now an eight-time Series winner at Attica Raceway Park, officially tied with Frankie Kerr for second on the all-time Attica All Star win list.

“It’s been a while. I haven’t run with the Series steady, but we’re just out here building a team,” Tim Shaffer said in Attica Raceway Park victory lane, driver of the Canton Erectors, Grove Racing, No. 28 sprint car. “We can only run a limited schedule so we have to make it worthwhile when we do run. Hats off to my guys. Everybody has stepped up and here we are. These kids are getting harder and harder to beat.”

Inheriting a front row starting position after a false start by Cale Conley during the initial green, Shaffer drove on to gain the early advantage, leading Jac Haudenschild and Cale Conley by the flagstand for the first time. Searching around the speedway early, Shaffer found his rhythm within the first few circuits, eventually relying on the top of turns one and two and the bottom of turns three and four. Although in control the entire distance, traffic was never a factor for the former All Star Circuit of Champions titlist, as cautions on lap 10, 21 and 36 kept Shaffer in clean air.

Despite a few early attempts by Haudenschild to work by the Grove Racing No. 28, it was Bixby, Oklahoma’s Shane Stewart who challenged Shaffer late, putting himself in view of the lead after sneaking by the “Wild Child” at the exit of turn four on lap 18.

A caution on lap 36 for a troubled Cory Eliason, who was battling for a top-five spot at the time of the incident, gave Shane Stewart one final opportunity to gain the edge over Shaffer, but the “Steel City Outlaw” proved to be too strong with a clear track ahead.

“This is Attica,” Shaffer continued. “If you don’t move around, you’re going to get it handed to you. The track definitely changes throughout the night. I was hoping I was doing the right things.”

Stewart chased Shaffer to the final checkers, followed by Cale Thomas, Cale Conley and Paul McMahan. Although missing the top-five, Rico Abreu gained 16 positions to finish sixth.

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their Attica Ambush weekend on Saturday evening, September 5. The two-day finale will award a $10,000 top prize. For more information, such as gate times and ticket prices, please visit Attica Raceway Park online at www.atticaracewaypark.com.

BROWNSBURG, Ind.

The three-day showstopper will hit the ground running with back-to-back $6,000-to-win preliminary programs on Thursday and Friday, September 10-11. Each preliminary feature winner will be guaranteed a starting position in Saturday’s 50-lap main event.

Already boasting a winner’s share equaling $53,000, every starter who qualifies for the historic 50-lapper on Saturday, September 12, will be awarded a minimum of $1,500. On the whole, Saturday’s A-Main purse exceeds $115,000; a $12,500 increase from 2019. In addition, a non-qualifiers program will also be conducted during Saturday’s weekend finale which gloats a $2,000-to-win, $400-to-start purse.

Aaron Reutzel outruns Danny Dietrich to become first repeat All Star winner at Bedford Speedway

BEDFORD, Pa. (August 30, 2020) - The first seven visits to Bedford Speedway resulted in seven different winners, but two-time and defending Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 champion, Aaron Reutzel, crossed into the mult-time threshold on Sunday night and claimed a second Bedford Speedway feature win, doing so over Central Pennsylvania rival and recent Series winner, Danny Dietrich. The All Star victory, accompanied by a $5,000 top prize, was Reutzel’s ninth of the 2020 season, well on his way to a third consecutive Series championship with 11 events remaining on the schedule.

“I really can’t say enough about this team. I can’t be more proud of them,” Aaron Reutzel said, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports, Folkens Brothers Trucking, Fischer Body Shop, Hollywood Blasting and Coating, Precision Catalyst, No. 87 sprint car. “To come back after everything that’s happened, and to win like we did, I couldn’t be more proud of everyone involved. We are really proud of this one tonight.”

Despite starting from the pole position, Reutzel did not lead from start to finish. In fact, the Clute, Texas-native lost the initial battle for the top spot, allowing Dietrich, who started from the outside-pole position, to drive away and lead the first two circuits. A caution on lap three would act as Reutzel’s saving grace, giving the championship hopeful a second chance at controlling the field.

Reutzel’s ensuing restart went off without a hitch, nearly tied to the back bumper of the Gary Kauffman Racing entry as the lead duo raced by the single-file restart cone. Keeping that momentum handy, Reutzel immediately dove to the bottom of turn one and slid across the nose of Dietrich, officially capturing the lead at the exit of turn two.

Although finding a few opportunities to catch Reutzel in traffic, Danny Dietrich would have to settle for second, followed by Paul McMahan, Brent Marks and Cory Eliason.

“I knew I wanted to be right on his back bumper when we came down for the restart. The smart thing for (Dietrich) to do would have been to slide himself, but he left the door open for me and I was able to go in there and slide him,” Reutzel continued. “I knew that restart was going to mean everything because clean air was so important here tonight. Regardless, we had a phenomenal race car. I just couldn’t be more proud.”

What’s Next:

Spencer Bayston goes wire-to-wire at Lincoln Speedway for Kramer Klash victory

ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (August 29, 2020) - Forced to fend off a few of Central Pennsylvania’s elite, as well as the two-time and defending Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 champion, Lebanon, Indiana’s Spencer Bayston cruised into Pennsylvania Posse Country on Saturday night and left a winner, scoring the inaugural Kramer Klash at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway for a $7,300 payday. The wire-to-wire victory, leading all 35 circuits in the Pigeon Hills, pushed Bayston’s All Star win total to three, his first since dominating an Ohio Sprint Speedweek program at Muskingum County Speedway on June 22, 2017.

Clute, Texas’ Aaron Reutzel battled ahead from sixth to finish second, followed by Brian Montieth, Tim Wagaman and a hard-charging Cory Eliason, who worked his way forward from 15th.

“I’m going to have to go back and watch this one again, because I feel like I was pretty ugly in traffic,” Spencer Bayston said jokingly in Lincoln Speedway victory lane, driver of the Swindell Speedlab, Bear Archery, John Christner Trucking, No. 39 sprint car. “I kept hearing guys behind me, but I just tried to keep my eyes ahead and stay focused. I don’t have enough laps yet to have enough confidence to drive through traffic as hard as I should. But man, this car; every time I had the chance to drive it, we had speed. We had speed right out of the gate tonight.”

It was Aaron Reutzel who applied the pressure during the final 14 circuits of the 35-lap contest, but it was Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich who applied the pressure during the first 21 circuits, utilizing the outside-pole position to power into second right from the drop of the green flag. Using every inch of Lincoln’s configuration, Dietrich did everything he could to track down the Swindell Speedlab entry, eventually reaching the back bumper of the well-known No. 39 in traffic with 12 laps clicked off the counter.

By lap 17, the top three were battling under a blanket, now including Aaron Reutzel, who dived below multi-time track champion, Brian Montieth, to claim third just two laps prior.

Banging the topside of the speedway, the frontrunners continued their nose-to-tail battle for several circuits, that until Dietrich set-up, and partially executed, his first, true takeover attempt on lap 22. As the lead pair were entering turn one, Bayston stayed high, ultimately opening the bottom lane for Dietrich. The former Lincoln Speedway track champion took advantage and pulled off a perfect slider to get by Bayston, but to Dietrich’s demise, a lapped car was blocking his path causing the familiar No. 48 to spin. The 360-degree spin forced Dietrich to retire to the tail of the field. Reutzel inherited second with Montieth following suit; that is where they stayed.

“I know they were close there a few times,” Bayston continued. “Those cautions really did fall in our favor. Having a little luck on our side isn’t a bad thing. I’m very lucky and I’m proud to be a part of this team. To leave here tonight on top after watching these guys race all year is just incredible. I’m so happy right now.”

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will conclude their four-day sweep through Pennsylvania Posse Country with a visit to Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pennsylvania, on Sunday evening, August 30. The Sunday night showstopper will award a $5,000 top prize. For those seeking additional information, please visit Bedford Speedway online at www.bedfordspeedway.com.

Danny Dietrich opens All Star swing through PA with dramatic Thunder Cup win at Grandview

BECHTELSVILLE, Pa. (August 27, 2020) - ‘Double-D’ Danny Dietrich defended Pennsylvania Posse Territory proudly on Thursday night and opened the four-day Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 swing through the Keystone State with a victory at Grandview Speedway. The second Series win of the season for the Gettysburg-native, Dietrich was forced to outduel two-time All Star champion and championship point leader, Aaron Reutzel, on his way to the Thunder Cup win, doing so in dramatic fashion with just one circuit remaining.

Dietrich, who was battling in the second position when the white flag was waved, made incidental contact with race leader, Aaron Reutzel, as the duo were entering turn one. The contact, Dietrich’s front bumper to Reutzel’s back bumper, caused the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports entry to lose grip and spin, ultimately allowing Dietrich to inherit the top spot. Dietrich survived the ensuing green-white-checkered restart to score the $5,000 payday. The Grandview Speedway win bumps Dietrich’s All Star career-win total to 13.

“We were really good. I wanted to win pretty bad,” Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, Graver’s Garage, No. 48 sprint car. “Aaron (Reutzel) and I race each other pretty hard. I can’t thank my crew enough. These guys work hard all week to come out here and do this.”

Utilizing the pole position, Reutzel jumped to the early advantage with Freddie Rahmer, Paul McMahan and Danny Dietrich in tow. Reutzel maintained control for the first 20 circuits, keeping a firm grip on the field even after slower traffic appeared as early as lap eight. In the meantime, Dietrich was climbing, eventually sneaking by McMahan to take control of third on lap six, just before driving underneath Freddie Rahmer to snag second three circuits later.

A caution on lap 12 gave Dietrich the opportunity to restart on the tail tank of Reutzel. Despite clean air and a clear track for the Texan, Dietrich stayed glued to the No. 87, keeping pace as the duo found the back of the field yet again on lap 17.

On lap 21, Dietrich made his first bid for the lead, using momentum to blast around Reutzel at the exit of turn two. Not deterred by the move, Reutzel returned the favor on lap 24, also using momentum to blast around Dietrich to reclaim the top spot at the exit of turn two. Reutzel maintained control until lap 34, hugging the very bottom of the speedway where the faster groove seemed to be. With less than a car length separating the lead pair, the duo made the aforementioned contact entering turn one on the white flag lap.

“I think we had the better car,” Dietrich continued. “I could run way harder into the corner than (Reutzel) could. We have twin features tomorrow night. We’ll be back at it then.”

Christopher Bell, who climbed from fifth, chased Dietrich during the green-white-checkered finish, followed by Freddie Rahmer, James McFadden and Paul McMahan.

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their four-day swing through the Keystone State with a Friday night visit to the famed Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.

Aaron Reutzel snaps All Star win drought with convincing victory at Plymouth Speedway

PLYMOUTH, Ind. (August 22, 2020) - Scoring his first Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 triumph since Ohio Sprint Speedweek competition at Fremont Speedway on July 5, Clute, Texas’ Aaron Reutel marched his way back to All Star victory lane on Saturday night during a visit to Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Indiana, doing so by commanding the final 32 laps of the 35-lap contest while fending off the likes of three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and NASCAR Hall of Famer, Tony Stewart.

The $5,000 triumph, his third in a row at the northern Indiana bullring, was accomplished from the outside of row one, first surviving a slide job battle with fellow front row starter, Hunter Schuerenberg, only to find himself in a constant mix of slower traffic for the remainder of the 35-lapper.

Despite Schuerenberg’s early attempts, and some hints of pressure from Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, Reutzel maintained in control, now on top of the 2020 All Star championship points battle by 84 markers.

Tony Stewart held on to finish second at Plymouth Speedway, followed by Hunter Schuerenberg, a hard-charging Justin Peck, and Shane Stewart.

“That was the longest I’ve ever gone without winning in the last five or so years. Someone had to draw a map for me to even get down to victory lane,” an excited Aaron Reutzel stated, driver of the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Fischer Body Shop/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Dissolvalloy/No. 87 sprint car. “We’ve had a lot of bad luck. Some of it was self inflicted, some of it not. It’s not from a lack of effort, I can sure tell you that. We try as hard as we can every single night and I think that’s why you see us get frustrated with each other because we are trying so hard."

Despite the initial four circuits consisting of a turn-to-turn battle with pole sitter Hunter Schuerenberg, actually exchanging the lead nearly every corner with Schuerenberg leading laps one and three and Reutzel leading laps two and four, the only other sense of pressure for Reutzel came in the form of Tony Stewart.

Stewart, who started fifth on the feature grid, powered his way to second on lap four, next setting his aim on the tailtank of Aaron Reutzel. The Columbus, Indiana-native kept pace with the two-time and defending All Star champion in traffic initially, but Reutzel’s stride eventually became too much to maintain. By lap 17, Reutzel was beginning to escape through the tail of the field, first utilizing a caution flag on lap ten to build momentum through clean air.

A caution on lap 29 would give Stewart one final chance to sneak by the familiar No. 87, but it was too late.

“Tonight we came in here with some confidence, especially since we haven’t lost here as an All Star,” Reutzel continued. “This is a track that really fits my driving style. It gets wide and the harder you run through the corners, the more speed you can make up. You don’t get that with a lot of tracks. This is definitely a one-of-a-kind racetrack and I really enjoy coming (Plymouth Speedway).”

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their 2020 campaign with a four-pack in the Keystone State, set to visit Grandview Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway, Lincoln Speedway, and Bedford Speedway on Thursday through Sunday, August 27-30, respectively.

Action will continue with a pair of $4,000-to-win main events at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, followed by the $7,300-to-win Kramer Williamson Klash at Lincoln on Saturday. The weekend will conclude with another $5,000-to-win headliner at Bedford on Sunday.

Cory Eliason wins at Wilmot Raceway for second consecutive All Star victory

WILMOT, Wis. (August 21, 2020) - For the second time in as many starts, Visalia, California’s Cory Eliason is an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, accomplishing his feat during All Star/IRA Outlaw Sprint Series co-sanctioned action at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin, on Friday evening, August 21. Impressive, nonetheless, leading 21 circuits of the 30-lap contest while maneuvering through wave after wave of slower traffic, the 2020 All Star championship hopeful was forced to manhandle an ill-handling car, as ignition trouble kept the Rudeen Racing powerplant from reaching full potential.

Despite the loss of horsepower, Eliason held strong, ultimately holding off advancements by Ian Madsen, Hunter Schuerenberg and Tyler Courtney during a pair of green-white-checkered restarts. The Wilmot Raceway victory, Eliason’s first with the Series at the southern Wisconsin short track, was accompanied by a $5,000 top prize.

“This just goes to show how hard these guys work back at the shop,” Cory Eliason said in victory lane, driver of the Rudeen Racing/Hager Realty/Rayce Rudeen Foundation/Rudeen Management/No. 26 sprint car. “It was an eventful few weeks for us with all the racing at Knoxville, but it was nice to come to a place like Wilmot and run at a track that really reminds me of back home in California. I’m not really sure what happened, but by lap three, the motor started to really go flat. Honestly, that may have helped me overall because it didn’t allow for the tires to spin. But regardless, I can’t thank Kevin Rudeen and his family enough for what they do for this race team. I’m sure they were all watching at home tonight.”

Starting third on the feature grid by way of dash result, Eliason’s initial jump proved to be an instant turning point, allowing the driver of the familiar blue No. 26 get around pole sitter Hunter Schuerenberg to secure second by the completion of lap one. At the time, Aurora, Illinois’ Blake Nimee was the main event leader, followed by Eliason, Aaron Reutzel and Schuerenberg.

By lap five, the top three found themselves staring at the back of the field, which was stacking up to be two and three wide and engulfing all lanes of the speedway. The gaggle of slower cars actually proved to be a major benefit for Eliason, who was chipping away at Nimee’s lead in a hurry.

Just four laps later, Eliason was all over Nimee for the top spot, eventually utilizing a slingshot move into corner three to blast around the race leader and a slower car. The move was successful, leaving Nimee in his tracks with Aaron Reutzel and Ian Madsen in tow.

With a caution on lap 15 making way for a clear track and clean air, Eliason’s campaign at the front of the field was relatively uneventful during the middle segment of the main event, that until caution flags reappeared with only two laps remaining, brought about by two-time All Star Circuit of Champions champion and current point leader, Aaron Reutzel, who did a 360-degree spin while battling in the fourth position.

The ensuing restart was only a tease, as Tyler Courtney, who had battled his way from tenth to second, and looked strong enough to challenge Eliason for top honors, spun to a stop in turn one collecting a handful of other competitors. Contact between Ian Madsen’s front bumper and Courtney’s rear bumper ignited the small pileup.

Despite the pause, and a sour engine, Eliason held tough on the following restart, keeping Ian Madsen, Hunter Schuerenberg, Zeb Wise, and Gerard McIntyre at bay.

All Stars to visit Wilmot and Plymouth on August 21-22

Fremont’s Jim & Joanne Ford Classic returns to All Star sanction in 2020

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (8/9/20) - With a two-week break in the schedule to allow full-time teams the opportunity to participate in previously scheduled marquee events at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will return to competition on Friday and Saturday, August 21-22, with a two-day trek through Wisconsin and Indiana. America’s Series was originally slated to visit I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan, during the respective weekend, but the visit to Wilmot has replaced I-96 Speedway on the schedule.

The traveling All Stars will kick-off the weekend with another head-to-head battle with the finest of the Bumper-to-Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series, this time invading the Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin, on Friday evening, August 21. The All Stars and IRA last flexed their muscles in the Badger State during the second-ever Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race at Plymouth Dirt Track on Thursday, July 30. Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson was the victor, earning a $26,000 payday in the process.

Leading the IRA charge in defending home dirt against the invading All Stars is multi-time IRA champion and six-time winner in 2020, Bill Balog. The ‘North Pole Nightmare’ is also the most recent IRA competitor to win at Wilmot Raceway, scoring his sixth Series victory of the season last evening, Saturday, August 8, over Russel Borland, Mike Reinke, Jeremy Schultz, and Scott Biertzer.

The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their weekend campaign with a Saturday night visit to Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Indiana, on August 22. Two-time and defending All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel, is the defending Plymouth Speedway feature winner, scoring a $5,000 top prize in 2019 over Brock Zearfoss and fellow former two-time champion, Greg Wilson.

For the first time since 2015, the All Star Circuit of Champions will sanction Fremont Speedway’s Jim and Joanne Ford Classic, set to headline action at ‘The Track That Action Built’ on Friday and Saturday, October 9-10. The two-day All Star season finale, also featuring the FAST Series, will award a total weekend winner’s share equaling $15,000; $5,000 during the Friday night preliminary and $10,000 during the Saturday night finale. The ‘Kunkletown Kid’ Ryan Smith, a former full-time All Star who has since turned his attention back to weekly action in Central Pennsylvania, is the last to win the Jim Ford Classic under the All Star banner, scoring the $10,000 victory on September 19, 2015.

Clute, Texas’ Aaron Reutzel is currently on top of the All Star Circuit of Champions points battle heading into the back half of the schedule. The two-time champ owns seven victories on the season, last working his way to victory lane during a stop at Fremont Speedway on Sunday, July 5.

Cory Eliason, the recent Huset’s Speedway Grand Re-Opening winner worth $20,000 on Sunday, August 2, is second the All Star title chase, followed by Paul McMahan, leading Rookie of the Year contender, Zeb Wise, and Odessa, Texas-native, Josh Baughman.

Those seeking additional information pertaining to the events at Wilmot Raceway and Plymouth Speedway should visit each of the respective tracks online at www.wilmotraceway.com and www.plymouthspeedway.net.

Additional news and notes pertaining to the Jim and Joanne Ford Classic will be released in the coming weeks. In the meantime, fans can learn more about Fremont Speedway online at www.fremontohspeedway.com.

Cory Eliason scores $20,000 Huset’s Grand Re-Opening for first All Star win of 2020

BRANDON, S.D. (August 2, 2020) - For the first time in 2020, Visalia, California’s Cory Eliason is an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so in fantastic fashion during Huset’s Speedway’s Grand Re-Opening on Sunday evening, August 2. Forced to outduel the ‘Madman’ Kerry Madsen, as well as fend off late charges by Dominic Scelzi and Ian Madsen, Eliason’s triumph was accomplished in front of a capacity crowd at the Brandon, South Dakota venue, securing $20,000 in the process and now within 92 points of the Series championship lead.

“This place is badass,” an elated Cory Eliason said in Huset’s Speedway victory lane, driver of the Rudeen Racing/Hagar Reality/Rayce Rudeen Foundation/No. 26 sprint car. “This is probably the best crowd that I’ve seen this season and it’s incredible. Thank you all for coming out and supporting this race.”

Starting from the outside-pole position, Eliason followed Kerry Madsen for the first 11 circuits, not imposing a real threat until the frontrunners reached traffic for the first time on lap nine. By lap 12, Eliason was in position to pounce, taking advantage of Madsen’s brush with the turn four wall to drive by the Killer Instinct Crossbows No. 2M to lead the circuit.

Despite near-devastating contact, Kerry Madsen persevered, getting back by Dominic Scelzi on lap 16, who followed Eliason by the No. 2M, before executing a perfect slider to drive by Eliason in turn four on lap 17.

Madsen’s pace through traffic eventually dwindled allowing Eliason to close-in on the ‘Madman’ once again. Utilizing the very topside of the speedway, Eliason was back within striking distance on lap 19, using the next four circuits to build enough momentum to make another bid for the lead. On lap 23, Eliason was back in control, driving right around Madsen who tried to hug the bottom of turns three and four. Dominic Scelzi mimicked Eliason’s move and also drove by Madsen.

“This place definitely reminds me of Tulare and Chico back home,” Cory Eliason continued. “I was concerned when Kerry got to the front that it was going to be game over for us, but lapped traffic came into play and it really helped us out. We had a really nice race car tonight. I can’t thank everyone enough who helps us out. Kevin Rudeen is here tonight so it’s special to get a win with him and the team.”

Kerry Madsen held on to finish third at Huset’s Speedway, followed by a hard charging Ian Madsen and Rico Abreu.

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will enjoy two weekends away from action before returning to competition on Friday evening, August 21, at the I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan. The two week break will allow full-time All Star Circuit of Champions competitors the opportunity to return to Knoxville Raceway for 360 and 410 action on August 6-8 and August 13-15, respectively.

Kyle Larson sets All Star consecutive win record with seventh victory at Knoxville Raceway

By Bill W.

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 1, 2020) - Kyle Larson won his seventh straight Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 feature on Saturay night, setting a record with the series. The victory came at the Knoxville Raceway, where the Elk Grove, California-native swept the World of Outlaws weekend in June. Larson earned $5,000 for the win aboard the Paul Silva wrenched #57, and even lost a contact lens along the way.

The 25-lap feature was slow to get started. On the first try, Kasey Kahne got above the turn two cushion and slowed near the wall. Aaron Reutzel did the same on the bottom of turn one. Both visited the work area and returned to action.

The second try at green was no better. AJ Moeller broke his front end after contact with another car in turn two and slid down in front of the field. Fortunately, he didn’t turn over, or collect anyone.

Once green, it was for good, and Gio Scelzi took the early advantage ahead of Lynton Jeffrey and Larson. Brian Brown passed Kerry Madsen for fourth on lap two. Larson sized up Jeffrey, and took third on the third circuit.

Rico Abreu, who started thirteenth, shot from seventh to fifth on lap five. Brown claimed third from Jeffrey on the same lap. Abreu followed him into fourth a lap later.

Up front, Larson was gaining on Scelzi, and slid across turn four to take the point on lap eight. He was in lapped traffic a lap later, and by lap 12, had a straightaway lead. Brown and Scelzi see-sawed back and forth in a battle for second that saw three passes for that position until Brown claimed the spot with ten to go.

Abreu captured third from Scelzi and passed Brown in lapped traffic on lap 16. Larson’s lead over the three-way battle for second was over seven seconds by lap 19. Scelzi and Brown would return to battle, this time for the third spot, in the late stages.

Larson won convincingly over Abreu, Scelzi, who gained third on the last lap, Brown and Shane Stewart. Kerry Madsen, Cory Eliason, Davey Heskin, Ian Madsen and Josh Schneiderman rounded out the top ten. Larson posted quick time over the 46-car field. Heskin, Brown, Schneiderman, Hunter Schuerenberg and Moeller were heat winners. Scelzi and Jeffrey won the Dashes, Ayrton Gennetten won the C main, and Aaron Reutzel claimed the B main.

“It’s really cool,” said Larson of his record breaking seventh win in a row. It was his sixth career win at Knoxville. “I did read that earlier today, and it added pressure to tonight. Qualifying well is important in every format you run. It was a good solid night You could get that diamond going in one and two a lot. Even late, I could make time following the top all around. I lost a contact, so I couldn’t see as well as I needed to, but my car was just good and I had some lines working for me. I could make runs off of two and then slide them in three and four. The contact made it difficult. I hope I have a spare set in my bathroom bag!”

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will conclude their four-race stretch through the Midwest with a visit to the Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, on Sunday evening, August 2.

Kyle Larson celebrates birthday at 34 Raceway and secures 12th All Star victory of 2020

WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa (July 31, 2020) - Celebrating his 28th birthday in a big way, Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson conquered Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 competition yet again, this time during a Friday night visit to 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa. The victory, Larson’s 12th of the season with the traveling All Stars, as well as the 21st of his career during Series competition, was accomplished from the outside of the second row, eventually tracking down race leader and evening pole sitter, Cory Eliason, just before the midpoint of the 30-lap program.

Larson’s trek to the front commenced right from the drop of the green. After powering into third on the opening lap, Larson utilized a pair of cautions, a red flag incident on lap four, followed by another slow down on lap seven, to keep the top-two in check, ultimately sneaking around Austin McCarl for second following the lap seven restart. Meanwhile, Cory Eliason was the man in charge, doing his best to run away in clean air.

Although Eliason’s pace seemed untouchable, lapped traffic created an instant roadblock for the Visalia, California-native giving Larson the chance to close the gap in a hurry. By lap 12, the lead pair were engulfed in slower cars. They raced nearly nose-to-tail throughout the twelfth circuit before Larson made his winning move the following trip around 34 Raceway. A slingshot move through turns three and four sealed the deal allowing Larson to drive by the Rudeen Racing No. 26.

Periods of even heavier traffic did allow Eliason to keep pace with the leader, but Larson’s move to put Zeb Wise a lap down on lap 16 ignited a feeding frenzy for the 2020 USAC Indiana Midget Week and 2020 PA Sprint Speedweek champion. By the time the final checkers were shown, Larson’s advantage stretched to just shy of five seconds. Eliason held on to finish second, followed by Tucker Klaasmeyer, Austin McCarl and Gio Scelzi.

“After that second restart, I knew that I had to try something to get around (Cory Eliason). I knew the top was there, so I just started hammering away at it,” Kyle Larson said in 34 Raceway victory lane, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/Tarlton and Sons/Durst/Lucas Oil/Priority Aviation/No. 57 sprint car. “I think he heard me because I noticed he was trying to make himself wide to kinda screw up my momentum, but we were able to get by. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the weekend.”

Kyle Larson's All Star Circuit of Champions win streak now stands at seven, six occurring in consecutive fashion since winning Sharon Speedway's Salute to the Troops program on Sunday, July 12.

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will venture further west into the Hawkeye State and pay a visit to the Sprint Car Capital of the World. Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, will host America’s Series on Saturday evening, August 1. The one-night showstopper will award a $5,000 top prize.

Kyle Larson pads All Star Circuit of Champions win streak with $26,000 Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race victory​

PLYMOUTH, Wis. (July 30, 2020) - For the 11th time in 2020, and for the sixth time in as many tries, Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson is an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so in convincing fashion at the Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wisconsin, on Thursday evening, July 30. Scoring a monstrous $26,000 payday in the process, Larson’s Plymouth victory occurred during the second running of the Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race, eventually topping a stout field of not only traveling All Stars, but also full-time IRA Outlaw Sprint Series contenders, and a handful of regional and national invaders.

Forced to navigate slower traffic for much of his campaign around the Plymouth bullring, Larson was quick to prove he was the class of the field, utilizing the outside-pole position to hunt down pole sitter and race leader, Gio Scelzi, by lap 12, eventually running away to a near-two and a half second advantage by the end of 35 circuits.

“This feels really good,” Kyle Larson said, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/Tarlton and Sons/Durst/Lucas Oil/Priority Aviation/No. 57 sprint car. “I had to earn it, for sure. The track was extremely technical and the curb wasn’t going anywhere. It made it trickier and trickier to run. The lappers were all so even with each other and I couldn’t get by some of them for such a long time. I really wasn’t sure how close second was to me, but once I got by some lapped cars, I was able to get a good rhythm going. This is such an awesome crowd. A big thanks to Kevin Rudeen and his entire family for what they do for this event. It’s not often that you get to race for this much money in a sprint car.”

After a pair of cautions during the initial start, one of which a red flag incident involving Austin McCarl, the third try proved to be the charm with KCP Racing’s Gio Scelzi earning the jump. The California hotshoe would lead the first six laps unscathed before entering traffic for the first time on lap seven.
The back of the field, mixed with an unforgiving cushion, proved to be a handful for Scelzi, as Larson quickly ran down the familiar No. 18 and was applying pressure by lap ten. Just two circuits later, it was Larson who was in control of the field, using a sleek move through the bottom of turns three and four to drive underneath Scelzi to lead lap 12.

By lap 17, the ‘Madman’ Kerry Madsen was the new man in charge of the runner-up position, wasting little effort to get by Scelzi before turning his attention to Larson. Despite a desperate effort by the Australia-native, Larson proved to be too much to overcome in traffic, solidifying his place in Plymouth Dirt Track victory lane with a three-wide move to put two lapped cars between himself and Madsen’s No. 2M.

“I don’t think I could have went many more laps,” Larson continued. “I was happy to see the checkers come out.”

At one point, Madsen was in striking distance, eradicating all lapped cars between himself and the race leader just beyond the midpoint of the 35-lap contest. Although unable to catch ‘Yung Money,’ Madsen held on to finish second, followed by Gio Scelzi, Dominic Scelzi and Cory Eliason

“During the middle stages there, things were really looking good for us,” Kerry Madsen said, driver of the Killer Instinct Crossbows No. 2M. “I didn’t force it with lapped cars probably like I should have. We had a great race car and the guys are working hard. I want to get some ‘W’s’ for this team. We have a long weekend ahead so hopefully we can climb our way to the top.”

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their four-race stretch with a visit to 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, on Friday evening, July 31. The evening’s main event will award a $5,000 top prize.

Kyle Larson caps Port Royal Speedway visit with Bob Weikert Memorial finale win; Weekend sweep worth $25,000

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (July 19, 2020) - Officially bumping his 2020 Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 win total into the double digits, Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson did almost the impossible on Sunday night at Port Royal Speedway and conquered not only the All Stars and Pennsylvania Posse, but also a stout contingent of full-time World of Outlaws competitors, solidifying his Bob Weikert Memorial sweep. The Sunday night triumph not only awarded a $10,000 top prize, but it also awarded a $5,000 bonus; an extra for earning the overall Bob Weikert Memorial championship.

Larson is undefeated in his last five All Star Circuit of Champions tries, now with ten total victories in 16 Series starts.

“My car was really good again tonight. Hats off to Paul Silva and everyone else that helps make this all possible,” Kyle Larson said in victory lane, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/Tarlton and Sons/Durst/Lucas Oil/Priority Aviation/No. 57 sprint car. “We had a string of races where we just missed getting the wins and got beat late. It was starting to stress me out, to be honest, but now we’re winning again. Hopefully we can keep it up, especially with some bigger races coming up.”

Starting sixth on the 30-lap grid by virtue of a top-ten redraw, Larson worked his way forward in a hurry, climbing his way to fourth by lap two before driving his way to third just two circuits later. With momentum a clear benefactor, the 2020 PA Sprint Speedweek champion caught the top-two by lap nine, flirting with the outer edge to reel-in two-time All Star champion and current Series point leader, Aaron Reutzel, and race leader, Carson Macedo.

By the completion of lap 10, Larson was the new man in charge, driving by Reutzel and Macedo in the same corner before beating the pair in the drag race back to the flagstand. Larson actually attempted the two-for-one move in turns one and two, but the pair denied his attempt, leaving the door open for another try in turns three and four.

Despite a seemingly effortless charge to the front, Larson was far from in the clear, as Reutzel kept pace with the No. 57, especially after a run-in with slower traffic beginning on lap 16. Lapped traffic only intensified and became an obvious problem by lap 22, allowing Reutzel to close-in and show his nose. A saving grace, so to speak, caution flags would wave for the second time on lap 23 negating any potential move by Reutzel in traffic.

Two final cautions, one on lap 25, an eventual fuel stop, and another on lap 28, would keep Larson in clean air the remaining distance. Even Lance Dewease, a 113-time winner at the Port Royal ‘Speed Palace’ who moved into second just after the restart on lap 23, proved to be no threat to ‘Yung Money.’

“I was honestly a little worried the whole race,” Larson continued. “Reutzel was running really hard the first ten laps, but I felt like I was really good behind him, especially getting through turns three and four. I wasn’t sure how close he would be to me once I got out front, but I felt like I hit my marks good enough that he wouldn’t be able to get back by me. Then when Lance (Dewease) got behind me, I figured he was running a completely different line than I was. I knew if I could just keep my line and not hit the curb too hard, and as long as I didn’t see his nose, I would be ok.”

Lance Dewease held on to finish second, followed by Anthony Macri, Danny Dietrich and Jacob Allen. Aaron Reutzel was forced to retire early due to suspension damage.

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will enjoy a weekend away from competition before returning to the road on Thursday, July 30, with a visit to Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wisconsin. The second-ever Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race will be the main attraction awarding a hefty $26,000 payday. The Plymouth visit will also activate a four-race sweep for the traveling All Stars which will continue with appearances at 34 Raceway, Knoxville Raceway and Huset’s Speedway, respectively.

Kyle Larson continues All Star winning streak with Bob Weikert Memorial opening night win at Port Royal Speedway

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (July 18, 2020) - Kyle Larson’s weekend in the Keystone State has been prosperous, to say the least, first claiming the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, July 17, then topping that prestigious open wheel triumph with a $10,000 victory during night one of Port Royal Speedway’s annual Bob Weikert Memorial featuring the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1.

Larson, who now owns a Series-leading nine All Star Circuit of Champions victories in 2020, started seventh on the Bob Weikert Memorial grid and rallied in a hurry, climbing his way to third just after a single-file restart with only ten laps checked off the counter, then taking second from former track champion, Logan Wagner, at the midpoint of the 30-lap program. At the time, Brent Marks was in charge of the top spot, using his outside-front row starting spot to garner the lead during the initial start.

With traffic acting as a moving roadblock, Larson was able to track down the leader by lap 17, racing to the back bumper of the CJB Motorsports entry before challenging Marks for the top spot two circuits later. An eventual drag race to the flagstand ended in Marks’ favor.

Beat by a nose at the line, Larson redeemed himself the following circuit and made the next move count, eventually slingshotting around Marks at the exit of turn four, narrowly squeezing by the former Outlaw and a lapped car while navigating the very topside of the speedway. The bold move was the winning move for the Elk Grove, California-native, gradually escaping to a lengthy advantage before the final checkers made their appearance.

The All Star victory was Larson’s fourth in four consecutive tries.

“It’s definitely an honor to win this race. Over the last few weeks, I’ve had a lot of people compare this run that we’re on to Doug Wolfgang. I never got the chance to watch him race, but I knew he was a legend. To read about all of his wins, and the places that he won at, is pretty unbelievable,” Kyle Larson said in victory lane, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/Tarlton and Sons/Durst/Lucas Oil/Glenn Styres Racing/Priority Aviation/No. 57 sprint car. “Port Royal is starting to become one of my favorite tracks. And the atmosphere here is right up there with the Knoxville Nationals. We still have one more night to go, so hopefully we can park back up here in victory lane.”

Brent Marks held on to finish second at Port Royal Speedway, followed by Anthony Macri, Logan Wagner and Lance Dewease.

“My car was really, really good,” Larson continued. “I saw Brent (Marks) and Logan (Wagner) battling right before the last caution and I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to get by them. Thankfully, Logan was kinda searching for grip which allowed me to gain some momentum on the top and get around him. Then I was able to track Brent down in traffic. I could run about 80-90% and still take care of my tires. The last time I won here, my tires were pretty beat up because I was spinning them so bad. Tonight I just focused on trying to keep my wheel spin down. I’m glad it paid off.”

What’s Next:
Tony Stewart’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will conclude their trek through Central Pennsylvania with night two of the annual Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway on Sunday, July 19. In addition to a $10,000 top prize, an overall Bob Weikert Memorial champion will be crowned with an additional $5,000 on the line.

Kyle Larson defeats All Stars and Posse for Tommy Hinnershitz Classic victory

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (July 17, 2020) - Forced to track down one of Pennsylvania’s finest, Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson continued his open wheel winning ways on Friday night during a visit to the world-famous Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, this time claiming the annual Tommy Hinnershitz Classic for a $5,000 payday over a stacked field of Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1, World of Outlaws and Pennsylvania Posse competitors.

Larson’s route to Williams Grove Speedway victory lane did not come easy, as the now eight-time Series winner in 2020 did not take command for the first time until lap 27, ultimately using lapped traffic within the final five circuits to hunt down race-long leader Anthony Macri before driving around the familiar No. 39M between turns three and four on lap 27. Certainly no stranger to the Williams Grove half-mile, Larson put himself in striking distance on lap 22, utilizing momentum and a diving move across the bottom of turn three to take second away from Kerry Madsen.

Macri, who led from the drop of the green before losing command to Larson, held on to finish second in the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic main event, followed by Kerry Madsen, David Gravel and Daryn Pittman.

“This is pretty cool. Anytime you can win over a field like this is pretty special, especially at Williams Grove Speedway,” Kyle Larson said, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/Tarlton and Sons/Durst/Lucas Oil/No. 57 sprint car. “I thought we were pretty good all night. Once we got to halfway, I knew it was time to pick it up a little bit if we wanted to be there at the end. I was able to carry a lot of speed through the corners and that really helped us out, even when we got into some traffic. Paul Silva does a pretty awesome job getting these cars to drive to well. Hopefully we can keep this going.”

Before Larson made his presence known, Macri was forced to deal with Kerry Madsen. Madsen, aboard the Killer Instinct Crossbows No. 2M, got away second after the initial start and maintained a steady distance from Macri until the frontrunners found traffic for the first time on lap eight. Forced to check up and lose momentum, Madsen took advantage and gained ground on Macri, eventually racing himself to a car length by the completion of lap nine.

Even after a caution on lap 16, which allowed Macri to restart with a clear track and clean air ahead, Madsen kept himself in contention, actually trying to slide Macri on lap 17, and again on lap 19. Although both attempts failed, the slider exchanges allowed Larson to enter the picture by lap 22.

With eight Series victories thus far in 2020, Kyle Larson is now on top of the wins leaderboard. Two-time and defending All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel, is second with seven.

What’s Next:
Tony Stewart’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their trek through the Keystone State with a doubleheader at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania, on Saturday and Sunday, July 18-19. Dubbed the Bob Weikert Memorial, the two-day program will award back-to-back $10,000 top prizes with a $5,000 bonus to the overall weekend champion; the driver with the highest average finish, but one of the two finishes must be a victory.

All Star Circuit of Champions to headline $20,000-to-win Huset’s Speedway Grand Reopening on Sunday, August 2

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 14, 2020) - Set idle in the foothills of Brandon, South Dakota, no longer, the legendary highbanks of Huset’s Speedway will officially kick on the light switches in 2020 and will celebrate a grand reopening featuring the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 on Sunday, August 2. A surefire showstopper in itself, the C&B Operations presents the Huset’s Grand Reopening, with some added help from Folkens Brothers Trucking, will award a $20,000 top prize, while also awarding a minimum of $1,000 to each main event starter.

Effective immediately, Tod Quiring is now the new owner of Huset’s Speedway and he will help propel the state-of-the-art facility back into the All Star scene for the first time since 2014. St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu is the most recent competitor to find victory lane at ‘the official race track of summer,’ taking command on lap 12 and never looking back.

In total, the traveling All Stars have made 14 appearances at the southeast South Dakota venue with the ‘Steel City Outlaw’ Tim Shaffer owning the most success with three victories. Remodeled in 2015, Huset’s Speedway was purchased and operated under the name Badlands Motor Speedway before closing its doors in 2018.

The Brandon visit adds a fourth date to the already established mid-summer Midwest swing for the All Star Circuit of Champions. The Series will visit Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Wisconsin, for the $26,000-to-win Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race on Thursday, July 30, followed by stops to 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, on Friday, July 31, and Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, August 1. All events considered, All Star Circuit of Champions competitors will battle for a total weekend winner’s share equaling $56,000.

In addition to an elite group of full-time All Star Circuit of Champions competitors including two-time and defending Series champion, Aaron Reutzel, three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee, Tony Stewart, will join-in on the action at Huset’s Speedway, as well as the 2020 Indiana Midget Week and Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek champion, Kyle Larson.

“We are honored to be a part of the grand re-opening of Huset’s Speedway,” said Tony Stewart, owner of the All Stars. “There have been rumors swirling around this facility for years and it’s pretty cool to know that there will be sprint cars back in just a few weeks. It’s obviously one of the nicest facilities in the world. Thank you to Tod and Doug for their hard work putting this together and for the call to be a part of it. What a weekend. We start in Plymouth (WI) on Thursday with the annual Rayce Rudeen Foundation race, continue to 34 Raceway on Friday, Knoxville Saturday and Huset’s Sunday. We can’t wait.”

Additional news and notes pertaining to the C&B Operations presents the Huset’s Grand Reopening will be posted in the near-future. Fans are encouraged to stay alert online for continuing details. For those who can not make the journey to Brandon, South Dakota, FloRacing, the official media partner of the All Star Circuit of Champions, will be on hand to capture a live broadcast.

Kyle Larson claims Sharon’s Salute to the Troops Speedweek finale; Aaron Reutzel wins 2020 Ohio Sprint Speedweek championship

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 13, 2020) - For the third time during Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires, and for the seventh time in 2020, Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson is an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so during Justin Snyder’s Salute to the Troops Speedweek finale at Sharon Speedway on Sunday, July 12. ‘Yung Money’ led the final 21 circuits to claim the $6,000 payday, eventually holding off a late surge by two-time and defending All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel.

Skylar Gee, who started from the pole position after winning the first of two All Star dashes, led the first several circuits of the 30-lap contest before losing command to the familiar No. 57. Hard contact with the outside retaining wall just before the flagstand on lap nine resulted in a flat right-rear tire forcing the Leduc, Alberta, Canada-native to retire, ultimately allowing Larson to inherit the top spot. At the time, Reutzel was battling in the third position, followed by Cory Eliason and Dave Blaney.

Restarting on the point, Larson shot out of a cannon, driving off on a very narrow cushion with Reutzel and Eliason still in tow. Although a caution on lap 16 would stack the field and keep Larson in clean air and out of traffic longer, Reutzel eventually chipped away at Larson’s near-two second advantage and powered within just a few car lengths, utilizing a wall tap by Larson on lap 27 and a three-wide pack of lappers to his advantage. A last minute slider by Larson on lap 29 to put a lapped car between himself and Reutzel sealed the deal for the Paul Silva-owned entry.

“I hit the wall and kinda got stuck in it, so I figured I was going to get a flat tire or something. I was just trying to stay calm. I guess I lost focus a little bit right there,” Kyle Larson said of his brush with the wall, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Durst/Lucas Oil/Tarlton and Sons/No. 57 sprint car. “I knew Aaron (Reutzel) was probably running pretty hard behind me. I didn’t know where he was, but I figured he was going to be right there. I felt like I hadn’t made any mistakes up until that point, but you never know where they’re at.

“This place is awesome,” Larson continued. “Especially when it gets glass slick to the fence. I thought I could maybe shortcut three and four, but I wasn’t as good as what Skylar (Gee) was up against the wall. Once I got the lead, I knew I needed to commit up there as long as I didn’t see Aaron poke to my inside. I never really saw his nose other than that restart.

“I really enjoy coming to Ohio and running Ohio Speedweek. A big thanks to all of the fans for coming out and supporting your local dirt track racing.”

Reutzel held on to finish second on Sunday evening, solidifying a first-ever Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires speedweek championship. The overall Speedweek title earned the two-time All Star champion and Clute, Texas-native a $4,000 payday.

“We’ve been consistent, so we’ve definitely accomplished that, but I feel like we need to get back on the winning part. If we keep doing what we are doing, the wins will come. Or if we can get Kyle (Larson) to go away, the wins will come. He’s just unreal.” Aaron Reutzel said, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Fischer Body Shop/Hollywood Coating and Blasting/Folkens Brothers Trucking/No. 87 sprint car. “To watch him run that close to the wall and make contact and keep going is just crazy. I think I needed a caution-free run and additional traffic if I was going to get by Larson. I think I was a little better than he was in those long runs.

“A big thanks to everyone who came out. It was a fun week, but we still have more work to do.”

Cale Conley wins Lou Blaney Memorial for first-ever All Star victory

HARTFORD, Ohio (July 12, 2020) - Officially etching his name into the Series’ history book, Vienna, West Virginia’s Cale Conley is now an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, accomplishing his storied feat during Lou Blaney Memorial competition at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, on Saturday, July 11. The win, Conley’s seventh top-ten finish of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires, was worth $7,500.

Although forced to withstand pressure from the likes of Rico Abreu, Brock Zearfoss and Cory Eliason during the 30-lap contest, Conley would prevail, eventually leading every lap while remaining patient on an ultra-quick and choppy surface that proved relentless for much of the field. In total, eight caution periods were recorded inducing three red flag stoppages, one for fuel on lap 19.

Conley’s campaign at the front of the field commenced right from the drop of the initial green, getting the early jump over fellow front row starter, Brock Zearfoss, as well as Rico Abreu and Gerard McIntyre. It would not take long for the leaders to reach the back of the field, already getting trapped behind slower cars on lap four. A caution on lap five, and again on lap six, would prove to save the day for Conley, negating any chance for a battle in traffic on a narrow groove.

A similar situation would arise on lap 11, and again on lap 18, as cautions would end the potential for a battle among slower cars. Still in command, Conley’s biggest threat occurred after a red flag incident on lap 26, ultimately giving St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu and Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason an opportunity to pounce with only five circuits remaining. Fortunately for Conley, a battle between Eliason and Abreu would break out allowing the West Virginian to escape unscathed in clean air.

Eliason would get by Abreu to secure second on the final circuit, followed by Abreu, Tim Shaffer and a hard-charging Danny Dietrich, who advanced 12 spots to finish fifth.

Brock Zearfoss, who was racing in the runner-up spot at the time, was the reason for the red flag stoppage on lap 26, as right-front suspension damage caused the familiar No. 3Z to dig itself in and end up upside-down in turn two; Zearfoss walked away from the incident.

“That was a long race,” Conely said out of breath in Sharon Speedway victory lane, driver of the Ravici Racing No. 3C. “It was hot out there and I was just ready to see the laps wind down. It took us a while, but I’m so happy to win here during the Lou Blaney Memorial. It’s such a special night for my wife’s family. Our little boy’s name is Louie, so this is really cool. To get my first All Star win in front of such an awesome crowd is cool. I was just asking God on those restarts to help me focus because I had some really good guys behind me. I was just trying to hang on for dear life.

“This race car was so good, and it’s the first night out for this car; it’s a brand new car,” Conley continued, who is married to the granddaughter of Lou Blaney, Dave Blaney’s daughter, Emma. “We tore one up last night at Portsmouth, so we had to put together a whole new car. That just goes to show how lucky I am to get to work with Brian Kemenah. This is just unreal. Brian always finds ways to make my job really easy. I really can’t show how appreciative I really am.”

Kyle Larson scores Dean Knittel Memorial payday at Portsmouth Raceway Park

PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (July 11, 2020) - ‘Yung Money’ Kyle Larson was certainly ‘money’ on Friday night during the annual Dean Knittel Memorial at Portsmouth Raceway Park, not only scoring his second Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires main event win in four tries, but the Elk Grove, California-native secured $15,554 in the process, simultaneously bumping his 2020 Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 season win count to six.

Starting from the pole position by way of dash result, Larson was nearly untouchable during the 30-lap contest, escaping to a hefty advantage right from the drop of the green flag. The driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Tarlton and Sons/Lucas Oil/Durst/Finley Farms/No. 57 sprint car reached slower cars by lap five, and although a few near-close calls with lapped traffic may have forced Larson to tap the brake pedal, his momentum never shifted, still placing two to three lapped cars between himself and second-place running Aaron Reutzel.

The main event’s first and only caution, occurring with five laps remaining, did give Reutzel an opportunity to restart on the back bumper of Larson, but it did not matter. The Clute, Texas-native was forced to settle for second, followed by Brock Zearfoss, Shane Stewart, and Cole Duncan.

With all bonuses considered, Kyle Larson collected upwards of $18,000 at Portsmouth, as extra money was awarded for his respective dash victory, as well as his overall fast time during qualifying time trials and for leading lap 15 during the 30-lap feature.

“It doesn’t matter what kind of pace you set, Aaron (Reutzel) seems to find a way to match what you’re doing, so I was trying to go as hard as I could,” Kyle Larson said in Portsmouth victory lane. “It was good to hold on and get another big payday.

“I was hoping we weren’t going to catch traffic again, but we ended up reaching the back anyhow,” Larson said of his restart with five laps remaining. “But what makes these cars fun is that we don’t have mirrors, so it makes you a little nervous of what’s going on behind you. Just another great race car. And thanks to all of you who help out on this car. We certainly couldn’t do it without each and every one of you. And thanks to all of you fans. This place is really neat and I’m glad I got the chance to race here.”

Rico Abreu goes wire-to-wire at Muskingum County Speedway for first All Star victory of 2020​

DRESDEN, Ohio (July 9, 2020) - Snapping an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 winless streak that dates back to Atomic Speedway on August 25, 2017, St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu demolished the field on Thursday evening at Muskingum County Speedway, eventually leading all 30 circuits from the pole position to score night six of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires.

Abreu, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Lucas Oil Products/Curb Records/Self Made Racing/Dancer Logistics/No. 24 sprint car, was just shy of perfect during his visit to the Dresden, Ohio, highbanks with his only defeat during the entire program coming in the form of a runner-up performance during his respective heat race. The now eight-time All Star Circuit of Champions feature winner, two of which occurring during Ohio Sprint Speedweek, set the fastest qualifying time in his respective group of qualifiers, and won the first of two dashes, ultimately setting up his pole position.

Eventually escaping to a comfortable margin of victory that reached nearly a full straightaway, Abreu did encounter some pressure during the non-stop 30-lap contest, most of which in the form of lapped traffic. Although reaching slower cars by lap seven, it was not until lap 12 when things started to really bunch up in front of the familiar No. 24. The high speed roadblock allowed fellow frontrunners Aaron Reutzel and Shane Stewart to close the lead gap, all within just a few car lengths by lap 15.

Although intense for a moment, the pressure faded just as rapidly as it started, as Abreu was able to patiently navigate slower cars and padd his lead to a pair of lappers by lap 22.

“Patience was keen there when we got to lapped traffic. You got guys like Aaron Reutzel, Shane Stewart, Kyle Larson behind you; you gotta really hustle it,” an elated Rico Abreu said in victory lane. “My car had a really good right rear squeeze to it, so I could carry a lot of momentum to the center of the corner then just kinda back everything up getting off. My guys did a phenomenal job. They worked all night long and made little tweaks every time we got off of the track. It’s all based on communication with them and making sure you’re giving them the right feedback. I feel like we hit all of our steps tonight.

“A big thanks to all of the fans for coming out tonight. It’s a Thursday night, so it’s great to see a healthy crowd. I’m looking forward to racing the rest of the week with the All Stars. It’s a lot of fun getting to race with them.”

Shane Stewart worked his way around Aaron Reutzel to claim second with two laps remaining. Reutzel, the current Ohio Sprint Speedweek points leader, maintained third at the final checkers, followed by Kyle Larson and Josh Baughman.

What’s Next: Tony Stewart’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue the 2020 edition of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires with a visit to Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio.

Kyle Larson scores Ohio Sprint Speedweek victory at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex

PEEBLES, Ohio (July 8, 2020) - Forced to settle with a hard charging performance at Wayne County Speedway after getting involved in a tangle during his respective heat race, ultimately rallying from 21st to sixth in 30 green flag laps, Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson bounced back on Wednesday night at Brushcreek Motorsports Park and leveled the field during night five of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires, eventually leading 26 laps to claim a 14th-career Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory worth $5,000.

Lining up sixth on the main event grid, it was apparent from the start that Larson’s pace was unrivaled, utilizing his initial jump to climb three spots before crossing by the flagstand for the first time. By lap three, ‘Yung Money’ was powering by Eliason for second, next setting his aim on Vienna, West Virginia’s Cale Conley. Just two circuits later, Larson was in command, sneaking under Conley’s No. 3C as the pair raced through turns one and two.

From that point forward, it was all Kyle Larson at the top of the charts, easily navigating through traffic before escaping to a near-five second advantage at the end of 30 non-stop laps.

“I watched a little bit of video, but that was it,” said first-time Brushcreek competitor, Kyle Larson, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/Tarlton and Sons/Durst/Lucas Oil/No. 57 sprint car. “It was a unique race track, for sure. I don’t think I’ve ever been on a track quite like it.

“My car was really good. I could run where everyone else wasn’t,” Larson continued. “All of the lapped cars were either on the bottom or the top, so I could stay relaxed knowing that I would have a lane open when I got to lapped cars. I started to get a little stressed late in the race. When you’re the leader, you never know where second and third place are. I knew (Reutzel) and (Abreu) would be there somewhere. There were some lappers that showed me their nose on the bottom. You just have to focus on what’s ahead and keep moving forward.”

Rico Abreu made a late charge to finish second at Brushcreek Motorsports Park, followed by two-time and defending All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel, Cale Conley, and polesitter, Cory Eliason. Abreu faded as far back as fifth before making the surge to second in the final two circuits.

Cap Henry claims Duffy Smith Memorial at Wayne County for second win of 2020 Ohio Sprint Speedweek

ORRVILLE, Ohio (July 7, 2020) - Becoming the first repeat winner of 2020 Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires featuring the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1, Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry found himself back in the Speedweek limelight on Monday night at Wayne County Speedway, doing so by tracking down race-long leader, Cale Conley, and completing a winning pass with two laps remaining to secure the $6,000-to-win Duffy Smith Memorial.

Now fifth in the Ohio Sprint Speedweek standings, Henry opened the nine-race Speedweek campaign with a victory at Attica Raceway Park on Friday evening, July 3.

“When we took the checkered, I didn’t even know we took the checkered. I actually thought a caution came out and I started to get really antsy. Then, when Eric (Walls) came over the radio and said ‘top three to the scale,’ I knew the race was over,” Cap Henry laughed in Wayne County Speedway victory lane, driver of the Brett and Patty Lane-owned/Dragon’s Milk White/Beer Barrel Bourbon/Pro Auto Wraps/FK Rod Ends/No. 4 sprint car. “Man, I can’t thank this team enough. They presented me with an incredible opportunity a few years back and it has been great ever since. I’m happy we’ve been able to come out here and take advantage.”

Utilizing an inside-second row starting position, Henry, now a two-time All Star winner at ‘Orrville’s Historic Oval,’ was a contender right from the drop of the green, getting away third after the initial start before taking over second from Zeb Wise on lap eight. At the time, Cale Conley was the race leader, earning the early jump after starting second on the 30-lap grid.

Despite getting the opportunity to show his nose to Conley on several occasions, and having the chance to restart on the tail tank of the Vienna, West Virginia-native twice, once on lap ten and again on lap 13, it was not until lap 27 when Henry was presented with his first, true takeover attempt.

Throwing a slider that did not stick on lap 27, Henry made the next attempt work, this time using slower traffic as a pick to drive underneath Conley at the exit of turn four on lap 28.

“I could see the bottom was starting to come in there, so we moved down and I noticed I was starting to make some gains on Conley,” Cap Henry continued. “Even when we got to traffic there at the end, that groove was still working. It almost looked like Cale (Conely) lost his brakes because he was so committed to the top and wouldn’t come down.”

Cale Conley held on to finish second on Monday evening, followed by Rico Abreu, Jac Haudenschild and Justin Peck. Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson charged from 21st to finish sixth earning the evening’s Hercules Tires Hard Charger Award.

What’s Next:
After a previously scheduled rain date of Tuesday, July 7, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires on Wednesday evening, July 8, at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex in Peebles, Ohio.

FREMONT, Ohio (July 5, 2020) - The third try was definitely the charm for Clute, Texas-native Aaron Reutzel, as the two-time and defending Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 titleholder finally cracked into the 2020 Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires win column, doing so with a victory at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio, on Sunday evening, July 5.

The win, the second of Reutzel’s career at Fremont, not only secured a $5,000 payday, but it ultimately furthered a Speedweek podium streak that already includes a third-place performance at Attica Raceway Park on Friday, July 3, and a runner-up finish at Fremont on Saturday, July 4.

Lining up third on the main event grid by way of dash result, it did not take long for the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports entry to find its way to the front, first sneaking by Paul McMahan to secure second after a restart on lap five, then taking command from race leader, Lee Jacobs, on lap 16. From that point forward, Reutzel was unchallenged, sailing ahead to solidify a 32nd All Star Circuit of Champions victory and his seventh of the season.

Nashville’s Paul McMahan chased Reutzel to the final checkers, followed by Lee Jacobs, Saturday night winner Buddy Kofoid, and Vienna, West Virginia’s Cale Conley.

“It’s pretty cool to win on a race track like this. The last time we won here, it was rough and heavy which is more my style,” Aaron Reutzel said, who now owns the Ohio Sprint Speedweek points lead. “This is as slick as it gets right here. Anything we had in our notebook, we couldn’t look at. We basically had to think ‘what would non-wing guys do’ because the wing really wasn’t working well.”

Although a contender from the start, a pair of cautions on lap five proved to be a positive momentum changer for Reutzel. Restarting in the third position, Reutzel quickly moved by McMahan to claim second, instantly applying pressure to race leader and Fremont Speedway track record holder, Lee Jacobs. By lap ten, Reutzel was all over Jacobs for the race lead, actually pulling even with the 1881 Racing entry on several occasions before slipping underneath Jacobs on lap 16.

Despite a third yellow flag appearance on lap 19, and a fourth caution on lap 24, Reutzel remained sound at the front of the field, never giving McMahan, who followed Reutzel beyond Jacobs for second on lap 18, an opportunity to capitalize. Even when Reutzel found himself entangled with slower cars during the final circuits, the two-time champ was untouchable, instantly separating himself from McMahan by two lappers.

“I can’t say enough about this Folkens Brothers Trucking, Fischer Body Shop, Dissolvalloy race team right now,” Reutzel continued. “Rough and heavy, slick; we just seem to adapt to anything and it’s pretty cool when you can do stuff like that. I couldn’t be more proud of my guys.”

The caution on lap 24 eventually turned into an open red scenario, which allowed the track’s ambulance to respond to a call in the pit area.

What’s Next:
The first segment of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires will continue on Monday evening, July 6, with a visit to ‘Orrville’s Historic Oval’ - Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio.

Buddy Kofoid earns July 4th Speedweek victory over All Stars at Fremont Speedway

FREMONT, Ohio (July 4, 2020) - Forced to settle for second after getting overtaken with five laps remaining one night prior at Attica Raceway Park, Penngrove, California’s Buddy Kofoid redeemed himself in a big way during night two of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires, eventually leading all 35 circuits to score a second-ever Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory in front of a packed house at Fremont Speedway.

Starting from the pole position by way of dash victory, Kofoid’s campaign at the front of the field was relatively uncontested, with his only real challenges in the form of restarts, three in total, and a long altercation with lapped traffic.

Although a sure-fire favorite in any All Star main event, two-time and defending Series champion, Aaron Reutzel, was unable to apply any pressure on Kofoid after attaining the second spot on lap 15. Reutzel would drive home second, followed by Cole Duncan, Greg Wilson, and the evening’s fast qualifier, Josh Baughman.

“Yea, shit, I don’t know what to say,” Buddy Kofoid said in Fremont Speedway victory lane, driver of the Ed Neumeister-owned/Gill Construction/Linder’s Speed Equipment/No. 11N sprint car. “Last year if the track was like this, we would have been a podium or a top-five car. The guys have really picked it up and we got our car so good on slick tracks like this. Even at Attica last night, we were so good. I can’t thank Ed Neumeister and everyone enough for what they do for me. They let me come out and have some fun. This is only my third sprint car race this year, so to have a first and a second with the All Stars is pretty damn cool.”

Despite a pair of red flag stoppages on lap five resulting in an early fuel stop, as well as an additional caution on lap 15, it was smooth sailing for Kofoid at the front of the field, and with the first-half cautions negating any chances for traffic, it was not until lap 23 when the frontrunners reached slower cars for the first time.

By lap 27, traffic intensified, now stacked-up two and three wide in front of Kofoid and second-place running Aaron Reutzel. In a desperate attempt to navigate by a potential roadblock, Kofoid drove high through turns three and four and passed two lappers at once, clearing the pair just before completing lap 28. The move essentially sealed the deal for Kofoid, opening up to a near-straightaway advantage by the 35th and final circuit.

“We had some lapped cars there at the end that kinda made things a little interesting, but I was able to get them,” Kofoid continued. “I knew once we had some cars behind us, I figured it would maybe take some time for the guys behind me to get them.

“I have to leave after Monday to go run the (Keith Kunz Motorsports) midget, so hopefully some of you guys will watch the midget race, too!”

The $5,000 All Star triumph was Kofoid’s first at Fremont Speedway, with his first-ever All Star victory taking shape at Wayne County Speedway during the 2019 edition of Ohio Sprint Speedweek.

Cap Henry earns second-ever All Star victory in Ohio Sprint Speedweek opener at Attica Raceway Park

ATTICA, Ohio (July 3, 2020) - For the second time in his career, and for the first time at Attica Raceway Park, Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry is an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so over a stout contingent of 46 entries during night one of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires.

Impressive, nonetheless, Henry’s route to Attica Raceway Park victory lane commenced from the third row, forced to work his way to the front twice while fending off former All Star winner and California standout, Buddy Kofoid, as well as two-time All Star champion and current Series point leader, Aaron Reutzel. Henry’s second and final takeover occurred on lap 35, using the last inch of Attica’s bottom groove to sneak under Kofoid as the pair battled off of turn four.

Kofoid chased Henry to the final checkers, followed by Reutzel, Cale Thomas and Cale Conley.

“Brett and Patty Lane gave me a great opportunity here and we continue to make the most of it. Zack (Meyers) came on board last year and this is incredible,” Cap Henry said, driver of the Brett and Patty Lane-owned/Dragon’s Milk White/Beer Barrel Bourbon/Pro Auto Wraps/FK Rod Ends/No. 4 sprint car. “I’ve come so close to winning one of these speedweek races here and to finally knock one off is so cool.”

Starting from the fifth position, Henry’s initial jump proved to be beneficial, using momentum to slip his way into third before the completion of lap one. Aaron Reutzel, fresh off of a win at Volunteer Speedway, led the field from the outside-pole.

By the end of lap three, Henry had powered by Kofoid to take control of second, now setting his aim on the defending All Star champion. Inching closer and closer as the laps clicked down, Henry was in position to take the lead for the first time on lap 12, eventually cruising by Reutzel on the bottom just as the leaders were approaching slower traffic. Kofoid mimicked Henry’s move and also powered by Reutzel to take second on lap 15.

The 40-lap main event’s first and only caution appeared on lap 21 ultimately setting up a single-file restart. A better launch for Kofoid proved to be a benefactor for the Penngrove, California-native, using the top of turns one and two to slingshot around Henry before pinching off the No. 4 in turn three.

Although Kofoid was able to maintain composure and keep command, Henry never lost sight of the Ed Neumeister-owned entry and kept himself within striking distance. By lap 35, Henry was ready to pounce again, this time squeezing by Kofoid on the bottom of turn four.

Despite one last encounter with traffic, Henry held tough, driving away to a $5,000 payday.

“Once Buddy (Kofoid) got back by me, I just needed to settle down and get back into my rhythm,” Henry continued. “I kept trying to get lower and lower, all while avoiding the infield tires. I just had to be patient. Lucky for me, our car was great on those long runs. We ended up getting back to him just in time.

“I really wasn’t sure what to do for that restart. I heard (Kofoid) and then I saw him, then I knew I was in trouble. I just had to get settled down and rely on my car on those long runs.”

What’s Next: The 2020 edition of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires will continue on Independence Day - Saturday, July 4 - at the legendary Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio. The northwest Ohio facility will host two rounds of Speedweek with the second taking shape the following evening, Sunday, July 5. Each round will award $5,000 paydays.

Port Royal’s Bob Weikert Memorial featuring All Stars set for July 18-19; Williams Grove’s Hinnershitz opens weekend on July 17

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 2, 2020) - Originally scheduled to be headlined during Memorial Day weekend, Port Royal Speedway’s Bob Weikert Memorial found a new home on the 2020 Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 schedule and will now be featured on Saturday and Sunday, July 18-19. An unofficial precursor to the upcoming two-day Tuscarora 50 in mid-September, the 2020 Bob Weikert Memorial will award a pair of $10,000 top prizes.

Adding an extra kick to their visit to the Keystone State, Tony Stewart’s All Stars will launch the mid-July weekend with a visit to Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg on Friday evening, July 17. Honoring the ‘Flying Farmer’ Tommy Hinnershitz, the Friday night showcase will award a $5,000 payday, also featuring the 358 sprint cars on the evening card. In addition, the Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial will be a Hoosier Diamond Series event for the 410 sprint cars.

The All Star Circuit of Champions and Pennsylvania Posse battled at the Port Royal ‘Speed Palace’ once already in 2020 with Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri earning the $6,000 payday. Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson, the 2020 USAC Indiana Midget Week champion, drove home second to Macri, followed by Danny Dietrich, Aaron Reutzel and Brent Marks.

The Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial will feature the All Stars at Williams Grove Speedway for the first time in 2020.

All Stars to visit Wisconsin and Iowa on July 30-August 1; Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race to kick-off weekend at Plymouth Dirt Track

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 29, 2020) - Although a slight shuffle in destinations from the original weekend agenda, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will invade areas within Wisconsin and Iowa during the final days of July and the first weekend of August, setting aim on three tracks over a three-day time lapse, all of which kicking-off with the highly sought after Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race at the Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wisconsin, on Thursday, July 30. Originally scheduled for late-May, the second-ever Rayce Rudeen Foundation event will award a $26,000 top prize; the second-largest paying program on the 2020 All Star schedule.

Trekking southwest into the Hawkeye State, the weekend will continue with a visit to 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, on Friday, July 31. Originally slated to take the Sunday, August 2, slot during the All Star invasion of Iowa, but now replacing Jackson Motorplex’s original date, 34 Raceway’s visit will feature the All Star Circuit of Champions for only the fifth time in Series history, most recently on July 28, 2019, for the inaugural Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race that awarded a $26,000 payday. Three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, Tony Stewart, was the victor.

Needing no formal introduction, the three-race sweep will conclude with a visit to the Sprint Car Capital of the World, Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, August 1 for Weiler Night with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1. Teams represented will battle on the world-famous half-mile for a $5,000 top prize. Fresno, California’s Gio Scelzi scored the 2019 Knoxville Raceway victory featuring Tony Stewart’s All Stars, topping a field of 48 entries for a first-ever Series win.

With the intent to build a four-race weekend through the Midwest, All Star Circuit of Champions officials are working hard to find a destination for Sunday, August 2. Details regarding an added event will be shared when they become available. A visit to Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minnesota, may be an option for Sunday.

Aaron Reutzel tracks down Cory Eliason to score Volunteer Speedway victory

BULLS GAP, Tenn. (June 27, 2020) - It took fifth-starting Aaron Reutzel 23 circuits to track down Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 championship rival Cory Eliason, but once the Clute, Texas-native secured the top spot on lap 24, the Texas Sprint Car Nationals main event on the highbanks of Volunteer Speedway was as good as complete. Although forced to endure a green-white-checkered finish, Reutzel’s dominance was clear, eventually escaping to a two-second advantage in just two trips around the speedway.

A sweet ending to a bitter night for the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports team, Reutzel was forced to change motors after his respective hot lap session, only to be caught-up in an incident during the evening’s dash. The familiar No. 87 did restart the dash, but had to settle with a fifth-place result.

The $5,000 triumph, a first-ever for Reutzel at Volunteer and a first-ever as a full-time All Star in the state of Tennessee, bumped Reutzel’s 2020 win tally to six during All Star Circuit of Champions competition, continuing his chase toward a third consecutive Series title.

Eliason, who led the first 23 laps before losing the top spot to Reutzel, held on to finish second at Volunteer on Saturday night, followed by Nashville’s Paul McMahan and three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, Tony Stewart.

“Everyone always talks about how good their team is, but I have the best team in the pit area. This was definitely a tough night,” Aaron Reutzel boasted in Volunteer Speedway victory lane, backed by Folkens Brothers Trucking, Fischer Body Shop, Ti22, and Hollywood Blasting. “We had to do so much tonight, but they never gave up and continued to work hard no matter what was thrown at them. They proved why we won the championship the last two years. My team won this race tonight.”

Utilizing the outside-front row starting spot, Visalia, California’s Cory Eliason jumped to the early advantage, quickly driving away from Paul McMahan, Sye Lynch and Tony Stewart. In fact, Eliason’s only challenge during the first 15 laps of the 30-lap contest was in the form of lapped traffic, which came into play for the first time on lap nine. At the time, Reutzel was battling in the fifth position, eventually earning a spot over Stewart to claim fourth on lap 13. Two circuits later, Reutzel was on the move again, this time working by the Pete Grove-owned entry occupied by Sye Lynch.

Working the very topside of turns one and two, and sneaking through the middle and very bottom of turns three and four, Reutzel powered his way around McMahan to take second on lap 20, this time using a slide job between turns one and two to secure the position.

Despite Eliason’s attempt to escape in traffic, Reutzel’s momentum was too powerful to overcome, as the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports entry cut the near-straightaway lead to less than a car length by lap 22. One circuit later, Reutzel made his first bid for the lead, and although the slider did not stick, a slider the following lap would, driving by Eliason at the exit of turn two on lap 24.

The main event’s first and only caution appeared on lap 29 forcing the aforementioned green-white-checkered finish.

“You could only drive into the corner so hard above the cushion because you would just slide to the fence,” Reutzel continued. “There was only one piece of moisture in that whole corner and that was right along the bottom. When I went in and turned down, I could get a good run down the front stretch. I just kept digging at it and digging at it and I was able to make up some time on people. We were able to track down (Eliason) without a caution and that’s just a statement of how good we were.”

“We were good in one and two, but we struggled in three and four. That’s where Aaron (Reutzel) beat us,” Cory Eliason said, driver of Rudeen Racing No. 26. “He was able to carry momentum a lot better than I could. We are getting a lot closer to where we need to be. This kinda happened to me in Australia where I finished on the podium twelve or so times in a row before I finally won one. Sometimes finishing second can get frustrating. Hats off to my team. We were fast all night.”

As an added bonus for Reutzel, his feature performance also secured the evening’s Hercules Tires Hard Charger Award.

The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their weekend in the Volunteer State with a second consecutive appearance at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tennessee, on Sunday, June 28.

Anthony Macri outruns field in Port Royal’s Keith Kauffman Classic for first-ever All Star victory

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (June 24, 2020) - For the first time in his young career, Dillsburg, Pennsylvania’s Anthony Macri is an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so, in unbelievable form, during Port Royal Speedway’s annual Keith Kauffman Classic on Wednesday, June 24. The victory, earning Macri $6,000 in the process, was accomplished in flawless fashion, eventually outrunning the entire field, including a late-charging Kyle Larson, by just under four seconds.

Macri started from the pole position and led every circuit of the 30-lap main event, navigating through waves of intense traffic with ease, and in certain periods, separated himself from the field by upwards of four lapped cars.

“I don’t even know what to say,” Anthony Macri said in victory lane, driver of the Macri Concrete/J&S Fabrication/No. 39M sprint car. “We threw some stuff at (the car) for the dash and we weren’t even sure it was going to work, but clearly it showed that it worked in the dash. So all we did was add some fuel and let her eat in the feature.”

Although imposing no threat on Macri, Kyle Larson, Danny Dietrich, Aaron Reutzel, Brent Marks, and Brock Zearfoss all battled within the top-five over the course of the Keith Kauffman contest, swapping positions on several occasions. It was not until a caution on lap 22, brought out for a slowing Zearfoss, that allowed a few of the teams to find their true finishing potential. In fact, the ensuing restart propelled Larson from fourth to second, banging the boards on the top edge of the speedway to drive around Dietrich and Reutzel on laps 24 and 25, respectively.

A final lap maneuver by Dietrich to get around Reutzel allowed the Gettysburg-native to claim third at the line, followed by Reutzel and Brent Marks.

The All Star triumph included, Macri has now won three-in-a-row at the Port Royal ‘Speed Palace.’

“My team has given me a great car over the last few weeks. I could put the car wherever I wanted,” Macri continued, who earned his pole position by way of dash victory; he started fifth. “I know the fast lane is normally the top of turns one and two, and it normally cleans off in turns three and four on the bottom. After about 15 laps, I pretty much killed my tires. I was actually on defensive mode for a little while just hoping they weren’t going to blow by me. I was trying to push hard through traffic, but I was happy to see the yellows just so I could have some clean air. I knew I could drive the car as hard as I could.

“The month we spent out on the road this year really changed me as a driver. I came back here and I’m ready to win.”

What’s Next:
Diving deep into the heart of Dixie, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their 2020 championship campaign with a doubleheader on the highbanks of Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tennessee, on Saturday and Sunday, June 27-28. Dubbed the Food City presents the Tennessee Sprint Car Nationals, the Bulls Gap invasion will feature back-to-back $5,000-to-win main events, also awarding points toward the season-ending championship purse.

Although the Tennessee Sprint Car Nationals visit will be a first during Tony Stewart’s tenure as owner of the All Stars, it is certainly not the first stop in Series history, most recently invading the northern Tennessee facility on March 19-20, 2010, with Joey Saldana and Jason Meyers each earning feature wins.

Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires commences July 3 at Attica Raceway Park

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 22, 2020) - The 2020 edition of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires featuring the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 is finally set in stone and will commence, officially, on Friday evening, July 3, at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio. Complete with nine events over a ten-day span, visiting seven tracks throughout the Buckeye State in the process, Ohio Sprint Speedweek will be as demanding as ever. The nine-race campaign not only boasts an action-packed agenda, but the annual spectacle will attract some of the nation’s finest open wheel competitors, all chasing a chunk of the $11,000 Ohio Sprint Speedweek points fund, $4,000 of which being awarded to the Speedweek champion.

After a Friday night visit to the home of ‘Ohio’s Finest Racing,’ Speedweek will continue with a doubleheader at Fremont Speedway on Saturday and Sunday, July 4-5, followed by a takeover at Orrville’s Wayne County Speedway on Monday, July 6. All four programs during the opening weekend of Ohio Sprint Speedweek will award $5,000 top prizes.

A scheduled rain date of Tuesday, July 7, will separate the first four Speedweek programs from the last five with action hitting high gear once again at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex in Peebles on Wednesday, July 8. The trip to southern Ohio will be flanked by a stop at Muskingum County Speedway in Zanesville on Thursday, July 9. Like the first four events on the schedule, action at Brushcreek and Muskingum will award $5,000 paydays.

The ten-day trek throughout the Buckeye State will cap with a three-race stretch of high dollar events, the first being the coveted $15,554-to-win Dean Knittel Memorial at Portsmouth Raceway Park on Friday, July 10. A previously scheduled Sharon Speedway doubleheader, featuring the annual Lou Blaney Memorial and the sought-after Justin Snyder’s Salute to the Troops, will conclude Ohio Sprint Speedweek on Saturday and Sunday, July 11-12. The Lou Blaney Memorial and Salute to the Troops will each award $6,000 top prizes.

A stout contingent of full-time All Stars will take-on Ohio’s finest, as well as a number of expected outside invaders, during the nine-race Ohio Sprint Speedweek schedule including two-time and defending All Star Circuit of Champions champion and 2020 leading winner, Aaron Reutzel.

Including a pair of victory lane appearances in Florida, Reutzel sits on top of the Series driver standings with five victories, holding a 40-point cushion over Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason. Reutzel’s most recent victory occurred in his home state of Texas, conquering action at Lonestar Speedway in Kilgore on Saturday, June 13.

Like Reutzel, Eliason will enter Ohio Sprint Speedweek with a competitive edge, earning eight top-ten finishes during the first ten point-earning All Star starts of 2020. Including non-point action in Florida, Eliason has been on the podium eight times, finishing second during three of those eight podium runs.

Monarch Motor Speedway winner, Danny Dietrich is currently third in the All Star driver standings, followed by Southern Oklahoma Speedway winner, Brock Zearfoss, Rookie of the Year contender, Zeb Wise, All Star veteran and Nashville-native, Paul McMahan, Columbus, Indiana’s Tony Stewart, former two-time All Star champion, Greg Wilson, Canadian hotshot, Skylar Gee, and former ASCS National Tour winner, Josh Baughman.

Dominic Scelzi scores first-ever All Star victory during Thunder Through The Plains finale at Chatham Speedway

CHATHAM, La. (June 14, 2020) - Just 24 hours following his near-tie for second-place at Lonestar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas, eventually resolved over a friendly game of rock-paper-scissors with Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason, Fresno, California’s Dominic Scelzi did two spots better on Sunday evening and scored a first-ever Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory during the Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tire finale at Chatham Speedway in Chatham, Louisiana.

Including his win, Scelzi ended the eight-race Thunder Through The Plains schedule with five top-five finishes.

“I’ll tell you what man, this is big for me. We’ve really been hitting our strides the last couple of nights and it’s really shown,” Dominic Scelzi said, driver of the SE Inc./Red Rose Transportation/No. 41S sprint car. “Jimmy, Marty, Aaron, Brandon; these guys have really busted their asses this week, going to a bunch of new places we’ve never been to before. I’m not even sure I ever made an All Star dash before this week. For me, this is every bit as big as winning the World Challenge. I have one more mark to add to my resume and that’s an Outlaw win. Hopefully we can do that real soon.”

The $5,000 triumph was accomplished in exciting fashion, first working underneath fellow California-native and race leader, Justin Sanders, at the exit of turn four with eight laps complete, then surviving multiple single-file restarts before holding off two-time All Star champion and Kilgore winner, Aaron Reutzel, in a drag race to the final checkers. The drag race, separated by a mere-.2 seconds, was initiated by a caution and a restart with two circuits remaining.

Justin Sanders, who actually retook command from Scelzi for a single circuit on lap 27, doing so by using the bottom groove to sneak below the familiar No. 41s at the exit of turn four, held on to finish third at Chatham, followed by Zeb Wise and Paul McMahan.

“We were lucky to hang on those last two laps, especially with Aaron (Reutzel) breathing down our neck,” Scelzi continued. “Getting a little love tap at the end from Aaron, and Paul (McMahan) and everyone giving me a thumbs-up, it just goes to show how big of a following and friends I have in this sport. I haven’t won a lot of races, but this is a big one. I just want to thank the big man upstairs. I’m going to get really drunk tonight.”

What’s Next:
After a much needed rest, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their 2020 campaign with a visit to Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday evening, June 24.

Aaron Reutzel earns 30th-career All Star victory during visit to Lonestar Speedway

KILGORE, Texas (June 13, 2020) - Performing in true championship form, two-time and defending Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 titlist, Aaron Reutzel, put on an impressive performance on Saturday evening during his visit to Lonestar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas, ultimately capping the Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires program with a main event victory, the 30th Series win of his career and scoring $5,000 in the process. Padding the stat book, the All Star triumph was a first in his home state of Texas, decimating the field after taking command on lap 10 and crossing under the final checkers by a margin of victory just shy of four seconds.

The Lonestar Speedway win resulted in Reutzel’s second trip to victory lane during the Thunder Through The Plains campaign, earning the first over Kyle Larson during a barn burner at Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Oklahoma, on Friday, June 5.

“The last couple of starts have been frustrating, I’m not going to lie. It’s really taken a toll on me. I feel like we’ve been good enough to be a podium car every night, we’ve just had a lot of dumb stuff happen. But my guys never gave up and they continue to do a phenomenal job,” Aaron Reutzel said, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Brothers Trucking/Fischer Body Shop/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/No. 87 sprint car. “I hate to say that only our team works their butts off because every team out here works their butts off. We’ve been at the track every night for the past ten nights. Tonight, it just all finally worked out for us. It certainly wouldn’t be possible with my guys, Jim Bob and Dylan, and all of our great partners.”

Lining up fourth on the 30-lap grid by way of dash result, it did not take long for Reutzel to battle his way toward the front, already powering into second by the time the first two laps were checked off the counter. At the time, Cory Eliason maintained the race lead, utilizing the pole position to earn the top spot after the initial start.

By lap nine, Eliason found himself in traffic, nearly getting caught up with a slower car which allowed Reutzel to close-in on the Rudeen Racing entry. The very next circuit, Reutzel made his move, first pulling even with Eliason through turns one and two, all before driving by his fellow All Star full-timer as the pair raced off of turn four. From that point on, it was the ‘Aaron Reutzel Show,’ picking off slower cars one at a time with ease before earning his fifth All Star Circuit of Champions victory of the 2020 season.

“I’m just trying to represent the great state of Texas the best that I can,” an elated Aaron Reutzel continued, followed by an immediate cheer from the crowd. “To get a win in front of this awesome crowd is phenomenal. I’m glad I could pull it off for my fellow Texans.”

Although Reutzel went on to be unchallenged, Visalia, California’s Cory Eliason was not so fortunate, eventually feeling pressure from third row starter Dominic Scelzi during the closing circuits. Despite failing to get by Eliason, Scelzi certainly made things exciting and fell short of the runner-up spot by less than a ten-thousandths of a second. Refusing to admit he was defeated on-track, Scelzi proceeded to challenge Eliason to a rock-paper-scissors battle in the pit area after the feature was checkered; the result was a tie.

Justin Sanders finished fourth at Lonestar Speedway, followed by the ‘Jonestown Jet’ Brock Zearfoss.

Danny Dietrich leads all 30 to score All Star victory at Monarch Motor Speedway

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (June 12, 2020) - Improving one position over his Thursday night result at Southern Oklahoma Speedway, ‘Double-D’ Danny Dietrich nearly swept the entire evening program on Friday night at Monarch Motor Speedway, first earning victories during heat race and dash competition, then capping the Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires showcase by leading all 30 circuits during the evening’s main event and scoring $5,000 in the process. For Dietrich, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory was his first of the season, simultaneously increasing his career All Star win total to 12.

“My goal coming down here was to win at least one of these races. We were pretty close last night, so to get it done here tonight is pretty awesome,” Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing/Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market’/Pace Performance/Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts/Drop Of Ink Tattoo/Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC/Self Made/No. 48 sprint car. “It has been a pretty demanding week. Getting a win with the All Stars makes the work and the heat totally worth it. Hopefully we get to come back to this place and do it again next year.”

Earning the pole position by way of dash win, Danny Dietrich’s route to Monarch Motor Speedway victory lane was relatively unchallenged, first dealing with a pair of opening lap stoppages before the race could officially commence.

Immediately choosing the cushion over the bottom groove, Dietrich jumped to the early advantage, keeping fellow front row starter Cory Eliason at bay as the duo raced beyond the flagstand to complete the opening lap.

Continuing to zing the top of the speedway, Dietrich and Eliason met traffic for the first time on lap 12, thus allowing Eliason to close the gap on Dietrich ever so slightly. Traffic continued to be a factor over the next several circuits, ultimately intensifying with cars stacked two and three wide by lap 21. Although Dietrich did his best to lose Eliason among the slower cars, the driver of the Rudeen Racing entry held on and kept pace with the Gettysburg-native, driving himself within a few car lengths of Dietrich’s back bumper.

Eventually finding his way back to clean air, Dietrich quickly picked up the pace and sailed home, increasing his lead to just shy of three seconds by the time the final checkers waved.

Besides the pair of red flag incidents on the opening lap, the first for Premier Motorsports’ Justin Peck and the second for a multi-car pileup on the front straightaway, the evening’s 30-lapper would go on to be caution free.

“I just want to thank my car owner, Gary Kauffman, for allowing this trip to happen. There are a lot of great people who support this race team and we wouldn’t be in this position without them,” Dietrich continued. “We still have two nights to go, so hopefully we can do this again and give our fans back home something to be even more proud of.”

Cory Eliason would finish second at Monarch Motor Speedway, followed by Southern Oklahoma winner Brock Zearfoss, Roger Crockett, and Dominic Scelzi.

Brock Zearfoss bests field at Southern Oklahoma Speedway for first All Star victory of 2020

ARDMORE, Okla. (June 12, 2020) - For the first time in 2020, and for the fourth time in his career, the ‘Jonestown Jet’ Brock Zearfoss is an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, this time reigning supreme at Southern Oklahoma Speedway in Ardmore, Oklahoma, during Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires action on June 11. Utilizing the outside-pole position, Zearfoss took command for the first time on lap 15 and never looked back, zinging his preferred line around the very topside of the speedway for a $5,000 top prize.

A bit of sweet redemption for the Jonestown, Pennsylvania-based race team, Zearfoss was forced to overcome a mechanical malfunction during qualifying time trials at Devil’s Bowl Speedway before finishing eighth during main event action. Just 24 hours later, Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing are standing in victory lane.

“This just goes to show how badass my team is. They never stop digging. Even after getting banged up yesterday during qualifying, they had the spare car down before they even towed me off the track,” Brock Zearfoss said, driver of the Brock Zearfoss Racing/Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill/Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc./C&D Rigging Inc./BAPS Auto Paints & Supply/No. 3Z sprint car. “A lot of other teams helped us get ready for that heat race. It was nice to salvage the night for an eighth-place finish, but this feels a lot better.”

Before Zearfoss drove his way to the top spot on lap 15, the battle for the lead was perpetual, first held by pole-sitter and full-time All Star, Skylar Gee, for the first five circuits. A caution on lap six would spell bad news for the Canadian hotshot, eventually losing command to Fresno, California’s Dominic Scelzi. The lap six restart would also spell bad news for Zearfoss, who actually slipped back three spots by the time the frontrunners completed the sixth circuit. Zearfoss was racing in the second spot at the time of the caution.

A trio of upcoming caution periods, including a red flag scenario, would give Zearfoss a chance to recover his slip, ultimately battling back to second by lap 11. The ensuing restart after a lap 15 caution is when the ‘Jonestown Jet’ made his winning move, quickly scooting by Scelzi’s No. 41S to lead the circuit.

Despite another four-pack of caution flags, one of which resulting in an open red to allow teams the opportunity to add fuel, and one with just two circuits remaining, Zearfoss held strong and remained untouchable, quickly escaping to a near-straightaway lead as the white flag waved.

“I was pretty mad at myself early on when I lost those three spots. That red flag gave me some time to stew on things a little bit. I knew I was going to have to get up on the wheel,” Zearfoss continued. “I just can’t say enough about my team. Noisey, Tye, and everyone else involved in this deal; they put their heart and soul into this race team. I’m very blessed to be in the position that I’m in. Hopefully we put on a good show for everyone tonight.”

Danny Dietrich powered home second after starting eighth on the grid, followed by Dominic Scelzi, Cory Eliason, and an 11th-starting Justin Sanders.

Kyle Larson earns third consecutive All Star victory during Wednesday visit to Devil’s Bowl Speedway

MESQUITE, Texas (June 11, 2020) - Kyle Larson’s Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires campaign has been more than impressive, not only scoring three consecutive Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victories, but doing so at facilities scattered across three states, this time in the Lone Star State. Impressive enough, Larson kicked-off his four-race Midwest venture with a runner-up finish at Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Oklahoma.

Larson, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/Tarlton and Sons/GSR/No. 57 sprint car, earned his third consecutive All Star victory on Wednesday evening, June 10, at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, utilizing the outside-pole position to eventually snag the race lead and another $5,000 top prize. Allowing slower cars to help in his pursuit of the front, Larson took command for the first time on lap 14, ultimately driving underneath race leader, Kasey Kahne, at the exit of turn four and defeating the Washington-native in a drag race back to the flag stand. That drag race, won by a mere-.03 seconds, would be the final time Larson was challenged the entire 25-lap distance, as caution flaps would wave the following circuit creating a restart situation in clean air for the Elk Grove, California-native.

Kasey Kahne held on to finish second at Devil’s Bowl Speedway, followed by an eighth-starting Scott Bogucki, Cory Eliason, and Aaron Reutzel, who advanced six positions to seal his top-five outcome.

“I was trying to be patient, but it got to the point where I told myself ‘it’s only a 25-lap race, so I’m probably being a little too patient.’ It was time to go,” Kyle Larson said, who now owns 13 All Star Circuit of Champions victories, this being the first in Texas. “I ran a few really hard laps there and ended up getting by Kasey (Kahne) just before the caution came out. I felt really good. Honestly, I think the car got better and better every time we hit the track and I feel like we definitely learned a lot tonight. Hopefully we can carry this momentum into the rest of the year.

“A big thanks to Paul Silva and Doug. They’ve been logging a lot of hours up and down the road this week and a lot of late nights and early mornings. We’ve had so many supporters step up and help us out and that means the world to me. To all of the fans, thank you so much for supporting local racing and staying up late to watch us race. It means the world to us.”

Kyle Larson earns second consecutive All Star victory with win at Lawton Speedway

LAWTON, Okla. (June 8, 2020) - For the second time in as many nights, Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson is an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so during Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires competition at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Oklahoma, on Monday, June 8. Accompanied by a $5,000 payay, the Lawton victory required patience and perseverance, once again forced to fend off some of the best in the business, all while navigating a tricky, yet narrow racing groove.

The victory bumped Larson’s All Star win count to three in 2020, simultaneously increasing his overall All Star victory tally to 12.

“To come out here and win two in a row like this says so much about this team and what we have going on,” Kyle Larson said, who was victorious one night prior at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas. “It’s pretty incredible to see so many people out here supporting this deal, especially on a Monday night. It’s exciting to be a part of it.”

Despite a pair of cautions delaying the initial start, Larson was unrattled, utilizing his row two starting spot to get the jump into second before the completion of lap one. Powering ahead from the pole position, two-time and defending All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel, set the early pace, keeping things in check during the first nine circuits.

Traffic came into play for the first time on lap ten giving Larson an opportunity to close the gap on Reutzel. Putting himself in striking distance early, Larson eventually made a bid for the lead on lap 13, executing a perfect slider through turns three and four before out-sprinting Reutzel back to the flagstand.

Although Larson was the sole leader from that point forward, Reutzel did not go down without a fight, nearly reclaiming the top spot on several occasions with aggressive sliders through turns one and two. All of Retuzel’s attempts were eventually denied, as Larson was able to diamond off the corner and retake command before the exit of turn two. In total, three slide job attempts were carried out by Reutzel in hopes of dethroning Larson, but as aforementioned, all three were negated.

Meanwhile, as the front runners diced for positions, Lawton Speedway’s racing real estate started to narrow forcing all feature competitors to move into the rubbered-up racing groove that formed around the middle and bottom of the speedway. Although wide in some spots, the abrasive surface made passing tricky.

After a fuel stop with 29 laps recorded, instigated by another caution and a dissipated fuel window, action resumed with Larson still on the point. Even with Reutzel and Danny Dietrich applying the pressure, Larson hung on the final 11 circuits, maneuvering the abrasive surface carefully and even surviving a final encounter with traffic.

“There’s a lot of strategy that goes into racing on a surface that gets like that. It makes it fun in a way, but it can be really stressful,” Kyle Larson explained, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Tarlton and Sons/Finley Farms/No. 57 sprint car. “I knew Aaron’s (Reutzel) only shot to get by me was going to be a slider in one of the corners. I was just trying to run easy. I didn’t want to get too close to the guys in front of me, and the track was still really wide at that point. He was almost carrying too much speed when he got by me that he actually slipped up out of the rubber.”

Less than a second back, Aaron Reutzel crossed the line in the runner-up spot, followed by Danny Dietrich, Josh Baughman, and DJ Netto.

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue the 2020 edition of Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires with a return to Outlaw Motor Speedway in Oktaha, Oklahoma, on Tuesday, June 9. The event was originally slated for Saturday, June 6, but Mother Nature stepped-in and ruined the evening just as the second set of warm-ups were hitting the speedway. All Star hot laps are slated to begin at 7:15 p.m. Those seeking additional news and notes pertaining to the event should visit Outlaw Motor Speedway on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Outlawmotorspeedway1/.

Kyle Larson goes wire-to-wire at 81 Speedway for Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires win

PARK CITY, Kan. (June 7, 2020) - For the second time in 2020, and for the 11th time in his career, ‘Yung Money’ Kyle Larson is an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, this time during Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires competition at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas. Snagging $5,000 in the process, the wire-to-wire victory was extra satisfying for the Elk Grove, California-native, creating a sense of redemption after finishing second in a wild main event at Red Dirt Raceway on Friday, June 5.

“That was a lot of fun. I just want to thank all of the fans for coming out and supporting this race,” Kyle Larson said, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Tarlton and Sons/Finley Farms/Durst/No. 57 sprint car. “It definitely feels good to be out here racing sprint cars.”

Larson’s trip to 81 Speedway victory lane commenced from the outside of row one, eventually upgrading his runner-up starting position to the race lead with a slider over Cory Eliason through turns three and four. Although the move would result in abrupt contact with the turn four cushion bringing the familiar No. 57 to a slight wheel stand while exiting the corner, Larson prevailed and crossed under the flagstand with the race lead.

The preferred line around the very topside of the speedway soon moved to the low side, as an abrasive surface forced the entire field, including the race leader, to switch focus to the inside line. By lap ten, the entire field was utilizing 81 Speedway’s bottom groove, already mastered by Angola, Indiana’s Zeb Wise who climbed six spots to find second by lap seven.

Despite countless attempts by Larson to increase his lead in traffic, Wise proved himself to be just as maneuverable through the roadblocks, eventually eradicating all slower cars between himself and the race leader. A caution on lap 18 would give Wise a chance to capitalize, but the opportunity to drive by Larson did not occur until lap 24 of 25.

While hugging the bottom of the speedway, Larson missed his entry into turn one allowing Wise a chance to sneak through. The near-side-by-side battle soon fell into Larson’s favor, driving on to score the $5,000 payday over Wise, Cory Eliason, Dominic Scelzi, and Tony Stewart.

“I knew I needed to be aggressive at the start because it was a shorter race,” Larson continued. “I was able to get the lead on the first lap and then I just followed the cushion. I started to notice that I could make-up a lot of time on entry, but I was either maintaining position, or the lap cars were pulling away from me on exit, so I knew rubber was starting to come into play. Once you get in the rubber, you just try to not make mistakes. I did make a mistake there toward the end and Zeb (Wise) stuck his nose under me. Fortunately, I was able to get back down. At that point, I just needed to calm down and finish it out.”

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue the 2020 edition of Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires with a return to Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Oklahoma, on Monday, June 8. Originally slated for Thursday, June 4, but later postponed due to weather, the All Star visit to Lawton Speedway will be a first-ever for America’s Series, followed-up with a return trip to Outlaw Motor Speedway in Oktaha, Oklahoma, on Tuesday, June 9.

Aaron Reutzel outruns Kyle Larson in Red Dirt Raceway barn burner

MEEKER, Okla. (June 5, 2020) - Less than a week after getting edged-out by Austin McCarl in an epic battle at Park Jefferson International Speedway, Clute, Texas-native Aaron Reutzel redeemed himself and gave Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 fans something even more standing ovation-worthy, this time outdueling Kyle Larson in a slider slugfest during a first-ever Series appearance at Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Oklahoma.

The victory, Reutzel’s fourth of the 2020 season and the 29th of his All Star career, not only awarded a $5000 top prize, but it officially opened the 2020 edition of Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires. Kyle Larson chased Reutzel to the final checkers, followed by Cory Eliason, Justin Peck and Danny Dietrich.

“I just want to thank the Baughman family for giving me this opportunity and taking a chance on me to come out here and race. They trust me to come in here and do my job and it feels awesome to be able to put up results like this. Curt Fischer of Fischer Body Shop is with us tonight, so we’re glad to get it done for him,” said Aaron Reutzel, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Fischer Body Shop/Folkens Brothers Trucking/No. 87 sprint car. “Dylan, Jim Bob and I just kinda do our thing and it works really well. We certainly wouldn’t be in this position without everyone who supports this team and believes in us.”

Lining up seventh on the feature grid by way of dash result, it did not take long for Reutzel to learn his way around the Meeker quarter-mile, eventually navigating his way to third with just three laps checked off the counter. At that point, Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson was the main event leader, utilizing the outside-pole position to snag the top spot before the completion of lap one. Danny Dietrich, who started third, raced between Larson and Reutzel.

After a pair of cautions on lap nine, followed by another set of yellow flags on lap 11, a long stretch of green flag action would ensue with the top three battling under a blanket. By lap 17, Reutzel was in position to take the runner-up spot away Dietrich, this time using a slider between turns three and four to steal the position away from the Gettysburg-native. Despite the position change, Reutzel, Larson and Dietrich continued to race all within just a few car-lengths of each other, soon faced with traffic for the first time on lap 22.

Lap 23 saw the evening’s first major takeover attempt, as Reutzel dived underneath Larson to take command through turns one and two. Larson returned the favor with a slider of his own through turns three and four, regaining control of the field as the pair drag raced toward the flagstand. Now forced to deal with a gaggle of slower cars, the battle between Larson and Reutzel would only intensify.

Maintaining momentum around the speedway’s outer edge, Reutzel powered by Larson to lead the next two circuits. Staying in hot pursuit, Larson quickly retook command from the two-time All Star champion with another slider in turns three and four.

From that point forward, it was an all-out brawl for the lead, racing nose-to-tail and side-by-side for the next ten circuits, exchanging slide jobs for the top spot nearly every trip around the speedway. Despite the persistence displayed by each driver, and accidental contact on more than one occasion, Larson remained in control until lap 36.

A final slider through turns three and four on lap 36 confirmed Reutzel’s visit to victory lane. Caution flags flew for the final time the following circuit setting up a four-lap sprint to the in clean air; Reutzel prevailed.

“We were racing each other so hard that we actually had a hard time getting through traffic. I was watching lapped cars drive away from us because we were running so hard,” an elated Aaron Reutzel continued. “Obviously, I was trying to pass him and get rid of him, but (Kyle Larson) is so good. You think you have him, but then he pulls something out of his hat. There were a few times where he thought he had me because he would leave the slider lane open. I’m not even sure what lap we started all of that on.”

“That was a lot of fun. Obviously, it would have been more fun to get the win,” Kyle Larson said, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/No. 57 entry. “To have a dual like that with Aaron (Reutzel), for what felt like 15 to 20 laps, is awesome. We were a little bit off there in the feature and I think Aaron was a touch better than us. But we were still able to fight with him and do what we could to get the win. The fans definitely got their money’s worth tonight.”

The All Stars will visit the highbanks of Volunteer Speedway on June 27-28

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 4, 2020) - Diving deep into the heart of Dixie, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their 2020 championship campaign with a doubleheader on the highbanks of Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tennessee, on Saturday and Sunday, June 27-28. Dubbed the Food City presents the Tennessee Sprint Car Nationals, the Bulls Gap invasion pads a June agenda that already includes visits to Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, and Louisiana, increasing the month’s schedule to 11 events between June 4 and June 28. The two-day program will feature back-to-back $5,000 top prizes, also awarding points toward the season-ending championship purse.

Although the Tennessee Sprint Car Nationals visit will be a first during Tony Stewart’s tenure as owner of the All Stars, it is certainly not the first stop in Series history, most recently invading the northern Tennessee facility on March 19-20, 2010, with Joey Saldana and Jason Meyers each earning feature wins.

Earning a combined 25 Series victories during the last two seasons, not including the three he has amassed during non-point and point competition thus far this year, Clute, Texas’s Aaron Reutzel is just one of 11 full-time All Stars expected to enter action at Volunteer Speedway on June 27-28.

In addition, 2019 All Star Circuit of Champions Rookie of the Year, Cory Eliason, will hit the Bulls Gap-area highbanks, as well as former Port Royal Speedway track champion, Brock Zearfoss, sprint car veteran and multi-time All Star winner, Paul McMahan, former two-time Series champion, Greg Wilson, former ASCS National Rookie of the Year, Skylar Gee, All Star winner and Indiana hotshot, Justin Peck, 2019 PA Sprint Car Series and Williams Grove Speedway track champion, Danny Dietrich, Indiana-native and multi-time USAC National Midget Series winner, Zeb Wise, three-time ASCS national champion, Sam Hafertepe, Jr., and Odessa, Texas-native and former ASCS National Tour winner, Josh Baughman.

Also entering action in the Volunteer State will be three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee, Tony Stewart. The Columbus, Indiana-native is a recent winner with the All Star Circuit of Champions and secured a $26,000 payday during the Rayce Rudeen Foundation event at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa.

Austin McCarl holds off Aaron Reutzel for first-ever All Star victory in thriller at Park Jefferson International Speedway

JEFFERSON, S.D. (May 30, 2020) - Unarguably one of the the most exciting main event outcomes in Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 and Bumper-to-Bumper IRA Series history, Altoona, Iowa’s Austin McCarl accomplished the near-impossible on Saturday night at Park Jefferson International Speedway in Jefferson, South Dakota, and held off two-time and defending All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel, for a first-ever Series victory and a $6,900 top prize. Originally slated to award $6,600, Kevin Rudeen of Rudeen Racing bumped the winner’s share an extra $300 to award $6,900.

Ending with a final margin of victory equalling a fraction of a second, McCarl and Reutzel’s battle for the lead was relentless, exchanging command lap after lap, and sometimes multiple times a lap, during a wild trek through traffic over the final eight circuits. Even the final lap was a barn burner with Reutzel leading the duo down the backstretch and into turn three. Although Reutzel did his best to protect the bottom and shut down any last-ditch effort by McCarl to regain control, the attempt failed, as McCarl was able to maneuver under Reutzel, giving him a slight “kiss” to the inside nerf bar before beating the current All Star championship points leader back to the flagstand.

“I was just trying to beat Aaron (Reutzel),” an elated Austin McCarl laughed, who kicked off the evening with a heat race and dash victory aboard his TMAC Motorsports No. 17A. “I was just trying to run my own race and do what was best for my car. The bottom was better for me, but he was better than me moving up around guys. The bottom was so good there that I was just trying to hit my marks and get guys going down the straightaway and into the corner when they got tight. I just can’t thank my family and supporters enough. To get my first All Star win with my sponsors here, and everyone watching at home, it’s a night i’ll never forget.”

Starting from the pole position, Columbus, Indiana’s Tony Stewart led the first six circuits before Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason slipped underneath the three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion to lead lap seven. By lap ten, Eliason and Stewart found themselves swallowed up in slower cars, eventually allowing Stewart to close in on Eliason and regain command on lap 13. Unfortunately for Eliason, a tangle with traffic on lap 14 ended his attempt to regain the top spot, eventually spinning to a stop between turns three and four.

McCarl, who was racing just behind the top-two at the time of the caution, utilized the ensuing restart to slip by Stewart to officially lead lap 14. Reutzel, who started eighth on the feature grid, followed McCarl by Stewart to take second on lap 15. An onslaught of slower traffic on lap 18 allowed Reutzel to close in on McCarl, ultimately igniting a fierce battle between the two frontrunners.

Buzzing the topside, Reutzel drove around McCarl to lead lap 20, only to be denied by McCarl the following circuit with a bold move in turns three and four to complete lap 21. Two circuits later, Reutzel was back on top, desperately trying to separate himself from McCarl with only two laps to navigate. Determined to beat the two-time champ, McCarl quickly persevered, slipping underneath Reutzel to lead lap 24, all before the aforementioned “kiss and run” in the final corner on lap 25.

“It was pretty wild there between Aaron and I in traffic,” McCarl continued. “I saw the white flag and he got around me in one. He did a really good job to open up on me coming out of two and chopping me in turns three and four. He just barely left the door open a little bit and I just kinda stuck my nose in there and gave him a little kiss. I was just trying to win the race and I don’t think it was anything Aaron Reutzel wouldn’t have done. I have a ton of respect for him and his team. They are doing a great job.”

Aaron Reutzel crossed under the flagstand second, followed by Danny Dietrich, Tony Stewart, and Paul McMahan.

What’s Next: After four days of travel and rest, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their trek through the central time zone with a visit to Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Oklahoma, on Thursday, June 4, officially commencing the 2020 edition of Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires. The Lawton visit will kick-off three straight days of action in the Sooner State with stops at Red Dirt Raceway and Outlaw Motor Speedway to follow, respectively.

Aaron Reutzel opens 2020 All Star point season with victory at Park Jefferson International Speedway

JEFFERSON, S.D. (May 29, 2020) - Although it has been over three months since the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 last hosted competition, two-time and defending Series champion, Aaron Reutzel, left zero doubt to those in attendance at Park Jefferson International Speedway in Jefferson, South Dakota, that the extended gap in the All Star schedule affected his focus and ability, ultimately ending his evening $6,600 richer, as well as the Series point leader. Including action that did not accumulate championship points in early February, the victory was Reutzel’s third of the 2020 season against the All Stars and the 28th of his career.

Reutzel, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Brothers Trucking/Fischer Body Shop/Ti22/Dissolvalloy/No. 87 sprint car, dominated action during the first-ever All Star appearance at the southeast South Dakota facility, taking command for the first time on lap eight of 25 and immediately blasting away to a impressive lead. Justin Henderson, who earned the pole position by way of dash victory, led the first seven circuits before losing command to Reutzel. With very little real estate to work with, Reutzel’s takeover occurred on the very bottom of the speedway, narrowly squeezing by the Mike Sandvig entry in turn four.

Despite periods of relentless traffic, all circling the bottom groove within Reutzel’s preferred line, the Clute, Texas-native dodged the slower cars with ease, and at one point, placed five lapped cars between himself and Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason, who followed Reutzel beyond Henderson to take the runner-up spot on lap 11.

A caution on lap 19 would give Eliason an opportunity to restart on the tailtank of the two-time and defending champion, but even a fresh start on a slick surface would prove to be unsuccessful. Reutzel eventually slipped away to a near-three-second lead by feature’s end, once again forced to navigate slower cars during the final three circuits.

Eliason held on to finish second, followed by Henderson, Brock Zearfoss, who cleared six positions to finish fourth, and Trey Starks.

“The last time I was here, it was cowboy-up and you had to drive as hard as you could, but tonight it was really slick and technical and that’s how I like it,” Aaron Reutzel explained. “It took me five laps to figure out how to run this place. I really had to open my entry up and pivot around the tires to get going down the straightaways. It was a lot of fun though.

“I’m just glad to be back racing a lot more, and I know the fans here tonight have been waiting for this for a long time,” Reutzel continued. “I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work so far this weekend. Our goal is to come back tomorrow night and do it again. I haven’t figured out how to surrender yet. I want to win every time we unload the car.”

What’s Next: The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their South Dakota visit with a second consecutive start at Park Jefferson International Speedway on Saturday evening, May 30. Like the Friday night preliminary, Saturday’s Park Jefferson main event will award a $6,600 top prize, courtesy of Kevin Rudeen and Trunk Bar.

Devil’s Bowl added to Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires schedule on June 10; Tony Stewart to join All Stars during all nine events

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (May 27, 2020) - Bumping the overall tally from eight to nine, the 2020 edition of Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires featuring the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will now consist of nine events over an 11-day span, as Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, will host the winged warriors on Wednesday evening, June 10. Although not new to All Star Circuit of Champions competition like many of the facilities on the Thunder Through The Plains schedule, it has been over 30 years since the Series last left tracks at Devil’s Bowl Speedway, hosting a doubleheader on March 9-10, 1990.

The Devil’s Bowl program will be the first of five consecutive nights of competition for Tony Stewart’s All Stars, continuing on with stops at Southern Oklahoma Speedway in Ardmore, Oklahoma, on Thursday, June 11, Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls, Texas, on Friday, June 12, Lonestar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas, on Saturday, June 13, and Chatham Speedway in Chatham, Louisiana, on Sunday, June 14.

With only a two-day break separating the first four events from the last five, the Thunder Through The Plains schedule will activate on Thursday, June 4, at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Oklahoma, followed by visits to Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Oklahoma, on Friday, June 5, Outlaw Motor Speedway in Oktaha, Oklahoma, on Saturday, June 6, and 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas, on Sunday, June 7.

Before the Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires schedule can commence, the All Star Circuit of Champions must pass through Park Jefferson International Speedway in Jefferson, South Dakota, on Friday and Saturday, May 29-30. The two-day blockbuster, the first full-point program on the 2020 All Star schedule, will award a total winner’s share equalling $13,200; $6,600-to-win each evening.

Since announcing his plans to join the All Star Circuit of Champions for the Park Jefferson doubleheader, three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee, Tony Stewart, has had time to amend his upcoming schedule, ultimately extending his tour with America’s Series. The Columbus, Indiana-native will now follow the All Star Circuit of Champions during the entire Thunder Through The Plains campaign that extends through June 14.

General admission tickets for each night of the first-ever All Star invasion of Park Jefferson International Speedway are now available for $29. Children 5 and under will be admitted at a discounted price of $5. To comply with the social distancing recommendations upheld by the CDC, ticket purchases will be available online with only a limited number of tickets available.

Earning a combined 25 Series victories during the last two seasons, not including two he has amassed during non-point competition earlier this year, Clute, Texas’s Aaron Reutzel is just one of 11 full-time All Stars expected to hit the road in 2020, all chasing the $65,000 championship prize up for grabs at the end of the year.

In addition, 2019 All Star Circuit of Champions Rookie of the Year, Cory Eliason, will return to the tour full-time, as well as former Port Royal Speedway track champion, Brock Zearfoss, sprint car veteran and multi-time All Star winner, Paul McMahan, former two-time Series champion, Greg Wilson, former ASCS National Rookie of the Year, Skylar Gee, All Star winner and Indiana hotshot, Justin Peck, 2019 PA Sprint Car Series and Williams Grove Speedway champion, Danny Dietrich, Indiana-native and multi-time USAC National Midget Series winner, Zeb Wise, three-time ASCS national champion, Sam Hafertepe, Jr., and Odessa, Texas-native and former ASCS National Tour winner, Josh Baughman.

Tony Stewart will join All Stars during Park Jefferson visit on Friday and Saturday, May 29 & 30

Kevin Rudeen pushes winner’s share to $6,600 each night

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (May 21, 2020) - Eager to battle for a pair of $6,600 top prizes, three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and recent NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee, Tony Stewart, will accompany the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 during their first full-point weekend of the season and visit Jefferson, South Dakota’s Park Jefferson International Speedway on Friday and Saturday, May 29-30. Originally slated to award a pair of $5,000 pay days, the weekend now carries a total winner’s share equaling $13,200, with credit due to Kevin Rudeen of Rudeen Racing.

Tony Stewart is a five-time winner with the traveling All Stars over the course of his storied career, most recently claiming $26,000 during the Rayce Rudeen Foundation event at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, on Sunday, July 28, 2019. The 2020 Rayce Rudeen Foundation race, once again awarding a $26,000 top prize, will be contested at the Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wisconsin, on Thursday, July 30.

Always finding ways to contribute to sprint car racing, Kevin Rudeen decided to beef up the payouts at Park Jefferson International Speedway by adding a $3,000 kick to each night’s feature purse, ultimately bumping the top prizes from $5,000 to $6,500. In addition, the runner-up and third-place finishers on each evening will receive an extra $500, with the fourth and fifth-place finishers on each evening receiving an extra $250.

“I’m just looking forward to seeing sprint cars back on the track on a consistent basis," said Kevin Rudeen. “I hope to be able to get to South Dakota next weekend to watch in person, but if not, I’ll be tuned into FloRacing. I appreciate the efforts of Tony and his team to get the season started.”

Earlier this week, the world-renown Trunk Bar headquartered in Knoxville, Iowa, posted $100 per night bumping the total to $6,600-to-win on Friday and Saturday.

As an added bonus, Kevin Rudeen will also award $250 to each heat race winner at Park Jefferson International Speedway.

“Kevin (Rudeen) has been nothing but supportive of the All Stars for the last two years and the sprint car industry on the whole for many more years," said Tony Stewart. “It was pretty cool winning the inaugural Rayce Rudeen Foundation race last year at 34 Raceway and I look forward to defending the title this year at one of my favorite tracks – Plymouth, WI. I’m really excited that we are getting the season started next weekend with the All Stars. Ten races over a 17-day period beginning with two at Park Jefferson. It’s been a long while since I’ve raced in South Dakota.”

The All Stars will swing through the heartland with stops in Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, and Louisiana on June 4-14

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (May 20, 2020) - With a pair of events already scheduled at Park Jefferson International Speedway on Friday and Saturday, May 29-30, Series competitors will keep their atlases open and keyed in on states west of the Mighty Mississippi, and for the first time during Tony Stewart’s tenure as owner of the traveling All Stars, the Series will invade areas within Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, and Louisiana. The four-state tour will take shape over a 11-day span beginning with a three-pack in the Sooner State and a lone visit to Kansas on Thursday through Sunday, June 4-7.

Dubbed ‘Thunder Through The Plains,’ the All Star trek through Oklahoma and Kansas will ignite with appearances at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Oklahoma, on Thursday, June 4, Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Oklahoma, on Friday, June 5, and the recently reopened Outlaw Motor Speedway in Oktaha, Oklahoma, on Saturday, June 6. Hopping north into the Sunflower State, the All Stars will conclude ‘Thunder Through The Plains’ with a visit to 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas, on Sunday, June 7.

It has been since 2003 when the All Star Circuit of Champions last visited Oklahoma. The now abandoned Tulsa Speedway hosted America’s Series on August 23, 2003, with Sans Souci, New South Wales, Australia’s Brooke Tatnell earning the main event victory. More recently, the ‘Steel City Outlaw’ Tim Shaffer was the last All Star to claim a victory in Kansas, capturing a win at the Belleville High Banks on August 5, 2010.

After a three-day break, All Star action will resume with a three-state, four-race weekend through Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana on Thursday through Sunday, June 11-14. Southern Oklahoma Speedway in Ardmore, Oklahoma, planted just north of the Texas border, will be the first to host All Star Circuit of Champions competition during the second, four-race sweep on Thursday, June 11. Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls, Texas, is next on the list with a visit set for Friday, June 12, followed by one-night stands at Lonestar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas, on Saturday, June 13, and Chatham Speedway in Chatham, Louisiana, on Sunday, June 14.

Adding a few extra pages to All Star Circuit of Champions history books, the appearances at Lawton Speedway, Red Dirt Raceway, Outlaw Motor Speedway, Southern Oklahoma Speedway, Monarch Motor Speedway, Lonestar Speedway, and Chatham Speedway will all be a first-ever for the Tony Stewart-owned organization. Although Louisiana is a new territory for the Series, never visiting the Pelican State during its storied history, the All Stars are certainly no stranger to the Lone Star State, first visiting El Paso in 2004 after sanctioning a two-day stop at Devil’s Bowl in 1990.

With added dates comes schedule changes, and in addition to the already postponed New York swing that was scheduled for June 5-7, Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires set for June 12-20 has also been postponed and tentatively rescheduled for July 3-12. Although an exact schedule has yet to be finalized, events at Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway on July 3-4, as well as at Sharon Speedway on July 11-12, have already been established. All Star and remaining track officials are working together to determine a final layout for the events in between.

Fans seeking additional information pertaining to the Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, and Louisiana road trip, such as gates times, ticket prices, and regulations pertaining to social distancing, should contact each of the respective tracks. The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue to abide by the social distancing recommendations and practices upheld by each state on the schedule.

Kyle Larson goes wire-to-wire to score Jean Lynch Classic presented by Winn-Dixie main event victory at East Bay Raceway Park

TAMPA, Fla. (February 11, 2020) - Certainly synonymous with winning, especially in an open wheel automobile, ‘Yung Money’ Kyle Larson nearly swept Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 action on Tuesday night at East Bay Raceway Park, eventually leading every circuit of the inaugural Jean Lynch Classic presented by Winn-Dixie for a $5,000 payday.

The 30-lap triumph, the product of an outside-front row starting position, was just one portion of Larson’s near-domination to close-out the 2020 All Star Circuit of Champions Florida visit. The Elk Grove, California-native set the evening’s fastest time during qualifying time trials followed by a convincing victory during the second of two dashes.

Capping an East Bay visit that concluded with back-to-back runner-up performances, former World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year Ian Madsen finished second on Tuesday night, followed by Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason, a hard-charging Aaron Reutzel, who advanced ten positions, and ‘Smoke’ Tony Stewart.

“My goal here as of lately was to get to the double-digit win mark in the (NASCAR) off-season and we were able to get number ten here tonight,” Kyle Larson explained, driver of the Paul Silva-owned, Chevrolet Accessories, Finley Farms, No. 57 sprint car. “That’s not a bad stretch of races since Homestead ended. Hopefully we can move on and win a bunch of NASCAR races with Chip Ganassi Racing.”

Untouchable from start to finish, Larson’s only real challenges were in the form of cautions and lapped traffic, with the first caution appearing on lap seven and again on lap 29, ultimately setting up a two-lap dash to the finish. Needless to say, the momentum shifts proved to be no harm to the familiar No. 57, keeping KCP Racing’s Ian Madsen in the rearview mirror the entire distance even when traffic hit its peak during a 22-lap green flag stretch that extended until lap 29. The caution with two circuits remaining erased a near-five second advantage for Larson.

“I just felt good all night long and it’s really fun to have a car like that. I was actually looking forward to traffic because I knew I had such a good car,” Larson said, who now owns ten All Star Circuit of Champions victories. “I really didn’t want to see that last caution because the pace started to slow down in three and four and I was lapping guys around the bottom. You never know where second is, so you gotta figure they would probably go where I wasn’t. I was planning on going to the bottom so I was hoping they wouldn’t get around me. It all worked out great.

“It has been a struggle the last week or so,” Larson continued. “So it feels good to come to East Bay and be really good.”

What’s Next:
With Florida action complete, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will turn their attention toward Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, where the Series will take part in a Spring Nationals doubleheader on Friday and Saturday, April 10 & 11. The two-day program will award a pair of $5,000 top prizes and officially kick-off the 2020 All Star Circuit of Champions point chase.

Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1

 

Aaron Reutzel scores second consecutive All Star victory with Winn-Dixie triumph at East Bay Raceway Park

TAMPA, Fla. (February 10, 2020) - Despite the entire Florida campaign not accumulating points toward the overall Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 championship, if Florida results could give any indication on how the 2020 All Star title chase will unfold, Clute, Texas’ Aaron Reutzel is a surefire favorite to earn the $65,000 top prize, ultimately increasing his consecutive championship run to three.

Now with two consecutive All Star victories in the Sunshine State, the first occurring during Volusia Speedway Park’s DIRTcar Nationals on Thursday, February 6, Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports’ Aaron Reutzel continued his Florida dominance with a convincing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Winn-Dixie victory at East Bay Raceway Park on Monday evening, February 10, taking command for the first time on lap three before escaping from the rest of the field to snag the $5,000 payday. In addition, the win was Reutzel’s 27th during Series competition, doing so from sixth on the grid.

“We kinda picked up right where we left off last year. Whenever you’re running that good at the end of the year, you don’t want the year to end. Momentum can change and you can never be too sure how the next year is going to start,” Aaron Reutzel explained, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Brothers Trucking/Fischer Body Shop/Dissolvalloy/No. 87 sprint car. “Even when we had the opportunity to practice last week, I told the guys I didn’t want to practice. I just wanted to head into race night like it was another race from last year.”

A takeover that proved to be just as impressive as the driver performing it, Reutzel’s bid for the lead on lap three consisted of two parts, the first segment being a slingshot move around the outer edge of the speedway in turns one and two to power by three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, Tony Stewart. Reutzel’s maneuver in the first two corners was soon followed by a dive through turns three and four to sneak by Brian Brown for the top spot. The multi-time Knoxville Raceway track champion led the first two circuits.

Reutzel went on to race unchallenged throughout the remaining distance, easily navigating through slower traffic while Tony Stewart, Cory Eliason, Ian Madsen and Brian Brown all jockeyed for position. Climbing ahead from eighth, Madsen eventually settled into second on lap 18 and desperately attempted to track down the two-time champion during the second half of the 30-lap program. The effort was present, but the gap was too much to overcome, even in late stages of traffic. Reutzel lapped all but the top 11 cars and, at one point, maintained a near-five second advantage. The final margin of victory equalled 2.5 seconds.

“The track was phenomenal tonight. I’d love to see a race track like that the entire time we are here,” Reutzel continued. “That was a lot of fun. I can’t thank my team enough for what they do for me. I wouldn’t be where I am today without their hard work and dedication.”

Following Reutzel and Madsen to the line were Cory Eliason, Tony Stewart and Chad Kemenah, who advanced four spots to secure his top-five performance. On a special note, Aaron Reutzel is now the second Texan to score an All Star Circuit of Champions main event victory at East Bay Raceway Park, now joining Gary Wright on the Florida wins list.

What’s Next:
With one night of Winn-Dixie action in the books, Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their 2020 Florida vacation, officially, with one final visit to East Bay Raceway Park on Tuesday, February 11. Dubbed the All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Winn-Dixie, the East Bay All Star finale will award a $5,000 top prize.

Aaron Reutzel scores Thursday night DIRTcar Nationals victory for first-ever All Star win at Volusia Speedway Park

BARBERVILLE, Fla. (February 6, 2020) - Unrattled by a Wednesday night performance that concluded with a sixth place finish during the evening’s consolation B-Main, two-time and defending Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 champion Aaron Reutzel was the class of the field on Thursday evening at Volusia Speedway Park, concluding the All Star segment of the 2020 DIRTcar Nationals with a victory; the 26th of Aaron Reutzel’s career and a first-ever Series win at the ‘World’s Fastest Half Mile Dirt Track.’

Defending World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Brad Sweet, finished second on Thursday night, followed by Ian Madsen, Donny Schatz and James McFadden.

“We do a lot in the off-season to try and make our cars better and better. I just can’t thank my guys enough,” Aaron Reutzel said, who amassed a Series-leading 16 victories in 2019. “Dylan Buswell is with us now because Cheeseburger is gone. He went home to better his career and you can’t blame someone for wanting to do that. This is just another testament to this team. We missed the A-Main last night but we came back with redemption tonight.”

Reutzel, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Brothers Trucking/Fischer Body Shop/Nattress Construction/No. 87 sprint car, earned his $5,000 top prize from the inside of the second row, eventually working his way around front row starter and Wednesday night winner, Brad Sweet, with a diving move in turns one and two on lap eight, all before powering under race leader, Ian Madsen, in turn four on lap 16. A lapped car, which caused Madsen to slip out of his desired groove, aided Reutzel’s attempt.

Despite an abrasive surface ultimately leading to a thin, but ultra-fast racing groove, Reutzel never faltered, maintaining command, as well as his composure, even as tire wear started to become an obvious threat during the later stages of the 25-lap program.

Adding to the drama already assembling due to tire concern, cautions started to flood the main event with just four circuits remaining. In fact, caution lights appeared on lap 22 and again on lap 24, each for right-rear flats, ultimately setting up a green-white-checkered finish. In spite of concern, and a right-rear lacking tread, Reutzel persevered.

“The first couple of laps, I just kinda judged myself with everyone else. I could see Brad [Sweet] was moving around and he was pretty good, too. I eventually found the rubber and Brad found it at the same time, but luckily I was able to find it a little before he did,” Aaron Reutzel continued. “I eventually ran up on Ian [Madsen]. I thought I was running a pretty smart race but I think I got to Ian a little too quickly because he ended up seeing me and moving down on me. Regardless, it all ended up playing out in our favor. I was just trying to be as patient as I could.”

Brad Sweet opens 2020 Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 season with DIRTcar Nationals victory at Volusia Speedway Park

BARBERVILLE, Fla. (February 5, 2020) - Officially activating the 2020 Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 season, Grass Valley, California’s Brad Sweet earned himself another Gator Trophy in the Sunshine State, this time climbing ahead two spots to clinch the DIRTcar Nationals sprint car opening night victory on Wednesday evening at Volusia Speedway Park. The win, the fifth of Sweet’s career during All Star Circuit of Champions competition, secured the defending World of Outlaws champion a $5,000 payday; his second All Star triumph in as many seasons at the 'World’s Fastest Half-Mile Dirt Track.’

Ian Madsen, a former World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Rookie of the Year, chased Sweet to the final checkers, followed by Cory Eliason, a hard charging Kyle Larson from 14th, and James McFadden.

“I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work this off season,” Brad Sweet said, driver of the NAPA Auto Parts, Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb, Team ASE, Factory Kahne, No. 49 sprint car. “Anytime you can roll out of the box and win is pretty special. It’s extra special with my daughter and wife here. It’s pretty neat to begin the year like this.”

Despite not taking command for the first time until lap 14, and dropping as far back as fifth after a restart due to caution on lap two, Sweet was a factor the entire 25-lap distance. Utilizing patience and finesse, the ‘Big Cat’ powered his way around Tim Shaffer to secure fourth on lap four, all before executing a perfect slider between turns three and four to regain third over James McFadden on lap six. Meanwhile, 2019 All Star Rookie of the Year Cory Eliason was at the front of the field, maintaining control while Ian Madsen kept a strong pace in the runner-up position. Madsen eventually moved by Eliason to take command on lap seven, using slower cars to help maneuver around the Rudeen Racing entry.

Also not deterred by slower cars, Sweet made his first bid for second on lap 12, relying on a familiar slider through turns three and four to hopefully secure his fate. Unfortunately, Sweet’s move was unsuccessful, ultimately forced to settle back into third. Two circuits later, Sweet was once again in a position to pounce, this time moving around Eliason before beating Madsen in a drag race back to the flagstand to officially lead lap 14. Sweet’s margin at the line was a mere-.023 seconds.

From that point forward, it was all Sweet at the front of the field, keeping Ian Madsen and Cory Eliason at bay the final 11 circuits to win by .9 seconds.

“Anytime you win, it’s fun. It was a great race,” Brad Sweet continued. “I was really searching for a line in three and four. The grease would go away, then someone would come by and splash up some water. It really altered the complexity of the race. You really had to be mindful of which lines you were taking and what was happening with the race track. My car could run up top, but it was definitely better on the bottom.”

What’s Next:
The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their 2020 campaign with a second consecutive DIRTcar Nationals start on Thursday evening, February 6. Although sprint car competition will continue at the DIRTcar Nationals through Sunday, February 9, the All Stars will end their visit on Thursday, once again battling for a $5,000 top prize.

The Series will conclude their 2020 Florida vacation with a pair of East Bay Raceway Park starts on Monday and Tuesday, February 10-11. Dubbed the All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Winn-Dixie, the East Bay double will award a pair of $5,000 paydays. Fans should visit East Bay online at www.ebrp.co for additional inform
