The Knoxville Raceway Safety Team was recognized, and received the quarterly National Motorsports Press Association “Pocono Spirit Award” for character and achievement in the face of adversity. The award in particular, was due to their heroic efforts in the Carson Macedo crash in June.

Bob Baker, the Executive Director of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum, presented the “Ralph Capitani Heritage Award” to longtime Knoxville Raceway and National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum supporter, Don Long, who has been instrumental in not only those foundations, but many of the drivers at Knoxville over the years.

The "Lyle Boyd Hard Charger Award" awards the drivers who passed the most cars in A main events this season. AJ Johnson received the award in the Pro Series class, with Chase Randall (360) and Davey Heskin (410) receiving the award in their respective classes.

Tasker Phillips was named the “Most Improved Driver” in the 410 class, while Cam Martin picked up the honor in the 360 class. Chase Young won the award in the Pro Series class.

AJ Johnson (Pro Series), Garet Williamson (360), and Lachlan McHugh (410) were named “Rookie of the Year” in their respective classes.

The big hardware went out last to the top five drivers in the Knoxville Championship Cup Series point standings. In the Pro Series class, AJ Johnson (5th), Mike Mayberry (4th), Matt Allen (3rd), Chase Young (2nd) and Kade Higday (champion) were honored. It was Higday’s first career championship.

In the 360 class, Ryan Giles (5th), Clint Garner (4th) Jamie Ball (3rd), Garet Williamson (2nd) and Chase Randall (first-time champion) were honored.

9/8/23

Port Royal Speedway

Port Royal, PA

Night Before the Tuscarora 50

All Stars

48 cars

Drivers were divided into five heat groups for qualifying. The track did not go away with Zeb Wise, the 47th car out to time setting quick time in the fifth group and overall at 16.600 seconds on the half-mile. Cory Eliason (16.831) set quick time in the first group, Parker Price-Miller (16.911) in the second, Devon Borden (16.660) in the third and Tyler Courtney (16.633) in the fourth. Cory Thornton did not get a time in, and Ryan Smith got just one.

Heat one (started): 1. Lance Dewease 39m (1) 2. Kerry Madsen 55 (2) 3. Danny Dietrich 48 (5) 4. Eliason 11 (4) / 5. Mike Wagner 55w (6) 6. Freddie Rahmer 51 (3) 7. Kody Lehman 47K (8) / 8. Jeff Halligan 45H (7) 9. Brent Shearer 12s (9) 10. Cory Thornton 2c (10)

8 lap heats took the heat winner, and the group’s quickest qualifier (if they didn’t win the heat) to the Dash. The top four locked into the feature, and fifth through seventh to the B. All the rest went to the C. Dewease led the distance with Madsen in tow. Eliason was third early, ahead of Dietrich and Rahmer. M. Wagner passed Rahmer for fifth on lap two. Thornton slowed to bring a caution at that point. Dietrich snatched third from Eliason on the restart. M. Wagner was also pressuring Eliason for the final transfer, and passed him with three to go. Eliason came back, however, in a good battle.

Heat two (started): 1. Price-Miller 9P (4) 2. Steve Buckwalter 17B (2) 3. Justin Peck 13 (1) 4. Ryan Smith 6 (6) / 5. Ryan Taylor 20 (5) 6. Conner Morrell 28m (3) 7. Blane Heimbach 12 (9) / 8. Brie Hershey 97H (8) 9. Devin Adams 99 (10) 10. Devin Brenneman 36D (7)

Peck was penalized on the initial start for jumping. Price-Miller had an exceptional start and shot to the lead from outside row two at the outset. Buckwalter, Peck and Smith followed. Brenneman suffered a flat right rear two laps in.

Heat three (started): 1. Aaron Retuzel 8 (1) 2. Dylan Cisney 5 (2) 3. Borden 23 (4) 4. Sye Lynch 42 (3) / 5. Garrett Bard 95 (7) 6. Lucas Wolfe 5w (6) 7. Kyle Reinhardt 45 (5) / 8. Jonathan Preston 21P (8) 9. Zach Hampton 35 (9) 10. Cole Young 17 (10)

The track had plenty of character and multiple grooves. Cisney led most of the way with Reutzel trying everything to get by for good. Reutzel finally snuck by on the outside in the last corner to win it and head for the dash. You could throw a blanket over Borden, Lynch and Reinhardt for third through fifth.

Heat four (started): 1. Courtney 7BC (4) 2. Brent Marks 19 (1) 3. Hunter Schuerenberg 1 (2) 4. Anthony Macri 71 (5) / 5. Kraig Kinser 70 (7) 6. Derek Hauck 33 (9) 7. Austin Bishiop 35B (3) / 8. Lynton Jeffrey 77 (8) 9. Jarrett Cavalet 98 (6)

Courtney dominated, shooting to the lead right away from outside row two. Marks closed late, however, and fell just shot of catching him.

Heat five (started): 1. Logan Wagner 69K (2) 2. Wise 26 (4) 3. TJ Stutts 11T (6) 4. Gerard McIntyre Jr. 33m (7) / 5. Brian Brown 21 (1) 6. Chris Windom 4 (3) 7. Sam Hafertepe Jr. 15H (5) / 8. Brandon Spithaler 97 (8) 9. Carl Bowser 29 (9)

Brown was penalized a row on the initial start. L. Wagner led Wise, Stutts, Brown and McIntyre early. McIntyre threw a slider on Brown in turn four on lap three to take the final transfer. Spithaler got into the wall on lap three to bring the only caution.

C main (started): 1. Halligan (1) 2. Preston (3) / 3. Spithaler (2) 4. Adams (9) 5. Shearer (10) 6. Jeffrey (5) 7. Bowser (7) 8. Hampton (8) 9. Cavalet (6) 10. Brenneman (11) 11. Young (12) 12. Thornton (13) 13. Hershey (4)

The 10-lapper saw the top two transfer to the B. Halligan led the distance. Preston passed Spithaler for the second transfer on lap two.

Dash (started): 1. Reutzel (1) 2. Wise (4) 3. Eliason (2) 4. Courtney (6) 5. Price-Miller (8) 6. Borden (5) 7. Dewease (7) 8. L. Wagner (3)

The 6-lapper set up the first four rows of the feature. Reutzel led early over Eliason, while Wise and Courtney battled tooth and nail for third. Wise eventually won that battle, and passed Eliason for second.

B main (started): 1. Brown (1) 2. M. Wagner (3) 3. Kinser (6) 4. Taylor (4) / 5. Bishop (2) 6. Heimbach (15) 7. Wolfe (9) 8. Hafertepe (12) 9. Rahmer (7) 10. Reinhardt (13) 11. Preston (17) 12. Lehman (14) 13. Halligan (16) 14. Windom (8) 15. Hauck (11) 16. Morrell (10) 17. Bard (5)

The 12-lapper sent the top four to the feature. Brown led the distance with M. Wagner in tow. Taylor grabbed third from Biship on lap two. Kinser followed him into the final transfer on lap six, and then passed Taylor for third with two to go.

A main (started): 1. Courtney (4) 2. Dewease (7) 3. Wise (2) 4. L. Wagner (8) 5. Eliason (3) 6. Price-Miller (5) 7. Dietrich (15) 8. Marks (9) 9. Cisney (11) 10. Madsen (10) 11. McIntyre (19) 12. Stuffs (16) 13. M. Wagner (22) 14. Halligan (26, prov.) 15. Peck (14) 16. Lynch (18) 17. Brown (21) 18. Smith (20) 19. Buckwalter (12) 20. Kinser (23) 21. Reinhardt (27, prov.) 22. Taylor (24) 23. Schuerenberg (13) 24. Borden (6) 25. Reutzel (1) 26. Macri (17) 27. Lehman (28, prov.) 28. Windom (25, prov.)

The 30-lapper saw Wise lead early over Courtney, Reutzel, Eliason and Borden. Price-Miller got Borden for fifth on lap five. Wise hit lapped traffic on lap eight. Reutzel worked by Courtney for second on lap nine. Borden got going again and moved from sixth to fourth by lap 10. On lap 11, a three-way battle for the lead was intense. Reutzel and Courtney worked by Wise at that point. L. Wagner worked into the top five by lap 12. Wise dueled Courtney for the second spot on lap 14. The halfway point saw Schuerenberg with a flat right rear bringing caution. The restart saw Reutzel ahead of Wise, Courtney, Borden and L. Wagner. The restart saw Macri get into the turn four wall. He was done. Courtney had passed Wise, but that was negated by the caution. He would make that pass on the low side on lap 17. L. Wagner passed Borden for fourth on lap 18. Courtney reeled in Reutzel and passed him low in turn four with ten to go to take the point. L. Wagner passed both Wise and Reutzel for second on lap 24 as he flexed his late muscles. Meanwhile, Dewease was on fire and out of nowhere as well. He snatched second from Wagner with four to go when a caution flew for the fourth running Reutzel, who blew his right rear tire and collected the sixth running Borden. Both were done. Courtney was able to hold off Dewease for the win and a lock into Saturday’s Tusky.

Aaron Reutzel Dominates for $6,000 at Knoxville; Austin McCarl is the Champ!

Chase Randall, Kade Higday Win Feature and Titles in 360’s and Pros

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 26, 2023) – On McKay Insurance Season Championship Night at Knoxville Raceway, three champions were crowned. Aaron Reutzel was dominant in his win in the 410 class netting $5,000 and a $1,000 bonus for his win. Austin McCarl finished third but clinched his second season title in the 410 class at Knoxville. Chase Randall (fourth career 360 win) and Kade Higday (eighth career win) won their respective features in the 360 and Pro Sprints classes, cementing their first track championships in their respective divisions. Mason Mitchell was a first-time Knoxville winner with the Dirt Truck Racing Association.

The 25-lap 410 feature had a couple of ugly starts. Tasker Phillips spun on the first try, collecting his brother Sawyer in the process. The second try saw a nasty flip by Kade Higday. He was uninjured. The third try was not a charm either. Lynton Jeffrey flipped violently in turn three, collecting both Riley Goodno and Ben Brown. Jeffrey and Brown walked away, but Goodno was taken to the hospital for observation.

Once underway, Zach Hampton took the early lead ahead of Dusty Zomer and Lachlan McHugh. Reutzel was a big mover, starting tenth, and moving into the top five on the second lap. After McHugh took second from Zomer, both Reutzel and Brian Brown moved into the top four in getting by Zomer on lap four.

Reutzel rode the cushion around McHugh for second on lap eight, and on the following circuit, slid by Hampton in the same spot to take the point for good. He was in traffic by lap 11, and had built a 4.2 second lead with ten laps to go. Austin McCarl was surging as well, getting by Brown for fourth at that stage.

McHugh passed Hampton for the second spot on lap 18 before Tasker Phillips spun in turn two. Phillips had come from the rear to seventh. On the restart, McCarl and Brown passed Hampton for third and fourth. Up front, Reutzel was cruising.

Reutzel’s ninth career 410 win here came ahead of McHugh, who had a career best finish, McCarl, and Chase Randall who got by Brown late. Hampton, Ayrton Gennetten, Brandon Wimmer, Garet Williamson and Davey Heskin rounded out the top ten. Brown set quick time over the 35-car field, while Tasker Phillips, Dustin Selvage, Zomer and Randall won heats. Williamson won the B.

“(Winning at Knoxville) means more to me now than anything in my career,” said Reutzel in Victory Lane. “This is what I like to do now is race around home. Being with my family and not being on the road. We like to race here and go pick and choose other races. The car was phenomenal in the A main. I couldn’t believe how good we were sliding in the middle…we had grip the whole time. I could run the top hard. You don’t usually drive from tenth to the lead like we did. It’s just fun when it’s that way.”

Cam Martin led early in the 20-lap 360 main event over Chase Randall, Ryan Giles, Jamie Ball and Tyler Groenendyk. Alex Vande Voort spun two laps in. That set up a restart, and Randall stuck the bottom of turn four to take the point, while Ball moved into third, and Sammy Swindell fifth.

Martin’s second place run ended when he blew a left rear tire on lap six. The restart saw Ball, who inherited second, take a shot at Randall, who squeezed between the sprinter and the wall in turn two. Shortly after, Dustin Clark got into the turn four wall to bring another caution.

Randall maintained his lead over Ball and Giles. Garet Williamson took over fourth from Swindell on lap eight. Carson McCarl was on the move, going from the 18th starting spot to sixth, and passing Swindell for fifth on the last lap. Swindell, Davey Heskin, Terry McCarl, Groenendyk and Ryan Leavitt completed the top ten. Groenendyk set quick time over the 35-car field, while Williamson, Dustin Selvage, Timothy Smith and Swindell won heats, and Tony Rost won the B main.

“We’ve been working so hard for this all year long,” said Randall of his 360 title. “We came here with one goal and that was the championship. Every day, every week that we put in at the shop was for this moment. To be standing up here is unbelievable. I have an incredible crew behind me. Everything we did last year that we brought into this year had a whole new meaning.”

Brandon Worthington led the 18-lap Pro Sprints feature over Matthew Stelzer, Ryan Navratil, Kade Higday and Chase Young early in the going. Navratil used the high side to pass Stelzer for second on lap two, and Higday and Casey Friedrichsen followed him by the following circuit.

Worthington spun out of the lead, bringing a caution three laps in. Navratil inherited the lead, but Higday put a slider on him immediately when the green flew and pulled away. Another caution came out when Toby Mosher stopped in turn two five laps in. At the same time, Stelzer came to a stop on the frontstretch.

Higday led Navratil, Friedrichsen, Young and Mike Mayberry back to green. AJ Johnson was the charger. He entered the top five after starting 13th, then took fourth from Young on lap nine, and third from Friedrichsen on lap ten. Higday entered lapped traffic on lap 12 before Stelzer broke a front end and crashed into the infield wall on the frontstretch with five laps to go. He was uninjured.

Higday pulled away on the restart, while Johnson cruised into second, followed by a late closing J Kinder, Navratil and Friedrichsen. Mayberry, Josh Jones, Worthington, Young and Matt Allen rounded out the top ten. Scotty Johnson made his first start of the year and set quick time. Young and Kinder won the heats.

“This year has been pretty spectacular to me,” said Higday of his championship. “It seems like we’ve had a bad five or six years here. It feels good to get a win on championship night here. We had it locked up before that feature, but I told my guys we were not losing that race. It’s been the busiest racing season we’ve had.”

Mason Mitchell led the 15-lap DTRA truck feature early over Brandon Cox, Jeff Johnson, Shonn Mapes and Jared Myers. Cox took the lead for himself on lap two before Del Enos and Shaun Clinger spun on the backstretch to bring the only caution.

Mitchell rode Cox’s bumper the majority of the way, looking for an opening. On the final lap, he got between the leader and the infield berm in turn four to edge ahead and take his first win here. Following Mitchell and Cox were hard-charger, Brandon Toftee, Johnson, Myers, Shawn Cooney, Rick Clark, Mapes, Clinger, Enos and Terry May.

“I don’t know what to say right now,” said Mitchell of his win. “I appreciate the fans. I’ve been thinking about this for a long time. This is the pinnacle of dirt track racing. I’m very fortunate and blessed to be doing what I love.”

32 cars

Drivers were split into two groups for qualifying. Brenham Crouch (11th car out in the group) set quick time in the first group and overall on the 3/8-mile at 12.961 seconds. Austin McCarl (5th car out) was second quick, followed by Sawyer Phillips (6th), Austin Hartmann (15th) and Danny Schlafer (4th). Aaron Reutzel (7th car out) set quick time in the second group, followed by Brandon Wimmer (6th), Jordan Goldesberry (11th), Will Armitage (5th) and Dave Uttech (2nd).

Heat one (started): 1. Schlafer 25 (2) 2. Scott Neitzel 2w (1) 3. Crouch 1 (4) 4. Phillips 3P (3) 5. Tyler Duff 9 (5) / 6. Kris Spitz 4K (6) 7. Cole Mincer 15 (7) DNS – Josh Schneiderman 49

8-lap heats transferred the top five to the feature, and the winner and the three best qualifiers not winning the heat in each qualifying group. Schneiderman pulled off right before the heat began. Schlafer led Neitzel for the distance. Crouch used the low side of turn two to take third from Phillips on lap two. Duff held off Spitz and Mincer in a good battle for the final transfer.

Heat two (started): 1. Zach Hampton 35 (2) 2. Paul Nienhiser 50 (1) 3. McCarl 88 (4) 4. Kevin Newton 16TH (5) 5. Tyler Lee 7 (6) / 6. Ion Steer 19CW (7) 7. William Huck 39V (8) 8. Hartmann 87A (3)

Hampton went wire to wire ahead of Nienhiser and McCarl. Newton grabbed fifth from Lee on lap two, but both would end up in transfer spots as Hartmann crashed hard while running fourth on the final lap. He was uninjured.

Heat three (started): 1. Riley Goodno 22 (1) 2. Reutzel 8 (4) 3. Uttech 68 (2) 4. Goldesberry 65 (3) 5. Joel Myers Jr. 46JR (6) / 6. Jake Neuman 3N (5) 7. Jack Vanderboom U2 (7) 8. Jack Conger 24 (8)

Little changed in the top four, but the battle was on for the final transfer. Neuman held it most of the way, but a three-way battle raged for the spot between he, Myers and Vanderboom. Myers would claim it on the last lap.

Heat four (started): 1. Jake Blackhurst 96 (2) 2. Wimmer 6 (4) 3. Armitage 7A (3) 4. Travis Arenz 25T (1) 5. Russel Borland 23 (7) / 6. Kyle Schuett 9K (5) 7. Tyler Tischendorf 26 (6) 8. McCain Richards 31 (8)

Blackhurst led the distance. Tischendorf held the fifth and final transfer early, but Schuett and Borland were all over him. Schuett took the spot on lap three, only to have Borland get under him with three to go using the low side of turn two.

Dash #1 (started): 1. McCarl (2) 2. Schlafer (4) 3. Crouch (1) 4. Hampton (5) 5. Phillips (3)

The 4-lap Dash set up the feature lineup inside rows one through five. McCarl led green to checker, while Schlafer got by Crouch to snag second on the final lap.

Dash #2 (started): 1. Reutzel (3) 2. Blackhurst (1) 3. Wimmer (2) 4. Goldesberry (5) 5. Goodno (4)

Blackhurst led early before Reutzel passed him on the high side of turn two on lap two.

B main (started): 1. Schneiderman (1) 2. Vanderboom (6) 3. Schuett (2) 4. Neuman (9) / 5. Stear (3) 6. Mincer (7) 7. Tischendorf (4) 8. Conger (8) 9. Spitz (5) 10. Richards (10) DNS – Huck, Hartmann

The 10-lap B took the top four to the feature. Schneiderman led Schuett, Tischendorf and Vanderboom early. Vanderboom, passed Tischendorf on the high side on lap two for third. Neuman had worked his way from the tail to pass Tischendorf for the final transfer spot by the third lap. Vanderboom, passed Schuett for second on the white flag lap.

A main (started): 1. Reutzel (2) 2. Wimmer (6) 3. McCarl (1) 4. Hampton (7) 5. Crouch (5) 6. Nienhiser (13) 7. Goldesberry (8) 8. Blackhurst (4) 9. Arenz (16) 10. Goodno (10) 11. Schlafer (3) 12. Armitage (12) 13. Borland (20) 14. Neitzel (11) 15. Schneiderman (21) 16. Neuman (24) 17. Lee (19) 18. Schuett (23) 19. Vanderboom (22) 20. Phillips (9) 21. Duff (17) 22. Uttech (14) 23. Newton (15) 24. Myers Jr. (18)

Reutzel led McCarl, Schlafer, Wimmer and Crouch early in the 30-lapper. Schlafer passed McCarl to take over second on lap two. McCarl returned the favor, driving back under Schlafer on lap six. Wimmer was committed to the top and passed Schlaffer for third on the next circuit. Reutzel entered lapped traffic on lap nine. At the halfway point, McCarl pulled to Reutzel’s rear bumper. Reutzel turned on the juice in traffic. Wimmer was also on McCarl’s tail and passed him for second with two to go, just before the caution came out or a stopped Myers Jr. A green, white, checker finish saw Wimmer with momentum on the leader. Coming off the turn four cushion coming for the white flag, Reutzel slid from bottom to top. Wimmer made pretty heavy contact with him, but both continued to finish in that order, followed by McCarl.

 

 

Kokomo Smackdown Night #1
Thursday, August 24, 2023
 

Kokomo Speedway
Kokomo, IN

USAC National Sprint Car Series

46 cars

It was a sultry night at Kokomo! The humidity was at a high level and kept the track tacky all night. Drivers have an eye on points as they get their best point total from either Thursday or Friday to line them up for Saturday.

Robert Ballou (5th car out to time) set quick time on the quarter-mile at 12.900 seconds. Brady Bacon (44th car out) was second quick, followed by Logan Seavey (24th), Chase Stockon (6th), Emerson Axsom (40th), CJ Leary (17th), Matt Westfall (45th), Max Adams (38th), Justin Grant (39th) and Jake Swanson (3rd). Kevin Thomas Jr. timed well enough for second quick, but was light at the scales.

Heat one (started): 1. Shane Cottle 2E (1) 2. Daison Pursley 5P (3) 3. Grant 4 (4) 4. Ballou 12 (6) / 5. Kayla Roell 5K (2) 6. Wyatt Burks 11w (9) 7. Geoff Ensign 17 (8) 8. Devan Myers 75 (11) 9. Jack Hoyer 5 (12) 10. Cole Bodine 57B (7) 11. Larry Kingseed Jr. 21 (10) 12. Axsom 47BC (5)

10-lap heats took the top four to the feature. Before a lap could get in, Ballou got into the back of Grant, and collected Kingseed, Ensign and Bodine. All continued. On the second try, Axsom clipped the turn four infield tire and destroyed his car on the frontstretch. He came back later with a backup. Cottle led the distance, with Pursley and Grant in tow. Burks held the final transfer early, until Ballou recovered from the tail to grab it on lap three.

Heat two (started): 1. Joey Amantea 88J (1) 2. Korbyn Hayslett 1H (2) 3. Leary 15x (5) 4. Bacon 69 (6) / 5. Briggs Danner 39 (3) 6. Swanson 21AZ (4) 7. Kevin Thomas Jr. 42 (12) 8. Brandon Mattox 28 (7) 9. Jadon Robers 17GP (8) 10. Kobe Simpson 21K (10) 11. Eddie Tafoya Jr. 51T (9) 12. Troy Carey 45N (11)

Hayslett led lap one, but Amantea took early control and won going away. Bacon used the middle of turn four to pass Danner for third on lap two. Leary followed him into the fourth and final transfer on lap four, and then snuck by Bacon for third on the last lap.

Heat three (started): 1. Rylan Gray 81G (1) 2. Trey Osborne 6T (3) 3. Ricky Lewis 41 (2) 4. Kyle Cummins 3R (4) / 5. Seavey 2B (6) 6. Westfall 33m (5) 7. Sterling Cling 34 (8) 8. Nate Schank 1 (7) 9. Brayden Clark 41G (10) 10. Jack James 99 (11) 11. Riley Kreisel 2 (9)

Kreisel biked and suffered a flat left rear ending his race on lap one. Gray led the distance. Lewis, Cummins and Seavey completed the top four early. Cummins bobbled on lap two, letting Seavey and Osborne into transfer spots. Osborne, an impressive rookie who towed in on a flatbed, then passed Seavey low in four to gain third. He then passed Lewis with two to go for second. At the same time, Cummins passed Seavey for the final transfer.

Heat four (started): 1. Carson Garrett 15 (4) 2. Colten Cottle 57 (2) 3. Adams 5x (5) 4. Dave Darland 36D (8) / 5. Chance Crum 26 (3) 6. Zack Pretorius 9z (7) 7. Dustin Ingle 2DI (10) 8. Bryar Schroeter 21s (11) 9. Stevie Sussex 77s (9) 10. Mitchel Moles 19AZ (1) 11. Stockon 5s (6)

With a lap in the books, Stockon and Moles came together ending in a nasty flip for Moles. He was uninjured, but both were done. C. Cottle led early over Garrett, Crum, Adams and Darland. At the halfway point, Garrett slid in front of Cottle to lead in turn two. Adams took third from Crum at the white flag, and then Darland worked by for the final transfer on the last lap in a good three-way battle for two spots.

C main (started): 1. Rogers (1) 2. Cling (2) 3. Thomas Jr. (16) 4. Burks (3) / 5. Kreisel (5) 6. Tafoya (4) 7. Sussex (6) 8. Simpson (8) 9. Myers (11) 10. Carey (12) 11. Hoyer (15) 12. Ingle (10) 13. Clark (9) 14. James (13) 15. Schroeter (14) 16. Kingseed (7)

The 10-lapper saw the top four head to the B. Rogers set the pace throughout, ahead of Cling. Tafoya grabbed third from Burks on lap four, but almost spun out on lap five allowing Burks and Kreisel into transfer spots. At the same time, Thomas was on the move from the tail, putting four wheels above the cushion. He grabbed fifth, and on lap eighth surged from fifth to third before a caution flew setting up a green, white, checker finish that saw no changes.

B main (started): 1. Stockon (2) 2. Seavey (1) 3. Swanson (4) 4. Danner (5) 5. Westfall (3) 6. Bodine (8) / 7. Rogers (13) 8. Mattox (9) 9. Roell (7) 10. Cling (14) 11. Thomas Jr. (15) 12. Schank (10) 13. Crum (6) 14. Axsom (17) 15. Ensign (12) 16. Burks (16) 17. Pretorius (11) DNS – Moles

The 12-lapper saw the top four advance to the feature. There was no passing in the top six after lap one on a track that was still heavy and lent to the bottom.

A main (started): 1. Grant (2) 2. Bacon (5) 3. Ballou (6) 4. Garrett (7) 5. Rogers (24, prov.) 6. Leary (4) 7. S. Cottle (8) 8. Danner (16) 9. Amantea (9) 10. Cummins (1) 11. Axsom (23, prov.) 12. Stockon (12) 13. Seavey (11) 14. Swanson (14) 15. Lewis (19) 16. Adams (3) 17. Bodine (21) 18. Westfall (13) 19. Gray (10) 20. Hayslett (18) 21. Darland (22) 22. Pursley (15) 23. Osborne (17) 24. C. Cottle (20)

Adams and Hayslett were penalized one row for being late to staging for the 30-lapper. Swanson had issues and went to the work area, restarting at the tail. A first lap incident saw Seavey, Westfall, Osborne, Darland and C. Cottle piled up. Osborne (fronte end) and C. Cottle were done. Seavey changed a left rear tire. Grant led early over Cummings, Leary, Bacon and Garrett. Bacon passed Leary for third on lap two. Pursley slowed four laps in to bring the only caution. Grant led Cummins, Bacon, Garrett and Lary back to green. Second through fourth were in close quarters most of the way, but the show was watching Rogers come from the tail after taking a provisional. He was the only driver dedicated to putting all four tires in the fluff high above the cushion, and he was driving by people. By lap ten, he was into the top ten. Grant was in lapped traffic by the halfway point, with Cummins and Bacon in tow. Bacon put a slider on Cummins to take over second with six to go. By that time, Grant had checked out. Bacon held onto second, while Cummins slowed with a couple of laps to go. Ballou and Garrett moved into third and fourth, while Rogers continued his hard-charger run by finishing in the top five.

The 10-lapper took the top four to the B. I. Madsen led wire to wire. Macri put a slider on Gass in turn four for second on lap two as the track began to widen.

Dash (started): 1. Price (1) 2. Kofoid (3) 3. Mullen (4) 4. Reutzel (2) 5. Abreu (6) 6. K. Madsen (5) 7. Timms (8) 8. Sanders (7)

The 12-lapper sent the top four to the back of the A. Macedo paced the distance ahead of Tatnell. Kaeding took third from Swanson on lap two. Day slid Swanson in turn two to take the fourth and final transfer with four to go. Bacon surged and closed on Day late, but came up a spot short.

A main (started): 1. Abreu (5) 2. Kofoid (2) 3. Price (1) 4. K Madsen (6) 5. Sanders (8) 6. Larson (17) 7. Reutzel (4) 8. Kaeding (23) 9. K. Johnson (15) 10. Eliason (9) 11. J. Henderson (14) 12.

Hafertepe (18) 25. Goodno (16)

The 35-lapper had a rough start with several cars eliminated in the first couple of laps. One lap in, and incident involving Randall, Bogucki, Peck and Kahne, who tipped over, brought out the red. Only Kahne continued after extensive work in the work area. Eliason also suffered damage and made repairs. Price led Kofoid, Reutzel, Mullen and Abreu back to green, but it wouldn’t last. Simultaneous accidents brought another red. Timms spun in turn one, collecting Goodno, who got upside down, and Macedo. Goodno would be done, and Timms would continue after the work area. At the same time, Abreu got into the left rear of Mullen, shooting him into the turn two concrete wall and upside down. Hafertepe could not avoid and hit him hard. They were both done. The eliminated cars saw Larson restart eighth, after a start in row nine. Abreu shot into third on the green but a lap later, Timms hit the turn two wall and flipped ending his night. No one was injured in the accidents. On lap seven, K. Madsen took fourth from Reutzel. A huge battle emerged for second, with Abreu and Kofoid exchanging the spot four times, with Rico cinching it on lap 23. Price continued setting a good pace, and entered traffic on lap 12. With ten laps to go, his lead was gone, when Day went up in smoke. Price led Abreu, Kofoid, Madsen and Reutzel back to green. Abreu used the restart to slide by Price in turn two and lead the rest of the way to earn $23,023. Kofoid snatched second with five to go.

 

 

Kyle Larson On Top of Sprint Car World with Second Knoxville Nationals Title!

Larson Second to Lead All 50 Laps

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 12, 2023) – Kyle Larson reigned supreme on Saturday night as he captured his second NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals Presented by Casey’s in three years. The Elk Grove, California native joined Donny Schatz (2015) as the only two drivers to lead wire to wire since the “Granddaddy of Them All” went to 50 laps in distance. Larson earned $185,000 for his win aboard the Paul Silva #57. It was his tenth career win at the “Sprint Car Capital of the World.”

Larson, who earned the pole on his Thursday qualifying night, shot out to a big lead over Schatz, Rico Abreu, Carson Macedo and Kerry Madsen. Larson built a 3.7 second lead by the fifth lap, and was already in traffic on lap seven. Abreu moved by Schatz for second on lap 14, as Logan Schuchart entered the top five.

Chase Randall had a top ten run stopped with a flat right rear tire on lap 15. At the same time, Abreu’s right rear was going flat, as he had to surrender the runner-up spot. Larson shot back out to a lead, as Madsen jumped from sixth to fourth on the restart, as he and Schuchart battled back and forth. Gio Scelzi and David Gravel waged their own duel for the sixth spot as Larson re-entered traffic on lap 22, before a mandatory red flag at the halfway point. Larson led Schatz, Macedo, Schuchart and Madsen to begin the second half.

Schuchart quickly moved into third, while Scelzi entered the top five. Schuchart put a slider on Schatz in turn four for second on lap 27. That’s the point, Gravel continued his charge from row eleven, dueling and winning a battle with Macedo for the fourth spot. With ten laps to go, Schuchart’s runner-up bid ended in a puff of smoke, bringing out the last caution.

The ten lap dash saw Larson ahead of Schatz, Gravel, Scelzi and Macedo. Gravel’s slider in turn four on Schatz earned him second with eight to go, and Scelzi performed the same type of move on Schatz for third. Schatz rebounded late in a three-wide battle for third, and Scelzi finished fourth. Macedo was fifth, followed by Brad Sweet, Abreu, Buddy Kofoid, Madsen and Sheldon Haudenschild.

Justin Peck won the 22-lap B main, Lynton Jeffrey claimed the 15-lap C main, Lachlan McHugh won the D main and Brooke Tatnell took the E main. A series of scary crashes plagued the night. Cody Ihlen crashed hard down the frontstretch. He was taken in for observation. Matt Covington did the same in the D main and was also taken in to be examined. James McFadden led the B main when his left rear tire blew, sending him into the wall and upside down. He was uninjured, as was Tasker Phillips, who also had a left rear go down while running tenth and flipped.

Chase Randall was the JETCO Rookie of the Nationals ($1,000), and Anthony Macri was the Beaver Drill & Tool “Jesse Hockett Mr. Sprint Car,” earning him $6,000.

In preliminary festivities, Sheldon Haudenschild and the Marshall-Stenhouse #17 team earned the DGRD Best Appearing Car of the Nationals ($1500). Brandon Wimmer and the DGRD #7TW Team was second ($750) and Cory Eliason was third ($400). Brandon Wimmer and the Dennis Gainey #7TW team won the Avanti Windows and Doors Best Dressed Crew Award ($500). The Jason Johnson Racing #41 team was second ($250), followed by the DGRD #6B team ($150). The Knapp Family Best Appearing Helmet went to Carson McCarl ($500). Anthony Macri was second ($300) and Sheldon Haudenschild third ($200). Kyle Larson received $2000 as the SprintCarUnlimited.com Pole Award Winner.

“To win another Knoxville Nationals feels amazing,” said Larson in Victory Lane. “When you have guys like Donny, Rico and Gravel coming from the back breathing down your neck, it’s definitely nerve-wracking. I feel like I ran about as good a race as I could. I kept my eyes open for crumbs in the middle. It started latching a little rubber there with 15 or 17 to go. It was helping me on entry. It all just worked out. This is my favorite week of the year. I look forward to this event all year long. It’s all I think about all week. I’m glad we could get this black and blue car to victory lane for (Paul Silva). He’s the greatest at what he does.”

“I want to be a two-time winner of the Knoxville Nationals so bad,” said Gravel. “Last year I gave one away, tonight I just needed a couple more laps. We just had a really good car. The track has been really consistent. They till the top, and it’s really fast around the top. I was able to get going early, and then I had a couple of bad laps about ten laps in. I lost a couple spots, then I got to the top and knew that’s where I needed to be the rest of the race. I finally got by Gio, and was able to slide Carson, then I got a run on Donny. If I could have cleared them earlier and got going, we would have been good.”

“We were kind of hanging there before (the break),” said Schatz. “We could get to the bottom pretty good, and I thought we’d have a chance on one of the restarts on the top and kept pace with him. I was running it for all it was worth, but it wasn’t enough. The racetrack was definitely different than the other night. We just didn’t have enough changes with it. All we did was change tires on the red, and try to make a few adjustments to get better. We just got worse. I couldn’t hold the left rear up the rest of the race. I was kind of hanging on. We raced as hard as we could.”

Aaron Reutzel Cruises to “Hard Knox Night” Win to Earn Berth in Saturday’s Championship!

David Gravel, Scott Bogucki and Davey Heskin Also Punch Their Tickets to the Big Dance

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 11, 2023) – Four drivers locked themselves into Saturday night’s 62nd NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals Presented by Casey’s finale by topping a 78-car field on “Hard Knox Night” at the Knoxville Raceway. Aaron Reutzel led flag to flag to earn his eighth career 410 feature. Reutzel, second place David Gravel, third place Scott Bogucki and fourth place Davey Heskin all earned $4,000, but will also see a minimum of $15,000 for starting Saturday’s finale in the 21st through 24th spots. Parker Price-Miller was fifth and earned $5,000, but will head to an eleventh place starting spot in Saturday’s B main.

Reutzel’s early lead came ahead of Bogucki, Jamie Ball, Ryan Timms and Brandon Wimmer. On lap two, Gravel shot from sixth to third to gain an all-important transfer position to Saturday’s feature, while Wimmer moved into fourth, getting by Ball on lap four. Balog slowed at that time while running sixth, but re-blended into the starting order. On lap seven, he would suffer a flat right rear, collecting Sye Lynch and Shane Golobic. Only Golobic would continue.

Gravel passed Bogucki for second on the restart. Price-Miller found some momentum at the halfway point, shooting on the low side from seventh to fifth on lap 13. A slider in turn four on Wimmer, garnered him the fourth spot with ten to go. Reutzel entered traffic on lap 19. Heskin found things to his liking on the bottom groove at about the same time, passing Wimmer for fifth.

Heskin reeled in Price-Miller and passed him on the low side of turn four for fourth with three to go. Up front, Gravel gained on Reutzel at the checkers, finishing just a tenth of a second behind him. Reutzel, Gravel, Bogucki and Heskin were followed by Price-Miller and Brent Marks. Wimmer, Timms, Justin Henderson and Cory Eliason rounded out the top ten. Reutzel and Bogucki set quick time over their respective groups. Gravel, Price-Miller, Eliason, Chris Windom, Tim Kaeding and Justin Sanders were heat race winners. Marks and Lynch won B mains. Skylar Prochaska claimed the C. Gage Pulkrabek and Sam Hafertepe Jr. were flip victims in hot laps. Both were done for the night, as was Bill Wagner, who was involved in another flip in practice involving Sanders. No one was injured.

“Friday’s not the way we want to get locked in,” said Reutzel in Victory Lane. “It was unfortunate what happened, but my guys fought hard. We put another car together and we’re locked back into the Nationals. That’s what it’s all about. It’s basically a $19,000 win (Saturday’s feature pays $15,000 to start). That’s what we’re here for.”

“When they till the top here, it gets so easy to run,” said Gravel. “You’re just running qualifying laps at that point. Once I found that lane halfway through, I picked up my pace a little bit. Three and four was starting to get some character. I think in a longer race, it will get a little more technical. Aaron set a torrid pace. I’m just happy to get in the show. We’ve been fast, and we had a fast enough car to win on our prelim night…that’s racing sometimes.”

“For me personally…I don’t have the words,” said Bogucki of transferring to Saturday’s feature for the first time. “I came over here ten years ago as a crew guy, and saw this as a dream. We missed it by one car two or three times…same thing Wednesday night. After last week, it’s nice to rebound back. About two laps in, we had a good racecar. We were pacing Aaron, and then he was getting away a little bit. We got free at the end.”

“Damn, it feels good to make that thing!” said an emotional Heskin, who will be making his fourth start, but first since 2012. “You try for so many years, and it’s such a mental game here trying to keep yourself up. We started rolling the middle there. It just feels so good. We blew our motor (Wednesday) and watched from the grandstand. Watching from the outside, kind of gives you perspective. To lock ourselves in is big!”

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 10, 2023) – Carson Macedo left the Knoxville Raceway in June with burns in an ambulance.  He returned Thursday night and won on Iowa Lottery Qualifying Night at the 62nd NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals Presented by Casey’s.  The Lemoore, California native earned $12,000 for his win aboard the Jason Johnson Racing #41.  Macedo earned himself a spot inside row three for Saturday night’s main event.  Kyle Larson and Rico Abreu emerged as high point drivers for the week, and it will be an all-California front row on Saturday night (point totals below).

 

Anthony Macri led at the outset of the main event ahead of Dusty Zomer, Garet Williamson, Macedo and Larson.  Williamson wrestled second from Zomer on lap four, and Macedo followed him on the high side into third a lap later.  Meanwhile, Spencer Bayston shot by Larson for fifth, and then passed Zomer for the fourth spot on lap seven.

 

Macri was into lapped traffic by the tenth circuit.  Macedo chased down the second place car of Williamson and threw a slider on him in turn two.  It came up short, but Williamson was able to keep going despite contact with the wall.  With his momentum slowed, Bayston pounced for the third spot.

 

With ten laps to go, Daryn Pittman flipped in turn three.  He was uninjured.  On the restart, Macri got loose, and Macedo shot by into the lead.  Meanwhile, Austin McCarl had been flying forward, getting by both Logan Schuchart and Larson to move into the top five.  Ian Madsen came to a stop a lap later, bringing caution again.  That gave Bayston an opportunity to pass Macri on the high side for second, and Larson to move back into the top five.

 

Another lap, another caution, this time for debris.  On lap 19, both Larson and Schuchart moved by McCarl for fourth and fifth.  Abreu was also making strides after winning the B, and had surged fourteen spots to seventh with four laps to go.  At that point, Brad Sweet lost a tire and flipped in turn one.  He was o.k.

 

The restart saw Macedo leading Bayston, Macri, Larson and Schuchart back to green.  On lap 24, Abreu shot from seventh to fifth.  Macedo was coming to the checkers when the red flag flew again, this time for a turned over Jamie Veal in turn two.  He was uninjured.

 

Macedo maintained his advantage, as the race was extended to 26 laps.  Larson made a last lap pass of Bayston for second.  Macri was fourth and Abreu was fifth.  McCarl, Schuchart, Zomer, Buddy Kofoid and Brock Zearfoss rounded out the top ten.  Abreu set quick time over the 54-car field, while Zach Hampton, Kevin Thomas Jr., Kalib Henry, Larson and Ayrton Gennetten won heats.  Shane Golobic won the C main, and Abreu claimed the B. 

 

“I thought the track was pretty racy there,” said Macedo in Victory Lane.  “The track got fast, and I was able to capitalize a little bit.  I hit the bottom nice there one time and I was able to slide (Williamson) for second.  Macri just missed the bottom on the start, and I was able to fire across to get the lead.  I knew at that point it was going to be tough to get by me as long as I started logging laps around the top.  I knew Spencer was good, and I saw Kyle and (Abreu) has been fast.  I knew if I just fired off the bottom and won the race to turn one, I’d be in good shape.  It stunk a few weeks ago to have that wreck, and it was a tough road back.  To come back here and win is pretty incredible.”

 

“Winning the Knoxville Nationals was cool, but I wanted to say I started on the pole of the Knoxville Nationals someday,” said Larson.  “We were able to get a good prelim night in.  We qualified o.k. going out late.  Driving from the fourth row to win the heat was pretty awesome.  We had a good car in the feature, I just made a lot of mistakes mostly that whole race.  To still come away with a second after being that sloppy, I’m happy.  We just need to clean a lot of things up.  I think Rico’s on the front row with me, and he’s been tough this year, especially at Knoxville.”

 

“That start was everything,” said Bayston.  “Starting tenth, with the guys I had in front of me, I knew I was going to have to make something happen on the start.  I was behind Brad, and they got kind of jumbled up.  I was able to time it perfectly, and get a row.  Before I knew it, we were sitting in third.  It just feels really good.  I’ve never made a Knoxville Nationals A main, and I’ve been trying for so long.  It just feels so good.  This is the most special place, and the most special race of all of sprint car racing.  Just making the A main feels so good.”

Donny Schatz Begins Knoxville Nationals Defense with Victory on Night #1! 

Schatz is Also the Point Leader for Wednesday 

by Bill Wright 

 

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 9, 2023) – Donny Schatz charged from the fourth row to earn victory on BRANDT Professional Agriculture Qualifying Night #1 of the 62nd NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals Presented by Casey’s Wednesday night.  The Fargo, North Dakota driver is an eleven-time winner of the Knoxville Nationals, but those victories were never preceded by a preliminary win.  He’s hoping to change that on Saturday.  His win Wednesday was worth $12,000 aboard the Tony Stewart Racing #15.  Schatz also was the high point driver on a night that saw many of the fastest cars in qualifying fail to transfer through their heat.  Hunter Schuerenberg, Kerry Madsen, Gio Scelzi and Corey Day rounded out the top five in points (full points below). 

 

Blake Hahn shot from his pole position in the 25-lap feature to lead early over Dustin Selvage, Chase Randall, Madsen and Schuerenberg.  Randall and Madsen both shot by Selvage on lap two for second and third, while Schuerenberg followed them into fourth on the next lap.  Sheldon Haudenschild started outside row six, but was into the top five by lap four.  Schatz had to repass Haudenschild on lap nine using the low side, and then claimed fourth from Schuerenberg on lap ten.  Hahn entered lapped traffic at that point, while Haudenschild re-enterd the top five on lap 13. 

 

Justin Peck was on a roll and had a run at Haudenschild on lap 17 when he made contact with his right rear and took a wicked ride down the frontstretch with eight laps to go.  Peck climbed out of the car.   

 

Hahn led Randall, Madsen, Schatz and Haudenschild back to green.  Randall dogged the leader and slid in front of him in turn four to lead lap 18.  Schatz followed him by Hahn to claim second on lap 19.  Schatz reeled in Randall slowly, passing him once, only to have Randall shoot back by him. 

 

On lap 22, Schatz executed a slider in turn three and claimed the point for good.  Randall followed him to the checkers, followed by Haudenschild, who grabbed third with two to go, Madsen and Hahn.  Sye Lynch, Schuerenberg, Selvage, Brandon Wimmer and Gio Scelzi completed the top ten.  David Gravel set quick time on the 52-car field, but suffered a setback in his heat.  That sent him to the C.  He won that, but was mired deep in the B main, which was won by Scelzi.  Brady Bacon, Haudenschild, Justin Henderson, Lynch and Carson McCarl won heat races. 

 

“We used to be really good in the prelims, and not as good on Saturday,” said Schatz in Victory Lane of his first prelim win in 20 years.  “We kind of took the emphasis off that.  I think being in the fifth heat was really key to getting though there.  The more you run, the more the track widens out, and it was good all night.  You just kind of go where they’re not.  That’s kind of what I did on the restart.  When the tires cycle through the heat a little bit, a little better car shines a little bit.  I could make the bottom work, make the middle work, it’s tricky.  You’ve got to be patient.  I knew I was in a good spot.  We came out of here with a decent point night and we’ll see how it goes.” 

 

“It was just frustrating,” said Randall of his near miss.  “We’ve been working so hard to stand up here every week.  I feel like we’re getting close.  We’re on the biggest stage of the year this week, and it just stinks.  Being a rookie, I just want to succeed so well.  I feel like we had one of the best cars here.  I felt good really early on, and we got to him right before that red came out.  That kind of messed me up, but I’m really happy about how we did.  I wasn’t trying to make it easy on (Schatz).  I was just trying to race my butt off.  I want to be where they are.  It just takes time.  We’ll get better, and be there on Saturday.” 

 

“(Kyle) Ripper had the car really good for the feature,” said Haudenschild of his crew chief.  “I got a good start, and the first couple, three laps, passed quite a few cars there.  I knew once I got by Donny, I needed to keep him back there.  I got hung up on the 39 car, and Donny was able to get by and gap us.  All in all, it was a good night.  That was a really fun feature.  It was the best I’ve felt in my car here in a long time.”

Oskaloosa, IA, Monday, August 7, 2023 – Australian World Series Champion, James McFadden, added to his resume Monday, when he dominated the $21,000 Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge at the Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa. The Alice Springs, Northern Territory native’s win came aboard the Roth Motorsports #83, and was his first in Osky.

McFadden earned the pole position in a traditional way, by winning the foot race pitting the top eight drivers in a feat of speed. He made good use of it, getting the jump in the 30-lapper on fellow front row starter, Carson Macedo, Brent Marks, Kyle Larson and Austin McCarl. Larson, who had won this event two straight years coming in, and had flown from a top five finish in the NASCAR race in Michigan, stopped on lap two, bringing the caustion.

McFadden took off on the restart, pulling away quickly from the field and entering lapped traffic by lap 11. Fourth running McCarl, lost something on the car on lap 14 and slowed. Fifth running Scott Bogucki could not avoid him and flipped hard in turn two. He was uninjured.

McFadden led Macedo, Marks, Corey Day and Blake Hahn back to green. Marks performed a wheelie when the green fell, allowing Day by into third. The top five hadn’t changed when Parker Price-Miller stopped and exited on lap 16.

The leader was undeterred, though a large lead was surrendered with each caution. McFadden built over a two second lead with ten to go, entered traffic with seven to go, and piled on his margin to the checkers. Macedo held onto second, ahead of Day, Marks and Hahn. Justin Sanders, Anthony Macri, hard-charger Cole Macedo, Brock Zearfoss and Spencer Bayston rounded out the top ten.

A pair of hard crashes destroyed cars, but did not result in injury. Riley Goodno touched a wheel and flipped hard down the frontstretch. That collected both Ryan Timms and Buddy Kofoid. Rusty Hickman crashed hard in the B main as well. Carson Macedo set quick time over the 39-car field for the second year in a row, while Brock Zearfoss, Zeb Wise, Kasey Kahne and McFadden won heats. Sawyer Phillips claimed the B.

Tyler Drueke was dominant in the IMCA Racesavers Support Class earning $1,000 for his win in the 15-lapper. The defending winner of the event, Adam Gullion led the first lap, but it was all Drueke from there, as the Eagle, Nebraska driver paced the last 14 laps.

Gullion was second, ahead of Ryan Kitchen, Kayla Martin and Lee Goos Jr. Mike Houseman Jr., Ryan Navritil, Gage Montgomery, Dusty Ballenger and Mike Moore completed the top ten. Dusty Ballenger and Lee Goos Jr. won the heats.

Brian Brown Shocks the House with .02 Second Win over Aaron Reutzel at 360 Nationals!

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 5, 2023) – Brian Brown executed a pass coming for the checkers Saturday at the 33rd Annual Xtream Powered by Mediacom 360 Knoxville Nationals Presented by Great Southern Bank and won by two-hundredths of a second over Aaron Reutzel, who had led the first 30 laps. Brown earned $20,000 plus $500 for leading the last lap. Ironically, Reutzel pocketed $25,000 for leading the first 30 laps and finishing second. The win earned Brown the big trophy as 360 Nationals champion for the second time as he also won this event in 2014. It was his 19th 360 win at the “Sprint Car Capital of the World.”

Reutzel shot out from his pole position in the 30-lap event ahead of Brown, Garet Williamson, Parker Price-Miller and Kaleb Johnson. Terry McCarl moved into the top five on lap four. Up front, Reutzel was eating up lap money to the tune of $500 a circuit, and entered lapped traffic on lap nine.

Zeb Wise moved by McCarl to enter the top five at that point. Reutzel extended his lead in traffic, while the action back in the pack intensified. Chase Randall had moved from 17th to the top ten by lap ten, and Rico Abreu was charging from the final starting spot. The leaders stayed status quo as the race wore on.

With just four laps to go, Justin Sanders slowed, and sixth running Tanner Holmes stopped inside turn one, ending a good run. The restart saw Reutzel ahead of Brown, Williamson, Price-Miller and Wise. Price-Miller slid by Williamson in turn two with two to go to gain third. Wise moved by him shortly after, and Johnson slid in front of him in turn one on the final lap.

Reutzel was roaring into turn three on the final lap when Williamson contacted the left rear tire of Johnson and flipped wildly in turn two. Johnson also got upside down ending his fifth place run. Both drivers were o.k.

The red flag added a lap to the contest. On the restart, Abreu shot from sixth to third. Up front, Reutzel protected, entering the bottom of one and sliding across the track, while Brown stuck to the cushion. He did the same on lap 31, and Brown gained significantly. In three and four, Reutzel slid across Brown’s nose in three. Brown tried to diamond the corner and drug inside Reutzel down the frontstretch. Reutzel tried to protect his position as the cars made contact. Brown won by a mere two hundredths of a second at the checkers.

Abreu followed the closest finish in 360 Nationals history, followed by Price-Miller and Ryan Timms. Wise, Randall, Sam Hafertepe Jr., McCarl and Kerry Madsen rounded out the top ten. Tyler Blank won the E main, Calvin Landis claimed the D main and Justin Henderson took the C main. Anthony Macri won the B main. Wise earned $500 from DGRD for best appearing car. Abreu’s hard-charger effort was good for Rookie of the Year and $500 from JETCO.

“$&%@ I just wanted to win!” said Brown in Victory Lane in honor of Jason Johnson’s quote at the 2016 Knoxville Nationals. Incidentally, Johnson topped Donny Schatz that year by the same two-hundredths of a second margin. “That’s for you Jason Johnson! I’m thankful for that red. I saw Tyler Swank (Reutzel’s crew chief) kind of telling him what to do. It helped my gameplan a little bit, because I didn’t know what he was going to do. He’s a great racecar driver. I knew he was going to slide himself (in one and two) and I knew I got a run. I knew my best chance was to take the bottom of three and four. I hit it pretty good, came off of turn four on the white and was going to slide him. He went to the middle, and I thought Christmas came early. I got such a good run down the backstretch and about got by him. He slid me across and I got it turned. I was either going to come back on the trailer or hold this trophy right here! He’s a great competitor. All week long, that’s who I wanted to race for the win. He’s the best there is at Knoxville right now. He probably had the better car, we just got lucky at the end and got the win.”

“If I went to the top to get a run, Brown slides me,” Reutzel said of the final restart. “My only hope was to complete good corner and get off and basically block him for two laps. Brown behind you on those restarts, it’s going to be tough. He’s one of the best for a reason, and he’s been kicking us all year. He kicked the Outlaws too when they were here. It stings, but it is what it is. It wasn’t meant to be.”

“(This charge) shows how good our guys are,” said Abreu, who claimed the last transfer from the B. “We made some big swings from Thursday night. We got a little bit better and better every time. That B was key. We got our tires heated up and got some good steam through the middle. I made my marks in the feature there. 360 racing is such a different style of racing. You have to keep your momentum and RPM’s up. It just took us some laps to get it. This is the best racetrack in the world and that’s why you see the best racing in the world here.”

Parker Price-Miller Holds Them All Off to Win Night #2 at the 360 Nationals! 

by Bill Wright 

 

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 4, 2023) – Kokomo, Indiana’s Parker Price-Miller held off Brian Brown to conquer Night #2 of the 33rd Annual Xtream Powered by Mediacom 360 Knoxville Nationals Presented by Great Southern Bank.  It was Parker’s first 360 win at Knoxville, and came aboard the family #9P.  Brown ended up as the high point getter, and will start outside pole-sitter Aaron Reutzel for Saturday night’s 25-lap finale.  Price-Miller, Garet Williamson, Zeb Wise and Terry McCarl completed the top five in Friday points (Saturday Lineups are below). 

 

Price-Miller started outside row one in the 20-lap main event beside pole-sitter Wise.  McCarl and Brown used good starts to move into second and third on the first lap.  Brown squeaked between McCarl and the turn four wall to shoot into second to complete lap two before Alex Vande Voort spun to bring the first caution. 

 

Brown used a slider in turn four to take a lead on lap three, but Price-Miller returned the favor in turn three on the following lap to retake the point.  Wise worked his way by McCarl for third before Cam Martin flipped hard through turns three and four five laps in.  He was uninjured.  The next two tries at green were no better.  Justin Sanders had trouble taking off on the first, with Harli White getting into the back of him.   

 

Both went to the work area and had time to make repairs thanks to a red flag.  Clint Garner flipped violently, collecting Kerry Madsen, Shane Golobic, who got upside down, and Carson McCarl.  Both Madsen and McCarl made repairs and restarted at the tail, joining White.  Sanders could not start.  Price-Miller led Brown, Wise, Terry McCarl and Williamson back to green.  Williamson moved into fourth on the restart, but McCarl would reclaim it.   

 

Price-Miller kept a steady pace, with Brown closing in.  On lap 17, Brown slid in front of the leader, but Price-Miller ducked back under and stormed to the win.  Wise finished third, followed by Terry McCarl and Williamson.  Hard-charger Davey Heskin, Ryan Giles, Anthony Macri, Daryn Pittman and Kasey Kahne rounded out the top ten.  Sanders set quick time on the 54-car field, while Heskin, Brooke Tatnell, Price-Miller, Wise and Golobic won heats.  Alex Hill won the C main and Sanders claimed the B. 

 

“If anyone gets the award for restarts at Knoxville, it’s definitely the 21 car,” said Price-Miller in Victory Lane.  “With him breathing down your throat, you can’t let up.  I had the wing too far back at the beginning, and I started burying myself in the curb getting tight.  I tried my best to get the wing back forward, which is hard to do under green.  I can’t thank my guys enough.” 

 

The companion Pro Sprints feature was rained out in staging.  Matthew Stelzer set quick time, while Kade Higday and Toby Mosher won heats.

Aaron Reutzel Starts 360 Nationals Defense with Thursday Prelim Win!
by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 3, 2023) (Revised, August 4) – Aaron Reutzel began where he ended last year’s event Thursday on Night #1 of the Xtream Powered by Mediacom 360 Knoxville Nationals Presented by Great Southern Bank. The Clute, Texas driver wrestled the lead away with five to go and went on to win his ninth career 360 feature here. The defending champion also topped the point standings after night one, followed by Kelby Watt, Ryan Timms, Kaleb Johnson and Tanner Holmes (full point results under results).

Colby Copeland led arly over Reutzel, Jamie Ball, Jason Martin and Watt. Sam Hafertepe Jr. entered the top five by lap four, and Scott Bogucki had traveled from 15th to sixth at the same time. Timothy spun, bringing out the caution.

Hafertepe surged from fifth to third on the restart, and Bogucki entered the top five before Tasker Phillips tipped over in turn four. Phillips restarted at the tail. The restart saw Copeland leading Reutzel, Hafertepe, Ball and Bogucki back to green.

Bogucki continued his charge by passing Ball for fourth on lap nine. Up front, Copeland was stuck to the bottom with Reutzel in tow. On lap 14, he approached lapped traffic and struggled to get by Smith. On lap 15, Reutzel took advantage and Hafertepe followed him, as both bested Copeland at the line. A lap later, Bogucki moved into third.

Reutzel stayed out front to claim the $3,000 prize and 200 valuable points in the RSR #8, ahead of Hafertepe, hard-charger Bogucki, Randall and Copeland. Ball, Jason Martin, Austin McCarl, Watt and Justin Peck rounded out the top ten. Kaleb Johnson set quick time over the 50-car field, while Brenham Crouch, Tasker Phillips, Jason Martin, McCarl and Bogucki won heat races. Liam Martin took the C main and Ryan Leavitt claimed the B. Liam Martin flipped hard in the B main, but was uninjured.

“I needed (no yellows) and some lapped traffic,” said Reutzel of his pursuit of Copeland. “The bottom was too easy to hit. My car was great, he was just running a good race. It seemed like every time I got there and made a mistake, he’d slide up in front of me where I had to move a little. We got some lapped traffic, and I was finally able to seal the deal there. I can’t thank this team enough.”

“We had a really good racecar,” said Hafertepe. “Aaron runs here all the time and he knows where put his car in those situations. He did exactly what he needed to do. We had the better racecar, but he drove a really good race putting himself in the right place at the right time. We made a little charge on him the last couple laps, but couldn’t get it done. We salvaged a night going out as late as we did (for qualifying).”

“We’ve started on the front row of this before and run fourth,” said Bogucki. “I buried us after qualifying. I guess I just got pissed off and got up on the wheel. We made whatever we needed to happen happen. We got this thing rolling.”

Following post-race inspection, Bogucki was disqualified, surrendering all points and purse earned.

Brian Brown Wires the Field at Knoxville for Win #65!

Aaron Reutzel Scores 360 Win; Kade Higday Tops Pro Sprints

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 22, 2023) – Brian Brown emerged victorious on 3M Night at Knoxville Raceway Saturday. The Grain Valley, Missouri driver’s win was his fifth of the year at Knoxville, as his momentum is carrying towards some important August events at the “Sprint Car Capital of the World.” The win was the 65th in his career at Knoxville (second all-time) and was worth $5,000. Aaron Reutzel was equally as impressive in the 360 feature, winning his fourth of the season here in that class and for the eighth time in his career. Kade Higday picked up his seventh career victory in the Pro Sprints class.

The 20-lap 410 feature started awkwardly when both front row starter, Dusty Zomer (throttle linkage) and Ayrton Gennetten could not start the event. Then Justin Henderson spun before a lap could be completed, while Chris Martin hit the wall hard and had to replace a tire. Brandon Wimmer also had to make a tire change. All those cars restarted.

Brown inherited a front row starting spot, and wasted no time getting out front ahead of Garet Williamson, Scott Bogucki, Aaron Reutzel and Austin McCarl. On lap two, Reutzel snared third from Bogucki. McCarl followed him into fourth a lap later.

Brown entered lapped traffic on the seventh circuit and began building his advantage. Battles raged late in the going behind him. Reutzel passed Williamson in heavy lapped traffic with four to go, while McCarl did the same to move up to third a lap later. While Brown was gone, McCarl reeled in Reutzel and snared second on the low side of turn four coming for the white flag.

Following Brown, McCarl and Reutzel, were Williamson and Bogucki, in his first night in the Liebig #10. Tasker Phillips, Davey Heskin, Buddy Kofoid, hard-charger Chase Randall and Lynton Jeffrey rounded out the top ten. Lachlan McHugh set quick time over the 32-car field, while Ryan Timms, Chris Martin, Kofoid and Sawyer Phillips won heats. Henderson claimed the B main.

“We struggled all night long honestly,” said Brown in Victory Lane. “This is a different car than we’ve had all year here. This was a car we won the Outlaw show with last year and then I crashed at the Capitani Classic. I feel like it really wasn’t right at the Nationals. I chose to bring this one, and after the heat race (finishing sixth) I was thinking it wasn’t a bad decision. Our team never quits though. If you give my team enough opportunities, it’s going to be good.”

Reutzel shot from row two to lead pole-sitter Jamie Ball by a narrow margin completing the first of eighteen laps in the 360 main event. Chase Randall was third, followed by Justin Henderson and Cam Martin. Garet Williamson moved into the top five by lap three before the fourth running Henderson went up in smoke on lap five and retired.

Reutzel hit lapped traffic on the eighth circuit, but Scott Bogucki, who was running fifth, came to a stop with a flat right rear tire. The restart saw Reutzel leading Ball, Randall, Williamson and Martin. Randall quickly took second from Ball, while Reutzel advanced his lead the second half of the race.

Randall chased Reutzel to the line, ahead of Willamson, who nabbed third with four to go, Ball and Davey Heskin. Tasker Phillips, Ryan Timms, Cam Martin, Brooke Tatnell and hard-charger Ryan Giles completed the top ten. Fifty cars were separated into two groups, with Martin and Reutzel setting quick time in their flights. Clint Garner, Henderson, Timms and Calvin Landis won heats. Riley Goodno and Giles claimed the two B mains. Grae Anderson took a tumble in his heat race, but was uninjured.

“Our car has been really good with a 360,” said Reutzel afterwards. “We’re getting there with the 410, but for whatever reason, these cars really like the 360’s. This motor is Don Long’s (Moyle) motor that we won the 360 Nationals with last year. I don’t know that it’s been run since then. To come out two nights before the 360 Nationals and blow the dusty off her…it’s just like I remember.”

Mike Johnston led the 15-lap Pro Sprints feature early ahead of Kade Higday, Matt Allen, Mike Mayberry and Bandon Worthington. Jeff Wilke quickly moved into the top five. Johnston set a good pace, but Higday slowly reeled him in and used his characteristic high groove to make up ground on the leader.

On lap nine, Higday made his winning pass high in turn two. Matthew Stelzer started in row four, but was making up ground late. He advanced to fifth on lap seven, fourth with six to go, and finished third behind Higday and Johnston with a late passe of Groenendyk. Mayberry passed Groenendyk in the last corner for fourth. Allen was sixth, ahead of Worthington, Casey Friedrichsen, Ryan Navratil, AJ Johnson and Josh Jones. Matt Allen set quick time, while Stelzer and Wilke won heats.

“This has been a blast,” said Higday afterwards.

8-lap heats took the top two to the Dash and the top five to the feature. There was little passing in the first three.

Heat two (started): 1. Schuchart 1s (2) 2. Abreu 24 (1) 3. David Gravel 2 (4) 4. F. Rahmer 8 (3) 5. James McFadden 83 (6) / 6. Spencer Bayston 5 (5) 7. Chase Dietz 2D (7) 8. TJ Stutts 11T (8) 9. Cameron Smith 39T (9)

Eliason led Zearfoss, Haudenschild, Peck and Buckwalter early. Haudenschild slid by Zearfoss for second on lap two, and Peck followed him using the low side of two into third on lap five. Dewease stayed close to Buckwalter for the final transfer before passing him on the last lap.

Dash (started): 1. Sweet (2) 2. Schuchart (1) 3. Macedo (4) 4. Abreu (6) 5. Eliason (3) 6. Marks (8) 7. Haudenschild (5) 8. Scelzi (7)

The 6-lapper set up the first four rows of the feature. Spots up front were settled on the first lap.

Kahne (24) 24. Allen (19) 25. Moody (26, prov.) 26. B. Dietrich (22)

The 25-lapper paid $15,000 to the winner. It was all Sweet early over Schuchart, Abreu, Macedo and Marks. Peck had moved up nicely from 12th to sixth by lap five. Sweet was into lappers on the eighth circuit. Peck pass Marks for fifth on lap 12, but Marks passed him back a lap later in a good battle. Up front, Sweet got by some lappers, but Schuchart was having trouble getting by Stutts, a provisional. Haudenschild was another car moving forward, passing Peck for sixth on lap 18. He moved by Marks for fifth with two to go. Up front, Sweet appeared to be cruising, but Schuchart started gaining with two to go. In three and four on the last lap, Schuchart rode the far high side while Sweet used the bottom groove. Schuchart came down from the top of turn four to a drag race to the finish, making the winning pass by .078 seconds!

The first visit for the WoO in 31 years was put off a day by a Wednesday night thunderstorm.

Justin Peck (5th car out to time) set quick time on the 4/10-mile oval at 14.979 seconds. Brad Sweet (18th car out) was second quick, followed by Dylan Norris (7th), Logan Schuchart (30th), Cory Eliason (2nd), Gio Scelzi (16th), Sheldon Haudenschild (26th), Brent Marks (3rd), Kasey Kahne (8th) and James McFadden (15th).

Heat one (started): 1. Peck 13 (1) 2. Eliason 11 (2) 3. Kahne 9 (3) 4. Kyle Reinhardt 91 (7) 5. Donny Schatz 15 (4) / 6. Tyler Ross 75 (5) 7. Freddie Rahmer 8 (6) 8. Jordan Givler 90 (8)

Peck led the distance and pulled away in convincing fashion. Rahmer spun out of the fifth and final transfer spot three laps in. Ross inherited the final transfer spot, but Schatz took the high side of three and four on the restart to claim the spot.

Heat two (started): 1. Sweet 49 (1) 2. Scelzi 18 (2) 3. McFadden 83 (3) 4. Jacob Allen 1a (6) 5. Brock Zearfoss 3z (7) / 6. Robbie Price 7s (4) 7. Lucas Wolfe 5w (5) 8. Cameron Smith 39T (8)

Sweet led wire to wire over Scelzi and McFadden. Allen put a bad slider on Wolfe to take fifth on lap two. Smith stopped with two to go. That set up a mad scramble fo the final transfer that saw Price in the spot and up to fourth, before Allen and Zearfoss both got by to sneak in.

Heat three (started): 1. Carson Macedo 41 (3) 2. Haudenschild 17 (2) 3. Norris 44 (1) 4. Troy Wagaman Jr. 27 (4) 5. Danny Dietrich 48 (7) / 6. Sam Hafertepe Jr. 15H (5) 7. Brett Strickler 38 (6) 8. Domenic Melair 55 (8)

No change in the top four in this one from green to checker, but Danny Dietrich slid Hafertepe for the final transfer, making contact in turn four.

Heat four (started): 1. Schuchart 1s (1) 2. David Gravel 2 (3) 3. Marks 19 (2) 4. Spencer Bayston 5 (4) 5. Kyle Moody 99m (5) / 6. Devon Borden 23 (7) 7. Noah Gass 20G (6) 8. Bill Rose 6 (8)

Again, not much movement in the top four, but a good battle for the final transfer between Moody, Borden and Gass. The latter two put some good sliders on each other to carry the entertainment in the heat.

Dash (started): 1. Sweet (1) 2. Schuchart (2) 3. Gravel (4) 4. Eliason (3) 5. Macedo (5) 6. Haudenschild (7) 7. Scelzi (6) 8. Peck (8)

The 6-lap Dash set up to the first four rows of the feature.

B main (started): 1. Hafertepe (3) 2. Price (1) 3. Borden (4) 4. Rahmer (5) / 5. Wolfe (6) 6. Givler (9) 7. Gass (8) 8. Strickler (7) 9. Melair (11) 10. Rose (12) 11. Ross (2) 12. Smith (10)

The 12-lapper took the top four to the feature. Gass contacted Ross who got upside down hard in turn two, collecting Smith. Both were done. Hafertepe shot into the lead at the outset, and the top four were never seriously challenged.

A main (started): 1. Gravel (3) 2. Sweet (1) 3. Schuchart (2) 4. Macedo (5) 5. Marks (12) 6. Haudenschild (6) 7. Scelzi (7) 8. Dietrich (19) 9. McFadden (10) 10. Peck (8) 11. Norris (11) 12. Schatz (17) 13. Borden (23) 14. Reinhardt (13) 15. Kahne (9) 16. Allen (14) 17. Wagaman Jr. (15) 18. Moody (20) 19. Price (20) 20. Zearfoss (18) 21. Bayston (16) 22. Eliason (4) 23. Rahmer (24) 24. Hafertepe (21)

The 30-lap feature went non-stop. Sweet led early over Gravel, Schuchart, Macedo and Scelzi. Eliason took over fifth from Scelzi on lap two, which started a good battle for the spot. Scelzi took it back a lap later. The leaders were single-file early and entered lapped traffic on lap ten. Traffic began to be an issue and Gravel passed Sweet low in turn four on lap 14 for the lead. The next circuit, he was the one caught behind traffic and Sweet took over again. Five laps later, Gravel went high in turn two to take command for good over the last ten laps. Marks was on the move late, getting by Scelzi to nail down fifth. Dietrich was the hard-charger.

Five groups of qualifying saw Kerry Madsen set quick time with the first group, and overall with the All Stars for the third straight event at 13.558 seconds on the 4/10 mile oval. Trent Pigdon was quickest in the second group, Kyle Larson in the third, Tim Shaffer in the fourth, and Devon Borden in the fifth. JJ Hickle got over the turn one berm and flipped, but came back to take one lap at the end of qualifying.

Heat one (started): 1. Justin Peck 13 (1) 2. Cole Macedo 21T (2) 3. Madsen 55 (4) 4. Cory Eliason 11 (6) / 5. Kasey Kahne 9 (7) 6. Lee Jacobs 81 (5) 7. Cameron Smith 39 (9) 8. Cody Bova 20B (3) 9. Matt Farnham 7NY (8)

8-lap heats took the winner and the quickest qualifier (starting fourth in the heats) who made it in the top four to the Dash. The top four qualified for the feature. Bova went over the top of one and two at the outset and lost several spots. Peck led the distance in a mostly single-file affair.

Heat two (started): 1. Sam Hafertepe Jr. 15H (1) 2. Cody Maroske 101 (2) 3. Craig Mintz 09 (3) 4. Pigdon 19P (4) / 5. Brent Shearer 12x (7) 6. Zeth Sabo 29F (6) 7. JJ Hickle 97 (5) 8. Steve Bright 13B (8)

While there was no real movement in the top four, Hickle, Sabo and Shearer battled tooth and nail for fifth, sixth and seventh, trading the spots several times.

Heat three (started): 1. Brent Marks 19 (1) 2. AJ Flick 2F (5) 3. Chris Windom 4 (2) 4. Larson 57 (4) / 5. Ryan Smith 6s (3) 6. Dale Blaney 32B (6) 7. Carl Bowser 11B (7) 8. Kip Edwards 4K (8)

Marks led wire to wire. Fick had a great start, jumping from fifth to third on the first lap and passing Windom at the halfway point for second with a slider in three.

Heat four (started): 1. Anthony Macri 7BC (1) 2. Sye Lynch 29 (5) 3. Tim Shaffer 45 (4) 4. Billy Dietrich 12 (3) / 5. Zeb Wise 26 (2) 6. Brent Matus 33 (6) 7. Conner Morrell 28m (7) 8. Todd Moule 26AU (8)

Macri led early, while Lynch shot from row three to second on the first lap. Shaffer was able to get by Wise for the fourth and final transfer on lap two., athen took third from Dietrich on the low side with three to go.

Heat five (started): 1. Buddy Kofoid 83JR (1) 2. Lucas Wolfe 5w (2) 3. Brandon Spithaler 22 (3) 4. Borden 23 (4) / 5. Dan Shetler 29s (5) 6. Ricky Peterson 2 (7) 7. Bob Felmlee 6 (6) 8. Brandon Matus 13m (8)

Kofoid led the distance. Wolfe passed Spithaler on lap seven for second.

Dash (started): 1. Kofoid (1) 2. Larson (2) 3. Shaffer (4) 4. Peck (5) 5. Marks (3) 6. Macri (6) 7. Madsen (10) 8. Hafertepe (8) 9. Borden (9) 10. Pigdon (7)

The 6-lapper set the first five rows of the feature. Shaffer and Peck moved up early, in a mostly single-file affair.

B main (started): 1. Kahne (3) 2. R. Smith (4) 3. Jacobs (2) 4. Shetler (6) / 5. Wise (5) 6. Shearer (7) 7. Sabo (9) 8. Bova (1) 9. Peterson (11) 10. Blaney (8) 11. Farnham (21) 12. Bre. Matus (10) 13. Felmlee (14) 14. Bowser (15) 15. Moule (20) 16. Hickle (13) 17. C. Smith (12) 18. Morrell (16) 19. Bright (18) 20. Edwards (19) 21. Bra. Matus (17)

The 12-lapper transferred the top four to the A. Hickle spun at the outset, but didn’t collect anyone and restarted at the tail. Jacobs led Kahne, R. Smith and Bova early. Shetler took the final transfer spot from Bova on lap two. R. Smith passed Jacobs low in turn four on lap six to take the lead. Kahne moved by Jacobs a lap later for second. On lap nine, Kahne used the high side to take the lead from R. Smith. R. Smith returned the favor on the low side coming for the white flag in a great battle. Kahne used a last lap pass for the win.

A main (started): 1. Larson (2) 2. Marks (5) 3. Peck (4) 4. Kofoid (1) 5. Shaffer (3) 6. Macri (6) 7. Hafertepe (8) 8. Wolfe (14) 9. Eliason (19) 10. Borden (9) 11. Flick (12) 12. Mintz (18) 13. Macedo (11) 14. Dietrich (20) 15. Maroske (15) 16. Lynch (13) 17. Shetler (24) 18. Windom (16) 19. Wise (25, prov.) 20. Jacobs (23) 21. Madsen (7) 22. Spithaler (17) 23. Kahne (21) 24. Pigdon (10) 25. R. Smith (22)

A missing “woman” formation was performed for the late Jean Lynch. The 30-lapper saw Pigdon spin and collect R. Smith in turn two when the green fell. Both were done. It was a saving grace for Kofoid who had driven over the top of turn one and lost several spots. He led Larson, Shaffer, Macri and Marks when the green fell again. Things stayed that way except for a Marks pass of Macri until Madsen got over the top of turn one bringing a caution eight laps in. After the restart, Marks and Shaffer battled for the third spot, going back and forth until Marks took it for good on lap 12. Kofoid hit lapped traffic on lap 18, and Larson pounced for the lead on lap 19, low in turn two. He carried it until the finish, which was worth $25,000. On lap 24, Peck worked into fourth, getting by Shaffer. The last lap saw chaos for Kofoid, who lost second to Marks and third to Peck. Eliason was the hard-charger.

Austin McCarl Nabs $5,000 in Late Race Pass on Exciting Night at Knoxville!

Chase Randall Takes $5,000 360 Shootout On Last Lap

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 15, 2023) – Austin McCarl was patient in taking a late race lead to win the $5,000 and a half beef Van Wall Night feature during the Marion County Fair Saturday at Knoxville. The Altoona, Iowa native’s win was his seventh 410 victory here, and his first of the year aboard the Offil family Country Builders Construction #88. Chase Randall threw a slider at Garet Williamson on the last lap to take the 360 Shootout worth $5,000 and a half hog. The Waco, Texas driver’s win was his third in a row here, on a night that saw plenty of bonuses from the Knoxville 360 Boosters.

Tasker Phillips led the 20-lap 410 main event early over Terry McCarl, Lynton Jeffrey, Jake Bubak and Austin McCarl. Terry McCarl and Phillips tussled for the lead, exchanging the spot three times before Terry took it for good on lap six. He entered lapped traffic on lap seven as Bubak found his way around Phillips and into second. Meanwhile, Davey Heskin moved into the top four.

Bubak tracked down the leader and passed McCarl in turn three in traffic on lap eleven. Heskin followed him into second. Bubak looked strong up front before losing a driveline with six to go and pulling off. Heskin assumed the lead at that point ahead of Terry and Austin McCarl, who grabbed third on lap 15.

Chase Randall passed Phillips for fourth on lap 17, before the latter stopped with a flat left rear on lap 19, setting up a green, white, checker finish. Heskin led Terry McCarl, Austin McCarl, Randall and Lynton Jeffrey. Ayrton Gennetten also suffered a flat under the caution. He would have restarted seventh.

Austin McCarl shot around his father for second on the restart, while Randall moved into third. Heskin took off from the field and took the white flag, but before a lap could be completed, Gennetten came to a stop again.

It was the chance that Austin needed, as he moved around Heskin to gain the victory. Randall finished third, ahead of Terry McCarl and Justin Henderson. Jeffrey, Riley Goodno, Roger Crockett, Tasker Phillips and Sawyer Phillips rounded out the top ten. Jeffrey set quick time, and Gennetten, Tasker Phillips and Henderson won the heats.

“Normally, I hate yellows and they come out for me when I pass somebody,” said Austin in Victory Lane. “About halfway through the race I was trying to pass a guy who was running the middle and Davey smoked me, and some other guys. I had no idea where I was running. I was running down my Dad and I knew he started on the front row. I thought I had to be close. When the yellow came out, I was running third and I was thankful for the yellow. I needed that one. This feels really good. We’ve been working and working on this thing, just trying to look like that 21 (Brian Brown) car. Tonight the car was really nice.”

Garet Williamson shot by the front row to lead early in the 25-lap 360 Shootout ahead of Tony Rost by .018 second, Davey Heskin, Dusitn Selvage and Chase Randall. Kaleb Johnson spun but kept it going. After a caution he blended back into the field. Selvage took third from Heskin on the restart, and Randall moved into fourth.

On lap three, Randall gained second from Rost with a slider, and Selvage followed him into third on lap four. Heskin moved up to fourth on lap five before the leaders hit lapped traffic on the eighth circuit. Heskin moved by Selvage for third on lap nine. Williamson set a torrid pace in traffic, but with four laps to go, Randall, started reeling him in.

In the final corners on the last lap, Randall slid at Williamson, causing the leader to get above the cushion. Randall would cross first, while Williamson held on for second. Heskin was third, ahead of Selvage and Scott Bogucki. Austin McCarl, Rost, Jamie Ball, Ryan Giles and Clint Garner completed the top ten. The 54-car field saw Bogucki and Groenendyk set quick time in their respective groups. Selvage, Dusty Zomer, Gunner Ramey, Kade Higday, Jacob Hughes and Chris Martin won heats. Collin Moyle claimed the C main and Tasker Phillips took the B. The 360 Booster Club paid out several bonuses in addition to the feature paying $5,000 to the winner and $1,000 to start.

“I wanted to get to the lead early, but Garet did a phenomenal job kind of controlling the race,” said Randall in Victory Lane. “Being up front was the key with how the track was. I was making so many bad decisions in lapped traffic. I couldn’t find a good place for me. I found the bottom in one and two on one lap, and it worked for me. Garet kind of got crossed up behind guys like I did, and I kind of ran him down. I got just close enough to make a move. This is 90% mental. Once you get your first one, you know hard work can pay off.”

Fergus Falls, MN

IRA/NOSA Shootout

38 cars

Two flights of qualifying saw Brenda Mullen (8th car out to time) set quick time in the first group and overall at 13.822 seconds, about four tenths off Joey Saldana’s 2014 record, the last time 410’s visited. Brenham Crouch (5th car out) was second quick in the group, followed by Zach Omdahl (1st), Austin Hartmann (12th) and Danny Schlafer (19th). The second group saw Scott Neitzel (1st car out) set quick time ahead of Jordan Goldesberry (4th), Austin Pierce (2nd), Jade Hastings (5th) and Russel Borland (3rd). Blake Egeland failed to get a time in in the first group.

Heat one (started): 1. Jack Croaker 8 (1) 2. Mullen 11m (4) 3. Z. Omdahl 17 (3) 4. D. Schlafer 25 (2) 5. Skylar Prochaska 35 (5) / 6. Preston Ruh 26R (7) 7. Jordan Graham 99 (6) 8. Patrick Heikkinen 13H (8) DNS – Tyler Tischendorf 26, Blake Egeland 26E

8 lap heats took the top five to the feature. The heat winners and three fastest qualifiers in each group making a heat transfer qualified for the Dashes. Croaker led the distance ahed of Mullen. Z. Omdahl made a sliding pass of Schlafer in the last corner to nail down third.

Heat two (started): 1. Josh Schneiderman 49 (2) 2. Crouch 1 (4) 3. Nick Omdahl 0 (1) 4. Hartmann 87A (3) 5. Gage Pulkrabek G5 (5) / 6. Reed Allex 91 (8) 7. Scott Conger 24 (7) 8. William Huck 39V (9) 9. Weston Olson 27 (6)

Schneiderman led N. Omdahl and Crouch early. Crouch put a slider on Omdahl to gain second on lap two before a fifth running Olson got into the turn three wall and flipped. He was done for the night. Schneiderman led Crouch, N. Omdahl, Hartmann and Pulkrabek back to green. Pulkrabeck passed Hartmann on the low side for fourth at the halfway point, but Hartmann got back by on the white flag lap in a good battle.

Heat three (started): 1. Jake Neuman 3N (1) 2. Borland 23 (2) 3. Neitzel 2w (4) 4. Pierce 2A (3) 5. Caden Englehart 71m (5) / 6. Joel Myers Jr. 46 (7) 7. Jack Vanderboom U2 (6) 8. Kris Spitz 4K (8) 9. Josh Swangler 10s (9) 10. Bill Wagner 78 (10)

Neuman dominated from the start and won by eight seconds. There was plenty of action behind him. On lap two, California’s Myers shot from seventh to the fifth and final transfer. He then passed Pierce on the low side for fourth on lap five. The last lap saw fourth through sixth place drivers three-wide, with Pierce moving into fourth, and Englehart getting by both Vanderboom and Myers to steal the final transfer.

Heat four (started): 1. Mark Dobmeier 13 (2) 2. Travis Arenz 25T (1) 3. Goldesberry 65 (4) 4. Hastings 8H (3) 5. Tim Estenson 14T (6) / 6. Ryan Bowers 199 (7) 7. Christopher Thram 24T (5) 8. Kyle Schuett 9K (8) 9. Al Schlafer 25A (9)

Dobmeier led the distance. Arenz took second from Hastings on lap two, while Bowers moved into the fifth and final transfer. Goldesberry shot by Hastings for third on lap three. Estenson had lost momentum early, but came back to pass Bowers in a very good race for the final transfer with two to go.

Dash one (started): 1. Crouch (1) 2. Croaker (2) 3. Mullen (3) 4. Z. Omdahl (4) 5. Schneiderman (5)

4-lap Dashes determined the inside and outside of rows one through five in the feature. They were both single-file affairs.

Dash two (started): 1. Dobmeier (1) 2. Pierce (2) 3. Goldesberry (4) 4. Neitzel (3) 5. Neuman (5)

B main (started): 1. Myers (2) 2. Ruh (3) 3. Bowers (4) 4. Vanderboom (6) / 5. Spitz (8) 6. Schuett (10) 7. Tischendorf (1) 8. Allex (5) 9. Conger (7) 10. A. Schlafer (12) 11. Heikkinen (11) 12. Huck (13) 13. Wagner (14) 14. Graaham (9) DNS – Thram, Swangler, Olson, Egeland

The 12-lap B took the top four to the A. The original front row was vacated when Thram didn’t start and Tischendorf spun in staging and was sent to the tail. Myers jumped to the front, ahead of Ruh, Bowers and Vanderboom, and that’s how they would finish. Tischendorf was working his way back up before spinning again two laps in. He would climb to seventh at the end.

A main (started): 1. Dobmeier (2) 2. Mullen (5) 3. Croaker (3) 4. Neuman (10) 5. Pierce (4) 6. Hastings (16) 7. Schneiderman (9) 8. Myers Jr. (21) 9. Goldesberry (6) 10. Neitzel (8) 11. Z. Omdahl (7) 12. Vanderboom (24) 13. Borland (12) 14. D. Schlafer (15) 15. Crouch (1) 16. Prochaska (17) 17. Bowers (23) 18. Pulkrabek (19) 19. Hartmann (13) 20. Estenson (20) 21. Englehart (18) 22. Ruh (22) 23. Arenz (14) 24. Z. Omdahl (11)

The 30-lapper saw Dobmeier leading Crouch, Croaker, Mullen and Pierce early. The leaders hit lapped traffic on lap six. On lap nine, Crouch worked low in three and four to take the lead in traffic. On lap thirteen, Arenz brought out the caution. Crouch led Dobmeier, Croaker, Mullen and Pierce. Pierce snatched fourth on the restart, but on lap 15, both Mullen and 20th starting Estenson rolled back by him for fourth and fifth. Ruh suffered a right rear flat on lap 17, resulting in another caution. Mullen snagged third on lap restart, while Estenson gained another snopt on lap 19. With nine to go, disaster struck Crouch when his right rear tire blew. Dobmeier inherited the lead ahead of Estenson, Mullen, Croaker and Hastings. Estenson slid under Dobmeier in turn one to bid for the improbable lead from row ten, but Dobs battled back by. Englehart tipped over with five to go. During the red, Estenson’s right rear went flat ending a great run. Dobmeier held the lead the rest of the way to gain the $3,000 prize with Mullen in tow. Neuman came on late, grabbing third briefly, but settling for fourth. Myers Jr. was the hard-charger.

Brian Brown Takes $6,000 with Knoxville Mid-Season Championship!

Chase Randall Takes Second 360 Win in a Row for $3,750; Mike Mayberry Claims $1200 with Pro Sprints Win

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 9, 2023) – Brian Brown roared from his starting spot in row four to win his 64th career feature Saturday night on Farm Bureau Financial Services Night at the Knoxville Raceway. The Grain Valley, Missouri driver hauled home $6,000 which included a $1,000 bonus as the highest finishing driver qualifying for the points race at Knoxville. Waco, Texas’s Chase Randall earned $3,000 plus a $750 bonus for his second consecutive win in the 360 class. Mike Mayberry took home a total of $1200 for his win in the Pro Sprints class.

Lynton Jeffrey took the early lead in the 25-lap 410 feature, ahead of Sawyer Phillips and Cory Eliason. Brown entered the top three by the third lap, and claimed second from Phillips on lap four. Davey Heskin took fourth on lap six.

Brown used the low side of turn four to take the lead from Jeffrey on lap eight. Heskin worked by Phillips for third on lap nine. Austin McCarl surged late, taking fourth from Eliason on lap 15, and claiming third from Heskin with nine to go. Blake Hahn suffered a flat tire with five to go, bringing the first caution of the race.

Brown led Jeffrey, McCarl, Heskin and Eliason back to green. Heskin and McCarl battled back and forth for third. McCarl took the spot with three to go, and passed Jeffrey for second on lap 23, but that pass was negated when Dustin Selvage came to a stop in turn four.

The green, white, checker finish saw Brown shoot out to the win, and Heskin roar from fourth to second, followed by Jeffrey, McCarl and Aaron Reutzel. Eliason, Sam Hafertepe Jr., Justin Henderson, Buddy Kofoid and Ian Madsen rounded out the top ten. Brown set quick time, while Lachlan McHugh, Hahn, Sawyer Phillips and Tasker Phillips won heats. Feature hard-charger Chase Randall claimed the B main. Cody Moroske looked to have something break on his car when he went into a series of wild flips down the frontstretch. He was uninjured.

“Chad (Morgan) made some good decisions before the main,” said Brown in Victory Lane. “It was just a phenomenal car. It was maybe better than the car we had at the Outlaw show. The team is working well together.”

Sammy Swindell led from the pole early in the 20-lap 360 main event ahead of Davey Heskin and Jamie Ball. Chase Randall passed Clint Garner on the low side of the track to gain fourth on lap three.

An outstanding battle for the lead took shape, with Heskin passing Swindell on lap four, Sammy returning the favor on lap five, and Heskin reclaiming the point on lap six. Ball followed him into second before the pair hit lapped traffic on the eight circuit. At that point, the fifth running Garner and sixth running Garet Williamson contacted and flipped in turn three. Both walked away.

Heskin led Ball, Swindell, Randall and Sawyer Phillips back to green, Randall was stuck to the bottom and got by Swindell for the third spot. Two laps later, he used the high side of turn two to take second from Ball. He used the next seven laps to close the gap on Heskin, making his winning move on the low side of turn four with two laps to go.

Chasing Randall to the line were Heskin, who finished second in both his features, Ball, Swindell and Riley Goodno. Ryan Leavitt, Scott Bogucki, Sawyer Phillips, Kelby Watt and Tasker Phillips completed the top ten. 46 cars were split into two groups of qualifying, with Sawyer Phillips and Tyler Groenendyk setting quick time in their respective groups. Josh Higday, Chris Martin, Tasker Phillips and Leavitt won the heats. Ben Brown and Jack Anderson won the B mains.

“I was doing a lot of searching there towards the middle of the race,” said Randall in Victory Lane. “(Heskin) got really far out, and I had to do whatever I could to make that ground up. I took the wing back a little more and tried to run the bottom as hard as I could. My Dad did a great job setting up the car. To come from seventh with as many good cars as we had was unbelievable.”

Josh Jones took the lead from the second row and pulled away early in the 15-lap Pro Sprints feature. Matthew Stelzer and Mike Mayberry followed until Mayberry took the runner-up spot on lap six. Matt Allen and Stelzer battled for third.

Jones car began to slow around the halfway point, and Mayberry rapidly gained on him, passing him on lap ten. Allen followed into second before Jones came to a stop with four to go. The restart saw Mayberry leading Allen, Chase Young, a surging Kade Higday and Stelzer.

While Mayberry stayed up front to the checkers for his seventh win with the Pros, Young took second, and Higday claimed third with two to go. Allen and Brandon Worthington followed. Toby Mosher, hard-charger Casey Friedrichsen, Stelzer, AJ Johnson and Ryan Navritil completed the top ten. Allen set quick time before getting upside down in his heat. He would return for the feature.. Jones and Worthington won the heats.

“We tried to give it away on the start I guess,” said Mayberry. “We’ve struggled off and on, and it’s nice to get back here in Victory Lane.”

Davey Heskin Tops Exciting $10,000 Border Battle!

Chase Randall and AJ Johnson Win Their First Knoxville Main Events in 360’s, Pros

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 10, 2023) – Davey Heskin won his first feature event at Knoxville Raceway in ten years. The St. Michael, Minnesota driver made his victory count, as he was awarded the $10,000 first prize on Slideways Border Battle Night at Knoxville. Heskin’s last win here came in May of 2013. Chase Randall won a hair-raising 360 main event. It was the Waco, Texas driver’s first at the “Sprint Car Capital of the World” and was worth $2,000. AJ Johnson also won his first career feature. The Oskaloosa, Iowa pilot was victorious in the Pro Sprints feature.

Aaron Reutzel shot out to the early lead in the 25-lap main event for the 410’s. Heskin and Chase Randall tussled for the second spot, before Heskin secured it. Reutzel was into lapped traffic on lap eight, as the top five spread out a bit. Brian Brown was fourth early, followed by Lachlan McHugh. McHugh challenged briefly for the spot before succumbing to Kerry Madsen, who took a top five spot.

Up front, Heskin was slowly reeling in Reutzel, using the bottom groove of the track and getting traction exiting both turns two and four. On the fourteenth lap, Heskin caught the low side of two just right and jetted into the lead.

The non-stop affair saw Heskin gain the popular victory ahead of Reutzel, Randall, Brown and Madsen. Austin McCarl, McHugh, Lynton Jeffrey, Sawyer Phillips and Justin Henderson rounded out the top ten. Brown set quick time over the 32-car field, while Sawyer Phillips, Tasker Phillips, Madsen and Heskin were heat winners. Kaleb Johnson won the B main.

“That’s just pretty cool,” said Heskin in Victory Lane. “You know we won the championship here a couple years ago without winning one, and it kind of hit home. I wanted to win one. That was fun! I knew it was 25 laps and I kept waiting and hitting my marks. I’m just so happy! I was a little jacked up, I was screaming in the car.”

Ryan Giles used his row one starting spot to lead the 18-lap 360 feature early, ahead of Garet Williamson, Terry McCarl, Jamie Ball and Chase Randall. McCarl and Williamson had a good battle for second, before Williamson took the spot prior to John Carney II bringing out a caution after spinning six laps in.

Williamson used the restart to shoot by Giles, but Giles would nail the bottom of turn four to lead lap eight. Williamson hit the cushion again and passed a low riding Giles again on lap nine in a wild tussle for the lead. Meanwhile, Randall had improved to third and was reeling in the leaders.

Randall rode around Giles for second with seven to go, and two laps later took a shot at Williamson that didn’t take. Williamson headed into traffic on lap 14, with Randall close behind. On lap 17, Randall performed a tight slider to barely clear Williamson, and went on to gain his first every win at Knoxville. Williamson, Giles, Davey Heskin and Ball followed. McCarl, hard-charger Clint Garner, Sammy Swindell, Kelby Watt and Jack Anderson completed the top ten. Ball set quick time over the 37-car field, and Heskin, Dustin Selvage, Swindell and Randall won heats. Josh Higday claimed the B.

“I wanted that one so much,” said Randall of his exciting win. “I’ve finished second here so many times. Second this year in the 410 and in the 360 several times. I just wanted it all year just trying to get better, watch videos and see what I can do. I think we’ve struck on something. Knoxville Raceway put on a great race. I just love racing sprint cars anywhere I can get. I’m really thankful for all the rides I’ve been given this year, and all the laps kind of lead up to this. It’s been a heck of a year and I can’t wait to see how it ends.”

AJ Johnson left little doubt that he was the one to beat from the outset of the Pro Sprints feature. He got out and left the field behind from the outset. His celebration would have to wait as the race that was scheduled for 15 laps became a 16-lap event when William Kline stopped after the leader took the white flag.

Johnson pulled away on the green, white, checker finish to win over Brandon Worthington. The restart was advantageous for Kade Higday, who rocketed from seventh to third the last two laps. Ryan Navratil would cross fourth, but be disqualified for a tire violation afterwards. Josh Jones inherited fourth over Matt Allen. Chase Young, Matthew Stelzer, Jeff Wilke, Mike Johnston and Mike Mayberry rounded out the top ten. Young set quick time, and Jones and Worthington won the heats.

“Last week you heard Chase say it, but just don’t miss your marks down on the bottom,” said Johnson in Victory Lane. “What an awesome little team here. I don’t know the last time a rookie won, but we had high hopes coming in here. We did it!”

Join us Saturday, July 1 for Mid-Season Championship Night and the Nolan Wren Memorial Presented by Higher View Enterprises!

8-lap heats added points to the drivers’ qualifying points. The top eight in points drew for their feature starting spot. Madsen led early, while McHugh made an impressive move around Jeffrey on the high side to take second. Johnson grabbed third from Goodno on the low side on lap three.

Heat two (started): 1. Austin McCarl 88 (1) 2. Henderson 83 (4) 3. Randall 2KS (2) 4. Aaron Reutzel 8 (6) 5. Juhl 09 (3) 6. Tim Estenson 14T (5) 7. Kevin Ingle 2K (8) 8. Matt Wasmund 4w (7)

Dobmeier led early, but Kaeding flew on the high side into second on lap one. He dogged the leader the rest of the way, but fell short. Tatnell won a good battle for third from Mullen on lap three. Prochaska was strong and made a slider attempt on Mullen on the last lap that fell just short.

A main (started): 1. Dobmeier (1) 2. McHugh (6) 3. Madsen (7) 4. Kaeding (4) 5. McCarl (8) 6. Tatnell (3) 7. Goodno (2) 8. Henderson (5) 9. Johnson (13) 10. Jeffrey (12) 11. Hastings (16) 12.

Thram (17) DNS – Reutzel

The 25-lapper started tough when Thram tipped over in turns one and two. He was uninjured. Dobmeier led early over Tatnell, Kaeding, Goodno and McHugh. McHugh worked by Goodno for fourth on lap three, and McCarl also moved behind him into fifth. Dobmeier was into lapped traffic on lap six. McHugh took third from Kaeding on lap eight in a goo battle. Dobmeier slid in front of the lapper of Smith and dislodged his nose wing loose. Smith’s nose wing would fly off 11 laps in, bringing caution and erasing a 3.2 second lead for Dobmeier. McHugh restarted second, ahead of Tatnell, Kaeding and McCarl. Kaeding quickly moved into third on the restart, and worked his way back by McHugh for second on lap 13. Madsen and McCarl moved into fourth and fifth on lap 14. Dobmeier was back in lapped traffic with nine to go. McHugh slid in front of Kaeding to take second back over in heavy traffic with four to go. Madsen got by Kaeding for third on the next lap. Dobmeier had no challenge and went on to the $10,000 win. Hastings was the hard-charger.

305’s

Heat one (started): 1. Koby Werkmeister 31 (2) 2. Blaine Stegenga 96 (1) 3. Brandon Buysse 24B (3) 4. Trevor Smith 33 (4) / 5. Jeremy Kerzman 3K (6) 6. Bill Johnson 56 (9) 7. Ryan Serrao 55R (5) 8. Austin Fox 11F (7) 9. Dan Griep 3D (8)

8-lap heats took the top four to the feature. Griep flipped hard to start the night off. He was unhurt, but the car was destroyed. Fox suffered top wing damage, but continued. Werkmeister led the distance.

Heat two (started): 1. Ben Crees 23c (1) 2. Chris Graf 24G (4) 3. John Lambertz 12L (5) 4. Eric Schulz 90 (2) / 5. Dusty Ballenger 2D (7) 6. Logan Domagala 4D (3) 7. Mike Stien 4s (6) 8. Dalton Domagala 18D (8) DNS – Gracyn Masur 28G

Crees led throughout. Lambertz used the low side to move by L. Domagala for the fourth and final transfer on lap two and then passed Schulz for third a lap later. The track was pretty tacky early, making it hard for drivers like D. Ballenger to make a charge.

Heat three (started): 1. Jacob Hughes 86 (2) 2. Nate Eakin 19 (6) 3. Luke Nellis 74N (1) 4. Matt Johnson 30 (5) / 5. Jeremy Schultz 33s (7) 6. Brett Allen 1300 (8) 7. Andrew Sullivan 91 (4) 8. Dominic Dobesh 9 (3)

Hughes led the distance. Eakin moved up nicely and passed Nellis for second coming for the white flag.

Heat four (started): 1. Cole Vanderheiden 15V (1) 2. Brandon Bosma 23 (5) 3. Wade Hansen 17 (2) 4. Jacob Peterson 80P (4) / 5. Trevor Serbus 10 (6) 6. Bayley Ballenger 6B (8) 7. Michael Stien 54 (3) 8. Hannah Graf 26G (7)

Vanderheiden led the distance. Bosma was the car on the move from row three. He took second from Hansen on the low side coming for the white flag.

B main one (started): 1. D. Ballenger (2) 2. Kerzman (1) / 3. Johnson (3) 4. L. Domagala (4) 5. Serrao (5) 6. Fox (6) DNS – M. Stien, D. Domagala, Griep

10-lap B’s took the top two to the A. This one was mostly single-file.

B main two (started): 1. Serbus (2) 2. J. Schultz (1) / 3. Allen (3) 4. M. Stien (6) 5. B. Ballenger (4) 6. Dobesh (7) 7. G. Masur (9) 8. H. Graf (8) 9. Sullivan (5)

J. Schultz led early, but Serbus had the high side working. He made the pass for the lead on lap three.

A main (started): 1. Buysse (2) 2. Bosma (3) 3. M. Johnson (15) 4. Stegenga (1) 5. Werkmeister (10) 6. Lambertz (6) 7. Serbus (18) 8. Hughes (7) 9. D. Ballenger (17) 10. Vanderheiden (9) 11. Eakin (11) 12. Nellis (12) 13. Crees (5) 14. J. Schultz (20) 15. Kerzman (19) 16. Peterson (16) 17. C. Graf (8) 18. T. Smith (13) 19. Hansen (4) 20. Schulz (14)

Buysse led Hansen, Stegenga and Bosma early in the 20-lapper. Things stayed that way as Buysse worked the bottom up front. Hansen slowly gained on the high side, reeling the leader in. He passed him at the start/finish line on lap 13, but jumped the cushion and flipped hard in turn one. The car was destroyed, but he was ok. Buysse led the charge again, ahead of Stegenga, Bosma, C. Graf and M. Johnson. A jumbled start saw Smith spin and flatten a left front tire, ending his night. C. Graf’s night would end in fourth when he slowed with six to go. Buysse maintained his lead, while Bosma and Stegenga battled for second. Bosma would take the spot with four ot go. Hard-charger M. Johnson would grab third coming for the white flag.

David Gravel Tops World of Outlaws Finale at Knoxville!

Garet Williamson Adds His First 360 Win to WoO Podium Finish

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 10, 2023) – David Gravel capped off the Premier Chevy Dealers NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws weekend with his eleventh career Knoxville feature win Saturday at Knoxville. The Watertown, Connecticut native earned $10,000 for his victory. Knoxville regular Garet Williamson had a great night as well, earning a podium finish with the World of Outlaws and winning his first career main event at Knoxville in the 360 class.

Gravel led from the start in the 25-lap WoO feature ahead of Friday night winner, Brian Brown, Williamson, Carson Macedo and Spencer Bayston. Macedo had the low side working, passing Williamson for third on lap two, and flying by Brown on lap eight for second. Gravel entered lapped traffic by lap nine.

Macedo looked to be tracking down Gravel when something broke in the Jason Johnson Racing #41, sending him careening into the fence. The scary incident saw a large fire extinguished by the Knoxville safety crew. Macedo was helped to the ambulance and at last report was at the Knoxville Hospital for observation.

Gravel chose the inside line on the restart and dominated the final 12 laps. Brown finished second, ahead of Williamson, Cory Eliason, who drove from sixth to fourth on the restart, and James McFadden. Brad Sweet, Gio Scelzi, Anthony Macri, Bayston and hard-charger, Logan Schuchart, who used a WoO provisional to start the event, rounded out the top ten.

McFadden and Gravel set quick time in their respective groups and won heats. Macedo and Brown also won heats. Dusty Zomer won the C main, Gravel took the Dash and Kerry Madsen claimed the B main.

“It’s pretty funny when we run tenth (on Friday) how everybody thinks that we suck,” said Gravel in Victory Lane. “I knew as a driver we made a couple mistakes last night and the car wasn’t the best either. I figured if we both cleaned it up, we’d be just fine. Hopefully, Carson Macedo is o.k. He’s a friend of mine. Even though we get into some tussles on the racetrack, he’s still my friend.”

“We’re just worried about Carson,” said Brown, who won Friday and came home second Saturday. “It doesn’t really matter where we finished. We’re so very lucky to be at Knoxville with the best fire safety crew in the entire world. It could have been much worse. Carson is a fellow competitor and you want to beat him every chance you get, but that’s just a helpless situation.”

“Honestly, on Friday, we sucked,” said Williamson, who finished a career best third with the WoO. “We went back to the drawing board and where we were at the beginning of the year. I love Knoxville, I love the atmosphere. We have great fans here, and to run third to the best right now is pretty surreal.”

Williamson’s work wasn’t done, and he carried his momentum into the 18-lap 360 feature, leading from start to finish after starting outside row one. Josh Higday ran second in the early stages, followed by Aaron Reutzel, Ryan Giles and Chase Randall. Randall moved by Giles for fourth three laps in, before Kelby Watt took a wild ride in turn four. He was uninjured.

Williamson led the field back to green. Reutzel picked off Higday for second on lap six, but could never reel in Williamson who hit lapped traffic on lap ten. Randall would challenge for second, but settle for third, ahead of hard-charger Clint Garner and Jamie Ball. Higday, Terry McCarl, Jake Bubak, Alex Hill and Cam Martin completed the top ten. Sawyer Phillips and Giles crashed hard on the frontstretch after the checkers were thrown. Both were o.k.

Phillips set quick time over the 34-car field, while Randall, Williamson, Cam Martin and Alex Vande Voort won heats. Tyler Groenendyk won the B main. Joe Beaver also crashed hard in his heat race. He also walked away.

“This is everything,” said Williamson of his first Knoxville win. “I came here when I was 16 for my first Nationals, and watched Jason Johnson win this thing. I saw how much it meant to him, and I told myself I’d come stand in this Victory Lane, no matter what it took. This place is so special. This moment will always stick with me. We’ve been wanting to get this so bad. It means a lot for us.”

Join us next Saturday, June 17 for Slideways Night! The 410 class will be competing for a $10,000 top prize as part of the “Border Battle” Series with Jackson Motorplex in Minnesota (Friday) and Huset’s Speedway in South Dakota (Sunday). The Pro Sprints and 360’s will also be in action! For more information on the Knoxville Raceway, visit us online at www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com!

Brian Brown Thumps World of Outlaws at Knoxville!

Chase Young Wins Pro Sprints Feature

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 9, 2023) – Brian Brown won one for the Knoxville regulars Friday night on Premier Chevy Dealers Night featuring the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws. The win was Brown’s 63rd career victory at Knoxville, was worth $10,000 and came aboard the Brian Brown Racing #21. Chase Young won his second career feature here in the Pro Sprints Class.

Austin McCarl earned the pole and led the 25-lap WoO main event early ahead of Brown, James McFadden, Rico Abreu and Brad Sweet. While McCarl found the low groove to his liking, Brown hit the high side and rocketed into the lead on the high side of turn two on the second circuit.

Brown pulled away from McCarl before entering lapped traffic on lap ten. Sweet used the low groove to pass Abreu for fourth at the halfway point. With ten to go, Brown had built nearly a three second lead on McCarl, while the race for second, third and fourth heated up.

Sweet cruised by McFadden on lap 16, and then drove under McCarl into second with six to go. Abreu’s car was also working well late, and he took fourth from McFadden with five to go, and shot around McCarl for third with two laps remaining.

Up front, Brown had no peer to the checkers. Abreu shot by Sweet for second in the last corner, and McCarl and Carson Macedo completed the top five. McFadden, Gio Scelzi, Logan Schuchart, hard-charger Donny Schatz and David Gravel rounded out the top ten. Macedo and Abreu set quick time over their respective groups and won their heat races. Gravel and Brown were also heat winners. Chase Randall took the C main, McCarl won the Dash and Aaron Reutzel claimed the B main.

“I ran as hard the last lap as I did the first lap,” said Brown of his victory. “I kept watching the board seeing the 49 was in second. We’re clicking on all cylinders right now. I was so proud to see Austin on the pole and us starting third. To have a rivalry (with the WoO) you need to beat these guys. I feel like we don’t do it enough. I’ve been known to run the top probably more than I should. I think I’ve run the bottom just as well as I ever have in the past. I felt like when I went down there it was pretty good. I knew Brad runs the bottom as well as anybody in the world, so if anything else I could mess up his timing. And Rico…you never know. He’s having a phenomenal year. I’m proud of this team. Come back tomorrow and see if we can do it again.”

“The last ten laps I could hit my marks a whole lot better,” said Abreu. “Outlaw races are tough to come by to get wins. We’re right there in the hunt, so if we can consistently do this…this is the greatest time I’ve had driving sprint cars. Once I got some clean air on my nose, I could get through the corners a lot faster. I got by McCarl and it opened the top up to me to run down Sweet. I just rifled through there and turned down the hill in four to barely sneak by (Sweet at the finish).

“I felt really good in the middle part of the race,” said Sweet. “I kept looking up because I thought I was making good time and good laps. I could see Brian was pretty far ahead. I just kind of got caught up in lapped cars at the end. I had a really good rhythm and had the lines working. I felt when I had to move off that, I wasn’t as good as I needed to be in the lapped cars. I think we made progress all night long, and there were parts in the A main where I felt I was as good as anyone.”

Chase Young led from the pole from the outset in the 15-lap Pro Sprints feature ahead of Matt Allen and J Kinder. Matthew Stelzer, who was slated for the front row outside, had trouble making the call, and slowed one lap in, and retired.

On the restart, Kade Higday shot from fourth to second in an attempt to run down Young. Young approached the lapper of William Kline on lap nine and slowed. Higday gained on him and the pair split Kline with Young keeping his lead on the low side, and Higday challenging up top. Kline would slow with two laps to go, setting up a green, white, checker finish.

Young pulled away for his second career win here, ahead of Higday, Mike Mayberry, hard-charger Ryan Navritil and Allen. Kinder, AJ Johnson, Brandon Worthington, Toby Mosher and Mike Johnston completed the top ten. Allen set quick time and won his heat. Josh Jones won the other heat.

“We were able to stick the bottom,” said Young of his winning run. “That’s pretty much it with our class unless you have to pass. Hit your marks. It was pretty slick in one and two, but I could just hammer three and four. It was a rough night for us a little bit, but we were out in clean air. We’ve been knocking at the door. We’ve been really fast all year. I’m just happy to finally get ‘er done!”

Join us Saturday night for the Premier Chevy Dealers World of Outlaws finale! The Knoxville 360 class will also be in action! For more information on the Knoxville Raceway, visit us online at www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com!

6/6/23

Eagle Raceway

Eagle, NE

High Limit Series

40 cars

The first 410 race at Eagle since 2017 saw a packed house assembled with traffic backed up until heat races were starting.

Two flights of qualifying were used. Buddy Kofoid (2nd car out to time) set quick time in the first group and quick time overall at 11.354 seconds on the 1/3-mile oval. It was about three-tenths of a second off Sammy Swindell’s record of 11.076. Dusty Zomer (20th car out) was second quick in the first group, followed by Chase Randall (13th), Brent Marks (15th) and Austin McCarl (17th). Don Droud Jr., Frank Rodgers III and Riley Kreisel failed to get a time in. Anthony Macri (9th car out to time) set quick time in the second group at 11.474 seconds. He was followed by Cole Macedo (3rd car out), Rico Abreu (16th), Tyler Courtney (18th) and Aaron Reutzel (6th).

Heat one (started): 1. Kofoid 71 (1) 2. Kyle Larson 57 (4) 3. Randall 9 (2) 4. A. McCarl 88 (3) 5. Gio Scelzi 18 (7) / 6. Brandy Bacon 21H (8) 7. Jake Swanson 55B (6) 8. Sam Hafertepe Jr. 15H (5) 9. Adam Gullion 91 (9) 10. Frank Rodgers III 6x (10)

8-lap heats were lined straight up by time, the same as the World of Outlaws and most late model series. As is usually the case, heats showed little excitement. The top two went to the Dash, and Larson took that spot from Randall low in turn four on lap two. That was all the movement.

Heat two (started): 1. Zomer 3J (1) 2. Marks 19 (2) 3. Ryan Timms 5T (3) 4. Jake Bubak 1x (4) 5. Robbie Price 7s (5) / 6. Matt Juhl 09 (6) 7. Tim Estenson 14T (7) 8. Ayrton Gennetten 19G (8) 9. Don Droud Jr. 1m (9) DNS – Riley Kreisel 91K

They finished where they started. Gennetten stopped a lap in but continued. Droud exited early.

Heat three (started): 1. Macri 39m (1) 2. Abreu 24 (2) 3. Reutzel 8 (3) 4. Zeb Wise 26 (4) 5. Corey Day 14D (6) / 6. Brian Brown 21 (5) 7. Riley Goodno 22 (9) 8. Blake Hahn 52 (8) 9. Carson McCarl 6 (7) 10. Cody Ledger 35L (10)

Single-file.

Heat four (started): 1. Courtney 7BC (2) 2. Macedo 14 (1) 3. Cory Eliason 11 (4) 4. Danny Dietrich 48 (3) 5. Lachlan McHugh 25 (6) / 6. Jack Dover 53 (5) 7. Kasey Kahne 9T (7) 8. Kaleb Johnson 22K (8) 9. Tyler Drueke 12 (9) 10. Jason Martin 81 (10)

Courtney led the distance over Macedo. McHugh used the high side of turn four to snatch the fifth and final transfer from Dover on lap three.

Dash (started): 1. Abreu (2) 2. Marks (1) 3. Macri (3) 4. Larson (7) 5. Kofoid (4) 6. Zomer (5) 7. Macedo (6) 8. Courtney (8)

Boring heats can lead to exciting racing later on, and the track started widening in the 7-lap Dash that set the starting order for the first four rows of the feature. Marks led early over Abreu, Macri and Kofoid. Abreu used a diamond move in three and four to take the lead on lap two. Courtney slowed to a stop and exited with steering gear issues with three to go. That negated a pass Larson had made for fourth. He used a diamond move in three and four to take the spot anyway after the green flew again.

B main (started): 1. Hafertepe (1) 2. Bacon (3) 3. Brown (2) 4. Dover (4) / 5. Swanson (7) 6. Goodno (6) 7. Juhl (5) 8. Kahne (8) 9. Hahn (10) 10. Estenson (9) 11. Johnson (12) 12. C. McCarl (14) 13. Gennetten (11) 14. J. Martin (18) 15. Ledger (17) 16. Drueke (15) 17. Gullion (13) 18. Rodgers (16) DNS – Droud, Kreisel

The 12-lapper took the top four to the A. Hafertepe led wire to wire in the non-stop race. Bacon got under Brown for second on lap eight. Dover held off the rest for the final transfer.

A main (started): 1. Larson (4) 2. Abreu (1) 3. Scelzi (17) 4. Kofoid (5) 5. Macri (3) 6. Randall (9) 7. Wise (14) 8. Bubak (15) 9. Reutzel (10) 10. Day (18) 11. Eliason (12) 12. Timms (11) 13. A. McCarl (13) 14. Bacon (22) 15. Dietrich (16) 16. Price (19) 17. Brown (23) 18. Goodno (26, prov.) 19. Hahn (25, prov.) 20. Hafertepe (21) 21. Zomer (6) 22. Macedo (7) 23. Marks (2) 24. Courtney (8) 25. McHugh (20) 26. Dover (24)

A large pyrotechnic event preceded the 40-lapper. Abreu cut out early in front of Marks, Macri and Larson. He was in lapped traffic by the eighth circuit. Larson got by Macri for third before McHugh took a tumble in turn three. He was unhurt. Rico chose the inside line over Marks, Larson, Macri and Kofoid. Marks reeled in Abreu and on lap 19, he ducked under him in turn four to take the lead. Larson followed him by Abreu two laps later to claim second. Courtney slowed and exited at that point. Kofoid dove under Abreu on the restart to claim third, while Randall had moved up to fifth. On lap 26, Marks hit a hole in turn one, bicycled and biffed it. He was unhurt. Larson chose the inside line in assuming the lead, ahead of Kofoid, Abreu, Randall and Macri. Randall quickly took third before a turned over Macedo with 11 to go. Hafertepe also suffered damage and retired. The final restart saw Larson leading Kofoid, Randall and Abreu. Abreu was fire after the restart, taking third and then claiming second from Kofoid late in the going. Abreu pressured and did all he could to run down Larson to no avail, despite sliding in front of him a couple times in a good race. Scelzi was third at the hard-charger worth $2,500. Larson took home $28,023 thanks to a $5,000 bonus from Phil Durst.
