FLOWDYNAMICS McCARTHY & WILLIAMS TO RACE IN JONES/SCHEETZ MEMORIAL

(Ontario, CA, June 24, 2022) Flowdynamics Sprint car drivers Logan Williams and Matt McCarthy will both be back in action this Saturday night in the USAC/CRA Bubby Jones/Ray Scheetz Memorial at Perris Auto Speedway. It will be the fourth appearance for each at their local track in 2022.

The team comes into Saturday’s race with Williams fifth in the standings, only 21-points out of fourth. McCarthy enters the night not far behind his teammate in ninth.

Through the first three races at the Riverside County half-mile clay oval in 2022, McCarthy has a seventh and a 15th place finish. He did not start the April 30th main event due to an annoying fuel line problem. In his three appearances at The PAS this year, Williams best finish has been a sixth. In his other two outings, he has finished 11th.

After Saturday’s race, Williams, who calls Yorba Linda, California home, and Riverside, California’s McCarthy, get next week’s holiday weekend off. They will return to action on July 8th and 9th when they journey to Central California to race at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford on Friday and Stone Chevrolet, Buick, GMC Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare on Saturday.

The USAC/CRA schedule initially had a six-week break between the two July races in the Central Valley and the August 20th date at Perris. That break has been shortened to four weeks with the announcement that the Santa Maria Raceway was going to reopen with a USAC/CRA show on August 6th. The track, which has hosted regular visits from the series since its inception in 2004, has been shuttered since last July. When the team last appeared at Santa Maria on July 3rd, 2021, Williams finished eighth in the main event with McCarthy right behind him in ninth.

Saturday’s race at Perris salutes National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Bubby Jones and his long-time crew chief, Ray Scheetz. Jones’s son Tony, a past USAC/CRA champion and now the series race director, has a tie to the Flowdynamics operation. When McCarthy was a rookie, Jones served as a driver coach and team advisor.

Spectator gates for the Bubby Jones/Ray Scheetz Memorial will open at 5:00 p.m. with racing at 7:00. Adult tickets are $30.00. For seniors 65 and over it is $25.00. Kids 6-12 are $5.00 and children five and under are free. The fairgrounds charges $10.00 for parking. There will be plenty of tickets for everyone at the ticket window on Saturday, this event will not sell out. For those who wish to purchase tickets in advance, they are available 24 hours a day online at https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7 or by phone at 1-800-595-4849.

Perris Auto Speedway is located on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds at 18700 Lake Perris Drive in The City of Perris (92571). Take the 215 Freeway, exit at the Ramona Expressway, and go three miles east to the Fairgrounds.

Reinhardt Highlights Challenging Ohio Speedweek with Top 10 at Sharon
Portsmouth, OH – June 24, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Kyle Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91 team came into their second Ohio Speedweek more prepared than they were for their first shot at it in 2021.

The grind delivered by the nine day racing extravaganza is tough for a team even if everything goes well. Add in issues and it gets exponentially tougher. Ohio Speedweek is a true test of what a team is made of. Just to survive is an accomplishment.

2022 Ohio Speedweek Quick Results

6/10: Attica Raceway Park / 39 cars, Qualifying 7th, Heat 7th (7), B-main 6th (7)

6/11: Fremont Speedway / 44 cars, Qualifying 6th, Heat 5th (6), B-main 3rd (4), A-main 20th (23)

6/12: Fremont Speedway / 38 cars, Qualifying 1st, Heat 5th (4), Dash 4th (2), A-main 23rd (4)

6/13: Wayne County Speedway / 42 cars, Qualifying 2nd, Heat 1st (1), Dash 9th (5), A-main 18th (9)

6/14: Sharon Speedway / 41 cars, Qualifying 5th, Heat 5th (5), B-main 2nd (3), A-main 10th (22)

6/15: Atomic Speedway / 43 cars, Qualifying 1st, Heat 6th (4), B-main 2nd (1), A-main 15th (22)

6/16: Waynesfield Raceway Park / 36 cars, Qualifying 4th, Heat 5th (3), A-main 15th (18)

6/17: Limaland Motorsports Park / 36 cars, Qualifying 8th, Heat 3rd (8), A-main 13th (12)

6/18: Portsmouth Raceway Park / 45 cars, Qualifying 3rd, Heat 3rd (2), A-main 12th (14)

On night one of the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions 2022 Ohio Sprint Speedweek at Attica Raceway Park, Kyle Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade No.91 team battled engine issues and missed the main event.

Then came night two at Fremont Speedway. A subpar qualifying effort left the team with an uphill climb just to make the show. Reinhardt managed to wheel his way into the show through the B-main and came home 20th in the A-main.

It wasn’t the confidence-building start to the series that Reinhardt and his team wanted, but in the sport of sprint car racing there will be nights like those. The only answer is to keep working, keep digging.

Back at Fremont Speedway again for night three, things got off to a good start. Reinhardt timed quickest in his group and transferred to the feature event through his heat, giving him a spot in the dash. After earning the 4th starting spot for the 30-lap feature A-main, the Neptune City, NJ native wheeled his way into 3rd on the opening lap and appeared poised for a podium finish to turn his week around.

Unfortunately, just after Reinhardt navigated his way into 2nd during lap seven, the opportunity slipped away when he got over the top edge of the racetrack. He found himself in the work area soon after. He rejoined the field but had to settle for 23rd place finish.

Reinhardt got night four off on the right foot at Wayne County Speedway by timing second quick in his group and grabbing the victory in his heat race. Things changed at that point. The team battled a tight race car the remainder of the night, sliding from 5th to 9th in the 6-lap dash and from 9th to 18th in the 25-lap A-main, resulting in a disappointing end to what started out as a promising night.

The halfway point of the week, night five, brought the traveling caravan to Sharon Speedway in eastern Ohio. Reinhardt missed the transfer in his heat race by one spot and was relegated to the B-main but was able to make his way into the A-main with a 2nd place finish in the last chance race.

One of the highlights of the week was Reinhardt’s charge from 22nd to 10th during the 30-lap main event. The effort earned Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team the Hard Charger award for the night.

Night six at Atomic Speedway started off with Reinhardt looking strong out of the gate. He recorded the quickest time in his group for the second time during Speedweek. The lap was good enough for third best of the entire 43 car field. Things didn’t go quite according to plan after that. He was unable to transfer through his heat, losing a spot in the dash and ending up in the B-main instead. Reinhardt put his No.91 in the main event at Atomic with a second place finish in the B-main, then raced from 22nd to 15th in the 30-lap finale.

Waynesfield Raceway Park was the site of the seventh consecutive night of racing during Ohio Speedweek. While running in 3rd during his heat race, Kyle Reinhardt and another competitor made contact on the home stretch, sending the No.91 spinning and changing the course of the Capitol Renegade team’s night. Reinhardt restarted at the back and recovered to a 5th place finish to get into the A-main but was only able to climb to a 15th place finish in the 30-lap finale.

Reinhardt was behind the eight ball after qualifying on night eight at Limaland Motorsports Park. His eighth best time in his group placed him outside row four for his heat race. A strong run in that 8-lap heat race turned his night around. He wheeled his J&J Auto Racing No.91 around the high side of the quarter-mile bullring, charging from 8th to 3rd on the slick, dusty surface. In the 25-lap A-main, Reinhardt came home 13th and earned the All Stars’ Perseverance Award for the effort of the entire Capitol Renegade team.

The 9-night Ohio Speedweek finale took place in southern Ohio at Portsmouth Raceway Park, a high-banked, fast 3/8-mile track. Reinhardt registered the 3rd best lap in his group and 10th quickest in the entire 45 car field. He proceeded to wheel his Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants No.91 to a 3rd place finish in heat number one and a 12th place finish in the final A-main of the series.

“We just couldn’t seem to catch a break. We were really good a few nights but couldn’t capitalize. Other nights we were off a little and had to fight just to run mid-pack.“, Reinhardt commented.

While the results of their Speedweek didn’t meet the Capitol Renegade team’s expectations and goals, there were bright spots to build on, including a consistent stretch of five top 15 finishes over the final five night. In 2021, the team only managed two top-15’s and didn’t crack the top ten, so there was progress. A couple missed opportunities kept the stats from looking better during the 2022 edition of the summer tradition.

“We only missed one show and that was due to an engine issue. The fields are big at these shows and it’s not easy to qualify, so it’s a positive to make 8 of 9, but we just aren’t running as well as we know we can. We are going to regroup and be ready when the All Star schedule resumes.”

Reinhardt was alluding to the fact that the Capitol Renegade team has changed their original plan to run at least part of Pennsylvania Speedweek. Instead, the No.91 will sit out due to engine issues and prepare for the second half of the tour schedule.

Up Next

The 31st Annual Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup at Lernerville Speedway will be the next event on the schedule for Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team. The July 7th event will pay an attractive sum of $25,000 to the victor.

Reinhardt will get a little seat time during PA Speedweek though. He will fill the seat of John Westbrook’s 1W for four events. He will race both stops at Williams Grove Speedway, plus BAPS Motor Speedway and Hagerstown Speedway. Reinhardt wheeled Westbrook’s 360 sprint car a few years ago and the pair had a lot of success, winning numerous races and claiming the Selinsgrove Speedway championship.

PASS Returns to Path Valley Saturday

The PA Sprint Series returns to its roots Saturday at the quarter-mile “bullring” Path Valley Speedway.

The IMCA/RaceSaver sprints will make their third of six scheduled visits to the track that has hosted them since their second season, 2000, for a 25-lap feature and qualifying events. Modifieds, Central PA Legends, 600 micro sprints, 4-cylinder thunder cars and 4-cylinder strictly stocks also are on the program.

Kruz Kepner of Kreamer and Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery have won the two features contested so far at Path Valley, and both are expected to be on hand. Bard also is the winningest active PASS driver at Path with four victories, one more than Ken Duke Jr. of Selinsgrove. Mikell McGee of nearby Doylesburg, a descendant of the track founders, is the defending division champion.

Kepner and Bard current stand third and fourth in PASS points, behind leader Austin Reed and runner-up Doug Dodson.

While he didn’t run in the first PASS race at Path Valley, veteran racer Mike Alleman of Port Royal was in the field for other races during that first season, and he has preregistered for Saturday’s event as well.

ROA HOPES TO GO ONE SPOT BETTER AT PERRIS – NEW SHIRTS ARE IN

(Cypress, CA, June 23, 2022) Fresh off a second-place finish two weeks ago at the Ventura Raceway, veteran sprint car driver Brody Roa hopes to take one step higher on the podium when the USAC/CRA Sprint car series returns to Perris Auto Speedway Saturday night for the inaugural Bubby Jones/Ray Scheetz Memorial. It will be Roa’s last scheduled Southern California appearance before heading to the Midwest for Indiana

Roa has been at his strongest point of the season over the last two races. On May 28th at Perris, he was the third-fastest qualifier, won his third USAC/CRA heat race of the year, and got his first series podium finish when he placed third. Two weeks later in Ventura, he was the eighth-fastest qualifier, came home second in his heat, and then finished second in the 30-lap main event.

After the main event at Ventura, Roa was lauded by many for how he conducted himself during the main event. Despite having what appeared to be the better car, he ran in second the entire distance. Early on he made a couple of tries on the outside, but there was nothing there. The track was a single lane on the bottom. Roa bided his time and patiently waited for the leader to slip up and slide off the pole. That never happened. Instead of driving thru the leader and risking wrecking the leader’s car and his own, Roa played it safe, came home in second, and praised the winner for the fine job he did. Likewise, the winner praised Roa for his clean driving.

Roa has competed in six of the first 11 USAC/CRA races in 2022. He has a series-best main event finishing average of 4.33. That is nearly ¾ of a position better than the driver with the second-best average.

Great news for Roa, the other series drivers, and fans is the announcement that the Santa Maria Raceway is set to reopen on August 6th. The track that closed nearly a year ago, has seen Roa do his best work in recent seasons. Dating back to July 1st, 2017, the Garden Grove, California driver has raced 410 sprint cars seven times on the banked, 1/3 mile Santa Barbara County clay oval. He won three of those seven races, placed second two times, and was fourth once. The only time he finished out of the top four was when he placed ninth on October 5th, 2019. His finishing average in those seven races is a phenomenal 2.85.

In 2022, Roa will race USAC/CRA, USAC National, and other select events, in his #91R BR Performance/HD Industries Eagle. He will also drive the #8M for May Motorsports in select USAC West Coast events. The 2019 USAC Southwest and 2017 USAC West Coast champion is always open to discussing other driving opportunities.

Roa and the team want to thank the following sponsors for making the 2022 season possible. HD Industries, Burris Racing, Sander Engineering, Inland Rigging, Caltrol, “Biker” Bruce Fischer, Competition Suspension, ALR Virtual Services, K-1 Race Gear, Molecule, Rod End Supply, Driven Racing Oil, Baldwin Filters, and NGK Spark Plugs. In addition, the veteran driver offers thanks to RDM Mechanics, Fastenal, Coopers Propane, Ten West Towing, Ten West Environmental, TJM Distribution, and Westco International for sponsoring the #8M he will pilot for Jayson May on 10 occasions in 2022.

If you or your company would like to jump on board and receive recognition as a team partner throughout the 2022 racing season, please give the two-time USAC champion racer a phone call or drop him a note at the contact information on the top of this release.

Fans can learn more about Roa and the team at https://www.brodyroa.com/. Fans can also check out the team news at Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/br91r/.

GALE’S CASH BLAST 50 HEADLINES JUNE 24 OHSWEKEN EVENT

By Tommy Goudge

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (June 23, 2022) – The 25th season of Friday Night Excitement at Ohsweken Speedway continues this Friday, June 24 when Gale’s Auto Aftermarket presents the Gale’s Cash Blast 50 for the Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stock division, plus Friday Night Excitement with the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland’s Crate Sprint Cars, and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks.

Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks Dave Bailey leads the Thunder stock championship standings after three rounds, but just 26 points separate the top five heading into their first 50 lap event of the season; Ryan Beagle, Chris Hale, Trevor DeBoer, and Mike Klazinga are Bailey’s closest competitors, while Kyle Wert scored his first career Thunder Stock win last Friday. Endurance and patience are the name of the game this week though as the Thunder Stock drivers will race more than twice their regular distance and contend with handicapping for the first time this season.

Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak Sprint Cars Cory Turner took the win last Friday and assumed the championship points lead as a result. Turner and brother Ryan have asserted themselves as title contenders, but a host of competitors are ready to challenge them. A trio of Crate Sprint Car graduates – Josh Hansen, Aaron Turkey, and Liam Martin – are giving chase, while former track champs Glenn Styres and Jim Huppunen are lurking just outside the top five in the standings.

Strickland’s Crate Sprint Cars Darren Dryden has won both Crate Sprint Car events to start the season and leads the championship standings as a result. Eric Gledhill, Lucas Smith, Brett Stratford, and Jesse Costa have used consistency to occupy the remainder of the top five, and headline a large group of drivers who are capable of stopping Dryden’s streak this week.

HRW Automotive Mini Stocks Tyler Lafantaisie took his third consecutive Mini Stock win last Friday and leads the championship standings, but he and the other top contenders will now be confronted with handicapping starting this Friday. Nick Erskine is the only other Mini Stock driver with three top fives to start the season and sits second in the standings, followed by Jason Tolton, defending champ Dusty DeBoer, and Tristan DaSilva New Electronic Pit Waiver Please click this link to sign the Annual Pit Waiver if you plan on attending in the Pit Area in 2022: https://ohsspeed.speedwaiver.com/kinxf

Ryan Giles to continue 2022 campaign with 360 sprint action at Knoxville Raceway

ByTyler Altmeyer Jun 23, 2022

GRIMES, Iowa (June 23, 2022) – Grimes, Iowa’s Ryan Giles is set to continue his 2022 campaign with a clear mind and fresh start, ready to pilot his family-owned No. 9 in the 360 sprint car division at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa. A familiar face in the 360 sprint ranks for several years, Giles will focus the remainder of his season on consistency, race wins, and above all, a strong showing at the 360 Knoxville Nationals.

Giles, a former Knoxville Raceway 360 Rookie of the Year and 360 Knoxville Nationals preliminary winner, will resume action when the 360 sprint cars make their return to Knoxville for the Mid-Season Championship on July 2.

“I’ve been given a great opportunity to return to 360 sprint car competition in my own cars and I’m really excited to race again with my own team,” Ryan Giles explained. “There’s still a lot of racing left on the calendar, so we’re going to do our best to perform well in the remaining Knoxville events. We may make time to visit Jackson or I-80 at the end of the year, but for now, we’ll keep our focus on Knoxville.

“A big thanks to our friends at Albaugh LLC, Iowa Barnstormers, Hicklin Powersports, Barron Equipment, and Omega Concrete Mixers,” Giles added. “We’re proud to have them join us in this new venture and it certainly wouldn’t be possible without their support.”

The 32nd running of the 360 Knoxville Nationals will highlight Giles’ 2022 season, set to commence on Thursday, August 4, and extending through Saturday, August 6.

SPECIAL THANKS: Ryan Giles would like to thank all his marketing partners including: Albaugh, LLC., Iowa Barnstormers, Hicklin Powersports, Barron Equipment, and Omega Concrete Mixers.

Tri-City Raceway Prepares for Holiday Spectacular

 
(Franklin, PA June 23, 2022):  The staff and management of Tri-City Raceway Park have another Sunday Thunder event, on June 26, to get ready before the big blow-out over the July 4 holiday weekend. “Just like the racers, we want to keep the momentum going,” said track owner, Merle Black. “We had two great races, Western PA Speedweek and a regular show, and now we have one more race to work out the details before the big holiday extravaganza,” he added.
 
With a pair of Shawgo Real Estate, LLC Sprint Car races in the books, A.J. Flick finds himself on top of the early championship rankings. Flick has a win and a second place finish so far, and he hopes to score again this Sunday. Sitting six points back is young Chase Metheney. Veterans Jack Sodeman, Jr. and Carl Bowser are third and fourth, Versatile Rod Jones, who has raced in several different classes over the years, holds down the fifth place.
 
Defending track champion, Brandon Matus, was unable to start last week’s event, so he is way down in the standings. Watch for him to start the long climb back this weekend.
 
Bob Felmlee also has to recover from tough luck last week. He crashed in turn four and did not finish that race. He will be ready to compete for the win!
 
Many other top runners will be on hand, including Brent Matus, Jeremy Weaver, Logan McCandless, and Leyton Wagner. Will the Ohio racer, Ricky Peterson, be back? He scored his first career win in dominating fashion last Sunday.
 
Jimmy Holden used his first win of the season to catapult into the points lead in the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modified ranks. Kevin Hoffman trails by four markers, and New Yorker Nick Joy is five behind Holden. Jeremiah Singledecker and Mike Kinney are also within striking distance. Further back are Kyle Fink, Travis Shingledecker, Eric Beggs, and Kevin Green. Will Lonnie Riggs be back? Mechanical problems sidelined him last week and he will be looking to rebound soon.
 
Jason Johns and Chris Schneider are tied atop the standings in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks after one round of action. Pat Fielding, Josh Seippel, Rod Laskey, Curtis J. Bish, and Charlie McMillen can all move up with a good finish this week.
 
Levi Maskal has staked himself to a double digit lead in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. Maskal is two for two so far, which is no mean feat considering the tough competition in this affordable class. More than two dozen racers have already tried their luck on the big, fast half mile oval.
 
Racing will begin at 6 p.m., with practice commencing at approximately 5:15. The Pit gates will open at 2 p.m. Spectators can gain admission to the grounds at 4 p.m. to get their favorite seats.
 
Regular event ticket pricing will apply. So, adults (ages 16 to 62) will be admitted for $15, and seniors (ages 62 and up) will be admitted for $13. Student tickets (for those aged 10 to 16) will be $10. Children (up to age 10) will be admitted for free. The Family Pass will be $45, and that will be good for two adults of any age and two students. Pit Passes will be $30.
 
If you cannot make it to Tri-City Raceway Park this weekend, remember that there will be three nights of action, and more, over the Independence Day holiday. Friday, July 1, will be reserved as a practice session for all classes. There will be free grandstand admission that night. Competition will begin on Saturday night, July 2, with the Shawgo Real Estate, LLC 410 Sprints, the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds, and the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. There will also be qualifying for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks. Sunday, July 3, will see the return of the ground pounding Big Block Modifieds from the BRP Tour.

ROOKIE WILL BROWNE DOING DOUBLE DUTY SATURDAY AT VENTURA

(Glendora, California, June 22, 2022) When lightning sprint car rookie Will Browne arrives at Jim Naylor’s Ventura Raceway this Saturday night, he will be prepared to be a very busy driver. In addition to driving his familiar “Win Now Racing” #8 in the California Lightning Sprint Car Series, the recent Glendora High School graduate will also be debuting in the WMR Midget Series in the Paul Sanders owned #22.
 

Browne, 18, who lives in Glendora, California, jumped into the lightning sprint car racing scene this year after winning the pro 500 speedway sprint championship last season at Wheel2Wheel Raceway in Victorville. Thus far, he has looked more like a seasoned veteran rather than a rookie in his new endeavor. The teen has finished in the top 10 in each of his eight main event starts. His only finish out of the top six was a ninth in the CLS season opener on March 25th at the Bakersfield Speedway. Four of his finishes have been in the top five including fourth-place results at the Merced Speedway on April 2nd and Bakersfield on the 14th of May. He has a fine 5.75 main event finishing percentage through his first eight lightning sprint races.

Browne’s initial starts in a lightning car came in the POWRi Southwest Lightning Sprint Car Series at the Imperial Valley Raceway on March 5th and 6th. The raw rookie gave a great account of himself with a sixth-place finish on opening night. The next afternoon, under difficult daytime track conditions, he bettered his previous night’s performance when he crossed under the checkered flag in fifth.

Since that time, all of Browne’s racing has been with the 28-year-old California Lightning Sprint Car Series. In his last three races with the CLS he has a fourth, fifth and sixth. His fine performances have him heading into Ventura fifth in the CLS championship standings and in the lead for the Rookie Of The Year award. The next highest newcomer is eighth in the standings and 218 points behind Browne.

While this is Browne’s inaugural season in lightning sprints, he is not new to racing. In 2017, he and his father and crew chief, Todd Browne, started racing dirt karts at Wheel2Wheel Raceway in Victorville. The next year he graduated to the restrictor sprint class and was named Rookie Of The Year. He hit the pavement and raced spec trucks at the Irwindale Speedway in 2020 in the Lucas Oil Race Truck Series. He adapted quickly to the pavement, finished second in points, and was named Rookie Of The Year. Last season he returned to the dirt and won the previously mentioned pro 500 speedway sprint championship at Wheel2Wheel last year.

While this piece was being put together, word came that Browne may only be racing in the WMR Midget portion of Saturday’s program as there was a bearing going bad in the engine of his lightning sprint. Hopes are to get his car fixed or to find another ride for the CLS portion of the program.

If you would like to see the talented newcomer in action at Ventura on Saturday, spectator gates will open at 3:00 p.m. and the first race will be at 5:30. Adult tickets are $18.00. For seniors 60 and over, military with ID, and students with an ID it is $15.00. Children 12 and under are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. The Ventura Raceway is located on the Ventura County Fairgrounds at 10 W. Harbor Boulevard (93001). The track website is http://venturaraceway.com/ and the office phone number is (805) 648-RACE.

Be sure to visit Browne’s website at https://willbrowneracing.com/. It is filled with information on him and has some interesting videos.

Will Browne and his team would like to thank the following marketing partners for being a part of his rookie season in lightning sprint cars. Pacific Panel Products, Tucker Tire, and Ann Blanco Homes. If you would like to join the friendly newcomer in his rookie campaign, drop an email or give him a call at the following: willbrowne88@gmail.com or (626) 261-5310.

Austin Hartmann fulfills World of Outlaws A main dreams at Beaver Dam Raceway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 22, 2022 – In just the 10th Winged 410 Sprint Car event of his career, Austin Hartmann of Plymouth, Wis. earned a spot alongside the top Sprint Car drivers in the world as he qualified for his first career NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series A-main event at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Saturday, June 18 in the second half of a doubleheader weekend of World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series action for the 87A Hartmann Racing team.

In his World of Outlaws Series debut on Friday, June 17, Hartmann qualified 22nd in the 33 car field with a lap of 11.528 seconds on the lightning-fast, high-banked, third-mile Beaver Dam Raceway clay oval.

After lining up sixth in the second World of Outlaws heat race, Hartmann’s maiden voyage with the WoO was short-lived as contact with J.J. Hickle as the green flag dropped resulted in heavy damage to his Kristine Hartmann of Pleasant View Realty sponsored machine, which forced the team to retire from the race and scratch for the remainder of the event.

“Coming into Friday, I knew I had to set a good qualifying lap to put us in a good position for the heat race,” Hartmann said. “The car felt great in qualifying and laid down a decent time. The start of the heat race didn't go as planned and got a bad start, which allowed the car inside of me to come up the track and he spun the tires getting loose, made a driver mistake and I ended up hitting the wall pretty hard.

“The contact damaged the rear end and rear suspension, front end, right front shock, top wing and chassis,” he said. “Thankfully, Scotty Neitzel and Rick Lemanski from R&H Enterprises took us in and got a new bar welded in late Friday night. Without them, that incident would've ended our weekend. I can’t thank them enough.”

On Saturday, June 18, Hartmann again turned in the 22nd fastest qualifying lap in the 31-car field with a lap of 12.131 seconds. After starting and finishing eighth in the first eight-lap WoO heat race, Hartmann rolled off fifth in the 12-lap Last Chance Showdown needing to finish in the top six to advance to the 40-lap main event.

Hartmann ran fifth in the opening laps of the Last Chance Showdown before Josh Schneiderman slipped past to shuffle him back to sixth. The third-year Sprint Car competitor and Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series rookie then ran smooth and consistent laps over the second half of the race to hold off Matt Vandevere and secure a starting berth in his first career World of Outlaws A main.

With the big picture of completing the remainder of his rookie 410 Sprint Car season in mind, Hartmann pulled off early in the 40-lap main event and was credited with a 22nd place finish in a race won by Sheldon Haudenschild.

“Saturday started pretty much the same as Friday, as we qualified decent with the track conditions very different from Friday,” Hartmann said. “In the heat race, the car felt good. I just have to work on getting better starts. However, we were able to hold our position on the slick track.

“In the LCS [Last Chance Showdown], I knew I had to get a good start and get up front,” he said. “The car was great on the bottom. I tried to run on the top, but felt I was faster on the bottom. Honestly, qualifying for an Outlaws A main felt like a dream, but it was well deserved for my team, especially, Hunter Annis, who worked his butt off all day to get the car back together. The support I have behind me is incredible. I can't thank everyone enough. In the A main, I decided to pull off and not wreck anymore equipment. I'd like to specially thank Alex Bliesner, Ozzie Wesener and R&H Enterprises for all of their help during the weekend.”

With the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series off during the upcoming weekend, the next event for Austin Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing Team with the IRA will be Thursday, June 30 for the Road America Challenge held in conjunction with the NASCAR Cup Series weekend at nearby Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis.

Pit gates open at 2 p.m. with spectator gates opening at 4:30 p.m., qualifying at 6:30 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m.

Wilson Rallies From 20th to Ninth at Atomic Speedway to Highlight Second Half of All Star Speedweek

Inside Line Promotions - PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (June 22, 2022) - Greg Wilson added another top-10 performance during the second half of the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions Ohio Sprint Speedweek to lead the way to a top-10 finish in the standings.

The highlight of the final half of the busy week featuring nine races in nine days was a charge from 20th to ninth a week ago Wednesday at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio.

"We were really good," the Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics sponsored Seeling Motorsports driver said. "We were able to race all over the track. We got by some guys on the top early in the race. It got to where you couldn't run a lap on the curb without making a mistake. When it gets like that the track gets more grooves than wide open around the curb. We really got rolling through the middle of the race track."

Wilson placed ninth in the B Main the following night at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio, before he advanced from 20th to 14th at Limaland Motorsports Park in Lima, Ohio, last Friday and from 22nd to 17th on Saturday at Portsmouth Raceway Park.

"I feel like the results the rest of the week didn't show in terms of top 10s that we were a decent race car," he said. "I felt at Lima and Portsmouth we could have ran inside the top 10 if the tracks didn't take rubber. We struggled at Waynesfield and Sharon and I'm not sure why. Everywhere else I felt we were a top 10.

"I felt like throughout Speedweek, like I said last week, we were floating right in the middle. We had a couple of off nights. We weren't able to overcome the pill draw at Waynesfield. I felt we were decent at Lima until it took rubber. We were fairly decent at Portsmouth until it took rubber. I don't even know if I'd made the feature there the couple of times I'd been there before. I think we're trending toward where we need to be."

Wilson's three top 10s placed him 10th in the Speedweek standings.

"I really felt we could have had a little more success than that, but overall for where our team is at it was respectable," he said. "You always want to do better with some podiums and a win, but in hindsight you look at there were 40 cars a night on average. Other than a couple of nights we had the ability to be a top-10 car. I haven't felt that way in a while."

The team plans on racing this Friday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, and Saturday at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio.

Starks Sweeps Grays Harbor Raceway Doubleheader and Records Top 10 During Dirt Cup Tune-Up at Skagit Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ALGER, Wash. (June 22, 2022) - Trey Starks is rolling into the famed Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup with momentum on his side.

Starks earned a pair of victories at Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash., last weekend before posting a sixth-place result on Monday during the Dirt Cup Tune-Up at Skagit Speedway.

"I'm really excited," he said. "I think this is shaping up to be one of the best Dirt Cups ever. We're in a good spot as a team right now and have enjoyed a lot of success in our limited races in 2022."

Weather changed the racing plan last weekend as Starks invaded Grays Harbor Raceway on Saturday evening for the opening round of a 360ci winged sprint car doubleheader. He won his first heat race from the pole position and his second heat race after starting seventh, which made him the high-points earner. Starks lined up fifth in the dash.

"On the start we got into third," he said. "We fell to fourth on the second lap, but by the fourth lap we got up to second. We were running down the leader, but ran out of laps. That started us on the outside of the front row in the main event.

"Seth (Bergman) put a slider on me going into turn one. I was able to cross him over and get under him going into turn three. I didn't really see anything after that. I just tried to keep it straight and my tires under me. We did a few things different than we normally do because I wasn't sure which way the track was going to go. We ended up being okay, but we were a little free and I didn't get through traffic as good as I wanted to. We had a restart with about 10 laps to go and I went into conservation-mode. Tires are a main concern these days. I didn't want to do too much damage to the tires. I was maybe a little more conservative the last 10 laps, but we had a good enough car to maintain the lead and win."

The victory also locked Starks into the main event on Sunday at Grays Harbor Raceway.

"With the tire situation and track conditions they didn't end up running the dash," he said. "We basically got one hot lap session in the middle of the day for the lock-in cars. I ended up drawing the No. 2 so that put us starting on the outside front row. It was a similar situation to the night before where we got the lead on the first lap and after that didn't really see anything. I tried to keep a good pace and again make sure I took care of my tires. We made a few changes to the setup from the night before and I felt a little better in traffic. The track was great. It was really wide and gave us a lot of room to race."

Starks led the distance for his sixth victory of the season.

The team ventured to Skagit Speedway on Monday for the Dirt Cup Tune-Up. Starks qualified ninth quickest, placed second in a heat race and advanced from 10th to sixth in the main event.

"We have very limited laps in a 410 this year," he said. "We've had one 410 race, which was at Grays Harbor. We don't have many 410 laps at Skagit the last few years either. The track was considerably different than we'd seen all season. They had a decent amount of water in it and it built a curb. We were pretty far off where we wanted to be in qualifying. Then we were playing catch up all night and not in our usual rhythm.

"We were just guessing for lack of a better word at the setup in the feature. We were close, but there was definitely some big things we would have done differently to help the car out. It shed some light on where we need to be on Thursday. In the grand scheme of things that's exactly what Monday night's race was for."

The Dirt Cup runs this Thursday through Saturday at Skagit Speedway.

Lonnie Wheatley, ODESSA, Mo. (June 22, 2022) – I-70 Motorsports Park fires back into action this weekend with two nights of 360-ci Sprint Car competition on Friday and Saturday.

It will mark the first visit for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour atop the newly-revamped I-70 Motorsports Park high-banked, 4/10-mile clay oval as they clash with the Missouri-based ASCS Warrior Region.

Friday’s card offers up $1,500-to-win with Saturday night’s championship finale awarding $5,000 to win.

ASCS rules are in place with the exception that aluminum blocks will not be allowed which is in alignment with Knoxville Raceway rules.

Last year’s All Star Circuit of Champions format will be in effect including group qualifying that sets heat race lineups with an invert of four. Heat winners along with the fastest qualifier to transfer will be eligible for the redraw with the balance of feature lineups determined by heat race finishes in order of qualifying time.

Any driver that doesn’t compete on Friday can start no better than 11th in Saturday’s finale.

Oklahoma City’s Wayne Johnson leads the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour troops into the weekend with a 57-point advantage over reigning series champion Blake Hahn as Columbia’s Garet Williamson and rookie contenders Jason Martin and Brandon Anderson round out the current top five.

Others among the current top ten in series points include past series champion Tim Crawley, Matt Covington and the rookie trio of Landon Crawley, Landon Britt and Kyler Johnson.

Marshall’s Miles Paulus holds the current edge in ASCS Warrior Region points.

The event will be show-up points only for both series.

Friday will be a Sprint Cars only extravaganza while the Show Me Vintage Cars will join in on Saturday’s action.

Gates open at 5:00 p.m. each night with racing going green at 8:00 p.m.

Buswell Joins RPM Race Products Team

As the saying goes, experience counts for everything. And to say Kim ‘Buzzy’ Buswell is experienced when it comes to motorsport would be quite the understatement, so it’s with great excitement, following the growth and development of RPM Race Products that they announce Buzzy as their General Manager.

RPM Race Products owner, Rick Musarra, is pleased to have Buswell join the Perth, Western Australia-based business.

“When someone of Buzzy’s calibre is looking for a new opportunity, you don’t pass it up, so when it was announced that he had left the Monte Motorsport team, I made an approach to Buzzy and it all progressed from there,” Musarra explained.

“I’m really looking forward to the future of the RPM Race Products business with Buzzy in the position as our general manager. He brings a lot of experience and that is no doubt going to complement our business and help take it to the next level”.

“Although Buzzy has only been in the position as general manager for only a month or so now, we already have a number of exciting plans ahead that is no doubt going to benefit all of our customers.”

After having spent over 30 years in the Sprintcar crew chief game and most recently with James McFadden and the Monte Motorsport team, Buzzy called time on his full-time role as a crew chief, and he is looking forward to the new opportunity with RPM Race Products.

“Earlier this year, I made the difficult decision to step away from being a crew chief, and after the announcement was made, I was approached by Rick about the possibility of joining RPM Race Products as their General Manager,” he said.

“One of the main reasons behind my decision to step away from being on the road with a Sprintcar team was that I didn’t see myself doing it for another 10 or so years, so to move into the role as general manager with RPM Race Products is the perfect fit, as it keeps me still heavily involved within the motorsport industry.”

Having worked with a range of talented drivers and major teams over the years and claimed every blue-ribbon Sprintcar event in the country multiple times, Buzzy is aiming to bring all that experience with him into his RPM Race Products General Manager role.

“I have built up a lot of experience and made a lot of contacts in speedway throughout the world over the years, and this is no doubt going to benefit my position with RPM Race Products,” he enthused.

“From the latest and new products to a range of new services, my main goal is to turn RPM Race Products the one-stop shop for everything speedway – no matter what class you run, we can help.

“One of the best things I’m looking forward with RPM Race Products is being able to work closely with customers and share my experience with them that will hopefully help them both on and off the race track.”

RPM Race Products specialises in the highest quality speedway parts and accessories for all levels of open wheel and sedan classes.

Rookie driver Dalton Rombough sits third, followed by Jonathan Preston, with Dave Axton completing the top five.

Pirtek Renegades

Ogilvie, MN, June 18, 2022

The Pirtek Renegades joined forces with the Northern Renegades for a sprint car invasion of Ogilvie Raceway on Saturday. 24 winged teams signed in to attack the central Minnesota speedplant, joining 17 traditional teams for a total of 41 Renegade sprint cars clogging the Ogilvie Raceway pits. Celebrity guest official TJ Inderieden joined the UMSS team for the evening to help the series support its 2022 drive to “Race for a Cause” in support of GiGi’s Playhouse, a nationwide network of Down Syndrome Achievement Centers.

The first heat race of the night went to Northern Renegade traditional sprint pilot Travis Case, while Nick DaRonco raced to win the second traditional qualifier. In winged action, Jeremy Schultz, Owen Carlson, and Todd Hanson won their respective heat races. In feature racing, DaRonco charged up from the eighth starting position to make it a clean sweep on the night in traditional sprint car competition, his second of the season. The winged feature winner came from even deeper in the field, as Mark Chevalier claimed his first sticker of the summer after starting on the inside of the seventh row.

The Pirtek Renegades are back at it this Saturday, June 25, when the traditional sprints return to their home track, Cedar Lake Speedway for a CLS Dash event. More information on upcoming events for the Pirtek Renegades, as well as links to other Renegades series, can be found at www.umsprints.com, or on facebook.

Late Race Move Sees DJ Johnson Win with Hunt Series at Marysville Raceway

(PETERSEN MEDIA-Marysville, CA)- During the Hunt Series’ lone visit to Marysville Raceway of the season this past Saturday night, 25 drivers made it a memorable appearance as DJ Johnson made a late pass to pick up his first series win of the season.

After acquiring the early lead on the race’s sixth lap from Trey Walters, Josh Young looked poised to pocket the win with the traveling tour, but behind him non-wing standout DJ Johnson was mounting a charge through the Top-Five.

As Young continued to lead up front, Johnson was working his way forward as he was able to get by the likes of Marcus Hardina and Nick Robfogel to work into second.

With Young Continuing to lead the way, Johnson made the highside work to his liking as he built up his momentum. Coming to the white flag, Johnson was able to use his momentum out of turn four to power ahead of Young as he would lead the final lap and win a thriller at Marysville Raceway.

Young would hang on to second, as Nick Robfogel took the final spot on the podium, B-Main winner Shane Hopkins charged to fourth and Marcus Hardina rounded out the Top-Five.

Johnson kicked his night off in fast fashion as he bested the 25 car field in time trials and earned the Dependable Crane Fast Time Award.

Benic Ent. Heat Race No. 1 went to Jake Morgan while Josh Young won Brown and Miller Heat Race No. 2, and Robfogel took top honors in King Racing Products Heat Race No. 3.

Charging from 16th to 4th, Shane Hopkins was the Santomauro Hard Charger, while Daniel Whitley was the Matt Streeter Racing Hard Luck Award recipeient.

JOE HUNT MAGNETOS WINGLESS SERIES- Joe Hunt Magnetos’ Roger Gleeson brought the traveling concept to non-wing sprint cars by popular demand in 2010.

After running under the leadership of Prentice Motorsports Group and Glad Enterprises from 2016-2018, 2019 saw Gleeson come back aboard. 2022 the series will be in action on 12 occasions as they visit five different Northern California venues.

 

 

Liggett Third at Merced Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Though he continues to run a limited schedule in 2022, Austin Liggett still has plenty of speed when he shows up. Saturday night in Merced, CA, Liggett battled for another win before settling for a third-place finish on the high banked bullring.

“I didn’t get timed in well at all, but the guys went to work, and we raced really well in our heat and the feature,” Austin Liggett said. “We had our chances, but my attempts to get the top spot just didn’t quite stick and work out.”

With 21 USAC Western States Midgets checked in at Merced Speedway, Liggett timed the Excel Environmental Services/Liggett Trucking/Tool Technology backed No. 83 entry in 12th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Having a great start in his heat race, Liggett was able to jump out front and race to the win on the slick racing surface, and that helped improve his starting position after his qualifying time.

On a track that continued to slick off, Liggett took the green flag from the seventh starting position and quickly began working his way forward. Slicing and dicing his way forward on the central CA bullring, Liggett moved into third as he set his sights on the lead duo of Michael Faccinto and Ryan Bernal.

Racing in traffic, the leaders worked the bottom and Liggett continue to make his money riding the Merced Speedway rim. As the Bernal and Faccinto got bottled up, Liggett had the momentum and powered his way to the lead only to see the caution fly and negate his efforts with just eight laps remaining.

The final restart saw Liggett make another big move attempt, but he was unable to make the pass stick as he settled into third when the checkered flag flew on the feature event.

“I really want to thank everyone that was in the pits working on our car because they gave me a car that was capable of winning,” Liggett added. “I also want to thank all of our marketing partners for their continued support.”

Austin Liggett Racing would like to thank Excel Environmental Services, Liggett Trucking, Tool Technology, Hurst Fabrications, Maxwell Industries, Shine Photography, and ZMAX Racing Oil for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-6, Wins-1, Top 5’s-3, Top 10’s-5

ON TAP: Liggett’s next event is TBD.

Nienhiser 2nd in Eldon, IA

PETERSEN MEDIA: Joining forces with Scott Bonar in 2022, Thursday night saw Paul Nienhiser hop in Bonar’s Midland Performance backed No. 50 machine and promptly pick up a second-place finish in Eldon, IA with the Sprint Invaders.

“Eldon, IA is a big half mile, and not really something I run on often so naturally I wasn’t sure how things would go when we pulled in,” Paul Nienhiser said. “Scott and I have been really good together over the years, so I figured we’d be okay and wed kind of exceeded my own expectations.”

After a good practice session, the Chapin, IL driver lined the Midland Performance/Kinney Racing Engines/Rockstar Wraps No. 50 up on the front row of his heat race.

Getting the lead in turns one and two, Nienhiser set sail and race his way to the win which then moved him into the Dash. Lining up fourth in the Dash, the front row got together at the drop of the green and luckily Nienhiser avoided contact before racing to a second-place finish.

The redraw based off the Dash finish then put Nienhiser in the third row for the feature event. Moving around the ½ mile speedway, Nienhiser laid down some strong laps as he began working his way forward.

Working the bottom in turns one and two and hammering the cushion in turns three and four, Nienhiser would race his way up to second by the time a late caution flew with just four laps left in the race.

Needing to nail his restart, a slight stumble with his engine let the leader get away from Nienhiser and he would be unable to build up enough momentum to make a run at the lead in the final circuits.

With the checkered flag displayed, Nienhiser capped the night off with a second-place finish.

“To have a shot at the win late in the race was by far more than I could have hoped for without actually getting the win,” Nienhiser said. “To run that well at an unfamiliar track is a huge confidence and momentum booster for us as he get back on some familiar soil this weekend.”

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Lubricants, Buffalo Wild Wings, Innovative Design, Mason Sound, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Signature Signs & Design, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, American Rental Center, Fierce Herbicide, Guse’s Pub & Eatery, Wessler Bros Agency, Willhite Mowing, T&K Tree Services, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Midland Performance, Simpson Race Products, Smith Titanium, and Premier Powder Coating for their continued support.

Nienhiser would also like to thank Midland Performance, Kinney Racing Engines, Rockstar Wraps, Heartland Trailer Manufacturing, Robert’s Tire Center, and Stronghurst Collision for their support of the No. 50 car.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-8, Wins-0, Top 5’s-3, Top 10’s-5

ON TAP: Nienhiser be return to action on Friday in Davenport, IA with the Sprint Invaders and in Burlington, IA on Saturday night for more Sprint Invaders action.

Phillips Earns Career-Best ASCS Sooner Region Result in 305 Sprint Car

Inside Line Promotions - SAPULPA, Okla. (June 21, 2022) - Elizabeth Phillips has recorded several strong moments throughout the start of the summer.

Phillips posted a top-10 result during her debut at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., on May 9 and she garnered valuable experience invading multiple tracks in the Midwest prior to a breakout moment last Friday.

Phillips advanced from eighth to sixth place in both a heat race and the main event during an ASCS Sooner Region race at The New Tulsa Speedway in Tulsa, Okla. It marked her first ASCS feature start.

"We just went to run with them to see if everything with our new engine was going to run before we traveled so that we wouldn't have issues," she said. "The team as a whole went into it not really looking for anything big out of the night. We drew the No. 71 out of 72 pills. We had to already start in the back of our heat race just to make sure everything was well so at least we got to keep our passing points.

"We gained two spots in the heat race and made the feature redraw. Making the redraw was a big deal to all of us because honestly I didn't think we'd be that high. From the start of the feature we had to keep our nose clean. We were able to pick off a couple of cars through the middle of the race. I think lapped traffic helped us a lot. We ran fifth until the last lap when we got passed in a mishap and finished sixth."

Despite racing her 305ci engine with the 360ci division, Phillips battled for her fifth top 10 of the season.

"I think it's going pretty good," she said. "As of right now we have momentum under us. We're adjusting to getting back to the main car since we've been in the backup car for so long. It was a confidence booster to contend for a top five throughout the ASCS race knowing I was underpowered and competing against drivers who have been doing this for a long time. I think we can take that confidence moving forward.

"I think we'll run a couple more races with ASCS with our 305. I think we still need more laps in the 305 because it is our first full season and we're new to everything, but it gave us the confidence that we can be competitive."

Phillips plans on competing this Friday at Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Okla., and Tri-State Speedway in Pocola, Okla., with the AmeriFlex OCRS IMCA Sprint Cars. She enters the weekend ranked ninth in the championship standings despite missing the most recent race.

Mallett Posts Fourth-Place Finish During Greg Hodnett Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (June 21, 2022) - Jordon Mallett earned a fourth-place result last Saturday during the 4 th annual Greg Hodnett Memorial hosted by Riverside International Speedway.

"Early on it looked like it'd be okay, but as the night progressed it was obvious it'd be a top-heavy track," he said. "I felt we had a really good race car, as good as anybody."

Mallett won a heat race from the pole position to kick off the action. That ranked him seventh in points to line up on the inside of the fourth row for the A Main.

"The heat race put us in a hole," he said. "In the passing points format if you start on the pole of a heat race you're basically penalized because you can only win. We did our job, but it still put us starting in the fourth row in the feature. That's hard to overcome when it's top dominant and you don't have a lot of opportunities to pass. That was disappointing to see we'd be buried a bit in the feature.

"We had a good car in the feature and we were able to pick up some cars to get ourselves in the top five. I was trying to get a podium, but it was too narrow and hard to pass so we settled for fourth."

Mallett's fourth-place finish was his fourth top five in a row.

Next up for the team is a USCS Series doubleheader this Friday and Saturday at Thunderhill Raceway in Somerton, Tenn.

QUICK RESULTS -

June 18 - Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. - Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 4 (7).

Dover Highlights The Border Battle With Top Five at Jackson and Hard Charger Award at Huset's

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 21, 2022) - Jack Dover produced one top five and two top 10s last weekend during The Border Battle.

However, it was a weekend of what-ifs for Dover and car owners Rick and Chris Bowers.

The Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association tripleheader began on Friday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., where Dover qualified second quickest in his group before advancing from fourth to win a heat race.

Dover nearly duplicated that success at the start of the main event as he hustled from fourth into the lead on the opening lap, but a caution erased the strong start. The move Dover used the first time wasn't available on the second attempt to start the race and Dover ran third for most of the feature.

"We were really good," he said. "We were right there with second most of the time and ran third most of the race. I just wasn't aggressive enough with lapped cars and that's what cost us a spot in the final laps so we finished fourth."

Dover returned to the track on Saturday when he timed in seventh quickest in his group. A runner-up result in a heat race lined him up on the inside of the sixth row in the main event.

"We went out later in time trials and that didn't help matters," he said. "In the heat race Brian Brown didn't pull away from us and he's won some races there so we knew we were decent. We just didn't get a very good start. Then in the feature we were up to seventh at one point. The last two laps for some reason I tried the middle in turns one and two and got passed by a couple of cars. I probably should have stuck with the line I was running and we'd have ended up seventh."

Dover's ninth-place result was his ninth top 10 of the season.

The weekend concluded on Sunday at Huset's Speedway, where Dover set quick time during qualifying for the first time in his career. Unfortunately, misfortune struck early in a heat race.

"In the heat race we moved up a position and I was running third," he said. "I went down into turn one and hit the bottom. I was sliding up out of turn two. As soon as I hit that cushion the rear axle snapped and it sent me flipping."

The team made repairs in time for Dover to start last - 27th - in the A Main.

"We started thrashing and got it done come feature-time," he said. "You don't know how the car will react or what it will do so it's kinda scary the first couple of laps. The car was working really good. I gained probably 60 percent of my positions on the bottom. We moved up top and got some cars. It was working good wherever we went. We went out there with tires that weren't cut and didn't have it set up the way we wanted so to make the progress we did and nearly get a top 10 was great."

Dover gained 16 positions to finish 11th. The performance earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

"I'm disappointed but happy at the same time," he said. "We had a really good weekend going and just ran into terrible luck. But overall we're happy with the speed we displayed each night and hopefully we can keep it up this week with the Outlaws."

Dover plans to return to Huset's Speedway for four straight World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races this week. It begins on Wednesday with the Ace Ready Mix/Myrl & Roy's presents the World of Outlaws. The Huset's High Bank Nationals runs Thursday through Saturday, culminating in a $100,000-to-win main event.

June 17 - Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn. - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 1 (4); Feature: 4 (4).

June 18 - Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn. - Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 2 (1); Feature: 9 (11).

Mark Thomas Ford has added $1,000 into the feature purses with each division seeing $250 added to the top four positions ($100, $75, $50, $25). Race time is 7 p.m.

The "410" Sprint Cars will highlight Saturday's program in a $3,100 to-win "Super Series" non-sanctioned show. Sharon has only been able to complete three "410" events in 2022 due to Mother Nature. Cap Henry won the opener over the 41-car field of All Star Sprints on April 30. A.J. Flick ended more than a three-year dry-spell by capturing the June 4 Western PA Speedweek event over the 33-car field. And most recently, Christopher Bell won for the third time in All Star competition at Sharon bagging the Ohio Speedweek show on June 14 over a strong 42-car field.

In the Ohio Speedweek show, Sye Lynch led the way for the locals with an impressive third place finish and picked up the $150 bonus from Mobile Bail Bonds. The third generation racer has three career Sharon wins, while his father Ed, Jr. still is the all-time winningest "410" driver in the history of Sharon with 50 triumphs.

Summit Racing Equipment will present the hard charger award on Saturday night to the "410" Sprint Car division. The driver that passes the most cars in the feature will receive a $100 Summit gift card. In the event of a tie, the tiebreaker will be the driver that finishes highest in the feature.

"410" Sprint Car Payoff (including Mark Thomas Ford bonuses): 1. $3,100 2. $1,375 3. $1,050 4. $775 5. $650 6. $550 7. $500 8. $450 9. $425 10. $400 11-13. $375 14-16. $350 17-20. $300 21-24. $250. Tow/Non-Qualifiers $100.

The Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars return for their fourth race of the month battling for the $700 top prize. The non-winged racers were finally able to hit the Hartford, Ohio on June 4 as Ryan Fraley of nearby Brookfield won his first career Sprint Car race over an all-time division record 24 cars. Three-time and defending Equipment Rentals Options Weekly Series Champion, Chad Ruhlman, picked up the $700 victory during Ohio Speedweek over a career best finish by Brian Hartzell. And last Saturday night saw Gale Ruth, Jr. finally win his first ever Sharon RUSH Sprint feature to become the third different winner in as many races.

The RUSH Sprints have competed eight times this year around the circuit heading into this weekend. Ruhlman and Ruth. each have a trio of victories, while teenager Blaze Myers has also been victorious in addition to Fraley. There have been 20 RUSH Sprint Car events completed all-time at Sharon with 11 different winners. Ruhlman, leads the way with eight victories. Ruhlman is in search of his fourth $5,000 Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Championship in five years as he currently leads the points.

The Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks were finally able to complete their first show of the year last Saturday night after several rain outs. Chris McGuire returned to prominence as he ran his famed high line around the fence to pass 32-time Sharon winner Steve D'Apolito for the victory. It was the seventh career win for the 2018 champion, who loves to make the trip down from Erie, Pa. to race. If 24 or more cars are present on Saturday, the Stocks will compete for $850 to-win thanks to the $100 winner bonus from Mark Thomas Ford.

The Whelen Econo Mods round out the four-division show on Saturday night for just their third race of the year. The Econo Mods joined the All Star Sprints at the April 30 opener, and it was Jeremy Double earning his 17th career win. Five weeks later, Will Thomas III won for the sixth time in eight starts over the past two years in the division. And while the Econo Mods haven't raced since, many of the drivers in the division competed in the Renegades of Dirt UMP Modified special last Saturday as Double was the highest Econo Mod finisher in third. If there are 24 or more cars, the Econo Mods will compete for $550 to-win on Saturday night thanks to the Mark Thomas Ford bonus.

There is no Sharon registration fee. One-way driver radios are mandatory; channel 454.000. AMB/MyLaps transponders are required; rentals available for $25.

Halligan Remains Hot; Records Two Podium Finishes Over the Weekend in PA
Busy PA Speedweek Schedule on Tap for Risser Motorsports Team

Port Royal, PA – June 21, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Jeff Halligan and the Risser Motorsports team decided to make the most of their final PA Speedweek preparation opportunities last weekend. The team elected to compete at both Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway. Both outings turned out to be very productive, collecting good notes and two podium finishes in the process.

June 17: Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

[21 cars, Heat 1st (1), A-main 3rd (1)]

A pill draw set the lineups for the three heat races for the 21 cars on hand at Williams Grove Speedway Friday night. Jeff Halligan landed the pole for the first 10-lap qualifying race, and he took full advantage. Halligan powered away from the field, keeping a firm grasp on the top spot throughout and winning by just over 4 seconds in the Risser Motorsports / TheTreeCenter.com / Victory Auto of Lewistown / EMM Sales & Service / Jake’s Golf Carts, No.45.

The 25-lap A-main lineup was determined by the track’s handicapping system, which worked in Halligan’s favor and provided him with the point position for the race.

Lucas Wolfe got out in front of Halligan on the opening lap and led the event through the first five circuits before Halligan wrestled the top spot away.

The Ephrata, PA driver settled in comfortably in front, running the high side of the speedway and was not seriously challenged for the next ten laps. As the race entered the final phase, Billy Dietrich found the rubber on the bottom and slipped by Halligan.

Moments later, Chase Dietz was able to get by both of them and went on to win, while Halligan settled for a 3rd place finish.

“I felt really good. The best I have felt all year here (at Williams Grove). We came here to get some final Speedweek prep. It probably sounds odd, but things we learn here can actually help us at Lincoln too.“, Halligan shared.

“Honestly, I should have won that race. I was really good up top while I was leading, so I wasn’t searching for a better line, but the low groove took rubber, and I didn’t move down quick enough.“

June 18: Open Wheel Madness II / Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

[25 cars, Heat 1st (2), A-main 3rd (6)]

Saturday night’s $5,000 to win 410 sprint car race at Port Royal Speedway drew a field of 25 teams.

Jeff Halligan started heat number two from outside the front row and immediately grabbed the lead from rookie Nick Sweigert. By the second trip around the Juniata County half-mile, Anthony Macri had slid his way into 2nd and began his pursuit of the top spot.

Halligan and Macri put on an entertaining battle, exchanging crossover moves on occasion during the 8-lap heat race. Halligan was up to the challenge and held off Macri for the win by 0.813 seconds.

From his 6th starting spot in the 25-lap A-main, Jeff Halligan knew he would have to ‘crack the whip’ from the drop of the green. Beside him was former track champion, Mike Wagner, and behind him in the 4th row were his two strongest competitors thus far during the 2022 season, Logan Wagner and Anthony Macri.

Halligan got the start he needed, climbing into the 3rd position by lap two. By lap nine he had powered his way into the 2nd spot and set his sights on the No.55 of Mike Wagner.

Over the next ten laps, Macri and Logan Wagner entered the fray. An intense battle among the top three unfolded and Halligan held tough, still running 2nd to Macri when the caution lights flashed on with seven laps remaining.

On the ensuing restart, Logan Wagner slipped into 2nd when he went to the middle in turn one, just above Macri who was hugging the bottom rail and under Halligan who had taken the high line.

The three went all out the final five laps but crossed the finish line with no further position changes, giving Jeff Halligan his second 3rd place finish in as many nights.

“I was really good until that last caution. We just missed something and didn’t quite have what we needed in the closing laps.“, Halligan commented.

“One of our goals this season was to be consistent with two different cars, so a couple weeks ago we pulled out a second Panther Frameworx chassis. We’re getting it dialed in now, so I feel like we have accomplished that goal.“

Halligan has amassed some pretty solid stats so far this season, logging 12 top-10’s in 19 outings, including one victory thus far.

“We’ve been fast, consistent and near the front all year. We just have to keep knocking on the door. If we keep doing that, it’ll open once in a while.“, Halligan concluded.

Up Next

Currently, Halligan and the Risser Motorsports team plan to race seven of the nine nights during PA Speedweek. Their schedule will include the two shows each at Williams Grove Speedway, Lincoln Speedway, and Port Royal Speedway, in addition to the Tuesday night event at Grandview Speedway.

Engine woes spoil promising night for Alex Pokorski at Plymouth Dirt Track

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 21, 2022 – What was shaping up to be the best outing of the season for Plymouth Dirt Track Racing and Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car driver Alex Pokorski of West Bend, Wis. quickly turned to disappointment when engine issues struck his Akright Auto Racing Team No. 4 car to cut his night short at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, June 18.

Pokorski’s night got off to a strong start as he ripped off the second fastest qualifying lap in the 26-car PDTR 360 Sprint Car field with a lap of 12.435 seconds.

After rolling off third in the third PDTR 360 Sprint Car heat race, Pokorski held down the third spot throughout the 10-lap event on the hammer-down, lightning-fast third-mile clay oval track surface to earn a transfer spot to the 25-lap A main.

The third-year 360 Sprint Car competitor started a 2022 season-best eighth in the PDTR 360 Sprint main event. As track conditions rapidly changed from fast and tacky to dry and slick in the opening laps of the A main, Pokorski was running eighth when the first caution flag of the race appeared on lap 6 for the stalled car of Preston Ruh.

On the restart, Pokorski bolted past Tyler Davis and Lance Fassbender to take over sixth in the running order. Pokorski was closing in on the top five when his car suddenly lost power and rolled to a stop in turn three on lap 8 with an ailing engine.

The engine issues proved to be terminal as Pokorski was credited with a 22nd place finish in a race won by Travis Arenz.

“We had just put this motor in prior to Saturday's show,” Pokorski said. “The car felt really good for the whole night and was very fast until the point when the motor blew up. It was encouraging to have a strong showing in qualifying, the heat race and to be running well in the feature. There were no warning signs before it blew. It’s just an unfortunate break. Sometimes these things happen in racing.”

With the PDTR and MSA 360 Sprint Cars idle on Saturday, June 25, Alex Pokorski and the Akright Auto Racing Team will return to action on Thursday, June 30 with the Plymouth Dirt Track Racing and MSA 360 Sprint Cars running in support of the Road America Challenge Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series event in held conjunction with the NASCAR Cup Series weekend at Road America in nearby Elkhart Lake, Wis.

Pit gates open at 2 p.m. with spectator gates opening at 4:30 p.m., qualifying at 6:30 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m.

“I am very lucky to have a dedicated car owner in Spyder Akright and to have all the supportive people around to help us change motors and work on the car,” Pokorski said. “Even fellow competitor, Dylan Winkel, stopped by to help us take a motor out Sunday morning, which was very kind of him. It’s really cool to have help from guys you compete with on a week-to-week basis. Our plan is to put in a spare motor and be back out for the next show on Thursday, June 30.”

Sponsors and supporters for Alex Pokorski and the 2022 Akright Auto Racing Team include Akright Auto, Petersen Septic Systems, Goeden Auto Body, Novak's Service Center, Wisconsin Bank and Trust, RC Custom Design and Pedal Down Promotions.

Australian Sprint Car All Stars

Wearing our heart on our sleeve
360s have been part of the Australian sprintcar history for a many years, starting as a a
fledgling new division back in the early to mid 90’s to what it is today, a strong and popular
class. With the numbers growing so quickly the first 360 Austtralian Title was introduced in
2004. Run and won at Timmis Speedway, Mildura by Stephen Bell. Accross 4 states 18 more
Aussie Titles have been held with – Jamie Cobby, Ryan Jones, Allan Barlee, Tony Moule,
Chad Ely, Kayden Manders – just to name a few proud winners. All of these drivers loyal 360
racers. State Titles have been run and won, too many to mention. Dedicated 360 Series
have been introduced in 2 states and multipule Series Champions crowned. The fact is 360s
have been competing in Australia for longer than 410s.
The class has had more rule changes than it would have cared for over the years, all
supposidely for the betterment of the division but most drivers would disagree with this but
the loyalty and dedication of these racers has made them stand strong and still continue to
build.
So now we move into another era and another insult for these teams. A couple of years ago
the SCCA introduced another engine specification into their rule book and now finally
engine rules have now been completed for these. Conversation was had as what to call this
new class off engines that had been slotted in under the 360 umbrella in the SCCA Rule
Book. The powers to be arrived with the name’ Pro Sprint’s. But whilst doing this in there
wisdom they have decided to rebrand 360s also – Pro Sprints. Our first question would be
why? Why do 360s have to undergo a name change? Why would the introduction of
another engine specification mean 360s have to lose their identity? Why change the name
of a known section that has been successfully running for years? Why change the name of a
proven class to incorporate a new division?
One might ask where is the SCCAs support or loyalty to a division that has been racing for
almost 30 years. Where is the support of the hundreds and hundreds of competitors that
join them each year? Where is the respect for the past 360 Australian Champions and where
is the respect for our history?
So yes, we as the Australian 360 All Star Series wear our heart on our sleeves? We are
disappointed and question why?

Red Hot Ryan Timms Enters 2022 Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge Pres. by Country Builders and The Rayce Rudeen Foundation

(Tylan Porath)

(PETERSEN MEDIA)- Sweeping ‘The Border Battle’ at Jackson Motorplex and Huset’s Speedway over this past weekend, Ryan Timms is looking for another big pay day, and the coveted Championship Belt trophy, as the standout 15-year-old announced his intentions of competing in August’s Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge Pres. by Country Builders and The Rayce Rudeen Foundation.

“We are thrilled to have a young talent like Ryan Timms come take part in the 2022 Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge Pres. by Country Builders and The Rayce Rudeen Foundation,” FRC Ent.’s Terry McCarl said. “With his age, Timms is limited where he can run the 410ci, but he has been impressive nonetheless, and we are excited to see what he can do against what is typically a really tough field of cars.”

Having a breakout season in 2021, Timms has leveled up in 2022 as he has made a name for himself on the Winged 410ci scene in 2022. This past weekend, Timms won a trio of 410ci events as he swept two nights at Jackson Motorplex and backed it up by winning at Huset’s Speedway.

“2022 has been a pretty great season for our team so far, and I am looking forward to getting into some big races this Summer,” Ryan Timms said. “My guys have been working really hard and I am eager to see how we stack up against some of the best at the Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge pres. by Country Builders and The Rayce Rudeen Foundation before we get to finally run some World of Outlaws races.”

Since moving to Sprint Cars fulltime in 2021, Timms has picked up a total of 10 410ci win to go along with 11 360ci wins.

Coming to see Timm’s and the rest of the field that is expected to be on hand compliments a great trip to Iowa in Mid-August with the Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge Pres. by Country Builders and The Rayce Rudeen Foundation taking place just a mere 26 miles from the Knoxville Raceway.

The ever-popular infield “Party Zone” will again be in full force, which makes this event such a fan favorite. Fans get awfully creative in what they bring into the infield with the only stipulations are no vehicle can be over eight feet tall, and no scaffolding is allowed to be constructed, as there is also a packed house in the main grandstands there to spectate.

Late Summer in the Midwest can bring quick rainstorms through the area, and in the past that has allowed the Party Zone to improvise and turn the infield into a mud wrestling tournament during the delay with great popularity. During the 2021 event, Cornhole Tournaments became extremely lucrative as one group built their own event up to offer $2000 to the winner.

While the normal Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge Pres. by Country Builders and The Rayce Rudeen Foundation rages on, and race does break out, and this year’s event will offer a cool $21,000-to-win and $800-to-start for the Sage Fruit 410ci division, a $1000-to-win King of the Hill Match Race presented by DeBerg Concrete, and a $1000-to-win SeaFoam IMCA 305ci feature event.

As details continue to finalize for 2022’s rendition of the FRC a look back at the 2021 event, which was won by NASCAR Champion Kyle Larson, who is still the only driver to win the Front Row Challenge as well as the non-wing Ultimate Challenge.

2021 saw Willwood Brakes offer $1200 in product to the Hard Luck driver, as the Jack Housby Hard Charger took home $500 in cash and a KSE Power Steering Pump.

Famed Hoseheads.com website owner, Alan Holland added a PA Posse Bonus to the race as the highest finishing PA Posse Member took $500 in cash back to the Keystone State.

Always with international flavor at the FRC and Southern Iowa Sprintweek, Premier Speedway in Warnambool, VIC, AU offered two Right Rear Tires to the highest finishing Australian native.

Other bonuses included $500 from SeaFoam Motor Treatment to the Fast Time Qualifier, while Heat Race Winners took home $1200in cash and other prizes courtesy of the Rayce Rudeen Foundation, HRP, and Brown and Miller.

During last year’s event, a total of 7 Hoosier Tires, $2000 to HRP, $1200 to Wilwood, $1000 to Brown and Miller, $400 to All Star Performance, two sets of Schoenfeld Headers, and a KSE Power Steering Pump was all handed out between the 410ci and 305ci field thanks in part to a ton of great marketing partners.

Our fans in the stands and our party goers were also equally rewarded as SeaFoam threw out Football’s with driver names on them. If you’re football carried the name of the winning driver, you walked out with $250, the second-place finisher equaled $150, and the third-place finishes equated to $100.

The ever-popular free hand out items were also in abundance at the 2021 FRC as over 2000 items were passed out including, hats, shirts, koozies, key chains, footballs, and FRC Beads.

PERRIS HOSTS BUBBY JONES/RAY SCHEETZ MEMORIAL THIS SATURDAY

(Perris, CA, June 20, 2022) Perris Auto Speedway will pay homage to a pair of legends who were very instrumental in the design and building of the famous Riverside County half-mile clay Oval when it hosts the inaugural Bubby Jones/Ray Scheetz Memorial this Saturday night, June 25. Saturday’s exciting racing program will feature the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds, and The PAS Senior and Young Gun Sprints. Spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with racing at 7:00.

Agajanian on the mic., trophy girl, Bubby Jones, Ray Scheetz, and current Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian. Scott Daloisio photo.

Saturday’s race will honor Bubby Jones, who passed away on January 18, 2020, and Ray Scheetz, who passed on October 8, 2013. A member of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame, Jones moved to California to drive the Kazarian family sprint car in the original CRA series in 1980. He was teamed up with crew chief Scheetz. The duo immediately bonded and the team quickly became one of the most recognized and successful sprint car operations in the nation. Together they won the CRA championship in 1983 and 1984 and they won 64 main events from 1980 through 1985.

In addition to Jones driving the Kazarian’s car and Scheetz being the crew chief on it, they also held down jobs in the Kazarian’s family business. In 1996 they became instrumental in the design and building of Perris Auto Speedway. When construction of the track was completed in March of that year, they stayed on and worked years at the track and helped turn it into one of today’s most popular and well-run dirt tracks in the world.

“It is only appropriate that we honor Bubby Jones and Ray Scheetz on the same night,” promoter Don Kazarian said. “The first thing people think about when they see photos of the Gas Chem Sprint Car is Bubby Jones. And when they think of Bubby the next thing that crosses their minds is Ray Scheetz. They were a dynamic team that worked so well together at the racetrack. They won two championships together and over 60 main events. They also worked at our family business. When Perris Auto Speedway opened, they were here from day one helping design, and build the track. When the construction was done, they took positions here as well. They worked just as hard at this racetrack as they did at winning races. We certainly miss them every single day.”

Before venturing to settle in the west, Jones was one of the “Original Outlaws” and raced around the country searching for the highest paying sprint car races. He won from coast to coast and everywhere in between. While he was well known in the sprint car ranks, he could also get the job done in the dirt champ cars (now known as silver crown) and midgets. In 1976, he won the nation’s two most prestigious midget races, the “Hut Hundred” at Terre Haute and the “Turkey Night Grand Prix” at Ascot.

As well as his prowess in sprint cars, dirt champ cars, and midgets, Jones raced in the 1977 Indianapolis 500. It took a last-second effort on bump day to break into the field, but he did so in a car owned by Texan Bobby Hillin with a speed of 184.938 mph. That put him 33rd on the starting grid with the slowest qualifying speed to make the race. However, once the race began, “Ol’ Bub” began flying towards the front. He made it all the way from 33rd up to ninth before his engine expired on the 78th lap.

In addition to working with Jones, Scheetz was well known as a top mechanic and crew chief in all forms of open-wheel racing. At the conclusion of World War II, his dad began preparing a track roadster for competition and young Ray began wrenching it. His work eventually caught the attention of John Pouelsen. In 1963 Pouelsen brought Scheetz to Indianapolis to be part of the Agajanian #98 crew that won the race with Parnelli Jones at the wheel. >From 1964 through 1966, he worked on the Bowes-Seal Fast car driven by A.J. Foyt on the USAC Champ Car circuit.

Scheetz returned to Southern California in 1968 and began a sterling career wrenching west coast cars. In addition to working on the Kazarian’s car, he worked on the famous Tamale Wagon and several other well-known cars amassing 155 wins and 10 series championships. In addition to Jones, he helped mold the careers of such stars as Ron Shuman, Billy Wilkerson, Rick Goudy, Nick Valenta, Howard Gardner, Bob Hogle, Colby Scroggins, Chuck Hulse, Ray Douglas, and others.

Adult tickets for Saturday’s Bubby Jones/Ray Scheetz Memorial are $30.00. Seniors 65 and over get in for $25.00. Kids 6-12 are $5.00 and children 5 and under are free. The fairgrounds charges $10.00 for parking.

TKS Motorsports and Tasker Phillips secure first top-ten of 2022 season

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MITCHELLVILLE, Iowa (June 20, 2022) - The decision to venture north to the state-of-the-art Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minnesota, proved to be well worth the time and miles for Mitchellville, Iowa’s TKS Motorsports and newly hired gun Tasker Phillips, as the team went on to record their first top-ten score of the season, doing so during opening night of the Border Battle on Friday, June 17.

Phillips, who made his TKS Motorsports debut one weekend prior in Knoxville Raceway’s Brownells Big Guns Bash featuring the World of Outlaws, finished eighth in his top-ten appearance at Jackson, maintaining his place amongst the NOSA frontrunners after starting fifth on the evening grid.

Despite attempts to maintain momentum the following evening, round two of Jackson’s Border Battle did not go as planned for Phillips, forced to retire after an incident on the opening lap.

“It feels good to finally get that first top-ten of the season. The year hasn’t been too kind to us, but we keep digging and that’s all anyone can do,” Troy Renfro, TKS Motorsports team owner, said. “I can’t say enough about this team. We’ve had just about anything and everything thrown at us this year, but we keep our heads up and keep moving forward. Big things are ahead for this team…we just have to break through and get there.”

ON DECK: TKS Motorsports and Tasker Phillips will continue their 2022 campaign with an off weekend before returning to weekly competition at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, July 2.

Bayston and CJB Motorsports with back-to-back top-fives at Beaver Dam; Huset’s Speedway next

2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Seventh | 3702 points [178 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

CARLISLE, Pa. (June 20, 2022) - It was an impressive two-day campaign for Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports, not only recording a pair of top-five outcomes in Beaver Dam Raceway’s Jim “JB” Boyd Memorial on June 17-18, but leading laps in the process, ultimately cashing in for a pair of fourth-place finishes which bumped his season’s top-five total to ten.

After finishing fourth from fourth on Friday, forced to scoot by Shark Racing’s Logan Schuchart to secure his position, Bayston, driver of the CJB Motorsports, Signing Day Sports, Bubbly Brands, JRC Transportation, Nyce Crete and Landis, Ecynbro Trucking, C&S Lawn and Landscape, Kistler Engines, The Dunn Group, Highlands’ Power Sports, High Performance Lubricants, FK Rod Ends, Allstar Performance, No. 5 sprint car, would go on to put together an even more exciting display on Saturday, earning the feature pole by way of dash finish before leading the first 12 circuits. Although in command for over a quarter of the program, Bayston would ultimately slip back, fading to ninth at one point in the 41-lapper.

Despite the setback, Bayston recovered, digging in and eventually reversing the pattern before utilizing a green/white/checkered restart to make up most of his ground.

“Overall, I am really pleased with our results this weekend,” Spencer Bayston said, a 2022 World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year candidate and one-time winner this season. “We have a lot of really important races coming up during these next couple of months and our consistency has me looking forward to all of them. Two top-fives is something to be very happy about, however, I still feel I have so much more to learn.

“With starting on the pole Saturday, I was really looking to get that second win of the year, but a couple of mistakes kept us from that,” Bayston continued. “In order to win these races perfection is a must and it's something we strive for every night. My guys have done an awesome job all year long and I am learning so much this year. We are excited to see what the future holds.”

ON DECK:
Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports will continue their 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with four nights of competition at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, on Wednesday through Saturday, June 22-25, all of which headlined with the High Bank Nationals that technically begins Thursday, June 23, with a $15,000-to-win preliminary. High Bank Nationals action will continue with a $20,000-to-win preliminary on Friday, June 24, followed by the $100,000-to-win finale on Saturday, June 25. Wednesday’s $10,000-to-win event is a rescheduled program from Sunday, June 5.

Amantea Pleased With Performance Throughout USAC Eastern Storm

Inside Line Promotions - BLOOMSBURG, Pa. (June 20, 2022) - Joey Amantea produced three top 15s during a successful debut with the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars last week.

Amantea finished 11th at Bridgeport Motorsports Park on Wednesday, 19th at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, 15 th at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday and 13th at Bloomsburg Fairgrounds on Sunday during USAC Eastern Storm races.

"I thought it was very successful for us," he said. "I wasn't expecting what it was. Every night I learned more and more about how hard I could push it."

Amantea kicked off the busy week last Wednesday at Bridgeport Motorsports Park in Swedesboro, N.J., where he qualified 20th quickest, placed seventh in a heat race and hustled from 19th to 11 th in the A Main. The eight positions gained marked the third-most cars passed.

"We ended up missing hot laps because I had a RACEiver problem so our first time in a 410 was qualifying," he said. "In the heat race I figured it out a little better. We were fast in the feature. I threw some slide jobs with guys like (Brady) Bacon. We needed one more spot for a top 10, but I feel like next year during Eastern Storm we'll be competing in the top 10."

Amantea gained a trio of positions to finished 19th on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. His best qualifying performance of the week was Saturday at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa., where he timed in 14th quickest before ending the night with a 15th-place result in the feature.

"In hot laps I decided to run the car as hard as I could and it paid off in qualifying," he said. "I think I was up to 13th in the feature and then lost a couple of spots with two laps to go. I should have started running the middle a little more and was hugging the bottom."

The weekend concluded on Sunday when Amantea gained two positions to finish 13th at Bloomsburg Fairgrounds.

"At Bloomsburg it was about survival," he said. "I felt faster than Justin Grant in the heat race and every time I'd catch him I couldn't see him.

"I'm just grateful and thankful for the opportunity to race all week. To move forward and pass cars made me happy. I got a lot of experience with the 410, which will help change my driving in the 360. The best thing I learned is how to throttle it into the corner instead of using the brake and turning. I think getting back in a slower car and a little heavier car I'll be able to drive it in harder."

Amantea plans on racing a micro sprint this Wednesday at Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa.

Early Tumble Ends Ryan Robinson’s Night at Petaluma Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night at Petaluma Speedway, an early tumble ended Ryan Robinson’s night early as he was battling for position with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

“Unfortunately, I got up in the rough stuff trying to make some headway in the feature event, and it resulted in getting us upside-down and it ended our night,” Robinson said. “I hate it for Todd Weiher and the guys because we tore up a lot of equipment.”

With a light count on hand for the series’ first trip of the year to the Bay Area speed plant, Robinson got his night started by timing the Maki Farms Inc./LP Holdings/Roseville Precision Inc. backed No. 14w entry in fourth fastest in his qualifying group.

Lining up int eh second row of his heat race, Robinson would get off to a nice start as he moved into the third position when the green flag was displayed. Hanging on to third when the checkered flag flew, Robinson went on to line the Weiher Racing entry up 10th for the 35-lap feature event.

With the track offering a little bit of everything on Saturday night, a slick bottom and choppy middle to top saw Robinson opt to run above the rest as he began his pursuit to the front.

After a couple of early stoppages, Robinson got a great start on a lap six restart but as he entered turns one and two, Robinson would get up on two wheels as he entered in the rough surface, he would lose it as his machine flipped violently as he got into the fence.

Able to escape from the wreckage unscathed, Robinson’s night would come to a disappointing end for the second week in-a-row.

“We had another good car, but I just didn’t have enough wheel spin to be up in the junk on that restart and it resulted in us getting upside down,” Robinson said. “We had just passed a car and had another run going but it didn’t work out.”

Weiher Racing would like to thank Mako Farms Inc., LP Holdings, Roseville Precision Inc., Escalon Body and Frame, Seth’s Racing Engines, Pettibone Builders, Sipes CC, The Holman Family, Square Tires, Papa Chuck, Dave Harvey Trucking, and Morrison Concrete for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-9, Wins-1, Top 5’s-1, Top 10’s-6

ON TAP: While Robinson heads to take part in this week’s Dirt Cup, the next event for the Weiher Racing team is TBD at this time.

Hagar Captures ASCS National Tour Win and Greg Hodnett Memorial Triumph During Special Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (June 20, 2022) - Derek Hagar enjoyed one of the most fruitful weekends in his sprint car career last weekend.

Hagar captured his seventh career Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour triumph on Friday at Texarkana 67 Speedway before he scored his first-ever Greg Hodnett Memorial triumph on Saturday at Riverside International Speedway.

"That was probably the biggest weekend I've had since I won the Air Capital Shootout in Kansas in 2016," he said. "It was real big for our team. To go out and win a national race and be a spoiler for them and then be able to do the same thing the next night at a meaningful event honoring Greg Hodnett was pretty special."

Hagar was stout throughout his debut at Texarkana 67 Speedway, where he qualified second quickest in his group and advanced from third to second place in a heat race. That put him on the inside of the second row in the A Main at the dirt oval in Texarkana, Ark.

"We went out there and practiced good and qualified decent for our heat race," he said. "That gave us some good passing points. We were third in points overall and Garet Williamson drew the zero so there was no feature inversion.

"I was able to get a good start. Matt Covington drove around Williamson on the start and we had a caution. I was anticipating Williamson to go to the top on the next attempt at the start. When he did it killed his momentum and I was able to get by him. I went to the top the next lap and then I noticed lapped traffic was getting faster than I was. Before I could move down Williamson drove by me into turn three. He tried to get by a lapped car and I stuck the bottom in turn one and was able to get back by him. Luckily we had a couple of cautions to where I had clean track and didn't have to worry."

Hagar's win was his second of the season with the series.

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Riverside International Speedway, which hosted the 4th annual Greg Hodnett Memorial.

"We had a terrible pill draw that put me dead last in the final heat race of the night," he said. "We were able to get up through there pretty quick, but there was a caution on the first lap and went from starting last to restarting third. We didn't get as good of a start the second time and ran third most of the heat race. I was able to get by Blake Jenkins in turns three and four on the last lap to run second, which lined us up on the front row of the feature.

"I got a good start to the main event and I slid the corner going into turn one on the initial green to carry my momentum. It was a top dominant track. It slicked off as the feature went on. There wasn't any middle or bottom. If you wanted to get by someone you had to do a slide job. Trying to thread the needle in traffic gave us a couple of close calls. Fortunately we led the distance to get the big win."

The victory was the eighth of the year for Hagar.

Next up for the team is an ASCS Mid-South Region race this Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. Hagar enters with a 147-point lead in the championship standings.

QUICK RESULTS -

June 17 - Texarkana 67 Speedway in Texarkana, Ark. - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 2 (3); Feature: 1 (3).

June 18 - Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. - Heat race: 2 (7); Feature: 1 (2).

Price Guides Sides Motorsports to Two Top 20s During Debut at Beaver Dam Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - BEAVER DAM, Wis. (June 20, 2022) - Robbie Price posted his second-best result with Sides Motorsports last Friday during the opening night of the Jim "JB" Boyd Memorial.

Price finished 17th in the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series main event while making his debut at Beaver Dam Raceway. He recorded a 20th-place result at the track on Saturday.

"I'd say it was a mediocre weekend," he said. "We definitely qualified better. I think we could have been a little better the first night, but we weren't too bad."

Price qualified 15th quickest. A fourth-place finish in a heat race locked him into the 15th starting position in the main event.

"In the A Main the track was locked down and wide open so there wasn't a ton of passing, but I felt comfortable," he said. "The second night we qualified better, but I got a bad start in the heat race and got slid by a couple of guys. I just never got any momentum going. We ran second in the B Main and then in the A Main I wasn't that great. I went a lap down and didn't want to be in the way so I pulled off."

Price timed in 11th quickest on Saturday. A seventh-place outing in a heat race was followed by a runner-up result in the Last Chance Showdown. The night ended with Price finishing where he started - 20 th - in the feature.

"I feel like we're getting better and better," he said. "That's all we can ask for is to try to get better every time we go out."

Price is preparing to make his debut at another track this weekend when Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., hosts four straight nights of racing. It begins on Wednesday with the Ace Ready Mix/Myrl & Roy's presents the World of Outlaws followed by the Huset's High Bank Nationals, which runs Thursday through Saturday.

"It'll probably help to race at the same track four nights in a row," he said. "From what I've heard Huset's is like some stuff at home. I'm excited to see if it's familiar."

Williamson Ties Career-Best ASCS National Tour Result With Second-Place Outing in Arkansas

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, La. (June 20, 2022) - Garet Williamson tied his career-best Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour result last Friday when he placed second at Texarkana 67 Speedway.

The Bryant Paver Motorsports driver set quick time in his group and advanced from fourth to second place in a heat race to garner the pole position for the main event during his debut at the track in Texarkana, Ark.

"We were really good all night on Friday," he said. "In the feature we hung with (Derek) Hagar all race. In traffic I barely got in front of him on the frontstretch. I figured if I could get in front of a lapped car and chopped his nose it would have won the race for us because that's how big of a factor lapped traffic was. They missed the bottom and Hagar snuck underneath them and got back by us. If they had hit the bottom I'd have come out of turn two with the lead."

Williamson officially led Lap 11 before dropping back to second the ensuing lap.

"All in all, it was a good night," he said. "It was a good points night and it was good to get a podium out of the way. Last year I think it took late in the season to run up front with the series."

Williamson was also in contention for a top five on Saturday at Boothill Speedway, where he timed in second quickest in his group and finished fourth in a heat race to line up 11th in the A Main.

"In the heat race I was running third and tried something and ended up getting passed," he said. "With the way the format is it buried us in the feature. Everybody was rolling the bottom. It won't win you races doing that when you're starting 13th so we committed to the top and we were making up ground. Coming to the white flag we were passing for fourth and got over the cushion and up into the wall. We had hurt the Jacob's Ladder early in the race. It was real technical up there. When I hit the wall that last time it really damaged our car and I limped it to the finish."

Williamson was credited with a 13th-place result.

He ranks third in the championship standings - only 35 points out of second place and 92 points behind the leader - entering a doubleheader this Friday and Saturday at I-70 Speedway in Odessa, Mo.

"Our big track program with the 360 has been really good," Williamson said. "Also, I think I'll be one of the only drivers with laps there recently so I think any time you can get some extra laps on people it'll help."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 17 - Texarkana 67 Speedway in Texarkana, Ark. - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 2 (4); Feature: 2 (1).

Gravel Garners Podium and Hard Charger Award During Doubleheader at Beaver Dam

Inside Line Promotions - BEAVER DAM, Wis. (June 20, 2022) - David Gravel posted a third-place result at Beaver Dam Raceway for the fourth straight season last Friday during the opening round of the Jim "JB" Boyd Memorial.

The Big Game Motorsports driver capped the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader by hustling from 13th to fifth on Saturday, earning the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

The two-race weekend began on Friday when Gravel qualified fifth quickest. A heat race win was followed by a runner-up result in the dash, which started Gravel on the outside of the front row in the A Main.

"We were able to qualify well and win the heat race and get a good draw for the dash," he said. "We set ourselves up well. The track was uncharacteristic compared to how it normally is. It was very wet and fast. We didn't get the jump on the second or third start like I did on the first one. I was third off turn two and that's where we finished."

Gravel's third-place result was his first podium since April 9.

The event concluded on Saturday. Gravel timed in 10th quickest and finished fifth in a heat race to line up on the inside of the seventh row in the main event.

"On Saturday we buried ourselves a little by missing it in qualifying," he said. "Then we had a bad heat race so we put something we were more accustomed to into the setup for the feature. We had a good car and kept battling and we ultimately ended fifth.

"I felt like we started out not very good the first three to five laps. From about Lap 6 or Lap 7 to Lap 12 the car was really good. There was a stage where the car got out of the track and so I grabbed some wing. Then the car was rolling pretty good and I felt we were closing in on those guys in front of us. Brad (Sweet) crashed and we moved to fourth. I got to (Logan) Schuchart's left rear on the last corner of the last lap. It took the air off my wing and we lost a spot. But to get a top five was good."

Gravel has a big week on tap with four straight nights of racing at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. The Ace Ready Mix/Myrl & Roy's presents the World of Outlaws is Wednesday before the Huset's High Bank Nationals, which is capped by a $100,000 show, runs Thursday through Saturday.

"This is Tod's biggest week of the year for the track," he said. "It's my birthday week. We had success there last year. There's a lot of exciting things this week. We're looking forward to going back there. Hopefully we can go there with the same speed we had last year and can get a couple of wins."

Austin O’Neal Races to Double-X Speedway Top-10

PETERSEN MEDIA: Making this business decision to cancel their plans last weekend with weather looming, Austin O’Neal and the Austin O’Neal Racing team were back in action on Sunday night at Double-X Speedway in Missouri where O’Neal picked up his second Top-10 of the season.

“We went into Sunday night with the mindset that we were going to experiment with our car and try a few things,” Austin O’Neal said. “When it was all said and done, I think we learned some things that we can file away and continue to build our notebook.”

Pullin the 13 for his heat race draw, O’Neal lined up in the second row of his heat race. When the green flag was displayed in heat race action, O’Neal slipped back to fourth as he battled hard to get back up to third.

Keeping third in his crosshairs, O’Neal close the gap at the halfway point of his heat but could not get back by as he settled for a fourth-place finish.

Making wholesale changes for the feature event, O’Neal took the green flag from the seventh starting position.

With the waiving of the green flag, the Kearney, MO native slipped back to 10th as he patiently waited for the track to come to him. As the race progressed, the track continued to slow down and move to the bottom groove and become extremely narrow.

Picking up a couple of positions, O’Neal worked into eighth as the track began to lay rubber. As the rubber went down, the bottom groove turned into a freight train and O’Neal went on to finish eighth and claim his second Top-10 finish of the season.

With Double-X now in the rearview mirror, O’Neal sets his sights on a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour doubleheader this weekend at I-70 Motorsports Park.

“My family has a lot of history at I-70, and I am really excited to make my first appearance at the track,” O’Neal added. “My grandpa started his career there, and my dad was very tough there on pavement in the late 90’s and early 2000’s and won the NASCAR Heartland Regional Championship. I am hoping I can become the third O’Neal to win at the track.”

Austin O’Neal Racing would like to thank Marmon/Keystone, Weld Racing, River Valley Ag, Kaw Valley Companies, RacinBoys, HMC Performance Coatings, Mel Hambelton Ford Racing, Champion Oil, Taffs Carpets, Rod End Supply, Clemons Home Team, Mettec Titanium, V&L Properties, Toby’s Coatings, NGK Spark Plugs, Maxim Racing, Capital Sign Co., Wesmar Racing Engines, and Schure Built Suspensions for their support.

Wilmot Raceway

Wilmot, Wis., Sunday, June 19, 2022)--Genoa City's Nick Simons kept the modified feature wins in the family scoring his second 20-lap main victory of the season to score a late race Father's Day Special Night victory Sunday, June 19 at Wilmot Raceway.
John Cole of McHenry, IL chalked up his second 15-lap Bandit 4-Cylinder Stock Car feature win of the season, also in a late race victory.
Keeping with the evening's theme, Tim Cox of Park City, IL became the third different 20-lap AutoMeter/Brewington Electric Wisconsin WingLESS Sprints 2022 feature winner at Wilmot, also taking the lead in the late going.
Pell Lake's Cody Potter was the lone run away winner on the night becoming the third different Street Stock 20-lap main winner this season at Wilmot.
Eagle's Steve Mueller appeared to be up to the task of five caution periods in the first half of the modified main. Each time N. Simons would choose a different groove for the restart, which got him alongside but not quite far enough to take the lead.
With five laps to go, Mueller hooked the inside berm coming out of turn four getting sideways. That was all N. Simons needed as he powered past into the lead and going onto the win with the feature coming to a halt on a yellow/checkered flag with a turn one tangle after N. Simons had gone over half a lap after taking the white flag. Mueller recovered for second. Milwaukee's David Wirth third. Milwaukee's Don Scheffler fourth. Jason Wirth of Elkhorn fifth.
"I don't know what happened to Steve(Mueller), who seemed to have the race covered," said Mike Simons Sr., Nick's Dad, in a unique post race interview as Nick dropped the car off in victory lane, then jumped into the water truck to do some track prep which he oversees all week along with his Father and Jim Kuenhold. "Mike III(Nick's brother, who had won the last two modified features) broke an A-frame which knocked him out on the opening lap accident. At least it's still in the family. Nick won on Mother's Day weekend and now again on Father's Day. That's pretty cool."
Salem's Ryan Johnson weathered a series of five cautions which slowed the pace of the 15-lap Bandit feature, each time staying in the lead. Cole, who started seventh in the 21-car field, gradually worked his way into contention. On the white flag lap, the two went side by side virtually the entire way around the 1/3-mile clay oval. Coming out of turn four for the checkered, Cole shot to the win by less than a car length over Johnson scoring his second feature win of the season. Pleasant Prairie's Scott Ellis Johnson was third. Mt. Pleasant's David McKellips fourth. Pleasant Prairie's Scott Carpenter fifth.
"It was great running with Ryan like that," said Cole. "It means a lot to win on Father's Day. I especially thank my wife Danielle for all she does for my racing."
Rusty Egan of Round Lake Heights, IL started from the pole of the WingLESS feature which was restarted after an opening lap red flag when Burlington's Mike Sullivan flipped end over end in turn one. This marked the second week in a row which Sullivan, who walked away, flipped, this time in his "backup car."
Egan rocketed out into the lead and appeared comfortably in front until a final red flew when Trevor's Jordan Paulsen flipped over a disabled car heading into turn one with 11 laps remaining. Paulsen walked away.
Cox worked into the front coming out of turn four with five laps to go, overtaking Egan who it turns out had a tire going low. At the finish it was Cox picking up his first feature win of the season. Jimmy Sivia of Winthrop Harbor, IL was a fast closing second. Zach Raidart of Gurnee, IL third. Kansasville's Ryan Marshall fourth. Nathan Crane of Waukegan, IL, who started 17th after winning the first of twin "B" mains, finished fifth. Egan ended up seventh.
"It's great to win on Father's Day, even though my Dad isn't with us any more," said Cox. "Mom is here and so is my family. I am dedicating this season to a dear friend of ours who passed away from cancer."
"We're working on something, so you might very well see me in two cars next week," said Cox, noting he may run the Wisconsin WingLESS car and also a car in the traveling USAC Non-Wing Sprint Car Invasion which is coming to Wilmot for the first time in over a decade on Saturday, June 25.
Early race crashes kept slowing the pace in the 20-lap street stock main and adjusting the line-up as some of the front starters were involved. Potter was in the right place at the right time and once the green stayed out, he shot to the front. Three cautions kept erasing his lead in the final half of the event, but each time Potter was up to it. At the finish it was Potter, Cody Erickson of Algonquin, IL second. Brandon Mertes of Antioch, IL third. Big Bend's Mark Baker fourth. Muskego's John Sidesky fifth.
"When you have yellows like that, it takes you out of your rhythm," said Potter, who is focusing this season on asphalt racing and brings out his 57 Chevelle Replica on night's off. "I just focused on hitting my marks. It worked and it's great to get a win."
Wilmot Raceway will host the USAC Non-Wing Sprint Car Invasion on Saturday, June 25 featuring the national traveling stars and cars coming to Wisconsin's original home of sprint car racing for the first time in over a decade. The AutoMeter/Brewington Electric Wisconsin WingLESS Sprints are on the program at their home track as well. Modifieds round out the evening's special event card.
Grandstands will open an hour earlier than normal at 4:00 p.m. with on track activity getting underway about 5:30 p.m. and racing to follow. Grandstand tickets are $30.00 for ages 12 and over, $5.00 for ages 7-11, with ages 6 & under admitted free. The Pits will open at 2:00 p.m. with pit passes being $35.00.

TAFOYA GETS FIRST FAST QUALIFYING TIME AND FINISHES 5TH IN VENTURA MAIN

(Chino, CA, June 17, 2022) Eddie Tafoya Jr. continued his progression in the tough 410 sprint car ranks when he set the fastest time in qualifying at the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series race at Jim Naylor’s Ventura Raceway last Saturday night. It was the first fast qualifying time in his career and he followed it up with a fifth-place finish in the main event.

The night started out on the right foot for Tafoya, the 2019 USAC/CRA and USAC Southwest Series “Rookie of the Year,” when he stopped the qualifying clocks in a time of 12.735. That was the fastest time of the 24 cars on hand and thus earned him his first-ever Woodland Auto Display Fast Time Award.

Quick time meant that Tafoya would start either sixth or seventh in the main event. If he finished in the top four in his heat, he would start sixth. If he placed fifth or worse, he would start seventh. Being fast qualifier also meant that the Chino Hills, California racer would start sixth in the first heat. Tafoya did not get a good start in the 10-lapper and ended up finishing fifth, putting him on the inside of the fourth row for the main.

If there was ever a night you would want to start seventh instead of sixth, this may have been it. The track was one lane around the bottom and those who ventured to the outside were doing so with a huge risk of being freight trained until they could get back in line.

Tafoya quickly realized the situation and kept it to the bottom. It paid off in almost immediate dividends as he raced by two cars who tried to go to the wide line before the third lap was completed. That put him into the fifth-place spot. Staying close to the first four cars, “Mr. Smooth” had a couple of attempts to advance his position when the fourth-place driver ventured off the inside line, but he would bring it back down before Tafoya could take full advantage.

In the end, with the track shrouded in fog, Tafoya finished with a smart, hard-earned fifth-place finish. He came into the night fourth in the series standings, but he was only one point ahead of the fifth-place driver. By the time he left with his team at the end of the races, he increased that advantage to 71-points. In addition, he closed to within 54-points of the third-place driver and 62-points of the driver in second.

Through the first 11 races of the 2022 season, Tafoya has finished in the top 10 eight times. He has four top-five finishes and two top threes. His season-best was a second-place result at Arizona’s Cocopah Speedway on January 29th.

After getting this weekend off, Tafoya will return to the sprint car wars when Perris Auto Speedway presents the inaugural Bubby Jones/Ray Scheetz Memorial on June 25th. That will be followed by back-to-back nights of racing in Central California at the Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford on July 8th and the Stone Chevrolet Buick GMC Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare on July 9th.

Tafoya and the #51T team would like to thank Specialty Fasteners, DRC Chassis, Ryder Racing Engines, Simpson Safety Products, Bell, Benic Enterprises, BR Motorsports, PSC Powder Coating, Magik Graphics, Gasper Transportation, Owen’s Insurance Services, and Weld Wheels for making the 2022 season possible.

If you or your company would like to be a part of the Specialty Fastener team’s 2022 season effort, please contact Eddie Tafoya Jr. via phone at (909) 393-3999 or by e-mail at teamtafoya@aol.com. He will be happy to talk to you and lay out the team’s 2022 plans.

Fans can follow Tafoya on Instagram @eddietafoya51. The same contact point can be used to purchase his great-looking shirts via mail.

CAREER 1ST HOVIS RUSH LATE MODEL WIN FOR PHILIP BUBECK AS HE BECOMES THE 6TH DIFFERENT WINNER IN 6 RACES AT PITTSBURGH

By Marcie Barlow

(June 16, 2022) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Pulaski, PA)...The temperatures are heating up and so is the Hovis Auto and Truck Supply RUSH Racing Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants action. Philip Bubeck scored his career first victory in RUSH Late Model action at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway, while Breyton Santee won his first of 2022; meanwhile, others like Bill Holmes, Jeremy Wonderling, Donnie Dotson, Jared Keeney and Brian Knowles added to their win totals. Veterans Dennis Lunger (Pro Mods) and Chad Ruhlman (Sprint Cars) also continued their winning ways in RUSH action.

Delaware International Speedway hosted a special Friday evening racing card that saw Joey Warren his second win of the season at the track in the 25-lap $1,000 to-win RUSH Late Model main event. Back on April 13 at the opener, Warren won his first career Flynn's Tire Touring Series event worth $3,000. Trevor Collins finished in second followed by Derek Magee, Matt Hill and Kerry King, Jr.

RUSH Late Model action at The Hill Speedway on Friday saw Jared Keeney win his second consecutive main event. Mike Epler was a season best second over Rich McNeal.

Keeney continued his winning weekend as he was also victorious at Skyline Raceway Saturday night. It was also Keeney's second straight Skyline win as he's now won his last four RUSH Late Model starts. Chris Fleming came home in second with followed by Alan Chapman, Todd Chapman and newcomer Kevin Fleming.

The RUSH Late Model action at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway has yet to see a repeat winner and that streak continued on Saturday night as Philip Bubeck scored his first career victory in the division after winning the "One to Remember" non-winners race last year on October 1 during the "Bill Hendren Memorial". Bubeck took the early lead, weathered a scare early in the event when his car appeared to lose power and a late race caution in route to the win. Bubeck, who started the season with four straight fourth place finishes, became the sixth different winner in as many races. National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Tim Shaffer came home in second as he continues to be close to his first career Late Model win. Michael Reft, Colby Beighey and Dave Goble completed the top five.

After missing the last two shows, Bill Holmes returned to Genesee Speedway and led every lap of the 25-lap RUSH Late Model main event Saturday night. It was Holmes' second win of the season at the Batavia, New York oval. A four-car battle for the second spot saw Dave DuBois fend off Jeremy Wonderling to come home in second while Jimmy Johnson edged our J.J. Mazur at the line for the fourth position.

Breyton Santee picked up his first win at Stateline Speedway Saturday evening . Santee took the lead from teammate Jonathan Stockdale on lap one, withstood pressure from veteran Randy Hall and weathered numerous cautions in the 20-lap main event. Matt Sipes, Jason Genco, and Khole Wanzer battled for the third position over the event. At the checkered it was 10th place starter David Parker who finished in third with Genco and Sipes completing the top five. A strong 24-car field was on hand for the two straight week.

Veteran Donnie Dotson tallied his second RUSH Late Model win of the season at Tyler County Speedway Saturday, but first since April 16. Dotson took command at the start and held off Kyle Thomas, Michael Duritsky, Jr., Brandon Weigle and AJ Spagnuolo for the win.

Brian Knowles visited victory lane for the fourth time this season in RUSH Late Model action at Woodhull Raceway. It was Brian's third straight win giving him and his brother Jason six straight wins at their home track! Steve LeBarron challenged Knowles for the top spot several times but settled for second.

They began their weekend on Friday evening at Raceway 7 for a Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series event. Jacob Wolfe led the first two circuits of the 20-lap main event before second-generation racer Ben Easler took command. Easler was pulling away from the field as Kole Holden slowly worked his way through the field after starting in sixth. By lap 14 Holden began to reel in the leader and came within a car length of Easler in the final three laps but could not take the top spot from him. Easler scored his season's first win with Holden, Justin Shea, Wolfe and Doug Rutana following.

On Saturday evening the RUSH Sportsman competitors stopped by Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. The rained out main event from May 21 was led to the green by Chelsie Kriegisch and Kole Holden. Holden won the battle to lead the first circuit with Shea, Kriegisch and Ayden Cipriano following. The top four remained the same through lap 11 when Holden retired with mechanical woes. Shea cruised to the win, his second of the season at the Imperial, PA oval, with Kriegisch a season best second. Third through fifth were Cipriano, Tony Tatgenhorst, and Jacob Jordan.

Garrett Krummert was the victor in the regularly scheduled RUSH Sportsman Modified main event. It was just Krummert's second start of the year a he's now two-for-two with his 23rd career win in the division. J.C. Boyer, Tatgenhorst, Cipriano and Kriegisch completed the top five.

The lone Hovis Auto and Truck Supply Sprint Car event this past weekend was held at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. Nolan Groves and Brian Hartzell led the field to the green, but it was fourth place starter Chad Ruhlman who took the lead on lap one and went on to score the win in the non-stop event for his first Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series victory of 2022, but all-time division leading 36th of his career. Youngster Blaze Meyers, Hartzell, Groves and Brian Cressley finished second through fifth respectively.

Veteran Dennis Lunger, Jr. continued his win streak in RUSH Pro Mod action at Stateline Speedway as he scored his third consecutive victory at the Busti, NY oval after taking the lead on the seventh circuit. Zain Harvey, Adam Ashcroft, Chad Carlson, and Tyler Sutton would round out the top five.

CHIARAMONTE MAKES THIRD MIDGET APPEARANCE SATURDAY AT MERCED

(El Cajon, CA June 16, 2022) For the third time in his young career, teenage racer Braden Chiaramonte will take on the best midget drivers west of the Mississippi in a USAC Western Midget Series race at the Merced Speedway this Saturday night, June 18th. The race will be the first time the talented driver has appeared on the racy 3/8 of a mile clay oval in California’s Central Valley.

For this week’s race at Merced, Chiaramonte, 15, will once again be driving the Matt Streeter 14JR. The first time the El Cajon, California teen showed up to drive the car at the Bakersfield Speedway on April 16th, those unfamiliar with him thought he was just another rookie driver. That started to change when he qualified ninth fastest in the 21-car field. Minutes later on the first lap of his heat race, he showed everyone that they needed to sit up and pay attention. He went from his fourth-place starting spot into the lead on the first lap. He then led the first six laps before the 2021 series champion finally chased him down and took the top spot. The impressive teen never gave up and ended up finishing second.

For the main that night, Chiaramonte started ninth and finished 10th in the 21-car field that was mostly comprised of veterans. His last name gave long-time race watchers fits as they tried to tell their friends about him the next day.

Five weeks after his initial foray in Streeter’s car, the duo teamed up again at the Ventura Raceway on May 24th. Chiaramonte’s appearance in that race drew a lot of attention from those wondering if his initial outing was a fluke. He put those notions to rest in qualifying. He turned in a lap at 12.486. That was third fastest in the 24-car field in only his second-ever appearance in a midget.

After a 6th place finish in his heat race he began the 30-lap main event inside the 5th row in 9th. Once again competing against seasoned veterans he had an impressive night moving forward to finish seventh.

Chiaramonte is not competing for points in the West Coast Midget Series, but he is in 18th in the standings despite only contesting two of the first six races on the schedule.

Last week Chiaramonte made his first-ever appearance at the Lemoore Jet Bowl. In addition to debuting at the track, he was in a car he had never driven before. He qualified sixth fastest of the 17 cars on hand and placed second in his heat race. He capped the night off with another top-five finish when he placed fourth in the Outlaw Wingless Micro main event.

For fans who may be in the Merced area on Saturday, the track is located at 900 Martin Luther King Jr Way in Merced (95341). Spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with racing at 7:00. The track website is http://www.mercedspeedway.net/ and the office phone is (209) 600-8382.

If you are looking to enter the world of lightning sprint car racing, Chiaramonte’s #73 car is for sale. It is the same car that he drove to the 2021 “Minn-Kota Shootout” championship, 2021 POWRi Southwest Lightning Sprint Car Series “Rookie of the Year” award, 2nd in the 2021 SWLS point standings and SWLS main event wins in 2021 and 2022.

BRODY ROA TAKES SECOND IN VENTURA RACEWAY SPRINT CAR RACE

(Cypress, CA, June 14, 2022) Brody Roa made his only 2022 trip to the Ventura Raceway to race a 410 sprint car a successful one when he finished second in the 30-lap USAC/CRA main event last Saturday night. The finish gave him two podiums in his last two races.

Roa and the #91R team welcomed the journey to the beachside track as it got them away from the sizzling inland temperatures that prevailed in Southern California. The veteran driver was joined by 23 other USAC/CRA series competitors at the track that features background noise from the Pacific Ocean.

Roa, who lives in Garden Grove, California, put the brilliant green #91R through its paces in qualifying on the tiny 1/5 mile oval. He ended up eighth quickest in the field with a time of 13.288. The veteran driver then went from fourth to second in heat race #2. That earned him the outside row one starting spot for the main event.

As soon as the green flag waved at the track that was quickly becoming shrouded in fog, 31-year-old Roa went to the outside to try and beat the pole-sitter to turn one. As he and others quickly found out, it was going to take a lot to get by on the outside. The best hope for all drivers was for the car in front of them to slip off the pole as the outside was not the place to be.

The leader had Roa hounding him from behind, but he was driving a perfect race. His only real bobble came as they exited turn two on the third lap when he slightly slipped off the pole. Roa tried to shoot through the momentary gap, but there was not enough room.

Throughout the remainder of the race, as Roa stalked the leader, he was constantly fending off the advances of the third and fourth-place drivers who did not give him a moment’s rest. Despite a handful of yellow slowing the action, the intensity of the battle between the top four never ended. Roa survived all the thrusts of the third, fourth and fifth place cars and came home with a hard-earned second-place finish.

Roa’s clean driving saw him lauded by winner Tanner Boul at the end of the race. “I think Brody was a little better than us, but there really was not a way to get around somebody without turning them,” Boules told the crowd. “He kind of gave me a little nudge every now and then to remind me he was still there, but he never turned me.”

“We will take it,” Roa said over the track mic. “It was kind of follow the leader around the bottom. Congratulation to Tanner and those guys (the winner and his crew). He never put a wheel wrong the whole time. Thanks to everybody who puts into this program. They have done a ton for us and we appreciate it.”

The second-place finish equaled Roa’s season-best performance that he turned in at the ASCS/CAS race at the Central Arizona Speedway on February 12th.

Up next for Roa will be the inaugural Bubby Jones/Ray Scheetz Memorial at Perris Auto Speedway on June 25th. After that, plans are to head to Indiana for the annual Indiana Sprint Week that begins on July 22.

The new Brody Roa t-Shirts will be available at all races beginning on June 25th at Perris. They are also available online along with other Brody Roa Performance items at the following link https://www.brodyroa.com/.

In 2022, Roa will race USAC/CRA, USAC National, and other select events, in his #91R BR Performance/HD Industries Eagle. He will also drive the #8M for May Motorsports in select USAC West Coast events. The 2019 USAC Southwest and 2017 USAC West Coast champion is always open to discussing other driving opportunities.

Roa and the team want to thank the following sponsors for making the 2022 season possible. HD Industries, Burris Racing, Sander Engineering, Inland Rigging, Caltrol, “Biker” Bruce Fischer, Competition Suspension, ALR Virtual Services, K-1 Race Gear, Molecule, Rod End Supply, Driven Racing Oil, Baldwin Filters, and NGK Spark Plugs. In addition, the veteran driver offers thanks to RDM Mechanics, Fastenal, Coopers Propane, Ten West Towing, Ten West Environmental, TJM Distribution, and Westco International for sponsoring the #8M he will pilot for Jayson May on 10 occasions in 2022.

CRSA Young Guns With Varying Objectives Headed To LOLR

Press Release by Steven Ovens – June 16th, 2022

(SODUS, NY) – Three races are in the books for the 2022 Super Gen Products CRSA Sprints season and there have been three different point leaders. Billy VanInwegen, Jeff Trombley and Jordan Hutton have captured the checkered flag at Weedsport, Fonda and Outlaw respectively.

At the end of 25 laps at Outlaw Speedway Friday night, Hutton out of Hannibal, NY found himself saluting the crowd from his top wing in victory lane. His team left the track with the point lead for the first time in his young career.

Hutton is in just his second season with the CRSA Sprints but is the perfect example of what the CRSA tour can do for a budding driver’s career. Hutton started off fresh in 2021, earning Newcomer of the Year honors for CRSA and Rookie of the Year honors at Land of Legends Raceway.

2022 plans called for a full-on assault of the CRSA Sprints tour plus select 360 sprint car shows. The 305 was the perfect feeder system to trying out some races with the “big boys” of the Patriot Sprint Tour and Empire Super Sprints. Hutton says that the 360 shows have helped his game in the 305 car.

“The 360 races have really taught me a lot about how the air affects the car’s handling,” said Hutton Wednesday evening while preparing for the weekend’s events.

“Coming back to the 305, it slows things down and I can now make moves that I wasn’t capable of making last year.”

Hutton says there’s been multiple reasons for their hot start to 2022 and looked ahead to a challenge that Land of Legends Raceway will pose on Saturday.

“I think we’ve just doubled down on working hard in the shop during the week with our maintenance program. It doesn’t hurt that I’ve been keeping my nose clean in these first three races on the tour. I need to do that again this week at Land of Legends. After winning Outlaw we have to start no better than twelfth Saturday night so we have to be smart. We love the fans there, it’s going to be a great show.”

While one of the CRSA young guns is focusing on the big picture, another is focused on the right here, right now. Whatever is going to get him to Victory Lane the fastest. For the last two weekly sanctioned races in a row at Paul Cole’s Land of Legends Raceway, Ethan Gray has been so close to Victory Lane he could taste it.

Two second place finishes in a row to Bobby Parrow and Darryl Ruggles were separated by an off week at LOLR and a CRSA Sprints stop at Fonda Speedway. One wild flip later, the “Mullet Bullet” was looking at a trashed frame and later found damage to the internal parts of the engine as well.

The team had another chassis, the first one Gray drove to start his career in 2020. But with engine trouble, Gray was almost certain he was out for Land of Legends’ weekly show last weekend. That was, until he arrived back at the shop after being a spectator at Outlaw. Gray’s team had done the necessary repairs to the No. 17E and the Mullet would ride again Saturday.

Gray took the race lead from Dan Craun and was poised for his first career victory at a track he has grown up to love. Two late race restarts exploited Gray’s gear choice and would see veteran Darryl Ruggles race away to his 44th career LOLR win. Another second place run for Gray was more proof that his team is coming into their own in their third year.

“Honestly the big difference this year has been my communication with my dad,” noted the Manchester, NY pilot.

“Dad has been taking my notes and working on a setup I can drive hard with and maintain speed throughout a run. We’ve played with a bunch of adjustments on the car and it is all working right now.”

Gray mentioned that it’s been a whole team effort.

“It’s a credit to my mom and dad helping me to be able to do this, to all of our help in the shop and at the track, our fans in the drive-in area and all of our sponsor support this season. Without any of those pieces we aren’t where we are right now.”

Hutton and Gray are both in search of their first victories at the Land of Legends Raceway this Saturday night in Round 4 for the CRSA Sprints, paying $1,000-to-win. LOLR has been good to first-time CRSA winners with five different drivers getting their first in Canandaigua, NY- Alysha Bay (2018), Erik Karlsen (2019), Johnny Kolosek (2019), Bobby Parrow (2021) and Jason Whipple (2021).

Pit gates will be opening at 3:30PM. A driver’s meeting will take place at 5:10PM with Heat in Engines and Hot Laps rolling off at 5:30PM. Race time is 6:30PM. Fans not able to make it to the track to see the action in person can tune in to Land of Legends TV free of charge, by logging on to www.landoflegendstv.com and creating a free account.

The CRSA 305 Sprints are powered by Super Gen Products with their Champion Power Equipment located in Newark, NY. Associate sponsors for 2022 include A-Verdi Storage Containers, Midstate Basement Authorities, CNY Farm Supply, the Maguire Family of Dealerships, Powdertech Powdercoating, Pit Stop Convenience Stores, PJC Sprayfoam, Profab Enterprises, Eagle Enterprises, Bonnell’s Rod Shop, DisBatch Brewing Company, Magsarus Ignitions, Hoosier Racing Tire, Insinger Performance with their Stinger Race Fuel, My Race Pass and is owned and operated by Mike Emhof Motorsports.

Dover Contends for Runner-Up Result Before Late-Race Incident at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 16, 2022) - Jack Dover was on pace to earn his best result of the season at Huset's Speedway last Sunday when disaster struck.

The promising night began with Dover qualifying seventh quickest in the Chris and Rick Bowers' No. 81 sprint car. A second-place outing in a heat race advanced Dover into the feature redraw, where he pulled the No. 7 to start the feature on the inside of the fourth row.

"In time trails we weren't great, but not bad," he said. "Then in the heat race we were the third fastest car out of all the heat races so that was promising. If you can get in the feature redraw and be starting in the first four rows it makes my job a lot easier."

Dover quickly maneuvered into third place on the opening lap of the A Main by using the bottom of the track. He maintained that position until capturing second place just after the midpoint of the race. Unfortunately, an incident with six laps remaining dropped Dover to the rear of the field.

"On the initial start we did a big wheel stand and luckily a yellow came out so I could get a better restart," he said. "On the second start everybody went into turn one and washed up the track. I stuck the bottom really nice and was up to third in the first half of a lap. We rode around in third for a while and then slid Riley Goodno for second around Lap 15.

"We were really good. The whole feature we were on the free side and got up behind a lapped car. It took the air off my wing. When it did that it sent me spinning and unfortunately I collected Justin Henderson. I was able to push off again and we were credited with finishing 12th."

A trio of Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association races fill the schedule this weekend with The Border Battle running Friday and Saturday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., and Sunday at Huset's Speedway.

"This weekend my goal is to get top fives," he said. "We made the Jackson Nationals last year with the World of Outlaws so I know we can run pretty well at Jackson Motorplex. And we've had good speed at Huset's Speedway this year."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 12 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 2 (2); Feature: 12 (7).

SEASON STATS -

12 races, 1 win, 4 top fives, 7 top 10s, 11 top 15s, 12 top 20s

SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT - Phil Durst

"My family has known Phil since the day I started racing and he's always been around to help," Dover said. "We've taken that friendship and created a business relationship as well. He's an all-around great guy and we need more people like Phil and his family in the racing community."

Dover would also like to thank Liquid Trucking, Carpet Land, Certified Transmission, Backlund Plumbing, True Trucking, Thorpe's Body Shop, Husker Diesel, West Omaha Irrigation and Lawns, Langfeldt Overhead Doors, Speedway Graphics, SSS Motorsports, Speedway Engines, Spike Chassis, Sway Away, ButlerBuilt Professional Seat Systems, Keizer Aluminum Wheels, Schoenfeld Headers, Smith Titanium, K&N Filters, FK Rod Ends, DMI, Vortex Wings, Speedway Motors and Industrial Plating for their continued support.

 

 

Late Race Contact Knocks Ryan Robinson Off Potential SCCT Podium; Looks to Rebound in Petaluma, CA Saturday Night

PETERSEN MEDIA: Ryan Robinson looked to be well on his way to another podium with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour on Saturday, but issues with cars in front of him led to race ending contact just two laps shy of the checkered.

“I feel like we are finally back to the speed we had last season,” Ryan Robinson said. “Saturday night Todd Weiher and the guys put a really good car on track but when Shane Golobic and Justin Sanders got together it left me with nowhere to go and we tore some equipment up unfortunately.”

Saturday night Robinson and the Weiher Racing team were having a great night as the Forrest Hill, CA native timed in fastest in his group for qualifying and backed it up with a second-place finish in heat race action.

Finishing fourth in the High Sierra Industries Dash, Robinson took the green flag from the second row on a very slick racing surface that had built up a thick cushion on each end of the track.

Moving into third when the action came to life, Robinson looked very good up front as he searched after his second consecutive series win. Chasing after Golobic and Sanders who ran first and second, a late restart bunched the field back up and ultimately changed the complexion of Robinson’s night.

The race’s final restart saw the leaders get together while battling for track position and Robinson would get stuck with nowhere to go and make contact which caused damage to the rear end of his car and ended his bid for an SCCT podium.

Though the team was disappointed in the result, Robinson has confidence as they follow the series to Petaluma Speedway on Saturday night, a track where they were victorious at during the championship campaign in 2021.

“We just got caught up in a bad spot on Saturday night,” Robinson added. “Looking forward to this week, I am really excited about getting to Petaluma Speedway. It is a place that I have been fast at each time I have been there, and this No. 14w found victory lane there last year too.

Weiher Racing would like to thank Mako Farms Inc., LP Holdings, Roseville Precision Inc., Escalon Body and Frame, Seth’s Racing Engines, Pettibone Builders, Sipes CC, The Holman Family, Square Tires, Papa Chuck, Dave Harvey Trucking, and Morrison Concrete for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-8, Wins-1, Top 5’s-1, Top 10’s-6

ON TAP: Robinson and the Weiher Racing team will be at Silver Dollar Speedway on Saturday night.

Father’s Day Discount at Marysville Raceway This Saturday

Marysville, CA – (6-15-22) …In honor of the number one movie in America, Top Gun; Maverick, this Saturday night’s theme is to “turn and burn” when it comes to this weekend’s event. Just as in the movie, fans will see pilots navigating a course filled with ever present danger, all striving for one common goal, to complete the mission and win the race.

Father’s will be at the forefront of this weekend’s promotion. All dad’s admission is just $11.00 in celebration of Father’s Day.

The on-track racing will be led by the Joe Hunt Magnetos Wingless Sprint Tour, brought to you by C&H Veteran Enterprises. A plethora of stars and cars are set to shine under the bright LED lighting system at Marysville Raceway. The drivers will be slicing and dicing on the track ultimately finding out who is Maverick, Rooster, or Hangman at the checkered flag. Jake Morgan leads Josh Young by only 16-points in the overall championship for wingless series. This Saturday marks race number five on their calendar of events for 2022. An impressive 49 different drivers are listed as earning points in their previous four events.

It's been a minute since the popular Crate Sprints have been at Marysville Raceway. After four competitive events, the top seven are only separated by a mere nine-points. Talk about taking your breath away. In fact, the top two drivers, Britton Bock and Jason Ballentine, are tied with 180 points. Brett Youngman (179), Mike Hall (178), and Jacob Johnson (175) round out the top five. The chase for the top gun in this division continues this Saturday.

Wilson Earns Top-10 Results During First Two Ohio Sprint Speedweek Races

Inside Line Promotions - HARTFORD, Ohio (June 15, 2022) - Greg Wilson recorded a pair of top 10s during the first half of the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions Ohio Sprint Speedweek.

Wilson and the Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics sponsored Seeling Motorsports machine rallied from 22nd to seventh last Friday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, before advancing a handful of positions on Saturday at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio, to finish eighth.

"I feel like at Attica and Fremont we as a team can be pretty good," he said. "When we're really good we'll have a shot to win races at those places. I felt like we were okay, but like I told Andy (Potter) after the races both nights I don't feel like we're as good as we were. I'm glad we had those good runs to kick off Speedweek, but I feel like that's expected there."

Wilson qualified 17th quickest overall before placing sixth in a heat race at Attica Raceway Park. He then maneuvered from fourth to second place in the B Main before gaining 15 positions - the second most of any driver - during the A Main.

Wilson timed in sixth quickest overall on Saturday at Fremont Speedway, where he picked up two positions in a heat race to finish third. The night ended with a run from 12th to eighth in the feature.

The team returned to the track on Sunday. Wilson qualified seventh quickest before advancing from fifth to fourth in a heat race and from 15 th to 14th in the main event.

Wilson ventured to Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio, on Monday. He qualified 32nd overall and was seventh in a heat race, which buried him in the B Main. However, the team came alive later in the racing program as Wilson rallied from 11th to fourth in the consolation race before hustling from 24th to 14th in the main event. The 10 positions gained were the third most.

The midpoint of Ohio Sprint Speedweek was Tuesday at Sharon Speedway, where Wilson had his toughest outing with a 12th-place result in the B Main.

"We improved every night except last night," he said. "Sunday at Fremont was a bit of a struggle, which kind of surprised me. We were okay, but not how we normally are at Fremont. At Wayne County we were really competitive, which we've been competitive the last few times we've been there. Last night for whatever reason, if it's the car or my style or both, our car didn't feel comfortable or have good attitude."

The remaining Ohio Sprint Speedweek races are Wednesday at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio; Thursday at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio; Friday at Limaland Motorsports Park in Lima, Ohio; and Saturday at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio.

"As a whole I'm hoping we can leave tonight with a little confidence the other way," he said. "When you are prepared and ready and things go your way Speedweek is a lot of fun. I feel we're floating in the middle. We're on the verge of being competitive and on the verge of being bad. Speedweek can do that to you either way. I feel if we can get things righted I can win a race and put our car up front. But we have to get the ship righted here and try to sort out what's happening."

SPRINT CARS & SPECTATOR KING OF THE HILL RACES RETURN TO OHSWEKEN JUNE 17
 

By Tommy Goudge

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (June 15, 2022) – The 25th season of Friday Night Excitement at Ohsweken Speedway continues this Friday, June 17 when O’Neil’s Farm Equipment and Case IH present Spectator King of the Hill night. The Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars and Strickland’s Crate Sprint Cars will return after a week off, while the Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks will contest their second round of Duel on the Dirt Home Races, and spectators will compete for $500 in one-on-one match races.

Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars
Ryan Turner is the de facto points leader in the 360 Sprint Car division entering Friday’s competition. While Turner finished second to Dylan Westbrook on June 3, Westbrook is back in the US competing for the American Sprint Car Series championship. Turner has served notice early this season as the local driver to beat with two SOS tour wins, but he has a host of hotshoes chasing him; Glenn Styres, Cory Turner, Aaron Turkey, and Jim Huppunen all scored top six finishes on June 3.

Strickland’s Crate Sprint Cars
Darren Dryden was the winner on June 3 and leads the Crate Sprint Car points standings as a result. Dryden has had a strong start to the season, with runner-up finishes at Merrittville and Humberstone to along with his Ohsweken win. Dryden will have plenty of competition for the Ohsweken title though, as drivers like Jesse Costa, Lucas Smith, Eric Gledhill, and Curtis Gartly all finished in the top five on June 3.

Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks
Dave Bailey is the Thunder Stock championship leader with two wins to start the season, but his quest for a sixth consecutive title is sure to be contested by a very competitive Thunder Stock field. Chris Hale, Ryan Beagle, Mark Fawcett, and Trevor DeBoer hold spots in the current top five, and all except Fawcett have visited Ohsweken’s victory lane on multiple occasions.

HRW Automotive Mini Stocks
Tyler Lafantaisie has won both Mini Stock races at Ohsweken to start the season and leads the Mini Stock standings as a result. The 2014 champ will face challenges from a deep Mini Stock field, including current top five drivers Jeremy Hughes, Nick Erskine, defending champ Dusty DeBoer, and Jason Tolton

King of the Hill Spectator Races
A $500 grand prize is on the line for the return of Spectator one-on-one match races to Ohsweken for the first time in well over a decade! All entrants are welcome provided they meet the following criteria: Any insured, street legal, four-wheeled vehicle is accepted (no racing tires, no motorcycles/trikes – officials may disallow any car at any time for any reason); Drivers must have a license, wear a seat belt and helmet, and sign the electronic pit waiver:

Last Minute Call Leads Becker to Bradway Top-10 with Van Lare Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- With no plans to run the Dave Bradway Jr Memorial last weekend, a last-minute phone call from Van Lare Motorsports saw Becker make the trip to Placerville Speedway and pick up a seventh place finish with the King of the West Series.

“I was grateful that Jim Van Lare thought to give me a call when he found himself in a bind,” Sean Becker said. I love the Bradway Jr Memorial and I am thankful for a fun with the Van Lare’s.”

26 cars checked into Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, and Becker got the night kicked off by timing the Van Lare Steering Repair No. 5v in 16th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Taking the green flag from the sixth starting position in his heat race, the Roseville, CA driver would get a good jump as he took over the fifth position. Hanging on to a fifth-place finish, Becker found himself in the 14th starting position for the 40-lap Dave Bradway Jr Memorial.

On a very racy Placerville Speedway, Becker was able to use early restarts to work his way through the field. Taking over 10th on the eight lap, Becker would stay well inside the Top-10 for the rest of the race as he worked into ninth by lap 12.

Continuing to fight hard in an action-packed feature, Becker would slip back to 10th briefly before reclaiming ninth with just 15 laps left in the race.

A slew of late race stoppages played into ‘The Shark’s’ advantage as he was able to propel himself into sixth with four laps to go.

With time running out, Becker continued to fight to get into the Top-Five, but in his efforts would see him slip back to seventh as the feature ended.

“I pushed a little to hard late to get into the Top-Five and I bobbled, and it cost us a spot,” Becker added. “Big thanks to Jim Van Lare for giving me a really fast car in the feature event.”

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-12, Wins-0, Top 5’s- 5, Top-10’s- 8

ON TAP: Becker will be back in action with Blake Cook Motorsports on Saturday night in Cottage Grove, OR.

Austin Hartmann earns career-best IRA A-main showing at Angell Park Speedway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 15, 2022 – Another doubleheader of weekend of Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association action brought plenty of learning experiences for Austin Hartmann and his 87A Hartmann Racing team, topped off with a career-best IRA A-main performance, as the Plymouth-based 410 Winged Sprint Car team made its debut appearance at the Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Ill. on Saturday, June 11 and returned to Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. on Sunday, June 12.

On Saturday, June 11, Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing team made the haul south of the Wisconsin-Illinois border to Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Ill. for the 12th annual $6,000-to-win co-sanctioned IRA-Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA) Bill Waite Jr. Memorial Classic, which attracted a stout field of 36 entries.

In his first competitive laps around the ultra-fast and tacky quarter-mile clay oval, Hartmann opened the night by qualifying 22nd in the 36-car field with a lap of 11.976 seconds.

Needing a top-five finish to advance to the evening's 30-lap A main, Hartmann started and finished sixth in the second 10-lap heat race to move on to the B main field.

After starting fourth in the 12-lap B main, Hartmann was running seventh when a two-car spin brought out the yellow flag on lap 10. With the top-four finishers earning spots in the A main, Hartmann restarted fifth and pressured the fourth-place car of Dave Uttech for the final transfer position over the final two laps before settling for fifth to fall just short of advancing to the A-main event.

“Pulling up to Fairbury for the first time as an unfamiliar track for me in-person was pretty neat,” Hartmann said. “I watched film all week, so I knew what we were facing. With the strong field that showed up, the team and I knew we had to be on our ‘A’ game all night. We learned a lot and we are very excited to get back to Fairbury.”

On Sunday, June 12, Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing team ventured to Angell Park Speedway for their second visit of the season to the historic third-mile clay oval in IRA competition. Hartmann opened the program by clicking off the 16th fastest qualifying lap in the 18-car field with a lap of 12.704 seconds.

The third-year Plymouth, Wis. Sprint Car racer rolled off sixth in the first IRA heat race before moving past Trevin Littleton to take fifth on the ultra-fast and undulating race surface on lap 3. Hartmann held on to finish fifth to secure the 15th starting spot in the 30-lap IRA A main.

With the fast and uneven track conditions providing an extra challenge for all 18 IRA A-main competitors, Hartmann drove a steady race to advance to 11th before a caution flag was displayed for the stalled car of Scotty Thiel on lap 16.

On the restart, Hartmann fell back to 12th when Dave Uttech snuck past. Hartmann held the 12th position until the checkered and red flags were displayed simultaneously for race winner Blake Nimee and Danny Schlafer, who flipped in turn three, just as Nimee took the checkered flag at the end of the 30-lap event.

Hartmann came home 11th to record his career-best IRA A-main finish behind the wheel of a 410 Winged Sprint Car.

“Coming into Sunday, we knew it was going to be tricky track conditions,” Hartmann said. “I made a couple mistakes in qualifying, which set us back, but it turned out to be a great night for us finishing 11th in the feature.”

With the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association sitting idle over the upcoming two weekends, Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing team are set to make their debut appearance with the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series this Friday, June 17 and Saturday, June 18 at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis.

“After putting together some solid runs over our past two weekends of action with the IRA, we have a lot to build off of, which has us excited for this coming weekend with the World of Outlaws doubleheader at Beaver Dam Raceway,” Hartmann said.

Those unable to make it to Beaver Dam Raceway for the World of Outlaws doubleheader on Friday, June 17 and Saturday, June 18 can tune into the live streaming coverage of the World of Outlaws Series on www.dirtvision.com.

Additional information on the 87A Hartmann Racing team can be found by visiting the team’s Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/87Ahartmannracing.

Nienhiser Fourth with MOWA at Jacksonville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Friday night at Jacksonville Speedway, Paul Nienhiser was able to nurse a cut right rear tire to the finish line as he finished fourth with the Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA) at his home track.

“We were pretty fast all night long, and after a rework of the track before the feature Scott Bonar and I made some really good adjustments, and we were rolling.” Paul Nienhiser said. “We got into second, but I cut my right rear tire with five or so laps left and just held on and slipped back to fourth.”

Lining up third in his heat race with MOWA using a draw show format, Nienhiser would run much of the race in third on a narrow surface until a last lap pass saw him pick up a second-place finish.

Securing a spot in the nightly redraw, Nienhiser found himself pulling the highest pill available as the six lined him up in the third row of the feature event.

Paying close attention to a complete track rework, Nienhiser and company would make some adjustments to the CAM2 Lubricants/Buffalo Wild Wing/Innovative Design backed No. 9x.

When the feature went green, Nienhiser got off to a great start as he quickly began working his way through the field in pursuit of his first win of the season.

As the track raced extremely well and put on a great show, Nienhiser moved into the second position as he closed in on the race leader. With five laps to go, Nienhiser would fall off the pace a little as his right rear tire began to lose air. Changing the handling of his car dramatically, Nienhiser would slip back to finish fourth, and realize he cut the tire down when he had a chance to investigate his issue.

Saturday night, Nienhiser and company followed MOWA to Fairbury, IL where they invaded the FALS for a night of racing action.

Having another quick start to the night, Nienhiser would line up fourth in his heat race. Able to work his way forward and secure a spot in the Dash redraw, Nienhiser’s third place finish did just that as he was locked into the feature event.

Lining up fifth in the Dash, Nienhiser flexed his muscle and improved his starting position drastically as he worked his way up to second to garner a third place starting position in the feature event.

Jumping into second as the initial green flag flew, it would be negated by a yellow and Nienhiser would have to try again.

With the second start also being waived off, the third time was indeed the charm as Nienhiser settled into third before racing his way into second.

Once in second, another yellow was needed and it bunched the field back up for a single file restart.

With the race leader using the top leading up to the yellow, Nienhiser saw an opening and shot slow to attempt to overtake the race lead. As Nienhiser pulled the trigger, the race leader made the turn to diamond off the corner and Nienhiser got on the binders hoping to avoid disaster.

Slowing up as much as he could, light contact was made between the duo and Nienhiser also caught a rut and went flipping as the leader was able race on.

Making the decision to forego the work area, Nienhiser’s night was over.

“On that restart I committed to throwing a slider as he had been running the top up until that point,” Nienhiser said. “As I made my move, I saw him turn down to run the diamond and I did everything I could to slow up and not ruin his night and I think I did a pretty good job of that. We did make slight contact, but I also caught a rut and tipped over. I hate it for my guys, but we have a fast car and I think we will win one of these really soon.”

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Lubricants, Buffalo Wild Wings, Innovative Design, Mason Sound, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Signature Signs & Design, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, American Rental Center, Fierce Herbicide, Guse’s Pub & Eatery, Wessler Bros Agency, Willhite Mowing, T&K Tree Services, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Midland Performance, Simpson Race Products, Smith Titanium, and Premier Powder Coating for their continued support.

Nienhiser would also like to thank Midland Performance, Kinney Racing Engines, Rockstar Wraps, Heartland Trailer Manufacturing, Robert’s Tire Center, and Stronghurst Collision for their support of the No. 50 car.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-7, Wins-0, Top 5’s-2, Top 10’s-4

Goldesberry Earns A Pair of Top 10’s

Springfield, IL (June 15, 2022) – Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team came away with two Top 10’s this past weekend. The weekend started off Saturday in Fairbury, IL for highly anticipated Bill Waite Memorial that paid $6,000 to the winner.

With 36 sprint cars checked in, the evening did not start off very good for the Rockstar Energy Drink team. After a brief rain delay, Goldesberry went out seventh and timed in 28th quick. This would line Goldesberry up in the fourth row of the heat race. At the drop of the green, Goldesberry shot his Rockstar Energy machine into fourth going into the first corner. He would go on to finish fourth but transferred into the feature event. For the feature, Goldesberry would line up 15th for the 30 lapper. The feature would have many cautions and red flags throughout, one in which included the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim. On lap 13, Goldesberry would make contact with another car and get tipped over on his side. After coming to the work area, the crew would get his left rear tire changed and Goldesberry tagged the rear of the field. He would work his way up and gross the finish line nineth.

“Fairbury was a disappointment. After the rain, we just didn’t have the car free enough for qualifying and we buried ourselves. Our Rockstar Energy team didn’t give up and kept working to get the car better. To leave there with a Top 10 with the way th.ings started wasn’t bad.” Said Goldesberry.

Sunday night the action moved north to the famed Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, WI. This night started much better than the previous. Goldesberry qualified fourth quick out of 18 cars. He would start third in the first heat and go on to finish third which was good enough to get him into the dash redraw. Goldesberry would pull the #2 pill for the second dash and would win the dash to put the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim on the outside front row for the 30 lap feature event. At the start of the feature, Goldesberry would settle into third. After a few cautions, Goldesberry would work his was back into second as Blake Nimee led. With five laps to go, Goldesberry made a run for the lead off the high side of turn 4 but could get the pass. The Rockstar Energy Drink #65 would cross the finish line in second.

“We had a good night at Sun Prairie. We have struggled there the last several times so it was nice to come away with a podium. We put ourselves in position to win and that is our goal every night.” Said Goldesberry.

This weekend the Rockstar Energy Drink team will take off to prepare for a trip to Ohio the following weekend. The plan is to race Attica, OH on Friday June 24 and Fremont, OH on Saturday June 25.

UMSS

New Richmond, WI, June 11, 2022
The Pirtek Renegade winged sprints of the UMSS celebrated kids’ night at Cedar Lake on
Saturday. Nineteen teams checked in to do battle in a pair of qualifying heat races. Youth was
served as a pair of young guns, Owen Carlson in Pirtek heat one and Luke Nellis in the RTS
Podcast heat two, won the qualifiers while stacking up identical 133 passing points.
The 20-lap main event saw Owen Carlson and Chris Vogel redrawing the front row, and at the
drop of the green it was Carlson taking charge early. Behind Carlson, Vogel, Casey Lang, and
Jeremy Schultz were giving chase in front of the three-wide battle between Mike Mueller, Jamie
Ogston, and Mark Chevalier. By lap 5, eighth starting Chase Viebrock had worked up into the
top five. By the crossed flags, Carlson had built up a nearly half-lap lead while Viebrock was
slicing towards the front, eventually making it up to second place with five laps remaining. A red
flag on lap 16 erased Carlson’s huge lead, putting Viebrock right on his fuel cell for the final four
circuits. Carlson had a strong restart, and Viebrock stayed within striking distance. With the
white flag waving, Viebrock attempted to slide into the lead, but the New Richmond Nightmare
didn’t have quite enough low-side speed to complete the pass, with Carlson hanging on to the
point. Another slide job attempt in the final two turns once again only pulled Viebrock even with
Carlson and the duo drag-raced to the double checkers. At the stripe, Carlson bested Viebrock
by the slimmest of margins, 0.067 seconds to be exact, for his first career Pirtek Renegade
feature win in front of Viebrock, Vogel, Chevalier and Lang.
The Pirtek Renegades return to action this Saturday and Sunday, when both the winged and
traditional teams take a weekend tour of central Minnesota. Saturday night, the Renegades visit
Ogilvie Raceway before heading to Granite City Speedway on Sunday, June 19. More

June Swing Continues At Utica Rome this Friday for the Patriot Sprint Tour

PST Media

(Vernon, NY) After a successful trip to Central Pennsylvania, the Patriot Sprint Tour will return to its Central New York roots with a trip to Utica Rome this Friday night for another $3,000 to win the event.

The Patriots were able to return to Utica Rome last season after nearly an eight-year absence, where it was Paulie Colagiovanni picking up the win over Danny Varin and Chuck Hebing.

Once again, in 2022, Davie Franek (295) and Jordan Thomas (279) are sitting 1,2 in the championship standings two races in. However, rookie driver Dalton Rombough has been impressive in his first two PST starts and sits two points behind Thomas in the point standings.

Jake Karklin, who received first place Patriot Points this past Saturday, is fourth in points at 270, and Jonathan Preston completes the top five with 267. It is still anyone’s championship as the top five drivers are all within 28 points of Franek’s point lead. All five are expected to be in attendance this Friday night.

Other drivers expected are platinum members, including Dave Axton, Rookie of the year contender Jordan Hutton, Steve Glover, Andrew Jacobus, and Parker Evans.

Friday’s race will also allow PST drivers to prepare for the Cole Cup, which is Tuesday, October 4, and pays $5,000 to win.

If you cannot make it this coming Friday, you can catch the entire program on Flo Racing. You can also follow along on our Social Media Channels by liking Patriot Sprint Tour on Facebook and following @PatriotSprints on Instagram and Twitter.

The best of Northeast clash this Friday night at the Home of Hero’s, the Utica Rome Speedway. You do not want to miss it!

Racing Resumes on Father’s Day at Tri-City Raceway Park
(Franklin, PA June 14, 2022): After a delayed start to the 2022 season and a memorable finale to the Western Pennsylvania Speedweek, Tri-City Raceway Park will return to action this Sunday, June 19, 2022. This will be a Sunday Thunder racing event, which features the track’s four customary classes in complete programs. And, there will be special gifts for all fathers who purchase general admission tickets!
A.J.Flick form Appollo, PA is on a real hot streak of late and he is expected back to boost his points lead in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Car division. Flick swept the three-race mini series and he has four other wins in the region so far this year.
But plenty of stiff competition will be present. Multi-time track champion Jack Sodeman, Jr. was third on opening night and he would like nothing more than to knock off Flick. So would Brandon Matus, the defending title holder. Other top runners, like Cody Bova, Bob Felmlee, Michael Bauer, and Logan McCandless will be in contention, too. And let us not forget young Vivian Jones, the only female racer in Tri-City’s top class. Although she is relatively new to the winged 410 Sprinters, she has multiple wins and a track championship, to boot, in the Modified Lites.
The top spot in the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds will be up for grabs, as the opening night victor, Erick Rudolph, is not expected to return for this contest. Rudolph, a respected racer from the Empire State, plans on sporadic visits to the Venango County oval. Nick Joy, another New Yorker, is expected and he would like to move up a notch in the finishing order, as he was second to Rudolph in the opening round.
Rick Regalski is recuperating from a shoulder problem, and it has yet to be announced who will fill the seat in Mike Turner’s car. Dave Murdick drove it to victory last week at another area speedway, so he may have the inside track on the ride for Tri-City.
Despite these uncertainties, the fans can expect to see top competitors like defending divisional champion Jeremiah Shingledecker, Franklin’s own Kevin Hoffman, Jimmy “the Jet” Holden, popular Lonny Riggs, and exciting Kyle Fink.
Levi Maskal captured his first career win in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks two weeks ago. Nearly two dozen racers were on hand, and more are expected for this race. Dalton Speer and defending champion Justin Bailey were off the pace in their last outing, so look for them to rebound.
The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks will make their first appearance of 2022. Curtis J. Bish will be there to defend his title, but many others will try to knock the king off his throne.
Racing will begin at 6 p.m., with practice commencing at approximately 5:15. The Pit gates will open at 2 p.m. Spectators can gain admission to the grounds at 4 p.m. to get their favorite seats.
Regular event ticket pricing will apply. So, adults (ages 16 to 62) will be admitted for $15, and seniors (ages 62 and up) will be admitted for $13. Student tickets (for those aged 10 to 16) will be $10. Children (up to age 10) will be admitted for free. The Family Pass will be $45, and that will be good for two adults of any age and two students. Pit Passes will be $30.
If you cannot make it to the track this week to celebrate Father’s Day, a Sunday Thunder program will be held on June 26. A big July 4 Holiday celebration is planned, with racing on Saturday and Sunday, July 2 and 3. Practice will take place on Friday, July 1. There will be free camping for the weekend, plus fireworks and a bonfire on Sunday night.
Watch the website and social media platforms for any changes.
Further information about Tri-City Raceway Park can be obtained by calling the track office at 724-967-4601, or by e-mailing the office at tricityracewaypark2020@gmail.com.

MUST SEE LIGHTS BACK IN ACTION THIS FRIDAY NIGHT

June 15, 2022 – The Maxima Racing Oils Must See Racing Midwest Lights Series will be back in action this Friday night June 17 as part of the inaugural Super Crown Nationals at Lorain Raceway Park in South Amherst, Ohio. It will be race #3 towards the 2022 championship chase.

The MSR Lights will be making its first appearance since Memorial Day Weekend when the series competed in the American Speed U.S. Nationals at Kalamazoo Speedway. Rookie 16-year-old Andrew Bogusz pulled off a surprising win when he captured his first career MSR Lights victory in only his second series start during the American Speed U.S. Nationals.

The series is experiencing a youth movement in 2022. Several young teenage drivers are dominating the headlines as the series has become much younger. Bogusz, along with other teenage drivers Lauren DePasqua, Sawyer Stout, J.J. Henes, and Charlie Bauer, could provide MSR with a pipeline of future talent into the MSR National Series

The series will help kick off the opening night of the Super Crown Nationals when they invade LRP Friday night. The MSR Lights will be a part of an open wheel triple-header that will also feature the Midwest Supermodified Series and the TQ midgets. The MSR Lights will only compete on Friday, but the MSS Supermodifieds will return the following night and compete in twin feature events to close the weekend out.

By virtue of his season opening MSR Lights victory, Cody Gallogly is the current points leader and has stretched his points lead out to 23 points over second place J.J. Henes. Joshua Sexton sits in third place only 6 points behind Henes.

Sprint Car Challenge Tour heads for the cool confines of Petaluma Speedway Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Petaluma, CA…The Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards will finish off a busy four week run with a trip to the always action-packed Petaluma Speedway this Saturday June 18th.

The evening of family fun on Father’s Day weekend marks the first of three season appearances at Sonoma County’s longest running entertainment venue. Following this Saturday’s outing the Sprint Car Challenge Tour will return on July 30th and then September 24th for the annual “Adobe Cup.”

The tacky and hooked-up 3/8 mile clay oval is always a welcomed stop for race fans around Northern California. Petaluma Speedway routinely produces thrilling wheel-to-wheel racing, as lapped traffic can create some of the most hectic competition of any venue on tour. Please note the facility features an earlier start time, with the Pit Meeting at 4pm and cars on track directly after.

“Petaluma Speedway is always a good time and we look forward to competing there on Saturday with SCCT,” commented Auburn’s Andy Forsberg, who has picked up numerous wins in his career at the track. “You are always guaranteed a couple of things in Petaluma. An entertaining main event and an efficient program that gets you on the road at a decent hour. It should be a solid field of cars this weekend so hopefully everyone comes out to support the show.”

Fremont’s Shane Golobic continues to sit atop the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards standings with eight rounds down. Th 30-year-old has earned a pair of wins and five top-five efforts in the seven feature events contested thus far.

Forsberg, however, looks to make his move for the top-spot on Saturday at Petaluma Speedway. The 45-year-old veteran has scooped up a pair of second place finishes in SCCT action so far aboard the Pacific Highway Rentals No. 92 machine. Last season saw Mr. Excitement snag the track title on the famed gumbo.

Defending Sprint Car Challenge Tour champion Ryan Robinson returns to the site of his first series win and hopes to make up some ground on Forsberg in the standings. The Foresthill driver piloted the Weiher Racing No. 14w to a big win at Petaluma last October.

Rio Linda’s Isaiah Vasquez and Placerville’s Shane Hopkins round out the top-five in points and both will look for strong runs on Saturday. Hopkins in fact, is fresh off his first top-five of the season with SCCT. Completing the top-10 heading into Petaluma Saturday are Modesto’s Tony Gomes, Lemoore’s Gauge Garcia, Roseville’s Jodie Robinson, Aromas’ Justin Sanders and Roseville’s Sean Becker.

All cars that have competed at each SCCT event are eligible for the $500 Shop Kyle Larson Bonus if they win at Petaluma on Saturday. If they can do so, it will make for a $3,000 total payday. Standard nightly payouts with the tour continue to be $2,500-to-win and $400-to-start the 24-car main event.

This Saturday is another prime opportunity for drivers and teams to solidify a spot among the top-32 of points, to be eligible for the Wednesday September 7th Pacific Sprint Cup Invitational. Including this weekend there are four events remaining until the Sprint Car Challenge Tour launches the Gold Cup Race of Champions at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico.

Adult tickets this Saturday June 18th at Petaluma Speedway cost $25, with seniors 65 + being $20, juniors age 6-11 are $10, while kids five and under are free. Tickets will be available at the gate on race day.

The pit gate will open at noon, with the front grandstand gate opening at 4pm. The pit meeting will be held at 4pm with cars on track shortly after. Hot laps, Bianchi Farms qualifying and racing will follow.

The Petaluma Speedway is located in the southern part of the wine country at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds just off Highway 101 in Petaluma, California. More info on the track can be found at http://www.petaluma-speedway.com

The Sprint Car Challenge Tour would like to thank Elk Grove Ford, Abreu Vineyards, Hoosier Racing Tires, Flo Racing, Shop Kyle Larson, Pit Stop USA, Tiner-Hirst Enterprise, BR Motorsports, King Racing Products, A.R.T.

Tough luck thwarts strong run for Kyle Hirst and Bates-Hamilton Racing at Bradway Memorial

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…Bates-Hamilton Racing and driver Kyle Hirst appeared to be headed for a successful conclusion at the Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial on Saturday, until issues late in the going while running second hampered those attempts.

The 31st running of the ‘The Bradway’ brought out a packed house of enthusiastic race fans to the Placerville Speedway on Saturday. Butte Valley racer Kyle Hirst assumed controls of the BHR entry for the second time this season and kicked-off the night strong by cutting a great lap in qualifying, timing in third overall.

Always a master of the red clay, Hirst then blasted his way to the lead in his heat race to snag an exciting win aboard the Teichert Construction/ VinylTech PVC Pipe/ Clow Valve/ BenefitRFP No. 42X. Following a fourth-place finish in the SunnyValley Bacon Dash, it set him up for an outside row two starting spot in the 40-lap finale.

The NARC Fujitsu 410 Sprint Car main event saw a multi-groove racing surface prevalent with a nice bottom and a vintage Placerville curb upstairs. Hirst battled among the top-five during the first half of the contest before kicking up the wick past the midway point. He found himself in third just prior to a caution on lap 29.

The four-time NARC champion then went to work on second running Tanner Carrick and made a picture-perfect move to slide in front of him, grabbing the runner up spot with 32-laps complete. Just a couple circuits later however, an issue on the left front forced Hirst to slow and get sideways. He was then contacted by a car with no place to go, putting an unfortunate end to the feature.

“It’s always fun getting the chance to run the Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial,” said Hirst, who captured the event in 2016. “The Bradway is one of the more special races for my family and I, and it looked like we had a great night going, but just had some bad luck get in the way. I would have liked to see if we could have tracked down Corey, who was really fast, but that wasn’t meant to be.”

BHR co-owner Roger Hamilton added, “We wanted to thank Kyle for filling in again for Tim, as well as he and Steven and the entire Tiner-Hirst Enterprise crew for building the car last week for us. Kyle really had the car rolling good all night and he was headed for a great finish, but our unfortunate streak of tough luck struck again. While we have not had the results to show for it, our cars have shown good speed these last several weeks. I’m happy to report that Tim is good to go for Friday night at Chico and the Road to Dirt Cup. We are looking forward to making the trip up north.”

Tim Kaeding and Bates-Hamilton Racing launch the busy “Road to Dirt Cup” at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico on Friday. It all culminates with the $50,000-to-win Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup at Skagit Speedway next week. All events can be seen live via FloRacing.

Bates-Hamilton Racing would like to thank Teichert Construction, VinylTech PVC Pipe, Clow Valve, BenefitRFP, Dan Ewart Sales, B Scadden Design, Advanced Drainage Systems, Custom Pipe and Fabrication, Tigre, North Bay Waterworks, SIP, Star Pipe Products, Kaeding Performance, Kistler Engines, Maxim Chassis, Bell Helmets, K1 Race Gear, Warehouse Paint, Arbo Tech, Performance Powder Coating, Sellers Race Wings, Rod Tiner Racing, ART Enterprises, Tiner-Hirst Enterprise and Vanlare Steering Repair for their support this season.

Zearfoss on pace for big results at Knoxville; Beaver Dam next on agenda
Jun 13, 2022

2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Tenth | 3176 points [436 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (June 13, 2022) – The “Jonestown Jet” Brock Zearfoss was well on his way to his sixth top-ten performance of the World of Outlaws season Saturday night at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, but a tire issue after wall contact forced the Series sophomore to slow and bring out the caution; he was third when the incident occurred with 16 circuits remaining.

Despite the heartache, Zearfoss, who finished second in his respective heat race, as well as second in the evening’s dash to kick-off Knoxville’s Brownells Big Guns Bash finale, would return to the speedway and recover to finish 15th.

Zearfoss’ Saturday night performance was an incredible rebound after being forced to utilize a World of Outlaws provisional one night prior; he finished 19th after starting 25th.

“Definitely some frustration for this team right now. We had a great car all night long and that’s a huge momentum kick for the Knoxville Nationals later this summer. I just wish we could have finished where we belonged,” Zearfoss said, driver of the Brock Zearfoss Racing, Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., Klick Lewis Cars, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, Berkebile Oil Company, X-1 Race Cars, K1 RaceGear, BK Titanium, AL Driveline, Bruce’s Speed Shop, No. 3Z sprint car. “A great effort by this team all weekend long. I can’t say that enough. We have a big weekend ahead at Beaver Dam so the plan is to pick up right where we left off.”

ON DECK:
Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing will continue their sophomore campaign with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series with the Jim “JB” Boyd Memorial at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, on Friday and Saturday, June 17-18. The weekend will award a total winner’s share equaling $30,000; $10,000 on Friday and $20,000 on Saturday.

SPECIAL THANKS:
Brock Zearfoss would like to thank all of his marketing partners including: Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., Klick Lewis Cars, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, Berkebile Oil Company, X-1 Race Cars, K1 RaceGear, BK Titanium, AL Driveline, Bruce’s Speed Shop, Walker Performance Filtration, Bell Helmets, System 1 Pro Ignition, Allstar Performance, Wilwood, FK Rod Ends, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, and KH Suspension.

Thiel powers to second at Fairbury; WoO Beaver Dam double ahead
Jun 13, 2022

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (June 13, 2022) – Nearly capturing his third IRA Outlaw Sprint Series victory of the 2022 season, the “Big Wheel” Scotty Thiel and Team 73 were on the move Saturday night at the always-exciting Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois, but a late race groove miscalculation forced the Sheboygan, Wisconsin, native to take a seat in second.

A late-race restart with nine circuits remaining gave Thiel the chance to capitalize on race leader Ryan Bunton, but his choice to use the bottom groove versus the top allowed eventual winner, Joe B. Miller, to drive by each of them, railing the cushion to maintain momentum on an ultra-fast and racey Fairbury surface. Thiel would eventually get by Bunton for second, but it was too late to catch Miller.

“I’m a little disappointed in myself for not moving around late in the race at Fairbury. I think we had a car that was very capable of winning. But, we’ll learn from that and move on,” Scotty Thiel said, driver of the Gibbsville Cheese, Walkers Game Ear, Professional Plating Inc, Scott Thiel Builders, Stealth Cam, Muddy Outdoors, Complete Water Inc, KSI Supply, GRP Motorsports, Racers Hall, Triple X Chassis, No. 73 sprint car. “Hats off to my team. They work hard and refuse to give up, even when poor luck steps in and interferes. We have a big weekend coming up at Beaver Dam. We’ll do what we can to get a win for the home crowd.”

Despite his attempts to double-up with another podium run the following evening at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, Thiel ran into some poor luck, actually losing a fuel nozzle line while leading the evening’s main event. Thiel would eventually return, but a broken shock bolt would ultimately end his night.

ON DECK:
The “Big Wheel” Scotty Thiel and Team 73 will continue their 2022 campaign with the Jim “JB” Boyd Memorial at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, on Friday and Saturday, June 17-18. The World of Outlaws weekend doubleheader will award a total winner’s share equaling $30,000; $10,000 on Friday and $20,000 on Saturday. Thiel is a recent winner at Beaver Dam Raceway, scoring an IRA triumph on Saturday, April 23.

Westfall finds podium at Lake Ozark; Eastern Storm ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (June 13, 2022) – Despite losing the first night to Mother Nature, the remainder of Matt Westfall’s weekend in the Show-Me State went on as planned, joining the Xtreme Outlaw Sprint Car Series for the 410 Nationals at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Missouri, on Saturday, June 11.

Resulting in his best performance of the season against the Xtreme non-wing warriors, Westfall, driver of Ray Marshall’s Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car, finished second on Saturday night in central Missouri, climbing ahead one spot after starting third on the grid. Although short, the climb was challenging, forced to drive by CJ Leary while avoiding near contact with the outside retaining wall.

Certainly no stranger to Xtreme action at Lake Ozark Speedway, Westfall finished fourth during a Series start at the Missouri complex in early April, charging ahead from the outside of row six.

“I would have liked two chances at Lake Ozark, but you can’t fight Mother Nature,” Westfall said, who earned his first win of the season at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan, on June 3. “Hats off to this entire team, especially Ray Marshall. He gives us the opportunity to go out here and do this. We’ve been pretty happy with our results but I think we owe Ray another win here soon. We’ll work hard to get it during the Eastern Storm.”

ON DECK: Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will continue their 2022 campaign with USAC’s annual Eastern Storm on Tuesday through Sunday, June 14-19, visiting Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania, Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro, New Jersey, Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania, and Bloomsburg Fair Raceway in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, all in consecutive fashion.

Mitchell Faccinto Picks up Top-10 at Dave Bradway Jr Memorial

PETERSEN MEDIA- After enduring extremely bad luck on Friday night prior to pushing off for the feature event where he was scheduled to start on the pole, Mitchell Faccinto and the Tarlton Motorsports team bounced back well on Saturday night as Faccinto picked up a sixth-place finish at the Dave Bradway Jr Memorial.

“Friday was going really well for us, and we put ourselves in a good position to have a good run in the feature but a part failure before we pushed off ended our night,” Faccinto said. “Drew, Shane, and the whole team worked hard to get things fixed for Saturday, and though we had some bugs to work out early we bounced back and had a pretty good night.”

Saturday night in Placerville, CA, Faccinto and company went to work after hot laps showed they still had gremlins to work out. Making a couple quick adjustments, things were pointed in the right direction for the Fresno, CA based team as Faccinto timed the Tarlton and Son Inc./EZ Haul/Executive Auto Sales No. 21 in seventh fastest in time trials amongst the 26 cars checked into the pit area.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, more adjustments after qualifying paid off as Faccinto looked sporty in the 10-lap shootout. Pacing the field from start to finish, Faccinto raced to the win and punched his ticket into the Sunnyvalley Bacon Dash.

Lining up in the second row of the Dash, Faccinto looked for his second Dash win in as many nights but came up a little short as he charged from third to finish second.

Making his way into the 40-lap feature event, Faccinto found himself on the front row for the second time in as many nights, as was able to breathe a sigh of relief when his car fired for the feature on this night.

On a racy Placerville Speedway surface, Faccinto would settle into second when the race came to life, but two and three-wide battles would be the norm when the action was under green flag conditions.

The early part of the race was mired by stoppages and restarts would see Faccinto dip inside the Top-five as he fell to fifth on the 10th lap.

As the action eventually got into green flag rhythm, Faccinto would slip back as far as eight, but in some hotly contested battles he would work his way back forward.

Getting into sixth on the 35th lap, Faccinto would briefly slip back to seventh for a few laps, before securing the sixth position coming to the checkered flag.

“I really have to thank Tom and Tommy Tarlton for continuing to allow me to drive their car,’ Faccinto said. “The guys worked hard all weekend, and we just missed it a little in the feature on Saturday night. We were still good; the track just didn’t quite do what we expected. The good thing is, we keep putting ourselves in good spots and if we continue to do that, I know the wins will come.”

Tarlton Motorsports would like to thank Tarlton and Son Inc., EZ Haul, Executive Auto Sales, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, System 1 Ignition, Vortex Wings, and BG Lubricants for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 20, Wins: 1, Top 5’s: 6, Top 10’s: 12.

ON TAP: Mitchell Faccinto will now begin to Road to Dirt Cup which kicks off on Friday night in Chico, CA before heading to Cottage Grove, OR on Saturday.

Sanders Fourth at Pombo/Sargent Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to the seat of the Mittry Motorsports No. 2x over the weekend, Justin Sanders picked up a fourth-place finish during Friday’s Pombo/Sargent Classic at Ocean Speedway, and then saw a part failure interrupt his hard charge during Saturday night’s Dave Bradway Jr Memorial.

“We had a great car all weekend long, and it was really a bummer we had issues on Saturday,” Justin Sanders said. “We had worked our way forward from deep in the field and still had plenty of time to improve before we had our issues.”

Friday night at his home track, Ocean Speedway, Sanders timed the Farmers Brewing/Mittry Construction/North County Plastering backed entry in ninth fastest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, the Aromas, CA driver recorded a second-place finish which then lined him up in the fourth row of the 30-lap feature event.

On a freshly prepped racing surface, Sanders would jump into the fifth position when the race came to life and held the spot for several laps as the race moved quickly.

Making a move on the 20th lap, Sanders was able to clear his Mittry Motorsports teammate, Max Mittry and overtake fourth. With laps winding down, Sanders challenged Willie Croft for the final spot on the podium, but it was to no avail as he closed the night out with a fourth-place finish.

Saturday night the scene shifted to Placerville Speedway for the Dave Bradway Jr Memorial. Going out early in time trials, Sanders would not time in like he had hoped as he ended up 21st on the speed chart.

In a hole, Sanders would flex his muscle during his heat race, and he sliced and diced his way to a fourth-place finish after taking the green flag from the seventh starting position.

Moving into the 40-lap Dave Bradway Jr Memorial feature event, Sanders lined up in the 16th starting position hoping to work his way to the front with some great contingency up for grabs for the race’s hard charger.

Methodically working his way forward around the track in which he has had so much success at over the last few years, Sanders carked the Top-10 by the 13th lap as he ran a very patient race.

Using restarts to his advantage, Sanders worked up into the seventh position on the 25th lap and was in sixth just two laps later. Working on the fifth spot on the 29th lap, Sanders’ night would change completely as his car lost power and coasted to a stop and ended his night.

“Saturday night was a bummer, because we had a great car and we still had 10-laps left in the race before we broke,” he added. “Still, fun to come through the field like that and I am excited for a busy couple of weeks with KWS up coming.”

Justin and his team would like to thank Farmers Brewing, Mittry Construction, North County Plastering, Alkaline88, Andy’s Construction, Roadside 24hr Service, Wicked Cushion, Roger’s Diner, Factory Kahne, BG Labels and Tee’s, Walker Performance Filtration, Dixon and Son Tires, Ernie’s Service Center, East Lake Village, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., DMI, Keizer Wheels, Wings Unlimited, Ti64 Titanium, AIS Heating and Sheet Metal, Fred Lint and Family, JonSan Racing, Sandblast Service, G&N Construction, Steitz Towing, Durden Construction, Ernie’s Service Center, and Steve Duppman Racing for their continued support in 2022.

ON TAP: Sanders is now set for the ‘Road to Dirt Cup’ which kicks off on Friday night in Chico, CA.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-28, Wins-6, Top 5’s-20, Top-10’s-24

Kyle Keen Competitive in Young 358 Sprint Career
By mraddicted2dirt on Jun 14, 2022 07:30 am

Abbottstown, PA – June 14, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Kyle Keen returned to action over the weekend with a double-dip on Friday and Saturday night after three weeks on the sideline for repairs following a crash at Williams Grove and a subsequent illness.

The 2022 newcomer to the 358 sprint car division knows he needs to race to learn and improve, so he was itching to get back in the seat and get back to building his program.

June 10th: Summer Series / Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

[28 cars, Heat 4th (6), A-main 23rd (11)]

The Kyle Keen Motorsports, Fine Line Auto Body / Keen Parts / Doubling Gap Ranch / Shetron Auction & Equipment, LLC. / Wicked Dog Grille / Heishman Racing Fuels / Wicked Cushion / DL Lehman Construction, LLC. / GearHead Coffee / Jeremy Zarfos Photography / Coyle’s Lawn Maintenance / One Nine Design, No.17k was among 28 cars signed in for the first 358 sprint car Summer Series event of the season at the legendary oval.

“I don’t have many races under my belt, so we’re trying to run a few different tracks. I think that will help me learn to drive these things and improve myself behind the wheel quicker than sticking to one place all year.“, Keen said.

The field was divided into three, 8-lap heats, which were lined up by a pill draw. The top six finishers would transfer directly to the A-main, but only the top four finishers would make the redraw for a shot at one of the top twelve starting spots.

Kyle Keen started 6th, within striking distance of a redraw spot, in heat number two. The start ended up making his job harder. Keen found himself in 8th after the first circuit, but he went to work and found his rhythm.

Lap by lap, Keen worked his way forward again. By lap four he had reached the 5th position and went to work on securing a top four finish. He was able to finally slip by Travis Scott on the final lap and claim a 4th place finish.

The redraw wasn’t very friendly to Keen. He pulled the 11th starting spot for the 25-lap Summer Series feature event. Unfortunately, eight laps into the event Keen clipped the inside guard rail and brought an end to his night.

“I was reeling in 8th place, and he went to the top going into (turn) one, so I dove low and just misjudged it by inches and touched the rail. It was just enough to spin the car and bend the front axle.“, a disappointed Keen shared.

“We had a really good car tonight. We were fast and passing cars. I’m happy about that, especially since it was my first 358 A-main here. I’m just disappointed with how it ended.“

June 11th: Fallen Firefighter’s Night / Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

[29 cars, Heat 2nd (1), A-main 7th (3)]

Saturday night, Lincoln Speedway presented its annual Fallen Firefighter’s Night. The event drew a field of 29 358 sprint cars. Per track rules, the field was divided into four 10-lap heat races. The top five finishers from each would move directly to the A-main, while only the top two would have their starting position handicapped for the night’s main event.

“I’m happy we are able to be here to honor Jerome Guise of Engine 36 who passed away in the line of duty on March 9, 2020, for fallen firefighters’ night. I want to say ‘thank you’ to all our first responders!“

Kyle Keen’s night started with a favorable pill draw that put him on the pole for the fourth heat. Veteran Jeff Rohrbaugh got the better start from the outside front row position and grabbed the early lead. Keen held a firm grasp on 2nd throughout the event but was never able to mount a challenge for the win. He did however, secure a handicap spot.

Keen rolled to the green in the 20-lap feature from inside row two, looking to snag his first top five of the season. The Carlisle, PA native raced solidly inside the top five through the first nine laps, then slipped to 6th during the middle stages of the race.

As the A-main drew to a conclusion, Keen fell one more spot. The 7th place finish wasn’t up to Keen’s expectations for himself, but it was another solid top-10 for the wheelman who has yet to reach double-digits in 358 race experience.

“It’s not really the finish I wanted but I think we continue to get better each time we go out. Slowly but surely. We missed the setup a bit and I don’t have much slick track experience, so I just couldn’t make up for what the car couldn’t do.”, Keen commented.

“I’m happy we got our second top-10 with the 358’s, but disappointed we went backwards. A good pill draw certainly helped our night. When you want to win as bad as I do, it’s always a tough pill to swallow going backwards, especially when you’re racing with guys who have so much experience.“

“I’m just not entirely comfortable with the car at Lincoln yet, but we will keep grinding away at it and I’ll be working on my driving too, which certainly needs to keep improving. With as little experience as I have as a driver in a sprint car, it feels good to be finishing inside the top 10 and being competitive. You either win or you learn, and tonight we had to learn.“, Keen concluded.

Up Next

Kyle Keen Motorsports will take the upcoming weekend off, then will return to action Friday, June 24th when the 358 sprint cars join the 410 Sprint cars for the PA Speedweek opener at Williams Grove Speedway.

During Speedweek, the team will also make its way to Port Royal Speedway on Wednesday, June 29th to compete with the URC 360 sprint cars at ‘The Speed Palace’.

Price Makes Progress With Sides Motorsports During World of Outlaws Weekend at Knoxville

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 14, 2022) - Sides Motorsports car owner Jason Sides is seeing growth with new driver Robbie Price.

"It's a big learning curve," Sides said. "You are being thrown to the wolves. Every time we've hit the track he is moving forward so that's something to build on."

The team invaded Knoxville Raceway last weekend for the Brownells Big Guns Bash with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series. Price qualified 21st quickest in his group and placed third in the non-qualifier race before advancing from 11th to ninth in a heat race and from 14th to 11th in the Last Chance Showdown on Friday.

Saturday featured progress as Price timed in 19th quickest in his group. A ninth-place result in a heat race was followed by a run from 16th to eighth in the Last Chance Showdown. The team elected to use a provisional to start at the back of the main event and Price capitalized by hustling from 25th to 19th - tied for the third-most positions gained.

"Both nights weren't terrible and we made progress," Sides said. "Qualifying is a big thing since he hasn't done it a lot. We just needed laps and took that provisional. If you don't run 25-to-30 laps at a time it's hard to get a grasp on things when you're only running eight-lap or 10-lap heats. We're working at him getting comfortable in the car and it takes time to balance everything just right."

Next up for the team is the Jim "JB" Boyd Memorial this Friday and Saturday at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis.

"I'd love for us to get qualified well and be in a position for the dash, but right now we're looking to be consistent, get in the show and make some laps," Sides said.

QUICK RESULTS -

June 10 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 21; Non-Qualifier: 3 (2); Heat race: 9 (11); B Main: 11 (14).

June 11 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 19; Heat race: 9 (9); B Main: 8 (16); Feature: 19 (25).

Hagar Produces Sixth-Place Outing at Crowleys Ridge Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - PARAGOULD, Ark. (June 14, 2022) - Derek Hagar posted a sixth-place result last Friday at Crowleys Ridge Raceway, marking only the fourth race this season that he didn't finish in the top five.

"We were fighting some issues with the updates to our new ASCS motor," he said. "We have some tuning to do on it and are still trying to figure out some stuff on it. That put us behind the eight ball."

Hagar advanced from fifth to fourth place in a heat race to line up 10 th in the ASCS Mid-South Region main event.

"We didn't get enough points in the heat race to make the feature redraw," he said. "Starting 10th in the feature, there was a lot of dirty air. I was trying to make the top work and fell back quite a bit. I think I was 14th or 15th. I started moving around and we made our way up to sixth. On restarts I was able to rip the top to get by cars. As the race went on the top wasn't as fast as the bottom. You had to make quick work on restarts and hurry up to get back to the bottom.

"You always want to do more, but it didn't work out for us. Sixth place is still a pretty good finish. We know we're capable of doing better. We just had a little gremlin with the motor. Once we get it figured out we've got a good piece."

Hagar owns a 106-point lead in the ASCS Mid-South Region championship standings.

He plans on joining the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour this Friday at Texarkana 67 Speedway in Texarkana, Ark., where the event is also sanctioned with the ASCS Mid-South Region, before competing in the Greg Hodnett Memorial on Saturday at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark.

"We haven't been to Texarkana 67 Speedway so we're looking forward to racing with the ASCS National Tour there," Hagar said. "And the Greg Hodnett Memorial is a race we really want to win. We've been fortunate to win some of the biggest events in West Memphis and it'd mean a lot to add the Greg Hodnett Memorial to that list."

Newlin and BK Motorsports Building Their Program Step by Step

Port Royal, PA – June 14, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit: Chris Hockley / WRT Speedwerx

Zach Newlin and the BK Motorsports team were back at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night with the Grove Financial & Associates / Dillman Hauling / Centre Roofing & Contracting / Mattas Motorsports / Victory Auto / Ron’s RV Sales / The Roast Post / Tuscarora Roofing Co. / FIT Transportation / Kirby Kitner Excavating / Christine Booher, Realtor / T&M Homebuilders / Strange Oval / Walker Performance Filtration / Newlin Bar Service No.77.

The new team’s night got off to a good start, but as is often the case when you are in the early stages of building a program, not everything goes as planned.

June 11th: Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

[21 cars, Heat 4th (6), A-main 17th (10)]

Zach started 6th alongside Kassidy Kreitz in the first of three 8-lap heat races of the evening for the 21 cars that had entered. All cars would qualify for the A-main, but Newlin had his eyes on a top three finish to claim one of the handicap spots, which would have given the Millerstown, PA driver a starting spot near the front of the night’s 25-lap finale.

Zach Daddy, as he is affectionately known by fans, was able to take over the 5th spot on the opening lap, then work his way into 4th on the following circuit. Over the remaining six trips around ‘The Speed Palace’, he was unable to track down Rick Lafferty for a shot at a handicap spot. Looking stronger and more comfortable, Newlin came home 4th.

In the feature event, Newlin lined up mid-pack, on the outside of the fifth row. From the drop of the green, he was on the defensive. After losing a few spots on the opening lap, Newlin searched to find a line that made his X1 Race Car ‘happy’. He battled but slid to a 17th place finish.

“I want to say thanks to Brett (Knable) for this opportunity. We are building something here, and it’s just going to take time. The process can be frustrating, but we just need to keep racing. We will get it figured out.“, Newlin said.

Up Next

Zach Newlin will return to Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, June 18th in the BK Motorsports No.77 for Open Wheel Madness II, where the 410 sprint cars will go after a $5,000 winner’s share. The event will feature the ‘USAC Eastern Blast’ with the USAC National wingless sprints racing for $6,000-to-win and the USAC Silver Crown cars competing for a top prize of $8,000.

Jonathan Allard Returns to Silver Dollar Speedway; Road to Dirt Cup Starts Friday

CHICO, Calif., June 13, 2022 — Chico’s own Jonathan Allard returns to Silver Dollar Speedway this Friday night, June 17th, as part of the Northern Auto Racing Club’s Road to Dirt Cup. Allard, who on September 7, 2014, shocked the racing community by beating World of Outlaws and winning the coveted Gold Cup Saturday night finale, is returning to his home track after a three-year absence. “It will be great to see old friends and fans this Friday,” said Allard. “I am also hopeful to stand on the podium after the main event on Friday night.” Allard has 65 career sprint car wins at Silver Dollar Speedway putting him third on the all-time list. Best of all, and geared towards those nostalgic sprint car fans, Allard will pilot the iconic Williams Motorsports No. 0 that he successfully drove to three NARC titles and numerous main event wins.

SLC Promotions is excited to welcome back the NARC Fujitsu General Sprint Cars this Friday night. The race is billed as The Road to Dirt Cup. The NARC drivers start in Chico on Friday, then head to Oregon, eventually landing at Skagit Speedway in Washington as part of the Super Dirt Cup, paying the winner a whopping $50,000. “We really believe in revitalizing 410-winged sprint car racing in California and wanted to schedule a race with NARC as they headed up to Washington,” said Brad Sweet, part of the SLC Promotions team.

The Friday night race will also feature the B Mods and the Shelby’s Pest Control Hobby Stocks. Both series are vying for an overall 2022 Silver Dollar Speedway championship. Points are updated at our website www.silverdollarspeedway.com.

Allard hasn’t raced at Silver Dollar Speedway since 2019. In fact, Allard hasn’t been in California since 2019, due to the Covid-19 restrictions still in place where he also resides near Auckland, NZ. “Up until recently, the problem wasn’t that I couldn’t come back to race in California, it was that once I flew here, I couldn’t get back to my wife and family in New Zealand,” said Allard. Even though Allard has not raced sprint cars in California for these past three years, he has amassed over 20 wins in New Zealand driving the Dalton’s No. 11USA sprint car. Now with the restrictions relaxed, Allard is hopeful to come back more often. “This will always be my home and look forward to continuing racing here for years to come.”

The NARC Fujitsu General Sprint Cars are led by Fresno’s Dominic Scelzi who holds a 44-point lead over Colfax’s Willie Croft. Scelzi recently won the Brownell/Herseth Classic on April 29th. With that win, Scelzi now has four career wins at Chico. Croft has an impressive nine career wins at Chico, his last came in 2018. Campbell’s Bud Kaeding sits third in the NARC points. Kaeding, the 2017 NARC driving champion, has amassed seven wins at Chico, his last being in 2016. Aromas driver Justin Sanders is fourth in points but comes into this Friday night as one of the favorites to win. Sanders won the Friday night John Padjen Classic in March and has earned 10 wins over his career in Chico. Fifth place in points is Hanford’s Mitchell Faccinto. This year, Faccinto earned nearly $6,000 by winning the Saturday night John Padjen Classic main event. He holds two career wins at Chico.

With all of that mentioned, and the return of Jonathan Allard, fans could also be tempted to see the next big thing in sprint car racing, Clovis driver Corey Day. The 16-year-old is coming off back-to-back wins at Ocean Speedway and Placerville Speedway. Back in April, Day won the David Tarter Memorial at Chico. With last weekend’s triumphs, Day has now won five NARC features in just his first 19 starts. In comparison, it took Kyle Larson 16 races to get his first NARC win. Brad Sweet won two NARC main events in 19 starts. Larson, last year's NASCAR champion, and Sweet, now a 3-time World of Outlaw Champion, can give some glimpse into the possibilities of how special Day is, and could be, going forward at just 16-years-old.

Pit gate for the competitors will open at 2 PM on Friday. Front grandstand gate is set to open at 5 PM.

Fans can skip the lines on race day and purchase their tickets on-line by following this link https://www.eventsprout.com/event/silver-dollar-speedway-2022

Fans can also purchase tickets at the track on race day. Adult general admission for Friday night is $20.00. Juniors/Seniors aged (12-15) or (60+) are $15.00. Kids 11 and under are $5.00. If you purchase ticket on-line, a small user fee is attached to each ticket purchased.

Tanner Carrick Picks Up A Pair Of Second Place Finishes at Dave Bradway Jr Memorial

PETERSEN MEDIA: Doing double duty on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, Tanner Carrick would have a great night as he finished second with the King of the West Series and followed that up with a second-place finish with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

“It is tough to be mad about two second place finishes, but I am a little disappointed we couldn’t pick up at least one win on Saturday night,” Tanner Carrick said. “Clark, Lucas, and Johnny have been working really hard and we were really good in both cars we just came up a little short.”

With 26 King of the West 410’s checked in on Saturday night, Carrick would time the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83T in second fastest in qualifying time trials before racing to a third-place finish in his heat race.

Earning a berth into the Sunnyvalley Bacon Dash, Carrick would finish fifth and line up in the third row for the 40-lap Dave Bradway Jr Memorial.

Despite high temperatures and a lot of cars in the pit area between the two division, the track was in excellent shape as the 410ci race came to life. Using a restart to jump into fourth on the eighth lap, Carrick would roll the bottom to take the third position on the ninth lap.

A restart on the 15th lap would see Carrick make a bid for the race lead, but a quick caution would slow the battle. Under that caution, Carrick would be moved up to second as it was deemed second running Dominic Scelzi jumped the previous restart which propelled him into the lead.

Running hard in the second position, Carrick would noticeably begin to cut into Corey Day’s lead as the raced through traffic. Gaining on the leader, a couple of untimely yellows would get the leaders out of traffic and give them a clear track for the final few laps as Carrick capped the KWS version of the Bradway Jr Memorial off with a second-place finish.

SCCT 360ci action saw the Lincoln, CA driver get the night kicked off by timing the Conti, Harris, and Sloan/Hanson Truss/Timberworks Construction entry in third fastest in his qualifying group.

From his front row starting position in heat race action, Carrick would power himself to the all-important win, which placed him in the High Sierra Industries Dash.

Picking up a fifth-place finish in the Dash, Carrick would match his starting position from the KWS feature as he looked to be one spot better in the end with the SCCT.

With track extremely slick for the 35-lap finale, Carrick was again on the move as he worked his way around the ¼ mile bullring. Running back in fourth as he chased after lead trio of Justin Sanders, Shane Golobic and Ryan Robinson.

A late restart saw Golobic and Robinson have issues and it bumped Carrick into second and gave him one last shot at picking up a win on Saturday night.

Giving chase, Carrick would be unable to make a bid for the lead as he closed his night out with his second second-place finish.

“There were a few things I could have done in each race that could have given us a better shot, but you can always look back and say that, ” Carrick said. “We are really good right now, and I hope we can continue this speed as we follow the KWS up to Dirt Cup.”

Tanner Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, Interstate Oil, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Emerald, Timberworks Construction, Hanson Truss, Eddie’s Lincoln Auto Body, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 28, Wins: 4, Top 5’s: 15, Top 10’s: 20

ON TAP: Tanner Carrick will now turn his attention to the Road to Dirt Cup as he will be in Chico, CA on Friday night, Cottage Grove, OR on Saturday, Skagit Speedway on Monday, and then back at Skagit Speedway Thursday-Saturday for the 50th Super Dirt Cup.

Part Failure Ends Justyn Cox’s Night at Bradway Memorial

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night in Placerville, CA Justyn Cox had a turbulent night with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour that ultimately ended with a part failure during the 35-lap feature event.

“A couple weeks ago we rolled out a new car and some other new components and we have been figuring different things out with each and every race,” Justyn Cox said. “Saturday night we had some issues early, but we were able to tweak on our car for the feature event to only have a part failure end our night early.”

With 35 cars on hand for the Dave Bradway Jr Memorial, Cox got off to a quick start as he timed the Berco Redwood/Berry Lumber/MDW Sports backed No. 31c entry in second fastest in his qualifying group.

A tough start to his heat race saw Cox get on the bike in the first turn and lay his Cox-Berco Racing car on it’s side and draw the red flag.

Able to restart with no significant damage, Cox would do a great job of wrestling his machine around the ¼ mile bullring as he battled for a transfer into the feature event.

Racing into fifth, Cox would pressure for fourth but would settle into the final transfer into the 35-lap feature event as he would put himself in the 19th starting position on what would be a very slick racing surface that built up a sizeable cushion in each corner.

Making changes leading up to the feature event, Cox would slowly work his way forward as he mired in thick traffic on the racy speedway. Getting into the Top-15 just before the halfway point, Cox would move into 13th on lap 18.

The run in 13th would last only a few laps as his night came to end with apparent issues on the 23rd lap as he exited the track and made his way back to his pit area.

“It was a bummer, but the bright side was us going back to some old set up notes form a few years ago and me feeling really good on the slick surface,” Cox added. “Thanks to all these guys for continuing to work so hard for me.”

The Cox-Berco Racing team would like to thank Berco Redwood, Berry Lumber, Michael David Winery, MDW Sports, Stroppini Enterprises, Cranked Naturals, Trex, Master Metal Products, Adrian Blanco Jewelry, PM Truck Repair, Justice Brothers, K&N, Konnected, A.R.T., Sacramento Theatrical Lighting, College Cyclery, Arai, Racing Optics, All American Powder Coating, VSR, , Tim’s Hot Rod Shop, Shell Shock, Don Ott Racing Engines, and Richmond Engines for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-12, Wins-0, Top 5’s-2, Top 10’s-5

ON TAP: Cox is hoping his 410ci engine arrives this week so he can travel to Chico, CA with the King of the West Series on Friday night.

Willie Croft Continues Strong Run with KWS

PETERSEN MEDIA- Willie Croft has been on a roll over the last month with the King of the West Series. The Colfax, CA driver had another strong weekend as he ran third on Friday night in Watsonville, CA and backed it up with a fourth place run at the Dave Bradway Jr Memorial on Saturday in Placerville, CA.

“Things have been going really well for us, and it is a great time to be streaking with so many big races coming up for us,” Willie Croft said. “I have to thank everyone who lends me a hand for their help, and our marketing partners for continuing to help us get up and down the road.”

Saturday night in Placerville, CA, Willie Croft kept his qualifying streak alive at the Dave Bradway Jr Memorial as he earned Car Wash Mike Fast Time honors for the fourth consecutive season.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Croft was able to work his way up to third aboard the Holey Smokes BBQ/Rudeen/Amerikote backed No. 29 mount. Battling cooling issues on Friday night and again on Saturday, Croft made the call to switch engines before the all-important Dash.

In a mad scramble, the engine change went off without issue, and ‘Double Down’ made the call for the Dash where his sixth-place finish put him in the third for the 40-lap feature event as he sought after his second career Dave Bradway Jr Memorial win.

Quickly working his way into the Top-Five, Croft would find himself battling with the likes of brother-in-law, Kyle Hirst and Tanner Carrick as they jockeyed for position all over the slick Placerville Speedway surface.

Late in the race, Hirst would have issues and Croft made contact with him causing his bumper to get into this right rear. With still a handful of laps left in the race it looked like the issue would possibly prevent Croft from making it to the finish.

With luck on his side, the right rear would hold, and Croft would cross the start/finish line with a fourth-place finish.

Also, in action with the series on Friday night in Watsonville, CA, Croft would time in third fastest of the 21 cars that checked into the pit area. Running fourth in his heat race, Croft would back it up with a fourth-place finish in the Dash.

Taking the green flag from the fourth position in the 30-lap ‘A’, Croft would quickly jump into third as he chased after Corey Day and Dominic Scelzi. As the race clicked off laps in a hurry, traffic would become a factor but it didn’t hinder the Colfax, CA driver.

Keeping pace with Scelzi as Day got away, Croft was able to tally another KWS podium.

“We have a good car, and I think we can even be a little better,” Croft added. “We have a tough slate of races in front of us, but I am excited to get back up to Skagit and run the Dirt Cup.”

Willie Croft Racing would like to thank Holey Smokes BBQ, Rudeen, Amerikote, SCI, Brown and Miller, FK Rod Ends, Factory Kahne, Schoenfeld, Team Simpson, Stilo, Smith Precision Products, Kaeding Performance, AL Drivelines, XYZ, Vortex Wings, DoTerra and GUTS for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-14, Wins-1, Top 5’s-8, Top 10’s-10.

ON TAP: Willie Croft returns to action on Friday night in Chico, CA, Saturday night in Cottage Grove, OR, Monday in Skagit, WA, and then again on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in Skagit, WA.

Joel Myers Jr Records First Career SCCT Podium at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Plans changed for Joel Myers Jr on Saturday morning. Parting ways with Vertullo Motorsports, the thrash was on to get his family car ready for Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, and it would pay off as he picked up a third-place finish.

“After making the tough decision to part ways with Vertullo Motorsports Saturday morning, we were in a scramble to get our car ready and we were able to make it all happen and roll through the pit gate just before the driver’s meeting,” Joel Myers Jr said. “I really have to thank my family, Cody, and the Hammes’ for all of their help to make this possible.”

Timing the All About Fire Protection/Hi-Plains Building Division/PitStopUSA backed No. 46jr in third quickest in his qualifying group, the 16-year-old pilot then went on to pick up a convincing win during heat race competition.

With the win, ‘Jr’ made himself eligible for the Dash where he picked up a third-place finish and put the Joel Myers Racing mount in the second row of the 35-lap feature event.

On a very slick surface following the conclusion of the 40-lap KWS feature, Myers Jr would roll the bottom in the early goings of the feature though it didn’t quite pan out as he slipped back to fifth.

Getting up on the thick Placerville Speedway curb, Myers Jr would begin to go the right direction until a slight bobble saw him fall back to seventh before he used a restart to reclaim fifth.

A late race restart worked out in Myers Jr’s favor as a couple of cars in front of him got together and propelled him to third in what would be a two-lap dash to the finish.

Unable to improve his finishing position, Myers capped off an eventful day with his first career podium with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

“I said it earlier, but I really am thankful for the opportunity that Vertullo Motorsports gave me, and I do wish them all the best moving forward,” Myers Jr said. “Saturday night though, was a great group effort by so many people. Great to get on the podium and hopefully we can have a good run with the 410ci over the next week.”

Joel Myers Jr Racing would like to thank All About Fire Protection, Hi-Plains Building Division, PitStopUSA, DirtDudes, System 1 Ignition, Weld, Smith Ti, Y2K Gaming, Shark Racing Engines, Lucas Oil, Vaider, L Delo Designs, Walker Performance Filtration, ShopRico.Com, Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Kaeding Performance, Triple X Race Co., and Ogio, for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 26, Wins-0, Top-5’s- 6, Top-10’s-10

ON TAP: Myers Jr will now hit ‘The Road to Dirt Cup’ as he will be in Chico, CA on Friday night, Cottage Grove, OR on Saturday night at Skagit, WA on Monday night before Dirt Cup kicks off on Thursday night.

Faccinto Nets Bradway Memorial Top-10

PETERSEN MEDIA- Though disappointed in himself for how he got timed in on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, Michael Faccinto rebounded well as he worked his way forward in Saturday night’s SCCT feature event and recorded a ninth-place finish during the Dave Bradway Jr Memorial.

“I really put us in an early hole with my two qualifying laps, and timed us in fifth fastest in our group,” Michael Faccinto said. “We were able to race our way out of our heat, and then put on a charge in the feature to salvage to night with a Top-10 at a race that means so much to this F&F Racing team.”

Timing the Bushey Financial Services/C&H Motor Parts/Lucas Oil backed No. x1 in fifth fastest in his time trial group, Michael Faccinto would line up in the third row of his heat race.

On a very racy Placerville Speedway in heat race competition, Faccinto had his elbows up as he worked his way safely into the feature event. Finishing third, the Hanford, CA runner put the F&F Racing machine in the 13th starting position for the 35-lap Dave Bradway Jr Memorial feature event.

With the SCCT running its feature after the KWS 410ci feature, the field was greeted to a very slick surface with a monster cushion built up on both ends of the track.

The waiving of the green flag saw Faccinto slip back early as he fell all the way back to 14th as he navigated in thick traffic. Racing into 12th on the 11th circuit, Faccinto continued his pursuit towards the Top-10 as the 14th lap saw him take over the 11th position.

In hard fought action, Faccinto would get drop back to 12th during the midway portion of the race as racing action was two and three-wide all over the ¼ mile bullring.

Giving himself a little breathing room, Faccinto worked into 11th with six laps left in the race, and then cracked the Top-10 just before a yellow flag was needed. Taking advantage of a restart mishap, Faccinto settled into ninth where he went on to close his night out.

“After time trials, it was really a solid night up on the hill,” Michael Faccinto said. “Alan Bradway and the guys are really getting me more comfortable in their car, and I am really excited for the rest of the Summer.”

F&F Racing would like to thank Bushey Financial Services, C&H Motor Parts, Lucas Oil, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, Pacific Highway Rentals, PitStopUSA, FVP, CRV Carbon Solutions, American River Overhead Door, All Pro Heads, Engler, and Don Ott Racing Engines for their support.

ON TAP: F&F Racing will be back in action on June 25th at Placerville Speedway.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-11, Wins-0, Top 5’s-3, Top 10’s-5

Justin Sanders and Dale Miller Motorsports Strike Gold at Placerville Speedway…Again

PETERSEN MEDIA- Over the last several seasons Justin Sanders and Dale Miller Motorsports have proven to be formidable opponents at Placerville Speedway as they have nearly been unbeatable when the sign into the pit area. That sentiment remained true as the duo picked up their third win in as many starts together at the ¼ mile bullring in 2022, and the fourth for Sanders on a personal level.

“Placerville Speedway is Dale and Tara Miller’s home track, and with some many of our partners from the area it is so great to run well here and win in front of many of them,” Justin Sanders said. “To win during the Bradway Jr Memorial is special, and to sweep the season series with the SCCT at the track is also very cool.”

With 35 cars on hand for the long-standing event in Northern, CA, Justin Sanders got off to a great start as he earned fast time honors aboard the Thompson’s Buick-GMC/Thompson’s Jeep-Ram/Dale Miller Septic Inc. backed No. 4SA.

Lining up fourth on the grid in heat race competition, Sanders firmly kept himself in a transfer position as he finished second, which put him solidly in the impending 35-lap feature event as well as a spot in the High Sierra Industries Dash.

Picking up the win in the Dash, Sanders would lead the field to green for the 35-lap feature event on a slick Placerville Speedway surface that had built up a massive curb at both ends of the track.

When the race came to life, Sanders was very stout out front as he set a torrid pace aboard the Dale Miller prepared entry. Getting into thick traffic, Sanders would make some key moves as he fended of Shane Golobic who gave chase.

A late race restart set up for an exciting conclusion to the feature event, but on this night there was no denying Sanders as he raced on to pick up the win in front of a capacity crowd packed into Placerville Speedway.

“Traffic was tricky, and I knew Shane and Tanner Carrick were probably gaining on me,” Justin Sanders said. “We had a late restart and I knew Shane would be tough, but we were able to race to the win.”

The Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Thompson’s Buick-GMC, Thompson’s Jeep-Ram, Dale Miller Septic Inc., North County Plastering, 24 Hour Road Side Service, Anrak Corporation, Smith Titanium, Absolute Auto Glass, Frank’s Body Shop, Champion Brands Racing Oil, Rider Racing Engines, Walker Performance Filtration, Factory Kahne Shocks, Vortex Wings, TJ Forged Wheels, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., King Racing Products, and A.R.T. Speed Equipment for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 6, Wins- 3, Top-5’s-5, Top-10’s-6

ON TAP: Sanders will return to Placerville Speedway with Dale Miller Motorsports on the 4th of July.

Amantea Ready for USAC National Sprint Cars Debut During USAC Eastern Storm

Inside Line Promotions - MOUNT POCONO, Pa. (June 13, 2022) - Joey Amantea is excited to make his USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars debut this week.

Amantea plans to tackle the final five races of USAC Eastern Storm, running Wednesday at Bridgeport Motorsports Park in Swedesboro, N.J.; Thursday at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa.; Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa.; Saturday at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa.; and Sunday at Bloomsburg Fairgrounds in Bloomsburg, Pa.

"The goal is just to make every show," he said. "We're not looking for anything spectacular, just to get more experience and laps. With the speed we've had in the 360 we're looking for solid nights."

Not only will this week mark Amantea's debut with the series, it will be his first time racing a 410ci non-wing sprint car.

"One of the biggest things this week is it will give us more experience with guys who run for a living, with how hard I can push the car or anything along those lines," he said. "Just the added experience that comes with running with the national tour will be so beneficial."

Amantea has taken a step forward in 360ci non-wing action this year as he ranks fourth in the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars Series championship standings thanks to five top fives and seven top 10s.

"It's been a great year so far in the 360s," he said. "Next year we want to go to Indiana Sprint Week and do more stuff with the USAC National Sprint Cars so hopefully we can put together a good week to build on."

SEASON STATS -

12 races, 0 wins, 5 top fives, 7 top 10s, 9 top 15s, 9 top 20s

Mallett Records ASCS Mid-South Region Triumph at Crowleys Ridge

Inside Line Promotions - PARAGOULD, Ark. (June 13, 2022) - Jordon Mallett earned his second straight feature victory last Friday at Crowleys Ridge Raceway, which hosted an ASCS Mid-South Region event.

"We felt pretty good in hot laps and we decided to let the track come to us a little bit," he said. "We were good in the heat race and went from fourth to second. We were chasing Cody (Gardner) and felt the car was pretty close."

Mallett's run in a heat race from fourth to second place advanced him into the feature redraw and he pulled the No. 3 to start the A Main on the inside of the second row.

"We fine-tuned it a bit for the feature," he said. "I knew we were in good shape coming off the exit of turn two on the first lap. We were three wide for the lead. I expected to be a little snug early on and let the track come to us, but right off the bat the car was doing what I wanted it to do.

"Cody and I had a good race for about the first 10 laps. He was ripping the top and I was forced to run the bottom. They gave us such a good track to do that with. I led several of those 10 laps and he led a few of them, but I didn't seal the deal around Lap 10. Once I cleared him I swapped lanes and went to the top on one end and stayed on the hub on the other. I kept my momentum up to where they'd have to slide me to pass me and if they did I could turn and go back under them.

"I got slid once. I got crossed up trying to change my line and got slid going into turn three. I crossed him back up and was still leading by the time we got to the flagstand. We were really good and didn't have to show all of our cards. It's always good, clean racing with Cody. We can go at it hard and put on a really good show for the fans."

The victory was his second career with the ASCS Mid-South Region.

Mallett plans on racing with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour this Friday at Texarkana 67 Speedway in Texarkana, Ark., and Saturday at Boothill Speedway in Greenwood, La.

Jeff Halligan Nets Tenth Top-10 of 2022 Season

Port Royal, PA – June 13, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Jeff Halligan and the Risser Motorsports team have been steadily getting better and better as the season has unfolded. As the team has shared before, their approach to the season has been a phased one. With key races circled on the calendar, each race leading up to the milestone events is an opportunity to prepare, improve and be ready for the test.

The most recent marked event on the team’s calendar was the Bob Weikert Memorial, in which the team earned a podium finish against the All Star Circuit of Champions. Following that, the team turned their focus to Pennsylvania Speedweek, which begins in late June. Halligan kicked off the team’s month of June and Speedweek preparation by winning at Port Royal Speedway in the Risser Motorsports / TheTreeCenter.com / Victory Auto of Lewistown / EMM Sales & Service / Jake’s Golf Carts, No.45.

June 11th: Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

[21 cars, Heat 1st (1), A-main 9th (9)]

Halligan started on the pole of the last of three 8-lap heats for the 21 cars on hand. He never gave the rest of the field a chance to take a shot at him. The Ephrata, PA wheelman dominated the heat, winning by 4.076 seconds over Michael Walter II and Mike Wagner. Trenton Sheaffer and Logan Wagner rounded out the top five.

The starting lineup for the 25-lap feature event was set using a handicapping format, which placed Halligan on the inside of row five as the highest point man in the season standings to record a top three finish in the heat races.

Although Halligan has made a habit of advancing in nearly every race he has competed in at the fairgrounds half-mile in Port Royal this season, on this night he wasn’t able to move forward during the A-main.

“We were a couple adjustments away from passing cars. I was good in (turns) one and two, and I could get runs on guys, but I just couldn’t get through (turns) three and four the way I needed to.“, Halligan shared.

“We’ve been really consistent with a lot of top-10’s, so I’m definitely happy about that. Now we’re aiming for top-5’s on a regular basis.”

Up Next

Jeff Halligan will be back at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, June 18th for Open Wheel Madness II, featuring the ‘USAC Eastern Blast’ USAC National Sprint Cars racing for $6,000, USAC Silver Crown teams competing for $8,000, & the 410 winged sprint cars chasing a top prize of $5,000.

With no racing slated at Port Royal on June 25th, the event will be the final chance for Halligan and crew chief Kyle Defibaugh to fine tune the Risser Motorsports No.45 before PA Speedweek rolls into ‘The Speed Palace’ on Wednesday, June 29th. The team plans to compete in several Speedweek events. More details will be released soon.

Williamson Produces Top Five During POWRi 410 Outlaw Sprint League Show at Lake Ozark

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (June 13, 2022) - Garet Williamson recorded his 10th top-five performance of the season last Saturday during a POWRi 410 Outlaw Sprint League event at Lake Ozark Speedway.

Williamson guided the Bryant Paver Motorsports No. 24 to the fifth quickest qualifying time before finishing third in a heat race during the first half of the program.

"It was a good night for us in a 410," he said. "We would have liked to be a little better, but we haven't been the best in 410 qualifying so it wasn't bad. Then in the heat race we were just as fast as the two leaders."

Williamson lined up on the outside of the third row for the main event.

"I think we came out of turn two in third and someone spun out so we had a complete restart," he said. "We didn't get the restart we needed the second time and had to pick our way forward. The track was fast around the top and hard to do anything. It was so slick that when you'd get a run on someone and pull down for a slider you'd just spin your tires and lose momentum."

Williamson gained a position to place fifth.

The team returns to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition this Friday at Texarkana 67 Speedway in Texarkana, Ark., and Saturday at Boothill Speedway in Greenwood, La. It will be Williamson's debut at both tracks.

"I think our goal is top three each night and we need to get a win soon," he said. "Hopefully we can have a decent track both nights and can battle up front. Our team is good enough and we're working hard to get our first ASCS National Tour victory this year."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 11 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 5 (6).

Starks Delivers Fourth Feature Win in Fifth Start This Season

Inside Line Promotions - ALGER, Wash. (June 13, 2022) - Trey Starks returned to Victory Lane on Saturday at Skagit Speedway, where he become the first two-time winner in the 360ci winged sprint car division this year.

The win was his fourth overall in five races this season, giving Starks the best start to a season in his career.

"It started off good as we went quick time in qualifying," he said. "We went from fourth to win it in the heat race as we worked into the lead on the last lap. The car felt pretty good. We rolled the six for the dash so we had to start on the back row. The car felt good again and we advanced from sixth to third."

Starks lined up on the inside of the second row for the main event.

"We had a good battle through the whole race," he said. "We ended up running a different right rear tire than we normally do because of availability. That was a little different in the feature I noticed, but we were still pretty solid. We found more speed toward the end when I moved my wing back.

"We raced in third for a while and we got into second around Lap 10. We followed Greg (Hamilton) for a handful of laps and then we got into traffic. Things got a little dicey, which forced all of us to run some different lines than we were running for most of the race. I slipped back to third for a couple of laps, but we were able to maneuver through traffic a little better. We got into second and then took the lead with I think two laps to go. Even coming to the checkered it was a barrage of lapped cars. I didn't even see the checkered come out. It was definitely exciting. We were happy to put on a show."

Starks also advanced from fourth to second place in a 410ci winged sprint car dash.

"We were able to get a couple of laps in the 410 so that was good as well with Dirt Cup coming up," he said. "We were quick time in hot laps and there was an eight-lap dash. We couldn't track down the leader, but there weren't many laps so we were happy to see how our car handled in traffic."

Starks plans on competing this Saturday at Cottage Grove Speedway in Cottage Grove, Ore., with the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series and Sunday at Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash., before tackling several races at Skagit Speedway next week.

Gravel Garners Two Seventh-Place Results at Knoxville Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 13, 2022) - David Gravel earned a pair of seventh-place finishes last weekend during the Brownells Big Guns Bash at Knoxville Raceway.

The two top 10s keep the Big Game Motorsports driver ranked second in the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series championship standings - only 64 points out of the lead.

A third-place qualifying effort in his group kicked off the action on Friday when Gravel placed second in a heat race and seventh in the dash to line up on the inside of the fourth row in the A Main.

"We had a decent dash draw and we threw something at it for the dash, but it didn't really work out," he said. "We went back to where we were before and were able to maintain in the feature."

Gravel ran just outside the top five throughout the main event before recording the seventh-place result.

The team returned to the half-mile oval on Saturday and started the night by setting quick time in qualifying out of the nearly 50 drivers. A heat race triumph advanced Gravel into the dash. Unfortunately, he pulled the highest number - eight - to start the dash on the outside of the fourth row.

"We got a great pill draw and was able to set quick time," he said. "Then I felt really good in the heat race. It was the best the car felt all weekend. But we had another terrible dash draw and I didn't feel like I could charge and move forward.

"Everybody is pretty fast. There's a lot of good guys. In clean air you can feel pretty good, but once you get close to a guy it's hard to make a move, maneuver and pass him."

Gravel placed seventh in both the dash and main event.

Up next for the team is a trip to Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis., for the Jim "JB" Boyd Memorial this Friday and Saturday. Gravel has finished third at the track during each of the last three years.

"I like Beaver Dam a lot," he said. "It's a fun race track. I've been pretty good, but haven't been able to win there yet. I'm excited to go there for two days in a row."

June 10 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (2); Dash: 7 (4); Feature: 7 (7).

Bayston caps Knoxville doubleheader with podium score; Beaver Dam weekend next

2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Seventh | 3418 points [194 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

CARLISLE, Pa. (June 13, 2022) - A perfect way to welcome new partner, Bubbly Brands, to the CJB Motorsports family, Lebanon, Indiana’s Spencer Bayston put together a sound performance at the Sprint Car Capital of the World during the recent weekend, capping the annual Brownells Big Guns Bash doubleheader at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, with a pair of top-ten finishes, highlighting the weekend with a podium score during the Saturday night finale.

Finishing in the exact same position as he started, Bayston, ace of the Signing Day Sports, Bubbly Brands, JRC Transportation, Nyce Crete and Landis, Ecynbro Trucking, C&S Lawn and Landscape, Kistler Engines, The Dunn Group, Highlands’ Power Sports, High Performance Lubricants, FK Rod Ends, Allstar Performance, No. 5 sprint car, finished third in his podium run, nearly powering by eventual winner, Brian Brown, on lap 16 before settling back into third. A runner-up finish during his respective heat race led to the evening’s dash where he also finished third.

Bayston opened the Knoxville Raceway doubleheader with a tenth-place score on Friday, finishing third in his heat race to qualify.

“Coming out of a race with a podium is great anywhere, but to do it at Knoxville Raceway, while prepping for the biggest race of the year in August, is more than special,” Spencer Bayston said, who now owns eight top-five finishes in his World of Outlaws rookie campaign. “We went into Knoxville with a different car and set-up package. Barry (Jackson) hasn’t had a package like this before, so the first night was all about establishing a base and having something to build off of. We felt really stable on Saturday and we had speed all night long. A weekend like that keeps you excited, as well as motivated, and those are two elements that are important in this sport.

“We have some special things in the works for this team,” Bayston added. “We’ll be making those announcements soon…I’m excited to get going.”

ON DECK:
Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports will continue their 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with the Jim "JB" Boyd Memorial at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, on Friday and Saturday, June 17-18.

Brian Brown victorious with Greatest Show On Dirt at the Sprint Car Capital of the World

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (June 13, 2022) - It was a near-perfect weekend for “Blackjack” Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing, not only accomplishing a pair of podium results including a victory at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, but doing it with the Greatest Show On Dirt in town, ultimately capping the weekend doubleheader with a victory in the Brownells Big Guns Bash finale on Saturday, June 11.

Commencing his victory march from the outside of row two, “Blackjack” was forced to outduel three-time World of Outlaws champion, Brad Sweet, in his quest for top honors, getting by the Kasey Kahne Racing entry with a slider through turns three and four on lap 15. For Brown, the World of Outlaws triumph snapped a 90-race Series drought for the Higginsville, Missouri, native, officially bumping his Knoxville Raceway victory total to 59.

One night prior, Brown finished third in the Brownells Big Guns Bash opener, pressuring for the lead in the closing circuits before a bobble on the cushion allowed Shark Racing’s Logan Schuchart to slip by; Brown started third on the evening grid.

“Man, what a weekend. I'm so proud of my Casey's/FVP team,” an elated Brian Brown expressed following his World of Outlaws victory. “We were able to qualify great both nights which allowed us to be in each of the dashes. We fought hard for a win on Friday, but came up a little short. But to trump that with a win on Saturday night is nothing short of special. We put ourselves in a great opportunity and we were able to capitalize.”

Brown’s 59 Knoxville Raceway victories ties him with Terry McCarl for third-most on the all-time win sheet; he owns three this season.

“I like where we are as a team,” Brown added. “Our Charlie Garrett engine was awesome all weekend and that’s a testament to his hard work and dedication. Danny Lasoski, Justin Lawer, Robert Brown, and Lathe Hicks have been busting their butts for me and I’m so glad I was able to get a win for them. We’d like to also dedicate our win to Lonny Parsons and Tony Ross, who each passed away recently. Lonny gave me my very first 410 ride at Knoxville and I won my first feature aboard his Casey’s No. 6. Tony was my first-ever sponsor with his company American Compressed Steel/MC Power and I am more than grateful to be able to know him and be a part of his racing family. Lonny and Tony both believed in me when they probably shouldn’t have, but I’m grateful they did.”

ON DECK: Tentatively, Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with the Border Battle at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minnesota, and Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, on Friday through Sunday, June 17-19. Sanctioned by NOSA (Northern Outlaw Sprint Association), the weekend will feature a doubleheader at Jackson Motorplex followed by a finale at Huset’s. If a driver can sweep all three events, a $10,000 bonus will be awarded.

Doran Racing’s Swanson Goes Down in Record Books

As First Winner of 500 Sprint Car Tour Points Race

With a Victory Friday at Plymouth Motor Speedway

PLYMOUTH, Ind., June 11 — Doran Racing and Kody Swanson will go down in the record books as the winners of the first points-paying race in the new 500 Sprint Car Tour presented by Auto Value Bumper to Bumper Parts Stores.

Although the Lucas Oil Little 500 at Anderson (Ind.) Speedway May 28 was the new series’ first race, Friday night’s 75-lap feature on Plymouth Motor Speedway’s three-eighths-mile asphalt oval was the first one that awarded points. Swanson, a native of Kingsburg, Calif., who now lives in Indianapolis, and Doran Racing, which is based in Lebanon, Ohio, made the most of it by winning both the pole and the main event with the team’s Henry Repeating Arms No. 44.

After the inversion, Swanson took the green flag in fourth place in the No. 44, which is powered by a Dan Binks-prepped Chevy engine.

He passed Tyler Roahrig on the first lap to move into third place behind polesitter Billy Wease and Derek Bischak.

It was like he turned on his afterburners on lap 10, however. That’s when he passed both Bischak and Wease to take the lead, setting the fastest lap of anyone in the race simultaneously with a time of 12.527 seconds. He had won the pole earlier in the day with a time of 12.386.

Swanson was able to quickly build up a lead of almost 1 second over Wease initially, but by lap 34 Wease was right behind Swanson’s blue No. 44.

Swanson had to survive two cautions that provided Wease with additional opportunities to pass. One waved on lap 45 after Taylor Ferns spun to a stop in the infield off Turn 2. Another occurred on lap 49 after Davey Hamilton Jr. spun to a stop in the inside of Turn 1. Swanson was up to the task on both restarts, however, and never relinquished his lead.

On lap 57 Roahrig passed Wease for second and he chased Swanson the rest of the way, but Swanson took the checkered flag with a whopping 3.340-second margin of victory. Wease finished third followed by Dakota Armstrong and Bobby Santos III. Nine of the 18 starters completed all 75 laps.

“I’m excited to get a win for this Doran Racing team, and for Henry USA, Glenn Farms and Dan Binks Engines,” Swanson said.

“Plymouth was a tricky little place, but our car seemed to be pretty good from the very first practice. Kevin and the team did a great job to keep making small adjustments, and made us better every time we hit the racetrack.

“I was glad to set fast time, but was a little nervous about starting fourth with the inversion, and having to pass some really strong cars. Our car was really good at the beginning of the race, and I felt like I needed to capitalize on the opportunity to get to the lead, and would have to see how it went from there.

“Late in the race I was worried that we were losing grip and sliding around, but it looks like that was happening to about everyone as all of our tires started to wear. This track had some characteristics of a few dirt tracks, so it was fun to move around, change my line, and try to find the best place to be throughout the race.

“God has blessed me with some great people in my life, and I’m thankful for everyone that is a part of this Doran Racing team. We’ve got great product partners and sponsors that support us, and a team and crew that give incredible effort to give us the chance to win, and I’m grateful to be part of this team!”

The race was streamed live on MAVTV Plus.

The team’s next race is another 500 Sprint Car Tour event today, Saturday, June 11, at Berlin Raceway in Marne, Mich.

Wayne County Speedway

ORRVILLE – Love him or hate him just don’t ignore him. Danny Dietrich has developed into one of the country’s best sprint car racers and will lead a strong contingent of drivers set to invade the O’Reilly Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway on Monday evening for leg four of the 40th edition of the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic.

Wayne County Speedway, the longest active track participating in the series’ long history, will host the Duffy Smith Memorial culminating with a 35-lap feature that will pay $6,000 to the winner. The popular 305 RaceSaver sprints will join the card with warmups slated for 6 p.m. and racing at 7.

Dietrich is the marquee attraction among this year’s field that has announced intentions of running the entire nine-day, nine-race series and has earned the distinction as one of America’s best. The Gettysburg, Pa. driver has recorded seven feature wins this season on the rough-and-tumble Central Pennsylvania circuit including wiring the field in Friday’s series-opener at Ohio’s Attica Raceway Park. Dietrich’s victory on Friday was his third in eight days which also includes a runner-up finish for good measure. Dietrich leads the point standings at both Williams Grove and Lincoln Speedways in Pennsylvania.

“I absolutely love coming to Ohio, the fans are great and it’s a change of pace that we look forward to,” Dietrich said. “We almost exclusively race on the big half-miles, but l love the bullrings here, especially Fremont and Sharon. We have such a big lead at both tracks back home that we can miss a few races and still be leading, but we have no intention of running for any track championship.”

Dietrich picked up a win last year during Speedweeks at Sharon and led nearly every lap of both events at Fremont and Portsmouth Raceway Park in claiming a second-place finish in the week-long series. “Double D’s” win Friday was his sixteenth career ASCoC triumph.

“We have no intentions of traveling full-time, we just want to win races and make money,” said the pilot of the Gary Kaufman Racing No. 48 entry based in Gettysburg. ” We can race here (Central Pa.) nearly 100 nights a year, but like l said, I love coming out here and competing. The one place we have not had a lot of success at is Wayne County. I just haven’t felt comfortable there yet, but hopefully we can change that on Monday.”

WCS is vastly different than other venues on the Speedweek lineup, with a paper-clip shaped layout that is more like his hometown track of Williams Grove than the tiny bullrings of a Waynesfield (leg seven) or a Limaland (leg eight).

“Wayne County is tough,” said Dietrich. “It’s fast around the top, but to pass you have to do it on the bottom then drift up and catch the cushion exactly right. It has not been one of my better tracks, yet.”

ASCoC Point leader Tyler Courtney, Justin Peck, Parker Price-Miller, Bill Balog, Cap Henry, Cory Eliason, and Hunter Schurenberg will lead the series regulars into WCS to battle “Orrville’s Historic Oval” weekly competitors Chris Myers, Danny Mumaw, Andrew Palker, Tyler Street, Henry Malcuit, Zach Ames, and a host of other regional racers.

EDDIE TAFOYA TACKLES VENTURA RACEWAY FOR FIRST TIME IN THREE YEARS

(June 10, 2022) For the first time in three years and only the second time in his young career, 2019 USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series “Rookie of The Year,” Eddie Tafoya Jr., will be plying his talents at the Ventura Raceway this Saturday night, June 11th. It will be the only time to see him on the famous track that is adjacent to the beach in 2022.

Tafoya, a second-generation sprint car driver who lives in Chino Hills, California, goes into Saturday’s race ranked fourth in the series championship standings. He moved into that spot two weeks ago when he finished eighth in the extremely competitive 71st running of the Salute To Indy at Perris Auto Speedway.

The last time Tafoya raced at Ventura, he was coming off his 2018 Perris Auto Speedway Young Guns Sprint Car Series championship and he was only a couple of months into his rookie year in USAC/CRA. He was just learning the ropes running with the big boys. The “Newby” qualified 14th fastest on his first night at the track. He came home sixth in his heat race and 20th in the main.

This Saturday when fans observe Tafoya for only his second time on the longtime track, they are going to see a completely different driver. He now has 2 ½ seasons of experience racing 410s and he is brimming with confidence. Last season, he started the main event 11 times in USAC/CRA only shows. He had one top-three finish, placed eighth in points, and had a finishing average of 9.9 in those races. This season, he has competed in all 10 USAC/CRA events and has two top-three finishes including a career-best second-place at Arizona’s Cocopah Speedway on January 29th. He is fourth in points and his average finish is 8.8.

After Saturday’s trek to “The Commotion By The Ocean,” Tafoya will get one weekend off before returning to action in the first Bubby Jones/Ray Sheetz Memorial at Perris on June 25th.

For fans attending Saturday’s race and who would like to pick up one of Tafoya’s great-looking shirts, see him in the pits after the final event. For those not going, but who would like to enhance their wardrobe with an Eddie Tafoya shirt, contact the young driver on his Instagram account at @eddietafoya51.

For fans of “Mr. Smooth” who would like to see him in person at Ventura, the track is located on the Ventura County Fairgrounds at 10 W. Harbor Boulevard (93001). The website is http://venturaraceway.com/ and the office phone number is (805) 648-RACE. Spectator gates will open at 3:00 p.m. and racing will begin at 5:30. Adult tickets are $25.00. Seniors 60 and over, and military with id get in for $22.00. Students with id get in for $18.00. Children five and under are free.

Tafoya and the #51T team would like to thank Specialty Fasteners, DRC Chassis, Ryder Racing Engines, Simpson Safety Products, Bell, Benic Enterprises, BR Motorsports, PSC Powder Coating, Magik Graphics, Gasper Transportation, Owen’s Insurance Services, and Weld Wheels for making the 2022 season possible.

If you or your company would like to be a part of the Specialty Fastener team’s 2022 season effort, please contact Eddie Tafoya Jr. via phone at (909) 393-3999 or by e-mail at teamtafoya@aol.com. He will be happy to talk to you and lay out the team’s 2022 plans.

Fans can follow Tafoya on Instagram @eddietafoya51. The same contact point can be used to purchase his great-looking shirts via mail.

Twin 20s At Port Royal Saturday

In what is believed to be a first in the 24-year history of the PA Sprint Series, the IMCA/RaceSaver sprinters will compete in twin 20-lap feature races Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway.

A strong field of cars is expected for what could be one of the most lucrative nights of racing this year. While only the first feature will award PASS and IMCA/RaceSaver points, a full feature purse will be paid out for both.

Normal qualifying procedures will be in effect for the first feature, then that race winner will draw to invert 8, 10, or 12 cars for the second event. Alternates will be added to the field if any of the first race starters are unable to run the second feature.

410 sprint cars and limited late models also will be featured on Port Royal’s Camera and Autograph Night.

This will be the fourth appearance this year for the PASS sprints at Port Royal, and previous winners Doug Dodson, Kenny Heffner, and Garrett Bard certainly have to be considered favorites. Heffner, also the current track points leader, has a first and two thirds this season, which Dodson and Bard each has a first, a fourth, and a fifth.

Defending points champ Bard also will be going for the PASS career victories lead. He comes into the races tied with Tyler Reeser for most career wins at 25. Bard also is the career wins leader at Port Royal among current PASS drivers with 8.

Ken Duke Jr., with three career Port wins and a runner-up finish this year, also should be considered a threat, and a great sentimental favorite would be hometown driver Mike Alleman. The only PASS regular to have run in the series first race in 1999, Alleman is off to perhaps the best start in his career and has finished in the top five in all three previous events.

Gates will open Saturday at 4:00 p.m., with racing scheduled to start at 7:00.

Adult general admission is $20 ($10 for students), and pit admission is $30.

Next weekend, PASS makes its only appearance of the season at Hagerstown Speedway in an event co-sanctioned with the Virginia and Laurel Highlands Sprint Series.

Henderson Looking Toward World of Outlaws Visit to Knoxville Following a Frustrating Weekend

Knoxville, IA – June 9, 2022

by Justin Snyder, Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Justin Henderson scored a weekend best eighth-place finish as part of a doubleheader at Knoxville Raceway last Saturday night. The top ten finish was a welcomed sight after a lap one wreck resulted in a 24th place finish during the first feature event of the night.

Plans to compete during the weekend at Huset’s Speedway fell through after a rainstorm hit the Speedway on Sunday and postponed the event.

“I really thought we had a car capable of winning in the first one and we probably would have been on the podium in feature two if not for that wreck,” said Henderson. “We didn’t get to do near as much racing as we’d hoped this weekend, but to be able to bring home a top ten in a banged up car lessons the sting a little bit.”

Henderson kicked off the night at Knoxville by timing in ninth quickest out of 35 cars in attendance in time trials with a fastest lap of 15.280 seconds. He then advanced two positions in a heat race to finish in second and earned a spot in the feature re-draw as a result.

After a lengthy rain delay at the track, Henderson lined up from the outside second row for the A-main and was feeling confident about his chances of ending up in victory lane. However, any thoughts of scoring his first win of the 2022 racing season came to a screeching halt in turn’s three and four on the opening circuit.

While running in the third position, the second place driver got turned around in front of him and left him with nowhere to go. He made heavy contact with the spinning car and ended up getting into the outside guardrail as a result. The team surveyed the damage and opted to get the car ready for the make-up feature instead of heading back out with a damaged racecar. As a result, he was credited with finishing 24th.

“When he started spinning, I wanted to get around him quickly to be able to keep going and I thought he was actually going to save it,” he said. “I just barely caught him and when it backed into the fence the car was in pretty rough shape. Right away our main focus was to be ready for the second feature and not lose too many points sitting in the trailer.”

The team made repairs to the car and Henderson was able to line up for the make-up feature event from the seventh position. As a result of the damage sustained in the first feature event, Henderson struggled with the handling of the car and he managed to bring the car home in one piece with an eighth-place finish. The top ten finish was the ninth of the season for Henderson aboard the Sandvig Motorsports No. 7.

“We got the car in good enough shape to get back on track, but it was a monster to handle,” said Henderson. “I fell back to 14th actually, but I tried something really unorthodox to make the car feel half decent and we actually managed to get going and ended up eighth.”

Next up for Henderson and Sandvig will be a pair of $10,000-to-win World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car starts on Friday and Saturday at Knoxville before they turn their attention to defending their points lead on Sunday at Huset’s Speedway.

With the added money on the line and the uptick in competition with the Outlaws in town, Henderson is hoping the speed they have had all season to start the night at Knoxville will pay off when it counts.

“We’re excited to compete with the Outlaws and we’ll be doing it with a new car after last weekend’s wreck,” said Henderson. “I hate to lose a car that we have had so much success in, but this one is good too and we’re ready to let her rip. We’ve been fast all season to start the night at Knoxville and the way the Outlaw format works you’ve got to be fast right off the trailer and I’m hopeful we can break through with a win or a podium and forget about last weekend.”

TKS Motorsports and Ryan Giles part ways; Tasker Phillips to fill seat for WoO Knoxville doubleheader

MITCHELLVILLE, Iowa (June 9, 2022) - Effective immediately, Mitchellville, Iowa-based TKS Motorsports and Grimes, Iowa’s Ryan Giles have parted ways, opening the seat temporarily for Pleasantville, Iowa’s Tasker Phillips. Phillips will make his TKS debut during the World of Outlaws sanctioned Brownells Big Guns Bash at Knoxville Raceway on Friday and Saturday, June 10-11.

Giles will leave TKS Motorsports with six Knoxville Raceway A-Main starts to his credit; the team is 18th in the championship standings.

“We want to thank Ryan for his time at TKS Motorsports, but I think it was best for everyone to take a step in a different direction,” Troy Renfro, owner of TKS Motorsports, stated. “We’re excited to welcome Tasker Phillips, who will jump in the seat for the World of Outlaws events Friday and Saturday. Hopefully we can come out swinging and put together two, great days.”

Aboard his own No. 7TAZ, Tasker Phillips is currently 13th in the Knoxville Raceway 410 track championship standings, earning two top-ten finishes in six A-Main appearances.

Giles will switch gears and continue his 2022 season with all focus aimed at the 360 sprint car division at Knoxville Raceway, aided by continued support from Albaugh LLC and Iowa Barnstormers.

Thursday, June 9, 2022

“I have been so blessed to work with so many great promoters at some of the best tracks in the country along with great series, and track workers, but most important the countless number of fans I have met and became lifelong friends with over the years,” said LeJeune.

LeJeune has flagged or worked at 69 different race tracks in 20 states over the past 40 years.

“I’m proud to have been a part of many great drivers’ lives early in their careers such as Craig Dollansky, Paul McMahan, Jason Meyers, Shane Stewart and Kraig Kinser. Plus so many of the local stars at all the local tracks in all the divisions,” added LeJeune.

LeJeune would like to thank John Bores for giving him the opportunity to be part of a great team at Attica Raceway Park for the past 16 years along with “Pork Chop” and all the staff that do such a great job each week.

BRODY ROA TO CONTEST SATURDAY’S USAC/CRA RACE AT VENTURA

(Cypress, CA, June 9, 2022) Popular Southern California Sprint car racer Brody Roa will be back in action this Saturday night, June 11th, when the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series makes its annual appearance at the Ventura Raceway. The Garden Grove, California-based driver enters the race just two weeks after his best USAC/CRA finish of 2022 when he placed third in the 71st annual salute to Indy at Perris Auto Speedway.

Roa’s last three appearances at Ventura in a 410 Sprint car have finished very well. In 2017 he was on the podium with a third-place finish. One year later in 2018, he won his only series event at the track affectionately known as “The Commotion By The Ocean.” The last time the Southern California sanctioning body appeared there three years ago, Roa turned in the 10th fastest qualifying time, won his heat, and went from 10th on the start to finish fifth in the main.

This Saturday’s race will be Roa’s 11th Sprint car start in 2022. It will also be his seventh nonwing race of the year. Of those seven starts, Roa has one second-place finish, one third, a fourth, two fifths, and two sixths. While he is not running for points and has only contested five of the series’ first 10 races, he has scored 334 points and is ranked 14th. That averages to 66.8 points per race. Pro rating those points by 10-races if he had competed in every race, he would have currently been second in the standings.

The tiny Ventura Oval has been a popular stop for Southern California sprint car fans since 1993. Located on the Ventura County fairgrounds, the track’s pit area is just a few feet away from the breaking waves of the Pacific Ocean. The location of the track makes it more than just a race night for the fans and the race teams as they spend much of the daytime before the race at the beach or the surrounding areas.

While the track has been a regular stop for the USAC/CRA series since its birth in 2004, Saturday’s race will be the first time the group has been there since 2019. The scheduled race for 2020 at the track was canceled due to COVID. With COVID still lingering in early 2021, the track was unable to open until after the scheduled series date.

Roa’s new shirts and hoodies will finally be available in June. For fans who would like to purchase one of the new hoodies, the pre-order deadline for them will be this Sunday, June 12th. T-Shirts will be available at all races beginning on June 25th at Perris. They are also available online along with other Brody Roa Performance items at the following link https://www.brodyroa.com/.

For fans who would like to see “The Pride of Garden Grove” in action on Saturday, the track is located on the Ventura County Fairgrounds at 10 W. Harbor Boulevard in Ventura (93001). The website is http://venturaraceway.com/ and the office phone number is (805) 648-RACE. Spectator gates will open at 3:00 p.m. and racing will begin at 5:30. Adult tickets are $25.00. Seniors 60 and over, and military with id get in for $22.00. Students with id get in for $18.00. Children five and under are free.

While Roa has two races on his schedule in the month of June, the BR Performance crew is busy getting ready for the annual “Indiana Sprint Week” from July 22nd through the 30th. The team has a couple of fresh cars and a couple of fresh engines for the journey and it is seeking some marketing sponsors for the trip. If you or your company would like to join up with this well-marketed friendly team, email Roa at mailto:brodyroa91@gmail.com. You can also call or text at 714-932-7994.

In 2022, Roa will race USAC/CRA, USAC National, and other select events, in his #91R BR Performance/HD Industries Eagle. He will also drive the #8M for May Motorsports in select USAC West Coast events. The 2019 USAC Southwest and 2017 USAC West Coast champion is always open to discussing other driving opportunities.

Roa and the team want to thank the following sponsors for making the 2022 season possible. HD Industries, Burris Racing, Sander Engineering, Inland Rigging, Caltrol, “Biker” Bruce Fischer, Competition Suspension, ALR Virtual Services, K-1 Race Gear, Molecule, Rod End Supply, Driven Racing Oil, Baldwin Filters, and NGK Spark Plugs. In addition, the veteran driver offers thanks to RDM Mechanics, Fastenal, Coopers Propane, Ten West Towing, Ten West Environmental, TJM Distribution, and Westco International for sponsoring the #8M he will pilot for Jayson May on 10 occasions in 2022.

If you or your company would like to jump on board and receive recognition as a team partner throughout the 2022 racing season, please give the two-time USAC champion racer a phone call or drop him a note at the contact information on the top of this release.

TRENT WILLIAMS, A DRIVER TO KEEP AN EYE ON SATURDAY AT VENTURA

(Hesperia, CA, June 9, 2022) When the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series makes its first stop at the Ventura Raceway in three years this Saturday night, fans would be well advised to keep an eye on racer Trent Williams. While only making a few appearances at the track in years gone by, he is no stranger to running up front and collecting some hardware at the beachside oval.

In the past, Williams has accepted the victory accolades at Ventura two times in the VRA Sprint Car Series. In addition to his prowess against the local group of racers, the last time he raced there in the USAC West Coast Sprint car series he finished fourth in the main event.

When the USAC/CRA series last visited Ventura Raceway on May 4th, 2019, 23 cars showed up. Williams turned in a fine qualifying lap of 13.097 which was six fastest on the night. After a fifth-place finish in his heat, he placed 12th in the main event

After missing the first three races of 2022 while getting his car ready, the Apple Valley California driver has competed in the series’ last seven main events in a row. In those seven races Williams has placed ninth five times, 10th once and 13th one time. While those finishes are consistent, the Cal State Fullerton graduate wants to move forward. His past prowess at Ventura could see him do so on Saturday.

Williams has two top 10 qualifying efforts thus far in 2022. He was 10th at Perris in April, and eighth at Bakersfield on the 14th of May. He has fared very well in his first seven heat races this year with six top-four finishes. Those finishes include a win in one of the 10-lappers at Hanford in March. His smooth style sees him arriving at Ventura in the 13th position in the championship standings.

For fans who would like to attend Saturday’s show at Ventura to see “T-Dub” in action, the track is located on the Ventura County Fairgrounds at 10 W. Harbor Boulevard (93001).

ALL STAR SPRINTS RETURN TO SHARON ON TUESDAY FOR 40TH ANNUAL OHIO SPEEDWEEK PLUS NON-WING RUSH SPRINTS 

June 9, 2022

By Mike Leone

(Hartford, OH)…The 40th annual Cometic Gasket Ohio Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires is set to make a stop at Sharon Speedway this Tuesday (June 14. The Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will feature the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars along with the non-wing Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars on BALA Management Night. Warm-ups are slated for approximately 6:15 p.m. followed by qualifying and racing. The early outlook calls for sunshine and temps in the low 80s.

Tuesday will mark the second of four appearances by the All Stars at Sharon in 2022 as Tony Stewart's Series will return for the “Sharon Nationals” September 2-3. Tuesday and the opening night of the “Sharon Nationals” will pay $6,000 to-win, while the finale will pay $12,000 to-win for the “Lou Blaney Memorial”. Tickets for all events are available at the following link: https://sharonspeedway.simpletix.com.

Ohio Speedweek will feature nine straight nights of racing with Sharon being stop number five on the grueling swing through the Buckeye State. A $12,000 points fund is on the line with $5,000 to the champion; $2,500 for second, $2,000 for third, $1,500 for fourth, and $1,000 for fifth. On behalf of Tony Stewart Store, a victory bonus will also be up for grabs during Ohio Sprint Speedweek: if a driver wins three or more events, an extra $1,000 will be awarded per win.

Also, the Mobile Bail Bounds "Bounty Hunter" Bonus will offer $1,000 if an eligible racer wins the feature or $150 to the highest eligible finisher. To be eligible, drivers must have competed in the June 4 Sharon show, compete primarily on the western Pa. and eastern Ohio circuit, and be a resident of those areas.

After a five-year absence, Ohio Speedweek returned to Sharon in 2010 as Tim Shaffer topped a 42-car field for the victory. In 2011, it was hometown favorite Dale Blaney winning the Sharon leg of Speedweek over a 45-car field. In 2012, in a stunning turn of events, local racer Brandon Matus came out victorious for his first career win with both the All Stars and at Sharon. Another strong field of 43 cars was on hand. The 2013 and 2014 events fell victim to Mother Nature.

In 2015, Dale Blaney won his second Speedweek race in three events at Sharon over another strong 42-car field. Bryan Clauson topped a 51-car field in 2016 winning his first career All Star race before tragically losing his life in a racing accident later in the summer. In 2017, Kyle Larson scored a popular win over a big field of 48 cars. Larson's bid for two straight Sharon Speedweek wins failed when Christopher Bell made a late race pass to win in 2018 with 48 cars were on hand. The 2019 Speedweek show was rained. In 2020, the "Lou Blaney Memorial" and Justin Snyder's "Salute to the Troops" events fell under Speedweek due to the COVID-19 pandemic as Cale Conley and Larson were victorious over the 39 and 38-car fields respectively. And last year, Danny Dietrich won his first career Sharon race topping a huge 53-car field.

Speedweek always brings a diverse field of competitors. Not only will the All Stars' base of 12 full-time competitors be in action, but also racers from all over the US and Australia in addition to the stars of central Pa., Ohio, and locally. The average car count since Speedweek returned to Sharon in 2010 has been 45.2! Sharon has only been able to complete two "410" Sprint Car events in 2022 due to Mother Nature. Cap Henry won the opener over the 41-car field of All Star Sprints, and last Saturday saw A.J. Flick end more than a three-year dry-spell by capturing the Western PA Speedweek event over the 33-car field.

The Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars will round out the two-division Sprint Car program on Tuesday night. The non-winged racers were finally able to hit the Hartford, Ohio oval last Saturday night as Ryan Fraley of nearby Brookfield won his first career Sprint Car race. A record 24 cars turned out for the fifth year division topping last year’s prior high car count of 23.

The RUSH Sprints have competed four times this year around the circuit heading into this weekend with three different winners. The only repeat winner is Gale Ruth, Jr. Teenager Blaze Myers has also been victorious. There have been 18 RUSH Sprint Car events completed all-time at Sharon with 10 different winners. Three-time Series Champion, Chad Ruhlman, leads the way with seven victories. Ruhlman is in search of his fourth $5,000 Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Championship in five years as he currently leads the points; however, is in search of his first win of 2022.

Fans can not only experience viewing from the frontstretch and backstretch grandstands, but also from the infield fan zone. The fan zone, which includes a concessions and restrooms, debuted in 2020 during the COVID-19 shortened season. Sharon is the only track in the area to have viewing from the unique infield perspective. There will be times throughout the night when fans can cross on the frontstretch back and forth.

Pit passes will go on sale at 3 p.m. with grandstands at 4. The All Stars drivers meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. Sprint Car motor heat is scheduled for approximately 6 p.m. followed by warmups, Sprint Car qualifying and racing.

Hagar Earns ASCS Mid-South Region Victory With Last-Lap Pass

Inside Line Promotions - WEST PLAINS, Mo. (June 9, 2022) - Derek Hagar captured his sixth feature triumph of the season in impressive fashion last Saturday after a change in the weekend's racing plan.

"The weather and another deciding factor is we are leading the ASCS Mid-South points so we decided to stay on top of that right now," he said in reference to choosing the ASCS regional event instead of the final races of the USCS Series Speedweek. "Fortunately, we made the right decision and came away with a win."

Hagar put himself in a good position in his ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Warrior Region heat race at Legit Speedway Park, where he advanced from fifth to second place. That earned a spot into the feature redraw and Hagar pulled the No. 1 to garner the pole position for the A Main.

"It was a soft night without a lot of cars," he said. "I think we started with 13 cars. One blew up in hot laps and then we lost two in a heat race.

"My car stumbled real bad on the start of the feature. Landon Crawley was able to stay with me into turns one and two and he beat me on the exit. He had a really good car. I didn't really have anything for him. As the race went on my car got a little better and I was able to get closer to him. I wasn't close enough to make anything happen, but when we got to traffic he zigged when he should have zagged. It gave me an opportunity to do a slide job in turns one and two. He pulled around the outside of me, but I had the preferred line. I stuck the bottom into turn three and was able to beat him coming off the corner."

Hagar's last-lap pass marked his third ASCS Mid-South Region victory in four races this season. He now owns a 106-point lead in the championship standings heading into another regional race this Friday at Crowleys Ridge Raceway in Paragould, Ark.

"Everything has been going our way," he said. "We have our stuff together with a brand new car and new motor. Things have been working out for us so we'll just try to keep this rolling."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 4 - Legit Speedway Park in West Plains, Mo. - Heat race: 2 (5); Feature: 1 (1).

12 races, 6 wins, 9 top fives, 10 top 10s, 10 top 15s, 11 top 20s

The night began with Gravel qualifying eighth quickest. He finished fourth in a heat race to line up on the inside of the sixth row for the main event. Gravel methodically advanced positions throughout the feature before closing with the fifth-place finish. His six spots gained were the second most.

The team looked to carry momentum into a home track of Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., on Sunday, but the Ace Ready Mix and Myrl & Roy's presents the World of Outlaws rained out and has been rescheduled for June 22.

THIRD NORCAL DOUBLEHEADER OF THE YEAR SET FOR WMR AT OCEAN AND ANTIOCH

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (June 9, 2022) – After a three-week break from a busy 30-race slate, the Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction drivers will duel in a Northern California doubleheader. WMR’s stock production-powered Midgets will race at Ocean Speedway during Friday’s Pombo/Sargent Classic in Watsonville before venturing back to the Contra Costa County Fairgrounds for the second Antioch Speedway stop of the year on Saturday.

The drivers in Western Midget Racing have been staying busy during the break. Oakley’s Bryant Bell spent time racing Micro Sprints and wrapped up his freshman year at Freedom High School. Bell will be driving the Toyota Walnut Creek-sponsored Zero Nine for car owner Tony Boscacci, with Antioch serving as his home track. His WMR championship winning teammate Blake Bower of Brentwood ran with the USAC Western Midgets at Ventura on May 21st, earning a third-place finish after starting on the pole. Bower has earned three wins this year in the No. 9 Orland Public Auto Auction Spike chassis.

2019 Ocean WMR champion David Prickett of Fresno is also the series’ all-time winningest driver. His down time was spent with a growing fleet of puppies at the Prickett compound. He climbs back aboard the No. 22Q Neverlift Motorsports entry this weekend.

The busiest driver on the circuit is Las Vegas’ Kyle Hawse, who has run all 11 races in the Sunland Wood Products No. 20 Triple X chassis. Hawse used the break to spend time with his family before the traveling picks back up for the series’ most improved driver, with an average finish of 4.4 this season.

Santa Cruz’ Logan Mitchell hits his home track at Ocean Speedway on Friday night, driving the no. 96x Mayer Iron and Design Boss Chassis. Mitchell is a multi-time winner in dirt clone karts and traveled to Arizona for pavement kart racing during the break along with getting in some training on iRacing.

Car owner Kevin Felkins has a busy weekend coming up with his daughter getting married. Leading his charge of drivers during the doubleheader will be Upper Lake’s Brody Petrie, who has five starts this year with a pair of second place finishes and a win at the series’ last stop on May 14th at Petaluma.

Friday’s action at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville will be joined by the NARC 410 Sprint Cars for the Pombo/Sargent Classic. Pit gates open at 2pm while grandstand gates open at 4:30pm. Hot laps are at 5:45pm with heat races to follow. Racing will be streamed live on FloRacing.com

Saturday’s event at Antioch Speedway includes the $2500-to-win Sonny Calkins Memorial for Wingless Sprints. Pit Gates open at 2pm while grandstand gates open at 4pm with hot laps beginning at 6pm. Racing will be streamed live on AntiochSpeedway.TV

Teams who travel from more than 240 miles to compete at either event will be eligible for a part of the $400 in road warrior money offered at each round this season.

Reinhardt Caps Solid Ohio Weekend with Top-10 at Atomic

Ohio Speedweek on Tap With 9 Races in 9 Days

Port Royal, PA – June 8, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Kyle Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91 were in Ohio last weekend with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions for their final chance to prepare for the upcoming Ohio Speedweek.

The Capitol Renegade team made the most of two important opportunities. Friday they added to their notes at Attica Raceway Park, a facility that has been challenging for Reinhardt and team. Saturday they made their first visit to Atomic Speedway, giving them valuable track time to start a notebook on the southern Ohio track.

June 3: Attica Raceway Park / Attica, OH

(38 cars, Qualifying 6th Group 2, Heat 5th, A-main 14th)

The always well-supported Attica Raceway Park drew a field of 38 cars for the $6,000 to win All Star event. The field was divided into four groups for qualifying per the All Star format.

Kyle Reinhardt’s qualifying effort garnered the 6th quickest lap in Group 2. With only the top five finishers from each 8-lap heat race transferring to the A-main, the Neptune City, NJ native would need to make improvements to avoid the B-main.

From outside row three, Reinhardt pursued a top five transfer spot from the drop of the green. Mid-race he slipped backwards to 7th but was able to regroup and find his rhythm. He recaptured 6th on lap five, then set his sights once again on a transfer spot. On the final circuit he worked his way by Scott Bogucki to grab 5th and made his way into the A-main.

Reinhardt started 17th in the 40-lap main event. From there, it would be an up and down run. By lap eight, he had navigated his way to 13th and appeared capable of more.

Over the next twenty laps, things went the wrong direction. Reinhardt found himself losing what he had gained and more. With ten laps remaining, he was mired in 18th.

During the closing laps Reinhardt bounced back, climbing to 14th by the time the checkered flag fell.

“We have a lot of work to do still at Attica.“, Reinhardt summarized.

June 4: George Fisher Memorial Freedom 40, Atomic Speedway / Chillicothe, OH

(38 cars, Qualifying 3rd Group 2/4th overall, Heat 2nd, A-main 7th)

Teams rolled nearly 3 hours due south to Atomic Speedway for Saturday’s $15,000 to win George Fisher Memorial race and once again, 38 teams signed in.

Kyle Reinhardt found himself in group 2 once again, but this time turned in an impressive time, good for 4th overall and 3rd quickest in his group. It was a much better start to the night.

The qualifying run provided Reinhardt with an outside front row starting spot for heat number two. He was not able to chase down Cole Duncan for the top spot but he held a firm grasp on 2nd throughout the 8-lap qualifying race.

Reinhardt took the green for the 40-lap A-main from the 9th position and quickly found himself in a little trouble. During the scramble for track position on the start, Reinhardt found himself stuck in the middle and losing spots. He slipped to 13th.

Reinhardt spent the next thirty laps trying to get out of the early hole, which was a task made even more difficult when the track surface took rubber. When a track takes rubber, the preferred line is narrow, passing is extremely difficult, and tire wear becomes a concern.

The race became a balance of gaining positions and making it to the end. The final ten laps saw Reinhardt make some passes in the rubber, but also benefit from attrition when a few others lost tires.

With two laps remaining, Reinhardt found himself in 7th and surging forward, taking advantage of a few restarts in the final four laps. He raced into 5th at the white flag, then claimed 4th off of turn two on the final circuit.

As Reinhardt entered turn three, he too fell to the tire wear circumstances. His right rear tire exploded and he managed to maintain enough control to cross the line 7th on the rim.

“It’s a top ten, so we’ll take it, but we don’t really know how good we would’ve been tonight. When a track takes rubber, you don’t race the track the way you would normally, so it’s hard to know how our car really was and get good notes.“, Reinhardt commented.

“Should’ve been better, could’ve been worse.”, he said, simplifying the team’s night into a single sentence.

Up Next

Reinhardt embarks on the grueling 9-day, 9-race Ohio Sprint Speedweek this Friday, June 10th. The opener will take place at Attica Raceway Park on Friday night, followed by two consecutive nights at Fremont Speedway. See the full schedule below.

Dominic Scelzi Bound for Ocean Speedway and Placerville Speedway This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - FRESNO, Calif. (June 8, 2022) - Dominic Scelzi returns to King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series competition this weekend with a 45-point lead in the championship standings.

Scelzi has recorded a podium result during each of the first eight series races this season and he's hopeful that streak continues on Friday at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif., during the 34th annual Pombo-Sargent Classic and Saturday at Placerville Speedway in Placerville, Calif., during the 31st annual Dave Bradway Jr. Race.

Scelzi has one series victory at each track, winning at Ocean Speedway in 2019 and at Placerville Speedway during the Dave Bradway Jr. Race last season.

"I feel pretty good," he said. "Historically, Watsonville has been one of my best tracks, but it's changed so much the last few years it's hard to know what to expect. This year we haven't been there so it will be interesting. Last year I think those were our two worst NARC runs with a DNF and an 11th so hopefully it goes smoother."

Despite a couple of rough results with the series last year, Scelzi recorded a pair of 360ci wins and five total podiums at Ocean Speedway in 2021.

"Placerville is a place I've historically struggled at until last year," he said. "We rolled in there and ran fourth in a 360 race and then went there and led every lap of the NARC race to win. Hopefully we can time in well both nights and have smooth, efficient nights at each track to continue our podium streak."

23 races, 5 wins, 15 top fives, 17 top 10s, 20 top 15s, 20 top 20s

Sanders Sixth at Chico, CA’s Summer Nationals

PETERSEN MEDIA- Climbing back aboard the potent Dale Miller Motorsports No. 4SA car on Friday night in Chico, CA, Justin Sanders would have his elbows up as he charged from 16th to tally a sixth-place finish at the Summer Nationals.

“With over 60 cars on hand every little thing mattered and with us being unable to sneak into the redraw, it made for a hard-fought feature event,” Justin Sanders said. “We used restarts to our advantage and put together a good run in the ‘A’.”

Friday night came to life with Sanders timing the Thompson’s Buick-GMC/Thompson’s Jeep-Ram/Dale Miller Septic Inc. No. 4SA ninth fastest in his qualifying group.

With heat races lined up directly from qualifying results, the Aromas, CA pilot gridded the field from ninth in his heat race and promptly put on a show. Working his way through the field, Sanders showed why he has been one of the winningest drivers in CA over the last few years as he was able to salvage his night and record a fourth-place finish.

Though it wasn’t good enough to garner a berth into the all-important redraw, it secured him a place in the 30-lap feature event where he would take the green flag from the 16th starting position.

An extremely aggressive start saw Sanders jump up into the 12th position before an early restart saw him make a couple of big time moves and quickly move into sixth.

Slipping back to seventh on a lap 11 restart, Sanders would hold down the position until he reclaimed sixth on the 17th lap.

Spending the last handful of laps jockeying for position, Sanders and Sean Becker would exchange the sixth position several times before Sanders was able to claim the position for good as he took the Friday night checkered flag with a sixth-place finish.

“Dale and I have been really good all year, and to come through that strong of a field like we did says a lot,” Sanders said. “Qualifying really hurt us, but I think we will be just fine for this coming event Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.”

The Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Thompson’s Buick-GMC, Thompson’s Jeep-Ram, Dale Miller Septic Inc., North County Plastering, 24 Hour Road Side Service, Anrak Corporation, Smith Titanium, Absolute Auto Glass, Frank’s Body Shop, Champion Brands Racing Oil, Rider Racing Engines, Walker Performance Filtration, Factory Kahne Shocks, Vortex Wings, TJ Forged Wheels, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., King Racing Products, and A.R.T. Speed Equipment for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 5, Wins- 2, Top-5’s-4, Top-10’s-5

ON TAP: The next event for Dale Miller Motorsports and Justin Sanders will be Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

 

 

Summer Nationals Top-10 for Mitchell Faccinto

PETERSEN MEDIA- Making a return trip to Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA on Friday night, Mitchell Faccinto and the Tarlton Motorsports team would pick up an eighth-place finish during Friday’s Summer Nationals opener before rain cancelled Saturday’s event.

“Friday night we were really good early in the night, but it just took me too long to get going in the feature,” Mitchell Faccinto said. “Before the rain came on Saturday, I think we were just as good, and the track was playing more info our favor.”

With 61 cars on hand for the Summer Nationals, Faccinto timed the Tarlton and Son Inc./EZ Haul/Executive Auto Sales backed No. 21 in fastest in his qualifying group which led to him starting on the pole of his heat race.

Losing the drag race into turns one and two when heat race action came to life. Faccinto would fall back into second. Hanging to the second position, Faccinto would punch his ticket into the feature event, and also solidify himself a spot in the nightly redraw.

Pulling the four, Faccinto would roll off the starting grid from the outside of the second row. When the green flag was displayed to the field, the Hanford, CA runner was up top making moves as he worked his way into second until the first stoppage of the race.

Slipping back to third when the race came back to life, another restart saw Faccinto fall back to fifth and then sixth. Struggling to work his way forward, Faccinto would find himself back in eight as he was able to make some traction and keep his mount inside the Top-10.

Though he could not get back any of the lost trac position, Faccinto would maintain as he capped Friday’s feature off with an eighth-place run.

“I was happy with how things went for the most part, and really think we had things going our way on Saturday,” Faccinto added. “Looking forward to getting the 410ci engine back in this weekend with some huge races coming up.”

Tarlton Motorsports would like to thank Tarlton and Son Inc., EZ Haul, Executive Auto Sales, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, System 1 Ignition, Vortex Wings, and BG Lubricants for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 18, Wins: 1, Top 5’s: 6, Top 10’s: 11.

ON TAP: Mitchell Faccinto will return to action on Friday night at Ocean Speedway and on Saturday at Placerville Speedway.

Three Race Swing in June Begins This Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway for the Patriot Sprint Tour

Contact: Paul Harkenrider PST Media 607-237-6372|paul@patriotsprinttour.com

(Selinsgrove, Pa) After finally getting the season off the ground a few weeks ago at Outlaw Speedway, the A-Verdi Storage Containers Patriot Platinum Tour will have its second event in 2022 at Selinsgrove Speedway this Saturday, June 11, for the 19th Annual Joe Whitcomb Memorial. This will be the seventh event where the Patriots sanction the race. The race will pay $3,071 to win and $300 to start, and points will go towards the $5,000 to win the championship.

It will be the first of three events in June, where the series will also make visits to Utica Rome on Friday, June 17, and Fonda Speedway on Saturday, June 25. In the season opener, it was a former champion, Davie Franek, picking up his first win of the season at Outlaw Speedway over PaulieColagiovanni and Dylan Westbrook. Rookie Dalton Rombaugh was fourth, followed by the reigning champion, Jordan Thomas completing the top five.

Before taking his talents on the road with PST, Franek, a former weekly runner at Selinsgrove, will lead several invaders into the Selinsgrove Speedway, including the 2022 Platinum driver class. That class includes Thomas, Kyle Drum, Dave Axton, Brett Wright, Johnny Smith, Denny Peebles, Steve Glover, Jonathan Preston, Jared Zimbardi, Joe Trenca, PaulieColagiovanni, and rookie Jordan Hutton.

Although Selinsgrove does not race 360 Sprint Cars weekly, there are still a ton of heavy hitters that bring a lot of speed to the track, including Jason Shultz, Ryan Kissinger, Mark Smith, and Derek Locke.

The track will also be racing in memory of Joe Whitcomb, a dedicated racer at Selinsgrove since 2001 in the 358 Sprint Car division. Unfortunately, Whitcomb passed away in 2003, but his legacy remains with this race every year. Last season, Ryan Taylor bested the field and became the ninth different event winner.

Past winners include: include Nate Snyder(2004, 2017); Kevin Nagy (2005); Blane Heimbach (2006, 2007, 2008, 2020); Pat Cannon (2009, 2010, 2013); TJ Stutts (2011, 2012, 2014, 2015); Davie Franek (2016); Chad Layton (2018); and Jason Shultz (2019).

The Whitcomb memorial is also special with the unique format it presents for the 360 drivers where time trials set the running order. Time trial orders are decided via an open draw before the PST driver's meeting. Each car will get one lap timed, and the 12 fastest drivers will be inverted, meaning the quickest driver will start fourth in heat one, the second-fastest will start fourth in heat two, and so on.

The heats will be eight laps in distance, and the top six will qualify and line straight up based on finishing order by heat race finishes. The fastest driver in time trials will draw a 3, 6, or 9, which will set the running order for the A-Main, which will be 25 laps in the distance. Drivers who finish outside the top six in their heat races will start based on finishing position during qualifying.

Technical Information for Saturday's race on www.patriotsprinttour.com under the rules bulletin.

Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial up next for SCCT at Placerville Speedway Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…The Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial is routinely one of the largest single night showcases of the season in Northern California and this Saturday night will see the 31st edition occur at Placerville Speedway.

The massive event marks the second occasion the Bradway Memorial takes place at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds quarter-mile. It is also the second consecutive season for the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards to be a part of it.

This much-anticipated contest at Placerville Speedway will see the SCCT 360s compete alongside the NARC Fujitsu 410 Sprint Car Series, which means the best of the best in California Winged Sprint Car racing is set to be on hand.

The event originally began at Silver Dollar Speedway in 1992 to honor the late Dave Bradway Jr., who lost his life in a Sprint Car crash at Skagit Speedway’s Dirt Cup in 1987. Bradway was a driver destined for stardom in Sprint Car racing and the event held in his memory has become a cornerstone for Northern California.

“We are certainly excited about this Saturday’s Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial at Placerville Speedway,” commented track Promoter Scott Russell. “If you’re a Winged Sprint Car enthusiast in California this is the place to be and if you’ve never been to Placerville, we encourage everyone to come check it out. Our entire staff is honored to host the Bradway for the second straight year.”

The Sprint Car Challenge Tour is coming off a frustrating night of weather last Saturday in Chico, where Mother Nature forced a postponement after the second C-main. The Tyler Wolf Memorial as previously announced will be made up, starting from scratch, on Thursday September 29th as part of Fall Nationals weekend at Silver Dollar Speedway.

Fremont’s Shane Golobic brings the SCCT point lead into Saturday’s Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial. The former World of Outlaws winner at Placerville Speedway has claimed a pair of Sprint Car Challenge Tour triumphs thus far in 2022 and is always a favorite on the red clay.

Eight-time Placerville champion Andy Forsberg goes into Saturday ranking second in the standings and hopes to pick up his first SCCT win of the season. Reigning Sprint Car Challenge Tour titlist Ryan Robinson, last season’s Rookie of the Year Isaiah Vasquez and Placerville’s Shane Hopkins complete the top-five in points with six races down.

Rounding out the top-10 in the SCCT standings are Modesto’s Tony Gomes, Roseville’s Sean Becker, Garth Moore Insurance Rookie of the Year contender Landon Brooks, Hanford’s DJ Netto and Lemoore youngster Gauge Garcia.

Adult tickets this Saturday June 11th cost $40 while seniors 62+, military and juniors 12-17 will be $35. Kids 6-11 are $20, with five and under are free. Purchase tickets online at https://www.eventsprout.com/event/king-of-the-west or at the gate on race day.

Pit passes can be purchased at the pit gate or on Pit Pay to take advantage of the expanded seating area on the hill.

The pit gate will open at noon, with the front grandstand gate opening at 3pm. Happy Hour is offered from 4-6pm in the grandstands featuring live music along with discounted Coors Light and Coors Original at the beer booth. The pit meeting will be held at 4:30pm with cars on track at 5:15. Hot laps, qualifying and racing will follow.

Pirtek Renegade traditional sprints of the UMSS

New Richmond, WI, June 4, 2022 The Pirtek Renegade traditional sprints of the UMSS returned to Cedar Lake on Saturday for their third visit of the season. 22 teams checked in to do battle in a pair of qualifying heat races. Jake Kouba picked up the win in Pirtek heat race one while last night’s winner Cam Schafer snared checkers in RTS podcast heat race two. Both winners came from the outside of row three to amass a whopping 153 passing points. Jeremy Kerzman made his 2022 Pirtek Renegades debut and redrew the pole position for the 20-lap main event, starting inside of Jake Kouba. Kerzman shot to the point as the field fanned out behind him. Eighth starting Schafer was charging hard and quickly broke into the top five, jockeying for position in a group that included Jon Lewerer, Blake Anderson, Brad Peterson and Nick DaRonco. A three-car crash on lap eleven brought out the red flag, erasing the 10 car length advantage Kerzman had built up over Jake Kouba and Schafer. The last nine laps clicked off caution free as Kerzman wrapped up his season debut in victory lane. Kouba, Schafer, DaRonco and Lewerer completed the rest of the top five. The Pirtek Renegades return to action Saturday, when the winged teams come back to their home track of Cedar Lake. The following weekend, June 18 and 19, both the wings and traditionals take in a central Minnesota swing at Ogilvie Raceway and Granite City Speedway. More information on upcoming events for the Pirtek Renegades, as well as links to other Renegades series, can be found at www.umsprints.com, or on facebook. RESULTS: Feature, 20-laps. 1.

Donny Schatz Ready for 2022 Eldora Million® 10-Time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Champion Will Compete In Second Historical Million Dollar Dirt Late Model Race at Eldora Speedway

INDIANAPOLIS (June 7, 2022) – 10-Time World of Outlaws (WoO) NOS Energy Sprint Car Series champion Donny Schatz will return to the historical Eldora Speedway this week, but it won’t be in his winged sprint car. Instead, Schatz will return to dirt late model racing as he’ll take a run at The Eldora Million®, one of the most legendary events in the history of the hallowed high-banked half-mile clay oval.

For just the second time ever – on Thurs., June 9, 2022 – the superstars of Dirt Late Model racing will compete for a winner’s purse of $1 million dollars. The Eldora Million® will feature a full-program of heat races, last chance showdowns, and culminate with the $1,002,022-to-win Championship Feature. The initial seeding for Thursday’s heat races will be set on Wed., June 8, via a program of tournament-style preliminary features.

Schatz, who will pilot his family-owned No. 15 Rocket Chassis entry welcomes partners Carquest, Absolute Automation, SidebySideStuff.com and DKW Transport for the high-stakes, record-high paying Eldora Million®.

“I remember the first time The Eldora Million® was held in 2001 and what major event it was,” said Schatz. “To be able to take part in the second running of the event is something I never thought I’d have the chance to do while I’m still a full-time sprint car driver. To have this opportunity come about is something I’m really looking forward to taking part in this week.

“I’m also proud to have Carquest, Absolute Automation, Side by Side Stuff and DKW Transport come along for this once in a lifetime dirt racing opportunity. Junior Word and the Carquest team are huge supporters of our racing program at Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing and they’re always quick to support my outside racing events as well. Jason Barati (Absolute Automation) and Shawn Loken (DKW Transport) have roots in short-track racing and it’s a privilege to have them as partners for such a special event like The Eldora Million®.

“I’m also excited to welcome SidebySideStuff.com into the world of dirt late model racing. The Million® is a huge stage in which to showcase their products to a consumer base that is a perfect fit. We’re looking forward to helping them get their first taste of the sport.”

Schatz made his dirt late model debut at Eldora Speedway on June 6, 2012, in the eighth annual Prelude to The Dream event, finishing fourth. His appearance in the star-studded race sparked a major interest in dirt late model racing and Schatz has competed in his familiar No. 15 Ford Performance powered entry whenever his full-time WoO schedule will allow for the last decade. He has collected a total of 13 dirt late model feature wins to date, 11 of which came during Northern Late Model Racing Association (NLRA) competition.

All four days of action from the 28th Dirt Late Model Dream® Week, including The Eldora Million® on Thurs., June 9 and the 28th Dirt Late Model Dream® on Sat., June 11, will be available worldwide exclusively on FloRacing, Eldora’s official livestream partner.

 

 

VETERAN BLOOM SET TO RETURN TO MUST SEE RACING COMPETITION THIS WEEKEND

June 7, 2022 – Veteran Bangor, Michigan driver Jeff Bloom is set to return to Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro competition this Friday night June 10 when the series visits Birch Run Speedway in Birch Run, Michigan. It will be the first time the series has competed at Birch Run Speedway since 2019.

Bloom, a 2013 inductee to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame, will be returning to MSR competition after skipping the American Speed U.S. Nationals at Kalamazoo Speedway over Memorial Day Weekend. Bloom was absent from the event to focus on Little 500 activities, where he has picked up three victories in the 500-lap classic over the years.

Bloom now returns home to the series he has competed with full-time since its inception in 2010. Bloom scored a preliminary night feature event at the Indianapolis Speedrome last June to give him the distinction of having won feature events in seven different decades, a truly remarkable feat. The seventy -two-year old veteran driver is a fan favorite wherever he goes and has a huge following.

Bloom got off to a rough start when the series opened their 2022 season at South Boston Speedway in South Boston, Virginia. Bloom experienced engine issues on opening night when it was discovered he had a blown head gasket. Bloom indicated last Friday afternoon that he was in the process of repairing the engine. Bloom hasn’t been able to tend to the ailing engine until now due to a hectic May. He expects to be ready in time for this weekend’s race, but it will go right down to the wire.

Bloom will be one of several drivers who have captured an MSR feature victory expected to compete this Friday night. For more info on Must See Racing please visit www.mstseeracing.com.

 

 

Mallett Sweeps USCS Series Speedweek Finale at Jackson Motor Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BYRAM, Miss. (June 7, 2022) - Jordon Mallett earned his first feature victory of the season in style last Saturday when he swept the USCS Series Speedweek finale at Jackson Motor Speedway.

"We were fastest in hot laps and then won the heat, won the dash and won the feature," he said. "It couldn't have been a more solid night. We were in our own element just doing our job. It was nice to get that first win behind us and to have the car where I've been searching to have it all of this year.

"It was just the perfect storm of a night. We got the car where we were a lot more happy with it the previous night at Hattiesburg. I went through it on Saturday to where I had it more what I was used to last year."

Mallett kicked off the final weekend of Speedweek on Friday at Hattiesburg Speedway in Hattiesburg, Miss., after the previous night at North Alabama Speedway in Tuscumbia, Ala., rained out. He advanced from third to second place in a heat race and from fourth to third place in the dash.

"I felt like we were pretty good," he said. "I was still working on the race car a lot. I have been all of the beginning of the season to get it balanced where we want to be. I felt okay in the heat race. We made some big changes for the dash and it really seemed to like that. I went more in that direction for the feature. We had a good car and I ran second for most of the race. As it progressed and the track progressed I got too free and slipped back to third. We hung around for a podium. We were close, just a little too free."

Mallett's third-place result in the A Main was his second podium performance of the season until the victory on Saturday when Mallett led every lap of his heat race, the dash and the main event.

"Everything is back to happy," he said. "I feel good in the car and it was doing what I wanted it to do. You're always chasing something. We had a good car last year and this year I wanted to see if we could make it even better. All year we were chasing the short run or the long run. It seemed I got it where it was happy with me and I was happy with it on Saturday."

Mallett finished third in the USCS Series Speedweek championship standings - only six points out of tying for the title.

He plans on racing this Friday at Crowley's Ridge Raceway in Paragould, Ark., with the ASCS Mid-South Region and Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.

QUICK RESULTS -

June 3 - Hattiesburg Speedway in Hattiesburg, Miss. - Heat race: 2 (3); Dash: 3 (4); Feature: 3 (3).

June 4 - Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram, Miss. - Heat race: 1 (2); Dash: 1 (1); Feature: 1 (1).

Gas City Hosts USACIndiana Midget Week And Gas City Sprints Doubleheader This Friday Night

GAS CITY, Ind., June 7 —This Friday night Gas City I-69 Speedway hosts one of the most anticipated races of its season with its leg of the 18th annual Indiana Midget Week for the USAC NOS Energy Drink national midget series. Adding more excitement to the night will be the addition of non-wing sprint cars to make an open-wheel doubleheader.

Michael “Buddy” Kofoid of Penngrove, Calif., is the early favorite, as at press time he had won two of the three completed Indiana Midget Week features. He is also the defending winner of this event on Gas City’s quarter-mile dirt oval.Approximately 30 other midget drivers from around the country will vie to be the one who pulls into victory lane after the checkered fliesat the conclusion of the 30-lap midget feature Friday night.

With a USAC NOS Energy Drink national midget feature victory for Kofoid on June 2 prior to Indiana Midget Week, he became the first driver to win four of the division’s races in a row since Kyle Larson in 2012-2013.

Only seven previous drivers in the 67-year history of USAC national midget racing have strung together four feature victories in a row: Shorty Templeman (1956), Mel Kenyon (1969), Rich Vogler (twice, in 1979 and 1988), Kevin Olson (1987), Billy Boat (1995-1996), Dave Darland (2003) and Larson (2012-2013). Kenyon signed autographs in Gas City’s new “Rumble in Fort Wayne” Autograph Zone last Friday night. Darland has two top-three finishes in non-wing sprint car features at Gas City already this year, and Larsonwon Gas City’s Indiana Midget Week event in both 2013 and 2020. After taking the checkered flag in 2013, Larson accidentally tipped his midget over onto its side while doing donuts in celebration. He climbed out, scrambled up onto the overturned car, and waved to the crowd enthusiastically. He didn’t have as memorable a victory lane celebration in 2020, but he came from 14th to win the feature that night. Who finished second? Kofoid.

Kofoid leads the Indiana Midget Week point standings at press time followed by Justin Grant (Avon, Ind. by way of Ion, Calif.); Thomas Meseraull (Waveland, Ind., by way of San Jose, Calif.); Kyle Cummins (Princeton, Ind.); Mitchel Moles (Raisin City, Calif.); Bryant Wiedeman (Colby, Kan.); Kaylee Bryson (Muskogee, Okla.); Taylor Reimer (Bixby, Okla.); Jacob Denney (Galloway, Ohio) and Jade Avedisian (Clovis, Calif.).

It’s possible that the winner on Friday night at Gas City is the first woman to win a USAC national midget feature. Several women are expected to enter, including Bryson, who advanced 18 positions from her 22nd-place starting position to finish fourth in round three of Indiana Midget Week last Sunday night in Haubstadt, Ind.

Another driver to never count out is Shane Cottle of Kansas, Ill., a multi-time Gas City sprint car track champion and the 2005 and 2006 Indiana Midget Week titlist. He may enter both divisions, and he knows Gas City like the back of his hand. He finished second in the sprint car feature at Gas City last Friday night.

If Kofoid has garnered most of the headlines in the midgets recently, who will win the 25-lap non-wing sprint car feature Friday night at Gas City is anyone’s guess. In the three races held so far this year there have been three different winners: Tye Mihocko of Phoenix, Ariz.; Meseraull, and defending track champion Scotty Weir of Marion, Ind.

Going into Friday’s races Weir leads the current track sprint car point standings followed by Colten Cottle of Kansas, Ill. (Shane’s nephew); Matt Goodnight of Muncie, Ind.; KorbynHayslett of Troy, Ohio and Kyle Shipley of Lebanon, Ind.

The pits will open at 3 p.m. Friday night and the grandstands will open at 5 p.m. Hot laps are scheduled for 6:30 p.m.

Tickets and pit passes will be sold at the gate. General admission tickets are $30, student tickets are $10, and kids 12 and under are free. A pit pass costs $35.

Gas City I-69 Speedway is located on State Road 22, approximately a half-mile west of exit 259 of Interstate 69, about halfway between Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, Ind.

For the complete 2022 schedule and more information see the track’s website at gascityI69Speedway.com and also follow its social media outlets. The track is on Twitter (@GasCitySpeedway), Instagram (@GasCitySpeedway) and Facebook (GasCitySpeedwayOnTheGas).

 

 

Amantea Battles for Podium at Williams Grove Before Race-Ending Crash

Inside Line Promotions - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (June 7, 2022) - Joey Amantea was in contention for a career-best outing at Williams Grove Speedway last Friday before his night ended early.

Amantea advanced from sixth to third place in a Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars Series heat race to garner the fifth starting position in the Bill Gallagher Memorial main event.

"We were decent in hot laps and moved forward in the heat race," he said. "Come feature-time we fell to sixth on the start with the track being top dominant. I made my way up to third and was tracking down second. We were really fast and I felt we had a winning car. We threw a slider for second and the caution came out. On the restart it was good through turns one and two, but the second-place car unexpectedly went to the top. I checked up and hopped the curb, which cost us three spots. On the next lap a car behind us ran into us going into turn three. I ended up landing in the grass and then flipped back onto the guardrail. It completely destroyed the race car."

The contact on the track resulted in a violent flip for Amantea, who was credited with a 15th-place result.

It also forced him to miss the series race on Saturday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. Amantea continues to sit fourth in the championship standings.

A pair of micro sprint races on Wednesday and Sunday at Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa., fill this week's schedule.

"It'll be good to get back to Action Track USA, where we rained out last week," Amantea said. "Hopefully we can compete for a win there again like the last time."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 3 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Heat race: 3 (6); Feature: 15 (5).

SEASON STATS -

11 races, 0 wins, 5 top fives, 7 top 10s, 9 top 15s, 9 top 20s

Joel Myers Jr Hard Charges at Summer Nationals

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting back to racing in the ‘Golden State’ over the weekend, Joel Myers Jr and the Vertullo Motorsports battled back from the ‘B’ Main and charged from 22nd to earn a 10th place finish at Silver Dollar Speedway’s Summer Nationals.

“We made a couple of changes to our program, and I am really excited to have Willie Kahne on board,” Joel Myers Jr said. “We changed a few things all night long to try and find a good balance on our car and I really think we made some good progress.”

With 61 cars on hand, Myers Jr timed the Starr Property Management /Morrison Concrete/Hi-Plains Building Division backed no. 83v mount in seventh fastest in his qualifying group.

Gridding the field form seventh in his heat race, Myers Jr would pocket a sixth-place finish which forced him into the ‘B’ Main. Lining up mid-pack, Myers Jr had some ground to make up with just four transfer positions up for grabs into the 30-lap feature event.

Making some positive changes for the ‘B’, the Sebastopol, CA youngster had his elbows up as he went to work on the famed ¼ mile bullring. Working his way through the field, Myers Jr was able to keep his night alive as he worked his way up to a second-place finish in the semi.

Continuing to tune on the Vertullo Motorsports entry, ‘Jr’ then took the green flag for the 30-lap feature from the 22nd starting position. With early stoppages leading to double-file restarts, Myers Jr would pick up track position with each drop of the green flag.

Having some good fortune on lap 19, ‘Jr’ jumped into 11th, and then made his way into the Top-10 with seven laps remaining in the feature.

Fighting for more, Myers Jr would be unable to continue his charge as he capped the night off with a hard-fought 10th place finish.

“We got better all night on Friday, and Saturday got off to a really good start before the race got rained out,” Myers Jr said. “Again, big thanks to Willie for coming on board, and to Cody and Rich for working hard all night long on Friday and Saturday.”

Joel Myers Jr Racing would like to thank Starr Property Management, Morrison Concrete, Hi-Plains Building Division, PitStopUSA, G&N Construction, System 1 Ignition, Dirt Dudes, Weld, Smith Ti, Y2K Gaming, Shark Racing Engines, Lucas Oil, Vaider, L Delo Designs, Walker Performance Filtration, ShopRico.Com, Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Kaeding Performance, Ogio, All About Fire Protection, and Triple X Race Co. for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 24, Wins-0, Top-5’s- 5, Top-10’s-9

ON TAP: Myers Jr and Vertullo Motorsports will be at Ocean Speedway on Friday night and Placerville Speedway on Saturday.

 

 

Dover Stymied by Mechanical Problem While Leading at I-80 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (June 7, 2022) - Jack Dover nearly swept the night last Friday at I-80 Speedway before mechanical woes arrived in the closing laps.

Dover hustled from fifth to win a heat race and he nearly bested that performance after driving from the sixth starting position into the lead in the A Main.

"I got the lead on the first lap," he said. "I was running the bottom and Jason Martin passed me. I moved up and about four laps after following him a yellow came out. On the restart I slid him in turns three and four and led for about the next 10 laps. We broke a rod with about six laps to go while leading, but I got lucky it isn't bad."

Dover was credited with a 12th-place result.

"We were really, really good," he said. "They were pushing us through the features. We couldn't find the stagger we wanted so we threw something on there. The tires weren't cut so I was nervous about that. To go out and do what we did before the DNF was pretty good."

Dover plans to return to action this Sunday at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., where a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event last Sunday was postponed until June 22. That sets up four straight nights of World of Outlaws action at the track that week.

The previous weekend also showcases a tripleheader with two races at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., followed by a night at Huset's Speedway during The Battle Border.

"This Sunday is our last weekly race before a couple of big weeks of 410 racing," Dover said. "Qualifying is critical so that's an area where we can improve. Getting the right gear in the car and turning consistent laps is the key to success."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 3 - I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. - Heat race: 1 (5); Feature: 12 (6).

Zach Newlin and BK Motorsports Working on the Right Recipe
 

Port Royal and Path Valley Provide Good Weekend of Notes

Port Royal, PA – June 7, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit: Garry Ferguson / WRT Speedwerx / Elite Racing Imagery

Losing a car is certainly not a setback any team wants to go through, but it is especially hard on a brand new team trying to establish itself, learn and build a notebook.

It took a lot of hard work on a short holiday week, but BK Motorsports and Zach Newlin rebounded from a hard crash on June 29th to be ready for action again at Port Royal Speedway just six days later.

June 4: Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

(17 cars, Heat 7th, A-main 11th)

Zach Newlin lined up outside row number two for the first of two 8-lap heats Saturday afternoon at ‘The Speed Palace’. The Millerstown, PA native lost a couple spots on the opening lap and wasn’t able to recapture them. With all cars transferring to the A-main, there was no reason to overdrive the new car. It was a good opportunity for Newlin to shake it down and figure out what adjustments they could make for the A-main. He crossed the line in 7th.

During the opening laps of the 25-lap main event, Newlin moved forward from his 12th starting spot into 11th and began looking for a way to crack the top ten. As some teams surged toward the front and others faded through the field, Newlin held serve around 12th.

Newlin was moving around, trying the high side, the middle and the low line, searching for a combination that made the car happy. Drivers feel how the car responds and the crew sees the attitude of the car from their vantage point. All of that information lands in the team’s notebook, helping them make informed and improved decisions at the next race.

Newlin moved up a spot to 11th as the race entered the final 10 laps, but he wasn’t able to break into the top ten before the checkered flag fell. The goal for the night was to take what the car would give, get seat time, and continue building a notebook, so the 11th place finish was certainly a positive result.

A team cannot improve sitting at the shop, so with all the boxes checked on Saturday night, Newlin and the BK Motorsports team headed for Path Valley Speedway on Sunday with the Grove Financial & Associates / Dillman Hauling / Centre Roofing & Contracting / Mattas Motorsports / Victory Auto / Ron’s RV Sales / The Roast Post / FIT Transportation / Kirby Kitner Excavating / Christine Booher, Realtor / T&M Homebuilders / Strange Oval / Walker Performance Filtration / Newlin Bar Service No.77.

June 5: Path Valley Speedway / Spring Run, PA

(19 cars, Qualifying 9th, Heat 4th, A-main 15th)

Sunday’s return of the 410 sprint cars to Path Valley Speedway brought 19 teams to compete, including the BK Motorsports No.77 piloted by Zach Newlin.

Newlin registered the 9th quickest qualifying lap, matching Mark Smith’s 8th best lap of 10.792 seconds, but losing the tiebreaker to Smith.

Newlin was on the inside of the second row for the green flag of the third and final heat race of the day. He went on to finish 4th in his first career 410 sprint car race on a quarter-mile track.

Zach Daddy took the green flag for the 40-lap feature from the 12th position. In a relatively uneventful, workmanlike A-main, Newlin logged a 15th place finish.

“I feel like I wasn’t aggressive enough, but right now we’re trying to make laps and learn. We need to race to improve. If we tear up equipment, we can’t do that. We’re not going to race defensively but we are going to race smart.”, Newlin explained.

“We’ve definitely got some things to figure out with this car, but my comfort level is getting better. This car has some differences from the last one I raced, so we’re all adjusting together. It was good to get a couple nights where we could make a lot of laps and learn how it responds to adjustments. It’ll take some time, but the ingredients are there and we will figure out the right recipe.”

Up Next

Friday night June 10th, Zach Newlin will be in the seat of the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m for the 358 sprint car Summer Series race at Williams Grove Speedway.

The following night, Newlin will be back at Port Royal Speedway in the BK Motorsports No.77 410 sprint car on Camera and Autograph Night. The pits will be open to all ticketholders for one hour prior to the evening’s action. Stop by for a photo with Zach, say hello, and get an autograph!

Halligan & Risser Motorsports Score First Win of 2022 at The Speed Palace
Team Moves Into Second in Championship Standings

Port Royal, PA – June 6, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Fresh off a podium and a top-5 last weekend, Jeff Halligan and the Risser Motorsports team unloaded their No.45 at Port Royal Speedway this past Saturday night looking to maintain that momentum, and hopefully check the one box they had not yet this season: park it in victory lane.

Mission accomplished on both objectives.

June 4: Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

(17 cars, Heat 2nd, A-main 1st)

The Risser Motorsports / TheTreeCenter.com / Victory Auto of Lewistown / EMM Sales & Service / Jake’s Golf Carts entry was among seventeen 410 sprint cars pit-side June 4th at ‘The Speed Palace’. Heats lineups for the show were set by pill draw and the feature lineup would be set using the handicapping format based on the season championship point standings.

Halligan was slated to start 7th in the first 8-lap heat race, however he rolled to the green in 6th after one competitor chose to start at the rear of the field.

When the green flag dropped, Halligan served notice immediately that he was up on the wheel. He stormed into 2nd by the completion of lap one and set his sights on leader Curt Stroup. He wasn’t able to track down the top spot and came home 2nd.

The handicapping format set the top four in the season point standings like this to start the 25-lap A-main: Mike Wagner (4th in points) lined up 5th, Halligan (3rd in points) lined up 6th, Lucas Wolfe (2nd in points) lined up 7th and Logan Wagner (1st in points) lined up 8th.

On numerous occasions this season, Halligan has found himself holding his ground in the early going, then able to come on strong late in a race to gain positions. He has noted that it’s good to be fast late rather than ‘fall off’, but he and the team have been working to get out of the gate a bit quicker as well.

He was able to accomplish that in the heat race, then showed it was no fluke by moving into 4th by lap one, 3rd by lap two and 2nd by lap five in the feature event. The team has clearly made progress on that front as well. Another box checked.

Halligan pursued leader Justin Whittal for the next ten circuits, drawing close on a couple occasions but quite not close enough to take away the top spot. As the race moved toward the final chapter, fans expected Halligan’s typical late-race push to come and provide an exciting close, but it wasn’t necessary. Justin Whittall’s right rear tire exploded on the backstretch with ten laps remaining.

Halligan led the field back to the green for the final ten laps with Mike Walter II, Dylan Cisney, Logan Wager and Lucas Wolfe in tow. He was up to the challenge, pulling away by several car lengths.

A final caution flag appeared with one lap remaining, setting up another opportunity for someone to challenge Halligan. Logan Wagner moved into second on that restart but the Ephrata, PA wheelman was able to maintain his lead and capture the victory by 0.879 seconds.

“The yellow is last thing you want to see coming through three and four to the checkered, but I wasn’t too worried. I knew we were pretty good. I just wanted to get this thing over with.”, Halligan said with a relieved grin in victory lane.

With the win now added to his total, Halligan sits second in the season-long championship point standings, 185 markers behind leader Logan Wagner and 20 ahead of third place Lucas Wolfe.

“We’ve been fast all year, but everybody talks about Logan Wagner and Anthony Macri. We’ve progressively gotten better. We put a little better motor in last week and it’s making the car drive a lot better.”, Halligan shared.

“The Risser’s put a lot of money into this operation. We wouldn’t be 410 racing without them, so I really want to thank them. We definitely couldn’t do this without them. We rebooted our program for this season. We switched to Panther Chassis (by Panther Frameworx), which is kind of an unknown, but the car works really well.”

The team plans to focus on Port Royal Speedway over the next few weeks to make sure their equipment is in good shape for PA Speedweek, which hosts several big shows that they have circled on the calendar as their next targets this season.

“The way things are going, I’m ready to get back at it right now.” Halligan said Monday. “I wish we could race more but we want to make sure we can get to the end of the season. We’re in good shape right now, but there are a lot of big races late in the season that we didn’t get to race last year, so we want to be smart and make sure we are there with a shot to win those.”

Up Next

Jeff and the team will return to Port Royal Speedway once again this Saturday night, June 11th on Camera & Autograph Night. The pits will be open to all ticketholders for one hour prior to the evening’s action. Please stop by to say hello, get an autograph and get a photo with Jeff!

Be sure to always look for the Jeff Halligan souvenir trailer on the midway behind the grandstand at Port Royal Speedway where you can pick up a shirt, hoodie or other items to show your support!

Dietrich highlights monster weekend with $19,000 Steve Smith Tribute score; Big Diamond, Ohio Sprint Speedweek all ahead
Jun 6, 2022

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (June 6, 2022) – Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing put together a monster campaign through the Keystone State during the recent weekend, winning events at Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway before finishing second during a Sunday night stop at Path Valley Speedway. Dietrich’s wins, combining for $24,500 including a $19,000 paday for his Lincoln triumph on Saturday, June 4, bumped his season victory total to six, five of which occurring at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway.

Dietrich’s aforementioned Lincoln Speedway win, occurring during the Steve Smith Tribute on June 4, was accomplished from the outside of row three, powering forward to take command from Anthony Macri with 15 circuits remaining. A slider through turns three and four sealed the deal, slipping under Macri when the Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, native hopped the turn four cushion.

“That was fun,” Dietrich explained. “That was a huge weekend for our team and a great way to activate our busy June schedule. Gary, my crew, the fans…there are so many pieces to the puzzle and I wouldn’t be in this position without them.”

ON DECK:
Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with a visit to Big Diamond Speedway in Minersville, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday, June 7.

(June 6, 2022) – Securing their fifth top-ten performance of the 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series season, Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing performed well on Friday night at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, North Dakota, and cashed in for a seventh place score, bettering themselves by two spots after starting ninth on the grid.

“Feels good to get back into the top-ten. We needed that result,” Zearfoss added, a former World of Outlaws winner at Williams Grove Speedway. “I can’t thank my team enough for all of their hard work and dedication. We’ve had our ups and downs, but they never give up, and when we put together solid performances like this, it helps us reassure our hard work. I think we are all ready to get back to Knoxville.”

Zearfoss was scheduled to make two starts with the Greatest Show On Dirt this weekend, but Mother Nature stepped in and ruined the Sunday night party at Huset’s Speedway forcing a postponement until Wednesday, June 22; the $100,000-to-win Huset’s Speedway High Bank Nationals will launch the following evening, Thursday, June 23.

VINCENTOWN, N.J. (June 6, 2022) – Justin Whittall was on course for a Port Royal Speedway victory on Saturday, June 4, that until Lady Luck stepped in and intervened, forcing the Vincentown, New Jersey, native to settle for sixth rather than a win.

Despite the hiccup, caused by contact with the outside wall, the team would recover to finish sixth.

“It’s tough to swallow, but we’ll move on and try again this weekend,” Whittall said, who finished ninth against the All Stars during Bob Weikert Memorial preliminary action on Saturday, May 28. “We’ll get that Port Royal win soon enough. We’ve been in a position to get it so many times…we just need some luck to play in our favor for once.”

Hobaugh aims for big results in All Star Speedweek visit to Sharon Speedway

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

CHICORA, Pa. (June 6, 2022) – Sharon Speedway has not been kind to George Hobaugh thus far in 2022, and although his results at the Hartford, Ohio, oval may speak otherwise, the Chicora, Pennsylvania, open wheeler has not been satisfied, aiming to trump all results with an All Star Circuit of Champions Ohio Sprint Speedweek victory on June 14.

Hobaugh, driver of the Hobaugh Motorsports, Krill Recycling, Laskowski Plumbing, Ridgeview Security, Hobaugh’s Auto Parts, Hobo Storage, No. 40 sprint car, finished third during his most recent attempt at the Sharon short track, leading the first 14 circuits of the $3,000-to-win Western Pennsylvania Speedweek visit on Saturday, June 4, before taking a backseat to eventual winner, AJ Flick. Flick’s winning move occurred just after a lap 14 restart, getting by Hobaugh down the backstretch the following circuit.

Prior to losing command, Hobaugh held a convincing lead, pushing the margin to almost two seconds before reaching traffic on lap 10.

“We’ve been so close on so many occasions. It’s tough to be frustrated, but at the same time we still are,” Hobaugh said, who led 28 laps against the All Stars before finishing fifth in Sharon’s Buckeye Cup on April 30. “I can’t thank my family enough for all of their help and support. Our partners, too…we wouldn’t be able to do any of this without them.”

ON DECK: George Hobaugh and Hobaugh Motorsports will highlight their upcoming schedule with an Ohio Sprint Speedweek start at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, on Tuesday, June 14. The All Star Circuit of Champions program will award $6,000.

The Sheboygan, Wisconsin, native would go on to finish 22nd.

“It was good to get to Knoxville and turn some laps. You can never have too many laps at Knoxville,” Scotty Thiel acknowledged, who earned IRA wins this season at Beaver Dam and Sycamore. “We played with a new motor and chassis combination this weekend and that set us back a little bit. Despite the fact, my guys worked their tails off and we were able to learn a lot on Saturday night. That will play to our favor when we return.

“We have a big weekend ahead and we’re excited to get started,” Thiel added. “I think we have the potential to win on more than one occasion.”

Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports top dogs in Full Throttle Sprint Car Nationals opener

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

PLEASANT HILL, Ohio (June 6, 2022) – Acquiring his third win at the Speedway in the last three seasons, Matt Westfall was victorious at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan, yet again, this time scoring a $2,500 top prize during opening night of the Full Throttle Sprint Car Nationals on Friday, June 3. The Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) victory was accomplished from the outside of row three, taking command just before halfway to secure his first win of the year overall. Westfall launched the BOSS program with a heat race victory.

Although just missing a weekend sweep, Westfall, driver of the Ray Marshall’s Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car, capped I-96 Speedway’s Full Throttle Nationals weekend doubleheader with another top-five result on Saturday, this time finishing fourth after starting second on the A-Main grid.

Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports earned two victories at I-96 Speedway during the 2020 season, one of which against the BOSS Series late in the season on September 25. The Forest, Ohio-based race team would score their second I-96 win of that season during Great Lakes Traditional Sprints competition on October 9.

“I-96 Speedway really fits my style of racing,” Westfall said following his victory on Friday, the 2021 BOSS Series champion. “It has the tendency to slick off to a curb and that allows me to pedal the car. We have a busy month of June ahead that will kick-off with a big weekend in Missouri with the Xtreme Outlaws. I think we are all excited to get started.

“I can’t thank Ray Marshall enough for this opportunity,” Westfall added. “He gives us the equipment to be competitive everywhere we run and we certainly wouldn’t be in this position without him.”

ON DECK: Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will continue their 2022 campaign with an Xtreme Outlaw Sprints Series doubleheader at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Missouri, on Friday and Saturday, June 10-11.

NEW NAME FOR THE NORTH EAST MOTOR SPORTS MUSEUM

LOUDON, NH: When plans to build a new locally-based motor racing museum were created over a dozen years ago it was assumed that the museum would cover the history of motorized racing in New England and nearby places that touch the six-state region.

As the nonprofit went forward the board of directors focused primarily on the history of New England motor racing. Now in its sixth year of operations, the museum has clearly become New England focused. It’s a lot more local, in our back yards, than was imagined when the museum was founded.

And the word “motor sports” which also seemed right at the time of the museum’s founding, also came to not fit. Four-wheel-drive off-road vehicles are often termed “motor sports” which did not fully represent the racing within the region. “You tell me we’re going to see motor sports and I’m not interested. If you want to go see racing, I’m on board,” said museum trustee Mike Smeriglio as changing the “motor sports” part of the museum’s name to “racing” was addressed.

So, as of June, 2nd 2022 the North East Motor Sports Museum has a new name, “New England Racing Museum.” It’s shorter and more directly describes who we are and what we do. The old logo, signs, stationary, wearables with the museum’s original name are all being replaced. There is a wicked good sale of North East Motor Sports Museum wearables going on at the museum currently.

The new name “New England Racing Museum” clearly reflects the cars, motorcycles, photos, artifacts, books, helmets, trophies, and uniforms on display at the museum. Going forward the museum’s mission will be exclusively focused on preserving and educating the public on the history of motor racing within the New England region specifically.

About the New England Racing Museum

The museum is owned by the Racing History Preservation Group, a 501 (c) 3 educational nonprofit organization that seeks to discover, preserve and share the history of motor racing in New England. The 10,000 square foot museum opened in 2017 on the grounds of the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH. Call 603-783-0183 or visit nemsmuseum.com to learn more.

Mid-Race Contact Ends Andy Gregg’s Summer Nationals Early with C&M Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting the call to run in Chico, CA over the weekend with C&M Motorsports, Andy Gregg jumped at the chance to return to the seat. While he had a good night going, an unfortunate incident halfway through Friday night’s feature ended Gregg’s night early.

“First and foremost, I want to say how grateful I was to get the opportunity to drive Cody and Mandi Geaney’s car over the weekend,” Andy Gregg said. “We were really fast in hot laps, and I knew we would be good all night. I felt like Cody, and I had great chemistry and it led to a fun night until we tore some equipment up.”

Timing the Legacy Specialties Inc./Lund Construction/Anrak backed No. 7c in second fastest in his qualifying group, Gregg would line up on the front row of his heat race.

With 61 cars on hand, each position was extremely vital in heat race action. Getting the jump, the Diamond Springs, CA driver was able to race his way to the win which gave him a berth in the redraw.

Lining up sixth in the feature event, Gregg would run sixth during the opening two laps before a caution flag paused the action. The ensuing restart saw Gregg get out of shape in turns one and two as he biked and fell back to 12th before he gathered the C&M Motorsports entry back up.

Racing around mid-pack as the laps clicked off, contact with another car would ensue on the 11th lap that ultimately brought his night to an early end.

“I made a mistake on an early restart, then as I was trying to get going again, there was some contact that tore the car up pretty bad,” Andy Gregg said. “I hate that we tore equipment up, but on the bright side the C&M Motorsports car has a lot of speed, and I am really thankful for the opportunity.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Legacy Specialties Inc., Lund Construction, Anrak, Alturas Tires, Swartz Diesel, PT Shocks, Creason Enterprises, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

ON TAP: C&M Motorsports will return to action on Saturday night in Placerville, CA.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-8, Wins-0, Top 5’s-0, Top 10’s-4

WILLIAMS UP TO FIFTH AND McCARTHY UP TO NINTH AFTER SALUTE TO INDY

(Ontario, CA, June 6, 2022) Flowdynamics drivers Logan Williams and Matt McCarthy both moved up a position in the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series standings after the 71st running of the Salute to Indy at Perris Auto Speedway. Williams, who finished fifth in the 30-lap main event, is now fifth in the season-long standings. McCarthy, who came home 15th, moved up to ninth. DSC_5244.jpg Logan Williams placed fifth in the Salute to Indy at Perris Auto Speedway.

Twenty-four cars showed up for the prestigious race on the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval. Williams, the son of National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Rip Williams, turned in the sixth-fastest qualifying lap with a time of 16.626. McCarthy ended up 17th fastest when he stopped the track clocks at 16.929. PAS 5-28-22=28m=3956-3.jpg Matt McCarthy won his heat and placed 15th in the Salute to Indy at Perris Auto Speedway. Doug Allen photo.

McCarthy, who calls Riverside, California home, was on the pole for the second heat race of the night. The first time the green flag waved to start the 10-lapper, McCarthy took the lead. However, two cars tangled in turn two and one of them stopped on the track. That forced officials to throw the yellow flag and call for a complete restart.

The second time the heat started, McCarthy again burst ahead of the rest of the pack, but the yellow light immediately came on. The driver on the outside of the front row did not get a good start. The field bunched up for a third try and as in the previous two, McCarthy flew into the lead. Throughout the race, he continually pulled away and ended up with a half straightaway advantage over the second-place car. It was his second heat race victory of the year.

“We felt pretty good these last few races,” McCarthy told the crowd in a brief interview after the heat race Triumph. “We have just been fighting demons, monkeys, or whatever you want to call it. We have got this thing pretty good right now and we just have to make it happen for 30-laps later on. So, we will see how it goes.”

A few moments after McCarthy’s commanding performance in his heat, Yorba Linda, California’s Williams took to the well-groomed oval for the final heat race of the night. Due to his impressive qualifying time, he was starting on the inside of the third row in fifth. When the 10-lap race ended, he had prevailed in a race-long battle to claim the fourth-place spot.

While McCarthy sparkled in the heat race portion of the team highlights, it was Logan who shined through in the main event. He started sixth in the 30-lapper with McCarthy coming from 17th.

When the Steve Russell green flag sent the field on its way, Williams led the first half lap of the race. He then settled into third place. For several of the early laps, he and his two brothers, Cody and Austin, were running second, third and fourth. In the second half of the race, Williams slipped as far back as seventh. However, in the closing laps, he came back to finish fifth. It was his fifth top 10 result this year and his second top-five in a row.

For McCarthy, he slipped back to 18th early on and was part of a pack of six or seven cars throughout the race. The group battled and scrapped all race long and when the checkered ended the action, McCarthy was ahead of the others in the pack and came home 15th.

Austin O’Neal 4th at I-80 Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Eager to get to the track on Friday night to try some changes to his setup with his Chalk Stix and Schure Built Suspensions FK Shocks, Austin O’Neal would do very well during his debut at I-80 Speedway as he pocketed a fourth-place finish.

“We made wholesale changes over the last week, and I felt really comfortable in hot laps and was immediately happy with the direction we were heading,” O’Neal said.

Taking the green flag from fourth in his heat race aboard the Marmon/Keystone/Weld Racing backed No. 11 entry, O’Neal jumped right into third before a close quarter move saw him move into second.

With the move getting returned, O’Neal would end up second in the heat race which was still good enough to lock him into the Top-Six redraw where the three-pill put him in the second row of the feature event.

Going green for the 20-lap feature, the pole sitter would not take off at the cone and the bottle neck resulted in O’Neal slipping back to sixth as the outside lane freight trained the inside lane.

Working the bottom for the first five laps and not able to make up any ground, O’Neal would change his plan and get to ripping around the top of the ½ mile Nebraska facility.

A yellow on lap-10 proved advantageous for O’Neal as he was able to nail the restart and pounce into fifth before hooking up in an entertaining battle with Stu Snyder for fourth.

Breaking Snyder’s momentum, O’Neal took over fourth in the closing laps as the track started laying rubber. Able to nurse his tires home in the final laps, O’Neal hung on to pick up his best finish of his young season with a fourth-place finish.

“It is still really early in our season, and I think we learned some things and made really good adjustments all night,” O’Neal said. “It gives us a really good baseline for big tracks moving forward and that is always a good thing.”

Austin O’Neal Racing would like to thank Marmon/Keystone, Weld Racing, River Valley Ag, Kaw Valley Companies, RacinBoys, HMC Performance Coatings, Mel Hambelton Ford Racing, Champion Oil, Taffs Carpets, Rod End Supply, Clemons Home Team, Mettec Titanium, V&L Properties, Toby’s Coatings, NGK Spark Plugs, Maxim Racing, Capital Sign Co., Wesmar Racing Engines, and Schure Built Suspensions for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-4, Wins-0, Top 5’s-1, Top 10’s-1

ON TAP: O’Neal is tentatively scheduled to compete at Knoxville Raceway this weekend.

 

 

Kerry Madsen Nets Pair of Top-5’s on Hall of Fame Saturday

PETERSEN MEDIA- Following Dennis Roth’s enshrinement into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame Saturday afternoon, Kerry Madsen had a solid outing Saturday night as he charged from eighth to fourth during Saturday’s regularly scheduled feature, and promptly followed that up with a run from eighth to third during the opening night make-up feature that was also ran.

“It was great to celebrate Dennis and Teresa Roth’s accomplishments on Saturday afternoon, and when we got to racing, I thought it was a pretty good night for our team as we had two strong runs from eight,” Kerry Madsen said.

Timing the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Toyota backed NO. 83Jr entry in second fastest in time trials amongst the 35 cars checked in for a night of racing on Saturday, the St. Marys, NSW native would then work his way forward to tally a third-place finish in his heat.

Sitting as the nightly high points earner, the vaunted eight inversion pill would be drawn and it lined Madsen up outside of the fourth row for the 20-lap feature event.

After a shower drenched the area, a bit of delay as officials re-worked the ½ mile surface led to very fast track conditions in the first feature event of the night.

Following a pair of red flags to open the feature, once things settled down the 20-lap race would click off without stoppage. Making some daring moves on the fast surface, Madsen would show speed as he worked the cushion and worked his way around the bottom.

Running in fifth, a late move around Rico Abreu would give him a fourth-place feature in what was the regularly scheduled feature event.

Returning to the pit area and debriefing with the Roth Motorsports team during the 360ci feature, Madsen and company would make a few adjustments as they prepared for the second 20-lap feature event where he again lined up in the fourth row.

A great start saw ‘The Mad Man’ quickly work his way up into fifth as he then got by Austin McCarl and Lynton Jeffry to overtake third.

With a couple of cautions slowing the race, Madsen would pressure Brian Brown on a pair of occasions for second but would be unable to complete the pass as he finished the night off with a third-place finish.

“We have made a few changes and I think we are figuring things out and showing a lot of speed,” Madsen said. “We have been good at Knoxville, and with the Outlaws coming in this weekend, it will be a good test to see where we are. Thanks to Dennis and Teresa Roth for always giving us the tools to win.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, Toyota, TRD, Jason, Tara, And Cole Roth Cattle Co., Roth Investments, Speedway Engines, Mobil1, FK Rod Ends, Vahlco Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Smith Titanium for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-16, Wins-0, Top 5’s-6, Top-10’s-11

ON TAP: Roth Motorsports and Kerry Madsen will be back at Knoxville Raceway on Friday and Saturday night as they battle the World of Outlaws.

Summer Nationals Top-10 for Sean Becker and Cook Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- Despite getting off to a slow start on Friday night in Chico, CA, Sean Becker and Cook Motorsports bounced back in the feature just as they did back at the Silver Cup and Becker worked his way forward and pocketed a seventh-place finish against the 61 car field.

“Friday night felt like déjà vu from our Silver Cup together at the beginning of the year,” Sean Becker said. “We kind of struggled all night and snuck into the feature event, but in the ‘A’ track conditions agreed with our car and we had a good run.”

Timing the Absolute Plumbing/Cook’s Contracting/CSR Builders No. 22x in seventh fastest in his qualifying group, ‘The Shark’ would line up seventh in his heat race.

Slipping back to an eighth-place finish, Becker would be bound to the ‘B’ where he would take the green flag from the 10th starting position as he chased after one of just fourth positions left into the feature event.

Coming to life in the ‘B’, Becker had his elbows up as he worked hard on the famed ¼ mile nestled in Northern California. Picking cars off lap after lap, Becker’s third place finish successfully locked him into the feature event, though he took the green flag from the 23rd starting position.

Just as he did in the ‘B’, Becker continued to be extremely fast when the ‘A’ rolled off. Working his way around the Silver Dollar Speedway bullring with extreme precision, the Roseville, CA driver cracked the Top-10 at the halfway point of the star-studded feature event.

Briefly falling back to 11th, Becker surged up to sixth on the race’s 19th lap before slipping back to seventh with nine to go.

Continuing to look for a way into the Top-5, Becker took sixth over on the 24th lap, but fell back to seventh when the 30-lapper came to a close.

“The Cook Motorsports car was really good on restarts, and that helped our cause a lot as he we took full advantage of all of them and battled our way to a good finish,” Becker added.

Cook Motorsports would like to thank Absolute Plumbing, Cook’s Contracting, CSR Builders, Shark Racing Engines, Cottage Grove Inn, Primetime Designs, Highline Performance, Les Schwab, and Cascade Pizza for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 7, Wins- 0, Top 5’s- 2, Top 10’s-4

ON TAP: Cook Motorsports is TBD on their next event.

 

 

Tanner Carrick Fourth at Summer Nationals

PETERSEN MEDIA: Friday night at Silver Dollar Speedway, Tanner Carrick would run very well during the Summer Nationals as he came away with a fourth-place finish.

“We were in the hunt up front for a while, but I got stuck on the top too long and we lost a couple of positions as the bottom was really fast,” Tanner Carrick said.

A total of 61 cars made their way to Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday night, the Lincoln, CA driver timed the CVC/Interstate Oil/Hanson Truss backed no. 83T car in fastest during qualifying group two.

Lining up on the pole of his heat race, Carrick jumped on the loud pedal and beat the field into turns one and two. Showing the way from flag to flag, Carrick picked up the win and earned a berth into the feature event as well as into the redraw.

Pulling the eight pill, Carrick would have his work cut out for himself against a very stout field of cars as he lined up in the four row. Getting off to a very quick start, the Lincoln, CA driver wasted no time moving forward as he worked into second on the race’s sixth lap.

Once in second, Carrick continued to pound the cushion as he chased after Andy Forsberg who had acquired the early race lead. Continuing to work the top, Carrick would soon feel pressure from Shane Golobic who ran in third but looked to overtake the second position.

As the bottom seemed to be the preferred grove, Carrick would get hung out on the cushion as Golobic got by on the 20th lap to drop him back to third, and Corey Day followed suit to shuffle Carrick back to fourth.

Making the move to the low groove, Carrick would hang on to fourth when the 30-lapper came to a close.

“I made the mistake of getting caught up on the top too long, but we had a really good car,” Carrick added. “My pill draws have been really bad all year long, so if we can have some luck on that front, I know we can contend for more wins.”

Tanner Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, Interstate Oil, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Emerald, Timberworks Construction, Hanson Truss, Eddie’s Lincoln Auto Body, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 26, Wins: 4, Top 5’s: 13, Top 10’s: 18

ON TAP: Tanner Carrick will return to action on Saturday night in Placerville, CA for the Dave Bradway Jr Memorial.

Eventful Trip for Tri-City for Paul Nienhiser

PETERSEN MEDIA: Friday night was a night that Paul Nienhiser tried to forget before even pulling his rig out of Tri-City Speedway. Between burnt off tires, and bent racecar parts, the Chapin, IL driver is already focused on a MOWA double header this weekend.

“We had one of those nights that you would just like to soon forget,” Paul Nienhiser said. “Between rubber, and wrecked parts it was just one of those nights.”

With a slew of events taking place at Tri-City Speedway during the week as the track hosted events in conjunction with NASCAR’s return to St. Louis, MO, rubber down track conditions would greet the field of Sprint Cars for their hot lap session.

Getting a get couple of laps in outside of the rubber, the Chapin, IL driver lined up sixth in his heat race aboard the CAM2 Lubricants/Buffalo Wild Wings/Innovative Designs backed No. 9x. Rubber conditions would see the driver burn off two rear tires as he fought his way up to third.

Getting out of the rubber, trying to make a move, Nienhiser would slip back to fifth at the stripe which would force him into the ‘B’. The 10-lap ‘B’ would see Nienhiser start and finish third, but would prove detrimental as he continued to use up tires.

Making the show, Nienhiser would opt to leave his burnt off tires on as he lined up 21st on the starting grid. The start of the race saw a fellow competitor climb over his front end and bent the front axle and ripped the nose wing off of Nienhiser’s entry.

Still opting to remain on the racing surface, contact from the rear from another car resulted in Nienhiser going to the work area so his team could assess the damage. Putting two tires on his car, he returned only to see a car crash in front of him.

With another car getting on the binders extremely quick, Nienhiser would climb the car’s left rear and finish off his battered front end and bring his night to an end.

“It was definitely not our finest hour, but I have to thank all of my guys for all of their hard work even though we have nothing to show for it,” Nienhiser added.

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Lubricants, Buffalo Wild Wings, Innovative Design, Mason Sound, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Signature Signs & Design, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, American Rental Center, Fierce Herbicide, Guse’s Pub & Eatery, Wessler Bros Agency, Willhite Mowing, T&K Tree Services, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Midland Performance, Simpson Race Products, Smith Titanium, and Premier Powder Coating for their continued support.

Nienhiser would also like to thank Midland Performance, Kinney Racing Engines, Rockstar Wraps, Heartland Trailer Manufacturing, Robert’s Tire Center, and Stronghurst Collision for their support of the No. 50 car.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-5, Wins-0, Top 5’s-1, Top 10’s-3

ON TAP: Nienhiser will be in action with MOWA twice this weekend as he will be at Jacksonville Speedway on Friday and at FALS in Fairbury, IL on Saturday.

Wilson Charges From 23rd to 11th During All Stars Event at Attica Raceway Park

Inside Line Promotions - CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (June 6, 2022) - Greg Wilson garnered a Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions Hard Charger Award last Friday at Attica Raceway Park.

Wilson guided the Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics backed Seeling Motorsports No. 97 from 23rd to 11th in the A Main at the dirt oval in Attica, Ohio.

The event was a work in progress for Wilson, who qualified 21st quickest before an eighth-place outing in a heat race relegated him toward the middle of the B Main. He rallied from 10th to third in the consolation race to transfer into the back of the main event. Wilson capped the night by gaining a dozen positions in the A Main to record his second Hard Charger Award of the season during All Stars competition.

"We were trying to get some depth to our program so we had to run some stuff a little different," he said. "We were better the other way early in the night so we have to figure that out. We started off not very good and we were deep in the B Main. I really didn't think we had a shot to make it. Andy (Potter) kept changing the car around and we got really good. That carried over to the feature. If we could clean up the early part of the night like we were early in the season I think we'll contend for a lot of wins."

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Atomic Speedway, which hosted the George Fisher Memorial Freedom 40. Wilson timed in 26th quickest and placed ninth in a heat race before hustling from 14th to fifth in the B Main, ending one spot shy of transferring into the main event.

"We passed a lot of cars, but I don't feel we were as good as we were early in the year," he said. "Andy made some changes before the races started. I gave up a tenth or two in qualifying and we were in a tough heat race. That's not an excuse. We need to be better early in the night. It was hard to make up any positions in the heat race. Andy made more changes for the B Main and we ripped through there pretty good. It was frustrating that we missed it, but I feel our car was a lot better."

Ohio Sprint Speedweek, which showcases nine All Star races in nine days, begins this Friday at Attica Raceway Park.

"Honestly, when we were kids that was our family vacation," Wilson said. "I've always thought it was awesome. It's a little stressful and I usually get wound up because I know the preparation it takes to be competitive all week. I'm really pumped because we get our other engine back which we seem to be the most competitive with."

Price Excited to Return to Familiar Track as Sides Motorsports Heads to Knoxville Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - GRAND FORKS, N.D. (June 6, 2022) - Robbie Price will get his first taste of a familiar track this weekend when the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series visits Knoxville Raceway.

The dirt oval in Knoxville, Iowa, showcases the Brownells Big Guns Bash on Friday and Saturday.

"It'll be nice that I've actually been somewhere for the first time so far," Price said. "I feel we haven't been that bad going to places I haven't been to. There will be a lot of cars there so it will be a tough weekend, but I'm still excited to get back to somewhere I know I've run semi-decent in the 360 stuff.

"Jay's stuff rolls pretty good there. TK has done well at the Knoxville Nationals. We'll roll to the track, hot lap and adjust from there."

Price has four races under his belt during the last three weekends since taking over the driving duties for Sides Motorsports.

"I think we've been good," he said. "We just need to qualify a little better."

Price qualified 12th quickest last Friday at River Cities Speedway, which hosted the 1st Leg of the Northern Tour. Unfortunately, both the heat race and Last Chance Showdown resulted in a DNF.

"I think we went out for qualifying too early as the track got better," he said. "Then I got a little tight on the start of the heat race and flew off the track. In the LCS I thought we were having some issues so I pulled off. I wanted to be safe than sorry."

That was the conclusion of the weekend as the Ace Ready Mix and Myrl & Roy's presents the World of Outlaws at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., on Sunday was postponed until June 22 because of rain.

QUICK RESULTS -

June 3 - River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D. - Qualifying: 12; Heat race: DNF (4); B Main: DNF (1).

Williamson Earns Career-Best Knoxville Raceway Finish With Podium Performance

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 6, 2022) - Garet Williamson posted a career-best third-place result at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday evening.

The Bryant Paver Motorsports driver was efficient every time he hit the track beginning with the second quickest qualifying lap.

"I came back in and didn't feel too good about my lap," he said. "I felt like I left some on the table. We were second and I didn't know if we'd stay on the board the rest of the way. Luckily, it held up. Then we went sixth to third in our heat race and that put us as the second-highest driver in points."

A four-car inversion lined Williamson up on the inside of the second row for the A Main.

"I think we were contenders almost all night," he said. "The start of the A Main is the only thing that held us back from potentially leading it. Several drivers on the outside row got by and we went into turn one in sixth or seventh. Once we got going we were really fast."

Williamson rallied back into his starting position and he reeled in the top two drivers before ending third.

"I had one of the best cars I've had there," he said. "I could run the top, bottom, slide myself. I was entering the top and driving it across the track. I think that says a lot about our car."

The team plans on racing this Friday and Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., during a POWRi 410 Outlaw Sprint League doubleheader. If it rains out the back-up plan is to return to Knoxville Raceway on Saturday.

QUICK RESULTS -

June 4 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 3 (6); Feature: 3 (3).

Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports look on to big weekend at the Sprint Car Capital of the World

2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Eighth | 3144 points [184 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

CARLISLE, Pa. (June 6, 2022) - Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports were elbows up Friday night at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, North Dakota, and although the Carlisle, Pennsylvania-based race team was forced to settle for a finish outside of the top-ten, ending their night 11th after starting 12th on the grid, they are eager to get back to work, ready to battle at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, in the two-day Brownells Big Guns Bash on June 10-11.

Schatz elbows up for podium at River Cities; Knoxville Raceway doubleheader next

Date: Friday, June 3rd Event: 1st Leg of the Northern Tour Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Track: River Cities Speedway (Grand Forks, North Dakota) Donny Schatz A-Main Finish (Start): 3rd (4th)

2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Sixth | 3180 points [148 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 6, 2022) - Recording his 26th top-five finish in 28 Series starts at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, North Dakota, ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion and nearby Fargo native, Donny Schatz, made his return to home dirt extra special on Friday night, June 3, ultimately cashing in for a podium finish and his 16th top-ten result of the season.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, Advance Auto Parts, Carquest, Ford Motor Company, Ford Performance, Curb Records, Sage Fruit, Digital Ally, Absolute Automation and Security, Hunt Brothers Pizza, Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts, No. 15 sprint car, finished third in his podium appearance, battling as high as second during one point of the contest. Defending World of Outlaws champion, Brad Sweet, would eventually slip by Schatz for second, all doing their best to master a juiced up River Cities.

Schatz and TSR were scheduled to make two starts with the Greatest Show On Dirt this weekend, but Mother Nature stepped in and ruined the Sunday night party at Huset’s Speedway forcing a postponement until Wednesday, June 22; the $100,000-to-win Huset’s Speedway High Bank Nationals will launch the following evening, Thursday, June 23.

“I don’t know if I’ve ever been on two wheels that many times in my life,” Schatz joked on the unique characteristics of the track. “There’s no denying this place had a lot of character tonight, I think Larry [Hillerud] would’ve been smiling down on that one. That’s the nature of the beast, though, not much surprises me on the road anymore. This team keeps digging and we keep putting the results together. The more we show up on this podium, we’ll eventually get back into victory lane.”

ON DECK: Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with a doubleheader at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Friday and Saturday, June 10-11. Dubbed the Brownells Big Guns Bash, the two-day showcase, a perfect preamble for the forthcoming 61st running of the prestigious Knoxville Nationals, will award a pair of $10,000 top prizes. Schatz is certainly no stranger to big money at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, earning ten Knoxville Nationals championships including eight under his tenure with Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing.

ADDITIONAL MEDIA: Donny Schatz and Tony Stewat/Curb-Agajanian Racing would like to thank all of their marketing partners: Advance Auto Parts, Carquest, Ford Motor Company, Ford Performance, Curb Records, Sage Fruit, Digital Ally, Absolute Automation and Security, Hunt Brothers Pizza, Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts.

Brown with double top-fives at Knoxville; The Greatest Show On Dirt invades Friday and Saturday

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (June 6, 2022) - Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing put together a near-perfect performance during their recent Knoxville Raceway visit on Saturday, June 5, scoring a pair of top-five performances including a runner-up finish during the April 23 make-up feature.

The Higginsville, Missouri, native started fifth on the make-up grid, driving to second to set-up a duel with three-time All Star Circuit of Champions champion, Aaron Reutzel. Although the lead duo got to traffic with three to go, Reutzel was able to stay wide and keep Brown at bay.

Brown, ace of the Casey’s, FVP, Andy's Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Rowdy Energy, Ditzfeld transfer, Champion Brands, MC Power, Weld Wheels, Housby, Maxim Chassis, J.D. Welding & Machine, Waldinger, Smiley’s Racing Products, Wolfe Eye Clinic, Mid Mo Equipment, Bell Helmets, K1 RaceGear, No. 21 sprint car, launched Saturday’s program with a fifth-place score in the regularly scheduled program, improving one position after battling with some of the best in the country including Rico Abreu and Kerry Madsen.

“It’s pretty tough to be disappointed with a pair of top-five performances, and that was without Danny (Lasoski) with us this weekend,” Brown said, a two-time winner at Knoxville Raceway already this season. “The World of Outlaws will be in town this weekend and we’re ready for the challenge. Our goal is to perform well right out of the gate and get this Casey’s/FVP No. 21 to the front with the best in the world.”

ON DECK:
Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series doubleheader at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Friday and Saturday, June 10-11.

TAFOYA GETS SIXTH IN SALUTE TO INDY AND MOVES UP TO FOURTH IN POINTS

(Chino Hills, CA, June 3, 2022) Eddie Tafoya Jr. brought his #51T USAC/CRA Sprint Car home eighth in last Saturday night’s “Salute to Indy” at Perris Auto Speedway. The finish allowed the young Chino Hills, California driver to climb into fourth in the season-long championship point standings.

In one of the most exciting main events in track history, Tafoya came from the 12th starting spot to record his seventh top 10 finish in the first 10 races of the 2022 campaign.

When the 30-lap main started, Tafoya, in his eye-catching car, was rolling off from the 12th spot. Early on, he surprisingly slipped back to the 16th position. However, beginning with a lap seven restart, he started picking off cars and charging towards the front. “Mr. Smooth” soon found himself approaching and then breaking into the top 10. His forward progress remained constant to the end and he was closing fast on the seventh-place car when the checkers ended the race.

Before he got to the main, Tafoya recorded a lap of 16.285 in single-car qualifying. That was the 12th fastest of the 24 cars that recorded laps in time trials. He followed the qualifying effort up with a fifth-place finish in his heat race.

Tafoya came into the night fifth in points and was fourth by the time he left for the 35-mile drive home. But he cannot rest on his laurels as the new fifth-place driver will enter next week’s race at Ventura just one point behind him.

Tafoya and his crew have this weekend off. After next week’s competition in Ventura, there will be one more race for the team in June. That will be the “1st Annual Bubby Jones/Ray Scheetz Memorial” at Perris on June 25th.

Tafoya and the #51T team would like to thank Specialty Fasteners, DRC Chassis, Ryder Racing Engines, Simpson Safety Products, Bell, Benic Enterprises, BR Motorsports, PSC Powder Coating, Magik Graphics, Gasper Transportation, Owen’s Insurance Services, and Weld Wheels for making the 2022 season possible.

If you or your company would like to be a part of the Specialty Fastener team’s 2022 season effort, please contact Eddie Tafoya Jr. via phone at (909) 393-3999 or by e-mail at teamtafoya@aol.com. He will be happy to talk to you and lay out the team’s 2022 plans.

Fans can follow Tafoya on Instagram @eddietafoya51. The same contact point can be used to purchase his great-looking shirts via mail.

BRODY ROA TAKES THIRD IN SALUTE TO INDY AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY

(Cypress, CA, June 4, 2022) After taking a few weeks off to do family things with his wife and young daughter, veteran driver Brody Roa returned to the cockpit of his famous #91R sprint car and finished third in the 71st running of the “Salute to Indy” at Perris Auto Speedway. It was his first race since finishing sixth in the USAC/CRA Series at Perris at the end of April. PAS 5-28-22=91r=4002-3.jpg Brody Roa qualifying at Perris. Photo courtesy of Doug Allen.

Roa, 31, of Garden Grove, California, came into the celebrated race as the defending champion. He immediately served notice that he meant business with the third-fastest qualifying time of the night at 16.447. He followed that up with a convincing win in the third 10-lap heat race.

Defense of his title saw Roa start on the outside of the 2nd row in the 30-lapper. From the drop of the green flag, he was in the fight up front in what turned out to be one of the most crowd-pleasing events in the track’s 26-year history.

Roa only slipped out of the top five one time in the race. That occurred when a car in front of him parked in turn four. “The Pride of Garden Grove” had to slow up to avoid contact and went from third back to sixth, but he quickly found his way back into the top five. By lap 22, he was up to third and he stayed there for the duration. That was his best finish in five starts with USAC/CRA this year.

“We were just a little off tonight,” Roa told the fans after the race. “Cody (winner Cody Williams), after that last yellow, he was gone. Good job by R.J. (second-place finisher R.J. Johnson). It was a good race. I feel like I was just kind of sitting there hanging out watching it. Glad to run third. We will take it and learn from it. We just guessed wrong tonight.”

Even though Roa has only contested five of the first 10 USAC/CRA races this year, he is 14th in the championship standings and has recorded a third, a fourth, a fifth, and two sixth-place finishes in his five starts.

Fans who missed the race and who have a subscription to Flo can watch a full replay on demand.

Due to fuel costs and rising prices, the #91R team will not be headed for Huset’s Speedway for the USAC National Series race in early July. However, Roa is still open if any team is looking for a driver. If interested, please contact him by phone or the email information within this release.

Roa’s new shirts and hoodies will finally be available in June. Hoodies are available via pre-order only and must be ordered by June 12th. Shirts will be available at all races beginning on June 25th at Perris. They are also available online along with other Brody Roa Performance items at the following link https://www.brodyroa.com/. 284547483_4932496253470857_4133713825537182415_n.jpg284612631_4932496186804197_4985662261410284674_n.jpg

Just beyond the horizon, Roa and the BR Performance crew are looking forward to coming back to Indiana for the annual “Indiana Sprint Week” from July 22nd through the 30th. The team has a couple of fresh cars and a couple of fresh engines for the journey and it is seeking some marketing sponsors for the trip. If you or your company would like to join up with this well-marketed friendly team, email Roa at mailto:brodyroa91@gmail.com. You can also call or text at 714-932-7994.

In 2022, Roa will race USAC/CRA, USAC National, and other select events, in his #91R BR Performance/HD Industries Eagle. He will also drive the #8M for May Motorsports in select USAC West Coast events. The 2019 USAC Southwest and 2017 USAC West Coast champion is always open to discussing other driving opportunities.

Roa and the team want to thank the following sponsors for making the 2022 season possible. HD Industries, Burris Racing, Sander Engineering, Inland Rigging, Caltrol, “Biker” Bruce Fischer, Competition Suspension, ALR Virtual Services, K-1 Race Gear, Molecule, Rod End Supply, Driven Racing Oil, Baldwin Filters, and NGK Spark Plugs. In addition, the veteran driver offers thanks to RDM Mechanics, Fastenal, Coopers Propane, Ten West Towing, Ten West Environmental, TJM Distribution, and Westco International for sponsoring the #8M he will pilot for Jayson May on 10 occasions in 2022.

If you or your company would like to jump on board and receive recognition as a team partner throughout the 2022 racing season, please give the two-time USAC champion racer a phone call or drop him a note at the contact information on the top of this release.

WESTBROOK, DRYDEN, BAILEY, AND LAFANTAISIE WIN ON FRIDAY NIGHT THUNDER TV NIGHT AT OHSWEKEN

By Tommy Goudge

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (June 3, 2022) – The third try at getting the 2022 season started was the charm at Ohsweken Speedway on Friday night; Dylan Westbrook, Darren Dryden, Dave Bailey, and Tyler Lafantaisie took the first A-Main wins in the first racing action at the track in nearly 1,000 days.

Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars
Ryan Turner and Mack DeMan made up the front row for the 20 lap 360 Sprint Car A-Main, and Turner took the early lead. Three time division champ Dylan Westbrook quickly moved up to take the lead from Turner, and then stayed up front through several restarts as Turner tried to regain the top spot. Westbrook took the 29th Ohsweken 360 Sprint Car win of his career while Turner took the runner-up spot, followed by Glenn Styres, Cory Turner, and row seven starter Aaron Turkey. Heat races for the 24 car field were claimed by Styres, Nick Sheridan, and Mack DeMan. Westbrook has been racing on the American Sprint Car Series National Tour for the last two seasons, and recently took over the top spot in North American 360 Sprint Car driver rankings.

Strickland's GMC Crate Sprint Cars
Jesse Costa and Tyler Ward were on the front row for the 20 lap Crate Sprint Car A-Main, but Darren Dryden made his way to the front and went on to take the first Ohsweken Crate Sprint Car win of his career. Costa stalked Dryden for several laps, but had a promising run around the high side negated by a yellow flag. Costa took the runner-up spot, followed by Lucas Smith, Eric Gledhill, and Curtis Gartly. Heat race wins for the 30 car field went to Costa, Brett Stratford, and Ward, while Terry Baker won the B-Main. Everyone at Ohsweken would like to send best wishes to Cam MacKinnon, who suffered an apparent arm injury in a grinding A-Main crash.

Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks
Dave Bailey and Ryan Beagle were front row starters for the 20 lap Thunder Stock A-Main, and Bailey was looking to start his pursuit of a sixth consecutive track championship off on the right foot. Beagle kept Bailey honest though, and used the middle groove to nose ahead of Bailey several times as the pair squared off through a spate of restarts. Bailey was trying to stick to the low groove but also used the space Beagle had shown him to lock down the 29th Ohsweken Thunder Stock win of his illustrious career. Beagle settled for the runner-up spot, followed by row ten starter Mike Klazinga, Mark Fawcett, and Chris Hale. Heat race wins for the 31 car field went to Bailey, Beagle, and Fawcett.

HRW Automotive Mini Stocks
Dusty DeBoer and Eric Yorke had front row starting positions for the 15 lap Mini Stock A-Main, and DeBoer was looking for a strong start in defense of his title of reigning division champion. Tyler Lafantaisie had other ideas though, and was stalking DeBoer for the lead when Joey Wilcox spun in front of the leaders in turn two. DeBoer clipped the Wilcox machine with his right front but suffered minimal damage. The ensuing yellow flag gave Lafantaisie his opportunity to pounce though, and Tyler took advantage to take the lead and eventual win. Matt Nuell crossed the finish line in second, but was later disqualified for a technical infraction. Jeremy Hughes took the final podium spot while DeBoer settled for fourth, and Nick Erskine rounded out the top five. Heat races for the 30 car field were claimed by DeBoer, Yorke, and Nuell.

UP NEXT AT OHSWEKEN SPEEDWAY
APC Auto Parts Centres presents presents UMP/CDN Modifieds featuring NASCAR legend Ken Schrader, plus 358 Modifieds, Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks, and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks. Visit www.ohswekenspeedway.com for more information.

Sprint spectacular #2 ready to go for Sat June 11th at Michaels Mercer Raceway.

By Jim Balentine (Mercer,Pa)

The sweet smell of methanol will be returning to Michaels Mercer Raceway for the second of eight 410 sprint car spectacular races paying $3000 to win at the historic 38 smile Bent egg oval coming up this Saturday, June 11. With few tracks racing sprint cars on Saturday June 11th because of Ohio sprint speedweek there should be a lot of cars coming from Central Ohio and western Pennsylvania to the speedway which could be a battle of the border wars. It will also be a regular point night for our regular four divisions of big block modifieds; Racesaver 305 sprints; FASTRAK modifieds and mini stocks.

Jack Sodeman Jr who just joined the 20+ win club going back to 1966 will be there to defend his victory back on May 28. Many Sprint drivers are praising the new red clay surface in just its second week of competition so it should be an exciting night as mercer is expecting a large contingent of sprint cars.

Brad Rapp who last year was on fire in the latter part of the year picking up big high-paying races in the big block modifieds Will be leading the charge with last year‘s track champion Eric Gabany also a winner on opening night .

Youngster Roman Jones who picked up his first career full-size car win in the racesaver 305 sprints will be back to also defend his victory on May 28th. he has joined his sister Vivian as the only brother/sister combination to win features in the same class in the 71 year history of the speedway. Jeremy Kornbau who also won his first ever 305 race will also be leading the charge.

A legendary name that goes back to the early days of the Speedway had one of its siblings pick up his first career win in the FASTRAK modifieds with Jeff Schaffer Jr. taking his first win adding him name to the Mercer family tree. 2 time track champion Brian Schaffer won the opening night feature event.

In the mini stocks it has been all 2021 track champion Andy Thompson winning both feature events but they have not been easy as he has been challenged until the checkered flag flew.

This will be the only 410 sprint car race within 2 hours of Mercer Pennsylvania so get there early to get the best seats to see many outside invaders taking on our locals.

Pit gates will open at 4pm. grandstands at 5pm racing at 7pm.

Concessions will be open but outside food and drink are permitted inside. Coolers must fit between the bleachers with no glass. Alcohol is permitted. Lawn chair seating is permitted in the grassy area by the fence. We are a cash only facility with no ATM on site.

Goldesberry Earns Two Top 5’s

Springfield, IL (June 2, 2022)- Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team logged over 1,100 miles last weekend and captured two Top 5 finishes with the IRA.

Saturday night the action was in Rice Lake, WI. With 20 cars checked in, Goldesberry would qualify seventh. This would put him in the first heat race outside the front row. He would get a good start and win the heat which put him the dash redraw. He would start outside the front row again and go on to finish second on a very slick surface. For the feature, Goldesberry would like up the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim outside the second row. On a slice track that eventually laid rubber, Goldesberry ran third most of the race. A yellow flag came out on the last lap which led to a green, white, checkered. Goldesberry wasn’t able to hold his position and slipped back to finish fifth.

“We were pretty good at Rice Lake. We had our Rockstar car up front all night. The late caution didn’t help and we lost a few positions on the last lap.” said Goldesberry.

Sunday the IRA headed east to tackle 141 Speedway. With 27 cars checked in, Goldesberry would qualify is Rockstar Energy Drink machine third quick. This would give him a starting position outside the second row for his heat race. He would go on to finish fourth and qualify for the dash redraw. Drawing the fifth starting position in the second dash, Goldesberry would get past two cars to finish third in the quick four lap dash. His dash finish would line him up in the sixth starting position for the feature. The leaders got into lap traffic early and Goldesberry was able to make some moves during the 30 lapper. He would bring home his Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim third and get another podium finish.

“We had another good night at 141. Our goal is to make the dash every night to put us in position to win. It was a good weekend for our Rockstar Energy team.” Said Goldesberry.

This weekend Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team will be in action with the IRA at Wilmot Speedway in Wilmot, WI.

TRENT WILLIAMS GETS HARD CHARGER AWARD IN PERRIS SALUTE TO INDY

(Hesperia, CA, June 1, 2022) Placing a disappointing lap in qualifying behind him, Apple Valley, California sprint car driver Trent Williams put on a show going from 18th to finish ninth in the USAC/CRA 30-lap “Salute to Indy” last Saturday at Perris Auto Speedway. The performance earned Williams the “Hard Charger Award” for passing more cars than any other driver.

Early in the night in qualifying, Williams steered his #52V to a lap of 16.935. That was 18th fastest of the 24 cars on the premises and it planted “T-Dub” on the pole for the third heat race. The personable driver led the first three laps and was third when the checkered flag ended the 10-lapper.

For the main, Williams was on the outside of row nine, which was 18th in the 22-car field. By the time the first yellow flag slowed the race for a car that stopped on the track on lap seven, he had already advanced three spots to 15th. As the race progressed, he continually picked off cars and moved forward. With each car he passed, the level of competition grew tougher. Yet he never stopped making passes and was in ninth when the Steve Russell checkered flag ended the race on lap 30. In the end, he passed more cars than any other driver and thus, earned the “Jim and Chet Gardner Hard Charger Award.”

Williams stayed in 13th in the championship standings, but he has closed to within 22-points of 10th place. He will try to climb farther up the points ladder when the USAC/CRA Series makes its only appearance of 2022 at the Ventura Raceway on June 11th.

When the Victory Boys Performance team heads to Ventura, they will be in a new, long rig and toter they recently picked up from a drag racing friend.

Williams would like to thank marketing partners Victory Boys Performance, Sorrento Homes, and JasonR.Photos for making it possible to race his Maxim Chassis/Shaver Engines #52V during the 2022 season. If you or your business would like to be a partner of the Victory Boys racing endeavors, please call (760) 780-8782 or mailto:trent.williams.racing@gmail.com.

Price Guides Sides Motorsports Into Feature Start at Atomic Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. (June 2, 2022) - Robbie Price made his first World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series A Main behind the wheel of the Sides Motorsports No. 7s last Saturday at Atomic Speedway.

Price kicked off the night at the high-banked oval in Chillicothe, Ohio, by qualifying ninth quickest in his group. He then finished where he started - fifth - in a heat race to lock into the main event. Price battled for a top 15 throughout the feature before ending 16th - his best World of Outlaws result since a 13th-place outing last September.

"It's going pretty good," car owner Jason Sides said. "Some of these tracks he hasn't been to is a stepping stone for him. We're trying to get both of us acclimated together to reading the race tracks and making progress from there.

"He qualified pretty good and put himself in a position to get through the heat race. It's all about qualifying. You have to get that set up to where you can race you're way in. Then once you're in the feature you get 30 laps to learn. He was able to do that at Atomic. We did pretty good there."

The holiday weekend concluded on Monday at Lawrenceburg Speedway, where Price timed in 14th quickest in his group. He placed seventh in a heat race and eighth in the Last Chance Showdown.

"He was just as good as the other cars there, but it was all track position," Sides said. "Once it got strung out there it was difficult to pass until the feature. That's where qualifying is so important."

The team is headed to River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D., on Friday for the 1st Leg of the Northern Tour and to Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., on Sunday for the Ace Ready Mix and Myrl & Roy's presents the World of Outlaws.

"The tracks this weekend will be maybe more his style with some of the tracks he's raced on," Sides said. "We're looking forward to both of those race tracks. Hopefully we can get qualified well, make the main events and continue to improve together."

QUICK RESULTS -

May 28 - Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio - Qualifying: 9; Heat race: 5 (5); Feature: 16 (17).

May 30 - Lawrenceburg Speedway in Lawrenceburg, Ind. - Qualifying: 14; Heat race: 7 (7); B Main: 8 (7).

Wilson Set for All Star Weekend at Attica Raceway Park and Atomic Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (June 2, 2022) - Greg Wilson returns to Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions competition this weekend with a pair of races in his home state of Ohio.

The Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics supported Seeling Motorsports driver plans on racing this Friday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica and Saturday at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe during the George Fisher Memorial Freedom 40.

"I feel like if things fall right at Attica we can win a race there," Wilson said. "We've been competitive lately. We struggled the last few years. Finally, I feel if we can get over the hump we can win some races there. It's our backyard and it's home so we always look forward to racing there."

Wilson has earned a podium and three top-10 results this season at Attica Raceway Park. He made his season debut at Atomic Speedway last Saturday during a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event.

"I'm really feeling like if things play out right we should have a shot to win both of them this weekend," he said. "I'd be tickled to death if we could leave the weekend with some podium finishes. Otherwise I'd grade my weekend based on if we could progress from last week with the changes we've made."

Wilson timed in 15th quickest in his group before advancing from eighth to sixth place in a heat race and from fourth to second place in the Last Chance Showdown to transfer into the back of the main event. He gained a trio of positions in the feature to place 19th.

"I wasn't comfortable early in the night," he said. "We just haven't raced on a lot of places like Atomic. I probably didn't make great laps in qualifying. We made a lot of changes and even in the feature it wasn't doing what I wanted it to do when we've been good.

"We took a new car with a completely new engine package. It was something we hadn't run all year. I felt we weren't horrible because we made the race and were semi-competitive. I was a little worried about the depth of our team. Yes, we have this car and this engine we're good with. But what if something happens to the car or when we have to send the engine back. We don't have that quite figured out yet. We have to work on some motor stuff a bit and switch some stuff around with a different car. I think last Saturday helped that. We came home and this week we've talked about a lot and worked on a lot. We're going to try something a little different in our car engine-wise this weekend."

Reinhardt Has Attica and Atomic on Tap This Weekend as Final Tune-up for Ohio Speedweek

Port Royal Struggles Continue at Weikert Memorial

Port Royal, PA – June 2, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Kyle Reinhardt and his Capitol Renegade team have shown a lot of progress on the bullrings around the Midwest so far this season, but one mystery they haven’t been able to solve the past couple seasons is the always slick Port Royal Speedway.

When they unloaded the Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91 for the 2-day Bob Weikert Memorial this past weekend at ‘The Speed Palace’, they brought some new ideas in hopes of turning their luck around.

Weikert Memorial Format

Although the lucrative event is sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions, the Weikert Memorial uses its own, unique format. Full details are included below, but here are the key points for the car counts at Port Royal Speedway’s event:

single flight time trials, order determined by pill draw points awarded following time trials 10-lap heats, top 8 in each starting lineup is inverted 8 from time trials passing points awarded following heats top 10 in points after qualifying participate in a redraw for their A-main starting spot 11-20 in points after qualifying line up in A-main heads up by points remaining drivers race the B-main with the top 4 finishers tagging the back of 30-lap A-main

May 28: Weikert Memorial Night 1, Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

(41 cars, Qualifying 31st, Heat 5th, B-main 15th)

Saturday was a bit of an uphill battle from the start. The Capitol Renegade team’s pill draw placed them 35th in the time trial order for the 41 cars on hand. From that slot, Reinhardt mustered the 31st quickest time in the field and earned 60 points.

Reinhardt’s qualifying run put him on the pole of heat number three with a chance to add 100 points if he could hold off the field for 10 laps. From the inside line, he wasn’t able to take control of the race on the opening lap, so Reinhardt held down second. Fighting an ill-handling car, he slid backwards to a 5th place finish when the checkered flag fell, adding another 66 points to his total for the night.

Following the heat race, the team had a lot to get done before the B-main. They replaced the steering box on the No.91 and made adjustments that would hopefully enable Reinhardt to race into a top four transfer position. The 12-lap B-main was his final shot to earn his way into the A-main. The adjustments would have to be spot on to get there from his 11st starting spot.

Things quickly went from bad to worse when Reinhardt’s No.91 looped around in turn one on the start, completing a full 360-degreen spin and continuing on. By All Star rules, he was required to restart the race from the rear of the field. Reinhardt’s night ended with a 15th place finish in the B-main.

May 29: Weikert Memorial Night 2, Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

(44 cars, Qualifying 22nd, Heat 10th, B-main DNS)

Day two of the Weikert Memorial didn’t bring much better fortune for Reinhardt. He went out late (32nd of 44 cars) and registered the 22nd quickest lap. That was the good news.

Reinhardt started outside the second row in the fourth heat and was working to find a groove that would make his tight race car a little happier. Instead, he found the outside wall in turn two, damaging the front axle.

The Capitol Renegade team, with assistance from multiple other teams, executed a front axle change in the work area to get Reinhardt back on the track. He finished the qualifying race in 10th.

Following the heat race, the team found rear end damage from the earlier impact. The damage would require a complete change of the rear assembly. Reinhardt was scheduled to start 13th in the B-main, so the team made the decision to load up and call it a night.

“We just have to move on and shake off the weekend. We’ll keep digging and get this figured out“, Reinhardt said.

Up Next

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team will head to Ohio for the weekend with the All Star Circuit of Champions. The tour will make stops at Attica Raceway Park on Friday and Atomic Speedway on Saturday. Both tracks will later be a part of the 9-race Ohio Speedweek that will take place June 10th-18th.

“I’m looking forward to getting back to Attica and building on our improvement there. Atomic will be a new track for me. We’ve been getting better on these types of places, so we can use this weekend to get ourselves ready for Ohio Speedweek.“, Reinhardt commented.

Newlin’s Weikert Memorial Weekend a Tough One
 

BK Motorsports Working Hard To Be Ready for Upcoming Weekend

Port Royal, PA – June 2, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Zach Newlin and the new BK Motorsports 410 sprint car team entered the 2-day Bob Weikert Memorial race weekend with very limited laps under their collective belt and very little time to get to know each other or their equipment.

Newlin’s first outing with the team at ‘The Speed Palace’ one week earlier was interrupted by rain a few laps into the feature event and his second outing with the team the next day at Path Valley Speedway was washed out by rain following time trials.

Add to that a field of some of the best teams in the country who had come to town to chase the top prize of $10,000 on Saturday night and $29,000 on Sunday night at Port Royal Speedway.

All that considered, the weekend was likely to be a challenging one, but you have to race to improve.

Weikert Memorial Format

Although the lucrative event is sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions, the Weikert Memorial uses its own, unique format. Full details are included below, but here are the key points for the car counts at Port Royal Speedway’s event:

single flight time trials, order determined by pill draw
points awarded following time trials
10-lap heats, top 8 in each starting lineup is inverted 8 from time trials
passing points awarded following heats
top 10 in points after qualifying participate in a redraw for their A-main starting spot
11-20 in points after qualifying line up in A-main heads up by points
remaining drivers race the B-main with the top 4 finishers tagging the back of 30-lap A-main

May 28: Weikert Memorial Night 1, Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

(41 cars, Qualifying 29th, Heat 11th, B-main 17th)

During Saturday’s qualifying, Zach Newlin wheeled the Grove Financial & Associates / Dillman Hauling / Centre Roofing & Contracting / Mattas Motorsports / Victory Auto / Ron’s RV Sales / The Roast Post / FIT Transportation / Kirby Kitner Excavating / Christine Booher, Realtor / T&M Homebuilders / Strange Oval / Walker Performance Filtration / Newlin Bar Service, BK Motorsports No.77 around the fairgrounds half-mile oval in 17.069 seconds, good enough for 29th of the 41 cars to go under the clock.

The inversion put the BK Motorsports entry on the pole for heat number one. The initial start was called back when Newlin hit the gas, but his front row mate did not. Newlin was sent back one row per All Star rules.

In the end, that was the least of Newlin’s problems. When the race finally went green, he immediately experienced a left rear vibration. The shaking of the left rear tire was visible from the stands. Newlin navigated his way out of the racing groove and pulled off the racing surface. The team later determined the wheel was bent, causing the unbalanced rotation.

Having been credited with an 11th place finish in the heat race, Newlin’s point total suffered and landed him in the 18th starting spot in the 12-lap B-main, from which only the top four finishers would advance to the A-main. The Millerstown, PA driver took advantage of the seat time, ultimately finishing his night in 17th.

May 29: Weikert Memorial Night 2, Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

(44 cars, Qualifying 29th, Heat 10th, B-main 19th)

On night number two of the Bob Weikert Memorial event, 44 teams were pit-side. Once again Zach Newlin registered the 29th quickest lap in the field, and once again he had the pole for heat number one.

Newlin led the first lap of the heat race and held his own in the early going but faded during the latter half and crossed the line in 10th.

Starting deep in the B-main again, this time 16th, the 12-lap event would serve as valuable seat time. Newlin was doing just that, making laps until lap nine. He had a run off turn two and was looking to clear the two cars just in front of him. As Newlin moved to the low line and was almost past the pair, contact with another car sent Newlin’s No.77 into a nasty series of end-over-end tumbles, throwing off a shower of sparks as the metal impacted the inside concrete barrier. Thankfully, Newlin crawled from the wreckage under his own power.

“We are just trying to figure this car out and get some laps. I just came back from a concussion from another wreck here (in March). I thought I had him cleared. Now we have a junk race car. It sucks. We were supposed to start the makeup feature later tonight.“, a disappointed and frustrated Newlin said in an on-track interview on FloRacing while crews worked to clean up the scene.

Up Next

Plans are for Newlin and the BK Motorsports team to return to Port Royal Speedway this Saturday, June 4th. They are working hard to get a another car ready in time.

Zach’s next 358 sprint car race in the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m is slated for Friday, June 10th at Williams Grove Speedway.

Tony Gomes set to tackle 50th annual Dirt Cup with Rutz Racing later this month

By Gary Thomas

Alger, Washington…Modesto, California’s Tony Gomes is excited to team up with Rutz Racing and make his first career Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup start later this month at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Washington.

The much anticipated $50,000-to-win event is sanctioned by the NARC Fujitsu 410 Sprint Cars and will occur on June 23rd, 24th and 25th.

“I’m really looking forward to teaming back up with Doug Rutz and Rutz Racing for the Dirt Cup at Skagit Speedway,” commented Gomes. “It’s been a little while since we have worked together, but I felt like we had some good speed a few years ago. The Dirt Cup is shaping up to be a huge event with a lot of great cars, so I can’t wait.”

The 2019 campaign saw Gomes make several starts with the Langley, British Columbia based team throughout the West Coast. Along the way they picked up a victory with the Summer Thunder Sprint Cars at Cottage Grove Speedway. One week later he then drove the Rutz Racing No. 8R to another triumph, this time at Electric City Speedway in Great Falls, Montana.

“We are excited to have Tony Gomes in the seat of our car for the Dirt Cup,” said team owner Doug Rutz. “The entire staff at Skagit Speedway has been doing excellent things with the facility and there is a lot of buzz once again for this event. We had success with Tony a few years ago and hope to put together more of the same later this month.”

Gomes has previously made just one career Winged 410 Sprint Car start, which resulted in a sixth-place finish at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford.

“I am certainly thrilled to have another shot at getting in a Winged 410 Sprint Car coming up,” Gomes mentioned. “It’s been a pretty good start to the season down here in California thus far and has felt good to be back in a car on a consistent basis. I’m thankful for the opportunity with Menne Motorsports this year, as well as having the chance to run for C&M Motorsports when our schedules allow.”

Jeff Halligan Earns Podium Finish in Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway
By mraddicted2dirt

Records Another Top-5 in Makeup Feature On the Same Night

Port Royal, PA – June 1, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Jeff Halligan and the Risser Motorsports team have been waiting for the Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway since the season began. Although they have performed well thus far, they felt things were just a tick off. They decided to make the trip to Selinsgrove Speedway to try some things and get one more race under their belt before the big weekend.

May 26: Thursday Thunder, Selinsgrove Speedway / Selinsgrove, PA

(20 cars, Qualifying 3rd Group 2, Heat 5th, A-main 11th)

Halligan’s No.45 was one of 20 cars pit-side Thursday night at Selinsgrove Speedway. Following qualifying, the field was divided into two 8-lap heat races to determine the starting lineup for the A-main. The heats line-ups were set straight-up by their qualifying times.

Halligan timed 3rd quickest in Group 2 and thus started inside row two of the second heat. A stumble on the start cost the Ephrata, PA driver two spots. He was able to settle into a rhythm but wasn’t able to recapture the lost positions and rode home 5th.

The 25-lap main event was run at a blistering pace set by Gio Scelzi. Scelzi took command from the start. Meanwhile, 10th starting Jeff Halligan was battling to hang on to a top-10 spot. The race remained green and went the entire distance, setting a new 25-lap track record of 7:12:535 for Scelzi. Halligan held on for an 11th place finish.

Following their first trip of the year to Selinsgrove Speedway, the team turned their attention to one of the marquee events that is circled on their calendar each year: The Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway.

Weikert Memorial Format

Although the lucrative event is sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions, the Weikert Memorial uses its own, unique format. Full details are included below, but here are the key points for the car counts at Port Royal Speedway’s event:

single flight time trials, order determined by pill draw
points awarded following time trials
10-lap heats, top 8 in each starting lineup is inverted 8 from time trials
passing points awarded following heats
top 10 in points after qualifying participate in a redraw for their A-main starting spot
11-20 in points after qualifying line up in A-main heads up by points
remaining drivers race the B-main with the top 4 finishers tagging the back of 30-lap A-main

May 28: Weikert Memorial Night 1, Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

(41 cars, Qualifying 30th, Heat 1st, B-main 3rd, A-main 17th)

The Risser Motorsports / TheTreeCenter.com / Victory Auto of Lewistown / EMM Sales & Service / Jake’s Golf Carts, No.45 signed in along with 40 other cars at ‘The Speed Palace’ for night number one of the Bob Weikert Memorial.

Jeff Halligan was the 22nd driver to hit the track for time trials. His best lap of 17.073 was a tick slower than the team was hoping for and it landed him 30th overall in the results.

The invert for the 10-lap heat races put Halligan on the pole of the second heat. Jeff led flag-to-flag, winning the heat over Chris Windom by 0.533 seconds. Normally a heat win would be a ticket to the show but in the Weikert format it simply earns points.

Halligan’s point total following the heat was good, but not good enough to lock into the A-main. Instead, he started 6th in the 12-lap B-main and would have to race his way in by finishing in the top four.

Halligan fought hard to get into the 4th spot by lap 7, then grabbed some insurance by capturing 3rd on a lap 9 restart. The 3rd place finish gave the Risser Motorsports entry the 23rd starting spot in the night one finale.

In the 30-lap feature event, Halligan wasn’t able to make gains during the first half of the event but eventually slid his way inside the top-20 to a 17th place finish.

Following racing action, Halligan was awarded the Carquest Perseverance award by the All Star Circuit of Champions.

May 29: Weikert Memorial Night 2, Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

(44 cars, Qualifying 14th, Heat 1st, A-main 3rd)

Jeff and the Risser Motorsports team made the 90 minute trip back to their shop after Saturday night’s race and made the decision to change engines. An engine change would mean going into Sunday’s race with a bit of an unknown, but they knew they needed to take the risk because the one they had in was just off somehow. That was a mystery they would have to investigate further later, but for now the goal was to make sure they gave themselves their best shot at winning the Weikert Memorial.

The car count increased to 44 for Sunday’s show but the format remained the same. Two things are required for a team to position itself near the front of the main event field with a shot at winning: a qualifying lap in the top third of the field and passing multiple cars in the heat race. Any team who can even do one of those two things puts themselves in a decent position for the night.

Halligan received some early feedback on the engine change by way of his qualifying laps. He was the 41st car to hit the track. A dirt track dries out and loses grip as laps are run on it, so going out late in a single-flight time trial format is usually a prescription for a poor lap. It can be a difficult obstacle to overcome.

Not this time. Halligan ripped off a lap of 16.933, ranking him 14th quickest overall. Goal number one, complete.

The next step would be to move forward from his 5th starting spot in heat number two. Halfway through the 10-lap race, Halligan had gained one spot and sat in 4th. Then he caught fire, figuratively.

Halligan stormed to the lead on lap seven and held on for the win, earning the maximum points available to him. Goal number two, complete.

Halligan was now 4th in the overall point standings for the night and was locked into the redraw for one of the top-10 starting spots in the prestigious Weikert Memorial main event.

“We just bought this motor from (Mark) Coldren on Wednesday and put it in at 4am this morning.“, Halligan shared during his post-race interview on FloRacing.

It had been a late night following Saturday’s race. Halligan and the Risser Motorsports team traveled 90 minutes back to their shop, washed the car and changed the engine before getting some much needed rest for day number two of the Weikert Memorial.

The redraw turned up pill number five for Halligan, putting him inside row three for the 30-lap race. In the early going, he slipped back to 6th, then recovered to the 5th spot. He held that spot for nearly 20 laps. A caution with five laps remaining provided an opportunity.

In what seems to be becoming his trademark this season, Halligan saved his best for the closing laps. He restarted 5th with five laps remaining and drove into 4th one lap later.

Carrying a ton of momentum, Halligan dove under Tyler Courtney to claim 3rd with three laps remaining. With a head of steam, Halligan pulled alongside Brent Marks for 2nd but couldn’t get clear of the No.19m and had to fall in line behind him for one final shot. He was unable to mount another challenge and finished 0.807 seconds behind Marks on the podium in 3rd spot.

In honor of Bob Weikert, Jackson Motorplex (MN) and Huset’s Speedway (SD) had added $5,000 to the prize money for both the 2nd and 3rd place finishers, giving Jeff Halligan and the Risser Motorsports team an $8,300 pay day.

“I went for clean air in the middle on that restart and started making up ground, so I thought I’m just gonna stay here.”, Halligan explained of the late surge. “I have to thank Panther Chassis. This is kind of a new car in 410 racing. We’ve been working on it trying to get it a little better and I think we’re getting there.”

“All year long we’ve been really good late in races, which you obviously want to do, but we need to figure out how to get a little better earlier in the night too.“, Halligan said.

May 29: Completion of May 21st A-main, Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

(34 cars, Qualifying 3rd Group C, Heat 2n, A-main 4th)

The May 21st feature event that was suspended with 8 laps complete, was resumed following the Weikert Memorial. Jeff Halligan restarted 4th behind Justin Whittall, Brent Marks and Logan Wagner.

The final 17 laps were relatively uneventful. Halligan held his ground but was unable to advance. He went on to finish 4th behind Logan Wagner, Brent Marks, and Dylan Cisney, logging a second top-5 finish in the span of just over an hour.

Up Next

Halligan and the Risser Motorsports team will be back at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, June 4th looking to grab their first checkered flag of 2022.

Willie Croft Stays Hot; Collects First Win of Season and Three Top-5’s During Northwest Swing

PETERSEN MEDIA- Using the momentum from his runner up finish at Petaluma Speedway two weekends ago, Willie Croft had a great showing in the Northwest with the King of the West Series that was highlighted by his first win of the season on Friday night in Lebanon, OR.

“It was a really fun trip, and we ran really well during all three nights,” Willie Croft said. “It was great to get a win on Friday night and give us some confidence with a ton of big shows on the horizon.”

Last Thursday the trip kicked off as the series checked in at Southern Oregon Speedway in Medford, OR. Having an all-around strong night at the track, Croft would cap the opener with his second consecutive podium with the series as he pocketed a third-place finish.

The scene shifted to Lebanon, OR on Friday night where Croft would get off to a bit of a slow start to his standards as he timed the Holey Smokes BBQ/Rudeen/Amerikote backed No. 29 mount in fifth fastest in time trials.

Running third in his heat race, Croft would advance to the Dash where his win put him on the front row of the 30-lap feature event.

From the pole, Croft was extremely strong as he worked the low groove of the speedway. Hitting his marks lap after lap, the Colfax, CA driver would not be denied. Leading flag to flag, Croft was able to cruise to his first win of the 2022 season.

Mother Nature wreaked havoc on Saturday’s show in Elma, WA, but the weather broke on Sunday and let the series, and Croft, get in one final race of their first Northwest swing of the season.

Timing in ninth fastest in time trials, ‘Double Down’ raced to a fourth-place finish in heat race competition and resulted in him lining up seventh on the starting grid for one final feature event.

On a slick racing surface, Croft would make a couple of moves early to work his way into the Top-Five.

With passing tough as the leaders got stretched out, Croft was able to stay solidly in the top-five, as he closed the busy trip out with his third Top-5, which gives him four consecutive with the Series as the scene shift backs to California starting next week.

“Thanks to Zac for being able to make the trip up with me, as well as everyone that was able to lend us a hand at times and make this all possible,” Willie Croft said. “Thanks to everyone involved that added some financial assistance to the trip and helped cut some of the cost down to all of the teams.”

Willie Croft Racing would like to thank Holey Smokes BBQ, Rudeen, Amerikote, SCI, Brown and Miller, FK Rod Ends, Factory Kahne, Schoenfeld, Team Simpson, Stilo, Smith Precision Products, Kaeding Performance, AL Drivelines, XYZ, Vortex Wings, DoTerra and GUTS for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-12, Wins-1, Top 5’s-6, Top 10’s-8.

ON TAP: Willie Croft returns to action on June 11th at Placerville Speedway for the Dave Bradway Jr Memorial.

Kerry Madsen Picks Up Pair of Runner Up Finishes at Knoxville and Huset’s

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to action in the Midwest over the Memorial Day Weekend, Kerry Madsen and the Roth Motorsports team performed very well as Madsen recorded second place finishes at both Knoxville Raceway and Huset’s Speedway.

“We would have loved to have been one spot better both nights, but I was happy to be in the mix at both Knoxville Raceway and Huset’s Speedway,” Kerry Madsen said. “We got a little late on Saturday which cost us in traffic, and on Sunday Timms let it all hang out on the last lap and he beat us to the line.”

Checking back in at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday night, Madsen timed the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co. backed no. 83 in sixth fastest amongst the 27 drivers packed into the pit area.

Lining up fifth in his heat race, ‘The Mad Man’ was able to tally valuable points as he raced his way forward to a third-place finish.

When points were tallied, Madsen put his TRD powered entry on the pole of the 20-lap feature event as he looked for his first win of the season aboard the famed Roth Motorsports car.

As the green flag waived, Madsen was hard on the throttle as he jumped out to the early lead and began to work around the famed ½ mile. With Austin McCarl in tow, Madsen was very quick as lapped traffic became a factor in just seven laps.

Getting in to traffic, Madsen’s pace would slow and it allowed McCarl to begin applying pressure. Able to fend of McCarl, Madsen continued to lead the way though traffic would thicken and make things more challenging.

Changing his line trying to allude the slower cars, Madsen would see McCarl sneak past with just three laps left in the race. Giving chase over the last three circuits, Madsen would be unable to reclaim the lead as he capped his night off with a second place finish.

Sunday night the scene shifted to Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, SD for what was scheduled to be the first of two nights at the bullring.

Turning in another strong qualifying effort, Madsen would earn Fast Time honors as he bested the 31-car field.

Running second in his heat race, the redraw put the St Marys, NSW native on the pole of the 25-lap feature for the second night in a row.

Just as he did on Saturday night, Madsen jumped out to the early lead as he looked to improve on his Knoxville finish from the night prior.

Setting a torrid pace around the bullring, things would get interesting in the closing laps of the feature as Ryan Timms reeled in the leader as he again navigated traffic.

As Madsen took the white flag, Timms let in all hang out as he made final bid stick in the final set of corners as he narrowly beat Madsen back to the line.

“I really want to thank Dennis and Teresa Roth for continuing to support our race team and let us hit some cool races all over the country,” Kerry Madsen said. “Bummer with how this weekend ended, but we are starting to really show some speed and hopefully we can get a win for him on Hall of Fame night.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, Jason, Tara, And Cole Roth Cattle Co., Roth Investments, Speedway Engines, Toyota, TRD, Mobil1, FK Rod Ends, Vahlco Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Smith Titanium for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-14, Wins-0, Top 5’s-4, Top-10’s-9

ON TAP: Roth Motorsports and Kerry Madsen will be back at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday night and will travel to Huset’s Speedway on Sunday to battle the World of Outlaws.

Daniel Whitley Dominates at Stockton For Second Consecutive Win with Hunt Series

(PETERSEN MEDIA-Stockton, CA)- After an early miscue cost him dearly on the track, Daniel Whitely recovered well as he would race his way back to the point and pick up his second consecutive win in dominating at fashion on Saturday night in Stockton, CA.

While Shawn Arriaga led the field to green and held on to the early lead, a bobble in turn one by Whitley would see him lose several spots on the track.

Able to gather his machine back up, Whitely began his pursuit to the front before a yellow flew and bunched the field back up. The restart would be just what Whitely needed as he made a couple of swift moves in turns one and two get out front and simply check out.

On this night the only thing that slowed Whitley were caution flags, but with each restart he would waste no time in leaving the field in his wake as he went on to pick up the win over Arriaga, Josh Young, Jake Morgan, and Shawn Jones by over a straight away.

With 28 cars checked in for the Memorial Day Weekend event, Arriaga got things kicked off by earning the Dependable Crane Fast Time Award.

Benic Enterprises Heat No. 1 went to Shane Hopkins, Shawn Jones won Brown and Miller Heat No. 2, Nick Robfogel took top honors in King Racing Products Heat No. 3, while Jake Morgan won Santomauro Race Products Heat No. 4.

Heath Holdsclaw was the Santomauro Race Products Hard Charger, while Jordan Garretson was the unlucky recipient of the Matt Streeter Racing Hard Luck Award.

Mark Hanson finished 15th in the A and took home the BR Motorsports P.15 Award, while Jarrett Soares was awarded the Arbo-Tec Best Presenting Feature Car, Josh Young earned the Vahlco Wheels Cool Move of the Night.

Austin Hartmann finds speed, makes first dash
in IRA Rice Lake-141 twin bill

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 1, 2022 – With just a handful of races to his credit in the seat of 410 Winged Sprint Car, 2022 Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association rookie contender, Austin Hartman keyed into some considerable speed behind the wheel of his 87A Hartmann Racing machine, during an IRA Memorial Day weekend doubleheader at Rice Lake Speedway in Rice Lake, Wis. on Saturday, May 28 and 141 Speedway in Francis Creek, Wis. on Sunday, May 29.

On Saturday, May 28, Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing team made the long trek to Northwest Wisconsin for the IRA’s return to the third-mile semi-banked Rice Lake Speedway for the first time in several years.

Hartmann opened the night by qualifying 12th in the 20-car field with a lap of 14.181 seconds. After lining up the pole of the third eight-lap IRA heat race, Hartmann placed fourth in the race to earn the 12th starting spot in the 30-lap main event.

The third-year Plymouth, Wis. Sprint Car driver drove a steady race in just his third IRA A main in a 410 Sprint Car en route to an IRA career-best 13th place finish in a race won by Scotty Neitzel.

“Pulling into Rice Lake Speedway was like going to SK Speedway I'd say, very comparable,” Hartmann said. “Although I never ran there, I was able to kind of get an idea for what to do. We made very few changes throughout the night, and just made small adjustments as I was comfortable with the car right away in qualifying. It took rubber about midway through the night and once I found that, we were fast.”

On Sunday, May 29, Hartmann was quick out of the box as he turned in the 11th fastest qualifying lap in the 27-car field with a lap of 11.318 seconds. After lining up on the pole of the second eight-lap IRA heat race, Hartmann placed fourth to earn a direct transfer spot to the A main and his first-career berth in the IRA dash field.

After drawing the pole for the second four-lap IRA dash, Hartmann placed fourth to gain the eighth starting spot in the 30-lap IRA main event.

Hartmann held steady in the front half of the field in the early going of the A main by testing multiple lines on the dry and dusty track surface. After dropping to 18th, the lone caution flag of the race appeared on lap 16 for a spin involving Kyle Schuett. Hartmann then held on during the non-stop second half of the race to finish 24th.

“What can I say about 141 Speedway? - I love that place,” Hartmann said. “I was excited for that one, but I didn't quite expect to have the night we had. We found speed and I got more comfortable in the car. As for the feature, we threw some things at the car to try out and let's just say we're going mark those as ‘no good.’ We couldn't find forward bite anywhere on the racing surface.”

Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing team will continue their rookie campaign with the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series this Saturday, June 4 at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis.

“The team is excited to get back to Wilmot, which is another track where we're pretty decent,” Hartmann said. “We will build off the ups and downs of this past weekend and get after it at Wilmot Raceway.”

WESTERN PA SPRINT SPEEDWEEK CROSSES THE BORDER TO SHARON ON SATURDAY; "410" SPRINTS, RUSH SPRINTS, RUSH SPORTSMAN MODS & ECONO MODS ON TAP

June 1, 2022

By Mike Leone


(Hartford, OH)…After ending Mother Nature's four-race win streak last Saturday night by hosting the World of Outlaws CASE Construction Late Model event, Sharon Speedway will look to complete its second straight event this Saturday night (June 4). A sunny and 70-degree day is forecasted for the all open wheel show that includes Western PA Speedweek for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars, Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars, HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and the Whelen Econo Mods. Warmups will begin at 6:30 followed by qualifying and racing.

Cap Henry opened the season on April 30 winning the $6,500 All Star show for his second career Sharon win. Since then Mother Nature wiped out the "Super Series" Sprint Car events on May 7 and May 14 as well as the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car show on May 21.

Hopefully the bad weather is behind us as Sharon welcomes in round four of the revived Western PA Speedweek. Last year, central Pennsylvania invader Ryan Smith hounded race-long leader Carl Bowser before making the winning pass with six laps to go for his first career Sharon win. A big field of 38 cars were on hand. Smith also won at Lernerville to earn the Western PA Speedweek title and will look to defend that crown once again this week.

Other invaders expected to take on the regional talent include last year's Tri-City Speedweek winner, Bradley Howard, central Pa. racer Anthony Fiore, New York driver Denny Peebles, and Texas' Josh Baughman- a teammate of third generation Sprint Car racer Sye Lynch.

Western PA Speedweek features an $11,000 point fund with $3,000 going to the champion. The fastest qualifier will receive $250 from Knox Bakery. The hard charger will receive $200 from Knox Bakery. There will also be a $50 hard luck award, and one driver that has maintained perfect attendance in Speedweek will receive a free right rear tire.

The 2021 season at Sharon started off with nine different winners in the first nine "410" Sprint Car races before Bowser became the first repeat winner with the first two victories of his Sharon career. Bowser's teammate, George Hobaugh, was one of the 2021 winners and led the first 28 laps of the April 30 feature in search of his first career All Star win before fading to fifth at the finish. Like Bowser, Hobaugh also owns two career Sharon victories. Dave Blaney's 34 "410" victories at Sharon are the most amongst active racers.

The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Sprint Car Series has only raced twice this year around the circuit with Blaze Myers winning the opener at Tyler County Speedway back on April 23 and Gale Ruth, Jr. at Dog Hollow on May 21. The RUSH Sprints will battle for a $20,000 Weekly Series Championship presented by Equipment Rental Options with $5,000 going to the 2022 champion.

For the second straight year, Terry Bowser Excavating is presenting all of the RUSH Sprint Car events at Sharon in 2022. There have been 17 RUSH Sprint Car events completed all-time at Sharon with nine different winners. Three-time Series Champion, Chad Ruhlman, leads the way with seven victories. Jarod Larson and Nolan Groves are two-time winners, while Andy Feil, Brian Ruhlman, Brian Woodhall, Jeremy Weaver, Rod George, and Steve Pedley each have one feature win to their credit.

The HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds finally ran their first Sharon show of the season last Saturday night and it was Tony Tatgenhorst winning the $700 special for his first career Sharon victory. This year is the ninth year of existence for the division, which has averaged over a full field of cars annually. If there are 24 or more cars, the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will compete for $550 to-win, $85 to-start this year.

With two-time Series Champion, Chas Wolbert, moving on to Big-Block Modifieds this year, the division is wide open. There have already been four different winners in four races around the circuit for the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, who battle for the $3,500 to-win Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly Series Championship. Saturday's event is also part of the Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series Championship between Raceway 7 and Sharon's events.

The Whelen Econo Mods round out the four-division show on Saturday night. The Econo Mods joined the All Star Sprints at the April 30 opener, and it was Jeremy Double earning his 17th career win; however, haven't been able to compete since. Double will look to go two-for-two on Saturday and inch closer to Brandon Blackshear's all-time leading total of 21 wins in the division. If there are 24 or more cars, the Econo Mods will compete for $450 to-win, $80 to-start in 2022.

Summit Racing Equipment will present the hard charger award on Saturday night to the Econo Mod division. The driver that passes the most cars in the feature will receive a $100 Summit gift card. In the event of a tie, the tiebreaker will be the driver that finished highest in the feature.

There is no Sharon registration fee. One-way driver radios are mandatory; channel 454.000. AMB/MyLaps transponders are required; rentals available for $25. If you have yet to register for the 2022 season, please bring the registration form with you completed http://sharonspeedway.myracepass.com/downloads/get.aspx?i=713060

Fans can not only experience viewing from the frontstretch and backstretch grandstands, but also from the infield fan zone, which includes concessions and restrooms. Sharon is the only track in the area to have viewing from the unique infield perspective. There will be times throughout the night when fans can cross on the frontstretch back and forth.

The pits will be open throughout the afternoon with passes going on sale at 4 p.m., while general admission opens at 5. Pill draw for the "410" Sprints will close at 6 p.m. with the other divisions at 6:15. Motor heat for the Sprints will be at 6:15 p.m. Warmups for the "410" Sprints will be at 6:30 followed by group qualifying and racing.

Grandstand/fan zone admission for those 14 and over is $20. Patio seating upgrades are just $10 and fan suite seating upgrades are just $20 over the cost of general admission. These can be upgraded on race night at the track office. As always, children under 14 and parking are always FREE. Pit passes are $35. As a reminder, coolers nor outside food or beverages are not permitted.

Western PA Speedweek "410" Sprint Car Payoff: 1. $3,000 2. $1,500 3. $1,000 4. $700 5. $650 6. $600 7. $550 8. $500 9. $450 10. $400 11. $390 12. $380 13. $370 14. $360 15. $350 16. $340 17. $330 18. $320 19. $310 20-24. $300. Tow/Non-Qualifiers $100.
There will be no racing next Saturday night (June 11); however, Ohio Speedweek for the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars will make its annual stop at Sharon on Tuesday, June 14 for a $6,000 to-win event along with the Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars.

Tri-City Raceway Park Ready to Try Again Sunday, W. PA. Sprint Speedweek and More on Tap

(Franklin, PA May 31, 2022): Tri-City Raceway Park will be ready to start the 2022 racing season with a big event on June 5: the finale of the Western Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek. “The extended forecast is looking favorable, so we are hoping for a great turn-out of competitors and fans for this race. It is one of the cornerstones of our schedule,” said track owner Merle Black. Last year, when the mini-series was revived by former Tri-City official Tyler Beichner, racers from Central Pennsylvania and even further away came in to compete against the local favorites. The victory went to one of the invaders, Bobby Howard, and the drivers who race under the banner of Shawgo Real Estate, LLC are looking to even up the score. Leading the local contingent will be none other than Brandon Matus, who clinched his first track championship in thrilling fashion in 2021. Multi-time track champion Jack Sodeman, Jr. will be on hand, along with third generation racer Sye Lynch. Many other talents, including Carl Bowser, A.J. Flick, and Brent Matus, are expected. Also on the card will be the 358 Modifieds, now racing for the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group championship. Can Jeremiah Shingledecker pick up where he left off? He dominated the action on the big, racy oval last season. Jimmy Holden, Kevin Hoffman, Lonny Riggs, and many more will try to turn the tables on him.

Justin Bailey will be ready to resume his battle with Dalton Speer in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stock ranks. More than two dozen competitors attended most of the races last year, and with a delayed start to the 2022 season, even more are expected. The RUSH Sprint Cars will also be on hand. These cars are very evenly matched because they must all run the same, economical engine and shock packages. Fans will enjoy the tough competition provided by these wingless warriors. Although this will be a special race, regular event ticket pricing will apply. So, adults (ages 16 to 62) will be admitted for $15, and seniors (ages 62 and up) will be admitted for $13. Student tickets (for those aged 10 to 16) will be $10. Children (up to age 10) will be admitted for free. The Family Pass will be $45, and that will be good for two adults of any age and two students. Pit Passes will be $30. Gates will open at 2 p.m. for the competitors, and 4 p.m. for the spectators. Racing will begin at 6 p.m. If you cannot make it to the track this week for the season opener, Sunday Thunder programs will be held on June 12 and 19. The RUSH Sprints will not be in action on those dates. Instead, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks will be part of the programs. Watch the website and social media platforms for any changes. Further information about Tri-City Raceway Park can be obtained by calling the track office at 724-967-4601, or by e-mailing the office at tricityracewaypark2020@gmail.com. Or, you can check the web at Tri-CityRacewayPark.com, or the Facebook page at Tri City Raceway Park. Tri-City Raceway Park is located just a few miles north of Franklin, PA, at 3430 State Route 417 in Oakland Township.

 

 

Kody Hartlaub Matches Season Best 2nd Place 358 Sprint Finish at Lincoln; 410 Opportunity On Deck

Team Expands 358 Schedule for Balance of 2022

Abbottstown, PA – June 1st, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Kody Hartlaub has been the model of consistency thus far in 2022. And he’s no one-trick pony.

He has competed at three different tracks and has recorded 8 top-10’s in 9 outings. At this point in the season, the only box left to check is a victory. That can’t be far away when a team is this steady.

May 28: Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

(35 cars, Heat 1st, A-main 2nd)

Kody Hartlaub Racing is in the midst of a battle for the top spot in the season championship points at Lincoln Speedway. Steve Owings held the top spot by 90 points over Hartlaub entering competition Saturday night.

The Brewer Home Improvements / Moose Blocks / Smith Titanium / SRR Engines / Siegel Racing / T and N Solutions / Jason Emlet Iron Valley Real Estate / Bigham Appraisals / Pretzel Boy / HAAS Shocks / C.H. Folk & Son Feeds / Chop Designs / Herr Electric, Kody Hartlaub Racing No.2 was among 35 entries for the Memorial Day Weekend event.

The sizable field was divided into five heats by pill draw. The top four finishers from each race would transfer to the A-main, with the top two finishers being handicapped to start the 20-lap main event. The starting field for the finale would be rounded out with the top four finishers from the B-main.

Hartlaub had the pole for heat number one, his first front row starting spot of the season. He led the 10-lap qualifying race wire-to-wire over Steve Owings.

With the pair at the top of the point standings, Hartlaub and Owings assumed the 8th and 9th starting spots for the feature event. Owings slipped by Hartlaub on the opening lap when the outside line didn’t take off as quickly as the inside line. Hartlaub pursued the No.35 as the pair charged toward the front of the field.

Hartlaub reached 4th by lap three, then moved into the 2nd spot behind Owings on lap 7 and went to work to get to the point. It wasn’t to be on this night, but Hartlaub brought home his second runner-up finish of the season to close out a very solid night.

“I tried everything to get to Steve (Owings), especially on those two late restarts, but just couldn’t quite get to him. He was better than me in (turns) one and two. Maybe if I would’ve gotten to the front first, we could’ve held him off.“, Hartlaub said after the race.

With a win awarding 300 points and 2nd place 250, plus all teams being awarded 50 show-up points, Owings extended his point lead over Hartlaub despite the East Berlin, PA driver’s great run.

“We are where we want to be. We just don’t have a win yet. The only night we missed the top ten was when we got involved in a wreck, but we still came back to finish 12th that night. We’ve been racing more and venturing to new tracks. That is helping us gain experience. Experience is what enables teams to turn bad situations into positives.“, Hartlaub commented.

410 Sprint Opportunity

With a two-week break in their 358 sprint car schedule, Kody Hartlaub Racing will venture into the 410 sprint car world this Saturday night, June 4th, at Lincoln Speedway for the Steve Smith Tribute race, which will award the winner with $19,000 in honor of the Hall of Fame driver’s famous No.19.

Hartlaub has made a couple previous appearances in a 410 sprint car. In 2021 he was at the wheel of another team’s car just to get a little seat time, but this will be his first venture in his own, more familiar equipment.

“I owe a huge thanks to MooseBlocks.com for arranging this opportunity for me to compete with the 410’s in the Steve Smith Tribute race with one of Shark Racing’s Newman’s Racing Engines under the hood. My thanks to Shark Racing as well for that. I really wanted to support the race because Stevie and I are friends and Smith Titanium helps us out a lot. It means a lot to me to be able to compete in that race. We have zero expectations but we are sure going to try our hardest.“, an appreciative Hartlaub said.

Schedule Expansion, Plus A Look Back

It’s been a busy few weeks for Hartlaub. Leading up to last Saturday night, he competed in events at Path Valley Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway, and Lincoln Speedway. No matter where he goes this season, he has been consistently near the front.

That’s the sign of a strong team that is on the verge of breaking through.

Let’s take a quick look back and learn how Hartlaub Racing’s schedule has expanded for the balance of 2022.

May 14: Path Valley Speedway / Spring Run, PA

(16 cars, Heat 4th, A-main 4th)

To improve as a driver and a team, you need to race and you need to face different tracks and challenges. With that in mind, Kody Hartlaub Racing ventured to Path Valley Speedway on May 14th. They were among 16 teams to sign in for the 358 sprint car event on the high-banked quarter-mile Pennsylvania oval.

Lineups for two heats were set by random draw and all cars would qualify for the 30-lap feature event. Hartlaub was able to gain one spot in his heat race, advancing from his 5th starting spot to finish 4th.

Hartlaub lined up 7th for the A-main but slipped to 8th on the opening lap. A red flag on lap two set up a restart that Kody capitalized on, surging into 6th as the field went back to green.

As a result of some rain earlier in the evening, the track had a lot of grip and the field was ‘hammer down’, ripping off 28 non-stop, green flag laps after the restart. Hartlaub was able to track down a couple more competitors before the check checkered flag fell. As the race drew to a close, he was pushing for a spot on the podium by ran out of time and finished 4th.

“We were a little tight in the heat race because we were expecting the track to be a little drier. One spot better in the heat race would’ve meant one row closer the front for the feature. That would’ve helped, but we learned a lot, had a good run and put it in the trailer in one piece. That’s what we came here to do.“, Hartlaub said after the race.

May 20: Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

(27 cars, Heat 5th, A-main 10th)

Untimely Spring precipitation in Central Pennsylvania had erased the first three attempts by Williams Grove Speedway to get the 358 sprint car portion of their schedule started this season. Kody Hartlaub Racing already had plans to compete at ‘The Grove’ on June 10th & July 23rd in two Summer Series events, so with only a half-dozen other 358 sprint car events remaining on the schedule, the team made the decision to add all the remaining shows at the Mechanicsburg, PA oval to their schedule and compete in the season points championship.

“We have our second motor ready now, so with the delayed start to the 358 season here (at Williams Grove), we decided we were in a position to race all the shows here without risking our season at Lincoln.“, Hartlaub shared.

Three 8-lap heats were set up by pill draw for the 27 entries in the pits Friday night, May 20th. The top six finishers in each transferred directly to the A-main. Hartlaub started and finished 5th in heat number three, one spot out of the redraw.

Hartlaub started 15th in the 20-lap feature event and went to work finding the fastest way around the famous, paper-clip shaped oval. He gradually worked his way forward and into the top ten as the race drew to a close. Hartlaub’s progress ended there and he logged a 10th place finish.

“I’ve been here three or four times before and was never able to get a complete night in. We would start out good, then something would always happen. We would either have mechanical issues or get rained out. It was nice to get a full night in and really be able to get seat time. The team and I learned a lot tonight.“

May 21: Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

(34 cars, Heat 3rd, A-main 6th)

On May 21st, Kody Hartlaub Racing returned to their home track, Lincoln Speedway, for the first of two Summer Series events this season. The always popular Summer Series events for the 358 sprint cars draw competitive fields wherever they are held.

At ‘The Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway as it’s known, 34 cars registered for competition and drew for their starting spot in one of the four heats. The top five finishers in each 10-lap qualifier would transfer to the A-main, with the top three participating in a redraw for the top twelve starting spots.

Hartlaub started inside row two in heat number two. His No.2 machine was a bit tight, but Hartlaub managed to hang on to finish 3rd and claim a spot in the redraw.

The redraw wasn’t quite as friendly to Hartlaub. He would have his work cut out for him to get to the front after pulling the 10th starting spot.

Hartlaub battled throughout the 25-lap main event, finding a way forward as he has done all season. On this night he managed a +4, finishing in the 6th position.

“We finally got a good draw for our heat race and made the feature redraw, but our redraw wasn’t so good. What do you do; that’s part of it.“, Hartlaub commented with a grin and a shrug.

“We can only worry about the things we can control, and that’s what we’re doing. We’re running pretty well and I’m continuing to learn and make better decisions behind the wheel.”

Up Next

Following his 2022 410 sprint debut this weekend, Hartlaub will return to 358 sprint car action with races on June 10th at Williams Grove Speedway and June 11th at Lincoln Speedway.

Big Game Motorsports Earns Top 10 at Atomic and Top Five at Lawrenceburg

Inside Line Promotions - LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. (June 1, 2022) - David Gravel posted a pair of top 10s last weekend during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition.

The Big Game Motorsports driver finished seventh on Saturday at Atomic Speedway before advancing to a fourth-place result on Monday at Lawrenceburg Speedway. The two top 10s give Gravel 19 during World of Outlaws action this season, which is the second most of any driver. His 12 top fives is tied for second.

Memorial Day Weekend began on Saturday at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio, where Gravel timed in fifth quickest in his group. He then finished where he started - third - in a heat race to lock into the 10th starting position in the A Main.

"I could have been a little more aggressive in qualifying and committed to the top in turns three and four," he said. "We also tried a new muffler that didn't work out as well so I think with that and if a couple of decisions on my part were different we'd have been better in qualifying. That put us starting third in our heat race. I wasn't too great, but the second-place guy blew a tire. I had a shot to make the dash and didn't get the job done. I should have committed to the outside instead of sliding him and we ended up third.

"The car fired off really good on the initial start of the feature and I was able to get to sixth. As the laps went on we faded and the car lost the handling. We fell back one spot to seventh. Maybe if we had 10 restarts we could have battled up for a shot at a podium, but the long runs hurt us."

The team returned to action on Monday at Lawrenceburg Speedway, where Gravel qualified third quickest in his group. A heat race victory advanced Gravel into the dash, but he drew a starting spot in the final row for the fifth straight time. A seventh-place result in the dash started the Big Game Motorsports No. 2 on the inside of the fourth row in the main event.

"We had a couple of lucky breaks with two guys dropping out, but I felt we had a competitive race car and were just as fast as everybody," Gravel said. "That was a good feeling. At one point I was side by side with Sheldon (Haudenschild) and the caution came out. He was able to have the outside on the restart and he ends up winning the race. If I had nosed him out by a couple of inches that could have been me. Later in the race I tried to pass Logan (Schuchart) for second and that cost me with (Kyle) Larson passing me. We fought and battled. After the A Main we were happy with the speed and race car we had."

Gravel invades the Dakotas this weekend with races on Friday at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D., during the 1st Leg of the Northern Tour and Sunday at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., during the Ace Ready Mix and Myrl & Roy's presents the World of Outlaws.

"River Cities is a place I've been pretty solid at and I've been able to win there one time," he said. "I feel we have a good handle on the place. They pack the stands and the fans are very cool. And with everything that's happened with the bad storm at Huset's, it's admirable for them to keep going with the event. We had good success at Huset's last year. Hopefully we can have a good showing at a home track of ours and we can make the boss happy."
