Setters Highlights Season With Championship, Four Wins and Career-Best Runs During Big Events

Inside Line Promotions - SPIRIT LAKE, Idaho (Sept. 21, 2021) - The 2021 season was mission accomplished for James Setters.

The first objective was to win another Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series championship, which Setters was able to do in the Mike Quigley owned No. 2. It marked their third straight title together.

Setters also captured four of the six series races and he finished in the runner-up position during the other two events. He was victorious during his heat race at all six series shows.

"It was nice to continue to win, especially with some new drivers running the series," he said. "Our main goal was to get the championship again and we were able to do that and win a few races along the way so we're happy."

Setters was successful in his family owned sprint car as well, capturing career-best results during Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition - a sixth-place run during the Grizzly Nationals at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont. - and ASCS Frontier Region action - a runner-up result at Gallatin Speedway.

Additionally, Setters finished in the top 10 of the Western Sprint Tour Speedweek standings following a successful five-race stint during the spectacle.

"We didn't get to run as much as we wanted to this year, but we made the most of it," he said. "It's definitely nice running against the best competition. When you run the national shows everybody is fast and you learn a lot.

"I want to thank Mike for the opportunity to drive for him as well as the sponsors who support me. I'm really looking forward to getting back to racing next year and hopefully competing for another championship and continuing to get better as a driver."

Wilson Sweeps Weekend to Earn First 410 Sprint Car Win in More Than Five Years

Inside Line Promotions - FREMONT, Ohio (Sept. 21, 2021) - Confidence has been brewing throughout the last month for Greg Wilson, who has been piecing together successful outings since teaming up with Seeling Motorsports.

If there was any doubt remaining, the Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics backed competitor burned it last weekend when he swept a pair of FAST on Dirt Winged 410 Sprint Cars shows in his home state of Ohio.

"Honestly, almost part of it doesn't seem like it happened," he said. "The thing that's been a lot different is I'm going to races with a different perspective and a drive to get to the point to compete for wins. The last month things were trending in the right direction.

"To go Friday and win, to get the monkey off your back, was big and then you're rolling into Fremont with more confidence. It's a place where Andy (Potter) has had fast race cars and I've been good. You think if you are as good as you were the night before you should have a shot. Then to pull it off from 11th was awesome. It's huge for my confidence and was cool to get my wife and girls, who are such a huge part of my career, some wins and to see those smiles on their faces was priceless."

Not only did Wilson win both features, his triumph on Friday at Moler Raceway Park in Williamsburg was his first during 410ci winged sprint car action since May 2016. Approximately 24 hours later he returned to Victory Lane at Fremont Speedway.

"From my standpoint Friday night was cool because it got the monkey off our back," he said. "It was a young guys race track. It was tiny, rough and wet. You had to run four wheels above the cushion. All the things people think I can't or wouldn't do. It was cool to get the job done and race with Cole Macedo, who is a talented and young guy coming up. Then Fremont is 40 minutes from my race shop. I'm an Ohio guy so it's always been one of the mainstays in terms of 410 tracks. I've been fortunate to have a good fanbase. Andy is from Fremont and I know how much that means to him. With all of that combined and coming from 11th, for multiple reasons it was a big shot in the arm."

Wilson opened the weekend by qualifying third quickest in his group at Moler Raceway Park. A heat race win preceded Wilson lining up on the outside of the third row in the main event.

"The cool part was we were a little better at the beginning of the race than I anticipated," he said. "We've been good from the middle of races on lately. The way the track was it wasn't something we've raced on much. We got a good start and up to fifth right away. We picked one off and were cruising in fourth. We got into traffic and got another spot. We had a restart and I got another spot. I think I was riding third and we got to traffic again. I passed Cale Conley and Cole was out a little bit, but I could see we could maneuver a little better. He was doing such a good job running where he was running and it was the line I needed to be in so you're probably going to have to do a dirty deal to pass him, which I'm not willing to do. When I got close I thought if I could show him my nose maybe that'd create an opportunity. I could tell he'd run it into turn three harder. All you can do is hope for a mistake at that point. Fortunately for us he made a bobble in turns three and four on the last lap and I made a really good lap and was able to get by for the win."

Saturday was another solid night from start to finish as Wilson timed in sixth quickest in his group. He gained two positions to place fourth in a heat race, which lined him up 11th in the main event.

"The first five laps I wasn't sure we'd be all that good," he said. "As we started going the track cleaned off a little bit and made it to where you could run multiple lanes. I kept changing my lane and bumping my wing back. Finally it started going. I got by two or three and the caution came out. We were sitting eighth or ninth. We fire off on the restart and I got three cars right away. We had another caution that got us bunched again. I got one more and then we ran quite a few laps and got another. When I saw five laps to go I got to second. Nate (Dussel) was almost a straightaway ahead of me. We were way better than I thought and the car came alive. We got to him with a lap and a half to go. We got into traffic and it was one of those deals it was better to be sitting in second. It played out perfectly. Sometimes you need some racing luck and we got a little bit. I could go through the middle and then whether you needed to cut to the bottom or go right to the cushion I could do that. I was hoping they would part and I could go right between them. The lapped car peeled to the bottom and Nate went to the cushion. I just drove right between them."

Wilson made a late-race pass for the second straight night to earn a trip into the Winner's Circle.

He rides the momentum into a pair of races at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, this weekend. Wilson will tackle the BeFour the Crowns Showdown with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Friday before running the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions portion of the Four Crown Nationals on Saturday.

"When you come off a weekend like we had you're a little more confident, but you also understand that the level of competition we're going to now and with so many things factoring into Eldora, you have work to do," he said. "We haven't been very good on the half-mile tracks yet. We're going with a better game plan. You want to go win, but right now I'd love to go make both races, run all the laps and have the ability to work on our half-mile stuff."

Sept. 17 - Moler Raceway Park in Williamsburg, Ohio - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 1 (6).

Amdahl Posts Top-10 Finish During Rapid Speedway Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa (Sept. 21, 2021) - Elliot Amdahl closed his 360ci sprint car season with a sixth-place finish last Saturday during the Rapid Speedway Nationals hosted by Rapid Speedway.

"I was pretty happy with a sixth-place finish," he said. "That track has been kind of tough for me. I think I was sixth there two or three times this year. That place is kind of my kryptonite."

The race was also the final points race for the Midwest Touring Sprint Series and Amdahl settled for fourth in the championship standings.

"We were hoping to finish third, but we fell just a bit short," he said. "But it was still a pretty good year for us, considering everything."

Saturday evening began on a positive note for Amdahl and car owner Steve Ziebarth before actual competition began.

"We were second quick in hot laps, which was good for us because we've been struggling to find speed there in the past," he said. "It was nice to be quick right off the bat."

Amdahl drew the pole starting position for his heat race.

"I got to racing with the guy who started on the outside of me for just a second and that allowed the guy who started fourth to get by me," he said. "The track was just one lane around the top. We stayed in second and made the feature redraw and drew the pole for the feature.

"The track slicked off a lot more in the feature than in previous races there. We knew it would be just a matter of time before the rubber settled in.

"We got a good start, but I made a mistake and Terry (McCarl) got around me. I stayed in third a while. We struggled to find forward bite early in the race because we didn't want to tighten the car too much with the rubber coming in later. I fell back to sixth and then the rubber came in. Then we were fast, but the track was one lane by then so it was too late to do much."

The sixth-place outing was Amdahl's 17th top 10 of the season.

He will wrap up the racing season in 410ci sprint car competition this Sunday at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., during the Championship Weekend with the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association.

"We haven't been able to race the 410 very much this year so I'm excited to get some more seat time," he said. "We struggled getting our motor to run last time so we're putting the car on a wheel dyno this week. We hope to go into Sunday with a full head of steam."

Kaleb Johnson Caps Season With Podium Finish at Rapid Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa (Sept. 21, 2021) - Kaleb Johnson wrapped up his racing season with a runner-up result with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series Saturday night at Rapid Speedway.

"We had a pretty good night," he said. "Maybe one of these days I'll win a race. I think we finished second four or five times this year."

Johnson began the Rapid Speedway Nationals slotted third in a solid heat race lineup.

"I think we were in the toughest heat of the night and I knew it wasn't going to be easy," he said. "I got a decent start and ran third most of the race before I was able to get by Jody Rosenboom with a lap or two left. That put us in the feature redraw."

Johnson pulled the No. 3 for his feature starting position.

"I knew it was going to be tough with Terry McCarl starting alongside," he said. "You know he's going to get a good start no matter what.

"We were able to get to second right away. Terry had a decent lead, but we were able to catch him in lapped traffic. The rubber came in around Lap 5 or Lap 6. I was able to get close to him a couple of times, but it would've been tough to pass him. He has the experience and he would've known what to do to prevent me from passing him, especially in the rubber."

Johnson's second-place showing was his eighth top five of the season.

He was also able to post a top-10 finish with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour a week ago Tuesday at Clay County Fair Speedway in Spencer, Iowa, where a poor draw got his night off to a challenging start.

"We drew the highest number so we had to start at the back of our heat race," he said. "We were able pass a couple of cars and that had us starting 11th in the feature.

"I got together with another car at the beginning of the race and it bent our frame. It was just a racing deal where both of us had nowhere to go. I didn't stop so I kept my spot on the restart. Once the race got going, we got kind of spaced out and it was tough to pass. Most of the cars were on the bottom of the track. I was able to pass one car before we had a caution for a green-white-checkered restart. I was able to get by Ryan Bickett for ninth after the restart, but I lost that on the last lap and finished 10 th."

Dover Entering Huset's Speedway Championship Weekend in Contention for Title

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 21, 2021) - Jack Dover is in position for a shot at the track championship at Huset's Speedway heading into Championship Weekend.

Dover and car owners Rick and Chris Bowers sit third in the championship standings - only 36 points out of the lead - entering a two-day Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association event this Saturday and Sunday at the oval in Brandon, S.D.

"I feel good," Dover said. "We've been really consistent all year and every time we go there we get better. I feel confident we can compete for first or second in the standings. It'd be cool to win it, but with Justin Henderson being up there and Carson McCarl second it's going to be hard. We'll just do our best and see how it plays out."

This is the first year since 2007 that Dover has raced 410ci sprint cars regularly, but that hasn't slowed him down. He scored his first career 410 win at the track during the most recent race and his seven top fives is tied for the third most in the division. Dover also has 11 top 10s - tied for the second most - and his average feature finish in weekly 410 races at Huset's Speedway is 5.46.

Dover is coming off a three-day weekend with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour as he tackled the 11th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Unfortunately, the event got off to a rough start last Thursday when a competitor ran into Dover midway through a heat race. The incident resulted in a crash that damaged his race car and Dover was sidelined for the remainder of the night.

"It broke the frame so we got the spare down," he said. "The car we pulled down is the one I ended last year with and ran the year before. I've always liked the way it reacted and felt comfortable with it. It sucks we wrecked a car, but we're back in a car I know works good."

That showed on Friday as Dover advanced from fifth to third place in a heat race and from fourth to second place in a qualifier. That ranked him sixth out of the 60-plus drivers and locked him into the sixth starting spot in the A Main.

"We fell back and went forward, then fell back and went forward," he said. "The track was really slick. I tried to tighten the car up as much as I ever had. I thought maybe we'd be too tight and we weren't tight enough. I just pulled the wing back and was trying all different sorts of lines. I finally found one that was the best and we stuck there. I was happy with our outcome."

Dover's fourth-place result was his 25th top five of the season.

The event concluded on Saturday with Dover winning a Last Chance Qualifier to transfer into the 10th starting position in the main event.

"I felt like we had a shot at being a top-five car," he said. "As soon as I got out there and did the warm-up lap, I knew right then we weren't going to be very good. I had the car too tight and then we had a shock go bad. We just kind of rode around there and tried to stay out of trouble. We did a couple of changes during a red and it helped a little, but with that shock being bad it really hurt us. I'd go into the corner and it'd jump on the right front. On that track it's something you don't want to have happen."

Dover was credited with a 16th-place finish.

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Rebound for Top 10 at Keller Auto Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - HANFORD, Calif. (Sept. 21, 2021) - David Gravel rallied from a late-race incident last Saturday to record his 53 rd top 10 during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition this season.

Gravel was in contention for a top five and potentially a podium during the Tom Tarlton Classic at Keller Auto Speedway when contact from another driver sent the Big Game Motorsports No. 2 spinning off the track in turn two.

"I slid up to pass a guy," he said. "He messed up on the cushion and tried to pass me back and drove over my right rear. It spun me around. I was definitely bummed. I was looking around a fifth-place finish. There were still quite a bit of people on the lead lap so we fell back to 16 th or 17th."

Gravel had been able to move forward all night, qualifying ninth quickest before advancing from third to second place in a heat race and from sixth to fifth place in the dash.

"I thought we qualified good for when we went out," he said. "The track kept getting faster and faster. That's part of the circumstances. To start third in the heat, we knew we had to get the job done early because of the way the track was. We were able to get a good jump and get in the dash. Drawing the No. 6 wasn't ideal, but we did what we could do. I felt okay in the dash. I felt better in the heat race though so we changed it up a little for the feature."

Gravel battled for fifth throughout the first two thirds of the main event before the contact resulted in a crash. He restarted behind the lead-lap drivers and rallied for a 10th-place result.

"We had quite a bit of damage," he said. "The right side board was crinkled up and the nose wing was pushed over. I didn't know what we'd have. We were able to pass some guys and at least salvage a decent finish. To run 10 th, we're not happy, but if that's the worst case scenario we'll take it and move on."

Gravel remains second in the World of Outlaws championship standings as the series returns east this weekend for races on Friday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the BeFour the Crowns Showdown and Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., during the Commonwealth Clash.

"I'm really looking forward to getting back to two of my favorite tracks," he said. "We're usually pretty good at Eldora and Lernerville is in my top two of tracks. I think most of the time it's pretty racy and you can run top to bottom."

Dominic Scelzi Salvages Sixth-Place Performance During World of Outlaws Show

Inside Line Promotions - HANFORD, Calif. (Sept. 21, 2021) - Dominic Scelzi earned his best finish of the season during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition last Saturday at the Tom Tarlton Classic hosted by Keller Auto Speedway.

Scelzi overcame a problem to start the night and he held on during late-race woes to score a sixth-place run, which marked his second top 10 in three starts with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt' this season.

"I'm super happy with our speed, but disappointed with how everything played out," he said. "It was frustrating having the speed we did and not being able to do what we thought we could with it."

The night began with a mechanical problem that kept Scelzi from participating in hot laps.

"When we unloaded and started up the motor wasn't running," he said. "We changed motors and had the same issue again. That's when we realized it had to be a fueling issue. We changed the tail tank, fuel pump and fuel system. We didn't get to hot lap. We got one lap in qualifying and I wasn't able to put a good lap down. We finally got it right for the heat race."

Scelzi qualified 21st quickest, but a run from seventh to fourth place in a heat race moved him up nine positions in the A Main.

"We were good in the heat and made our way right to fourth," he said. "First through fourth were nose to tail so I felt really good. That gave me confidence going into the feature.

"We worked our way to eighth right away in the feature. I got myself up to sixth and then the power steering went out on Lap 15. We had a line break and dump all the fluid out. I had to run the last 20 laps without power steering. It was extremely hard. I felt like I did fine until we had about 10 laps to go. At that point I struggled to hang on. The last couple of laps I fell back from fourth to sixth."

The sixth-place finish was Scelzi's 48th top 10 of the season.

"I honestly felt like we were a podium car," he said. "We were fast and getting by guys the first half of the feature. We drove up through the field. If we got a bad restart and someone got by us, we'd get right back by them. I'd have loved to see how we could have finished with power steering, but it didn't work out."

Scelzi plans on returning to Keller Auto Speedway this Saturday for a King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series event. He enters the race leading the championship standings.

Alex Pokorski racks top-10 MSA run
at Gravity Park Speedway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 21, 2021 – After a three-week break from competition, second-year 360 Sprint Car driver Alex Pokorski returned to the cockpit of the No. 4 Pokorski Motorsports machine to post his fourth top-10 A-main showing of the 2021 campaign in an Akright Auto Parts of Sheboygan Falls Midwest Sprint Car Association main event at Gravity Park Speedway in Chilton, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 18.

With 18 MSA 360 Sprint Cars signed in for the second event of the 2021 season on the quarter-mile Gravity Park Speedway bullring, Pokorski lined up fourth in the first 10-lap MSA heat race.

Track conditions proved to dictate the evening as the surface began taking rubber early in the event, which was held as part of the annual Chilton Fall Classic featuring competition in eight different divisions over two nights.

Pokorski held tight to the bottom of the rubber-filled track throughout the heat race and was close enough to take advantage when Tony Wondra drifted high and slipped out of the rubber on the final lap. Pokorski ducked underneath Wondra in turn three on the final circuit to claim a third-place finish.

The West Bend native earned the sixth starting spot in the 25-lap MSA A main and maintained his line along the rubber-laden low groove throughout the event and enduring three caution flags en route to a sixth-place showing in a race won by Tony Wondra.

“The track only had one fast groove due to rubber being laid down,” Pokorski said. “My approach was to get down into the groove as quickly as possible and wait for people to make mistakes in front of me. You have to conserve your tires when the track takes rubber, so it’s just about avoiding mistakes and saving tires. I’m happy to finish sixth. I felt I was faster than one or two cars in front of me, but they didn’t make mistakes.”

The Pokorski Motorsports team will close out the 2021 Midwest Sprint Car Association points season with a doubleheader weekend of action starting Friday, Sept. 24 with an MSA 360 Sprint Car event held in memory of Fuzzy Fassbender, Harry Neitzel and Rick Schmidt at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. The Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Cars and Wisconsin WingLESS Sprint Cars will also be on the card for the all-Sprint Car event.

On-track action will begin at 5:50 p.m. with qualifying and racing to follow.

The team will cap the 2021 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car and MSA points campaigns at the Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships on Saturday, Sept. 25 at The Plymouth Dir Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

The Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships will feature the final points races of the season for the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Cars, Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Cars, Midwest Sprint Car Association Sprint Cars, PDTR 360 Sprint Cars and IRA Lightning Sprints with 2021 champions crowned in all five divisions.

Westfall earns BOSS podium in Fremont visit; Gas City, Eldora ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (September 20, 2021) – Despite kicking off the weekend with a 14th-place score during USAC National Sprint Cars competition at Circle City Raceway on Friday, September 17, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports found another gear during Saturday’s visit to Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio, and ultimately capped their weekend on the podium.

Westfall, driver of Ray Marshall’s Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/Bumblebee Express/No. 33M sprint car, finished third during his visit to “The Track That Action Built,” climbing ahead seven spots after starting tenth on the main event grid.

Certainly no stranger to Fremont Speedway, Westfall is a former BOSS Series main event winner at the facility, earning his most recent win on July 13, 2019. In addition, Westfall finished fourth with the BOSS non-wingers during a Fremont start in mid-August.

Westfall has one BOSS triumph in 2021, that occurring at “Dirt’s Monster Half Mile” – Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway.

“If we would have started a little closer to the front, I think we may have had a shot,” Westfall said of his Fremont performance. “Regardless, I can’t say enough about Ray Marshall and this entire Ray Marshall Motorsports team. Ray gives us the opportunity and the equipment to be successful and I couldn’t be more grateful to be the man who gets to do the fun part.”

Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will continue their 2021 campaign with another jam-packed weekend along the Indiana/Ohio corridor, launching their slate with a Thursday night visit to Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, Indiana, on Thursday, September 25. The team will then visit the World’s Greatest Dirt Track, Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, for 4-Crown Nationals competition on Saturday, September 25.

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (September 20, 2021) – For the sixth time this season, and for the second time at BAPS Motor Speedway, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich is a main event winner, doing so during the annual Greg Hodnett Foundation Race on Thursday evening. September 17. The $5,000 triumph was the product of row one, losing the lead initially to Kunkletown, Pennsylvania’s Ryan Smith, then claiming the point for himself on lap 12. The victory was a second consecutive at BAPS Motor Speedway.

Dietrich, driver of Gary Kauffman’s Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, Graver’s Garage, Racer’s New & Used Parts Warehouse, No. 48 sprint car, continued his recent weekend with back-to-back starts against Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions, first participating in Williams Grove Speedway’s Jack Gunn Memorial on Friday, then Lincoln Speedway’s Dirt Classic VIII on Saturday.

The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native advanced from 13th to fifth in the $7,000-to-win Jack Gunn Memorial, then climbed from 18th to ninth in the $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic.

“We did the best we could with the hands we were given. I think we were good enough to win all three of those races, but you have to be in a better position to capitalize,” Danny Dietrich said, who owns six victories at five different facilities thus far in 2021. “I can’t say enough about this team. My guys bust their butts and I appreciate everything they do for me. I think we have a few more wins left in the tank, so we’ll do what we can to capitalize when the Outlaws come to town in a few weeks.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with another doubleheader in the Keystone State, set to visit Williams Grove Speedway and Selinsgrove Speedway on Friday and Saturday, September 24-25.

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa.

Sides Heading to Eldora Speedway and Lernerville Speedway This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - HANFORD, Calif. (Sept. 20, 2021) - Jason Sides is bound for the middle of the country to spend a couple of days at home before an upcoming weekend in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Sides has been traveling from California toward his shop in Tennessee, a journey of more than 27 hours. He will then leave in a couple of days for the nine-plus hour trip to Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, for the BeFour the Crowns Showdown on Friday prior to a race on Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., for the Commonwealth Clash.

"I'm looking forward to a couple of days at home before heading to Eldora and Lernerville," he said. "We always enjoy racing at those two tracks and are excited to head to both this weekend."

Sides wrapped up his first trip to the West Coast in two years last Saturday at Keller Auto Speedway, which hosted the Tom Tarlton Classic.

The night began on a positive note as Sides qualified third quickest and won a heat race to advance into the dash.

"Going out late was a little bit better in qualifying," he said. "The track got a little widened out and was greasy early. We had a decent run to get to the front of the heat. The track was a little narrow then and (David) Gravel showed me a nose a couple of times, but we stayed out front.

"We tightened up a little for the dash because the track was getting slick. I thought we had a good run, but when we got into turn one there were some holes that started to form in turns one and two. We hit one and shoved up the track. That cost us two spots."

Sides placed sixth in the dash, which started him on the outside of the third row in the main event.

"We were trying some stuff that worked the other night in Elma," he said. "It just didn't work there. We tried to make it where the car would squat and go. It just squatted and slid across the race track. As slick as it got we weren't really prepared for it. We should have been tighter or more free to bang off the curb, but that's not my style anymore."

Sides dropped several positions early and went into the work area midway through the race. His crew made a shock adjustment and Sides rallied from the back of the pack to 16th during the remainder of the race.

"The car felt better and was more drivable after the pit stop," he said. "We just tried something that didn't work to start the race."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 18 - Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, Calif. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 6 (4); Feature: 16 (6).

Abreu goes plus ten for top-five in BAPS’ Greg Hodnett Foundation Race

Date: Thursday, September 16th Event: Greg Hodnett Foundation Race Series: Open Event Track: BAPS Motor Speedway (York Haven, Pennsylvania) Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 5th (15th)

Date: Friday, September 17th Event: Jack Gunn Memorial Series: All Star Circuit of Champions Track: Williams Grove Speedway (Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania) Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 12th (15th)

Date: Saturday, September 18th Event: Dirt Classic VIII Series: All Star Circuit of Champions Track: Lincoln Speedway (Abbottstown, Pennsylvania) Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 15th (22nd)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (September 20, 2021) - It was a long weekend in the Keystone State for Rico Abreo and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing, but the team ultimately prevailed, qualifying for all three weekend headliners including the $20,000-to-win Lincoln Speedway Dirt Classic VIII. Despite just missing the top-ten in two out of the three weekend events, Abreu kicked things off with a bang, capping BAPS Motor Speedway’s Greg Hodnett Foundation Race with a hard charge from 15th to finish fifth; Abreu’s 29th top-five, 48th top-ten, of the 2021 season.

In addition to his top-five in York Haven, Abreu, pilot of the Rowdy Energy, Curb Records, Lucas Oil Products, Stadelhofer Construction, Self Made Racing, Salty’s BBQ, No. 24 sprint car, finished 12th and 15th, respectively, the following evenings, first finishing 12th after starting 15th in Williams Grove Speedway’s $7,000-to-win Jack Gunn Memorial, then ending the weekend with a rally from 22nd to finish 15th in the aforementioned Dirt Classic VIII.

Forced to do things the hard way, Abreu had to battle his way through the Dirt Classic B-Main before making a start in the 40-lap finale. The St. Helena, California-native had to resort to the B-Main after missing the A-Main points cutoff. The program utilized a double heat race format with passing points assembling the feature lineup.

Adding to the talent pool, the Jack Gunn Memorial and Dirt Classic each featured the All Star Circuit of Champions.

“Considering the level of competition we were facing, it’s tough to be disappointed with our results, but I know our potential and we’re not going to be satisfied unless we win,” Abreu said, who owns one victory thus far in 2021. “It’s been a pretty wild season, to say the least. We’ve logged a lot of miles and it hasn’t been easy for the crew, but they’ve been hanging tough and I’m proud of them. We still have a lot of racing on our schedule, so we’ll do what we can to rack up a few more wins for this Rowdy Energy team.”

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with a doubleheader at the World’s Greatest Dirt Track - Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. The weekend agenda will begin with the BeFour the Crowns Showdown featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series on Friday, followed by the 4-Crown Nationals featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions on Saturday.

Austin McCarl and Country Builders Racing 11th at Tom Tarlton Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting acclimated to each other during the Louie Vermeil Classic and the Gold Cup Race of Champions in Chico, CA, Austin McCarl and the Country Builders Racing team turned in a solider performance as the Altoona, IA driver pocked an 11th place finish with ‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’.

“Saturday night was a big improvement for us following a tough go at the Gold Cup,” Austin McCarl said. “Hanford is one of the tracks that I have ran at a few times now, so a little familiarity and some hard work over the week went a long way, but we still have improvements I think we can make.”

Getting off to a strong start in qualifying time trials, McCarl timed the Country Builders/Ochoco West Lumber/BMRS backed No. 88 entry in eighth fastest.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, McCarl would get off to a sluggish start which resulted in him losing a couple of spots in the running order. Finishing fifth, McCarl was confident heading into the feature as he was able to learn a few things over the course of his eight-lap heat.

Gridding the field from the 14th starting position, McCarl would work his way forward as he fought on the outside of the Top-10. With a very strong car under him, McCarl would make a couple of missteps in traffic which hindered in from a better finish he noted.

Still, going toe-to-toe with the best in the country in just his fifth night with Country Builders Racing, McCarl capped the Outlaws CA swing off with an 11th place finish.

“I am pretty happy with how things felt on Saturday night, and really feel like we were better than where we finished but I made a couple of mistakes,” McCarl said. “The way things work out, we have a few more races back in Hanford, CA and I think we can build off this for sure. Thanks to everyone at Country Builders Racing for their continued support.

Austin McCarl and Country Builders Racing would like to thank Country Builders, Ochoco West Lumber, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, MAAS Brothers Powder Coating, Offill Family Farms, , HRP, FK Shocks, A.R.T. Enterprise, Engler Machine, Aurora Rod Ends, Schoenfeld, Wilwood, Kistler Engines, K1 Safety Gear, Bell Helmets, Maxim Chassis, B. Scadden Design, and Octane Ink for their continued support.

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

ON TAP: Country Builders Racing and Austin McCarl are back at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA on Saturday night as King of the West action resumes.

 

 

Chase Johnson Earns Three Feature Victories in 26 Hours With USAC Silver Crown Debut on Tap

Inside Line Promotions - BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (Sept. 20, 2021) - Chase Johnson accomplished a new feat last weekend as he won all three features he competed in during a 26-hour period.

Johnson and May Motorsports swept the USAC West Coast Sprint Car Series races on Saturday at Bakersfield Speedway in Bakersfield, Calif., and Sunday at Kern County Raceway Park, where he and Six8 Motorsports also recorded a Bay Cities Racing Association triumph.

Momentum is clearly on Johnson's side as he is set to make his USAC Silver Crown debut this weekend at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the Four Crown Nationals. He will qualify in a Goodnight Racing entry on Friday before the race on Saturday.

"I think this is our fourth or fifth attempt at running this car for the first time," he said. "We've had bad weather and misfortune along the way, but I'm excited to turn some laps for the first time and to do so at Eldora Speedway is a dream."

Last weekend marked the most wins Johnson has earned in that short of time and pushed his season win total to eight victories, including four in his last five starts.

"It was pretty awesome," he said. "To do it both nights in the sprint car and to double down on Sunday was pretty cool. Missing the first half of the night and tagging the back of the field in the main on Saturday was cool to do as well. Then to cap the weekend by getting the job done in the midget, which was a pretty good show, was awesome. There was good money on the line and good cars so to knock that one off was pretty sweet."

The two tracks are approximately 20 minutes apart and Johnson took advantage of a unique opportunity to arrive just in time for heat races at Bakersfield Speedway.

"I had to work all day so a huge thank you goes to Jayson May and Cooper's Propane," he said. "They are the ones who made the flight possible for me to get to the track."

Johnson advanced from seventh to fourth place in his heat race at Bakersfield Speedway. However, since he missed qualifying he was relegated to the back of the field - 14th - for the A Main.

"I think we got the lead on Lap 15," he said. "There were yellows that made my job easier, but I was happy that we were able to pass most of the guys and people dropping out didn't give us a lot of spots. I knew I had to be patient to get by all those guys, but at the same time you have to be aggressive to get the job done quickly because we had to start so far back.

"We went from third to first on a mid-race restart. I drove around the second-place guy on the outside of turns one and two and I slid the leader down in turns three and four. It was pretty much smooth sailing from there and we won by a straightaway and a corner."

Johnson was just as successful in the non-wing sprint car on Sunday at Kern County Raceway Park, where he set quick time during qualifying before advancing from sixth to third place in a heat race and from fourth to win the main event.

"It played out really good," he said. "Starting fourth wasn't nearly as bad as the night before. I think we got the lead around Lap 4 or Lap 5. I knew once I got the lead I could control the pace of the race. I went in a little bit of a cruise mode to make sure I didn't make any mistakes."

Johnson's night in a midget was efficient as well. He timed in third quick during qualifying before gaining a spot to place fourth in a heat race. Johnson capped the night by rallying from sixth to win the feature.

"We qualified well and took the heat race as we could get it," he said. "That put us in a good spot to contend in the A Main. We started sixth and got up to third somewhat quickly. I was able to keep moving forward. I think we took the lead around Lap 10. It was a great night every time we hit the track.

"I want to thank everyone with May Motorsports and Six8 Motorsports for the opportunities. I'm grateful that we could make the most of them by winning every feature."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 18 - Bakersfield Speedway in Bakersfield, Calif. - Heat race: 4 (7); Feature: 1 (14).

Sept. 19 - Kern County Raceway Park in Bakersfield, Calif. (Non-Wing Sprint Car) - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 3 (6); Feature: 1 (4).

Crockett Captures Career-Best Result at Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 20, 2021) - Roger Crockett posted a career-best performance during the 11th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial last weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Crockett finished 10th during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event opener on Thursday before recording a runner-up result on Friday and Saturday.

"We unloaded Thursday with one of the fastest cars in hot laps," he said. "We were really, really good. We drew the front row in our heat race and made the best of it by winning both preliminary nights."

Crockett's heat race win started the weekend on Thursday. He followed with a run from fourth to second place in a qualifier, which lined him up on the inside of the fourth row in the main event.

"The first night the car was really bad in the main event," he said. "We keep trying to figure out how to get it right in main events. We had zero grip and the car had zero drive. It's something we've been fighting. When we're good it's extremely good so we don't want to give up on what we're doing. We're doing something nobody else is doing so we're on our own to figure it out. When we're off we're not very good so we're trying to make gains on it."

Crockett salvaged the night with a 10th-place result, which was his 10th top 10 of the season.

The results improved on Friday when Crockett won a heat race, maneuvered from fifth to third place in a qualifier and capped the night with a charge from seventh to second in the A Main.

"We won the heat, which we needed to do from the front row, and then the qualifier was really fun battling with Scott (Bogucki) and (Jordon) Mallett," he said. "We went three wide. It was a lot of fun and our car was really good again. In the feature we were good as well. Early in the race I couldn't get by a couple of guys, but a yellow really helped me. Two guys ahead aren't going to run the same line on a restart because one wants to pass the other so as soon as they weren't nose to tail I was able to drive by both and get away. We got to second and I hated to see the white flag because I wanted to see if we could run with (Derek) Hagar. He's extremely fast on that type of track. Nobody is going to just drive by him, but I think we could have raced with him."

Crockett's second-place showing combined with his 10th-place run during the opener ranked him second in event points. That garnered the outside from row starting position for the 40-lap main event on Saturday.

Crockett led the first 32 laps before falling to second in traffic.

"It's disappointing to lead 32 laps and not win, but big picture with 68 cars there and we had consistently the most speed, you can't be disappointed with that," he said. "By ourselves we were extremely good. I was way, way too tight in traffic. In traffic one guy could have given us more room. He was running in the preferred line and I got way too tight behind him. He's back there trying to learn so that's just part of racing. It's just unfortunate to lose a win over it. However, the guy raced J.J. (Hickle) the same way. They made contact, but he made it by. J.J. ran a good race and did a good job. I think he was willing to make a more aggressive move than I was to get by and that's what won him the race."

Crockett hopes to race this weekend, but the racing plan is currently up in the air.

Williamson Garners Hard Charger Award During Hockett/McMillin Memorial Finale

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 20, 2021) - Garet Williamson capped the 11th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial by earning the Hard Charger Award last Saturday.

The Bryant Paver Motorsports driver garnered the award for passing the most cars during the A Main of the prestigious Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event hosted by Lucas Oil Speedway.

The three-day event began on Thursday with Williamson finishing fourth in a heat race and advancing from seventh to third in a qualifier. That earned enough points to lock directly into the feature, which ended with a 16 th-place finish.

"Thursday wasn't a great night," he said. "We made the show, but I wasn't aggressive enough in the A Main and we just ran around where we started."

The next night was a step forward as Williamson maneuvered from eighth to fifth place in a heat race. He won a qualifier after starting second and wrapped up the night by picking up two positions in the feature to place sixth, which was a career-best outing at the track.

"On Friday we were really good," he said. "I think I should have ran in the top three. I got to fourth and moved around. I was fast where I was and that messed me up. That was the best I've ran there and the fastest I've been competing there. I knew we had a good car going into Saturday."

Saturday's event finale began with Williamson placing third in a Last Chance Qualifier. He then won a B Main to transfer into the 19th starting spot in the main event.

"I had my RACEiver come unplugged during the three wide," he said. "I stopped and the officials put me to the tail so we actually started 26 th. We had a great car. Honestly, with another yellow or two we could have run in the top five. We had a good battle with Joe B. Miller and Kyle Bellm, and we all finished right next to each other.

"It was nice to run well and charge into the top 10. I knew we had the car to do it all weekend."

Williamson's eighth-place result was his 16th top 10 of the season.

He plans on racing this Saturday at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, and Sunday at East Moline Speedway in East Moline, Ill., with the Sprint Invaders.

Trophy Cup Field Set

by Ron Rodda

Tulare, CA…The Abreu Vineyards 27th Annual Trophy Cup Presented By Rudeen Racing entry deadline has passed and 107 entries have been accepted for the October 21-23 event at Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway. The large field of winged 360 sprints will be racing for a $200,000 purse which guarantees the Cup champion $27,000 for capturing the title.

All drivers who qualify for the Saturday night 50-lap main event are guaranteed a minimum of $5000 total for the three day event. Preliminary racing on Thursday and Friday offers two opportunities for drivers to earn points with the better of the two nights being used to select the top 48 for the Saturday heat races.

Drivers will earn points in qualifying, heats and main events they run over the three days with the top twenty in points after Saturday heat races moving directly to the big finale. Those 20 will be completely inverted by points and the top four from the B main will tag to fill the last two rows.

The payoff for just the Saturday main is $21,450 and the point fund portion totals $81,500. The Saturday A main cars are automatically the top 24 in points when the event is finished and, due to the guarantee payoff, the main basically pays $5000 to start for a cumulative payout for the three nights

Since 2020 was canceled, it will have been two years and four days between Cup events once next month’s opening night starts. The 2019 race was memorable when Rico Abreu won the main events all three nights. Abreu took the checkers from starting 5th, 10th, and 17th showing it didn’t matter where he started.

Of the 107 entries, fifteen have the driver noted as TBA. It is always interesting to speculate who might wind up in these rides and the next month will likely offer some surprises. The entire entry list can be viewed at https://www.trophycup.org/trophy-cup-drivers/

 

 

WESTERN MIDGET RACING RETURNS TO ARIZONA THIS SATURDAY AT ADOBE MOUNTAIN

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (Sept. 17, 2021) – The 19th round of the Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction championship will see the stock production Midgets return to Glendale, Ariz. at the Adobe Mountain Speedway on Saturday night. The series’ fifth appearance at the one-fifth mile will be the fourth points race in the Copper State for the circuit in 2021. Fresno’s David Prickett has won twice at Adobe including most recently in May. Other winners include home state favorite Cory Brown of Peoria and Lakeside, Calif.’s Darren Brent.

Prickett aims to get back into the win column this weekend, facing a 16-point deficit to series points leader Blake Bower. Bower has yet to make a stop at Adobe Mountain but will need to make at least one to be eligible for the 2021 series championship. Santa Paula’s Megan Moorhead ranks third in the standings after equaling her career-best finish with a second-place run last weekend at Ventura. The mark was previously set by the driver of the no. 20w on April 10 at Adobe Mountain.

Moorhead chased Stockton’s Caden Sarale in the Kevin Felkins-owned no. 35s across the finishline at Ventura Raceway. WMR returns to Ventura on October 16 and October 30.

Brown is fourth in the championship standings despite a 19th place effort at Ventura. Hawaiian Kala Keliinoi is just eight points ahead of Antioch’s Shawn Arriaga in the battle for fifth in the standings. Las Vegas’ Kyle Hawse ran a career-best fourth at Ventura and sits seventh followed by Cameron Beard of Atwater, French Camp’s Sage Bordenave, and Brent as the top-ten.

Western Midget Racing will join the National Open Wheel 600cc Cactus Region Micro Sprints and Mini Late Models during Saturday night’s event. Pit gates open at 2pm with the drivers meeting at 5pm and racing to follow.

Champion Oil Now Offers Full-Synthetic Racing Power Steering Fluid

(Clinton, MO / 09.17.21) Champion Oil, a PLZ Aeroscience Company and a recognized leader in racing and specialty lubricants, now offers Champion Full-Synthetic Racing Power Steering Fluid. Part #4370H.

https://www.championbrands.com/champion-full-synthetic-racing-power-steering-fluid/

“Racing power steering fluid (PSF) is an essential part of keeping race cars at peak performance. A top tier power steering fluid like Champion’s part #4370H ensures the hoses, pistons, valves, and power steering pump work optimally and not start to deteriorate,” stated Karl Dedolph of Champion Oil.

“Champion Full-Synthetic Racing Power Steering Fluid reduces temperatures and delivers consistent steering response in competition applications. It has exceptional low temperature flow that reduces initial drag on the power steering pump.”

“Its’ robust formulation is a full-synthetic fluid that provides improved thermal stability for less pressure drop as temperatures rise. It also offers high temperature foam resistance for better cooling and improved steering precision.”

“Champion’s Racing PSF is a hydraulic fluid used in the steering system to create a hydraulic link between the steering wheel and the front wheels. It decreases the amount of effort required to turn the wheels”.

“It also lubricates the moving parts within the steering system. It suppresses foaming and prevents corrosion in the power steering gear and steering pump, which keeps performance vehicles in circle track, road racing, off-road, asphalt, drifting, autocross, etc. working optimally”, added Dedolph.

Champion’s Racing PSF meets or exceeds all specification standards that are requirements for viscosity, detergents, additives, and other components of this type of fluid. It is specifically engineered for racing applications. Components and specifications include: Decene Homopolymer Hydrotreated, Heterocyclic Ether, Alkaryl Amine, Zinc Alkydithiophosphate, Dibutylhydrogen Phosphite, Carboxylic Acid Ester, Toluene, Diphenylamine, Aryl Phosphite, and Alkylated Phenol. / Flash Point °C (°F) 225 (437)/ Pour point °C (°F) -40 (-40)/ Viscosity @ 40°C, 104°F cSt 52.5 / Viscosity @ 100°C, 211°F cSt 11.2 / Viscosity Index 23 / Color- Pale yellow to golden brown.

https://www.championbrands.com/champion-full-synthetic-racing-power-steering-fluid/

“A good maintenance practice for racers is to inspect the power steering fluid occasionally, it should maintain its’ color. If it’s dark, that’s a sign it’s time to change it. If you see any dirt, debris, or sludge in the power steering fluid, it’s time for the system to be flushed. If you hear some sort of noise when the wheel is turned or see some leaks, that may be another sign it’s time to change the fluid.”

ROSS ROBINSON SCORES AN EMOTIONAL 1ST PACE RUSH LATE MODEL WIN OF 2021 AT GEORGETOWN; CHRIS FLEMING MAKES HISTORY BY WINNING THE 1ST EVER RUSH LATE MODEL RACE AT LAND OF LEGENDS; CHAD RUHLMAN & GALE RUTH JR TRADE RUSH SPRINT WINS IN HUNT OF THE $5000 EQUIPMENT RENTAL OPTIONS WEEKLY SERIES TITLE
By Marcie Barlow

(September 17, 2021) -
(Pulaski, PA)...Another action packed weekend of Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC action saw Ross Robinson scored an emotional first RUSH Late Model win of the season at Georgetown Speedway on Friday night, while Chris Fleming made history by winning the first ever RUSH sanctioned event at Land of Legends on Saturday night. Chad Ruhlman and Gale Ruth, Jr. split RUSH Sprint Cars wins as they fight it out for the $5,000 to-win Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series championship. It was a full complement of RUSH Racing Series divisions throughout the weekend with the exception of the RUSH Pro Mods, who had the weekend off.

An emotional Ross Robinson was victorious at Georgetown Speedway on Friday night. Robinson, who had lost his father just six days earlier, started on the pole and led the 20-lap main event from the start to capture the win. Robinson's first RUSH win of 2021 was worth $1,000. Matt Hill, who started seventh, finished in second and was followed across the line by Trevor Collins, Donald Lingo, Jr. and Joey Warren.

At Dog Hollow Speedway Michael Duritsky, Jr. was the winner in Pace Performance RUSH Late Model action for the second week in a row. The Masontown, Pa. driver led the entire distance of the 20-lap main event to score the victory, which was also his third of the season at the speedway as he looks to clinch the track championship. Overall it was Duritsky’s fourth win on the circuit in 2021. Joe Moyer, newcomer Corey Neal, Mark Rend and Rob Coffaro all recorded their season best finishes in second through fifth.

The Land of The Legends Raceway in Canandaigua, NY hosted a special event for the Pace Performance RUSH Late Models on Saturday evening. Chad Homan, a former champion at the speedway who also has experience in Stocks and Big-Block Modifieds, started on the pole and led the first eight circuits before Sean Beardsley took the lead. Beardsley continued to pull away from the field while Chris Fleming methodically worked his way through the field. Fleming he got by Homan on the 16th circuit and set his sights on Beardsley. A lap 23 caution provided Fleming with the opportunity he needed as he blasted by Beardsley when the action resumed to score a convincing win and a $1,000 payday. Beardsley claimed second with Bret Belden, Homan and Beamer Guzzardi finishing third through fifth.

Flynn’s Tire/Born2Run Lubricants Late Model Touring Series action returned to Sharon Speedway on Saturday as the “Cider Jug 40” was on the card presented by Zarin Truck & Auto and an anonymous donor in honor of Autism Awareness. They say that “turnabout is fair play” and after a heartbreaking loss to Chub Frank just two weeks ago, Joe Martin was not to be denied as he passed Jeremy Wonderling with one lap to go to score the victory and a $4,000 payday.

Martin took the lead over Logan Zarin and Wonderling at the start. As the duo of Martin and Zarin began to distance themselves from the field, Will Thomas III and Kyle Hardy battled Wonderling for third. By lap 13 lapped traffic came into play and Zarin closed the gap on Martin and Thomas while Wonderling and Hardy closed the gap on Zarin. The restart following a lap 26 caution saw Zarin bobble which allowed Wonderling to pass both Zarin and Thomas for the second position. Zarin’s struggle also caused Thomas to drop out of the top five and enabled eighth place starter Russ King to join in the battle for fourth with Hardy. Hardy and King battled for nearly ten laps with Hardy finally getting under King in turn three on lap 37; unfortunately, the two made contact which resulted in a caution, a flat tire for King.

The final two laps of green flag action saw Wonderling use the outside to take the lead away from Martin. Martin then battled back to charge around Wonderling as the white flag waved. Martin fended off Wonderling’s last lap challenge to score the win by 0.430 seconds. The victory ended a seven-year winless drought on the Tour for Martin, whose lone Tour victory came on August 30, 2014 at McKean County Raceway. Wonderling captured the second position followed by Hardy, Zarin and Matt Latta.

Zach Gunn and Cole Petrelle led the Pace Performance RUSH Late Models to the green in their 20-lap main event Saturday night at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. Gunn grabbed the lead; however, a six-car pileup in turn four slowed the field as the first lap was completed. Petrelle overtook Gunn and led lap two before fifth place starter Kyle Lukon took over the top spot on lap three. Lukon weathered a caution on lap six and went on to lead the final 14 circuits to score his third win of the season at the Imperial, Pa. oval. Petrelle held off Zach Gunn for second with Nico Dabecco and Zach Morrow rounding out the top five.

Woodhull Raceway hosted the annual “Lyle Sherwood Memorial” on Saturday night. Newly crowned track champion Brian Knowles visited the speedway’s victory lane for the sixth time and he did it in dramatic style as he nursed a mount with front end suspension damage to the win for the final 13 circuits. It was Knowles fourth straight win at Woodhull and ninth overall on the circuit in 2021 as he moved into third place in the National Weekly Series standings. Chuck LaFleur capitalized on a final lap miscue by Steve LeBarron to finish second over Jason McGregor, Tony Kelley and Jared Keeney.

The Pace Performance RUSH Late Models competed in the “Lee Stultz Memorial” at Winchester Speedway Saturday evening. Levi Crowl scored his fifth victory of the season at the Virginia oval. Chuck Bowie made his first visit in more than two months and was a season best second. Tanner Kerr was third in just his fourth race of the year. Devin Brannon returned after missing the past three races and his fourth place was his ninth top five in nine starts! Megan Mann was fifth.

The Pace Performance RUSH Sprint Cars were in action both Friday and Saturday for Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series events. The two days of racing action took place along the Route 7 corridor at Raceway 7 and Sharon Speedway. Friday’s action took place at Sharon Speedway as the division headlined night one of the “Apple Festival Nationals”. An invert 0 saw RUSH Sprint stars Gale Ruth, Jr. and Chad Ruhlman lead the field to green. Ruhlman took the lead with Ruth staying in striking distance of the leader and Jarod Larson following closely in third should Ruhlman or Ruth bobble. The leaders hit lapped traffic on the 11th circuit but Ruth was unable to make up any ground on Ruhlman as the Erie, Pa. resident went on to score his season’s seventh victory by 4.399 second. The caution-free 20-lap event was completed in just 6:51 minutes. Ruth came home in the second spot for the third time in the last four races at the Hartford, Ohio oval. Finishing Larson picked up another top five finish. Brian Hartzell was a season best Sharon fourth with Ryan Fraley fifth.

On Saturday evening the wingless warriors made the short trip north to compete in Raceway 7’s “September Shootout” for their first appearance of the season at the Conneaut, Ohio oval. The main event had John Mollick joining Ruhlman on the front row to start the event. Ruhlman led the first three circuits before Mollick pulled even with Ruhlman on lap four. By lap five, sixth place starter Gale Ruth, Jr. joined in the battle for the top spot. The trio engaged in a heated battle and swapped the lead several times during the next two laps before Ruth gained a small advantage and the lead on lap eight. By the midway point Ruth found a little breathing room, and went on to lead the remaining laps to score his first ever Raceway 7 victory and eighth overall of 2021, worth $800. Ruhlman finished in the runner-up position with Mollick claiming third. Rod George finished fourth with Tyler Newhart fifth.

The lone Pace Performance RUSH Sportsman Modified event took place at Sharon Speedway on Saturday also part of the “Apple Festival Nationals”. Chas Wolbert passed J.C. Boyer at the start of the feature event and was never challenged to capture his fifth Sharon Speedway win of the season, which came in the $800 to-win Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Touring Series event. Wolbert, the newly crowned $3500 Hovis Weekly Series Champion, was followed by Rob Kristyak, Boyer, Tony Tatgenhorst and Clayton Deems at the checkered flag.

Jeremy Zufall was the winner in RUSH Stock Car action at Dog Hollow Speedway. It was Zufall’s eighth of the year at Dog Hollow and ninth overall in Pace Performance Weekly Series action, which propelled him into the Weekly Series points lead. Bob Torquato was runner-up for the second straight week. Tim Laughard’s third was his worst finish since debuting on August 6.

The RUSH Karting Series held both afternoon and evening races last Saturday to end the season at Stateline Speedway Karts. Scoring wins were Bexley Smith and Emmie Bush (Amateur); Ethan Arnone swept both JR-1 events, Cody Rickard and Wyatt Long (JR-2), and Mike Boardman and Morgan Curry (Adults).

Pace Performance RUSH competitors at Potomac Speedway, Delaware International Speedway, Genesee Speedway, Bradford Speedway and Eriez Speedway had the week off. Potomac, Delaware, and Genesee will also be dark this weekend.

Weekly Pace Performance RUSH Late Model action begins this weekend on Friday evening at Dog Hollow Speedway. Eriez Speedway is hosting the ninth annual “September Sweeps” on both Friday and Saturday with the RUSH Late Models competing for $2,000 to-win. Saturday evening’s RUSH racing action includes Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway where the Late Models, Sprints and Sportsman Modifieds will all be in action. The RUSH Late Models will also be in action at Winchester Speedway and Woodhull Raceway on Saturday. Bradford Speedway hosts the “Jim Torrence Memorial” on Sunday with the RUSH Late Models and Pro Mods in action.

Goldesberry Earns Two More Top 10’s

Springfield, IL (September 17, 2021)- Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team were back in action for two races with the IRA last weekend. The weekend started at Outagamie Speedway in Seymour, WI on Friday and Saturday the action moved west to Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, WI.

There were 21 cars on hand at Seymour and the Rockstar Energy Drink #65 laid down a lap that was good enough for sixth quick. Goldesberry would start third in his heat race on a very fast track that was difficult to pass on. Not needing to take any chances to make the dash redraw, Goldesberry finished third. He would draw the #2 for Dash #1 putting the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim on the outside front row for the dash and Goldesberry would finish third. For the feature event, Goldesberry lined up inside the third row for the 30 lapper. The Rockstar Energy Drink car was battling with the top cars the entire race and ended up crossing the line in fourth.

“Overall, Seymour was a good night. The track was narrow early in the night but widened out for the feature.” said Goldesberry. “It was good to get another top 5 for our Rockstar team.”

Saturday night at Cedar Lake was the Jerry Richert Memorial and a race the team has had circled on the calendar since the beginning of the year. Unfortunately, the night did not get started off to a good start. After being in the top 10 during hot laps, the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim had the engine lay down before taking the checkers. The team thought it was the ignition box so they changed it but the problem still was not fixed. After further evaluation it was found that one of the exhaust valves had broke. The team went to work and changed engines but was forced to miss qualifying and the heat races. With a new bullet between the frame rails, Goldesberry tagged the tail of the 10 lap B main. With the top four cars transferring to the feature, Goldesberry wasted no time getting to the front and finish second putting the Rockstar Energy Drink #65 into the show. Having to start 20th in the feature, Goldesberry was able to use all 30 laps to get into the Top 10 and finish ninth.

“Unfortunately, we broke an engine in hot laps at Cedar Lake. We really like that racetrack and it was a bummer we missed the first half of the night. We got the engine changed and fought back to salvage a Top 10.” said Goldesberry

With the season winding down and just three races left on the IRA schedule, Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team will be at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, WI this Saturday night.

KNIGHTS OF THUNDER AND ACTION SPRINT TOUR SET FOR FINAL MERRITTVILLE VISIT OF 2021

By Tommy Goudge (September 16, 2021) – The Pinty’s Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car series and Pinty’s Action Sprint Tour Crate Sprint Car series are set for their final visits to Merrittville Speedway in 2021. Warm weather, great racing, and Merrittville’s famous food will greet fans who make the trip to the Thorold, Ontario track, while the event will also be broadcast live on GForceTV.

Each tour has run three events at Merrittville this season, and A-Main wins for drivers not named Poirier or Dykstra have been extremely hard to come by. Poirier has won all three Knights of Thunder races held at Merrittville this season, including a dominating victory at the historic Niagara Region track last Saturday. Dykstra has won two of the three Action Sprint Tour races at Merrittville this season, and took a runner-up finish behind Nick Sheridan there on August 6.

While Poirier’s sparkling record this season is well-documented, the driver with the best Knights of Thunder record at Merrittville this season other than Poirier is the unheralded Liam Martin. The 18-year-old has been in the top five twice at the Niagara Region track this season, including a runner-up last Saturday after starting in row six. Josh Hansen – another teenager – is the only other KoT driver with multiple top fives at Merrittville this season.

Jim Huppunen has a runner-up and three total top tens at Merrittville this season, but the results don’t show how competitive the veteran driver has been there this year. Huppunen spun and restarted at the back of the pack in two of the three races, including a charge to sixth last week. Other drivers to watch on Friday include Mikey Kruchka, Ryan Turner, Mack DeMan, and Aaron Turkey, who have all been on the podium at Merrittville this year.

Jesse Costa is the only driver besides Dykstra to score top fives in all three Merrittville AST events this year, but Costa won’t be in competition on Friday as he continues to recover from a crash at Brighton on Labour Day weekend. Sheridan took a podium finish at Merrittville in July before taking a win in August, while Lucas Smith and Steven Beckett also have two top fives there with AST this season. Allan Downey scored a podium finish at Merrittville last month, and will be looking for a repeat of the last September AST race at Merrittville; Downey secured his first Sprint Car win at Merrittville on September 18, 2020.

Several teams had work to do after a rough night at Southern Ontario Motor Speedway last Saturday. Dykstra and Sheridan both crashed in the A-Main, while Ryan Fraser had engine trouble. The biggest incident of the night was Brett Stratford’s heat race crash which completely destroyed his BS39 car. All four drivers are planning to race at Merrittville on Friday night, including Stratford who took a runner-up finish in the most recent AST event held there. Darren Dryden scored the win at SOMS, his first in a Sprint Car and on a dirt track.

CHAMPIONSHIP CHASES
Jordan Poirier’s Knights of Thunder points lead was dwindling before last weekend’s events at Humberstone and Merrittville, but the Quebec driver put a stop to that trend by dominating the weekend. Poirier now holds a commanding 63 point advantage with three events left on the 2021 schedule. Ryan Turner moved into second in the standings last weekend, but Jim Huppunen is just one point behind in third. Josh Hansen and Travis Cunningham hold spots in the current top five, while DJ Christie is right behind Cunningham in sixth. Liam Martin, Cory Turner, and Jamie Turner are seventh, eighth, and ninth respectively, while Tyler Rand and Holly Porter are tied for 10th.

Jacob Dykstra’s Action Sprint Tour points lead shrank substantially after his crash at SOMS last weekend, but he still holds a 47 point lead over Allan Downey. Nick Sheridan, Eric Gledhill, and Lucas Smith hold the remaining top five spots, while Darren Dryden, Brett Stratford, Rob Neely, Dereck Lemyre, and Dale Curran round out the top ten.

RECAPPING FLOWDYNAMICS RACING TRIP TO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

(Ontario, CA, September 15, 2021) Flowdynamics Racing drivers Matt McCarthy and Logan Williams hit the road to Northern California over Labor Day weekend. The duo qualified for five of the six possible main event starts on the tracks in the upper portion of the state.

Driving from Southern California, the Flowdynamics crew first journeyed to the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico for two rounds of racing at the “13th Annual Louie Vermeil Classic.” A fine field of 35-cars showed up for the first of the three nights of racing. Williams, who lives in Yorba Linda, California, turned in the 10th fastest qualifying time of the night on the ¼ mile oval with a lap of 13.464. McCarthy clocked in at 13.847, which was 21st quickest.

The first race of the weekend was the 10-lap Flowdynamics sponsored heat. McCarthy, who calls Riverside, California home, started on the pole and led every inch of the way. He was challenged on the freshly groomed racetrack over the first six-laps but pulled away when the track started coming in around lap seven. He won the heat by over a half straightaway. It was his second heat race victory in the USAC/CRA Series in 2021 and it put him straight into the main event.

PAS 6-19-21=5w=0062-3.jpg Logan Williams. Doug Allen Photos.

Williams was up a few moments later in the second heat race of the night. Starting fourth, he slid back to sixth, but came back through the pack and was up to third. However, disaster struck when he got clobbered and knocked out of the race in turn one on the fifth circuit. That sent him to the 12-lap B Main where he had to finish 6th or better to transfer into the A main. Unfortunately, he placed seventh, but he was able to get into the 30-lapper by using an available provisional.

In the main, Williams came from 23rd to finish 17th. McCarthy, who started 16th, was one spot behind Williams when the checkered flag signaled an end to the race.

The second night of action at Chico saw Williams turn in the 15th fastest time of the 30 cars on hand with a lap of 14.220. McCarthy was just a tick behind at 14.342, which was 19th best on the night. The teammates were matched up in the third heat race and things did not go the way they hoped. After a spirited battle between themselves for the final transfer spot, McCarthy ended up sixth and Williams placed eighth. That meant a trip to the B Main for both.

An early tangle in the B Main saw McCarthy’s night come to a premature end. When two cars in front of him tangled and stopped, he slid sideways to avoid them. After he came to a halt, another car arrived late and drilled the #28M. His front end was damaged, and he was taken off the track on the back of a tow truck.

Things went a lot better for Williams in the B as he finished second and earned a ticket into the main event. The young driver ran around the 11th spot for most of the race before ending up 17th at the finish.

The final night of the Northern California trip came at the Petaluma Speedway on Monday, September 6th. Williams ended up being the sixth fastest qualifier when he toured the 3/8-mile banked clay oval in 14.420. McCarthy was eighth fastest at 14.503. They squared off against each other in the second heat and placed third and fourth in the 10-lapper. In the final main event before hitting the highway south for home, McCarthy recorded the team’s best finish of the trip when he placed ninth. Williams took the checkered in 13th.

The Flowdynamics drivers had last weekend and this weekend off. They will be back to slinging clay when the USAC/CRA Sprint Cars hit Perris Auto Speedway for the Glen Howard Memorial on Saturday, September 25th.

McCarthy and Williams would like to thank the following sponsors for making the 2021 season possible. Flowdynamics Inc., JFK Design Build, Drink-Pac, Preferred Insulation, DRC Chassis, Kistler Racing and Benic Enterprises.

EDDIE TAFOYA JR’S THREE RACE USAC/CRA TRIP TO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

(Chino Hills, CA, September 12, 2021) Fresh off his latest trip to race with the USAC National Sprint Car Series in the “10th Annual Smackdown” at the Kokomo Speedway, Eddie Tafoya Jr. returned to the west coast just in time to compete in three USAC/CRA Sprint Car races in Northern California on Labor Day weekend. His best finish of the three was an 11th at the series annual visit to the Petaluma Speedway.

The first two races of the trek to Nor Cal took Tafoya to the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico. They marked the 2019 USAC/CRA and USAC Southwest Series Rookie of the Year’s first appearance at the historic track. In addition, those two races were the 13th running of the famed “Louie Vermeil Classic.” Normally staged on the large ½ mile Calistoga Speedway, this year’s version was switched to the much tighter Chico quarter-mile oval.

The first night of the three-race trip was on Saturday, September 4th and Tafoya qualified 30th. In his 10-lap heat race he ended up sixth and that meant he had to go to the B Main. The Chino Hills, California driver needed to finish in the top six in the B Main to get into the night’s 30-lap finale. He did that with room to spare when he finished fourth in the 12-lapper. A gear issue in the main event saw the #51T finish 20th after starting 21st.

The second night at Chico saw Tafoya only get one lap on the clocks in qualifying. Issues on that lap plagued him all night long as they meant he had to start in the back in all of his races. Coming from the eighth and last starting spot in his 10-lap heat, Tafoya had to get to fourth to go straight to the A Main. He made a late race charge and advanced three spots to fifth. On the last lap, he kept on charging, but when the checkered came down he was one car length shy of taking the transfer spot. Once again, he was going to have to get it done in the B Main.

Starting at the back of the B in the 15th position, things looked bleak. It meant he was going to have to pass nine cars in just 12-laps to get into the A Main. Somebody forgot to tell the young driver that things did not look good. Once the green flag flew, he kept his focus and moved forward. In all, he passed 10 cars and finished fifth! That put him in the A Main for the second straight night. For the 30-lapper he took his spot at the back one more frustrating time. That was the 22nd position and once again, he moved forward. This time he got up to, and finished 16th in the 30-lap finale.

At the final of the three nights at Petaluma Speedway, Tafoya qualified 12th fastest in the 15-car field. For the heat race it was the exact opposite of 24 hours earlier when he started at the back. This time he started on the front row, led the first five laps, and finished second. For the main he started on the outside of row sixth in 12th. There were some stagger issues and he finished 11th.

While the three days did not go as hoped, there were bright spots. Despite battling with some issues, Tafoya moved forward in all three of the A Mains he started as well as in both B Mains. The team learned a lot and will file it for the next time they hit the two Nor Cal tracks in 2022.

Next up for the Specialty Fasteners team will be the September 25th “Glen Howard Memorial” at Perris Auto Speedway. Tafoya will have his great looking shirts for sale on the track at the intermission autograph session and in the pits after the races. If you cannot make it and wish to purchase one, contact Tafoya on Facebook or Instagram.

Fans can follow Tafoya on Instagram @eddietafoya51.

Tafoya and his team would like to thank the following sponsors for being a part of the 2021 racing campaign. Specialty Fasteners, BR Performance, DRC Chassis, Ryder Racing Engines, Benic Enterprises, Simpson, and Bell. If you or your company would like to become a part of the team in 2021, please give them a call or send an Email to the contact information at the top of this press release.

Bogucki Leads SawBlade.com Sponsored Team to ASCS National Tour Victory at I-80 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 15, 2021) - Scott Bogucki recorded his fourth victory of the season during Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition last Friday at I-80 Speedway.

The SawBlade.com sponsored driver swept the night in impressive fashion, winning a pair of heat races before dominating the Bobby Parker Memorial main event.

"I really like that place and the car was good," he said. "That was probably the best performance we've had. We were quickest in hot laps, won the first heat, won the second heat and won the feature. It was a clean sweep."

Bogucki captured his first heat race from the outside of the front row. The second heat race featured a charge from eighth to win.

"Most of the cars I got on the start of the second heat race," he said. "The inside row went left and the outside row went right. We got maybe four spots going right through the middle. I got the lead on a restart with three laps to go."

That made Bogucki the high-points driver and garnered the pole position for the 30-lap A Main.

"I hate starting on the pole," he said. "There's only two things you can do, win or lose. We had a good race though. It was like 30 hot laps and I think we won by two seconds."

Bogucki returned to the track on Saturday for the Casey's Midwest Fall Brawl. He advanced from third to second place in a heat race before gaining a position in the feature to end seventh.

"I think we ran up to fourth in two laps and then it was a steady fade from then on," he said. "Honestly, I feel like I missed it with the car on Saturday, which was on me. We were way too free."

The next event on tap for Bogucki is the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. He has earned a podium finish during the event two of the last three years, including a career-best runner-up result in the 2018 finale.

"I've been really, really good or really, really bad there," he said. "It's a race I definitely want to win. We'll be giving it our all."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 10 - I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. - Heat race #1: 1 (2); Heat race #2: 1 (8); Feature: 1 (1).

Wilson Posts Top-Five Performances at Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - FREMONT, Ohio (Sept. 15, 2021) - Greg Wilson enjoyed one of his most productive weekends of the season in his home state of Ohio.

The Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics sponsored driver guided Seeling Motorsports to a fourth-place finish on Friday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica before placing fifth on Saturday at Fremont Speedway.

"We actually timed good," he said. "We've needed to work on qualifying and I felt like after Attica two weeks ago and what we did that Sunday we were headed down the right path. That showed last weekend. What Andy (Potter) and I have thought and what he's doing is definitely the right way. We just have to keep fine-tuning."

The weekend began on Friday with Wilson qualifying second quickest. He then finished where he started - third - in a heat race to lock himself into the 10th starting spot in the A Main.

"We positioned ourselves a lot better for a good finish," he said. "Anywhere you go starting 10th and working through the field is not easy. I felt like we were a little better than even fourth, but we couldn't get there the way the race played out. If we would have rolled off the front row they would have had a hell of a time catching us. I was pretty happy."

Wilson's fourth-place outing was his 10th top-five run of the season.

Things continued to roll on Saturday at Fremont Speedway, where Wilson set quick time in his group. A third-place finish in a heat race lined Wilson up on the inside of the fifth row for the main event.

"The track was a little choppy and a little wetter than you'd normally see Fremont," he said. "It's not something we've been particularly good at, but we were passing race cars. I don't think we had a car to win or the driver did a good enough job to win, but I felt we could have run third. Third through sixth were in a group. The only way one of us was going to move forward or backward was if someone made a mistake. I felt like we could have easily ran third through sixth and we ended up fifth."

Wilson plans on returning to Fremont Speedway this Saturday.

"We're on the verge of being competitive for a win," he said. "When you start smelling the victories, the fourths and fifths don't sit as well. But after you think about where we were a couple of months ago and where we are now I'm pretty happy."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 10 - Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 4 (10).

Amantea Scores Seventh-Place Finish With USAC East Coast Sprint Cars at Winchester Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WINCHESTER, Va. (Sept. 15, 2021) - Joey Amantea produced a seventh-place result Saturday night with the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars at Winchester Speedway.

"It was a decent night for us and at times we had a really good race car," he said. "It's getting to the point in the season where we are running out of chances to run well so we're happy with a top 10."

Amantea kicked off his third career visit to the track by advancing four positions in a heat race to finish fourth. He qualified for the feature redraw and garnered the third starting spot for the A Main.

Unfortunately, Amantea struggled with steering woes throughout the duration of the feature and fell to seventh. The top-10 run was the ninth of the season for Amantea with the series.

"We were really good in the heat race and with a couple more laps we were gaining on third there," he said. "The motor was lugging down a bit early and the steering wheel was kind of locking up, too. We were not able to capitalize on a good starting spot, but still came away with a solid top 10."

Amantea currently ranks eighth in the championship standings and only trails fifth place by 90 markers with five events remaining on the 2021 series schedule.

"This season has not met my expectations by any means, but we seem to be kind of gaining on things here late," he said. "We're moving up in the points and we're just going to try to get more consistent and start clicking off good runs each time out."

Next up for Amantea will be a micro sprint race at Shellhammer's Speedway in Shoemakersville, Pa., on Wednesday followed by a trip to Linda's Speedway in Jonestown, Pa., on Friday for another night of wingless micro sprint competition.

"We've really had a tough go of it in the micro this season so we're really trying to get that program going again in the right direction," he said. "This week is just about evaluating what we have and trying to click off a solid run and contend for wins."

Henderson and Sandvig Produce Podium During Jerry Richert Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (Sept. 15, 2021) - Justin Henderson piloted the Mike Sandvig owned sprint car to a second-place finish Saturday night during the 21st annual Jerry Richert Memorial at Cedar Lake Speedway.

Henderson also won the 360ci sprint car portion of the event behind the wheel of his family owned MAX Motorsports No. 83 prior to the Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Cars main event.

"Every time we've hit the track this season I feel like we've been a top-three car and you want to find your way to the podium each night," he said. "Lapped traffic really got us, but overall if I clean up a few mistakes here and there we're sitting in Victory Lane and not second."

With 27 cars in attendance, Henderson kicked off the night qualifying second quickest with a lap of 11.898 seconds. He then advanced two positions in a heat race to finish second and qualify for the dash.

Henderson gained two positions in the dash to finish third and garner the sixth starting spot for the A Main as a result. Looking to earn his second career victory in the event, Henderson rocketed around the top of the track to the runner-up position at the completion of the opening lap. The leader caught traffic on Lap 6 and Henderson capitalized to move into the lead.

"When we went into turns one and two the top really just opened up," he said. "I had to kind of follow the leader there a bit and I kind of snookered him into going to the bottom and I got around him on the top."

Henderson briefly lost the lead one lap later in traffic only to regain it on Lap 8. He was setting an extremely fast pace, but traffic became tougher to navigate. With only a handful of laps to go Henderson fell to second, which is where he finished. The top-five effort was the 17th of the season for Henderson and Sandvig.

"My right rear was a little more worn out then I thought it was and if I'd have found the rubber earlier and moved down it would have helped a ton," he said. "If I'd made a few less mistakes in Mike's car we'd have swept the night, but we definitely filled up the confidence bank."

The duo will take this week off before heading to Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., on Sept. 25-26 for a Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association doubleheader. Night 1 pays $4,000 to win and the finale offers $5,000 to win.

Henderson holds a 28-point advantage in the track's championship standings and is looking to lock up the 410 title for the second time in his career. It would be the first career points championship for Sandvig and that has Henderson excited the most.

"I definitely want to win both nights at Huset's and if we do that the points championship will take care of itself," he said. "It'd be nice to win a championship for Mike and get that off the old bucket list. Points racing can be tough as you can get a little hesitant sometimes with your driving so we're going to try and put that behind us and finish the season strong."

Lucas Oil Speedway Spotlight: With eye on the ASCS big prize, Covington seeks first Hockett/McMillin Memorial win
WHEATLAND, MO. (Sept. 14, 2021) - As one of the veterans on the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series Presented by MAVTV Motorsports Network, Matt Covington is qualified to rank this week’s 11th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway as one of the biggest events of the season.

“For the national tour as a whole, the Hockett/McMillin race is definitely in the top three,” Covington said. “The Knoxville Nationals, The Dirt Cup and the Hockett/McMillin are probably the three majors we would consider our biggest races.

“A lot of it is just the names that are associated with it,” he added, pointing to a three-day racing extravaganza that honors the legacy of Jesse Hockett, from Warsaw, Missouri, who was a star in both the winged and non-wing sprint divisions when he lost his life in a shop accident in 2010. His cousin and crew chief, Daniel McMillin, was killed in an automobile accident in 2006.

“You take that and combine it with what is the best facility that we race at all year and the big car count,” Covington said. “You get 60-something winged sprint cars there, quality cars, so you get stiff competition racing for a good memorial race. And it pays $10,000 to win.”

That’s the big prize in the Saturday-night finale for the ASCS winged competitors. Drivers in both the ASCS winged and POWRi WAR wingless divisions compete both Thursday and Friday with combined points from heat races, qualifiers, B-mains and A-mains helping to set the lineup for Saturday night’s ASCS main event and $3,077-to-win WAR feature.

Covington, from Glenpool, Oklahoma, also sees three nights of action as an opportunity to shake up the points battle. Entering a Tuesday night race in Spencer, Iowa, fellow Oklahoman Blake Hahn held a 63-point lead over Covington with J.J. Hickle 76 behind.

“As a national tour driver you also look at it as a race you can make up some real ground on somebody because of the stiffer competition and car count,” he said. “A lot of the races we go to, there’s only 24 cars there and a lot of times you take your top three or four points on the national tour and we all run first, second, third and fourth. Or run third, fourth, fifth and sixth. It always seems we’re right there next to one another.

“So when we get to a race where there is more quality cars, it has a tendency to shake things up.”

Covington, a member of the Quarter-Midget Hall of Fame, said it’s impossible - with only a handful of events remaining on the 2021 schedule - not to think about winning the championship.

“You think about it a lot, but at the same time … I’ve traveled around with the tour for a long time and you have to take it one race at a time,” he said. “I try to drive the same way every single week with the same mentality. It would be too easy to get worked up. Say you’re in the points lead, it would be too easy to get conservative. Or say you’re behind a little bit and you feel you have to push the issue to make up ground and you end up making a mistake.

“If you can approach every race the same way, with the same mind-set, that’s the way I try to be.”

Covington, 31, would love to win his first Hockett/McMillin on Saturday for more than the points and prestige. While he raced against Hockett only a few times before Jesse’s tragic death, Covington knows what “The Rocket” meant to the open-wheel racing world. Winning this race would be an ultimate tribute.

“I didn’t know Jesse very well personally, but he was one of the fastest guys and most-popular guys,” Covington said. “It didn’t surprise me that they had a Hockett race because everybody liked Jesse. He was a real likable guy and was just starting to prove himself in a winged car, on his way to being one of the top winged guys there was.”

Covington said he’s hopeful that this is the year, on a Wheatland oval he enjoys, that he finally is able to pay tribute to Hockett from victory lane.

“I had a rough go there last year, but that’s not the norm,” he said. “Normally, we’re on the podium and in contention for the win. I haven’t won a race there yet, but I’ve run second and third a crap-ton and I feel like I’m due to win one there.”

BALOG OPENS TUSCARORA 50 WEEKEND WITH A PODIUM FINISH, CLAIMS TOP TEN IN THE $54,000-TO-WIN FINALE AT PORT ROYAL SPEEDWAY

Hartland, Wisconsin (September 14th, 2021) – Bill Balog and B Squared Motorsports kicked off their rookie Tuscarora 50 weekend with a bang on the first of the three-day Central Pennsylvania blockbuster event. The Anderson’s Maple Syrup #17B unloaded fast from the trailer and never looked back.

After qualifying seventh overall in time trials on opening night, Balog claimed the All Star Circuit of Champions Heat Race #2 victory, qualifying him for the Dash Redraw, where the Hartland, WI resident drew the pole position. After securing the Dash #2 victory, the CK Contractors LLC, Buesser Concrete, Wisecup Siding, Howard Law, Wayne Corini, CPA, Lein Acres, Turn It Up Media sprint car started on the outside of the front row for the Thursday night preliminary victory worth $8,000. AJ Flick earned the initial advantage from the pole position, leading the first eight circuits before surrendering the lead to the “North Pole Nightmare” as the lead duo hit lapped traffic. Bill would trade sliders with Brent Marks for the lead but ultimately would settle for a second-place finish as the fifth starting Pennsylvania native went on to take the win. It was the seventh 2021 series podium finish for Balog, the two-time 2021 All Star Circuit of Champions feature winner and rookie.

“We were good here in April and that gave us confidence early. You really need to qualify well here at Port Royal and we were able to do that. We’re getting better and better at understanding the attitude of the car at these bigger tracks.” said Balog, driver of the Rocky Rococo's Pizza, Forest Brook Farms LLC/Forest Brook Trucking LLC, Indian Motorcycle of Metro Milwaukee, Utica Bar, Mr. Jim's Racing, Sam I Am, DSG, M3 Custom Creations, All Star Performance, Behling Racing Equipment, HRP, FK Rod Ends, Outerwears Inc., Dirty Slide Jobs, Midland Performance Inc., K1 Race Gear, XYZ Machining, BLZ sprint car.

Balog and the Anderson’s Maple Syrup #17B once again qualified well on Friday’s “Night before the 50” which translated into a second starting position and runner up finish in their heat race, qualifying them for a 13th place starting position in the $10,000 to win feature event. Bill battled into the top 10 in the 30 lap main event and ultimately moved up +2 spots from his starting position and finished the All Star Circuit of Champions feature in 11th.

Qualifying for Saturday’s 50-lap, $54,000-to-win finale against a 57-car field featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions would prove to be a bigger challenge after missing the heat race invert by under 0.01 seconds in qualifying and forcing Balog, the 10x IRA Sprint Car Champ, to run the B-main after a 5th place finish in his heat race. The North Pole Nightmare started the B-Main in the 9th position and moved up four positions to advance to the Tuscarora 50 A-main in the final transfer position. In the 50 lap finale, Bill would find his stride, running all three lanes of the Port Royal Speedway to advance +15 positions, capping his first Tuscarora 50 with an exciting eighth place finish.

“Running the B-Main really helped us, we were fast and could tell the changes we made were going in the right direction. The car was so good early in the 50 lap feature, I wanted to take care of the tires, but after the midpoint red flag the tires looked good and we were able to be more aggressive and really have some fun. I was glad we could get up in the top ten, it was disappointing to start so far back but man, that was fun.” said Balog.

The weekend of consistent finishes provided enough driver points to move Bill into 4th place in ASCoC season points standings.

“It’s been really helpful keeping the car and hauler with Matt & Kahla Miller in Pennsylvania for the last month, they’ve been great hosts. We've been able to be efficient with travel and prepare the car for the final Pennsylvania stretch of the season, it has really helped us”. said Balog, as the team continues to learn in their first season with the All Star Circuit of Champions.

In their first Tuscarora 50 the B Squared Motorsports team welcomed life-long central Pennsylvania’s Todd Olejniczak and Capital Senior Services LLC as a partner for the remainder of the season. Capital Senior Services LLC and Capital Insurance Services focus on assisting businesses and individual clients in their Life and Health Insurance needs and has been a true sprint car fan and supporter for many years.

Cox Fifth at Platinum Cup

PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking part in the Platinum Cup during the 67th Gold Cup Race of Champions, Justyn Cox was able to lock into Saturday’s feature following a turbulent preliminary night, and ultimately capped the weekend with a fifth-place finish.

“It was a lot of fun to take part in the Platinum Cup and share the stage with the Outlaws over the weekend,” Justyn Cox said. “I was really happy with how things went back in the family car after some time away from it, and have to thank Rodney, and everyone that helps us out.”

Cox took to the track on Wednesday for his preliminary night, looking to tabulate enough points to lock into the Saturday night feature event. With 30-cars checked in for the opener, Cox would time the Berco Redwood/Berry Lumber/MDW backed No. 31c entry in second fastest in his time trials group.

Racing to a win in his heat race, Cox moved into the nightly redraw where the four pill put him in the second row for the 30-lap feature event. During heat race action, Cox felt something going array on his entry, so the team went to work before pushing off for the feature.

Not getting the issue rectified, Cox would have his hands full in the main as he would slip back to eighth, it what turned into a wild race. Having some breaks go his way, Cox would keep his car in the Top-10, as he closed his night out with an eighth-place finish and sat 10th in event points.

Following Thursday’s prelim, Cox still sat 10th in points, and he was safely locked into the fifth row of Saturday night’s 30-lap feature event.

On a very racy surface on Saturday, Cox would have his elbows up as he would get his Cox Family Racing entry working through the field. Getting into fifth, Cox would pressure Corey Day for the fourth position in the closing laps but could not make anything stick.

When the checkered flag was displayed to the field, Cox capped the weekend off with a fifth-place finish.

“It was kind of a bummer having a Torsion Bar go bad on us Wednesday night because that obviously kept us from really putting together a run and earning more points,” Cox said. “With that being said, still really proud of what our team accomplished against some really strong drivers.”

The Cox Racing team would like to thank Berco Redwood, Berry Lumber, Michael David Winery, Five Window Beer Company, MDW Sports, Cranked Naturals, 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 support in 2021!

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-9, Wins-0, Top 5’s-2, Top 10’s-6

ON TAP: Cox is now idle until the Fall Nationals which take place in Chico, CA on September 30th and October 1st.

Becker Records 4th and 12th Place Finishes at Platinum Cup

PETERSEN MEDIA- Competing in the Platinum Cup 360 portion of the 67th Gold Cup with Vertullo Motorsports, Sean Becker would pick up a fourth-place finish during his preliminary night on Wednesday which locked him into Saturday’s feature where he finished 12th.

“After competing for a podium, the first night, we were confident we could improve on that during Saturday’s finale,” Sean Becker said. “Unfortunately, we just didn’t seem to have the speed to do that.”

Becker’s Gold Cup kicked off on Wednesday night where he timed the Starr Property Management/Morrison Concrete backed No. 83V mount in fourth fastest in his qualifying group.

Able to pick up a couple of positions in his heat race, ‘The Shark’ would finish second, and safely transfer into the 30-lap opening night feature event where he would look to tabulate enough points to lock into Saturday’s feature.

Taking the green flag from the ninth starting position, Becker would have his elbows up as he was able to race his way through the Top-10. With the race getting interrupted by numerous stoppages, Becker would take advantage of restarts as he raced into fourth and began battling with Joel Myers, Jr for the final spot on the podium.

Unable to get into third, Becker would cap the night off with a fourth-place finish and sat fifth in points with Thursday night’s field still to race.

Playing fan and driver coach on Thursday, Becker would find himself ninth in overall points, and with the Top-16 locking in, the Roseville, CA driver would have another night to watch as his starting position on Saturday was solidified.

Taking the green flag from ninth once Saturday’s feature went green, Becker was unable to put together a similar charge as he did on Wednesday night. Battling in the Top -10, ‘The Shark’ would lose a few positions at the end of the race as he capped his weekend off with a 12th place run.

“I really do appreciate my team and the hard work the put in over the last week,” Becker said. “We will go back to the drawing board for next time, but in the bigger picture we had a lot of fun together enjoying this great event.”

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-45, Wins-1, Top 5’s- 11, Top-10’s- 24

ON TAP: Becker will return to action on the 25th when the KWS picks back up in Hanford, CA.

Perplexing mechanical issue dampens Pokorski’s Plymouth 360 Sprint Car run

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 14, 2021 – Over the course of his 29-year career, Paul Pokorski has seen pretty much everything behind the wheel of an open-wheel race car.

However, the second-to-last Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car event of the 2021 season at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. brought along a brand new scenario for the 2014 Midwest Sprint Car Association Masters Series champion in the form of a rather mysterious gear and rear-end malfunction, which hampered the Pokorski Motorsports team’s efforts throughout the night.

With 27 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars on hand, Pokorski lined up second in the second 10-lap 360 Sprint Car heat race. Pokorski used a strong start to take the lead from polesitter Justin Erickson with a low move in turn two of the opening lap.

Pokorski proceeded to build up a sizable lead over the next few laps and appeared headed for a heat race victory and berth in the evening’s 25-lap 360 Sprint Car A-main field.

However, Pokorski suddenly slowed on lap 6 when his No. 4 machine slipped out of gear. The car continued to sputter on and off over the final four circuits as the three-time Eastern Wisconsin Stock Car Winged Super Modified champion limped home to a seventh-place finish.

After the Pokorski Motorsports crew went about addressing the issue in the pit area, Pokorski lined up ninth in the 12-lap 360 Sprint Car B main, needing to finish in the top six to move on to the A main.

Pokorski used a solid start to move into eighth during the opening lap on the lightning-fast third-mile clay oval track surface. However, the gear issue appeared again on lap 7, which forced Pokorski to pull into the infield. Pokorski’s evening ended with an 11th-place showing in the B main.

“Our car kept popping out of gear, but only once it got warm,” Pokorski said. “The strange part is it would engage on its own when I would slow down. I've never had that happen before.

“It turned out to be a disappointing night, but, hey, that’s racing,” Pokorski said. “We went back to work the day after to fix the rear end issue and some minor handling issues.”

The Pokorski Motorsports team will return to action this Saturday, Sept. 18 for a Midwest Sprint Car Association event at Gravity Park Speedway in Chilton, Wis. as part of the track’s annual Chilton Fall Classic.

Second-year 360 Sprint Car competitor Alex Pokorski will return to the seat of the No. 4 car for the event.

Racing is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m.

Sponsors and supporters for the 2021 Pokorski Motorsports team are Petersen Septic Systems, Quest Engineering Inc., Goeden Auto Body, Goodwin Racing Engines, Hopf Farms, Kettle Moraine Landscaping, Novak's Service Center, Tisler Salvage Inc., Allied Bearing Corporation, RC Custom Design and Pedal Down Promotions

The Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association joins the Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig the following two nights during Championship Weekend when the A Main pays $4,000 to win on Sept. 25 and $5,000 to win on Sept. 26.

Setters Earns Two Top-Five Results During Weekend With ASCS Frontier Region

Inside Line Promotions - BILLINGS, Mont. (Sept. 14, 2021) - James Setters scored his first two top-five finishes of the season with the ASCS Frontier Region last weekend during a doubleheader in Montana.

Setters guided his family owned sprint car to a runner-up result on Friday at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade before posting a fifth-place run on Saturday at Big Sky Speedway.

"I think we did pretty good," he said. "It was definitely a lot of fun and we were proud of how the weekend went."

Setters opened the action with a heat race win on Friday at Gallatin Speedway. The performance lined him up on the outside of the front row for the main event.

"I drew good for the heat race and got a good start," he said. "I basically maintained the lead.

"In the main I started second and didn't get too good of a start. I stayed with the polesitter on the outside until turn one. Two guys got underneath me so we fell to fourth. I got (Trever) Kirkland back in turns three and four that same lap and then Phil Dietz a couple of laps later."

Setters' second-place showing tied a career best with the series.

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday at Big Sky Speedway, where Setters drew the last position in a heat race.

"We drew in the back of the first heat, but I moved up a row before the race started because someone didn't start," he said. "So technically we started third and finished third. That got us into the feature redraw and I drew the No. 8 to start the feature eighth.

"Most of my passing I did on the starts, getting underneath people in turns one and two. I got one car each restart. It was definitely nice getting a top five and at the end we were right there battling with the ASCS Frontier Region champion Logan Forler and with Tyler Driever, who finished second in points."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 10 - Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont. - Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 2 (2).

Sept. 11 - Big Sky Speedway in Billings, Mont. - Heat race: 3 (5); Feature: 5 (8).

Ramey Continuing to Learn Following First Start at Lee County Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - DONNELLSON, Iowa (Sept. 14, 2021) - Gunner Ramey joined the Sprint Invaders last Saturday night at Lee County Speedway, where he made his first career start.

Ramey entered the race riding a streak of four consecutive top 10s. The Terry Doogs Racing driver finished where he started - second - in a heat race, which narrowly missed the dash by one position.

Ramey lined up ninth of the 20 drivers to make the feature and he spent much of the race mired in the middle of the field. Ramey, along with most of the other competitors, ran the top line next to the guardrail and a razor-thin cushion with little opportunity to make passes.

"The track was super slick all night," he said. "We had to rip the top and bounce the car off the guardrail in turns one and two."

Ramey wound up 11th during a performance he said should have been better.

"I definitely need to drive the car harder and find the limit without crashing and tearing up our equipment," he said. "I wasn't racing the track how I needed to be as a driver."

The night also emphasized how key starting position is, particularly on tricky tracks.

"If I had gotten one more position in the heat race that would've put us in the dash and from there within the first few rows to start the feature," he said. "It's really hard to win races outside the first few rows and starting mid-pack just makes it even tougher."

Ramey will have a short turnaround and an opportunity to put the knowledge to the test again this week at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., as he is slated to run the 11th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this Thursday through Saturday with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour and ASCS Warrior Region.

It will mark the third time Ramey has competed in the Hockett/McMillin Memorial and the second behind the wheel of the No. 21 winged sprint car. His first start came in a non-winged sprint car.

"I'm really hoping the third time's the charm," he said. "This track has haunted me a little bit in the past. We've always had some sort of bad luck to where we don't get to show what we have. I've known the Hockett's all my life and grew up going to this race as a spectator every year. To do it now as a driver is really special and I hope we can put on a good show for all the friends and family that are going to be there."

The event also marks an important weekend for points. Ramey trails Austin O'Neal by one point in the ASCS Warrior Region championship standings with just four races remaining.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 11 - Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa - Heat race: 2 (2); Feature: 11 (9).

Driever produced a solid weekend in Montana during the final two rounds of the ASCS Frontier Region season, beginning on Friday when he advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race and from sixth to fifth place in the main event at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade.

"It rained right before our heat so the track was one lane and no one did much passing at all," he said. "Going into the main event we only had one race between our heat race and the main event so the track was the same deal. It was stomp and steer with little to no passing."

Driever made the most of the situation for his 10th top five of the season.

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Big Sky Speedway, where he placed second in a heat race.

"Our car was pretty locked down in the heat race, but Logan (Forler) got me there in the end to win it," he said. "We drew the No. 7 in the feature redraw to line up seventh. We made some passes pretty quickly. I was up to third after Logan spun, but he got me again toward the end so we finished fourth. I was happy with our run."

Driever will take the next month off before wrapping up his season Oct. 21-23 at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif., during the Trophy Cup.

Hagar Captures Ralph Henson Memorial at I-30 Speedway for Third Time

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Sept. 14, 2021) - Derek Hagar became the first three-time winner of the Ralph Henson Memorial thanks to a strong showing at I-30 Speedway last Saturday.

Hagar was victorious nearly every time he hit the track during the 14 th edition of the marquee ASCS Mid-South Region event.

"We had a good car and started third in the heat race," he said. "We got by Marshall (Skinner) for the lead about three laps into it and won the heat race, which put us third in points. I drew the No. 4 for the pole shuffle. I was able to knock the top three cars out and get the pole position for the feature, which was key because the track took rubber in the 305 race. I just knew I needed to hit my marks and save my tires."

Hagar placed fifth in the Race of Champions that was held midway through the show.

"I didn't want to tip off anything so I just played it safe," he said. "The biggest focus was on winning the feature."

Hagar made the most out of lining up on the pole for the 25-lap feature.

"We led the distance," he said. "On the last lap I got bottled up behind a lapped car. Jordon (Mallett) showed me his nose going into turn three, but I was able to get by the lapped car. I moved my corner up anticipating the lapped car moving up. I was able to squirt by him and get some breathing room coming to the checkered.

"We were hit with a lot of bad news last Wednesday. The Wilson's are a big part of our family so to go out there and get a win for them and take Jacob to Victory Lane with us was special. There were some tears shed and laughter in Victory Lane. We put a sticker on the side of the hood and I made sure that wasn't covered up. Jacob was there with us and helping us get that win."

Hagar is aiming to continue his momentum this Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., during the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. He won the winged event in 2014 and swept the weekend in non-wing competition in 2015.

Hill Eager to Compete at Hockett/McMillin Memorial This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - SIX NATIONS, Ontario, Canada (Sept. 14, 2021) - Alex Hill is looking forward to returning to competition during the three-day Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial hosted by Lucas Oil Speedway beginning Thursday.

"I'm really excited to get back in the car, especially at Lucas Oil Speedway," Hill said of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event in Wheatland, Mo. "It's one of my favorite tracks."

Hill will be looking to improve on her performance at last year's event when she fell just a few positions short of making the Saturday night A Main. After being hampered by a slow start on the opening night, the Hill's Racing Team driver was able to move forward in each of her final four races of the event.

"We did pretty well there last year once we got going," she said. "Things had changed a little since we had last raced there and it took us a little while to get comfortable with the car and track. That got us a little behind at the beginning, but we got better pretty much each time we raced."

Hill has shown speed in most of her recent competitions and she's hoping to carry that into the marquee sprint car event, which drew nearly 80 competitors last year.

"We've shown improvement this year and I'm hoping that will continue this weekend," she said.

Dover Posts Best ASCS National Tour Result in Nearly Five Years

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 14, 2021) - Jack Dover recorded his best Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour feature finish since October 2016 last Friday at I-80 Speedway.

Dover garnered a runner-up result during the Bobby Parker Memorial, which kicked off a doubleheader at his home track.

"We had two heat races," he said. "I started in the back (ninth) of the first heat race and got up to fourth. In the second heat we started second and we won that. Come feature-time we started third. The track was pretty good and everybody was really fast. We rode around and once we burned some fuel off the car got really good. Around Lap 20 we were doing slide jobs with Chris Martin for second. I was finally able to get by him with three laps to go. I was 3.1 seconds behind the leader and at the checkered flag we were only two seconds behind so we were really good.

"Obviously our goal every time we go out is to win, but to come out second against the caliber of cars that were there, we were really pleased."

Dover's second-place showing was his 24th top five of the season and his best run with the ASCS National Tour since a runner-up result on Oct. 1, 2016, at I-80 Speedway.

He returned to the track on Saturday for the Casey's Midwest Fall Brawl. A charge from seventh to fourth place in a heat race ranked Dover ninth in points.

"We were really close to getting the third-place car, but came up a lap or two short," he said. "That put us ninth in points and we just missed the feature redraw by one. Early on in the feature we were running seventh. About Lap 5 my quick change gear in the rear end broke so that ended the race for us."

Dover was in contention for at least a top 10 prior to the race-ending problem that relegated him to a 22nd-place result.

Next up for Dover is the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo.

"We're always like a seventh to 10th-place car," he said. "As much as we've learned I feel we have a good shot at running in the top five. I'm feeling really good going into this weekend."

Sept. 10 - I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. - Heat race #1: 4 (9); Heat race #2: 1 (2); Feature: 2 (3).

Sides Closing California Swing With Race at Keller Auto Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - CHICO, Calif. (Sept. 14, 2021) - Jason Sides wraps up his first visit to California in two years this weekend with a race at Keller Auto Speedway.

The dirt oval in Hanford hosts the Tom Tarlton Classic on Saturday before the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series returns east.

"I'm looking forward to it," he said. "I know Peter (Murphy) has been doing a good job at that track. I've watched a few races online. We want to get in and out of there with a clean night. A top 10 would be nice."

Sides last competed at the track in March 2019. He charged from 23 rd to sixth during his previous appearance at Keller Auto Speedway in March 2017.

Sides competed at the Gold Cup Race of Champions last weekend at Silver Dollar Speedway, where he advanced forward both nights to finish 19 th in the A Main.

"Qualifying put us behind both nights," he said. "The first day the track was greasy and started going slick really quick with a big curb. The second night I tiptoed when the sun was peaking through. I really couldn't see where to enter. Not qualifying well just puts you in the back of the heat and it's an uphill climb the rest of the night."

Sides qualified 24th quickest and gained a spot in a heat race to place fifth, which locked him into the main event on Friday. He picked up one position in the feature to end 19th.

The next night began with the 29th quickest qualifying time. Sides maneuvered from eighth to seventh in a heat race, from fifth to second in the Last Chance Showdown and from 22nd to 19 th in the main event.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 10 - Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif. - Qualifying: 24; Heat race: 5 (6); Feature: 19 (20).

Dominic Scelzi Produces Strong Week of Racing During Gold Cup

Inside Line Promotions - CHICO, Calif. (Sept. 14, 2021) - Dominic Scelzi earned a pair of top-five results during 360ci winged sprint car competition and a seventh-place showing with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series last week at Silver Dollar Speedway, which hosted the Gold Cup Race of Champions.

Scelzi competed at the quarter-mile oval during four straight nights beginning Wednesday with the first of two 360 sprint car shows. He set quick time during qualifying before advancing from fourth to third place in a heat race. That lined him up on the inside of the fourth row for the main event.

"We qualified good and ran good in the heat," he said. "In the main event we were trying to change some stuff to get us better when the track is rough like that. We ended up hitting a hole and went off the track. We weren't able to recover so I pulled off."

Scelzi was credited with a 20th-place result. However, he was able to use Thursday's program as a mulligan.

"We rebounded decent," he said. "We were third quick in qualifying and won the heat race. In the feature we started seventh and got to second. We tried to pass for the lead, but we fell back to third and then a caution came out. We got back to second twice, but yellows negated the pass each time. Late in the race I found the rubber and was right on first and second. We had a yellow with two laps to go and I had burned my tires off so we fell back to fifth."

The fifth-place result was the 40th top five of the season for Scelzi and it locked him into the 360 A Main on Saturday.

In the meantime, Scelzi raced with the World of Outlaws on Friday. He timed in 21st quickest and placed fifth in a heat race to advance into the main event.

"We started off really bad in qualifying and weren't much better in the heat race, but we made it through," he said. "Then we were phenomenal in the feature. We changed some stuff with the balance and I felt really good. I felt like we were a top-five car so that was super good."

Scelzi hustled from 17th to seventh to garner his first top 10 of the season with the World of Outlaws.

The event finale on Saturday featured another stellar run in 360 competition as Scelzi maneuvered from seventh to second in the main event.

"Our car was really good and the race track was outstanding," he said. "I knew we had the best car and I felt I did everything right. You can't scrub speed or get over the cushion. You can't burn your tires off. We ran the leader down in traffic and the yellow came out when I felt it was going to be where the race was won or lost. We only had about five laps to go. I did everything I could to get by him. We slid him for the lead on the last corner and just wasn't able to clear him."

The night also showcased Scelzi making the World of Outlaws main event. He qualified 10th quickest, placed third in a heat race and ended the night 15th in the feature after battling for a top 10 for most of the race.

"We qualified good and were pretty good in the heat race," he said. "I felt we'd be really good in the main event. I felt like the cards were aligning. They reworked the track and we felt it'd go back to what it was. It stayed fast for 25 laps. We were too tight and I burned my tires off. Once the track went away I was floundering. I had used up my tires and we were just hanging on."

Next up for Scelzi is the Tom Tarlton Classic this Saturday at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, Calif.

Gravel Guides Big Game Motorsports to Victory Lane During Gold Cup Opener

Inside Line Promotions - CHICO, Calif. (Sept. 14, 2021) - David Gravel earned his first career feature victory at Silver Dollar Speedway last Friday during the Gold Cup Race of Champions opener.

It marked the 12th win of the season for Big Game Motorsports and the ninth during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition.

The night began with Gravel qualifying sixth quickest. A runner-up result in a heat race locked him into the dash. Although Gravel pulled the second-highest number - seven - he moved forward two positions in the dash to garner the fifth starting position in the 35-lap A Main.

"I was happy to be in the dash and be in the hunt," he said. "Getting that extra shot at the race track is huge to be able to figure out our car. We felt we were pretty good in the dash and we fine-tuned it for the feature. We had a pretty educated guess."

Gravel used the bottom of the track to his advantage and took the lead on Lap 17. He held onto the top spot throughout traffic and a late restart en route to his 67th career World of Outlaws win.

"I knew there was grip down there," he said. "I just stayed patient. I felt it'd get better. I was able to get rolling in traffic. Those guys were up the track and I had the bottom to myself. I was in fifth and then in fourth and before you know it was in the lead. It's cool how it worked out. I was the most patient to run the bottom in turns three and four and it paid off for me."

The event wrapped up on Saturday. Gravel timed in 11th quickest. A third-place result in a heat race gave him the 11th starting position into the main event. He battled just outside of the top 10 throughout the feature before ending 12th.

"It seemed like the track got faster and faster in qualifying," he said. "We had to start in the second row in the heat race and weren't able to get in the dash from there. There were more laps on the track and they did a full rework on the track before the feature. We were guessing on what to do with the car and just missed it a little. I felt we had a shot for a top 10, but after a caution there with 10 or 12 laps to go it wasn't the same car and really fell off for whatever reason."

The Tom Tarlton Classic is next for Gravel as Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, Calif., hosts the event this Saturday. Gravel won the most recent World of Outlaws race at the track in March 2019.

"I like Hanford," he said. "It's probably my favorite California track. I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully we can qualify good and get a good night in."

Kaleb Johnson Posts Podium Performance at Jerry Richert Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (Sept 13, 2021) - A third-place finish at the 21st annual Jerry Richert Memorial last Saturday continued a string of top runs at Cedar Lake Speedway for Kaleb Johnson.

"We had a pretty good night," he said. "For whatever reason, we've always done well at Cedar Lake. This was our fourth time there with our own car and it was our worst finish. We finished second the other three times. I really enjoy racing there."

Advancing from his fourth starting position in his heat race was key to Johnson's eventual podium finish in the main event.

"We were able to move up to second in our heat race, which gave us enough passing points to qualify for the feature redraw and one of my crew guys drew the No. 2," he said.

Johnson started on the front row alongside Chris Graf while veteran Brooke Tatnell lined up third.

"I spun my tires really bad on the start and I dropped to third behind Chris and Brooke going into the first turn," he said. "I eventually had a pretty good race with Brooke for a while before we let Justin Henderson sneak by us.

"I got by Chris later for third and stayed behind Brooke by about half a straightaway for the last part of the race. It was a pretty good race for us, but I made a couple of mistakes that I wish I could have back."

Johnson raced approximately six-and-a-half hours away at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., the previous night during the Bobby Parker Memorial with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

"The surface at I-80 was kind of weird," he said. "It never really slicked off for some reason. It was mainly hammer-down around the top for most of the night. The format had us running two heat races. We went from sixth to third in the first one, but dropped a spot from fourth to fifth in the second. They used combined passing points for those two races to line up the feature and we started 13th.

"We got up to ninth after passing Carson McCarl on the bottom with about five or six laps to go, but I stayed down there too long and Carson got back by me along with another car. We finished 11th, which wasn't great, but it was better than our other two times there this year when we didn't finish."

Johnson will race with the ASCS National Tour again on Tuesday at Clay County Fair Speedway in Spencer, Iowa - a track where he had success in his 305ci sprint car - before moving on to the Rapid Nationals at Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa, this Saturday.

"We've raced in Spencer a few times before - once in a 360 and the other times in a 305," he said. "We've always done all right there. Spencer is where I won my last race in a 305 three years ago.

"We've raced twice at Rocky this year and finished second and third. We're hoping to improve on that a bit."

Williamson Focusing on Taking Next Step Forward at Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - COLUMBIA, Mo. (Sept. 13, 2021) - Garet Williamson is riding a wave of confidence into the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this weekend.

The Bryant Paver Motorsports driver is refreshed after taking last weekend off and rejuvenated following a pair of podium finishes the previous weekend. Next up is one of the biggest Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour events in his home state as Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., hosts the spectacle this Thursday through Saturday.

"I wouldn't say we've totally struggled there, but we haven't had a good starting spot and been up front and been a contender," he said. "The last couple of weeks we've shown speed and built confidence so I'm looking forward to seeing how this weekend goes."

Williamson posted a 12th-place result during a preliminary night of the event last year before he finished 15th during the finale.

"Normally we've been good around the top and the bottom hasn't been too good the last couple of years I've been there," he said. "The track races really different compared to everything else. You have to be up front early so you can be there at the end."

Williamson said his goal is to not only improve on his career-best 12 th-place result at the track, he is aiming to finish much closer to the front.

"I think it'd be nice to run in the top five Saturday night if not be on the podium," he said. "We have the car to do it and I'm confident we can be a contender."

Tanner Carrick Impresses with World of Outlaws at Gold Cup Race of Champions

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night in Chico, CA, Tanner Carrick’s star was shining bright as he went toe-to-toe with the best drivers in the World during the Gold Cup Race of Champions feature event. Carrick found himself out front and pulling away until a safety issue with his fuel cell forced him to relinquish the lead on the 25th lap.

“Saturday night we were in a really good position to possibly get an Outlaw win, but we had a little misfortune with our fuel cell that Outlaw officials ultimately deemed unsafe, and it took us out of the lead,” Tanner Carrick said. “I really have to thank all of the people that work on this car for the gains we have made with our 410 program the last few nights.”

Saturday night, Carrick got off to a great start with ‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’ as he timed the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83t machine in 4th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, the Lincoln, CA driver would pick up a second-place finish to Brad Sweet, and he would safely transfer into the 40-lap Gold Cup feature event, and also earned a berth in the all-important DirtVision Fast Pass Dash.

Continuing to show speed in front of the capacity crowd, Carrick would pick up a fourth-place finish and find himself in the second row to kick off the feature event in what was only his third start with the series. Running fourth in the opening stanzas of the event, Carrick would get rolling as he forged his way into the lead on the eighth circuit as he carried a ton of speed through turns one and two.

Just past the halfway point, Carrick would find himself in a torrid battle with Brad Sweet for the top spot as they raced through traffic, but he was able to keep Sweet and then Logan Schuchart at bay until the caution flag waived on the 25th lap.

Under the stoppage, officials directed Carrick to stop on the back stretch to inspect his fuel cell. They deemed the cell too loose and directed him to the work area for a safety issue and forced him to give up the race lead with 15 laps left in the event. Carrick would not return.

“We had a ton of speed, and they definitely knew we were a factor,” Carrick said. “I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of their support. It really means a lot, and I can’t wait to try again against the Outlaws.”

Carrick was also in action on Friday night with the World of Outlaws to open up the two-day extravaganza.

Getting off to a tough start in time trials, Carrick timed in 22nd fastest before a very strong effort in his heat race saw him work into the fourth position and transfer directly into the feature event.

Lining up 14th, Carrick would work his way forward on a very racy surfacy that was provided by Silver Dollar Speedway officials. Work his way up to sixth, Carrick would make a move to crack the Top-5, but a yellow would negate his pass.

The ensuing restart saw Carrick make slight contact with the front stretch wall, but the impact was enough to knock his Jacob’s Ladder down and made the final laps tricky.

Carrick would salvage the event with an 11th place finish.

Last Wednesday night, Carrick kicked off the Gold Cup Race of Champions as he checked in for 360ci action. Timing in fourth fastest in his group, Carrick would line up in the second row of his heat race.

Racing to a third-place finish, the Lincoln, CA product would move into the opening night feature event where he took the green flag from the 12th starting spot.

Working his way towards the front and looking to earn enough event points to lock into Saturday’s feature event, Carrick would slice and dice his way up to sixth. Looking to get into the Top-5, Carrick would trip up on a rut in turns one and two that resulted in him getting upside down as he ended Wednesday night with a 14th place finish.

“It was a good week of racing, and fun to get in three nights in Chico, CA,” Carrick said. “Big thanks to everyone who continues to support our racing program.”

Tanner Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, Interstate Oil, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Emerald, Timberworks Construction, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 54, Wins: 6, Top 5’s: 24, Top 10’s: 31

ON TAP: At the time of press, Carrick’s next event is TBD.

Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports highlight USAC Nationals with 14th-place score in $20,000 finale

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (September 13, 2021) – It was a long haul to the Mount Rushmore State from Pleasant Hill, Ohio, but Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports made the best of their USAC Nationals appearance at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, and capped the three-race campaign with a 14th-place score in the $20,000-to-win finale on Sunday, September 12. Westfall started 18th on Sunday’s 40-lap grid, earning his way into the big dance with a third-place finish during his respective heat race.

Quickly becoming acclimated with the state-of-the-art complex, Westfall ignited his weekend at Huset’s Speedway with a 17th-place score on Friday, followed by another feature start on Saturday; Westfall was scored 23rd.

“I just want to thank Ray Marshall for giving us the opportunity to join USAC at Huset’s over the weekend. It was a long haul, but we’re already looking forward to the chance to do it again. We built a pretty solid notebook, so if we get to go back, we’ll be ready,” Westfall explained, driver of Ray Marshall’s Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/Bumblebee Express No. 33M sprint car. “Racing against USAC is never an easy task. It’s the best of the best and you have to take advantage of every lap on the track. We’ll regroup this week and get ourselves ready to go.”

An upcoming schedule for Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports has not been finalized. A Saturday night visit to Fremont Speedway for Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) competition is a likely destination. Westfall is a former BOSS Series champion, as well as a recent BOSS Series feature winner at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. One night prior to his Pittsburgh victory, Westfall was second during BOSS action at Lernerville Speedway.

Hobaugh second in Sharon Speedway’s Apple Festival Nationals

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

CHICORA, Pa. (September 13, 2021) – Despite a tough start to the weekend that included a scratch and “DNF” finish during Port Royal Speedway’s Tuscarora 50 preliminary events on Thursday and Friday, September 9-10, Chicora, Pennsylvania’s George Hobaugh rebounded in a big way on Saturday night and earned yet another top-five score at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, this time finishing second in the Apple Festival Nationals finale.

Hobaugh, a recent winner at Sharon Speedway on May 15, climbed from sixth to earn his podium outcome, finishing just behind former World of Outlaws champion and recent World of Outlaws winner, Dave Blaney. A caution with seven circuits remaining gave Hobaugh a firm opportunity to capture the race lead, but Blaney proved to be just a touch too strong.

Joining a stout contingent of Western Pennsylvania’s finest, Hobaugh kicked-off the evening’s program with a heat race victory.

A crash in Friday’s Night Before the Tuscarora 50 C-Main was the final factor in Hobaugh’s decision to visit Sharon for the Apple Festival Nationals.

“We intended on being at Port Royal for all three nights of the Tuscarora 50, but after Friday’s crash, we decided it was in our best interest to pack up and head back west. We know Sharon and we’ve been successful there all season. I think it ended up being the right call considering,” George Hobaugh said, driver of the Hobaugh Motorsports, Krill Recycling, Laskowski Plumbing, Ridgeview Security, Hobaugh’s Auto Parts, Colliers Custom Kitchen and Bath, No. 40 sprint car. “I’m not sure we were better than Dave (Blaney), but we never really allowed him to get out of reach. It was a great night regardless and I’m proud of this team.

“I’m not sure of a plan for next week, but we’ll make a decision within the next few days.”

A potential outlook for the coming weekend includes a return trip to Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania, on Friday, September 17. Hobaugh’s last visit to the Western Pennsylvania staple ended with a ninth-place result on Friday, September 3.

(September 13, 2021) – Joining the best that sprint car racing has to offer, Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports made the most of their three-day weekend at Port Royal Speedway for the 54th Tuscarora 50, cashing in for a pair of All Star Circuit of Champions A-Main starts, one of which the 50-lap, $54,000-to-win finale on Saturday, September 11. Although not qualifying directly, Whittall’s season-long dedication to the Juniata County “Speed Palace” granted the New Jersey-native a provisional starting position; he would go on to finish 21st.

In addition, Whittall, driver of the JW Motorsports, JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Brotherton Brewing Company, Beechwood Landscape Architecture and Construction LLC, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, FK Rod Ends, Stilo Helmets, Keizer Aluminum Wheels, Enterprise, Ground Blind Boys, No. 67 sprint car, earned an A-Main starting position in Friday’s Night Before the Tuscarora 50, winning the evening’s B-Main handily to do so. An early retirement would score Whittall 27th in the running order.

An average car count of 52 made the call for Tuscarora 50 weekend including a 57-car field for Saturday’s finale.

“It was a wild weekend, for sure, but I’m proud of our efforts. The Tuscarora 50 is an event everyone has circled on their calendar. That was no different for us. We’ve been excited for that race for months and we’re already looking ahead to next year,” Whittall said, a recent Williams Grove Speedway winner on June 4. “I can’t thank everyone enough for their hard work and support, including my team, my family, and all of our dedicated partners. We have another big weekend ahead, so we’ll reground and work for another win beginning Friday.”

As it stands, Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports plan to rejoin the All Star Circuit of Champions for another Central Pennsylvania blockbuster on Friday and Saturday, September 17-18. The plan includes the rescheduled Jack Gunn Memorial at Williams Grove Speedway, followed by the $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic at Lincoln Speedway.

2021 Wins: 1 (Williams Grove Speedway | June 4)


Dietrich perseveres for Tuscarora 50 A-Main start; BAPS, Williams Grove, and Lincoln visits on deck

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (September 13, 2021) – Although a tough start to his Tuscarora campaign that included a scratch on Thursday, followed by a missed qualifying attempt during the Night Before the Tuscarora 50 B-Main on Friday, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich rebounded big on Saturday and ultimately raced his way into Port Royal Speedway’s 50-lap, $54,000-to-win Tuscarora 50 main event, securing his place on the All Star Circuit of Champions grid with a B-Main victory.

Dietrich, the 2021 Labor Day Classic champion at the “Speed Palace,” was forced to compete in Saturday’s B-Main after missing a heat race transfer spot by one position. The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native would go on to win the consolation B-Main, eventually capping his evening with a five-spot bump in the 50-lapper; Dietrich finished 14th.

Nearly perfecting his own version of alphabet soup, Dietrich did his best to qualify for the Night Before the Tuscarora 50, first transferring out of the evening’s C-Main, then making an impressive rally from 19th to seventh in the B-Main, just three spots shy of a transfer position.

“It wasn’t the weekend we wanted by any means, but to come out of there with an A-Main start on Saturday is better than what it could have been. It all starts with qualifying. You miss it by a few and it really sets you back. Lucky for me, I have a team that never gives up. We put Thursday and Friday behind us and did what we had to do to get in on Saturday,” Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, Graver’s Garage, Racer’s New & Used Parts Warehouse, No. 48 sprint car. “We’ll reset this week and work to get a win beginning Thursday at BAPS.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with another three-race sweep through the Keystone State, this time visiting BAPS Motor Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway, and Lincoln Speedway in consecutive fashion on Thursday through Saturday, September 16-18. Thursday’s Greg Hodnett Foundation Dirt Classic Qualifier will get the weekend underway, followed by Williams Grove’s Jack Gunn Memorial – another Dirt Classic qualifier – on Friday. The Dirt Classic, awarding a $20,000 payday, will take over headlines in the Pigeon Hills on Saturday.

Zearfoss looks ahead to $21,000-to-win Tom Tarlton Classic at Keller Auto Speedway

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (September 13, 2021) – Despite a tough outing in Silver Dollar Speedway’s Gold Cup Race of Champions, highlighting the weekend with a 16th-place score during Friday’s preliminary, the “Jonestown Jet” Brock Zearfoss has 21,000 reasons to reset his mind and regroup, as Keller Auto Speedway’s $21,000-to-win Tom Tarlton Classic will hit high gear for the Greatest Show On Dirt on Saturday, September 18.

A bittersweet weekend in the Golden State, the five-figure visit to Hanford, California, will conclude the 2021 World of Outlaws West Coast Swing.

Zearfoss, driver of the Brock Zearfoss Racing, Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., Meckley’s Limestone Products, Berkebile Oil Company, Klick Lewis Cars, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, X-1 Race Cars, Simpson Racing Products, KX3 Racewear, BK Titanium, Blud Lubricants, AL Driveline, Bruce’s Speed Shop, RV 4 Wheel Drive, No. 3Z sprint car, will enter the Tom Tarlton Classic ninth in the current World of Outlaws driver standings, padded by 20 top-ten finishes to date.

“It was a tough weekend in Chico, but we enjoyed the experience and we’re already looking forward to getting back there hopefully next year,” Brock Zearfoss said, who owns one-career World of Outlaws victory. “It’s been a fun trip along the West Coast, but the plan is to leave California $21,000 richer. We’re due for a big one, so we’ll do what we can to give all of our supporters back on the east coast something to be proud of.”

Once Zearfoss’ West Coast trip is complete, the Jonestown, Pennsylvania-native will immediately begin his trek home, set to visit Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, and Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania, on Friday and Saturday, September 24-25. Williams Grove Speedway’s annual National Open will highlight action on Friday and Saturday, October 1-2. The National Open finale will award a $75,000 payday.

“I think we’re all ready to sleep in our own bed,” Zearfoss continued. “And to get a win at home…that’s the ultimate goal.”

Abreu finds top-ten twice during Tuscarora weekend including $54,000-to-win finale; BAPS, Williams Grove, Lincoln next

Dates: Thursday through Saturday, September 9th-11th
Event: 54th Annual Tuscarora 50
Series: All Star Circuit of Champions
Track: Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pennsylvania)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finishes (Start):
Thursday: 7th (20th)
Friday: 24th (5th)
Saturday: 9th (1st)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (September 13, 2021) - The long tow from Burlington, Washington, to Port Royal, Pennsylvania, proved to be well worth the effort for St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu, as the pilot of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Rowdy Energy/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Wiser Agency/Self Made Racing/No. 24 sprint car cashed in for top-ten finishes twice during Port Royal Speedway’s three-day Tuscarora 50 blockbuster, capping all highlights with a ninth-place performance in Saturday’s 50-lap, $54,000-to-win finale featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions.

Impressive enough, Abreu, who won one of six heat races contested on Saturday night, led the first 11 circuits of the historic Tuscarora 50, fading slightly to ninth after starting from the pole position. Abreu’s heat race victory allowed the West Coast hotshoe to draw for one of the top six starting positions; he pulled the one.
Kicking the weekend off in a big way, Abreu rallied from 20th to finish seventh in Thursday’s $8,000-to-win Tuscarora 50 preliminary, ultimately earning the evening’s Hard Charger Award for advancing the most feature positions.

Abreu was well on his way to a potential top-five outcome in Friday’s Night Before the Tuscarora 50, but incidental contact with another competitor caused Abreu to spin, as well as puncture a tire. The tire was fixed and Abreu returned, but he eventually retired; Abreu was scored 24th.

“Man, we love racing in Central Pennsylvania. The fans treat us like their own and we love having the opportunity to connect with everyone. We were close a few times this weekend, just couldn’t quite capitalize,” Rico Abreu said, who owns a Knoxville Raceway victory in 2021. “I’m excited to continue our schedule with another full slate in Pennsylvania. It’s been an up and down year, for sure, but to get a win in PA, in front of all of the awesome fans, would ice the cake. I’m ready to get at it.”

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with another three-race sweep through the Keystone State, this time visiting BAPS Motor Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway, and Lincoln Speedway in consecutive fashion on Thursday through Saturday, September 16-18. Thursday’s Greg Hodnett Foundation Dirt Classic Qualifier will get the weekend underway, followed by Williams Grove’s Jack Gunn Memorial - another Dirt Classic qualifier - on Friday. The Dirt Classic, awarding a $20,000 payday, will take over headlines in the Pigeon Hills on Saturday.

Lucas Oil Speedway plays host to 11th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial for ASCS, WAR sprints


WHEATLAND, MO. (Sept. 13, 2021) - It's an annual fall, three-day tradition that puts Sprint cars - both the winged and non-winged variety - in the Lucas Oil Speedway spotlight. And it's almost here.

The 11th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial, featuring the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series Presented by MAVTV Motorsports Network and the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints, is set for Thursday through Saturday.

The event honors the legacy of Jesse Hockett, from Warsaw, Missouri, who was a star in both the winged and non-wing sprint divisions when he lost his life in a shop accident in 2010. His cousin and crew chief, Daniel McMillin, was killed in an automobile accident in 2006.

Blake Hahn of Sapulpa, Oklahoma, winner of the 2019 Hockett/McMillin Memorial, holds the lead in the ASCS National championship standings entering the weekend with a 63-point margin over Matt Covington of Glenpool, Oklahoma. J.J. Hickle of Quilcene, Washington, is only 76 points in back of Hahn.

Hahn has six ASCS National Tour feature victories and 18 top-five finishes in 32 events following his first-place finish on Saturday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska.

Two other drivers aren't in the points championship battle, but are worth keeping an eye on this weekend. Series veteran Scott Bogucki of Mclaren Vale, South Africa, has four feature wins in just 15 events after missing several races earlier in the summer due to neck and back injuries following a crash at Riverside Speedway in West Memphis, Arkansas.

Sitting 10th in points, one spot behind Bogucki, is 15-year-old Ryan Timms of Oklahoma City. Timms has stamped himself as a rising star in open-wheel racing this year with five ASCS National Tour feature wins in 15 attempts.

On the POWRi WAR (Wingless Auto Racing) division, Mario Clouser of Chatham, Illinois, leads the championship battle by 100 points over Xavier Domey of Odessa, Missouri. Clouser has picked up six feature win in 14 events. Riley Kreisel of Warsaw is third in points but a distant 420 points in back of Clouser.

Two other Missourians, while running a limited WAR national schedule, will be among those to watch. Wesley Smith of Nixa and Kory Schudy of Battlefield sit fourth and fifth in points, respectively, but both have three feature wins to their credit.

This year there will be no split qualifying nights with all drivers in both the ASCS winged and POWRi WAR wingless divisions competing both Thursday and Friday as combined points from heat races, qualifiers, B-mains and A-mains will help set the lineup for Saturday night’s ASCS $10,000-to-win main event and $3,077-to-win WAR feature.

On year ago, Sam Hafertepe Jr. captured his third Hockett-McMillin ASCS victory while Garrett Aitken earned the POWRi WAR final-night feature win.

By Jim Balentine

He was also the winner of the famous western Pennsylvania sprint car championship five times winning in 1966 1967 1968 1969 and 1979!! His wins are so incredible that in the history of Mercer from records going back to 1966 the closest driver to him in sprint wins is the great Lou Blaney with 45!! In the modifieds he is still third all time with 48 wins and only Lou Blaney and Tommy Kristyak have more!!

There will be commemorative Ralph Quarterson memorial tshirts for sale as well.
This will be a cant miss show for the history books as we honor the life and career of one of the greatest drivers ever to compete in this area!!!

BRODY ROA GETS TWO MORE PODIUM FINISHES IN TRIP TO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

(Cypress, CA, September 11, 2021) Brody Roa and his BR Performance team journeyed to Northern California for a trio of races over Labor Day weekend. When the final checkered flag fell on Monday night at Petaluma Speedway, the personable driver had recorded two more podium finishes giving him a total of 13 in 19 Sprint Car starts in 2021.

The first two nights of the trip were at the “13th Annual Louie Vermeil Classic” on the ¼ mile Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico. On Saturday night, Roa timed 12th fastest of the 35 cars on hand with a lap of 13.482. He proceeded to win his heat race, but due to his qualifying time, he was forced to start 11th in the 30-lap main event. From the drop of the green flag, the veteran racer moved forward and placed sixth in the A main. It was his first finish outside of the top three in USAC/CRA competition since he broke early in the race at Perris Auto Speedway on April 24th.

The following night got off to a better start for the Garden Grove, California racer when he qualified third fastest in the 30-car field with a time of 13.750. Roa followed that up with a second-place finish in his heat race. That earned him a ticket on the inside of the third row for the main event. In the main, he worked his way forward until he found himself in second place late in the race. He advanced one spot farther when he took the lead on a lap-29 restart. At that point he seemed to have things in hand, but an incident in turn one on the last lap pushed him back to a very frustrating third-place finish.

The 30-year-old finished the holiday weekend at the annual USAC/CRA Series race at the Petaluma Speedway on Monday night. Qualifying bit Roa at the finale when he stopped the clocks at 14.574. That was only good for ninth amongst the 15 cars who took times. He got some redemption for his qualifying effort by smoking the field to win his heat race by a wide margin. It was his fifth heat race win in the series this year. For the main event, he started on the inside of row five in ninth. Just like the previous two nights, “The Pride of Garden Grove” moved forward in the main and drove all the way to another third-place finish.

Roa goes into the next race at Perris Auto Speedway on September 25th in second place in the championship standings. He is only 24-points out of first and he has a 76-point margin between himself and the third-place driver.

Except for the first race at Perris when he was knocked out early due to a parts failure, Roa has had a very impressive season on the Riverside County clay oval. In the four races at the track since the opener, he has two wins, one second and one third place finish. The two victories came in a pair of the track's most prestigious races. The “Salute To Indy” in May and the “California Racer’s Hall of Fame Night” in August.

Roa will have his racing shirts available in the pits after the races at Perris. To see the full line of products available via mail, including shirts, sweatshirts, caps, beanies, baby onesies, plush blankets, jigsaw puzzles, stickers, mugs, and more, please visit the team store at https://www.brodyroa.com/shop/.

Roa and the team would like to thank the following for being part of the 91R’s 2021 campaign. HD Industries, Burris Racing, Sander Engineering, Biker Bruce Fisher, Inland Rigging, ALR Virtual Services, Caltrol, Competition Suspension, K-1 Race Gear, Molecule, Rod End Supply, Baldwin Filters and Jambo BBQ Pits. In addition, the veteran driver offers thanks to Fastenal, Coopers Propane, Total Lubricants, Marina Pools, TJM Oilfield Distribution, Certex, and Biker Bruce for sponsoring the #8M.

If you or your company would like to jump on board and receive recognition throughout the year, please give the two-time USAC champion racer a phone call or drop him a note at the contact information at the top of this release. You can also contact him if you would like to put him in your car in a USAC National Series race when his west coast schedule permits.

TRENT WILLIAMS GETS THIRD IN CAS SPRINT CAR SERIES AT CENTRAL ARIZONA SPEEDWAY ON LABOR DAY WEEKEND

(Hesperia, CA, September 9, 2021) After being out of the cockpit for nearly two months, Trent Williams returned to Sprint Car racing in the CAS Series at the Central Arizona Speedway on Labor Day weekend. The 2014 Perris Auto Speedway Young Guns champion raced two straight nights on the 3/8-mile banked clay oval. On Saturday, he had a disappointing 17th place finish. Twenty-four hours later the result was much better when he took third in the main event.

While it was the first race for the Hesperia, California veteran since July 10th, it was also the first race at the track located less than an hour south of Phoenix since the end of June. Like other tracks in the “Copper State,” Central Arizona Speedway closes in July and August due to the sizzling summer temperatures. So Williams, the other drivers and fans were treated to the much cooler (?) September temperatures when the thermometer only climbed to 104 degrees on Saturday!

On Saturday night, the Cal State Fullerton graduate began the weekend by starting fourth and finishing third in his 10-lap heat race. For Saturday’s 30-lap main event, he came from the inside of the fifth row at the outset and quickly began picking off the competition as he headed towards the front of the pack. He was up to fifth in the 25-lapper when disaster struck on lap 14. A lapped car spun in front of Williams leaving him nowhere to go. He got into the spinning car and then was drilled by another car from behind. The beautiful #52V sustained too much damage to continue and the driver was forced out of the race with a 17th place finish. On the bright side, even though he was having to come through traffic, only seven other drivers had a faster lap time in the main event than the 16.389 Williams recorded on lap seven. IMG_4970 (1).JPG The tangle that knocked Trent Williams (center) out of last Saturday's CAS main event.

The Victory Boys Performance crew fixed the car, got it cleaned up and ready to race on night #2. Sunday was even hotter than Saturday when the thermometer topped out at 106 degrees! Like the weather, Williams was hot as well. He won his 10-lap heat race from the pole. That put him back on the pole for the main event. From there he led the early laps before slipping back to third on the rubber down track and that is where he finished. Only three drivers in the 19 car main event field had laps faster than “T Dub’s” best of 17.784 on the slower Sunday night surface.

Taking third gave Williams four top three finishes in his last six starts dating back to his win at the Barona Speedway on May 1st. The only two times he did not finish in the top three in those six races was when he dropped out early and did not finish the main events on May 22nd at Perris and the 17th place outing last Saturday.

Williams and the crew get the next couple of weeks off before returning to action in the USAC/CRA Series Glen Howard Memorial at Perris Auto Speedway Saturday, September 25th. He will follow that up with a race the next week at the Barona Speedway on October 2nd.

Williams would like to thank the following marketing partners for making it possible to run his Maxim Chassis/Shaver Engines #52V in the 2021 season. Victory Boys Performance, Motul, NGK Spark Plugs and Sorrento Homes. If you or your business would like to be a part of the Cal State Fullerton marketing graduate’s racing team, please call (760) 780-8782 or mailto:trent.williams.racing@gmail.com .

SPRINT CARS HEAD TO HUMBERSTONE, MERRITTVILLE, & SOMS THIS WEEKEND

Photos by Dale Calnan/www.imagefactor.ca

By Tommy Goudge (September 9, 2021) – The Pinty’s Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car series and Pinty’s Action Sprint Tour Crate Sprint Car series are set for another doubleheader weekend. Both tours will race at Humberstone Speedway on Friday live on GForceTV, and then head in different directions on Saturday; the Knights of Thunder will compete at Merrittville Speedway, and the Action Sprint Tour will travel to Southern Ontario Motor Speedway.

HUMBERSTONE FRIDAY Each series held a pair of races at Humberstone on Civic Holiday weekend during the track’s traditional All-Canadian Championship; Jordan Poirier swept the KoT portion of the weekend, while Jacob Dykstra did the same on the AST side.

The Turner brothers – Cory and Ryan – each scored a pair of top five finishes with KoT at Humberstone during the ACC weekend, while Travis Cunningham, Aaron Turkey, Jacob Dykstra, and Jim Huppunen had one top five each. Huppunen’s top five was almost a win, as Poirier snatched the victory in traffic on the last lap.

Allan Downey finished in the top five of both AST races at Humberstone, while Steven Beckett, Eric Gledhill, Brett Stratford, Curtis Gartly, Rob Neely, and Ryan Fraser had one top five each on ACC weekend.

MERRITTVILLE & SOMS SATURDAY Merrittville has hosted two Knights of Thunder events already this season, both of which were claimed by Jordan Poirier. The Quebec driver won the July 10 opener at Merrittville with relative ease, but it was a different story on August 6 when Jim Huppunen nearly ended Poirier’s winning streak; Huppunen spun late the race in the midst of an entertaining duel for the win, and Poirier was able to claim what was his fourth consecutive victory.

Poirier is the only driver with top five finishes in both KoT races held this season at Merrittville, while Liam Martin, Jamie Turner, Cory Turner, Jim Huppunen, Mack DeMan, Aaron Turkey, Josh Hansen, and Ryan Turner have one top five each this year on the tricky one-third mile.

Meanwhile, more than two years have passed since the Action Sprint Tour last competed at Southern Ontario Motor Speedway. Saturday’s event will be the first AST visit to SOMS since the track formerly known as South Buxton Raceway underwent a transformation from a semi-banked D-shaped configuration to a high-banked oval.

The Knights of Thunder series visited SOMS in August and found the new layout to be well-suited to Sprint Cars. Shone Evans and Liam Martin scored victories in the two previous AST events on the old SOMS layout but both are now racing in the Knights of Thunder series, so a new name will join the win list on Saturday.

CHAMPIONSHIP CHASES Jordan Poirier has been in the top five in all eight KoT races held in 2021 and opened the season with four straight wins, while Jacob Dykstra has won seven of the eight AST races and finished second in the other. They lead the championship standings in their respective series, but Poirier’s lead has dwindled slightly over the last few weeks.

Jim Huppunen has posted a pair of KoT wins at Brighton over the last few weeks, while DJ Christie claimed his first career 360 Sprint Car win at SOMS in August, and added another at Brighton last weekend. Poirier’s lead in the KoT championship standings now sits at 32 points over Huppunen, with Ryan Turner another 10 points behind. Travis Cunningham and Josh Hansen round out the current top five, while Christie, Holly Porter, Cory Turner, Liam Martin, and Jamie Turner hold top ten positions.

Jacob Dykstra has a commanding 74 point lead in the AST standings over Allan Downey, with Nick Sheridan another seven points behind. Eric Gledhill and Brett Stratford round out the current top five, while Jesse Costa, Lucas Smith, Rob Neely, Darren Dryden, and Dereck Lemyre hold top ten positions.

Ramey on a Roll With Fourth Consecutive Top-10 Result

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Sept. 9, 2021) - Gunner Ramey and the Terry Doogs Racing team are enjoying a four-race top-10 streak, which is their best run of the season.

Ramey visited two familiar Missouri dirt ovals last weekend with a stop at Randolph County Raceway in Moberly, Mo., on Friday for a Sprint Invaders show and Lake Ozark Speedway in on Sunday with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

The weekend began on Friday with a charge from seventh to fourth place in a heat race, which earned Ramey the fifth starting spot in the night's dash. Ramey advanced one position to end fourth, setting the No. 21 team up with good track position for the feature.

Ramey lined up fifth and spent most of the feature battling just outside the top five before a pair of late passes earned him a fourth-place result. It marked his fifth top five of the season.

"It was really hard to pass in the feature because everyone's car was pretty even out there," he said. "You had to pick and choose where you were going to try and make a pass."

Ramey returned to action on Sunday at Lake Ozark Speedway, where he advanced from third to second place in a heat race. That earned a spot into the feature redraw and he pulled the No. 6 to line up on the outside of the third row for the A Main.

"The track was super rough and treacherous out there, so I wanted to be cautious and not junk my stuff by catching a rut," he said. "It took a while to pass because of it, but it paid off just getting some more laps and keeping the car in one piece."

Ramey survived with a seventh-place showing, which was his 10th top 10 of the season.

"We've got a fast car and now that we're putting nights together we're getting the finishes that we should have been getting all year," he said. "I feel like we've made a lot of gains and are continuing to make gains, which definitely gives me confidence as a driver and the validation that I belong. It's taken some weight off my shoulders."

Ramey will race in the Ralph Henson Memorial this Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., with the ASCS Mid-South Region. He finished 11 th at the track in late July.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 3 - Randolph County Raceway in Moberly, Mo. - Heat race: 4 (7); Dash: 4 (5); Feature: 4 (5).

Sept. 5 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Heat race: 2 (3); Feature: 7 (6).

Hagar Posts Podiums at ECM Speedway and Talladega Short Track

Inside Line Promotions - EASTABOGA, Ala. (Sept. 9, 2021) - Derek Hagar earned two more podium finishes last weekend to give him 10 top fives this season.

Hagar placed second on Saturday during his debut at ECM Speedway in Bremen, Ala., before he posted a third-place result on Sunday at Talladega Short Track.

"I'm pleased with the weekend," he said. "It'd have been nice to get a couple of wins, but things didn't fall our way. Two solid podium finishes helps us get geared up for this weekend and the Hockett/McMillin Memorial coming up."

Last weekend began on Saturday with Hagar advancing from fifth to second place during a USCS Series heat race. He then won the dash to garner the pole position for the main event.

"We had a good heat race and ran second and won the dash to start on the pole for the feature," he said. "We led all but five laps. We got into traffic and I made the wrong move. Mark Smith got by me so we ended up running second."

Traffic also played a role on Sunday at Talladega Short Track, where Hagar won a heat race from second and advanced from fourth to third place in the dash. That started him on the inside of the second row in the A Main.

"We were running second and had a couple of good runs on the leader," he said. "In traffic every time I'd get beside the leader a lapped car would make a move on someone so that held me up. That's just part of racing. Then on a late restart with low air pressure I bounced and that let Mark get by me and we ended up finishing third.

"We knew the wins weren't going to come as easy this year as we're trying to do the 410 stuff, but we want to capitalize on as much stuff as we can in the 360 and contend for wins as the season begins to wind down."

Next up for Hagar is the Ralph Henson Memorial with the ASCS Mid-South Region this Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 4 - ECM Speedway in Bremen, Ala. - Heat race: 2 (5); Dash: 1 (2); Feature: 2 (1).

Sept. 5 - Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, Ala. - Heat race: 1 (2); Dash: 3 (4); Feature: 3 (3).

Wilson Charges From 24th to Sixth During All Star Show at Attica Raceway Park

Inside Line Promotions - ORRVILLE, Ohio (Sept. 9, 2021) - A pair of solid runs rejuvenated Greg Wilson last weekend.

The Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics backed driver highlighted the weekend with a charge from 24th to sixth on Saturday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, before nearly guiding Seeling Motorsports to a top-five result on Sunday at Wayne County Speedway.

The weekend began on Friday at Attica Raceway Park during the first night of a FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions doubleheader with Wilson closing the night by advancing from 14th to eighth in the B Main.

"The first night the track was a lot different than we'd seen at Attica," he said. "It was pretty wet and we didn't time in well, which has been the issue. We got better in the B Main and passed quite a few cars, but didn't pass enough to make it.

"We came back on Saturday and didn't time in very well. In the B Main we got a little bit better and were the last car to transfer into the feature. I felt like the feature could be that turning point that you are looking for. We think we figured some stuff out with the car and then we carried that over to Sunday. That allowed us to time in better, race better and we had good speed."

Wilson's hustle from seventh to fourth place in the B Main and from 24 th to sixth in the A Main on Saturday proved to be a step forward regarding more than just earning a solid result and the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

"I haven't had a mechanic in a long time," he said. "I feel like part of it is trying to develop the communication with Andy (Potter) of what he needs to hear and I need to feel in the adjustments that need to be made. We've been okay. Finally on Saturday I opened up a bit and we talked and he thought about what I was saying. He made adjustments off of that and that was a key. On Sunday we started the night off around that mindset."

Wilson qualified eighth quickest in his group and placed second in a heat race on Sunday at Wayne County Speedway. He lined up on the inside of the fourth row in the A Main and climbed into the top five before a blown power steering line ended the night early.

"We were pretty good," he said. "That was frustrating that it happened. It must have started leaking because I was getting some oil on my shield. We ran two or three more laps and then it finally came loose.

"Wayne County had some good race cars there. The track was wetter and rougher than normal, but we had tons of speed so that is really encouraging moving forward."

Wilson plans to return to Attica Raceway Park this Friday before venturing to Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio, on Saturday.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 3 - Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio - Qualifying: 22; Heat race: 9 (8); B Main: 8 (14).

Sept. 4 - Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio - Qualifying: 26; Heat race: 7 (7); B Main: 4 (7); Feature: 6 (24).

PACE RUSH LATE MODEL FLYNN'S TIRE/BORN2RUN LUBRICANTS TOURING SERIES RETURNS TO SHARON THIS WEEKEND FOR THE $4000 TO-WIN "CIDER JUG 40"; RUSH SPORTSMAN MOD HOVIS TOUR ALSO AT SHARON; RUSH SPRINTS FRI AT SHARON & SAT AT RACEWAY 7

By Mike Leone

(September 8, 2021) -

(Hartford, OH)...After a weekend off, the Pace Performance RUSH Late Model Flynn's Tire/Born2Run Lubricants Touring Series event will return to Sharon Speedway this weekend (September 10-11) for the "Cider Jug 40" presented by Zarin Truck & Automotive along with an anonymous donor in support of Autism Awareness. Race #13 will be one of the biggest races of the season paying $4,000 to-win on Saturday night after qualifying, heat races, and the dash on Friday night. This will be a big weekend at Sharon for RUSH as the RUSH Sportsman Modified Hovis Touring Series will also take part as well as the RUSH Sprint Cars on Friday night. The RUSH Sprints will then move on to Raceway 7 on Saturday night in an $800 to-win Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series special.

For the first time since 2016, the RUSH Late Model Touring Series will be part of the "Apple Festival Nationals". Last year during the event, Max Blair picked up an $800 Weekly Series victory, which was the first RUSH Late Model race at Sharon since September 16, 2016. Then just two weeks ago, Chub Frank made a last lap pass of Joe Martin to win the $3,199 "Bill Forney Memorial" over a 33-car field; that event of course marked the first Tour event at Sharon since 2016 as well.

"We are coming off one of the best Tour events we've had in recent memory for the Bill Forney Memorial," expressed RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "The racing all night was great, and everyone is anxious to return. We have to thank Zarin Truck & Auto for their involvement along with an anonymous donor in support of Autism Awareness, which boosted the purse to $4,000 to-win, $300 to-start. Jim Zarin has done a lot for RUSH in recent years including the presenting sponsor of the Jook George Steel Classic and the co-presenting sponsor of the 'Fill'er up with Sunoco Bucks" program. Also thanks to Sharon for allowing the Tour to return twice this season and their yearlong support of the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds and RUSH Sprint Cars."

Virginia racer Kyle Hardy leads the Late Models Tour to Sharon with six victories with his most recent being on August 15 at Eriez Speedway when he topped a 46-car field for "Manufacturers Night". Hardy has a 75-point lead in the $12,000 to-win championship. Martin, a former regular at Sharon when the division ran weekly with five wins, has worked his way up to second in points thanks to nine top six finishes in the last 10 events. Defending and three-time Series champion, Jeremy Wonderling, is third in points with three wins, but has struggled of late with three straight finishes of seventh or worse.

Michael Duritsky, Jr. and J.J. Mazur are fourth and fifth in points in search of their first career Tour wins. Duritsky led much of the "Bill Forney Memorial" until contact with a lapped car resulted in a flat tire. 2016 RUSH Tour champion John Waters is sixth just six points behind Mazur. Bud Watson is coming off his season best Tour finish of eighth at Sharon and has broke the tie with Ryan Frazee for seventh in points. Frazee is eighth ahead of Kyle Lukon and Cory Sines, who has broke into the top 10 in points after a career best Tour finish of fifth at the last event.

FK Rod Ends will award $100 for the fastest overall Late Model qualifier and pay $25 to each heat race winner on Friday night. The Sunoco Dash winner on Friday night will not receive a $100 Sunoco gift card, but also earn the feature pole position. Precise Racing Products will award a $100 gift card for the "Pedal Down" Hard Charger that passes the most cars in the feature. The TBM Brakes “Tough Brake of the Night” will award three bottles of Xtreme6 Racing Brake Fluid valued at approximately $45 along with a certificate for a discount off any TBM Brakes purchase.

The feature winner will receive a 5-Gallon Race Jug from Precise. Ontime Body & Graphic's "Spoiler Alert" will award a $150 spoiler kit to the 13th place finisher (note: if a driver has already won a spoiler this season, spoiler will be awarded to the next position).

One driver will be randomly selected at the drivers meeting for a $100 Sunoco gift card thanks to the "Fill'er up with Sunoco Bucks" program presented by Sunoco and Zarin Truck & Auto. Also, Performance Bodies will award a $100 gift card to the first non-qualifier as part of the "Nosed Out" program.

Even though the Sharon track points are wrapped up, the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will have a lot of points on the line this weekend. Not only is it an $800 to-win Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Touring Series event, but Hovis Weekly, Hovis "Futures Cup", and Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series points will be up for grabs.

While Wolbert has a commanding lead in the $3,500 to-win Hovis Weekly Series Championship, Jacob Wolfe leads the Tour points by just six over Tony Tatgenhorst. Wolfe has a pair of runner-up finishes in the Expo and Sharon Tour events this season, and earlier this season picked up his first career feature win at Sharon. Brandon Ritchey, who hasn't finished worse than 11th at any Raceway 7 or Sharon race this season including seven top fives currently leads the "Route 7 Rumble" points by 15 over Kole Holden. Meanwhile, 14-year-old rookie Ben Easler is atop the "Futures Cup" standings.

RUSH Sportsman Modified contingencies include the Precise Racing Products "Pedal Down" Hard Charger, Sherwood Wheels "Man of Steel", and TBM Brakes "Tough Brake of the Night".

The RUSH Sprint Cars will compete in a full show on Friday night at Sharon for $600 to-win part of the Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Championship. After veteran Rod George won the Sharon opener, it's been a season of streaks as Nolan Groves won two straight followed by two for Chad Ruhlman, and most recently a pair for seven-time "410" Sprint track champion Jarod Larson.

The RUSH Sprints will then move on to Raceway 7 on Saturday night for a rescheduled event this time paying a record $800 to-win, $160 to-start. This will be just the third appearance all-time at the Conneaut, Ohio oval as Ruhlman won the 2019 show with Larson winning in 2020.

Ruhlman, who is a two-time $5,000 RUSH Weekly Series Champion, is again leading the points, but only by four over Gale Ruth, Jr. Amazingly, Ruth, who has seven wins this season on the RUSH circuit and 13 in his career, has still never won at Sharon nor Raceway 7 and hopes to change that this weekend.

PASS Pairs With All Stars Thursday, Super Late Models Saturday

This week PA Sprint Series has an unusual Thursday-Saturday doubleheader. On Thursday the RaceSaver sprinters will join the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions at Port Royal Speedway. Then on Saturday, PASS will be at Lincoln Speedway along with super late models, 358 sprints and an Eastern Museum of Motor Racing exhibition.

Thursday’s program is the first night of three leading up to the 54th Annual Tuscarora 50 410 sprint race Saturday. The opening night also features the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions, Presented by Tedd Reitz, with racing scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m.

This will be PASS’s ninth scheduled appearance at Port Royal this year, although two races have been rained out. Dave Grube II of York Springs is the only two-time winner and the track points leader, with current overall PASS points leader and defending IMCA/RaceSaver National Champion Garrett Bard in second place.

Other past 2021 winners scheduled to race are “Nitro Nick” Sweigart, who won the 2019 Keystone RaceSaver Challenge at the Port, and 2019 PASS and IMCA/RaceSaver Champ Ken Duke Jr.

A host of other challengers will join them in what is expected to be a field of 40-50 cars, including top-five points racers Austin Reed, Kassidy Kreitz and Doug Dodson, all of whom have posted strong finishes this year.

Adult general admission for Thursday’s races is $25 ($10 for students 13-18), with pit admission set at $35. Gates will open at 4:00 p.m.

The Lincoln program is unique, with super late models leading the show and two sprint car classes running in support. This will be second and last PASS program at the Pidgeon Hills oval for 2021.

This will be the 28th race for PASS at Lincoln in a series dating to 2003; for many years one race was run July 4 weekend, but a September date has become a regular schedule feature recently.

Twenty-one different racers have won PASS events at Lincoln. The only active drivers from that group are Garrett Bard with two wins and Erin Statler with one; both are expected to race Saturday. Jaremi Hanson, who won March’s feature but is no longer driving regularly in the series, has three career wins.

Saturday’s action is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. Pit gates will open at 5:00 and grandstands at 5:30.

Adult general admission is $20 (students $10). Pit admission is $30.

PASS will return to Path Valley Speedway on Saturday, September 18, for a regular program, plus the feature from a show August 13 that was rained out after qualifying events had been run and the lineup set.

Hard Charger For Covington at LOS 360 Nationals

CG Motorsports- Glenpool, Ok. (Sept 8th, 2021) Matt Covington came home with a 4th place finish, earning the Hard Charger award this past Sunday night aboard his Triple X/Shark Racing Engines mount with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour at Lake Ozark Speedway.

Matt started off the night finishing 5th in the heat after starting 7th. The results narrowly squeaked him into the feature in the 16th starting position.

From the drop of the green, Covington worked his A-Rock Materials/Loose Change machine to the front, breaking into the top-10 after only a handful of laps. With a fast race car, Covington navigated the rough track and was able to close in the top-5 by the midway race point. Making it to 3rd at one point, he ultimately had to settle for a side-by-side photo finish for 4th after encountering front-end issues in the closing laps. This effort earned Covington the Hard Charger award for gaining 12 positions during the feature.

“Sunday night was a good run for us and another solid top-5,” stated Covington. “It was good to be able to move forward in the feature and get the hard charger. After the rainout on Saturday, the track was just narrow, rough, and fast in the heats. So I wasn’t able to earn more passing points. And starting that far back in the feature, I knew I didn’t have a lot of time to waste. I think we could have held the podium if it weren’t for the mechanical issues late in the race. But since Knoxville we’ve been back to form and up front, earning a podium at Wakeeny the other night. Matt Howard has been working hard and we are ready for I-80 this weekend, which has been a good track for us if we can get a little luck to go with it.”

Up next for Matt and the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour is the Midwest Brawl at I-80 Speedway this Friday, and Saturday.

Matt and his CG Motorsports team would like to thank all partners who will make this 2021 season possible.

Setters Garners Third Straight Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series Championship

Inside Line Promotions - GREAT FALLS, Mont. (Sept. 9, 2021) - James Setters sacrificed a win for the championship on Aug. 28 during the Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series season finale.

Setters was going for another clean sweep at Electric City Speedway, where he won a heat race and was leading the A Main in the Mike Quigley owned No. 2 sprint car.

"We had really long yellows so we weren't sure we were going to make it on fuel," he said. "We had a red flag with about four laps remaining and my dad said the choice was mine. With all the red and yellows we had during the feature I decided to pull off to make sure we made weight."

The only potential way Setters wasn't going to win his third straight series championship was if he would get disqualified because of being underweight.

"It wasn't that hard of a decision because we're racing for championships," he said. "Of course we want to win every race, but our goal is to win championships."

The team pulled into the work area, added fuel and repaired the wing slider during the red flag. Setters returned to the track and hustled to a runner-up result in the closing laps.

"It's definitely awesome to get another championship for Mike's team and to keep this thing rolling," he said. "Hopefully we can add another one next year."

Setters plans to wrap up the 2021 season in his family car this Friday at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont., and Saturday at Big Sky Speedway in Billings, Mont., with the ASCS Frontier Region.

"I can't wait," he said. "I really like racing in Billings. I'd like to finish the season out with a win, but as long as we can pull the car in with no wrecks that's a win for us."

Aug. 28 - Electric City Speedway in Great Falls, Mont. - Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 2 (2).

Krimes Rides New X-1 Chassis to Second Win of the Season at Lincoln Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (Sept. 9, 2021) - Alan Krimes scored his second victory of the season behind the wheel of his family owned No. 87 last Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway during the backend of a pair of Twin 20 feature events.

Krimes hustled from 24th to 12th during the first feature event at the track after ending with a DNS at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., on Friday.

"Friday was a bit of a bummer as we were in a good position to have a good run before the engine went," he said. "Saturday didn't start out so well, but we got things figured out in the right time and were able to make something out of nothing."

Krimes kicked off the weekend on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway behind the wheel of the Stewart Smith owned No. 27. He started on the pole of a heat race, but disaster struck on Lap 2 when the team suffered engine woes and were forced to the pits.

Not only did the mechanical failure end his night early, but it also closed Krimes' season prematurely at Williams Grove Speedway with the No. 27 team. With the team out of engines and only a handful events left at the famed oval, the team will now start preparing for next season.

"It's not the way we wanted things to end, but we've had a decent season together for our first year," he said. "We felt like we were just starting to really get going again and to have it end that way is just unfortunate. But I'm grateful for the opportunity Stewart provided me this season."

On Saturday Krimes headed to Lincoln Speedway, where he currently sits second in the championship standings. His night started off with a fluid leak during warm-ups and heat race action and he failed to transfer as a result. The team got the problem corrected and despite a spark plug issue in the B Main, Krimes managed to grab the final transfer into the feature.

With the gremlins behind him, Krimes lined up for the feature in the 24 th spot. He climbed to 13th with one lap to go and inherited the 12th position as a result of a competitor wrecking on the final circuit. Not only was the 12th-place finish good enough to earn the Hard Charger Award, it also gave him the pole position for the second 20-lap feature courtesy of a fortunate inversion.

"It was definitely a trying night, but it shows how dedicated my guys are to get us going and going well," he said. "It was a tricky track, but to get to 12th means we had a great car and we were able to snag the pole for Feature No. 2, which made things a lot easier."

With much needed clean air in front of him, Krimes led all 20 laps to pick up the victory. The win was worth $3,000 and was his first of the season driving a new X-1 Race Car chassis. Krimes recently made the change to X-1 looking to spark his season. With only a handful of events under the X-1 banner, Krimes noted that he is thrilled with the progress he's made.

"You never know when you switch chassis manufactures how much it's going to change your setup and the way you do things," he said. "We've only got three races on the car, but it's shown speed every time we've been out and it's nice to get a win this early. It's definitely a relief knowing Ryan Linder gives us a great chassis to work with. I'm looking forward to working more with him and winning more races together."

Krimes will take this weekend off from racing, but will return to action on Sept. 18 at the Dirt Classic VIII presented by Shmuck Lumber Company. The race pays $20,000 to win and is sanctioned by the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions.

"It's nice to have some momentum heading into the end of the year and with so many guys coming into town we're going to need to lay down a good lap in time trials to have any shot," he said. "However, if we do our part and check that box early in the night I don't see any reason we can't be in contention for a win. We've got a fast race car right now and that's all you can ask for this late in the year."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept 3 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 5; Heat race: DNF (1); Feature: DNS (-).

Sept 4 - Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. - Heat race: 9 (8); B Main: 6 (7); Feature #1: 12 (24): Feature #2: 1 (1).

Driever Pockets Three Top-Six Runs With ASCS Frontier Region

Inside Line Promotions - PRICE, Utah (Sept. 9, 2021) - Tyler Driever captured a trio of top-six results last weekend during ASCS Frontier Region competition in Wyoming and Utah.

The solid weekend keeps Driever in second place in the championship standings entering the final two races of the season.

"It wasn't our best weekend, but we salvaged some decent results despite some really bad luck," he said.

It began last Friday at Sweetwater Speedway in Rock Springs, Wyo., where a heat race win earned Driever a spot into the feature redraw. Unfortunately, he pulled the highest number - eight - to line up on the outside of the fourth row in the A Main.

"It was a pretty average night and nothing really crazy happened," he said. "The luck of the draw gave us the No. 8 pill and the track took rubber so that was unfortunate, but we were able to drive up to third."

The third-place outing was Driever's ninth top five of the season.

Action shifted to Desert Thunder Raceway on Sunday for the first of back-to-back nights at the dirt oval.

"That was our first time racing at that track," he said. "It went really, really slick. We were running second from fourth in our heat race and the car slipped out of gear on the last lap so I didn't finish. Then I went from 14th to sixth in the main event.

"It was going pretty smooth and we were picking off cars pretty fast. That track was pretty one line and you really had to wait for someone to get underneath them. It took a lot of patience and going for it when you had a gap."

The performance earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

The holiday weekend concluded on Monday at Desert Thunder Raceway, where Driever advanced from fifth to third place in a heat race. He lined up on the inside of the third row in the A Main.

"We started off pretty well," he said. "The track was very slick. At the start of the main event I went from fifth to second on the first corner of the first lap. Later on I caught a lapped car. If I didn't keep the car aero-ed out it'd get super tight. I caught that lapped car and couldn't get around him. Drivers running third and fourth caught me and freight trained me. I pretty much ran fourth after that as the track took rubber. Then on the last lap coming to the checkered flag we blew a right rear tire so that put us as the last car on the lead lap and we finished sixth."

The ASCS Frontier Region season concludes this Friday at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont., and Saturday at Big Sky Speedway in Billings, Mont.

Kaleb Johnson Scores Runner-Up Result to Highlight Solid Power Series Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 9, 2021) - A runner-up result on Saturday highlighted a solid three nights of racing for Kaleb Johnson during the C & B Operations Power Series Nationals at Jackson Motorplex and Huset's Speedway.

"Our weekend started out really well, but it didn't end so great," he said. "But overall, I think it was pretty solid."

Johnson was fast all evening at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., last Saturday. That night became the event's opening round after Friday's scheduled opener fell to rain.

"We had a really good night at Jackson," he said. "We qualified third in our group, which put us starting fourth in the heat race invert. I figured I would need to win the heat race to make the redraw. The car worked really well and we were able to make up some ground and win the heat.

"We drew the fourth starting spot for the A Main. Justin Henderson was on the front row and I knew he'd be tough to beat. I rode around in third for a few laps before I was able to get by Scott Bogucki for second. I could see Justin up ahead, but he navigated through traffic really well.

"We had a late-race restart. I decided not to try the top since I was afraid I'd spin my tires and lose a spot. So I ran the same line and finished second, which I think we were all pretty proud of, especially with the quality of cars in the race."

Johnson and the rest of the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series drivers moved on to Huset's Speedway - a track where he has far less experience than Jackson Motorplex - for competition the following two nights.

"The car wasn't comfortable in qualifying on Sunday at Huset's, but it worked out well because the invert put us on the pole for the heat race, where the top two qualified for the redraw," he said. "We were able to get the lead at the start and maintain it to the finish and then drew the sixth starting spot in the feature.

"I stayed too long on the bottom in the feature and lost a couple of spots. A couple of cars dropped out and we were able to finish sixth, which wasn't too bad since we haven't raced there a lot and again considering the quality of the cars."

Johnson entered the final night ranked fifth in points, with one more heat race providing additional points to set the starting lineup for the event's $10,000-to-win finale.

"We started fifth and finished there in our heat race," he said. "The track was pretty wet for the heats and I don't think there was much passing in any of them. Our points put us in the seventh starting spot for the A Main.

"Unfortunately, we were in the wrong spot at the wrong time when the A Main started. A couple of cars in front of me someone got sideways going into the first turn and I had nowhere to go. I hit one of them and got spun around, then got clobbered by about four or five more. We bent the front axle and nose wing. Fortunately, we were able to make the repairs with the help of about eight or 10 guys. That was pretty cool.

"We had to restart at the back and I rode around there for a few laps. The car was actually really good so I began driving hard. We were able to stay on the lead lap and move forward, eventually finishing 12th, which wasn't too bad after restarting in the back."

Johnson will try to make the most of late-season special events this weekend when he plans to race at two tracks approximately six and a half hours apart on consecutive nights.

"We're planning to race at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., on Friday," he said. "It's a good-paying race - $1,000-to-start - and we'll be looking for some redemption after our two previous races there this year, which were disappointing.

"Then we're hauling to Cedar Lake Speedway (in New Richmond, Wis.) for the Jerry Richert Memorial race. Cedar Lake is a track where we've run well in the past, so we're looking forward to going back there."

SawBlade.com Sponsored Bogucki Produces Three Top 10s During Power Series Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 9, 2021) - Scott Bogucki improved his feature result during each night of the C & B Operations Power Series Nationals.

The SawBlade.com sponsored driver recorded a top-10 run out of more than 45 drivers last Saturday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., as well as Sunday and Monday at Huset's Speedway.

"There were a lot of a great drivers there so it was good to be as competitive as we were," he said.

Bogucki began the action with the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series last Saturday at Jackson Motorplex, where he qualified second quickest in his group and advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race. He lined up on the inside of the second row in the main event, but battled a tight race car and faded to eighth.

"We weren't very good at Jackson because we got it way too tight," he said. "I was pretty frustrated with that night."

Bogucki took a step forward on Sunday at Huset's Speedway, where he timed in third quickest in his group. A fourth-place result in a heat race locked him into the 16th starting position in the main event.

"At Huset's we were really good to be honest," he said. "The first night we were buried in the feature and ran almost to sixth.

"The second night we should have ran second. We got racing (Justin) Henderson pretty good. I needed more gear to be honest. I slipped off the bottom one time on a restart when I was third and that cost me."

Bogucki charged from 16th to seventh in the feature on Sunday before he capped the weekend with a fifth-place showing on Monday.

Next up is a pair of Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour races this Friday and Saturday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., for the Bobby Parker Memorial and the Casey's Midwest Fall Brawl.

"I think I ran fourth there last year with the ASCS National Tour," Bogucki said. "We were really, really good racing with Sam (Hafertepe Jr.) and Roger (Crockett) so I'm looking forward to returning there this weekend."

Dover Records Trio of Top Fives During Power Series Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 9, 2021) - Jack Dover earned a pair of podium finishes and three top fives during a trio of C & B Operations Power Series Nationals races last weekend.

"There were 45 to 50 other drivers there and throughout the three nights we ended up second in points overall," he said. "We were going there to win and didn't come away with one of those, but it was still a great weekend."

The Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series spectacle started last Saturday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., where Dover qualified seventh quickest in his group. A runner-up result in a heat race locked him into the 11th starting position in the main event.

"We had a great first start of the heat race and would have probably got out in clean air and won, but the guy on the pole spun and that moved Clint Garner up," he said. "When you give a guy like Clint Garner the pole he's not going to mess up. He was able to get in front of us and the track was too good at that point to do anything.

"Come feature-time I didn't do anything special or different; I just drove the wheels off of it. Everybody kept trying to hit the bottom in turns three and four, which was a thin line to hit. I was able to carry so much speed into turn three. It was a little better line than the bottom because we had so much momentum and speed."

Dover methodically worked his way to a third-place result.

Racing shifted to Huset's Speedway for the following two nights. Dover timed in fifth quickest in his group before a heat race victory gave him the outside front row starting position in the A Main.

"We had a good start to the night," he said. "In the feature we fell back to third and with four laps to go someone right in front of us got crossed up in turn four. I had a lot of speed. I had to check up a lot and that unloaded my car, which put us into the frontstretch wall and packed my right front wheel full of mud. I had a really good run on him and was fixing to do a big slide job in turns one and two before that happened. We were lucky to salvage a fifth-place result after that."

Dover wrapped up the weekend on Monday by advancing from sixth to fourth place in a heat race to garner the second starting spot for the second straight night.

"We didn't get the car to come off the corner like we wanted it to," he said. "I think it was a fueling issue on my part. I struggled with it on Sunday and tried something different on Monday. I think I went the wrong way. I'm happy to finish third considering the car wasn't top notch."

Dover's third-place effort was his 23rd top five of the season.

Dover returns to action this Friday and Saturday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., during the Bobby Parker Memorial and the Casey's Midwest Fall Brawl with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. He has won three races at the track this year.

Starks Rallies for Top-10 Results With World of Outlaws at Skagit Speedway and Grays Harbor Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - ELMA, Wash. (Sept. 9, 2021) - Trey Starks captured back-to-back top-10 finishes with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series in his home state of Washington last weekend.

Starks competed with the series four straight nights during the holiday weekend that ended with a pair of ninth-place showings and the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

"I feel like for not getting to run a 410 all year and at these tracks in at least a couple of years we were really happy with our results," he said. "We were consistent each night. We had some issues at Grays Harbor on Monday, but I felt like we rebounded fairly well. It was nice to be competitive with the 410 after not being on the road and not running very many races all year."

Starks had similar outings at Skagit Speedway in Alger last Friday and Saturday as both nights ended with an 11th-place result in the A Main. He took a step forward on Sunday during the Sage Fruit Skagit Nationals finale by placing ninth.

"We were improving with the car every night," he said. "There were changes that we made to try to get what I was looking for feeling-wise with the 410 in the car. We started to find it the last couple of nights. The slight gains we made come feature-time showed up. We were right there the whole time all weekend. In the feature we were just a little off late in the race, but we made gains. I'd love to have four more nights because we were improving each night. That definitely gives you some confidence."

Monday got off to a rough start at Grays Harbor Raceway, where a broken rear end in hot laps kept Starks off the track until his heat race.

"We didn't get much track time," he said. "We started in the back of the heat race and that was pretty much our first laps on the track. We were okay. We were in a little bit of a scramble trying to get everything out. We weren't able to make the changes we needed to keep up with the track, but we've run at Grays Harbor a couple of times this year and have been solid so we had an idea of where to be with the car."

Starks moved forward one spot in a heat race to finish sixth before he rallied from 18th to ninth in the main event.

"I kept my head down and moved around enough to find our way by guys," he said. "We had a caution or two fall our way. I tried to find a different spot on the track than the guys in front of us were running. All in all, it was a good night. Following our issues in the beginning we ended up salvaging a good run."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 3 - Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. - Qualifying: 10; Heat race: 4 (4); Feature: 11 (9).

Sept. 4 - Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. - Qualifying: 11; Heat race: 4 (4); Feature: 11 (11).

Mechanical setback slows Walter’sPlymouth Fair Night effort, IRA twin bill on tap

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September8, 2021 – After five weeks away from competition, Josh Walter and the Torque Racing 410 Sprint Car team’s return to action at the team’s home track – The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. ended prematurely due to a mechanical malady, during the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series’ annual appearance at the Sheboygan County Fair on Saturday, Sept. 4.

With a large Fair Night crowd packing the grandstand and a healthy 31-car IRA field on hand, Walter opened the event on a strong note by ripping off the 11th-fastest time in qualifying with a lap of 12.172 seconds around the third-mile clay oval.

After lining up on the outside front row of the third 10-lap IRA heat race, a pair of false starts pushed Walter and polesitter Russel Borland back a row and relegated the Plymouth driver to the fourth starting spot on the drop of the green flag.

Walter held down the fourth spot in the opening laps of the race along the cushion before the first of consecutive caution flags appeared on lap three for a spin involving Hunter Custer.

On the ensuing restart, Brayton Lynch slowed to bring out another caution. During the caution period, Walter retired to the pit area with an apparent engine-related mechanical issue.

“We broke a rocker arm in the heat race and pulled off during the second caution,” Walter said. “That ended our night as we went about assessing the damage and our plan for how to address the issue. We have ordered the parts and should be ready to go for this weekend at Outagamie and Cedar Lake.”

The Torque Racing team was in attendance for the fifth annual Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association Harry Neitzel Tribute race on Friday, Sept. 3 at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. However, heavy rain showers hit the track late in the afternoon, which forced the event to be cancelled.

Walter and the Torque Racing team are set to compete in a Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association doubleheader weekend starting this Friday, Sept. 10 at Outagamie Speedway Powered by EWSC Racing in Seymour, Wis.

The following night, the team will head to Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis. for the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association’s prestigious $5,000-to-win Jerry Richert Memorial event on Saturday, Sept. 11.

“APPLE FESTIVAL NATIONALS” THIS WEEKEND AT SHARON; FULL SHOW FOR RUSH SPRINTS & DWARFS FRIDAY WITH "410" SPRINTS SATURDAY; RUSH LM TOUR, PENN-OHIO STOCKS, RUSH MOD TOUR & ECONO MODS SPLIT OVER BOTH NIGHTS


By Mike Leone

September 8, 2021


(Hartford, OH)…After a weekend off, Sharon Speedway will return to racing this Friday and Saturday night (September 10-11) with the running of the annual “Apple Festival Nationals”. Seven different divisions will compete at some point during the weekend. The Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars and Sportsman Dwarf Cars presented by Joe's Radiator Service, Sara Cipriano at Waterstone Mortgage, and R Tumbleweed Transportation will run a complete show on Friday night, while the "410" Sprint Cars will run a complete show on Saturday night. The RUSH Late Model Tour presented by Zarin Truck & Auto and an anonymous donor in recognition of Autism Awareness along with the Whelen Econo Mods presented by BACA, Penn-Ohio Pro Stocks, and the RUSH Sportsman Modified Tour and will have their shows split over the two nights with their last chance B mains and features on Saturday night. Race time is 7 p.m. both nights.

For the fifth straight year, the "410" Sprint Cars will be part of the "Apple Festival Nationals" racing for $3,000 to-win, $250 to-start. The hot lap/group qualifying format will be utilized. Sharon has hosted 10 "410" Sprint Car events this season with nine different winners as only Carl Bowser has been able to repeat! Not only has there been nine different winners, but six of those racers have captured their first career Sharon wins including Bowser. Other winners this year include Justin Peck, George Hobaugh, Dave Blaney (who is planning on racing Saturday night), Ryan Smith, Danny Dietrich, Dale Blaney, Spencer Bayston, Adam Kekich.

It had been nearly five years since the Flynn's Tire/Born2Run Lubricants RUSH Late Model Touring Series had raced at Sharon prior to the "Bill Forney Memorial" on August 28. At that show, Chub Frank emerged victorious over the 33-car field with a last lap pass of Joe Martin for the $3,199 victory in a race that featured two and three-wide racing throughout the field. Virginia's Kyle Hardy, who finished third, leads the Tour back to Sharon this weekend for the $4,000 to-win, $300 to-start "Cider Jug 40" presented by Zarin Truck & Auto and an anonymous donor in recognition of Autism Awareness. Hardy has six wins this season and currently leads Martin in the $12,000 to-win points with defending and three-time champion Jeremy Wonderling in third.

The Whelen Econo Mods will be competing in their richest event in the 12-year history of the division thanks to BACA (Bikers Against Child Abuse) as Saturday's feature will pay $2,500 to-win! Young's Family Trucking will provide $100 and a 4' trophy to the dash winner on Friday night, which will set the beginning of Saturday's feature lineup. At the August 7 "Ron Shargo Memorial", an all-time Econo Mod record 39 cars competed for the $2,000 payday, which topped the previous high of 38. Will Thomas III was the victor that night for one of his four wins in six starts. Jeremy Double won two features including the most recent race on August 21 in route to the track championship. The only other feature winner in 2021 was Dennis Lunger, Jr., who won on opening night and is planning on returning this weekend.

A large field of Penn-Ohio Pro Stocks annually take part in the "Apple Festival Nationals" and that's expected once again this weekend with $2,000 to-win, $150 to-start posted. Chris Schneider has already won the two biggest events of the season; the $10,000 "Steel Valley Pro Stock Nationals" and the $1,000 special on August 14. Curt J. Bish started off the season strong winning two events out of the box, but hasn't won since May 15 even though he captured his second straight Gibson Insurance Agency track championship. The only other repeat winner was 2018 champion Chris McGuire. Also victorious this season was Coleton Longwell for his first career Sharon win.

Though the HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modified track points are finalized with Chas Wolbert victorious, a lot of points will be on the line for the eighth year division that draws a full field of racers plus each and every Saturday night. The RUSH Mods will be competing in a Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Touring Series event with also Hovis Weekly Series and Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series points up for grabs. Currently Jacob Wolfe leads the Tour, Wolbert the Weekly, and Brandon Ritchey in the R7R. This season, Wolbert won four races, three to Garrett Krummert, while Wolfe and Clayton Deems won their first career features.

The Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars will compete in a full show on Friday night for $600 to-win part of the Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Championship that awards $5,000 to the champion. After veteran Rod George won the opener, it's been a season of streaks as Nolan Groves won two straight followed by two for Chad Ruhlman, and most recently a pair for seven-time "410" Sprint track champion Jarod Larson. Ruhlman, who is a two-time $5,000 RUSH Weekly Series Champion, is again leading the points, but only by four over Gale Ruth, Jr. Amazingly, Ruth, who has seven wins this season on the RUSH circuit and 13 in his career, has still never won at Sharon and hopes to change that Friday night.

The Sportsman Dwarf Cars have become an annual fixture on the Friday night "Apple Festival Nationals" program for several years now. This year, the Dwarfs made two other appearances with Angie Grzelak and Luke Mulichak victorious. Friday's $500 to-win show is again presented by Joe's Radiator Service, Sara Cipriano at Waterstone Mortgage, and R Tumbleweed Transportation. The Dwarf Cars have appeared 24 times over the years at Sharon with 13 different winners as Josh Walker is the all-time winner with seven.

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.

Goldesberry Earns a Pair of Top 5’s

Springfield, IL (September 8, 2021)- Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team earned two 4th place finishes this past weekend with the IRA. The IRA was scheduled for three races but Friday night at the Dodge County Fairgrounds was won by Mother Nature.

Saturday night the action was in Plymouth, WI during the Sheboygan County Fair. With 31 cars checked in, Goldesberry was third quick on the night. His qualifying effort would line up the Rockstar Energy Drink #65 outside the second row. Goldesberry would go on to finish second and advance to the dashes. Drawing the pole position of the second dash, the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim would finish second. The dash finish would line Goldesberry up outside second row in the feature. Goldesberry would get a good start and unfortunately had the inboard brake caliper break off. With no brakes, Goldesberry would drive his Rockstar Energy Drink the best he could and have to control the car with the throttle only. He was able to finish fourth.

“We had a good car at Plymouth. I feel if we hadn’t lost brakes, we could have challenged the leaders and had an opportunity to win. It was still a solid finish for our team.” said Goldesberry. “It was great to see a packed crowd and get Rockstar in front of everybody.”

The action moved north Sunday to 141 Speedway in Francis Creek, WI. There were 28 cars checked in for the evening and Goldesberry was able to qualify fourth quick. This would line up the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim inside second row of the first heat. He would go on to finish third and qualify for the dashes for the second night in a row. Again, he was able to get a good draw and pulled outside the first row of the second dash. He would finish second and line up the feature event fourth. Goldesberry would battle for second and third most of the race and ended up finishing fourth at the end of the 30 lapper.

“We had another good night at 141 on Sunday. We needed to be tighter to get off of turn two better. Overall, we had another good weekend and we are looking forward to two more this weekend.” said Goldesberry. “We are looking forward to getting back to Cedar Lake.”

This weekend the Rockstar Energy Drink team will compete in a pair of races with the IRA. Friday night the action will be at Outagamie Speedway in Seymour, WI. Saturday night the action moves west to Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, WI for the Jerry Richert Memorial.

The $3,000-to-win United Rebel Sprint Series event is set to take place on September 23-25. Pre-entry for the event is just $100 if submitted by September 16 then $150 after that date. Entry forms are available at https://i70motorsportspark.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/305-Sprint-Car-Nationals-2021-Entry-Form-2.pdf.

Colorado’s Jake Bubak has topped the last two editions of the Lubbock Wrecker Service 305 Sprint Car Nationals, making a late move in last August’s event to take the win ahead of Jason Martin and Zach Blurton after sweeping through the 2019 edition to pocket more than $6,000 including preliminary night winnings and lap money over the three-day weekend.

Bubak’s pair of wins came after Kevin Ramey topped the inaugural version of the event in 2017 and then Fairview, Oklahoma’s Jake Martens pocketed $4,040 including lap money by fending off a last-lap slider from Bubak and then beating Chad Koch to the stripe in the 2018 finale.

The format is as follows:

All cars run each night.

Thursday and Friday pill draw determines heat race groups. Group qualifying determines heat race lineups with invert of four. Four or five transfer from each heat based upon car count with winner and fastest transfer making the feature redraw. If heat race winner is also the fastest qualifier from that heat, only the winner of that heat goes to the redraw.

Behind redraw cars, top two qualifiers to transfer earn next two positions with balance of “A” Main lineup set by heat race finish and then qualifying time (i.e., 2nd place finishers not in redraw lined up by qualifying time, 3rd place finishers not in redraw lined by qualifying time, 4th place finishers not in redraw lined by qualifying time).

11th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial on horizon after Lucas Oil Speedway is quiet this week

WHEATLAND, MO. (Sept. 7, 2021) - Lucas Oil Speedway takes a scheduled weekend off before one of the biggest events of the season and one of sprint-car racing’s majors - the 11th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial - rolls into town for a big three-day extravaganza.

The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series Presented by MAVTV Motorsports Network and the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints return Sept. 16-18 for an event that’s grown each year since its start in 2011.

The event honors the legacy of Jesse Hockett, from Warsaw, Missouri, who was a star in both the winged and non-wing sprint divisions when he lost his life in a shop accident in 2010. His cousin and crew chief, Daniel McMillin, was killed in an automobile accident in 2006.

“This event has grown so much over the years and is annually one of the highlights of our season,” Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said. “We look forward to the biggest Hockett/McMillin Memorial yet, with great racing while paying tribute to Jesse and Daniel and honoring their memories.”

This year there will be no split qualifying nights with all drivers in both the ASCS winged and POWRi wingless divisions competing both Thursday and Friday as combined points from heat races, qualifiers, B-mains and A-mains will help set the lineup for Saturday night’s ASCS $10,000-to-win main event and $3,077-to-win WAR feature.

On year ago, Sam Hafertepe Jr. captured his third Hockett-McMillin ASCS victory while Garrett Aitken earned the POWRi WAR final-night feature win.

Early registration will end at midnight tonight (Sept. 8) for the POWRi WAR competitors. Registration is available online at www.powri.com under the Hockett/McMillin Registration link or at https://www.myracepass.com/series/1572/registrations/4600

BALOG BATTLES, LOOKS FOR MOMENTUM AT THE

54th ANNUAL TUSCARORA 50 AT PORT ROYAL SPEEDWAY

Hartland, Wisconsin (September 8th, 2021) – After struggling at Grandview Speedway (8/26/21) and Lincoln Speedway (8/28/21), Bill Balog and the B Squared Motorsports team worked hard to build a spare car in time to close out the month of August at BAPS Motor Speedway (8/29/21). The car, repaired after a 2018 crash at Knoxville by Midland Performance, rewarded the team's hard work with a heat race win and a top 10 All Star Circuit of Champions feature event finish for the Anderson’s Maple Syrup #17B.

“I gotta thank Jason Sosnoski, Matt McKay and Matt Miller for busting their butts to get this thing ready to race. We had to run the fuel system, gauges and get the motor in it, it was a big effort.” said the North Pole Nightmare, driver of the CK Contractors LLC, Buesser Concrete, Wisecup Siding, Howard Law, Wayne Corini, CPA, Lein Acres sprint car.

Despite the team's efforts, the momentum did not continue into the doubleheader weekend at Attica Speedway September 3rd and 4th in the Buckeye State. Battling a strong FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions field, chasing demons with their hauler, and relying on their back up car the team struggled both nights at Attica Speedway, capturing a weekend’s best 18th place finish in the September 3rd feature event.

“Racing will beat you up, we’re getting beat up right now” said Balog. “After Friday we needed to make some changes, we were looking for a spark on Saturday and the car didn’t respond to the changes we made. We’re looking forward to the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal this weekend” said the 10x IRA Sprint Car Champ.

Paul Pokorski tallies top-12 showing
In PDTR 360 Sprint Car return

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 7, 2021 – After over two months away from the driver’s seat, 29-year veteran Paul Pokorski returned to the cockpit of the No. 4 Pokorski Motorsports 360 Sprint Car during the annual Sheboygan County Fair race at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

With 30 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars on hand and a large crowd of spectators in attendance for the Fair Night event, Pokorski started third in the third 10-lap 360 Sprint Car heat race.

After settling into the third spot at the start, the 2014 Midwest Sprint Car Association Masters Series champion duck low to move past Chris Larson in turn one on lap three.

Pokorski was reeling in the first-place car of Kurt Davis when the caution flag flew for a spin involving Chris Clayton and Justin Miller in turn two on lap 5.

On the restart, Lance Fassbender worked around Pokorski to take over second and move the West Bend driver back to third in the running order, which is where he finished the race.

Pokorski then started 11th in the 25-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car A main and utilized the low groove in the early stages of the race to hold down the 11th spot. After the lone caution flag appeared on lap 7 for debris, Pokorski fell back to 13th on the restart.

Starting on lap 14, the low-riding Pokorski engaging in a heated duel with the cushion-pounding machine of Tyler Brabant. Pokorski outbattled Brabant in the closing stages of the race to secure the 12th spot at the conclusion of the race, which was won by Travis Arenz.

“The car was good but not great,” Pokorski said. “The driver was a little rusty. I felt really odd actually. I would have really liked to get out and run on the top, but it seems like the bottom was the way to go most of the night. We're fighting a little gremlin that makes it difficult to drive at times. We can't quite figure it out. Alex was struggling with the same thing from time to time.

“I will be in the car again next Saturday and will change some things and see if we can't figure out our issue,” he said. “I was happy to get through the night with no major issues.”

The Pokorski Motorsports team is set to return to action with Paul Pokorski in the driver’s seat at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 11.

Spectator gates open at 4:30 p.m. with hot laps at 5:30 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m.

Williamson Hustles to Podium Performances at Pair of Missouri Ovals

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Sept. 7, 2021) - Garet Williamson produced one of his most successful weekends of the season as he guided two different race teams to podium result.

Williamson made the most of his first-ever opportunity to pilot Scott Bonar's No. 50 sprint car last Friday at Randolph County Raceway in Moberly, Mo. Williamson advanced from second to win a heat race, from fourth to third place in the dash and from fourth to second in the Sprint Invaders A Main.

"It was pretty cool and was neat to have that happen for the first time," he said. "We relaxed and had a fun night. Coming to the last lap I got within five car lengths of the leader, but it was too little too late. We got to traffic too late in the race."

The strong weekend continued on Sunday at Lake Ozark Speedway, where Williamson returned to the Bryant Paver Motorsports No. 24 for a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour race.

"We've been fast there all year, but hadn't had the results to show for it," he said. "We drew on the front row for our heat race, but I didn't win it so that hurt us. We ended up starting ninth."

Williamson's runner-up result in a heat race started him on the inside of the fifth row in the main event.

"We fell back to 15th or 16th," he said. "I was struggling to get by cars. We had a red and I was able to clear my mind. I started running a lot higher and above the ruts. It was really rolling for us pretty good."

Williamson's rally into a third-place result was his seventh podium run of the season.

"It was really nice to have a consistent run both nights and be on the podium each time," he said.

Williamson will take this weekend off before resuming competition Sept. 16-18 at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., during the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 3 - Randolph County Raceway in Moberly, Mo. - Heat race: 1 (2); Dash: 3 (4); Feature: 2 (4).

Sept. 5 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Heat race: 2 (1); Feature: 3 (9).

SEASON STATS -

43 races, 1 win, 9 top fives, 14 top 10s, 20 top 15s, 24 top 20s

UP NEXT -

Dominic Scelzi Wins Louie Vermeil Classic Opener at Silver Dollar Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - CHICO, Calif. (Sept. 7, 2021) - Momentum is clearly on Dominic Scelzi's side as he closes in on his first career King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series championship.

Scelzi earned another win and two more podiums last weekend during the Louie Vermeil Classic doubleheader at Silver Dollar Speedway to increase his lead in the championship standings thanks to eight podiums in a row with the series.

"We're running really well and focusing on winning races the rest of this season," he said. "I think that's paying off. We were really good in Chico last weekend."

Scelzi qualified 12th quickest last Saturday before he won a heat race after lining up on the outside of the front row. He continued to take advantage of track position the remainder of the night, winning the dash from second and the main event from the pole.

"The first night we didn't qualify great, but we won the heat race and that lined us up on the outside of the front row of the dash," he said. "We were able to win the dash to start on the pole for the feature. The track was right around the bottom. We were able to get the lead on the start and ride off into the sunset."

Scelzi led the distance to score his fifth series victory of the season and 18th overall win in 2021.

Sunday's weekend finale began with Scelzi timing in ninth quickest overall. He again won a heat race, but this time narrowly missed out on making the dash. That started him on the inside of the fourth row for the main event.

"To be honest I felt really good," he said. "The track was slick and wide. We got to fourth pretty quick and then got into third. We had passed both (Justin) Sanders and (Kyle) Hirst for second, but a yellow negated a pass on Sanders. We got racing with Kyle and he got back by us. I felt we were every bit as good as first and second, but we ended up settling for third."

Scelzi's third-place result was his 39th top five of the season.

The team plans to race four times at Silver Dollar Speedway this week. It begins on Wednesday with 360ci sprint car competition prior to World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series action on Friday and Saturday during the Gold Cup Race of Champions. Scelzi will also be in action in his 360 sprint car on Saturday.

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Post Four Top Fives in Washington

Inside Line Promotions - ELMA, Wash. (Sept. 7, 2021) - David Gravel scored four top-five finishes during four straight nights of racing in Washington throughout Labor Day Weekend.

The solid weekend keeps the Big Game Motorsports driver ranked second in the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series championship standings with only 15 races remaining this season.

"It was a solid weekend," Gravel said. "If you take away a couple of things it could have been an awesome weekend. I felt like we qualified good all weekend except for one night and that took us out of the running for the $25,000 to win. Overall, we had two solid nights and the other two we finished third and fifth so when you can get top fives on nights that aren't your best that's a positive."

Gravel kicked off a trio of nights at Skagit Speedway in Alger last Friday when he qualified second quickest. He won a heat race, placed fourth in the dash and gained a spot in the feature to finish third.

He nearly duplicated his success the ensuing night, timing in third quickest before winning a heat race and the dash. Gravel led the first 21 laps of the 30-lap feature before traffic cost him a pair of positions.

The Sage Fruit Skagit Nationals wrapped up on Sunday with Gravel qualifying 11th quickest. He picked up a position to place third in a heat race before advancing from eighth to fifth place in the A Main.

The action shifted to Grays Harbor Raceway on Monday. Gravel set a new track record during qualifying before he won a heat race. A rally from sixth to third place in the dash started him on the inside of the second row for the A Main.

"Last night we got it too tight," he said. "We were really good in the dash. It doesn't take much to throw your car balance off a little bit.

"It's hard to win races. There are seven or eight guys who are really, really good. On these short tracks with tight corners, when you start in the mix it's hard to move forward. You have to be really good to be able to move forward. Last night we didn't have that. The other nights we kind of maintained. When we went eighth to fifth that was our best car of the weekend. The track was really fast that night and it went green to checkered."

Next up is the Gold Cup Race of Champions this Friday and Saturday at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif.

"Gold Cup is a cool race," Gravel said. "Chico is a tough race track. It's always a challenge racing there. We have to try to qualify good to put ourselves in a good position because if you start in the back anything can happen."

Hobaugh highlights Labor Day weekend with podium at Tri-City; Port’s Tuscarora 50 looms

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

CHICORA, Pa. (September 7, 2021) – Chicora, Pennsylvania’s George Hobaugh was one position away from securing his second sprint car victory of the 2021 season on Saturday night at Tri-City Raceway Park in Franklin, Pennsylvania, but time ran short, forcing the Western Pennsylvania open wheeler to cap Tri-City’s Labor Day Weekend opener with a runner-up finish after starting eighth on the $3,000-to-win grid.

For Hobaugh, the podium result equaled his top performance of the holiday weekend, opening his three-race schedule with top-ten run at Lernerville Speedway one night prior, all before finishing 13th in Tri-City’s $4,000-to-win Labor Day finale on Sunday.

Hobaugh’s top-ten outcome at Lernerville resulted from a ninth-place score; a third consecutive top-ten at the Sarver oval.

“I think we could have had something for AJ (Flick) at Tri-City on Saturday…we just ran outta time,” Hobaugh said, driver of the Hobaugh Motorsports, Krill Recycling, Laskowski Plumbing, Ridgeview Security, Hobaugh’s Auto Parts, Colliers Custom Kitchen and Bath, No. 40 sprint car. “It’s been a pretty solid season for our team. The plan was to race at Sharon on Saturday, but we’ve decided to head east and enter the Tuscarora 50. It’s going to be a long, tough weekend, but we know our potential at Port Royal. It all begins with qualifying.”

George Hobaugh and Hobaugh Motorsports will continue their 2021 campaign with the heavily sought-after Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania. The three-day blockbuster, set to headline action on Thursday through Saturday, September 9-11, will feature three complete All Star Circuit of Champions programs kicking-off with an $8,000-to-win preliminary on Thursday. Competition will continue with another preliminary contest on Friday awarding $10,000-to-win, all of which capped with the 54th running of the 50-lap Tuscarora 50 on Saturday. Commemorating its 54th edition, the 2021 Tuscarora 50 will award a $54,000 payday.

Certainly no stranger to Port’s “Speed Palace,” Hobaugh has one top-five at the Port Royal halfmile this season, finishing fourth early in the year.

Whittall aims big in 54th Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

VINCENTOWN, N.J. (September 7, 2021) – Vincentown, New Jersey’s Justin Whittall was well on his way to a potential top-ten outcome on Monday afternoon at Port Royal Speedway, but an incident at the midpoint of the 25-lap Labor Day Classic forced Whittall to retire early.

The recent Williams Grove Speedway winner was battling within the top-ten at the time of the incident; another’s misfortune with nowhere to go.

Other Labor Day weekend results for Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports include a 14th-place run in Williams Grove Speedway’s Todd Shaffer Tribute on Friday, September 3, followed by a 13th-place finish in Port Royal Speedway’s fair opener on Saturday, September 4.

“It kinda sucks, but that’s the way it goes sometimes,” Justin Whittall said of Monday’s Labor Day Classic. “We were in a position to find the top-ten, but that doesn’t mean we can’t do that again this weekend. The Tuscarora 50 is a race we have circled on our calendar each and every year. We know what we are going to be up against…it all begins with time trials. We need to time well and put ourselves in a solid position early. You can’t get stuck in a hole against a field like that. You’ll never get back out. We have the potential to do big things and that’s what we’re aiming to do.”

Justin Whittall will continue the month of September with the heavily sought-after Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway. The three-day blockbuster, set to headline action on Thursday through Saturday, September 9-11, will feature three complete All Star Circuit of Champions programs kicking-off with an $8,000-to-win preliminary on Thursday. Competition will continue with another preliminary contest on Friday awarding $10,000-to-win, all of which capped with the 54th running of the 50-lap Tuscarora 50 on Saturday. Commemorating its 54th edition, the 2021 Tuscarora 50 will award a $54,000 payday.

Obviously no stranger to Port’s “Speed Palace,” Whittall has one podium finish at the Juniata County Fairgrounds this season, finishing third during an early round of Open Wheel Madness on April 24.

Dietrich victorious in Port Royal’s Labor Day Classic; Tuscarora 50 weekend next

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (September 7, 2021) – For the fifth time this season, and for the first time at Port Royal Speedway, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich parked his Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, No. 48 sprint car in victory lane, earning his feat during Port Royal’s annual Labor Day Classic on Monday afternoon, September 6.

The $6,000 score was accomplished from row four, taking command on lap six over All Star invader Hunter Schuerenberg; Dietrich went on unchallenged.

The victory, his second win in just over a week after beating the All Star Circuit of Champions at BAPS Motor Speedway on Sunday, August 29, gave Dietrich his second podium performance in four days, as the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native finished second in Williams Grove Speedway’s Todd Shaffer Tribute on Friday, September 3.

Dietrich did his best to run down race leader Brent Marks in traffic, but a late-race caution cleared the track of slower cars forcing Dietrich to take a backseat to the “Myerstown Missile.”

“It was a great weekend, no doubt about that. Nothing better than being comfortable and having confidence right before one of the biggest races of the season. We’re ready to try our hand again against the All Stars at the Tuscarora 50,” Dietrich said, who now owns four total Labor Day Classic triumphs. “I can’t say enough about my team, the fans, the support…we have it all right now and I couldn’t be more excited. We’re going to do what we can to get up front this weekend. We have the potential to do big things and that’s our goal.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue the month of September with the heavily sought-after Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway. The three-day blockbuster, set to headline action on Thursday through Saturday, September 9-11, will feature three complete All Star Circuit of Champions programs kicking-off with an $8,000-to-win preliminary on Thursday.

Brock Zearfoss finds top-ten twice in Washington visit; Silver Dollar next

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (September 7, 2021) – It was an action-packed Labor Day weekend for Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing, as the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series trail led the Jonestown, Pennsylvania-native to the Pacific Northwest where the Greatest Show On Dirt entered four events over four days, first participating in the Sage Fruit Skagit Nationals at Skagit Speedway on September 3-5.

Zearfoss, pilot of the Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., Meckley’s Limestone Products, Berkebile Oil Company, Klick Lewis Cars, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, X-1 Race Cars, No. 3Z sprint car, highlighted his three-day visit to Skagit with a top-ten outcome on Saturday, cashing in for an eighth-place finish after starting ninth on the feature grid. In fact, Zearfoss finished no worse than 12th during the three-race showcase, ending the Skagit Nationals with a 12th-place score during the $25,000-to-win finale on Sunday.

One night later at Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Washington, the “Jonestown Jet” was back inside the top-ten, this time rallying from 14th to finish eighth. With all results considered, Zearfoss now owns 20 top-ten finishes during World of Outlaws competition this season, maintaining his place within the top-ten of the World of Outlaws driver standings.

“It was a solid and consistent weekend for our team. We’ve logged a lot of miles over the last few weeks, so hats off to my guys for hanging tough and never giving up,” Zearfoss said, who is on the hunt for World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year honors in 2021. “I’m excited to race in California. We’ve been looking forward to this opportunity for a long time, so we plan to take full advantage of it.”

After a two-year hiatus, the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will finally compete in sunny California, blasting off officially on Friday evening, September 10.

Rico Abreu finds pair of top-tens in Skagit Nationals; Port Royal bound

Dates: Friday through Sunday, September 3rd-5th Event: Sage Fruit Skagit Nationals Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Track: Skagit Speedway (Burlington, Washington) Rico Abreu A-Main Finishes (Start): Friday: 10th (7th) Saturday: 10th (12th) Sunday: 13th (15th)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (September 7, 2021) - Rico Abreu’s trip to the Pacific Northwest may not have resulted in a victory, but the St. Helena, California-native did accomplish a pair of top-ten outcomes, scoring back-to-back tenth-place finishes against the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series in Skagit Speedway’s Skagit Nationals on Friday and Saturday, September 3-4.

Abreu, pilot of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Rowdy Energy/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Self Made/Salty’s BBQ/The Wiser Agency/No. 24 sprint car, joined the Outlaws for all three nights of the Skagit Nationals program, but unfortunately, the recent Hard Knox winner at Knoxville Raceway was unable to continue his top-ten streak during the $25,000-to-win Skagit Nationals finale on Sunday; Abreu finished 13th after starting 15th on the grid.

“It wasn’t the weekend we were looking for, but we love having the chance to race in Washington. It’s a beautiful state with such an amazing fan base. We’re already looking forward to getting back hopefully next year,” Rico Abreu said. “Hats off to my team. We’ve been racking up a lot of miles over the last few weeks. We have a big trip ahead. I’m excited to reunite with my Pennsylvania fans.”

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with a journey across much of the contiguous United States, setting all compasses toward the heart of Pennsylvania Posse Country where one of open wheel’s most historic and sought after events will be contested beginning Thursday evening, September 9 - the 54th edition of Port Royal Speedway’s Tuscarora 50.

The three-day blockbuster, set to headline action on Thursday through Saturday, September 9-11, will feature three complete All Star Circuit of Champions programs kicking-off with an $8,000-to-win preliminary on Thursday. Competition will continue with another preliminary contest on Friday awarding $10,000-to-win, all of which capped with the 54th running of the 50-lap Tuscarora 50 on Saturday. Commemorating its 54th edition, the 2021 Tuscarora 50 will award a $54,000 payday.

2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Fourth | 8346 points (230 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 7, 2021) - Although unable to rack up additional marks in his ever-growing win column, ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz, put together a consistent weekend in his return to the Pacific Northwest, cashing in for four consecutive top-ten appearances and finishing no worse than seventh. Schatz’ stretch through Washington included the three-day Sage Fruit Skagit Nationals on September 3-5, followed by a one night stop at Grays Harbor Raceway on Monday, September 6.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Carquest Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Sage Fruit/Digital Ally/Advance Auto Parts/Rush Truck Centers/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, finished fourth, second, and seventh, respectively, during his three day visit to Skagit Speedway, eventually capping his Labor Day weekend with a fourth-place performance at Grays Harbor.

Nearly accomplishing victory number 303 with the Greatest Show On Dirt, Schatz’ runner-up result during night two of the Sage Fruit Skagit Nationals was the product of patience and perseverance, actually fading to fourth before quickly switching his focus to the bottom of the speedway. The Fargo, North Dakota-native was able to use the bottom groove to sneak through traffic and ultimately reclaim multiple positions before finishing second. Impressive enough, Schatz was second across the board on Saturday night, earning runner-up results during heat race and dash races, as well.

“That was a high-speed chess match,” Schatz said. “The car feels solid right now. My guys are always working hard to improve.”

After a two-year hiatus, the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will finally compete in sunny California, blasting off officially on Friday evening, September 10. The two-week Outlaws swing through the Golden State will begin with the Gold Cup Race of Champions at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, California. Schatz is a former two-time champion of the prestigious west coast program, winning his most recent in 2015.

Tanner Carrick 5th at ‘The Louie’

PETERSEN MEDIA: Enduring a mechanical failure during Saturday’s opening night of the Louie Vermeil Classic, Tanner Carrick and the Carrick Motorsports team had a strong Sunday night that included a fifth-place finish in the feature event.

“Unfortunately, we have had some issues on Saturday night that ended our night in heat race action, but the guys worked hard, and we had a really good Sunday night,” Tanner Carrick said.

Sunday night, Carrick got his night off toa great start as he timed the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83T machine in second fastest in qualifying time trials. Battling some throttle gremlins in his heat race, Carrick would lose a spot and finish fifth, though it would still lock him into the 30-lap Louie Vermeil Classic feature event.

Lining up 10th in the ‘A’, a re-worked Silver Dollar Speedway surface provided a ton of action with passing taking place at both ends of the speedway. From the fifth row, Carrick was able to get his Clark Riolo prepared entry rolling towards the front.

Making some big moves as he battled with the likes of Tim Kaeding, and Shane Golobic, the Lincoln, CA driver would work his way up into the Top-5 when the race came to a close.

“We had a little throttle issue that hurt us in the heat race, but we were still able to transfer which was crucial,” Carrick said. “I am feeling really good in our 410ci as of late, and am looking forward to the Gold Cup.”

Tanner Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, Interstate Oil, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Emerald, Timberworks Construction, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 49, Wins: 6, Top 5’s: 23, Top 10’s: 30

ON TAP: Carrick is set to return to action this Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night in Chico, CA during the 67th Gold Cup Race of Champions.

Willie Croft Second at Vermeil Classic Opener

PETERSEN MEDIA- Resuming action with the King of the West Series over the Labor Day Weekend in Chico, CA for the Louie Vermeil Classic, Willie Croft would flex his muscle during Saturday’s opener as he ended up with a second-place finish, before a part failure on Sunday night ended his night prematurely.

“We had a ton of speed all weekend and that felt really good,” Willie Croft said. “After making a ton of mistakes in Stockton, I felt like I really limited those in Chico, but still have work to do on my end, but good to get on the podium and build up some momentum.”

Saturday night, Croft came out really strong against the King of the West Series as he opened ‘Louie’ weekend up by earning quick time honors aboard the Holey Smokes BBQ/Rudeen/Walker Filtration backed No. 29 machine.

Lining up fourth in his heat race, Croft would work his way to a second-place finish which would move him into the Sunnyvalley Bacon Dash where a fourth-place finish put him in the second row of the 30-lap feature

In a wild feature event that was chalk full of stoppages, Croft didn’t let it hinder him as he stayed with Dominic Scelzi every step of the way. While Scelzi led all 30-laps Croft kept him in his crosshairs all race long, despite his rhythm being interrupted by yellow and red flags.

Late in the race, Shane Golobic would pressure Croft for the second spot, but the Colfax, CA resident was having none of it and capped the opener with a runner up finish.

Looking for one spot better on Sunday during the finale, Croft would get things kicked off by timing in 7th fastest in qualifying time trials. Taking advantage of his front row starting position, Croft would race to a win in his heat race and earn a spot in the Dash.

Running third in the Dash, Croft would take the green flag from the second row as he would line up behind Justin Sanders and Colby Copeland.

Running well inside the Top-5, Croft would endure a bit of an issue a large chuck of mud got into his headers pulling the header back from the head, creating an exhaust leak.

Able to continue on, Croft’s bad luck wasn’t not over as a part failure in the front end would result in him spinning off the track on the 16th lap, and ending his night.

“We had a little bad luck, but it has been great getting back in the car and getting back into a groove,” Croft said. “I really have to thank everyone who helped all weekend long.”

Willie Croft Racing would like to thank Holey Smokes BBQ, Rudeen, Walker Performance Filtration, Art’s Craft Beer Palace, Amerikote, ButlerBuilt , 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 in 2021.

2021 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-18, Wins-1, Top 5’s-8, Top 10’s-12.

ON TAP: Willie Croft returns to action this Friday and Saturday in Chico, CA.

Corey Day Charges to 8th Place Finish in Chico, CA

PETERSEN MEDIA- Corey Day and Tarlton Motorsports overcame a lap two crash on Saturday night, and a trip to the work area on the opening lap of Sunday’s feature and recorded an eighth-place finish at the Louie Vermeil Classic in Chico, CA.

“Saturday night I missed it in qualifying and set us behind the eight ball, and ultimately we got involved in another cars crash that ended our night,” Day said. “Sunday night was way better all night long. We had a great car, and despite going to the work area on the opening lap, we were able to get back up to an eighth-place finish.”

Taking part in the 13th Louie Vermeil Classic that was held at Silver Dollar Speedway for the first time in its existence, Sunday night saw the Clovis, CA driver time the Tarlton and Son, Inc./EZ Haul/Executive Auto backed No. 21 machine in fourth fastest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Day would pocket a third-place finish in heat race action. Sitting eighth in nightly points, Day would miss out on a berth into the Dash, but still gridded the field from the fourth row.

When the race went green, Day would slow and come to a stop. Heading to the work area, the Tarlton Motorsports crew would go to work and get the youngster back out for the restart.

Restarting from the tail end of the field, Day would get his elbows up as he was able to slice and dice his way through the field. Using numerous double file restarts to his advantage, Day was able to work his way into the Top-10 as the laps clicked away.

When the checkered flag flew, Day was able to get all the way back up to his scheduled starting position as he closed the race out with an eighth-place finish.

“We have some tough luck, but nobody as thrown in the towel,” Day said. “Really have to thank the Tarlton family for a great opportunity, as well as Paul, Tyrone, and everyone who works on this car and continues to help me learn and progress.”

Tarlton Motorsports would like to thank Tarlton and Son, Inc., EZ Haul, Executive Auto Sales, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, All Star Performance, and BG Lubricants for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 21, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 3, Top 10’s: 8.

ON TAP: Tarlton Motorsports will be back in action this Friday and Saturday night in Chico, CA for the 67th Gold Cup.

 

 

Justin Sanders Scores 20th Win of Season with Louie Vermeil Classic Triumph

PETERSEN MEDIA: Justin Sanders has quickly taken a liking to Kevin Kozlowski’s Works Limited No. 57 machine. After winning two features during the King of the West’s four-race Speedweek, Sanders put the team back in Victory Lane on Sunday night at the Louie Vermeil Classic, marking his 20th win of the season.

‘I can’t say enough good things about this team,’ Justin Sanders said. “We have been really good since we unloaded at Merced Speedway a couple of weeks ago, and these guys are really fun to race with.”

Saturday night at the Vermeil Classic opener, the Aromas, CA driver opened the weekend up by timing in 14th fastest in time trials before racing to a heat race win and locking into the feature event.

On the tricky track conditions on Saturday night, issues on the race’s second lap saw damage to Sanders’ right rear force him into the work area. Able to make repairs, the charge was on.

Making up ground on the high side of the speedway, Sanders was able to work his way through the field. Making some daring moves, Sanders would get all the way back up to 12th when the checkered flag was displayed to the field.

Looking to have a better night on Sunday at the Louie Vermeil Classic finale, Sanders would get off to a stronger start on this night as he timed the Works Limited back machine in fifth fastest in time trials.

Making his way into second, Sanders’ second place finish would give him enough points to qualify for the Sunnyvalley Bacon Dash, which he would win, and he would find himself on the pole of the 30-lap feature event.

From the onset of the race, the battle was on between Sanders and Colby Copeland who battled hard for the lead on the racy ¼ mile oval. Battling hard with Copeland, Kyle Hirst would get by Sanders in traffic to overtake the second spot at the halfway point of the race.

On the 17th lap, Sanders would get by Copeland to take over the second spot in turns three and four, as he then turned his attention to the new leader, Kyle Hirst.

Getting back into traffic, Sanders would make his move on Hirst in turns one and two on lap 22. Incidental contact would see Sanders get the lead, though Hirst would continue to hound the leader.

Able to fend off Hirst’s late challenges, Sanders would pickup his 10th career win with the series, and mark his 20th overall win of the season.

“There was some good hard racing going on for the win in a really big race,” Sanders said. “I had a blast, and again, very thankful to Kevin for this opportunity and Paul, Hayden, and everyone that helps on this car.”

Justin and his team would like to thank 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 2021.

ON TAP: Sanders next event is TBD at this time.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-49, Wins-20, Top 5’s-29, Top-10’s-33

Four-race weekend ahead for Nygaard! September 3, 2021 Mike Spieker 0 Comment Huset's Speedway, Jackson Motorplex, MSTS 360 Sprints, NOSA Sprints, River Cities Speedway, Wade Nygaard

By Spieker Promotions

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (September 3, 2021) – The final month of the 2021 season is now upon us, but the Auto Finance Super Center / Your Vision Construction No. 9N team is still going full steam ahead.

Wade Nygaard is set to kick off a four-race swing through three states starting tonight at his home track, River Cities Speedway, with the NOSA 410 Sprints. Nygaard will then wrap up the weekend with a 360 cubic inch Rider under the hood.

On Saturday, he will head to Jackson Motorplex for the Power Series Nationals with the MSTS and Midwest Power Series. That will be Nygaard’s first 360 event since April 3rd at I-80 Speedway.

On Sunday and Monday, Nygaard will be back at Huset’s Speedway as the Power Series Nationals continues at the Brandon, S.D. three-eighths mile oval. Monday’s finale boasts a $10,000 payday to the winner.

Nygaard was in action for just one night last weekend at Huset’s Speedway as rain canceled the other two scheduled events for the NOSA Sprints. It was a trying evening for the 9N team as they lost a motor in hot laps, forcing them to put a 360 in for the remainder of the night. In the feature, Nygaard was collected in an incident which resulted in him going for a hard tumble, destroying the car.

With Sunday’s event at Huset’s being a NOSA points paying event, Nygaard lost the NOSA points lead to his teammate Brendan Mullen as a result of Nygaard’s 19th place finish. Still, the 10-time NOSA champion is just a single point behind Mullen entering tonight’s event at River Cities.

Thanks to our great sponsors for their continued support!

BRIGHTON'S LABOUR DAY CLASSIC
UP NEXT FOR KOT & AST

By Tommy Goudge (September 3, 2021) – The Pinty's Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car series and Pinty's Action Sprint Tour Crate Sprint Car series are heading to Brighton Speedway for a big weekend of racing. A total of 60 drivers from four provinces are entered in the event, which Brighton officials have dubbed a Sprint Car Extravaganza. Both series will run complete events with 25 lap A-Mains on Saturday, September 4 and Sunday, September 5.

The Saturday/Sunday Sprint Car tradition on Labour Day weekend at Brighton dates back to 2003. The events mark the last chance for fans to see the Knights of Thunder series east of Toronto this season, while they are the only Brighton events on the Action Sprint Tour schedule in 2021. Jim Huppunen was the Knights of Thunder winner last month in the first Sprint Car race at Brighton in nearly two years. The Action Sprint Tour also hasn't competed at Brighton since 2019. Neither of the former Brighton winners - Mack DeMan and Josh Hansen - will be competing in the AST race this weekend, leaving the weekend wide open for drivers to add their names to the Brighton win list.

VETERAN PRESENCE
The Knights of Thunder roster will be bolstered by the presence of three well-known veteran drivers this weekend; Steve Poirier, Glenn Styres, and Alain Bergeron are three of the most decorated Canadian Sprint Car drivers of their generation, and all three will be making their first Knights of Thunder series appearances at Brighton. Poirier will be driving a car entered by Glenn Styres Racing this weekend, and will be making his Brighton debut, as will his fellow Quebecer Bergeron. Styres is second on the all-time Sprint Car win list at Brighton with a total of 15 victories, four of which he has claimed on Labour Day weekend.

CHAMPIONSHIP CHASES
The Labour Day Classic events could be pivotal in both the Knights of Thunder and Action Sprint Tour points chases, as both tours will pass the halfway mark of their seasons this weekend.

Jordan Poirier's lead in the Knights of Thunder championship standings shrank to 38 points over Jim Huppunen after the latter won in his first Brighton appearance two weeks ago. Ryan Turner's consistent season has him four points behind Huppunen, while Aaron Turkey and Josh Hansen round out the top five. Travis Cunningham, Holly Porter, Liam Martin, DJ Christie, and Jamie Turner hold spots in the top ten.

Jacob Dykstra extended his lead to 57 points in the Action Sprint Tour standings following his fifth AST win of the season at Cornwall two weeks ago, followed by Allan Downey, Nick Sheridan, Lucas Smith, and Eric Gledhill. The remainder of the top ten includes Brett Stratford, Jesse Costa, Rob Neely, Darren Dryden, and Curtis Gartly.

EDDIE TAFOYA JR. RETURNS HOME JUST IN TIME TO HEAD TO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA FOR USAC/CRA RACES

(Chino Hills, CA, September 2, 2021) After a brief trip to Indiana to race in the “Bob Darland Memorial” and the USAC National Sprint Car Series “10th Annual Smackdown” at the Kokomo Speedway, Eddie Tafoya Jr. returned to his Chino Hills, California residence just in time to head back out the door for three USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series races in Northern California on Labor Day weekend. The first two races will be at the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico on Saturday and Sunday. They will be followed by a trip to the Petaluma Speedway on Monday night.

The trek north will mark Tafoya’s first appearance in the upper portion of California since 2019. That was the season he not only won the USAC CRA Series Rookie of the Year Award, but also took home the same honor in the now defunct USAC Southwest Series. As this will be USAC/CRA’s first appearance at Silver Dollar Speedway since 2018, Tafoya will be competing on the famous ¼ mile banked clay oval for the very first time. The two races at Chico will be the “13th Annual Louie Vermeil Classic” and they will pay $5,000.00 to win each night.

The last time the race affectionately known as “The Louie” was held was two years ago at the Calistoga Speedway. Held over two nights, it was Tafoya’s first ever appearance on the massive half mile clay oval. In addition, it was the first time he took part in the “California Sprint Week Series.” On his first ever night on the track, Tafoya started 22nd and finished 19th in the main event. Twenty-four hours later, the rookie driver started 16th and finished 15th.

The last time Tafoya raced on the 3/8-mile Petaluma Speedway was on September 2nd, 2019; he gave a great account of himself. It was the rookie drivers first time on the track, and he qualified 13th fastest of the 19 cars on hand. In the main event he had his best 410 finish up to that time when he started 13th and finished seventh in the 30-lap race. The final two races of the “2019 California Sprint Week” saw Tafoya place 11th in his first ever appearance at the Merced Speedway and 11th at Santa Maria as well. He raised a lot of eyebrows in those five races when he finished 11th in the standings in a tough field of cars.

Saturday’s race will be Tafoya’s first appearance in California since he recorded a career best USAAC/CRA finish of third at Perris Auto Speedway on July 17th. Prior to that race he had a sixth at Santa Maria on July 3rd and a fourth at Perris on June 16th. Those finishes came on the heels of his May 22nd Perris appearance when he had second place locked up before running out of fuel late in the race.

Despite missing four races in the USAC/CRA Series this year, Tafoya has four top-10 finishes in the six races he has participated in. That is good enough for him to be ranked 15th in the series standings heading into this weekend’s triple header.

After some tough nights in Indiana last week, Tafoya hopes to rebound this weekend. He placed sixth in the B Main at the Darland Memorial a week ago Wednesday. Thursday’s show was rained out and he placed 14th in the B Main on Friday. Saturday was a make up date for the Thursday rainout and unfortunately, the young driver got upside down after he got tangled up in somebody else’s mess in his heat race. That put a premature end to his weekend. All three of those races were held at “Indiana’s Baddest Bull Ring,” the Kokomo Speedway.

Fans can take in all three nights of this week’s action in person at both tracks. Silver Dollar Speedway is located on the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds at 2357 Fair Street, in Chico, California (95928). The track website is http://www.silverdollarspeedway.com/ and the phone number is (530) 350-7275. Petaluma Speedway is situated on the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds and Event Center in Petaluma. The address is 100 Fairgrounds Drive, Petaluma, California 94952. The track website is https://www.petaluma-speedway.com/ and the office phone number is (707) 763-RACE.

Spectator gates will open at 4:00 p.m. with racing at 6:30 in Chico. At Petaluma, spectator gates will open at 4:00 p.m. with racing at 6:00.

For fans who are unable to make the races in person, they can catch all the action live on Flo Racing. Sign up information for the Flo PPV service is at https://www.floracing.com/.

TRENT WILLIAMS HEADS TO CENTRAL ARIZONA SPEEDWAY THIS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY

(Hesperia, CA, September 3, 2021) Trent Williams returns to Sprint Car action this Saturday and Sunday, September 4th, and 5th, in the Central Arizona Speedway Sprint Car Series. Both races will take place at the Central Arizona Speedway in Casa Grande. It will be his first time back in the cockpit since July 10th.

This weekend’s events will be races number seven and eight this year for the 2014 Perris Auto Speedway Young Guns Sprint Car champion. Unlike many other racers, his schedule is varied, and Williams picks and chooses where he wants to compete. In his first six races this year, he has participated in five different series! They include 360s with the Central Arizona Speedway Sprint Cars, USAC West Coast Sprint Cars and the Ventura Racing Association. He has also raced his 410 sprint car in the Barona Speedway open competition class. The only organization he has raced with more than one time is the USAC/CRA 410 Sprint Cars. However, that will change this weekend when he hits the track for the second and third time with the Central Arizona group.

His best result thus far in 2021 came on the Barona Speedway ¼ mile dirt oval in San Diego County when Williams won the main event on May 1st. One month later in the USAC West Coast Series at the beach side Ventura Raceway, he placed fourth in the main event.

This weekend's journey across the desert will be the second of the year for the Apple Valley, California resident to compete at the track that is located about 45 minutes south of Phoenix. When Williams was there to open the 2021 season on April 4th, he won his heat race on the 3/8-mile-high banked oval. After starting sixth in the main event, he dropped back as far as ninth, before coming all the way back to challenge for fourth . However, his right front steering arm broke, dropping him to an 11th place finish.

On Labor Day weekend 2020, the driver known as “T-Dub” also did the doubleheader at Central Arizona Speedway. On the first night he started 20th in the main event, passed 10 cars and finished 10th. The second night he was in eighth place when he was clobbered by another driver and knocked out of the race.

Fans wanting to watch Williams in person this weekend can find the Central Arizona Speedway at 512 N 11 Mile Corner Road in Casa Grande, AZ (85194). Spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. both days with racing at 7:00. Central Arizona Speedway is a cash only facility. The track website is http://centralarizonaspeedway.com/ and the office phone number is (520) 709-0718.

After this weekend’s races in Arizona, Williams will be competing closer to home when the USAC/CRA Series returns to Perris Auto Speedway in Riverside County on Saturday, September 25th. He will follow that up with a race at the Barona Speedway on October 2nd.

Williams would like to thank the following marketing partners for making it possible to run his Maxim Chassis/Shaver Engines #52V in the 2021 season. Victory Boys Performance, Motul, NGK Spark Plugs and Sorrento Homes. If you or your business would like to be a part of the Cal State Fullerton marketing graduate’s racing team, please call (760) 780-8782 or mailto:trent.williams.racing@gmail.com.

BREYTON SANTEE CAPS OFF RACEWAY 7 RUSH LATE MODEL CHAMPIONSHIP WITH A WIN; LAST LAP PASS NETS VETERAN JAROD LARSON HIS 2ND STRAIGHT RUSH SPRINT VICTORY AT SHARON; STEVE DIXON REMAINS RED HOT IN RUSH PRO MODS AT BRADFORD

By Marcie Barlow

(September 2, 2021) - (Pulaski, PA)...Mother Nature tried to play havoc last weekend with threatening weather throughout the region each night of the weekend claiming some events each night. Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series action featured two last laps passes as Chub Frank (RUSH Late Model Flynn’s Tire/Born2 Run Lubricants Touring Series) and Jarod Larson (RUSH Sprint Cars) kept the fans on the edge of their seats at Sharon Speedway this past weekend. Weekly RUSH Late Model action also saw Breyton Santee, Daryl Charlier, Brian Knowles, Jeremy Wonderling, and Chad Homan score victories. Steve Dixon remained red hot in the RUSH Pro Mods.

Raceway 7 ran their final RUSH Late Model race of the year last Friday night, and the Conneaut, Ohio oval was the only RUSH track able to complete their show. Track champion Breyton Santee led from start-to-finish despite early challenges from brothers Chad and Cory Sines. For Santee it was his third win of the year at Raceway 7, and never finished worse than sixth all season. Santee also claimed the $1,000 "Track Pack" championship. Darrell Bossard made just his fourth start of the season and was a season best runner-up. Bud Watson, who won the previous two shows, was third over Chad Sines and Billy Henry, Jr.

Pace Performance RUSH Late Model action at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway was led to the green flag by Dan Lepro and Daryl Charlier. Charlier led the initial lap before a caution slowed the field. Charlier went on to weather several cautions that slowed the field, but he never relinquished the lead and would go on to score his third victory of the season at the Imperial, Pa. oval. Eighth place starter Ben Policz came home in second with Cole Petrelle, Mike Reft and Lepro completing the top five.

Woodhull Raceway RUSH Late Model action saw points leader Brian Knowles line up seventh as the green flag waved. Knowles methodically worked his way through the field and passed Joe Layfield for the lead on lap three. Knowles cruised to his fourth Woodhull win of 2021 while Layfield, Jim Buck and Jason McGregor battled for positions two through four. Layfield finished in the runner-up position for a season best effort with Buck, McGregor and Tony Kelley rounding out the top five.

Chad Homan took advantage of a night off at Fulton Speedway to visit Genesee Speedway on Saturday night. The 25-lap main event saw Homan lead the first four laps before Bill Holmes took over and led laps five through 20. Homan was able to use the top side of the speedway to get by Holmes on lap 21 and drove off to score the win, which was his 13 of the season on the RUSH circuit. Holmes held off the late race charge of Doug Ricotta to finish second and also claim his first track championship at the speedway. Ricotta, Dave DuBois and Paul Grigsby followed.

The Pace Performance Flynn’s Tire/Born2Run Lubricants Touring Series made their first appearance in nearly five years at Sharon Speedway on Saturday night. The action featured side-by-side battles for the lead and throughout the field as veteran Chub Frank made a last lap pass of Joe Martin to score the victory in the inaugural "Bill Forney Memorial". It was Frank’s first career victory in RUSH Touring Series action and he also scored a $3,199 payday for his efforts. By virtue of his win in the dash, Michael Duritsky, Jr. led the event at the start with Frank and Jeremy Wonderling following. A caution on lap six slowed the field. On the ensuing restart eighth place starter Joe Martin began his charge to the front using the high side of the track. Duritsky, Frank, Wonderling, David Pangrazio and Martin distanced themselves from the rest of the field and at times battled three wide for the top five positions. Duritsky took the top spot on lap 21 and unfortunately heartbreak struck on the next circuit when he made contact with a slower competitor and suffered a flat tire.

Frank and Martin battled for the final eight laps; Frank ran the bottom and Martin the top. Martin was able to pull even with Frank on lap 27 and grabbed the lead on the following circuit. The duo raced side-by-side for the final two circuits with Martin changing lanes on the final lap in an attempt to prevent Frank from regaining the lead. Martin washed across the track in turn four and Frank won the sprint to the checkered flag. Martin came home in second with Kyle Hardy, who had competed in the Lucas Oil Late Model events at Port Royal Speedway the prior two nights, claiming third. Pangrazio finished fourth. Cory Sines, who started 14th, came home in fifth for a career best Tour finish. The RUSH Tour returns to Sharon on September 10-11 for the "Cider Jug 40" paying $4,000 to-win.

The Pace Performance RUSH Sprint Cars were also in action at Sharon Speedway. Blaze Myers led the first two laps before Zach Morrow took the lead. Tenth place starter Jared Larson moved into third by lap three and battled Myers for two laps before gaining the position and setting his sights on Morrow. Larson used a slider to get by Morrow for the lead on lap seven, but Myers nipped Larson at the line to lead on the 12th lap. The two battled side-by-side for several laps with Myers finally getting the upper hand and appearing to be on his way to capturing his first career Sprint Car victory, but a last lap crash by Nolan Groves intervened. The crash gave Larson the opportunity that he needed as he drove by Myers on the outside to score a 0.321 second victory. A disappointed Myers scored his third second place finish of the season in Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series at Sharon. Chad Ruhlman, John Mollick and Brandon Shughart rounded out the top five

RUSH Sportsman Modified action was up next for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly Series and Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series event. Ben Easler grabbed the lead from Jordan Ehrenberg at the start with Garrett Krummert, Rob Kristyak, Chas Wolbert and Tony Tatgenhorst following. Wolbert slipped under Krummert on lap five and was all over Easler when the caution waved on lap seven. Wolbert snuck by Easler on the restart and Krummert did the same on lap ten. Following two mid-race cautions, the final 10 laps were caution free. Wolbert was never challenged and scored an apparent commanding 3.851 victory over Krummert; however, Wolbert's win and Tatgenhorst's third place finish are on hold until further tech inspection. Easler was fourth with Ehrenberg fifth.

Bradford Speedway was able to defeat Mother Nature on Sunday evening as Pace Performance RUSH Late Model Weekly Series action saw Jeremy Wonderling score his sixth victory in seven tries of the season at the speedway. Kurt Stebbins came home in second with Steve Dixon, Andy Michael and Jason Dobson finishing third, fourth and fifth respectively.

The lone RUSH Pro Mod event of the weekend took place at Bradford Speedway. Steve Dixon continued his dominance winning for the seventh time in the last eight races. Al Brewer tallied the second position with Mike Eschrich, Duane Powers and Critter Hemphill completing the top five.

Winners in RUSH Karting action at Stateline Speedway Kart on Saturday were Bexley Smith (Amateur), Ethan Arnone (JR-1), Cody Rickard (JR-1), and Jill Rickard (Adult). The Karts will be in action on both Saturday and Sunday this weekend at Stateline.

Mother Nature scored the win several times this weekend as Dog Hollow Speedway, Potomac Speedway and the Hill Speedway all fell victim to the weather on Friday. Saturday evening Winchester Speedway fell victim to rain as did Eriez Speedway on Sunday. RUSH racing competitors had the weekend off at Delaware International Speedway, Fulton Speedway and Stateline Speedway.

Pace Performance RUSH racing action for the Labor Day weekend will take place at Dog Hollow Speedway and the Hill Speedway Friday evening. Stateline will have heats on Friday night for the Late Models and Pro Mods followed by $2,000 and $1,000 to-win main events respectively on Saturday night. Saturday night's RUSH action is on tap at Delaware International Speedway, Fulton Speedway, Genesee Speedway, Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway ($2,000 to-win for the "Red Miley Rumble") and Woodhull Raceways. Bradford Speedway has the fifth Annual Jim Torrence Memorial scheduled on Sunday with both the RUSH Late Models and Pro Mods on the card. Pittsburgh also has the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds on Saturday night.

The RUSH Sprint Cars will have a doubleheader weekend of $600 to-win Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series events on both Saturday and Sunday night. Raceway 7 has rescheduled their June 25 rained out RUSH Sprint Car event to next Saturday, September 11 for $800 to-win, $160 to-start, which will follow the Friday night show at Raceway 7.

Raceway 7, Potomac Speedway, Sharon Speedway, Winchester Speedway and Eriez Speedway RUSH competitors can enjoy the weekend off.

Steffens On Verge of Du Quoin Silver Crown Score

Youngest Winner In Du Quoin History Finished Top 5 at Springfield

By Jay Hardin

Track Enterprises Staff

Du Quoin, IL-(September 2, 2021)-St. Charles, Missouri’s Kyle Steffens is more than 20 years removed from his “upset” victory on the Magic Mile at the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds. The anniversary of his stirring 2000 Oldani Memorial win comes Saturday night when the USAC Silver Crown Series teams unload for the annual Ted Horn 100. This time Steffens won’t be in a UMP Modified, he will be behind the wheel of his own Silver Crown machine and comes in riding the wave of a top 5 finish at Springfield. On August 21, Steffens qualified a strong ninth and ran to fifth at the end, his first ever top five in a Silver Crown car on one of the dirt miles.

Steffens was a raw sixteen-year-old in 2000 when he battled his far more experienced friend Kevin Gundaker, Jeff Leka, and Jeff Parks in the UMP Modified event held just before the Ted Horn 100. Steffens was hardly one of the odds-on favorites that cloudy day but showed no fear of the high speeds or the stellar field he faced on the Magic Mile. Steffens started twelfth and took the lead with seven to go in the main event. It was a wild celebration in victory lane with Steffens hugging everyone he could find including announcer Jim Childers.

Steffens went on to run UMP late models and modifieds on the short tracks in Missouri and Illinois and developed a fan following. He also raced some of the larger events but never lost his desire to run in the dirt miles in a championship dirt car. Steffens returned in a family-owned car for his Du Quoin Silver Crown debut in 2001 but failed to make the show. The same result occurred in 2002.

The Steffens family sold their dirt car but Kyle was able to pick up occasional rides with Bob Galas and Chuck Hartenstein. Steffens made his first Ted Horn 100 with Galas in 2005 finishing 26th after completing 35 miles. Steffens best finish on any of the dirt miles prior to the 2021 Bettenhausen 100 was a couple of 13th place runs, the last of those coming in the 2019 Ted Horn 100 at Du Quoin which coincided with his return to the series in his own machine.

The Steffens team has been improving each event since Kyle came back on a regular basis in 2019. Steffens finished 14th at Springfield in the 2020 COVID interrupted season completing all 100 miles. His car was very strong in the Bettenhausen 100 this year. He was 23rd fastest out of 38 in the practice session and going out 15th in the order qualified nearly as fast as he practiced setting 13th quick time. He drove a steady race and was still running near the front when the red came out for an accident and then rain.

With the entry list for the 69th Ted Horn 100 being similar to the Bettenhausen 100 at Springfield, at least six drivers who have victories on the Magic Mile would be part of the field with four having won the Ted Horn 100. Steffens would be one of two who have wins on the big track, just not in the mighty uprights. Kyle Steffens would love to add his name to the list of Ted Horn 100 winners at the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds.

His quest starts Saturday night with practice for the USAC Silver Crown championship cars at 5 p.m., qualifying slated at 6:30 and the Ted Horn 100 at 8:15 p.m. Tickets will be available on race day or by calling the Du Quoin Fair office at 618-542-1535. Info and tickets can also be obtained by calling the Track Enterprises office at 217-764-3200.

It's all part of a Labor Day weekend of racing that also features the ARCA Menards Series on Sunday night and Modifieds both nights. For full information, visit www.trackenterprises.com.

 

 

BIG NAMES COMING TO AGASSIZ SPEEDWAY NEXT WEEK

Well known names from the past and present are coming to Agassiz Speedway Friday and Saturday, September 10 and 11 for the fifth annual Fred Rannard, Sr. Open Wheel Classic.
Once again this year it is Agassiz's only two day event of the season and the only one featuring just open wheel cars.
The three division program will feature the West Coast Vintage Racers (sprint cars and super modifieds from the 70's, 80's and 90's), midgets and dwarf cars.
Here are a few of the drivers that are expected at the 1/4 mile paved oval located 90 minutes east of Vancouver:
-Aaron Willison of Langley is a former Agassiz Speedway midget and mini stock champion and will be back racing at Agassiz for the first time in five years. He now drives pavement sprint cars where he is a three time NSRA series champion, two time winner of the Rory Price Memorial race and a two time Daffodil Cup champ.
-Troy Globe from Agassiz is the two time and defending winner of the midget portion of the Fred Rannard, Sr. Open Wheel Classic and a two time Agassiz midget champ. He is also a former Washington Midget Racing Association champion. Troy will be racing a sprint car for the first time as well as his midget next week.
-Tyson Cross of Langley has won three of the last four sprint car races at the Fred Rannard, Sr. Open Wheel Classic. In his 30 year racing career he has raced both dirt and pavement sprint cars and is a two time Deming Speedway champion in the 1200 division. Tyson's father, Jack Cross, a former winner at Langley Speedway and with the CAMRA series will be his son's crew chief at Agassiz next week.
-Aaron Fell from Abbotsford is racing on the pavement for just the second year after spending the rest of his career on dirt tracks. He has raced both 360 and 410 sprint cars at Skagit Speedway and is a three time Deming Speedway champ in the 1200 class where he is also a former Clay Cup winner.
-17 year old Levi Klatt of Langley finished second to Troy Globe last year in Saturday's midget race in what was his first time racing at Agassiz. Like Cross and Fell, Levi is also a former Deming Speedway champ but in the 600 restricted division. As usual, he will be racing against his father, Jeremiah Franklin, in the midget division. Jeremiah is a two time champion at Agassiz in the mini stock class.
-Murray Jones from Chilliwack has won in almost every class of car that has ever raced at Agassiz Speedway. He is still a regular in the street stock class, holds the hornet track record and will be back in a sprint car for the first time in two years next week.
-Bill Lawrence of Kelowna was a winner in the 1970's at Langley Speedway in the modified stock class and then went on to race in the NASCAR Northwest tour. He won two sprint car races, both in Idaho, in 2019.
-Matt Stephenson from Kaleden won the sprint car race last year on Saturday at the Fred Rannard, Sr. Open Wheel Classic. He has adapted quickly to open wheel racing after spending most of his career in stock cars. Matt is a former WESCAR late model champion and Penticton Speedway street stock champ.
-Rick Taylor of Penticton won the dwarf car feature last year on Friday at Agassiz where he is the former track record holder. He is a former AMCA and Okanagan dwarf car champion.
-JF Launier from Osoyoos is seen regularly on the TV show Rust Valley Restorers. He came to the Fred Rannard, Sr. Open Wheel Classic last year to help his friend, Matt Stephenson, but when John White needed a driver for his super modified JF jumped at the chance and he was hooked. He is now the regular driver of that same car he now owns with Jeff Kennedy.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Friday and Saturday, September 10 and 11 the pits will open at 2:00, spectator gates at 4:30 with racing at 6:30. As usual there will be plenty of prize giveaways for the fans.
Agassiz Speedway will be open for practice on Thursday, September 9 from 4:00-7:00 followed by a complimentary barbecue for all drivers and crews.

Bonus note: for example, if car number 1 is scored the leader at the end of lap 24, and if car number 2 passes car number 1 on that final lap and takes the win, car number 2 wins the bonus. There has to be pass for the lead on the 25th lap, and the lap 24 and lap 25 scored leaders must be different for the award to be won.
Make plans to JOIN US on 67 Speedway of Texarkana on Friday September 17th and I-30 Speedway on Saturday September 18th - which now will pay potentially a combined $4,500 to win – if a driver happens to collect the $500 Kool Trikes Last Lap Pass For The Win award!

FLOWDYNAMICS RACING HEADS TO SILVER DOLLAR AND PETALUMA SPEEDWAYS ON LABOR DAY WEEKEND

(Ontario, CA, September 1, 2021) Flowdynamics Racing has a busy Labor Day weekend on tap as it hits the trail to contest the next three rounds of competition in the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series. Drivers Matt McCarthy and Logan Williams will be on the track for two nights, Saturday and Sunday, at the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico. One night later the team will make its way to the Petaluma Speedway for the annual USAC/CRA race on the track located just north of the Bay Area.

The Saturday and Sunday portion of the trip will see the teammates competing in the “13th Annual Louis Vermeil Classic.” This weekend will mark the first year the race has been held anywhere but the huge ½ mile Calistoga Speedway. Instead at Chico, the Flowdynamics duo will be making a rare appearance on a ¼ mile banked clay oval track. Both Williams and McCarthy will be looking to add one of the coveted “Louie” sculpted trophies to the mantelpiece in their houses from the Chico races. The following night at Petaluma, they will return to a more familiar 3/8 of a mile dirt oval. The series, which is in its 17th year of operation, will be making it’s only visit to each of the tracks in 2021.

Heading into the three days of racing, McCarthy is 11th in the season long championship standings. However, he is only 48-points out of seventh. Before the last race at Perris Auto Speedway on August 21st, the 2017 USAC/CRA Rookie of the Year had reeled off three straight top 10 finishes. In addition, he won his first ever 410 sprint car main event at an open show at the Barona Speedway on August 7th. Unfortunately, a crash early in the Perris main event knocked the Riverside, California resident out of the race with a 20th place finish.

Williams, who resides in Yorba Linda, California, is only two spots and 39-points behind his Flowdynamics teammate. The 2013 Perris Auto Speedway Young Guns champion and 2014 USAC/CRA Rookie of the Year has raced seven USAC/CRA races in this, his comeback season. In those seven races he has placed in the top 10 four times. The last time out at Perris in the “California Racer’s Hall of Fame Night,” he came home ninth in the 30-lap main event.

Goldesberry Grabs Top 5 at Granite City

Springfield, IL (September 1, 2021) – Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team had two races on their radar last week but unfortunately the weather radar Sunday night at Joliet was not favorable and forced the cancellation of the annual Bill Waite Jr Memorial. The team had a solid showing Friday night at Granite City, IL with MOWA.

With MOWA using a draw to line up the heat races and passing points, the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim would start third in Heat 2. Goldesberry would work his way past the leaders and go on to win the heat race. He would earn enough points to make the redraw for the feature in which he would draw the #3 and start third in the main event. The Rockstar Energy Drink machine would stay up front the entire race and do battle at the front for the majority of the race. When the checkers flew, Goldesberry would cross the line fourth and earn another Top 5.

“It was a good night for us at Granite City. We made a few changes last week and we were better. It was good to be back in the Top 5. We look forward to getting back to Wisconsin this week for three races.” said Goldesberry.

This weekend the IRA has a Labor Day triple header. Friday night the action will be in Beaver Dam, WI at the Dodge County Fairgrounds on the half mile. Saturday the action moves to Plymouth, WI where the Rockstar Energy Drink team saw victory lane in July. Sunday will head further north to 141 Speedway in Francis Creek, WI.

SEASON STATS- 28 races, 1 win, 6 top 5’s, 11 top 10’s

Riden Breaks Drought With BAPS Win

George Riden had been trying to get his RaceSaver sprint car out to the track more often. It paid off Sunday night, when the Elizabethtown veteran won his first PA Sprint Series race in nine years, taking the 20-lap feature at BAPS Motor Speedway.

After finishing fourth in his heat race, Riden drew the outside pole for the feature and took the lead from pole-sitter Drew Young on lap three. He then fought off a ferocious challenge from Dom Melair, whose efforts to go past the Tool Shed of America/Gutshall’s Automotive/Carlisle Cement Products #99 on the outside fell just short.

“Work has gotten pretty busy,” Riden said in victory lane. “Racing had to be put on the back burner, but these guys over here have been working their butts off, and we finally found some speed. It’s been a long time, man, so I’m just happy, just happy.”

The win was Riden’s seventh with PASS but his first since September 29, 2112. All six previous wins were at Path Valley Speedway.

The veteran racer was a PASS regular from 2005-13 but has run sporadically since then and didn’t compete at all in 2020. This was his sixth start of 2021, and a fifth-place finish at Selinsgrove back in May showed that driver and car still had it in them. The combination really paid off Sunday.

Melair, of Warrington, who started third, moved past Young on lap four and did everything possible to get by Riden but had to settle for second, only 0.150 seconds back. Derek Hauck of Allenwood, who had started eighth, advanced past several other stout runners and appeared to have something for Melair and even Riden near the end, but he wound up one-and-a-half seconds back of the leader in third.

Mid Atlantic Sprint Series regular Tim Iulg of Bridgetown, N.J., ran to a solid fourth, and Doug Dodson of Middletown finished fifth and claimed the Auto Core Recycling Hard Charger Award, coming from 13th starting position.

Ken Duke Jr., Justin Mills, Rick Stief, Erin Statler and Tim Tanner Jr. completed the top 10.

After a caution on the initial restart for a Mike Melair spin, the race ran 14 straight green flag laps before defending IMCA/RaceSaver National Champion and 2020 PASS Champ Garrett Bard rolled over in turn four and brought the red flag out. He was uninjured. Another caution two laps later slowed the field when Drew Young stopped in turn three. After his strong run, Young received the Auto Core Recycling Hard Luck Award.

That set the stage for a final battle over an open track, and Riden, Dom Melair and Hauck kept the crowd on edge until the checkered flag fell.

Besides Dodson, other notable chargers included John Walp and Aiden Borden, each of whom improved by seven positions, and last-starting John Fiore, who advanced six places. Hauck topped the chargers who started in the top 10 with his move of five spots.

Heats for the 27-car field went to Justin Mills, Tim Iulg and Ken Duke Jr. The only incident during the heats came in the first when Donavyn Knokey spun his #17K and collected Frank Rusnock in the 17R. Both 17s had problems again in the B-Main when Rusnock failed to start after a mechanical problem during the line-up laps, and Knokey spun midway through the race and retired. Mike Melair was the B-Main winner.

This Saturday the PASS sprinters return to Path Valley Speedway and join the wingless super sportsman cars, 270 and 600 micro sprints, 4-cylinder thunder cars and 4-cylinder strictly stocks. Gates will open at 4:00 p.m. with warm-ups starting at 6:00.

Sprint Invaders Return to Scene of Photo Finish Friday in Moberly!

(Bill W) September 1, 2021 – Two cars came roaring to the finish line at the Randolph County Raceway in early August not sure who the winner was. Garet Williamson ended up claiming his first career Sprint Invaders win, but Ayrton Gennetten was right there as well. Friday, September 3, both are expected to return to aim for the $2,000 top prize on the high banks near Moberly, Missouri.

Two-time series’ champion, Chris Martin, fresh off a win at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, leads the current point race, ahead of Jonathan Cornell, Kaley Gharst, Colton Fisher and Tanner Gebhardt. Daniel Bergquist, Wyatt Wilkerson, Cody Wehrle, Josh Schneiderman and Josh Higday round out the top ten.

Friday will be the fifth time in the last two seasons that the Sprint Invaders have invaded the 4/10-mile high banked oval. In addition to Williamson’s win in August, Gennetten took two victories and Randy Martin one in 2020.

Grandstands open at 5 p.m. with hot laps scheduled for 7 p.m., with racing to follow. Adult grandstand admission is $20, Seniors/Military are $15, and kids 13 and under are FREE. B Mods and 4 cylinders are also on the card.

Sprint Invaders Return to East Moline September 26

After an event in July that brought fans to their feet, and drivers smiling under their helmets, the Sprint Invaders will make a return visit to East Moline Speedway in East Moline, Illinois on Sunday, September 26.

Reutzel Launches Jailbreak Tour 2021 this Weekend with All Stars at Attica Ambush!

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (September 1, 2021) – He’s back!

After serving a 30-day suspension levied by the World of Outlaws for technical violations, Aaron Reutzel returns to racing action this weekend with the All Star Circuit of Champions at Attica Raceway Park’s “Attica Ambush” in Ohio.

And he’ll be with a new team, joining forces with the Ridge and Son Racing (RSR) No. 8 team that also includes crew chief Tyler Swank.

“I really didn’t expect something to come together this soon, I thought it would be later in the year when other things started to shake up,” Reutzel says.

The timing proved to be perfect for the new pairing with previous RSR pilot Lynton Jeffrey’s contract with the team expiring with last weekend’s Knoxville Raceway finale.

“Lynton was the one who when Aaron got suspended said, ‘You’ve got to go hire this guy’,” explained team owner Brian Ridge. “He was instrumental in helping get this team going and pushing us along to that.”

The new teaming matched up in a number of ways.

“Once we all sat down and talked, it seemed like an ideal situation for everyone involved,” Reutzel says. “Tyler (Swank) and I both like to be at home as much as we can, so now we can pick the races that we want to go to and when we don’t want to be out traveling because of weather or stuff like that then we can stay close to home and race at Knoxville.”

The slate for Reutzel and RSR is likely to be a pick-and-choose style schedule of events.

“I hadn’t really been looking to get on the World of Outlaws tour, there was just an offer that I couldn’t say no to,” Reutzel says. “This new opportunity really fits what I had been looking for, we’ll look to do about 80 races a year.”

The Jailbreak Tour 2021 begins Friday and Saturday in familiar territory for Reutzel, as he’s back in action with the All Star Circuit of Champions at Attica Raceway Park. Reutzel reeled off three consecutive All Star titles in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

“Attica is a place that I feel like we’ve always been really good or really bad,” Reutzel recalls. “Hopefully we hit it right and get things off on the right foot with RSR this weekend.”

Reutzel has been on the podium in four of his last seven All Star Circuit of Champions starts at Attica Raceway Park including a pair of wins, one of which occurred on the opening night of the 2019 Attica Ambush.

With five wins on the season thus far, including one in All Star competition to open the season, Reutzel looks to add his to his 37 career All Star Circuit of Champions wins this weekend.

2021 Quick Stats: 62 races, 5 wins, 18 top-fives, 40 top-tens.

Next Up: All Star Circuit of Champions “Attica Ambush” at Ohio’s Attica Raceway Park on Friday and Saturday. Those unable to attend can watch all the action live on www.floracing.com.

Format Refreshed for Upcoming 34th Annual Short Track Nationals at I-30 Speedway!

Lonnie Wheatley, LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (September 1, 2021) – The annual tradition continues in just one month.

The tradition of the Sprint Car racing masses congregating upon Little Rock, Arkansas, as I-30 Speedway hosts the 34th Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires.

This year’s $10,041-to-win tilt will take place on September 30, October 1 and October 2 atop the high-banked ¼-mile clay oval.

A Thursday night, September 30, Test N’ Tune session from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. will precede Friday’s preliminary action followed up by Saturday night’s championship slate of events.

An event with such great tradition that boasts a past winner’s list with names such as Kinser, Swindell, Bell, Sweet and more, it’s also an event that continues to evolve to keep fans on the edge of their seats throughout.

This year’s rendition offers up a format that is a melding of All Star and Sprintcar Classic formats.

Friday’s preliminary event will be contested under a derivative of the All Star Circuit of Champions format, with group qualifying setting heat race lineups. The Friday preliminary will conclude with “Twin 20’s”, a pair of $1,500-to-win 20-lap “A” Main events.

The top two from each of the “Twin 20’s” will be locked into Saturday night’s “Dash for Cash” and the championship main event.

Event points accumulated from Friday night’s qualifying, heat races and feature events will set Saturday night heat race lineups with more points from those setting the balance of Saturday night feature lineups. Additionally, the top two in accumulated points after Saturday heats will join the four Friday night lock-ins in the “Dash for Cash”.

The adjusted format will only amp up the intensity each time the cars are on track, likely making for yet another legendary edition of the Short Track Nationals.

Last year, Sam Hafertepe, Jr., finally broke into STN championship victory lane for the first time after three previous preliminary wins and three runner-up finishes. The Sunnyvale, TX, racer battled past Roger Crockett at the midway point and went on to become the 19th different STN winner ahead of Derek Hagar and Crockett.

Hall of Famers Sammy Swindell and Gary Wright top the STN win charts with five and four triumphs respectively with other past event winners including the likes of NASCAR Cup Series title contender Christopher Bell, Hafertepe, Jr., Blake Hahn, Paul McMahan, Brad Sweet, Tony Bruce, Jr., Jason Meyers, Jason Johnson, Tim Montgomery, Jason Sides, Mike Ward, Tim Crawley, Wayne Johnson, Pete Butler, Terry Gray, John Gerloff and Steve Kinser.

RUSH RACING SERIES LOADED WITH NUMEROUS NEW TALENTED YOUNG RACERS; ENSURING BRIGHT FUTURE FOR RUSH-SANCTIONED SPEEDWAYS

By Doug Kennedy

(September 1, 2021) -

(Pulaski, PA)...One of the most important goals of the Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series throughout the years has always to keep people racing via the true “cost containment” technical rules packages that are surrounded by outstanding championship programs.

RUSH's formula continues to prove successful as nearly 30 different speedways throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic have presented hundreds of exciting RUSH-sanctioned events in 2021 featuring numerous well-known veteran drivers as well as many in the prime of their careers. One of the most exciting and important factors that RUSH has created throughout the Series is a tremendous opportunity for young racers to be able to step into a full size race car at an affordable cost!

"It's just amazing to watch all of our young racers compete throughout the RUSH Series", stated Series Director Vicki Emig. "It's so satisfying to know that our concept is allowing their parents to be able to put them in a competitive full-size race car at such a young age. We've watched so many racers begin their careers with us, some who had never turned a lap in a race car, become some of our regions toughest competitors and race door-to-door with seasoned veterans as time went on; I don't think there is anything more satisfying than that!"

One of the developmental programs of RUSH is the "Futures Cup" Championship, a stand-alone program in each RUSH division that allows member teenage racers to compete for their own individual championships over and above all other RUSH programs. Drivers who are 18 or 19 cannot have more than year of experience in an equal or higher division to be eligible.

Eighteen-year old Zach Crawford of McDonald, Pa. got his start racing bicycles. He was part of the NBL which is now the USA BMX. In 2011, Crawford went to Tulsa for the Grand Nationals. A bad wreck ended his cycling career so his dad, Jim, got Zach into a 4 Cylinder to begin his auto racing career in 2020. “Over the winter my dad said if we’re going to get into this we should get into it the best way we can and that’s where the RUSH Late Model came in.” said Zach. “Dad owns the team, but I pitch in whenever I can.”

“I feel like it’s a great place to start,” Zach said of the RUSH Series. “They (RUSH) run the Series very well. I enjoy the ("Wheelman") non-qualifiers race as it gives drivers the chance who don’t qualify for the main event to be still be able to race in their own event that night. I’m hoping to get a better feel for the car and get a couple of wins under our belt in the future.”

Crawford currently works in his dad’s Sewickley based business, Crawford Auto Repair. Kassidy Kamicker of Aliquippa, Pa., the 2020 RUSH Late Model "Wheelman Champion", is one of the female participants of RUSH. Kamicker, a graduate of Hopewell High School, started racing in go-karts at age 10, and moved up to the RUSH Late Models last year when she turned 17.

“I like the people that are involved with RUSH,” Kamicker said. “Everyone is nice and are always willing to help out. They’re really good at promoting their drivers. They put your name out there so others know who you are. I think the rules are good and I like how they do their different point funds. Last year, I won the Wheelman Championship and I got a nice granite plaque and jacket.”

Kamicker’s dad, Craig, and mom, Melanie, do the financial part of the race team. They are also fortunate to have seven other sponsors, On race day at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway, Kassidy has her mom, dad, Uncle Jay, her boyfriend John, and friends Joe and Brandy there at the track to help out.

She feels that her racing has improved dramatically over the last two years and plans on returning to competition in 2022 at PPMS, she may even venture to Lernerville and Sharon Speedways. She will be going to CCBC to major in business management and one day hopes to own a race shop.

Currently leading the RUSH Late Model "Futures Cup" is 19-year-old Logan Jaquay of Bear Lake, Pa., a sophomore and wrestler at Edinboro University. This is Logan’s first full season of racing with RUSH, who for 10 years previous raced go-karts.

Jaquay is part of the Briggs Transport operation and has had the opportunity to travel and work on the cars of both Boom Briggs and Chub Frank. Logan stated, "Both have been a great help to me, they've done it their wholes lives and know what I need, it's all worked out very well!"

Uncle Steve said, “Logan’s career is real promising. A lot of people comment that he’s just a natural behind the wheel. Go-Karts can be as tough as the Late Model."

“I had a car and knew I was going to be racing at Stateline and Eriez, both of which had a good thing going with RUSH then why not join," said Logan. “It has really worked out for us; I love the idea of having the same rules package so you can take your car to different tracks and be competitive. I also like the touring series.”

Seventeen-year-old Ashton Briggs is in his first season of racing a RUSH Late Model. Briggs, who resides in Erie, Pa, will be a senior this coming year at Erie McDowell and also works at Blue Beacon Truck Wash cleaning trucks and trailers and contributes his earnings to the race team.

Ashton, whose cousins are Chub Frank and Boom Briggs, as well as Logan Jaquay, began racing a go-kart at age seven and continued doing so for nine more seasons. He now competes with his RUSH Late Model at Eriez and Stateline along a one appearance at both Raceway 7 and Sharon. The team, which is financed by his dad Brodie and his mom Tricia.

As for RUSH, Tricia said, “I think it’s a great opportunity for these young drivers. It’s very professionally run. I just wish we would have known about it (Futures) Cup earlier. Either way, Vicki (Emig) has been so, so helpful.”

“I think RUSH is a good series that allows me to compete close to home,” added Ashton, who won the Non-Qualifier last Saturday at Sharon Speedway in just his second Touring Series start. “I really like the point funds and Manufacturers Night.” As for the help he gets from Chub and Boom, Ashton said, “Chub built and sets up my car and has helped me with many things from the beginning of my career; Boom gives me tips and other advice to help me. Everything is going pretty good right now with a couple of top 10’s and hopefully top 5’s will be coming soon.”

Philip Bubeck, at 18, is another young driver in the RUSH Late Model Series. He has been racing at PPMS for most of this season. Prior to the Late Model, Philip raced a Mini Wedge and a 4-Cylinder.

Philip works at a garage called B&J Performance for its two owners, Bill and April Tennant. “They own the car and I drive for them,” said Bubeck.

It’s a family affair for the Bubeck’s as Philip’s younger brother, Noah, also races at PPMS in a 4-Cylinder. His parents, Brian and Stephanie and his grandparents, Phil and Diane, are also involved. “That’s what makes things happen and fun with the whole family involved.”

Phil and Kyle Lukon also add to Philip’s racing prowess. “They help out with the set-up and how to drive the Late Model transitioning from the 4-Cylinder.”

Bob and Paula Quaigg also are a big help for Philip since they found the car that we bought. Both of the Quaiggs also help at the racetrack as well.

The driver from Collier, West Virginia likes the RUSH Series. “I think it’s awesome, and we like everything about RUSH," stated Bubeck. "I definitely want to travel around, but before that we want to get some more seat time”

Fifteen year old Ben Easler of Linesville, PA is one of six drivers competing in the "Futures Cup" for the Sportsman Modifieds. After spending six years in a Go-Kart, Ben switched to a Sportsman Mod for 2021.

“He won a feature in his 7th race,” said his dad, Jason. “He surprised everyone including himself.”

Their #02 racecar is leased from Russ King Racing. “Not only do we have RUSH, but we’ve had Rex King Jr., and even Rex, Sr., come and help us out as well. I thought my son was pretty good but putting him into good equipment justified my thought that he is a good racer.”

As for RUSH, Jason said, “It’s a good way for racers to compete for decent money. Racing costs a lot, but it’s the least expensive, most lucrative series around. It’s the best deal unless you have unlimited funds and the competition is great.”

“The RUSH Series has given us a variety of places to race and divisions is great,” said Ben. “In the beginning, I didn’t really know what I was doing so I would go to the bottom of the track and float along and hoped that would be okay. Now I have more car control and know what line to run and the confidence to go up top to pass cars.”

Besides his win and leading the "Futures Cup" points, Easler is 5th in overall Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly Series points and in the top seven of both the Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" and Hovis Touring Series points. He’s run a number of races at tracks like Tyler County, PPMS, Raceway 7, Sharon, and Lernerville. “The more tracks you hit, the better and quicker you learn,” said Jason.

Cole Edwards from Kennerdell, Pa. is in his first season of racing a RUSH Sportsman Modified. Prior to joining RUSH, Edwards raced a go-kart for three years. Cole won Flat Run Speedway's Outlaw Kart Championship. His father Jason finances the car, but Cole helps out when he can by giving his earnings from such jobs as grass cutting, power washing homes and monies he received from Christmas and Birthdays.

“He lives and breathes racing,” Jason said of his son. “The whole family does.” Now beginning in 8th grade 13 year old Cole Edwards has already begun to learn a lot about his car and the tracks he competes at. “Hopefully I become more competitive,” Edwards said. “I really like the competition in the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds! There are a lot of good drivers that I get a chance to race against each week as well as learn from each week as well.”

Sixteen-year-old Lucas Canon of Sharpsville, Pa. is also in his first season in the RUSH Sportsman Modified division, but got a late start not making his debut until July 24. Canon has been racing mainly at Sharon with two appearances at Raceway 7.

Prior to this season, Lucas raced Go-Karts, winning two titles, one at Slippery Rock and the other at Good Hope in the Junior Clone and the Junior Predator Divisions. Lucas, who will be a sophomore at Sharpsville High School, works at Zero Error Racing where he machines parts for racecars.

His dad, Jim, raced Big-Blocks Modifieds and E-Mods from 1992 through 2007. He along with Lucas’s mom Michele, provide the financial support for their son. Jim also serves as Lucas’s crew chief, while Michelle provides all the moral support for Lucas. His sister, Muncie, helps with the tires and cleans the car, while his grandfather, Howard is part of his crew as well.

“I’ve always wanted to race a Modified,” said Lucas. “I like the RUSH series because it’s more affordable. RUSH is always on top of things, which makes things run smooth when we are at the track.”

“A lot of people I spoke with feel like this division is a real good deal for us and it’s affordable with the crate motor,” added Jim.

At 17 years of age, Cameron McFadden joined the Sportsman Modified Division this year as well. He will be a senior this coming fall at Northwestern High School. Like Edwards and Canon, Cameron raced Go-Karts since he was nine. During that stretch, he won seven features at Slippery Rock.

McFadden comes from a racing family as his stepfather, Wendell Pinckney and his stepbrother, William, have both raced a RUSH Late Model. Both Wendell and Cameron’s mom, Charlene, will provides the financial, moral, and race day support for their son. When they’re at the race track, Wendell is the crew chief and Charlene is part of the pit crew as well.

“I used to go to Sharon and Raceway 7 and I was intrigued by the Modified,” said Cameron, who lives in Albion, Pa. “My goal is to race and improve and eventually get into a Big-Block Modified.”

Said his mom, Charlene, “It’s been a learning experience for him. We’ve stressed seat time with him and how positive it is to finish races and get that experience under his belt no matter where he finishes.”

As for the Futures Cup, Charlene added, “We’re pleased with it. I like the fact that they are doing this for the young kids which helps them get the recognition that gives them the incentive to want to continue racing.”

Cameron’s racecar was built by his step dad from two other racecars. Wendell, who has spent 25 years in racing, also serves as Cameron’s crew chief. “He does everything with the race car,” said Cameron.

Dalton Gabriel of Ellwood City, Pa. is 15 years old. He currently competes in the RUSH Sportsman Modified division as well and is part of the "Futures Cup". Prior to the Modified, Dalton raced a Go-Kart when he was eight years old.

“It’s a good series,” said his dad Todd, regarding the RUSH Series. “She (Vicki) does a lot for the drivers with the manufacturers night and the points fund. It’s nice we can go to different tracks and it is cost-effective.”

“I like it (RUSH) because of the points fund and I like how they tech and have all the rules,” added Dalton. It’s more on the driver with everything else being equal. I just go out and try to pass as many cars as I can.”

“He’s getting more consistent and confident,” Todd said of Dalton. “He does all his own maintenance and the tires and I do the technical side. It’s only me, my wife (Jessica), and Dalton involved with the program.

“It’s been pretty good,” Dalton said of his 2021 season. “A few up and downs, but I’m getting better. I just want to be able to finish races.”

Nineteen-year-old, Jacob Rutana of Poland, Ohio, has split time in the racecar with this older brother, Doug (23) at Raceway 7 and Sharon; however, that has changed as the Rutanas recently purchased a second car for Doug.

For the last 12 years, David Rutana has operated Goodhope Speedway, a Kart track located in New Springfield, Ohio. The RUSH Karts are run at Good Hope as well. David, who also owns GSI Transportation Services, likes what he sees of RUSH. “I do like the Series. It is well organized and they are strict with the rules. I like that because it keeps the opportunity for those who just starting or switching divisions.”

“I like how they operate their points system, the rules, and manufacturers night,” added Ben. “I would absolutely do this again next year.”

“There’s good competition in the class,” said Jacob. “It’s a good entry level division to get into. I can also race at tracks that are relatively close to home like Raceway 7, Lernerville, and Sharon. I really enjoyed this season and learned a lot. We noticed our progression from starting at Sharon to our August race at Raceway 7. I will continue to work on my driving skills.”

RUSH Sprint Car driver Brian Cressley, 16 of Corry, Pa. began his racing career in go-karts winning track championships at both Stateline and Pittsfield . He also competed in UAS and won the national title. This is the Cressleys second year competing in the RUSH Sprint Car division as he finished second in the "Futures Cup" last season to Nolan Groves. While Brian runs a Sprint, his father Jerry, still races an adult Go-Kart when he’s not travelling with his son.

“It’s been a tremendous season for us,” Jerry said. “Our goal is not necessarily to win, but to move up close to the front. We’re aiming to improve track position. There are three types of racers; one, guys who are winning and up front; two, the middle group consists of drivers who are experienced but not necessarily winning and then there’s the third; beginners which is where Brian has been for the last two seasons. We are now sneaking towards the middle group and we hope to stay there for a while.”

“I’m starting to race with the guys who are running up front,” said Brian. “It’s been a learning curve this year.”

“It’s an easy way to get into a Sprint Car because there’s no way I could even think about a 410,” Jerry said of RUSH. “It evens the playing field with the shocks, motors, tires, and fuel. We can still get an edge by setting up the car. I like the way they are promoting it and getting more tracks involved.”

“This Series is a good deal,” said Brian. "There are good guys and I like all the tracks we go to, it’s just a lot of fun and a good Sprint Car series for beginners.”

Derek Peterson, who is 17, is part of a large group of new racers in the RUSH Pro Mod division. For the past three seasons, Derek’s father Tim has owned a RUSH Pro Mod for driver Vaughn Nystrom. This season, he added a second Pro Mod to his stable and named his son Derek as the driver.

As for Derek’s racing progression, Tim said, “He’s comes a long way from the beginning of the season. It was a little scary at first but now we are getting competitive with the added seat time.”

“I’ve been pretty good for my first year,” said Derek. “I’m getting better coming into the corners and just being faster. I like it (RUSH), and there is a really nice group of racers.”

Prior to this season, Derek raced in the 4-Cylinder Kids Class. Tim is also a current racer, driving a UMP Modified. He started in 2000 with a Street Stock and did that for five years before getting into an E-Mod. The car Derek is driving this season is a 2014 Shaw that Tim used to run before he rolled it at McKean County Raceway. It was sitting there for three years before Tim decided to get it fixed and turn it over to his son.

“The Pro Mod is a good class and I would rather get him started with the Modified and not develop bad habits,” said Tim. “It’s a different style of car that I want him to learn. I think this is an awesome series. I’ve been racing other series for many years and never received anything. It’s wonderful what RUSH does for the drivers with the sponsors, the points fund, and the Manufacturers Night giveaways.”

Seventeen-year-old Ian DeGolier of Bradford, Pa. is another first year racer in the RUSH Pro Mod Series. Before the Pro Mods, Ian raced in the Mini Stock Kid Division for three years, winning the Bradford track championship twice.

“I was looking forward to this year by jumping up a class and racing at McKean, my favorite track,” Ian said.

Ian’s dad, Todd, is very supportive of the RUSH Pro Mod Series. “I think it’s a great series. I like the fact that it’s a sanctioning body that you don’t have to worry about track rules and anybody cheating. I think it’s absolutely awesome.”

Pro Mod racer Tyler Sutton is 18 years old and lives in Jamestown, New York. He’s also entering his freshman year at Penn State Behrend where he wants to major in electrical engineering. “I’m looking to go to law school and become a patent attorney,” Tyler said. “I chose a local college so that I could continue my racing career.” Tyler co-owns the car with his dad, Chris, who also serves as the crew chief.

This is Tyler’s very first year of racing. “It started off a little rough but I’m finding some consistency nearing the end of the season,” said Tyler. “We’re going in the right direction.”

As for the RUSH Series, Tyler said, “It’s been thoroughly enjoyable. Vicki (Emig) has worked with me for the last few years to get my racing program going. It’s a perfect way to get into racing and it’s affordable. You don’t have to break the bank to get into it.” Tyler plans on doing the RUSH Pro Mods full-time for the 2022 season.

David Shagla and wife, Kelli, finance the RUSH Stock Car racing career of their 16-year-old son, Mikael Beaver of Sugar Grove, Pennsylvania, Kelly’s son. Kelli actually raced a RUSH Kart last year and finished sixth in the adult points.

So far this season, Mikael has 10 wins between Stateline and Eriez Speedway along with a second and third place finish at Dog Hollow. Mikael raced the RUSH Go-Karts last year and finished 6th in points.

In late May, he won the “Salute to Indy,” a race that dates back to the 1940s, on the same half-mile clay oval.

In the last six USAC/CRA races, Roa has finished on the podium every time with two wins, three second place finishes and one third.

Henry Fourth at Stockton Dirt Track

PETERSEN MEDIA: Finishing fourth a week ago at the Johnny Key Classic, Kalib Henry and McColloch Motorsports were back in action again on Saturday night as they checked in at the Stockton Dirt Track where Henry would capture another fourth-place finish for the team.

“Our last trip to Stockton in July was rough, so to come out and have a really solid night felt good,” Kalib Henry said. “We were quick time in time trials, and had a podium run going until I made a mistake late while working through traffic.”

With Nor*Cal fires changing schedules up, Henry and McColloch Motorsports found themselves at the Stockton Dirt Track on Saturday night as the 360ci division shared the stage with the King of the West Series who was in the penultimate night of their Speedweek.

Kicking the night off on a high note, Henry timed the McColloch RV Repair/Express Sewer and Drain/Davis Truck Painting backed No. 17 machine in fastest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Henry would continue to show speed on the 4/10 mile facility as he would finish in the third position and garner a spot in the nightly redraw. Finding himself with the three, the Mather, CA wheelman would grid the field from the second row for the feature event.

Settling into the third position as the race came to life, Henry would find himself chasing after the likes of Shane Golobic and Dominic Scelzi as they quickly reached the back of the field.

With traffic now in play on the fast-moving feature event, Henry would soon feel pressure from Michael Faccinto. In the closing laps, a slight bobble in traffic would allow Faccinto to get by as Henry slipped back to fourth.

Doing all he could to get back on the podium, Henry would end his night with a fourth-place finish.

“Big thanks to Nick, Kerry, and everyone that helps us out on this No. 17 car,” Kalib Henry said. “It has been a really strong couple of weeks, and I can’t wait to get back in it again soon.”

McColloch Motorsports would like to thank McColloch’s RV Repair, Express Sewer and Drain, Davis Truck Painting, Driven Homes, Inc., ART Speed Equipment, RE Technologies, Hansen Machine, ADCO Driveline, and Gary Morgan Graphics for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 11, Wins: 0, Top-5’s: 4, Top-10’s- 6

ON TAP: McColloch Motorsports’ next event with Henry is TBD at this time.

Unlucky turn spoils Alex Pokorski’s MSA run at Beaver Dam Raceway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 31, 2021 – What started as a promising evening of Midwest Sprint Car Association action, turned in an instant for upstart second-year 360 Sprint Car competitor Alex Pokorski, resulting in a significantly damaged race car and an early end to the team’s efforts at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Saturday, Aug. 28.

Pokorski was among 32 MSA 360 Sprint Car drivers to sign in for the series’ third appearance of the 2021 season at high-banked Beaver Dam Raceway third-mile clay oval.

The West Bend driver opened the evening on a strong note by ripping off the eighth-fastest lap in MSA 360 Sprint Car group qualifying with a lap of 13.057 seconds.

However, third 10-lap MSA heat was not kind to Alex and the Pokorski Motorsports team as the third-starting Pokorski lost control and flipped in turn two on the opening circuit.

Pokorski was uninjured in the incident, and he was scored seventh in the race. However, his No. 4 Peterson Septic Systems-sponsored machine suffered extensive damage, which forced the team to scratch from the remainder of the program.

“The car was a little tight for qualifying, but we were still able to put a good lap in,” Pokorski said. “In the first corner of the heat race, the car just bicycled on me and I couldn't save it. We wrecked three shocks, the rear end, torque tube, radius rods and of course both wings.”

The team was scheduled to compete in a Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car program on Friday, Aug. 27 in conjunction with the Dirt Kings Late Model Tour with Paul Pokorski behind the wheel. However, that event was cancelled due to rain.

The Pokorski Motorsports team will not compete in the fifth annual Midwest Sprint Car Association Harry Neitzel Tribute Race at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, Sept. 3.

The following night, the team is scheduled to return to action at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. during the Sheboygan County Fair for an all-Sprint Car program also featuring the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series.

Hot laps are scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m. with IRA qualifying at 5 p.m.

Sponsors and supporters for the 2021 Pokorski Motorsports team are Petersen Septic Systems, Quest Engineering Inc., Goeden Auto Body, Goodwin Racing Engines, Hopf Farms, Kettle Moraine Landscaping, Novak's Service Center, Tisler Salvage Inc., Allied Bearing Corporation, RC Custom Design and Pedal Down Promotions

Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports find top-ten in Smackdown preliminary

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (August 30, 2021) – Although forced to battle head-to-head with some of the nation’s finest non-wing aces, many of whom full-time competitors with the USAC National Sprint Cars, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports put together a respectable streak of performances during Kokomo Speedway’s annual Smackdown, highlighted with a top-ten outcome during Friday’s preliminary contest.

Westfall, driver of Ray Marshall’s “Bumblebee Express” backed by Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc., Hempy Water, and DPI Ink, finished tenth during Friday’s main event, maintaining a spot within the top-ten after starting seventh on the grid. The former BOSS champion and former BOSS Smackdown winner earned his way into the preliminary main event by way of heat race victory.

Although unable to match his top-ten performance during Saturday’s double program, one of which a make-up date for Thursday, Westfall and Ray Marshall qualified for each of the respective main events and finished 14th and 21st.

Westfall finished sixth in Saturday evening’s semi-feature to qualify for the 40-lap, $15,000-to-win Smackdown X finale; over 40 cars made the call.

“It was a solid effort by our team all week. The talent at Smackdown is second to none, so to qualify says a lot. I’m proud of what we accomplished,” Westfall said. “I can’t thank Ray Marshall and the entire Ray Marshall Motorsports team enough for their hard work and dedication. Ray gives us the opportunity to go out and do what we love every single week. We certainly wouldn’t be here without his support.”

Although Ray Marshall Motorsports has an empty slate for Labor Day weekend, a trip to Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, is on the horizon, set to join the best of USAC for a triple-header on September 10-12.

Danny Dietrich rallies big to earn All Star victory at BAPS; Four-race Labor Day weekend ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (August 30, 2021) – Not deterred by his fifth-row starting position, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich put on a show Sunday night at BAPS Motor Speedway near York Haven, Pennsylvania, and ultimately charged his way through the A-Main field to snag his second FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event victory of the 2021 season. The Johnny Mackison Clash score, earning the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native a $5,000 payday, commenced from tenth on the grid, climbing his way to a top-five spot by lap 12, all before tracking down race leader, Hunter Schuerenberg, to steal command with just two circuits remaining. Dietrich’s All Star win pushes his career total to 15; a first-ever at BAPS Motor Speedway.

In addition to his victory at BAPS Motor Speedway, Dietrich, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, No. 48 sprint car, kicked-off his recent weekend with a hard charging performance against the All Stars at Grandview Speedway on Thursday, August 26, ending the night with a rally from 15th to finish ninth.

Adding to the weekend state sheet, Dietrich finished third during Selinsgrove Speedway’s annual Jack Gunn Memorial on Saturday, August 28

“Hats off to the track prep team here tonight. This is the best this track has been in a long time…there was a top, middle, and bottom…that was a lot of fun,” Danny Dietrich said in BAPS Motor Speedway victory lane. “We needed a win pretty badly. Our schedule has been all over the place this year, so to get this win close to home makes things even more special. We’ll celebrate this one tonight and get ourselves ready for a busy weekend next weekend.”

A tentative Labor Day weekend outlook Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing includes the $6,088-to-win Todd Shaffer Tribute at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, September 3, a double at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday and Monday, September 4 and 6, and a trip to Selinsgrove Speedway for their 410 National Open on Sunday, September 5.

Zearfoss earns three consecutive top-tens in WoO starts at River Cities, I-80, and Black Hills; Washington bound

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (August 30, 2021) – In what was, perhaps, his best stretch of results since returning from Australia, Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing capped their recent road trip through the upper Midwest with a trio of top-ten outcomes, finishing no worse than eighth during visits to River Cities Speedway, I-80 Speedway, and Black Hills Speedway on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, August 25, 27, and 29, respectively.

Bumping his season’s World of Outlaws top-ten total to 18, Zearfoss finished eighth, sixth, and sixth, during the North Dakota, Nebraska, and South Dakota road trip, advancing a total of six feature positions including a three-spot bump at River Cities on Wednesday.

Although all of his weekend results were impressive in their own right, Zearfoss’ overall performance at I-80 Speedway on Friday topped the cake, kicking off the evening with the second fastest time during qualifying time trials, all before finishing third during his respective heat race.

“Things are getting good right now for our team and we have no intention of allowing this momentum to escape.

2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Fourth | 7922 points [222 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (August 30, 2021) – Ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz put together an impressive stretch of results during his recent three-race campaign, capping the North Dakota, Nebraska, and South Dakota road trip with three straight top-five finishes, one of which a victory – the 302nd of his illustrious World of Outlaws career.

Schatz’ three race stretch commenced with make-up action at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, North Dakota, on Wednesday, August 25. The nearby Fargo-native finished fourth at the River Cities short track, earning his way into the evening’s main event by way of runner-up finish during his respective heat race.

Just two nights later, Schatz was back in World of Outlaws victory lane, earning the aforementioned victory during a Friday night stop at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska. Schatz started fourth on the 30-lap, $10,000-to-win grid and was in command by lap 11, earning the point position over Jason Johnson Racing’s Carson Macedo. Impressive enough, Schatz’ margin of victory reached the three-second mark, accumulating an I-80 Speedway victory for the first time in his career.

“Starting fourth, just tried to make the bottom work from the word go,” Schatz said in I-80 Speedway victory lane. “I didn’t really know if that was going to work or not, but I stayed there and stayed there to figure out how to get it going. It worked.”

Although Schatz was unable to repeat his winning ways on Sunday during a stop at Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, South Dakota, the driver of the Tony Sewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Carquest Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Sage Fruit/Digital Ally/Advance Auto Parts/Rush Truck Centers/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car did finish second, capping what was a near-perfect evening that included the fastest time during qualifying time trials, and heat race victory, as well as a dash victory.

Up next on the schedule, Donny Schatz, Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, and the rest of the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will return to Washington for the first time since 2019, set to headline action during the inaugural Sage Fruit Skagit Nationals at Skagit Speedway on September 3-5.

POWRi National Midgets Points Battle is Heating up for The Labor Day Spectacular at Lake Ozark Speedway

Belleville, IL. (08/30/2021) With twenty-one races under the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League banner this season, the series is buckling down and getting ready for the two-day show at Lake Ozark Speedway Saturday, September 4th and Sunday, September 5th. As the season is winding down the Championship Points battle is heating up. Less than 1000 points separate the top four from each other with only eleven races left on the schedule.

A rookie and Points leader, Bryant Wiedeman sits atop the charts and leads season points heading into this weekend. Wiedeman of Colby, KS. is the driver behind the No. 01 for the Keith Kunz-Curb Agajanian Motorsports stable. Wiedeman has stayed consistent throughout the 2021 season with 11 top five finishes, and 19 top ten. He is still searching for that first win, and is looking to capitalize this weekend and stretch his points lead.

Brent Crews of Denver, NC. who is the diver behind the CBIndustries No. 86, sits only 150 points back from Wiedeman for the points battle. The 13 year old rookie has turned heads and captured three wins thus far, as well as 12 top five and 16 top ten finishes. Crews is now the youngest winner in Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget History at the young age of 13. His best finish is 6th at Lake Ozark Speedway, he will be looking to improve a few spots better this coming weekend.

Ryan Timms, another rookie and the second driver for the CBIndustries team has been one of the most talked about drivers, whether it be behind the wheel of a midget, or a Wing Sprint Car. Timms sits behind the wheel of the No. 85T and has earned himself one win, five top five and 13 top ten finishes this season with the POWRi series. Timms' win came to him at none other than Lake Ozark Speedway back in May, and he picked up a win the same weekend in his family owned 360 Wing Sprint car as well. Timms sits back only 840 points from Wiedeman in the Points Championship battle.

You can catch all Lucas Oil POWRi drivers in action for the two-day spectacular this weekend for the Twelfth Annual Lake Ozark Speedway 360 Nationals. Fans will pack the stands, as drivers and crews pack the pits to prepare for the Labor Day Race Weekend. Alongside the National Midgets, the high-flying winged racing of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour/Warrior Region, and the always entertaining Midwest Modifieds on both Saturday, September 4th and Sunday, September 5th

Schrader To Attempt Du Quoin Tripleheader This Weekend

Du Quoin is Mr. Schrader’s Neighborhood

By Jay Hardin

Track Enterprises Staff

Du Quoin, IL (August 30, 2021) - The man himself made a startling announcement in victory lane after winning the 28th Sportsman Nationals at the Illinois State Fairgrounds on August 22. Ken Schrader will be running in all three events at the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds over the Labor Day weekend. If Schrader can start the main event in the USAC Silver Crown Ted Horn 100, the ARCA Menards Southern Illinois 100 presented by Lucas Oil, and the Oldani Memorial Modified race he would be just the third driver in the last fifty years to pull off the Du Quoin “triple”.

A.J. Fike was the last driver to run all three events, doing so in 2004. Before him, it was Larry “Boom Boom” Cannon as the Oakwood, Illinois barber and politician ran the USAC Midget, Silver Crown and Stock Car events during the last weekend of the 1971 Du Quoin State Fair. The other drivers to pull off a “triple” looks like a racing hall of fame, Tony Bettenhausen (1960), Rodger Ward (1960 & 61), Len Sutton (1961), Parnelli Jones (1963), A.J. Foyt (1963 & 64) and Bobby Marshman (1964).

Du Quoin truly is Ken Schrader country. It’s the mile dirt track closest to his home of Fenton, Missouri and the one he and his father visited during the 1960’s watching drivers such as Foyt, the Unser brothers and Mario Andretti. Ken’s short track exploits around the Midwest earned him a legion of fans and they followed him to the Magic Mile at Du Quoin in 1979 when he made his USAC Stock Car debut. On August 25, 1979, Ken qualified third and was running near the front when the engine in his Ford Granada let go. He watched as Rusty Wallace led Don White, Bay Darnell and A.J. Foyt to the finish line.

Schrader ran three more stock car races under the USAC banner and then would be absent from the Southern Illinois 100 until returning twenty years later. He finished second in a 1979 USAC Midget event held on the Magic Mile and ran five USAC Silver Crown races between 1981 and 1985 with a best finish of third in 1983.

Twenty-seven years after making his stock car debut at Du Quoin Ken Schrader broke the Magic Mile victory lane barrier in a big way. He won the ARCA Southern Illinois 100 and a CARS late model race on Labor Day of 2006. He repeated as Southern Illinois 100 champion in 2007 and in 2013. Ken also found victory lane in the Oldani Memorial modified event a record seven times between 2011 and 2019. Schrader is the all-time leader in main event wins on the Du Quoin mile with 11.

ARCA car owner Andy Hillenburg confirmed after the Springfield ARCA event he would field a car for Schrader to drive in the Southern Illinois 100.

Cockrum Rides Momentum to Du Quoin

“Chief”, New Team Look for Third Ted Horn 100 Win

By Jay Hardin

Track Enterprises Staff

Du Quoin, IL (August 30, 2021)-Shane Cockrum of Benton, Illinois rocked the sixty-eight-year-old grandstand at the Du Quoin State Fair when he won the 2014 Ted Horn 100 USAC Silver Crown championship event. A second trip into the infield lake in celebration of a back-to-back win in 2015 shook the grandstand rafters even more. The Franklin County Fire Chief and second-generation race driver heads to Du Quoin on Labor Day weekend with momentum on his side in search of a third win in the holiday classic.

Cockrum rolls into southern Illinois coal country with a brand-new race car and race team for 2021. Longtime owner Dave Hardy retired after the 2019 campaign and Cockrum was able to pick up a ride last year with SET Motorsports. This year a new Maxim chassis and a new yellow, red and black paint scheme carried Cockrum and BLS Motorsports to a win at Williams Grove. Cockrum and several others went to the back of the field in Springfield’s Bettenhausen 100 on August 21 after a tire change. Much like eventual Bettenhausen winner, Cockrum bided his time coming through the field and was running a very strong third before the rain came on lap 76.

The BLS team set out to run a limited schedule in 2021 appearing only at the Silver Crown series dirt events. Unfortunately, two of the dirt events were lost, the Sumar at Terre Haute due to rain and the Hoosier Hundred at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. However, Cockrum qualified seventh at Williams Grove and led the last 28 laps for his fourth series win. At Eldora in June, Cockrum qualified twenty-first and finished twelfth at the end of 50 laps. Cockrum finished fourth at Selinsgrove after starting seventh. At Springfield the team qualified eleventh but started twenty-fifth after the tire change. As a result, Cockrum finds himself tenth in the 2021 point standings while running a limited schedule.

As son of Midwest racing legend Cliff Cockrum, much was expected of Shane when he began his racing career. He was a popular figure at local racetracks and gained experience on the Du Quoin mile racing in the Oldani Memorial modified event. Two years after making his first championship car start, he got to the front of the field during the 2013 Horn 100 only to run shy on fuel. It was a mistake that would be repeated again.

Shane led 41 miles in 2014 and backed off at the end of the Horn 100 to save fuel reaching the finish line first. In 2015 he led 33 circuits taking home his second Du Quoin trophy. A fifth, second and third Horn 100 finishes followed before a mechanical issue forced him to miss the show in 2019. COVID prevented the 2020 Horn 100 from being contested.

Shane Cockrum can join Tony Bettenhausen, A.J. Foyt, Mario Andretti, Gary Bettenhausen, Jack Hewitt and Chuck Gurney as drivers with at least three championship car wins on the Du Quoin Magic Mile. Practice for the USAC Silver Crown championship cars begins Saturday, September 4 at 5 p.m. with qualifying slated at 6:30 and the Ted Horn 100 at 8:15 p.m.

Tickets will be available on raceday or by calling the Du Quoin Fair office at 618-542-1535. Info and tickets can also be obtained by calling the Track Enterprises office at 217-764-3200.

Croft Tunes Up for Big Stretch in CA at Stockton’s Champions Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA- With a big stretch of racing coming up in Northern California, Willie Croft made the trip to the Stockton Dirt Track on Saturday night to shake off some rust after a month-long hiatus from racing.

“Racing against these guys after taking a month off is tough,” Willie Croft said. “I definitely felt like it held us back, so hopefully we and improve on it as we head to Chico, CA this weekend and get a lot of racing in.”

Despite being out of the seat for a few weeks, Croft got his night off to a great start as he timed the Holey Smokes BBQ/Rudeen/Art’s Craft Beer Palace backed No. 29 entry timed in third fastest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, the Colfax, CA driver would finish in the fifth position and would miss out on a berth into the Sunnyvalley Bacon Dash.

Gridding the field from the 12th starting position on Saturday night, Croft would find himself battling for position just inside the Top-10. As the laps clicked off, he would slip back as he battled the likes of Justin Sanders, Robbie Price, and Joel Myers, Jr.

When the checkered flag flew, Croft capped off his night with a 14th place finish, as he now turns his attention to this weekend’s Louie Vermeil Classic, and the Gold Cup Race of Champions both taking place in Chico, CA.

“Saturday night I felt really rusty, and it led to a lot of mistakes,’ Croft admitted. “With some big races coming up, I came out to run with the hopes of shaking off some of the rust, but it was definitely a challenge to try and keep pace after an extended break from racing. Thanks to my guys for their hard work, and really looking forward to a lot of seat time the next few weeks.”

Willie Croft Racing would like to thank Holey Smokes BBQ, Rudeen, Art’s Craft Beer Palace, Amerikote, ButlerBuilt , 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 in 2021.

Third at Stockton Dirt Track Highlights Three-Race KWS Run for Tanner Carrick

PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking part in three of the four King of the West events during the series’ Speedweek, a third place run at Stockton on Saturday night would highlights Carrick’s week.

“It was nice to get back in the 410ci engine and run some familiar tracks after running it in Knoxville a few weeks ago,” Tanner Carrick said. “The first two nights we had speed but no luck, and on Saturday night things finally went our way and we landed on the podium.”

Thursday night the fun kicked off with the KWS’ first visit to Merced Speedway since back in 1992. Carrick would get the night kicked off by timing the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83T machine timed in 13th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Missing the heat race inversion, the Lincoln, CA driver would work his way to a fourth-place finish in his heat and find himself in the sixth row for the 30-lap feature event.

On a track that was difficult to pass on, Carrick work jump into the 12th spot where he would run much of the first third of the race. Running in the 12th spot, Carrick would slow on the 13th lap with issues under the hood of his car, and head back to this trailer and end his night.

Friday night, Carrick and the Carrick Motorsports team made the trip to Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, CA for the second night of KWS Speedweek action.

Timing in 10th fastest in time trials, the Lincoln, CA native would, find himself on the pole of his heat race needing a win to have a shot at qualifying for the Dash. Taking care of business, Carrick would hold off Ryan Robinson to take the win, and it would indeed give him enough points earn a spot in the Dash.

Lining up fourth in the six-lap shootout, Carrick would work his way to a second-place finish and find himself on the front row of the 30-lap feature event.

When the race went green, Carrick would lead the first lap of the feature event before, Mitchell Faccinto was able to get the top spot on a lap two restart. Running in second position, contact with another driver on the 10th circuit would cause severe rear-end damage to Carrick’s machine and he would again be forced to retire early.

Saturday night would mark Carrick’s third and final race of the week as the team would be unable to compete on Sunday.

Timing in 10th fastest in time trials, Carrick would race to a second place finish in his heat race, and find himself 11th on the starting grid for the 30-lap feature event.

On a tricky Stockton Dirt Track that saw the bottom turn into the preferred groove, Carrick would do a masterful job of working his way through the fray.

Having to overcome no issues on this night, Carrick would find himself inside the Top-Five late in the race, and would crack the final spot on the podium, where he would ultimately finish, in the closing laps.

“It felt good to end our week on a high note with a lot of 410ci events coming up,” Tanner Carrick said. “Thanks to my guys for all of their hard work, hopefully we can grab a 410ci win this weekend.”

Tanner Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, Interstate Oil, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Emerald, Timberworks Construction, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 49, Wins: 6, Top 5’s: 23, Top 10’s: 30

ON TAP: Carrick return to action on Saturday and Sunday in Chico, CA with the KWS as the series competes in the famed Louie Vermeil Classic.

Sanders Nets Two Wins During KWS Speedweek

PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking the wheel of Kevin Kozlowski’s Works Limited No. 57 for KWS Speedweek, Justin Sanders and Crew Chief Paul Silva gelled well together as Sanders picked up his 18th and 19th wins of the season.

“I really have to thank Kevin Kozlowski for the opportunity to drive for him, and Paul Silva and all of the guys for their hard work each night,” Justin Sanders said. “We raced really well together, and again I am extremely thankful for the opportunity.”

Kicking the action off on Thursday night in Merced, CA, Sanders would time the Works Limited backed entry in fifth quickest in qualifying time trials. Running second in his heat race, the Aromas, CA pilot would race his way into the Dash, which he would win, and lead the field to green for the first 30-lap feature of the week.

When the race came to life, Sanders jumped out to the early lead, but would soon feel pressure from Dominic Scelzi. As the duo battled up front, Scelzi would put Sanders back to second, however a caution would fly and negate the pass and put Sanders back out front.

The duo would continue to battle hard on the small confines of the Merced Speedway, and as they battle really got dicey up front another late caution would fly and give the lead back to Sanders. In the final few stanzas, Scelzi would pressure Sanders, but on this night, Sanders would get to the finish first and pick up his first win with the Works Limited team.

Traveling to Ocean Speedway on Friday night, Sanders would have a bit off an off night at the track he has been so dominant at all year long. Timing in 15th fastest, Sanders would finish fifth in his heat and find himself back in the eighth row to start the 30-lap ‘A’ Main.

With the Ocean Speedway surface a little tough to pass on, Sanders would have some trouble working his way through traffic. Able to pick up a couple of positions, Sanders would end his night with a 12th place finish.

Saturday night saw things shift to Stockton Dirt Track, and the night would get off to a very nice start for Sanders as he timed in 7th quickest on this night. Picking up the win in his heat, Sanders advanced into the Dash and by winning that he led the field to green in the Champions Classic.

Slipping back to second when the race came to life, Sanders would not stay there for long as he would nail the bottom on the second lap and take command of the race.

Looking strong out front, Sanders would keep the likes of DJ Netto and Dominic Scelzi at bay until bad luck struck on the 10th lap where Sanders endured a flat right rear and was forced to go to the work area.

Making repairs, Sanders would showcase a very strong mount from the back of the pack as he was able to race his way back up to an 11th place finish when the race came to a close.

Sunday night’s trip to Petaluma Speedway would mark the final round of KWS Speedweek action, and it was at a track Sanders had already won at with the series back in May.

Timing in third fastest in qualifying time trials, Sanders run second in his heat race and transfer into the Sunnyvalley Bacon Dash. Able to win the Dash, Sanders would again find himself on the pole of the feature event, as he looked for his second win of the week with the KWS.

Getting out to the early lead on the Petaluma Speedway ‘Gumbo’, Sanders would open up a sizeable lead, but would see it evaporate as traffic came into play. With Colby Copeland and Dominic Scelzi both closing on him in traffic, Sanders would not flinch as he kept the Paul Silva prepared entry out front.

Giving himself some breathing room in the closing laps, Sanders would end Speedweek just as he opened it and that was in victory lane as he captured his 19th win of the 2021 season.

“Saturday night I think we had a car definitely good enough to win, and to win on Sunday was great,” Sanders said. “It is a lot of fun to race with these guys, and it was great to get a couple of wins.”

Justin and his team would like to thank 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 2021.

ON TAP: Sanders next event is TBD at this time.

Nygaard looks to extend NOSA points lead in South Dakota

By Spieker Promotions

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (August 27, 2021) – The final drive to Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA series title number 11 for Wade Nygaard and the No. 9N Auto Finance Super Center / Northland Custom Woodworking team starts this weekend in South Dakota.

The weekend was scheduled to start tonight at Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, where Nygaard finished fourth with the series during its previous visit in 2018, but rain has canceled the event.

The series will return to Casino Speedway in Watertown, SD on Saturday, where Nygaard was also the fourth place finisher in 2018.

On Sunday night, Nygaard will conclude his weekend with NOSA at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, SD.

In the past few weeks, Nygaard has scored a third place run at Buffalo River Speedway, followed up with a runner-up performance at River Cities two weeks ago.

Nygaard’s last two races were with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series at Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo on Saturday night, and at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks on Wednesday night. Nygaard finished 23rd and 17th respectively at those shows.

On Saturday at Red River Valley Speedway, a promising run in the feature was cut short on lap one when Nygaard was collected by a spinning car.

Heading into the weekend in South Dakota, Nygaard holds an 18 point lead over his teammate Brenden Mullen. One victory, 18 top fives, and 23 top tens with the series have him atop the standings.

Thanks to our great sponsors for their continued support!

A STATEMENT CONCERNING FLO RACING AT GRANDVIEW THURSDAY NIGHT

For several years, the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series at the Grandview Speedway worked successfully with Flo Racing in broadcasting many events, from the USAC Sprints & Midgets, PA Speed Week, the Modified Triple 20s in October of 2020, and previous All Star events.

To clarify, it is the All Stars that has the arrangement with Flo Racing to broadcast their portion of the show. We did reach out to Flo Racing several weeks back asking for some compensation for the modified portion of the event. Flo Racing was not engaged to have any discussion and made no offer. I was later informed the decision was, they would go dark for the modified portion of the show.

In all fairness to the modified fan base, we did announce at Grandview Speedway, on the two prior Saturday night events, that the modifieds would not be on Flo Racing, Thursday night, August 26.

This was clearly a decision by Flo Racing. After being contacted several times to at least talk, there was no interest to even discuss a workable arrangement.

As a long-time supporter of Flo Racing, this was very disappointing.

For fans that are upset or disappointed, I suggest you reach out directly to Flo Racing. Be sure you inform them how much you want to see your modifieds on these broadcasts.

Our Pennsylvania Modifieds are an asset to any racing program and should not be undervalued by Flo Racing as they were Thursday night.

Thank you

FLOWDYNAMICS RESULTS FROM CALIFORNIA RACER’S HALL OF FAME NIGHT

(Ontario, CA, August 28) Last Saturday night was a mixed bag for the Flowdynamics Racing Team at Perris Auto Speedway’s “California Racer’s Hall of Fame Night.” After having to restart at the rear two times in the 30-lap main event, Logan Williams fought his way back to a ninth-place finish. Unfortunately, teammate Matt McCarthy was knocked out of the race early on after he got tangled up in a crash that blocked the track.

At the outset of the night, Williams turned in the 11th fastest qualifying time with a lap of 16.876. McCarthy ended up 21st fast when he stopped the clocks with a time of 17.723. They followed up qualifying with appearances in separate 10-lap heat races that produced the same results as both drivers finished fifth. Williams started third in the second heat and at one point he slipped as far back as sixth. Late in the race he clawed his way back to challenge for the fourth and final transfer. He seemed faster than the fourth-place car but ran out of laps before he could secure the spot. McCarthy, a father of two who lives near the Perris track in Riverside, was slated to start his heat on the outside of the fourth row. However, when the car that was supposed to start in front of him opted to go to the back due to a mechanical issue, McCarthy started outside of row three. He stayed in sixth most of the race, but advanced to fifth on the last lap and that is where he finished. The fifth-place finishes put both in the B Main.

The B Main was a 12-lap affair, and it transferred the top 10 to the 30-lap finale later in the night. For the start, Williams, who resides in Yorba Linda, manned the inside of the second row with teammate McCarthy two rows behind. Getting into the A Main from the B proved to be no problem for either as they both stayed in transfer spots for the duration. Williams finished where he started in third. McCarthy advanced forward two positions and finished seventh.

Anticipation was high amongst the large, enthusiastic crowd when the main event rolled off the line. Williams was starting on the outside of the fifth row in the A-main with McCarthy on the outside of row 10. The race started out with a near bang when the throttle linkage on the car starting on the outside of the front row broke going into turn one on the first lap. That caused cars throughout the field to take evasive action with some of them involved in a minor skirmish. With nowhere to go and the outside blocked, Williams caught the wheels of one of the other cars and momentarily got up in the air. He limped the #5W to the work area where the Flowdynamics crew changed a flat left rear tire, gave the car the once over and sent him back out for the battle.

While he did not stop on the track, Williams’ trip to the work area meant that he had to restart at the back of the now 21-car field. The green flag flew again for a complete restart, but the race only got two laps further before a bigger incident occurred on the front straight. It started when the cars who started on the fourth row got together coming off turn four. One of the involved cars lost the left front wheel and slowed . The incident soon gathered in three more cars, making it a five-car melee. Unfortunately, it collected both Flowdynamics drivers. Williams slid sideways to a stop just past the start finish line, but McCarthy was not quite so lucky as he got upside down in his #21M. Sadly his car was damaged beyond repair and after four straight top 10 finishes including a win at Barona, he was done for the night and was saddled with a 20th place finish.

Williams' bad luck getting caught up in somebody else’s mess happened for the second time in two laps. His good luck, though, was the fact that the only damage was the right side nerf bar getting pushed into the right rear tire. The car would not move until the crew had to pull the nerf bar off the tire and push it back to the work area. Once there, they made quick repairs and had him ready for the restart.

With 28-laps to go, Williams restarted at the back of the now 18-car field. Another couple of yellow flags and only four laps in the books saw him progress up to 16th. From that point on, he put his early woes behind him and was one of the most exciting drivers on the track as he chased down and passed car after car. When the checkered flag ended the 30-lap affair, he drove back to the pits with a hard-earned 9th place finish.

The Flowdynamics team is off this weekend, but next week it will journey to Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, California for races on September 4th and 5th. That will be followed up by a race at the Petaluma Speedway on the 6th. Heading into those three races, McCarthy is 11th in the USAC/CRA championship standings and Williams is 13th.

Both drivers will have shirts available all three nights of the trip to Northern California.

McCarthy and Williams would like to thank the following sponsors for making the 2021 season possible. Flowdynamics Inc., JFK Design Build, Drink-Pac, Preferred Insulation, DRC Chassis, Kistler Racing and Benic Enterprises.

If you or your company would like to join forces with Flowdynamics Racing, phone John McCarthy at (909) 930-5522 or Email mailto:john@flodyinc.com.

BUD WATSON GOES BACK-TO-BACK AT RACEWAY 7 IN PACE RUSH LATE MODELS WHILE WEEKLY SPECIALS GO TO PAUL GRIGSBY & JOE MARTIN; JUSTIN SHEA REMAINS HOT IN PPMS RUSH MODS; GALE RUTH JR SWEEPS DOG HOLLOW RUSH SPRINT EVENTS

 By Marcie Barlow

(August 27, 2021) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Pulaski, PA)... As the month of August continues race fans were treated to another weekend of exciting Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC action. The RUSH Late Models, RUSH Sprint Cars, RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, RUSH Pro Mods, RUSH Stock Cars, and RUSH Karting Series were able to complete events during the hot and humid weekend. Paul Grigsby and Joe Martin won $1,000 RUSH Late Model Weekly Series special events. Gale Ruth Jr. continues to be impressive in Sprint car action as he swept the Dog Hollow Speedway events. Justin Shea remained hot at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway in the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds.

The Pace Performance RUSH Late Model made a special appearance at Ransomville Speedway on Friday night for the second time this season. Steve Dixon and Austin Hauser led the field to the green with Dixon taking the lead. Jon Rivers took the second spot and Paul Grigsby followed in third. By lap five, Grigsby got by Rivers and was battling Dixon for the lead. Two mid-race cautions would slow the field, but Dixon was able to fend off the challenges and maintain the lead. With two laps remaining, Dixon hit the turn two wall causing the final caution of the event. Grigsby then held off the challenges of David Pangrazio to score the $1,000 victory- his second overall of 2021. Rivers, T.J. Downs and Austin Hauser rounded out the top five.

The RUSH Late Models were added to Friday night's Dog Hollow Speedway card earlier in the week. Joe Martin took command as the green flag waved and appeared to be on his way to the win as Michael Duritsky, Jr. methodically worked his way through the field. The duo of Martin and Duritsky battled for the top spot until a lap 10 caution slowed the field. Their battle continued when the action resumed with Mike Laughard joining in the fight. On lap 14, Laughard got sideways while battling Duritsky for second. Duritsky had nowhere to go and got into Laughard causing a caution. Laughard went to the back of the field and Duritsky set his sights on Martin when the action resumed. Duritsky wrestled the lead away from Martin on the restart but pitted two laps later with a flat tire. Martin went on to lead the final laps and score his fifth victory of the season at Dog Hollow- this one worth $1,000. Laughard worked his way back through the field to finish second in his season debut with Duritsky getting third. Justin Kann and Doug Glessner completed the top five.

The lone Pace Performance RUSH Sprint Car event this week took place at Dog Hollow Speedway. It was the second and final appearance of the season at the Northern Cambria, Pa. oval. Ryan Fraley, who was looking for his first career win in the division, led the first 13 circuits before Gale Ruth, Jr. took command. Ruth led the remaining seven laps to score the $800 victory, which was his second of the season at the oval. The victory also gave Ruth a two-point lead in the 2021 Series points battle. Chad Ruhlman got by Fraley with two laps to go to come home second. Fraley, Rod George and Tyler Newhart completed the top five.

The Pace RUSH Stock Cars were the third RUSH division in competition on Friday night at Dog Hollow. Jeremy Zufall continued his winning ways at Dog Hollow with his seventh win and has now won the last six he's competed in. Zufall also has a win this year at Eriez. Tim Laughard made his second straight start and came home in the runner-up spot once again. Bob Torquato was third.

Pace Performance RUSH Late Model action at Raceway 7 on Friday night saw Bud Watson lead the field to the green. With Watson out front, Breyton Santee and Cory Sines put on an excellent battle for the second spot until Sines hit a yuke tire and retired from the event. Santee used the top of the track to overtake Watson for the lead several times as the laps went by, but Watson turned back the challenges and went on to score his second consecutive victory at the speedway! Chad Sines got by Santee on the final lap to bring home the second spot. Santee, Joe Long and Jim Rasey followed.

Steve LeBarron led the entire distance of the 20 lap RUSH Late Model feature at The Hill Speedway Friday evening to score his third victory of the season at the Monroeton, Pa. facility. Jared Keeney stayed close to LaBarron but had to settle for the runner-up position with Brad Smith, Darin Hortin and Joe Lane following.

RUSH Late Model action at Fulton Speedway on Saturday night saw Max Hill lead the first six circuits before Chad Homan took over. Homan went on to score the win by 7.437 seconds over Bret Belden. The win was Homan’s eighth victory at the speedway and his 12th overall on the RUSH circuit this year. Harry Halliday, Kevan Cook and Sean Beardsley finished third, fourth and fifth respectively.

Bill Holmes continued his winning ways in Pace Performance RUSH Late Model action Saturday at Genesee Speedway. The caution-free event saw Holmes take the lead from Austin Hauser on lap five and never look back. For Holmes it was his sixth victory of the year at the Batavia, NY track, which has him leading the $1,000 "Track Pack" points. Sixth place starter Doug Ricotta came home in the runner-up position with Dusty Waters, last week’s winner Jimmy Johnson and Hauser rounding out the top five.

Pace Performance RUSH Late Model Weekly Series action at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway saw Ben Policz withstand the challenges of Daryl Charlier and lead the 20 lap main event wire-to-wire. It was Policz’s second win of the season at the Imperial, Pa. oval. Charlier, Cole Petrelle, Tim Shaffer and Bill Kessler completed the top five.

Kyle Hardy survived a late race scare on Saturday night to remain undefeated in the RUSH Late Models at Winchester Speedway. Hardy took the top spot from Scott Sweeney Jr. and opened up a half track lead when slower cars spun just in front of him. Hardy was able to avoid the wreck and maintain the lead to score his sixth victory of 2021 in six tries at the Virginia oval! Levi Crowl finished in second with Sweeney, Jr. in third, Ben Scott in fourth and Timmy Booth in fifth. A strong field of 23 cars were on hand.

Heavy late afternoon and early evening rain tried to put a damper on the final night of weekly action at New York’s Stateline Speedway on Saturday, but the track crew didn't throw in the towel and was able to complete the show. Steve Dixon and Jason Genco traded the top spot several times over the first three laps. As lap four was completed veteran Scott Gurdak muscled his way around Genco and took command. Gurdak weathered several more cautions and held on to score the win and the 2021 track title at the speedway. Genco came home in second with David Parker in third. Dixon and Matthew Sipes completed the top five. Stateline has averaged 24 cars per night in 2021!

RUSH Pro Mod action at Stateline saw Greg Johnson lead the way for the first six circuits as he battled with Cody Stronghart and Chad Ramsey. By lap six Stronghart took the top spot from Johnson. On lap eight, eighth place starter Al Brewer had moved up to third while Johnson maintained the lead. Brewer found the hole he needed to take over the lead on the 11th circuit. Brewer went on to score his second Stateline win of the season and fourth overall, which came over Johnson, Ramsey, Michael Eschrich and 13th place starter Scott Gurdak.

Sunday evening racing action saw Jeremy Wonderling claim his fifth Pace Performance RUSH Late Model victory in six tried at Bradford! Steve Dixon, Dusty Waters, Chuck LaFleur and Jason Dobson followed. In RUSH Pro Mod action “Double Duty” Steve Dixon scored his second consecutive and sixth of the year in the Pro Mods at Bradford. CJ Irons, Al Brewer, Mike Eschrich and Duane Powers completed the top five.

The Pace Performance RUSH Sportsman Modifieds were in action at both Raceway 7 and Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway this past weekend. Friday night’s action saw Tony Tatgenhorst, Kyle Martell, Rob Kristyak and Chas Wolbert swap the top spots until Martell was collected in a lap seven accident. Wolbert led the remaining laps to score his third win in five tries during 2021 at the Conneaut, Ohio oval. Tatgenhorst claimed second in his Raceway 7 season debut with Kristyak finishing third. Brandon Ritchey and Ben Easler rounded out the top five. Wolbert's victory ascended him into the lead of the "Route 7 Rumble" Series standings by just one over Kole Holden and five up on Ritchey, who claimed the Raceway 7 track championship.

Saturday evening the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds competed at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. The 15-lap main event on the "Monster Half-Mile" went caution free and saw third place starter Justin Shea pick up his third win of the season, which have all come at PPMS. Tatgenhorst tallied his second runner-up finish of the weekend. J.C. Boyer, Jacob Jordan and Chelsie Kriegisch completed the top five.

RUSH Pro Mod action at McKean County Raceway part of the McKean County Fair was scheduled for Thursday night, but got postponed to Friday night due to saturated grounds from overnight rain. Preliminary action was completed on Friday night, but rain washed out the feature and postponed that to Thursday, September 30 as part of the "Fall Classic".

In RUSH Karting Series action at Stateline, winners were Emmie Bush (Amateur), Ryan Chase (JR-1), Julian Hultin (JR-2), and Jill Rickard (Adult).

Henderson and Mike Sandvig Racing Heading Into Two-Race Weekend With Championships on the Mind

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Aug. 27, 2021) - Justin Henderson and car owner Mike Sandvig entered the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event at Huset's Speedway on Sunday with high expectations.

Unfortunately, a mechanical problem thwarted their effort to win a fifth feature of the season at the oval and Henderson ended the Pioneer Seeds Bin Buster Bash with a disappointing DNF.

"I was going around the outside of a guy and got into the wall and broke a shock and the Jacob's Ladder," he said. "The car just wasn't the same after that. I can't say for sure how the night would have gone, but it's tough when you don't even really get a chance to find out."

With 37 cars in attendance, Henderson kicked off the night by qualifying 16 th quickest. He then finished where he started - fourth - in a heat race to lock directly into the 16th starting position in the A Main.

"I felt decent early in the night, but for whatever reason the car just never felt alive all night," he said. "We were just kind of driving around and couldn't seem to find speed to pass guys with how the track was."

Henderson fell to 20th on the grid after the incident with the wall and he stayed steady despite the damage caused. When a mid-race caution presented itself, Henderson came to the pit area with hopes of fixing the problems, but the team deemed the damage too substantial and he retired for the night.

"I pulled in to try and repair the car and the guys told me we were done," he said. "It would've been nice to see how things went in the feature, but I really only got a half a lap before we broke the right side off it."

Henderson and Sandvig turn their attention to weekly competition this weekend. They'll compete on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, for the track's championship finale and on Sunday they'll join the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association at Huset's Speedway.

Henderson enters the event at Knoxville Raceway currently second in the standings, trailing by only 78 markers. He currently sits atop the standings at Huset's Speedway with a 16-point advantage with less than a month remaining on the schedule.

"I feel really good about the Huset's championship, but the Knoxville championship isn't out of the question by any means," Henderson said. "If we get a couple nights back from early in the year, we've got a decent sized lead at Knoxville. Seventy eight points seems like an uphill climb, but I still have confidence in our program and we're going to give it our best shot."

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 22 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 16; Heat race: 4 (4); Feature: DNF (16).

SEASON STATS -

38 races, 6 wins, 15 top fives, 20 top 10s, 26 top 15s, 33 top 20s

Fans and Cars Return to Du Quoin Mile After Year’s Absence

USAC, ARCA, UMP and Race Fans Weather COVID Interruption

By Jay Hardin

Track Enterprises Staff

Du Quoin, Il (August 25, 2021)-After a 2020 motorsports calendar re-arranged and disrupted by COVID, including the cancelation of all events at the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds, fairgoers, race fans participants and officials are all excited to get back to the beautiful Southern Illinois Magic Mile for the traditional Labor Day weekend of auto racing. On Saturday night, September 4, the big cars of the USAC Silver Crown Series return for the Ted Horn 100 along with heat races for the DIRTcar Modifieds. On Sunday night, September 5, the ARCA Menards Series comes to Du Quoin for the Southern Illinois 100 presented by Lucas Oil, along with the 20-mile main for the Modifieds.

Auto racing as part of the entertainment lineup goes back to the very first Du Quoin State Fair held in 1923. Racing was held on the half mile track that still exists near the main entrance of the fairgrounds just off Route 51. Fair owner Bill Hayes envisioned a larger venue which could host concerts, cars and horses and plans were made just before World War II to build a one-mile track east of the half mile. Much like the 2020 Du Quoin State Fair, those plans were placed on hold by a worldwide crisis event, World War II. When materials again became available, construction continued the current Magic Mile and the track was finished in 1946.

Big Cars Continue Resurgence

Championship dirt car racing came to the small, southern Illinois coal town in September of 1948 for the first of two scheduled American Automobile Association (AAA) championship trail events. Lee Wallard won the 100-mile race in September and Johnnie Parsons won the October race. The race in October was marred by the loss of national champion Ted Horn in an early race accident at the north end of the track. Shortly after the 100-mile national championship race was christened the “Ted Horn Memorial 100”.

When the uprights were separated from the national championship trail in 1971 George Snider won the first ever USAC Silver Crown race held on the Magic Mile. This year two-time Ted Horn 100 winner (2010, 2017) Kody Swanson leads a large contingent of teams and drivers into the tenth race on the 2021 USAC Silver Crown schedule. Swanson wasn’t scheduled to compete for an unprecedented sixth national championship but wins and top finishes in the pavement races plus a win in the Bettenhausen 100 at Springfield give Swanson a 61-marker lead over rookie Logan Seavey and a 100-point lead over 2017 series champ Justin Grant.

Seavey and fellow rookie Jake Swanson let the early part of the rain shortened Bettenhausen before Swanson took over on lap 61. They are expected to compete at Du Quoin as is two-time Horn 100 winner Chris Windom (2016 & 18) and local favorite Shane Cockrum. Cockrum was third at Springfield and is also a two-time winner (2014 & 15) of the Ted Horn 100. Thirty-eight cars made the trek to Springfield on August 21 for the first mile dirt race of the season.

Southern Illinois 100 Features Teenagers v. Veterans

It’s doubtful anyone would believe that the contenders for the ARCA Menards Series championship heading to Du Quoin would be an 18-year-old grandson of an NFL Hall of Fame football coach and a 19 year old Georgian who hardly ran in the 2020 ARCA Series. However, that is exactly the case as the ARCA series prepares for the Southern Illinois 100 at the Du Quoin State Fair. Corey Heim of Marietta, Georgia won his first ever ARCA dirt race at Springfield and closed the gap on point leader Ty Gibbs to just one prior to the Sprecher 150 on August 29 at Milwaukee. Gibbs, the grandson of former Washington coach turned NASCAR team owner Joe Gibbs, had eight wins going into Springfield and finished second to Heim who dominated the Allen Crowe 100. The win at Springfield was Heim’s sixth on the season and at press time the two teenagers had won all but one race on the ARCA Menards schedule.

New York’s Christian Eckes wheeled a Venturini Motorsports Toyota to Du Quoin’s victory lane in 2019, leading 91 laps in the process. He also set a record as the youngest stock car winner in Du Quoin history at just a few months past his 18th birthday. It’s a record that could be tested on Sunday September 5.

Schrader’s Dominance of Oldani Could Continue

Fenton, Missouri’s Ken Schrader made his big-time auto racing debut in August of 1979 at the mile closest to his home. Ken qualified third for the 1979 USAC Stock Car event before bowing out with mechanical problems. It took another 27 years before he was able to conquer the Magic Mile landing in victory lane after the 2006 ARCA event and winning a CARS late model event that day as well. Since then, he has become the all-time leader in main event wins at Du Quoin with eleven, coming in three different types of racing machines.

Schrader has been dominant in the Bill Oldani Memorial UMP Modified race winning seven times between 2011 and 2019 and he may have captured another event had the 2012 race not been lost to rain. Schrader returns for a try at win number 8.

The action begins Saturday night, September 4, with practice for the USAC Silver Crown cars at 5 p.m. and the Ted Horn 100 taking the green at approximately 8:15. Practice for the ARCA Menards 100 gets underway at 4:15 p.m. Sunday September 5 with the green flag coming down at around 8:05. Heat races for the Oldani Memorial take place Saturday night with the 20-mile UMP Modified main on Sunday prior to the ARCA event.

Tickets will be available on raceday or by calling the Du Quoin Fair office at 618-542-1535. Info and tickets can also be obtained by calling the Track Enterprises office at 217-764-3200.

Applefest is Back at Tri-City Raceway Park
(August 25, 2021): With the regular season complete at Tri-City Raceway Park, attention now turns to the post-season special events. And, track owner Merle Black has announced an addition to the docket. “Tri-City has a proud history of hosting a big season finale for the Pro Stock division and we are pleased to announce the return of Applefest on Sunday, September 19.”
“The 2021 edition of Applefest will be a fifty lapper,” Black added. “We took the advice of the competitors and shortened the race.” Previous Applefest classics were one hundred lap affairs and, all too often, the events were marked by attrition rather than good, hard racing. “We think that the shorter race will give the fans more exciting wheel to wheel action throughout the contest.”
Like all Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stock events held at Tri-City Raceway Park in 2021, the Applefest will be sanctioned by the Penn-Ohio Pro Stock Championship. However, the race will not award series points to the racers.
“We will use time trials for the Pro Stocks,” Black explained. “That will help to make the event special.” Other details for the format are still in the works.
The purse structure is also still in the planning stages, as Black and his staff are busy working on sponsors for the program. Interested individuals and businesses can call the track office to discuss the opportunities to be associated with this important event.
The 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks will be part of Applefest. The Mini Stocks will race for a winner’s share of $500, which is likely to attract many of the region’s best racers in the class.
Other divisions are under consideration for inclusion in Applefest and will be announced in the near future.
The first of the post-season special events will be held this Saturday, August 28. The Renegade Monster Trucks will roll into Tri-City Raceway Park. “This is a great spectacle for kids of all ages,” Black said.
Then, over Labor Day weekend, the action will return to the big half-mile oval. On September 3, 4, and 5, eight divisions will be in action. The weekend will kick off with an open practice session for all classes. The Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprints will be in action on Saturday and Sunday, with extra money on the line. The Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds will race on Saturday night and then, Sunday, they will take on the Big Block Modifieds of the BRP Modified Tour on Sunday. The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks will get two opportunities to get ready for Applefest, as will the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. The RUSH Sprints will also race both nights under the twin banners of Gary Glass Automotive and Washington House. The Junior Sprints and the Vintage Modifieds will also be on the card both nights. A big bonfire and music will close out the holiday festivities on Sunday after the final checkered flag falls.
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.

 

BALOG SCORES IRA SPRINTS “CORN FEST” PODIUM; FOUR ASCoC vs. PA POSSE RACES ON DECK

Hartland, Wisconsin (August 26th, 2021) – Bill Balog and B Squared Motorsports entered the brief FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 weekend in Michigan & Ohio with a helping of cheddar and corn on the side. The team opted to run with the ASCoC Friday (MI) and Saturday (OH) and then make the overnight tow back to Wisconsin for the IRA Sprints Angell Park's “Corn Fest” in an effort to sweep the season at the historic oval.

The Anderson’s Maple Syrup #17B kicked off their visit to I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, MI transferring to the ninth starting spot in the A-Main event, directly from their heatrace. For the second time this year at I-96 Speedway, Bill and the team were forced to retire after hitting the wall while battling for the seventh position with Hunter Schuerenberg.

“It’s tough to have a fast car and get knocked out of the feature early for the second time this year. The car felt good and we had the speed for a good night again, we just need to find some luck at this place”. said Balog, driver of the CK Contractors LLC, Buesser Concrete, Wisecup Siding, Howard Law, Wayne Corini, CPA, Lein Acres, Turn It Up Media sprint car.

The B Squared Motorsports team prepared the backup car for their first laps at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio. Despite experiencing some good sensations in the car and having a fast and well prepared track, the team struggled to find the necessary speed and ultimately was able to move up from their 16th starting position to finish the 25 lap A-Main in 13th position.

Motivated to race in front of their hometown fans for their final IRA Outlaw Sprint Series race of the season, the team hit the road for the overnight tow intent on having a successful end to their weekend. Bill Balog started the night right where he left off the last time, setting quick time in Osborn and Son Trucking Qualifications and securing a fourth place starting position in his heat race. Converting the heat race into the evening Dash redraw, Bill locked down the seventh place starting position in the feature event, finishing fourth in the Dash. The field turned fast laps on a narrow and hard to pass racing surface before the first caution finally fell on lap 23, with another yellow with four laps remaining in the 30 lap A-main event. On the final restart Bill was able to move into third position and secure a podium finish for the Rocky Rococo's Pizza, Forest Brook Farms LLC/Forest Brook Trucking LLC, Indian Motorcycle of Metro Milwaukee, Utica Bar, Mr. Jim's Racing, Sam I Am, DSG supported sprint car.

“After the overnight tow and working with the backup car we weren’t great in hot laps. But we were able to make adjustments before qualifying and find the speed we needed. Angell Park had a mind of its own tonight, it was difficult to pass and was rough in three & four so it was a challenge. I gotta thank Dennis and Austin for a lot of hard work and Jimmy Brandford for his support this weekend. I’m glad we were able to get on the podium for those guys and our Wisconsin fans” said Balog, the 10x IRA Sprint Champ.

Blake Carrick Ready for KWS Speedweek Following 7th Place Finish in Chico, CA

PETERSEN MEDIA: Blake Carrick returned to racing action on Friday night in Chico, CA after taking a couple of weeks off. Finishing seventh during the Tyler Wolf Memorial, Carrick now readies himself for King of the West Speedweek which kicks off tonight in Merced, CA.

“After a couple weeks away, it was great to back to racing on Friday night,” Blake Carrick said. “I am looking forward to getting the 410ci engine in, and running 4 King of the West races this week.”

Friday night in Chico, CA the SCCT format was in use and the Lincoln, CA driver would time the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 38B entry in third fastest in his qualifying group.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Carrick would settle into the second position as the field settled into green flag action. Finishing second, Carrick would miss out on the redraw by just one position and would line up 9th in the 25-lap Tyler Wolf Memorial feature event.

When the feature event went green, Carrick would spin his tires in some grease that was on the speedway and would fall back to 12th during the race’s opening circuit.

As the race settled into a bit of an extended green-flag run, Carrick would start to make up for the early lap bobble as he began working his way back forward inside the Top-10.

Continuing to race his way forward, Carrick would cap his Wolf Memorial off with a seventh-place finish, as he now readies for a four-night speedweek with the King of the West Series.

“We had a good car on Friday night, and like I said, it felt good to get back to racing action,” Carrick said. “Excited for four nights of 410ci action this week.

Blake Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, Interstate Oil, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Emerald, Timberworks Construction, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support

Dominic Scelzi Earns Runner-Up Result During Johnny Key Classic

Inside Line Promotions - WATSONVILLE, Calif. (Aug. 25, 2021) - Dominic Scelzi picked up a pair of top-10 finishes last weekend during the Johnny Key Classic at Ocean Speedway.

Scelzi qualified 19th quickest during the opener on Friday before he finished where he started - fifth - in a heat race to narrowly miss locking into the main event. A runner-up result in the B Main transferred him toward the back of the A Main.

"We went out pretty early in qualifying and the track was really greasy," he said. "I felt like we put down a good lap for when we went out, but the track got way faster. In the heat race I got under the car in front of me, but we hit grease and I wasn't able to get by the car so we ran fifth. Then we moved forward and did what we needed to do in the B Main to transfer into the feature."

Scelzi drove into the top 10 within the first 10 laps and gained two more positions before the checkered flag was waved. His run from 18th to eighth place earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

"We just missed the issues," he said. "We had a good race car and got as high as seventh. A car in front of me bounced and I had to get off the gas or else I would have hit them, which allowed someone by. Just being able to finish was an accomplishment with the amount of cars that were tore up. All in all I was happy with our performance."

Scelzi continued to move forward on Saturday as the track welcomed the Sprint Car Challenge Tour for the weekend finale. Scelzi timed in third quickest in his group and won a heat race to advance into the dash. A second-place result lined him up on the outside of the front row for the A Main.

"We qualified a lot better on Saturday and I felt like we raced really good," he said. "At the drop of the green the outside wasn't the place to start. We fell to third right away, but we got back to second and worked on the leader. We had a really good restart and slid him into turn one, but I wasn't able to clear him and he powered around me. We ran him back down. At that time the track started laying rubber. I felt we had a chance to do something in traffic, but the yellow flag came out again with a few laps remaining. I got a really good restart, but just wasn't able to do anything. To run second at the Johnny Key Classic is nothing to be upset about."

Scelzi's second-place effort was his 32nd top five of the season.

A big four-race weekend with the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series is on tap, running Thursday at Merced Speedway in Merced, Calif.; Friday at Ocean Speedway; Saturday at Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, Calif.; and Sunday at Petaluma Speedway in Petaluma, Calif. Scelzi enters the weekend with a six-point lead in the championship standings.

"I think this is going to be the tell-tale," Scelzi said. "These four races are going to set someone up to win the championship or to lose it. The next six races, the speedweek this weekend and the following weekend in Chico, will set the tone for who is going to be on top of the championship."

Aug. 20 - Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif. - Qualifying: 19; Heat race: 5 (5); B Main: 2 (3); Feature: 8 (18).

EDDIE TAFOYA JR. BACK AT KOKOMO FOR THE 10TH ANNUAL SMACKDOWN

(Chino Hills, CA, August 24, 2021) Southern California’s Eddie Tafoya Jr. will be back in action at “Indiana’s Baddest Bullring,” the Kokomo Speedway, four straight night’s beginning on Wednesday, August 25th. Wednesday’s race will be the “Bob Darland Memorial” which will be followed by three nights of action in the “Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts Sprint Car Smackdown X.”

 

The trip will be the third visit to Indiana for the Chino Hills, California based driver in 2021. His first sojourn to the Midwest this year came in April. He returned last month to contest the tough Indiana Sprint Week and competed seven times on seven different tracks in just eight days. Included in that grinding schedule was the ISW opener at Kokomo on July 24th. On that night, the handsome driver was 13th fastest qualifier in his 27-car flight and was 27th fastest overall in the 54-car field. He later finished 10th in the B Main.

Last season, Tafoya took on the prestigious “Smackdown” for the first time in his young career. The 2019 USAC/CRA and USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series Rookie of the Year, ran the alphabet making a different main every night. He placed 14th in the C Main at the opener. On night number two, he contested the B Main and came home 12th. He saved the best for last and made the A Main and finished 19th in the finale against one of the toughest non wing sprint car fields assembled anywhere in 2021.

This trip to Indiana is not all about being on the track for Tafoya. When he was last in the “Hoosier State” in July, he got clobbered by another car in the A Main at the Terre Haute Action Track. The crash came after Tafoya had started 22nd in the race and had worked his way up to 15th. Unfortunately, the collision destroyed the car. So, he flew to Indiana on Sunday and for the second time this year, he began building a brand-new car at DRC Chassis.

For fans wishing to attend the races at Kokomo in person, the track is located at 2455 North Davis Road, Kokomo, IN 46901. For ticket information the office phone number is 765-459-3877 and the track website is http://www.kokomospeedway.net/.

West Coast fans who cannot make it to Indiana to see Tafoya in action can watch it all on Flo Racing. Subscription details are available at the following link www.floracing.com.

Tafoya and the crew will have some of his great looking shirts for sale in the pits at Kokomo at every race. If you cannot make it and wish to purchase one, contact Tafoya on Facebook or Instagram.

Fans can follow Tafoya on Instagram at eddietafoya51.

Tafoya and his team would like to thank the following sponsors for being a part of the 2021 racing campaign. Specialty Fasteners, Circle Track Performance, DRC Chassis, Ryder Racing Engines, Benic Enterprises, Simpson, and Bell. If you or your company would like to become a part of the team in 2021, please give them a call or send an Email to the contact information at the top of this press release.

Austin McCarl and Country Builders Racing Join Forces for Remainder of 2021

PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking a couple months off to regroup and revaluate, Kyle Offill has made the decision to step away from racing and focus on his career. With Kyle stepping back, Country Builders Racing has made the decision to continue racing in 2021 and have made the decision to team up with Altoona, IA driver, Austin McCarl.

“I am super excited that Country Builders has made the decision to hire Austin McCarl to drive the No. 88 for the rest of the season, “Kyle Offill said. “He is like family to us, and this is a great fit. I made the decision to step away from racing to focus on my career and other aspects of life, but I am still very happy that my family has made the decision to continue racing. I’d like to thank my Mom, Dad, and Papa, for everything they have done for me over the years as well, Country Builders and all of my sponsors that have supported me and allowed me to chase my dream.”

With a lot of racing left in the Golden State in 2021, McCarl and Country Builders racing will make their debut together over the Labor Day Weekend in Chico, CA as they take part in the famed Louie Vermeil Classic.

“It is a really cool opportunity to get the drive the iconic Country Builders Racing No. 88,” Austin McCarl said. “I am really excited as this car has been a part of my family for a very long time, and it is a car that my dad has driven before. I am really appreciative for the Offill family, and I am looking forward to getting back out to CA with a great family and team to run some really cool races.”

RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR RETURNS TO SHARON SATURDAY AFTER A 5-YEAR ABSENCE FOR "BILL FORNEY MEMORIAL" FOR $3,199 TO-WIN; UMP MODS & RUSH SPRINTS RETURN; FINAL NIGHT OF POINTS FOR STOCKS & RUSH MODS

By Mike Leone

August 25, 2021


(Hartford, OH)…Sharon Speedway will honor and remember another local racing legend this Saturday night (August 28) in the inaugural "Bill Forney Memorial". The program will feature the Pace Performance RUSH Late Model Flynn's Tire/Born2Run Lubricants Touring Series racing for $3,199 to-win along with the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply UMP Modifieds, Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars, Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, and the HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. Kids power wheel races will be held at intermission. The night is sponsored by A&MP Electric and Miller Industries. It's Twin-State Auto Racing Club Night. Race time is 7 p.m.

Bill Forney, one of, if not the greatest racer to ever wheel a Late Model in the region, passed away on August 10, 2019 at the age of 92. Forney made famous the candy-striped #199 Late Model, thus the additional $199 added in Memory of Bill from Bill's children, Mike Forney and Anita Carson. The inaugural event was scheduled for last year; however, was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, and then was rained out on July 17. Since then the last five events have been completed.

Forney was a fixture at both Canfield and Sharon Speedways. Forney's racing prowess earned him the Late Model track championship at Sharon in 1964, and an unprecedented seven championships at Canfield (1959-1960, '61, '63, '65-66, '68) - a track that had a national reputation for tough as nails competition. All totaled, Forney had hundreds of feature wins, many at these two tracks. Forney was inducted into the inaugural Twin State Auto Racing Club's Hall of Fame in 2010, and is also a member of the Cloverleaf Speedway (Cleveland) Hall of Fame.

The RUSH Late Model Tour last appeared at Sharon in 2016 with Will Thomas III taking the victory. That was prior to the new red clay surface that has produced tremendous racing in recent years. The RUSH Late Models ran weekly at Sharon from 2011-2014. After a four-year hiatus, Sharon hosted a RUSH Weekly Series special last year that saw Max Blair top a 22-car field. Thomas, who has four Econo Mod wins this year, is the division's all-time winner with 13 victories and is expected to be in competition.

Virginia racer Kyle Hardy leads the RUSH Tour to Sharon with six victories including the most recent show on August 15 at Eriez Speedway as he topped a 46-car field for "Manufacturers Night". Hardy has a 77-point lead in the $12,000 to-win championship. Joe Martin, a former regular at Sharon when the division ran weekly, has worked his way up to second in points thanks to eight top six finishes in the last nine events. Defending and three-time Series champion, Jeremy Wonderling, has dropped to third in points with three wins.

Michael Duritsky, Jr. and J.J. Mazur are fourth and fifth in points in search of their first career Tour wins. 2016 RUSH Tour champion John Waters is sixth, while Bud Watson and Ryan Frazee are tied for seventh. Kyle Lukon and Logan Zarin complete the top 10. The RUSH Late Model Tour will return September 10-11 during the "Apple Festival Nationals" racing for $4,000 to-win in an event presented by Zarin Truck & Auto.

The Sharon/Canfield Speedways Drivers Reunion will be held in conjunction with the "Bill Forney Memorial". Drivers that competed on the dirt at these speedways from 1949-1973 were invited to the event free of charge and will enjoy a complimentary dinner in the pavilion between 4-6 p.m. Special thanks to Jeff Teeters, Jeff Johnson, Steve Haefke, Joe Gabrielson, John Sandquist, Jr., and Wayne Tessean for their generous contributions to cover the cost of complimentary meals for the retired drivers. The fathers of all these racers competed during this era.

Drivers/car owners that have confirmed their attendance include John Czoka, Tom Czoka, Martin Dellinger, Don Downey, Skip Evans, Mike Forney, Butch Haefke, Tim Henrich, Jeep Iacubucci , Tom Jarrett, Bobby Johnson, Tom Joyce, Dan Lewis, Sr., Terry May, Ed McGarry, Clair Mizner, Ron Novak, Jerry Postlethwait, Jerry Rydarowicz, John Sandquist, Michael Saverko, Tubby Tessean, Bob Williams, Wally Yeager, and Dave Yobe.

The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply UMP Modifieds are set for their third and final appearance of the 2021 season on Saturday night and will again be racing for $1,000 to-win. The shows scheduled for May 26 and June 19 both fell victim to rain. Back on April 24 at the season opener, Dave Hess, Jr. captured his fourth career win. Ty Rhoades charged from 13th to second at the opener then went 11th to first to score the upset win on July 31! Joel Watson, who has a pair of top eight finishes this year, has 28 victories at Sharon, which is the most amongst active racers. Sharon is part of the East Region that offers $2,000 to the champion with the top 10 receiving point fund monies, while the national UMP champion will take home $20,000.

The Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars are back for their seventh show of 2021. The fourth year division has shown growth with an average of more than 20 per show this season at Sharon. Chad Ruhlman, the division's all-time winner and two-time champion, has two victories this year at Sharon including an impressive charge from 20th on July 31! Ruhlman, a two-time Series champion, trails the $5,000 to-win RUSH Weekly Series points by just two to Gale Ruth, Jr. Ruth leads the Series with six wins around the circuit, but has never won at Sharon. RUSH's 2020 "Futures Cup" Champion, Nolan Groves, also has two wins, while 62-year-old Rod George has a victory. At the last event on August 14, seven-time "410" Sprint Car track champion, Jarod Larson, returned to victory lane for the first time since his last championship in 2006!

The Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks return and will close out their championship point season. Chris Schneider became the second repeat winner of 2021 on August 14. Schneider won the $10,000 "Steel Valley Nationals" on June 12 then two months later won the $1,000 special. The only other repeat winner is points leader Curt J. Bish, who hasn't won since May 15. Bish though leads 2018 champion, Chris McGuire, by 19 points. Coleton Longwell, who captured his first career Sharon victory on July 31, has worked his way up to third in points. 2016 and 2017 champion Paul Davis is fourth in points as he looks for his first win in more than two years. Larry Kugel is fifth.

Like the Pro Stocks, the HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds return after a week off to close out their championship point season. With his four wins and all podium finishes in eight races, Chas Wolbert has already clinched his first track championship. Tony Tatgenhorst trails by 74 points with rookie Ben Easler, Rob Kristyak, and Jacob Wolfe completing the top five. Despite only competing in four races, Garrett Krummert has a pair of victories, while Wolfe and Clayton Deems won their first career races earlier this season.

Drivers will not only be battling for Sharon points, but also the $3,500 to-win Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Weekly Series and the $1,000 to-win Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series Championship. Wolbert also leads RUSH's Weekly Series standings, but has just a one-point lead in the "Route 7 Rumble" over Kole Holden with Brandon Ritchey just five points behind the leader.

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

Amantea Produces Top Five and Hard Charger Award During USAC East Coast Race

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Aug. 25, 2021) - Joey Amantea highlighted two nights of Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars action with a fifth-place finish Friday night at Bedford Speedway.

Amantea also looked to be in line for a solid outing on Saturday at Port Royal Speedway, but a mechanical problem while staging for the feature forced him to the pits.

"Bedford was great and I honestly couldn't believe we ended up in the top five," he said. "The rest of the week was kind of a lost cause, but overall at least we got something to be happy about."

Amantea kicked off the weekend on Friday at the big oval in Bedford, Pa., where he finished where he started - sixth - in a heat race. As a result Amantea lined up for the feature in the 11th position. He was able to avoid a multiple-car wreck on the opening lap before coming home with a fifth-place finish.

The top-five outing was his third of the season with the series and earned him the Hard Charger Award. The result was even more rewarding considering it was behind the wheel of his black No. 88j that he typically uses for winged 360 sprint car competition.

"We were not really great in the heat race and managed to avoid the big one there during the A Main start," he said. "We hung around fourth for most the race and the tires kind of went away there late, but to get a top five in the black car was a relief as up to this point it's been a tough season."

Amantea headed to Port Royal Speedway on Saturday and opened the night with his American Flag flame themed sprint car on display during an autograph session as part of the track's Military Appreciation Night. He then advanced three positions in a heat race to finish fifth to earn the 13 th starting position in the A Main.

Amantea was looking forward to an opportunity to finish off the night with a rewarding effort, but track officials discovered a brake fluid leak on the car during feature pre-staging. Upon a closer look, it was discovered that the left-side rear brake chamber had snapped off the car and as a result he failed to start the A Main.

While the result was disappointing and frustrating for Amantea, he was extremely thankful that the problem was discovered prior to taking the green flag for the feature as he likely avoided a possible wreck or injury as a result of a lack of brakes.

"It was really cool to be part of the early festivities and to get to meet some fans and pay tribute to the men and woman of the military," he said. "I guess in the grand scheme of things I had someone looking out for me. If I'd have taken the green and it would have broke off heading into turn one we might not be talking about anything positive right now at all."

Next up for Amantea will be a Friday night event in winged and wingless micro sprint competition at Linda's Speedway in Jonestown, Pa. This will only be Amantea's second winged micro sprint start of the season and the first behind the wheel of his family owned car.

"This whole deal is about having fun and when you're struggling it gets easy to forget that," he said. "We're going to try some things with the micro to try and get back to being a consistent contender each night and just have some fun."

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 20 - Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pa. - Heat race: 6 (6); Feature: 5 (11).

Aug. 21 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Heat race: 5 (8); Feature: DNS (13).

Sides Heading to North Dakota, Nebraska and South Dakota This Week

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Aug. 25, 2021) - Jason Sides is racing in three different states this week during a trio of World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races.

It begins on Wednesday at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D., for the Gerdau presents the Second Leg of the Northern Tour. That event was scheduled for last Friday, but was postponed because of rain. Following the trip to North Dakota is a race on Friday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown. The week concludes on Sunday at Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, S.D., for the Rushmore Outlaw Showdown.

"It'll be a busy next few days," he said. "It's a little tough because we're going back and forth to Sioux Falls each night after the races. We're trying to get everything ready for each day. Then I'm looking forward to getting out to Skagit next week. We haven't been there for awhile and Kimball from WTS is coming out there so I'm looking forward to seeing him."

Sides raced last Saturday at Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo, N.D., where he moved forward each time he was on the track after qualifying 26 th quickest. He advanced from ninth to seventh in a heat race, from fourth to second in the Last Chance Showdown and from 20th to 17th in the A Main.

"When we hot lapped we were second quick," he said. "I think the track was good at that point. When we went out it had formed a little hole going into turn one. On the first lap I hit that and bounced and the motor stumbled. That killed our momentum. The second lap you're trying harder because of that first lap bobble and I ended up making more mistakes. We moved forward the rest of the night, but it's tough to overcome qualifying so far back."

The weekend wrapped up on Sunday at Huset's Speedway, which hosted the Pioneer Seeds Bin Buster Bash. Sides timed in 19th quickest before ending sixth in both a heat race and the Last Chance Showdown.

"I thought we were going to be good," he said. "On the start in the heat race I got tight. We ran up the track and one car got by me. We never could get back by them. The track was kind of narrow and wet from all the rain. Maybe we should have been a little freer. Then in the B Main we freed up and were decent, but trying to get under someone for the final transfer position left the top open and that's when someone got by for fifth."

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 21 - Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo, N.D. - Qualifying: 26; Heat race: 7 (9); B Main: 2 (4); Feature: 17 (20).

Aug. 22 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 19; Heat race: 6 (5); B Main: 6 (4).

Brian Brown Tackling FVP Platinum Battery Showdown Before Knoxville Season Finale This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - SEDALIA, Mo. (Aug. 25, 2021) - Brian Brown is heading to a pair of marquee races in the Midwest this weekend on the heels of his 28th top-10 finish of the season.

Aug. 22 - Missouri State Fair Speedway in Sedalia, Mo. - Heat race: 1 (4); Feature: 8 (6).

"It was good to get back to racing at the state fair on Sunday in August," Brown said. "It's always been a cool event. There was a good crowd and it was good to get back there.

"The car was good and we were able to go from fourth to win the heat. We drew the worst number available in the feature redraw so we started sixth. We got a good start on the initial start and went from sixth to the lead, but a yellow came out and they pulled that one back. We were able to get up to second and we were running second when we blew a left rear tire with about four laps to go. We didn't come back out. I think by me moving around the track when everybody was ripping around the top maybe something down low cut our tire. But we got lucky. It blew in a bad spot entering the corner and could have been worse. We were able to not crash."

UP NEXT - Friday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa

"With FVP sponsoring the race and having a bunch of customers and employees at I-80 we know how important those races are," Brown said. "It's a track where we've had a lot of success. I'm looking forward to getting there and having an opportunity to contend for a top five and hopefully a win.

"We've missed two events at Knoxville this season, but we still have potential to win the championship if we go in there and do our job and try to get all of the points. That is exciting."

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Score World of Outlaws Win at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Aug. 25, 2021) - David Gravel captured his third victory in the last five races on Sunday at Huset's Speedway, which hosted the Pioneer Seeds Bin Buster Bash.

It capped a strong weekend with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series that also included a runner-up result on Saturday during the Gerdau presents the Duel in the Dakotas at Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo, N.D.

Gravel started the weekend's action by qualifying 10th quickest at Red River Valley Speedway. A run from fourth to second place in a heat race earned a spot in the dash, which the Big Game Motorsports driver won after lining up on the outside of the front row.

"We didn't qualify where we wanted to, but when you start on the second row you have a chance of getting into the top two," he said. "Luckily we were able to do that to get into the dash. We had a good pill draw, won the dash and that set us up for a solid night."

Gravel led the opening lap of the main event before falling to second. He dropped as far back as fourth before a daring pass picked up two positions to reclaim second place in the closing laps.

"I chose the outside on the early restart and that was a mistake," he said. "The motor stumbled and once that happens the inside guy can take the shorter path around so it's a huge advantage. If I was in the inside lane maybe I could have got away with it. You live and learn.

"Late in the race I had a big run and if I followed James (McFadden) or Logan (Schuchart) into the corner I was going to make nothing of it. I ran it in there really hard and I slid up in front of those guys. I'm sure it's a move that they would have done if the roles were reversed."

Gravel was on point on Sunday at Huset's Speedway, where he set quick time during qualifying, placed second in a heat race and advanced from sixth to fourth in the dash. That lined him up on the outside of the second row for the 35-lap main event.

"Huset's is a place that is really tight with tight corners and a small track," he said. "It had rained hard all day. Getting track position was huge so to set quick time was great. Controlling your own destiny makes life so much easier. We were able to get into the dash. We drew the six. I hoped to gain two spots to get to fourth to have a nice shot at things and we were able to do that."

Gravel maintained the first half of the feature. He advanced into the runner-up position and tracked down the leader in traffic before taking over the top spot on Lap 24. A pair of late-race cautions, including one setting up a green-white-checkered finish, bunched the field together. However, Gravel easily pulled away in clean air to score his third triumph of the season at Huset's Speedway.

"We rode around in fourth early and then the leader got into a lapped car," he said. "We got by Wayne (Johnson) for second. Then the leader got into the wall and got over the cushion. We were able to take advantage. I think our car was good the whole feature and I was able to limit mistakes."

A race last Friday at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D., was postponed to this Wednesday because of wet weather. Additional World of Outlaws races this week include Friday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown and Sunday at Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, S.D., for the Rushmore Outlaw Showdown.

End of regular season finale Saturday August 28th at Michael’s Mercer raceway featuring 410 sprints.

By Jim Balentine
Mercer,Pa.

The final regular night of the historic 70th anniversary season happens this Saturday August 28th featuring the 410 sprints along with the Racesaver 305 sprints, FASTRAK modifeds, and mini stocks. The big block modifeds have the night off.

The point titles were decided last week so this Saturday it’s all about the money and who will take home the top prize. The 410 sprints will race for $2500 to win and $300 to start. The other classes will compete for their regular payoffs.

2nd year driver Logan McCandless picked up his 1st career 410 sprint win last weekend over Jack Sodeman Jr. There has not been a repeat winner this season in 3 appearances so will there be another new winner or will one of these 3 emerge victorious.

The Racesaver 305 sprints point title came down to the final lap as Tommy Jasen won his 2nd career feature but lost the championship by 4 points to Logan McCandless who won 5 features out of 10 this year. With the others going to Vivian Jones, Derek Hauck, and all time 305 sprint winner Jimmy Morris.

DODGE CITY RACEWAY PARK -

In 2000, Dodge City leaders broke ground to build a state-of-the-art facility for auto racing on the southern outskirts of town. Originally constructed as a paved surface venue, it wasn't but a few years later the facility returned to its roots and popularity as a dirt venue. Dodge City Raceway Park, as part of the "Why NOT Dodge" initiative, brought affordable family entertainment to the city and took the title as the 'Premier Kansas Dirt Track.'

With a seating capacity near 3,500, Dodge City Raceway Park features a multitude of motorsports entertainment events. Including five International Motor Contest Association classes, Sooner Late Models, the United Rebel Sprint Series, flat track motorcycles and a newly added grand national tractor pulling event with the National Tractor Pulling Association. DCRP rounds out its season in the fall with the 'Steve King Memorial' - a 3-day special event featuring sprint car and midget classes.

 

 

Setters Aiming to Cap Third Straight Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series Championship Run With Win

Inside Line Promotions - SPIRIT LAKE, Idaho (Aug. 24, 2021) - James Setters is on track to score his third consecutive Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series championship.

All Setters needs to do is compete this Saturday at Electric City Speedway in Great Falls, Mont., during the season finale to secure the title in the Mike Quigley owned No. 2 sprint car.

"It definitely takes the pressure off and gives us room to experiment with setups and me with running new lines," Setters said. "When you're battling for the championship you don't experiment much."

Setters has swept all but one of the series events so far this season, winning a heat race and the main event during four nights of action. He won a heat race and placed second during the lone feature he didn't win this year.

"It definitely would be nice to go out with a win," he said. "That would be consistent with all the rest of the years with winning all but one race."

Setters has captured 13 of 16 Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series races during the last three years.

Ramey Records Two Podiums During Stellar Weekend in Missouri

Inside Line Promotions - SEDALIA, Mo. (Aug. 24, 2021) - Gunner Ramey produced his best weekend of the season by earning a pair of podium finishes.

The Terry Doogs Racing driver scored a season-best runner-up result on Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway before he capped the weekend with a third-place outing on Sunday at Missouri State Fair Speedway.

The action began on Saturday with a run from seventh to third in a heat race at the dirt oval in Eldon, Mo. That lined him up on the inside of the second row in the A Main.

"We got rolling pretty good and passed some cars in the heat race," he said. "That set us up pretty good in the feature.

"I stayed in third for the most part. Garet (Williamson) ended up getting into the wall and crashing so that moved us to second. We hung there for the rest of the race. We were fast, but didn't have enough to beat Ayrton (Gennetten). We weren't quite as good as we needed to be on the bottom, but overall it was a solid night."

Ramey wrapped up the weekend by making his debut at Missouri State Fair Speedway on Sunday.

"It was really cool," he said. "I was excited to go there. It is a historic, fast half mile. There were a lot of people in the stands and a lot of people I know. For the most part I've lived (in Sedalia) most of my life. It's a race I've always looked forward to going and watching. To have speed and be fast was great as well, especially on a track I'd never been on. I think that shows how good Terry is. He made me super comfortable and fast right out of the gate."

Ramey placed second in his heat race and lined up on the inside of the third row for the main event.

"I stayed in fifth for awhile before dropping to sixth," he said. "I slowly worked my way back up to finish third. I wasn't super good on the top, but I could make the bottom work when a lot of other people were pretty much running the top. I ended up getting a few cars on the bottom. One driver blew a tire with five or 10 laps to go so that gave us an extra position."

The rally for a third-place result was Ramey's fourth podium of the season.

He resumes action this Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa.

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 21 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Heat race: 3 (7); Feature: 2 (3).

Dover Nets Best World of Outlaws Result in Five Years

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Aug. 24, 2021) - Jack Dover earned his best World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series result since August 2016 last Sunday at Huset's Speedway, where he guided the Rick and Chris Bowers' owned No. 81 sprint car to a 16th-place finish during the Pioneer Seeds Bin Buster Bash.

"I was surprised when I was racing with Sheldon (Haudenschild) and Gio (Scelzi) and all of those guys," he said. "I'm getting more aggressive as the season is winding down. I'm getting more comfortable."

Dover qualified 22nd quickest before advancing from sixth to fifth place in a heat race, which locked him into the main event. He gained a pair of positions in the feature to end 16th.

"We didn't do well in time trials, but on a weekly show our time would have been top five," he said. "We got a good start in the heat race and got into fifth. The track was one lane and almost too good. In the feature we did the same thing. We tightened it up and circled around the bottom really good. A couple of guys went up top and we were able to sneak under them or someone would mess the entry of the corner up and we'd sneak under them. Our car was working really good on the bottom. We ended up going down a lap in the race and after the last couple of restarts we were able to battle up there around 13th, but those positions didn't count since I was a lap down."

Dover also raced with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series on Friday at Off Road Speedway in Norfolk, Neb., where he won a heat race after starting third. That advanced him into the feature redraw.

"We did a revenge redraw and I knew someone would give me the eight, which happened," he said. "We got up to fourth pretty quick. Then the track started rubbering down. The guy in third messed up and I was able to sneak underneath him, but that was as far as I could get."

Dover's third-place outing was his 19th top five of the season.

He has a three-race weekend on tap beginning Friday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series. Dover will venture to Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday before ending the weekend on Sunday at Huset's Speedway.

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 21 - Off Road Speedway in Norfolk, Neb. - Heat race: 1 (3); Feature: 3 (8).

Williamson Nearly Wins at Lake Ozark Before Late-Race Incident

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Aug. 23, 2021) - Garet Williamson was on pace to score his second victory of the season when disaster struck last Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway.

The Bryant Paver Motorsports pilot hustled from third to win a heat race to garner the pole position for the A Main.

"We were really fast," he said. "We got the lead on the first lap. I was really comfortable. The car was perfect. We were clicking off laps. We'd go four or five laps and have a yellow."

Midway through the feature Williamson nearly crashed while avoiding a spinning car. Unfortunately, a similar circumstance occurred again in the closing laps and this time it resulted in a violent end to the night.

"The two yellows before a lapped car spun out in front of me and I got into the wall," he said. "Then with two laps to go in turn one the same thing happened. I got in the wall trying to avoid someone and we flipped. At Lake Ozark this year, our home track where we've been consistently good, everything has seemed to go wrong."

Williamson was unable to finish the race and he was credited with an 18 th-place result.

Wilson Records Best All Star Result of the Season at I-96 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WAYNESFIELD, Ohio (Aug. 23, 2021) - Greg Wilson posted his season-best result with the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions last Friday at I-96 Speedway.

The Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics sponsored driver guided Seeling Motorsports from 15th to a seventh-place finish before rallying from 17th to 11th on Saturday at Waynesfield Raceway Park.

"If we could just get timed in well," he said. "I felt we had one of the fastest cars both nights. You just can't start that deep. Both tracks were just awesome come feature-time. You could race and move all over. We're making really good adjustments and getting the most out of our cars. We're just starting too deep."

Wilson qualified 15th quickest on Friday to kick off the action at the dirt track in Lake Odessa, Mich. He then finished where he started - fifth - in a heat race to garner the 15th starting position in the A Main.

"Our car was good," he said. "I could move around and I was really, really good on restarts. We were probably going to run around ninth or 10 th, but we had a late restart and I got a couple of spots at the end. Realistically we could have been a couple of spots better. I made a couple of mistakes early in the race. As it strung out it was hard to make up positions. I feel like we were one of the better cars at the end of that race, but you can't start 15th and expect to run in the top five."

The eight positions gained was tied for the second most.

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday at Waynesfield Raceway Park, where Wilson timed in 19th quickest. He advanced from seventh to sixth in a heat race to secure the 17th starting spot for the feature.

"On Saturday we had a decent pill draw and I felt like I drove good laps and the car really rolled around there good in qualifying," he said. "It's the first time I was really dejected with our qualifying time. I felt like we did everything we could do. We've talked about it and need to focus on that. No matter what we do if we could just start up front we'll be competitive. I'm happy with how the car runs in the features. We've passed a lot of race cars. Qualifying is just hurting us.

"Waynesfield is a little bullring. The Helms Family did a hell of a job with the race track. It was awesome. You could move around. Being a bullring it's hard to make up spots. There's so many cars all over the place. I love it. I felt like we got about as much out of it as we could without being involved in wrecks. If we could have started in the thick of things I don't feel like we would have backed up. I could really get around the top of turns one and two well. In turns three and four I could get around the bottom and toward the end I could go across the middle. When we did that we got a spot or two."

Wilson's run from 17th to 11th marked the third most positions gained.

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 20 - I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Mich. - Qualifying: 15; Heat race: 5 (5); Feature: 7 (15).

Aug. 21 - Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio - Qualifying: 19; Heat race: 6 (7); Feature: 11 (17).

CARLISLE, PA. - August 23, 2021 - With super sub Ian Madsen at the controls, CJB Motorsports turned in a solid weekend of racing with the Ollies Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit for Champions.

The RE Pierson Constructions, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, Ecynbro Trucking, C&S Lawn and Landscape, Marchant Cattle Co. and High Performance Lubricants #5 team will now head for home as a four pack of events highlight their schedule to close out August. Here is the slate:

CHICORA, Pa. (August 23, 2021) – A perfect test session for the upcoming Sprint Car Spectacular, Chicora, Pennsylvania’s George Hobaugh made the short tow to Lernerville Speedway on Friday, August 20, and participated in another round of Fab4 competition, ultimately ending his campaign with another mark in the top-ten column. Hobaugh, driver of the Hobaugh Motorsports, Krill Recycling, Laskowski Plumbing, Ridgeview Security, Hobaugh’s Auto Parts, Colliers Custom Kitchen and Bath, No. 40 sprint car, finished ninth at Lernerville; his best finish at the Speedway since scoring a podium on Friday, June 11.

Boasting a $3,500 top prize, Lernerville’s Sprint Car Spectacular, made possible by the fine folk at Peluso Roofing, will headline action at the Sarver oval on Friday, August 27. A minimum of 24 starters will make the call for the August blockbuster which will guarantee a minimum of $300-to-start.

“We’re excited to head back to Lernerville on Friday. Hats off to everyone who made the Sprint Car Spectacular possible,” George Hobaugh said, a one-time winner thus far in 2021, earning the triumph at Hartford, Ohio’s Sharon Speedway on May 15. “I think we were better than ninth our last start out, but we’ll take the top-ten and build from that. Hopefully we can put ourselves in a prime position to contend for a win this weekend. We’re overdue.”

Including his recent top-ten at Lernerville, Hobaugh will enter the Sprint Car Spectacular on a stretch of success, all of which padded by multiple top-five runs at Sharon Speedway. In fact, Hobaugh owns two consecutive top-fives at Sharon; a runner-up result on August 7 and a fifth-place score on August 14.

Dietrich consistent through Central PA; All Star invasion looms, Selinsgrove also ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (August 23, 2021) – It was a consistent weekend in the Keystone State for Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing, eventually translating a pair of starts into a pair of top-ten scores, highlighting the weekend with an impressive rally from 12th to finish fourth at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, August 21. Dietrich’s Lincoln outcome nearly resulted in a podium, but a late-race caution on lap 26 negated a hard-fought three-way battle for second.

“Double-D” opened his weekend with a sixth-place score at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, August 20; the Gettysburg native started 10th.

“We have the speed and the ability to be better than where we finished, especially at Lincoln. We were right up there on Saturday, but sometimes things don’t fall your way, especially when you have to start that far back. We’ll put this behind us and look ahead to some big races this weekend,” Danny Dietrich expressed, driver of the Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, Graver’s Garage, No. 48 sprint car. “We’re excited to join the All Stars on a few occasions, but we’re going to head to Selinsgrove on Saturday. We’ve been really strong there, and with Selinsgrove having a point fund, and with Sprint Car Unlimited having their own point fund for all of their broadcast races, we don’t want to miss the chance to make extra money. We’ll be back to finish the weekend with the All Stars at BAPS on Sunday.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will join the All Star Circuit of Champions on three occasions during the coming weekend, all of which activating with a Thursday night visit to Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania, on August 26. Dietrich’s All Star weekend will continue with the annual Jack Gunn Memorial at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, August 27. As years prior, the Jack Gunn will feature a pair of 20-lap main events each awarding a $4,000 top prize.

Stepping off of the All Star trail, Selinsgrove Speedway’s own Jack Gunn Memorial will fill Dietrich’s void on Saturday, August 28. The unsanctioned program will award a $5,000 top prize, as well as points toward Selinsgrove Speedway’s overall sprint car championship. Dietrich is a recent winner at the high speed half-mile, scoring the 75th Anniversary Race on July 20.

Dietrich will return to All Star Circuit of Champions competition on Sunday, August 29, with a visit to BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven. The Sunday night showstopper, awarding a $5,000 top prize, is dubbed the Johnny Mackison Clash.

We get to do it again beginning Wednesday,” Brock Zearfoss said, a former World of Outlaws winner at Williams Grove Speedway. “I can’t say enough about my team. It’s been an up and down year for us, but the speed has been there. Switch some of our results with some better luck and we may have a win by now. I want to thank all of our partners for staying strong with us during this rookie season. They’ve been behind me one hundred percent and that makes my job a lot easier…having confidence is the most important part of this sport.”

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will enjoy two days off before returning to North Dakota this Wednesday, August 25, for a makeup date at Grand Forks’ River Cities Speedway. After that, The Greatest Show on Dirt will head to Nebraska’s I-80 Speedway on Friday, August 27, followed by a stop at South Dakota’s Black Hills Speedway on Sunday, August 29.

WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY SEASON CHAMPIONSHIP FOR SPRINT CARS & LATE MODELS MAY COME DOWN TO THE LAST LAP; FANS CAN SPONSOR LAPS FOR PETE JACOBS MEMORIAL

Orrville, Ohio

By Mike Swanger

The final points night for the O'Reilly's Auto Parts 'Race to the Championship' at Wayne County Speedway will happen on Saturday night, August 28 with the Pine Tree Towing & Recovery Sprints and the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Models both having just a six and four point difference between the leaders. Although winning three of the first four races this season in the Sprints and having a total six wins total, Broc Martin has seen his lead dwindle down to just six points after his involvement in a crash last week and a 16th place finish plus a ninth place finish the week before. Meanwhile, two time defending track champion, Dean Jacobs has been working his way back up the points ladder after an opening night engine problem and has put together six second place runs and a victory in the last seven weeks to close the gap on Martin.

The McKenzie Concrete Super Stock title will also go to Kyle Moore as he just has to start the feature on Saturday. Moore has racked up seven wins after getting off to a slow start at the beginning of the year with only one top five in the first month. Chase Alexander has a nine point lead over Don Rutt for second while Jimmy Humphrey has a 19 point advantage over Brandon Craver for fourth. The last half of the top ten has Curt Zimmerman, Tyler Wiles, Paul McVicker, Paul Holmes and Don Baney all looking to stay in the top ten.

Jordan James just needs to roll onto the racing surface to become the JOYRIDE Transport Mini Stock champion for this season thanks to his seven checkered flags this year. Johnny Bruce Sr. is solid in second with Mitch Reichard, Doug Hensel, Kyle Petit and Ryan Carder bunched together for third through sixth with just 15 points between Reichard and Carder.

Champion Oil Supports Annual Commercial Vehicle Brake Safety Week

(Clinton, MO / 08.23.21) The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance's annual Brake Safety Week is in full swing. It’s when law enforcement inspectors across North America will be looking for any commercial motor vehicles found to have brake-related violations that might place them out of service. https://www.fleetowner.com/safety/article/21164730/cvsa-sets-date-focus-for-brake-safety-week

During last fall's brake inspection blitz, more than 5,100 commercial vehicles were placed out of service because of brake-related violations. In addition, brake system and brake adjustment violations accounted for more vehicle violations than any other vehicle violation category, accounting for 38.6% of all vehicle out-of-service conditions.

What can you expect if get pulled over for inspection?

Law enforcement officers checking brake systems will look for: Loose or missing parts, air or hydraulic fluid leaks, trouble-indicator lights on the dash, including antilock brakes, worn linings, pads, drums, or rotors, mismatched air chamber sizes across axles, warning device functionality (such as antilock braking system indicator lights), proper brake adjustment, brake hoses and tubing condition, and measuring pushrod stroke to ensure brakes are properly adjusted.

“While you are at it, it’s a good idea to either top up or flush your brake fluid system,” suggested Karl Dedolph at Champion Oil. “Brake fluid is an important component in any hydraulic braking system. The fluid is subjected to hundreds of pounds of pressure but also needs to lubricate rubber components in the master cylinder, wheel cylinders, calipers, and hoses. In addition, brake fluid has corrosion inhibitors that keep the bores of hydraulic cylinders from rusting and pitting.”

“Most of today’s brake fluids are made of polyalkylene glycol, which is hygroscopic, meaning it absorbs moisture. The absorption of water prevents “pooling” of the absorbed water in the brake system, where corrosive acids can form and make the components deteriorate. Water in a brake system will also cause fluids to freeze or boil faster.”

“Champion DOT 3 Brake Fluid is typically recommended for trucks prior to the mid-1990s, but DOT 3 brake fluids still makeup a large portion of service fills in newer vehicles. DOT 3 brake fluid has a dry boiling point of 490 degrees, which is fine for brake systems with large brake drums and thick disc brake rotors, where brake heat can be easily dispersed. It has a viscosity of roughly 1500cSt at -40 F. Exceeds the specifications of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard #116 and SAE J1703 for DOT 3 brake fluids.”

“Champion DOT 4 Brake Fluid is recommended for most disk brake vehicles and is also a poly-glycol base. DOT 4 has a boiling point of 494 degrees F., and it is rated at a viscosity of 1800cSt at -40 F. This DOT 4 brake fluid differs from DOT 3 due to the ability to chemically scavenge water, reducing the rate at which performance deteriorates when the fluid is exposed to humidity in service. Exceeds the specifications of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard #116 and SAE J1704 for DOT 4 brake fluids,” added Dedolph.

2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Fourth | 7484 points [238 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (August 23, 2021) - Officially bumping his all-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series win total to 301, ten-time Series champion Donny Schatz put Fargo fans on their feet Saturday night at Red River Valley Speedway, clinching his second World of Outlaws victory of the season with a rally from fourth in 22 of 30 laps. Schatz, who lives just minutes from Red River Valley, drove around Hanover, Pennsylvania’s Logan Schuchart to take the race lead, using the very topside of turn four to secure the point, and ultimately $10,000.

“Winning at home is big, and it’s important,” Schatz said to a raucous crowd on Saturday night. “I mean, look at this crowd. You guys are incredible. It’s cliche, but I can’t thank you guys enough for the support, it means a lot to me. I’m 25 years into this deal, and I’m feeling better every day. I don’t know that I have another 25, but I know that I’ve still got a lot left in me.”

Schatz secured his place on the Red River Valley grid by way of heat race victory, finishing fourth in the evening’s dash shortly thereafter.

In total, Schatz owns 23 World of Outlaws wins in his home state of North Dakota, six of which at Red River Valley.

“We haven’t had the greatest year, but we’re past 300...we’re onto the 301, and now we want 302,” Schatz mentioned. “We’re hitting on all cylinders right now. This is a new Ford powerplant under the hood. Things have been way better with this. It’s a lot easier for me to drive, and we can do the things that we couldn’t earlier this year. Hats off to Ford Performance, and every single one of our partners for sticking with us. We’ve lacked speed at the end of the races, and these past few weeks there’s been a huge difference. I’m feeling really good going forward.”

Schatz, pilot of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Carquest Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Sage Fruit/Digital Ally/Advance Auto Parts/Rush Truck Centers/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, capped his three-race turned two-race weekend with another top-five outcome, this time finishing fourth at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, on Sunday, August 22.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will enjoy two days off before returning to North Dakota this Wednesday, August 25, for a makeup date at Grand Forks’ River Cities Speedway. The race was originally slated for Friday, August 20. After that, The Greatest Show on Dirt will head to Nebraska’s I-80 Speedway on Friday, August 27, followed by a stop at South Dakota’s Black Hills Speedway on Sunday, August 29. Schatz will enter the three-state swing fourth in the Series title chase trailing the championship lead by 238 markers.

Robinson Extends SCCT Point Lead with Johnny Key Classic Podium

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night at Ocean Speedway, Ryan Robinson remained hot with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour as the Roseville, CA driver picked up a third-place finish behind a joint effort from his Weiher Racing team and his family team.

“I really have to thank my dad as well as the Weiher Racing team for coming together and putting a really strong car together for me to run while Todd Weiher recovers from some health issues,” Ryan Robinson said. “We had a really fast car, unfortunately the rubber came in around the halfway point and we just kind of got in line.”

With an overflowing pit area boasting 48 SCCT cars for the 61st running of the Johnny Key Classic, Robinson got his night started off on the right foot as he timed the Mako Farms/LP Holdings/RPI backed No. 14w machine in fastest overall in qualifications.

Lining up fourth in his heat race, Robinson was able to make a couple of quick moves to jump into the second position. Going on to finish second, Robinson advanced into the High Sierra Industries Dash where a third-place finish lined him up in the second row of the 35-lap feature event.

When the feature event came to life, it was Shane Golobic jumping out to a quick lead, but Robinson was able to get past Dominic Scelzi and take the second position.

Chasing after Golobic who set a torrid pace early, the leaders would find the back of the field in just four laps. Fighting through thick traffic, Scelzi would get under Robinson and drop him back to third as they negotiated through slower cars.

A caution on the 13th lap would take traffic out of the equation as the field restarted in double file formation. As the lead duo took off, Robinson remained in the third position as he reeled them back in as traffic again came into play.

As they continued to run through traffic, and Robinson remained in third, the trac would start to take rubber and the field would start to fall in line.

Hanging in third, Robinson would cap his night off with another podium run with the series, as he also was able to extend his point lead.

“We had a couple of really fun battles with Dominic Scelzi in the Dash and in the feature, and it was a good night for us overall,” Robinson said. “Fun to drive a fast car, fun to work with two great teams, and happy to extend our point lead.”

Weiher Racing would like to thank Mako Farms, Inc., LP Holdings, Roseville Precision, Inc., Escalon Body and Frame, Seth’s Racing Engines, Papa Chuck, Dave Harvey Trucking, and Morrison Concrete for their support in 2021!

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-19, Wins-1, Top 5’s-9, Top 10’s-17

ON TAP: Robinson and the Weiher Racing team’s next race is TBD.

Kalib Henry and McColloch Motorsports 4th at Johnny Key Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA: Making the trip out to Watsonville, CA with McColloch Motorsports, Kalib Henry would put together a strong showing with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour as he finished fourth at the 61st Johnny Key Classic.

“Our car has really good balance and a lot of speed right now,” Henry said. “Nick has really been working hard and it is paying off. Unfortunately, the track took rubber and really didn’t allow for a lot of action for most of the race.”

With 48 cars on hand Saturday night, Henry would time the McColloch’s RV Repair/Express Sewer and Drain/Davis Truck Painting backed NO. 17 in second fastest in his qualifying group which would be good enough for the pole of his heat race.

Battling with Joey Ancona in the opening stages of his heat, the Mather, CA driver was able to clear his competitor and race his way to the very important Heat Race win. By way of the win, Henry would be locked into the Johnny Key Classic feature event and would also qualify for the High Sierra Industries Dash.

Pulling the five in the redraw, Henry would finish fifth in the Dash would lined him up in the third row of the 35-lap Johnny Key Classic feature event.

Following a bit of track prep prior to the feature event, Henry would get off to a nice start as he was able to jump into the fourth position as the leaders were in traffic in the opening five laps.

The first half of the race ripped off at a torrid pace until the first caution flag was needed. As the race went back green, the track changed drastically, and rubber began to go down on the surface.

As the rubber built up, passing would come to a halt as the field got in the rubber and worked around the ¼ mile.

Keeping his place in line, Henry would go on to cap his night off with a fourth-place finish.

“It was a bummer the track took rubber, because I felt we were really good,” Henry said. “Looking forward to taking this car to Stockton this weekend and see how we stack up after a rough go when we were there back in July.”

McColloch Motorsports would like to thank McColloch’s RV Repair, Express Sewer and Drain, Davis Truck Painting, Driven Homes, Inc., ART Speed Equipment, RE Technologies, Hansen Machine, ADCO Driveline, and Gary Morgan Graphics for their continued support.

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

ON TAP: McColloch Motorsports will be back in action with Kalib Henry on Saturday night in Stockton, CA.

 

 

Justin Sanders Charges to Third at Johnny Key Classic Opener

PETERSEN MEDIA: Friday night at Ocean Speedway, Justin Sanders put on quite a show as he charged from 11th to third to open the Johnny Key Classic weekend before an unfortunate Heat Race accident on Saturday night ended his weekend early.

“Friday night we didn’t get timed in well and we couldn’t win our heat to get in the Dash,” Sanders said. “In the feature I
