Austin Liggett Fourth at Petaluma Speedway with USAC Western States Midgets

PETERSEN MEDIA: After a couple of tough Sprint Car outings, Austin Liggett returned to midget action on Saturday night in Petaluma, CA where he would pick up a fourth place finish on the hooked up Petaluma Gumbo.

“Petaluma isn’t one of my greatest tracks, so to have really good speed, lead some laps, and come home in one piece feels pretty good,” Austin Liggett said. “We just got more tight as the feature event moved on and fell back to fourth after leading early.”

Timing the Excel Environmental Services/Liggett Trucking/Tool Technology backed No. 83 machine in fourth fastest in qualifying time trials, the Tracy, CA product turned Linden, CA resident went from fifth to third in heat race action.

Taking the green flag from the second row, Liggett was hard on the throttle and jumped out to the lead, as the field raced into turns one and two. Running the middle and bottom grooves, Liggett would look extremely strong out front, but would soon feel pressure from Maria Cofer.

Continuing to run his line, Cofer would make the top work and would drive by Liggett on the 10th lap though he wouldn’t let her get away. Chasing her back down as he was able to move around the Petaluma Speedway Liggett would make a big move to slide back to the top spot, but Cofer was able to answer and motor away.

As the track continued to ‘come back’ as the race went on, Liggett’s machine would continue to tighten up on him as he slipped back to third as Alex Shutte got by him.

Fending of Robert Dalby for the final spot on the podium, Liggett had to burp the throttle on the last lap as he approached a pair of battling slower cars and it would allow Dalby by as he came home with a fourth place finish.

“Big thanks to Scott for working hard for me all night and giving me a pretty good car,” Liggett added. “Also thanks to my parents, Landon, and Andrew for their help all night as well.”

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

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-19, Wins-6, Top 5’s-13, Top 10’s-15

ON TAP: Liggett is back in his Midget this Saturday night in Merced, CA.

Blake Carrick 11th at Ocean Speedway Friday Night

PETERSEN MEDIA: Spending his weekend at Ocean Speedway taking part in both nights of the Howard Kaeding Classic, Blake Carrick’s 11th place run during Friday’s 360ci program would highlight his weekend.

“Friday night we were able to get in the show and move forward a little bit,” Blake Carrick said. “Saturday night, I just didn’t get a good time trial and it pretty much buried us all night long.”

Kicking the weekend off with the Ocean Sprints pres. by Taco Bravo on Friday, the youngster from Lincoln, CA timed the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 38b machine in 13th quickest in qualifying time trials.

Moving into heat race action, Carrick would be in the hunt to pick up the win and earn a Dash berth, but he would come up just short as his second place finish would still be good enough to move him directly into the 30-lap feature event.

Having his work cut out for himself from the inside of the eighth row, Carrick would slowly work his way forward as he sat just outside of the Top-10 looking for a way in.

Battling with Tony Gualda and Geoff Ensign late in the race, Carrick couldn’t clear Gualda for a Top-10 as he took the Ed Entz Checkered flag with an 11th place finish.

Saturday night Ocean Speedway was again the scene as Carrick went to battle with the King of the West Series.

A 27th quick time trial would put Carrick in a pretty big hole to start the night, and unfortunately he was unable to dig himself out.

Finishing seventh in his heat race, Carrick moved into the ‘B’ where he took the green from the eighth starting position.

On a narrow surface that had been touched up prior, passing would be ultra tough on this night as Carrick would only get up to sixth as his night concluded in the semi.

“Saturday night, we just couldn’t go anywhere in the ‘B’,” Carrick said. “It was pretty narrow for us, and things were tough. A little disappointing end to the weekend, but now we look to get back on track at Placaerville Speedway Saturday.”

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

ON TAP: Blake Carrick is scheduled to take part in the Mark Forni Classic on Saturday night in Placerville, CA.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-29, Wins-0, Top 5’s-3, Top 10’s-6

Prestigious $5,000-to-win Mark Forni Classic invades Placerville Speedway this Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – July 23, 2019…The El Dorado County Fairgrounds based Placerville Speedway is geared up for one of its biggest nights of the season with the 14th annual Mark Forni Classic set to take place on the famed red clay this Saturday July 27th.

The Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Car feature at the Mark Forni Classic will once again hand out $5,000 to the winner, making it the highest paying weekly event of the season at the quarter-mile. Along with the Sprint Cars also competing on Saturday will be the Ltd. Late Models, the Jay’s Mobile Welding & Fabricating Pure Stocks and for the second straight week the BCRA Midget Lites.

The Forni family has a great history in El Dorado County, with deep ties to the El Dorado County Fairgrounds and much of the land on which it sits. Much like his forefathers, Mark Forni had a great passion for the county fair and its attributes, especially the racetrack.

From the time he was a young child and the days when Placerville Speedway was known as “Old Hangtown Speedway,” Mark was actively involved with the weekly auto races, always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need involved with the sport he loved.

Later in life, Mark continued his contributions to local auto racing, sponsoring many race teams with his business, Forni’s Trucking. He later became a member of the El Dorado County Fair Board and focused on the issues regarding the future of the fair and the speedway. Mark Forni believed in working relationships. He understood the importance of race promoters, sponsorships and the one key element for every event to be successful, the spectator.

In November of 2004, Mark was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. During his final months, Mark had the opportunity to say goodbye to friends and family and spend some special moments with his wife and children, a bittersweet time for those who knew and loved him so much. In the summer of 2005, Mark passed away at the early age of 45

“Mark was the guy who got it done no matter what,” said former long-time Placerville Speedway promoter Alan Handy, who we hope to have in attendance on Saturday. “It didn’t matter how big of a problem we may have had. He would call me up see what it would take to fix it. He didn’t just provide the resources either. Mark would be right there lending a hand right down to his final days. I miss him, I think everyone here misses him, he was a great guy.”

Auburn, California racers Andy Forsberg and Ray Trimble, along with Oakley’s Nick Baldwin continue to sit atop the Winged 360 Sprint Car, Ltd. Late Model and Pure Stock standings respectively heading into the Mark Forni Classic. Roseville’s Sean Becker is the all-time leader in Forni Classic victories, having captured the event on three separate occasions. After winning at Placerville Speedway a couple weeks ago with the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360’s the “Shark” will be favorite on Saturday to add a fourth.

Adult tickets this Saturday will cost $15, while seniors 62 plus, military and juniors 12-17 will be $13, children 6-11 are $6, kids five and under are free! Tickets can also be purchased online by clicking https://www.universe.com/events/2019-placerville-speedway-championship-pts-race-12-forni-classic-tickets-placerville-WRK7L8
The pit gate at Placerville Speedway will open at 2pm, with the front grandstand gate opening at 3pm. A happy hour is offered from 4pm-6pm in the grandstands featuring discounted Coors Light and Coors Original at the beer stand. Drivers meeting will be held at 4:30pm, with cars on track for wheel packing at 5. Hot laps, ADCO Driveline & Custom Exhaust qualifying and racing will follow. Live music will be performed from 4-6 in the grandstand midway.

Including this Saturday’s event there are just four championship point races remaining in the 2019 season at Placerville Speedway. Following the Mark Forni Classic the track will then get ready to host “Legends Night” on August 10th, followed by “Student Night” on August 17th. The championship point finale will occur with “Ladies Night” on September 14th. Sandwiched between all of that we also have the King of the West-NARC “Gold Country Showdown” featuring Kyle Larson on Wednesday August 21st and the rescheduled World of Outlaws “49er Gold Rush Classic” on Wednesday September 11th.

"410" SPRINT CARS FOR $3000 TO-WIN HIGHLIGHT SATURDAY'S MENARDS "SUPER SERIES" ALONG WITH STOCKS, RUSH MODS & ELITE ECONO MODS

by Mike Leone

Hartford, OH July 23, 2019 After a weekend off and a surprise storm that washed out last Saturday night's racing program, Sharon Speedway is hopeful to resume action this Saturday night (July 27) for another Menards "Super Series" event. Texas Roadhouse Night as part of the 90th anniversary season will feature the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars, Gibson Insurance Agency Stock Cars, HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, Summit Racing Equipment Econo Mods in an Elite Series event along with the Junior Sprints for kids. Race time is 7 p.m.

The "410" Sprint Cars have put on four tremendous shows this year with Cole Duncan withstanding the challenges of Tony Stewart for the $3,000 FAST-sanctioned victory that came over an excellent field of 43 cars back on May 11, then A.J. Flick out-dueled George Hobaugh for the $3,000 non-sanctioned win on May 18 with 33 cars on hand. After 10 straight different winners, Dave Blaney ended the streak picking up the June 29 $3,000 win over a 30-car field for his 30th career "410" win at Sharon. Brother Dale Blaney then won his first "Lou Blaney Memorial" on July 6 in the $6,000 to-win All Star Circuit of Champions-sanctioned event. Unfortunately the May 4 and June 18 All Star races were rained out in addition to the June 1 non-sanctioned show.

Last year, the "410" Sprint Car events had at least 29 cars present every night with eight different winners in eight events, while there's been four different winners in as many 2019 events with at least 30 cars on hand each night.

Saturday will utilize the hot lap/group qualifying format that has been used at all "Super Series" Sprint Car events the last two years. Two to three cars will qualify at a time only amongst their heat race group. The fastest four in each heat will be inverted with the top three redrawing plus the fastest transferring non-top three finisher if there are three heats or the top two plus the two fastest transferring non-top two finishers if there are four heats. The B main will be lined up heads up on heat race finishes. Heat and B main finish(es) will complete the 24-car starting lineup. Mufflers are not required and there are no registration or entry fees.

The Stock Cars last competed on June 29 when Curt J. Bish ended a four-year winless drought. Defending track champion, Chris McGuire, won his first show of the season on June 8. Ironically the duo, who have won the last two races, are tied for Gibson Insurance Agency points lead with Andy Thompson, Larry Kugel, and Shaun Hooks completing the top five. Other winners this season include Bobby Whitling on May 18 when he ended a seven-year Sharon winless drought and Chris Schneider at the May 11 show that was actually the 2018 "Apple Festival Nationals" make-up, worth $2,000. Will there be a fifth different winner in five races on Saturday night!?

Rob Kristyak leads the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds into Sharon this Saturday night, which had 32 cars on hand last Saturday night before the rain out. Kristyak has two wins and hasn't finished outside the top five this season at Sharon and also has victories at Raceway 7 and Expo. The Bristolville, Ohio driver leads the HTMA/Precise Racing Products points by nine over Kole Holden with Tony Tatgenhorst, Chas Wolbert, and Jacob Jordan completing the top five. Wolbert leads RUSH's $3,000 to-win Weekly Series Championship. Also on Saturday night, the "Wheelman" race for non-winners presented by Ohio Intra Express and C&R Tire will take place at the end of the night. David Kalb, Jr. has won two of the three races, but it's Amelia Clay of Warren, Ohio leading the points.

The Econo Mods will be competing in an Elite Series event on Saturday night with $500 to-win, $100 to-start. The Econo Mods have also struggled to get shows in during the 2019 season with only three to date, but with three different winners. The first was the 2018 "Apple Festival Nationals" make-up on May 11 when Kyle Miller won his biggest career race worth $750. One week later, Ty Rhoades won the only regular event completed this season. On June 29, Eric Wilson won the Elite Series show. Rhoades has a 24-point lead on Andy Buckley in the Summit Racing Equipment standings with Gary Olson in third. Dustin Demattia and Jacob Eucker are tied for fourth.

Pits will be open throughout the afternoon on Saturday with pit passes going on sale at 4 p.m., while the main grandstands open at 5. Drivers meeting will be at 6:00 p.m. followed by Sprint engine starts at 6:15 and group qualifying at 6:30. Heat races are scheduled for 7 p.m.

Grandstand admission for those 14 and over is $13, while senior citizens are $10. Patio seating upgrades are just $5 and fan suite seating upgrades are just $20 over the cost of general admission. These can be reserved on race night in the track office. As always, children under 14 and parking are always FREE! Pit passes are $30. As a reminder, coolers nor outside food or beverages are not permitted.

Coming up on Tuesday, July 30 will be the return of the Super DIRTcar Series for the Big-Block Modifieds, which will be featured in a 100-lap $7,500 to-win feature. The non-wing RUSH Sprint Cars will also be racing for $600 to-win. Reserved tickets are on sale by visiting SharonSpeedway.com and clicking on "Buy Tickets" at the top left of the page. Predator Trucking and Stackhouse Construction are presenting the event.

ROYAL RUNNER: Stewart & CJB Charge Through Kings Royal Field
Silver Cup and Summer Nationals Highlight Pennsylvania Summer Swing

CARLISLE, PA. - July 23, 2019 - A strong week in Ohio has CJB Motorsports anxious to contend for more race wins as the tour heads for their own backyard in Pennsylvania.

Scheduled racing action at Attica (Ohio) Raceway Park on Tuesday, July 16th for the annual Brad Doty Classic was canceled due to rain. That meant that the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series took to Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio for the annual Kings Royal weekend.

The first night of racing action was a make up date from the #LetsRaceTwo event that was postponed from May. In that event, ran on Wednesday, July 13th, Shane Stewart wheeled the CJB #5 to the top of the speed charts during time trials, won his heat race, finished 5th in the dash and 15th in the feature.

The following night, crew chief Barry Jackson prepared another rocket ship as Stewart took the top spot in time trials again and won his heat race. A 5th place finish in the dash and a 8th place result in the feature rounded out the night.


For Friday night, Stewart timed in 11th, finished 3rd in his heat race and 16th in the feature. For the $175,000-to-win event on Saturday, Stewart timed in 19th, finished 4th in his heat race, came through the Last Chance Showdown and charged from 24th to 14th in the Royal itself.

"I wish we that speed we showed in time trials would have been there the whole night but setting a couple of quick times showed that we do have speed, which is important," said Stewart, pilot of the #5 Killer Instinct Crossbows , Weikert's Livestock, Ecynbro Trucking, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn & Landscape machine. "Our results were not what this team wanted but my guys never gave up. It was hot for four days straight and they continued to work hard for me. We actually started to find some things towards the end of the week that made me more comfortable."

A swing through Pennsylvania is next on the docket for the tour. On Tuesday, July 22nd is the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup at Lernerville Speedway near Sarver. On Friday and Saturday nights, it's another double header at Williams Grove Speedway near Mechanicsburg. These three events will wrap up the slate of events for the month of July.

"I have never been that great at Lernerville so I am hoping Barry (Jackson) can help me there," Stewart said. "Getting back to the Grove is a good thing in the sense it's in Barry's backyard. We had a couple of decent finishes there earlier this year so we should be good there."

Westfall highlights busy week with top-ten at Eldora; PPMS visit with BOSS ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (July 22, 2019) – It was a busy week for Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports, as the Forest, Ohio-based racing operation joined the best of the Midwest, as well as all of the stars of USAC, during four consecutive starts across Ohio and much of Indiana.

Despite a few hiccups during starts at Gas City Speedway and Kokomo Speedway, Westfall and the ever-familiar ‘Bumblebee Express’ did secure one top-ten finish during their Indiana Sprint Week attempt, also putting on an impressive passing display at Plymouth Speedway on Friday, July 19.

Westfall ended his evening at Plymouth with a charge from 19th to finish 11th against a stout field of USAC National Sprint Car Series regulars.

Westfall’s top-ten appearance occurred at the World’s Greatest Dirt Track – Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, during round two of #LetsRaceTwo on Wednesday evening, July 17. Securing his spot in the evening’s main event by winning the consolation semi-feature, Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports went on to rally from 10th to finish sixth at The Big E.

The two-time BOSS winner in 2019 is certainly no stranger to USAC National Sprint Car Series competition, recently capturing a tenth place performance during Knoxville Raceway’s Corn Belt Nationals in early July.

“It was a busy week for our team, but the guys did their best and that’s all I can ask for,” Ray Marshall explained, owner of the Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Crazy Lady Restaurant and Bar/Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car. “We had our ups and downs, but the ups certainly make up for any tough outings. We’ll take the next few days to regroup before making the trek to Pennsylvania to continue our BOSS commitments.”

Up next on the schedule, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will make the trip to Dirt’s Monster Half Mile – Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway near Imperial, Pennsylvania, for Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) action on Saturday, July 27. Westfall owns two BOSS victories this season, scoring wins at Atomic Speedway in April, as well as a recent victory at Fremont Speedway on July 13.

Whittall scores top-ten at the Speed Palace; Outlaw start in the works

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

VINCENTOWN, N.J. (July 22, 2019) – Becoming increasingly comfortable with the half-mile at Juniata County Fairgrounds, Vincentown, New Jersey’s Justin Whittall propelled himself into the top-ten at Port Royal Speedway yet again, this time advancing from 14th to do so on Saturday evening, July 20.

For Whittall, the top-ten is one of many at the ‘Speed Palace’ in 2019, highlighting all starts with a runner-up finish on Saturday, June 15.

The top-ten accomplishment will not only boost Whittall’s 2019 statistics, but it will also build confidence, as the pilot of the JW Motorsports entry plans to make a Summer Nationals appearance at Williams Grove Speedway, if all goes according to plan.

“Port Royal Speedway is definitely one of the most competitive places in the country. We are becoming more and more comfortable and that is truly motivating for our team,” Justin Whittall explained, a former URC competitor turned full-time 410 racer. “Confidence and momentum are very important. We are building both of those on a weekly basis. Hopefully we can put both to good use this weekend against the Outlaws.”

If all goes according to plan, Justin Whittall will make the journey to the world-famous Williams Grove Speedway during the coming weekend, working hard to compete with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series during the annual Summer Nationals program. A definite decision regarding a potential trip to Williams Grove will be made later in the week.

Brent Marks caps Kings Royal with impressive charge from 16th to third

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MYERSTOWN, Pa. (July 22, 2019) – It was a successful week for the ‘Myerstown Missile’ at the World’s Greatest Dirt Track, translating four Eldora Speedway starts against the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series into a pair of top-ten performances, one of which during the richest winged sprint car event in the history of the sport.

Marks, driver of the Brent Marks Racing/M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Eagle Hotel/No. 19 sprint car, earned his first top-ten finish of the week during the #LetsRaceTwo make-up event on Wednesday evening, July 17.

After finishing 13th and 15th, respectively, during the Jokers Wild and Knight Before the Kings Royal programs on July 18 & 19, Marks capped his weekend at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, with the ultimate performance; rallying from 16th to finish third during the $175,000-to-win Kings Royal on Saturday, July 20. The jaw-dropping performance, which ended with Marks pressuring Logan Schuchart for second during the closing circuits, was solid enough to clinch the evening’s Hard Charger Award for advancing the most positions.

“Man, that was fun. That surface on Saturday was unbelievable and it really played into our favor. You could ride the cushion to build momentum, but you could also drive through the center, as well as the bottom, to get around race cars,” Brent Marks explained, who is currently 11th in the World of Outlaws championship standings. “Hats off to this entire team. They work hard and they never give up. They gave me a great car at Eldora all week. Our performance on Saturday really shows this team’s potential and I’m excited to see what the rest of the week has in store, especially with Williams Grove coming up quick.”

Brent Marks and Brent Marks Racing will continue their third, full year on the road with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series with three events in five days, first visiting Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania, for the $25,000-to-win Silver Cup on Tuesday, July 23.

Following his visit to Lernerville, Marks will have the opportunity to become reacquainted with Williams Grove Speedway, anxious to take-on his fellow World of Outlaws, as well as the infamous Pennsylvania Posse, during the two-day Summer Nationals on July 26 & 27.

ST. HELENA, Calif (July 22, 2019) - St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu has been enjoying success during his stint in the Midwest, now adding another pair of World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series top-ten performances, one of which a top-five outcome, to his ever-increasing list of season accomplishments.

Abreu, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Southern Pacific Farms/Priority Aviation/Dewalt Tools/Mac Tools/Self Made Racing/Dancer Logistics/No. 24 sprint car, spent his recent week at the famed-Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, entering four straight nights of competition from Thursday, July 17, through Saturday, July 20. Qualifying for all four World of Outlaws main events contested, Abreu highlighted his trip to The Big E with a fourth place finish during Friday’s Knight Before The Kings Royal, advancing from eight to do so.

Other highlights include finishing sixth during Wednesday’s #LetsRaceTwo make-up, solidifying Hard Charger Award honors in the process; the result of a rally from the outside of row seven.

In addition, the recent MOWA winner in Lincoln, Illinois, finished 15th during the Jokers Wild program at Eldora Speedway on Thursday, bumping ahead from 20th on the grid.

Abreu capped his weekend in Rossburg, Ohio, by finishing 16th during the historic, $175,000-to-win Kings Royal finale on Saturday, July 20; the richest winged sprint car event in history. There were 62 cars entered for action on Saturday night with the California-native securing his main event starting position by finishing third during his respective heat race.

“It was a fun week at Eldora Speedway. We were able to show speed all four nights and that’s exciting. I think we were a little short of obtaining our ultimate goal, but there were 61 drivers signed on Saturday night who probably felt the same way,” Rico Abreu said, who owns three victories in 2019, two in California in addition to his recent MOWA triumph. “Hats off to this team and their efforts all week. It was hot and muggy. They were exhausted, I’m sure, but they never slowed down and they never stopped working. I appreciate what they do for me and I certainly wouldn’t be in this position without them.”

The trend of being busy will continue for Rico Abreu, now setting aim on five events in seven days, two taking shape across the border in southern Canada.
Rico Abreu will ignite his five-race campaign with the Northern Summer Nationals at Ohsweken Speedway, Canada, on Monday and Tuesday, July 22 & 23. The two-day, 360c.i. showstopper will award back-to-back $5,000 paydays.

Once early week action in Canada is complete, Abreu will hop back across the border and rejoin the All Star Circuit of Champions for a three-day stint through the Midwest visiting Jackson Motorplex, Knoxville Raceway and 34 Raceway on Friday through Sunday, July 26-28, respectively. The All Star trio will be highlighted with the $26,000-to-win, Rayce Rudeen Foundation event at 34 Raceway on Sunday night.

Impressive enough, the four-race stretch was conducted in consecutive fashion, all of which taking shape at the World’s Greatest Dirt Track - Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 15 sprint car, kicked-off Kings Royal week at The Big E with the #LetsRaceTwo make-up program on Wednesday evening, July 17. Charging ahead from the outside of row two, the eventual victory was convincing, allowing Schatz to officially sweep #LetsRaceTwo weekend in 2019.

Although forced to settle with a runner-up finish during the Jokers Wild program on Thursday, July 18, Donny Schatz quickly responded and marched his way back to victory lane on Friday night at Eldora Speedway, this time claiming the Knight Before The Kings Royal title worth $12,000. The victory bumped Schatz’ total to six in 2019; his third Eldora Speedway victory in four starts dating back to the #LetsRaceTwo opener in early May.

Like Wednesday, the Friday night triumph was convincing, eventually leading all 30 circuits from the pole position while holding off pressure from Jason Johnson Racing’s David Gravel and tenth-starting Logan Schuchart.

Despite falling short of obtaining a fourth consecutive Kings Royal crown, Schatz’ performance on Saturday night at The Big E was nothing short stout, eventually finishing sixth during an unprecedented, $175,000-to-win main event after starting second on the grid.

The Fargo, North Dakota-native battled with the frontrunners for most of the 40-lap distance, not falling outside of the top-five until the closing circuits.

“It’s not the overall outcome we wanted, but it was still a solid week for our team,” Donny Schatz expressed, who owns five Kings Royal titles overall. “We were in a perfect position to accomplish our goal. Regardless, we’ll put this behind us and move forward. We have a busy week ahead so hopefully we can put our notes to good use and perform well at Lernerville and Williams Grove.”

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their quest toward an 11th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship this Tuesday night, July 23, at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania. The coveted Silver Cup is on the line awarding a top prize equalling $25,000, a title Schatz has won six times.

Following his trip to Lernerville, Donny Schatz will trek east and prepare for a two-day stint at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, on Friday and Saturday, July 26 & 27. Chasing a total winner’s share posted at $28,000, the annual Summer Nationals will takeover Williams Grove Speedway headlines during the coming weekend. Friday night action will award an $8,000 payday, while Saturday’s finale boasts a $20,000 winner’s share.

Sammy Swindell Teaming Up With Steward and Brown for 360 Knoxville Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (July 22, 2019) - Sammy Swindell has locked down a ride for the 29th annual My Place Hotels 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank.

Swindell is teaming up with Terry Steward and Scott Brown during the marquee event at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, Aug. 1-3. Swindell's preliminary night is currently scheduled for Aug. 1.

"They have been in racing for a long time," he said. "Gary Wright drove for them for quite a few years. I've known the guys for quite a while. They let me borrow a motor for the first two 360 Nationals I raced and then I had it when I won the Short Track Nationals with the Big Game car in 2013."

The team will invade Knoxville Raceway this Saturday to compete in the 360 division as a tune-up prior to the 360 Knoxville Nationals.

"Little things are different and you have to get the breaks during the night," said Swindell, who has two career starts with the team that both occurred in November 2017. "I know we'll have a competitive car. Doing it this way where we have a weekend up there before the 360 Nationals will be good."

Swindell won the 360 Knoxville Nationals in 2016, making him only the second driver to win both the 360 and 410 Knoxville Nationals.

He has five top-five finishes during the event, which ranks tied for sixth.

Brian Brown Highlights Four-Race Weekend at Eldora Speedway With Top 10

Inside Line Promotions - ROSSBURG, Ohio (July 22, 2019) - Brian Brown produced a top 10 to highlight four World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races at Eldora Speedway last week.

July 17 - Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 2 (1); Dash: 6 (6); Feature: 9 (6).

"We unloaded really good and had good car speed," Brown said. "That's what you hope for when you do your prerace homework. We weren't as good as we needed to be in the heat, but we made the dash. The dash draws haven't been good to us this year so hopefully we'll get some good draws later in the year to even out the scoreboard. The way we look at it is even if you do draw the worst number it gives you another opportunity to learn more by being in the dash. In the feature when the track went from 13.5 to 15.5 seconds and we lost our air speed we had trouble getting into the track. We salvaged a top 10 though."

July 18 - Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio - Qualifying: 10; Heat race: 3 (4); Feature: 22 (14).

"We didn't qualify as well, but we made it into the main event through the heat race," Brown said. "We were running in that 12th range and blew a right rear tire and got into the fence. It tore a bunch of stuff up."

July 19 - Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio - Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 1 (2); Dash: 6 (6); Feature: 13 (11).

"Hats off to Chad, Nate and my dad," Brown said. "We decided to bring a different style of Maxim down for Friday and see if we could make it better. We qualified well, won the heat and drew the worst number in the bucket for the dash. In the feature we didn't have the speed to pass cars. We could hold our own, but it wasn't like we were going to drive through the field."

July 20 - Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio - Qualifying: 23; Heat race: 6 (3); B Main: 14 (17).

"Our first lap was good enough for 23rd quick and we blew a tire on our second lap of qualifying," Brown said. "That set us up in a pretty good spot though starting third in a heat. The guy on the pole didn't get going well and we were waiting to go. By the time we got to turn one we were running fifth. We weren't good enough to dig ourselves back out. That buried us in the B Main. We passed a few cars and that was all it wrote for our Kings Royal."

UP NEXT - Friday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn.; Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa; and Sunday at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions

"It's an awesome weekend," Brown said. "They are three good tracks for us with the All Stars in town. Jackson is a track we've had some success at. We just ran sixth at the Jackson Nationals. We've had success at Knoxville all year and Sunday we're excited to get to 34 Raceway, where we've won races."

Kerry Madsen Posts Top-10 Performance at Kings Royal

Inside Line Promotions - ROSSBURG, Ohio (July 22, 2019) - Kerry Madsen recorded his best Kings Royal finish since 2015 last Saturday when he capped four straight nights at Eldora Speedway with a 10th-place run.

It marked the Big Game Motorsports' driver's eighth top 10 as well as his 10th consecutive A Main start during the marquee World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event.

"I wish it was just starting again," Madsen said. "We really got a handle on the race car and by the end of the weekend the motors were running well."

The action began on Wednesday for the KI Crossbows backed team. Madsen qualified eighth quickest in his group and placed fourth in a heat race to lock into the 15th starting position.

"We got a bad start, but then we started coming on," he said. "The main power steering line burst so that was a DNF."

Madsen battled mechanical woes throughout Thursday's event.

"We went out to qualify and the motor laid down so we qualified at the back," he said. "We couldn't fight our way back. We didn't find the issue until the next day so we really lost a whole night over that."

The team improved on Friday, timing in fifth quickest in their group, placing fourth in a heat race and winning the Last Chance Showdown. Madsen then rallied from 19th to 14th in the A Main.

"We made some progress," he said. "I'd have liked to get further up. We weren't bad, but we needed to make more progress."

The weekend concluded on Saturday with the running of the $175,000-to-win Kings Royal. Madsen timed in 22nd quickest before he won a heat race from the third starting position.

"I had a great qualifying time," he said. "It was quicker than what I wanted to do. Then we had a great heat race."

Madsen lined up on the inside of the second row for the main event and ran inside the top five for most of the race.

"We had a great race," he said. "We restarted fifth with 15 laps to go. I got the worst imaginable restart and pretty much came out 10th. I was on the inside and got boxed in. It was like the whole world went by me. That was pretty disappointing. I thought we had a podium car. That was a bit of a heartbreaker."

Madsen finished 10th.

"We gained a lot," he said. "If we could have unloaded Wednesday like we did on Saturday we would have been much further ahead. We have four more races this week so hopefully we can start out stronger."

Madsen will compete with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions on Thursday at Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis.; on Friday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn.; on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa; and on Sunday at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa.

Sammy Swindell Leads Swindell SpeedLab Team to Top 10 at Kings Royal

Inside Line Promotions - ROSSBURG, Ohio (July 22, 2019) - Saturday was a special night for the Swindell Family.

Sammy Swindell guided the Swindell SpeedLab backed team owned by Kevin and Jordan Swindell to a seventh-place finish during the famed Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway.

"Overall, I think if you would have told me last Wednesday that I was going to run seventh I would have been alright with that," Kevin Swindell said. "When we did this, to me as much as it was about being successful, it was about putting him in those situations and giving him a good shot. Being able to have the whole moment of everything and prerace and having him enjoy it was the biggest thing. So much of the time over the years even when he's had good runs it hasn't been fun for him. I'm trying to make him enjoy it again and that was the biggest part."

It was a strong run that capped a busy weekend of learning. It began on Thursday as Sammy Swindell qualified eighth quickest before he advanced from third to second place in a heat race. A sixth-place finish in a dash preceded an 18th-place outing in the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series main event.

"The first night we qualified pretty good and had a good heat to get us into the dash," he said. "We drew the pole, but Kevin hasn't run his car at places where the air is as bad as it was. I made a couple of changes to the car and I didn't like it. It just got us off for the main event. I talked him into getting the car way too tight and a couple of things we did just wasn't quite right."

A bad pill draw doomed the team on Friday.

"We were the last one in the first group in qualifying," Sammy Swindell said. "We qualified 19th and that buried us. We passed two cars in the heat and the C Main. We got up to third, but they only took two."

It clicked better on Saturday during the Kings Royal as the team qualified 32nd quickest, which garnered the pole position for the final heat race. Swindell led the distance to earn the win and the pole position for the 40-lap main event.

"We didn't get to run a feature with a full fuel tank to go off for Saturday night," he said. "We didn't want to be too tight and we wound up being too free. It was good for the first 10 laps, but I could tell on the second lap that we were going to struggle. Being in front I didn't know what the pace was behind us and that's one of the disadvantages of being in the front. You don't know if the track changes or the line changes. (Logan) Schuchart got by and I tried to run the line he was running, but we weren't faster. We kind of hung on there. I was too loose to get in and across the corner and stay on the gas like the other guys. That's a part of it."

Swindell led the first 10 laps before he finished seventh. It marked his 18 th career top 10 during the event.

"For us to get as close as we did on our second attempt to run a main event was pretty remarkable," he said. "If we could have started where we finished we would have been a whole lot better off, but that's what we had to go through in that amount of time. We were way better on Saturday, but we needed to be better than six other cars. I think that's remarkable that the guys that have run all year and most of the teams that have been together for most years, to even be in the ballpark with how the cars are now is remarkable. I don't think people understand how touchy they can be. It will help us for when we run together in the future."

QUICK RESULTS -

July 18 - Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio - Qualifying: 8; Heat race: 2 (3); Dash: 6 (1); Feature: 18 (11).

July 19 - Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio - Qualifying: 19; Heat race: 5 (7); C Main: 3 (5).

July 20 - Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio - Qualifying: 32; Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 7 (1).

Kaleb Johnson has Weekend Dampened by Misfortune and Rain

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (July 22, 2019) - Racing in two classes unfortunately meant double the misfortune for Kaleb Johnson last Friday when he battled a challenging evening at Jackson Motorplex.

Johnson's opening heat race in his 305ci sprint car appeared to be an omen for the night for both that class and with the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series 360 sprint cars.

"We had a caution a few laps into our heat race," Johnson said. "I noticed going into turn three during the yellow that my car suddenly got really hard to steer. I tried jerking the wheel back and forth a bit on the frontstretch and it didn't get any better. I decided it wasn't worth the risk driving it that way and pulled in. I figured it was something with the right front hub and that's what it was. The seal had gone bad. It was an unfortunate deal, but stuff like that happens."

With repairs to the car made, Johnson later pushed off to start the feature.

"We didn't really touch anything else on the car," he said. "But for some reason it wouldn't fire and we weren't able to start the race. That was a bit disappointing, but it's just been that kind of year."

Johnson's 360 heat race went better. He started and finished fifth.

"It was kind of tough to pass in the heat race," he said. "The humidity seemed to draw the moisture up. It's tough to prepare the track for that. But we were able to maintain our starting spot and make the feature. That was our main goal entering the night - since there were 39 cars there - along with having the car in one piece and being able to go to Knoxville the following night."

Johnson rolled off 20th on the A Main starting grid.

"About two or three laps in I got ahead of Wade Nygaard on the outside of turns one and two," he said. "I honestly figured I had him cleared going down the backstretch. I tried going low into turn three when I felt contact with my left rear and his right front, spinning me sideways and unfortunately getting him upside down.

"I thought I had cleared him and some others said I had cleared him. Maybe it was just one of those racing deals. I certainly didn't intentionally turn down on him. That's not the way I race. It was a bad deal for both of us. Our damage wasn't too extreme, but it was enough to keep us from continuing."

A chance for redemption the following night at Knoxville Raceway was washed out by rain shortly before the cars were about to take the track.

Johnson and his team are looking for better fortune this week when they race their 360 at Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa, on Tuesday and at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday sandwiched around 305 competition at Jackson Motorplex on Friday.

QUICK RESULTS -

July 19 - Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn. (305 sprint car) - Heat race: DNF (7); Feature: DNS (20).

July 19 - Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn. (360 sprint car) - Heat race: 5 (5); Feature: DNF (20).

Scelzi Bounces Back to Finish 12th at Howard Kaeding Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA- With issues hampering him before Friday night’s 360 feature, Dominic Scelzi would overcome mid race contact to finish 12th during Saturday night’s HK Classic finale with Roth Motorsports.

“It was a pretty trying weekend for our race team, but we fought hard and overcame some adversity,” Scelzi said. “Friday night we weren’t able to start the feature due to mechanical issues, and Saturday we had endured some contact while running in the Top-Five and had to come from the back.”

With mag issues keeping him from starting Friday night’s feature event, Dominic Scelzi and the Roth Motorsports team turned their attention to Saturday night’s King of the West event back at Ocean Speedway.

Putting a tough Friday behind them, Scelzi would get off to a very strong start to the night as he timed the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co. entry in fifth quickest in time trials.

Finishing fourth in his heat race, Scelzi would miss out on the regular Dash but would find himself in the Dash for Cash where he picked up a second place finish.

Moving into the 30-lap feature event, the Fresno, CA driver would take the green flag from the seventh starting position. When the green flag dropped, Scelzi would mash the throttle pedal and find himself in the fourth position as he battled with the likes of Justin Sanders and Jonathan Allard.

Contact while battling for position on the 24th lap would leave Scelzi stalled in turn four needing to go to the work area for repairs.

Able to rejoin the field, Scelzi would get all he could in the final laps as he would finish 12th when all was said and done.

“Thanks to Dennis and Teresa Roth for all they do for myself and this race team,” Scelzi said. “Tough weekend, but we will bounce back and try again this weekend.”

Sanders 4th at HK Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA: Competing during both nights of the Howard Kaeding Classic over the weekend at Ocean Speedway, Justin Sanders would finish ninth in 360 action on Friday night before recording a fourth place finish with the King of the West Series on Saturday night.

“Friday was a little frustrating,” Justin Sanders said. “I haven’t been that bad there in a long time, but we went to work for Saturday’s KWS show and ran a ton better.”

Clawing his way to a Top-10 by way of his ninth place finish with the Ocean Sprints on Friday night aboard the JSR No. 17 machine, Sanders dusted the potent No. 121 off to go to work with the KWS on Saturday night.

Going out late to time in, the Aromas, CA pilot would get all he could out of his North County Plastering/Andy’s Construction/Yuba Sutter Aviation backed machine as he ended up eighth on the speed charts.

Working his way up to a second place finish in heat race action, Sanders would miss out on a berth into the all important Dash by just one marker, and it would put him ninth on the starting grid for the 30-lap HK Classic feature event.

On a racy Ocean Speedway, Sanders used the countless laps he has turned there over the years to his advantage as he methodically worked his way forward and reeled in the lead pack.

Getting into fourth, Sanders would actually get into third on a restart but another caution would negate his efforts and put him back into fourth. Battling with Willie Croft late in the race for the final spot on the podium, Sanders would be unable to make any of his pass attempts stick as he capped the night off with a nice charge up for fourth.

“It was a busy weekend, and I have to thank everyone that helps me out on both of these cars,” Sanders said. “Great to fight back from a tough Friday night and run fourth on Saturday.”

Finishing fourth in the Dash, Croft would grid the field from the second row of the 30-lap HK Classic feature event as he is in search of his first KWS win of the 2019 season.

When the green flag dropped, Croft got a great jump as he rode the cushion from his second row starting position to a the second spot in the running order as he chased after early leader, Billy Aton.

Stalking Aton, Croft would come under fire from Shane Golobic for position as the leaders got into traffic. Slipping back to third, Croft would stay in the hunt as the leaders would continue battle through slower traffic.

As the battle up front picked up, Croft would actually be scored as far back as fifth at the race’s halfway point, but would surge back up to third with just 10 markers left in the race.

“It wasn’t the night we were hoping for,” Cox said. “We ended up hurting the frame after getting pushed into the infield wall, and it ended our night really before it got started.”

Going out first in qualifying time trials, the track would continue to get better and better with each car, and Cox would end up 11th quickest on the speed chart aboard the Michael David Winery/Five Window Beer Company/MDW Sports backed No. 31c machine.

Finishing fourth in heat race competition, Cox would transfer into the feature event where he would roll off the starting grid from the 11th position in the 25 lap feature event.

With his car on the tight side during the opening laps, Tiner would do what he could to weather the storm as he waited for the car to come to him late in the race when it mattered the most.

Moving into second just past the race’s halfway point, Tiner would continue to stalk Forsberg who was now out front.

Getting close in traffic, a couple of late stoppages would put the leaders in open track and Tiner couldn’t do anything with Forsberg and closed his night out with a second place finish.

“It was a pleasure to drive the C&M Motorsports car, and it goes to show how strong their program is,” Tiner said. “I am a terrible qualifier and Saturday I managed to time in quick time and really set our night up. We came up one spot short, but still a lot of fun up on the hill.”

Timing the F&F Racing No. x1 machine in sixth quickest in qualifying time trials, Forsberg would race the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed machine to a second place finish in heat race action.

Having some help via a pair of top qualifiers winning their heat races, Forsberg would snatch a spot in the redraw where the four pill put him in the second row of the feature event.

Following a wreck on the initial start, the second attempt would see Forsberg get a great jump as he moved into second and chased after the early leader, Jodie Robinson.

While Robinson was stout out front, Forsberg would give chase but could not get by until the yellow flew on the 13th lap.

PLYMOUTH, WIS.] July 22, 2019-The Miller Family Motorsports teams have been busy capturing top ten finishes and heat race wins. The brothers made a stop at the Outagamie Fairgrounds in Seymour, WI for the MSA showcase on Friday, July 12th.

Justin went 5th to 2nd in heat 1 and Adam started 2nd finished 2nd in heat 2. Both teams made the A-main event!

The line-up was posted and Adam made the invert and would start 3rd and Justin would start 9th. The 22 MSA cars were set to take line up and take the green for the 25-lap A-main.

Adam was a rocket from the start and would battle early on for the top spots while Justin was battling through the field from 9th. As the checkers waved, Adam would come home with another top five finish on the season finishing 3rd! Justin crosses the checkers in 6th and scored another top 10 finish for the year.

Both of the brothers grew up watching Randy and were excited to have made the A-main event to run in his honor.

As the green flag dropped, the track proved to be a place where the top-side would be fast. Adam and Justin worked and worked along-side 22 other fast 360 sprints. The entire field was pretty balanced so making smart moves at the right time were crucial. At the checkers, Adam would come home 6th and Justin 9th.

The double headers continued into the following week as the teams got ready for Saturday’s racing program at PDTR but due to extensive heat, the races were canceled however the brothers still were able to race on Sunday at the historic Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, WI.

Adam jumped out to the early lead and was able to capture the victory; this victory marks his second heat race win on the year! Justin finished 5th and by doing so made the invert for the nights A-main where he started 3rd.

Both teams were able to watch B-main action and make changes to the cars to get ready for the A-main. Adam would start 11th and Justin 3rd.

The field was ready to go after they did their four-wide salute to the fans and at the green the brothers were hammer-down. Justin battled for the 2nd spot throughout the race but was unable to secure the spot and he would capture another top five finish by finishing 3rd!Adam after finding himself turned around facing the infield, worked his way from having to restart at the tail of the field to finish 10th!

Next Two Wednesdays Feature HUGE Events At Kutztown's Action Track USA

Rained Out Dick Tobias Classic This Week; USAC National Midgets On July 31

Kutztown, PA (July 21) - The next two Wednesdays are, arguably, the biggest two weeks at Championship Energy Action Track USA since Rich Tobias and Doug Rose took the helm in 2013.

One driver could go home with $7,000 this Wednesday, July 24, if he can sweep both main events that will be contested by the USAC All Pro SpeedSTRs. In addition, there will be qualifying races and features for the Hyper Racing EVO Injection 600 Sprints and the All Star Slingshots. And the Slingshot headliner is the annual Kutztown Komet 100 that honors the memory of the late Freddy Adam. The SpeedSTRs will take part in the (twice) rained out Dick Tobias Classic, then come back and compete in heat races, a B-Main, and a 30-lap feature! The Dick Tobias Classic pays a whopping $5,000 to win, and the regularly scheduled 30-lapper offers the winner a $2,000 payday.

And here's the best part...you get to witness all of the fantastic four-wheeled mayhem described above for the regular admission price of just $14 for Adults, $12 for Senior Citizens (anyone 62 and older); $5 for youth between the ages of six and 12; and children under the age of six are free!

Pit gates will open at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, with the grandstand gates swinging open at 5:00. Warm-ups begins a few minutes after 6:00 and qualifying races follow immediately after the hot lap sessions.

On May 19, all of the SpeedSTR qualifying activity was complete before the rains came and washed out the 75-lap Dick Tobias Classic. It was rained out again on June 19, but will finally be made up this Wednesday, and then the SpeedSTRs come back with a full program of qualifying and a second main event - at a distance of 30-laps.

All of the past winners of the Dick Tobias Classic are locked in to the starting field this Wednesday. Already qualified are: Rick Eckert (2013), Brad Brightbill (2014), and Tim Buckwalter (2018), who will attempt to win their second 75-lap Tobias Classic. No one, however, has had more success in the lucrative long distance event than three-time and defending SpeedSTR point champion Billy Pauch Jr. "The Kid's Kid" has triumphed in the race dedicated to the memory of Dick "Toby" Tobias on three occasions (2015, and twice in 2017 - the race was rained out in '16 so it was held two times the following season).

Wednesday, July 31 marks the first-ever appearance by the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Championship Series at the oval located on the Kutztown Fairgrounds. Joining the mighty Midgets will be opening night for this year's Hyper Racing 600 Speedweek presented by 600cc Performance, making this a non-wing doubleheader that can't be missed!

Defending USAC National Midget Champion Logan Seavey and current point leader Tyler Courtney will lead a talented and aggressive group of competitors to the Keystone State for PA Midget Week. The race at Action Track USA will be the second of five events for the wildly competitive division, and the Kutztown event has the USAC standouts salivating with anticipation. A contingent of local drivers are preparing to take on the Midwest hot shoes, and fans have circled this race on their motorsports calendars since it was announced last winter.

Pit gates will open at 4 p.m., with grandstand gates swinging open at 5:00 on July 31st. Heat in the motors, warm-ups, and qualifying gets underway at 6:15. Belfor Property Restoration and Storm Chassis are backing the USAC Midgets appearance, while Rodota Excavating and Trucking is sponsoring the 600 Speedweek portion of the event. The All Star Slingshots are also on the menu of high speed adventure; the top point earners will be invited to run a "feature only" format.

July 24 is your chance to see if one driver can pocket $7,000 after a total of 105 laps of clay spraying SpeedSTR action, plus 600 Sprints and Slingshots! The very next week is highlighted by the first-ever Action Track USA visit by the USAC National Midgets! The month of July ends with a pair of monstrous events in Kutztown!

Below is the starting lineup for this week's 75-lap Dick Tobias Classic...

1. Pat Bealer

2. Matt Westfall

3. Tim Buckwalter

4. Brad Brightbill

RAIN HITS DURING HEAT RACE ACTION WASHING OUT THE REMAINDER OF THE PROGRAM FOR THE 6TH TIME THIS SEASON AT SHARON
by Mike Leone

Hartford, OH July 20, 2019 Despite a very small chance of an isolated thunderstorm on Saturday night, Sharon Speedway was in the wrong place at the wrong time as a storm developed and took direct aim at the track during the heat races and washed out the remainder of the program. It marked the sixth time this season that rain has hit while race teams and fans have been on the grounds.

All pit bands will be good for any remaining Menards "Super Series" event, while grandstand rain checks will be good for the next two Saturday night events. The 32 HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modified drivers and 27 Gibson Insurance Agency Stock Cars in the weekly divisions that were on hand will receive 10 show-up points. A make-up date for the Outlaw Mod "Bickerstaff Cup" Series event is possible.

Chad Ruhlman and Brian Woodhall won the RUSH Sprint Car heats. Randy White and Stone Lapcevich captured the Junior Sprint heats for kids with a record car count of 15. Jackson Humanic won the first Stock Car heat race, while rain came during the second one.

Coming up this Saturday night (July 27) will be the return of the "410" Sprint Cars in a $3,000 to-win Menards "Super Series" event along with the Stock Cars, Elite Econo Mod Series, RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and Junior Sprints for kids. It's Texas Roadhouse Night with racing at 7 p.m.

Then on Tuesday, July 30 will be the Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds racing for $7,500 and they will be joined by the RUSH Sprint Cars. Predator Trucking and Stackhouse Construction are presenting the event. Advanced tickets are on sale at SharonSpeedway.com.

Horstman wins Tim Hogan Challenge from tail, Bowersock and Conover bag wins at Limaland.

July 19, 2019
Lima, OH

by Gerry Keysor

The hot weather couldn't stop the great racing at Limaland as Stolly Insurance Group presented the 22nd UNOH Anniversary event. No. 17 Jared Horstman picked up his 5th K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invader feature win of 2019, while No. 95J Jerry Bowersock grabbed his first Limaland victory of the season in the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds. No. 7C Jordan Conover picked up his 3rd Bud Thunderstock A Main win of the season.

Kicking off the night were the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders with their 25 lap A Main. Adding some additional incentive to the feature, NRA promoter and Tim Hogan Carpet of Lima owner Ron Hammons offered a $1000 bonus to the front row starters if they elected to start from the tail and could win the feature. Both No. 11 Tim Allison, and No. 28H Hud Horton passed on the chance, so Hammons offered $500 if the drivers in the 2nd row would take the challenge. Cloverdale Ohio's Jared Horstman, who was scheduled to start 3rd told Hammons to make it $1000 and he would do it. A handshake sealed the deal and the feature was set. Allison and Horton led the field to green with Allison grabbing the early point. Allison, Horton and No. 22H Randy Hannagan battled for the lead for the first 2 laps before Horton would grab the point followed by Hannagan. All wyes were on Horstman, however, as he picked his way through the field, moving to 6th by lap 6, then 5th on lap 8. On lap 15, Horstman would find himself in the 3rd position with nearly a full straightaway separating him from the 2 leaders. Horstman caught a huge break on lap 16 when teammate Max Stambaugh rolled to a stop on the backstretch, bringing out the yellow flag, and bunching the leaders up. On the restart, Hannagan would get by Horton in turns 3 and 4 and seemed to be pulling away, but Horstman would clear Horton and as he closed on the leader, Hannagan spun in turn 2 and nearly collected Horstman, and ended in the infield, clear of the racing groove, so the green flag stayed out. Horstman would power to the checkered flag over Horton, Allison, No. 18 Todd Heuerman, and No. 18B Jimmy Stinson

Next up were the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds with No. 9C Troy Catterend, and No. 95J Jerry Bowersock making up the front row. Bowersock wasted no time grabbing the point in the Best Performance Motorsports sponsored No. 95J. Caution would wave on lap 3 for No 5 and No 19B Brandon Ordway tangling in turn 2. On the restart, Bowersock would continue to lead while No 10L Nathan Loney, Catterene and No. 3W Dylan Woodling would race 3 wide for 2nd. Woodlin would grab the 2nd spot until lap 7, as Loney would make his way past and set his sights on the race leader. By lap 11, Loney would start peeking to the inside of Bowersock and the pair would race side by side until lap 15, when Bowersock would pull away for good and win over Loney, No 65 Todd Sherman who started 12th, Woodling, and No. 22T Tony Anderson.

In Bud Thunderstock feature action, No. 22T Tony Anderson, and No 57 Jeff Jessup would bring the field to the green flag. Anderson would lead laps 1 and 2 with No. 7C Jordan Conover, and No. 463 Daniel Sanchez right on his rear bumper. Conover would power to the lead and be slowed only once on lap 4 for caution involving No. 1W Mark Wooten. Conover would dominate the rest of the feature, winning by a full straightaway over Anderson, Sanchez, Jessup, and No 7W Dan Wooten.

Limaland Motorsports Park is back in action on Friday July 26th when K&L Ready Mix presents the K&L Ready Mix Clash, featuring the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders, Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds, and Bud Thunderstocks. General Admission is $12 for ages 16 and older, $6 for ages 11-15, and kids 10 and under are admitted FREE. Pit passes for all ages are $30. Grandstand Gates Open at 5:00pm, Pit Gates Open 4:30pm–8:00pm, Warm Ups @ 6:30pm, Racing @ 7:30pm.

Rick Ferkel Classic to feature FAST 410 sprints, 305 sprints and mini-sprints at Waynesfield

By Brian Liskai

WAYNESFIELD, Ohio - After a highly successful event honoring one of Ohio's favorite racing sons - Jack Hewitt - Waynesfield Raceway Park will continue that tradition with the Rick Ferkel Classic on Friday, Aug. 2.

Racing will be the NAPA Auto Parts FAST 410 Sprints vying for $5,000 to win ($400 to start the A-main) along with the 305 sprints battling for $1,000 to win thanks to Rich Farmer at NAPA Auto Parts. Also making their appearance at "The Field" will be the AMSA Lightening Mini Sprints.

"I can't thank all the race fans and teams enough for the huge turn-out for the Jack Hewitt Classic. It was a record crowd for Waynesfield and a great way to honor a true racing legend. I want to thank Jack for his support, advice and how great he was with the fans. I hope we get the same response to honor the Ohio Traveler, one of the best ambassadors of the sport out there," said Shane Helms, Waynesfield Raceway Park Promoter.

"We know we have some things we need to adjust to make the experience better for our great fans. Believe me we have had many discussions and are making changes. Again, I can't thank everyone enough for the support we have gotten. We will continue to work hard to make improvements and have great events at Waynesfield," Helms added.

Helms promoted the first Rick Ferkel Classic at Atomic Speedway near Chillicothe, Ohio in 2018. In the event sanctioned by the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobil 1, Cole Duncan scored the win.

Ferkel, one of the original "outlaws" is enshrined in the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum. Ferkel, who lived in nearby Findlay and Tiffin, Ohio most of his life, recorded nearly 400 sprint car wins during his driving career. Known for traveling wherever there was a "big" money show across the country, Ferkel became known as "the Ohio Traveler" and was always a fan favorite because of his friendly demeanor. Ferkel currently helps his son, Ricky, who competes in a sprint car in Michigan.

There have been two events in 2019 at Waynesfield Raceway Park. Indiana's Justin Peck scored the FAST 410 win in April while Shawn Dancer took the NRA 360 sprint victory. The Jack Hewitt Classic on July 3 saw Cody Gardner score his first ever sprint car win with the BOSS non-wing series while Cale Conley scored the FAST 410 winged win and Max Stambaugh claimed the NRA victory.

Tickets for the Rick Ferkel Classic are $18 for adults (11 and up); $16 for senior citizens (62 and up); with kids 10 and under admitted free. Pit passes will be $35. Gates will open at 5 p.m. with racing underway at 7:45 p.m.

Carson McCarl – Stuck in the Middle

Dallas, TX (July 18, 2019) – It was another strong finish at Knoxville Raceway for current 360 point leader Carson McCarl, as he scored his second podium of the season last Saturday. Now it’s time for one of the most crucial weekends of the year, as it will be double features for the 360 class this Saturday night!

Carson kicked off the night going out late in qualifying and was unhappy with the result. “I was a little disappointed with our qualifying effort,” said McCarl. “I used the bottom and that was a bad choice, I definitely should have been up top, which left us 10th.”

After starting fourth in his heat, Carson was able to charge to a runner-up finish, racking up enough points to earn a starting spot on the inside of the third row for the night’s A-main. At the start of the feature, Carson struggled to find his groove. “I just wasn’t really able to get things going early on,” said Carson. “It just didn’t feel like we could gain on anyone at the start of the race.”

A mid-race caution would prove the turning point for McCarl, as he would shoot from fifth to 3rd on the restart using a unique line. “Going into turn one on the restart I was able to run a line that was one up from the bottom and get up into the top three,” said Carson. “I was basically putting my left front about a foot from their right rears and it worked perfectly.”

The same line would be effective in helping Carson gain the runner-up position a few laps later, getting past Ryan Giles. “I was able to get by Giles not too long after I had moved into third,” said Carson. “Part of me was thinking that I could get up and challenge for the lead, but that didn’t last long.”

While the middle lane allowed McCarl to wheel the Jetco Electric #27 to second, he would end up holding the line a bit too long. “I definitely stuck to the middle for too long in the race,” said Carson. “It went away some in the closing laps and Jamie Ball was able to get by us, but it was still a podium and I can’t complain about that!”

Coming out of the weekend still atop the 360 point standings at the Knoxville Raceway, Carson is looking forward to this Saturday where he’ll have two features to try and increase his lead. “It feels great to be where we are in the points at this time and I’m excited to get out there on Saturday and hopefully replicate the type of finishes we’ve been having lately,” said McCarl.

Be sure to make it out to Knoxville this Saturday night to watch Carson go for the win twice in one night at the famed half-mile!

TKS Motorsports – Putting It All Together

Dallas, TX (July 18, 2019) – Last weekend saw some ups and downs for Austin McCarl and the TKS Motorsports team as they competed in the double 410 features at Knoxville Raceway. In the end, the team walked away with a top five and a top ten, leaving them locked in an intense point battle at the top of the 410 standings!

Saturday night started off rough for the Troy & Tammy Renfro-owned team, as they would find themselves in 20th after qualifying came to a close. “We really buried ourselves after qualifying,” said Austin. “On lap one, I tried to run the bottom and completely missed the line, then came back on the second lap and went high like everyone else, but just didn’t hit it quite right, so not a great result.”

While qualifying didn’t go the team’s way, the great car count on-hand aided the team by providing them a good starting position in their heat race. “Having enough cars at the track on Saturday to have four heats helped us out a lot,” said Troy. “On a night with only three heats, we would have found ourselves outside the invert, but luckily we got to start on the outside of the front row Saturday.”

Austin would take advantage of the front row starting spot and race to a win in his heat, earning enough points to comfortably lock the Casey’s General Stores/Midwest Basement Systems #2KS into the night’s first A-main. “After my struggles in time trials, it felt great to go out and run away from a good group of racers, including Rico [Abreu], in the heat,” said McCarl.

Rolling off for A-main number one in 13th, McCarl would find his hands full early on a tricky racetrack and end up climbing into the top ten, finishing 9th. “The track was fast and more like it was much of last season with a treacherous cushion,” said Austin. “I felt like we could have made it farther forward, but I jumped the cushion a few times and with the race going caution-free it’s tough to run down guys that are as tough as those who finished in front of us.”

Things would go a bit better for the TKS team in the second A-main of the night, as they would come home fourth after starting on the third row. “After a bit of a tough outing during the main part of last Saturday’s show, it felt good to grab a top five in the makeup feature,” said Troy. “I think we had a car that definitely could have landed us on the podium, but it was another race that went caution-free after a complete restart.”

With the car performing well, McCarl noted that it was some poor decisions on his part that kept him off the podium in the final race of the night. “The invert was zero, so all the fast guys were in front of us,” said Austin. “With that being the case, I needed to be on top of my game, but I guessed wrong on my line a couple of times and got caught behind the #09 [Matt Juhl] for too long.

Finishing the night with a top ten and a top five left the team feeling good about their night, but knowing that there was still room to improve. “The car was strong all night,” said McCarl. “We’re going to come back next weekend and hopefully put everything together and get our first win of the season.”

The TKS team will be back at the Knoxville Raceway this Saturday night looking for a strong finish and to close the gap at the top of a tight points battle!

Action Sprint Tour Heads Back to Ohsweken for Northern Summer Nationals on MavTV on July 23
 

By Clayton Johns

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (July 18, 2019) – The Action Sprint Tour’s busy month of July continues when the series heads to its birthplace at Ohsweken Speedway on Tuesday, July 23 for the $1,000 CAD-to-win Northern Summer Nationals. The race will air live on MavTV Canada as part of the fourth episode of All North Racing powered by Pinty’s. Race time is 7:30pm with hot laps scheduled for 7:00pm. Adult advanced reserved tickets are just $30 and can be purchased online, along with reserved camping spaces, at www.ohswekenspeedway.ca.

Entering the sixth event of the season, Josh Hansen of Beamsville, Ont. sits on top of the Action Sprint Tour standings. His 30-point advantage is courtesy of two wins and two second-place finishes in four starts. The 360 Sprint Car rookie is proving he hasn’t forgotten how to perform when he returns to his roots and has been the car to beat each night he unloads the JNE Recovery No.88h.

Currently second in the standings is Liam Martin of Binbrook, Ont. The teenage driver of the No.29 has been strong on tour, gathering a win and three top-five finishes on tour this season. Martin scored a victory at Southern Ontario Motor Speedway and has continued to build momentum after scoring a third-place finish at Humberstone last Sunday night.

Caledonia’s Ryan Hunsinger has moved into third in the championship standings on the strength of his third top-five finish last time out at Humberstone. Hunsinger, who is by far the most experienced driver on the Action Sprint Tour’s roster, continues to challenge for a podium finish each time he unloads his self-owned No.r52.

Two points back of Hunsinger is Jacob Dykstra. The Port Colborne, Ont. teenager finished an uncharacteristic 10th on Sunday at his hometown track and will be eager to add to his pair of top-five finishes when he returns to his weekly track with the tour.

Currently bookending the top-five is Beamsville’s Paul Klager. The former Mod Lite champion continues to enjoy a solid sophomore season in his No.1eh Crate Sprint Car. Klager has a trio of top-10 finishes, including two top-five results. He enters Tuesday’s race at Ohsweken 14 points back of Dykstra for fourth.

The points chase continues throughout the top-10 with the tour’s most recent winner, Steven Beckett sitting sixth in the standings. The Fonthill, Ont. driver’s victory at Humberstone was the first of his Sprint Car career after he also transitioned from Mod Lites. Beckett is currently just three points back of Klager for fifth.

Welland’s Blaine Barrow sits 13 points back of Beckett in seventh and 10 points ahead of eighth-place Jerry Hill. Glenn Styres Racing teammates Jesse McDonald and Spencer Davis round out the Action Sprint Tour’s current top-10.

Dominic Scelzi Records Fifth Triumph of the Season

Inside Line Promotions - PETALUMA, Calif. (July 18, 2019) - Dominic Scelzi hustled to his fifth victory of the season last Friday at Ocean Speedway, where he guided Roth Motorsports to the dash and main event triumph.

It was an efficient night for Scelzi, who qualified fourth quickest and placed second in a heat race. He made the dash and redrew the pole position.

"We timed in decent and went third to second in the heat," he said. "That wasn't good enough to get into the dash. However, someone who qualified better than us won his heat race, which got us into the dash."

The dash win gave Scelzi the pole for the main event.

"We were really good the first half of the race," he said. "As the race went on the cushion got quite a bit bigger. We got really, really tight. Cole (Macedo) and I went back and forth a couple of times for the lead around Lap 15 and Lap 16. We were able to stay in front of him. Cole slid me again in turns one and two and I turned it back under him. A yellow came out and we had a restart with two laps to go. Then Bud (Kaeding) slid me in turns one and two. I was lucky enough to be able to turn off the cushion and race him back and pick up the win."

Scelzi had to endure a handful of slide job attempts, but he maintained the top spot for his fifth win this season. He is only one victory away from tying his most trips to Victory Lane in a single season.

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday at Petaluma Speedway, which hosted a King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series event. Scelzi qualified fourth quickest, ended third in a heat race and finished where he started - fifth - in the dash.

"The track was locked down and hard to pass," he said. "We ran fifth throughout the feature and Ryan Bernal got caught up with a lapped car. That put me to fourth and I ran there. Nobody could pass. It was locked down and you never lifted the whole time."

Scelzi's fourth-place outing marked his 17th top five of the season.

He is scheduled to race for Roth Motorsports this Friday and Saturday at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif. Friday is a Civil War Sprint Car Series show and Saturday is a King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series event.

QUICK RESULTS -

July 12 - Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif. - Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 2 (3); Dash: 1 (1); Feature: 1 (1).

July 13 - Petaluma Speedway in Petaluma, Calif. - Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 3 (3); Dash: 5 (5); Feature: 4 (5).

Josh Schneiderman – Heat Waves & Wicked Cushions

Dallas, TX (July 18, 2019) – Josh Schneiderman and the Deuce Motorsports team competed in three A-mains last weekend. They walked away with a 12th at Lee County Speedway with the Sprint Invaders and a pair of 18th-placed finishes at Knoxville Raceway in what proved to be a hot and frustrating weekend for “The Professor.” The team will have the World of Wheels/Land Pride #49 back in action this Saturday night at the Knoxville Raceway!

Josh and the Deuce Motorsports team got their weekend started early with the Sprint Invaders at Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa. The early start got off to a bit of a sputter, as he would draw the absolute worst pill for his heat race lineup. “Well, we drew 50 out of 50 to start the night, so not the best way to get going,” said Josh. “It was a hot night, which is always hard when it comes to track prep, so we knew it was going to be a tough night.”

Rolling off on the outside of the fourth row in a stout heat, Schneiderman would work his way up enough to improve matters before the 25-lap main event. “We were able to go from 8th to fifth in our heat, which at least locked us into the main event without having to run the B,” said Josh. “The fields at Sprint Invaders shows have been solid this year and that makes it even more important to get a good pill draw, because that was one of the toughest heats I’ve been in with the Invaders.”

Finding himself on the eighth row of the A-main, “The Professor” would do his best to move his way up, but difficult track conditions made for a long night. “We were starting pretty deep in the feature and by that time the track had taken rubber, which made passing a bit tough,” said Schneiderman. “You had to wait for people to make a mistake to go for the pass and we ended up 12th with a car that felt capable of a better run.”

The team would continue to be on the wrong end of the pill draw at the beginning of Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway, going out late in qualifying. “We had another poor draw on Saturday,” said Josh. “However, we were able to lock down a pretty solid time against a good field of cars.”

Schneiderman’s time would place him on the outside pole for his heat race, where he’d also finish. “Our qualifying has been on the rise and that set us up with a good starting spot in our heat race,” said Josh. “The car was really good in the heat and we locked ourselves into the A-main with 35 cars at the track.”

Starting out 12th in the first feature of the night, Josh wasn’t happy with his performance. “We weren’t stellar in the first A-main,” said Schneiderman. “The cushion was wicked and the brakes faded, which caused us to fade to 18th. The car was solid, but the driver sucked; we should have finished better.”

While the Deuce team would have a second chance in the makeup feature at the end of the night, their night would end a tad early. “I was able to move into the top ten early in the makeup A-main after starting 12th again, but I caught the cushion wrong a few laps in and am shocked I was able to save it,” said Josh. “After that, I couldn’t get back in the groove and we ended up pulling off about ten laps in.”

Josh Schneiderman and the Deuce Motorsports team will be back at the Knoxville Raceway this Saturday night, as they continue to get their Land Pride/World of Wheels #49 tuned up for the fast approaching Knoxville Nationals!

Patriot Sprint Tour Prepares For Four Consecutive Nights In Canada

(Brockville, ON) In what is most likely the biggest weekly stretch of racing on the 2019 schedule for the A-Verdi Storage Containers Patriot Sprint Tour, drivers from all over the region will compete at three different race tracks in four nights beginning this Saturday night at the Brockville Ontario Speedway.

That and Sunday’s race at the Cornwall Motor Speedway will each pay $3,500 to win, with $300 just to qualify. The next two nights, the tour heads to the Ohsweken Speedway for the Northern Summer Nationals paying $5,000 to win and $400 to qualify. Arguably the best paying four day stretches of racing in all of North America!

On top of the great payouts put together by these Ontario race tracks and PST, a separate point fund has been put together that will crown our PST Canadian Champion, a program that started back in 2012 which began to reward drivers who traveled to our Canadian tracks on the schedule.

Brockville-Ontario, Cornwall, and Ohsweken have all been historic tracks on the Patriot Sprint Tour schedule over the years and it has produced some of the best racing all season.

This will be our 27th time at the Brockville Ontario Speedway dating back to 2004 when Rick Wilson scored the first ever win under the PST Banner. This Sunday will be our tenth time visiting the Cornwall Motor Speedway dating back to 2009 where it was Alain Bergeron picking up the win. This will also be our first time visiting the Cornwall Motor Speedway since 2017 as Mother Nature scored the win in 2018.

With the exception of Outlaw Speedway, no track has held more Patriot Sprint Tour Races than the Ohsweken Speedway as this Monday and Tuesday will be our 34th and 35th visit to the speedway, respectively. It also plays host to the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals that is held every September paying $10,000 to the winner! The first ever PST winner at the Ohsweken Speedway also happened to be Rick Wilson which occurred on September 24, 2004.

As mentioned before, a $1000 to win Canadian championship has been put together that will crown our 2019 North of the Border Champion. The PST Canada tour began in 2012 with Justin Barger winning the first ever series point bid. Other past PST-Canada championship drivers include; Steve Poirier, Jared Zimbardi, and Dylan Westbrook.

It is also important to mention that after the four day stretch of racing, the teams will have a quick turn around and begin preparing for the second annual Outlaw Summer Nationals in Dundee which pays $4,000 to win on Saturday, July 27.

Be sure to follow along all weekend by visiting patriotsprinttour.com and be liking ‘Patriot Sprint Tour’ on facebook. You can also follow @PatriotSprints on Instagram.

 

 

Podium for Covington at Grizzly Nationals

CG Motorsports-Glenpool, OK (July 17th, 2019) Matt Covington came home 3rd from 6th at the Grizzly Nationals on Friday night after his 2nd place run was halted by a blown tire on the final corner of Gallatin Speedway.

The 2-day event was shortened to Friday night only for the Lucas Oil National tour, after strong rains pelleted the speedway just before the start of hot laps on Saturday.

Friday, Covington took advantage of a pole position pill draw and won the heat race uncontested, earning a spot in the night’s re-draw. He pulled the 6th pill for the feature.

With only one stoppage and red flag in the beginning of the feature, Covington worked his way forward early, making it to 3rd as the rubber started to lay. Pressuring as the field caught traffic, Matt was able to move into 2nd and attempt to run down the leader. Unfortunately, by then, Sam Herfertepe Jr. already had a sizeable lead. Unable to catch him, Covington held the runner-up spot until the last corner of the final lap when the right rear tire came apart as he was exiting turn four. Matt limped across the finish line and only lost one spot, coming in 3rd.

“It was another strong run at the Grizzly Nationals for us,” stated Matt. “I knew we had our work cut out for us with Sam on the pole and us starting 6th. I was able to work into 3rd pretty early, but had to use up the tires some to get the pass for 2nd. Once I got in 2nd, Sam was too far ahead so I was just riding, trying to save the tires till the end. We should have put a new tire on for the feature. But luckily it blew right there at the last corner or we could have lost a lot more spots. I was disappointed that we got rained out Saturday because I thought we had a shot for some passing points and a good feature position. But hopefully we can keep up the speed and momentum going into this weekend.”

Up next for Matt and the ASCS Lucas Oil National Tour is a two-night stop at Big Sky Speedway in Shepherd, MT for action on July 19th and 20th.

Matt and his CG Motorsports team would like to thank and mention all partners who have helped make this year and the 2019 season possible.

Cottage Grove Speedway Win Highlights Justin Sanders’ Speedweek Northwest

PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking his Justin Sanders Racing No. 17 machine up to Oregon to compete in Speedweek Northwest, Justin Sanders would have a great week that would be highlighted by his first career Speedweek win during Wednesday night action at Cottage Grove Speedway.

“It was a really good week for our race team,” Sanders said. “We started off really strong, but battled some issues on Friday and Saturday. Still picking up a win, three podiums, and four Top-5’s in five nights is pretty cool.”

Yreka, CA on Monday night saw the Aromas, CA driver kickstart his Speedweek by picking up a podium finish during the lone California stop of the five-race event.

Getting a day off of action on Tuesday with Rain intervening, Sanders would check in at Cottage Grove Speedway on Wednesday night and really flex his muscle.

Timing in 2nd fastest in time trials, Sanders would pick up a second place finish in his heat race after lining up in the sixth starting position. Winning the Dash, Sanders would earn the pole for the feature event.

Leading from start to finish, Sanders would negate a couple of challenges from Colby Copeland for the top spot, but was having none of it, as he parked the North County Plastering backed machine in victory lane for the first time in his career in Oregon.

Traveling to Banks, OR on Thursday night, Sanders would again run very well as he picked up his third career podium finish by way of finishing third, after timing in eighth quickest in time trials, and running second in his heat race.

Friday and Saturday saw the series return to Cottage Grove Speedway for a pair of tilts to cap the hard fought week.

Friday night Sanders would face some challenges as he got off to a rocky start and timed in 21st in time trials before racing to a heat race win. Starting deep in the field, the California driver would put on quite a show as he was able to claw his way forward and close the night out with a very hard fought eighth place finish.

In the final night of action, Sanders would get back to his ways as he would time in much better on this night as he was eighth quickest in time trials before running fifth in his heat race.

Putting together another nice run during the feature event, Sanders would score his fourth Top-Five finish of the week as he capped the week finishing second in Speedweek points.

“I have to thank everyone that made this all possible,” Sanders said. “It was great to get up North, have some speed, have some success and pick up a win.”

Justin and his team would like to thank North County Plastering, Andy’s Construction, Yuba Sutter Aviation, Roadside 24hr Service, 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, and Steve Duppman Racing for their continued support in 2019.

ON TAP: Sanders will be back in CA this weekend as he will be at Ocean speedway Friday and Saturday night for the Kaeding Classic.

Sprint Car Stars Tony Stewart, Christopher Bell and Rico Abreu Set To Invade Ohsweken For Two Nights July 22 and 23
 

By Clayton Johns

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (July 17, 2019) – Ohsweken Speedway is excited to carry on its annual tradition of bringing some of racing’s biggest stars to its 3/8-mile clay oval when Tony Stewart, Christopher Bell and Rico Abreu race at the Northern Summer Nationals presented by Burger Barn, Arrow Express, Nitro 54 Variety and Bradshaw Brothers fuels. All three drivers will be in action to take on Ohsweken’s stars of the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Car division as well as some of the top drivers from across the northeast during two nights of action on Monday, July 22 and Tuesday, July 23. Each night features a $5,000 USD-to-win main event for the 360 Sprint Cars.

Monday night’s event also features the Late Model Open, Canadian/UMP Modified Challenge and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks. Then on Tuesday, it’s the RoC Sportsman Tour, Action Sprint Tour and Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks who join the 360 Sprint Cars. Detailed payouts for each division are listed below.

On both nights, the Features for all four divisions will air live on MavTV Canada motorsports network as the third and fourth episodes of All North Racing powered by Pinty’s starting at 9:00pm EST.

Race time each night is 7:30pm with hot laps scheduled for 7:00pm. Adult advanced reserved tickets are just $30 and can be purchased online, along with reserved camping spaces, at www.ohswekenspeedway.ca.

Tony Stewart

Next week’s event marks the return of three-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion Tony Stewart to Ohsweken Speedway for the first time since 2013. The current owner of the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All-Star Circuit of Champions sprint car series and famous Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio is known as much for his dirt track achievements as his NASCAR success. A three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, four-time USAC champion, two-time Chili Bowl champion and 1997 IndyCar champion, Stewart is one of the most versatile racecar drivers on the planet. The Columbus, Indiana native also has three career wins at Ohsweken, including his first career World of Outlaws win on July 27, 2011 before also winning for the second consecutive year on July 31, 2012. He has also won once in 360 Sprint Car competition, which came on July 30, 2012.

“I’m very much looking forward to getting back to Canada. Glenn, and his team always treat us so well,” said Stewart earlier this year. “I won my first Outlaw race at Ohsweken back in 2011, I remember it vividly. It was the week before the Brickyard in Indy and my victory lane check was strategically placed in the window of my motorhome for everyone to see at IMS. There is always such a strong contingent of cars that come to Ohsweken for the Summer Nationals. I hope we can put on a show for the fans.”

So far in 2019, Stewart has competed nine times with the All-Stars where he has earned three top-fives and six top-10 finishes. Stewart has also raced in his 360 Sprint Car several times this season, primarily with the United Sprint Car Series (USCS), where he currently sits 10th.

Christopher Bell

Christopher Bell will race at Ohsweken Speedway for the first time next Tuesday night. The two-time and reigning Chili Bowl Midget Nationals Champion was also the 2017 NASCAR Truck Series Champion and is one of dirt track racing’s brightest stars. Ohsweken’s multi-groove racing surface will fit Bell’s exciting style well.

“I’m super excited to race at Ohsweken. I’ve always followed the racing there and it’s an amazing venue,” said Bell, a 24-year-old native of Norman, Oklahoma who was also the 2013 USAC National Midget Champion at just 19 years old.

Bell is currently in his second full-time season as the pilot of the Joe Gibbs Racing No.20 in the NASCAR Xfinity Series where he currently sits second in series points with four wins to his credit this year. He also scored a popular Sprint Car win at Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA during Pennsylvania Speedweek while driving the Kevin Swindell-owned No.39 on July 2, 2019. Bell also has four career World of Outlaws wins to his credit, including his most recent triumph on October 14, 2018 at Eldora Speedway in a Tony Stewart Racing-prepared car.

Rico Abreu

St. Helena, California driver Rico Abreu will also be making his first career appearance at Ohsweken at the Northern Summer Nationals. The ultra-popular driver has become a household name in Sprint Car racing over the past few seasons. Abreu’s No.24 Sprint Car has become an iconic threat to win on the national 410 Sprint Car scene in recent years as proven by his eight career World of Outlaws wins to date. Abreu is also a decorated Midget driver who won the 2016 Chili Bowl Midget Nationals Championship with the Keith Kunz Motorsports stable. The 26-year-old, who lists Eldora Speedway as is favourite track, is excited to make his debut on Ohsweken’s high-banks.

“I’m glad our schedule allowed us to come this year,” Abreu said. “I have never raced my Sprint Car in Canada. I get to race the Kings Royal at Eldora and then drive right to Ohsweken from there. What a week of racing! I can’t wait. Thanks to Glenn for inviting me back.”

At the time of writing, Abreu has entered 14 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series events in 2019, where he has claimed two top-five finishes and five top-10 results. Abreu has also been active in both 410 and 360 Sprint Cars in his home state of California, with the Kings of Thunder and Sprint Car Challenge tour’s, while also competing nationally with the All Star Circuit of Champions and during Pennsylvania’s Sprint Speedweek in early July.

In addition to the three star drivers and Ohsweken’s cast of Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Car weekly standouts, the event will also feature some of the top drivers from across the northeast, including three-time Canadian Sprint Car Nationals winner Steve Poirier and 2017 Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints champion Jason Barney, to name just a few.

The 2019 Northern Summer Nationals will also have connection to the 15th edition of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals next September. The winners of the two-night Northern Summer Nationals will be guaranteed starters for the 35-lap and $10,000 USD-to-win Saturday main event.

Monday Showdown

Monday night’s event will also Feature the annual Late Model Open. Former Ohsweken regular Rob Pietz won the event last year, while multi-time Brighton Speedway champion Charlie Sandercock claimed a topless version of the event in 2017. Monday’s race will also feature the first Canadian/UMP Modified challenge between Brighton Speedway’s Canadian Modified and UMP Modifieds based primarily at Southern Ontario Motor Speedway. Leamington’s Joel Dick has won two of the last three appearances by the UMP Modifieds at Ohsweken. The always popular HRW Automotive Mini Stocks will also be on the card with their popular brand of five- and six-wide racing.

Tuesday Spotlight

Tuesday’s event will also feature some of the best regional races from New York and across Ontario. The Race of Champions Sportsman tour will return to Ohsweken for the fourth straight season. Brent Begolo won last year’s visit, while Chad Chevalier claimed Ohsweken wins with the tour in 2016 and 2017. The Action Sprint Tour makes its first of two stops at Ohsweken this year and will largely feature the majority of drivers who compete weekly with the Strickland’s Brantford Chevrolet Crate Sprint Cars. During the tour’s inaugural season, Aaron Turkey, Jacob Dykstra and Josh Hansen claimed Ohsweken wins. Finally, the Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks will round out the car. Entering this weekend’s action, Trevor DeBoer and Dave Bailey are tied with three wins each in the division this season.

Two Weeks Remain for Priority Aviation $20,000 Sponsorship Opportunity!

Knoxville, IA, July 17, 2019 – Teams competing in either the 360 or 410 Nationals at Knoxville Raceway have just two weeks remaining in their opportunity to cash in on the Priority Aviation $20,000 Sponsorship! The cut off for donations/memberships towards your favorite race team/driver end at 6:00 p.m. CST on Wednesday, July 31.

“We definitely will want to remind drivers and teams that no donation to help us pay for the Bryan Clauson Suite Tower is too small or too large,” says National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum Executive Director Bob Baker. “Several drivers and teams have asked us if it’s too late for a chance to enter and win this $20,000 Priority Aviation Knoxville Nationals Sponsorship, and it is not too late! $20,000 will go a long way towards helping some driver or team’s chances of making it to either this year’s 360 Knoxville Nationals or the NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals the following week. So teams and drivers have until July 31st to get their donations in to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum, and all of the proceeds go towards helping us pay off the construction costs on the new Bryan Clauson Suite Tower next to our museum here in Knoxville.”

A big thanks goes out to Priority Aviation and Richard and Jennifer Marshall for this great idea that will benefit a lucky race team, and the construction costs of the Bryan Clauson Suite Tower. A big thank you also goes out to the many race fans who are new members, returning members and donors to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum!

Currently, twenty drivers have taken advantage of the contest. Carson McCarl leads the current standings ahead of Pennsylvania’s Lance Dewease, Iowa’s McKenna Haase, Wisconsin’s Bill Balog, Indiana’s Tyler Courtney, Tennessee’s Sammy Swindell, Oregon’s Tanner Holmes, Ohio’s Jac Haudenschild, Connecticut’s David Gravel, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild, Wisconsin's Scott Thiel, Iowa’s Austin McCarl, Indiana’s Parker Price-Miller, Minnesota’s Craig Dollansky, South Dakota’s Clint Garner, California’s Mason Daniel, California’s Kyle Larson, Ohio’s Chad Kemenah, Iowa’s Joe Beaver and Oklahoma’s Shane Stewart.

All that sprint car teams and fans need to do is have their prospective members or donors visit www.SprintCarStuff.com and order a membership there, or contact the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum and request membership packets or make a donation. If ordering online, specify your driver or race team in the “Notes” section on the final page.

The museum can ship membership and donation information out for the drivers and teams to pass out at their races in July. The driver or team with the highest amount of donations returned to the museum before July 31, will receive the $20,000 sponsorship funding. All funds collected will go towards paying off remaining construction costs on the Bryan Clauson Suite Tower. Memberships start at only $25 per year, but any donation amount will be accepted. So everyone can afford to help out their favorite race team and the museum!

For more information on the Priority Aviation $20,000 Knoxville Nationals Sponsorship please call the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum at 1-800-874-4488.

Trenca Uses Late Rally to Post Top-Five Finish at Woodhull

Inside Line Promotions - WOODHULL, N.Y. (July 17, 2019) - Joe Trenca scored his fourth top-five finish of the season last Saturday at Woodhull Raceway.

The night began with a run from seventh to third place during a Patriot Sprint Tour heat race for the Mucci Motorsports driver.

"We had a good heat race," he said. "We passed all the cars on the start. By the second lap we were in third."

The strong run earned Trenca a spot into the feature redraw. Unfortunately, he pulled the highest number - eight - to line up on the outside of the fourth row for the A Main.

"In the feature I didn't think we'd be able to move forward," he said. "We had a restart with six to go and we were still in eighth. We blasted our way around the top. I knew I needed to make something happen to get to fifth and we were able to gain several positions."

The move led Trenca to a fifth-place finish. He remains second in the Patriot Sprint Tour championship standings.

While the weekend ended on a positive note, it had a frustrating beginning. Trenca competed with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions on Friday at Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon, N.Y.

"We broke a rear end in hot laps, which messed up a lot of other things on the car," he said. "We got it changed just in time for the heat race. We only made two laps and pulled in."

Trenca then placed fifth in the B Main to transfer into the 23rd starting position in the main event.

"We made our way to 14th and lost brakes," he said. "It was a rough night."

Trenca was credited with an 18th-place result.

The team has a busy four-race slate coming up with races on Saturday at Brockville Ontario Speedway in Brockville, Ontario, Canada; on Sunday at Cornwall Motor Speedway in Long Sault, Ontario, Canada; and on Monday and Tuesday at Ohsweken Speedway in Ohsweken, Ontario, Canada, with the Patriot Sprint Tour.

Bogucki Looks to Rebound After Bad Crash at Gallatin Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BELGRADE, Mont. (July 17, 2019) - Scott Bogucki and his SawBlade.com sponsored team are working to rebound following a vicious crash at Gallatin Speedway last Friday.

Bogucki's night at the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour's Grizzly Nationals started with a second-place run in his heat race. That advanced him into the feature redraw and he pulled the No. 5 to roll off fifth for the main event. Bogucki was battling with another driver for fourth early in the race when contact sent the SawBlade.com backed machine flipping violently over the turn four wall.

"Once again we had great speed, but not the finish to show for it," he said. "The part that really sucks is we came into that weekend within 10 points of three guys and now we are fifth in points, 50 plus behind. I'm okay and that's what's important. We will get ready for a lot of big races coming up."

The Saturday portion of the Grizzly Nationals was rained out.

Bogucki will compete this Friday and Saturday at Big Sky Speedway in Billings, Mont. It's the first time the ASCS National Tour has been at the track since 2015.

"I've seen races in Billings when I first came to the states in 2013 with Johnny Herrera," he said. "I'm ready to put last weekend behind me and get a good run. We will then head back for a weekly show at Knoxville before the 360 Nationals. I'm pumped for the next couple of weeks."

Andrews Takes Over Points Lead at Attica Raceway Park

Inside Line Promotions - FREMONT, Ohio (July 17, 2019) - Another solid weekend has put Chris Andrews into contention for the 410ci sprint car championship at Attica Raceway Park and as well as with the Kistler Racing Products/All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group.

Great qualifying efforts at both Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, and Fremont Speedway the past two weeks have resulted in top-10 feature finishes for Andrews. He qualified third fastest for the second straight week at both Attica Raceway Park last Friday and at Fremont Speedway on Saturday.

"That puts you toward the front of your heat and if you do well you get in the redraw to start a lot further up in the feature," he said. "The Mackey's have had the car so good for qualifying to give us a shot a good finishes. It seems every year something with these tires changes and it takes some changes to the car to get going. We are doing things to this car I haven't done in 10 years, but it seems to be working."

Andrews won his heat race to be eligible for the redraw on Friday at Attica Raceway Park. Unfortunately for him, he drew the 10 - out of 10 pills - for the feature lineup.

"We backed up a little at the start, but were able to come forward for a seventh-place finish," he said.

The next night at Fremont Speedway Andrews was able to finish third in his heat race, which made him inversion eligible for the feature. Starting fifth, Andrews hung around the top five the entire feature and he came home fourth.

"We have been able to put two straight solid nights together at Fremont after struggling there early," he said. "We still have some work to do on a dry, slick track, but we're making progress."

Andrews took over the lead in the 410 championship standings at Attica Raceway Park and he sits fifth in the AFCS standings and seventh in the Fremont Speedway standings, advancing three positions from the previous week.

"If we continue being this consistent I think we can win Attica's title and get in the top three with the AFCS points," he said.

Andrews will take the coming weekend off and get back to the championship battles at Attica Raceway Park on July 26 and at Fremont Speedway on July 27.

QUICK RESULTS -

July 12 - Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 7 (10).

Walter, Torque Racing storms to Remembering Randy Tracy PDTR A-main victory, goes top-five at Outagamie

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 17, 2019 – After enduring a roller coaster first half of the 2019 season, Josh Walter and the Torque Racing team kicked off the second half in sterling fashion with a pair of top five showings, including an A-main victory, during a Midwest Sprint Car Association twinbill at Outagamie Speedway Powered By EWSC Racing at Seymour, Wis. on Friday, July 12 and The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 13.

With 31 MSA Sprint Cars signed in at Outagamie Speedway, Walter drew the pole position in the second MSA heat race. Utilizing a backup car after his primary car suffered extensive damage in an accident at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam. Wis. on Wednesday, July 3, Walter had his way in the heat race jumping out to a big lead and never looking back en rout to his second heat race triumph of the 2019 season.

After the heat race passing points invert, Walter started sixth in the 25-lap A main. Walter moved up to fourth place in the early going before 2018 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car champion Justin Miller moved past to push Walter back to fifth on lap 12. Walter lost another spot to four-time MSA champion and 2010 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Kurt Davis to stand sixth on lap 13.

In the closing laps, the leaders had to work through slower traffic, which allowed Walter to sneak past Justin Miller into fifth as the laps wound down. Walter maintained fifth at the finish line in the race, which was won by Travis Arenz.

Walter was pleased with the result utilizing the team's backup car, which had previously been raced a handful of nights, including the 2017 Knoxville Nationals.

“We started with a great pill draw and were able to capitalize on the heat race win at Outagamie Speedway on Friday,” Walter said. “I wasn't really sure what to expect since we hadn't run this car yet after getting it put together. We were definitely happy with the top-five result in the A main. We knew the car was working good after the heat race, but there were still some unknowns as far as how the car was going to react to adjustments.

“The car was good, but I was slightly tentative,” he said. “I didn't want to over drive the car and it took about half the feature to settle in and get comfortable. The last thing I wanted to do was take myself out of the race or wreck another car.”

On Saturday night, Walter was among 36 PDTR 360 Sprint Car entries signed in to do battle on Remembering Randy Tracy Mid-Season Championship Night at The Plymouth Dirt Track. The evening honored Tracy, a highly popular and respected 24-year racing veteran at Plymouth, who recently passed away.

After starting third in the fourth PDTR 360 Sprint Car heat race, Walter passed rookie Justin Erickson for second on the opening lap. The 14th-year driver held on the rest of the way to secure a spot in the A main.

“We started the night off with a decent pill draw and made some moves to second in the heat race,” Walter said. “I was still slightly hesitant about overdriving the car. Even though we shook the car down the night before at Outagamie, Plymouth is a different track with a slightly different setup on the car. I should have explored the track more in the heat race, but it was a situation where we moved forward and we were going to make the show, so it's more important to not make mistakes.”

Following a highly favorable passing points invert, Walter started the extended 30-lap A main on the pole. Walter outpowered outside front row starter Tony Wondra to lead the opening circuit. Walter wasted no time extending the lead to a full straightaway over Jim Melis on lap14.

In the second-half of the race, Walter began to encounter large groups of slower cars, which slightly impeded his progress. On lap 22, Walter found himself pinned behind Anthony Knierim and Bill Taylor, who were racing side by side for position toward the rear of the field. Walter eventually worked past both lapped cars, but not without Travis Arenz hot on his tail for the win.

On lap 29, Arenz got a run on Walter to pull even for the lead in turn two. However, Walter was too strong as he fended off Arenz’s spirited challenge en route to this sixth career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main triumph and his second main event win of the 2019 season.

“Starting on the pole of the A is always a great starting spot,” Walter said. “I was more comfortable in the car and knew that I had to trust it if we were going to win. It's never easy winning any of these features, but it never hurts to start up front. The car handled great in the A and it was a fast track, which is always fun.

“I must have been really comfortable, because the 30 laps went really fast for me, which is usually not the case when I am out front,” he said. “Lapped traffic was a bit of a struggle and being patient isn't easy, but the last thing you want to do in that situation is give the win away by making a poor decision.”

Considering the extra money, prestige and special memories associated with the Remembering Randy Tracy event, Walter ranks the win at the top of his career accomplishments so far.

“Winning the Remembering Randy Tracy night has to be the highlight of my career,” Walter said. “It felt bigger than my first win. I think it had to do with the atmosphere, the honor involved in being part of something so wonderful for one man and his family, the caliber of the field and the track conditions made it more rewarding as well. It was a multi-groove track that was that fast and had a lot of passing through the field.

“I feel like the features I have won in the past were on single-lane tracks,” he said. “It also meant a lot to me to win in front of many of the people that I used to watch growing up who where there in support of Randy's family. Lastly, it was the biggest purse I'd ever won and it was amazing to have so many people get involved in going above and beyond to raise the extra money. This was all done by the fans. It just goes to show that the fans support and appreciate us racers as much as we appreciate them being there week in and week out.”

The Torque Racing team will next compete on Saturday, July 20 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. for autograph night. Hot laps start at 5:30 p.m. with racing at 6 p.m.

Gas City I-69 Speedway Officials

Make It the ‘Cool Place to Be’ for Sprint Week

GAS CITY, Ind., July 16 — In preparation for Thursday's “NOS Energy Drink Indiana Sprint Week” opener for the USAC AMSOIL national sprint cars, Gas City I-69 Speedway officials are adding several measures for fan comfort in light of the forecasted high temperatures.

In addition, two golf carts sponsored by Elliott's Custom Trailers will run continuous fan shuttles from the free parking and free camping areas to the speedway's main ticket entrance.

Other amenities include the addition of an ice-water station with a limited number of neck towels. Fans are encouraged to bring their own towels and use the station to refresh.

For those who want quick access to cold beverages, the concessions operation will provide drinks stations behind the grandstands for patrons wishing to purchase cold drinks only. The stations will have water, iced tea in plastic bottles and Coca-Cola products.

The starting times have also been slightly altered so both the sprint car and non-wing micro-sprint features will be held shortly before or after the sun sets, which will benefit the fans, drivers and crews. The pit gate will open at 4 p.m. and the main gate at 5 p.m., with hot laps scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. The track and series officials will make every effort to move the show along as quickly as possible.

Daniel Earns Sprint Invaders Win Before Charging to Top 10s at Jackson and Knoxville

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 16, 2019) - Mason Daniel captured his first feature triumph of the season last Thursday to kick off arguably his best weekend of the season.

Daniel won a heat race from the pole, placed fifth in the dash and hustled from fifth to win the Sprint Invaders main event at Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa.

"We've ran good there in the past so I was excited to get back to the track," he said. "On the initial start of the main event I got to second before we got to the first corner. They called that back. On the next start I was in third right away and then got up to second in a couple of laps. We got into traffic and the track started laying rubber down. I caught Ayrton Gennetten about halfway through. We got through a couple of lapped cars and he got stuck by one. I was able to get under him. From there the rubber really started coming in around the track on the bottom. I just knew I needed to keep my tires under me."

Daniel took the lead just after the midpoint of the 20-lap main event and he held on for his first career win with the series.

The strong run continued on Friday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., which hosted the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series.

"I fell back in the heat after some contact and couldn't make it back up so we finished sixth," he said. "In the B Main there were so many yellows and we were second, third, fourth and back to second. Luckily we transferred out of the B Main. We started 22nd in the main event, but we got used up in turns three and four and spun out. I went to the tail of the field, which was 23rd at the time. The car was good. I could run the bottom, top, middle. We had a fast car and made it work to rally back through there to seventh."

Daniel rebounded from the early incident to charge from the rear of the field to a seventh-place finish. He earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway, where Daniel qualified 24th quickest and placed sixth in a heat race. A fourth-place run in the B Main garnered a transfer into the back of the main event.

"I think at one point I was up to 12th or 13th, but I used up my right rear tire and we fell back a bit," he said. "We were fast and it showed."

Daniel hustled to a 16th-place result.

He capped the night by maneuvering from 17th to ninth during a make-up main event.

"In the second feature I knew what I needed to do and it was a fun race," he said. "I think I had one or two more spots and jumped the cushion in turns one and two. It almost stalled the engine and two cars were able to get by me.

"We've been hit or miss this year, but the last couple of weeks we've been mainly hit. We won our first race and had good runs at Jackson and Knoxville. It's exciting to start running well consistently."

Daniel will return to Jackson Motorplex this Friday and Knoxville Raceway on Saturday.

QUICK RESULTS -

July 11 - Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa - Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 5 (5); Feature: 1 (5).

July 12 - Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn. - Heat race: 6 (4); B Main: 2 (5); Feature: 7 (22).

Cisney Survives Wild Last Lap at Port Royal to Continue Strong Summer

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (July 16, 2019) - Dylan Cisney has been inching closer to hitting full stride this summer.

Cisney is fresh off his first career Pennsylvania Speedweek feature victory and first-ever triumph at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa., on June 30. That led him to an eighth-place finish in the Speedweek standings during his first year of chasing the entire spectacle.

"I think we're starting to be in good shape," he said. "We still struggle at nights. You can see that through Speedweek where we're good one night and bad the next. I'm pretty happy with where our Port Royal program is. We have room for improvement, but I think the last month or so we've got a lot of stuff figured out."

That was evident last Saturday evening as Cisney rallied from sixth to third place in a heat race before charging from eighth to win the main event.

"We were good in hot laps and then we did what we needed to do to get to third in the heat race," he said. "The points handicap put us starting eighth in the feature.

"It took right off on the start. It was good all race long. The biggest thing was we got a good start. The outside line really took off and I made a good move by splitting two guys in turns one and two. The first lap I was up to third and then up to second on the second lap. We had a restart somewhere close to halfway. I tried to dive under Jared (Esh) the first lap and couldn't clear him. It was the second lap after the restart I dove under him and got past him in turns one and two."

Cisney led the remainder of the race, but endured a wild final lap.

"I caught the cushion wrong there (in turns one and two)," he said. "I was trying to pace myself and not have to deal with traffic on the last lap. At that point in the race the cushion was right on the guard rail. So you were basically trying to hit the fence and not let the car get sucked in. I timed it wrong and slapped it with the right rear and it sucked the front around.

"On the last lap I didn't want to waste any time lifting so I stayed in the throttle through turn two. I got it off the guardrail and the car was getting back up to speed. I also ran out of fuel pretty much so it was spitting and sputtering. When it was at that angle it ran away from the fuel pickup. The motor took back off. (Anthony Macri) passed me halfway down the backstretch and slid up to the cushion late in turns three and four. I entered on the top and as he was sliding up I turned off the cushion and turned underneath him. We were side by side out of turn four.

"It was hard racing is what I see it as. We both ended up in the same spot coming out of turn four. I didn't want to give him any room, but at the last minute I tried to hold the car from sliding up and getting into him. I knew we were close. At the last minute our wheels barely touched and it hopped my right rear over his left front. I feel bad that it happened to him. He's had a lot of bad luck like that that's happened. Last lap, last corner, nobody is going to lift and sometimes the cars will get together like that."

Cisney came out on top for his sixth career feature victory and third of the season, which is the most he's ever earned in a single year.

Cisney plans on competing this Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., before returning to Port Royal Speedway on Saturday. Cisney currently ranks 10th in the Williams Grove Speedway championship standings and second in the Port Royal Speedway standings.

Starks Ties Career-Best Finishes at Jackson and Knoxville

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 16, 2019) - Trey Starks tied his career-best result at both Jackson Motorplex and Knoxville Raceway last weekend.

Starks powered the Gobrecht Motorsports sprint car from sixth to second place during a Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series heat race on Friday to open the action at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn. He then placed fifth in the dash before lining up on the outside of the second row for the main event.

"The last two times we've been there in a 360 we've been fast all night," he said. "We had a lot of speed on Friday. We got to second fairly quickly within the first handful of laps. Overall, it was a really frustrating feature. Every time I'd get to Lee Grosz's rear bumper the caution would come out. Then it'd take a few laps and the caution would come out again. They were imperfectly timed. I couldn't get a long enough green-flag run to get past him. I felt like we were faster, but didn't have the luck with the cautions or traffic."

Starks finished second, which marked his third runner-up result this season.

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway, where Starks qualified 18th quickest and placed third in a heat race. That relegated him to the B Main, which he won to transfer into the back of the main event.

"We need to start timing better and putting ourselves in position to win at the end of the night," he said. "We had a couple of good features and moved forward a ton. We can pass cars. But we need to help ourselves out by starting farther up front. Our qualifying effort wasn't as good as it needed to be.

"We tried a few different things in the B Main and we were really fast. I got held up for about the first five laps of the main event by a couple of cars and really didn't make any progress. So our 20-lap feature turned into a 15-lap feature really quick. Once I got by them it seemed like we could pass a car a lap."

Starks rallied from 21st to 14th in the main event. He capped the night by maneuvering from 15th to seventh during a make-up feature. That tied his career-best 410ci sprint car finish at the track.

"We tweaked a few things for the make-up feature and had a good and maneuverable car," he said. "We kept moving forward so that's a positive for the direction of our team."

Starks is scheduled to return to Jackson Motorplex this Friday and Knoxville Raceway on Saturday.

Dover Maneuvers to Third-Place Outing at Jackson Motorplex

Inside Line Promotions - JEFFERSON, S.D. (July 16, 2019) - Jack Dover scored his eighth podium finish of the season last Friday at Jackson Motorplex.

Dover, who was driving for Rick and Chris Bowers during the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series event at the oval in Jackson, Minn., maneuvered from fourth to second place during a heat race.

"You have to get a good jump on the start and make the first two laps your best laps," he said. "Once you get spread out it's tough to pass. I was able to get to second right away. That put us in the dash, but we missed the setup and ended up fourth."

Dover lined up on the inside of the third row for the main event.

"We rode in fifth for about five laps," he said. "On a restart we were able to get around two cars that went to the bottom. The racing lane was around the top so we rode up there. We held our line waiting for traffic, but every time we got to traffic the caution came out. We had a good battle with Trey Starks for the runner-up position though."

Dover's third-place run marked his third top five in three races at Jackson Motorplex this season.

He returned to his race car on Saturday for a Carpet Land Nebraska 360 Sprints event at Park Jefferson International Speedway. Dover won a heat race after starting on the outside of the front row. That earned a spot into the feature redraw and he pulled the No. 5 to line up fifth.

"I flipped twice in one night," he said. "About seven laps in I passed for fourth. I was trying to run down third and got off the track on the backstretch. I got into some water and had no control. It spun me backwards and caught the left rear and tipped me over. We were able to restart at the back of the field and about five laps after that there was a car stopped in turn four. A car turned down to avoid that car and I had nowhere to go. That sent me flipping two or three times."

Dover was credited with a 15th-place finish.

He is scheduled to return to action this Friday at Jackson Motorplex before venturing to Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday.

Henderson and Mike Sandvig Racing Score Knoxville Best Second-Place Finish

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 16, 2019) - Justin Henderson matched his best finish of the season driving for Mike Sandvig with a runner-up result during a make-up feature held at Knoxville Raceway last Saturday.

The second-place finish backed up a 12th-place run earlier in the night during the regular program's A Main and is the best finish ever for Sandvig as an owner at the famed track.

"I know I can win races at Knoxville so to take that step forward and get close for Mike as a new owner is really cool," Henderson said. "He's given me everything I need to be successful and as a team we're at a place where that effort is starting to get rewarded."

The night began with Henderson going out 30th for qualifying. With a lap of 16.095, Henderson qualified in the eighth position, which put him in the fifth starting spot for his heat race. He gained a position to finish fourth, locking him into the ninth spot in the A Main.

Early in the feature Henderson said he made a few miscalculations on the track, which caused him to lose a few positions. With the 20-lap feature going non-stop, Henderson wasn't able to get momentum moving forward and he settled for a 12th-place finish.

"The car was really good, and I felt great out there, but I made a few moves early that just didn't pay off," he said. "Despite falling back, I was confident in what we had and knew that we didn't have to change much for the second feature."

Henderson and his team made minor adjustments to the car for the make-up main event. Believing a better race ran by the driver was enough, the team rolled out for the 25-lap feature once again in the ninth starting position.

Henderson advanced into the top five by Lap 2. One lap later he passed Matt Juhl for the fourth position and by Lap 7 he had passed Lynton Jeffrey for the third spot, running right behind Terry McCarl.

On Lap 9, Henderson shot around McCarl for the second position using the cushion and he set his sights on Brian Brown, who had worked up more than a four-second lead from his front row starting spot. With the race continuing to go non-stop Henderson wasn't able to catch the leader as he came home with a second-place finish.

The result matched the team's previous season-best outing from I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., in April. However, it is the team's best result since dedicating to weekly action at Knoxville Raceway.

"The track really cleaned off after our first feature and it just played into our hands perfectly," Henderson said. "The car was already excellent, but the track allowed me a lot of room to run and I just got up on the wheel early and made it happen. Brian was really good, but I felt like we had a car capable of winning."

Henderson also gained a position in the series standings, moving from fifth to fourth, and he currently trails Brown by 174 markers heading into next Saturday's race at the half-mile oval.

"If you take out the crash we had in the early season, we'd be right up with Brian and contending for the points lead," he said. "Expectations can ruin a team if you get too crazy with them, but we came into this season realistic knowing we are a new team.

"But ultimately I think we are really close to clicking off some wins. We have the bases loaded and we're ready to swing for the fences. Once we get going, it's not going to be a one weekend fluke. We're a really good team and I expect us to be that way for a long time going forward."

Masse's Grizzly Nationals Spoiled by Misfortune and Rain

Inside Line Promotions - BELGRADE, Mont. (July 16, 2019) - Misfortune and wet weather spoiled the Grizzly Nationals for Cody Masse last weekend at Gallatin Speedway, which hosted the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

"We had circumstances go against us on Friday and then we weren't able to redeem ourselves on Saturday due to the rain," he said. "It was a bit disappointing, but we won't let one night of racing ruin what's been a pretty good season for us so far."

Masse's Grizzly Nationals got off to a tough start on Friday when he drew the final starting spot in a stacked heat race.

"I hate to be the guy who complains about the draw, but we probably couldn't have drawn worse for the heat race on Friday," he said. "We started last in a heat race that had probably the two fastest guys in our region along with five national caliber guys, so it was pretty tough. But we were able to gain one spot from eighth to seventh and the others didn't run away from us."

Masse's heat race finish slotted him in the eighth starting position in the B Main with the top six finishers transferring to the A Main.

"We got a really good start in the B Main and made it to fourth through the first set of corners," he said. "But a car stalled on the track before the lap was completed and we had a complete restart. The second start wasn't as good to us, but we did make it to the final transfer spot briefly before a couple of guys got by me. We had a caution with eight laps to go and I made some adjustments and was able to move up a position, but we ran out of time and weren't able to make a challenge for the final transfer spot.

"It was frustrating and disappointing to come up one spot short of making the A Main. Our car was good enough to make it, but circumstances just didn't fall our way. That said, we've had a lot of good luck with draws this year and the law of averages seems to be catching up to us the last couple of weeks."

Masse drew the No. 1 heat race pill on Saturday before that night's races were canceled because of rain.

"We went from the worst draw on Friday to the best draw on Saturday," he said. "Not that it eventually mattered since it was cancelled, but Saturday night's heat was stacked, too. But I'd rather start in front of a bunch of National Tour drivers and try to hold them off rather than have to try and pass them from the back."

Masse plans to compete with the ASCS National Tour again this Friday and Saturday at Big Sky Speedway in Billings, Mont.

"This will be our first chance to race against the National Tour in Billings since they haven't raced there in a few years," he said. "Jerry and Shane seem to be doing a great job there with the track. Big Sky is a track where we don't have a lot of experience, but we'll certainly give it our best shot."

Old School Racing's Tankersley Returning Saturday at Golden Triangle

Inside Line Promotions - HIGHLANDS, Texas (July 16, 2019) - Channin Tankersley will return to the Old School Racing sprint car this Saturday for the first time in more than a month.

Tankersley was sidelined following a vicious crash in the middle of June. It forced him to miss an ASCS Gulf South Region race, which dropped him to second in the championship standings - only nine points out of the lead.

"You just have to let yourself get back to a normal playing field," he said. "The biggest thing that hurt me was the dizziness and center of balance. It took about two and a half weeks to get over that. All the headaches subsided and here I am good to go."

Next up for Tankersley is an ASCS Gulf South Region event at Golden Triangle Raceway Park in Beaumont, Texas, this Saturday.

"It's probably one of my favorite tracks that I've ever ran," he said. "It races really good. It's like the perfect sized small track. You can still race, but its' small enough to keep everyone on a level playing field."

Tankersley placed second at the track earlier this season, giving him a podium finish during his last seven races there dating back to 2016. He's won five of those races during that span.

Kaleb Johnson Posts Pair of Runner-Up Finishes During Busy Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - SPENCER, Iowa (July 16, 2019) - Kaleb Johnson notched a pair of runner-up finishes in three nights of 305ci winged sprint car competition last weekend.

"It was a pretty good weekend for us, especially the first two nights," he said. "You always think that it should've been better, but we'll take it."

Johnson's racing weekend began Friday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., where he lined up sixth for the feature.

"Jackson was a bit of a heartbreaker," he said. "We were able to take the lead by about the third lap, but then we had a nozzle line fall off a few laps later and drop our engine down to about six cylinders. We somehow managed to briefly regain the lead while in traffic, but I knew it wouldn't last since we were down so much on power and it didn't. We were fortunate to finish the race let alone hang on to second. But I feel it would have been a different story if the nozzle line hadn't come off."

The evening didn't begin well for Johnson the following night at Park Jefferson International Speedway in Jefferson, S.D.

"The motor didn't run well in the heat race, but we worked hard and were able to fix it in time for the feature," said Johnson, who rolled off ninth in the main event.

"The feature was kind of a caution-fest. I was able to get to fourth pretty quickly and raced there for a while. Then I tried to pass the second and third-place cars around the top and went off the track a bit and lost a spot. But I was able to regain that spot and pass the next two cars to take second near the end.

"Unfortunately, they shortened the race by about five or six laps due to the cautions. That was frustrating since we were moving through the field and I felt we had the car to win. It was also frustrating since they never told us over the radio that they were shortening the race. But that's one of those racing deals you can't do anything about."

Johnson moved on to competition at Clay County Fair Speedway on Sunday night.

"Clay County was the disappointment of the weekend, mainly because of how well we ran the previous two nights," he said. "I expected the track to remain pretty heavy for the feature and had the wrong setup. I started fourth and ran there for a while until I missed the top in one corner and a couple of guys got by me. I ended up sixth. It was disappointing, but there are going to be nights when you aren't good. You just have to accept it and move on."

Johnson is looking forward to another busy racing week, including a return to 360 sprint car competition.

"We're excited to get our 360 motor back this week," he said. "We plan to race the 305 at Jackson on Wednesday as a support class for the Lucas Oil Late Models. Then we plan to run both cars on Friday at Jackson and the 360 at Knoxville Raceway (in Knoxville, Iowa) on Saturday."

Taylor Learns From Some of Top Drivers During ASCS National Tour Event

Inside Line Promotions - BELGRADE, Mont. (July 16, 2019) - Zac Taylor knows that if he is going to get better he has to compete against the best competition and that opportunity presented itself last weekend in Montana during a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event.

Taylor and his family owned 360c.i. sprint car team traveled to Gallatin Speedway for the two-day Grizzly Nationals. Taylor raced his way into the A Main on Friday while competing against arguably the toughest 360 racers in the country.

"We held our own in the heat, finishing fifth, which put us in the B Main," he said. "I was able to hold on to a transfer spot and went from 21 st to 18th in the A Main. We just missed the setup. The track took rubber and the car got really tight.

"It was a real eye-opener for me to see how fast these guys are and how they get through the slick. It just shows you the experience they get racing every weekend week in and week out. It makes them so much better."

Unfortunately, Saturday's race was rained out.

"I was looking forward to taking what we learned Friday and seeing how we improved," Taylor said. "I can't wait to race with the ASCS again."

Taylor will climb back aboard the Todd Henry midget this Saturday at I-76 Speedway in Fort Morgan, Colo., to compete with the POWRi Lucas Oil Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association. Taylor sits second in the championship standings.

"We've really been rolling in the midget," he said. "Todd and I are communicating so well and he gives me such a great race car."

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Adds Sixth Win To 2019 Season With Grizzly Nationals Triumph

Bryan Hulbert - BELGRADE, Mont. (July 16, 2019) Further padding his point's lead with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network this past weekend, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. picked up his sixth victory of the 2019 season in the weather-shortened NAPA of Montana Grizzly Nationals.
Hafertepe's first win with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network in the state of Montana, the win was vindication after coming up one lap short in 2018 due to a flat tire.
Positioning the Hills Racing No. 15h on the pole of Friday's 25-lap A-Feature, Hafertepe was challenged briefly on the start but went uncontested the rest of the event.
"Getting this win was a bid deal for us. I felt like we got robbed last year with the tire going down, and it was something that Pam [Hill] really wanted. It was all she had talked about, but she hadn't really said much about it this year but I told her when I got there that I was going to do everything I could to get it done for her."
Dominating by 7.722 seconds, Hafertepe stated the car was the best it's been all year.
On the subject of what the team has been working on leading up to the Grizzly Nationals, Sam stated, "It was just a lot of little things. We found some stuff with our shock program we'd kind of overlooked before, and really just stuff like that. Sometimes you get in a rhythm of doing things and you can overlook the small things. With a couple of weeks off, we had the time and started doing some research on our program and found what we had been missing."
Leading the series by 64 markers, the Hills Racing Team is readying for this weekend's Battle at Big Sky Speedway in Billings, Mont. on Friday, July 19 and Saturday, July 20.
"I'm looking forward to a good surface this weekend. It seems like they've made some really good changes to the track so we're looking forward to it. We've been there before so we have an idea of what to do and just ready for another two-day race weekend."
Both nights this weekend go green at 7:25 P.M. (MT). The entire Hills Racing Team would like to thank David Hoiness and his family for their gracious hospitality during the weekend in providing the team a place to get ready.

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 16, 2019 – Paul Pokorski and his Pokorski Motorsports team experienced a Midwest Sprint Car Association doubleheader weekend of racing action that provided a little of bit of everything, including a solid A-main finish, a tribute to a fallen team supporter, assorted mechanical gremlins, a race run in honor of a late fellow racer and a disappointing on-track incident to spoil a potentially strong run, Friday, July 12 at Outagamie Speedway Powered by EWSC Racing in Seymour Wis. and Saturday, July 13 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

On Friday, July 12, Pokorski ventured to one of his favorite tracks on the MSA schedule, Outagamie Speedway Powered By EWSC Racing in Seymour, where 31 360 Sprint Cars signed in to do battle.

After lining up seventh in the third MSA heat race, Pokorski worked past rookie Blake Wondra on the opening lap before maneuvering around Bill Taylor on lap six to secure a fifth-place finish and a berth in the 25-lap A main.

The 2014 MSA Masters Series champion rolled off from the 13th starting spot in the A main and worked past two cars in the early going to move into 11th when the lone caution flag of the race appeared on lap eight for Anthony Knierim’s stalled machine in turn one.

Following the restart, Pokorski held strong to power past Bill Taylor into 10th place on lap 15. Three laps later, Will Gerrits moved past to relegate Pokorski to 11th. However, Pokorski rode the outside groove of the wide, smooth and slick third-mile track to pass Lance Fassbender in turn four to regain the 10th spot.

Pokorski maintained the 10th spot in the closing laps to notch his seventh top-10 A-main showing of the 2019 season in a race won by Travis Arenz.

“Friday night was pretty good, but not without a few minor struggles,” Pokorski said. “The car didn’t run in hot laps. We found a broken spark plug wire and switched that for the heat race. While we were doing that, we ran the wing back to get it out of the way. However, I forgot to run it back forward for the heat race. Driver error there probably cost of a spot or two in the heat race.

“In the A main, I thought the track was fun and very racy,” he said. “The top and bottom were very equal and a few people even made it work through the middle. I hope the fans at Seymour enjoyed the show. We would certainly like to go back there more often next year.”

During the National Anthem parade lap at Outagamie Speedway on Friday night, Pokorski carried the black flag on the track in honor of MSA and Pokorski Motorsports supporter Dave “Hagar” Nelson, who passed away on July 5.

With 36 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars signed in for the Remembering Randy Tracy Mid-Season Championship program Saturday, July 13 at The Plymouth Dirt Track, Pokorski started and finished second in the first heat race to qualify for the extended 30-lap main event.

After starting 10th, Pokorski dropped back to 13th on lap 4 before finding a groove to his liking near the cushion on lap 6. Pokorski vaulted into the top 10 on lap 7. However, disaster struck on lap 8 when he was involved in a three-car incident between turns one and two, which resulted in contact with Shane Wenninger and Anthony Knierim. The damage from the incident was determined to be too extensive to continue. As a result, Pokorski was scored 21st in the race, which was won by Josh Walter.

“Saturday night was going very well until a little mishap in turn one of the A main,” Pokorski said. “We had learned a few things on Friday night and tweaked the car a bit for Saturday. It was probably the best race car we’ve had in a very, very long time. I was extremely disappointed and frustrated that we didn’t get to finish that race off the right way. Racing can be a very humbling sport to say the least. Sometimes I have to remind myself that if it was easy, everyone would do it.”

Pokorski was included in a special pre-race ceremony at Plymouth recognizing the racing career of the late Randy Tracy, who raced at Plymouth for 24 years from 1973 to 1996. Pokorski competed against Tracy in the Winged Super Modified division at Plymouth from 1993 to 1996.

The Pokorski Motorsports will compete in another MSA doubleheader weekend starting this Saturday, July 20 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. for autograph night sponsored by Pokorski Motorsports supporter Hopf Farms, which will provide backpacks and checkered flags for kids. Hot laps start at 5:30 p.m. with racing at 6 p.m.

On Sunday, July 21, the team will return to Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. for the second of three scheduled MSA events at the track this season. Hot laps are slated for 5:30 p.m. with racing to follow.

“We will work hard to get the car right for this weekend’s races at Plymouth and Angell Park and keep on digging,” Pokorski said.

Sammy Swindell and Swindell SpeedLab Team Up for Kings Royal and Knoxville Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - AVON, Ind. (July 16, 2019) - Arguably the two biggest winged sprint car races of the season will see a father-son pairing this summer.

Sammy Swindell has been tabbed to pilot the Swindell SpeedLab sprint car for Kevin and Jordan Swindell during the Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, this Thursday through Saturday as well as the Knoxville Nationals at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, Aug. 7-10.

"It's kind of an honor that he called me about doing this," Sammy Swindell said. "We talked about it maybe a month or so ago. It will be special. If we wound up winning this it'd be really special. Not too many father and sons get to do that."

The veteran claimed the Kings Royal in 1992, 1999 and 2012. He ranks second with 21 career World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series victories at the track. Swindell has earned a dozen top fives and 17 top 10s during the Kings Royal.

Swindell has just as impressive statistics throughout his career at the Knoxville Nationals. He has made 34 A Main starts - only one behind Steve Kinser for the most all time - during the prestigious event, including winning it in 1983. He has also recorded eight podiums, 14 top fives and 20 top 10s since his first Knoxville Nationals A Main in 1976.

Swindell also ranks sixth in career laps led - 89 - and he's one of only six drivers to earn the pole position at least three times.

"I was able to be there a few weeks ago," he said of racing at Knoxville Raceway. "We had a good car and the results didn't show what the car was capable of. Some things went wrong during the night that messed us up. I thought that the car drove really well there. That car is the same car as Kevin has so it's something we can compare notes and go from there."

The Swindell SpeedLab team is fresh off its first win of the season with Christopher Bell behind the wheel.

"We're looking forward to racing with (my) dad," Kevin Swindell said. "We ran the Kings Royal finale together and made the A Main last year and we ran a race together the previous year. I think we have all the pieces to be strong from the start."

But first Bell will be in the race car on Tuesday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, during the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic assuming that weather permits.

Kraig Kinser Captures Fifth-Place Finish at Hartford Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WILMOT, Wis. (July 16, 2019) - Kraig Kinser recorded his third top-five finish of the season last Friday during the Battle of Michigan at Hartford Speedway.

Kinser kicked off the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event by qualifying 14th quickest at the oval in Hartford, Mich. He gained a position in a heat race to place fourth, which lined him up on the outside of the fifth row for the main event.

"We got a good handle on the car and made progress in the heat race and feature," he said. "Top fives is what we're looking for so it was a good race."

Kinser maneuvered to a fifth-place result, which is tied for his second-best run of the year.

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday at Wilmot Raceway during the Badger 40. Kinser timed in 14th quickest and dropped a spot to finish sixth in a heat race.

"Gaining a position in the heat on Friday moved us up to 10th for the feature and losing a spot dropped us to 17th in Saturday's main event," he said. "The further you start back there the tougher it is to contend for top fives and top 10s."

Kinser gained a trio of positions to end 14th.

He is scheduled to race this Tuesday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, during the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic and Wednesday through Saturday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the Kings Royal.

"Those are two big events so we hope everything goes to according to plan," he said. "We need to qualify strong and if we can do that hopefully we can carry some momentum forward each night."

Saturday Night Points to First Visit To Merced Speedway

(PETERSEN MEDIA-Folsom, CA)- Taking a week off to regroup, the Joe Hunt Wingless Sprint Car Series is pointed to its first ever visit to Merced Speedway on Saturday night for the 4th installment of the 2019 season.

Fresh off of a couple of trips to the high speed Stockton Dirt Track, Saturday night will be a change of pace as the series takes to the tight confines of Merced Speedway and gets back to its bullring roots.

The first event of the 2019 season took place at Placerville Speedway’s ¼ mile oval and it was a show to remember as Shawn Jones and Jake Morgan battled to the end through traffic.

Saturday night the action should be equally as exciting on the newly revamped and reconfigured Merced Speedway that was widened out substantially and banking was added in to the track surface over the winter.

Heading into Saturday’s Central Valley Showdown, Jake Morgan paces the championship race by just six digits over Shawn Jones, as Scott Chapeta, Troy Degaton, and Boy Moniz round out the Top-Five.

Saturday night at Merced Speedway the racing action is slated to go green at 7pm. For ticket pricing, and directions to the speedway, we urge fans to click over to www.mercedspeedway.net.

Croft Claims Petaluma Speedway KWS Podium Finish

PETERSEN MEDIA- Traveling to Petaluma Speedway on Saturday night to link up with the King of the West Series, Willie Croft would have a very strong showing as he closed his night out with a third place finish.

“We were pretty good all night,” Croft said. “It stayed really sticky and hooked up, and that made passing tough, but we put ourselves in a great position all night.”

Timing the Holey Smokes BBQ/ButlerBuilt/Brown and Miller backed No. 29 entry in eighth fastest in qualifications, Croft would surge to victory during heat race action which propelled him into the all-important Dash.

Lining up in the fourth starting position of the Dash, Croft would get a nice jump as he moved into third, where he would finish and ultimately find himself starting the ‘A’ Main.

With the Petaluma Speedway still holding moisture and presenting the teams with a lightning fast surface, Croft would settle into fourth as the first half of the race clicked off with not much doing.

The leader having issues at the halfway point moved Croft into third on the ensuring restart as he now found himself chasing after Billy Aton and second running Chase Johnson.

Keeping the lead duo within arm’s reach, Croft simply couldn’t get in on their late race battle as he would close his Saturday night out with a third place finish.

“It’s great to end up on the podium, and hopefully we can start clicking more podiums off and turn them into wins,” Croft said. “Thanks to everyone who supports this race team and continues to help us out week in and week out.”

Willie Croft Racing would like to thank Holey Smokes BBQ, ButlerBuilt , Brown and Miller, FK Rod Ends, Factory Kahne, Schoenfeld, Team Simpson, Stilo, Smith Precision Products, Kaeding Performance, AL Drivelines, XYZ, Vortex Wings, Amerikote, DoTerra and GUTS for their support in 2019.

Carrick Sixth at Silver Dollar Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to action over the weekend in both Chico, CA and Placerville, CA, Blake Carrick’s weekend would be highlighted by his sixth place effort at Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday night.

“We had pretty good speed both nights, and it was good to get a good finish in Chico, CA,” Blake Carrick said. “Saturday night we were in a good position to start the race, I just got a little out of shape at the start and contact ensued and we got upside down.”

Friday night in Chico, CA Carrick would time the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed entry in fourth quickest, which locked him into the fast dash. Finishing second in the Dash placed the Lincoln, CA driver in the sixth starting position for the upcoming 30-lap feature event.

From his sixth starting position, Carrick would make a couple of swift moves early in the race as he would soon find himself in second, chasing after Kyle Offill as Andy Forsberg and Sean Becker chased after him.

Holding down the second position, Carrick would make costly mistake that would see him get over the edge of the speedway. Going to the back of the pack, Carrick would carve his way forward to get back up to the sixth position when the checkered flag was displayed to the field.

Traveling to Placerville Speedway on Saturday, Carrick would wind up 16th quickest on the speed charts in time trials, which would put him on the front row of his heat race. Able to pick up the win, Carrick would move into the redraw where the two pill put him on the front row of the 25-lap feature event.

Called for jumping the initial start, Carrick would move back one row. Getting into the cushion a little too hard in turns three and four on the opening lap, Carrick would get a little sideways and as he tried to throttle out, contact would ensue and he would get upside down.

Able to restart with a beaten and battered Carrick Motorsports entry, Carrick would do all he could as he came home with a 17th place finish.

“Thanks to my guys for all of their hard work, and for getting me back out on Saturday night,” Carrick said. “Looking forward to Ocean Speedway this weekend for the Kaeding Classic.”

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

ON TAP: Blake Carrick is scheduled to spend his weekend competing in Watsonville, CA during the Howard Kaeding Classic.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-27, Wins-0, Top 5’s-3, Top 10’s-6

HEARTBREAK AT PERRIS FOR ROA – ON TO OHIO AND INDIANA!

(Cypress, CA, July 16, 2019) Brody Roa seemed to be on his way to another top finish in the combined USAC/CRA - USAC Southwest Series race last Saturday at Perris Auto Speedway until a mechanical setback knocked him out of the 30-lap main event. Less than 24 hours later, the team put the disappointment in its rear-view mirror and left for the Midwest to compete with the USAC National Sprint Car Series for nine races on nine different tracks in 11 nights.

(The attached photo of Brody Roa in action at Perris Auto Speedway is courtesy of Doug Allen)

Three-digit temperatures greeted the 25 sprint car teams and early arriving fans at the track that is located on the edge of the desert, 70 miles east of Los Angeles. Garden Grove, California resident Roa drew a late number for qualifying but still managed to time in 10 fastest with a lap of 17.287. He then placed third in his heat race. However, his qualifying time dictated that he had to start 10th in a field that was stacked with heavy hitters upfront.

As soon as the race began, Roa, 28, began navigating his way towards the head of the howling pack. Staying on the high side of the racetrack for the most part, he picked up one spot on the first lap. By the end of lap five, he was up to fifth. Clearly one of the fastest cars on the track, he moved into fourth on the eighth circuit.

Roa’s path towards the front of the field continued when he dove to the inside and made another pass going into turn one on lap 12. At that point, he had steered his green #91R car from 10th all the way up to third with more than half of the race still remaining. Unfortunately, that ended up being his last hurrah for the night. As he was about to complete the 13th lap, he suddenly slowed on the front straightaway and coasted silently into the pits. His race was done and he ended up with a frustrating 18th place finish.

On the bright side, it was only Roa’s fourth finish out of the top five in 18 sprint car starts in 2019.

Going into the night, the fan-friendly driver had a one-point lead in the USAC/CRA Series and a 53-point lead in the Southwest Series. Heading into the next race for each, which is at Perris on August 17th, his lead is nine-points in the Southwest Series. He is now second in the USAC/CRA Series and trails the leader by 49-points.

Ideally, if the car escaped unscathed on Saturday, the team would have done routine maintenance, cleaned it up and packed it into the trailer with the other car and left for Ohio in the daytime. However, repairs had to be made so they did not hit the road until about 9:00 P.M. Sunday evening.

Roa, crew chief Zac Bozanich and Joe Gibb are driving the hauler back to the Midwest. Brett Roa, Brody’s dad, will fly into Indiana where the boys will pick him up at the airport on Tuesday. From there they will proceed to Ohio’s Eldora Speedway for a race on Wednesday night. After Eldora, they will head west to Indiana the following day for the start of “Indiana Sprint Week.” You can see the team’s full Midwest schedule with a track directory below.

Roa’s best finishes at “Indiana Sprint Week” the last two years have both come at the Lawrenceburg Speedway. In 2017 he placed eighth at the Southern Indiana oval and last year he took ninth there.
At each stop along the way, colorful Brody Roa t-shirts will be for sale. In addition, they will have delicious “Bill’s Smokey Mountain Jerky” available at every track.

By Clayton Johns

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (July 16, 2019) – Ohsweken Speedway is gearing up for its busiest five day stretch of the season and arguably its most exciting and it all kicks off on Friday, July 19 with Jibs Action Sports Autograph Night. The event is a fan-favourite where anyone in attendance can take the opportunity to meet their favourite drivers for pictures, autographs and treats on track at intermission. It's also Halloween in July where kids are encouraged to come dressed in their favourite costumes and participate in a contest at intermission. On the track, all four of Ohsweken’s weekly divisions will be in action, including the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland’s Brantford Chevrolet Crate Sprint Cars, Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks.

The action will then continue on Monday, July 22 and Tuesday, July 23 with the Northern Summer Nationals presented by Burger Barn, Arrow Express, Nitro 54 Variety and Bradshaw Brothers featuring Tony Stewart, Christopher Bell and Rico Abreu. All three drivers will race against the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars each night with $5,000-USD to win on the line. Also in action over the two days is the Late Model Open, Canadian/UMP Modified Challenge, RoC Sportsman Tour, Action Sprint Tour, Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks.

Adult admission is just $14 while Seniors (65+) and Youths (13-17) are only $10. Kids aged 7-12 are only $3 and Kids 6 and under are free. Race time is 7:30pm. The pit gates open at 5:00pm before the main grandstand opens at 6:00pm. For the full schedule of Ohsweken Speedway events, visit www.ohswekenspeedway.ca.

Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars

Following his fourth win of the season last Friday night, Dylan Westbrook regained the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Car point lead. The Scotland, Ont. pilot has a six-point advantage over Mississauga’s Mack DeMan who has seven top-five finishes in eight starts. Jim Huppunen currently sits third, nine points off the lead. In fourth, is Burger Barn Racing driver Cory Turner, who is just 25 points off the pace with eight top-10 finishes to his name this year. His younger brother, Ryan Turner, rounds out the top-five. Completing the top-10 are Mitch Brown, Scott Kreutter, Holly Porter, Aaron Turkey and Shane Ross.

Strickland’s Brantford Chevrolet Crate Sprint Cars

The Strickland’s Brantford Chevrolet Crate Sprint Cars are back in action with a tie atop the point standings as Jesse Costa and Steven Beckett sit knotted at 564 points apiece. While Costa has two wins this season, Beckett has been the division’s most consistent driver, recording seven top-10 finishes in his eight starts – the only driver to do so. Sitting third is Brantford’s Lucas Smith, who is just six points back of the tie for the lead. Mount Brydges, Ont. native Nick Sheridan sits in fourth, trailing by only 22 points and Paul Klager rounds out the top-10 with a 45-point deficit. DJ Christie and Dereck Lemyre sit tied for sixth, each 64 points back of the point lead. Rounding out the top-10 are Liam Martin, Brad Herron and Jordan Hill.

Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks

With his third win of the season, Trevor DeBoer took a bite-sized chunk out of Dave Bailey’s point lead in the Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stock division. Both drivers have the same number of wins this year, but Bailey’s eight straight top-fives to DeBoer’s four create the 42-point difference between the top-two in the standings. In third is Caistor Centre’s Jim Lampman, who is just one point ahead of Vittoria pilot Ryan Beagle. Logan Shwedyk of Jereseyville, Ont. rounds out the top-five. Meanwhile, Ken Sargent, Ryan Dinning, Donny Lampman, Rob Hoskins and Mark Fawcett occupy the remaining spots in the top-10.

HRW Automotive Mini Stocks

There is a new point leader atop the HRW Automotive Mini Stock division and his name is Tim DeBoer. The York, Ont. wheelman holds a slim two-point advantage over Kyle Wert, who has claimed four wins already this season. Dusty DeBoer sits in third with a 27-point gap still to overcome. Wayde Thorne of Waterford, Ont. and Tristan Da Silva of Waterdown, Ont. currently sit fourth and fifth, respectively, in the standings with just two points separating the pair of combatants. After eight weeks of action, Ryan Hillar, Jonathan Ayrton, Sean Iftody, Kevin Thorne and Mike Sarantakos round out the top-10.

Championship point race number 11 on tap for Placerville Speedway this Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – July 16, 2019…This weekend the Placerville Speedway is geared up to host another exciting Summertime Saturday night racing program with championship point race number 11 set to take place.

Featured divisions this Saturday July 20th will include the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Cars, the Jay’s Mobile Welding & Fabricating Pure Stocks, Mini Trucks, BCRA Midget Lites and the always fun Vintage Hard Tops. It will also be the final tune-up for Winged 360 teams prior to next week’s $5,000-to-win “Mark Forni Classic” on July 27th.

Live music will be performed in the grandstand midway on Saturday by the Tommy Odetto Band from 4pm-6pm. Coors Light Happy Hour will also occur at that same time and driver autographs featuring CJ Humphreys, Chris Curtiss, Terry Bergstrom and Brandon Leedy will take place from 4pm-5.

“We look forward to hosting another great night of championship auto racing this Saturday at Placerville Speedway,” said Russell Motorsports Inc. President and track promoter Scott Russell. “Our fan support and team support has been really solid all season long, so we can’t thank everyone enough. This weekend’s event should be a good final shake down for teams heading into the Mark Forni Classic. We invite everyone to come out early and enjoy live music as always in the grandstands.”

This Saturday’s event will be the 10th point race for the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Cars and marks the start of five races to go in the season. Auburn’s Andy Forsberg fought through adversity last week to maintain a 36-point advantage at the top of the standings over second place Kalib Henry. Forsberg continues his search for a seventh Placerville Speedway track title as the campaign reaches five to go.

“Last week we definitely had the cards stacked against us with some gremlins early and then getting involved in an opening lap incident in the A-main,” commented Forsberg, who also doubles as a part-time goat farmer in the hills of Auburn, California. “Everyone on this team hung tough though and we luckily salvaged a top-10 out of the night. The competition has been really good here this season with a lot of young talent but still some of us old guys mixed in that can get the job done as well.”

Henry last week started from the front row and brought home yet another top-five finish in the feature. The son of former track champion Mike Henry has finished among the top-five in all but two events this season and will be gunning to add a victory this Saturday.

Elk Grove veteran Bobby McMahan has also put together a consistent year while being a common sight towards the front of the field each week. The 1982 Placerville Speedway Rookie of the Year sits third in points, with Hollister’s Tony Gualda and Roseville’s Jodie Robinson continuing to round out the top-five in the standings. Both Gualda and Robinson have been knocking on the door at times this season and will look to claim their first ever wins at the track respectively this weekend.

Completing the top-10 in the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Car standings heading into Saturday are Calistoga’s Mike Benson, Placerville’s Shane Hopkins, Elk Grove’s Bubba Decaires, Napa’s Chris Masters and Placerville’s Jimmy Trulli.

With the Jay’s Mobile Welding & Fabricating Pure Stocks it continues to be “Mr. Consistent” Nick Baldwin at the top of the mountain. The former Placerville Speedway track champion also has a pair of victories to his credit and holds a 36-point lead over Kevin Jinkerson going into the 11th race of the season for the Pure Stocks. Completing the top-five are Jason Palmer, defending track titlist Scott Grunert and veteran Mel Byers.

Rounding out the top-10 in the Jay’s Mobile Welding & Fabricating Pure Stock standings with five races to go are Jesse “The Savage” Bryant, Stephanie Hanson, John Ewing, Dan Jinkerson and Jason Leonard. The biggest question everyone will be asking is, can anyone stop the juggernaut that is Dan Jinkerson? The ultra-talented wheel-man has picked off five victories in seven starts this year and has been a dominant force in the division. The battle for Rookie of Year now finds Bryant leading Hanson by 21-markers.

This Saturday is also the fifth point race of the season for the Mini Trucks, which have become a growing and popular class at the speedway. Things continue to be tight at the top of the standings with Ryan Murphy leading last year’s champ John LittleJohn by just two-digits. Tom Stanwood is also within striking distance and stands nine-markers behind Murphy.

Adult tickets this Saturday will cost $15, while seniors 62 plus, military and juniors 12-17 will be $13, children 6-11 are $6, kids five and under are free! Tickets can also be purchased online by clicking https://www.universe.com/events/2019-placerville-speedway-championship-pts-race-11-tickets-placerville-DYM164 The pit gate at Placerville Speedway will open at 2pm, with the front grandstand gate opening at 3pm. A happy hour is offered from 4pm-6pm in the grandstands featuring discounted Coors Light and Coors Original at the beer stand.

Cole Macedo Rounds Out Ocean Speedway Top-10 Before Saturday Wreck Ends Night Early

PETERSEN MEDIA- Climbing back aboard the potent Tarlton Motorsports No. 21 machine over the weekend, Cole Macedo would be in the mix at Ocean Speedway all night long before settling for 10th, and was involved in an opening lap incident at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night that ended his night early.

“The Tarlton Motorsports car is really fast right now, and a ton of fun to drive,” Cole Macedo said. “I have to thank all the guys that work on it and give me a winning car every time out.”

Friday night at Ocean Speedway, Macedo was in attendance for the first time since picking up a win a couple of weeks back. Getting the night started by timing the Tarlton and Son, Inc./Executive Auto Sales/Pabco Gypsum backed No. 21 machine in sixth quickest in time trials, Macedo would charge from the second row to win his heat race.

Locking himself into the Dash, the Lemoore, CA pilot would pick up a fourth place finish placing him in the second row of the 30-lap feature event. On a slick racing surface, Macedo would make a couple of quick moves to get into second and soon begin pressuring Dominic Scelzi.

Hooking up in an absolute thrilling battle for the top spot, Macedo and Scelzi would exchange haymakers at both ends of the speedway as they fought for the top spot. Continuing to hound Scelzi, Macedo would then slip back to third before getting tight in the cushion and brining out the yellow with just a couple laps left in the race.

Restarting with no issues, Macedo would pick up a couple of positions as he brought his machine home with a 10thplace finish.

Saturday night, Macedo and the Tarlton Motorsports team made the trek to Placerville Speedway. Timing in ninth fastest in qualifications, Macedo would pick up the heat race win, which was pivotal as it locked him into the nightly redraw to set the main event line up.

Pulling the six pill, Macedo would roll off the starting grid from the outside of row three.

When the race came to life, Macedo would attack the cushion in turns one and two, and as the field rumbled into turn three and four, a car would get out of shape in front of him and it would result in Macedo getting upside down and ultimately ending his night.

“Saturday night was tough, wrong place at the wrong time,” Macedo said. “Still, thankful to the Tarlton family for allowing me to compete at both Ocean Speedway and Placerville Speedway over the weeked.”

The Tarlton Motorsports team would like to thank Tarlton and Son, Inc., Executive Auto Sales, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, All Star Performance, and BG Lubricants for their support through the 2019 season.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-13, Wins-1, Top 5’s-7, Top 10’s-9.

ON TAP:Tarlton Motorsports and Cole Macedo link back up on July 26th in Watsonville, CA.

USAC MIDGETS HEAD TO GRANDVIEW, JOIN 358 MODIFIEDS IN NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL EVENT TUESDAY NIGHT, JULY 30

BECHTELSVILLE, PA JULY 16, 2019 . . . . . The stars of USAC will return to the East, this time taking part in the NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Series that will open at the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, July 30. The USAC Midgets will share the program with the 358 NASCAR Modifieds in the third event of the 2019 NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. The USAC National Midget event at Grandview will be the Ken Brenn Midget Masters going 30 laps and paying $3,500 to the winner. Gates open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.

The Ken Brenn Midget Masters is dedicated to Ken Brenn Sr., a winning Open-Wheel and Dirt-Track Modified Stock-Car Racing car owner for some 30 years (1954-1983) whose accomplishments on the track were accompanied by an unblemished record of integrity and professionalism. And win or lose the resident of Warren, New Jersey, always presented a first-class effort and treated everyone with gentlemanly courtesy and respect.

Brenn’s stellar Midget history shows a long association (1954-1972) with the old American Racing Driver’s Club and that relationship includes holding every office in the organization, including being a two-time (1969-1970) ARDC president. Plus, he was also a five-time ARDC Champion Car Owner (1963-1964, 1968-1969 and 1971) and listed on the ARDC's Honor Roll as a Lifetime Member.

But Brenn – who also did some Midget and Modified Stock-Car promoting – didn’t just race with ARDC as he provided rides for over 150 top drivers who competed in: the Indianapolis 500; USAC Championship Dirt Car, Sprint Car and Midget Racing; NASCAR’s old Midget Division; and, the highly-competitive Pennsylvania-New Jersey and DIRT Motorsports Modified Stock-Car Series.

Brenn was also a leader in making auto racing as safer sport as his efforts in this area saw him: design a universally-accepted roll bar for Midgets in 1958; have the first USAC Sprint Car to ever use a roll cage in 1966; and, be instrumental in making roll cages – and shoulder harnesses – mandatory for ARDC in 1970.

“I consider Ken a close friend, someone I have known for years but further secured our relationship through the Dirt Track Heroes Car Show at the Phillipsburg Mall over the past ten years”, commented Bob Miller who with the Rogers Family, promotes the Thunder on the Hill Racing events. “I remember when Mr. Brenn promoted midget races here at Grandview, he was always very professional, a great asset to the sport”, added Theresa Rogers.

And he continues to be regarded by the racing community as one of its finest representatives.

Christopher Bell, hot off a $10,000 win at Grandview on Tuesday, July 2 in a 410 sprint car is planning to compete in the Ken Brenn Midget Masters 30 along with Tyler “Sunshine” Courtney, Chris Windom, Kevin Thomas, Jr, Zeb Wise, Chad Boat, Tanner Carrick, Jerry Coons Jr. and C.J. Leary just to name a few. Time trials and qualifying events will lead up to the Ken Brenn Midget Masters 30 lap feature event paying $3,500 to the winner.

The 358 Modifieds will play an equally important part of this event with qualifying and a 30 lap feature that will $3,000 to the winner. Jeff Strunk is hot off a Thunder on the Hill victory and he’ll be challenged by Ryan Watt, the winner of the opening Thunder on the Hill modified event in June. Other expected entries include Brett Kressley, Duane Howard, Craig VonDohren, Rick Laubach, Doug Manmiller, Billy Pauch Jr., Kevin Hirthler, Jared Umbenhauer and many more.

The Tuesday night, July 30 Ken Brenn Midget Masters and 358 NASCAR Modified double-header will get underway at 7:30 PM with gates opening at 5 PM. Low, Down & Dirty is already hard at work planning the pre-race Meet and Greet.

Be sure to plan and attend the first return of the USAC National Midgets to Grandview in thirty years.

Advance tickets may be ordered by calling 443-513-4456. Please speak your name clearly and leave the number of tickets you needed. Tickets may be paid for and picked up on race night at the WILL CALL window after 3:30 PM. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM, one-half hour prior to General Admission tickets going on sale at 5 PM.

Championship Energy Action Track USA

On the Kutztown Fairgrounds.

Co-Promoters Rich Tobias & Doug Rose

Winged 600’s Debut This Wednesday At Championship Energy Action Track USA In Kutztown

Kutztown, PA (July 15) - It is a well known fact that the Hyper Racing EVO Injection 600 Sprints present some of the wildest, insanely competitive racing each and every week at Championship Energy Action Track USA on the Kutztown Fairgrounds. And they do so in non-wing fashion. Last Wednesday’s 600 Sprint feature provides an excellent example of the incredible brand of motorized mayhem produced by the division as three wheel-twisters fought tooth-and-nail for the win in a race that went right down to the fourth turn of the final lap.

But there’s always been a question...a curiosity, if you will...regarding a winged race at the Berks County oval. Several competitors feel it would be (at least) as good as the non-wing version that fans crave. Brian Carber, who won the very first 600 sprint main at Action Track USA in 2013, has lobbied for a winged 600 event at the speedway since his first triumph more than six years ago. Well, it’s time to find out if the optimistic predictions are accurate...

This Wednesday, July 17, the 600’s will race with wings bolted to the top of their roll cages. A banner field is expected for this first-of-its-kind event as the ground-pounding 600cc fire breathers battle in qualifying heats, last-chance qualifiers, and a 25-lap feature in the event sponsored by Gable’s Service Center.

Joining the winged warriors on Wednesday will be the USAC All Pro SpeedSTRs, All Star Slingshots, and the very first Action Track USA appearance of the Restricted 600 Sprints.

Pit gates open at 4 p.m. and grandstand ticket booths open up at 5:00. Warm-ups begin at 6:15 and the qualifying events go green right after the hot lap sessions.

Christopher Bell Will Compete When USAC Midgets Make 1st Visit To Kutztown’s Action Track USA On July 31

Kutztown, PA (July 15) - You’d think Christopher Bell would have too many other things to think about than a five day swing through Pennsylvania by the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Championship. After all, the Oklahoma native has four wins and is in the thick of the points battle in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and he’s a three-time winner of the prestigious Chili Bowl Midget Nationals in his home state.

But Bell is pure racer, and he loves to dabble in the dirt when he’s not wheeling his Xfinity car. He peered over the USAC National Midget schedule when it was released, and one venue in particular caught his eye.

“When I saw Kutztown on the USAC schedule, I knew I had to be part of PA Midget Week,” Bell told Action Track USA co-owner Doug Rose. “Your track is bad-ass!”

The winner of the past three Chili bowl Midget Nationals will gas a Keith Kunz creation in (at least) the first three events of PA Midget Week. Grandview Speedway kicks off the week on July 30, followed by Championship Energy Action Track USA on July 31. Path Valley Speedway on August 1st, it’s Linda’s Speedway on Friday, August 2nd, and the five race miniseries ends on August 3rd at Lanco’s Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway.

But it’s the mighty Midgets’ inaugural visit to Championship Energy Action Track USA on Wednesday, July 30, that has Bell and the USAC regulars stoked for their trip to the Keystone State. Belfor Property Restoration is the event sponsor for the event at the racy oval on the Kutztown Fairgrounds.

Logan Seavey, the defending National champ and his USAC Midget cohorts are eagerly anticipating their July 31 debut at the Berks County oval. Seavey, who is coming off a recent Indiana Midget Week title, will lead a strong contingent of midwestern wheel-twisters to the Keystone State along with current NOS Energy National Midget Championship leader Tyler Courtney. Known as “Sunshine”, Courtney has six victories and is one of only two drivers with more than one triumph on the National tour so far this season. Nine drivers have a single win (through July 15) and the wildly competitive nature of the National Midget Series was demonstrated during Indiana Midget Week, when five different pilots picked up victories in the five race miniseries.

Expected to join Courtney and Seavey for PA Midget Week and the first-ever appearance at Action Track USA are Chris Windom, Kevin Thomas Jr., Zeb Wise, Tanner Thorson, Justin Grant, and several others who produce some of the wildest, most competitive, heart-pounding racing in the country in their clay tossing Midgets.

Pit gates open at 4 p.m., with grandstand gates swinging open at 5:00. Warm-ups begin at 6:05 and qualifying activity gets underway right after the hot lap sessions.

RD "BICKERSTAFF CUP" SERIES RACE FOR OUTLAW MODS SET FOR SATURDAY AT SHARON ALONG WITH RUSH SPRINTS, RUSH MODS, STOCKS & MORE

 by Mike Leone

Hartford, OH July 16, 2019 After a very successful 11th annual "Lou Blaney Memorial" on July 6 followed by a weekend off for the Trumbull County Fair, racing is set to resume this Saturday night (July 20) at Sharon Speedway. The Menards "Super Series" event part of the 90th anniversary season will feature the third "Bickerstaff Cup" Series for the Outlaw Mods along with the non-wing RUSH Sprint Cars, HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, Gibson Insurance Agency Stock Cars, and the Junior Sprints for kids. There will also be kids bike races at intermission. It's A&MP Electric and Bucks Fab Night. Race time is 7 p.m.

The new four-race mini series for the Outlaw Mods (IMCA-type) has been created by Cyndi Stiffler and Scott Stiffler to honor and remember the career of former great, Jim Bickerstaff, Sr. Bickerstaff is the all-time winningest Super Late Model driver in the history of Sharon with 42 victories. The inaugural event on June 8 saw Brian Ruhlman top a huge field of 40 cars for the $1,200 payday, while Mike Potosky captured the $1,200 "John C. Rebhan Memorial" on June 22. Ironically it was the first career Sharon win for both standout drivers as they became the 53rd and 54th different drivers all-time to win an E-Mod race at Sharon.

After Saturday night's 25-lap $1,200 to-win main, the Series returns for the finale on August 24 that will pay $3,000 to-win, $300 to-start. The four-race "Bickerstaff Cup" point fund will pay $1,000 to-win and payback five positions thanks to Graham Machine, Blue Wolf Tavern, and Airport Auto.

There will be a pill draw for the heat races. The top 12 in passing points from all the heats will be locked into the feature with the top eight redrawing, while the rest will line up in B mains by passing points. The finish of the B mains will set the rest of the field. On August 24, the feature will be 33 laps in honor of the first race number Bickerstaff ran, and there will be a dash for the top six in that night's passing points to set the first three rows of that night's feature. The rest of the field will lined up per the standard passing points structure.

The following contingencies have been posted; Burgan Realty Hard Charger, $75 (overall Series hard charger will get $200); Dickson Racing Shocks, $100 cash nightly to the Hard Luck driver; Close Racing Supply, $25 to each heat race winner nightly and $100 gift certificate to each nightly winner; Penguin City Beer, one case of beer to each nightly winner; Hoosier Tire, two tires given away at each drivers meeting.

The Outlaw Mod Rules are posted at SharonSpeedway.com and can be found by clicking Drivers and then Rules. For more information on the Series, check out their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Sharon-Speedways-2019-Outlaw-Modified-Bickerstaff-Cup-Series-581138452385271.

The RUSH Sprint Cars have joined up with the Outlaw Mods at both "Bickerstaff Cup" Series events this year, while being rained out three other times at the track. Defending Series Champion, Chad Ruhlman, won the June 8 show as he was able to rip the fence and edge out Brian Woodhall for the victory. Then on June 22, Woodhall captured his first career Series win over a 20-car field, which matched the all-time high for the second year division. Woodhall continues to lead the $5,000 to-win RUSH Weekly Series points over Ruhlman.

Rob Kristyak enters Saturday night red hot. Kristyak is fresh off his first career RUSH Sportsman Modified Tour win last Thursday at the Trumbull County Fair and also has two wins this season at Sharon and one at Raceway 7. He has a nine-point lead in the HTMA/Precise Racing Products track points over 2017 champion, Kole Holden, with Tony Tatgenhort, Chas Wolbert, and Jacob Jordan completing the top five. Amelia Clay meanwhile has a two-point lead on Jacob Wolfe in the new "Wheelman" standings for non-winners presented by Ohio Intra Express and C&R Tire. That $75 to-win race, which has featured three different winners in four races, will be run at the end of the night.

The Gibson Insurance Agency Stock Cars round out the big car portion of the program. The Stocks have had three point events with Bobby Whitling, Chris McGuire, and Curt J. Bish victorious. For Whitling, it ended a seven-year winless drought at Sharon, while Bish snapped a four-year winless streak. Car counts have been between 27-30 meaning drivers have raced for the $700 to-win purse each night. Chris Schneider was also victorious back on May 11 in the 2018 "Apple Festival Nationals" non-point make-up feature. McGuire, the defending track champion, is currently tied with Bish for the points lead. Andy Thompson, Larry Kugel, and Shaun Hooks are third through fifth in points.

Pits are open throughout the afternoon on Saturday with pit passes going on sale at 4 p.m., while the main grandstands open at 5. Heat races are scheduled for 7 p.m. Grandstand admission for those 14 and over is $13, while senior citizens are $10. Patio seating upgrades are just $5 and fan suite seating upgrades are just $20 over the cost of general admission. In order to reserve either of these ahead of time, call the office Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 330-772-5481. As always, children under 14 and parking are always FREE! Pit passes are $30. As a reminder, coolers nor outside food or beverages are not permitted.

Coming up on Saturday, July 27 will be the return of the "410" Sprint Cars in a $3,000 to-win Menards "Super Series" event along with the Stock Cars, Elite Econo Mod Series, RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and Junior Sprints for kids. It's Texas Roadhouse Night with racing at 7 p.m.

Westfall earns BOSS Series victory during Fremont Speedway visit

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (July 15, 2019) – Surviving a near-race-ending cotosphroy on the final circuit, Pleasant Hill, Ohio’s Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports earned their way to victory lane on Saturday night at Fremont Speedway, clinching their second Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) feature win of the season and their first since early April.

Certainly keeping fans on the edge of their seats during their visit to ‘The Track That Action Built,’ contact on the final circuit between Westfall and a battling competitor forced the pilot of the ever-familiar ‘Bumblebee Express’ to perform a 360 degree spin while keeping the engine fired. Caution flags soon followed, as the car that made contact with Westfall also spun, but pulled to a stop. A one lap dash to the final checkers ensued with Westfall maintaining control to clinch his spot in Fremont Speedway victory lane.

Westfall kicked off his evening in northwest Ohio with a runner-up performance during heat race competition.

“What an exciting final lap. I wasn’t too sure how that was going to end, but Matt [Westfall] did what he had to do and it all worked out. I’m happy for the team,” Ray Marshall said, owner of the Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Crazy Lady Restaurant and Bar/Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car. “We were long overdue for a win and I’m happy we were able to get it done at Fremont. These guys have been working very hard and the results certainly show. We hope to take advantage of this momentum boost.”

Before making the trip to Fremont Speedway for BOSS Series competition, Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports made an appearance at Gas City Speedway in Gas City, Indiana, on Friday, July 12. The visit proved successful for the Forest, Ohio-based race team, ending the evening with an impressive climb from 15th to finish sixth.

Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will now look ahead and prepare for an entire slate of USAC National Sprint Car Series events across Ohio and Indiana, all of which beginning with the #LetsRaceTwo make-up at Eldora Speedway on Wednesday, July 17. Westfall will then follow USAC to Gas City Speedway for the first night of Indiana Sprint Week on Thursday, July 18, followed by consecutive Indiana Sprint Week starts at Plymouth Speedway, Kokomo Speedway and Lawrenceburg Speedway on July 18-21.

FREMONT, Ohio (July 15, 2019) – Building positive momentum just in time for the prestigious Brad Doty Classic at Attica Raceway Park, the ‘Texas Traveler’ T.J. Michael put together an extraordinary effort during his recent weekend in the Buckeye State, earning back-to-back top-ten performances including a podium run at Wayne County Speedway.

The weekend results, complete with an eighth place finish at Attica Raceway Park on July 12 before capping the two-day trip with a third place finish at ‘Orrville’s Historic Oval’ on Saturday, July 13, bumped Michael’s top-ten count to seven in 2019, all of which spread across three facilities: Attica Raceway Park, Sharon Speedway, and Wayne County Speedway.

Impressive enough, Michael’s podium run at Wayne County Speedway was the product of a row five starting position.

“It was a great weekend for our team. I’m proud of everyone involved,” Michael said, driver of the Michael Motorsports/Advanced Architectural Stone/Crown Battery/Fremont Fence Company/Pro-Tech Services/Wood Heating and Air Conditioning/Kear’s Speed Shop/Wings Unlimited/Soul Fully Rooted/Big D’s Pizza/No. 8M sprint car. “There are a lot of people who put forth a lot of effort to ensure I have the equipment and resources necessary to be competitive. Their hard work and dedication is certainly paying off. I’m excited to get back to Attica on Tuesday.”

Up next on the schedule, T.J. Michael and Michael Motorsports will join the Greatest Show On Dirt, the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, during a visit to Attica Raceway Park, attempting to qualify and contend for a top-ten, or a win, during the coveted Brad Doty Classic on Tuesday evening, July 16. The Plano, Texas-native qualified for the 2018 Brad Doty Classic A-main and finished 19th; there were 50 cars on hand for the midweek showcase.

Brock Zearfoss caps All Star swing through New York with $7,000 win at Lebanon Valley Speedway; Attica, Eldora next

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (July 15, 2019) – Certainly saving his best result for last, the ‘Jonestown Jet’ Brock Zearfoss capped his three-race, All Star Circuit of Champions swing through New York with a victory on Sunday night at Lebanon Valley Speedway, leading all 25 circuits to do so while blasting ahead to a final margin of victory exceeding two and a half seconds. For Zearfoss, the All Star Circuit of Champions triumph bumped his season total to two, each taking shape in the Empire State.

All but sweeping the entire program at the ‘Valley of Speed,’ Zearfoss won his respective heat race, as well as the evening’s dash. The only portion of the program that Zearfoss did not conquer was qualifying time trials.

In addition to his victory at Lebanon Valley Speedway, Zearfoss earned a top-ten performance at Orange County Fair Speedway one night prior, advancing one position after starting ninth on the grid. Unfortunately, the former Port Royal Speedway track champion was unable to kick-off the three-race weekend on a positive note, ultimately settling for 17th after starting seventh.

“An unbelievable effort by my team this weekend. These guys never give up and they never give up on me,” Brock Zearfoss explained, driver of the Premier Motorsports/Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill/Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc./BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Meckley’s Limestone Products/Berkebile Oil Company/River City Wood Products/No. 70 sprint car. “I’m proud of them. If we are going to get hot, this is the time to do it.”

Up next on the schedule, Brock Zearfoss and Premier Motorsports will set aim on five straight nights of World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series action beginning with the annual Brad Doty Classic at Attica Raceway Park on Tuesday, July 16.

Following his visit to Attica, Zearfoss will spend four nights at the World’s Greatest Dirt Track – Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. The #LetsRaceTwo make-up event, originally slated for Mother’s Day weekend in early May before being halted by Mother Nature, will kick-off the four-day stretch on Wednesday, July 17, followed by three nights of Kings Royal action on Thursday through Saturday, July 18-20. The 2019 Kings Royal champion will be awarded $175,000.

Carrick Cashes In and Scores First Career USAC National Midget Win

PETERSEN MEDIA: Coming alive the last few weeks aboard the Keith Kunz Motorsports No. 71k machine, Tanner Carrick broke through on Sunday night at scored his first career USAC National Midget Series win at Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex to cap Mid-America Midget Week.

“It means a lot to finally get my first win for my crew, and everyone on this team,” Tanner Carrick said. “We have been so close before, and there are probably a few races in the past that I should have won and it didn’t play out, but this one did.”

After timing the Craftsman/CVC/TRD backed No. 71K entry in third fastest in qualifications on Sunday night, the Lincoln, CA driver picked up a third place finish in his heat race and eventually took the green flag from the fifth starting position.

When the 40-lap affair came to life, Carrick held his own inside the Top-Five as patience would ultimately prevail in this race. Showing a very good car, Carrick continued to bide his time and eventually found himself in fifth with just five laps to go in the race.

As the leader battled hard up front running the cushion, Carrick would find something down low, lower than anyone else seemed to be willing to try.

Sitting in third on a restart with two to go, the lead duo exchanged the top spot up top, and Carrick worked the bottom to perfection.

Forging his way up in front of Chris Windom, Carrick would run the ‘slider’ line during the race’s final lap and would nip Windom at the line to capture his first career USAC win in dramatic fashion.

“I can’t thank this entire team enough for sticking behind me and continuing to give me a fast car,” Carrick said. “About a month ago I knew we had the speed, I just needed to get my confidence up, and I think we are there. Looking forward to contending for more of these.”

A busy week of action saw Carrick and company kick things off last Tuesday night in Oklahoma where the former series Rookie of the Year flirted with his first USAC win on this night.

Taking the green flag from the sixth starting spot, Carrick would find himself in the lead battle and would actually take the lead late in the race. Amidst some hard challenges for the lead, contact would eventually spoil what looked to be a promising night, and Carrick was relegated to a 12th place finish.

With a Thursday trip to Kansas washed out, Friday night saw the team check into Nebraska for a twin billing at Jefferson County Speedway that saw him finish 12th on Friday night, and 7th on Saturday night.

“It was a grueling week, but our team didn’t flinch, and just really cool to finish it off with a win,” Carrick noted. “Thanks to everyone at KKM who makes this all possible.”

Tanner Carrick and the Keith Kunz Motorsports team would like to thank Craftsman, CVC, TRD, Spike Chassis, Cemex, Arai, and Shell Shock for their support.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS- Starts-28, Wins-1, Top 5’s-4, Top 10’s-13

ON TAP: Carrick will not get a little breather as he will return to action with USAC as they head East to PA starting July 30th at Grandview Speedway.

Dominic Scelzi and Roth Motorsports Pick Up Fourth Win of Season

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting back into the swing of things in the Golden State, Dominic Scelzi and Roth Motorsports would garner their fourth win of the 2019 season as Scelzi picked up the Friday night win at Ocean Speedway.

“It was great to get back in the Roth Motorsports car, and get another win for Dennis, Teresa, and everyone associated with the team,” Dominic Scelzi said. “Saturday night we ran fourth with the KWS, so it was a good weekend.”

Friday night at Ocean Speedway, Scelzi kicked things off by timing the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co. entry in fourth quickest in time trials.

Picking up a second place finish in his heat race, the Fresno, CA driver would win the Dash, and lead the field to green for the 30-lap feature event.

Looking strong out front when the feature came to life, Scelzi would come under siege on a couple of occasions but was able to fend both off. A couple of challenges by Cole Macedo were negated, and a late move by Bud Kaeding was countered as Scelzi raced on to grab his fourth win of the season with the famed Roth Motorsports team.

Saturday night the team returned to King of the West action in Petaluma, CA where Scelzi got the night started by timing in fourth fastest in time trials. On a hooked up and heavy Petaluma Speedway surface, Scelzi would finish third in his heat race before finishing fifth in the Dash.

On the lightening fast surface, Scelzi would hold the status quo inside the Top-Five as passing would be tough during the 30-lap finale.

When the fast paced feature event came to an end, Scelzi brought his weekend to a close with a fourth place finish.

“Thanks to my guys for giving me a good car all weekend long, as well as a huge thanks to the Roth family for letting me run for the KWS championship,” Scelzi added. “Looking forward to the HK Classic this weekend.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, Jason, Tara, And Cole Roth Cattle Co., Roth Investments, FK Rod Ends, Weld Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Smith Titanium for their support in 2019.

Successful Speedweek for Tiner Hirst Enterprise

PETERSEN MEDIA: Spending the last week in Oregon taking part in Speedweek Northwest, both Kyle Hirst and Steven Tiner would pilot the Tiner Hirst Enterprise 94 during various nights of action as the team scored a win and three podium finishes in five nights of action.

“It was good to get my first laps of the year in the No. 94 car,” Steven Tiner said. “We have been pretty good with Kyle in it with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour thus far, so it felt good to get in and give it a go myself,” Tiner said.

Chalking Monday up to a test and tune night as he re acclimated to things, Tiner would come out strong on Wednesday night at Cottage Grove Speedway.

Timing in fourth quickest in time trials, Tiner would finish sixth in a tough heat race. On the slick Cottage Grove Speedway surface, Tiner would get rolling in the feature event but a parts failure would force him to the pit area early as he would be credited with a 20th place finish.

Traveling to Banks, OR on Thursday night, Tiner would again come out strong as he timed in fifth fastest in time trials before finishing third in his heat race. Winning the Dash, Tiner would lead the field to green as he looked for his first win of the season.

With Mitchell Faccinto beating him into turn one, Tiner would settle into second as he chased after the fellow Californian driver. Unable to mount a run to the lead, Tiner would close his portion of Speedweek out with a second place finish.

Serving as crew chief during the opening trio of races, Kyle Hirst would take over driving duties to close the week out during a two-night showing at Cottage Grove Speedway.

Hirst and company would remain fast just as they were with Tiner in the seat, as the Paradise, CA driver timed in second fastest on Friday night before picking up a third place finish in his heat race.

Winning the Dash, Hirst would lead the field to green and would get off to a great start as he worked the bottom groove in the opening laps. With second running Colby Copeland beating down the cushion, Hirst would hear him just in the nick of time, as he would change lines and find speed on the cushion.

Battling hard and exchanging the position with Copeland in dense traffic, he would not be denied on this night as he raced to his second feature event win of the season.

Saturday night’s finale saw KH time in 12th quickest in time trials before winning his heat race. Finishing third in the Dash, Hirst would take the green flag from the second row for the final event of the long week.

Falling back to fifth in the early laps, Hirst would come to life during the final 15 laps as he would work his way up to second and chase after Colby Copeland as the duo battled for the top spot just as they did a night prior.

Coming to take the white flag, something would go amiss on the THE/GP Development/Larry Davis Farms entry and it would see Hirst fall back to fourth momentarily.

With Copeland having issues as well, Hirst would get by him and would close Speedweek out with a third place finish.

When it was all said and done, THE would finish third in the final Speedweek points.

“It was a great week for us,” Hirst said. “We had a ton of fun, ran well, and it was a blast getting to swap roles with Steven Tiner for a few nights. Thanks to everyone who makes this possible. It is always great to get up into Oregon for a few races.”

The Tiner Hirst Enterprise Racing team would like to thank Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Larry Davis Farms, GP Development, Wright Process Systems, Fisher Racing Engines, SRP, Wilwood, XYZ Machine, DMI, HRP, Sway Away, Kevin Sharrah Designs, Prior Engineering, System One Pro Ignition, Sweet Manufacturing, Sway Away, Schoenfeld, Warehouse Paint, and Roseville Precision for their continued support.

Cox Scores Pair of Top 5’s at Speedweek Northwest

PETERSEN MEDIA: Travelling to Oregon to take part in Speedweek Northwest, Justyn Cox would reunite with car owner, Doug Rutz, and pick up a trio of Top-5’s over the five-race stretch.

“It was a fun week, and I have to thank Doug and Kathy Rutz for the opportunity, as well as all the people who helped on our car all week,” Cox said. “We definitely got better as the week went on, and had a blast.”

Monday night things kicked off in Yreka, CA where the Clarksburg, CA driver earned quick time honors before working his way from sixth to second in his heat race.

Running second in the Dash, Cox would chase after Mitchell Faccinto in the opening laps of the feature as Faccinto led early.

Continuing to run second, Cox would dive low trying to find some and would get freight trained by a few other drivers as he slipped back to fifth where he would finish.

With Tuesday night succumbing to Mother Nature, Wednesday night would see Cottage Grove Speedway step up and take on an added show. Timing in seventh fastest, Cox would finish third in both his heat race and the Dash.

Taking the green flag from the second row, Cox would slip back to fifth in the early laps as he searched around the slick surface. Falling off the end of the track, Cox would be relegated to the back of the pack. Able to salvage his night, Cox would slice and dice his way forward to close his night out with a 10th place finish.

Bank, OR on Thursday night saw Cox go out late in time trials and end up 15th fastest on the speed charts before working his way to a third place finish in his heat race.

Lining up 13th in the feature event, Cox was able to make up some ground as he broke into the Top-10, and continued to fight his way forward as he capped his night out with an eighth place finish.

Friday night kicked off the two-night finale back at Cottage Grove Speedway, and Cox would again find himself with quick time in qualifications. Running second in his heat race, Cox would move into the all California driver dash where his fourth place finish put him in the second row of the feature event.

Jumping into third when the race came to life, Cox would continue to run in third until he missed the rubber late in the feature event and gave up a position as he took the checkered flag in fourth.

Saturday night’s return to Cottage Grove Speedway would mark the final night of Speedweek Northwest, as Cox looked to end on a high note.

Timing in sixth fastest in time trials, a fourth place finish in his heat race would line him up 10th in the final feature event of the week.

Able to move around a little, Cox would work his way up to the fourth position in the closing stages of the race.

Looking to pick up his third top five of the week, a parts failure getting into turn three would leave the driver a straight away from the finish line as he would be scored 16th.

“Bummer to end our week like that, but still had a lot of fun,” Cox added. “Thanks again to the Rutz family for the great opportunity. Looking forward to climbing back in the family car this weekend.”

The Cox Racing team would like to thank Michael David Winery, Five Window Beer Company, MDW Sports, Cranked Naturals, PM Truck Repair, Justice Brothers, K&N, LRB, Konnected, A.R.T., Sacramento Theatrical Lighting, College Cyclery, Arai, Racing Optics, All American Powder Coating, VSR, Coos Bay Speedway, Swimming Pool Perfections, Tim’s Hot Rod Shop, Shell Shock, Moyle Race Engines, and Manzer Motorsports for their support in 2019!

Tony Gualda Third at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to weekly points action at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, Tony Gualda and the C&M Motorsports team had another great night ‘on the hill’, as they came away with a third place finish.

“It was a good night,” Gualda said. “We timed in with quick time, maintained in the heat race, and had a good start to the feature. We got to the lead and got into a little trouble in traffic and ended up slipping back to finish third. Thanks to Cody, Mandi, MF and all the great people who support this team.”

Earning quick time honors aboard the Moorfield Construction, Inc./Hollister Auto Parts/Dassel’s Petroleum backed No. 7c, Gualda would simply transfer through his heat race with a third place finish and make his way into the redraw.

Pulling the three, the Hollister, CA driver would take the green flag from the second row. After a false start and then a big wreck, Gualda would jump out to the early lead as he battled early with Shane Hopkins.

Using the low groove, Gualda would look strong out front as he quickly reached the back of the field and began the lapping process. With his pace slowed in traffic, Sean Becker was able to close in on Gualda as he used the cushion with Gualda working the bottom.

Bobbing and weaving through traffic, Becker would guess right and it would drop Gualda back to second, though he would close in on the leader as he fought through traffic.

Unable to get back by, Gualda would then see Shane Golobic get by as the three cars fought hard in traffic. A very entertaining race would draw to a conclusion with Gualda recording his eighth Top-Five finish of the year with C&M Motorsports as he ended the night with a third place finish.

“We got to battling in traffic, and I guessed wrong and Becker guessed right,” Gualda said. “We got back to him and he took the line away and then Golobic got by me. It was the first of three straight at Placerville Speedway so hopefully we can get one of these in the next two weeks.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Moorefield Construction, Inc., Hollister Auto Parts, Dassel’s Petroleum, PT Shocks, Swartz Diesel, Alturas Tires, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

ON TAP: Gualda and C&M Motorsports are geared up for a return to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

Shane Hopkins 8th at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- With a big help from High Sierra Industries, Shane Hopkins was able to put some engine issues behind him over the last few weeks and turn in an eighth place finish on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

“I can’t thank Chris and Shawna of High Sierra Industries enough for what they have done for my race team this season, and this week,” Shane Hopkins said. “They helped get a fresh engine under the hood of our car, and it was a huge change of pace.”

Timing in third quickest in qualifying time trials, the Cameron Park, CA driver would pick up a second place finish in his heat race which was good enough to earn a spot in the redraw.

Pulling the four pill, Hopkins would line the High Sierra Industries/ARP/ADCO backed No. 21 up in the second row for the 25-lap feature event. A false start would then move Hopkins up a row and he would take the green flag off of the second row.

When the action picked up, Hopkins would find himself battling the likes of Kalib Henry, and Shane Golobic as he fought to stay inside the Top-Five. Admittedly making some mistakes from the seat as well as on the wrenches in the pit area, Hopkins would hang on to finish with Top-10 as he took the Ron Stahl checkered flag with an eighth place finish.

“I made a couple of bad calls on our set up, and then in the seat I made a couple of bad decisions,” Hopkins said. “All in all, it was a pretty good night, and I’m really excited for what we hit on with our engine and am excited for this weekend.”

Hopkins would like to thank High Sierra Industries, ARP, ADCO, C&H Veteran Enterprises, Soares Motorsports, Brian Sperry Racing, Capitol ACE Hardware, El Dorado Disposal, Gary Morgan Graphics, Jake Morgan Racing, Johnson Motorsports, MD Builders, Joe Hunt Magnetos, Image Salon and Spa, Axcel Suits, PT Shocks, Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Kyle Johnson Racing, and Petersen Media for their support in 2019.

Andy Gregg Puts on Hard Charge Saturday Night

PETERSEN MEDIA: Though he waited until July to start his 2019 season off, Andy Gregg appeared to be in mid season form on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway as he thrilled the crowd and charged from 15th to finish fourth.

“Man, after the first few nights I had I was pretty dejected, but Saturday night was a huge boost of confidence for myself,” Andy Gregg said. “I had my old crew chief Bill MacLaren back on the wrenches, and everything felt really good in the feature event.”

Timing the GUTS/Capitol Ace Hardware/Crane Inspection Agency No. 16x machine in 14th quickest in qualifying time trials, Gregg had his work cut out for himself. Needing to win the heat race to get into the redraw, Gregg would come up short as he would finish third.

Moving into the feature event, Gregg would take the green flag from the 15th starting position on a surface that was fresh manicured prior to the final race of the night.

Letting the track come to him in the opening laps, Gregg would soon find himself on the thick Placerville Speedway cushion making headway as he worked through the field at a quick pace.

Gregg would seemingly starting picking off a car or two a lap, as he worked through the Top-10 and soon got into the Top-five. Getting stronger and stronger as the laps clicked off, a late yellow saw the local product sitting in the fifth position.

When the action resumed, Gregg proved he was not done quite yet as he would get by Kalib Henry to cap his night with a fourth place finish.

“To go against these guys who have pretty much ran an entire season and do what we did is pretty cool,” Gregg said. “I just have to thank everyone associated with this team for all of their support and helping me get back to the track.”

Andy would like to thank GUTS, Capitol ACE Hardware, Crane Inspection Agency, Sierra Ice, CTL Forest Management, Nail It Roofing, ARP Enterprises, Ervin Sales, Triple X, Wilwood, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, K&N, King Racing Products, BR Motorsports, Amerikote, Pony Express Service, Eagle Grit, and MF Inc. for their support in 2019.

Long Night Culminates with 9th Place Finish at Placerville Speedway for Andy Forsberg

PETERSEN MEDIA- Fighting mechanical gremlins all night long Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing would then overcome an opening lap incident to finish ninth in the feature event.

“It was an absolute hot mess of a night,” Andy Forsberg said. “We timed in and something wasn’t right under the hood, and the F&F guys worked on it all night long. We still didn’t have it right in our heat, and they kept at it. We got it right for the feature, and then we got collected in an opening lap wreck, so it was eventful to say the least.”

Timing the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine in 15th fastest in time trials, Forsberg was still able to grab the heat race win despite something amiss under the hood of his machine.

Making the redraw, the vaunted eight pill would put the point leader in the fourth row of the 25-lap feature event. Continuing to change things and find the culprit, things seemed to be back to normal when the fired off for the feature event.

When the race went green, a couple of cars would get upside down in front of the field, and with nowhere to go contact would ensue to the top wing of Forsberg’s machine and he would be forced to the work area.

Able to restart, the Auburn, CA driver had his work cut out for himself from the back of the pack. Patiently working his way forward, Forsberg to do a great job of salvaging a trying night as he clawed his way up to finish ninth.

“Big thanks to my guys for not giving up,” Forsberg said. “It has just been feast of famine it seems like this year, and Saturday was no feast. We will try again this weekend.”

PETERSEN MEDIA- Picking up a pair of Top-10 finishes over the weekend, Ian Madsen and KCP Racing are eager to kick off a monster week of racing beginning with tomorrow’s Brad Doty Classic.

“It wasn’t the best weekend of racing, but it wasn’t bad and we are excited to get after this week,” Ian Madsen said. “The Doty and 4 nights of the Kings Royal at Eldora will really test us all.”

Picking up the important heat race win, Madsen would move into the Dash where a sixth place finish lined him up in the third row for the 30-lap feature event. On the slick racing surface, the St. Marys, NSW driver would keep the KCP Racing machine inside the Top-10 as passing would get difficult over the course of the race.

When the dust settled on Friday’s show, Madsen brought home a seventh place finish.

Saturday night the scene shifted to Wilmot, WI and Wilmot Raceway for a short track showdown. Timing in fourth fastest in qualifications, Madsen would finish second in heat race action on this night which again was good enough to transfer him into the all important Dash.

Just as he did on Friday, Madsen would again finish sixth in the DirtVision Fast Pass Dash, and rolled off from the sixth starting position for the second consecutive night.

On the short confines of the Wilmot Raceway, Madsen would again keep his machine inside the Top-10. Battling the likes of Brent Marks, Logan Schuchart, and Sheldon Haudenschild, Madsen closed the weekend out with a ninth place finish.

Brian Brown Wins Make-Up Feature at Knoxville After Scoring Podium in Opener

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 15, 2019) - Brian Brown produced a pair of podium finishes last Saturday at Knoxville Raceway, which hosted a complete show along with the make-up feature from a previously rained out event.

Brown's victory in the nightcap was his 49th career in the 410ci winged sprint car division at the track. He's now only one victory away from tying Sammy Swindell for fifth on the career wins list.

July 13 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 4 (6); Feature: 2 (8).

"It was another solid night," Brown said. "It was a brand new car we hadn't taken there before. Hats off to Maxim for building cars that are identical and feel the same to me when I get to Knoxville and to Chad for putting them together the same time every time. You can't hit the ground running and set quick time if Maxim and Chad don't do their job well.

"In the heat we tried some things to make it better and weren't, but we know what we did wrong. In the feature we got to fourth pretty quick and then got to second. We ran Kerry (Madsen) down and there were two or three times when I thought I'd pounce. Whenever he'd make a mistake I did, too. I needed to do a better job a couple of times to capitalize."

July 13 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Make-Up Feature: 1 (2).

"It was exactly what we hoped for," Brown said. "We got out there and set a good pace. I went as hard as I felt like I needed to for the first little bit. You can't just run the tires off these cars. We set a good pace. Late in the race there were lapped cars two or three wide and banging wheels and bouncing off the cushion. I didn't want to get caught up in anything. I slowed my pace down quite a bit and still was able to win. Overall it was a very good night. Chad, Nate and my dad don't get enough credit, especially on those 95-degree nights. They did a great job."

UP NEXT - Wednesday through Saturday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, for the Kings Royal with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series

"It's a bigger race for the winner," Brown said. "The mentality of winner takes all comes into play. You can't even think about Saturday before you think about Wednesday. We've been good at times and not so good at times. Hopefully the things we've learned the last year since we've been there can be put to use and we can have three good nights before Saturday."

SEASON STATS -

30 races, 5 wins, 10 top fives, 16 top 10s, 18 top 15s, 22 top 20s

Chase Johnson Picks Up KWS-NARC Triumph at Petaluma Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - PETALUMA, Calif. (July 15, 2019) - Chase Johnson scored his seventh victory of the season last Saturday during a King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series event at Petaluma Speedway.

The win was his second career with the series and first of the season while driving for Shawn and Cyndi Thomas. It marked the third different team that Johnson has won with this year.

"It's been a good year overall with the amount of wins this year in the different type of cars," he said. "Something I've always wanted to be able to accomplish is to run up front and contend for wins in any type of car I've driven.

"It's really special. With Shawn and Cyndi we run a very aggressive and competitive schedule so there's no dates we look at the calendar and say, 'Oh, that's an easy win.' We're going up against the best guys around. To get a win isn't easy to do so it's special. I want to thank Shawn and Cyndi for everything they've done for me and my career, and to get them a win in their car is even better."

The victory was the third career for the team and for Johnson it was his fourth at his home track this season.

The night began with Johnson qualifying fifth quickest. He gained a position to place second in a heat race. That earned enough points to make the dash. Johnson was slated to start fourth, but a flat tire forced him to the work area. The team replaced the tire in time for Johnson to hit the track and advance from sixth to fourth, garnering the fourth starting position for the main event.

"With the format you need to qualify well to have enough points to get yourself into the dash," he said. "I knew once we could get in the dash we'd be in a good position for the rest of the night. Even with a flat tire putting us last in the dash we were able to have a good run to line up fourth for the A Main.

"I knew we had to stay patient (in the main event). I felt like we were the fastest car, but I had to stay patient and not get myself in trouble."

Johnson ran third early before he moved up to second place approximately a dozen laps into the race. About 10 laps later he took the lead.

"I was trying to find the right moment," he said. "I knew I had to be careful to not get together with another car. I felt faster than the leader, but I had to wait for the right moment. With the track not having a lot of areas to pass I had to be ready for the opening. The leader got a little tight and I was able to have room to pass on the exit of the corner. I snuck by him and drag raced him down the back straightway. We took the lead going into turn three and pulled away."

Johnson is scheduled to race this Friday and Saturday at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif. The opener is a Civil War Sprint Car Series event and Saturday's show is with the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series.

Kerry Madsen Leads Big Game Motorsports to Victory at Knoxville Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 15, 2019) - Big Game Motorsports had been on the cusp of scoring its first feature triumph of the season throughout the last couple of months.

The KI Crossbows team was missing the final piece, which arrived last Saturday at Knoxville Raceway. Kerry Madsen guided the car into the lead on the second lap of the 20-lap feature and executed until the checkered flag was waved.

"It's a relief," he said. "I was confident if we kept our head down and kept getting our cars better it'd fall in line."

It was a solid night all around as the team qualified second quickest and placed sixth in a heat race. However, it wasn't an easy night as the team changed an engine for precautionary reasons prior to the A Main. Madsen ranked fourth in overall points and with the feature being inverted by eight, it gave him the fifth starting position.

"We got a really good start in the A Main," he said. "I was pretty good. I ran the bottom. The seas parted and I got a really good run to get to second. I did a slide job in turns one and two for the lead. Traffic was really packed so it was tricky to get through them without making any mistakes.

"When it's one by one it's not bad. When I got to them it was like a pack. When you get stalled that much people will be coming from behind. You pick the best lane and try not to open an opportunity to get passed. (If you get stalled) you run a defensive line and then once you've made a clean corner you get back after it."

A couple of close calls in traffic toward the end were the only things to slow Madsen, who has 22 victories in the 410 sprint car division at Knoxville Raceway.

The team now heads to Ohio this week for four straight World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races Wednesday through Saturday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg for the Kings Royal.

"We'll try to have the car the best we can and just go for it," he said. "We'll try to make winning decisions. It's a different track now. There are some different characteristics than it used to have. It seems like our motors have been really good so that gives you a bit of confidence."

Madsen won the Kings Royal in 2014. He has six World of Outlaws wins at the track since 2013.

Price Overcomes Slow Start for 14th-Place Finish in Montana Debut

Inside Line Promotions - BELGRADE, Mont. (July 15, 2019) - Robbie Price charged forward six positions in the A Main to take home a 14th -place finish during the opening night of the Grizzly Nationals last Friday at Gallatin Speedway.

It was originally scheduled to be a two-day Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event, but rain cancelled the second night of racing after showers hit the speedway just before hot laps.

Price began Friday night by drawing the third starting position for heat race action. He finished fourth, which relegated him to the B Main.

"I got into the first turn really well and I got run up the track a bit in the heat race," he said. "I kind of got freight trained a bit then and I fell back to sixth, but made my way back up to fourth. You never want to have to come from the B Main, but it's just the way it falls sometimes."

Price maintained his starting position and he finished second in the B Main to lock himself into the feature event in the 20th starting position.

After an initial red flag at the start, the main event went non-stop and the track took rubber early, which made it difficult to pass. Price stayed the course and ultimately was able to advance six positions to end 14 th.

"The track rubbered up pretty early and that makes it hard to pass when you start that far back," he said. "I kind of just got in line and tried to capitalize when someone made a mistake. But it's one of those deals where we got in a hole early in the night and we can only blame ourselves."

Next up for Price is a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour doubleheader at Big Sky Speedway in Billings, Mont., this Friday and Saturday. With a field of competitive drivers and a track that he has never visited before, Price is hoping to start the night off with a good draw and he expects to be in contention at each night's end.

"I've seen some video of Big Sky and it seems pretty racy and I think it fits our program," he said. "Hopefully we can get a good draw, run well in the heat and get ourselves into the redraw. If we can do that I see no reason why we can't bring home a top-five finish."

July 12 - Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont. - Heat race: 4 (3); B Main: 2 (2); Feature: 14 (20).

Tim Kaeding Guides Sides Motorsports to Top Five at Wilmot

Inside Line Promotions - WILMOT, Wis. (July 15, 2019) - Tim Kaeding led Sides Motorsports to a top-five finish last Saturday at Wilmot Raceway during the Badger 40.

It was the best result during a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader for the team, which featured two cars both nights. The action began on Friday at Hartford Speedway in Hartford, Mich., during the Battle of Michigan.

Kaeding set quick time during qualifying, placed second in a heat race, ended fourth in the dash and came home 12th in the main event after spending most of the race in the top five.

Jason Sides timed in third quickest during qualifying. He also finished second in a heat race before scoring a fifth-place outing in the dash. Sides capped the night with a 14th-place result in the feature.

"It started out great going quick time and third quick," Sides said. "We both made the dash through our heat races and we swapped positions in the dash. He was pretty good and was hanging in there in the top five. On one of the restarts I got bombarded. It was like a hornets nest going into turn one. I got shuffled from seventh or eighth to 12th or 13 th. Late in the race TK was running in the top 10 and blew a tire out so that one went by the wayside at Hartford.

"TK used a borrowed motor from Dave Lunstra. Dave was pretty happy with it setting quick time with the Outlaws so that was good."

Both Kaeding and Sides returned to action on Saturday at Wilmot Raceway.

Kaeding qualified fifth quickest before he finished second in a heat race. He then ended fifth in both the dash and main event.

Sides timed in seventh quickest, finished fourth in a heat race and closed the night 15th in the feature.

"TK had another great run up front," Sides said. "We were running eighth for the longest time. This one car came in and whacked me going into turn one and knocked me over the cushion. About four or five cars went by before I could get gathered back up so that cost us a top 10."

Both Kaeding and Sides will compete this Tuesday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, during the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic and Wednesday through Saturday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the Kings Royal.

Schuett Moves Forward During Challenging Night at Lincoln Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - LINCOLN, Ill. (July 15, 2019) - Kyle Schuett battled handling issues and misfortune, but still managed to move forward in both the B Main and A Main with the Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Car Series last Friday night at Lincoln Speedway.

"This is probably the first night this year where we just struggled," the sprint car rookie driver said. "We just missed it, not only with the setup but with me struggling behind the wheel. It was one of those deals where I was glad to be able to load the car in one piece at the end of the night and be done with it. I know we're going to have those nights once in a while."

Schuett found the track conditions challenging.

"We had raced at Lincoln before in our midget so we felt like we had kind of an idea what to expect," he said. "But that was about three years ago. The track was packed in super tight from the moment we hit it in hot laps. It was really slick with nothing to get a hold of - no cushion or anything."

An eighth-place starting position in his heat race wasn't a good beginning to the night for Schuett.

"I didn't want to overdrive the car going into the turn and hit the wall so I played it kind of conservative," he said. "And the glare from the sun was really bad in turns three and four. I should've used some duct tape to help block it from my eyes, but I didn't realize it until I was on the track. I was able to move up to fifth, but a couple of guys passed me with slide jobs and I couldn't cut underneath them. I ended up finishing where I started in eighth."

Things went better for Schuett in the B Main, in which he rolled off the starting grid sixth.

"I felt a lot more comfortable in the B Main," he said. "We got the car better and it drove a lot better and we were able to finish third."

Schuett tagged the A Main in the 19th starting spot.

"We were able to pass two cars in the first couple of laps and then the track took rubber," he said. "It was follow the leader around the bottom with no passing after that and we finished 17th. We had a pretty decent car, but there wasn't a whole lot I could do. But that's sprint car racing. You can miss the show by eight spots one night and then run fifth the next night. It's just that competitive."

There is no racing scheduled for Schuett this week, but he'll still be busy in the shop.

"We're looking forward to having a weekend off and focusing on getting a second car ready for next month," he said. "Then we plan to race with MOWA on July 26 at Jacksonville and the following night at Macon."

Ryan Bernal Flirts With First KWS Win

PETERSEN MEDIA- Saturday night in Petaluma, CA Ryan Bernal flirted with his first career King of the West win but issues in traffic would ultimately see him cap his night with a 10thplace finish.

“We were really good all night long, and I think we had the car to win,” Bernal said “Unfortunately we got collected with a car in traffic and ended up finishing 10th. I can’t thank this team enough for working so hard for me.”

Getting the night started off great, Bernal would earn ARP quick time honors aboard the Tarlton and Son, Inc./Executive Auto Sales/Pabco Gypsum backed No. 21 mount.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Bernal would maintain and finish in the fourth position, which proved to be good enough to move him into the Sunny Valley Bacon Dash.

Surging to the win in the Dash, the Hollister, CA driver looked to keep a very strong night going as he led the field to green for the 30-lap King of the West feature event. When the green lights flashed for the 30-lap finale, Bernal smashed the fun button as he jumped out to the early lead.

Out in front, Bernal set a torrid pace and simply left the field in his wake as he looked to be in firm control of this one. Clicking off laps, Bernal would find himself in dense traffic that would ultimately break his night.

Taking the cross flags as the leader, Bernal would get tangled up with a car he was attempting to lap and it would bring out the caution flag and he would relinquish the top spot.

>From the back of the pack, Bernal would do all he could in the final 15 laps as he would get back to 10that the finish and continue to keep the points lead as the series travels to Watsonville, CA this weekend.

“We are getting faster and faster each and every night out, and I want to get that first win already,” Bernal said. “Again, big thanks to the Tarlton family for believing in me, and to Paul Baines and the guys for taking care of business at the shop and putting a great car under me.”

Tarlton Motorsports would like to thank Tarlton and Son, Inc., Executive Auto Sales, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, NOS Energy Drink, All Star Performance, and BG Lubricants for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 13, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 8, Top 10’s: 11.

Wilson Earns Trio of Top-10 Finishes With All Stars in New York

Inside Line Promotions - WEST LEBANON, N.Y. (July 15, 2019) - Greg Wilson continued his consistency last weekend during a trio of Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions races in New York.

Wilson led his Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Off Road sponsored team to three top 10s to give him six straight top-10 finishes. Additionally, he was tied for the most cars passed in the feature on Friday at Utica-Rome Speedway; he earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars on Saturday at Orange County Fair Speedway; and he passed the third-most cars on Sunday at Lebanon Valley Speedway.

"We have to get better early in the night," he said. "We'll make some changes in the next week or two focusing on that. We're good late in the night to compete, but need to get a little better earlier. We've passed a lot of race cars the last three or four weeks. We're making headway and the weather has been good enough lately that we're getting some racing in so that's helping our program."

Wilson kicked off the weekend by charging from 17th to ninth at Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon on Friday.

"The weather was threatening and the track ended up better than what anybody anticipated," he said. "We were a little off early in the night. As the track widened out we were able to get by guys. We were pretty competitive throughout most of the feature. I'm happy with passing cars on Friday."

Wilson made his debut at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown on Saturday. He powered from 13th to sixth in the main event.

"For a big race track it was pretty fun," he said. "They had it really slick; slicker than anything I've seen in a long time. We were able to pass quite a few cars there. It was a pretty good race for us and the fact we were moving forward at the end of the race made me pretty happy."

The weekend wrapped up with Wilson maneuvering from 12th to eighth on Sunday at Lebanon Valley Speedway.

"I hadn't been there either," he said. "It was really a cross between Williams Grove and Lawrenceburg - two places I'm not particularly good at. It got to a point where we were managing the night to try to get the best finish we could. We came out of there with another top 10 so I was really happy with that. I was glad to get out of there in one piece, too."

Wilson shifts his focus to five straight World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races this week. It begins on Tuesday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, for the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic before the action shifts to Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, for the Kings Royal event that runs Wednesday through Saturday.

"Ohio Logistics is the title sponsor of the Brad Doty Classic so there will be a lot of people there on the business side of things," he said. "We hope we run well in front of a lot of people who help us out. Hopefully we give all the employees something to cheer about.

"The Kings Royal is my favorite race of the year. This is the one I look forward to every year. With what Eldora Speedway has done to grow the event is pretty cool. I'm looking for four good nights of racing there, but hoping we can get ourselves in position on Saturday. Also, Hercules Tires will have their event trailer at the Kings Royal. Hopefully we'll get to be a part of that to help promote the brand."

Giovanni Scelzi Produces Fourth-Place Finish at Knoxville Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 15, 2019) - Giovanni Scelzi hustled to his second straight top-five result at Knoxville Raceway last Saturday.

"We've qualified good and had good heat races the last two weeks, but we've been hit with the eight both times for the feature inversion," he said. "It's tough when you start behind Kerry Madsen and next to Brian Brown. It's hard enough racing with those guys much less passing them. I'm happy with the progress we've made with the No. 41s car."

Scelzi qualified third quickest out of 35 entrants in the 410ci winged sprint car division. He then maneuvered his family owned race car from sixth to third place in a heat race. Scelzi ranked second in overall points heading into the main event, which was inverted by eight. He progressed throughout the race and made a late-race pass to secure a fourth-place finish, which was his 11th top five of the season.

"I felt good going into the night and throughout the night," he said. "It's always about warming up for the Knoxville Nationals. Getting laps is so, so valuable. I only have a few races there so we keep learning."

Scelzi is scheduled to tackle a pair of marquee sprint car events in Ohio this week. The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series action begins on Tuesday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica for the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic. Eldora Speedway near Rossburg hosts the Kings Royal from Wednesday through Saturday. Scelzi will be in his family owned car during both races with Bernie Stuebgen leading the team.

"Attica is probably one of my favorite tracks," Scelzi said. "I haven't been there this year, but we ran well there last year.

"The Kings Royal is a big race and having four days in a row is going to be fun. Eldora is a fast place. You're pretty much running wide open. I'm looking forward to it. We've ran well there this year. We ran ninth the first night of the World of Outlaws show (in the spring) and was leading the heat race the second night when it rained out."

Scelzi charged from 22nd to 14th during his Brad Doty Classic debut last year. He also drove into the A Main during the two Kings Royal preliminary nights in 2018. His ninth-place finish during a World of Outlaws event at Eldora Speedway in May marked his career-best Outlaws finish at the track.

Schatz leads all 40 to score Badger 40 victory at Wilmot

Date: Friday, July 12th Event: Battle of Michigan Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Track: Hartford Speedway (Hartford, Mich.) Donny Schatz A-Main Finish (Start): 3rd (3rd)

Date: Saturday, July 13th Event: The Badger 40 Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Track: Wilmot Raceway (Wilmot, Wis.) Donny Schatz A-Main Finish (Start): 1st (1st)

2019 World of Outlaws Championship Standings: 2nd - 5152 points (38 points behind Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 15, 2019) - A perfect momentum shift entering a busy stretch through the Buckeye State, Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing capped their recent two-race swing through Michigan and Wisconsin with back-to-back World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series podium performances, one of which a victory during action in southern Wisconsin. The victory, the fourth of the season for the Fargo native, pushed Schatz within 38 points of the World of Outlaws championship point lead.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 15 sprint car, earned his trip to victory lane during action at Wilmot Raceway on Saturday, July 13. A convincing victory, Schatz led all 40 circuits from the pole position, surviving early challenges from Daryn Pittman before keeping David Gravel at bay during the closing laps. It was Schatz’ first-ever victory at Wilmot Raceway.

“I’m sure somebody was coming there at the end,” Schatz said in Wilmot Raceway victory lane. “I was kind of hanging. We could get through a few lap cars, but then when I had to move around in (turns) one and two I wasn’t as good. But glad to get a win. It’s been a while. Always feels good to get the win, especially here in Wisconsin.”

Before capturing his fourth victory of the season, Schatz scored a third place finish during action at Hartford Speedway on Friday, July 12. A late restart would give Schatz an opportunity to climb two spots to score the Hartford win, but unfortunately, the ten-time and defending World of Outlaws champion was unable to capitalize.

Up next on the schedule, Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will set aim on five straight nights of action beginning Tuesday evening, July 16, at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio. The annual Brad Doty Classic is on the Tuesday night agenda, an event Schatz conquered for $10,000 in 2018.

Following his visit to Attica Raceway Park, Schatz will spend four nights at the World’s Greatest Dirt Track - Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. The #LetsRaceTwo make-up event, originally slated for Mother’s Day weekend in early May before being halted by Mother Nature, will kick-off the four-day stretch on Wednesday, July 17, followed by three nights of Kings Royal action on Thursday through Saturday, July 18-20. Schatz is a five-time Kings Royal champion, with the 2019 edition awarding an unprecedented $175,000 top prize.

JERSEY RUSH VIII CANCELED AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY TUESDAY, JULY 16, LOW CAR COUNT CITED

NEW EGYPT, NJ July 15, 2019 - After careful consideration and acknowledgement of likely low competitor participation, JERSEY RUSH event promoters Bob Miller, Len Sammons, Danny Sammons and Davey Sammons have been forced to cancel the event at New Egypt Speedway which had been planned for tomorrow night, Tuesday, July 16th. We always want to present the highest quality show and a great amount of effort went into the planning with over sixty sprint car team contacted. This is very disappoint for all involved, including competitors from all divisions who committed to race.

The promoters cited a shortage of anticipated entries of the 410 Sprint Cars as the reason for the postponement. Two prominent JERSEY RUSH Sprint racers who annually compete at the event, former winner Ryan Smith and recent PA Speedweek champion Lucas Wolfe are both sidelined with injuries suffered recently.

Smith, who has not raced since suffering a concussion at Selinsgrove Speedway on June 30th, has yet to be cleared by doctors to return to competition. Wolfe suffered back injuries this past Sunday, July 14 in the All Star Sprint Series race at Lebanon Valley Speedway.

Despite engine problems and crashes that had set back numerous other 410 Sprint teams in recent weeks, the promoters felt they had organized a strong enough field of entries for fans to enjoy the show until this past weekend problems forced other teams to cancel. Similar problems on the Modified side were also reported after a tough weekend for both divisions.

“None of us, me, Len Sammons or his sons Danny and Davey would be comfortable putting on a show with such a short field of cars,” said Bob Miller.

“We recognize the inconvenience a late cancelation may cause for those race teams that were planning to be at JERSEY RUSH and for fans who look forward to the event. But we would rather be up front about what was likely to occur and cancel than trying to put on a show that would not be up to the standard we believe race fans deserve.”

Due to the busy schedule, we will not look for an alternate date in 2019.

We thank the drivers of all divisions who did commit to the show as well as the outpour of interest in the event from race fans.

 

 

Tony Stewart scores three consecutive All Star top-tens during New York swing

Date: Friday, July 12th Event: All Stars visit Utica-Rome Series: Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 Tony Stewart Finish (Start): 2nd (1st)

Date: Saturday, July 13th Event: All Stars visit the House of Power Series: Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 Tony Stewart Finish (Start): 3rd (6th)

Date: Sunday, July 14th Event: All Stars visit the Valley of Speed Series: Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 Tony Stewart Finish (Start): 6th (7th)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 15, 2019) - Tony Stewart’s recent trip to the Empire State was complete with not only success, but also consistency, as the three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion earned three straight top-ten performances during Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 competition, two of which podium finishes including a runner-up outcome at Utica-Rome Speedway on Friday, July 12. Impressive enough, Stewart led the first six laps at the Vernon oval, eventually losing the top spot to Aaron Reutzel during an early battle in traffic.

“I’m proud of my team and what we were able to accomplish. The All Stars are a very competitive group. You have to be on top of things every time you are on the race track,” Tony Stewart explained, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 14 sprint car. “We were close a few nights, and we felt really good, we just didn’t have quite what was needed to be on top. Hats off to everyone for making the entire weekend in New York a success.”

Stewart’s visit to Orange County Fair Speedway on Saturday, July 13, also resulted in a podium performance, this time advancing from sixth to finish third on a slick, but racey surface. Better late than never, Stewart did not reach the final position on the podium until lap 24 of 25, eventually working around defending All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel.

Although the weekend ended on a low note for Stewart, finishing sixth on the highbanks of Lebanon Valley Speedway on Sunday, July 14, the level of perseverance displayed to finish sixth was impressive. In fact, Stewart started seventh on the grid and was well on his way to the front when disaster struck in the form of a spin, ultimately sending the Columbus, Indiana-native to the tail of the field with only two laps complete. Not flustered the slightest, Stewart recovered for a top-ten finish, his 28th of the season.

Up next on the schedule, Tony Stewart and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will make the trip to Ohsweken Speedway in Ontario, Canada, for Summer Nationals competition on Monday and Tuesday, July 22 & 23. The two-day, 360c.i. sprint car headliner will award back-to-back $5,000 top prizes.

Kyle Offill claims Chico point lead on Friday and tallies 7th place finish Saturday with KWS-NARC in Petaluma

By Gary Thomas

Chico, CA – July 15, 2019…After celebrating his 19th birthday last week Tracy’s Kyle Offill proceeded to tally a third place effort on Friday night in Chico to help take over the Silver Dollar Speedway point lead, before claiming a seventh place finish on Saturday with the King of the West-NARC 410 Sprint Car Series in Petaluma.

At the start of the season Offill and Team KO Racing set out to run regularly at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico and with three events remaining in the championship season find themselves on top of the standings by 44-points. This past Friday’s program saw him qualify sixth fastest and run second in the heat race to earn an outside front row starting spot in the 30-lap feature.

At the drop of the green flag Offill grabbed the lead and paced the first half of the race while fending off two of the best that the quarter-mile has to offer in Sean Becker and Andy Forsberg. After a thrilling conclusion to the main event he brought home a fourth-place finish at the checkered but was moved to third when the second-place car failed to scale.

“It was a solid outing for us on Friday night in Chico and although I would have liked to win, there’s no shame in finishing behind Sean Becker and Andy Forsberg,” Offill commented. “Both Sean and Andy are pretty much synonymous with that place, so it was definitely a good learning experience. Hopefully we can maintain this point lead over the final few shows and maybe bring home a track championship.”

On Saturday the team headed for Petaluma Speedway to compete with the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu 410 Sprint Cars. The third-year Sprint Car driver timed-in sixth overall to begin the evening, before scoring a fourth-place finish in his heat race. Offill then started from the outside of row four in the A-main and hung tough to snag a seventh-place finish after 30-laps of hard fought racing on the 3/8-mile adobe oval.

“Our usual crew chief Jonathan Allard had a ride to compete himself on Saturday, so we were happy to have Peter Murphy in our pit to wrench the car along with Dillon Paddock,” he said. “Peter is a great teacher as well and we had a fun time together competing with King of the West-NARC. Petaluma can be a challenging track at times and we were happy with a seventh place result in the feature. I want to thank everyone that supports us and makes this all possible.”

The 19-year-old driver returns to action for two big nights of racing at the ninth annual Howard Kaeding Classic in Watsonville this weekend. This Friday’s opener features the Civil War 360 Sprint Car Series, while Saturday showcases the King of the West-NARC 410 Sprint Cars. The event has grown into one of the biggest showcases for Sprint Car racing in the Golden State and features extra happenings at the track all weekend long, in addition to extra money being on the line Saturday night.

Kyle Offill Racing would like to thank Country Builders Construction, Ochoco West, Reliable Lumber, Boise Cascade, Brown & Miller Racing Solutions, Maas Brothers Powder Coating, Offill Family Farms, FK Rod Ends, HRP, T-Mac Motorsports, Moyle Race Engines, Smith Titanium Products, FK Shocks, Hinchman Race Wear, Arai Helmets, A.R.T. Ent., Kaeding Performance and B. Scadden Design for their support this season.

Sean Becker Seeks 410 Opportunity for Gold Cup Race of Champions

PETERSEN MEDIA- With the Summer in full force, that means the Gold Cup Race of Champions in Chico, CA is looming and standout Sean Becker is currently seeking an opportunity to run with the World of Outlaws at Silver Dollar Speedway on September 6th and 7th.

Growing up at the Silver Dollar Speedway and winning his lone World of Outlaws feature event there a few years ago, this event is one that Becker strives to compete in year after year.

Becker is no stranger to Silver Dollar Speedway, in fact he is coming off of a big 4th of July win just one week ago giving him 63 career triumphs at the facility, and looks to continue to gain form with some huge races coming to the Speedway.

Aside from the Gold Cup Race of Champions, Becker is also open to competing in Silver Dollar Speedway’s leg of King of the West Speedweek on August 22nd in the lone 410 tune-up race leading up to the Gold Cup.

With the Outlaws hanging around Northern California the week following Gold Cup, Becker is also eager to take part in Brad Sweet’s 49er Gold Rush Classic at Placerville Speedway on September 11th, a track he has also scored numerous victories at.

Understanding that opportunities can be sparce this late in the year, Becker is hopeful that his resume will get him a look and hopefully get him a seat to compete in these upcoming events.

Grizzly Weekend in Store for Carney on the ASCS Trail

Lonnie Wheatley, EL PASO, Texas (July 12, 2019) – John Carney II is in for quite the grizzled time with this weekend’s Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour Grizzly Nationals at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Montana on Friday and Saturday.

It will mark Carney’s first visit to the Montana dirt oval.

“It will be interesting for sure, it will probably be the only place I ever go where standing in victory lane actually seems a little more dangerous than being in the racecar,” Carney said of victory lane festivities that include a live grizzly bear.

Carney enters the weekend after a Fred Brownfield Classic at Elma, Washington’s Grays Harbor Raceway that included a strong runner-up showing on Friday, June 28, and then a 16th-place finish in the Saturday night finale.

Carney started the Elma weekend out in strong fashion with a heat race win and then nabbed runner-up honors in the feature after starting third.

“We were able to take advantage of a good pill draw,” Carney explains. “We were in good position to get the win in the feature. I was ripping around the top, I’d reel him (Devon Borden) in and then a yellow would come out. Without the yellows, I think we could have won. But he did drive a really good race.”

Saturday netted different results on a different track.

“It was day and night, the track was completely different and we drew the back of a strong heat,” Carney recalls. “And as the track slowed down, I just didn’t have any grip on the straightaways.”

Carney and crew continued working and raced into the feature through “B” Main action before finishing out the night in 16th.

“We made some changes and got better, but we started so far back and there wasn’t much that you could do,” Carney says. “It was probably our worst night of the year, but we still put down one of the quickest laps of the night in the feature.”

After an idle weekend, Carney sets his sights on a Grizzly this weekend.

John Carney Racing is made possible by the support of invaluable partners including Danny Sander Construction, South Plains Auto Transport, Mesilla Valley Transportation, Jackson Compaction, Vado Speedway Park, CSR Garage, Momentum Racing Suspensions, Performance Plus, Performance Motor Coach, Raider Graphix, MSD Ignition, Joe Hunt Magnetos and Bell Helmets.

Quick Stats: 18 Races, 2 Wins, 11 top-fives, 13 top-tens.

Next Up: Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, MT, on Friday and Saturday.

Bellm Takes on Creek County & Knoxville this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, NIXA, Mo. (July 12, 2019) – After racing to a sixth-place finish in ASCS Warrior Region action at Lake Ozark Speedway last Saturday, Kyle Bellm will take on a pair of dirt tracks at opposite ends of the spectrum this weekend.

On Friday night, Bellm and the familiar No. 14k Sprint Car will take to the cozy confines of the ¼-mile Creek County Speedway near Tulsa in ASCS Sooner Region competition. Then, on Saturday, it’s off to the Knoxville Raceway’s, high-speed, spacious half-mile aboard the Tony Bartlett-owned entry that the Nixa shoe will wheel over the next several weekends.

“Clancy (Boots) introduced us to each other and it led to us getting this ride,” Bellm explains. “We’ll run it at Knoxville over the next three weekends to get ready for the 360 Nationals.”

This weekend’s pair of events was originally supposed to be three only to have the Thursday portion at Caney Valley Speedway washed out.

Bellm goes into the weekend after a strong run aboard the Smith Racing No. 86 Sprint Car last Saturday. After a fifth-place heat race run, Bellm climbed from tenth in the feature to capture sixth at the finish.

“We were just a little too tight in the heat race and that cost us some,” Bellm recalls. “Then we got up to fourth in the feature and then the nose wing flipped up. We were able to at least hold on to sixth.”

Bellm will look for more Creek County success on Friday before the process of getting dialed in for Knoxville’s 360 Nationals gets under way on Saturday.

The Kyle Bellm Racing efforts are made possible with support from marketing partners including Greenworks Nursery, Landscapes Awarded, Christian County Collision Repair, Bybee Lawn Care, PPG Automotive Finishes, Colorvision, Schure Built Suspensions, Schaeffers Racing Oil and Park West Retirement Living.

Quick Stats: 15 Races, 1 win, 4 top-fives, 8 top-tens.

Up Next: ASCS Sooner Region at Creek County Speedway (Sapulpa, OK) on Friday; Knoxville Raceway on Saturday.

Reutzel Runs Win Total to Seven – New York Triple on Deck this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (July 12, 2019) – Another weekend of All Star Circuit of Champions competition netted another win for reigning series champion Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team.

Reutzel is looking for more this weekend with a set of events in New York beginning at Utica-Rome Speedway on Friday that is in neither Utica nor Rome but in Vernon. From there, action shifts to Middletown’s Orange County Speedway on Saturday and then West Lebanon’s Lebanon Valley Speedway on Sunday.

“It’s really the start of another Speedweek for us,” Reutzel says. “We do these three nights, then we get one night off before five straight nights with the World of Outlaws in Ohio.”

Reutzel rides into New York with momentum on the side of the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team after a triumph at Lernerville Speedway last Friday and then a fifth-place finish at Sharon Speedway on Saturday.

And Reutzel will be the first to admit that the Sharon finish could have been a better one.

“I set fast time by three-tenths of a second,” Reutzel said of his qualifying run. “I guess I was thinking about something on the car, and I just drove right past the scales and back to the pits. I haven’t done that since the Micro Sprint days.”

With his time disallowed, Reutzel rallied from last in his heat race to third to secure the 13th starting position for the feature. Running around tenth midway through the feature, Reutzel got on the move and made his way up to fifth in the closing laps aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine.

“(Dale) Blaney was on his own level, but I think we had a second-place car,” Reutzel recalls. “It was a good rebound for us after getting off to a bad start.”

After setting quick time the previous night at Lernerville, Reutzel and the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions team dealt with some adversity to achieve their seventh win of the year.

“The motor had a stumble and it wouldn’t clear out, and we couldn’t figure out exactly what the issue was,” Reutzel explains. “So, after the Dash, we changed everything motor and fuel related.”

The hard work in the pit area paid off, with Reutzel needing just eight laps to race into the lead from seventh en route to another win.

“I was able to run right through the middle of the track and went straight to the lead,” Reutzel says of his fifth series win of the year.

Reutzel looks to chalk up more wins this weekend in the Empire State.

2019 Quick Stats: 39 races, 7 wins, 16 top-fives, 24 top-tens.

Next Up: All Star Circuit of Champions at Utica-Rome Speedway on Friday, Orange County Fair Speedway on Saturday and Lebanon Valley Speedway on Sunday. For those unable to attend, all three nights will be available live via PPV at www.speedshifttv.com.

Bernal Scores Corn Belt Nationals Top Ten Finish with Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports

Lonnie Wheatley, KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 12, 2019) – Making his first start with the Knoxville-based Baughman-Reutzel Motorspots No. 17 Sprint Car team, Hollister, California’s Ryan Bernal raced to a top-ten finish in last weekend’s Inaugural edition of the “Corn Belt Nationals” at Knoxville Raceway.

Bernal began the weekend by timing in eighth quickest among his group on Friday night as 51 cars made up the field and then earned the ninth starting position after battling to a third-place finish in his heat race.

From there, Bernal raced on to finish out the night in sixth. “It took me a while to get used to non-wing again, but I felt like we finally got going really well those last few laps,” the current NARC/KWS 410-c Sprint Car points leader commented afterward.

With cumulative points for the weekend the name of the game, Bernal secured the 12th starting position for the $20,000-to-win finale with a runner-up finish in his qualifying race after a time trial effort of 14th in his group.

Bernal picked off several positions in the non-stop feature and finished out the weekend with a nonth-place showing.

Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports is powered by invaluable partners including Folkens Brothers Trucking, Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution, Triple-X, Precision Catalyst, Hollywood Blasting & Coating, Beard Equipment, Nattress Construction, Fischer Body Shop, B&H Industrial Products, Momentum Racing Suspensions, Wings Unlimited, Walker Filtration, Bombshell Designs & Graphics and Simpson.

Carson McCarl – Reflecting From the Pits

Dallas, TX (July 12, 2019) – Taking my call from the pit area of Lee County Speedway on Thursday night with the Sprint Invaders, Carson McCarl took a bit of time to reflect on a solid weekend at the Knoxville Raceway. Friday night saw him score a top five and take the points lead in his 360, before coming back on Saturday to set quick time competing in the 410 class and coming home 11th in the night’s main event. After doing battle with the Sprint Invaders on Thursday night, he’ll head back to Knoxville on Saturday, looking to strengthen his points lead!

McCarl had the Cressman Enterprises/Jetco Electric #27 rolling well in qualifying last weekend, taking third on Friday in the 360 division, before setting quick time while flying the #24 on the wing on Saturday. “We were fast all weekend,” said Carson. “It felt great to get back in a 410 for the first time this year and go out and set quick time on Saturday, but we just continue to be pretty strong in qualifying with the 360, which has helped us have a strong season so far.”

On both nights, Carson would find himself starting on the outside of the third row in his heat race and advance a spot to finish 5th. “Our heat races were pretty similar both nights,” said McCarl. “Both were pretty uneventful, but I was able to move up a spot and earn enough points to keep myself in the invert, which is incredibly important.”

The luck of the draw would put him on the pole for the Friday night A-main in his 360, but some heavy hitters were able to run him down late. “We got off to a pretty good start from the pole on Friday night, but the car went away some around the halfway point,” said Carson. “Wayne [Johnson] and my dad [Terry McCarl] got around us and I just missed out on the podium when Clint [Garner] just edged me out at the line.”

While the invert was in his favor on Friday, it wouldn’t treat McCarl as kindly in the 410 division on Saturday night. Accumulating the second most points through preliminary action, the eight would be pulled for the invert and leave Carson starting on the inside of the 4th row. “Rolling off seventh in feature made the night quite a bit tougher,” said Carson. “I missed the bottom on the entry to one after taking the green and lost a few spots, then dad got by me late to leave us with an 11th place finish.”

While the night didn’t end as great as it started, Carson was happy with the weekend and with the extra seat time in his 410. “It was a pretty great weekend,” said McCarl. “We were able to take over the points lead in the 360 division on Friday and even though the feature didn’t quite go our way on Saturday, it should really help when I get back in car this weekend.”

Carson will be back at Knoxville this Saturday with #27 Cressman Enterprises/Jetco Electric ride after once again racing with the #17A on his wing Thursday night with the Sprint Invaders!

Ensign Prepares For Cascade Wingless Sprint Car Challenge Title Defense At Southern Oregon Speedway

By Don Martin II
White City, Oregon...Geoff Ensign and Ted Finkenbinder have announced their intention to make a run at a third-straight Cascade Wingless Sprint Car Challenge victory at Southern Oregon Speedway on August 3rd. The event, which is being presented by Herz Precision Parts, will be offering a $3,500 to win prize, and that's already prompted several drivers to make the commitment to come compete on the 3/10th mile clay oval once again.

Throughout his impressive career, Ensign has claimed victories in both Winged and Wingless Sprint Car racing. He won the Winged 360 Sprint Car championships at Petaluma and Watsonville in 2017 and was a winner in Wingless Sprint racing at the Turkey Night Classic in Ventura as well. This year, Ensign has been competing with the NARC/King of the West Series and is a Top 5 point contender so far.

When it comes to Wingless racing, the combination of Ensign and Finkenbinder has proven to be very impressive. They've won several races together, including the first two Cascade Wingless Sprint Car shows at Southern Oregon Speedway. Finkenbinder is well known for maintaining top-notch race cars, and he will also be inducted into the Calistoga Speedway Hall of Fame this September.

Joining Ensign on the trip will be Shayna Sylvia. Sylvia has achieved some impressive credentials of her own. In 2018, she won the Petaluma Speedway PitsStopUSA.com Wingless Spec Sprint championship, and she's won several Main Events at her home track. This will be her first trip to the White City racing facility.

The two drivers who have finished second in the most recent races, Cody Fendley and Jeffrey Hudson, are planning to compete again this year. It was Fendley collecting a $1,500 second place finish back in 2017. Though he took most of last season off, he plans to return and is a Main Event winner with the Wingless Spec Sprint class at Petaluma already this season. Hudson, who ranked second in the track's Winged Sprint Car class in 2016 and 2018, did a good job in picking up the $1,500 second last year. Though he's been running an IMCA Modified for Don Roemer this season, he's looking forward to the Wingless race.

Shawn Arriaga has achieved quite a bit of success running Winged Sprint cars through the years. Racing is in his family's blood as his grandfather was a Hardtop racer at the old Vallejo Speedway and his mother and father both competed in Sprint Cars throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Shawn has won championships at both Petaluma Speedway and Antioch Speedway. He appeared to be headed for a second place finish at last year's Cascade Sprint Car race when he hit the front wall and rolled. Still, Arriaga had fun, and he's looking forward to this show.

Joining him on the trip up will be second generation racer Ricky Brophy. Brophy has raced in both Wingless and Winged Sprint Cars through the years. He crewed for Arriaga last year at the big show, but he's excited about coming up and competing for the first time. The team will be giving away shirts to some of the fans this year as well.

Also confirmed for this race are Jeremy Wilson and Kevin Pendergrass. In 2017, Wilson came close to a Top 5 finish before settling for sixth. Pendergrass would end up ninth in the 20 car field. These are just some of the Stars anticipated for the big Show on August 3rd. more are rumored to be committing, including such Oregon standouts as Lindsay Barney, past Wingless Sprint champion Tim Alberding and Lance Hallmark. Barney finished third in the big show last year is a perennial title contender with the Oregon Wingless Sprint group.

A field of at least 15 to 20 competitors is anticipated for the big event. Entry for car and driver is $80, while pit passes for the crew are $30. Pit sign in is at 4:00 pm. Camping is allowed in the pits, though there are no hookups. For further information, go to www.southernoregonspeedway.com.

Patriots Return to Woodhull For Second Time In 2019

(Woodhull, NY) For the second time in 2019, the A-Verdi Storage Containers Patriot Sprint Tour will make a stop at the Woodhull Raceway for a $2,000 to win event coming up this Saturday.

When the Patriots last visited the 1/3-mile bullring back in May, it was Davie Franek and All-Star Circuit of Champion competitor, Gerard McIntyre stealing the show as the two battled for the win. In the end, it was Davie Franek coming out on top for his first career win at Woodhull. Ironically, it was both Franek’s and McIntyre’s first ever visit to the high banks.

Franek has been the driver to beat in all of 360 sprint car racing since deciding to race primarily in New York in 2019. With the Patriot Sprint Tour alone, Franek has notched wins at Land of Legends (Canandaigua), Woodhull, and Ransomville along with a couple top ten runs at Selinsgrove and Land of Legends.

Franek isn’t the only PST driver who has seen success in 2019 as Joe Trenca and Jordan Thomas are both have consistent and solid seasons despite no wins. Fortunately, both Trenca and Thomas are coming off career best finishes at Woodhull finishing fourth and sixth, respectively during the spring outing.

This will be the 22nd time in tour history the series will visit the Woodhull Raceway dating back to September 1, 2007 when the first race occurred. Chuck Hebing was the winner.

Grandstand gates for Saturday’s races open at 4:30 p.m. with the first green flag waving around 6:30 p.m. PST will be partnering with the Woodhull Junior Fan Club and will be holding an autograph session at the conclusion of their heats up until the Dash/Redraw.

Brent Kaeding Named Grand Marshal of 2019 Louie Vermeil Classic

by: Troy Hennig

ROSEVILLE, CA – (July 9, 2019) … The Calistoga Hall of Fame announced today that Brent Kaeding; the most decorated California sprint car driver of all-time, has been named Grand Marshal of the 12th Annual Louie Vermeil Classic at the famed ½ mile Calistoga Speedway dirt track.

The 12th Annual Louie Vermeil Classic continues to be held during the Labor Day weekend. The first of two nights of racing takes place Saturday, August 31st, and concludes on Sunday, September 1st. This year the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu series will join the AMSOIL USAC/CRA non-wing sprint cars for a double header night of racing. On Friday night, August 30th, the Calistoga Speedway Hall of Fame dinner will take place inside the Tubbs building at the Napa County Fairgrounds.

Tickets for either the Hall of Fame dinner or Louie Vermeil Classic can be purchased by calling (916) 773-7223 Tuesday through Sunday. Fans can also purchase general admission tickets by visiting online at https://hmc-promotions.ticketleap.com/2019-louie-vermeil-classic/

Campbell’s Brent Kaeding is a Hall of Fame member at Calistoga Speedway. He is a 13-time champion of both the Northern Auto Racing Club and the Golden State Challenge Series. Kaeding is the all-time leader in wins for both series. His 21 main event wins at Calistoga place him second all-time on the wins list. He is listed with seven wins as a car owner at Calistoga. Kaeding and Steve Kent are tied for the most Tribute to Gary Patterson wins at Calistoga. Kaeding is one of the few drivers to win a non-wing and winged sprint car race at Calistoga Speedway.

The sixty-one-year-old Kaeding said, “It’s a wonderful honor to be named Grand Marshall of the Louie Vermeil. I have so many great memories of racing there with a wing and without.” He went on to say, “The racing was always great but the things that stick out to me are all pre or post-race activities like the pancake breakfasts, racing during the fairs and drinking out in the pavilion until the sun came up.”

Kaeding was helped by legendary crew chief Billy Albini, leader of the hogs, who recently passed away on March 12th. This year the Calistoga Speedway has inducted Albini to join Kaeding in the Calistoga Hall of Fame. “I knew of Billy in the ‘70’s but we actually partnered up in 1987. We had a lot of success and won too many races to remember.” Kaeding added, “We miss Billy tremendously and will be honored to be a part of his Hall of Fame induction to Calistoga Speedway.”

 

 

C's Beverage Center Presents Oswego's 'Summer Championship' Saturday, July 13

OSWEGO, NY (July 11, 2019) - C’s Beverage Center of Oswego presents the annual ‘Summer Championship’ event at Oswego Speedway this Saturday, July 13, featuring racing for Novelis Supermodifieds, Pathfinder Bank SBS, and the 350 Supers.

With the championship schedule now half complete, Otto Sitterly and Anthony Losurdo continue to sit atop the standings with Losurdo sweeping both the Pathfinder Bank SBS and 350 Super main events one week ago to assume the points lead in both divisions.

The highly competitive Novelis Supermodified class has now seen six different feature winners in seven races including Otto Sitterly, Alison Sload, Jeff Abold, Dave Danzer, Dave Shullick Jr, and Michael Barnes.

Although there have been six different winners, along with fifteen drivers to finish in the top five, comparable to Losurdo, defending track champion Otto Sitterly has clearly been the dominant Supermodified. The John Nicotra No. 7 has finished fifth or better in every single race.

Through seven points features and only five remaining towards the track title, Sitterly continues his ‘drive for nine,’ leading second place Abold by over seventy five points. Third through fifth in points are Sload, Brandon Bellinger, and Joe Gosek.

Behind Gosek, Michael Barnes, Keith Shampine, Dave Gruel, Dave Shullick Jr, Logan Rayvals, and Dan Connors Jr. are in an extremely tight race for sixth through twelfth, with only twenty one points separating these drivers.

Despite Losurdo’s domination in last week’s Pathfinder Bank SBS Grand Prix, he leads Dave Cliff by a mere twelve points in the battle for the Small Block Super track title. Finding themselves fifty or more points back in the top five are David LaTulip, Cameron Rowe, and Josh Sokolic.

The closest race can be found in the growing 350 Supermodified division, which finds Losurdo at the top by just two points over Barry Kingsley. With four events in the books and four to go, it appears the title fight will come down to these two competitors.

Pit gates will be opened at 3:00pm for Saturday’s show, with grandstands opening at 4. Hot laps will get underway at 4:15 followed by time trials at 6:00, and heat racing at 6:45. The race order all evening will be Small Block Supers, 350 Supers, and Supermodifieds.

Ticket pricing is set at $20 for general admission, $25 for reserved seating, $35 for a pit pass, or $75 for seating in one of the speedway’s VIP suites. To purchase, call (315)-342-0646 or stop at the box office located at 300 East Albany Street in Oswego.

Action Sprint Tour Heads for Humberstone and Bob Deswiage Memorial on July 14

By Clayton Johns

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (July 11, 2019) – The Action Sprint Tour powered by RaceRivalz.com is headed to Humberstone Speedway for the rescheduled Bob Deswiage Memorial on Sunday, July 14. The race marks round four on the 2019 tour and was scheduled to be the second event on tour, but a June 2 rainout makes it the first appearance at the Port Colborne, Ont. oval this year. The event is being run in memory of Bob Deswiage, a former Humberstone Speedway driver and most recently a crew member for Team Turner Racing, who passed away last off-season. Deswiage was affectionately known as “Bobby the Pilot” to his team.

In memory of Bob, Team Turner Racing, who compete regularly in 360 Sprint Cars but have ties to several drivers on the Action Sprint Tour, will enter a car decaled to match one of Bobby’s street stock cars from his early days of racing. Current TTR crew member Brady Chastney will drive the car.

Entering the fourth race of the season, Beamsville’s Josh Hansen is the current point leader with two wins in three starts this season. The No.88h holds a 27-point advantage over a second-place tie between Liam Martin and Jacob Dykstra. Martin has a win to his credit that came back on June 8 at Southern Ontario Motor Speedway (SOMS).

Caledonia driver Ryan Hunsinger sits fourth in the championship standings with a 35-point gap to overcome against Hansen, but is also just eight points behind Martin and Dykstra. Hunsinger has three straight top-10 finishes to start the season on tour, including a pair of top-fives and a podium result at SOMS last month.

In fifth in Beamsville, Ont. driver Paul Klager. The driver dubbed the “Beamsville Bullet” has been a tough customer so far this season despite sitting 53 points back of the lead. He has a pair of top-10 finishes and his most recent outing was his best run of the season on tour, a fifth-place tally at Merrittville on Canada Day.

So far, 32 drivers have attempted to qualify for an Action Sprint Tour race. Rounding out the top-10 in the current standings is Jordan Hill of Ohsweken in sixth, who is just two points back of Klager for fifth. In seventh is Welland’s Blaine Barrow while Jerry Hill of Hagersville is eighth. Holding the final two spots are St. Catharine’s Al Gilletta Jr. and Brian Nanticoke of Ohsweken, respectively.

Race time on Sunday, July 14 is 6:30pm. For additional event information and gate times, visit www.HumberstoneSpeedway.com.

AFTER 5 LEAD CHANGES CLAUD ESTES III BAGS ‘BANDITS “FLAGS & FIREWORKS” LOOT at 82; HEART O’ TEXAS ON DECK THIS FRIDAY 7/12

Petty, TX (7/11/19) by DarinShort.com. Shelley & Tracy Peters 82 Speedway in Petty Texas has produced yet another exciting NCRA Sprint Car Bandits® (SCB) Series event this past Saturday with the running of the “Flags & Fireworks 25.”

Three different drivers would take their turn leading the event, including five lead changes overall, but when the checkers would fall veteran sprint car driver Claud “The Ambassador” Estes III would take the win by a handful of car lengths over Michael Day, with Zane Lawrence in tow. Estes III would collect $2,000 for the win. A few short caution flags dotted the feature event, and including the 4-wide parade lap, was completed in under 20 minutes. The three www.KoolTrikes.com heat races were won by Dale Wester, Claud Estes III and DJ Estes.

One of the highlights of the evening was the ‘Flags and Fireworks’ segment of intermission, where 30 of the cars racing at 82 Speedway came out on to the track sporting the flag of their choice (American, Military, Texas were the most popular) and parading around the track while the announcer played patriotic music to the appreciative crowd – all while a big ‘ol fireworks display took place in the infield of the track. A large contingent of the Sprint Car Bandits teams took part in this special segment of the event, and we’d like to thank them for their participation. The fans really enjoyed it. If you’d like to see some video highlights, check out our Facebook page at Sprint Car Bandits. We’d also like to thank the sprint car teams that took part in the pre-race Sprint Car Bandits Fan Fest.

During the drivers meeting, the race teams that had signed up for the SCB Fierce 15 driver rewards program received a combined total of $3,000 for their support of the series, and those funds were generated by the sale of t-shirts and the second round of the Smiley’s Racing 4-Pack Bonus distribution. The SCB would like to thank those teams for their tremendous support of the series!

The next visit for the Sprint Car Bandits to 82 Speedway will be on Saturday, September 28th.

Sprint Car Bandits MDA Muscling in the Dirt Night at Heart O’ Texas – THIS FRI. JULY 12, 8pm!

Elm Mott, TX (07/10/19) by DarinShort.com. The 360C.I. NCRA Sprint Car Bandits® (SCB) series continues the 2019 ‘DARE TO BE DIFFERENT’ Tour at the 1/4 mile 'bullring' oval of Heart O' Texas Speedway (HOT) in Waco THIS Friday, July 12th with the running of the “MDA Muscling in the Dirt” night.

:30 HOT REWIND: The last time the Sprint Car Bandits were at Heart O’ Texas Speedway this past March, a field of 30 teams would find a quickly changing track surface in the feature race would have drivers way, way up-on-the-wheel. A torrid pace was set with the top four drivers, none of which had a clear advantage, when on a restart Channin Tankersley would suddenly lose traction resulting in Michael Day making hard contact with the wall. On the restart third place starter Marcus Thomas would make his way to the point and take the first checkers of the SCB series for 2019.

RACE FANS: Make plans to arrive early at the track to take in the pre-race Sprint Car Bandits “Fierce 15” Fan Fest! It will take place directly next to the main ticket window from 6:45pm until about 7:15pm. There, you can meet the drivers of the Fierce 15, get selfies, purchase their 2019 t-shirt designs (get them autographed!) and get a good close look at the cars. SCB Fan Fest is an effort to help sprint car racing get back to the good ‘ol days when there was generally more fan interaction with the race teams. Back then it was common for most of the fans to go to the pits after the races to meet with the teams, and now in many cases the races at tracks don’t finish in time to make that feasible. This is an effort to fire back up that interaction by simply flipping the timing element. Pre-race Fan Fest takes place at every SCB series event in 2019.

If you’d like to get your brand new Fierce 15 driver t-shirts prior to Fan Fest, the new online store at www.SprintCarBandits.com is open and orders get shipped daily. Reminder, that proceeds from Fierce 15 driver apparel benefits each individual driver that is a part of the program, so please show your support by grabbing one when you can...and your support will help drivers better funded throughout the season. At the last series event, $3,000 in Fierce 15 driver loyalty rewards were distributed from t-shirt sales and the second round of the Smiley’s Racing 4-Pack Bonus programs.

For Heart O' Texas Speedway information, please click www.HeartOTexasSpeedway.com and note their address is 784 N McLennan Drive Waco, TX 76640 (just north of town right off of I-35); track phone is 254-829-2294. Action fires up at 8pm on July 12th.

RACE TEAMS: all sprint car teams that sign in will draw for heat race starting positions, regardless of their engine C.I. displacement (up to and including 360C.I.) and will receive passing points to determine their straight-up from points feature race starting position. All drivers make sure to read the posted rules at the series website prior to heading to the track.

The standard posted SCB purse and rules are in effect. All non-qualifiers or non-starters will each receive $100. There is no entry fee, no series membership fee and a $20 nightly draw fee. Drivers should go to www.SprintCarBandits.com prior to arrival for complete rules, purse and procedures information. The www.KoolTrikes.com heat races and www.SmileysRacing.com 4-Pack Bonus will also be a part of the racing program.

DARE TO BE DIFFERENT: Why are we calling this season the ‘DARE TO BE DIFFERENT’ tour? The SCB series has a unique rules package that allows teams to use their current equipment (especially in the engine compartment) yet curbing nightly tire expense...which helps equalize the competition with teams of varying budget sizes. The SCB “20° wing angle rule” also helps by freeing up the cars to be able to pass easier in many cases that also helps reduce excess tire and engine wear. Our ‘one rear tire all night long’ rule has not only saved racers thousands of dollars over the past three years, but to date, we’ve yet to have one tire fail (blow) due to excess tire wear in any feature race we’ve held.

All these small, yet effective changes, have been accomplished without the racers having to purchase something out of the ordinary. And we essentially haven’t changed the rules since the inception of the series at the end of 2015.

And let’s face it, since the events of 9/11/2001, a lot of the economics of the sport of dirt track racing have changed drastically (especially the cost of travel, track insurance, general crowd sizes, cost of racing components), yet there really hasn’t been much being done on a nationwide level to help counteract those economic impacts. We aren’t trying to say we’ve ‘fixed’ all those impacts, but at least we are doing something to help curb racer expenses – and it’s working.

Our rules package certainly has made for exciting and unpredictable racing outcomes – as there have been 18 different feature winners in the past 26 SCB events since 2018. When you add these components together, that’s a result of why we DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

If your business is interested in getting involved with the SCB series, please email SprintCarBandits@Outlook.com for more information. There are effective programs available for all sizes of budgets.

Thank you to the sponsors of the Sprint Car Bandits series: Smiley’s Racing Products & Hoosier Tire Southwest, Rodd Hanna's Air Performance, Gen-Tech at FixYourGenerator.com, Utility Trailer of Dallas, Inc., www.KoolTrikes.com, www.DarinShort.com and www.ShopTheBOSS.com .

This is the final Sprint Car Bandits event leading into our ‘SCB Summer Break.’ We will be putting out our fall events schedule later in August that will conclude the 2019 racing season…so be watching for that to come out at our website and Facebook pages.

If your track is interested in hosting the Sprint Car Bandits, please email SprintCarBandits@outlook.com as soon as possible. This schedule is subject to change, so please visit the series website prior to traveling. New dates will be published when they become available. We have built the Summer Break into the schedule, as many teams and fans like heading north this time of the year to catch the King’s Royal, Knoxville 360/410 Nationals and RaceSaver IMCA Sprint Car Nationals – to name a few. Now those teams and fans can do so without missing a beat with the SCB series.

Click www.SprintCarBandits.com for all series info, and we look forward to seeing you Friday July 12th when the Sprint Car Bandits ‘DARE TO BE DIFFERENT’ Tour returns to Heart O’ Texas Speedway, near Waco, Texas with high-powered 360C.I. winged Sprint Cars battling on the racy ¼ mile oval for the final time at HOT in 2019!

TKS Motorsports – It’s Time for Two

Dallas, TX (July 10, 2019) – Austin McCarl and the TKS Motorsports team bounced back from a long weekend at the Jackson Nationals by scoring a top five and tallying a great points night last Saturday at the Knoxville Raceway. This Saturday will have major ramifications in the points battle at Knoxville, as it will be double features for the 410s and plenty of points on the line for the Troy & Tammy Renfro-owned team!

Going out right in the middle of qualifying on Saturday night, Austin got the night kicked off with a fast lap. “We went out and qualified 3rd, which felt great since we’ve been struggling a bit in qualifying this season,” said McCarl. “Qualifying is always a crucial part of the night, but with how important it is for the Nationals, it feels good that we seem to have things going in the right direction.”

Picking up one spot in the Casey’s General Stores/Midwest Basement Systems #2KS during their heat race to finish fifth, the team acknowledged missing a bit on the setup. “We definitely had it too tight during the heat,” said Troy Renfro. “It ended up not effecting us too badly, as the invert for the feature ended up being an eight.”

Having accumulated the 4th most points during preliminary events, Austin would find himself rolling off on the inside of the third row for 20-lap main event. “We started fifth and I got out to a rough start,” said Austin. “We fell back to 8th or 9th early, which was largely due to my indecisiveness. The car felt pretty good running a few different lines on the track, but I couldn’t quite figure out where it was best.”

While he would fade early, McCarl would make his way back into the top five by the time the checkered flags waved. “I was able to get things figured out after both Brooke [Tatnell] and Trey [Starks] got past me and salvaged a pretty good points night, though some mistakes I made late probably cost us another spot,” Austin noted.

Renfro was happy with the clean weekend and the ability to roll the car into the hauler in one piece after ending the previous week upside down. “The bottom was pretty fast in the A-main, so passing was at a premium,” said Troy. “Austin did a nice job of getting back into the top five and it was nice to have a safe, clean night that sets us up well for this weekend. All in all, a pretty uneventful night, but in a good way.”

A busy weekend lays ahead for Austin and the TKS Motorsports team, as Saturday night will be double features with the makeup A-main from June 22nd. It will be a big night with double the money and double the points up for grabs!

White Captures Runner-Up Result in Close Battle at Big Sky Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BILLINGS, Mont. (July 10, 2019) - Harli White produced her third podium finish of the season last Saturday during an ASCS Frontier Region race at Big Sky Speedway.

"Johnny (Herrera) was racing at Big Sky and I thought I might as well race, too," she said. "It was good to get back to running well. We tried a couple of things with the car to see if we could get more speed and I think we fixed a couple of issues that we were having."

White won a heat race from the pole, which locked her into the feature redraw. She pulled the No. 2 to line up on the outside of the front row for the A Main.

"It was one lane around the bottom we thought," she said. "I got a terrible start and had to make up for it. (Jordon) Mallett got away and had half a track lead. I was running second so I just went to the top to try it and it actually worked. I railed the top and caught him in a couple of laps. I passed him and led the white flag lap. We came up to a lapped car on the last lap. He went to the bottom and I stayed on the top. The lapped car moved up enough for him to sneak by and he beat me by a bumper. It's nothing to hang our heads about. We were there competing for the win."

White's second-place finish marked her eighth top five of the season and it was a breath of fresh air following two frustrating weekends of racing in Washington.

"We struggled in Washington those two weeks," she said. "Nothing seemed to go right so hopefully we're back on track."

White returns to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour action this Friday and Saturday at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont., during the Grizzly Nationals. She finished second and eighth, respectively, at the track last year and was eighth and 13th in 2017.

"We have some notes from last year and we were competitive," she said. "I had a chance to win and ran second. Maybe we can take a picture with the bear this weekend. I don't really want to, but it means you won the race."

July 6 - Big Sky Speedway in Billings, Mont. - Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 2 (2).

Winning Wednesday- McCarl Snags 5th Win of 2019

PETERSEN MEDIA: A busy stretch of racing over the course of the last week saw Terry McCarl pick up his fifth win of the season as he claimed his second career Harry Neitzel Memorial on Wednesday night at Dodge County.

“It was a pretty good week for us,’ McCarl said. “I really enjoy getting to Dodge County and racing, its really a fun track and to win another Harry Neitzel Memorial is really special; its great that his family keeps putting that race on.”

Going quick time in time trials aboard the MonDak Portables/Ft. Union Supply and Trading/TheSnowPlow.com backed No. 4 machine, TMAC would run second in his heat race and find himself on the front row of the feature event.

Settling into second in the early laps behind Bill Balog, McCarl would do the veteran thing, and search around the speedway to see where his machine would work should they get into traffic.

An early restart saw McCarl capitalize on his efforts, as he got around Balog and left the rest of the field in his wake. Making one small mistake late in the race as he got over the cushion, McCarl would correct it quickly and race on to grab his fifth win of the season scattered among fiver different states.

Friday night McCarl and company went to Knoxville Raceway where they would compete in 360 action at the famed ½ mile speedway.

Earning quick time honors in his qualifying flight, McCarl’s third place finish in his heat placed him in the second row of the feature event. After an opening lap wreck, the 18-lap feature would go non stop as Carson McCarl would lead early over TMAC.

Slipping back to third at one point as Wayne Johnson got by, McCarl got up in the seat and made the middle work. On the race’s ninth lap, he would split Johnson and his son, Carson, to take over the race lead and begin motoring away.

Looking to grab his sixth win of the season as he took the white flag, McCarl would admittedly make a mistake in turns three and four coming to the checkered and it would leave the door open for Johnson to grab the win, and he would, as McCarl was relegated to a second place finish.



“We had an awesome car on Friday night, and I just made a complete rookie mistake on the last lap and let a win get away,” McCarl said. “If I stick the bottom we probably win, but I went back through the middle and lost some traction and finished second.”

Saturday night capped a busy week as McCarl returned to Knoxville Raceway on Saturday night for 410ci action as the Altoona, IA pilot chases the track championship.

Trying a few things in time trials, McCarl added they simply didn’t work as he wound up 13th quickest on the speed charts.

Grabbing a heat race win, McCarl would find himself on the inside of row-five for the feature event, and on this night the outside lane would be the preferred starting position.

With the race going non-stop, passing would be tough as the field would get strung out. Slipping back in the early stages as he searched for the better grip, McCarl would salvage the night with a 10th place finish.

Chris Paulsen Joins Turn 3 Media, LLC
Industry veteran, successful entrepreneur and passionate supporter of the SPEED SPORT brand will join the company management team
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Turn 3 Media, LLC has announced Chris Paulsen has joined as Managing Partner.

Paulsen will join co-founders Ralph Sheheen and Joe Tripp in leading Turn 3 Media’s ownership and executive team — helping guide the company as it continues to break new ground with a growing portfolio of print, digital and television media products and services. Paulsen will also play a key role in developing new business and strategic partnership opportunities.

Paulsen has done pretty much everything there is to do during his 46-year career in motorsports, which began as a volunteer crew man at age 13. Since then Paulsen has won countless sprint car and Indy car races as a mechanic, car builder and crew chief, having worked with legendary drivers such as Billy Vukovich, Roger Rager, Danny Smith, Sammy Swindell, Pancho Carter, Al Holbert, Johnny Rutherford, Gordon Johncock, Johnny Parsons and Billy Boat, to name only a few.

Paulsen has been an innovator both as a car builder and racer and as a businessman.

Paulsen opened C&R Racing in December of 1988. The company started by serving Indy car teams in the Indianapolis area. Between 1989 and 2000, C&R Racing became one of the most diversified fabrication businesses in motorsports. While C&R machined many parts, it specialized in suspensions and cooling systems.

Paulsen and C&R Racing created the True Grit Award in 1998 and it is handed out annually to Indy car and NASCAR crew members during the annual stops at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

C&R Racing’s business really boomed when the company began producing radiators for NASCAR stock cars in 1991. To this day, C&R dominates the entire NASCAR field in Cup, Xfinity and Truck series.

C&R moved into a new 35,000-square-foot facility in 2000 and opened a second facility in Mooresville, N.C., in 2005, eventually building its own facility there in 2007.

Paulsen and his wife, Debbie, sold C&R Racing to the Australia-based PWR Group in 2015. C&R/PWR are recognized as the international leaders in motorsports cooling solutions.

Paulsen, who has authored numerous technical columns in SPEED SPORT through the years, also co-founded the Indiana Motorsports Ass’n in 2004 and was a partner in creating the IMIS Trade Show in Indianapolis in 2008, which was sold to SEMA/PRI in 2012.

“I’m really excited to become a part of the SPEED SPORT team,” Paulsen said. “SPEED SPORT has played a very important role in my racing career as it has with so many others. I started getting SPEED SPORT when I was 9 years old. As a kid honing my skills, I moved all over the country working with various race teams, car builders, etc. I took SPEED SPORT with me everywhere. Chris Economaki told me I held the record for the most address changes of any subscriber. I’ve kept my subscription going since Joe and Ralph relaunched the brand, and am extremely impressed with what they’ve built. SPEED SPORT is an iconic motorsports media brand that is just as relevant to today’s young race fan as it was for me in my youth.”

“I have the highest respect for Chris and am thrilled that he’s joined our team,” said Turn 3 Media CEO and co-founder Joe Tripp. “The timing couldn’t be better. We have a dedicated, enthusiastic team and our business is growing rapidly. The experience, leadership and passion Chris has will be a huge asset to help guide us as we continue to grow.”

“Chris has been a longtime supporter of SPEED SPORT and a great friend,” said Ralph Sheheen, Turn 3 Media president and co-founder. “He was always there for us through his previous ventures. Many of our very first meetings were held in his Mooresville headquarters when we didn’t have an office. So I can’t really say he’s a great addition to the family — he’s been like family since day one.”

The Paulsens reside in Wyoming, where they enjoy the outdoors and restoring race cars.

“Since selling my company, C&R Racing, Debbie and I have moved to Wyoming. I’ve built a new shop where I will spend time doing what I love; metal work and race car restoration," noted Paulsen. "We are also huge off-road enthusiasts and love desert racing. We are committing time to running Baja with NORRA and playing in the dirt.”

Andrews Earns Runner-Up Result at Fremont Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - FREMONT, Ohio (July 10, 2019) - Fresh off his first win of the year, Chris Andrews scored his best result of the season at Fremont Speedway last Saturday when he finished second after a rough outing the night before at Attica Raceway Park.

The weekend began on Friday at the oval in Attica, Ohio, where Andrews' night started well as he qualified third quickest and drove from third to second in his heat race, putting him into the redraw for the feature. The two-time Attica Raceway Park track champion spun on the opening lap and came from the tail to score a 13th-place finish.

"At the start guys got bouncing over the cushion and I checked up and got drilled from behind and spun out," he said. "I got caught in the middle of a hornets' nest. It's tough to come from the tail in these deals. But the car was once again really good in the slick."

The ensuing night a rain shower just as the gates opened at Fremont Speedway gave the racers a different racing surface than they have encountered the previous couple of weeks. Andrews again qualified third quickest and drove from fourth to second in his heat, putting him in the inversion for the feature.

"We led some laps early and Buddy (Kofoid) just flat drove around me," he said. "It's frustrating because you drive as hard as that kid is and he's still five miles per hour faster than you. He's got some phenomenal talent for such a young kid. But we were able to finish second. We still have a ways to go to get better at Fremont when it's dry slick."

Andrews currently sits fifth in the Kistler Racing Products/All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group championship standings. He is only 23 points behind in the 410ci standings at Attica Raceway Park. His second-place finish Saturday at Fremont Speedway vaulted him from 10th to seventh in the track's standings.

"We have a good shot at the Attica title, which would be very cool," he said. "Not many drivers have multiple championships at Attica, let alone in three different rides."

Andrews will compete this Friday at Attica Raceway Park and Saturday at Fremont Speedway with the AFCS. Then he will challenge the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series drivers at Attica Raceway Park next Tuesday during the 31st annual Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic Presented by Racing Optics.

"I really think we have a good shot at a win this weekend and doing well against the Outlaws," he said. "I just have to be aggressive and not make a mistake qualifying to put us in a good position every night."

QUICK RESULTS -

July 5 - Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (3); Feature: 13 (9).

July 6 - Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (4); Feature: 2 (2).

Andrews would also like to thank Kistler Racing Products, Griewahn's Concrete and Scotty's Body Shop for their continued support.

 

 

Trenca Joining All Stars at Utica-Rome and Patriot Sprint Tour at Woodhull

Inside Line Promotions - FULTON, N.Y. (July 10, 2019) - Joe Trenca will compete in both 410ci and 360ci winged sprint car competition this weekend.

The Mucci Motorsports driver is slated to race with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions on Friday at Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon, N.Y., and with the Patriot Sprint Tour on Saturday at Woodhull Raceway in Woodhull, N.Y.

"We have to start the night off by timing in well with the All Stars," he said. "In order to put ourselves in contention to battle for a top 10 we need to qualify well. And we're excited to return to Woodhull. I think we had our best finish ever there the last time."

Trenca is coming off a frustrating three-race weekend with the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints.

It began on Thursday at Land of Legends Raceway in Canandaigua, N.Y., where he qualified fifth quickest in his group, placed fourth in a heat race, ended second in the dash and gained two positions to finish 12th in the main event.

The team ventured to Brewerton Speedway in Brewerton, N.Y., on Friday. Trenca was third quickest in his group before he scored a third-place finish in a heat race. He capped the night with an 11th-place outing in the A Main.

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Fulton Speedway, where Trenca qualified fourth quickest in his group. He placed third in a heat race and 13th in the main event.

"It was a weird weekend," he said. "We changed a lot of stuff and the car never changed. I'm just baffled. We worked late at night and early in the morning and we just were no good during feature-time. We couldn't find forward drive. We did some stuff to the car this week so hopefully we get back to running well."

Hagar Wins Fourth Race of the Season to Highlight Stout Week

Inside Line Promotions - LEXINGTON, Tenn. (July 10, 2019) - Derek Hagar earned his fourth win of the season and he added two more podium finishes to his record during a one-week span.

It began on Sunday, June 30, when Hagar raced at North Alabama Speedway in Tuscumbia, Ala, with the USCS Series.

"We were supposed to race there on Saturday, but it got rained out," he said. "It turned into a day race on Sunday. We started first in the dash and finished second. The heat was better for us, as we lined up sixth and made it up to third. We started third in the feature and were able to finish second."

Last Wednesday started Hagar's three-race weekend with the USCS Series. He invaded Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., where Hagar started first in the dash and finished second. In the heat race, he started sixth and finished second, which lined him up on the pole for the feature.

"I was really tight in the beginning of the race and fell back to fourth," he said. "As the race went on the car got better and we were able to make our way back to second. We had a winning car. I just wasn't able to get through traffic at the right times to stay with the leader."

The action shifted to Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Miss., on Friday. Hagar won the dash from the pole and claimed a heat race victory after starting third.

"We started on the outside front row in the A Main," he said. "Danny Smith led the first lap, but I got around him on Lap 2. We led the race from there and brought home the victory. We had a really good car and I always enjoy running at that track. It really fits our driving style and the atmosphere is something else."

The busy week wrapped up on Saturday at Lexington 104 Speedway, where Hagar won the dash and a heat race before heavy rain hit the track right before the feature. Unfortunately, the race had to be canceled.

Hagar will head to Riverside International Speedway this Saturday for the Make-A-Wish Race honoring Sonny Sayre and Craig Guy.

QUICK RESULTS -

June 30 - North Alabama Speedway in Tuscumbia, Ala. - Dash: 2 (1); Heat race: 3 (6); Feature: 2 (3).

July 3 - Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. - Dash: 2 (1); Heat race: 2 (6); Feature: 2 (1).

July 5 - Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Miss. - Dash: 1 (1); Heat race: 1 (3); Feature: 1 (2).

Lawrence Charges to Podium Finish With Sprint Car Bandits Series

Inside Line Promotions - PETTY, Texas (July 10, 2019) - Zane Lawrence returned to action last Saturday at 82 Speedway, which hosted a Sprint Car Bandits Series show.

Lawrence finished where he started in a heat race - fourth - during his debut at the oval.

"We weren't very good in the heat race," he said. "It felt like I was on an ice rink. I came in after the heat and made a lot of changes for the feature."

Lawrence's heat race result started him on the inside of the seventh row for the feature. He began his charge to the front right away, advancing a total of 10 positions to finish third. It marked his first podium result of the season.

"The track and the car were both really good in the feature," he said. "It had two grooves of racing and we were able to pick off positions throughout the feature. The changes must have been the right ones for us to score our first podium of the season."

Lawrence's next race will be this Saturday at Abilene Speedway in Abilene, Texas, with the Texas Sprint Series.

"We've had a pretty good season so far," said Hill, who currently sits 10 th in the ASCS National Tour standings. "Our results have shown improvement over last year.

Hill noted that she has improved as a driver during her second season as a regular on the ASCS National Tour.

"I'm pretty happy with the laps I've been running," she said. "I feel I'm improving. There are some things I need to get better at, but overall I'm happy with the way the season is going."

Hill is hoping to continue that improvement at the Grizzly Nationals this weekend, where she scored a pair of top-15 finishes in her first appearance at the track last year.

"I'm excited to return to the Grizzly Nationals this year," she said. "I had a good time there last year. I think we finished 12th one night, which wasn't too bad for our first time there. Hopefully we can improve on that this year."

Strickland’s Brantford Chevrolet presents Kids Bike Night on July 12
By Clayton Johns

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (July 10, 2019) – Following a rainy finish to Ohsweken Speedway’s July kick off, the Six Nations oval is gearing up for a busy night of action on Friday, July 12 as Strickland’s Brantford Chevrolet presents Kids Bike Night. The popular kids bike night will see all kids who enter the main grandstands receive a free draw ticket to win one of several bikes donated by Strickland’s Brantford Chevrolet.

The Vintage Cars make their return to Ohsweken Speedway for their only visit of the year. All four Ohsweken weekly divisions will also be in action, including the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars, Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks. The HRW Automotive Mini Stocks will run double features as they make-up their event from July 5 that was postponed due to rain late in the evening.

Adult admission is just $14 while Seniors (65+) and Youths (13-17) are only $10. Kids aged 7-12 are only $3 and Kids 6 and under are free. Race time is 7:30pm. The pit gates open at 5:00pm before the main grandstand opens at 6:00pm. For the full schedule of Ohsweken Speedway events, visit www.ohswekenspeedway.ca.

Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars

Through seven races, the points battle in the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Car division is a nail biter, to say the least. On the strength of a win and seven consecutive top-10 finishes, Fenwick, Ont. pilot Jim Huppunen leads the championship standings. His lead, however, is just two markers over Scotland, Ont. wheelman Dylan Westbrook, who has claimed three wins, but suffered one DNF three weeks ago that slowed his championship pace.

Just two points behind Westbrook, and only four points off the lead, is the ‘Highlight Man’ Mack DeMan. The Mississauga, Ont. native has lived up to his name so far this year. After crashing out of the feature two weeks ago, DeMan responded to adversity last week and drove from 21st to a fifth-place finish in the main event. Tilsonburg, Ont. native Cory Turner occupies fourth in the standings, 20 points back off the lead and like Huppunen, has registered seven top-10 finishes to begin the campaign. In fifth is his brother, Ryan Turner, who has also managed to be in the top-10 each night he has unloaded the No.91. Rounding out the top-10 are Mitch Brown, Scott Kreutter, Holly Porter, Josh Hansen and Shane Ross.

Strickland’s Brantford Chevrolet Crate Sprint Cars

The Strickland’s Brantford Chevrolet Crate Sprint Cars also have a tight race at the top of the standings with two drivers emerging in a heated battle up front. Brantford’s Lucas Smith is enjoying a successful sophomore season and leads the standings by two points over Fonthill driver Steven Beckett. Smith’s win on June 21 is the difference maker so far as Beckett has recorded one more top-10 finish than Smith thus far. Jesse Costa sits third in the standings, 19 points back of the lead. Teenage rookie Nick Sheridan currently sits fourth, 15 points back of Costa and Paul Klager, who notched his first career Sprint Car win on June 28, is fifth in the standings and trails the aforementioned Sheridan by just four points.

Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks

Dave Bailey has taken a commanding lead atop the Middleport Mechanical Standings. Through seven events, the defending champion out of Hagersville, Ont. has three wins and has not finished outside the top-five in seven starts and has opened a 53-point lead. In second is Trevor DeBoer of Hagersville, Ont. who has two wins and seven top-10 finishes, including three top-five tallies. Caistor Centre’s Jim Lampman is 27 points back of DeBoer and holds a nine-point advantage over Vittoria’s Ryan Beagle who occupies fourth with a win to his credit. One point back of Beagle is Jerseyville’s Logan Shwedyk, who rounds out the top-five.

HRW Automotive Mini Stocks

The HRW Automotive Mini Stocks once again have double features on the schedule. Last week, they completed their Feature from June 28 before the regularly scheduled event, which was last on the program, was washed out. The July 5 feature, which already had a lineup set, will be the first race of the nice and will see Trevor Want and Jeremy May pace the field to the green flag from the front row.

Kyle Wert leads the HRW Automotive Mini Stock championship standings with a 29-point gap over York’s Tim DeBoer. Dusty DeBoer is currently third, 17 points back of Tim, but holds just a three-point advantage over fourth-place Tristan Da Silva. Rounding out the current top-five is Waterford’s Wayde Thorne, who is 63 points back of the lead but trails Da Silve by only 14 markers.

Sprint Doubleheader on Tap at Michaels Mercer Raceway

(Mercer, PA July 9, 2019): The most anticipated weekend weekend on the schedule at Michaels Mercer Raceway is upon us. The exciting Winged Sprint Cars will make their return for a doubleheader! Friday's action will feature the Racesaver 305 Sprint Cars presented by Hard Welding and Fabrication and River Valley Butcher Block. Then, on Saturday, the 410 Sprint Cars will be to main attraction. This weekend, July 12 and 13, is made possible by Buddy Barris Trucking, and it will serve as the memorial event for the popular driver, the late Buddy Barris.
Providing support each night will be Barris Trucking Modified Lites, together with Dwarf Cars, the Ray's Racing Collectibles and Eperthener's Auto Wrecking Mini Stocks, and the 270 Micros.

Former track champion, Jack Sodeman, Jr., from nearby North Jackson, OH, will be one of the 410 Sprint drivers expected on Saturday, along with other regional talents like Brandon Spithaler, Michael Bauer, Carl Bowser, Brandon and Brent Matus, and many more!

On Friday, Jacob Gomola will put his points lead on the line in the Racesaver 305 Sprints. He has a slim three point advantage over Kyle Colwell. But Will Fleming and Greg Dobrosky are within shooting distance of the leaders. So is exciting teenager Chase Matheny! Who will take home the bacon?

Another close points battle is shaping up in the Barris Trucking Modified Lites. Shane Webb has an identical three point lead over impressive Vivian Jones. Dusty Frantz and Teddy Williams will be among the top challengers. With two nights of action for these racers, there could be some shake-ups in the standings.

Slowly but surely, Joe Campbell is padding his point lead in the Mini Stocks presented by Ray's Racing Collectibles and Eperthener's Auto Wrecking. Steve Longwell, Sr. is also having an outstanding season, and Mike Porterfield just got his first win! Over a score of Mini Stock drivers are expected and you will certainly want to stick around to see them in competition.

Mike Borawiec, Jeff Haefke, Todd Reusser, and a dozen or more other 270 Micro drivers will bring their scaled-down Sprint Cars to the tricky Mercer oval. Those racers always enjoy the challenge of the unique configuration, and they provide lots of excitement for the fans.

On both nights, the Pit gates will open at 4 p.m. and spectator gates will open an hour later. Practice sessions will start at 6:30 and racing will commence at 7 p.m. Come out early to get your favorite seats, as large crowds are expected to welcome back the Sprint Cars!

Children under 13 years of age will be admitted for free, so long as they are accompanied by a paying patron. Pit passes will be $30, except for seniors (60+) and children (10 and under), who will be admitted for $25.

Fans will be pleased to know that there will be plenty of free camping available for the weekend. There will be no hook-ups available, however.

Next weekend, July 20, will be the momentous return of the Diehl Ram Big Block Modifieds, as they will take on the stars of the BRP Modified Tour. That will be one of the highest-paying races in the region this season, so Modified fans will want to come out to see the best of the best in action after several weeks of inactivity.

John Naida  Sprints On Dirt.

ERIE, MI (July 6, 2019) - In November 1979, I called a meeting of interested people to see what could be done about the lack of dirt-track sprint car racing in Michigan. That meeting was the birth of Sprints On Dirt. In its first season, 1980, SOD was a huge success. Since then, we have never looked back, dealing with economic downturns, wannabe series challengers, and the same issues that challenge racing everywhere.

Over the years, Sprints On Dirt has been managed by several series directors including our son Dain and later, our daughter Adrianna (Naida) Irwin.

In the fall of 2015, I announced that Sprints On Dirt was taking a bold step, changing from a 360 cubic inch organization to a series with no engine limits. My wife, Kathie and I always owned SOD together and we took over full active management to direct SOD into this new era.

The decision was not a spur of the moment decision. Three years of research went into the business plan that the new Sprints On Dirt was based on. There were clear signs that car counts at upper level sprint car classes would decline, and they have; just look at even some strongholds of sprint car racing getting mid-teen car counts now. Recent closing of several dirt tracks is another worrisome trend. I know someone will say “but it isn’t happening here,” and they may be right, at least for now. What I am talking about is the overall trends in racing, and it applies not only to sprint cars, but other premier classes on both dirt and paved tracks.

One of the biggest keys to SOD’s success is its single right rear and single left rear spec tires. Hoosier Racing Tire designed, developed, tested, and built the tires that have played a critical role in the success of SOD’s “beyond limits” format. Without Hoosier’s effort and unending support, SOD’s success would not have been possible.

The cost of racing is an issue that has been at the heart of SOD’s “beyond limits” format. While there will always be detractors, facts prove that SOD has accomplished its objectives.

While people focus on 305, 360, and 410 engines, few of them talk about the variety within all engine sizes. The 410s that won 2016 and 2017 SOD point championships cost the owners under $8,000 each. These engines, older 410-12s, are drastically underpowered in comparison to state-of-the-art 410s. There are many of these engines, and under SOD rules, they are a race winning bargain.

Misconceptions about the SOD “beyond limits” format have been met head-on and proven false.

MISCONCEPTION: Only 410s are competitive because they win a majority of races.

FACT: Since the majority of SOD competitors have 410 engines, it only makes sense that if the SOD rules work, 410s would win a majority of races. Capable drivers have shown that 360s can win races and 410-12s can win championships.

MISCONCEPTION: SOD rules can make winners out of less skillful or less talented drivers.

FACT: SOD rules do put more of a premium on driver skill, but you need the skill to make use of it. Skillful drivers shine with SOD.

MISCONCEPTION: SOD tires are terrible.

FACT: If you don’t have set up skills necessary to win, of course you can blame the tires. Skilled teams have no problems with the tires. The Hoosier spec tires are very reasonably priced and work very well. The fact that there is only one right rear and one left rear drastically reduces tire and wheel cost.

Over the last three seasons, SOD has paid out nearly a quarter million dollars in contingencies. The cash and awards have all come from legitimate marketing partners who believed in SOD. Our business model, based on honesty, integrity, and hard work, has enabled SOD to promote our partners at a level that many other series can only envy. SOD’s aggressive online presence has served our marketing partners, promoters, fans, and race teams very well.

The future certainly looks challenging for not only SOD but all oval track racing. If properly managed, SOD is fully capable of overcoming any challenges it faces, just like it has in the past.

Kathie and I have accomplished everything we set out to do. The SOD business plan was for Kathie and me to take SOD as far as we could in three years, and we have done that. Last December, we sold Sprints On Dirt but remained involved until July 1st to ensure a smooth transition for the new ownership. We can only hope and pray that the new owners have what it takes to maintain the status SOD holds in the world of oval track racing.

We express our most sincere appreciation to all our partners and friends for being part of the SOD family. We hope that we have served you well.

Best regards,

John Naida

 

 

Up to Speed: World of Outlaws at Wilmot Raceway

WILMOT, Wisc. — July 9, 2019 — For the fourth consecutive year, the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will take to the track at Wilmot Raceway for the running of the Badger 40. Last year’s event, saw Brent Marks score a dominating win, which was the first of his career with the Outlaws. That victory snapped a three-race win streak that David Gravel has been on at the track. The event will mark the final visit of the season for the Outlaws to the state of Wisconsin. This edition of Up to Speed sets the stage for the Badger 40.

The track

Wilmot Raceway is a semi-banked, one-third mile. The track record of 12.570-seconds was established by Paul McMahan on July 29, 2017.

Past winners

Brent Marks took the lead from Daryn Pittman on the 13th lap and stayed out front for the rest of the 40-lapper to score the win last year.

David Gravel won back-to-back-to-back races at Wilmot in 2014, 2016 and 2017. The 27-year-old is the winningest driver with the series at the track located at the Kenosha County Fairgrounds.

Mark Dobmeier won the inaugural World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event at Wilmot in 2006, while filling in for Brooke Tatnell. Dobmeier battled Daryn Pittman and Jeremy Campbell on the last lap for the win.

Pittman won at Wilmot Raceway in 2008, taking the lead early, before Chad Kemenah got by for the top spot. Pittman re-took the lead just past the halfway point and would stay out front to earn his first Wilmot win.

One to remember

Brent Marks will always remember his trip to Wilmot Raceway in 2018, as that marked the first win of his career with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series. The native of Myerstown, Pa., started fifth and took the lead from Daryn Pittman on the 13th lap and quickly pulled away. In one of the most dominating performances all season, Marks lapped up to and including the ninth-place finisher.

One of the few

Wilmot Raceway is one of just a handful of tracks on the World of Outlaws schedule where 10-time and defending series champion Donny Schatz has not won at. The North Dakota native has a pair of runner-up finishes and has been in the top-10 in all six previous races for the series at the track.

Six pack

Daryn Pittman has finished in the top-10 in each and every one of the previous six Outlaws races at Wilmot. Along with his win in 2008, the former series champion has two additional podium finishes, including last year, when he led the opening 12 laps of the 40-lap race.

Running up front

Brad Sweet has finished fourth or better in all three of his previous starts at Wilmot Raceway. The defending winner of the Knoxville Nationals and current series point leader, finished fourth in each of his first two starts at Wilmot and was on the podium in third last year.

Veteran presence

Jason Sides has made five starts in his career at Wilmot Raceway, while Kraig Kinser has taken the green flag on four occasions. Kinser has a best finish of fifth, with that coming in 2014. Sides has a pair of top-10 runs, including in his debut at the track in 2008. Sides will have Tim Kaeding as a teammate at Wilmot this weekend.

Plenty of speed

Sheldon Haudenschild has made two starts with the World of Outlaws at Wilmot Raceway and has turned in solid performances in both. He ran fourth in his first Outlaws starts at the track, during his rookie season of 2017. The fourth-generation driver followed that up with a seventh-place showing last year.

Shark attack

Logan Schuchart and Jacob Allen, who are teammates at Shark Racing, have each made four starts in their respective careers at Wilmot Raceway. Schuchart has fared well at the track, recording three top-10 finishes, including a sixth-place showing in 2016. Allen has shown speed at Wilmot, battling for the lead in the early portion of the 2016 edition of the Badger 40, before a spin put him at the rear of the field, where he worked his way back forward to finish just outside of the top-10.

Third time is the charm

Ian Madsen will make his third start at Wilmot Raceway with the World of Outlaws. The defending Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year Award winner has finished 13th and 21st in his first two starts at the fairgrounds track and looks to better that this season. Madsen has one win thus far in 2019 and is eighth in points.

Looking for redemption

Carson Macedo made his Wilmot Raceway debut in 2017 with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Series. He was leading that race, when he jumped the cushion in turn one and spun. He wound up finishing 16th. Macedo, who is the leading contender this year for the Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year Award, has won twice in 2019 and is seventh in points.

Defending their home turf

A number of drivers who compete with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Car Series are expected to be in attendance at Wilmot Raceway for the Badger 40. Leading the way is current series point leader Bill Balog, who has three wins with the series this season and has finished in the top-10 in each of the first 10 races. Scotty Thiel, who is second in points, won an IRA race at Wilmot earlier this season as did Jeremy Schultz, who is third in the standings.

All open wheel action

The AutoMeter Wisconsin wingLESS Sprint Series will also be in action at Wilmot Raceway on Saturday, July 13, along with the IRA Lightning Sprints.

Tickets

Fans can save $5 on General Admission tickets, when purchased at participating O’Reilly Auto Parts locations.

Tickets for the Badger 40, featuring the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin on Saturday, July 13 can be purchased online at slspromotions.ticketforce.com or by calling SLS Promotions at 815-344-2023 and at the track on race day.

Up to Speed: World of Outlaws at Hartford Speedway

HARTFORD, Mich. — July 9, 2019 — The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series makes their only trip of the season to Michigan this week for a visit to Hartford Speedway on Friday, July 12. The series has raced at the track eight times over the years and has seen a different driver visit victory lane in each of those events. David Gravel was the most recent victor in 2017, in what marked the series’ first race on the three-eighths-mile configuration, of what used to be a sprawling half-mile. This edition of Up to Speed sets the stage for the “Battle of Michigan” at Hartford Speedway, which serves as the series only visit of the season to the state of Michigan.

The track

Hartford Speedway is a three-eights-mile, which was re-configured a couple of years ago from its original half-mile layout. The track record of 13.731-seconds was established by David Gravel on July 28, 2017. Gravel also holds the track record on the former half-mile.

Special Guest

Kasey Kahne, who retired from NASCAR following the 2018 season, will be a special guest at Hartford Speedway. The Washington native will sign autographs from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Kahne owns the No. 49 of current series point leader Brad Sweet as well as the No. 9, which is being driven by Australian James McFadden, while Kahne recovers from injury. McFadden will be competing at Hartford.

Past winners

David Gravel was victorious in 2017, which marked the series’ first race on the three-eighths-mile version of the track. Gravel and Brad Sweet traded the lead three times, with the former taking the lead for the final time with just three laps remaining.

Shane Stewart won in 2016 in the last race on the half-mile for the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series. The veteran driver jumped into the lead at the start of the race from the outside of the front row and held off Donny Schatz for the victory.

Joey Saldana was victorious at Hartford Speedway in 2011. Dave Blaney, the 1995 World of Outlaws champion won the series debut at the track in 1996, while three-time series titlist Sammy Swindell, also won that season at Hartford. Steve Kinser, the 20-time series champion, as well as two-time title winner Jason Meyers are also past winners at Hartford Speedway, as is Brian Paulus.

The players

The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series has 13 card-carrying members this year, led by Brad Sweet, who has a series-best nine wins. Donny Schatz is currently second in points, with David Gravel third, Daryn Pittman fourth and Logan Schuchart fifth. Shane Stewart currently sits sixth in the standings, followed by Carson Macedo in seventh, Ian Madsen in eighth, Sheldon Haudenschild in ninth and Brent Marks in 10th. Kraig Kinser, Jacob Allen and Jason Sides are also on the tour again in 2019.

Oh, so close

Hartford Speedway is one of the few tracks on the World of Outlaws schedule where 10-time series champion Donny Schatz has never won. The North Dakota native has three runner-up finishes at the track. Schatz has finished sixth or better in all five of the main events he has qualified for at Hartford. Schatz is a past winner in the state of Michigan at both Berlin Raceway and I-96 Speedway.

One man band-plus one (this weekend)

Jason Sides has competed in each of the last six races the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series has contested at Hartford Speedway. The native of Bartlett, Tenn., has a best finish of seventh in 2016, which was the last race the series ran on the former half-mile. Sides is a past winner in the state of Michigan at I-96 Speedway. The veteran driver will run a two car operation at Hartford as Californian Tim Kaeding rejoins the team for the weekend.

Among the top-10

Daryn Pittman and Kraig Kinser have each finished among the top-10 in four of their respective five-career starts at Hartford. Pittman, the 2013 series champion, finished a career-best fifth in 2003 and again in 2016. Kinser finished fourth in 2005 and was fifth in the series most recent visit to Hartford in 2017.

Back-to-back

David Gravel has won each of the last two years in the state of Michigan. He was victorious in the series most recent visit to Hartford Speedway in 2017 and picked up a win at I-96 Speedway last year. Gravel has finished sixth or better in all three of his Outlaws starts at Hartford. Gravel won both of those races driving for the CJB Motorsports, the team that Shane Stewart is driving for this year. Stewart will look to extend the team’s win streak in the state of Michigan. The Oklahoma native won at Hartford in 2015, driving for Kyle Larson Racing.

On the podium

Brad Sweet and Logan Schuchart both finished on the podium in 2017 at Hartford. Sweet led twice for a total of 25 laps, before finishing second to David Gravel in the 30-lap contest. Schuchart methodically worked his way from the eighth starting spot to finish third.

Moving on up

Brent Marks finished fourth at Hartford in 2017, which marked the best finish of his rookie season with the Outlaws. The young Pennsylvanian started 15th and charged from the middle of the pack to finish among the top-five. Marks broke through last season, earning his first-career Outlaws win and following that up with two more triumphs.

A handful of starts

Sheldon Haudenschild has made three starts at Hartford Speedway in his career, while Jacob Allen has made two. Haudenschild’s has made two of those appearances with the All Star Circuit of Champions, picking up a win, along with an Outlaws event. Allen has made both of his starts at the track with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

Lone rookie

Carson Macedo, is the leading contender for the Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year Award with the World of Outlaws. The California native, who drives for Kyle Larson Racing, competed with the Outlaws at Hartford Speedway in 2017, finishing 12th in that event. Macedo has a pair of wins this season and is seventh in points.

First timer

Ian Madsen, the reigning Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year Award winner with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series, will be making his Hartford Speedway debut this weekend. The Australian has raced with the series in the past in Michigan at I-96 Speedway. Madsen has one win this season and is eighth in points.

Pokorski Motorsports nets top-10 at Dodge County, looks to rebound after TNT wreck

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 9, 2019 – Paul Pokorski and his Pokorski Motorsports team competed in a pair of Midwest Sprint Car Association events with varying results at two very different tracks in opposite parts of the state during the Fourth of July holiday week.

On Wednesday, July 3, the Pokorski Motorsports team made its first of two scheduled MSA appearances during the 2019 season at the high-speed, wide-open Dodge County Fairgrounds “horsepower half mile” in Beaver Dam, Wis.

With 31 MSA competitors signed in for the evening, Pokorski lined up fifth in the fourth heat race. The 27-year veteran used a bold move in turn one of the opening lap to move past Nich Melis and Tyler Tischendorf into third place. Pokorski held on the rest of the way to secure a third-place finish and a starting spot in the 20-lap A main.

After starting ninth in the main event, the 2014 MSA Masters Series champion dropped back to 12th on lap 5 before a red flag for a four-car incident in turn two involving Kevin Karnitz, Danny Schlafer, Tim Haddy and Josh Walter slowed the pace.

Pokorski restarted eighth and found himself in 11th on lap 11 before engaging in a multi-lap duel with Al Schlafer beginning on lap 15. Pokorski eventually worked past Schlafer in turn three on lap 18 to secure 10th. He maintained the position over the final two laps to secure his sixth top-10 A-main showing of the 2019 season in a race won by Jim Melis.

“I was pretty disappointed with Dodge County,” Pokorski said. “I thought we’d be a little better. Overall, it was an okay night.”

The Pokorski Motorsports team travelled to the northwoods of Wisconsin to compete in the first of two scheduled 2019 MSA appearances at the tight, quarter-mile high-banked TNT Speedway in Three Lakes, Wis. on Saturday, July 6.

With 26 MSA cars on hand, Pokorski started second in the first heat race. Polesitter Bill Taylor got the jump on the green flag to lead the opening lap with Pokorski settling into second. On lap 8, Travis Arenz used the high groove to power around Pokorski, who wound up third at the checkered flag to advance to the A main.

Pokorski started on the outside of the front row in the 30-lap A main sponsored by Badger Steel. After some spirited jockeying at the front of the field in the opening laps, Pokorski was running sixth when a red flag was displayed on lap 13 for a multi-car incident in turn three involving Al Schlafer, Tyler Davis, Jack Vanderboom and Bill Taylor.

Following another multi-car incident on the ensuing restart attempt, Pokorski was involved in a four-car mishap in turn two on the third restart try after making contact with Tim Haddy and hitting the guardrail in turn two.The contact resulted in a broken axle, which forced Pokorski to drop out of the race with a 14th-place finish to his credit in a race won by Travis Arenz.

“TNT was going okay until we wrecked,” Pokorski said. “We lost some spots on the restart, but that was just a result of starting on the bottom and make a few bad choices during the first lap.”

Pokorski Motorsports will compete in an MSA doubleheader this weekend, which kicks off with an event on Friday, July 12 at Outagamie Speedway in Seymour, Wis. Grandstands open at 5 p.m. with racing at 6:30 p.m. The program will also feature IMCA Modifieds, Stock Cars, Sport Mods, Street Stocks and Sport Compacts.

“We wrecked a bunch of stuff at TNT on Saturday,” Pokorski said. “Thanks to my family, friends, Goeden's Auto Body R&H Racing and Behling Racing Equipment, I think we are going to get it all together in time for Friday night at Outagamie, unless we have unexpected problems.I'm really looking forward to returning to Outagamie Speedway this Friday night.”

Off the track, it was a tough week for Pokorski Motorsports as one of the team’s biggest supporters, Dave “Hagar” Nelson of Hagar’s Half-Pounder Cookies, passed away on Friday, July 5.

“It is with a heavy heart that we say, ‘goodbye,’ to our friend Dave ‘Hagar’ Nelson,” Pokorski said. “Hagar was a great supporter of local auto racing and bluegrass music/musicians. He often came to events with his famous half-pound cookies, a warm smile and a story. He will be missed.”

Masse Scores Sixth Consecutive Top-10 Finish to Start Season

Inside Line Promotions - BILLINGS, Mont. (July 9, 2019) - Cody Masse earned his sixth top-10 finish in as many races this season during an ASCS Frontier Region race at Big Sky Speedway last Saturday.

Masse began the evening by overcoming a poor heat race draw to qualify for the feature redraw.

"We started eighth in our heat race, but we were able to move up a few spots and finish fifth, which put us into the second half of the redraw for the feature," he said.

Masse pulled the No. 6 to line up for the evening's main event from the sixth starting position.

"We had an okay start and kind of settled into sixth early in the race," he said. "I was running the bottom and then got passed by Jeremy McCune on the outside so I decided to move up and try that out.

"The car was good up there and I was able to run some fast laps until it started to fade a bit on me and I got passed on the bottom by Damon McCune. That was a little frustrating since I love running the bottom, but I got passed there after moving to the top. It kind of seemed like I was in the wrong spot all the time.

"We went 25 laps non-stop so I didn't have a lot of time to think about what to do and adjust. I moved around a little more after that and the car kind of faded toward the end of the race. We had a right rear tire chunk out on us and lost some grip near the end."

Masse took the checkered flag in eighth place.

"It wasn't a super exciting result, but another solid top-10 finish for us," he said. "We're definitely happy about that. But we were a little disappointed not to be in the top five this week. I think that's where we should be running. But we finished 13th and 18th in our two races in Billings last year and second and eighth there this year so we've definitely improved. We're doing well. We just have some more work to do."

Masse is looking forward to his biggest racing event of the year this Friday and Saturday when Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont., hosts the Grizzly Nationals featuring the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

"We're really excited for the Grizzly Nationals," he said. "It's definitely the marquee event on our schedule. It's gained a lot of traction and has become one of the top races on the ASCS National Tour.

"We were fortunate to make the feature both nights there last year and our goal is to do the same this year. We'd really like to improve on our best ASCS National Tour finish, which was 17th in last year's race. There should be another good-size field of quality cars there so you have to be on your game every lap all weekend."

QUICK RESULTS -

July 6 - Big Sky Speedway in Billings, Mont. - Heat race: 5 (8); Feature: 8 (6).

Andy Gregg 10th at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Making his season debut during weekly action at Placerville Speedway on the 4th of July, Andy Gregg was pleased with how things went in what was essentially a shake down as he finished 10th in the feature.

“It felt great to be back at the track racing,” Andy Gregg said. “It was a great first night out in the 360ci and hopefully we can improve on that this weekend.”

With 28 cars checked in on Thursday, Gregg opened the night up by timing the GUTS/Capitol ACE Hardware/Crane Inspection Agency No. 16x machine in 16th fastest as he just made the heat race inversion.

From the front row of his heat race, Gregg would battle hard with youngster Cole Macedo and Kalib Henry as he needed a win to grab the transfer to the redraw.

Finishing second in his heat, Gregg would miss out on the redraw but still made his way to the 25-lap feature event where he took the green flag from the 16th starting position.

From deep in the field, Gregg did a great job of patiently working around the ¼ mile bullring with many of the competitors utilizing the low groove of the speedway. Picking off cars meticulously, Gregg would cap a great first night out in weekly competition with a 10th place finish.

“Grabbing a Top-10 is great, but we strive for Top-5’s and better,’ Andy Gregg said. “Still shaking some rust off, so hopefully I will be back up to full speed on Saturday. Thanks to all the guys who help me out, and all the great companies associated with our team.”

Andy would like to thank GUTS, Capitol ACE Hardware, Crane Inspection Agency, Ice House Resort, CTL Forest Management, Nail It Roofing, ARP Enterprises, Ervin Sales, Triple X, Wilwood, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, K&N, King Racing Products, BR Motorsports, Amerikote, Pony Express Service, Eagle Grit, and MF Inc. for their support in 2019.

ON TAP: Andy Gregg and the GUTS Racing team will be back at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

Wisconsin wingLESS presented by the IRA

A main action saw 4th starting Ryan Zielski quickly move into the lead. Zielski would lead 15 of the 20 lap feature in route to his first victory of the season. Derek Crane finished in the second spot while Allen Hafford brought his White #38 across in third. The top five was rounded out by Saturday night’s feature winner Jimmy Sivia and former champion Jordan Mattson.

34 Wisconsin wingLESS presented by the IRA teams took to the Angell Park Speedway as part of the annual Pepsi Nationals. A passing points format was used for the Sunday night show, so heat race action started the night.

Heat race number one saw Doug Schenck, returning to wingLESS competition after trying his hand in Knoxville, Iowa at the Corn Belt Nationals, drive from fourth to the lead. Picking up the win Schenk set himself up well in passing points. Rusty Egan and Shawn Swim followed Schenck across the line. Zach Hansen finished in the fourth position while ninth starting Greg Olsen finished in fifth.

Heat race number two was won by Zach Raidart behind the wheel of his 23z machine. Jake Kouba finished in second with Allen Hafford in thirrd. Tim cox brought the “Meyer Flyer” home in fourth while Randy Stanford crossed the line in fifth.

The third heat race was exciting as fourth and fifth starting Jimmy Sivia and Ryan Zielski moved past the field into first and second. The pair would pass under the checkered flag in that order. Former Champion Jordan Mattson brought his car home in third followed by the Klemko siblings, Chris in fourth and Natalie in fifth.

The final heat race saw the furthest back starting winner, as Craig Campton charged from sixth place to the victory over Johnny Fahl and Derek Crane. Paul Shaffer finished in fourth while Vince Bartolotta finished in fifth.

The B main was next up, and would set the final six positions of the feature. Chris Dodd drove his Hopf Farms backed 01 from eighth to the victory over Tim Cox. Dennis Spitz finished in the third spot. Jordan Paulsen, Natalie Klemko and Charles Spoonmore would all move on to the A main.

Kraig Kinser Partners With Blud Lubricants for Remainder of World of Outlaws Season

Inside Line Promotions - NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (July 9, 2019) - Kraig Kinser has added a new partner in Blud Lubricants, which produces 100 percent synthetic racing oils and lubricants that are designed and engineered to enhance the precision engineered vehicles that use the products.

"It's always exciting to have another partner with our team and we're looking forward to getting rolling with Blud Lubricants," Kinser said. "They offer great products that work well."

Blud Lubricants' signature products - Blud Racing Pro Series and Blud Racing Pro Elite Series - were created to bring out the highest level of performance and protection for all types of racing, including dirt track, sprint, road, off-road, desert, enduro, motocross, supercross, karting, drag, hi-speed boat and a host of others. For more information, visit https://www.bludlubricants.com/ .

"Blud Lubricants is very proud and excited to announce a partnership with Kraig Kinser and Kinser Racing for the World of Outlaws series," Blud Lubricants Founder Jeff Green said. "'The Greatest Show on Dirt' is one of the most rigorous and competitive series in racing so working with Kraig will showcase the exceptional quality of the Blud Racing oils."

Kinser competed in a trio of World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series events last week beginning Wednesday at Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, S.D., during the Star Spangled Showdown.

He qualified eighth quickest and advanced from third to second place in a heat race to earn a spot into the dash. A third-place run in the dash lined him up on the inside of the second row for the A Main.

"We got into the dash and that's what you want to do," he said. "That gave us a leg up for the A Main. It was a tricky track. I lost a couple of spots on restarts. Once we got going the car was good. All in all, it was a solid day."

Kinser finished with a seventh-place result, which was his 10th top 10 of the season.

He then ventured to Cedar Lake Speedway for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown. Kinser charged from 20th to 11th in Friday's main event, which was postponed to Saturday because of rain.

"Going forward and passing that many cars is positive," he said. "It was nice to get a good run in. It would have been a heavier and narrow track on Friday so we were fortunate it widened out on Saturday. We still had some issues getting ahold of the slick stuff, but the wider track probably helped us."

Unfortunately, a mechanical problem ended the Saturday night show early for Kinser, who was credited with a 23rd-place finish.

July 3 - Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, S.D. - Qualifying: 8; Heat race: 2 (3); Dash: 3 (2); Feature: 7 (3).

Giovanni Scelzi Caps Strong Week With Career-Best 410 Run at Knoxville

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 9, 2019) - Giovanni Scelzi scored a trio of top-10 finishes last week, including his career-best 410ci winged sprint car result at Knoxville Raceway.

The action began on Wednesday for Scelzi and car owner Bernie Stuebgen as the duo invaded Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio, for an NRA Sprint Invaders show. Scelzi qualified second quickest and placed fourth in a heat race before he rallied from 14th to seventh in the A Main.

"We were too tight all night," he said. "We hadn't run a 360 at a short track in a long time and the feature went green to checkered. We were better at the end and were able to make some passes."

The team ventured to Knoxville Raceway on Friday for the first night of a two-day event. Scelzi competed in a 360ci winged sprint car race, qualifying fourth quickest in his group and placing fifth in a heat race. That ranked him ninth in points and he lined up on the inside of the fifth row for the main event.

"It took me a while to get going," he said. "I had to start hitting my marks and running the bottom better. The last eight laps I probably passed seven or eight cars on the bottom."

Scelzi charged to a fifth-place finish.

He continued to improve on Saturday when he raced in the 410 sprint car division at the half-mile oval. Scelzi timed in sixth quickest and he maneuvered from fifth to second place in a heat race. That ranked him third in overall points. The feature was inverted by eight, lining him up on the outside of the third row.

"I feel like that's one of the best nights I've had at Knoxville," he said. "I was able to run the bottom better and more efficiently. A race that short you're not worried about tire wear or anything else. You can push as hard as you can. The race goes by so quick. It's hard to gain ground and so easy to lose it so you have to be good from the start."

Scelzi hustled to a career-best third-place result, which was his 10 th top five of the season.

He is scheduled to compete in his family owned No. 41s this Friday at Hartford Speedway in Hartford, Mich., during the Battle of Michigan and Saturday at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis., during the Badger 40 with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

QUICK RESULTS -

Mallett Claims First Victory of 2019 in ASCS Frontier Region Race in Montana

Inside Line Promotions - BILLINGS, Mont. (July 9, 2019) - Jordon Mallett used a weekend off from the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour to sharpen his driving skills as he picked up his first career ASCS sanctioned victory last Saturday at Big Sky Speedway during an ASCS Frontier Region event.

Mallett became the 33rd driver to win with the Montana-based regional tour.

After starting the night drawing the sixth starting position in a heat race, Mallett raced his way to the lead to claim the eight-lap heat race victory.

"The car was really good," he said. "Even in hot laps, I knew if we just let the track come to us we were going to have a good car. I just tried to be smart and let the car do the work and we showed muscle right away."

Mallett drew the third starting position for the feature event and quickly moved into second on the first circuit. Using the middle of the speedway, Mallett took the lead from Trever Kirkland on Lap 5 and opened up a sizeable advantage on fellow Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour regular Harli White, who followed into second.

"I knew pretty early that we had a car capable of winning the race and I just tried to bide my time and let the leader take us into traffic," Mallett said. "But I saw the third-place car show their nose and I figured it was time to go before I let the opportunity slip away and we were able to open up a pretty big lead."

Coming to the white flag, White passed Mallett for the lead before approaching a lapped car. Mallett took the low side of the track while White used the outside of the speedway.

In a drag race to the checkered flag, Mallett got to the finish line mere inches ahead of White for his first victory of the season. The race was his first visit to the speedway and should prove beneficial as the ASCS National Tour will visit Big Sky Speedway July 19-20 for a two-day show.

"Sometimes when you get too far ahead you are almost a sitting duck because you can get complacent," he said. "Right before the feature started they watered the top of the speedway and it started coming in late. I heard Harli coming and I kind of moved up and took her line.

"She got by me anyway, but I knew we were really good still. She went high around that lapped car and I drove it in on the bottom and I just did my best to hit my marks. I drove it as hard as I could and ultimately, we were just good enough to get the win."

Up next for the Arkansas native will be a return to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour action for the Grizzly Nationals at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont., this Friday and Saturday.

With the ASCS Frontier Region drivers joining the field for the weekend, Mallett is looking forward to using the experience gained against the locals to bring home a solid showing and make up some ground in the points. He currently sits ninth - only 54 points behind White - in the championship standings.

"I've never been to any of these places," Mallett said. "We decided to use this to put some notes in the notebook and luckily, we found success and have quite a few positives to take with us. Montana has been good to us so far so I'm looking forward to this swing and I like our chances against a great field of cars."

ROA WINS SANTA MARIA AND TAKES POINT LEAD – PERRIS THIS SATURDAY!

(Cypress, CA, July 8, 2019) Garden Grove, California’s Brody Roa took the lead on lap two and led the rest of the way to win the “Doug Fort Memorial” for the second year in a row last Saturday night at the Santa Maria Raceway. The victory propelled the veteran racer back into the lead in the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series point standings heading into this Saturday’s race at Perris Auto Speedway.

Roa began the night by setting fourth fast time in the 18-car field with a lap of 13.785 on the banked third of a mile clay oval. He began his 10-lap heat race in the fifth spot and drove it to a fourth-place finish. That finish placed him on the outside of the second row for the 30-lap main event.

Roa got a tremendous start at the drop of the green flag in the main and was up to second by the time the field screamed off turn two on lap one. He immediately began to stalk the leader. Coming off the fourth turn on the second lap, he shot to the inside and took the lead away.

Despite three early yellow flags and a late race red, Roa was never headed and at one point had nearly a full straightaway lead.

“This thing runs so good,” the happy winner told the crowd after his fourth victory of the year. “Shaver builds one heckuva’ an engine. I am starting to like this place. When we first started coming here a few years ago, I was not a fan of how sticky and rough it is. Now we have it figured out.”

“We have had, I would not say a bad stretch, but not our greatest the last month and a half,” Roa continued. “We were trying some stuff on the car. We went back to the shop this week and went back to what we had been doing and it worked out. We are headed back to Perris this week and then off to Indiana.”

In posting the win, Roa became the first USAC/CRA regular to pick up two victories in the series this year. It also allowed him to retake the point lead and he comes into this weekend’s event with a one-point advantage in the championship standings. Saturday’s race will be a co-sanctioned event with the USAC Southwest Sprint Cars. In a rare occurrence in racing, Roa will not only be the USAC/CRA point leader, but he will also be the leader in the Southwest Series where he has a 53-point cushion between himself and the second-place driver.

Fans who would like to see Roa in action this week can find Perris Auto Speedway at 18700 Lake Perris Drive in Perris (92571). The Spectator gates will open at 5:00 P.M. and the first race will take the green flag at 7:00. The track website is http://perrisautospeedway.com/ and the office phone number is (951) 949-0134.

Once the Perris race is over, Roa and his crew will head east to compete in nine races, on nine different tracks in 11 nights in Ohio and Indiana. The busiest part of the 2019 schedule will begin with a race at Ohio’s Eldora Speedway on July 17th. The following night, the team will kick off “Indiana Sprint Week” at the Gas City I-69 Speedway. Roa will discuss the trip on “The Racer Radio Show” this Sunday. The show airs from 3:00 – 4:00 P.M. and you can listen live online at https://theanswersandiego.com/. You can also listen on the radio at 1170 AM if you live in the San Diego area.

Starks Ties Career-Best 410 Result at Knoxville Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 9, 2019) - Trey Starks tied his career-best 410ci winged sprint car finish at Knoxville Raceway last Saturday when he earned a seventh-place result.

It was a strong finish to the weekend at the half-mile oval for the Gobrecht Motorsports driver.

"We're getting better and running more consistent the more we're able to race," he said. "Getting two nights in a row at Knoxville is great for our team, especially with how little we've been able to run this season because of the weather."

The two-day show began with 360ci winged sprint car competition on Friday. Starks set quick time during his group's qualifying session before he maneuvered from sixth to third place in a heat race. The feature inversion lined him up on the inside of the third row for the main event, which ended abruptly.

"Someone ran into me on the start and it shot me into another car," he said. "It was a shame because we had a great car and were in a great position to contend for a podium and possibly a win."

Starks was credited with a 19th-place run.

The team returned to Knoxville Raceway on Saturday for a 410 winged sprint car race. Starks qualified eighth quickest and placed fifth in a heat race. He lined up on the outside of the fifth row for the main event and gained a trio of positions to finish seventh, which ties his career-best effort he produced earlier this season.

"We turned some good laps and had some great battles on the track," he said. "In the end it was a positive to move forward and earn another top 10. We're making gains on our Knoxville program."

Starks ranks eighth in the Knoxville Raceway championship standings and he is the leading Rookie of the Year contender.

The team plans to race this Friday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., with the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series and Saturday at Knoxville Raceway.

QUICK RESULTS -

July 5 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa. - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 3 (6); Feature: 19 (5).

Dover Sweeps Midwest Sprint Touring Series Weekend in South Dakota

Inside Line Promotions - HARTFORD, S.D. (July 9, 2019) - Jack Dover doubled his season win count last weekend during a Midwest Sprint Touring Series doubleheader in South Dakota.

"It was a pretty good weekend," he said. "We had speed and we tried some setup stuff that seemed to work. With what we learned and the momentum we've got right now everything is great."

The weekend began on Friday at Wagner Speedway in Wagner, where Dover advanced from seventh to third place during a heat race. That earned enough points to make the feature redraw and Dover drew the No. 7 to line up seventh in the main event.

"Our redraws last weekend weren't too hot so we had to work for it," he said. "We freed the car up and I was able to get to the front about 15 laps in. We checked out, but there was a late restart. I got a good restart and took off."

Dover's win was his third in a row at Wagner Speedway dating back to July 2018. He also earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

Dover then made the trip to I-90 Speedway, where he hadn't competed since May 2013. Dover rallied from sixth to second place in a heat race and he began the feature on the inside of the fourth row for the second straight night after getting the No. 7 in the feature redraw.

"I was surprised how good the track was for not being raced on for three years and with all the weather they've had," he said. "It slicked off in the heat races. It only took rubber coming out of turn two in the feature. We hit the setup, which was the same as Friday night. We'll use that from now on until we find something better. I'd say we got the lead midway through the race and had a good restart on a green-white-checkered finish to earn the win."

Dover will venture to Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., this Friday for a show with the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series before he races on Saturday at Park Jefferson International Speedway in Jefferson, S.D., with the Carpet Land Nebraska 360 Sprints.

QUICK RESULTS -

July 5 - Wagner Speedway in Wagner, S.D. - Heat race: 3 (7); Feature: 1 (7).

Cannon McIntosh on the Podium at Angell Park – Five Races on Tap for this Week

Lonnie Wheatley, BIXBY, Okla. (July 9, 2019) – After a near triumph in Sunday night’s POWRi Pepsi Nationals at Sun Prairie, Wisconsin’s Angell Park Speedway, Cannon McIntosh and the Dave Mac Motorsports Toyota-TRD Spike No. 08 team are set for five nights of battle with the USAC and POWRi Midgets this week.

The week begins with a pair of NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget events at Meeker, Oklahoma’s Red Dirt Raceway on Tuesday night and then Kansas’ Concordia High Banks on Wednesday.

A pair of Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League events at Grain Valley, Missouri’s Valley Speedway follows on Friday and Saturday with a combined USAC vs. POWRi event wrapping up the week at Missouri’s Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex on Sunday.

“It’s going to be a busy week, we’re looking for some good finishes along the way and maybe we can get a win or two,” McIntosh commented.

After a Saturday night rainout at Illinois’ Fairbury American Legion Speedway, McIntosh made his first visit to Angell Park Speedway for Sunday night’s storied Pepsi Nationals.

McIntosh found the Wisconsin oval to his liking, racing from fourth to win his heat race and earn the pole position for the 30-lap feature event.

After slipping back in the early going, McIntosh raced his way back into second by the midway point and reeled in the race leader over the closing rounds. McIntosh made a last-lap move for the lead only to come up just short at the line and settling for second.

“We kind of struggled at the beginning, but once we got rolling we were good,” McIntosh explains. “I tried to make it happen right at the end, but just couldn’t quite make it happen.”

After being so close on Sunday night, McIntosh gets five more chances beginning on Tuesday night at Red Dirt Raceway.

Along with Toyota-TRD, other marketing partners making the 2019 Cannon McIntosh slate of events possible includes Sanders and Associates, Car and Fleet, Mobil 1, Speedway Engine Development, Best Graphics, Fieldhouse Gear, Precision Inspection, Panels by Smoke, Walker Performance, Sanders Wheels, American Discount Brake and Muffler, D&N Fabrication, Darling Ingredients, PJ’s and Hinds Family.

Bacon Sweeps Inaugural Corn Belt Nationals – Ready for Mid-America Midget Week

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (July 9, 2019) – Knoxville Raceway’s Inaugural Corn Belt Nationals proved to be lucrative for Brady Bacon and the Hoffman Racing / Mean Green No. 69 Sprint Car team.

After battling to victory lane in Friday night’s $5,000-to win preliminary feature, “The Macho Man” dominated throughout in Saturday night’s $20,000-to-win finale to etch his name into the record books as the Inaugural winner of the USAC Sprint Car event.

“I was like, ‘Doug, Doug, throw the white, let’s go. I’m done with this,” Bacon said referring to flagman Doug Clark. “I was having some trouble with those lapped cars, and the cushion was getting really treacherous. Lapped cars were biking in front of me and I was like, ‘man I don’t want someone else to collect me up in this.’ Obviously, you don’t know how good you are. The competition in USAC is so tough right now, I assumed someone was breathing down my neck.”

Bacon had no worries though, as his nearest rival was nearly a half lap back by the time Bacon finally saw that white flag and then the checkered flag.

There is little time to relish his fifth and sixth wins of the year, as Bacon turns his attention to USAC’s Mid-America Midget Week with events in Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Missouri beginning on Tuesday.

The week begins with “Tuesday Night Thunder” at Meeker, Oklahoma’s Red Dirt Raceway before moving on to Kansas’ Concordia High Banks for the Chad McDaniel Memorial on Wednesday. Action shifts to Fairbury, Nebraska’s Jefferson County Speedway for the Midwest Midget Championship on Friday and Saturday and then Missouri’s Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex on Sunday.

Bacon will wheel the Central Motorsports No. 85 for the opening four legs of Mid-America Midget Week before taking the wheel of the Hinck Motorsports No. 21h for the Sunday finale.

Bacon’s weekend sweep at Knoxville begin with some turmoil, as the team was forced to make a quick change of engines after qualifying.

Bacon responded by racing from fifth to win his heat race and ultimately took command in the feature past the halfway point and raced on to his 26th career USAC Sprint Car feature win.

“I think just having a lot of laps around here, more than the competition, has helped a little bit there to know that that middle could come in,” Bacon explained.

Entering Saturday’s tilt atop the event point charts, Bacon timed in sixth among his group and raced to a qualifying race win to earn the front row outside starting position for the 30-lap finale.

Bacon burst into the early lead and wasted little time checking out on the competition, working the top side of the ½-mile clay oval to perfection en route to the big payday and historic win.

Brady Bacon Racing is bolstered by the support of partners including Mean Green, Fatheadz Eyewear, Imperial Wagyu Beef, Gene Franckowiak, Drivewfx.com, Tel-Star Technologies, B&S Cattle, Lykins Oil, Elliott’s Custom Trailers, Triple X Race Co., Hoosier Tire, XYZ Machine, Factor4, Heath Clips Lawn Care, FK Indy, Engler Machine and Tool, Lucas Oil, FK Rod Ends, Keizer Wheels, Purple Heart Foundation, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Smiley’s Racing Products, DMI, Walker Filters, ProGlide Coatings, Chalk Stixx, Wilwood Engineering, Lajoie Seats, Smith Precision Products, Allstar Performance, Simpson Racing Products, Driver Websites, Schroth Racing, Saldana Racing Products, KSE Racing Products, King Racing Products, Schoenfeld Headers.

Tony Gualda 5th at Stockton Dirt Track With Sprint Car Challenge Tour

PETERSEN MEDIA- Saturday night in Stockton, CA, Tony Gualda and the C&M Motorsports team bounced back from a tough July 4th and pocketed a fifth palce finish with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

“Have to thank Cody and Mandi for working so hard to get another car put back together after our incident at Placerville Speedway on Thursday,’ Tony Gualda said. “We had really good speed all night long, and I got hung out on restart and lost a couple spots, and we ended up finishing fifth.”

After a scary incident on Thursday night saw Gualda make hard contact with the Placerville Speedway fence, the team was back up and running on Saturday night in Stockton, CA.

Timing in third fastest in his group, Gualda would lay down some great laps in his heat race as he picked up the win aboard the Moorefield Construction, Inc./Hollister Auto Parts/Dassel’s Petroleum backed No. 7C.

Earning a berth in the Dash based on his heat race performance, Gualda would go from fourth to third in the four lap shootout, putting him in the second row for the 30-lap Sprint Car Challenge Tour feature event.

Jumping into second as the race came to life, and early red on the second lap would put the field in double file formation as Gualda now started alongside Shane Golobic.

When the green lights flashed back on, Gualda would get caught up in the crumbs and would lose a position to Tim Kaeding as he slipped back to third.

When the race ripping off 24 laps non stop, Gualda would work the low side of the speedway as he chased after Kaeding and Golobic. As the laps clicked off, Gualda would fight an ailing nose wing, and it would make maneuvering a little more difficult on the high horse power facility.

Slipping back to fifth, Gualda would cap his weekend off with a fifth place finish.

“It was another solid night for our race team, and I have to thank Cody, Mandi, MF, and everyone that helps us out and supports us,” Gualda said. “It was a trying week, but these guys stick with it, and it really shows.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Moorefield Construction, Inc., Hollister Auto Parts, Dassel’s Petroleum, PT Shocks, Swartz Diesel, Alturas Tires, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

ON TAP: Gualda and C&M Motorsports are geared up for a return to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-17, Wins-1, Top 5’s-7, Top 10’s-14.

STAY CONNECTED: Keep up with Tony Gualda on Twitter by following along @TonyGualda99.

 

Zearfoss completes holiday stretch that includes pair of All Star top-ten finishes

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (July 8, 2019) – Brock Zearfoss’ recent stretch of competition not only included action with the All Star Circuit of Champions, which he competes with full-time, but also the Pennsylvania Posse, mixing-in Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek appearances with All Star starts throughout the last ten days.

Despite the hectic travel schedule with very little downtime, Zearfoss made the most of the experience, ending his recent stretch with four top-ten appearances; two against the All Star Circuit of Champions and two against the Pennsylvania Posse.

Zearfoss, driver of the Premier Motorsports/Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill/Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc./BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Meckley’s Limestone Products/Berkebile Oil Company/River City Wood Products/No. 70 sprint car, highlighted all starts with a runner-up performance during Sharon Speedway’s annual Lou Blaney Memorial on Saturday, July 6. The ‘Jonestown Jet’ kicked-off his evening at Sharon Speedway with a heat race victory.

As mentioned, the All Star Circuit of Champions result at Sharon Speedway was one of two top-ten finishes during the last two weekends with Zearfoss’ first occurring at the Dirt Oval at Route 66 in Joliet, Ill., on Saturday, June 29; a sixth place finish after starting fifth on the grid.

Although troubled with periods of bad luck, Zearfoss highlighted all Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek starts with a fourth place performance at Selinsgrove Speedway on Sunday, June 30, also scoring a sixth place outcome during Speedweek’s first visit to the Port Royal Speedway ‘Speed Palace’ on Wednesday, July 3. Impressive enough, Zearfoss was forced to rally from 12th to earn his top-five at Selinsgrove.

“What a week. It may take us a few extra days to recover from all of this, but this is what we live for. We enjoy every minute of it,” Brock Zearfoss explained, who is currently fifth in the All Star Circuit of Champions driver standings. “I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work over the last two weeks. What we did certainly wasn’t easy. Luckily for us, we had the chance to work out of our own shop a few days while traveling through Central PA. We are ready to get back on the All Star trail this weekend.”

Up next on the agenda, Brock Zearfoss and Premier Motorsports will hit the road and head for New York, ready to rejoin the All Star Circuit of Champions for three days of action on Thursday through Sunday, July 12-14.

Impressive enough, each of Marks’ top-five outcomes were the product of improvement, first rallying from ninth to finish fourth at Brown County, capped with a head-turning hard charge from 16th to finish fourth during Cedar Lake Speedway’s Friday night program that was eventually contested on Saturday [postponed one day due to Mother Nature]. In fact, Marks was in the hunt for a victory at Brown County, flirting with the top-three before a series of cautions halted his forward momentum.

Although unable to match his top-five performance during Cedar Lake’s finale, Marks still managed to impress all of those in attendance by ending his evening with another Hard Charger Award, this time rallying from 19th on the grid to finish 13th.

“That was a lot of fun. I’m proud of my team and what we were able to accomplish. We have the speed that it takes to win races. We have a lot of great people who back our efforts, so I’m thrilled things are starting to come together for everyone,” Brent Marks explained, driver of the Brent Marks Racing/M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Eagle Hotel/No. 19 sprint car. “This kind of momentum is very important, especially with so many big events coming up quick on the schedule. I’m excited.”

Brent Marks and Brent Marks Racing will continue their 2019 campaign with a pair of programs in Michigan and Wisconsin, first visiting Hartford Speedway in Hartford, Michigan, on Friday, July 12. The weekend will conclude the following evening with a Saturday night stop at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin.

Marks is certainly no stranger to action at Wilmot Raceway, as the third-year Outlaw is the defending World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series winner at the southern Wisconsin venue.

Upper Midwest Sprintcar Series   July 5 and 6, 2019, New Richmond, WI


Dating back to the Rene Hughes Memorial at Hibbing Raceway in late June, Harry Hanson has
been untouchable. The long time Late Model pilot has been enjoying his “retirement”, fielding
both a winged and Traditional sprint car with the PIRTEK Upper Midwest Sprintcar Series
(UMSS) the last few summers. After claiming two wins with the UMSS in 2018, to go with a
handful of wins with the Northern Renegades, a sibling series to the UMSS Traditional wingless
class, Hanson has yet to visit Rock Auto victory lane in 2019 sans the wing. But since June 22,
Hanson’s winged program has heated up with the weather.
On Friday night, July 5, the UMSS winged warriors were part of the annual visit by the NOS
Energy Drink World of Outlaws to the famed Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond,
Wisconsin. After the heat race wins went to Kevin Lear and Rick Kobs on the opening night of
the two day event, Mother Nature intervened to postpone both the Outlaw and UMSS winged
finales, leaving both programs to run double features the following evening.
Saturday’s program kicked off with the Friday night make-up UMSS feature, with Jack Berger
and Kevin Lear pacing the field to green. The top six starters were all strong early on, with
Hanson, Rick Kobs, Gunner Cummings and Carter Chevalier all applying pressure to the front
row starters. At the end of the 15 lapper it was Hanson claiming his third consecutive feature
win, and second in as many weeks at Cedar Lake. Chasing Hanson to checkers were Cummings,
Kobs, Berger and Chevalier.
In the Saturday portion of the program, Hanson picked up right where he left off, winning the
PIRTEK heat race. Youth was served in the remain two heats, with the Rock Auto qualifier going
to the 16-year old Jack Berger while the Hoosier Tire heat race went to 17-year old Carter
Chevalier.
In the 20-lap nightcap, Chevalier established his #15c at the point early with both Hanson and
Kobs applying pressure. Kobs was the first to sneak by Chevalier and Hanson was close behind.
After a mid-race restart, Hanson managed to get the jump on Kobs and slowly stretched his
lead the rest of the way, collecting his fourth sticker of the season. Kobs settled for second, and
two-time and defending Traditional champion, Cam Schafer ended his 2019 winged debut on
the podium as well. Jack Berger and Denny Stordahl rounded out the top five.
The PIRTEK UMSS is back in action on Friday night, July 19, with both the Winged and
Traditional classes taking to the 1/3 mile Red Cedar Speedway in Menomonie, Wisconsin. More
information about the series is always available at www.umsprints.com as well as the series’

Saturday night at the Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, IN. Mark the

watching motor racing at the Fair. The BRANDEIS MSCS Sprint Cars
will be competing in a feature that pays $3,000 to win and $300 to
start. Also racing on the program will be the Pro Late Models and
the Modifieds. There is something for everyone!
Then Saturday at Haubstadt, Tri-State Speedway will be presenting the
annual SPRINT STAMPEDE. This year the program will include the IMCA

cars in the feature plus one eligible provisional driver.
MSCS last raced at Terre Haute on August 12th of 2018. Thirty cars
were present. Chris Windom set fast time at 20.071 seconds around
the half mile. Robert Ballou finished ahead of Windom to win the
feature. MSCS will also race at Terre Haute a second time this year.
That event will be on Sunday August 11th.
At the 2018 sixth annual SPRINT STAMPEDE at Haubstadt, C.J. Leary was
the MSCS feature winner. This season MSCS has completed 8 races.
Kyle Cummins has won 5 feature events including a stretch of 3
victories in a row. Eight different drivers have posted runner-up

Hayhurst, and Kent Schmidt. Chayse Hayhurst leads Kyle Hathaway and

Cummins had already secured another championship. He had established
a lead of 65 points over Brady Short. The $1,500 award will be

Placerville Speedway hosts the 16th annual Tribute to Al Hinds this Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – July 9, 2019…A busy month of July continues at the Placerville Speedway this Saturday night with the El Dorado County Fairgrounds quarter-mile playing host to the 16th annual Tribute to Al Hinds.

On the card this Saturday July 13th are the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Cars, Ltd. Late Models, the Jay’s Mobile Welding & Fabricating Pure Stocks and the visiting Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association. Live music will be performed from 4pm-6pm in the grandstand midway by the band Mixup, while Coors Light Happy Hour will also occur at that same time.

Al Hinds was the second promoter of Placerville Speedway. He took operation of the track with business partner Richard Hirst from its founder, Bruno Romani, in 1968, three years after it first opened when the facility was built around an existing community football field.

Longtime track Announcer and Publicist Bill Sullivan, who is now the Associate Publisher of Gold Country Media said of Al Hinds,

“I knew Al Hinds growing up, he was a good friend of my Dad’s, they both were local businessmen too. Later in life when I started working for the newspaper and then the speedway I really learned all the great things Al did for the sport back in the day and all the way up to his passing, he was always the first one to the track and the first one to give you advice, if you were a driver, a race promoter or a young announcer who thought you knew it all. He enjoyed sharing jokes but most of all he enjoyed sharing his knowledge of the sport and even though times and technology had changed, Al was just about always correct when it came to topics in the sport.”

The operator of a local machine shop by trade, Hinds loved the community where he lived. In his final years of life, he enjoyed sitting with some of his best friends every night in the grandstands at Placerville Speedway and loved watching young talent make a name for themselves in the sport.

Sullivan continued, “When I learned of Al’s passing, it was a pretty sad day for many of us. It made perfect sense that we had to do something in the man’s honor. I remember making a phone call to Mike Dent who worked at a local auto dealership, Mike connected us with his boss Tony Montalbano who agreed to fund the event with bonus money and then boom, a special race was born and here we are 16 years later.”

This Saturday Sullivan will attend the event to help honor Hinds, as he also gets ready to make a return on the mic for the August 10th “Legends Night” event. “There’s always something special about this race at Placerville, Al touched so many lives with his wisdom and contagious smile and sense of humor so it’s always rewarding to remember him. My trips back to Placerville have been far and few over the last few years due to my career that has long hours and travel. But I’m looking forward to coming back this Saturday night to the house that Al built.”

Auburn’s Andy Forsberg continues to lead the way in his bid for a seventh Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Car title. “Mr. Excitement” has claimed a trio of victories and used a runner up finish last Thursday to give himself a 36-point cushion back to second place Kalib Henry, who continues to search for that first career Placerville Speedway victory. Veteran Bobby McMahan has returned to the track this season and finds himself third in the standings, with Hollister’s Tony Gualda and 16-year-old Jodie Robinson round out the top-five.

On the Ltd. Late Model side of things Ray Trimble sits out front by 21-markers over Tyler Lightfoot. Trimble has gathered three wins this season and will be gunning to add a fourth on Saturday at the Tribute to Al Hinds. Dan Brown Jr., Fourth of July winner Jay Norton and Ryan McDaniel complete the top-five. This Saturday the Ltd. Late Models will also be racing for extra money with the feature awarding $600-to-win, while second place will pay $325 and third will receive $225.

With the Jay’s Mobile Welding & Fabricating Pure Stocks it’s former track champion Nick Baldwin who leads the way, now with a 33-point lead over Kevin Jinkerson. The Pure Stocks will have three straight Saturday’s of competition, making it a crucial stretch in the battle for the championship. Jason Palmer, Mel Byers and Scott Grunert sit third through fifth respectively.

The popular Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association will make their second Placerville Speedway visit of the year on Saturday. During their first appearance it was the ultra-talented Ryan Winter who picked up the victory over Ben Wiesz, Mike Grenert, Josh Wiesz and Kevin Bender. The colorful coupes always get around the red clay in solid fashion and bring great car counts each time.

Adult tickets this Saturday will cost $15, while seniors 62 plus, military and juniors 12-17 will be $13, children 6-11 are $6, kids five and under are free! Tickets can also be purchased online by clicking https://www.universe.com/events/2019-placerville-speedway-championship-pts-race-10-al-hinds-tribute-tickets-placerville-Q3X9WF

A happy hour is offered from 4pm-6pm in the grandstands featuring discounted Coors Light and Coors Original at the beer stand. Drivers meeting will be held at 4:30pm, with cars on track for wheel packing at 5. Hot laps, ADCO Driveline & Custom Exhaust qualifying and racing will follow.

Shawn Jones Dominant at Stockton Dirt Track En Route to First Win of Season

(PETERSEN MEDIA-Stockton, CA)- Shawn Jones looked very strong on Saturday night in Stockton, CA as he picked up the lead early and went on to win his first feature of the year in dominating fashion.

Saturday night at Stockton Dirt Track, 16 Hunt Series cars checked into the pit area for the series’ third event of the season. Running second during the first two outings, Jones came out strong on this night as he would pick up quick time honors and really set the tone to his night.

After preliminary action was complete it was Scott Chapeta, and Josh Young leading the field to green, with Chapeta getting the early jump.

On the fifth lap, Jones was able to make his move by Chapeta as third running Jake Morgan did as well to take over second and set up a Jones vs Morgan showdown for the third consecutive race.

Jones would have none of it however as he simply threw his keys on the counter and checked out. Jones would walk away from the field as he had a potent machine underneath him and went on to win by a very comfortable margin.

Jake Morgan would hand on for second as Cody Fendley and Terry Schank, Jr rounded out the Top-Five. Boy Moniz rebounded from early issues to finish sixth as Troy Degaton, Chapeta, Cody Spencer, and Tim Sherman, Jr completed the Top-10.

Two heat races were ran Saturday night with wins going to Chapeta and Josh Young.

Miller Family Motorsports

[PLYMOUTH, WIS.] July 8, 2019-The Miller Family Motorsports teams headed North this past weekend. They made their first stop at the Outagamie Fairgrounds in Seymour, WI to run several exhibition laps to promote the upcoming race there this coming Friday night. Both drivers enjoyed interacting with the fans and were pleased to get some beneficial notes for this coming Friday nights' race.

The teams loaded up and headed north for Saturday nights' racing action held at TNT Speedway in Three Lakes, WI. Both drivers rolled-into the speedway and were among the other 24 drivers signed in for the nights MSA Badger 30 action! Justin and Adam did their pill draw and it proved once again that they certainly have poor luck when it comes to drawing! Justin's pill draw would place him starting 8th in heat one and Adams' pill draw would have him starting 7th in heat two. After countless laps of packing the track and finishing their hot lap sessions, the brothers made quick changes to their sprinters and were set to head back out for heat race action.

Justin would start the night off in heat one and several laps into the race, he would make early contact with another 360 sprinter luckily there was not any damage. After the restart, Justin quickly made moves to work himself up to finish 6th. The #15M captured a transfer spot into the nights' A-main event where the team would start 13th.

Adam rolled out for his heat race and he battled each lap to finish 6th and that earned him a pole position starting spot for the nights' B-main event! Adam had to make quick changes with tires, gears and shocks and return back to staging for the night's B-main event. As the green flagged waved over the speedway, Adam jumped out to the early lead and never looked back! He captured the WIN and would start 17th in the A-main.

Adam and Justin conversed after Adam's dominating performance in the B-main and both brothers were once again headed track-side. As the field took the green flag for the Badger 30, the start of red and yellow flags would swallow up numerous laps of action. One of the cautions that occurred, Adam spun to avoid being collected in the mishap and was able to restart in his current running position of 13th. He worked and worked the highline after his re-start and his hard-work successfully paid off as he would finish 9th!

Justin was able to miss all of the mishaps on the track and would use each of those re-start to his advantage and pick off several cars on those restarts. With 10 laps to go the Maxim Chassis set-up came in and Justin rocketed up to the 4th position and that is where he would finish! The brothers once again captured TOP TEN FINISHES!

Hoping to continue to build off their momentum, the brothers are gearing up for this weeks two-night racing action! Friday evening the MSA will be at the Outagamie Fairgrounds in Seymour, WI and on Saturday they will be back in action at the Plymouth Dirt Track!

Top-10 at CEDAR LAKE: Stewart & CJB Finishes 6th During July 4th Stretch Hartford Speedway & Wilmot Raceway on the docket for 'Greatest Show on Dirt'

CARLISLE, PA. - July 9, 2019 - CJB Motorsports added a 6th place finish during a three race swing throughout South Dakota and Wisconsin.

CJB and driver Shane Stewart headed to Brown County Speedway near Aberdeen, South Dakota on Wednesday, July 3rd. In the event, the team timed in 17th, finished 6th in his heat race and 13th in the feature.

After a break for the 4th of July, the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series returned to action on Friday, July 5th at Cedar Lake Speedway near New Richmond, Wis. Stewart timed in 2nd overall, won his heat race and finished 4th in the dash. Three separate rain delays forced series and track officials to delay the feature until the following day which created a double header for the teams and fans. For Friday's feature, Stewart started 4th and finished 6th.

For Saturday's event, Stewart timed in 15th, finished 4th in the heat race and charged from 15th to 11th in the feature.

"Brown County was a struggle for us but I think it helped us learn some things for Cedar Lake," said Stewart, pilot of the #5 Killer Instinct Crossbows , Weikert's Livestock, Ecynbro Trucking, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn & Landscape machine. "We qualified good at Cedar Lake. Was running good in the feature and the rain stopped our efforts. On Saturday, we went out to qualify and the track was completely gone. Made for a long night for my guys. Salvaged an 11th place finish. The driver made a few errors, which kept us off of the podium for Friday and Saturday night's race."

A two race swing in Michigan & Wisconsin keeps the CJB team trucking throughout July with stops at Hartford Speedway and Wilmot Raceway on Friday, July 12th and Saturday July 13th, respectively. CJB swept this weekend when it was run in 2017.

"Hartford was a little different last time we were there because they shortened the track so it isn't the big half mile it used to be," Stewart said. "Looking forward to getting back there. The race two years ago was a good one. Wilmot is a place both the team and I have had success at. It's a home town track for Jenn's (Shane's wife) family so we want to have a good run for sure!"

Kyle Hirst Seventh at Stockton Dirt Track as THE Heads to Northwest Speedweek

PETERSEN MEDIA: In an extremely tight battle for the Sprint Car Challenge Tour championship, Kyle Hirst and the Tiner Hirst Enterprise team did what they could during Saturday night’s feature event as Hirst battled a brake issue en route to a seventh place finish.

“We had a really good car all night long at Stockton, but for some reason we keep battling a brake issue and it got us again,” Kyle Hirst said. “The nice thing is we are heading to the Northwest this week so we will get quite a few nights to see if we can’t fine tune.”

Timing the THE/Larry Davis Farms/GP Development backed No. 94 entry in second quickest in his qualifying group, the Paradise, CA driver picked up a third place finish during heat race competition.

Missing out on the Dash, Hirst moved into the 30-lap feature event where he rolled off of the starting grid from the sixth starting position. On a freshly groomed surface, Hirst would take a liking to the bottom side of the speedway as he battled hard for a podium position.

As the race moved on, Hirst and the rest of the field would see the top groove was pretty good to as Cole Macedo was making it work and getting by them. Moving upstairs, issue would see Hirst get off the racing surface and lose several positions.

Dealing with brake issues the last portion of the race, Hirst would hang on to cap his night with a seventh place finish.

“We had a little adventure there late and I think I ran a lap on the horse track,” Hirst said with a smile. “Still, good night of racing, and looking forward to this week ahead.”

Madsen Records Top-10’s at Brown County and Cedar Lake

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting in three races over the last week to celebrate Independence Day, Ian Madsen would pick up Top-10 finishes at Brown County and Cedar Lake.

“It was another decent weekend for our team,’ Ian Madsen said. “Wednesday night we were okay at Brown County and finished 10th, and then Saturday at Cedar Lake we had a great run going in the make up feature until a cut tire sent us into the wall. The guys thrashed to get back up car ready for the regular program and we were able to finish seventh.”

Wednesday night Madsen would have to dig out of an early hole after timing in 13th fastest in time trials.

A nice run in his heat race saw the St. Marys, NSW driver advance to finish third after starting fifth, which put him in the seventh starting position for the 35-lap feature event.

Running between sixth and eighth during the feature event, Madsen would fight hard and it would lead him to a near spin as he continued to push the envelope. Able to get his machine pointed back the right direction, Madsen would lose a few positions as he slipped back to finish 10th.

Friday night Cedar Lake Speedway was the venue for the first of two nights of action and Madsen got underway by timing in 16th. Pocketing a fifth place finish in his heat race, Madsen would put the Logan Contractors Supply, Inc./Aspen Aire/Royal Flooring backed No. 18 in the seventh row for the feature event.

With weather moving into the area, officials and teams did all they could to get the show ran before rain came. Running 12th on the seventh lap, rain would get the best of the race and it would be postponed to the following afternoon.

Restarting from 12th with 28 laps still to be ran, Madsen would do a great job of racing his way forward as he got up into fourth late in the race. Madsen’s run would be all for not as a cut left rear sent him into the wall destroying his car and ending his feature.

With the program moving right into Saturday night qualifying, Madsen and company thrashed to get spare car ready and they did it just in time as Madsen made it out for time trials and timed in seventh.

Finishing third in his heat, Madsen would take the green flag from the seventh starting position and worked into fifth as the rubber went down. Hanging on to the position, Madsen would close an eventful day with a fifth place finish.

“Despite all the adversity we went through Saturday, we still were able to stay focused and have a really good run,” Madsen added. “Thanks to everyone who helped out, and to those who continue to support our team.”

Ian and his KCP Racing team would like to thank Logan Contractors Supply Inc., Aspen Aire, Royal Flooring, Bobcat, Kline Electric, Ted’s Body Shop, Team Excavating, Greenland Homes, American Express, TammyHeckart.com, Quality Traffic Control, BergenKDV, P1 Race Wear, and BK Racing Titanium for their support this season.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-38, Wins-1, Top-5’s- 8, Top 10’s-18

Forsberg Finds Redemption at Placerville Speedway with Second Place Finish

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting upside down on the opening lap of the Sprint Car Challenge Tour feature event at Placerville Speedway one week ago, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing came back strong on the 4th of July and picked up a second place finish.

“We have torn some stuff up the last few weeks and my guys did a great job of getting another car together,” Forsberg said. “We are down to a car that I am not too fond of, but we had a decent night on Thursday and we will build on it.”

With 26 cars checked in for the Holiday race, Forsberg would time the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 entry in second fastest in qualifications.

Lining up in the second row for his heat race, Forsberg would take care of business as his third place finish would be enough to move into the nightly redraw.

Not having the best luck in the draw on this night, Forsberg would find himself with the eighth pill, meaning he would take the green flag for the 25-lap affair from the fourth row.

Using a strong start to the feature event, Forsberg would make a couple of nice moves as he jumped up into the third position as chased after the lead duo of Shane Golobic and Tony Gualda.

Taking over the second position just after the halfway point, Forsberg would turn his attention to Shane Golobic, but the race leader was just too good on this night.

With Golobic committed to the bottom, Forsberg would just to make the top work but couldn’t get close enough to try anything. When Ron Stahl waived the checkered flag, Forsberg capped another strong night at the speedway with a second place finish.

“Congrats to the 17 team, they were just a step ahead of us all night,’ Forsberg said. “Again, want to thank everyone that works on this car and supports us. It has been tough at times but we don’t seem to miss a beat.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Geico Local Office, PitStopUSA, Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, FVP, and CRV Carbon Solutions for their support in 2019.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg will be at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-17, Wins-4, Top 5’s-9, Top 10’s-11.

Cox Fights Through July 4th Adversity and Runs 5th at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Snapping a rear axle while warming up for his heat race on Thursday night, Justyn Cox and his Cox Family Racing team thrashed to keep their night going and it worked out as Cox scored a fifth place finish.

“Man, I can’t thank everyone who helped us get the rear end swapped out,” Cox said. “We didn’t have a whole lot of time since we were in a late heat, but we made the switch and had a pretty good run.”

Timing the MDW/Five Window Beer Company/Cranked Naturals backed No. 31c machine in seventh quickest in time trials, a snapped axle while warming up for his heat race would put Cox in the ‘B’.

Powering to the ‘B’ Main win, Cox would get his qualifying time back in the feature event as he took the green flag from the 11th starting position. On a slick Placerville Speedway that saw the bottom groove really dominate the night, Cox was able to slice and dice his way forward as he worked through the Top-10.

Continuing to battle his way forward, Cox would cap a hard fought 4th of July off with a fifth place finish.

“We got lucky that it broke where it did and didn’t lead to a bigger wreck,” Cox said. “Again, thanks to everyone who came over and got their hands dirty and helped us out. Had a blast, and am looking forward to Speedweek this week.”

The Cox Racing team would like to thank Michael David Winery, Five Window Beer Company, MDW Sports, Cranked Naturals, PM Truck Repair, Justice Brothers, K&N, LRB, Konnected, A.R.T., Sacramento Theatrical Lighting, College Cyclery, Arai, Racing Optics, All American Powder Coating, VSR, Coos Bay Speedway, Swimming Pool Perfections, Tim’s Hot Rod Shop, Shell Shock, Moyle Race Engines, and Manzer Motorsports for their support in 2019!

Carrick 4th at Angell Park Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting washed out on Saturday night at FALS, Tanner Carrick and the Keith Kunz Motorsports team were able to get Sunday’s Pepsi Nationals at Angell Park Speedway in where Carrick picked up a fourth place finish.

“We had a really fast racecar, but it was just one of those nights where passing was extremely tough,” Carrick said.

Running with the Lucas Oil POWRi Midget Series, Carrick would draw himself a front row starting position for heat race action, before finishing second and finding himself in the fourth row to start the 30-lap feature event.

After some pre race track preps, Carrick was patient as he waited for the surface to widen out so he could get going forward. With it tough to pass on during much of the feature, Carrick would showcase a very strong machine under him and was methodical in his moves.

Climbing into fourth, Carrick would pressure his KKM teammate Tucker Klassmeyer for the final spot on the podium in the race’s waning laps. Trying everything he could to get by Klassmeyer, Carrick would come up shot as he capped his Pepsi Nationals with a fourth place finish as he continues to get into a groove with his Craftsman/CVC/TRD team.

“I think we were a little faster than some of those guys at the end of the race it was just too tough to pass,” Carrick added. “Thanks to everyone on the KKM team that works so hard to give us great cars. We have a busy couple of days coming up and I could not be more excited.”

Tanner Carrick and the Keith Kunz Motorsports team would like to thank Craftsman, CVC, TRD, Spike Chassis, Cemex, Arai, and Shell Shock for their support.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS- Starts-24, Wins-0, Top 5’s-3, Top 10’s-11

Brian Brown Excited for Event at Knoxville Raceway Following Trip to Wisconsin

Inside Line Promotions - NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (July 8, 2019) - Brian Brown is heading to his home track this Saturday after a frustrating outing last weekend during the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown.

Brown ran into trouble in both of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series main events after hustling toward the top 10.

July 5 - Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis. - Qualifying: 14; Heat race: 6 (5); Feature: 21 (17).

"We drew a really, really good number (for qualifying), but couldn't capitalize on it," Brown said. "We were just off and that got us behind a bit. We started 17th (in the main event) and were up battling for seventh, eighth, ninth. We developed an oil leak so we didn't get to finish that one."

July 6 - Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis. - Qualifying: 17; Heat race: 6 (6); Feature: 15 (17).

"The track slowed down quite a bit," Brown said. "We qualified bad again. With these guys you can't give up that much ground that early in the night. In the feature we were running 12th on the last lap and blew a right rear tire. We had better cars than we did finishes, but sometimes it goes like that.

"Even though we didn't have the results we wanted it wasn't a lost cause. When we can bring in upwards of 250 FVP customers and employees and thank them, that's an important part to be able to do these events. We couldn't do the hospitality without the World of Outlaws. It's a great partnership between us, the Outlaws and FVP."

UP NEXT - Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa

"Just because you ran good there last time doesn't mean you'll knock it out of the park again," Brown said. "Hopefully we can pick back up where we left off. This weekend they have the feature with the normal weekly show and then the make-up feature from the rainout a couple of weeks ago. We start on the front row."

Taylor Scores Pair of Top 10s During Midget Round Up

Inside Line Promotions - GARDEN CITY, Kan. (July 8, 2019) - Zac Taylor recorded a pair of top-10 finishes with the POWRi Lucas Oil Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association and it happened in just one day.

The 4th annual Midget Round Up at Airport Raceway was rained out Friday, compressing the two-day show into a one-day affair on Saturday with two complete programs.

During the first show, Taylor started and finished fifth in his heat race, which relegated him into the B Main.

"We got to second, which put us in the show, but we had to start 18 th," he said. "Todd (Henry) had the car so good. I was able to move around and ended up ninth. We cleaned the nozzles and got the car ready for the second show, but it wouldn't fire for hot laps. Todd put a new ignition in and it finally fired. We think because it was so hot it just kind of vapor locked. We didn't really have time to do a lot of adjustments on the car and we finished sixth in the heat."

A fourth-place finish in the B Main put Taylor on the tail for the feature.

"I ran second for most of the B Main, but a couple of guys that tangled early were able to come back and found the high line and got around me late," he said.

Taylor was able to avoid a couple of crashes early in the A Main.

"That helped move us up a little, but I just started picking off cars," he said. "As the night came in the cooler air brought the moisture back in the track and we got a little too tight toward the end and ended up fourth. I was waiting for the third-place car to make a mistake, but the few he made I was too far behind to capitalize. I probably should have moved up on the track, but I didn't know how far back fifth was and I didn't want to lose a spot.

"It still was a pretty good day. We passed a lot of cars and it was a good point night. Todd continues to give me a great race car."

Taylor, who capped the night with the charge from 20th to fourth, sits second in the RMMRA championship standings.

He will compete this Friday and Saturday during the Grizzly Nationals at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont., with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour in his family owned 360ci sprint car.

"I'm excited to see how we can do against the ASCS national teams," he said. "My dad has had our car really hooked up."

Wilson Captures All Star Hard Charger Award at Lernerville and Sharon

Inside Line Promotions - HARTFORD, Ohio (July 8, 2019) - Greg Wilson passed a lot of cars last weekend during an Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions doubleheader.

Wilson and his Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Off Road sponsored team charged from 20th to third place on Friday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., and from 20th to ninth place on Saturday at Sharon Speedway to earn the Hard Charger Award each night.

"We changed some stuff around and put a J&J chassis together to try a different frame," he said. "The good part is some of the things we're struggling with were similar to what we already had. Later in the night some of the things we did made us automatically better."

Wilson timed in fifth quickest in his group on Friday to open the competition at Lernerville Speedway. A fifth-place result in a heat race lined him up on the outside of the 10th row for the main event.

"Friday was a whole different feel and we got real good in the feature," he said. "The cool part about it was early in the race I could float through the middle and around the top. I floated by probably six or eight cars at the beginning of the race just rolling the middle. As the race went on we really got good on the bottom. When they were slipping and sliding we were patient and hitting our marks."

Wilson's third-place finish was his season best with the All Stars.

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Sharon Speedway during the Lou Blaney Memorial.

"We were real good in hot laps," he said. "I think we were second quickest overall. I didn't get to go up and watch the track. I needed to change my line and not making excuses, but I didn't get to. Then you're battling all night."

Wilson timed in fifth quickest in his group for the second straight night. A fifth-place finish in the heat race lined him up 20th in the feature for the second consecutive night.

"We were able to stick the middle in turns one and two," he said. "We were really good on the bottom in turns three and four, but so were quite a few other guys. It took a lot of patience. By the end of the race I was out of patience."

Wilson's charge to a ninth-place result marked his eight top 10 of the season with the series.

Next up is a tripleheader this Friday at Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon, N.Y.; Saturday at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, N.Y.; and Sunday at Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon, N.Y.

Dominic Scelzi Produces Season-Best World of Outlaws Result at Cedar Lake

Inside Line Promotions - NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (July 8, 2019) - Dominic Scelzi earned his season-best result with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Saturday at Cedar Lake Speedway.

Scelzi captured a fourth-place finish during the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown finale to cap a busy week that featured four races in a four-day span.

The action began last Wednesday at Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, S.D., during the Star Spangled Showdown. Scelzi qualified 12th quickest and he placed fourth in a heat race during his debut at the oval.

"We qualified decent and ran decent in the heat," he said. "On the first lap of the main event I got my right rear over the edge and fell to 18 th. We drove back to 10th and got ran out of room on a late restart so we fell to 14th, which is where we ended."

Scelzi and his family owned team ventured to Cedar Lake Speedway on Friday. He qualified 18th quickest, but a charge from sixth to fourth place in a heat race locked him into the 12th starting position for the main event.

"We didn't time in very good because I think we made the wrong gear decision," he said. "In the heat we drove from sixth to fourth, which was pretty good. We were good at the beginning of the feature and then they red flagged it with the rain that hit. We came back on Saturday and the track was extremely slick all the way across. As the race went on we got a little looser. We were running ninth on the last restart. I tried to go for a little more, but the guy in front of me checked up and I had to lift so we lost some spots."

Scelzi settled for a 12th-place run.

He did double duty during the night show, competing in both the World of Outlaws race with his family team and in the Midwest Power Series program for Protofab Racing.

Scelzi finished fourth in a Midwest Power Series heat race and he had rallied from eighth to second place in the main event when a broken radiator sent him pitside just after the midpoint of the race. He was credited with an 11th-place result.

The night ended on a better note in World of Outlaws action.

"We got an early pill draw, which helped a lot as we qualified sixth quickest," he said. "We started second and ran second in the heat, which put us in the dash. They had the No. 1 pill left for us so we got the pole for the dash. We led the dash until the last 10 feet coming to the checkered. Brad Sweet got by on the bottom.

"We dogged Brad the whole main event. We were on his bumper the majority of the race. As traffic was getting more difficult to maneuver the track started cleaning off and laying rubber beneath the cushion. I tried to make a move on Brad for the lead, but it didn't stick and I lost a spot to David Gravel. I tried to get him back in the next corner and lost a spot to Carson Macedo so we ended fourth. Second would have been phenomenal, but as good as we were and as close as we were I didn't want to leave any cards on the table."

Scelzi's fourth-place run marked his second top five of the season with the World of Outlaws.

He is scheduled to return to Roth Motorsports this Friday at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif., before a King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series race on Saturday at Petaluma Speedway in Petaluma, Calif.

Kerry Madsen Scores Podium Finish at Cedar Lake Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (July 8, 2019) - Kerry Madsen registered his third podium finish of the season with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series last Saturday during the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown.

The KI Crossbows sponsored driver guided Big Game Motorsports to the 12 th quickest qualifying lap before charging from fourth to second place in a heat race on Friday. Madsen placed fifth in the dash to start fifth in the A Main, which was postponed to Saturday after rain invaded the track.

"We did what we needed to do to get into the dash," he said. "We drew at the back of the dash, which is normal. We weren't great at the start of the feature. The rain came and it was a completely different track the next day. The first couple of laps I lost a couple of spots. I got the elbows up and put the wing back and we made good progress."

Madsen rallied in the closing stage, throwing a slide job on Donny Schatz for the runner-up position. Schatz got the position back and Madsen finished third.

"I got more confidence in it and was driving better," he said. "I passed Donny for second at the end, but gave the spot back. It was a good run."

Madsen capped the night with another solid effort at Cedar Lake Speedway. He qualified ninth quickest and placed third in a heat race before ending eighth in the main event.

"I was a little disappointed with that," he said. "We had a really good car at the end of the race, but the track took rubber. I got held up in the early stage and by the time I got by a driver the leaders had built up a lot of ground. Then it took rubber."

Madsen opened the week by making his debut at Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, S.D., during the Star Spangled Showdown. He qualified 18 th quickest, finished sixth in a heat race and closed the night with a 12th-place result in the feature.

"We qualified terrible, but in the A Main I came up really good," he said. "I was up to around 10th when on a restart I spun out trying to pass a car. I had to go back to the back. We were really making some ground and would have had a nice finish. Then the track took rubber at the end. I got back to 12th."

Madsen will venture to Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, this Saturday.

USAC/CRA AND SOUTHWEST SPRINT CARS AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY THIS SATURDAY!

(Perris, CA, July 8, 2019) This Saturday night July 13th, Perris Auto Speedway will play host to a jointly sanctioned program featuring the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and the Sands Chevrolet USAC/ Southwest Sprint Cars. It will be the first time the two groups have contested a co-sanctioned race in California. Spectator gates will open at 5:00 P.M. with racing at 7:00. At intermission, kids will be allowed onto the track to see all the cars up close and meet and collect candy from all the drivers.

(The two photos attached, one of Arizona's R.J. Johnson racing inside California's Cody Williams and the other of kids collecting candy from the teams at intermission, are courtesy of Doug Allen)

Late last year it was announced that the Southwest Series would allow 410 engines for the first time in 2019. The engine switch allows the Arizona drivers to come to California to race on a more level playing field. Likewise, it allows the drivers of USAC/CRA to journey to Arizona and race in the Southwest Series. Ironically, the same driver leads the championship standings in each series. Garden Grove, California’s Brody Roa, who won the “Doug Fort Memorial” at the Santa Maria Raceway last Saturday night, leads Concord, California’s Damion Gardner by a single point in the CRA Series heading into Saturday’s race. In the Southwest Series, Roa is 53-points in front of Laveen, Arizona’s R.J. Johnson.

“There are a lot of good sprint car drivers in Arizona,” Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian stated. “USAC implementing 410s into the Southwest Series has already allowed us to see some of them on a regular basis for the first time in years. Driver’s like R.J. Johnson, Charles Davis Jr., Stevie Sussex and Mike Martin are top notch competitors in top notch cars. They have been to The PAS several times this year and we hope to see them, and some other top drivers come over to challenge the CRA regulars on Saturday night.”

Like the CRA Series contesting most of its races in California, the Southwest Series confines a majority of its races to Arizona. However, with the temperatures sizzling in the “Copper State” in June, July and August, most of the tracks in the state take those months off. The Southwest Series last raced in Arizona at Canyon Speedway Park on June 8th and will not race in its home state again until September 14th. The three-month break in the schedule creates the opportunity for its teams to head west to race in California. In addition to racing at The PAS this Saturday night, the August 17th race will also be co-sanctioned between the two series.

Saturday’s race will be the fifth USAC/CRA race at The PAS in 2019. Thus far only one driver, Visalia’s Richard Vander Weerd who was born in Upland and spent part of his childhood in Chino, is the only driver with two wins in the first four races. Sikeston, Missouri’s Hunter Schuerenberg and Roa have split the wins in the other two races on the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval.

Due to popular demand with all the fans and the racing teams, the candy giveaway is coming back for the second straight sprint car race at The PAS.

“The candy giveaway for the kids has been very popular,” Kazarian said. “Not only popular with the kids but also the race teams. Our pits are open to the fans after each race, but with many families having a long drive home, they must hit the road. By doing the candy giveaway at intermission, they all get to meet the drivers and the drivers get to meet more kids.”

In addition to the CRA/Southwestern part of the show, The PAS Senior and Young Gun Sprint Cars will also be in action.

Spectator gates for Saturday’s race will open at 5:00 P.M. and the first race will take the green flag at 7:00.

Tickets are $25.00 for adults. Seniors 65 and over get in for $20.00. For active military with proper id and their spouse or date, it is $5.00 each. Teens 13-18 with their school id and kids 6-12 get in for $5.00. Children 5 and under are free. Parking on the fairgrounds is $8.00.

Camping on the fairgrounds opens at noon on Friday. Tailgating on the grassy area outside of turn four begins at 1:00 P.M. on Saturday.

Advance tickets for all Perris Auto Speedway events are available 24-hours a day online at https://bit.ly/2Aa50Lj or by calling 1-800-595-4849. If you do not wish to buy tickets in advance for any race, there will be plenty of tickets for everyone at the ticket window on race night.

Perris Auto Speedway is conveniently located on the SoCal Fair and Event Center (home of October’s Southern California Fair), approximately one hour east of Los Angeles and one-hour North of San Diego.

Sides Hustles to Top-10 Outing at Cedar Lake Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (July 8, 2019) - Jason Sides rallied to record his fourth top 10 of the season with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series last Saturday at Cedar Lake Speedway.

Sides had started the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown opener well, qualifying sixth quickest and winning a heat race to make the dash on Friday. A sixth-place run in the dash lined him up on the outside of the third row for the A Main, which was postponed until Saturday afternoon because of rain.

"We fell to eighth and I was trying to pass for seventh when I spun in turns three and four," he said. "I got in there too hard and missed the bottom and it came around. We went to the rear and got back to 10 th. I was slowing down and making sure I hit my marks. I was mad at myself so I charged hard through there and made sure I was where I needed to be."

Sides overcame the incident to charge from the back of the field to garner the 10th-place finish thanks to a last-lap pass.

It marked the best result of a week that started out well last Wednesday at Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, S.D., which hosted the Star Spangled Showdown. He tied the track record, which he established in 2016.

"We had the same time as the track record three years ago," he said. "I don't know how that happened. We won our heat race and drew the pole for the dash. As soon as we got out there the track started going away quickly and we ended up fourth. From the drop of the green (in the feature) we sucked. We blew off the end running fourth. I slipped off the corner of turn one. I went to the rear and was trying too hard so I blew off the end of the track again. I tried the bottom and was no good there and spun again. We weren't tight enough, but it was a weird track because it was so good so early and it went away so quick."

Sides held on for a 17th-place result.

The week concluded on Saturday evening at Cedar Lake Speedway, where Sides qualifying 20th quickest.

"We assumed they would rework the track after the afternoon feature," he said. "We got back there and found the rear end was broke. We were fixing it and the officials started blowing the horn for qualifying. We didn't do much with the setup for the qualifying. We went out on a slick track and weren't really prepared."

Sides placed seventh in a heat race, third in the Last Chance Showdown and he overcame a part problem to rally from 21st to 16th in the main event.

"I had passed a few cars early on and about Lap 4 or so the fuel shut off blew apart," he said. "I got soaked with fuel. We went to the work area and got it fixed. We restarted last and ended up 16th."

Tim Kaeding will rejoin the team for the race this Friday at Hartford Speedway in Hartford, Mich., during the Battle of Michigan. The weekend wraps up on Saturday at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis., during the Badger 40.

QUICK RESULTS -

July 3 - Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, S.D. - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 4 (1); Feature: 17 (4).

Price Wraps Up Washington Success With Top-Five Finish at Skagit

Inside Line Promotions - ALGER, Wash. (July 8, 2019) - Robbie Price enjoyed a rare off-weekend from Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition to celebrate the Independence Day holiday with family.

However, he didn't stay away from the race track as the team decided to return to Skagit Speedway last Saturday for the Les Schwab Midseason Championship.

With the top eight cars in Skagit Speedway owners points already locked into a scramble, Price was forced to qualify with the rest of the non-points cars for his starting position in the feature. He set fast time among the non-locked-in drivers with a time of 11.756 seconds, placing him ninth on the starting grid for the feature.

With multiple divisions of cars running the speedway throughout the night, Price struggled in the feature with a track that proved tough to pass on. He made some early moves to advance to the fifth position, but as a result of only one caution occurring there was limited opportunity to advance. He ended his march forward with a solid fifth-place showing.

"The format proved a little tough for us as we obviously had to qualify ourselves in while other guys were already locked in," he said. "But we showed some speed setting fast time and were able to pass a few cars on the start to get a top five.

"Given the circumstances and how the track took shape during the night, I'm pretty happy with fifth."

Hoping to build on a successful Washington swing with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour that also saw the Cobble Hill, British Columbia, native claim his first-ever victory with the series at Skagit Speedway and a top 10 at Grays Harbor Raceway, Price and his team are heading to Montana for the Grizzly Nationals this Friday and Saturday at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade.

"I've never raced in Montana, but I've heard a lot of good things about the facilities and racers," he said. "I'm excited to get out there and see where we stack up. I think we got a little momentum coming in."

Price enters the event ranked seventh in the ASCS National Tour's championship standings.

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 8, 2019) - Justin Henderson and Mike Sandvig Racing returned to weekly 410 sprint car action at Knoxville Raceway last Saturday, posting a solid sixth-place result against a stout field of 23 drivers.

Henderson began the night by going out ninth in time trials and laying down the fifth fastest lap at a time of 15.661 seconds. Following time trials, Henderson lined up fifth in his heat race and advanced one spot to finish in the fourth position.

"The car was ok, but we were a little loose," he said. "The track was a little freer than we thought heading out there, but ultimately we moved forward."

Henderson began the 20-lap feature on the outside front row alongside Parker Price-Miller, who got the early jump. Henderson settled into the second position before dropping to third several laps into the race. He then maintained a podium spot until the final handful of laps when he faded to sixth.

"We had a really good battle going early with Lynton Jeffrey and it was really fun out there," he said. "Once Lynton kind of closed me out, I just felt like I couldn't really put anything together to keep moving forward and the guys were gaining on us.

"I'm not really sure the reason. Maybe we missed the setup or maybe I just wasn't hitting my marks, but we'll get it figured out and be better next week."

Next up for Henderson and Sandvig will be Van Wall Equipment Mario County Fair Night next Saturday at Knoxville Raceway.

Henderson currently sits in the fifth position in the track's championship battle - 112 markers behind current point leader Terry McCarl. He trails fourth place Brooke Tatnell by a mere three points.

"We've consistently been a fifth to seventh-place car, but we really want to be a top-three car," Henderson said. "If we get our act together we can definitely make something happen points-wise. I don't think a championship is out of the realm of possibility at this point. We haven't really reached our full potential quite yet and if we can put together a few solid runs here we'll be right in things."

Kaleb Johnson Earns Hard Charger Award at Belleville High Banks

Inside Line Promotions - BELLEVILLE, Kan. (July 8, 2019) - Kaleb Johnson rallied from mechanical woes earlier in the evening to score an 11 th-place finish in United Rebel Sprint Series action Thursday night at Belleville High Banks.

"Our car wouldn't fire for the heat race," he said. "We discovered it was a fueling issue and got it fixed for the feature."

Missing his heat race forced Johnson to start 22nd in the feature.

"We knew it would be tough starting in the back on that big of a track," he said. "I was up to 15th around the halfway point and I wasted four or five laps trying to get around a car. I was lucky the yellow came out then. After that I was able to pick off about four more cars and we finished 11th.

"We moved forward, but I just wish we were able to start a little closer to the front. I guess if there was a positive to the night it was that we got the Hard Charger Award."

While the team had hoped the overheating problems that have plagued their 305 engine this year were finally solved, the issue arose again in the feature and forced the team to cut their planned extended holiday weekend to just the one night.

"We decided that instead of wasting more money, we would just go home and get it resolved before we raced again," he said. "We did finally figure out the problem on Saturday. It was one of those things that kind of make you bang your head against the wall. But now we actually know for sure what the problem was and we know it's fixed."

Johnson's racing plans for this weekend are tentative and contingent on the status of his 360 engine.

"We're hoping to have our 360 engine back to race this week," he said. "If we do, we'll race at Jackson on Friday and Knoxville on Saturday. If not, we'll probably race the 305 at Jackson on Friday, at Park Jefferson on Saturday and in Spencer on Sunday."

Johnson's mechanical woes this season have opened his racing schedule for the remainder of the year.

"We're just going to race as much as we can, whenever we can, for the rest of the year since we've had so much trouble," he said.

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 8, 2019) - Tony Stewart’s Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek campaign through Central Pennsylvania and northern Maryland was complete with seven events in seven days, visiting six tracks in the process.

Although forced to face a few disappointing outcomes, not qualifying for action at Lincoln Speedway and Grandview Speedway on July 1 & 2, Smoke highlighted the trip with a podium performance at Selinsgrove Speedway on June 30, advancing ahead from row five to finish second at the final checkers. The top-five outcome bumped Stewart’s season total to 21.

“It was a fun week in Pennsylvania. The racers in that area of the country are top notch. They are the best in the business,” Tony Stewart explained, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 14 sprint car. “Every lap against that level of talent is important. We learned a lot during our trip and we’ll do our best to put those notes to good use when we return.”

In addition to his podium performance at Selinsgrove, Stewart racked up a pair of 11th place finishes during action at Port Royal Speedway and Hagerstown (Md.) Speedway on July 3 & 4, respectively. Impressive enough, the Port Royal result was a product of row 11, first advancing through the evening’s B-main to qualify for feature competition.

The three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and recent NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee kicked-off his Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek campaign with 15th and 14th place finishes at Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway on June 28 & 29.

Up next on the agenda, Tony Stewart will make his return to the Empire State, rejoining the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 for a three-race weekend on Friday through Sunday, July 12-14. The Columbus, Indiana-native will follow the All Stars to Utica-Rome Speedway, Orange County Fair Speedway and Lebanon Valley Speedway, respectively, during the three-day outing.

Although far from full-time with the Series, Smoke owns one All Star victory in 2019, that occurring at Bubba Raceway Park during the first weekend of the All Star season.

2019 World of Outlaws Championship Standings: 2nd - 4858 points (50 points behind Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 8, 2019) - It was a productive holiday weekend for Donny Schatz and the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 15 sprint car team, not only entering three events in four days across much of the upper-Midwest, but the ten-time and defending World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion attained three consecutive top-ten finishes in the process, two of which resulting in podium performances.

The Fargo, North Dakota-native kicked off his holiday travels with a visit to Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, South Dakota, on Wednesday, July 3. Schatz ended his night third on the podium, battling with Logan Schuchart early before losing a spot to current championship points leader, Brad Sweet, during the late stages of the main event.

The week concluded with a two-night stay at the Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin, on Friday and Saturday, July 5 & 6. Although the two-day program ultimately turned into a one-day program, Mother Nature making her presence known just as feature action was taking off on Friday, Schatz was not distracted, concluding the weekend with a runner-up finish and a seventh place finish, respectively. In fact, Schatz led nine laps during Cedar Lake’s first of two main events on Saturday [Friday’s feature], eight through 16, before losing the top spot to eventual winner, Sheldon Haudenschild, on lap 17.

“That’s how tough the World of Outlaws is right now. You can’t afford to make mistakes. We were close a few times, but we still have a long season ahead. We want to win races and that’s what we are working to do,” Donny Schatz said, who is currently second in the World of Outlaws championship standings. “I have the best team in the business. They put me in a position to win every night. It’s my job to take advantage of those opportunities and get to the front.”

Donny Schatz will continue his quest toward an 11th World of Outlaws championship this Friday and Saturday, July 12 & 13, with a two-day swing through Michigan and Wisconsin. Action will ignite on Friday evening, July 12, with a visit to Hartford Speedway in Hartford, Michigan. The weekend will conclude one evening later with a Saturday night stay at the Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin.

The World of Outlaws did not make an appearance at Hartford Speedway in 2018, but the Greatest Show On Dirt did visit Wilmot Raceway where Schatz finished eighth.

ST. HELENA, Calif. (July 8, 2019) - Despite a tough outing to kick-off his 2019 Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek campaign in Pennsylvania Posse Country, finishing 17th during a visit to the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway on Monday, July 1, St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu bounced back in a big way and rallied for four consecutive top-ten finishes, highlighting all results with a seventh place outcome during action at Hagerstown (Md.) Speedway on Thursday, July 4.

Abreu’s evening in northern Maryland ignited with the fastest time during qualifying time trials.

“We had a fun trip. Racing with the Pennsylvania Posse is always a fun experience. The racing is competitive and the fans are second to none. We enjoy getting the opportunity to see old friends and make new ones,” Rico Abreu explained, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Southern Pacific Farms/Priority Aviation/No. 24 sprint car. “I’m proud of my team and what we were able to accomplish. Considering the level of competition we were up against every night, earning the results that we did is motivating. I’m excited to see what’s in store for our team down the road.”

Adding to his seventh place run at Hagerstown Speedway, Abreu earned top-ten finishes at Grandview Speedway on July 2, Port Royal Speedway on July 3, and once again at Port Royal’s ‘Speed Palace’ on July 6th, finishing eighth, ninth, and eighth, respectively. Impressive enough, Abreu was forced to rally or maintain position to accomplish all four top-ten appearances, highlighting all accounts with a hard charge from 21st to finish ninth at Port Royal Speedway on Wednesday, July 3.

Padding an impressive resume already assembled in 2019, Abreu’s stretch of four consecutive top-ten results bumped his season total to 22, all of which accomplished in 35 starts.

Team Turner Racing Takes Trio of Top-Fives at Ohsweken and Brighton
 

CAISTOR CENTRE, Ont. (July 8, 2019) – Team Turner Racing returned to action for a doubleheader weekend of 360 Sprint Car action with stops at Ohsweken Speedway on July 5 and Brighton Speedway to compete with the Southern Ontario Sprints on July 6 where the team managed to gather three top-five finishes and five top-10 results, collectively. Ryan Turner led the way with a pair of top-five results while Cory Turner earned his third win of the season on Saturday at Brighton.

At Ohsweken on Friday, all three drivers were able to race forward from their starting spots in their heat races. Both Jamie and Ryan claimed second place finishes in their heats while Cory raced to a third-place result after starting eighth.

“Friday night we tried a bit of a different setup and we were fast right out of the gate,” Ryan said of his Kingpin Farms/Burger Barn-sponsored No.91. “In the heat race, we made some interesting moves and it all panned out when we ran second. I think I almost had something for the leader, but kind of had some brake problems late in the heat.”

Come Feature time, Cory lined-up fourth while Ryan was fifth and Jamie started from ninth. Cory and Ryan were both able to race among the top-five for the majority of the race before Ryan claimed a fourth-place finish and Cory tallied a sixth-place result.

“I wish it had gone green to checkered because I thought I was going to get by some guys in lapped traffic,” Ryan said of the Feature. “I was running a bit different line than the leaders because they were all up top and I was on the bottom. I just need to find a little more momentum there.”

“We were good early,” Cory said. “We were up to third until about lap 10 and then Westbrook got by me, my brother got by me, and we got a late caution before Mack DeMan ended up getting to me with a couple laps to go. The car was really good early and it just really got free. We haven’t had a track slow down like that in a long time.”

Jamie came home in 11th-place on Friday at Ohsweken and was quite pleased both with the racetrack and how drivable his car was.

“I was pretty decent Friday night and I just faded a bit at the end,” Jamie said. “The track was in exceptional shape and it was really good to see the changes they made at the track. I can really see we’re going to have a lot of fun there the rest of the year. We missed it a little bit, but we were quick early on so we were happy with it.”

After making the trip east on Saturday afternoon to Brighton, all three cars were quick once again in heat race action with Cory and Ryan both claiming heat race wins while Jamie was second to Cory in the first heat race. All three drivers made it in the redraw and Cory started outside the front row with Ryan lining up fifth and Jamie in eighth.

Cory jumped out to the lead on the opening lap and then paced all 25 laps to score the win.

“Our car unloaded fast,” Cory said. “We were good in hot laps, we were good in the heat race and I was lucky enough to draw the front row in the Feature and lead every lap just like the last time we were here. Our car was just a Cadillac. We could drive through the middle, on the top, on the bottom. We just went where the lapped traffic wasn’t. We were good.”

Ryan ran second from lap three until the final lap when he ended up third after Mitch Brown got past him in traffic. His third-place finish was the third-straight podium finish to start the SOS season for the series point leader.

“We still have the points lead after Saturday and we’ve been really good,” Ryan said. “We’re almost there, we just need one or two adjustments and we’ll be right there for the win.”

Jamie ended up with a sixth-place finish after battling for a top-five spot late in the race. It was a strong conclusion to a fun weekend for the pilot of the Charlie Bee Honey/DSE Performance/Mudcat Entertainment Centre No.11.

“The guys did another good job Saturday night and we had another really nice track,” Jamie stated. “It was slick, but it was smooth. We changed the car a little bit during the day and it was for the better. I felt really comfortable all night. I was really close to a podium and it just got away, but I could see it. It was a good race and I had a lot of fun.”

Team Turner Racing will be back in action on Friday, July 12 at Ohsweken. Then the team will prepare for Humberstone Speedway on July 14 where they will enter a Crate Sprint Car in the rescheduled Bob Deswiage Memorial. The race is being run in honour of their late crew member who passed away over the off-season. Crew-member Brady Chastney will compete in a car styled after one of Bob’s old street stocks.

“We’re really looking forward to that event,” Cory said. “Our crew guy Brady is going to run a Crate car for Bob that we have all decaled up like one of his old street stocks, so it’s going to be a pretty cool night.”

Howard Moore Races to USCS Outlaw Thunder Win at the Ditch Make-A-Wish Night at Riverside International Speedway Up Next

Memphis, Tennessee (07/08/19) – Howard Moore piloted the Rains Motorsports No. 3 High Performance Lubricants Sprint Car to the United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder Tour win on Wednesday evening at Clayton Allen’s Riverside International Speedway.

The victory was his third win of 2019.

"I knew that my crew had given me a car that was capable of winning the race, and that I just had to do my job and that's exactly what I did," Moore said. "Thanks again to Mike [Ward], A.G. [Rains] and the whole team for giving me the opportunity for taking all of us to victory lane and holding the checkers. This gives us three wins on the season and two of them in the No. 3 car.

“Special thanks to CP Carillo, Engler Machine and Tool, Auto Meter Gauges, Schoenfeld Headers, Fel-Pro Gaskets and All Star Performance for their great support."

A steamy Wednesday night took Howard Moore to Riverside International Speedway (West Memphis, Arkansas), where he was competing with the United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder Tour.

Behind the wheel of the Rains Motorsports No. 3 High Performance Lubricants Sprint Car, Howard screamed away from the field in his heat race to score the win.

Via his heat performance, he locked into the third-starting spot for the 30-lap feature.

A tricky surface awaited the 23-car field for the finale, and early in the feature Howard bided his time as he slipped back as far as the fourth position. By the midway point of the feature he found his way into the second spot behind race leader, Marshall Skinner.

On the 25th circuit of the 30 lapper Moore shot to the lead and went on to score the victory, which marked his third of 2019.

On Friday night Howard took the Rains Motorsports No. 3 into battle at Johnny Stokes' Magnolia Motor Speedway in another USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour event. After finishing second in his heat race, Moore earned the eighth-starting spot for the feature. Throughout the caution-plagued, 30 lapper he worked his into a podium finish with a third-place performance behind Derek Hagar and Dale Howard.

Saturday night's event at Lexington 104 Speedway (Lexington, Tennessee) got off to an inauspicious start. The motor in Moore's No. 3 Sprinter expired in hot laps. The team thrashed and was able to replace the engine before heat race action. Howard went on to win the heat race from the second-starting position. Unfortunately, rain set in before the feature could be contested, forcing the remainder of the program to be postponed to a future date.

"I want to say a very special thanks to everyone who helped or even offered to help with the motor change," Moore noted. "Without everyone's help we wouldn't have been able to get back on track."

Full results from the event are available at www.USCSRacing.com .

Howard Moore returns to the driver’s seat this Saturday night at Riverside International Speedway as the venerable facility hosts the annual Make-A-Wish Night, which pays homage to the late Sonny Sayre and Craig Guy.
