Thunder on the Hill Presents:

BRIGGS DANNER EYES FIRST USAC NON-WING NATIONAL SPRINT CAR SERIES WIN AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY TUESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 15

BECHTELSVILLE, PA June 11, 2021 . . . . . . Nineteen year old Briggs Danner of Allentown, PA would like nothing more than to be sitting in victory lane and holding that big Thunder on the Hill check on Tuesday night, June 15 when the AMSOIL USAC Non-Wing National Sprint Car Series invades the Grandview Speedway.

This will mark the opening night of the USAC Eastern Storm that is part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. The win in the Jesse Hockett Classic 40 lap USAC feature is worth $6,000. The 358 Modifieds will be an added attraction to the program competing in qualifying events all leading up to the 30 lap feature paying $3,000 to win. Gates open at 5 PM and race time is set for 7:30 PM.

The youthful Briggs Danner has been making quite a name for himself in local non-wing racing. He started his career in Quarter Midgets, moved into SpeedSTRs, Micros, TQ’s on asphalt, Pro 4’s at Mahoning Valley, 358 Modifieds at Grandview as well as 360 and 410 Non-Wing Sprints. It’s hard to imagine competing in that many different classes by the age of nineteen.

There are some big nights coming for Briggs Danner and it starts with a return to his home track where he will be on the national stage Tuesday night at Grandview, going up against the best in the business of non-wing sprint car racing. It’s USAC Baby!

“Non-Wing sprint cars are fun at Grandview and it was an awesome experience coming back to the hill in a sprint car, after having many laps from previous seasons at the track in a modified.” Danner added, “It was a new perspective for sure.”

Danner states the biggest difference between racing a modified and a non-wing sprint car is the weight of the cars and the size of the front tires. The sprint cars are obviously much lighter and with the modifieds, you drive them a lot straighter because of the big front tires. “I believe I have adjusted well to a non-wing car simply because of just being able to adapt to new things and it is also a huge help when the car is good and all I have to learn is driving it,” commented an excited Danner.

In the April USAC show at Grandview, Danner impressed the crowd by setting fast time in qualifying then drove the GEI Enterprise #5G to a solid ninth place feature finish. “I'm not sure if there's really a secret to setting fast time at Grandview.” Danner explained, “Going out for qualifying somewhat early was for sure a help but other than that, I think the key was just not being afraid to enter one and three fast through the "rough stuff."

Turning these quick laps on the tight and tricky high banks of Grandview Speedway is a thrill but there are also times when you just hold your breath. “I'd have to say the most common time that happens is if there is a wreck right in front of me and there is nowhere to go to get away from it.” Danner added, “Grandview is a narrow track, with wall on the inside and outside, you have to be on your toes. The USAC guys are good, they race clean and they know where they’re are putting their cars in every corner.”

“The guy to beat is Brady Bacon and the stats (especially at Grandview) prove it.” Danner continued to say, “I feel like he consistently has one of the best cars everywhere and he is a very smart driver with a lot of laps in a sprint car.” Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, AZ has won the last four USAC events at Grandview Speedway.

Briggs Danner is in the process of molding his future in sprint car racing and he would like to thank his family and friends as well as his sponsors that include GEI Enterprise, E Schneider & Sons Recycling, Valley Forge Inc, Transfleet Concrete, Auto Works Collision Center and Frozen Farmer. So in closing, what will it take to win a USAC National event at Grandview on Tuesday night, June 15? Danner replied, “First it will take a good qualifying run to start up front in the feature and on-going adjustments for a slick track to be out front and stay out front.”

If you’ve never seen a USAC Non-Wing National Tour event, plan to be at Grandview Speedway Tuesday night, June 15. In addition Briggs Danner expect the “Macho Man” Brady Bacon, the “Madman” Robert Ballou, Kevin Thomas, Jr., Tanner Thorson, Logan Seavey in the Baldwin #5, Jake Swanson, CJ Leary, Mark Smith, Chris Windom, Chase Johnson, Tim Buckwalter, Alex Bright and Steven Drevicki just to name a few.

The 358 Modifieds will share the spotlight with qualifying events leading up to a 30 lap feature paying $3,000 to the winner. Likely contenders for the event include red hot Brett Kressley, Craig VonDohren, Duane Howard, Jeff Strunk, Rick Laubach, Danny Bouc, Ryan Godown and Jared Umbenhauer.

Advance tickets are available by calling 443 513 4456. Please speak clearly and provide your first and last name and the number of tickets you need. Tickets may be paid for and picked up at the WILL CALL window on race night. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM.

Goldesberry Makes All Four Features with All-Stars

Springfield, IL (June 9, 2021)- Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team finished a four race weekend with the FloRacing All-Star Circuit of Champions making all four feature events. The Rockstar Energy Drink team took to tracks in Illinois and Wisconsin.

The first event was at Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, IL. With 32 cars signed in, Goldesberry would time in 11th quick overall and 4th quick in his group. The Rockstar Energy Drink #65 would start on the pole of the heat race. He would hang on for the fifth and final transfer. Goldesberry would line up in the 17th starting position for the A main and finish 18th.

“Overall, Fairbury was a solid night for us. We qualified well and got our weekend started off pretty well.” Goldesberry said.

Friday night the team would make the three hour tow north to Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, WI. Again, Goldesberry would time in his Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim 11th out of 39 cars and fifth in his group. The Rockstar Energy Drink machine would line up inside row three of the heat race. Goldesberry narrowly avoided disaster in the first corner as another car got into the #65 which pushed Goldesberry into a car on his outside. The Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim would be forced to the work area to change a left rear tire. Being forced to start on the tail after the work area, Goldesberry narrowly missed the final transfer finishing sixth. Goldesberry would finish second in the B main to pick up a transfer to the nights feature event. The Rockstar Energy Drink #65 would start the feature in the 22nd position and finish 21st.

“After the heat race, we were just glad to get out of Wilmot not tearing up much equipment.” said Goldesberry. “It was a racing deal and you get that with tough competition.”

On Saturday night, the traveling series headed north once again to Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, WI. The Rockstar Energy Drink #65 timed in 22ndin a field of 36 cars and fifth in the group. Goldesberry would line up inside the third row in the heat race and finish sixth. Goldesberry started outside the front row in the B main and won. For the feature event, the Rockstart Energy Drink would start 21st and cross the finish line 15th.

“Plymouth has always been a place we have struggled a little bit. We tried some different things to the car this weekend and think we found something for that place. It was the best I felt there in a long time.” said Goldesberry

The weekend would close with a visit to the famed Angel Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, WI. Goldesberry would go out late to qualify on a track that went away fast. With only 26 cars on hand qualifying was straight up. The Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim timed in 23rd which put Goldesberry to start eighth in the heat race. Goldesberry was able to pick up the sixth and final transfer and lock into the nights A main. The Rockstar Energy Drink #65 would line up 18th for the feature and finish 16th.

“We did not qualify well at Sun Prairie and we got buried in the heat race. Fortunately, we were able to transfer out of the heat. In the feature, we were racing hard with a lot of good guys and did the best we could.” Goldesberry said

“Overall, it was a good weekend. This was the second time we raced with the All-Stars this year and they are a tough group. You get faster by racing against faster competition. There were great crowds at all four races and we had some great fan interaction with our Rockstar partnership.

OLD GROVES WINS CAREER 1ST IN RUSH SPRINTS; AGELESS WONDER BREWCAREER 1ST PACE RUSH LATE MODEL WINS FOR MORROW & ALLEN IN THEIR ROOKIE SEASON; 17-YEAR-ER SWEEPS RUSH PRO MOD WEEKEND; CURRY IS 1ST FEMALE RUSH ADULT KART WINNER
By Marcie Barlow

(June 10, 2021) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Pulaski, PA)...All of the Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC divisions were in action this past weekend including the Late Models, Sportsman Modifieds, Sprint Cars, Pro Mods, Stock Cars, and Karts as Mother Nature provided sunshine and warm temperatures throughout the region. Zach Morrow, Austin Allen, Nolan Groves, and Morgan Curry tallied their career first victories in their respective RUSH divisions. In addition, veterans Mike Knight and Al Brewer proved that they still had the skills needed to make it to victory lane.

The RUSH Late Model Division made their first ever appearance of 2021 at New York's Utica-Rome Speedway for a Pace Performance Weekly Series special on Friday night. Chad Homan and Austin Allen led the field to the green with Allen taking the lead. The two battled for the lead before Homan took command on lap five and went on to claim the $1,000 victory. Allen held on for second with Sean Beardsley, Brett Belden and Jason Knowles completing the top five. The RUSH Late Models will return on August 6.

Virginia driver Kyle Hardy invaded Dog Hollow Speedway Friday evening and was able to score his first ever victory at the Northern Cambrian Pa. oval. Hardy, who leads both the National Weekly Series and Flynn's Tire/Born2Run Lubricants Touring Series standings, led the 20-lap main event from start to finish and scored a convincing over Zach Morrow, Tom Snyder, who was subbing for Joe Martin, Michael Duritsky, Jr., and Kyle Smith, Jr. Hardy was getting tuned up for the $3,000 to-win Tour race on July 2.

Raceway 7 RUSH Late Model action was brought to the green by Joe Long and Cory Sines. Long grabbed the top spot with Dave Airgood, Jr. in second. The fight for positions three through six saw Sines, Darrell Bossard, Breyton Santee and Josh Ferry battle early on with Bud Watson joining in as the event neared its midpoint. A caution on lap 11 slowed the field and also saw Airgood retire to the pits. Long went on to lead the final nine circuits to claim his first win of 2021 and second of his career in RUSH competition. Santee, Sines, Bossard and Watson rounded out the top five.

Jeremy Pilkerton claimed his fourth RUSH Late Model victory at Potomac Speedway on Friday night. Pilkerton took the top spot from Delaware invader Matt Hill on the 14th circuit and went on to the victory over Hill, Megan Mann, Ed Pope, Jr. and Ben Bowie.

Friday night racing action at The Hill Speedway saw Ernie Martin lead the first circuit of the Pace RUSH Late Model main event. Steve LeBarron took command on lap two with Jared Keeney close behind. The duo’s battle for the top spot kept the fans on the edge of their seats for the remainder of the main event. Keeney edged ahead to claim the lead on lap eight but a determined LeBarron fought back and took the lead one lap later. At the checkered it was LeBarron, the track's 2020 champion, scoring a very well deserved first RUSH Late Model victory of 2021 over Keeney. Brad Smith, Darrin Horton and Ernie Martin claimed spots three through five.

Saturday evening’s RUSH Late Model action at the Stateline Speedway provided lots of side-by-side racing action. Brian Larson led the first eight circuits holding off the challenges of D.J. Krug and Bud Watson. Watson nosed ahead to lead lap nine followed by Larson, Khole Wanzer and Steve Dixon. Several cautions slowed the action on laps 11, 12 and 13 and provided veteran Scott Gurdak with the opportunity he needed to take the lead. Gurdak was able to work his way around Watson when racing action resumed. He led the remainder of the main event to score his first victory of 2021 over Watson, Darrell Bossard, David Parker and Jason Genco.

Defending track champion Ben Policz and former RUSH Sprint Car racer Zach Morrow led the 19-car field to the green in RUSH Late Model action at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway on Saturday. Morrow, a rookie RUSH Late Model competitor in 2021, led the entire 20-lap distance to score his first ever Late Model victory as he currently leads the $1,000 to-win RUSH "Track Pack" points at PPMS. Joe Martin, brothers Jake and Zach Gunn, and Daryl Charlier followed Morrow across the finish line.

Chad Homan continued his winning ways at Fulton Speedway on Saturday night as he picked up his third win of the season at the New York oval. Max Hill led the first 12 circuits before Homan took the lead. Chris Fleming battled Homan for the top spot in the final five laps but was unable to overtake him. At the checkered it was Homan who scored his second victory of the weekend. Fleming held on for the second spot with David Pangrazio, Sean Beardsley and Hill completing the top five.

Rookie competitor Austin Allen scored his career victory on Saturday night at Woodhull Raceway in RUSH Late Model competition. Allen weathered four cautions and withstood the challenges of Brian Knowles to score a very popular win in just the eighth race of his career! Jason Knowles, Dusty Waters and Steve LeBarron claimed positions three through five.

Levi Crowl continued his winning ways at Winchester Speedway on Saturday. Crowl used the outside front row starting position to his advantage as beat Devin Brannon to the first turn and never looked back. A lap three caution slowed the field when Brannon spun and collected his father Allan in the process. Several late race cautions slowed the field but each time the racing action resumed Crowl maintained the top spot and went on to claim the $1,000 victory. Lady racer Megan Mann scored her second top five finish of the weekend to capture the second spot (a career Winchester best) over Scott Sweeney, Jr. and Daniel Brown, Jr. Devin Brannon recovered from the early race incident and worked his way back to the fifth spot.

Fresh off the $2,000 Flynn's Tire/Born2Run Lubricants Tour win, Jeremy Wonderling scored his second consecutive victory at the Genesee Speedway Saturday night. Wonderling led ever circuit of the 25-lap main event to score a six second victory over Doug Ricotta. Jimmy Johnson, J.J. Mazur and Bill Holmes followed Ricotta in positions three through five.

Sunday evening’s Pace Performance RUSH Late Model action at the Eriez Speedway was led to the green by veterans Mike Knight and Chub Frank. Knight took command at the start and was followed by Jason Genco, Frank, Scott Gurdak and Bruce Hordusky. Several cautions would slow the field but each time racing action resumed Knight stayed in command and went on to score his second RUSH Late Model victory of the season at the Erie oval and also maintained the points lead in the RUSH "Track Pack" at Eriez. Genco captured the runner-up position with Frank claiming third. Hordusky, who made his season debut, and Gurdak completed the top five.

The Pace Performance RUSH Sprint Cars were in action on both Saturday and Sunday as part of the Western PA Speedweek shows at Sharon Speedway and Tri-City Raceway Park. Saturday night at Sharon, 17-year-old Nolan Groves scored his first ever victory defeating two-time Series Champion Brian Ruhlman by more than 3.5 seconds. Most impressively was the fact that 2020 "Futures Cup" Champion did it from 12th starting spot against an all-time record 23-car field! Steve Pedley, Blaze Myers and Brian Ruhlman in his season debut rounded out the top five.

Third generation racer Gale Ruth, Jr. dominated Sunday’s RUSH Sprint Car event at Tri-City to become the third member of his family to stand in victory lane at the Franklin, PA oval! Ruth became the first repeat winner of the season after six Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series events. Veterans Arnie Kent and Rod George swapped the second and third positions several times during the 20-lap main event; at the checkered flag it was Kent who claimed the runner-up spot over George. John Mollick and Groves completed the top five.

An invert zero in RUSH Sportsman Modified action at the Sharon Speedway placed defending Series’ champion Chas Wolbert on the front row. Wolbert led the entire distance of the 20-lap event to claim his second win in three events thus far at the Hartford, Ohio oval in 2021. Wolbert continues to lead the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly Series standings as well as the Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series and Sharon track points. Justin Shea finished in the second spot with 14-year-old Rookie Ben Easler capturing third. Rob Kristyak and Tony Tatgenhorst completed the top five.

Weekly Pace Performance RUSH Pro Mod action took place at both Stateline and Bradford Speedways this past weekend. Sixty-five-year-old veteran Al Brewer proved that “age is just a number” as he scored victories at both tracks for his first wins of 2021! On Saturday evening at Stateline, Brewer led the main event from start to finish to claim the win over Mike Eschrich, Dennis Lunger, Adam Ashcroft and C.J. Irons. In Sunday night action at Bradford, Brewer defeated Lunger, and Critter Hemphill.

Weekly Pace Performance RUSH Stock Car action at Dog Hollow Speedway saw Bob Torquato score his second divisional win of 2021. Rookie Mikael Beaver was victorious in RUSH Stock Car action at both Stateline and Eriez Speedways.

Pace Performance/Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Karting action at the Stateline Speedway continued this week with the following visiting victory lane: RUSH Amateur – Bexley Smith; Junior #1 – Ryan Chase; Junior #2 – Cody Rickard and Adults – Morgan Curry. Curry's win came over standout Jay Groves amongst the 10-kart field as she became the first ever female winner in the RUSH Adult Kart class.

HUGE WEEK COMING UP FOR PACE RUSH SPRINT CARS; TUESDAY AT SHARON WITH THE ALL STARS FOLLOWED BY THE RICHEST WEEKEND IN HISTORY AT MCKEAN & BRADFORD JUNE 19-20 FOR A PAIR OF $1000 TO-WIN, $175 TO-START EVENTS
By Mike Leone

(June 11, 2021) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


(Pulaski, PA)...The Pace Performance RUSH Sprint Car Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC is gearing up for a huge week of competition. The RUSH Sprints will be at Sharon Speedway on Tuesday (June 15) with the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars followed by a pair of $1,000 to-win, $175 to-start Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series specials on back-to-back nights just 15 miles apart in McKean County, Pennsylvania with Saturday night (June 19) at McKean County Raceway and Sunday evening at Bradford Speedway.

Tuesday will mark the third appearance of the season by the Pace RUSH Sprint Cars at Sharon Speedway where they are presented by Terry Bowser Excavating. Tuesday will be another Sprint Car doubleheader at Sharon as Ohio Speedweek for the All Stars makes a stop at the Hartford, Ohio oval. The event will also be broadcast live on FloRacing following tremendous exposure on DIRTVision on May 22 with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Sprint Cars.

Sixty-one-year-old Rod George won the May 22 show at Sharon, while 17-year-old Nolan Groves won his first career race last Saturday night doing it from the 12th starting spot over the record 23-car field! There have been eight different RUSH Sprint Car winners in 11 races run all-time at Sharon as Chad Ruhlman is the only driver with multiple victories at four.

After not operating each of the past two seasons, McKean is under new management in 2021 led by Close Racing Supply owner Joel Smith and former promoter Ken Leet. MCR has completed one show this season on May 27 and is running a specials-only slate of events that includes the RUSH Late Models and RUSH Pro Mods. Bradford meanwhile had an excellent first season under Dennis Cummings despite the pandemic and has completed two events thus far in 2021. Bradford features the RUSH Late Models and RUSH Pro Mods weekly.

During the inaugural 2018 season for the RUSH Sprint Cars, Chad Ruhlman won both shows at Bradford and the one and only race ever held at McKean. The RUSH Sprints then made one appearance at Bradford in 2019, which was won by Bradley Blackshear for his first career Series win.

"This will be a tremendous week for our Series," stated RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "To be in front of big crowd at Sharon with the All Stars and have national coverage on Flo is great exposure for our racers and RUSH. Then to have two $1000 to-win races just 15 miles apart on successive nights is awesome. McKean has done some reconfiguration to their 1/3-mile track to make the racing better, while our past shows at Bradford on the 1/4-mile bullring were very exciting."

The RUSH Sprints have competed six times this year around the circuit with five different winners. The only repeat winner is Gale Ruth, Jr. The father-son duo of Chad Ruhlman and Kevin Ruhlman have also been victorious. The battle of the $5,000 to-win Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Championship is very tight as just nine points separate the top five racers! Groves is the current point lead by four over two-time champion Chad Ruhlman. George and Ruth are tied for third just one-point behind Ruhlman. Blaze Myers is having a consistent start to his first full season of RUSH Sprint racing as he sits fifth. Brian Cressley leads the "Futures Cup" points.

McKean & Bradford Payoff: 1. $1,000 2. $500 3. $350 4. $275 5. $250 6. $240 7. $230 8. $225 9. $220 10. $215 11. $210 12. $205 13. $200 14. $195 15. $190 16. $185 17. $180 18-24. $175. Tow/Non-Qualifier $75.

Waynesfield to honor Rick Ferkel during Ohio Speedweek

Thursday, June 10, 2021

WAYNESFIELD, Ohio – Waynesfield Raceway Park will honor Rick Ferkel, one of the first true outlaw sprint car drivers when the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions 39th Annual Cometic Gaskets Ohio Sprint Speedweek makes a stop Wednesday, June 16. The Rick Ferkel Classic is the fifth stop during the annual trek through the Buckeye State which features 8 nights of racing over 9 days.

Waynesfield Promoter Shane Helms first promoted the Rick Ferkel Classic in 2018 at Atomic Speedway near Chillicothe, Ohio. In the event sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions, Cole Duncan scored the win. In 2019 the Rick Ferkel Classic moved to Waynesfield and Plano, Texas native TJ Michael captured the win. Michael already has a victory at “The Field” in 2021.

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.

“Rick was bigger than life when I was growing up. He was and still is one of the best ambassadors sprint car racing has. Rick has always been so kind and accommodating to the fans and has mentored several talented drivers,” said Helms. “This is just our way of honoring a true legend of the sport. Our half of the 50/50 sales will go to Rick.”

“I feel so honored and humbled by this. I just always tried to race as hard as I could and be kind to everyone along the way. Racing is my life and I’ve been so blessed and touched by everyone involved in the sport,” said Ferkel.

Speedweek always brings a diverse field of competitors. Not only will the 12 All Star teams be in action, but also racers from all over the country. Many drivers have said Waynesfield is one of their favorite Speedweek stops as the little bullring produces close quarter action. Speedweek last visited Waynesfield in 2018 and Texas driver and three time All Star Champion Aaron Reutzel took the victory over Kyle Larson and Cole Duncan.

Also in competition Wednesday will be the 360 verses 305 sprint challenge paying the feature winner $2,000. The highest finishing 305 in the A-main will receive an extra $200.

Helms and Sons Excavating is also offering a $1,000 bonus for any driver that has competed at Waynesfield in 2021 that can defeat the All Stars and win the feature.

Pit gates will open Wednesday at 3 p.m. with general admission gates opening at 4 p.m. The drivers’ meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. with hot laps at 6 p.m. and racing started around 7:15 p.m.

Tickets are $25 for adults; $20 for seniors (ages 62 and up); $12 for teens (ages 11-15); and kids 10 and under get in free. Pit passes are $35 and $25 for kids 10 and under.

OHIO SPEEDWEEK TO MAKE A STOP AT SHARON ON TUESDAY FEATURING THE ALL STAR SPRINTS FOR $6000 TO-WIN PLUS NON-WING RUSH SPRINTS

By Mike Leone

June 10, 2021


(Hartford, OH)…The 39th annual Cometic Gaskets Ohio Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires is set to make a stop at Sharon Speedway this Tuesday (June 15). The FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will feature the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars along with the non-wing Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars. Warm-ups are slated for approximately 6:15 p.m. followed by qualifying and racing. The early outlook calls for sunshine and temps in the mid 70s.

Tuesday will mark the second of four appearances by the All Stars at Sharon in 2021 as Tony Stewart's Series will return for the "Lou Blaney Memorial" on Saturday, July 10 and Justin Snyder's "Salute to the Troops" the following day. All events will pay $6,000 to-win, $550 to start. Tickets for all events are available by going to https://sharonspeedway.simpletix.com.

Ohio Speedweek will feature eight races in nine nights with Sharon being stop number four on the grueling swing through the Buckeye State. A $12,000 points fund is on the line with $5,000 to the champion; $2,500 for second, $2,000 for third, $1,500 for fourth, and $1,000 for fifth.

After a five-year absence, Ohio Speedweek returned to Sharon in 2010 as Tim Shaffer topped a 42-car field for the victory. In 2011, it was hometown favorite Dale Blaney winning the Sharon leg of Speedweek over a 45-car field. In 2012, in a stunning turn of events, local racer Brandon Matus came out victorious for his first career win with both the All Stars and at Sharon. Another strong field of 43 cars was on hand. The 2013 event was rained out before a car ever hit the speedway, and the 2014 event fell victim to Mother Nature before the gates ever opened.

In 2015, Dale Blaney won his second Speedweek race in three events at Sharon over another strong 42-car field. Bryan Clauson topped a huge 51-car field in 2016 winning his first career All Star race before tragically losing his life in a racing accident later in the summer. In 2017, Kyle Larson scored a popular win over a big field of 48 cars. Larson's bid for two straight Sharon Speedweek wins failed when Christopher Bell made a late race pass to win in 2018 with 48 cars were on hand. The 2019 Speedweek show was rained. Last year, saw the "Lou Blaney Memorial" and Justin Snyder's "Salute to the Troops" events fall under Speedweek due to the COVID-19 pandemic; in those events Cale Conley and Larson were victorious over the 39 and 38-car fields respectively.

Speedweek always brings a diverse field of competitors. Not only will the All Stars' base of 12 full-time competitors be in action, but also racers from all over the country in addition to the stars of central Pa., Ohio, and locally. The average car count since Speedweek returned to Sharon in 2010 has been 43.5.

Sharon has hosted four successful "410" Sprint Car events in 2021. Justin Peck won the May 1 All Star show over a stellar 41-car field worth $6,000 for his first career Sharon win. George Hobaugh returned to victory lane on May 15 over the 30-car field nearly three years after his first career Sprint win. Dave Blaney thrilled the hometown capacity crowd on May 22 winning his first World of Outlaws show in 24 years. Then last Saturday night, invader Ryan Smith won the Western PA Speedweek show over the 38-car field.

The Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars will round out the two-division Sprint Car program on Tuesday night. Sixty-one-year-old Rod George won the May 22 opener, while 17-year-old Nolan Groves won his first career race last Saturday night doing it from the 12th starting spot over the record 23-car field. The RUSH Sprints have competed six times this year around the circuit with five different winners. The only repeat winner is Gale Ruth, Jr. The father-son duo of Chad Ruhlman and Kevin Ruhlman have also been victorious.

There have been eight different RUSH Sprint Car winners in 11 races run all-time at Sharon. Still Chad Ruhlman, the 2018 and 2019 RUSH $5,000 champion, is the only driver with multiple victories at four. Chad is in search of his third $5,000 Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Championship in four years; however, currently Groves sits atop the points chase by four over Ruhlman and five over George.

Fans can not only experience viewing from the frontstretch and backstretch grandstands, but also from the infield fan zone. The fan zone, which includes a concessions and restrooms, debuted in 2020 during the COVID-19 shortened season. Sharon is the only track in the area to have viewing from the unique infield perspective. There will be times throughout the night when fans can cross on the frontstretch back and forth.

Pits passes will go on sale at 3 p.m. with grandstands at 4. Sprint Car motor heat is scheduled for 6 p.m. followed by warmups, Sprint Car qualifying and racing. Grandstand admission for those 14 and over is $25. Patio seating upgrades are just $5 and fan suite seating upgrades are just $20 over the cost of general admission.

Leading the points earlier in the season, Madsen and company overcame a tough stretch in Indiana three weeks back and backed it up with a trio of second place finishes in Wisconsin this past weekend as they look to ride this wave of momentum into Ohio Speedweek.

“We have actually had a pretty good year to date,” Ian Madsen said. “We did have three four pretty tough nights during the Indiana Invasion, but the guys never flinched and stayed with it. We fell back a little in the points, but after our trip to Wisconsin, we are bac where we want to be and its going to make for a really huge Ohio Speedweek.”

Over the last week, Madsen has moved the Sam McGhee Motorsports team back into second in the standings following a fourth place run at Fairbury, followed by a trio of second place finishes at Wilmot, Plymouth, and Angell Park Speedway.

With plenty of work still to be done, Madsen’s next test is quickly approaching in the name of Ohio Speedweek.

“I am really looking forward to getting into Ohio Speedweek,” Madsen said. “It will be a great test for our team, and I think we have the potential to do some really great things over the next nine nights with eight races sprinkled in.”

Kicking off on Friday night at Attica Raceway Park, the series will travel to Fremont Speedway on Saturday before the lone day off on Sunday. Next week the slate will resume at Wayne County on Monday, Sharon Speedway on Tuesday, Waynesfield Raceway Park on Wednesday, Muskingum on Thursday, Limaland on Friday, and Portsmouth on Saturday.

“Some of these places I have ran before and had success, and some are going to be new to me,” Madsen said. “Thankful for the opportunity and looking forward to going after an Ohio Speedweek title and bringing us closer in the series Championship hunt.”

Ian and Sam McGhee Motorsports would like to thank Mike McGhee and Associates, XYZ, Indy Metal Finishing, Finer Cuts Lawn Care, Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants, FK Rod Ends, Zipbonds.com, Indy Race Parts, Winters Racing Products, Slade Shock Technology, AL Drivelines, Ecomend, BMRS, Fisher Racing Engines, Real Capz, Maxim Racing, Kears Speed Shop, X Caliber Graphics, Wilwood, and Pro Glide for their support in 2021.

Walter takes on All Stars at hometown track

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 9, 2021 – Plymouth driver Josh Walter took on the challenge of competing in against many of the top Winged Sprint Car drivers in the nation in a FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobil 1 and Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series event at the Torque Racing team’s home track – The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, June 5.

After turning in a strong, career-best fourth-place IRA showing in the team’s most recent outing at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on May 22, Walter and his Torque Racing crew were hoping to ride that momentum against a top-notch field of competitors on a very familiar track.

However, Walter and the team were unable to get a good handle on the car and found themselves faced with an uphill battle throughout the night.

With a capacity crowd on hand, Walter opened the night by turned the 33rd fastest lap in qualifying out of the 36 cars on hand with a time of 12.380 seconds on the third-mile clay oval.

The All Stars group qualifying format, placed Walter in the seventh starting spot in the second heat race. Walter held down the seventh spot throughout the race to move on to the B main.

The 17th-year Sprint Car driver started ninth in the 12-lap B main needing to finish in the top four to move on to the 30-lap All Star-IRA headliner.

After a two-car incident on the initial start involving Sean Rayhall and Danny Schlafer, Walter lined up seventh on the drop of the green flag.

Walter dropped back to 10th on lap 2 before rebounding to work underneath Brian Kristan along the low groove on lap 3 to take ninth. On lap 7, Walter moved in to challenge Blake Nimee on the inside line before seizing eighth in turn two on lap 8. Walter went on to finish eighth to conclude his evening.

“We struggled with the car and found the issue a little too late,” Walter said. “It’s time for us to regroup and get back on track.”

After taking the upcoming weekend off, Josh Walter and the Torque Racing team will return to action against the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series for the annual $10,000-to-win Jim “JB” Boyd Memorial at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Saturday, June 19.

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

Mini Sprints and Legends will also be on the card.

Liggett Eyes Return to Keller Auto Speedway In Hanford, CA Following Late Midget Roll Over in Ventura, CA

PETERSEN MEDIA: Looking like he was well on his way to another top finish with the USAC Western States Midget Series, a late mistake would result in a roll over for series points leader, Austin Liggett on Saturday night at Ventura Raceway.

“We had a really good car, and we were well on our way to a third-place finish,” Austin Liggett said. “Unfortunately, the car stepped out on me on the last lap and I over corrected and it got me upside down.”

Taking to the tiny confines of the Ventura Raceway in Ventura, CA, Liggett would get his Excel Environmental Services/Liggett Trucking/Tool Technology backed No. 83 machine timed in fastest overall in qualifying time trials.

Moving into heat race action, passing would prove to be extremely difficult as Liggett would get going. Finishing back in the seventh position, the Tracy, CA driver would grid the field from the eighth starting position for the 30-lap feature event.

With the track taking more of a racing shape for the feature, Liggett would make some nice moves on the bullring as he carved his way forward with precision. Working all the way up to third, Liggett looked to be well on his way to another podium finish with the series.

Taking the white flag, Liggett’s entry would get out of shape on him on the final circuit and as he tried to get things back under control, it would ultimately result in Liggett getting his machine upside down.

“I absolutely hate it for my guys,” Liggett said. “We had a really good car in the feature, and these guys deserved a podium run. I really have to thank my Mom and Dad, as well as Matt, Landon, and Angela for all of their help.”

Looking forward, Liggett now eyes a return trip to Hanford, CA in Non-Winged 360ci action this weekend. Following his wild ride at the track a few weeks back, Liggett looks forward for a chance at redemption on the 3/8 mile located on the Kings County Fairgrounds.

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-11, Wins-1, Top 5’s-7, Top 10’s-8

ON TAP: Liggett will be back in action on Saturday night in Hanford, CA.

Paul Nienhiser Picks Up MOWA Win at Jacksonville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: With a non-wing victory already to his credit at the Jacksonville Speedway, Paul Nienhiser was back at his home track with MOWA on Sunday night and had a very strong showing as he was dominant en route to his third win of the season.

“It has been a struggle each time we have brought the family-owned No. 9x out this far in 2021, but I have to thank my KO Motorsports team for really going over everything and getting us headed in the right direction on Sunday night,” Paul Nienhiser said.

Feeling a little better than he had up to date in hot laps, Nienhiser and company would go to work on the CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil/Mason Sound/Innovative Design backed machine before heat race action.

Lining up in the second row of his heat, Nienhiser would work his way forward and pick up a second-place finish. Feeling much better, the team continued to dial in the PNR entry, and as luck would have it, Nienhiser would pull the one pill in the feature event redraw.

Lining up on the pole of the feature event, Nienhiser would not be denied on this night. Getting his right rear up on the famed Jacksonville Speedway cushion, Nienhiser would quickly establish himself as the dominant car in the feature.

Continuing to open his lead up lap after lap, Nienhiser would pick up the win convincingly as he would have over a straightway advantage over second place when the checkered flag flew.

“It is always great to get a win at home, and again I really want to thank Rooster and everyone with KO Motorsports for really helping us get this car figured out,” Nienhiser said.

Nienhiser was also in action with MOWA on Friday night as he returned to the Scott Bonar machine one week after picking up a win with the Sprint Invaders. Unfortunately, at the end of hot laps, the team would lose an engine and be forced to scratch the rest of the night.

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil, Roadworks, Peterbilt, Mason Sound, Innovative Design, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Wessler Bros. Agency, Bob Hawks Auto Body, Fierce Herbicide, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Kaeding Performance, Smith Titanium Products, Vortex Wings, Signature Signs and Design, and Team Simpson for their continued support.

2021 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-23, Wins-3, Top 5’s-5, Top 10’s-9

ON TAP: Nienhiser and the KO Motorsports team will be in action at Circle City Raceway in Indianapolis, IN on Wednesday night, before returning home to run the PNR entry at Jacksonville Speedway on Friday night.

Skinner Ends Four-Year Drought With Victory at Legit Speedway Park

Inside Line Promotions - WEST PLAINS, Mo. (June 9, 2021) - Marshall Skinner grabbed the lead from Derek Hagar following an early restart and then held off Howard Moore in traffic to earn his first feature win in four years last Saturday at Legit Speedway Park.

"I really needed this," Skinner said. "I've been so close so many times. It seems like I've finished second a million times since my last win, even though I really haven't raced as much the last few years as I used to.

"I was starting to wonder a bit if I'd win another race. I knew I had the ability, but I didn't know if the stars would align for it to happen. It seems like something would always happen when I was in a position to win."

Skinner charged from fifth to win his ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Warrior Region heat race and claim high-point honors going into the feature redraw. He drew the third starting position while Derek Hagar started second.

"Derek took the lead at the start and I moved into second," Skinner said. "I was running him down when the yellow came out after eight laps. I got a really good run on the bottom off of turn two on the restart - it was like getting shot out of a slingshot - and passed him for the lead.

"I was expecting the worst since that seems to usually happen when I'm racing for the win anymore. I got caught behind two slower cars racing side by side in the final laps and Howard Moore got right behind me. He was on my bumper at the checkered."

The win provided a special family moment for Skinner as well.

"The best part of the night was that my family was there," he said. "My twin boys are 8-years-old so they don't remember the last time I won. They've seen my trophy room so they know I won a lot of races before, but most of those were before they were born.

"I also dedicated the win to my dad. He's in the hospital and just had his second leg amputated due to diabetes. He's always been there for my racing except for the last couple of years due to his health."

Skinner expects the win to provide momentum going forward in the racing season.

"This really makes a difference going forward," he said. "You get in kind of a tough spot, mentally, after winning a lot of races and then going through a long dry spell. It wears on you a bit. But the competition around here is so strong now. There are usually eight to 10 drivers who can win on a given night."

Although he sits third in USCS Series Speedweek standings, Skinner will forego the remaining rescheduled races this week to compete in a previously scheduled event.

"I plan to race Friday at Crowley's Ridge," he said. "They're having an event called Fenderless Friday with three classes of sprint cars plus midgets. I'll be driving my 360 car and my uncle's 305. If everything goes okay, I'll drive his car on Saturday at Riverside."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 5 - Legit Speedway Park in West Plains, Mo. - Heat race: 1 (5); Feature: 1 (3).

10 races, 1 win, 5 top fives, 7 top 10s, 9 top 15s, 9 top 20s

Dominic Scelzi Solid During Debut in Dobmeier No. 13 Sprint Car

Inside Line Promotions - SAUK RAPIDS, Minn. (June 9, 2021) - Dominic Scelzi enjoyed a fast race car last weekend when he made his debut of driving for Mark Dobmeier.

Scelzi kicked off a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader on Friday at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D., during the Gerdau Presents the 1st Leg of the Northern Tour.

"We qualified 11th the first night," he said. "It was the first time we got to hit the track at speed with hot laps being greasy. I felt good in the car and we knew what to do to make it better. Then we got rained out, which was a bummer."

Scelzi ventured to Granite City Motor Park in Sauk Rapids, Minn., on Saturday for the GMC Select Dealers of Minnesota Presents the World of Outlaws. He qualified fourth quickest to begin his debut at the dirt track. That lined him up on the outside of the front row of a heat race.

"We were challenging for the lead and ended up taking the lead in the heat," he said. "All of a sudden we really, really fell off. We came in and found out the right rear bleeder wasn't turned on so that was an error on our part. It caused the right rear tire to grow substantially and we fell to fifth."

Scelzi advanced a position to finish fifth in the qualifier, which started him on the inside of the fifth row for the main event.

"We felt pretty good in the qualifier," he said. "Then in the feature I was running around eighth or ninth. We were right there running the top. When (Carson) Macedo and James (McFadden) got together I had nowhere to go. It was either smoke them or hit the wall and stop. I got into the fence and stopped. Luckily nothing was damaged and we restarted at the back. At that point it was hard to pass and we ended up 14th."

The mid-race incident hampered the finishing result for Scelzi, but he is excited to return to the Dobmeier No. 13 during a trio of races at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., June 20-22.

Up next is a weekend in his family owned car this Friday at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif., for the 35th annual Pombo/Sargent Classic and Saturday at Placerville Speedway in Placerville, Calif., for the 30th annual Dave Bradway Jr. Race with the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series. Scelzi enters the weekend leading the championship standings.

"We won the last Pombo/Sargent Classic in the Roth car and we were running third when we broke at the last Dave Bradway Jr race so we've run well at both events," he said. "We want to win the points championship, but we're trying to win races. If we do that the points deal will take care of itself."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 5 - Granite City Motor Park in Sauk Rapids, Minn. - Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 5 (2); Qualifier: 5 (6); Feature: 14 (9).

SEASON STATS -

25 races, 9 wins, 19 top fives, 23 top 10s, 24 top 15s, 24 top 20s

Wilson Amped for Upcoming All Stars' Ohio Sprint Speedweek

Inside Line Promotions - PLYMOUTH, Wis. (June 9, 2021) - Greg Wilson is putting his best foot forward this week when his Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics backed team tackles the 39th annual Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires.

"This week and the Kings Royal are my two favorite weeks of the year," he said. "Also, it's cool to have Hercules Tires as the presenting sponsor of Speedweek. It's been neat to see their involvement in the sport grow as they have been a great partner of our race team for several years."

Wilson will debut a new car during Ohio Sprint Speedweek, which begins on Friday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio. The remaining races are Saturday at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio; Monday at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio; June 15 at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio; June 16 at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio; June 17 at Muskingum County Speedway in Dresden, Ohio; June 18 at Limaland Motorsports Park in Lima, Ohio; and June 19 at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio.

"A whole bunch of it is preparation," he said. "The year that we won Speedweek in 2015 we were prepared, but things went our way, too. You have to put yourself in position to be decent every night and finish races. You hope the racing gods are on your side and you have some luck, too. It takes a little of everything to have success.

"Every night is its own battle. It's highly competitive like all racing is right now. You'll have a lot of outsiders. The key is to hopefully make the A Main every night and let the rest of it play out. If you can string some top-10 runs together the rest of it takes care of itself. You can't get caught up in we're going here and then going there. The first thought is tonight we need to time in well and then we think about making it out of our heat race."

Wilson raced three times with the All Stars last weekend, posting a result of 15th on Thursday at Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Ill., before a crash ended his night early on Friday at Wilmot Raceway. Wilson drove for Alan Gilbertson on Saturday at Plymouth Dirt Track, where he overcame a DNF in a heat race to advance from 14th to third in the B Main and from 23rd to 19th in the A Main.

"I really appreciate Alan and his family for allowing me to run his car Saturday night," he said. "They've become pretty good friends of ours. It was neat to get in something different to see if what I have been thinking all along about race cars is right or wrong. We had a pretty fast race car and it taught me a lot. We had a lot of fun and I think it helped both of us."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 3 - Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Ill. - Qualifying: 19; Heat race: 5 (5); Feature: 15 (19).

Henderson and Sandvig Score Another Top Five at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 9, 2021) - Justin Henderson produced a fifth-place finish behind the wheel of the Mike Sandvig Racing No. 7 at Huset's Speedway on Sunday.

The top-five outing followed up a 14th-place result at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday.

"It was one of those weekends where we would have liked to have had better results, but it really wasn't that bad either," Henderson said. "Sometimes you can be your own worst enemy in this sport and I think we just overcomplicated things for ourselves this weekend and the results showed."

Henderson kicked off the action at Knoxville Raceway by qualifying 15 th quickest out of 29 drivers with a lap of 16.410 seconds. He then finished where he started - second - in a heat race to earn the 11 th starting spot for the feature event.

Henderson struggled on the initial start and dropped back a few positions as he found himself in 14th early in the race. With the feature event going caution-free and the field getting stretched out, Henderson wasn't able to mount a comeback and he settled for the 14th -place finish. He remains second in the track's championship standings.

"We brought the car back that we crashed at Huset's last week and it took us all night to try and find the base we needed to be at," he said. "We made a bunch of changes and it seems like we just never quite got it dialed in. We fell backwards and honestly we just were not very good all night."

The following night the team headed to Huset's Speedway for I-29 RV SuperCenter Night. Henderson qualified eighth quickest out of 19 drivers with a lap of 11.126 seconds. He then finished third in a heat race to garner the 10th starting spot for the feature.

Henderson was on the move early and steadily made his way into the top five. His drive forward stalled there as he suffered a broken right rear shock and nursed the car home for a fifth-place result at the completion of the 25 laps. The top-five finish allowed him to gain points in the championship standings. Henderson currently sits third and now trails first by a mere nine markers.

"We were really quick early in hot laps and we made a few gear changes and I think we just went a little too far with the gear in time trials," he said. "We were really good in the feature. We were just kind of picking our way to the front and then the car just kind of seemed to lose handling. It turns out that we had a broken right rear shock most of the night and we just never could really tell. When the shock was cold and in the pits, the problem wouldn't show itself. However, when we got going on the track and it heated up is when it would really be an issue. I'm just glad we found it now and that way we're not beating our heads later trying to figure it out."

Henderson and Sandvig will race three times this weekend. They'll join the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Friday and Saturday at Knoxville Raceway for the Brownells Big Guns Bash before competing in a Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association event at Huset's Speedway on Sunday.

"We know what we are up against with the Outlaws coming into town and the goal is to just try to put together a couple of mistake-free nights and leave with a few good finishes," Henderson said. "We know we have equipment capable of contending and it's up to us to not screw it up. I'm looking forward to the weekend."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 5 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 15; Heat race: 2 (2); Feature: 14 (11).

Hot and hectic Sprint Car Challenge Tour championship battle resumes at Placerville Speedway Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…The “Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial” is one of the biggest single night shows of the season in Nor*Cal and the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards is thrilled to be part of the action for the first time this Saturday.

This much-anticipated contest at Placerville Speedway will see the SCCT 360s compete alongside the King of the West-NARC 410 Sprint Car Series, which means the best of the best in California Winged Sprint Car racing is sure to be on hand.

The event had been held at Silver Dollar Speedway since 1992 to honor the late Dave Bradway Jr., who lost his life in a Sprint Car crash at Skagit Speedway’s Dirt Cup in 1987. Bradway was a driver destined for stardom in Sprint Car racing and the event held in his memory has become a cornerstone for Northern California.

The Sprint Car Challenge Tour feature will hand out a minimum of $3,000-to-win thanks to extra money from the Bradway Family, F&F Racing, CRV Carbon Solutions and Debbie Colton Walsh in memory of John Wallace. Full-time SCCT cars will also be vying for $3,500-to-win, with the Kyle Larson Racing Bonus in play.

Bushey Financial Services has added in an extra $300 to fast time, $100 to the heat race winners and $300 to third in the main event. Hoosier Tire West has offered up a right rear tire to the toughest break award and Stice Motorsports has donated $100 to seventh place in the B-main.

Going into Placerville on Saturday the top-six in the SCCT standings are separated by just 22-points. Redding’s Chase Majdic continues to lead the way but has seen his advantage dwindle to four-markers over Clarksburg’s Justyn Cox, who won recently at the Pville bullring. Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick and Foresthill’s Ryan Robinson, both winners so far this season at the track, are tied for third and only 12-points back of the top-spot.

Roseville’s Colby Copeland has been a constant sight at the front of the field in Placerville the last year and goes into the Bradway 14-markers back in fifth, while Sean Becker has creeped into the picture, sitting 22-points behind Majdic in sixth. Last Saturday’s winner in Placerville, Blake Carrick, young Isaiah Vasquez, most recent SCCT winner in Marysville Andy Forsberg and 15-year-old Max Mittry round out the top-10.

Additional possibilities to tackle the Sprint Car Challenge Tour portion of the night will include Tarter Memorial winner Justin Sanders, along with reigning “Nor*Cal Posse Shootout” winner Shane Golobic, Kalib Henry, Michael Faccinto, Jodie Robinson, Kaleb Montgomery, Andy Gregg, Justin Bradway, Joey Ancona, Shane Hopkins, Bubba Decaires, Landon Brooks and more.

Adult tickets this Saturday June 12th cost $40 while juniors 12-17, military and seniors 62+ are $35. Kids 6-11 are $20 and those five and under are free. The front gate will open at 3pm with the pit meeting at approximately 4:30. Wheel packing, hot laps and Bianchi Farms qualifying will follow.

THE “MADMAN” ROBERT BALLOU EYES $6,000 THUNDER ON THE HILL VICTORY. . . . .. . .

USAC NON-WING SPRINTS JESSE HOCKETT CLASSIC & MODIFIEDS MAKE UP DOUBLEHEADER AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY TUESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 15

BECHTELSVILLE, PA June 8, 2021 . . . . . . Where’s the Madman ? In the circles of the AMSOIL USAC Non-Wing National Sprint Car Series can you only be talking about Rocklin, CA driver Robert Ballou.

No one will challenge that he earned that nickname for his hard charging and relentless on track driving style, and it did it very early in his racing career. And with the start of every USAC event, he lives up to that name. Where there’s a will, there’s a way and the Madman can/will make it happen. Ballou is one of about thirty non-wing national sprint car stars that will be heading to the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, June 15 when the Eastern Storm invades Pennsylvania for the $6,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic. This NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event will offer a spectacular doubleheader with the Modifieds sharing the card with qualifying and a $3,000 to win 30 lap feature. Gates open at 5 and race time is set for 7:30 PM.

The “Madman” is out to shuffle the deck so to speak and mix it up so expect plenty of side-by-side action, some slide jobs and you just can’t help but to have some old fashion wheel-banging. In the April Grandview USAC show, Ballou started the feature deep in the pack. The second half of the race, the clocks showed Ballou as the fastest car on the Grandview Speedway high banked one third mile oval. Ballou rallied home with a third place finish. On June 15, the “Madman” is going all out for the win. To do that, he will have to stop Broken Arrow, AZ driver Brady Bacon, winner of the last four Thunder on the Hill USAC events.

“My confidence is up for this show on the hill as I got a handle on the track after that last show, I think we have it figured out”, said Ballou. “Maybe I did some dumb things before, but I have my qualifying program down better and the car is just comfortable for me”. Ballou continued, “I need to qualify better and put myself in a position to win, early in the race”.

And what about Grandview Speedway? “I love the place and its’ unique characteristics like the tight turns in one and two with three and four corners a little more sweeping”. Ballou added, “I have to stay out of the fence keeping it between the inside guardrail and that outside wall”. Grandview Speedway is one of Ballou’s favorite tracks and he feels he has the goods to stop the Brady Bacon domination at Grandview.

The USAC non-wing racers really do spice up the on track action. The wheel-to-wheel racing can sometimes be viewed as a contact sport! These drivers are very respectful with each other but they won’t give an inch. Often, it takes a slide job to make a pass! If you’ve never seen a USAC Non-Wing National Tour event, plan to be at Grandview Speedway Tuesday night, June 15. In addition to Ballou and Bacon, expect Kevin Thomas, Jr., Tanner Thorson, Logan Seavey in the Baldwin #5, Jake Swanson, CJ Leary and local drivers Briggs Danner, Tim Buckwalter, Alex Bright and Steven Drevicki. Anyone of these locals could pull off the upset to win a national tour event.

The 358 Modifieds will share the spotlight with qualifying events leading up to a 30 lap feature paying $3,000 to the winner. Likely contenders for the event include red hot Brett Kressley, Craig VonDohren, Duane Howard, Jeff Strunk, Rick Laubach, Danny Bouc, Ryan Godown and Jared Umbenhauer just to name a few.

Advance tickets are available by calling 443 513 4456. Please speak clearly and provide your first and last name and the number of tickets you need. Tickets may be paid for and picked up at the WILL CALL window on race night. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM. Advance tickets orders can be processed up to the day before the race. We apologize, but advance tickets will NOT be available on race day.

We ask that you bring exact change when purchasing your advance tickets, general admission tickets and Pit Passes. Adult admission tickets are $30, children 6 to 11 are $10 and children 5 and under will be admitted free. The Pit fee is $40 and a license is not required.

Continued support of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series is provided by NAPA Auto Parts, Levan Machine & Truck Equipment in Fleetwood, PA and Pioneer Pole Buildings. All three sponsors play a key role is the on-going success of the Thunder Series.

Kalib Henry Charges to Second Place Finish as McColloch Motorsports Returns to Racing Action

PETERSEN MEDIA: With motor issues sidelining McColloch Motorsports for the month of May, the team was back in action with Kalib Henry on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway where Henry would put on a show and charge from 11th to a second-place finish.

“’It was awesome to get the motor back and get back to racing with McColloch Motorsports,” Kalib Henry said. “We tried some different stuff to start the night, and we had speed, we were just lacking a little, but we kept tweaking on it.”

With 31 cars checked in for a night of racing, Henry would go out 29th for time trials and still manage to rip off the seventh fastest lap of the night aboard the McColloch’s RV Repair/Express Sewer and Drain/Davis Truck Painting backed entry.

Lining up third in his heat race, the Mather, CA driver would pick up a second-place finish and firmly put himself in the 25-lap feature event where he would roll off the starting grid from the 11th position.

Making a few minor adjustments prior to the feature event, Henry would be able to put his machine anywhere he needed as he worked his way forward on the famed bullring.

Amidst a torrid battle with Tanner Carrick position inside the Top-Five, the duo would exchange positions on each end of the track for a handful of laps before the caution flew on lap 13.

Back underway, Henry would jump into the fourth position as he chased after the likes of Kyle Offill and Joel Myers.

Able to get into the third position, Henry would make a last lap pass to secure the second position coming to the checkered flag.

“Big thanks to Nick, Kerry, and my Dad for all of their hard work,” Henry said. “I am really excited to get back up the hill this weekend for the ‘Bradway’.”

McColloch Motorsports would like to thank McColloch’s RV Repair, Express Sewer and Drain, Davis Truck Painting, Driven Homes, Inc., ART Speed Equipment, RE Technologies, Hansen Machine, ADCO Driveline, and Gary Morgan Graphics for their continued support.

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

ON TAP: McColloch Motorsports and Henry get right back to racing action this weekend in Placerville, CA.

 

 

Gregg Garners Top-10 at Placerville Speedway’s Kings Meats Night

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, Andy Gregg would combat a tough qualifying effort and ultimately end his night with a ninth-place finish.

“Qualifying was a bit of a struggle, but we really bounced back and raced well,” Andy Gregg said. “We ended with a Top-10 and we are just fine with that in the scheme of things.”

Timing in 17th fastest amongst the field of 31 checked in on Saturday night, Gregg would just narrowly miss the heat race inversion and find himself in a bit of a hole for the rest of the night.

Lining up fifth in his heat race, the Diamond Springs, CA driver would jump into the second position and put the pressure on for the top spot. If he could of inched his way forward to the lead, he would have made the redraw and really overcame the early hole. As the race played out however, Gregg would finish second and find himself in the 16th starting position in the feature.

Keeping a watchful eye on the surface as the other divisions ran their races, Gregg felt good with their game plan heading into the 25-lap finale. From the 16th starting position, Gregg was able to make some headway as he worked his way towards the Top-10.

Getting into the Top-10, Gregg would continue to search for more, as he would cap his night off with a 9th place finish.

“Big thanks to my guys for their hard work,” Gregg said. “Work is busy, family stuff is getting busy in the Summer months, and they do a great job and really make this possible.”

Andy would like to thank GUTS, LAL Motorsports, Crane Inspection Agency, Meyers and Son Drywall, Nail it Roofing, CTL Forest Management, ARP Enterprises, Ervin Sales, Aaron Dosh Attorney at Law, Ice House Resort, Classic Fence Co., Triple X, Wilwood, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, K&N, King Racing Products, BR Motorsports, Amerikote, Pony Express Service, Eagle Grit, Sierra Ice, Ford’s Only, MF Inc., and Gilly’s Radiator for their support.

Reutzel Fourth with World of Outlaws at Granite City Speedway as Series Heads to Knoxville Raceway

PETERSEN MEDIA- With rain shortening the weekend of racing action for Aaron Reutzel and Roth Motorsports, the Clute, TX native would make the most of the Saturday night show at Granite City as he recorded a fourth-place finish and ended a streak of bad luck with the ‘Greatest Show on Dirt’.

“It felt good to be back up-front leading laps, but unfortunately we came up short,” Aaron Reutzel said. “That one restart shuffled us a bit, but it is good to get back in the Top-Five and we will look to keep it rolling as we head to Knoxville this weekend.”

Getting the night underway by timing the Roth Enterprises/Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co./HR Livestock Transportation backed mount in 10th fastest in time trials, Reutzel would have a strong showing in his heat race.

Working his way up to finish in the second position, Reutzel would make his way into the Dash where a second-place finish there put him on the front row of the feature event alongside Donny Schatz.

When the green flag flew on the feature, it was Schatz getting the jump, but Reutzel would get moving and lead the first lap officially. Out front, Reutzel would begin to pull away from the field as he looked very strong out front.

Reutzel’s lead would evaporate, however, as the race’s lone caution flag flew on the 14th lap.

Back underway, Reutzel would fall to second as David Gravel got by him and then to third as Sheldon Haudenschild nailed his restart and actually powered his way to the race lead.

Battling with Schatz for position, Reutzel would ultimately slip back to fourth where he would go on to finish.

“Big thanks to Dennis and Teresa Roth for continuing to support us even as we went through a tough patch the last couple of weeks,” Reutzel said. “We felt good at Knoxville a couple of weeks ago, and we are looking forward to a couple nights back there this weekend.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co., HR Livestock Transportation, Roth Investments, Southern Pacific Farms, All Star Performance, FK Rod Ends, Vahlco Wheels, Triple X Race Co., AL Drive Lines, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Wings Unlimited, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, Smith Titanium, and Team Simpson for their support in 2021.

ON TAP: Reutzel and Roth Motorsports will be at Knoxville Raceway this Friday and Saturday night.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-38, Wins-3, Top-5’s-13, Top-10’s-28

Paul Nienhiser Picks Up MOWA Win at Jacksonville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: With a non-wing victory already to his credit at the Jacksonville Speedway, Paul Nienhiser was back at his home track with MOWA on Sunday night and had a very strong showing as he was dominant en route to his third win of the season.

“It has been a struggle each time we have brought the family-owned No. 9x out this far in 2021, but I have to thank my KO Motorsports team for really going over everything and getting us headed in the right direction on Sunday night,” Paul Nienhiser said.

Feeling a little better than he had up to date in hot laps, Nienhiser and company would go to work on the CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil/Mason Sound/Innovative Design backed machine before heat race action.

Lining up in the second row of his heat, Nienhiser would work his way forward and pick up a second-place finish. Feeling much better, the team continued to dial in the PNR entry, and as luck would have it, Nienhiser would pull the one pill in the feature event redraw.

Lining up on the pole of the feature event, Nienhiser would not be denied on this night. Getting his right rear up on the famed Jacksonville Speedway cushion, Nienhiser would quickly establish himself as the dominant car in the feature.

Continuing to open his lead up lap after lap, Nienhiser would pick up the win convincingly as he would have over a straightway advantage over second place when the checkered flag flew.

“It is always great to get a win at home, and again I really want to thank Rooster and everyone with KO Motorsports for really helping us get this car figured out,” Nienhiser said.

Nienhiser was also in action with MOWA on Friday night as he returned to the Scott Bonar machine one week after picking up a win with the Sprint Invaders. Unfortunately, at the end of hot laps, the team would lose an engine and be forced to scratch the rest of the night.

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil, Roadworks, Peterbilt, Mason Sound, Innovative Design, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Wessler Bros. Agency, Bob Hawks Auto Body, Fierce Herbicide, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Kaeding Performance, Smith Titanium Products, Vortex Wings, Signature Signs and Design, and Team Simpson for their continued support.

2021 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-23, Wins-3, Top 5’s-5, Top 10’s-9

ON TAP: Nienhiser and the KO Motorsports team will be in action at Circle City Raceway in Indianapolis, IN on Wednesday night, before returning home to run the PNR entry at Jacksonville Speedway on Friday night.

Airport Raceway Welcomes TBJ Promotions' Midget Round Up June 18-19

Inside Line Promotions - OWASSO, Okla. (June 8, 2021) - The Midget Round Up presented by the Finney County Convention and Visitors Bureau will make its second attempt at the sixth edition of the TBJ Promotions event on June 18-19.

Inclement weather forced the postponement of the event at Airport Raceway in Garden City, Kan., last month. Fortunately, everything is looking up for the doubleheader in the middle of this month.

The Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association sanctions the midget competition and the NOW600 Series Winged 'A' Class and Restricted 'A' Class divisions will race both nights as well.

Setters Scores Second-Place Result During Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series Race

Inside Line Promotions - GREAT FALLS, Mont. (June 8, 2021) - James Setters posted his third podium finish of the season last Saturday during Round 3 of the Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series season at Electric City Speedway.

Setters guided the Mike Quigley owned No. 2 to a runner-up result, which snapped his two-race winning streak that started the season. That served to fire up Setters, whose next race with the series is July 3.

"I can't wait to come back the next race and hopefully win," he said.

Setters started Saturday night by winning a heat race from the pole. He remains undefeated with three heat race wins in three starts this season. The feature redraw originally lined Setters up on the inside of the second row for the 20-lap A Main.

"The guy on the pole spun before we completed a lap so that moved me up to the pole," he said. "I was leading most of the race. Kory (Wermling) was right behind me the whole time. I got caught up in some traffic with two laps to go."

A dicey moment in traffic dropped Setters to second in the closing laps.

"The racing groove was on the top all the way around," he said. "In turns one and two the top was decent, but the bottom was definitely the preferred line. I entered in on the top and the lapped car moved up. I tried to cut down, but Kory got underneath me on the bottom."

The second-place showing was only the third time Setters hasn't won a Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series race in his last 14 races during the last three years.

June 5 - Electric City Speedway in Great Falls, Mont. - Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 2 (3).

Amantea Shows Resolve With USAC East Coast Sprint Cars in a Pair of First-Time Visits

Inside Line Promotions - ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (June 8, 2021) - Joey Amantea picked up one of his best finishes of the season with the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars last Saturday night when he finished eighth at Lincoln Speedway.

The top-10 effort followed up a 13th-place finish on Friday night with the series at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. He also charged from 26th to 14th in a wingless micro sprint race on Wednesday at Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa.

"Overall, it was a pretty good week and we learned some things that will help us going forward," he said. "We ran into a lot of things that we had to overcome and we stepped up to the plate each time and made it happen. That's the mark of a good team and gives me confidence going forward."

Amantea kicked off the three-race week on Wednesday at Action Track USA. An accident in a heat race relegated him to the B Main, in which Amantea charged from 15th to finish just short of transferring to the A Main in sixth. Courtesy of a track provisional, he lined up 26th for the feature and advanced a dozen positions to finish 14th for his 11th top-15 run of the season.

"It was an interesting night to begin with as my dad was feeling under the weather and it was the first time I've ever went to the track by myself," he said. "We had some issues early on and ultimately needed a provisional to get into the show, but we passed a lot of cars to salvage a decent night in the feature."

Amantea then shifted focus to the wingless 360 sprint car division on Friday when he made his first career start at the famed Williams Grove Speedway. He finished seventh in a heat race as a result of a wreck and lined up 19th for the feature. A wreck on Lap 1 sent him to the tail of the field and he advanced six positions to finish 13th. The six positions gained was tied with two other drivers for the most in the field of 21 drivers.

"To finally get to race at Williams Grove was a cool deal in itself and we were pretty quick in hot laps," he said. "We seemed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time early in the night, but for being a new track and us still learning, to move forward six positions was a good night."

Amantea closed out the weekend on Saturday with another first-time visit to Lincoln Speedway. He began the night by finishing where he started - third - in a heat race before he garnered the pole position for the feature courtesy of a redraw. Hoping to capitalize on the fortunate luck of the draw, Amantea changed his setup for the feature. His decision proved wrong early in the race as he struggled with track conditions and fell back. However, after the halfway point the track came to his liking and he rallied to finish eighth.

The run was good enough to move him up two spots to eighth in the championship standings with the series. He only trails fifth by 46 markers.

"We had speed off the trailer and luckily we had a favorable draw that got us the pole in the feature," he said. "I was riding around inside the top five and decided to try something different to maybe make up some ground and we lost a bunch of positions. We rebounded for eighth, which gave us a good weekend in terms of points so I was happy."

Next up for Amantea will be a trio of wingless micro sprint races. On Wednesday and Sunday he'll run at Action Track USA while he'll head to Spirit Auto Center Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J., on Friday.

"We've been pretty snake bitten with the micro this season so I don't know that we can get much worse off in terms of luck," he said. "I'm looking forward to turning things around and hopefully we can come out with something to smile about."

June 2 - Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa. - Heat race: 4 (7); B Main: 6 (15); Feature: 14 (26).

Alex Pokorski equals career-best
PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main showing

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 8, 2021 – One week after qualifying for his first Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car A-main event of the 2021 season, second-year Pokorski Motorsports co-driver Alex Pokorski duplicated his career-best A-main showing with a 16th-place finish in the 25-lap headliner on Saturday, June 5 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

Pokorski, who was one of 32 PDTR 360 Sprint Car competitors to sign in for the event, which was run in support of the annual appearance of the national touring FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprint Car Series, started fifth in the fourth 10-lap PDTR 360 heat race.

On lap 3, Pokorski fell back to seventh before the yellow flag appeared on lap 5. After restarting seventh, Pokorski bolted up to the outside groove to power around Will Gerrits and Lance Fassbender in turn two to regain fifth in the running order.

The bold move helped Pokorski secure the fifth spot at the finish and a berth in the 25-lap A main for the second straight week and fifth time in his young career.

The West Bend driver rolled off sixth in the main event and worked the high and middle groove throughout the event, while engaging in a race-long duel with Lance Fassbender for 15th place.

On lap 6, Pokorski worked around Fassbender to take the 15th spot. However, Fassbender battled back to regain the spot on lap 16. Pokorski went on to finish an A-main career-best 16th in the caution-free race, which was won by Travis Arenz.

“A lot of the racing was on the bottom, so I was trying to make the middle work to pass people,” Pokorski said. “It was a fun night because the heat race went well and I got to do some close racing with the 7 car [Lance Fassbender] in the feature. Currently, I’m working on trying to be more consistent and make in-race adjustments, such as changing my line or wing position quicker to make the car faster.”

The Pokorski Motorsports team will return to The Plymouth Dirt Track .at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. with Alex Pokorski again slated to be behind the wheel this Saturday, June 12.

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

Price Building Toward Dirt Cup With Runner-Up Result at Skagit Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ALGER, Wash. (June 8, 2021) - Robbie Price matched his best finish of the 2021 season with a runner-up result at Skagit Speedway on Saturday night.

While he finished second earlier this season behind the wheel of Demo Mittry's No. 2x sprint car at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif., this was the best outing of the season for Price in his family owned No. 21p.

"It was a cool weekend and frustrating at the same time," he said. "Nobody likes to finish second, but to be able to park our own car up front and contend with the luck we've had was a nice feeling."

Price kicked off Saturday's program by laying down a qualifying lap of 11.568 seconds, which was good enough for second quickest among 15 drivers. He then advanced one position in a heat race to finish third before he garnered the third starting position for the feature courtesy of a redraw.

Price stayed consistently in third until Lap 20 when he moved into the runner-up position. With two laps remaining, Price had an opportunity on a restart to take the lead, but a bobble forced him to settle for second.

"The track was just really fast around the top and I was just kind of biding my time for lapped traffic," he said. "We got a red flag there that kind of messed up that plan, but we had a shot there at the end on a green-white-checkered finish and I thought we were going to get the win. I kind of gave it away and just didn't hit my marks. I guess we were just destined for second."

Next up for Price will a return to 360ci sprint car competition at Skagit Speedway this Saturday. This will be the fourth consecutive visit to the facility for Price as he is gearing up for the 49th annual Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup that will occur with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour June 24-26.

Price became the youngest winner in the history of the event in 2019 as he bested the ASCS National Tour regulars and local stars to claim the $15,000 top prize. With last year's event getting cancelled due to COVID-19, Price will enter the crown jewel event as the defending champion.

"I was the last person to win that race and I really want to be the next person to win it as well," he said. "We had planned to do a lot more racing, but I figure we just need to focus and get our ducks in a row and see if we can come out here in a couple of weeks and win again.

"We've had all sorts of gremlins this season with our program and there is no better time than now to kind of get those sorted out. I know I can race these cars and I know we have good equipment. I'm looking forward to putting everything together and it's only a matter of time before luck starts turning our way."

Rustad Optimistic Following Run at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 8, 2021) - Tony Rustad gained more experience and is optimistic about his season moving forward as a 410ci winged sprint car rookie following competition at Huset's Speedway Sunday night.

"I felt like we learned a lot Sunday night and we confirmed we have the speed," said Rustad, who timed in 12th quickest of 19 cars and made the inversion for the lineup of his heat race. "Time trials was a huge relief. It was the first time I've really had the car up to full speed.

"To qualify within a tenth of a second of drivers like the McCarls and Justin Henderson shows we have the speed. I know it's obvious that the track was 'wide-open and turn left.' The challenge will be driving it when it slicks off."

Rustad welcomed a veteran driver and car owner to his crew this week and credited him with making big improvements to his performance during his first night with the new team.

"Doug Martens joined our crew and he already made a big difference our first night," he said. "He gave me some great driving advice after hot laps that helped me do well in time trials. Doug has probably forgotten more about sprint car racing than I know. I'm looking forward to him helping us the rest of the year."

Rustad started on the pole of his heat race and finished sixth.

"It was a little intimidating starting on the front row next to Austin (McCarl) with Shane Golobic in the second row," he said. "But I just tried to focus on driving the track without regard to who I was racing with. I dropped back right away, but I started getting a little more comfortable toward the end. I had a fun race with Colin Smith in the final laps."

Rustad lined up 16th for the night's main event. His race ended early following his second unassisted caution. He was credited with an 18 th-place result.

"The feature actually went pretty good," he said. "I was feeling more comfortable as the race went on. I thought the track was great - near perfect - especially considering the hot and windy weather we had.

"I ran into trouble twice when I tried to enter turn one on the bottom. I didn't slow down enough both times and missed the bottom and spun. The second time I gassed the car to keep it going so I wouldn't cause a caution, but that shot me into the berm and tipped the car on its side, ending our night. I have to get better at that since I can't gain any experience when I'm sitting in the infield."

Rustad plans to return to Huset's Speedway this Sunday.

Ramey Records Season-Best Result at Legit Speedway Park

Inside Line Promotions - WEST PLAINS, Mo. (June 8, 2021) - Gunner Ramey made his first appearance of the season at Legit Speedway Park last Saturday night when he notched his season-best finish of seventh.

The Terry Doogs Racing driver faced off against ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Warrior Region competition, finishing fourth in his heat race after starting second.

"I kind of screwed up and got caught up swapping back and forth with the leader in the heat race, which allowed a couple guys to close the gap and get by me," he said.

Ramey lined up 14th out of the 20 entries in the night's feature. Passing was at a premium throughout the race, but Ramey found an edge at the halfway point to propel him forward.

"The track was smooth and slick all night, but I found if I put my left-side tires into nearly the infield on corner exit there was some moisture there and that helped me pass cars when it was so tough for all the other drivers to make moves out there," he said.

Ramey improved upon his starting spot by seven positions - the second most of any driver - to finish seventh.

"I just wish we could have started a little closer to the front because we had a top-five, a top-three car for sure," he said.

Ramey's confidence level is rising following Saturday's run.

"The speed is there, the car is there and the driver is getting better every week," he said. "If we can continue to put complete races together like this, the top fives and the podiums will come as a result."

Ramey will head to Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., this Saturday night. Four of his nine starts this season have been at the track with a best outing of eighth.

Dover Wins at I-80 Speedway to Highlight Strong Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 8, 2021) - Jack Dover produced his third feature victory of the season to go along with two top fives and three top 10s during a trio of races last weekend.

The action began on Friday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., where Dover guided his No. 53 sprint car from seventh to fourth place in a heat race.

"Lately we've been watching lap times and after hot laps we were one of the quickest cars," he said. "We knew we were pretty good right out of the box. We didn't change much come the heat races."

Dover lined up on the outside of the front row for the main event.

"The track slicked off and we worried it was going to take rubber," he said. "They went out and worked it. It ended up being a great track. It was up against the wall and I love it when it's like that. Our car was good enough in traffic we were able to maneuver."

Dover's win was his second of the season at the high-banked track.

He then tackled a Midwest Sprint Touring Series event at Off Road Speedway in Norfolk, Neb., on Saturday. Dover powered from fourth to win a heat race.

"We were the quickest car by three tenths in hot laps so we knew we were pretty close," he said. "In the heat race we got a great start. In the first corner we were able to get a little better bite than the leader. We slid him going into turn three and checked out.

"There in the feature we rode around in sixth for the first five to seven laps. Rubber started coming in and everybody moved to the bottom. I was there to capitalize when someone screwed up. It was a patience game. We picked them off one by one. A yellow came out with seven laps to go. When the race went green we were all over Jason Martin for the lead. We got beside him down the back straightaway and passed him going into turn three. I had to drive it in so hard and when I did that I got out of the rubber. He was able to get back underneath of us. We were able to get back down to be in second. Then with two laps to go we blew a right rear tire."

The late incident cost Dover at least a podium if not a shot at the win. He finished 10th.

The weekend wrapped up on Sunday at Huset's Speedway, where Dover drove the Rick and Chris Bowers' No. 81 for the fifth straight week.

"We were decent in hot laps," he said. "In time trials we were seventh, which put us starting on the front row outside of the first heat race. We had David Gravel, Carson McCarl and Matt Juhl in our heat. I knew I had to get a good start. We did and then we rode the top side the whole time."

Dover won his heat race for the first time at Huset's Speedway this season to advance into the feature redraw. He pulled the No. 4 to line up on the outside of the second row for the 25-lap main event.

"Come feature-time we weren't the best," he said. "We were decent, but I felt like we could make the car a little better. I fell to seventh at one point. We were able to get back up to fourth running the top side the whole time."

Dover's fourth-place result was his third top five of the season at Huset's Speedway. He continues to rank fifth in the championship standings.

Dover plans to race this Friday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., and Saturday at I-90 Speedway in Hartford, S.D., with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and Midwest Power Series as well as Sunday at Huset's Speedway.

Driever Entering ASCS Frontier Region Season Opener With Confidence

Inside Line Promotions - COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. (June 8, 2021) - Tyler Driever has momentum on his side as he enters an ASCS Frontier Region doubleheader this weekend.

Driever will make his debut at two Montana ovals - Friday at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade and Saturday at Big Sky Speedway in Billings - that make up the first two nights of the 17-race schedule.

"I'm pretty excited," he said. "I've never ran either track. It will be nice to run in Montana and Wyoming more. Everything we've raced has been pretty far west so it's cool that we're racing closer to my area.

"I want to get a podium finish or a win. Having a clear head with a positive mindset is key. Being confident is big in racing so having a confident attitude that we can win will help me be a better driver all around."

The 18-year-old Idaho native is coming off a fourth-place finish last Saturday at Cottage Grove Speedway. That tied his career-best outing in a 360ci winged sprint car.

"We struggled a little bit," he said. "The track was pretty slick to begin with early in the night. I wasn't very good in the heat race. The track rubbered down pretty good early on. It took me a while to find the rubber. Once I found it I did all right."

Driever qualified fourth quickest, placed fifth in a heat race and advanced from seventh to fourth place in the A Main for his second top five of the season.

Hagar Running Four Classes Friday at Crowley's Ridge and Midget Saturday at Riverside

Inside Line Promotions - WEST PLAINS, Mo. (June 8, 2021) - Derek Hagar will be a busy man this Friday when he competes in four divisions at Crowley's Ridge Raceway.

Hagar plans to pilot his 360ci winged sprint car, 410ci non-wing sprint car and midget along with a 305ci winged sprint car owned by Todd Bradford during the event at the dirt oval in Paragould, Ark.

Hagar is helping promote the midget event that night along with the ensuing evening at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark.

"It's fun," he said. "I'm able to race in front of people in a different car. I think it gives me excitement to be able to jump into something like that and be competitive for the fans."

Hagar will drive one of three Hagar Proctor Racing midgets both nights. He swept the doubleheader weekend last season.

"We're trying to grow midget racing around here and give fans something more to watch," he said. "Promoting is stressful trying to get everyone together to have a good car count and put on a good show. We're throwing in an incentive for D2 cars. It looks like we'll get some lap money, too. We're trying to make sure it works for everybody."

Hagar competed last Saturday at Legit Speedway Park, where he rallied from seventh to third place in an ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Warrior Region heat race. That earned a spot into the feature redraw and Hagar pulled the No. 2 to line up on the outside of the front row.

"We took the lead and had a caution on Lap 8," he said. "My left rear tire went down. On the restart it allowed Marshall (Skinner) to get by me. Three or four laps later it blew out. We had to change the tire and we came from 20th back up to ninth. We had a winning car. We broke out a different car and everything went well up until that blown tire. If I couldn't get the win I was happy Marshall was able to capitalize."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 5 - Legit Speedway Park in West Plains, Mo. - Heat race: 3 (7); Feature: 9 (2)

11 races, 1 win, 3 top fives, 9 top 10s, 9 top 15s, 11 top 20s

Brian Brown Posts Podium at Knoxville as World of Outlaws Weekend Nears

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 8, 2021) - Brian Brown heads into the Brownells Big Guns Bash on the heels of his fifth podium finish of the season at Knoxville Raceway last Saturday.

Brown earned a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series win at Knoxville Raceway on June 14, 2019, and is looking to duplicate his success this weekend.

June 5 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 1 (6); Feature: 3 (3).

"It started off during the day with the National Hall of Fame induction ceremony," Brown said. "One of our own, Don Lamberti, who is the founder of Casey's and a huge supporter of our team, was inducted. We were excited to be there for him. It was an awesome class and everybody was very deserving. I was lucky to be able to race with Jeff Swindell, Greg Hodnett and Tim Shaffer.

"At the track we started off the night second quick. We started sixth in our heat and won it. We tried something in the feature we hadn't really tried before that we wanted to try. It wasn't as good as our core package. We have that out of the way and off the table."

UP NEXT - Friday and Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, for the Brownells Big Guns Bash with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series

"We're looking forward to getting qualified well and hopefully that can set us up for two successful nights," Brown said. "We're definitely where we need to be. At the end of last year after The One and Only event we sat down and said we're not good enough to beat those guys consistently. What do we need to change on the cars to make the better? I feel like we've made them better. Every single night we've tried some things. Some things have worked and some things haven't.

"I feel like we're done testing at this point. We've done that up to this point. Every time we've hit the track it's been with some things different to learn as much as we could. Now you have to settle in on a core package and try to make that work, tinkering with that core package rather than making wholesale changes."

Cox, James, Osborne, R. Bloom, And Drake Win Cottage Grove Speedway’s Kids Night Mains

By Stephanie Deatherage

Cottage Grove, Oregon- Saturday, June 5th, had an excellent turnout for Kids Night at Cottage Grove Speedway. In addition, a massive bike giveaway took place at intermission, where one-hundred bicycles were raffled off to some lucky children courtesy of several race teams and businesses in the community.

Five classes were in action, including three a part of the Speedway Motors IMCA Weekly Racing program. They included 360 Sprints, IMCA Modifieds, Street Stocks, Royalty Core IMCA Northern Sport Mods, and IMCA Sport Compacts.

The 360 Sprints were back in action for the first race since May 15th. Tyler Thompson, from Harrisburg, took complete control over the rest of the field on the opening start. Thompson reigned supreme in the thirty-lap feature with lapped traffic not being an issue whatsoever.

Unfortunately, mechanical problems would put an early end to his evening when he came to a halt on lap twenty-two. Inheriting the top place position would be Central Point’s, Garen Linder. Linder set a rapid pace once in the lead, but a flat right rear tire on the final circuit mixed things up.

Linder was under rapid fire from Janesville, California native Chelsea Blevins and Kinzer Cox, from Cottage Grove. First, Blevins went off the top of the track and into the wall in the final set of corners. Then, as Cox made the bonsai move underneath Blevins and Linder, he got to the point and won.

Racing for car owner Brian Crockett and utilizing a Limited engine, Cox is the third different winner in as many shows in the 360s.

Garen Linder limped his mount home to second, with Dixonville veteran Vern Scevers hitting the line third. Meridian, Idaho youngster Tyler Driever placed fourth over fifth finishing Chelsea Blevins.

Paul Rea was quick to get out in front of the IMCA Modifieds in their feature. Rea, of Eugene, blazed the trail in the first half of the race but was overtaken on lap fifteen. Bricen James was the one to get to the front and did his very best to create space between himself and second.

However, five total stoppages kept things close and put a bunch of emphasis on the restarts. In the end, the Albany racer of James successfully navigated his way around “The Grove” in first place. Bricen scored his third win at Cottage Grove Speedway and his second straight. All three wins have been earned in KMJ Performance Oregon State and Shaw Race Cars Western Region action.

Keizer’s John Campos finished the runner-up, followed by Jesse Williamson, from Coburg, in third.

Curtis Towns, of Cottage Grove, got fourth while fifth was credited to Keno’s Jeffrey Hudson, in the Don Roemer owned machine.

The Street Stocks had a smashing main event with close-quarter action on nearly every lap. There would be one single stoppage producing practically non-stop racing. It set things up for a massive four-car battle between Graig Osborne, Justin Evans, Taunton Swaim, and Dakota Godard.

All but Godard had experienced success at Cottage Grove this year. Osborne, from Creswell, somehow managed to keep them all in check to win his fourth main event of 2021 at CGS. For second place, Lebanon’s Evans, racing for co-car owner Al Flora, beat out Taunton Swaim of Dexter. Albany racer Dakota Goddard ended the night fourth while Eugene chauffeur Adam Applebee completed the top five in fifth.

Seven stoppages were to be had in the Royalty Core IMCA Northern Sport Mod feature. Salem youngster Trevor Points showed the way in the early goings. He would feel an immense amount of pressure from behind but kept his cool for quite some time.

Dalton Bloom, now living in Lebanon, made the pass around Points on lap fourteen, but it would be negated due to a caution and gave Points the point yet again. Unfortunately, Trevor would exit turn two slightly high on the ensuing restart, handing over the top place position to Ray Bloom.

>From Creswell and Dalton’s father, Bloom tried his very best to extend his lead over second place, but four yellows, once he took control of the field, put a lot of emphasis on restarts. Fortunately for him, he would master them to maintain the lead and win his first race of 2021 at Cottage Grove Speedway and in KMJ Performance Oregon State competition.

Coburg veteran Ron Wilson rallied to a runner-up result, followed by Dalton Bloom in third.

Travis Pruitt, from Molalla, and Springfield’s Shawn Hand were fourth and fifth.

The only division to go non-stop for their main event were to be the IMCA Sport Compacts. Scarlett Drake would dominate the twenty-lap affair to win her first race of the season. Drake, from Salem, is the first female driver to succeed in the IMCA Sport Compacts at “The Grove” and in KMJ Performance Oregon State action in the class.

Dexter’s Brad Martin was second at the line while scored in third would be Jasper driver Andrew Langan, driving for car owner Randy Kuhl. Burnie Bryant, from Sutherlin, and Cottage Grove’s Kerry Cooper were fourth and fifth.

Cottage Grove Speedway returns to racing on Saturday, June 12th, for Grad Night. Graduates of the classes of 2020 and 2021 will get into the races for FREE. Divisions on the card include the Todd’s Auto Body Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds, Late Models, and Royalty Core IMCA Northern Sport Mods.

Bill Balog goes BACK-TO-BACK scoring TWO All Star Circuit of Champion Victories at Home

Hartland Wisconsin (June 7, 2021)- Bill Balog and B Squared Motorsports had their best weekend of racing yet racing with the 2021 FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions! Not only did they pick up their first win, but back-to-back victories at both the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, WI and Angel Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, WI as the circuit visited Bill’s home state.

The weekend started off on a high note Thursday at Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, IL where Bill qualified second and was charging for his first victory with the All Stars in the Feature but came up just short and finished third. “We were super-fast Thursday night”, said the 10 time IRA champion, “We ended up third fighting for the win but I’ll take that any night at this level of competition”.

Friday night, the tour visited Wilmot Raceway where Bill has had tremendous success with the IRA series over the years. “I knew right away that we had something for them on Friday, the car felt great and was bad fast,” according to Bill. Despite not qualifying great, the Anderson’s Pure Maple Syrup 17B car was winning its heat by a full straightaway by the fourth lap and won it handily, putting it in the dash and locking it into the A Main. During the parade lap of the A main, Bill started hearing a “clunking” sound in the front end and the car didn’t steer quite the way it should. Bill went on to describe the bizarre situation: “Fortunately, (fellow competitor) Zeb Wise started pointing to the front of my car and I saw that a bolt was missing in the steering system, I definitely have to thank him for that or I could’ve taken out half the field when the green flag dropped when I got to turn one and tried to turn left.” Bill went to the work area where the crew got him back out in time to start 24th on the field. After returning, he was “extra motivated” as he methodically worked his way through the field and ended up with the Hercules Tire Hard Charger award for finishing 6th!

Saturday night in Plymouth saw a capacity crowd and legions of Balog fans hoping to see the 17B get that first victory. Out of the gate, Bill went to the top of the speed charts and set quick time! He went on to finish third in his heat and the won the dash. Starting on the pole of the 30 Lap A-main, Bill initially lost the lead, but had it back in less than 5 laps and went on to put on a clinic and pull away from the field. The entire crowd held its collective breath with 5 to go when Bill came upon a gaggle of lapped cars and saw one of them jump the cushion. “I thought for sure he was going to spin and I’d end up hitting him, but somehow we didn’t touch.” From there it was on to victory lane where the massive crowd went crazy for the hometown hero. Bill said the crowd was absolutely “crazy” and hopes the fans know just how much he appreciates them for coming out. “It was great to get that first win with the All Stars and to do it in Plymouth made it sweeter than a big jar of Anderson’s Pure Maple Syrup!!”

Sunday night, the newest Allstar winner headed to Angel Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, WI for the final night of the upper Midwest swing. The Anderson’s Pure Maple Syrup, Buesser Concrete, Wisecup Siding, Howard Law, CK Contractors, Wayne Corini CPA, Lein Acres, Turn It Up Media 17B qualified 2nd on the night and placed 2nd in the Dash. Bill started 2nd in the A main but took the lead from Rico Abreu early on when he encountered lapped traffic and was forced to use a less than ideal line. “Once we got to lapped traffic and Rico had to change his line, I was pretty confident I could pass him,” Bill said. “Once I did and was out of the traffic, I just pounded the cushion as hard as I could and didn’t look back.” For the second time in 24 hours Bill Balog and B2 Motorsports visited victory lane!

According to Bill, “Our car is so fast right now and it drives so well. Joe Taylor, Dennis Gregg, Austin Semmelmann, and all the guys have given me such an awesome car. They work their tails off and never give up, I can’t thank them enough! I also need to thank Natalie Klemko for all her efforts with her social media help and heading up all the merchandise sales.” To make the weekend even sweeter, Bill’s sister and her family came all the way down from North Pole, Alaska to see the Wisconsin native have a career weekend in his home state and move up to 4th in All Star Circuit of Champions points.

Westfall aims for success in upcoming trips to Gas City and Twin Cities

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (June 7, 2021) – Highlighting their recent weekend with a podium run during the 19th Annual Keysor Memorial at Limaland Motorsports Park, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will do their best to continue that positive momentum boost during upcoming trips to Gas City I-69 Speedway and Twin Cities Raceway Park on Friday and Saturday, June 11-12. The Hoosier State weekend doubleheader will be highlighted with Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) competition at Twin Cities in North Vernon, Indiana, on Saturday.

Westfall, driver of the Ray Marshall-owned/Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car, finished third during his Limaland visit, advancing two spots on an “elbows up” racing surface to solidify his podium run. It was a second consecutive podium appearance by the legendary “Bumblebee Express,” finishing third during a BOSS Series start at Waynesfield one weekend prior.

Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports own one victory on the season, doing so at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Indiana, on April 9.

“Consistency is important. There’s nothing wrong with being consistent and earning podium finishes, but I think we are good enough to be on top. That’s what we are working toward,” Westfall said, who won a BOSS Series championship in 2019 for Ray Marshall Motorsports. “I can’t thank Ray Marshall and this entire team enough for their hard work and support so far in 2021. Ray believes in us and he believes in what we are capable of doing. I’m pretty confident we can get it done this week.”

In terms of recent experience, Twin Cities will be a relatively new destination for Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports, but the Forest, Ohio-based race team owns some success at Gas City already this year, finishing fifth during BOSS action on May 14.

Hobaugh rallies big in Sharon’s Western PA Speedweek program; Lernerville, Port, Sharon all ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

CHICORA, Pa. (June 7, 2021) – As planned, George Hobaugh and Hobaugh Motorsports hopped on the Western Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek circuit during the recent weekend, joining the Series during visits to Lernerville Speedway and Sharon Speedway on Friday and Saturday, June 4-5. Despite missing the top-ten during each of his weekend outings, kicking things off with a 12th-place score at Lernerville, Hobaugh found success in his own right, eventually capping his two-day schedule with a “hard charge” to finish just shy of tenth at Sharon.

Hobaugh, pilot of the Krill Recycling, Laskowski Plumbing, Ridgeview Security, Hobaugh’s Auto Parts, Colliers Custom Kitchen and Bath, No. 40 sprint car, was forced to hard charge after a heat race incident sent the Chicora, Pennsylvania-native to one of two B-Mains. Hobaugh went on to win his respective B-Main, ultimately ending his night with a rally from 22nd to finish 11th, scoring a $333 bonus for his efforts.

“It was a good way to end the weekend, but it’s hard to be satisfied,” Hobaugh said, a recent winner at Sharon Speedway. “We were hoping to put ourselves in another position to win at Sharon, but things don’t always work out as planned. All we can do is regroup this week and hope for better results this Friday and Saturday. There’s still a lot of season left.”

George Hobaugh and Hobaugh Motorsports will continue their 2021 campaign with another doubleheader weekend, this time visiting Lernerville Speedway and Port Royal Speedway on Friday and Saturday, June 11-12. In addition, Hobaugh Motorsports intends on joining the All Star Circuit of Champions at Sharon Speedway on Tuesday, June 15. The Ohio Sprint Speedweek program will award a $6,000 payday.

Michael with four starts through Illinois and Wisconsin; Ohio Sprint Speedweek begins Friday

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FREMONT, Ohio (June 7, 2021) – A four-day road trip through Illinois and Wisconsin turned into four consecutive All Star Circuit of Champions feature starts for the “Texas Traveler” T.J. Michael, doing so against a stout contingent of not only his fellow full-time All Stars, but also the IRA Outlaw Sprint Series. Michael highlighted his four-race/four-track campaign with a pair of 17th-place scores at Wilmot Raceway and Plymouth Dirt Track, respectively, each located within the Badger State. The two remaining weekend performances resulted in a 23rd-place finish at Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois, and a 22nd-place finish at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.

Michael, a FAST Series winner already in 2021, will have plenty of opportunities to trump his weekend outcomes, as the 39th edition of Ohio Sprint Speedweek is set to kick-off on Friday, June 11, at Attica Raceway Park igniting an eight-race schedule over nine days with eight tracks on the agenda, all awarding a minimum of $6,000. The Speedweek finale at Portsmouth Raceway Park, dubbed the Dean Knittel Memorial, will award a top prize equaling $17,554.

“That was a pretty solid weekend for our team. We had the opportunity to turn a lot of laps and that’s what’s most important. We aren’t going to learn anything if we don’t make laps,” Michael said, driver of the Michael Motorsports, Advanced Architectural Stone, Crown Battery, Fremont Fence Company, Pro-Tech Services, Wood Heating and Air Conditioning, Kistler Racing Engines, Elite Wings, Big D’s Pizza, Viva Los Healthy, M&L Graphics, HP Striping and Seal Coating, No. 8M sprint car. “Hats off to AJ Havens and everyone else that busts their butt for this team. Ohio Sprint Speedweek is no joke. It’s a long, grueling week, but this is what we live for. I’m ready to get started.”

Michael will enter his Ohio Sprint Speedweek campaign 12th in the All Star Circuit of Champions driver standings, qualifying for 11 of the 17 point-earning features thus far in 2021.

Justin Whittall breaks through for first-ever Williams Grove Speedway victory

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

VINCENTOWN, N.J. (June 7, 2021) – For the first time in his career, Justin Whittall is a Williams Grove Speedway main event winner, doing so in dramatic fashion while in action on Friday evening, June 4. The win, a wire-to-wire victory from the front row, scored the Vincentown, New Jersey-native a $6,000 payday, holding back fellow front row starter, Kyle Moody, and a quick moving Danny Dietrich in the process.

In fact, Whittall’s command stretched to nearly two seconds by the midpoint of the 25-lapper, but slower cars forced Whittall to check up allowing Moody and Dietrich to close the gap. Despite a last-ditch effort by Moody, pulling even with the red and black No. 67 coming out of turn four, Whittall held strong, beating Moody back to the line by less than a second.

The Williams Grove Speedway victory was Whittall’s second podium result of the 2021 season, ultimately bettering his Open Wheel Madness third-place score from April 24.

“This is unbelievable,” Justin Whittall said of his Williams Grove Speedway win. “We’ve been working for this moment for a long time. We live in New Jersey, but this is exactly why we come to Central Pennsylvania every weekend to race. These guys make you better. This feeling is like no other and we’re already excited for the opportunity to try again this weekend. I just want to thank my family, my crew, my partners; without all of you, this isn’t possible. Not by any means.”

Justin Whittall, ace of the JW Motorsports, JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Brotherton Brewing Company, Beechwood Landscape Architecture and Construction LLC, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, FK Rod Ends, Stilo Helmets, Keizer Aluminum Wheels, Enterprise, Ground Blind Boys, No. 67 sprint car, will continue his 2021 campaign with another weekend stint in Pennsylvania Posse Country, tentatively planning to make his return to Williams Grove Speedway on June 11, followed by a visit Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, June 12.

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Victorious at Granite City Motor Park and Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 7, 2021) - David Gravel enjoyed one of his best weekends of the season, which yielded a pair of feature victories to give the Big Game Motorsports driver six triumphs this year.

The action began last Friday at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D., for the Gerdau Presents the 1st Leg of the Northern Tour. Gravel set quick time during qualifying for the eighth time during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition this season before rain wiped out the remainder of the program.

Granite City Motor Park in Sauk Rapids, Minn., hosted the GMC Select Dealers of Minnesota Presents the World of Outlaws on Saturday. Gravel qualified sixth quickest, but he won a heat race after starting third to advance into the dash.

"The leader clipped a tire and that got me into second," he said. "I was able to get the jump on the start and won the heat. We drew the No. 4 out of four for the dash draw. That didn't seem to matter too much. We ran fourth in the dash.

"The race played out in my favor. I was able to get to third. On a restart I was able to hit the bottom good to get to the lead. Then I could control the race running the bottom good. The lapped cars held me up a little and I heard Sheldon (Haudenschild) ripping the top. Around Lap 28 or Lap 29 I heard him and moved to the top the rest of the race. I don't think it was a better lane; it was just an open lane because lapped cars were down there."

Gravel led Lap 15 and then the final 19 laps of the 35-lap feature for his fifth World of Outlaws win of the season and 63rd of his career.

The team ventured to Huset's Speedway on Sunday for I-29 RV SuperCenter Night. Gravel set quick time during qualifying and advanced from fourth to second place during a heat race. He made the feature redraw and pulled the No. 3 to line up on the inside of the second row for the 25-lap A Main.

"I was able to qualify good so we just had to finish in the top five in the heat to qualify for the feature redraw," he said. "We got a good redraw and started third. We got to second early. It was really fast around the top. (Shane) Golobic is a good short track racer and it's hard to pass him. He made a mistake in traffic and I was able to slide him. If that hadn't happened I don't know if I would have been able to get by him."

Gravel ran second for a majority of the race before capturing the lead with six laps remaining. The victory was his first ever at the track.

"We had a very strong weekend," he said. "I don't know what the peak is, but I feel as a team we had a successful weekend and we're on the same page. It felt really good and accomplishing."

Gravel returns to World of Outlaws action this Friday and Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, during the Brownells Big Guns Bash.

"Knoxville is a whole different animal, a whole different beast," he said. "I feel it's important to get laps at Knoxville. It's a tricky place. It's one of those things we need to see where we stack up. I know we have good running motors. We need to make the car right and hopefully we can run up front."

Williamson Tackling Ohio Sprint Speedweek During All Star Debut

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 7, 2021) - Garet Williamson's plan to make his FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions debut was delayed a week.

The Bryant Paver Motorsports driver intended to run four races with the series last weekend, but the team's 410ci engines weren't finished being freshened. That is changing this week, giving Williamson confidence rolling into Ohio Sprint Speedweek.

The team plans to compete in all eight races during a nine-day span. It will mark Williamson's debut at all eight tracks.

"It's always fun to run 410 stuff, especially with the competition the All Stars has," he said. "It will be a great learning experience getting to run that many nights in a row. In a way this year is our first year on the road since we had the pandemic that altered plans last year. We've learned so much. Every weekend you're learning more and more. And the more you learn the more you look at things differently. Eight straight nights gives you an unbelievable amount to learn."

Ohio Sprint Speedweek starts on Friday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio. The remaining races are Saturday at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio; Monday at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio; June 15 at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio; June 16 at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio; June 17 at Muskingum County Speedway in Dresden, Ohio; June 18 at Limaland Motorsports Park in Lima, Ohio; and June 19 at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio.

Without a 410 engine to run, Williamson and Company competed in the 360 class last Saturday at Knoxville Raceway. Williamson qualified 15 th quickest and finished where he started - second - in a heat race.

"That was our best qualifying result there," he said. "Then we led most of our heat race before Jamie (Ball) snuck by us. He's one of the best guys there. In the feature I just struggled the first 10 laps. I couldn't make good, clean laps on the top. Once we got strung out I got better and improved later in the race to get up to 16th."

Williamson's 16th-place result was his 15th top 20 of the season.

QUICK RESULTS -

June 5 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 15; Heat race: 2 (2); Feature: 16 (14).

Kaleb Johnson Posts 11th-Place Run at Knoxville Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 7, 2021) - Kaleb Johnson overcame a disappointing start to the evening Saturday night to record an 11th-place finish in the 360ci sprint car feature at Knoxville Raceway.

"Our night was okay," he said. "It didn't start out the best, but it ended a lot better than it has recently. It was a plus to finally finish a race."

Johnson's evening of competition began by timing in 11th quickest out of 28 drivers. While it was a respectable effort, it was a bit disappointing after qualifying in the top five the previous two weeks.

"Our time wasn't terrible, but I wasn't too thrilled about it since we've been qualifying well as of late," he said. "The track got slicker earlier this week than about the four or five previous weeks, when it stayed pretty wet until around the heat races.

"I should've run the top both laps. I ran the bottom the first lap and that kind of messed up my momentum for the second lap."

Johnson's qualifying effort slotted him into the third starting position in his heat race. He finished fourth.

"We had the car just a little too free in the heat race," he said. "I had a hard time keeping the rear tires underneath it."

Johnson started 13th in the 24-car A Main.

"We made a lot of changes to the car for the feature and they seemed to help," he said. "Unfortunately for us, the race ran non-stop with no restarts. We were able to get up to 11th right away, but even then the field was getting strung out. You know it's going to be a fast pace when you have guys like Clint Garner and Jamie Ball starting up front and it can get strung out in a hurry when there aren't any restarts.

"The good thing was that my last 10 laps were probably my best laps of the night. I was able to gain on the four cars in front of me as the race wound down, but we ran out of laps before I was able to do anything with them."

Up next for Johnson will be competition with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and the Midwest Power Series on Friday night at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., before a return to Knoxville Raceway on Saturday.

"I'm looking forward to our first race at Jackson this year," he said. "We've had some pretty good runs there in the past in the 305. Hopefully, we can have another this week with our 360 and then build on that momentum going into Knoxville on Saturday."

Starks Continues Top-10 Streak to Start Season Despite Misfortune at Grays Harbor Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - ELMA, Wash. (June 7, 2021) - Trey Starks recorded his fourth top-10 finish in four sprint car races this season when he made his season debut at Grays Harbor Raceway last Saturday.

"It tried to rain on and off all day," he said. "We got a late start and ended up scrapping time trials so we went straight into heat races. The track was super fast. We were three tenths of a second under the 360 track record and one tenth off the 410 track record. We led the whole heat race."

Starks won his heat race after lining up on the outside of the front row.

"They did an inversion of six sot that put us starting sixth in the feature," he said. "We got to third on the start and then we took the lead about Lap 12. Shortly after taking the lead we blew up. We had put our spare motor in to keep laps off our good motor going into the Fred Brownfield Classic and Dirt Cup. We hadn't run it in a while. We're going to dig through it this week to see how bad it is.

"It's like how every weekend has gone this year. I've been really, really happy with our speed. We just haven't had stuff go our way. Hopefully we get all of this stuff out of the way before the bigger races coming up."

Starks, who was credited with an eighth-place result, plans to be idle this weekend before tackling the Fred Brownfield Classic on June 19-20 at Grays Harbor Raceway with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

June 5 - Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash. - Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 8 (6).

Blake Carrick Bags First Placerville Speedway Win of 2021

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night, Blake Carrick was relentless on the thick Placerville Speedway cushion, as he was able to breakthrough and score his first win at the famed ¼ mile bullring, since picking up the Mark Forni Classic last season.

“I don’t know what else to say other than a big thank you to my team,” Blake Carrick said. “The track really reminded me of the conditions last year when we won, so I figured I’d pound the top and hope for the best.”

Timing in 15th fastest in qualifying time trials, Carrick would just make the inversion in heat race action and put the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 38b entry on the front row. Taking full advantage of the prime starting spot, the Lincoln, CA chauffeur raced to the win and not only put himself in the feature event, also earned a spot in the coveted redraw.

Pulling the six pill, Carrick would line up on the outside of the third row for the 25-lap Kings Meats Night feature event. Working the high side from the race’s onset, Carrick would slowly work his way into third by the race’s halfway point as the race got underway in an extended green flag run.

A caution on lap 13 would see Carrick line up behind the lead duo of Kyle Offill and Shane Hopkins, but a lap later Hopkins would retire with mechanical issues and put Carrick on the front row for the restart.

Lining up on the outside, Offill would continue to work the bottom to perfection, but Carrick was able to build his momentum up and surge to the lead on the 15th lap.

Looking strong out front, a final stoppage would come on the 19th lap and would force the the field into one final double-file restart. While Offill hung with Carrick, Carrick would ultimately break away and race his way to the win, and take home a meat box valued at $250 courtesy of Kings Meats in Diamond Springs, CA.

“I saw Shane Hopkins working the top too and thought we would hook up in a battle for position, but he had issues that knocked him out of the race which totally sucks for them,” Carrick said. “I kept digging up there, and it worked out. It feels good to get back in victory lane at Placerville Speedway.”

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

ON TAP: Blake Carrick will return to action at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night for the 30th Annual Dave Bradway Jr Memorial.

Sanders Scores Sixth Ocean Speedway Win of Season

PETERSEN MEDIA: The winning continued for Justin Sanders over the weekend as he stopped in at his home trac, Ocean Speedway, and recorded his sixth win of the season at the facility on Friday night, giving him 14 on the season.

“We have been working on our car so long, and Friday night it felt really good,” Sanders said. “A lot of the R and D we have been doing is paying off, and it is great to get another win here and it’s that much more special with fans in the stands.”

Sanders got his night off to a very quick start on Friday as he would briefly break the qualifying track record at Ocean Speedway only to be outdone by Keith Day Jr, a few cars later. Ending up second fastest in time trials, Sanders would line the North County Plastering/Andy’s Construction/Roadside 24hr Service machine up in the second row of his heat race.

Picking up a pair of positions in preliminary action, Sanders would record a second-place finish and move into the all-important Dash later in the night. Finishing second in the Dash to Keith Day, Jr, Sanders would line up on the front row against the youngster as he looked for his sixth win of the year at the track he cut his teeth at.

When the green flag was displayed to the field, it was Sanders getting the early jump as he quickly began opening his lead up. Setting a nice pace, Sanders would open his lead up to nearly half a second over the field until the caution flew and bunched everyone back up on the 12th lap.

Despite a couple more stoppages later in the race, Sanders would be unphased on this night, as he kept his family-owned entry up front, as he cruised to his 101st career feature event win.

“A big thank you to everyone who supports our team, and lends a hand at the track,” Sanders said. “The Summer is just getting started, and there are some big race coming up that we would sure like to win.”

Justin and his team would like to thank North County Plastering, Alkaline88, Andy’s Construction, Roadside 24hr Service, Wicked Cushion, Roger’s Diner, Factory Kahne, BG Labels and Tee’s, Walker Performance Filtration, Dixon and Son Tires, Ernie’s Service Center, East Lake Village, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., DMI, Keizer Wheels, Wings Unlimited, Ti64 Titanium, AIS Heating and Sheet Metal, Fred Lint and Family, JonSan Racing, Sandblast Service, G&N Construction, Steitz Towing, Durden Construction, Ernie’s Service Center, and Steve Duppman Racing for their continued support in 2021.

Kyle Offill Nets Best Finish of 2021

PETERSEN MEDIA: Kyle Offill will be the first one to tell you that 2021 has been a rough season. Saturday night, however, Offill put together a very strong night at Placerville Speedway that culminated with him garnering a third-place finish after leading the first half of the race.

“Normally I think you are a little bitter with a third-place finish after leading laps, but after the last couple of months we have had, a third-place finish is awesome,” Kyle Offill said. “It felt great to be up front and competing for a win. I was kind of hoping we would get into traffic, but a couple of yellows negated that chance and Blake was a little better in open track conditions.”

With 31 cars on hand, Offill got his night off to a great start as he timed the Country Builders/Ochco West Lumber/Reliable Lumber mount in third fastest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Offill was able to keep his machine inside the Top-Four, as he would finish third and transfer into the feature event as well as into the nightly redraw.

Pulling the two pill, Offill would line up on the front row of the 25-lap feature event alongside Shane Hopkins. When the green flag dropped it was Offill dipping to the low side of the speedway and taking command of the race early.

Working the bottom to perfection, Offill was able to slowly pull away from second running Hopkins, who had taking a liking to the high side of the speedway himself. Clicking off laps, Offill continued to set the pace as traffic would soon approach as the race neared the halfway point.

As the leaders got to the back of the field, the caution would fly on the 14th lap, giving Offill a clear track in front of him.

The ensuing restart would see Hopkins get the jump over Offill, however it was all for not as Hopkins endured mechanical failure at the other end of the track and ended his night.

The next restart would see Blake Carrick start alongside Offill. While Offill was bale to get the jump, Carrick would hang with the leader as he used the cushion, and was able to take the top spot and drop Offill to second.

Continuing to work the bottom in second, Offill would close back in on the leader until the caution flew with just six laps left in the race. The final restart would see Offill have a run on the leader, but as Carrick was able to keep his right rear on the cushion, he would pull back ahead as they raced into three and four.

Coming to the checkered, a surging Kalib Henry would sneak around Offill as Offill came home with a third-place finish.

“I really have to thank my team for being so patient with me and really enduring some tough nights,” Offill said. “It was great to have a good run, and hopefully we can match this at the Bradway this weekend.”

Kyle Offill would like to thank Country Builders, Ochoco West Lumber, Reliable Lumber, Boise Cascade, Inc., Brown and Miller, MAAS Brothers Powder Coating, Offill Family Farms, Tool Tech Construction Supply, HRP, FK Shocks, A.R.T. Enterprise, Hinchman Racewear, Maxim Chassis, and B. Scadden Design for their continued support.

ON TAP: Offill will be back in action during a pair of KWS events this weekend. On June 11th the series will be in Watsonville, CA and June 12th in Placerville, CA for the 30th Annual Dave Bradway, Jr Memorial.

 

 

Tanner Carrick 5th at Dave Bradway Jr Memorial Tune Up

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting one final night of action in at Placerville Speedway before this weekend’s marquee Dave Bradway, Jr Memorial, Tanner Carrick would battle some gremlins and still come away with a fifth place finish.

“We started having an issue at our last race in Marysville, CA and we thought we fixed it,” Tanner Carrick said. “It gave us some fits in our heat, and then again the feature, but we were still able to come away with a Top-5.”

Getting his night started off in fine fashion, Carrick would best the field of 31 cars in time trials as he earned ADCO Driveline and Exhaust Quick Time Honors aboard the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83T machine.

Lining up fourth in his heat race, Carrick would finish in the third position and safely transfer into the feature event. By way of his qualifying time, he would also earn a spot in the redraw where his seven-pill placed him in the fourth row to start the 25-lap feature event.

As the race got underway, Carrick would begin working his way into the Top-Five, though noted his engine would still stumble a little at times. Just before the race’s midway point, Carrick would hook up in a very entertaining battle with Kalib Henry, as the duo jockeyed for the position in the Top-Five.

Exchanging spots at both ends of the track, the duo put un quite a show until the race’s first caution was needed.

Back underway, the double file restart would not allow for the battle to continue, though Carrick would take the fifth position as he continued to work around the ¼ mile bullring.

Doing what he could despite not being a full power, Carrick would cap the night off with his 13th Top-5 finish of the season.

“Big thanks to my guys, for doing all they could do get us right,” Carrick said. “I felt really good in the heat and the feature, but just didn’t quite have the power needed to get us by some of those guys. Looking forward to another big race at Placerville this weekend.”

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 27, Wins: 2, Top 5’s: 13, Top 10’s: 19

Forsberg Recovers for Sixth Place Finish at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- With mechanical issues sidelining Andy Forsberg from competing in his heat race on Saturday night, the Auburn, CA driver would come back through the ‘B’ Main and still record a sixth-place finish in the 25-lap feature event.

“It was a bit of a frustrating night for the F&F Racing team,” Andy Forsberg said. “We timed in well, but we had some fuel system issues that kept us out of our heat race and forced us into the “B”.”

With 31 cars on hand to tune up for this weekend’s 30th Annual Dave Bradway Jr Memorial event, Forsberg would get the night started by timing the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed entry in fifth fastest in time trials.

Rolling out for heat race action, issues within the fuel system aboard the F&F Racing machine would force Forsberg to the work area. As they thrashed to make repairs, it looked as if Forsberg would make the call, but upon returning to the track he would pull into the infield.

Forced into the ‘B’, Forsberg would appear to be hitting on all cylinders as he turned in a very strong performance. Picking up the win, Forsberg would move into the feature event and get his qualifying time back.

Lining up just behind the re-draw cars, the Auburn, CA driver would take the green flag from the ninth starting position. On a very slick surface that with sizeable curb built up on both ends of the speedway, Forsberg would pick up a couple positions though he still could quite make a run that he had hoped to make.

When the race came to a close, Forsberg would take the checkered flag with a sixth place finish.

“We are still really searching to find grip on the slick,” Andy Forsberg said. “Our night started off well, and then it was a bit of a struggle. The Bradway is coming this week, and it is a race that means a lot to this team, so we will go to work this week and hopefully be ready to compete for a win on Saturday.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

ON TAP: F&F Racing will be back in action on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

Justyn Cox Charges Through Field for Eighth Place Finish

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to Placerville Speedway for the first time since picking up a win two weeks ago, Justyn Cox had another bad fast race car underneath him. Making an early mistake while charging forward form 10th, Cox would rebound from the back of the pack to score an eighth-place finish.

“We had a great car, but unfortunately I made a mistake trying to get a position,” Justyn Cox said. “We went to the back and showed how good we were as I was still able to get back up to an eighth-place finish.”

A total of 31 cars were on hand Saturday night for Kings Meats night at Placerville Speedway, and Cox would get his Berco Redwood/Barry Lumber/Lund Construction mount timed in sixth quickest in qualifying time trials.

Making a couple of nice moves at the start of his heat race, Cox would jump into second as he chased after youngster, Dylan Bloomfield. Able to get alongside Bloomfield on a couple of occasions as he looked to a spot in the redraw, Cox would come up short and finish second.

Still moving into the feature event, Cox would find himself back in the 10th starting position for the 25-lap feature event.

When the race came to life, Cox would go to work as he began working his way forward toward the Top-Five. Using the Placerville Speedway cushion, Cox raced his way into fifth on the ninth lap.

Looking for fourth, Cox would get his right rear tire up over the cushion on the 13th lap, and it would result in his bringing his machine to a stop and forcing him to the tail end of the field.

Restarting 19th, Cox would get his elbows back up as he would make a some more big moves and find himself back in the Top-10 in just five laps.

Taking the 10th position over on the 18th lap, Cox would move up into the eighth following a restart on lap 19. Battling with Joe Myers, Jr in the closing laps, Cox would get up into seventh, but Myers would get back by him coming to the checkered and Cox would cap his night off with an eighth place finish.

“I really have to thank Cody and the guys who work on this deal,” Cox added. “We have been really good at Placerville the last couple of weeks, and I am really excited about this Bradway this weekend. Having a blast with Cody and Mandi, and hoping to pick up some of these big races that are coming up.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Berco Redwood, Barry Lumber, Inc., Lund Construction, Anrak, Legacy Specialties, Inc. PT Shocks, Swartz Diesel, Alturas Tires, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

ON TAP: Cox and C&M Motorsports will bet right back to it on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-16, Wins-1, Top 5’s-4, Top 10’s-13

Track: Angell Park Speedway (Sun Prairie, Wisconsin)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 3rd (1st)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (June 7, 2021) - Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing put together an impressive string of results during the recent weekend, capping their four-day, four-race All Star Circuit of Champions swing through Illinois and Wisconsin with four consecutive top-five finishes, highlighting their extended weekend with a runner-up performance at Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois, on Thursday, June 3. Abreu’s Fairbury run commenced from row three, working around All Star full-timer Bill Balog with two laps remaining to secure the second level on the podium.

A fifth-place score at Wilmot Raceway on Friday, June 4, was followed-up with back-to-back third-place finishes at Plymouth Dirt Track and Angell Park Speedway on Saturday and Sunday, June 5-6. Of the pair, Abreu’s performance at Plymouth was most impressive. Not afflicted by a fourth-row starting position, Abreu moved through the field in a hurry, utilizing the track’s heavy curb to power ahead from eighth to third in 30 circuits. Impressive enough, the 30-lap contest went caution free.

Abreu’s third-place outcome at Angell Park Speedway concluded the four-race agenda through the upper Midwest. Starting from the pole position, Abreu was the man in charge for the first ten circuits, forced to give up the top spot when eventual winner, Bill Balog, powered by Abreu off of turn four on lap 11. The slingshot move was initiated when Abreu attempted to get through the corner on the bottom, ultimately missing the moisture and allowing Balog to drive by.

“I’m proud of my team. Things are clicking and it feels good to be in a position to win every single night,” Rico Abreu said, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Rowdy Energy/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Self Made/The Wiser Agency/Stadelhofer Construction/Salty’s BBQ/No. 24 sprint car. “I just can’t say enough about my team and what we’ve been able to put together. We’re communicating well and we’re building some rhythm that will hopefully act as an advantage during Ohio Sprint Speedweek. I can’t wait to see all of our Ohio friends again. It’s going to be a fun week.”

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with the 39th edition of Ohio Sprint Speedweek featuring Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions, set to kick-off Friday, June 11, at Attica Raceway Park. Attica’s lidlifter will ignite an eight-race schedule over nine days with eight tracks on the agenda, all of which awarding a minimum of $6,000. The Speedweek finale at Portsmouth Raceway Park, dubbed the Dean Knittel Memorial, will award a top prize equaling $17,554.

After the Attica opener on June 11, Ohio Sprint Speedweek will continue with appearances at Fremont Speedway on Saturday, June 12, Wayne County Speedway on Monday, June 14, Sharon Speedway on Tuesday, June 15, Waynesfield Raceway Park on Wednesday, June 16, Muskingum County Speedway on Thursday, June 17, Limaland Motorsports Park on Friday, June 18, and Portsmouth Raceway Park on Saturday, June 19.

2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Fourth | 3786 points [146 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 7, 2021) - Just one spot shy of the top of the podium, ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz, capped his weekend in the upper-Midwest with another sound performance with the Greatest Show On Dirt, this time finishing second at Granite City Speedway in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota, on Saturday, June 5.

A product of the front row, Schatz faded to fourth initially before working his way back to a podium spot, eventually utilizing a last lap pass to get by Sheldon Haudenschild for second; the gap between Haudenschild and Schatz was .094 seconds.

Schatz opened his evening at Granite City with the fifth-fastest time during qualifying trials. The Fargo, North Dakota-native went on to finish second during heat race competition, then capped preliminary action by winning the evening’s dash.

“We just couldn’t get to the right place at the right time,” Schatz noted on their A-Main run. “Trying to get those spots back was tough. We salvaged a decent finish, though. We’re in the hunt and we’re getting closer. That makes me feel a lot better.”

Ruined by Mother Nature, action set for Friday, June 4, at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, North Dakota, was ultimately canceled.

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Carquest Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Sage Fruit/Digital Ally/Advance Auto Parts/Rush Truck Centers/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 team will continue their World of Outlaws championship quest with the Brownells Big Guns Bash doubleheader at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Friday and Saturday, June 11-12. Certainly familiar with the Sprint Car Capital of the World, Schatz is a ten-time Knoxville Nationals champion, most recently scoring the world’s most prestigious sprint car prize in 2017.

With the Brownells Big Guns Bash in mind, Kerry Madsen, continuing his substitution for Tony Stewart aboard the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing No. 14 sprint car, visited Knoxville Raceway during the recent weekend and nailed down some valuable lap time. The random outing proved successful for the “Madman,” finishing second during main event competition after opening the program with the fastest time during qualifying time trials and a heat race win.

Tentatively, Madsen is scheduled to join Schatz for the Big Guns Bash this Friday and Saturday.

Pennsylvania Swing: Patriot Sprint Tour to visit Penn Can and Selinsgrove Speedways this weekend

(Susquehanna, Pa) After an extremely unusual schedule back in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there were two tracks that the A-Verdi Storage Containers Patriot Sprint Tour was able to visit last season and that was Penn Can Speedway and Selinsgrove Speedway.

It was the Patriots first visit to Penn Can Speedway since 2007 and it did not disappoint. After a rain shortened event in August, the series was brought back in late September to finish the August A- Main and run a completely new show. In the first event, Davie Franek was the A-Main winner where he paid tribute to Pete Richardson. A long time PST Competitor that passed away a few weeks before. In the second A-Main, up and coming sprint car star Matt Farnham scored his first career win in 360 sprint car competition.

Last season, the Patriots were also able to visit Selinsgrove Speedway for the annual Joe Whitcomb Memorial. Local driver, Blaine Heimbach picked up the win and it was his 4th time winning the memorial race.

As far as this season, the Patriots have been able to hold three events. The first one being at Outlaw Speedway where it was Davie Franek picking up the win. In the second event, Chuck Hebing was the race winner at the high banks of Woodhull Raceway and the third event was a part of the Ohio swing at the Waynesfield Speedway that was a co-sanctioned event with the National Racing Alliance. Brady Bacon was the victor in that event that paid $12,000 to win.

There have also been three rainouts, one of which was at the Selinsgrove Speedway that was supposed to occur in early May. The other two events were a part of the Ohio Swing that was at Limaland and Wayne County Speedway.

Through three events, Davie Franek (436) is the current point leader and holds a slim margin over Jordan Thomas (425) and Jared Zimbardi (423). Dave Axton (377) and Steve Glover (353) round out the top five in points so far in 2020.

After this Pennsylvania swing, the Patriots have one more event in the month of June which is held at the historic Fonda Speedway on June 26.

REVISED 2021 SCHEDULE RELEASED FOR KNIGHTS OF THUNDER SPRINT CARS
By Tommy Goudge (June 5, 2021) – The Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car series has a revised schedule for the 2021 season, which is now slated to begin on June 26 at Southern Ontario Motor Speedway.

The revised schedule includes 12 full-points events, four events which will award show-up points, and three non-points events in co-operation with the Patriot Sprint Tour and Empire Super Sprints. Nine events will feature Sprint Car doubleheaders with the Action Sprint Tour Crate Sprint Cars, and live broadcasts are slated from 12 events on www.gforcetv.net

Schedules at all venues are still subject to change due to the ongoing pandemic situation, and the schedule will remain tentative until the end of July as a result; series officials will continue to work with the venues to ensure the teams can get on track as much as possible.

In addition to following the rules and restrictions in the Province of Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopen plan, events at Ohsweken Speedway will need to abide by regulations laid out by the Six Nations Emergency Control Group.

"The schedule will be finalized on July 31, 2021 and no dates will be added or changed after that time," stated Series Director Clinton Geoffrey. "With the Ohsweken events still locked down, we may add up to four rescheduled dates to get our teams a full season.

“We remain very optimistic that Ohsweken will see action in 2021 but until we know for sure, we need to keep the options open. We appreciate the teams, track operators, sponsors, and officials working alongside us through these unprecedented times.”

More than 30 drivers have indicated their intention to compete in at least a portion of the 2021 Knights of Thunder season. Each full-points KoT event purse will pay at least $2,000-to-win and $250 to start the A-Main, with selected races broadcast live on GForceTV. The championship winner will be rewarded with $5,000 and a Pinty's VIP package for the 2022 Bristol Dirt Race, while 10th place in the championship standings will pay $1,000.

Reutzel Resumes World of Outlaws Rookie Campaign with Northern Tour

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (June 4, 2021) – Aaron Reutzel continues his maiden voyage along the World of Outlaws trail aboard the Roth Motorsports No. 83 with more new territory in North Dakota and Minnesota this weekend.

The first leg of the Northern Tour kicks off at Grand Forks, North Dakota’s River Cities Speedway on Friday night before shifting to Granite City Motor Park in Sauk Rapids, MN, on Saturday night.

After a tremendous start to the season that included 20 top-tens in the initial 23 series events of the season including a pair of wins, Reutzel and crew will try to reverse a spate of bad luck that has lingered over the past pair of weekends.

They nearly did so during Monday’s “Memorial Day Spectacular” at Indiana’s Lawrenceburg Speedway, earning the pole position for the feature and then holding down a solid runner-up position only to trip up over a gnarly cushion in tun three and get upside down late in the race.

It followed on the heels of an impromptu tenth to sixth-place run at Knoxville Raceway that came about after a Terre Haute rainout on Friday.

Reutzel still holds down seventh in World of Outlaws points and maintains a commanding lead in the Rookie of the Year race. He’ll try to build upon that this weekend in North Dakota and Minnesota.

2021 Quick Stats: 38 races, 3 wins, 11 top-fives, 27 top-tens.

Next Up: World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at River Cities Speedway on Friday and Granite City Motor Park on Saturday. Those unable to attend can watch all the action live on www.dirtvision.com.

EDDIE TAFOYA JR. HIT BY TOUGH BREAK AT SALUTE TO INDY

(Chino Hills, CA, June 4, 2021) Paying your dues for a young athlete in any sport can be extremely frustrating. That includes auto racing. After the May 22nd Salute to Indy at Perris Auto Speedway, rising sprint car talent Eddie Tafoya Jr. can certainly attest to that. The 23-year-old was on the way to his best finish in the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series when he ran out of fuel in the waning laps.

Showing off a fan pleasing new graphics package that included red chrome trim on the #51T, Tafoya came out firing on all cylinders. He timed in 10th fastest in the 26-car field with a lap of 16.875. He started fourth in his heat, but was body checked off his line on the first lap. That check knocked the Chino Hills, California resident all the way back to sixth. He did recover and came back to finish fifth. However, that left him one spot out of a transfer to the A Main event and forced him into the B Main.

For the 12-car B main event, Tafoya started on the pole. He proceeded to dominate the race leading every inch of the way. At one point before a late race yellow flag, he had a half straightaway advantage over his nearest competitor. That lead was erased by the caution, but as soon as racing resumed, he again pulled away from the field and scored a convincing win.

When the 30-lap Salute To Indy rolled off the line in front of the large, excited crowd, Tafoya and the shiny #51T lined up in the 10th spot. The 2019 series rookie of the year stayed around that position and that is where he was running when disaster struck just ahead of him. It was a massive pileup in turn three that involved seven of the top eight cars. Tafoya did a good job and went to the bottom of the track to avoid the mess.

Due to staying out of the turn three tangle, Tafoya restarted in the fourth-place spot with eight-laps to go. Fireworks started again before a lap was completed when the two first place cars started crashing in turn four. The chaos sent cars into the wall and careening across the track. There was no margin for error in getting through the mess. Tafoya deftly steered between a pair of zigzagging cars with inches to spare! That was the good news! The better news was the quick thinking reactions that guided him through the crash advanced him up to second for the next restart.

Tucked behind the leader when the race resumed, Tafoya was looking towards his best USAC/CRA finish. He pulled away from the third place driver and seemingly had second locked up. However, the paying due’s part reared its ugly head as it does for most drivers early in their careers. Coming off turn two on lap 25, he suddenly slowed. Due to the inordinate number of yellow flags, the #51T ran out of fuel and was saddled with an 18th place finish.

Sadly on the scoresheet, the 18th place finish does not look impressive. Nor is it indicative of what those who witnessed the race in person or on FLO Racing worldwide saw. They watched an impressive race by a young driver on the rise in the sport.

With no 410-sprint car racing in Southern California the next two Saturday’s, Tafoya and the #51T will not be back in action until June 19th at Perris Auto Speedway. Spectator gates for that race will open at 5:00 p.m. with racing at 7:00.

Fans can get one of the team's great looking new shirts and meet the team at any of the upcoming USAC/CRA races. For those who cannot make it to the track, contact Eddie Tafoya Jr. on his Instagram or Facebook pages and he will get you all set up.

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

Fremont Speedway Hall of Fame

Class of 2020

DRIVERS

Dave Hoover – Dave started racing in 1964 in the hobby stock division at Fremont Speedway. He drove sprint cars from 1968-70, driving for Gary Willey and Dick “Soup” Sabo. Dave drove a Buick powered race car and his first sprint win was Fremont Speedway’s mid-season championship night in 1969. Dave scored four feature wins during his career at Fremont Speedway.

Al Hager – Al drove sprint cars for 20 years from 1976-1996, traveling all over the United States. He posted two career wins at Fremont and drove his own cars most of the time but did sit behind the wheel for owners like Donny Clapper, Ray Smith (dirt champ car), the DePalma family, Bob Hampshire, Harold Kemenah and the Coats family. All got interested in racing through his friendships with hall of famers George Gillespie and Eric Phillips.

Frank Kerr – Frank, a four time champion of the All Start Circuit of Champions, posted 10 career sprint car wins at Fremont Speedway, seven of them being All Star victories, placing him fourth on the all-time All Star win list at Fremont. In fact, Frank’s last All Star win came at Fremont Speedway during Ohio Sprint Speedweek in 2000 as he would retire from driving the next day. Frank posted 2 career World of Outlaw wins during his career, one of them coming at Fremont. Kerr has been a crew chief in NASCAR for 14 years.

MECHANICS

Bob Dorr – Bob worked on race cars from 1963-1973, with cars he worked on winning many features and championships at Fremont Speedway. Having worked at Century Die with hall of famer Al Franks, Bob developed the racing bug early on. When Neil Keckler decided to build a car for Franks to drive, Bob became a racing mechanic. Bob worked alongside hall of fame mechanic Tom Schemmer on race cars driven by Franks and hall of famers Darl Harrison and Harold McGilton. Bob’s car won the 1969 IMCA championship with Harrison at the wheel. Harrison also drove a Bob Dorr prepared car to one of his three Little 500 victories.

Floyd Heft – Floyd built cars along side hall of famer Earl Lowe. One of Floyd’s creations was driven by hall of famer Harry Kresser. Floyd started building race cars in 1954 and he even drove some of his creations, mainly on asphalt. Floyd’s favorite creation was a super modified he built in 1965.

George Gillespie – Innovator is the best word to describe George. A drag racer, hall of famer Rick Ferkel got Gillespie to attend a sprint car race and he was hooked. Gillespie helped innovate better sprint car engines. George also was one of the people responsible for bringing the “drag tire” to Ohio. George soon turned his attention to the suspension of sprint cars. He teamed up Laverne Nance and started designing sprint car chassis. George became very active in the racing shock absorber business, designing shocks and shock dynos. He established ProShocks, which is still around though he sold the business.

OWNERS

Chub Minier – One of the only ….if not THE only…car owners to bring three race cars to Fremont Speedway every week. Minier owned cars in the 1960s through the 1970s – those being the #R3. #R3sr. and #R3jr. with drivers George Pridemore, Mike Bogart and Jack Minier. The “R” in the numbers came from Red’s Place, a trucking business in Clyde. Minier’s cars were all equipped with Ford power under the hoods.

Chuck Miller – In high school Chuck’s interest in automotive mechanics began and it turned into a lifelong passion. From his little shop in Tiffin, Ohio Chuck built and owned sprint cars for nearly 20 years. Chuck devoted his work earnings and all his personal time to his race cars. Miller’s #22 sprint cars carried drivers such as Fred Steinhouser and for 16 years (1979-1995) Larry Helms.

Sam and Joyce Reed – The husband and wife owned sprint cars driven by their son, Byron, beginning in 1989. The #5 sprint cars still compete at Fremont Speedway with Byron behind the wheel. The Reeds have recorded 36 feature wins at Fremont and seven sprint car championships – 2003, 2007, 2008, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017. The Reed family team also scored 3 Fremont Attica Sprint Title (FAST) championships in 2010, 2014 and 2015.

SPECIAL CONTRIBUTORS

Jerry Gabel – Jerry helped get the word out about the racing at Fremont Speedway, writing a weekly column for the local newspaper called “Around the Oval.” He and his wife kept all the statistics for Fremont Speedway for many years. Jerry even raced a car once.

Christina Roepke – Christina and her husband Jim “Smiley” Roepke began coming to Fremont Speedway shortly after the track opened in 1951. Jim was the track’s 1956 super modified champion and is in the Fremont Speedway Hall of Fame. The Roepke’s little garage in rural Gibsonburg held race cars for many years; not only their own but other drivers used their shop from time to time. Christina played host to many after-race parties and Sunday morning coffee sessions to discuss the previous night’s racing. Christina and Jim owned cars driven by many local drivers like Don Miller, Joe Keegan, Jimmy Leaser, Al Liskai, Jerry Nemire just to name a few. When Christina’s brother-in-law Jim Ford reopened Fremont Speedway in 2000, Christina went to work running and organizing the track concession stands. Christina can still be found today working the “Country Kitchen” concession in the track’s pits.

Ted Foster – Ted’s support of Fremont Speedway began when he was just 13 years old, riding in the wrecker with his dad to the track. By the time Ted turned 16, he was running the family-owned wrecker weekly at the track. Ted and his father helped build Fremont Speedway, putting the poles in for the track guardrails. Ted helped out on the track’s ambulance crew, drove the track’s pace car and even helped work the pit area for a couple of years. The Foster wrecker from Foster’s Auto Body called Fremont Speedway home for nearly 30 years.

CLASS OF 2021

DRIVERS

Scott Miller – Miller posted nine career wins at Fremont Speedway, all coming in the 305 sprint division though he competed in 410 sprints for many years. Miller jokes he would have had many 410 sprint wins at Fremont if it “weren’t for Mark Keegan.” Miller was the track’s 305 rookie of the year and raced from the 1990s through the early 2000s. Miller won the Fremont Speedway 305 Invitational in 2003.

Al Beale Sr. – Al was a dominant figure on the local racing scene who won more than 200 races in his career, including four career wins at Fremont Speedway. Soon after graduating from high school in 1953, Beale turned his first car, a 1952 Ford coupe, into a racing car. In 1960, he won the first race at Toledo Speedway, and also won the first track championship held here. In the 1950s, he and his brother, hall of fame driver Rollie won many championships. Al also won races on tracks in Wauseon, Sandusky, Mansfield, Adrian, and Jackson, Mich. Al also served as a race official with ARCA.

Dennis Filliater – Dennis was Fremont Speedway’s 1995 street stock champion and posted five career wins at Fremont Speedway. Filliater raced from 1986 through 2001 and was also Attica Raceway Park’s 1995 street stock champion. When the street stock division transitioned to the limited late models Dennis also ran in that division for several years.

MECHANICS

Tom Kistler – Tom’s love for racing began when he was just 12 years old, working at Fremont Speedway. His work on race cars began in the 1970s when he helped on Jim Keegan’s cars. Over the years Tom worked on cars for hall of famers Earl Lowe, Tim Sabo and for 15 years for driver Roy Sheets. Tom and his brother Paul owned late models driven by Jack Hewitt and later Tom worked on sprint cars driven by Butch Schroeder and hall of famer Mark Keegan. Tom said he worked on late models for 20 years and sprint cars for 10 years. During his career cars Tom worked on won numerous track championships and recorded many feature wins.

Joe West – Joe West owned and worked on race cars/trucks that competed at Fremont Speedway for 50 years. He worked on cars driven by hall of famers Wally Hemminger, Jim Fleming, Dale Hasselbach, and Lynn Potter. Later, when the dirt truck division was created Joe owned and worked on trucks driven by Dustin Keegan and Dana Fry. Race cars Joe worked on won many features over the years.

OWNERS

Dwight Reidling – Dwight began his career in sprint cars in 1965 after being introduced to the sport by his brother. He was a mechanic for a friend and later purchased his own car. After more than 10 years as an owner and chief mechanic he put his tools away to help raise his family. In 1991 with his children grown, Dwight returned owning and campaigning a car with his brother, Raymond and friends, Ronald Antoszewski, Howard Stone and Frank Cherry until 2002. Dwight helped the driving careers of Phil Gressman, Tim Shaffer and a host of other drivers. Dwight designed and built a machine for making gutters and began working out of his home, later created and owned Metal Pro Manufacturing in the early 1980s, running his successful business for nearly 30 years.

Sam Stites – Sam’s beautiful sprint cars began racing in the 1970s with hall of famer Harold McGilton behind the wheel. The iconic yellow and purple #81 visited victory lane on many occasions and won several track championships. Sam’s Stites Tank and Bridge sprint car won the 1975 Little 500 with hall of famer Daryl Harrison behind the wheel. Stites also sponsored a late model driven by hall of famer Roy Sheets.

SPECIAL CONTRIBUTOR

Howard Halbeisen – Howard was an avid racing enthusiast that loved being at the track. Howard worked as a pit steward for around 27 years, starting when the Stelter’s were running the speedway in the mid 1950s. He was the runner, taking race line ups from the scoring tower back to the pits to place on the line up board. As time progressed and things modernized Howard eventually worked out of the pit tower setting up the race lineups after receiving word from the scoring tower. Howard also would help line up cars for each race and provide fuel to racers as needed. His love of Fremont Speedway was passed on to all seven of his children. His son, Terry, is very active in the Fremont Speedway Hall of Fame and North Coast Vintage Racers. The rest of the family to this day stays involved in racing by helping with 50/50 drawings or going to and supporting racing at Fremont Speedway.

Sprint Car Speedweek Finale to be Held at Tri-City Raceway Park
(Franklin, PA June 2, 2021): One of the most anticipated events of the season will take place this Sunday at Tri-City Raceway Park: the return of Western Pennsylvania Speedweek. More than twenty years ago, Western PA Speedweek was a highlight of the 410 Sprint Car racing season, but times changed the racing calendars and the series slipped away. Resuming the tradition was the brainchild of a former Tri-City official, Tyler Beichner. Unfortunately, the opening round was rained out, so there will now be three consecutive races on different tracks before the finale at Tri-City.
Western PA Speedweek will bring all of the region’s top 410 Sprint Car talent together with anybody and everybody who wants to throw down against the best we have to offer. We know that one visitor will be Josh Baughman, who came in from Odessa, TX, to challenge the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Car racers in preparation for this event. Central PA racers Ryan Smith and Bradley Howard are confirmed entries as well. With no 410 Sprint Car racing to the west, will any Ohio drivers cross the border in search of a good payday? You have to be there to see for yourself who else will invade Tri-City!
The local contingent will be well represented, of course. Jack Sodeman, Jr. already has two wins at Tri-City this season. Bob Felmlee just registered his best finish in his return to the 410 Sprints, as did Brandon Matus. His father, Brent Matus, has been a model of consistency. Kyle Colwell will bring his 360 Sprint Car to challenge the more powerful 410s and he will hold his own for sure.
A banner field of 410 Sprints will be on hand for this special event that will pay $3,000 to the winner!
Joining the 410 Sprint Cars will be the RUSH Sprints. These cars are powered by GM 602 Crate Engines and they race without wings. Other measures, like spec shocks and uniform fuel help to keep the costs in check. But there is no skimping on the excitement! Chad Ruhlman drove the car owned by Franklin’s own Tim Engles to victory when the division made its season debut under the twin banners of Gary Glass Automotive and Washington House. He will be back to get another win against the likes of former track champion Rod George, Gale Ruth, Jr., Arnie Kent, and many more.
The Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds will also race this Sunday. Jimmy Holden, a top competitor in the division, just grabbed his first win of the season. Jeremiah Shingledecker and Kevin Hoffman have also scored wins at Tri-City. Will Kyle Fink break through? The defending track champion is winless so far in 2021. So is Lonny Riggs, who just had an outstanding run. Sid Unverzagt, Jr. also had a fine outing last week and he is looking to build upon that recent success. More than a dozen other racers are expected. Come on out to see who else can hold the checkered flag!
The 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks will complete the card this Sunday. Dalton Speer and Justin Bailey will go head to head once again, but there will be nearly two dozen others who will try to keep them at bay.
Despite the notoriety of Speedweek, regular event ticket pricing will apply. So, adults will be admitted to Tri-City Raceway Park for $15. Seniors (ages 62 and above) will be admitted for $13. Students (ages 11 through 16) will be admitted for $10. Children (ages 10 and under) will be free. The economical Family Pass will be available for this show, too. That will be $45 and it will benefit two adults of any age and two students. Pit Passes will be $30.
The pit gates will open at 2 p.m. and the spectator gates will open at 4 p.m. Racing will begin at 6 p.m. Come out early to get your favorite seats.
Additional information about Tri-City Raceway Park can be obtained by calling the track office at 724-967-4601, or by e-mail to tricityracewaypark2020@gmail.com. You can also check the website at Tri-CityRacewayPark.com, or Facebook at Tri City Raceway Park. Tri-City Raceway Park is located at 3430 State Route 417, in Oakland Township. That is just a few miles outside the city of Franklin.

WINGED SPRINT CARS RETURN TO INDY SPEEDROME AFTER 21 YEAR ABSENCE

May 3, 2021 – Winged sprint cars are set to return to the Indianapolis Speedrome this weekend for the first time since 2000. It will be only the second time in the history of the iconic Indianapolis southeast side 1/5-mile oval that sprint cars have competed.

The Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro will headline two consecutive nights of racing this weekend June 4-5 as part of the inaugural “Indyana Shutout”. The Saturday night finale will be highlighted by a 100-lap feature event.

The last time winged sprint cars competed at the Indianapolis Speedrome was August 11, 2000. Gary Fedewa won the 100-lap feature over Rick Holley and Mike Ling. It was an entertaining affair that saw Fedewa come from the eighth starting position to claim the win with a late race pass of Holley.

Current Indianapolis Speedrome Late Model points leader and 2019 World Figure 8 champion Eddie VanMeter announced on Tuesday afternoon that he will compete in this event. It will be VanMeter’s first foray in a sprint car. He will be aboard the Mike Blake owned orange #81 Dynamite chassis.

Most of the Must See Racing regulars are expected to compete including last weekend’s American Speed U.S. Nationals winner Jimmy McCune. Early 2021 MSR feature winner Joe Liguori will also be in competition and has announced he will be pulling double-duty. Liguori will also compete in a school bus figure 8.
Former drivers who competed in that long ago 2000 event are also expected to compete including Jeff Bloom and Holley.

Besides the 100-lap finale on Saturday night, the “Rumble for the Record” presented by EDCO Welding will also be on tap. Winged sprint cars and winged late models will go head-to-head in a speed trials qualifying format to break the track record. Bragging rights and a $5,000 payday will be on the line as to which car is ultimately the fastest type of car to grace the Indianapolis Speedrome asphalt.

The weekends activities will also include Street Stocks, Junior Fast Karts, Champ Karts, and USS Kenyon Midgets. For those unable to attend the race will be streamed on www.Speedrome.tv.

Henderson and Sandvig Racing Continue Successful Season at Huset's With Third-Place Finish on Memorial Day

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 3, 2021) - Justin Henderson scored a weekend-best third-place finish aboard the Mike Sandvig Racing No. 7 on Monday night during the Ben Nothdurft Memorial at Huset's Speedway.

The podium finish capped a three-race weekend filled with bad luck that saw the team finish 16th at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday before a disappointing DNF on Sunday at Huset's Speedway.

"I was already kind of bummed as I planned to race my 360 on Friday and it rained and it kind of seemed to steamroll from there," Henderson said. "Things just didn't go our way all weekend and luckily we came out of it with a podium. With how well we've been running I guess we were due for a weekend like this, but overall it was just disappointing."

Henderson kicked off the weekend on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway, where he qualified 16th quickest out of 31 drivers with a lap of 15.573 seconds. As a result of a dropped cylinder, the team changed the engine following time trials. Henderson then won a heat race from the pole position to lock himself into the A Main.

He lined up for the feature in the 11th starting position and after a caution on Lap 6 he was running seventh. Following a return to green-flag action, Henderson was battling for fifth when he and another driver made contact. The result was a blown left rear tire. Henderson rejoined the field and was able to climb back to 16th.

"We burned down a motor in qualifying and it really didn't do us any favors in time trials," he said. "We luckily got it changed and got the heat win and we were actually moving forward until we got taken out. We worked our tails off to be in that position and to see it go away like that really was a bummer."

Henderson, who was looking to earn his third consecutive victory at Huset's Speedway on Sunday, began the night by timing in third quickest in his time trial flight with a lap of 10.829 seconds. He then finished fourth in a heat race to earn a spot into the feature redraw.

Henderson drew the No. 7 starting spot for the feature and looked to be in line for another solid finish when he hit a rut in turn three and crashed to end his night early. The DNF was his first of the 2021 racing season.

"I felt like if I hadn't crashed we had a car that was capable of contending for the win," he said. "We were not the only car who hit that rut, but ultimately it ended our night early and cost us a shot at a win and that's never fun."

Henderson returned to the South Dakota oval on Monday with a back-up car looking for redemption. He qualified eighth quickest in his group with a lap of 12.778 seconds. Henderson then won a heat race from the pole position to earn a spot in the redraw for the second consecutive night.

This time he pulled the No. 2 and lined up on the outside of the front row for the feature. Henderson jumped to the lead at the drop of the green flag. He led the opening 20 laps of the feature before dropping a spot following a restart. He fell one more position to round out the podium for his sixth top-five finish of the season.

"The car we rolled out isn't exactly suited for Huset's in terms of setup and such, so to be in contention like that was really a surprise and a good thing," he said. "On the other hand, when you lead that many laps and see a win slip away it's tough to be happy with a third-place finish. We made do with what we had and turned a difficult weekend into a small positive."

Henderson and Sandvig will again head to Knoxville Raceway this Saturday and Huset's Speedway on Sunday for two nights of racing this weekend. He enters the weekend second in the points standings at Knoxville Raceway by only 17 markers and sits third at Huset's Speedway by a mere 14 points.

"The weather forecast is calling for a hot weekend and I love racing when it's like that," he said. "You've really got to be prepared for when the weather gets hot like that for late in the night as it can really take a toll on you in the cockpit. I keep myself in good shape and condition for nights like this and I'm looking forward to making it count and getting our points leads back after a rough weekend."

Gravel Invading Huset's Speedway Sunday During I-29 RV SuperCenter Night

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 3, 2021) - Big Game Motorsports driver David Gravel is heading to Huset's Speedway this Sunday in preparation for THE SHOWDOWN.

Gravel will turn his first laps of the season at the high-banked dirt oval during I-29 RV SuperCenter Night featuring the Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig, the Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks and the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series.

"We can test all we want, but nothing is going to simulate a race night," Gravel said. "We're doing it to support Huset's Speedway and all of Tod Quiring's people and hopefully we can get a win in preparation for THE SHOWDOWN. I've finished on the podium lots of times over the years there with the All Stars and Outlaws. We want to go there and try to get a win, but more importantly have a good showing for Tod and our partners."

Gravel is among a long list of stout drivers who will be favorites throughout THE SHOWDOWN, which begins on June 20 with the $6,000-to-win Chuck Zitterich Tribute at Huset's Speedway. The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series invades the track on June 21-22 for the Huset's 50, which pays $30,000 to win the finale.

Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., which is a short drive east, welcomes the World of Outlaws June 24-26 for the 43rd annual AGCO Jackson Nationals. That event finale is $50,000 to win with a staggering $100,000 bonus going to any driver who wins both the Huset's 50 and AGCO Jackson Nationals finales. That would create a payout of an eye-popping $180,000.

All five World of Outlaws nights will pay at least $10,000 to win and $1,000 to start.

"It's going to be a big car count and a lot of fans will show up," Gravel said of THE SHOWDOWN. "It will be tough competition. Anything that pays over $20,000 to win is something you want to win. It's extra special we're racing with Tod's team with Huset's Speedway and THE SHOWDOWN on the wing. There's a lot of emphasis on that week and were going to try our best to perform well."

Individual nightly tickets and packages for each track are available with the best savings being a five-day ticket. Ticket links are up at http://www.HusetsSpeedway.com or http://www.JacksonMotorplex.com . Click on the "Buy Tickets" tab in the upper right of either website to be directed to where tickets can be purchased.

This Sunday the pits open at 3 p.m. and the main gates at 4:30 p.m. at Huset's Speedway. Hot laps start the program at 7:30 p.m. with racing to follow.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $10 for students ages 13-years-old to 18-years old each night and free to children 12-years-old and younger each night. Additionally, fans can upgrade tickets to the Turn One Suite for just $20.

Ramey Rallies From 21st to 12th During ASCS National Tour Race at Lake Ozark Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (June 3, 2021) - Gunner Ramey raced on back-to-back nights with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour during Memorial Day Weekend at Lake Ozark Speedway, where he closed the inaugural Sprint and Midget Memorial Nationals presented by The Drivers Project with a solid charge forward.

Ramey put together a qualifying lap of 12.542 seconds to post the 12 th fastest time of the 45 drivers who qualified during Saturday's opener. He finished second in his heat race to make the night's dash. Fortune was on the Terry Doogs Racing driver's side as he drew the No. 1. He maintained that position to earn the pole for the main event.

"We were super fast all night," he said.

Ramey led several laps and spent the majority of the feature in the top five. With less than 10 laps remaining, the wing mount atop the car broke and Ramey was forced to pull off the track, relegating him to a DNF and 20 th-place finish.

"We weren't going to win, but we were going to finish inside the top five for sure," he said. "It was a heartbreaker, but everyone knew we were there. We had the speed to contend."

On Sunday, Ramey timed in 17th quickest and finished sixth in his heat race to narrowly miss locking into the main event. That put him on the pole for the B Main. Ramey maintained the view at the front of the field to garner the win to transfer through to the $10,000-to-win main event. Ramey then hustled from 21st to 12th on the challenging track.

"Overall, even though we had an unfortunate DNF on Saturday, I'm really happy with the speed we showed," he said. "It was a stout field both nights and to have the kind of speed we did does a lot for my confidence as a driver."

Next on the calendar for Ramey is an ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Warrior Region race this Saturday at Legit Speedway Park in West Plains, Mo.

"I'm really confident we can go and contend for a win there, a top five at the minimum," he said.

Ramey has made one career start at Legit Speedway Park, where he finished 11th last season.

Parrow Powers To Second-Straight CRSA Sprints Victory at Weedsport

(WEEDSPORT, NY) – For the first time since 2019, the Weedsport Speedway was open to fans for a night of Memorial Day Weekend racing and the fans turned out in droves to support the Heroes Remembered 100 event. The Super Gen Products with Champion Power Equipment CRSA Sprints were first on the feature card and set the table in a big way for the Big Block Modified fans awaiting the Modified 100-lapper.

CRSA Rookie and Weedsport Kartway graduate Jordan Hutton brought the field to Dave Farney’s green flag for the 25-lap A-Main. Hutton would lead the first ten laps of his CRSA Sprints career but was being quickly chased down by 9-time CRSA Sprints winner and defending Series Champion Darryl Ruggles.

On a Lap 10 restart it would be Ruggles who got alongside Hutton and would officially take the top spot as the field completed Lap 11. This would set up one of the most intense battles for the race lead that has been logged in some time in CRSA competition.

Trombley made a big move for the lead to take the top spot at the halfway mark on Lap 13. On that same lap, Land of Legends Raceway Round 2 winner Bobby Parrow had scratched his way from the tenth starting spot to a podium spot in third.

Ruggles would fight back at Trombley and make a slide job pay off in Turn 3 to regain the lead on Lap 16. Trombley wasn’t done battling, but while trying to work the top side caught the outside concrete wall in Turn 1 and ended his night on the seventeenth lap.

This gave Parrow a crack at the race lead and he took it with a huge slider on Ruggles to lead Lap 20 and sent the frontstretch fans at Weedsport into a frenzy. They again stood as Parrow clipped the Turn 1 wall- handing the lead back to Ruggles who would lead Lap 21.

But slower traffic would set up one of the many exciting moves of the race on that same lap. Ruggles while leading went to the outside of Hank Katz entering Turn 3- opening the door down low for Parrow. Parrow dove down low, splitting the slower Katz and Ruggles three-wide, and slid his Tom Fletcher-owned No. 53 all the way to the top in front of Ruggles to again regain the lead on Lap 22.

The race was slowed on Lap 23 for a spinning Dan Craun in Turn 4. The red was displayed on the restart as Dana Wagner got upside down after making contact of his own with the Turns 1 & 2 outside wall. Wagner was uninjured but the same could not be said for the Hardwood Hills Golf Course No. 25W.

After pushing off from the red flag delay, Parrow held off Ruggles over the final two laps to score his second career and second-straight CRSA Series victory. It was Parrow’s first trip to Victory Lane at Weedsport since July 5, 1992 when he won the A-Main with the Empire Super Sprints 360 sprint cars. Ruggles, Dalton Herrick with his second podium in three races was third, the impressive rookie Hutton fourth and an impressive drive from another former go-kart champion Chase Moran completing the Top 5.

“The track came to us, we kept playing with the car all night and kept getting quicker and quicker,” noted Parrow who had to start from twelfth per CRSA rules but started tenth due to other redraw cars dropping out prior to the A-Main.

It would be slower traffic ahead of the leaders that gave Parrow a ray of hope while battling Ruggles for the top spot.

“Lapped traffic helped a lot, it was really good for us. Thanks to Tom Fletcher as we are a low budget team out here.”

Ruggles had a fast car and was trying to keep the CRSA record books at Weedsport with only his name in them following a win in 2019. He would fall one spot short.

“That was a great race up front (with Bobby) and Jeff. We mixed it up quite a bit. I think I was just a little too tight. Congrats to Bobby, they’ve been on a roll lately.”

Dalton Herrick was again strong, scoring his second podium finish in three races (Penn Can, Weedsport).

“We were just a little too tight to start on the top and had to wait for the car to come to us. As the race went on it just got better and better.”

Next on the schedule for the Super Gen Products CRSA 305 Sprints is a trip to the Fonda Speedway on Saturday June 5. Promoter Brett Deyo has done wonders to the facility located on the property of the Fonda Fairgrounds and CRSA is thrilled to make their return to “The Track of Champions.” Weekly sanctioned 305 Sprint Car racing at Land of Legends Raceway will take the night off in support of the series show at Fonda.

Alex Pokorski savors first
Plymouth A-main run of 2021

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 1, 2021 – In his second season behind the wheel of a 360 Sprint Car, Alex Pokorski’s goal has been to consistently qualify for A-main competition.

In his fifth night in the seat of the No. 4 Pokorski Motorsports 360 Sprint Car of the 2021 season, Alex Pokorski found his way into the 25-lap Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car A main on a night when a Midwest Sprint Car Association season-high 37 cars signed in at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, May 29.

After lining up sixth in the third 10-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car heat race, Pokorski held the sixth spot until lap seven when he ducked under Josh Teunissen to secure fifth, which is where he finished.

Pokorski then lined up on the outside of the front row of the first 12-lap 360 Sprint Car B main alongside Tony Wondra needing a top-three finish to advance to the A main. Pokorski moved past Wondra to settle into second on the opening lap behind race leader Tim Haddy. After two caution flags for spins slowed the pace on lap 3, Justin Miller slipped past Pokorski on lap 4 to move the West Bend driver to third.

In the waning laps, Waldo’s Chris Clayton mounted a charge along the high groove to pressure Pokorski for third. However, Pokorski nipped Clayton at the finish to secure his first A main berth of the season at Plymouth.

After starting 21st in the 25-lap PDTR 360 Sprint A main, Pokorski dropped to 22nd at the start before moving underneath Austin Hartmann to take 21st on lap 14. Pokorski then switched to the high groove to pressure Scott Conger for 20th on lap 15 before slowing to a stop in turn two to bring out a yellow flag when a large piece of mud struck the car and shut off the engine.

After the Pokorski Motorsports pit crew addressed the issue in the work area, Pokorski returned to move past Hartmann, Conger and Justin Erickson in the closing six laps to earn a 19th-place showing in his first PDTR 360 Sprint Car A main of the season, which was won by Ben Schmidt.

“The night was pretty fun because I got to race back and forth and get into the mix with others in each race,” Pokorski said. “The car felt good and the track was pretty racey the whole night. The B main was the closest finish I’ve ever had I think. Luckily, I was able to get the third spot and make the A main.

“Throughout the A main, I was learning to run the cushion, which I haven’t really done before,” he said. “I was a little unlucky when a big chunk of mud broke my dash and shut the car off, but we were able to restart and finish the race. It was a lot of fun racing with Scott Conger after the restart. I think we went back and forth for a good five or six laps.”

The Pokorski Motorsports team will return to The Plymouth Dirt Track .at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. with Alex Pokorski again slated to be behind the wheel as the PDTR 360 Sprint Cars will compete in conjunction with the annual appearance of the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions and Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series event on Saturday, June 5.

Pit gates at Plymouth open at 1 p.m., the grandstand opens at 3 p.m. for advance ticket holders and 4 p.m. for those purchasing tickets on the day of the race and on track action starting at 5:30 p.m.

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

WESTERN PA SPRINT SPEEDWEEK TO MAKE A STOP AT SHARON SATURDAY; RUSH SPRINTS RETURN ALONG WITH RUSH MODS & ECONO MODS

By Mike Leone

June 2, 2021

(Hartford, OH)…After the season's second cancellation last Saturday night, Sharon Speedway is ready to resume racing action this Saturday night (June 5) with warm and dry weather predicted as the 92nd anniversary season rolls on. The "Super Series" program will feature Western PA Speedweek for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars along with the Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars, HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and the Whelen Econo Mods on Buck's Fabricating and Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Night. Kids bike races will be held at intermission. Race time is 7 p.m.

Leading Saturday's program will be the "410" Sprint Cars in the return of Western PA Speedweek after a 20-year absence. Sharon will be stop number four of the five-night swing through western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. Each night will pay $3,000 to-win, $250 to-start. The fastest qualifier will receive $150 with a $200 hard charger award each night. There will also be a $7,500 point fund with $2,500 going to the champion paying down 10 positions presented by Schaeffer's Specialized Lubricants and Bova Excavating plus other perfect attendance awards.

Some 17 drivers have committed to running the entire Speedweek including Texan Josh Baughman, central Pennsylvania's Ryan Smith and Bradley Howard along with local stars Sye Lynch, A.J. Flick, Brandon Spithaler, Carl Bowser, Jack Sodeman, Jr., and others.

Sharon has hosted three ultra-successful "410" Sprint Car events in 2021. Justin Peck won the opener on May 1 sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions that paid $6,000, which attracted 41 cars. The May 15 show was non-sanctioned and saw George Hobaugh score his second career win, worth $3,000 and came over a 30-car field. The World of Outlaws returned to Sharon on May 22 after a 14-year absence and Dave Blaney captured the storybook $10,000 victory.

After an exciting win during the May 22 World of Outlaws program by 61-year-old Rod George, the non-wing Pace Performance RUSH Sprint Cars will return for their second appearances at Sharon presented by Terry Bowser Excavating. The RUSH Sprints have competed four times this year around the circuit with four different winners. Besides George, Gale Ruth, Jr., Chad Ruhlman, and Kevin Ruhlman have also been victorious.

There have been seven different RUSH Sprint Car winners in 10 races run all-time at Sharon. Still Chad Ruhlman, the 2018 and 2019 RUSH $5,000 champion, is the only driver with multiple victories at four. Chad is in search of his third $5,000 Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Championship in four years; however, currently Rod George sits atop the points chase.

The HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds return for their third show of the 2021 season. Drivers will not only be battling for Sharon points, but also the $3,500 to-win Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Weekly Series and the $1,000 to-win Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series Championship. Wolbert, who won the May 1 opener at Sharon, currently leads all three point standings. Garrett Krummert won the last time out for the RUSH Mods at Sharon on May 15. Justin Shea, who won at Pittsburgh on May 22, is second in all three points. If 24 or more cars are on hand, RUSH Mods will be competing for the $500 to-win increased payoff.

The Whelen Econo Mods will look to complete their third show on Saturday night. The Econo Mods were part of the opener back on April 24 when Dennis Lunger, Jr. made his first ever start in the division a successful one winning over 17th starting Jeremy Double, who is the division's all-time active leading winner at 14. Then on May 15 it was Will Thomas III capturing his first ever Econo Mod win in his first start with Double once again coming home in second. After two races, Double, who was the 2013 and 2014 champion, leads the way over cousins Nate and Jarrett Young. Veterans racers Andy Buckley and Butch Lambert, who have both run many divisions over the years, are fourth and fifth in the standings.

There is no Sharon registration fee. One-way driver radios are mandatory; channel 454.000. AMB/MyLaps transponders are required; rentals available for $25. If you have yet to register for the 2021 season, please bring the registration form with you completed http://www.sharonspeedway.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/RegistrationFormSharon2021.pdf

Bogucki Leads SawBlade.com Supported Team to Second Straight ASCS National Tour Win

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (June 2, 2021) - Scott Bogucki captured his second straight Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour triumph last Saturday during the opening night of the inaugural Sprint and Midget Nationals presented by The Drivers Project.

The SawBlade.com sponsored driver led the final nine laps of the 25-lap main event at Lake Ozark Speedway for his sixth career ASCS National Tour victory.

"We had the car great," he said. "We were a little snug early, but as the race went on we freed up. I was rolling and could go wherever I wanted. I could run the bottom. I could run the top. I could go from the bottom to the top. The car was amazing."

Bogucki qualified sixth quickest of the 46 drivers competing before a third-place finish in a heat race earned a spot into a dash. Bogucki finished where he started - second - to garner the outside front row starting spot for the A Main.

He faded a bit early, but came on strong during the middle of the race. Bogucki ripped around the tricky cushion and took the lead on Lap 17 before pulling away.

"It was a different format," he said. "I didn't mind it at all. I liked it a lot better than the conventional draw. We had a good race car all night. The track was kind of dirty and crumbly in the feature so you could keep the tires spinning so the ruts didn't bug me."

Momentum continued on Sunday during the event finale. Bogucki timed in seventh quickest, placed third in a heat race and advanced from sixth to fourth place in a dash to line up on the outside of the fourth row for the A Main.

He advanced early on the tricky track and was running third when he caught a rut in turns one and two. The result was a flip near the midpoint of the race, which was shortened from 40 laps to 30 laps. Bogucki was unable to resume the race and he was credited with a 18th-place result.

"I had a lapped car check up in front of me," he said. "I put the brake to the floorboard and the car dug in. There was no saving it. I tried. It was frustrating because at that point I was riding. I was more than happy with third and survival, looking at the big picture of championship points."

The next ASCS National Tour event is June 19-20 at Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash., for the Fred Brownfield Classic.

May 29 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Qualifying: 6; Heat race: 3 (3); Dash: 2 (2); Feature: 1 (2).

Skinner Hustles to Four Top 10s to Start USCS Speedweek

Inside Line Promotions - LEXINGTON, Tenn. (June 2, 2021) - Marshall Skinner recorded four top-10 finishes in as many nights of racing during the first weekend of the 16th annual USCS Sprint Car Speedweek.

"I passed a lot of cars each night except Sunday," said Skinner, who started 14th or worse in three of the four main events. "We had pretty good runs. We just didn't pass many cars in the heat races, which started us further back in the features.

"They haven't updated the Speedweek points, but we should be near the top. We ran well and rolled the car in the box every night. That's the main thing."

Speedweek opened last Friday at Greenville Speedway in Greenville, Miss., where Skinner advanced to a fifth-place finish after starting 16 th.

"The track at Greenville was rough due to a lot of rain; it was cowboy-up," he said. "I didn't want to tear my race car up and I was just trying to keep my nose clean. Some of the cars I passed were casualties, but it is what it is."

Skinner had a similar heat race result the following night at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark.

"Riverside started out the same as Friday," he said. "I started last in the heat race and passed one car. This time it put me starting fifth in the B Main at my home track. But I was able to make it happen in the B Main. The leader got a little timid in lapped traffic and I passed him and about four lapped cars in one corner.

"Then I started 16th in the A Main and finished fifth, just like the night before. But this time not many cars dropped out and I really raced my way forward."

The series moved on to Old No. 1 Speedway in Harrisburg, Ark., on Sunday night. Skinner started and finished third in his heat race before charging to an eighth-place finish in the feature after lining up 14th.

"The heat race in Harrisburg was pretty much one lane and I couldn't pass anyone," he said. "I felt I did pretty well in the feature to move up that much. The dirty air at that track makes it really tough to pass and the race went non-stop."

Monday night at Lexington 104 Speedway saw Skinner charge to a heat race win after starting fifth before he finished sixth in the A Main.

"Lexington was pretty tough to pass during the feature," he said. "I was in fifth and got bottled up when the guy in front of me checked up. I got over the cushion and that let Jordon Mallett by me, and I finished sixth."

Skinner appreciates the help he's received from a new crew member this season, particularly during four consecutive nights of racing at four different tracks.

"Walker Johnson started helping me this year and he's been a big help, especially last week," he said. "He's a good kid and picks up on things really quick."

Skinner plans to close out the Speedweek schedule this weekend with races at North Alabama Speedway in Tuscumbia, Ala., on Thursday; at Hattiesburg Speedway in Hattiesburg, Miss., on Friday; and at Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram, Miss., on Saturday.

QUICK RESULTS -

May 28 - Greenville Speedway in Greenville, Miss. - Heat race: 6 (7); Feature: 5 (16).

May 29 - Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. - Heat race: 7 (8); B Main: 1 (5); Feature: 5 (16).

Hagar Earns Trio of Top 10s During Busy Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - LEXINGTON, Tenn. (June 2, 2021) - Derek Hagar posted a pair of top 10s during Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition at Lake Ozark Speedway before he capped Memorial Day Weekend with another top-10 outing during a USCS Series national event.

Hagar finished seventh on Saturday before charging from 16th to sixth on Sunday during the inaugural Sprint and Midget Nationals presented by The Drivers Project.

"I feel pretty good about coming out of Lake Ozark without a torn up race car," he said. "It sucks for everybody because it wasn't a great race and was hard on equipment. We had to survive and get what you could get."

The weekend started on Saturday with Hagar qualifying seventh quickest out of 46 drivers. He then won a heat race to advance into a dash. A fifth-place run in the dash lined him up on the inside of the third row for the main event.

"We were a little too free, but I was scared to tighten it up because of the ruts," he said. "We fell back a couple of positions in the feature. We could have changed some things on the car to make it better, but it was one of those deals where I was trying not to tear the car up."

Hagar followed his seventh-place run by qualifying 18th quickest on Sunday. A fourth-place finish in a heat race locked him into the 16 th starting position for the A Main.

"We didn't qualify very well," he said. "We made it through the heat, but we didn't make a dash so we started toward the back. It took us forever to get the feature started. I think I was running 11th before we completed a lap. We just held on. The race track started going away and the car came to me toward the end. We closed in on fifth place, but ran out of time. Overall it was a success coming out of there without anything torn up."

Hagar was patient and avoided the ruts en route to the sixth-place finish, which was his seventh top 10 of the season.

He then headed to Lexington 104 Speedway for a USCS Series Speedweek show. Hagar advanced from fifth to third place in a heat race and from 10 th to seventh place in the main event.

"It was a last-minute deal to run there," he said. "It was drive six hours home or drive six hours and get to race.

"Track position is key there. You pretty much finish where you start, but it was a successful night. Everything rolled in the box and we were able to get it ready to race this weekend."

Hagar returns to action this Saturday at Legit Speedway Park in West Plains, Mo., with the ASCS Warrior Region and ASCS Mid-South Region.

"I've ran an ASCS National Tour show there, but it's probably been 10 to 15 years ago," he said. "I want to say we had a top-five run. It was a good night. I remember the track was slick with real tight corners. If it's like that it will fit our driving style."

QUICK RESULTS -

May 29 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 1 (2); Dash: 5 (4); Feature: 7 (5).

May 30 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Qualifying: 18; Heat race: 4 (1); Feature: 6 (16).

Dover Records Best 410 Sprint Car Result Since 2014 With Podium at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 2, 2021) - Jack Dover highlighted a three-race weekend with a charge from 17th to third last Sunday at Huset's Speedway.

It was his career-best 410ci winged sprint car finish at the dirt oval and his best result in 410 competition since a second-place showing in August 2014.

"There were a lot of good drivers there," Dover said. "I don't do the 410 deal a lot so to go from 17th to third with that caliber of competition was a great deal."

Dover, who was driving for Rick and Chris Bowers, qualified ninth quickest to open the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association event on Sunday. A fifth-place finish locked him into the 17th starting spot in the A Main.

"Patience was key," he said. "We had a good setup. I ran the bottom the whole race. On the last restart we got around Carson McCarl for second on the bottom. He had the momentum on the top and got back around us. Once he did that we moved up and my car was actually better. The bottom was pretty good, but it started to go away there at the end. Once we moved up the last three or four laps our car was pretty good. Even if we had to be up there the whole race we could have made some moves."

Dover's third-place result was his fifth podium of the season and earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

He opened the weekend in his own car the previous night at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, where Dover qualified 14th quickest. He won a heat race with a last-lap pass to secure the ninth starting spot in the main event.

"We found some old notes from last year at Knoxville from a night that was really good," he said. "We put those on the setup and the car felt really good. There's a couple of little things we'll change next time. The car got better later in the feature. I think a lot of it was fuel load. That's something we've discussed, to be better at the beginning of the race and still have something at the end."

Dover maneuvered to a sixth-place result, which was his best outing of the season at the track.

Following Sunday's stout performance, Dover wrapped up Memorial Day Weekend on Monday at Huset's Speedway. He qualified a season-best third and finished fourth in a heat race. Dover closed the night with a 12 th-place result in the A Main, which was his first time of finishing outside of the top 10 in five races at Huset's Speedway this year.

"We struggled all night," he said. "We qualified well finally and tried some things. They went out and reworked the track before the heat race and there wasn't a lot of passing. Come feature-time we didn't have the stagger we needed. We winged it and hoped for the best. I couldn't get the car to rotate the corner like I needed to."

Dover plans to race this Friday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb.; Saturday at Off Road Speedway in Norfolk, Neb., with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series; and Sunday at Huset's Speedway.

QUICK RESULTS -

May 29 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 14; Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 6 (9).

May 30 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 9; Heat race: 5 (5); Feature: 3 (17).

Starks Produces Back-to-Back Top 10s at Skagit Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ALGER, Wash. (June 1, 2021) - Trey Starks has earned a top-10 finish during each of his two recent visits to Skagit Speedway.

More importantly, Starks has been in contention to win each night before a mishap dropped him in the results.

"We've been good; just haven't been able to execute," he said. "We have been really fast, but have run into issues, mostly self-inflicted. I'm not satisfied with running second so I'd rather have speed and a chance to win and not win than to not be in that position."

Starks made his season debut in his family owned No. 55 on May 22. He qualified third quickest and won a heat race from third. That lined Starks up fourth for the A Main.

"I was running second the whole time," he said. "I saw my opportunity and the gap closed up. We ended up getting into a lapped car so we had to go to the back. We passed a couple right at the end to get back to seventh."

Starks returned to the dirt oval last Saturday when he set quick time during qualifying and advanced from fourth to second in a heat race. He started the A Main on the pole and led until a restart with two laps remaining.

"I made the wrong decision on a restart and was too predictable," he said. "It was a good race to run second. There was a lot of lapped traffic. The guys behind me could choose to go where I didn't go. The same thing happened on the restart. I tried to keep my car straight and my speed up around the top. I left the door open for a slider. I crossed over and got pinched and didn't get him. Then I got a big run around the top in turns one and two. He protected going into turn three. I got up on the infield a little, which upset the car and we spun out. I was trying too hard to win on the last corner and got into the infield a little and that's all it took."

Starks was credited with a 10th-place result.

"We're trying to tune in for Dirt Cup," he said. "The car speed has been really good. We have a few tweaks to make to race a little better. Our speed in open track is really good, but we need a little when we are behind cars.

"The track was a little different each night so I think we've seen variety and had speed at both of them, which is good."

Starks plans to race this Saturday at either Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash., or at Skagit Speedway.

QUICK RESULTS -

May 22 - Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 1 (3); Feature: 7 (4).

Hill Overcomes Challenges to Finish 11th at Lake Ozark Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (June 1, 2021) - Alex Hill fought a challenging track and a damaged race car to post an 11th-place finish on Sunday night at Lake Ozark Speedway.

"It was something else," she said in reference to the rough track that caused multiple crashes throughout the evening. "I was mainly glad just to finish."

The Hill's Racing Team driver's night got off to a solid start when she timed in fifth quickest out of 39 drivers competing in the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event. She followed that up with a fourth-place finish in her heat race and was fifth to the checkered in her dash.

"We were really happy to qualify well, especially since we had problems with the car the night before and didn't get to qualify," she said. "I just mainly needed to finish in the top five in the heat race to make it to the dash. I was running fourth in the dash until Scott Bogucki slid me on the last lap."

Hill lined up 10th for the weekend's main event that played out on a treacherous surface.

"I was able to get up to fifth about halfway through, mainly because the cars in front of us were crashing," she said. "I just ran the bottom. There was no way I was going to the top of that track. That's where everyone was crashing.

"On one of the restarts I timed it wrong and got on the gas too early and my throttle hung up a little bit. I got into the back of Dylan (Westbrook) and damaged the nose wing. About 10 laps later the nose wing collapsed and after that my car was way too tight. I was just holding on at that point. I dropped back a bit and finished 11th."

Friday's opening night of the doubleheader got off to a bad start for Hill and placed her in a deep hole from which she was unable to recover.

"We had an issue with the fueling in qualifying and didn't get a time so we had to start pretty much at the back for the rest of our races," she said.

Hill started and finished eighth in her heat race before advancing from sixth to third in the C Main to transfer to the back of the B Main.

"There were 16 cars in the B Main and that makes it really hard to make it to a transfer spot," she said. "I should've pulled in after a while.

"I was just running my race when I got lapped by the first-place car. Then I got monster-trucked by the second-place car. He ran over my front end, which sent my car backwards up the track and I got hit by another car. I didn't flip, but it did a lot of damage to our car, including the frame."

The incident was an even greater issue for the team since they didn't have a back-up car for the next day's race.

"I just want to give a shoutout to Flea Ruzic, who fixed our frame for us," she said. "I didn't get to see it, but the guys said the way he repaired it was pretty amazing."

Hill's team will take a brief break from racing as they regroup from a recent rash of crashes that have left them without a back-up car and many spare parts.

"We're going to take a couple of weeks off so we can get caught up with the cars and parts," she said. "We won't miss any ASCS races. We plan to be back for the next one in Elma, Wash., on June 19-20."

Sean Becker Lands Back on SCCT Podium

PETERSEN MEDIA- Putting a couple of mechanical failures during the last two SCCT races behind him, Sean Becker was back on the podium with the series on Sunday night as he picked up a third-place finish aboard the Dan Monhoff owned No. 35 machine at Marysville Raceway.

“We had great speed all night,” Sean Becker said. “We just narrowly missed out on the overall quick time, but it put us in position to win our heat and be up front all night.”

A total of 30 cars checked in for the annual Mel and Marlyn Hall Memorial event at Marysville Raceway and Becker would time in second fastest overall and second fastest in his heat race group.

Lining up on the front row of his heat, Becker would get off to a picture-perfect start in heat race competition as he jumped out to the early lead and never looked back. Picking up the win, Becker advanced into the 35-lap feature event and made his way into the High Sierra Industries Dash.

Pulling the seven pill for the Dash line up, Becker would finish eighth and find himself in the fourth row to kick off the 35-lap ‘A’ Main.

On a very hooked up and fast Marysville Raceway surface, Becker would do a nice job of passing some very strong cars as he worked his way into third. Once in third, Becker would close on the lead duo of Colby Copeland and Andy Forsberg as the battle for the lead heated up.

As the trio of drivers began to hook up in a very spirited the battle, a couple of stoppages would interrupt the battle, and take the leaders out of traffic.

When the race was able to get back into a green flag run, Becker would hook up in a very hotly contested battle with longtime friend, and rival on the track, Andy Forsberg.

The duo would throw down a very torrid battle for the runner up position before Becker would settle into third as Forsberg cleared him.

Getting into traffic in the closing laps, Becker would close back in on the duo, but time would run out as he capped his night off with a third-place finish.

“We passed some really good cars in the feature and had a couple of great battles inside the Top-Three,” Becker added. “We are really fast, we have had some bad luck, but I know we are knocking on the door at our first win this year.”

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-21, Wins-0, Top 5’s- 4, Top-10’s- 10

ON TAP: Becker is slated to return to racing action on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

Forsberg Finds Victory Lane With Sprint Car Challenge Tour Sunday Night

PETERSEN MEDIA- Figuring out some things that ailed them over the last month, F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg put together a very strong Sunday night at Marysville Raceway as Forsberg picked up the Mel and Marlyn Hall Memorial win, the team’s first in 2021 with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

“We had kind of been in a funk for the better part of the season so far, but the guys have really done a great job of identifying some issues, changing some things, and we have really seen some differences as of late,” Forsberg said. “The track was super-fast, and tough make up ground on, so to come from sixth and get a win like that is pretty cool, and a shot in the arm we all needed.”

With 30 cars checked in for the annual Memorial Day Weekend event, Forsberg would just narrowly miss out on quick time honors in his group as he ended up second aboard the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed entry.

Racing his way to a win in his heat race, the Auburn, CA driver would earn a spot in the High Sierra Industries Dash, though the eight pill lined him up last on the starting grid. Able to make a couple of moves in the Dash, Forsberg’s sixth place finish would better his feature event starting position a row as he took the green flag from the third row.

Getting a great jump, Forsberg would go from sixth to third in the first lap as he chased after early leader, Colby Copeland, and second running Tyler Thompson. The 2020 Marysville Raceway Track Champion had his elbows up on this night as he worked into the second position on the seventh lap and went to work on reeling Copeland in amidst thick traffic.

As they got into traffic, the action would heat up as Sean Becker entered the frey and made it a three-horse battle for the top spot until the red flag was needed on the 14th lap.

The ensuing restart would see Copeland get away quickly, but a red on the 16th lap would bunch the field back up.

Finally, back underway, Copeland would get away from Forsberg as he set a very torrid pace out front. While Forsberg looked to chase him down, the battle for second with Becker would heat up. Finally able to clear Becker, Forsberg would begin to track Copeland back down as traffic loomed, but time was running out.

With five laps to go, Copeland would find himself behind a pair of cars and Forsberg would erase his sizeable lead.

As they got alongside Copeland on a pair of occasions, he would get underneath him in turns three and four as he took the lead coming to the white.

Able to fend off a last lap charge, Forsberg would snag the win, giving him his fifth Mel and Marlyn Memorial win over the course of his storied career.

“This race really means so much to me with the Hall family and everything they did up in Grass Valley, and me getting my start up there back in 1992,” Forsberg said. “the F&F guys are really happy to be back in victory lane, and hopefully we can keep this rolling as we get into some more big races coming up.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

ON TAP: F&F Racing will be back in action on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-15, Wins-2, Top 5’s-7, Top 10’s-10.

Fifteen-year-old Joel Myers Jr. brings the Thompson’s Winged 360 Sprint Car point lead into the seventh race of the season on Saturday. The Sebastopol driver maintains a 25-lap point lead over seven-time track champ Andy Forsberg, who goes into the event with momentum following a win this past Sunday in Marysville. The Auburn veteran will now be gunning to pocket his first Placerville triumph since September of 2019 this weekend.

The last few years has seen Placerville Speedway feature a heavy mix of both youth and veterans competing on any given week. Now the championship fight includes that caveat as well.

Tanner Carrick Hangs on To Finish 11th with Sprint Car Challenge Tour

PETERSEN MEDIA: Despite feeling something heading south at the end of Sunday’s race under the hood of his car, Tanner Carrick was able to hang on to finish 11th, and keep his Sprint Car Challenge Tour Championship hopes alive.

“We could have been a little better in qualifying, but the track was kind of sloppy and made it a little tricky,” Tanner Carrick said. “We were pretty good in the feature, but the last handful of laps I felt like something was heading south in a hurry, so I was happy to finish and hang on to an 11th place finish.”

30 cars checked into Marysville Raceway on Sunday night for the annual Mel and Marlyn Hall Memorial event. In what was the first ever visit to the facility for the Sprint Car Challenge Tour, Carrick got the night underway by timing the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83T entry in fourth fastest in a very tough group three.

Lining up in the second row for heat race action, the Lincoln, CA driver would battle with Shane Golobic before picking up a fourth-place finish and transferring directly into the 35-lap finale on a very hot May afternoon in Marysville, CA.

Taking the green flag from the 15th starting position, Carrick would slowly work his way forward on a surface that remained narrow all night long. Methodically working his way forward, Carrick would crack the Top-10 by the race’s halfway point.

Continuing to work his way forward, Carrick would get into the 9th spot by the 20th lap.

Running in ninth, Carrick’s charge would start to falter as he began to nice something going array in his car’s drivetrain. Doing what he could over the final 10-laps to get to the checkered flag, Carrick would lose a few positions, but was able to salvage the night with an 11th place finish.

“That was one of those nights where I was just happy to get us to the finish line,” Carrick said. “We fell back to third in points, but we still gained on the lead, and we are looking forward to seeing how this plays out.”

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 26, Wins: 2, Top 5’s: 12, Top 10’s: 18

Cox Secures Sprint Car Challenge Tour Top-10 as Point Chase Tightens

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting back to Sprint Car Challenge Tour competition on Sunday night at in Marysville, CA, Justyn Cox would pick up a seventh place finish, but more importantly jumped to within just four points of the series points lead.

“It wasn’t a fantastic night for us, and the track kind of threw us some curveballs, but in the big picture we made up a lot of points and we are sitting in a really good spot as he head into Placerville with the series in two weeks,” Justyn Cox said.

With 30 cars on hand for the series’ first ever visit to Marysville Raceway, Cox would time in third fastest in his qualifying group which would place him on the front row of his heat race.

When the heat race went green, Cox would settle into second as he chased after Max Mittry. Taking advantage of a Mittry miscue, Cox would take over the top spot and go on to pick up the win.

Moving into the Dash with the win, Cox would find himself with the five pill, and in the third row of the six-lap affair. Finishing fifth, Cox would take the green flag from the third row to get the 35-lap finale underway.

As the race went green, the Clarksburg, CA driver would slip back to ninth aboard the Berco Redwood/Barry Lumber, Inc./Lund Construction backed No. 7c machine.

On a track that was wet, tacky, and fast, passing would be tough at times, though Cox would do what he could to get his machine going forward. Able to pick up a couple of positions over the course of the fast paced race, Cox would close the night out with a seventh place finish, but would move back to second in the series point standings, just four points out of the lead.

“It was one of those nights where we were all just happy to get a solid finish, and have a good points night,” Cox added. “Thanks to Cody and all of the guys for their hard work, as well as to Cody and Mandi for continuing to let me drive their car this year. Looking forward to the next two weeks at Placerville.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Berco Redwood, Barry Lumber, Inc., Lund Construction, Anrak, Legacy Specialties, Inc. PT Shocks, Swartz Diesel, Alturas Tires, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

Ryan Robinson 5th with SCCT at Marysville Raceway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Checking in at Marysville Raceway on Saturday night looking to duplicate their success at the track form the 2020 season, Ryan Robinson and Weiher Racing would pick up a hard fought fifth place finish against the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

“As a team we were really confident heading into Sunday’s race at Marysville based on our previous success at the track,” Robinson said. “We timed in fourth in our qualifying group, which set us back a little, but the guys worked really hard, and we were able to move forward each time we hit the track after that.”

With 30 cars on hand for the fifth installment of the 2021 Sprint Car Challenge Tour Schedule, Robinson timed the Mako Farms, Inc./LP Holdings/Roseville Precision, Inc. backed No. 14w in fourth fastest in his qualifying group.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Robinson would need to grab the win for a chance to qualify for the Dash. Giving it his all on the hooked-up surface, Robinson would get into second, and though it wasn’t enough for the Dash it would transfer him directly into the 35-lap feature event.

Taking the green flag from the 11th starting position, Robinson would be up to the challenge of working his way through the field. After falling back to 13th when the race came to life, Robinson would quickly start moving the right direction as he cracked the Top-10 by the third lap.

Continuing to make things happen, the Roseville, CA pilot would work his way up to seventh before the first stoppage of the race came just before the race hit the halfway point.

Back underway, close quarters racing action would see Robinson slip back to 10th, but a couple of big moves would see him jump into seventh on the 17th lap.

Getting into fifth with 15-to-go, passing would become more difficult with much of the Top-5 spread out. Able to hang on to the spot as the laps wound down, Robinson would close a nice charge out with a fifth-place finish.

“We were really fast in the feature, we just needed to start a little further forward to have a better shot at it,” Robinson added. “Again, thanks to Todd and the guys for all their hard work on a pretty hot day to race in.”

Weiher Racing would like to thank Mako Farms, Inc., LP Holdings, Roseville Precision, Inc., Escalon Body and Frame, Seth’s Racing Engines, Papa Chuck, Dave Harvey Trucking, and Morrison Concrete for their support in 2021!

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-12, Wins-1, Top 5’s-4, Top 10’s-11

At this time, he is slated to pilot the Phulps Racing No. 56 entry on the 11th in Watsonville, CA before returning to the seat of the Weiher Racing entry on the 12th in Placerville, CA.

Kaleb Johnson Electric Early at Knoxville Raceway and Lake Ozark Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (June 1, 2021) - A pair of nights with a fast car and promising feature runs ended in disappointment for Kaleb Johnson last weekend.

"We've been fast almost every night lately, but our results haven't shown that," he said. "It's just been some little things that have kept us from putting a full night together. I'm sure it'll all come together soon for us."

Johnson had a solid start to the night at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday when he timed in fourth quickest out of 24 cars. He finished fourth after starting fifth in his heat race, which placed him third on the starting grid for the feature.

"We ran third for the first few laps until there was a caution," he said. "Then Jamie Ball got by me. I was in fourth until we had another yellow. During the caution I noticed something was really messed up with the car. It was leaning way over to the right. At first, I thought that it might be a low tire so I kept spinning the tires, trying to build some heat and get some air pressure in it. But when the race restarted I went into turn one and the car didn't turn at all. I pulled in and we learned that the left front torsion stop had fallen off.

"I'm not sure why it happened. We've been torquing those bolts the same for two years and this is the first time that's happened. Maybe it was just a fluke deal."

Johnson and his team traveled further south on Sunday for their first visit to Lake Ozark Speedway for the inaugural Sprint and Midget Nationals presented by The Drivers Project finale. The evening began well once again during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event.

"We were really happy with our qualifying at Lake Ozark," he said. "We had never been there before and we got one hot lap before they began timing us. We still timed fourth fastest (out of 39 cars)."

Johnson was scheduled to start third in his heat race and caught a break when the polesitter was penalized a row for jumping the start, moving Johnson to the pole.

"I was able to get a good start and take the lead and held it the rest of the way," he said. "The track was rough and I was mainly just trying to miss the holes."

Johnson placed fourth in a dash to garner the seventh starting position in the 26-car main event on a challenging track surface that claimed a large amount of race cars.

"It was definitely an experience," he said. "I eventually restarted fourth before we got one lap completed just because the guys in front of me had flipped. I think it took about 40 minutes to get the first lap in.

"I think I was running around fifth about 10 laps in when I hit the hole in turns one and two and got all four wheels off the ground. I thought I was going over. By the time the car stopped bouncing and I got back up to speed I think I was second to last. I wanted to keep going, but I just didn't feel it was worth the risk and pulled in a few laps later."

Johnson was credited with a 16th-place result.

Next up will be a return to Knoxville Raceway this Saturday. He ranks eighth in the 360ci winged sprint car championship standings.

Williamson Rallies for Two Top 10s at Lake Ozark Speedway With All Star Debut on the Horizon

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (June 1, 2021) - Garet Williamson capped the inaugural Sprint and Midget Nationals presented by The Drivers Project by charging from 19th to eighth on Sunday night during the finale at Lake Ozark Speedway.

It marked the second top 10 of the weekend for the Bryant Paver Motorsports driver, who rebounded from an early miscue on Saturday to hustle from the back of the field to a 10th-place result.

The Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event began on Saturday with Williamson qualifying 13th quickest out of the 46 drivers. He then won a heat race before placing third in a dash to garner the third starting spot in the A Main.

"I think we were the fastest car there and had a car to win, but we got in there and hooked a rut I think on Lap 3," he said. "We got in the air, came down and spun out. We had to go to the back. If we had some cautions I think we were still a top-five car. We were super good. It was frustrating to get sucked in by the track, but it is what it is."

Williamson overcame the spin, racing from the rear of the field into the top 10 before the checkered flag was waved.

"If you could be patient or if you weren't too scared to run through the ruts it wasn't bad," he said. "If you had some space in front of you you could make it work. We were more patient than a lot of cars and ran where they weren't so that played into our hands."

Passing cars was also the theme on Sunday night after Williamson qualified 26th quickest. He advanced a position in a heat race to place fifth, locking himself into the 19th starting position in the main event.

"We qualified bad," he said. "I figured it'd be faster to go above the hole, but I should have went through it. We passed a car in the heat race to lock into the main event. We had four straight reds and they cut the race down before we made it a lap. Once we got racing I went to the top and it was so dirty. It took five to eight laps to get it cleaned off. Then we got it rolling and moved through the field. We came back and looked at the lap times and almost every time we were the fastest on the track."

Williamson methodically maneuvered through the field and had a strong race car at the finish as he placed eighth for his eighth top 10 of the season. It was his best ASCS National Tour run of the season.

Williamson plans on making his FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions debut this weekend by tackling four races - Thursday at Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Ill.; Friday at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis.; Saturday at Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis.; and Sunday at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. It will be his debut at each track.

"We want to get some nights in and get rolling in the 410," he said. "It's a good opportunity that's not super far from home. It's always fun to get back in the 410."

Wilson Posts Top 10 at Atomic and Second-Place Showing at Waynesfield

Inside Line Promotions - WAYNESFIELD, Ohio (June 1, 2021) - Greg Wilson enjoyed one of his most consistent weekends of the season despite Mother Nature wiping out half of it.

Wilson and his Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics backed team sandwiched a pair of rainy nights between a ninth-place outing last Thursday at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio, and a runner-up result on Sunday at Waynesfield Raceway Park.

The action began at Atomic Speedway with Wilson qualifying 12th quickest. He rallied in his heat race to advance from sixth to third place, which gave him the 12th starting spot for the main event.

"We had a decent night," he said. "We didn't time in good, which was frustrating. We had a little luck in the heat and we were fairly competitive the rest of the night. We ended up ninth in the feature. I felt we were anywhere from a fifth to a 10th or 11th-place car and we ended up in the middle so I was okay with that. There were some pretty good cars there. "

Wilson's ninth-place finish was his 14th top 10 of the season.

Wet weather kept Wilson home for the ensuing two nights before he was able to join the NRA Sprint Invaders at Waynesfield Raceway Park on Sunday. Wilson qualified 16th quickest. A heat race win earned a spot into the dash. Wilson placed second in the dash to garner the outside front row starting spot for the $12,000-to-win main event.

"We led off the outside pole and led a good portion of it, probably about half of the race," he said. "We were too tight when the track changed and it bit us. Brady Bacon was so much more maneuverable than us. Early in the race we were really good before it got traction. We were as good or better than he was, but the key is to be better at the end of the race."

Wilson ended second for his eighth top five of the year.

Wilson plans on racing with the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions this Thursday at Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Ill.; Friday at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis.; Saturday at Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis.; and Sunday at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis.

"I'm excited because I like all four places, but I'm skeptical because I was hoping to have a new car done for this week," he said. "I won't be able to pin myself to the wall with time and then run the risk of not having it the way I wanted it. So we'll run the other car one more weekend. I feel we're not putting our best foot forward with it, but on a side note putting the 360 in on Sunday did help. When you're on a level playing field the car didn't seem so bad. We'll work on some stuff and hopefully have a decent weekend."

Wilson also has a Hercules Tires dealership visit this Saturday at Quality Tire Service in Johnsburg, Ill., from 10 a.m. to noon.

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Show Speed Early at Lawrenceburg

Inside Line Promotions - LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. (June 1, 2021) - Most of Monday evening went well for David Gravel until the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series main event started at Lawrenceburg Speedway.

The Big Game Motorsports driver qualified third quickest, won a heat race and advanced from sixth to fifth place in the dash to line up on the inside of the third row for the feature.

"It started off good," Gravel said. "We had a good pill draw, qualified good and were able to win the heat race to get into the dash. We didn't get a favorable draw, but in a six-car dash it's not a big deal.

"The track was pretty rough and pretty wet. We lost a couple of spots on the start of the main event. Then we fell in line. Later in the race there was a caution and the right rear felt pretty low. A red came out and the tire got too low so we had to change it. I went into the work area and we got it changed in time. We went back out and something happened to the engine so I pretty much just limped it to the finish."

Gravel spent most of the race battling between eighth and ninth place before the late-race trip to the work area made him restart last among lead-lap drivers. He salvaged the night with a 12th-place result.

"The first half of the night went well," he said. "The worst time for something to happen is the feature and that's when it all happened. It's just part of it."

Gravel is looking forward to a pair of World of Outlaws races this weekend with action on Friday at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D., for the Gerdau Presents the 1st Leg of the Northern Tour and on Saturday at Granite City Motor Park in Sauk Rapids, Minn., for the GMC Select Dealers of Minnesota Presents the World of Outlaws.

"River Cities is a tough track," he said. "We've had some solid finishes there and I've won there.

"I had a really good battle with Brad (Sweet) the last time we were in Sauk Rapids and ran second. It's pretty fun as well. I'm looking forward to two fun tracks this weekend."

Dominic Scelzi Driving for Dobmeier During Five Races in June

Inside Line Promotions - FRESNO, Calif. (June 1, 2021) - Dominic Scelzi is excited to pilot a sprint car for Mark Dobmeier during five races this month.

Scelzi will make his debut with the No. 13 team this weekend during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series shows on Friday at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D., for the Gerdau Presents the 1 st Leg of the Northern Tour and on Saturday at Granite City Motor Park in Sauk Rapids, Minn., for the GMC Select Dealers of Minnesota Presents the World of Outlaws.

"I'm really excited and very thankful for Mark and the Dobmeier Family for trusting me with representing their race team for five nights," he said. "I haven't run with the Outlaws all year. It's the longest I've gone not racing with the Outlaws. I'm looking forward to getting back racing with those guys for a couple of nights. It'll give an opportunity to see where I stack up. I'm having the best year of my career and I'd like that to show in the results."

Scelzi finished 11th during his lone start at River Cities Speedway last year. He placed a career-best ninth there in 2019 when he hustled from the 18th starting position. Scelzi garnered the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars that night.

"I love River Cities Speedway," he said. "It's one of my favorite tracks in the country. We've had some good runs there and passed a lot of cars. It seems like it's always racy. Mark has won so many events there and his race cars are really fast. I have high hopes and I feel confident with how we'll be when we unload."

Saturday will mark his debut at Granite City Motor Park.

Scelzi returns to the Dobmeier ride June 20-22 at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., for the first three nights of THE SHOWDOWN. The spectacle begins on June 20 with the $6,000-to-win Chuck Zitterich Tribute. The ensuing two nights are World of Outlaws shows during the Huset's 50, which pays $30,000 to win the finale.

"It's another one of those places that's on my list of favorite tracks," he said. "I really enjoy it. We've run second there twice now and had good opportunities to win. You want to win every race, but I want to compete to win these races. You want to roll in there, time in good and hope that everything goes smooth so we can represent Buffalo Wild Wings and Dobmeier Racing well."

Scelzi charged from 14th to second in early May during his only visit to Huset's Speedway this season. He also placed 11th and seventh, respectively, during a pair of World of Outlaws races at the track last year.

Nolen Racing’s Tanner Swanson Finishes Third;

Hollingsworth Is Involved in Accident While Tenth

During Pay Less Little 500 Saturday at Anderson

ANDERSON, Ind., June 1 — The late Gene Nolen, founder of Nolen Racing, dearly loved fielding cars powered by Chevy V6 engines against the V8s in the biggest asphalt sprint car race in the world, the Pay Less Little 500 presented by UAW at Anderson Speedway.

He would be pleased that his son, Greg, is continuing that tradition, and that Tanner Swanson drove a Nolen Racing V6 to a podium finish in the 73rd annual edition of the race Saturday night.

Swanson, of Kingsburg, Calif., started fifth and finished third in the Nolen Racing Beast No. 4 sponsored by KECO Coatings and powered by a Tranter-prepped Chevy V6.

Shane Hollingsworth of Lafayette, Ind., who finished second for the Whiteland, Ind.-based team in this race last year, made his way deliberately through the field from his 14th-place starting spot in the Nolen Racing Beast No. 20, which is also sponsored by KECO Coatings with a Tranter-prepped Chevy V6. He was as high as eighth. Unfortunately he was involved in a three-car accident in Turns 1 and 2 on lap 187 while running in tenth place, and was forced to make the walk back to the pits while his car returned there on the hook of a wrecker.

Swanson was as high as second during the race and never further back than seventh. He was sixth or seventh during the first 115 laps of the 500-lap race on the quarter-mile asphalt oval. He moved into fifth place on lap 116 by passing Derek Bischak, and fourth on lap 164 when the driver who had been fifth, Dakoda Armstrong, encountered a problem.

He moved into third on lap 175 when the driver in second, Caleb Armstrong, made a pit stop under one of the 13 caution periods during the race. Swanson made a pit stop himself under a yellow on lap 204, which dropped him back to sixth place, but he was back in the top five four laps later due to another rival pitting. He regained fourth on lap 224 by passing Bobby Santos III, and third one lap before the halfway point by passing Scott Hampton.

He moved into second on lap 258 by passing Caleb Armstrong, with the leader and eventual winner, Tyler Roahrig, about 2 seconds ahead. He cut Roahrig’s advantage to 0.577 of a second by lap 270 and remained in second place for 116 laps, about 1.2 seconds behind Roahrig while holding off his brother, Kody Swanson. The top three were the only drivers on the lead lap by that point.

His brother passed him on lap 373 to push him back to third, and he dropped to fourth on lap 387 when he made his second and final pit stop under caution about the same time Roahrig and Kody Swanson did. Hampton had pitted earlier, so Hampton got the lead at that point (lap 388) and rejoined the lead-lap cars followed by Roahrig, Kody Swanson and Tanner Swanson for the restart on lap 391.

Roahrig retook the lead from Hampton right after the restart, and the Swanson brothers were also able to pass Hampton almost immediately. The top three positions never changed from that point until the checkered, although there was one more caution for Travis Welpott’s spin from laps 471-478.

Roahrig, Kody Swanson and Tanner Swanson were the only drivers in the field of 33 who completed all 500 laps.

Hollingsworth was thinking “big picture” even before the start. He was focused on finishing, and was well on his way to joining the front-runners until the accident occurred.

He dropped two positions initially, but he was 15th on lap 12 after passing Jerry Coons Jr.; 14th on lap 20 after passing the driver who ended up fourth, Hampton; 13th on lap 23 after Bryan Gossel spun in front of him, and 12th from lap 75 through 100 after he passed Nick Hamilton.

He got 11th on lap 101 by passing Brian Gerster. He broke into the top 10 on lap 126 after the fourth yellow when Brian Vaughn spun in Turns 1 and 2 and Brian Tyler and Chris Neuenschwander also tangled, as Neuenschwander had been seventh at the time.

Hollingsworth advanced to ninth on lap 138 after the driver who was right in front of him, Kyle Hamilton, hit the wall in Turn 3. He took over eighth place on lap 164 when the fifth-place driver, Dakota Armstrong, pitted under the sixth yellow.

That yellow lasted 15 laps, so the Nolen Racing crew called Hollingsworth into the pits to make his first stop. It went well; he only lost two positions and he was in tenth place for the restart on lap 180.

Unfortunately on lap 188 he was one of the drivers involved in a three-car accident in Turns 1 and 2, and the Nolen Racing No. 20 sustained too much right-front damage to continue. Two drivers who were a couple laps down to him, Dameron Taylor and Neuenschwander, were the other drivers involved in the accident, which brought out the race’s seventh caution. All were done for the rest of the evening.

Hollingsworth ended up 22nd in the final rundown.

As far as times went, Tanner Swanson’s fastest race lap came early, on lap five, and it was the fifth-fastest in the field at 11.559 seconds. Hollingsworth’s came later, on lap 59, with a time of 11.869.

Swanson qualified fifth on Thursday with a combined four-lap time of 44.969 seconds, which was only 0.472 of a second off his brother’s pole-winning run. He was one of only five drivers to post a sub-45 second qualifying run.

Hollingsworth qualified 14th with a four-lap combined time of 45.893, which was only 1.396 seconds off the pole in the very competitive field and five positions better than last year, when he started 19th and finished second.

The team’s next race is scheduled to be the “Thursday Night Thunder Homecoming” on Thursday, June 17 at Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, Ind., which will pay $5,000 to the winners of both the pavement sprint car and the midget races.

For more information please see NolenRacing.com and follow the team on Facebook and Twitter.

Post-race quotes follow:

Tanner Swanson: “It was the best finish I’ve had so far in the Little 500, because in my previous two starts I had engine problems. It’s a long race. Of course we wanted to win, but coming in third behind those two cars was a good effort. Anytime you can get on the podium at the Little 500 it’s an accomplishment.

“The Nolen Racing team was awesome. The car was good and we had great pit stops. I thought we had a shot at it, but during the last stint we didn’t have the speed that the 56 and the 77 had.

“I’m looking forward to trying again at Lucas Oil Raceway on June 17.”

Shane Hollingsworth: “I’m OK today [Monday]. I was sore yesterday, but I’m OK now. I’m disappointed, but that’s how the Little 500 goes sometimes.

“We had just made our first pit stop. We had moved forward after the start, and we were on track to run our race. We were trying to save our equipment, manage the race, and stay in contention for a final push at the end, after the leaders had made their final pit stops.

“We were happy with the progress we’d made. The car was good. Our first pit stop went well. I think we were on track to be running with the leaders at the end.

“My contact was with the No. 8 car, which was a couple laps down. I saw that Chris Neuenschwander was involved too, but I have no idea how he got into it. The No. 8 car was one of the more challenging cars to lap; I had done it a couple of times before. I guess this year was our year to get bit.

“I’m not sure what my next race will be. It might be the Tony Elliott race at Anderson on Oct. 2, but we have a lot of work to do to repair the car now, so we’ll have to wait and see.”

 

 

VENTURA RACEWAY REOPENS TO RACE FANS WITH WESTERN MIDGET RACING

WATSONVILLE, CALIF­. (June 1, 2021) – Western Midget Racing will be a part of the long-awaited reopening of the Ventura Raceway this Saturday, returning to the 1/5th mile dirt track by the ocean for the first time since October 26, 2019. One of the home tracks for the championship series presented by Masters Design and Construction, Ventura Raceway did not hold a single spectator event during the 2020 season. That changes on Saturday night with advanced tickets available at VenturaRaceway.com

In addition to grandstand attendance, FloRacing.com will have live coverage of the activities which also include USAC Western Midgets, California Lightning Sprints, TQ Midgets, and Hobby Stocks. Masters Design and Construction will add $100 to the winner’s share in the purse.

Fresno’s David Prickett has moved into the overall points lead of the WMR but the busy summer schedule has many races to go before the best 12 are factored in to determine a champion. One driver hoping to kick start their championship campaign on Saturday will be 2019 Ventura WMR champion Randi Pankratz. The Atascadero driver won the championship at Ventura without a win and will try to knock 15-time race winner Prickett off his pedestal.

Prickett has faced pressure as of late from Brentwood’s Blake Bower. Bower earned a dominating victory at Petaluma on May 15 and had a narrow second place effort to Prickett at Watsonville in March. He has a career-best finish of second at Ventura with WMR in 2019 and is paired with teammate Antonia Boscacci of Mountain View this season.

Each race winner so far in 2021 will be in competition at Ventura Raceway including Adobe Mountain winner Darren Brent of Lakeside, Calif. and fellow Adobe Mountain winner Cory Brown of Peoria, Ariz. Brent fields an additional entry for Greg Jewett who has a best-finish of third this season. Second place in the current standings is Megan Moorhead of Santa Paula with four top-five finishes. Antioch’s Shawn Arriaga currently ranks fifth in the championship and is expected on Saturday night.

Northern California brothers Brandon and Brent Curran will be competing for Prickett’s Neverlift Motorsports at Ventura. Multiple Southern California drivers are attempting to make their first-ever series appearances as well. Arizona and Nevada are also expected to be represented in the field along with Hawaiian Kala Keliinoi.

Paul Nienhiser Tops Sprint Invaders Action at 34 Raceway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting the best of both worlds over the weekend, Paul Nienhiser would spend Saturday night with KO Motorsports at Lincoln Park Speedway battling with the MSCS, and Sunday night he would take on the Sprint Invaders with Scott Bonar 34-Raceway and race his way to his second feature event win of the season.

“I really want to thank Scott Bonar for the opportunity to get out and run for him again on Sunday night,” Paul Nienhiser said. “He built a new car over the off season, and it was extremely strong the first night out. His car paired with a bullet proof engine from Matt Kinney paired really well, and it was great to get another win with the team.”

Checking in at 34 Raceway on Sunday night, the Chapin, IL driver would find himself on the pole of his heat race, took full advantage of the starting position as he got the hole shot and never looked back.

By way of his heat race win, Nienhiser would move into the Dash where he would take the green flag from the sixth starting position. Able to pick up a couple of positions, Nienhiser would finish fourth and await the inversion draw that ultimately would set the feature event line up.

With a little luck on his side, Nienhiser would find himself on the outside of the front row for the feature event as he was in search of his second feature event win of the year, and first winged win.

When the green flag dropped, Nienhiser was able to beat the pole sitter into turn one and protect himself form any kind of pass attempt. Once clear of turns one and two and safely out front, Nienhiser would plant his right rear on the 34 Raceway cushion and never look back.

Working the high side of the speedway to perfection, Nienhiser was able to give car owner Scott Bonar the win, marking his second win overall in 2021.

Saturday night, Nienhiser was also in action as he checked in at Lincoln Park Speedway with the KO Motorsports team for an MSCS event.

Timing the CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil/Roadworks/Peterbilt backed No. 5N entry in fifth fastest in his heat race group, Nienhiser would find himself starting fifth later in the evening for heat race competition.

On a rough and tumble racing surface, Nienhiser would get his elbows up as he would chase after just one of three transfer positions into the feature event. Getting up to second, Nienhiser would finish there as he chased teammate, Chase Stockon across the finish line.

Moving into the feature event, Nienhiser would take the green flag from the 10th starting position. Feeling just as good as he did in the heat, Nienhiser would again start to work his way forward as he was in fourth at the halfway point and getting better with each completed lap.

Continuing to walk a fine line on the rough surface, Nienhiser would catch a rut wrong, and it would get his machine out of shape, making contact with an infield barrier and bringing his night to an early end.

“Saturday night I felt really good, and it felt like we were back to where we were with our car when the year started,” Nienhiser said. “I really feel like we had a car that was going to be there at the end, we just had some tough luck clipping a rut wrong. Big thanks to both Scott’s team, as well as the KO Motorsports team for some great opportunities to race over the weekend.”

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil, Roadworks, Peterbilt, Mason Sound, Innovative Design, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Wessler Bros. Agency, Bob Hawks Auto Body, Fierce Herbicide, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Kaeding Performance, Smith Titanium Products, Vortex Wings, Signature Signs and Design, and Team Simpson for their continued support.

2021 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-21, Wins-2, Top 5’s-4, Top 10’s-8

ON TAP: Nienhiser will reunite with Scott Bonar on Friday night at Lee County Speedway, and then on Sunday he will pilot in his own car at Jacksonville Speedway. Both races are with MOWA.

STAY CONNECTED: Stay updated with Paul Nienhiser by following him on Twitter @Paul_Nienhiser or by clicking over to www.paulnienhiser.com.

 

Westfall close with BOSS at Waynesfield; Limaland ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (June 1, 2021) – Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports nearly parked it on Sunday night at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio, but a slight hiccup on the white flag lap forced the familiar “Bumblebee Express” entry to settle for third at the line.

Joining the Ohio-based Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) for their lone event of Memorial Day weekend, Westfall, driver of the Ray Marshall-owned/Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car, was in a position to pounce the entire main event, using the initial start to jump ahead from fourth to second before nearly taking command at the completion of lap one.

Forced to navigate an increasingly narrow and abrasive surface, a late restart with two to go gave Westfall one final opportunity for victory. Unfortunately, during his attempt to drive around race leader, Paul Dues, at the entrance of turn three, slight contact was made causing the former BOSS Series champ to slip up the track. In response, Korbyn Hayslett capitalized and squeezed by Westfall for second.

The BOSS Series, who welcomed 27 entries at Waynesfield, was scheduled to be in action at Fremont Speedway one night prior, but Mother Nature had other plans.

“I think we were strong enough to win that race,” Westfall said, the 2019 BOSS Series champion. “Racing on a surface like that can be tricky. It’s tough to maneuver. If you slip up and leave the groove, it could cost you several spots. Regardless, I’m proud of this team. Ray (Marshall) gives us the opportunity and the equipment necessary to be competitive and I’m thankful to be a part of it. We’re going to do our best to park this No. 33M in victory lane this weekend.”

Justin Whittall shows determination in Bob Weikert Memorial

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

VINCENTOWN, N.J. (June 1, 2021) – Despite getting caught up in an incident during heat race competition which forced the Vincentown, New Jersey-native to retire, JW Motorsports’ Justin Whittall persevered in the utmost impressive fashion, charging ahead from the back of the B-Main to a transfer position in 12 laps, ultimately earning a spot in Port Royal Speedway’s $29,000-to-win Bob Weikert Memorial sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions.

Whittall, driver of the JW Motorsports, JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Brotherton Brewing Company, Beechwood Landscape Architecture and Construction LLC, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, FK Rod Ends, Stilo Helmets, Keizer Aluminum Wheels, Enterprise, Ground Blind Boys, No. 67 sprint car, ripped Port Royal’s thin, outer edge to transfer through the All Star Circuit of Champions consolation, utilizing the final few circuits to slingshot by Steve Buckwalter and Curt Stroup.

Unfortunately, Whittall’s feature potential was cut short of the finish, forced to retire early yet again after incidental contact while battling for position; he was scored 24th.

“We had some bad luck, but we had lots of speed. Hopefully we have the opportunity to put it all together the next time the All Stars come to Port Royal,” Justin Whittall said, who owns a podium run at the “Speed Palace” in 2021. “I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work this weekend. They busted their butts and never gave up. We’ll regroup this week and try again this weekend at Williams Grove and Port Royal.”

Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports will continue their 2021 campaign with another round of action in the Keystone State, set to return to Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway on Friday and Saturday, June 4-5.

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (June 1, 2021) – Flying Bob Weikert’s historic No. 29, as well as the traditional Weikert Livestock colors, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich put on a show last evening at the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” and charged ahead from 17th to finish fourth with the All Star Circuit of Champions, earning his way into the $29,000-to-win Bob Weikert Memorial finale on the back of a heat race victory. Clinching the All Star Circuit of Champions’ Hard Charger Award for his efforts, Dietrich’s climb to fourth bumped his season top-ten total to 22, 13 of which inside the top-five.

Dietrich, driver of the Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, No. 29 sprint car, was supposed to be in action with the All Star Circuit of Champions on three separate occasions during Memorial Day weekend, but wet and cold weather forced a cancellation at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, as well as at Port Royal on Saturday. Sunday’s Bob Weikert Memorial finale was ultimately pushed to Monday.

“We were hoping to put together an entire weekend, but it didn’t work out like that. Regardless, hats off to Port Royal and the Weikert Family for taking a chance on Monday and paying the full purse,” Danny Dietrich said. “I think we were good enough to contend for a win, but we just ran out of time. I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work. We’re due for a win. I’m confident it will happen soon.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with another three-pack in Central Pennsylvania on Thursday through Saturday, June 3-5.

Memphis, Tennessee (06/01/21) – Howard Moore enjoyed a successful holiday weekend of competition with the 2021 edition of the United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Speedweek. The Tennessee racer piloted the Rains Motorsports/ Mike's Pool Care No. 3 High-Performance Lubricants Sprint Car a feature win and a pair of runner-up finishes in three starts.

“We had a great weekend of racing, and it felt awesome to have the team back in Victory Lane on Sunday night at Old No. 1 Speedway. All three nights we had a fast car, and even took the lead on Monday night at Lexington 104 Speedway, but a red flag erased the pass,” Moore shared. “I want to thank Rains Motorsports and all of our great sponsors for everything they do. We are a contender every night that we hit the track, and that’s a really great feeling.”

Howard Moore went into battle in the United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Speedweek event at Riverside International Speedway (West Memphis, Ark.) on Saturday evening as the Rains Motorsports team embarked on three-straight nights of competition.

On a cool evening, 32 Sprint Car drivers looked to tackle the 1/4-mile bullring.

Behind the wheel of the Rains Motorsports/ Mike's Pool Care No. 3 High-Performance Lubricants Sprint Car Moore advanced from fifth to third in his heat race, which locked him into the seventh-starting spot for the evening's feature.

Howard went on to advance to a runner-up finish in the main event behind race winner, Cody Gardner.

USCS Speedweek action shifted to Old No. 1 Speedway on Sunday evening. A fifth-to-second performance in heat race action rewarded Howard with the third-starting spot for the 30-lap finale.

Howard charged to the top spot on lap 6 and then proceeded to dominate the rest of the event, lapping up to the sixth position. He was followed across the finish line by Carson Short, Dale Howard, Cody Gardner, and Jordon Mallett.

The victory was his second of the season.

The busy holiday weekend for Howard Moore and Rains Motorsports drew to a close on Monday evening at Tennessee's Lexington 104 Speedway. Twenty-four racers were on hand for the USCS Speedweek event, and Howard began his night by charging from the seventh-starting spot to a runner-up finish.

Starting fourth on the feature grid Moore pursued leader Dale Howard late in the event. The Tennessee racer actually charged to the lead with six circuits remaining, but a red flag nullified the pass. He went on to cross the finish line in the second position behind race winner, Dale Howard, with Mark Smith, Terry Gray, and Jordon Mallett rounding out the Top-5 finishers.

2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Fourth | 3640 points [152 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 1, 2021) - Despite Mother Nature throwing a wrench in plans to visit Terre Haute Action Track on Friday, May 28, Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing utilized the extra off days to actively prepare for their upcoming visit to Lawrenceburg Speedway in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, on Monday, May 31.

Although the Memorial Day visit to the Lawrenceburg highbanks did not result in a Schatz victory, the driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Carquest Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Sage Fruit/Digital Ally/Advance Auto Parts/Rush Truck Centers/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car did manage to secure his 19th top-ten result of the year with the Greatest Show On Dirt, ultimately finishing eighth on a “giddy up” race track after starting in the exact same position. The ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion kicked-off his evening in southern Indiana with the fifth-fastest time overall, followed by a third-place run during his respective heat race.

Kerry Madsen, continuing his substitution for Tony Stewart aboard the Rush Truck Centers/Advance Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Digital Ally/Sage Fruit/FloRacing/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Mobil 1/Carquest Auto Parts/J&J Auto Racing/No. 14 sprint car, joined Schatz at Lawrenceburg Speedway on Monday evening and finished fifth; the result of an impressive climb from the outside of row seven.

Like Schatz, Madsen qualified within the top-ten, ninth overall, and eventually secured his place on the feature lineup with a sixth-place run during heat race competition.

Still on the hunt for World of Outlaws win number 300, as well as an 11th Series championship, Donny Schatz will continue his 2021 World of Outlaws campaign with a trek to much familiar territory. The Fargo, North Dakota-native will kick-off the upcoming weekend with a visit to River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, North Dakota, on Friday, June 4, followed by a stop at Granite City Motor Park in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota, on Saturday, June 5.

Schatz will enter the weekend fourth in the WoO title chase, trailing two-time champ and current leader, Brad Sweet, by 152 markers.

Rico Abreu secures top-tens at Knoxville and Port Royal in same weekend

Date: Saturday, May 29th
Event: Knoxville Championship Series
Series: Knoxville Championship Series 410 Sprint Cars
Track: Knoxville Raceway (Knoxville, Iowa)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 5th (9th)

Date: Monday, May 31st
Event: Bob Weikert Memorial
Series: All Star Circuit of Champions
Track: Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pennsylvania)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 7th (9th)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (June 1, 2021) - Despite a sporadic schedule with a lot of miles in between, Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing persevered and put together a sound Memorial Day weekend campaign, first registering a top-five result at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, May 29, then making the the near-15 hour tow to Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania, where the St. Helena, California-native finished seventh in the $29,000-to-win Bob Weikert Memorial on Monday, May 31.

A much needed test and tune session for upcoming appearances with the Greatest Show On Dirt, including the coveted Knoxville Nationals, Abreu’s trip to Knoxville Raceway ended fifth in the running order, eventually climbing ahead four spots from ninth on the grid.

Port Royal Speedway’s Bob Weikert Memorial, featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions, utilized a passing points system and redraw to set the evening’s feature lineup rather than the All Stars’ traditional dash format. A third place finish during heat race action propelled Abreu’s point total to the top-ten overall, which automatically qualified Abreu for the feature redraw; Abreu went on to start ninth.

“We put on some miles this weekend, but that’s what it’s all about. We love every minute of it,” Rico Abreu said, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Curb Records/Rowdy Energy/Lucas Oil Products/The Wiser Agency/Self Made/Salty’s BBQ/No. 24 sprint car. “We intended on racing all weekend with the All Stars, but with the weather playing a factor, we decided to hang back and turn some laps at Knoxville instead. I was happy to make it to Port Royal in time for the Weikert. The fans in Pennsylvania are second to none and we love being there. I can’t wait to get back.”

Tentatively, Rico Abreu will continue his 2021 campaign with a full slate of All Star Circuit of Champions competition, kicking-off the extended, upcoming weekend with a visit to Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois, on Thursday, June 3. Action will continue with a Wisconsin tripleheader at Wilmot Raceway, Plymouth Dirt Track, and Angell Park Speedway on Friday through Sunday, June 4-6.

The project is also using the services of 58 local small to medium businesses, further spreading the benefits.”
Construction began in December last year and has included: Excavating 1 million tonnes of soil and rock at the site to support construction Constructing a 500m long reinforced retaining wall using almost a 1000 precast concrete panels and 40,000 tonnes of recycled sandstone from the WestConnex project Work on the construction of a 1,200,000 litre storm water retention tank. The tank’s capacity is the equivalent of 60 per cent of a standard Olympic-size swimming pool and is one of two water retention tanks being built for the project Construction of new dedicated car park for speedway competitors and an additional car park for dragway events also under construction.
The speedway circuit is also taking shape, while the grandstand, seating and corporate boxes will all be installed in the coming months.
Mrs Ward said investment in the new speedway comes on top of a $33 million upgrade of Sydney Motorsport Precinct which will enable the site to host some of the biggest motor racing events in Australia and provide a tourism and economic shot in the arm for Western Sydney.
“This is the first time in more than 20 years a Five Star speedway has been built in Australia with the last one being Perth Motorplex, which opened in 2000,” Mrs Ward said.
Greater Sydney Parklands is finalising the tender process to appoint the operator of the new speedway to prepare for the upcoming racing season. The new speedway is expected to be operational by the start of the Speedway season in late September following the decommissioning of the previous speedway at Clyde, which was on land required to stable new metro trains for the mega Sydney Metro West project.

Krikke Motorsport Concludes Season

The Krikke Motorsport team and their driver Dayne Kingshott wrapped up their 2020-21 season campaign last Saturday night with the joint Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series / Sprintcar Association of WA awards night at Perth’s Burswood on Swan.

In what was their first season together in 410 Sprintcars and being based in their home state of Western Australia, the Krikke Motorsport team and Kingshott managed to take away plenty of positives from a campaign that saw them as regular front-running contenders.

The awards night saw the Krikke Motorsport team come away with the Best Presented Car honours, while Kingshott ended up second in the Sprintcar Association of WA point score and also claiming the runner-up honours in the Bonza Bradford Memorial Trophy for the best overall performance.

After stepping into the driver’s seat of the WA # 2 Transport Equipment Hire / Pumpa Manufacturing supported Maxim over the eve of the 2020-21 season to fill the spot left vacant by Kerry Madsen due to him being unable to travel due to international border restrictions, Kingshott grabbed this opportunity with both hands and stepped up to the plate throughout his first full season in 410 Sprintcars.

When it comes to season highlights, Kingshott picked up a total of four minor podium finishes. The 2019 Australian Speedcar Champion was unlucky not to pick up more results, such as multiple wins – including being denied of a feature-race win at the Perth Motorplex after heartbreakingly crashing out on the final lap, and in the end, it denied him of winning chances in both the overall Maddington Toyota Series and Triple Crown Series point scores.

All this was done in front of record crowds with an average of over 4,700 spectators per night at the Perth Motorplex. Night Thunder airing on 7Mate and 7Plus enjoyed a growth in viewers of over 40% and peaked at 1.1 million cumulatively as well as all nights being broadcast live on Dirtvision with over 43 Sprintcar teams competing throughout the season.

With a promising debut season together, the Krikke Motorsport team and Kingshott are now making plans for the 2021-22 season, which is set to also include regular driver Kerry Madsen re-joining the team.

“There were plenty of positives to come out of our first season with Dayne in our team and we certainly exceeded our initial expectations, and we couldn’t be prouder of Dayne and how he carried himself throughout the season,” commented Krikke Motorsport team manager Ryan Krikke.

“Matty Cochrane (crew chief) and the boys turned out a first class race car all season which really showed with little to no mechanical issues and also picking up the Best Presented car award, and both of these accomplishments are things that I am really proud of.

“Next season’s plans are to have Kerry back behind the wheel of our WA # 2 car for all of the major events, and Dayne is also part of our plans, as he is set to step into the driver’s seat around the major events that we plan to run with Kerry.”

Setters Remains Undefeated in Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series Action at Electric City Speedway This Season

Inside Line Promotions - GREAT FALLS, Mont. (May 31, 2021) - James Setters swept the second Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series event of the season last Saturday at Electric City Speedway to remain undefeated this season.

Setters won both his heat race and the main event - a feat he also accomplished in the Mike Quigley owned No. 2 sprint car during the season opener.

"We tried a new setup so that made it a lot more fun," he said. "We wanted to get more entry speed so I could carry more speed through the corner. We'll throw that in the 360 now."

Setters quickly took the lead during his heat race at the dirt oval, powering from the outside of the front row and into the lead right away.

"The heat was pretty fun," he said. "I started on the outside and had to get him on the top on the first lap."

Setters then lined up on the pole for the 20-lap main event.

"In the main Kory Wermling started on the outside and I feel like he's our biggest competition," he said. "I slid him in the first corner and he turned under me, but I had the momentum on the top. There wasn't much on the bottom. On Lap 3 he slid me on a restart, but didn't quite get me. A few laps later there were two cars above me and one below me in traffic. I split them and that was the move that put it away."

Setters led the distance of the feature for his 11th series victory in the last 13 races dating back to the start of the 2019 season.

The next event is this Saturday when Electric City Speedway hosts Round 3 of the Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series season.

QUICK RESULTS -

May 29 - Electric City Speedway in Great Falls, Mont. - Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 1 (1).

SEASON STATS -

2 races, 2 wins, 2 top fives, 2 top 10s, 2 top 15s, 2 top 20s

Doran Racing’s Swanson Wins

Carb Night Classic at Lucas Oil Raceway

BROWNSBURG, Ind., May 31 — Kody Swanson only plans to compete in the asphalt USAC Silver Crown races this year, but he made the most of the opportunity by winning the series’ season opener, the Carb Night Classic, Saturday morning at Lucas Oil Raceway in the Doran Racing No. 77.

The 100-lap race on the 0.686-mile oval was postponed Friday night due to rain.

Swanson used lapped traffic to dive under his perennial rival, Bobby Santos III, coming out of Turn 4 on lap 64 to take the lead in the Doran Racing No. 77, which is sponsored by Glenn Farms and Lykins Energy Solutions and uses a Lanci-prepped Ford engine. He then drove away from the field to post a 4.219-second victory over Santos and collect the winner’s purse of $10,000. David Byrne finished third in the event, which attracted the largest field for a pavement Silver Crown race in nearly a decade.

Swanson, the five-time series champion, and Doran Racing have worked together previously and won events in other series, but it was the first USAC Silver Crown race and the first series victory for the Lebanon, Ohio-based team famous for its accomplishments in sports car racing.

It was the 31st USAC Silver Crown victory for Swanson, a native of Kingsburg, Calif., who now lives in the Indianapolis area, as he increased his record as the series’ winningest driver. He also became the first three-time USAC Silver Crown winner of this event, a pre-Indianapolis 500 staple.

On Friday night during Fatheadz Eyewear qualifying, Swanson qualified second to his younger brother, Tanner, by only 0.107 of a second, 20.714 seconds to 20.821 seconds. Tanner Swanson’s car had suffered damage when he hit the wall earlier in the night, however, and although his team tried to make repairs he started Saturday’s race four laps down, which put Kody Swanson on the pole for the start.

Swanson and Santos ran together for most of the first lap with Swanson on the inside and Santos on the outside, but Santos got the point as they came out of Turn 4 on the first lap. Justin Grant, the series’ defending champion, ran in third place. The top three had pulled away from Byrne in fourth before a red flag flew when the car driven by Nathan Byrd rode the frontstretch wall, flipped, and landed on all four tires. Luckily Byrd climbed out and gave the thumbs’ up signal.

Two laps after the restart Grant dipped under Swanson for second place, and he was still in that position on lap 16 when the first yellow flew for an accident involving Jake Day and Tanner Swanson. They escaped injury too.

That tightened up the field for the restart on lap 23, and with a quarter of the race done Swanson was still third, 0.583 behind the leader, Santos, but only 0.2 of a second behind Grant. He kept consistent pressure on Grant lap after lap until he powered under him in Turn 1 on lap 40 and then set his sights on Santos, who was 1.492 seconds ahead.

At the halfway point Santos’ advantage was still 1.563 seconds, but Swanson had already put 2.324 seconds between himself and Grant and he was doing his best to zero in on Santos.

Six laps later he was only 0.8 of a second behind him, and by lap 60 he was just 0.223 seconds behind as the pair maneuvered through lapped traffic. Timing things perfectly, Swanson used that lapped traffic to help him pass Santos, getting under him in Turn 4 on lap 64. Then he was able to pull away, as he already had a lead of 1.033 seconds two laps later.

He had increased that to nearly 2 seconds when the second yellow flag flew on lap 73 after Kyle Robbins spun in Turn 2, which compressed the field and gave both Santos and Grant another shot at the restart on lap 77. But Swanson was up to the challenge, and had already rebuilt his lead to 1.141 seconds by lap 80. Byrne passed Grant for third on lap 84, but Swanson had a 1.865-second lead on the following lap when the third yellow waved when Robbins spun out again.

Once again Santos, Byrne, Grant and the rest of the field drew near to the rear of the Doran Racing No. 77 for the restart on lap 89, but Swanson fought them off. He was 2.115 seconds ahead of Santos by lap 94, 3.243 seconds ahead on lap 98, and a whopping 4.219 seconds ahead at the checkered flag.

“Lapped traffic is always on your side when you’re in second place,” Swanson said in victory lane. “Today I was just fortunate to see it [a way to pass] unfold. I’m just very thankful to get the win in my first Silver Crown race for Doran Racing. Bobby Santos and Grant had good cars, but my team didn’t give up, and I knew with traffic and the track changing, we had a chance.”

The event was streamed live by FloRacing.com.

Doran Racing’s next USAC Silver Crown race is scheduled for June 25 at Madison International Speedway in Oregon, Wis. The other pavement-track dates on the series’ schedule are July 22 at Winchester (Ind.) Speedway; Aug. 14 back at Lucas Oil Raceway, and Oct. 10 at Toledo (Ohio) Speedway. More information on the schedule is available at usacracing.com.

Doran Racing’s Swanson Concludes Amazing Day

By Finishing Second in Pay Less Little 500

At Anderson Speedway Saturday Night

ANDERSON, Ind., May 31 — Tony Stewart, Robby Gordon, Kurt Busch and the late John Andretti made headlines when they did the “Memorial Day Double,” racing in both the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca Cola 600 on the same day. Stewart had the best results, finishing sixth at Indy and third at Charlotte 20 years ago.

On Saturday Kody Swanson did the “Memorial Day Triple.” He didn’t record quite as many laps as the others mentioned did. He was transported between two tracks not by aircraft, but in the family’s SUV driven by his wife and spotter, Jordan. But he had better results than all of them while competing in three different race cars in three races in one day instead of just two, recording two wins and one runner-up finish.

In the morning he won the 100-lap USAC Silver Crown season opener at Lucas Oil Raceway (LOR). In the afternoon he won the 30-lap midget portion of the Carb Night Classic at the same track. And on Saturday night he finished second in the toughest asphalt sprint car race in the world, the 500-lap Pay Less Little 500 presented by UAW at Anderson Speedway.

In two of the three races he was driving for Doran Racing. He put a USAC Silver Crown car fielded by the Lebanon, Ohio-based team in victory lane at LOR, and then finished second, only 4.667 seconds behind Tyler Roahrig, in one of the team’s asphalt sprint cars in the 73rd edition of Anderson Speedway’s biggest race. In both cases the cars he drove were blue, number 77, Beast chassis and they were sponsored by Glenn Farms and Lykins Energy Solutions.

Swanson, a native of Kingsburg, Calif., now living in the Indianapolis area, won the Little 500 in 2016, 2018 and 2019 on Anderson’s high-banked, quarter-mile oval.

On Thursday he earned his third consecutive pole for the race on CB Fabricating Pole Day with a total four-lap time of 44.497 seconds and an average of 11.124 seconds a lap with the Doran sprint car, which uses a Chevy engine prepped by Dan Binks.

On Saturday night he led the 33 starters assembled in rows of three to the green flag, and remained in the lead for the first 207 laps, holding off all comers despite a torrid pace. At first Caleb Armstrong was right behind him in second, but by lap 175 Roahrig was in the runner-up position.

On lap 189 Swanson became the eighth driver in Little 500 history to lead at last 1,000 laps. He achieved that mark in just seven starts in this race.

He had thing well in hand for over 200 laps, and only gave up the lead to Scott Hampton when he made his first pit stop on lap 208 for three fresh Hoosier tires and fuel, dropping to eighth due to the stop.

He advanced to seventh on lap 220 by passing Jerry Coons Jr., and sixth on lap 246 when he got by Brian Gerster. The latter gave him a great battle, and Swanson see-sawed between sixth and fifth until lap 293, when he moved into fourth place by passing Hampton.

He was back in third on lap 303 after Armstrong had an issue. That put him right behind his younger brother, Tanner Swanson, who was second, and the leader, Roahrig.

He remained third until lap 373, when he got second by passing his brother. At that point Roahrig was about 3.5 seconds ahead and the top three were the only drivers on the lead lap.

Swanson made his second and final pit stop for three fresh tires and fuel under a yellow on lap 386. That stop was excellent too, and he only dropped one spot to third place. Several other top runners pitted under that same yellow. Hampton had made his second pit stop about 78 laps earlier, so he was the leader followed by Roahrig, Kody Swanson and Tanner Swanson for the restart on lap 391.

Roahrig passed Hampton for the lead on lap 392 and led the rest of the way. Kody Swanson passed Hampton two laps later to regain second, setting the third-fastest lap of the race in the process with a time of 11.529 seconds.

Swanson stayed close to Roahrig initially, but then Roahrig was able to extend his lead to the finish. Only the top-three finishers of Roahrig and the Swanson brothers finished on the lead lap. Hampton and Armstrong rounded out the top five, and they were both four laps down.

There were 13 caution-flag periods during the race.

“We were second best tonight,” Kody Swanson said afterwards. “We had a great car. It’s a long race and a lot of things happened. Some things went our way and some didn’t. We passed a lot of race cars and came home second.”

Despite the physical test of endurance, Swanson said he felt fine afterwards. “I’m OK,” he said. “I work out and stay in shape. I love long races. It helped that it was cool tonight, but there’s still a lot of water in my water bottle.

“On that last pit stop we made a small adjustment. We thought it would make the car better, but for whatever reason it was worse for the last stint. But sometimes that happens in a race like this.

“We battled hard,” he concluded. “I had at least four to six close calls, but that’s just the way the Little 500 is.

“It was a good effort by everyone on the Doran Racing team, and I appreciate all their hard work.”

The race was broadcast live on MAVTV Plus and it will air in a two-hour show on MAVTV on a yet-to-be-announced date.

MADDINGTON TOYOTA SPRINTCAR SERIES
SUNDAY, MAY 30

The 2020-21 WA sprintcar season officially came to a close with the combined Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series/Sprintcar Association of WA awards night at Burswood on Swan on Saturday night.

It was the first time the awards night has been held since 2019, with last year’s event cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Callum Williamson was officially presented with the 2020-21 series championship after he dominated the season.

It was a big night for the Williamson Motorsport ace who also received the Artificial Outdoor Solutions Drivers’ Driver award that was presented by award sponsor, Bruce Russell.

He also featured prominently in the SAWA perpetual awards, winning the Feature Race Champion, Most Feature Race Firsts (7) and the Bonza Bradford Memorial Trophy for the best overall performance, taking that award from Dayne Kingshott and Jason Pryde.

Kingshott was runner up in the overall series, putting in a stellar effort in the Krikke Motorsport W2.

Third overall was Kris Coyle who also had a great year of improvement in the Merger Motorsport W79.

He also received the Driver with the Most Potential award for the open division.

Fourth was defending series champion Jason Kendrick in the Kendrick Racing W11, with Pryde, in the Jason Pryde Motorsport W14, fifth overall.

Pryde added to his trophy collection by also taking home the Maddington Toyota Triple Crown at the end of the season.

Sixth was Taylor Milling in the WD Drillers W25, with the Kalgoorlie-based racer showing some great improvement this season.

Seventh was Kaiden Manders who contested the main series in the J&S Drilling W60.

He also collected the WA Sprintcar Championship trophy after he won the title last December.

In his first season back from a long hiatus, David Priolo was eighth overall in the Diamond Bay Motorsport/David Priolo Motorsport W26, showing he will be a force to be reckoned with next season.

Ninth was a former two-time series champion in Brad Maiolo in the LJM Racing W77, also showing plenty of pace in the second half of the season to also be a threat next summer.

Rounding out the top 10 was AJ Nash in the Colonial Motorsport W51 in what was a busy year for the third-generation sprintcar racer - also racing a Wingless Sprint at the back end of the season.

11th was Andrew Priolo in the Highway Harley Davidson Racing Team W8.

Unfortunately he had a few top five race finishes slip after enduring some big crashes - which also saw him receive the SAWA King of Crash award.

12th went to Daniel Harding in the Harding Racing W41 - being another driver who had some big chances for victory slip after a big run of bad luck.

Harding did however claim the Victory Valves overall Quick time award, the SAWA Hard Luck Award and the Artificial Outdoor Solutions Boomerang award.

13th went to James Inglis in the James Inglis Motorsport W80, with 14th to Trevor Jolly in the Harding Racing W18, 15th to Ben Butcher in the Ben Butcher Racing W42 and 16th to Cameron McKenzie in the Double Deuce Motorsport W4.

McKenzie was also announced the series Rookie of the Year and the SAWA Most Improved Driver of the Year.

Jaydee Dack, in the Midwest Concrete Pumping W67, was 17th, with American Brock Zearfoss, who contested the USA v WA Sprintcar Speedweek series and won it, being 18th overall.

His award was collected by car owner Sean Carren, who also collected for him the SAWA Fastest Lap in Heats and Features awards.

Robbie Farr, who also contested Speedweek, in the second Pryde Motorsport 14, was 19th overall, with his award collected by team boss Jason Pryde.

Ryan Lancaster in the Dingo De Motorsport W20, rounded out the top 20.

Kendrick was second overall to Pryde in the Triple Crown series, with Nash third overall.

Matthew Cross received the SAWA Encouragement award for the open division.

Daniel Hartigan was the toast of the town in the SAWA Sprintcar Series, putting in a great effort in the Terry Cutts Racing W5.

He won from Paul Peet, Phil Waters, Troy Lawson, Tim Ryan, Vince Rosenthal, Mitchell Wormall, Steve Adley, Ryan Lancaster and Tom Callaghan.

The SAWA 360 awards were also presented with George Eaton winning the Encouragement Award and Hartigan getting the nod as the Driver with the Most Potential.

Hartigan’s haul continued when he also won the Bonza Bradford Memorial Trophy for the best performance in the division, taking the win from Peet and Ryan.

Naturally his good season also meant he won the Most Feature Race Wins trophy (3) and he was the Feature Race Champion as well.

Wormall collected the WA 360 Sprintcar Championship award.

The SAWA President’s Inspirational award went to Vince and Leanne Rosenthal with Jason Bloxsidge winning the President’s Volunteer Award.

Tim Ryan was announced the SAWA Rookie of the Year, while Peet won the Club Person Award, Krikke Motorsport received the Best Presented Car Award and Kendrick Racing the Best Presented Crew Award.

A big thank you goes to the entire team at Maddington Toyota for being the naming rights sponsor for the Sprintcar Entrants Group series.

The MTSS also thanks Kinchrome, Racin’ Tyres & Accessories/RC2 Filters, Artificial Outdoor Sollutions and Victory Valves.

SAWA thanks Rockingham Pool & Spa Solutions, J&S Drilling, Westralian Diamond Drillers, LJS Equipment, RBH Mechanical, TeeCee Transport, Boat Group, Martin Engineering and Heatleys Bunbury.

Orrville, Ohio

By Mike Swanger

Rain that began on Friday along with below normal temps and windy conditions continued into early Saturday morning forcing the Flory's to cancel the race action at Wayne County Speedway for Saturday night. It is the second time this season that rain has interfered with the racing and both nights had a double header action with the Sprint Cars as this was to be a NRA 360 Sprint race along with the Pine Tree Towing & Recovery Sprints. The McKenzie Concrete Super Stocks and the CORBON Ammunition Modifieds were on the race card. At this time, there is no make up date for the NRA 360 Sprints. The other rain out came when the Great Lakes Sprint Series (GLSS) 360 Sprints were in town but rain started after the gates were open and cancelled that event also.

Race action is scheduled for next Saturday, June 5th with round two of the King of the County Sprint series that will pay $3,500 to win. Back on April 17th, Dean Jacobs scored the 1st King of the County series win. Along with points for the King of the County points, the Pine Tree Towing & Recovery Sprints, the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Models, the McKenzie Concrete Super Stocks, the CORBON Ammunition Modifieds and the JOYRIDE Transport Mini Stocks will all be chasing the O'Reilly's Auto Parts 'Race to the Championship' points.

On Monday June 14th, the FloRacing All Star Sprints will return to 'Orrville's Historic Oval' for the annual Ohio Sprint Speedweek show and the Duffy Smith Memorial paying $6,000 to win. Cap Henry was the winner last season with other winners in the past including Sheldon Haudenschild twice, Rico Abreu, Kyle Larson and Aaron Reutzel. The 305 Race Saver Sprints will make their 1st appearance ever at WCS on that evening also.

Gates will open at 3 pm with hot laps and qualifying at 6 pm and racing at 7 pm for both shows

PASS Joins All Stars At Port

The story-line basket is overflowing as the PA Sprint Series heads to Port Royal Speedway Saturday to join Tony Stewart’s FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions for Night One of the Bob Weikert Memorial.

The All Stars have their stories, including nearly $50,000 available to the winners of this weekends races (Friday at Williams Grove and Saturday/Sunday at Port Royal), an exciting mix of new and old challengers for the checkered flag, and the possibility of a trophy tied to one of sprint car racing’s true legends, Bob Weikert.

But that doesn’t mean the PASS sprinters – sponsored by Penns Valley Meat Market – lack for good story lines. For starters, Saturday is set to be the series’ 10th race of 2021, and so far there have been no repeat winners. Five of those previous winners are expected to be at the Port, including Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery, who presents another choice story.

The 2020 PASS and IMCA/RaceSaver National Champion, Bard earned his first 2021 win last weekend at Selinsgrove Speedway, and a win at Port Royal would move him into sole possession of second place among PASS winners there. The win would be his seventh, breaking a tie with Tyler Bear behind all-time wins leader Jeff Miller, who has a dozen PASS wins at the Juniata County oval. Miller and Bear may be among the entrants for the All Star race.

Overall, half a dozen teams planning to be on hand Saturday are past Port Royal winners. Those 2021 and past Port winners are an impressive group, but the potential winners list for Saturday hardly ends there, as drivers like Doug Dodson, Christian Rumsey, Dom Melair, Erin Statler, Kenny Heffner, Mikell McGee, Kassidy Kreitz and others hope to show.

Gates open at 4:00 p.m. Saturday with racing scheduled for 7:00. Adult general admission tickets are $25 ($10 for students); pit passes are $35.

Next weekend, PASS returns to Selinsgrove Speedway for a Saturday night show also featuring the Kramer Cup for URC 360 sprinters and the roadrunner stocks.

NEW WINNERS GALORE IN PACE RUSH RACING SERIES ACTION ACROSS ALL DIVISIONS INCLUDING 9 IN THE LATE MODELS
By Marcie Barlow

(May 27, 2021) -
(Pulaski, PA)...It was another successful and action packed weekend of Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC action as the RUSH Late Models, Sprint Cars, Sportsman Modifieds, Pro Mods, and Stock Cars all competed at various venues throughout the weekend in addition to the RUSH Karting Series. The theme of the weekend was 'new winners' as each of the above divisions had new winners including nine in the Late Models!

Friday night’s action at the Dog Hollow Speedway saw the Pace RUSH Late Models compete for an added payoff of several thousand dollars throughout the purse. Michael Duritsky, Jr. earned a hard fought win even though he led the entire 20-lap main event. In the early stage of the event, last week’s winner Joe Martin and Mid-Atlantic invaders Levin Crowl and Devin Brannon battled Duritsky for the top spot. At the checkered flag it was Duritsky, who was victorious over Brannon and Crowl, for his first win of 2021 worth $750. Martin, who pitted mid race for a flat tire, worked his way back to fourth with Joe Moyer claiming the fifth position. The RUSH Late Models will be in action this Friday as part of the Memorial Day weekend racing card.

Matt Latta claimed his first victory of the young season as he was victorious in Pace RUSH Late Model feature at Raceway Friday evening. Latta and last week’s winner Josh Ferry led the field to the green with Latta claiming the top spot. Ferry, Breyton Santee, Cory Sines and Billy Henry battled behind Latta for positions two through five. A caution on lap seven slowed the field, but Latta pulled away and went on to score the victory over Santee, Ferry, Dave Airgood and Henry. Racing action at the Conneaut, Ohio oval continues this Friday with the RUSH Late Models headlining the card.

The Hill Speedway in Monroeton, PA held their first ever Pace RUSH Late Model sanctioned event this past Friday and former Modified star Chad Homan’s name will go down in the record books as the winner of that event. The New York standout defeated Brad Smith, Steve LeBarron, Joe Lane and Jared Keeney. Racing action at the speedway continues this Friday with a seven-division racing card.

RUSH Late Model action at the Fulton Speedway saw three lead changes in the first three laps as Bret Belden, Max Hill and Chris Fleming each led a lap before Chris Fleming took over the top spot. Fleming went on to dominate the second half of the main event to score his first win of the season over Homan, Hill, Kevan Cook and Bret Belden. The RUSH Late Models will return to action this Saturday.

Genesee Speedway hosted two RUSH Late Model main events this weekend. The feature event that was postponed from May 1 saw Dave DuBois return to victory lane for the first time in nearly two years. DuBois used the high line to rocket by leader Jimmy Johnson on lap 16 and led the remainder of the 25-lap event. Johnson held on to the second spot and was followed by Paul Grigsby, Bill Holmes and Doug Ricotta. The second RUSH Late Model main event saw Jeremy Wonderling grab the lead with a slide job on Johnson. At the same time, Holmes used was able to get by Johnson and began pressuring Wonderling for the lead. On the eighth circuit, a miscue by Wonderling, would end his night. Holmes would go on to claim his second Genesee win of the season as Mazur, Johnson, Grigsby and Ricotta completed the top five.

Woodhull Raceway was also back in action this past Saturday and the RUSH Late Model main event was a heartbreaker for John Haggerty. The veteran racer weathered several cautions and led the first 18 circuits of the feature before Brian Knowles motored by. Knowles led the final two laps to pick up his second victory of the season at the southern tier New York oval. Haggerty held on to the runner-up spot with Dusty Waters, Brad Smith and Kurt Stebbins completing the top five. The RUSH Late Models will have the night off this Saturday due to the Tour race at Genesee.

Pace RUSH Late Model action at the New Stateline Speedway saw Steve Dixon and Jason Genco swap the lead several times during the first half of the main event. By lap seven, Darrell Bossard joined in the battle. Bossard and Dixon were even at the line with Dixon gaining the edge one lap later. Dixon went on to score his season's first win with Bossard, Scott Gurdak, Genco and an excellent run by David Parker to round out the top five.

Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway had two RUSH divisions in action this past week as both the Late Models and Sportsman Modifieds were on the card. Veteran Daryl Charlier led the Late Model main event for the entire 20-lap distance. Charlier weathered several cautions to score his first victory of the season at the Imperial oval. Zach Morrow claimed his best RUSH Late Model finish to date in the second spot over Tommy Schirnhofer, Jr., and brothers Zach and Jake Gunn.

Chas Wolbert and Tony Tatgenhorst led the RUSH Sportsman Modified main event to the green in their first of nine appearances of the season. Wolbert led the first six circuits while fifth place starter Justin Shea slowly worked his way through the field. By lap five, Shea had taken over the second spot and set his sights on the leader. On the next circuit Shea drove by Wolbert and cruised to his first PPMS win since 2017! Wolbert held on to the second spot with Tatgenhorst, Jordan Ehrenberg and rookie Ben Easler rounding out the top five.

This Saturday night the RUSH Late Models will return as part of the weekly racing action at PPMS; meanwhile, the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds have two Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly Series events this weekend as Friday they will be in action at Raceway 7 and on Saturday at Sharon Speedway; both also part of the Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series.

Sunday night RUSH Late Model action at Eriez Speedway saw veterans Chub Frank and Scott Gurdak lead the field to green. Several cautions would slow the event, but Frank maintained the top spot while Gurdak, Jason Genco, Bobby Rohrer and Mike Knight battled for spots two through five. When the checkered flag waved Frank scored his first win of the season. Genco was able to hold off Knight for the second spot. Gurdak was fourth and Breyton Santee was fifth.

Bradford Speedway got their first night of racing action in on Sunday. Jeremy Wonderling several rain delays to claim the RUSH Late Model win over J.J. Mazur, Steve Dixon, Andy Michael and Jason Dobson. It was Wonderling's second overall win of 2021 to go along with his Tour victory on May 15 at Stateline.

The Pace RUSH Sprint Cars were in action at Sharon Speedway on Saturday for the first time of the year as they joined up with the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars in front of a capacity crowd. Veteran Arnie Kent and two-time Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Champion Chad Ruhlman brought the field to the green with Kent taking the lead. A Tyler Newhart flip on lap two stopped the action. When racing action resumed Kent, Rod George, Nolan Groves and Ruhlman pulled away from the remainder of the field and battled for the top spot. Ruhlman slowed om lap 11 to bring out the event’s final caution.

Kent and George battled for the top spot when the action resumed. George wrestled the lead away from Kent on lap 13 and went on to lead the final six circuits for the $800 victory. It was the first ever RUSH Sprint Car victory for the 61-year-old George, who came out of retirement this year. Groves, Kent, 19th starting Blaze Myers and Steve Pedley rounded out the top five. The division will return to the Sharon Speedway this Saturday to compete in another event.

The Pace RUSH Pro Mods were in action at both Stateline and Bradford Speedways last weekend. Saturday night at Stateline, Greg Johnson grabbed the lead at the start and weathered several cautions to score his first victory over Adam Ashcroft, Mike Eschrich, C.J. Irons and Dennis Lunger, Jr. Former E-Mod racer, Mike Eschrich, was the victor on Sunday. Eschrich is in his first season in the RUSH Pro Mods.

Another Podium at Beaver Dam For Goldesberry

Springfield, IL (May 27, 2021) – Coming off two solid runs with the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions, Jordan Goldesberry Motorsports turned their attention back to the Bumper to Bumper IRA Series at Beaver Dam Raceway.

With 26 cars checked in, Goldesberry would go out 24th on a track that continued to slow down during qualifying. He would clock in at 12.261 seconds around the 1/3 mile which was 10th quick on the night.

“Our car was good in qualifying and I had a good lap for what the racetrack was at the end of qualifying.” said Goldesberry.

Goldesberry would line up his Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim on the pole of the first heat race. Scotty Neitzel would shoot to the lead and Goldesberry settled in second where he would finish. With the IRA format, Goldesberry would miss the dash. The Rockstar Energy Drink #65 would line up in the 11th starting spot for the feature on a track that was extremely slick. Goldesberry got a great start and within 10 laps he would find himself in sixth. After a couple of cautions, Goldesberry kept picking up positions in his Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim. When the checker flag flew, the Rockstar Energy Drink #65 would cross the line third, picking up another podium at Beaver Dam Raceway.

“We tried something different with our setup for the feature just to see if we could get better being we were starting in the sixth row. I’m glad we did and think it will be something we can resort back to on similar track conditions.” said Goldesberry. “We had a lot fun with all the fans that came over after the races to pick up a Rockstar and Hero Cards. I even signed a can for a young fan!”

This weekend the Rockstar Energy Drink team will take off in preparation for the four day All Star/IRA swing through Illinois and Wisconsin.

May 27, 2021 – We are just two away from the inaugural American Speed U.S Nationals at Kalamazoo Speedway in Kalamazoo Michigan.

“We unloaded with speed at Gas City I-69 Speedway and you have to capitalize on those opportunities when you run with this level of competition. We made a few changes after the dash redraw and had a ton of fun battling with Rico there in the main for the runner up spot. It was good to get that first podium, we’ll keep digging to get that first win.” said Balog, the10x IRA Sprint Car Champ.

After 75 rowdy bullring laps of Circle City Raceway feature competition Bill brought the CK Contractors LLC, Buesser Concrete, Wisecup Siding, Howard Law, Wayne Corini, CPA, Lein Acres, Turn It Up Media #17B sprint car to the finish line with a 5th place and 8th place finish respectively, capturing his 5th top 5 of the season.

“We knew the Indiana Invasion bullring races were going to carry a ton of intensity and close racing as everyone was gunning for the Rayce Rudeen Foundation money. It was almost everyone’s first time at Circle City with a wing and the track was different on both nights, so it gave us a chance each night while we were learning. The car kept getting better and better throughout the features. We gotta thank our sponsor partners and crew for putting us in the position to run at this level. Whether the track was wet and tacky or dry-slick it was great racing and a lot of fun.” said Balog driver of the CK Contractors LLC, Buesser Concrete, Wisecup Siding, Howard Law, Wayne Corini, CPA, Lein Acres, Turn It Up Media sprint car.

The team was second in All Star Circle of Champions Indiana Invasion by Rayce Rudeen Foundation points heading into the final event at Kokomo Speedway.

Champion DOT 5 Brake Fluid is Purpose-Built for Classic, Antique and Collector Vehicles

For Immediate Release:

(Clinton, MO / 05.26.21) Champion, a globally recognized industry leader in specialty products for over 65 years, recently has introduced Champion DOT 5 Silicone-Based Brake Fluid. It is a polysiloxane based fluid designed for use in non-ABS hydraulic braking applications. Developed to be used in older vehicles where moisture is going to be prevalent and unavoidable due to lack of use or storage.

Brakes run on a hydraulic system that requires fluid to make it work. When you put your foot on the brake pedal it transfers pressure through the brake fluid to the brake calipers which applies pressure to the brake pads & rotors or the brake shoes & drums. The pressure is caused by the brake fluid in this type of hydraulic system.

This process creates friction that stops the vehicle and, in some applications, may create a lot of heat. Different brake fluids react to heat in different ways which is why there are different types of DOT brake fluids available. Dot 5 has a very high boiling point and has more compressibility than most glycol ether-based fluids.

Champion DOT 5 Brake Fluid (Part #4055) is silicone-based high-temp brake fluid and is used primarily in applications like classic, antique or collector cars or trucks where the vehicle may be in storage or used occasionally. It will not blister, peel, or harm painted surfaces and acts as a weather barrier for your brake system, preventing rust.

Unlike glycol-based fluids, Champion’s silicone-based brake fluid has a much more consistent viscosity profile and provides excellent lubrication of brake system components – leading to more consistent brake feel and longer component life. A Champion DOT 5-filled brake system will last longer and works well in cold temperatures.

Do not use Champion DOT 5 Brake Fluid in ABS-equipped braking systems. When DOT 5 brake fluid is used in an ABS system it will become foamy and unreliable. This is a result of the pulse high-pressure action that ABS brake systems exert on the brake fluid. The brakes will become spongy as the foaming action will produce air bubbles that greatly reduces the reliability of the brake fluid.

There are some other systems that may not work with silicone brake fluids because of their chemical composition of silicone rubber external components, like caliper piston boots, and that a DOT 5 brake fluid could actually break them down. Champion DOT 5 Brake Fluid does not mix with DOT 3, DOT 4, DOT 5.1 or racing brake fluids.

Champion DOT 5 Brake Fluid specific properties: Purple Liquid, Dry boiling point of 530 degrees, Viscosity of 900cSt at -40°F, Conforms to FMVSS 116 (DOT 5) and MIL-PRF-46176B, Contains -Polydimethylsiloxane, Tributylphosphate, and Dioctyl-Sebacate.

Dominic Scelzi Rallies for Top Five to Maintain King of the West-NARC Points Lead

Inside Line Promotions - PLACERVILLE, Calif. (May 27, 2021) - Dominic Scelzi's consistent start to the season continued last weekend during a pair of races in his home state of California.

Scelzi overcame an opening-lap incident to charge through the field en route to a fifth-place result on Saturday at Petaluma Speedway in Petaluma before he posted a run from ninth to fourth on Sunday at Placerville Speedway.

The two top fives give Scelzi 19 top fives in 24 races this year. That tops last year's total number of top fives in 65 starts.

"I feel we're in as good of a position as we've ever been," he said. "The team is great and I'm feel like I'm driving great. When we do have circumstances come up when we may not be in position to win the race we have to get the best finish we can and we did that on Saturday."

The weekend started on the right note Saturday as Scelzi qualified third quickest out of 19 competitors. He advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race to make the dash. A fourth-place finish in the dash lined him up on the outside of the second row in the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series main event.

"That's a place I've never been stellar at," he said. "I've had a couple of average runs, but we qualified well and moved forward in the heat race Saturday. We ran fourth in the dash and I felt we set ourselves up for success.

"The front row took themselves out on the initial start of the feature. We got involved in it and had to restart I think in 16th. It went green to checkered after that and we ran it up to fifth. I was mad it took us out of contention to have a shot to win the race, but I was extremely happy with how we rebounded. It was a hard place to pass at and we came from the back to fifth on a green-to-checkered run. We made a bad night a decent night."

Scelzi's charge to earn the fifth-place finish gives him a six-point lead in the championship standings after three races this season.

The team headed to Placerville Speedway on Sunday. Scelzi timed in fifth quickest out of 36 drivers before a third-place run in a heat race locked him into the ninth starting spot for the main event.

"I hadn't run a 360 show there since I think 2017 or 2018," he said. "We were the second-to-last car out overall and qualified third, which was great. We placed third in the heat so we missed the feature redraw because they were taking the heat race winners plus the fastest qualifier in each group.

"The track was really slick. I worked the middle bottom the whole feature. Everybody seemed to be running the curb. I kept my momentum up and drove it up to fourth. They cut the race short five laps. I felt we were a top-three car. It was great to be able to drive up through there and show speed. It's the first time in a long time that I've been there and legitimately passed race cars. That gave me a huge boost of confidence."

May 22 - Petaluma Speedway in Petaluma, Calif. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 3 (4); Dash: 4 (4); Feature: 5 (4).

Sprint Car racer, Marion Jacobs 86 passes away

Tuscumbia, AL - May 26, 2021 - Past frequent USCS sprint car driver throughout the 1990's and early 2000's Marion Jacobs from Tuscumbia, Alabama passed away at 2pm today. Jacobs, who was born in Columbus, Nebraska was 86 years old.

He raced many types of open wheel race cars from the time he was seventeen years old. His racing career took him from Nebraska, where he was born, to Kansas then California and eventually to the Mid-South area of the United States to the North Alabama in Tuscumbia, Alabama.

His records and memory, which was sharp until the end, said he raced at 257 different race tracks during a racing career that spanned 69 years as he competed in his first event in "Jalopies" in 1952 and his last and final event was at Thunderhill Raceway in Summertown, Tennessee piloting his blue #3d Sprint Car in 2012.

Jacobs started in those Nebraska "Jalopies" in 1952, then moved up to Supermodifieds in Kansas before later moving to California to race his first sprint cars.

USCS Founder and President, Pete Walton stated that, " Marion called me several months ago before he got sick and told me that he was going to get his old car ready and bring it back out and maybe tace it or put his Grandson in it. You could just tell even at his age in the mid eighties, he never lost that fire he had when he was a seventeen year old upstart. He loved his racing."

"By the time I met him back in the late 1980's or early 1990's he had gotten kind of down on his luck and didn't have the equipment he probably would need to win or be competitive with, but he still wanted and his Family always wanted to be part of the racing community and join the action" said Walton.

"I don't know how many races he really won at those 257 tracks, but, from his stories it sounded like a good number when he was in his prime. But no matter what he seemed to have enjoyed every second of it" concluded Pete Walton

Marion Jacobs lost his wife Maxine in 2014. Now he has been reunited with her. He also previously lost a daughter, Diana and Grandaughter, Carrie who also preceded him in death.

He leaves behind two Sons, Marion, Jr. and Daniel Jacobs. He also has also leaves three Grandson's, Wyatt, Cody and Justin Jacobs.

Please keep the Jacobs Family in your prayers.

Rest in Peace Marion Jacobs true racer.

Kaley Gharst leads the all-time win list at the facility with six, followed by John Schulz (5), Matt Sutton and Terry McCarl (4), and Jeff Mitrisin and Randy Martin (3).

On Sunday, May 30, the Sprint Invaders hit the banks of the 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa. Four events were run on the 3/8-mile in 2020, won by California’s Kyle Offill, Paul Nienhiser, Josh Schneiderman and the first Canadian winner in series history, Dylan Westbrook, who claimed the $5,000 Fall Haul in September.

Dietrich continues May campaign with top-tens in NJ, PA, and WV; Davey Brown Tribute and Weikert Memorial next

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (May 25, 2021) – Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing logged some serious miles during their recent stretch of competition, and despite long hours, stout competitors, and multiple track configurations, “Double-D” put together an undoubted string of success, highlighted with a runner-up finish during a Yellow Breeches program at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, May 21.

Before making his trip to The Grove, Dietrich, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, No. 48 sprint car, kicked off his long week with a stop at Bridgeport Motorsports Park in Swedesboro, New Jersey, on Tuesday, May 18, joining the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series for their only Garden State visit of the season. “Double-D” finished eighth with the Greatest Show On Dirt, ultimately bumping ahead two spots after starting tenth.

In addition, “Double-D” earned a sixth-place performance during West Virginia Motor Speedway’s Mountaineer Nationals on Saturday, May 22, followed by a 14th-place rally against the All Star Circuit of Champions at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Indiana, on Sunday, May 23.

“It wasn’t a bad weekend for the most part. I think we were better than our results at a few of the races, but we’ll do what we can to find speed for next weekend. That’s the priority,” Danny Dietrich said, who owns one victory on the season. “As much as we love hitting the road and racing at some of the bigger shows in the region, it’s tough to beat racing close to home. There’s a lot of money on the line this weekend right in our own backyard, so the plan is to take full advantage of that opportunity.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with an All Star Circuit of Champions tripleheader in Pennsylvania Posse Country, set to invade Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway for a $49,000 potential on Friday through Sunday, May 28-30.

Zearfoss back on track with WoO top-tens at Attica and Sharon

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (May 25, 2021) – Quickly rebounding after suffering from a “DNF” result at Bridgeport Motorsports Park on Tuesday, May 18, the “Jonestown Jet” Brock Zearfoss is officially back on track, securing back-to-back top-ten finishes during World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series competition at Attica Raceway Park and Sharon Speedway on May 21-22, respectively.

Zearfoss, pilot of the Brock Zearfoss Racing, Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., Meckley’s Limestone Products, Berkebile Oil Company, Klick Lewis Cars, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, X-1 Race Cars, No. 3Z sprint car, finished eighth and seventh, respectively, during his Ohio doubleheader, highlighting the pair with a top-notch performance at Sharon Speedway. The former Port Royal Speedway champion climbed five sports at the Hartford oval, earning his way into the evening’s A-Main after finishing fourth during heat race action.

Just as impressive, Zearfoss turned his eighth-row starting position at Attica Raceway Park into an eighth-place finish, forced to start deep after finishing sixth during his respective heat race. The 2021 World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year contender certainly knows his way around the Attica highbanks, as Zearfoss is a former Brad Doty Classic winner, scoring $10,000 for the All Star Circuit of Champions triumph in 2019.

In total, Zearfoss advanced 13 feature positions in two days, now with 14 total top-ten finishes on the year, eight of which with the Greatest Show On Dirt.

“We needed that weekend, for sure. The luck hasn’t been there for us lately, so finding some positive momentum was the key. I think we achieved that,” Brock Zearfoss said, who is currently ninth in the World of Outlaws championship standings. “I can’t thank everyone enough for sticking behind us during these last few weeks. Our team is strong and the people behind us are the real backbone. I’m excited to keep this stretch going and hopefully contend for a win at Terre Haute and Lawrenceburg.”

Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing will continue their 2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with a two-pack in the Hoosier State, set to invade the historic Terre Haute Action Track on Friday, May 28, followed by a visit to the highly touted Lawrenceburg Speedway on Monday, May 31.

Michael highlights Indiana road trip with 11th-place run at Circle City; Williams Grove, Port Royal on deck

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FREMONT, Ohio (May 25, 2021) – It was a hard-fought weekend in the Hoosier State for T.J. Michael and Michael Motorsports, and despite an intense schedule complete with four events in four days across three Indiana bullrings, the “Texas Traveler” did his best to persevere and highlighted the high-dollar, All Star Circuit of Champions weekend with an 11th-place score at the all-new Circle City Raceway in Indianapolis on Friday, May 21.

Kicking-off the evening by setting the tenth-fastest qualifying time, Michael would go on to transfer through his respective heat race and eventually line up 14th on the A-Main grid. A three spot jump would put Michael 11th by feature’s end.

The Plano, Texas-native was in a similar position at Circle City just one night prior during the All Stars Indiana Invasion lidlifter, lining up 12th on the A-Main grid after finishing second during his respective heat race. Unfortunately, Michael’s involvement in two unassisted cautions forced the former FAST Series winner to retire early.

Not the way the “Texas Traveler” wanted to cap his Indiana road trip, Michael was forced to miss A-Main action at Gas City I-69 Speedway and Kokomo Speedway on Saturday and Sunday, May 22-23; he did not qualify through preliminary action.

“It was an up and down weekend for our team. A few things happened that were a little bit out of our control. If those didn’t happen, we would have probably been in the features at Gas City and Kokomo. Regardless, we learned a lot and now we have a much better notebook for smaller tracks,” Michael said, who earned the 2021 FAST Series opening night win at Waynesfield. “I can’t thank my team and all of our supporters enough. We knew it was going to be a competitive season with the All Stars. We’re going to do what we can to find ways to better ourselves. That’s what everyone’s out here to do.”

James, Mayden, Whisler, Schmidt, And Martin Earn CGS Fan Appreciation Night Wins

Cottage Grove, Oregon- Fan Appreciation Night made its glorious return to Cottage Grove Speedway on Saturday, May 22nd. It was the first time since 2019 that popular event had been to the historic ¼-mile clay oval and featured three Speedway Motors IMCA Weekly Racing program classes. A total of five divisions were on the card, including the Todd’s Auto Body Sprints, IMCA Modifieds, Late Models, Royalty Core IMCA Northern Sport Mods, and IMCA Sport Compacts.

Bricen James took over the top spot on the opening start of the Todd’s Auto Body Sprints. The Albany racer, racing for car owner Brian Crockett, dominated the feature that witnessed just a single stoppage on lap seven. James went on to win his first Sprint Car race since suffering an injury in the Fall of 2017 at CGS. Bricen is the third different winner in four races, and it is the first of his career in the division.

David Marble, of Shady Cove, was second with third going to Pat Desbiens, from Sutherlin. Eureka, California teenager Anissa Curtice and Winston’s Tyrell Mead were fourth and fifth.

The IMCA Modifieds had an action-packed twenty-five-lap feature. Keno youngster Jeffrey Hudson stormed to the front at the drop of the initial green flag. Hudson, racing for car owner Dan Roemer, remained out in front for quite a bit of time until Jake Mayden overtook him on lap nineteen.

Jake Mayden, from Springfield, assumed the point when he navigated his way past Jeffrey Hudson for the lead. Mayden managed to fend off a hard-charging Bricen James, pulling double duty, to earn his second consecutive win in the IMCA Modifieds despite some hefty traffic. He is the first repeat winner in class and KMJ Performance Oregon State action.

Bricen James was the runner-up, while Cottage Grove’s Curtis Towns ended the night third. Matthew Drager, from Albany, came to the line in fourth, with fifth going to Chad Groves of Bend.

In Late Model competition, Scio’s Rob Campos set a rapid on the first lap. However, he would be passed by Joey Tanner on the second circuit of the thirty-lap main event. Tanner, of Portland and racing the Ray Mitchell-owned machine, was very quick but was not able to construct too large of lead due to four stoppages.

While in traffic, Jimmy Whisler made a bonsai move underneath Tanner to obtain first place on lap twenty-six. Whisler, from Otis, went on to win the race to make it four different winners in as many races in 2021.

Joey Tanner was a close second, followed by Toledo native Jordan Wright, in third. The rest of the top five consisted of Gresham’s Jason Johnson and Mike Peters, of Cottage Grove and racing for his brother Ed, in fourth and fifth.

Roseburg’s Jordan Henry was the initial leader in the twenty lap Royalty Core IMCA Northern Sport Mod main event. Henry stayed there for most of the first half of the race but eventually was overtaken after a restart. David Schmidt, also of Roseburg, was the one to perform the pass and secured the top place position on lap nine.

Schmidt wasn’t entirely out of the woods yet as he had to deal with three cautions. Despite the slowdowns, David was still the leader and went on to win his first race of 2021 at Cottage Grove Speedway and KMJ Performance Oregon State competition. However, it is his second win of the entire campaign as he scored a victory at Nevada’s Battle Mountain Raceway on Friday, May 14th.

Springfield racers Dustin Comer and Shawn Hand were second and third in the finishing order. Jordan Henry ended the race fourth over fifth, finishing Aaron Bloom, now residing in Winston. Corbett teenager Skyler Winebager won the consolation feature earlier in the program.

For the twenty-lap IMCA Sport Compact main event, Michael Kennerly got off to a fast start. The Oakland resident had to deal with several yellow flags, which took lapped traffic out of the mix for a while. However, Bradley Martin got by Kennerly shortly after a lap seven restart.

Martin, from Dexter, stayed in first place the rest of the distance to win his first career IMCA Sport Compact main event at Cottage Grove Speedway and in KMJ Performance Oregon State action. He is the third different victor in six races at “The Grove.”

Michael Kennerly hit the line second while Cottage Grove’s Kerry Cooper got third. Barry Cannon, also from Dexter, was fourth with fifth going to Tiffany Towns of Cottage Grove.

Cottage Grove Speedway returns to racing on Saturday, May 29th. Classes in action include the Northwest Focus Midget Series, Todd’s Auto Body Sprints, IMCA Modifieds, Late Models, and Royalty Core IMCA Northern Sport Mods. Sunday will have the return of the Midgets and Sprints and Street Stocks, IMCA Sport Compacts, and Senior Sprints in attendance.

Brody Roa
 

(Cypress, CA, May 26, 2021) Thirty-three years ago this coming October, Kirk Gibson hit one of the most famous home runs in World Series history at Dodger Stadium. The blast prompted Hall of Fame announcer Vin Scully to say, “In a year that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened.” If Scully had been at Perris Auto Speedway last Saturday night and seen the predicament Brody Roa was in at the 70th Salute To Indy, he may have quipped, “In a main event that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened,” as the Garden Grove, California racer came from dead last to win the 30-lap main event.

The Salute to Indy is on most west coast traditional sprint car driver's bucket list including Roa. Four years ago he came close to only finish second. Last Saturday, the 30-year-old racing veteran finally added the Salute to Indy trophy to his already crowded mantelpiece in storybook fashion.

187859168_3948685758501130_2160264492278864815_n.jpg 2021 Salute to Indy Champion Brody Roa and crew celebrate after Saturday's win. Doug Allen Photo.

After setting fast time at the Bakersfield Speedway two weeks earlier, Roa timed in seventh fastest at the 225th USAC/CRA race on the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval. That did not bode well because if everyone who qualified faster transferred out of their respective heat races, the best Roa could start in the finale would be seventh. Of course, that is exactly what happened.

Before the main, Roa flexed his muscles in the night’s first heat race. His flashy green #91R was starting on the outside of the second row. Using the wide line, he swept into the second-place spot coming off turn two on the opening lap. A lap and a half later he changed lines. He went to the bottom of the track and coming off turn four, he moved into the lead. By the time the race ended, “The Pride of Garden Grove” was about ¾ of a straightaway ahead of his closest pursuer.

For what turned out to be one of the wildest and most dramatic main events in the track’s 25-year history, Roa began the race on the inside of the third row. By the end of the third lap, the affable racer had passed three cars and was up to fourth. He remained fourth until disaster struck in turn four on the eighth circuit. He missed his mark going into the corner, got tapped from behind and slid to a stop.

Roa had to restart at the back of the 22-car field with 22-laps to go. Chances were, he would not get back to the top five and winning to most sane people was out of the question. However, he surprised a majority of the grandstands by coming from last to third two weeks prior at Bakersfield. So, nothing was out of the question.

Once the green light came back on, Roa went to work. In the first two laps he passed five cars. Three laps later he was already back to 15th and when the race reached the halfway point, he had advanced 12-spots and was in 10th. The streaking green #91R continued its push forward and by the start of the 23rd go around, he was in seventh and challenging for sixth. However, time was running out fast. Suddenly, the opportunities changed in a flash when the lead car tangled with a lapper heading into turn three. In the ensuing chaos, seven cars got tangled up including five of the top six.

When the mayhem began happening, Roa headed for the inside and stayed completely out of the mess. And that meant he was going to be second on the restart. On the first lap back under green, more action occurred when Roa and the leader tangled in the fourth turn. The result saw Roa continue with his competitor tagging the wall and ending up out of the race. That put Roa, the 2019 USAC Southwest Series champion, into the lead for what turned out to be the final restart. He dominated the final eight laps and powered to the win with a half straightaway to spare.

“We won the Salute to Indy,” a grinning Roa told the big crowd after the race. “This thing was good enough where I could pound the cushion just outside the rubber and get a run on everybody coming off the corner. In the off season we were kind of scrounging around looking for a car we were going to run as we did not have any cars. My dad called Frank from E.M.I. and he said he had a Helix sitting there that someone had canceled on and he could ship it. I said all right, let’s give something new a shot. Let’s start over. I am glad I did.”

The triumph in the historic race vaulted Roa from fourth to third in the USAC/CRA standings. Heading into the next race at Perris on June 19th, he is only 19-points out of second.

While Saturday’s victory was Roa’s first in USAC/CRA competition in 2021, it was his third in 10 total sprint car starts. It was also his sixth top three finish and seventh top 10 result thus far this year.

Roa and the team would like to thank the following for being part of the 91R’s 2021 campaign.

Sprint Cars Tune Up For Speedweek At Tri-City Raceway Park
(Franklin, PA May 26, 2021): After a week off for the ULMS Late Models presented by Donovan and Bauer Auto Group, the four divisions making up the Sunday Thunder racing program will return to Tri-City Raceway Park this Sunday, May 30. Jared Miley was the winner of that special event, and Jacob Gomola and Justin Clark split the Allegheny Sprint Tour 305 Sprint Car races that supported the ULMS show.
Two-time victor, Jack Sodeman, Jr., has a commanding 31 point lead in the championship standings in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Car ranks. Brandon Matus, who recently scored a win at another area speedway, sits in second even though he has yet to cash in at the Venango County oval. Kyle Colwell will be back with the 360 engine between the rails of his Sprint Car after running against the 305s last week. Colwell had mechanical troubles, so he will be looking to return to form against the more powerful 410s. Consistency has been Colwell’s strength despite his horsepower disadvantage.
Competition will be provided by veteran Brent Matus and youngster Chase Matheny. George Hobaugh, another winner on the Western PA circuit, should be back in action, along with A.J. Flick, who has a win and a crash on his Tri-City resume so far this season.
New Yorker Matt Farnham has been fast in his Tri-City appearances, and he wants to carry the winner’s share north of the border. But Carl Bowser, Darrin Gallagher, Bob Felmlee, and Brandon Spithaler may have something to say about that.
A question in the minds of many fans is whether any 410 Sprint racers will drop in unexpectedly to log some seat time at Tri-City in preparation for the Western PA Speedweek finale coming up on June 6. You will want to be on hand for both contests as the Sprint Cars present hair-raising speeds on the big half mile.
Jeremiah Shingledecker and Kevin Hoffman, the last two winners in the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds, will square off once again. Jimmy Holden and defending track champion, Kyle Fink, are just two of the drivers looking to score their first wins of the 2021 season. Teenager Nathan McDowell is looking to improve on his recent top five finish. Could this be his moment in the sun?
A number of Empire State racers, headed by Nick Joy and Kyle Inman, and including Chad Brachmann and Greg Martin, add diversity and depth to the 358 Modified field.
Franklin’s Josh Seippel has a slim two point margin over William Hurrelbrink in the Pro Stock class, presented by Hovis Auto & Truck Supply. Veteran Bobby Whitling and teenager Tyler Wyant are divisional winners too, so fans of all ages can readily identify with the racers in this highly competitive group.
However, the closest championship contest is in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. Dalton Speer and Justin Bailey are tied at the top of the standings, but Pat Hanlon and Evan Sobieski are within striking distance. The Mini Stocks are the most affordable class that competes at Tri-City Raceway Park, so if you are looking to join in the fun, that may be the class to start in.
Regular event ticket pricing will apply this Sunday. So, adults (ages 16-62) will be admitted for $15, and seniors (ages 62 and up) will see the show for $13. Students (ages 11-16) will be just $10. Children (age 10 and under) will be admitted free. The Family Pass will be available for two adults and two students at $45. Pit Passes will be $30.
The starting time will be 6 p.m., with practice sessions beginning a half hour earlier. Spectators can enter the grounds at 4 p.m. and the racers can get situated in the Pits beginning at 2 p.m.
Remember that you can get information regarding Tri-City Raceway Park by calling the track office, at 724-967-4601, or via e-mail at tricityracewaypark2020@gmail.com. You can also check out the website at www.Tri-CityRacewayPark.com, or the Facebook page at Tri City Raceway Park. Tri-City Raceway Park is located on State Route 3430 in Oakland Township, which is a short ride outside the City of Franklin.

SawBlade.com Sponsored Bogucki Scores First ASCS National Tour Triumph of Season

Inside Line Promotions – KNOXVILLE, Iowa (May 26, 2021) – Scott Bogucki has enjoyed a fast race car without much luck this year.

Fortune changed last Friday when the SawBlade.com driver caught a break late in the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour main event at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill. Bogucki was running second when the leader had an incident with a car he was trying to lap. That gave Bogucki the top spot and he took advantage to lead the final six laps for his first triumph of the season.

“I feel like it’s been a lot longer coming and we should have had one earlier, but it was good to get it out of the way,” he said. “It builds the confidence. We’ve had speed all year. We just haven’t had the luck to go with it. We got it together and nearly got it together again at Knoxville the next day.”

Bogucki was once again fast throughout Friday night. He powered from third to win a heat race and was the high-point driver. He drew the No. 2 in the feature redraw and maintained second place throughout most of the 25-lap race before inheriting the lead.

The victory – his fifth career ASCS National Tour triumph – moved him to fourth in the championship standings and only 88 points out of the lead.

With rain washing out the ensuing night’s ASCS National Tour show, Bogucki headed to Knoxville Raceway. He qualified seventh quickest and advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race. That lined him up on the outside of the third row for the main event.

“We’re always good when we go there, but we were really, really tight early on,” he said. “We finally got freed up come feature-time.”

Bogucki quickly worked his way toward the front and he took the lead on Lap 7. He looked to be cruising to his second win of the weekend, but a late caution bunched the field together.

“On the restart the motor stumbled,” he said. “I should have covered the slider, but I didn’t. That’s on me and we got passed for the lead.”

Bogucki’s runner-up result was his sixth top five of the season.

Up next will be the Sprint and Midget Nationals presented by The Drivers Project this Saturday and Sunday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

“Hopefully we can carry the speed we’ve got and keep the ball rolling,” he said. “It’s a confidence game and once you get going you’re going.

“We’ve had some good runs there. I ran third a couple of years ago in a big race. The last time we were there was a regional race earlier this year and we should have at least ran second, but we got that flat tire. Hopefully this weekend goes well.”

QUICK RESULTS –

May 21 – Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill. – Heat race: 1 (3); Feature: 1 (2).

May 22 – Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa – Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 3 (4); Feature: 2 (6).

Dover Earns MSTS Season-Opening Victory at Rapid Before Scoring Third Straight Top 10 at Huset's

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (May 26, 2021) - Jack Dover captured the Midwest Sprint Touring Series season opener last Friday at Rapid Speedway for his second triumph of the year.

Dover hustled from seventh to third place in a heat race at the dirt oval in Rock Rapids, Iowa. That earned a spot into the feature redraw. He pulled the No. 3 to line up on the inside of the second row, but it didn't take long for Dover to find the top spot.

"In hot laps I felt like we were garbage," he said. "I came in, looked over the car and we found something that was pretty obvious. We went out in the heat and had a good run. Then in the feature we were pretty good. I could go whenever I wanted, which is always a plus whenever your car can do that. We were able to hit the bottom in turns one and two to take the lead right away and never looked back."

Dover led the distance of the race for his 34th career victory with the series and fourth in the last six races dating back to last season.

Dover returned to action in the Rick and Chris Bowers' No. 81 sprint car on Sunday at Huset's Speedway, where the team struggled early. Dover qualified 13th quickest before rallying from seventh to fifth place in a heat race. That garnered the 11th starting position for the main event.

Dover advanced a trio of positions to post an eighth-place result, which was his third straight top 10 to start the season at Huset's Speedway. He ranks sixth in the championship standings - only 38 points out of the lead. Dover is one of only two drivers to record a top 10 during each race at the track this season.

"We were off in time trials," he said. "The track was still pretty good in the heats and we made up a couple of spots. Then in the feature I tried both lines and it seemed wherever we went we were just as fast as anybody around us. With about 10 or 12 laps to go it started to rubber up so there wasn't many opportunities to pass."

This weekend features a busy four-race slate with Midwest Sprint Touring Series events on Friday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., and Saturday at I-90 Speedway in Hartford, S.D. Dover will drive his car during those events before teaming up with the Bowers on Sunday and Monday at Huset's Speedway for a Northern Outlaw Sprint Association doubleheader.

"I'm looking forward to it," he said. 'The last time we were at Jackson in my personal car was when we won the Jackson Nationals. We have a pretty good baseline going into it and we won last Friday in my car so I feel we're pretty close. And obviously any time we go to I-90 we get around there pretty well. I'm looking forward to going back to Huset's and being able to learn some more and hopefully come out of there with some top 10s and maybe top fives."

QUICK RESULTS -

May 21 - Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa - Heat race: 3 (7); Feature: 1 (3).

May 23 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 13; Heat race: 5 (7); Feature: 8 (11).

SEASON STATS -

10 races, 2 wins, 5 top fives, 8 top 10s, 10 top 15s, 10 top 20s

Austin McCarl Pockets Pair of Top-10’s with Tarlton Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting two more races in with Tarlton Motorsports over the weekend before returning to the Midwest, Austin McCarl would overcome a Friday night tip over at Ocean Speedway to record an eighth-place finish, before picking up a ninth-place finish with the King of the West Series during his first appearance at Petaluma Speedway on Saturday night.

“We had a really good car on Friday night, I was just going for it late and the opening I shot for closed up and we tipped over,” McCarl said. “Saturday night at Petaluma Speedway, I didn’t get timed in well and then our nose wing got knocked down at the start of the feature, but I was able to turn in some good laps and pick up a few spots.”

Taking part in a 360ci event on Friday night at Ocean Speedway, McCarl would get off to a nice start aboard the Tarlton and Son, Inc./EZ Haul/Executive Auto Sales backed No. 21 entry as he timed in eighth fastest amongst the 24 cars check in.

Picking up a heat race win in convincing fashion, the Altoona, IA driver moved into the Dash where his sixth-place finish lined him up on the outside of the third row for the 30-lap feature event.

When the race came to life, McCarl would continue to show speed on the racy bullring located on the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds. Moving his way through the Top-10, a restart would see McCarl look to make a big move, however it would result in him getting the Tarlton Motorsports mount upside down.

Able to restart, McCarl would have his elbows up from the rear of the field as he worked his way back into the Top-10 and finished eighth.

Saturday night the scene shifted to Petaluma Speedway in Petaluma, CA where McCarl and company would resume action with the King of the West Series.

19 cars would check in for battle on this night, and “AMAC” kicked the night off by timing in 15th overall in time trials.

Lining up fifth in his heat race, McCarl would continue to adapt to the tricky track as his fourth place finish would put him 12th on the starting grid for the feature event.

When the green flag flew on the feature, mass chaos would ensue, and though McCarl would not stop in the incident, he would endure nose wing damage which would make for an interesting feature event.

Though he gained a few spot from the melee, McCarl was pleased with how he felt in what was ultimately a non-stop 30-lap feature event.
Keeping his mount inside the Top-10 for the second consecutive night, McCarl would cap his weekend off with a ninth place finish.

“Big thanks to Paul Baines, and the entire Tarlton Motorsports crew for continuing to work hard help me acclimate to these places that I have never been to,” McCarl said. “I know we will be even better when we start getting to these places for a second, and third time. I also want to thank to Tarlton family for continuing to give me a great opportunity to run out West.”


Tarlton Motorsports would like to thank Tarlton and Son, Inc., EZ Haul, Executive Auto Sales, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, All Star Performance, and BG Lubricants for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 9, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 3, Top 10’s: 6.

ON TAP: Tarlton Motorsports’ next event will be the KWS double header weekend taking place June 11th at Ocean Speedway and June 12th at Placerville Speedway..

Matt Covington

CG Motorsports- GLENPOOL, Ok. (May 26th, 2021) Matt Covington had a strong podium finish last Friday night at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, IL with the ASCS National Tour.

After a good heat race draw, Covington capitalized to get the win from outside row one. This earned him a spot in the redraw where he pulled the number 4 pill.

With the feature underway, Matt found himself driving hard, dicing it up with the leaders. Once he worked into 2nd, he set his sights on the leader. As the race progressed, Matt was unable to advance and struggled to maintain the speed. After a bobble on the high side where he tagged the fence, Matt was shuffled back to 3rd on-corner exit. There he remained until the fall of the checkered flag.

“It was a decent weekend,” stated Covington. “We’ve been so competitive and fast lately that we’re definitely hungrier for the wins. Those top-5’s can only satisfy you for so long. A good pill draw and a rocket ship of a car for the heat race set us up well in the feature. The mistakes cost me 2nd I feel like, but I also had to fight the car towards the end. But I’m happy with balance we have right now. We enjoyed getting back to the home shop this week to get everything fresh and ready for Lake Ozarks.”

Covington has an ASCS National Tour doubleheader at Lake Ozark Speedway this Memorial Day weekend.

Matt and his CG Motorsports team would like to thank all partners who will make this 2021 season possible. We look forward to the continued relationship throughout the year, along with future seasons to come: Triple X Chassis, A-Rock Materials, All-Star Performance, Loose Change, South Plains Towing, Outlaw Wings, Winters Performance, Smiley’s Racing Products, Hoosier Tire, Keizer Wheels, Lucas Oil Racing Products, Factor 1 Racing, Wilwood Brakes, Smith Titanium, Best Graphics, Simpson Race Products, Shark Racing Engines, Huggins Cams, Eaton Industrial, Hot Rod Powder Coating, Rod End Supply, Maxwell Oil, Schoenfeld Headers, CSI Shocks, KSE Steering, Edison Auto Body, Brodix Cylinder Heads, Swindell Bleeders, D&W Towing, Griffith Truck & Equipment, and T&L Foundry.

Walter turns in career-best IRA effort at Beaver Dam Raceway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) May 26, 2021 – In six seasons of 410 Sprint Car racing competition, 17th year driver Josh Walter of Plymouth had never previously enjoyed a night quite like the one he and his Torque Racing team put together in a Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series event at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Saturday, May 22.

Not only did Walter earn a heat race victory and a spot in the second IRA dash, he also equaled his career-best IRA A-main finish by placing a strong fourth in the 30-lap main event.

Walter was among 26 IRA 410 Sprint Car drivers to sign in for the program, which marked the Torque Racing team’s third IRA event of the 2021 season.

The former Midwest Sprint Car Association standout qualified 12th with a lap of 12.289 seconds to earn the pole for the third 10-lap IRA heat race. Walter got the jump on outside front row starter Scott Bietzer and survived a brush with the wall to earn his first heat race victory of the season and a spot in the second IRA dash.

After starting second in the second four-lap IRA dash, Walter placed third to secure the sixth starting position in the 30-lap headliner.

Walter used a strong start to settle into the fourth spot in the running order as the laps wound down. With four laps remaining, the second- and third-place cars of Blake Nimee and Scotty Neitzel made contact, which sent Neitzel into the turn four wall.

With Neitzel out of the race, Walter inherited the third position behind race leader Mike Reinke and second-place runner Blake Nimee on the final result. When the race resumed, Jordan Goldesberry worked the low groove to duck underneath the high-riding Walter to assume third.

Walter held on over the final three laps to place fourth, while registering his first top-five A-main showing of the 2021 season and equaling his career-best IRA A-main finish in a race won by Mike Reinke.

Walter and the Torque Racing team will return to action on Friday, May 28 for an IRA event at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. The Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Cars and Legends will also be on the card for the inaugural Fuzzy Fassbender Classic

Pit gates open at 3 p.m., spectator gates are set to open at 4 p.m. with warm ups at 5 p.m. and hot laps, qualifying and racing to follow with opening ceremonies slated for 6:30 p.m.

The 2021 Torque Racing pit crew includes Chad DeKarske, Justin Vorpagel, Andrew Rieth, Mike Behr, Noah Koepke, Dean Shelinske, Tiffany Vorpagel and Stephanie Walter.

“Our team is made up of many sponsors, silent sponsors, crew members, friends and family members,” Torque Racing 410 Sprint Car driver Josh Walter said. “That is why we call ourselves Torque Racing. When I first started racing, it was Josh Walter Racing, but I just didn't feel right having my name on the car when so many other people have been involved and take just as much pride in our race team as I do. It all starts with my wife, Stephanie, and kids allowing me the time away to go race and work on the car.”

Torque Racing Pit Crew Spotlight – Jason Vorpagel, car chief

“Justin ‘Duff’ Vorpagel is the car chief,” Walter said. “He takes care of everything on the car for maintenance. On race nights, he heads up tire pressures, fuel, engine heat and overall car preparation.”

Torque Racing sponsors for the 2021 season include Dlapa Construction, Brittany's School of Dance, Sheboygan by Owner, SCA Inc., Cow Pies, Full Throttle Ink, Lakehouse Bar & Grill, Home Transitions, Oostburg Concrete Products, RC Custom Design and Pedal Down Promotions. Torque Racing Sponsor Showcase – Oostburg Concrete Products The Torque Racing team is pleased to have Oostburg Concrete Products of Oostburg, Wis. on board as a sponsor.

Oostburg Concrete Products’ recent investment in equipment allows the company to pour concrete through most of the winter months.

One of the original owners, Gordon Veldboom Sr. became the sole owner in 1959. Today, the company is owned and operated by Gordon J. Veldboom Jr., his wife, Helen, and their son, John.

Former Kings Royal Winner Enters Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series “All Star Sprint Car Showdown” at Texas Motor Speedway’s Dirt Track!

Garland TX (05/26/21) by DarinShort.com. Former Kings Royal champion, 17-time World of Outlaws feature winner, National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum inductee, and former Knoxville Raceway track champion, Johnny Herrera, has entered the June 10-11 Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series “All Star Sprint Car Showdown” at the 4/10-mile Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track.

Johnny comments: “Well, I’ve always enjoyed racing at Texas Motor Speedway, had a win there, run well, and this particular event fits in my schedule. When Mark Huddleston and Chris Stivers contacted me about running Mark’s car, I said you bet. I’m already going to be there working the wrenches on Kade and Chance Morton’s cars – so it all pieced together. The ‘Bandits rules definitely makes for more competitive racing throughout the field, and the two-tire rule is a good thing. You have to get your car setup right, and it helps put the driver back in the seat, so it’s not a bad gig! I’ve wrenched on Harli’s car at two ‘Bandits events, so I’m familiar with the rules and I’m looking forward to seeing the race fans there too!”

Herrera will be behind the wheel of the Mark Huddleston owned number 45x, wrenched by Chris Stivers and sponsored in part by Stivers Motors, Murphy & Son Timber and DarinShort.com.

Beyond the success of his World of Outlaws career, Herrera has collected wins and championships in various forms of winged and non-winged open wheel racing divisions.

Discount grandstand tickets are now available (and fee-free!) at the event info hub.

Mel and Marlyn Hall Memorial up next for Sprint Car Challenge Tour this Sunday

By Gary Thomas

Marysville, CA – May 25, 2021…For the first time in its brief history the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards is prepared to head for the Marysville Raceway this Sunday May 30th, as part of the annual “Mel and Marlyn Hall Memorial.”

Racing was certainly a passion of the Hall family. They epitomized the great strengths of being at the forefront of the sport when it came to on-track racing and off-track promotions. Mel Hall believed in a united Sprint Car traveling organization and in the early 1990’s was one of the founding fathers of the Civil War Series, fundamentally what the Sprint Car Challenge Tour continues in the Golden State.

With their unmeasurable work ethic, the Hall’s were heavily involved in the now defunct Ernie Purcell Speedway in Grass Valley, before taking over operation of Twin Cities Speedway (now Marysville Raceway) in late 1994. Hall is credited with bringing professional Sprint Car racing to the Yuba-Sutter facility, which persists to this very day under the current management of Dennis Gage Promotions.

The Hall’s left their ego at the door and did the things needed for a successful series and management of Marysville Raceway. They never did this for the fame and glory or pats on the back. They were simple people who had a vision and did the best they could to make it a reality. Mel passed away on May 22, 1999 and we lost Marilyn in August of last year. The event held in their memory remains as a cornerstone of the track schedule.

Redding’s Chase Majdic continues to sit atop the Sprint Car Challenge Tour standings heading into Marysville Raceway on Sunday. The driver of the Mittry Motorsports/ Farmer’s Brewing Co. No. 2X has tallied a trio of top-five finishes in the first four events held. Majdic maintains a 14-point advantage over Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick, who scored victory during the SCCT opener back in March. The 19-year-old frequently gets around Marysville in good fashion and will be a favorite at the Hall.

Recent Placerville winner Justyn Cox goes into Memorial Day weekend ranking third in points but is just 17 back of Majdic for the top-spot. The Clarksburg racer captured the Hall Memorial back in 2013. Foresthill’s Ryan Robinson and Roseville’s Colby Copeland complete the top-five in the Sprint Car Challenge Tour standings. Robinson earned a victory at Placerville Speedway on May 15th and Copeland is fresh off a runner up during the most recent SCCT event in Hanford.

Rounding out the top-10 in the points heading into the Mel and Marlyn Hall Memorial are Blake Carrick, Sean Becker, Isaiah Vasquez, Max Mittry and four-time event winner Andy Forsberg.

AMERICAN SPEED U.S. NATIONALS ALREADY OVER 20 ENTRIES

May 25, 2021 – Must See Racing officials today confirmed that the inaugural American Speed U.S. Nationals scheduled for this weekend May 28-29 has already topped 20 entries. The Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro will battle it out Friday and Saturday at Kalamazoo Speedway in Kalamazoo, Michigan with a 50 lap feature and a $5,000 payday on Saturday night.

After last weekend’s two-day visit to Anderson Motor Speedway near Anderson, South Carolina, it didn’t appear a strong field of cars would be available for this weekend’s event. A lap-one crash last Friday night saw nearly half the field collected in the accident after Jacob Dolinar did a slow lazy spin entering turn two. From there cars went crashing and the cars of Todd McQuillen, Joe Speakman and Charlie Schultz flipping.

For many of the MSR teams it has been a mad dash to get cars ready. The series is in the midst of a three-race stretch that will end with a two-day visit to the Indianapolis Speedrome June 4-5. Cars are at a premium right now.
Ohio car owner John Reiser regularly fields two cars in the series with drivers Adam Biltz and Charlie Schultz. It appeared as if he wouldn’t have any cars from his stable ready for this weekends race. A quick phone call to Reiser on Monday afternoon revealed that its full speed ahead for the team and they anticipated having two cars available. It first appeared both his cars may have been totaled. Reiser may have been hit harder in the accident than many other car owners.

“The #9s that Charlie Schultz drives for me is unrepairable” explains Reiser. ”We took it all apart and thought we could repair the frame. Its not worth repairing. We have another car in our stable that we are able to use for this weekend. People won’t be able to tell it’s a different car. Its already lettered and everything. It was just a matter of changing motors and plumbing.

The #8a that Adam Biltz drives was fine as far as the frame. It was just a lot of wing damage and front-end parts. We got spare wings and stuff. Both cars will be there”.

Reiser explained why it was important to get both cars back on the track to support the American Speed U.S. Nationals. “Every night we’ve last week, this weekend, and this week we’ve been working on the cars. Either tonight or tomorrow night we’re gonna shake down the other car. It doesn’t have any laps on it. I think most of the guys have been able to get their cars repaired in time for this weekend’s race except Joe Speakman. We don’t race for points. Its just a matter that we love racing. There aren’t a whole lot of races and I’m just worried we won’t have any races. I’m just trying to help the series out” concluded Reiser.

This weekend’s event will also feature the Midwest Supermodified Series and Maxima Racing Oils Midwest Lights. A rare triple header of open wheel racing. For those that cant make it the event will be streamed live at www.mustseeracing.tv for $19.99 or $24.99 for both nights of racing action

 

Kerry Madsen guides TSR No. 14 to All Star top-tens at Circle City and Gas City

Dates: Thursday and Friday, May 20th-21st Event: All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation Series: All Star Circuit of Champions Track: Circle City Raceway (Indianapolis, Indiana) Kerry Madsen A-Main Finishes (Start): Thursday: 8th (6th) Friday: 13th (7th)

Date: Saturday, May 22nd Event: All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation Series: All Star Circuit of Champions Track: Gas City I-69 Speedway (Gas City, Indiana) Kerry Madsen A-Main Finish (Start): 4th (9th)

Date: Sunday, May 23rd Event: Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race Series: All Star Circuit of Champions Track: Kokomo Speedway (Kokomo, Indiana) Kerry Madsen A-Main Finish (Start): 18th (4th)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (May 25, 2021) - Continuing his role as the primary wheelman for the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing No. 14 sprint car, temporarily filling the seat for three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and NASCAR Hall of Famer Tony Stewart, the “Madman” Kerry Madsen once again powered the TSR hotrod to success, capping the recent All Star Circuit of Champions four-race swing through Indiana with a pair of top-ten finishes, highlighting the weekend with a fourth-place effort at Gas City I-69 Speedway on Saturday, May 22. Madsen started ninth on the feature lineup and worked his way into a top-five position by halfway; a great rebound after missing the evening’s dash due to mechanical issues.

Two nights prior, Madsen and TSR kicked-off the All Stars Indiana Invasion weekend with an eighth-place score at the all-new Circle City Raceway just outside of Indianapolis. Madsen finished third in his respective dash which allowed the former Australian Sprint Car Champion and Knoxville Raceway track champion to start sixth on the feature grid.

Perhaps his best performance of the weekend until lapped traffic ended his campaign abruptly, Madsen was on his way to a $26,000 payday during Kokomo Speedway’s Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race on Sunday, May 23, when disaster struck.

While leading with six laps remaining, Madsen made contact with a lapped car forcing the Rush Truck Centers/Advance Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Digital Ally/Sage Fruit/FloRacing/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Mobil 1/Carquest Auto Parts/J&J Auto Racing/No. 14 sprint car to leave the speedway on a hook; he was scored 18th.

Plans for the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing No. 14 team remain uncertain. Fans should keep alert online, as well as on social media, for any updates pertaining to the team’s upcoming schedule.

MSA 360 Sprint Car drivers gear up to honor
racing legend at Fuzzy Fassbender Classic

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) May 25, 2021 – A highly competitive field of Akright Auto Parts of Sheboygan Falls Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car drivers is expected to converge for a high-speed battle in tribute to a late Southeastern Wisconsin racing legend for the inaugural Fuzzy Fassbender Classic on the MSA series’ fastest track - the Dodge County Fairgrounds “horsepower half mile” in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, May 28.

The special event is set to be run in memory of Ernest “Fuzzy” “The Hound” Fassbender, who was a highly successful Modified driver during his lengthy racing career, which ran from 1949 to 1982, as well as one of the key organizers and contributors to the racing program at the Dodge County Fairgrounds facility over the years.

Fassbender, who passed away in January 2019, was part of the inaugural class to be inducted into the Southeast Wisconsin Short Track Hall of Fame in Hartford in 2007.

Four-time MSA champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh, who is running a limited MSA schedule this year, swept series action at the high-speed Dodge County Fairground facility last year, with victories on September 25, as well as in the fourth annual Harry Neitzel Memorial race on Sept. 4.

Among the favorites to visit victory lane in the debut edition of the Fuzzy Fassbender Classic are current MSA point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan, who has tallied two MSA A-main victories in 2021, as well as 2011 MSA champion Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove, who has also visited victory lane twice in MSA competition in 2021, and five-time MSA champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee, who won the 2017 Harry Neitzel Tribute Race at the Dodge County Fairgrounds and owns one MSA A-main win in 2021.

Other top MSA contenders expected to join the Fuzzy Fassbender Classic field include 2018 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car champion Justin Miller of Plymouth, who has claimed one MSA A-main victory this year at The Plymouth Dirt Track, third-year competitor Justin Erickson of Plymouth, 2005 MSA champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett, Will Gerrits of Waupun, Tim Haddy of Waupun, top MSA rookie of the year candidate Matt Rechek of Beaver Dam and Adam Miller of Plymouth.

Also on the card will be the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series, along with the Modified division.

Pit gates open at 3 p.m., spectator gates are set to open at 4 p.m. with warm ups at 5 p.m. and hot laps, qualifying and racing to follow with opening ceremonies slated for 6:30 p.m.

Spectator admission is $25 for adults with kids 6-12 $5 and children 5 and under admitted free. Pit admission is $30.

Alex Pokorski keeps eyes on Plymouth A-main prize

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) May 25, 2021 – One week after a mechanical issue in heat race action derailed Alex Pokorski’s goal of making The Plymouth Dirt Track Racing A-main field, the second-year driver’s luck continued to be on the sour side during a Midwest Sprint Car Association doubleheader weekend of action at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, May 22 and the MSA’s return to Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. following a one-year COVID-19-induced absence on Sunday, May 23.

Pokorski, who was among 31 PDTR 360 Sprint Car on hand for the fourth event of the 2021 season at The Plymouth Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds on Saturday, May 22, lined up sixth in the third 10-lap heat race.

After initially moving up two spots in turn two of the opening lap, Pokorski fell back to seventh in the running order in turn four of the first lap of the race. On lap 6, Pokorski worked his way around Katelyn Krebsbach to take over the sixth spot, which is where he finished.

Pokorski then lined up sixth in the 15-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car B main in search of a top-six finish to claim a berth in the 25-lap A main. Caution flags slowed the pace twice in the early going with Pokorski maintaining the sixth spot.

On the lap 4 restart, Pokorski got bottled up behind two spinning cars in turn one, which prompted him to get hard on the brakes and loop his car to bring out the third caution flag of the race.

After restarting 10th, Pokorski was able to work his way around Katelyn Krebsbach to record a ninth-place finish in the 15-lap event.

“I felt a bit unlucky in the B main having to spin to avoid the cars getting together in front of me,” Pokorski said. “Hopefully, we can get into an A main soon at Plymouth.”

On Sunday, May 23, Pokorski made his debut appearance at the iconic Angell Park Speedway, which remained closed throughout the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pokorski, who was among 22 MSA drivers on hand for the event, started fifth in the third 10-lap MSA heat race and fell to seventh on the opening lap on the narrow and fast track surface. Pokorski maintained the seventh spot at the finish.

Rain hit the track at the conclusion of heat race action to force the cancellation of the A main.

“Angell Park was fun to race at and was a nice change from Plymouth,” Pokorski said. “It has a unique shape, unlike anything else I’ve raced on.”

After skipping the next MSA series event at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, May 28, the Pokorski Motorsports team will return to action on Saturday, May 29, at The Plymouth Dirt Track .at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. with Alex Pokorski again slated to be behind the wheel.

Pit gates at Plymouth open at 2 p.m., the grandstand opens at 3:30 p.m. with hot laps at 4:30 p.m. and racing starting at 5 p.m.

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

2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Fourth | 3506 points [150 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (May 25, 2021) - Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing put together a successful string of results during their recent World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series stretch, ultimately translating a trio of A-Main starts into a pair of top-five outcomes, highlighting the week with a runner-up finish at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, on Friday, May 21.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Carquest Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Sage Fruit/Digital Ally/Advance Auto Parts/Rush Truck Centers/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, was actually battling for third at Attica when the main event’s final caution appeared on the white flag lap, displayed for race leader, Sheldon Haudenschild, who fell victim to a spinning lapped car. Fellow WoO championship contender, David Gravel, inherited the top spot and drove on to score the win.

“I don’t know if we could’ve got him, we just seemed to struggle at the end,” Schatz claimed afterwards at Attica. “These guys are digging, though. We’re doing everything we can. We’ll get there, it’s just taking longer than we expected.”

Prior to his Attica visit, the ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion kicked-off his recent stretch with a fourth-place result at Bridgeport Motorsports Park in Swedesboro, New Jersey, on Tuesday, May 18. It was a solid night across the board for Schatz, as the Fargo, North Dakota-native timed second quick overall, finished second during his respective heat race and third in the evening’s dash.

Despite having to start 19th, Schatz’ Sharon Speedway finish on Saturday, May 22, was respectable in its own right, eventually climbing ahead eight spots to salvage an eleventh-place finish. Schatz was forced to start deep after failing to transfer out of his respective heat race; mechanical issues were the culprit, but he would go on to win the Last Chance Showdown.

Schatz’ recent successes not only padded the stat book, now with 15 top-five finishes in 26 World of Outlaws starts, but Schatz also used his momentum boost to climb to fourth in the Series title chase; a two-spot climb since the Morgan Cup doubleheader at Williams Grove Speedway.

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewat/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series title chase with a two-pack in the Hoosier State, set to invade the Terre Haute Action Track on Friday, May 28, followed by a routine visit to the highbanks of Lawrenceburg Speedway on Monday, May 31. Still in search of that elusive milestone victory, a win on Friday at Terre Haute would propel Schatz’ World of Outlaws win total to 300 all-time.

Track: Kokomo Speedway (Kokomo, Indiana)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 3rd (3rd)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (May 25, 2021) - Despite kicking-off the weekend with a hard-fought 18th-place score at the all-new Circle City Raceway on Thursday, May 20, Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing made big headlines during their recent four-race sweep, ultimately capping the All Stars Indiana Invasion presented by Rayce Rudeen Foundation with three consecutive podium finishes, highlighting the weekend with a third-place effort during the $26,000-to-win Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race at Kokomo Speedway on Sunday, May 23. Abreu battled for a top-five spot the entire 40-lap distance, forced to duel the likes of Tyler Courtney, Kerry Madsen, and eventual winner, Zeb Wise.

Abreu, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Rowdy Energy/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Self Made Racing/Stadelhofer Construction/The Wiser Agency/No. 24 sprint car, earned his first podium performance of the weekend during Circle City Raceway’s $10,000-to-win finale on Friday, May 21, crossing the line second after starting from the pole position. Abreu led a portion of the main event, taking control over hometown favorite Tyler Courtney on lap 14 before Courtney returned the favor on lap 24.

In much similar fashion, Abreu went on to finish second the following evening at Gas City I-69 Speedway, again leading a portion of the program from the pole, the first 15 laps, before eventual winner Cap Henry took command on lap 16. Abreu worked back by Henry for a moment on lap 22, but Henry resumed the point on lap 23.

All Star dash victories at Circle City and Gas City allowed the St. Helena, California-native to start from the point both evenings.

“That was a great weekend for our team. The chemistry and communication within our team continues to build and that’s only going to lead to better and better results. Things were not going so well for us for a while, but things are turning for the better and I’m proud to say we’re on the right track,” Abreu said, who now owns 18 top-ten finishes in 31 starts this season. “My team never gives up and I’m proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish lately. We’re going to keep working hard and the wins will come.”

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with an All Star Circuit of Champions tripleheader in Pennsylvania Posse Country, set to invade Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway for a $49,000 potential on Friday through Sunday, May 28-30. The weekend will kick-off with Williams Grove’s $10,000-to-win Davey Brown Tribute on Friday, followed by the two-day Weikert Memorial at the Port Royal “Speed Palace” on Saturday and Sunday. The Weikert Memorial opener will award a $10,000 payday with the weekend finale shelling out a $29,000 winner’s share.

Justin Sanders Scores 12th and 13th Wins of 2021 As He Reaches the 100 Win Mark for his Career

PETERSEN MEDIA: 2021 has been a season to remember for Justin Sanders, and its only May. Picking up his 12th and 13th wins of the year over the weekend, Sanders reached a career milestone in doing so, as Saturday’s win marked his 100th career feature event win.

“It was a really good weekend,” Justin Sanders said. “To run three different cars, at three different tracks, and pick up two wins and a second is pretty cool. I have to thank each and every individual involved with all three teams for all of their hard work.”

Sanders’ busy weekend kicked off on Friday night at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, CA as he climbed aboard his own JSR No. 17 entry. Timing in fastest overall in time trials aboard the North County Plastering/Andy’s Construction/Roadside 24hr Service mount, Sanders would race to a win in heat race competition.

Picking up the win in the Dash, Sanders would then go on to cap the clean sweep by winning the feature event. Starting on the pole, Sanders would get the jump over Bud Kaeding, as action behind them would heat up before a myriad of cautions would slow the pace.

While the action behind Sanders was wild, the Aromas, CA driver was in complete control up front. Leading from start to finish, Sanders was so strong a bobble late in the race would not hinder him as he would go on to pick up the feature event win.

“I keep saying we aren’t quite where we want to be at Ocean Speedway with our car, but Friday night it felt really good and I was happy to grab another win,” Sanders noted.

Saturday night Sanders climbed aboard the Antaya Motorsports entry as the team resumed their 2021 NARC campaign at Petaluma Speedway. Timing the Fire Protection Management Services No. 16a entry in fastest in time trials again, Sanders would stay red hot as he raced to a third-place finish in heat race action.

Picking up a second-place finish in the Dash, Sanders would put the Antaya Motorsports entry on the front row for the 30-lap feature event as he looked for his 100th career feature event win, as well as his first of the season with car owner, Larry Antaya.

Following a yellow on the opening lap, the race would be run nonstop once it restarted.

Out front at Petaluma Speedway, Sanders was very strong as he kept the field at bay behind him. Fending off Bud Kaeding, Sanders would score his first win of the season in the 16A, his 13th of 2021, and it gave him 100 on his career.

Saturday night the scene shifted to Placerville Speedway and Sanders was back in the seat of the Main Motorsports No. 35m machine. Amidst 36 cars on hand for the rare Sunday night showdown, the Aromas, CA driver would get timed in sixth fastest in his qualifying group.

Picking up the heat race win, Sanders would pull the three in the draw and put the Main Motorsports machine in the second row for the 25-lap feature event.

On an extremely curbed up Placerville Speedway surface, Sanders would go to work on the cushion as he ran up front in search of his third win of the weekend.

Working into the second position by the eighth lap, Sanders would chase after Justyn Cox. Following a late caution, Sanders would take a couple runs at Cox for the race lead, but he couldn’t get anything to stick and capped the weekend off with a second-place finish.

“I had a ton of fun, and it was great to drive three really fast racecars,” Sanders added. “Again, a big thank you to everyone who supports all three of these teams.”

Justin and his team would like to thank North County Plastering, Alkaline88, Andy’s Construction, Roadside 24hr Service, Wicked Cushion, Roger’s Diner, Factory Kahne, BG Labels and Tee’s, Walker Performance Filtration, Dixon and Son Tires, Ernie’s Service Center, East Lake Village, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., DMI, Keizer Wheels, Wings Unlimited, Ti64 Titanium, AIS Heating and Sheet Metal, Fred Lint and Family, JonSan Racing, Sandblast Service, G&N Construction, Steitz Towing, Durden Construction, Ernie’s Service Center, and Steve Duppman Racing for their continued support in 2021.

Carrick Captures Pair of Third Place Finishes

PETERSEN MEDIA: Tanner Carrick was a model of consistency over the weekend. Racing at Stockton Dirt Track on Saturday night, and at Placerville Speedway on Sunday, Carrick would pick up a pair of third place finishes.

“It was a really good weekend for our team, and you can definitely say we are consistent, “ Tanner Carrick said with a smile. “We obviously would have liked to have been two spots better each night, but we are rolling really good right now and hoping we can keep it up with the SCCT this weekend.”

Saturday night at Stockton Dirt Track, a two-heat race format was used, and Carrick would pick up a third-place finish in his first heat and would win the second heat aboard the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83t machine.

Find himself on the front row for the feature event, Carrick would settle into second as he chased after the early leader, Willie Croft. On a fairly narrow surface at the Stockton Dirt Track, a slight bobble early in the race would see Carrick slip up and allow Keith Day, Jr to get by.

With passing tough, Carrick would hold steady on the podium and take third at the waving of the checkered flag.

A rare Sunday night show at Placerville Speedway would see 36 cars check in for the event. Splitting up qualifying groups, the Lincoln, CA pilot would time in fifth fastest.

Racing to a win in heat race action, Carrick would move into the redraw where the ‘one’ would place him on the pole for the 25-lap feature event.

A slick surface with a huge curb was presented to the teams for the feature event, and when the race went green, Carrick would settle into second as Justyn Cox was able to get the jump.

Working the cushion, Carrick would start to reel in Cox as traffic became a factor in the race up front.

As he cut into Cox’s lead, an untimely caution would wave, setting up a double file restart and taking the leaders out of traffic. Getting stuck out in the slick on the restart, Justin Sanders would get by Carrick and he would again go on to close his night out with a third place finish.

“The top was so fast on Saturday night, it was hard to make a pass back on Sanders for the second spot,” Carrick said. “Really happy with how we performed all weekend, and have to thank my guys for all they do.”

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 25, Wins: 2, Top 5’s: 12, Top 10’s: 18

Justyn Cox Wins Sunday Funday at Placerville Speedway with C&M Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- While bad luck has seemed to hinder them all season long, Sunday night Justyn Cox was able to get the monkey of off C&M Motorsports’ back as he broke through and captured the win during Placerville Speedway’s Sunday Funday event.

“It has been a pretty grueling year for our team with issues seemingly knocking us out of some top finishes lately,” Justyn Cox said. “Cody, the guys, and I have a really good balance at Placerville Speedway, and it is great to get them a win and hopefully give us some momentum heading into the summer months.”

36 cars showed up for the rare Sunday program at Placerville Speedway, and Cox would get the night kicked off by timing the C&M Motorsports machine timed in 5th fastest in his qualifying group.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Cox would get the jump and race out to the early lead. Able to pick up the win, Cox would earn a spot in the redraw where the two pill would put him on the front row of the 25-lap feature event.

On a very slick racing surface with a huge cushion built up in both sets of corners, Cox would plant his right rear against the curb and get out to an early lead.

Looking extremely stout on the cushion, Cox would set a torrid pace despite a couple of cautions and red flags hindering his pace. A late restart would see Justin Sanders attempt to wrestle the lead from the Clarksburg, CA driver, but on this night, Justyn Cox would not be denied as he picked up the win.

Saturday night, Cox and company were also in action as they checked in for an ‘open’ show at Stockton Dirt Track.

Running a two-heat format, Cox would record a third-place finish in his first heat race before tallying a second-place finish in heat race number two.

On a very narrow, and one-lane, racing surface, Cox and company would experiment with a few things on the Berco Redwood/Barry Lumber, Inc./Lund Construction mount on this day.

Taking the green flag from the fourth starting position, Cox would keep his machine in the fourth spot for much of the feature as he chased after Tanner Carrick. With the surface remaining narrow in the feature, Cox would hang on to the top five finish as he ended up fourth on this day.

“Overall it was a really solid weekend for our team, and it was much needed after some rotten luck as of late,” Cox said. “I am so happy to get back into victory lane at Placerville Speedway, and really happy to do it with Cody and Mandi.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Berco Redwood, Barry Lumber, Inc., Lund Construction, Anrak, Legacy Specialties, Inc. PT Shocks, Swartz Diesel, Alturas Tires, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

ON TAP: Cox and C&M Motorsports head to Marysville Raceway with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour on Sunday night.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-14, Wins-1, Top 5’s-4, Top 10’s-11

Paul Nienhiser and KO Motorsports Spend Weekend with All Star Circuit of Champions

PETERSEN MEDIA: With rain in Kansas forcing the cancelation of the scheduled USAC National Sprint Car Series events, the KO Motorsports team opted to roll their winged car out and take part in the final two legs of the All Star Circuit of Champions Indiana Invasion presented by the Rayce Rudeen Foundation at Gas City Speedway and Kokomo Speedway.

“We missed the inversion in our heat race on Saturday night, but I felt like we still had a good pace,” Paul Nienhiser said. “We made some adjustments for our heat, but the track lost grip and we were pretty bad.”

Checking in at Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, IN on Saturday night, the Chapin, IL driver would time the CAM2 Blue Bloods Racing Oil/Roadworks/Hutson John Deere backed No. 5k entry in sixth fastest in his group, which placed him sixth on the grid for his heat race.

Struggling on the slick surface in heat race action, the Chapin, IL driver would slip back a couple of positions and his eighth-place finish forced him into the night’s B Main event.

Lining up ninth in the semi, Nienhiser continue to fight the same issues he fought in the heat as he struggled to make grip. When the semi came to an end, so did Nienhiser’s night as he would finish ninth.

Sunday night the scene shifted to Kokomo Speedway for the Rayce Rudeen Foundation race, and Nienhiser would get off to a much better start.

Timing in fourth fastest in his qualifying group, Nienhiser would find himself on the front row of his heat race. Looking to lock into the Dash, as well as into the $26,000.00 to win feature event, Nienhiser would go to work on the highside of the speedway.

Pushing it as hard as he could, Nienhiser would get the job done and pick up the win. Heading into the Dash, Nienhiser would pull the two pill, but he would struggle to make speed as he slipped back to finish fifth.

Going to work on his machine prior to the feature, Nienhiser would take the green flag from the 10th starting position. With their changes not quite helping how they thought they would, Nienhiser would find himself mid pack of the feature event, before pulling off to stay out of the way of the leaders who had a torrid battle going on.

“It was fun to get in some winged racing, and I have to thank the guys for always working hard for me,” Nienhiser said. “We have a quick turnaround this week as we get back to USAC racing at Terre Haute on Wednesday night and possible a trio of shows this weekend.”

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil, Roadworks, Peterbilt, Mason Sound, Innovative Design, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Wessler Bros. Agency, Bob Hawks Auto Body, Fierce Herbicide, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Kaeding Performance, Smith Titanium Products, Vortex Wings, Signature Signs and Design, and Team Simpson for their continued support.

2021 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-18, Wins-1, Top 5’s-3, Top 10’s-7

ON TAP: Nienhiser will meet up with USAC Wednesday night at Terra Haute Action Track, before running Jacksonville Speedway on Friday night in his own No. 9x entry, possibly a return to Indiana on Saturday night at Lincoln Park Speedway on Saturday night, before returning to the seat of Scott Bonar’s No. 50 machine on Sunday night at 34-Raceway.

Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing Seventh at Placerville Speedway’s Sunday Funday

PETERSEN MEDIA- Coming off a tumultuous weekend that saw the F&F Racing team endure a pair of DNF’s, Andy Forsberg and company were back to work on Sunday at Placerville Speedway where the picked up a seventh place finish.

“The car felt really good all night long, and we had good speed, but I made a couple of mistakes in the seat trying to figure the cushion out,” Andy Forsberg said. “It was good to finish a race after what feels like a long dry spell, and like I said really happy with how the car felt.”

36 cars checked in for the rare Sunday night program at Placerville Speedway, and with the field split into two qualifying groups, Forsberg would time in fastest in the second group, and third overall.

Lining up fourth in heat race competition, Forsberg would hang on to finish fourth aboard the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA mount, which was all he needed to do to earn a spot in the redraw.

With a four and eight the two pills left, Forsberg would end up with the four, which placed him in the second row for the 25-lap feature event.

A big curb had built up around the Speedway on this night, leaving the bottom extremely slick and putting much of the field on the cushion. Running in the top=five much of the race, Forsberg would admittedly make a couple of mistakes that cost him a couple of positions as the race moved along.

“The cushion was pretty thick, and you had to be smart about how you ran up against it and I hit it wrong a couple of times and it cost us,” Forsberg said.

Slipping back to seventh, Forsberg would close the night out with his ninth Top-10 of the season with F&F Racing.

“It was a busy weekend for me personally running three nights, and a lot of the crew from the F&F team helped out all three nights as well, so I have to thank them for working really hard,” Forsberg said. “We have kind of a long week ahead before we get back to racing on Sunday at Marysville Raceway.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

Sean Becker Rallies from Tail to Finish 11th with KWS at Petaluma Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- After being involved in an opening lap pile up on Saturday night at Petaluma Speedway, Sean Becker would rally from the tail and finish 11th during what would turn into a nonstop feature event with the King of the West Series.

“It was unfortunate to get caught up in the pile up at the start,” Sean Becker said. “We were in a good position to battle up front, but it just didn’t play out in our favor.”

Getting back to action with the King of the West/NARC Series, Becker would time the Vertullo Motorsports mount in fourth quickest in qualifying time trials.

Picking up a fourth-place finish in heat race competition, ‘The Shark’ would miss out on the Dash and would find himself ninth on the starting grid for the 30-lap feature event.

When the race went green, chaos would ensue up front, and with nowhere to go ninth starting Becker would be on the of the drivers caught up in the action and be forced into the work area.

Able to make repairs, Becker would rejoin the field from the tail end. When the green flag flew for the second time it was on as the next 30-lap would rattle off without interruption.

Working his way forward during the quick show, Becker would make up some of the lost positions as he would rally back to an 11th place finish when the checkered flag was displayed to the field.

Looking to rebound at Placerville Speedway on Sunday night in 360ci action, the Roseville, CA driver would get timed in 11th fastest in his qualifying group with a total of 36 cars on hand.

Finishing fifth in his heat race, Becker would be forced into the ‘B’, however a win in the semi transferred the veteran driver into the 25-lap feature event.

Taking the green flag from 16th, Becker would go to work on the thick cushion that had built up around the ¼ mile bullring. With the bottom groove extremely slick, it would be tough to make moves with most of the field working up top.

When the dust settled on the Sunday night feature, Becker would take the checkered flag with a 14th place finish.

“We struggled in qualifying on Sunday and it put us in a pretty difficult spot all night long,” Becker added. “Still, I need to do a better job of getting through the field no matter where we start. Thanks to everyone at Vertullo Motorsports for their continued support and hard work.”

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-20, Wins-0, Top 5’s- 3, Top-10’s- 9

ON TAP: Becker will return to action with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour on Sunday night at Marysville Raceway with Monhoff Racing.

Croft Claims First Win of Season at Stockton Dirt Track

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to action over the weekend in Northern California, Willie Croft would turn in a masterful performance at the Stockton Dirt Track on Saturday night as he claimed his first feature event win of the season before picking up an eighth-place finish at Placerville Speedway on Sunday night.

“Saturday night my guys really worked hard, and we were awesome every time we hit the track,” Willie Croft said. “We put ourselves in a good spot in the feature event, and we were able to pick up our first win of the season.”

Running a two-heat race format at the Stockton Dirt Track, the Colfax, CA pilot would pick up a second-place finish during his first heat race and backed that up with a win in his second heat race.

Putting himself on the pole of the feature event, Croft would not be denied on this night. Just as he flexed his muscle through heat race action, Croft carried that speed into the feature event as he wired the field and picked up his first win of the season aboard his Holey Smokes BBQ/Rudeen/Art’s Craft Beer backed machine.

Sunday night Croft and company made the trip to Placerville Speedway for Sunday Funday, and Croft would continue to show speed as he timed in third fastest in his group during qualifications.

Needing to win his heat however, to make the draw, Croft’s fourth place finish would move him directly into the feature event, but he would find himself 10th on the starting grid.

A very big cushion had built up around the speedway on this night making the high side the preferred groove which put passing at a premium. Able to make up some ground over the course of the quick feature, Croft capped his weekend off with an eighth-place finish.

“It was good to get our first win out of the way, and to have a lot of speed both nights,’ Croft said. “Thanks to my guys for their hard work, hopefully we can build off of this and have a really good summer.”

Willie Croft Racing would like to thank Holey Smokes BBQ, Rudeen, Art’s Craft Beer Palace, Amerikote, ButlerBuilt , SCI, Brown and Miller, FK Rod Ends, Factory Kahne, Schoenfeld, Team Simpson, Stilo, Smith Precision Products, Kaeding Performance, AL Drivelines, XYZ, Vortex Wings, DoTerra and GUTS for their support in 2021.

Offill Bounces Back in Petaluma, CA After Opening Lap Tangle

PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to Petaluma Speedway on Saturday night with the King of the West Series, Kyle Offill would bounce back from being involved in an opening lap pile up and record a 14th place finish.

“It wasn’t a super exciting weekend for us, but I felt like we made some good laps, and Rod and I got to figure some things out with the 410ci engine bolted in the car,” Kyle Offill said. “We got collected in the opening lap incident and ended up 14th after the race went nonstop.”

Making the trip to Petaluma Speedway for the fourth installment of King of the West Series action in 2021, the Tracy, CA driver would time the Country Builders/Ochoco West Lumber/Reliable Lumber mount in 13th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Battling a stumble during time trials, the team would go to work and make some changes under the hood prior to Offill’s heat race heading on to the speedway.

Lining up fifth in his heat race, the Tracy, CA driver would chase after Sean Becker for the duration of his heat as he looked to pick up a fourth place finish. Settling for fifth at the line, Offill would find himself 13th on the starting grid for the 30-lap feature event.

When the feature event rolled around, chaos would ensue during the race’s opening lap. With cars getting together in front of him, Offill would become part of the issue and get collected in the melee.

Though the damage was moderate, Offill would be forced to the back of the pack for the restart, as the race would eventually click off in nonstop fashion.

Able to make up some of the lost ground over the duration of the 30-lapper, Offill would just about get back to his original starting position as he picked up a handful of positions and finished the night off with a 14th place result.

“I have to thank the guys for their hard work after time trials, and all night long really,” Offill said. “We will keep plugging away and get ready to go for our next race.”

Kyle Offill would like to thank Country Builders, Ochoco West Lumber, Reliable Lumber, Boise Cascade, Inc., Brown and Miller, MAAS Brothers Powder Coating, Offill Family Farms, Tool Tech Construction Supply, HRP, FK Shocks, A.R.T.

Setters Focuses on Continuing Winning Ways at Electric City Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GREAT FALLS, Mont. (May 25, 2021) - James Setters heads into a Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series show at Electric City Speedway this Saturday with momentum.

Setters guided the Mike Quigley owned No. 2 to Victory Lane during the season opener at the bullring in Great Falls, Mont., earlier this month.

"I'm hoping we'll have a couple more cars there this weekend and we can all put on a great race," he said.

Setters won four of five Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series races to capture the championship in 2019 and he claimed five of six series events last year for his second straight title. He is hopeful that trend continues this Saturday.

"We've had a good package and been able to capitalize most of the times we've raced," he said. "The big thing is setting yourself up for success with a good heat race run and we've usually done that."

Saturday marks the second of seven series races at Electric City Speedway this season. There's one race in June, one in July and three in August following this weekend.

Amantea Continues Learning Experience With USAC East Coast Sprint Car Series

Inside Line Promotions - SELINSGROVE, Pa. (May 25, 2021) - Joey Amantea competed in a pair of 360ci sprint car events last weekend, earning a 15th-place finish in winged competition on Friday and a 13 th-place result in non-wing action on Saturday.

"Overall, it wasn't a horrible week, but I know we are definitely better than the results show," he said, "We're gaining on things slowly, but I'm also learning how much I truly don't know about these cars quite yet."

After engines troubles in hot laps halted plans of competing in a wingless micro sprint on Wednesday at Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa., Amantea kicked off the weekend on Friday with the United Racing Club by finishing sixth in a heat race at Big Diamond Speedway in Minersville, Pa. He then started 18th in the A Main and powered forward three positions to earn his ninth top-15 finish of the season.

"I still don't have a ton of experience in the winged car so I was pretty happy just to come out with a top-15 finish," he said. "Every time we get in the winged car it's a learning experience and I learned so much about the cars that I didn't know."

Saturday marked a first-ever visit to Selinsgrove Speedway for Amantea and he took a liking to the track instantly by being fastest in Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars hot laps. He was challenging for a heat race win from the fourth starting position before hitting a rut and falling back to finish fifth. He then ended where he started - 13th - in the feature to garner his second top-15 outing in as many days.

"We were really fast right out of the gate and I knew we had a car capable of contending," he said. "I almost flipped it in the heat race and managed to save it to get in the show, but it really killed our night and put us behind the eight ball the rest of the night."

Next up for Amantea will be a pair of wingless micro sprint starts at Action Track USA on Wednesday and at Greenwood Valley Action Track in Orangeville, Pa., on Saturday. In between he'll make a stop at Big Diamond Speedway on Friday to compete with the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars.

He enters the weekend currently 10th in the championship standings and only trails fifth place by 31 markers.

"The points deal is really close across the board so it seems like we can make up some ground with a few good runs," he said. "If we can get a little luck on our side, I don't see any reason we can't come home with a top 10 and move up a few spots."

QUICK RESULTS -

May 21 - Big Diamond Speedway in Minersville, Pa. - Heat race: 6 (7); Feature: 15 (18).

May 22 - Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa. - Heat race: 5 (4); Feature: 13 (13).

Ramey Looking to Rebound This Weekend at Lake Ozark Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GRANITE CITY, Ill. (May 25, 2021) - Gunner Ramey's first appearance at Tri-City Speedway didn't pan out as he would have liked last Friday when the dirt oval hosted the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

Ramey started first in his heat race, but a dead right front torsion bar hindered the car's performance and made it hard to drive. The 18-year-old dropped two positions to finish third.

The Terry Doogs Racing crew replaced the torsion bar before heading out to the feature, in which Ramey started 13th.

Ramey lost a few positions at the start of the 25-lap main event, but as the laps clicked off he began to pass cars for position.

"I felt like it took us a little while to get going, but once we got a couple laps in we were really fast," he said.

Ramey had nearly made it to the top 10 and was gaining when his right rear tire hit the frontstretch wall with approximately 10 laps remaining, causing Ramey to flip and end his night prematurely. The driver of the No. 21 climbed out of his car under his own power, thankfully uninjured in the single-car incident.

"It was an unfortunate situation because I knew we had a top 10 in sight for sure," he said.

Ramey and his team elected to stay home Saturday to repair the damage and get the car prepared for Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., this weekend. He is looking to have a strong rebound when he competes with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour on Saturday and Sunday night during the Sprint and Midget Nationals presented by The Drivers Project.

"I'm looking forward to getting back in the seat and building on the momentum we had before the incident," he said. "We had a fast car and were able to make passes, and there's no reason that it won't continue this weekend."

Hill Captures Career-Best ASCS National Tour Result at Tri-City Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ROSSBURG, Ohio (May 25, 2021) - Alex Hill rallied to score her career-best finish with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour on Friday night at Tri-City Speedway, where Hill crossed the finish line eighth after being forced to restart at the rear of the field with 15 laps to go in the 25-lap race.

"We had a really good car at Tri-City," said Hill, who started ninth in the night's main event at the oval in Granite City, Ill. "I was in 10 th when we had a red flag. When we refired, the motor stuttered a little so I pulled it out of gear and then back into gear and had them push me off again. Since I started a second time I had to restart the race at the rear. But we were still able to come back and finish eighth, so I was pretty happy about that."

Hill's night started off with a solid heat race run.

"I started third in my heat race, but dropped back to fifth," she said. "Then I was able to get by J.J. Hickle and Carson McCarl to finish third."

When rain washed out the ASCS National Tour race scheduled at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., the following night, the Hill's Racing Team driver headed to Eldora Speedway to compete with the NRA Sprint Invaders. Her evening started out strong with a heat race victory.

"I got a good start and was able to take the lead right away and it was just hammer-down after that," said Hill, who started on the pole.

She lined up fourth in the feature and showed speed throughout the race until disaster struck in the closing laps.

"We were running third early in the race, then lost a couple of spots," she said. "I think we were running around sixth with four laps to go when I got fed a right rear and it sent me straight into the wall. I'm not sure what happened. I think she was trying to slide me and it didn't clear, but I don't really know."

It was the second hard crash for Hill in as many weekends. While her car was destroyed, she was only frustrated and sore.

"It was a hard hit for sure, but I'm glad my head didn't hurt this time," she said. "I was just really sore, especially where my belts were. It was a frustrating end to what had been a good night. I really enjoy racing at Eldora."

Hill is looking forward to racing a doubleheader this Saturday and Sunday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., during the Sprint and Midget Nationals presented by The Drivers Project. It's a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event that has a special connection to her.

"My crew chief, Daryl Turford, and his dad, Pete, are co-promoting the race at Lake Ozark this weekend, so I'm especially looking forward to supporting them and The Drivers Project," she said. "I also enjoy racing at Lake Ozark. Hopefully, it will be a good weekend for all of us."

Burke Doing Double Duty This Weekend With Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Round 8 and Pavement Midget Debut

Inside Line Promotions - ALVIN, Texas (May 25, 2021) - Trey Burke has two unique opportunities ahead of him this weekend.

Burke will invade Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, Ind., for Round 8 of the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship on Thursday and Friday. It will mark the only race of the season for the series on an oval.

Additionally, he will make his pavement midget debut on Friday night at the same track. Burke will drive for Joe Dooling Autosports in both races.

Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship qualifying kicks off the weekend on Thursday before the race is Friday evening.

"I'm super excited for it," Burke said. "I know that a lot of people think we'll have an advantage because I'm a dirt driver, but this is my first pavement oval race. I'm expecting to do a little better than we have been, but honestly, if we can have a solid top 10 I'll be more than pleased."

Burke has made limited laps practicing a pavement midget, but he is optimistic about his first career race with the Champion Midgets during the Carb Night Classic.

"We've practiced, but haven't raced with it," he said. "I've been out with it two days. It's super fun and completely different from the USF2000 car. The line you have to run is different and you have more horsepower so you can run the track differently."

Burke noted that he hopes to compete in approximately a half dozen additional pavement midget races throughout the remainder of the season.

Wilson Runs 15th at Gas City and 16th at Circle City During Busy All Star Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - KOKOMO, Ind. (May 25, 2021) - Greg Wilson highlighted a four-race weekend with the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions on Saturday when he posted a 15th-place result at Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, Ind.

It was the third race of the weekend in Indiana, where Wilson and his Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics were hampered in qualifying.

"Qualifying is the most important part of the night," he said. "We dug ourselves such a big hole early in the night. When you're racing with that level of competition it's hard to dig yourselves out even for a respectable finish."

Wilson timed in 21st quickest on both Thursday and Friday at Circle City Raceway in Indianapolis. He made it directly into the feature on Thursday thanks to a fifth-place finish in a heat race before advancing from 20th to 16th in the main event. Wilson was seventh in a heat race and fourth in the B Main on Friday before he pulled in early in the feature in an effort to save his equipment.

"They did a hell of a job at Circle City," he said. "It's an awesome facility. As hard as they were working if you give that place some time it will be one of the coolest bullrings in the country."

Although Wilson qualified 30th quickest at Gas City I-69 Speedway on Friday, he made up for it in a heat race by charging from seventh to third. Wilson then gained a spot in the feature to finish 15 th.

"I changed the way I had my race car in an effort to be better and to try something for qualifying," he said. "It made it worse. I felt like I was running a good lap, then I pulled a wheelie off the curb on a lap that was going to be halfway okay and you're in trouble. We made progress in the heat, but were mediocre in the feature. I was more frustrated at Gas City than anywhere else because we weren't good enough to pass cars."

The All Star Indiana Invasion presented by the Rayce Rudeen Foundation weekend wrapped up on Sunday at Kokomo Speedway. Wilson was 38th in qualifying and struggled to make headway in the heat race before he hustled from 19th to 10th in the B Main. While it didn't garner a transfer into the main event, it was a step in the right direction.

"I changed a bunch of stuff for the B Main," he said. "We passed a lot of cars. That was a pretty good move in a 12-lap race, but it still doesn't get you where you want to be."

The racing plan for this weekend is up in the air as Wilson plots his next strategic move as well as looks at the weather.

Hagar Aiming for Top Prize at Lake Ozark Speedway's Sprint and Midget Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - MARION, Ark. (May 25, 2021) - Derek Hagar is bound for Missouri this weekend to take part in the inaugural Sprint and Midget Nationals presented by The Drivers Project.

Hagar will participate in the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour portion of the doubleheader on Saturday and Sunday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, where he captured a $5,000-to-win top prize last year. This weekend is capped by a feature that pays twice that amount.

"There's a lot of money on the line," he said. "It'd be a good weekend to shine."

Hagar has been strong at the track in recent years, earning a pair of victories and six podiums in eight starts since 2017.

"We seem to run well when we race there," he said. "I don't see why we can't pick up two wins. It's a good track for us. I know our team is capable of doing it. We have to keep our nose clean to try to pull it off."

Hagar had planned on running with the ASCS National Tour last Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., but the event rained out.

"It's been two weekends where we're supposed to race, but didn't get to race," he said. "I'm antsy to get in the seat and have a good run with the ASCS National Tour drivers."

Henderson and Sandvig Use Big Weekend to Take Points Lead at Knoxville Raceway and Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (May 25, 2021) - Justin Henderson parked the Mike Sandvig Racing No. 7 in the Huset's Speedway Victory Lane on Sunday evening for the second consecutive week to cap a successful weekend of racing.

Henderson also scored finishes of fourth and seventh during a Saturday night event at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, where the second feature was a make-up race.

"If not for that mishap in lapped traffic in the first race of the season, we have led every lap at Huset's except one," he said. "We were confident to start the year, but I even think we've kind of surprised ourselves with how fast we truly are across the board."

Henderson kicked off the weekend at Knoxville Raceway, where he laid down a lap of 14.781 seconds in qualifying to time in third quickest among 20 drivers. He followed that up by advancing four positions in a heat race to finish second.

Henderson lined up on the outside of the second row for the feature and by Lap 2 he was already in a podium position in third. He overtook the second position with four laps remaining and had an opportunity to compete for the lead on two late restarts. However, he was unable to mount a challenge and slipped to fourth on the final lap for his third top-five finish of the season.

"I lost power steering coming to the white flag and I thought I was going to make it until the end, but that caution came out and left me a sitting duck," Henderson said. "I opted to kind of try something different to get us to the end and a couple guys got me. It was unfortunate to end things that way."

In the make-up feature, Henderson lined up from the fifth starting position and he fell back to seventh on the opening circuit. By Lap 11 he worked himself forward to the sixth position and he stayed there for the next eight laps before slipping back to seventh on the final lap for his sixth top 10 of the season.

"We got the power steering fixed and we didn't make a ton of changes to the car between the features," he said. "We just were not very good at all from our setup to my driving. We just kind of missed the boat there and we ended up seventh."

The solid night was good enough to move Henderson into the lead in the Knoxville Raceway championship standings.

Henderson and Sandvig headed to Huset's Speedway on Sunday to finish out the weekend. Henderson set quick time in qualifying with a lap of 10.835 seconds. He then advanced two positions in a heat race to finish second before garnering the third starting spot in the A Main courtesy of the feature redraw.

It only took one lap for Henderson to rocket forward to the top spot as he used the bottom in turns one and two before climbing to the cushion in turns three and four. A caution on Lap 10 wiped away Henderson's advantage and he had to hold off a late-race challenge from second-place Brooke Tatnell over the final five circuits. However, he was able to hold on to cross the finish line first by .754 of a second to score the win for the second consecutive week. That propelled him into the lead in the standings.

"I was kind of preserving there at the end and I wasn't pushing things too much," he said. "I saw Brooke show me his nose and I knew I needed to go. After that I just kept watching the board and making sure I had plenty of room to get the win. I'm so proud of our team and how far we've come to be in this spot."

Henderson and Sandvig will again head to Knoxville Raceway this Saturday and Huset's Speedway on Sunday and Monday for a Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association doubleheader.

"We couldn't ask for a better start to the season with how well he have run," he said. "I'm very confident in our program and If I do my job, I see no reason we can't get both championships here at the end of the year and that's what we're going to keep pushing toward."

QUICK RESULTS -

May 22 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (6); Feature: 4 (4); Make-Up Feature: 7 (5).

Brian Brown Sets New Track Record Before Posting Pair of Wins at Knoxville Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (May 25, 2021) - Brian Brown achieved a new feat on Saturday evening at Knoxville Raceway, where he established a new track record before winning two main events.

Brown's qualifying time of 14.351 seconds bested the 15-year-old record of 14.407 seconds. He followed that up by winning a pair of features to give him three wins this season and 53 career in the 410ci sprint car division at 'The Sprint Car Capital of the World.'

May 22 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 4 (6); Feature: 1 (3); Make-Up Feature: 1 (6).

"You don't go in there saying hopefully we set the track record, but conditions were ideal for it," Brown said. "Our engines are good enough and our cars are fast enough. It felt good to get the track record. For whatever reason I felt like it'd never be broken. It's awesome to have your name by that record. I'm sure it will be broken down the road sometime.

"With the rain they had the track crew and push trucks wanted to race so we're thankful for that. Sometimes it leads to a narrow track. We embraced it knowing the Knoxville Nationals might have a rainy qualifying night and you may have to adapt. I feel like what we learned may help us down the road. I was able to get the lead pretty quick in the first feature and got through traffic really well. We had a green-white-checkered finish and I was able to hold them off to win.

"The second one took us a bit to run Parker (Price-Miller) down. We were able to pass him. We had to run Ayrton (Gennetten) down and was able to pass him for the lead with two laps to go. As that race played out the track was good enough and he was making good laps. Every decision was going to be important to make sure you got close enough to him. When you made your move it had to be precise. One mistake losing momentum during that time and you're probably not going to win. It's a tough thing because you want to move around the track, but if you go down there and slip up you've lost whatever you've worked to get the last four laps to get to him. We got to traffic. He hesitated one time and we pounced. It was definitely a good night for the team with the track record and two wins. The last month I feel we're just gaining momentum. We're on the right path and I'm really looking forward to the rest of the year."

UP NEXT - TBD

"It all depends on the weather this weekend," Brown said. "We'll take a look at the forecast throughout the week and will make a decision on where we feel is the best option to travel to."

Boulton Excited for USCS Series Races at Riverside International Speedway and Lexington 104 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRIGHTON, Tenn. (May 25, 2021) - Tucker Boulton will tackle a pair of USCS Series Sprint Car Speedweek races this weekend.

Boulton plans on racing on Saturday at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., and on Monday at Lexington 104 Speedway in Lexington, Tenn.

"I'm looking forward to this weekend and getting to do a lot of racing," he said. "We might even break out our 305 on Saturday night as well to run two classes."

Boulton, who is in his first full season in the 360ci winged sprint car ranks, has improved his feature result during four starts at Riverside International Speedway. He placed 11th in the opener, 10 th a month later, sixth and then fifth in his most recent race. The fifth-place result tied his best ever in a 360 sprint car.

"I'm very comfortable at Riverside," he said. "The fact that I might get to run two classes means I'll have even more experience so that'd be a lot of fun."

Boulton has made two starts at Lexington 104 Speedway - both in a 305 sprint car. Last year he placed a career-best fourth and he garnered a 10 th-place result in 2018 during a USCS Series race that featured mostly 360 sprint cars.

"We've been there a time or two in the 305," he said. "You don't go around there yanking the steering wheel. It's longer straightaways and longer corners. It takes consistency and speed to be successful.

"It's pretty close to home, too. I have about the same confidence there as I do Riverside."

Kaleb Johnson Scores Season-Best Finish at Rapid Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (May 24, 2021) - Kaleb Johnson earned his season-best result Friday night at Rapid Speedway, where he finished second in the 21-car Midwest Sprint Touring Series main event.

"It wasn't a win, but it still felt pretty good to finish second after the way things have gone so far this year," he said. "I drew good for a change. I started outside pole in our heat race and was able to take the lead coming out of turn two and led the rest of the way."

Johnson's win put him in the redraw for the main event and he drew the fourth starting spot for the 25-lap main race, which ran non-stop.

"We were able to move up to second in the first couple of laps and we stayed with the leader, Jack Dover, for a bit," he said. "But when we were in lapped traffic I drove a bit conservative and he pulled away. Chris Martin pulled alongside me a couple of times when I was taking too long to lap a car, but I was able to get back ahead of him."

The following night also started well at Knoxville Raceway.

"Our night at Knoxville began really well," he said. "We were fastest in hot laps and fifth quickest (of 22 cars) in qualifying. Unfortunately, the rest of the night didn't go nearly as well."

A fueling problem forced Johnson to retire early from his heat race and he lined up 10th in the feature.

"When the race started I went into the first turn behind a couple of cars," he said. "They both went to the bottom so I went to the top. I tried to let the car drift up, but the back end skated out on me and I hit the wall pretty hard. We broke some stuff in the rear end and that ended our night. It was a weird deal, but it was my fault. We were probably lucky that it wasn't a lot worse."

Johnson is looking forward to traveling this weekend to three tracks in three states.

"We're planning to race at Jackson on Friday, at Knoxville on Saturday and at Lake Ozark Speedway on Sunday, if everything goes okay and the weather cooperates," he said. "I've always wanted to race at Lake Ozark, but never have. I saw they're having a two-night special event this weekend so I figured this would probably be about my best opportunity to race there."

QUICK RESULTS -

May 21 - Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa - Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 2 (4).

Williamson Produces Podium During First Sprint Car Start at Double X Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - CALIFORNIA, Mo. (May 24, 2021) - Garet Williamson posted a podium performance on Sunday during his sprint car debut at Double X Speedway.

The Bryant Paver Motorsports driver was efficient throughout the night on the bottom-dominant track, winning a heat race from the pole before earning a third-place finish in the feature.

"We ran away with it in the heat race," he said. "In the feature it was around the bottom. We started on the outside of the front row and got shuffled back. We rode around second and third the whole race.

"It was good to get another top five. It'd have been nice to get a win, but I think that's coming for us because we've had a lot of speed this year."

Williamson nearly recorded a podium to open the weekend with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour on Friday at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill. He won a heat race after starting on the outside of the front row. Williamson pulled the No. 3 during the feature redraw to start the A Main on the inside of the second row.

"I thought we were really good," he said. "If there had been a bottom to run down there or throw some sliders I think we could have been further up front."

Williamson ran inside the top five throughout the race before a late-race incident resulted in an 11th-place result.

"It was super fast," he said. "We were running fourth and I got in too hard behind (Matt) Covington. I got over the curb. When I came down off it the car got upset and spun. It was my mistake. It was hard to get by anybody and I was pushing too hard."

Williamson plans to race this Saturday and Sunday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., during the Sprint and Midget Nationals presented by The Drivers Project with the ASCS Warrior Region. He earned a pair of sprint car wins at the track last year.

"I'm pumped to get there," he said. "We always unload fast there. It will be nice to return to a track where we've had success. We had unfortunate stuff happen when we raced there earlier this year so hopefully we can have a better weekend this time out. Plus, I'm excited to qualify there since they are doing group qualifying."

QUICK RESULTS -

May 21 - Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill. - Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 11 (3).

May 23 - Double X Speedway in California, Mo. - Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 3 (2).

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Record World of Outlaws Win at Attica Raceway Park

Inside Line Promotions - HARTFORD, Ohio (May 24, 2021) - David Gravel guided the Big Game Motorsports No. 2 sprint car to its fourth feature victory of the season last Friday to highlight a three-race week with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

Gravel capitalized on late fortunate to capture the World of Outlaws Kistler Engines Classic at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, where he started the night by setting quick time during qualifying. A heat race win advanced Gravel into the dash. He placed fourth to line up on the outside of the second row in the main event.

Gravel took the lead on Lap 10 and held the point for the ensuing eight laps. Sheldon Haudenschild then grabbed the top spot for a pair of laps before Gravel led Lap 20. Haudenschild reclaimed the lead just after the midpoint of the 40-lap feature.

"I thought we had a pretty good car in the beginning of the race," he said. "We got stale in the middle. Sheldon got away from us and Donny (Schatz) got back by us. We got the wing back and the car came alive. We got Donny back and started closing on Sheldon. He had bad luck."

Gravel, who briefly dropped to third place, regained second before Haudenschild was caught up in a crash. That gave Gravel the lead for the restart with two laps remaining. He maintained first place to garner his 62 nd career World of Outlaws win.

"We were finishing the A Main strong no matter if he crashed or not," he said. "We've still got some catching up to do. Sheldon is really good right now and he had a good car. We just ran our race and it looked like we were going to run second and we caught a break."

It was especially a sweet night given the frustration the team endured last Tuesday at Bridgeport Motorsports Park in Swedesboro, N.J. Gravel qualified 17th quickest, placed sixth in a heat race and advanced from 17 th to 11th in the main event.

"We struggled all night," he said. "Every time we hit the track we were just off. We were fortunate to finish 11th. I passed a couple of guys, but I'd say four of the six cars I passed fell out.

"After Williams Grove and Bridgeport, to have two lackluster nights wasn't a good feeling. We had to go back to the drawing board and back to Square One. We unloaded good at Attica and hit our stride all night long."

The week wrapped up on Saturday at Sharon Speedway, where Gravel timed in second quickest. He won a heat race - his series-best 12th in 26 races this year - before finishing where he started - fifth - in the dash. He gained a position in the feature to place fourth for his 15th top five of the season.

"We drew a good pill," he said. "The track was slowing down in qualifying. We were able to qualify second and get on the front row of the heat race on a super slick track. We got the job done in the heat. We didn't feel great in the dash so we made some changes for the feature. I felt like we had a pretty strong car. I thought we had a third-place car and we ran fourth. The track was so slick and slow. I think we needed one more shot at the race track to get it completely right."

Gravel remains second in the World of Outlaws standings - only 56 points out of the lead - as the series heads to Indiana for races on Friday at Terre Haute Action Track in Terre Haute and next Monday at Lawrenceburg Speedway in Lawrenceburg during the Memorial Day Spectacular.

"I love Lawrenceburg," he said. "It's a fun track that is high banked and fast. Terre Haute is a place I've been okay at. It's a big, fast, dirty place. It creates some challenges of getting hooked up late in the night."

QUICK RESULTS -

May 18 - Bridgeport Motorplex Park in Swedesboro, N.J. - Qualifying: 17; Heat race: 6 (6); Feature: 11 (17).

May 21 - Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 4 (4); Feature: 1 (4).

May 22 - Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 5 (5); Feature: 4 (5).

SUPERS RETURN TO KALAMAZOO MAY 29 AFTER 17-YEAR ABSENCE

May 22, 2021 – The Midwest Supermodified Series (MSS) today revealed early entries for next weekend’s event as part of the inaugural American Speed U.S. Nationals at Kalamazoo Speedway. The May 28-29 event will also feature the Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro and the Maxima Racing Oils Midwest Lights Series.

The MSS Supermodifieds will be on the Saturday May 29 racing card. It will be the first appearance of Supermodifieds at Kalamazoo Speedway since June 11, 2004 when the “Dion Parish Memorial 30” was held. Parish was a local Supermodified driver who lost his life at the track in a practice crash the previous fall. Moe Lilje won that last event nearly 17 years ago.

Despite not having Supermodifieds in recent years, Kalamazoo Speedway was once a hotbed for the division during the 1970’s through mid-1990’s. Kalamazoo Speedway was once an annual stop on the ISMA schedule. Numerous unsanctioned events have been contested at Kalamazoo Speedway over the years as well.

Among early entries for this event include six-time Oswego Classic winner Greg Furlong in the Jeff West owned #1. Other early entries include 2018 ISMA champion Kye Edwards and former MSS champions Trent Stephens and Mike McVetta.

Other drivers expected include Cord Ehrhart, Jonathon Lesiecki, Talon Stephens, JJ Henes, JD Evans, Rich Reid, Bobby Watkins, Jim Paller, AJ Lesiecki, and Larry Lehnert. Additional entries will be revealed once they are finalized leading up to next weekend’s event.

For those unable to make this event it is being offered as a Pay-Per-View live streamed through www.mustseeracing.tv for $19.99 per night or $24.99 for both nights.

Pierce Perfection In Pennsylvania- Scores First Career CRSA Win

Race Report by Steven Ovens – May 21st, 2021 –

(SUSQUEHANNA, PA) – Every once in a while, the stars line up just right for a race team and their driver. With a fantastic crowd on hand pulling for one of “their local drivers” Penn Can Speedway and the Super Gen Products with Champion Power Equipment CRSA Sprints crowned a first-time CRSA winner at a place he knows so well.

Spencer, NY competitor Kyle Pierce and his father/crew chief Cliff have put many laps on Penn Can Speedway in their past. They came up from micro sprints and wingless sprints but tackled the next step up by strapping a full wing atop their 305 Sprint Car and started making strides in the 2020 season.

The Pierce team traveled with the CRSA Sprints in a Covid-19 affected schedule and took part in weekly sanctioned competition at Paul Cole’s Land of Legends Raceway. They ended the season with an incredible podium finish at Land of Legends Raceway in September and have only built on that momentum coming into 2021 with a crop of new marketing partners supporting the effort.

It was as perfect a night as you can have. Pierce was fast in hot laps, won his heat race and drew the front row for the 25-lap feature in front of an electric Penn Can Speedway crowd. Pierce and Dana Wagner, who has really taken a liking to Penn Can these last few trips to PA, did battle for the top spot while veteran Jeff Trombley attempted to let the race come to him.

Defending series champion Darryl Ruggles and last August’s Penn Can winner Josh Flint both had tough nights as they would both end up on the hook on Lap 16 for a red flag. Flint tagged the inside wall, sending his Hannay Reels No. 41J up into Ruggles who had nowhere to go and sending Ruggles on his lid with heavy damage. Ruggles’ night was done, while Flint changed a tire and returned to the field.

On that particular restart- Trombley had finally seized his opportunity by moving from 3rd to take the lead from Pierce. Unfortunately for Trombley, the red flag appeared and sent the field back to the previous restart order.

From laps 16 to 25, Pierce set sail as he left Wagner and Trombley to duke it out for second place. As Pierce exited Turn 4, the Penn Can faithful went bananas as they got to celebrate a guy some call a “hometown guy” as he celebrated his first CRSA victory.

“This is (the culmination) of a lot of hard work and people helping us out last year to get us rolling good. I can’t even put into words how excited I am,” noted Pierce who was trying to take it all in.

“My dad’s been working his tail off on this thing and we finally struck a good balance to get around here today. With both of us teaching and coaching it makes it hard but he helps put the time in and this wouldn’t be possible without him.”

Trombley knew he was that close to getting a win to start 2021.

“The car was good and I got a good run on those guys on that restart and I’m glad we could at least put on a good show for the fans. The track crew did an awesome job tonight- no dust, multiple grooves it was really great.”

The feel good story of the night was Dalton Herrick and his Kiser Sand and Gravel No. 29. Herrick had a throttle linkage come apart twice in 2020, ending potential good runs at “The Can” but that was not to be on this night as he came home third.

“We’re just excited to get the car going good and working on it and building every week. Any time you can finish third with these guys you consider it a win.”

Next on the schedule for the Super Gen Products CRSA 305 Sprints is the first of three trips to Land of Legends Raceway. VanBortel Trucking has kicked in an extra $500 to the purse for positions 3-22.

The CRSA 305 Sprints are powered by Super Gen Products with their Champion Power Equipment located in Newark, NY. Associate sponsors for the 2021 CRSA 305 Sprints include Midstate Basement Authorities, CNY Farm Supply, the Maguire Family of Dealerships, Powdertech Powdercoating, Hoosier Racing Tires, Insinger Performance with their Stinger Race Fuel and is owned and operated by Mike Emhof Motorsports.

(Chino Hills, CA, May 20, 2021) Eddie Tafoya Jr. will have some fresh graphics when he returns to action this Saturday night, May 22nd, in the 70th Salute to Indy at Perris Auto Speedway. Fans attending the prestigious race will get a first look at the flashy new design on the #51T Specialty Fasteners sprint car and the team's race hauler.

 

Saturday’s race will be the second of the year for the 23-year-old Chino Hills, California resident at the track closest to his home. Last month at Perris, Tafoya placed eighth in a tough, veteran field in the 30-lap main event. It was his first full night of sprint car racing on the West Coast in 2021. Coming into this week’s Salute to Indy, the young driver ranks 29th in the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series championship point standings.

Earlier this week, the team practiced on the same Perris half-mile oval that Tafoya will be competing on Saturday. The car is a new DRC chassis that the crew went to Indiana to pick up and race two times last month before its initial showing at Perris. This week’s practice session was to make some final adjustments for Saturday’s race.

Two years ago in his Rookie of the Year title season in both the USAC/CRA and USAC Southwest Series, Tafoya competed in the Salute to Indy for the first time. Not only was it his initial outing in the race, but it was one of his first ever 410 sprint car races. He qualified 18th in the 25-car field. In his heat race he placed 7th and followed that up with an eighth-place finish in the B Main. In the Salute to Indy 30-lap A Main, the rookie ended up 21st. Last year would have been his second time in the race, but the entire sprint car season at Perris was cancelled due to COVID.

After this Saturday’s final checkered flag, Tafoya will have his brand-new shirts for sale in the pit area. Fans can go to the #51T hauler once the gates are opened to purchase a shirt. For those who would like to acquire one, but who cannot make it to the track, they can contact Tafoya on Instagram or Facebook.


For fans who would like to attend Saturday’s race, spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with racing at 7:00. Advance tickets are available at the following link tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7. Due to COVID mandates, that is the only way to purchase tickets for this race. There will be no walk-up ticket sales on Saturday.

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

 

Late Models Coming to Tri-City Raceway Park Sunday
(Franklin, PA May 20, 2021): Tri-City Raceway Park will hold its one and only Late Model race this Sunday, May 24. The stars and cars of the United Late Model Series Northern Region will cap off a three-day speed fest with a 30 lap event paying $3,000 to the winner. Also on the racing card will be the 305 Sprint Cars doing battle in a pair of features, as a race was carried over from the 2020 season. All of this action is being presented courtesy of Donovan and Bauer Auto Group, of Titusville, PA.
The ULMS made its last appearance at Tri-City back in 2018. Things have changed since then, with ULMS now boasting three distinct championships. In addition to the Northern Region, there is a Southern Region and, then, there is the National Tour.
One thing that has not changed is that Max Blair will be a prime contender for the win. Blair, who cut his teeth racing at Tri-City, is the National points leader and he has a pair of wins to his credit. He also sits atop the Southern Regional standings. Blair is the leading winner in ULMS history and he will be looking to get his new ride, the potent Viper car, into victory lane at his home track.
Currently atop the North region points is Michael Norris, with a single victory. Norris is a familiar name to Late Model fans in the Western PA area, as he is a former track champion at Lernerville Speedway.
But there will be other familiar names in the field as well. Expected to compete are Jared Miley, Alex Ferree, and Gregg Satterlee, all former champions in the area. Also expected will be some promising Rookie of the Year contenders, Ryan Scott, Deshawn Gingerich, and Cody Egner. Maybe one of them will upset the veteran racers!
The racing action will start at 6 p.m. Spectators will be admitted to the grounds at 4 p.m. and the pit gates will open at 2 p.m. for the competitors.
The ticket pricing will be $20 for adults (ages 16 and up) and $12 for students (ages 11 to 15). The children (ages 10 and under) will be admitted for free. Pit Passes will be $35.
There is plenty of free parking at Tri-City Raceway Park.
If you cannot make it to the track this weekend, Sunday Thunder will return on May 30, featuring the 410 Sprint Cars under the Shawgo Real Estate LLC banner, the 358 Modifieds racing for Krill Recycling LLC, the Pro Stocks presented by Hovis Auto & Truck Supply, and the Mini Stocks contending for the 4 Your Car Connection crown. Also coming soon will be the finale for the Western PA Sprint Speedweek, on June 6. You will not want to miss that one!

CAREER 1ST WIN FOR DAN LEPRO IN PACE RUSH LATE MODELS AT PITTSBURGH; BRIAN KNOWLES HOT IN NY RUSH LM; KEVIN RUHLMAN MAKES A 2021 WINNING DEBUT IN RUSH SPRINTS AT TYLER COUNTY; KRUMMERT STOPS WOLBERT IN RUSH SPORTSMAN MODS

By Marcie Barlow

(May 20, 2021) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Pulaski, PA)...After several weeks of dismal weather, the drivers and fans of the Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC were welcomed by sunshine, warmer temperatures and lots of exciting RUSH racing action at tracks throughout the entire region.

Dog Hollow Speedway was able to get their first show of the year in Friday evening after losing the first two scheduled events to inclement weather. Ryan Frazee led the first two laps of the Pace Performance RUSH Late Model main event before veteran Joe Martin took command. Martin led the final 18 laps to score the win over Michael Duritsky, Jr., Kyle Smith, Jr., Joe Moyer and Noah Brunell. This Friday the RUSH Late Models will compete in a special event with additional laps and an increased purse. Some $3,200 has been spread throughout the purse with $200 to-start!

Raceway 7 also opened their gates for the first time this past Friday evening. Josh Ferry led the first five circuits of the RUSH Late Model feature before the caution flag waved for an incident involving Cory Sines and Khole Wanzer. When racing action resumed Ferry continued to lead while Matt Latta, Billy Henry, Wanzer and Breyton Santee battled for positions two through five. Ferry weathered several more cautions and picked up his first victory of 2021 and second of his career at the Conneaut, Ohio oval. Latta, Henry, Santee and Joe Long were second through fifth. Racing action at the Conneaut OH oval resumes this Friday with both the RUSH Late Models on the card.

Friday night action at the Potomac Speedway saw Jeremy Pilkerton score his third victory of the season. It was a very emotional win for Pilkerton as his father suffered a heart attack just a week earlier at the speedway and is still hospitalized. Ed Pope, Jr., Megan Mann, Mike Raleigh and Bo Waller in his debut claimed spots two through five. Potomac Speedway is closed this Friday, May 21st. The RUSH Late Models next appearance at the southern Maryland short track will be on June 4.

Racing action at the Georgetown Speedway saw “The Thrill” Matt Hill rim ride his way to victory lane with a great move in turns three and four to overtake Austin Hubbard and claim a very popular $1,000 victory. It was the local racer's first win of 2021. Defending divisional champion Trevor Collins claimed the third spot with Joey Warren and Donald Lingo, Jr. completing the top five. The Pace Performance RUSH Late Models will return to Georgetown Speedway on July 23rd.

Second generation racer Dan Lepro picked up his career first RUSH Late Model victory in action at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. Lepro, who also was victorious in heat race action, drew the number one pill, which placed him on the pole for the 20-lap feature event. Noah Brunell led the first six circuits before Lepro took command. A late race caution gave Ben Policz, Zach Morrow and Darryl Charlier one last shot at the top spot, but Lepro kept his cool and led the final three laps to garner the win. Policz, Morrow, Charlier and Bill Kessler completed the top five. This Saturday night the RUSH Late Models will return as part of the weekly racing action at PPMS.

New York’s Fulton Speedway completed their second night of racing action with first time visitor Brian Knowles picking up his second overall win of 2021 in Pace Weekly Series action. The 20-lap main event saw Sean Beardsley grab the lead at the start of the main event. Beardsley cruised along in first place while Knowles, Chad Homan, Kevan Cook and Chris Fleming battled for spots two through five. Knowles overtook Beardsley for the top spot on lap 11. By lap 15 Chad Homan had overtaken Beardsley for second and was pressuring Knowles for the lead. At the checkered flag it was Knowles, who captured his first career Fulton win, over Homan, Beardsley, Cook and Fleming. This Saturday night the Fulton Speedway will once again host a four-division program.

Genesee Speedway got their second show of the new season in the books this past weekend. Bill Holmes withstood the late race challenges of defending divisional champion Jimmy Johnson to score his first RUSH Late Model feature win since 2019. Holmes’ daring move on lap 19 in which he split a pair of lapped cars, secured the top spot over Johnson. Steve Dixon, Kurt Stebbins and Paul Grigsby rounded out the top five. The RUSH Late Models will compete in two features this Saturday at the Batavia, NY track as the makeup event from May 1 will be on the card in the final tune-up before the May 29 Flynn's Tire/Born2Run Lubricants Touring Series event.

Delaware International Speedway hosted another weekly event for the Pace Performance RUSH Late Models Saturday night. Matt Hill and Derek Magee battled for the top spot at the start of the main event. Mechanical woes sidelined Magee as Hill appeared headed to victory lane; however, Sparky White has other plans. White methodically ate away at Hill’s lead and grabbed the lead from him as the white flag was waving. At the checkered it was White capturing his first win of 2021 over Hill, Joe Warren, Mike Wharton and David Dill, Jr. Delaware International Speedway’s oval track will be silent this week as the Dragway will be hosting an event.

The New Stateline Speedway and Eriez Speedway hosted the Flynn’s Tire/Born2Run Lubricants RUSH Touring Series this past weekend. Jeremy Wonderling scored a dominating win at Stateline Saturday night in the "Bill Law Memorial" for his first Tour win in nearly two years, while Kyle Hardy collected the win at Eriez in his first appearance. Hardy has now won four of the first five Tour events and leads both the Tour and Weekly Series standings. The Flynn’s Tire/Born2Run Lubricants RUSH Late Model Touring Series is off this weekend.

The RUSH Late Models had the week off at Greg Gunter’s Winchester Speedway and the Woodhull Raceway. RUSH Late Model action at both facilities will resume this Saturday.

Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series fans will be able to get an additional night of racing action in this week as the McKean County Raceway in Smethport, Pa. will open their 2021 season on Thursday night (May 20). The RUSH Late Models and RUSH Pro Mods will compete as part of the six-division card.

The Hill Speedway in Monroeton, Pa. will begin their inaugural season under the Pace Performance RUSH sanction this Friday ( May 21). Meanwhile, Bradford Speedway will kick off their season on Sunday (May 23) with both the Pace RUSH Late Models and Pro Mods slated for action.

The Pace Performance RUSH Stock Car Division will be in action weekly at the Dog Hollow Speedway on Fridays as well as at the Stateline Speedway on Saturday nights and the Eriez Speedway on Sunday evenings. The division made its debut at Dog Hollow this past weekend with Jeremy Zufall scoring the win over Tanner Ramsey and Bob Torquato.

The RUSH Sprint Car Series ventured to the Tyler County Speedway in Middlebourne, WV on Saturday for the second and final time of the season. New Yorker Kevin Ruhlman mastered the high banks of the “Bullring” to score his career first Series victory. Gale Ruth Jr., who won on opening night, Nolan Groves, Andy Feil, and Chad Ruhlman rounded out the top five. The next event for the Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Championship will take place this Saturday at the Sharon Speedway for $800 to-win as the RUSH Sprint Cars will join the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Sprint Cars for a night of open wheel racing action.

Pace Performance RUSH Sportsman Modified action this past weekend found Chas Wolbert and Garrett Krummert continuing their winning ways part of the Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series. Friday night at Raceway 7 Wolbert picked up his third win of the 2021 season in Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly Series competition over Kole Holden, Rob Kristyak, Preston Cope and Brandon Ritchey. Krummert was able to stop Wolbert’s winning streak on Saturday at Sharon as he picked up his first divisional win of the young season. Krummert, who started seventh, took control on lap five and cruised to a nine second victory over Wolbert. Kristyak, Jacob Wolfe and Justin Shea completed the top five.

Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway will host the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds this Saturday for the first of nine appearances at the "Monster Half-Mile".

The Pace Performance RUSH Pro Mods were only able to race once at Stateline in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions; however, have already completed two events in the early 2021 season. Dennis Lunger, Jr. is now two-for-two beating a record 27-car field on May 1 and topped a 22-car field last Saturday night. Prior to this year, the all-time high car count for the division was 16 back in 2019! Al Brewer and Adam Ashcroft have traded second and third place both weeks. Scott Gurdak made his season debut on Saturday and was fourth as veteran Greg Johnson completed the top five.

DYER FINISHES 3RD IN BAKERSFIELD LIGHTNING SPRINT RACE – THIS SATURDAY USAC/CRA SALUTE TO INDY

(May 20, 2021, Yucca Valley, CA) Last Saturday night Jeff Dyer kicked off a busy four week stretch of his 2021 racing campaign when he placed third in the California Lightning Sprint Car Series main event at the Bakersfield Speedway. The finish was his best result of the year in the four CLS races held thus far.

Dyer, who resides 120-miles east of Los Angeles in Yucca Valley, California, was a picture of consistency at Bakersfield. Of the 17 cars on hand at “The West’s Fastest 1/3 Mile High Banked Clay Oval,” he turned in the fourth fastest lap in qualifying with a time of 14.164. He then started third in his eight-lap heat race and took the checkered flag in second.

For the 30-lap main event, Dyer started on the inside of the second row in the third spot. On a track that was slick enough to host a National Hockey League game, passing was at a premium. After slipping back to fourth on the original start, the veteran driver used the outside to reclaim the spot after an early race red flag. He stayed in that position for the duration. The former United States Army Demolitions Expert did make a charge on the second-place driver when the latter got caught behind lapped traffic in the waning laps. However, the traffic finally cleared and let the second-place car escape Dyer’s challenges.

Powered by his last two main event finishes, Dyer has climbed another spot and is now ranked fifth in the CLS championship standings.

This Saturday night, May 22nd, Dyer will switch gears big time when he jumps into the #39 USAC/CRA Sprint Car for the 70th Salute to Indy on the Perris Auto Speedway half-mile clay oval. The race will be his first back in a full-size sprint car since March 12th in the USAC/CRA Series at the Kern County Raceway. That night, driving his own #4 360 cubic inch car against the 410s at Kern County, Dyer qualified 24th in the 30-car field. He then led most of the way before finishing fourth in his heat race. He started and finished 14th in the 30-lap main event with a damaged engine.

Once Saturday’s Salute to Indy ends, Dyer and his crew will focus on the POWRi Lightning Sprint Car Nationals on May 29th and 30th at the Central Missouri Speedway. After the finale in the “Show Me State,” Dyer will head back to the west coast to race with the California Lightning Sprint Cars at the Grand Reopening of the Ventura Raceway on June 5th.

For fans who would like to attend this Saturday’s race at Perris Auto Speedway, spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with racing at 7:00. Advance tickets are available at the following link tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7. Due to COVID mandates, that is the only way to purchase tickets for this race. There will be no walk-up ticket sales.

Throughout the 2021 campaign, Dyer will be racing in memory of his grandfather, Glenn Sels.

Dyer Motorsports would like to thank the following sponsors for making the 2021 racing season possible. John Springstead Racing, T Shirts By Timeless, LDS Investigations, Hair Cuts by Susie and Amsoil. If you would like to be a part of the team in 2021, call or send an E-mail to the contact information at the top of this page.
