Race Results From Coast to Coast

Shawn Jones Scores Third Consecutive Hunt Series Win as He Tops Moose Lacy Memorial

(PETERSEN MEDIA-Merced, CA)- What started out as a subtle gesture to former series official Moose Lacey who passed away back on March 9th, quickly turned into a memorial race in his honor on what was his Birthday weekend, and with a ton of bonus money up for grabs, it was Shawn Jones picking up his third consecutive win with the Hunt Series as he claimed the Moose Lacy Memorial.

Paying homage to Lacy, a few great people got together to pay $700 to the seventh-place finishes during Saturday’s feature as an ode to his favorite Football player, John Elway. Once that announcement came down the pipeline, more people and companies came forward, including Doug Lockwood of Merced Speedway, and the race ended up paying $2000 to win and $250 to start.

With 23 cars making the trip to Merced Speedway, Jones continued his dominant 2021 campaign as he kickstarted his night by earning Ashley Van Den Berg Home Loans Fast Time honors.

Jones would ultimately find himself on the pole for the 25-lap feature event and that would prove to be all he needed on this night. Able to leave the field in his wake on a very slick racing surface, Jones would feel pressure from Bradley Terrell at times.

As the slick surface would start to take rubber, Jones would continue to look extremely strong out front with Terrell, and Daniel Whitley in his wake.

When the checkered flag was displayed to the field, it was Jones picking up his fourth overall win of the season, and third consecutive, with Terrell crossing the stripe in second, and Whitley in third.

During post-race tech, Bradley Terrell’s mount failed the inspection giving Whitley second, Shawn Arriaga third, Nathan Schank fourth, and Cody Fendley fifth.

Preliminary action on Saturday night saw Arriaga pick up Benic Enterprises Heat Race No. 1, Whitley won Brown and Miller Heat Race No. 2, and Jacob Tuttle took top honors in King Racing Products Heat Race No. 3.

By way of his charge from 15th to seventh, Jarrett Soares was the Santomauro Racing Products Hard Charger, while Jake Morgan was the TDS hard Luck Award recipient.

Finishing 15th in the feature was Jacob Williams who took home the BR Motorsports P15 award.

Seavey Wins USAC Indiana Sprint Week Feature;

Naida Tops Non-Wing 600cc Micro-Sprints

At Gas City I-69 Speedway Monday Night

GAS CITY, Ind., July 27 – After rain postponed Friday night’s show following sprint car time trials, Logan Seavey of Sutter, Calif. won an ultra-competitive 30-lap USAC NOS Energy Drink Indiana Sprint Week feature for the USAC AMSOIL national non-wing sprint cars at Gas City I-69 Speedway Monday night.

Fourteen-year-old Darin Naida of Adrian, Mich. served notice on the national stage that he’s one to watch when he took the lead on the white-flag lap to win the companion 15-lap non-wing 600cc micro-sprint feature before a packed house.

Sprint Cars

Jake Swanson of Anaheim, Calif. started second and led the first lap of the sprint car feature before Seavey, who started fourth, took the lead from him in Turn 2 and led the next 29 laps. But it wasn’t nearly as cut and dry as that sounds, as positions changed throughout the field behind Seavey the entire race, and several competitors came on strong at the end.

Seavey had a 4.438-second lead over Swanson on lap 10. Brady Bacon, of Winchester, Ind., by way of Broken Arrow, Okla., had just passed Swanson for second after starting eighth when the race’s only caution flag flew with 11 laps down. It was necessary after Chase Jones of Greenwood, Ind. got caught in a tractor tire rimming the track low between Turns 3 and 4 while running ninth.

On the restart on lap 12 Seavey and Bacon scooted away while Swanson, Tye Mihocko of Phoenix, Ariz., and Jason McDougal of Broken Arrow, Okla., crossed the start-finish line under a blanket battling for third.

Three laps later at the halfway point Seavey had a 1.659-second lead over Bacon, who was trying everything he could think of to close the gap. Swanson was still third, but on that lap Tanner Thorson of Minden, Nev. passed both Kyle Cummins of Princeton, Ind. and Mihocko to rise from sixth to fourth.

Cummins passed Mihocko for fifth on lap 16 and Thorson for fourth on lap 18. Meanwhile, up ahead Seavey still led over Bacon and Swanson, but he was finding the going tougher due to lapped traffic.

Bacon got as close as 0.381 of a second to Seavey on lap 24 due to the lapped traffic, but no matter what he tried he couldn’t find a way by. Seavey made no mistakes and took the checkered flag with a 0.788-second margin of victory over Bacon. Cummins, who had started 12th, passed Swanson on the last lap to grab the final podium position and the hard-charger honors. Swanson finished fourth. McDougal passed Thorson on the last lap to round out the top five.

Seavey’s winning car was the Baldwin-Fox Racing/Fox Paving-Claxton Engines No. 5, which is a DRC chassis with a Claxton Chevy. Bacon was in the Dynamics, Inc./Fatheadz Eyewear/Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts/Telstar No. 69, which is a Triple X chassis with a Rider Chevy. Cummins drove the Rock Steady Racing/Mid-America Safety Solutions/Project Oversight No. 3R, which is Mach-1 chassis with a Cummins Chevy.

Micro-Sprints

Naida dipped under Kole Kirkman of Kokomo, Ind. in Turn 3 on the white-flag lap and went on to win another very competitive race, the 15-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature, after starting fourth in the Slusarski Excavating and Paving No. 7N.

Polesitter Easton Ashbrooke of Marion, Ind. led the first two laps. Kirkman got around him to the outside on the frontstretch right before Levi Winget of Wabash, Ind. brought out a red flag when he flipped between three and four. Luckily he wasn’t hurt.

Mike Landis of Logansport, Ind., who had started fifth, dove under Kirkman on the backstretch and Ashbrooke on the frontstretch to lead lap three before Kirkman took command on lap four. Kirkman led through lap seven with Landis either beside him or right behind him, and on lap eight Landis’s hard work paid off when he retook the lead.

Kirkman was having none of it, however, and he retook the lead by diving under Landis in Turn 4 two laps later. Landis got him back in Turn 2 but Kirkman was able to maintain his lead at the start-finish line through lap 12. At that point Landis biked and came down on all four wheels in Turn 2 to bring out a yellow, and had to go to the rear for the restart.

While all this had been going on Naida had been watching from third place, which he had taken from Ashbrooke on lap five. He was ready on the restart with 13 laps complete, and dove under Kirkman in Turn 3 to take command and go to win by 0.427 of a second over Kirkman’s Factor1 No. 51.

Jakeb Boxwell of Zanesville, Ohio took the final podium position followed by Ashbrooke. Adam Walker of Indianapolis celebrated his 22nd birthday by finishing fifth.

Red Flags

In addition to Winget’s flip in the micro-sprint feature, three sprint car drivers got upside down during the evening.

Chase Johnson of Penngrove, Calif. flipped between Turns 3 and 4 at the start of the first sprint heat.

Paul Nienhiser of Chapin, Ill. flipped in the same spot with two laps down in the semi feature while running third.

Anthony D’Alessio of Gas City by way of Apollo Beach, Fla., flipped between Turns 1 and 2 with one lap left in the semi while running ninth.

All crawled out of their damaged cars under their own power.

What’s Next?

Rookie Bealer Tops Bloomsburg

Rookie Zack Bealer from Lehighton found a way around Bloomsburg Fairgrounds Raceway that nobody else could match and scored his first win in a full-sized sprint car in Sunday’s IMCA/RaceSaver sprint feature co-sanctioned by the PA Sprint Series and the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series.

The former micro-sprint driver, running regularly with MASS, already had amassed two top-five finishes and four top-tens in just six starts, including a seventh at Bridgeport Speedway in his first RaceSaver start, the season-opening co-sanctioned event for both groups.

He announced early Sunday that he might be ready to do even better at Bloomsburg, coming from ninth starting position to finish fourth in his heat. That was the best charge by any driver in the preliminaries.

Then he drew the pole for the 25-lap feature, the first ever for full-size, winged sprints on the Bloomsburg track, built earlier this year inside the horse track that was the site of many classic open-wheel races beginning nearly a century ago and ending in the 1980s.

In a race with only one caution flag, Bealer and his Horizon Landscaping/TSL Shocks/Newlin Bar Service/Project Believe in Goodness #44 handled both open track and heavy traffic nearly flawlessly, although Bloomingburg New Yorker Justin Mills gave it his all in the race’s only restart, with four laps to go.

Mills came home second, with rookie Tyler Snook of Beavertown third, Will Brunson of Middleburg fourth and North Carolinian George Loux fifth. Loux was racing “back home” in Pennsylvania while the NASCAR traveling circuits have two weeks off; he works in that racing world.

Rounding out the top 10 were Eddie Wagner, Tim Iulg, Aiden Borden, Kenny Heffner and Jared Zionkowski.

On a night when passing was at a premium, Mike Melair of Warrington earned the Hartman Motor Company Hard Charger Award, advancing eight spots from the back row and his 23rd place starting position.

Heat race winners for the 29-car field were Wagner, Loux and Matthew Swift (a graduate of neighboring Bloomsburg University), with Larry McVay taking the B-Main. There were no serious incidents in any of the night’s races.

During the first heat race, a shower hit the track, but all the cars were able to maintain control. Racing was stopped, but the rain proved relatively brief, and the track was worked back into racing trim with commendable speed.

The RaceSaver sprints will return to Bloomsburg October 2 – during the fair – for a daytime show with the ARDC midgets. After that program, they will travel to Clinton County Speedway for that track’s biggest RaceSaver sprint program of the season that same night.

Next weekend, PASS takes a rare weekend off. Racing will resume on Saturday, August 7, at Port Royal Speedway.

Double X Speedway
California, MO
July 25, 2021
by: Dean Reichel

 

Sunday night saw the second "Racing Back to School" night at Double X Speedway. This event, begun by Tyler Utz and family and friends in 2019 is becoming a great event to help get kids ready for back to school. Over 180 backpacks full of school supplies were donated to be given away to school age fans that were in attendance. Many thanks to the Utz family, Tyler Blank racing, Tara Hudson, Carol Wirts and all that donated for the giveaway. Your support and initiative is very much appreciated.

The 305 Winged Sprint Cars were on hand for a second appearance at Double X in 2021. The track was in great shape in spite of some rainfall on Sunday. The feature event in the guest division saw Jack Potter and Kenny Potter line up on the front row for the feature event. Jack Potter would take the point and be a model of consistency in leading green to checkered surviving several restarts along the way. At the checkered it was Jack Potter followed by Kenny Potter, Austin Crane finished a solid third after an early caution. Kaitlyn Boland crossed the stripe in fourth, Chris Couch was fifth and Camdin Couch completed the field. Jack Potter claimed the lone heat race. .

With some weekly drivers and cars following a race series this week the 360 Winged Sprint Cars still put on a competitive show with Tyler Blank once again reigning supreme in the feature event. At the drop of the green Corey Nelson took command and had opened up a five car length advantage over the field. A caution flag on lap 4 proved the undoing though as Blank found a ton of traction on the top groove off of turn two and would take the lead. Nelson would pressure Blank for the next handful of laps before Blank began to open up the winning advantage. During this same time Broc Elliott moved to the top shelf and after restarting fifth was challenging Nelson for the number two spot. As the laps clicked by Nelson was able to open up a slight advantage over Elliott. Following Blank across the finish line were Nelson in second, Broc Elliott in third, Jack Wagner in fourth and Kory Bales completing the top five. Heat races were won by Nelson and Samuel Wagner.

The Super Stock division saw Joe Miller claiming the victory in the feature event, his second in a row. Early leaders John Clancy had mechanical issues on lap two and stopped in turn three to bring out the caution. Dale Berry inherited the lead but he too would have a mechanical issue and retire on the same caution. Following the victor under the checkered fag was Eddie Keeran in second, Steve Beach in third, Jody Romig in fourth and Russell Beach in fifth.

Heat races were claimed by Clancy and Berry .

The 2021 season finale is next Sunday August 1. The rescheduled "Race for Riley" Riley Hudson Memorial Race will be held with the Pure Stock division being the guest class for the evening, joining the 360 Winged Sprint Cars and the Super Stocks for the final event of the season.

Pirtek Renegades
 

Twenty-one Pirtek Renegades checked in on Saturday night at Cedar Lake Speedway with $1,000 of extra purse money on the line thanks to the GT Transport Hot Shot Challenge. Cam Schafer racked up the most passing points in winning heat one from the third row, while rookie Zach Nelson and “the Machine”, Ryan Johnson each scored their first career UMSS victories winning the second and third heat races respectively. The top four in passing points qualified for the GT Transport Hot Shot Challenge of electing to start in the back row for the extra $1K - and both Schafer and the #69s of Jon Lewerer accepted.

Britt, Minnesota’s Nick DaRonco and Scott Brandt paced the Reaction Time Sports podcast lineup to green with DaRonco taking control early. Mike Mueller was again strong down low while Brandt and Jake Kouba battled early on, but all eyes were on the sprinters of Lewerer and Schafer. Lewerer was into the top 12 with just a few laps scored and Schafer was right behind him as the duo sliced their way forward. A hard crash on lap eight involving Nelson and Johnny Parsons brought out the red flag. Parsons was eventually alert and communicative, but he did initially require medical attention after a tremendously hard roll in his #12 mount. During the stop in action, Lewerer was also forced to retire due to a power plant issue.

Back under green, it was still DaRonco showing the way in front of Mueller, Kouba and Brandt, but Schafer had already cracked the top ten, restarting eighth. With just two more laps in, Schafer was up to fifth and before the crossed flags flew on lap 15, he had caught and passed DaRonco for the lead. Once in front, Schafer stayed aggressive on the top side and stretched his lead, deftly working through lapped traffic. At the double checkers, Schafer’s #54 hotrod was parked in Rock Auto victory lane for an astounding tenth time this season, a series record. The win also cemented Schafer alone at the top the all-time Upper Midwest Sprintcar Series win list with 37 feature wins, surpassing Brooke Tatnell’s 36 career stickers. DaRonco finished a strong second in front of Kouba and Mueller, while Zach Widdes turned in a career best fifth place finish.

In other Renegade action, “The Joker” Chris Lewis snared checkers at Grand Rapids Speedway on Thursday night for the Northern Renegades, while Paul Schultz picked up a win Friday in Superior and another in Ashland on Saturday. Out west, Joel Larson notched his second win of the summer at Devils Lake. The Pirtek Renegades return to action on Saturday, July 31, as the winged warriors travel into Northern territory to lock horns at the Hibbing Raceway.

 

 

Chris Donnelly’s First Ever ESS Win Comes at ESS’ First Ever Appearance at Bear Ridge.

25 Lap A-Main Completed in Six Minutes and 29 seconds.

BRADFORD, VT – It was a history making Saturday night at the Bear Ridge Speedway located in the beautiful Green Mountain State of Vermont. Local favorite Chris Donnelly thrilled the hometown fans by winning his first career Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) A-Main in ESS’ first visit to the quarter-mile.

The NAPA Auto Parts 25 lap, green to checker, finale’ was completed in six minutes and 29 seconds which made for the quickest A-Main of that distance in the club’s 37-year history.

Donnelly drew the pole for the A-Main but it was current ESS point leader Jason Barney that took the top spot at the start. With Barney taking to the top side right away, it did have the eventual winner worried. “This track is always know to be fast on the low side and that’s how I had my car set up,” he said afterwards, “But, when I saw Jason take off on the top it worried me, worried me a lot! These guys are just so good, and they worked the track all night to make for a good high side.”

It didn’t take long before the leaders closed in on slower traffic and that enabled Donnelly to close in on Barney. “This place is a lot of fun when it’s racy and then you get to slower cars. I really have to think where and how you want to get by,” he went on, “Jason was staying on top and I was good on the bottom. It just happened to open up for me to get by.”

Donnelly is a champion with the Sprint Cars of New England and has many years running a modified at Bear Ridge, experience was a plus on this night. “Oh, I’m sure it helped quite a bit. I have a thousand laps here where many of the these guys had none,” Donnelly continued to analyze, ‘You can’t sell the ESS teams short. They travel all over and can adapt to quickly. This win just means so much, yea it was at a track I know, but, when you can win with ESS it really makes you proud. I’m honored to have a win with such a great organization”

Matt Tanner was one of the few ESS teams that has laps at the Bradford oval. It was a decade ago but it was still laps. “The track changed some but I’m sure having some laps here helped,” said the driver from Stephentown, NY, “The car was good and I was closing in on Jason in the late stages. It was running as hard as I could to see if we could catch him and get by. We did and second is a good finish.”

For Barney, while it was another podium finish and he opened up his point lead over Paulie Colagiovanni, taking the lead at the start and coming home in third wasn’t in the plans. “The guys gave me a awesome race car like they always do, this one was on me, I just didn’t read the race track right,” he dead-panned, “Usually you’re pretty happy with third but I just feel I gave this one away some. But tomorrow is another day and there’s always another race. I’m so fortunate to be where I am today and we will move on to the next.”

Colagiovanni followed up his win from the night before to finish in fourth with Danny Varin fifth. The next five was Davie Franek, Shawn Donath, Clay Dow, Caleb Lamson and Will Hull.

The $75 to win heats were taken by Colagiovanni, Franek and Varin. The Dash was won by Scott Holcomb.

Bard Bounces Back With Path Win

Garrett Bard put disappointment behind him and scored a convincing victory Saturday night in the PA Sprint Series 25-lap feature event at Path Valley Speedway.

The Wells Tannery driver in his family-supported CG Racing Engines/Barnett Self Storage/Environmental Earth Tech #95 had endured a rare failure-to-qualify Friday night at Big Diamond Speedway, but racing life was clearly back in balance 24 hours later. After a sixth-place start in his heat, Bard finished second, the drew the pole position for the feature and led all the way, taking the win by 1.391 seconds over Austin Reed.

The win was Bard’s fifth of 2021 and 20th in a PASS career that now spans just over two years. It was his third career win at Path Valley.

In victory lane, Bard said he welcomed the race’s two late cautions, because the handle on his car was going away, and the restarts took him out of heavy traffic.

Reed, who had started eighth, hung with Bard on the final restarts but couldn’t get around. The Etters driver’s ESS/Save Rite Auto Sales & Service/Signarama of York #34 turned in an impressive run to the front but fell just short of his first win of the season.

Scott Frack of Gilbertsville, who won his heat and started fourth in the feature, ran in the top five all race and finished third, one of several competitors scoring PASS career-best finishes. Rookie Zach Rhodes of McVeytown was another of that group with his fourth.

Ken Duke Jr. of Selinsgrove, recovering from a nasty green-flag accident Friday at Big Diamond, charged from 14th starting position to finish fifth.

Completing the top ten were Stevie Kenawell (whose father was a three-time winner at Path Valley), Donnie Hendershott, Alyssa Rowe (in only her third PASS start), Kenny Heffner and defending Path Valley RaceSaver points champion John Walp.

Hendershot claimed the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic Hard Charger award, moving from 20th starting position to his seventh-place finish.

The race was slowed by four cautions, one of which sidelined top five-running Andrew Boyer, who spun and hit the front stretch wall. He was awarded the Austin Gelwicks Hard Luck Award, a cash award donated by the family of the driver whose memorial race is run annually at Path Valley.

Reed collected the VP Racing Fuels Award as the top finisher using VP products and displaying the company’s decal.

Heat races for the 22-car field were won by Boyer, Frack and Kennawell.

After a rare off weekend this week, the PASS sprinters return to action Saturday, August 7, at Port Royal Speedway.

Paulie Colagiovanni Sweeps Lucas Oil ESS Night at Albany-Saratoga.

MALTA, NY – Defending Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) champion Paulie Colagiovanni had a night of night’s Friday night at the Albany-Saratoga Speedway. He completed the complete sweep of timing the fastest in his group, winning his heat and then capturing the 25 lap the NAPA Auto Parts A-Main collecting $2,110 for an evening’s worth of work.

The victory was his second of the season which closed the gap some on current ESS point leader Jason Barney. “We had a good car and the track was real racy, you could put the car anywhere on the track which was a big help,” Colagiovanni noted. With the only yellow flag in the on the first original start, lapped traffic planned into the event.

“There were cars all over racing, but when you have a good car and a good track you can get around them,” he noted, “We were lucky not to get into any of them and to pick up another win this year. Hopefully we will get a few more.”

Pole sitter Shawn Donath lead the first five laps before Colagiovanni slipped by. From there it didn’t take long before the 20 year old pilot entered the slower traffic and started to make his moves. Chuck Hebing maneuvered his way into second and was hoping to pick up the chase.

“I knew once I got by Shawn I was in second, I found a lane that worked in turn one that helped but I just needed a yellow to get to the lead,” said the former two-time champion, “It’s a good run for the team, they work hard, we went back to some basics and are getting some good runs.”

Also showing some improved speed of late is Jeff Cook and he came home third right behind his good friend in Hebing. “it was a good run for all of us, myself and the team,” Cook summed up, “It was a good car right off the trailer and the track was a real good tonight. It was a fun race tonight and we were lucky to have a good finish.”

Donath came home in fourth followed by Jason Barney who passed 14 cars collecting hard charger bonus money. Rounding out the top ten were Josh Pieniazek, Scott Holcomb, Matt Tanner, Danny Varin and Dylan Swiernik.

Heats were won by Cook, Tanner and Colagiovanni. The dash was won by Cory Sparks with Barney the B-main winner.

Curtis J. Bish Wins Ray’s Race;
Felmlee, Jeremiah Shingledecker, and Speer Also Win

(Franklin, PA July 25, 2021): The Pro Stocks took center stage at Tri-City Raceway Park, as the Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship invaded the speedway for the annual running of Ray’s Race, which honored the late Ray Virgile. Ray was a huge supporter of the Pro Stock division, especially at his home track. The best regional talent joined with the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply contingent for a banner 41 car field. Taking the $3,500 win was Curtis J. Bish.
Joining him in victory celebrations were 59 year old Bob Felmlee in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars, Jeremiah Shingledecker in the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds, and Dalton Speer in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks.
“I was sorry to see Randy Wyant break or blow up, or whatever happened to him,” Bish said. At the time misfortune struck, Wyant was flying toward the checked flag on what should have been the last lap. That led to a pair of green-white-checkered runs to the finish and, on the second one, Bish was able to muscle his way past Chris Schneider who had inherited the lead from Wyant.
“That last lap pass, I was going to go to the top, but he missed the middle, and I turned under him,” Bish said. “I just tried to stay on the bottom after that.”
The Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship race had Chris Schneider and Andrew Gordon on the front row. Doug Iorio, II and Randy Wyant were in row two. Alan Dellinger and Jamie Duncan lined up in the third row, with Tim Bish and Curtis J. Bish in the fourth. Joe Stajnrajh and Curt Bish, Jr. were set for for five, but Stajnrajh opted to start at the rear. William Hurrelbrink and Chris McGuire were set for row six.
Although Schneider led the field into turn one, it was Gordon who rode the rim to take the lead on the opening lap. Wyant settled into third, followed by Iorio, Dellinger, Curtis J. Bish, and Tim Bish.
Schneider found his comfort zone on the next lap and assumed the lead, with Gordon remaining close in second.
A caution seven laps into the race bunched the field up. While there were no changes up front when racing resumed, there was an intense three car battle for the third position involving Wyant, Dellinger, and Bish.
Wyant separated himself from the others and moved in on the leaders. He took over second by lap ten. Soon thereafter, a caution for Gordon’s spin put Wyant right behind Schneider for the restart.
When racing resumed, Wyant drove by Schneider and began to pull away. Bish moved into third, while Dellinger and McGuire fought for the fourth position.
Although there was one other stoppage along the way, Wyant had a commanding lead as the race drew to a close. It seemed as though Wyant would win easily, but his car exploded and the engine compartment burst into flames as he came through turn two.
That handed the lead back to Schneider, with Bish on his tail, McGuire, Dellinger, Jackson Humanic, and Noah Brunell.
It took two tries with green-white-checkered finishes to put it in the books. On the final restart, Bish went in low, and powered by Schneider. Schneider slid out of the groove coming down the back stretch, surrendering second briefly to McGuire. However, Schneider was smooth and fast in the corners and he regained the second position.
At the finish, it was Curtis J. Bish, followed by Schneider, McGuire, Brunell, and Dellinger. Josh Seippel was the hard charger, advancing 17 positions to get the sixth position. Humanic, Gordon, Jason Johns, and Jeff Broniseiwski took the other top ten credits.
Five heats were run under the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group banner for the Penn Ohio Championship Series and Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks. Wins were chalked up by Chris Schneider, Andrew Gordon, Curt Bish, Jr. Doug Iorio, II, and Randy Wyant. The dash run in honor of Ray Virgile went to Jackson Humanic. All participants in the dash were drivers who benefited from Ray’s generous sponsorship. The twin B Mains went to Patrick Fielding and Jason Fosnaught. The non-qualifiers race went to Matt Bernard. The evening’s fastest qualifier was Randy Wyant, turning in a lap of 20.248 seconds.
In the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint division, NASCAR star Alex Bowman had the pole, flanked by Bob Felmlee, Leyton Wagner and Jeremy Weaver, subbing for Bob McMillin, were in the second row. Ken Rossey, Jr. was paired up with Logan McCandless in the third row, with Jack Sodeman, Jr. and last week’s winner, A.J. Flick, in the fourth,. Points leader Brandon Matus rolled off in row five, with his dad, Brent, next to him. Darin Gallagher and Rod Jones had row six and trailing the field were Bryan Salisbury and Steve Bright.
Bowman got the jump on Felmee at the start of the race, with Wagner, Sodeman, and Weaver following. Just as the field was getting settled in, Logan McCandless and Rod Jones tangled in turn four. Jones was out for the night, but McCandless was able to restart.
Bowman resumed the lead, and Sodeman moved into second. Felmlee and Wagner were in tow.
Bowman found a hole on the inside of turns one and two, bouncing through the corner and losing several positions. Soon thereafter the wing collapsed and he limped to the pit area ending his maiden voyage at Tri-City Raceway Park.
That handed the lead over to Felmlee, who had worked around Sodeman.

Felmlee continued to lead, as Brandon Matus and Flick started to move toward the front. Matus was the first casualty, spinning in turn four. When Flick did likewise several laps later, he was unable to rejoin the field dud to some front suspension damage.
Felmlee led the rest of the way. Sodeman lost second to his protege, Darin Gallagher, on lap 22. Brandon Matus worked his way back to the fourth spot, followed by Brent Matus.
Logan McCandless came back through the pack for sixth. Bryan Salisbury and Steve Bright were the last cars running at the finish. Wagner and Flick rounded out the top ten based on their laps completed.
Felmlee, who scored his thirty-second career win at Tri-City, had a tearful moment in victory lane. It was his first trip there since May 29 of 2011. “It was great, it’s a lot of work,” the veteran said. He explained that he was not troubled by the cautions at all, adding with a sly smile, “I am old and I need to relax a little.” He also remarked that he came back from racing motocross to get back into Sprint Cars. “I am doing it for this year and maybe next.”
The pair of Donovan & Bauer Auto Group heat races for the Shawgo Real Estate LLC Sprints went to Sodeman and Felmlee. There was no B Main.
In the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds, Travis Shingledecker had the pole, while his brother, Jeremiah started last due to his three consecutive wins. Next to Travis was Nick Joy. Kyle Inman and Kole Holden, substituting for Jimmy, went off in row two. Max Smoker and Kyle Fink had the third row occupied, with Lonnie Riggs and David Scott, pinch-hitting for Tom Holden, in the fourth row. Row five belonged to Kevin Hoffman and Sid Unverzagt, Jr. Jim Rasey, sitting in for D.J. Schrader, and the Reno Rocket, Les Myers, were in row six. Then came Kevin Green and Eric Beggs ahead of Jeremiah Shingledecker.
Travis Shingledecker moved to the lead at the drop of the green, followed by Joy, Inman, and Kole Holden.
Eric Beggs brought out his first caution on lap two, but Travis Shingledecker remained the leader when things got going again. Inman moved past Joy for the second spot and he was hounding Travis for the lead.
Inman made his move to the front of the field by lap five and Travis Shingeldecker was holding off Kole Holden, Scott, Joy, and Jeremiah Shingledecker, who had charged from the rear of the field.
Shortly before the halfway mark, Jeremiah Shingledecker put a strong move on Joy of the fourth spot. There was heavy contact in turn three and Joy went around, collecting Riggs in the process. Jeremiah Shingledecker was sent to the rear for the incident but, due to attrition, the penalty was not so severe.

On the restart, Inman led Travis Shingledecker, Kole Holden, and Scott. But Jeremiah Shingledecker was on the move again. He reached the top five quickly and soon he was challenging his younger brother for second.
Inman pulled up lame coming down the backstretch and that made it a sibling rivaly between Travis and Jeremiah. Travis put up the good fight, with Jeremiah looking high and low for a way around Travis. Travis moved down half a lane, taking away Jeremiah’s preferred inside line. So, with no place left to go, Jeremiah went back to the top. He drew up alongside Travis several times.
On lap 17, Jeremiah used the high line and came off turn four side by side with Travis. Travis did not back off, and his car drifted high, so Jeremiah checked up.
The next lap, Jeremiah made the same move. However, this time he had more momentum, and he came off turn four ahead to Travis. He swooped into turn one with the lead and went on to victory.
“I’d like to take my hat off to my brother,” Jeremiah said. “He drove a good race. I thought he had me. He made that car pretty wide. I was convinced that he was not going to back off, so I had to.”
After the brothers Shingledecker came Sid Unverzagt, Jr., Kole Holden, and Nick Joy. Lonnie Riggs came back for sixth. Rasey, Scott, Fink, and Inman were scored in the top ten.
The heat races for the Krill Recycling Modifieds were presented by Donovan & Bauer Auto Group. The winners were Jeremiah Shingledecker and Kyle Inman. There was no B Main.
The 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks went to the post with Hemi Kinneston and Bodey McClintock on the front row. Justin Bailey started third with D.J. Macrae next to him. Evan Sobieski and and Dalton Speer were in the third row, and Mike Barr and last week’s winner, Chad Greeley were next in line. Row five was populated by Levi Maskal and Nick Steiger. The sixth row had Tyler Ellenberger and Jamie Tasker.
In the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stock feature, it did not take long for the cream to rise to the top. Justin Bailey and Dalton Speer, the two contenders for the points championship, were batting for the lead. Speer took command before the halfway mark, and drove to the win.
Following Speer and Bailey across the line were Maskal, Greeley, and Body McClintock. Taking sixth was Macrae, with Jesse Armstrong, Sobieski, Matt Urey, and Howard Garlick completing the top ten.
There were a pair of heat races contested for the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group. The winners in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks were Dalton Speer and Justin Bailey. There was no B Main.
Next week, August 1, Tri-City Raceway Park will have a Sunday Thunder program, consisting of the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sporint Cars, Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds, Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, and 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks.

Curtis J. Bish Wins Ray’s Race;
Felmlee, Jeremiah Shingledecker, and Speer Also Win

(Franklin, PA July 25, 2021): The Pro Stocks took center stage at Tri-City Raceway Park, as the Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship invaded the speedway for the annual running of Ray’s Race, which honored the late Ray Virgile. Ray was a huge supporter of the Pro Stock division, especially at his home track. The best regional talent joined with the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply contingent for a banner 41 car field. Taking the $3,500 win was Curtis J. Bish.
Joining him in victory celebrations were 59 year old Bob Felmlee in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars, Jeremiah Shingledecker in the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds, and Dalton Speer in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks.
“I was sorry to see Randy Wyant break or blow up, or whatever happened to him,” Bish said. At the time misfortune struck, Wyant was flying toward the checked flag on what should have been the last lap. That led to a pair of green-white-checkered runs to the finish and, on the second one, Bish was able to muscle his way past Chris Schneider who had inherited the lead from Wyant.
“That last lap pass, I was going to go to the top, but he missed the middle, and I turned under him,” Bish said. “I just tried to stay on the bottom after that.”
The Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship race had Chris Schneider and Andrew Gordon on the front row. Doug Iorio, II and Randy Wyant were in row two. Alan Dellinger and Jamie Duncan lined up in the third row, with Tim Bish and Curtis J. Bish in the fourth. Joe Stajnrajh and Curt Bish, Jr. were set for for five, but Stajnrajh opted to start at the rear. William Hurrelbrink and Chris McGuire were set for row six.
Although Schneider led the field into turn one, it was Gordon who rode the rim to take the lead on the opening lap. Wyant settled into third, followed by Iorio, Dellinger, Curtis J. Bish, and Tim Bish.
Schneider found his comfort zone on the next lap and assumed the lead, with Gordon remaining close in second.
A caution seven laps into the race bunched the field up. While there were no changes up front when racing resumed, there was an intense three car battle for the third position involving Wyant, Dellinger, and Bish.
Wyant separated himself from the others and moved in on the leaders. He took over second by lap ten. Soon thereafter, a caution for Gordon’s spin put Wyant right behind Schneider for the restart.
When racing resumed, Wyant drove by Schneider and began to pull away. Bish moved into third, while Dellinger and McGuire fought for the fourth position.
Although there was one other stoppage along the way, Wyant had a commanding lead as the race drew to a close. It seemed as though Wyant would win easily, but his car exploded and the engine compartment burst into flames as he came through turn two.
That handed the lead back to Schneider, with Bish on his tail, McGuire, Dellinger, Jackson Humanic, and Noah Brunell.
It took two tries with green-white-checkered finishes to put it in the books. On the final restart, Bish went in low, and powered by Schneider. Schneider slid out of the groove coming down the back stretch, surrendering second briefly to McGuire. However, Schneider was smooth and fast in the corners and he regained the second position.
At the finish, it was Curtis J. Bish, followed by Schneider, McGuire, Brunell, and Dellinger. Josh Seippel was the hard charger, advancing 17 positions to get the sixth position. Humanic, Gordon, Jason Johns, and Jeff Broniseiwski took the other top ten credits.
Five heats were run under the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group banner for the Penn Ohio Championship Series and Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks. Wins were chalked up by Chris Schneider, Andrew Gordon, Curt Bish, Jr. Doug Iorio, II, and Randy Wyant. The dash run in honor of Ray Virgile went to Jackson Humanic. All participants in the dash were drivers who benefited from Ray’s generous sponsorship. The twin B Mains went to Patrick Fielding and Jason Fosnaught. The non-qualifiers race went to Matt Bernard. The evening’s fastest qualifier was Randy Wyant, turning in a lap of 20.248 seconds.
In the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint division, NASCAR star Alex Bowman had the pole, flanked by Bob Felmlee, Leyton Wagner and Jeremy Weaver, subbing for Bob McMillin, were in the second row. Ken Rossey, Jr. was paired up with Logan McCandless in the third row, with Jack Sodeman, Jr. and last week’s winner, A.J. Flick, in the fourth,. Points leader Brandon Matus rolled off in row five, with his dad, Brent, next to him. Darin Gallagher and Rod Jones had row six and trailing the field were Bryan Salisbury and Steve Bright.
Bowman got the jump on Felmee at the start of the race, with Wagner, Sodeman, and Weaver following. Just as the field was getting settled in, Logan McCandless and Rod Jones tangled in turn four. Jones was out for the night, but McCandless was able to restart.
Bowman resumed the lead, and Sodeman moved into second. Felmlee and Wagner were in tow.
Bowman found a hole on the inside of turns one and two, bouncing through the corner and losing several positions. Soon thereafter the wing collapsed and he limped to the pit area ending his maiden voyage at Tri-City Raceway Park.
That handed the lead over to Felmlee, who had worked around Sodeman.

Felmlee continued to lead, as Brandon Matus and Flick started to move toward the front. Matus was the first casualty, spinning in turn four. When Flick did likewise several laps later, he was unable to rejoin the field dud to some front suspension damage.
Felmlee led the rest of the way. Sodeman lost second to his protege, Darin Gallagher, on lap 22. Brandon Matus worked his way back to the fourth spot, followed by Brent Matus.
Logan McCandless came back through the pack for sixth. Bryan Salisbury and Steve Bright were the last cars running at the finish. Wagner and Flick rounded out the top ten based on their laps completed.
Felmlee, who scored his thirty-second career win at Tri-City, had a tearful moment in victory lane. It was his first trip there since May 29 of 2011. “It was great, it’s a lot of work,” the veteran said. He explained that he was not troubled by the cautions at all, adding with a sly smile, “I am old and I need to relax a little.” He also remarked that he came back from racing motocross to get back into Sprint Cars. “I am doing it for this year and maybe next.”
The pair of Donovan & Bauer Auto Group heat races for the Shawgo Real Estate LLC Sprints went to Sodeman and Felmlee. There was no B Main.
In the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds, Travis Shingledecker had the pole, while his brother, Jeremiah started last due to his three consecutive wins. Next to Travis was Nick Joy. Kyle Inman and Kole Holden, substituting for Jimmy, went off in row two. Max Smoker and Kyle Fink had the third row occupied, with Lonnie Riggs and David Scott, pinch-hitting for Tom Holden, in the fourth row. Row five belonged to Kevin Hoffman and Sid Unverzagt, Jr. Jim Rasey, sitting in for D.J. Schrader, and the Reno Rocket, Les Myers, were in row six. Then came Kevin Green and Eric Beggs ahead of Jeremiah Shingledecker.
Travis Shingledecker moved to the lead at the drop of the green, followed by Joy, Inman, and Kole Holden.
Eric Beggs brought out his first caution on lap two, but Travis Shingledecker remained the leader when things got going again. Inman moved past Joy for the second spot and he was hounding Travis for the lead.
Inman made his move to the front of the field by lap five and Travis Shingeldecker was holding off Kole Holden, Scott, Joy, and Jeremiah Shingledecker, who had charged from the rear of the field.
Shortly before the halfway mark, Jeremiah Shingledecker put a strong move on Joy of the fourth spot. There was heavy contact in turn three and Joy went around, collecting Riggs in the process. Jeremiah Shingledecker was sent to the rear for the incident but, due to attrition, the penalty was not so severe.

On the restart, Inman led Travis Shingledecker, Kole Holden, and Scott. But Jeremiah Shingledecker was on the move again. He reached the top five quickly and soon he was challenging his younger brother for second.
Inman pulled up lame coming down the backstretch and that made it a sibling rivaly between Travis and Jeremiah. Travis put up the good fight, with Jeremiah looking high and low for a way around Travis. Travis moved down half a lane, taking away Jeremiah’s preferred inside line. So, with no place left to go, Jeremiah went back to the top. He drew up alongside Travis several times.
On lap 17, Jeremiah used the high line and came off turn four side by side with Travis. Travis did not back off, and his car drifted high, so Jeremiah checked up.
The next lap, Jeremiah made the same move. However, this time he had more momentum, and he came off turn four ahead to Travis. He swooped into turn one with the lead and went on to victory.
“I’d like to take my hat off to my brother,” Jeremiah said. “He drove a good race. I thought he had me. He made that car pretty wide. I was convinced that he was not going to back off, so I had to.”
After the brothers Shingledecker came Sid Unverzagt, Jr., Kole Holden, and Nick Joy. Lonnie Riggs came back for sixth. Rasey, Scott, Fink, and Inman were scored in the top ten.
The heat races for the Krill Recycling Modifieds were presented by Donovan & Bauer Auto Group. The winners were Jeremiah Shingledecker and Kyle Inman. There was no B Main.
The 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks went to the post with Hemi Kinneston and Bodey McClintock on the front row. Justin Bailey started third with D.J. Macrae next to him. Evan Sobieski and and Dalton Speer were in the third row, and Mike Barr and last week’s winner, Chad Greeley were next in line. Row five was populated by Levi Maskal and Nick Steiger. The sixth row had Tyler Ellenberger and Jamie Tasker.
In the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stock feature, it did not take long for the cream to rise to the top. Justin Bailey and Dalton Speer, the two contenders for the points championship, were batting for the lead. Speer took command before the halfway mark, and drove to the win.
Following Speer and Bailey across the line were Maskal, Greeley, and Body McClintock. Taking sixth was Macrae, with Jesse Armstrong, Sobieski, Matt Urey, and Howard Garlick completing the top ten.
There were a pair of heat races contested for the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group. The winners in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks were Dalton Speer and Justin Bailey. There was no B Main.
Next week, August 1, Tri-City Raceway Park will have a Sunday Thunder program, consisting of the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sporint Cars, Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds, Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, and 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks.

Austin McCarl, Taylor and Dusty Ballenger Post Wins at Huset's Speedway During Nordstrom's Automotive Night

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (July 25, 2021) - The winningest driver at Huset's Speedway this season returned to Victory Lane and was joined by a pair of first-time winners on Sunday during Nordstrom's Automotive Night.

Austin McCarl capitalized on a late-race slide job to score his fifth Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig win of the season after Shaun Taylor garnered the Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks victory and Dusty Ballenger captured the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series feature.

The Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig main event featured three different leaders during the 25-lap race. Tyler Drueke led the first 10 laps before McCarl took the top spot with a slide job in turn four.

McCarl led the ensuing seven laps before Mark Dobmeier used a slide job in turns three and four to power into the top spot. Dobmeier navigated traffic with McCarl in tow until Lap 24 when McCarl slid Dobmeier entering turn one. Dobmeier's momentum was halted and McCarl built a 0.989 second advantage as the checkered flag was waved.

"Honestly, I got a little too complacent there in traffic," McCarl said. "I didn't want to pull the trigger too soon. I feel I lost something last week overdriving and cost myself a win. We started to get into some heavy traffic and I seen four (laps) to go. I waited for him to get into some traffic and got him the same way he got me. Patience paid off."

Dobmeier posted a season-best outing at Huset's Speedway with a second-place result.

"We made a few changes and we definitely got things rocking and rolling," he said. "I think I got too complacent with the lapped cars. I should have been up on the wheel a little bit harder. He did a great slide job and I had to check up pretty hard."

Carson McCarl advanced two positions for a third-place showing.

"That traffic was nuts," he said. "I saw Mark pass Austin for the lead and I was gaining on him. There were about three or four lapped cars and I couldn't get around them. I kept telling myself if I can't get by then nobody else can behind me. I'm glad it was a great race and a McCarl came out on top."

Drueke finished fourth with points leader Justin Henderson ending fifth.

Carson McCarl set quick time during qualifying before Jody Rosenboom, Henderson and Drueke won the heat races.

Taylor's first win of the season at Huset's Speedway came at the right time as his Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks triumph came with a $500 bonus courtesy of Nordstrom's Automotive.

"I love Huset's Speedway," he said. "I'm glad to be back in Victory Lane."

Ron Howe paced the field for the first four laps before Taylor passed him for the lead. While Taylor led the final 16 laps, Matt Steuerwald stayed within striking distance for the second half of the race after moving into second place on Lap 8. Taylor hit his marks lap after lap to win by 0.278 seconds.

Zach Olivier finished third with Brandon Ferguson advancing from 14 th to fourth and Brylee Gough from 15th to fifth.

Craig Hanisch and Billy Prouty each won a heat race.

Ballenger became the ninth different Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series feature winner in 10 races this season to add to his lead in the championship standings.

Following a red flag on the opening lap for a multiple-car crash in turn two, Tim Rustad led the first 15 laps of the 20-lap feature before Ballenger used the bottom in turns one and two to power into the top spot. He then pulled away to win by 2.339 seconds.

"It's just great to finally get a win," he said. "It was a really good race track tonight."

Rustad held on for a career-best runner-up result with Shane Fick rounding out the podium. Aaron Werner placed fourth and Lee Goos Jr. was the fifth-place finisher.

Werner, Micah Slendy and Goos Jr. were the heat race winners.

The Bull Haulers Brawl presented by Folkens Brothers Trucking, which pays $10,000 to win the Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig main event, is next Sunday. Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks and the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series will also be in action.

Stuart Snyder Claims URSS Victory at US 36 Raceway

OSBORN, Missouri (July 25, 2021) – The sizzling summer heat was in full force on Friday at US 36 Raceway for the Drive to Zero United Rebel Sprint Series Presented by Mel Hambelton Ford Racing. Thirteen cars were in attendance for the second ever United Rebel Sprint Series appearance at the 3/8-mile, but it was Lincoln, Nebraska’s Stuart Snyder taking the top prize with a last lap pass.

The 20-lap feature event saw Jay Russell and Stuart Snyder with front row starting positions. Russell took off with the early lead out of turns one and two, but Snyder challenged back by diamonding the apex in three and four. Red would fly over the field for Kevin Dye flipping in turn three over the cushion.

A complete restart again had Russell prevailing with the race lead, while Snyder bounced violently through turn one. Snyder was able to gather control of the car, and started to reel back in on Russell for the lead. Mike Houseman, Jr. sat in third while Zach Blurton and JR Topper dueled for fourth place. Snyder closed in on the race lead but was unable to make a move. Zach Blurton claimed fourth and began to challenge Houseman, Jr. for third.

With six laps in the books, Ty Williams moved into fifth. Lap traffic became a factor for the top runners, allowing Blurton to claim the third position and later Williams moving into fourth over Houseman, Jr. Snyder continued to pressure a smoking Russell for the race lead. With one lap remaining, Snyder gave a last-ditch effort at a slide job going into turn one. The slide job stuck, giving Snyder the race lead over Russell. Stu Snyder took home the $1,000 top prize, with Jay Russell and Zach Blurton completing the podium finishers. Ty Williams and Jeremy Huish rounded out the top five.

Heat race action was won by Jeremy Huish and Zach Blurton. The Keizer Aluminum Wheels hard charger was awarded to Ty Williams, after finishing fourth from a ninth place starting position.

Saturday’s event at Bethany Speedway in Bethany, Missouri saw competitors signing in for action until the skies opened with persistent rain, forcing race officials to cancel the event.

Logan McCandless magical in “Big mav classic” leading flag to flag in the Racesaver 305s.

By Jim Balentine July 24 2021 Mercer, Pa

2nd generation driver Logan McCandless, who grew up at Mercer watching his father Greg compete, bested a strong field of Racesaver 305 sprints to win the 2nd annual “Big Mav classic” in honor of the late Brandon Hawkins’ son Maverick, collecting $2,727 for first place and also picked up 27 laps of lap money leading flag to flag in the biggest win of his young career.

15 time limited modified winner Eric Gabany also from Mercer, picked up his 1st career big block modified win in the Rick Ryder #18 holding off Tom Glenn.

Eric Martin won his 2nd career FASTRAK modified feature and his first since June of 2019 holding off veteran Bill Adams.

Carl Ealy picked up his 3rd mini stock feature win this season defeating Adam Aley and Phil King.

The “Big Mav classic” which is a race to honor Maverick Hawkins who is the son of the late Brandon Hawkins who competed at Mercer and elsewhere in his #27H 305 sprint. Brandon lost his life in a construction accident last year at the young age of 26 and the family and his fellow drivers created this special race in his memory. Logan McCandless in his 2nd year competing in the Racesaver 305 sprints has had an incredible sophomore season and he not only won his 4th Mercer Racesaver 305 sprint feature, but the highest paying event for the division this season taking home $2,727 for the win and also led every lap to take all the lap money home just up the road from the speedway. McCandless and fast qualifier and last year’s winner Greg Dobrosky would start on the front row of the 27 lap affair with McCandless taking the lead from the start. Dobrosky would keep pace with the leader until he encountered a lapped car on the backstretch dropping several positions as he spun but kept going so the yellow flag never came out. Jeremy Kornbau who also has come into his own in a sprint car finishing 2nd in both the 410s and 305s over 2 years would move into second but could not catch McCandless as he won by 4 seconds. “It feels amazing! car was great and the competition was stout tonight and I was lucky to start up front. I saw Kornbau’s nose and I knew he was there and I just kept going. It feels great! I want to thank my family, my dad and my crew for giving me a great car.” Kornbau would again finish 2nd, Andy Cavanaugh finished a career best 3rd, Steve Cousins 4th, and Greg Dobrosky rebounded to finish 5th.

Another hometown boy Eric Gabany, who also has Been coming to Mercer since a young child picked up his first career big block modified win after winning 15 times in the limited modified class at his home track. Gabany got around pole sitter Kyle Fink who also won his first career big block win earlier in the season, and was never threatened in the 20 lapper. “This is awesome it took me awhile to get this and it’s great .. we have a really good team, the car has been super strong the past few weeks . Everything is working out great and we are finally catching up.” Tom Glenn was 2nd, JR McGinley 3rd, Brad Rapp 4th and Kyle Fink ended up 5th.

In the FASTRAK modifieds Eric Martin made an infrequent visit and picked up his 2nd career feature event and his first since June of 2019. Martin started outside of pole sitter Billy Adams who has five career wins to his credit and was never challenged in the 20 lap race. Billy Adams would again score a 2nd place finish. “I want to thank my dad, he can’t be here he had a reaction to the Covid shot this means a lot to me. I have 2 little Foster girls with me right now and I will hopefully getting 2 more here soon. I need to thank Eric Rudolph for helping me with restarts and coming off the corners.” Shayne Izzo would finish 3rd, Brian Schaffer 4th and Eric Gabany 5th.

15 time winner Pete Blaczak and 1 time winner Adam Aley would start on the front row of the 15 lap mini stock nightcapper. Both ran side by side with Aley leading lap one. Aley would increase his lead as he quickly was in lapped traffic by lap 5. Meanwhile behind him Blaczak, Carl Ealy, Joe Campbell, and Andy Thompson would be running in a close pack trying to hunt down Aley. After a caution for Patrick Lane on the restart Campbell went high in turn one losing momentum and positions as Carl Ealy went around Aley with 5 to go and held on for his 3rd career win in 3 features this season making him and Andy Thompson the only winners in 2021. Aley would finish 2nd, Phil King from 12th finished 3rd, Andy Thompson 4th, and Pete Blaczak 5th.

Tanner Carrick, Tyler Lightfoot, Nick Baldwin and Ben Wiesz score Placerville Speedway wins Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…When it comes to consistent speed over the last couple months few have been better than Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick, who claimed his third victory in his last three Placerville Speedway starts with the Thompson’s Winged 360 Sprint Cars on Saturday.

By winning the feature Carrick also took home a $1,000 bonus courtesy of the Dent Family and Thompson’s Family of Dealerships in memory of Tom Schirle. Sharing victory lane during Fan Appreciation Night on Saturday were Tyler Lightfoot with the Ltd. Late Models, Nick Baldwin with the Pure Stocks and Ben Wiesz with the Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association. A total of 87 race cars filled the hill at the event.

Carrick started on the outside of the front row and jumped into the lead at the waving of the green flag in the 25-lap Sprint Car main event. The 19-year-old was never seriously challenged, as the first 13-laps clicked off non-stop and he held the rest of the field at bay through traffic. ADCO Driveline fast qualifier Willie Croft was in search of a clean sweep for the night and ran second over the first half of the race, until Penngrove’s Colby Johnson battled his way past with 15-circuits complete.

Johnson was fun to watch as he pounded the cushion while working his way forward in the feature. Carrick rolled the bottom to perfection however and went on to take the checkered flag for his fifth career Placerville triumph. One week after tallying a career best finish at the track Johnson came back and bettered that to snag an impressive runner up effort. Justyn Cox, Croft and Andy Forsberg completed the top-five.

Kalib Henry charged from 17th to sixth with Bubba Decaires, Blake Carrick, Shane Hopkins and Michael Ing rounding out the top-10. With point leader Joel Myers Jr. getting upside down in the main event, Forsberg now goes into the Mark Forni Classic on August 7th holding a one-point lead at the top of the standings. A strong field of 29 Winged 360 Sprint Cars were on hand during the show.

Sprint Car finish: 1. 83T-Tanner Carrick[2]; 2. 38-Colby Johnson[4]; 3. 7C-Justyn Cox[3]; 4. 29-Willie Croft[1]; 5. X1-Andy Forsberg[5]; 6. 5J-Kalib Henry[17]; 7. 94-Greg Decaires V[6]; 8. 38B-Blake Carrick[10]; 9. 21-Shane Hopkins[15]; 10. 21X-Michael Ing[11]; 11. 9-Reece Goetz[14]; 12. 15-Michael Sellers[12]; 13. 61-Travis Labat[18]; 14. 87-Ashlyn Rodriguez[7]; 15. 16X-Andy Gregg[8]; 16. 83SA-Isaiah Vasquez[9]; 17. 46JR-Joel Myers Jr[20]; 18. 01JR-Tyler Brown[13]; 19. 34-Landon Brooks[19]; 20. 24-Justin Henry[16]

Placerville’s Tyler Lightfoot had car issues early on which could have left him parked for the night. The two-time winner this year however, proceeded to climb aboard the Paul Gugliomoni machine and ended up driving to his third triumph of the season in the main event. Diamond Springs’ Dan Jinkerson kept Lightfoot honest over much of the race as he looked to find a way by for the top-spot. Lightfoot never faltered though and crossed under the checkered flag for another victory. Jinkerson came home second over Randy Shafer, Rod Oliver and Eddie Gardner.

Ltd. Late Model finish: 1. 23J-Tyler Lightfoot[1]; 2. 23-Dan Jinkerson[3]; 3. 22G-Randy Shafer[5]; 4. 57-Rod Oliver[2]; 5. 3-Eddie Gardner[10]; 6. 23T-Tom Tilford[4]; 7. 1-Ted Ahart[8]; 8. 4X-Anthony Slaney[6]

Oakley’s Nick Baldwin continues to be the man to beat at the Placerville Speedway in the Pure Stock division. After lining up on the pole Baldwin drove a phenomenal 20-lap contest on Saturday to earn his sixth victory of the season on the quarter-mile. By doing so he extended his current point lead with just three events remaining. Kevin Jinkerson put together another solid night to finish second over Ryan Peter, Jason Poppert and Jimmy Wall in the top-five.

Pure Stock finish: 1. 17-Nick Baldwin[1]; 2. 30-Kevin Jinkerson[6]; 3. 83-Ryan Peter[3]; 4. 87-Jason Poppert[8]; 5. 68E-Jimmy Wall[2]; 6. X86-David Silvia[7]; 7. 5-Cody Rickard[13]; 8. 43-Kenny Bernstein[9]; 9. 47-Michael Murphy[10]; 10. 23-Bill O'Neal[4]; 11. 4-Jonny Walsh[11]; 12. 93-Mel Byers[15]; 13. 316-Ryan Murphy[14]; 14. 14-Scott Grunert[5]

As always, the Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association brought out a stellar field of cars with 32 total on hand. Colfax competitor Ben Wiesz rolled the middle of the speedway to grab the lead early on and held off all challengers to get his second win of the season at Placerville Speedway. Galt’s Ryan Winter tried his best at running the high side of the speedway in pursuit of the leader but couldn’t quite get around it smooth enough to shoot past Wiesz.

Mike “Spanky” Grenert slipped under Winter late to earn a second place finish. Winter, Mike Reeder, Shawn Whitney, Dan Geil, Austin Quilty, Chuck Conover, Gage Meyers and Fred Dickey completed the top-10 in the 20-lap feature.

Dwarf Car finish: 1. 57N-Ben Wiesz[6]; 2. 12N-Mike Grenert[9]; 3. 28N-Ryan Winter[8]; 4. 72N-Mike Reeder[2]; 5. 15N-Shawn Whitney[17]; 6. 32N-Dan Geil[5]; 7. 6N-Austin Quilty[10]; 8. 52DD-Chuck Conover[15]; 9. 99N-gage meyers[20]; 10. 21N-Fred Dickey[12]; 11. 14E-Tommy Velasquez III[7]; 12. 31N-Dylan Shrum[16]; 13. 42N-Isaak Geil[13]; 14. 16N-Brian Quilty[11]; 15. 36N-Jameson Sole[14]; 16. 59N-Austin Struthers[3]; 17. 71R-John Peters[1]; 18. 31R-Carroll Mendenhall[4]; 19. 12R-Sam Borland[19]; 20. 83N-Sam Wren[18]

The Placerville Speedway will be dark this weekend with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour competing at Merced Speedway on Saturday. The El Dorado County Fairgrounds bullring will return to action with the 16th annual Mark Forni Classic on Saturday August 7th.

 

 

TREY JACOBS NAILS WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY SPRINT WIN

Orrville, Ohio

Saturday, July 24, 2021

By Mike Swanger

After a week off because of rain, all five class' were ready to get back to race action on White's Ford night at Wayne County Speedway. The Pine Tree Towing & Recovery Sprint feature would be led to the green flag by Trey Jacobs and Broc Martin but a caution for a spun Joe Adorjan on the first attempt to get a lap in and then another caution on lap two for Dylan Kingan and Jonah Aumend got together in turn one. Jacobs and his Performance Foot & Ankle, DAC, and Jacobs Motorsports #3j grabbed the lead on the restart as points leader Martin would follow. Racing for a top five position, Chris Myers, Henry Malcuit and Nick Patterson got together coming out of turn four on lap four to bring out the yellow flag and only Patterson would be able to continue. As the race resumed, Martin would loose control of his ride and spin while in second to cause another caution before lap five could be completed. This would give Jacobs time to build up a lead as Danny Mumaw, Ricky Peterson Dean Jacobs and Andrew Palker dueled for second. The race would go red on lap 21 when Mumaw, running second, got into the lapped car of Wyatt Zimmerman and both went flipping in turn three, ending both of their nights. With four to go, Trey Jacobs pulled away on the return to green as Peterson and Dean Jacobs dueled for second but Peterson's ride would slow with problems and stopped to bring out the caution. The final laps would see Trey keep his Dad, Dean, at bay as the Wooster driver secured his 1st win of the season as Dean finished second to his son. Palker ended up third while Zach Ames grabbed a season best 4th with Jason Dolick claiming fifth. Heat winners were Martin and Dean Jacobs.

Dave Hornikel and J R Gentry stayed side by side for the opening three circuits of the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Model main before Gentry secured the top spot on lap three. A crazy wreck on lap four stopped the action when points leader Mitch Caskey spun in turn four and with his front end facing oncoming traffic, Jerry Aber ran over the front of Caskey's car and rolled over the top of it. Aber would end up on all fours with the roof of the #24 bent. Caskey would continue as Aber went pitside. With caution flags sprinkled throught the race, Gentry kept the lead as Ryan Markham tried to close in on Gentry as Wes Morrison, Hornikel and Charlie Duncan battled for third. Markham reeled in Gentry as the El Campesino Restaurent, Skurts Custom Apparel and Under Pressure Washing #14 looked be having problems. During a lap 16 caution, track officials checked Gentry's car for a flat tire but there was none losing pressure and on the restart, pulled away from Markham, who would bring out the caution with 2 to go with a flat tire of his own, ending his second place run. Morrison moved into second at that point and finished there for his best finish as Duncan took third. Caskey worked his way back for a fourth place finish as Hornikel held on to fifth. Larry Bellman and Markham scored the heat wins.

Driving a sister car of the Kepling Floors, Arnold Motorsports and Moore Brothers Modified #1* Bellville's Colton Shaw lead all the way for his first win in the CORBON Ammunition Modified feature. Jesse Wardell and D J Cline pursued Shaw in the early laps until a caution waved on lap five. In the other MBR #11* Kyle Moore motored past both Wardell and Cline for second on the restart and quickly tracked down his team car. As the two went into turn three on lap 17, Moore tried to get to the inside of Shaw and they made contact with both spinning. Shaw would retain his lead with Moore going to the tail. Shaw pulled away from Cline in the final laps for the win as Cline held second at the finish. Moore charged back in the final laps to collect third in front of Nate Young and Wardell. Shaw and Moore topped the heat races.

Tyler Wiles set the pace for the opening four laps of the McKenzie Concrete Super Stock feature until sixth starting Kyle Moore took over at that point. Seven cars were in a dogfight for second place and Brandon Morrow and Paul Holmes got together going down the backstretch on lap 6 with Holmes getting into the dirt embankment going inti turn three ending his race. Moore would build a big lead and the Mansfield driver put the CORBON Ammunition, R C Kuhn & Sons and United Concrete #21d into the Summit Racing victory circle for the fourth time this season. Morrow recovered from his incident with Holmes to take second as Chase Alexander, Brandon Craver and Rob Melzer rounded out the top five. Moore and Holmes picked up the heat wins.

At the drop of the green flag of the JOYRIDE Transport Mini Stock feature, it looked like everyone wanted to be the leader as four wide going down the backstretch on the opening lap wasnt a good idea as pole sitter Ryan Carder ended up rolling his car after hitting the dirt embankment going into turn three. On the restart, it was a battle of Hensel's for the lead with Brad leading Doug with Johnny Bruce right behind and Loudonville's Jordan James working his way to 4th from his eighth starting position. James took third from Bruce on the 8th circuit, On lap ten, Brad Hensel pulled off the backstretch while leading as Doug Hensel's car slowed allowing James and his Ugly Duck Bar & Grill, Brad's Autobody and Lochevale Farms #83 to take the lead and drive to his sixth win of the year and expanding his O'Reilly's Auto Parts 'Race to the Championship' points lead. Bruce finished second with Mitch Reichard, Kyle Petit and David Coffin filling out the top five. Grabbing the heat wins were Doug Hensel and Steven Lester.

Drivers were once again chasing after the Contingency Connection 'Racer's Rewards' prizes for the night and yearly awards.

Next Saturday, July 31, another Fast Five program will take place plus the Vintage Auto Racing Club will have some of their cars on display.

Wood captures first Sooner Sprint victory at Enid

by John Rittenoure - ENID, Okla. (July 24, 2021) - There was no stopping Danny Wood from becoming the sixth different Sooner Sprint Series winner Saturday at Enid Speedway.

The veteran racer from Norman drove his Midwest Wrecking, Total Trucking sprinter into an early lead and set a fast pace around the 3/8’s mile Enid oval. Austin Shores gave chase but he was soon challenged by Sheldon Barksdale who won at Enid on June 5. Midway through the race Barksdale finally got around Shores and set out after Wood.

In the final laps Wood encountered lapped traffic and Barksdale was able to close some ground. As Barksdale closed in time ran out and Wood crossed the finish line first with Barksdale settling for second. Shores held on to third over Alison Slaton in fourth.

The next Sooner Sprint Series event is scheduled for Monarch Motor Speedway on August 28.

McMullen, Justin Schmidt, Kulow, Travis Schmidt take center stage on PDTR Dave Deicher Tribute Night

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 24, 2021– On a night honoring one of the most beloved former racers and flagmen in the 71-year history of The Plymouth Dirt Track, Plymouth Dirt Track Racing put on a show in every sense of the word highlighted by thrilling finishes, special tributes, impromptu reunions and a post-race party on Dave Deicher Tribute Night at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 24.

In the 360 Sprint Car A main, two-time PDTR division champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh collected his third overall and second consecutiveKristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty 360 Sprint Car main event victory of the 2021 campaign.

Three-time and defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland notched his third consecutive and fifth overall Sheboygan’s County 93.7 Late Model A-main victory of the 2021 season.

2019 PDTR Grand National champ Tyler Kulow of Plymouth earned his second A-main victory of the 2021 campaign in theOostburg Automotive A main and Travis Schmidt of Plymouth notched his second Cellcom B Mod A main victory of the 2021 season.

Two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee grabbed the lead on the drop of the green flag on the opening lap of the special 26-lap A main run in honor the No. 26 that Deicher carried for many years on his Winged Super Modified.

On lap 5, outside front row starter Tyler Brabant of Waupun worked the outside groove of the wide, smooth and slick race surface to pressure Davis for the top spot. After Davis used the low line to pull away from Brabant, fourth starter Kevin Karnitz of West Bend charged in to take over second in the running order on lap 11.

Four laps later, the lone caution flag of the race appeared on lap 15 when Brabant spun in turn two. Following the restart, Davis maintained the top spot with Karnitz in tow, while the seventh starting Brandon McMullen moved into third along the middle groove.

On lap 21, McMullen worked around Karnitz to take second and quickly closed the gap on Davis. With one lap to go, McMullen ducked under Davis along the inside groove exiting turn four on lap 25.

Davis battled back on the final lap to pull even with McMullen in turn one. The former champions dueled side by side to the finish with McMullen nipping Davis by a narrow margin to collect his 23rd career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory and 33rd overall Midwest Sprint Car Association main event win.

McMullen’s victory moved him into a tie for second place on the all-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory list with two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Danny Schlafer of Sussex.

Davis had to settle for second, Karnitz finished third, point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan Falls moved up from his 12th starting spot to finish fourth and third starter Tim Haddy of Waupun rounded out the top five.

Joe Bongiorno of Milwaukee bolted into the lead on the opening lap of the 26-lap Late Model A main from the pole position before the lone caution flag of the race appeared on lap 2 when Donny Singer of Random Lake and Chad Ludwigson of Sheboygan Falls got stuck together and stopped exiting turn four.

Following the restart, third starter Bill Edler of Howards Grove, who was making his debut behind the wheel of a Late Model, worked his way into second. On lap 5, seventh starter Taylor Scheffler of Waukesha began his charge to the front of the pack as he moved into fourth.

While Bongiorno built up a full straightaway cushion over Edler at the front of the field, Scheffler used the outside groove to power around sixth starter Charlie Schmidt of Cedar Grove into third on lap 11 and Edler into second on lap 12.

By lap 16, Scheffler had closed the gap on Bongiorno, while eighth starter Justin Schmidt worked his way into third.

As Bongiorno hit lapped traffic, Scheffler rode the high line into the lead in turn three on lap 19, while Justin Schmidt assumed second on lap 22.

One lap later, Schmidt cut the gap significantly on Scheffler before shooting into the lead with a low move in turn four on lap 24 in heavy lapped traffic. Scheffler powered back to the cushion to duel side-by-side with Justin Schmidt to the finish line.

However, it was not quite enough as Justin Schmidt held on to secure his 18th career PDTR A-main victory and fifth A-main victory at The Plymouth Dirt Track in the last six main event races.

Scheffler placed a close second, Bongiorno held on for a PDTR Late Model career-best third-place showing, Edler posted a career-best PDTR Late Model fourth-place-finish in his division debut and Charlie Schmidt rounded out the top five.

Polesitter Dick Hed of Plymouth took the lead in turn one of the opening lap of the 26-lap Grand National A main with third starter Tyler Kulow moving into second.

The first of four caution flags was displayed on lap 3 when Andy Singer spun in turn one. On lap later, Andy Singer spun again in turn three to bring out the second caution flag of the race.

On the restart, 2018 PDTR Grand National champ Matt Loehr of Dotyville worked up from the 11th starting spot to make it a three-way duel for the lead with Hed and two-time PDTR Grand National champion Don Sorce Jr. of West Allis, who started sixth.

However, Hed and Sorce Jr. made contact in turn three on lap 6 to send Sorce Jr. spinning in turn four, which brought out the third caution flag of the race. Hed and Sorce Jr. were each sent to the rear of the field following the incident.

Kulow controlled the restart, while Loehr moved in to challenge for the top spot on lap 9. Loehr closed up to within inches of Kulow’s bumper before rookie MavrickRuh of Sheboygan Falls spun in turn one to bring out the fourth and final caution flag of the race on lap 24.

Kulow held strong on the final single-file restart as he secured his 10th career PDTR Grand National A-main victory. Loehr finished second, fifth starter Luke Scholten of Oostburg placed third, Donny Kulow of Elkhart Lake, who started seventh, finished fourth and Sorce Jr. rallied from his lap 6 incident to place fifth.

After a spin involving Donny Singer brought out the first of five caution flags to negate the initial start, outside front row starter Kyle Odekirk of Plymouth outdueled polesitter Justin Bauer of Sheboygan Falls to grab the lead on lap 2.

The second caution flag appeared on lap 2 when Phil Campanella of Sheboygan Falls spun in turn three. After the restart, Odekirk held down the top spot as Bauer held second and fourth starter Trevor Frank of Sheboygan moved into third.

The third caution was displayed when rookie Vince Jung spun in turn four on lap 6 right before the fourth caution flag appeared when two-time PDTR B Mod champion Tim Warner of Fond du Lac hit the turn two wall.

On the restart, 10th starter Travis Schmidt began to make his presence felt as he maneuvered his way into third.As Odekirk remained in front by a full straightaway, Schmidt assumed second with a high move past Bauer in turn four on lap 14.

Meanwhile, Odekirk held a commanding full straightaway lead on lap 15. On lap 19, Frank worked past Bauer to take over third on lap 20. Just as Odekirk appeared headed to the victory, Schmidt caught a break when Matthew Roehl spun in turn four to bring out the fifth and final caution flag.

Following a single-file restart, Schmidt drove hard along the low groove to slip underneath Odekirk in turn four on lap 25 and held on over the final circuit to earn his fifth career PDTR A-main victory.

Odekirk placed second, Frank wound up third, Bauer finished fourth and seventh starter Gary Glander of Sheboygan Falls rounded out the top five.

Charlie Bourgeois was victorious in the special 12-lap Vintage Modified A main.

Adam Miller of Plymouth captured the 15-lap 360 Sprint Car B main.

As a special tribute to Dave Deicher, who served as a flagman at The Plymouth Dirt Track from 1989 through 2020 and passed away in May 2021, several former flagmen at The Plymouth Dirt Track were on hand during a special pre-race ceremony to honor Deicher and to share in trading off flagging duties for heat race action.

Among the former and current Plymouth flagmen on hand in Deicher’s memory were Bill Krueger, Larry Palm, Roger Mueller, Eric Mueller, Bill Lubach and Steve Crass.

After the racing program, PDTR and the Deicher family sponsored a post-race party featuring free pizza and beer for those in attendance.

ADAM KEKICH'S 1ST CAREER SHARON WIN SATURDAY NIGHT MAKES HIM THE 8TH DIFFERENT "410" SPRINT WINNER IN 8 RACES THIS YEAR; CHRIS MCGUIRE BREAKS INTO VICTORY LANE IN STOCKS; GARRETT KRUMMERT REPEATS IN RUSH MODS; WILL THOMAS NOW 3-FOR-4 IN ECONO MODS

By Mike Leone

July 24, 2021

(Hartford, OH)…After two straight rain outs at Sharon Speedway, Mother Nature tried to make it three-in-a-row with nearly an hour of rain early Saturday afternoon, but track management persevered and completed the show before rain arrived again later at night. A lightning fast red clay surface provided intense action and some record breaking speeds. Celebrating in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane were Adam Kekich-Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars, Chris McGuire-Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, Garrett Krummert-HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and Will Thomas III-Whelen Econo Mods. Ninety-one cars were in the pit area for the four-division program on Hovis Auto & Truck Supply and C&R Tire Night.

On a surface suited to his liking, sixth starting Adam Kekich tracked down race long leader Carl Bowser and made the winning pass on lap 26 and pulled away over the final laps of the feature to garner a popular first career Sharon win worth $3,000. Kekich became the eighth different "410" Sprint Car winner in eight races this year and just as impressive the fifth driver to win his first career Sharon race! The caution-free 30-lap Hovis Auto & Truck Supply feature was timed in a blistering 7:36.748.

"First off I have to thank God- he's been so good to us," expressed the 28-year-old Hermitage, Pa. racer. "I have to dedicate this to my wife and her family as her grandmother passed away literally a couple hours ago. We've been struggling here on a slick surface; there's guys that like it, but we don't. I've been trying so hard. Dave Blaney has been helping me so much. It's actually his setup that's in this. If it wasn't for him we wouldn't be this good. He's so smart, and so good helping me through this. We talk two to three times per week. This one is so super special. I grew up here and started racing Sprint Cars here. I think we led five features and had motor issues every single time. The monkey is off my back. We were so fast. When I passed (Brandon) Matus I didn't realize Bowser and (A.J.) Flick were right there then realized we might have something for them. I smacked the wall and thought it was over, but said screw it we're going to keep on running."

Bowser used the outside to jump into the lead past Brandon Matus with A.J. Flick passing George Hobaugh for fourth as Kekich moved into the top five on the opening lap. Flick drove by Matus for second on lap two and then a great race developed for third with Matus trying to fend off George Hobaugh and Kekich. Bowser quickly caught lapped traffic on lap five and was able to maintain his lead. Kekich moved into fourth on lap 11 past Hobaugh as the duo tried to work past the lapped car of George Englert.

Back up front, fourth starting Flick began to chew into Bowser's lead on lap 12 and by lap 16 was on the leader's tail tank. Flick pulled alongside Bowser on lap 17 and 18 and their battle allowed Matus and Kekich to close in making it a four-car race for the lead. Kekich was able to work past Matus on lap 19 as the laps continued to tick off caution-free.

Bowser, Flick, and Kekich pulled away and really went at it now keeping the fans on the edge of their seats. Kekich powered around Flick off turn four to take second on lap 24 and then went after Bowser. Like Kekich, Bowser was also looking for his first career Sharon win. Kekich made his winning move on lap 26 with a slider in turn two. Once in front, Kekich pulled away to take the checkered flag first by 2.241 seconds in the Mike Kekich-owned, McCandless Ford/Sunburst Environmental/Jones Performance/Hermitage Agway/Snizek Cabinets/Tim's Detailing/Homer Sanitary/Sheep Dog Project-sponsored #5K.

Flick, who won $2,500 last Sunday night at Tri-City Raceway Park and $3,000 on Friday night at Thunder Mountain Speedway, was able to get by Bowser on lap 27 to secure the runner-up spot. Bowser dropped to a disappointing third after leading the first 25 laps. Matus was fourth over Hobaugh. Fifteen-year-old Leyton Wagner went ninth to sixth over Bob Felmlee, Michael Bauer, "410" rookie David Kalb, Jr., and Darren Pifer. Bauer set fast time overall in qualifying with a lap of 13.309. Bowser and Pifer won the heat races.

2018 Pro Stock Champion, Chris McGuire, returned to prominence on Saturday night capturing his first win at the track in more than two years. Like Kekich, McGuire's run to the front started from sixth as he was able to take the lead on lap six and survived three restarts fending off the challenges of 2019 champion Curt J. Bish to capture the 20-lap Gibson Insurance Agency feature worth $700.

"Sharon provides a phenomenal surface every time we come here," stated the 30-year-old Erie, Pa. racer. "It's hands down the best track in the tri-state area. The car was alright, but it was a little soft on the right front tire. I was glad the outside came in. I had a wicked push in (turn) three so I really had to ease it in, but (turns) one and two I could really make good time."

While in the end it was 2018 and 2019 champions McGuire and Bish battling for the win, at the start it was 2016 and 2017 champion Paul Davis taking the early lead from pole-sitter Matt Bernard with McGuire already halfway to the front after the opening lap. Following a stoppage for a hard hit by Tyler Kubic, McGuire passed Bernard for second on lap three with Jason Jones following in third. Jones' strong run ended when he went up in smoke with five laps scored.

When green replaced yellow on lap six, McGuire made the winning pass putting a slider on the 61-year-old Davis in turn four. McGuire raced out to a huge advantage by the halfway point, while 12th starting Bish made his way to second on lap 11 past Davis. Three cautions between laps 12-14 gave Bish a shot alongside McGuire for the double file restarts, but McGuire wasn't to be denied. The final six laps went green-to-checkered and McGuire's fourth career Sharon win, but first since June 18, 2019 came by a comfortable 4.136 seconds in his Welders Supply/Tobber Racing/Ed's Drywall-sponsored #63.

Davis was third as ninth starting Jason Johns worked his way to fourth at the finish. Tenth starting Larry Kugel nosed out 14th starting Brian Carothers for fifth. Completing the top 10 were Josh Seippel, Jamie Duncan, Jamie Scharba, and Bernard. Heat winners over the 24-car field were Jordan Perkins, Jones, and Chris Schneider, who all three suffered mechanical failures in the feature.

Garrett Krummert emerged victorious over Justin Shea and Chas Wolbert in a wild 20-lap HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modified feature. Krummert passed Shea on lap 16 and held him and Wolbert off for his second win of the year worth $500, which came over a season high 27-car field.

"That was a good race," stated the 33-year-old West Middlesex, Pa. resident. "I think Justin and Chas were a lot better than me, but they were too worried about blocking each other. They had to slow down so it kind of left the top open for me to get by. The race track was awesome; I wish they would do it like this every week."

An invert 0 put Jacob Jordan and Wolbert on the front row with Shea and Wolbert lined up in row two. A wild opening lap saw Shea, Jordan, and Wolbert go three-wide in turns one and two; Jordan got into Wolbert as Wolbert fell out of the top five as fifth starting Jordan Ehrenberg was the benefactor moving into second. Krummert took third from Jordan on lap three with Wolbert following in fourth one lap later.

After a caution for Jordan with four laps scored, Krummert and Wolbert passed Ehrenberg for second and third. Wolbert and Krummert then went at it for second battling side-by-side with Wolbert making the pass for runner-up on lap 12 before a trio of cautions slowed action between laps 12-13. When racing resumed on lap 14, Krummert retook second before a spin by rookie Cameron McFadden with 14 laps scored.

That would be the final stoppage, which set the stage for a wild final six laps between Shea, Krummert, and Wolbert. Krummert and Shea battled side-by-side on lap 16 with Krummert making the winning pass. Krummert was able to fend Shea and Wolbert off to take the checkered flag first by 0.512 seconds in the MD Landscaping/Jerry Schaffer Racing/Turn 4 Toilets-sponsored #10s. For Krummert, it was his eighth career RUSH Sportsman Modified win at Sharon to go along with one Big-Block Modified victory.

Shea crossed the finish line in second, but was disqualified for a technical infraction. Wolbert was then credited with second. Tony Tatgenhorst charged from 14th to third. Brandon Ritchey went 10th to fourth. Rob Kristyak was fifth after starting 18th. Kyle Martell went 19th to sixth. Jacob Wolfe, Ehrenberg, Ayden Cipriano, and Kole Holden completed the top 10. Heat winners were Jordan, Wolbert, and Shea, while Martell captured the last chance B main.

After an early battle between brothers Jeremy and Josh Double, Will Thomas III inherited the lead on lap 13 after terminal issues for Jeremy Double and went on for the 20-lap Whelen Econo Mod victory. Thomas became the third winner of the night to start from the sixth spot, and became the track's leading feature winner of 2021 despite running just four races.

"I live 10 minutes from here and we got a lot of rain," explained the 45-year-old Sharpsville, Pa. driver. "I give the staff a lot of credit for getting the show in. This isn't a typical Sharon Speedway, and I like the typical Sharon Speedway. There was a lot of traction and a lot of bite. We weren't as good as what we needed to be tonight. I feel really, really bad for Jeremy Double; he works really hard on that car. He was good. I don't know if we would have gotten him or not. He got a good restart and was running the top really well, but I was too tight to do that. I'm just fortunate to be here, but now we'll have to start 12th."

In his first race in four years, Josh Double took off in the early lead, while Jeremy Double went fourth to second on the opening lap. Following a caution for an eight-car pileup in turn two, Jeremy drove around Josh to lead lap two. Thomas was halfway to front on lap five when he passed Mitchell Wright for third. Jeremy pulled away from Josh on lap seven, but a caution for Rick Wilson, Jr. bunched up the field with nine laps scored.

When racing resumed, Thomas passed Josh Double for second and went after brother Jeremy. The two raced side-by-side for the lead on laps 11 and 12; however, Jeremy went up in smoke to bring out the caution with 12 laps scored and handed the lead to Thomas with Josh Double back to second.

After six cautions in the first 12 laps, the final eight circuits went green-to-checkered with Thomas taking the victory in his Hallman Originals/Colonial Metal Products/Colonial Slitting Industries/Motorstate Distributing/955 Automotive-sponsored #9 by 1.443 seconds over Jeremy Double. The victory was Thomas' 22nd overall in his career at Sharon. Mitchell Wright spun in turn four on the final lap running third, which moved Scott Burk to a career best third. Rookie Jordan Simmons was fourth ahead of Gary Olson. Burk, Jeremy Double, and Wright won the heat races. Jeremy Double broke the track record three time in his heat race setting a new standard with a 17.705.

Coming up on next Saturday (July 31) will be a "Steel Valley Thunder" program featuring the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply UMP Modifieds in a $1,000 to-win event plus the RUSH Sportsman Modified Touring Series for their "Manufacturers Night", Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars, and the Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks.

Linder Scores $10,000 Summer Nationals Win

7/24/21

Alger, WA – The 2021 Bob’s Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals Main Event was one for the ages, with Garen Linder taking the lead on a late race restart to score the biggest win of his career, a $10,000 victory in the 40 lap A Main event.

Chase Goetz took the initial lead with Linder close on his heels in the early portion of the main event. A lap three flip by Luke Didiuk caused an open red flag, giving driver’s a chance to top off their fuel load and make handling adjustments. Under the next green flag run, Goetz moved into slower traffic with Linder staying close, never letting him more than about one lapped car ahead of him. A caution on the completion of lap 17 brought Linder right behind Goetz again, and on the restart, Garen executed a perfect slidejob in turns one and two to take the top spot. Now it was Goetz’ turn to chase Linder into traffic, and the pair would work hard in and through the lapped cars in an extended green flag run. With heavy traffic looming ahead, Linder jumped the cushion in turn three, letting Goetz past him to complete the 38th lap. Before lap 39 could clip off, the race went yellow for a spinning Ashleigh Johnson, setting up a green-white-checkered restart with Linder right on Chase’s tail. In what looked like a carbon copy of the lap eighteen restart, Linder again bomber to the bottom of turn one and executed another perfect slidejob to take the lead from Goetz at the exit of turn two. With only a lap and half left, Goetz dug in and tried to rally back, but the night belonged to Linder who won his first Skagit Speedway main event, his first Summer Nationals title and the biggest paycheck of his career. Goetz would settle for second after winning the opening night, and Cam Smith rounded out the podium. In earlier action on the night, Jesse Schlotfeldt set fast time and the heat winners were Tyler Thompson, Bailey Sucich and Didiuk.

It was a textbook move from Nick Evans that secured his victory in the NW Focus Midget main event. Swinging wide and opening his entrance up in turn one, Evans found a lane right underneath Alden Ostrom and scooted past him coming off the bottom of turn two to make what was the race winning pass on lap 11 en route to the win. Ostrom would roll to a strong second while Michael Vollbrecht came home third. Evans also set fast time. Garrett Thomas, Travis Jacobson and Jared Peterson took the heat race wins.

The finals of the Outlaw Tuner Nationals ran Saturday night. Ayuka Carlson was out front looking for her first win for most of the race, while being hounded by Roger Burt. Burt took the lead for one fleeting lap, the 15th, before Carlson came back by him to reclaim the lead on lap 16. All the while, Howard Vos was finding his rhythm in the high groove, and coming to the white flag, Vos let it all hang out, pushing for one final shot to get into the top spot. Around the top of the track, Vos dug in, inching past both Burt and Carlson, then out drag racing Ayuka to the final flag by a short margin for the win. Carlson and Burt rounded out the podium, with the heats being won by Brian Michelson and Mike Macpherson.

Breaking out the fastest time in Hot Laps, Kory Schudy would be on a mission all event by notching a heat race victory along with Xavier Doney and Wesley Smith. Doney would use the POWRi Passing Points scale to earn the night's High Point Award and pole starting spot for the twenty-five-lap main event.

Pacing the pack of twenty-five hungry Lucas Oil POWRi WAR Sprint League competitors to the initial green flag start, the duo of Doney and Smith would battle into the first corner for the lead with Wesley Smith grabbing the preferred position early. With Smith leading, Doney would mount a charge to the front grabbing the lead until a mid-race caution would bunch the field back together.

Restarting third, Schudy would strike using an inside-line to perfection to pass the leading Doney who was ripping the lip of the multi-groove racing surface. Leading the rest of the laps until the double checkered flag would witness Kory Schudy claim his third POWRi WAR win of the season and fifth career series victory.

“It’s so much fun, this car is really dialed in right now and I can’t thank this team enough. Everyone on this team is what puts us in victory lane, we’re just trying to win races and this team makes my job easier”, said Kory Schudy in a celebratory victory lane.

Holding on to match his career-best finish would find series Rookie of the Year leader Xavier Doney wheeling his way to finish runner-up with Zach Daum in the mix all event earning a podium placing. Exceptional three-to-four-wide racing would break out throughout the pack with Riley Kreisel placing fourth for the second night in a row as Jack Wagner would advance eight positions to round out the Lake Ozark Speedway top-five finishers for the POWRi WAR Sprint League.

Conley holds off Jacobs for Attica 410 win; Weaver earns 5th 305 victory; Bores holds off Markham for late model win

Friday, July 23, 2021

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Cale Conley held off Trey Jacobs to score his second career 410 sprint car win at Attica Raceway Park Friday, July 23 on Baumann Auto Group/NAPA Auto Parts/Advanced Drainage Systems Night. Conley’s margin of victory was only .084 seconds over current Attica point leader Jacobs.

Conley, from Vienna, West Virginia, led all 30 laps of the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprint A-main, but Jacobs made things very entertaining the final six laps. The victory was worth $4,000 thanks to Spanky’s Pizza of Carey, Ohio.

“I saw him coming. That was way too close of a victory to be comfortable about. I’m still a little bit puckered up after that. I was up here for that front row challenge and I knew I wanted to start out front here. There’s too many good cars here. I said if anyone could start at the back and come up front it would be that 3J car of Jacobs and sure enough there he was at the end. I’m really happy to hold him off because he’s pretty solid on the bottom and the top was getting pretty thin. The car was great thanks to Brian and Stacie Kemenah…this thing was really fun to drive. I’m grateful to be here,” said Conley beside his Ravici Racing/The PM Company/Brilex LLC/Precision Garage Door backed #3c.

With his third place finish Craig Mintz gained valuable points on All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group point leader DJ Foos who charged from 14th to a sixth place finish.

When leader Rusty Schlenk jumped the cushion in turn four and slammed into the front stretch wall Mike Bores was there to take advantage and drove to his sixth career Dirt Nerds Podcast/Propane.com UMP Late Model win at Attica. It wasn’t easy for Bores as former track champions Ryan Markham, Devin Shiels and Matt Irey pressured Bores the final 14 laps.

“You can’t mess around with them (lapped cars too much) because you don’t know where that second place guy is. I knew Markham was coming…someone was coming from up top. I just had to protect the middle…the race track was good tonight,” said Bores beside his Underground Utilities Inc./AccuForce/Burns Electric/Steins Honey/Yetter Dun Boom Mowing/Cam-Tech backed #94.

Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver, defending and five time Attica 305 champion, took the lead of the 25 lap Fremont Fence 305 Sprint A-main on lap 13, survived a caution with four laps to go and drove to his fifth win of the season. It was the 61st of his career in the division and 64th overall Attica win (three 410 victories) to lead all drivers in career wins in the history of Attica Raceway Park.

“That wasn’t fun….that was a workout. I’ve got the identical set-up…I put the same set-up on it when we went to Portsmouth, Atomic, Wayne County. I know what the car’s going to do. It might not win all the time but it’s comfortable. I have to thank Bob Hampshire for one hell of a motor, Kenny Greber kind of come on board and helped me a little bit with some parts, Pam and Steve Brown of B&B Drain Services, M&L Excavating and Dave Rice,” said Weaver.

Weaver, the 2020 NAPA Auto Parts of Bryan 305 AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales champion, padded his lead in the AFCS points with the victory.

Prior to the 410 A-main, Rich Farmer of NAPA Auto Parts offered a $10,000 to pole-sitter Chris Andrews to go to the tail and come back and win. Andrews unfortunately crashed out of the A-main on lap 13.

So the front row of the feature saw Conley and Ricky Peterson charge to the green with Conley gaining the advantage as Peterson got locked in a tremendous battle with Stuart Brubaker for second while Jacobs and Craig Mintz stayed within striking distance. A caution for debris on lap six wiped out a substantial lead for Conley as Brubaker had moved into second over Peterson, Jacobs, Mintz and Cole Macedo.

A couple of cautions prior to the half-way point kept the field close, wiping out big leads for Conley while Brubaker, Peterson and Jacobs battled extremely hard for second. With eight laps to go Conley’s lead has dissipated as Brubaker, Jacobs and Peterson closed. Unfortunately for Peterson his great run came to an end when he slammed into the front stretch wall with just six laps to go.

On the restart Conley took off but in a few laps Jacobs, utilizing the low line, closed and was racing inside the leader when a caution flew with just three laps remaining. Again Conley got an excellent restart on the high side of the track but Jacobs closed quickly on the bottom and as they charged to the checkers Jacobs was beside Conley who took the very close win. Mintz, Brubaker and Macedo rounded out the top five.

Schlenk jumped into the early lead of the late model A-main with Shiels, Bores, Markham, Larry Bellman and Irey in pursuit. While Schlenk pulled away the battle for second heated up with Bores taking the spot on lap four only to see Shiels regain the position on lap eight with Bores back into second a lap later. Schlenk slipped off the cushion exiting turn four on lap 10 and hit the front stretch wall, ending his night and handing the lead to Bores.

Bores pulled away on the restart as Shiels, Irey and Markham traded positions lap after lap. With nine circuits remaining, Markham had caught Bores and blasting away at the cushion drove side by side with the leader. The high line in turn two was tricky and a couple of minor bobbles allowed Bores to pull away slightly. The remaining five laps saw Markham, Shiels and Irey swap positions nearly each corner.

On the last lap Bores had to be conservative with a lapped car and Markham gave one final try to his outside only to fall short. Bores scored the victory with Markham, Shiels, Irey and Bellman rounding out the top five.

Steve Rando grabbed the early lead of the 305 A-main over Kyle Peters, Seth Schneider, Logan Riehl and Weaver. Rando built a big lead but a couple of cautions early on kept he field close as Schneider took second on lap four with Weaver into third. Weaver grabbed second on lap eight and immediately closed on Rando, driving under him to take the lead on lap 13.

Weaver pulled away steadily as Rando ran unchallenged in second while Schneider, Riehl and Jamie Miller battled for third. A final caution with four laps to go gave Rando one final chance but Weaver was too strong and drove to the win with Miller, Schneider and Matt Foos rounding out the top five.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, July 30 with the 410 sprints, late models and 305 sprints in action.

Goetz Wins Opening Night of Bob’s Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals

7/23/21

Alger, WA – Night one of the 2021 Bob’s Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals saw Chase Goetz take his second victory of the year in 360 competition at the track and lock himself into the front few rows of tomorrow’s $10,000 to win feature, with Cam Smith, Garen Linder and Trey Starks joining him as lock ins.

Linder opened the 25 lap 360 main by leading the first 12 laps with Goetz keeping him in close contact. As the pair entered slower traffic, Goetz made his move, executing a perfect slidejob in turn two to take the lead on lap thirteen. While Goetz would assert his lead, the race for second got wild, with Linder first holding the spot before Trey Starks imitated the Kamikaze Kid and threw a huge slider on him on turn three of lap 14. The pair made contact but somehow managed to keep going, with Linder losing second to Cam Smith and Starks sliding back to sixth. Smith would pursue Goetz, but Chase kept up his torrid pace and collected the win in his family owned car ahead of Smith, Linder and Starks who managed to rally back up the field. Those four lock into the front few rows of tomorrow’s nights $10,000 finale’. Linder, Colton Heath and Max Mittry won the heat races with Smith setting quick time.

Alex Peck took his second win at Skagit Speedway in the NW Focus Midgets. Similar to his first win on June 12th, Peck led all twenty five laps of the main event, expertly moving through lapped traffic to hold off Nick Evans and Jared Peterson for the win. Peck also set quick time. Heat winners were Michael Vollbrecht, Jeff Westergard and Alden Ostrom.

Opening night of the 2021 Tuner Nationals went to Howard Vos. The veteran racer took over the lead on lap five and rode through the middle of the track to go on to the win ahead of Roger Burt and Mike Macpherson. Burt grabbed a heat race win as did Clint Meins.

Ayrton Gennetten Nabs $2,000 Sprint Invaders Feature at East Moline!

(Bill W) East Moline, IL, July 21, 2021 – Ayrton Gennetten captured his third career win with the Sprint Invaders Wednesday night at the East Moline Speedway in East Moline, Iowa during the Rock Island County Fair. The native of Gravois Mills, Missouri earned $2,000 for his victory aboard the Scott Bonar/Midland Performance #50.

After winning the Shottenkirk Automotive Shake-up Dash, Gennetten drew the pole for the 25-lap main event. Before a lap was completed, however, two incidents slowed things. Kaley Gharst suffered a mechanical breakdown stemming from a heat race incident in which he was collected by the machine of Rob Kubli, who had broken an axle. Gharst retired at that point.

Blaine Jamison was cruising on the cushion in one and two at the next try at green, when he contacted the right rear tire of another car and flipped hard in turn two. He was not seriously injured. Braydn Greubel also tipped over at the same time, but was not hurt. Josh Higday also exited.

Once the green flew, it flew for good, as all 25 laps went without incident. Gennetten shot out to his lead over Jonathan Cornell, Austin McCarl, Chris Martin and Tanner Gebhardt. He was into lapped traffic by the sixth circuit.

McCarl started gaining on Cornell and passed him on the low side in lapped traffic at the halfway point for the runner-up position. Gennetten and McCarl used the highest stretches of the high-banked quarter-mile to pull away from the field. Several times, both smacked the turn one and two wall.

McCarl closed late on Gennetten, but ran out of time, and settled for second. Cornell was third, ahead of Martin and Garret Williamson from row six. Josh Schneiderman, Gebhardt, Cody Wehrle, Colton Fisher and Kurt Mueller rounded out the top ten. Higday, Cornell and Martin were heat winners.

“I’ve been racing a lot with the Outlaws, and at a lot of different tracks night in and night out,” said Gennetten in Victory Lane. “It kind of helps me there, being able to adapt. This track reminds me of Double X (Speedway near California, Missouri). It’s where I started, and where I got my first win. It was super narrow in one and two, and on the wall. I love it like that. I didn’t know how big a lead I had, and the lapped cars were running different lines. I was trying to be patient, but set a good pace. I saw Austin down there with a slider, and I’m glad we didn’t have another lap. I wanted to move around some, but not too much. The momentum was the key to get the win.”

“I kind of felt like we needed more traffic to get Gennetten to move around,” said the second place McCarl. “He did a good job. Another good job by everyone here on the (Jimmy Davies) #99 car. We’re chipping away at a win here, and we’re slowly getting better. I needed (Gennetten) to make a mistake late there, and I was trying not to make them. He did a good job, and I felt we did everything we could do with what we had there at the end.”

“We have nothing to hang our heads about,” said Cornell. “I wish we could have been there with Austin and Ayrton at the end. The bottom was working for us early. I should have been a little more aggressive with the lapped cars. I got conservative and Austin got by me. I tried going up high. I cheated the cushion for a couple of laps and those guys just checked out. We’re happy with a podium finish tonight to go with our win last time.”

The next event for the Sprint Invaders will be Wednesday, July 21 at the Dubuque Speedway in Dubuque, Iowa. For more information on the Sprint Invaders, visit www.SprintInvaders.com or look us up on Facebook.

Colby Copeland Sweeps Speedweek Championship Weekend At CGS; Wins Second Career Series Title

Cottage Grove, Oregon- All roads came to a head at Cottage Grove Speedway on Saturday, July 17th. The historic -mile clay oval hosted the fifth and final round of Speedweek Northwest 2021. Twenty-eight teams and drivers were in attendance for the event representing the American states of Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, and the Canadian province of British Columbia.

Trey Starks, from Puyallup, Washington, was the pacesetter once green flag racing commenced. Starks would eventually catch some extremely thick lapped traffic in which he would battle with several challengers trying to overtake him.

On lap ten, Colby Copeland was the one to eventually get around Trey Starks to become the new leader of the race. However, it was no waltz through the garden as Copeland had to deal with heavy traffic and four cautions. Despite the cautions and restarts, Colby managed to keep all contenders in check.

The Roseville, California racer collected his third win of the week and his second straight. Colby Copeland now has six career Speedweek Northwest feature triumphs for car owners Jim and Annette Van Lare. Additionally, Copeland won his second Speedweek title, the fourth driver to win it more than once, and ties Brent Kaeding third on the championship list.

Justyn Cox, from West Sacramento, California, and driving the Doug and Kathy Rutz owned entry, ended the race second with third going to Harrisburg’s Tyler Thompson. Snohomish, Washington native Chase Goetz, and Garen Linder of Central Point were fourth and fifth in the finishing order. The Rocket Engines Hard Charger Award winner was Tanner Holmes from Jacksonville.

Justyn Cox was the quickest qualifier in time trials. Heat race winners included Greg Hamilton of Burlington, Washington, Chico, California chauffeur Brad Bumgarner, Tanner Holmes, and Chase Madjic of Redding, California. Spirit Lake, Idaho teenager James Setters scored the victory in the consolation feature.

The staff at the Western Sprint Tour want to thank all the drivers, teams, and fans that made Speedweek Northwest 2021 such a wonderful time. For more information on upcoming races, check out the Western Sprint Tour page on Facebook.

Pirtek Renegades

New Richmond, WI, July 17, 2021 by: Terry Lenhertz

After a one week hiatus, the Pirtek Renegades returned to Cedar Lake Speedway on Saturday with Cam Schafer racing into the record books. Seventeen drivers strapped in to do battle Saturday with heat race wins going to Jake Kouba and Schafer, while Nick DaRonco racked up the most passing points charging up from eighth to third in his qualifier.

The 25-lap main event saw Ryan Buck and DaRonco on the front row and it was the #8 hotrod of DaRonco showing the way early. A serious pile-up on lap four saw Buck and Bryan Roach both rolling their mounts with Blake Anderson and Brad Peterson also sustaining heavy damage. All drivers involved escaped serious injury but none of the four were able to continue. Back under green it was still DaRonco at the point being chased by Mike Mueller and Cam Schafer. DaRonco was working the cushion while Mueller was again masterful working the catfish line. By lap ten, Schafer had charged around the high/low battle between DaRonco and Mueller and into the lead. The battle for fourth was intense all race long with Scott Brandt, Jon Lewerer and Jake Kouba slicing and dicing for the duration, and the battle between Mueller and DaRonco raged on for the entire race as well. At the double checkers it was Schafer snaring his ninth Pirtek win of the summer and tenth overall courtesy of his Mid-American Renegade win at Dodge County Speedway on Thursday. Mueller crossed the line second ahead of Brandt, DaRonco, Kouba and Lewerer. The win moved Schafer into a tie with Brooke Tatnell for the most career Pirtek feature wins with 36. Coupled with his two Mid-American Renegade wins, Schafer’s 38 Renegade feature victories stands alone at the summit of Renegade racing.

In other Renegade racing action this weekend, Cam Schafer scored the win at Dodge County on Thursday and Scott Brandt brought home checkers on Friday at Chateau in Mid-American Renegade action. At the Northern Renegades’ Rene Hughes Tribute race in Hibbing, Ken Hron doubled up, winning both the winged and traditional features. And Adam Sobolik nabbed his fifth Western Renegade feature win on the season at Devils Lake. The Pirtek Renegades next action is Saturday, July 24, back at the high-banks of Cedar Lake Speedway.

 

 

Taylor Velasquez Sweeps Weekend with United Rebel Sprint Series at Dodge City Raceway Park

DODGE CITY, Kansas (July 18, 2021) – Drive to Zero POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series competitors took to the 3/8-mile semi-banked clay oval of Dodge City Raceway Park on Friday and Saturday. A full field of competition was in attendance both nights, but it was Taylor Velasquez dominating the weekend and capturing both wins.

On Friday, Luke Cranston and Taylor Velasquez set the pace for the night’s 25-lap feature event. Cranston took off with the early race lead while Velasquez and Jordan Knight battled for the runner-up position. Velasquez prevailed, claiming the second spot before challenging Cranston for the lead. On lap six, Velasquez made a move, took the lead, and never looked back.

On lap eight, Huish challenged Knight to take over third before then hunting down Cranston to then move into second. Velasquez navigated lapped traffic to perfection, putting some distance between himself and Huish. Just past the halfway point, series points leader, Ty Williams, continued his march forward from eleventh to get past Knight and Huish to take over the second spot. Velasquez went on to win by nearly 13.5-seconds. Ty Williams and Jeremy Huish completed the podium, while Jordan Knight and Koby Walters rounded out the top five finishers.

On Saturday, it was Taylor Velasquez and Jeremy Huish leading the field to the green for 25 laps. Velasquez jumped to the early lead with Huish, Luke Cranston, and Zach Blurton trailing. A restart on lap two saw Ty Williams navigate past Blurton for fourth. Huish remained within reasonable distance of Velasquez for the race lead.

With six laps remaining, Huish experienced an issue allowing Cranston to take over second and Williams into third. Williams used the remaining five laps to gain ground on Cranston and take over second with a last-lap pass. Velasquez captured his second victory of the weekend with the United Rebel Sprint Series with Williams and Cranston completing the podium. Zach Blurton and JD Johnson rounded out the top-five finishers on Saturday.

Up next for the Rebels will be this Friday night at US 36 Raceway in Cameron, MO and Saturday at Bethany Speedway in Bethany, MO.

Justin Wells Victorious in 3rd Annual Jason Russell Memorial Race

Sunday night brought a different type of thunder to Double X Speedway in California, MO. The track hosted the 3rd annual Jason Russell Memorial Race which featured a $2502 winner's share in the Late Model division. The quality of cars and drivers in the house was impressive and the racing was top notch. Two heat races set the lineup for the 22 lap feature event. Heat race winners Todd McCoin and "The Outlaw", Mike Striegel lined up side by side on the front row for the main event. With the drop of the green flag McCoin was motor into the lead with second row starter Justin Wells following him past Striegel into second. The field would settle in with McCoin setting the pace and Wells staying within striking distance. As the laps clicked by the lead duo would negotiate lapped traffic with McCoin maintaining the point and Wells making his presence known every lap or so. As the white flag was waving Wells was able to exit turn four on the low side of the leaders McCoin and complete the pass as the duo raced through turns 1 & 2. Exiting 2 Wells would clear McCoin and take the victory in the feature. Following Wells and McCoin over the stripe were Mike Striegel in third, Justin Russell in fourth and Chris Hawkins would come home in fifth. Rick Brown, Dennis Cook and Steve Potter would complete the field. Thanks to the Russell family and all of the businesses and friends that allowed this event to come to Double X this year to honor Jason's memory.

The Super Stock class boasted a sign in of 17 cars for the evening of competition. Double X faithful Joe Miller of Centertown returned to the track after having to do extensive repairs from an early season crash and he claimed the victory in the second heat race in the division. Former weekly competitor Ted Welschmeyer claimed the first heat and veteran Steve Beach was victorious in heat three. This set the feature lineup. Welschmeyer on the pole and Miller on the outside of row 1. At the drop of the green Miller used the high groove to take the lead over the fleet 21W of Welschmeyer. At one point Miller had opened up a 5 car length lead over second place Welschmeyer, but it was short lived as the 21W moved to the low line in the turns to pull up to the rear bumper of Miller's 409. As the top two were waging battle, the action was heating up behind them also as Steve Beach, Darren Phillips and 9th starting John Clancy Jr were waging a battle of their own. A series of yellow flags in the closing laps shuffled the rear half of the field. Through all of the restarts Miller was able to hold off Welschmeyer to claim the victory. Following these two under the checkers was Clancy in third, Beach in fourth and Chad Eickelberry in fifth. Robin Sowers would run sixth, Jonnie Price seventh, Shayne Healea was eighth, Jody Romig ninth and Russell Beach tenth.

The Winged Sprint Cars were the final feature event on the card. As a result of their heat race wins, Broc Elliott and Jack Wagner brought the field to the green flag. Elliott would shoot to the lead with fourth starting Korey Bales moving past Wagner into second. Elliott was running consistent laps and holding the point. Bales was also turning very consistent laps and gaining on the leader. As these two were waging battle there was a train with a head of steam rolling up from the ninth starting place. Tyler Blank moved into third with about ten laps to go and closed on the lead duo with about five to go. After dispatching Bales, Blank pulled to the rear of Elliott's #00 sprinter. Broc Elliott did what he could to protect the high line that he knew Blank can run so well. On lap 23 Elliott went into turn 1 with Blank in tow, as the leaders reached turn 2 Blank turned underneath Elliott and made the winning pass as they reached the back straightaway. Following Blank in first, Elliott in second, Korey Bales would complete his strong run in third, Jack Wagner was fourth and Chris Morgan would come from tailback to fifth at the finish.

Only two scheduled weeks remain in the 2021 version of Sunday Night Thunder at Double X Speedway. Next Sunday night in the "Racing Back to School" Backpack giveaway hosted by Tyler Utz Family Racing and friends. Backpacks with school supplies will be given away to students from the area at the track that night. Sunday August 1st will be another night for the kids with the rescheduled "Race for Riley" Memoril Race. Many giveaways for the kids in attendance will be on tap. Be sure to follow our Facebook page for updates.

Henderson, Pruett and Abbas Victorious During Hall of Fame Night Presented by Spartan ER at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (July 18, 2021) - Justin Henderson, Jim Pruett and Casey Abbas produced feature triumphs on Sunday evening at Huset's Speedway, which hosted Hall of Fame Night presented by Spartan ER.

It marked Henderson's fourth victory - tied for the most at the track - of the season while Pruett and Abbas both earned their first win of the year.

The program also recognized Rick Dump, Mike Haugan, Jim Lindberg, John Miller and Junior Brunick, who were inducted into the Huset's Speedway Hall of Fame during intermission.

Tyler Drueke led the first six laps of the Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig feature before Lynton Jeffrey took the lead on Lap 7. However, the race was halted with a red flag on Lap 10 as Jeffrey and Mark Dobmeier collided on the backstretch while battling for the lead.

Drueke inherited the lead, but Henderson, who had advanced from sixth to second, used the bottom in turn two to rocket into first place. A caution on Lap 15 for a spin by second-running Austin McCarl bunched the field together before the final 11 laps went non-stop. Henderson reached traffic with four laps to go, but it didn't slow him as he won by 2.428 seconds.

"I think we're just living in the moment, trying to relish every moment," he said. "Lady Luck has been a good friend and she's been super, super kind. I am very happy and very, very grateful.

"Tonight I tried something different. I used my head quite a bit to realize I didn't need to charge it so hard. I think really that's what won us the race. It was technical, but really a brawnsy type of race as well. You gotta go hard. Be a He-Man when you can."

Brooke Tatnell passed Drueke for the runner-up position with two laps remaining.

"We got a few gimmies there," Tatnell said. "You have those nights when you have those gimmees and you have those nights when you have the lose-ies. We just have to figure out what to do to beat the No. 7 car. He's kicking everyone's butts right now."

Drueke's third-place result was his best finish of the season at Huset's Speedway.

"That is far and away above expectations," he said. "I knew this was going to be a tough deal to go against when we started the year. I need more laps. I need more experience. One thing I've learned in these 410s, they are crazy. They are radical. You just try and hustle the thing. I don't think I breathed for about 25 minutes there."

Jody Rosenboom finished fourth and Jack Dover earned his fifth top five of the season at the track.

Jeffrey set quick time during qualifying before Drueke, Henderson and Rosenboom captured heat race triumphs.

Pruett hit the bottom lane to perfection as he led all but the first two laps to score not only his first Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks victory of the season, but his first career triumph at Huset's Speedway as well.

"Finally," he said while adding an exhale in Victory Lane. "I wanted it so bad. It's tougher than hell out there. I love it. I appreciate it. Now I can be done with this sport. Thank you."

Billy Prouty led the first two circuits before Pruett claimed the top spot. Meanwhile points leader Cory Yeigh made a charge toward the front, advancing into the top five on Lap 6, into third place on Lap 11 and into the runner-up position for good on Lap 16. Yeigh battled for the point in the closing laps, but Pruett was effective on the bottom to win by 0.605 seconds.

Tim Dann placed third with Brandon Ferguson hustling from 13th to fourth. Zach Olivier rounded out the top five.

Yeigh and Pruett each picked up a heat race victory.

Abbas led the second half of the 20-lap Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series main event to score his sixth career win in the division and first since July 2016 at Huset's Speedway.

"I feel a little bit older than I did back then," he quipped.

Tim Rustad led the first two laps before Javen Ostermann took the lead on Lap 3. Abbas advanced into second place on Lap 9 and he passed Ostermann for the top spot two laps later. The lone caution of the race set up a green-white-checkered finish, but Abbas was smooth en route to winning by 0.641 seconds. He became the eighth different winner in nine series races at the track this season.

Jacob Hughes charged from eighth to second place with Jared Jensen capitalizing on the late-race restart to maneuver from fifth to third. Ostermann placed fourth and Lee Goos Jr. was fifth.

Abbas, Hughes and Ostermann were the heat race winners.

Next up at Huset's Speedway is Nordstrom's Automotive 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 next Sunday.

Flick First at Tri-City Raceway Park;
Ruth Jr., Whitling, Greeley, Davenport, and Rinehart Win Also

(Franklin, PA July 18, 2021): A.J. Flick scored a much-needed win in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprints at Tri-City Raceway Park. With his usual haunts getting hit with rain, Flick was looking for a place to do some preparation for the big race coming up Tuesday at another area speedway. Everything worked to his liking and he left with $2,500 for his efforts.
Also scoring wins this night were Gale Ruth, Jr. (Gary Glass Automotive and Washington House RUSH Sprints), Bobby Whitling (Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks), Chad Greeley (4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks), Garrett Davenport (Junior Sprints Open), and Grady Rinehart (Junior Sprints Stock).
In the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Car part of the program, a pair of third-generation drivers paced the field. Leyton Wagner had the pole and A.J. Flick was on his flank. Carl Bowser and Bob Felmlee were in the second row, with Matt Farnham and Clay Riney beside him. Behind them were Brandon Matus and Adam Kekich, who was subbing for Logan McCandless. Ken Rossey, Jr. and Brent Matus made up the sixth row.
Flick got the best of Wagner on the initial start, and that proved to be an advantage that would not be overcome. “It is weird becasue we’ve never been good here at Tri-City, but here in 2021, it has been our best track.” Flick now has a pair of wins despite only a part-time schedule at the speedway.
Wagner raced along in second, but surrendered the spot to Farnham as the field completed the second circuit of the big half mile.
As Flick and Farnham drew away for the field, Wagner and Felmlee were fighting for third. The veteran, Felmlee, went beneath the younger pilot and took over the third spot with ten to go.
The most hotly contested position for most of the race was sixth, as Sodeman and Brandon Matus were fighting for points. Sodeman entered the night just one point ahead of the Wheelman, but Matus passed him, and a couple of other racers, to put himself unofficially in the lead seeking his first championship at any track.
In the final laps, Farnham started to close in on Flick, who was held up a bit by lapped traffic. However, Flick had a big enough cushion that Farnham could not get close enough to make a bid for the win.
After Flick and Farnham were Felmlee, Brandon Matus, and Wagner. Sixth went to Riney. Sodeman was seventh, then came Kekich, Weaver, and Gallagher.
The pair of heat races for the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprints, presented by the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group, went to Wagner and Flick. There was no B Main.
In the RUSH Sprint Car division, running under the twin banners of Gary Glass Automotive and Washington House, Arnie Kent and Kevin Ruhlman were on the front row, with Gale Ruth, Jr. and Rod George right behind. Brad Church and Chad Ruhlan occupied the third row, and Balze Myers and Tyler Newhart were in the fourth. Row five belonged to Brian Hartzell and A.J. McQuarrie, and Zach Morrow was apired with Joe Lockhart in row six.
Kent dashed out to the early lead, with Kevin Ruhlman and Gale Ruth, Jr. trailing. Ruth moved into the lead on the fourth lap and was never headed.

As the race went on, there was a tremendous battle for the second spot involving Kent, Kevin and Chad Ruhlman, and George. Kevin Ruhlman slid out of the groove going down the long back chute and lost a pair of positions. However, his bigger mistake came after the checkers, when he failed to take his car across the scales. He was disqualified for the infraction.
Ruth scored the win, his second in three tries at Tri-City Raceway Park. Kent, Chad Ruhlman, George, and Blaze Myers were the top five finishers.
Sixth went to John Mollick, followed by Brad Church, Brian Hartzell, A.J. McQuarrie, and Nolan Graves.
The Donovan & Bauer Auto Group heat races for the Gary Glass Automotive and Washington House RUSH Sprints went to Gale Ruth, Jr. and Rod George. There was no B Main.
The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks ran a tune-up for the big-paying Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship battle coming up on July 15. Bobby Whitling, a two-time winner this season, started on the pole with Tim Bish as his dancing partner. Jason Johns and Darr Diegelman were in the second row, with Shane Applebee and Rod Laskey in the third. Joe Stajnrajh and Tyler Wyant were in the fourth row, with Patrick Fielding beside Andy Buckley. Row six belonged to last week’s winner, Curtis J. Bish and his brother Curt Bish, Jr.
Tim Bish took the early lead, but Whitling was racing in his shadow. After a close battle between them, Whitling took charge. Curtis J. Bish worked into third and he was challenging for second. Meanwhile, Jason Johns, Rod Laskey, Tyler Wyant, Josh Seippel and others were fifghting for spots in the top ten.
Whitling had the inside line working to perfection and he crossed the finish line first. A trio of Bishes--Tim, Curtis J., and Curt--came next. Johns was fifth. Sixth went to Seippel, followed by Laskey, Wyant, Buckley, and Doug Iorio, II.

Three Donovan & Bauer Auto Group heat races were contested for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks. Winners were Joe Stajnrajh, Darr Diegelman, and Patrick Fielding. There was no B Main, as all 27 racers were allowed to start the feature event.
In the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks, Chad Greeley and Bodey McClintock led the field to the starting line in turn four. Tim Callahan and Patrick Lane followed, with D.J. Macrae and Evan Sobieski in row three. Point leader Dalton Speer lined up next to his rival, Justin Bailey, in the fourth row. Levi Maskal and Mike Barr were in row five and Jamie Tasker and Hemi Kineston were in row six.
It was only a matter of time before Greeley would win a feature in his highly competitive four cylinder machine. He moved into the lead at the drop of the green and withstood several restarts, including one with just a pair of laps to go.
Taking the second position was Bailey, who took over the unofficial points lead with his top finish. Bodey McClintock, who ran second a good bit of the race, took third, with D.J. Macrae and Levi Maskal in fifth.
The sixth place finisher was Evan Sobieski. Patrick Lane, Hemi Kineston, Michael Barr, and Joanne Wilson completed the top ten.
Dalton Speer, who entered the night with the point lead, suffered a flat while racing in the top five.
The pair of Donovan & Bauer heat races for the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks went to Justin Bailey and Dalton Speer. Ther was no B Main.
Garret Davenport swept the heat and feature for the Junior Sprints. Taking second, also in an Open car, was Carter Himes. The Stock division winner was Grady Rinehart, followed by Adam Presnar, Camron Miller, David Coley, Colton Gulher, Jazlyn Boyles, Deryk Jones, Maddie Rafferty, and Keaton Himes.
Next week, Tri-City Raceway Park will present the Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series. All of the regional stars and cars will be on hand to challenge the stout competitors in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stock Class. This special event will pay at least $3,500 to the winner and $150 to start the feature, but there will be no increase in the general admission ticket prices. Also on the card will be the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars, the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds, and the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. The following two weeks, August 1 and 8, will be Sunday Thunder events. Point racing will conclude at Tri-City Raceway Park on August 15.

McIntosh Sweeps Win at Sweet Springs Motor Complex

Sweet Springs, MO. (07/17/2021) – After missing opening night of the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League’s inaugural Thunder in the Valley event at Valley Speedway, Cannon McIntosh picked up where he left off, leading all but eight laps of the 30-lap main event at Sweep Springs Motor Complex in Sweet Springs, MO. This was McIntosh’s second victory with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League thus far in the 2021 season.

On the opening lap, Bryant Wiedeman of Colby, KS. immediately took command. Wiedeman went on to lead lap one, but Mcintosh and Brent Crews never left his tail. Hard charging Mcintosh looked to the inside of Wiedeman on lap eight to take over the top spot and never looked back. McIntosh found himself in lapped traffic and was able to pull away from the rest of the field.

McIntosh with plenty of lapped traffic between himself and the rest of the field, he had a moment of breathing room until lap 18. The action slowed as Broc Hunnell found himself upside down in the middle of turns 3&4. With twelve laps to go, McIntosh checked out and never gave Wiedeman a chance to challenge him as he found himself in a battle with teammate, Kaylee Bryson.

Cannon McIntosh crossed the finish line first and captured his second Lucas Oil POWRi National & West Midget League of the season. TRD Hard charger, Kaylee Bryson fought for the second position and landed it from teammate Wiedeman, who finished third. Gavan Boschele finished in the fourth spot and, Brent Crews rounded out the top five.

ELEVENTH HOWARD KAEDING CLASSIC GOES TO SEAN BECKER

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (July 18, 2021) – Roseville’s Sean Becker added another crown jewel to his career, earning the $6,900 victory in Saturday’s 11th running of the Howard Kaeding Classic at Ocean Speedway. The NARC King of the West Fujitsu Racing Series 30-lap feature had a tumultuous first half before Becker took command. He celebrated by climbing the front stretch fence and saluting the fans in Watsonville.

Australian Jessie Attard took the lead from the outside pole with the caution falling on the next lap when B-Main winner Sean Watts of Atwater stopped on the backstretch with a flat left rear tire. 2015 Ocean Sprints champion Shane Golobic took over the lead on the outside on lap eight. Dash winner Corey Day of Clovis made a bid up the inside to enter the top-five but it was nullified by JJ Ringo of Morgan Hill going off track in turn two for a lap nine caution.

Fast-time Tim Kaeding lifted his front wheels up from the second row on the restart, then collided with Golobic into turn one. Kaeding spun down the speedway with numerous cars colliding up against the inside berm. Ocean Sprints points leader Justin Sanders went upside down while Sacramento’s Kalib Henry, Bernal, and Roseville’s Willie Croft hit Kaeding. Defending HK Classic winner Kyle Hirst slid to avoid the melee and was clipped by Dominic Scelzi who flipped as a result. Several other cars were also involved. Croft was unable to continue but the other involved parties restarted at the rear after a lengthy red flag.

Kaeding then flipped on the restart attempt, requiring an open red flag on the ninth lap of the feature. Golobic surrendered the lead with a flat tire with Becker taking control of the race. Becker met lapped traffic by lap 12. Day fell backwards before drawing a caution on lap 14 in turn two. Gilroy’s Kurt Nelson had avoided trouble to advance from 22nd to seventh by that mark of the event.

Tanner and Blake Carrick each got the inside rolling on the restart to pass Attard. Attard and Blake Carrick collided on the front stretch with Attard spinning into turn one. Bud Kaeding and Nelson tangled on the front stretch as well, sending Bud into Ryan Bernal into turn one. The ensuing melee saw Ringo flip at the top of turn one requiring a red flag. Sanders and Ancona were eliminated from the race and several other cars had contact as well.

Becker charged forward over the final half of the feature, working through lapped traffic to earn the coveted Howard Kaeding Classic triumph. Tanner Carrick finished second ahead of 2020 Ocean Sprints champion Mitchell Faccinto, Blake Carrick, and Bernal. Blake Carrick won the $650 hard charger in a move from 18th to 4th at the finish.

An outstanding 23-car IMCA Modified field had a challenging feature cut short by caution flags with Rick Diaz of Los Banos getting the win. Diaz led lap one on the inside before Steve Pemberton of Salinas led lap two on the outside. After a pair of cautions, Diaz was back out front on lap four.

Jim Pettit was a part of several of the cautions including a hard crash when Nick Decarlo went over the top of him into turn three, collecting Aaron Crowell as well. A final caution on lap 16 cut the feature short with Diaz leading challenger Matthew Hagio for the win. 2020 Antioch champion Troy Foulger, DeCarlo, and 2020 Ocean champion Cody Burke were the top-five.

Chowchilla’s Austin VanHoff led all 20-laps for the Hobby Stock feature win. Initial outside pole sitter Sam Kennedy slowed on the first start attempt, then pitted for a flat tire. He returned to the speedway in front of the leaders to run at the tail end of the lead lap. VanHoff paced a tight formation of the top-five cars as they battled for the lead closely behind Kennedy.

Andy Gregg, Shawn Jones, Kevin Jinkerson and Austin Struthers earn Placerville Speedway wins Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…It had been quite some time since local favorite Andy Gregg tasted victory at his hometown track. That all changed on Saturday however, as the 41-year-old put together a masterful drive in the feature and charged to a big victory with the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Cars at Placerville Speedway.

Sharing victory lane with Gregg on Saturday were Shawn Jones with the Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour, Kevin Jinkerson in the Pure Stocks and Austin Struthers with the Mini Trucks. A total of 76-cars were on hand to compete at the 12th championship point race of the season.

The 2021 season had been announced that it will be Gregg’s final as team owner of the Guts Racing No. 16x and he certainly wanted to add another triumph by the end of it. Starting on the pole he blasted into the lead and held a steady advantage over much of the contest. Auburn’s Andy Forsberg quickly moved into second and did keep the leader honest at times. As the race wound down though, Gregg carved his way through traffic like a hot knife through butter and put several lapped cars between himself and second place.

A late red flag then created a four-lap dash to the finish and allowed Forsberg to start right on his tail tank. A couple times it looked as if the 7-time track champ would have a shot, but Gregg cut perfect laps over the final two circuits and crossed under the Darin Stahl checkered flag for his first win at the track since 2015. It marked his 12th career triumph at Placerville Speedway, tying him with Scooter Lambert and the late Stephen Allard on the all-time list.

Forsberg brought home a season-best Placerville finish of second, while Colby Johnson had one of the finest nights of his career at the track by setting the ADCO Driveline Fast Time, before making a final corner pass of Joel Myers Jr. to finish third in the feature. Myers Jr. and past track champion Steven Tiner rounded out the top-five. It was Tiner’s first start of the year and he looked solid all night. Stephen Ingraham, Shane Hopkins, Ryan Robinson, Jimmy Trulli and Michael Ing completed the top-10.

Winged 360 finish: 1. 16X-Andy Gregg[1]; 2. X1-Andy Forsberg[3]; 3. 38-Colby Johnson[7]; 4. 46JR-Joel Myers Jr[5]; 5. 94TH-Steven Tiner[8]; 6. 93-Stephen Ingraham[4]; 7. 21-Shane Hopkins[9]; 8. 14W-Ryan Robinson[6]; 9. 33T-Jimmy Trulli[2]; 10. 21X-Michael Ing[12]; 11. 34-Landon Brooks[10]; 12. 2-Cody Spencer[13]; 13. 7H-Jake Haulot[11]; 14. 80N-Justin Bradway[21]; 15. 6-Logan Calderwood[19]; 16. 83SA-Isaiah Vasquez[16]; 17. 25-Justin Johnson[15]; 18. 4-Tuesday Calderwood[20]; 19. 2X-Alex Pettas[17]; 20. 12-Jimmy Christian[18]; 21. 85-CJ Humphreys[14]

It does not matter if it’s a Dwarf Car or a Wingless Sprint Car, San Jose’s Shawn Jones always puts on a show. That was definitely the case on Saturday as he claimed victory with the Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour presented by PureCrop1. Daniel Whitley led the way for much of the race as he rolled the bottom side to perfection. Jones was relentless on the high-side of the speedway, particularly in turns three and four. He and Tim Sherman Jr. delighted the crowd with an exciting back and forth duel for the runner up spot.

A few times Jones got tripped up on the tricky cushion, but never gave up and eventually charged to the lead around lap 16. The tenacity paid off as he drove away to pick up the win over Whitley, Sherman Jr., Dylan Bloomfield and Shawn Arriaga. Rounding out the top-10 in the 25-lapper were Heath Holdsclaw, Cody Fendley, Shane Hopkins, Marcus Hardina and Nathan Schank. A strong field of 33 Joe Hunt Magnetos Wingless Sprinters signed into the pit area on Saturday. The division returns to Placerville as part of Legends Night on August 14th.

Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour finish: 1. 14-Shawn Jones[4]; 2. 6K-Daniel Whitley[1]; 3. 1JR-Tim Sherman Jr[3]; 4. 32-Dylan Bloomfield[18]; 5. 56-Shawn Arriaga[5]; 6. 33-Heath Holdsclaw[12]; 7. 9-Cody Fendley[2]; 8. 51-Shane Hopkins[10]; 9. 21X-Marcus Hardina[17]; 10. 1-Nathan Schank[11]; 11. 2-Kevin Box[8]; 12. 11-Cameron Martin[15]; 13. 2STX-Brent Steck[13]; 14. 63-Dylan Newberry[20]; 15. 36-Bob Newberry[9]; 16. 12-Jarrett Soares[19]; 17. 60-Scott Clough[16]; 18. 3T-Bradley Terrell[14]; 19. 17-Jake Morgan[6]; 20. 22JR-Braidon Moniz[7]

The Pure Stock main event saw Rio Linda’s Ryan Peter set the pace until Diamond Springs’ Kevin Jinkerson climbed to the top-spot. Current Placerville Speedway point leader Nick Baldwin of Oakley eventually sliced his way to second, but on this night it was all about Jinkerson, who picked up his third win of the season. Baldwin crossed the stripe in second, followed by Peter, Jason Poppert and Kennth Robles in the top-five. Tyler Lightfoot, Jonny Walsh, John Evans, Kenny Bernstein and Mel Byers rounded out the top-10.

Pure Stock finish: 1. 30-Kevin Jinkerson[4]; 2. 17-Nick Baldwin[6]; 3. 83-Ryan Peter[2]; 4. 87-Jason Poppert[3]; 5. 78K-Kenneth Robles[8]; 6. 29-Tyler Lightfoot[9]; 7. 4-Jonny Walsh[11]; 8. 48-John Evans[10]; 9. 43-Kenny Bernstein[5]; 10. 93-Mel Byers[13]; 11. 47-Michael Murphy[1]; 12. 14-James West[12]; 13. 5M-Blake Disomma[7]

The Mini Truck finale ended up being a rough and tumble affair that saw several drivers have a shot at victory. In the end though it was Placerville’s Austin Struthers that got it done after 25-laps of competition. Current Placerville point leader Mike Miller came home in second, with Ted Ahart, Eric Jorgenson and Howard Miller completing the top-five.

Mini Truck finish: 1. 70-Austin Struthers[6]; 2. 16-Mike Miller[2]; 3. 1-Ted Ahart[3]; 4. 61-Eric Jorgensen[4]; 5. 28-Howard Miller[5]; 6. 08JR-Thomas Jensen[1]; 7. 04-Wyatt Lakin[7]

Gastineau unstoppable in Sooner Sprint win at Oklahoma Sports Park

by John Rittenoure - ADA, Okla. (July 17, 2021) - There was no stopping Whit Gastineau on his way to victory Saturday in the Sooner Sprint Series feature at Oklahoma Sports Park.

There was a threat of rain in the area before the show started, but Oklahoma Sports Park stayed high and dry and fans watched Gastineau turn some fast 16 second laps around the 4/10 mile oval on the way to victory.

“We have been working on our setup, car height, shocks and stuff,” Gastineau said of his dominating performance. “We are finally getting the car right.

“We may not be right on the money, but we are getting close.”

Gastineau lined up beside pole sitter Sheldon Barksdale for the start of the 20-lapper and quickly moved into the lead after a lap one yellow. Soon Barksdale found himself running a distant second as Gastineau pulled away.

Barksdale soon found himself in a race with Gary Owens for 2nd. But a lap 18 yellow for Austin Shores, who was sitting off the top of turn two, made it a new race for the top three spots. When the green waved to start lap 18 Gastineau again pulled away and Owens gunned his way around Barksdale in turn four for second. At the finish it was Gastineau, Owens and Barksdale in the top three spots.

Three-time and defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland notched his second consecutive and fourth overall 25-lap Sheboygan’s County 93.7 Late Model A-main victory of the 2021 season.

Two-time PDTR Grand National champ Don Sorce Jr. of West Allis rolled to his first A-main triumph of 2021, while 2017 PDTR B Mod champion Justin Green of Sheboygan Falls made the most of a fill-in driving opportunity behind the wheel of Spencer Long’s 59s machine to earn the victory in the 25-lap B Mod main event.

Polesitter Will Gerrits of Waupun grabbed the lead in turn one of the opening lap of the360 Sprint Car A main with 2018 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Justin Miller of Plymouth, who started second, and 2008 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett, who started fifth, moving into third.

The first of four caution flags appeared on lap 5 when Fassbender spun in turn three. On the restart, Brandon McMullen, who started seventh, used the outside groove to move into second on lap 6.

Five laps later, McMullen powered around Gerrits and into the top spot along the outside line of the wide, smooth and slick racing surface exiting turn four.

On lap 13, point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan Falls stalled in turn four to bring out the second caution flag. Another caution flag appeared on the ensuing restart as Chris Clayton of Waldo, Doug Wondra of Lomira and Tyler Brabant of Waupun collided along the backstretch.

McMullen controlled the next restart with Gerrits in second and 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Ben Schmidt of Plymouth, who started ninth, in third.

The fourth and final caution flag was displayed on lap 14 when Justin Erickson of Plymouth, Blake Wondra of Fond du Lac and Tyler Brabant made contact in turn four.

Following the restart, Schmidt slipped past Gerrits into second, while McMullen bolted away from the field along the cushion.

Justin Schmidt utilized the high line on the restart to seize second entering turn one on lap 8 before Wayne Freimund brought out another caution flag on lap 9 when he stalled in turn one.

Two more caution flags followed in quick succession as Donny Singer of Random Lake and Chad Ludwigson of Sheboygan Falls collided in turn four and Jim Schmidt of Cleveland hit the turn one wall.

Justin Schmidt turned it up following the final restart to challenge Charlie Schmidt for the lead beginning on lap 12. Slower traffic allowed Justin Schmidt to move within striking distance on lap 19 and four laps later, he powered into the lead in turn two in heavy lapped traffic.

Justin Schmidt pulled away over the final two laps to secure his 17th career PDTR Late Model A-main victory to break a tie with his father Jim and move into sole possession of third place on the all-time PDTR Late Model A-main victory list.

Ruh battled back to seize the lead in turn two on lap 2 before Scholten again wrestled away the lead in turn four to take over the top spot. The first of three caution flags appeared on lap five when Derek Kaat of Howards Groove spun in turn two.

On the restart, Don Sorce Jr., who started sixth, seized second lap 9. Four laps later, Scholten made contact with the lapped car of Darren Meyer, which produced the second caution flag when Meyer spun in turn three on lap 13.

On the restart, Ruh batted back to assume the top spot along the high groove on lap 14 just behind the third and final caution flag came out for Ryan Falk in turn two.

After the final restart, Scholten and Ruh engaged in a heated side-by-side duel before Ruh surged ahead. Meanwhile, Sorce Jr. moved into second and quickly moved in to pressure Ruh for the top spot.

On lap 18, Sorce Jr. ducked low to take over the lead in turn four.

Axsom Aces UAC Midwest Midget Championship Finale at Jefferson County Speedway!

Lonnie Wheatley, FAIRBURY, Neb. (July 17, 2021) – Emerson Axsom picked a fine time to find his way back into USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series victory lane.

After all, a $10,000 winner’s share awaited the winner of Saturday night’s Fourth Annual Riverside Chevrolet Midwest Midget Championship presented by Westin Packaged Meats and Schmidt’s Sanitation feature event winner atop the 1/5-mile Jefferson County Speedway clay oval that put the wraps on “Mid-America Midget Week”.

It wasn’t without a fair share of controversy that whipped the crowd into a frenzy however, as the 16-year-old from Franklin, IN, came into contact with race leader Logan Seavey in the closing rounds of the 40-lap main event to take command before securing his second series win of the year aboard the Petry Motorsports Toyota-powered FK Rod Ends No. 15 IronBorn Studio Bullet by Spike machine.

“I felt like the lapped car checked up and Logan (Seavey) cut down, I didn’t want to get into him at all,” Axsom explained afterward. “I just can’t thank everyone on this car enough that makes it go so fast, you have to go as hard as you can because nobody gives an inch in Midget racing.”

While disappointed with the ultimate outcome, Sutter, California’s Seavey stated a similar account of the incident after leading 32 laps of the event aboard Tom Malloy’s Ed Pink Toyota-powered Trench Shoring No. 25.

“That lapped car checked up more than I expected,” Seavey lamented afterward. “He (Axsom) got into me then, but I don’t think he tried to wreck me. It’s just frustrating, especially when there’s $10,000 on the line.”

After Axsom gunned into the lead from the third starting position on the opening round, Seavey battled back to the front the next time around and fought off a hornet’s nest of contenders that included Axsom along with Kevin Thomas, Jr., Chris Windom and Justin Grant among others.

The race-defining moment came as the leaders were battling through traffic in the closing ten laps with Axsom and Seavey coming together on the 33rd lap in turn two. A quick 360-degree spin brought out the automatic caution flag and sent Seavey to the tail of the field with Axsom back in command.

In the process, current series points leader Buddy Kofoid had rallied from 15th and sat third on the restart behind Axsom and Thomas, Jr. After making his way into second in short order, Kofoid made one last charge for the point after a final caution with a pair of laps to go but was forced to settle for runner-up honors aboard the Keith Kunz Motorsports Mobil 1 No. 67 behind a determined Axsom.

“I just needed laps to keep clicking off, on the long run my car was really good,” Kofoid explained after advancing 13 positions. “I think we were the better car, even after a mistake I could reel him back in within a lap. There’s a reason this is one of my favorite places to come to, it’s not often you can come from that far back.”

Chris Windom rounded out the podium for the second night in a row aboard the CB Industries NOS Energy Drink No. 89, commenting that, “The last eight or nine laps I got a little sputter in the middle of the corner that kinda hurt me and made it hard to run those guys down. We’ll take a top three.”

Justin Grant finished out the week with a fourth-place run while Daison Pursley raced from 14th to round out the top five. The balance of the top ten included Cannon McIntosh, Thomas, Jr., 20th-starter erry Coons, Jr., Brenham Crouch and Thomas Meseraull.

After a lap six caution for Hayden Williams in turn one and then one another half-dozen laps later for McIntosh and Meseraull in turn two, Jake Bubak went for a tumble on the backstretch on the 12th lap restart.

Meseraull, McIntosh, Zac Taylor and Bubak claimed heat race wins before Trey Gropp bested the “B” Main.

Kory Schudy Shines in POWRi WAR Thunder in the Valley
Belleville, IL. (07/17/2021) With over a month since the last competition, a stout field of Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League drivers would flock to Valley Speedway for Thunder in the Valley. With thirty entries logging into the event, Kory Schudy would find the fastest route around Valley Speedway claiming his third series win and first WAR victory of 2021.

Early racing action would witness Mitchell Moore, Lane Stone, Mario Clouser, and Ty Hulsey all claim heat racing victories with Hulsey earning the high point qualifier award for the event from a fifth starting spot to winning his heat race, as Joe B. Miller grabbed the semi-feature victory.

Starting the stout field of Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League would find Ty Hulsey grab the lead early, holding the top spot for seven revolutions as the drivers began to space out a technical tricky track.

With Hulsey out front, seventh-starting Kory Schudy would work his way to the front using a mid-to-higher running line than the other competitors. Schudy would strike for the front by using a slingshot maneuver around the speedy Hulsey on the high-side exiting turn-two.

Schudy would run a near-flawless race for the rest of the feature, never giving up the prized position with outstanding action behind the winning team. Hulsey, Zach Daum, and rookie contender Xavier Doney would battle wheel-to-wheel for the runner-up spot with the young-upstart Doney notching his career-best finish using high-side momentum around third finishing Zach Daum.

“This track really came in tonight, very technical, but this car is fast, it’s always a good time and this team has started to fire on all cylinders. Tonight was a lot of fun for sure”, said a victorious Kory Schudy in Valley Speedway victory lane.

One-time leader Hulsey would slip in the latter stages of the feature event finishing fourth as flying from sixteenth would see Chris Morgan round out the Valley Speedway top-five finishers for the POWRi WAR Sprint League.

Crews Captures First POWRi Win & Becomes Youngest Winner in League History

Grain Valley, MO. (07/17/2021) The Denver, North Carolina native, Brent Crews grabbed the early lead and captured his first career Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League Victory at Grain Valley Speedway. Driver behind the No. 86 also became the youngest driver to ever win a Lucas Oil POWRi National event. Crews outlasted the 30-lap main and captured CBIndustries second win on the 2021 season with the series.

A field of 24 Lucas Oil POWRi National & West Midgets filled the pit area at Valley Speedway for the first night of racing this weekend. The program saw Kaylee Bryson, Jake Neuman, and Taylor Reimer capture heat race victories.

Crews started out the 30-lap race starting in the third position. At the drop of the green flag, the field saw Karter Sarff to the lead. Taylor Reimer and Crews battled it out behind him for the second position. Crews got passed Reimer and set his sights on Sarff for the lead. A few early race cautions kept the field bunched up.

As the field went back green, Crews challenged Sarff for the lead and presumed the top position. Kaylee Bryson threw herself in the mix and followed Crews through to the second position.

Most of the 24-car field were making laps on the bottom of the speedway, but Bryson stepped out and made things happen on the top side. Bryson caught Crews and gave him all that she had, but Crews held on to win his first career Lucas Oil POWRi win.

The Lucas Oil POWRi National & West Midget League will be back in action tomorrow, Sunday July 18th at Sweet Springs Motor complex.

Wilmot Raceway

(Wilmot, Wis., Saturday, July 17, 2021)--It was a true Family Night at Wilmot Raceway with feature wins following the CK Contractors Candy Drop starting the night off for the children after the National Anthem.
Burlington's Rusty Egan won his first ever 20-lap AutoMeter/Brewington Electric Wisconsin Wingless Sprint feature at Wilmot Raceway on an emotional Family Night on Saturday, July 17. "This is so special because it's my first feature win at the race track I used to sell checkered flags at when I was growing up," said Egan, joined by his family including his dad, Russ Egan, who was celebrating his birthday, in victory lane. "The cautions helped me because I don't know if I could have made it through the lapped traffic."
Egan, who won a Wisconsin Wingless Series feature at 141 Speedway before, led every lap of the main weathering cautions at the halfway point and with three laps remaining. Salem's George Gaertner Jr. had a career best second place finish. Trevor's Jordan Paulsen was third. Kansasville's Ryan Marshall fourth. Jimmy Sivia of Winthrop Harbor, IL fifth.
Genoa City's Mike Simons captured his first 20-lap modified feature win of the season. M. Simons, three-time track champion, had four caution periods erase sizeable leads throughout the feature. The last with five laps remaining set up a battle with Caledonia's Chris Carlson with the two getting side by side a couple of times during the closing laps. At the finish it was M. Simons with the win. Carlson was second. Eagle's Steve Mueller third. Waterford's Mike Wittenburg fourth. Genoa City's Nick Simons, Mike's younger brother, fifth.
"I have to thank my wife, my daughter, my parents, all of our sponsors for the support they've given me," said M. Simons, who was joined by the family in victory lane. "I knew Chris was there and just stuck to my line."
The closest finish of the night came in the 20-lap IRA Lightning Sprint feature. Sifting through lapped traffic coming for the checkered flag, Oak Creek's Mark Heinert nipped C.J. Malueg of Johnsburg, IL by less than one foot at the checkered flag. For the second Wilmot main win in a row, it was Heinert the winner and Malueg second. Ion Stear of Hebron, IL was third. Nick Petska of Spring Grove, IL fourth. Pleasant Prarie's Mike Neau fifth.
"The scoreboard said the same thing this week as it did last week," said Heinert, who won his second in a row at Wilmot. "The car was a little tight, but I was able to make it just enough. I knew C.J. was coming. I have to thank my wife and family for all of their support, especially on Family Night."
Cody Erickson of Algonquin, IL won his third feature overall, and second points main event of the season at Wilmot by taking the victory in the 20-lap street stock headliner. Erickson led flag to flag, with a final caution coming nine laps from the finish. Rob Maule of Hebron was second. Brandon Mertes of Antioch, IL finished third in a tight battle with fourth place David Jones of North Chicago, IL and fifth place Big Bend's Mark Baker.
"This is a fun car to drive because it's an Outlaw Chassis with a Coil Engine and my dad does a lot of the set up on the car," said Erickson, who was joined by his dad, Dave, in the final victory lane of Family Night. "The caution came at just the right time because I admit, I needed a little breather."

Colby Copeland Becomes First Repeat Winner Of Speedweek Northwest 2021; Earns Victory In Round Four At Cottage Grove
Cottage Grove, Oregon- After a day off, the cars and stars of the Western Sprint Tour’s Speedweek Northwest resumed their racing ways on Friday, July 16th. Stop four of the series brought the race teams to Cottage Grove Speedway for the first of two consecutive nights. Thirty teams and drivers were in attendance for the event representing the American states of Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Indiana, and the Canadian province of British Columbia.

The main event was an incident-filled affair. However, despite the nine stoppages, including one for a red flag, one thing remained the same, Colby Copeland was in dominant form. The Roseville, California racer obtained the point on completing lap one and did not feel any pressure the rest of the way.

Copeland, racing for car owners Jim and Annette Van Lare, was masterful in his maneuvering in open race track and lapped traffic. Colby was the first car to the finish line to become the first repeat winner of Speedweek Northwest 2021 and earned his first career Cottage Grove Speedway triumph. It is his fifth overall series win for Colby Copeland in tour history and now sixth all-time on the list tied with Travis Rilat and Brad Furr.

Jacksonville teenager Tanner Holmes for the second straight round, ended the evening second over third, finishing Trey Starks, from Puyallup, Washington. Jodie Robinson of Roseville, California, was credited with fourth while fifth place went to Harrisburg’s Tyler Thompson after being involved in a lap eight caution. Cottage Grove native Kinzer Cox passed the most cars throughout the race to earn the Rocket Engines Hard Charger Award.

Pittsboro, Indiana traveler Brinton Marvel, racing for car owner Blake Cook, was quickest in time trials. Heat race wins were picked up by Tanner Holmes, Justyn Cox of West Sacramento, California in the Doug and Kathy Rutz ride, Redding, California youngster Max MIttry, and Chase Goetz from Snohomish, Washington. Colby Copeland won the trophy dash to earn the inside front-row starting position, and Kinzer Cox was victorious in the B Main.

Speedweek Northwest will wrap things up on Saturday, July 17th, for the final round of competition. The series will remain at Cottage Grove Speedway, where they will all battle it out for $5,000 to the winner of the main event.

8-lap heats used passing points to set up the feature. Russell led O’Neal and Grossenbacher early. O’Neal’s run came to an end with three to go when he broke a torsion arm. Bogucki also exited and would not return. Russell held them off to win it. Thornhill dealt with mechanical issues all night and never got it going.

The 25-lapper saw Williamson leading Covington, Anderson and Hill early. Anderson went over the cushion on the high banks on lap two and Hill moved into third. Hickle assumed fourth. Williamson was into lapped traffic on the fifth lap. Three laps later, things were hectic up front, and Covington took the low route to the point in heavy lapped traffic. Hickle got by Hill on lap 12 and it was a three-way battle for the lead at that point. Williamson dove in front of Covington to briefly retake the lead on lap 14, but by the time the field came back to the line, Covington was leading. By lap 18, Hahn was in the mix, and a blanket could be thrown over the top four, as they swapped positions at will. Things came to a quick end when Ramey and O’Neal flipped in turn four. Hickle also tipped over to avoid the two, surrendering his top four run. Covington led Williamson, Hahn, Hill and Martin back to green, while Westbrook exited with mechanical issues. Martin moved by Hill for fourth with four to go, but he would get over the top of the turn three cushion and flip with two to go. Covington led the two lap Dash to the checkers. Helt was the hard-charger.

 

 

MONTGOMERY GRABS $2,000 HOWARD KAEDING CLASSIC OPENING NIGHT WIN

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (July 17, 2021) – Templeton’s Kaleb Montgomery won his first career Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo feature on Friday night, grabbing the 30-lap night one of the 11th Howard Kaeding Classic worth $2,000. Montgomery outran Tim Kaeding through lapped traffic for the coveted win at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds quarter-mile oval.

A blistering fast race-track rewarded the strong crowd with a new track record in time trials, as Keith Day, Jr. lowered his 11.122 second mark from June with a 10.979 second lap. Day went on to win the dash as well, with lucrative cash awards for both. The 31-car turnout was narrowed to 24 starters for the feature which paid $500 to start.

The initial start attempted between Day and Concord’s Joey Ancona was called back, with Sacramento’s Kalib Henry flipping into turn one around a spinning Bradley Dillard in the process. When racing resumed, Montgomery and Corey Day made up a fresh front row. Corey Day charged ahead on the outside in the Tarlton & Son no. 21 to lead the opening circuit. Action was red flagged on the second lap when Jerry Bonnema of Corralitos flipped on the backstretch.

Ninth starting Tim Kaeding used the inside to go two-for-one to take third by lap three. The leaders encountered lapped traffic by lap six. Gilroy’s Kurt Nelson spun in turn two to require a caution on lap eight. The lap eight restart proved to be the exclamation point of the race.

Montgomery attempted to turn underneath Day on the restart as they drove into turn one. They collided exiting turn two, with Day then clipping points leader Justin Sanders and getting hit from behind by Keith Day, Jr. Roseville’s Sean Becker and Nelson tangled, 2019 champion JJ Ringo spun, while Jeremy Chisum, 2020 race winner DJ Netto, and Burt Foland all incurred damage as well. Corey Day was unable to continue, ending his bid for victory.

Montgomery assumed the lead on the restart while Kaeding and Sanders battled for second behind him. The leaders spent the second half of the feature darting around lapped traffic, with Kaeding looking both inside and outside to try to overhaul Montgomery. Montgomery took the white flag in the lead while Sanders tried a slidejob for second on Kaeding into turn one. Kaeding crossed him over before Sanders spun exiting turn four. Montgomery won ahead of Tim Kaeding, Ancona, Bud Kaeding, and Sanders. Koen Shaw drove 17th to sixth to earn the hard-charger cash as well.

Brentwood’s Blake Bower won his fourth Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction feature of 2021. Bower overcame a hard bicycle in turn one early in the feature, preserving over a sore knee for the win in the 20-lap race.

Santa Paula’s Megan Moorhead started second and led the opening lap of competition with Bower driving into third quickly. The caution flew when Bower bicycled to a stop in turn three while his teammate Antonia Boscacci of Mountain View spun to a stop as well. Bower was briefly checked by medical officials before restarting at the back of the field.

Keoni Texeira took over the lead on the restart, moving underneath Moorhead on the inside of turn four to lead lap three. Antioch’s Shawn Arriaga, the heat race winner, duplicated the pass to grab second from Moorhead on lap six. Bower and points leader David Prickett of Fresno followed suit.

The top-three of Texeira, Arriaga, and Bower ran in close formation as they approached the lapped car of Kyle Hawse from Las Vegas. Bower went to the outside in a bid to steal the lead. Texeira looked low on Hawse in turn two and rode over Hawse’s left rear wheel for a violent flip. Texeira was uninjured but eliminated from the race. Bower led the final four laps for the win over Arriaga, Prickett, Moorhead, and Hawse.

Watsonville’s Billy Nelson topped a 16-car turnout for the 20-lap Hobby Stock feature win. Adriane Frost led the way for the first 13 laps, defending challenges from Santa Cruz’s Terry Campion and Nelson. Steve Remde of Watsonville spun in turn one for a caution on lap 13. Nelson went around Frost on the outside on the restart to take the lead. Remde spun again on lap 18, but Nelson held the lead over the final two laps for victory. Rob Gallaher finished second followed by 13th starting Chad Ragsdale of Merced, DJ Keldsen of Newman, and Frost.

San Jose’s Randy Miller added to his IMCA Sport Mod points lead with his second win of the season on Friday night. Scott Foster led the opening lap before five-time 2021 winner Fred Ryland of Brentwood took over on lap two. Miller started eighth but advanced to second by lap five. Ryland spun from the lead in lapped traffic, moving to avoid Justin Carr and getting tagged by Charlie Hunter. Ryland hit the backstretch wall to bring out the yellow on lap 11. He restarted from the rear of the field but surrendered the lead to Miller.

Miller led through a pair of restarts to take the win while Jarrod Mounce of Atwater won a back-and-forth battle for second. Trevor Clymens of Oakley, 2020 champion Adriane Frost, and Jim DiGiovanni of Morgan Hill rounded out the top-five.

The 11th Howard Kaeding Classic continues Saturday night with a $6,900-to-win, $1,000-to-start feature for the NARC King of the West Fujitsu Racing Series.

Juhl Tops Barb Wieskus Memorial and Stien Also Victorious During Jackson Motorplex Event Presented by Holiday Inn Fairmont

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (July 16, 2021) - Matt Juhl and Michael Stien scored sprint car victories on Friday evening at Jackson Motorplex, which hosted the Barb Wieskus Memorial during a special night that was presented by Holiday Inn Fairmont.

Eric Lutz led all but the first three laps of the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and Midwest Power Series 360ci winged sprint car feature, which paid $3,000 to win in honor of Barb Wieskus. However, Lutz failed post-race inspection and Juhl, who crossed the finish line second, was declared the feature winner.

Roger Crockett advanced from eighth to second to garner the Hard Charger Award and a bonus from the Wieskus Family for passing the most cars. Skylar Prochaska placed third, Justin Henderson ended fourth and Brooke Tatnell rounded out the top five.

Juhl set a new track record for 360 sprint cars during his group's qualifying session. Henderson was quick time in his group. Juhl, Elliot Amdahl, Henderson and Lutz each won a heat race.

Stien led the final 16 laps of the 20-lap Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series to become the third different division winner in three races at Jackson Motorplex this season.

Polesitter Bayley Ballenger stuck the bottom and maintained the top spot throughout the first four laps before the first of three cautions occurred on Lap 5. Stien used a higher lane to drive around Ballenger in turn two on the restart and he built a three-second advantage before a pair of cautions just after the midpoint of the race bunched the field together.

By that point Dusty Ballenger had maneuvered from the ninth starting spot into the runner-up position, but Stien was efficient throughout the second half of the race to win by 0.648 seconds. Jody Rosenboom hustled from 11 th to third with Jacob Hughes placing fourth and Trevor Serbus fifth.

Stien, Hughes and Zach Foesch were the heat race winners.

The next event at Jackson Motorplex is Tuesday for the Bank Midwest IMCA Series finale featuring a-modifieds, stock cars, hobby stocks, sport mods and sport compacts.

Thorson Strikes for USAC Midget “Chad McDaniel Memorial” Win at Beloit!

Lonnie Wheatley, BELOIT, Kan. (July 15, 2021) – After sitting dormant for three years, the Solomon Valley Raceway was revived on Thursday night.

And after a Wednesday night postponement due to rain, the North Central Kansas bullring offered up an epic USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series feature event with Minden, Nevada native Tanner Thorson taking command in the closing rounds for his third series win of the year in the second leg of USAC’s “Mid-America Midget Week”.

After current series points leader Buddy Kofoid paced the opening half of the 30-lapper, young gun Emerson Axsom raced into the lead only to surrender the point to Thorson with a handful of laps to go.

Thorson weathered a final red flag with two laps to go to drive the Stanton SRX-11 powered Reinbold-Underwood Motorsports No. 19T AME Electrical/The Healing Tree Spike-chassis to the checkered flag ahead of Axsom and Justin Grant.

“I saw Buddy and then Emerson kinda messing up on the top, the top got super treacherous and I kinda set my car to be able run the bottom to middle and slide myself,” Thorson explained. “I eventually started getting lower and lower and it started wearing off where I could carry more speed off the corner.”

Thorson gridded the feature in fifth as Kofoid fought off some early bids from Cannon McIntosh for the point. Kofoid stayed in command until a caution at the midway point when Axsom charged into the lead as Kofoid got shuffled back several positions.

Thorson kept the pressure on Axsom after a lap 22 caution for McIntosh’s excursion off turn two and then finally slid his way into the lead exiting turn four on the 26th round to take command. One final red flag flew after a Kylee Bryson tumble on the frontstretch before Thorson put the $4,000 victory in the books.

While Thorson notched his first “Chad McDaniel Memorial” win, Axsom settled for runner-up honors in the Petry Motorsports Toyota-powered FK Rod Ends No. 15, commenting that, “He (Thorson) made me lift, in Midgets that’s kind of what you have the option to do. I felt like we gave one away.”

Rounding out the podium for the second time in as many nights of Mid-America Midget Week was Grant in the RMS Racing Toyota-powered NOS Energy Drink No. 2J from the ninth starting position. “I’ve been burying us pretty good in these features and having to take chunks when I can,” the Ione, CA, native explained.

Kofoid settled for fourth after leading the opening 16 laps with Keith Kunz Motorsports teammate and Rookie of the Year contender Bryant Wiedeman rounding out the top five. Chris Windom raced from 13th to sixth after heat race woes with 17th-starter Logan Seavey, Zach Daum, Ryan Timms and New Zealand’s Hayden Williams completing the top ten.

Thomas Meseraull opened the night by setting the standard of 12.223-seconds in qualifying only to have things run afoul. After missing the transfer in his heat race, Meseraull was second in the “B” Main until the final corner only to be collected by a lapped car. And after utilizing a provisional for the feature, a skirmish a handful of laps in brought an early end to the night.

Grant, Axsom, Ethan Mitchell and Brenham Crouch topped heat race action with Daison Pursley besting the 12-lap “B” Main.

USAC’s “Mid-America Midget Week” continues on with the Midwest Midget Championship at Fairbury, Nebraska’s Jefferson County Speedway on Friday and Saturday.

Justyn Cox Slays Sunset Competition In Round 3 Of Speedweek Northwest
By Stephanie Deatherage

Banks, Oregon- Sunset Speedway Park was stop three of Speedweek Northwest 2021 on Wednesday, July 14th. It happened to be the third different track in as many nights with the tour. Seventeen drivers and cars visited the “Banks Bullring”, representing the American states of Oregon, California, and Idaho and the Canadian province of British Columbia.

Come feature time; it took four attempts to complete the first circuit on the -mile clay oval. But, once the racing got underway, Justyn Cox cruised to the point. The West Sacramento, California-based chauffeur, set a torrid pace and got in a terrific rhythm once in the lead.

Cox, racing for Langley, British Columbia car owners Doug and Kathy Rutz, did have to slow down twice due to cautions. But Justyn was flawless on the restarts and in lapped traffic once it came into play.

Justyn Cox went on to win his fourth career Speedweek Northwest victory. The last time he emerged triumphantly with the tour was at Siskiyou Golden Speedway, in Yreka, California, on July 10th, 2017. However, it is his first at SSP to become the fifth different winner in seven series appearances at the facility.

Jacksonville’s Tanner Holmes ended his evening in second with third going to Corey Day, from Clovis, California. The top five finishing order balance was made up of Roseville, California racer Colby Copeland in the Jim and Annette Van Lare machine and Yuba City, California teenager Drake Standley, in fourth and fifth.

Corey Day was the quickest qualifier in time trials. Heat race winners were Colby Copeland and Justyn Cox. Cox would win the evening’s trophy dash to earn the inside front row starting position.

Thursday, July 15th, will be a day off for the teams before they finish up the series at Cottage Grove on Friday, the 16th, and Saturday, the 17th. Saturday night will pay out $5000.00 to the winner, and both legs at CGS will have a Hard Charger bonus courtesy of Rocket Engines.

Round 2 Of Speedweek Northwest 2021 Goes To Colby Copeland At Willamette
By Stephanie Deatherage
Lebanon, Oregon- Willamette Speedway witnessed the return of Speedweek Northwest for the first time since 2018. The Tuesday, July 13th event drew nineteen entries to the historical 1/3-mile clay oval. Drivers and cars from the American states of Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Indiana, and the Canadian province of British Columbia were all in attendance.

In the Jim and Annette Van Lare entry, inside pole-sitter Colby Copeland got off to a hot start at the beginning of the main event. Three total stoppages, two for yellows and one red flag incident, were the only thing to slow the Roseville, California pilot down. However, despite hitting lapped traffic numerous times, Copeland did not hesitate, nor did he struggle to cut his way through the back end of the lead lap field.

Colby Copeland's fourth career Speedweek Northwest victory ties him for eighth all-time in series history with Wayne Johnson and Mitchell Faccinto. It his first series triumph at Willamette Speedway and the first time since June 30th, 2015, at Coos Bay Speedway.

Like the previous evening in Coos Bay, Justyn Cox, now of West Sacramento, California, parked the Doug and Kathy Rutz machine on the front stretch in second place, followed by Tanner Holmes, of Jacksonville, in third. Clovis, California teenager Corey Day ended the night in fourth with fifth going to Tyler Thompson from nearby Harrisburg.

Justyn Cox was quickest in qualifying earlier in the evening. Chico, California's Brad Bumgarner, Matt Hein of Roseburg in the Brett Smith owned car, and Windsor, California native John Clark won the three heat races. Colby Copeland was the winner of the trophy dash putting him on the inside front row starting position.

The third round of Speedweek Northwest takes the tour to Sunset Speedway Park on Wednesday, July 14th. For the latest news and information, be sure and follow along on the Western Sprint Tour Facebook page.

Pursley Pounces for First USAC National Midget Win!

Wins Mid-America Midget Week at Red Dirt Raceway’s “Tuesday Night Thunder”

Lonnie Wheatley, MEEKER, Okla. (July 13, 2021) – Daison Pursley had been painfully close to USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series victory lane on several occasions previously, only to see it slip away.

The Locust Grove, OK, teen sensed an opportunity at Red Dirt Raceway’s “Tuesday Night Thunder” event that kicked off “Mid-America Midget Week” and made the most of it.

Sitting third after a caution with ten laps remaining in the 30-lapper, Pursley ripped around the top side of the track and overtook Zach Daum and then race-leader Kevin Thomas, Jr., on the 23rd circuit.

“I knew Daum wasn’t going to get off the bottom, and KTJ had been there the whole race so it would have been hard for him to jump up there and try something new like that,” Pursley explained. “When you’re running third-place you have to go wherever they don’t go and it worked out.”

Once out front, Pursley scurried away from the pack in the closing laps to take the $4,000 victory aboard the Keith Kunz Motorsports/Curb-Agajanian Toyota-powered IWX No. 71k machine. It made for a sweep of the night after also winning the NOW 600 Non-Wing Micro Sprint feature.

“I feel like this has been a long time coming,” Pursley commented. “Everyone at Keith Kunz Motorports deserves a win and unfortunately it hasn’t been me. Finally we get to check that box off and get that first USAC National Midget win. It’s cool to do it in front of all these fans and do it on my homestate.”

While Pursley ultimately won the race from the fifth starting position, it was another pair of Sooner State drivers leading the way to the green flag in the main event with Broken Arrow’s Jonathan Beason on the pole and Muskogee’s Kaylee Bryson to his outside.

The duo battled side-by-side in the early stages with Beason working low and Bryson on the cushion. Bryson made the cushion work to her advantage to slip ahead as Kevin Thomas, Jr., made his way past Beason to claim second.

With Thomas, Jr., working the low side of the track meticulously, Bryson continued to flirt with a treacherous cushion and the slightest of bobbles opened the door for Thomas, Jr., to take command on the 11th round with Daum working into contention as well on the low-side from seventh.

After the race’s previous only stoppage when fast qualifier Bryant Wiedeman went for a wild ride in turn one on the opening lap, the only other caution flew after 20 laps when Kaylee Bryson got tangled up in lapped traffic to hand second to Daum and move Pursley into third.

Pursley wasted no time blasting past both rim-riders on the restart and paced the final eight laps to secure that coveted first career USAC National Midget win.

After starting 13th, Justin Grant made a late surge through the field to capture runner-up honors with Daum settling for the show position.

“I buried us in the ‘B’ and had to come from 13th, these RMS guys gave me an awesome car and the curb was tall and gnarly,” Grant explained afterward. “They had me really stable and I had a good time.”

Daum’s first outing with the Bundy Built team was a considerable success after winning his heat race as did teammate Ethan Mitchell. “It’s cool for me because I haven’t really run a Midget all year,” Daum explained. “Obviously the car runs really good, we can just fine-tune it a little for myself and we should be a contender tomorrow hopefully.”

Thomas, Jr., slipped to fourth in the closing rounds with reigning series champion Chris Windom climbing from 12th to round out the top five. Current series points leader Buddy Kofoid raced from 15th to sixth with Jerry Coons, Jr., Beason, Logan Seavey and Chase Randall completing the top ten.

Leading Rookie of the Year contender Wiedeman established the night’s quickest time 13.160-second over a Red Dirt Raceway “Tuesday Night Thunder” field of 38 entries with Mitchell, Brenham Crouch, Daum and Cannon McIntosh winning heat races before Randall topped the “B” Main

The USAC National Midget series “Mid-America Midget Week” resumes with Wednesday night’s Tenth Chad McDaniel Memorial at Beloit, Kansas’ Solomon Valley Raceway before wrapping up with the Midwest Midget Championship at Fairbury, Nebraska’s Jefferson County Speedway that includes a Thursday night practice and then two full cards of racing on Friday and Saturday that culminates with a $10,000-to-win finale.

Spencer Bayston earns 1st World of Outlaw win taking the Brad Doty Classic at Attica

Tuesday, July 13, 2021

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio (July 13, 2021) – Attica Raceway Park will forever hold a special spot in the heart of Spencer Bayston. The Lebanon, Indiana resident can now say he is a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series winner after taking the 33rd Annual Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic Presented by Racing Optics Tuesday in front of a packed stands at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant.

Attica was also the place where a then 18-year-old Bayston scored his first ever All Star Circuit of Champions victory in April 2017 in just his 15th time behind the wheel of a winged 410 sprint car.

Bayston, who just a few weeks ago was named the driver of the Mike McGhee #11, came into Attica with a ton of momentum after winning the $8,000 All Star event Saturday, July 10 at Sharon Speedway in Hartford Ohio. Tuesday’s victory in the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic Presented by Racing Optics was worth $10,000.

“This is so unbelievable. I can’t thank Mike and Kathy McGhee and Sam McGhee enough for this opportunity. It’s not only my first World of Outlaws win but the first for Sam McGhee Motorsports and Kevin Osmolski. I won my first winged sprint car race at Attica and now my first World of Outlaw race here. To win the Brad Doty Classic….what a cool event to honor a great man. This is a day I will never forget,” said Bayston beside his Mike McGhee & Associates, XYZ Machining, Champion Oil, FK Rod Ends backed #11.

“I had decided I didn’t want to race all that much anymore. Rides were hard to come by and I enjoyed being around my family. Then this opportunity came about and it’s just been a blast,” added Bayston.

Logan Schuchart and Tyler Courtney brought the field to green for the 40-lap feature with Schuchart edging out Courtney for the lead while Brad Sweet, Bayston and Cory Eliason gave chase. The race was plagued early with cautions with the first flying on lap two when Kyle Larson stopped. Two laps later just after Courtney drove into the lead another caution flew.

While battling for the lead on lap six Schuchart and Courtney nearly got together with Courtney spinning. A red on lap seven showed the running order Schuchart, Bayston, Sweet, Eliason, James McFadden, Carson Macedo and Sheldon Haudenschild. Bayston wasted little time showing how great his car was as he blasted into the lead on the restart.

While Bayston pulled away, the battle for seconds was intense involving Eliason, Sweet and Schuchart. Bayston raced into lapped traffic on lap 18 and that allowed Sweet to close. Eliason’s great run at the front came to an end on lap 23 when he slid off the high side of the track. When the green flew Bayston could not shake Sweet as Macedo moved in to challenge as well.

A final caution with 10 laps to go gave Bayston clean air and a clear track. He immediately jumped to the thin cushion and drove away for the win over Sweet, Macedo, Donny Schatz who started 22nd and Schuchart.

Bayston became the 25th different winner of the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic Presented by Racing Optics.

Attica Raceway Park will get back to action Friday, July 23 on Baumann Auto Group/NAPA Auto Parts/Advanced Drainage Systems Night with the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group, the Dirt Nerds Podcast/Propane.com UMP Late Models as part of the Attica/Oakshade Raceway Challenge Series and the NAPA of Bryan 305 AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales.

Holmes, Wauge, And Braaten Conquer July 10th Prestige Excavation Night At SOS

By Stephanie Deatherage

 White City, Oregon- Southern Oregon Speedway was on tap for Prestige Excavation Night on Saturday, July 10th. The White City clay oval had three divisions in attendance, including two Speedway Motors IMCA Weekly Racing program classes. They included the World Famous Autos Limited Sprints, Sweet Tea IMCA Modifieds, and Dusty's Transmissions IMCA Northern Sport Mods.

Jacksonville teenager Carly Holmes hit pay dirt in the World Famous Autos Sprint Car main event. It is the young lady's first career victory, and she is the second winner in as many races at Southern Oregon. The other victor earlier in the campaign was her older brother, Tanner.

Central Point's Jake Wheeler came across the line in second, followed by Bailey Hibbard, from Medford, in third. Medford teenager Enrique Jamie was credited with fourth over fifth finishing Dave Hibbard, of Medford and Bailey's father.

The trend of different winners carried over in the Sweet Tea IMCA Modifieds. Mark Wauge opened up his 2021 winning account by becoming the third driver to grace victory lane in as many shows. The Medford native collected his first triumph in an IMCA Modified since May 27th, 2018, at Siskiyou Golden Speedway in Yreka, California. He is also the newest chauffeur to join the winner's table in KMJ Performance Oregon State and Shaw Race Cars Western Region competition.

Albert Gill, from Central Point, was a respectable runner-up over the third-place finisher Jesse Bailey, also of Central Point. Medford's James Welshonse and Klamath Falls pilot Jeremy Ohlde completed the top five finishing order in fourth and fifth.

Lastly, the Dusty's Transmissions IMCA Northern Sport Mods were the only division to see a familiar mount "park it" in the winner's circle. Jorddon Braaten, from Central Point, scored his third win of 2021 at Southern Oregon Speedway, fifth KMJ Performance Oregon State triumph, and overall on the season, his seventh victory. Braaten's most recent win came on July 3rd at Cottage Grove Speedway.

Brookings-based racer Matt Sanders and Yreka, California teenager Ryan Peery were second and third. Mike Medel, from Medford, collected fourth over fifth-place earner Wyatt Westfall, also of Medford.

Southern Oregon Speedway is slated for a pair of races on Friday, July 23rd, and Saturday, the 24th, for the Pacific Sport Mod Showdown. The Dusty's Transmissions IMCA Northern Sport Mods will be the headliner for both nights. Other Friday night divisions include the World Famous Autos Limited Sprints, Sweet Tea IMCA Modifieds, Mini Stocks, and Hornets. For Saturday evening, the only other class on the card will be the Dwarf Cars. For more information, be sure and log on to the track website or Facebook page.

 

 

Jason Martin Crowned Wheat Shocker Nationals Champion with United Rebel Sprint Series

HAYS, Kansas (July 11, 2021) – Twenty-two cars checked in for competition for the Wheat Shocker Nationals finale on Sunday with the Drive to Zero POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series Presented by Mel Hambelton Ford Racing. It was Lincoln, Nebraska’s Jason Martin putting on a dominating performance and cashing in on the night’s $2,000 top prize.

The front row of Sunday’s 25-lap feature event was composed of Jason Martin and Steven Richardson, who were the top finishers of the pole dash. Jason Martin jumped to the early lead with Luke Cranston and Zach Blurton trailing by about a second for the first five laps. On lap eight, Martin began navigating traffic, stretching the race lead.

Saturday’s feature winner from Arcadia, Oklahoma, Ty Williams, maintained the fourth position until lap ten, when Taylor Velasquez made a move to obtain the position. It wasn’t until lap sixteen when Williams reclaimed the fourth position.

On lap 22, Blurton made a pass around Cranston to take over the runner-up position. Martin went on to claim the victory by nearly four seconds, Blurton second, and Cranston holding onto the final podium finisher in third. Ty Williams and Jeremy Huish completed the top five, while Velasquez, Koby Walters, Jordan Knight, Jed Werner, and Kyler Johnson completed the top ten.

Heat race competition was won by Jed Werner and Taylor Velasquez. Connor Atkinson claimed the Keizer Aluminum Wheels hard-charger, advancing five positions to finish sixteenth.

Garrett Bard Wins Third Straight

Garrett Bard continued his mid-season resurgence Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway, scoring a convincing feature win for this third PA Sprint Series victory in a row.

It also was his second victory at Selinsgrove in six days, and he has a Laurel Highlands Sprint Series win at Clinton County Speedway during his PASS streak, giving him four IMCA/RaceSaver wins in the last three weekends. He took an earlier PASS win at Selinsgrove in May.

The Wells Tannery driver’s CG Racing Engines/Barnett Self Storage/Environmental Earth Tech #95 crossed under the checkered flag 3.261 seconds ahead of Myerstown’s “Nitro Nick” Sweigart, who edged Sinking Spring’s Kassidy Kreitz by less than half a second.

The last two positions in the top five were even closer, with Derek Hauck of Allenwood taking the fourth spot by .0056 seconds in a side-by-side finish with Dom Melair of Warrington.

Doug Dodson, Devin Adams, Kenny Heffner, Ken Duke Jr. and Justin Mills completed the top 10.

“We really started getting it going about three weeks ago,” Bard said in victory lane. “We’ve been getting lucky: Sydney’s been drawing good (starting position) pills, Dad’s been getting the car right every night, and it’s just a blast to drive right now.”

Bard was able to get past outside front-row starter Branstin Shue and challenge polesitter Nick Sweigart on the inside for the early lead.

“As soon as I saw Nick was going high, I knew I was going down to the bottom,” he said.

He added that he gave their duel an extra straightaway to make sure he had room to slide up in front of the #8. Then traffic quickly became an issue in a race that went green for all 20 laps.

“I got to traffic in about six laps,” he said, “and I’m like, ‘Do I really want a caution (and a clear track)?’ But I just wanted to go, because this car feels so great now. (It was) a lot of traffic, but I feel like I got through them really good, so I was just happy, and I wanted it to stay green the rest of the way.”

Heat races for the 37-car field went to Bard, Dodson, Heffner and Josh Spicer, with Logan Spahr, in only his second PASS start, taking the 15-car B-Main.

The first heat had a crash between Christian Rumsey and Tyler Snook at the checkered flag as they were battling for a qualifying spot. Snook had to withdraw from the feature due to the damage to his car. Rumsey subsequently was disqualified for being light at the scales, but he corrected that problem and qualified through the B-Main.

Kruz Kepner was the night’s hard charger, coming from 23rd starting position to 13th at the finish. Adams and Duke each picked up six spots in the nonstop race.

This weekend PASS returns to Port Royal Speedway for another Open Wheel Madness program. The 410 sprints and wingless super sportsman cars also will be featured. The PASS sprinters will run qualifying events and a 20-lap feature, and another strong field of entries is expected.

Forte, Williamson, Luckman, Henry, Osborne, And Dickenson Gets Cottage Grove Wins During Ladies Night
By Stephanie Deatherage
Cottage Grove, Oregon- Saturday, July 10th, was Ladies Night at Cottage Grove Speedway. The historical -mile clay oval had six divisions on hand, including three Speedway Motors IMCA Weekly Racing program classes. They included the Todd’s Auto Body Sprints, IMCA Modifieds, Late Models, Royalty Core IMCA Northern Sport Mods, Street Stocks, and IMCA Sport Compacts.

In the Todd’s Auto Body Sprint Car feature, Tyler Thompson took control on the opening start. The Harrisburg pilot, racing for car owner Brian Crockett, stayed there until mechanical problems sidelined him on lap three. Sutherlin’s Pat Desbiens took over control of the top place position. Desbiens remained there until the sixth trip past the flag stand.

The leader of lap six was Junction City veteran Shane Forte. Forte checked out from the rest of the field and went on to win his first feature of 2021 at CGS. He is the ninth winner in eleven shows at the track.

Pat Desbiens was a respectable second, followed by Roseburg teenager Brenden McMaster in the Vern Scevers owned mount, in third. Tim Minter, from Cottage Grove, was scored fourth while fifth went to Dundee’s Justen McConville.

Steven Sturdevant paced the field for the majority of the IMCA Modified main event. The Springfield chauffeur paced the field by a healthy margin until a late caution bunched everyone up. Sturdevant came under some heavy fire on the restart and eventually was overtaken by Jesse Williamson on lap eighteen.

Williamson ran off into the sunset the rest of the distance to scored his second win of the 2021 campaign. It is also his second consecutive victory in Cottage Grove, KMJ Performance Oregon State, and Shaw Race Cars Western Region competition.

Otis teenager Eston Whisler came across the wire in second over third, finishing Steven Sturdevant. Albany’s Matthew Drager and Jake Mayden, from Springfield, were fourth and fifth.

The Late Model class went into Saturday night with there yet to be a repeat winner in feature action. Scio’s Rob Campos paraded the field around on lap one only to be passed the second circuit by Preston Luckman. Luckman, from Coos Bay, received pressure late in the race with just a few laps to go, only for a caution to come out.

Preston would master the restart and collected his first win at Cottage Grove this season. He makes it seven different drivers in as many Late Model races that have won at CGS in 2021. Jimmy Whisler, from Otis, was the runner-up while third at the line being Randy Barley, from Albany. Rob Campos ended his evening in fourth over Eugene’s Chuck Christian, who got fifth.

K.C. Scott took control of the Royalty Core IMCA Northern Sport Mods field at the drop of the first green flag. Scott, of Springfield, remained the pacesetter until lap five. After that, Roseburg’s Jordan Henry was the new driver to pace the competition.

Henry would experience several slowdowns due to cautions, which put him under a massive amount of pressure to keep his lead on the restarts. Five total stoppages occurred in the first thirteen trips around the track. Despite the yellows, Jordan Henry kept his composure and kept blazing the trail even though he briefly lost the lead on one occasion but was rescued by a stoppage.

Jordan Henry held on to win his first career feature victory at Cottage Grove Speedway and in KMJ Performance Oregon State action. Henry is the seventh winner in thirteen events at “The Grove” in 2021.

Dustin Comer of Springfield and Creswell’s Ray Bloom were second and third. Prescott Valley, Arizona pilot Timothy Allerding posted a fourth-place result while Springfield’s Daniel Ray wrapped up the top five in fifth.

For the Street Stocks, Dexter-based driver Taunton Swaim led the opening legs. However, Graig Osborne overtook Swaim on the eighth circuit and didn’t look back once he obtained the position. Osborne, of Creswell, dominated the rest of the distance to win his fifth Street Stock win at Cottage Grove this season.

Taunton Swaim held on to second, with third being credited to Troy Chamberlain from Junction City. Keizer’s Anthony Prather and Mike Swaim, from Dexter, were the balance of the top five finishers in fourth and fifth.

Lastly, the IMCA Sport Compacts had a thriller of a race. Cottage Grove’s Kerry Cooper took the reigns on in the first few laps of the feature. Andrew Langan maneuvered his way around Cooper by lap five. However, by the time lap traffic came around Langan, of Jasper and in the Randy Kuhl entry, tried to get by the slower cars but was in the process of getting passed by Bradley Martin.

Martin, from Dexter, shot the gap to get by Langan, but the two cars briefly got together, resulting in Martin getting upside down. On the restart, Langan could not continue for much longer as he was down power due to damage sustained from the earlier incident. Roseburg’s Ryan Dickenson obtained first place by the completion of the fourteenth circuit.

Dickenson conquered the field for the first time in Cottage Grove competition in 2021 and KMJ Performance Oregon State action. The IMCA Sport Compacts have had ten races with five different victors. Opie Donaldson, from Dexter, wound up second, with third going to Kerry Cooper. Rex Eckley, also from Dexter, and Cottage Grove’s Tiffany Towns put in fourth and fifth place efforts.

Cottage Grove Speedway returns to racing on Friday, July 16th, and Saturday, the 17th, for the final two rounds of the 2021 Speedweek Northwest for 360 Sprints. Support divisions on Friday are IMCA Modifieds and IMCA Sport Compacts, while Saturday is IMCA Modifieds and Street Stocks. For more information, log on to the track website or Facebook page.


 

Henderson, Ryan and Steuerwald Come Up Big on Big Frig Night at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (July 11, 2021) - Justin Henderson, Taylor Ryan and Matt Steuerwald topped the action at Huset's Speedway on Sunday evening during Big Frig Night.

Henderson led all but one lap to capture the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association and Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig feature triumph. It marked his third trip to Victory Lane at the track this year and his second with the NOSA Series. The result also placed him back into the lead in the track's championship standings.

Henderson rocketed to the lead thanks to a strong run on the top lane of the track to start the 25-lap A Main. However, disaster nearly struck on Lap 10 as Henderson got into the wall in turns one and two trying to avoid a car that was sideways. The contact bent a tie rod on Henderson's sprint car.

"It makes the car a lot different after that," he said. "I had to work for it tonight."

While Henderson continued to lead, traffic made a difference just after the midpoint of the race. Riley Goodno powered into the lead on Lap 16 by using the bottom of turn four to his advantage, but Henderson pounded the outside lane and regained the top spot on the ensuing lap.

Jody Rosenboom worked the bottom lane to maneuver his way from eighth to second and he closed to the rear bumper of Henderson's car coming to the white flag, but Henderson ran a smooth last lap to win by 0.435 of a second.

"I was hoping for the best at the end and was holding on," Henderson said. "I was happy to hang on there. I was really happy to see one of my best buddies, Jody Rosenboom, run second."

Rosenboom's second-place showing was his best of the season at Huset's Speedway.

"Two less mistakes and I think I pass that car, too, but that's on me," he said pointing at Henderson's car in Victory Lane. "The guys gave me an amazing car tonight. I never had to go to the top because it was too good on the bottom. Hats off to my guys for a great race car. That was fun. It's just great to know we can run with these guys."

Brooke Tatnell was third with Goodno placing fourth. Carson McCarl, who entered the night with the points lead, earned a fifth-place result. Polesitter Austin McCarl rallied from 21st to sixth after a flat tire forced him to the pits on Lap 5.

Henderson set quick time to start the night before Goodno, Austin McCarl and Jack Dover scored heat race wins.

Ryan led the distance in the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series main event to capture his first career victory at Huset's Speedway, becoming the seventh different winner in eight races this season.

Lincoln Drewis was on the rear of Ryan throughout most of the 20-lap race, which never featured the leader battling traffic. Ryan's margin of victory was 0.599 of a second as he cruised around the bottom lane of the dirt oval.

"Just get in the way," he said of his strategy. "I can't believe it."

The race was halted on the opening lap when Blaine Stegenga got upside down in turn one. However, it went green to checkered the rest of the way. Jacob Hughes placed third - less than one second behind Ryan - with Elliot Amdahl fourth and Mike Moore fifth.

John Lambertz, Ryan, Drewis and Bayley Ballenger each won a heat race. Ryan Bickett was the B Main winner.

The wildest feature of the night came in the Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks division as Steuerwald edged points leader Cory Yeigh, who at one point was running at the back of the field, by 0.076 of a second. It marked Steuerwald's first win at Huset's Speedway since August 2012.

"You know what that means, I'm old," he quipped in Victory Lane. "I was trying to just change it up enough to keep (Yeigh) guessing. I gotta do what I gotta do to get a win. That guy's fast this year."

Jim Pruett led the first 10 laps before Steuerwald took the top spot on Lap 11. Pruett regained the lead on the following lap, but he spun in turns one and two the next time around. That gave the lead to Steuerwald, who held off Colby Klaassen for most of the second half of the 20-lap feature before Yeigh took over second place with three laps to go.

Yeigh, who brought out the first of eight cautions during the race on Lap 2, had to restart at the rear of the field following contact in turns one and two. He cracked the top 10 on Lap 3 and the top five on Lap 10. Yeigh climbed to third on Lap 16 before inheriting the runner-up position on Lap 18 when Klaassen spun. The second-place finish snapped Yeigh's three-race winning streak at Huset's Speedway.

Tim Dann, Dan Jensen and Brandon Ferguson rounded out the top five, respectively.

Pruett and JJ Zebell were the heat race winners.

The next event at Huset's Speedway is Sunday for Hall of Fame Night presented by Spartan ER 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.

POIRIER POSTS FIRST KNIGHTS OF THUNDER SPRINT CAR SERIES WIN
Quebec Driver Wins First Event in New Sprint Car Series
 

By Tommy Goudge

THOROLD, Ont. (July 10, 2021) – Jordan Poirier made the long trip from Quebec worth it at Merrittville Speedway by winning the first ever Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car feature on Saturday night.

Aaron Turkey and Jim Huppunen were on the front row for the first A-Main in Knights of Thunder history, and Huppunen took the early lead in search of another Merrittville win. Poirier quickly moved up from fourth on the grid to challenge Huppunen for the lead, and made the winning move on lap seven as the two drivers raced through traffic; many of the cars Huppunen was trying to lap were running in his preferred groove on the low side of the track, while Poirier was running through the middle and higher side of the track.

Poirier was able to open a commanding lead, but Huppunen began a comeback attempt as Poirier took his turn picking through traffic. Despite a tricky and slick track surface, the race went the 25 lap distance without a yellow flag and Poirier was able to get clear of the traffic to lock down the victory. Huppunen settled for the runner-up spot, followed by Mack DeMan, Josh Hansen, and Cory Turner.

“It feels really good,” exclaimed the jubilant Poirier afterwards. “It was a long offseason; I felt like I was in my prime by the end last year, so to win the first one of the Knights of Thunder we’re really happy. Thanks for Pinty’s for putting this on. It’s awesome to have a Canadian tour.

“The track was insane,” continued Poirier. “I was surprised that I was able to cross the track like (uncle) Steve used to do, so I have to give it to him. I was searching at the beginning. I was looking at (Huppunen) and he was really good exiting (turn) four but I felt like the cushion was really good exiting the corner and all the lap cars were on the inside.”

Huppunen was relatively happy with a runner-up finish to start the season, especially after running most of the race without brakes.

“I saw Jordan get by me there and I think he threw something at my car because I lost the rear caliper so I had no brakes the rest of the race,” joked Huppunen after the race. “It was a tough go but I’ve got to thank Glenn Styres for having me in his car for another year.”

DeMan methodically moved through the field and felt he may have been able to challenge Huppunen and Poirier if the race hadn’t gone caution-free.

“It’s tough starting seventh, but that’s the way the redraw goes,” lamented DeMan. “Really needed a caution there, but the car was coming on. The car just kept getting better and better and I started to catch (Huppunen) and I saw Jordan way up ahead and I was like ‘We’re gonna need a yellow’ but just great redemption for me and my team; last year we ran one lap and destroyed the car so it’s just good to have the car roll in the trailer and finish third.”

Shone Evans, Aaron Turkey, row eleven starter Ryan Turner, DJ Christie, and Action Sprint Tour winner Jacob Dykstra rounded out the top ten. Heat race wins were claimed by Jordan Poirier, Cory Turner, and Aaron Turkey. The only serious incident of the evening occurred in heat race action when Mikey Kruchka and Mack DeMan tangled on the frontstretch; Kruchka’s car careened into the wall after the contact and did enough damage to prevent Kruchka from starting the feature.

The Knights of Thunder series will next be in action on Saturday, July 24 at Brighton Speedway. Visit www.knightsofthunder.com and www.brightonspeedway.ca for more information.

DYKSTRA TAKES ACTION SPRINT TOUR OPENER AT MERRITTVILLE

By Tommy Goudge

THOROLD, Ont. (July 10, 2021) – Jacob Dykstra moved into a tie atop the all-time Action Sprint Tour win list with a thrilling victory at Merrittville Speedway on Saturday night.

Allan Downey and Nick Sheridan were on the front row for the first AST Crate Sprint Car event of 2021, and Downey opened up an early lead while several drivers began to charge to the front from deep in the pack. Downey was working to get through slower traffic when Dale Curran spun to bring out a yellow flag with 11 laps complete. Dykstra was up to second for the restart after starting eighth, and drove into the lead shortly thereafter.

Dykstra’s lead was short-lived however, as Lucas Smith had used the tricky outside groove to charge through the field from 14th on the grid. Smith and Dykstra swapped the lead several times, but Dykstra was the leader at the stripe when the second yellow flag of the race appeared for a spin by Dave McKnight with 19 laps complete.

Dykstra was able to open a gap on the restart before Smith reeled him back in, but Dykstra stayed ahead to claim his fifth career AST win and tie Josh Hansen atop the all-time list. Smith settled for the runner-up spot, followed by Nick Sheridan, row six starter Jesse Costa, and Steven Beckett.

“I felt pretty strong on the bottom and I was able to roll through (turns) one and two pretty well,” observed Dykstra in victory lane. “I saw (Smith) coming around me and thought I should try it, but I just didn’t like it; I wasn’t too comfortable so went back to the bottom, kind of rolled the middle and kept the wheelspin to a minimum.”

Row eleven starter Brett Stratford, Downey, Darren Dryden, DJ Christie, and Terry Baker rounded out the top ten. Heat race wins were claimed by Steven Beckett, Nick Sheridan, Jacob Dykstra, and DJ Christie, while Derek Miller won the B-Main.

SPENCER BAYSTON & CHAD BRACHMANN BECOME THE LATEST 1ST TIME "LOU BLANEY MEMORIAL" VICTORS AT SHARON; BAYSTON'S CAREER 1ST SHARON WIN WORTH $8000 WITH THE ALL STAR SPRINTS WHILE BRACHMANN EARNS $2000 FOR WINNING BRP MOD TOUR

By Mike Leone

July 10, 2021


(Hartford, OH)…Sharon Speedway hosted the 13th annual "Lou Blaney Memorial" presented by Premier Pallet and the Ryan Blaney Family Foundation on Saturday night. A huge crowd was on hand as Spencer Bayston (FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil One) and Chad Brachmann (BRP Mod Tour for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Big-Block Modifieds) celebrated in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane with not only their first event wins, but first career Sharon triumphs. Seventy-seven cars were on hand for the two-division show that raised approximately $15,000 for the Alzheimer's Association through the auctions and benefit raffle.

Spencer Bayston passed George Hobaugh for the lead on lap 13 then fended off a big slide job attempt by Tyler Courtney on lap 29 to become the amazing 12th different "Lou Blaney Memorial" victor in 13 events! Bayston earned $8,000 for the 30-lap All Star-sanctioned victory as he became the seventh different "410" Sprint Car winner in as many races in 2021 at Sharon.

"That was a little too close for comfort," acknowledged the 22-year-old Lebanon, Indiana racer. "He (Hobaugh) kept floating up on the straightaways and I felt like I didn't have enough corner speed to get next to him on exit. I'm just happy to get it done as that was a little harder than it needed to be. The throttle was hanging at 3000 RPM's so under caution I was having to hold it by hand. I was carrying too much throttle through the corners, but all in all we got it done and we're in victory lane. This should have been my second win as I felt like I gave one away at Muskingum. Thank you to everyone for coming out. This is such a cool event to be part of. I don't know what the racing was like behind me, but I was having the time of my life."

For the second straight All Star show at Sharon, local racer George Hobaugh started on the front row thanks to a dash victory, but this time charged into the lead with Cap Henry, Dave Blaney, Bayston, and Tim Shaffer in tow. Hobaugh, who won at Sharon on May 15, quickly pulled away on lap two, while it was a three-car battle for second. Blaney made the pass of Henry for second on lap three and began to close on Hobaugh one late later. By lap six, Blaney caught Hobaugh and the two were in traffic on lap seven. Hobaugh made some nice moves and stretched out his lead again on lap eight, while Bayston passed Henry for third. Ninth starting Tyler Courtney also got by Henry for fourth on lap nine.

A spin by Tim Shaffer halted action for the first time with 10 laps scored. When racing resumed, Bayston powered around Blaney for second then went after Hobaugh. Bayston got a big run off the top of turn four on lap 12 and put a big move on Hobaugh entering turn one to make the slider stick. Hobaugh's excellent run ended when he clipped an infield tire and flipped with 16 laps scored. He was okay. When racing resumed, Blaney went low to try and get under Bayston but also caught an infield tire, which caused front end damage and ended his night and shot at three wins in his father's memorial.

With Hobaugh and Blaney out of the event, Courtney found himself in second with Cory Eliason third. Bayston caught traffic on lap 23 as Courtney, the All Stars' points leader, closed. On lap 29, Courtney threw a big slider on Bayston in turn two, but the move didn't stick as Courtney slapped the fence and suffered a flat tire. Bayston then went unchallenged for his fourth career All Star win, but first in the Mike McGhee and Associates #11.

Eighth starting Eliason crossed the finish in second. "Sharon Speedway was definitely in its prime tonight," expressed the Visalia, California racer. "It was pretty badass. We could run the middle. It's unfortunate that Dave (Blaney) broke, but fortunate for me because I probably didn't have a chance to get going forward when I saw him go to the bottom. He's so good around here at that speed down there; I can't do that. I'm more of a top guy. That opened the door and allowed me to pressure Sunshine (Courtney) a bit. He went hard at Spencer. I thought we could have had a good race for the lead if we could have stayed in traffic. Hopefully we can come back tomorrow because we had a fast hot rod."

Bill Balog had another strong Sharon run in third. Thirteenth starting Danny Dietrich, who won the June 15 Ohio Speedweek event, passed Cap Henry for fifth on lap 22 then was able to get by the slowing Courtney to finish fourth. Courtney limped across the finish in fifth with a blown tire. Brent Marks charged from 21st to sixth as Justin Peck, Zeb Wise, Henry, and Hunter Schuerenberg completed the top 10. Sye Lynch was the top local finisher in 11th.

Marks set fast time overall in qualifying against the 43-car field with a lap of 14.733. Peck, Eliason, Hobaugh, Lynch, and Skylar Gee won the heat races. Henry and Hobaugh copped the twin dashes to earn front row starting spots. Lee Jacobs was victorious in the C main, while Marks won the B main.

Eleventh starting Chad Brachmann went fourth to first on a lap 20 restart and then went unchallenged to the 35-lap BRP Tour victory for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Big-Block Modifieds, worth $2,000. Brachmann became the 11th different "Lou Blaney Memorial" winner in 13 years. Brachmann gave New York racers their third event win in the last four years and fourth all-time joining Jack Johnson, Mike Maresca, and Erick Rudolph.

"The breaks fell my way tonight but my car was really good," stated the 46-year-old Sanborn, New York racer. "I have to tip my hat to my dad, brother, Andrew and Mike. I've been kind of rough on them lately. We've been struggling. We finally got the car right tonight and I did my part. I'll tell you what, this place is awesome when it's smooth. I've been here when it's been rough and choppy. This was great tonight. I'd rather have it like this any day of the week. This is my first win at Sharon and we've come here a bunch of times so this is pretty cool. It's an honor to be here in the same category as all of the other guys that have won this race- especially for a great man."

RUSH Sportsman Modified standout Chas Wolbert led the opening lap driving Ryan Riffe's #1x "358" Small-Block Modified for the first time, but his lead lasted only a lap as New York's Kyle Inman slipped under Wolbert to lead lap two. Inman began to pull away on lap four and by the time he caught traffic on lap 14 his lead stretched out to a 2.5-second advantage over Wolbert.

On lap 20, Wolbert and New York racer Greg Martin made contact with Wolbert spinning and Martin suffering a flat tire as he had to yield second place. With Wolbert and Martin out of the mix, Brachmann lined up fourth on the double file restart and would power around the outside past Rex King, Jr., Kevin Hoffman, and Inman for the winning move. Three cautions were all that slowed Brachmann's run to the finish in his Sunflowers of Sanborn/Niagara Lawn & Garden Equipment-sponsored #3 as he took the checkered flag first by a margin 3.814 seconds.

Inman, who was making his first Sharon start since running an E-Mod at the track 10 years ago, was a solid second as he fended off 27-time track winner, Rex King, Jr., for second. Jeremiah Shingledecker charged from 13th to finish fourth as he was right on Inman and King, Jr. at the finish. Rex King made his way from 17th to finish fifth.

Sixth through 10th were Brad Rapp, Kyle Fink, Brian Swartzlander, Garrett Krummert, and Martin, who came from the tail after his flat tire. Heat winners over the 34-car field were Wolbert, Krummert, King, Jr., and Dave Murdick. The last chance B main was won by Rick Regalski, Jr.

Sunday's Justin Snyder's "Salute to the Troops" event for the All Stars and Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars was rained out. Coming up next Saturday night (July 17) will be the inaugural "Bill Forney Memorial" featuring the Pace Performance RUSH Late Models in a $3,199 to-win Flynn's Tire/Born2Run Lubricants Touring Series event plus the Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars, Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, and the HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds.

Smith Takes Midseason Championship Win

7/10/21

Alger, WA – With a packed house on hand for Les Schwab Midseason Championship night, Cam Smith got his program back on track Saturday night at Skagit Speedway with a wire-to-wire win in the Budweiser 360 Sprints. Other feature winners were Greg Hamilton, Rick Smith and Mike Macpherson.

Smith sat on the outside of the front row for the start of the feature and took full advantage, jumping to an early lead and setting a blistering pace as he ran towards the back of the field. Fellow front row starter Chase Goetz closed in on him a few times, but never to where he could make a big run on Smith, who took the victory ahead of Colton Heath and Goetz. Heath and Goetz won the heats while Jason Solwold was fast time.

18 cars contested the main for the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints. Greg Hamilton ended up taking the win, making smart moves in traffic to hold off the field for his first victory in the Bill Rude owned car. Justin Youngquist raced from 8th to 2nd while Eric Turner was third. Jesson Jacobson was fast time and heat wins went to Youngquist, Hamiliton and Cory Swatzina.

The Skagit Aggregates Modifieds put on an entertaining main event, with Rick Smith coming to win his third feature of the year. Craig Moore had held the lead, but a series of cautions and restarts let Smith work his way up the field and have a decent shot at Moore just beyond the halfway point of the main. Using the high groove, Smith powered past Moore and on to the eventual win, with Moore settling for second and Adam Holtrop running third. Heat race winners were Kyler Moore and Smith.

“Big Money” Mike Macpherson continued his roll in the Outlaw Tuner division with another wire to wire main event win. Macpherson held off a hard charging Howard Vos late to secure the win, with Vos taking second and Jon Gunderson third. Jon Edwards won the first heat race, while Macpherson won heat 2.

Ty Williams Victorious at Wheat Shocker Nationals Preliminary Night with United Rebel Sprint Series

HAYS, Kansas (July 10, 2021) – Twenty-four cars checked in for night one of Wheat Shocker Nationals competition with the Drive to Zero POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series Presented by Mel Hambelton Ford Racing on Saturday. A dicey RPM Speedway gave fans spectacular racing action. Arcadia, Oklahoma’s Ty Williams claimed the preliminary night victory, his third win of the season in series competition.

Ty Williams and Luke Cranston led the field to the green for the 20-lap feature event. Williams quickly jumped to the lead with Cranston and Jordan Knight following, while hard-charger Jason Martin began his march forward through the field. Jeremy Huish, Zach Blurton, and Martin battled for the fourth position. A red flew over competitors with eight laps in the books.

The restart saw Luke Cranston grabbing the lead, with Williams maintaining second. Knight fell back to fifth, allowing Jeremy Huish to move into third and Jason Martin to fourth. Blurton then moved into fifth ahead of Knight before the caution flew with five laps to go.

Cranston took off with the race lead on the restart, again with Williams following closely. Taylor Velasquez and Knight battled for the sixth, and final, lock-in to Sunday’s feature event, but red would again fly over competition.

With four laps remaining, Ty Williams regained the race lead ahead of Cranston and Huish. The final lap saw Martin moving into third. Ty Williams went on to claim his third win of the season with the United Rebel Sprint Series. Luke Cranston and Jason Martin rounded out the podium, with Jeremy Huish, Zach Blurton, and Steven Richardson locking into the feature event for Sunday’s Wheat Shocker Nationals finale.

CLARK HANGS ON FOR RACESAVER SPRINT WIN; MARTIN CRUISES TO 4th WCS CHECKERED FLAG; MOORE RALLIES FOR 7th VICTORY; HOLMES GOES TO VICTORY LANE FOR 2nd TIME

Orrville, Ohio

Saturday, July 10, 2021

By Mike Swanger

It was another action packed night of racing at Wayne County Speedway Saturday night as the Ohio Thunder Racesaver Sprints were joined by the Indiana Racesaver Sprints and the Allegheny Sprint Tour Sprinters as they were chasing after the $1500 to win feature that was increased thanks to Pine Tree Towing & Recovery. Monty Ferriera grabbed the lead from his outside front row position until a lap three red stopped the action when Austin Powell, Jim Morris and Kyle Kruger all tangled in turn four that blocked the track as Jake Hesson went to the infield , ending his night as Powell was the only one able to continue. Ferriera continued with the lead as Justin Clark moved into second on the restart. Another red flag waved on lap 8 as Caleb Erwin was trying to get off the track but hit a retaining tire on the front stretch and flopped over on his side. As the race went back to green, Clark would start to put the pressure on Ferriera for the lead as Dustin Stroup and fast qualifier Jacob Gomola dueled for third. Clark found the opening he needed coming out of turn two on the highside to swipe the lead away from Ferriera on lap 11. Two laps later, Stroup motored past Ferriera for second and closed in on Clark. Three cautions between laps 14 and 18 for spun cars kept the field bunched together and on the restart of lap 18, Stroup wrestled the lead away from Clark but the Hamersville driver reclaimed the top spot on the next circuit. The two cars would stay close together for the lead as they pulled away from the rest of the field. As the white flag waved, Clark and Stroup got together in turn two as both hit the wall and Stroup rolled over as Clark was able to continue as the red flag appeared. Clark and his Walker Performance, Slicker Graphics and State Farm Insurance/Jason Dunn #78 was able to hold off Ferriera the final lap to collect his second win of the week end, winning at Dog Hollow Speedway the night before. Rob Felix, Austin Powell and Steve Cousins filled out the top five as Brandon McClain, Clark and Stroup won the heats with Lewie Christian topping the last chance race.

Clark did not have the night he wanted after winning the last chance race in the Pine Tree Towing & Recovery Sprint feature as a flat tire just as the green waved put him to the tail and as he was moving quickly through the field, he hit the dirt berm in turn 2 and went nose over tail three times on lap 4. Chris Myers set the pace for the first 4 circuits and then gave way to Broc Martin and from then on it would be a race to finish second. Chris Myers had his hands full with R J Jacobs and Tyler Street for second with Jamie Myers, Dean Jacobs and Andrew Palker racing for a top five spot. Street took third on lap 11 and hounded Myers for second until lap 15 when Street smacked the turn two wall and flipped, ending his run. After a lap 19 caution, Dean Jacobs slipped past Jamie Myers on the restart and on the next lap passed Chris Myers for second but by this time, Martin had dashed out to a big lead and the Orrville driver would take the Orrville Trucking, Chaser's Drive Thru and Guerne Heights Drive Inn #83m to a three second win over Jacobs. Chris and Jamie Myers finished third and fourth as Zach Ames ended with a season best fifth. Winning the heat races were Dean Jacobs, Martin and Ricky Peterson.

The CORBON Ammunition Modifieds started their evening out on the wild side as heat race action saw Nathon Loney and Kyle Moore get together in turn two fighting for the lead and damaging both cars as Moore would be able to fix his but Loney was done for the night. In the feature, Chad Coleman took the lead from his pole position for the first two laps before fellow front row starter Casey Butler took over. Butler's time out front only lasted one lap as heat winner Scott Peltz took over as Moore moved into second on lap six from his 7th starting spot. The Mansfield driver spent the next three laps looking for an opening to move past Peltz. That move would come on lap nine when Moore and his Kepling Flooring, Arnold Motorsports and Kryptonite Racecars #1* took to the highside of turn two and motored past Peltz for the lead. Peltz stayed close but could not make a run back at Moore. Rounding out the top five were Mark Gardiner, Jeff Johnson and Coleman.

In the last four races for the McKenzie Concrete Super Stocks, Moore had won three of them and starting tonight off by setting a new track record of 19.217 seconds and winning his heat, he was looking for another win. Brandon Morrow secured the lead at the drop of the green and looked to be the one to beat. Strasburg's Paul Holmes would pull into second on lap three with Moore right behind him. Morrow would keep about a six car lenght lead as Holmes was trying to catch the leader and hold off Moore at the same time. Morrow would open the door for Holmes as on lap 13, Morrow would touch the turn two wall which affected the handling of the #c9 machine. With the white flag waving, both Holmes and Moore moved past the ailing Morrow and on the last lap, Holmes was able to fend off Moore for his second win of the year aboard the NewFast Racing #70. Chase Alexander finished fourth and Brian Stuhldreher finished fifth in his debut at 'Orrville's Historic Oval'.

Racer's were chaing the O'Reilly's Auto Parts 'Race to the Championship' points and also competing for more Contingency Connection 'Racers Rewards' prizes.

Next Saturday night, July 17th will be the Buckeye Late Model Speedweek race for the Don & Hans Gross Memorial with $3,000 going to the winner. The Modifieds, Super Stocks, Mini Stocks and the Mod Lites all will be in action as the Sprints take the night off. Gates will Open at 3 pm and racing at 7 pm

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 10, 2021– As the Plymouth Dirt Track Racing season eclipsed the half-way point, three drivers added to their 2021 A-main victory tallies, while another visited victory lane for the first time this year in main-event competition at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 10.

In the PDTR 360 Sprint Car A main, Waupun’s Will Gerritsearned his first 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty 360 Sprint Car A-main victory of the 2021 campaign.

Three-time and defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland notched his third 25-lap Sheboygan’s County 93.7 Late Model A-main victory of 2021.

2018 PDTR Grand National champion Matt Loehr of Dotyville claimed his second 25-lap Oostburg Automotive Grand National main-event win of the 2021 season, while Jonathan Hitsman of Sheboygan rolled to his second Cellcom B Mod A-main triumph of the year.

On the drop of the green flag of the 25-lap 360 Sprint Car A main, 2008 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Lance Fassbender of Burnett jumped into the lead from the pole position.

On lap 2, lone caution flag of the race appeared when PDTR 360 Sprint Car rookie Matt Rechek of Beaver Dam spun on the backstretch after making contact with Alex Pokorski of West Bend. Rechek was done for the night, while Pokorski went to the work area for repairs before returning to restart at the rear of the field.

Fassbender controlled the restart as Will Gerrits worked the high line to move up to second from his sixth starting spot on lap 3. Meanwhile, ninth starter Travis Arenz of Sheboygan Falls also rode the high groove of the smooth and slick track surface to seize third on lap 4.

On lap 6, Gerrits powered around Fassbender to take over the top spot exiting turn four, while Arenz slipped into second one lap later. As Arenz tested the high, middle and low lines in an attempt to close the gap on Gerrits, the leaders caught the rear of the field on lap 15.

Three laps later, Arenz moved in to challenge Gerrits for the lead with a daring low move in turn two. However, Gerrits successfully fended off Arenz’s spirited charge to maintain the top spot.

On lap 20, Arenz nearly lost control as his car spun sideways along the outside groove in turn four, which allowed the low-riding Fassbender to regain second. Meanwhile, out in front of the field, Gerrits skillfully maneuvered through lapped traffic to nail down his third career PDTR and Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car A-main victory.

Fassbender held on to finish second, Arenz was third, fourth starter Jack Vanderboom of Dousman took fourth and second starter Tyler Tischendorf of Waupaca rounded out the top five.

Justin Schmidt used his outside front row starting spot to outpower Late Model rookie Justin Green of Sheboygan Falls, who started on the pole, to grab the lead in turn one of the opening lap of the 25-lap PDTR Late Model A main.

The first of two caution flags appeared on lap 2 when 2016 PDTR Late Model champ Tim Buhler of Greenbush made contract with the turn four wall.

Schmidt bolted out into the lead on the restarter with Green and seventh starter Justin Ritchie of New London in tow. The second and final caution flag flew on lap 10 when Jayme Zidar of Greenfield spun in turn one.

On the restart, Schmidt bolted away again while Ritchie moved past Green into second and fifth starter Charlie Schmidt of Cedar Grove claimed third in the running order.

Justin Schmidt held firm control of the lead along the extreme inside groove of the third-mile clay oval until he got hung up behind a slower car for several laps, which allowed Ritchie to cut the gap significantly.

Ritchie closed to within striking distance on lap 22 before Schmidt maneuvered around the lapped car and extended his lead over the final three laps en route to his 16th career PDTR Late Model A-main win.

Ritchie had to settle for second, Green posted a career-best third place showing, Charlie Schmidt placed fourth and Turk Letizia of Milwaukee, who started eighth, finished fifth.

Polesitter Steven Weber of Plymouth grabbed the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap PDTR B Mod A main, while second starter Dick Hed of Plymouth and Matt Loehr, who started sixth, dueled for second in the early going.

Loehr moved into second on lap 2 before setting his sights firmly on the lead. On lap 3, Loehr used the high line to shoot past Weber into the lead in turn four.

Five laps later, 2019 PDTR Grand National champ Tyler Kulow of Plymouth moved up from his eighth starting spot to take second.

The first of two caution flags appeared on lap 8 when Derek Kaat of Plymouth spun in turn one. On the restart, two-time PDTR Grand National champ Don Sorce Jr. of West Allis used the high groove to move past Kulow into second from his seventh starting spot.

Kulow battled back to mount a spirited duel with the high-riding Sorce Jr. for the runner-up spot starting on lap 10 before the second and final caution flag appeared on lap 13 for a debris.

Kulow and Sorce Jr. reengaged in their heated duel for second following the restart as the tandem moved in to pressure Loehr for the season over the final 12 circuits.

In the closing laps, Loehr held strong to secure his eighth career PDTR Grand National A-main victory. Sorce Jr. finished second, Tyler Kulow placed third, Donny Kulow of Elkhart Lake, who started fifth, placed fourth and 10th starter Luke Scholten of Oostburg rounded out the top five.

Steve Lorier of Sheboygan Falls jumped into the lead of the 25-lap PDTR B Mod A main from the pole as Boltonville’s Brandon Knepprath, who started second, dueled with Grafton’s Rory Welch, who started third, for the runner-up spot.

Just as sixth starter Jonathan Hitsman was making his presence felt at the front of the field, the first of seven caution flags appeared on lap 4 for debris. Another caution flag was displayed on the ensuing restart for a five-car incident in turn two.

On the restart, Lorier maintained control of the lead as Welch and fifth starter Shane Long of Sheboygan Falls dueled for second starting on lap 4. The third caution flag was thrown on lap 6 for a two-car incident in turn four.

Following the restart, Hitsman made his march to the front primarily utilizing the outside groove. Hitsman worked his way into third on lap 8 before moving into second lap 11 and eventually powering around Lorier and into the lead on lap 14 exiting turn four.

After the fourth caution flag appeared on lap 17 for a two-car incident, Hitsman bolted out to a full-straightaway lead while ninth starter Gary Glander of Sheboygan Falls moved into second.

The fifth caution flag came out on lap 21 for a single-car spin and on the restart it was Spencer Long of Sheboygan Falls, who started 16th, who was turning heads and he seized second on lap 21.

The sixth caution period appeared on lap 22, which set up a battle between Spencer Long and Glander for second in the closing laps.

However, no one had anything for Hitsman as he pulled away to notch his second career PDTR B Mod A-main victory in a race that was flagged as complete following the seventh caution flag of the race for a single-car spin on the 25th and final lap.

Glander finished second, Spencer Long was third, Shane Long placed fourth and eighth starter Rick Kretschmann of Sheboygan Falls placed fifth.

Adam Miller of Plymouth won the 15-lap 360 Sprint Car B main.

Foos sweeps AFCS with Fremont win; Weaver notches 62nd career victory; McCaughey wins truck thriller

Saturday, July 10, 2021

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – DJ Foos swept the weekend for the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group, holding off a charging Craig Mintz to score the victory Saturday at Fremont Speedway after taking the win the previous night at Attica Raceway Park.

With his fourth win at Fremont, Foos now has six victories in 2021 and continues to lead the Fremont Speedway and AFCS point standings. The victory Saturday on Baumann Auto Group Night at Fremont is his 21st career win at the track.

“This Burmeister Racing 16 is on rails right now. I knew there towards the end I heard someone to the outside of me…I was really slowing down to hit the bottom so I kind of opened my entry a little and cruised through the middle. It feels so good. Stuart (Brubaker) was pretty far out there and I really needed that yellow. I wasn’t very good at the beginning but beginning doesn’t pay anything. Hats off to Fremont Speedway and what they do and all my sponsors, Burmeister Trophy, NAPA of Bryan…I forget to them but Duane Hancock does a lot for the AFCS that not everybody knows. This guy puts a lot of effort into making this series great and it pays well. Also thanks Crown Battery, Jet Express, All In Tent Rentals, Kistler Racing Products, Kistler Engines, CR Juices, Dave Story Equipment, Berryman Racing Shocks, Sonny’s Signs, Vantage Branding…I’m so grateful to be a part of this team. I asked the guys what the most amount of wins they’ve had in a season…they had six. So I’ve tied Sebetto (Brian) now and that’s quite an accomplishment. We have a lot more winning left in it. Momentum is on our side. My expectations are high and I think everyone else’s is. We have to keep digging because we know the 18 (Cole Macedo) will catch up with us,” said Foos.

Fremont’s Paul Weaver, a three time and defending 305 track champion, dominated the 25 lap Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint A-main, leading all 25 laps for his third win of the season at “The Track That Action Built.” It is Weaver’s 62 career win at the track, putting him into a tie with Gug Keegan for third on the track’s all-time win list. The win also pads Weaver’s lead in the NAPA of Bryan 305 AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales as he looks to repeat as the series champion.

“Gug Keegan was one of the greatest ever at Fremont. I’m just trying to finish my career with the 305s and have some fun. The biggest thing is keeping the tires underneath you. For 19 of the 25 laps I learned to lift at the flag stand and find that wet spot in turn two,” said Weaver of his B&B Drain Service, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Adkins Motorsports, Weaver Performance backed #1W.

In an action packed Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature Toledo’s Cory McCaughey fought with Jim Holcomb and Shawn Valenti the final five laps before scoring a narrow victory. It was his second of the season and seventh career win at Fremont.

“Holcomb….you can’t say enough about that guy…that’s a class act. Then look up at the board with three to go and see that pesky 7B (Valenti)….that’s not who I want to see right there. He’s also real classy. That guy wins a lot and everyone boos him but you should talk to him in the pits…you’d change your mind,” said McCaughey. “First and foremost I want to thank Mark Kachenmeister the truck owner, Ron Miller Race Cars…bad machines…that’s the top three in speeds tonight. Also DDH Farms, Great Lakes Doors, Blastmaster. Two years ago we lost a crew guy, Steve, polish guy we ran an Australian Pursuit for…that’s what the Polish victory lap was for,” said McCaughey in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.

Travis Philo jumped into the early lead of the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint A-main over Stuart Brubaker, Josh Turner, Craig Mintz, Foos and Landon LaLonde. Brubaker drove under Philo into the lead on lap five with LaLonde moving into third over Mintz, Ryan Broughton and Foos. Brubaker held a two second lead on lap nine when disaster struck for second running Philo who made contact with a lapped car and flipped; he was uninjured.

When the green flew Brubaker began building his lead again by nearly two seconds at the half-way point as Mintz and LaLonde battled hard for second. By lap 18 LaLonde was reeling in Brubaker with Foos taking third from Mintz. LaLonde’s great run ended when he clipped an infield tire with 10 laps to go.

On the ensuing restart Foos made his move, driving to Brubaker’s outside to take the lead just before a caution for a Chris Andrews spin. When the green flew Foos had his hands full with Brubaker and Mintz as Trey Jacobs moved into fourth. Mintz drove to the outside of Brubaker to take with six laps to go and closed on Foos.

Mintz was getting through turns three and four better than Foos and drove to the leader’s rear bumper lap after lap. Foos was able to hold off the challenge to take the win with Mintz, Brubaker, Jacobs and Broughton rounding out the top five.

Weaver grabbed the lead from his pole-starting position in the 305 A and pulled away as Matt Foos took second from John Ivy on the second circuit. Weaver’s nearly three second lead was wiped out for a caution on lap five. When the green flew Weaver once again pulled away from Foos with Brandon Moore, Ivy, Tyler Shullick, Shawn Valenti and Steve Rando giving chase.

Weaver made a fantastic move in lapped traffic, picking off three in one corner on lap 13 just before a caution flew. When the green flew again Weaver built up another 2.5 second lead only to see a caution come back out with eight laps to go. Each restart Weaver would quickly build a nearly three second lead over Foos with Shullick moving into third.

With three laps to go Weaver’s lead was three seconds as he drove away to the win over Foos, Shullick, Rando and 15th starter Alvin Roepke.

The 20-lap dirt truck feature was filled with cautions but when the green was out the action was fantastic. Jeff Babcock grabbed the open lap lead but Jim Holcomb took the top spot a lap later and had to continuously fend off challenges from McCaughey. Holcomb and McCaughey ran side by side for nearly half of the race before McCaughey took the lead on lap 16 while 11th starter Shawn Valenti moved into third.

Valenti would use a restart with three laps to go to grab second and apply pressure to McCaughey. Coming to the checkers Valenti tried to crowd McCaughey up the track but McCaughey carried too much momentum and took the win. Valenti, Holcomb, Dana Fry and Brad Mitten rounded out the top five.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, July 24 on Fort Ball Pizza Palace Night with the AFCS 410 Sprints ($4,000 to win), AFCS 305 Sprints ($1,000 to win) and the dirt trucks in action.

Weir Wins Sprint Feature; Crum Tops USAC Midget Cup;

Losh; Hobbs and Tatman Are Other Big Winners

At Gas City I-69 Speedway Friday Night

GAS CITY, Ind., July 10 – Scotty Weir of Marion, Ind., became the first two-time non-wing sprint car feature winner this year at Gas City I-69 Speedway during the “Beach Night Bash” show Friday night. The pits were brimming with 33 sprint cars and a total of 119 race cars in all for the five-division program that was enjoyed by the track’s largest crowd so far this year.

Chance Crum of Snohomish, Wash. posted his first career USAC Midwest Regional Midget feature victory, while defending champion Derek Losh of Rensselaer, Ind., became the first two-time modified feature winner of the season. Lee Hobbs of Mitchell, Ind. earned his second street stock feature victory of the season at the Grant County quarter-mile dirt track, and Aaron Tatman of Lafayette, Ind., captured his first career Gas City hornet feature victory.

Sprint Cars

Weir had a perfect night in the non-wing sprint car division with his white No. 4P, which is a DRC chassis powered by a Pedersen Chevy engine that is sponsored by Red’s Racing Engines, Indy Race Parts and AFCO Shocks. The current sprint car point leader was smoother than anyone else and he topped his qualifying group, won his heat, started fourth in the feature but led all 25 laps, and he also set the fastest race lap of the main event.

Runner-up Robert Ballou of Tipton, Ind., had a harder trip with his Ballou Motorsports No. 12, which is a Triple X chassis sponsored by Murray’s Body Shop, Berks Western Telecomm and Suburban Subaru, and powered by a Don Ott-prepped engine. He started 14th, but he was tenth by lap two and fifth by lap six. He ran in fourth place from laps seven through 14 before he passed Matt Westfall of Pleasant Hill, Ohio for third on lap 15 and Cole Bodine of Rossville, Ind., for second on lap 18. Ballou did his best to pass Weir during the last seven laps too, but Weir fought him off. Ballou was just 0.141 of a second behind Weir at the checkered.

Bodine posted his best finish at Gas City ever by placing third after starting eighth in his family sprint car, the Driven2SaveLives/Elliotts Trailers No. 57. The 22-year-old driver was always in contention, as he ran in the top five from lap three to the finish.

Shane Cockrum of Benton, Ill., overcame contact on lap two on the backstretch in which the front wheels of Jamie and Michelle Paul’s High Asspirations Farm DRC/Foxco were up high in the sky and it appeared the car’s next stop might be Mars. Somehow the car didn’t flip and came down on all four wheels, so Cockrum kept going. The incident didn’t even bring out a yellow.

Cockrum was fourth when he launched. The shunt caused him to lose five positions, but he battled back and still finished fourth. Westfall rounded out the top five in the 25-lapper.

USAC Midget Cup

Three drivers paced the field in the 25-lap USAC Midget Cup feature, which was open to full midgets, SpeeD2 midgets, and 1,000cc mini-sprints. Front row starters Tyler Nelson of Indianapolis and Bryan Stanfill of Brownsburg, Ind., led the first four and the next 10 laps, respectively.

Crum was second when he and the leader, Stanfill, got together in Turn 4 with 14 laps down to bring out the race’s first caution. Stanfill ended up stopped in the inside of the turn but Crum kept going and was the leader for the restart with Nelson second.

More contact with 22 laps down knocked Nelson out of second and Ronnie Gardner of Brownsburg, Ind., went on to finish as the runner-up, 0.891 of a second behind Crum’s Rudeen Racing No. 26 Toyota. It was the first Indiana midget feature victory for Crum, who is a native of Washington state.

Blake Brannon, a 17-year-old driver from San Jose, Calif., finished third followed by veteran Russ Gamester of Peru, Ind. and USAC Midwest Regional Midget point leader Chett Gehrke of Bardtown, Ky. Stanfill and Nelson followed in sixth and seventh.

Modifieds

Losh, the track’s defending modified champion, had the same kind of stellar night that Weir had, as he also topped his qualifying group, won his heat, and led every lap of his feature to take the starring role among the 30 modified drivers in attendance.

Losh started second in the 20-lap modified feature, took the lead from polesitter Dillon Nusbaum of Columbia City, Ind., with a move to the outside on the backstretch on the first lap, and led that entire non-stop feature with his No. 21 Longhorn by Loenbro/Mullins Race Engines, which is sponsored by Superior Sales and Service, R & R Transmission and Aggressive Graphics.

Dylan Woodling of Warsaw, Ind., passed Nusbaum for second on lap five and chased Losh the rest of the way to finish second. Matt Twining, a UPS driver from Powell, Ohio, passed Nusbaum for third on lap nine and finished in that position for his best career finish at Gas City. Nusbaum held on for fourth and Zeke McKenzie of Claypool, Ind., finished fifth.

Street Stocks

Hobbs charged by polesitter Jason Fritz of Winamac, Ind., with a move to the outside in Turn 1 on lap four and went on to win the 15-lap street stock feature with his No. H0, which is sponsored by Living Room Center, Hobbs Chassis and Pro Street, and Woolston Automotive.

Glenn Bradley of Marion, Ind., started 12th but he marched through the field to finish second. Bradley was tenth on lap one, sixth on lap two, fifth on lap three, fourth on lap nine, third on lap 11, and he took second from Fritz with two laps to go. Fritz held on for third followed by Ervin Turner of Marion, Ind., and defending track champion Andy Bishop of Gas City.

Two dozen street stocks were on hand Friday night.

Hornets

Tatman started third in the 15-lap hornet feature, took the lead on lap two, and led the rest of the way in his No. 9 sponsored by DMD Graphics, Happy Campers RV Sales, and Bloomers Greenhouse.

Defending hornet champion James Headley of Marion, Ind., was in second, 1.314 seconds behind Tatman, on lap 12 when there was contact between him and the third-place car driven by Gage Allen of Warren, Ind., which caused Headley to flip in Turn 2 and bring out a red flag. Under the red Headley drove his crumpled car to Turn 4 and ploughed into Allen’s stopped car in retaliation, and then eventually drove back to the pits. Allen’s car was also done for the remainder of the event.

That gave second place to the current point leader, James Headley Jr. of Wabash, Ind., with three laps remaining. While trying to make a pass for the lead on the last lap, Headley Jr. spun out on the frontstretch just shy of the start-finish line, giving second place to Twining, who had finished third in the modified feature earlier. Eddie Tucker Jr. of Troy, Ohio, who started 14th, finished third followed by Jaime Razo of Kokomo, Ind., and Eric Solms of Marion, Ind.

Red Flags

In addition to Headley’s red flag, there were six other red flags during the evening.

Terry Sroufe of Huntington, Ind., flipped his modified in Turn 2 during that division’s second group qualifying session.

Travis Welpott of Pendleton, Ind., flipped between Turns 1 and 2 with five laps down in the second sprint heat while running sixth.

Defending sprint car track champion Max Adams of Marion, Ind., stopped in Turn 1 with six laps down in the third sprint heat while running fifth after his car caught on fire. He went to Marion General Hospital by private car later for treatment of lower leg burns.

Max Guilford of Auckland, New Zealand flipped in Turn 4 on the initial start of the sprint feature.

Travis Hery of Piqua, Ohio was running 11th and Tyler Hewitt of Marion, Ind. was 12th when they both flipped very hard in Turns 1 and 2 with four laps down in the sprint feature.

Ben Varner of Harbor Springs, Mich., a race engineer and student at Butler University, flipped on the backstretch on the last lap of the midget feature, spoiling what would have been his seventh-place finish and damaging his Esslinger/Spike to boot.

Reportedly no one other than Adams required medical treatment.

What’s Next?

Beason out duels Felker in Tulsa Speedway debut

Tulsa, OK (07/09/2021) Jonathan Beason picked up his second straight Lucas Oil POWRi West Midget League feature win tonight during the series’ debut at the newly opened Tulsa Speedway.

Andrew Deal led the field to green, but it was Andrew Felker jumped out to the early lead. Felker continued to lead through multiple cautions with Tanner Berryhill and Beason ran him down. As laps clicked away, Beason moved into second and began the battle with Felker for the lead. A late race caution for pole sitter, Deal brought the field together with Beason at the point.

One last caution with five laps remaining gave Felker and Berryhill an opportunity to close in on Beason, but when green flag racing resumed, Beason would sail to his second consecutive POWRi West win. Felker followed Beason across the line, earning the Realty Connect $100 second place bonus, with Berry third, Deal recovered to finish fourth, and Kameron Key rounded out the top five.

The Lucas Oil POWRi West Midget League will be back in action tomorrow, Saturday July 10th at Port City Raceway.

DOMINIC SCELZI SNOOKERS SANDERS IN TRAFFIC TO WIN OCEAN SPRINTS FEATURE

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (July 9, 2021) – Dominic Scelzi slid past Ocean Sprints points leader Justin Sanders in lapped traffic with two laps to go on the way to Friday’s victory at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville. Friday’s race for the 360 Sprint Car series served as the prelude for next weekend’s 11th Howard Kaeding Classic, with Ocean Sprints on Friday night and NARC King of the West 410 Sprint Cars on Saturday night.

“I really hope my dad’s watching. He’s been in the hospital all week. Dad I love you, this is for you,” Scelzi said. “There’s nobody better here than the 17 car (Sanders). Very thankful to hold off Justin. It feels really good to get by him late. That says a lot about our team.”

Sanders started outside of dash winner Nick Ringo of Morgan Hill for the start, swooping past him to lead lap one. Fast-time qualifier Joey Ancona of Concord fell from the top-five when he went off the edge of the speedway in turn two, allowing Clovis’ Corey Day to take the second position. The first red flag of the feature fell on lap 13 when Gilroy’s Kurt Nelson flipped from the tenth position in turn four.

Tucker Worth of Coalinga slowed in turn four for the next caution on lap 14. Hanford’s Grant Champlin tagged the backstretch wall on the restart, then slowed on the apron of turn three to require a caution. Scelzi worked inside of Day for second on the restart, nearly taking the position on the inside of turn four. A serious red flag stopped the action when 2019 champion J.J. Ringo flipped in turn one. Ringo slammed into tires at the edge of the speedway, turned on his side, and came to an abrupt stop. Ringo eventually walked from the vehicle after a lengthy delay.

Sanders picked the outside of Day for the restart with Scelzi finally passing Day for second. Bud Kaeding then took over third from Day in turn two on lap 22. Chris Nelson stopped in turn four for a caution on that same lap. Scelzi hounded Sanders in lapped traffic over the closing laps. The leaders went three-wide in traffic into turn one with two laps to go, with Scelzi using the bottom to take over the lead position at lap 29.

The leaders ran into turn one side-by-side with Sanders colliding with the lapped car of Jimmy Christian on the bottom side of the speedway. Christian spun to bring out a caution flag, requiring a one lap shootout to finish the race. Scelzi motored ahead for a one second advantage at the finish ahead of Sanders, Kaeding, Day, and Ancona.

Fred Ryland won his fourth IMCA Sport Modified feature of the season – and second consecutive – in a race with six cautions during the first seven laps of racing. The 20-lap feature settled down after that with Ryland taking the lead from Prunedale’s Max Baggett on lap three. Jarrod Mounce of Atwater went back-and-forth with 2020 champion Adriane Frost of Watsonville for second. Mounce pulled ahead with second place in hand while Frost battled hard with San Jose’s Randy Miller for third. Miller took over third coming to the finish with Frost finishing a narrow fourth over Dennis Simunovich of Hollister.

Watsonville’s Richard Mitchell won his second consecutive Four Banger main event, winning the 15-lap contest over a nine-car field. Pole sitter Joseph Marsh of Salinas fell backwards quickly at the start with Mitchell advancing from sixth to lead lap one. Cautions fell for newcomers TJ Santos spinning in turn four on lap five and Boulder Creek’s Kenny Stragalinos slowing on the front stretch. The caution for Stragalinos erased a sizeable lead for Mitchell over points leader Tony Gullo of Watsonville. Mitchell maintained the lead over the restart however, topping Gullo, Kate Beardsley, Nicole Beardsley, and Bill Beardsley.

Tommy Velasquez III led all 20-laps of the South Bay Dwarf Cars. The lone caution fell on lap three when Eddy Claessen of Monterrey spun in turns one and two. Tommy Velasquez led Nick Velasquez, Travis Day of Concord, Eric Weisler of Campbell, and Claessen at the finish.

Ocean Speedway returns for two nights of action with the 11th Howard Kaeding Classic this Friday and Saturday. Friday night sees Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo, IMCA Sport Mods, Hobby Stocks, and Western Midget Racing in action. Saturday’s show includes the NARC/King of the West 410 Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds, Hobby Stocks, and Police-in-Pursuit. Tickets are available both online at www.OceanSpeedway.com and at the gate.

 

 

Foos brothers sweep sprint car wins at Attica

Saturday, July 10, 2021

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – It was good to be a Foos at Attica Raceway Park Friday, July 9. Brothers DJ, aboard a 410 sprint, and Matt, driving a 305 sprint, won the feature events on Steinle Chevrolet Buick/Croghan Colonial Bank Night at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant. Both did it in exciting fashion as they held off serious challenges late in their respective features.

For DJ, it marked his second win of the season at Attica and fifth overall feature win of 2021 as he owns three victories at Fremont Speedway as well. It marked his fourth career win in the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints at the track. Matt scored his first win in the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints, the third of his career.

DJ had a spirited battle early with Byron Reed and Chris Andrews before assuming the lead on lap 14. A caution with five laps to go put Jacobs right on Foos’ rear bumper and the final five laps Jacobs raced under Foos to challenge but Foos was able to slam the door and take the victory. The win also pads Foos’ lead in the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group.

“Truthfully I looked up at the board…I look at the board a lot. I saw we had 7 laps to go and said to myself ‘put seven good laps together’ then we got the yellow and I saw Trey (Jacobs) was in second and I knew where he was going to be. So I had to protect my line…I let him just enough room he could still make the corner. Last week I feel like I really missed out on one and I wasn’t going to let that happen to my guys. We have a lot of momentum right now. Our car is really really good. Mikey Sommers, Doug Berryman, Rod and Rollie Burmeister, Lee Sommers….they all do such a really good job on this car,” said DJ beside his CR Juices, Crown Battery, All in Tent Rentals, Dave Story Equipment, Burmeister Trophy, Sonny’s Signs, Vantage Branding, The Jet Express, Berryman Racing Shocks, Kistler Engines, Kistler Racing Products backed machine.

Matt steadily worked his way from his 12th starting spot, waiting until the last three laps before taking the lead and held off Jamie Miller for the 305 victory. The win also moves Foos closer to leader Paul Weaver in the NAPA of Bryan 305 AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales.

“It’s good to have my dad back working with us. We’ve been steady most of the year. I just haven’t qualified well and that put us behind. Tonight it was the same thing. But the car was just so good. I knew once we got to third we had something for them,” said Matt beside his Fremont Fence, Mitten Painting, 818 Club, Level Performance, Kear’s Speed Shop, Rohr Total Lawn Care, Speedshark Graphics, FK Rod Ends backed #12.

McClure, Ohio’s Rusty Schlenk had an early race battle with Matt Irey and then held off a charging Mike Bores to score his second Dirt Nerds Podcast/Propane.com UMP Late Model win of the season at Attica. It was his 30th career victory at the track and puts him atop the division’s all-time win list.

“I had my hands full there. We went hard on the right rear tire and we tightened up there a little bit expecting it to be slick and we went way too much. It was a hand full…way too tight. It was all I could do to get it to steer. We had a good starting spot and we had a good clean race there with Irey. He got caught up in that wreck but I think it would have been fun for the fans if we could have battled that one out,” said Schlenk beside his Buckeye Concrete, VP Fuel, Tom Finch Auto, Bilstein Shocks, Landrum Springs, Dominator Race Products backed #91.

Byron Reed and Chris Andrews brought the field to green for the $4,000 Spanky’s Pizza 410 sprint A-main with Reed grabbing the lead over Andrews, Foos, Tyler Gunn, Cole Macedo, Travis Philo and Trey Jacobs. Things heated up quickly as Reed and Andrews raced side by side for the lead until a caution flew with four laps in. On the restart Andrews rocked to the outside of Reed and took the lead on lap six.

Andrews and Reed raced side by side over the next hand full of laps with Foos joining the fun on lap 11. Fourth running Macedo, who came into the night leading Attica’s points, took a spill on lap 12.On the restart Andrews had his hands full with Foos and Reed as Jacobs ran fourth. Foos took the lead on lap 14 and began to pull away while Andrews and Reed battled for second.

Lapped traffic came into play with seven laps to go with Foos in the lead while Andrews, Reed and Jacobs put on a show while battling for second. Andrews night came to an end with five laps to go as he jumped over the turn two banking and came to a rest. On the restart Jacobs quickly showed Foos he had to work for the win. The two ran side by side the remaining three laps with Foos taking the win. Jacobs’ second place finish more than likely vaulted him into the Attica points lead with Reed, Philo and Craig Mintz rounding out the top five.

Schlenk and Irey brought the field to green for the 25 lap late model A-main but a multi-car pile-up brought about another complete start. Schlenk jumped into the lead over Mike Bores and Irey. A couple of cautions over the next three laps kept the field close with Schlenk and Irey waging a terrific battle for he lead while JR Gentry, Bores and Devin Shiels stalked.

Schlenk and Irey ran side by side and nose to tail until a caution flew on lap 16 when a lapped car spun right in front of the leads, collecting Irey who had extensive body damage though he was able to continue. When the green flew Schlenk pulled away as Gentry and Bores moved into second and third four laps later.

Schlenk was unable to shake Gentry and Bores as they stayed close. Bores moved into second with two laps to go and closed on Schlenk. Schlenk hits his marks and held on to the win over Bores, Gentry, Shiels and Ryan Markham.

Brandon Riehl and Dustin Stroup paced the field for the 25 lap 305 sprint A-main with Riehl gaining the initial advantage over Stroup, Jamie Miller, Seth Schneider and Shawn Valenti. Stroup took the top spot on lap two with Miller driving into the lead a lap later. Miller and Stroup ran side by side over the next handful of laps with Stroup taking the lead back on lap eight followed by Miller back to the point a circuit later.

Following the only caution flying on lap 11, the running order was Miller, Stroup, Schneider, Valenti, Riehl, Luke Griffith and Foos. Foos was the car on the move, as he drove from seventh to fourth in just two laps when the green flew. Foos moved into third on lap 14 and quickly challenged Stroup for the runner-up spot while Miller maintained his lead.

Foos drove into second on lap 17 and began to close quickly on Miller. As they drove into lapped traffic with four laps to go, Foos used it to his advantage and took the lead on lap 23. Miller would mount one last challenge but had to settle for second as Foos took the checkers. Schneider, Stroup and Larry Kingseed rounded out the top five.

Donnelly Dazzles Huge Crowd in Sprint Car Spectacular at Devil’s Bowl Speedway

Race Report by Justin St. Louis – July 6th, 2021

(WEST HAVEN, VT) – Chris Donnelly electrified a massive holiday dirt track racing crowd on Independence Day, Sunday, July 4, at Devil’s Bowl Speedway, winning the inaugural “Sprint Car Spectacular” event in dramatic fashion. Donnelly’s win highlighted a jam-packed card that also included a remarkable fireworks show and victories for Demetrios Drellos, Beau Reeves, Chris Murray, Chris Sumner, Greg Zindler Jr., Ray Hanson, and Eric Leno.

The Sprint Car Spectacular event – which was postponed by rain on Saturday – drew entries from both the CRSA Sprint Cars and Sprint Cars of New England (SCoNE) tours, which combined for the first time ever in an interesting matchup between CRSA’s 305-cubic-inch engines and SCoNE’s 360-cubic-inch engines.

Piermont, N.H., racer Donnelly – known as “The Professor” – served notice that class would be in session with a convincing win in his qualifying heat. The six-time SCoNE tour champion started on the front row of the 25-lap main event and built up a big lead in the first 16 laps before the race’s lone caution period bunched the field.

Donnelly again scooted away from the field, but his progress was slowed by lapped traffic, allowing Cory Sparks and Clay Dow to enter the picture. Sparks flexed his muscles coming to the white flag with a breathtaking slide job that gave him the lead momentarily. Donnelly crossed him back over, though, and retook command as the final lap began. Just then, Dow threw down a huge move on Sparks in Turn 1 to steal the runner-up position and he then set to work on Donnelly in the final corner, but the checkered flag waved before he could make a run.

Despite his experience and longevity, Donnelly’s win was his first ever on a larger half-mile track, and it was his first win at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway facility since 2016, when the dirt surface was still the former 3/10-mile infield short track. Behind Dow and Sparks, three-time CRSA champion Jeff Trombley recovered from a trip off Turn 2 under green flag conditions to finish fourth, with Will Hull fifth. Jake Williams was next in line, followed by Travis Billington, Matt Hoyt, Chase Moran, and Josh Flint.

Hull, Sparks, and Donnelly won the qualifying heats, and CRSA driver Dana Wagner took a $100 bonus for winning the Dash race, sponsored by Bruno’s Towing and Mike Emhof Motorsports. The SCoNE tour wraps up its three-race Devil’s Bowl Speedway schedule at the Vermont 200 event on Labor Day Weekend, September 4-5; Hull holds a five-point lead in the track championship standings over Dow, 99-94, with Hoyt, Donnelly, and Williams each within 15 points of the lead.

Devil’s Bowl Speedway is located on Route 22A in West Haven, Vt., four miles north of U.S. Route 4, Exit 2, and just 20 minutes from Rutland, Vt.

Jason Martin Dominates Independence Day at Belleville High Banks with United Rebel Sprint Series

BELLEVILLE, Kansas (July 5, 2021) – The Drive to Zero POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series took to action atop the famed -mile of Belleville High Banks in Belleville, Kansas on Independence Day. Twenty-two cars were in attendance for Sunday’s event, but it was Lincoln, Nebraska’s Jason Martin taking home the $1,000 pay day.

A 6-lap dash lined up the first eight cars for the feature event, which had Jason Martin and Ty Williams setting the pace. Jason Martin took off with the early lead, but a caution flew over the field for a slowing JD Johnson with one lap in the books. The restart saw Martin take off with the lead, while Williams and Jeremy Huish battled for the runner-up position. Nebraska’s Tyler Drueke and Stuart Snyder moved into the top-five, but a caution flew again reverting to the previous lap.

On the restart, Martin again prevailed with a fantastic start, while the top-ten cars battled for position. Snyder would move into sixth around Drueke. Jason Martin stretched his lead over Ty Williams, while Huish and Blurton battled for third. Snyder moved into fifth while the top-five navigated lapped traffic. Jason Martin went on to claim victory with Ty Williams and Jeremy Huish rounding out the podium. A post-race penalization put Huish back two positions, moving Zach Blurton into the third position. Stuart Snyder and Huish rounded out the top-five finishers with the Drive to Zero United Rebel Sprint Series.

Heat races were won by Jason Martin, Tyler Drueke, and Zach Blurton. The Keizer Aluminum Wheels hard-charger was awarded to Stuart Snyder, who started fourteenth to finish fourth in Belleville.

The Rebels will now prepare for the Annual two day Wheatshocker Nationals paying $2000 to win this coming Saturday and Sunday
at RPM Speedway
in Hays KS.

Bard’s Season Heating Up With Win at Selinsgrove

Garrett Bard took another step toward recreating the magic of his 2020 IMCA/RaceSaver National Championship season Saturday night, winning a furious “young guns” battle with Derek Hauck to claim the 20-lap PA Sprint Series feature at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The victory was Bard’s third in PASS this season in the CG Racing Engines/Barnett Self Storage/Environmental Earth Tech #95, after an incredible 10 wins last year (and the PASS and Selinsgrove championships), and it was the Wells Tannery driver’s third in nine days, including a Laurel Highlands Sprint Series checkered flag Friday night at Clinton County Speedway.

“We’ve been getting this figured out,” Bard said in Victory Lane. “We won last week, we won Friday, we were able to win this. Hopefully, we can keep it rolling.”

The win didn’t come easily. Bard had heat-race winners (and feature winners earlier this year) Mikell McGee of Doylesburg and Derek Hauck of Allenwood starting ahead of him on the front row. McGee took the initial lead, but Hauck quickly assumed command and would be Bard’s race-long challenger, providing excitement competition for July 4 fireworks.

Following an early caution, the two swapped the lead, and then pulled away from the rest of the field, with Hauck still leading. Bard was finally able to make his move into first in traffic on lap 13.

A somewhat comfortable lead was wiped out on lap 17 when the race’s only serious incident brought out the red flag. Domenic Melair brushed the wall while battling for position with Will Brunson, and with nowhere to go, Tyler Snook hit Melair’s #36 and rolled over. Neither driver was injured.

The restart after the red gave Hauck one last chance to re-take the lead, but Bard had other ideas.

“I was trying to confuse him a little,” the winner explained, “to make him think I was going down to the middle. At the last second I tried to turn down. The car didn’t really seem to take off. I saw him at the last second, I saw the shadow of his front wing, but at that point I was really committed, and I didn’t want to screw myself up and end up about fifth or sixth.

“It was really good running with Derek. I’m glad we could get another win here, and hopefully we can continue to build off of that.”

Hauck held on for the runner-up finish in his Fultz Auto Body of Lock Haven #33, but the late restart scrambled the rest of the finish. “Nitro Nick” Sweigart rocketed into third, after having struggled for much of the race to get in the top 10, and Doug Dodson likewise advanced to claim fourth. Veteran Mike Alleman, who ran in the top five the entire race, came home fifth.

Completing the top 10 were Ken Duke Jr., Devin Adams, McGee, Austin Reed and Georgia visitor Jeff Oliver.

Mike Melair, who had completed an impressive early charge to fourth place, was a restart victim, slipping to 11th.

Duke claimed the evening’s Hard Charger Award and $300 from his own sponsor, Apache Tree Service, which also sponsors PASS at Selinsgrove.

Heat race winners for the 33-car field were Hauck, McGee, Bard and Drew Young. Josh Spicer claimed the B-Main.

Hauck’s finish was made sweeter by a case of oil from VP Lubricants as the highest finisher running that brand.

Next week PASS returns to Selinsgrove for a Saturday night appearance, supporting the Mach 1 Chassis 21st Annual 360 Sprint Car Open with URC. Roadrunner stocks also will be part of the program. Racing is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.

T-MEZ” Celebrates the 4th with an Angell Park Victory
 

By Quinn McCabe
July 4, Sun Prairie, WI– The second half of the doubleheader weekend for the Badger Midget Series culminated at the Fireman’s Angell Park Speedway Sunday, in front of another impressive crowd.

The action started with Schoenfeld Headers Qualifying, where current series point leader Chase McDermand grabbed top honors. Auto Meter Heat 1 went to Zach Boden and San Jose California’s “T-Mez” Thomas Messeraull wowed the crowd as he went from worst to first to capture the win in Simpson Race Products Heat 2. McDermand picked up the win in Behling Racing Equipment Heat 3 and Lamont Critchett rebounded from his Beaver Dam struggles to claim the Madison Extinguisher Services Non-Qualifier race. Springfield, Illinois driver Kevin Battefeld scored his first win at Angell Park Speedway by claiming top honors in the B-Main and advancing to the evening’s A-Main.

The fans were expecting a post-race fireworks extravaganza, and were treated to one of the best ground shows you’ll see all season. Kyle Stark and Adam Taylor led the field to the green flag with Stark getting the opening advantage. Stark was never able to get comfortable while leading as he faced heavy fire right from the onset. The five-time series champion Scott Hatton worked past Taylor and immediately began applying pressure to the young gun by working the bottom side of the racetrack. Hatton was able to slip by for half a lap, but Stark would power his way back and run wheel to wheel with the veteran. While the leaders were duking it out, there was a hornet’s nest of action taking place from third on the back, and right on the leader’s tails. Andy Baugh, McDermand, Jeff Zelinski, Sean Murphy, T-Mez, Taylor, and Zach Boden were all locked together swapping spots sometimes four wide, without losing ground to the lead duo. Stark was able to wrestle the lead back from Hatton which sent him into the fray of hungry competitors trying to move up. Zelinski, the winner a night earlier, jumped into 2nd around Hatton before giving it up to T-Mez and Baugh. T-Mez and Stark went to war swapping the lead several times before T-Mez was able to secure the spot with a slider in two. McDermand worked his way through the pack to climb into the second spot. A late race red bunched the field together for one final restart. When the green flew, T-Mez received a tremendous launch from his Ray Honda which opened his lead by several car lengths. McDermand finished second, adding to his current point lead, followed by Hatton, Murphy, and Stark.

The Badger Midgets will be in action just once next Saturday night at Sycamore Speedway before gearing up for the first-ever “Three for All” on July 15, 16, and 17. A three-race mini-series crowning its own champion. Teams will compete at Gravity Park and Tomahawk for the first time ever before crowning the “Three for All” champion at the Bryan Gapinski 25 at Angell Park Speedway.

Ty Williams Triumps Battle at Rush County Speedway with United Rebel Sprint Series

LACROSSE, Kansas (July 3, 2021) – Twenty cars were in attendance for Saturday night’s show at Rush County Speedway in LaCrosse, Kansas with the Drive to Zero POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series Presented by Mel Hambelton Ford Racing. Saturday’s event saw Arcadia, Oklahoma’s Ty Williams sweeping the night.

A 5-lap dash lined up the first three rows of the feature, which placed Williams and Ray Seemann to set the pace. Williams took off with the early lead, but not without pressure from Nebraska’s Adam Gullion. Gullion and Williams traded off positions on the bullring for a large majority of the race. Williams would run the high line in one corner while Gullion rode the bottom lane, never losing sight of the race lead.

A late-race caution flew over the field, shaking up the mix of positions across the top-five. Seventh place starter, Zach Blurton got his nose into the battle by getting up to third, and battled hard for the top spot with Gullion and Williams. Ty Williams went on to the checkered with the victory, with Gullion, Blurton, Seemann, and Werner closing out the top-five finishers.

Heat races were won by Adam Gullion, Luke Cranston, and Ty Williams. The Keizer Aluminum Wheels hard-charger was awarded to Jed Werner, who finished fifth from an eleventh place starting position.

The Drive to Zero United Rebel Sprint Series are back in action tonight atop the famed half-mile of the Belleville High Banks in Belleville, Kansas. Hot laps will begin at 6:30PM, with racing at 7:30PM. Catch a fireworks show following tonight’s program. General admission is $20, kids ages 7-12 $10, and 6 and under free.

Spectacular racing and stunning fireworks highlight Independence Day show at Placerville Speedway

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…One of the largest crowds in recent memory at Placerville Speedway were treated to an outstanding Winged 360 Sprint Car main event to cap the night, which ultimately saw Tanner Carrick perform a clean sweep for his second straight win at the track.

One year after hosting nobody in the stands on Fourth of July the fans returned in a big way and created an exquisite atmosphere, singing along to the patriotic music and were treated to some excellent racing on the quarter-mile.

Also picking up big wins at the Freedom Fireworks showcase were Placerville Speedway studs Dan Jinkerson in the Ltd. Late Models and Nick Baldwin with the Pure Stocks. A total of 62 cars competed amongst the three divisions on Sunday evening.

The 25-lap Thompson’s Family of Dealerships main event put forth some of the most exciting racing of the season and began with rookie Landon Brooks jumping into the lead. The driver of the Spencer Motorsports 34 looked impressive all night and held command in the feature until 14-year-old Oklahoman Ryan Timms began to challenge for the top-spot. The pair traded the lead in thrilling fashion as the crowd roared their approval.

Behind them things were hot and heavy as well, with multiple slide jobs and close competition occurring. Brooks eventually pulled back out to the lead as Timms got bound up on the cushion and dropped spots. As the race progressed Tanner Carrick put himself solidly in second and had a shot at the end reminiscent of last week. Carrick then battled with Brooks before scooping up the top-spot around lap 19, while bringing Shane Golobic along shortly after.

Golobic had moved forward from his 10th starting spot and closed on Carrick over the final five laps, but the 19-year-old from Lincoln hit his marks and crossed the checkered for his third victory of the season at Placerville Speedway. Golobic ended up second with Sean Becker putting on an excellent charge from 17th to third. The “Shark” was a joy to watch over the final laps and was nice to see him have a superb run in the Vertullo Racing 83v.

Ryan Robinson looked good again and came home fourth with Brooks rounding out the top-five. The evening’s B-main went to Golobic, with the four eight-laps heat races captured by Tanner Carrick, Ryan Timms, Justyn Cox and Justin Sanders. As noted, Carrick earned a clean sweep of the night by also earning his third ADCO Driveline Fast Time Award of the year with a lap of 10.802. A total of 32 Sprint Cars competed on Sunday.

Winged 360 Sprint Car finish: 1. 83T-Tanner Carrick[1]; 2. 17W-Shane Golobic[10]; 3. 83V-Sean Becker[17]; 4. 14W-Ryan Robinson[4]; 5. 34-Landon Brooks[2]; 6. 7C-Justyn Cox[8]; 7. 2SB-Jake Morgan[9]; 8. X1-Andy Forsberg[18]; 9. 5T-Ryan Timms[3]; 10. 46JR-Joel Myers Jr[6]; 11. 33T-Jimmy Trulli[5]; 12. 4-Jodie Robinson[20]; 13. 88A-Joey Ancona[11]; 14. 93-Stephen Ingraham[14]; 15. 11-Dominic Gorden[16]; 16. 4SA-Justin Sanders[7]; 17. 41-Corey Day[12]; 18. 31C-Kaleb Montgomery[15]; 19. 16X-Andy Gregg[13]; 20. 21-Shane Hopkins[19]

Diamond Springs racer Dan Jinkerson not only claimed victory in the Ltd. Late Model main event, but he also overtook the Placerville Speedway point lead on Sunday. The “Diamond Dynamite” had his way out front for much of the contest but did have to deal with a fast moving Jay Norton at one point, followed by Wayne Trimble who carved his way forward in exciting fashion.

Several movers and shakers were seen but after 20-laps of competition it was Jinkerson who took the Ron Stahl checkered flag for his first Ltd. Late Model triumph of the year. Wayne Trimble came home in second followed by Dan Brown Jr., first time Late Model competitor Andrew Pearce and Ray Trimble in the top-five. Heat race wins were picked off by Jay Norton and Tyler Lightfoot.

Ltd. Late Model finish: 1. 23-Dan Jinkerson[2]; 2. 71-Wayne Trimble[7]; 3. 15-Dan Brown Jr[3]; 4. 22G-Andrew Pearce[8]; 5. 37-Ray Trimble[4]; 6. 3-Eddie Gardner[9]; 7. 15J-Jay Norton[5]; 8. 23J-Tyler Lightfoot[6]; 9. 23T-Tom Tilford[10]; 10. 98-Kiely Ricardo[1]; 11. 95-Max Mcafee[11]

Oakley’s Nick Baldwin has had a fantastic season up to this point at Placerville Speedway and that continued on Sunday evening. The pilot of the Baldwin Racing 17 machine sat in 12th at one point, but kept his nose clean and progressively moved forward in the 20-lapper. Early on it was Chris McGinnis leading the field as drivers tried to find the preferred groove around the bullring.

Once Baldwin maneuvered his way to the front however, he built up a steady advantage en route to his fifth victory of the season.

McGinnis put together a fantastic run to finish second over Ken Bernstein, who also had a fine run on Independence Day. Jason Armstrong and youngster Jonny Walsh completed the top-five. Rounding out the top-10 were Cody Rickard, 16th starter Michael Murphy, Brad Myers, Kenneth Robles and Jimmy Bobbie.

Pure Stock finish: 1. 17-Nick Baldwin[11]; 2. 22-Chris Mcginnis[1]; 3. 43-Kenny Bernstein[7]; 4. 77T-Jason Armstrong[9]; 5. 4-Jonny Walsh[3]; 6. 5-Cody Rickard[13]; 7. 47-Michael Murphy[16]; 8. 33-Brad Myers[2]; 9. 78K-Kenneth Robles[4]; 10. 01-Jimmy Bobbie[14]; 11. 87-Jason Poppert[19]; 12. 25-Oroville Owens[12]; 13. 83-Ryan Peter[8]; 14. 4L-Lonnie Leonard[18]; 15. 54-Vigna Anthony[15]; 16. 93-Mel Byers[17]; 17. 30-Kevin Jinkerson[6]; 18. 68E-Jimmy Wall[10]; 19.

(07/04/2021) Hitting the smooth racing surfaces of Lake Ozark Speedway for the Lucas Oil POWRi RaceSaver Super Sprint Independence Nationals, the POWRi RaceSaver Super Sprints would put on a display of on-track action unrivaled with side-by-side battles for the lead. With clean and near-perfect driving, Randy Martin would extend his winning streak and claim the Nationals feature victory.

Early battles would witness Randy Martin and Mike Trent each claim heat racing victories as Trent would earn the night’s high-point award notching a pole-starting position for the thirty-lap main event.

With Mike Trent and Nick Rasa leading the field of hungry POWRi Super Sprints ready to take flight on the initial green-flag start, Trent would launch to the early lead holding off the high-side hustle of Rasa. As Trent tried to separate from the field, third-starting Randy Martin would move into striking positioning.

Phenomenal wing-to-wing racing between two established talents for the top spot with the backdrop of fireworks in the distance would set the tone for the duration of the feature as Trent and Martin each vied for the lead. Ultimately, Martin was able to use low-line momentum to carry himself to the front of the field with Trent keeping pace in the runner-up position.

Amazing on-track racing behind the leading pair would find Nick Rasa rally late to finish third after slipping outside the front-five as Kenny Potter would battle from an eight-place starting spot to cross the finish in fourth.

Starting at the tail of the feature-field after mechanical issues during engine warm-ups would find Greenwood Indiana’s Bradley Galedrige hard-charge his way through the field past thirteen other competitors to round out the top-five for the Lucas Oil POWRi RaceSaver Super Sprint Nationals.

CALE THOMAS CONQUERS WCS' KING OF COUNTY RACE; NEW RIDE DOESN'T SLOW CASKEY'S LATE MODEL WIN; MOORE SWEEPS MODIFIED & SUPER STOCK FEATURES; 5 WINS FOR JAMES

Orrville, Ohio

Sunday, July 4, 2021

By Mike Swanger

The pits were filled and a big crowd on hand for another action packed night of racing at Wayne County Speedway with all 5 class' of cars with all vying for more O'Reilly's Auto Parts 'Race to the Championship' points plus it was round 3 of the King of the County Sprint Challenge. Trey Jacobs would beat Nick Patterson into turn one for the lead of the Pine Tree Towing & Recovery feature but a spin involving Danny Mumaw, Bradley Howard and Jason Dolick would negate that start. The next attempt would see the same results as Jacobs would set the pace with Patterson in tow for the 1st three circuits. Andrew Palker edged past Patterson on lap four when the yellow waved for Broc Martin who had slowed and pulled off as Tyler Street went to the infield before the race resumed with mechanical issues.On the restart, the first red flag appeared for Chris Myers, who tumbled at the end of the back stretch. The green flag would be out for one more lap when 5th running Ricky Peterson would do a 360 bring out the caution again. With some green flag action following, Trey Jacobs would pull away from the field with Palker and Fairland's Cale Thomas slide jobbing each other for second with Dean Jacobs behind them. The race would come to a stop on lap 16 as R J Jacobs hit the turn two berm and flipped over the back stretch tires. Back to green and Trey kept the lead as Palker and Thomas continued their duel as Dean Jacobs and now Henry Malcuit pulled into fifth in front of Patterson. The third red flag waved when Peterson belted the turn two guardrail and barrel rolled on lap 19. All drivers were ok that flipped in the race. This would bring out an open red as crews could work on the cars. This restart would see Palker over powering Trey Jacobs going into turn one for the lead as Jacobs began to falter and would come to a stop in turn 4 with three laps to go with a bad right rear tire. The final restart with three to go would see Thomas doing a big slide job on Palker to take the lead for good as Dean Jacobs grabbed second away from Palker on the next circuit and at the same time Jamie Myers, the last chance winner, edged past Patterson for fifth behind Malcuit. Putting the Ohio Heating, Engler Machine and Southport Chick-fil-a #91 into the Summit Racing victory circle for the 1st time, Thomas, who was also the quick timer, had recorded a fifth place finish during the All Star Speedweek show at Wayne County Speedway. Heat winners were Patterson, Peterson and Palker.

Using his pole position, Jerry Aber set the pace for the opening 4 laps of the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Model feature with third starting Mitch Caskey in his tire tracks. A lap 5 caution for a spun Eric Hamilton in turn four brought out the yellow flag and on the restart. Caskey would overtake Aber for the point. The Orrville driver had thought his season was over with last week when the motor expired on his car, was offered the ride in the Hover Racing and Ocala Restaurant Supplies #co2, making him the 4th driver in that car this season at 'Orrville' Historic Oval' as Brad Malcuit, David Airgood and Kyle Lukon have had good runs in that machine. Using the extreme high line in turns one and two like he always does, Caskey pulled away for his third win of the season and breaking the tie and reclaiming the points lead. J R Gentry moved into second on lap nine as Aber began to fade as Todd Brennan moved into third on lap 12. After two lap 17 cautions for Tyler Evans and Nick Cox, the yellow was back out on the next lap when Aber and Brett Bee got together in turn one and Aber went pitside. As the green flag reappeared, Nathon Loney swiped third from Gentry as Caskey once again pulled away from Drennan and Loney as they finished in that order as Wes Morrison overtook Gentry for fourth with three laps to go. Fast timer Gentry and Aber topped the heat races.

Mansfield's Kyle Moore set the fast time, won his heat and took the lead on lap four to claim his 6th CORBON Ammunition feature at WCS. Bill Griffith set the pace for the first three laps before giving way to Moore and his Kepling Floors, Moore Brothers Racing and Arnold Motorsports # 1* at the line for lap four. After three cautions on laps seven, nine and ten, Ryan Ayers moved past Mark Gardiner for second and tried to chase down Moore by using the same line but he kept a one second lead over Ayers throught the last half of the race to the finish line. Scott Peltz finished fourth behind Gardiner as Griffith, who also won a heat race, ended up fifth.

Moore would do the same thing in the McKenzie Concrete Super Stock field as he set fast time and won his heat but this time it took him a little longer to get the lead in the feature as Paul Holmes led the way for the first seven circuits as Moore was working his way up from his 8th starting position. Moore placed the R C Kuhn & Sons, Corbon Ammunition and Smith's Welding & Fabrication #21d into second on lap four and then zipping past Holmes in turn two on lap eight for his third Super Stock win. As the two leaders pulled away, it was a battle for a top five finish as Jimmy Humphrey, Chase Alexander, Rob Melzer and points leader Don Rutt. With a lot of rubbing and contact going on between those drivers as the yellow was out with Alexander going for a new tire and Rutt charged with the caution as he and Humphrey made contact. As the laps wound down and Moore in control with Holmes chasing, 16th starting Brandon Craver took over third as the white flag waved and Justin Lorentz moving into the fourth spot and finish in that order while heat winner Alexander recovered from his flat tire to grab fifth.

The JOYRIDE Transport Mini Stocks were going after the Tom McConathey Memorial trophy and the feature would get off to a rough start as Johhny Bruce Sr. smacked the turn one guardrail and flipped over as he would be shaken up but ok. It would be a four car battle in the early stages of the feature as Mitch Reichard and Kyle Petit was side by side for the lead with Loudonville's Jordan James and Doug Hensel on the leaders back bumpers. After a lap four caution for David Keagy, Hensel would take the lead on the restart as Reichard bobbled as James moved into second. James used the outside line in turns one and two and pass Hensel on lap nine and Hensel tried every way he could to get the lead back from the Lorentz Lawncare, E A Construction and Lochevale Farms #83 of James but could not do it as James' made his fifth stop in the Summit Racing victory lane. Hensel finished second while Dustin Bedlion worked his way from starting 16th to finish third as Petit and Reichard filled out the top five. Collecting the heat wins were Hensel and Jolene Voshel.

All the drivers were also chasing after the Contingecy Connection Racer's Rewards weekly and season long prizes.

Racing returns to Saturday night, July 10th with the Pine Tree Towing & Recovery Sprints, the 305 Race Saver Sprints along with the CORBON Ammunition Modifieds and the McKenzie Concrete Super Stock in action. Gates open at 3 pm and racing at 7 pm.

Wildly Unpredictable ‘Bandits Run at LoneStar Nets Koty Adams $2,500 After Plucking the KoolTrikes.com ‘Last Lap Pass for the Win’ Bonus!


Kilgore, TX (07/05/21) by DarinShort.com. There were literally, and figuratively, fireworks above the track and on the track at LoneStar Speedway with the running of the Fireworks Spectacular 25 for the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series on Sunday night July 4th.
Equally as spectacular as the fireworks were the weather conditions with race time temps in the mid-80’s – which is very uncommon for this time of year in Texas.
The qualifying heat races would showcase just how exciting ‘Bandits racing is on the high banks of LoneStar, as it would live up to its name of Slide Job City. For a taste of the action, click https://youtu.be/czgDhcTypbo which showcases an exciting battle in the 2nd heat race.
After his thrilling performance in the 2nd heat race, 16-year-old Chase Randall would earn the top qualifier award for the 25-lap feature event.
Please click https://youtu.be/McIutPHFlFc to check out an up-close video clip of the 4-wide parade lap shot in the flagstand by cwb15.com.
When David Corbello unfurled the green flag at the start of the feature event, 2020 ‘Bandits series champ Michael Day vaulted out to the lead with Channin Tankersley sneaking by polesitter Chase Randall in the process.
Day, piloting an unfamiliar number 3D normally driven by his brother Jeff Day Jr., would set a dizzying pace the opening four laps.
Then disaster struck for Day.
While negotiating a lapped car at the apex of corners 1-2, Day would jump the right rear tire of that car, sending him nearly head on into the corner 2 wall. Day’s car would then spin around tipping over on its side. But in the matter of moments, Day would emerge from his mangled sprinter – much to the relief of the large LoneStar crowd that gave him a huge round of applause for his efforts.
On the restart Chase Randall would take the lead, only to be freight-trained by the duo of Channin Tankersley and John Ricketts…however, in no more time than it took for all of that to take place, the spinning car of Dale Wester would bring out the caution thereby negating the lead change, as a full lap was not scored.
With Randall placed back out front for the restart, one thing started to become evident: the track surface across the middle of the track was beginning to change.
As the cars scrubbed off the crumbles the following 9 laps, the racing surface turned even darker when the caution flag waved for a car that lost power entering the infield.
On the next restart, Koty Adams would get crossed up with another car, with both spinning, yet Adams continued on and would not be docked on the restart.
This is not the last time in this race report that Kody Adam’s name will appear.
During that caution flag, Channin Tankersley would retire to the pit area with a flat right rear tire.
On the restart, now with about 10 laps to go, what happened next, would best be described through a video from Huset’s Speedway this past September https://youtu.be/ROWSQVZAfZI?t=148 – as for the first time in over 5 years of ‘Bandits competition at any track we visit, the track quickly became abrasive and cars, seemingly left and right, would blow right rear tires.
Meanwhile, Chase Randall would continue as leader in his trek towards a possible 4-peat, which would be a first in ‘Bandits history. Only Michael Day had previously won three features in a row.
With just a handful of laps remaining, every driver on the track was left wondering if they would be able to make it to the checkers, and you could visibly see those teams doing their best to ‘baby’ their tires to make it to the checkers.
After a quick caution, it would set up a two lap dash to the checkers with Randall, Koty Adams and Daniel Estes each having a legitimate shot at the win.
As the trio thundered out of corner 4 to come down to the checkers, leader Chase Randall’s right rear tire would literally detonate creating a 3-wide battle to reach the line first.
At the line, Koty Adams would take the checkers first – while his right rear tire exploding as well, with Daniel Estes and Chase Randall rounding out the top three.
Not since the running of the Jackson Nationals feature in the mid-80’s has this writer witnessed such a rare and stunning sequence of tire-related drama.
And with all this craziness at the conclusion of the event, Koty Adams also became the first winner of the $500 KoolTrikes.com ‘Last Lap Pass for the Win’ award winner – resulting in him collecting $2,500 to haul back to Louisiana. Special thanks to Robbie and Randy of KoolTrikes.com for putting up such an awesome award.
Robbie and Randy were also at 82 Speedway the previous night, and picked up and hand-delivered pizzas (30 in all) to each of the ‘Bandits teams in the pit area – which was a really ‘kool’ gesture.
We would like to thank all of the ‘Bandits teams that took part in our doubleheader weekend, the sponsors that stepped up and added $2,800 to the event purse on Saturday night at 82 Speedway, the track workers and to the awesome fans at each event. The checkers would wave at 10:48pm in the 'Bandits feature, helping teams and fans to get back home at a reasonable time.
Now that it’s the beginning of the hot stretch of weather in Texas, we are starting our Summer Break, and we will resume the season when shorter days and cooler temperatures prevail – which is much more ‘racing surface’ friendly.
Our next pair of events are the Razorback Outlaw Sprint Nationals, which is a doubleheader at 67 Speedway of Texarkana on Friday, September 17th and then on to Hammer Hill (I-30 Speedway) the following night, September 18th. Each event has our ‘out of area’ purse structure of over $12,000 nightly. Details for each event will be posted in the weeks to come.
In the meantime, enjoy the rest of your summer, and if you are headed north to any of the big summer sprint car events we wish you all safe travels.
Here are the results from the July 4, 2021 Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series ‘Fireworks Spectacular 25’ at LoneStar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas:

Final Lucas Oil ESS CNY Speedweek Event at Weedsport Goes to Chuck Hebing.

Jason Barney wins Second Speedweek Title

WEEDSPORT, NY – It was becoming a Central New York Speedweek to forget for two-time Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints champion Chuck Hebing. Subpar finishes and DNF’s filled the three preceding events, however, all that changed in the finale at the Weedsport Speedway where he beat Paulie Colgiovanni to the line to claim the $2,560 victory.

This night even started on a bad note for the Ontario, NY veteran. In his timed hot lap session Scott Kreutter made contact with the outside wall and Hebing had nowhere to go. He made contact with Kreutter and the wall resulting in no time and starting in the back of his heat.

Just like Jason Barney the night before, he ran his heat like a driver possessed and finished in an A-Main redraw spot. “it’s been a tough week for all of us and it didn’t start out to well tonight. Luckily we just bent a wheel so we could keep racing,” said the driver known as “The Cobra”, “In the heat a few cars slid up the track, we got position and finished in the redraw. Then we went from there.”

Hebing took the lead from pole sitting Jonathan Preston right at the start and while he led all 25 laps, the final 24 went non-stop which made slower traffic a big hey. “The track had different grooves you can run and the lapped cars were all over so you had to pick your lines. We were lucky that it all worked out and we got the win,” Hebing then went on a reflected, “This win means a lot, I know Al (Heinke), Jimmy (Phelps) and the guys really well so to do it at Weedsport is special. To win this late in your career, you just don’t know how much time you have left so each win is special. And, I needed to finish ahead of Kelly (Hebing, his daughter), I didn’t want to hear how she was doing better than me this week.”

Paulie Colagiovanni started in fifth and got into second mid-race to take up the chase of Hebing. He too had to face the same aspects of slower traffic but he was hoping that it would help him. “When you’re chasing the leader, you hope that maybe he would have troubles with a slower car and it helps you. There were some laps where I would close and then some laps where he would gain again,” he continued on the phases of the A-Main, “I got close enough where I maybe could have done a slider but I just didn’t want to get into his left rear and have something happen.”

For Colagiovanni, he took second in Speedweek points and he was happy. “Yes, we are happy, you always want to win but to finish second behind Jason was good for the team. Now we just have to see what the year brings and we will try to catch him for the championship.”

Barney finished off a very solid Speedweek which saw his worst finish of sixth to claim his second Speedweek title. During the race it was conservative first then win mode second. “I did just want to keep Paulie and Danny (Varin) close so you know you got the Speedweek title in your grasp. But as you get into second then win mode kicks in so we did try hard for another one also,” Barney noted, “The track was very technical and you can race all over, I really like that. It was a fun race, we had a good car, Cobra and Paulie were maybe a little better tonight but we are very happy to get our second Speedweek title.”

Larry Wight and Matt Farnham rounded out the top five with Varin, Shawn Donath, Dylan Sweirnik, Jake Karklin and Tommy Wickham filling out the top ten.

Heats were won by Colagiovanni, Wight and Barney with Davie Franek winning the dash and Denny Peebles copping the B-Main. A total of 30 sprints were in the pits in front of a big crowd for Weedsport’s first ever Speedweek event.

Lynch and Shingledecker top Sprint and 358 Modified Races at Tri-City Raceway Park; Bish and Bailey in pro Stocks and Mini Stocks
(Franklin, PA July 4, 2021): On Big Dog RC night at Tri-City Raceway Park, Sye Lynch scored his first of the season and second career win in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Car class at a track with strong family ties. Grandfather Ed Sr., and father Ed Jr. were big winners over the years, and grandmother Jean was a former promoter of the track.
Joining him in victory lane were Jeremiah Shingledecker for the third time in a row and fourth overall in the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds. Taking the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks was Curtis J. Bish. Justin Bailey snapped the three-race win streak of Dalton Speer in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks.
We’ve been fast here at Tri-City, but we don’t have teh results to show for it, Lynch said. Lady luck did not ride with him until this night. “We were finally able to put a whole night together,” he noted.
Clay Riney sat on the pole for the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Car A Main. Rolling off second was Sye Lynch. Bob Felmlee and Jeremy Weaver were in the second row, with Carl Bowser and Brandon Spitahler next in line. Dan Kuruger made his first Tri-City start from the seventh position, with last week’s winner, Brandon Matus next to him. Darin Gallagher lined up next to his mentor, Jack Sodeman, Jr. in row six.
Lynch blasted out to a commanding lead at the drop of the green flag for the 410 Sprint Cars. Felmlee settled into second, followed by Spithaler, Riney, Weaver, and Sodeman. The man in the move early, however, was Brandon Matus, who took third on lap three and second on the next round of the big half mile. By then, Lynch was way out front.
A caution on lap four for a spin by Francis Sesco brought Lynch back to the rest of the field, but it did not take him long to move away again from the second place car of Brandon Matus. Spithaler’s car stumbled on the restart, and Riney drove by, but he was flagged for jumping the start and penalized when the next restart took place.
That would come on lap 22. The race was stopped due to a crash by Rod Jones between turns one and two. Jones was unhurt, but his night was done.
On the restart, Lynch led the way, followed by Brandon Matus. They finished in that order. Felmlee, Bowser, and Sodeman completed the top five. Gallagher made a charge on the outside, picking up a few spots, but he was stuck on the outside and faded back at the finish. Brent Matus snuck by him for sixth on the final lap. Spithaler, Riney, and Bob McMillin rounded out the top ten.
Donovan & Bauer Auto Group heat race wins in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint division went to Clay Riney and Bob Felmlee. There was no B Main.
Kyle Inman made the tow down from Western New York and started on the pole in the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds. Lonny Riggs was on his flank. Eric Beggs and Kevin Hoffman were in the second row. Kyle Fink, the defending track champion, lined up in fifth, with another New Yorker, Greg Martin, next to him. Jimmy Holden and Jeremiah Shingledecker, the winner of the last two events, were in row four. Behind them were Tom Holden and Max Smoker. Todd Gabriel made his season’s debut in the eleventh position, and Ryan Riffe started on his outside.
Inman took the early lead with Martin, Shingledecker, Riggs, and Beggs following. The New York contingent was looking strong, as Inman held control for the first eight laps before handing the baton off to Martin.
Martin remained out front for several laps but Shingledecker, who worked his way up from eighth on the grid, began to flex some muscle after the halfway mark. He took second by getting a nose under Inman coming off turn four. A lap or two later, he went to the outside to drive by Martin in turns one and two to take the lead.
Shingledecker withstood a pair of late race restarts that put Martin on his inside. Inman challenged Martin but he could not get the grip on the outside for second.
Kevin Hoffman was fourth and Travis Shingledecker came home fifth. His crew needed commendation for fixing the car after it caught fire in the heat race.
Taking Sixth was Beggs, with Riggs, Jimmy Holden, Max Smoker, and Ayden Cipriano in tenth. This was Cipriano’s first drive in a 358 Modified.
“We are all learning,” Shingledecker said. “I have plenty of laps on the track in a Big Block Modified and these cars are different.” Shingledecker went on to state that he was having problems hooking up the car in the heat race, but they made a number of changes for the feature and hit on a good set-up.
In the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modified ranks, the heat race winners were Kyle Fink and Jimmy Holden. There was no B Main.
Jason Johns rolled off first for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stock division. Andy Buckley was on his right. Behind them were Doug Iorio, II and points leader William Hurrelbrink. Matt Bernard was set to start in fifth, but he did not drive in the heat race due to personal commitments, so he took the tail for the start of the A Main. That moved Curtis J. Bish, Jr. over to the inside and Curt Bish next to him. Then came last week’s winner, Bobby WHitling and Alan Dellinger, subbing for Rod Laskey. Darr Diegelman and Josh Seippel started in row five and Chase Lambert and Larry Kugel were in row six.
Curtis J. Bish led at the beginning of the race, Whitling moved into second and gave chase for a handful of laps before moving into the lead. Meanwhile, the action was intense throughout the top ten.
Whitling took the lead and held command in the middle stage of the event. Dellinger took over second and was closing in as the laps wound down.
Things took an unusual turn in the final laps. Whitling made contact with a lapped car. On the ensuing restart, Curtis J. Bish overhauled Dellinger.
Curtis J. Bish led the final two laps for the win, with Dellinger in second. Curt Bish, brother of the winner, crossed in third. Fourth went to Tyler Wyant, who started in the final row.

Jonathan Cornell Puts it All Together to Become First Sprint Invaders Winner in Vinton!

(Bill W) Vinton, IA, July 4, 2021 – With a team put together in the offseason to tackle the Sprint Invaders schedule, Jonathan Cornell struck with a win Sunday night in the Sprint Invaders first ever appearance at the Benton County Speedway in Vinton, Iowa. The team constructed by Marty Howard, Lee Nelson, Tony Moro and others had difficulties in the Sprint Invaders opener but topped a stacked field for a $2,000 payday. It was the multi-time ASCS Warrior champion’s first official win with the Sprint Invaders.

Two-time and defending series champion, Chris Martin, led early in the 25-lap feature ahead of Austin McCarl, Cornell and Ayrton Gennetten. Cornell moved under McCarl to take second on the second circuit. The leader was into traffic on lap six on the quarter-mile bullring. Spins by first-time Sprint Invaders starter Luke Verardi and Braydn Greubel brought a caution on lap nine.

Cornell shot by Martin in turns one and two on the restart and began to pull away in the lead. As he approached lapped traffic with ten to go, the second running Martin did a 360 spin and had to restart at the rear.

McCarl briefly shot ahead of Cornell on the restart in turn two, but Cornell crossed over and stormed back to the point on the backstretch. A caution for a spun Tim Moore on lap 17 afforded Gennetten the opportunity to get by McCarl.

Two more cautions were flown, but Cornell stood the test every time to take the win ahead of Gennetten, McCarl, Riley Goodno and Kaley Gharst. Hard-charger Colton Fisher, Rob Kubli, Verardi, Cody Wehrle and Brayden Gaylord rounded out the top ten. McCarl, Martin and Gennetten were heat race winners, and Gennetten also won the Shake-up Dash. Dugan Thye flipped out of the park in turn four after contact from another car in his heat. He was uninjured, and made enough repairs to start the main event.

“I’m sure you guys were just as tired of that as I was,” said Cornell to the packed house in attendance of the number of restarts. “It’s been a crazy year with all the rain (three of four Sprint Invaders shows have been rained out), and I can’t thank this team enough. It’s a first-year operation. We knew the track was going to (attain rubber), so we had to make our moves early, or really quick on the starts. (McCarl) slid me on the restart there, so I knew I needed to make my line a little lower.”

“Obviously, Scott and I have run well together,” said Gennetten of his car owner, Scott Bonar. “We made a Dash with the World of Outlaws a few weeks ago, and have run second a couple times here together. It was kind of ironic that both times I got beat by someone from Missouri that I watched growing up. The #50 car is fast, and we’ll take it to Moberly next week and see what we can do.”

“The racetrack was tricky all night,” said McCarl beside the Jimmy Davies Racing #99. “It was a little treacherous on the top and just really slick and tricky. You had to have your car just right. When the rubber came, I had the wing a little too far back, and didn’t do a good job of getting it ahead soon enough. We about lost a spot to Goodno. The yellows kind of saved me a bit, but I smoked the tires trying to get to Cornell. All in all, it’s a cool little racetrack.”

The next event for the Sprint Invaders will be Friday, July 9 at the Randolph County Raceway near Moberly, Missouri. For more information on the Sprint Invaders, visit www.SprintInvaders.com or look us up on Facebook.

Trenchard Repeats At Night Two Of Freedom Cup; D. Hibbard And Braaten Also Score Cottage Grove Victories

By Stephanie Deatherage

Cottage Grove, Oregon- Night two of the 2021 Freedom Cup was another exciting installment in an already incredible weekend. The Saturday, July 3rd bout featured the same divisions from the previous evening, including two Speedway Motors IMCA Weekly Racing program classes. That included the Todd's Auto Body Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds, and Royalty Core IMCA Northern Sport Mods.

In Todd's Auto Body Sprint Car main event action, Justen McConnville set the pace for most of the race. The young Dundee native was relatively smooth and consistent and, at one point, looked untouchable. However, one lone caution took place, which did bring heavy lapped traffic into the picture.

As the long green-flag run developed, Dave Hibbard tried his best to reel in McConville. While most of the field elected to utilize the top shelf of the racetrack, Hibbard of Medford tried his hand on the low line. Skillfully finessing the throttle, Dave managed to complete the pass on McConville on lap twenty.

Hibbard would take off to pace the field the rest of the distance to win his first race of 2021 at Cottage Grove Speedway. Justen McConville ended his evening a respectable second with third going to Camden Robustelli of Medford in the T.J. Winningham mount. Grants Pass' Jared Hood wound up fourth over fifth, finishing Kyle Alberding, from Roseburg. Earlier in the program Medford teenager Enrique Jamie in the Dave Button owned machine.

There would be several lead changes in the first few circuits of the IMCA Modified main event. Springfield's Aaron Sheelar paced the pack on lap one only to be overtaken by Paul Culp, from Creswell, on the next time by the flag stand. However, Sheelar managed to reclaim it on lap three.

Bricen James of Albany successfully navigated his vehicle to the front by the completion of the sixth lap. Unfortunately, James would suffer mechanical problems around the halfway mark, which gave the lead to Springfield's Jake Mayden.

Mayden was quick the rest of the way but briefly went off the top of turns three and four, coming to the white flag. It allowed Nick Trenchard to storm to the front to obtain the point and eventually the win. It was his second straight feature win at Cottage Grove and in KMJ Performance action for his car owners Rich and Nicky Biehn.

Jake Mayden and Springfield's Steven Sturdevant were second and third. Coquille native Ryan Baker posted a fourth-place finish with Jesse Williamson of Coburg, claiming fifth. Jeffrey Hudson, of Keno and in the Don Roemer owned entry, was the winner of the B Main.

Chuck Carson showed the way in the first few laps of the Royalty Core IMCA Northern Sport Mod main event. Unfortunately, the Springfield chauffeur would get caught up in a multi-car incident on lap three. As a result, Lebanon's Dalton Bloom inherited the position. Bloom held on to the position until he was overtaken on lap eight.

Jorddon Bratten was the one to take on the new role as the leader of the competition. Braaten dominated the rest of the distance to win for the second time in 2021 at Cottage Grove and the fourth time in the KMJ Performance Oregon scene. It is Jorddon's sixth overall Speedway Motors IMCA Weekly Racing program win. The last trip to victory lane for Braaten was on June 5th at Southern Oregon Speedway in White City.

Brookings racer Matt Sanders ended the race second with Dustin Comer, from Springfield, getting third. Completing the top five finishers were Molalla driver Travis Pruitt and Ray Bloom, of Creswell, in fourth and fifth. Two B Mains were ran with the winners being Veneta veteran Kevin Ropchan and Matt Sanders.

The 2021 Freedom Cup wraps up on Sunday, July 4th, with fireworks going off when all racing is completed. The same three divisions that have been racing the last two nights will be on the card. For more information, log on to the track website or Facebook pages.

McHugh earns first US win in Hampshire Classic at Waynesfield; Chapple scores 3rd straight BOSS win

Sunday, July 4, 2021

By Brian Liskai

WAYNESFIELD, Ohio – After the crazy year that was 2020, it just seemed appropriate an Australian would get his first sprint car win in the United States as America celebrates its Independence Day. Lachlan McHugh, from Gold Coast Queensland, Australia, led the last 25 laps of the Third Annual Bob Hampshire Classic at Waynesfield Raceway Park Saturday, July 3 to score his first victory in the U.S. and the first for his Jim Muth owned team.

McHugh traded the lead several times at the beginning of the race with veteran Todd Kane before assuming control on lap 11. McHugh picked his way through traffic to score the $4,000 payday for the Hampshire which was sanctioned by the Ti22 Performance FAST On Dirt Series.

“I actually came to American like four years ago just spectating and really loved this track when I came. I really looked forward to running here. I didn’t run as good as I wanted to during speedweek. It’s good to recover and get a good run tonight. I felt really fast the first half of the race and made it to the front which was pretty critical because once the rubber was down you couldn’t really do a lot of passing. Happy for the 101 sprint car team. It’s their first win and my first win in America,” said McHugh beside his Valvolione/Running Boxer Farm/SEDL Civil Contractors backed machine.

Willow Branch, Indiana’s Isaac Chapple made history Saturday. Chapple took the lead in the 12th Annual Jack Hewitt Classic with just six laps to go and drove to his third consecutive win with the MPD Racing Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series, the first driver to accomplish that feat in the 11 year history of the series. And, Chapple scored the three straight wins in three different states.

“This is the biggest win of my career. It was a hard fought race. Just keeping up with the track…I had a lot of work to do,” said Chapple beside his Gray Auto/S&M Construction/Van Hoy Oil/No Drama Zone 20/PGG Enterprises backed machine

Ian Creager survived a caution with just two laps to go and drove to the win in the USAC Thunder Midgets.

“On that restart I was mad at myself when two guys got by me but then the red came out and they told me the one was penalized for being beside me before the cone. I just had to concentrate on hitting my marks,” said Creager beside his Donners Bay Resort, Concept Machine/KSD Insurance/Site X Inc. backed #36.

Pole-sitter Todd Kane jumped into the lead at the drop of the green for the 35 lap FAST feature with Caleb Griffith, Cale Conley, Lee Jacobs and McHugh in tow. Kane and Griffith ran side by side over the first four laps before McHugh joined the fun. McHugh drove from third to the lead on laps six and seven with Kane regaining the top spot for laps 8-10 before McHugh regained the top spot.

McHugh started to pull away in the non-stop event while things heated up behind him. Jacobs took third on lap 14 and drove into second four laps later and started to close on McHugh in lapped traffic with 16 laps to go. Now the car on the move was Travis Philo who took third on lap 22 as Cap Henry drove into fourth.

With five laps to go McHugh had sliced his way through traffic to pull away while Jacobs, Philo and Henry battled for seconds. DJ Foos joined that fun with three laps remaining but no one could catch McHugh. Jacobs, Henry, Foos and Philo rounded out the top five.

Steve Irwin and Matt Westfall brought the field to green for the 30 lap Hewitt Classic with Irwin grabbing the lead over Lee Underwood, Westfall and Korbyn Hayslett. Underwood drove into the lead on lap three and built a nearly four second lead in the non-stop event by lap 12. However, the car on the move was Chapple who took third on lap 12, driving into second on lap 14.

Heavy lapped traffic allowed Chapple to chop Underwood’s lead in half by the half-way point. Chapple drove into the lead on lap 24 and had a few close calls with lapped cars before taking the checkers over Underwood, Hayslett, Westfall and Irwin.

Gunnar Lucius grabbed the early lead of the 20-lap midget A-main with Creager holding onto second. Lucius built a sizeable lead until a lapped car spun in front of him, collecting him on lap 13.

Creager inherited the lead and held off Bryce Massingill and Creager until a caution flew with just two laps to go. On the restart officials determined Jacob Denny had jumped on the restart - which was followed by a red flag. Denny was moved back two spots giving the lead back to Creager who drove to the win.

Waynesfield Raceway Park Promoter Shane Helms would like to thank the following sponsors of the Hewitt-Hampshire Classic: Kistler Engines, Tommy Tire, North Baltimore Custom Cut Meats, Marion Laborers Local 574, Buckeye Machine, Cook & Son Heating and Plumbing, Sugar Street Bar and Grill and Northwest Towing and Recovery.

Waynesfield Race Park will be back in action Saturday, Aug. 21 with the FAST and BOSS series and a yet-to-be-determined third division.

Final corner pass nets DJ Netto third career SCCT victory on Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Stockton, CA…Hanford’s DJ Netto stalked Roseville’s Colby Copeland before executing a last lap, last corner pass in traffic to claim a thrilling victory with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour on Saturday night at the Stockton Dirt Track.

Netto’s win came at the inaugural “Tribute to Roy Van Conett” aboard the familiar Netto Ag/ Mission sponsored No. 88N mount. It marked his third career triumph with the tour as he became the eighth different winner in eight SCCT events this season.

“We had a great car tonight, so I have to thank Drew Warner and this entire team,” Netto commented in victory lane. “I kept trying to run that little higher line and close the gap between myself and Colby (Copeland). We had that one caution that took us out of lapped traffic and I just kept hoping that we’d get another shot at it. I drove it in there as hard as I could on the final corner and luckily it stuck. We are pretty pumped to get another one here at Stockton.”

Despite the tough ending for Copeland it was another strong outing for the VSR No. 5V team. The runner up effort marked his third second place finish in the last five Sprint Car Challenge Tour events held. Fremont’s Shane Golobic battled his way forward as always and rounded out the podium behind the wheel of the Matt Wood Racing No. 17W. High Sierra Industries Dash winner Ryan Robinson crossed the stripe in fourth, with Hanford’s Michael Faccinto in fifth.

The top-10 in the 30-lapper was completed by Penngrove’s Chase Johnson, Oklahoma’s Ryan Timms, Lincoln’s Blake and Tanner Carrick and Hanford’s Mitchell Faccinto. Concord’s Joey Ancona claimed the Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Award in the feature with a drive from 24th to 12th. The B-main was captured impressively by Wilton’s Ashlyn Rodriguez, while the High Sierra Industries Dash as noted went to Ryan Robinson.

The four 10-lap heat races were picked up by Shane Golobic, DJ Netto, Ryan Timms and Ryan Robinson. Netto opened the evening by setting the Bianchi Farms Fast Time by clocking a 13.942 around the Stockton oval. A total of 29 cars competed at round number eight on the season.

The next event for the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards will take place on Saturday July 31st at the Merced Speedway. Full results from last night can be viewed at https://speedhive.mylaps.com/Events/1879502?fbclid=IwAR3Nzo6S7DUMGEyF7xSVn2auDViuW7qF11uuYpbpiR1Wfp7d77S9EbLBUbI


 

 

‘Bandits ’82 Winner Comes From 10th; LoneStar TONIGHT 8pm!

Petty, TX (07/04/21) by DarinShort.com. Skirting around several of the recent storms in the North Texas area, 82 Speedway in Petty Texas was not only able to get the event in but provide fans with another thrilling feature event that saw the 10th place Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series starter advance his way to emerge as the winner at the ‘Flags & Fireworks 25’ presented by Smiley's Racing Products, Griffith Truck & Equipment and The Peterson Agencies/Globe Life.

As the night kicked off, a Texas-sized crowd would assemble at Shelley & Tracey Peters 82 Speedway for a night of fireworks, winged outlaw sprint car racing, a massive Toys For Tots drive and to celebrate 4th of July weekend.

Even all the ‘Bandits teams were all properly fed, as series sponsor www.KoolTrikes.com delivered 30 pizzas the teams in competition, which was a pretty awesome way to kick off their evening.

After three G-W-C heat races, the field would be set with Casey Burkham amassing the most points to become high qualifier and the right to start on the pole position of the 25-lapper. Blake Mallory would earn the outside-pole after garnering the most points he ever has in ‘Bandits competition. 22 drivers would take the green flag at the start of the feature event.After the initial start was waved off resulting in the front row being sent back a row, the second start would go yellow in corner two after a wild wheel-banging scramble would result in a car stopping on the racing surface.

On the third attempt at a start, the field would not make it much further after contact on the backstretch would result in Casey Burkham crashing hard into the concrete wall and ending his night.

The next restart would be the one that stuck, as the next 4 laps would click off in a hurry with Dalton Stevens leading the field and through dense lapped traffic. Meanwhile, 6th place starter Claud Estes II, 7th place starter Channin Tankersley and 10th place starter Chase Randall would begin their charge through the field.

On lap 4, the yellow lights would flicker when Steve McMackin would spin off the racing surface at the apex of corners one and two.

McMackin would rejoin the field at the tail when the race would resume, with another 7 laps clicking off in short order with Stevens still in control of the lead and Jeff Day Jr. and Blake Mallory in pursuit. Most teams opted for the high upper ledge of the track as their preferred racing line at that point, when a brief yellow would appear for the slowing car of McMackin.

With 14 laps to go, Stevens would remain the leader with Blake Mallory and Chase Randall up to 3rd place. Randall would take over the 2nd position on the restart with John Ricketts moving up to third after starting in 5th.

As the lead pair of cars would pull away from the field, Randall continued to pull closer and closer to Stevens, when on lap 19 Randall would drop all the way to the bottom of the entry in corner one and make a massive slide job, with Stevens sneaking by, only to have the same thing happen on the next pair of corners. The pair raced each other cleanly and flawlessly throughout the entire event.

It was on lap 20 when Randall would dive low in corner three and make another bold move on the bottom – but this time the pass stuck, and he would cruise to a 5-car length win over Stevens, Ricketts, Tankersley and Mallory.

If the pass would have happened just a few laps later, Randall would have also picked up the $500 KoolTrikes.com ‘Last Lap Pass for the Win’ award money, which rolls on to LoneStar Speedway tonight at 8pm.

We would like to thank sponsors that stepped up and added $2,700 cash into the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series purse – resulting in all drivers from 2nd to 20th taking home added money – and even more money added from that point as the sponsors made up the difference from non-qualifier money, to feature starter money, so it allowed for all 22 teams in the field to start the feature event – which paid $400 just to take the green flag.

We would also like to thank Shawonna Rhoades for orchestrating the Toys For Tots drive at the speedway and a pre-race parade through downtown Paris (with race cars). Those activities definitely helped to create a more festive atmosphere on this Independence Day weekend.

And finally, we would like to thank 82 Speedway for overcoming the soaking rains from earlier in the week and providing teams with an extremely smooth racing surface that did not become a ‘tire eater’ – as no cars dropped out of the event due to an over-worn tire.

NEXT UP: the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series moves about 120 miles SSE of Petty Texas to LoneStar Speedway near Kilgore, Texas TONIGHT, with racing firing off at 8pm! JOIN US if you can, as we return to this fabulous 3/10-mile high-banked oval. The series was rained out last year, so everyone is excited to head back to Lisa and Sam Hafertepe’s speed plant.

Jason Barney Makes Statement with Fulton Lucas Oil ESS CNY Speedweek Win.

FULTON, NY – After what he would call a disappointing finish the night before at the Brewerton Speedway, Jason Barney focused on Saturday night at the Fulton Speedway to pick up the PJC Spray Foam CNY Speedweek win. It was his first win on Speedweek and his third overall on Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) 2021 campaign.

The win for the Brewerton, NY driver netted him a $2560 payday and put him on top of the CNY Speedweek point standings heading into the final event at the Weedsport Speedway. The 25 lap A-Main went non-stop from green to checkered in front of a big Fulton crowd.

While the drive to do better was there, the former ESS champion did admit a little lady luck was on his side. “Last night something happened to my steering for half a lap, the car corrected itself and we really didn’t know what it was,” Barney explained, “Then on the first lap in time trials the steering arm broke. So, I was half a lap from disaster last night and we got lucky it broke when it did tonight. It put us behind the eight ball tonight, but we just kept digging.”

With the troubles he had to start last in his heat but finished second and made the A-Main redraw. Drawing fifth, he made his moves to the front and then passed what could be considered his championship rival Paulie Colagiovanni on to the win. “After the heat was all got confidence as a team that we had a good car. We felt very fortunate with our luck and we prepared to take what we could get. But, the guys just gave me a great car,” he went on, “To pass Paulie makes it just a bit more special, for the past year and half or so he has set the bar. He’s been the best in ESS and is the star of the club for the future. Most of the time it’s who starts in front of who but tonight we were fortunate to pass him for the win.”

Colagiovanni backed up his opening night Speedweek win at Can-Am with the runner-up finish at Fulton. “We had a good car, with the race going non-stop you hope you were finding the right line to run and get through the slower cars ok,” said the defending ESS champion, “You want to win, but we are happy with second and we will go to Weedsport and try to get the win there.”

One driver that has passed quite a few cars the last two nights has been Danny Varin. He collected the $50 hard charger bonus on both nights, passing 16 cars at Brewerton and nine (9) cars at Fulton which is a feat in a non-stop event. “We definitely have passed cars! We are finally getting the car comfortable for me to drive. I just didn’t know what was wrong up until that last few nights,” Varin commented on his early season troubles, “I just couldn’t have a feel for the car and it was frustrating. It wasn’t cause lack of effort, we were trying hard to get it right.

“We threw some things at it at Brewerton during the B-Main and we seemed to have found something to build on,” Varin continued, “Now if we can get a better start to the night and start further to the front hopefully we can get some more podiums.”

Shawn Donath brpught home his #53 to a fine fourth ahead of Brewerton winner Larry Wight in fifth. The next five was made up of Matt Farnham, Matt Tanner, Kelly Hebing, Billy VanInwegen and Jeff Cook.

Heats for the 32 sprints on hand were won by Colagiovanni, Davie Franek, Wight and Donath. The dash was taken by Ryan Coniam with Tommy Wickham copping the B-Main.

Robustelli, Trenchard, And M. Sanders Open Up 2021 Freedom Cup With Wins At Cottage Grove
By Stephanie Deatherage

Cottage Grove, Oregon-
Cottage Grove Speedway kicked off their Independence Day tripleheader weekend on Friday, July 2nd. The first of three nights of the 2021 Freedom Cup would have three divisions on the bill, including two Speedway Motor IMCA Weekly Racing program classes. They included the Todd’s Auto Body Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds, and Royalty Core IMCA Northern Sport Mods.

Now residing in Newberg, Scotty Fox had an incredible start in the Todd’s Auto Body Sprint Car feature. Fox paced the field in the first portion of the main event but unfortunately hit the wall and took a tumble down the front stretch on lap three. It would hand the lead over to Cottage Grove’s Justin Lemon.

Lemon did a masterful job of keeping his mount in front of the rest of the contingent. However, he did receive some pressure from Camden Robustelli in the T.J. Winningham-owned entry in the closing circuits. The two would fight it out on the final lap, with Robustelli slipping past Lemon to go on to score the victory.

It is the young Medford driver’s first win of the season at CGS. Lemon was a respectable second followed by Kyle Alberding, from Roseburg, in third. Medford’s Dave Hibbard placed fourth over fifth finishing Junction City veteran Shane Forte.

The IMCA Modified main event saw an equally exciting race. Chad Groves paced the field in the early goings. However, from Bend, Groves would bicycle hard after a lap two restart with his left side of his race car lifting into the air and then slamming down into the ground.
Under the next caution, Groves would come to a halt and would report to the pit area. Medford’s Mark Wauge would be the new frontrunner.

Despite several cautions, Mark Wauge successfully navigated the -mile clay oval. But, in the closing laps, he would be caught by Nick Trenchard, of Klamath Falls. Trenchard seized the coveted top place position on lap twenty-two.

Seventeenth starting Nick Trenchard scored the feature win for his first win of the season at Cottage Grove, in the KMJ Performance Oregon State, and in the Shaw Race Cars Western Region. It is his first win since July 4th, 2020, at Diamond Mountain Speedway in Susanville, California.

Mark Wauge was a strong second, followed by Coburg’s Jesse Williamson, in third. The balance of the top five consisted of Jake Mayden from Springfield and Coquille traveler Ryan Baker in fourth and fifth. Nick Trenchard also was victorious earlier in consolation feature after starting dead last in that event.

For the Royalty Core IMCA Northern Sport Mods, it was utter domination courtesy of Matt Sanders. Before that, however, Prescott Valley, Arizona’s Timothy Allerdings, took control of first place on the drop of the initial green flag.
Allerdings was to be overtaken on the third circuit by Kevin Williamson.

Williamson, from Coburg, remained at the helm until lap nine when Matt Sanders obtained the point. From there on out, the Brookings-based chauffeur was practically untouchable the rest of the distance to win his first race of the season at Cottage Grove Speedway and in KMJ Performance Oregon State competition. However, Matt has scored three other victories in the Speedway Motors IMCA Weekly program. His most recent triumph is at Yreka, California’s Siskiyou Golden Speedway on May 30th at the Billy Geyer Memorial.

Central Point’s Jorddon Bratten ended his evening in second, followed by third-place finisher Timothy Allerdings.
Kevin Williamson was credited with fourth with fifth going to Atwater, California traveler Chase Thomas. Two consolation features were run with victories going to Yuba City, California’s Jason Ferguson and Jorddon Braaten.

Cottage Grove Speedway returns to racing on Saturday, July 3rd, for round two of the 2021 Freedom Cup. Again, the same three divisions will be on the bill. For more information, be sure and check out both the track website and Facebook pages.

 

 

Bard and Duke Share Sprint Car Spotlight at Clinton County Speedway

Mill Hall – The Clinton County Speedway kicked off the Fourth of July weekend with a Sprint Car double header. Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery and Ken Duke Jr of Selinsgrove each claimed a victory over a stellar field of RaceSaver sprint cars. AY Schilling of Linden won the Pro Stock feature while Timmy Bittner of Beech Creek scored a pair of victories, claiming the 270 and 600 Micro Sprint feature events.

The first sprint car feature had Garrett Bard and Josh Beamer on the front row of the 25 lap main event. Bard jumped to the early lead with Beamer, Dale Schweikart, John Walp and Dustin Prettyleaf in pursuit. With a full field of racecars, Bard and company quickly caught the back of the pack by the fourth circuit and began working their way through lapped traffic. On lap number six, Beamer was closing in on Bard and while trying to keep pace with Bard through lapped traffic, he attempted to put a slide job on a lapped car, but the two cars tangled causing Andrew Boyer’s car to flip in turn number two. Beamer suffered a flat tire and had to go to the pits.

Bard, Walp, Schweikart, Prettyleaf and Jared Zionkowski were the top five, as the green flag waved for the restart. Again, Bard was strong on the restart and quickly caught the rear of the field by the completion of lap number ten. Zionkowski, who started twelfth, was the driver on the move and utilized the top side of the speedway to maneuver through the lapped traffic. A late race caution occurred on lap number 17, when Jeffrey Weaver spun in turn number four. Bard was flawless on this restart and was able to hold off the challenges of Walp for the win. Zionkowski finished third, Schweikart was fourth and Ryan Lynn completed the top five. Sixth through tenth were Dustin Prettyleaf, Devin Brenam, Andrew Jacobus, Scott Lutz, and Ken Duke.

In the second RaceSaver Sprint Car event, Scott Lutz started on the pole position and led the field to the green flag. Second place starter Ken Duke and fourth place starter Jared Zionkowski chased Lutz during the opening laps. Duke pressured Lutz for several laps, as the duo ran wheel to wheel for the top position. Duke finally executed the pass for the lead by the completion of lap number eight. Eighth place starter, Robbie Bartchy worked his way into the top five and was quickly advancing towards the front. The event ran non-stop till the first caution occurred on lap number 21, when Dominic Meliar and Josh Beamer spun. On the restart, several cars tangled to bring out the event’s second caution flag. Duke brought the field back to speed as Lutz and Bartchy battled for the runner up position. When the checkered flag waved, Duke claimed his seventh career victory as the speedway over Bartchy took second away from Lutz, followed by Zionkowski and Walp. Sixth through tenth were Dale Schweikart, Mike Alleman, Derek Hauck, Ryan Lynn, and Tylor Cochran. Four heat races and a B-main were needed for the field of 33 Sprints. Heats were won by Bartchy, Alleman, Duke and Zionkowski. Mike Melair won the B-Main.

Lady driver Sierra Hauck led the opening laps of the 600 Micro Sprint feature event. Fourth place starter Timmy Bittner quickly took over the second spot. On lap number three, the red flag came out when Kyle Knopp rolled his sprint car. Hauck led the field of gentlemen for two more circuits, until Timmy Bittner took the top position. Cody Hauck followed Bittner and shuffled Sierra Hauck back to third. The remainder of the event went caution free, with Bittner holding off the husband-wife duo of Cody and Sierra Hauck, Dexter Strawser and Jeffrey Weaver. Sixth through tenth were Jeff Gyuina, Travis Kelser, Mitchell Holden, James Layton and Knopp. Heats were won by Weaver and Cody Hauck.

Cory Stabley and Mitchell Holden led the field of 270 Micro Sprints to the green flag. Stabley led the first three laps. Following a lap three caution, seventh place starter Timmy Bittner made a pass on the restart to take the top position. Jeffrey Weaver who started tenth followed Bittner to take the runner up position. At the halfway mark of the event, Bittner led Weaver, Stabley, Skeetz Hockenbrock and Bobby Sanso. A lap twelve caution slowed the field, but Bittner was too strong for Weaver on the restart and claimed the win to sweep, both micro sprint victories on the evening. “This is the second time, we have been able to win both features in one night,” said an excited Bittner in victory lane. Weaver finished second, followed by Hockenbrock. Shaun Musser made a late race charge to finish fourth with Sanso completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Zachery Glass, Corey Stabley, Logan Hammaker, Matthew Dixon, and Mac Wert. Heat races were won by Hockenbrock, Bittner and Glass.

In Pro Stock competition, AY Schilling and Robert Tressler started on the front row. Tressler took command of the field to lead the opening laps of the event. Third place starter Noah Jensen edged out Schilling at the start-finish line for the runner up position, as the two racers battled for the runner up position. Schilling finally took over the position on lap number five. A caution on lap number seven, bunched the field on Tressler’s rear bumper. Schilling used the restart to his advantage and made a pass for the lead as the cars raced down the back stretch. Schilling maintained a slim lead, as three cars were battling for second. Corey Long, who started fifth, joined Tressler and Jensen for a contested battle for second place. On lap number thirteen, Long took over second. On the final lap, Schilling held off long, while Tressler rallied for third over a heated battle with Jensen who finished fourth and Brandon Moser finished fifth. “The competition in this division is the strongest it has ever been,” said Schilling. “I’m just thankful to finally get back to victory lane.” Sixth through tenth were Jason Smith, Rooster Peters, Kris Orwig Sr., Gary Mellott and Todd Geyer. Heat races were won by Long and Moser.

The four cylinder feature was curfewed out after running two laps and will be completed on a later date. Heat races were won by Jimmy Moyer, Maddox Smith, and John Bower

KYLE HARDY PASSES 3-TIME CHAMP JEREMY WONDERLING TO WIN $3000 IN THE FIRST EVER FLYNN’S TIRE/BORN2RUN LUBRICANTS TOUR EVENT AT DOG HOLLOW FOR THE PACE RUSH LATE MODELS; GALE RUTH JR COPS 1ST EVER PACE RUSH SPRINT RACE AT THE TRACK

By Mike Leone

(July 2, 2021) -

(Strongstown, PA)...The Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC took part in a doubleheader of action on Friday night at Dog Hollow Speedway. After a sunny start, several rounds of rain that washed out every other track in the region hit the 4/10-mile western Pa. facility. The new promotional team of Kyle Smith, Sr. and Mark McClellan didn’t throw in the towel, and Dog Hollow owner/former operator Jim Michny got the track back into excellent shape after a three-hour delay. The event marked the first ever appearance by both the Flynn’s Tire/Born2Run Lubricants RUSH Late Model Touring Series and the RUSH Sprint Cars, who competed in an Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series event.

Kyle Hardy continues to make a mark in the Pace Performance RUSH Late Model world. The Mid-Atlantic Late Model standout added to his winning ways on Friday night by passing defending and three-time Flynn’s Tire/Born2Run Lubricants Touring Series Champion Jeremy Wonderling on lap 11 and raced on to his Series leading fifth victory in eight events. The $3,000 win in the “Jim Burns Tribute – David & James Burns Memorial” also kept Hardy atop both the $12,000 to-win Tour and $5,000 to-win Pace National Weekly Series standings.

“I lost sleep over last weekend,” commented the 28-year-old Linden, Virginia racer, who got passed for the win in the $10,000 “Bill Emig Memorial” last Saturday night at Lernerville Speedway. “This will make it a lot easier. Thanks for everyone sticking this out; of course the track for not pulling plug after they could see no rain was coming after the last one. Hats off to them, the Series, and everyone with me. I can’t believe we’re able to win another one- it’s a great group of guys we’re racing with. We built this car and using everything we’ve learned throughout the year. None of this is possible without my parents; they’ve been doing this racing stuff for like 35 years. I wouldn’t know anything about it so I’m thankfully to have the opportunity.”

Wonderling was looking for a clean sweep of the night after setting fast time in FK Rod Ends qualifying, winning his FK Rod Ends heat race, and the Sunoco Dash. Wonderling looked strong early on as he raced to the lead in the 30-lap feature with Hardy in tow. Joe Martin and John Waters swapped third and fourth in the early laps with Waters taking control on lap two. Wonderling had opened up some ground before Hardy began to reel him in on lap five. By lap six, Wonderling and Hardy distanced themselves from the field. Traffic came into play on lap seven, which allowed Hardy to pull even over the next two laps, but Wonderling was able to hold on for the time being.

The event’s first caution was display with 10 laps completed when Delaware invader Travis Justice slowed on the backstretch and Rudy Bassaro made contact. Wonderling chose the inside on the double file restart and that would be the final time Wonderling would control the event as Hardy ripped the cushion off turn two to power into the lead, while Martin and sixth starting Chub Frank moved past Waters for third and fourth respectively.

By the halfway point, Hardy began to open up a comfortable lead and with 10 laps to go caught traffic; however a caution for Bud Watson slowed action with 22 laps scored. When racing resumed, Hardy caught the cushion wrong in turn two as Wonderling temporarily regained the lead down the backstretch; however, a spin by Michael Duritsky, Jr. was a huge break for Hardy, who regained the lead for the final restart.

Back under green for the final eight laps, Frank got an excellent restart as he passed both Martin and Wonderling for the second spot. Frank though was unable to make a challenge on Hardy, who took his American Paint Co./AGX/Anthony's Pizza/Ingram Engines/Cline Construction/Sommey Lacey Paint-sponsored #99 to his 10th overall RUSH-sanctioned victory in 2021 by 3.126 seconds.

Frank’s runner-up was his second podium in three Tour starts this season and was worth $1,500. “You have to have your car really good on restarts in these things as it can be tough to pass one-on-one,” explained the 58-year-old Bear Lake, Pa. great. “I was watching them; Hardy and Wonderling were having a heck of a race going on. I just couldn’t make any speed up. If I moved around I lost ground. The yellows definitely helped us. We’ve been working on the cars. This is something relatively new for us. It’s not bad, but we need to keep working on it. Kyle’s car is really good- there’s no doubt. I’ve been racing with him for the last month and he definitely has a fast race car.”

Wonderling’s third gave him his fourth podium finish in the last four races. “It was a good run,” acknowledged the 41-year-old Wellsville, New York racer. “To race with these guys and be as good as we were means something; I’m pretty proud. The first restart when Hardy got me he blasted the cushion pretty hard and had a run on me. Then the other restart I had him and the caution came out. The last restart I had a push in the middle and Chub got by me, but they both were really good.”

Fresh off a season best Tour finish of third last Saturday at Lernerville, Martin’s fourth place effort was his fifth top five in the last six races! Max Blair, who won the $2,500 Super Late Model race at Dog Hollow, was fifth for his fourth top five in five Tour starts this season. Waters faded to sixth at the finish. New York’s J.J. Mazur had a strong run in sixth for his best Tour effort of the season as he moved into the top five in points.

Fourteenth starting Justin Kann was eighth and picked up three contingencies; he was the $100 Precise Racing Products “Pedal Down” Hard Charger, won the $150 spoiler kit from Ontime Body & Graphic, and was the lucky recipient of the $100 Sunoco gift card presented by Sunoco and Zarin Truck & Auto. In just his second Tour start and ninth Late Model race ever, Zach Morrow went 13th to ninth and picked up a $100 bonus from Mike’s Auto Repair & Sales. Maryland racer Levi Crowl completed the top 10. Dan Angelicchio struggled with mechanical gremlins all night and was chosen as the TBM Brakes “Tough Brake of the Night” recipient in his first RUSH start of 2021.

Wonderling established a new track record in FK Rods Ends “Shock the Clock” Qualifying with a lap of 17.662 to earn $100 then won the first FK Rod Ends Heat Race for another $25. Other $25 FK Rod Ends Heat Race winners were Hardy and Martin. Wonderling also received a $100 Sunoco gift card for his season leading third Sunoco Dash victory.

The Flynn’s Tire/Born2Run Lubricants Touring Series will be right back in action on Saturday night (July 3) at Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway in Imperial for the $2,000 to-win “Herb Scott Memorial”. It’s the first of four appearances at the “Monster Half-Mile” in 2021.

Gale Ruth, Jr. will go down in history as the first ever winner of the Pace Performance RUSH Sprint Cars at Dog Hollow. Ruth flew from the sixth starting spot into the lead on the opening lap and never looked back in the 20-lap caution-free event timed in 6:012.56.

“It means so much,” acknowledged the 43-year-old Pleasantville, Pa. racer. “I have to give the glory to the Lord. He put me with such a great team with Rich McConnell and his wife. I couldn’t ask for anymore. Without the Lord none of this would be possible and I wouldn’t be here. This car just goes wherever it wants. Rich spends a lot of time on this car in the garage and makes it go around the track. I have to thank all of the sponsors on the car. My dad, girlfriend, and brothers are all here tonight and can’t thank everyone enough.”

After racing to the lead, Ruth was never challenged during the feature in the Rich McConnell-owned, Rustler Sales & Service/Economy Landscaping/Boice's Auto Sales/Fat Chad's Taproom & Steakhouse-sponsored #24 taking the win by a margin of 0.945 seconds. The $600 victory was Ruth’s Series leading fourth of the 2021 season coming at four different speedways; Tyler County, Tri-City, Bradford, and Dog Hollow!

Kevin Ruhlman started from the pole and dropped back to fourth before making a charge. Kevin passed Arnie Kent for third on lap eight then tracked down his father Chad on lap 13 before finally getting by on lap 17. Kevin Ruhlman cut into Ruth’s lead over the final three laps, but ran out of time to mount a challenge and settled for second. Chad Ruhlman was third over Kent and 17-year-old Blaze Myers, who continues to have consistent top five finishes in search of his first Sprint Car win. Ohio racers Tyler Newhart and Andy Feil finished sixth and seventh respectively. Rod George, who won the first ever “410” Sprint Car race at Dog Hollow 10 years ago, dropped to eighth over Brian Hartzell and Nolan Groves. Ruth and George won the heat races.

Pirtek Renegades

New Richmond, WI (July 2, 2021) by: Terry Lenhertz The Pirtek Renegades traditional sprints teamed up with the World of Outlaws on Friday night at Cedar Lake Speedway, showing off in front of a packed grandstand and their nationally touring counterparts. Twenty-three racers split into three heat races, won by Johnny Parsons III, Al Stettner, and Bryan Roach, while Blake Anderson racked up the most passing points charging from fifth to second in his qualifier.

Anderson and Parsons set the pace for the 25-lap finale, and at the drop of the green, the pair of #12 cars dueled tightly for the first few circuits. After a lap two caution, Parsons was the leader on the restart, but Jon Lewerer and Mike Mueller muscled under Anderson and set their sights on Parsons. With eight laps scored, Mueller, working his customary catfish line, took advantage of a slight Parsons’ bobble in turn four to snare the point. Once in front, Mueller was on a mission - clear track or heavy traffic - Mueller had his #87 mount on rails and methodically stretched his lead. Lewerer was a distant second, and the last 23 green flag laps saw Parsons, Roach, Jake Kouba and Cam Schafer slicing and dicing in a flurry of line changes and positions swaps. At the double checkers it was Mueller winning his second of the season by over a straightaway. Lewerer came home second in front of Roach, Parsons, and Kouba.

In other Renegade action, Dusty Lawson collected his fourth sticker of the season at McLean County Speedway for the Western Renegades. The winged warriors of the Pirtek Renegades join the Outlaws for night two of their annual visit to Cedar Lake on Saturday.

 

 

Larry Wight Defends Home Turf with Lucas Oil ESS CNY Speedweek win at Brewerton.

BREWERTON, NY – The last time the Central New York (CNY) Speedweek visited the Brewerton Speedway in 2019, big block modified regular Larry Wight took home the checkered flag at his home track. On Friday night, he repeated the task winning the annual Don Gillette Memorial and collecting $2,840 for the victory with the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS).

The event was #2 on the PJC Spray Foam CNY Speedweek as the night before at Land of Legends fell victim to rain.

Wight took the lead on lap 11 restart from race long leader Sammy Reakes IV and masterfully maneuvered his way through lapped traffic to pick up the checkered flag, which was ESS career win #7. “The guys gave me a good car, we made some changes as it was a bit too tight early in the night. Then I was just trying to fine the right lines to get to the front.” Wight said, “I got a good restart on Sammy and had good momentum going into one and it worked.”

Wight did put distance between him, Reakes and Jason Barney in the middle stages. As the final 14 laps went under green lapped traffic figured into the fray, but the #99L wasn’t to be denied. He went on about a win at home, “It always feels good to win in front of friends and family. It helps to run weekly here when you do jump into the sprint. We hope to give it a shot the next two nights at Fulton and Weedsport.”

Matt Tanner slipped by Reakes to take the runner up position at the podium and for the Stephentown, NY star, it was a second place filled with relief. “We just never seem to get going good here and tonight we had a real good run, I’m very happy,” Matt said with a smile, “I don’t know if we had a car for Larry but to be here in the podium is good for the whole team.”

For Reakes who can also call Brewerton a home track, a third was also greeted with many smiles. But his podium finish came down to the final few feet at the checkered when Danny Varin tried to take the third-place tally from Reakes at the line. “Wow, that was close! I didn’t want to lose third on the very last lap!” Sammy described the wild finish with Varin, “I saw him coming, we did touch and then it was hang on! Danny did everything to try to avoid the contact, I actually could see him try to steer away. I’m just glad we did get the third.”

Varin’s effort has to be noticed as well as he came from the 20th starting position to claim fourth at the finish and earned the hard charger honors. Dylan Swiernik continues with his very consistent finishes by taking fifth. The next five were made up of Barney, Evans Mills winner Tommy Wickham, Shawn Donath, Davie Franek and Jonathan Preston.

Nick Fratto, Jeff Cook, Jake Karklin and Ryan Coniam all found their way onto their wings but all drivers were ok with Cook and Karklin able to continue on during the night.

Heat wins were won by Donath, Wight and Wickham. Joe Trenca won the dash with Chuck Hebing taking the B-Main checkered.

Philo holds off Foos for thriller 410 win at Attica; Missler gets late model victory; Stroup earns 305 win

Saturday, July 3, 2021

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Late race cautions fell perfectly for Travis Philo Friday, July 2 at Attica Raceway Park. The Waterville, Ohio resident then executed perfect restarts and held off a hard charger DJ Foos for a thrilling 410 sprints feature win on Smith Family Foods/Sutton Bank/Burns Electric Night Presented by Integrity Auto and Truck Sales of Bucyrus.

Philo and Foos battled in very close quarters the final seven laps with Philo earning his seventh career win at “Ohio Finest Racing” speed plant.

“I knew I had to do something different each time (on restarts). I actually got that one where I took off really early from DJ…I saw him do that one night and I couldn’t believe they let it go so I was like I might as well try it. We’ve been struggling a little bit lately with some issues. Kind of lucked out starting on the front row. That was really fun battling with DJ. It had to be a heck of a race for you fans. I have to thank my dad…I wouldn’t be here without him. He busts his ass every day in the shop for us. Thanks Jim Roby and all our sponsors…Control Design Solutions, Tire Slick, Banshee Graphics, Bohmer Rentals, Berryman Racing Shocks, Kistler Engines…Paul Kistler has been helping us out lately trying to resolve our issues and it paid off tonight,” said Philo.

Bellevue, Ohio’s Ryan Missler, a five time Attica track champion, took the lead in the UMP Late Model feature on lap six and survived several cautions to get his 15th career win at Attica, moving him into fourth on the all-time win list for the division.

“I learned all you have to do is cream the wall at Eldora and your car gets faster. It felt really good tonight. You learn some stuff when you go racing at other places. I just been trying to use common sense and trying different things and not doing the cookie-cutter thing that everybody tells you to do. I have to thank everyone for coming out on fan appreciation night….this is a hell of a crowd. I have to thank my father-in-law…he’s my crew guy and he’s limping and in a boot because he tore his calf. Thanks to my wife and my whole crew….Dan, Devin and my kids,” said Missler beside his Golden Giant Building Systems; Big D’s Pizza, MGX Technologies, Kepling Flooring, Handy Grafix, Rich Farmers’ Napa group; Schuder Technologies; York Fabrication; T-Town Lawn Care; Terry McConnell Excavating; NAPA of Bryan; SCS Gearbox, Keizer Wheels, Missler’s Sweets, Accu-Force backed #50.

Fremont, Ohio’s Dustin Stroup tangled with Paul Weaver at the start of the Fremont Fence 305 Sprint A-main but was able to keep going while Weaver took a tumble. Stroup then led all 25 laps but it wasn’t easy as Matt Foos put up a great fight, actually pulling inside of Stroup on the final lap. Stroup was able to get by a lapped car which stopped Foos’ advance as Stroup scored his fifth career Attica win.

“First I want to apology to Paul Weaver on the start of that race. I messed up. I just went into turn one and didn’t lift. Thought I would have had him cleared….well I wasn’t clear and that’s 100 percent my fault. I heard Matt there the last couple of laps and I could see him and the car kind of faded away on the top and I was missing my marks and starting to get in my head. I seen an opportunity with that lapped car to kind of block him and it paid off,” said Stroup beside his Automatic Fire Protection; MLP Lawncare & Snow Removal; Vantage Branding; Sulfer Town Pub, Level Performance; Advance Auto Parts backed #10X.

At the drop of the green for the 30-lap Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprint A-main, Philo and Foos immediately began their battle as Duane Zablocki, Byron Reed, Kyle Capodice and Cap Henry gave chase. Lapped traffic quickly came into play by lap nine with Philo holding a narrow advantage over Foos with Reed, Henry and a charging Caleb Griffith in tow.

A caution on lap 13 for Henry who made hard contact with a lapped car kept the field close. Then on the restart fifth place running Cole Macedo had his rear wing posts fail bringing out another caution. Philo got an excellent restart and put a little breathing room between himself and Foos.

Just as Foos drove to Philo’s outside exciting turn two on lap 18, a caution flew. Again Philo had another great restart and pulled away slightly from Foos who lost second for a lap to Reed. Once back into second Foos hunted down Philo and again the pair battled side by side for the lead until a caution with six laps to go.

This time on the restart Foos stayed with Philo but a debris caution with five laps to go forced Philo into another excellent restart. Foos gave a couple of looks to Philo’s outside the remaining five laps but Philo held his lane and took the win over Foos, Chris Andrews who hard charged from 20th, Reed and Griffith.

Mike Bores grabbed the early lead of the Dirt Nerds Podcast/Propane.com UMP Late Model A with Missler, Tyler Thompson, Ryan Markham and Devin Shiels giving chase. Three cautions marred the first eight laps of the feature but Missler drove around Bores into the top spot on lap six.

A couple of cautions at the half-way point kept the field close but Missler and Bores pulled away from a tremendous battle for third between Markham, Shiels and Matt Irey. One final caution for debris with just four laps to go wasn’t enough for the rest of the field as Missler drove away for the victory over Bores, Irey, Shiels and Markham.

At the start of the Fremont Fence 25-lap 305 sprint A-main, contact between the front row of Stroup and Weaver ended with Weaver taking a tumble. Once the green flew again Stroup jumped into the lead over Matt Foos, Mike Keegan and Shawn Valenti. Only caution flew on lap nine, keeping the field close.

Once the race resumed Stroup was able to pull away from Foos as now Tyler Shullick was on the move, taking third. With seven laps to go Foos was fighting off Shullick as Stroup had to deal with lapped traffic. When the white flag flew Foos stuck a bumper under Stroup who then made a daring move exiting turn two to put a lapped car between himself and Foos. Shullick, Jamie Miller and Valenti rounded out the top five.

 Dancer grabs NRA win at Limaland

by Gerry Keysor

7/2/2021

Lima, OH

After losing the last two events to rain, the fans, teams, and staff at Limaland Motorsports Park were all ready for a great night of racing, and they were treated to that plus great weather on Friday night at the 1/4 mile of Thunder. No. 65 Todd Sherman grabbed the win in the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds, while No. 74D Craig Dippman won his 2nd Budweiser Thunderstock A Main in a row, and No. 49 Shawn Dancer picked up the win in the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders.

Kicking off the night's racing were the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modified as part of the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series. 32 teams signed in for racing action, and they were whittled down to the 20 starters in the A Main. It was No. 96 Aaron Orr and No. 16 Jeff Koz leading the field to green as chaos erupted in turn one beginning with Orr tangling with No. 34X Shane O'Connor, and 5 other cars piling up in turn 1. After the accident was cleared up, a complete restart ensued with Koz grabbing the early lead. Churobusco, Indiana's Todd Sherman starting working on Koz right away but Koz was able to hold off Sherman thru 2 cautions and restarts on laps 4 and 7, but Koz would be docked 2 spots for hitting the frontstretch cone, handing the lead to Sherman. Former stock car track champion No. 463 Daniel Sanchez found himself in 2nd and battled with Koz until Koz got by for good on lap 9. Shane O'Connor battled his way back up to 5th before getting sideways in turn 2 to bring out the caution, his 2nd, ending his night. Sherman would pull away to victory over Koz, Sanchez, No. 95J Jerry Bowersock, and No. 17N Dillon Nussbaum completing the top 5.

Next up would be the Bud Thunderstock in their 15 lap A Main as part of the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series. No. 1W Mark Wooten and No. 26 Justin Long would lead the field to green but just like the Modified feature, calamity ensued with 4 cars piling up in turn 2 causing a complete restart. Craig Dippman would waste no time in grabbing the lead and trying to set sail on the field, but a caution for debris would wave on lap 3. Dippman would once again pull away with the lead, but No. 7C Jordan Conover was charging thru the field, making his way up to 2nd on lap 8. Caution would wave once again on lap 10 as UNOH Racer Jamie Sullivan would spin her No. 00 right in front of Dippman, narrowly missing the leader. On the restart Conover would peek to the inside of Dippman, but the No. 74D would charge to his 2nd straight win, with Conover 2nd, No. 11 UNOH Racer Randy Giroux 3rd, No. 22T Tony Anderson 4th, and No. 23 Casey Barr completing the top 5.

Completing the night's racing action were the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders. No. 11N Harli White, and No. 49 Shawn Dancer would lead the field to green with Dancer grabbing the lead over White and No. 28M Connor Morrell. Caution would wave on lap 10 for No. 5J Jake Hesson spinning in turn 4. Harli White would bring out the next caution on lap 15, doing a 360 in turn 4, nearly collecting No. 22M Dan McCarron. On the restart, No 22H Randy Hannagan would crack the top 5 after starting last. Hannagan would power to 3rd by lap 17 when the caution waved again, this time for the No. 16B of Zane DeVault coming to a stop in turn 4. Hannagan looked poised to make a challenge to the top 2 until the caution flag waved one final time on lap 21 for No. 18 Todd Heuerman spinning in turn 2. Dancer would survive the final restart and grab the win over No. 17 Jared Horstman, McCarron, Hannagan, and No. 23 Devon Dobie

Limaland Motorsports Park will be closed on Friday July 9th, but will return to action on Friday July 16th when the Stolly Insurance Group presents the UNOH Centennial Night. The University of Northwestern Ohio, which owns Limaland Motorsports Park, turned 100 years old in 2020, but was unable to celebrate due to the pandemic. Now we invite all racefans to join us as we celebrate the best way we know how, with a great night of racing action featuring the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders, Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds, and Budweiser Thunderstocks. General Admission for ages 16 and older is just $12, $6 for ages 11-15, and kids under 10 admitted FREE. Pit Passes for all ages $30. Pit gates open at 4PM, Grandstand gates open at 5PM, Hot Laps begin at 6:30PM, and Racing at 7:30 PM.

Balog continues Plymouth dominance with IRA triumph

Arenz storms to fourth PDTR 360 Sprint Car victory of 2021

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 1, 2021 – Nearly one month after claiming his first career FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobil 1 A main victory at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis., 10-time Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association champion Bill Balog of Hartland continued his winning ways at the third-mile clay oval by bagging the special 30-lap Road America NASCAR Weekend Kickoff IRA main event before a huge crowd of spectators on Thursday, July 1.

In the 25-lap Plymouth Dirt Track Racing Kristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty 360 Sprint Car A main, point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan Falls rolled to his fourth PDTR A-main victory of the 2021 season.

After the initial start of the 30-lap IRA A main was erased when Mike Reinke of Howards Grove spun in turn three, visiting NASCAR Cup Series driver Chase Briscoe of Mitchell, Ind. bolted into the lead from the pole position with Bill Balog, who started fifth, sliding into second.

Briscoe, who was making his first Winged Sprint Car start since 2018, caught the rear of the field on lap 5, which allowed Balog to close the gap significantly. On lap 6, Balog swept past Briscoe in heavy lapped traffic to take over the lead in turn three.

The second of eight yellow/red flag periods appeared on lap 8 when Briscoe spun Paul May’s 71M car in turn 3 before being collected by Scotty Thiel of Sheboygan, who had been running third.

Following the restart, two-time IRA champion Scotty Neitzel of Beaver Dam, who started fourth, charged in to briefly pressure Balog for the lead as the leaders weaved their way through slower traffic.

On lap 14, 2018 IRA champion Jake Blackhurst of Hanna City, Ill., who started seventh, worked past Neitzel to seize second. A red flag was displayed on lap 15 when Russel Borland of Kewaskum flipped along the back stretch.

Shortly after, Briscoe brought out another caution flag when he spun in turn two on lap 16. On the restart, Danny Schlafer of Sussex slowed to a stop in turn four to bring out the fifth stoppage of the race.

After the restart, Blackhurst turned up the heat to close in on Balog in lapped traffic on lap 20. However, Blackhurst’s progress was slowed by three more caution flags over the next five laps for the stalled car of Scotty Neitzel on lap 22, an infield tire on the track on lap 24 and a flip involving Dave Uttech of Kenosha in turn two on lap 24.

Uttech’s flip prompted an open red period to allow pit crews to add fuel to help each team get their cars to the end of the lengthy race.

When the race resumed, Balog flexed his muscle once again to pull away from Blackhurst over the final five laps en route to his 132nd career IRA A-main victory, fifth overall A-main win of the 2021 campaign, third IRA main event victory of the season and fourth straight main event victory at The Plymouth Dirt Track.

Blackhurst had to settle for second, 2016 IRA champ Jeremy Schultz of Beaver Dam finished third after starting ninth, Jordan Goldesberry of Springfield, Ill. placed fourth after starting eighth and 14th starter Josh Schneiderman of West Burlington, Iowa rounded out the top five.

Outside front row starter Adam Miller of Plymouth grabbed the lead on the drop of the green field of the 25-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car A main with fourth starter Jack Vanderboom of Dousman following in second.

As Miller paced the field, the first of three caution flags appeared on lap 5 when Justin Erickson of Plymouth and Tony Wondra of Campbellsport collided in turn two.

Following the restart, 2018 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Justin Miller of Plymouth moved in from his sixth starting spot to pressure his brother, Adam, for the lead on lap 7. Adam fended off Justin in the battle of the Miller brothers to maintain the top spot before Travis Arenz, who started ninth, began to make his presence felt at the front of the field.

After moving into third on lap 14 on the lightning fast track surface, Arenz worked around Justin Miller to take second on lap 15.

One lap later, Arenz powered past Adam Miller and into the lead exiting turn four and quickly built up a sizeable cushion. The second caution flag appeared on lap 18 when Will Gerrits of Waupun stopped in turn four.

Arenz bolted away from the pack on the restart and held a half-lap lead when Austin Hartmann of Sheboygan Falls flipped on the back stretch on lap 24 to bring out a red flag and set up a green-white-checkered flag finish.

On the restart, Arenz again wired the field as he pulled away from Adam Miller to notch his eighth career PDTR 360 Sprint Car main event win, 18th career Midwest Sprint Car Association A-main victory and fourth feature victory of the 2021 season at The Plymouth Dirt Track.

Adam Miller placed second, two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee, who started third, finished third, Justin Miller was fourth and two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh finished fifth after starting eighth.

Tony Wondra captured the 15-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car B main.

In time trials, Scotty Thiel set a new track record with a lap of 11.300 to earn the IRA fast qualifier award.

Chase Briscoe and Scotty Thiel earned IRA dash victories.

The all-Sprint Car event, which was sponsored by Jensen Sales and Service, drew a total of 54 Sprint Cars, including 24 IRA 410 Sprint Cars and 30 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars.

PDTR action is scheduled to resume on Saturday, July 10 with action in the PDTR 360 Sprint Car, Late Model, Grand National and B Mod divisions.

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

As an addition to last week’s race report, four new race track records were set in PDTR action on Friday, June 25.

Lance Fassbender of Burnett set a new 15-lap 360 Sprint Car B main track record with a time of three minutes and 12 seconds. Justin Schmidt of Cleveland established a new 12-lap Late Model B main track record in two minutes and 40 seconds.

Brad Mueller of Random Lake tied Waukesha’s Taylor Scheffler for the 10-lap Late Model heat race track record in two minutes and 12 seconds, while Tim Sheppard of Beaver Dam and Craig Gessner of Beechwood tied Nick Schultz of Beaver Dam by completing 10-lap B Mod heat races in a track record time of two minutes and 32 seconds.

Paulie Colagiovanni Opens Lucas Oil ESS CNY Speedweek with win at Can-Am

LaFARGEVILLE, NY – If you were a betting person, it’s becoming almost a sure bet that defending Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) Champion Paulie Colagiovanni will win at the Can-Am Speedway. Taking the lead from Jeff Cook on lap one restart, the 20-year-old driver took the first leg of the PJC Spray Foam Central New York Speedweek where he is also the 2019 titlist.

The win was Colagiovanni’s first on the 2021 Lucas Oil campaign and his fourth in a row at the LaFargeville 4/10ths mile oval. “We like it here and I like the big tracks,” said the driver from Cicero, NY, “We softened the car up some and it worked really good. It (the car) got a little looser in the race but I moved the wing back and that helped.”

As mentioned earlier he is the past Speedweek champion and that is the goal again this year, “It’s going to be a tough four or five days, lots of coffee, work and stay out of wrecks,” he went on, “You just need to keep finishing on the podium and that’s what we did in 2019. Just hope we can do it again.’

The final 24 laps did go non-stop with Jason Barney coming from his 10th place starting position to claim the runner-up honors, a little over two seconds behind the winner. “I couldn’t be happier, we are notoriously pretty bad here (Can-Am) so this was a good run,” Barney continued, “We kind of came with a plan to finish fifth or sixth, so we will definitely take a second. The guys gave me a great race car.”

The 2017 ESS champ is currently sitting atop the overall points and second to the 2019 champ was welcomed, “Paulie is good, whether you start ahead or behind him you know he’s probably the guy to beat,” said the driver of the familiar #87, “It’s a good start to a very long week and we just hope we can keep the good runs going and have some luck.”

Dylan Swiernik has finished in the top 10 in all the ESS events so far this year, with a third-place finish at his local track the highlight. “This track has neglected my so much, I’ve had so much bad luck here. I’ve been on the podium here but I also feel like I’ve destroyed 10 different cars,” Swiernik said on his Can-Am experiences, “A third place finish on Speedweek, I’m happy. Now just keep the tires on the ground and hope we are on top at the end.”

Cook hung on for fourth with Kelly Hebing home for a fine fifth. The next five was made up of Sammy Reakes IV, Chuck Hebing making for a family affair in the top ten, Danny Varin and dash winner Josh Pieniazek.

Wilmot Raceway

(Wilmot, Wis., Tuesday, June 29, 2021)--A first time winner and a snapped streak were among the highlights of the Second Annual Carload Fireworks Spectacular at Wilmot Raceway on Tuesday, June 29. Burlington's Mike Sullivan captured his first ever 20-lap Autometer/Brewington Electric Wisconsin Wingless Sprints in the opening of two main events for that division. Sullivan worked his way around early race leader Ryan Zielski of Oconomowoc with three laps to go. At the finish it was Sullivan followed by runnerup Zielski, Allen Hafford of Beach Park, IL third, Salem's George Gaertner III fourth and Trevor's Jordan Paulsen fifth. "The car's power steering went out at the end, the motor began running rough, and I almost hit the wall coming for the checkered," said Sullivan. "It's great to get a win in this class. I have to thank my wife, Nikki, the crew, everyone who supports us." The second feature saw Jimmy Sivia of Winthrop Harbor, IL power through the field from 13th starting spot to win his second feature of the season. Tim Cox of Park City, IL, who led the first 13 circuits until Sivia soared past using the high side, ended up second. Dennis Spitz of Lewisburg, Ky. was third. Bristol's Chris Klemko fourth. Brown Deer's John Fahl fifth. "Being able to win against the likes of Tim Cox is special," said Sivia. "Having to come from the back was a challenge, but we were up to it." Genoa City's Nick Simons snapped the win streak of Chris Carlson of Caledonia at seven 20-lap modified features at Wilmot this season. Carlson and early leader Joe Huenfeld of Freeport tangled in turn four coming for the white flag. Huenfeld retired to the pits and on the restart Carlson had something mechanically wrong pulling off in turn one. N. Simons went on the victory with Eagle's Steve Mueller second. Waterford's Mike Wittenburg was third. Waterford's Jeff Bodendorfer fourth. Bristol's John Dost fifth. "I have to thank my family, all of the sponsors, and the great fans who support the track," said N. Simons, who was thanked in victory lane for all of his efforts along with the track prep crew of his father, Mike Simons and Jim Kuenfeld, who worked tirelessly for five days to get the track raceable after all of the rain. Scott Ellis of Lake Villa, IL won his first 20-lap Bandit 4-Cylinder Stock Car feature of the season. Scott Ellis took the lead from Ryan Johnson eight laps from the finish and went on to the win. Union Grove's Dale Ehleiter, who started 14th in the 24-car field, came on to finish second. Pleasant Prarie's Steve Ellis, Scott's father, was third. Mt. Pleasant's Jessica McKellips was fourth. Ernie Herlt of Grayslake, IL fifth. "The track was challenging with all of the rain, but I am glad the track crew got it so we could race," said Scott Ellis. "My dad, and everyone who helps on the car is a great support." A huge fireworks show helped highlight the pre-holiday special with car load admission. Wilmot Raceway is off for the Independence Day Holiday. Action at the 1/3-mile clay oval resumes on Saturday, July 10 featuring the traditional appearance by the NOS Energy World of Outlaws Sprint Cars in the Badger 40. Wingless sprints and IRA Lightning Sprints are on the program as well. Grandstands open at 4 p.m. with on track activity at 6:30 and racing slated for 7:30 p.m. Pits open at 2:00 p.m. All advance tickets, ticket sales and pit pass information is available only at slspromotions.com.

Paulie Colagiovanni Captures First Career Patriot Sprint Tour A-Main and wins the Earl Halaquist Memorial at the Fonda Speedway

Contact: Paul Harkenrider

PST Media

(Fonda, NY) The old saying of “Long Time Coming” played up to its name on Saturday night as multi-time podium finisher on the Patriot Sprint Tour, Paulie Colagiovanni finally picked up a win in Patriot Sprint Tour competition. Although Colagiovanni has won several A-Mains with other 360 sanctioning bodies, this is Colagiovanni’ s first A Main win with the Patriots where he pocketed $3,000 plus lap money in the Earl Halaquist memorial.

Colagiovanni started on the front row alongside local favorite Danny Varin who took command in the opening laps. That lead did not last long as Colagiovanni would take the lead coming out of four to the start finish line and was officially scored the race leader on lap three.

On this lap, Mike Kiser would get spun around in turn two but was able to keep it going and the race stayed green until he entered turn three where Kiser got put on his side bringing out the red flag.

The field would re-fire with Colagiovanni as the race leader over Varin, Jordan Thomas, Jeff Trombley and Davie Franek.

Colagiovanni would pull away, but on this restart, Davie Franek went to the top and got by both Trombley and Thomas for third. As Colagiovanni was starting to pull away, the battle for second would start to heat up between Franek and Varin. Franek was able to get by Varin on lap ten and start to track down the race leader.

Lap traffic would start to become an obstacle for Colagiovanni as this would allow both Franek and Varin to get back into contention for the race lead. Colagiovanni was however the stronger car getting by lap traffic and would start to once again pull away through the second half of the race.

It was a no contest for Colagiovanni as he dominated the A Main winning the Earl Halaquist memorial and his first career Patriot Sprint Tour A Main.

Franek seemed to be losing less control of his car in the closing laps where Varin would get back by him with two laps to go. Varin would take home second followed by Franek, Jordan Thomas and a late charging, Chad Miller would complete the top five.

Although Franek would finish third, he was able to maintain his point lead over Jordan Thomas who trailed by one point heading into the night.

Heat race winners went to Colagiovanni, Chad Miller and Jerimiah Munson who was pulling double duty as he also was competing in the sportsman division at Fonda Speedway.

The dash win went to Chuck Hebing while the B-Main went to Steve Glover.

The Patriots will be off for almost the entire month of July now due the border crossing restrictions and the three-day weekend at Can-Am, Brockville and Cornwall is now canceled.

The next scheduled race will now be at Outlaw Speedway on Friday, July 30 for the Outlaw Summer Nationals.

Jeremiah Shingledecker and Brandon Matus WIn Big at Tri-City Raceway Park; Whitling, Speer, and Myers also Score
(Franklin, PA June 27, 2021): Jeremiah Shingledecker became the first three-time winner in the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modified division at Tri-City Raceway Park. Breaking through with his first victory in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars was Brandon, “the Wheelman,” Matus.
Also scoring wins were Bobby Whitling (Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks), Dalton Speer (4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks), and David Myers (Vintage Modifieds).
Shingledecker was worried when he pulled the pills for the starting lineup for the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds. The track uses a modified re-draw system based on heat finishes. “I put the two fastest cars on the front row,” he said. And, to make matters worse, he lined up in eighth as the last feature winner in the class. But, his concerns went for naught.
J.R. McGinley started from the pole position in his first appearance of the season at Tri-City Raceway Park. On his flank was Jimmy Holden. Kyle Fink and D.J. Schrader were in row two, with Travis Shingledecker and Kevin Hoffman in the third stanza. Steve Barr was lined up inside Shingledecker, who also happens to be the points leader in the division. Then came Tom Holden and Curt Bish, Jr. Lonny Riggs and Max Smoker were in the sixth row.
McGinley took the early lead, but Jimmy Holden was nipping on his heels. Fink slid into third, with Schrader, Travis Shingledecker, and Steve Barr fighting for position. Soon, they were joined by Jeremiah Shingledecker.
McGinley held control through the first five laps. After a caution for Nathan McDowell, Holden stayed close enough on the restart to nose ahead in turns one and two. However, a caution for Travis Shingledecker’s bout with the water barrels lining the wall in turns one and two negated the pass for the lead.
On the ensuing restart, McGinley got into turn one a bit too hot. He slid up out of the groove, opening the door for Holden. Holden ducked under him to take the lead.
A series of restarts over the next couple of laps enabled Jeremiah Shingledecker to climb through the ranks. As he was doing so, McGinley started to slide back through the field.
Jeremiah Shingledecker stalked Jimmy Holden for eight laps during a longer green flag session. Coming through turn four with fifteen laps completed, Shingledecker got his nose under Holden, who continued to use the high side through the race. Shingledecker powered off the corner with the lead. Holden fought back, but he was unable to overtake Shingledecker.
Over the final laps in the race, Shingledecker stretched his advantage. Holden was second, followed by Fink, Riggs, and McGinley. Kevin Hoffman crossed in sixth, followed by Travis Shingledecker, the winner’s brother, D.J. Schrader, Curt Bish, and Ryan Riffe.
In the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group heat races for the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds, the victories went to Jeremiah Shingledecker and Jimmy Holden. There was no B Main.
Brandon Matus said after the feature that he felt badly about an hour before the green flag dropped for the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars. He had experimented in his heat race and the new set-up did not work. “We went back to what I know will make the car go straight,” he said. It went straight as an arrow, and it was fast.
Leyton Wagner and Brandon Matus were third generation drivers leading the way in the Sprint Car feature event. They were followed by Brandon Spithaler. Chase Metheny was slated to start in fourth, but he opted for the tail, so that moved Bob Felmlee into row two. Darin Gallageher and Jack Sodeman, Jr. became the new third row. Sodeman rolled out an old favorite car for Sunday night action after crashing the night before at another area speedway. Then came Brent Matus and Ken Rossey. Bob McMillin and Logan McCandless made up row five. Bryan Salisbury made his first Tri-City start of the season from row six, with Francis Sesco returning to action after several years lay-off.
Brandon Matus wasted no time sailing into the lead. Wagner and Felmlee followed. Things were shaping up for a three-way battle for the lead when a red flag was thrown due to the violent crash of Ken Rossey on the third trip around the big half mile. Rossey was not hurt.

When the race resumed, Matus had the point, followed by Felmlee, Wagner, Spithaler, Gallagher, Sodeman, and Brent Matus.
Brandon Matus and Felmlee flew out front by themselves for almost the entire race. Matus was able to stretch his lead even after he encountered the slower cars. Quite a distance behind them was Wagner, who went on to log his best finish ever at Tri-City Raceway Park. Taking fourth was Gallagher. Spithaler was fifth.
Sodeman rode old reliable to the sixth spot. McCandless, Brent Matus, Salisbury and Davey Jones completed the top ten
Taking the checkers in the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group heats for the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars were Bob Felmlee and Brandon Spithaler. There was no B Main.
Josh Seippel and Rod Laskey made up the front row for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stock A Main. Tyler Wyant and Jason Johns were in the second row, with Curtis J. Bish and Bobby Whitling in the third row, Darr Diegelman and Pat Fielding were in row four with Doug Iorio, II and points leader WIlliam Hurrelbrink behind them.
The feature was like a flashback to a golden age of Pro Stock racing at Tri-City Raceway Park. Three well-known racers positioned themselves at the front of the pack, and they had a private contest to see who would earn the bragging rights.
For most of the race, it appeared as though Laskey would take the checkers. However, Whitling was able to cool down his tires when there was a caution with twelve of the fifteen laps completed. That was just enough to allow him to surge ahead of Laskey when the green light flashed on for the final time. Johns stayed close to the leaders, but he was never able to get his nose into the middle of the action. Following those three veterans across the line was Josh Seippel, who was a relative newcomer when the others ruled the roost. Tyler Wyant, who was not even born yet when Whitling, Laskey, and Johns were in their prime, crossed in the fifth spot.
Taking sixth was Curtis J. Bish, followed by Fielding, Hurrelbrink, Iorio, and Diegelman.
The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks had two Donovan & Bauer Auto Group heat races. The winners were Rod Laskey and Bobby Whitling, familiar names to Pro Stock fans at Tri-City. There was no B Main.
Evan Sobieski and Kevin Watson paced the field for the start of the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stock feature. Pat Hanlonand D.J. Macrae were in row two, with Levi Maskal and Brody McClintock were in row three.
Dalton Speer started in eighth but he raced his way to the front. He got the win, with Austin Fedder finishing second. He was subbing for Chad Greeley. Justin Bailey was third, with Sobieski in fourth. Fifth went to Hemi Kinneston. Positions six through ten went to Patrick Lane, Kevin Watson, Michael Barr, Joanne WIlson, and Kevin Wice.
The 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks presented a pair of Donovan & Bauer Auto Group heat races as well. The successful drivers in that division were D.J. Macrae and Dalton Speer. There was no B Main. Brayden Seippel flipped his Mini Stock during the heat race in a three-car incident in turn one. He was not injured in the tumble.
An added class for the evening was the Vintage Modifieds. Taking the win was David Myers, followed by his father, ageless Les Myers. Tim Natalino, Dale Zimmer, and Jeff Manners rounded out the top five. Fred Hildenbrand, Paul St. John, Dave Phillips, Don Swingle, and Tom Warburton followed. The heat race wins belonged to David Myers and Tim Natalino. The preliminaries were presented by the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group.
Next week, Tri-City Raceway Park will celebrate the July 4 holiday with another Sunday Thunder race program presented by Big Dog RC. Added to the card will be a fabulous fireworks display. Remember that there will be no racing at Tri-City Raceway Park on Sunday, July 11. Racing will resume on July 18 with a Sprint Spectacular, faturing the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars, the Gary Glass Automotive and Washington House RUSH Sprints, the Junior Sprints, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, and the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks.

Schuchart Dominates $50,000-to-Win AGCO Jackson Nationals at Jackson Motorplex

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (June 27, 2021) - Logan Schuchart let out his best Ric Flair impression in Victory Lane on Sunday at Jackson Motorplex, where he mastered the final three quarters of the 43 rd annual AGCO Jackson Nationals main event to earn the $50,000 top prize.

"Hell yeah, man," he exclaimed. "$50,000. Woooooooo!"

Schuchart was just as entertaining in the arena as the 'Nature Boy' while putting it on his opponents, winning the highest-paying World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series feature so far this season by more than four seconds and lapping half of the field. The victory was his second straight at the crown jewel event and it made Schuchart one of five different winners during six nights of THE SHOWDOWN competition within the last eight days.

Schuchart took the lead on the start of the 35-lap race, but a caution on the opening lap set up a complete restart. David Gravel capitalized by darting from third into the lead after hitting the bottom in turns one and two and executing a slide job on Schuchart in turns three and four.

Gravel led the first seven laps before the second-and-final caution came out on Lap 8 when Donny Schatz, who was running fifth, stopped on the track. Gravel chose the inside lane for the double-file restart, but didn't launch into the lead when the green flag was waved. Gravel and Schuchart stayed side by side throughout three quarters of the lap before Gravel slid across the track in turns three and four. Schuchart turned underneath the slide job and narrowly led the lap.

That was as close as anyone got to Schuchart during the remainder of the race as he pulled away in traffic.

"You never know how long you should push," he said. "This is probably the best track we've had all week and it was during the day. The other night I started to be a little conservative to conserve tires and then Kerry (Madsen) blows right by me."

The aggressive approach on Sunday worked as Gravel finished 4.454 seconds behind Schuchart.

"He was good in lapped traffic," Gravel said. "I wish I had a better restart. It kind of stumbled and he got a run on me. He had the dominant car in traffic. I wish I had that chance to try to control the race in the lead.

"If we got to do it again we'd probably do a couple of things different. It's a little disappointing, but nothing to hang our heads about. It's definitely a positive day."

World of Outlaws points leader Brad Sweet passed Kerry Madsen, who won both preliminary nights, on Lap 19 to round out the podium.

"I think we were a little too tight to make the moves we wanted to in traffic," Sweet said. "That was a great race track. There were multiple lanes. Logan had the best car. I feel we were close to David."

Madsen finished fourth and Carson Macedo was fifth.

James McFadden, Gravel and Sheldon Haudenschild each won a qualifier. Schuchart was the King of the Hill winner, which netted a $500 bonus from Todd's Beer Cave and the pole position for the A Main. Madsen finished second in the King of the Hill to score a $250 prize from Todd's Beer Cave.

Reutzel, who won the inaugural BillionAuto.com Huset's 50 on Tuesday at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., had an opportunity to win a $100,000 bonus if he also captured the AGCO Jackson Nationals finale. Reutzel finished 15th in the A Main on Sunday.

The next event at Jackson Motorplex is July 9-10 featuring the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series and the Tri-State Late Models.

A night of firsts at Michael’s Mercer raceway during the summer nationals as Tommy Jasen(305 sprint), Shayne Izzo(FASTRAK mod), and Jim Fosnaught (pro stock) win their first ever Mercer features and Carl Ealy (mini stock) wins 2nd career.
By Jim Balentine
(Mercer, Pa) June 26 2021

On a warm early summer evening Michaels Mercer raceway celebrated the little guy summer nationals with two career first wins for Tommy Jasen and Shayne Izzo, and first Mercer win for Jim Fosnaught, and 2nd career for Carl Ealy. The whole show was completed by 9:34.

Tommy Jasen, who last season began his 305 sprint career and ended with the twin state auto racing club’s rookie of the year, drove a magnificent race to hold off veteran Steve Cousins and another up and comer Jarrett Rosencrance to pick up his first ever feature win worth $800 at the tricky bent egg shaped oval. Tommy happily said “this is incredible and an amazing accomplishment.. this becomes your life and I can’t be anymore thankful. We made some adjustments the car was really hooked up and the track was tacky. Party in the garage tonight!!” Steve Cousins ended up 2nd, Jarrett Rosencrance 3rd, Andy Cavanaugh 4th and Jake Gomola 5th.

For Shayne Izzo, victory lane has eluded him since he began in 2005, coming so close various times in his career and even finished 2nd in points in 2019. Izzo put it all together Saturday night holding off 15 time winner Eric Gabany to take the $800 in the 15 lap affair. “It’s amazing! it’s been long enough!! i finally got this monkey off my back!! we always came up short and I hope everything gets better now. I hope this is the first of many! I was waiting for Eric (Gabany)to make his move but I held the bottom and it worked out.” Eric Gabany was 2nd, Brian Schaffer 3rd, Bill Adams 4th, and Jeff Schaffer jr 5th.

Jim Fosnaught, who was a former Lernerville pro stock champion and who won a $2000 autumnmotivefest in 2014 scores his 2nd highest payday in his career by picking up his 1st ever Mercer pro stock checker worth $1000. Fosnaught led from the start and was going to win in dominating fashion until a last lap yellow put former raceway 7 champion Rusty Wheeler on his rear bumper. Wheeler tried a last ditch effort down the backchute into turn 3 but it wasn’t enough as Fosnaught went on to the win. A happy Jim stated, “ I haven’t ran much this year I took a step back I’ve run twice and I saw that the weather looked good and at last minute here I come…I looked at the board and saw Rusty Wheeler behind me but it didn’t rattle me! Any victory is a nice victory but it’s the 2nd biggest win and I haven’t been in victory lane since Marion center in 2018.” Rusty Wheeler was 2nd, Larry Kugel 3rd, Leigh Wheeler 4th, Jamie Duncan 5th.

$500 was on the line for the mini stocks in their 15 lap affair which brought in 29 cars necessitating a b main. In the feature 2 cautions plagued the start and once things settled down Willie Aley took the lead with Jordan Wheeler and Andy Thompson right behind. Aley and Wheeler would continue to battle side by side. Thompson and Carl Ealy would catch Wheeler on lap 5 with Wheeler trying to block Thompson, he would lose ground and Ealy would move into 2nd passing Wheeler. Aley would continue to lead until Wheeler was spun on the front stretch bring out the caution. On the restart Ealy would pass Aley in turn 2 with 5 laps to go and would extend his lead going on to his 2nd victory of 2021 and the 3rd time the car has won this season. Thompson who also won in the car would pass Aley for 2nd and finish in the runner up spot. Aley would be 3rd, Andy Proper from 10th would finish 4th and Adam Aley from 14th would end up 5th. Ealy stated he lost his transmission on the backstretch before the checkered.

PRICKETT SCORES WESTERN MIDGET RACING THRILLER AT VENTURA

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (June 26, 2021) – David Prickett of Fresno won a duel through lapped traffic with Brentwood’s Blake Bower to take Saturday’s Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction feature at Ventura Raceway. 18 WMR entries hit the one-fifth mile dirt track along the Pacific Ocean.

Bower, Oxnard’s Ricky Lewis, and Prickett split the three heat races, with Lakeside’s Darren Brent earning the pole starting position alongside Prickett. Prickett crossed over to the inside of Brent into turn one, emerging with the lead with Lewis and Bower in pursuit. Bower closed in on Prickett and looked inside, with the battle turning into a three-wide affair briefly in turn one.

Bower grabbed the lead before Prickett nabbed it back in lapped traffic. Lewis and Bower mounted challenges on the outside in lapped traffic for the lead in turn three.

Lewis looked inside Prickett in turn three and bounced off the side of him into a cone in the infield. Lewis continued with the cone lodged underneath him before using the berm in turn one to remove it, which required a caution for the debris. On the restart Megan Moorhead of Santa Paula and Brent both flipped in turn two with Joel Rayborne of West Covina stopped as well.

Prickett and Bower drove ahead on the restart while Lewis surrendered third for a moment to Arizona’s Cory Brown and Hawaiian Kala Keliinoi. Prickett took command in the closing stages for a 1.077 second victory over Bower, Lewis, and Brown. Trent Morley of Woodland Hills finished fifth in his series debut.

Western Midget Racing takes a few weeks off before returning on Friday July 16 at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif. during the 11th Howard Kaeding Classic.

Tanner Carrick wins a last lap thriller at Placerville Speedway on Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick performed some final lap magic at Placerville Speedway on Saturday, as the 19-year-old slipped to the inside of Jodie Robinson, before narrowly nipping her at the line to win an ultra-exciting Thompson’s Winged 360 Sprint Car feature.

The annual Bryan Carnett Clash saw a total of 94-cars pack the pit area at the Placerville bullring on Saturday. In addition to Carrick, also claiming victories at the event were Bobby Hogge with the Ltd. Late Models, Dan Jinkerson in the Pure Stocks, Ben Wiesz with the Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association and Ron Rezz with the Vintage Hard Tops.

Roseville’s Jodie Robinson was fresh off a solid outing at Ocean Speedway the previous night and rocketed into the lead at the waving of the green flag in the Winged 360 feature. The 18-year-old navigated the high-side to perfection and held a steady advantage over much of the 25-lapper, but the racing behind her remained entertaining. Point leader Joel Myers Jr., Andy Gregg, Tanner Carrick, Andy Forsberg and others fought high and low on the quarter-mile.

With the main event winding down things closed in lapped traffic, as Myers and Carrick looked to make something happen with Robinson out front. A late caution created the game changing restart however, and during it Carrick sliced to the inside of Myers to grab second, before coming after the lead. When Ron Stahl waved the white flag Carrick hit the bottom just how he wanted and drove under Robinson to snag the lead heading into the final corners.

Robinson attempted to dive back underneath heading down the front stretch, but Carrick was able to cross the stripe by an official margin of victory that read 0.265 seconds. It marked his third career triumph at the speedway and second this season. Despite not getting the win Robinson must be commended for driving an exceptional race to earn her best finish of 2021 in Placerville. Hanford’s Michael Faccinto continued his impressive string of events at the track, driving from 11th to third.

Andy Gregg had a very solid run in the feature as well to claim fourth, with Lincoln’s Blake Carrick rounding out the top-five. Joel Myers Jr., Kalib Henry, Kaleb Montgomery, Landon Brooks and Forsberg rounded out the top-10. Montgomery captured the B-main, while heat races went to Jake Andreotti, Landon Brooks, Myers Jr. and Gregg. Montgomery began the night by earning the ADCO Driveline Fast Time Award by pacing the 29-car field in qualifying with a lap of 10.721.

Whenever there is big money on the line and Bobby Hogge is in the field you know it’s going to be a tall order for the rest of the field. That turned out to be the fact on Saturday, although it didn’t come easy for the Salinas veteran over the waning stages of the 20-lapper. Lincoln’s Dan Brown Jr. led the early laps over teammate Jay Norton, but they soon felt pressure in the form of Hogge. The California icon carved his way to the inside on a restart and charged into the top-spot.

Hogge looked to be on way to an easy payday, but Brown Jr. found speed late in the going and closed right up to Hogge’s bumper. The duo raced close together but at the end it was Hogge who took home the $2,500 Carnett Clash grand prize. Brown finished second to earn a cool $1,500 while Norton will score $1,000 for his third-place effort. Dan Jinkerson and Clark Gugliomoni rounded out the top-five. Tyler Lightfoot, Kiely Ricardo, Tom Tilford, Rod Oliver and Kevin Jinkerson completed the top-10. Hogge and Norton claimed the two heat races, as a total of 17-cars competed at the Carnett.

The 20-lap Pure Stock feature was plagued by several cautions early on but nothing was slowing the fast moving Dan Jinkerson, who took home the $1,200 victory on Saturday. Brother Kevin and Nick Baldwin battled side by side over the opening stages, before Dan charged into the top-spot that he would never relinquish. It marked his 34th career victory at Placerville Speedway in the division.

Kevin Jinkerson crossed the stripe in second followed by Baldwin, Wayne Trimble, Chris McGinnis, Dave Silva, Matt Tilford, $500 mystery spot winner Phil Wilkins and Travis Emery in the top-10. Heat race wins were snagged by Kevin Jinkerson, Nick Baldwin and Dan Jinkerson. A total of 19 Pure Stocks were on hand to honor the late Bryan Carnett.

As customary the action with the Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association was exceptional on Saturday night. Several drivers battled up front racing on every square inch of the Placerville Speedway. Colfax competitor Ben Wiesz, Galt’s Ryan Winter, Fairfield’s Mike Grenert and Camino’s Shawn Whitney put on a show for the solid crowd on hand in the stands. Winter had moved into the lead and most thought that was going to be all she wrote, but Wiesz had other ideas as he tucked up to the inside and came after the top-spot.

The duo was fun to watch with Wiesz catfishing down low and Winter running the ragged edge of the bullring. Wiesz inched ahead and ultimately drove away to claim the win over Winter, Grenert, Whitney and Dylan Shrum in the top-five. Rounding out the top-10 in the 20-lap contest were 19th starter Josh Wiesz, Mike Reeder, Dan Geil, Gage Meyers and Corey Eaton. Heat race victories during the night were earned by Mike Grenert, Ben Wiesz and Dylan Shrum. A total of 21-cars competed on Saturday.

The Placerville Speedway returns to action this coming Sunday for the annual 4th of July Freedom Fireworks Spectacular. Tickets for the event go on sale Monday June 28th at 8am by visiting www.placervillespeedway.com

 

 

DALE BLANEY WINS $3000 IN "410" SPRINTS SATURDAY AT SHARON IN HIS 1ST RACE OF 2021; RUSH SPRINT STANDOUT CHAD RUHLMAN WINS 1ST OF THE YEAR; CAREER 1ST WIN FOR JACOB WOLFE IN RUSH MODS; WILL THOMAS REPEATS IN ECONO MODS

By Mike Leone

June 26, 2021

(Hartford, OH)…After a rainout, Sharon Speedway returned to action on a beautiful summer evening on Saturday night. Capturing victories on Kams Electric and Cortland Mower Night and celebrating in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane were Dale Blaney-Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars, Chad Ruhlman-Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars, Jacob Wolfe-HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and Will Thomas III-Whelen Econo Mods. A total of 96 race cars filled the pit area for the four-division program.

In 2018, Dale Blaney won at Sharon Speedway on August 11 to continue his streak of at least one victory for 29 consecutive years. In 2019, Dale won his father's "Lou Blaney Memorial" for the first time. Last year, Dale became an All Star Circuit of Champions Official, and with the Series off this weekend, the 57-year-old Hartford, Ohio driver made his 2021 season debut a successful one on Saturday night taking the lead on lap six and racing on for the $3,000 victory. Dale, who started sixth, became the sixth different winner in as many Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" races in 2021 at Sharon joining his brother Dave, who won the May 22 World of Outlaws show.

After May 15 winner, George Hobaugh, led the first five circuits, "The Low Rider", went to the outside and drove around Hobaugh on lap six. Blaney mastered the topside of the speedway for the remainder of the feature rim-riding to his 17th career Sharon "410" victory by 1.325 seconds, but first ever for Rich Farmer in the NAPA Auto Parts/Valvoline-sponsored #29. Carl Bowser, who finished runner-up in the Western PA Speedweek show on June 5, turned in another runner-up effort as he continues to look for his first career Sharon win. A.J. Flick went ninth to third over eighth starting Sye Lynch. Hobaugh dropped to fifth at the finish after leading the first five laps.

Completing the top 10 were Bob Felmlee, Brandon Matus, Dan Kuriger, Adam Kekich, and Darren Pifer. Hobaugh set the fastest time overall in qualifying over the 29-car field with a lap of 15.965. Hobaugh, Flick, and Felmlee won the heat races, while Davey Jones won the last chance B main.

The 2018 and 2019 Pace Performance RUSH Sprint Car Weekly Series Champion, Chad Ruhlman, returned to prominence on Saturday night. The 44-year-old Erie, Pa. resident started fourth and inherited the lead on lap five after a caution for leader Nolan Groves, who was chasing after his third consecutive win. Ruhlman then ran the topside of the speedway to perfection for the remainder of the 20-lap Terry Bowser Excavating feature for the $600 win.

Ruhlman became the third different winner in four races this year as he crossed the finish line first by a big 5.029-second margin in the Tim Engles-owned, Dirt Roads Logistics/Pennywell Sandblasting/Dotera Oils-sponsored #68. It was Ruhlman's all-time division-leading fifth career Sharon win. Seventeen-year-old Blaze Myers recorded his second straight runner-up finish. Veteran Arnie Kent was third for the second straight race and third time in four races! Amelia Clay was a career best fourth beating out hall of famer Rod George. Tyler Newhart, who is in his first full year of racing, charged from 17th to sixth. Kevin Ruhlman, Gale Ruth, Jr., Ricky Tucker, Jr., and Brad Blackshear rounded out the top 10. Chad Ruhlman and Myers won the heats over the 19-car field.

Improving fourth-year racer Jacob Wolfe became a first time winner on Saturday night. Wolfe led all 20 laps of the HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modified feature holding off a hard charging Justin Shea for his career first victory worth $500. Wolfe became the third different winner in four races in 2021 as the event was part of RUSH's Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly Series Championship and Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series.

The 24-year-old Warren, Ohio racer took the checkered flag first in his Liberty Steel/Beacon of the Valley-sponsored #7 by a margin of 0.578 seconds. Wolfe became the 19th different driver to win a Pace Performance RUSH Sportsman Modified feature at Sharon in the eight-year history of the division. Shea, who leads RUSH's Weekly Series points, came from 12th to record his fourth straight top five finish at Sharon, but still is in search of his first win.

Completing the top 10 were Kole Holden, Tony Tatgenhorst, Preston Cope, Brandon Ritchey, and J.C. Boyer. Wolfe, Kristyak, and Krummert won the heat races over the 24-car field.

Will Thomas III became the season's first repeat winner in the Econo Mods. The multi-division talent started sixth and passed Ty Rhoades for the lead on lap five and went on for the 20-lap Whelen feature victory, worth $400. The 45-year-old Sharpsville, Pa. former asphalt standout also has wins at Sharon in the RUSH Late Models and UMP Modifieds in addition to success in the Big-Block and RUSH Sportsman Modifieds.

Rhoades, who led the first four laps, had to settle for second. Points leader Jeremy Double was third after starting 17th as he's been on the podium all four races this year.

C. MYERS, GENTRY, J. SMITH, MOORE & JAMES POST WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY'S MID SEASON VICTORIES

​Orrvile, Ohio

​Saturday, June 26, 2021

​By Mike Swanger

​ It was the hottest night of the season and the action was just as hot on the track as Wayne County Speedway's Mid Season championship was held with double points up for grabs in the O'Reilly Auto Parts 'Race to the Championship' point standings along with prizes from the Contingency Connection's Racers Rewards program. The Pine Tree Towing & Recovery Sprints took to the 3/8 mile oval first as Tyler Street used his pole position to grab the lead at the drop of the green flag. As the field was working on lap two, the red flag would wave as Leyton Wagner and Nick Patterson got together on the back stretch with Patterson flipping, ending both of their nights. With the race resuming, Street set the pace as Henry Malcuit took second from Jamie Myers followed by Chris Myers and Ricky Peterson. The red flag was back out on lap three as Dylan Kingan and Wyatt Zimmerman made contact in turn one as both ended up flipping with Zimmerman going over the guardrail. All drivers were ok in the 2 red flags. A caution on lap six for a spun R J Jacobs would keep the field bunched together and as the race went back to green, Peterson moved into third behind Street and Malcuit and those three pulled away from the field. On lap 11, Chris Myers took fourth from Jamie Myers which would be a major move. With the three leaders beginning to pick their way through slower cars, trouble for them was brewing on lap 16 as Jack Sodeman Jr got sideways in turn three as the leaders were bearing down on him. Sodeman Jr. was hit by Jason Dolick's car and that sent Street into the guardrail breaking his car while Peterson made contact and rolled over and Malcuit slide into the stopped cars of Sodeman and Dolick. Street who has now lead in three different races at WCS has been collected in lapped car incidents in all three. Street and Petersons cars had to be towed off while Malcuit was not able to continue either. This put Chris and Jamie Myers into the top two spots with points leader Broc Martin and Dean Jacobs following. With no more interruptions in the race, Chris Myers started to stretch his lead out as Martin and Jacobs would go back and forth for third as both got past Jamie Myers with three laps to go as Martin claimed second for good at that point but could not catch up to Chris Myers as the Caldwell driver put the Kempthorn Auto Parts, Pine Tree Towing & Recovery and Cramer's Sheet Metal #38k into the Summit Racing victory circle for the first time as Martin, Jacobs, Jamie Myers and Danny Mumaw scored top five's. Chris Myers, Peterson and Malcuit topped the heats.

The top two in the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Model feature would start on the front row with points leader Mitch Caskey grabbing the point from Ryan Markham at the drop of the green flag. Three cautions in the first six laps kept everyone close together but after that Caskey would open up a gap over Markham, Brett Bee, J R Gentry and Shane McLoughlin. Going down the back stretch on lap 19, Caskey would slide into the infield with problems to bring out the caution and right after that, Markham went pitside with a flat tire and would return, On the restart, McLoughlin and Bee made contact in turn one that ended both of their chances of a top five or better finish with both going to the pits. Markham took advantage of this restart to get back to second but Gentry and his Wooster based El Campesino Restaurant, Holmes Pest Control and Skurts Custom Apparel #14 could not be caught and recorded his second win of the year. Markham finished second as Craig Hartong, Jerry Aber and Tyler Evans filled out the top five and all three collected their best finishes of the season. Heat wins went to Wes Morrison and Mike Bores.

The CORBON Ammunition Modifieds had the race of the night with Nashport's Jimmy Smith grabbing the lead at the start with Kyle Moore taking second from Drew Smith on lap three and put the pressure on Jimmy Smith quickly. As both drivers running almost the exact same line, Smith would hold off Moore, who was looking for his 6th win in a row. Moore would edge past Smith on lap eight only to give it back on the next circuit as Smith used the very high line to reclaim the point. Moore would tuck under Smith coming out of turn two on lap 15 to take back the lead and kept it on lap 16 when a caution waved. On the restart, Smith went low into turn one and slide up in front of Moore to recapture the lead and for the final four circuits, kept Moore at bay and put the MPW, Porta Kleen and McMahon Truck #11j into victory lane for the 1st time, Moore finished second with Drew Smith, Garrett Rons and Jim Plance rounding out the top five in their first visit to 'Orrvile's Historic Oval'. Moore and Jimmy Smith won the heat races.

Kyle Moore would not waste any time in the McKenzie Concrete Super Stock feature as he passed front row starters Jimmy Humphrey and Seth Dickerson on the opening lap and the only thing that kept the race close was three cautions in the first six laps. The Mansfield driver and his R C Kuhn & Sons, Corbon Ammunition and United Concrete #21d would build a huge lead and win by just under 7 seconds over Paul Holmes who had a tight race going on with Humphrey until lap nine when Humphrey's car puffed a lot of smoke and he pulled into the infield as Chase Alexander moved into third holding off Tyler Wiles, who finished fourth. Don Baney ended with his season best of fifth. Moore and Matt Shroyer collected the heat wins.

Doug Hensel set the pace for the opening three circuits of the JoyRide Transport Mini Stock main but Jordan James took over on lap 4 and then held off Hensel the rest of the way to score his fourth win of the season aboard the Loudonville based Ugly Duck Bar & Grill, Lorentz Lawn Care and Harris Automotive #83. Staying within a car length of James, Hensel could never get a run to reclaim the lead. Jolene Voshel finished third with her best finish of the season as Kyle Petit and David Keagy finished fourth and fifth. Heat winners were Ryan Carder and James.

The next racing action at Wayne County Speedway will be on SUNDAY, July 4th, with another Fast Five program that will feature round three of the King of the County Sprint Challenge with $3,500 going to the winner. Gates will open at 3 pm with hot laps at 6 pm and racing at 7 pm.

Foos gets third win of the year at Fremont; Weaver earns 2nd 305 victory

Saturday, June 26, 2021

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – DJ Foos sliced his way through lapped traffic and then survived a late race caution to score his third 410 sprint victory of the season at Fremont Speedway Saturday, June 26 on Willies Sales & Service Night.

Paul Weaver took the lead with just five laps to go in a tremendous Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature that saw him, Dustin Stroup and Alvin Roepke battle hard the last 12 laps. Weaver went on to score his second victory of the season at Fremont and the 61st of his career at “The Track That Action Built” to put him fourth on the track’s all-time win list.

The Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature was just as entertaining as teammates Shawn Valenti and Jeff Babcock tangled on a restart with three laps to go with 12th starter Jamie Miller driving into the lead with just two laps to go to score his second straight truck feature win. It was Miller’s 25th career victory at the track.

Foos, from Fremont, Ohio, led all 30 laps of the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint A-main but it wasn’t an easy victory. Heavy lapped traffic forced him to make daring moves aboard his Burmeister Racing machine to maintain the lead as Nate Dussel closed several times. A caution with three laps to go put Dussel right on Foos’ rear bumper but the 2019 Attica Fremont Championship Series champion was able to hold off Dussel to score the win, the 20th of his career at Fremont.

“I knew I had to get the jump on the start. I squeezed Nate up a little there on the start…I didn’t mean to. My car was just so good. I didn’t want that last caution because I could move around to get through lapped traffic. We struggled at the beginning of speedweek but my guys worked hard and we found great speed later and it paid off tonight,” said Foos beside his Crown Battery, CR Juices, All in Tent Rentals, Dave Story Equipment, Burmeister Trophy, Sonny’s Signs, Vantage Branding, The Jet Express, BRS, Kistler Engines, Kistler Racing Products backed #16.

The win propelled Foos to the front of the standing of the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group.

Weaver worked his way forward in the 25-lap 305 feature as Stroup and Roepke battled lap after lap early. With seven laps to go it was a tremendous three car battle for the lead. Stroup led laps 1-17 with Roepke leading lap 18 and Stroup back to the point on lap 19 with Weaver driving into the lead on lap 20 and taking the win.

“I crept in on them as they were battling to stay on the bottom and I had one shot in three and four to make a good lap and that’s all it took. I only made one good lap,” said Weaver beside his Adkins Motorsports, B&B Drain Services, M & L Excavating, Hampshire Racing Engines backed #1W.

Weaver pads his lead in the NAPA of Bryan 305 AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales.

In the 20-lap dirt truck feature Shawn Valenti grabbed the early lead while a fantastic battle ensued for second involving Keith Sorg and Jeff Babcock. By the half-way mark Valenti led Babcock, Sorg, a charging Miller and Cory Ward. Just as things were heating up, the caution flew with three laps to go. On the restart contact between Valenti and Babcock sent Valenti spinning. On the restart Miller drove around Babcock to take the lead and drove to the win.

“This thing was bad fast tonight. Everyone was trying to run down on the bottom and I figured out I was really good in the middle and could carry my speed well and get a good run down the back stretch. I hated to see Shawn get taken out by his teammate like that but I think I would have passed them any way. Tim Baker and Ron Miller…this truck is bad fast and I love it,” said Miller of his Ron Miller Race Cars, Fostoria Mod Shop backed #4m.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, July 10 on Baumann Auto Group Night featuring the AFCS 410 and 305 sprints and dirt trucks.

Pirtek Renegades

Superior, WI (June 25, 2021) by: Terry Lenhertz
The winged Pirtek Renegades made their annual solstice trek to the Gondik Law Speedway in Superior on Friday, joining the traditional sprints of the Northern Renegades off the southern shores of gichi-gami. Chase Viebrock and Caley Emerson snared wins in the qualifiers, while Patrick Heikkinen amassed the most passing points.

For the 20-lap main event, it was Duluth’s Lance Solem and Heikkinen pacing the field to green with Heikkinen squirting to the point followed by Viebrock and Solem through the first set of turns. With Viebrock on a dominating 5-race winning streak, Heikkinen was going to have to be perfect if he had any hopes of denying Viebrock a victory for the first time in nearly two months. And perfect he was. Even a mid-race caution couldn’t rattle the Eveleth, Minnesota chauffeur in what turned out to be a flag to flag win for Heikkinen, the first of his Pirtek Renegade career. The win was especially sweet in that the previous summer, Heikkinen lead all but the last 200 feet of the Superior race, and the euphoria was abundantly evident as the #13 team celebrated in Rock Auto victory lane. Viebrock had to settle for second, with Solem, Mark Chevalier and Emerson rounding out the top five.

For the Northern Renegades, the traditional heat race wins went to Jori Hughes and “The Joker” Chris Lewis, while Ken Hron scored his second Renegade win in as many weeks with a victory in the 20-lap finale. Lewis crossed the stripe second, in front of Hughes, Emerson and Zach Olson.

The traditional Pirtek Renegades are back in action on Saturday, June 26, at Cedar Lake Speedway on Saturday, and again next Friday, July 2 joining the World of Outlaw sprints at Cedar Lake. The winged sprints’ next event is night two of Outlaw weekend, teaming up with them on Saturday, July 3.

 

 

Alysha Bay Dominates CRSA Sprints For First Utica-Rome Victory

Race Report by Steven Ovens – June 25th, 2021 – CRSA Sprints photo –

(VERNON, NY) – The Super Gen Products with Champion Power Equipment CRSA Sprints joined associate sponsor A-Verdi Storage Containers and headed East to the Brett Deyo-promoted Utica-Rome Speedway. A huge crowd turned out for the 243rd event in CRSA Sprints history and 15th event ever held at the “Home of Heroes” dating back to the inaugural season in 2006.

Alysha Bay has experience at Utica-Rome in “Cole Cup” competition with the 360 sprint cars, competing with her 305 sprinter. But Friday night was a whole new deal as she was competing against a field of 24 sprint cars all vying for glory at the track made famous by the likes of Richie Evans, Mitch Gibbs, Bobby Varin, Stewart Friesen and Matt Sheppard.

All 24 cars took the green flag from Utica-Rome chief starter Joe Kriss but he would quickly have to exchange his green flag for his red flag as a massive accident involving 8 cars broke out on the backstretch. Chase Moran and Tom Fletcher both got upside down with cars scattering every which way trying to avoid contact. Brandyn Griffin and Steve Glover also went pit side with heavy damage and could not refire.

Once the green flag was displayed Bay took to finding any and all grip along the low lane of the speedway to jump out quickly to a four-car length advantage. The fast mover behind the Alysha’s Cut & Curl machine was Stephentown, NY’s Matt Tanner who was making a rare appearance in CRSA competition driving the 56 car for owner Mike VanDusen.

While Tanner had cracked into the Top 5 for the first time all night, another driver suffered misfortune in getting upside down over the banking in Turn 1. Manchester, NY’s Ethan Gray, known in 2021 as the “Mullet Bullet,” turned the Ballard Sports 17E over drawing a red flag.

A stretch of green flag laps in the middle portion of the race saw Tanner start to take a bite out of the lead that Bay was able to get on every start and restart. Tanner was taking the long way around the top of Utica-Rome’s fast half-mile but had to have near-perfect laps to make up time with big runs off of Turn 2 and Turn 4.

The race would be slowed one final time on Lap 18 when 16-year old South Onandaga resident Tucker Donath, making his first ever CRSA Sprints start after graduating from go-karts, spun just ahead of the leaders in Turn 2. This set up a thrilling green-white-checkered finish.

Bay opened up just enough of a gap on the green flag to keep Tanner an arm’s reach back for the two-lap dash to Kriss’ checkered flags. Tanner didn’t give up on running the top lane but there just wasn’t enough time to build up enough momentum to mount a challenge. Bay took her first Utica-Rome Speedway checkered flag by two car-lengths and 0.387 on the stop watch.

“I told everyone this year I wasn’t going to run the full CRSA Sprints schedule, but Utica-Rome was definitely on my list. I love this place,” said Bay.

There was no doubting that laps on the track in the past running against the 360 sprint cars was a benefit in searching for a groove to make speed.

“I was having a better time finding moisture and grip in Turns 1 and 2. They said the 56 was running the top but I stayed where this car likes to run and never saw him.”

Tanner was happy to put a good run together, race close with his longtime girlfriend Emily in the heat race and bring home a podium finish.

“Great night all around, we got to race side by side in the heat. She gave me a run there. Then in the feature we drove up through and happy to have the VanDusen’s give me an opportunity to drive for them tonight in front of a good crowd,” said Tanner.

Dana Wagner is starting to get things righted around after some recent tough luck at Weedsport Speedway.

“We had the car rolling good, just need to get better at that redraw stuff,” explained Wagner. “It’s hard coming from the back like that but we will keep working on it and come back and do it again.”

The Powdertech Powdercoating Hard Charger Bonus went to Spencer, NY’s Kyle Pierce who started in position number twenty and charged eleven spots to finish ninth.

Rookie competitor out of Hannibal, NY- Jordan Hutton made an exciting move late in the race to crack into the Top 5 and slide into the fourth spot. This move on a late race restart earned him the “Maguire Family of Dealerships Magnificent Move of the Race.”

The award drivers are appreciative of but don’t necessarily want to see at night’s end was awarded to Chase Moran after his race ended just as quickly as it got started, flipping down the Utica-Rome back straightaway. A 24th place finish earned Moran the “Midstate Basement Authorities Out of the Basement” award.

CRSA Fonda Notes:

The cutest new addition to the CRSA Sprints family “Reed Matthew” and his mom Emily VanInwegen and dad Matt Tanner driving the Mike VanDusen owned No. 56 would join CRSA for the first time in 2021. In fact, Emily and Matt found each other on the front row for Heat Race No. 1. A huge welcome back and congratulations to both drivers, Reed and families.

Cory Sparks returned to CRSA Sprints competition on this night, as did Mike Kiser who scored a podium finish on June 5 at Fonda.

Tom Fletcher was aboard the No. 53 that has two series wins on the year with Bobby Parrow at the wheel. Unfortunately for Fletcher, his night ended on the hook as he paired up with Chase Moran for a double flip down the backstretch. Add Ethan Gray to the bad luck bus as they finally got their mechanical woes corrected but got upside down in Turn 1 during this night’s A-Main.

Next on the schedule for the Super Gen Products / Champion Power Equipment CRSA Sprints is a trip to West Haven, Vermont and the Devil’s Bowl Speedway on Saturday July 3rd in a 305/360 Challenge Race with the SCoNE (Sprint Cars of New England) 360 Sprint Cars. Quickly followed by a Friday night trip to Afton Motorsports Park on Friday July 9th.

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.

THIRD WIN OF 2021 FOR BUD KAEDING IN FRIDAY NIGHT OCEAN SPRINTS MARATHON

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (June 26, 2021) – “Outwit, outplay, outlast” was the motto for Friday’s Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo feature, as Bud Kaeding survived a challenging main event to fend off several young chargers for his third feature win of the season.

Clovis’ Corey Day earned fast-time honors but did not start the main event. Roseville’s Jodie Robinson won the dash for the pole position of the 30-lap contest. She drove ahead of former USAC West Coast 360 champion Tristan Guardino at the start of the feature. The leaders encountered lapped traffic by lap five. Guardino showed Robinson a nose into turn one. Robinson then aggressively split the lapped cars into turn three to crowd approval, before Adam Kaeding went over the edge and stopped for a caution flag.

Robinson picked up her front wheels on the restart and surrendered the lead to Guardino. Jason Chisum slowed for a caution on the following circuit. Kaeding pounced on the restart, soaring past both Robinson and Guardino into turn one for a lead he would never relinquish despite multiple restarts.

2019 Ocean Sprints champion J.J. Ringo followed Kaeding up to second position as well. Nick Ringo drove over an infield tire in turn three for a caution on lap 11. Cautions flew again on the restart attempt when Jeremy Chisum and Adam Kaeding tangled in turn two. Robinson passed J.J. Ringo for second on the restart, before they made contact entering turn one with Ringo’s car briefly on top of Robinson’s tail tank. The furious battle was slowed by Nick Ringo stopped in turn three a lap later. An additional caution fell on lap 14 for Kurt Nelson and 2020 champion Mitchell Faccinto tied up after a battle for fifth in turn three.

Guardino used the inside into turn three to snooker the lead from Kaeding on lap 15. Kaeding picked up a big run on the outside on the backstretch the following lap, moving past Guardino for the lead as Guardino spun for a caution flag. Kaeding led Robinson into the restart, before a caution for Guardino, Connor Danell, and Bradley Dillard tangled in turn two. This caution necessitated a red flag for a fuel stop after a combined 70 laps had been run around the speedway.

J.J. Ringo, tenth starting Joey Ancona, and Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick all moved past Robinson following the restart. Zane Blanchard drove from 17th starting position to just outside the top-five as well. Lapped traffic added to the drama for Kaeding with five laps to go, allowing J.J. Ringo to close in quickly.

Kaeding’s lead fell to a car length with two laps to go, with a nifty over-under move into turn three on a pair of lapped cars giving Kaeding the separation he needed. Kaeding took the checkered flag in the hour-long affair over Ringo, Ancona, Carrick, and Robinson.

Brentwood’s Blake Bower won his third Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction feature of the year by taking the 20-lap main event. Bower and 2021 points leader David Prickett of Fresno split the eight-lap heat races.

Bower and Prickett lined up on the third row for the 20-lap main event. Contact between Prickett and Cameron Beard during the opening lap scramble into turn one ended Prickett’s night early and required a caution flag. When racing resumed, Hawaiian Kala Keliinoi took the lead from Atascadero’s Randi Pankratz. Bower drove into the lead on lap two.

Citrus Heights’ D.J. Freitas made his debut in the No.7 Spike Chassis and drove from eight starting position into second place using the outside line. Freitas went on to challenge Bower on a few attempts, but Bower drove ahead for the win. Keliinoi won a race-long battle with Pankratz for third with Megan Moorhead of Santa Paula finishing closely behind in fifth.

Brentwood’s Fred Ryland won his fourth IMCA Sport Modified main event of 2021 in Watsonville. Oakley’s Scott Foster led lap one before falling backwards in a hurry, with 2020 champion Adriane Frost of Watsonville leading lap two. Fourth-starting Ryland led lap three with Foster falling to ninth by lap four. The caution flew for Randy Miller of San Jose spinning. Antioch’s Todd Gomez pitted under the caution but rejoined the race.

Miller was quickly up to fourth by lap seven from the rear of the field. 15-year-old Andrew Pearce made a run from ninth starting position, passing Frost for third. A restart on lap 15 gave Pearce a shot to slide past Trevor Clymens for second as well. Ryland, Pearce, Miller, Clymens, and Kelly Campanile were the top-five.

San Jose’s Mark Biscardi won the South Bay Dwarf Car feature, leading wire-to-wire in the 20 lapper. Camarillo’s Tommy Velasquez III drove up to second early then spun in turn three on lap nine. Velasquez made quick work of the pack, challenging Concord’s Travis Day for second just a few laps later. Velasquez finally won the battle for the position on lap 16. Biscardi led Velasquez, Day, Trafton Chandler, and Eric Weisler as the top-five finishers.

Watsonville’s Richard Mitchell won his second Four Banger main event of the year. Kate Beardsley finished second followed by points leader Tony Gullo as the only lead lap finishers.

Ocean Speedway returns on Friday July 9 with the Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo, IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Mods, Four Bangers, and South Bay Dwarf Cars.

 

 

16-year-old Flexes Muscles in Front of Hometown Crowd at HOT ‘Bandits MDA Night
 

Spoiler alert: click here for victory lane celebration and interview: https://youtu.be/Mys1H3CwbWo


Elm Mott, TX (06/26/21) by DarinShort.com. Fresh off his first ever Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series win at KENNEDALE SPEEDWAY PARK just six days earlier, 16-year-old Chase Randall would collect his second victory in a row at Heart O' Texas Speedway during “Musclin’ in the Dirt” for MDA on Friday June 25th.
But it was far from a cake walk.
When the green flag was unfurled at the beginning of the 25-lapper, top qualifier Claud Estes III would vault out to the lead by 5 car lengths only to get passed at the end of the first circuit by John Ricketts in the Cabinets by Tommy sprinter.
Estes would battle back as the pair raced side-by-side for a half a lap when Ricketts would find grip on the bottom groove and pull out to an eight car-length lead.
While Ricketts and Estes would race around the bottom, Randall would experiment with various high and middle lines. His momentum in the middle of the track would allow him to cruise by Estes on the high side of corner two on lap eight.
Following that same successful plan of attack, Randall would catch leader Ricketts on lap 10 and blast by him on the high side of corner two as well.
At that point, the lead cars were in dense lapped traffic as the event continued to run green flag laps at a rapid pace.
Ricketts would hold within just a car length or two of Randall while maneuvering through solid lapped traffic lap after lap until lap 18 when Rodney Henderson would break and rolled to a stop in corner four.
With the lapped cars pulled out on the ensuing restart, it would be Chase Randall out front on the point, with Ricketts, Estes III and 16th place starter Jeb Sessums in tow.
When the event resumed, Randall would jet out to the lead with Ricketts and Estes III waging a two-wide duel that would finally end two laps later when Ricketts would take command of second place.
The event went green for another four laps when the yellow would come out for the second and final time for a quick spin by Blaine Baxter in corner two.
Baxter, a recent California transplant to Texas, has 9 years of racing experience – yet only at the ripe age of 13 – and this was his first time racing a sprint car. Race fans in attendance could clearly see his talent on display already, and we’re all excited to watch him grow his racing career as a sprint car driver.
With now just four laps to go on the restart, Randall would continue with the lead over Ricketts, Estes, Sessums and 2020 ‘Bandits champion Michael Day.
At the checkers, Randall would take the win by five car lengths much to the approval of the hometown crowd – as this was his first ‘Bandits win at Heart O’ Texas after several close calls in the past.

We would like to thank the entire crew of Heart O’ Texas Speedway for a FANtastic night of racing – even with a 102 heat index, as faster cars were able to advance from their starting positions during the event. Great job to track promoter Selby Holder & crew! And what a great crowd!
Next up for the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series is a 4th of July Holiday Doubleheader on Saturday July 3rd at 82 Speedway in Petty, Texas and Sunday July 4th at LoneStar Speedway near Kilgore, Texas!
With Channin Tankersley missing out on this points event (due to family illness), there is going to be a shakeup in series points. The updated points will be posted separately in the days to come.

Kerry Madsen Scores Second Straight AGCO Jackson Nationals Preliminary Night Victory at Jackson Motorplex

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (June 25, 2021) - Kerry Madsen is on a mission this week at Jackson Motorplex, where he remains undefeated through a pair of AGCO Jackson Nationals preliminary nights.

Madsen led the final 18 laps of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series feature on Friday to become the first driver to sweep both preliminary nights of the crown jewel event since Jason Johnson accomplished the feat in 2018.

"I'm having a lot of fun driving it," Madsen said. "I have a lot of confidence."

The second straight triumph during the penultimate night of THE SHOWDOWN was Madsen's 27th career victory with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt' and it secured a spot into the King of the Hill event on Saturday that will determine the first four rows of the $50,000-to-win finale.

Carson Macedo, World of Outlaws points leader Brad Sweet and Logan Schuchart also earned a spot into the King of the Hill after accumulating the most event points through two nights of the 43rd annual AGCO Jackson Nationals.

Madsen had an easier route to Victory Lane on Friday - a night after charging from 14th to the win. This time he started sixth. Madsen advanced into fifth place on the opening lap. He maneuvered from fifth to third during a restart on Lap 5. Madsen took second place on Lap 8 and he powered into the lead on Lap 13 just as Macedo, who led 11 of the first dozen laps - Sweet led Lap 6 - entered traffic.

A caution on Lap 14 as well as one on the restart brought out the only remaining yellow flags. Madsen comfortably maintained the lead for the remainder of the race, but the war between second through fourth was intense throughout the final 10 laps.

Macedo came out on top of a wild three-car battle with Schuchart and Sweet, earning a runner-up result to put himself in a great position entering Saturday's finale.

"I feel good to be locked in," Macedo said. "I made a couple mistakes that I need to clean up for tomorrow. We're fortunate to be here and fortunate to be racing for big money this weekend."

Schuchart finished third for his 16th top five of the season with the World of Outlaws.

"We were able to make some clean passes to get ourselves up there," he said. "The 14 guys are fast right now, but I feel good about what we have going on. I felt really good in that feature."

Sweet placed fourth and Shane Golobic scored his first top five of the season with the series with a fifth-place showing.

Schuchart set quick time during qualifying to open the night's competition. Jack Dover, Kraig Kinser, D.J. Netto and Madsen each won a heat race. Macedo claimed the dash and Jacob Allen was victorious in the Last Chance Showdown.

The $50,000-to-win AGCO Jackson Nationals comes to a conclusion on Saturday with the pits opening at 2 p.m. and the main gates at 4 p.m. Hot laps begin at approximately 7 p.m. with racing to follow.

Aaron Reutzel, who won the BillionAuto.com Huset's 50 on Tuesday at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., ranks 15th in AGCO Jackson Nationals points following the two preliminary nights. Reutzel will start third in a qualifier on Saturday and he will need to win the race in order to advance into the King of the Hill. If Reutzel captures Saturday's AGCO Jackson Nationals A Main he will receive a $100,000 bonus on top of the stout payout to win.

Tickets for the final night of the AGCO Jackson Nationals, including discounted specials, are available online at https://mpv.tickets.com/schedule/?agency=JKMV_PL_MPV&orgid=55369#/?view=list&includePackages=true or can be purchased at the track.

Kerry Madsen Hustles From 14th to Capture AGCO Jackson Nationals Opener at Jackson Motorplex

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (June 24, 2021) - Change Kerry Madsen's nickname from the 'Mad Man' to the 'Happy Man' after a thrilling charge from 14th earned the victory on Thursday evening during the opening round of the 43rd annual AGCO Jackson Nationals hosted by Jackson Motorplex.

Madsen was all smiles in Victory Lane after leading the final five laps of the 30-lap World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series feature during Night 4 of THE SHOWDOWN. The 14th starting position was the deepest for a World of Outlaws feature winner this season and it garnered the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

"It's so much fun to drive this race car," said Madsen, who has enjoyed a successful venture in limited races since teaming up with Tony Stewart Racing. "I just got up and went for it and committed to the top and never lifted."

It paid off as most of the drivers fought for the bottom early in the main event. Madsen was ninth on the opening lap and he took advantage of the first caution of the race on Lap 6 to bunch the field together. He powered into fourth on the restart. A lap later Madsen cracked the podium and on Lap 8 he passed David Gravel for the runner-up position.

"I knew all night," Madsen said of how good his race car handled. "We just got a raw deal in the heat. I was really disappointed because I knew how good this car was. (I thought) we'll get a good finish and get some points. I got an awesome start and the car was just unbelievable."

Although Madsen quickly worked from 14th to second, Logan Schuchart maintained the top spot from the drop of the green flag. He moved up the track and held off several attempts at slide jobs by Madsen midway through the race. Traffic in the final quarter of the feature allowed Madsen to close the gap again and he pounced on Lap 26, dropping to the bottom and sliding both Schuchart and Justin Henderson - the last car on the lead lap.

Madsen led the lap by three tenths of a second and the final caution of the race occurred on the ensuing lap, giving Madsen a clean track for the final four-lap shootout. He held off Schuchart to win by 0.682 of a second.

"I feel like if a caution came out a lap before or a lap later maybe it'd be a different outcome," Schuchart said. "I followed the No. 7 car in the last two laps. When you're up top and you're running so good it's hard to make yourself drive across there when you're leading it. We'll take second tonight and hopefully we can get a win tomorrow or be up there close. We're in the hunt. We're going to go for that $50,000 on Saturday."

Gravel rounded out the podium to post his 18th top five of the season during World of Outlaws competition.

"Logan was really, really good early," he said. "The yellow came out (on Lap 6) and I was like I have to try something different. I moved up and he moved up. Then here comes Kerry blowing by me.

"We had a good car at the end. When you start on the pole and don't win it's not what you want. There's a couple of things we'll change for tomorrow and keep working hard."

James McFadden placed fourth and Carson Macedo ended fifth.

Madsen set quick time to kick off the night for the 36 drivers. D.J. Netto, Wayne Johnson, Jason Sides and Tim Kaeding each won a heat race. Gravel picked up the dash victory and Parker Price-Miller claimed the Last Chance Showdown.

Schuchart holds a one-point lead over Gravel in the event standings after Night 1. World of Outlaws points leader Brad Sweet ranks third - only two points behind Schuchart - with McFadden three points out of the lead. Madsen rounds out the top five - five points behind Schuchart.

Round 2 of the AGCO Jackson Nationals is Friday. The pits open at 2 p.m. and the main gates at 4 p.m. Hot laps begin at approximately 7 p.m. with racing to follow.

Reutzel Captures $30,000-to-Win BillionAuto.com Huset's 50 at Huset's Speedway and Puts Himself in Contention for $100,000 Bonus at Jackson Motorplex

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 22, 2021) - Aaron Reutzel has four days to dream about how many ways he can spend a $100,000 bonus.

Reutzel is $30,000 richer after leading the distance of the inaugural 50-lap BillionAuto.com Huset's 50 hosted by Huset's Speedway on Tuesday night. It was Reutzel's third World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series victory of the season and came at a great time during the best-paying race of the World of Outlaws season thus far.

Equally as important, the stout performance locked Reutzel in as the lone driver who has a six-figure bonus dangling in front of him. If Reutzel wins the AGCO Jackson Nationals finale, which pays $50,000 to the winner, on Saturday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., he will receive a $100,000 bonus for a total payout of $180,000 between the two marquee events.

"We're going to worry about celebrating tonight and then tomorrow we'll start thinking about that bonus," he said in Victory Lane.

Reutzel was certainly on a mission on Tuesday as he won the dash to garner the pole position for the main event. However, Donny Schatz took the top spot on the opening circuit and Reutzel was involved in an incident in turn one as the field worked to complete Lap 1. Carson Macedo dove low as Reutzel turned to block the bottom lane. The duo made contact and Macedo received the worst of it, sliding up the track and flipping into the catch fence that lines the outside of the dirt oval.

Macedo was okay and restarted the feature, which showcased a complete restart because the entire field hadn't completed the first lap. Reutzel took advantage of the redo and quickly powered into the lead.

The second red flag of the race occurred on Lap 5 when Lynton Jeffrey and Jacob Allen collided, and the only other stoppage was on Lap 31 for the planned mid-race caution. Teams were allowed to make changes, including tires, before tackling the final 20 laps of the race.

"I started getting a bad vibration when I started running the cushion," said Reutzel, who mentioned that his team only made a couple of minor changes during the pit stop. "We made those changes and I felt really good about the car.

"We threw something at it this weekend. I felt we were pretty good there. We didn't make any changes all night. That makes me pretty nervous. In that open red (we changed) one or two little things I felt to make us better. It was great. It's a really good time to find some speed. Hopefully we can keep it up. There's a lot of money on the line the next couple of months."

Reuzel was just as efficient during the final 20 laps, which went caution-free. Traffic allowed Schatz to close within a few tenths of a second before World of Outlaws points leader Brad Sweet slid into second place on Lap 43. Reutzel maintained an advantage of a little more than one second for the remainder of the race before winning by 1.160 seconds.

"In clean air Aaron was good," Sweet said. "At the very end there we didn't get enough lapped traffic. The track was in good shape. I don't think the pit stop hurt, but I'd have liked to seen it go the whole way.

"I left it all out there. I don't think I could have done anything different. We'll be happy with second tonight and move on to Jackson and keep our eye on the prize."

Schatz finished third for his second straight podium at Huset's Speedway.

"We'll have to accept third tonight," he said. "The longer I went the more I was hanging on. We'll go on to Jackson and see if we can improve on this."

Sheldon Haudenschild placed fourth and NASCAR star Kyle Larson advanced from 11th to fifth.

Spencer Bayston and Logan Schuchart set quick time during their qualifying groups before Sweet, Reutzel, Schuchart and Macedo each won a heat race. Cory Eliason was the Last Chance Showdown winner.

Sixth-place finisher James McFadden earned a $500 bonus from Mike Brudigan Home Loans for being the overall BillionAuto.com Huset's 50 Hard Charger.

The $200 Todd's Beer Cave Hard Luck Award went to Macedo.

THE SHOWDOWN continues Thursday through Saturday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., for the 43rd annual AGCO Jackson Nationals. Advanced tickets, including discounted specials, are available at https://mpv.tickets.com/schedule/?agency=JKMV_PL_MPV&orgid=55369#/?view=list&includePackages=true .

Gravel Victorious During BillionAuto.com Huset's 50 Opener at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 21, 2021) - David Gravel climbed onto the tail tank of his sprint car, turned to the crowd and provided a few fist pumps, a wave of the checkered flag and a smile before exhaling a sigh of relief.

Gravel defended the hypothetical home turf on Monday evening at Huset's Speedway, guiding a car owned by Tod Quiring into Victory Lane at a track that Quiring purchased last year to open one of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series' marquee events. Gravel's sixth World of Outlaws victory of the season kicked off the opening night of the inaugural BillionAuto.com Huset's 50, which featured a stout crowd led by South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem.

"We've been really strong here lately," Gravel said. "We have a really, really good team together and I can't complain. I'm in a really good position right now."

The $30,000-to-win event finale and Round 3 of THE SHOWDOWN is Tuesday at Huset's Speedway. The pits open at 2 p.m. and the main gates at 4 p.m. Hot laps start at 7 p.m.

Gravel bested a field of 43 drivers - the second-biggest car count of the season for the World of Outlaws - to claim Monday's top prize. However, Donny Schatz, who captured his 300th career series triumph last weekend, stole the show early as he powered into the lead on the bottom in turn four during the opening circuit of the 35-lap main event.

Traffic appeared on Lap 8 and Gravel pounced two laps later when Schatz was slowed on the bottom in turn four while trying to lap another driver. It provided the opening Gravel needed as he hustled to the high side and into the top spot on Lap 10.

"Luckily I got Donny back there," he said. "He was able to snooker me on Lap 1. Luckily I was able to get him back and that's what won the race. I went to the top because I knew that'd be the fastest lane."

A caution on Lap 11 gave Gravel a clear track for the restart, which had to be attempted twice after a crash brought out the yellow flag during the initial restart. The remainder of the race went without incident with Gravel holding off Schatz.

The track began to take rubber during the second half and traffic played a role in the final laps. Gravel had built more than a two-second advantage, but Schatz closed to approximately a half a second with eight laps remaining. Three laps later he nearly pulled side by side with Gravel in turn four. That was the closest Schatz would get as Gravel maintained the top spot en route to a victory by 0.297 of a second.

"I conserved my tire quite a bit," Gravel said. "I got really tight when the rubber came in. I was watching Donny on the DIRTVision screen. I saw he was really close to me in (turns) one and two. Donny is one of the best rubber racers out there. I just tried to make the right moves and just get to the finish."

Schatz settled for the runner-up result, which was his 19th top five of the season during World of Outlaws competition.

"I didn't go in the right spot," he said while describing the moment Gravel took the lead. "I thought the No. 19 was going to miss the bottom. That's the way it goes. Dave got back by us. I think we had something for him at least. That's positive."

Kerry Madsen rounded out the podium.

"What a fun car to drive," he said. "We really had a fast race car. It was good to go P3."

World of Outlaws points leader Brad Sweet finished fourth and NASCAR star Kyle Larson rounded out the top five.

Madsen and Schatz set quick time during qualifying in their groups. Madsen, Gravel, Schatz and Aaron Reutzel were the heat race winners. James McFadden won the Last Chance Showdown and he was the Hard Charger Award winner in the main event after maneuvering from 21st to 12th.

Mike Melair Scores First PASS Win

In the first 10 races of Mike Melair’s first full season of PA Sprint Series competition, there had been steady improvement but not a whole lot to show for it, with a 13th at Selinsgrove two weeks ago the high point.

But that didn’t mean that Melair didn’t know what to do after drawing the pole position for Saturday’s Virginia Sprint Series-Laurel Highlands Sprint Series-PASS feature at Hagerstown Speedway. The Warrington, Pa., driver mashed the pedal, brushed off a challenge from Mikell McGee, and raced to his first career victory in the 25-lap race.

Actually, the Glen Del Labradors #54 will get credit for multiple wins, because the interregional race will count for all three participating IMCA/RaceSaver series.

McGee was nearly a quarter of a lap back at the end, despite being able to narrow the gap a couple of times in traffic. Domenic Melair, the winner’s brother, came from 12th starting position to finish a strong third, slipping past veteran Ryan Lynn just before the race’s end. 2020 IMCA RaceSaver National Champion and PASS Champion Garrett Bard was fifth.

Completing the top 10 were hometown racer Dylan Shatzer, 2019 IMCA/RaceSaver Champ Ken Duke Jr., 2019 national runner-up Scott Lutz, Devin Brenneman and Jason Roush.

The race was slowed once on the original start when a multi-car tangle in turn four eliminated the cars of Steven Kenawell Jr. and Scott Frack. Melair got a solid jump on the restart and fought off an early challenge from McGee. Even in heavy traffic over the last quarter of the race, he held his lead.

With the long stretch of green-flag racing there was much passing for position throughout the race, and Scott Lutz ended as the hard charger, improving his position from 18th at the start to 8th at the finish. Dom Melair moved up nine spots to third, and Duke, Reed and Young each gained eight positions.

Heat races for the 30 IMCA/RaceSaver sprints on hand went to Mike Melair, Shatzer and McGee, with Austin Reed taking the B-Main. The most serious incident of the night took place in the first heat when Rowdy Heffner nearly flipped out of the track after contact with Mike Leraas. Heffner walked away from the crash, but his car was finished.

Next weekend the PASS sprinters return to Path Valley Speedway’s quarter-mile bullring for a program also featuring the wingless Super Sportsman cars, 270 and 600 micro sprints, 4-cylinder thunder cars and 4-cylinder strictly stocks. This will be the first of two consecutive weekends PASS will compete at Path Valley.

Kofoid Wins Thriller at Fayette Co. & McIntosh Crowned SPEEDweek Champion
Brownstown, IL. (06/20/2021) Michael “Buddy” Kofoid earned his seventh win on the 2021 season, and 14th career Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League victory on the final night of 2021 Illinois SPEEDweek at Fayette County Speedway in Brownstown, IL. Cannon McIntosh alongside his Dave Mac Motorsports crew got crowned the Illinois SPEEDweek champion to end the ninth annual Illinois SPEEDweek.

The 24-car field set up for 30-laps around the fast Fayette County Speedway, with Brent Crews and Bryant Wiedeman lined up the front row. At the drop of the green flag cars scattered and chose their best line to run. The young gun, Crews led the field around the top side as cars battled for position behind him. The field fought a bunch of cautions which resulted in a few restarts for the field.

Kofoid conquered the tough track and took the lead from Crews after a restart on lap 6. Kofoid, Crews, and Cannon McIntosh separated themselves from the rest of the field after a long green flag run. Even in lapped traffic, Kofoid couldn’t be stopped, he picked up the win for the final night of Illinois SPEEDweek. Brent Crews followed along in second and McIntosh rounded out the podium.

McIntosh ended Illinois SPEEDweek on a high note as well, as he got crowned SPEEDweek champion. McIntosh had one win, and a solid set of podium finishes for the week.

THE SHOWDOWN Starts With Austin McCarl, Yeigh and Slendy Reaching Victory Lane During Royal River Casino Night at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 20, 2021) - Austin McCarl kicked off THE SHOWDOWN in style on Sunday evening by dominating the $7,000-to-win Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig main event during Royal River Casino Night at Huset's Speedway.

Additionally, Cory Yeigh was the Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks winner for the third straight week and Micah Slendy recorded his first career Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series triumph at the track.

McCarl led the distance of the Chuck Zitterich Tribute, which went 29 laps without a stoppage before the lone caution set up a green-white-checkered finish. That didn't hamper McCarl, who built a 2.292 second lead in the final two laps en route to his fourth feature victory at the track this season.

"Hats off to the guys on the race track," he said. "I was able to drive across and slide guys in (turns) three and four. I think in traffic you could move around pretty well. I'm looking forward to the rest of the week.

"The real show starts tomorrow and Tuesday and the rest of the week, a lot of big hitters coming in tomorrow."

McCarl gained confidence on Sunday for the remainder of THE SHOWDOWN, which features the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series at Huset's Speedway on Monday and Tuesday for the inaugural Huset's 50 presented by BillionAuto.com.

Dominic Scelzi was the only driver to stay within striking distance of McCarl on Sunday night, but he spun his tires on the late-race restart.

"Bridesmaid again," he quipped in Victory lane. "I think that's three times here.

"I was really good there in the feature. I didn't navigate lapped cars as good as the No. 17a car. He was on the offense the whole time. There were times I couldn't get by guys like I needed to."

D.J. Netto earned a third-place result.

"I struggled through lapped traffic," he said. "I think we have a good balance with our race car. We just have to stay doing what we're doing and I have to do a better job in traffic."

Justin Henderson scored a fourth-place finish and points leader Carson McCarl rallied from 11th to fifth.

Dusty Zomer set quick time during qualifying before Matt Juhl, Austin McCarl and Henderson won heat races.

Yeigh rallied from 10th to post his fourth Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks triumph of the season during a wild 20-lap feature.

"I know some of you are sick of seeing me up here, but this is a lot of years in the making," he said during a Victory Lane interview. "Everything is just working."

Ron Howe led Lap 1 with Jeff Wittrock leading the ensuing two laps. Dan Jensen took the top spot on Lap 4 before Matt Steuerwald led Lap 6. Yeigh was the fifth-and-final leader as he claimed first place on Lap 9 and built a victory by 4.506 seconds to add to his lead in the championship standings.

Colby Klaassen was the runner up after starting 12th with Jensen placing third, Steuerwald fourth and Zach Olivier fifth.

Billy Prouty and Yeigh garnered heat race victories.

Slendy led the final 16 laps of the 20-lap Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series A Main to capture his first-ever win at the oval.

"I grew up here as a kid and all I ever wanted to do was win a race here," he said. "This is a big deal."

Bayley Ballenger led the opening circuit before Taylor Ryan took command on Lap 2. Slendy capitalized on a restart on Lap 5 following the first of four cautions by powering into the lead. He survived three additional restarts before pulling away to a 3.035-second margin of victory. Slendy became the sixth different division winner in seven races this season.

Elliot Amdahl earned a runner-up result with John Lambertz rounding out the podium. Points leader Dusty Ballenger maneuvered from 11th to fourth and Mike Moore charged from 12th to fifth.

Jared Jansen, Lambertz and Slendy each won a heat race.

Mike Melair Dominates for First Win
Nobody watching Mike Melair would ever have known this would be his first win in a IMCA RaceSaver Sprinters after he drove to a dominating heat win then went on to a popular feature win. Heats were up first for the thirty sprinters that made the event on a cloud free clear summer evening with Mike Melair, Dylan Shatzer and Mikell McGee taking wins before the B Main was up with Austin Reed taking that. Mike Melair and Jason Roush pacing the field to green with Melair out front up top and Mikell McGee falling in behind before a car got a little too sideways causing a few cars to get together. Back to green and Melair was off again followed by McGee and soon Ryan Lynn was chasing them down in third. Lap after lap Melair just stayed smooth never putting a wheel wrong even as traffic came up just a great line every lap. Brother Domenic was coming up through the field and was soon on Lynn for third and was using the brother’s high line to do it. With laps winding down Melair and McGee were still staying right with each other as Domenic Melair went high around Lynn for third, but time ran out to climb farther as Mike Melair flashed under his first waving checkered flag. At the line it was Mike Melair, Mikell McGee, Domenic Melair, Ryan Lynn, Garrett Bard, Dylan Shatzer, Ken Duke, Scott Lutz, Devin Brenneman, Jason Roush, Austin Reed, Donny Hendershot, Drew Young, Michael Alleman, Mike Leraas, Josh Spicer, Erin Statler, Brad Mellott, Jarrett Cavalet, Will Brunson, Ron Aurand, Bill Rice, Steve Kenawell jr. and Scott Frack. Non-trasfers Berry Vance, Chris Ware, Matt Mullins, Kury Knepper, Reed Thompson and Roedy Heffner.The VSS takes off next week before heading back to Langley Speedway on Saturday July 3rd for the annual Fourth of July race.

Fresh Off Indiana Midget Week, 16-Year-Old Gets the Job Done at Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series Summer Nationals at KSP
Kennedale TX (06/20/21) by DarinShort.com. On a warm First-Day-of-Summer-eve, 16-year-old Chase Randall would pick up his first-ever Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series victory after several close calls in past Series events. This all took place at KENNEDALE SPEEDWAY PARK’s Summer Nationals in Kennedale, Texas on Saturday night June 19th.
Track dirt guru, Bo Rawdon, would spend days in advance prepping the racing surface due to the early season heat wave. And all that hard work paid off, as by the time the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series would fire up for the 25-lap feature event, the track was wide open, allowing for faster cars to advance their position – which is exactly what sprint car racing fans want to see.
And they would not be disappointed.
When the green flag dropped, Chase Randall would vault into to the lead, and would maintain about a 15-car length lead over 3rd place starter Michael Day and 6th place starter Casey Burkham.
The lead pack would encounter dense lapped traffic from lap 6 all the way until the end of the event – as it would go G, W, C: 25 laps non-stop.
The trio would throw huge haymakers across the wide expanses of KSP’s corners while they continued to place other drivers a lap down.
The groove was on the extreme high side (or as I say, ‘Ridin’ the Rail at Kennedale’), with the cushion built up literally a tire’s width wide about all the way around…and yet every driver was able to negotiate the tricky surface while racing was 2- and 3-wide all over the track the duration of the event.
And when the checkers fell, it was Chase Randall taking it first, with Michael Day 10 car lengths behind with Casey Burkham in tow. Randall would lap up to 8th place.
The massive and jubilant KSP crowd was thrilled to witness Chase take his first career ‘Bandits win – and they all knew that this notch in his belt is certain to be one of many more to come in this young racer’s career.
Thank you to the tireless efforts of the KSP crew for making the hot night and early starting times result in seemingly no effect on the dirt racing surface.
Great job to the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series staff as well, John Merrell, Will Eggimann, McKala Ridenour, Dawn Norris Davis and Joshua Gross! You are all as dedicated as it gets and your positive attitudes spread on to others!
Even with a total car count exceeding 100 in the pit area, the ‘Bandits feature concluded prior to 9:45pm.
The entire sprint car racing portion of the event was caution-free all night.
Thank you once again to the super-charged, and appreciative fans of KSP. They gave the ‘Bandits teams a roaring, waving send-off during their 4-wide parade lap.
The Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series returns to Kennedale Speedway Park on Saturday, September 25th.

Tommy Wickham Uses Last Lap Pass to Win Lucas Oil ESS Evans Mills Thriller.

EVANS MILLS, NY – Tommy Wickham did what many say was the impossible. On lap 24 of the 25 lap Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS), Kevin Ward Jr. Memorial Asphalt Spectacular A-Main, he took his winged sprint car to the outside of race long leader Jeff Cook in turns three and four and on to victory in front of a vocal standing room only crowd.

With smoke pouring off his right rear tire, the move on an asphalt surface that most veterans would say never works, did. The Constantia, NY driver took home $4,350 for his efforts and his wing dance was greeted with a loud roar on a beautiful night in Upstate, New York.

“I kind of knew after my heat that it could work,” Wickham said on his winning move, “I was going to do it no matter what. I was either going to win or probably be somewhere else!”

Jeff Cook led all laps from his pole starting position up until a lap 11 red flag. On the ensuing double file restart, Wickham who started on the outside took the lead going into the first turn. However, the yellow lights came on for two cars that got together which then made for a single file restart.

“I got a good run on that restart so I knew I could go to the outside like I did in my heat. I didn’t know if they thought I jumped or not, but the yellow came out (afterwards Wickham knew his start was good),” he went on, “But the single file start really didn’t bother me cause I knew I was going to wait to the end and then make the move. It worked!”

Wickham then went on to talk about importance of the win, “This means a lot, to win the race for Kevin and having his family here. I’m not sure where it sits in my career as we all buy sprint cars to race on dirt, but it definitely will be one to remember,” then Wickham summed it in one quick quote, “It’s definitely the most money I’ve won!”

For Cook who is the hometown favorite he summed up the result in one quick sentence in victory lane, “I hope you fans enjoyed that race because I didn’t!” Jeff of course on one side was joking but then the other side of that quote he was serious. But, the ESS veteran was a matter of fact and gave Wickham all the credit.

“You really can’t be that upset, I mean, that move, no way would I thought he could do that. Not after 24 laps on our tires,” he continued, “I really don’t know what I can do different. I had a good car, running a good pace. Even after he passed me on that restart, before the yellow came out I just said to myself that I will wait in second and wait for his tire to give out.

“We were close and one day we will get this race, but you have to hand it to Tommy. He made a move that you would think would never work and it did,” Cook went on, “We wanted to win, but it’s about the entire night, thanks to all the fans that are here for a really important race and that’s what it’s all about.”

Kelly Hebing came with guns loaded and looked to have the car to beat during the night, even after redrawing fourth she was still looking at the $4,000 top prize. “The redraw didn’t bother me too much because my car was so good. I knew I could go to the outside and pass, but the front wing damage in that accident hurt me, I couldn’t really charge after that,” the lady known as Lil Cobra went on, “I’m close, one of these years I’ll stand on my wing in victory lane!”

Rounding out the top five were asphalt sprint car rookie Danny Varin and Matt Tanner. The next five was made up of 2015 race winner Parker Evans, Nick Fratto, Dylan Swiernik, New Jersey’s Zack Burd and Denny Peebles.

Heat wins were taken by Hebing and Swiernik.

Karnitz, Schmidt, Scholten, Koenig bag
PDTR A-main triumphs

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 19, 2021– Three drivers took their first trip to Kunes RV victory lane of the 2021 season, while a three-time and defending track champion returned to the winner’s circle for the second straight week, as Plymouth Dirt Track Racing staged its eighth consecutive program of the 2021 campaign at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, June 19.

After a two-year absence, Kevin Karnitz of West Bend returned to victory lane in the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty 360 Sprint Car main event.

Following a string of early-season struggles, three-time and defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland continued to recapture his title-winning form by notching his second consecutive25-lap Sheboygan’s Country B93.7 Late Model main event victory of 2021.

22-year veteran Luke Scholten of Oostburg snapped a two-year winless drought by claiming the 25-lap Oostburg Automotive Grand National A-main, while Beaver Dam’s Elijah Koenig made a rare PDTR appearance count by storming to victory in the time-shortened, incident-plagued 21-lap Cellcom B Mod A main.

In the 25-lap 360 Sprint Car A main, a red flag and caution flag flew before the first lap of the race was completed. The red flag appeared on the initial start when Nick Daywalt of Hubertus flipped exiting turn two on the opening lap.

On the ensuing start attempt, 2018 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Justin Miller of Plymouth got sideways while running second in turn four and collected two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh. McMullen retired from the race with heavy front-end damage, while Miller was able to continue.

When the race finally got underway, Kevin Karnitz bolted into the lead from the pole position with Justin Miller, who started second, falling into second in the running order.

By lap 6, Karnitz had built up a full straightaway lead over Miller. Three laps later Karnitz encountered heavy lapped traffic. However, Karnitz dispatched the slower cars in quick order to maintain a solid cushion over the field.

On lap 20, Tyler Tischendorf of Waupaca and Scott Conger of Eagle collided in turn four, which also collected Justin Miller and 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt, who started sixth and was running fifth. Schmidt was able to continue after going to the work area, while Miller was done for the night.

Following the single-file restart, Karnitz was firmly in control as he pulled away from seventh starter Will Gerrits of Waupun, who was running second.

Karnitz went on to notch his fifth career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory and seventh Midwest Sprint Car Association main event triumph, while notching his first victory at Plymouth since June 1, 2019.

Gerrits finished second, 16th starter Travis Arenz of Sheboygan Falls charged up to finish third, 13th starter Brandon Berth of Cascade placed fourth and Tyler Brabant of Waupun, who started third, rounded out the top five.

Outside front row starter Charlie Schmidt of Cedar Grove jumped into the lead on the drop of the green field of the 25-lap Late Model A main with fourth starter Joe Bongiorno of Milwaukee following in second and four-time PDTR Late Model champion Brad Mueller of Random Lake, who started sixth, moving into third in his second appearance of the 2021 season with PDTR.

As Schmidt paced the field, the lone caution of the event appeared on lap 9 when Justin Ritchie of New London stopped in turn four on lap 9. On the restart, Mueller used the preferred outside groove to power around Bongiorno into second.

On lap 12, Mueller moved in to pressure Schmidt for the lead along the fast and often treacherous cushion. While Schmidt held Mueller at bay, 2016 PDTR Late Model champion Tim Buhler of Greenbush ducked low to briefly take third after starting fifth on lap 19.

One lap later, third starter Justin Schmidt following suit along in the inside line to duck under Buhler to secure third on lap 20 and second in lap 21. On lap 22, Justin Schmidt surged past Charlie Schmidt into the lead in turn one with Mueller in tow as the leader worked through slower traffic.

Justin Schmidt held on over the final three laps to wrap up his 15th career PDTR Late Model A-main victory. Mueller placed second, Charlie Schmidt finished third, Buhler wound up fourth and Bongiorno rounded out the top five.

Luke Scholten started the accident-marred 25-lap Grand National A main from the pole and quickly took over the top spot on the opening lap with second starter Dick Hed of Plymouth following in second.

The first of four caution flags appeared on lap 3 for a two-car incident in turn four. On the restart, Dustin Weiss of Iron Ridge, who started fourth, worked the outside groove to challenge Hed for second.

The second caution flag appeared on lap 6 when Steven Weber of Plymouth spun on lap 6. Dustin Weiss followed off a nifty high move on the restart to secure second on lap 7.

The third caution was displayed on lap 9 for a four-car incident in turn four. On the restart, Hed and Weiss continued to mount an epic duel for the runner-up spot. The fourth and final caution came out for a single-car spin on lap 12.

Weiss bolted around Hed on the restart before moving in to pressure Scholten for the lead. However, Scholten proved to be too strong as he fended off Weiss’ advances to notch his 14th career PDTR Grand National A-main victory to move into second on the all-time PDTR Grand National A-main victory list. It was Scholten first PDTR Grand National A-main win since July 29, 2019.

Weiss placed second, Nick Schumacher of Eagle placed third after starting 10th, two-time PDTR Grand National champion Don Sorce Jr. of West Allis finished fourth after starting ninth and fifth starter Donny Kulow of Elkhart Lake finished fifth.

Justin Bauer of Sheboygan Falls jumped into the lead on the drop of the green flag of the time shortened 21-lap B Mod A main from the pole.

The first of six caution flags appeared on lap four when Nick Schultz of Beaver Dam spun in turn four. Following the restart, fifth starter Elijah Koenig of Beaver Dam charged up to challenge Bauer for the top spot.

On lap 9, Koenig surged past Bauer and into the lead along the high groove. By lap 12, Koenig had already built up a full straightaway cushion over Bauer.

The final 13 laps of the race featured Koenig pulling away from the field in between stoppages in the racing action for four additional caution flags.

Koenig held a healthy lead over Bauer when the sixth and final caution flag was displayed on lap 22 to bring the race to an early end due to the time limit. Koenig earned his second career PDTR B Mod A-main victory, while Bauer placed second, 10th starter Spencer Long of Sheboygan Falls finished third, Mark Hoeppner of Rubicon, who started second, placed fourth and fourth starter Rick Kretschmann of Sheboygan Falls rounded out the top five.

Bill Taylor of Boltonville won the first 15-lap 360 Sprint Car B main.

The eighth PDTR program of the 2021 season, which was sponsored by Frank Motorsports Professional Services, drew 81 total cars, including 29 360 Sprint Cars, 20 B Mods, 15 Late Models and 17 Grand Nationals.

PDTR action is scheduled to resume on Friday, June 25 with the final edition of the Russ Scheffler Tribute Race honoring the winningest driver in PDTR history.

MCCUNE SURVIVES LONG NIGHT FOR MSR M-40 TRIUMPH

June 19, 2021 – Two rainstorms and a complete power outage couldn’t stop Jimmy McCune from capturing the Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro feature event Saturday night at M-40 Speedway in Jones, Michigan. It was McCune’s second MSR feature victory of the season.

A complete power outage at the track earlier in the night would set the tone for a long evening.

Joe Liguori captured quick time to start the night off with a lap of 11.035 seconds around the 3/8-mile, semi-banked speedway. Liguori was unable to break the existing track record of 10.34 seconds currently held by Jeff Bloom.

Just as the first heat race was on the track, a rainstorm hit the area and dampened the speedway. Track officials dried the track and were ready for racing action before a second rainstorm swept through the area. At that point, MSR officials elected to cancel the heat races and Engine Pro Fast Car Dash to get the feature event completed.

As cars were being pushed off for the 30-lap feature, fast qualifier Liguori’s machine was unable to fire. Liguori was forced to retire to the pits and the starting line-up was slightly shuffled.

When the green flag dropped, Tom Jewell got the jump on Teddy Alberts and led the opening seven circuits with Jimmy McCune in tow. McCune had quickly worked himself into the runner-up spot from his fifth starting position. McCune would assume command of the event on lap eight.

The first caution of the race waved on lap eleven when Jacob Dolinar spun in turn three. This would create a double-file restart. On the restart McCune assumed command of the event once again. But going down the backstretch while batting for third position, Jewell and Jason Blonde were racing side-by-side. The two made contact as Blonde momentarily ran out of room. Jewell’s car made contact with the outside retaining wall in all the confusion, ending his night.

McCune would lead the rest of the way to seal the win over Charlie Schultz, Blonde, Jeff Bloom and Dolinar. McCune’s win would make him the first repeat winner of the season and snapped the streak of four different feature winners to start the 2021 season.

Finish:

1. Jimmy McCune (88) 2. Charlie Schultz (9s) 3. Jason Blonde (99) 4. Jeff Bloom (26) 5. Jacob Dolinar (48) 6. Dylan Watson (12) 7. Rick Holley (85) 8. Teddy Alberts (44) 9. Todd McQuillen (2) 10. Joshua Sexton (90) 11. Joe Speakman (72) 12. A.J. Lesieski (18) 13. Tom Jewell (7) DNS Joe Liguori (13) DNS Anthony McCune DNS Adam Biltz (8a) DNS Junior Gould (63)

 

 

Buddy Kofoid Ends Night No.4 of Illinois SPEEDweek on Top

Macon, IL. (06/19/2021) The Mighty Macon Speedway in Macon, IL. hosted the fourth night of Illinois SPEEDweek and Lucas Oil POWRi’s 41st event at the historic track. Michael “Buddy” Kofoid perfected the tough track and ended his night in victory lane, capturing the win from the eighth starting position.

At the drop of the green flag, Kaylee Bryson, Thomas Meseraull, and Cannon McIntosh battled three wide for the lead. All cars fighting for track position on the tricky Macon surface. Daison Pursley caught a rut in 1&2 and got upside down. The field got back under green with Meseraull leading, but about six laps in McIntosh battled Meseraull for the lead and took it over.

McIntosh settled in with the lead while Kofoid was on the prowl. Kofoid made his way up to the second position with only nine laps in the books. After a few late restarts, the battle for the lead intensified, Kofoid and McIntosh traded slide jobs for the lead. Kofoid prevailed and took the lead after a restart to finish off the fourth night of Illinois POWRi SPEEDweek.

Cannon McIntosh followed Kofoid to the line to finish second, Kaylee Bryson finished third, Gavan Boschele finished fourth and Bryant Wiedeman finished in the fifth position. The Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League will be back in action for the final night of the Illinois SPEEDweek at Brownstown, IL. tomorrow, 6/20.

Youngquist Wins Sportsman Sprint Showdown

6/29/21

Alger, WA – Saturday night saw the biggest race of the year for the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints go to Justin Youngquist, who led all 30 laps of the R&H Mechanical Sportsman Sprint Showdown at Skagit Speedway. Capping a fun night of racing ahead of next week’s 49th running of the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup, Youngquist was joined in victory lane by Rick Smith and Zach Dalrymple.

The Sportsman Sprints went 30 laps in their A Main with additional purse and prizes on the line, and when the dust settled it was Youngquist leading the whole distance. He was caught and pressured a little in slower traffic by Evan Margeson, but each time Justin had the right move up his sleeve to maintain his lead and take the big win. Margeson’s first night subbing for the injured Kelsey Carpenter went well, as he finished second and set quick time. Eric Turner won a heat race and ran third. Bill Rude won the other heat and Jesson Jacobson won the dash.

Rick Smith and Craig Moore must have felt like they were joined at the hip all night in the Skagit Aggregates Modifieds. Both drivers won their heats and then ran 1-2 in the main event, with Smith getting his second win in a row and of the year, while Moore ran second at about 2-3 car lengths back from Rick all race long. Adam Holtrop ran third.

Zach Dalrymple won his first feature of the year at Skagit Speedway in the Outlaw Tuners, leading all 17 lap of the main. Colin Sims and Max Sanford rounded out the podium after a spirited battle for position. Sims was a heat race winner along with Mike Macpherson.

Kinzer Cox Wins June 18th ISCS Feature; Young And Ellertson Also Earn Victories
By Stephanie Deatherage
Cottage Grove, Oregon- The first of two straight nights of action at Cottage Grove Speedway kicked off on Friday, June 18th.
Three divisions were on the card, including one Speedway Motors IMCA Weekly Racing program class. They included the return of the Interstate Sprint Car Series, IMCA Modifieds, and Senior Sprints.

Shane Forte of Junction City was the early leader of the Interstate Sprint Car Series main event. However, Forte would be locked in a fierce battle with Cottage Grove’s Kinzer Cox. The two would be neck and neck at the line for several circuits.

There were some occasions in which Forte created space from the rest of the field, but two stoppages kept the pack all tightly knit.
Shortly after a restart, on lap twelve, Cox made a bonsai move to capture the lead. In the Brian Crockett owned entry, Kinzer had to deal with one additional restart but managed to master it.

Kinzer Cox scored his second straight win at Cottage Grove Speedway in 2021 but is his first in ISCS competition. It is his second triumph with series but the first time since June of 2018 that he has tamed the field.

Medford’s Camden Robustelli, in the T.J. Winningham car, was the runner-up, with Shane Forte ending the race third. The rest of the top five was made up of Dave Hibbard, from Medford, and Roseburg native Kyle Alberding.

For the IMCA Modifieds, Paul Rea pounced to the lead on the opening start. The Eugene veteran of Rea inhabited the position until lap three, when Derick Young made his way into first place. Young, from the Eastern Oregon town of Hines, received some pressure just after the halfway mark.

Jeffrey Hudson, racing for car owner Don Roemer, got around Derick Young on lap fourteen. Young kept his composure and retrieved the coveted top spot on the sixteenth circuit.
Derick remained there, the balance of the distance to earn the victory.

It is Derick Young’s first win at Cottage Grove since April 27th, 2019. He is the sixth winner in nine shows and the newest name on the win chart in KMJ Performance Oregon State and Shaw Race Cars Western Region competition.

Cottage Grove’s Curtis Towns and Aaron Sheelar, from Springfield, were second and third. Bricen James of Albany got fourth, followed by Albany native Matthew Drager behind him, in fifth.

The Senior Sprints had their second race of the current campaign. Just like in round one, Nate Ellertson would lead every single lap in the main. The Cottage Grove driver is a perfect two for two in Senior Sprint action. Richie Brown, now residing in Redmond and driving for Shane Forte, was second.

Cottage Grove Speedway returns to racing on Saturday, June 19th, for Dad’s Night Out. All dads get into the races for FREE. Classes in the competition include the Wingless Sprint Series, IMCA Modifieds, Royalty Core IMCA Northern Sport Mods, and IMCA Sport Compacts.

Wilmot Raceway

(Wilmot, Wis., Friday, June 18, 2021)--It was a night of repeaters for Wilmot Raceway's Friday, June 18 Family Night.
Leading the list is dominating Chris Carlson of Caledonia who captured his seventh 20-lap modified feature win of the season as he has taken every Wilmot main event in that division in 2021. It took a while for Carlson to get the front spot, taking the lead using an outside pass in turn two getting around early pacesetter Steve Mueller of Eagle five laps from the finish. Mueller ended up second. Genoa City's Nick Simons third. Genoa City's Mike Simons fourth and Milwaukee's David Wirth fifth.
"Steve is tough on the bottom and sticks to it," said Carlson. "It took me a while to figure the tricky track out, but decided to go for the high side. I have to thank my crew which completely took the car apart after last week because there was a vibration and it just wasn't running right. It's a nice early Father's Day gift for me with the win."
A wild 20-lap Autometer-Brewington Electric Wisconsin Wingless Sprints feature saw a caution period plus two red flag incidents for flips. None of the drivers involved were injured.
Oconomowoc's Ryan Zielski took the lead from early leader Kansasville's Ryan Marshall five laps in following a restart for the caution. Two circuits later the initial red flew when Trevor's Tate Hensley took a wild ride over the turn three berm ending up in the tree bank outside of the push off lane. The final red came at the halfway mark when Nathan Crane of Waukegan, IL flipped in turn one.
Each disruption erased Zielski's advantage keeping the field within striking distance, but he was up to the challenge and pulled away to his second Wilmot win of the year and third in the overall Wisconsin Wingless series. A tight battle for runner-up was decided at the finish with Marshall getting second by inches over third finishing Tim Cox of Park City, IL. Bristol's Natalie Klemko was fourth just ahead of her brother, Chris Klemsko, also from Bristol.
"This is a great team I have to give a lot of credit to," said Zielski, crediting his crew with hours of work getting the car ready. "I knew Ryan was tough and there were a lot of really good drivers coming, so I just stuck to my line."
John Cole of McHenry, IL, reigning Bandit 4-Cylinder Stock Car 2020 champion, scored his second straight 20-lap feature win of the season. Cole sliced through traffic keeping second place Ryan Johnson of Salem in tow, but not close enough to work past Cole. Ernie Herlt of Grayslake, IL was third. Pleasant Prairie's Steve Ellis fourth, Scott Ellis of Lake Villa, IL fifth.
"I have to thank my wife, Danielle, who is here," said Cole, noting his last victory this year she was not at the track. "She and our sponsors give me a lot of support."
Rob Maule of Hebron, IL scored his third 20-lap street stock feature victory of the year. Two laps into the main, Maule worked past Craig Mertes of Antioch, IL for the lead. Two caution periods kept erasing a huge advantage Maule had built, but each time he powered away. At the finish it was Maule, Brandon Mertes was second. New Berlin's Jake Binash third. Courtney Atkinson of Muskego fourth. Big Bend's Mark Baker fifth.
"My family puts up with me spending a lot of time in the garage," said Maule, joined by his wife, two daughters and niece in victory lane. "I think I was dehydrated because I stopped sweating after the heat race. This was a tough one."
Wilmot Raceway's 1/3-mile on the Kenosha County Fairgrounds resumes action Saturday, June 26 featuring the only appearance of the season by the Midwest Sprint Assn. (MSA) winged 360-sprints. Wingless sprints, modifieds and street stocks are also on the card.

Arenz unstoppable in notching
MSA Hagar Nelson Memorial victory

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 18, 2021 – Travis Arenz of Sheboygan Falls continued his recent hot streak as he worked the high groove to perfection to notch his third consecutive and fifth overall A-main victory of the 2021 season in the third annual Akright Auto Parts of Sheboygan Falls Midwest Sprint Car Association 25-lap Dave “Hagar” Nelson Memorial Race at Outagamie Speedway Powered by EWSC Racing in Seymour, Wis. on Friday, June 18.

The 12th MSA racing event of the 2021 season and fifth overall series race at Outagamie Speedway featured a field of 24 cars to honor Dave “Hagar” Nelson, a dedicated supporter of the MSA, who passed away on July 5, 2019.

Outside front row starter Brandon Berth of Cascade outpowered polesitter Tyler Davis of Franklin to take the lead on first turn of the opening lap of the main event. By lap 3, Berth had bolted out to a huge full straightaway lead over Davis on the dry, slick racing surface.

On lap 6, sixth starter Justin Miller of Plymouth worked around Davis to take over the runner-up spot before the leaders began to encounter lapped traffic on lap 8.

On lap 9, Travis Arenz, who started ninth, bolted into third and closed quickly on Miller in dense lapped traffic. Four laps later, Arenz used the extreme outside line to seize second as the low-riding Berth was boxed in behind slower cars running in the inside groove.

Arenz made the winning move to take the lead entering turn one on lap 15 to relegate Berth to second in the running order. By lap 18, Arenz had already built up a commanding full straightaway cushion over Berth when the lone caution flag of the race appeared for a single-car spin in turn two.

Following the restart, it was all Arenz as he pulled away to score his first Hagar Nelson Memorial Race victory and 16th career MSA A-main triumph by a full straightaway margin over Berth, who finished second.

Four-time MSA champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh finished third after starting seventh, Justin Miller placed fourth and 2011 MSA champion Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove placed fifth after starting fifth.

Heat race victories went to Adam Miller of Plymouth, Justin Miller and Brandon McMullen.

The results of the event are unofficial at this time and will be confirmed by the MSA at a later date.

DIFFERENT CAR NO PROBLEM FOR JUSTIN SANDERS AS HE GRABS WIN NO.7 AT OCEAN SPEEDWAY

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (June 19, 2021) – Driving the Larry Antaya Motorsports No.16, Justin Sanders stormed to his seventh victory of the 2021 Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo season on Friday night in Watsonville. The win sets up Sanders with a 52-point advantage in the series before he journeys north for the ASCS National races in Washington next weekend.

“Yeah we were pretty good. The only thing where I think we struggled was off of four,” Sanders said. “You can never count anybody out. Joey (Ancona) was pretty good. He threw some moves at me and it was fun racing with him.”

16-year-old Joey Ancona of Concord led time trials before Easton’s Michael Pombo won the six-lap dash. The 12-lap B-Main was won by Salinas’ Jason Chisum.

Sanders started outside Pombo for the 30-lap feature and immediately took over the lead. He encountered lapped traffic by lap five but earned a reprieve when Nick Ringo of Morgan Hill stopped on the front stretch for a lap seven caution. Ancona tried to slide Sanders in turn three on the restart, but Sanders crossed underneath him to maintain the lead. Sanders again approached slower traffic by lap 12.

The leaders lined up on the high line around the speedway with Ancona diving underneath Sanders to show him a nose on lap 13. Ancona hung in lockstep with Sanders in traffic before he went over the edge in turn four on lap 22. Mitchell Faccinto of Hanford grabbed second as Ancona slowed into turn one. Ancona limped to the pits while on the backstretch, Jason Chisum and J.J. Ringo collided with Chisum flipping for a red flag.

Sanders drove ahead of Faccinto over the final seven laps for the victory while Bud Kaeding made several maneuvers to advance to third at the checkered flag. Castro Valley’s Jake Andreotti was fourth with Pombo rounding out the top-five.

An outstanding 24-car IMCA Sport Modified feature saw Bakersfield’s Tyler Bannister earn the win. Kelly Campanile from San Ramon took the lead on the start, then picked the outside for a lap four restart. Campanile held court through the restart with Bannister in pursuit. The seventh starting Bannister took the lead on the inside on lap six.

A caution flew on lap ten with Cody Bryan spinning in turn two. 15-year-old Andrew Pearce started ninth but charged up to second on the restart. Pearce ran closely behind Bannister the rest of the way. San Jose’s Randy Miller slipped as low as seventh but recovered to finish third at the checkered flag. Campanile ran fourth ahead of Jason Bannister.

Hobby Stocks entertained with a three-wide duel to the checkered flag in their 20-lap event, with the win eventually being awarded to Jerry Skelton of Watsonville. Merced’s Chad Ragsdale led by a nose in a side-by-side battle with Skelton on the first two laps, before Skelton led lap three. Skelton cleared Ragsdale on lap four. Watsonville’s Sam Kennedy had a dangerous spin on the front stretch that brought out the yellow flag on lap five.

Ninth starting TJ Etchinson III entered the picture as he drove into the third spot on the restart. He ran side-by-side with Skelton, eventually being credited with lap ten in the lead. A caution on lap 12 gave Skelton a shot to retake the top position on the outside, leading lap 14. Etchinson drove back to the inside of Skelton to lead lap 15 and the pair remained alongside of each other for the final five laps.

On the final circuit, Joe Gallaher stuck his nose in between them for a three-wide run across the finish line. Etchinson won by mere inches, but the finish was nullified by a post-race disqualification.

Pursley Perfects Jacksonville Speedway for Night 3 of SPEEDweek

Jacksonville, IL. (06/18/2021) Daison Pursley perfects the top side at Jacksonville Speedway to steal victory for night No. 3 of Illinois SPEEDweek. This marks Pursleys third win on the 2021 season, as well as his fourth career Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget victory. Pursley started his night off strong, and ended it by leading the 24-car field to the checkered flag after 30-laps around Jacksonville Speedway

The 30-lap main event lined up with Emerson Axsom on the pole and Pursley to his outside. At the drop of the green, Pursley was off to an early advantage. All 24 cars ran the high side around the track while the field tried to hunt down Pursley. Axsom and Thomas Meseraull battled for the second position right as a yellow came out for cars tangled in 3&4. Axsom and Meseraull got caught in the wreck and ended in the work area.

Racing resumed and Pursley led the pack, teammates Gavan Boschele and Kaylee Bryson followed close behind. As the laps wound down and a couple of cautions bunched the field back up, Pursley still continued to lead the way. Pursley entered into lapped traffic and Kofoid running second, gave it all he had to try and steal the win, but Pursley prevailed.

Kofoid followed him to the line in second, Cannon McIntosh finished in third, Brent Crews in fourth, and Jake Neuman rounded out the top five. The Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League will be back in action tomorrow, June 19th at Macon Speedway for night No. 4 of SPEEDweek

Cannon McIntosh Earns First National Win with Dave Mac Motorsports
Lincoln, IL. (06/17/2021) Cannon McIntosh of Bixby, OK. capitalized on a tough track at Lincoln Speedway and a few cautions to go on and take his family-owned No. 08 to victory lane for the first time on night 2 of the Lucas Oil POWRi National SPEEDweek. Young gun Bryant Wiedeman and Karter Sarff followed him to the checkered flag.

Starting off seventh on the grid, McIntosh went to work and made his way through the pack. Out-front on the field, reigning 2020 Champion, Jake Neuman led the way. Neuman continued to gap himself from the rest of the field, while hard charging Kofoid found himself in the second position. With 14 laps to go, Neuman found himself in lapped traffic, which caused Kofoid to catch up. Kofoid and Neuman both entered into turn one on the bottom, both drivers slide up the track, and ended Neuman’s night.

Kofoid presumed the lead after the yellow, teammate Daison Pursley followed behind in second, and Brent Crews in third. Kofoid and Pursley make contact and both drivers ended their night upside down. Emerson Axsom with the lead going back green, McIntosh in second, and Kaylee Bryson up to third.

All 22 cars are riding around the bottom of Lincoln Speedway with 10 laps to go, but McIntosh is the lone soul who got out of line and ripped the top. McIntosh caught Axsom to take over the lead and went on to lead the field to the checkered and earn his first win on the 2021 season, and first POWRi National win with Dave Mac Motorsports. Bryant Wiedeman followed to finish in second, Karter Sarff finished in third, Emerson Axsom in fourth, and Taylor Reimer rounded out the top five.

“We got all the way to fifth on the bottom and I seen Dalby on the fence telling me “Elbows up.” I don’t know how much more we could have done on the bottom, but the top was really good. I got up there on the restart and stayed committed to it and got around Axsom. We are pretty ecstatic with this win; it’s been a long time coming this year.” Cannon McIntosh

Larson becomes first repeat winner in Ohio Sprint Speedweek with Waynesfield victory

Thursday, June 17, 2021

By Brian Liskai

WAYNESFIELD, Ohio – Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson became the first repeat winner of the 39th Annual Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek Presented by Hercules Tire with a convincing win at Waynesfield Raceway Park on Wednesday, June 16 for the Rick Ferkel Classic. Larson had a terrific battle with Rico Abreu in the middle stages of the race, actually surrendering the lead to the St. Helena, California driver for a couple of laps before regaining the lead and driving to his 26th career FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobile 1 victory.

Larson, who has been on a tear in NASCAR Cup Series competition as of late with three wins to sit second in the top tier point standings, also scored a speedweek win Monday at Wayne County Speedway near Orrville, Ohio. The win at “The Field” is Larson’s 14th career victory in Ohio Speedweek history.

“Really cool to get another win. A huge thanks to all our partners Folkens Brothers Trucking, MAVTV, Durst Tarlton, JVI Group, Finley Farms, Glenn Styres Racing, Macaris…there’s a lot of people that help out Paul (Silva). Rico made me earn that one through traffic. I got a little bit kind of sloppy in my lanes. Just trying to get the moisture. The cushion had fallen off the banking off of two so I really didn’t know where to run and he got by me on the bottom. And I was able to hit it right and slide him in three and four. I felt like the pace even slowed down so much down there I could make just a little more momentum up top. Awesome race track. I love Waynesfield. This is definitely my favorite Ohio track. I think this is my first wing win here…I think I finished second a couple of times with a wing and one without a wing. We’re going to head to Nashville now and try to get a win on Sunday,” said Larson.

Abreu would settle for a second place finish.

“That was fun racing. A fun track and a great crowd. This place…when it gets like that…it’s a lot of fun racing, focusing on car control and mobility in my car. I felt like it was respectful everywhere and I could make up some time on him in three and four when I would hit it right. You had to run that seam and catch the moisture coming off and not get too high up where the track shelved off really bad,” said Abreu beside his Rowdy Energy/Self Made Racing/Lucas Oil/Curb Records/Shop Rick dot com backed machine.

Tyler Courtney battled in the top three all race long and finished out the podium.

“This was my first time here…it’s a pretty fun little race track. I’ve watched a lot of racing here on streaming services but never had chance to race here. We had a really great night and our NOS Energy Drink car was really good. But when you’re racing with two of the best guys to do this it makes it pretty tough. I just kept making the wrong moves at the wrong time but to come home third in the week long thing we had a great night. I wasn’t expecting this place to be that fast…I was caught a little off guard there in hot laps. Then we’re running 10 second laps in qualifying…it kind of caught me off guard. I just learned the track as the night went and got better every time I hit the track,” said Courtney in the ZMAX Lubricants backed #7BC.

In the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invader 360-305 challenge, Jared Horstman, a four time NRA champion, grabbed the lead from Randy Hannagan with just four laps to go and drove to the victory.

“The car really came on there at the end and I found the groove before Randy could. What a great night and I’m so thankful for everyone who helps out on this team,” said Horstman holding his three month old daughter in victory lane beside his M&W Construction, Miller Construction, T&D Interiors, K&L Ready Mix, K3 Dog Spa, Schnipke Brothers Tire, All Purpose Contracting backed machine.

At the drop of the green for the 35-lap All Star feature new track record holder Sam Hafertepe Jr. tipped over and went to the work area. On the second attempt at a start Larson bolted into the lead over Cale Thomas, Abreu, Courtney, Zeb Wise and Bill Balog. Abreu wasted little time moving into second by lap three with Courtney following into third.

Lapped traffic came into play by the eighth circuit but a caution gave Larson a clear track which he used to build a sizeable lead. But Abreu stayed on the bottom groove and slowly ate into Larson’s advantage and dove under him for the lead on lap 16. Larson drove to his outside by Abreu led two more laps before Larson found his groove and drove back by for the lead on lap 18.

Larson maintained about a three car length advantage and at times put two lapped cars between himself and Abreu who had his hands full with Courtney with Bill Balog and Cory Eliason in pursuit. Balog’s run at the front came to an end on lap 28.

Larson got a fantastic restart and drove away for the victory over Abreu, Courtney, Parker Price Miller and Zeb Wise.

Following an opening lap spin, the 25 lap NRA feature went green to checkers. Max Stambaugh grabbed the early lead as Shawn Dancer, Ricky Peterson, Hannagan, Horstman and Tyler Gunn gave chase. Hannagan drove into second on lap three and immediately began to close on Stambaugh. Heavy lapped traffic by the 11 circuit allowed Hannagan to take a peak beneath the leader and eventually take the lead on lap 15.

Horstman worked his way into second on lap 16 and four circuit later drove to the outside of Hannagan for the lead. Horstman went unchallenged the remaining four laps for the win with Hannagan, Stambaugh, Dancer and Harli White rounding out the top five.

Waynesfield Raceway Park will be back in action July 3 for the Jack Hewitt/Bob Hampshire Classic with the FAST 410 winged sprints and Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series non-wing sprints in action.

Axsom Takes Night One of POWRi SPEEDweek

Charleston, IL. (06/16/2021) Emerson Axsom of Franklin, IN. came out of the gate strong for the first night of the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League SPEEDweek at Charleston Speedway. Taking the green flag and leading the 24-car field to the checkered flag, Axsom claimed his first POWRi National victory on the 2021 speedway.

Axsom started off the night strong and claimed victory in the Auto Meter Heat Race No. 3, which started him on the front row for the 30-lap main event. Cannon McIntosh of Bixby, OK. lined up next to him, on the front row. The two took the field to green and never left the top side. On the initial green flag run, Axsom gapped the field, and everyone settled in behind him to battle it out for positions.

A red for Emilio Hoover who got upside down, bunched the field back up with only 4 laps in. Positions two through six battled side-by-side while a few cautions slowed the runs. McIntosh and Axsom found themselves in an intense battle for the lead with a little under 18 laps to go. As McIntosh is battling back and forth, the yellow came out for a flat right rear on McIntosh’s’ car which resulted in going to the work area.

DANNY DIETRICH BECOMES 5TH DIFFERENT "410" SPRINT CAR WINNER IN 5 RACES AT SHARON IN 2021 WITH 1ST CAREER OHIO SPEEDWEEK VICTORY TUESDAY AGAINST THE 53-CAR ALL STAR FIELD; BACK-TO-BACK RUSH SPRINT WINS FOR NOLAN GROVES

By Mike Leone

June 15, 2021 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Hartford, OH)…Sharon Speedway hosted round number four of Cometic Gaskets Ohio Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires on Tuesday night in the second of four appearances by Tony Stewart's FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 during the 92nd anniversary season. Scoring victories and celebrating in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane were Danny Dietrich-All Star Sprints and Nolan Groves-Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars. A large crowd watched as 73 Sprint Cars filled the pits for the two-division program.

Danny Dietrich out-dueled George Hobaugh on the opening lap and fended off All Star points leader Tyler Courtney for his first career Sharon Speedway win as he became the fifth different "410" Sprint Car winner in as many 2021 races. Dietrich earned $6,000 in the 35-lap All Star feature for his first career Ohio Speedweek victory as well.

"You're never owed anything in racing- you just have to keep digging," explained the 33-year-old Gettysburg, Pa. racer, who lost one on the last lap to Cole Duncan on Saturday night at Fremont Speedway. "We've been fast this whole week. Man this feels good. This one is for Derek (Snyder). He's our biggest supporter out here and this is his home track. This is awesome. Our goal was to come to Ohio and get one and compete for the (Speedweek) championship and by golly we're doing! It's always good when the Posse can come to Ohio and get a win whether it's me or someone else."

Dietrich was able to overtake May 15 Sharon winner, Hobaugh, for the early lead. Courtney started in fifth and made his way to third on the opening lap. Courtney ran down Hobaugh and was all over the western Pa. local on lap six, while Ian Madsen closed in making it a three-car battle for second on lap eight. Courtney was finally able to dispose of Hobaugh on lap nine just before Dietrich caught traffic on the 10th circuit; meanwhile, seventh starting Justin Peck passed Madsen for fourth Courtney then reeled in Dietrich, who was dealing with lapped traffic, on lap 11.

Kyle Larson, who won Monday's Ohio Speedweek event at Wayne County Speedway from the 10th starting spot, once again was on the move. Larson started eighth this time and cracked the top five on lap 19 when he dropped Madsen back another spot. After 24 caution-free laps, action slowed for a spin by Cap Henry. When green replaced yellow on lap 25, Larson continued to move forward taking the fourth spot from Hobaugh.

On lap 30, Dietrich once again caught lapped traffic, but then got a break when the event's second and final caution was displayed for a spin by Cole Macedo. That caution setup a five-lap dash to the checkered as Dietrich kept Courtney at bay to become the third new Sharon Speedway "410" winner in 2021 and the 167th all-time winner at the track. Dietrich's 14th career All Star win came in the Gary Kauffman-owned, Sandoe's Fruit Market/Weikert's Livestock/Pace Performance/Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC-sponsored #48.

"Tyler (Courtney) ran second and he's been real good lately," continued Dietrich. "I know it rubbered up, but we were good all night long. It was just when you needed to move down the race track in the feature. It's a technical track even when it rubbered up cause it's so round. It's so easy if you don't get down to miss the rubber and then you were in trouble. I was working real hard on those lapped cars trying not to make a mistake then the yellow came out, they all went away, and Tyler was back on my bumper. I just kept telling myself to hit the bottom and keep it tight on the tractor tires."

Peck, who won the May 1 All Star show for his first career Sharon victory, was third. Larson came home fourth. Hobaugh dropped to fifth. Hunter Schuerenberg was sixth. Cole Duncan raced from 18th to seventh just missing the hard charger. Madsen dropped to eighth. Local A.J. Flick was ninth with Australian Lachlan McHugh completing the top 10 in his first ever appearance. After taking a provisional, Paul McMahan went 25th to 13th to earn the hard charger.

Schuerenberg set fast time overall against the 53-car field with a lap of 15.771. Heat winners were Schuerenberg, Bill Balog, Courtney, Peck, and Hobaugh. Rico Abreu was victorious in the C main, while Cory Eliason won the B main. Hobaugh won his first career dash to earn the pole position, while Dietrich won dash number two to earn the outside pole. The All Stars will return to Sharon on Saturday, July 10 for the "Lou Blaney Memorial" and Sunday, July 11 for Justin Snyder's "Salute to the Troops".

At the last Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Car feature at Sharon on June 5, 17-year-old Nolan Groves charged from the 12th starting spot to win his first career feature. Ten days later, the 2020 Pace Performance RUSH Sprint Car "Futures Cup" Champion led all 20 laps of the feature for another $600 payday. The victory also kept Groves atop the $5,000 to-win Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series points standings for RUSH.

"I didn't know if we were going to get this one," acknowledged the Sugar Grove, Pa. winner. "Off the start, I could tell he (Arnie Kent) was right on me for awhile. I hope we can keep the ball rolling- we have some speed right now. I have to thank all of my great sponsors, the crew, and everyone that helps out during the week."

Grove was able to race into the lead ahead of veterans Arnie Kent, Gale Ruth, Jr., and Chad Ruhlman. Sixth starting Blaze Myers passed Ruhlman for fourth on lap two, but Ruhlman came back to retake the spot one lap later then got past Ruth for third on lap four. That would be as far forward as Ruhlman would get as Ruth reclaimed third on lap six with Myers getting back to fourth on lap seven.

Meanwhile up front, Kent was pressuring Groves. Kent would get under Groves on several occasions off turn four, and the two would be side-by-side down the frontstretch but every lap Groves was able to hold on. On lap 13, Kent actually made the pass going into turn one, but slipped high allowing Groves to get back under the veteran to maintain his lead.

On lap 16, Kent tried another move to take the lead, but it wasn't successful as Myers slipped underneath Kent to steal second. The event's only caution was displayed with 16 laps completed for the #16c of Amelia Clay. Myers, who is also 17, was unable to make a serious challenge over the final four laps as the Paul Beedle-owned, Coyote Performance Products/Tom Abbott Auctioneers/Spray Foam Options/Schuylers Service Center/Speedway Service Center/Kart Works-sponsored #25 took the win by 1.924 seconds.

Myers, who got upside down on Saturday night in his Pro Stock, recorded his career best RUSH Sprint Car finish in second for the former RUSH Sportsman Modified winner. Kent was third over Ruth. John Mollick raced from eighth to fifth. Kevin Ruhlman, who flipped hard at the last show, had a solid run in sixth after starting 14th. Kevin's father Chad dropped to seventh at the finish. Brad Blackshear was eighth over May 22 winner Rod George. Tyler Newhart completed the top 10. Heat winners over the 20-car field were Myers and Chad Ruhlman.

Coming up this Saturday night (June 19) will be a "Steel Valley Thunder" show featuring the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply UMP Modifieds for $1,000 to-win along with the Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and the Whelen Econo Mods. Pits open at 4 p.m. with grandstands at 5. Race time is 7 p.m. General admission is $15. Kids 13 and under are free. Pit passes are $30.

Hauck Outduels Bard At Port Royal

Two young chargers put on an old-fashioned battle at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night before Derek Hauck emerged with the 20-lap feature victory over Garrett Bard at the “Speed Palace.”

The Allenwood racer’s Fultz Auto Body of Lock Haven #33 took the lead for the final time on lap 13, but the battle for the lead only ended when Hauck crossed the state/finish line 1.069 seconds ahead of Bard at the checkered flag.

At the green flag, it was Bard moving up from his third starting position to challenge pole-sitter Devin Adams, with second-starting Hauck lurking behind them. Adams and Bard traded the lead on the first lap before the 2020 PASS and IMCA/RaceSaver National Champion prevailed on lap two. Hauck and Adams then battled for second for four laps before a slowing Mickell McGee brought out the feature’s first caution.

Following he restart, Hauck claimed the runner-up spot before a lap eight caution for a front-stretch incident that left Paul Moyer backwards against the inside wall.

On that restart, Hauck slipped into the lead on the backstretch, only to surrender it to Bard in turn three. But four laps later, Hauck made the move that stuck.

Meanwhile, Dom Melair, driving the Ort Racing #36, was charging from his eighth starting position, taking fourth from Kassidy Kreitz after the lap 12 restart and the slipping past Adams into third.

Behind them, Dave Grube, winner of three straight recent races in three different RaceSaver regional series, was advancing from his 18th starting position. He would get to seventh before time ran out, but it was still enough to earn the York Haven veteran the Penns Valley Meat Market Hard Charger Award.

Mikell McGee picked up the "oh poop, I finished last" award courtesy of Herbie Stoner AKA "the poop guy" supplier of portable facilities at the track. McGee suffered a broken suspension part that sidelined him early.

Garrett Bard picked up the VP Fast Finisher Award with a case of oil courtesy of VP Lubricants.

The finish was Hauck, Bard, Melair, Adams and Kreitz, followed by Christian Rumsey in sixth, then Grube, Jeffrey Weaver, Erin Statler and Roger Irvine.

The top five was among PASS’s younger sets of frontrunners, but veterans Statler and Irvine, each a PASS competitor for more than 15 years, anchored the top 10.

With a stout field of 46 RaceSaver sprints on hand, it took five heat races and two B-Mains to set the field. Dustin Young claimed his first heat win in the first contest, after Doug Dodson lost a wheel while leading. Hauck passed Statler in the final turn to win the second heat, coming from ninth starting position, then Rumsey and Ken Duke Jr. had a stirring duel for second behind runaway winner Kreitz in the third.

Bard won the fourth heat easily, and Nick Sweigart triumphed in a tough battle with Bob Garvey for the final transfer spot. Weaver took the final heat, and Melair edged Jake Waters for second in the final turn.

In all the heats, only three cars failed to finish.

Kruz Kepner won the first B-Main, as McGee and Sweigart battled behind him, the McGee coming out ahead. The second B-Main was perhaps the most intense race of all the prelims, with John Fiore winning in his first PASS appearance of the year, and Dodson coming from eighth to finish second.

Next Saturday PASS joins the Laurel Highlands Sprint Series and Virginia Spring Series for a 20-lapper at Hagerstown Speedway. With a 7:00 p.m. starting time, the program also will include Mid-Atlantic Modifieds, pure stocks and hobby stocks. Grube was the winner of a non-PASS RaceSaver event at Hagerstown last month.

Justyn Cox earns first career Sprint Car Challenge Tour victory at Placerville Speedway Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…Justyn Cox had been knocking on the door of a Sprint Car Challenge Tour victory several times over the last few years and on Saturday night that call was finally answered at Placerville Speedway. The Clarksburg, California racer battled up front all race long and crossed the checkered flag to pick up $4,000 at the 30th Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial.
Cox spent the early stages of the race battling with Kalib Henry, who earlier captured the High Sierra Industries Dash. Hanford’s Michael Faccinto was also right there in the mix and eventually took over second, before coming after Cox for the lead.
The pair proceeded to battle tooth and nail for the top-spot until things got a little too close for comfort in turn three. It resulted in Faccinto getting into a spin and being contacted by Justin Sanders, who had nowhere to go.
After that slowdown Cox hit his marks lap after lap and fended off a late challenge from Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick to claim his initial Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards triumph. By way of winning the main event Cox also became the brand new SCCT point leader heading into next Saturday’s event at Petaluma Speedway.
Carrick came home in second, followed by Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Award winner Ryan Robinson, who carved his way from 17th to third, taking home a prize valued at $500.
We’d also be remiss without mentioning Placerville’s Andy Gregg, who at one point charged from 23rd to fourth, before getting caught in a spin. Rounding out the top-five in the 35-lapper were Auburn’s Andy Forsberg and Templeton’s Kaleb Montgomery. Completing the top-10 were Kalib Henry, Shane Hopkins, Zane Blanchard, Shane Golobic and Justin Bradway.
The evening’s B-main went to Isaiah Vasquez, while heat races were captured by Tanner Carrick, Justyn Cox, Kaleb Montgomery and Michael Faccinto. Justin Sanders earned the $500 overall fast time award by clocking an 11.090 around the quarter-mile.

Blank Wins a Close One as Keeran and Schultz Also Win on Old Timers Night at Double X!

Winged Sprint Cars

Tyler Blank picks up win number four at Double X Speedway in 2021 on “Old Timers Night”. This win was not a walk in the park by any stretch for the 18 year sprint car veteran. With a track that was traction challenged, causing drivers to try multiple lines around the mile home of “Sunday Night Thunder”, Blank spent 20 laps trying to figure out a way to pass race long leader Broc Elliott. Pole starter Broc Elliott jumped into the lead at the drop of the green flag over Corey Nelson and would click off some very impressive laps leading the winged sprint car feature event. Elliott would use both high and low lines to maintain his advantage over the field. Blank would move to second from fourth in a handful of laps and start to challenge Elliott for the lead. A lap 12 caution would set up a challenge to the leader as Blank would pull alongside the #00 machine of Elliott heading into turn three but Elliott would pull off a successful slide job into turn four to continue holding the point. For the next several laps Blank would look for the way around and Elliott would use every line on the track to hold the lead. Coming out of turn four, five laps from the checkered Elliott chose the low groove and Blank used the momentum of the top shelf to take the lead and claim victory number four on the season. In victory lane Blank would climb out of his number 75 sprinter, wave to the crowd and then walk over to the #00 machine to offer congratulations to Elliott for his great run Sunday Night. Following these two leaders under the checkered flag were Samuel Wagner with a strong third place run in the Hockett Racing #73, veteran Randy Martin advanced from 10th to claim fourth and Korey Bales completed the top five. Completing the top ten saw Taylor Walton overcome mechanical issues and race from 13th to 6th, Corey Nelson finished 7th, Jack Wagner crossed the line in 8th, Austin Alumbaugh ninth and Chris Morgan rounded out the top ten. Heat races were captured by Bros Elliott and Corey Nelson.

Austin McCarl, Yeigh and Ostermann Score Seal Pros Night Victories at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 13, 2021) - Austin McCarl and Cory Yeigh both captured their track-leading third triumphs of the season and Javen Ostermann posted his first career win at Huset's Speedway on Sunday during Seal Pros Night.

McCarl led all but the first lap of the 25-lap Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association and Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig main event, maintaining a solid lead throughout traffic and pulling away during a green-white-checkered finish to win by 1.219 seconds.

"I needed this win," he said. "I've been going to California and getting my ass kicked. It's my wife's birthday today and I told her I'd bring her home a trophy.

"These races are won and lost in traffic. You can have a straightaway lead and get stuck behind two guys. You have to catch them in the right spots. A second, a second and a half lead doesn't mean a lot when you get to traffic."

It worked in McCarl's favor on Sunday as he mostly led by at least one second after a spirited opening couple of laps racing with Dover, who narrowly led the first lap. The win was McCarl's second with the NOSA Series this season.

Dover's runner-up result was a career-best outing at Huset's Speedway, where he has posted four top fives - tied for the second most - in seven starts this season.

"I think the last time we did full time 410s was 2007," he said. "It feels good to be in a 410. We're just out here having fun and (earning) good results."

Justin Henderson was the third-place finisher, marking his division-leading fifth top five this year.

"It was a very fast race track," he said. "Jack and Austin were doing a great job. I searched around. I tried the bottom at the end. I wanted to win this for my Seal Pros guys."

Brooke Tatnell finished fourth and NOSA Series points leader Jade Hastings recorded a fifth-place run.

Lynton Jeffrey set quick time during qualifying before Dover, Henderson and Hastings scored heat race wins.

Yeigh garnered his second straight Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks victory thanks to a late-race pass. Yeigh, who started ninth, advanced into fourth place on Lap 7. He remained in that position until gaining two spots on Lap 13. Three laps later he powered into the lead and held on for a 0.649 margin of victory.

"I was going where they weren't," Yeigh said. "Everybody was driving their butts off. It was a lot of hard work. When I was a kid I never dreamed I would be winning races here. It's pretty neat."

Seventh-starting Colby Klaassen finished second with Tim Dann third. Zach Olivier advanced from 10th to fourth and Matt Steuerwald was fifth. Shaun Taylor led the first 15 laps before fading to sixth in the closing laps.

Dan Jensen and Aaron Foote topped the heat races.

Ostermann was smooth throughout the 20-lap Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series main event as he led the distance for his first career win at the track. A caution on Lap 8 occurred just as Ostermann was entering traffic. The final caution of the race came on Lap 12 and Ostermann never faced traffic as he pulled away to a victory by 1.628 seconds.

"We've had a little bit of a rough year so to win the first one at this place is amazing," he said. "Those (cautions) came at the right time. I was going to sit there at the bottom and if I heard somebody coming on the top I'd move up there."

Ostermann never needed to leave the bottom lane as Nathan Weiler and John Lambertz diced it up for the runner-up position several car lengths behind the leader. Weiler won that battle with Lambertz rounding out the podium. Ryan Bickett placed fourth and Shane Fick ended fifth.

Ostermann, Taylor Ryan and Lambertz each won a heat race.

Next up at Huset's Speedway is the start to THE SHOWDOWN, which begins next Sunday with Royal River Casino Night featuring the Chuck Zitterich Tribute for 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.

Ryan Taylor Etches His Name Into The Record Books By Winning The Joe Whitcomb Memorial at Selinsgrove Speedway

Contact: Paul Harkenrider

PST Media

paul@patriotsprinttour.com|607-237-6372

(Selinsgrove, Pa) Notable sprint car driver in the Central Pennsylvania region, Ryan Taylor showed up to Selinsgrove Speedway and secured his first Patriot Sprint Tour win over Derek Locke and Adam Carberry taking home the $2,571 payday.

Taylor started third in the A Main behind Adam Carberry and Davie Franek who would bring the 21-car field to the green. Carberry would go out front in the first three laps, but back-to-back cautions would keep the field intact in the first five laps.

When the field was pacing around the track during the second caution, Davie Franek unexpectedly had to pull into the work area due to a left rear flat. This would put Ryan Taylor in the runner up position with Carberry still leading.

Carberry, the 2020 URC series champion, would bring the field back to green but Ryan Taylor would stalk him going down the back stretch. On lap four, Taylor would utilize the very bottom and run right by Carberry for the race lead.

The battle for second now was becoming highly contested with Carberry holding on but with a very fast Derek Locke doing everything he can to get by the 47 of Carberry. Jason Shultz was also continuing to inch closer towards the leaders of the field but just could not find the lane to make a move to advance forward.

Taylor would lead the final 21 laps to secure the win and score his first Joe Whitcomb Memorial. Derek Locke was able to get by Carberry on lap 24 and finish second. Jason Shultz's efforts would provide him a solid fourth place run with Andy Best completing the top five.

Mark Smith who started 13th was able to charge forward throughout the event coming home sixth. Smith was the highest finishing PST member to cross the line and will receive first place points towards the 2021 points championship. Followed by Jordan Thomas (7th) and Paulie Colagiovanni (8th).

Heat race winners went to Ryan Taylor, Davie Franek and Adam Carberry. Carberry was also the Lil Bobs dash for cash winner that paid $500. The fast timer with a time of 17.560 belonged to Derek Locke.

The Patriots will now have a week off before preparing for another fast half mile, this time at the Fonda Speedway in Fonda, NY. Please be sure to visit patriotsprinttour.com and connect on our social media channels; facebook, twitter, and Instagram.

White picks up 4k at Limaland. Dippman and Sherman grab Thunderstock and UMP Mod victories.

6/11/2021
Lima, OH

by Gerry Keysor

Limaland Motorsports Park swung open the gates under clear skies for the Anheuser Busch Sales of Lima Busch Clash, and the rescheduled Ron Kahle Jr. Memorial for the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders. Lindsay, Oklahoma's Harli White would pick up her 2nd win in 2021 in NRA Sprint Invader competition aboard Ed Neumeister's No. 11N in the $4000 to win Ron KAhle Jr. Memorial Feature. No. 74D Craig Dippman would win the Bud Thunderstock feature, and No. 65 Todd Sherman would bag his 52nd career victory at Limaland in the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds.

Kicking off the night were the Bud Thunderstocks in their 15 lap A Main. No. 7C Jordan Conover and No. 82 Chris Douglas would lead the field to green with Conover grabbing the early race lead over Douglas. Multiple cautions kept the field close until a restart on lap 6 saw contact made between No. 74 Craig Dippman, and Conover. Conover would come to a stop in turns 3 and 4 with a flat left rear tire, bringing out the caution yet again. Conover would get the tire changed in time to rejoin the field from the tail, and would charge thru the field but run out of time as Dippman would grab the win over No. 57 Jeffrey Jessup, Douglas, No 22T Tony Anderson, and Conover.

Next up were the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders for their 25 lap A Main honoring the memory of Ron Kahle Jr. No. 17H Hud Horton, and No 22H Randy Hannagan would make up the front row, with Horton grabbing the early lead. No. 11N Harli White would begin making moves right away, charging to 4th position by lap 2. Hannagan began to close on Horton for the lead on lap 8, and finally made the pass on lap 11. On lap 14, No. 2P Ricky Peterson would begin to challenge Horton for 2nd, which would allow White to close in and grab the 2nd spot on lap 15. Hannagan held a 2.1 second lead and appeared to have the win in the bag, until 5 laps to go, as Harli White began closing rapidly on the leader. White found herself on the tail tank of Hannagan as they crossed under the flag stand on lap 23, with White going as low as she could go in turns 1 and 2, even clipping the infield tires and upsetting the car and losing ground to Hannagan's 22H. White would get the Chalkstix sponsored 11N back underneath her for one final charge, and on the final lap grab the win over Hannagan, Peterson, No. 18 Todd Heuerman, and No. 17 Jared Horstman.

Completing the night were the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds. No. 34x Shane O'Connor, and No. 19B Brandon Ordway would bring the field to green in the 20 lap A Main. O'Connor would grab the early lead with Ordway and No. 22T Tony Anderson battling for 2nd. Ordway would clear Anderson and on lap 3, snatch the lead from O'Connor. By lap 5, Churubusco, Indiana's Todd Sherman had climbed to 3rd from his 8th place starting spot in the Sherman Enterprises, Ferris Commercial Mowers No. 65. The caution flag would wave on lap 6 for UNOH Racer Bryce Nichols spinning in the middle of turns 1 and 2 in the UNOH No. 01. On the restart, O'Connor would wash up the track exiting turn 2, allowing Sherman to squirt by and set his sights on race leader Ordway. Sherman would get by Ordway on lap 10, and never look back, en route to his 52nd career Limaland Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modified victory. Ordway would be 2nd with No. 3W Dylan Woodling 3rd, No. 16 Jeff Koz 4th, and No. 36 Brandon Vaughan would complete the top 5.

Fink fantastic in Mercer big block modified feature; McCandless now three for four in 305 sprints ;Schaffer picks up first FASTRAK mod win of 21; and Thompson is two for two in mini stocks

 By Jim Balentine (Mercer,Pa)

After nearly a month layoff since the last race, Michaels Mercer raceway returned for the end of school showdown on Twin state auto racing club night with Kyle Fink holding off Brad Rapp to win the big block modified feature. Logan McCandless has now won three of four racesaver 305 sprint features this year. 2019 track champion Brian Shaffer picked up his first win of the season in the FASTRAK modified, and Andy Thompson wins his second mini stock point feature race. Mason McAndrew and Kalyn Jackson won in the young gun junior sprints.

Kyle Fink, who started on the pole, held off numerous challenges from Brad Rapp, who both grew up in small block modifieds racing together won his 2nd big block modifed feature at Mercer over Rapp by 0.386 seconds. Eric Gabany who has one win already in 2021 finished 3rd, Chris Haines 4th and Tom Glenn. “I didn’t know he was there but I just kept holding the bottom and if someone was going to get around me it would be the top which would be almost impossible... it’s pretty cool to go from being 10 years old in the stands with a walkie talkie to here in victory lane!”

Logan McCandless from his 4th starting position took the lead from an improving Jarrett Rosencrance on lap 4 and dominated the 15 lap Racesaver 305 sprint feature winning by 3.687 seconds. Rosencrance finished a best ever 2nd; 2nd year driver Tom Jasen crossed the line in 3rd; 2019 champ Jake Gomola was 4th and Steve Cousins 5th. “It doesn’t feel real to be honest! “ Logan said (winning 3 of 4 races this year) “I didn’t know how big my lead was car felt good and I kept racing and it all worked out.”

20 time limited modified winner Steve Young came back out of retirement after a long absence to start on the pole of the FASTRAK feature. 2019 champ Brian Schaffer from the 4th position would challenge the veteran and would pass him for the lead and went on to collect his 6th career feature. Young would hold onto 2nd, Jeff Schaffer Jr. was 3rd, Eric Martin 4th and Eric Gabany 5th. “He (Steve Young) has a lot of laps here.. it was great to race against him... the car is fixed and I made all the laps tonight and it feels great!”

A 12 car redraw for the $400 to win mini stock race put Mike Porterfield and Pete Blaczak on the front row and With one point night in the books and the Mercer rule which is the feature winner from the last feature run can start no better than 12th, put Andy Thompson in the last spot of the redraw. Adam Aley took the lead from the start and Porterfield then broke an axle on lap 2 ending his night meanwhile Thompson moved up to 2nd quickly after several yellows slowed the field. Joe Campbell got around Blaczak for 3rd on the restart and both were chasing Thompson and Aley. All 3 began moving away from the field at halfway. Thompson then went to the inside off of turn 4 to run side by side with Aley and made a clean pass to go around to take the lead. Lapped traffic became involved at the white flag and Aley tired to go low under Thompson around turn 4 but Thompson went to take the exciting win as Carl Ealy squeezed by Aley for 2nd. Aley would finish 3rd, Pete Blaczak 4th and Mike Kelly 5th. Andy said “we just put this car together this week!! I love racing here and I will always come back . We ran a clean race You don’t have to beat and bang to go ahead of somebody.”

Pirtek Renegades

June 12, 2021, New Richmond, WI by: Terry Lenhertz Mother Nature turned the temperature down just a bit on Saturday, but Chase Viebrock kept the heat turned all the way up in his #50 winger on kids’ night at Cedar Lake Speedway. A robust 18 winged sprints checked in the back gate for their seventh event on the winged schedule for the Pirtek Renegades. In qualifying action, Patrick Heikkinen nabbed the checkers in the first heat, and Bob McVitty went flag-to-flag to win heat two.

Viebrock accumulated the most passing points, but Todd Hansen snared the #1 pill in the redraw, with Viebrock to his right hand side. At the drop of the green, Viebrock jumped to cushion and into the lead, but the race was slowed by a caution just one lap in. On the restart, Viebrock again shot out to a big advantage, leaving Hansen, Owen Carlson, Pat Heikkinen and Ryan Buck to battle for second. Another caution just prior to halfway was the only thing that could slow down Viebrock, as he had lapped half the field at that point. Back under green, Viebrock went back to work, while Buck and Hansen engaged in a good high/low battle for position in the top five. At the double checkers it was Viebrock claiming his fourth consecutive win in dominating fashion. Heikkinen was second and Buck matched his career best with a third place finish. Hansen and Trevor Reding rounded out the top five.

In other Renegade action, Brandon Palm scored his first win of the season for the Western Renegades at Devils Lake Speedway in Crary, North Dakota. The Pirtek Renegades return to action this Saturday, June 19, for the sprint car special at Ogilvie Raceway. Both divisions, the traditional and winged sprint cars attack the 3/8ths mile just east of Ogilvie, Minnesota.

 

 

Arenz, Schmidt, Loehr, Lorier score in PDTR A-main action

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 12, 2021 – The seventh Plymouth Dirt Track Racing program of the 2021 season produced plenty of action at the front of the field with three drivers visiting the Kunes RV Winners Circle in A-main action for the first time in 2021 and another earning back-to-back main event victories Saturday, June 12 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

In A-main action, Travis Arenz of Sheboygan stormed to his second consecutive A-main victory of the 2021 campaign in the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty 360 Sprint Car headliner.

Three-time and defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland shook off an uncharacteristically slow start to the season by claiming his first 25-lap Sheboygan’s Country B93.7 Late Model main event victory of 2021.

2018 PDTR Grand National champion Matt Loehr of Dotyville notched is initial triumph of the 2021 season in the 25-lap Oostburg Automotive Grand National A main.

Sheboygan’s Steve Lorier was another 2021 first-time winner in the 25-lap PDTR B Mod A main.

In the 25-lap 360 Sprint Car A main, third starter Will Gerrits of Waupun bolted past polesitter Mike Yurmanovich of Cascade and outside front row starter Justin Erickson of Plymouth to take the lead in turn two of the opening lap.

On lap three, Travis Arenz, who started seventh, used the high groove to power his way into second. One lap later, Arenz swept past Gerrits to take over the top spot and he immediately proceeded to leave the field in his dust.

Starting on lap 11, Arenz found himself negotiating heavy lapped traffic on the dry slick third-mile track surface. As Arenz enjoyed a comfortable half-lap lead, two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion and current point leader Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh, who started eighth, worked his way into the runner-up spot.

As the laps wound down, McMullen was able to close the gap slightly, but it was all Arenz at the front of the field as he cruised to his sixth career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory and second straight main event win at the Plymouth track in the caution-free event.

McMullen had to settle for second, Gerrits wound up third, Erickson placed fourth and 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove charged up to finish fifth after starting 16th.

Polesitter Charlie Schmidt of Cedar Grove grabbed the lead at the drop of the green flag of the 25-lap Late Model A main with 2016 PDTR Late Model champ Tim Buhler of Greenbush in tow.

On lap 3, Justin Schmidt used the cushion to shoot into third in the running order. The first of two caution flags appeared on lap 4 when Donny Singer of Random Lake spun in turn four.

Following the restart, Justin Schmidt used the high line to move around Buhler into second on lap 5 before the second and final caution flag flew on lap 6 for a spin in turn four involving Sawyer Specht of Sheboygan Falls.

When the race resumed, Justin Schmidt continued to stalk the low-riding Charlie Schmidt along the outside groove. On lap 12, Justin Schmidt assumed the lead utilizing the high line in turn four.

After switching to the low line, Justin Schmidt went on to built up a comfortable cushion in the closing laps en route to his 14th career PDTR Late Model A-main victory by a half-lap margin.

Charlie Schmidt finished second, Buhler placed third, fifth starter Turk Letizia of Milwaukee placed fourth and sixth starter Justin Ritchie of New London rounded out the top five.

The 25-lap Grand National A main got off to a rousing start as octogenarian polesitter Dick Hed of Plymouth dueled side by side with outside front row starter Matt Loehr for the first six laps of the race.

On lap 7, the cushion-pounding Loehr finally surged ahead of the low-riding Hed in turn four. The lone caution of the race appeared one lap later for a spin involving rookie Jacob Falk.

Loehr used a strong restart to pull away to a commanding full-straightaway lead over third starting Donny Kulow of Elkhart Lake over the final 18 laps of the race on the way to his seventh career PDTR Grand National A main victory.

Donny Kulow came home second, two-time PDTR Grand National champion Don Sorce Jr. of West Allis finished third after starting sixth, 2019 PDTR Grand national champ Tyler Kulow of Plymouth placed fourth after starting seventh and Hed rounded out the top five.

Polesitter Justin Bauer of Sheboygan Falls seized the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap B Mod as third starter Jonathon Baumann of Sheboygan moved into second on lap 3.

The first of three caution flags appeared on lap 7 when Travis Schmidt of Waldo spun in turn four after contact with Sheboygan’s Trevor Frank, which sent Frank to the rear of the field.

On the restart, Frank, James Fischer of Oostburg and Patrick Hanson of Sheboygan Falls collided in turn two to bring out the second caution flag. Following the restart, Baumann flexed his muscle along the high groove to take over the to spot on lap 9 in turn two.

The third and final caution flag appeared on lap 12 when Jonathan Hitsman of Sheboygan and Gary Glander of Sheboygan Falls made contact in turn four. Fifth starter Steve Lorier used a nifty low move on the restart to steal the lead away from Baumann in turn two on lap 13.

However, Baumann battled back on the cushion to pull even with Lorier three laps later with the two drivers dueling side by side over the next three laps before Lorier finally surged ahead for good on lap 18 along the inside groove.

Lorier went on to claim his third career PDTR B Mod A-main victory by a five-car margin over Baumann, who placed second. Bauer finished third, Rory Welch of Grafton, who started second, finished fourth and 12th starter Spencer Long of Sheboygan Falls came home fifth.

Jack Vanderboom of Dousman won the first 12-lap 360 Sprint Car B main and Adam Miller of Plymouth claimed the victory in the second 12-lap 360 Sprint Car B main.

Duncan gets last corner, last lap pass for thrilling Fremont Speedweek win

Sunday, June 13, 2021

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Cole Duncan pounced when he had to – the last corner of the last lap – to win night two of the Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek Presented by Hercules Tires at Fremont Speedway. Duncan squeezed between the front stretch wall and race-long leader Danny Dietrich to claim his fifth FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobil 1 victory by a margin of just 0.248 seconds.

Ironically Duncan’s victory on Kistler Engines/Kistler Racing Products Night surpassed his dad Rodney Duncan’s career wins with the series and it was his sixth career win at Fremont, also surpassing his dad’s career win total at “The Track That Action Built.”

The 40-lap event featured intense battles throughout involving Dietrich, Justin Peck and Duncan which had the capacity crowd on their feet and roaring above the sound of the sprint cars.

“I ain’t never had that much patience in my life. I knew I had a run off of two on Danny and I seen Peck kept sneaking under me in three and four but I knew I was better on the top. I knew as soon as I showed Danny my nose he would block that line. And I said screw it and I hung it out on the top and he raced me clean off the corner…I don’t even think we hit wheels. You couldn’t have fit a piece of paper between his wheel and my wheel and my wheel and the wall. Man what a hell of a race. Thank you fans for coming out…a hell of a crowd. I’ve got family and friends here and Sheldon and Julie from Ohio Heating here…I hope we made them proud tonight. My family…my dad, Jamie, my wife, my mom missed this one…she had graduation parties or something but she won’t miss the next one I bet. Pretty cool to pass my dad in All Star wins. I look up to my old man a lot and to get pass him in that win column…it’s really really tough to come by these All Star wins right now. This is probably the best I’ve seen in All Star field of cars since my dad ran in the 90s and early 2000s,” said Duncan beside his Ohio Heating/Helms Construction/Motor City Transport/Wolf Composites backed #22.

“In the heat and the dash we were just kind of hanging on. I’ll give it to my guys…they just went to work on it. Man they got the tune on it there. As soon as I got the wing back it took off. I knew we were going to be good but I raced hard with Peck there but I kind of slid across the track and I thought I may have sealed my tire up but after a few laps it worked itself back in. It was a technical track. You can’t say it didn’t put on a good race. We came from eighth and a last lap pass I don’t think you can ask for a much better race than that,” added Duncan.

Dietrich, who hails from Gettysburg, PA., led laps 1-39.75, and second was very disappointing to say the least.

“Hats off for all the fans for coming out. We came out here to Ohio because Ohio puts on the best racing in my mind. The fans are awesome and the tracks put on really good shows. I’ve been wanting to come here since I was here in 2014. Son-of-a-bitch we missed it by a quarter of a lap. He was coming, he was fast. I was trying to lean on him a little bit but not touch and try to get him to check up from the outside fence and beat him to the line but Cole is always good here. It’s a tough one to swallow. I really want to win in Ohio bad. We’re here for the whole week and we’re excited and I think everyone knows we’re here to play. We’ve had two really good nights. I love these bullrings…I love the slick,” said Dietrich beside his Sweeney Chevy Buick GMC/Pace Performance/Weikerts Livestock/Sandoes Fruit Market backed machine.

Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck really got his start in winged sprint car racing coming to Fremont Speedway and settled for third at the checkers.

“I felt like every now and then I could get a run and keep up with those guys. But Cole by far had the best car. He showed me his nose a couple of times and it was all I could do to try and keep him behind me. I need to get more consistent getting off of four here and I felt that’s where I would lose ground. All and all this Buch 13 has been pretty fast the past couple of nights so we will throw the wrenches on and try to get it a little bit faster and gets some wins this week,” said Peck beside his Coastal Race Parts.com/TheTree Center/Buch Motorsports Store.com backed #13.

Not to be outdone, the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints also put on a fantastic show with veterans Paul Weaver and Alvin Roepke battling for the lead while dealing with lapped traffic. With three laps to go the duo made contact exciting turn four and then Weaver got caught up in a lapped car spinning. Roepke was able to nurse his car which had a mangled front wing the last three laps for his second win of the season and the 11th of his career at Fremont.

“I think Paul was a little better than us…I got a little lucky there. But hey, I won at Fremont Speedway on a speedweek night. It doesn’t get much better than that,” said an elated Roepke beside his Fremont Auto Parts/NAPA/Darmofal Racing backed #99.

Dietrich and Zeb Wise brought the field to green for the All Star 40 lap feature with Dietrich bolting into the lead over Wise, Stuart Brubaker and Peck. Dietrich built a sizeable lead by lap five over Wise and Peck while Brubaker, Duncan and Cory Eliason battled hard for fourth. Back to back cautions on lap eight kept the field close and when the green flew Dietrich pulled away again while Peck and Duncan put on a show battling for second.

Following a caution on lap 12, Dietrich couldn’t escape this time as both Peck and Duncan stayed close while Wise and Travis Philo battled for fourth. Heavy lapped traffic came into play at the half-way point as Dietrich continued to hold a narrow lead over Peck and Duncan. With seven laps to go Dietrich had been able to put a couple of lapped cars between himself and Duncan and Peck.

But Duncan was able to use the high line exiting turn two and made up valuable real estate once around the lapped cars. As they took the white flag Duncan charged to Dietrich’s outside but Dietrich moved up and blocked. Entering the final two turns Duncan sailed his car to the top and pinched himself between Dietrich and the wall and won the drag race to the checkers.

In the 25 lap 305 A-main Chris Verda and Kody Brewer brought the field to green with Brewer gaining the slight advantage over Verda, Weaver and fifth starting Roepke. Weaver moved into second by lap four and quickly pressured Brewer, eventually grabbing the top spot on lap eight.

A caution on lap 13 saw the running order Weaver, Brewer, Roepke, Verda, Brandon Moore, Matt Foos and Steve Rando. Weaver would keep Roepke at bay until they entered heavy lapped traffic with just six laps to go. Roepke closed quickly and as they came to the line to complete lap 22 the duo made contact with Roepke leading by a bumper. Entering turns one and two Roepke had just cleared a lapped car which spun right in front of Weaver sending him spinning.

Roepke had a completely destroyed front wing that was rubbing on his right front tire. But, he was able to nurse it home for the win over Brewer, Verda, Foos and Rando.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, June 26 on Willie’s Sales and Service Night. The Kistler Racing Products/All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group will battle for $4,000 to win while AFCS 305 Sprints and Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks will also be in action.

Beason Bests POWRi West at Creek County Speedway

Tulsa, Oklahoma (June 12, 2021) It took veteran driver Jonathan Beason less than five laps to drive from his eighth place starting position to the front of the pack in tonight’s Lucas Oil POWRi West A-main event at Creek County Speedway.

Making a three-wide pass on series veterans Eric Fenton and Michelle Decker to take the lead, once out front Beason set sail and picked up his first POWRi West win of the 2021 season. Behind him, Decker held off a late race challenge from defending series champion Andrew Felker to pick up her first podium finish of the 2021 season, and earn the Realty Connect second place bonus. Felker moved forward from his sixth starting spot to round out the podium, followed by Kyle Jones and Fenton.

In Smith Titanium heat race action, Ryan Padgett was on his way to his first POWRi West heat race win when Beason made a last lap pass to steal it away. Beason’s sixth to first run also earned him the Rod End Supply High Passing Points Award.

Up next for the Lucas Oil POWRi West Midget League presented by Realty Connect will be a trip down the turnpike to I-44 Riverside Speedway on Saturday, June 26th. The last time the series was at I-44 it was Kyle Jones and the Trifecta Motorsports team picking up the win. It will be the series’ fourth visit to I-44 this season.

Dirt Cup Tune Up to Smith

6/12/21

Alger, WA – Skagit Speedway stole one from Mother Nature on Saturday night, running four classes and seventy five cars through the night at a breakneck pace to complete the full night of racing before Summer Thunderstorms rolled through Skagit county. In the final tune up before the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup in two weeks, Cam Smith won his third feature of 2021 in the Budweiser 360 Sprint Cars.

Unlike his previous two wins which came on late race passes, Smith would lead wire to wire for his third victory of the year. Smith never had it easy, as Trey Starks was on him early and often as the pair cut through traffic lap after lap, with Starks matching Smith move for move through the back of the field. Smith would hold strong all the way through to take the win, with JJ Hickle passing Starks in the late stages to take home second. Jason Solwold, Hickle and Brock Lemley won the heats while Colton Heath grabbed quick time.

Corey Summers won his first career main event in the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints, leading every lap of the main with Greg Hamilton and Justin Youngquist finishing second and third. Hamilton set quick time with Joe Lyon and Eric Turner winning heats.

It was another barnburner of a main event for the NW Focus Midgets at Skagit Speedway with Alex Peck picking up his first win on dirt after leading all 25 laps of the feature. Nick Evans pressed Peck hard through slower traffic and pulled even with Peck on the final lap out of turn two, but Peck would hold strong and kept the lead to score the win. Evans, who broke the 26 year track record set by John Starks earlier in the night, settled for second ahead of Nik Larson. Peck was a heat race winner, as was Jesse Munn and Travis Jacobson. Jamee Gardner won the B Main.

Colin Sims picked up his first win of the year in the Outlaw Tuners and second for his career. Sims took the lead on lap five from Vance Hibbard and held off a furious last lap run by Howard Vos to secure the win. Vos and Hibbard ran second and third, while the heats were won by Mike Macpherson and Jon Edwards.

Wilmot Raceway

(Wilmot, Wis., Saturday, June 12, 2021)--Beaver Dam's Scott Nietzel captured his first 30-lap Bumper to Bumper Interstates Racing Association(IRA) Sprint Car feature at Wilmot Raceway in eight years Saturday, June 12.
Nietzel overtook early race leader Jeremy Schultz of Beaver Dam on the eighth lap of the non-stop main, pulling away through lapped traffic enroute to his second IRA win in as many nights having won on Friday, June 11 in Hartford, Michigan. IRA point leader Jake Blackhurst of Hanna City, IL caught Schultz on the final circuit for runner-up with Schultz coming across third. Mike Reinke of Howards Grove was fourth and Blake Nimee of Oswego, IL fifth.
Caledonia's Chris Carlson came from last starting spot in the field due to mechanical problems, but came through to take his sixth 20-lap modified feature win of the season. Carlson, who has won every 2021 main event at Wilmot, worked past early race leader Mike Simons of Genoa City on the restart following a caution with 11 laps remaining. Eagle's Steve Mueller came on to take second. Sheboygan's Joel Seegert third. Genoa City's Nick Simons fourth. West Allis Bart Sievert fifth.
"We couldn't keep the motor running, so we had to get pushed to start the feature which put us, by rule, in the back of the field," said Carlson. "We'll have to see what is going on with the motor. This is a great win because it's my dad's birthday, so this is for him."
Trevor's Chris Dodd headed up the field every lap of the 20-lap Autometer-Brewington Electric Wisconsin Wingless Sprints feature scoring his second Wilmot main event win in a row. Allen Hafford of Beach Park, IL was second. Kansasville's Ryan Marshall third. Bristol's Chris Klemko fourth. Clayton Rossmann of Wadsworth, IL fifth.
"The car was really dialed in," said Dodd. "I have to thank my great crew, sponsors, and everyone who supports this team."
Nick Petska of Spring Grove, IL won his second 20-lap IRA Lightning Sprints feature of the season at Wilmot. Petska overtook early race leader Nick Sheridan of Fox Lake, IL on the restart following a caution with 11 laps to go. Pleasant Prarie's Mike Neau, starting tenth, came on strong at the finish to take runner-up. Ron Brannam of Barrington, IL was third. C.J. Malleug of Johnsburg, IL fourth. Oak Creek's Mark Heinert fifth.
"Nick (Sheridan) was strong in his first night out," said Petska. "I didn't know where anyone was but I knew I needed to keep running hard. It's great for our team to finish one-two(Both cars are owned by Larry Neau)."

Clouser Sweeps POWRi WAR Weekend with Feature Win at Spoon River Speedway

Belleville, IL. (06/12/2021) Battling on the High-Banks of Spoon River Speedway for the first time in two racing seasons, the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League would put on a display of driving exhilaration as Mario Clouser would grab the coveted feature victory after a hard-fought clash over the field, earning the feature win at Spoon River Speedway to cap off the Illinois race weekend.

Early racing excitement with the POWRi WAR Sprint League at Spoon River Speedway would find Mario Clouser and Xavier Doney each wheel their way to heat race victories with Garrett Aitken claiming the night’s high-point qualifier award and earning a pole-starting spot in the feature event.

With Aitken leading the field to the initial green-flag start and Clouser lining up on the outside an epic battle of an open-wheel adrenaline rush would break out as the green flag was waved. Garrett Aitken would use the pole-starting spot to his advantage taking over the lead in the opening stages, leading the first several revolutions around the fast high-banked racing surface.

With lap traffic coming into play, Mario Clouser would strike, pacing the leading Aitken for multiple laps as Clouser would use a slide-job on the exit of four to pass for the lead. Never giving up the front-running position Clouser would earn his fourth feature win of the season with POWRi WAR.

Staying close to the lead late, Garrett Aitken would finish in a hard-fought runner-up position as Mitch Wissmiller finished a close third. Rookie of the Year leader within POWRi WAR Xavier Doney would show speed all event, driving to finish a solid fourth with Riley Kreisel rounding out the top-five finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League at Charleston Speedway.

Chuck Hebing Captures His Second A-Main Win Of The Season At Penn Can Speedway

(Susquehanna, Pa) After a long and storied career, Chuck Hebing is still showing his dominance and he did so Friday night at the Penn Can Speedway by leading all 25 laps en route to his second PST A-Main win of the season and 53rd overall in his career.

The lone caution came at the drop of the green flag when Denny Peebles fired before Hebing the starter. When the yellow flag came out, Mark Smith and Jeff Trombley made contact which caused Smith to suffer a right rear flat. Smith was able to replace the right rear but would have to start at the tail end of the field.

This now had Hebing and Jordan Thomas on the front row. Hebing took command early but the battle for second was heavily contested early on between Jordan Thomas and Paulie Colagiovanni. The two would go lap by lap which allowed Hebing to increase his advantage.

Finally on lap nine Colagiovanni dived to the bottom and made it stick, taking over second. At about this point of the race, Hebing finally encountered lap traffic where he continued to clear cars building a race lead over Colagiovanni. Colagiovanni would begin to pull away from Thomas who was holding on for third as Matt Farnham and Davie Franek were all contesting for the final podium spot.

With five laps remaining, Hebing cleared three more lap cars which was all he needed to hold off Colagiovanni for his second win of 2021. Jordan Thomas would finish third, followed by Matt Farnham, and Davie Franek.

The heat winners were Mark Smith, Denny Peebles, and Paulie Colagiovanni. The dash win went to Danny Varin which paid off for him as he was able to advance three positions and come home with a sixth-place finish.

The series continues through this weekend in Pennsylvania with a visit to Selinsgrove Speedway for the Joe Whitcomb Memorial.

After a Decade of Trying, Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series Driver Gets The Job Done With First TMS Victory!

Ft. Worth, TX (06/12/21) by DarinShort.com. The Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series All Star Sprint Car Showdown at Texas Motor Speedway’s Dirt Track is now in the books, resulting in two drivers picking up first-time TMS victories at the 4/10-mile speedway – and both compete regularly in the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series.

On Friday night, Austin Mundie stunned the crowd (and himself, as he mentioned during his post-race interview) when he was able to power by an ageless Sammy Swindell for the win from his 9th place starting spot. It was his first ‘Bandits win in several seasons of trying – and his first win utilizing a 410C.I. engine. On top of that, it was the first time he had ever competed driving a 410. Truly an epic accomplishment that the young driver will never forget.

When the 39 Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series teams arrived back at TMS on Friday June 11th, very warm, dry and breezy conditions would prevail. Some of the Thursday night teams would experience mechanical issues and could not return, while a few teams that couldn’t make the opener on Thursday would join in on the action. Sammy Swindell was one of those drivers experiencing engine woes early on in the event.

Continuing Thursday night’s trend of no cars getting upside down, the 10-lap heats would click off without major skirmishes.

Young Oklahoma driver, Chance Morton, would collect the most finishing and passing points in heat four to earn the pole of the championship feature event. He would come from 9th in his heat race to finish 2nd. Friday night runner-up Channin Tankersley would garner the second highest points total after winning heat one from his 4th place starting position.

An enthusiastic “No Limits” sized crowd would cheer on the 24-car starting field as they thundered down the frontstretch to take the green flag for the championship 25-lapper. Channin Tankersely would vault out to the point, while Casey Burkham would wrestle 2nd place from John Carney II.

Tankersley would encounter heavy lapped traffic on lap seven, when 8th place starter Jeb Sessums would make his presence known by getting all the way up to 2nd place when the one and only red flag period of the two-day event would take place after polesitter Chance Morton would climb the right rear tire of another car, causing it to flip up the track to the wall in corner two.

With the crowd holding their breath, Morton would emerge from his mangled car, resulting in the crowd offering him a huge round of applause as consolation.

The red flag incident occurred on lap 14, which meant there were 11 laps to go – and plenty of time for the front running group of cars to get back into lapped traffic, as there were still 20 cars on the track racing.

With all lapped cars going to the tail when the event would resume, Tankersley would continue to lead with Sessums, Burkham and Thursday night winner Mundie in tow. John Carney II would make up the balance of the top 5.

Sessums would briefly take command of the second place position, when out of nowhere Mundie would blast by him with his sights set on Tankersley.

Tankersley would extend his lead to 10 car lengths as he approached lapped traffic. Tankersley would ride the cushion while Mundie would select primarily the middle groove.

Now mired in heavy lapped traffic, Tankersley and 7th-place starter Mundie would slice and dice their way from bottom to top – separated by a scant car length at times – with Tankersley being able to cling on to the top spot.

Coming down for the checkers Mundie would make one final attempt to clear secure the lead, when Tankersley would retain his high-side momentum and take the checkers first.

And after a decade of 2nd place TMS finishes, including June 10th, 2021, Channin Tankersley would collect his first-ever win there, and a hard-earned one, at that.

On the behalf of the hard-working staff of the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series, we would like to thank the amazing racing fans for their pumped-up attitude and appreciation of the racing action, and the massive staffing effort of Texas Motor Speedway who worked the event with precision detail.

The event managing staff of X.CELERATED was also a pleasure to work with from the onset of the event concept back in last November, all the way through event execution. Their highly experienced and talent-loaded staff is a great example of what all event management groups should strive to become. Click www.raceXR.com for links and info to their past and upcoming events.

We would also like to thank the businesses that supported the event with a wide variety of driver awards throughout the two-day event.

Last night’s special awards went to:

The $300 Hard Charger Award went to Claud Estes, after advancing 13 positions from his 20th starting position to finish in 7th. Thank you to Patriot Garage Door & Service, and Pony Express Honey Company for providing these awards.

The $500 Highest Finishing Driver choosing to compete with a 305C.I. engine went to Chase Brewer, with Cabinets By Tommie, D-UP Racing and Go-2 Electrical sponsoring the award.

The “Driver Running in 8th Place on Lap 8” award, presented by Patriot Garage Door & Service, and the “Driver Running in 9th Place on Lap 9” award, presented by Cabinets By Tommy, both went to Norman Oklahoma racer, Danny Jennings, which added $200 to his earnings.

Thank you also to KoolTrikes.com for providing a $500 “Last Lap Pass for the Win” award which was nearly collected by Austin Mundie. Thanks also to Smiley's Racing Products, The Peterson Agencies and Griffith Truck & Equipment for their support of the ‘Bandits series.

Next up on Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series schedule will be the Bandits Outlaw Summer Nationals at Kennedale Speedway Park on Saturday June 19th. Racing action will fire off at 7pm.

Thomas Becomes Newest Sprint Feature Winner

At Gas City I-69 Speedway Friday Night

GAS CITY, Ind., June 12 – Last year Michael “Buddy” Kofoid finished second in the Indiana Midget Week USAC NOS Energy Drink national midget race at Gas City I-69 Speedway. On Friday night for the 2021 version of Indiana Midget Week at Gas City the Penngrove, Calif.-based driver did that one better, leading all 30 laps to earn a runaway, $4,000 victory over Emerson Axsom of Franklin, Ind.

Kevin Thomas Jr. of Cullman, Ala., finished sixth in the midget feature and then won the 25-lap non-wing sprint car feature by 5.221 seconds over last week’s winner, Scotty Weir of Marion, Ind. Thomas was the fourth different non-wing sprint car feature winner at Gas City this year in as many races at the quarter-mile dirt oval.

Kofoid started second in the 30-lap midget feature and already had a 1.808-second lead over polesitter Jason McDougal of Broken Arrow, Okla., by lap five. His lead was about the same, 1.802 seconds, when Justin Grant of Avon, Ind., slowed in Turn 2 and stopped on the backstretch with eight laps down while running seventh to bring out the first caution.

Axsom used the high groove in Turn 2 to pass McDougal for second on the restart, but Kofoid was already way ahead. Kofoid’s 2.163-second lead evaporated with 13 laps down, however, when the second yellow waved for a four-car crash in Turn 4 involving Jerry Coons Jr. of Cloverdale, Ind.; Chris Windom, a native of Canton, Ill.; Hayden Williams of Auckland, New Zealand, and Bryant Wiedeman of Colby, Kan. All escaped unhurt.

Daison Pursley of Locust Grove, Okla., passed McDougal on lap 14 for third, but McDougal got the position back on the following lap. While they were racing each other, Kofoid was able to once again rebuild his lead.

McDougal passed Axsom for second on lap 19, but on the last lap McDougal stopped in Turn 3 after something broke on his car on the backstretch. The problem was reportedly a broken axle, and his runner-up finish was suddenly transformed to 15th in the final rundown.

Following Kofoid and Axsom across the line was Logan Seavey of Sutter, Calif., who qualified the hard way by winning the B-main and came from the 11th starting spot in the feature. Pursley placed fourth and Cannon McIntosh of Bixby, Okla., rounded out the top five. Four of the top-five finishers were teenagers, as Kofoid is 19; Axsom is 16; Seavey is 24; Pursley is 16 and McIntosh is 18.

Kofoid was eighth in Fatheadz Eyewear qualifying and fourth in his heat before trouncing his competition in the feature with his Keith Kunz-Curb-Agajanian Motorsports No. 67, which is an IWX/Bullet by Spike with a Speedway Toyota engine. The entry is sponsored by Mobil 1 and Toyota Racing Development.

Tanner Thorson of Minden, Nev., was the hard charger, as he started 20th and finished eighth.

Thomas started fourth in the 25-lap non-wing sprint feature in his KT Motorsports DRC Speedway Chevy No. 9K, which is sponsored by Dr. Pepper, McDonalds and KT Construction Services.

Weir, who started second, passed polesitter Jadon Rogers of Worthington, Ind., for the lead with a move to the outside in Turn 2 on the first lap, and then showed the way for the first 12 laps until Thomas passed him working lap 13.

Thomas had just passed the start-finish line to record the 13th lap when behind him something broke on the famous Paul Hazen No. 57 driven by defending track champion Max Adams, a native of Loomis, Calif., now living in Marion, Ind. Adams hit the outside wall in Turn 4 very hard to bring out the first caution flag. Luckily he wasn’t hurt.

Afterwards Adams said he wasn’t 100 percent certain what broke. “I think the drag link failed from contact earlier in the race, causing me to lose steering, but it’s really hard to say,” he said.

A second yellow still with 13 laps down flew when Chet Williams of Newburgh, Ind., spun between Turns 2 and 3, but Thomas was up to all challengers on the restart and led the rest of the 25-lap race, crossing the line with a straightaway lead.

There was a barnburner of a battle for second, however. Weir bicycled hard in Turn 4 on lap 20 but saved it and he took home the runner-up honors followed by Thomas Meseraull of Waveland, Ind.; McIntosh, and Brady Bacon of Winchester, Ind.

There was only one flip during the evening. A.J. Hopkins of Brownsburg, Ind., flipped in Turn 4 with five laps down in the fourth sprint heat, but luckily escaped injury.

The event was streamed live on FloRacing.com.

Beth Boles, wife of Indianapolis Motor Speedway President Doug Boles and mother of IndyCar star Conor Daly, got a ride in the track’s two-seat non-wing sprint car during the course of the evening. Matt Goodnight of Hartford City, Ind., was the driver. One lucky fan also won a ride in it at a future date. Fans can buy a ride in the two-seater throughout the season by inquiring at the track’s gift shop.

This coming Friday, June 18, is the fourth annual Jack and Jiggs Classic featuring a five-division program of non-wing 410 sprint cars, Schaeffer’s Oil Indiana RaceSaver 305 winged sprint cars, modifieds, street stocks and hornets. The pit gate opens at 3 p.m. and the grandstands at 5 p.m. Hot laps are at 6:30 p.m. and the racing starts at 7:30 p.m. An adult general admission ticket is only $15, while kids 12 and under are free. A pit pass costs $30.

SAGE BORDENAVE BECOMES FOURTH DIFFERENT WINNER OF 2021 WMR SEASON

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (June 11, 2021) – French Camp’s Sage Bordenave earned his first career Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction feature on Friday night, grabbing the 20-lap contest at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif. The win makes Bordenave the fourth different victor of the 2021 season and came in just the second start for the Micro Sprint graduate.

Antioch’s Shawn Arriaga and series points leader David Prickett of Fresno split the eight lap heat races. An eight-car inversion placed Bordenave on the pole for the 20-lap main event.

Action slowed on lap nine when Keoni Texeira flipped the No.58 Spike Chassis. He was uninjured. Brentwood’s Blake Bower restarted third after starting fifth, then went to work on Megan Moorhead of Santa Paula for second. Bower grabbed the position on lap 12 and aimed to reel in Bordenave for the lead. Prickett overhauled Moorhead on lap 14 with Prunedale’s Caleb Debem following through into fourth a lap later.

Bower tried for the lead on lap 16, looking on the inside in turn one, but was unable to complete the pass. Bordenave drove ahead in Kevin Felkins’ #35B for the victory followed by Bower, Prickett, Debem, and Moorhead. Oakley’s Bryant Bell debuted in sixth as well.

Western Midget Racing continues June 25-26 with races at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville and Ventura Raceway. Both nights will be streamed live on FloRacing.com

Ian Madsen finally breaks through with All Star win to open speedweek at Attica

Friday, June 11, 2021

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Coming into Friday night’s 39th Annual Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek Presented by Hercules Tires event at Attica Raceway Park, Ian Madsen had finished second in FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champion Presented by Mobil 1 competition five times and just couldn’t get into victory lane. No more as the St. Mary’s New South Wales, Australia native took the lead on lap 14 and held off a charging Cory Eliason to score his first ever win at Attica on Ohio Laborers/Ohio CAT Night and it was worth $6,000.

“I’m kind of speechless right now. It’s been so long since I’ve won a race. It’s an incredible feeling. I cannot thank Sam McGhee Motorsports enough for giving me the opportunity this year. It just such a relief. I was kind of ride less there at the end of last year and those guys put a lot of belief in me to come out and win races this year. It’s been painfully close a couple of times. It’s just awesome to get the first one. I can’t thank my guys enough…Kevin, Payton and of course Sam McGhee, Kathy and Mike McGhee at home…I know they are watching and this one is for you guys,” said Madsen beside his XYZ Machining/Winters Performance Products/Champion Racing Oil/FK Rod Ends/Finer Cuts Lawn Care backed #11.

Eliason, from Visalia, California, closed the final hand full of laps but just couldn’t catch Madsen and settled for second.

“We battled a stumble on the starts. It took about to turn one to get going. Our car was bad ass fast tonight and the track was beautiful. No matter how hard we try here this place eludes me but we get better every time we come here so I think we definitely had a great race car. I feel bad for the guys because we’ve battled this stumble the past couple of weekends. We’ve changed everything but the driver I think. We keep fighting and this is a great start to Ohio Speedweek,” said Eliason beside his Rudeen Racing/Rayce Rudeen Foundation/Hager Realty/Fatheadz Eyewear/Elliotts Custom Trailers and Carts backed #26.

From mid-race on Skylar Gee from Leduc, Alberta, Canada was a force in the 40-lap affair and came home in a solid third place in his initial outing with the Mark Coldren Motorsports 07.

“Hats off to Dalton and Jimmy…they worked their asses off. Hats off to Mark for putting us out here and taking a chance on me. I had a little bit of a slow start to the year but this is the best I’ve ever gone around here. I felt like we had a car to win but I just quite couldn’t get close enough in traffic and yellow would come out. Wish we had another 10 laps,” said Gee beside his Water Treatment by Design/Industrial Controls/Three B Services/Vector Industries/HP Engines backed machine.

Defending and two-time Attica champion Devin Shiels has yet to finish out of the top six in 2021 though a win has eluded him. The Britton, Michigan driver drive around race-long leader Matt Irey on the last lap to score his first victory of the year in the Propane.com/Dirt Nerds Podcast UMP Lat Models. It was Shiels 10th career victory at Attica.

“We’d get a run off the cushion in three and four and I had to use that high line. We’ve been changing stuff. We kind of threw a curve ball tonight…threw a new right front shock on. We were worried it wouldn’t work but it worked,” said Shiels beside his Magic Fountain Auto Wash, Rally’s Hamburgers, Dirt Nerds Podcast, Dundee Products, Banshee Graphics, Performance Machining #51.

Gee and Justin Peck brought the field to green for the 40-lap All Star A-main with Peck thundering into a big lead over Gee, Madsen, Lachlan McHugh, Cap Henry, Eliason, Cole Macedo and Chris Andrews. Andrews brought out the caution with three laps in wiping out a 2.2 second lead for Peck. On the restart while battling for fifth Henry spun.

When the green reappeared Peck once again pulled away while Gee had his hands full battling Madsen who took second on lap eight as the leaders entered very heavy lapped traffic. Peck struggled to get around the lappers and Madsen closed. Peck and Madsen battled hard for the lead and made contact on lap 14 with Madsen assuming the lead as Peck came to a halt.

Now with a clear track Madsen executed a flawless restart to lead Eliason as Gee, Macedo and McHugh battled hard for third. Macedo took third on lap 19 just prior to a caution on lap 21. Again Madsen had a great restart to lead Eliason, Macedo, Gee, TJ Michael and McHugh. Another caution on lap 23 kept the field close but as he had done several times prior Madsen got an excellent restart as Eliason took a little while to gain momentum while Gee and Macedo battled for third.

McHugh brought out the final caution with 10 laps to go and this time when the green flew Eliason hung with Madsen. Madsen maintained the lead as Eliason searched for a way around while Gee, Macedo, Danny Dietrich, Michael and Tyler Courtney gave chase.

Madsen hit his marks perfectly and drove to the win over Eliason, Gee, Macedo and Courtney.

Tyler Thompson and Matt Irey brought the field to green for the 25 lap late model A-main with Irey grabbing the lead as Thompson, Casey Noonan, Dave Hornikel, Matt Potts and Rusty Schlenk gave chase. A rash of cautions slowed the pace early. Hornikel finally took second on lap six as Schlenk battled Thompson for third.

On lap 11 Schlenk tried a big move and he sailed off turn three at full throttle in a scary looking incident that left him going to the pits. On the restart Irey led Hornikel, Thompson and Shiels. Following a lap 18 caution Shiels moved into third and took second a lap later. A final caution set up a five lap shoot-out and Irey and Shiels put on a show running side by side. Shiels, who normally likes the bottom groove, used the cushion in turns three and four and shot into the lead on the final lap to score the win over Irey, Hornikel, Thompson and Justin Chance.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, 25 on Burns Electric/Baumann Auto Group/Advanced Drainage Systems Night. It will feature the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group, the NAPA of Bryan 305 AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales and the Oakshade Raceway/Attica Late Model Series Challenge.

Mario Clouser Claims Charleston Speedway
Victory with POWRi WAR
Belleville, IL. (06/11/2021) For the third time this 2021 racing season, the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League would venture to the fan-favorite fast lap-times of Charleston Speedway with outstanding side-by-side open-wheel action. Winning the night would see Mario Clouser celebrating in his eighth feature series victory within his WAR career.

As twenty-four competitors entered into the event, early racing excitement at Charleston Speedway would find Mario Clouser, Riley Kreisel, and Wesley Smith wheel their way to heat race victories with Clouser running from starting the heat eighth to finishing first while claiming the night’s high-point qualifier award.

With Mario Clouser starting pole and Wesley Smith lined-up on the outside, the field of POWRi WAR drivers would launch to an exciting start as Clouser flexed his driving might grabbing the early lead. Smith would battle the leading Mario for nearly eighteen laps, never quite gaining on the frontrunner.

A pair of late-race cautions would bunch the competitors back together as lap traffic was beginning to come into the equation. Restarting with a bunch of speed would witness Riley Kreisel fly into the top-three even throwing sliders to advance to the runner-up position over Smith. To add to the already exciting feature event, a three-lap shootout would decide the victor as Mario Clouser was able to hold off the hard-charge of Riley Kreisel to capture the feature event, with Kreisel finishing in a close second position. Garrett Aitken would be among the front-runners all event would round out the podium finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi WAR Sprint League at Charleston Speedway.

“That was a fun one for sure, the track was fast, and they made the right call with the intermission track-prep” Mario Clouser would happily say in victory lane. Adding “I can’t thank this team enough, all their hard-work, winning races like this makes it all worth it.”

Grosz and Bosma Top Thrilling Sprint Car Features at Jackson Motorplex

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (June 11, 2021) - Lee Grosz and Brandon Bosma hustled to Victory Lane on Friday evening during a sprint car event presented by Joel Pingeon Trucking at Jackson Motorplex.

Grosz capitalized on a fast car and fortune to score his fifth career Midwest Power Series victory, which ranks second on the all-time list. The 360ci winged sprint car feature was also sanctioned by the Midwest Sprint Touring Series. It marked the 12th career triumph with the series, which also ranks second on the career wins list, for Grosz.

Brooke Tatnell drove to the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap main event as Grosz was fourth. Grosz advanced to third on Lap 2 and to second place on Lap 11. He took the top spot on Lap 15 when Tatnell slid out of the preferred bottom groove in turn four. Grosz led the lap by 0.064 of a second, but Tatnell reclaimed first place in turn two.

A caution came out before the lap was completed, placing Grosz into the lead for the restart with 10 laps remaining. It didn't take long for traffic to play a factor as Grosz pushed up the track in turn one on Lap 21 while closing in on a car to lap, allowing Tatnell to fire into the top spot. However, one lap later Tatnell got into the back of a car he was attempting to lap in turn four. The contact forced him into the berm and spun his car around, bringing out the final caution of the race.

Grosz inherited the lead and pulled away to win by 1.750 seconds over Jody Rosenboom, who charged from 10th to the runner-up result. Jack Dover rounded out the podium with Tim Estenson finishing fourth and Eric Lutz fifth.

Grosz set quick time during qualifying to kick off the night before Estenson, Dover and Tatnell each earned a heat race victory.

Bosma came out on top of a thrilling Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series 20-lap main event, which featured four official lead changes.

Trevor Serbus charged from fourth into the lead on the opening lap. Dusty Ballenger powered into first place on Lap 5, but Serbus regained the top spot during a restart on Lap 6. Ballenger chased Serbus for the ensuing nine laps before capitalizing on Serbus getting into the berm in turns three and four to move back into the lead.

Bosma, who started eighth, also took advantage and advanced into second place. He used the outside lane to his benefit on Lap 16 to pull next to Ballenger down the backstretch before taking the lead in turns three and four.

It was far from easy sailing though as Bosma got into the rear of a driver he was attempting to lap on Lap 17. He pushed up the track and 11 th-starting Rosenboom, who had just passed Ballenger for second, was about to take the lead when the caution came out.

The caution benefitted Bosma, who restarted in the lead and held on during the ensuing restart as well as a green-white-checkered finish for his first win at Jackson Motorplex this season. The margin of victory was 0.816 of a second.

Ballenger placed second with Rosenboom third, Brandon Allen fourth and Javen Ostermann fifth.

Allen, Rosenboom and Ballenger were the heat race winners.

Jackson Motorplex will be dormant next weekend in preparation for THE SHOWDOWN, which features the 43rd annual AGCO Jackson Nationals June 24-26. The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event pays $50,000 to the win.

Bandits TMS Thriller Leaves Fans in a Dither! No Limit(s) to What Tonight’s Finale May Bring!

Ft. Worth TX (06/11/21) by DarinShort.com. Fans that are familiar with the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series know that unpredictable feature event outcomes are a commonplace. And by the conclusion of the opening night of the All Star Sprint Car Showdown at Texas Motor Speedway’s Dirt Track, it put a huge exclamation point on that statement…all while giving fans and teams a huge blinking sign of ‘things to come’ with the unveiling of the new event promotional team of X.CELERATED, based out of Minnesota.

A warm breezy night would greet fans from near and far at the opening night of the highly anticipated Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series All Star Sprint Car Showdown at Texas Motor Speedway’s Dirt Track located in “No Limits” Texas.

44 Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series teams would assemble from seven states to tackle the ultra-fast 4/10- mile dirt track - that has been sitting dormant for over a year.

Five qualifying heat races would be contested to set the stage for the balance of the event with the top 16 drivers in finishing, plus passing points going directly, straight up to the championship feature.

After the conclusion of the heat races, two veteran championship winning drivers would garner the most points and punch their ticket directly to the front-row of the A-feature, those two would be none other than Johnny Herrera and Sammy Swindell.

The feature event would fire off with the crowd anticipating a thrilling duel between Herrera and Swindell – and that pair would pull out to a 10-car lead over the field until a quick caution would come out for young up-and-coming driver Austin Saunders, who suffered engine woes.

As the event would resume, Swindell would take the point in the Delaware restart. He would resume the lead, pulling away to a 10-car lead, when Herrera would teeter on the corner four cushion and allow a freight train of teams past him – including a hard-charging 9th place starter Austin Mundie.

Swindell would encounter lapped traffic by the sixth circuit and would breeze by cars as if he were on a track by himself, while Mundie quietly picked off cars, about 20-car lengths behind in distance.

With the field racing across several lines atop the hammer-down speedplant, the event would remain under green flag conditions until lap 17, when near disaster would strike the polesitter, Johnny Herrera, when his left-front shock would become unbolted, quickly leading to a variety of front suspension issues causing him to come to a stop on the backstretch, thus ending his great outing.

Then, another driver that was lurking in the wings would throw his hat into the ring on the ensuing restart, when “J2”, John Carney II, would power by Swindell on the low groove of corner two, only to have Swindell throw a massive slider in return the next pair of corners.

Undaunted, Carney would repass Swindell the next lap by, with Swindell powering back on the high side and build a 10-car length cushion.

During this swath of lead changes, five laps would quickly click off, when the yellow lights would flicker for 19-year-old Casey Burkham, who would coast to a stop at the top of corner four.

The restart to follow would see Swindell jet out to the lead with Carney and Mundie in tow – with the 24th place starter of Channin Tankersley clearing his path into the top four.

After two laps of racing a couple of cars exiting corner two would make contact, resulting in a spin and another quick yellow.

On what would become the final restart with five laps to go, Austin Mundie would dive across the bow of John Carney to take over the second-place position with his eyes set on the high-flying veteran Swindell.

The next pair of corners, Mundie would keep the throttle mashed to the floorboard on the high side squeaking by Swindell – with Tankersley powering by Swindell in the middle.

Mundie would amass a 15-car length distance at the checkers over Tankersley and Swindell, much to the delight of the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track crowd.

Mundie has competed several ‘Bandits events over the span of the past six seasons, with Tankersley doing the same…in a ribbing manner, and similar fashion to the “PA Posse’s vs. Outlaws” comparison, the All Star Showdown ‘score’ is now ‘Bandits, 1, Veteran Champions, 0, going into tonight’s Bandits Outlaws Sprint Series All Star Sprint Car Showdown finale.

If you couldn’t make to last night’s event and are now kicking yourself for missing it, grab the fam, get in your vehicle and head over for another great night of outlaw sprint car racing at Texas Motor Speedway’s Dirt Track.

Tonight’s hot laps are slated for 7:30pm and racing at 8pm. If you happen to notice, that is a half-hour later than originally scheduled, due to the position of the sun in the sky. It’s warm and dry and the track officials want to make sure the drivers have optimal racing conditions to show off their driving prowess – and the track’s potential, as evidenced by both in last night’s racing program.

No major crashes took place throughout the course of the sprint car event, and not one car in the field ended up getting upside down.

For event tickets, you can purchase them now at www.raceXR.com or you can buy them at the gate tonight.

Tonight is a completely brand new event, with no carry-over from last night’s show. Rounding out the three-division racing card will be the Southern Modifieds and Factory Stocks.

4 – Austin Mundie (started 9th)

Mullen collects fourth career NOSA victory at Devils Lake


By Mike Spieker

CRARY, N.D. (June 8, 2021) – The Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprints made their first of two visits of the 2021 season to Devils Lake Speedway on Saturday night. Grand Forks driver Brendan Mullen picked up the feature win - his second of the season and the fourth of his career.

“It feels really good,” said Mullen after the race. “We’ve wrecked a couple of cars already this year and have had a lot of shop time lately. Things haven’t gone exactly perfect but we are learning and that’s what it is all about for us right now.”

Greg Nikitenko and Zach Omdahl led the field of 15 to the green flag for the 25-lap main event.

Minot veteran Nikitenko jumped out to the early lead. Nikitenko led the first eight circuits until both Omdahl and Mullen snuck by, relegating him back to third.

Omdahl was fast on the cushion, holding nearly a 10 car length lead over Mullen.

“Track position was a big deal. We were lucky to start on the outside of the second row and just kind of get comfortable early on,” continued Mullen. “Nikitenko slipped up over the cushion and we were lucky to get by him. Then I just chased Zach for forever and couldn’t make up any ground on him. Luckily a yellow came out.”

The yellow was displayed on lap nine for a spin in turn one. On the ensuing restart, Wade Nygaard charged from fourth to nearly take the lead away from Omdahl. Nikitenko also drove around the outside of Mullen to move Mullen back to fourth. Those passes were negated, however, as the caution lights came on again before the lap was completed.

“I totally botched the restart and got passed on both sides,” said Mullen. “Thankfully it got called back and Wade showed me where to go when he passed me on the inside. We used that and snuck into the lead.”

Using the moisture on the extreme inside groove, Mullen grabbed the point as the green flag flew once again. From there, the driver of the Native Nations Cannabis No. 11M pulled away to a big lead.

The race wasn’t over yet, however. The topside of the speedway began to take rubber and as Mullen began to approach traffic, that allowed Omdahl and Nygaard to close in.

With under five to go, both Omdahl and Nygaard were all over Mullen as Nygaard slipped past Omdahl to take over second. With two to go, Nygaard dove to the inside to attempt a slide job on Mullen in turn one. Mullen’s momentum carried back into the lead and the fourth-year driver held off his mentor on the final circuit to pick up the win.

The win was Mullen’s second at the speedway, but first NOSA-sanctioned win at the track.

RESULTS:
A Feature (25 Laps): 1. 11M-Brendan Mullen[4]; 2. 9N-Wade Nygaard[8]; 3. 17-Zach Omdahl[2]; 4. 8H-Jade Hastings[6]; 5. 31-Shane Roemeling[9]; 6. 6N-Greg Nikitenko[1]; 7. 0-Nick Omdahl[7]; 8. 55-Nick Ranten[3]; 9. 26-Blake Egeland[5]; 10. 99-Jordan Graham[10]; 11. 10TRB-Bob Martin[11]; 12. 14-Tom Egeland[13]; 13. 4-Colton Young[15]; 14. 41T-Travis Strandell[12]; 15. 2-Tee Young[14]

Dream Come True- Flint Scores Emotional CRSA Win at Fonda

(FONDA, NY) – Josh Flint spent his childhood watching his dad make laps at “The Track of Champions” at the famed Fonda Speedway. Flint’s racing journey took him to Sportsman Modifieds and the Modified division over the years, before making the switch to 305 and 360 sprint cars.

Flint’s first sprint car race he attended was at Fonda and that lit the fire to maybe, someday, win a race of his own at Fonda. Sometimes dreams do come true. For Flint, the dream became reality on Saturday June 5, 2021.

Flint and newcomer Chase Moran led the 18-car field to the green flag after Flint pulled the number one pill in the redraw. Flint jumped out to the early lead with Moran in tow. The driver out of Cherry Valley, NY would set a quick pace all alone out front but it was former CRSA Series Champion Jeff Trombley who was the man on the move.

Sporting new colors this weekend, Trombley found something racy up top and starting his ascent into the top five and eventually third position. By lap four Trombley was up five positions to third, then on lap ten made his way around Moran for the number three spot. A fierce battle with Mike Kiser ended with Trombley in second and taking to the whip to catch Flint for the lead.

Over the second half of the race, Flint had the better line in turns one and two, Trombley the better line in three and four. Coming to the two to go signal, Trombley had a little trouble negotiating the outside of turn four and gave Flint the gap he needed to secure the victory.

The victory lane embrace in the checkered flag Fonda Victory Lane told the whole story.

“I’m glad I can stand here in Victory Lane knowing I earned it,” said Flint.

“They said Trombley was barking down the back door and I look up to him so much and he’s got so many laps around here.”

The history of the Flint family racing Modifieds at Fonda goes back to when Flint’s father won the Modified title in 1987.

“It’s been over 30 years since a Flint stood right here. If I could have a chance to win the championship or win a feature here at Fonda, I’d take the Fonda win.”

CRSA Fonda Notes:

JR Hurlburt driving the Mike VanDusen owned No. 56 would round out the top five after fading back from his fourth place starting spot. The racing action would slow just one time for the slow car of Jordan Hutton in turns one and two. He was assisted off the track and his night was cut short with rear end issues.

Next on the schedule for the Super Gen Products CRSA 305 Sprints is a trip to the Land of Legends Raceway on Saturday June 19. Quickly followed by a trip to another Deyo-promoted facility- Utica-Rome Speedway on Friday June 25.

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.

John Clancy wins annual Dylan Bias Memorial Race

The annual Dylan Bias Memorial race is one that area Super Stock drivers mark on their calendar for the chance to win the event named in honor of a young racer taken away too soon. With the family and friends of Dylan working hard to secure sponsors for the event, the drivers were rewarded for their efforts.

John Clancy, Jr. of California, MO has the track at Double X figured out as he won the annual event with an impressive run. The 20 lap main event for the super stocks began with a series of yellow flags for minor spins. Once the racing got underway, Derek Henson of Russellville would put his number 27D machine at the front with Clancy and Harlan Dowell right with him in second and third. This front trio would continually challenge each other, but Henson would not relinquish the top spot. Behind these three a second group of Cole Henson, Joe Miller and Steve Beach were waging a battle of their own for the 4 through 6 positions. The close racing would ultimately take its toll and an incident of too many cars in too little space would see Beach and Miller come out on the losing end on lap 12. The lengthy red flag allowed the remainder of the field to assess where they needed to be in the closing laps. On the restart Derek Henson maintained the point with Clancy and Dowell in second and third respectively. As the laps clicked by, Clancy was gaining on the leader and was able to move to the point and race to the checkered flag and the added purse for the event. Dowell would finish second with Derek Henson claiming third ahead of brother Cole Henson in fourth and Chris Brockway finishing fifth.

The heat races were claimed by Derek Henson and John Clancy.

Two 8 lap “Dashes for Cash” were also on the card as a winner takes all $1000 prize. Dash one of the top six card saw Harlan Dowell emerge victorious over Derek Henson and Clancy. Dash number two saw veteran racer Dale Berry pick up the paycheck over Brockway and Jim Kimbell. A big thanks to all of
