Race Results From Coast to Coast

 

MADDINGTON TOYOTA SPRINTCAR SERIES

Sunday, November 22, 2020

Jason Kendrick claimed the Scardifields Smash Repairs King of Wings at the Perth Motorplex on Saturday night from James Inglis and Callum Williamson.

Another big crowd was in the house to watch Kendrick claim his first King of Wings crown that was also round two of the Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series.

He started from P7 and early on dropped as low at ninth, but as the race went on, he moved forward with purpose.

Inglis started from P4 and the decision at the start of the night to play his Joker paid off as he doubled his feature race points.

Williamson, fresh from his wedding last Saturday night and honeymoon in WA’s South West during the week, started from P7 but was quickly into action in the main event and threatened to claim back-to-back wins, after he won the opening round of the series on October 31.

The 40-lap race had barely started when Daniel Harding, who started alongside polesitter Brad Maiolo on the front row, got the W41 crossed up in pits bend before recovering - only to spin out half a lap later.

He was lucky not to involve innocent cars on both occasions and was able to resume from the rear of the field.

By that stage it was obvious that Williamson was going to play an outcome in the final result, already tucking into second behind Brad Maiolo.

As Maiolo was heading into traffic with Williamson right on his tail, Troy Lawson pulled up without power and then officials made the early call to have the infield pitstop that was originally scheduled to be a bit later in the race.

While only six laps were in the books, Kris Coye, who earlier in the night claimed the Victory 1 Performance Quick Time award, had moved up to 10th after starting from P19.

Crews only made minor changes in the break, with Harding’s crew changing a rear tyre and electing to resume from the back of the field,

On the restart Brad Maiolo led away from Williamson, Inglis, Andrew Priolo, Jamie Maiolo, Kaiden Manders, Shaun Bradford, Kendrick, Dayne Kingshott and Coyle.

Williamson got down the inside of the leading Maiolo on lap eight and then Jamie Maiolo was involved in a spin, before heading infield.

By lap 10 Williamson was deep into heavy traffic, with Brad Maiolo and Andrew Priolo in hot pursuit.

Todd Davis spun but managed to keep the W63 going on lap 12 and then David Priolo, in his first race for more than three seasons, spun around in turn two, forcing a restart.

Brad Maiolo took the high line on the restart and pushed hard to out muscle Williamson and a lap later Kendrick put a move on Priolo for fourth, just as Matthew Cross spun in the first turn.

Maiolo was soon back into heavy traffic but carving his way through and was holding down a handy lead.

Kendrick got by Inglis on lap 19 and then a few laps later he was on the back of Williamson who was holding down second, but who was also on the back of Maiolo.

It was not long before Kendrick was in second and then he set sail for Maiolo before the field was forced to regroup after Kaiden Manders, who was also driving a speedcar on the night, spun out.

With 11 laps remaining Brad Maiolo led away Kendrick, Williamson, Inglis and Bradford.

Inglis slipped by Williamson with nine laps remaining and then the latter was under attack from Andrew Priolo.

Kendrick by this stage was pushing Maiolo hard who then spun and went to the rear for the next restart.

Harding spun out again with only a couple laps remaining and when they took off for the final time Inglis literally had nothing left in the tank, saying later that he was running out of fuel.

Shaun Bradford, who was back in the W57 for the first time in a while, was solid for his fourth placing after earlier starting the race from P11.

Coyle was impressive in the W79, starting from P19 and dicing his way through traffic in the feature to finish fifth.

It was a bitter-sweet result for Coyle who was crashed out of his heat race, forcing him to get into the main event from the Last Chance Qualifier.

David Priolo came from P14 to take a sixth and the new pairing of the second-generation racer and Diamond Bay Motorsport will take plenty of positives from this.

Taylor Milling started from P13 and again went about his business without fanfare, crossing the line in seventh.

Dayne Kingshott, in his second outing with Krikke Motorsport, posted another finish, this time in 8th after starting from P10.

Manders managed to claim 9th after starting from 5 and charging from the back after a spin.

Brad Maiolo salvaged some ground after a spin, finishing 10th.

Matthew Cross was very impressive on the night, firstly putting in a solid drive to claim the Last Chance Qualifier win from Cameron McKenzie.

He then started P17 in the main event and converted that to 11th.

Ben Butcher also chipped away at a good result in the final, starting P20 and coming home in 12th.

He was followed by McKenzie, Trevor Jolly and Jaydee Dack as the only other finishers.

Round 3 of the series will return to the Perth Motorplex on Saturday, December 5, for the WA Sprintcar Championship.

GRIMM CRUISES TO FIRST SOUTHERN SHOOTOUT WIN AT CITRUS COUNTY

FROM DAVID SINK

November 14, 2020 – Inverness, Florida – L.J. Grimm held off a late race challenge from 2017 series champion John Inman to win Saturday night’s Southern Sprint Car Shoutout Series event at Citrus County Speedway. It was Grimm’s first-ever series win.

Polesitter Mickey Kempgens got the jump and lead the opening lap while battling side-by-side with Shane Butler. The duo made contact exiting turn two to bring out the first caution of the evening on lap one. On the double-file restart, L.J. Grimm got the jump and assumed the point.

After the restart Butler went for a wild ride after his car made contact with another car while battling for position three-wide. Butler rode the wall before coming to a stop and bringing out the red flag. Butler was ok.

Over the next twenty-five laps, several battles for position were taking place throughout the field, resulting in hard racing, and contact on multiple occasions. Troy DeCaire and Joey Aguilar made contact on lap 11 entering turn 2 while battling for fourth to bring out the next caution. DeCaire rode up over the left front tire of Aguilar, spinning him around, and forcing DeCaire to restart from the tail of the field.

Grimm’s lead began to dwindle, and Inman had reeled him in by lap 27. The duo made contact attempting to get around a slower car. In the process, Inman’s front nose wing was torn off and virtually everyone of his brake rotors were glowing red. At that point it appeared Iman’s chances of winning were slim. But Inman hung with him the final 13 circuits and Grimm won by only 0.703 seconds over Inman. But Inman was later penalized.

Grimm, a local driver, was greeted to a loud applause by the huge crowd in victory lane. ”I was running a sportsman stock car here when I was 14. Then I moved up in the modifieds. My Dad raced here before that. I’ve been coming here for probably 20 years now, so it’s pretty special” explained Grim.

“We had Florida’s top prospects here tonight. This ranks up there with any of my wins. I’m proud of this one. I’m still new to sprint cars and hesitate with lapped cars because I don’t wanna jump a wheel and go for a ride, hurt myself, or another car. I might have hesitated too much because it gave Inman a chance late. But somebody was gonna have to wreck me to win tonight” concluded Grimm.

40-LAP FEATURE FINISH

1. L.J. Grimm (88
2. Joey Aguilar (110

35 Sprint Car Bandits Teams Close Season at 82 with Tankersley Winning Battle – and Day Winning War

Petty, TX (11/08/20) by DarinShort.com. A spectacular late-season weather day greeted fans and 35 series teams (from 5 states) as they converged upon 82 Speedway for the Sprint Car Bandits® series finale as a part of the 2nd Annual Paul Peters Memorial event. When adding the 82 Speedway division teams – who turned out in droves – the final car count total pushed to 159 entries.

The Sprint Car Bandits (SCB) would be the second division out all night long, and the field would be split into four 10-lap qualifying heat races. The top 16 in total finishing and passing points would be ushered directly to the 25-lap series finale, while the balance of the field would be broken into two B-feature events.

In the drivers meeting, it was expressed that with so many teams in attendance, that the series wanted to add more full-paying feature race starters in appreciation for the large turnout. So, a sponsor challenge was established to raise the purse in order to add two more starters.

And that’s exactly what happened.

In no time, Old School Racing (Bruce Griffith/Channin Tankersley), Al Mallory, Amber Stasa and DarinShort.com all put up $100 cash each and presented it to 82 Speedway owners Shelley and Tracy Peters, and instead of the track paying two B-feature non-qualifiers $100 each, they transferred that money towards the A-feature, and so each driver added to the field would receive full $300 to start money.

The top two heat race finishers would go directly to the $700 to win Cabinets by Tommy Dash for Cash. And what a jaw-droppingly wild 6-lapper would ensue.

The Dash would start off with Colby Estes, fresh off a trip down the aisle – wedding aisle, that is – would blast off to an impressive lead with Casey Burkham and Channin Tankersley exchanging sliders directly behind.

Midway through, while attempting to track down Estes, Burkham would get sucked into the slurpy upper ledge of the corner three cushion, while he got hard on the binders to avoid hitting the wall, it set off a chain reaction with Oklahoma’s Jase Randolph getting crossed up leaving the Cabinets by Tommy sponsored 99B of John Ricketts nowhere to go, clipping the front end of Jase’s car and sending Ricketts tumbling through the corner.

Ricketts would emerge from the mangled machine unscathed – but it would put an unplanned and early end to his night.

The Cabinets by Tommy Dash for Cash would resume with Colby Estes proving no one was a match for him and claiming the $700 winners share.

There was a Dash Challenge set up by Sherry and Tommy Bryant of Cabinets by Tommy beforehand, that if a front row driver chose to start at the tail, come back through the field and win, they would pay them an additional $300 – making the Dash worth $1,000 to win. No driver took up the Challenge, so that $300 would roll over to a very stout Hard Charger award in the A-feature.

We would like to thank Cabinets by Tommy, and its owners Sherry and Tommy Bryant for their strong passion for the sport and for their support of the Sprint Car Bandits series. If your residence or business is looking for quality cabinetry, please email them at TommysCabinets@Outlook.com for more information.

After a pair of www.FixYourGenerator.com B-features (again, with 3 cars advancing each instead of two), the feature line up would be set with Channin Tankersley amassing the most points after starting 8th in his heat race and vaulting his way through the field to a heat race win. Jase Randolph would be slated to start outside front row after an impressive heat race run after starting in 9th position. However Randolph would not be able to make repairs in time to make the call for the feature event, which was a big letdown for the team – and all of the instant fans he made from his heat race performance. However, Randolph would still be paid full start money without taking the green, as would Ricketts and Louisiana’s Koty Adam (engine woes after blistering the field in his heat race piloting the potent Ewell-owned sprinter based out of Forney).

One thing not mentioned at this point in the event recap was the Sprint Car Bandits season points championship war between Michael Day and Claud Estes III. Day would fire off from the 15th starting spot and Estes 10th row inside.

When the green flag would unfurl for the www.AirPerformanceDFW.com A-feature, the thundering field was utilizing low, middle and high grooves across the ‘Land of the XL’ with lap times in the 11-second bracket and Tankersley establishing the point position early on.

As Tankersley would encounter lapped traffic on lap 5, the caution lights flashed for a quick spin in corner three. The race would resume, and at that point a scary crash would take place on the backstretch that saw second place driver Willy Reed taking a very hard tumble.

Everyone took a big sigh of relief when Reed would emerge from his destroyed sprint car ending his spectacular run (in only his 2nd ever series start). We were thankful for Willy making the long haul from the Houston area to race with us and we look forward to him joining us again next season when his schedule allows.

Back under green, Tankersley would continue his assault on the 82 Speedway high banks with Casey Burkham and Chad Wilson in tow – setting up a classic dual that has become commonplace with the Sprint Car Bandits series.

With laps clicking off, Burkham would close within a one-car length striking distance on numerous occasions, with Tankersley finding a way to slip away in lapped traffic.

Meanwhile the series points war would rage on mid-field between Day and Estes. At one point, Estes would lead the pair, with Day moving back in front of Estes – and protecting his points lead.

Back up front to the lead pair, Tankersley continued to thread his way through lapped traffic, with Burkham still within striking distance, but laps would run out with Tankersley taking home the final checkers of the season and picking up a $2,000 winner’s share with Burkham about 15 car lengths behind.

Series invader Chase Brewer would advance from 14th to finish in the third position – after running a clean, solid race the entire event.

Christian Kinnison ended up coming from 16th to 4th when he took the checkers – which also made him the event’s Cabinets by Tommy Hard Charger – and collecting an additional $300 for his efforts.

Rounding out the top five, was an incredibly impressive run by 13-year-old Landon Thompson, piloting the Danny Merrell-owned #F41 sprinter.

Now that the battle has been fought, lets turn to the winner of the war.

Michael Day would finish ahead of Claud Estes III and collect his first-ever Series championship of any kind and established himself as the 2020 Sprint Car Bandits series champion! We’d like to congratulate their entire team on the hard-fought accomplishment, and joins the ranks of Michael Lang, Colby Estes and Will Eggimann as former champions.

We’d like to take this moment to thank all of the race track operators, track workers, series workers, sponsors, race fans, racing teams and safety crews that helped make this season the most successful ever – even in troubling times – and now our eyes turn to the 2021 season, where the Series has rebranded itself to the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series.

To view the recent announcement about this transition to open cubic inch engines for the 2021 season, click www.2021BOSS.com for the whole scoop, as our mission of providing a more sustainable form of sprint car racing for all teams continues.

More information will be coming in the weeks to follow, and the Series already has seven more $2,000 to win and $300 to start dates confirmed than there were in 2020. The base purse for next year is one in the same…at all tracks.

The Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series continues their alliance with the RaceSaver IMCA Texas Sprint Series and the intertwined schedules are far into the process with over 30 dates between the two already confirmed. Both collective schedules (that feature no events on top of each other, as in 2020) will be released in the weeks to come. Until then, we’d like to wish you and your loved ones the best upcoming Holiday Season ever and a spectacular Christmastime. Be watching for the latest updates on both series at www.2021BOSS.com and at www.raceTSS.com.

Here are the results from the www.AirPerformanceDFW.com Sprint Car Bandits feature event at 82 Speedway in Petty Texas on 11/7/20:

17 – Channin Tankersley 45B – Casey Burkham 25 – Chase Brewer 82C – Christian Kinnison F41 – Landon Thompson 2 – Michael Day 44 – Jason Howell 74E – Claud Estes III 67 – Rodney Henderson 1C – Brenham Crouch 72 – Chris Tarrant 6M – Blake Mallory 41 – Casey Merrell 00 – Jaden Brown 55 – Brad Queen 71 – Colby Estes 82 – Austin Saunders 20 – Chad Wilson 3W – Willy Reed 15 – Jase Randolph 19 – Koty Adams 99B – John Ricketts

MADDINGTON TOYOTA SPRINTCAR SERIES

Sunday, October 31, 2020

Just like he did last year, Callum Williamson won the opening round of the 2020-21 Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series at the Perth Motorplex on Saturday night.

In front of a very healthy crowd for the annual Shannons Powerpalooza that also featured a drag racing and burnout show, Williamson won the 30-lap feature race after starting from pole, from Jason Kendrick, who came from 10th, and Kaiden Manders, who started P7.

The 27-year-old hardly put a foot wrong in the Williamson Motorsport W3, being the second quickest in the Victory 1 Performance qualifying session with his 13.450 second flying lap only being bettered by Daniel Harding who circulated in 13.422 seconds in the W41.

He then won his heat race, setting up a front row start with two-time series champion Brad Maiolo.

Williamson will once again loom as one of the favourites for the series championship after he finished third overall last year behind three-time champion Kendrick and Mitchell Wormall.

After taking the win he advised he would not be part of the field for round two of the series that will be the time-honoured Scardifields Smash Repairs King of Wings on Saturday, November 14.

Williamson admitted that during the COVID-19 lockdown and not knowing what the speedway season would look like, he and his fiance planned their wedding for that day, but smirked, saying he would be keeping an eye on the results after the ceremony.

The feature race had not even formed up when Harding and Trevor Reynolds both headed to the infield with issues.

Williamson, Kris Coyle (who started P3) and Ryan Lancaster (from P5) were the early bolters at the start of the final, while Dayne Kingshott, in his first race with Krikke Motorsport, and Maiolo were locked in a good battle for fourth.

Kendrick was up to sixth after only a few laps were in the book and was looking ominous, while Williamson was into heavy lapped traffic by lap four.

Manders was racy in his first major race back for the J&S Drilling team after a year away from sprintcar racing last season, pulling a big wheelie on the main straight on lap six as Kendrick was up to fifth by lap eight

The field regrouped on lap nine when Maiolo spun around, seeing Williamson lead away from Coyle, Lancaster, Manders, Kendrick and Kingshott.

Kendrick showed his hand as they went into turn one, diving down low and pulling up into third, but the move, which involved contact with Lancaster was negated as James Inglis, Tom Callaghan and Andrew Priolo were involved in a midpack moment, putting the first two out and Priolo to the rear.

Next time around Kendrick went to fourth while Todd Davis performed a 360 in the 63 but was able to resume, albeit after losing some ground.

Williamson was again into heavy traffic and building up a good buffer with all eyes on Lancaster who got by Coyle on lap 13 and Kendrick also joined in the action as Ben Butcher spun around in pits bend, forcing another restart.

Shortly after Jaydee Dack lost control of the 67 on the main straight and Coyle had nowhere to go and collected the spinning car, ending his night and a podium placing, while Lancaster and Kendrick were lucky to squeeze through a gap.

Taylor Milling, who started from P14, and had dropped as low as 17th at one point, was on a mission and disposed of Kingshott for fifth at midrace distance.

By lap 19 Williamson was again back in heavy lapped traffic and able to maintain good car speed and distance to any challengers.

Manders snuck into third on lap 21 and a few laps later, Lancaster, who by this stage was holding down fifth, rode a wheel and hit the fence, ending what was up until that point was a great drive in the 20 - another case of back luck for the talented Dingo De Motorsport pilot.

On the restart, Kendrick, who was by now up to second, had nothing for Williamson who drove a faultless feature race and took the win by 0.926 of a second.

Milling finished fourth from Kingshott, Priolo (who charged from the back), Maiolo (who also raced back through the pack, Jason Pryde (who started P6), AJ Nash (who started 8th and finished 9th), Butcher (who started 13th and finished 10th), Cameron McKenzie (from 19th to 11th), Trevor Jolly (from 15 to 12), Todd Davis (from 25th to 13th), Matthew Cross (18 to 14), George Eaton (from 22 to 15) and Jack Williamson (from 24 to 16th.

There was drama even before qualifying was underway with contact between Jamie Oldfield, Dack and Coyle, with Oldfield unable to resume in qualifying while the others managed to set a qualifying lap.

Round two of the series will return to the Perth Motorplex in two weeks.

Back on top: Garrett Bard captures 2020 Keystone RaceSaver Challenge

Two weeks ago his car was junk, destroyed in a wicked crash at this same track, but after nonstop work by a family-and-friends team, Garrett Bard returned his mount to Port Royal Speedway Saturday and won the Ninth Annual Keystone RaceSaver Challenge, the signature event and season finale for the PA Sprint Series.

Overcoming a stout and nearly successful challenge from Ohio’s Justin Clark, Bard drove a still somewhat battered-looking CG Racing Engines/Barnett Self Storage #95 into victory lane and explained.

“When we put this car together, our goal was just to make the race, because we knew that would give us the Port Royal (points) title,” Bard said. “We knew our first laps in this car would be our time trial laps, and I had no idea what to expect, and I went into the first turn, and it didn’t even turn at all, and I was like this is completely different – the set-up that we had, that we put on this, wasn’t very close to our other car, so just to be standing here, after everything, it’s so awesome.”

“I know starting second really helped,” he continued. “My car felt really good. When I got to traffic I had different issues at different times – it seemed they wanted to race me a little harder than I’d thought. I couldn’t get on the brakes very well; it seemed almost like I had to pump them up – they weren’t doing too good.”

“Then we had that caution, and as soon as I let up, I saw Justin, and I knew he was right there. And then I looked at the scoreboard and it said lap 11, and I said, ‘Man, I could have sworn we were a lot farther along than this.’ And then we had a caution two laps later, and (I saw) it was counting down. That helped me feel a lot better, because I realized that I’d only get to traffic on about my last lap.”

Traffic certainly was not Bard’s friend Saturday. After taking the lead from fellow front-row starter Robbie Bartchy and building a healthy margin over first Christian Rumsey and then Clark, Bard began to lose that lead when he hit traffic just past lap 10, and by lap 14 Clark was in a position to challenge, but Jason Roush spun in turn two – just ahead of the leaders – and Bard once again had a clear track on the restart.

As the winner noted in victory lane, another caution two laps later gave him a chance to rebuild his lead, and traffic in the final two laps of the 25-lap event failed to provide Clark enough of an opportunity.

For Clark, the runner-up finish was vindication along with disappointment at not getting the win. Another trip to Pennsylvania earlier in the season had resulted in a second-place that was lost when the #78 failed post-race inspection.

Rumsey ran strong all race and came home third, ahead of Jared Zionkowski and 2019 IMCA/RaceSaver national champ and PASS champ Ken Duke Jr., who swapped the fourth spot back-and-forth in the final laps. Duke was the only frontrunner making successful use of the low groove on the daytime-then-evening “Speed Palace” surface.

Rounding out the top 10 were Devin Adams, Bartchy, Doug Dodson, Greg Dobrosky and 2019 Keystone winner “Nitro Nick” Sweigart.

Adams was the event’s Penns Valley Meat Market Hard Charger, coming from 16th starting spot to sixth.

The win was Bard’s 10th of the season with PASS, and he has multiple wins in both the Laurel Highlands Sprint Series and Allegheny Sprint Tour as well. He is now the 2020 IMCA/RaceSaver national champion, the Pennsylvania state champion, PASS champion and Port Royal champion – all in the driver from Wells Tannery’s first full season racing full-sized sprint cars.

Six heat races were run for the 55-car field, and they were won by Bartchy, Dodson, Rumsey, Domenic Melair; Bard and Jacob Gomola. Incredibly competitive B-mains were won by Sweigart (over 18 other cars) and Kassidy Kreitz (over 17).

In the first B-main, former Keystone winner Jake Waters lost a qualifying spot to engine trouble with two laps remaining, and the flames from his motor caused concern, because Waters was badly burned in an incident several years ago. Fortunately, he was not injured.

In the second B-main, veteran Ryan Lynn, fresh from being inducted into the new PA RaceSaver Hall of Fame, grabbed a qualifying spot at the checkered flag from hard-luck rookie Branstin Shue.

The most serious incident in the feature came on the initial start when Larry McVay got into the first-turn wall and then rolled his #83. He was not injured, either.

A long list of sponsors came on board for this year’s Keystone, providing awards for hard charger, hard luck and longest distanced traveled, plus most of the 25 feature laps had a sponsor – that money went into increasing the overall purse.

In a season shortened by COVID-19 restrictions, PASS still managed to run 27 features, with 14 drivers taking feature wins. Besides Bard, multiple winners were Sweigart and Dodson, with three wins each.

PASS will held an awards banquet in January. Plans already are underway for the 2021 schedule, which likely will begin in large March or April.

DECAIRE MAKES LATE RACE PASS TO WIN SHOWTIME SOUTHERN SPRINTS LOOT

October 24, 2020 – Pinellas Park. Florida – Troy DeCaire trailed LJ Grimm for most of Saturday night’s Southern Sprint Car Shootout Series event at Showtime Speedway. DeCaire took advantage of a lap 24 caution, and a double-file restart, to capture his fifth series victory of the season.

Daniel Miller got the night started off after setting quick time in qualifying with a lap of 12.532 seconds around the ¼ mile, slightly banked asphalt oval near St. Petersburg. After the invert, the front row was comprised of LJ Grimm on the pole and teammate Sport Allen on the outside in the bright yellow Taylor Andrews owned Hurricane Chassis cars. Grimm immediately got the jump and lead the first 13 circuits before the yellow waved for the stalled car of Joey Aguilar in turn two.

To the surprise of many, Grimm chose the outside lane for the double-file restart. Grimm once again took command of the event from his outside starting position. DeCaire trailed closely and was able to get alongside Grimm several times over the next 11 laps as Grimm’s machine began to drift high exciting turn 2. The final caution waved on lap 24.

Grimm once again chose the outside lane with DeCaire on the inside point. This time DeCaire took command of the event for the first time on the restart and never looked back, leading the final 20 circuits, and winning by a margin of 2.855 seconds in the 44-lap feature event over second place Grimm. John Inman rounded out the top 3.

Shane Butler, who was originally scheduled to compete in a Top Gun dirt event at Hendry County Motorsports Park before it was rained out, started last and finished an impressive fourth place. Butler had gotten as high as third place before making contact with another car and having to restart at the tail of the field late in the race.

With DeCaire’s fifth win, he now finds himself tied with Idaho’s Cory Lockwood for most pavement sprint car wins in the entire country in 2020. He appears to be in the driver’s seat to win the title for the second consecutive year with three more events left on the 2020 Southern Sprint Car Shootout Series calendar.

The Southern Sprint Car Shootout Series will be in action again November 14 at Citrus County Speedway in Inverness, Florida.

44-LAP FEATURE FINISH

1. Troy DeCaire (36) 2. LJ Grimm (88) 3. John Inman (59x) 4. Shane Butler (555) 5. Tommy Nichols (55) 6. Travis Bliemeister (4) 7. Mike Tharp (J1) 8. Gary Wiggins (44) 9. Daniel Miller (5) 10. Sport Allen (88a) 11. Joey Aguilar (11)

 

 

BLAIR BECOMES 1ST PACE RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR REPEAT WINNER OF 2020 WITH 3RD "STEEL CITY STAMPEDE" VICTORY AT LERNERVILLE; 1ST 2020 EQUIPMENT RENTAL OPTIONS RUSH SPRINT WIN FOR RUTH

October 16-17, 2020 (By Mike Leone)

(Sarver, PA)...The Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC once again participated in the "Steel City Stampede" finale at Lernerville Speedway this past weekend. The 12th edition saw three of RUSH's classes spotlighted with Max Blair capturing the Pace Late Model Touring Series victory, while Gale Ruth, Jr. copped the Equipment Rental Options Sprint Car Weekly Series special, and Chas Wolbert claimed the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Sportsman Modified Weekly Series special on Saturday night. In addition, Zach Kane closed out the 13-division racing program winning the RUSH Late Model Non-Qualifier.

For the first 10 years of the "Steel City Stampede", there had never been a repeat winner in the Crate Late Model division. Last year, Max Blair ended a seven-year drought between "Steel City Stampede" victories, and on Saturday night Blair led all 25 laps for his second consecutive event win and third of his career. Blair, who opened the 2020 Pace RUSH Late Model Touring Series with a victory at Lernerville in the $10,000 to-win "Bill Emig Memorial", ended the season by becoming the first repeat winner of 2020. Blair had to fend off challenges by Joe Martin on several late race restarts for the $2,000 victory.

"This place is tough on restarts especially when you don't race here all the time," acknowledged the 30-year-old Centerville, Pa. standout. "I didn't know which lane to protect. I tried the top, then I took the bottom and felt like I got a little better start. Joe (Martin) was trying to lag back and really get a run on me so I tried to lag back and whoever was behind me kind of picked me up a bit. I didn't take off as good and thought it might have lost me the race, but we got back out in front of him down here (turns one and two). Joe is one of my good friends. We help each other a lot when we race together so it's always fun to race with him."

After winning the dash on Friday night to earn the pole position, Blair took off in the lead at the start of the 25-lap feature over Tommy Schirnhofer, Jr. and Tour regulars Joe Martin, Ryan Frazee, and Michael Duritsky, Jr. On lap two, Martin put a big slide job on Schirnhofer in turn four to grab second. After falling out of the top five early, Colton Flinner raced into fourth on lap six then put a slider on Schirnhofer for third on lap eight. Flinner, who was driving one of his old cars recently purchased by Bob Bentz, closed in on Martin on lap nine; however, his shot at capturing the Touring Series Car Owner Championship for Bentz ended when he slipped over the cushion in turn four to bring out the caution with 13 laps scored.

Tour regular Logan Zarin had raced from seventh to third with five laps to go before getting tangled up in an accident. The man on the move was 14th starting Chad Homan. The Penfield, New York driver, who finished fifth in the 2019 Pace RUSH Weekly Series points, was making his 2020 RUSH debut and worked his way up to third by lap 21. Homan was right there in the battle for the lead as him and Martin were trying everything they could to overtake Blair.

Martin was all over Blair in the final four laps following the last restart, but just was unable to make the pass as Blair's Murphy's Logging/C&J Dairy/Previty's Auto Wrecking/Specialty Products/Moody & Son Welding/Upstate Auto-sponsored #111 would take the checkered flag first by a winning margin of only 0.690 of a second for his all-time leading 29th career RUSH Tour victory.

Martin's $1,000 runner-up effort was his best Tour finish of 2020 eclipsing his third on July 18 at Pittsburgh as he earned second place in the Tour Driver points. Homan's third place was his best Tour finish since a third place run more than two years ago on July 18, 2018 at Outlaw Speedway in his home state.

Jeremy Wonderling finished fourth to earn his third straight Tour title and continues to lead the National Weekly Series Championship, but it was an eventful weekend to say the least. Wonderling discovered motor issues on Friday and borrowed a motor from Tour regular Logan Zarin on Saturday. Wonderling went out and won the first B main and raced from 21st to battle for a top five before jumping the cushion and falling deep back through the field. Wonderling though wasn't done as he charged back up to fourth place to secure the Tour Owner Championship over Bentz. It was Wonderling's fourth fourth place finish in six starts as he failed to finish worse than sixth in any Tour race.

Jason Knowles, who had a great season at New York's Woodhull Raceway winning five features and the track championship, made his first Tour start of the 2020 season. The third place Weekly Series point man had a solid effort finishing fifth after starting 12th for the former longtime Tour regular. Schirnhofer dropped to sixth. Flinner worked his way back up to seventh. RUSH rookie Josh Ferry was eighth as he locked up third place in the Tour Driver points. Two other New York racers in Clayton Tarabori and Brian Knowles also made their first Tour starts of 2020 and finished ninth and tenth respectively.

Zach Kane had planned on competing in his own #10 car, but discovered a broken rear end prior to race day on Friday. Kane decided to hook up with Joe and Andrew Squatriglia and bring their #15X car to Lernerville on Saturday where Kane tagged the first B main and missed the transfer spot by one. That earned Kane the pole position for the Non-Qualifier, which he went out and dominated for the $200 victory. The 28-year-old Washington, Pa. driver became the 43rd different winner in 52 races run all-time. Fifth starting D.J. Nakutis was second. After spinning out on lap four, Jason Harmon came back to finish third in his first Tour start in more than two years. Denny Nakutis and Jacob Peterson were fourth and fifth.

Rookie racer Kassidy Kamicker finished sixth in the Non-Qualifier to earn the "Wheelman" Bonus Event Challenge Series Championship, worth $300. The 17-year-old Aliquippa, Pa. go-kart graduate also finished second in the "Futures Cup" points and 10th in Tour Driver points!

Frazee set fast time in FK Rod Ends "Shock the Clock" Qualifying for the first time in his career with a lap of 17.039 over the 33-car field on Friday night to earn $100. Picking up heat race wins on Friday night were Frazee, Flinner, Ferry, and Blair to add $25 from FK Rod Ends. Saturday's last chance B mains were copped by Wonderling and Khole Wanzer.

Making just his third start aboard the new #24 team owned by Rich and Melinda McConnell, Gale Ruth, Jr. went out and dominated the caution-free RUSH Sprint Car feature. Ruth led all 20 laps ending a 50-month plus winless drought as he earned the $800 Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series special victory in the 2020 finale. Ruth also became the third different "Steel City Stampede" winner in as many years.

"Man you don't know what this means to me," expressed the 42-year-old Pleasantville, Pa. driver. "The Lord has been so good to me this last year. I can't thank the McConnell Family enough to get an opportunity to drive a car like this; without them along with Brian Steinman and George Frederick none of this would be possible. It's amazing to be as blessed as I am to do this. It means a lot to win here, but it means so much to win for Rich (McConnell). Him and I have been friends for so long. This is just a dream come true to do this for him. I have to thank Don Blackshear for getting this motor put together so soon; it was a last minute deal and we weren't even supposed to race this year. I also want to thank my dad and everyone watching at home on DIRTVision- I really appreciate it."

While Ruth raced to the early lead, Brian Woodhall passed Zach Morrow for second on the opening lap. Brian Ruhlman then passed Morrow for third on lap three. Morrow stayed with Ruhlman and a great battle ensued for third, while Ruth began to check out from the field on lap five. By lap nine, Steve Pedley joined the battle for third. Ruhlman finally broke free of Morrow and Pedley as he closed in on Woodhall on lap 13. Ruhlman made the pass for second on lap 15.

By the time Ruhlman got to second, Ruth had a solid straightaway lead. Ruth went unchallenged in the Rustler Sales & Service-sponsored #24 taking his first win since August 15, 2018 by 4.515 seconds. Ruth's fourth career Lernerville win was the sixth of his RUSH career overall. Ruhlman has now finished runner-up at the "Steel City Stampede" in all three years for the RUSH Sprint Cars!

Woodhall, Morrow, and Pedley were third through fifth. Andy Feil went ninth to sixth as Brian Hartzell, Rick Regalski, Jr., Jack Sodeman, Jr., and rookie Brandon Shughart completed the top 10. Heat winners on Friday night over the 17-car field were Morrow and Ruhlman. Though he wasn't in competition for the final two races, Jeremy Weaver captured his first Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Championship driving the Cal and Ted Hull-owned #41.

Despite COVID-19 delaying the start, it's been a dream season for Chas Wolbert in the Pace RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. On Saturday night, Wolbert put the icing on the cake of his first Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly Series Championship by winning the $800 caution-free feature. Wolbert passed early leader Josh Deems on lap five and held off a valiant charge by two-time champion Garrett Krummert to become the amazing seventh different "Steel City Stampede" winner in as many years!

"This is awesome," expressed the 26-year-old Warren, Ohio racer. "My goal was obviously to win a championship and finish decent in this race. We've never won the 'Stampede'. We hit all of our goals tonight. We've been blessed to still race when we can with COVID. We've had a great car all year against great competition. I've been four years at this and have come up short every year by just a few points. I have great people around me. When you put yourself to something and get the reward back out of it- you can't complain at all."

Deems, who always excels at Lernerville, took off in the lead over Tony Tatgenhorst in search of his first win of 2020. Wolbert started fifth, was up to fourth after one lap, and then drove under Krummert and Tatgenhorst for second on lap two. Wolbert caught Deems on lap three and two laps later snuck under him racing off turn four for the lead.

Krummert, who was also the 2020 Lernerville Big-Block Modified Champion for the first time in his career, passed good friend, Tatgenhorst, for third on lap four then drove past Deems with the benefit of the lapped car of Joe Gibson going down the backstretch on lap 13. Wolbert was mired in lapped traffic allowing Krummert to close in on lap 16. Krummert was all over Wolbert in the final laps, but Wolbert's Alcon Mechanical/Dunkin Donuts of Warren, OH/C.T. Wolbert Trucking/Walters Building Co./Ohio Intra Express/Russ King Racing/Sawtelle Tree-sponsored #c3 held on by just 0.293 of a second for his 11th overall win of 2020 and 33rd of his career in the division.

Deems was a solid third over Tatgenhorst. Rob Kristyak, who won the Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series Championship finished fifth. Completing the top 10 were Clayton Deems, 14th starting Jacob Wolfe, Kole Holden, Jacob Jordan, and Steve Slater. Heat winners on Friday night were Krummert and Tatgenhorst.

Other than a pair of RUSH Late Model Weekly Series specials the next two weekends at Delaware International and Georgetown Speedways, the 2020 season for all of the RUSH Racing Series divisions are now completed. The 2020 RUSH Awards Banquet & Dinner will be on Saturday, January 17 at Gatherings Banquet & Event Center in Edinburg, Pa.

Mitchell Faccinto claims 60th running of the Johnny Key Classic in Watsonville Saturday

Watsonville, CA – October 18, 2020…Hanford, California’s Mitchell Faccinto had been oh-so-close to Ocean Sprints victory lane in the past, before he finally checked it off his list over the Summer. On Saturday night he returned and added another, only this time it was at the prestigious Johnny Key Classic, as he tallied one of the biggest victories of his career aboard the Western Metal Company No. 37 mount.

Faccinto earned $3,000 for winning the Winged 360 Sprint Car main event with an extra grand coming in courtesy of Williams Roofing. He also took home $300 for leading the third lap of the dash, courtesy of El Dorado Hills Landscape and Design.

Also picking up wins at the 60th running of the Key Classic were Cody Burke with the IMCA Modifieds, Darren Thomas with the IMCA Sport Mods, Joe Gallaher with the Hobby Stocks and Ryan McClelland with the Four Bangers. The closest race of the night came with the Hobbies, as Gallaher just nipped Sam Kennedy at the Ed Entz checkered flag.

“It feels great to win the Johnny Key Classic tonight,” Faccinto commented. “The track changed pretty quick and I wasn’t quite sure which line to run, but once Shane Golobic showed me his nose, I knew I had to step it up. We have been close to several wins here and it felt awesome to finally do it back in July. To get another victory at the Key this evening is special for the entire 37 team. I can’t thank the Greenburg family and everyone that helps us out enough. This is a night we won’t forget, that is for sure.”

A total of 103 race cars packed into the Ocean Speedway pit area for the 60th running of the Johnny Key Classic. Championship night will now invade the quarter-mile on Friday November 6th featuring the Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo, IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Mods, Hobby Stocks, Four Bangers and the Western Midgets. With the grandstands still closed all the action can be seen via FloRacing.

 

THE STEEL MILL: Record-High Car Count Passes Through Lernerville Speedway in Steel City Stampede Finale

SARVER, PA – Oct. 17, 2020 – A record 332 cars total packed the Lernerville Speedway pit area Saturday night for the annual DIRTcar Roundup Steel City Stampede and put on some of the best racing the event has seen in its 12-year history, all for the first time live on DIRTVision presented by Drydene.

Among those in Victory Lane were two first-time winners in DIRTcar competition, receiving the coveted genuine steel belt buckle trophy as victors in their respective divisions.

410 Sprint Cars
He claimed his fourth Lernerville Speedway track championship just a few weeks ago. Saturday night was just one more reason to celebrate for the team from Apollo, PA, and their driver, AJ Flick, who scored his second career Stampede victory in the 25-lap event.

Put simply, there was no stopping the Fence by Maintenance Service #2. After winning his Heat Race on Friday night to get into the redraw on Saturday, Flick jumped out to the lead from the outside pole in the Feature and simply checked out, opening up a near five-second lead over second-place Carl Bowser before the race’s only caution flag was displayed on Lap 20.

The yellow may have erased his big lead, but it just didn’t matter. Flick gassed it up on the restart and pulled away again, leading the field back around to the checkered flag unchallenged for his first Stampede finale win since 2016.

“It’s a real slick track, which we haven’t been accustomed to much this year,” Flick said of his drive in Victory Lane. “So, I just tossed something at it. We tossed some stuff at it yesterday; I still don’t think we were that good, but we were at least good enough to keep it up front.”

Feature Results (25 Laps) – 1. 2-AJ Flick; 2. 11-Carl Bowser; 3. 08-Dan Kuriger; 4. 42-Sye Lynch; 5. 13-Brandon Matus; 6. 12-Darin Gallagher; 7. 4J-John Garvin; 8. 23JR-Jack Sodeman Jr.; 9. 33-Brent Matus; 10. 23-Darren Pifer; 11. 23F-DJ Foose; 12. 38-Leyton Wagner; 13. 76-David Jones; 14. 80JR-Kyle Colwell; 15. 10J-CJ Jones; 16. 4K-William Kiley; 17. G1-Mike Miller; 18. 86-Michael Lutz Jr.; 19. 55-Matt Sherlock

DIRTcar Open Pro Stocks

The DIRTcar Open Pro Stocks opened the night’s Feature racing action with one memorable battle between Curt Bish and Joey Zambotti.

Back-and-forth the two polesitters raced, swapping the lead several times over the course of the caution-filled affair. Zambotti worked the low line while Bish hung it out up top, and the two put on one thrilling show as the laps clicked off.

Unfortunately for the leaders, several cars further back in the field had some recurring issues keeping things rolling under green, forcing numerous yellow flag displays in the first half of the race. This put the Feature event at its maximum time limit with only 12 circuits complete, and the race was made official at the final caution. Bish was the leader at the time and was declared the winner.

This was Bish’s first-ever triumph in the event, and he met a very excited crew in Victory Lane to help celebrate.

“That was a lot of fun,” Bish said, almost out of breath as he climbed from his car. “I commend [Zambotti] for racing me clean. I accidentally got into him one time coming down the backstretch and I apologize that. But it was a lot of fun, he’s a tough competitor; he’s got a lot of laps here.”

Feature Results (20 laps, 12 completed) – 1. 29-Curt Bish; 2. 948-Joey Zambotti; 3. 55-Chris Schneider; 4. 114-Daryl Charlier; 5. 45-Todd Weldon; 6. 27-Tyler Dietz; 7. 25-Brett McDonald; 8. 81-Mike Miller; 9. 72A-Mike Anderson; 10. 43JR-Blaze Myers; 11. 54J-Jimmy Combs; 12. 10-Nick Kocuba; 13. 24W-Erik Wise; 14. 19M-Ryan Maglione; 15. 22JR-Chase Lambert; 16. 28-Brandon Birdsall; 17. 3C-Barry Faris; 18. 310-Dale Tuche; 19. V2-Bob Connor; 20. 73-Jason Fosnaught; 21. 24-Tyler Wyant; 22. 5B-Jason Black; 23. 79-Tommy Dembowski; 24. 81D-Duke Davidson; 25. 36-AJ Poljak

DIRTcar Late Models

In what was likely the most exciting finish of the night, Jared Miley stole his second career Stampede victory in the final corners with a swift move to the inside of Dave Hess Jr. to score the $3,000 victory.

Hess and Max Blair had been locked in the thick of a battle for the lead by the time Miley entered the picture. Hess led the first 11 laps before giving way to Blair’s hard charge from 11th, and soon Miley was headed for the podium.

Blair held the lead on a Lap 20 restart as Hess made a power move to the outside to take the lead back. Now with Hess back in control, Miley zeroed-in on his targets as he moved to the third spot behind them.

A final caution flag was displayed with 23 laps in the books, setting the field up for a green-white-checkered finish. Miley got a great run off the bottom of Turn 2 on the restart and challenged Hess for the top spot as Blair tried to make it three-wide out of Turn 4. But on the white-flag lap, it came down to a big move by Miley in Turn 4 as Hess slipped over the edge of the banking, opening the door for Miley to drive right on by and collect his first belt buckle since 2010.

“That was just one of them deals where the early restart hurt me, lost a couple of spots,” Miley said in Victory Lane. “I knew the car was pretty good, not perfect, but that last restart – Max [Blair] missed the bottom a bit down here and I got under him. That last corner, or last two corners, we were all side-by-side, so everybody was just kinda going for it, and we were just in the right place at the right time.”

Feature Results (25 Laps) – 1. 10M-Jared Miley; 2. 44-Dave Hess Jr.; 3. 111-Max Blair; 4. 4S-David Scott; 5. 111L-Matt Lux; 6. 72-Mike Norris; 7. 48-Colton Flinner; 8. 30-Bryce Davis; 9. 40-Clinton Hersh; 10. 77-Tyler Dietz; 11. 12-Ryan Montgomery; 12. X3-Wyatt Scott; 13. 10-Gary Lyle; 14. 9T-Will Thomas; 15. 18-Mike Wonderling; 16. 01W-Khole Wanzer; 17. 29-Ken Schaltenbrand; 18. 81-Mike Miller; 19. 3-Kyle Scott; 20. 14R-Clay Ruffo; 21. 1C-Mike Pegher Jr.; 22. 4-Alex Ferree; 23. 9Y-Levi Yetter; 24. 49-Brian Ruhlman

DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds

Only a few days removed from the completion of DIRTcar OktoberFAST on the tracks of New York, and the Big-Blocks are still putting on great shows. This time, between father and son.

Rex King and his son Rex Jr. started the 25-lap Feature on the front row and combined for all 25 laps led. King jumped out to the early lead while King Jr. followed, eventually grabbing the lead down low on Lap 4.

King came back at him on the high side and swiped the lead back on Lap 9; King Jr. kept the low line rolling and took it back on Lap 12. Cooter kept his momentum up on the smooth, slick racing surface and held the lead until after a restart on Lap 21, where his father had it wound-up on the top side and skated on by for the lead and eventually the Feature win – his first belt buckle in event history.

“I noticed [about] 10 [laps or so] before the caution that I had a good run up on the top, and I thought, ‘that’s working pretty well, I better not show that off.’ So, I waited, and it worked out with four or five [laps] to go and I capitalized on it on the top,” King said of his decision to make the pass on the top late in the race.

Feature Results (25 Laps) – 1. 65-Rex King; 2. 165-Rex King Jr.; 3. 37MD-Jeremiah Shingledecker; 4. 29-Garrett Krummert; 5. 32-Jim Rasey; 6. 61-Dave Murdick; 7. 4M-Greg Martin; 8. 96-Mike Turner; 9. 55-Rob Kristyak; 10. 64-Rodney Belte; 11. 13-Rick Regalski; 12. 03-Mark Frankhouser; 13. 5-Brian Sadler; 14. 22-Kevin Long; 15. 3K-Shawn Kozar; 16. 72M-Jacob Mcelravy; 17. 35-Steve Slater; 18. 83-Brian Swartzlander; 19. 75-Jeff Miller

DIRTcar UMP Modifieds

For a man pulling triple-duty this weekend, Brian Ruhlman sure made his third career Stampede victory with the UMP Modifieds well worth watching.

Dan Davies jumped out to the early lead in the opening laps and held it through the halfway point while Ruhlman was making the pass for second on three-time race winner Jonathan Taylor. A caution flag was displayed on Lap 13, setting Ruhlman up for a shot at the lead on the restart.

Back up to the high side went Ruhlman as he got by Davies on the restart. Another caution flew not long after, presenting Davies with a chance to grab the lead back,

which he did down low on Lap 17.

Only .016 was the gap between the two at the stripe as they neared the final lap. Ruhlman stepped on it over the last few circuits and opened up a small gap, just enough to sneak by for his second consecutive UMP Modified victory in the event.

“With the momentum and [the fact that Davies] was down there, I figured this car is so drivable that you can just kinda pedal around top there and not have to worry about over-driving,” Ruhlman said of his car in Victory Lane.

Feature Results (20 Laps) – 1. 49-Brian Ruhlman; 2. 71D-Dan Davies; 3. 11M-Mike McGee; 4. 27R-Steve Rex; 5. 5-Jonathan Taylor; 6. 2J-Troy Johnson; 7. 92-Joel Watson; 8. 68-Randy Hall; 9. 71L-Dennis Lunger; 10. 7-Evan Taylor; 11. 73C-Bill Pluta Jr.; 12. 83-Brian Class; 13. 2G-Jesse Gould; 14. 3-Denny Nakutis; 15. 17G-Brandon Grossman; 16. 15-Rick Potter; 17. 12R-Ty Rhoades; 18. 11-Dale Charlier; 19. 6M-Carl McKinney

 

 

PURSLEY PERFECTS I-44 RIVERSIDE SPEEDWAY AT THE CHARLENE MEENTS MEMORIAL


Oklahoma City, OK. (10/17/2020) Winning his first career POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League Feature on Saturday night at I-44 Riverside Speedway for the 16th Annual Charlene Meents Memorial, Daison Pursley was undeniable in the 30-lap main event. Driving around his teammate, Jessie Love on lap 22, Pursley then fended off a few attacks from hard charging Buddy Kofoid as he held on for an impressive first-career victory aboard the Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports, Craftsman Tools, Bullet by Spike/Toyota powered No. 9

After an upset Friday for Pursley on, October 16th at I-44 Riverside Speedway, he came out of the gate even hungrier for a win. Purley took the win in the Advances Racing Suspensions heat race 3. Starting in the eight position for the 30-lap main event, he had his hands full.

Noah Gass of Mounds, OK. and Jessie Love of Redwood City, CA. brought the field to the green flag. Gass took off to the early lead as the field fought for positions behind him. A bobble by Gass caused Love to take over the lead on lap four. Pursley only four laps into the main event made his way to take over the fourth position.

Leader Love enters heavy lapped traffic and Pursley closed in on him to fight for the lead. Pursley steps out of line and tries the top side in turn 3&4 to make his move on Love. Pursley threw a slide job in 1&2 and made it stick, parsley presumed the lead on lap 22 and Love fell back to second. Hard charging teammate Buddy Kofoid gave it everything he had to catch Pursley in lapped traffic but was not successful.

In the end, Daison Pursley in his Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports, Craftsman Tools, Bullet by Spike/Toyota powered No. 9 earned his first POWRi career victory at I-44 Riverside Speedway for the 16th Annual Charlene Meents Memorial.

"This is pretty cool; I haven't won in a long time, so this is pretty amazing. I can't thank all these guys behind me enough, they gave me a great car tonight. Nonstop racing like that is pretty tough but this is what we come here for." Daison Pursley

"The past few weeks have been a little rough for us, but I think we kind of found some of our speed back. Daison did a really good job tonight." Buddy Kofoid

"It's tough when you're out front, you're not too sure where you're supposed to be. I could have done a better job search and I just got beat. I can't thank all these guys enough; I want to win one of these so bad." Jessie Love

Dodson doubles at BAPS

Another Central Pennsylvania sprint car driver lays claim to the nickname “Double D,” but Doug Dodson might now prefer “Double V,” anyway, after scoring a pair of PA Sprint Series feature victories Friday night at BAPS Motor Speedway.

The Middletown driver, who finished second in PASS points for 2020, captured the make-up feature rained out on August 1 and again on August 29, then pulled out all the stops for a dramatic late-race pass and victory in Friday’s regularly scheduled 20-lapper. The wins doubled the career total for Dodson, who also has experience in other sprint divisions and super sportsman cars.

In the make-up feature, Dodson’s PowerMist Racing Fuels/Crockett Log Homes/Fastener Specialties #20 dueled for the early lead with York Haven’s Dave Grube II, then passed Grube in traffic near the race’s mid-point. A subsequent caution gave Dodson a clear track, which he used to hold on for the win over Grube by 0.872 seconds.

Devin Adams finished third, followed by Ian Detweiler and Jaremi Hanson. Landon Price, Domenic Melair, “Nitro Nick” Sweigart, Kruz Kepner and John Walp completed the top 10.

Adams was the race’s hard charger, advancing eight positions from 11th starting spot to third, while Melair moved up seven, from 14th to seventh.

In the regular feature, Adams edged fellow front-row starter Derek Hauck for the early lead, but Dodson was the racer on the move, advancing from eighth starting spot to fourth in three laps and taking third on lap eight. Behind him, Dave Brown also was edging ahead through a series of torrid battles throughout the top 10.

On lap 16, Walp came to a stop in turn two, setting the stage for a four-lap dash to the finish. On lap 17, Dodson slipped past Hauck for second and set his sights on the leader; with two laps to go, the front two were running nose-to-tail.

Coming out of turn four for the white flag, Dodson swept high, got a great bite on the dust-free track, and made it past Adams. Holding onto that lead, he scored the win by 0.559 seconds.

Adams finished second, with Brown edging Hauck late for third and Price fifth, after a race-long battle with Kassidy Kreitz (both drivers wheeling cars bearing the number 69). Finishing the top 10 were Melair, Grube, Hanson and Sweigart.

Austin Reed, from nearby Etters and making his first PASS start, was the hard charger, moving up 10 spots from 24th to 14th. Winner Dodson advanced seven positions from eighth to first.

Dodson noted in victory lane that his team had to overcome an engine issue early in the evening that almost kept the car off the track, and he said that Adams’ team – which pits next to his – had been instrumental in helping deal with the problem.

“Part of me feels a little bad stealing the win from him,” Dodson said, “because if it wasn’t for them and their crew and his dad, we wouldn’t even be racing. In warm-ups we had an engine issue that we thought was going to end our night, and they jumped right in to help us out . . . really owe a lot to them for helping us get back on the track and allowing us to get these two wins.”

Heat races for the 32-car field were won by Melair, Hanson, Grube and Brown, with Rowdy Heffner taking the B-Main. There were no serious incidents in any of the events, which were part of BAPS’ two-night Sunoco/Insinger Nationals Fueled by Miller’s Race Parts.

With all but one of BAPS’ previous PASS/IMCA/RaceSaver features this year cancelled or postponed by COVID-19 restrictions or weather, Friday’s features also decided the track’s points champion, and Dodson’s pair of wins earned him that title as well.

The 2020 PASS season ends this coming weekend with the Ninth Annual Keystone RaceSaver Challenge race, “The Blue Collar Classic,” at Port Royal Speedway. More than 50 IMCA/RaceSaver teams from as many as eight states are expected to compete.

Racing is scheduled to begin at 3:00 p.m. Limited late models and 4-cylinder pure stocks also are on the racing card.

MCINTOSH STEALS LATE RACE WIN AT I-44 RIVERSIDE SPEEDWAY

Oklahoma City, OK. (10/16/2020) Cannon McIntosh of Bixby, OK. collects his third POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League win on the season at I-44 Riverside Speedway. Driver of the Keith Kunz /Curb-Agajanian Motorsports, Bullet/Toyota No. 71K passed teammate Daison Pursley for the lead with three laps left of the 30-lap feature event.

McIntosh started back in the 14th starting position for the 30-lap dash to the finish line at the famous 1/5-mile banked red clay oval. McIntosh immediately got to work and hunted down the cars ahead of him. He made his way into the top ten with only three laps in the books. McIntosh looked stout through the opening stages before a lap 17 caution for a stopped Brenham Crouch halting the action on the racetrack

Daison Pursley, continued to lead ahead of Sam Johnson running in second, Kaylee Bryson in third, Logan Seavey in fourth and Andrew Felker rounding out the top five. Pursley took to the top side and Johnson trolling the bottom. McIntosh still in the hunt for the top spot, and he cracks the top five on lap 19. Just as McIntosh and Bryson are trading slide jobs for the fourth position, the red flag waved for the #21K of Emilio Hoover as he got upside down in a big way in turn 1&2

8 laps remain of the 30-lap main event, Daison Pursley still the leader and Logan Seavey running in second. Sam Johnson in third, Kaylee Bryson in fourth and McIntosh rounded out the top five going back to green. Pursley got a good jump and took the top side and Seavey followed. McIntosh threw a slider on Johnson to take over the third position and hunts down the leaders. An upside-down Noah Gass in turn 1&2 caused the red flag to fly once again and for the field to stack back up.

Pursley lead the field back to the green, McIntosh immediately threw a slide job to take over the second position from Seavey. Cannon Slide Pursley for the lead but a yellow for Trey Gropp gave the lead back to Pursley.

On the restart, Pursley hit the cushion in 1&2 and upset the car letting McIntosh sneak by and run away with the win to capture his third POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League win on the 2020 season. Pursley finished in the second position and rounding out the podium was Sam Johnson finishing third.

"Car was awesome, we were not all that good in the heat but Kaz went to work and we were just really good in the feature. I got to thank Kaz and the whole team, Toyota and everyone that's behind me, and my family." Cannon McIntosh

"It was pretty good until the last couple laps, Cannons one of the best in the nation right now and it sucks running second to him but it's good for the KKM team to run one and two. I can't thank Toyota and Keith Kunz enough for putting me in this car and giving me the opportunity to do what I do best. Jarrett had the car rolling right there, I just made some rookie mistakes there towards the end." Daison Pursley finishing in the second position

"We unloaded for hot laps and we were pretty good, dad hit on set up. We were just pretty good." Sam Johnson as he brings home third

The POWRi Lucas Oil National & West Midget League will be back in action tomorrow, October 17th at I-44 Riverside Speedway for the final night of the POWRi 2020 season.

SEAVEY SOARS TO SPECTACULAR WIN FOR SOONER STATE 55

Tulsa, OK. (10/15/2020) Sutter, CA. native Logan Seavey starts off a three-day race weekend with a win at Port City Speedway. With an exciting mid-race rally to take the cake on the Sooner State 55, going top shelf around the 1/8-mile clay oval and trading slide jobs while rocketing to the lead on lap 18 to capture his second POWRi Lucas Oil National & West Midget League win of the year.

Cannon McIntosh of Bixby, OK. started on the pole of the 55-lap main event, Seavey to his outside on row number one. Teammate to McIntosh, Buddy Kofoid of Penngrove, CA. lined up behind him in the second row with the 28 of Ace McCarthy to his outside. McIntosh took to the bottom on the drop of the green flag while Seavey took to the top. After a batch of cautions, the field set in.

While McIntosh and Seavey were focused on each other, a new challenger came to life on the hunt as Ace McCarthy of Tahlequah, OK. rolled the low line and put his Dave Mac Motorsports No. 28 in contention for the lead.

A lap nine caution restacked the field and bunched them back up, but Seavey struggled with passing McIntosh and McCarthy sneaks by for the second spot. The intense fight for the position soon turned around as Seavey took the lead. The third-place runner, Christopher Bell brought out the yellow for a broken front end.

Going back green, Seavey lead, and McIntosh follows, Kofoid in third place. McCarthy and Jake Neuman round out your top five. Seavey still electing to take the top side and finding the sweet spot and built his momentum up before McIntosh threw every slide job in the books at him, but logan pulled away and flew around the top on lap 34.

Seavey caught the tail of the field and second place McCarthy and Neuman gained ground on the leader. Seavey finessed the lapped traffic and won the race to the drop of the checkered flag. Second place runner McCarthy got crossed up between a tractor tire and Nauman and lost his second-place position. Jake Neuman finished second and McIntosh brought it home third.

"It's tough, sometimes it looks easy, but you are holding your breath the whole time and the straightaways are narrow, so you don't know if they're going to hold their line or run you into the fence. Everybody did a good job tonight but cannon just got into a bad time in the lead." Commented Logan Seavey

After a misfortune in the past with being light at the scales, Seavey earned a well-deserved and hard-fought win to bring the 2020 season to an end.

The POWRi Lucas Oil National & West Midget League will resume tomorrow, October 16&17 at I-44 Riverside Speedway

Ohio Valley Speedway Beats Mother Nature to Close Season with Finale at the Valley

(Washington, WV) The Ohio Valley Speedway would play host to the Finale at the Valley on Saturday Night and as race fans and drivers began filling the speedway, Mother Nature would throw a curveball to all. Light rain would hit the track for an hour setting the show back some three hours. Track staff went to work and with a lot of hard work and much appreciated patience from race fans and racers were treated to a very fast racing surface and an excellent night of racing in all classes.

Also on the action packed card was a special night in Memory of Tiffany McPherson and a Suicide Awareness Fundraiser in appreciation of racer Mike McPherson and their family.

A lightning fast track would await the cars and stars of the OVSCA 410 Sprint Car Tour with Ricky Peterson charging from his sixth starting spot to capture the win and garner the WV weekend sweep. An excellent race would see the impressive Peterson slide job and exchange the lead multiple times with early race leader and eventual 3rd place finisher Jamie Myers before taking the checkered flag. Following Peterson across the stripe and into the Mister Bee Potato Chip Victory lane was previous OVSCA winner at the Valley Tyler Street, Jamie Myers, Jake Hesson and Jason Dolick would round out the top five.

In the Las Trancas Super Late Model feature it was Parkersburg, WV's Chris Carpenter blistering the field enroute to his first win of the 2020 season at the Valley. The talented racer left no doubt jumping out to the early lead ahead of father Freddie Carpenter blistering the tracks topside. Following Carpenter across the line was Andy Bond, Brandon Francis, Tyler Carpenter from the tail and Greg Gellner.

Following the talented racer across the line was current Steel Block Late Model Series point leader Zack Millbee, Troy Frazier, Macon, Georgia invader Parker Martin and Clint Keenan.

In the UMP Modified division it was Kyle Bond notching his second win of the season but it would not be easy for the Guysville, Ohio racer.

Bowers Jr., Grossenbacher, Nichols and Vrbka Earn Missouri Nationals Titles

By: Jacob Blair

OSBORN, Mo. – The 2nd Annual IMCA Missouri Nationals finale at US 36 Raceway crowned one back-to-back champion and three first time event winners.

The 30-lap IMCA Modified Main Event was led early by Josh Munsen before Chad Andersen made the early move to the front. Andersen set the pace for the first half of the race. While he controlled the field, all eyes were on Steven Bowers Jr. as he charged through the field.

After Saturday night trouble, Bowers had to come from the 11th starting position. Bowers methodically worked through the field while Andersen had a comfortable gap. However at the half way point of the race, Andersen began to fade, while Bowers was continuing to find more speed.

Once Bowers got to second, Andersen didn’t have much left to fend him off. Bowers took off to dominate the final ten laps and make the trip to Westfall GMC Victory Lane. The back-to-back wins at the Missouri Nationals was also good for a $2,000 payday. Andersen held on to finish second. Zach Nitsch impressed with a third place finish. Danny Holt and Mark Schafman completed the top five.

Race fans witnessed a dominating performance from Trevor Grossenbacher in the IMCA Sprint Cars as he swept the weekend, leading all 30 laps Saturday night. Toby Chapman kept him honest and made several attempts at the pass, but never could make the move. Chapman finished second with Stuart Snyder third. Jay Russell had issues Friday which put him deep in the Saturday starting field. He charged from an 11th place starting position to finish fourth. J.R. Topper completed the top five.

After winning on Friday, Mike Nichols brought the broom to Missouri as he led all 25 laps of the caution free IMCA Stock Car Main Event. The biggest concern for Nichols in completing the weekend sweep became heavy lapped traffic late in the race. However, he had enough of a gap and Nichols cruised to his first Missouri Nationals win. Blake Peeler finished second with a solid run. Chad Clancy finished third, with Randy Smith Jr. in fourth and JJ Baumli in fifth.

Derek Hall paced the opening laps of the IMCA Sport Mod Main Event. Early cautions slowed the race a few times, but with a long green flag run, Travis Peterson began working on Hall for the lead. While trying to make a move to the bottom, Adam Vrbka rolled the top and snuck by Peterson. Vrbka liked the high line and used it to make a move around Hall for the lead a few laps later. As the laps wound down, Vrbka continued to open the gap on Hall.

Vrbka remained out front when the checkered flew and won the Sport Mod portion of the Missouri Nationals. Hall finished second with Peterson third. Ben Stockton charged from 12th to finish fourth. Chris Wright moved through the field twice, once from an 11th place starting position and again after involvement in one of the early yellows to finish fifth.

Hauck grabs dramatic first win at Port 2020-10-11

Late in 2019, when Derek Hauck made his first PA Sprint Series start, he ended the night in 15th place . . . in a race won by Garrett Bard. Since then, Hauck has carved out a reputation is one of PASS’s up-and-coming chargers, but most races still ended with him – and the rest of the field – finishing behind Bard, who had won 9 of 22 races this year prior to Saturday’s feature at Port Royal Speedway.

Bard’s early misfortune Saturday ended the opportunity for an epic battle between the two young standouts, but Hauck left little doubt that he and his Fultz Auto Body of Lock Haven #2H would have been up to the task regardless, as the Allenwood racer bested a strong invitational field to win his first full-size sprint feature in a race run in support of the World of Outlaws Nittany Showdown.

He became the 13th different winner in PASS’s IMCA/RaceSaver competition this year.

“It’s awesome,” Hauck said in victory lane. “We’ve had good cars here and there throughout the year, but you know there’s a lot of competition . . . I’m just happy that everything came together here.”

With Bard and “Nitro Nick” Sweigart, the only drivers to win PASS features at Port Royal this year, starting on the front row, fans could have been forgiven for thinking nobody else would have a chance at having everything come together, but Hauck had other ideas.

Utilizing a move Bard has employed this year, he roared from his fourth starting spot into the lead with a pass on the cushion in turns one and two of the second lap. A caution quickly bunched the field, but Bard’s effort to regain the lead ended on lap four when he jumped the cushion in one/two and rode up the wall and into a vicious series of flips. The storied #95 sprinter was in pieces, but the driver walked away with a sore elbow.

Sweigart attempted to take up the challenge, but his night ended in the turns three/four wall on lap nine, and from that point on, it was Hauck’s race.

Meanwhile, a gaggle of racers continued a torrid fight for the remaining spots in the top five. Domenic Melair, another young gun seeking his first win, was up to second when a flat tire ended his night with three laps to go. That handed the spot to Devin Adams, and when Kruz Kepner’s spin brought out a final caution and set up a one-lap dash for the win, Adams pulled out all the stops.

But as Adams chased Hauck on the high line, Larry McVay charged to the inside to inch past Adams for second. Defending PASS and national IMCA/RaceSaver champion Ken Duke Jr. finished fourth, ahead of Christian Rumsey.

Completing the top ten were Dave Grube II, Jason Roush, Kassidy Kreitz, Landon Price and Doug Dodson.

Rumsey, who had failed to finish his heat race, rallied from 22nd starting position to his fifth-place finish and claimed the $100 Hard Charger Award from Penns Valley Meat Market. Dodson, who didn’t start his heat after damage from contact with a spinning car in warm-ups, also mounted a heroic charge from 19th to 10th, and Kassidy Kreitz matched that performance coming from 17th to 8th. Rookie Justin Mills, like Rumsey from Middletown, N.Y., was poised for a great finished after moving from 14th to 5th place, but engine woes ended his night early.

Roush’s 7th-place finish, a career best for the rookie from Thompsontown, was an emotional tribute to his car owner Larry Clegg, who passed away earlier in the week at age 82.

In surely one of the most unusual contingency awards ever presented, “The Poop Guy” who maintains the portable toilets at Port Royal, offered a $100 “Oh, poop, I finished last” award, which went to Garrett Bard. No mention was made of whether the recipient was required to use the presenter’s services.

Of course, Bard’s other consolations including the PASS and Pennsylvania State IMCA/RaceSaver sprint championships and in all likelihood the national IMCA/RaceSaver title as well.

Heat races for the 25-car field were won by Bard, McVay and Hauck. The race was an “invitational” for the top drivers in the Port’s PASS/IMCA/RaceSaver point standings, and drivers drew for starting spots in the heats. The top 12 heat finishers then re-drew for the feature.

Even though PASS’s own points season is over, Port Royal will continue to award points through the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge in two weeks. Bard holds a 145-point lead in that race over Dodson and Sweigart, who are tied for second.

This Friday PASS returns to BAPS Motor Speedway as a lead division for the first night of the 17th Annual Sunoco/Insinger Nationals Fueled by Miller’s Race Parts. The RaceSaver teams will run a full regular program, plus a make-up feature that was rained out on August 1. Although BAPS is normally a fixture on the PASS schedule, COVID-19 conflicts and weather have limited RaceSaver action to one full program this year (plus the preliminaries from the August 1 show), so Friday will determine the track’s 2020 champion for the division.

Tim Allison celebrates his 101st win a top his 360 Winged Sprint car. Emotional Podium Wraps Up Plymouth Speedway Season Allison, Barger and Hubbard collect final wins of the 2020 season

By Greg Hildebrand

PLYMOUTH—After a ten year drought Cridersville, Ohio racer Tim Allison got win number 101 Saturday evening at Plymouth Speedway. Allison held off Plymouth, Ind. native Zane Devault, to win the NRA 360 winged sprint car event. Devault started on the pole with Todd Heuerman on the front row alongside. Heuerman would get the early lead but would spin with Allison working to his inside, sending Heuerman to the rear. Allison would continue the lead for the remainder of the event. Devault was able to put together a charge late to challenge for the lead but would jump the cushion, gather it back and finish second in front of the hometown crowd. Burlington, Ontario racer Ryan Coniam would move up from his seventh place start to get the final spot on the podium. Hard Charger for the event was Shawn Dancer moving up eight places from 12 to finish fourth. 22 sprint cars took the green flag for the main event based on their finish from heat races. Heuerman, Chase Dunham and Devault were the heat winners. 21 Thunder Stocks lined up in the $1,000 to win season ending event with 2020 Austen Hubbard on the pole and Spencer Knight on his outside. Hubbard would get out to the early lead and hold off Knight to collect the big money. Lee Hall would work his way to third from his ninth place starting spot. Heat winners for the Thunder Stocks were Brandon Shelhart, Connor Minter and Spencer Knight. The other division racing Saturday night was the always exciting Super Stocks and this feature would be another action packed event with plenty of drama. Joe Spiewak would start on the pole with eventual third place finisher Skylar Antonelli alongside on the front row. David Short would start in third with John Rhoads behind Antonelli in fourth. These four would be joined soon with Chris Tippit in close often three wide racing. Rhoads would suffer a mechanical failure and would retire from the event and Spiewak would spin. Short would get spun while leading late giving Kyle Barger the opportunity to pick up the win from his sixth place start with RJ Akers in second and Antonelli finishing third. Saturday evening's event was the final event of the 2020 season and fans were able to get a look at the ongoing work on the track for the 2021 season. The smaller 600 mini-sprint track has had the banking in the turns increased and the straights lengthened. Plymouth Speedway thanks all the many fans that have attending the races during this difficult season with the many restrictions and appreciates everyones patience and cooperation. Look for an exciting 2021 schedule to be released later this winter at plymouthspeedway.net.

 

 

Michael Day Emerges as Winner in Wildly Unpredictable ‘Bandits Event at Monarch!

Wichita Falls, TX (10/11/20) by DarinShort.com. Vegas odds makers would go broke at Monarch Motor Speedway when the Sprint Car Bandits Series rolls into town. Every Sprint Car Bandits event over the years, thus far, has produced wildly unpredictable outcomes…and last night was no different.

An unseasonably warm yet pleasant fall day greeted fans and 27 Sprint Car Bandits teams to a beautifully prepared Monarch Motor Speedway located on the western side of Wichita Falls, TX.

It didn’t take long for the sign of what was to come, when in hot laps Mark Seiple would get crossed up going into corner three leaving Chance McCrary and Chris Tarrant with nowhere to go – and the result would leave McCrary with too much damage to compete in the evening’s event. Tarrant and Seiple would be able to continue on with the show.

In the www.AirPerformanceDFW.com first heat race would feature Casey Burkham advancing from a 5th place starting position, to win, on the hammer-down track surface. Chad Wilson would pass 6 cars to finish 3rd while Jason Howell would advance one spot to pick up the second-place honors.

Not to be outdone by all of the passing in the first heat race, OSR house car pilot Channin Tankersley would fire off in 7th place and blast his way through the field to take a commanding win in heat race two. Claud Estes III and Jerrad Warhurst would each advance one spot from their starting positions to fill out the rest of the podium positions.

In the www.FixYourGenerator.com heat race three, Lucas Boxwell would get into the corner three wall hard sending his car into a hard series of flips that ended in corner 4 and ending his night. Lucas would emerge from the car unscathed much to the relief of the Monarch crowd.

With the top two heat finishers each advancing to the $500 to win Cabinets by Tommy Dash for Cash, young Austin Saunders would square off with Channin Tankersley in the front row, with Jerrad Warhurst, Casey Burkham, Michael Day and Jason Howell rounding out the field. Tankersley would ride the high line to a commanding win in the six-lapper.

Special thanks to Cabinets by Tommy for adding $1,000 cash total into the night’s events. It is much appreciated by the series and all of the teams. If your business or residence is looking for quality cabinetry, email TommysCabinets@outlook.com for a great solution.

Due to the array of mechanical and crash woes going into the feature event, it was determined to start all 23 available remaining cars directly into the A-feature and skip the B-feature. Special thanks to Monarch Motor Speedway for adding to the feature event purse by agreeing to starting more cars in this event. (That was actually determined weeks ago, to give more teams a chance to make the feature event since many of the SCB teams have to travel a good distance to get to the track.)

Channin Tankersley would earn the Peaked Performer award provided by www.PeakedRoofing.com of Ft. Worth Texas by amassing the highest amount of finishing and passing points in the field…which lined him up on the pole of the 25-lapper to come.

As the green flag dropped, the thundering field would all complete the first lap with Channin Tankersley taking the lead on the wide, fast racing surface.

But then just as soon as everyone witnessing the event pushed the winning odds into Tankersley’s favor, 19-year-old Casey Burkham would blast by him on the high side entering corner three to take a 4-car lead in corner 4 on lap two.

The next few laps would go green while lead drivers would run precariously close to the wall all around the speedway. It was then that disaster would strike 2nd place running Tankersley when he would get into the corner 3 wall sending his car into the fence with a series of endo’s. Channin would quickly climb out of the car with the relieved Monarch fans giving him a huge round of applause for his efforts throughout the night.

On the restart, Burkham would resume his pace as leader with Chad Wilson running in second and Michael Day running in third.

The race would then go yellow three laps later when Collin Horner would get into the corner 3 wall just enough that it caused him to stop in corner 4.

On the next restart it quickly became evidenced that the track was starting to transition and Chad Wilson would run the middle line with Burkham still on the top side. The pair would race side-by-side until Wilson would wrestle the lead from Burkham. The lead trio of cars would then all transition to the middle groove until around lap 17 when a spinning car would bring out the yellow.

Wilson would charge off to the restart lead when all heck broke loose, when Burkham and Wilson would be sidelined from an array of issues of contact and flat tires.

Suddenly, that would leave Michael Day on the point – whom had been lurking in a solid 3rd place nearly the entire event. Jason Howell would take over 2nd place with Christian Kinnison and John Ricketts (up from 20th) would complete your top 4.

It was during this green flag run that Junior Jenkins night would end after getting into the frontstretch wall sending his #23 sprinter into a hard series of flips right in front of the horrified Monarch crowd. Moments later Junior would pop out of the car, as if he were just taking a Sunday drive, and the crowd erupted into applause to show their support of the popular Greenville, Texas veteran racer.

After the track was cleared, Day would resume the lead with Kinnison, Howell, Mundie and Ricketts rounding out the top 5. Day would extend his lead to 20 car lengths after six green flag laps when Hearne Texas veteran racer Larry Howery would get into the frontstretch wall sending his car into a tangle with the catch fence and bringing out the caution.

Since the race was now inside of three laps to go, the final restart would be lined up single file and the race would go green-white-checkers with Day taking his first win of the Sprint Car Bandits season, with a ‘Bandits career highest finish for Christian Kinnison finishing in 2nd, with Howell, Mundie and Ricketts rounding out the top 5.

The Sprint Car Bandits would also like to thank

Tammy Pack Sturgeon

We’d like to thank all of the teams, Monarch Motor Speedway, the race fans, track workers and our event sponsors for all coming together and enjoying a beautiful night for racing. The A-feature for the SCB was completed before 11:30pm with still very pleasant outdoor weather conditions.

Zach Blurton Claims Final United Rebel Sprint Series Race of Season at Salina Speedway, Series Championship

SALINA, Kansas (October 9, 2020) – Eleven cars were in action on Friday night at Salina Speedway with the Lucas Oil POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series Presented by Mel Hambelton Ford Racing. It was Quinter, Kansas’ Zach Blurton topping the field in the 25-lap feature event. Blurton was also crowned the 2020 URSS Champion for the fourth time in his career.

Jed Werner and Lincoln, Nebraska’s Jason Danley set the pace of Friday’s finale. Mayhem ensued on the start, with Danley spinning. On the restart JD Johnson took off with the early lead on lap one over Blurton. Blurton kept the heat turned on to get past Johnson on the second lap while Ty Williams moved forward from a fifth place starting position.

On lap 5, Williams maneuvered around Johnson to claim second and began to reel in Blurton for the lead. Lap six saw a 0.023-second difference between Blurton and Williams, but it was Blurton cranking up the wick in the following laps to regain some difference between he and Williams.

Jason Danley charged back to the front throughout the course of the feature event and was able to edge ahead of JD Johnson for third on lap 16. The remaining laps saw Blurton continuing to stretch the lead over Ty Williams, with Jason Danley, JD Johnson, and Jeff Stasa following. Blurton went on to win the 25-lap feature event and claimed his fourth United Rebel Sprint Series Championship.

Friday’s heat race victories were claimed by Zach Blurton and JD Johnson. The Keizer Aluminum Wheels hard-charger was awarded to Ty Williams, finishing second from the fifth place starting position.

MALCUIT, 2 FOR DROWN, BALDWIN & JAMES WINNERS OF WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY'S OHIO DIRT BLOWOUT

​Orrville, Ohio

​Friday & Saturday October 9 & 10, 2020

​By Mike Swanger

​ The racing season came to a close at Wayne County Speedway this week end with the running of the 8th annual Ohio Dirt Blowout with a total of eight different class' of cars during the two day event. Starting the Saturday night action were the Pine Tree Towing and Recovery Sprint Cars racing for the Rick Susong Memorial and at the drop of the green flag, Strasburg's Henry Malcuit out hustled dash winner R J Jacobs into turn one and would lead all the way for his first feature win aboard the Red Malcuit Inc., Malcuit Engines and McIntosh Oil ​#70. Jacobs would keep the pressure on Malcuit early on in the race as Chris Myers was right behind the two leaders. Jacobs, who was driving the Prosser owned #19, would try a slider in turn one and two but came up short of completing the pass for the lead on lap 15 and then three laps later, his night would end when he hit the guardrail in turn one and flip over the guardrail. he would walk away ok. This would put Myers in second with Tom Schinderle in third and after the restart, Schinderle's car really hooked up as he challenged Myers for second and with three laps to go secured second place from Myers but could not catch Malcuit in the last three circuits. Myers finished third with Dean Jacobs, who was in the Ray Miller owned #22 finished fourth with Troy Kingan, the heat winner, taking fifth.

Charlie Duncan would lead the opening lap of the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Model feature but as he came out of turn two on the second lap went off the back stretch and ended his race as pole sitter Dave Hornikel would take the lead back. He would open up about a 10 car length advantage early on as Ryan Markam, Brett Bee, Doug Drown, Justin Chance and Mitch Caskey all were racing tightly for position. Markham would bounce off the turn one guardrail and suffer a flat tire on lap nine. He would change tires and would work his way back through the field. Drown would take second on lap 13 and chase down Hornikel and finally passed Hornikel on lap 20 but Hornikel wasn't giving it up easy as he come back and lead laps 21 and 22 before Drown would take over for good aboard the B.A.'s Place Malcuit Tavern and Malcuit Engines #79. With two laps to go, Caskey powered past Hornikel and then on the last lap, Markham came back to finish third ahead of Hornikel as Cody Scott grabbed fifth place after starting 15th. Chance and Drown topped the heat races.

Randolph's Larry Baldwin would start outside front row of the McKenzie Concrete Super Stock feature and set the pace for the opening three laps as pole sitter Tyler Wiles would do a slider on Baldwin coming out of turn four on lap four to take the lead for that lap but Baldwin and his All Star Performance, Aamco and Friendship Acres Bar & Grill #7up would retake the point on the next circuit and then steadily pull away for the win. Doug Drown would take second on lap 6 but could not chase down Baldwin, who was the heat winner also. Wiles would end up third with Brandon Craver and Chase Alexander filling out the top five. It was also the last night of the Swanger Sports 'Summer Series' for the Super Stocks and with his 6th place finish in the feature, John Wilson claimed the four race championship with Chase Alexander second and Brandon Craver third.

The wildest feature of the week end was the Modified feature with Kyle Moore quickly taking the point on the opening lap from his fourth starting spot with outside pole starter Nathan Loney following Moore, who would start to open up a good size lead but on lap six would bounce off the guardrail in turn two and allow Loney and Doug Drown, who had moved into third on the fourth lap to close in. Things changed on the ninth circuit as the Lapped car of Scott Boyd spun in front of Loney and Drown. Loney would make hard contact with the spun car while Drown clipped Loney's car. Loney's car was hauled off ending his night while Drown was able to continue with his damaged car. As the action went back to green and both Moore and Drown driving cars that were damaged and hard to handle both were able to pull away from the rest of the field. With the laps clicking off, Drown was trying every groove to get around Moore for the lead but could not do it but as the two went down the backstretch for the last time, three lapped cars would come into play. Moore elected to go to the low groove while Drown went to the highside going into turn three and Moore would get hung up behind one of the lapped cars while Drown and his Custom Race Engines and SID Racing #5 was able to clear the slower cars and beat Moore back to the finish line by less than a car length as the Wooster driver would pick up his second win of the night. Colton Shaw made a last lap pass on Robbie Ledger for third as John Mollick filled out the top five. Heat winners were Moore, Drown, and D J Cline.

The JoyRide Transport Mini Stocks would be competing for the Sam Huffman Memorial and with thier feature wins on Friday night, Jordan James and Cody Newbury would start on the front row it would be all James all the way. Driving the Loudonville based, Ugly Duck Bar & Grill, Lorentz Lawn Care and Lochevale Farms #83 would lead all the way for the win. Newbury would drop out with mechanical issues on lap three as Colton St. John would pester James for the lead but never could swipe the point away. Bobby Searls would take third with Travis Hutton and Johnny Bruce Sr. rounding out the top five. Billy Parsons won the last chance race. Saturday night was also the last night of the Kirsch Properties 'Summer Series' for the Mini Stocks and with his win, Jordan James won the series with Doug Hensel second and Travis Hutton third.

In Friday nights action, Don Rutt scored his second career win in the McKenzie Concrete Super Stock as the Wooster driver and his D L Rutt Builders, The Rott Shop and the Shuttle Specialties #910 held off Brad Hensel, Chase Alexander, Tyler Wiles and Jordan James, winning the heat races were Brandon Craver and Alexander.

The JoyRide Transport Mini Stocks would run two features with the second feature starting with a complete invert of the finish from the first feature. James would win the first feature with Colton St John, Cody Newbury, Travis Hutton, who won the second last chance race, and Bobby Searls in the top five. Even though they started at the very back of the second feature, Newbury would claim the win in the second feature as St. John would finish second again and James would grab third as David Keagy and Anthony Collins would fill out the top five. Friday night heat winners were Dakota Graciani, Collins, Newbury and James with Jolene Voshel winning the first last chance race.

Tracy Fritter set the pace for the first four laps of the ModLite main but after that, Toboso's Jimmy Smith took over and drove away for his second win at 'Orrville's Historic Oval' this season. Driving the Phil Stalling Classic car # 280 was chased across the finish line by Fritter, Darrick Hubbard, Tim Callahan and Cody Stillion as Callahan and Smith grabbed the heat checkered flags.

Sunbury's Rob Stambaugh went flag to flag for the win in the Truck feature as the Russell Landscape Services, James Madison Insurance and All City Auto Wrecking, Rolly Heyder owned #10 was followed by heat winner Dewey Powell, Blake Heyder, Derek Cordia and Chad Squires.

Reutzel puts exclamation point on 3rd All Star title with Jim Ford Classic win at Fremont

 Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Aaron Reutzel put an exclamation point on his third consecutive Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobil 1 championship by leading all 40 laps at Fremont Speedway Saturday, Oct. 10 to score the $10,000 payday on the series’ season finale. Reutzel’s 11th All Star win of the season came during the 13th Annual Jim and Joanne Ford Classic on Kear’s Speed Shop Night to also wrap up the track’s racing for 2020.

It was Reutzel’s third career win at Fremont and came after an eighth place finish the previous night at the track. Reutzel made some very daring moves in lapped traffic and when the checkers flew he had a nearly seven second lead.

It was also a special night for Reutzel as his wife was able to attend and his son won his first go-kart race in Iowa Saturday night.

“Tonight just went our way. When you qualify good and get in the dash you’re able to try things. Last night the ruts never went away…it got real slick all around them but they never went away and I thought tonight was going to be a times two that. I told Dillon…let’s go for it, let’s live or die by the ruts so we made sure our car could drive through the ruts. I know there’s a few other cars here that get real tight if they look at any moisture they are no good. I figured if we could get good through the ruts we might be one of the only ones doing it. It played out good. It was a gamble but I wanted to make $10,000 on top of that $65,000 today. So we went for it and it played out good. This is three years in a row we ended the All Stars by winning so I wanted to keep that streak going as well,” said Reutzel beside his Fischer Body Shop/Folkens Brothers Trucking/XXX Chassis/Nattress Construction #67.

For the second straight night in a row Cole Duncan charged through the pack to a second place finish. He was the hard charger, coming from 18th starting position.

“Second sucks. Congrats to Reutzel and the Baughman guys. He was the class of the field, not only in this area but in the country for the last three years. That was a fun race. We just kept picking them off and driving as hard as I could…that’s my job. These guys behind me just don’t quit. We kind of looked down and out…we didn’t look very good in the heat race…we were just too tight. I let us down and let a spot go and it really docked us some starting spots there. We kept working on the car and we got there…almost. Second still sucks,” said Duncan.

Friday’s feature winner Cap Henry rounded out the podium as his car faded a little last after he ran second most of the feature event.

“About eight or nine to go the motor kind of laid down and I was just trying to ride it out and make sure it didn’t lose all the oil pressure. I was really good until that first caution…after that Aaron just kicked our asses the rest of the feature. I’m proud of my team…we had a really good year and this is my best Jim Ford finish,” said Henry.

Paul Weaver took the lead on the third lap of the 25-lap Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 A-main and drove away to his eighth victory of the year at Fremont to go with seven at Attica Raceway Park. It was Weaver’s 59th career victory at Fremont, placing him fifth on the track’s all-time win list.

“I want to thank DJ Foos and Mikey Sommers. I bought a bunch of tires (used) from them tonight and DJ said run this one. He won with it last week and now I know why he won with it,” said Weaver of his B&B Drain Service/Hampshire Racing Engines/M&L Excavating backed #1W.

Not to be outdone, but Shawn Valenti made it a sweep of the weekend in the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks, taking the lead on lap nine after a spirited battle with Jamie Miller and never looking back on route to his sixth victory of the year. It was Valenti’s 61st career win at Fremont Speedway, placing him third on the track’s all-time win list.

“Jim Ford Classic…he and his family are the ones that brought this track back to life and to win one of these races is very special,” said Valenti of his Craig Miller Trucking/KS Sales and Service/Best Performance Motorsports/A Plus Auto Center/Gutter Works/Roelle Fabrication/Scott’s Property Maintenance/Gressman Powersports backed #7B

Reutzel and Ian Madsen brought the field to green for the 40-lap All Star/FAST A-main with Reutzel jumping into a commanding lead over Madsen, Bill Balog, Shane Stewart, Henry and Paul McMahan. A multi-car crash on lap two took out several contenders including Madsen and Cory Eliason.

The brief stoppage didn’t slow Reutzel down as he drove away on the restart and hit lapped traffic by lap seven as Henry had worked his way into second. A caution on lap 12 wiped out the advantage for Reutzel with Henry, Hunter Schuerenberg, Stewart and Greg Wilso in tow. Meanwhile, Duncan had charged from 18th to eighth.

Reutzel’s lead was over three seconds at the half-way point but very heavy lapped traffic allowed Henry to close quickly with Schuerenberg, Greg Wilson and Duncan in pursuit. By lap 23, Henry had whittled Reutzel’s lead down to 1.8 seconds but once Reutzel disposed oa few lapped machines, he built his lead back up to five seconds with 10 laps to go.

Henry continued to ride along in second while Shuerenberg, Duncan and Wilson battled hard for third. Duncan was able to get around Henry on the white flag lap but Reutzel’s lead was insurmountable as he cruised to the win. Duncan, Henry, Schuerenberg and Wilson rounded out the top five.

Fremont Speedway was badass tonight. I thought it was fun…it was technical. It got wild for me in lapped traffic…there were guys racing all over the place. The lapped cars were real sportsmen. I know I was throwing some big sliders and I would lose a lot of momentum and they would get back to my inside but none of them raced me back or slid me back. It’s incredible what the Baughmans have put together for me and all the partners that have been involved from the beginning. It’s absolutely incredible what we have accomplished….I never would have dreamed it,” Reutzel said.

Chris Verda and Rich Farmer paced the field for the start of the 305 sprint A-main with Verda taking the lead over Weaver, Farmer, Steve Rando, Matt Foos and Tyler Shullick. Weaver built his advantage to nearly three seconds by lap seven as Rando, the previous week’s winner, grabbed the runner-up spot as Verda, Foos and Alvin Roepke battled for third.

A red on lap 12 kept the field close but when the green flew so did Weaver, pulling to a two second lead with six laps to go. Weaver cruised to the win over Rando, Foos, Roepke and Shullick.

Several cautions during the first half of the 20 lap dirt truck A-main kept leader Jaime Miller and Valenti close but Miller would exit the track to the pits on lap nine. Now in charge, Valenti pulled away while a tremendous battle ensued for second involving Kent Brewer, Keith Sorg and Cory McCaughey.

Valenti drove away to the win over Sorg who edged Brewer, McCaughey and Austin Black.

DECAIRE SPRINTS TO HARD FOUGHT SOUTHERN SPRINT CAR SHOOTOUT SERIES VICTORY

October 10, 2020 - Punta Gorda, Florida - Defending BG Products Southern Sprint Car Shootout Series champion Troy DeCaire won a hard fought event Saturday night at 417 Speedway, and in the process, snapped a seven month long winless streak. DeCaire fought off late race challenges from John Inman and Daniel Miller.

DeCaire started in the ninth starting position and wasted no time working his way to the front quickly once the green flag dropped. After only ten laps DeCaire quickly found himself in second place and began to set sail for early leader Shane Butler. DeCaire was able to power past Butler on lap 13 and appeared as if DeCaire would cruise the rest of the way. A furious battle for second place being waged by Miller, Inman, and Joey Aguilar. With ten laps to go Miller had caught DeCaire several times in lapped traffic but was unable to make a pass for the lead.

The final caution of the evening waved on lap 36 and gave Miller the break he was looking for and put him beside DeCaire on the double-file restart. When the green flag waved for the final time DeCaire took command of the event and left Miller and Inman to settle thebattle for second. The duo ran side-by-side before making slight contact with each other on lap 38 entering turn one. Inman then took over second position, leaving Miller to round out the top three in a strong performance for Miller.

In victory lane a happy DeCaire was relieved to get the monkey off his back and find victory lane for the first time in SSSS competition since March despite getting tied up with lapped cars late in the race." Sometimes being the first guy to them (lapped cars) isn't always a benefit. It was no fault of their own. They were just racing hard. I was a little too patient with lapped cars and looked up and saw he (Miller) was behind me. On that restart with four to go I was ok with it because in clean air my car was so good. I felt at that point it was my race to loose. We've had four or five seconds since my last win. We haven't had a bad year but I really wanted this win bad tonight. I tied Dave Steele for the most wins in series history and that means a lot because he was a hero of mine" concluded DeCaire.

With DeCaire's fourth win of the season, he has created a five way tie between Kody Swanson, Jimmy McCune, John Inman, Cory Lockwood, and himself for most pavement sprint cat wins in the country in 2020.

Henry continues hot season with Fremont All Star win

Saturday, Oct. 10, 2020

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – While most will want to forget 2020, Cap Henry will remember it as the best season he has ever had in his sprint car driving career.

The Republic, Ohio driver used lapped traffic to take the lead on lap 27 of the 35 lap A-main Friday, Oct. 9 at Fremont Speedway and drove to his third victory of the season with the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions to open the 13th Annual Jim and Joanne Ford Classic on All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads Night. The A-main went non-stop and featured tremendous battles throughout the field.

It was Henry’s second win of the season at “The Track That Action Built and his 12th overall victory of 2020. Henry now has four career All Star wins and 12 career Fremont Speedway victories.

“It’s been a real good year for us. These guys just keep working on this thing getting it better and better. Zack (Myers) came to me right before I was jumping into the car and said I want to make some last minute changes and I’m real confident in his decision making so go for it. I think he made all the right ones. I’m so proud of this race team,” said Henry beside his Dragon’s Milk White/Beer Barrel Bourbon/Pro Auto Wraps/Big D’s Pizza/Geck Electric/FK Rod Ends backed machine.

“Ian (Madsen) kind of pulled away from us there and I knew as we got into traffic I had to start moving around to see what we could do. Turn two was the difference. Ian was committed to what he had to do and we were able to pull off and kind of run down…I feel that was the difference,” added Henry.

The event is co-sanctioned with the Ti22 Performance FAST Series and defending series champion Cole Duncan battled among the top three the entire feature but settled for second when the checkers flew.

“Congrats to Cap and those guys…they have one hell of a year going. I felt like for two thirds of that race we had the best race car and then I just really struggled with lapped cars. I’m not sure what we need to do different there other than a bonsai move but that’s not really my style. I’ll remember that and shove it in there with the right rear. That was a fun race track,” said Duncan beside his Ohio Heating/Helms Construction/Motor City/Scott Gressman/Factory Kahne.

Cory Eliason also battled among the top four the entire race and ended up rounding out the podium.

“I’m just happy…the last couple of times we’ve been to Fremont I haven’t been pleased at all. To get a podium out of it hopefully we learned something for tomorrow,” said Eliason of his Rudeen Racing/Hagar Realty/Rayce Rudeen Foundation/Fatheadz Eyewear/Elliotts Custom Trailers backed #26.

Fremont, Ohio’s Matt Foos took the lead of the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 A-main on lap 10 and built a substantial lead. But, the only caution of the race fell on lap 18, wiping out a five second lead for Foos who then had 2020 track champion Paul Weaver on his bumper. Foos hit his marks perfectly and drove to his second win of the year at Fremont; the ninth overall victory of his career at the track.

“I kind of figured we had a big lead before that caution because I saw my guys jumping around by the fence. I knew somebody was going to be there and I looked up and saw the 1W (Paul Weaver)…I’ve been getting my ass kicked by him all year and that makes you better. You are only as good as who you race against. This whole team is just jiving this year and I can’t wait to get to 2021,” said Foos beside his Speed Shark Graphics/818 Club/DR’s Powerlab/Kear’s Speed Shop/Berryman Racing Shocks backed #12.

Shawn Valenti, Fremont’s 2020 track champion in the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks, took the lead on lap seven and drove to his fifth feature win of the season. It was the 60th of his career at the track and placed him in a tie with John Ivy for fourth on the all-time win list.

“To get win #60 is pretty amazing to do it this season and pick up a third championship last week…hats off to my crew. I have to thank Adam and Christy Jones of A Plus Auto Center for everything they do, Gutter Works, Best Performance Motorsports, Scott’s Property Maintenance, Roelle Fabrication and Gressman Powersports,” said Valenti.

For the 126th appearance of the All Stars at Fremont, Ian Madsen and Max Stambaugh brought the field to green with Madsen taking the point over Henry, Stambaugh, Shane Stewart, Eliason, Craig Mintz and Cole Duncan. Eliason moved into third on lap five as the leaders began to inch closer to lapped traffic.

Madsen found the back of the pack by lap eight and Henry began to close wile Eliason and Duncan battled hard for third. Madsen sliced his way through traffic and built a 1.6 second lead by lap 12 with Henry, Eliason, Duncan, Stewart, Stambaugh and Mintz in pursuit.

At the half-way point Duncan had begun to close on Madsen and Henry but Eliason mounted a challenge as well, regaining the third spot by lap 19. Duncan returned the favor on lap 22 and closed on Henry as they battled in heavy lapped traffic.

Henry pounced on lap 27, grabbing the lead and steadily pulled away. Madsen soon found his hands full with Duncan who drove into second on lap 30. With two laps to go Henry had two lapped machines separating him from Duncan. Henry drove to the win over Duncan. Eliason, Madsen and Stewart.

Mike Keegan drove into the lead of the 25 lap 305 sprint feature with Dustin Stroup and Foos in pursuit. Foos took second on lap five and quickly closed on Keegan, driving into the top spot on lap 10 with Keegan, Stroup and Weaver giving chase.

Foos hit lapped traffic at the half-way point with Keegan, Stroup and Weaver staying close. Foos checked out, building a five second lead that quickly evaporated when the caution flew on lap 18. On the restart Foos had to hold off Weaver with Keegan, last week’s winner Steve Rando and Stroup in pursuit.

Foos ran the final seven laps to perfection and took the win over Weaver, Rando, Keegan, and Stroup.

Early cautions keep the field close in the dirt truck A-main with Andy Keegan leading the first six laps before Valenti drove to the point. Valenti pulled away for the win while Keegan won an entertaining battle for the runner-up spot over Kent Brewer, Keith Sorg and Dustin Keegan.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action to wrap up the 2020 season with the All Stars/FAST teams competing for $10,000 to win Saturday, Oct. 10. The 305 sprints and dirt trucks will again be in action.

With 18 laps remaining, McCarthy sat in the third position and threw a massive slide job and take over the second position from Sarff. Zach Daum sat behind in fourth and Tucker Klaasmeyer made his way into the fifth position from ninth. Mitchell Davis had a hiccup in turn 3&4, gathered himself back up and catches the cushion on the entrance of turn one and found himself upside down and brought out the red flag.

On the restart with a little under halfway to go, teammates Clinton Boyles, and Chase McDermand running fifth and sixth get together and cause a yellow. Klaasmeyer electing to go to the bottom, made his way up to third place and set his sights on McCarthy and Meseraull. Klaasmeyer reeled in McCarthy stole second place on lap 22. With only 3 laps remaining, Dalton Camfield got upside down and the red flag got waved.

Thomas Meseraull lead the field to a green-white-checkered finish. Meseraull walked away as Klaasmeyer and McCarthy battled it out for the runner up position.

Tucker Klaasmeyer finished second, Ace McCarthy in third, fourth went to Trey Gropp and rounding out your top five, Karter Sarff.

"The last time we were here, I felt like we had a car to, and I got caught up in some racing deals. I'm just excited to park it here up on the front stretch. Hats off to everybody who comes out and supports us for the last race of the year. We love you guys, hope to see you next year." Thomas Meseraull

"That was a blast. I wish I would have been a little better at the end, but I just couldn't slow myself down enough to stay good on the bottom." Commented second place finisher, Tucker Klaasmeyer

"I honestly really didn't even have anything for TMEZ, he was ripping the top. My only hope was to get him on a restart. Third place finisher, Ace McCarthy.

Shane Golobic, Dan Jinkerson, Ryan Peter and Hunter Kinney pick up Tribute to Mac Tiner wins

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – October 3, 2020…Fremont’s Shane Golobic has won some big races in his career at Placerville Speedway and added another on Saturday by turning in a dominant drive to capture the $5,094 grand prize at the “Tribute to Mac Tiner.”

Sharing victory lane with Golobic at the event were Dan Jinkerson with the Ltd. Late Models, Ryan Peter with the Pure Stocks and Hunter Kinney with the BCRA Midget Lites. When all was said and done a total of 95 race cars packed the Placerville pit area to help honor the late Mac Tiner Sr.

The final Winged 360 Sprint Car event of the season came to the line with Lincoln’s Blake Carrick and Fremont’s Shane Golobic sharing the front row. The duo battled for the top-spot with Golobic grabbing command, prior to a red flag period for Michael Ing, who emerged from his car okay. Just after that a dual flip between Kyle Hirst and Landon Hurst brought out another red. Fortunately both drivers also climbed out okay.

A long green flag run was then seen with Golobic holding a narrow advantage over Carrick, who tried his best to find a way by. That was until the two-time Trophy Cup champ found the bottom side of the speedway to his liking and began to check out from the field through lapped traffic. One final red flag waved when Kaleb Montgomery parked on the high-side of turn four and emerged from his car on fire. After a few tense moments the fire was put out and luckily Montgomery reported that he was okay after the race. A tip of the cap should also be given to Mike Henry who flung into action and helped assist the fire crew.

When going back green for the last time all eyes were on Roseville’s Colby Copeland, who put on a show rocketing around the Placerville cushion, going from fifth to second in just a handful of laps. By that point however, Golobic was gone and went on to take the checkered flag for his ninth career Winged 360 victory at the track, placing him in a tie for 18th with Steven Tiner and Joey Magaruh. Copeland’s strong drive from the 11th starting spot ended in second with Blake Carrick, J.J. Hickle and Tanner Carrick rounding out the top-five.

Completing the top-10 were Andy Forsberg, 16th starter Justyn Cox, Kalib Henry, Willie Croft and Ryan Robinson. The night’s B-main was captured by Chase Majdic, while the C-main went to CJ Humphreys. The five 10-lap heat races were claimed by J.J. Hickle, Shane Golobic, Tanner Carrick, Ryan Robinson and Kyle Hirst. Willie Croft began the night by setting fast time in the 58-car field with a time of 10.694 and went home with $694 for his efforts.

Tim Kaeding was the Hard Charger in the feature going from 24th to 14th and earned an extra $594.

The Ltd. Late Model main event was all about Diamond Springs racer Dan Jinkerson. The “Diamond Dynamite” blasted to the lead and held command every step of the way to earn his second career Ltd. Late Model victory at the Placerville Speedway. It was a nice way for Jinkerson to finish off his first campaign in the division with the Lightfoot Automotive team. It was a sweep of the top-two positions for the Lightfoot team, as Tom Tilford came home in the runner up spot. Matt Davis, Rod Oliver and Tyler Lightfoot completed the top-five. Dan Brown Jr. captured the lone heat race held during the night.

The final Pure Stock feature of the season saw Rio Linda’s Ryan Peter jump into the top-spot and feel pressure from Nick Baldwin over the early stages. The pair put on a show racing closely together until Peter began to gap the field aboard his No. 83 mount. Dan Jinkerson and Kevin Jinkerson were also making moves attempting to climb their way forward. At the checkered flag however, it was Peter picking up the big victory for his second career Pure Stock win at the Placerville Speedway. Baldwin, Dan Jinkerson, Kevin Jinkerson and Clarence Holbrook completed the top-five. Heat race triumphs went to Kevin Hess and Nick Baldwin.

The BCRA Midget Lites held their final Winged event of the season and saw a dominant drive by Citrus Heights racer Hunter Kinney, who distanced himself from the field and picked up his first win of the year at the track. Eric Greco brought home a solid second place finish, followed by a very fast Terry Bergstrom, Danika Jo Parker and Scott Kinney in the top-five. Aiden Lange, Craig Holsted, Brandon Leedy, Harley Aguilera and Cody Meyer completed the top-10. The Midget Lites return next without the wings and will also compete at the November running of the Hangtown 100.

The Placerville Speedway is right back at it next Saturday October 10th with a full night of traditional action during an event dubbed as “Prospector Pandemonium.” In competition will be the USAC West Coast Wingless 360 Sprint Cars, the USAC Western States/ BCRA Midgets and Wingless BCRA Midget Lites.

Virginia Sprint Series Laurel Highlands Sprint Series IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Series

The Greater Cumberland Raceway, Maryland Saturday October 3rd 2020 Mikell McGee Cumberland Raceway High Flyer The Greater Cumberland Raceway was in fine and fast form on a cool Saturday night for the only visit of the year for the IMCA RaceSaver sprint cars and Mikell McGee showed he was the fastest and speed to the win. Heats for the twenty cars on hand were won by Scott Lutz and Larry McVay. The feature was paced to green by Todd Lynn and Mikell McGee with McGee staying on the high line going to the lead and bringing Josh Spicer with him as Todd Lynn quickly was showing a problem that would eventually have him park the car. Lap after lap McGee showed his line was the best as he would sometimes get a few car lengths of cushion but stalled cars would bring out the yellow tightening the field. Every restart McGee would keep his line and be leading off turn two as the challengers would try to get under him but he would inch away. After the final caution last dash to the finish saw Spicer staying tight to the bumper of McGee but it would fall short as McGee would flash under the waving checkered flag first. At the line in was Mikell McGee, Josh Spicer, Reed Thompson, Larry McVay, Ron Aurand, Robbie Bartchy, Ryan Lynn, Scott Lutz, Matt Klien, Jerald Harris, Billy Hubbard, Daren Bolac, Erin Statler, Mike Leraas, Ray Sheetz, Bill Rice, Chris Ware, Mike Keeton, Todd Lynn and George Streaker.

Six place starter Eric Rudolph would make his way up to the front of the pack quickly battling Cartwright high and low every lap for that lead spot. Then on the white flag lap Rudolph pulled up next to Cartwright going down into turn 1 but Cartwright went low in turn one while Rudolph went high and lost momentum but then coming out of 4 went as low as he could but Cartwright held the momentum and won his first ever Mercer checker by a tire over the 17 time 2020 modified winner.
“ I could hear him (Rudolph) coming.. I held my line and we did all we could do ...we’ve been coming here for quite a few years and finished 2nd and some 3rds and we finally got our first win!” Rudolph would finish 2nd for the 2nd night in a row, local JR McGinley would finish 3rd, 6 time Mercer track champ Jimmy Holden 4th and Tony Pangrazio 5th.

The Pro Stock feature was another nailbiter as several drivers contested for the lead. Tim Bish Who has won many little guy nationals events and who almost won last night before breaking would take off in the lead from his second starting position. As what happened last night happened again tonight as Bish would drift high up in turn number 2 allowing cars to pass him on the inside. Jamie Colwell took the lead coming out to turn number two and was pulling away from the field but he went high as well as Jamie Barber took the lead. Bish would come back from his mishap and be all over the back bumper of Barber as Barber went low out of turn 4 and held off Bish for his first Mercer checker and $1500. “It’s been year long work .. it all paid off.. Colwell was running good he was tough..I live near thunder mountain and we’ve been following the penn/Ohio series.. I thought we may be done after tonight but now after 2 wins we may not be !!” Bish would settle for 2nd,Bobby Whitling 3rd, Jamie Colwell 4th, and John Boardman 5th.

2019 Racesaver 305 sprint champ Jake Gomola would start on the pole and never be challenged as he went on to win his first ever little guys nationals feature and his third win of the season. A hard crash between third running Jamie Colwell and rookie Joe Campbell coming out of turn 4 would stop the action but both drivers were OK. “It’s been awhile since I’ve been in victory lane but we’ve been trying to get back on top .. I kinda like the rough stuff more than smooth..it’s a lot more dicey getting through lapped traffic when they are bouncing around ..we’ve been getting more new drivers and they see how affordable this division is and it’s a nice mixture!”
Logan McCandless finished a best 2nd, Greg Dobrosky was 3rd, Steve Cousins 4th , and Rob Felix 5th.

In the FASTRAK modified feature Brandon Ritchey has finished no worse than 4th in all the features this season..but never won.. until tonight as he picked up his first career modified feature win. Preston Cope would battle Ritchey early on until Garrett Krummert moved up from his 6th starting spot getting around Kole Holden and Cope and sent his sights on Ritchey. A few late cautions would challenge Ritchey but he held his ground and held off Krummert for his 1st ever Modified win in the crates. “I had to be patient and calm and stay cool I wanted to do it for my crew.. they bust their butt the whole year with me ..we finished no worse than fourth other than last night and just couldn’t get the job done but now we finally did it!! I want to dedicate the win to them guys I won a little guy nationals in a mini stock but this is above and beyond!! any time you can visit Mercer victory Lane is always incredible!” Krummert finished 2nd, Ayden Cipriano a career best 3rd, Cole Holden 4th and Preston Cope 5th.

In the first ever appearance of the crate non wing sprints 4 time sprint track champ Jack Sodeman Jr hopped into Bob Williams’ sprint and was looking for his 2nd win of the weekend after winning at Lernerville the night before . However something broke in the drive line ending his night . Non wing veteran Gale Ruth Jr would inherit the lead and would appear to be on his way to a win but Brandon Blackshear would hound Ruth lap after lap and coming out of turn 4 Blackshear would pull alongside and defeated Ruth by .004 of a second to capture his 1st crate non wing sprint feature. “It was a real good race I was worried about getting into the fence and I haven’t won in 2 years.. I knew it was close!! This class is so affordable after racing with the Economods I’m racing with Sodeman and Ruth so it makes the win extra special.” Rush would be 2nd, Nolan Groves 3rd, Rick Regalski 4th and Shawn Smith 5th.

Phil King accomplished something not done in the mini stocks little guy nationals since Pete Blaczak in 2011... and that was winning both nights collecting $800 from both features. King started on the outside and was never threatened winning easily by 7 seconds. “I am astonished winning back to back .. it was on a rail!! I couldn’t steer it I can’t feel my arms and I just let her eat. Last year I was given a car to run and it was an old cavalier to have fun and I spent all winter building this and a lot of time and dedication and I’m just super happy!” Andy Thompson would get 2nd, Brandon Huffman 3rd, Patrick Lane 4th, and Justin Bailey 5th.

Roman Jones became the 3rd family member to win a feature at Mercer following his sister Vivian and father Rod. Jacob Isenhart would lead the field around until Jones would take the lead and win by 6 seconds. “I just wanted to come out and make up for last night ..I tried to race as hard as I could..the goal is to win more and my plan is run 305 sprints next year!” Jason Darocha was 2nd, Nathaniel Bale 3rd, Jacob Isenhart 4th, and Darryl Hoon 5th.

The Economod finale had 9 time 2020 winner Nate Young on the pole. Young would survive numerous yellows and would hold off Garrett Calvert for his 2nd consecutive Little guy win. “I love this race track I wish we could get here more often.. it’s been an awesome year!! I want to thank my whole family I’m going to try to race more and maybe even down in Kentucky in 3 weeks this is number 10 tonight “ Calvert would finish 2nd, Mitchell Wright 3rd, Gary Olsen 4th, and Jason Brightman 5th.

This concluded the 2020 season at Michales Mercer Raceway! There will be an informal christmas party in December and we will kick off the 2021 season in March!!!

Hafertepe Reaches STN Pinnacle with $10,041 Score!

Lonnie Wheatley, LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (October 3, 2020) – Sam Hafertepe, Jr., is now officially entrenched as a part of Short Track Nationals lore.

Since making his first STN appearance in 2004, the Sunnyvale, TX, native has flirted with event glory on a number of occasions with three preliminary feature wins and three previous runner-up finishes in the championship finale.

Hafertepe, Jr., finally reached the top step of the STN podium by winning Saturday night’s 33rd Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires finale at the high-banked, I-30 Speedway clay oval.

After battling past Roger Crockett midway through the 30-lapper, Hafertepe, Jr., held the point the rest of the way aboard the Hills Racing Townline Variety/Heidbreider No. 15h Sprint Car to take the $10,041 win ahead of Derek Hagar and Crockett as he became the 19th different STN champion.

“This is a race that I’ve been wanting to win for so long, it’s eluded us forever,” Hafertepe, Jr., commented in victory lane. “It feels like we’ve always had the best car here and just never have been able to get it done.”

After getting collected a wild heat race crash on Friday night, Hafertepe, Jr., and crew put together another car only to have the pole starter move the track and run over his front end approaching the green flag in Saturday night’s heat race action.

It lit a fire that wasn’t going to be extinguished on this night, as Hafertepe, Jr., rallied from the tail of the heat race after that incident to win it and then secured a position in the Mike Pack Building Materials Pole Dash for Cash by climbing from fifth to third in his qualifier.

After winning that Dash to earn the Pole, it was fellow front row starter Roger Crockett battling into the lead at the outset and pacing the early going.

But as the leaders approached traffic ten laps into the non-stop affair, Hafertepe, Jr., closed the gap and began pressuring for the point. Hafertepe, Jr., slipped underneath Crockett on the 15th lap and edged into the lead entering turn one.

Crockett stayed right on his tailtank and nearly slipped back underneath exiting turn two on the 21st circuit only to have Hafertepe, Jr., fend off the challenge and then slip away in the final handful of circuits after putting a lapped car between himself and his chasers.

“I felt like Roger had the car to beat there early, but I knew if lapped traffic got in his way that we would be able to make a run,” Hafertepe, Jr., explained. “Then I almost gave it away and I appreciate Roger for racing me clean.”

With Hafertepe, Jr., racing to the checkered flag, Friday night winner Derek Hagar made a late pass to capture runner-up honors with Crockett settling for the show position in his first STN championship feature start.

“We were good in three and four, but we were way too free in one and two,” Hagar commented afterward. “It’s tough to pace the race when you don’t know how many laps you’ve ran. We brought it home second. That’s nothing to hang our heads about, but we’re gonna get one of these things one day.”

Crockett explained that, “I felt like Sam and I were equal. I just didn’t get the job done in traffic, I lost second because I went for the win there. At least I can go home and sleep well knowing I gave it all I had to get a victory.”

Vying to become the first to claim three STN crowns in a row, Blake Hahn settled for fourth while Canada’s Dylan Westbrook cracked the top five for the first time in his third consecutive STN championship feature start.

Brandon Anderson ranked as the top STN rookie with a sixth-place finish with fellow event rookie and Washington-state teen Devon Borden in seventh. John Carney II turned in the feature’s top passing performance by climbing from 15th to eighth with Scott Bogucki and Hayden Martin completing the top ten.

In addition to Crockett, Anderson, Borden and Martin other drivers making their first STN championship feature start included Garet Williamson (15th), Alex Hill (16th), Monty Ferriera (17th) and Kyle Clark (20th).

At the other end of the spectrum, Crawley made an STN record 23rd career championship feature start, crossing the stripe in 12th.

With 76 cars filling the pit area for the Saturday night finale, heat race wins were captured by Hagar, Bogucki, Clark, Hafertepe, Jr., Williamson, Kyle Bellm, Joey Schmidt, Jordon Mallett and Marshall Skinner with Hagar, Westbrook, Seth Bergman and Anderson topping the Qualifying races.

Connore Leoffler and Brandon Hanks topped the “C” Mains with Bogucki and Crawley winning the “B” Mains.

Ernie Ainsworth earned an extra $400 by winning the six-lap Lanny Edwards “Red Shirt Dash” for the top three non-transfers from each of the “C” Mains.

A total of 79 competitors took in the 33rd Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires with more than $70,000 in winnings distributed over the course of the two-day event.

Foos gets 2nd Fremont 410 win; Dussel claims track title; Rando dominates 305s with Weaver earning championship

Saturday, Oct. 3, 2020

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – It was déjà vu for DJ Foos at Fremont Speedway Saturday, Oct. 3. On championship night in 2019, the Fremont, Ohio driver won the feature but fell two points short of claiming the track championship. Fast forward to championship night in 2020. Foos and Nate Dussel came into the night tied atop the track’s 410 sprint point standings. Foos took the lead from Dussel with five laps to go and drove to his second feature win of the season on Fremont Federal Credit Union Night. But Dussel’s qualifying effort and heat race finish coupled with his second place feature finish made him the 2020 Fremont Speedway track champion….by ONE POINT! It was Foos’ 17th career win at the track.

“Last year it was two points so I guess we’re getting closer. Getting points for qualifying and heat races makes this whole deal so tough. Hats off to the Dussel family. They are a good family doing stuff together and we can all look at them and know we can come together as a family and win races and championships. They are very deserving. Nate and I started racing 305s together in 2008…not saying we are rivals but we’ve chased each other up through here. It’s pretty cool for the both of us to be up here. I’m happy for my Burmeister team. I had my hands full for a little bit there. I wouldn’t have caught Nate if it wasn’t for traffic. It was every man for himself tonight. I’m very grateful to be able to drive this car. Hopefully I get to win one of these championships one of these days. I grew up coming here every weekend and I just want to win a Fremont championship,” said Foos beside his Crown Battery,Vantage Branding, Kistler Engines, CR Juices, Berryman Shocks, Burmeister Trophy, The Jet Express, Minor Customs, Napa of Bryan, KS Sales & Service, Keizer Wheels, Dave Story Equipment backed #16.

“For the most part the lapped cars wanted to make that exciting. Man the top was so dominant when they entered the middle and slide to the cushion it was just like sitting and waiting. Congrats to DJ, he put it on us and no one gave him anything. This is a dream come true. My first championship (in 305s) came kind of the same way. I have a ton of respect for DJ and I knew when he got in that 16 it was going to be real tough because they will be consistent. To beat them shows how great of a season we put together. I feel like we were one of the fastest cars every single night here regardless of the track conditions. Hopefully both of us can kick some ass at the Jim Ford Classic next weekend,” said Dussel.

Lindsey, Ohio’s Steve Rando dominated the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 A-main, lapping up to the fifth place car on route to his first win of the season and 12th of his career at the track.

“That’s crazy. I knew I was passing cars and it felt like they were sitting still. I was struggling a little at the end. We started the night in the heat race and it was going pretty good and the last lap entered turn one and blew the radiator out into the motor and cracked the pulleys and everything in the front. Luckily we got it fixed and found out we were starting second and here we are. I want to thank my mom and dad, my girlfriend Olive, Scott that helps me…if it weren’t for him I wouldn’t be able to do this…he’s here every race with me, my Uncle Leroy, Chris, Melissa and all my sponsors,” said Rando beside his Davis Fabricators, North coast Asphalt, North Coast Sealing, Parkmont Retirement Solutions, Garza Construction, Tony and Dawn, Vastag Racing, Attitudes Hair Salon, Loadmaster Trailers, Gressman Powersports backed #19R.

All Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver had to do was start the A-main Saturday to claim the 2020 Fremont Speedway track title for the 305 sprints. Weaver drove from his 7th starting spot to finish second in the A-main, claiming his third track title. Weaver also won the Attica Raceway Park track title and the NAPA of Bryan Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales championship in 2020.

“When you get older you appreciate track championships more. You don’t know when the last one will be. It’s been a long time since the last championship,” said Weaver who was the track’s 2005 and 2006 champion.

Toledo, Ohio’s Cory McCaughey took the lead with 10 laps to go and drove to his fifth feature win of the season and of his career at Fremont Speedway in the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks. Fostoria’s Shawn Valenti drove from 11th to a second place finish to wrap up his third track title in the division.

“To be on the same win list with everyone that ever raced here is unbelievable. It’s all these people beside me here that makes this happen,” said McCaughey beside his KC Engineering, Ron Miller Race Cars, DAS Motors #911.

For Valenti it’s his second straight track title in the dirt trucks and the third in the past seven years.

“That was a little to close but hats off to Cory and that team. They’ve had a great year and are great competitors and will be a team to deal with for years to come. I want to thank the Babcocks for putting me in this thing and everyone who helps out,” said Valenti.

Cap Henry and Dussel brought the field to green for the 30-lap Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint feature with Dussel grabbing the lead over Henry, Byron Reed, Foos, TJ Michael, Stuart Brubaker and Craig Mintz. Foos drove into third on lap three. A caution on lap five kept Dussel out of heavy lapped traffic.

Dussel began to pull away when the green appeared while Henry and Foos battled for second with Mintz moving into fourth. By lap 13 Dussel’s lead was 3.7 seconds and he had put two lapped cars between himself and Foos while Mintz moved into fourth just as the caution flew, once again getting Dussel out of very heavy lapped traffic.

On the restart Dussel again built up a sizeable lead, growing it to two seconds over Foos with 12 laps to go. Three laps later and Dussel found himself in very heavy traffic and Foos began to close quickly with Mintz, Henry, Reed, Trey Jacobs and Dean Jacobs (up from 16th) in pursuit.

Dussel slipped over the cushion in turn four with five laps to go while battling in traffic and Foos pounced to take the lead. Foos drove to the victory over Dussel, Mintz, Henry and Reed.

In the 25-lap 305 A-main, rookie Logan Riehl and Rando brought the field to green with Rando quickly taking control. Rando set a torrid pace, lapping cars by the fifth circuit and building a four second lead. Meanwhile seventh starter Weaver had moved into second with Kyle Capodice, Alvin Roepke and Matt Foos giving chase.

With no cautions to slow his pace, Rando lapped cars quickly and when the checkers flew he was on the rear bumper of the fourth place car!. Weaver, Roepke, Foos and Capodice.

Cautions plagued the opening few laps of the dirt truck feature but pole-sitter Dustin Keegan took charge early over Brad Mitten, Curt Inks, Kent Brewer, McCaughey and Paul Brown. McCaughey was able to work into second on lap five with Brewer, Mitten, Austin Black, Jamie Miller and Valenti giving chase.

McCaughey drove to Keegan’s outside on lap 10 to take the top spot while Black, Valenti and Brewer battled for third. Following a caution for debris with four laps to go, Valenti was able to take second but McCaughey made no mistakes and drove to the win over Valenti, Keegan, Black and Brewer.

Fremont Speedway will close it’s season Friday and Saturday, Oct. 9 and 10 as the Ti22 FAST and Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions co-sanction the 13th Annual Jim and Joanne Ford Classic. The 410 sprints battle for $5,000 to win Friday and $10,000 to win Saturday. The 305 sprints and dirt trucks are on the racing card both nights. There will be a band playing in the campground following Saturday’s races and Saturday afternoon race teams and campers are asked to bring goodies for a Halloween camp trick-or-treat.

Darland Wins Sprint Feature; Adams Nabs Title;In First Half of ‘Fall Festival of Speed’ Friday at Gas City I-69 Speedway

GAS CITY, Ind., Oct. 3 – “The People’s Champion,” Dave Darland of Atlanta, Ind., won the 25-lap non-wing 410 sprint car feature Friday night as Gas City I-69 Speedway kicked off its two-day “Fall Festival of Speed” with “Open Wheel Mania.”

By finishing eighth in the feature Max Adams of Loomis, Calif., unofficially won the track’s sprint car championship for 2020.

Friday’s jam-packed card featured five different divisions of open-wheel race cars. Another big winner on Friday night was Ethan Barrow of Bloomington, Ind., who won the 25-lap IMCA winged 305 sprint car feature. Adam Taylor of DeMotte, Ind. was victorious in the 25-lap USAC regional midget main event. Justin Harper of Denver, Ind. took the checkered flag first in the 600cc non-wing micro-sprint feature. Daniel Ingram of Indianapolis won the 15-lap American Vintage Sprint Car Association (AVSCA) feature to round out the program.

The action continues tonight (Saturday) with the “Tin Top Spectacular” featuring four divisions of stock cars to close the track’s 2020 season.

Nick Bilbee of Indianapolis started on the pole in the 20-car field of non-wing 410 sprint cars and led the first 13 laps, primarily using the low line. Darland started seventh and concentrated on the high line around the quarter-mile dirt oval.

It only took five laps for Darland to crack the top five. He made a spectacular move by Adams and Robert Ballou of Tipton, Ind. on the backstretch working lap seven to vault into third place, trailing only Bilbee and Scotty Weir of Marion, Ind.

Darland passed Weir for second on lap13, right before Harley Burns of Brazil, Ind. brought out the first of two cautions in the race when he stopped on the frontstretch with a broken driveline.

After the restart Darland used the high line coming off Turn 4 to charge by Bilbee for the lead, and he was never again headed.

Ballou passed Bilbee to the outside as they were going through Turn 2 on lap 19 to snag second place. The final yellow flew with five laps to go after Cole Ketcham of Muncie, Ind. and Matt Goodnight of Winchester, Ind. got together in Turn 2.

Shane Cottle of Kansas, Ill. passed Bilbee for third with two laps remaining and finished in that position. Bilbee hung on for fourth and Weir finished fifth.

Adams ran in sixth towards the end but had a moment on the backstretch on lap 23 that allowed Kevin Thomas Jr. of Cullman, Ala., and Tye Mihocko of Phoenix, Ariz. to get by.

Adams’ eighth-place finish was good enough for him to secure the track championship, however. He had to finish 12th or better to beat J.J. Hughes of Indianapolis, who was leading the point standings going into Friday’s show but had difficulties during the preliminaries. Although the track officials will tabulate the official results in the coming days, unofficially Adams earned 983 points to Hughes’ 968. It was a big improvement for both of them, as neither finished in the top five in last year’s championship.

Darland was the ninth different regular sprint feature winner at Gas City this year. He drove his own DRC, which is powered by a Claxton-prepped engine. The team is sponsored by Curb Records, MVT and Claxton Racing Engines. Brian Cripe of Frankfort, Ind. is the winning chief mechanic.

A.J. and Matt Brookmyer sweetened the pot with $100 to the feature’s hard charger, who was Adam Byrkett of Burnettsville, Ind. He started 20th and finished tenth in a Maxim powered by a J&D Performance Chevy.

The Brookmyers also gave new right-rear Hoosier tires to the drivers who just missed the cut in the B-mains. They were Aaron Leffel of Springfield, Ohio and Sterling Cling of Indianapolis.

Polesitter Bradley Galedrige of Indianapolis didn’t show any rust when he won his heat and led the first 19 laps of the 25-lap IMCA winged 305 sprint car feature in his first start at Gas City in more than 10 years.

Barrow, of Unionville, Ind., started fourth. He took the lead from Galedrige with a move to the outside in Turn 3 with his Bridlewood Consulting No. 14, and was never again headed.

Dustin Stroup started ninth but he finished second after he passed Galedrige with three laps to go. Galedrige held on for third followed by two drivers from Bloomington, Ind. — Bradley Sterrett and Cody Trammell.

The USAC regional midget feature was intense even though the winner, Taylor, led all 25 laps from the pole. Veteran Jerry Coons Jr. of Greencastle, Ind. started third and dipped under the driver who started second, Stratton Briggs of Anna, Ohio, for second in Turn 3 working lap six. >From that point on Coons threw everything he had at Taylor but couldn’t pass him, although he dogged him the whole way. He got especially close on lap 14, but then lapped traffic made it hard for all of them.

Briggs got second back from Coons on the white-flag lap to finish second behind Taylor. Coons was third, Jacob Denney of Galloway, Ohio placed fourth and Will Armitage of Athens, Ill. finished fifth.

Corey Guingrich of Celina, Ohio was the race’s hard charger, coming from 18th to ninth. He received bonus money from the Brookmyers too.

Darin Naida of Adrian, Mich. led the first lap of the 15-lap 600cc non-wing micro-sprint feature before Harper took control and led the rest of the race. Kole Kirkman of Kokomo, Ind. placed third and Brent Busz of Pierceton, Ind. finished fourth. Ed Cleveland rounded out the top five.

The vintage sprint car feature was similar in that Roy Caruthers of Indianapolis led its first lap and the winner, Ingram, led the other 14. It was Ingram’s first dirt-track victory.

Caruthers finished second. His neighbor, Joey Vallone of Avon, Ind., finished third and Willie Tackitt of Tuscola, Ill. was fourth. Jason Metzinger of Lafayette, Ind. was the only driver who chose the high side in that race, and he finished fifth after starting eighth.

Dustin Ingle of Lima, Ohio flipped in Turn 2 at the start of the second sprint B-main. Kameron Gladish of Indianapolis flipped in Turn 1 with eight laps down in the third midget heat. Scott Bradley tipped over during a two-car crash between Turns 3 and 4 with one lap down in the 305 sprint feature. Luckily none required a trip to the hospital.

Hagar Wins Again in Short Track Nationals Prelim at Hammer Hill

Lonnie Wheatley, LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (October 2, 2020) –For the second year in a row, Marion, AR, native Derek Hagar kicked off I-30 Speedway’s Short Track Nationals by wiring the field in Friday night’s 25-lap Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour preliminary feature atop the high-banked, ¼-mile clay oval.

Earning the pole position for the nightcap, Hagar kept his Southern Collision Centre/B&D Towing & Recovery No. 9jr ahead of the carnage that eliminated half of the 20-car feature field to open up the 33rd Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires.

Hagar beat Pennsylvania’s Mark Smith to the line with Canadian Dylan Westbrook rallying from 19th to fill out the podium in third as a field of 78 cars hit the track for STN preliminary action.

“I knew those guys behind me would be coming,” Hagar said afterward. “This isn’t our kind of track, this thing was cowboy up. I found a good line in three and four, I felt like the top was going away and it was just way too far around up there.”

Smith made a brief bid on a restart with ten laps to go but was unable to maintain pace, settling for runner-up honors in the No. m1 Mach 1 chassis.

“We tried something a little different tonight than we did the last time we were here and just ended up with a little too much gear and just kind of lost momentum,” Smith commented afterward.

After starting 19th, Westbrook cracked the top five by the 15th lap then cashed in on second-runner Scott Bogucki’s misfortune and then battled past Howard Moore for third on the 17th round to keep the position the rest of the way.

“The night didn’t start out too good, but we kept on pushing for it and turned out real good for us,” Westbrook explained after the show finish in the Hills Racing No. 47x.

Moore edged Jordan Mallett at the line by inches for fourth with Garet Williamson, Matt Covington, 20th-starter Ayrton Gennetten, Brad Bowden, Charlie Louden and Devon Borden the cars remaining as the checkered flag flew.

The feature included two cautions and four red flag stoppages as follows:

Initial Start – The red flag flies right away when fourth-starter Marshall Skinner jumps a Bogucki tire entering turn one and flips hard, collecting I-30 Speedway track champion Cody Gardner and Brandon Anderson in the melee. All three were done for the night. Fifth-starter Garet Williamson’s top wing was peeled off in the incident, but he was able to return to action after a quick visit to the work area.

Second Start – After restarting ninth, Washington’s Devon Borden spins to a stop in turn three to force a third try.

One Lap – Two-time and defending STN champ Blake Hahn slows exiting turn four with a cut right rear tire and is unable to make it out of the work area before the race resumes.

Three Laps – After starting on the front row outside and still holding down third behind Hagar and Bogucki, Harli White spins in turn four and collects fifth-runner Dale Howard who ends up on his side. Both are done.

Lap Four Restart – Kyle Clark dumps it in turn three to precipitate another red flag with still just three laps in the books.

15 Laps – Battling for the fourth position with Howard Moore, Canadian Alex Hill clips an infield tire exiting turn four and takes a hard ride. Under the ensuing stoppage, Bogucki’s mount overheats and he is forced pitside, cutting short a torrid battle for second with Smith.

Heat race wins on the night went to Hill, Smith, Covington, Ernie Ainsworth, Skinner, Joey Schmidt, Mallett, Gardner and Colby Thornhill while Moore, Hahn, Bogucki and Williamson bested the Qualifying Races.

Ryan Bickett and Koty Adams won “C” Mains with Clark and Anderson best in the “B” Mains as Westbrook and Gennetten both made dramatic last-lap passes to snare final transfer positions.

The night’s most violent crash leading up to the feature occurred in the second qualifier when Ernie Ainsworth tagged the wall exiting turn four and was hit by several cars including current Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour point leader Sam Hafertepe, Jr., in the aftermath of several cars were dicing for position. Ainsworth and three-time STN runner-up Hafertepe, Jr., were done for the night.

The 33rd Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires at I-30 Speedway concludes with Saturday night’s $10,041-to-win tilt that features a full card of heat races, qualifying races, “C” Mains, “B” Mains and 41-lap STN championship “A” Main along with the Mike Pack Building Materials “Dash for Cash” and “Red Shirt Dash” in memory of Lanny Edwards. Racing action goes green at 7:30 p.m.

BUDDY KOFOID SWEEPS GOLD CROWN NIGHT ONE

Granite City, IL. (10/02/2020) The POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League was back in action for a two-day stint at the famous Tri-City Speedway for the Gold Crown Nationals. With 28 cars in attendance, an action-packed slider-filled night kept the crowd and drivers on their feet.
Michael "Buddy" Kofoid came out on top and killed the field to take his seventh trip to victory lane this season.

The feature action was all over at Tri-City Speedway, as front row competitors #67 Buddy Kofoid and #21K Emilio Hoover would being the field of 23 drivers to the green flag. Pole-sitter Kofoid would take the top side and gain the early lead, Thomas Meseraull would strike early but a pair of reds kept the field bunched up and gave Kofoid the advantage on the field.

With just under ten laps remaining, Kofoid still chose the top line around the racetrack but teammate Daison Pursley had his mind set elsewhere. Pursley would use a high-to-low maneuver on the exit of turn two which would give him an advantage. Pursley made the pass for the second-place position and set his sights on the top spot. With the laps winding down, Pursley gave Kofoid all he had but came up one spot short of his first POWRi Midget Victory. Cannon McIntosh finished in the third-place position, Thomas Meseraull in fourth, and rounding out your top five was Zach Daum.

The POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League will be back in action tomorrow, October 3 at Tri-City Speedway for the final night of the Gold Crown Nationals.

By Jim Balentine

Mercer,Pa

Oct 2

Under beautiful blue skies Michaels Mercer Raceway began its 21st annual little guy nationals on Friday night Oct 2nd with 6 divisions in the pits on a chilly October evening.

Winners were Kyle Fink(small block modifieds); Chris McGuire( penn/Ohio stocks); Jimmy Morris(305 sprints); Eric Gabany(FASTRAK modifieds); Nathaniel Bale(Mod lites) and Phil King(mini stocks).

In the open small block modified feature Kyle Fink started up 3rd and held off challenges from modified stand out Eric Rudolph to take his 3rd career little guy nationals win. Rudolph who was involved in a tangle with Fink as they were battling had to go to the rear for bringing out the caution and Fink, who never stopped , went back to his lead position. Rudolph would make his way through the pack and once again challenged Fink for the lead but he kept his line and held off the New York star to capture the event. New York dominated the top spots as Rudolph finishes second, Ron Cartwright 3rd, Tony Pangrazio 4th and last years winner Phil Vigneri 5th all from the Empire State.

Chris McGuire has taken a liking to Mercer as he held of John Boardman to win his second Penn/Ohio pro stock feature of the year at the speedway. Tim Bish who was looking to capture another little guy nationals win broke while leading and McGuire would get around Penn/Ohio point champ Jackson Humanic to go on for the win.

After a 6 year dry spell Jimmy Morris now has won 2 Mercer Racesaver 305 sprint features in a row and he was never challenged from the pole for a 7 second victory. Greg Dobrosky was 2nd, last years winner Kyle Colwell 3rd, Jeremy Kornbau 4th, and Steve Cousins 5th.

Eric Gabany from his 4th starting spot picked up his historic 15th career FASTRAK limited modified feature and his 3rd little guy win. Kole Holden challenged Gabany at the end to finish 2nd, Jeff Schaffer Jr was 3rd, Preston Cope moved up 6 spots to finish 4th and Chas Wolbert passed 13 cars to finish 5th.

Nathaniel Bale has now won 2 career Mercer mod lite features in his young career coming from the 7th position for the win. Last years winner Shane Webb was 2nd, Roman Jones 3rd, Darryl Jones up 6 spots for 4th and Darryl Hoon up 8 positions for 5th.

Phil King survived a caution and accident marred mini stock feature to pick up his second career win. Last week’s winner Andy Thompson Bounced back to second, Adam Aley who won two weeks ago finish third, Summer Pitts up 12 spots for 4th and Carl Ealy 5th.

Blurton Captures Victory on Night One of WaKeeney Showdown with United Rebel Sprint Series

WAKEENEY, Kansas (September 26, 2020) – Twenty-nine cars were in competition with the Lucas Oil POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series Presented by Mel Hambelton Ford Racing for night one of the WaKeeney Showdown at WaKeeney Speedway.

The first ten laps saw the top-four runners remaining the same, while battle ensued behind. Taylor Velasquez climbed through the field up to fifth.

By the twelfth circuit, Blurton advanced to second over JD Johnson. Four laps later, Blurton moved forward yet again to claim the lead. Oklahoma’s Jake Martens battled back to take the top position back on lap 19. Blurton and Martens would battle in the laps following before a late-race caution flew over the field.

The restart saw Blurton advancing back to the lead. JD Johnson slid to second in the closing laps, but Martens pushed to a last lap pass to get second place. Johnson would finish third, while Jordan Knight and Jed Werner rounded out the top-five finishers with the United Rebel Sprint Series on night one of the WaKeeney Showdown.

Blurton Sweeps WaKeeney Showdown with United Rebel Sprint Series

WAKEENEY, Kansas (September 27, 2020) – The Mel Hambelton Ford Racing Lucas Oil POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series took to the 3/8-mile dirt track of WaKeeney Speedway for the WaKeeney Showdown finale on Sunday night. Twenty-seven cars were in attendance for the finale and it was Quinter, Kansas’ Zach Blurton picking up the $1,000-to-win feature event.

Kyler Johnson and Todd Plemons were scheduled to set the pace for Sunday’s 30-lap feature event, but trouble ensued for Johnson during the pace lap causing him to pull off the track. Oklahoma-native, Jake Martens, assumed the pole starting position. At the drop of the green, Martens marched to the race lead ahead of Plemons while Blurton charged forward to third. Blurton would go on to challenge Plemons for the runner-up position, but Plemons battled back.

With ten laps in the books, a caution flew for Mark Walinder who fell off the track and spun. It was Martens taking off with the race lead on the restart while Plemons and Blurton continued to battle for second. Blurton advanced to second and made a charge toward race leader, Jake Martens.

On lap 20, Blurton assumed the lead over Martens. Martens appeared to have a mechanical issue, falling back to fourth after sweeping off of the track. Ty Williams would assume the second position over Scott Cochran. Taylor Velasquez, from the B-feature, made a charge forward through the field throughout the 30-lap event.

The red flag flew over the field with five laps remaining. It was Blurton maintaining the race lead and navigating the track to expand the lead. Martens pulled off, assuming Velasquez to third. Blurton went on to win the feature event over Ty Williams, Taylor Velasquez, Scott Cochran, and Todd Plemons.

Sunday’s United Rebel Sprint Series heat races were won by Zach Blurton, Chad Salem, Jake Martens, and Scott Cochran. The Keizer Aluminum Wheels hard-charger was awarded to Taylor Velasquez, coming from a B-Feature win to start 13th and finish third.

Dylan Westbrook Claims $5,000 Fall Haul at 34/First Canadian Sprint Invaders Winner!

Chris Martin Wins Driver Title/Scott Bonar is Owner Champion

(Bill W) West Burlington, IA, September 26, 2020 – Dylan Westbrook emerged victorious on a huge night of racing Saturday at 34 Raceway’s Sprint Invaders “Fall Haul” in West Burlington, Iowa. The driver of the Hill’s Racing #47x is a native of Scotland, Ontario, Canada, and became the first Canadian winner in Sprint Invaders history. His win was worth $5,000 in the finale for the Sprint Invaders.

Despite a rough night that saw him miss the feature, Chris Martin claimed his second Sprint Invaders driver championship (his first came in 2016). Scott Bonar’s #50 team won the season owner championship.

The 34-lap feature was slow to start. Riley Goodno and Ricky Montgomery made contact, and both cars were damaged enough to retire. Scott Bogucki, who won the Dash, led early ahead of Westbrook and Trey Starks. Westbrook tracked the leader down and won a battle for the point on lap five. At that point, Devon Dobie and Joe Beaver came to a stop and retired.

Westbrook led Bogucki, Starks, Justin Sanders and Austin McCarl back to green. It was a short-lived good run for Sanders who slowed in three and four on the restart. When the green flew again, McCarl and Paul Nienhiser swapped the fourth position, while Westbrook continued to lead the field.

Nienhiser gained the spot and then, surged from fifth to second. The move was negated when Bogucki’s second place run was thwarted with a 360 spin. On that restart, the top ten cars of Josh Schneiderman and Kyle Offill, who were both feature winners here in 2020, came together. Both suffered damage enough to retire.

Two more laps into green flag racing, Nienhiser passed Starks for second, before Nate Mills came to a stop on the front stretch. The last 22 laps went non-stop. Carson and Austin McCarl battled for fourth, while the top three pulled away.

The track developed a low groove in three and four, and Nienhiser tracked down Westbrook. The two exchanged the lead a few times, with Nienhiser leading lap 19. Westbrook officially took the lead back for good on lap 20, and entered lapped traffic on lap 23.

Starks reeled in the lead pair and passed Nienhiser for second on lap 31, but Nienhiser powered back by on the white flag lap.

Westbrook would pull away for the win, ahead of Nienhiser, Starks, Carson McCarl and Austin McCarl. Ayrton Gennetten, hard-charger Lynton Jeffrey, Bogucki, Colton Fisher and Dugan Thye rounded out the top ten. Sanders, Gennetten, Carson McCarl, Westbrook and Nienhiser won the five heats. Bogucki won the Shake-up Dash and Goodno claimed the B main. Blaine Jamison tangled with Mike Johnston in his heat race and got upside down hard. He was uninjured.

Nienhiser took home $500 for his win in the first annual eight-lap Shottenkirk Terry Jamison Memorial Owners Dash, honoring the top eight in owner points coming in. Dozens of sponsors boosted the purse and provided bonuses throughout the night.

“The track changed a lot,” said Westbrook. “I ran on the bottom of one and two, and in three and four, I kind of rolled through the middle. Later on, it got really thin on the bottom, so I had to really slow down in one and two. Late in the race, the bottom of turn four took rubber, so I had to hit that just right. Paul got by me the one time. I saw his nose on the top of turn four, so I thought I better try that. When I tried it, he got by me. After that, I knew I couldn’t let that happen again. I hit my marks and it paid off.”

“It’s tough to say how it would have played out (without an early caution that cost him a couple of spots),” said Nienhiser. “I was rolling the top really well, and eventually it ended up taking some rubber down low. I found it pretty well. We passed for the lead once or twice, I just missed my marks a couple times. Dylan is a really good driver, and I knew I was going to have to run a perfect race to get by him. All in all, it was a good night, but second stings a little worse than a regular night with the money we had up for grabs. But it was a good night, we can’t complain.”

“The track definitely changed throughout the race,” said Starks. “Thirty four laps is a long time. We saw it go from the top to the bottom, and parts taking rubber. I was trying the top at the end, and I felt like we found something. I just kind of ran out of laps. I feel if we had a little more traffic, and took one or row of those cautions out, it would have been interesting with everyone else on the bottom. I think all of us were pretty equal. It’s a really fun track that was changing constantly.”

Estes III Drives 360C.I. LS Concept Engine to Sprint Car Bandits Victory Lane in Convincing Style at Kennedale Speedway Park

Kennedale TX (9/27/20) by DarinShort.com. When the Sprint Car Bandits® (SCB) series was founded five years ago, at the center of the mission was to offer sustainable 360C.I. sprint car racing through our basic set of rules – that have successfully proven to save racers money – all while providing race fans a great show and race tracks an affordable program. And we’ve accomplished all of these goals without costing teams any added cost.

And last night, the next phase of the sustainability goal ended up coming to fruition: as an LS concept engine built by Allard Racing Engines ended up in victory lane, topping a stacked 30-car SCB field.

The goal of this project is not to duplicate existing engine combinations but rather to offer an affordable, yet very competitive alternative. This LS recipe costs significantly less than other current engine platforms. Yet, all current engine platforms will continue to be legal in Sprint Car Bandits competition. Plus, aftermarket parts are readily available – and at very reasonable prices.

RACE REWIND: 30 Sprint Car Bandits teams assembled at Kennedale Speedway Park's Special event show from as far away as 9 hours away, and would put on an amazing show – from start to finish – for the huge supportive crowd.

Bo Rawdon and the KSP track crew spent an incredible amount of time in preparation to provide a track surface that was second to none from start to finish, resulting in faster cars being able to advance their position in each event.

Backing up that statement, three 10-car, 10-lap heats were staged and in the first one out of the chute included Claud Estes III, with his LS Allard Racing Engines SCB concept engine under the hood, and he established that he didn’t come to play – after advancing from 10th to finish 2nd in his nonstop heat race. That would also just about lock up that Claud would start on the pole of the feature after garnering nearly the maximum amount of passing points. It would also lock him into the $500 to win Cabinets By Tommy Dash for Cash. Marcus Thomas would win heat 1 in the PCR #10 car.

The second heat race would also go green-to-checkered nonstop with Zane Lawrence blasting by six cars to garner the most points in the heat race. USAC Silver Crown driver and all-around nice guy Austin Mundie scorched the field and took the checkers first.

With the track still in lightning fast shape, heat race 3 would fire off with DJ Estes going for a light tumble after bicycling in corner one in the first lap. He would become the only flip victim of the evening – but would make repairs in time for the B-feature. Jett Hays and John Ricketts would battle it out for supremacy, with Jett blasting to the checkers first. Ricketts would be piloting a brand new 360C.I. car fielded by event sponsor, Cabinets By Tommy of Granbury, Texas.

This set the stage for a special added event, the $500 to win Cabinets By Tommy Dash For Cash. Marcus Thomas would draw the pole position on the frontstretch in front of the massive KSP crowd, and when the green dropped, John Ricketts would wrestle the lead from Thomas and take home a super popular win – and collect his own sponsors $500 winners award. Zane Lawrence would start 4th and sneak by Thomas for a 2nd place finish on the final lap.

After a wild and nearly disastrous encounter with the wall in heat race 3, 19-year-old Casey Burkham would start the B-feature in 10th position, piloting the potent Burkham Contracting #45B. Yours truly announced to the KSP fans to keep one eye on Burkham as the race progressed as he was 3rd in points in SCB 2020 and was clearly one of the fastest cars on the track early on.

Sure enough, when the green flag dropped in the nonstop 12-lapper, Burkham would literally be blowing the decals off of other cars as he advanced through the field – much to the delight of the appreciative KSP crowd. On the final lap, Burkham would track down and catch event winner, veteran driver Steve McMackin, but McMackin would seal the win by taking SCB flagman Brad Shirley’s checkers first.

This would set the stage for arguably the most anticipated sprint car feature event in KSP history, as the field was stacked, and literally a dozen starters could easily emerge as the winner – if they paired their setup on the blazing-fast track into reality.

Top qualifier Claud Estes III and Zane Lawrence would bring the field down for the green in perfect military precision, nose-to-tail, side-by-side and no fanning out, and immediately a three-car battle would rage, between Estes III, Lawrence and Jett Hays. Meanwhile, the ultra-fast cars of Chad Wilson and Casey Burkham would be slicing and dicing their way through the field – but each would become sidelined due to contact, with Burkham’s causing the only yellow in the 25-lapper.

Around lap 7, the trio of leaders would encounter lapped traffic and then the intensity turned up to fog horn level, when young Jett Hays would be able to sneak by Estes III to take the lead, officially for a lap, when the wily veteran would dive low to retake the lead the following lap. With the crowd waving and cheering all along, suddenly the 7th place starter of John Ricketts would join the trio of leaders making it a 4-pack battling for the lead, when the yellow light would flash for Casey Burkham.

When the event resumed, Estes III would find himself with a clear racetrack ahead and a hard charging John Ricketts in tow. Ricketts would nearly catch Estes III but the ‘Ambassador’ would not be denied and take home the win, much to the approval of the KSP fans. Ricketts would end up in 2nd – with another huge roar of support for his efforts from the crowd. Marcus Thomas would work his way back to finish in 3rd, while Zane Lawrence and Austin Mundie rounded out the top 5.

Chip Graham would be awarded $200 from Cabinets By Tommy for earning the feature race Hard Charger, advancing 9 spots, while current SCB points leader Michael Day would pick up an extra $100 from Cabinets By Tommy for being the 9th place driver on the 9th lap.

THANK YOU to the great KSP fans, track workers, race teams and SCB staff for such an awesome night at the racetrack, free of ‘outside influences’ – which can be a rarity in this crazy year known as 2020.

NEXT UP for the Sprint Car Bandits series will be a one-night stand at Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls, Texas on Saturday October 10th at 7pm. The $2,000 to win and $300/start (22nd) feature will also include the same exact Cabinets By Tommy promos – meaning one driver could take home $2,500! Click www.MMSdirt.com or on Facebook @MonarchMotorSpeedway for complete event info, as it’s already posted.

The final scheduled event of the season is the 2nd Annual Paul Peters Memorial event at what I call “The Land of the XL” 82 Speedway in Petty Texas on Saturday, November 7th with a 5pm twilight starting time. It will also be a $2,000 to win and $300 to start affair.

Balog, Gerrits, Cox, Malueg collect Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships hardware at Plymouth

McMullen wraps up second PDTR 360 Sprint Car crown

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 26, 2020 – On a night when Sprint Cars were king, four champions were crowned in five different open wheel touring series during the Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 26.

In the headlining Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series, Bill Balog of Hartland captured his 12th IRA A-main victory of the year in the 30-lap main event en route to nailing down his record 10th IRA title.

Will Gerrits of Waupun led flag to flag to earn his first Plymouth Dirt Track Racing-Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car main event victory of the 2020 season.

In addition, Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh secured his second Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car championship, while also claiming his fourth Midwest Sprint Car Association crown.

Tim Cox of Park City, Ill. notched his first A-main victory of the season in the 20-lap Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Car Series main event, while Jimmy Sivia of Winthrop Harbor, Ill. earned his first career AutoMeter Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Car championship.

C.J. Malueg of Johnsburg, Ill. earned the 20-lap IRA Lightning Sprints A-main victory in a photo finish on the way to the 2020 IRA Lightning Sprints title.

The initial start of the 30-lap IRA 410 Sprint Car Series A main was aborted when Todd Daun of Pleasant Prairie stopped near the turn two wall to bring out the first of six caution flags.

Following a complete restart, Bill Balog jumped out to the lead from the pole position with third starter Scotty Thiel of Sheboygan surging into second along the low groove.

The second caution was displayed on lap 2 when Hunter Custer of Chippewa Falls stopped in turn four. Following the restart, Balog held strong at the front of the field with Thiel in tow before the lead duo hit lapped traffic on lap 5, which provided Thiel with an opportunity to pounce.

On lap 6, Thiel ducked low to pull even with Balog. The two Sprint Car standouts dueled side by side over the next two circuits before Thiel surged into the lead in turn four on lap 8.

The third caution flag appeared on lap 11 when Robbie Pribnow of Lomira stopped along the frontstretch. Thiel pulled away from Balog on the restart before traffic again made things interesting beginning on lap 15.

One lap later, Balog used the outside groove to power around Thiel into the lead on lap 16. On the next circuit, Jordan Goldesberrry of Springfield, Ill. spun in turn one before collecting Kris Spitz of Salem.

Balog controlled the ensuing restart before the fifth caution flew on lap 22 when Blake Nimee of Oswego, Ill. stopped in turn three on lap 22. On the ensuing restart, Balog again powered away to a full-straightaway advantage on lap 25.

As Balog hit lapped traffic one final time, Balog closed the gap dramatically on lap 28. With Thiel gaining quickly on Balog entering the final two turns, Scott Biertzer of West Bend slowed in turn three, which caused Kris Spitz to spin just in front of Thiel, who was collected in the incident to bring out the sixth caution of the race.

Thiel was able to continue in the race at the rear of the field in a green-white-checkered flag finish. Balog powered away from former IRA champion Jake Blackburst of Hanna City, Ill. on the restart and held onto post is 12th IRA A-main victory of the season, record a season sweep of the three 2020 IRA A-main events at Plymouth and rack up his 125th career IRA A-main triumph.

“We had a great battle with Scotty [Thiel] for a while there,” Balog said. “Then the spin happened on the last lap with Scotty. After that, I think Jake [Blackhurst] was behind us. I didn’t know how close Blackhurst was during the lap few laps. I was a little worried because I bobbled and jumped the cushion at the end.”

Blackhurst, who started fourth, came home a strong second.

“It’s great to have this car turned around and consistently running toward the front now,” Blackhurst said. “Congratulations to Bill and his team on the victory and championship. Man, he is good.”

Mike Reinke of Howards Grove finished third in the Bob Hood 10W entry, after starting sixth.

“It looked like we were going to be a fourth or fifth-place car tonight,” Reinke said. “We were not as fast as the top three guys in open air then some things happened near the end that ended up putting us on the podium. I’m happy with a podium finish to close out the year. This will help in building some momentum into the offseason and into 2021.”

Outside front row starter Joey Moughan of Springfield, Ill. finished fourth and former IRA champion Jeremy Schultz of Beaver Dam placed fifth after starting 11th.

Outside front row starter Will Gerrits grabbed the lead of the 25-lap PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Car A main with polesitter Chris Clayton of Waldo sliding into second. By lap 5, Gerrits had bolted out to a full straightaway lead over Clayton.

On lap 10, 2011 PDTR and MSA champion Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove moved in from his sixth starting spot to work around Clayton for second on lap 10.

The leaders hit lapped traffic on lap 13 before Travis Arenz of Sheboygan used a slide job to clear Schmidt and take second in turn two on lap 14. Schmidt battled back to regain second lap 16. However, Arenz regained the spot in turn three on lap 17.

Arenz was closing rapidly on Gerrits for the lead in dense lapped traffic before the lone caution flag of the race was displayed on lap 17 when 2018 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Justin Miller of Plymouth spun in turn two.

Following the restart, Gerrits again opened up a sizable gap when Arenz and Schmidt dueled back and forth for second with Arenz eventually maintaining the spot on lap 18.

Arenz worked the high groove throughout the majority of the final seven circuits, but was unable to reel in Gerrits, who secured his first A-main victory of the 2020 season and his second career PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Car A-main victory.

“This certainly makes up for the god-awful year we’ve had,” Gerrits said. “I have to thank everyone in the pits that helps out on this car.”

Arenz finished second, Schmidt placed third, third starter Kevin Karnitz of West Bend ended up fourth and Clayton rounded out the top five.

Vince Bartolotta of Muskego grabbed the lead of the 20-lap Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Car A main from the pole with outside front row starter Tim Cox settling into second.

On lap 6, Ryan Marshall of Kansasville, who started fifth, moved in to challenge the high-riding Cox along the high groove, but Cox prevailed before moving in to pressure Bartolotta for the top spot on lap 8.

One lap later, Cox powered around Bartolotta along the outside groove to seize the top spot. On lap 11, Marshall slipped underneath Bartolotta to take over second before the first of two caution flags was displayed on lap 16 when Chris Klemko of Bristol, who entered the race with a 10-point lead over Jimmy Sivia in the chase for the 2020 Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Car Series title, had nowhere to go and was collected after Jake Kouba of Minneapolis, Minn. spun along the frontstretch.

The incident effectively dashed Klemko’s championship hopes as he was forced to restart the race at the rear of the field.

On lap 18, Marshall moved in to pressure Cox for the lead along the inside groove before 11th starter Nathan Crane of Waukegan assumed third from Marshall on lap 19.

The second caution of the race was then displayed on lap 19 when Brian Strane of Paris spun in turn two. On the restart, third starter Derek Crane of Waukegan, Ill. moved in to assume second as Cox cruised to his first Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Car Series A-main victory of the 2020 season.

Derek Crane finished second, Nathan Crane was third, Marshall wound up fourth and Rusty Egan of Burlington finished fifth after starting 12th.

“It took us the whole summer to get here,” Cox said. “We crashed badly and missed a few races. I turned 60 this year and it is great to get a win. I want to say ‘congratulations’ to Jimmy Sivia on the championship.”

Sivia was delighted to earn his first career AutoMeter Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Car Series title under the IRA banner.

“I’m feeling a lot of emotions right now,” Sivia said. “I have grown up traveling around with the IRA and now it feels great that now I can call myself an IRA champion.”

In the 20-lap IRA Lightning Sprints A main, Mark Heinert of Oak Creek took the lead from the outside front row starting position. The first of three cautions was displayed on lap 8 when Chris Quillman of Delevan stopped near the turn three pit exit.

Following the restart, the fourth starting C.J. Malueg moved into second from his third starting spot.

After two more caution flags, the table was set for a thrilling finish. On lap 18, Malueg powered in to challenge Heinert.

On the final circuit, Malueg used a huge run of off turn four to pull even with Heinert as the two drivers dueled to the checkered flag with Malueg prevailing at the finish line by four one-thousands of a second.

Heinert placed second, Ron Brannam of Barrington, Ill. finished third after starting fifth, 10th starter Nick Petska of Spring Grove, Ill. took fourth and polesitter Jeff Schmidt of Slinger placed fifth.

Jake Blackhurst turned the fastest IRA 410 Sprint Car Series qualifying lap of the evening by touring the third-mile clay oval in 11.932 seconds.

The IRA B main went to Blake Ninmee. Blake Wondra of Fond du Lac won the MSA B main. Jim Wehrman of Kansasville captured the Wisconsin Wingless B main.

The all-Sprint Car program, which featured a total of 105 cars, included 29 IRA 410 Sprint Cars and 31 PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Cars, 28 Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Cars and 17 IRA Lightning Sprints.

Collins State Bank and RC Custom Design were the trophy sponsors for the evening.

Maddox Takes Non-Wing Top Gun Sprint Main

East Bay Raceway Park provided the backdrop for the first non-wing competition of the 2020 season for the Top Gun Sprints with a field of 25 cars answering the call.

Heats were won by Bryan Eckley, Justin Webster, Steve Diamond and Shane Butler, which gave the quartet a shot at an additional $600 with a feature win. The good luck from the preliminaries did not carry through to feature as none of them were able to finish the 25-lap main.

The initial start was waved off after Cole Nichols came to a stop at the outside of turn one. On the restart, polesitter and series point leader Garrett Green fell in behind Shane Butler, but trouble struck when Green went low in turn four and began to flip through the turn, coming to rest in the middle of the track. Green was unhurt. During the clean-up, a fire broke out in Eckley’s car, which was extinguished and the car was pushed back to the pit while the on-track work continued. Nichols was able to return under the red flag and Eckley pushed out in turn to rejoin with no laps complete.

Justin Webster seized the early lead. Going to the top of the track and maintaining a fast pace. The leaders caught the back of the pack by the third lap, slicing through traffic in an attempt to hide from pursuers. A.J. Maddox began to make his move, taking third on lap four and gaining second on the next lap. On Lap seven, leader Webster went hurtling into turn one and hit the wall, collecting Shane Butler and Steve Diamond, ending the night for all three and leading to a red flag for clean-up.

Maddox inherited the lead while the action continued to heat up deeper in the field. Stan Butler passed Andrew Griffin for second with Ryan Bartholomew dispatching Griffin another spot. Three laps later, it was a hard charging Brandon Grubaugh who shot to second with Tyler Clem following through for third. Clem, who started 25th after failing to make the heat, was pressuring Grubaugh until a mechanical issue ended his night early.

The third red flag appeared on lap 18 as Stan Butler collected the frontstretch and did one complete flip. He was uninjured, but the car was damaged to the point of elimination. On the restart, Maddox had the advantage of three lapped cars between himself and Grubaugh and took advantage to scoot away to an insurmountable lead. The win gave the 2019 Top Gun Sprints champion his first series victory of the year and avenged some of the sting from a narrow defeat in East Bay’s last non-wing race in 2019.

Racing action continues Saturday, October 3 with Gagel’s Open Wheel Modifieds, Pro Late Models, Street Stocks, Mod Lites and Q Auto & Injury Medical Malpractice Mini Sprints.

Wise gets 1st FAST Fremont win; Ingle scores 1st career BOSS victory; Weaver gets 7th 305 win

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Zeb Wise accomplished something Saturday, Sept. 26 that young sprint car drivers aren’t supposed to do – win at the historic Fremont Speedway in his first year of winged sprint car racing. Wise, 17, from Angola, Indiana, took the lead from the drop of the green and led all 30 laps of the Ti22 Performance FAST Series feature for his first career win at “The Track That Action Built” on Union Trades Night.

“Sam (McGhee) had the super tune on this thing. We lost a few crew guys the last weekend so to come back with just me my dad, Sam and Mike McGhee…it’s pretty special to be standing here,” said Wise in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.

“Tonight was one of the more technical race tracks I’ve seen here. Last time I was here I got one stolen away from me on the last corner and I wasn’t going to let that happen again. I kind of sold out on the top there and it worked out,” added Wise beside his Mike McGhee and Associates/Sundollar Restoration/Specialty Rigging/Pro Cup Racing Experience backed #11

Lima, Ohio’s Dustin Ingle lost the lead on a restart with seven laps to go in the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series feature. But he didn’t lose his cool, stayed focused on his high side line and drove back into the lead with four laps to go and went on to claim his first ever sprint car win.

“I kept telling myself don’t give up on the top…keep beating it down. I made a couple of mistakes there with a couple to go and tried to be smooth and close it out. This is the first win in my career in a sprint car,” said an elated Dustin Ingle beside his Gross & Sons Custom Millwork, Gils Trucking, Smugglers Cove Campground backed 2DI.

Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver admits he’s had a lot of lady luck on his side during a spectacular 2020 season. It continued Saturday. Weaver, who started 15th, was running third when a caution flew with 11 laps to go. That wiped out a five second lead Jamie Miller had built up. On the restart Weaver took second and Miller got a flat tire with seven laps to go, handing the lead to Weaver who drove to his seventh win of the year at Fremont Speedway.

It was Weaver’s 14th total victory of 2020 and was the 58th of his career at Fremont Speedway placing him in a tie with Jim Linder for fifth on the track’s all-time win list.

“I just took it easy….man luck was on my side. Jim Linder is one of the greats. I’m just an average racer plucking away at some 305 wins at the end of my career. Jim and Mark Keegan they were on top of their game back then running against the best that were around. Good to be up there on the list but it’s not the same. I had 16 wins in one year but I was a lot younger,” said Weaver beside his B&B Drain Services, M&L Excavating, Hampshire Engines backed #1W.

John Ivy and Wise brought the field to green for the 30 lap FAST feature with Wise gaining the advantage over Ivy, Travis Philo, DJ Foos and Craig Mintz. Wise began to pull away but a red flag on lap six kept the field close.

On the restart Wise again built his lead while Ivy, Philo, Mintz, Nate Dussel and Foos battled hard for second. At the half-way point Wise held an over two second lead with Philo, Dussel, Ivy and Mintz waging a fantastic battle for second.

With eight laps to go, Ivy, Dussel and Cole Macedo tangled while battling for fifth whipping out Wise’s lead. On the restart Wise again pulled away while Philo and Mintz battled for second. Wise drove away to the win with Mintz getting around Philo on the last lap for second. Foos and Tyler Gunn rounded out the top five.

Ingle and Isaac Chapple brought the field to green for the 25-lap BOSS feature with Ingle gaining the slight advantage over Chappel, Cody White, Trey Jacobs, Luke Hall, Ricky Peterson and Dallas Hewitt. Ingle and Chapple raced side by side the opening three laps with Jacobs, making his first non-wing sprint car start, riding comfortably in third.

Ingle built up a nearly three second lead when the caution flew with seven laps to go. On the ensuing restart Chappel drove under Ingle to take the lead with Hall, Hewitt and Peterson racing each other hard for third. Ingle stayed committed to the high groove and drove back into the lead on lap 21 with Chappel now having to deal with Hall, Hewitt and Peterson.

Ingle hit his marks perfectly the closing laps and took the win over Hewitt who had won the previous two appearances of BOSS at Fremont, Hall, Chappel and Jacobs rounding out the top five.

Brandon Moore and Jamie Miller paced the field to green for the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 A-main with Miller gaining the advantage over Moore, Seth Schneider, Matt Foos, Logan Riehl and Larry Kingseed.

Miller built his lead to nearly two seconds by lap four with Moore, Foos, Schneider, Kyle Capodice and Kingseed in pursuit. Weaver, who started 15th was up to seventh in just five laps. Miller raced into heavy lapped traffic by the 10th circuit with Moore, Foos, Weaver and Schneider giving chase.

Miller’s lead was over five seconds when the caution flew on lap 14. On the restart Weaver drove around Moore for second Miller jumped the cushion in turn four on lap 18 and ended up going to the pits with a flat tire on lap 18, handing the lead to Weaver.

Weaver pulled away the remaining seven laps to score the win with Foos, Mike Keegan, Moore and Kingseed rounding out the top five.

Saturday, Oct. 3 is Fremont Federal Credit Union Season Championship Night for the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints, Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints and the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks.

McMullen outduels Vanderboom at Dodge County
to extend MSA winning streak

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 25, 2020 – Three-time Midwest Sprint Car Association champion and current point leader Brandon McMullen Oshkosh held off a spirited challenge from 17-year-old Jack Vanderboom of Dousman to rack up his third straight MSA A-main victory in the 20-lap Fuzzy Fassbender Memorial Race at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam. Wis. on Friday, Sept. 25.

The 16th full MSA program of the COVID-19-shortened 2020 campaign was run in honor of the late Fuzzy Fassbender, father of current MSA competitor and former series champion Lance Fassender of Burnett, who was one of the most successful open-wheel racers in Southeastern Wisconsin racing history.

The event drew 24 entrants for the second MSA event of the 2020 season at the sprawling “horsepower half mile” facility.

Outside front row starter Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum got the jump on polesitter Tyler Davis of South Milwaukee to lead the opening lap of the 20-lap main event, while fourth starter Jack Vanderbooom bolted into second and sixth starter Lance Fassbender slipped into third.

On lap 2, McMullen made his presence felt as he worked his way up from the eighth starting spot to power around Fassbender into third in the running order exiting turn four.

One lap later, Vanderboom bolted in to pressure Wenninger for the top spot along the low groove of the lightning fast track surface. Wenninger and Vanderboom dueled side by side for the lead over three consecutive laps, before the lone caution flag of the race was displayed on lap 6 when rookie Austin Hartmann of Plymouth spun in turn three.

Under caution, Wenninger’s machine slowed to a stop in turn one and failed to refire, forcing him to retire to the pit area as Vanderboom inherited the lead.

McMullen used strong run on the restart to surge past Vanderboom into the lead with a high move in turn three on lap 7. McMullen wasted no time in building up a solid cushion over Vanderboom as the leaders began to slice their way through lapped traffic during the second half of the race.

On lap 13, five-time MSA champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee, who started seventh, pulled off a slide job to pass Fassbender for third in turn three.
Meanwhile, McMullen had his hands full with lapped traffic over the final five circuits, which allowed Vanderboom to close the gap drastically in the closing laps.

On the final lap Vanderboom appeared that he was going to make a challenge for the lead with a big run in turns three and four. However, the second-year MSA 360 Sprint Car competitor jumped the cushion entering turn four and was unable to mount a serious threat in the final corner as McMullen held on to secure his seventh MSA A-main victory of the season, second victory of the 2020 campaign at the Dodge County Fairgrounds and 30th overall career MSA main event win.

After the race, McMullen seemed more impressed with Vanderboom’s runner-up effort, than his own performance.

“It’s awesome to get a win, but I’m pumped for Jack,” McMullen said. “He really gave me a run and made me earn it tonight. He has an awesome future in racing.”
Vanderboom equaled his career-best MSA A-main finish with a second-place showing.

“I almost had him at the end, but things were a little sketchy in turns three and four on that final lap when I got up too high,” Vanderboom said. “Overall, it was a really good night and it feels good to bring the car home second.”
Davis was satisfied with a third-place showing at one of his favorite tracks on the MSA schedule.

“I love this place,” Davis said. “It makes up get up on the wheel, steer, stand on the gas and just go fast. Some people like the smaller tracks and maybe don’t like tracks like this as much, but it is definitely one of my favorite tracks.”
Tim Haddy of Waupun placed fourth after starting fifth and Fassbender rounded out the top five.

Heat race victories went to Brandon Berth of Cascade, Shane Wenninger and Tim Haddy.

The next race on the 2020 MSA schedule is the season finale as part of the Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 26.

On-track activity is slated to begin at 4:45 p.m. with qualifying and racing to follow for the all-Sprint Car program, which also features the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association, AutoMeter Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Cars and IRA Lightning Sprints.

Bowers Jr., Snyder Victorious on Championship Night; Andersen, Drueke, Baumli, Wright, Barnes and Asher Earn 2020 Titles

By: Jacob Blair

OSBORN, Mo. – Six new champions were crowned on Friday at US 36 Raceway.

In the IMCA Modifieds, point leader Chad Andersen took to the early lead. After leading a few laps, national point contender Steven Bowers Jr. began to close. Before the halfway point of the race, Bowers slipped by Andersen and drove to his fifth win of the season at US 36 and made the trip to Westfall GMC Victory Lane. Andersen held on for second and clinched the 2020 track title. Josh Munsen earned track rookie of the year, finishing third on the night. Mark Schafman and Tony Layne completed the top five.

In the IMCA Sprint Cars, Stuart Snyder went wire-to-wire to earn his second straight victory at the track. Kenny Potter ran the entire race in second about a half straightaway back from Snyder. Trevor Grossenbacher completed a solid run with a third place finish. Tyler Drueke finished fourth, which was good enough to take the 2020 track championship in the Sprint Cars. Toby Chapman completed the top five.

Up next a US 36 Raceway is the 2nd Annual IMCA Missouri Nationals, October 8-10 featuring the IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sprint Cars, IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Sport Mods.

Bard completes Lincoln sweep

Garrett Bard made it two-for-two at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night with a convincing PA Sprint Series feature win that brought him closer to the IMCA/RaceSaver national championship.

The Wells Tannery driver brushed aside a bad heat race starting draw and won that event, then moved from his fourth starting position to second on the opening lap and passed early leader Ken Duke Jr. in turn three following a lap four restart to take control of the feature, holding off a charging Devin Adams at the end of a race that highlighted several of PASS’s “young lions” racers.

Bard’s CG Racing Engines/Barnett Self-Storage #95 had led all 20 laps for a July 4 win at Lincoln, but in that race, Doug Dodson had mounted a torrid challenge that had included one successful slide job, countered by Bard’s successful cross-over. This time, while Adams closed the gap on the leader in the final couple of laps, Bard’s mastery of traffic kept his lead safe.

Duke, who had held off Adams for second until the midway point in the race, ended up third, ahead of recent high school graduate Justin Mills and Derek Hauck.

Dave Grube II, Landon Price, Dylan Shatzer, Doug Dodson and Dylan Smith rounded out the top 10.

Heat races for the 28-car field were won by Bard, Duke and Jake Frye, with Dodson taking the B-Main.

Frye was later involved in the night’s only major incident, jumping the cushion in turn three on lap three and flipping after hitting the wall. The Lewisberry teenager, who won his first feature earlier this year at nearby Trail-Way Speedway, was uninjured.

Dodson claimed the evening’s hard charger award with a gain of 10 positions – the next best “charge” was Bard’s, going from fourth to first. Dodson had withdrawn from his heat after a fuel line came loose, came from sixth to first in the B-Main (after surviving a tangle with John Walp as the cars were lining up), and then passed seven cars in the first three laps on the way to his hard-earned top-10 finish.

Bard’s win can only help his run for the 2020 IMCA/RaceSaver national championship. He went into the weekend with a 13-point lead over Nebraka’s Tyler Drueke. The points title is based on a driver’s best 20 finishes, and last weekend he extended the lead by a single point, even with a best finish of fourth. This is the final weekend for awarding points.

IMCA’s system awards points “bonuses” at the end, however, and the final results won’t be known until after that process.

Should Bard win, he will succeed Duke, the driver he passed for the lead Saturday, as champion. Duke last year became the first Pennsylvanian ever to win.

Bard had clinched the 2020 PASS championship already, and he holds a commanding lead over Walp in the Pennsylvania state points.

Saturday’s win was Bard’s eighth of the season in PASS and his 13th in 36 starts since joining the series last July. He also has multiple wins in the Laurel Highlands Sprint Series and the Allegheny Sprint Tour.

Davie Franek Wins First PST A Main in 2020At Penn Can, Dedicates Win To Late Pete Richardson; Matt Farnham Scores First Career Patriot Sprint Tour Win In The Second Event
Contact: Paul Harkenrider
PST Media
paul@patriotsprinttour.com
(Susquehanna, Pa) In what has been an extremely shortened season for the Patriot Sprint Tour, a familiar face made it back to victory lane at Penn Can Speedway. Davie Franek cashed in on his front row starting spot to take his tenth career PST A-Main win over Denny Peebles, Billy VanInwegen, Matt Farnham and Paulie Colagiovanni. This was the A Main that carried over from the August 28 rained out show.
It was a very slow start in the first A-Main with several cautions in the first half of the event. After 25 total minutes into the race, it was deemed that the race could not finish with the amount of fuel that was left for the remainder of the A. An eight-minute closed red was placed on the racetrack for fuel.
On the restart, the battle for positions two through four was a toss up, lap after lap between Denny Peebles, Billy VanInwegen, and Denny Peebles.
This would give Franek an advantage as he was able to space himself in the clean air form the remainder of the field. As the checkered flag waved, it was the 2019 series champion Davie Franek sitting in victory lane over Denny Peebles and Billy VanInwegen.
No one could match the 2019 series champion and he would cross the checkers first over Peebles, VanInwegen, Matt Farnham, and Paulie Colagiovanni. This was Franek’s tenth career PST sanctioned win which moves him to ninth all time in overall tour wins.
It was emotional victory lane as Franek pointed to the sky remembering one of his best friends at the race track, Pete Richardson who the racing community lost last month.
Heat race wins from the carried over event went too Franek, Chuck Hebing, and Dave Axton. Dallas Schott scored the Bonnell’s Dash for cash.
In the second event of the night, it was finally Matt Farnham’s night to shine scoring his first feature of his career in just his 12th start in a 360-sprint car.
Farnham started fourth and had his work cut out on him as he would trail the front row of Danny Varin and Kelly Hebing. Varin would take command early with Brett Wright, Kelly Hebing, and Farnham all vying for the top spot.
Farnham was able to maneuver the car wherever to push by Kelly Hebing and Brett Wright. This would allow Farnham to focus on tracking down the leader in Varin.
There were restarts on lap six and nine where Varin was able to maintain the race lead over the rest of the field. It was until a lap 12 restart that Farnham would take his car hard into the first corner pulling alongside Varin exiting two down the back stretch.
As the two would fly wing to wing into turn three, Varin was unable to protect his line from Farnham which allowed Farnham to pull away from the field.
For the remaining 12 laps, the Western NY driver was no match for anyone else and he would cruise for his first PST A- Main win of his career over Varin, Brett Wright, Scott Kreutter, and Kelly Hebing.
Heat race wins went too Farnham, Varin and for the first time in her career, Kelly Hebing. The Bonnell’s Rod Shop dash win went to Denny Peoples while the B Main win went too Dalton Herrick.
For the time being, there is no upcoming races for the 2020 season but please be sure to visit www. Pstriotsprinttour.com and to follow our social media pages, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter if another race is scheduled.

Gallagher and Rudolph Star in Applefest Finale At Tri-City Raceway Park

(Franklin, PA) A three-day event closed out the 2020 racing season at the Tri-City Raceway Park, with the Sunday, September 19th finale awarding huge paychecks to the winners in seven races for seven different divisions of race cars. A first time winner collected a $5,000 paycheck in the “Applefest Race Weekend” feature event for Shawgo Real Estate Sprint Cars, presented by Krill Recycling. Darin Gallagher earned his first career victory, at the top-level Sprint Car racing. In other action, New York resident Erik Rudolph won both the Big Block-engine Modifieds’ 30-lap feature race, and the Small Block-engine Modifieds’ feature race, taking a total of $8,000 back the Empire State. The Hovis Auto and Truck Supply Pro-Stock cars battled for 50 laps, with Chris Schneider earning another Tri-City win. The RUSH non-wing Sprint Cars competed in the Bruce Smith Construction 20-lap feature race, with Zach Morrow claiming the victory. The Crate-engine Modifieds’ 20-lap feature race was dominated by Jeff Schaffer, Jr., who was racing for the first time in two years. Pat Hanlon, II finished off a tough luck season with a big win the 4-Your-Car-Connection Mini Stock division of racing.
The Shawgo Real Estate Sprint Cars’ 30 lap race was led early on by pole position starter Jack Sodeman, Jr. Sodeman was carrying a six point advantage in the year-long point standings into the final race of the year. Sodeman, seeking a first Tri-City victory of the season, was leading the race over recent winner A.J. Flick. Darin Gallagher was holding the third position, as championship contender Brandon Spithaler was advancing through the field, after starting in seventh spot. Spithaler, second in the point standings to Sodeman, needed to finish four positions higher than Sodeman to tie for the Championship. But on lap nine, two-time winner Spithaler spun in turn one, while racing in second position to Sodeman. Spithaler had to restart from the tail of the field, as Sodeman remained in the top spot. On the restart, Gallagher darted from third place into the lead, with an impressive low-groove “slide job” pass in turn two. As Sodeman was falling back in the field, Spithaler was again marching toward the front. Spithaler climbed back into the top five, passing Sodeman among others. At one point in the race, Spithaler was ahead of Sodeman by just enough positions to earn the title. But, at the conclusion, Spithaler placed fifth, and Sodeman clinched the Championship with a seventh place finish. The title is Sodeman’s tenth-career track championship, but his first at Tri-City. In the closing laps, race leader Gallagher was challenged by Dan Shetler, repeatedly. Shetler, a former Sharon Speedway Champion, started in fourth place and caught, then passed Gallagher on lap 25. After a thrilling wheel-to-wheel battle for multiple laps, Gallagher re-claimed the lead with three laps remaining. Gallagher, a successful 305 Sprint Car division winner and Champion, moved up to (top level) 410 Sprint Car racing last year. After his Applefest preliminary heat race victory the night before, Gallagher started in third place and finished first, claiming the largest paycheck of the year, for his first-ever Sprint Car feature victory. Shetler crossed the finish line just four-tenths-of-a-second behind the young winner. Flick, two-time 2020 winner Carl Bowser, and Spithaler completed the top five in the official finish order. Gallagher was overcome with emotion, while standing next to his family-owned, Texas Roadhouse/Kozminski Auto Body/Shaner Automotive #12 car.
Bruce Smith Construction, of Franklin, PA sponsored the 20-lap feature race for the Pace Performance RUSH non-wing Sprint Cars.
The RUSH drivers were competing for Equipment Rental Options weekly series points. The race was completed without a caution flag, as Zach Morrow started from the pole position and grabbed the lead. Veteran Steve Pedley challenged Morrow early on – both drivers have been winners in 2020 at other tracks. Shawn Smith soon passed Pedley for second place. At times, Smith clocked lap times slightly faster than leader Morrow. Jeremy Weaver, the series points leader, took the green flag in seventh place and climbed into third position late in the race. When the event concluded the top five finishers were: Morrow, the series’ master of large tracks like Tri-City; Smith, a home track favorite; young Weaver; Pedley, and many time previous winner Gale Ruth, Jr.
Under the new ownership of Merle Black, the resurrected Tri-City Raceway Park had a successful 2020 racing season, after a late start due to pandemic restrictions. Plans are already underway for the 2021 season of “Sunday Thunder” dirt track racing action
 

 

Virginia Sprint Series Race #7

Rain Make Up and Race #8 IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Series Natural Bridge Speedway, Natural Bridge, Va. Jerald Harris Has Double Vision On the first clear cool night of the year Jerald Harris had a hot night on track getting double vision by taking both features. The first rain make up feature had Daren Bolac out first with the drop of the green and running smooth out front with Mike Leraas in tow. The twenty lap features were going by fast but the track was changing and Leraas was closing in with Mike Keeton and Jerald Harris catching up fast. Leraas got by to lead with Bolac still second but back of the field was coming in to the leaders path which was packing up the front. With the white flag waving Leraas and Bolac were still upfront on the lower side but Harris moved up and was gaining ground fast. Coming off turn four to the checkers the last car on the lead lap bobbled causing Leraas and Bolac to lift. Jerald Harris seized the moment to go high next to the wall and flashed in to the lead and under the checkered flag first all in a few hundred feet. At the line it was Jerald Harris, Mike Leraas, Daren Bolac, Mike Keeton, Bill Rice, Chris Ware, Matt Mullins, Billy Hubbard, Charlie Ware and Mike Cicchillo. After inverting the lead lap cars the second featured rolled to green with Matt Mullins out first and Mike Keeton right behind and Harris closing in already. Mike Keeton was leading but Harris was right there as the laps clicked away Harris was getting stronger. Jerald Harris moved to the front spot leaving Keeton to deal with a charging Mike Leraas after he got by Bill Rice. With laps running out nobody would catch Jerald Harris as Mike Leraas made it to second but would only stay there as Harris went under the checkered flag for the second time of the night. At the line it was Jerald Harris, Mike Leraas, Mike Keeton, Bill Rice, Daren Bolac, Matt Mullins, Chris Ware, Charlie Ware, Billy Hubbard and Mike Cicchillo. The VSS is off next week before heading to The Greater Cumberland Raceway in Cumberland, Maryland for a race with The Laurel Highlands Sprint Series on Saturday October3rd.

Hanson scores at The Grove

Sometimes a win is more than just a win:

- Like when the driver wins for the first time in more than five years and has only recently became a new father;

- Like when the owner wins for the first time in 44 years at the track and is in the pits on his stepson’s wedding weekend;

- Like when it all happens at Williams Grove Speedway.

Jaremi Hanson’s win at Williams Grove Speedway Friday night met all those criteria, leading to an outpouring of congratulations for him and car owner Rod Ort, also director of the PA Sprint Series.

Hanson’s National Energy of Gettysburg/Just for Jacks Home Construction/Whitehall Flyway Mini Cat #36 led all the way in the 20-lap feature, which followed the All Star Circuit of Champions race, fending off early challenges from fellow front-row starter John Walp and a late charge from defending IMCA/RaceSaver National Champion Ken Duke Jr.

Duke finished a close second, with Walp third, Derek Hauck fourth, and Dave Brown fifth.

Larry McVay, Erin Statler, Kassidy Kreitz; Tom Carberry and Austin Graby completed the top 10.

Hanson said in victory lane that he wasn’t nervous “at the beginning” about his prospects for a win (because he was starting on the pole), but the last restart with two laps remaining changed that.

“That last caution,” he said, “I saw the 67 (Duke) there, and I knew that, if I would have screwed up at all, he would have gone right by my there on the bottom, so a lot of pressure there.”

With his young daughter in attendance and his long victory drought ended, Hanson summed up his feelings:

“I’m in happy land right now.”

Car owner Ort was equally emotional.

“I think I’ve been coming here for almost 60 years,” he said, “because my parents brought me here when I was just a baby, and racing here since 1976, and wanted to win, just have never been able to get it done.”

Ort had come close as a driver himself and with others who had driven his car.

“I’m so thrilled that Jaremi finally pulled it off tonight – it’s unbelievable.”

Ort also noted the significance to any driver of winning at Williams Grove.

“I’ve seen so many people here win and wish it could be me, but I’ve always celebrated with them, because it feels so good to see other people win and reach their dreams, and to finally get it – especially here at the Grove with Jaremi – it’s definitely emotional. It’s as good as it gets.”

As good as the night was for Hanson and Ort, there was disappointment in the pit area afterward as well. National IMCA/RaceSaver points leader Garrett Bard was involved in a heat race incident and had to come from seventh starting position in his B-Main to earn a spot in the feature with a pass at the checkered flag. Then, he was the second car out of the feature.

On lap 14, Dustin Smith spun in turn two, did a 360, and kept going, but the bottleneck that created put Dustin Young in the inside backstretch wall.

The final caution, for Johnny Scarborough’s spin on lap 17, led to a restart that brought several cars together in turn two, ending Devon Adams’ night and causing others to lose multiple positions. The field remained under green, though, setting the stage for an exciting finish between Hanson and Duke.

Heat races for the 44-car field went to Duke, Jared Zionkowski, Kirsten Hess and Jacob McClain, who had come all the way from Hemby Bridge, N.C., for the race. A couple of red flags and several yellows interrupted the heat race action, but no injuries were reported from any of the incidents.

Domenic Melair and Landon Price won the twin B-Mains.

On a night with cold temperatures, a wind one All Star competitor said he thought would blow him over on the backstretch, and a difficult, slick track, there was still plenty of passing, and Austin Graby won the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic Hard Charger Award (and a new right rear tire), coming from 26th and last starting spot to 10th at the finish.

Tom Carberry and Dustin Smith each advanced 11 positions during the race, Erin Statler moved up 10 spots, Landon Price improved by 9, and Dave Brown and Kassidy Kreitz each came up eight spots.

Kaeding and Ballenger Enjoy Victories at Huset's Speedway During DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores Finale

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 19, 2020) - Tim Kaeding savored Victory Lane on Saturday evening at Huset's Speedway, where the California native recorded a feature triumph during the track's season finale along with Dusty Ballenger.

Kaeding completed approximately a half dozen donuts between turn four and the frontstretch as the crowd roared in appreciation. Kaeding then climbed on top of the rear of his winged sprint car, raising his arms in the air and exhaling a yell. After his race car was pushed into the designated area for the Victory Lane ceremony, Kaeding performed another wing dance that was followed by congratulatory handshakes and hugs from friends, fans and competitors.

Kaeding was just as intense on the high-banked oval, where he led the distance to capture the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series portion of the DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores. He was awarded a check for a whopping $10,000 for his feat.

"It's amazing," he said. "I felt like the old TK right there. Get up on the fence and run the living piss out of it."

Kaeding built more than a five-second lead before a caution on Lap 15 brought the field back together. He then had to hold off challenges from Midwest Power Series champion Justin Henderson and Friday night's feature winner Shane Golobic, who charged from 17th to second.

"Obviously we wanted to be one spot better, but I put our team in a hole in qualifying," Golobic said after his runner-up result. "Seventeenth to second is nothing to hang your head about. Hats off to TK. This was right up his alley."

Jack Dover, who claimed two of the four Midwest Sprint Touring Series wins at Huset's Speedway this year, rounded out the podium after starting ninth.

"I'm really happy with a third-place finish," he said. "Before we started the main we dropped a cylinder so we were on seven cylinders."

Trey Starks was the Hard Charger Award winner after rallying from 21 st to fourth and Clint Garner placed fifth.

A total of 48 drivers participated on Saturday with Starks and Matt Juhl setting quick time in their qualifying groups to kick off the competition. Davey Heskin, Kaeding, Garner and Lynton Jeffrey each won a heat race. Tommy Barber picked up the C Main victory and Starks captured the B Main triumph.

Ballenger led the entire 20-lap, $1,000-to-win RaceSaver sprints A Main, beating eighth-starting Tyler Drueke at the finish line by 0.760 of a second. The two drivers were nearly side by side as they exited turn four in traffic with a handful of laps remaining, but Ballenger's higher groove gave him the momentum needed to maintain the top spot. Drueke stayed within striking distance, but Ballenger made the right moves in traffic to score the win.

"I was just trying to get through lapped traffic the best I could," he said. "I have a bunch of kids on my crew (and) some old guys. I will tell you we're going to have a party tonight."

Stu Snyder rounded out the podium with Shon Pointer finishing fourth and Neil Nickolite fifth.

Nick Barger, Pointer, Jason Danley and Drueke were the heat race winners. Chris Thram won the B Main.

Josh Schneiderman Coasts to Sprint Invaders “Family” Win at Lee County Speedway!

(Bill W) Donnellson, IA, September 19, 2020 – The Schneiderman name is synonymous with racing in southeast Iowa, and it was Josh who emerged triumphant Saturday night with the Sprint Invaders at Lee County Speedway. The West Burlington native teamed with brother and crew chief, Jarred, to take the $2,000 score. It was Josh’s second win of the season and eighth in his career with the series, and his first at the 3/8-mile Lee County Speedway oval.

Schneiderman beat pole-sitter and series point leader, Chris Martin, to the punch at the outset, but the first seven laps were rocky for the field. Noah Samuel spun after a lap was completed, and then on the restart, Tyler Barrick’s spin collected Scotty Johnson.

Paul Nienhiser, driving car owner point leader Scott Bonar’s #50, took third from Kaley Gharst when the green finally flew and Dugan Thye advanced into the to five by lap three. Schneiderman was entering lapped traffic when Blaine Jamison suffered a flat right front tire four laps in. The restart saw a spin by Mitchell Alexander.

The next try at green had Christian Bowman get into Thye in a bid for the fifth spot. Thye hammered the wall, but was o.k. Another lap was complete before Wyatt Wilkerson took a wild ride over the turn one wall after contact with Brayden Gaylord.

After fuel was added to the remaining cars, the final 18 laps went non-stop. Schneiderman led Martin, Neinhiser, Gharst and Devin Kline back to green flag racing. Nienhiser got by Martin in a good battle for second before Schneiderman entered lapped traffic on lap eleven.

Schneiderman pulled away before being held up as traffic went three-wide in front of him. Nienhiser closed, but wasn’t able to make a serious challenge.

Schneiderman’s win came ahead of Nienhiser, Martin, Gharst and Bowman. Colton Fisher, Gaylord, Kline, hard-charger Cody Wehrle and Ryan Leavitt rounded out the top ten. Ausitn Miller, Gharst and Bowman won heat races. Nienhiser won the Dash. Wehrle flipped in his heat, but was o.k.

“There were a couple times where it was getting hairy getting through traffic,” said Schneiderman. “Those guys are racing hard too. We were able to pick our way through. The top was obviously the fast way around tonight. This place owes me a few! I’ve lost a lot of races here. We’ve led and had drivers spin in front of us…I’ve banged the wall. So to finally win one down here with my brother crew chiefing is really special. He’s been working hard all year and we’ve been competitive everywhere we go.”

“Traffic was probably going to have to help us,” said Nienhiser. “(Schneiderman) was really good in clean air. It almost did for a second. I had some good restarts where I had Chris cleared for second and the yellow would come out. I wish I would have had a shot at a slider on Josh on a restart, and race him a little bit. Overall, it was another good run with Scott (Bonar).”

“Paul is always really good here, at Burlington, and a lot of places,” said Martin. “He’s a friend of mine, and it was fun racing with him. We’re doing well with the driver points. Scott Bonar has us in the owner points. Hopefully, we can take a few notes here, find out what’s right and what’s wrong, and cash out on the big race next Saturday.”

The “Fall Haul” at 34 Raceway will pay $5,000 to the winner and carry several bonuses on Saturday, September 26. For more information on the Sprint Invaders, visit www.SprintInvaders.com or look us up on Facebook.

Zach Blurton Triumphs in DCRP’s Jerry Soderberg Memorial Again with Dakota Sproul, Brian May, Troy Burkhart and Tathan Burkhart Reach Victory Lane as Well!

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (September 19, 2020) – Zach Blurton added a fourth Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship win to his resume by topping Saturday night’s season-ending DCRP vs. URSS Sprint Car feature event atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval.

While Blurton scored his third consecutive win in the eighth rendition of the Soderberg Memorial Championship, Dakota Sproul and Tathan Burkhart put exclamation points on championship seasons with wins in the IMCA Modifieds and IMCA Hobby Stocks, respectively, with Brian May besting the IMCA Sport Modifieds and Troy Burkhart topping the IMCA Stock Cars.

In the 25-lap Hambelton Racing DCRP vs. United Rebel Sprint Series feature, fourth-starter Zach Blurton slid past Kyler Johnson on a lap three restart and led the rest of the way for his second DCRP win of the year and third consecutive win in the season-ender.

After an early red flag, Blurton weathered one more red flag seven laps shy of the checkered flag when Connor Atkinson flipped in turn two.

Blurton took off again on the restart and posted the win ahead of Johnson with Jeff Stasa, J.D. Johnson and Luke Cranston rounding out the top five while eighth-place finisher Taylor Velasquez secured his third track championship.

Dakota Sproul finished off his rookie campaign in the IMCA Modified ranks by racing to victory lane for the fifth time in seven tries to put the clamps on the season championship.

After starting ninth, Sproul wasted little time working his way into contention and then raced past Jesse Richter for the point on the fifth round. Sproul checked out over the remainder of the 19-lapper, racing to straightaway win ahead of Richter, Kale Beavers, Nick Link and Tracy Link.

On the heels of his first win during Labor Day Weekend action two weeks ago, Brian May struck again to take victory honors in the 19-lap IMCA Sport Modified feature.

May worked the top side to take the lead away from Bart Baker on the seventh round and then survived several side-by-side laps for the lead with Jeff Kaup to take the win. Kaup settled for second with Luke Stallbaumer, Kyle Wiens and Monty Nordyke rounding out the top five while Mike Appel used a tenth-place finish to seal the track championship.

Troy Burkhart wasted no time racing from third into the lead and paced the field throughout in the 19-lap IMCA Stock Car feature. Burkhart led the way to the stripe ahead of Gregg Schell with Chris Oliver securing the championship by filling out the podium in third.

Tathan Burkhart finished off the father-son act by winning the 19-lap IMCA Hobby Stock feature to secure the track title.

Burkart battled past Duane Wahrman prior to the midway point and led the rest of the way for his third DCRP win of the year ahead of Wahrman and Brett Copeland.

The DCRP season concludes with Sunday’s final round of action atop the 1/7-mile Little DCRP clay oval. The Micro Sprint and Kart card that offers free admission to the grandstands goes green at 4:00 p.m.

Foos breaks through for Fremont 410 win; Weaver gets 6th 305 victory; Valenti tames trucks
By Brian Liskai
FREMONT, Ohio - After a fantastic 2019 season that saw him claim a pair of championships, DJ Foos was struggling in 2020. But about a month ago he and the Burmeister Racing team started to gain momentum and it came to a head Saturday, Sept. 19 at Fremont Speedway as the Fremont, Ohio driver led all 30 laps to score his first win of the season on Pub 400 Night.
“Wrecks kept happening right in front of us and a million yellow flags and Cole (Macedo) is a gasser and I kept expecting a slider in one and two. I kept driving it in there harder and harder…I made so many mistakes there towards the end. There’s one thing I’ve learned this year…you can never take a win for granted. It feels so good to win,” said Foos in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.
“These guys on this team don’t give up. The Burmeisters have been doing this for 60 years and there’s a reason for it. I’m so grateful to be sitting in this car and race every weekend. Mikey, LJ, Rollie, Sharon, Justin….everyone does so much for us like Paul Kistler, Doug Berryman and all our great sponsors,” added Foos beside his Crown Battery,Vantage Branding, Kistler Engines, CR Juices, Berryman Shocks, Burmeister Trophy, The Jet Express, Minor Customs, Napa of Bryan, KS Sales & Service, Keizer Wheels, Dave Story Equipment #35.
Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver is having one of the greatest seasons in his long history of racing and he added to his accomplishments Saturday in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints. Weaver jumped into the lead at the drop of the green of the 25-lap feature from his outside front row starting spot and never looked back, claiming his sixth win of the season at “The Track That Action Built.” Weaver now has 13 total victories in 2020 including seven wins at Attica Raceway Park. Saturday’s triumph was the 57th of his career at Fremont and puts him seventh on the track’s all-time win list.
“Things are just going our way when it comes to pill draws. You keep putting me on the front row and it makes it hard to lose. I want to thank Pam and Steve Brown, Russ Adkins, definitely Bob Hampshire and Dave Rice,” said Weaver of his B&B Drain Service, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Seagate Sandblasting, Weaver Performance backed #1W.
In a caution filled – 10 yellow flags in 20 laps – Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature, Fostoria, Ohio’s Shawn Valenti took charge on lap seven, survived numerous restarts and drove to his fourth win of the season. It was Valenti’s 59th career win at Fremont putting him fifth on the track’s all-time win list, only one win away from tying John Ivy and Mark Keegan for third.
“To be up there in wins with those guys is pretty amazing. I have to thank the Babocks. When we unloaded this thing we weren’t that good and actually had to have some parts brought in and change a leaf spring that went bad. A pretty amazing group of guys with John Brooks and Chris…they bust their butts on this thing too,” said Valenti of his Best Performance Motorsports; A Plus Auto Center; Craig Miller Trucking; KS Sales & Service; Gressman Powersports; Dave Story Equipment, Speedways Bar and Grill backed #7B.
Foos and Trey Jacobs brought the field to green for the 30-lap Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint A-main with Foos gaining the advantage over Cole Macedo, Jacobs, Stuart Brubaker, RJ Jacobs, Dean Jacobs and TJ Michael. A caution on lap five kept the field close as Brubaker had moved into third.
Following back-to-back cautions on lap eight and nine, Foos got tremendous restarts and pulled away from Macedo who had his hands full with ninth starter Nate Dussel with Brubaker and Dean Jacobs battling for fourth.
Foos entered heavy lapped traffic at the half-way point and Macedo and Dussel closed with Dean Jacobs taking fourth. With 10 laps to go Foos made a fantastic move in lapped traffic and began to pull away until Josh Turner tipped over right in front of the entertaining battle for second involving Macedo, Dussel and Dean Jacobs.
After another caution on the ensuing restart, Foos pulled away again when the green reappeared but a caution with six laps remaining gave Macedo and Dussel another shot. Foos was too good when the green fell and he drove away to his 16th career victory at Fremont with Dussel taking second on the white flag lap. Macedo, Dean Jacobs and Brian Smith rounded out the top five.
Brandon Moore and Weaver paced the field for the 25 lap 305 A-main with Weaver taking the initial lead over Moore, Jamie Miller, Alvin Roepke, Kyle Capodice and Mike Keegan. A caution after two laps were scored slowed Weaver’s march to the checkers and when the green reappeared he drove away while Miller took second with Roepke taking third on lap five.
Weaver encountered heavy lapped traffic by lap eight but Miller could not close. A cation with 12 laps in put Miller and Roepke right on Weaver’s tail but the veteran again pulled away until another caution on lap 14.
When the green came back out Weaver built his lead once again as Miller and Roepke exchanged the runner-up spot lap after lap with Seth Schneider moving into fourth.
No one was going to catch Weaver as he drove to the win over Roepke, Miller, Schneider and Moore.
In the crash-filled dirt truck A-main, Cory McCaughey grabbed the lead at the drop of the green and maintained the top spot the first six circuits. Valenti used a restart to take the lead on lap seven and despite numerous cautions, would build big leads. A caution with three laps to go wiped out a nearly six second lead for Valenti.
Valenti would not be denied driving to the victory over McCaughey, Jamie Miller, Dana Fry and Kent Brewer.
It will be all sprint cars Saturday, Sept. 26 at Fremont Speedway as the FAST winged 410 sprints come to down along with the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) non-wing sprint cars and the 305 sprints.

DJ NETTO EARNS SECOND OCEAN SPRINTS WIN OF 2020 ON FRI IN WATSONVILLE

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (September 18, 2020) – 2019 King of the West champion DJ Netto drove to his second Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo victory of the season on Friday, taking the 30-lap feature over a 22-car field in Watsonville, Calif. The victory makes Netto only the second repeat winner during the eight rounds at the Ocean Speedway.

Washington’s JJ Hickle led time trials before Netto won the dash to earn the pole position for the feature. Points leader Bud Kaeding of San Jose led the opening lap on the outside of Netto. Netto then cut underneath Kaeding into turn three on the following lap to lead lap two.

The leaders approached lapped traffic by just the seventh lap of the race. The first caution fell on lap nine when Chase Johnson of Penngrove slowed with a problem on the right rear of his machine. He failed to return to the event.

Hickle and Redding’s Chase Majdic battled for fourth position behind the lead trio of Netto, Kaeding, and Hanford’s Mitchell Faccinto. 2019 USAC West Coast 360 champion Tristan Guardino stopped from a potential top-ten finish for a caution on lap 15 in car #15. Redding’s Max Mittry had advanced from 16th starting position to eighth by that stage of the event.

Netto never faced much scrutiny over the second half of the feature, keeping a lapped car or two between himself and Kaeding the rest of the way. Netto topped Kaeding by 2.329 seconds at the stripe followed by Faccinto, Majdic, and Hickle. The Ocean Sprints return on October 17th for the 60th running of the Johnny Key Classic.

The prelude to next weekend’s Pettit Shootout attracted great racing across the IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Mods, and Hobby Stocks.

In the IMCA Modifieds, Bobby Hogge IV of Salinas led the final 14 laps for the win. 2020 West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame inductee Jim Pettit II led lap one around the outside of Tim Balding. The Prunedale drivers battled for the lead with Balding taking over on lap three.

Pettit fell backwards to third on the outside, then spun for a caution on lap five. While spinning in turn three, he was hit hard by Robert Marsh of Salinas. Pettit managed to continue but Marsh was out of the race. Hogge used the restart to sweep past Balding for the lead on lap seven. Hogge, Balding, Oakley’s Troy Fougler, 2019 track champion Cody Burke, and Austin Burke were the top-five finishers.

Watsonville’s Adriane Frost took sole possession of the IMCA Sport Mod points lead with her first win of 2020 in the 20-lap event. Max Baggett of Prunedale led the first two circuits before Jim DiGiovanni grabbed hold of the lead. Baggett fell to fourth while DiGiovanni paced Frost and Atwater’s Tanner Thomas in a close duel for the win.

Frost tried low but eventually went upstairs. She went outside DiGiovanni on the backstretch and cleared him to lead lap 16. Frost then led the leaders through lapped traffic for the win. Thomas finished second followed by DiGiovanni, Santa Maria’s Markus Frazier, and Kelly Campanile of San Ramon.

Rob Gallaher of San Jose won his first Hobby Stock feature of the year by leading all 20-laps. The win was anything but easy, however. After a caution involving Ken Winland of Santa Clara, things tightened up at the front. Gallaher anchored a race long, two-by-two battle, which included points leader Joe Gallaher, Watsonville’s Jerry Skelton, and second in points Steve Remde - also of Watsonville.

The foursome finally spread out within the final five laps of the contest, with Rob Gallaher topping Skelton, Joe Gallaher, Remde, and Sam Kennedy at the finish.

Ryan McClelland of Scotts Valley went for four in the Four Banger division, as the points leader drove from the rear of the field to win his fourth feature of the year. McClelland started tenth in the 15 lapper while outside pole sitter Nate Hart of Aptos led the way early. 2019 Police-In-Pursuit champion Roy Iller battled with Hart, including a moment when Iller t-boned Hart in turn four. Hart saved it and kept the lead.

McClelland looked inside Hart to take the lead on the backstretch on lap ten. Hart, Iller, Tony Gullo, and 2019 champion Nicole Beardsley followed McClelland at the finish.

10th Annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Wheatland, MO. (09/17/2020) Kicking off one of the largest open-wheel spectacles of the season for the POWRi Lucas Oil Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League, night one of three for the 10th Annual Jesse Hockett Daniel McMillin Memorial would see 64 competitors file into Lucas Oil Speedway with hopes of glory and side-by-side racing on the mind. After a multitude of early racing action accomplishments that would help to set the feature lineup, outstanding on-track action would witness Mario Clouser reign supreme by leading wire-to-wire and winning the night while setting themselves up nicely for the remaining weekend of racing.

B-Feature action would we won by RJ Johnson, Landon Simon, and Riley Kreisel with the top-two finishers from each advancing on into the twenty-five-lap main event for Night One of the 10th Annual Jesse Hockett Daniel McMillin Memorial.

The "Diamond if the Dirt Tracks" would be in fine form as twenty-three POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League competitors would pace the circuit for twenty-five revolutions with Garrett Aitken and Mario Clouser pacing the field on the initial green-flag launch. Battling into the first corners, #6 Mario Clouser would edge out #32 Garrett Aitken to the preferred running line. Emerging the leader off the exit of turn two on the opening lap, Clouser would take the point and never relinquish the top spot en route to earning the feature victory.

Phenomenal on-track action would follow the leader Clouser, as #37 Brian Beebe and #24lcr Chris Morgan would fly through the field and into the podium placements. Beebe and Morgan would both advance ten positions throughout the racing with Beebe edging out Morgan in the closing laps to place second leaving Morgan to third.

In the hunt upfront all feature #31 Joe B. Miller would find speed throughout the night placing in a solid fourth as #11w Wyatt Burks rounded out the top five finishers for the feature event on Night One of the JHDMM.

Mario Clouser Maneuvers to Night One Victory at the
10th Annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Wheatland, MO. (09/17/2020) Kicking off one of the largest open-wheel spectacles of the season for the POWRi Lucas Oil Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League, night one of three for the 10th Annual Jesse Hockett Daniel McMillin Memorial would see 64 competitors file into Lucas Oil Speedway with hopes of glory and side-by-side racing on the mind. After a multitude of early racing action accomplishments that would help to set the feature lineup, outstanding on-track action would witness Mario Clouser reign supreme by leading wire-to-wire and winning the night while setting themselves up nicely for the remaining weekend of racing.

With a near record-setting number of entrants seven heat races were required with Garrett Aitken, Noah Gass, Mario Clouser, Steve Thomas, Trey Gropp, Wyatt Burks, and Anthony Nicholson all claiming the early victories. As the top forty in passing points from the heat races would move into four qualifiers; Kory Schudy, Garrett Aitken, Anthony Nicholson, and Brian Beebe would each win their qualifiers. The top sixteen in passing points would lock-in to the feature event with the remaining field falling into three semi-feature events. B-Feature action would we won by RJ Johnson, Landon Simon, and Riley Kreisel with the top-two finishers from each advancing on into the twenty-five-lap main event for Night One of the 10th Annual Jesse Hockett Daniel McMillin Memorial.

The "Diamond if the Dirt Tracks" would be in fine form as twenty-three POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League competitors would pace the circuit for twenty-five revolutions with Garrett Aitken and Mario Clouser pacing the field on the initial green-flag launch. Battling into the first corners, #6 Mario Clouser would edge out #32 Garrett Aitken to the preferred running line. Emerging the leader off the exit of turn two on the opening lap, Clouser would take the point and never relinquish the top spot en route to earning the feature victory.

Phenomenal on-track action would follow the leader Clouser, as #37 Brian Beebe and #24lcr Chris Morgan would fly through the field and into the podium placements. Beebe and Morgan would both advance ten positions throughout the racing with Beebe edging out Morgan in the closing laps to place second leaving Morgan to third.

In the hunt upfront all feature #31 Joe B. Miller would find speed throughout the night placing in a solid fourth as #11w Wyatt Burks rounded out the top five finishers for the feature event on Night One of the JHDMM.

Smith, Clouser earn opening-night Hockett-McMillin Memorial victories at Lucas Oil Speedway
 


WHEATLAND, MO. (Sept. 18, 2020) - Mark Smith and Mario Clouser landed opening-round victories Thursday night at the 10th annual Jesse Hockett-Daniel McMillin Memorial.

Smith held on in a frantic finish to earn the Lucas Oil ASCS Winged Sprint car feature win while Clouser led all the way for the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR wingless victory.

A total of 141 cars - 77 ASCS Winged and 64 POWRi WAR wingless sprints - checked into the pits for Night 1 of the three-night event honoring sprint-car champion Hockett, who died in a shop accident in 2010, and his cousin and crew chief Daniel McMillin, who died in an auto accident in 2006.

Round two is set for Friday night, with drivers collecting points to help set the field for Saturday's finale.

Smith, runner-up in the big finale of last year’s Hockett-McMillin Memorial, served notice that he will be a contender for the $10,000 final-night prize. The Sudbury, Pennsylvania driver picked up $3,000 on Thursday.

Starting the feature in fifth, Smith grabbed the lead on lap nine and cleverly worked through lapped traffic to open a two-second lead. But he had to hold off a charge from eighth-starting Mallett, who gradually cut into the gap and made it a dramatic finish.

But Smith was able to hang on by .342 seconds - or about two car lengths - to claim his 18th feature win of 2020.

“I saw somebody’s tire down there,” Smith said of the last lap challenge from Mallett. “But there ain’t much you can do on this type of race track unless you take somebody out and Jordon is a pretty good driver and he wouldn’t do something like that.

“It’s a pretty good haul to get out here. I’ve been hanging out in Mississippi to just hit this race this week. Hopefully we can keep this roll going. It’s really been great. Any time you win it’s good. There’s a lot of luck involved. We’re just lucky to have the opportunities that we do.”

Mallett said he thought he had a superior car over the final laps, but said the slick conditions made it difficult to get around the leader.

“We were definitely better at the end, but when it gets rubbered down it gets pretty narrow and tough to pass,” Mallett said. “We were good. I can’t thank everybody enough, all these people who make this deal happen.

“We’ll come back and try to be one spot better. I’m pretty disappointed with second, but you can’t hang you (head) when there’s (77) cars in the pits.”

Scott Borgucki finished third with ASCS points leader Sam Hafertepe fourth and Dylan Westbrook winding up fifth.

Clouser takes WAR feature: Mario Clouser of Chatham, Illinois, led all 25 laps to capture the opener of the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints of the Hockett-McMillin Memorial. He picked up $1,500 and valuable points toward Saturday's action.

“It’s great to start off the weekend with a win, for sure,” Clouser said. “Knowing you’re coming back for two more nights, we get to take everything we learned tonight and hopefully transfer it to the rest of the weekend.”

Clouser had a 2.6-second lead over Brian Beebe when a caution flew on lap 19. Fifth-place Justin Zimmerman spun on the backstretch, after contact with another car, to bring out the second caution of the event.

Until that point, Clouser had parlayed his front-row starting position into a dominating run as he led every lap. Beebe, meanwhile, had moved from 12th at the start and into the top three by lap six and he passed Joe B. Miller on lap 16 to take over the runner-up position.

On the restart, both Beebe and Miller tested Clouser making it three-wide briefly. But Clouser was able to hold onto the lead and pull away, winning by 2.5 seconds at the finish over Beebe, of Oak Grove, Missouri.

Chris Morgan finished third with Miller fourth and Wyatt Burks fifth. WAR points leader Riley Kreisel wound up ninth.

Clouser said navigating the slick track condition was key.

“It was clear it was going to be slick, from the start, so I knew I had to be patient,” Clouser said. “I kind of thought there might be something on the top there early, but I didn’t want to move up there and just give away the bottom.

“With the restart with five to go, it looked like it was starting to take rubber there in three and four, but again I didn’t want to give up a line that had been working. After a lap of those cars showing me their nose we were able to move down and kind of pull away a little bit.”

Sucich Caps Skagit Season with 360 Win, Goetz - Holtrop - Young Crowned Champions

9/17/20

Alger, WA - The finale of the 2020 on Skagit Speedway TV saw Bailey Sucich win her first career Budweiser 360 Sprint Car main event, besting Jason Solwold in the late stages of the race for the $2,600 top prize. Season champions were crowned on the night as well, with Chase Goetz, Adam Holtrop and Rick Young all winning track titles.

Corbyn Fauver set out to the early advantage in the 25 lap Budweiser 360 Sprint A Main, with Sucich never too far off. As Fauver approached the tail end of the field, Sucich was right there to pressure him, forcing Corbyn to move around search for a clean line through traffic. With a fast racing surface, the tail end of the field was difficult to navigate, with lap times only falling off a little through the full field of cars. Fauver would try to sneak around the high side of turns one and two, and that’s where Bailey pounced, moving inside Fauver to take the top spot on the completion of lap 13 and bringing third place running Trey Starks with her. Entering turn one, the now second place running Starks and Fauver made contact, sending both spinning and bringing out the only yellow flag of the main. Bailey now had Jason Solwold and Chance Crum stacked up behind her for the restart, where she began building up her lead in clean air. Slower traffic loomed in the form of Michael Millard around lap 20, and while Bailey moved around to try and find a way past Michael, Solwold found rhythm down low, sneaking past Bailey for the lead on lap 22. Sucich rebounded by making a strong move on the high side of turns one and two on lap twenty three, repassing Solwold and lapping Millard in the process. Two short laps later and the biggest Skagit Speedway payday of 2020 went to Bailey, with Solwold second and Crum third. Cam Smith entered the main trailing Chase Goetz by thirty points in the driver standings, and his hard charging effort of 13th to 8th earned him bonus money, but not enough points to take the title from Goetz, who would win his first Sprint Car championship at Skagit Speedway to go with a Focus Midget title. Smith’s effort was good enough to propel Dave Smith Motorsports to the owner’s title ahead of Roger Oudman, Goetz’s car owner. Earlier in the evening, the 28 car field of 360s blistered the previous track record held by Seth Bergman, with ten drivers coming in under the previous mark of 11.253 seconds. Trey Starks ended up with the new mark at a lap of 11.085. Heat winners were Colton Heath, Greg Hamilton and Eric Fisher.

Similar to their heat race earlier in the night, Mike Steltz and Paul Rea did battle in the 25 lap Skagit Aggregates Modifieds main event. Rea led lap one before Steltz got him for the lead on lap two and led a huge chunk of the race with Paul no further than half a car length back. On lap 22, Steltz took a wide entry into turn one which let Rea make a strong bid to the inside of him. As the pair raced down the back stretch, Rea took the top spot for good and in his first Skagit appearance, secured the win. Scott Miller snuck by Steltz late for second place. Adam Holtrop completed a childhood dream in the main event, as his fifth place effort was strong enough to secure him the track championship over Craig Moore and Ben Gunderson. Heat race winners were Tyson Blood, Guunderson and Steltz.

The Outlaw Tuner championship was decided coming into the night, with Rick Young merely needing to show up to secure the title. With the title in hand, Rick did his best to try and cap the year off with a win, but would settle for second place behind Clint Meins, who was too strong on the night in getting his only victory of 2020. Last year’s champion Howard Vos ran third on the night.

Randy Martin Cashes in $2,500 with Sprint Invaders Win at Moberly!

(Bill W) Moberly, MO, September 13, 2020 – Who says old tricks don’t work? Randy Martin utilized one of his old setups to capture the Sprint Invaders feature Sunday night at Randolph County Raceway near Moberly, Missouri. Thanks to Tony Stuart of The Stuart House, the event paid $2,500 to win. It was the veteran’s fifth career feature win with the Sprint Invaders series.

Martin led early in the 20-lap feature over Ayrton Gennetten, who not only had picked up two wins with the Sprint Invaders on the 4/10-mile high banks in 2020, but also was aboard series owner points leader Scott Bonar’s #50. ASCS visitor Harli White settled into third, while first-time Sprint Invaders competitor, Devon Borden, roared up on the high banks in his first visit to the track, from tenth to fourth within two laps.

Braydn Greubel spun two laps in, setting up a restart. Borden performed a slide job on White to take over third when the green fell again. The leaders were in lapped traffic by the sixth circuit, but Borden’s podium run hopes came to an end when he tagged the turn three wall eight laps in.

Martin led Gennetten, White, Austin Alumbaugh and Robbie Price back to green flag racing, but it was short-lived when contact from another car sent driver point leader and seventh place running Chris Martin upside down in turn two. He was uninjured.

Price snatched fourth from Alumbaugh on the restart. Up front, Gennetten put the pressure on the leader as the pair entered lappers with five to go with White not far behind. However, White’s run would end when she suffered a tie rod issue in the front end, and retired.

The four-lap dash to the finish saw Martin (with a broken nose wing) hold off Gennetten, while Alumbaugh and Price traded the third spot. Price would gain it for good at the white flag, and Alumbaugh and Riley Goodno would trail him to the checkers. Kaley Gharst, Caleb Thornhill, Cody Wehrle, Wyatt Wilkerson and Colton Fisher would round out the top ten. Fisher, Gennetten and Chris Martin won heats. Alumbaugh won the Dash.

“It’s been a jacked up year with everything that’s been going on,” said Martin afterwards. “I think this was only my twelfth race this year. We come up here with a setup I run here years ago, and we thought we’d try it. We were decent all night. We made some changes for the feature, and starting on the front row definitely helps. Ayrton is the man to beat up here right now, and to outrun him is a pretty good accomplishment for a 60 year old man! The nose wing broke with three or four to go, and it was a handful. It hung on long enough, and it all worked out.”

“I stumbled my motor at the start and (Martin) got in front of me,” said Gennetten. “I think it was the deciding factor. We never really got to race in lapped traffic. He and I were pretty much the fastest two out there. I have to thank Scott for giving me the opportunity to drive tonight. I’ve been bugging him for four years, and he finally let me do it. I think we were fast enough, but the yellows didn’t play in our favor. One mistake on my part, and that was the difference. It was really a good race with Randy.”

“This place is fast,” said Moberly first timer Price. “It was tough to move around with the lapped cars, but we came from (seventh) to finish third. We were good. We tried something different. That’s what we were trying to do is learn. We tried some things we’ve never tried before.”

Saturday’s rained out event at Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa will be made up this Saturday, September 19. The “Fall Haul” at 34 Raceway will pay $5,000 to the winner and hold several bonuses for drivers on Saturday, September 26.

PIRTEK UMSS Traditional Sprints

The PIRTEK UMSS Traditional Sprints would see 21 cars come through the gate for Friday night racing at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, WI. Two action packed heat races and a feature were on tap for the evening.

Ryan Bowers and Jake Kouba would win the heat races landing them in the redraw for the feature but it would be an all Kouba front row to start the feature. The Koubas would lead the 21 car field to green, but it was the 16 car of Bowers providing the excitement as he splits the middle to go from 6th to 3rd. While Bowers is working on the 2K of Jimmy Kouba for 2nd the 6 of Jake Kouba would pull away for some breathing room. A caution would come out with 6 laps to go for the cloud of smoke coming from the 12X of Anderson bunching the field back up for a restart. Once again it would be the Koubas up front with Bowers, Kerzman and the 93 of Peterson restarting in the top 5. With just 2 laps to go Bowers would pull the slider to move into 2nd. Jake Kouba would get the checkers and head to Rock Auto Victory lane.

Results: Heat 1 -Bowers, Schafer, Lewerer, DaRonco, Kerzman, Mueller, Cunningham, Hanson, Widdes, Reding, Stettner(DNF)

Heat 2 - Jake Kouba, Jimmy Kouba, Peterson, Brandt, Roach, Anderson, Stordahl, Buck, Vogel, Vadnais (DNF)

Feature - Jake Kouba, Bowers, Jimmy Kouba, Kerzman, Peterson, DaRonco, Brandt, Mueller, Lewerer, Rocah, Cunningham, Buck, Vadnais, Widdes, Vogel, Reding, Anderson (DNF), Stordahl(DNF), Stettner (DNF), Schafer (DNF), Hanson (DNF)

 

Saturday evening was the premier all sprint car event the Jerry Richert Memorial race featuring the PIRTEK UMSS Traditional Sprints, the MPS 360 Sprints and the IRA 410 sprints.

Cam Schafer, Jake Kouba and Ryan Bowers would win the heat races. The main event could have been called the Bowers and DaRonco show, while there was some great racing from 3rd thru 10th it was hard to pay attention with all of the moves being made up front. From the drop of the green flag it was all Nick DaRonco with the early lead and Ryan Bowers a close 2nd. These drivers were pulling sliders and throwing those cars in deep to switch positions on 7 different occasions in 20 laps. It was with 7 to go the 8 and 16 car came across the line nose to nose. In the end it would be Bowers taking the top spot in this very special race and making his way to Rock Auto Victory Lane aboard the Fire Departments on track vehicle after Jimmy Kouba broke on the back stretch during the cool down lap collecting Bowers.

Results: Heat 1 - Schafer, Jimmy Kouba, Hanson, Mueller, Roach, Stettner, Vadnais, Widdes

Heat 2 - Jake Kouba, Parsons, Peterson, Lewerer, Kerzman, Vogel, Wass

DUNCAN BECOMES 4TH DIFFERENT "410" SPRINT WINNER IN 4 SHARON RACES; SCHNEIDER POCKETS $2000 FOR PENN-OHIO STOCK WIN; DOUBLE ENDS 6-YEAR WINLESS DROUGHT WITH HUGE $2300+ "KYLE MILLER MEMORIAL" ELITE ECONO MOD VICTORY; WIN #2 FOR WOLBERT IN RUSH MODS

Hartford, OH September 12, 2020 After returning to racing on Friday night following a two-month layoff due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions set forth by the Ohio Department of Health, Sharon Speedway wrapped up the annual "Apple Festival Nationals" on Saturday night. Celebrating in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane were Cole Duncan-"410" Sprint Cars, Chris Schneider-Penn-Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series, Jeremy Double-"Kyle Miller Memorial" for the Elite Econo Mod Series, and Chas Wolbert-HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. The four-division program attracted 125 racers as a total of 190 overall participated amongst the seven divisions in two days.

Central Ohio invader Cole Duncan has taken a liking to the red clay surface at Sharon Speedway. Duncan raced from the fourth starting spot to the lead on lap 19 passing Dan Kuriger and kept Lee Jacobs at bay over the final five laps to capture the $3,000 "410" Sprint Car feature win. Duncan became the fourth different winner in four races this year with his third career win- all coming since opening night 2019 in a limited number of starts.

"This place is so cool- every time we come here it never disappoints," expressed the 28-year-old Circleville, Ohio driver. "It's a really fun race track. We were really, really good early. Kuriger was really good too, but I felt like I could start rolling the middle and that's where I got him in lapped traffic. I think he was actually better in open track. Then when I got the lead, I didn't feel as good after those restarts not having as much grip in turns three and four so I was hoping those guys wouldn't be searching around. I felt them there and knew I had to go as hard as I could and keep the tires under me. You look up and see Lee there- he's been doing this quite awhile and there's a lot of tradition in the Jacobs Family. It's good to race with those guys. I'm glad there was a good field of cars as it makes it more special."

Kuriger used the topside of the speedway to race to the early lead over former track champion Jack Sodeman, Jr. with Duncan advancing to third. Duncan raced hard with Sodeman in a side-by-side battle for second on lap three. Meanwhile, Kuriger caught lapped traffic on lap five and by lap seven it was a four-car race for the lead with Brandon Spithaler joining in. Duncan finally was able to make the pass for second stick driving under Sodeman in turns one and two on lap 10.

Kuriger dealt with heavy lapped traffic on lap 14 as Duncan was on the prowl; meanwhile, it was a three-car race now for third as Sodeman had his hands full with Spithaler and Carl Bowser. Bowser was on the move as he took fourth from Spithaler on lap 15 and one lap later grabbed third from Sodeman. Back up front, Duncan caught Kuriger and the two raced side-by-side for the lead on lap 16. Kuriger was doing a nice job in traffic, but on lap 19 Duncan performed the same move in turns one and two that he did on Sodeman for second, but this time for the lead.

After 20 non-stop laps to start the feature, Logan McCandless spun to bring out the caution. One more lap was scored before Frankie Nervo got upside down in turn three. He was okay. Before the stoppages, seventh starting Jacobs was on the charge moving into the top five. Jacobs then took fourth on the restart. On lap 23, Bowser and Jacobs moved past Kuriger for second and third. After racing from 16th to fifth, George Hobaugh caught an infield tire and turned his car on its side to bring out the event's final stoppage with 24 laps scored.

When racing resumed on lap 25, Jacobs overtook Bowser for second. Jacobs went after Duncan, and cut into the deficit but Duncan had enough to withstand Jacobs' charge taking the victory by just 0.698 of a second in his Ohio Heating/Helms Construction/Motor City/I.S.P.C./Wolf Composites-sponsored #22. Bowser was third. Dan Shetler came on late to finish fourth after starting 12th. Spithaler was fifth. After leading the first 18 laps, Kuriger dropped to sixth over Sodeman, Ricky Peterson, Brandon Matus from 17th, and Adam Kekich from 24th. Henry Malcuit set fast time overall in qualifying with a lap of 13.868. Heat winners over the 26-car field were Nervo, Malcuit, and Spithaler.

Chris Schneider has never been a full-time weekly competitor at Sharon Speedway, but when the #55 shows up he's generally the car beat taking numerous high dollar Stock Car wins over the years. On Saturday night, Schneider started seventh, passed Curt J. Bish on lap 15, and went mostly unchallenged over the remaining laps to capture the $2,000 payday for the Penn-Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series. Twenty-seven cars started the 25-lap feature, which went non-stop in 8:20.450.

"We have Sharon dialed in," stated the 41-year-old Lower Burrell, Pa. standout. "This is my favorite place to race. The surface is great, the facility is great, the management is great; we just love it here. I felt I could run anywhere on the race track, but once I got the lead I kind of just stuck on the inside. I didn't see anyone poking around on the outside, but I think I could have run middle to high; the car felt like it could go anywhere. I want to thank Penn-Ohio for keeping this Series going, the track management for keeping the track going, and all of the fans for coming out to see us."

>From the pole position, Leigh Wheeler set the pace for the first three laps before Bish took over. Schneider was already up to third on lap five taking the spot from Randy Wyant, and two laps later grabbed second from Wheeler. Schneider found himself a half-straightaway behind leader Bish, but was able to methodically track him down. He caught him in lapped traffic on lap 15 and made the winning move that same very same lap. Bish stayed within striking distance until hitting an infield tire late allowing Schneider to pull away by a winning margin of 1.237 seconds.

Schneider's 13th career Sharon win came in the Nick Chevrolet/It's All Clean Pressure Washing/SS Chassis/Hot Dog Guys-sponsored #55. Bish, who won last year's $10,000 "Steel Valley Pro Stock Nationals", earned $1,000 for second. Wyant was third over Chris McGuire. After getting up to third on lap 14 and was on the charge, Alan Dellinger faded to fifth at the finish. Completing the top 10 were Noah Brunell, Shaun Hooks, Curt Bish, Jr., Corey McPherson, and Jackson Humanic. Winning Friday night's heat races over the 43-car field were McGuire, Bobby Whitling, Brunell, Dellinger, and Schneider. The last chance B mains went to Andrew Gordon and Jamie Barber.

Alan Dellinger and Ty Rhoades led the 25-lap "Kyle Miller Memorial" for the Elite Econo Mod Series to green, but the front row starters suffered major terminal issues on lap three, which allowed fourth starting Jeremy Double to fly into the lead. Double would then survive nine restarts to end nearly a six-year winless drought with his first win on the red clay surface at Sharon. Double's last win came back on September 20, 2014. Double biggest career victory was worth well over $2,300 after bonuses were paid!

"Ty (Rhoades) blew up and it would have been good to get team cars one-two so that sucks to see him not finish but it worked out for me so I'm definitely happy about that," explained the 24-year-old Bristolville, Ohio resident. "The track is awesome. I'm so happy to finally win here once they got the red clay. If I didn't win tonight it was going to be six years without winning a race. I have to thank Josh Christopher for everything he has done for this Series to get us races like this; it's really cool for this division. My mom and dad are in Tennessee now so they don't get to come and watch the races anymore and that's disappointing. I'm sure my dad watched Race Monitor so he's probably pretty pumped at home."

Other than the long green flag run between laps 10-22 when Double had stretched his lead out importantly leading lap 15 for a $515 bonus, he had Coleton Longwell, Nate Young, and 2019 track champion Dustin DeMattia all over him throughout the nine restarts over the course of the final 21 laps. In fact, Longwell actually took the lead on one of the late race restarts only to have a caution negate the pass.

Despite six years between victories, Double's $1,515 base win in his Honey Lab/Basich Racing Fuels/Wedge Motorsports/2 Brothers Motorsports/Russ King Racing/Mahan Welding & Fab/King Bros.-sponsored #83 was still the 14th of his career good enough for third on the all-time win list now just one behind Steve Haefke.

Longwell's second was his best ever finish at Sharon. Young started third and finished third. DeMattia, who won on opening night back on June 27, was fourth. Andy Buckley raced from 11th to fifth. Completing the top 10 were Matt Alexander, Kyle Layton, Russ Dunn, Bob Vogt, Jr., and Chris Schneider, who did double duty. Winning Friday's $100 heat races were Double, Young, Rhoades, and Dellinger over the 32-car field. George Vestal IV won the last chance B main and earned $50.

Chas Wolbert brought down the curtain on the 2020 "Apple Festival Nationals" winning his biggest race of the year worth $800 in the 20-lap HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modified feature part of the "Route 7 Rumble" Series presented by Wedge Motorsports. Wolbert's second Sharon victory of the year allowed him to maintain his lead in the Pace Performance RUSH Weekly Series Championship standings.

"We're blessed to be here at Sharon Speedway," expressed the 26-year-old Warren, Ohio winner. "You appreciate things a lot more when you don't have them. I want to thank all of the fans because I know the drivers are excited to be here for two nights. I have to thank God because without him none of us would be here. I want to thank the RUSH Series for having us here along with Dave Willoughby of Sharon Speedway- all of the crew here is great. I want to thank my dad, wife, all my crew guys, and all of my sponsors."

Rob Kristyak powered around Josh Deems to lead the opening lap. It was three-wide for the lead on laps two and three with Kristyak, Deems, and Wolbert battling it out. Wolbert made a great move going through the middle for the winning move on the third lap before a caution for Ayden Cipriano. Two more cautions were all that slowed Wolbert from his all-time division leading 15th career Sharon win in his Alcon Mechanical/Dunkin Donuts of Warren, OH/C.T. Wolbert Trucking/Walters Building Co./Ohio Intra Express/Russ King Racing/Sawtelle Tree-sponsored #c3.

While Wolbert was not seriously challenged, the racing from second through sixth was tremendous as there were numerous position changes. After a third place finish on Friday night, Deems did one better on Saturday night taking home the runner-up spot. Two-time track champion, Kole Holden, had raced from sixth to third in six laps only to lose the spot for good on lap eight to Kristyak, who recorded his second podium finish in as many nights.

Holden was fourth over 11th starting Jim Rasey. Rounding out the top 10 were Eric Gabany, D.J. Schrader, Jacob Wolfe, Tony Tatgenhorst, and Brandon Ritchey. Heat race winners over the 24-car field were Holden, Jordan, Cipriano. A total of 29 different RUSH Sportsman Modifieds competed over the two days. Special thanks to Alcon Mechanical, C&R Tire, Jerry Rents, Ohio Intra Express, and T&C Automotive for the sponsorship to allow the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds to have a complete show on Friday night as well.

Gerster Rules David D. Mateer Memorial At Jennerstown

JENNERSTOWN, Pa. – (Sept. 12, 2020) With the COVID-19 pandemic drastically shortening the season for the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series presented by Engine Pro, Brian Gerster was worried about being shut out of victory lane.

After Saturday night at Jennerstown Speedway, Gerster can throw those worries out the window.

Gerster steered the familiar Dick Myers-owned, MOPAR-powered No. 50m sprinter to a convincing victory in the American Racer David D. Mateer Tribute Race presented by Allied Milk Producers, taking the lead with 13 to go in the 30-lapper and holding on through a green-white-checkered restart.

Though tire problems for Troy DeCaire necessitated a caution with two laps to go, Gerster got the power down when the green flag waved for the final time, driving away from longtime rival Jimmy McCune to a .846-second victory.

It marked the 24th series win for Gerster, second only to McCune’s 34, and the Fishers, Ind., native was uncharacteristically excited when he climbed out of his car on the frontstretch to celebrate.

“How about that?!” Gerster cheered after celebrating atop the wing. “It’s awesome to win here tonight. 2020 has been a crappy year, but this is a great facility and man, I love coming here. We had a great run going at the (Little) 500 last week and weren’t able to finish it off … so it’s really nice to get the win.

“We’re not going to get skunked here, even in a short year for us.”

Gerster’s winning pass came on lap 18, when he pitched his car to the apron of the third turn in a monstrous divebomb on McCune. It was set up two laps earlier by a caution for debris in turn four.

He never gave up command of the race from there, despite the misfortune for DeCaire on lap 28 that led to the final two-lap dash to the checkered flag.

“That pass we made was a credit to the guys who work on this race car,” Gerster noted. “Jimmy was running a bit wider line than I was, and you can’t follow someone in these cars and be in their dirty air. I just had to go down and try to get some clean air, and I made it work.”

McCune took the lead from the outset, driving past polesitter Charlie Schultz by the exit of turn two as Schultz free-fell to fifth before the end of the opening lap.

An early caution developed on lap five, after Steve Surniak slowed with a flat right-rear tire, but McCune controlled the restart and pulled away before a second yellow waved on lap 10 for the stalled car of Kevin Feeney on the backstretch.

McCune retained command through the halfway point, but the lap-16 debris caution worked against him and gave Gerster a chance, which the wily Hoosier didn’t squander in the slightest.

That left McCune to finish a frustrating second, one month after winning at Lorain County Speedway.

“I didn’t want to see any of those cautions, but that’s the nature of the beast sometimes,” McCune said. “We held them off as long as we could. I’m not a fan of the double-file restarts, but it is what it is.

“We started the night with a blown motor, and we finished on the frontstretch with a runner-up. We’ll take it after working our tails off to change the engine; I’m pretty pleased with it.”

Joe Liguori completed the podium, followed by Anthony McCune, who crossed fourth and maintained the championship lead by a single point over his uncle, Jimmy McCune.

Schultz faded to fifth, followed by fast qualifier Troy DeCaire and rookie Nolan Allison, who came home an impressive seventh in his Must See Racing debut. It was also Allison’s first start in a 410 sprint car.

In a field as deep as the one on display at Jennerstown Saturday night, Gerster was quick to savor the moment, capping his party in the winner’s circle with a swig of Allied Milk Producers chocolate milk.

“The McCune cars are always fast; Jimmy did a good job tonight, and (Troy) DeCaire did a good job all night as well. Fortunately we finally got the job done,” Gerster noted. “It’s fun racing with those guys and I’m glad to get the win. We’re lucky.”

McIntosh Dominates at Port City Back in the Family Owned Car

Belleville, IL. (09/13/2020) The POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League took a visit to Port City Raceway, and after a dominating 25 laps Cannon Mcintosh came out on top. McIntosh elected to start at the back of the field to try and capture an extra purse, and he did just that.

Early in racing action, Tristin Thomas of Burlington, WA. Took the lead coming from the fourth starting position. Jonathan Beason of Broken Arrow, OK. followed along in the second position and Morgan Frewaldt of Kansas City, KS. in third.

After a few early cautions, McIntosh had made his way up to the fifth-place position on lap 8 of the 25-lap feature. Thomas led the field to green after a caution and McIntosh set his sights on the top position. McIntosh stepped out and took the top side and never looked back. Cannon took the lead from Thomas following in second and Beason in third.

McIntosh still in command with five laps left, as he endured lapped traffic ahead. A caution caused the field to get stacked back up and McIntosh never looked back. Cannon McIntosh captured the trip to victory lane back in his family owned #5T at Port City Raceway. Jonathan Beason finished third and Noah Gass captured the third position.

"We had a lot of yellows early and I was able to get through the wrecks, there were a few that were close, but I just had to keep my eyes open. I ran a lot of laps here growing up and I'm just really comfortable around this racetrack" States feature winner, Cannon McIntosh.

Dussel gets pep talk and takes Fremont 410 win; Henry claims ASCS title; Weaver gets late race 305 win and ASCS title

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Nate Dussel was feeling upset about his racing fortunes as of late. Then a phone call with long time sponsor and family friend Bill Berrier Saturday morning put things into perspective. The Bradner, Ohio driver used lapped traffic to take the lead in the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint feature on lap five and sliced through lapped traffic on a heavy Fremont Speedway Saturday, Sept. 12 to earn his second feature win of the season and the $5,000 payday on Kistler Engines/Kistler Racing Products Night.

“I had a pretty tough conversation with Bill Berrier this morning…you know his wife is going through hell right now. I was pretty pissy about how we’ve been running and last night and I thought grow up dude there’s people fighting way bigger fights than we’re fighting. This is for Bill and Cathy…hope it lifts their spirits a little bit,” said Dussel in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.

Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry, who earned the 2020 Attica Raceway Park track championship, wrapped up the 2020 All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group with his third place finish.

“Things kind of went our way there that last little bit at the end. We got lucky and started on the front row of the heat race and got through the heat race. It was hard to pass but we knew we were okay starting there in the feature and just had to run our race. I can’t say enough about Zack, Brett, Jim, Conner and all the girls behind this deal. Everyone puts in so much time and effort and this is really special,” said Henry of his Lane Racing machine.

Fremont’s Paul Weaver inherited the lead in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature with just three laps to go when Shawn Valenti pulled off the track. Weaver went on to score his fifth win of the season at Fremont – it’s his 12th overall in 2020 with seven wins at Attica – and it was his 56th career win at “The Track That Action Built” putting him seventh on the all-time win list. The victory also gave weaver the NAPA of Bryan AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales championship.

“I closed on him (Valenti)….I don’t know if there was something wrong…maybe he ran out of tear-offs. I was using a tear-off every other lap. This whole weekend everything went perfect…starting out front and getting heat race points…just everything went my way. Hate to see what’s going to happen tomorrow,” said Weaver beside his B&B Drain Services, Hampshire Racing Engines, Seagate Sandblasting, M&W Excavating backed #1W.

Austin Black, 18, from Clyde started racing go-karts when he was four-years-old. This year he decided to strap in a dirt truck and compete. The youngster looked like a seasoned veteran, leading all 20 laps and holding off former track champion Kent Brewer and Jim Holcomb for his first ever win in the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks. After an opening lap yellow, the feature went non-stop and Black not only was battling to maintain the lead but had to do so in heavy lapped traffic the last half of the race.

“I have to thank Tony Myers, my mom and dad and everyone that helps me out. When I saw Jim Holcomb coming I thought I’d better get going and next thing you know lapped traffic came and that’s all she wrote and I had to figure out what to do. This feels like a dream right now,” said Black beside his Ala Carte Café, Fireside U Pull It Auto, Quality Welding, Norman Family Collision, ABC Used Cars, Southridge Market, Big D’s Pizza, Lee’s Famous Recipe, The Mane Station, Jones Manufacturing, Redline Racing, Auxter Funeral Home backed #78.

Dussel and Duane Zablocki brought the field to green for the 30-lap 410 sprint feature with Zablocki grabbing the early lead over Dussel, Stuart Brubaker, DJ Foos, Caleb Griffith, Cap Henry and Trey Jacobs. The leaders raced into heavy lapped traffic by the fifth circuit and Dussel used it to grab the lead.

Dussel began to pull away, slicing through lapped traffic like a surgeon with Brubaker taking second on lap 12 with Zablocki, Henry, TJ Michael, Dean Jacobs and Tim Shaffer in pursuit. The first race stoppage came on lap 20 when Caleb Griffith tumbled in turn two; he was okay. After allowing drivers to put on more helmet tear-offs, the race resumed with but only for a lap when something broke on Trey Jacobs’ mount. On the restart Dussel pulled away again with Henry, Michael, Foos and Dean Jacobs giving chase.

Dussel hit his marks perfectly the remaining eight laps and drove to the win over Brubaker, Henry, Michael and Foos.

“First half of that race I was probably one of the few who could maneuver. That last nine laps I couldn’t stop plowing and I thought man I’m going to give Stewie (Stuart Brubaker) this win. I would go through two tear-offs in one corner and I thought man that doesn’t add up for 30 laps…I’m going to be out of tear-offs. I fell in line here and there but took my chances when I had to,” said Dussel beside his Northwest Installation/Industrial Movers, Fausey Farms, Berrier Custom Fabrication, JRC Transportation, NuFarm, Al Davis Carpet and Laminate, Real Geese Decoys, Gressman Powersports, A Plus Auto Center, Box 7, Speedways Bar & Grille, DGGI, Wurtec, Swindell Speedlab backed #1.

Mike Keegan and Shawn Valenti brought the field to green for the 25 lap 305 sprint A-main with Valenti bolting into the lead over Keegan, Jamie Miller, Kasey Ziebold and Paul Weaver. After a lap was scored two cars got hooked together bringing out the caution. On the restart Valenti pulled away from Keegan, Miller, Ziebold and Weaver.

Keegan great run came to an end when he slipped over the cushion in turn two and made contact with the wall. On the restart Valenti again pulled away from Miller, Weaver, Ziebold, Zeth Sabo and Kyle Peters. Heavy lapped traffic came into play with seven laps to go with Valenti leading Miller and a closing Weaver. Weaver took second on lap 20 and three laps later Valenti slowed and pulled into the infield.

Out front, Weaver drove to the win over an impressive run for Sabo, Miller, Seth Schneider and Ziebold.

After an opening lap crash, the dirt truck feature went non-stop for 20 laps and was very entertaining. Pole-sitter Black grabbed the lead over Dustin Keegan, John Brooks, Jim Holcomb and Kent Brewer. Brooks took second on lap two with Holcomb taking the spot a lap later. From there it was a tremendous three truck battle the remaining 17 laps.

Black sliced his way through traffic while Holcomb and Brewer traded the runner-up spot just feet behind him every lap. Holcomb made several moves to Black’s inside while in lapped traffic but couldn’t get the pass.

As they raced to the white flag, Holcomb tried to get under Black and hit one of the infield tractor tires, putting Brewer into second. Coming to the checkers Brewer tried to race under Black but couldn’t get by as Black took the win by just feet over Brewer, Holcomb, Shawn Valenti and Jamie Miller.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, Sept. 19 with the 410, 305 sprints and dirt trucks in action. Then on Saturday, Sept. 26 it’s all sprint cars as the FAST series 410s come to town along with the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series non-wing sprints with the 305 sprints on the racing card as well.

MAX BLAIR WINS RETURN OF RUSH LATE MODELS TO SHARON AFTER 4 YEARS; 1ST EVER RUSH SPRINT WIN FOR BRIAN RUHLMAN; GARRETT KRUMMERT TAKES NIGHT 1 "APPLE FESTIVAL NATS" RUSH MOD WIN; 1ST DWARF CAR WIN FOR SHAYNE MEADOWS

Hartford, OH September 11, 2020 After losing the last two months of the racing season due to restrictions set forth by the Ohio Department of Health from the COVID-19 pandemic, Sharon Speedway finally received the green light to return to racing on Friday night for night one of the annual "Apple Festival Nationals". Scoring wins and celebrating in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane were Max Blair-RUSH Late Models, Brian Ruhlman-RUSH Sprint Cars, Garrett Krummert-HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and Shayne Meadows-Joe's Radiator Sportsman Dwarf Cars. Heat races were contested for the Penn-Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series and the Elite Econo Mod Series for the "Kyle Miller Memorial".

The RUSH Late Models raced on the new red clay surface for the first time ever and it was Max Blair winning the division's first race at Sharon since the 2016 "Apple Festival Nationals". Blair, who has won five of the last seven National Weekly Series Championships for RUSH, went third to first on the first lap and held off late race charges by Matt Latta, Darrell Bossard, and Josh Ferry for the $800 Pace Performance Weekly Series victory.

"Man this track is beautiful- I wish we could race here a lot more," expressed the 30-year-old Centerville, Pa. racer. "There were eight grooves out there and you could race on every inch of it. This was one of the best race tracks I've ever raced at in my life- that's a true story. We used to race here all the time when the race track wasn't real nice. They need to let us come here and race now that it's one of the nicest places around- crates or supers. I have to thank Sharon for having the RUSH race and maybe we can have a few more. Once we got going before that late yellow, I felt pretty good. I wasn't sure if I was getting away from those guys, but I was pretty confident. Anything can happen on restarts; I just kept trying to change my entry up a little bit to keep those guys behind me guessing on what I was going to do."

Blair used his patented inside lane to sneak under Bossard and Billy Henry, Jr. on the opening lap for the lead, while Henry, Bossard, Ferry, and Jason Genco filled out the top five. Fifth starting Ferry, a two-time Sharon Econo Mod winner is in his first year of RUSH Late Model racing, made a nice move following a restart on lap two to race into second. Latta started sixth and was on the charge as he passed Bossard for third on lap five.

A caution for Dave Airgood slowed action with seven laps scored. Latta had a poor restart when racing resumed on lap eight as Bossard and Genco were able to regain third and fourth respectively. While Blair set a torrid pace out front, excellent racing took place from second on back as positions were changing frequently. Ferry and Bossard raced side-by-side lap after lap with Bossard getting back to second on lap 14. Traffic came into play on lap 16, but Blair maintained a comfortable lead until the event's final caution was displayed for Gary Youngs with 19 laps scored.

Back under green for the final time, Latta was making the top work as he charged back to second taking the position from Bossard on lap 21. It looked like Latta may have had something for Blair, but Blair changed lines as he moved up to slow Latta's charge. Blair appeared to have more speed in the closing laps using a different lane around the racey 3/8-mile track.

Blair would take the checkered flag first in his Murphy's Logging/C&J Dairy/Previty's Auto Wrecking/Specialty Products/Moody & Son Welding/Upstate Auto-sponsored #111 for his eighth career Sharon RUSH Late Model win. Latta got too high in turn four on the final lap stuffing his car in the fence allowing Bossard to cross the line in second 1.974 seconds behind Blair. Ferry was third over New York's Genco. RUSH's "Futures Cup" points leader, Logan Zarin, went ninth to fifth as Breyton Santee, Justin Kann, Michigan's Colby Beighey, and Cole Petrelle rounded out the top 10. Latta, Ferry, and Genco won the heats over the 22-car field.

Brian Ruhlman had finished second in three of the last four RUSH Sprint Car races at Sharon dating back to last season. In fact, Ruhlman had been the bridesmaid numerous times over the past three seasons in RUSH competition throughout the circuit. On Friday night, Ruhlman started sixth and used every inch of the surface making the winning pass around the outside of Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series points leader, Jeremy Weaver, on lap 16 to capture his first career RUSH Sprint win, worth $500. Ruhlman also became the third different winner in as many 2020 races.

"The track was beautiful- we drive four hours to come here and run and we'd be here every week if you'd have us," expressed the 50-year-old Clarklake, MI driver. "You have to be on the wheel on these cars. I started to run a '410' non-wing car- they are way quicker than these so it makes it quicker to find the limit. It's all driver control in these cars so it leaves it up to the driver. I saw some Kyle Larson kid run the top here a couple months ago so I figured I'd try it and put it up there. I have to thank Veronica- it's just her and I."

Jarod Larson raced to the early lead with Weaver passing Andy Feil on the opening lap. After a caution for Brandon Blackshear, Weaver snuck under Larson in turn four for second when racing resumed on lap three with Ruhlman passing Shawn Smith for fourth. While Weaver led, the battle was on for second with Larson trying to fend off Feil and Ruhlman.

Following a restart for Nolan Groves' spin with eight laps completed, Ruhlman charged past Feil for third bringing ninth starting Steve Pedley with him. Ruhlman continued to move forward nipping Larson at the line for second on lap 13. Ruhlman then got the caution he needed when rookies Tyler Newhart and Brandon Shughart spun with 15 laps scored. When racing resumed, Ruhlman went to the top and powered around Weaver to lead the 16th circuit.

Ruhlman led the final five laps in his Ruhlman Race Cars/Ruhlman Engineering-sponsored #49 for his second career Sharon win as he won in an Outlaw Mod on June 8, 2019 in route to the "Bickerstaff Cup" championship. Larson was able to get back by Weaver to cross the finish in second, but was disqualified in post-race tech for his RPMs exceeding the mandated 6,200 on his rev box. Weaver was then credited for second.

Pedley, who won his first career race on July 12, had another good run in third. Feil dropped to fourth. Big-Block Modified racer Rick Regalski, Jr. finished fifth in his first RUSH start driving Scott Clever's #14. Brian Hartzell, Smith, Jeremy Kornbau, Groves, and A.J. MacQuarrie completed the top 10. Ruhlman and Smith won the heat races over the 17-car field.

Defending and two-time RUSH Sportsman Modified Weekly Series Champion, Garrett Krummert, led from start-to-finish in an uncharacteristic caution-filled 20-lap HTMA/Precise Racing Products feature. Krummert's first Sharon win of the season was far from easy as he had to fend off Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series points leader Rob Kristyak taking the win by a mere 0.116 of a second for the $600 payday. Special thanks to Alcon Mechanical, C&R Tire, Jerry Rents, Ohio Intra Express, and T&C Automotive for the sponsorship to allow the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds to have a complete show on Friday night as well.

"Not being able to race here every week really makes you appreciate this place," acknowledged the 32-year-old Ellwood City, Pa. resident. "I'm glad we could come out and race tonight. It's a shame that race was so long and too many cautions, but it is what it is. The track was really good for cars not being on it for awhile. Ever since they went to the red clay the track has been really good and I enjoy coming here."

A heads up start put Krummert on the pole of the feature as he took off in the lead over Josh Deems, Tony Tatgenhorst, and fifth starting Kristyak. On the lap three restart, Kristyak passed both Tatgenhorst and Deems for second. While Krummert continued to maintain the top spot through of bevy of restarts, Kristyak and Deems resumed their heat race battle running side-by-side for P2 on laps 16-18 before the event's final caution with 18 laps scored.

This set up a two-lap dash to the checkered flag and gave Kristyak one more shot. The two raced side-by-side with Krummert on the bottom and Kristyak on the top. It appeared like Kristyak may be able to pull off the win entering turn three on the final lap as he had the advantage, but Krummert got enough bite off the bottom of turn four to secure the victory. Krummert's sixth career RUSH Mod victory and seventh overall at Sharon came in the Jerry Schaffer Racing/Turn 4 Toilets-sponsored #10s.

Deems, who always runs well at Sharon, was third over Tatgenhorst. Chas Wolbert charged back through the field to finish fifth after an early flat tire. Kyle Martell was sixth. Jordan Ehrenberg had a good run going 15th to seventh over two-time track champion Kole Holden. David Kalb, Jr. and RUSH Mod "Futures Cup" points leader Ayden Cipriano completed the top 10. Krummert, Deems, and Tatgenhorst won the heat races over the 27-car field.

The Sportsman Dwarf Cars made their annual appearance at the track and it was Shayne Meadows garnering his first career Sharon victory. Meadows made the winning pass on lap five from Doug Stanley to score the $600 victory in the 15-lap feature presented by Joe's Radiator with associate sponsorship from Waterstone Mortgage, R. Tumbleweed Transportation, and Cipriano Racing.

"I love driving these cars," stated the Deerfield, Ohio driver. "I drive a Mod Lite at Deerfield (Good's Raceway) and this is my first time in this car and it's rocket. We have a blast coming here and I love it. I still like the Mod Lites, but if you keep bringing the Dwarfs back I'll be here every year. I have to thank Terry Ohl; he owns this car and let me drive it tonight. I want to thank all the fans for coming out and supporting this. I hope everyone gets home safe."

It was four-wide for the lead on the opening lap with Joe Grzelak, Jr. going third to first over Jake Eakin, Steve Mix, and Stanley. Mix and Grzelak would be involved in spins in successive laps as Stanley took over the top spot on lap two. Meadows started back in ninth and raced side-by-side for the lead with Stanley on laps four and five before taking over for good on the fifth circuit.

Three cautions on laps 12, 13, and 14 gave Stanley additional chances at Meadows, but was unable to unseat the leader and eventual winner. Stanley, a former Sprint Car racer throughout eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania, was second. Angie Grzelak beat her brother Joe to the finish for third as another female in Tiffany Williams was fifth. Eakin and Joe Grzelak were heat victors over the 22-car field.

Picking up Penn-Ohio Pro Stock Championship heat races were Chris McGuire, Bobby Whitling, Noah Brunnel, Alan Dellinger, and Chris Schneider over the 43-car field.

The four heat races for the Elite Econo Mod Series each paid $100 to-win and were won by Jeremy Double, Nate Young, Ty Rhoades, and Alan Dellinger. There were 32 cars for night one of the inaugural "Kyle Miller Memorial".

Night two of the "Apple Festival Nationals" will take place Saturday (September 12) with a complete show for the "410" Sprint Cars racing for $3,000 to-win and the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds for $800 to-win.

Refocused Mintz takes Attica Raceway Park checkers as Henry claims track title; Irey earns late model win with Shiels crowned champion; Weaver wins 305 feature and championship

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – A few weeks ago Craig Mintz was down on himself. He had crashed at Attica Raceway Park and decided to take some time away from racing to clear his mind and get refocused. It paid off Friday, Sept. 11 as the two-time Attica track champion took the lead with just six laps to go and survived a late race caution to score his first win of the season on Kistler Racing Products/Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome Plating/American Powersports presents the Mark Keegan Classic Season Championship Night.

“We haven’t won in a couple of years and I can’t tell you the last time we won at Attica. We have been struggling. And it’s not my guys…it’s me mentally. Some nights I’m not here mentally. Tonight we had a pretty good night overall. It was fun racing with Travis (Philo) and Cale (Conley) at the end. My wife is probably mad because she wasn’t here but I love her and my son and daughter. I have to thank my dad and Rich and we threw a new guy on our team tonight…it’s amazing to be here. To be honest with you this is a 2017 GF1 (chassis) so George Fisher must have been up there looking out after us,” said Mintz beside his Real Geese Decoys, Eagle Ignition Leads, KS Sales & Service, Kistler Racing Engines, Elite Wings backed 09.

“There were nights I sat home on Fridays and Saturdays and barely could watch because I wanted to be here. But I knew for the best for the team was take some time off and go build another race car and have it set up the way we wanted and come back strong rather than keep banging your head against the wall,” added Mintz about his 15th career Attica 410 victory.

Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry racked up his first ever Attica Raceway Park track championship with his sixth place finish in a season that saw him win seven features at the track.

“My visor got so fogged up I couldn’t see those guys and I knew I should quit racing with Craig when I couldn’t find him. I just kind of backed up to make sure we could finish that thing. I can’t say enough about my team…it’s a team effort and I’m just proud of these guys. It’s incredible. We got really close last year and just couldn’t do it so to seal it off this year…it’s been a remarkable season. I haven’t won a championship in anything since I was a little kid in go-karts,” said Henry of his Lane Racing team.

Mansfield, Ohio’s Matt Irey came into championship night just 16 points behind Devin Shiels. All Irey could do was win and hope Shiels finished worst than third. Irey did his part but so did Shiels. Irey took the lead with five laps to go and drove to his second late model victory of the season at Attica and the fifth of his career. Shiels held on to finish third and claim his second track title by just two points.

“This thing has been a rocket ship all year. We broke a motor last week and we put the small motor in to come out tonight. I couldn’t do this without all my family and my wife…I got married two weeks ago. We did everything we could….just came up a little bit short,” said Irey beside his Mid-Ohio Graphics, Rod Eddleblute’s Garage, Robin Jakubick Realtor, Artisan Concrete, Flenner Water Well & Excavating, Kilgore & Harring CPA backed #36.

For Shiels, the pressure of having to finish in the top three to win the track title was pretty intense.

“I love double point nights…not. We blew the water pump off last week for our worst finish of the year. Luckily it wasn’t a point night,” said Shiels.

Fremont’s Paul Weaver put an exclamation point on his phenomenal year in the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints, dominating the 25 lap feature for his seventh win of the year and 56th of his career in the division. It wrapped up his fourth track title in the last five years.

“I have to thank B&B Drains…Pam and Steve Brown came on board last year and Dave Rice and Bob Hampshire for helping get the motor going…that’s the most expensive part. Anyone can buy a race car but the motors are out priced basically,” said Weaver of his B&B Drain Service, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Seagate Sandblasting, Weaver Performance backed #1W.

Travis Philo and Ricky Peterson brought the field to green for the 30-lap 410 sprint feature with Philo grabbing the lead over Peterson with Cale Conley, Mintz, Cap Henry and Tim Shaffer battling hard for third. Mintz drove into second on lap two and closed quickly on Philo.

While the battle for the lead was entertaining so was the race for third between Conley and Henry. At the half-way point the leaders were slicing and dicing through heavy lapped traffic and Conley capitalized, taking second from Mintz on lap 17 and closed on Philo. But Mintz regrouped and retook the runner-up spot on lap 20 and four laps later drove under Philo for the lead.

The only thing that slowed Mintz’ march to the checkers was a caution with two laps to go. Mintz got a fantastic restart and drove away to the win over Conley who took second on the restart, Philo, Shaffer and Chad Kemenah.

With his fifth place finish, Kemenah has tightened the point battle with Cap Henry in the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group heading into the championship night Saturday at Fremont Speedway.

Nate Potts and Mike Bores brought the field to green for the 25 lap late model feature with Bores, who scored the win a week ago, taking the lead over Shiels, Larry Bellman, Potts, Ryan Missler and Irey.

Bores pulled away to a commanding lead while the action behind him was heating up. Shiels ran comfortably in second with Bellman and Irey locked in a torrid battle for third. The leaders raced into heavy lapped traffic by the 12 circuit with Bores lead beginning to evaporate as Shiels and Irey closed. Irey took second with nine laps remaining and closed to within half a car length of Bores.

The only caution flew with five laps to go and on the restart Irey drove around Bores for the lead. Bores continued to drive under Irey but could not make the winning pass as Irey took the checkers over Bores, Shiels, Missler and Gregg Haskell.

Weaver and Jim McGrath comprised the front row of the 25 lap 305 sprint A-main and when the green flew a multi-car incident brought out the red; there were no injuries. On the second attempt for green Weaver drove into the lead and pulled away while the action behind him was entertaining.

A caution with seven laps to go put Seth Schneider, Matt Foos and Jamie Miller right on Weaver’s rear bumper but the veteran was able to pull away once again. A final caution with four laps to go would not slow Weaver’s march to the win and championship. He pulled away for the victory as Miller, Schneider, Foos and Kody Brewer rounded out the top five.

First of Two Championship Nights Complete at Skagit Speedway

9/10/20

Alger, WA - Two championships were decided on the first of two championship nights of racing at Skagit Speedway. On Thursday night, it was Kelsey Carpenter and Jared Peterson winning the season titles in the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints and NW Focus Midgets respectively. Jesse Schlotfeldt won the Sportsman Sprint Main, while Peterson capped his championship season with the A Main win.

The twenty five lap A Main for the Sportsman Sprints featured carnage and drama, as multiple stoppages gave the leaders multiple chances to bunch up and race for the top spot. Schlotfeldt would lead every lap of the main with Chase Goetz hot on his heels in lapped traffic. Goetz would hold off Sean Johnson for second, keeping Johnson from the one additional finishing position he needed to tie Kelsey Carpenter in points. Carpenter would finish sixth after a torrid battle with Ashleigh Johnson for fifth, giving him his fifth title in the Sportsman Sprints and seventh total at the track. Car owner Bill Rude won his third title with Kelsey and fourth overall.

Jared Peterson was the feature winner and season champion for the NW Focus Midgets. Nick Evans led from the drop of the green, with Evan Margeson and Nik Larson putting big pressure on him. Peterson started seventh and weaved his way forward until moving into the runner up spot around lap 13. Finding the high side of the speedway working well, Jared ran the cushion the whole way around to take the top spot from Nick on lap 17 as he stormed to the win, his fourth at skagit and seventh on the season with the series. The owner's championship came to former Sportsman Sprint co-champ from 1993 Mark Steen and his wife Jolene, who field the Inlaws Racing #32 for Peterson. Evans would finish second in the main and in the season points as well, with Evan Margeson third in the feature.

While Cory Sweatman led the final ten laps of the Outlaw Tuner main event, the official win went to Rick Young as Sweatman was judged to not meet tech specs for the class. It was Young;s first victory of 2020. Zach Dalrymple and Jon Edwards rounded out the podium.

Keizer’s John Campos was the runner-up over third finishing Jake Mayden, from Springfield. Veterans Aaron Sheelar, of Springfield, and Paul Rea, of Eugene, wrapped up the top five in fourth and fifth.

Medford veteran Mark Wauge posted a second-place result over third-place Brian Smith, of Lebanon, and racing for car owners Jerry and Mandee Casey. Fourth went to Doug Elkins, from Salem, while crossing the finish line in fifth would be Sweet Home’s Kye Frick.

Another new face emerged victorious in the IMCA Sport Mods.
Mike DeSilva, of Springfield, got the job done and visited victory lane at Cottage Grove for the first time in around a decade. DeSilva’s nephew, Springfield chauffeur Daniel Ray, was a respectable second while taking home third was Michael Melton, of Battle Ground, Washington.
Isaac Sanders, from the coastal city of Brookings, collected fourth and behind him, in fifth, was Roseburg’s David Schmidt.

R. Ashley Wins Two Features On CGS Sunday Special;

J. Williamson, J. Whisler, Ray, And Osborne Also Obtain Wins

By Stephanie Deatherage Cottage Grove, Oregon- Cottage Grove Speedway rounded up their Labor Day Weekend on Sunday, September 6th. The same six divisions from the previous night returned to the ¼-mile clay oval. Those classes included the Limited Sprints, IMCA Modifieds, Late Models, IMCA Sport Mods, Street Stocks, and IMCA Sport Compacts.

In the Limited Sprint division, it was Ricky Ashley parkin his mount in victory lane. It is the first time that the Thurston driver has won in the Sprints this season. Grants Pass newcomer, R.J. McGahuey, was an impressive runner-up over third finishing Tyrell Mead, of Winston and racing for car owner Brian Crockett. The rest of the top five placers were made up of Anissa Curtice, from Eureka, California, and Cooper Desbiens, of Sutherlin.

A good turnout of IMCA Modifieds made the journey on Sunday. Eugene’s Jesse Williamson took care of business to become the newest winner in the class. Eston Whisler, of Otis, was second with Springfield chauffeur Jake Mayden in third. Keizer’s John Campos got fourth while Nick Bessette, from Battle Ground, Washington, completed the top five, in fifth. Jasper driver Eric Ashley won the consolation race.

Adams scores wild Path Valley win

Seizing his final opportunity, Lebanon’s Devin Adams executed a perfect inside pass in traffic on the final turn of the final lap of Path Valley Speedway Park’s 25-lap PA Sprint Series feature race Saturday, then held off Domenic Melair’s determined bid for his first PASS win and scored the victory by 0.087 seconds in a thrilling side-by-side finish.

It was the fourth career IMCA/RaceSaver win for the driver of the Fredericksburg Eagle Hotel/Adams Auto Sales/Garden Spot Auto Auction #99, but it was Adams’ first victory in what had been a somewhat frustrating 2020 season and his first at Path Valley.

For Melair, it was a heartbreaking loss. The Warrington driver passed Adams and pole-winning Garrett Bard to take the early lead in his Glen Del Labradors #55 but fell inches short of the win. Still, it was the best career finish yet for a young driver who, like Adams, is in his third season with PASS. Melair now has four top-6 finishes in his last six races and has become a regular contender.

John Walp battled with the lead contingent throughout the race and came home third, ahead of Bard and Ryan Lynn. Nathan Gramley, Jake Frye, Dustin Smith, Jeffrey Weaver and Scott Frack rounded out the top 10.

Bard had to take the initial lead three times after the first two starts were negated by minor incidents, then survived a scary bounce in turn one that cost him his lead. Lynn moved steadily through the field and earned the hard charger award, advancing 11 positions.

There actually was a tie for hard charger, but the win went to Lynn as the highest finisher. Special mention went to the other charger, though: Tom Carberry advanced from 23rd to 12th after having his car bounce over the guard rail and into the second turn catchfence at the start of his heat race. Despite the car’s precarious perch and the difficulty for track workers to bring it back to earth, Carberry’s team was able to make repairs and put him in position for an impressive feature run.

Heat races for the 24-car field were won by Adams, Melair and Frye.

Bubak sprints to IMCA RaceSaver Nationals crown

By Greg Soukup

EAGLE, Neb. (Sept. 6) – A driver who’s been a contender became a champion Sunday night at Eagle Raceway.

Jake Bubak led the last six laps in winning the eighth annual RaceSaver Nationals at America’s Home Track, after finishing third, third and fourth the last three years.

Along with the $2,500 top prize, Bubak repeated in taking the $1,000 to win Jake Ita Memorial Race of Champions on Saturday night. Nearly 90 teams vied at the biggest IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car event of the season.

Bubak’s win came from outside the second row of the three-wide start.

“I didn’t mind starting in the second row, I just didn’t want to start in the middle,” he said. “But as I told another racer ‘It’s the same for everybody’ so we just go along with it. We moved up fairly quickly, and towards the end it was kind of attrition. Joey (Danley) ended up bouncing and then spinning out and then Ethan (Barrow) breaking that wheel center was really unfortunate.”

“We had a great weekend for sure. I’m just happy that we were able to capitalize on the oppor­tunity and win the race,” he continued. “We enjoy coming to Eagle Raceway. It’s a track that I feel we do fairly decent at every time. Even if we have to start far back, we always find our way to the front. It’s a fun track.”

Trevor Serbus, Dustin Stroup, Trevor Grossenbacher and Stuart Snyder rounded out the top five.

Barrow had led lap one followed by Danley, Serbus and Bubak in the 74B. Tyler Drueke got past Bubak and the field entered lapped traffic on the seventh circuit.

After a restart, Barrow again caught up to lapped traffic on lap 13 before Danley spun two laps later. Drueke dropped back on the restart to move Bubak to third and Grossenbacher to fourth.

Barrow’s right rear tire came off after the center of the wheel broke on lap 18, sending him into the wall and Serbus inherited the lead. Cody Ledger jumped the cushion in 1 & 2 on the restart, climbed and then riding along the wall before rolling over.

Chad Wilson took over fourth but gave the spot back to Stroup the next time around. Bubak passed Serbus with six circuits remaining and led to the checkers.

Feature results – 1. Jake Bubak Lubbock, Texas; 2. Trevor Serbus, Olivia, Minn.; 3. Dustin Stroup, Fremont, Ohio; 4. Trevor Grossenbacher, Panama; 5. Stuart Snyder, Lincoln; 6. Casey Burkham, Combine, Texas; 7. Zach Blurton, Quinter, Kan.; 8. Jason Martin, Crete; 9. Chad Wil­son, North Richland Hills, Texas; 10. Toby Chapman, Panama; 11. Claud Estes III, Godley, Texas; 12.

CAP HENRY TOPS PETE JACOBS MEMORIAL FEATURE; ZACH MILBEE ZIPS TO STEEL BLOCK LATE MODEL CHECKERS; MOORE PARKS IT TWICE IN VICTORY LANE

Orrville, Ohio

Sunday, September 6, 2020

By Mike Swanger

It was a full house of fans and cars at Wayne County Speedway Sunday evening for the Pete Jacobs Memorial as the Sprint cars were chasing after the $13,000 winners share for the feature. Dash winner Lee Jacobs would take his pole position spot and lead the opening eight circuits with fifth starting Cap Henry grabbing second on the first lap with fast qualifier Tim Shaffer taking third from Tyler Street om lap three. The red flag would wave on lap six when Trey Jacobs flipped in turn two as he was ok but ended his night. On the restart, Henry would put the pressure on Jacobs for the lead while Shaffer and Jac Haudenschild dueled for third. Henry would power past Jacobs coming out of turn two and take the lead on lap nine and on the next circuit, Haudenschild motored past Jacobs for second with Shaffer taking third the next lap from Jacobs. Following a caution on lap 17, Haudenschild would try sliders in turn one and two the next two laps but Henry would crossover both times to hold off the Sprintcar Hall of Famer. From that point on, Henry and his Beer Barrel Bourbon, F K Rod Ends and Linder's #4 would begin to pull away as Haudenschild tagged the wall in both corners of the track to try and chase Henry back down but could not catch back up to Henry as the checkered flag flew. For Henry, this was his third win at WCS this season as the Republic driver won the OVSCA race on June 13th and won the Speedweek Duffy Smith Memorial on July 6th. Haudenschild finished second followed by Shaffer and Cale Conley with Cole Duncan taking fifth. Heat winners were Stuart Brubaker, Lee Jacobs, Henry and Street as each of them picked up $100 for the win plus a trophy that each of them donated to a youngster in the stands. Shaffer picked up $250 for the fast time with Chris Myers collecting another $250 for the hard charger and Trey Jacobs getting a gift certificate from Wilwood Brakes for the hard luck award.

The Steel Block Late Model Series made their first ever visit to 'Orrville's Historic Oval' and the first ten laps of the 25 car feature was marred by several cautions but things settled down. Nick Corbitt led the opening 16 circuits with Poca WV's Zach Milbee and points leader Pete Crum in pursuit. After a lap 16 yellow flag, Milbee and his Dohm Cycles, Octane Race Products and Finish 1 Auto Body #5m swiped the top spot away from Corbitt as Crum would make it a three car race. With the laps dwindling down, Clint Keenan challenged Corbitt and Crum for second as Milbee began to pull away. Crum secured second with two circuits to go as Corbitt fended of Keenan's charge for third as Matt Melvin filled out the top five. Crum, Milbee and Keenan bested the heat races with David Giaugue collecting the Accu Force Dyno's & Testers Hard Charger award.

Brandon Craver used the pole position to lead the first lap of the McKenzie Concrete Super Stock main but after that it was fifth starting Mansfield's Kyle Moore taking over and he would breeze to his fourth win of the season aboard the Bob Daugherty owned, R C Kuhn & Sons, Met's Machine and Smith Fabricating #21d. Craver kept second place from Seth Dickerson, Took Wiles and Chase Alexander until two laps to go when Craver's car slowed and brought out the caution. This negated Moore's big lead and gave the field a chance to steal the win from Moore on the double file restart, but he would not have anyone taking the win from him as he once again pulled away for the win. Dickerson was second as Took Wiles finished third after coming back from causing a caution. Chase Alexander ran fourth as Don Rutt came back to finish fifth after also bring out the caution flag earlier in the race. Moore and Wiles notched the heat wins.

The Modifieds finished the night out with one of the most competitive races of the year and the last two laps were like seeing who the best strongman was. Jimmy Smith took the outside pole position to set the pace for the opening three laps but sixth starting Kyle Moore took over at that point with Nathon Loney and Doug Drown putting Smith back to fourth on the next lap. A caution on lap six double filed the field and when the green waved again, both Loney and Drown moved past Moore with Drown claiming the point from Loney on the next trip around. Following a lap 11 caution, the field began to line up when Loney's car came to a stop with mechanical issues and had to be towed off. The race turned into a back and forth, slide job and croos overs for the rest of the way as Moore led lap 12, Drown took over for the next two lap then Moore for two laps and then Drown for the next three including the white flag lap. As the two came out of turn two on the last lap, they made hard contact with each other with the cars getting out of shape, Moore was able to get his back under control quicker than Drown could and beat him back to the finish line by just a car length. For Moore and his Kepling Flooring, Moore's Used Tires and Arnold Motorsports #11*, it would be his sixth modified win at WCS. following Drown was Smith, Robbie Ledger and Mark Gardiner. Heat winners were Moore and Loney.

A big thanks to DAC Equine Vitamins and Supplements, Rod Ends Supply, Outerwears, Schoenfeld, Hoosier Tires, Simpson Race Products, Kear's Speedshop, Kistler Racing, Engler, and Accu Force for their partnership for the nights races.

The next race will be on Friday, September 25 when the NOS Energy World of Outlaw Sprint cars return for the make up from the July race with the Super Stock in action also.

The Sprint Car Bandits Will Be RIDIN' THE RAIL AT K-DALE SATURDAY September 26th for the Final Time in 2020!

Kennedale, TX (09/07/20) by DarinShort.com. The best 360C.I. powered Sprint Car teams of the region will be assembled to figuratively and literally shred the black dirt of the ¼ mile KENNEDALE SPEEDWAY PARK Saturday September 26th at 7pm, when the NCRA Sprint Car Bandits® (SCB) series presents the running of "Ridin' the Rail at K-Dale."

:30 KSP SCB REWIND 6/27/20: For those of you that were at this event in June, you already know what 'Ridin' the Rail at K-Dale' means, as Chad Wilson would ride the tippy-top rail around KSP in dense lapped traffic while Jeb Sessums would track him down and take the lead with two laps to go, then Wilson would take the lead - and nearly losing coming down for the checkers by banging off the rail in a wild finish to the 25-lap championship feature event. To relive the event, click https://youtu.be/mP0L-ZVQnuA and check out the attached video-stills to see just how close it was by visiting the pinned post on the SCB Facebook page. There was one stoppage in the feature, and that was for Colby Estes who took a hard tumble at the apex of corners 3 and 4. Interestingly enough, in the 2019 SCB event at KSP, Wilson would start 4th and track down race-long leader Jeb Sessums to take the win in the non-stop 25-lapper. We would like to thank Bo Rawdon and track crew for providing a stellar racing surface for the fans and racers.

BACK TO SEPT. 26: Track Promoter Tony Dycus comments: “The NCRA Sprint Car Bandits series brings a great group of cars to Kennedale Speedway Park, with huge crowds every time, and the quality of the racing is second to none and our fans love them, so that's why we added a second SCB date in 2020. And we’re holding the line on ticket pricing. Adults can get in to see these events for just $16 so more families can afford to take it in.”

Pit Gates open at 4pm on race day, Saturday September 26th, with racing at 7pm. Grandstands open at 5pm. Adult GA to this huge event is just $16! Kids are $5, Seniors just $10, and all pit passes are $35. KSP divisions will round out the very full night of racing, including the Season Championships for the IMCA Modifieds, SportMods, Stock Cars & Sport Compact divisions; plus the Factory Stocks and Junior Mini Stocks. The SCB are slated to run 2nd division out for the feature event (determined by when optimum track conditions for sprint cars exist, as all SCB events.). Note that at the time of writing Tarrant County is currently requiring face masks be worn at events such as this, when and where social distancing cannot be maintained.

Daum Dazzles in POWRi Lake Ozark Speedway Non-Wing Nationals Finale

Eldon, MO. (09/06/2020) For the final night of the Second Annual Lake Ozark Speedway Non-Wing Nationals with the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League, 30 entrants would fill the pits laying everything on the line for the top prize and title of "King of the Lake Ozark Non-Wings". Exceptional racing would highlight the night with battles throughout the field as the top three swapped positions nearly every lap. After the full twenty-five feature laps were complete Zach Daum would stand victorious in victory lane with his McGarry Motorsports hot-rod.

Early track actions would witness Zach Daum #311 log the fastest lap time in hot-laps sessions with a 14.169-second lap. Three heat races were heavily contested with #91 Riley Kreisel, Zach Daum, and #29 Mitch Wissmiller all claiming their preliminary racing victories. Xavier Doney #74, in just his second full-size non-wing sprint start, would earn the twelve laps B-Feature. Paul Nienhiser #9x would use a sixth to second place run in his heat race to earn the night's high point qualifier award, gaining the pole starting spot for the main event.

Pacing the field for the initial start Paul Nienhiser and Riley Kreisel would lead the field to green in a side-by-side battle for the top running spot. Flying into the first corners both front row challengers would seek speed on the high side, leaving an opening for Joe B. Miller #31. Miller would capitalize leading the first four laps. With Joe B. showing the way, Kreisel would grab the lead on lap five showing Nienhiser the fastest way around Miller.

Kreisel and Nienhiser would both then trade the lead multiple times, many lead swaps occurring on the same lap. With Kreisel leading laps five through eight and Nienhiser taking control on laps eight through eleven, caution would take the top two front-runners from the competition. When Nienhiser would make contact with the outside wall coming off turn four causing him to slow, Kreisel would have nowhere to retreat climbing the slowing Nienhiser and stopping just before the entrance to turn one with both cars caught together.

Joe B. Miller would inherit the lead after the caution was cleared while maintaining a close run upfront with this McGary Motorsport teammate Zach Daum and #6 Mario Clouser in hot pursuit. These three drivers would then put on a display of close-quarter racing unlike any other. With slide-jobs and crossovers on both sides of the track, Miller would lead the way on laps twelve through eighteen. Daum would earn a slight advantage on lap nineteen with Joe B. back to the point on the twentieth through twenty-third revolutions around "The Lake".

With Miller, Clouser, and Daum all three vying for first, neither of the drivers giving an inch, Zach Daum would grab the lead using a low-line maneuver on the second to last lap and hold on to the lead for the final laps in a thrilling feature event. Mario Clouser would be in the thick of the heated frontend battle ending the night in the runner-up position. Joe B. Miller would place a tight third in a great showing for the night, putting the second McGarry Motorsports entry onto the podium. Mitch Wissmiller would mount a charge towards the front in the later stages of the race to place fourth. Xavier Doney #74 would impress all driving from a seventeenth starting spot after winning the B-Feature to round out the top-five in finishing positions and earning a hard charger award for his efforts.

Larson and Dover Top Talented Fields to Wrap Up Marquee Event at Huset's Speedway With Victories

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 6, 2020) - Kyle Larson added another big win to his impressive 2020 racing résumé on Sunday evening at Huset's Speedway, where he led the final 10 laps to capture the $20,000-to-win World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series victory.

It marked Larson's ninth win of the season with the series - the most of any driver - and his first at the high-banked oval. Jack Dover was also victorious, capturing the Midwest Sprint Touring Series A Main for the second straight night.

"It's definitely cool to get a win here," Larson said. "I'm happy to get another Outlaw win."

Giovanni Scelzi led the first 25 laps as Larson began to build steam in the final half of the 35-lap race. He advanced to third place just before a caution bunched up the field and allowed him to maneuver into the runner-up position during a restart on Lap 21. The ensuing restart on Lap 25 also worked in his favor as Larson rocketed into the lead from the bottom groove as Scelzi selected the outside lane for the double-file restart. It turned out to be the race-winning pass.

"The restarts weren't working out for me early," Larson said. "Gio shocked me taking the top. I think he made the right move choosing the top. I think he spun his tires. I was able to get a good run in the moisture."

James McFadden was also strong on the late restarts. McFadden was running sixth on the restart when Larson took the lead. McFadden marched forward and he made the most of the final restart with three laps remaining, powering from fourth to second place.

"Early we struggled," he said. "I just couldn't get a good rhythm. I finally learned how to run the bottom.

"The track was fun. I think you just needed to capitalize when other people made a mistake."

David Gravel rounded out the podium with a third-place showing.

"We want to win these races and Kyle is making us step up our game," he said. "I think we had a good enough car to win. As the green flag (runs) went on we were just as good as anybody."

Scelzi finished fourth and World of Outlaws points leader Brad Sweet advanced from 12th to fifth place.

Justin Henderson and Larson each set quick time in their group. Carson Macedo, Kerry Madsen, Larson and Scelzi were the heat race winners. Scelzi also claimed the dash victory. Logan Schuchart, who ranks second in the championship standings, won the Last Chance Showdown.

The Midwest Sprint Touring Series main event also showcased some exciting moments. Chris Graf led the first five laps before flipping in turn one to end his night early. Dover inherited the lead and outlasted the competition during two restarts in the final seven laps to score his second straight triumph.

"We got a new car here three weeks ago after a bad crash," he said. "It's a car I ran last year. I'm just trying to get in my comfort zone.

"When you have guys like Carson McCarl and Lee Grosz behind you you kinda get nervous. I'm really glad we were able to pull off two wins on the weekend."

McCarl rallied from eighth to second place with Grosz holding off Hard Charger Award winner Clint Garner, who started 15th, for the final spot on the podium. Kaleb Johnson earned a fifth-place result.

Grosz, Graf and Eric Lutz each won a heat race.

The final event of the season for the revived Huset's Speedway is Sept. 18-19 when the track hosts the DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores featuring the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and the Midwest Power Series as well as RaceSaver Sprints.

In Sunday’s final portion of the Labor Day Weekend Spectacular atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval, the Wright, KS, racer nabbed his second Hambelton Racing DCRP Sprint Car win by wiring the field in the 15-lapper.

Other Sunday night winners that put the finishing touches on the Labor Day Weekend double were Tracy Link in IMCA Modifieds, Brian May in IMCA Sport Modifieds, Gregg Schell in IMCA Stock Cars and Trevor Schmidt in IMCA Hobby Stocks. Schmidt ranked as the only driver to sweep his divisions features for the weekend.

After setting a fast time of 14.406 seconds in qualifying and then winning his heat race to earn the pole position for the 15-lap feature, Knight gunned into the lead at the drop of the green flag and raced away from the field for a wire-to-wire score aboard the Scott Knight Racing Engines-powered Superior Fence / J-A-G No. 10 Triple-X chassis.

Knight crossed the stripe ahead of his brother Tyler Knight with Las Cruces’ Richard Wilbee filling out the podium in third.

“We’ve been putting together some good runs lately,” Knight commented in victory lane. “The car count is a little lighter than we would have liked, but I’m not going to complain about a win.”

The 15-lap IMCA Modified feature offered up some drama with Rolla’s Tracy Link matching his son’s Saturday night effort by parking his No. 2L entry in victory lane.

Link raced into the lead from the pole position and had William Nusser and Nick Link at a distance until closing in on a pair of lapped cars past the midway point.

Entering turn one with a handful of laps to go, Link made contact with one of the tail-end cars and looped it. The caution inadvertently flew, but not before Nusser and the younger Link had slipped by.

Restarting third where he would have blended in sans caution, Tracy Link battled his way back to the front as the white flag flew and took the win ahead of Nusser and Nick Link.

“That really motivated me when that happened,” Link explained. “I was afraid I was going to get put all the way to the back, I wouldn’t have been happy about that.”

After three different drivers earned first career DCRP feature wins on Saturday night, Spearville’s Brian May broke the ice as well with his first IMCA Sport Modified win in Sunday night’s 15-lap finale.

Gridding the feature outside the third row, May needed just one round to shoot into second and then took the lead away from pole starter Monty Nordyke on the fifth lap. From that point, May ripped around the topside the rest of the way to post the win ahead of Nordyke and Saturday night winner Kyle Wiens.

“When I went into the first corner and passed all those cars, I knew then I had a car that could win,” May said in victory lane.

The 15-lap Stock Car feature win was awarded to Cheney’s Gregg Schell after the apparent top-two finishers as well as the fourth-place finisher failed to pass post-race technical inspection.

While Angel Munoz and Dusty Witthuhn diced for the lead much of the way, Schell had a front-row seat right on their heels and crossed the stripe third before the rash of DQ’s resulted in the victory with Jesse Smith and Donald Kaup on the podium as well.

Hays racer Trevor Schmidt made it two in a row for the weekend by winning the 15-lap IMCA Hobby Stock feature. But, after leading the entirety of Saturday’s feature, Schmidt battled past Duane Wahrman to post a last-lap win.

While Schmidt led the way to the green flag, Wahrman jumped into the initial lead with Schmidt in tow. Schmidt moved in to challenge at the midway point and the duo spent the vast majority of the final handful of rounds in side-by-side fashion with Schmidt edging into the lead on the final lap to take the win ahead of Wahrman and Dion Priddy.

“I got a good run off the bottom coming to the white flag and got alongside him,” Schmidt summed up. “It was still a little sloppy at the bottom of one and two and I slid up into him a little bit, I didn’t mean to get into him. Then he paid me back in turn four coming to the checkered, so hopefully there’s no hard feelings.”

Dodge City Raceway Park is back in action next Friday and Saturday, September 11-12, with the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars and IMCA Modifieds on both nights.

Balog, McMullen star in IRA-PDTR Sprint Car twinbill

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 5, 2020 – As multiple-time champions and the clear0cut favorites to add another title to their resumes in their respective divisions in 2020, nine-time Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association champion Bill Balog of Hartland and 2017 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing and three-time Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh put their considerable driving prowess on full display by picking up A-main victories, during an all-Sprint Car program at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 5.

In the 30-lap IRA 410 Sprint Series headliner, Balog outdueled Josh Schneiderman of West Burlington, Iowa in the closing laps to claim his 10th IRA A-main victory of the 2020 season.

McMullen snuck past early race leader Will Gerrits of Waupun at the mid-way point to claim his third PDTR A-main victory of the 2020 campaign and sixth overall MSA main event win of the 2020 campaign.

Balog started on the pole of the 30-lap IRA main event and quickly outpowered outside front row starter Scotty Thiel of Sheboygan to lead the opening circuit. On lap 3, Joey Moughan of Springfield, Ill., who started fifth, dipped under the high-riding Thiel to take second.

On lap 6, Balog began to negotiate heavy lapped traffic on the multi-groove track surface, which allowed Moughan to close the gap slightly. On lap 8, Schneiderman, who started seventh, dove low to take third from Thiel before passing Moughan for second on lap 12.

Two laps later, 11th starter Travis Arenz of Sheboygan, who was making his 410 Sprint Car debut driving for Ozzie Motorsports, flipped in turn four after clipping an infield tire. Arenz was uninjured, but unable to return to the race.

On the restart, Balog pulled away from Schneiderman before Moughan got sideways in turn four and collected Thiel, which resulted in both drivers flipping their machines hard on lap 15. Both drivers were uninjured, but done for the night.

Balog felt pressure from Schneiderman following the ensuing restart with Schneiderman closing the gap along the low groove, while Balog rode the cushion.

The race was slowed for the third time on lap 19 when a yellow flag was displayed for former IRA champion Jack Blackhurst of Hanna City, Ill., who stopped in turn four.

On the restart, Schneiderman stayed dedicated to the inside line, while Balog moved up high. On lap 23, Schneiderman used a big run along the low groove to wrestle the lead away from Balog exiting turn four.

Schneiderman maintained the top spot over the next six laps when lapped traffic became a factor. On lap 29, Balog dove low in turn three to sneak past Schneiderman in dense lapped traffic.

Sixth starter Scott Biertzer of West Bend followed Balog into second on lap 29 with Schneiderman dropping to third.

Balog then cruised over the final lap en route to his 10th IRA victory of the 2020 season, second IRA triumph of the season at The Plymouth Dirt Track and 123rd career IRA A-main victory.

Biertzer recorded a strong second-place finish, Schneiderman placed third, 15th starter Jordan Goldesberry of Springfield, Ill. finished fourth and Mike Reinke of Howards Grove, who started fourth, placed fifth.

In victory lane, Balog was thankful to have the opportunity to regain the lead, after losing the top spot to Schneiderman with just seven laps to go.

“I think I went upstairs too early, but I felt I was slowing down on the bottom too long,’ Balog said. “The track was good and you really had to drive your car to find the right groove. I’m happy to get this win because for a while there it looked like we were going to get beat.”

Biertzer was thrilled with his second-place run.

“It feels awesome to be here with a second-place result tonight,” Biertzer said. “I have to thank my crew for giving me a good car as well as all my sponsors for their support. We couldn’t be here without them.”

Knoxville Speedway regular Schneiderman, who was making his first career appearance at The Plymouth Dirt Track, was dejected in victory lane, after falling from first to third in the span of two laps.

“I’m pretty disgusted with the result,” Schneiderman said. “I’m upset at myself. Bill is a great race car driver, but we came here to win. My crew worked hard to give us the chance to win after we encountered motor problems last night at Dodge County.”

In the 25-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car headliner, polesitter Will Gerrits of Waupun jumped into the lead on the drop of the green flag, while third starter Brandon McMullen snuck under 2018 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Justin Miller of Plymouth, who started on the outside of the front row.

The first of two cautions came out on lap 3 when Blake Wondra of Fond du Lac spun in turn four. Gerrits bolted away from McMullen on the restart and held a solid cushion until lap 7 when Plymouth’s Adam Miller flipped in turn four.

Gerrits commanded the ensuing restart as the leaders back to work their way through lapped traffic on lap 10. Two laps later, McMullen dove low to slip past Gerrits for the top spot in turn four on lap 12.

McMullen held his own along the preferred inside lane around the increasingly one-groove racing surface. On lap 24, Justin Miller worked pass Gerrits to take over second with two laps to go.

McMullen pulled away in the waning laps to notch his 20th career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A main triumph and his 29th career MSA A main victory.

Justin Miller placed second, Gerrits wound up third, 2008 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Lance Fassbender, who started fourth finished fourth and Jack Vanderboom of Dousman charged up from the 11th starting spot to place fifth.

Ryan Ruhl of Coldwater, Mich. was the fastest IRA qualifier with a lap of 11.767 seconds around the third-mile clay oval. Sean Rayhall of Woodstock, Ga. won the 15-lap IRA B main.

Kevin Karnitz of West Bend claimed the 15-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car B main.

The all-Sprint Car program, which featured a total of 59 cars, included 30 IRA 410 Sprint Cars and 29 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars. Cupcake Wonders was the trophy sponsor for the evening.

The next event at The Plymouth Dirt Track will take place next Saturday, Sept. 12 with the PDTR 360 Sprint Cars, Grand Nationals and B Mods, along with a special appearance from the Badger Midgets. The Sept. 12 event will be the final points event of the season for the PDTR 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.

For all remaining 2020 PDTR races, Dennis Darovich of Sheboygan will have his new book “RPM – The Golden Era of Plymouth Dirt Track Racing” for sale under the grandstand for $10.

A portion of the money collected from the sale of the book will be donated to Plymouth Dirt Track Racing.

Brady Bacon Owns Night One of the Second Annual Lake Ozark Non-Wing Nationals

Eldon, MO. (09/05/2020) In a late-night of exhilarating open-wheel action at Lake Ozark Speedway's second running of their Non-Wing Nationals with the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League, thirty-three drivers would sign into the pits all eying the top prize. With over 110 total cars entering the gates in the three divisions of competition, the pristine track would see changes throughout the night: including a lengthy delay for fence repair. After all the excitement and outstanding driving feats by all racers, Brady Bacon would claim the checkers first in a thrilling twenty-five lap feature event.

Early racing action would witness #410 Brady Bacon set the fastest lap in hot lap sessions with a 13.612 second lap time. Heat race winners were #24 Landon Simon, Brady Bacon, #22S Slater Helt, and #311 Zach Daum. The night's High Point Qualifier, racing from starting eighth to finish second in the heat race, was #91 Riley Kreisel.

Starting the field of twenty-three main event racers for twenty-five laps around Lake Ozark Speedway pole-sitter Riley Kreisel and his front-row companion #6 Mario Clouser battle wheel-to-wheel into the first couple of corners. Kreisel would earn the early advantage leading the first few laps of competition with clashes all over the track following behind. With Riley leading the pack, Brady Bacon and Landon Simon would set their sights on the front of the field. Bacon would earn the top spot with a dazzling display of driving, using high-side momentum to take the point with Simon in tow.

Putting on a show of speed Bacon would start to pick off lap-traffic at will, Landon Simon would throw a slide-job attempt upfront for the lead only to be reverted, when, at five laps left of the feature caution would fly for Adam Jones #1a flipping just as the leaders were attempting to pass Jones. With the field bunched and Bacon maintaining the lead, green would fly again as Landon Simon continued to try his hardest to gain the front spot. Trying another slider through the first pair of corners Simon would suffer mechanical issues after clipping the outside wall, retiring to the infield.

Bacon would hold on for the final revolutions around Lake Ozark Speedway earning the feature victory on Night One of the Non-Wing Nationals. Anthony Nicholson #16 would be one of the only drivers to use the low line to perfection, passing ten other drivers on his way to a second-place finish and Hard Charger award as well. Cody Baker #38 and Mario Clouser would battle to the finish-line with Baker edging Clouser to round out the podium, leaving Clouser to finish fourth. Point Leader Riley Kreisel would add to his lead placing in a solid fifth for the event. KSE Racing Products Top Time: #410 Brady Bacon 13.612 second lap time.

Haudenschild Overcomes Blown Tire and Dover Outlasts Cautions to Claim Wild Opening-Night Victories of Two-Day Event at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 5, 2020) - Attrition was the word of the night on Saturday at Huset's Speedway, which hosted a pair of sprint car divisions during the opener of a two-day show.

Both Sheldon Haudenschild and Jack Dover survived a slew of cautions to record feature victories at the high-banked oval.

Haudenschild's feat was especially impressive as he earned his fourth World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series triumph of the season after blowing a right rear tire with only nine laps remaining.

Haudenschild was leading the 35-lap feature at the time and he rallied from the middle of the pack to overcome the incident, which played in his favor thanks to its timing. Haudenschild, who took the lead from Kyle Larson on Lap 8, was the third driver to lose a tire. Eight more cautions featured approximately a dozen drivers in front of Haudenschild suffering a similar fate with a blown right rear tire.

"I've never really been good in the rubber," he said. "Once I had a fresh tire it was just send it mode."

That worked as Haudenschild was able to be more aggressive than the drivers in front of him, who were either conserving tires or blowing tires. Haudenschild advanced into the runner-up position when a caution came out for David Gravel losing a tire on Lap 31. Haudenschild then inherited the lead when Larson became the final driver to lose a right rear tire on the restart.

Haudenschild held off Carson Macedo, who also endured a blown tire on Lap 27, for the dramatic victory.

"I wish it wouldn't have laid rubber, but then again it was still an exciting race," Haudenschild said.

Macedo was the Hard Charger Award winner for passing the most cars as he officially maneuvered from 14th to second place - not counting the cars he passed before the tire blew.

"I was using my stuff up bad early," he said. "Luckily it worked out."

Daryn Pittman, who was the first driver to lose a right rear tire - on Lap 22 when he was running fifth - rallied for a third-place result.

"I don't know how we've ended up back here," he said. "I don't think I could have ran any harder (after restarting with a newer right rear tire following the first caution) because we were a lap away from blowing our second tire."

Brad Sweet, who blew a tire on a restart on Lap 30, earned a fourth-place result to take over sole possession of the World of Outlaws points lead. James McFadden rebounded from a blown tire to round out the top five.

Larson set quick time out of the 37 drivers in qualifying before he won a heat race. Kerry Madsen, Gravel and Haudenschild also captured heat race triumphs. Jacob Allen was the dash winner and Jason Sides claimed the Last Chance Showdown.

The Midwest Sprint Touring Series main event also featured a number of cautions during the second half of the main event. Dover took the lead from polesitter Cody Hansen on Lap 10 with a move through the middle of the track before cautions riddled the remainder of the race. Five cautions occurred between Lap 12 and Lap 16 with a trio of drivers running in the top 10 finding trouble. Dover mastered each restart en route to his first win at the track since August 2013.

"It was good there in the middle," he said. "The bottom was throwing stuff up there. I knew I had to (make the move) quick because those guys behind me would see me do it (and catch on)."

Midwest Sprint Touring Series points leader Eric Lutz finished second with Hansen third, 13th-starting Gregg Bakker fourth and Lee Grosz fifth.

Lee Goos Jr., Lutz and Justin Jacobsma were the heat race winners.

The event finale, which pays a whopping $20,000 to win and $1,000 to start the World of Outlaws main event, is Sunday evening. The Midwest Sprint Touring Series will also be competing. Hot laps kick off the action at 7 p.m.

Cody Lampe Shines in DCRP Labor Day Weekend Spectacular Opener

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (September 5, 2020) – It was a night of first-timers as three different drivers made their way to Dodge City Raceway Park victory lane in Saturday’s Labor Day Weekend Spectacular opener atop the 3/8-mile clay oval in southwest Kansas.

Cody Lampe scored his first career Sprint Car victory with Kyle Wiens and Ondre Rexford also bagging first career DCRP wins in IMCA Sport Modifieds and IMCA Stock Cars, respectively, with Nick Link capturing his first IMCA Modified win of the year and Trevor Schmidt taking his second IMCA Hobby stock win of the season.

Utilizing an iteration of the All Star Circuit of Champions with qualifying setting lineup orders in all five divisions, Lampe earned the pole position for the 15-lap Hambelton Racing DCRP Sprint Car feature and led all the way for his first career win aboard Mike Ochs’ MAP Inc. / Shipman Livestock No. 1x Maxim.

Tyler Knight challenged for the point in the early going before Jetmore’s Lampe slipped away to secure the win ahead of Knight siblings Tyler in second and Jordan in third.

“I managed to get into a rhythm there and the guys gave me a great car,” Lampe said in victory lane. “Those last few laps seemed like forever though, I didn’t know if it as ever going to end.”

In the next feature out, Montezuma’s Ondre Rexford survived a late skirmish for the lead to pick up his first DCRP feature win the 15-lap IMCA Stoc Car main event.

Gregg Schell led the opening 13 circuits, but Rexford moved in to challenge in the final handful of laps. The duo made contact racing down the backstretch on the 13th round with Schell sent tailback and Rexford assuming the point on the restart.

Rexford navigated the final three laps to post the win ahead of Gerald Walker while Schell made his way back into the show position.

“It got a little wild there, at least we finally put it all together tonight,” Rexford said afterward.

Rounding out the night’s first-time DCRP winners, Newton’s Kyle Wiens fought off Brendyn Nordyke over the closing rounds of the 15-lap IMCA Sport Modified feature event.

After winning his heat race, Wiens redrew the front row outside and gunned into the lead at the outset over pole starter Nordyke. Nordyke closed the gap in the final laps and tried unsuccessfully over the final several laps to slip a nose under the leader. While Wiens beat Nordyke to the line by a car-length, Monty Nordyke filled out the podium in third.

“I knew somebody was there, I was just trying to stay smooth and drive my race,” Wiens commented.

In the 15-lap IMCA Modified feature, Rolla’s Nick Link snapped a DCRP victory drought dating back to May of 2018 by racing past his father en route to victory lane.

The former track champion raced from sixth into second behind Tracy Link on the opening circuit and then battled his way into the lead on the seventh round.

“I knew I could rough him up some if I had to,” Link explained in victory lane. “We race out of the same trailer though so we don’t want to do that too much.”

After Tracy Link clipped an infield cone and was forced to the tail, Nick Link held off the advances of Ryan Heger and fast qualifier Kale Beavers over the final three circuits to secure the win.

Rounding out the night’s winners, Hay’s Trevor Schmidt gunned into the lead at the outset of the 15-lap IMCA Hobby Stock feature event and held a solid advantage until a mid-race caution bunched up the field.

Duane Wahrman went to work on Schmidt over the final half of the race, but Schmidt was up to the task and held the point to the checkered flag ahead of Wahrman and Dion Priddy.

Dodge City Raceway Park’s Labor Day Spectacular wraps up on Sunday night with another full slate of Hambelton Racing DCRP Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Hobby Stocks.

Abreu holds of Reutzel for All Star thriller at Attica Raceway Park

Saturday, Sept. 5, 2020

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu and Clute, Texas driver Aaron Reutzel put on a thrilling battle for the $10,000 top prize Saturday, Sept. 5 at Attica Raceway Park. The last 15 laps of the 40 lap Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions feature saw the pair trade sliders inches apart from catastrophe lap after lap. When the checkers flew Abreu took his first ever Attica win on All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Core & Main Night. It was his ninth career All Star victory and came on the 128th appearance of the All Stars at Attica Raceway Park.

“That was so tricky…that’s as slick as it gets for Ohio right there. You know you catch lapped cars and you judge your pace off of theirs. Kemenah was gaining on me on the bottom in front of me and the 11 car was driving away from me on the top. I was just trying to move around. I knew Reutzel or someone was pressuring me… you know you can kind off just sense that. I moved around and I was just way to free on the bottom and I could keep my car really propped up on the top and keep my wing speed up. That gets intense…40 laps and you have to really be patient and know your car will keep coming to you. I kept moving my wing back and it got really cleaned off on the top and I could keep my pace up,” said Abreu beside Curb Records/Whistle Stop Bar and Grill/Selfmade racing/Lucas Oil/ShopRico.com backed #24.

Reutzel, the current All Star point leader, threw everything he could at Abreu but had to settle for a close second. Though it was a huge boost from Friday night when he struggled to a 16th place finish.

“That was all I had. I didn’t realize it was about to end. I don’t know what more I could have done. I got to where I was running the top really hard and he started getting tight. I was kind of playing with the bottom and I was trying to show him I was down there and make him move down and he did for a little bit but I didn’t capitalize and get a good enough run at the time. Our car was really good at the end. I felt like we were getting better and better. It was just hard to get runs to slide him. There were lapped cars there all the time. I had one good opportunity to slide him where I felt like I had a good run on him. We had the 11 on inside of us and he raced me off in the corner and I couldn’t get all the way to the bottom to slide him. All in all it was a great race. I just needed to capitalize sooner. I wish I wouldn’t have tried that slider on the last lap. I wish I would have just bombed it in there and try to get a run down the back stretch. It was a lot better run than last night. I thought the track was phenomenal tonight,” said Reutzel beside his Fischer Body Shop/Folkens Brothers Trucking/XXX Chassis/Nattress Construction backed #87.

Attica point leader Cap Henry made a late race charge to finish third.

“I hung the wing in the truck and just went for it. We struggled there really early and we struggled last night. Zack and Brett and Connor and everyone keeps working really hard on it. It’s been a really fun season,” said Henry of his Dragon’s Milk White/Beer Barrel Bourbon/Pro Auto Wraps/FK Rod Ends backed #4.

Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver took the lead from Larry Kingseed Jr. on lap eight and survived a late race caution to claim his sixth 305 sprint feature win of the season at Attica. It was his third straight victory at the track and the 55th of his career to lead the all-time win list for the division. It was his 10th overall victory of 2020.

It wasn’t easy for Weaver as his arm restraint got hooked on a piece of equipment in the cockpit and he had to drive one handed for awhile.

“It took a lap and a half or so to get it unhooked….I couldn’t move my arms. This is the most features in a season since my second or third year racing when I had 14 or 15 wins. I’m happy to still be able to do this,” said Weaver beside his B&B Drain Service/Hampshire Racing Engines/M&L Excavating backed #1W.

Trey Jacobs and Abreu brought the field to green for the All Star 40-lap feature with Jacobs gaining the early advantage over Abreu, Cale Thomas, Reutzel and Tim Shaffer. After a lapped was scored a multi-car incident in turn one brought out the yellow. When the green flew again Jacobs and Abreu battled side by side with Shaffer and Reutzel in pursuit.

Abreu was able to take the lead on lap five and began to pull away slightly from Jacobs and Shaffer closed in. Jacobs didn’t throw in the towel and steadily gained ground on Abreu and retook the lead on lap 12 just as the caution flew. On the restart Abreu jumped to the high side of the track and battled with Jacobs again, reclaiming the lead on lap 14 as Shaffer and Reutzel went side by side for third.

Abreu built his lead to over two seconds by lap 22 as Jacobs was locked in a battle for Reutzel with Ian Madsen, Shaffer and Cap Henry trying to close. Reutzel was finally able to wrestle second from Jacobs on lap 25 as Abreu encountered heavy lapped traffic. That allowed Reutzel to close on Abreu and with 10 laps to go the battle was on for the win.

Abreu was able to pull away slightly with seven laps to go but Reutzel hung around as Jacobs was locked in a battle with Madsen and Henry for third. After taking the white flag, Reutzel threw a slider on Abreu as the pair nearly touched but Abreu kept his car on the ragged edge of the narrow cushion to maintain the lead and drove to the win over Reutzel, Henry, Madsen and Jacobs.

At the drop of the green for the 25 lap Fremont Fence 305 feature Larry Kingseed Jr. bolted into the lead over Weaver, Steve Rando, Kyle Peters, Matt Lucius, Matt Foos and Jamie Miller. Kingseed built up a commanding lead before the caution flew on lap five. On the restart Weaver applied all kinds of pressure to the youngster and drove into the lead on lap eight.

Weaver was able to pull away from Kingseed who now had his hands full with Rando and Foos. Rando took the second spot with seven laps to go and a caution with five circuits remaining put him right on Weaver’s rear bumper. Weaver got an excellent restart and drove away for the win as Kingseed rebounded to regain second. Kyle Peters came on strong at the end to garner third with Rando and Foos rounding out the top five.

Attica Raceway Park will wrap up the 2020 season with Kistler Racing Products/Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome Plating Presents the Mark Keegan Classic Championship night for the 410 and 305 sprints and late models. It is also a points night for the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group and for the NAPA of Bryan 305 AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales.

Jacobus Scores First Career Victory at Clinton County
Mill Hall, PA –Aaron Jacobus of Corning NY topped the field of 26 RaceSaver Sprint Cars Friday night at the Clinton County Speedway. Noah Jensen of Nescopeck won his second Pro Stock feature of the season. Timmy Bitner of Beech Creek was victorious in both the 270 and 600 feature events. Sam Creveling was the winner of the 4 cylinder division.
Aaron Jacobus started on the front row by luck of the draw. Jacobus led the field as they came out of turn four to lead lap one over Larry McVay of Bordentown, NJ. By lap number seven, Jacobus, McVay, Dale Schweikart of Linden, Josh Beamer of Picture Rocks, and Dakota Schweikart of Linden began to encounter lapped traffic. The 3/8th mile oval created excitement with sprint cars racing for position around all four corners of the speedway.
The events only caution came out on lap number 11 for Reed Thompson who stopped on the speedway. On the restart, Jacobus held off the challenges from McVay and Schweikart who were in a contested battle for second. Schweikart won that battle on lap number thirteen. Tylor Cochran of Williamsport, who started eleventh, moved into the top five at the race’s mid-way point, and took the fourth position one circuit later. On lap 16, the leaders again were in heavy lapped traffic. Schweikart began to gain on Jacobus, but how each driver navigatedthrough lapped traffic could be the deciding factor of the race. With 2 laps remaining, Jacob made a power move to put a few lapped cars between him and Schweikart as the duo exited turn number four. At the checkered flag it was Jacobus over Schweikart, Cochran, McVay and Scott Lutz. Sixth through tenth were Dakota Schweikart, Josh Beamer, Garret Bard, Ryan Lynn, and Dylan Proctor. Heat races were won by Proctor, McVay and Jacobus.
Marc Bitler of Williamsport led the opening laps of the Pro Stock feature. Noah Kissinger battled with Bitleras Corey Long and Rich Fye were also in contention. Noah Jensen, who started ninth, worked this way up through the field and broke into the top five on lap number three. Two circuits later, Jensen was pressuring Bitler for the top position. At the mid-way point of the race, Jensen led Long, Bitler, Kissinger, and AY Schilling. As Jensen tried to distance himself from the field, the Pro Stocks drivers in 2nd through seventh jockeyed for position. AY Schilling passed Bitlerforthethird spot on lap number 12 And Ray Rothfuss advanced into the top five in the final laps of the race. At the finish, it was Jensen over Long, Schilling, Bitler and Rothfuss. AJ Stroup finished sixth followed by Noah Kissinger, Tommy Dawson, Fye and Kevin VanAmburg. Heat race winners were won by Shilling and Long.
Timmy Bitner of Beech Creek had a stellar performance during the night by winning both the 270 and 600 Micro feature events. Nick Whitesel lead the opening circuit of the 270 micro sprint feature. Doug Reinard took the lead at the completion of lap number two. On lap number four the red flag came when Jeffrey Weaver of Lock Haven rolled his sprint car in turn number four. On the restart, Bitner who started ninth made the winning pass for the lead. Whitesel, Reinard, Spotts and Jeff Haefke battled for the top five. The caution waved on lap number 8 when Buddy Kramer and Levi Brungard stopped on the speedway. That provided Whitesel and Reinard an opportunity to restart on Bitner’s back bumper. Bitner passed a lapped car on the white flag lap and went onto record the win over Whitesel, Ethan Spotts, Jeff Haefke and Troy Whitesel. Six through tenth were Dan Wertman, Logan Hammaker, Mitchell Holden, Kyler Shal and Dustin Roberts. Heat races were won by Nick Whitesel, Troy Whitesel, and Weaver.
Bitner and Trevor Teats started on the front row of the 600 Micro Sprint feature event. A four car accident on the opening lap in turn one brought out the red flag involving Garret Bard, Derek Swartz, Dan Tripoli, and Shawn Doebrick. Mikey Smith of Scranton took the lead on the restart and appeared to be the fastest car of the night. As Smith came through turns three and four, something on his car broke and ended his night. Bitner then inherited the lead with AJ Bast, Jeffrey Weaver, Teats, and Tyson Mowery in the top five. On lap number 6 the caution came out for Jeffrey Weaver. As the race restarted, Bitner led Teats, Johnny Smith, Mowery, and Jeff Gyuina. The top five racing order remained unchanged in the final laps, providing Bitner with his second win of the night. Sixth through tenth were Mitchell Holden, AJ Bast, Weaver, Doebrick and Dermot Thompson. Heat races were won by Bard and Weaver

Eric Miller and Jonathan Stringfellow led the full field of 4-Cylinders to the green flag. Stringfellow led the opening laps of the race, before 4thplace starter Sam Crevling took the lead on lap number 4. The caution waved on lap number five for Virgil Meyer and again on lap number seven for Tim Muthler. Creveling was strong on both restarts to hold off his challengers. When the checkered flag waived, Creveling edged out Josh Morton for the win. Sterling Kepner was third over Tyler Watson and Michael Luther. Sixth through tenth were Kennedey Courter, Scott Englert, Dylan Craft, Eric Miller, and Virgil Meyer.
In the Streetcar drag racing competition, Jeremy Swank of Somersetquickly became the crowd favorite. Swank competed in a Dodge Neon in a field dominated by pick-up trucks. A single eliminationbracket was used to determine the finalist for the one lap drag race. In the finals, Swank lined up again Stewart Majewsky of Houtzdale who was driving a Chevy 3500 HD Truck. Majewsky had the lead as the duo exited turn two. However, Swank carried his momentum out of the turns and caught the truck going down the back stretch. Swank made a pass for the lead as they entered turns three and four. The crowd cheered for Swank and his neon as he raced to the finish line to earn a trophy and $200 cash prize.

Losh Earns $1,000 for Winning Modified Feature;

Adams, Ronk, Bishop and Headley Jr. Also Star

In Labor Day Weekend Classic

Friday Night at Gas City I-69 Speedway

GAS CITY, Ind., Sept. 5 – With extra money on the line the modified division took center stage at the Labor Day Weekend Classic at Gas City I-69 Speedway Friday night. The star of the show was no stranger to victory lane, as Derek Losh of Rensselaer, Ind., led all 20 laps and earned $1,000 for his seventh feature victory of the season at the Grant County quarter-mile dirt oval.

Several non-wing sprint car drivers who haven’t won at Gas City were the main players in the 25-lap sprint car feature. Only one could end the night with his first win, and that turned out to be Max Adams of Loomis, Calif., who nipped Kyle Simon of Covington, Ohio by 0.091 seconds at the checkered in the 25-lap main event.

The 15-lap winged outlaw 600cc micro-sprint feature went non-stop, with Craig Ronk of Warsaw, Ind. getting the victory.

Defending track champions Andy Bishop of Gas City and James Headley Jr. of Wabash, Ind. were triumphant in the 15-lap street stock and hornet features, respectively.

Losh started third in the modified feature, had the lead by Turn 2 on the first lap, withstood three restarts and some lapped traffic, and beat Dylan Woodling of Warsaw, Ind. to the checkered by 1.383 seconds.

The best battle was for second. Woodling got the position by passing Tony Anderson of Lima, Ohio on the outside working lap 11 to eventually earn the runner-up honors. Anderson pressured him throughout but had to settle for third. Dillon Nusbaum of Warsaw finished fourth and Zeke McKenzie of Claypool, Ind. was fifth.

Superior Sales and Service, Aggressive, R & R Transmission, Rensselaer Iron and Metal and Talbert Manufacturing sponsor Losh’s No. 21.

Simon started on the pole in the 20-car sprint car feature and led the first 23 laps followed by Adams; Dustin Ingle of Lima, Ohio, and a high-riding J.J. Hughes of Indianapolis, the current point leader.

Simon’s 2.859-second lead over Adams was wiped out with 13 laps down when Brian VanMeveren of Woodbury, Minn. spun in Turn 4 to bring out the first caution. On the restart Hughes passed Ingle and Adams to leap from fourth to second.

Simon had built his advantage back up to 1.130 seconds over Hughes by lap 15 when the sixth-, seventh- and eighth-place drivers — Evan Mosley of Lapel, Ind.; Matt McDonald of Pittsboro, Ind. and Korbyn Hayslett of Troy, Ohio — crashed between Turns 1 and 2. Shortly thereafter Shane Cockrum of Benton, Ill. spun in Turn 2 while eighth.

Adams passed Hughes to regain second at the start-finish line on lap 20. On the next lap there was contact between the pair which resulted in Hughes flipping violently between Turns 1 and 2, with his car landing upside down on its roll cage. Luckily a very disappointed Hughes climbed out under his own power.

Adams drew alongside Simon on the backstretch on laps 22 and 23 and made the pass stick on lap 24. Simon was just 0.091 seconds behind at the checkered. Veteran Matt Westfall of Pleasant Hill, Ohio came from eleventh to finish third. Ingle was fourth and Anthony D’Alessio of Gas City rounded out the top five.

Adams was in the famous Paul Hazen No. 57 usually driven by 2018 track champion Clinton Boyles of Cedar Lake, Ind., who was competing in a USAC midget race in his home state of Missouri Friday night. The winning DRC chassis is powered by a Kercher-prepped engine and it’s sponsored by Physical Medicine Consultants and KECO Coatings.

Simon’s DRC/Claxton is sponsored by USI Cable Corp., Mark Knupp Muffler & Tire and Fortney Performance. Ray Marshall Motorsports, Buckeye Machine and DPI Ink can be seen on Westfall’s Maxim/Hampshire, which won here July 17.

Brayden Clark, 17, of Tipton, Ind. was the race’s hard charger, as he started 18th and finished sixth to earn an extra $100 from A.J. and Matt Brookmyer. His family’s DRC is sponsored by G&G Oil, Quality Pallet and State Farm Insurance.

The Brookmyers also gave a new right-rear Hoosier tire to the first alternate, who was Parker Frederickson of Kokomo, Ind. His Maxim advertises L.M. Construction, Bell Maintenance and New Horizons Home Health Care.

Two other drivers also flipped during the program in addition to Hughes, but no one was transported for medical treatment afterwards. Dallas Hewitt of Fletcher, Ohio was the fastest among his group when he flipped in Turn 2 in the second sprint qualifying session with two laps down. Billy Cribbs of Muncie, Ind. flipped in Turn 2 and onto the backstretch at the start of the third sprint heat.

Ronk, 20, started second in the micro-sprint feature, dipped under polesitter Kole Kirkman of Kokomo, Ind. in Turn 3 on the second lap, and led the rest of the way in the non-stop 15-lapper. Kole Kirkman finished second, 3.045 seconds behind, with Todd Kirkman, also of Kokomo, third. Darin Naida of Adrian, Mich. placed fourth and Connor Wolf rounded out the top five.

Joe Mooney of Etna Green, Ind. owns the winning CS9, which is powered by a Brady Morgan Suzuki. The Car Company of Warsaw, Ind. is the team’s primary sponsor.

Bishop started second and led all the way in the 15-lap street stock feature. He had more than a 1-second lead by lap five with the Thompson Trucking/R & R Transmission No. 14. He had stretched that to 2.669 seconds when a yellow flew with 14 laps down after Justin Long of Lima, Ohio and Jeremy Johns crashed in Turn 4. But Bishop’s restart was spot-on, and he had a 0.274-second lead over Bill Bradley of Marion, Ind. at the checkered.

The real battle was for second between Bradley, Dave Fritz of Winamac, Ind., and modified winner Derek Losh, who finished in that order. Bradley started way back in 16th. Jeffery Jessup of Union City, Ind. rounded out the top five.

Headley Jr. led the first two laps of the hornet feature before his father, James Headley of Marion, Ind., dipped under him on the frontstretch to lead laps three through five. Headley Jr. regained the lead by using the low line in Turn 2 on lap six, and was never again headed.

Gage Allen of Warren, Ind. surprised Headley by getting second in Turn 2 on lap 11, but Headley had the spot back by the backstretch. Headley Jr.’s advantage over his father at the line was 0.507 seconds, but the two cars were so evenly matched their fastest race laps were only 0.005 apart.

Allen finished third over Kolton Sollars of LaFontaine, Ind. and Mark Casto of Marion, Ind.

The Headleys are sponsored by Dudding’s Heating and Cooling, Garriott Electric, Edwards Automotive, TJR Trucking and Headley’s Tree Service.

Alan Ram led all eight laps of the AMCA (Antique Motorcycle Club of America) motorcycle race in a 1942 Harley Davidson. He and his fellow riders are participating in a meet at Gas City Park this weekend.

The large crowd on hand also enjoyed a fireworks show to celebrate Labor Day.

Next Friday night, Sept. 11, is the track’s “Salute to First Responders/Battle of the Badges” in honor of those who were lost and those who responded to the terrorist attacks against America on Sept. 11, 2001, and those who serve the public as first responders today. Hot laps are slated to start at 6:30 p.m. with racing at 7:30 p.m. Sprint cars, USAC Midwest Thunder SpeeD2 midgets, modifieds, street stocks and hornets are on the card.

A special four-lap “Battle of the Badges” race will feature four hornet drivers representing local first responders.

James Headley will drive for the Grant County Sheriff’s Department, while James Headley Jr. will represent the Gas City Police Department. Gabe “Scrappy” Wilkins of Gas City will drive for the Gas City EMT/Rescue Squad, while Brandon Lines of Marion, Ind. will represent the Gas City Fire Department.

Each driver will decorate their race cars in honor of the first responders they represent. A special trophy will be given to the winning driver and department.

A collection will be taken for the Tim Eckstein Scholarship Fund. Eckstein, the former Gas City Police Chief, died unexpectedly on July 8 at the age of 54.

First responders and their families will be admitted for half price with proper identification.

The track will be dark on Friday, Sept. 18, but on Saturday, Sept. 19 it will be the site of the Gas City Power Pull, an Indiana Pulling League-sanctioned truck and tractor pull.

The third annual James Dean Classic is moving from Thursday, Sept. 24 to Friday, Sept. 25. An exciting announcement about that event is expected to be made soon.

The track’s 2020 season will conclude Oct. 2-3 with the second annual Fall Festival of Speed. Open-wheel cars will be featured on Friday and stock cars will be the main attraction on Saturday.

McMullen bags first MSA
Harry Neitzel Tribute triumph

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 4, 2020 – Three-time Midwest Sprint Car Association champion Brandon McMullen Oshkosh added one of the MSA’s crown jewels to his trophy case by claiming the fourth annual Harry Neitzel Tribute Race Friday, Sept. 4, at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis.

The prestigious 14th MSA event of the 2020 season, which was run in honor of the late Beaver Dam resident, who was one of the most beloved figures in the MSA and the entire Southeastern Wisconsin racing community, drew a field of 23 competitors to the “horsepower half mile.”

After an aborted start for a four-car incident in turn two involving Nick Daywalt of Hubertus, Justin Miller of Plymouth, Chris Clayton and Waldo and Plymouth’s Justin Erickson, outside front row starter Tony Wondra of Campbellsport outpowered polesitter Tim Haddy of Waupun to take the lead on the opening circuit of the 20-lap MSA main event.

On lap 2, Brandon McMullen, who started fourth, worked his way past Haddy into second and quickly set his sights on the leader. By lap 5, McMullen had reeled in Wondra and attempted to dive low in turn three to take over the spot.

However, Wondra battled back along the outside groove to maintain the top spot in turn four. On lap 7, the leaders began to encounter lapped traffic, which allowed McMullen to again move within striking distance of Wondra.

On lap 11, Wondra drifted high over the cushion in turn four, which allowed McMulllen to seize the top spot along the low groove. Once ahead, McMullen opened up a solid lead, while fifth starter Travis Arenz of Sheboygan, who entered the race with a five-point lead over McMullen in the MSA point standings, charged in to work around Wondra into second on lap 23.

McMullen cruised over the final two laps to post his 28th career MSA A-main victory, fifth MSA main event victory of the 2020 season and first Harry Neitzel Tribute Race trophy.

Arenz finished second, Wondra ended up third, 2005 MSA champion Lance Fassbender moved up from the 13th starting spot to place fourth and ninth starter Jack Vanderboom of Dousman rounded out the top five.

After the race, McMullen ranked the victory at the top of his 28 career MSA wins.

“This race really means a lot to me,” McMullen said. “Harry was a really good to us when we first came into the 360s and he was friends with everyone. Pretty much everyone in this pit area tonight knows who Harry was and what he meant to racing in this area. This wins means a ton. I’d say it is the biggest win of my career so far.”

Arenz was satisfied with his second-place run on the high-speed half mile.

“I can’t complain too much about second place,” Arenz said. “It was a good run and I’m happy with it.”

Wondra gave McMullen all he could handle through the first half of the race before ending up with a spot on the podium.

“We were really strong in the beginning,” Wondra said. “This race would have been sweet to win. We just didn’t have anything for those guys at the end tonight.”

Heat race victories went to Travis Arenz, Brandon McMullen and Tony Wondra.

The next two events on the MSA schedule will be at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds on Saturday, Sept. 5 and Saturday, Sept. 12 with grandstand gates opening at 4:30 p.m. with hot laps at 5:30 p.m. and racing to follow.

Heath Wrangles Round 1 of Montana Round Up at Electric City Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GREAT FALLS, Mont. (Sept. 4, 2020) - Colton Heath topped the opening night of the 26th annual Montana Round Up on Friday evening at Electric City Speedway.

Heath maneuvered from his fifth starting position to score the 360ci sprint car victory at the dirt oval, earning the $1,500 top prize and building momentum for the remainder of the three-day event.

Shaffer breaks All Star dry spell with Attica win; Bores earns 1st late model win of 2020

Friday, Sept. 4, 2020

by Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – It had been since February 2019 since Tim Shaffer stood in victory lane with the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobil 1. The Aliquippa, Pa. driver – a four time series champion – ended that drought Friday, Sept. 4 at Attica Raceway Park, opening the Attica Ambush with his 67th career All Star win, leading all 40 laps.

The victory was the second on the season at Attica for Shaffer and the 19th of his career at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant on Murphy Tractor and Equipment/Stillwater Metals/Core & Main Presented by Kistler Racing Products/Kistler Engines Night. Shaffer’s victory aboard the Brian Grove Racing #28 came on the 127th appearance of the All Stars at Attica Raceway Park.

“It’s been awhile…I haven’t run with them (All Stars) steady. But, we’re building a team. We can only run a limited schedule and boy we have to make it worthwhile when we do. Hats off to my guys, Rider Engines, RPM Chassis, Momentum Shocks…just everybody stepped up and here we are,” said Shaffer beside his Canton Erectors/Rudzik Excavating backed machine.

Shaffer, who pays very close attention to the shock packages on the sprint car he drives, said that is the key to winning.

“You have to pay attention to the shocks. These kids are getting harder and harder to beat so we have to get our car really nice. Actually I have one of Keith (Berner) shocks on the right front and the other three are Momentum. They are just all working together. I got some stuff from Keith for my late model too. It’s all about enjoying yourself and this is about making a living and the late model is for playing,” Shaffer added.

Shaffer had to survive a restart with five laps to go and made a change in his racing line, moving to the high side.

“You have to move around. This is Attica and if you don’t move around you’re going to get your ass handed to you. It definitely changes throughout the night and I just hoped I was doing the right things,” the winner added.

Bixby, Oklahoma’s Shane Stewart gave Shaffer all he could handle late in the race but settled for second in the Indy Race Parts #71.

“We haven’t raced that much together Bernie and I but every time we do this car is fast. I started to fade a little the last 10 laps, I think we were running out of fuel. Hopefully we can make some adjustments and contend again tomorrow,” said Stewart of his Jonestown KOA/Capital Renegade/Indy Race Parts backed machine.

Fairland, Indiana’s Cale Thomas made a late race charge to round out the podium in the Pete Grove Racing #70.

“I feel back to about 10th at the beginning and I just had to remember this is the Attica I grew up learning to race on from about five or six years ago. I moved the wing back and was able to race the middle of the track,” said Thomas of his Lumber and Things/River City Wood/Lutes Custom Cabinetry, Premier Pallet backed sprint car.

Bellevue, Ohio’s Mike Bores took the lead on lap 18 of the Dirt Nerds Podcast/Propane.com Late Model A-main and withstood a caution with just six laps to go to win his first feature of the season and taking home the $3,000 payday. It was Bores sixth career win at Attica.

“I was nervous when I saw that 79 car (Doug Drown) up to third on that last restart. I was counting the laps down and thought ‘hear comes hammer down Doug Drown.’ I want to thank my wife and little boy, my crew, Noah, Frank, Nick, Brent, Burns Electric, Underground Utilities, Accuforce, Clements Racing Engines and Roeder Racing,” said Bores in victory lane.

Cale Conley and Jac Haudenschild brought the field to green for the 40-lap All Star feature but the initial start was called back and Conley was moved back a row for jumping. When the green flew again Shaffer bolted into the lead with Haudenschild, Conley, Trey Jacobs, eighth starter Shane Stewart and Cory Eliason giving chase. While Haudenschild hounded Shaffer, Conley and Stewart battled side by side over several laps for third.

A caution with 11 laps in kept Shaffer out of lapped traffic and he again pulled away when the green reappeared while Haudenschild and Stewart battled for second. Stewart took the runner-up spot on lap 18 just before a caution flew at the half-way point.

On the ensuing restart Stewart drove to Shaffer’s outside to challenge but Shaffer hit his marks and began to pull away again, building his lead to nearly a second and half with 14 laps to go. With 10 circuits remaining heavy lapped traffic faced Shaffer with Stewart, Haudenschild, Conley, Eliason and Thomas staying close. At one point Conley, Eliason and Thomas were three wide battling for fourth.

The final caution flew with five laps to go when Conley and Eliason made contact battling for fifth with Eliason stopping with heavy front end damage. When the green flew Shaffer moved his restart marks to the high side of one and two and it paid off as he drove away for the win over Stewart, Thomas, Conley, Paul McMahan and the night’s hard charger Rico Abreu who charged from 23rd to sixth. Haudenschild, Ian Madsen, Cole Duncan and TJ Michael, who came from last, rounded out the top 10.

Defending Attica late model champion Doug Drown and Jerry Bowersock led the field to green for the 30 lap late feature with Drown grabbing a commanding lead over Rob Anderzack, Bowersock, Dave Hornikel, Devin Shiels and Matt Irey.

Irey worked his way up to second on lap 11 and was closing on Drown when the leader got tangled up with a lapped car and spun. Irey now led Anderzack, Bores, Hornikel and Ryan Missler. Just as Irey was pulling away something broke and he went to the pits, handing the lead to Bores who took second just a half lap earlier.

Bores pulled away on the restart as Anderzack had to deal with Bowersock and Hornikel with Missler, Shiels and Markham in pursuit. With eight laps to go the car on the move was Drown who had worked his way from the tail up to fourth.

A final caution with six laps to go put Anderzack, Bowersock, Drown and Missler right on Bores’ rear bumper. Bores got an excellent restart while Drown blasted into second and started to close on the leader. Bores made no mistakes the final hand full of laps to score the win over Drown, Markham, Anderzack and Bowersock.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Saturday, Sept. 5 on Core & Main/All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads Presented by Kistler Racing Products/Kistler Engines Night. The All Stars will be gunning for $10,000 while the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints will battle for a $1,000 pay day.

Holmes Gets First 360 Win at Skagit Speedway

9/3/20

Alger, WA - 17 year old Tanner Holmes of Jacksonville, OR won his first career feature in 360 Sprints with a win over the Budweiser 360 division at Skagit Speedway on round 12 of Skagit Speedway TV. Scott Miller and Tyler Sundstrom joined Holmes as winners on the night.

After setting quick time, Holmes would roll a zero for invert and after advancing through his heat race, sat on the pole for the main event. Setting the early pace, Holmes was trailed closely by Trey Starks as the pair rapidly approached lapped traffic. On lap fifteen, Starks threw a massive slider at Holmes that didn’t stick, resulting in Trey flipping and resetting the field. With Garen Linder now hot on his heels, Holmes took off again and did a fantastic job of cutting through slower traffic time and again to take the main event win ahead of Linder and Eric Fisher.

Scott Miller would lead all but one of the laps in the Skagit Aggregates Modifieds main event for his first Skagit Speedway win. Miller briefly lost the lead to Tom Sweatman on lap five, but Sweatman would bobble and spin in turn one, giving the lead right back to Miller. Miller endured multiple restarts and a stiff challenge late from Craig Moore to secure the win, relegating Moore to runner up. Sweatman moved back up the through the field to finish third.

Tyler Sundstrom made his first Skagit Speedway appearance pay off by winning the Outlaw Tuner feature. Sundstrom drove past Zach Dalrymple on lap three and was unchallenged the rest of the way in taking the win. Rick Young held off Dalrymple in an entertaining battle for second place.

Campos, H. Bloom Earn Third Wins Of Season; Alberding, Kennerly, Crum, And Holmes Also Score Victories At CGS

By Stephanie Deatherage

Cottage Grove, Oregon- Cottage Grove Speedway raced for the sixth occasion on Saturday, August 29th with over ninety entries from the states of Oregon, Washington, and California making the trip. Some new classes were seen for the first time this year while three others were on tap for their sixth race of the year. The IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Mods, and IMCA Sport Compacts were once more in attendance while the Limited Sprints were back from a week off. Both the Wingless Sprints and the Northwest Focus Midgets were in the house for the first time in 2020.

In the Limited Sprint main event, Justin Lemon was the early race leader. The Cottage Grove teenager maintained the position until he was overtaken on lap four by Scott Fox. Fox, of Newberg, held on to the top spot until he was passed on the ninth circuit. Jared Hood was the individual to pass Fox for the first place position. Hood, from Grants Pass, was very fast but unfortunately got tangled up with a lapped car on lap seventeen.

Jacksonville’s Tanner Holmes inherited the lead with just eight laps to go. Holmes, fresh off a multi-week trip east of the Rocky Mountains, dominated the balance of the distance to win his first race of the year at Cottage Grove and his second overall Sprint Car win of 2020.

Winston youngster Kyle Alberding was the runner-up followed by Scott Fox, in third. Kinzer Cox, from Cottage Grove, started dead last and ended the night fourth while fifth place went to Brian Boswell, of Roseburg.

The Northwest Focus Midgets had their second race of the week in two different states. The night was reserved for their annual Heroes Race in which all the participants raced in honor of their specific hero. This year’s edition was presented by Triple XXX Race Co.

Marysville, Washington pilot J.D. Dryden set the tone early by blazing the trail for the field on the first lap. Jared Peterson, of Stanwood, Washington, would get around Dryden to take over the honors the second time they passed the start/finish line. Peterson, driving the In-Laws Racing entry owned by Jolene and Mark Steen, was very swift and attempted to separate from the rest of the field.

As Peterson began to check out, he was quickly accompanied by a potential challenger in Chance Crum. Crum, from Snohomish, Washington, and racing the Carla and Gaylon Stewart entry normally driven by Colton Heath, stayed close with Peterson for most of the race but could not quite figure out how to get around him. Crum’s opportunity finally came on the twenty-eighth lap.

Once Chance Crum successfully got to the front he did not look back. Chance would earn his third Northwest Focus Midget race of 2020 and his tenth overall victory this year. Crum also won in the 1200 division at Deming Speedway the night before in his native Washington. Jared Peterson was a respectable second with third place being Guy Tow Jr., of Kelso, Washington. J.D. Dryden settled for fourth while Wilsonville’s Elijah Gibbs got fifth.

The Wingless Sprint main would be a wild one. Salem’s Tim Alberding held the first place marker down for the vast majority of the race. On a late restart, on lap twenty-seven, he was passed by Kinzer Cox and fell back to third. Cox went over the top of the third and fourth turns giving the lead to Roseburg’s Matt Hein. Hein, in the Brett Smith owned mount, went off the top of turns three and four giving the lead back to Tim Alberding. Alberding remained the leader in the final few laps to win his second Wingless Sprint victory of the current campaign.

McMinnville’s Lance Hallmark slipped into second in the final laps while Matt Hein crossed the wire third. The rest of the top five would consist of the father and son combination of Rob Lindsey, from Sherwood, and Wilsonville’s Chad in fourth and fifth.

The IMCA Modified feature was a thriller too with several lead changes and close action all the way to the end. Eugene’s Paul Rea got to the front first on the opening lap but would get passed by Curtis Towns on lap two. Towns, of Cottage Grove, held on the lead until lap four when Springfield veteran Aaron Sheelar made it past him.

Sheelar and Towns stayed side-by-side for several laps and exchanged the lead on three occasions. Towns re-secured first place on lap eight and remained there for some time. Curtis would feel some heat in the last ten laps as John Campos put an enormous amount of pressure on him.

Campos, of Keizer, finally managed to beat Towns to the line on lap twenty-one only to lose the position to Towns the next time around. As both drivers came to the start-finish line John Campos would edge out Curtis Towns by 0.035 seconds. It is Campos’ second straight main event win and his third overall of the 2020 season. Curtis Towns was a close second while Jake Mayden, from Springfield, was third. Aaron Sheelar ended his night fourth over fifth finishing Albert Gill, of Medford.

Austin Petray was quick out of the box in the IMCA Sport Mod race. The Medford driver stayed out in front until lap seven when Hunter Bloom navigated his way past him shortly after a restart. Bloom, of Eugene, went on to pace the field the rest of the distance and scored his third win of 2020 at CGS.

Roseburg racers Jordan Henry and Doug Coffman were second and third. David Schmidt, also of Roseburg, was fourth while fifth went to Dustin Comer, from Springfield, after starting dead last.

Lastly, in the IMCA Sport Compacts, it was Jeremy DeGroot cracking the whip in the early goings. DeGroot, of Cottage Grove, remained in first place until lap six. Michael Kennerly, from the Douglas County town of Union Gap, was the one to show the way. Kennerly would feel an enormous amount of pressure late in the race but managed to beat out second place by a mere 0.050 seconds. It is his first win at Cottage Grove this year.

The driver to finish in second was Ricky Ashley, of Thurston and driving for car owner Randy Kuhl, while credited with third would be Jeremy DeGroot. Kerry Cooper, of Cottage Grove, wound up fourth while Eugene’s Brad Moffett was fifth.

Cottage Grove Speedway will be in action for two nights this coming Labor Day Weekend. Saturday, September 5th, and Sunday, the 6th, will have Limited Sprints, IMCA Modifieds, Late Models, IMCA Sport Mods, Street Stocks, and IMCA Sport Compacts on the bill.

By Jim Balentine

(Mercer, Pa)

After rain all day Thursday and Friday Michaels Mercer Raceway defeated the odds and ended their regular season with the end of summerblowout. 4 new faces graced victory Lane for the first time While two added to their win totals.

The King family has been a major part of the modified scene since Rex Sr began his career in 1982... since then Sr and Jr have racked up many wins in the modified class a various speedways and tonight Rex Jr picked up his seventh career win at the Mercer speed plant defeating his dad who came from tenth spot to end up second. Kyle fink was running the race of his life at Mercer trying to win his first career big block modified win after several small block wins at the speedway. He kept King Jr at bay until a lapped car got In the way and King Jr went on around him on the outside. King Sr then would get around Fink as well to finish second to his son. Fink would end up 3rd, Brad Rapp 4th and Skip Moore 5th.

The 305 sprint feature began with central Pennsylvania stand out Garrett Bard on the pole along side last week‘s winner Greg Dobrosky. Bard would takeoff from the pole and was never challenged until the last few laps to record his first career at Mercer after winning his first career at Clinton County the week before. Jeremy Kornbau made a last ditch attempt on the last few laps to get around Bard but he would end up finishing second. Kyle Colwell and Logan McCandless finishes where they started in 3rd and 4th, and 2 time winner Jake Gomola 5th.

Chas Wolbert Who won the very first crate modified show ever at Mercer picked up his second win of the season defeating young Brandon Ritchey who for a while, was on his way to winning his first career feature at the speedway. Ritchey from his outside pole position let the first 3/4 of the race until entering turn one and encountering a lapped car which enabled Wolbert to go around on the high side and pulled awayfor a convincing victory. Ritchey would end up a career best 2nd, Eric Gabany who started last moved up 11 positions to finish 3rd, Preston Cope and Kyle Martell rounded out the top 5.

In the mini stock nightcap once again and it went down to the wire as Adam early to for 19 years did not raise a car scored his first ever feature win in a strange feature where every single leader had an issue. DJ McRae and Mike Porterfield led the field to green Emily Stoyer who inherited the lead early on went to the pits with mechanical issues and DJ McRae who appeared to have won the race twice lost a wheel coming to turn four for the white flag lap it was a back-and-forth battle with eight time winner Bill Fuchs in hot pursuit from the tail going into turn three in the final lap they went for wide and Aley was able to capture the win And as he was coming down for the checker he blew his transmission and barely held off Pete Blaczak for the nailbiting win. 15 time winner Blaczak finished 2nd, Summer Pitts and career best 3rd, Trevin Schaffer a career best 4th and DJ McCrae who feel back to 5th

In the Young Gun Junior Sprints the McAndrew brothers dominated winning both events. Colten McAndrew 12 years old from Apollo,Pa won the Open class and his brother8 year old Mason McAndrew won the Stock class.

RYAN RUSHES TO WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY SPRINT WIN AS JACOBS COLLECTS TITLE; GENTRY'S LATE MODEL WIN LOCKS UP CROWN; ALEXANDER WINS 1st SUPER STOCK MAIN WHILE WILSON GRABS CHAMPIONSHIP; HENSEL'S 5th MINI STOCK WIN EARNS TITLE

Orrville, Ohio

Saturday, August 29, 2020

By Mike Swanger

It was Season Championship night at 'Orrville's Historic Oval' with three of the four class' of cars having multitude options for drivers winning the championships. The only one that was secure was the Pine Tree Towing & Recovery Sprints as Wooster's Dean Jacobs would claim his second straight title by just starting the feature and he would finish 7th to lock it up. Henry Malcuit took the pole position and quickly open up a good size lead over Jordan Ryan with Trey Jacobs in third. Following a caution on lap eight, Malcuit would lead the pack into turn three where he slipped high and slowed just for a split second and that allowed both Ryan and Trey Jacobs to get past and Dean Jacobs would bounce off the turn four wall losing a couple of places. Malcuit would gather himself back up and battle with Trey Jacobs for second Running the high side in turn one and two, Jacobs would tag the wall on lap 16 and Chris Myers would move into third as Malcuit started to close in on Ryan. Two laps later, Ricky Peterson slipped past Trey Jacobs for fourth as R J jacobs challenged Trey for that position. Coming to the white flag, Malcuit closed in on Ryan for the lead but as they crossed the finish line, Ryan of Castalia and his America's Best Bow, Ignition Logistics and Burns Electric #19r won by a car length for his first win. For Malcuit, it would be a season best second place finish with Myers third followed by Peterson with Trey, R J and Dean Jacobs in fifth, sixth and seventh. Heat winners were Myers and R J Jacobs.

For the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Models, Wooster's J R Gentry would be the points leader and needed to finish fourth or better to claim the championship and would start third in the feature behind Ryan Markham who was second in the points and started on the pole. As the green flag flew to start the race, Markham would take the lead with Gentry in his tire tracks. Outside front row starter Mitch Caskey fell back to third on the start with Justin Chance in fourth. Gentry would try different lines to try to get around Markham to no avail and as the pair came out of turn four to finish lap 12, Markham's car would slow and Gentry would make contact with Markham, who would pull into the infield with a broken belt. The race would continue with Gentry and his El Campesino Restaurant, Skurts Custom Apparel and Holmes Pest Control #14 held onto the lead with Caskey in second followed by Chance and then a battle between Mike Bores and Brad Malcuit for fourth. With the laps dwindling down, Gentry's car began to get loose in the corners and Caskey closed in and as they came down to the checkered flag, Gentry would win his third feature of the year by less than a car length and win the championship. In the ten points races this year, Gentry never finished out of the top ten. Chance held on to finish third with Bores in fourth ahead of Malcuit. Gentry and Markham topped the heat races as Nick Cox was the Accu-Force Shocks/Kar Connection hard charger.

The McKenzie Concrete Super Stocks championship had many scenarios going into the race with who finishing where would decide the champion. The clear cut option would be for points leader John Wilson to win the feature or finish in front of Tyler Wiles and Don Rutt. Brandon Craver would use the outside pole position to grab the lead with Wilson in second and Chase Alexander in third. Alexander would take second on lap five and move in on Craver for the lead. Driving the Palmer & Sons Excavating, Rich's Tire & Service Center and Lincolnway Pizza #15, Alexander powered past Craver coming out of turn two on lap eight. Moving through the field from his seventh starting place, Bob Daugherty motored past Wilson on the same circuit and on the next lap slipped past Craver for second. Daugherty would pull right to the back of Alexander's machine and in the last five laps tried everything he could to get by Alexander but the Orrville driver kept the door closed and posted his first win of the season by less than a car length. Craver finished third with Wilson's fourth place finish earning him the championship. Don Baney filled out the top five. Posting the heat wins were Alexander and Craver.

Different drivers had championship hopes going into the feature for the JoyRide Transport Mini Stocks with Cory Staley, Doug Hensel and Jordan James in contention for the crown. James would grab the lead of the feature on the opening circuit from his fourth starting position with Travis Hutton in pursuit and Hensel, who started ninth, worked his way into top five on lap five and three laps later powered into second right before the red flag waved as two different accidents sent two driver flipping. With a tight battle for positioning, it was four wide going into turn one and with a lot of contact, Jolene Voshel ended up upside down while in turn two, Dustin Bedlion ended up on his lid. Both drivers were ok. With the double file restart, Hensel swiped the lead away from James on the restart and the Wooster driver and his Bad Boyz Tree Service #18 would keep James at bay and collect his fifth win of the season and claim the championship. Hutton finished third as Ryan Carder grabbed fourth with Last Chance winner Billy Parsons,who started 16th, rounding out the top five. Hensel, Hutton and Voshel pocketed the heat wins.

It was also a Kirsch Properties 'Summer Series' race for the Mini Stocks and Swanger Sports 'Summer Series' race for the Super Stocks.

The next race at Wayne County Speedway will be Sunday, September 6th with the Pete Jacobs Memorial for the 410 Sprints with $13,000 going to the winner. The Steel Block Late Model Series and the Modifieds will also be on the racing card. Gates will open at 3 pm and racing at 7 pm.

Arenz charges to fourth 2020 MSA triumph at Beaver Dam Raceway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 29, 2020 – Third-year 360 Sprint Car driver Travis Arenz of Sheboygan continued his season-long hot streak in Midwest Sprint Car Association competition by notching his fourth A-main victory of the 2020 season Saturday, Aug. 29 at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis.

The 12th MSA event of the 2020 campaign drew a field of 31 competitors to the third-mile Beaver Dam Raceway facility where the Southeastern Wisconsin-based 360 Sprint Car division got its start in 1996.

Doug Wondra of Campbellsport led the opening lap of the 25-lap Jim Wipperfurth Memorial MSA A-main from the pole before 2011 MSA champ Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove, who started third, snagged the top spot in turn two on lap 2, while five-time MSA champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee, who started fourth, followed Schmidt into second.

On lap 3, the first of three red flags appeared when Justin Miller of Plymouth flipped in turn three during an incident that also involved Adam Miller of Plymouth and Chris Clayton of Waldo.

When the race resumed, Schmidt bolted out to a full-straightaway cushion over Davis on the ultra-slick racing surface. On lap 8, Travis Arenz worked his way into third from his 10th starting spot. Three laps later, the leaders began to work their way through lapped traffic, which allowed Davis and Arenz to close the gap on Schmidt.

Arenz worked underneath Davis on lap 13 before Davis brought out the second red flag of the race after drifting high in turn two and hitting the turn two wall before flipping. Davis was uninjured, but heavy damage to his car forced him to retire from the race.

On the restart, Schmidt again raced away from Arenz, who felt heavy pressure from sixth starter Tyler Tischendorf of Waupaca, who worked his way past Arenz into second before the third and final red flag appeared on lap 14 when Justin Erickson of Plymouth spun in turn four and was collected by Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum, who flipped.

Following the restart, Arenz used the high groove to sweep around Tischendorf into second on lap 15 and quickly reel in Schmidt along the high groove. On lap 20, Arenz pulled off a slide job in turn two to wrestle the top spot away from Schmidt.

Two laps later, three-time MSA champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh, who started 15th, worked past Schmidt into second. McMullen was able to trim the gap slightly in the final three laps, but Arenz was too strong as he held to secure his 11th career MSA A-main victory.

McMullen finished second, Schmidt placed third, Tischendorf finished fourth and eighth starter Jack Vanderboom of Dousman placed fifth.

MSA heat race victories went to Travis Arenz, Will Gerrits of Waupun, Brandon McMullen and Bill Taylor of Kewaskum.

2005 MSA champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett claimed the 15-lap MSA B Main and Jack Vanderboom was the fast qualifier in MSA group qualifying with a lap of 13.454 seconds.

Kristine Hartmann Pleasantville Realty served as the main sponsor of this year’s MSA Jim Wipperfurth Memorial Race.

The MSA will return to action on Friday, Sept. 4 at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis.

Philo powers to Attica 410 win; Weaver earns 5th 305 victory; Valenti again in trucks

ATTICA, Ohio – Travis Philo blasted from sixth to third on the opening lap of the 410 A-main Saturday, Aug. 29 at Attica Raceway Park, then hounded Cale Conley for several laps before driving into the lead on lap 18 and drove away to his sixth career victory at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speedplant.

“This whole year has kind of been crazy. I want to thank John Bores and Rex LeJeune and everyone at Attica and all the fans…it’s been a difficult year for all of us but we appreciate you for coming out here and supporting us so we can keep doing what we love,” said Philo beside his Control Design Solutions, Tire Slick, Integrity Auto Sales, Banshee Graphics, Shop Supply Services, Columbus Equipment, Bohmer Rentals, Classic Ink USA, Berryman Racing Shocks, Sprint Fun Photos, Smith Titanium, Kistler Engines, Kistler Racing Products backed 5T.

“Tonight was the only night I was pissed drawing a six for the redraw. I knew we were going to be good where ever we started. I knew we would come right through there…it came sooner than I thought. I can’t thank my guys enough…my dad, Jim Robey, Josh LaCombe..we have a really good car rolling now so hopefully this is good momentum for next week with the All Stars,” he added.

Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver took the lead on lap 8 and only a late race caution kept him from dominating the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints A-main. That yellow flag with just two laps to go didn’t phase the three time Attica track champion as he took his fifth win of the year at Attica and the 54th of his career in the division.

“It’s an ’09 car…it’s been around awhile. The tubes are different in the back. When I get it right this thing just drives forward. I have to thank Bob Hampshire…we have to have a motor to pull this thing and this is the third different motor this season…I’ve won with three different motors,” said Weaver beside his B&B Drain Services, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Seagate Sandblasting, Weaver Performance backed #1W.

After a lengthy delay following an opening lap crash that resulted in a driver being taken to the hospital complaining of neck pain, Shawn Valenti held off a late race charge from Jamie Miller to claim his second dirt truck feature win in a row. It was Valenti’s 20th career truck win at Attica.

“I looked up at the board and saw the 4M (Miller) was behind me and I wasn’t quite sure what to do on the restart and Jamie stuck his nose under me and made a race of it and made me get back on it. I want to thank A Plus Auto Center for putting up some extra cash, Roelle Fabrication, Scott’s Property Management, Craig Miller Trucking, Best Performance Motorsports, KS Sales & Service, Gressman Powersports, Dave Story Equipment and Speedways Bar and Grill for all their support,” said Valenti.

Cole Macedo and John Ivy brought the field to green for the 30-lap Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprint feature with Ivy gaining the advantage over Cale Conley, Philo and Macedo. After a lap was complete the steering broke on Macedo’s machine as he spun in turn three with Max Stambaugh also spinning.

On the restart Conley drove around Ivy for the lead as Philo also pressured Ivy for second, taking the runner-up spot on lap three. Conley and Philo raced side by side for several laps. When the leaders hit lapped traffic on lap 13 Conley got hung up and Philo raced to his inside and took the lead a hand full of laps later.

Philo began to pull away from Conley as Nate Dussel moved into third with Ivy and Stuart Brubaker giving chase. The second and final caution flew on lap 23 but Philo raced to a fantastic restart and pulled away the final seven circuits for the win over Conley, Dussel, Ivy and DJ Foos.

Larry Kingseed Jr. jumped into a commanding lead at the drop of the green for the 25 lap Fremont Fence 305 A-main over Matt Foos, Weaver, Kasey Ziebold, Kody Brewer, Jamie Miller and Justin Lusk. Weaver moved into second on lap three and began to close the gap on Kingseed.

Weaver drove under Kingseed to take the lead on lap 11 as they raced into heavy lapped traffic with Foos and Miller battling for third and Ziebold and Brewer battling for fifth. Kingseed brought out the caution on lap 13 but Weaver was just too strong on the restart and once again pulled away over Foos, Miller, Ziebold and Brewer.

The final caution with just two laps to go gave the field one last shot at Weaver but again he raced away on an excellent restart to take the win over Foos, Miller, a charging Mike Keegan and Ziebold.

Following a multi-truck crash at the beginning of the dirt truck A-main, Jamie Miller jumped into the early lead over Jeff Babcock, Valenti, Brandon Stuckey, Brad Stuckey, Keith Sorg and Dan Hennig. Miller, Babcock and Valenti pulled away and waged a terrific battle for the lead with Valenti taking the top spot on lap three.

Valenti pulled away as Miller, Babcock and Steve Sabo raced hard for the runner-up spot. A caution with five laps to go put Miller right on Valenti’s rear bumper and when the green flew Miller charged to Valenti’s inside. Another caution a lap later and Valenti moved to the bottom of the track on the restart and was able to pull away from Miller with Sabo, Babcock and Brad Stuckey rounding out the top five.

Attica Raceway Park will host the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Friday and Saturday, Sept. 4 and 5. On Friday, the All Stars will battle for $5,000 to win on Murphy Tractor/Core & Main/Stillwater Metals Night with the Dirt Nerds Podcast/Propane.com UMP Late Models battling for $3,000 to win. Saturday on All Pro Aluminum Heads/Core & Main Night, the All Stars go for $10,000 to win with the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints battling for $1,000 to win. The entire weekend is presented by Kistler Engines and Kistler Racing Products which is putting up a $1,000 each night if the All Star feature winner has a Kistler Engine under the hood.

Garrett Aiken Gains First Career POWRi WAR
Win at Tri-City Speedway

Belleville, IL. (08/28/2020) Making the only appearance of 2020 to Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois, the POWRi Lucas Oil Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League would not disappoint any in attendance on the pristine track. After twenty-five laps and countless breathtaking racing maneuvers, Garrett Aiken would stand victorious while notching his first career POWRi WAR feature win.

Early racing action would witness Joe B. Miller #97 set the fastest time in the hot lap sessions with a 16.071 lap time. Joe B. Miller would continue his streak of speed notching a heat race victory with Riley Kreisel #91 earning the top spot in his heat race as well. Paul Nienhiser #9 would gain the high point qualifying award, running from ninth to second place in his heat to earn a pole starting spot for the feature.

With High Point Qualifier Paul Nienhiser and a speedy Joe B. Miller making up the front row for the twenty-five-lap main event, competition would be fierce and all over the track with sometimes three and four wide battles for nearly every position. Nienhiser and Miller would battle back and forth for most of the race with neither driver giving up their preferred line of racing. Riley Kreisel would make his presence felt by trying to find a way around the top two lap after lap with Mitch Wissmiller #29 and Mario Clouser #6 all within striking distance as the laps started to dwindle.

Mid-Race caution flags would bunch the field back together at the halfway mark as Garrett Aiken #32 would fly to front. Using a low-to-high line to perfection Aiken would effortlessly pick off other frontrunners on his march to the top spot. Gaining the lead with less than ten laps left Aiken would not be stopped in his quest to his first-ever career POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League feature victory.

"After the caution half-way through the feature I knew the car was fast and had to pick my moment in one and two" Aiken would state in an incredibly happy victory lane. Garrett would go on to add, "It really came down to angling the corner just right, if you got to high you would scrub speed so I started to approaching at more of a diamond and the car was a rocket after that."

One-time leader Paul Nienhiser would finish in a close second place by less than half a second, with lap traffic proving to be tricky to navigate for the frontrunners. Joe B. Miller would round out the podium finishers by showing speed all night and remaining in the hunt for the front the entire event. Riley Kreisel continued to add to his championship season by placing a solid fourth as Mitch Wissmiller placed fifth and a tight battle up front.

Rain claims PDTR Russ Scheffler Tribute main events

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 27, 2020 – After dodging surrounding rain showers throughout the day and early evening, the third annual Plymouth Dirt Track Racing Russ Scheffler Tribute Night program began on a promising note with a season-high total of 101 cars checked into the pit area in four divisions, including a stellar field of 30 Late Models, on Thursday, Aug. 27 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

However, the rain finally hit the third-mile clay oval at the conclusion of the Late Model non-qualifiers race to wash out the remainder of the program, including all four A-main events on an evening honoring the late Russ Scheffler, who stands as the winningest driver in PDTR history with 92 overall race victories, including 45 Late Model A-main triumphs.

The event was considered a complete program as all heat races and two of the three scheduled B main races, as well as the Late Model non-qualifiers race were contested before the rain came.

Russ Scheffler Tribute Night Late Model heat race winners were Tony Peterson of Big Bend, Brett Swedberg of Shawano, Justin Reed of Camp Point, Ill. and Tom Naeyaert of Shawano.

Kristine Hartmann Pleasant View Realty 360 Sprint Car heat race winners were Doug Wondra of Lomira, Scott Conger of Eagle, Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee and Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh.

Klips N Tips Grand National heat race winners included Chad Espen of West Bend and Nick Schumacher of Eagle. Cellcom B Mod heat race winners were Jason Schilling of Greenfield, Will Garceau of Mishicot and Travis Schmidt of Waldo.

Jim Schmidt of Cleveland captured the 15-lap Late Model B main and Lance Fassbender of Burnett won the 15-lap 360 Sprint Car B main.

Greg Cantrell of DeKalb, Ill. won the 5-lap Late Model non-qualifiers race.

The 11th PDTR racing program of the 2020 season, which was sponsored by KSI Supply and Cupcake Wonders, drew a total of 101 cars, including 30 Late Models, 29 360 Sprint Cars, 17 Grand Nationals and 25 B Mods.

PDTR action is scheduled to resume on Friday, Aug. 28 with the Dirt Kings Late Model Tour returns for the Mueller Sales and Service 30 presented by Specht Electric and Communications. The evening also includes a full points program for the PDTR 360 Sprint Cars, as well as non-points programs for the Grand National and B Mod divisions.

Grandstand gates open at 4:30 p.m. with racing at 6:30 p.m.

On Saturday, Sept. 5, PDTR will host the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series, along with the PDTR 360 Sprint Cars.

Grandstand gates open at 4:30 p.m. with racing at 6 p.m.

Sportsman Sprints Thrill as Goetz Prevails

8/27/20

Alger, WA - Three different leaders and multiple lead changes punctuated a long but thrilling main event in the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints on round 11 of Skagit Speedway TV. As the dust settled, it was Chase Goetz rallying to the win with a late race pass.

Bill Rude held the early lead through a lot of the carnage that dominated the early portion of the main event, including an open red period for Cory Swatzina on lap five. Goetz had moved into second right before that red, and tried reeling in Rude with no avail before a lap 11 yellow. On that yellow, Rude exited the track with a flat tire, giving Goetz the lead. On the ensuing restart, Goetz had his hands full with Jesse Schlotfeldt, who had advanced from 12th to challenge for the top spot. On lap 15, Jesse shot by Goetz on the outside to grab the lead, and attempted to put some real estate between him and Chase. A caution at the conclusion of lap 22 bunched the field up for one more run to the checkered flag, and on the restart, Goetz made a monster move to the inside of Schlotfeldt in turn one and pulled even with Jesse at the exit of turn two. With big momentum on his side, Chase pulled a short slide on Jesse entering turn three in what ended up being the race winning pass, giving him a few car lengths advantage as they completed lap 23. Over the final two laps, Goetz kept Schlotfeldt at arms length to take his second straight win at Skagit Speedway, with Schlotfeldt and Brett McGhie rounding out the podium.

Alex Peck and Nick Evans battled for the win in the NW Focus MIdget A Main with Evans coming out on top in the end. Peck led the first 13 laps before Evans found a way past him in slower traffic. Peck would keep Nick close, but Evans made all the right moves the rest of the way to get his first Skagit Speedway win of the season. Peck grabbed his best Skagit Speedway finish of the year with second and Jared Peterson was third.

Cory Sweatman is on a roll in the Pacific NW, riding an eight race winning streak after winning in the Outlaw Tuner division on Thursday night. Sweatman took the lead from Howard Vos on lap eight and ran to his third win in a row at Skagit and eighth overall as he has a five race win streak at Grays Harbor Raceway. Vos held second with Jon Gunderson taking third.

Crockett, Campos, Coffman, J. Whisler, Clay, And R. Ashley Collect August 22nd CGS Wins
By Stephanie Deatherage

Cottage Grove, Oregon- For the fifth time of the 2020 season, Cottage Grove Speedway was back in action on Saturday, August 22nd. Six divisions were on the card including the IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Mods, Late Models, Street Stocks, IMCA Sport Compacts, and Senior Sprints. The Senior Sprints made their first-ever appearance and consisted of Sprint Car racers over the age of fifty.

In Senior Sprint action, Brian Crockett paced the field in the first three circuits. By lap four Shady Cove’s David Marble put his mount forth and into the lead. But Crockett, of Creswell, navigated his way past Marble to reobtain the lead.

Brian would stay out in front and would earn the inaugural Senior Sprint main event. It is the first time that the veteran racer has won in the state of Oregon and at Cottage Grove. It is also the one-hundred-eightieth victory of his decorated career. David Marble was second while the Ed and Monica Sim owned entry, driven by Cottage Grove’s Chris Rolfe, got third. The rest of the top five consisted of Springfield chauffeur Kevin Journey, in fourth, and fifth finishing Gene Ashley, from Jasper.

For the IMCA Modified division, restarts would be a premium. But Keizer’s John Campos would rise to the occasion. Campos took the lead on the opening start and tried his best to construct a large lead but had to deal with six cautions through the course of the feature.

Eston Whisler, from the coastal city of Otis, briefly scooted past Campos on lap nineteen. But John was able to blaze back Whisler to regain supremacy. John Campos led the rest of the distance to win his second race of the 2020 season at CGS. He is the first driver to become a repeat winner at “The Grove” and is tied for the most Modified victories in the state of Oregon this year.

Eston Whisler ended the race in second but unfortunately was disqualified. Springfield’s Jake Mayden, despite spinning to the start/finish line, was recorded in the runner-up spot while third went to Steven Sturdevant, also of Springfield. Aaron Sheelar, from Springfield, and Eugene veteran Paul Rea was fourth and fifth.

The IMCA Sport Mod feature witnessed a whopping nine stoppages. Despite all of the stop and go action it turned out to be an exciting race. Roseburg’s Jordan Henry paced the field on the opening lap but on a restart, he would be overtaken by Dustin Comer. Comer, of Springfield, was on a mission and showed a lot of speed but suffered mechanical issues on lap thirteen that put him out of action for the rest of the night.

Doug Coffman took over the honors as the race leader. The Roseburg racer had to fend off a couple of contenders but none the less maintained the top spot. Coffman went on to win the race to earn his third victory at three different racetracks in 2020. He now leads the state of Oregon for the most overall feature wins.

Eugene’s Hunter Bloom hit the wire second with Jordan Henry claiming third. Steven Sanders, of Brookings, posted a fourth-place result while fifth went to Springfield regular K.C. Scott, via the B Main. Winning the consolation feature earlier in the program was Daniel Ray, from Springfield.

The Late Model feature was a wild and wacky endeavor. Chad Groves, in the Jerry and Mandee Casey owned machine, led early. A couple of cautions took its toll on the car count, but Groves stayed out front. On lap eleven a change of the top position would be witnessed with Jimmy Whisler getting to the front. Despite heavy damage from an earlier incident the Otis racer held on the rest of the way to becoming the first Late Model repeat winner at CGS as he recorded his second win.

Chuck Christian, of Eugene, beat out Chad Groves for second while Groves settled for third. The rest of the top five consisted of Bellfountain driver Willie Sutton, in fourth, and Bruce Rayburn Jr., of Eagle Point, in fifth.

In Street Stocks, four leaders change occurred throughout the main. Marc Farrar, of Sherwood, led lap one while the second circuit was trailblazed by Creswell’s Garrett Barth. Barth was overtaken on lap three by double-duty driver Jake Mayden. Mayden’s role as the point man was short-lived as Barth reclaimed the honors.

However, lap twelve witnessed the final change of first place when Junction City’s Kolby Clay made his way past Garrett Barth. Clay, racing for car owner Adam Applebee, kept the car out in front of the rest of the field to become the fifth different winner in as many races at Cottage Grove. Garrett Barth got second while third place was Cottage Grove driver Eric Freeman. Jake Mayden placed fourth with fifth going to Anthony Prather, of Keizer.

Finally, in the IMCA Sport Compacts, Ricky Ashley showed dominance. Barry Cannon, of Dexter, beat the field to the line on the opening start while lap two was led by Mark Milligan, of Eugene. Milligan stayed in the front until the sixth trip past the flag stand. That is when Ricky Ashley worked his way into the top place position.

Ashley, of Thurston and in the Randy Kuhl entry, checked out from the rest of the pack. Ricky went on to win his second race in the class and became the first repeat winner of the year. Eugene’s Brad Moffett scored a second-place finish over third-place Mark Milligan. Barry Cannon was fourth while fifth went to Cottage Grove newcomer Jeremy DeGrout.

Cottage Grove Speedway returns to racing on Saturday, August 29th for another round of exciting action. Classes in action include Limited Sprints, Wingless Sprints, Northwest Focus Midget Series, IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Mods, and IMCA Sport Compacts.

Sweigart rides high for Port win

“Nitro Nick” Sweigart has made some heroic charges from the back of the field to good finishes this season, but the Myerstown racer got a good starting position draw Saturday and made the most of it, wiring the field for his second PA Sprint Series feature win of the season at Port Royal Speedway.

After finishing second in his heat race, Sweigart drew the pole position for the 20-lap IMCA/RaceSaver sprint feature, outdueled outside front row starter Kirsten Hess for the lead and held off charges from Doug Dodson and Garrett Bard to park the A.H. Moyer/Buckwalter Trucking/Gater Truck Sales RacerX #8 in victory lane.

Dodson made his most determined challenge in the race’s only restart, on a lap four following a caution for Branstin Shue and Dustin Young, both of who scraped the outside wall. Dodson went for an inside pass but couldn’t pull it off. Sweigart, Dodson and Bard then pulled away from the field, with all three cars running an extreme high line. With the race remaining green the rest of the way, that battle continued in traffic, but Sweigart handled the lapped cars and never allowed another serious challenge.

On lap 14, Bard slipped past Dodson for second, and three laps later, Dave Grube moved into the third spot, but Sweigart was in control the rest of the way.

The win was Sweigart’s third overall in an up-and-down season that has seen him finish in the top five in six of his 11 starts and outside the top ten in the remaining five.

He and Bard are the only PASS winners at the Port this year (three for Bard, two for Sweigart), and with this being the final regular-season points race (three events were canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions), the finish also set the field for the invitational race that will support the World of Outlaws event on October 10, with the top 26 in Port Royal points eligible to run.

Heat races for the 42 RaceSaver sprint cars on hand were won by Bard, Melair, Jimmy White and Dodson, who started tenth (last) in his heat. The 22-car B-Main was won by Dustin Smith, with the final qualifying spot going to rookie Dustin Young, who came from 20th starting spot to finish sixth.

Hard Charger was Landon Price, advancing from 17th starting position to eighth at the finish. Even on a slick track, there was plenty of other passing: Jaremi Hanson advanced eight spot during the feature, and Larry McVay and Erin Statler each advanced seven. The award was especially lucrative to Price, coming with both a right rear tire from Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic and $100 from Port Royal’s PASS sponsor, Penns Valley Meat Market.

PASS is at BAPS Motor Speedway next Saturday (August 29) for an event co-sanctioned by the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series (MASS). The special night also will include a 360/358 sprint challenge featuring the United Racing Club 360 sprints, the Super Sportsman cars and limited stocks. PASS will run a full program plus a make-up feature from August 1.

Aaron Reutzel returns to victory at Plymouth Speedway

Reutzel finished just ahead of Tony Stewart in the ASCoC feature event

By Greg Hildebrand

PLYMOUTH—Aaron Reutzel knew the way to victory lane Saturday night at Plymouth Speedway. The Clute Texas native has made winning at the “Playground of Power” something of a tradition with his third victory in his three appearances at the track. “This track really suits me,” said Reutzel after the victory.

The Ollie’s Bargain Center All Star Circuit of Champions put on an exciting 35 lap feature in front of a great turnout of racing fans. Indiana’s Tony Stewart made his second start of the weekend returning to racing action and attracted a larger crowd than the World of Outlaw stars that stopped earlier in the season.

Stewart would qualify third behind Reutzel and Australian Ian Madsen, finished second in his heat, a fifth in the dash set his starting position for the feature.

Hunter Scherenberg started on the front row with Reutzel on his outside for the feature. Scherenberg would grab the early lead, trade slide jobs with Reutzel for the first four laps before Reutzel would take command on the top of the track and lead the rest of the way. Stewart would charge to second and pressure Reutzel but wouldn’t be able to get past.

While Saturday’s win was Reutzel’s first in fourteen races he currently leads the series points by 84 over California’s Cory Eliason with Angola Indiana native Zeb Wise in third.

Two points battles were decided Saturday with Austen Hubbard squeaking out a one point season championship in the Thunder Stock division and Josh Lank finishing out the season with a 94 point margin of victory.

Both of these classes had their season championship features rained out last week so they were added to the racing action and rewarded with an extra non-points feature.

Hubbard was leading the feature when it was called for rain so he restarted in the lead and looked to make the points and easy calculation with Lee Hall behind him on the track and in the points. Wally Kerst would make things interesting as he got in the lead and Hubbard was now holding on to keep the championship. Lee would get past Hubbard for second but the third place finish was just enough for Hubbard to win the season.

James Headley would run away with both Mini Stock features and Josh Lank would finish third in the make up feature, fourth in the bonus feature and sealed the season championship with 360 points.

The speedway will be quiet for a couple weekends until the NRA 360 winged sprints show on Saturday, Sept. 12.

Sharing the track with the sprint cars will be the Super Streets and Thunder Stocks. Pit passes will be $35, General Admission for adults is $25, kids 6-12 $5 and race fans 5 and under are FREE. Gates open at 4:30 p.m., Hot Laps start at 5:30 p.m. with racing getting underway at 6:30 p.m.

Bradley Terrell On Top at 9th Annual Soares Classic with Hunt Series

(PETERSEN MEDIA-Petaluma, CA)- Opening night Hunt Series feature event winner, Bradley Terrell became the first repeat winner of 2020 as he topped the 9th Annual Soares Classic on Saturday night at Petaluma Speedway.

Originally slated to be the annual 50-lap affair, officials made the decision to cut the feature to 30-laps due to poor air quality and unseasonably hot weather in the area.

When the feature went green it was pole sitter, Terry Schank, jumping out to the early lead as he beat fellow front row starter off the exit of turn two and gave himself some early breathing room.

As Streeter settled into second, Matt Stewart and Nick Robfogel with battle for the third position with Robfogel holding the spot early in the feature event.

With Schank out front, Robfogel would move into second and would actually contend for the race lead, as deep in the field Bradley Terrell began to surge through the Top-10.

Terrell would get to the highside of the speedway and would begin making moves as he was able to get by Streeter and Day Day Lindt in one corner to move into fourth as he chased after Stewart and Robfogel who ran in front of him.

As second running Robfogel got into Schank’s rear end, Stewart would get into the back of Robfogel and it would let Terrell pull into second as it would turn into a two-horse race up front.

With the yellow flying for Robfogel and Stewart as they were hooked together, the ensuing restart saw Terrell continue to ride the high side and he would scoot around Schank in turns one and two to take over the race lead.

Out front, Terrell would get through traffic well as he would pull away from Schank and keep him at bay the rest of the race.

With Terrell out front and picking up the win, Daniel Whitely would get by Schank late while in traffic to finish second, as Schank took the final spot on the podium.

DJ Johnson would race to a fourth-place finish as Day-Day Lindt rounded out the Top-5.

A total of 25 cars checked in for the Soares Classic, and it was Matt Stewart kicking the night off with the Ashley Van Den Berg Home Loans fast time award.

Robfogel would win Benic Enterprises Heat No. 1, Shayna Ensign won Brown and Miller Heat Race No. 2, Day-Day Lindt took top honors in King Racing Products Heat No. 3, and Terrell won Santomaruo Heat Race No. 4.

Angelique Bell finished 15th and claimed the BR Motorsports P15 award, and Dylan Bloomfield was the Hard Charger.

Flint Flies To CRSA Victory At Penn Can, Dedicates Win To Pete Richardson

Press Release – August 23rd, 2020 – Turn 5 Media photo

(SUSQUEHANNA, PA) – Penn Can Speedway has been awful good to Josh Flint in his Super Gen Products CRSA Sprints career. His last CRSA win was at “The Can” on October 15, 2016, with the quarter-mile track making up fifty percent of his tour wins. During CRSA’s July visit o Penn Can, Flint picked off seven cars to win the Eagle Enterprise, LLC Hard Charger Award.

Fast forward to a flawless night on Friday, the tour win column now shows three and the percentage of wins at Gary Folk’s Penn Can Speedway went up to sixty-six percent.

The only thing that Flint missed out on Friday night was a heat race win. The driver out of Cherry Valley, NY started fifth in his heat and made the Top 12 redraw by finishing third. With the stars aligning in the Susquehanna, PA skies- Flint drew the pole for the 25-lap A-Main.

Flint was intent on leaving absolutely no doubt, leading the opening three laps and putting a good distance on Dana Wagner’s No. 25w who advanced from the third starting position to second on the start. Lap 3 would see the event slowed to a halt with the red flag being displayed.

Thomas Radivoy was working hard to recover from drawing the tenth starting position and was working the outside cushion in Turn 3 with brute force. As he approached Turn 4 the right rear tire caught the cushion wrong and turned his Country Service Center No. 1Q hard to the right toward the track’s embankment. With Radivoy still hard on the gas, his Triple X chassis went airborne over the embankment causing severe damage, ending his night although Radivoy would be ok.

Once back under the green, Flint kept a safe distance in front of Wagner as two additional yellow flags slowed the field. Behind the battle for the race lead, Alysha Bay and Ethan Gray were dicing it up for the final spot on the podium.

Bay found traction down along the inside concrete wall, while the Rookie sensation out of Manchester, NY was trying to figure out how he could ride the cushion to sweep by off Turn 4. Gray would eventually get the fast line figured out and got by one of his mentors to take over third.

Sydney Prince was a part of that battle as well in her first start with CRSA this season. Prince won her heat race walking away and would cross the line at the checkered flag inside the Top 5. Unfortunately, Prince bypassed the scales post-race, resulting in a disqualification per CRSA rules.

Flint kept Wagner at arm’s reach to secure his third CRSA victory at the checkered flag. Gray held on for his career best CRSA finish with an impressive podium effort. Bay and Trevor Years filled out the top five- a much needed highlight for Years after having transmission troubles and a trailer flat tire on the way to the track.

“I was on the phone with Jason Barney tonight a lot, he’s helped me so much on this car since we switched over to X1,” reflected Flint in Victory Lane. But the emotion of the moment was quite evident.

“This win is for Pete Richardson. We got to race with him quite a bit in Patriots and he was just a great guy. This one is for him.”

Flint picked up an extra $100 courtesy of the Ruggles Racing crew who put the winner bonus up in Richardson’s memory.

For Dana Wagner, there were a lot of positives to take away even after coming up one spot short. Last time at Penn Can, Wagner went home with a tenth place finish and a damaged racecar.

“I’m pretty happy with second, we came home in one piece and the better guy won tonight. Tonight was way better than last time.”

Ethan Gray, his crew and his followers back home in New York were just ecstatic.

“Turn 3 and 4 seems to always bug me a little bit (here at Penn Can) but I got it figured out. This is awesome!”

Next on the schedule for the Super Gen Products CRSA 305 Sprints is a return trip to Paul Cole’s Land of Legends Raceway for a $1,000-to-win event courtesy of Mike Emhof Motorsports in Round 4 of the 2020 series. There will also be rolling top 5 cash bonuses on the line. The tentatively scheduled finale at Afton Motorsports Park is slated for October 9. Stay tuned for more information on this event.

On a beautiful late summer Saturday night at Michaels Mercer Raceway Park the track, the fans, the drivers and the crews all paid tribute to the late Brandon Hawkins, a 305 sprint car racer who tragically lost his life at the young age of 26 years old, with the first annual “Mav classic” named for Brandon’s young son Maverick. The event was a 27 lap affair that paid $2727 to the winner and had an $11,500 purse with $27 per lap plus other contingencies. It was the highest paying 305 sprint car race in the history of the western pa area.

30 305 sprints turned out to honor the Hawkins family as drivers came as far as New York, southern Ohio, and Central Pa to compete at the 3/8 mile bent egg oval. Jake Gomola, last years track champion was the driver to beat all night as he won his heat race ,won the $400 dash and started on the pole of the 27 lap feature. Gomola bolted immediately out into the lead and was the man to beat as he open up a five second lead at one point on second place and as he was coming down for the checkered flag out of turn number 4 he encountered a lapped car and got tangled up with the car resulting in him not being able to restart the event for the final lap. Greg Dobrosky, who has won six times at the Mercer speed plant inherited the lead for the final lap and went on to win the event over 10 time winner Jim Morris; Jeremy Kornbau, and John Paytner.

Kyle Colwell who was racing the Brandon Hawkins car started last in the Mav challenge where with Colwell starting last in 27th position every car that he would pass for position would donate $50 back to the Hawkins family. Colwell ended up finishing 5th so by passing 22 cars from the 27th starting position $1,100 would go back to the Hawkins family and Colwell would also receive the $100 hard charger award. Cameron Hague earned the hard luck award as he qualified for the A main through the Consi but blew his motor as the checkered fell. John Paynter earned the farthest tow award for coming from Bloomington, Indiana. Over $4,000 was raised at Mercer for Brandon’s son Maverick.

In the big block modifieds Rex king Sr the 1995 and 2019 Track Champion took off from the pole position to never be challenged in the 25 lap event As he held off his son Rex King Jr who won last week, Dave Murdick would be third, JR McGinley fourth and Kyle Fink 5th.

Brian Schaffer, last year’s FASTRAK modified track Champion took command of the feature event from the pole position and held off Chas Wolbert who is one of the top winning limited modified drivers in the area, 9 time winner Garrett Krummert would finish 3rd, Brandon Ritchey 4th and David Kalb 5th.

In the mini stock finale longtime veteran Will Aley won his 2nd career feature in the class holding of a challenging DJ McCrae and last weeks winner Phil King. McCrae would later be found to have an illegal tire which would send him to the last position. King would move up to 2nd, Leonard Baker Jr 3rd, Carl Ealy 4th and Randy Ealy 5th. Kyle Donnelly violently flipped his 24D mid race but was uninjured.

Bakker and Jody Rosenboom rounded out the podium. Heat races went to Rosenboom, Henderson and Justin Jacobsma.

PETERSON DOMINATES OVSCA AT WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY; CASKEY & AMICK COLLECT 2nd WINS; LONEY LOCKS UP MODIFIED MAIN; HENSEL GRABS 4th CHECKERED FLAG

Orrville, Ohio

August 22, 2020

By Mike Swanger

Over 120 cars in 5 class' of cars overflowed the pits of Wayne County Speedway Saturday night on White's Ford and Serpentini Chevrolet night as the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association made their third appearance of the season with Rawson's Ricky Peterson going flag to flag for his first win. Driving the Fornes Auto & Truck Service, Kears Speedshop and Stan Courtad owned #9x, Peterson out raced fellow front row starter Broc Martin to turn one and would stay out front all 25 laps. Martin, the fast qualifier, would stay a few car lengths behind Peterson until lap 10 when Martin would tag the turn two guardrail and suffer a flat tire to end his chance of winning his second OVSCA feature at WCS. This would put R J Jacobs in second with Hunter Lynch and Dean Jacobs following and as the green flag waved, Dean Jacobs powered past Lynch for third and from that point on, the two Jacobs' would put on a tight race for second as Dean would try everything he could to get by R J. As they dueled for second, Peterson would extend his lead. With the laps dwindling down Dean Jacobs could slip past R J Jacobs in turn one and two but R J would get back past Dean in three and four. Behind them Lynch and Cory Crabtree were in a battle for fourth place. With checkered flag waving, Peterson won by more than a half a straightaway as R J Jacobs nipped Dean Jacobs at the line for second with Lynch taking fourth over Crabtree. Lynch, Dean Jacobs and Crabtree collected the heat wins as Jason Dolick topped the last chance race.

Orrville's Mitch Caskey would also start on the outside front row of the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Model feature and he would beat Justin Chance into turn one for the lead and would never give it up for his second win of the season. Chance would hound the Dan Weaver Trucking, Millersburg Tire and A & K Welding #18 of Caskey for the ten circuits when Chance would hit the guardrail in turn two, get on top of it and then roll back on to the track upside down to bring out the red flag and end his race. As the race resumed, Caskey would pull away with Brad Malcuit in second followed by J R Gentry with Todd Brennan, Larry Bellman and Jerry Bowersock racing for fourth. Malcuit would hold off Gentry and in the closing laps, Gentry tapped the wall in turn two and would hang on to take third as Malcuit finished a season best second. Brennan would win the three car race for fourth over Bellman, the Accu Force Shocks/Kar Connection Hard Charger, and Bowersock. Heat winners were Caskey and Brennan with Drown the fast qualifier.

The Modifieds were back in action once again as Kyle Moore would also start on the outside front row with Travis Dixon on the pole with Moore popping into the top spot at the drop of the green flag but Dixon would stay right with Moore, who was seeking his 6th straight win at "Orrville's Historic Oval" and had a bounty on him if any one could beat him while he was still running at the finish. With the two leaders going at it early on Jess Hartman, Kevin Morehouse and Jesse Wisecarver was going back and forth for third and Nathan Loney joining in. After caution flags on laps nine and ten and with the double file restarts, Loney would motor past Hartman, Morehouse and Wisecarver into third and take second from Dixon on the next circuit and put the pressure on Moore for the lead. Moore would hold off Loney until lap 15 when Moore would slow coming out of turn two and stop in turn four with a broken front end. Loney, of Danville would inherit the lead and hold of Dixon to the finish line and park the Tru Form Racing Products, GDN Welding and Rich's Body Shop #10 in victory lane for the first time. Dixon would take home second place with Hartman, Wisecarver and Morehouse filling out the top five. Dixon, Moore and Loney claimed the heat races while Bruce Miller won the last chance race. Pete Caplinger set the fast time in qualifying.

Tyler Wiles used the pole position of the McKenzie Concrete Super Stock feature and would set the pace for the opening ten laps as it was a wild scramble for positiong behind him. Don Baney would give up second place on lap four to Chase Alexander who would pressure Wiles for the lead as John Wilson and Mansfield's Michael Amick would join Baney for third place. Amick would work his way to third on lap seven and with Wiles leading, Amick and Alexander would bump together on lap nine in turn two and that would slow Alexander down and bring out the yellow flag. On the double file restart, Amick and his Smith Fabrication, United Concrete and Met's Machine Shop #18d would out hustle Wiles going into turn one for the lead and never look back for his second win of the season at WCS. Wiles would end up second as Wilson held off Doug Drown, who moved into fourth on the last caution with Alexander coming back to take fifth from Baney with two laps to go. Amick and Drown posted the heat wins as fast qualifier was Brandon Morrow.

Pole sitter Anthony Collins set the pace for the opening three circuits of the JoyRide Transport Mini Stock main and then it was Wooster's Doug Hensel taking over aboard the Bad Boyz Tree Service #18 and go then leading the rest of the way for his fourth victory of the season. Johnny Bruce Sr. would get by Collins for second on lap seven and finish a season best second. With two laps to go, Dustin Bedlion moved past Collins for third and on the last lap, Bobby Searls took fourth from Collins. Winning the heat races were Cory Staley, who had to change cars and run the last chance race that he won, Hensel, Collins and Bedlion.

Next Saturday night, August 29 at Wayne County Speedway will be Season Championships for the Pine Tree Towing & Recovery Sprints, the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Models, the McKenzie Concrete Super Stocks and the JoyRide Transport Mini Stocks and it will be the 'Summer Series' for both the Super Stocks and Mini Stock.

Benson, Wille, Ebert, Kinderknecht, and Ryun Capture Central Missouri Speedway Features!

Central Missouri Speedway August 22, 2020

(Warrensburg, Missouri) The season is nearing the end at Central Missouri Speedway (CMS) as the track begins a consecutive run of special events over the next several weeks through the final event of the year at the inaugural B-Mod Blowout.

The POWRi War Sprint League made their way to CMS for their first-ever appearance as 21 drivers signed in for the non-winged sprint racing. Joining the sprints were 12 A-Mods, 15 B-Mods, 17 Mod-Lites, and 16 Pure Stocks for a total of 81 cars.

The fans on hand took in 11 preliminary heat races and five main events. Championship track points were on the line for A-Mods, B-Mods, Mod-Lites, and Pure Stocks while the POWRi sprints competed for their series points. Prior to the night beginning CMS officials announced that the Pure Stock $500-to-win special event was re-added to the schedule to take place on Friday, September 25th during night one of the B-Mod Blowout.

Pure Stocks Recap, Heat Races: D.J. Barnes moved from fifth to the checkers to claim the opening Pure Stock heat with Scott Pullen second. Jason Ryun cruised to the heat two win as Jonathan Evans came away in second. Feature: D.J. Barnes and Jason Ryun earned the front row starting honors for the 15-lap Pure Stock main event as Barnes grabbed the early lead with Ryun in tow. Yellow flew early as Barnes led the charge through lap six. As the leaders came around at lap seven, it was Ryun who took command dropping Barnes to second. Evans was on the move once again as he took over second from Barnes at lap nine. James Mirts also moved forward into third by lap 11 with Spencer Reiff making his way to fourth as Barnes slid to fifth. In the waning laps, Ryun kept a solid distance between himself and Evans and ultimately went on to collect his third victory of the season. Evans was stout in second with Mirts third, Reiff fourth and Barnes fifth.

Mod-Lites Recap, Heat Races: David Raffurty raced his way to the opening Mod-Lite heat race with Garrett Stonum in second. Salina, Kansas driver Justin Kinderknecht made a rare CMS appearance in his Mod-Lite and started off with the heat two victory with Ed Griggs second. Feature: David Raffurty and Kinderknecht took pole honors to start the feature for the Mod-Lites. Raffurty and Kinderknecht were virtually even coming to the line for lap one as Raffurty was scored the leader. When they came by a second time, it was Kinderknecht who took the top spot. A yellow flag flew early as Dillon Raffurty nearly spun with Donnie Dannar unfortunately getting the worst end of the incident as he was unable to continue on after contact with Raffurty, who experienced a flat left front but was able to safely continue. Kinderknecht continued his lead up front building on the distance with each green flag lap. After a long green-flag run, father and son, David and Dillonn Raffurty waged a classic battle for second right to the finish as Kinderknecht sailed to his first CMS win of the year. David Raffurty edged his son Dillon for second, Ed Griggs ran a strong fourth the entire distance with Garrett Stonum fifth.

B-Mods Recap, Heat Races: Jacob Ebert ran a smooth race to take the opening eight-lap B-Mod heat with Friday night Lakeside Speedway winner Patrick Royalty in second. Chad Status fought hard for the heat two victory narrowly edging Jeremy Lile. Feature: After a quick restart, Jacob Ebert established himself at the front of the field with Chad Status and Patrick Royalty inside the top three. Yellow flew over the field early on two occasions, but after that, there was a long stretch of green-flag racing. Ebert maintained a comfortable lead while Status and Royalty battled for the runner-up spot. By the halfway marker, Royalty moved to second, but Ebert built up a nearly full straightaway advantage by late in the race. Not even a late-race caution could keep Ebert from victory lane on this night as the multiple-time B-Mod champion captured his first win of the season as he continues to fight for the season championship. It was Ebert’s 46th career CMS win. Royalty finished second in front of a stellar run by Sturgis Streeter up to third. Jeremy Lile was fourth with Status rounding out the top five.

POWRi War Sprints Recap, Heat Races: Wesley Smith of Nixa, Missouri started off the sprint heats with a victory over Anthony Nicholson. Tom Curran of Kansas City motored to victory in heat two over Kyle Lewis while Quinton Benson led the way in heat three ahead of Jack Wagner. Feature: Wesley Smith and Quinton Benson began the 25-lap sprint main event from row one on a slick and fast track with Smith out to an early lead. By lap nine, Smith led Riley Kreisel and Benson inside the top three. The racing was fantastic inside the entire top five for several laps and by lap 15, Smith still led but Benson moved to second over Kreisel. The race completely changed dynamics two laps later when Kreisel’s night came to a halt on the front stretch after climbing the wall, which ended in two flat tires to end his bid for the win. On the restart, Smith led Benson, Tom Curran, Anthony Nicholson, and Jack Wagner. One more caution flew in the race with Smith still leading Benson and Curran. Over the final laps, the leaders masterfully made their way through lapped cars but in the end, Benson of Sweet Springs emerged as the victor with Smith second, Curran third, Anthony Nicholson fourth, and Wagner fifth.

A-Mods Recap, Heat Races: A-Mods finished off the heat race action with a pair of eight-lap events with Terry Schultz besting Dean Wille in heat one while Gunner Martin outran Chad Lyle for the heat two win. Feature: In what may go down as the feature of the year at CMS, the A-Mods, although light on cars on this night, did not disappoint when it came to the racing. With the track super slicked over and racy from top to bottom, Chad Lyle and Terry Schultz led the charge at the drop of the green flag with Schultz bolting out to an early race lead. The lead duo stayed incredibly close for nearly the entire race duration as Schultz took the high road and Lyle took the low road. Tim Karrick looked strong in his return to action as he ran solidly inside the top five. As Schultz held a narrow lead, Wille began to move in on Lyle for second and by lap 15 took the position with a low-side move, then setting his sights on Schultz up front. Lapped traffic came into play by lap 17 as Schultz did all he could to keep Wille behind him. Schultz, Wille, and Lyle ran close to the end as Wille moved to the front by lap 23 but Schultz was not done yet and held his own on the high side. Coming to the white flag the leaders were side-by-side all the way until the end as Schultz’s bid for the win was slowed by a lapped car off turn four with Wille claiming the victory from his fourth starting position in a strong run to the front as he placed his #68 where it needed to be at the right time. Schultz was second followed by a strong return to racing run to third by Karrick, a solid run to fourth for Kevin Blackburn, as Lyle slipped to fifth. Prior to the start of the race, promoter Earl Walls told the drivers the track was super slick after the sprint race but that it was still a raceable track and if they ran without a yellow, “he would buy them two beers.” On this night, the promoter cracked open the beer at the pay window as the race was ran without a caution!

Next up, August 29, special event with the Third Annual Street Stock Showdown, featuring $2,000-to-win Street Stocks in a 25-lap main event.

Ben Schmidt, Justin Schmidt, Stolp, Wieland notch PDTR A-main triumphs

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 22, 2020 – The 10th Plymouth Dirt Track Racing program of the 2020 season featured a little bit of everything on Saturday, Aug. 22 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis, including a newly crowned three-time repeat Late Model champion, a first-time B Mod A-main winner, a photo finish in the Grand National main event and the first A-main victory of the year for a former Sprint Car champion plagued by bad luck for much of the 2020 season.

In the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasant View Realty 360 Sprint Car A main, 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove got his incident-plagued 2020 season back on track by notching his first A-main victory of the 2020 season. Justin Schmidt of Cleveland tallied his third 25-lap A-main victory of the season to clinch his third straight PDTR Gasroots Project Late Model title by a slim two-point margin over Turk Letizia of Waukesha. PDTR Klips N Tips Grand National point leader Aaron Stolp of Milwaukee pulled off a last lap pass to post his third 25-lap A-main win of the season by just .03 seconds. Brian Wieland of Sheboygan Falls collected his first career PDTR Cellcom B Mod A-main victory in the 25-lap A main.

In the 25-lap 360 Sprint Car A main, Ben Schmidt vaulted into the lead in the first turn of the opening lap from the pole position as outside front row starter Kevin Karnitz of West Bend settled into second.

By lap 4, Schmidt had opened up a full straightaway cushion over Karnitz on the slick and smooth track surface. Three laps later, Schmidt began to work his way through heavy lapped traffic, which allowed Karnitz to close the gap.

On lap 13, the first of two caution flags appeared when Waupun’s Tim Haddy spun in turn two. Schmidt again bolted out to a commanding lead on the restart utilizing the preferred outside groove. By lap 21, Schmidt had again built up a full-straightaway lead as point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan, who started 12th, and 2017 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh, who started seventh, traded slide jobs for fifth on lap 22.

The second and final caution appeared on lap 24 when Anthony Knierim of Franksville spun in turn four to set up a single-file green, white, checkered flag finish. On the restart, Schmidt again charged away from Karnitz, while Arenz made a daring move to sweep past two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee, who started fifth, and Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum, who started fourth, to move from fifth to third on the final lap.

Schmidt, who suffered a series of motor failures and a hard crash at Beaver Dam Raceway early in the season, pulled away to secure his 10th career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory and 26th career Midwest Sprint Car Association main event triumph.

Karnitz finished second, Arenz placed third, Wenninger was fourth and Davis rounded out the top five.

The 25-lap PDTR points season-ending A-main got off to a rough start when rookie Justin Green of Sheboygan Falls, who started second, spun in turn two on the opening lap to bring out the first of two caution flags.

Following a complete restart, third starter Joe Bongiorno of Milwaukee grabbed the lead in turn one, while fifth starter Charlie Schmidt of Oostburg slipped into second. On lap 4, Schmidt ducked under Bongiorno to take over the top spot in turn three.

One lap later, Schmidt spun into the infield in turn two, which gave the lead back to Bongiorno. On lap 6, the battle for the lead really heated up when 2016 PDTR Late Model champion Tim Buhler of Greenbush, who started seventh, fourth starter Justin Ritchie of New London and Justin Schmidt, who started eighth, bolted in to challenge Bongiorno for the top spot.

Using the high groove, Justin Schmidt emerged from a wild four-wide duel to take over the top spot in turn four on lap 6 with Ritchie moving into second. Four laps later, the second and final caution flag appeared on lap 10 when 2008 PDTR Late Model champ Billy Rezutek of Big Bend spun in turn two.

On the restart, Schmidt pulled away from Ritchie while ninth starter Turk Letizia of Waukesha, who came into the race with a four-point lead over Schmidt in the chase for the PDTR Late Model title, moved past four-time PDTR Late Model champion Brad Mueller of Random Lake, who started 10th, to take fourth on lap 12.

Schmidt cruised over the final 10 laps to secure his 13th career PDTR Late Model A-main victory and wrap up his third consecutive track title by two points over Letizia. Ritchie placed second, Buhler was third, Letizia placed fourth and Mueller rounded out the top five.

Two-time PDTR Grand National champion Don Sorce Jr. of West Allis took the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap Grand National A main from the pole with second starter Jonathan Otte of Cedar Grove seizing second.

The first of three caution flags appeared on lap 5 when Derek Kaat of Plymouth stopped in turn three. On the restart, Sorce Jr. pulled away, while third starter Dick Hed of Plymouth and fourth starter Luke Scholten of Oostburg dueled side by side for second before Scholten assumed the runner-up spot on lap 7.

The second caution appeared on lap 8 when Dylan Struve of Plymouth spun in turn two. Following the restart, Aaron Stolp charged in from his seventh starting spot to move into fourth on lap 10 along the cushion. Three laps later Stolp worked around Hed to take third and three laps later, he rode the high groove past Scholten for second.

The third and final caution was displayed on lap 18 when Josh Pierce of Fredonia spun in turn two. On the restart, Stolp worked the high groove to perfection to pressure Sorce Jr. for the top spot. The high-riding Stolp pulled even with the low-riding Sorce Jr. on lap 20 and the two dueled side by side over the final five laps to set up a thrilling finish.

On the final lap, Stolp pounded the cushion and used a huge run off of turn four to nip Sorce. Jr. at the finish line by just .03 seconds en route to his third career PDTR Grand National A-main victory. Sorce. Jr. had to settle for second, Scholten placed third, fifth starter Steven Weber of Plymouth finished fourth and defending PDTR Grand National champ Tyler Kulow of Plymouth placed fifth after starting ninth.

After an incident involving Barry Maas of Cascade, Spencer Long of Sheboygan Falls, Will Garceau of Mishicot and Conrad Kaufert of Random Lake on the initial start, polesitter Brian Wieland grabbed the lead on the drop of the green flag with outside front row starter Steve Lorier of Sheboygan sliding into second.

On lap 2, fourth starter Jesse Cullen of Chilton moved in second while 10th starter Jason Schilling of Greenfield rode the high groove into fourth on lap 3 before moving into third on lap 4.

By lap 9, Wieland had built up a half-straightaway cushion at the front of the field. Two laps later, the second caution appeared on lap 11 when Rory Welch of Grafton spun against the frontstrech wall.

On the restart, Will Garceau and Jonathan Hitsman of Plymouth spun in turn two. Lorier battled back to take second lap 12, while Waldo’s Travis Schmidt, who started sixth, worked the high line into third on the following lap before taking second from Lorier on lap 13.

On lap 19, rookie Trevor Frank of Sheboygan, who started third, flexed his muscle to work underneath Schmidt into second. Five laps later, defending PDTR B Mod champ and current point leader Tim Warner of Fond du Lac moved up from his 12th starting spot to take third with a nifty move in turn four.

Wieland remained smooth at the front of the field in the final circuits on the way to his first career PDTR B Mod victory in flag-to-flag fashion. Frank recorded a career-best second-place finish, Warner placed third, Schmidt wound up fourth and Jerry Duggan of Manitowoc worked his way up from his ninth starting spot to take fifth.

Lance Fassbender of Burnett won the 15-lap 360 Sprint Car B main.

The 10th PDTR racing program of the 2020 season, which was sponsored by the city of Sheboygan Falls Fire Department, drew a total of 82 cars, including 28 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars, 15 Late Models, 15 Grand Nationals and 24 B Mods.

Josh Schneiderman Rules Sprint Invaders at 34 Raceway!

(Bill W) West Burlington, IA, August 22, 2020 – Josh Schneiderman’s teaming with the Jimmy Davies Racing #99 team proved to be unbeatable on Saturday night at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa. Schneiderman was dominant from drop of the feature green flag, claiming his fourth Sprint Invaders win at 34 Raceway and his seventh overall with the series.

While Schneiderman shot out from his starting position outside row one, Colton Fisher gave chase, and was joined by eighth starter, Paul Nienhiser. Schneiderman was in lapped traffic quickly, as he was already weaving through it by the fifth lap.

Lynton Jeffrey surged early, passing Nienhiser for third on lap seven, and then getting by Fisher for second a lap later, as a good three-car battle ensued. Nienhiser was also able to get by Fisher claiming the third spot. Disaster struck for Fisher 11 laps in, when he cut a right rear tire, spoiling his top five effort.

By the time the caution flag fell, Schneiderman had put four lapped cars between himself and Jeffrey. Those cars were erased on the restart, but it was no matter. Schneiderman was back in lapped traffic with nine to go, while the rest scrambled for second. Nienhiser and Jeffrey tangled for the runner-up spot, before Nienhiser grabbed it for good with eight to go.

Schneiderman sailed to victory, lapping up to tenth place. Nienhiser held second, ahead of Jeffrey, Chris Martin and Kaley Gharst. Wyatt Wilkerson, Daniel Bergquist, Josh Higday, Rob Kubli and Riley Goodno rounded out the top ten. Bergquist, Cody Wehrle, Schneiderman and Jeffrey were heat winners, while Jeffrey also claimed the Dash.

Misfortune fell on Justin Buchholz, who got upside down in hot laps. Noah Samuel got upside down in his heat after contact from another car. Neither was injured, but done for the night. The B main only went one lap, as three of the seven competitors tangled in turns three and four (Austin Miller, Cam Martin, Matt Johnson).

“We felt pretty good all night,” said Schneiderman. “We had a couple issues we struggled with early, but we got them sorted out. We were lightning quick. It doesn’t hurt, coming from a 410 to a 360, but at the end of the day, we just had thing rolling. I could roll the bottom or the top. I could slide in front of lapped cars, and do anything I needed to. With the experience we’ve gained at Knoxville over the years…you’ve got to go after (lapped traffic) like you’re going for the win. I made a couple mistakes in four, and I just kept racing harder. Lynton and Paul are no slouches, so I knew I needed to keep the speed up.”

“Josh was definitely the class of the field,” said Nienhiser. “I felt like we had a strong car, but we never had a chance to see what we had for him on a restart. We got to racing with Lynton and some other guys. He checked out. We were happy with second place. Normally we wouldn’t say that as many times as we’ve run second, but staring eighth, we had some work to do. I wish we hadn’t started so deep.”

“Josh was definitely fast,” said Jeffrey. “He definitely set sail there at the end, and had a good car. He must know this track really well. I couldn’t keep up with him, that’s for sure. These guys race hard, and I’ve got to give them a lot of credit. There’s no easy wins here in this series. We’ll have to come back and redeem ourselves a little bit in a few weeks.”

The Sprint Invaders next action will be Saturday, September 12 at the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa, and Sunday, September 13 at the Randolph County Raceway near Moberly, Missouri. It has also been announced that the series finale “Fall Brawl” on Saturday, October 10, at the 34 Raceway will be $5,000 to win!

Bubak Rallies Late for Second Lubbock Wrecker Service DCRP Sprint Nationals Triumph while Brandon Kenny Takes Last Lap Sport Modified Mayhem

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (August 22, 2020) – Jake Bubak emerged from a torrid, race-long three-way battle for the lead to score his second consecutive Lubbock Wrecker Service DCRP Sprint Car Nationals triumph by topping Saturday night’s 30-lap finale atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval.

Bubak led only the final six circuits aboard the Wells-powered Coyote Candle Company No. 74b Maxim after Jason Martin and Zach Blurton both shared time pacing the field in the Fourth Annual event. Bubak collected $3,970 for the win and earned a total of $5,170 for the three-day weekend.

While Bubak took Sprint Car honors, Brandon Kenny took advantage of Luke Stallbaumer’s misfortune and then edged Mike Roach in a thrilling drag race to the checkered flag to take the $1,500-winner’s share in the 30-lap Seventh Annual IMCA Sport Modified Mayhem North vs. South Duel.

After the night’s three Last Chance Heat Races filled positions seven through 16 for the 30-lap DCRP Sprint Car Nationals finale, Jason Martin flexed his muscle by racing from fifth to win the 6-lap Hambelton Racing Pole Dash and the $300 that went with it by making a last-lap pass of Bubak on the high side.

And, after passing 25 cars in Thursday and Friday’s preliminary feature action, Martin made the most of the pole starting position by gunning into the initial lead ahead of Bubak and third-starter Zach Blurton.

The tone was set early on, with the trio of Martin, Bubak and Blurton battling the entire distance.

Blurton began marching forward after a lap seven caution for Monty Ferreira, blasting past Bubak for second on the eighth lap and then surging ahead of Martin for the point on the tenth round. Bubak made his way past Martin briefly on the 20th lap, but Martin made his way back around Bubak and reclaimed the lead from Blurton on the 23rd circuit.

Bubak was hot on Martin’s heels, following his past Blurton and then making his way into the lead on the 25th lap. Martin kept the heat on, looking for an opening to make a last lap move but had to settle for runner-up honors in the Myers-powered Trucks Plus/Speedway Motors No. 5x EMI.

Blurton settled for the show position in the Myers-powered J&K Trucking No. 11 Maxim with Taylor Velasquez and Jordan Knight rounding out the top five. Jeremy Huish was sixth with Chase Randall, David Luckie, Luke Cranston and Ray Seemann completing the top ten.

Cranston picked up the $500 Steve Hilker Trucking, Inc., Hard Charger Award, Blurton picked up the $500 Adams Roofing Mid-Way Bonus and Blake Scott was awarded the $250 Adams Roof Tech “Best Appearing Car” Award.

A total of 40 cars took part in the Fourth Annual Lubbock Wrecker Service DCRP Sprint Car Nationals.

In the Seventh Annual IMCA Sport Modified Mayhem North vs. South Duel, Woodward, Oklahoma’s Brandon Kenny edged into the lead racing towards the checkered flag in the 30-lapper to become the sixth different winner of the event.

Following a pair of cautions with one lap in the books, pole starter Luke Stallbaumer slipped away from the field under an extended green flag run as Mike Roach held down second with Jeff Kaup in third.

After starting sixth, Kenny held steady until he began climbing through the pack after ten laps. Gaining momentum, Kenny made his way past Kaup for third on the 17th lap and then reeled in Roach by the 23rd lap as Stallbaumer cruised out front with nearly a straightaway advantage.

Misfortune struck Stallbaumer at that point as his right rear tire went low and the duo of Roach and Kenny quickly reeled him in and made quick work of the slowing machine on lap 26. Stallbaumer’s tire finally shredded a lap later, setting up a three-lap dash to the checkered with Roach leading Kenny.

Kenny went to the high side to work on Roach, finally pulling alongside as the white flag flew. The duo battled side-by-side for the final 3/8-of-a-mile with Kenny getting a strong run off the final corner to flash under the checkered flag with less than a car-length advantage.

Wilmot Raceway

(Wilmot, Wis., Saturday, August 22, 2020)--Bill Balog of Hartford, nicknamed the "North Pole Nightmare" as he originally came from Alaska, scored his fourth Bumper to Bumper Interstates Racing Association (IRA) feature at Wilmot Raceway and eighth on the IRA 2020 series.
Balog overtook the lead from Howards Grove's Mike Reinke 8 laps into the 11th Annual 36-lap Roger Iles Tribute presented by Carriage Auto Body of Waukegan, IL. The victory marketed Balog's fifth in the Iles event, having won in 2013, 2016, 2017 and 2019. The win also secured Balog's first ever Wilmot Raceway 410 Outlaw Winged Sprint Car Regular Season Series Championship.
Reinke finished second. Blake Nimee of Oswego, IL was third.
Derek Crane of Waukegan, IL won his second Autometer/Brewington Electric Wisconsin Wingless Sprints feature of the season taking top honors in the 3rd Annual Bill Grogan Tribute. Crane held off heavy challenges from Trevor's Chris Dodd as the two got side by side several times in the closing laps. Dodd finished second with Shawn Swim of Zion, IL recording a career best third place.
C.J. Malueg of Johnsburg, IL captured his second IRA Lightning Sprints feature win in a row. Pleasant Prairie's Mike Neau was second. Slinger's Jeff Schmidt third.
John Kirk, Ion Stear and Nick Petska each flipped their machines in separate incidents, with none of the drivers injured.
Salem's Ryan Johnson, defending Bandit 4-Cylinder Stock Car champion, finally cracked the feature win column in 2020 taking top honors in the non-stop 20-lap main event. Johnson barely made it, however, as his left-rear tire went flat as he was coming into victory lane. Scott Ellis of Lake Villa, IL finished second. John Cole of McHenry, IL took third.
Johnson's win sets up a title defense battle with Cole leading the Bandits heading into their final season point championship scheduled on Saturday, August 29.
AutoMeter/Brewington Electric Wisconsin Wingless Sprints, Modifieds and Street Stocks are on the program as well.
Grandstands open at 5 p.m. with hot laps at 6 pm and racing to follow. Grandstand admission is $15.00 for ages 12 and over, with ages 11 & under admitted free.
For updates phone the trackside raceline 262-862-2090, check the track website wilmotraceway.com, or the official Wilmot Raceway Facebook Page.

Quinton Benson Shines with POWRi WAR at Central Missouri Speedway

Warrensburg, MO. (08/22/2020) Attacking the pristine quarter-mile racing surface of Central Missouri Speedway the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League would battle for twenty-five circles around the Warrensburg Missouri facility in an amazing display of wheel-work put forth by all entrants. After the final flags waved Quinton Benson would grab the feature victory from an outside front-row starting spot and working his way through lap-traffic with precision.

With a great field of POWRi Lucas Oil Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League competitors signing into the event all vying for the top-spot, early racing action would see Wesley Smith, Tom Curran, and Quinton Benson all claiming heat race victories as Riley Kreisel posted the top practice time during hot-lap sessions with a 13.178-second lap-time.

As the twenty-five-lap feature event would roar to life off turn four, high-point qualifier award-winner Wesley Smith #12 and fellow heat-race winner Quinton Benson #31 would make up the front row. Drivers would fly into green flag racing with Smith gaining the early preferred line and running spot by grabbing the lead. Not to be denied Benson, would stay close swapping the lead several times in the early stages. With less than half the feature remaining Riley Kreisel #91 would take the point by using a spectacular three-wide maneuver and appear to be the class of the field. Leading the pack for several laps Kreisel would maintain the point until a miscue on the exit off turn four would send Riley into the front-stretch wall taking him from the competition. Wesley Smith would then pace the field back to green flag racing with eight laps remaining as a battle for nearly every position was waged.

Setting the stage for an amazing finish Smith and Benson would continue to swap the lead until a great run in turns one and two would see Quinton Benson earn the edge upfront. Riding the high-side momentum Benson would lead the remaining laps parking his McGarry Motorsports ride in victory lane. "I knew if I was going to get past Wesley, I had to make my move in the first couple of corners. I'm lucky, McGarry's put me into a fast ride here tonight, all credit goes to that team" a very celebratory Benson would state in the CMS victory lane. Wesley Smith would be in the mix up-front all-night finishing in the runner-up spot. Rookie of the year contender Tom Curran #11x would impress everyone with an outstanding run, claiming a heat race victory and rounding out the feature event's podium finishers.

Jake Neuman Triumphs at Mighty Macon Speedway

Macon, IL. (08/22/2020) Advancing from the 2nd spot, outside of row one, Jake Neuman of New Berlin, IL. methodically marched his way through the field and into contention for the lead late on in the 30-lap main event at Macon Speedway. Sneaking by Cannon Mcintosh and Buddy Kofoid, Neuman to inherit the lead on lap 21 and held on to take his trip to victory lane.

The 30-lap main event would line up with Cannon McIntosh of Bixby, OK. and Jake Neuman on the front row. Mcintosh claimed the initial lead aboard his Keith Kunz Motorsports No. 71k, but his control was short-lived, as Buddy Kofoid made a wild four-wide move entering turn number 1 and slid underneath four cars to take over the second position on the second lap.

On the ensuing restart after an early caution, Kofoid took a look to the inside of McIntosh into turn one, but slight contact created a bobble and stacked the field back up. Checking out as the laps wound down, Kofoids lead only grew until a caution halfway through as Jake Neuman took over the second position. Neuman sits in the second position waiting to make his move and take over the lead. Neuman found for the lead and conquered on lap 21, as a caution comes out. The field stacked back up and set up a nail-biting 5 laps after the restart to decide it all. Nauman determined to break through for his first POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League victory this year, sticks to the top side and does just so.

Buddy Kofoid of Penngrove, CA. brought the Keith Kunz Motorsports No. 67 home with a second-place finish, while teammate Cannon McIntosh rounded off a podium finish in his No. 71k Keith Kunz Motorsports entry. Mitchell Davis finished in the fourth position and Zach Daum rounded out the top five.

"I thought they were going to wreck each other, they got together a little bit, so I just had to take advantage of it. This really helps with the championship and beating the KKM cars, they are the best there is." Winner Jake Neuman

"Towards the end I did some things to my line and passed cannon back, and honestly I think I was better than jake at the end." Buddy Kofoid finishing in the second position.

"We've been pretty good the last few nights, I tried everything. I thought I had myself in a good spot there at the end and I just let it slip away. I can't thank everything on this team enough." Cannon McIntosh finishing in the third position

Henry continues Attica dominance, sweeps the weekend; Weaver earns 305 victory; Valenti scores truck win

Saturday, Aug. 22, 2020

ATTICA, Ohio – Cap Henry continued his dominance at Attica Raceway Park Saturday, lapping up to the fourth place car to earn his seventh 410 victory of the year and an extra $1,000 for sweeping the double-header weekend at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant on Foster’s Auto Body/Croghan Colonial Bank Night.

Henry, from Republic, Ohio, took the lead on lap 8 of the 30 lap affair and never looked back in the non-stop feature for the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints. It was his 10th overall victory of 2020 and his 12 career win at Attica.

“With tonight not being a points night Zach (Meyers) and I kind of took a little bit of an effort to try some stuff we haven’t been able to….not really sure if it was better or not but we were good. It’s crazy to stand down here this much in a season. Zach and Jim and Brett and Tess and Dana and Patty and everyone involved…it takes a team effort to do this and I’m super grateful for what I have,” said Henry beside his Dragons Milk White, New Holland Spirits, Beer Barrel Bourbon, FK Rod Ends, Wings Unlimited, Kistler Engines, J&J Auto Racing, Linder Shocks, Simpson, Ballistic Designs, Big D’s Pizza, Lead Head Water Fowl, Geck Electric, Nemesis Designs backed #4

Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver became the third leader of the 25 lap Fremont Fence 305 Sprints A-main on lap 20 and drove to his fourth feature win of the season at Attica. It was his 53rd career win in the division at the track.

“We struggled the last couple of weeks….we were a top five car. We just tightened it up a little more and going out second definitely helped as far as maneuvering around. You didn’t have to rely on the top which was fast with a clear track. I have to thank B&B Drain, Bob Hampshire and Dave Rice, M&L Excavating,” said Weaver.

Fostoria, Ohio’s Shawn Valenti held off several late race charges from Jim Holcomb to earn the dirt truck feature win. It was his 19th career win in the division at Attica as he sits atop the all-time victory list.

“I watched Jamie (Miller) in that 305 race and I thought man he’s going to do same thing in truck and be tough. A lot of guys want to count this truck out already but I think we’re going to be around awhile. I have to thank Adam Jones at A Plus Auto Center for the extra money tonight. He’s an awesome guy and a great backer on this truck,” said Valenti beside his Best Performance Motorsports, A Plus Auto Center, Craig Miller Trucking, KS Sales & Service, Gressman Powersports, Dave Story Equipment, Speedways Bar and Grill backed #7B.

“A couple of weeks ago I lost a dear friend who was a good fan. We lost him to cancer and I want to say this one is for you crazy Dave,” added Valenti.

Cale Conley and Henry brought the field to green for the 30-lap 410 A-main with Conley bolting into a commanding lead over Henry, Mitch Harble, John Ivy, Travis Philo and Chad Kemenah. With two laps in a tremendous battle ensued for third involving Harble, Philo and Ivy with Philo taking the position a lap later.

Henry started steadily eating away at Conley’s lead and on lap eight threw a slider at him for the top spot in turns three and four. Philo grabbed second from Conley on lap 11 with Harble, Ivy, Stuart Brubaker and Kemenah in pursuit.

Henry was simply too good and drove away for the win with Philo, Conley, Ivy and Brubaker rounding out the top five.

Jamie Miller and Steve Rando comprised the front row of the 25 lap 305 sprint A-main and when the green flew Miller gained the advantage of Kyle Peters, Matt Foos, Rando, Mike Keegan and Weaver. Following a caution on lap two, Miller began to pull away while Foos moved into second.

Following a caution on lap four, Miller again got an excellent restart but could not shake Foos with Peters locked in a battle for third with Rando and Weaver. The race ground to a halt on lap eight for a Kody Brewer flip and after he walked back to the pits the racing action resumed with Miller leading Foos while Weaver charged from fourth to third.

By lap 14 Weaver began to close on Miller and Foos. Foos was able to wrestle the lead away on lap 17 with Weaver taking second two circuits later. With five laps to go Weaver drove into the lead but Foos and Miller were glued to his rear bumper.

Once in the lead Weaver pulled away the remaining four laps for the win over Foos, Miller, Keegan and Seth Schneider.

Things heated up quickly at the drop of the green for the 15 lap dirt truck feature with Dustin Keegan holding a slight advantage over Steve Sabo, Andy Keegan, Kyle Lagrou, Paul Brown Junior and Valenti. Following a caution after a lap was scored, Keegan and Sabo battled side by side for the lead while Valenti worked his way to fourth by lap three.

Sabo took the lead on lap four with Keegan and Valenti making it a three-wide affair with Valenti taking the lead on lap six. Valenti could not shake the field as Sabo and a charging Jim Holcomb stayed within striking distance.

A caution with four laps to go put Holcomb and Sabo right on Valenti’s deck lid but Valenti blasted the high line and drove to the victory over Holcomb, Sabo, Jamie Miller and Austin Black.

It’s season championship night with double points on the line for the 410 and 305 sprints and late models on Kistler Racing Products/Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome Plating presents the Mark Keegan Classic Friday, Aug. 28

Zach Blurton Claims Second Preliminary Night of Sprint Car Nationals at Dodge City Raceway Park with United Rebel Sprint Series

DODGE CITY, Kansas (August 21, 2020) – Forty cars entered into competition on Friday night for the second preliminary night of the Fourth Annual Sprint Car Nationals at Dodge City Raceway Park with the United Rebel Sprint Series. Lucas Oil POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series Presented by Mel Hambelton Ford Racing point leader, Zach Blurton, claimed the victory when apparent winner, John Carney II, was disqualified during post-race inspections.

It was Carney and Blake Scott setting the pace for the 25-lap feature event on Friday night. Scott took off with the early lead, but by the second time around the track Carney had advanced to the lead. Scott would battle to keep the second position, dueling with Zach Blurton and Chase Randall.

Thursday night’s preliminary feature winner, Jake Bubak, worked his way through the field from a 10th place starting position. A restart on lap 15 saw Blurton rocket past Bubak, Randall, and Scott.

Blurton would claim Friday’s preliminary feature win after a disqualification of the original winner, locking him into Saturday’s finale Hambelton Racing Dash for Cash. Arvada, Colorado’s Jake Bubak claimed second, and Chase Randall third. Jason Martin battled through the field after transferring from the second B-Feature and starting 18th to finish fourth, while Blake Scott rounded out the top-five.

United Rebel Sprint Series drivers, Taylor Velasquez, Jordan Knight, and Steven Richardson finished sixth through eighth. Jake Martens and Vance Wofford would complete the top-ten finishers in Friday’s preliminary feature event.

The top six in combined points from Thursday and Friday’s preliminary events sees all regulars with the United Rebel Sprint Series. Jake Bubak leads the combined points for Saturday’s finale Dash for Cash. Blurton follows behind by 16.5 points, while Jason Martin, Taylor Velasquez, Jordan Knight, and Jeremy Huish found themselves also locked into the Dash for Cash, setting the first three rows of the $3,000-to-win feature event on Saturday.

Burks Takes USAC Win, Snyder Conquers SSN, Fuqua, Nichols and Barnes also Winners

By: Jacob Blair

OSBORN, Mo. – A strong field of cars in all divisions checked in to race on a perfect weather night at US 36 Raceway. With two series of sprint cars on the card, the fans had plenty of on track action, and the racing exceeding expectations.

The USAC Midwest Wingless Racing Association put on a stellar show throughout the 23-car field. Wesley Smith took the point early in the race and would hold the lead for a good portion of the event. With only one caution slowing the race two laps in, it was clear lapped traffic would play a role in deciding the final outcome.

Wyatt Burks made his move to the front late in the race as he chose the right lane in traffic and snuck away to make the trip to Westfall GMC Victory Lane. Cody Baker followed Burks through to finish second. Smith settled for third, holding off the hard charging Don Droud Jr., who finished fourth after starting 11th. Riley Kreisel completed the top five, finishing fifth.

The Sprint Series of Nebraska put on a fantastic show, as Toby Chapman, Jason Danley and Stuart Snyder would battle it out for the win. After two early cautions, the majority of the race went green. Chapman led early and looked to have the field covered, however Danley and Snyder kept him within a few car lengths.

With the long green flag run to the end, Chapman entered heavy lapped traffic. Making the correct lane choice in traffic proved pivotal as Snyder used it not only to move around Danley for second, but would also make the right decision in traffic to take the lead. Snyder led the remaining laps to earn the win. Chapman finished second with Danley in third. Tyler Drueke and Kenny Potter completed the top five.

The IMCA Modifieds took a couple tries to get going, but once they got in a rhythm, Shayne Bailey found himself pacing the field. While Bailey led, both Steven Bowers Jr. and Chad Andersen, Andersen leading by eight points in the championship battle, began their charge through the field.

Bailey worked the low side, with Bowers up high and Anderson lurking in third. At about the halfway point, Bowers began challenging for the lead. Meanwhile, Darren Fuqua, making his first start at US 36 this season, methodically had worked to the fourth position. Bowers, after running side-by-side with Bailey for two laps, took the lead right before the final caution of the race flew. On the restart, Fuqua moved to second and began his challenge on Bowers. As Fuqua reached Bowers quarter panel, mechanically failure put Bowers to the infield and Fuqua found victory lane. Bailey finished second and Andersen third. Mark Schafman moved up 15 positions to finish fourth, while Dustin Campbell charged from 18th to finish fifth.

The IMCA Stock Cars went clean and green, which didn’t stop Mike Nichols from storming through the field from a 12th place starting position, to pick up the win. He battled for several laps with early race leader Brad Whitney, before Whitney pulled pit side with an issue. Steve Starmer quietly moved up five spots to finish second. Blake Peeler also went plus five to finish third. Brad Labonte and Brad Derry completed the top five.

At the end of the night, the Stock Cars also ran the special Shocker Chassis Six Pack Shootout. Six drivers voted into the bracket style event by the fans, Mich Ross, JJ Baumli, Anthony Whitham, Brad Derry, Carson Masoner and Blake Peeler, put on quite the show to conclude the night. The double elimination format saw drivers have multiple opportunities to find their way into the championship battle. Baumli never saw the consolation side of the bracket and picked up the special event win, beating Mich Ross in the final race.

The Pure Stocks also never saw the yellow flag, which forced some drivers starting further back to make decisive moves. Nate Barnes would do so, passing seven cars to earn his second win of 2020. Tyler Starmer led briefly from his sixth starting position late in the race, before Barnes moved by. Starmer finished second, with DJ Barnes third, Anthony Persell fourth and Brandon Hoover fifth.

Up next at US 36 is a visit from the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars on Saturday, August 29. The E-Modifieds will also be racing in a non-points event. Information and tickets for the race is available at https://worldofoutlaws.com/schedule/event-info/?event=229726.

Blurton Banks Lubbock Wrecker Service DCRP Sprint Car Nationals Friday Night Loot

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (August 22, 2020) – The Jake Bubak run of domination at Dodge City Raceway Park’s Lubbock Wrecker Service DCRP Sprint Car Nationals finally came to a halt on Friday night.

But not by much, and not even by who it may have appeared to have been.

Quinter’s Zach Blurton was awarded the win in Friday night’s 25-lap preliminary feature at the Fourth Annual Lubbock Wrecker Service DCRP Sprint Car Nationals after the mount of apparent winner John Carney II failed to pass post-race technical inspection.

It puts Blurton in position to potentially become the first Kansas racer to win the event after previous winners have hailed from Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado.

Blurton earned a position in Saturday night’s Hambelton Racing Pole Dash that will set the first three rows of the 30-lap, $3,000-to-win finale along with Thursday night winner Bubak, Jason Martin, Taylor Velasquez, Jordan Knight and Jeremy Huish.

While Blurton took Sprint Car honors, Troy Bynum and Mike Roach led the way in the Seventh Annual IMCA Sport Modified Mayhem North vs. South Duel qualifying races.

With Bubak riding a wave of four consecutive DCRP Nationals feature wins including a sweep of last year’s three nights of competition and then Thursday night’s preliminary win, Bubak had to race from the 10th starting position of Friday night’s feature event as Oklahoma’s Blake Scott led the opening circuit from the front row outside.

Carney II raced into the lead entering turn one on the second round and led the rest of the way, but all for naught.

The battle behind him was intense and proved critical with Scott fending off Blurton and Chase Randall in the early rounds as Bubak made his way into the top five by the fifth round.

With Scott still leading what proved to be the lead battle through traffic, Randall raced past Blurton on the seventh lap and then Bubak demoted Blurton by another position on the 14th round, just a lap before a caution came for Kris Moore’s slowing mount.

Blurton’s machine came to life on the lap 15 restart, disposing of Bubak, Randall and then Scott in the next two circuits before checking out on the scrum for position aboard the Myers-powered J&K Trucking No. 11 Maxim en route to a DCRP feature win for a fourth consecutive year.

With Scott, Randall, Bubak and the surging Jason Martin swapping positions repeatedly over the closing rounds, Bubak picked up runner-up honors in the Coyote Candle No. 11 with Waco, TX, young gun Randall filling out the podium in third.

After decimating the field in the second “B” Main, Martin sliced through the field from 18th to capture fourth in the Myers-powered Trucks Plus/Speedway Motors No. 5x EMI with Blake Scott rounding out the top five.

Taylor Velasquez was sixth in the final rundown with Jordan Knight in seventh as Steven Richardson nearly matched Martin’s rally through the field with a charge from 21st to eighth.  Jake Martens was ninth with Vance Wofford completing the top ten.

Blake Scott, Cody Lampe, Tyler Knight, Taylor Velasquez and Chase Randall topped heat race action for the 40-car field with Ray Seemann and Jason Martin victorious in the 12-lap “B” Mains.

Aside from Moore’s car slowing past the midway point, the caution flew only other time in the feature when Monty Ferriera’s race ended before it got started when he got into the turn three wall and finally stopped in turn four with race-ending damage.

Heat two was marred by a grinding crash in the night’s second heat in which Jody Reeves and Cody Hill flipped along the front straightaway and into turn one.  Hill was transported for observation and later released while Reeves walked away from the wreckage unharmed.

Troy Bynum and Mike Roach split victory honors in the opening portion of the Seventh Annual IMCA Sport Modified Mayhem North vs. South Duel by topping the 15-lap Qualifying Races.

Bynum led all the way in the first one to take the win ahead of Jeff Kaup with James Lott fending off Brendyn Nordyke for the third and final lock-in to tomorrow’s $1,500-to-win, 30-lap feature event with Roach racing to the stripe in the second qualifier ahead of Brandon Kenny and Luke Stallbaumer.

The Fourth Annual Lubbock Wrecker Service DCRP 305 Sprint Car Nationals and Seventh Annual IMCA Sport Modified Mayhem North vs. South Duel wraps up with Saturday’s championship slate of events that gets under way at 7:30 p.m.  The Kansas Antique Racers will be in action again as well.
