Chuck Hebing Wins another One at Woodhull Raceway

(Woodhull, NY) We all know that Chuck Hebing is good at just about every track he comes to, but Woodhull Raceway is a track he is great at, as he scored yet another win at the famed Bull Ring over Davie Franek and Denny Peebles.

Hebing was able to draw the pole, and he brought the 15-car field to the green. One lap in, Kyle Drum would lose control of the car coming off turn three due to a broken bolt on the car's front end. Drum would head into the work area, and the Drum Motorsports crew was able to make the proper repairs to return to the A Main.

Hebing would start pulling away from the rest of the field, but the seventh starter, Davie Franek, wasted no time getting to the front and attempted to track down Hebing.

Franek would get his chance to race for the lead on a lap 15 restart, and he capitalized by running the bottom as Hebing remained racing at the top, and Franek would be the new race leader on lap 16.

Franek began to pull away from the rest of the field while Hebing would hold Peebles off for the runner-up spot, followed by Dalton Rombough, Jonathan Preston, and Jordan Thomas.

On lap 24, another yellow would come out as Kyle Drum sustained front-end damage again, setting up a one-lap shoot-out.

Franek's car was working so well on the bottom, as was Hebing's car was working great on the top. As the two raced into the first set of corners, Franek would still be holding off Hebing. As they entered the final set of corners, Hebing made the car stick rolling the top, gathering a ton of speed, and beat Franek at the line to score his first PST victory of the season over Franek Denny Peebles, Dalton Rombough, and Jonathan Preston.

Heat race wins went to Kyle Drum and Denny Peebles, while Steve Glover won the Bonnell's Rod Shop Four Laps of Fame Dash.

The Patriots now receive another month off before competing at Outlaw Speedway again for the Outlaw Fall Nationals, which pays $4,000 to the winner.

Lee Jacobs Races to 2nd Annual Pete Smith Memorial at Ohio Valley Speedway

For Immediate Release
Ohio Valley Speedway
Aug. 14, 2022

A packed house and a bulging pit area of over 150 racers would arrive at the Valley on Friday Night to participate in the Briscoe Run Land Surveying 2nd Annual Pete Smith Memorial presented by Smoker Friendly. A picture perfect weather night would see 28 fast OVSCA Sprint Cars arrive to race in honor of the late Pete Smith with Holmesville Ohio’s Lee Jacobs picking up the big win. Also garnering trips to the KMA Auto Victory Lane were Tyler Evans, KC Burdette, Brandon Francis, Jacob McDaniel, Karson Burdette and Colin Knox.

The 2nd Annual Pete Smith Memorial would be first up with the #25 of Chris Myers laying down the J&M Tree Service fast time and Lee Jacobs, Kory Crabtree and Hunter Lynch bagging the three heat races. In the 25 lap A-Main it would be Holmesville, Ohio’s Lee Jacobs blasting off the front row in convincing fashion to lead the twenty car field. As Jacobs was slicing and dicing thru lapped traffic, Ricky Peterson was following and waiting for a mistake by the driver of the 81 machine. A few times in heavy traffic, Peterson would appear to be closing but the fast hot rod of Jacobs was too much as the talented shoe would become the 2nd Annual Pete Smith victor in front of the appreciative crowd. Following Jacobs across the stripe was Peterson, Tyler Street, Kory Crabtree and Hud Horton.

A strong 28 car field of Las Trancas Super Lates would take to the track with Mineral Wells, WV’s Tyler Evans notching his first win of the season. A part time racer in 2022, the talented Evans would have no problem shaking the rust off as the pilot of the 17t was set on kill all evening long. It would not be an easy W however as he had a race long rear view mirror full look at a very game Derek Rogers. Rogers would apply persistent pressure throughout the event but Evans would never waiver. Evans would park his ride in the KMA Auto Victory Lane ahead of Rogers, Freddie Carpenter, Zach Hill and newcomer Avery Taylor.

Parkersburg, WV’s KC Burdette would make it six in a row in the Polymer Services UMP Modified division. The hotshoe of the KC44 would hold off a pesky Kyle Bond to secure the win as the duo were followed across the line by point leader Kenny Johnson, Cole Perine and Larry Bond.

Another strong field of 27 Pike Street Lanes Sportmods would see Brandon Francis aboard the 905 Francis Motorsports entry collect his first trip to the KMA Auto Victory Lane of the season at the Valley. Francis would best Cruz Vandall, Steven Dotson, Kendall Hodge with Toby Wilson rounding out the top five.

Picking up his second win of the season was Belpre, Ohio’s Jacob McDaniel in the Bill’s Auto Salvage SCDRA 4 Cylinder division. While McDaniel has had a stranglehold on the ‘Bullring’ victory lane on Saturday Night, it has been a lot of hard luck on Friday’s for the likeable driver of the McWilson Performance #22. McDaniel would notch his second trip to the KMA Victory circle ahead of Chris Wise, Chris Dyer, Joey Price and Sam Dickel.

Kicking off the action on the 2nd Annual Pete Smith Memorial would be the Mike’s Auto Body WRA Mini Wedges. It’s always great to see first time winners and that’s what we got in both divisions on Friday Night as both Colin Knox and Karson Burdette bagged their first wins of the season. Picking up the Veteran feature was Colin Knox over James Bailey and Tanner Ritchea while Karson Burdette scored the Young Gun feature over Walker Slayton and Easton Mayle.

Special thanks to Darren Griffith and Valerie Myers on making the 2nd Annual Pete Smith a great event and to all the sponsors who stepped up and gave the drivers a multitude of bonuses. Also kudos to the Toys for Tots organization and those donating ‘Backpacks’ for the kids.

Join us next Friday Night, August 19th for the KIDS Night of Wheels as we pay tribute to the kiddos with a BIKE Giveaway, Power Wheels Race and WRA ‘King of the Valley’ plus the rescheduled $1,000 to win Sportmod OH/WV Border Wars!


16 year old Leyton Wagner wins $3300 in Quarterson memorial Western pa sprint car championship; Krummert wins $3300 in BRP mod tour portion; Gomola(305s); Schaffer (crate mods) and Thompson(minis) repeat

By Jim Balentine
(Mercer,Pa)

The master of Mercer Ralph Quarterson was honored with the 3rd memorial race for him with twin 33 laps features for the 410 sprints and BRP big block modifieds both paying $3300 to win each. 16 year old Leyton Wagner won the biggest race of his career holding off Logan McCandless in the 410s and Garrett Krummert winning the BRP modified portion. Jake Gomola took his 2nd Racesaver 305 sprint win; Brian Schaffer his 5th Fastrak modified; and Andy Thompson his 6th mini stock event this season.

The Wagner name has been around Mercer for many many years and third generation driver leyton picked up the biggest winner of his career but it was not easy as Logan McCandless would hound Wagner for the duration of the event. Wagner would lead from his pole position with McCandless in tow going back-and-forth for the lead doing slide job after slide job on each other. Meanwhile surprise visitor Dale Blaney would battle with Brandon Spithaler for the 3rd position. A yellow on lap 11 would bunch up the field but on the restart Wagner would still be battling McCandless back and forth for the lead but would end up leading every lap to add his name to the historic western pa sprint car championship winners list winning by .387 seconds. McCandless would be 2nd; Dale Blaney 3rd ; Brandon Spithaler 4th and Adam Kekich from the tail would be 5th.
“I started getting nervous on the restarts..he (Logan) was right behind me and I heard him coming but I didn’t know where to run either the top or bottom but I’m proud that I won!!!This means everything for this season ..I wasn’t performing and dad give me a great car at and I’m glad I could win this for the family. The $3300 will definitely help out with this operation. I want to thank the kid who pulled the #1 pill for me as well!!”
McCandless would pick up the $500 dash for cash sponsored by Derek Snyder and self made racing and homer’s sanitary.

Garrett Krummert would overtake Canadian invader Tyler Willard on lap 21 to win the BRP modifed portion of the Ralph Quarterson memorial from his 8th starting position and $3300 dollars.
Garrett would say in victory lane “we were good…when I started 8th I thought I’d be in trouble especially with Rudolph and King and Murdick all knowing how to get around this place. I think we were just a little better on the bottom and the cautions were timed just right.10 years ago we used to race here all the time and raced on the bottom so we just did that again and it worked out!” Rex King jr was 2nd; Dave Murdick 3rd; Erick Rudolph from the pits was 4th and Rick Regalski 5th.

Racesaver 305 sprint 2019 division champ Jake Gomola was not to be denied his 2nd feature win of the year and his 7th career by dominating from the pole position. A 3 car crash in turn 2 which would bunch up the field would be the only way that 14 time winner Jimmy Morris could get around Gomola but it was to no avail as he won by 1.22 seconds over Morris. Vivian Jones finished 3rd; point leader Jeremy Kornbau was 4th and Lance Christie was 5th.

The Fastrak/602 Crate mods would be a survival of the fittest with many cars going off on the hook. Michal Kristyak would lead from the pole and was running a good race until Brian Schaffer from 5th would pass him for the lead on lap 6. Caution would fly and then on the Restart Nathaniel Bale locked his rear end bars with Makayla Guidace’s front end in turn one.Once the cars were untangled a red came out for a hard 3 car pile up involving jolene Smith, Don Cornelius, and Shayne Izzo in turn 4. No driver was injured. One the restart Schaffer was on cruise control winning by 2.68 seconds over Kristyak. Gage Priester, Caden Petry, and Makayla Guidace-Shannon would be 3rd 4th and 5th respectively.

Andy Thompson continued his dominance of the mini stock division by winning his 6th feature of the year. The event got off to a bad start when at least eight cars got together in turn 4 before a lap was even completed. Devin Haley was running strong at the beginning of the race setting the sights on his first career win in the division leading the first five laps until Thompson took over for good on lap six. A few more cautions with one of the race but Thompson would eventually take the win easily by 2.90 seconds over Haley’s as his car erupted into a ball of flame on the pit exit chute.he was OK once the fire was extinguished.Nick robie had his best career finish with 3rd, Will Aley 4th and Josh Eackman 5th.

Scheduled for next week will be a regular four division show plus the 410 sprints come back for 3000 to win.

Kaleb Montgomery, Dan Brown Jr., Wayne Trimble and Mike Miller claim Fan Appreciation Night wins at Placerville Speedway

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…A wild and intense evening highlighted Thompson’s Fan Appreciation Night in front of a large and vocal crowd at Placerville Speedway on Saturday. In the end it was Templeton’s Kaleb Montgomery, who became the sixth different driver this season to claim their initial Winged Sprint Car win on the quarter mile.

Montgomery was joined in victory lane by Dan Brown Jr. with the Mtn. Democrat Ltd. Late Models, Wayne Trimble with the Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks and Mike Miller with the Mtn. Democrat Mini Trucks. Dan Jinkerson wrapped up the Late Model title on Saturday, while Thomas Jensen secured his first Truck championship.

Things started off exciting at the waving of the green flag in the 25-lap Thompson’s Winged Sprint Car feature, as Montgomery, Jodie Robinson and Shane Hopkins battled three-wide off the second corner. Montgomery got the better of the deal and blasted out front aboard the Dale Miller Septic/ Thompson’s Auto No. 4SA mount. Immediately after that however, young Joel Myers Jr. carved his way to the inside of the speedway and climbed to second, before peeking to the inside of the leader.

Myers was relentless as he stalked Montgomery and on lap four would charge around the outside to nip him at the line. The pair proceeded to keep the crowd on the edge of their seats during a torrid side by side fight for the top spot. The lone caution of the race then waved on lap 12, setting up a double file restart that saw Hopkins challenge Myers for the second spot. Montgomery sat out front riding the cushion to perfection, but late in the going caught up to traffic and it did allow both Myers and Hopkins to close.

Coming to the white flag Montgomery banged the cushion off turn four and Myers tucked right up to his inside. Montgomery hit his marks on the final lap however and crossed under the Ron Stahl checkered flag for the win. He joins Tony Gomes, Chase Majdic, Jodie Robinson, Corey Day and Michael Faccinto as drivers who have captured their first Placerville Speedway Sprint Car victory this season. Myers Jr. crossed the stripe in second to record back-to-back runner up finishes on the red clay. Hopkins, Landon Brooks and Steven Tiner completed the top-five.

Rounding out the top-10 in the main event were Willie Croft, Blake Carrick, Andy Forsberg, 18th starter Dylan Bloomfield and Tanner Holmes. Montgomery began the evening by earning his second ADCO Driveline and Custom Exhaust Fast Time Award of the season. The 22-year-old ripped around the bullring in 10.747 seconds to set the standard in the 31-car field.

Winged Sprint Car finish: 1. 4SA-Kaleb Montgomery[1]; 2. 46JR-Joel Myers Jr[5]; 3. 21-Shane Hopkins[3]; 4. 5V-Landon Brooks[7]; 5. 7C-Steven Tiner[9]; 6. 29-Willie Croft[4]; 7. 5H-Blake Carrick[11]; 8. 92-Andy Forsberg[6]; 9. 83V-Dylan Bloomfield[18]; 10. 18T-Tanner Holmes[12]; 11. 98M-Michael Pombo[8]; 12. 4-Jodie Robinson[2]; 13. 94-Greg Decaires V[17]; 14. 12J-John Clark[15]; 15. 21W-Josh Wiesz[16]; 16. 29T-Ryan Timmons[20]; 17. 1-Chance Grasty[13]; 18. 87-Ashlyn Rodriguez[10]; 19. 98-Chris Masters[19]; 20. 9L-Luke Hayes[14]

The Mtn. Democrat Ltd. Late Models showcased a 20-lap main event that featured a little bit of everything. Solid racing, some drama and a championship were all wrapped up in one night. Martinez driver Anthony Slaney held command early on as Lincoln’s Dan Brown Jr. and Diamond Springs Dan Jinkerson slotted themselves in second and third respectively. Brown then found the high side to his liking and charged after Slaney for the top spot, leading lap 11 by inches at the line.

The outstanding race up front saw Jinkerson pop his nose in there to make it a three-car tussle for the top spot. With the race winding down Brown navigated his way around the cushion and got a run on the leader. With the white flag in the air, it was an all out battle for the win. Brown snuck to the outside of Slaney and as they entered turn three slight contact appeared to take place that resulted in Slaney spinning to a stop.

The main event was not over just yet though. With Brown looking for his first win since 2020 he rounded the final set of corners during a restart, but would feature hard contact from Slaney, who rode around slowly waiting for the leader. The result was a DQ for Slaney due to the intentional contact. Brown was put back in the lead during the final restart and ended up claiming the victory over Jinkerson, Matt Michelli, Jay Norton and Tyler Lightfoot.

Dan Jinkerson put together a magical campaign and secured his second consecutive Late Model title at Placerville Speedway. He ended up with six wins in the eight events held this season.

Ltd. Late Model finish: 1. 15-Dan Brown Jr[6]; 2. 23-Dan Jinkerson[5]; 3. 96M-Matt Micheli[8]; 4. 15J-Jay Norton[7]; 5. 23J-Tyler Lightfoot[4]; 6. 57-Rod Oliver[2]; 7. 23A-Mike Lightfoot[9]; 8. 29-Matt Davis[11]; 9. 98-Kiely Ricardo[3]; 10. 4SALE-Josh Combs[10]; 11. (DQ) 4X-Anthony Slaney[1]

In the 20-lap Red Hawk Casino main event it was all about Auburn’s Wayne Trimble for much of the contest, but towards the end he felt heavy pressure from the Jinkerson brothers. With just a few circuits left you could have put a blanket over the top three cars as Kevin Jinkerson looked to Trimble’s inside on a few occasions. Trimble ran a mistake free last two laps and drove off to snag his second career Pure Stock win at the track. Kevin Jinkerson, Dan Jinkerson, Jonny Walsh and Chris D’angelo completed the top-five.

Pure Stock finish: 1. 68E-Wayne Trimble[3]; 2. 30-Kevin Jinkerson[11]; 3. 52-Dan Jinkerson[9]; 4. 4-Jonny Walsh[6]; 5. 1-Chris D'angelo[13]; 6. 93-Mel Byers[12]; 7. 17-Nick Baldwin[5]; 8. 87-Jason Poppert[4]; 9. 316-Ryan Murphy[1]; 10. 47-Michael Murphy[2]; 11. 74-Russell Murphy[7]; 12. 27-William Upton[8]; 13. 196-Micky Dangelo[10]

The Mtn. Democrat Mini Trucks finished off their 2022 season on Saturday. Reigning champion Mike Miller of Rancho Cordova held command out front and raced to his third victory of the year. Placerville’s own Thomas Jensen came home in second and it was good enough to lock up his initial championship at Placerville Speedway. “Security Tom” claimed the title by just four slim points over Miller. Rounding out the top-five on Saturday were Ean Deal, Ted Ahart and Brycen Bragg.

Mini Truck finish: 1. 16-Mike Miller[3]; 2. 08JR-Thomas Jensen[2]; 3. 28-Ean Deal[4]; 4. 12-Ted Ahart[5]; 5. 75-Brycen Bragg[8]; 6. 61-Paizlee Miller[6]; 7. 07-Page Miller[7]; 8. 70-Austin Struthers[1]; 9. 65X-Brian Tremblay[9]

ORRVILLE - In fairy tales and folk lore, all good things come in groups of three. It was a popular number on Saturday night at the O’Reilly Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway.

Sprint Car star Henry Malcuit notched his third win of the season in the Pine Tree Towing-backed division while Ryan Markham’s legend continues to grow by registering consecutive victory number three in the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Models. Kyle Moore inched closer to a 30-win season by recording his third straight double-victory evening in winning both the Elite Munitions Modified and McKenzie Concrete Super Stock mains. The exception to the “power of three” occurred in the JoyRide Mini Stocks as Jordan James was victorious in a photo finish in what has become a weekly event in the speedway’s highly popular division.

And oh yes, the Quota of Wayne County’s ever-popular Kids Night hit it out of the park, too. Hundreds of youngsters got an up close and personal chance to meet their favorite drivers, receive autographs and pose for pictures as nearly the entire field of 115 entries brought their machines to the infield following qualifying. The Quota of Wayne County also gave away over 50 bicycles and numerous other prizes making the event one of the most successful in track history.

To top it all off, promoter Jason Flory and track crew had the speedway’s track surface perfect as well.

Malcuit, already one of the favorites in the upcoming $15,000-to-win Pete Jacobs Memorial (Sunday Sept. 4), solidified that opinion by leading from flag-to-flag in the 25-lap main event.

Malcuit led from the outset with Zeth Sabo and Jordan Ryan waging a torrid battle for second with Tyler Street and Trey Jacobs in tow. A red flag for a flipping Jake Hesson halted action on lap 16. Hesson escaped uninjured.

On the restart, Sabo jumped the cushion and dropped to fifth with Ryan now chasing Malcuit. Malcuit led the remaining nine circuits, increasing his points lead in the process with his eighth top six finish of the season. Ryan hung on for second, with Street, Jacobs, and Sabo rounding out the top five.

“We are getting faster at the right time of year,” Malcuit said. “The (Jacobs Memorial) is one we would really like to win. We didn’t set out to win the track championship, but we’ve been really good here all year.”

Moore scored win 23 on the season by winning the 27-lap, $1,027-to-win Danny Gardner Memorial for Super Stocks. Moore grabbed the lead on lap seven and never looked back for his 15th win in Bob Daugherty’s 21D.

2017 event winner Paul Holmes was second with Rott Shop Racing Teammates Took and Tyler Wiles third and fourth. Early leader Rob Melzer rode home fifth.

“Bob has thing fast every night and he wants to see his car run up front, and it was on a rail tonight,” said Moore. “The track was awesome again, and l hope we can stay on a roll.”

Markham wired the field in the Late Models for his fourth win at WCS and seventh overall. JR Gentry and Justin Chance locked horns for second until coming together just past the flag stand on lap 17 which relegated Chance to the Hutch Xtreme Photos work area.

Gentry hung on for a close second in the 25-lapper with Mitch Caskey third, Brett Bee fourth and Larry Bellman fifth.

“We’ve wanted to race a little more but we’re down to one motor and we want to make sure we can race here,” Markham said. “We had a great racetrack, great crowd and Kids Night was awesome too.”

Moore notched win 24 on the season as he wheeled TA Perrine’s 16T to Summit Racing Victory Lane in the 20-lap Modified main. Moore led from the outset with Markham, in Larry Reed’s R88, challenging first with Colton Shaw moving into second on lap five following a Markham spin in turn 4.

Shaw finished second with Casey Butler third, Allan Baker fourth and Markham in fifth from the tail.

“You can’t give up in this division with all these fast cars, especially with Colton in second,” Moore said. “We just kept pouring it to it and had enough to hang on.”

The Mini Stocks were up last, but for what seems like an every week occurrence, thrilled to crowd from start to finish.

Kyle Petit led until lap nine, with James, Doug Hensel, Travis Hutton, and Johnny Bruce Sr., among the early contenders. James grabbed the lead on lap 10, then held off Hensel on a furious last turn effort to steal the win. James held on by inches at the stripe ahead of Hensel, Petit, Bruce, and Hutton for his first win of the season.

“it feels great to be back (in victory lane),” said James. “We have had problems of some sort most of the season and have only finished four races. Hopefully, we can pick up a few more.”

The BOSS wingless sprints will join the Late Models, Modifieds, Super Stocks, and Mini Stocks next Saturday night at WCS.

BLAKE BOWER SCORES 19TH CAREER WMR TRIUMPH IN HISTORY-MAKING NIGHT IN MARYSVILLE

Marysville, Calif. (August 13, 2022) – 2021 Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction champion Blake Bower won his 19th career feature on Saturday night at Marysville, equaling David Prickett for the all-time wins mark in the stock production powered Midgets. The win also wrapped up Bower’s third consecutive WMR weekend sweep and boosted him to 11 wins in the 2022 series.

“It feels great. A lot of work goes into these cars. We just had to hit our marks right all night. (All the restarts) started getting on my nerves. But that’s just a part of it and that’s what makes you better,” Bower said.

Oakley’s Bryant Bell and Santa Cruz’ Logan Mitchell split the eight-lap heat races. Three incidents slowed the attempts at getting the feature underway. Peoria, Ariz.’s Cory Brown flipped in turn one, ending a challenging weekend for the long tow driver of the No. 32 Blud Lubricants machine. On the following try, Bower slid sideways which collected Mitchell. Both were able to continue after the caution fell. Bell slid to a stop in turn one on the third restart, sparking a multi-car melee. Paradise Valley, Ariz.’s Greg Jewett flipped while Lodi’s Nate Wait, Las Vegas’ Kyle Hawse, and Yuba City’s Nick Van Atta suffered race ending crashes as well. 360 Sprint Car winner Casey Schmitz of Chico retired under the red flag with a fuel pump issue.

Concord’s Adam Teves led the first three laps before Bower found the long way around the top of turn one, charging past Teves to lead lap four. Bell spun in turn one for an additional caution which set up a green-white-checkered finish. Bower held off Teves, Bell, and Rancho Cordova’s Craig Holsted for the win. Mitchell was scored fifth.

Western Midget Racing resumes with round 21 of the season on August 27 at Ventura Raceway. The action can be seen live on FloRacing!

2ND STRAIGHT $1000 UMP MOD WIN FOR JOEL WATSON; RYAN FRALEY WINS RUSH SPRINT THRILLER; PRO STOCK WIN #3 FOR CURT J BISH; CAREER 1ST SHARON WIN FOR AYDEN CIPRIANO IN RUSH MODS

 August 13, 2022

By Mike Leone

(Hartford, OH)…Sharon Speedway completed its 12th straight event during the 93rd anniversary season on a cloudy and cool evening in Northeast Ohio on Saturday night. Celebrating in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane for the "Steel Valley Thunder" program were Joel Watson- Hovis Auto & Truck Supply UMP Modifieds, Ryan Fraley-Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars, Curt J. Bish-Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, and Ayden Cipriano-HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. It was A&MP Electric and Cortland Mower Night.

After crashing with a lapped car while leading the June 18 Renegades of Dirt show, Joel Watson has redeemed himself by scoring his second straight $1,000 UMP Modified victory. Watson passed Joe Gabrielson on lap four and fended him off over the remainder of the 25-lap Hovis Auto & Truck Supply for his milestone 30th career Sharon win.

"We've put a lot of effort into the last couple nights," revealed the 48-year-old Conneaut, Ohio standout. "I can't thank all of the people on my team. Gary is one of the most special guys you could ever imagine. He joined our team this year and has made some amazing things happen. Yesterday we got a new motor after blowing two or three in a row, which is very devastating for any race team. We got lucky to get one at 6 p.m. last night, thrashed very hard to get it ready for the races last night, and we put on a very competitive race and backed it up with a win tonight. This is actually only the second night with this race car as we blew up the other nights and didn't get any laps on the car."

Gabrielson and Troy Johnson led the field to green with Gabrielson taking the early lead, while Watson charged from the fifth starting spot to second on the opening lap. Watson quickly went after Gabrielson and the two raced side-by-side for the lead on lap three. Watson would make the winning move in turn one on lap four.

Dennis Lunger, Jr. lost the handle in turn four and collected Bud Watson to bring out the first caution of the event with six laps scored. When racing resumed on lap seven, sixth starting Ty Rhoades entered the picture moving into third. Rhoades pressured Gabrielson for the runner-up spot on lap eight and the two raced side-by-side until a caution for a spin by Eric Nellis with 11 laps completed. After another caution for Nellis with 14 laps completed, the final 11 went green-to-checkered.

Gabrielson got a good restart and stayed with Watson. Gabrielson tried a big slider in turns one and two on lap 18 and made contact with Watson. The fence straightened Watson out, neither car spun as both maintained their positions. After the near mishap, Watson pulled away over the final seven laps to once again win by more than three seconds, 3.587 seconds to be exact, in his NWR/Close Racing Supply/Capp Steel Erectors/Tire Express/Walker Roofing/Lodge at the Lake/Zimmer's Service Center-sponsored #92.

Gabrielson then had to fight off Rhoades in the closing laps to finish second. Nate Young beat out Mike McGee in a great race for fourth. Mason Lobb was sixth. Alan Atkinson, who was slated to line up 13th, finished seventh and earned the $100 Summit Racing Equipment gift card for being the hard charger. Johnson dropped to eighth over Vinnie DePizzo. Bud Watson came back to complete the top 10. Heat winners were Watson and McGee.

Opening night RUSH Sprint Car winner, Ryan Fraley, returned to Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane for the second time this season. Fraley passed veteran Andy Priest on lap two then kept Blaze Myers and three-time Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Champion Chad Ruhlman at bay over an intense three-car battle for the win in the finals laps of the 20-lap Terry Bowser Excavating feature.

"I seen him sneak down there and figured I needed to go to the top," explained the 33-year-old from nearby Brookfield, Ohio. "I wasn't sure if they (lapped cars) were going to hold him up or me up, but it was pretty fun out there. Doug (Kekich) told me I needed to run hard into turns three and four as that's where I lost the heat race and it killed me, but we're learning. I didn't think I'd get to do this (win) again this year. These things are tough to race, but the help I have is tremendous and it's cool to be back here. I want to thank everyone that helps, the fans, and everyone that puts this on."

After four cars tangled in turn one, Fraley would make the winning move from Priest when racing resumed on lap two. Sixth starting Myers and Priest raced side-by-side for runner-up on laps 2-4 with Priest maintaining runner-up. By lap five, Gale Ruth, Jr. and Ruhlman entered the fray making it a five-car race for the lead! On lap 10, Priest got too high and slapped the fence allowing Myers to steal second. Ruhlman then worked his way by Priest for third on lap 15. As Fraley was contending with lapped traffic, Ruhlman closed in and a three-car race for the win ensued over the final four laps.

Ruhlman nosed ahead of Myers for second on lap 18, but Myers didn't go away. It was three-wide for the lead in traffic on lap 19 as Myers regained second. Myers looked like he was setting up a slingshot move on Fraley racing off turn two on the final lap, but the lapped car of Kevin Kaserman was there slowing Myers' run. Fraley took the checkered flag first by just 0.133 seconds. Fraley's 10th career Sharon win, which includes eight in the Econo Mod division, came aboard his Barris Truck Service/Intense Fab/Pruskowski Trucking/Scoville Designs-sponsored #12.

Myers matched his career best Sharon RUSH Sprint Car effort from 2021 in second. Ruhlman was a close third after winning on Friday night at Lernerville Speedway. Priest dropped to fourth after leading the opening lap. Brian Hartzell went 18th to fifth! Ruth was sixth.

A.J. MacQuarrie crossed the finish in seventh, but took a nasty flip down the frontstretch after the red was out for Jarod Larson, who flipped in turn three. Larson, who started 24th, was battling with MacQuarrie for seventh when he got too high. Both drivers were banged up, but okay. Completing the top 10 were Brandon Blackshear, Zack Wilson, and Ricky Tucker, Jr. Heat winners were Myers, Ruth, and Wilson. The 24 cars on hand matched the highest count for the division was set on June 4.

Curt J. Bish continued his winning ways in the Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks. Bish, who is the division's only multi-time winner of the season, passed Steve D'Apolito on lap three and went on to record his third victory of 2022, which includes the $10,000 "Steel Valley Pro Stock Nationals" triumph.

"Early on the bottom was real good and the car stuck but I couldn't tell if I heard someone on the top before that last caution," explained the 38-year-old Cranberry, Pa. racer. "I probably should have picked the top right away. When we came around to take the green my guys were telling me top. I thought I might be in trouble so I got there as fast as I could. We were able to get up there and sail around the top the last few laps. Anytime you win it's a good feeling. There's a lot of competition and good drivers in this division. I have to thank the car owners Bob and Brian Tarr, my family, crew, all of my sponsors, the fans, and everyone that puts the work into this place."

D'Apolito led the opening two laps and had a fairly comfortable lead when Scott Malone brought out the caution. When racing resumed on lap three, Bish drove around D'Apolito for the winning pass. Paul Davis meanwhile passed Larry Kugel for third. Davis battled with D'Apolito lap after lap before finally making the pass stick for second on lap 15, while 10th starting Coleton Longwell followed past D'Apolito in third one lap later.

A flat tire for Davis ended his strong run with 16 laps completed and moved Longwell to second for the four-lap dash to finish. A left front flat tire was enough to keep Longwell from challenging Bish in the closing laps as Bish took the Bob Tarr-owned, Bernard's Electrical Service & Troubleshooting/R.K. Virgile Scrap Metals/Double E Landscaping & Fencing-sponsored #29 to his ninth career win 1.756 seconds.

Sixth starting Chris Schneider made his way to third at the finish. D'Apolito dropped to fourth over a rare appearance by Tyler Dietz. Completing the top 10 were Scott Stiffler, Jamie Duncan, Jamie Scharba, Malone, and Troy DeZarn. Heat victors were Dietz and Davis.

Ayden Cipriano drove around race-long leader Tony Tatgenhorst on lap 11 and went on for a popular first career Sharon win in the 20-lap HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modified feature. Cipriano became the sixth different winner in seven races this year and fourth driver to earn his first career win at the Hartford, Ohio oval!

"This was definitely a fun one and probably the most fun I've ever had here," expressed the 16-year-old Hermitage, Pa. racer. "I love running the outside everywhere we run, but normally it's stick to the bottom here. Tonight wasn't like that. I was able to do what I'm normally comfortable with and get the win tonight. It means a lot to get one here. I've always beat myself up about this place because we do good everywhere else besides here, but I think I'm finally getting into my groove and hopefully we win some more this year and next year. I have to thank all of my sponsors, parents, grandparents, Russ King for helping on the car- I couldn't do it without all of them."

After missing last Saturday night following a crash the week prior, Tatgenhorst charged around Dalton Gabriel into the early lead. Cipriano started fourth, took third from Brandon Ritchey on the opening lap, then used the top to pass Gabriel for second on lap two. While Tatgenhorst ran the middle and bottom, Cipriano was flying around the top and began to close in on the leader on lap six. After back-to-back caution-free features, a trio of cautions on laps 9-10 slowed action.

When green replaced yellow on lap 11, Cipriano using the momentum on the outside to get past Tatgenhorst for the lead and quickly began to pull away. Sixth starting Ben Easler passed Tatgenhorst for second on lap 15, but the 15-year-old was unable to get close enough to challenge the fellow teenager as Cipriano took the checkered flag first by 1.930 seconds in the William Cipriano-owned, Wheatland Steel Processing/Waterstone Mortgage of Hermitage/Black Viper Barber Shop/RKR/Colonial Metals/Fin & Bear It/Stainless Steel Engineering/JR's Garage-sponsored #5c.

Easler's runner-up coupled with Kole Holden failing to start the feature due to engine issues, allowed Easler to expand his lead in both the $3,500 to-win Hovis Weekly Series and $1,000 to-win Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series Championships. Tatgenhorst dropped to third after leading the first 10 circuits. J.C. Boyer, who won his first career feature on July 30, was fourth for the second straight week. After starting 14th, Rob Kristyak made his way to fifth. Rounding out the top 10 were Josh Deems, Ritchey, Kyle Martell, 13th starting Cole Edwards, and 15th starting Jacob Rutana. Capturing heat race wins over the 20-car field were Easler and Ritchey.

Coming up next Saturday night (August 20) will see the World of Outlaws CASE Construction Equipment Late Models return for the "Battle at the Border" paying $10,000 to-win, and will be joined by the Whelen Econo Mods. Tickets are on sale at https://sharonspeedway.simpletix.com/

Heath High Steps to Skagit Win

8/13/22

Alger, WA - Another intense race night at Skagit Speedway saw Colton Heath run to his second win of 2022 around the high side of the raceway in the Budweiser 360 Sprints. The support division main events were won by Graham Cook, Tanner Holm and Matt Sommerville.

Chase Goetz led from the drop of the green flag in the 360 main event, with Heath close in the early going before a lap five caution for third place running Greg Hamilton bunched the field. The final 25 laps of the main event would go non stop, with Goetz quickly getting into traffic and Heath right in step with him. Goetz would swap lines to clear slower cars, but Heath found the high side more to his liking and used it to close tight on Goetz. On lap 17, Goetz tried sliding through turns one and two to move past a lap car, and Colton rode around the top to pull right up to his rear bumper before ducking under Chase coming down the back stretch. Heath would power by to take the lead and return up to the top of the track thereafter. Heath would gradually expand his lead while Jesse Schlotfeldt made it past Chase with roughly five laps left and set to work trying to spoil the night for Colton. Jesse closed to within a car length or two in the final two laps, but the night belonged to Heath, with Schlotfeldt taking second and Goetz third. Heath also set fast time. Lane Sargent and Greg Hamiton won the heat races, while Goetz won the dash.

The Skagit Aggregates Modifieds saw Graham Cook take his first Skagit Speedway win of the year. Cook drove under Zane Miner for the lead on lap 12 and was unchallenged the rest of the way in running to the win. Rick Smith rallied from the back of the field after an early spin to finish second, while Ben Gunderson ran third. Miner was a heat race winner along with Brandon Nutter.

Tanner Holm went wire to wire for the win in the NW Focus Midgets for his first Skagit Speedway win. The Monroe, WA driver started on the pole and led all 25 laps with both Shane Smith and Jared Peterson lingering the whole way. Smith and Peterson would have to settle for second and third on the evening. Heat winners were Tristin Thomas, Matt Loving, Alden Ostrom and Nick Evans.

Matt Sommerville is a Skagit Speedway winner for the first time in the Hornets. Sommerville passed race leader Colin Sims in turn one on the final lap when Sims pushed high up the track, giving Sommerville the top spot and the win. While Sims came across the line in second, he ran into the back of Sommerville twice on the final lap and was docked two positions for rough driving at the line, giving second to Roger Burt and third to Brian Michelson. Sommerville and Sims were the heat winners.

Kory Schudy Crowned King of Kansas City at Valley Speedway with POWRi WAR
Belleville, IL. (8/13/22) Kory Schudy would use low-line precision through late-race dramatics to earn the throne as King of Kansas City with the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League at Valley Speedway to notch his ninth career league feature victory in thrilling fashion

Early on track accomplishments would witness Kory Schudy clock fast-time in hot laps with a 13.793-second-lap as Anthony Nicholson and Cody Baker would each earn a heat racing victory.

Soaring into the initial start would see the high-point qualifier and pole-sitting Cody Baker combat front-row companion Jack Wagner into the first pair of corners with Wagner gaining the early race lead in the first few laps as Baker, Kory Schudy, Wesley Smith, and Anthony Nicholson all battled in close contention for the front.

Slicing and dicing through the field with multiple lines of racing would witness Wagner leading until the mid-race point when Kory Schudy would use inside momentum to grab first as Jack would spin trying to retake the lead in turn one.

Holding the pack of hungry WAR drivers at bay, Kory Schudy would be the driver to beat as a late-developing high-line would nearly alter the outcome with Wesley Smith and Cody Baker each going to the top in hopes of finding speed.

“When your leading like that it’s almost like you are a sitting duck up-front, I didn’t know that the top would come in as it did. I didn’t hear Wesley up there until it was almost too late, I knew it was close, feels good to win fun races like that.” stated the newly crowned King of Kansas City Kory Schudy in the Valley Speedway victory lane.

Finding the fastest running line, Kory Schudy would hold the front of the field to notch his league-leading third win this season within POWRi WAR as Wesley Smith would wheel his way to very close runner-up placement by a .02-second margin with Xavier Doney placing in the final podium position.

Maintaining a solid showing all night pole-sitter Cody Baker would hold steady to finish fourth as Anthony Nicholson rounded out the top-five finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League feature event for King of Kansas City at Valley Speedway.

RICKEY SANDERS BECOMES LATEST FIRST TIME WINNER IN WATSONVILLE

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (August 12, 2022) – Watsonville’s Rickey Sanders continued his hunt for the 2022 Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo championship, scoring his first-career series win in the penultimate weekend of action for the 360 Sprint Car Series on Friday night. Sanders held off Bud Kaeding through lapped traffic on several occasions en route to the 30-lap triumph.

“Bud’s been racing for a ton of years. He’s won a million a races. He’s really good in lapped traffic. I’ve watched him and my brother (Justin) battle for years so this means a lot,” Sanders said. “My brother – we’ve been texting each other all week, trying to get better. I think we figured it out!”

Sanders earned the pole after winning the Gizdich Ranch Dash and lined up alongside fast-time qualifier Kaeding. The leaders rapidly encountered slower traffic by the fourth lap of the event. Cole Danell of Visalia slowed to the pits as the first car out and was awarded $100 by Geoffrey Strole’s team for his misfortune. Fresno’s Craig Stidham continued a challenging night by slowing into the infield with damage which earned him the Beer Optics Hard Luck award.

Wayne Katen spun in turn three while being lapped to bring out the first caution on lap seven. The leaders were quickly back into thick traffic on lap 12. Morgan Hill’s J.J. Ringo had a run outside of Joey Ancona of Concord for fifth but the duo collided on the backstretch, bringing out the yellow flag on lap 14 and ending both driver’s evenings.

Fifteenth starting Dylan Bloomfield of Discovery Bay outfoxed Livermore’s Travis Labat for fourth while Sanders and Kaeding again drove into traffic on lap 20. Sanders continued to impress as he paced the field. Brandon Stidham spun on lap 21 in turn four for a yellow flag. Bloomfield took advantage of the caution to charge past Gilroy’s Kurt Nelson to take third on lap 25.

Sanders slid in front of a lapped car on lap 28 to clinch a car length win over Kaeding, followed by Bloomfield, Nelson, and Oakdale’s Bradley Dillard. Bloomfield’s drive through the field earned him the Price Rite Hard Charger as well.

Blake Bower of Brentwood won his third consecutive Ocean Speedway Western Midget Racing feature in one of the most hotly contested in series history at the speedway. Fresno’s TJ Smith made his series debut in the No. 11 Triple-X chassis, winning his heat race and leading the feature from the pole.

Bower and his teammate Bryant Bell of Oakley battled side-by-side for third for several laps. Logan Mitchell of Santa Cruz stopped on the front stretch with a mechanical issue on the right rear for a caution on lap 11. On the restart, Nate Wait of Lodi and Peoria, Ariz.’s Cory Brown tangled in turn one.

Bower seized the lead on lap 15 but Smith was undeterred. Smith tried multiple times to cross over Bower in turns one and two, but Bower held on to win in the close battle. Bell finished third followed by multi-time Delta Speedway Micro Sprint champion Caden Sarale of Stockton, and heat race two winner Adam Teves of Concord.

Hobby Stock points leader Joe Gallaher won his ninth feature of the season by claiming the $333-to-win Terry Traub Tribute. Norm Ayers of Corralitos led the opening lap from the outside before Sam Kennedy drove up the inside to lead lap two. A caution flew on that lap. On the restart, fourth starting Gallaher drove into the lead around the outside.

Skyler Chairez of Atascadero slowed up in smoke for a caution on lap six. Kennedy drove back into the lead briefly on lap seven on the outside but Gallaher took it back on lap eight. Gallaher led the rest of the way to top Kennedy, Adriane Frost, Mark Cooper of Scotts Valley, and Wally Kennedy of Freedom.

Fred Lind of Prunedale used a lap 18 maneuver to win the 20-lap IMCA Modified feature. Trevor Fitz of Camarillo dominated the early laps. Lind won a long side-by-side battle with points leader Jim Pettit to take second on lap ten.

Andy Obertello of Hollister flipped in turn two to require a red flag on lap 13. He was uninjured. Lind dove inside Fitz on several occasions including nearly taking the lead on lap 15 in turn three. Lind finally completed the pass on lap 18 exiting turn four.

Bobby Hogge IV nabbed second over Fitz at the stripe with Pettit and Cody Burke of Salinas rounding out the top-five finishers.

IMCA Sport Modifieds points leader Jonathan Hagio of Prunedale won his fourth race of the season. Prunedale’s Max Baggett led the first two laps until Watsonville’s Billy Robertson executed a crossover pass in turn one to lead lap three.

Jacob Mallet, Jr. – a five-time winner this year – spun on the backstretch but kept going and the race remained green. Hagio advanced from seventh to third by lap ten, then the field moved into traffic by lap 12. Robertson, Merced’s Richard Ragsdale, and Hagio ran nose-to-tail until a caution on lap 15.

Mallet had charged all the way back to fifth under green flag conditions, then collided with Baggett to send Baggett spinning in turn two for the caution. Hagio drove around the outside of Ragsdale for second on the restart, then took the lead on the inside when Robertson drove wide in turn four on lap 14. Hagio topped Mallet, Robertson, Ragsdale, and Adriane Frost at the finish.

Ocean Speedway races again this Friday and Saturday nights with the Johnny Key Classic weekend. Saturday’s finale serves as the championship race for the Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo, battling with the stars of the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

Wagner Wins To Snap Three Year Winless Drought At Afton

Race Report by Steven Ovens – August 13th, 2022

(AFTON, NY) – Dalton Herrick may have said it best when he spoke to his crew members at the completion of the Super Gen Products CRSA Sprints 25-Lap A-Main at Afton Motorsports Park.

“We all wish we could have won that race, but nobody is said to see Dana finally get another win.”

Dana Wagner is the driver Herrick was referring to with those comments. One of the great drivers on tour that has struggled with bad luck, mechanical issues and crashes finally put everything together to go back to victory lane for the first time in three years.

Wagner had to utilize an incredible high-low switch to get the lead, showing that it was far from just plain luck to get his first win since Glen Ridge in July of 2019. A sweet and savory win not far from home for one of the local boys, originally from nearby Trout Creek, New York.

Kyle Pierce and James Layton led the nineteen-car field to the green flag for 25 laps around the Afton Fairgrounds bullring. Pierce snuck out to the early race lead with Wagner giving chase after getting by the Rookie in the No. 14 in Layton.

The man on the move early was Billy VanInwegen, who showed a ton of speed right off the trailer in the Van Dusen Racing No. 56. VanInwegen powered from seventh to the win in his heat race and would line up fifth after the Top 9 Redraw in the pit area.

Afton Motorsports Park track prep crews laid a thin layer of water down on the top lane just prior to the CRSA Sprints feature and the drivers worked it in for several laps before the green flag flew. VanInwegen took the first two to three laps to figure out just how deep into the corner he could sling his car. Once VanInwegen got into a rhythm, he quickly raced into a podium position and went to work on Pierce for the lead.

VanInwegen took the lead on the outside off Turn 2 and was officially scored the leader on Lap 10. The caution flew on that same lap as Thomas Radivoy detonated an engine and had an oil fire erupt in the infield on the Ator Construction No. 1Q. Another tough night for Radivoy earned him the Midstate Basement Authorities “Out of the Basement” Award.

Once the green was displayed again, VanInwegen pulled away while Wagner and Pierce duked it out for the runnerup position. Scott Landers from nearby Kirkwood, NY was putting on a clinic passing cars on the outside as well as Trevor Years who started shotgun on the field. Landers’ night would end on a sour note as he smacked the frontstretch wall and hurt his mount- drawing the yellow on Lap 13.

VanInwegen was on cruise on the next green flag run but something came apart on Lap 17, ending “Billy V”’s dominant run with mechanical woes. That handed the lead back to Pierce, with Wagner second, Layton maintaining a great run for third, point leader Jordan Hutton fourth and Dalton Herrick up into the Top 5.

The final right laps were incredible- if you missed seeing it in person you absolutely missed out. Pierce, Wagner and Hutton waged war for the lead with Wagner starting to find the top lane to his liking. Coming to five laps to go, Wagner sent it on the top lane to hit the moisture to go around Hutton for second place. Coming off Turn 4, Wagner got the tail tank of Pierce and dove down low for the lead to take the top spot coming off Turn 2.

Wagner would then run away for the remaining four laps to score his first victory in over three years and his second career A-Main win with CRSA.

“After I figured out the top side, Kyle kept leaving me an opening and I knew I had to go for it with however many laps to go we had there,” said a very happy and relieved Wagner.

“Once I got down in there I said to myself that this was either going to work or it wasn’t. I really wanted this one.”

Wagner had a big crew on hand and certainly had the support from the crowd as a they gave him a thunderous ovation during his climb to the top of the wing. His wave of the flag when he reached the top signified a slaying of the bad luck dragon that has reared its ugly head so many times over the last three years.

Pierce was facing his own struggles and credited Wagner with giving him enough space to race even though they were battling close for the lead into Turn 1. Pierce would end up finishing third at the checkered flag.

“I was really struggling out there. I made a bad call on gear and it was really hurting us to be able to run the bottom like I needed to,” noted Pierce post-race.

“Dana made a great move to get by me. It was close racing but he gave me room and didn’t just throw a nasty slider to go by. We gave it all we had with this new Panther car and we’re really starting to hit on something with it.”

Dalton Herrick was just inside the Top 5 during the final eight-lap sprint to the finish, but put on a clinic to make some moves and gain some valuable points heading into a track he traditionally runs well at- Thunder Mountain on August 20.

“Once we had the yellow flag, I could see how close I was to Jordan (Hutton) and knew that if I could make something happen up top I could gain some points on him. It’s been such a close points race, now is the time to make those moves to try and win this thing.”

Herrick was able to bring the Kiser Sand and Gravel ride home in second. Hutton was a bit disappointed with a fourth place finish but revealed a problem he was having, making him thankful to bring home a Top 5 and earn the Maguire Family of Dealerships “Magnificent Move of the Race”.

“My car was popping and banging all race long. We think maybe the Mag went bad because it felt like I was on four cylinders out there instead of eight,” said Hutton.

With the great battles being had up front, Emily VanInwegen quietly and swiftly raced her way into the Top 5 at the end to score her first finish in the first five positions of 2022.

Trevor Years passed thirteen cars to come from dead last to finish sixth and earn the Powdertech Powdercoating Hard Charger of the Race. Eagle Enterprises $25 Heat Wins went to Billy VanInwegen, Dana Wagner and James Layton.

The CRSA Sprints will now head to Thunder Mountain Speedway on Saturday August 20 before a highly anticipated return to Skyline Raceway Motorsports Park for the first time in ten years and only the second time in CRSA Sprints history.

The CRSA 305 Sprints are powered by Super Gen Products with their Champion Power Equipment located in Newark, NY.

Kyle Larson Cashes $21,000 in Non-Stop Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge!

Adam Gullion Wins IMCA Racesaver Feature

by Bill Wright

Oskaloosa, IA, Monday, August 8, 2022 – Kyle Larson roared to his third career win at the Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge Presented by the Rayce Rudeen Foundation and Country Builders Construction Monday night at the Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa. The Elk Grove, California native earned $21,000 for his win aboard the Paul Silva owned #57. Adam Gullion of Lincoln, Nebraska earned the $1,000 IMCA Racesaver main event.

Carson Macedo earned the pole by way of a foot race and shot out to an early lead in the 30-lap main event, ahead of Anthony Macri, Brian Brown, Gio Scelzi and Larson. Larson took fourth from Scelzi on lap two in a good duel, and then set his sights on Brown, passing him on lap five for third.

Macedo was lapping cars by the eighth circuit. Larson shot by Macri for second in turn three on lap 13, but the Pennsylvania native fought back and retook the spot. The lead trio had put well over a straightaway over their nearest competition at that point.

With ten laps to go, Larson seemed to hit another gear and shot by Macri, putting himself on Macedo’s bumper. On lap 22, he made his move to the point in heavy lapped traffic, and never looked back.

Macedo came home second, ahead of Macri, Brown and Daryn Pittman. Scelzi, Marcus Dumesny, Buddy Kofoid, hard-charger Austin McCarl and Parker Price-Miller. Macedo set quick time, and Scelzi, JJ Hickle and Price-Miller won heats. McCarl claimed the B. The eight highest point getters through qualifying and the heats locked into the foot races. Macedo emerged the victor in the two rounds, with Macri finishing second and earning a starting spot outside row two.

Mike Moore came from row two to lead the 15-lap IMCA Racesaver feature early on, ahead of Adam Gullion, Mike Houseman Jr. and Trevor Serbus. Serbus shot by Houseman into third on lap two.

Up front, Gullion got around Moore on the backstretch on lap three to take the lead. Serbus followed him into second two laps later. Gullion was into lapped traffic with five laps to go, and Serbus closed the gap. The eighth place car of Ryan Navritil came to a rest on the backstretch, bringing the only caution.

Gullion just pulled away in what turned out to be a three-lap Dash for the win. Serbus was second, ahead of Moore, Houseman and Matt Johnson. Jake Greenwood, Cole Vanderheiden, Gage Montgomery, Curtis Evans and Derek Kral completed the top ten. Gullion and Houseman were heat winners.

AJ FLICK NOW 3-FOR-3 AT SHARON AFTER THRILLING "410" SPRINT CAR WIN; WILL THOMAS DOUBLES UP IN STOCKS & ECONO MODS; BEN EASLER IS 1ST RUSH MOD REPEAT WINNER OF 2022 

 August 6, 2022

By Mike Leone

(Hartford, OH)… Sharon Speedway completed its 11th straight event during the 93rd anniversary season on a humid evening in Northeast Ohio on Saturday night. Celebrating in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane on the "Bill Kirila Memorial" were A.J. Flick- Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars, Will Thomas III-Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks & Whelen Econo Mods, and Ben Easler-HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. A total of 85 cars were in the pit area for the four-division "Super Series" event on Barris Supply and Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Night.

A.J. Flick has taken a liking to Sharon Speedway in 2022. Flick passed last week's winner, George Hobaugh, coming to the white flag to earn his third "410" Sprint Car win in as many starts at the track this season. Flick's 30-lap Hovis Auto & Truck Supply feature win was worth $3,000, and was his 11th overall "410" Sprint Car win of 2022!

"Three-for-three is pretty cool," expressed the 29-year-old Apollo, Pa. racer. "I tried to be as patient as I could, but every single time I hit the bottom and needed to get a run on him (Hobaugh) there was a lapped car there. It had to happen six, seven or eight times. I had him going into the bottom and then the 29 (Logan McCandless) was there. He wasn't taking up anyone's lane, he was just doing what he needed to do. It was just bad timing or whatever and that's how races play out sometimes. I think I was doing a good job on the bottom, keeping my momentum up, and the wing back. I showed George the bottom and he runs around here on the bottom. I was able to get him off my line in turns one and two, was able to hit it pretty hard one lap and was able to roll down the backstretch and get him in (turn) three."

"I almost junked a car in turn two a couple times the way we were racing," added Flick. "If we ever come here against the Outlaws or All Stars that's exactly what those guys are going to do so I needed to push my limits and see what kind of abilities I have and tonight it paid off for us. I have to give a shout-out to Sharon's officials. When this track has moisture in the top and bottom, it's the best race track in the area. Thank you to all you fans for coming out. When I woke up this morning I didn't think anyone was going to race within a 300-mile radius."

Flick started fifth and moved into fourth on the opening lap. Flick then grabbed third from Cody Bova on lap two and took over runner-up from Carl Bowser on lap 10. After some half-dozen attempts at overtaking Hobaugh throughout the rest of the event, Flick's winning move came on lap 29 to earn his fourth career Sharon win in his Ferguson Heating & Air Conditioning/Fence by Maintenance Service/Red Robin/Chernega Construction-sponsored #2.

After his $3,000 win the week before, Hobaugh earned $1,300 for second place. Bowser was third for $1,000 for the second straight week. Sodeman returned to Sharon for the first time since his only start of the season on June 4 and finished fourth after starting seventh. Brandon Matus was fifth. Completing the top 10 were Brandon Spithaler, Dan Kuriger from 11th, Vivian Jones, Darren Pifer, and Bob Felmlee from 15th as he received the $100 Summit Racing Equipment gift card for being the hard charger. Flick set fast time overall in qualifying with a lap of 14.846. Heat winners were Matus and Flick.

Will Thomas III doubled up winning both the Econo Mod feature as well as the Pro Stock main event! Thomas topped a season high 28-car field for his second Econo Mod victory worth $450 then jumped in his new Pro Stock and won the 20-lap $550 to-win Gibson Insurance Agency feature for his first career win in that division in just his third start! Both wins came in Hallman Originals/Colonial Metal Products-sponsored #9 cars.

In the 20-lap Whelen Econo Mod main, Thomas started fifth and made the winning move on Eric Wilson on lap six. Jeremy Double, who became the division's first repeat winner one week ago, passed Wilson for second on a restart on lap 19. Double though would have to settle for second as Thomas pulled away over the final two laps and took the checkered flag first by 1.474 seconds. Thomas has now won seven of the 10 Econo Mod features he's run over the past two years.

"I'm just hoping I have enough gas in me for the Stock Car race," joked the 46-year-old Sharpsville, Pa. ace. "We've been really fortunate in this car all season long, but have only run the Stock a couple times so hopefully we can string together a few good laps."

Wilson was third aboard Keith Felicetty's #98. Dennis Lunger, Jr. went seventh to fourth over Jacob Eucker. Gary Robinson was a season best sixth as Bryan Wagner, Garrett Calvert, Gary Olson, and Daniel Moffitt completed the top 10. Heat winners were Double, Thomas, and Eucker, while Robert Simmons copped the last chance B main.

Scott Stiffler led the first eight laps of the Pro Stock feature until sixth starting Thomas took over on the ninth circuit. Thomas would go unchallenged the rest of the way taking the win by 2.125 seconds over Stiffler, who was runner-up for the second straight week. The two victories on the night upped Thomas' all-time win total at Sharon to 27, which have come in four different divisions; RUSH Late Models (15), Econo Mods (7), UMP Mods (4), and now Pro Stocks (1). Thomas has also competed in the Big-Block Modified, RUSH Sportsman Modified, and Super Late Model divisions at Sharon without being victorious.

"This is a rare feat to win two and real special to do this at Sharon with my wife Tammy and son Willy here," stated Thomas. "I'm just really, really blessed to be surrounded by the people and family I have. I always says I'm blessed to live five minutes away from this place. I've been fortunate enough to do a lot of cool things in racing, but this ranks up there and it's pretty neat. I thought the Econo Mods were tough because of the inexperience, but this is war out there to be honest with you. I'm not used to a lot of contact like in these Stock Cars. Scott (Stiffler) was leading and I saw him getting tighter and tighter. It's not a secret the way I get around here is on the bottom and he kind of opened the door for me and I got by him."

Steve D'Apolito finished third over Paul Davis and eighth starting Jason Fosnaught, who was aboard Brett McDonald's #25. Pole-sitter Jonathan Davis dropped to sixth. Scott Malone was a season best seventh after starting 12th. Lernerville Speedway regulars Dale Tuche and Chase Lambert finished eighth and ninth. Jason Jones was 10th. Heat winners were Fosnaught and Perkins.

Second year RUSH Sportsman Modified racer Ben Easler continued his impressive season. After winning his first career Touring Series event and first ever at the track on June 18, Easler drove a flawless race through lapped traffic leading wire-to-wire in the caution-free 20-lap HTMA/Precise Racing Products feature. Easler's fourth overall victory in RUSH competition extended his points lead in both the $3,500 to-win Hovis Weekly Series and $1,000 to-win Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series Championships! The event's non-stop time was 6:40.099 more than 15 seconds faster than last week's caution-free event.

"It was getting stressful at the end with all that lapped traffic," revealed the 15-year-old Linesville, Pa. driver. "I just tried to stay calm, keep hitting my marks, and get through lapped traffic as smooth as possible. I'm just glad we were able to get it done again. I thought Garrett (Krummert) would be there, but I just tried not to think about it getting through lapped traffic and focus on the lapped cars. I kept watching the scoreboard to see the laps ticking down."

Easler became the division's first repeat winner of the season as he took the checkered flag first in the Jason Easler-owned, Crawford Custom Consulting/Titusville Ford/Pore's Bodywax/Espyville Heating & Air/Tanner Southern Auto Parts/Latta Bros. Racing/Russ King Racing/Smokin J's Country Corner Inn/Lakeside Lanes/Happy Hill Farms-sponsored #02 by just 0.678 seconds over Garrett Krummert. Fifth starting Josh Deems easily recorded his season's best effort on the circuit in third topping last week's seventh place run.

After winning his first career feature one week ago, JC Boyer had a solid fourth place after starting sixth. Justin Shea completed the top five from his eighth starting spot. Rounding out the top 10 were Kole Holden, Ayden Cipriano, Rob Kristyak, pole-sitter Jordan Ehrenberg, and a season best run for Dalton Gabriel. Heat victors over the 23-car field were Ehrenberg, Easler, and Krummert.

Coming up next Saturday night (August 13) will be a "Steel Valley Thunder" event featuring the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply UMP Modifieds for $1,000 to-win plus the Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars, Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, and HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds.

Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints      Vernon, New York -

Danny Varin knows his way around the Utica Rome Speedway. Varin used a great early race restart on the way to his fifth Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints win of the year and his second at Utica Rome. On a lap two restart, the Fonda, New York chauffeur split the front row cars of Kelly Hebing and Jordan Poirier and emerged out of turn two with a lead he would never lose. Current point leader Jordan Poirier kept Varin in his sights and slowly began to reel Varin back in until lap 12 when Steve Glover slowed in turn two to bring out the caution. Varin chose the bottom lane for the restart and it paid off as he pulled two car lengths on the field as they exited turn two. As Varin opened up to a half straightaway lead and Poirier comfortably in second, the battle was for third the rest of the way as five cars each took turns running third until the checkered flag flew. At the line, Varin won by ten car lengths over Quebec's Jordan Poirier with South Onondaga, New York pilot Shawn Donath rounding out the podium finish. Paulie Colagiovanni and Speedweek champ Davie Franek rounded out the top five.

Fast Times went to Varin, Josh Pieniazek and Donath while Varin, Franek and Colagiovanni captured heat wins. Sammy Reakes IV won the Dash.

Familiar faces grace victory lane at Placerville Speedway on Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…Mather’s Kalib Henry completed a daring move to snag the lead on the start and eventually held command for all 25-laps, claiming his third Thompson’s Winged Sprint Car victory of the year on Saturday.

Sharing the stage with Henry on Coors Light Big Trophy Night were Dan Jinkerson with the Mountain Democrat Limited Late Models, Nick Baldwin with the Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks and Ben Wiesz with the Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association.

Placerville’s Shane Hopkins and Oakley’s Dylan Bloomfield shared the front row in the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged Sprint Car feature. Henry lined-up on the inside of row two but immediately shot in front of Bloomfield, before driving past Hopkins heading down the backstretch. Henry led the field but when lapped traffic came into play it allowed Hopkins the chance to close in.

With 11-laps down things tightened up as Hopkins made a bid for the top-spot, only to have things come to a halt when Bloomfield got upside down to bring out a red. On the restart Henry motored away and all eyes became glued to the race for second between Hopkins and Sebastopol’s Joel Myers Jr. The duo exchanged the spot while navigating their way around the bullring, which had become tricky and treacherous up on the cushion.

Unfortunately for Hopkins his shot at victory came to an end when he suffered a flat tire late in the going and was forced to the work area. The final restart of the night with three laps remaining saw Myers stay within striking distance while giving it everything he had. Henry hit his marks upstairs however and flashed under the Ron Stahl checkered flag for the win. Henry’s seventh career Winged 360 triumph at the track came aboard the McColloch’s RV Repair & Storage No. 17 machine and tied him with Tim Clauson on the all-time list.

Myers came home second aboard the Dirt Dudes Excavating No. 46jr to cap off a solid run in the feature, followed by 11th starting Landon Brooks who also made headway in the 25-lapper at the helm of the Van Lare No. 5v entry. Hanford’s Michael Faccinto drove the F&F Racing X1 to another strong finish on Saturday ending up fourth, with Roseville’s Jodie Robinson completing the top-five in the Roseville Precision No. 4 Sprinter. The top-10 was filled out by Blake Carrick, 17th starting Michael Ing, Luke Hayes, Bubba Decaires and 18th starter Gauge Garcia.

Auburn’s Andy Forsberg earned the ADCO Driveline Fast Time Award to begin the night but encountered problems in the main event that left him with a 14th place finish in the feature. He continues to maintain a 24-point lead with two championship races remaining. A total of 27-cars competed on Saturday.

Winged Sprint Car finish: 1. 17-Kalib Henry[3]; 2. 46JR-Joel Myers Jr[6]; 3. 5V-Landon Brooks[11]; 4. X1-Michael Faccinto[7]; 5. 4-Jodie Robinson[9]; 6. 5H-Blake Carrick[10]; 7. 21M-Michael Ing[17]; 8. 9L-Luke Hayes[4]; 9. 94-Greg Decaires V[12]; 10. 21X-Gauge Garcia[18]; 11. 12J-John Clark[13]; 12. 21-Shane Hopkins[1]; 13. 20-Justin Bradway[15]; 14. 92-Andy Forsberg[5]; 15. 7C-Steven Tiner[8]; 16. 77-Ryan Lippincott[19]; 17. 93-Stephen Ingraham[14]; 18. 38-Colby Johnson[16]; 19. 83V-Dylan Bloomfield[2]; 20. 25-Justin Johnson[20]

The Mountain Democrat Limited Late Models provided several thrills during their 20-lap feature event on Saturday. Kiely Ricardo jumped into the early lead but felt pressure in the form of Dan Brown Jr. right off the bat. The pair battled hard for the top-spot as Ricardo ran down low while Brown abused the thick cushion up top. The outstanding fight for the lead saw Brown inch ahead with five laps down.

Soon after that Ricardo had to deal with a fast-moving Dan Jinkerson, who was manhandling the Lightfoot Automotive No. 23 around the quarter-mile. Once in second the current point leader began to rope in the leader and with just under 10 circuits remaining, the race was on. Jinkerson dove low looking for the top-spot with seven laps left, but Brown was able to fend off that challenge.

The action remained intense up front and with just a few laps remaining Jinkerson blasted to the inside to overtake the point. The “Diamond Springs Dynamite” drove off to claim his sixth win in seven Late Model events this season at Placerville Speedway. Brown earned another consistent finish in second, followed by Ricardo, Jay Norton and Rod Oliver. It marked Jinkerson’s 10th career Limited Late Model triumph at Placerville Speedway.

Ltd. Late Model finish: 1. 23-Dan Jinkerson[3]; 2. 15-Dan Brown Jr[2]; 3. 98-Kiely Ricardo[1]; 4. 15J-Jay Norton[5]; 5. 57-Rod Oliver[6]; 6. 23J-Tyler Lightfoot[7]; 7. 196-Joey Olschowka Jr[4]

Red Hawk Casino Pure Stock point leader Nick Baldwin continued to be the man to beat on Saturday at Coors Light Big Trophy Night. It didn’t come easy for the Oakley driver however, as Russ Murphy stayed right on his rear bumper for a majority of the 20-lap contest.

Behind the front duo things were hot and heavy between Kevin Jinkerson, Ryan Robinson and Wayne Trimble. The trio put a thrilling display of Stock Car racing and kept fans on the edge of their seats.

As the laps wound down Baldwin and Murphy had to deal with lapped traffic, but after dispatching of the slower cars they ran nose to tail right down to the wire. The closely contested race saw Baldwin fend off Murphy by a car length at the checkered flag to record his fifth win of the season. For the driver of the Blue Chip Muffler No. 17 it marked his 19th career triumph on the red clay. Murphy’s valiant run ended with a stout runner up finish, followed by Robinson, Trimble and Jinkerson in the top-five.

Pure Stock finish: 1. 17-Nick Baldwin[2]; 2. 74-Russell Murphy[1]; 3. 23-Ryan Robinson[3]; 4. 68E-Wayne Trimble[8]; 5. 30-Kevin Jinkerson[6]; 6. 87-Jason Poppert[5]; 7. 4-Jonny Walsh[11]; 8. 316-Ryan Murphy[7]; 9. 77T-Jason Armstrong[10]; 10. 1-Chris D'angelo[12]; 11. 47-Michael Murphy[4]; 12. 196-Micky Dangelo[13]; 13. 27-William Upton[14]; 14. 93-Mel Byers[9]

The season of Ben Wiesz also continued Saturday with the Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association. The Colfax driver navigated his way to a fifth win in five Dwarf Car events at Placerville Speedway in 2022. Shawn Whitney and a host of others kept him honest though during the 20-lap finale. Whitney tried his best to find a way by, but Wiesz was too smooth and calculated up front. He eventually crossed under the Ron Stahl checkered flag to keep up his dominance of the red clay.

Whitney ran second, followed by Mike Grenert, Dylan Shrum and Brenden Shrum in the top-five. The remainder of the top-10 was comprised of Jace Badecker, Dennis Gilcrease, Cody Shrum, Isaak Geil and Austin Struthers.

Dwarf Car finish: 1. 57N-Ben Wiesz[2]; 2. 15N-Shawn Whitney[5]; 3. 12N-Mike Grenert[6]; 4. 31N-Dylan Shrum[4]; 5. 50N-Brenden Shrum[7]; 6. 7N-Jace Badecker[13]; 7. 80N-Dennis Gilcrease[9]; 8. 69N-Cody Shrum[14]; 9. 42N-Isaak Geil[10]; 10. 59N-Austin Struthers[11]; 11. 94N-Denny Hannel[19]; 12. 43DD-Sean Catucci[15]; 13. 2N-Hailey Wiesz[16]; 14. 30N-Gene Herndon[18]; 15. 99N-Gage Meyers[1]; 16. 6N-Austin Quilty[3]; 17. 75-Toby Brown[8]; 18. 29N-Corey Eaton[12]; 19. 32N-Dan Geil[17]

Placerville Speedway returns to action next Saturday August 13th with Thompson’s Fan Appreciation Night. All grandstand tickets cost just $5 at the event.

 

 

Wayne County Speedway

ORRVILLE - By almost every measure, Saturday nights field of cars was the strongest and most stout of the 2022 season at the O’Reilly Auto Parts at Wayne County Speedway.

And the 3-8-mile oval was once again up to the task as well.

Chris Myers became just the second repeat winner this season in the Pine Tree Towing and Recovery Sprint Cars by leading every lap of the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association/Rick Susong Memorial headliner, while Ryan Markham stayed red-hot by besting a talented Malcuit Tavern Super Late Model contingent in picking up his sixth overall victory. Kyle Moore doubled up for the second week in a row by claiming both the McKenzie Concrete Super Stock and Elite Munitions Modified mains with Chaz Dawson becoming just the fourth JoyRide Mini Stock driver to visit the Summit Racing Victory Lane with his first win of the campaign.

Myers, who last won at WCS on May 28, inched closer to Henry Malcuit in the chase to the season championship by leading all 25 laps from his front-row starting slot. Myers held off Kory Crabtree, also a former winner at WCS, Tyler Street and Ricky Peterson, both feature winners at WCS in 2022, and western Pennsylvania-based youngster Leyton Wagner in fifth at the stripe.

Crabtree, second in the OVSCA point standings behind Bryan Nuckles, dogged Myers the entire race, eventually pulling to within a few car lengths in heavy traffic before a caution waved on lap 15. Myers once again set sail when the green replaced the yellow until lap 22 when Joe Adorjan left the ballpark by tumbling over the turn 2 guardrail. Adorjan was unscathed but was done for the evening while running in 15th before the crash.

Myers survived one last ditch effort on the restart from Crabtree, but held on as Street, Peterson, Wagner, and Malcuit diced it up behind the familiar Tony Popa-owned yellow 38K. Malcuit crossed the stripe sixth, with Skyler Gee, Andrew Palker, Jamie Myers, and Nuckles completing the top 10.

“We’ve struggled some recently, but this a tough place,” said Myers. “The track is so fast and if you can win here, you’re doing something. We hit the lapped cars just right as they stayed mostly on the bottom. Everything worked in our favor tonight.”

A scary incident took place in in the third heat, however, as Wyatt Zimmerman, who timed in third quick in qualifying, bicycled in turn 4 before his Shayne Mixon-owned 51 catapulted over the four-tiered guardrail exiting the turn and flipping into the catch fence. Following a few anxious moments, the WCS regular climbed from his battered machine shaken but uninjured. A delay of an hour followed as track crew members repaired the protective barriers.

Shane McLoughlin bolted to the early lead in the 25-lap Late Model main with Ryan Markham and Doug Drown, two of the top competitors in the speedway’s long history, in tow.

McLoughlin led until lap eight before Markham took the point on a restart with Drown following on lap 14. The duo raced nose-to-tail the remaining 11 circuits with Markham hanging on for his fourth WCS victory of the season. McLoughlin finished third with a hard-charging Brett Bee fourth from 10th, and Dave Hornikel riding home fifth. Parkersburg’s Tyler Carpenter stopped the clocks just short of Chris Madden’s track record in qualifying with a lap of 15.623.

“I’m not sure if a few of the guys had softer tires on than me, but it seemed it took me awhile to get going,” said Markham. “There was a lot of yellows, but my car got better as the race went on. The race track was awesome.”

The Modifieds hit the track next, and the 20-lap main event was worth the price of the admission. Allan Baker, Nathan Loney, Kyle Moore, and Colton Shaw occupied the first two rows on the start, with the foursome breaking away from the pack. Although Baker retired from the event early, Loney, Shaw, and Moore waged a torrid battle throughout with Loney leading the first eight laps.

The trio were side-by-side-by-side through lap 10, splitting lapped cars in the process. Moore finally took the lead on lap 10, but Shaw and Loney’s duel was just intensifying. Shaw eventually raced home in second, with Loney, who momentarily was off the pace on lap 13, rallied to finish a close third followed by Bud Watson and DJ Cline.

“Wow, that was just crazy,” said Moore in victory lane beside his TA Perrine 16. “This place has been so fast, and that was a battle out there tonight. I love racing for (TA) and we will keep racing this thing as long as he wants me in it.”

Moore immediately hopped into Bob Daughtery’s 21D Super Stock, retrofitted with a throwback 2000 paint scheme, and took aim on overall win number 14 of the season from his eighth starting spot. Moore took the lead on lap five from Rob Melzer and never looked back in outdistancing Paul Holmes, Melzer, Don Baney Jr, and Braden Tucke, who recovered from the tail after ducking into the Hutch Xtreme Photos work area on lap four.

“Again, this race track has been really fast, and there’s a lot of guys racing hard in this division,” said Moore. “We’re just on a roll in this thing and hopefully we can continue it.”

The Mini Stock finale was up next, and just like every feature race this season was the outcome wasn’t decided until the closing laps, or in Saturday night’s case, the final turn.

Kyle Petit took the early lead followed by Travis Hutton and Dawson. Early contenders Justin Cranmore and Jordan James both went to the Hutch Xtreme work area on lap five while running in the top five, as Dawson moved into second shortly after.

Dawson ran nose to tail with Petit the rest of the way, until taking the high side around turns 3 and 4 on the final lap to record his first win of the season. Petit, Hutton, Doug Hensel, and Anthony Collins, the only driver other than Hensel and Cranmore to record a victory in the series before Saturday, rounded out the top five.

“This is awesome,” Dawson said. “We have had such bad luck here that we decided to bounce around and run some other tracks, but we haven’t raced much at all in the last couple of years. I love 20 minutes from here, and to finally get a win at our hometown track is just all around special.”
WCS will be back in action on Saturday with another edition of the Fast Five series with the Danny Gardner Memorial for Super Stocks highlighting the program. The always popular Kids Night at the speedway is also on tap.

McMullen, Ritchie, Scholten, Schmidt add to
PDTR A-main triumph tallies

Inaugural Plymouth Racing
Wall of Fame Class of 2022 honored

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 6, 2022 – A fast, yet intricateracing surface drew the cream of the crop to the top as four distinguished Plymouth Dirt Track Racing veterans paid visits to victory lane in A-main competition, during the inaugural Plymouth Racing Wall of Fame Induction Night and Autograph Night program at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Aug. 6.

In the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasant View Realty 360 Sprint Car 360 Sprint Car A main, two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh went flag to flag to notch his first main event triumph of the 2022 campaign.

Justin Ritchie of New London claimed his second 25-lap PDTR Sheboygan’s Country B93.7 Late Model A-main victory of the 2022 season.

Current PDTR Grand National point leader Luke Scholten of Oostburg notched his second 2022 25-lap Oostburg Automotive A-main triumph.

Travis Schmidt of Waldo used a late-race pass to collect his second 25-lap PDTR Next Step Insurance B Mod A-main victory of 2022.

After starting on the outside of the front row, Brandon McMullen outpowered polesitter Tony Wondra of Campbellsport to lead the opening lap of the 25-lap 360 Sprint A main as third starter Tyler Brabant of Waupun ducked underneath Wondra to take second, followed by 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Plymouth, who started fifth, in third.

On lap 8, McMullen caught the rear of the field on the lightning fast and tricky third-mile clay oval track surface. Two laps later, Schmidt worked his way past Brabant to assume second in the running order.

The first of three caution periods appeared on lap 12 when Tyler Davis of Franklin spun in turn four. On the restart, Brabant got caught along the treacherous cushion and flipped his machine in turn two to bring out a red flag.

Following the restart, McMullen bolted away from the field with Schmidt chasing in second and fourth starter Brandon Berth of Cascade following in third. On lap 14, the third and final caution flag appeared when Doug Wondra of Oakfield bicycled on the cushion and came to a stop in turn two.

McMullen again controlled the final restart as defending PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion and current points leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan, who started 13th, moved into fifth on lap 19.

On lap 20, the leaders began to work their way through slower traffic, which allowed Schmidt to cut the gap on McMullen. However, McMullen held strong over the final five laps to fend off Schmidt’s advances in thick lapped traffic en route to his 25th career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory, which moved him into a tie for first place on the all-time main event win list with two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee.The race also marked McMullen’s 35th career Midwest Sprint Car Association main event victory, which ranks him third on the all-time MSA A-main victory list.

Schmidt had to settle for second, Berth placed third, 2008 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett placed fourth after starting seventh and Arenz wound up fifth.

Four-time PDTR Late Model champion Brad Mueller of Random Lake outdueled polesitter Turk Letizia of Milwaukee to lead the opening lap of the 25-lap Late Model main event.

On lap 2, fourth starter Taylor Scheffler of Waukesha used a low move to take over second before the first of six caution flags appeared on lap 3 after Letizia turned sideways in turn two to trigger a four-car pile-up.

On lap 9, Scheffler used the high groove to close the gap on the low-riding Mueller before the second caution was displayed when Jim Schmidt of Cleveland slowed in turn two on lap 11.

On the restart, Scheffler hounded Mueller for the lead, while Justin Ritchie, who started 12th, worked his way into third. After Mueller drifted high in turn two on lap 13, Scheffler pulled off a slide job to briefly sweep past Mueller and into the lead before spinning in turn four to bring out the third caution of the race.

When the race resumed, Mueller felt pressure from Ritchie, who worked the low groove, while Mueller moved up to the cushion, while four-time defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland, who started seventh, moved into third.

On lap 15, the fourth caution flag appeared when Charlie Schmidt of Oostburg spun in turn four before first-time Plymouth Dirt Track visitor Bobby Gash of Tinley Park, Ill. brought out the fifth caution period after spinning in turn four.

Ritchie flexed his muscle on the restart to duck underneath Mueller and into the lead in turn four on lap 17 just before Mueller exited the race with a rear-end failure, which gave second place to Justin Schmidt, who was racing with a broken left ankle suffered in an accident at The Plymouth Dirt Track on July 16.

After Turk Letizia brought out the sixth and final caution following a spin in turn two on lap 21, Ritchie held on over the final four laps to collect his sixth career PDTR Late Model A-main win.

Justin Schmidt placed second, PDTR Late Model rookie Bill Edler of Howards Grove, who started second, placed third, eighth starter Joe Bongiorno of Milwaukee finished fourth and Sawyer Specht of Sheboygan Falls, who started ninth, placed fifth.

In the 25-lap Grand National main event, 2019 PDTR Grand National champ Tyler Kulow of Plymouth, who started third, outpowered polesitter Steven Weber of Plymouth to lead the opening lap.

After the first of four caution flags was displayed on lap 7 when Vince Bartolotta of West Allis spun in turn three, Weber spun in turn two while running second to bring out the second caution flag of the race,

Following the restart, Scholten used the high line to power his way around Weber to take over the top spot in turn two. After Vince Bartolotta and Scott Kafka of Kiel spun in turn three to bring out the third caution, Scholten pulled away from Kulow to build up a full straightaway lead on lap 20.

The fourth and final caution appeared onlap 22 when 2010 PDTR Grand National champion Brian Gilles of Plymouth made contact with the turn two wall.

Following a single-file restart, Scholten bolted away to notch his 17th career PDTR Grand National A-main triumph. Weber worked his way past Kulow with a low move on the final lap to secure second. Kulow placed third, second starter Donny Kulow of Elkhart Lake finished fourth and Kafka rounded out the top five.

After an incident on the initial start involving Spencer Long of Sheboygan Falls, Andy Welter of Hartford and Jonathon Baumann of Sheboygan in turn one, polesitter Brian Konitzer of Sheboygan grabbed the lead on the opening lap with outside front row starter Shane Long of Sheboygan Falls trailing in second.

On lap 5, Tim Warner of Malone, who started sixth, steered Jonathan Hitsman’s 7H car to third just before Brandon Knepprath of Boltonville spun in turn four. On the restart, Warner used the high groove to power around Long into second before moving in to challenge Konitzer for the lead on lap 8.

After the caution flag appeared on lap 11 for debris in turn two, fourth starter Travis Schmidt, who started fourth, worked his way in third on lap 12. Three laps later, Shane Long of Sheboygan Falls spun on turn two to bring out the third caution of the race.

When the race resumed Schmidt and Warner waged a side-by-side duel before Schmidt surged into second and quickly closed in on Konitzer. On lap 19, Schmidt swept past Konitzer and into the top spot.

The fourth and final caution period came on lap 20, but Schmidt was not to be denied as he cruised over the final five laps on the way to his seventh career PDTR B Mod A-main victory.

Warner placed second, Konitzer finished third, Jonathon Baumann, who started 13th, placed fourth and current PDTR B Mod points leader Andy Welter, who started 11th, finished fifth.

2018 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Justin Miller of Plymouth won the 12-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car B main.

Must See Racing Engine Pro Sprint Car Series

SOUTH AMHERST, Ohio (Aug. 7, 2022) – Jason Blonde continued his habit of winning live-streamed Must See Racing Engine Pro Sprint Car Series races this season by topping the Jerry Caryer Memorial 40 at Lorain Raceway Park, held as the headliner of the inaugural Bob Frey Classic.

In front of a bevy of SPEED SPORT Network cameras, Blonde led 38 of the 40 laps at the three-eighths-mile paved oval and pulled away late from Ryan Litt, winning by 2.983 seconds in a race that finished in the early hours of Sunday morning due to several lengthy delays during the support division features.

Blonde’s victory was his second of the season with Must See Racing and the ninth of his series career, moving him into a tie with JoJo Helberg for third on the all-time list.

“That was fun, but it wasn’t easy,” Blonde noted. “Any time you’ve got Ryan Litt on your bumper, you’re going to be nervous. I actually didn’t feel that good about the car in the last five laps … and I was waiting for him to show me a nose or something, but I guess we still had a pretty big lead there. He said he was pretty tight, and I was tight (on corner entry), but just kept snapping it loose on exit and kind of dirt tracking it in the late laps.

“It wasn’t always pretty, but we’re glad we got the job done.”

Including lap money, Blonde collected nearly $4,500 in winnings for his Jerry Caryer Memorial victory.

The Litchfield, Mich., native was presented the winner’s trophy in victory lane by event namesake Bob Frey, a five-time winner of the Lucas Oil Little 500 for non-winged sprint cars and a four-time winner of the sprint car portion of the now-defunct Copper World Classic at Arizona’s Phoenix Raceway.

It was a moment the seven-time pavement sprint car champion called “really special” afterward.

“Bob Frey is someone who a lot of us looked up to through the years, and there’s a lot of history that he made with the cars he drove. To win a race honoring his career means a lot,” Blonde said. “There’s a lot of history in this team, though, also. Gary Fedewa has been bringing us to the track recently, and he won plenty of races for (owner) Tony Nosal in this car. It’s been cool to have Gary back at the track with us.

“Just a lot of people go into this team and into this sport … and we’ve got to all be thankful for that.”

Starting from the pole after an eight-car inversion, home-state driver Rick Holley led the field to green and paced the first two circuits, collecting $175 in lap money and a case of Pabst Blue Ribbon from fellow driver Joe Liguori for leading the opening lap – given in honor of late competitor Jerry Caryer.

Holley was holding Blonde at bay until a shocking crash off the second corner changed the entire complexion of both the race and the Must See Racing championship points battle.

Contact between incoming point leader Charlie Schultz and two-time defending Little 500 champion Tyler Roahrig, who was filling in for the injured Jimmy McCune in the familiar No. 88 sprinter, sent Schultz spinning off the second corner and ended the night for both veteran competitors.

Schultz tossed his steering wheel out of the car in frustration when he came to a halt before walking off to his trailer, his hopes of a maiden series title taking a major hit in the process with just one race remaining.

From there, Blonde took control of the race on the lap-three restart, surging into command from the outside of the front row and never looking back despite a mid-race duel through lap traffic with Ryan Litt.

Blonde weathered a restart with 16 laps left, following a turn-one spin by Jacob Dolinar, and went on to the comfortable victory over Litt. The Canadian settled for second one week after snapping a nine-year Must See Racing winless drought at Michigan’s Berlin Raceway.

“This was my first time here, so I had to learn everything as I went today,” explained Litt. “It’s a unique track and I like it, but we were just super tight in the feature and didn’t have much for Blonde there.”

Holley fended off a late challenge by Liguori to finish third, the best night of his Must See Racing career.

“The car was really good, and the scary thing is, we know it can be better,” tipped Holley. “These are the kind of nights we’ve been working for, and it feels good to finally put it all together like we did here.”

Liguori’s fourth-place finish allowed him to assume the point lead with only the season finale at Pennsylvania’s Jennerstown Speedway remaining. Todd McQuillen closed out the top five.

Cody Gallogly won the accompanying Must See Racing Midwest Lights crate sprint car feature in commanding fashion, beating runner-up J.J. Henes by more than seven seconds.

Must See Racing competitors will now have a two-week break to recharge before heading to Jennerstown for the David D. Mateer Tribute at the half-mile Keystone State oval.

Ladies Night Wins to Starks, Johnson, Holtrop

8/6/22

Alger, WA - Ladies night at Skagit Speedway saw two familiar faces in victory lane and one newcomer. Trey Starks continued his dominance of the Budweiser 360 division while Adam Holtrop continued his in the Hornets. Allison Johnson was the new winner, grabbing her first career win on a night where Skagit Speedway honored women in motorsports.

Starks started outside row one, and like many weeks before, shot out to an early race lead that was never in question. He would continuously carve through lapped traffic en route to another feature win, leading all 30 laps in the process. The race behind him for second raged through traffic with Greg Hamilton coming out on top of Jason Solwold. Starks also set fast time. Hamilton was also the dash winner. Solwold won one of the three heat races, along with Luke Didiuk and Jesse Schlotfeldt.

Adam Holtrop now has five wins in six tries on the season in the Hornet class. Driving “The Mighty Miata”, Holtrop passed Howard Vos on lap 10 for the lead and eventual win. The race was on for second, with Mike Guffey being the first Hornet Truck to make a podium appearance by taking second over Brian Michelson. James Anderson and Colin Sims won the heat races.

Last but certainly not least was the Sportsman Sprints where on Ladies Night, Allison Johnson became just the second woman in the class history to take a feature win. Allison led every lap of the feature that was marred by caution flags and red flags, but she survived and thrived through every restart to get her first career win. Jesson Jacobson and Cory Swatzina took second and third. Axel Oudman was the fast qualifier. Kai Dixon, Swatzina and Steve Parker won heats.

Ty Williams Crowned Fifth Annual Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals Champion!

Lonnie Wheatley, BELLEVILLE, Kan. (August 6, 2022) – Arcadia, Oklahoma’s Ty Williams added another feather to his cap by taking the $7,000 winner’s share in Saturday night’s Fifth Annual Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals 30-lap finale atop the ½-mile Belleville High Banks clay oval.

It wasn’t without some twists and turns along the way before Williams ultimately made what proved to be the race-winning pass in the final pair of corners of the United Rebel Sprint Series event and learned of the victory post-race when apparent winner Steven Richardson fell light at the scales.

While much of the way it looked as if Luke Cranston was destined for a second consecutive Belleville 305 Nationals title, Richardson rallied through the field after an opening lap incident and took command on the final circuit in turns one and two.

Williams followed suit and slipped by Cranston as well in the next pair of corners to chase Richardson across the stripe.

But Richardson’s thrilling charge through the field proved to be all for naught when he rolled across the scales 30 pounds below the minimum weight of 1,550 pounds, handing the win over to Williams aboard the Steve Hilker Trucking/Cattletrucks.com No. 911.

After starting from the pole position, Williams spent the duration of the race pursuing fellow front row starter Cranston and closed in on several occasions as the lead duo blazed a trail on the upper portion of the high-speed oval.

“I felt like we were about equal and I might have a shot at him (Cranston), I had already decided that I was going to the low side on the last lap to see if I could get by,” Williams explained afterward. “But Steven (Richardson) found the rubber down there first and got by before I moved down.”

Originally of the belief that he was settling for runner-up honors after following Richardson past Cranston, moments later Williams learned that he was adding the Belleville title to a 305 Nationals win at Missouri’s I-70 Motorsports Park in May.

“It’s not the way I want to win for sure,” Williams explained. “But that’s the way it goes, that’s what the rules say.”

After gunning into the lead at the outset and leading all the way to the white flag, Cranston settled for runner-up honors. “Those guys just found the rubber down there, I didn’t realize it had come in that strong,” the Ness City shoe commented. “I hate it for Steven (Richardson), that’s a tough way to lose this race.”

Salina’s Jon Freeman filled out the podium in third with Texas representative Chase Brewer crossing the stripe fourth while Zach Blurton earned Hard Charger honors by racing from 18th to round out the top five. Much of Blurton’s charge happened early as he made his way to eighth in the opening handful of laps and then battled his way to an ultimate top-five finish.

Chad Koch crossed the stripe sixth with 20th-starter Landon Thompson, Brett Becker, Jordan Knight and Jed Werner completing the top ten. Friday night preliminary winner John Carney II stayed near his seventh starting position throughout until he slowed on the final lap with a cut tire and coasted across the line in 15th as the final car on the lead lap.

The feature got off to a tumultuous start as six cars tangled in the opening corner including Richardson, Todd Plemons, Tyler Drueke, Thompson, Brandon Bosma and Gunnar Pike. Plemons and Drueke were done for the night while Richardson tagged the field and began his dramatic charge, cracking the top ten by the tenth round and making his way to fourth by the time a final caution flew with three laps remaining when Bosma slowed on the track.

Working the bottom of the track, Richardson worked forward and into the lead after the white flag only to run afoul of the scales.

Freeman established the quickest overall qualifying lap of 16.874 seconds with Stu Snyder, Williams, Brewer and Jack Potter topping heat race action before Drueke and Blurton won the twin “B” Mains.

Michael Pickens Perfects I-55 Finale with Xtreme/POWRi National Midget League

Belleville, IL. (8/6/22) Michael Pickens would use a high-side hustle on the final corner to capture victory Saturday night at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55, in support of the Ironman 55 with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget Leagues running in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota, wrapping up the weekend in thrilling fashion to claim his eleventh career POWRi National Midget feature win.

Early Pevely competition with thirty-two Xtreme/POWRi National Midgets entered would see Michael Pickens start the fastest for a second-straight night with a 12.770-second lap and notch the quickest group qualifying time as Brenham Crouch, Karter Sarff, Cade Lewis, and Chase McDermand each earning heat racing victories as Bryant Wiedeman would earn the semi-feature honors.

Setting the field of stout competitors would find high point qualifier Chase McDermand draw an inversion of zero to set the feature lineup with McDermand and Michael Pickens on the front row as Pickens would use high-side momentum to take the early racing lead with McDermand, Jacob Denney, Kyle Jones, and Brenham Crouch inside the top-five running order.

Battling to take the top spot on lap five, Chase McDermand would mount a charge to the front of the field by using an inside shot to lead the pack of competitors. Stretching out a commanding lead, McDermand would appear to cruise around the mid-way point with teammate Denney holding Michael Pickens and Kyle Jones at bay.

Bunching the field back together with a lap eighteen caution, Jacob Denney would use the restart to perfection by grabbing the lead on a low-line maneuver with Pickens and Jones following closely behind with McDermand slightly slipping.

Late-race dramatics would appear restarting with three laps remaining with Jacob Denney setting the pace. Michael Pickens would cling to a fast high-side to propel to the point of the pack off the final pair of corners to earn his first win of 2022.

“We made a ton of ground on this super tricky track late, a massive thanks to Dave Mac Dalby this weekend for this awesome car as we got it done tonight. I’ve heard so many cool stories about this place and it makes it even cooler, sitting on that fifteen-hour flight is going to be a lot easier now” stated Michael Pickens in the Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely Winner’s Circle on Night Two.

Leading late, Jacob Denney would maintain a solid showing to finish runner-up as Zach Daum flew through the field late to complete the features podium placements.

Mintz has heavy foot in Fremont 410s; Weaver dominates 305s; Babcock earns 2nd truck win

Saturday, Aug. 6, 2022

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Craig Mintz literally had a heavy right foot Saturday, Aug. 6 at Fremont Speedway. The Gibsonburg, Ohio driver, a three time track champion, broke his foot earlier in the week and didn’t even know if he could race this weekend. But race he did, taking the lead from Chris Andrews with just four laps to go and driving to his second consecutive 410 sprint win at “The Track That Action Built” on Kear’s Speed Shop Night.

“We didn’t even know if we were going to be able to race tonight. My guys busted their tails to get me comfortable in the car. Chris (Hartsel) has made some big changes to this car….stuff I have never done and it’s working. Rich (Witte), my dad and everyone have never given up. My wife and kids were finally here to see us get a win tonight. I’ll tell you racing with Chris Andrews was fun. It just shows everyone you can race each other hard and you don’t have to tear up each other’s stuff,” said Mintz beside his Real Geese Decoys, Modern Woodmen of America, KS Sales & Service, Design Graphics Group, Wonderly Carpet Care backed #09.

It was the 16th career win at Fremont for Mintz and it gets him closer to Cole Macedo in the track’s point standings for the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints.

Fremont’s Paul Weaver put on a dominating performance in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints. He led all 25 laps and only a couple of cautions would slow his march to his fourth win of the season at Fremont. Weaver now has 68 career wins at the track, placing him third on the all-time win list.

“I saw Tyler (Shullick) on the bottom so I thought I’d go down there and then I saw Sebetto (Bryan) up top where he normally runs and I tried that. I made the car wide enough to keep the lead on those restarts,” said Weaver beside his Steve Brown’s B&B Drain Service, M&L Excavating, Hampshire Racing Engines backed #31.

Cygnet, Ohio’s Jeff Babcock survived a caution-filled Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck A-main to score his second consecutive win, the third of his career at the track. It wasn’t easy as Babcock battled with Jamie Miller through the first 13 laps which had nine cautions. In fact Miller led a couple of laps as the pair raced side by side, lap after lap. Mechanical issues forced Miller out of the race with two laps to go and Babcock drove to the win.

“That was a terrible race we all put on tonight. I’m just glad the fans can stick around for the rest of the show. My guys had the truck performing great,” said Babcock beside his Roelle Racing #25.

In the 30-lap 410 sprint feature, Andrews jumped into the early lead while Mintz battled with Zeth Sabo for second. Just as Andrews was set to get into heavy lapped traffic the caution flew on lap 11 as Mintz was closing. Andrews pulled away slightly until 10 laps to go when Mintz reeled in the leader. Another caution with seven laps to go once again kept Andrews out of heavy traffic, but a bobble on the high side of turn two with four laps to go opened the door for Mintz to grab the lead. Mintz drove to the win over Sabo, Nate Dussel, Andrews and Macedo.

Weaver grabbed the lead at the drop of the green for the 25 lap 305 sprint feature while Jimmy McGrath, Bryan Sebetto, Kasey Jedrzejek and Jamie Miller gave chase. A caution for Jedrzejek on lap six whipped out a nearly three second advantage for Weaver. On the restart Sebetto took second with McGrath and a charging Tyler Shullick in pursuit. Shullick grabbed second on lap nine but a caution three laps later allowed Sebetto to regain the runner-up spot on the restart.

Weaver’s lead was nearly four seconds as he drove into lapped traffic with six circuits to go. A final caution on lap 20 allowed Shullick to retake second but he had nothing for Weaver as he drove away to the win. Shullick, Sebetto, Zeth Sabo and Miller rounded out the top five.

Because of all the yellow flags, the dirt truck feature was shortened to 15 laps. After Miller retired with mechanical issues with two laps to go, the side by side racing he and Babcock put on throughout was over and Babcock drove to the win over Shawn Valenti, Dustin Keegan, Kent Brewer and 16th starter Dave Gumby Jr.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, Aug. 13 with the Ti22 Performance FAST on Dirt Sprints, the MPD Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS, non-wing sprints) and dirt trucks will be in action.

Hansen, Dryden, Bailey, and Rutherford Win On Renway Energy Night at Ohsweken
 

Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars
Cory Turner and Nick Sheridan started on the front row to begin the 20 lap 360 Sprint Car A-Main. Sheridan gained a huge lead in the first few laps as the pole sitter while Cory Turner began to be consumed by the pack. Josh Hansen, Sheridan’s rival in recent weeks, caught up and passed Sheridan for the lead. Things got really exciting when a caution came out with ten laps left to go, allowing Sheridan to try to regain the lead from Hansen. Fans had their eyes on these two for the restart, as these drivers have history together; this time however, Hansen was able to hold off Sheridan without incident. Three more cautions ensued within six laps, leaving only four more laps of green flag racing. No one was able to compete with Hansen on the restarts as he cruised his way to his second career victory at Ohsweken Speedway. The win was especially sweet for Hansen after a blown engine last week. Mitch Brown got around Sheridan on the last lap and scored a second place finish, leaving Sheridan to take third. Rounding out the top five were Jim Huppenen and Jake Brown in fourth and fifth respectively. Cory Turner’s eighth place finish allowed him to still retain as the division points leader by five points over his brother Ryan.

Strickland’s Crate Sprint Cars
Eric Gledhill and Ashton VanEvery brought the 28 car field to the green flag for the 20 lap Crate Sprint Car A-Main. Gledhill was penalized for jumping the start, allowing Darren Dryden to restart as the polesitter. Dryden had a perfect restart and quickly put a significant gap between himself and second place. By lap five, Dryden had to begun to navigatetraffic while maintaining race pace. The second caution of the night allowed the rest of the field to catch up and try to challenge Dryden for the lead, but to no avail; Dryden was able to hold off the pack for three more restarts before he saw the checkered flag and picked up his fourth win of the season. Finishing in second was Brett Stratford, while Steve Murdock finished third, Lucas Smith fourth, and Gledhill fifth. Smith’s top five finish allowed him to retain the points lead in the division with 23 points over second place Gledhill.

Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks
Gofast Teeple started on pole with Kyle Andress next to him for the 20 lap Thunder Stock A-Main. A caution came out on the first lap as several cars got tangled up on turn three, however all the drivers were able to carry on. Points leader Dave Bailey navigated around the wreck, gaining precious positions early in the race. Logan Shwedyk quickly gobbled up Teeple’s lead on the restart and opened a commanding lead over the field. Shwedyk’s lead was short-lived though, as Bailey challenged and overtook him for first with twelve laps left go. The other title contender, Ryan Beagle, could be found lurking through the pack making his way to third by lap ten. Lap eleven saw a caution for debris on the track, allowing Beagle to gain track position for the restart. Once again the two main title contenders were racing neck-and-neck, much to the enjoyment of the fans. With Mark Fawcett still searching for his first Ohsweken win, he began to close on the leaders with five laps left go, making it a three-way battle for the win. An untimely late caution came out, setting up an epic green-white-checkered finish. Bailey proved once again why he is the current points leader after he held off Beagle and Fawcett for his sixth win of the season. Crossing the finishing line next was Beagle in second, Fawcett third, Trevor DoBoer fourth, and Christopher Hale in fifth. Bailey remains the points leader over Beagle by 41 points.

HRW Automotive Mini Stocks
The front row of the grid featured Paul Longboat and Mike Evers to begin the 15 lap Mini Stock A-Main. Jason Tolton had a great start as he gained the lead within the first few laps after starting sixth. However a caution came out on lap four which allowed Rodney Rutherford to assume the lead after the restart. Points leader Tyler Lafantaisie made his way up to second place after starting 18th due to the weekly handicapping system. Lafantaisie was not close enough to make a run at first place as he had a formidable Wayde Thorne right behind him, allowing Rutherford to maintain a commanding lead. The final caution came out with two laps to go, but Rutherford denied Lafantaisie the victory. Rutherford picked up the win and the $1,000 grand prize, leaving Lafantaisie finishing in second, Thorne third, Nick Erskine fourth, and Dusty DeBoer fifth. Lafantaisie left the night comfortably as the points leader over Fabio Olivieri by 117 points.

DJ Netto, Bobby Hogge IV, Jacob Mallet Jr., Terry Campion and Danny Wagner claim Hall of Fame Night features at Ocean Speedway

By Gary Thomas

Watsonville, CA…Hanford’s DJ Netto has been gaining steam with the season wearing on and last night put together dominating performance for his second Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo win of the season.

Sharing victory lane during Hall of Fame Night were Bobby Hogge IV with the IMCA Modifieds, Jacob Mallet Jr. with the IMCA Sport Mods, Terry Campion with the Hobby Stocks and Danny Wagner with the South Bay Dwarf Cars.

Netto jumped into the lead at the waving of the green flag in the feature after earning the pole, by way of his win in the six-lap Dash earlier. The initial nine laps clicked off fast and furious following some track work just before the 30-lap contest. Ocean Sprints point leader Kurt Nelson then slowed to a stop in turn two, which drew the caution flag and set up a double file restart. Once getting back underway a long green flag was seen and during it Netto pulled away from the field with ease.

The 2019 NARC champion worked traffic to perfection, at one point having the comfort of six lapped cars between himself and second running Bud Kaeding. A yellow flag on lap 24 brought the party to a stop, but after that things began to heat up. When Ed Entz waved the green flag again fifth running Kaleb Montgomery made a wild move down low passing three cars to move up to second. He and Kaeding proceeded to battle back and forth in a thrilling duel before Montgomery solidified the spot prior to a caution with three circuits left.

Netto hit his marks on the final restart and drove off to accept the checkered flag aboard his Netto Ag/ Mission Foods No. 88n machine. Montgomery crossed the stripe in second to cap a solid night during his second start with the Keller Motorsports team. Kaeding, JJ Ringo and Jake Andreotti completed the top-five. Both Ringo and Andreotti raced close together for virtually the entire contest. Rounding out the top-10 in the feature were Mitchell Faccinto, Dylan Bloomfield, Rickey Sanders, Joey Ancona and Travis Labat.

Ocean Sprints finish: 1. 88N-DJ Netto[1]; 2. 2K-Kaleb Montgomery[8]; 3. 69-Bud Kaeding[2]; 4. 3T-JJ Ringo[5]; 5. 7P-Jake Andreotti[4]; 6. 21-Mitchell Faccinto[6]; 7. 83V-Dylan Bloomfield[7]; 8. 17-Rickey Sanders[3]; 9. 88A-Joey Ancona[10]; 10. 61-Travis Labat[12]; 11. 98-Michael Pombo[11]; 12. 72S-Bradley Dillard[16]; 13. 36-Craig Stidham[19]; 14. 5-Mark Chaves Jr[9]; 15. 72JR-Chris Nelson[13]; 16. 88-Koen Shaw[18]; 17. 87-Ashlyn Rodriguez[21]; 18. 25Z-Jason Chisum[17]; 19. 99-Wayne Katen[22]; 20. 21X-Gauge Garcia[14]; 21. 50-Bryce Eames[20]; 22. 72W-Kurt Nelson[15]

On a night when we honored Bobby Hogge III and Al Balding Sr. it was only fitting that their sons ran first and second in the IMCA Modified finale. Early on it was Andy Obertello who set the pace out front, but he soon had to deal with pressure from Hogge. On lap eight the duo went side by side only to have a caution slow the pace. On the restart Hogge shot to the lead but was deemed to have jumped, which docked him two positions for the ensuing attempt.

Hogge did not let that deter him however, as the multi-time Ocean Speedway champion moved back to second shortly after and then blasted to the lead on lap 14. At that point Tim Balding was putting on an exhilarating charge from the 13th starting spot. A green, white, checkered restart would settle things and during it Balding tucked right up to the inside of the leader, but Hogge was able to hang tough and accept the Ed Entz checkered flag for yet another Watsonville triumph.

Balding came home with an impressive runner up finish followed by Obertello, Cody Burke and Jim Pettit II. It marked the fourth Ocean Speedway win of the year for Hogge.

IMCA Modified finish: 1. 2-Bobby Hogge IV[8]; 2. 1B-Tim Balding[13]; 3. 29-Andy Obertello[2]; 4. 20-Cody Burke[7]; 5. 6-Jim Pettit II[6]; 6. 14-Matthew Hagio[3]; 7. 3-Todd Hermosillo[11]; 8. 22G-Paul Guglielmoni[12]; 9. 77-Fred Lind[1]; 10. 01-Raymond Keldsen Jr[4]; 11. 28-Trevor Fitz[9]; 12. 84X-JC Elrod[5]; 13. 89-Freddie Ploudre[10]

The 20-lap IMCA Sport Mod main event saw Billy Robertson lead early, before Jacob Mallet Jr. dispatched of him to take over the top-spot shortly after. The driver known as “J-Money” continued his recent dominance of the quarter mile to dominate the remainder for his fifth victory of the 2022 campaign. Point leader Jonathan Hagio came home in second, followed by Richard Ragsdale, Adriane Frost and Robertson.

IMCA Sport Mod finish: 1. 127-Jacob Mallet Jr[8]; 2. 46-Jonathan Hagio[5]; 3. 82M-Richard Ragsdale[4]; 4. 22-Adriane Frost[6]; 5. 5-Billy Robertson[3]; 6. 3G-Chuck Golden[7]; 7. 42B-Max Baggett[2]; 8. 89-Duane Bieser[10]; 9. 22W-Charlie Hunter[9]; 10. 27S-Dwayne Short[1]

The Hobby Stocks put on a wild back and forth affair during Hall of Fame Night on Friday. Veteran Wally Kennedy carved his way to the early lead but had intense pressure in the form of Terry Campion after a few laps. Campion eventually charged his way past Kennedy to snag the lead on lap eight and brought along a very fast Joe Willoughby. The fight for the top spot was a good one and on lap 12 Willoughby jumped ahead of Campion to snag the point.

At this moment all eyes were on current point leader Joe Gallaher who was on the move after restarting from the rear of the pack earlier. Gallaher picked off cars one by one and challenged for the lead until Willoughby slowed with issues just four laps shy of the finish. Gallaher looked to be headed for a ninth win on the season however, slowed with a flat tire in the final corners, which allowed Campion the chance to pounce for the victory.

Dakota Keldsen, Norm Ayers and Brady Muller rounded out the top-five.

Hobby Stock finish: 1. 83-Terry Campion[5]; 2. 9-Wally Kennedy[2]; 3. 3-Dakota Keldsen[11]; 4. 51-Norm Ayers[1]; 5. 73B-Brady Muller[7]; 6. 1-Joe Gallaher[6]; 7. 3OG-Dan Fassler[8]; 8. 196-Joe Willoughby[3]; 9. 55F-Shane Freeman[10]; 10. 36-Nate Teramo[9]; 11. 51X-Xavier Baez[4]; 12. (DNS) X-Bobby Gallaher; 13. (DNS) 283-Lenard Stanfill

The South Bay Dwarf Cars put on the race of the night as Danny Wagner and Shawn Jones thrilled the crowd on hand. Unofficially the lead at the line changed hands a total of six times between the talented pair. Jones led the opening circuit until Wagner took command on lap three. The duo raced side by side for darn near 15 consecutive laps. Jones took back the lead at the line on lap eight, before Wagner led lap 11.

Two laps later Jones held command at the line, but Wagner blasted back by to lead lap 14. After this Wagner pulled away over the final stages to pick up another Ocean Speedway victory this season. Jones, Eric Weisler, Mark Biscardi and Ricardo Rivera completed the top -five.

Dwarf Car finish: 1. 11D-Danny Wagner[2]; 2. 26B-Shawn Jones[1]; 3. 64B-Eric Weisler[3]; 4. 66B-Mark Biscardi[4]; 5. 45-Ricardo Rivera[8]; 6. 88B-Travis Day[6]; 7. 69-Eddy Claessen[7]; 8. 10B-Barry Waddell[10]; 9. 16R-Chad Matthias[5]; 10. 26N-Dan Zuger[9]

 

 

Carney Collects Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals Preliminary Win!

Lonnie Wheatley, BELLEVILLE, Kan. (August 5, 2022) – John Carney II etched his name into the history books as a feature winner atop the storied ½-mile Belleville High Banks clay oval by topping Friday night’s 20-lap Fifth Annual Belleville Fifth Annual Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals preliminary feature.

Carney swept into the lead on the high-side of the track on the 12th round and kept the dicing trio of Luke Cranston, Zach Blurton and Steven Richardson at bay the rest of the way to snare the $2,500 winner’s share aboard the Coyote Candle Company No. 74b Sprint Car.

Carney was holding down the third position on a lap ten restart precipitated by a red flag for Boyd Peterson’s ride along and then up-and-over the turn three and four guardrail.

Carney made quick work of the lead duo as action resumed and went on to secure the United Rebel Sprint Series-sanctioned win.

“We didn’t make any adjustments under the red flag,” Carney explained afterward. “I felt like we were just starting to get really good right before the red. The track really didn’t change, the car just kept getting better as the race went on, we were just a little too tight to begin with.”

Defending Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals champion Cranston led the field to the green flag with Carney alongside. But it was third-starter Richardson racing into the lead in the opening pair of corners and setting the pace ahead of Cranston and Carney in the early going.

Cranston began to move in to challenge after a handful of laps and slid past Richardson in turn two for the point on the tenth round with Richardson making a counter-move only to have the red flag appear.

Richardson led just two more laps before Carney raced past both he and Cranston en route to victory lane.

Cranston settled for runner-up honors, explaining that, “I don’t think we had anything for him (Carney), he found the top before I did and it was too late then.”

Blurton picked off a pair of positions after the red-flag stoppage to fill out the podium third as Richardson settled for fourth with Stu Snyder advancing a handful of positions to round out the top five.

Ty Williams earned Hard Chargers honors by racing from 14th to sixth with Jeremy Huish, Todd Plemons, 17th-starter Tyler Drueke and Jordan Knight completing the top ten.

After Jeff Stasa established the quickest overall lap of 17.584 seconds in qualifying, Cranston, Huish, Plemons and Blurton topped heat race action with Drueke and Jon Freeman winning the twin “B” Mains.

The Fifth Annual Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals wraps up with Saturday night’s $7,500-to-win and $1,000-to-start championship finale.

Chance Crum Claims Career First Win in Xtreme/POWRi National Midget League at I-55
Belleville, IL. (8/5/22) Chance Crum would capture his first career checkers Friday night at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in support of the Prelude to the Ironman 55 with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget Leagues running in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota.

Early Pevely Missouri competition with thirty-four Xtreme/POWRi National Midgets entered would see Michael Pickens start the night off on the right step with a 12.625-second lap and notch the quickest group qualifying time as Kyle Jones, Brenham Crouch, Chase McDermand, and Michael Pickens would each earn heat racing victories with Ethan Mitchell grabbing the semi-feature win.

Launching the field of stout competitors on the initial green flag would find high point qualifier Michael Pickens draw an inversion of six to set the feature lineup, with Chance Crum and Kyle Jones on the front row as Crum would use low-line momentum to take the opening lap lead.

Battling to take the top spot on lap five Karter Sarff would appear to be the fastest driver early as Chance Crum, Chase McDermand, Kyle Jones, Brenham Crouch, and Michael Pickens all battled inside the leading pack of competitors.

Restarting around the mid-way point, Chance Crum would mount a charge back to the front of the field using a precise low run as Sarff maintained momentum to match the leading Crum as Brenham Crouch and Michael Pickens intently battled for third and fourth positions.

Bringing the feature event to a thrilling conclusion would find Chance Crum and Karter Sarff feverishly flying around the technical and tricky track with Chance Crum holding steady at the point of the pack to gain his first career Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League feature victory.

“This is a really special one, we’ve been close to grabbing our first national midget win before which makes this one mean even more. I can’t thank this team enough for giving me this opportunity” stated Chance Crum in the Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely Winner’s Circle.

One-time leader Karter Sarff would maintain a solid showing to finish runner-up as Michael Pickens flew through the field late to complete the features podium placements. Brenham Crouch would finish the night fourth as Zach Daum rounded out the Lucas Oil POWRi National & West Midget Leagues, running in conjunction with Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota, top-five finishers at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely Missouri on Friday Night.

Pirtek Renegades     New Richmond, WI, July 30, 2022

The winged sprints of the Pirtek Renegades returned to their home track, Cedar Lake Speedway, after spending the previous weekend touring central Wisconsin. A whopping twenty seven teams signed in to do battle on the high banks, qualifying in three heat races. Tyler Rabenberg nabbed the win in Pirtek heat race #1, while Jack Berger snared checkers in RTS podcast heat #2, with CLS heat #3 going to Brady Donnohue. Rabenberg and Berger tallied identical 143 passing points to lead all drivers, with each coming from the outside of the second row for their respective wins.

Donnohue and Patrick Heikkinen redrew the front row for the 20-lap feature, with Donnohue taking charge early being chased by Heikkinen and Berger. Behind the leaders, Todd Hanson, Carter Chevalier and Owen Carlson were locking horns in a dandy 3-car tussle for fourth. After a caution on lap 15, the restart saw the #63 of Hanson snake past both Heikkinen and Berger and into second, with Donnohue not missing a beat and continuing his domination at the point. In the final few laps Carter Chevalier and Mike Mueller also cracked the top five. At the double checkers it was Donnohue picking up his first career Renegade sticker, followed by Hanson in second, which was also a career best. Heikkinen, Chevalier and Mueller rounded out the top five. Through eight events so far this season for the winged sprints, Donnohue’s win marks the seventh different winner in what is proving to be a very balanced and competitive field for the Pirtek Renegades.

The Renegades will take a two-week hiatus before wrapping up the season with a flurry of events and invitationals. The winged sprints’ next action will be back at CLS on August 20, and the traditional sprints hit the road that same evening for their lone appearance of the season at the Jackson Motorplex, in Jackson, MN. The following weekend, both winged and traditional teams will descend on Cedar Lake for the fifth annual “Swampman Invitational”, formally known as the Traditional Sprint Car Challenge. The Friday/Saturday, August 26/27 affair also features teams from the Northern Renegades and Mid-American Renegades, and potentially a few Chequamegon Renegades and Western Renegades teams as well. More information on upcoming events for the Pirtek Renegades, as well as links to other Renegades series, can be found at www.umsprints.com, or on facebook.

With a four point difference between Jack Wagner in first and Taylor Walton in second and Tyler Elliott in striking distance in third, the Winged Sprint Car title was on the line.

The Pure Stock Class kicked off the order of events for the evening with two heat races scheduled. Heat one saw Justin McDowell lead early even after an opening lap caution reset the field behind him. McDowell stayed in command of the event for the duration with Darin Porter close behind in second. Jack Wood would cross in third and Shannon Sullivan finished fourth. Heat two saw veteran Stan Booth take the lead from the pole position and hold off the challenges of Shayne Healea and Russell Beach to take the win. Beach would finish second and James Piercy finished third.

The Super Stocks were next on the track for two heat races. Derek Henson took the victory in heat one over Clayton Campbell in second, Jody Romig in third and Tyler Crocker in fourth. Heat two saw Jim Kimbell take the lead on the green flag until he slid high coming out of turn four and made contact with the outside wall. Dason Klund inherited the lead until Brandon Dunham made the pass in turn two on the restart and led for the duration. Klund would finish in the number two spot.

Third on the card were the Winged Sprint Cars for the final set of heat races at Double X for 2022. Ben Brown quickly established himself in the top spot with Jack Wagner settling into second. At the checkers Brown would win with Wagner in second, Mackenzie Borchers was third, Tyler Elliott fourth, Curtis Evans fifth and Daryn Langford in sixth. Heat two saw Taylor Walton take the win with Tyler Blank in second, Samuel Wagner in third, Russell Potter in fourth and Tanner Sloan in fifth

At intermission, Steve Beach did some tribute laps in memory of long time Central Missouri dirt track racer “Jumpin” Jimmy Turpin who passed away earlier in the week. Steve spent the week numbering his car #0 with long time Turpin sponsor Chick’s Tap Room in the doors, in a tribute to Jimmy Turpin’s most memorable Camaro race car. During the tribute laps we played Jimmy’s theme song “Bad to the Bone” in his honor. Jimmy Turpin was well known for his victories at Double X Speedway, Woody’s Speedway, Capital Speedway, Callaway Raceway and others in the Central Missouri area. Rest In Peace racer.

Feature time saw the Pure Stocks on the card first with Justin McDowell and Stan Booth leading the field to the green. Justin McDowell would step out to the lead with Booth and Darin Porter in tow. The trio would run in this order until a lap eight caution would see the field shuffle slightly. Porter was the main benefactor as he had just pitted with a flat right rear. His crew was able to change it and get him back on the track during the caution without losing a lap. On the restart McDowell and Booth would run one-two to the finish. Following the lead duo was Jack Wood in third, Russell Beach in fourth and James Piercy completed the top five. Darin Porter would finish sixth, Shannon Sullivan seventh and Curt Turpin was eighth. Shayne Healea was ninth but did not finish due to right front damage.

The Super Stock feature had the always tough Derek Henson on the pole with hard charging Brandon Dunham on the outside. Henson moved out to the lead with Dunham in tow. A lap two restart saw Dunham try too hard and get into the back of the leader. A safety check by track officials saw the reline go off with all in the correct running order. On the restart Henson would open up a six car length lead over second place. Clayton Campbell would move into second on lap three. A lap eight caution brought the field together once again. Clayton Campbell would find some grip on the top groove and would pressure Henson for a handful of laps before he got a little high in one and two and had to check up. Henson would lead the remainder unchallenged. Campbell crossed the stripe in second, Jody Romig was third, Brandon Dunham in fourth and Eddie Keeran rounded out the top five. Steve Beach was sixth, Dason Klund seventh, Tyler Crocker eighth and Jim Kimbell ninth.

The Winged Sprint Car feature would decide the track champion for 2022. Heading into the event Taylor Walton and Jack Wagner were tied for the point lead, so this feature would truly decide the championship. Pole starter Ben Brown would move into the lead on lap one but a caution for Broc Elliott and Tanner Sloan would bunch the field after one completed lap. Brown would lead the restart followed by Jack Wagner, Taylor Walton, Tyler Blank and Mackenzie Borchers. On the restart Brown would continue to lead until lap twelve when he would brush the wall on the backstretch allowing Wagner and Blank to motor by. Jack Wagner would open a ten car length lead over second place Blank as they both worked lapped traffic. A lap eighteen caution for the slowed car of Tanner Sloan would reset the field behind the leading #77. On the restart things changed in a hurry, Wagner would slip high exiting turn four allowing Blank to overtake him for the number one spot. Wagner would start to fade with Taylor Walton moving into the number two spot, Ben Brown would ride third with Wagner eventually settling into the fourth position. On the white flag lap Brown would get into turn three with a head of steam and tap the back of the #93 of Walton turning Walton sideways as Brown would slide off the top of turn three. Walton was able to correct his sprinter and follow Blank under the checkered and yellow displayed by flagman Rudy Wirts. At the finish it was Tyler Blank with the victory, Taylor Walton held on for second, Jack Wagner would finish third, Tyler Elliott fourth and Curtis Evans fifth. Mackenzie Borchers was sixth, Samuel Wagner seventh, Russell Potter eighth at the checkered.

Kyle and Carol Wirts, owners and operators of Double X Speedway say THANK YOU to the drivers, crews, fans sponsors and employees for another successful year at Double X Speedway. The 2023 season will kick off the first Sunday in May and we hope you will plan to be a part of local dirt track racing in Central Missouri.

Justin Sanders Wins Speedweek Northwest Title And Marvin Smith Memorial Grove Classic Finale; Trenchard And Ray Also CGS Victors

Cottage Grove, Oregon- Speedweek Northwest went out with a bang on Saturday, July 30th, as Cottage Grove Speedway hosted the group for the fourth time in five nights. It was also the final leg of the Marvin Smith Memorial Grove Classic. Thirty-two 360 Sprint Car teams were in attendance from the states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and California, as well as British Columbia, Canada. IMCA Modifieds and Street Stocks were also on the card.

Tyler Driever, from Meridian, Idaho, initially took control of the point at the first drop of the green flag. Unfortunately, the opening circuit failed to be completed due to a multi-car incident. On the second take, Logan Forler got to the point.

Forler, now calling Boise, Idaho home, set a rapid pace over the rest of the pack. Then, however, he would get bottled up in some hefty lapped traffic, allowing some challengers to come calling. Among them was Justin Sanders in the Demo Mittry-owned entry. Sanders, from Aromas, California, would battle fiercely with Logan for several laps before Sanders took control on lap thirty.

Forler would get up on the wheel and pursue Justin to try and reoccupy P1. A lap thirty-four incident would pause the battle for the lead. On the restart, Justin Sanders would take off and dominate the rest of the distance. Justin Sanders became the seventh different winner in Marvin Smith Memorial Grove Classic history and the first driver to sweep the entire weekend.

It is his fourth straight Speedweek Northwest triumph and is the first time since 1999, with Brad Furr, to win four consecutive races in a single season with the series. He also is the sixteenth different driver to capture the Speedweek Northwest title and is the eleventh driver from California to win the championship.

Logan Forler was second, with third going to Roseville, California’s Jodie Robinson. Jesse Schlotfeldt, from Arlington, Washington, beat out Tyler Driever for fourth. Schlotfeld won the consolation feature earlier in the program.

Nick Trenchard would score the victory in the IMCA Modifieds. Racing for the Biehn Racing team is the first time that the Klamath Falls driver has won at Cottage Grove Speedway this year. Curtis Towns, from Cottage Grove and racing for car owner Frank Brewer, was second, with Springfield’s Jake Mayden grabbing third. Paul Rea of Eugene and Thurston driver Ricky Ashley were fourth and fifth.

Daniel Ray got the call up late to pilot the Adam Applebee-owned Street Stock. However, the Springfield chauffeur conquered the field to earn the triumph. Cottage Grove’s Eric Freeman was the runner-up over third finishing Garrett Craig of Veneta. Jordan Robinson, from Scappoose, and Jasper driver Andrew Langan, racing the Josh Linville fielded entry, placed fourth and fifth.

Cottage Grove Speedway is in action for two nights this coming weekend. The Mark Howard Modified Nationals will be on Friday, August 5th, and Saturday, the 6th. Classes for both nights include the IMCA Modifieds, Royalty Core Custom Grill and Truck Parts IMCA Northern SportMods, and Hardtops. For more information, log on to www.cottagegrovespeedway.com.

Late move nets Andy Forsberg first SCCT win of the year at Petaluma Speedway Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Petaluma, CA…Andy Forsberg is always a favorite when he signs in at Petaluma Speedway and on Saturday the 46-year-old veteran reminded everyone of that, executing a late pass of Ryan Robinson to collect his initial SCCT win of 2022.

It marked the third career Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards triumph for the Auburn racer, who earned the victory aboard the Pacific Highway Rentals/ Wilkie Masonry No. 92 machine. It was his 199th overall Sprint Car win, moving him closer to that distinguished 200 milestone. It also allowed him to stretch his SCCT point lead to 61-markers with six events remaining.

“We’re happy to be standing up here tonight and I hope all the fans enjoyed that one,” Forsberg said following the race. “I always talk about how these main events have different stages and play out so random at times. At one point Tony Gomes got by me, but the caution saved us. That completely changed the complexion of the race and gave me a shot at Ryan Robinson after the restart. Thank you to everyone for coming out and packing these stands at Petaluma Speedway. It’s great to see the support and be sure to come back for the SCCT Adobe Cup on September 24th.”

The 35-lap SCCT feature started out with Forsberg jumping into the lead ahead of Gomes. As often is the case at Petaluma the laps ticked off fast and furious with excellent racing prevalent throughout the field. Foresthill’s Ryan Robinson quickly became the man to watch however, as he manhandled the Mike Phulps owned Metal Works No. 56 around the 3/8 mile oval in thrilling fashion.

Following a lap eight restart the defending SCCT champion made his move, blasting around Gomes and then went to work on Forsberg for the top spot.

Robinson rocketed around the outside of Forsberg to narrowly lead lap nine, before edging ahead down the back stretch. He then had his way with things out front as Gomes and Forsberg ran close together for the runner up position. Gomes would charge to the inside and claim second momentarily with 12 laps to go, only to have a caution negate the pass. On the restart Forsberg found new life and hounded Robinson for the point, before slicing to his inside for the lead on lap 27.

Forsberg then drove off to accept the Scott Erwin checkered flag for the victory, becoming the eighth different winner in 10 SCCT main events contested this season. Penngrove’s Chase Johnson piloted the Quinn Motorsports/ Our Heroes Dreams No. 28 from eighth to second in the main event. It marked his second consecutive runner up effort with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour at Petaluma. Tony Gomes continued his consistent season by rounding out the podium in the Menne Motorsports/ North Forty Films No. 75 mount.

Yuba City’s Landon Brooks came home fourth in the Van Lare Steering Repair No. 5v, while San Jose’s Tim Kaeding carved his way from 13th to fifth at the helm of the Bates-Hamilton Racing No. 42x entry. Penngrove’s Colby Johnson claimed the Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Award with a drive from 16th to sixth, while the remainder of the top-10 was filled out by Robinson, who had a reported mag issue late in the going, Suisun City’s Chance Grasty, Sebastopol’s Bradley Terrell and Roseville’s Sean Becker.

Forsberg captured the High Sierra Industries Dash and the Tiner-Hirst Ent. heat race during the night. Hanford’s Michael Faccinto won the BR Motorsports heat, while Chance Grasty pocketed the King Racing Products heat race. Ryan Robinson started out the night by narrowly setting the Bianchi Farms fast time with a lap of 13.236, just 0.001 ahead of Gomes.

The Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards will have a couple weeks off, before resuming action with the 62nd “Johnny Key Classic” at Watsonville’s Ocean Speedway on Saturday August 20th.

Shaffer, Shingledecker, Fielding, and Speer Tops at Tri-City Raceway Park
 
(Franklin, PA July 31, 2022):  Tim Shaffer paid an unexpected visit to Tri-City Raceway Park, and he carried home the lion’s share of the purse in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars. Shaffer was recently reunited with car owner Brian Groves, for whom he has raced off and on for over twelve years. His last win at the speedway came in 2020, also atthe wheel of the Groves 28.
 
Also getting the win in the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds was Jeremiah Shingledecker, as a substitute driver for car owner Kevin Hoffman. Ironically, Hoffman entered this event second to Shingledecker in the point standings. Shingledecker’s win helped Hoffman to close the gap in the championship contest. Taking the win in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks was Pat Fielding for the first time in his career. Dalton Speer returned to victory lane for the first time in almost a year in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks.
 
Shaffer was late to stage for his heat race, thinking that the 410 Sprint Cars were coming out for hot laps. When he realized that it was his heat instead, Shaffer and company scrambled and he made it out in time to start at the tail. “I came up through there pretty good, and that’s when I knew that we had a good car,” he said.
 
Shaffer emphasized that he was having fun since hooking up again with Brian Groves. “I was racing my (Crate) Late Model and I just got a win with that. Then, Brian asked me to come back and here we are. It’s funny how things come together like that.”
 
Shaffer gave props to the Tri-City track preparation crew. “I know that some people complain about the track here, but they need to go around the country to realize how good it is here. I know that it is hard to get the track right starting in the daytime.” Shaffer knows quite a bit about track preparation himself, for he has a Kart track on his farm near Aliquippa. “It had a few dips, but you need to learn how to drive around them and maintain your speed.” Shaffer’s years of experience was evident this night, as he dominated the 410 Sprint Car A Main.
 
The Steel City Outlaw started on the pole by luck of the draw. Next to him was veteran Bob Felmlee. Chase Metheney and Jack Sodeman, Jr. started from row two, with Logan McCandless and A.J. Flick in row three. Leyton Wagner and Vivian Jones made up row four. Ricky Peterson and Jeremy Weaver departed from row five.
 
Shaffer blasted into the lead at the drop of the green. Felmlee ran second briefly before giving way to Metheney by the conclusion of lap one. Sodeman and Flick followed at some distance. As Shaffer stretched his lead, Felmlee regained second position. Soon thereafter, Sodeman moved up a notch as well, and so did Flick.
 
When Shaffer encountered lapped traffic, Felmlee began to narrow the margin a bit. However, Felmlee spun while attempting to pass the lapped car of Vivian Jones.
 
On the ensuing restart, Flick went after Sodeman. They entered turn one side-by-side. Sodeman pulled away on the trip down the back stretch. But, Flick rode the middle groove to power off turn four for second when the white flag was being displayed.
 
Flick had no time to challenge Shaffer for the win. Sodeman was third, followed by Wagner and McCandless. Peterson, Felmlee, Jones, Metheney, and Weaver were the balance of the top ten.
 
The heat race winners were Jack Sodeman, Jr. and Logan McCandless. There was no B Main for the ten-car field.
 
Jeremiah Shingledecker was the hired gun driving the Kevin Hoffman 00, which won the most recent Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modified race held three weeks ago. Shingledecker romped to the win, surviving a restart with two laps remaining.
 
“I can’t take all of the credit for it,” Shingledecker said modestly. “These guys (Kevin and John Hoffman) have been pretty fast the last few weeks. We put a couple of pads behind me and I was good to go.”
 
Shingledecker added, “this was my first and last night in the car. I hope that Kevin is feeling better soon. He’s pretty sore.”
 
Shingledecker will not be back in his own car, the 37MD, as that machine was recently sold to new competitor Austin Eyler. Shingledecker will concentrate on his Big Block car for the remainder of the year. He is unsure of his plans for 2023. “We’ll see over the winter, we may put a Big Block in (the spare car) or we may build another Small Block.”
 
Lonny Riggs had the pole for the start of the twenty lap race for Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds. Jimmy Holden was on his flank. Nick Joy and Jeremiah Shingledecker were in row two. Sid Unverzagt, Jr. made his first feature start of the 2022 season from the fifth spot. He was paired with Eric Beggs. Jeremy Beichner and Austin Eyler made up the last row.
 
Holden took the lead at the drop of the green, with Riggs holding second and Nick Joy third. However, Shingledecker raced into second by the conclusion of lap one. He stalked Holden for several laps, trying high and low. He made the pass between turns one and two about five laps into the fray.
 
Shingledecker stretched his lead over Holden while a good battle was going on for the third position amongst Riggs, Joy, Unverzagt, and Beggs. Soon that contest became a two-car race between Riggs and Joy.
 
A caution with two laps remaining brought Shingledecker back to Holden. Holden got a good jump off turn four when the race resumed, but Shingledecker drove through the middle of the track to take command at the other end of the track.
 
Shingledecker won the two-lap dash for all the cash. Holden was second. Joy got by Riggs for third. Beggs, who was the cause of the caution, recovered for fifth. Unverzagt, Eyler, and Beichner rounded out the field.
 
Winning the preliminary was Jeremiah Shingledecker. There was no B Main for the eight cars on hand.
 
Pat Fielding scored his first ever career win, in the Spectator Stocks, many years ago on a Twin State Racing Club night at another area track. “It is great to get my first Stock Car win on a Club night, too. And, this one came at my home track.” Fielding has been a loyal supporter of the Pro Stocks since moving up to the class in 2010.
 
Doug Iorio, II pulled the pole for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stock main event. Fielding was in the second position. Charlie McMillen and Tyler Wyant made up row two. Aaron Smith and Josh Seippel paired up in row three. Quinten Boozel trailed the field.
 
Iorio took the early lead and held command through the caution which came with just a few laps remaining. Fielding used the restart to his advantage, taking the lead away from Iorio. Fielding led the rest of the way for the emotional victory.
 
Iorio was second, with McMillen third, rookie Quinten Boozel fourth, and Smith in fifth. Seippel and Wyant were scored sixth and seventh, respectively, based on laps completed.
 
Taking the qualifier for the seven cars was Doug Iorio, II. There was no B Main.
 
Dalton Speer found his way back to victory lane in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. Speer was a title contender last season until he suffered a rash of mechanical failures in the stretch run. He was worried about that this night as well, explaining that his car was overheating badly.
 
Chad Greeley, in a borrowed car, started from the pole in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. Dillon Thorne was his wing man. Thomas Warren and Dalton Speer nailed down row two. The third belonged to Levi Maskal and Bodey McClintock. Todd Hanlon and Matt Urey were in the fourth row. Tyler Ellenberger and D.J. Macrae lined up in the fifth row. Row six had Paul Marsh and Josh Funkhouser. Kevin Wice and Devin Haley made up the final row.
 
Speer held off the leading winner in the class, Levi Maskal, to get the win. Last week’s winner, Urey, was third. Hanlon and McClintock completed the top five. Positions six through ten went to Macrae, Thorne, Greeley, Haley, and Ellenberger.
 
Matt Urey and Dalton Speer copped the heat victories. As fourteen cars registered, there was no B Main.
 
Tri-City Raceway Park will begin the stretch run with a pair of Sunday Thunder events, which will include the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprints, the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, and the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. Then, on August 21, the speedway will host the World of Outlaws Late Model Series. Joining the most powerful Late Models on the planet will be the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. Please note this schedule change. The track will close out the month of August with another Sunday Thunder program on August 28.
 
Get ready for the season-ending spectacular to be held over the Labor Day weekend. The activity will start with a practice session on Friday, September 2, with free grandstand admission. Racing will begin on Saturday, September 3, for the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprints, the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks, and the Junior Sprints.

O’Reilly Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway

ORRVILLE - Just when folks thought the on-track action couldn’t be topped at the O’Reilly Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway, one of the Fast Five series divisions has moved to the forefront.

On Saturday night it was the Pine Tree Towing and Recovery Sprint Cars that took center stage.

The Ti22 FAST series returned to the ultra-fast 3-8-mile for the second time this season in joining the speedway’s highly competitive 410-winged warriors and the combination failed to disappoint.

Findlay-area driver Ricky Peterson wowed the crowd by picking up his first win of the season, and first career FAST series victory as well, by leading the final three circuits of the 30-lap, $3,000-to win headliner at “Orrville’s Historic Oval.”

Although Peterson became the 12th different winner in 13 sprint car races this season, a trio of drivers made familiar returns to WCS’s victory lane. Ryan Markham notched victory number five on the season, and third at WCS, by claiming the 25-lap Malcuit Tavern Super Late Model feature after a race-long duel with Nathan Loney, while Kyle Moore captured victories 19 and 20 on the 2022 campaign in winning both the 20-lap Elite Munitions Modified and 15-lap McKenzie Concrete Super Stock mains. Justin Cranmore capped the evening with his triumph, his fourth of the season at WCS, by leading all 12 laps of the JoyRide Mini Stock finale.

Peterson, in the Jerry-McClure-owned No. 9, threw his hat in the ring, among a host of others, in becoming one of the favorites in the fast-approaching $15,000-to-win Pete Jacobs Memorial (Sunday, Sept. 4) by taming the treacherous high side cushion around the paper-clip shaped oval from his sixth starting spot.

Peterson ducked in behind pole-sitter Cody Bova at the start, with 2022 winners Tyler Street and Henry Malcuit close behind. Peterson traded spots with Lee Jacobs through lap 11 for fourth and fifth, while FAST point leader Nate Dussell, and fast charging Sean Rayhall and Danny Mumaw in tow. A lap14 yellow wiped out a straightaway lead for Bova, before Street, at the time, executed the move of the race by picking off Malcuit on the high side, and ducking below Bova in turns 1 and 2 on the restart for the race lead.

Another yellow on lap 17 bunched the field, with Bova contacting the turn 2 guardrail while running second on the restart, forcing the opening night winner to the Hutch Extreme Photos work area for repairs. Bova rejoined the field, but the action was halted on lap 21 for a Trey Jacobs flip in turn 2. On the ensuing restart, Malcuit made a patented slidejob on Street for the lead, but Street’s momentum exiting turn 2 sent the Vantage No. 4 over the rear of the Red Malcuit Inc. 70 which resulted in Street losing several spots.

Disaster struck, however, on lap 22 as a melee in turn 1 collected a slew of front-runners. Lee Jacobs, running fourth, Rayhall sixth, and Mumaw seventh were involved in the crash with Chris Myers, Jack Sodeman, and Wyatt Zimmerman also involved.

Malcuit took the lead on the restart with Peterson grabbing second with Dussell third and Street a close fourth. Peterson closed in on Malcuit on lap 25 before grabbing the lead on lap 27 in turn 4. Peterson hung on for the win with Malcuit second, Street third, with Dussell fourth, WCS regular Nick Patterson fifth from 20th, Bova, Leyton Wagner, Mitch Harble, Jonah Aumend, and Jamie Myers completing the top 10.

“This is huge for us,” said Peterson from victory lane. “We’ve won here before, so l knew we could do it, but we have been struggling a little bit. I can’t thank the entire McClure Team enough, and Bonsai (Bruns, legendary sprint car mechanic) has been helping us and this feels great. I looked at the scoreboard with eight or nine laps left and thought ‘man, l better get going.’ The track was great and it all worked out for us.”

The Late Models were up next with Loney and steel-block star Thomas Baker on the front row. The duo ran side-by-side through lap six with Loney in front, with Markham claiming third on lap 11 from Brett Bee with Mitch Caskey, JR Gentry, and Ryan Missler in tow.

Although Markham dogged Loney lap after lap, the Danville driver kept the No. 10 on point despite a stumbling powerplant. Markham finally took the lead on lap 22 with Loney hanging on for second, Caskey third, Gentry fourth, and Missler fifth.

“We have to run a little harder tire here, and we were trying to be patient,” said Markham. “I thought about moving down low earlier, but we decided to stay up top and keep her wound up. I saw we only had a few laps left, and l thought we gotta go now.”

Moore and the Bob Daugherty-owned No. 21 Super Stock have been nearly unbeatable this season as the duo picked up win 13 on the season on Saturday. Moore grabbed the lead on lap four from Rob Melzer on the high side of the speedway, then used the cushion in familiar style to distance himself from the rest of the field.

Braden Tucke once again made a valiant run but settled for second ahead of Melzer, Tyler Wiles, and Don Rutt.

Before last week’s win by Anthony Collins, Cranmore and Doug Hensel had been the only drivers with victories in the speedway’s Mini Stock division. Starting from the pole, Cranmore led from start to finish but it wasn’t easy for the black No. 2.

A host of challengers stayed within sight of Cranmore the entire distance which included a host of drivers cracking the race’s top five at some point. Zach Hershey, Kyle Petit, Travis Hutton, Doug and Brad Hensel, Chaz Dawson, Dustin Bedlion, and Johnny Bruce Sr., all spent time near the front in the main event. In the end, though, Cranmore held off the top five of Dawson, Hutton, Bruce Sr., and Brad Hensel.

“I kind of missed it here in victory lane,” said Cranmore. “But there’s a lot of fast, fast race cars in this division and we’ll take them when we can.”

The highly anticipated Modified main was next, and the 20-lap feature lived up to its billing, with multiple winner Colton Shaw, one-time winner DJ Cline, Loney, and always fast Ron Miller joining Moore in the TA Perrine No. 16.

Cline led early in the event, with Shaw, Moore, Miller, and pole-sitter Bill Griffith following. Shaw finally took the lead on lap nine, with Moore grabbing the top spot a lap later, but a caution nullified Moore’s bid for the lead.

Shaw held off the challenges of Moore until lap 16 when Shaw’s 01 machine looped around in turn 4 directly in front of a fast-closing Moore. Moore, with nowhere to hide, hit the 01 which caused a caution with slight damage to both cars.

Shaw, on the ensuing restart, was forced to rejoin the field from the tail, with Moore inheriting the lead. Moore took to the top of the speedway when the green replaced the yellow and sped away for his seventh Modified win of the season, and first in Perrine’s Jet-chassied mount. Cline rode home second, Casey Butler third, Shaw back to fourth, and Miller fifth.

“We weren’t very good in the heat, but we have this car pretty good right now,” said Moore. “I hated to see what happened with Colton there at the end. He’s been really fast and we had a good battle going, but that’s racing sometimes. I can’t thank (TA Perrine, owner) enough for the opportunity to drive this thing. We’ll be in it whenever he wants me to drive.”

The Fast Five series returns to the speedway next Saturday for the Rick Susong Memorial. The Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association joins the 410 sprints with a visit from the Vintage Race Cars.

GEORGE HOBAUGH CHARGES FROM 9TH FOR 1ST SHARON "410" SPRINT CAR WIN OF 2022

 July 30, 2022

By Mike Leone

(Hartford, OH)…After a highly successful nationally broadcast Camping World SRX event last Saturday night, Sharon Speedway returned to four-division weekly racing on Saturday night with a "Super Series" event. Celebrating in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane were George Hobaugh- Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars, Bobby Whitling-Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, JC Boyer-HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and Jeremy Double-Whelen Econo Mods. It was Kam's Electric, Warehouse Sales, and Hawk Performance Night.

George Hobaugh started ninth, passed teammate Carl Bowser with four laps to go and held off a big last lap charge by Dan Shetler to score the popular 30-lap Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Car feature victory. Hobaugh earned $3,000 for his third career Sharon victory, which came nearly four years after winning his first ever in a "410" from the ninth starting spot as well on August 6, 2018. Hobaugh will go down in history as winning the 700th all-time "410" Sprint Car feature held at Sharon.

"I feel bad for Carl (Bowser)," stated the 39-year-old Karns City, Pa. driver. "If that caution hadn't come out that was all his. He's been having a rough year, but has been really fast the last couple nights. It's a very torn situation. It's tough no matter who you're racing with whether it's the Outlaws, All Stars, or locals. This track puts on a phenomenal show; it was great and had multiple lines of racing. I didn't think honestly think I had a chance to win from ninth, but here we are!"

Bowser used the outside to fly into the lead past Logan McCandless on the start, while Darin Gallagher went fourth to second as Greg Wilson was also able to get by McCandless for third. Bowser had opened up a three-second lead when he caught lapped traffic on lap seven. While Bowser continued to lead over Gallagher and Wilson, a four-car battle ensued for fourth with Bob Felmlee trying to fend off Shetler, Hobaugh, and Brandon Spithaler. Shetler made the pass of Felmlee for fourth on lap 11. Wilson meanwhile had been working on Gallagher and finally made the pass stick for second on lap 13, but Bowser now had built up a 5.3 second advantage.

After finishing second on Friday night at Lernerville, Gallagher was looking for another podium but slowed to bring out the caution with 17 laps scored. Hobaugh had already worked his way by Shetler and Felmlee then inherited third from Gallagher. Hobaugh then slipped past Wilson for second on lap 19 with Shetler following in third two laps later.

Hobaugh closed in on Bowser on lap 24 and two laps later pulled a slider in turns one and two to take over the top spot on lap 26. Shetler followed taking runner-up from Bowser two laps later. Shetler made up a ton of ground over the final two laps as he was about a half-second faster. Shetler got a big run on the bottom of turns three and four on the final lap, but came up just 0.157 seconds shy of Hobaugh's Krill Recycling/Laskowski Plumbing/Ridgeview Security/Hobaugh Auto Parts/Hobo Storage-sponsored #40.

Bowser dropped to a disappointing third after leading the first 25 laps in search of his first win of the season. Wilson edged out Spithaler for fourth. Dan Kuriger, Felmlee, 14th starting Darren Pifer, Brett Brunkenhoefer, and Adam Kekich completed the top 10. Bowser set fast time overall in qualifying with a 15.067. Heat winners were Shetler and Spithaler.

Bobby Whitling ended more than a three-year winless drought by leading wire-to-wire in the 20-lap Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stock feature. The 2000 track champion kept former UMP Modified standout, Scott Stiffler, at bay for much of the feature for his first Sharon win since May 18, 2019 and became the fourth different winner in five races this season.

"It helps starting on the pole obviously but I kind of got out there and got into a rhythm, kept the car straight and never seen anyone so it worked," revealed the 49-year-old Franklin, Pa. racer. "I'm glad to pick up a win here as it's been awhile. First off I have to thank my brother. He's my partner in this; without him I wouldn't even be racing right now. Also my son, and the kids, we're all involved in this along with all the sponsors that make this possible."

Whitling and 70-year-old Larry Kugel led the field to green with Whitling taking the advantage over Kugel, while Stiffler went fifth to third. The event's only caution was for Will Thomas III, who was making his second Pro Stock start, as he spun running in fourth with two laps scored. When racing resumed on lap three, Stiffler took over second from Kugel. Sixth starting Curt J. Bish drove around Kugel for third on lap five.

Whitling and Stiffler distanced themselves from the field as Bish would never get close enough to challenge. Whitling's fourth career Pro Stock win and fifth overall at Sharon came by 0.839 seconds in his Dulaney's Garage/World of Wheels/Virgile Iron Steel/Bish Heating & Cooling/Precise Racing Products/Jed's Racing Engines-sponsored #7w.

Stiffler's runner-up was his best in a Pro Stock. Bish, who is the division's only repeat winner this season, was third. Jason Longwell went seventh to fourth over Jordan Perkins. Jonathan Davis beat out his father Paul, who started 11th, for sixth. Completing the top 10 were Thomas, Kugel, and Jason Johns. Heat winners were Thomas and Perkins.

JC Boyer emerged victorious in a thrilling finish to the 20-lap caution-free HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modified feature. Boyer slipped under standout Garrett Krummert in the midst of heavy lapped traffic racing in turn four and out-dragged Krummert to the checkered flag to capture his first career victory by just 0.024 seconds! Boyer became the fifth different winner in five races this year and third driver to win his first ever at Sharon. The event's non-stop time was 6:55.657.

"This feels so good to finally get one," expressed the 28-year-old Burghill, Ohio driver. "We've been trying hard, working slowly to get there, and taking the year to understand everything which has helped me out a lot. I'm excited. My parents are in town out of Florida for the weekend so it's pretty cool to get one with them here. I was following Tony (Tatgenhorst) and it seemed like he'd push out coming out of the turns and I'd do the same. Then I saw Garrett on the outside of me and thought if he can get up there, I can get up there. He did a heck of a job up there, but as soon as we got to traffic I started to get to him. We sent it in coming into (turn) four, hammered on it and just wanted to see what would happen. I had no idea who won and had to look at the scoreboard coming down the backstretch."

Tony Tatgenhorst took off in the early lead over Boyer, fifth starting Justin Shea, and Krummert from sixth. While Boyer was all over Tatgenhorst in the race for the lead, Krummert was working hard on Shea for third on lap six. Krummert finally cleared Shea off the top of turn four on lap seven. Krummert quickly ran down Boyer and drove by him off turn four as well on lap nine. Krummert then raced side-by-side with Tatgenhorst on lap 10 before making the outside stick for what most figured was the winning pass.

Boyer though didn't go away as he snuck past Tatgenhorst for second on lap 13. Boyer stayed within striking distance. Krummert caught lapped traffic on lap 17 as Boyer began to close in. Boyer was right there in the final laps. Krummert got hung up in turns three and four in traffic on the final lap. Boyer ducked low and at that point it was a drag race to the finish in heavy traffic with Boyer eeking out a popular win in his Commandoughs Pizza/L&M Processing/Rotuna Excavating/JT Alexander Trucking/Kelly-Cummings Funeral Homes/Ohio Intra Express/A.O.K.-sponsored #12.

Tatgenhorst crossed the line in third, but made heavy contact with Dave Price, who was in the middle of the battle between Boyer, Krummert, and other lapped cars at the finish. Shea was fourth with Rob Kristyak fifth. Ben Easler went 11th to sixth to earn the $100 Summit Racing Equipment hard charger gift card. Rounding out the top 10 were Josh Deems, Jacob Wolfe, 13th starting Kole Holden, and Doug Rutana. Shea and Krummert won the heat races over the 20-car field.

Opening night winner, Jeremy Double, became the season's first repeat Econo Mod winner. Double led all 20 laps of the Whelen feature, but it wasn't easy as he had to fend off seventh starting Will Thomas III on two late race double file restarts.

"We had everything working well and the car was pretty easy to drive," explained the 26-year-old Bristolville, Ohio driver. "It worked out all good on the invert. I thought we were going green-to-checkered. I was hoping we were as soon as I got cleared of lapped traffic then the caution came out. That made me nervous with the restarts and games being played, but it didn't matter."

Double used the outside to take the lead over Jarrett Young with Garrett Calvert, Brian Toto, and Thomas in tow. Double stretched his lead to a full straightaway by lap three, while the battle was on for second. Young had his hands full with Calvert, Thomas, Toto, and Jacob Eucker on lap six. Thomas continued to move forward getting by Calvert for third on lap nine. One lap later, Thomas snuck under Young for second.

Double had a huge 5.7 second lead by the time Thomas got to runner-up at the halfway point. Two cautions slowed action with 13 and 16 laps completed. This gave Thomas two shots alongside Double for the double file restarts. Double though was too strong as he backed up his Friday night win at Raceway 7 with his 18th career Sharon win by 0.612 seconds in his 2 Brothers Motorsports/King Bros./Wedge Motorsports/Russ King Racing/Malone Diesel/Bala Management/Honey Labs-sponsored #83.

Thomas' bid for his seventh win in nine tries in the Econo Mod over the past two years came up short. Young was third over Eucker. Calvert dropped to fifth. Sixth through 10th were Scott Burk, Jr., Andy Buckley, Jordan Simmons, Daniel Moffitt, and Bryan Wagner. Heat victors over the 21-car field were Thomas, Young, and Double.

Coming up next Saturday night (August 6) will be the "Bill Kirila Memorial" featuring the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars in another $3,000 to-win "Super Series" event along with the Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and the Whelen Econo Mods.

Morris picks up 14th career Mercer Racesaver 305 feature in Big Mav classic. King Jr(big block mods), Schaffer Jr.(Fastrak mods) and Thompson (minis) repeat.

By Jim Balentine (Mercer,Pa)

Michaels mercer raceway completed its 7th program of 2022 on a beautiful end of July Saturday with veteran Jim Morris winning the “Big mav classic” for Racesaver 305s and his 14th career win. Rex King Jr won his 9th big block modified feature; Jeff Schaffer Jr. took his 4th FASTRAK modified feature of 2022; and Andy Thompson his 10th career mini stock feature. Garret Davenport and Brandt Cramer won both jr sprint features. The night also featured bike races for the kids at intermission and all feature winners receive feature winners sign from the twin state auto racing club.

For Jimmy Morris 2022 has been an up and down year without a win in the Racesaver 305s. It all came together Saturday night taking the lead on lap 10 of the Big Mav classic 27 lap event collecting $1000 and earning another $850 in lap money. The night was in memory of former 305 sprint racer Brandon Hawkins who passed away in a construction accident 2 years ago. The feature would get off to a slow start with multiple yellows including a lap 1 skirmish which would eliminate Greg Dobrosky and Jeremy Kornbau as Kornbau would try to continue but suffered a broken shock on lap 2. On lap 3 Roman Jones went high in turn 2 and caught the outside wall flipping over. Jones was ok. The race would stay green as pole sitter Jake Gomola would lead until lap 10 when Morris got under on the inside to take the lead. Gomola would lose positions first to Vivian Jones and then slowed to bring out the yellow on lap 17. On the restart Morris would pull away to win by 1.87 seconds over Vivian Jones. “It was a marathon!!! I was worried about fuel and I used up my tire early getting around Jake (Gomola). I can’t thank my family and friends enough .. it’s a great race track tonight..it’s a sad deal what happened to Brandon (Hawkins) and I’m glad they and the Colwell family put this on (big mav classic)..these kids are tough and fearless they are fast and have good stuff and I’m old but I feel young even though I could be half these kids’ father out there. We are just having fun!!” Kyle Colwell was 3rd, Tommy Jasen 4th and Steve Kennewell 5th.

In the big block modifieds it was an all New York front row with invaders John Venuto and Tony Pangrazio post looking for the first career Mercer checkers. For a while it looked like Pangrazio was gonna pull off the victory until lap number nine when he suffered a flat tire in turn 4. 2 time winner Eric gabany would inherit the lead but he went high on lap 10 out of turn 4 and lost 4 positions. Rex King Jr took the lead over and after a few more yellows held on for a .529 second win over Gabany who came back through the field to finish 2nd. Mike Kinney was 3rd, Chaz Wolbert 4th and Rick Regalski 5th. “It took a little longer then I wanted but we did good . I had to hurry when he was in the brown stuff. Eric is pretty dang good here but it fell into out hands. The track is getting better and better each week and we will be here a lot more!”

In the FASTRAK crate modifieds it was all Jeff Schaffer Jr as he led flag to flag to pick up his 4th of the season and all 4 of his wins came this year. Michael Kristyak had his best run ever finishing 2nd, Caden Petry fell back one spot to 3rd, Shayne Izzo 4th and Brian Schaffer finished where he started in 5th.

Andy Thompson drove the hardest race of his season in picking up his 5th win in 7 starts this season coming from 12th.

Corey Bice would lead the first 4 laps until falling back to 5th on lap 5 when Thompson took over with cousin Carl Ealy in tow. They would battle side by side for the rest of the feature event with Ealy leading laps 10 and 11. On lap 14 Ealy’s steering wheel Came out of his position with Ealy crashing head on into the concrete wall in the pit area in turn number four bringing out the red. With the crash and time expiring the race was declared official as Ealy was transported to the hospital for further observation. Randy Ealy was 2nd, a great battle between Corey Bice and Cole Miller has Miller edging out Bice for 3rd, and DJ MacRae from 15th was 5th. “We run each other harder than any other on the track and we don’t take it easy on each other. We try to give the crowd a good show each week. I saw smoke and smelled something in Carl’s car so I’m not sure what happened. It’s a challenge to finish and win as we have because these guys are tough.”

Michaels mercer raceway will be dark next Saturday but will return in 2 weeks with the Ralph Quarterson memorial western pa sprint championship featuring the 410s and big blocks both running 33 laps paying $3300 to win each.

Martin, Beagle, Sandercock, and Gordon are Victorious on Club 54 Racing Night at Ohsweken

By Brent Otchere

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (July 29 2022) – Club 54 Racing presented NLMA Late Models, while the Dirt Modified Nostalgia Tour also came to visit Ohsweken Speedway Friday night alongside the weekly divisions of Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars and Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks. At the end of the night Martin, Beagle, Sandercock, and Gordon left victorious.

Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars Liam Martin and Mitch Brown led the 24 drivers to the green flag starting the 20 lap 360 Sprint Car A-Main. Martin began to run away with the race after a great start, as he found pace on the high side of the track. The leaders began to encounter traffic by lap four which made for some exciting racing. Brown finally cleared Mikey Kruchka after battling for the second position as the laps were winding down. They both showed that hard racing can be clean and respectful as they both gave themselves plenty of racing space. The caution-free race made every racing move important as a mistake could send you back into the pack. Martin stayed up front and won his second race of the year after holding off Brown’s final push for the win. Brown ultimately finished second with Kruchka following him for a third place finish. Rounding out the top five were Cory Turner and Nick Sheridan. Cory Turner leaves the night as the new leader of the division with three points over his brother Ryan Turner who now sits in second place.

Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks Gofast Teeple and Kyle Andress led the grid to start the 20 lap Thunder Stock A-Main. Mark MacDonald inherited the lead after Teeple shockingly retired on the first lap. All eyes were on Ryan Beagle however, as he snagged the first spot by the third lap after starting in 18th. Beagle’s championship rival Dave Bailey was also making quick work of field after starting 19th due to the handicap system. Robert Hoskins could not hold off Bailey any longer and was passed for the second spot. With eight laps left to go a caution was brought out by Scott McPhail when he came to a stop in turn three. The electricity in the crowd could be felt as the two title contenders brought the field to green on the restart. Beagle prevailed as the crowd cheered him on, but an untimely caution came out with only two laps left go; the race came down to a green-white-checkered finish. Beagle proved to be the driver to beat as he once again held off Bailey for the win, with the margin between them being just 0.095 seconds. Bailey finished second, Mark Fawcett third, Hoskins fourth, and Cristopher Hale fifth. Bailey still remains the division leader with 37 points over Beagle.

Northeast Late Model Alliance Tour Brandt Graham and Andrew Hennessy led the grid to start the 30 lap NLMA Crate Late Model A-Main. The first caution of the race came out on lap one as David Stolzenberg spun out and came to a stop at the exit of turn three. Graham retained the lead until Charlie Sandercock overtook him on lap seven. Hennessy’s pace to the leader waned as he struggled to overtake the lapped cars which allowed Kyle Sopaz to apply pressure for the second position. Relief came to Hennessy’s aid as a caution reset the field, allowing him to gain the lead after a great restart. The field couldn’t get resettled which resulted in four straight cautions. Even though Hennessy was able hold off the pack it was Sandercock who passed for the lead and ultimately won the race. Hennessy finished second, Austin King third, Brandon Mowat fourth, and Kyle Sopaz fifth.

Dirt Modified Nostalgia Tour Greg Hale and Bill Profota led the grid to start the 12 lap Vintage Car A-Main. Hale had a commanding lead until he lost control and spun, bringing out the caution as he tried to defend the lead from Doug Gordon. The restart saw Gordon, Profota and Imbeault give the fans a show of clean but very hard racing, reminiscent of the earlier days of racing. Gordon pulled away with the lead as Shadwell and Imbeault battled for the second position. The three leaders stayed well ahead of the pack as the white flag was shown. Gordon left the night with a victory, with Shadwell finishing second, Imbeault third, Brandon Gregory fourth, and Bill Montreuil fifth. Hannah Ferrell left Ohsweken Speedway as the leader of the tour’s points standings with a seven point lead over Profota.

Up Next at Ohsweken Speedway Renway Energy presents KIDSRACE Canadian National Autism Foundation Night and Christmas in August on Friday, August 5, featuring the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland’s Crate Sprint Cars, Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks, and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks.

Starks Scores $4k at Skagit Speedway

7/30/22

Alger, WA - On a sweltering summer evening at Skagit Speedway, Trey Starks came away with the $4,000 top prize in the 410 division after going wire to wire for the win in the 30 lap main event.

After winning the dash and earning the pole position for the main, Starks would absolutely carve through traffic and go unchallenged in leading every lap of the main event and in the process, extend his point lead in the division. The battle behind Trey for second was entertaining all race long, with Greg Hamilton, Jason Solwold, Brock Lemley and Colby Thornhill all holding the spot at one point in time. As the checkered flag flew, it was Thornhill securing second as he had just slipped by Solwold on the previous circuit. Solwold set fast time on the night, while Lemley and Hamilton won the heats.

Wrecks and spin outs were the theme of the night in the support divisions, who both ended up having laps cut due to time limits. In the Sportsman Sprints, Dana Glenn raced to his first career win at Skagit Speedway, taking the lead from Brett McGhie on the third lap and leading the rest of the way. McGhie would hold second all race long, while Alden Ostrom grabbed a career best finish in the division with a third place result. Jesson Jacobson, Bill Rude and Glenn were the heat race winners.

Tyson Blood took over the lead on lap two of Skagit Aggregates Modifieds main event and would lead the rest of the way for the victory. After multiple wrecks and restarts, Blood took the checkered flag ahead of Rick Smith and Travis Ross. Blood and Ross won heats, as did Zane Miner.

Wilmot Raceway Results 7/30/22

(Wilmot, Wis., Saturday, July 30, 2022)--Clayton Rossmann of Wadsworth, IL added to his Wilmot Raceway early racing legacy by capturing his second 20-lap AutoMeter/Brewington Electric Wisconsin WingLESS Sprints feature of his career on Wm. J. Meyer & Son of Libertyville, IL Night Saturday, July 30.
Rossmann, who won his first ever feature at age 15 last summer, took the lead following a caution on a restart with 11 laps remaining. Ryan Marshall of Kansasville, who held top spot through three early cautions, suddenly lost power with 12 laps remaining while leading bringing out a yellow and retiring to the pits. On the restart, Ryan Zielski of Oconomowoc, who inherited the lead, also lost power retiring to the pits and bringing out another yellow.
Rossmann took over the point on the restart with one final yellow coming with four laps remaining. The now 16-year-old second generation driver became the second youngest sprint car feature winner in Wilmot's history. Nathan Crane of Waukegan, IL was second. Bristol's Chris Klemko came from 10th starting spot to finish third. Greg Olsen of Round Lake Heights, IL was fourth. Tim Cox of Park City, IL came from 11th to finish fifth.
"I really wish that I could have battled Ryan (Marshall) and Ryan (Zielski), who both had mechanical woes," said Rossmann, joined by his family in victory lane. Rossmann's win in 2021 made him the youngest ever sprint car feature winner ever. "The first one was when I was 15 and now I'm only 16 and have a second one. It feels great."
The Pfeiffier Trailer Sales IRA Lightning Sprints seemed to be another feature where it was not good to be in the lead. C.J. Malueg of Johnsburg, IL, who was in a tight three and even four-way battle for the top spot in the race's early going, inherited the lead with two laps left following a red flag. The stoppage came when John Kirk of Johnsburg, IL had his car roll onto its side going into turn one after losing a left-rear wheel on a restart after a caution.
Franksville's Derek Fortier, had the early lead, losing it to Pleasant Prairie's Mike Neau with 15 laps remaining after a red flag restart when Union Grove's Andrew Kiedrowski flipped in turn one. Kiedrowski was not injured. Fortier retook the front when Neau brought out a caution as he lost power while leading and retired to the pits.
The mechanical gremlins continued for the front runners when Fortier was not able to refire after the red flag for Kirk's incident. That put Malueg in front on the restart and he was able to maintain the lead to the checkered although he had engine problems in the closing laps he revealed in victory lane. Bristol's Adam Schroeder was second. Tim Brannam of Holiday Hills, IL third. Slinger's Jeff Schmidt fourth. Max Brannam of Holiday Hills, IL fifth.
"I didn't know if we'd make it to the finish when I got the lead because the motor was running hot and we were almost out of water, so I was afraid the engine might blow," admitted Malueg. "I'm glad it stayed together, but I felt bad for the guys in front of me who kept having problems. I'd much rather have raced them for it."
Genoa City's Mike Simons won his fourth Modified Feature of the season in a curfew shortened 11-lap main event. Simons took the lead from early pacesetter Jason Wirth of Elkhorn three laps into the feature after three cautions slowed the early pace. A red flag came out with 11 laps to go when David Powers of Woodlawn, TN, substitute driving for Lee Tibbitts, flipped in turn three with the mangled car landing upside down. Following an extensive clean up and having to carefully get Powers out, who walked to the ambulance for a checkup, set up a final restart attempt. Unfortunately, five cars tangled behind Simons bringing out a final caution.
With the curfew reached, the cars were lined up in their restart order with M. Simons taking the yellow/checkered first for the win. His younger bother Nick Simons of Genoa City started 9th and finished second. Waterford's Mike Wittenburg started tenth finishing third. Bristol's John Dost fourth. Tom Neubauer of Round Lake, IL started 11th finishing fifth.
"This isn't the way I'd like to get the win," said M. Simons, three-time Wilmot champion and current point leader . "I have to thank my sponsors and everybody who helps out. We'll be back next week."

Litt Snaps Nine-Year MSR Winless Drought At Berlin

MARNE, Mich. (July 30, 2022) – After a nine-year winless drought with the Must See Racing Engine Pro Sprint Car Series, Canadian Ryan Litt returned to victory lane in style Saturday night at Berlin Raceway.

The native of London, Ontario roared from 10th starting spot to take the lead on lap three, then held off every advance made by a determined Jason Blonde in the second half of the 30-lap Engine Pro Fast Car Dash main event en route to his second Must See Racing-sanctioned victory.

It was the first time Litt stood in victory lane with the series since March 22, 2013, when he won at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Fla.

“Fast time, start 10th and win the race – how about that?” a jubilant Litt told the standing-room-only crowd in victory lane. “We tried something new with the setup the last few weeks and it was just terrible. Tonight we decided to go back to our old notes and it was the best this car had run all year.

“From the first lap of practice today, I knew I had something for them,” Litt added. “It’s amazing to finally win again in the caliber of field that Must See (Racing) and Jim Hanks bring to the track each week. I’ve won a few races in the past, but this is definitely one of the sweetest victories we’ve had.”

After a roll of 10 on the inversion die placed past Must See Racing rookie-of-the-year Rick Holley on the pole, a chaotic opening lap saw National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Jeff Bloom surge from the outside pole into the lead before a multi-car accident on the frontstretch forced a yellow flag with one lap scored.

The incident saw Tom Jewell slap the outside wall exiting turn four before his blue No. 7 came down the track into the orange No. 48 of Jacob Dolinar, who spun to the bottom of the first turn in a cloud of smoke and was unable to restart – a broken frame ending his race prematurely.

When racing resumed, Bloom held serve briefly at the point before Litt came soaring forward, moving from third to first on the third lap before running out to as much as a four-second advantage just before halfway.

A lap-14 caution for debris did little to slow Litt’s roll, as he charged back away from the chasing No. 42 of Blonde on the restart. Instead, it was late lap traffic and a yellow with five laps left that gave Litt a scare.

A shredded tire on the rear of championship leader Charlie Schultz’s No. 9s forced Schultz to stop high in turn four from third place, putting a dent in the Ohioan’s title hopes and setting Blonde up with another chance at Litt in the closing moments.

However, Litt held serve – both on that restart and the final restart of the night following a Bobby Komisarski spin in turn two – leading the final five circuits comfortably en route to a 1.681-second win.

Blonde settled for second and admitted afterward that he burned up his equipment trying to catch the leader as the laps wound down.

“I just wore out the tires trying to get to him,” the Litchfield, Mich., native said. “It was a heck of a battle, though. He raced me hard, and it was all really clean. You love to be part of nights like that.”

Joe Liguori finished third and cut his deficit to Schultz down to a single point with two races remaining in the hunt for the season title. Rick Holley was a career-best fourth and Schultz rallied back for fifth.

Litt kicked off the program by ending Joe Liguori’s qualifying streak, setting fast time with his Diablo Chassis No. 07L at 13.097 seconds (120.257 mph). It marked Litt’s second fast time of the season and the sixth of his Must See Racing career.

The Canadian’s fast lap was also the quickest Must See Racing qualifying time recorded at Berlin since Aug. 19, 2017, when Bobby Santos III toured the seven-sixteenths-mile oval in 12.913 seconds.

Holley and Blonde won their respective eight-lap heat races prior to the main event.

The Must See Racing Sprint Car Series season continues Aug. 6 at Lorain (Ohio) Raceway Park with the inaugural Bob Frey Classic. The event will be streamed live in its entirety through SPEED SPORT TV.

Mintz finally gets 410 Fremont win; Macedo dominates GLSS field; Foos nabs 305 victory; Babcock wins truck thriller

Saturday, July 30, 2022

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Since opening night, Craig Mintz has not finished out of the top seven in the 410 sprints at Fremont Speedway. However, there has not been a victory. The Gibsonburg, Ohio driver put an end to that Saturday, July 30 at “The Track That Action Built,” leading all 30 laps to score his 15th career victory on Ohio Laborers Night.

It wasn’t easy for Mintz, who a week before got hit with a big chunk of mud and had to be taken for a check-up at the local hospital, as a caution with just two laps to go put DJ Foos right on his rear bumper. Mintz, a three time Fremont track champion, got an excellent restart but survived a last ditch slider from Foos and drove to his first win of the 2022 season.

“Give props to my race team. It’s a special night…Janet Holbrook gave $500 to fast time in memory of George Fisher and we’re running one of his race cars. Hats off to DJ…there’s not a lot of drivers out there like him who won’t just destroy the race car in that situation. He left me room and raced me clean. I didn’t get a good start so I knew it was coming,” said Mintz beside his Real Geese Decoys, KS Sales & Service, Modern Woodman of America, Design Graphics Group, Wonderly Carpet Care backed #09.

With his second place run Foos edged a little closer to Cole Macedo in the standings for the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group.

Macedo was upset with his performance in the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint feature but redeemed himself with a dominating performance in the Great Lakes Super Sprints (360c.i.) feature, leading all 25 laps and at one time had a half track lead. Macedo scored his sixth feature win of the season at Fremont – four 410 victories and a pair of GLSS wins to run his career total at the track to 10. It was his ninth overall victory in the Ray Brooks Racing entry in 2022.

“I really don’t know what happened. The first five or six laps we were really good and then I got really tight and burnt the brakes right off the thing. The last 10-15 laps I was all over the place. I’ve lost a race this year because I lost brakes and I didn’t want that to happen again. Almost gave it away quite a few times there. I’m pretty bummed out about the 410 show there. We have a good piece to take to the Trophy Cup,” said Macedo of his Fremont Auto Parts, Grant Decker Construction, Linder’s Speed Equipment, Gill Construction, CK Mechanical, ML Graphics, Catawba Island Club, Durst backed machine.

The Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints will open the Sandusky County Fair in August and in order to be eligible to compete in the event, drivers have had to compete in two weekly events at Fremont Speedway. So DJ Foos hoped in the Burmeister Racing 305 and after battling throughout the 25 lap feature with Jamie Miller, and a late race caution, held on for the win.

Miller lead the first 11 laps of the race with Foos taking over on lap 12. Miller used lapped traffic to regain the lead on lap 20 but a caution reverted back to the last fully scored lap, giving the top spot back to Foos who then held on for the win, the 24th of his career at the track.

Miller’s second place finish edge him closer to Paul Weaver in the NAPA of Bryan AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales standings.

“I’m very happy to be in victory lane. This has not been our year but we’re finding speed in the 410 deal. This is Mikey Sommers and LJ’s car with some Burmeister stuff on it. It’s a pretty good piece and we’re getting it tuned up and hopefully be standing up here for the fair,” said Foos beside his Sonny’s Signs, Kistler Racing Products, Burmeister Racing, Berryman Racing Shocks backed #16.

Jeff Babcock and Cory McCaughey put on a hell of a show in the Burmeister Trophy Dirt trucks, swapping the lead back and forth the last six laps before Babcock was able to drive to the win, the second of his career at the track. The race saw several lead changes with McCaughey leading the first lap, Dan Hennig leading lap two while McCaughey retook the lead from lap three to lap 13 before Babcock got by for a lap with McCaughey back out front on lap 15 with Babcock leading laps 16 and 17, McCaughey lap 18 and Babcock laps 19 and 20.

“Cory raced me very clean. That was a lot of fun to run side by side like that lap after lap and not hit each other. When we took the white I knew I had to go up top and block him and it worked out,” said Babcock of his Roelle Racing owned machine.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, August 6 with the 410 and 305 sprints and trucks in action.

DAUM LEADS FLAG TO FLAG FOR #MOWASPRINTS VICTORY AT MACON

Macon, IL (July 30, 2022) Reigning series champion Zach Daum returned to Macon Speedway on Saturday night and parked his #31 McGarry Motorsports machine in victory lane. Saturday’s event served as the series’ first visit back to Macon Speedway since 2020, when Daum last bested the field.

Trevin Littleton and Daum led the field of 18 cars to green. Taking the early race lead after battling Littleton for the top spot, it was smooth sailing for Daum as he raced towards his third career series victory.

Quickly navigating through lapped traffic, Daum used the other competitors to his advantage to expand his lead over the field. Trevin Littleton, while running second, became victim of circumstance to bring out a yellow flag after colliding with Caden Englehart on lap 14. Littleton rejoined the field before retiring early after spinning once more on lap 18.

Daum led back to green and continued to hold control over the field. Slater Helt inherited second after a 360-degree spin from Paul Nienhiser who dropped a few positions in the incident. Once more, a yellow flag was thrown over the field with five laps remaining with Jeremy Standridge slowing atop turn two.

A last ditch effort on the ensuing restart allowed Helt to pull up to Daum’s rear bumper but he was unable to capitalize. Daum cruised to victory for his first #MOWASprints victory of the 2022 season. Slater Helt, Cory Bruns, Brent Crews and Jacob Patton rounded out the top five.

The Morrow Brothers Ford MOWA Sprint Car Series will return to action on August 19, at Lincoln Speedway as a part of the “Night before the Mile” event on lllinois State Fair weekend.

McIntosh Masters Macon Speedway with POWRi National Midget League Win

Belleville, IL. (7/30/22) Cannon McIntosh would sweep the weekend winning Saturday night at Macon Speedway in the Sprint and Midget Nationals, earning his 13th career feature victory with the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League.

Early Macon Speedway competition with twenty-six POWRi National Midgets entered would see Jesse Love start the night off on the right step with a 10.772-second lap and notch the quickest hot-lap time as Michael Pickens, Jade Avedisian, and Cannon McIntosh would each earn heat racing victories with Bryant Wiedeman grabbing the semi-feature win.

Launching the field of stout competitors on the initial green flag would find high point qualifier Gavan Boschele line up with Chance Crum on the outside of the front row as Crum would use high side momentum to take the opening lap lead.

Battling to take the top spot on lap 5, Gavan Boschele would appear to be the fastest driver leading until the midway point. Sixth starting, Cannon McIntosh would mount a charge behind Boschele with Crum, Michael Pickens, and Daniel Adler all running inside the top five.

Overtaking for the lead, Cannon McIntosh would hold the front of the field for the remaining circuits as one time leading Gavan Boschele would suffer from a hard roll over when trying to race back to the front.

“The track was really tricky tonight. I knew we had to get to the front early and hold on late, but this was a really fun one. I can’t thank my crew enough.” Said a victorious Cannon McIntosh in the Macon Speedway Winners Circle.

Surging late, Jade Avedisian would fly through the field to notch runner up as Michael Pickens completed the features podium placements for the second night in a row. Early leader Chance Crum would finish the night fourth as hard charger Bryant Wiedeman rounded out the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League top-five finishers at Macon Speedway on Saturday Night.

NIENHISER WINS JACKSONVILLE; TIES ALL-TIME WINS RECORD

Jacksonville, Ill. (July 30, 2022) - It was a familiar face visiting victory lane on Friday Night at Jacksonville Speedway. Chapin, Illinois driver Paul Nienhiser pocketed the $3,000 payday in Friday’s A-Main during the inaugural running of #TheStandridge.

Zach Daum and Zach Hampton led the field to the green flag, with Daum upsetting his #31 McGarry Motorsports ride in the middle of the first corner, sliding him back to the fifth position as Hampton was able to pull away to a comfortable lead. The field entered lapped traffic by lap five and Hampton’s lead was shortened, allowing fifth-starting Paul Nienhiser to close in. Nienhiser was within four car lengths of Hampton, when the field slowed for a red flag on lap 8 when Brayton Lynch got upside down in turn one, collecting Austin Archdale. Both drivers were unhurt in the accident.

Returning to green flag action, Zach Hampton once again pulled away from the field. Nienhiser settled into second with Kyle Bellm, Ryan Bunton and Zach Daum running fifth. Shelby Bosie was quickly turning heads as the driver who started 11th had found some speed and was moving his way through the field, battling with Chris Urish for 7th, when once more the yellow flag was thrown over the field, stacking them up again for another restart. Fourth-running Ryan Bunton drew the caution with a left-rear flat tire. Bunton was able to rejoin the field and return to action.

Hampton’s lead extended again on the ensuing restart with the field racing in clean air. Piloting his #35 machine around the top shelf of Jacksonville Speedway with Paul Nienhiser in tow, the last thing that Hampton wanted to see again was a yellow flag as Zach Daum spun while running fourth on lap 15, setting up a restart with 10 laps remaining.

A ten lap shootout to determine the winner was about to commence. Hampton fired in the restart zone, but Nienhiser was quick on the draw as well, pulling alongside Hampton as the two flew down the backstretch. Shelby Bosie had moved forward from seventh, working past Trevin Littleton to battle with Kyle Bellm for third with a handful of laps remaining. Zach Hampton continued to lead, but quickly saw his reign come to an end as he collided with the turn one wall, ripping his right-rear tire away from his race car. Just as Hampton slowed in turn one, Slater Helt, who was running in 10th, got upside down in turn four to draw a red flag. Helt was uninjured in the rollover.

Inheriting the lead with seven laps remaining, Paul Nienhiser was looking for his first MOWA Sprints win of 2022, but it wasn’t going to be without a battle. Kyle Bellm was fighting back challenges from a hard charging Shelby Bosie, which in turn allowed Nienhiser to pull away from the rest of the field building a comfortable lead. Bellm and Bosie continued to battle for position with Trevin Littleton and Chris Urish waging war for the fourth spot. Nienhiser was working lap 22 as Caden Englehart slowed with a right-rear flat tire to re-rack the field for what was the final restart. Englehart rejoined the field after replacing his tire.

A single file restart with Nienhiser in front of the field, Bellm gained to set his sights on Nienhiser as he looked for his first career MOWA Sprints win. Nienhiser was able to fend off Bellm as he led the final three laps to pick up his first MOWA win of 2022. In doing so, he has tied Jerrod Hull with 22 all-time MOWA victories, tying him for the number one position. Kyle Bellm, Shelby Bosie, Trevin Littleton and Cory Bruns rounded out the top five. Further back in the field, Will Armitage drove his #7A machine to a 10th place finish after starting 21st, earning the BMRS Hard Charger Award.

Nienhiser exited his #9X in Victory Lane to a cheering crowd, with a big smile on his face. “This place is something special, this one has been a long-time coming as we are able to tie Jerrod at the top. It’s pretty neat as Scott (Bonar) is on the crew with me and he helped Jerrod win all of those races., said Nienhiser in Victory Lane.

The Morrow Brothers Ford MOWA Sprint Car Series makes their annual trip to Macon Speedway, in Macon, Illinois tonight, on July 30. All eyes will be on Paul Nienhiser as he now attempts to dethrone five-time champion Jerrod Hull at the top of the All-Time Wins List.

CAEDEN STEELE WINS FIRST CAREER OCEAN SPRINTS FEATURE AS YOUTH REIGN IN WATSONVILLE

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (July 29, 2022) – Fresno’s Caeden Steele won his first career Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo feature on Friday night in Watsonville, leading a podium of teenagers across the line at Ocean Speedway. Steele went back-and-forth with fast-time qualifier and dash winner Chase Johnson of Penngrove for the lead before Johnson spun in lapped traffic in the decisive moment of the event.

“It feels awesome. First sprint car (win). I knew it was coming this season,” Steele said. “Got it done tonight. Lapped traffic really helped us out. Kind of a bummer that Johnson spun out as we were having a great battle.”

Johnson led time trials over the 22 Ocean Sprints in attendance before winning the Trophy Dash to earn the pole for the feature. Steele jumped the initial start and was moved back to the outside of the second row. 2021 Rookie of the Year Bryce Eames of Santa Maria moved forward to the outside pole, but Johnson nabbed the lead at the drop of the green flag.

Steele drove past Eames on the backstretch on lap two to take second. Johnson led the field into lapped traffic before a caution for Bakersfield’s Brody Fuson in turn two. The field approached traffic again which allowed Steele an opportunity to pounce. He dove inside Johnson in turn one to take the lead on lap 13. Johnson made a bid on the outside on lap 15 but it was nullified when Jon De Wees of Lemoore stopped in turn two.

Castro Valley’s Jake Andreotti and Eames wrestled for third on the restart. Lapped traffic reared its head again on lap 20, allowing Johnson to close. He showed his nose in turn two on lap 20, then drove alongside Steele in turn one on lap 21. Both times Steele kept the lead.

A side-by-side battle saw Steele lead lap 23 by just .016 seconds. Johnson finally cleared Steele on the bottom of turn four to lead lap 24. Johnson then bounced off the rear of Adam Kaeding of Campbell in turn four on the following lap, sending him spinning and bringing out a caution.

Steele led the final six laps over Andreotti and Eames, for a combined podium age of 52 years young. Concord’s 17-year-old Joey Ancona and Fresno’s Craig Stidham rounded out the top-five. The Beer Optics Hard Luck went to Don Hart for being unable to start the feature.

Brentwood’s Blake Bower won his eighth Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction feature of 2022 in just his 12th try. Bower – the 2021 USAC and WMR champion – chased Concord’s Adam Teves over the first nine laps of the feature. The race was halted on lap five when 16-year-old Mattix Salmon of Fresno flipped in turn three in his series debut while running fourth. He was uninjured.

Bower took over the lead on lap 10 and paced Teves the rest of the way. Lodi’s Nate Wait, Oakley’s Bryant Bell, and Moorpark’s Todd Hawse were the top-five finishers. Teves and Wait split the eight lap heat races.

Santa Maria’s Markus Frazier won his third Ocean Speedway IMCA Sport Modified feature of the season. The 20-lap race started with pole sitter Max Baggett of Prunedale spinning in turn four, collecting Andrew Pearce of Oakley for a caution. The complete restart shuffled Chuck Golden of Pittsburg onto the pole position, but Frazier drove around the outside to take the lead.

Jonathan Hagio of Prunedale and Golden battled for second before a caution on lap three for Freedom’s Cody Bryan spinning in turn two. Frazier led the pack into lapped traffic. He opened up the bottom on a few occasions in turn four but Hagio was unable to complete the pass.

A two-by-two duel developed for second position while Fraizer drove ahead for the win. Oakley’s Jacob Mallet, Jr. advanced from eighth to second followed by Hagio, Golden, and Jason Ryan, Jr.

Jason Lazzerini of Moss Landing led all 20-laps for the Four Bangers feature win ahead of an 18-car starting field. Lazzerini had pressure from Sean DePriest of Dinuba throughout the first half of the race, then fended off Watsonville’s Richard Mitchell in the closing stages. Lazzerini, Mitchell, DePriest, 11th starting Kenny Stragalinos of Boulder Creek, and TJ Santos of Gilroy were the top-five finishers. Felton’s Nicole Beardsley was honored as the 2022 champion as well.

Roy Iller of San Benito Sheriffs ended a championship season in Police-in-Pursuit with a main event victory. The 15-lap season finale lineup was set based on donations to the Northern California Special Olympics. Capitola Police Officer Jackie Yeung won a battle of the Ford Mustangs to top John Hohmann of Scotts Valley Police for the second position at the finish. Kyle Wowak of Santa Cruz Corrections suffered a hard crash battling for third but was uninjured.

Ocean Speedway races again this Friday night with the Hall of Fame Night, featuring Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo, IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Mods, Hobby Stocks, and South Bay Dwarf Cars.

Jonathan Preston Gets by Steve Glover Late to Win His First PST A-Main of the Season

Contact: Paul Harkenrider

(Dundee, NY) Despite a newly configured race track from the last time the Patriot Sprint Tour visited Outlaw Speedway in Mid-May, the 2022 edition of the Outlaw Summer Nationals did not disappoint as Jonathan Preston got by Steve Glover on turn four coming to the white flag.

Denny Peebles and Jared Zimbardi would bring the 16-car field to the green flag, with Peebles taking the lead on the first lap. However, Steve Glover, who started third, rode the bottom lane of the race track and took the lead from Peebles on lap three.

Fourth Starter Jonathan Preston would find a lot of speed on top of turn two flying down the back stretch to get by Peebles and Zimbardi for the runner-up position.

Glover and Preston would begin exchanging battles for the lead in the first half of the race, but it was Glover hanging on and blocking whichever way Preston was trying to go. It allowed Paulie Colagiovanni and Scott Kreutter to throw their hands into the mix, where it quickly became a four-car battle for the lead.

On lap ten, Preston would attempt to roll the top side but overcooked the corner, allowing Glover to build an advantage again over the rest of the field. Preston was able to maintain his runner-up position, but Colagiovanni and Kreutter were also right there looking to advance.

As laps continued to click by, Glover would maintain his lead, but Preston was able to gain back some ground lap by lap.

Then on lap 23, as Glover and Preston were coming to the white flag, Preston slipped by Glover for the lead and took home his first win of 2022 and second career win with the tour. Glover would finish second while Kreutter held for third over Paulie Colagiovanni and Jared Zimbardi, who completed the top five.

Heat race winners were Denny Peebles and Steve Glover, while the Bonnell’s Rod Shop Dash for Cash went to Dave Axton.

Current Point leader Davie Franek started eighth and finished seventh, while rookie driver Dalton Rombough who started seventh, finished tenth.

The next race will be back at Woodhull Raceway on Saturday, August 13, for the second time this season. For more information, please visit patriotsprinttour.com and connect with our social media outlets on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

FRIDAY NIGHT WMR ACTION AT OCEAN SPEEDWAY GOES TO BOWER

Watsonville, Calif. (July 29, 2022) – Brentwood’s Blake Bower won his eighth Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction feature of 2022 in just his 12th try on Friday night. Bower – the 2021 USAC and WMR champion – won at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville to kick off a double header weekend of stock production Midget racing in Northern California.

Concord’s Adam Teves and Lodi’s Nate Wait split the eight lap heat races. Shawn Arriaga tumbled in his heat race and was unable to start the feature in Cameron Beard’s No. 42 entry.

Teves led Bower over the first nine laps of the feature in an exciting battle between the Felkins-owned No. 35s of Teves and the Boscacci-owned No. 9 of Bower.

The race was halted on lap five when 16-year-old Mattix Salmon of Fresno flipped in turn three. Salmon was uninjured but his series debut ended after running fourth in the feature.

Bower took over the lead on lap 10 and paced Teves the rest of the way. Lodi’s Nate Wait, Oakley’s Bryant Bell, and Moorpark’s Todd Hawse were the top-five finishers.

Western Midget Racing moves on to Petaluma Speedway on Saturday night supporting the Sprint Car Challenge Tour. Fans can check out the action live on FloRacing.

Cannon McIntosh Cruises to POWRi National Midget League Jacksonville Speedway Win
Belleville, IL. (7/29/22) Cannon McIntosh would once again run to the front of the field to claim the checkers at Jacksonville Speedway Friday night earning his eleventh career feature victory with the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League.

Early Jacksonville Speedway competition with the POWRi National Midgets would see Jade Avedisian start the night off quickest by clocking a 12.214-second lap and notch the quickest hot-lap time as Mitchell Davis, Gavan Boschele, and Cannon McIntosh each would earn heat racing victories.

Launching the field of twenty competitors on the initial green flag would find high point qualifier Mitchell Davis line up with Gavan Boschele on the outside of the front row as Davis would take the opening lap racing lead.

Challenged early and often, Mitchell Davis would battle feverishly and appear to be in winning form with Cannon McIntosh quickly closing from starting third as Gavan Boschele, Michael Pickens, and Brenham Crouch stayed within striking distance.

Taking control with nine laps remaining, Cannon McIntosh would not be denied in his sixth feature win of the season with Brenham Crouch gaining in the waning laps. McIntosh would hold steady up front to earn the hard-fought feature win.

“We really had to work for this one, the team gave me a good car but something wasn’t right to start the night. We thrashed after hot laps to get everything into shape and my team gave me the best car possible, I had to work for it but this was a lot of fun” said Cannon McIntosh in the Jacksonville Speedway Victory Lane.

Fending off all competitors late, Cannon McIntosh would emerge victorious with Brenham Crouch settling into finishing runner-up as Michael Pickens completed the features podium finishers. One-time leader Mitchell Davis would finish the night fourth as Zach Daum rounded out the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League top-five finishers at Jacksonville Speedway on Friday Night.

Macedo has a great point night with 410 AFCS win at Attica; Shiels continues great late models season; Weaver earns 67th career 305 victory

Friday, July 29, 2022

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Cole Macedo has struggled the last six events at Attica Raceway Park, managing a pair of seventh place finishes as his best performances. His crew chief Steven Linder went to work and it paid off Friday, July 29 as the Lemoore, California native drove to a dominating performance for his second 410 sprint win of the season at the track on Kear’s Speed Shop/Sutton Bank/The Adkins Group Night presented by Integrity Auto and Truck Sales of Bucyrus.

The victory, coupled with mechanical woes for Trey Jacobs put Macedo back into the point lead for the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints at Attica and gave him a huge cushion in the battle for the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group title. Macedo’s fourth career win at Attica is his eighth overall victory in 2022 aboard the Ray Brooks Racing #18.

“Here lately at Attica I haven’t had the most confidence in myself and in my car. Me and Steven actually got into a little bit last week…just hot tempers…just couldn’t get going here. But man he did his homework this week and made this thing really nice. These guys were in my way out there he had it so good. Really easy to drive like that when your car is really nice so thanks to him for getting us better and regaining that point lead and putting on a show. What a year….I can’t thank Ray Brooks enough. He and his family are here tonight. He gives us the equipment that it takes to win races,” said Macedo beside his Fremont Auto Parts, Grant Decker Construction, Linder’s Speed Equipment, Gill Construction, CK Mechanical, ML Graphics, Catawba Island Club, Durst backed machine.

Britton, Michigan’s Devin Shiels has put together a phenomenal 2022 season in the Dirt Nerds Podcast/Propane.com UMP Late Models. The track’s 2017, 2020 and 2021 late model champion led the second half of the feature to score his third win of the year at Attica. It is his 13th career victory at the track placing him sixth on the all-time division win list.

In the nine late model A-mains at Attica in 2022, Shiels has three wins, five second place finishes and a fifth.

“Seconds were getting bad. It’s a shame when you go home with a second and you’re disappointed. Jason through on a bunch of stuff on the car for the feature and it seemed to pay off. This car is a 2018 and it’s holding in their strong,” said Shiels beside his Magic Fountain Auto Wash, Rally’s Hamburgers, Dundee Products, Banshee Graphics, Salenbein Trucking & Excavating backed #51.

Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver dominated the Fremont Fence 305 Sprint A-main, leading all 25 laps for his third win of the season. It’s the five time division champion’s 67th career victory in the 305 sprints and 70th total wins at the track. Weaver has six total wins in 2022, also recording three at Fremont Speedway.

With the win, Weaver, who hasn’t finished out of the top four all season at Attica, regains the point lead by a narrow margin over defending track champion Jamie Miller who finished second in the feature. The win did give Weaver a little more breathing room in the chase for the title of the NAPA of Bryan Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales.

“When you’re leading you get paranoid and you hear things…the motor is going to blow up and the tire is going to go flat. You hear all kinds of stuff. You have to have a good tire at the end. You can’t run the middle of the track and burn it up trying to pass two lapped cars. It don’t make sense. As you get older you learn a few things,” said Weaver beside his Steve Brown’s B&B Drain Service, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Seagate Sandblasting, Fostoria Mod Shop backed #31.

In the 30-lap 410 sprint feature, Caleb Griffith jumped into the early lead over eight time track champion Byron Reed, TJ Michael, Macedo and DJ Foos. A caution on lap three wiped out a big lead for Griffith as did another yellow on laps seven and 10. On the restart following the last caution, Macedo pounced pulling alongside and then taking the lead.

Macedo pulled away and only a caution for Griffith with six laps to go gave the rest of the field a chance. Macedo executed a great restart and drove away for the win over Foos, 13th starter Travis Philo, Reed and Craig Mintz.

Ken Hahn led the first 11 laps of the late model A-main that was plagued by six cautions. Shiels drove into the top spot on lap 12 and survived a late race rally from Ryan Missler for the win with Ryan Markham, Mike Bores and Hahn rounding out the top five.

Weaver and Jamie Miller – who account for 100 combined 305 feature wins at Attica – brought the field to green for the 25 lap A-main. Weaver bolted into the lead in a race that had only one caution, a lapped car spun right in front of the leader on lap nine.

Weaver was never challenged for the lead as Miller, a charging Matt Foos, Bryan Sebetto and Mike Keegan rounded out the top five.

Attica Raceway Park will be off a couple of weeks for the Attica Independent Fair but will resume action on Friday, Aug. 19 with the AFCS 410 and 305 sprints and late models in action.

Klay, Lewis, and O’Connor grab feature wins, Sherman, and Mueller crowned champions at Limaland.

Lima, OH

July 29, 2022

By Gerry Keysor

Perfect weather greeted teams and fans on Friday night for the final points event of the season at Limaland Motorsports Park. No. 17J Jarrod Klay grabbed his first Lock Sixteen Thunderstock feature win, No. 34X Shane O’ Connor picked up the Northwest Physical Therapy DIRTcar UMP Modified victory, and No. 41 Ricky Lewis bagged the Non-Wing Sprint Car A Main. No. 65 Todd Sherman wrapped up the championship in the Modfieds, and No. 4m Gabe Mueller sealed up the Thunderstock championship.

Kicking off racing action were the Lock Sixteen Thunderstocks in their 15 lap A Main. Jarrod Klay and No. J1 Jeff Matheny made up the front row for the 15-lap feature. Klay and Matheny would battle throughout the first half of the feature before mechanical woes would force Matheny to retire from the event. Lots of beating and banging behind the leader kept things interesting, but in the end, it was Klay holding off No. 25 Nick Bowers for the win, No. 72 Wayne Gibson would finish 3rd, No 74D Craig Dippman 4th, and No 22T Tony Anderson 5th. No. 4m Gabe Mueller would finish in the 6th position and is the 2022, Lock Sixteen Thunderstock/Advance Auto Parts NASCAR Weekly Series Track Champion.

Next up were the Non-Wing Sprint Cars for their 25-lap feature event. No. 21B Ryan Barr and No. 41 Ricky Lewis would bring the field to the initial green flag, with Barr grabbing the early lead. Lewis would get the Dave Stensland owned No. 41 wound up and head to the front on lap 2. No. 20 Tayte Williamson would close on the leaders early, moving to 3rd on lap 5 and to 2nd on lap 7, but that would be as close as he would get as Lewis would win the A Main over Williamson, No 9N Luke Hall would charge to 3rd with No. 53 Steve Little finishing 4th, and No 87 Paul Dues completing the Top 5.

Wrapping up racing action were the Northwest Physical Therapy DIRTcar UMP Modifieds in their 20-lap feature event. No. 36 Brandon Vaughan and No. 34X Shane O’Connor would make up the front row with O’Connor taking the early lead. Vaughan would stalk O’Connor throughout the race, trying to grab his 2nd victory in a row, but mechanical issues would arise on Vaughan’s No 36 on the final lap, relegating him to a 15th place finish. O’Connor would grab the victory over No. 16 Jeff Koz, No. 65 Todd Sherman, No 95J Jerry Bowersock, and No 9PG Percy Gendreau. Sherman’s 3rd place finish sealed the 9th Northwest Physical Therapy/Advance Auto Parts NASCAR Weekly Series track championship of his career.

Limaland Motorsports Park roars back to life one final time next Friday, August 5th for the Annual Awards Celebration, Invitational Races, and King of the Quarter Mile events presented by K&L Ready Mix.

Justin Sanders Doubles Up 2022 Speedweek Northwest Winning Account At CGS With Wednesday Night Victory

Cottage Grove, Oregon- Cottage Grove Speedway was in action for the second straight night for Speedweek Northwest on Wednesday, July 27th. It was the fifth round of the series in six days. Twenty-six teams were in attendance from the states of Oregon, Washington, California, and Idaho, as well as the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta.

Jacksonville's Tanner Holmes sprinted out to the early lead when the action got started for the main event. Unfortunately, Holmes had to deal with a pair of restarts without issue in the first couple of laps. Then, on an eighteen-circuit green flag run, Tanner briefly went off the top of the first set of turns, allowing Justin Sanders to overtake him.

Sanders, from Aromas, California, and racing for the Mittry Motorsports team, rocketed out in front of the rest of the competition on lap ten. He also had to deal with two restarts in the final ten laps, which did not give him any issues.

There would be a brief heartstopping moment when Justin briefly got together with a lapped car on the final lap.

Fortunately for Justin Sanders, he would resume the role as the trailblazer and score his second straight win of the week. He is the first repeat victor of Speedweek Northwest 2022 and now has three total triumphs to his total with the tour.

Tanner Holmes rallied to the runner-up position while Cottage Grove native Kinzer Cox posted a third-place result. Kelly Miller from Coaldale, Alberta, and Logan Forler, of Boise, Idaho, were fourth and fifth in the finishing order. Everett, Washington driver Corbyn Fauver was the B Main winner.

The Western Sprint Tour's Speedweek Northwest returns at Cottage Grove Speedway on Friday, July 29th, for the first of two nights of the Marvin Smith Memorial Grove Classic. For more information, check out the Western Sprint Tour Facebook page.

Chase Randall Wins Dubuque Slugfest for Fourth Sprint Invaders Win of the Season!

(Bill W) Dubuque, IA, July 27, 2022 – Chase Randall continued his winning ways with the Sprint Invaders Wednesday night at the Dubuque Fairgrounds Speedway. The Waco, Texas driver had to earn his $2,000 payday, running the high reaches of the 1/3-mile bullring to perfection in another classic duel in Dubuque.

Scott Bogucki led early coming from row two in the Fossil Racing #26. Tanner Gebhardt, Jamie Ball and Randall followed. Randall quickly over took Ball for third, while Riley Goodno moved into the top four. On lap four, a Goodno pass of Randall was negated when Chase Richards spun to bring a caution.

Bogucki led the field back to green, but Richards slowed again to bring the caution. That was a break for Bogucki, who got off to a slow restart. Paul Nienhiser jumped up to fourth when green fell again, with Cody Wehrle also moving into the top five.

Randall hit the far high side of the track, sometimes making contact with the walls. On lap six, he passed Gebhardt for second, and Nienhiser followed him into third on lap eight.

Bogucki set the pace on the low side, but heard Randall challenging up high. The leader switched his line, going to the top on lap 13. Randall would slide under Bogucki to take the advantage. A lap later, Nienhiser used the high side to move past Bogucki into second.

On lap 16, Nienhiser stuck the bottom of one and two to pass Randall for the lead, only to have the move negated when Goodno slowed. With ten laps to go, Randall led Nienhiser, Bogucki, Gebhardt and Wehrle back to green.

Though Gebhardt and Bogucki exchanged third, Randall’s line around the wall carried his momentum to the checkers. Nienhiser finished second for the sixth time this season with the Sprint Invaders, and was followed by Bogucki, Wehrle and Gebhardt. Colton Fisher, Ball, Ryan Jamison, Tom Lenz and Devin Wignall rounded out the top ten. Bogucki, Goodno and Randall won heats. Bogucki also claimed the Dash.

“This is an awesome track,” said Randall in Victory Lane. “It was really good in the heats, with cushions on each end. I wasn’t really sure what the track prep would do for the feature, but it turned out really racy. It kind of slowed the top down to where the bottom could keep up. The bottom was really good, but I just had to run the top to keep my momentum up, and keep making speed. Paul showed his nose there right before the caution, and I had to figure out how to run one and two better.”

“We kind of fought a little bit of motor trouble since hot laps,” said Nienhiser. “We tried about everything we had in the trailer to fix that. We really couldn’t figure it out, so to start sixth and challenge for the win surprised me a little bit. Scott (Bonar) always has the car good. Being down a little power and the way the track was…my experience paid off there. The yellow came out at the worst time for us. I really needed to keep running in traffic.”

“We were good,” said Bogucki. “Everyone told me before it was going to be around the fence, or around the bottom. I was getting good drive off the corners, and within a lap, Chase went by me. Paul went by me on the bottom, and I went back there. That was no good either. We were sputtering fuel maybe the last five laps, but we were coming. It was too late by then. They did a great job. Wish I could have done better for the boys, but tonight we were third.”

The Sprint Invaders next action will be Saturday August 20, at the Peoria Speedway in Peoria, Illinois, and on Sunday, August 21 at the Adams County Speedway in Quincy, Illinois. For more information on the Sprint Invaders, visit www.SprintInvaders.org or look us up on Facebook.

Justin Sanders Wins Tuesday Night Speedweek Northwest Bout At CGS

Cottage Grove, Oregon- Cottage Grove Speedway experienced temperatures north of 100 degrees Fahrenheit on Tuesday, July 26th. Twenty-seven teams were in the pits representing the states of Oregon, Washington, California, and Idaho, as well as the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta.

Justin Sanders took off on the initial green to pick up the lead on the opening lap. The Aromas, California racer, driving for the Mittry Motorsports team, had to deal with several stoppages, including one red flag and five yellow flag incidents. But on every restart, Sanders was perfect and could construct sizable leads.

Despite all the slow down periods and some occasional heavy-lapped traffic, no one seemed to have anything for Justin. Finally, however, Justin Sanders would dominate the race to win his first race of the week and his second career Speedweek Northwest victory. His previous triumph was in 2019 at Cottage Grove Speedway.

Cottage Grove's Kinzer Cox had a brilliant run to finish in second, while Tanner Holmes of Jacksonville placed third. Logan Forler, from Boise, Idaho, posted a fourth-place result over fifth finishing Redding, California native Chase Majdic, driving for car owner Adam Main. Matt Hein, in the Brett Smith-owned entry, was the winner of the consolation feature.

The Western Sprint Tour's Speedweek Northwest remains at Cottage Grove Speedway on Wednesday, July 27th. For more information, check out the Western Sprint Tour Facebook page.

Tanner Holmes Wins Round 3 Of Speedweek Northwest At SSP

 Banks, Oregon- After taking Sunday off, the Western Sprint Tour resumed Speedweek Northwest 2022 on Monday, July 25th. The series visited Sunset Speedway Park for its third race of the series. The Banks Bullring attracted teams from the states of Oregon, Washington, California, and Idaho, as well as the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta.

When the main event started, Logan Forler was the initial race leader. Unfortunately, the Boise, Idaho racer would have to give the top spot back as an incident occurred before the first lap could be completed. On the second attempt, Tanner Holmes from Jacksonville pounced out to P1.

A long twenty-lap green flag run would develop, resulting in heavy lapped traffic coming into the mix. Despite navigating through the field's tail end, Holmes mastered the ¼-mile oval and created a massive lead. But unfortunately, his hard work would be erased when the second and final yellow flag appeared with ten laps to go.

On the final restart, Tanner Holmes had no issues whatsoever. He went on to win the main event and earn his first career Speedweek Northwest victory. He is the sixth different driver to win a Speedweek race at SSP.

Logan Forler was a respectable second, while placing third was Justin Sanders, from Aromas, California, in the Mittry Motorsports-fielded entry. Coaldale, Alberta, Canada chauffeur Kelly Miller was fourth in the finishing order, with fifth going to Jesse Schlotfeldt of Arlington, Washington.

The Western Sprint Tour's Speedweek Northwest heads to Cottage Grove Speedway on Tuesday, July 26th, and Wednesday, the 27th. For more information, check out the Western Sprint Tour Facebook page.

Pirtek Renegades  Jim Falls, WI, July 22, 2022

The Pirtek Renegades winged sprints traveled a bit deeper into central Wisconsin for their second of two consecutive nights of competing in the Badger state with a Friday venture to the Eagle Valley Speedway in Jim Falls. Twenty teams checked in to do battle on the ⅜ mile clay oval, with Patrick Heikkinen, Casey Lang, and Luke Nellis claiming the three heat race wins. Jack Berger led all drivers with 146 passing points, charging up from last to second in the opening heat race.

Berger and Nellis redrew the front row for the main event, pacing the field to green for their twenty-lap feature. Just like the prior evening, the feature was noteworthy due a driver starting deep in the field having an impressive run forward. Coming off his win the previous evening at Thunder Hill Speedway, Mike Mueller started in row nine, and passed cars at a pace of nearly one per lap. Up front, it was Berger collecting his second sticker of ‘22, who also won in his only other UMSS race of the summer, July 2, at CLS. Chasing Berger to the stripe were Jesse Glenz, Nellis, Mueller, and Brady Donnohue.

The Pirtek Renegades return to their home track this weekend, July 30, when the winged sprints hit the high banks of Cedar Lake Speedway. More information on upcoming events for the Pirtek Renegades, as well as links to other Renegades series, can be found at www.umsprints.com, or on facebook.

Pirtek Renegades    Menomonie, WI, July 21, 2022

The winged sprints of the Pirtek Renegades, following the lead of the traditional sprints last month, made their first ever appearance at the Thunder Hill Speedway in Menomonie, Wisconsin on Thursday night. An impressive 15 teams clogged the pits at the ⅛ mile bullring.

The teams split into four heats, with two cars advancing from each heat, and two more qualifiers coming from the b-feature. Heat race wins went to Trevor Reding, Chase Viebrock, Mike Mueller, and Chippewa Falls late model pilot Jesse Glenz showing off his versatility - having competed in late models, modifieds, traditional sprints, and now winged sprints this summer. Viebrock also won the 8-lap dash to earn the pole for the 40-lap main event.

Viebrock and Reding paced the 10-car feature field to green with Viebrock looking for the three-race sweep and taking command early. The race was notable for impressive charges through the field by Cam Schafer - the last qualifier from the b-main, and eighth starting Chris Graf. The duo took advantage of the wide and racy track to finish in the top four, but the race belonged to Viebrock, with Mueller, Schafer, Graf, and Glenz rounding out the top five. Unfortunately, Viebrock’s #50 hotrod failed post-race technical inspection and was disqualified - making Mike Mueller the winner. The win also crowned Mueller King of the Hill with the season sweep at Thunder Hill, having won the traditional contest back in June.

Tatnell, Taylor and Bosma Record Victories During Nordstrom's Automotive Night at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (July 24, 2022) - Brooke Tatnell, Shaun Taylor and Brandon Bosma stood atop the podium on Sunday during Nordstrom's Automotive Night at Huset's Speedway.

The nightcap of the program featured a wild finish as Tatnell led only one lap - the final one - during the Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig main event. Justin Henderson paced the field for the first 24 laps during a race that featured a trio of restarts in the final five laps.

The final caution of the feature set up a green-white-checkered finish and 12th-starting Ryan Timms darted from third to second in turns one and two before he slid Henderson for the top spot in turn four as the white flag was being waved. Henderson turned underneath Timms to regain the lead before the flag stand. Both drivers entered turn one low and slid up the track into turn two.

The battle for the top spot was side by side as the duo exited the corner, but contact forced both drivers sideways and toward the infield down the backstretch. That allowed Tatnell to drive by for the lead entering turn three and win by 0.731 seconds.

"You can never give up," he said. "Don't ever give up until the checkered flag drops. It's awesome for this team. I've won races that way. I've lost races that way. The scoreboard says No. 16 up front."

Austin McCarl also capitalized by maneuvering into second place during the last-lap incident.

"This was old school Huset's," he said. "That was awesome. That was a fun race. The race track was awesome. I wish we could have this every week, banging the fence. That was some of the most fun, intense racing I've had in a long time."

Henderson rebounded from the contact to finish third.

"I felt like I protected as well as I could," he said. "It is what it is. We'll come back harder and stronger next time."

Points leader Matt Juhl finished fourth and Brendan Mullen recorded a fifth-place result.

Tatnell set quick time during qualifying before Riley Goodno, Kaleb Johnson and Ian Madsen posted heat race victories.

Taylor led the distance of the 18-lap Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks A Main, yet it was anything but smooth sailing. Most of the race featured a three-car battle for the top spot. It became a two-car tussle up front midway through the race when Colby Klaassen caught the wall.

Defending track champion Cory Yeigh was all over Taylor as both drivers fought for the bottom groove, battling within three tenths of a second for the final handful of laps. Traffic appeared in the closing circuits and points leader Zach Olivier joined the race for the win, but Taylor hit his marks to win by 0.923 seconds.

"I built a new car this year and we were three weeks late getting out," he said. "I've been racing this track since 2005 and we never missed an opener. For the first five weeks this year we came out with fuel pressure problems. This is a brand new car from the bottom to the top. Come to find out it was my fault. I overlooked something. I've got to thank my pit crew. I've got to thank my sponsors, everybody that stood behind me up to this point. People didn't quit coming. People kept showing up."

Yeigh narrowly held off Olivier for the runner-up position. Aaron Foote ended fourth and Ron Howe placed fifth.

Taylor and Foote each won a heat race.

Bosma hustled from the eighth starting position and led the final two laps to garner his third Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series triumph of the season at Huset's Speedway.

"That was a lot of fun," he said. "I looked up at the board with five to go and I seen Long Hair (John Lambertz) was leading. I started tracking him down and tracking him down. I knew I was going to get him with about three to go. I was really catching him there.

"Long Hair is probably the best driver out here to run the bottom. Luckily the bottom was really, really good in one and two and the top was really good in three and four. I was lucky enough to find the top there and we're here in Victory Lane finally."

John Lambertz led the first 18 laps of the non-stop 20-lap main event before Bosma found momentum on the top side of the track. He drove into third place on Lap 12 and into the runner-up position on Lap 14. Bosma closed in more than two seconds on Lambertz, who was committed to the bottom groove. Bosma took the lead exiting turn four as the white flag was waved and pulled away to win by 1.371 seconds.

Lambertz placed second with Bayley Ballenger rounding out the podium. Lee Goos Jr. finished fourth and Koby Werkmeister was fifth.

The heat races were won by Lambertz and Blaine Stegenga.

The next event at Huset's Speedway is Sunday for Heiman Fire Equipment Night featuring Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig, the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series and the Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks.

I-35 Speedway, Winston Mo.
07-23-2022
By: Phillip Wilson, Track Announcer

One hundred and two cars checked in for Seeburg Mufflers night at I-35 Speedway. Drivers, crews, fans and track personnel braved the hot temperatures for some exciting side-by-side racing.

The USAC Midwest Wingless Racing Association checked in for the first time in 2022 and the eighth time overall. "Cool Hand" Luke Howard dominated the 20-lap feature for his second career MWRA feature win. Chris Parkinson would race his way up to a second-place finish. Wyatt Burks, who missed the heat race due to an engine change, would start 17th in the feature and race his way up to third. Chad Goff challenged for the lead early in the race and finished fourth. Brian Beebe rebounded from an earlier mishap to finish fifth.

In E-Mod action, Casey Burnett picked up his 11th feature win of the season. Adam Dunwoodie found some speed on the high side, but as he tried to pass Burnett for the lead, a caution flag would hold him back to second place. Dunwoodie would finish second, followed by good runs by Andrew Thomas, AJ Sayers and Blake Hayes.

Johnny Price would lead every lap, capturing his first career Pure Stock feature win. Nicholas Bonnett would rebound from an earlier spin on lap 1 to finish second. Points leader Ava Dixon would race her way into a third-place finish, followed by Tommy Luft and Ryan Hinkle rounding out the top 5.

In the Midwest Limited Late Models, Houston Johson would find some high side hustle as he slipped past then race leader Ed Noll about 5 laps into their 20-lap feature. Noll would hold on for second. After a great side-by-side battle, Paul Glendenning would finish third, with Tommy Cordray fourth and Brad Dibben fifth.

In the USRA B-Mods, points leader Tyler Cadwallader would roar from his front row starting spot to pick up his fifth feature win of the season at I-35 Speedway. Corey Myers, who is in a points battle with Cadwallader, would finish second. The USRA B-Mod points leader Shadren Turner would finish third, followed by Michael Taylor III and Darrion McLaughlin with good runs in fourth and fifth.

USRA Stock Car points leader Doug Keller would bring a new car and a new number to I-35 Speedway and pick up his third feature win of the season. Jason Newman would make his first trip to I-35 Speedway in 2022 a good one as he finished second. Chris Mercer would have another good run finishing third, followed by Jason Estes and track points leader Nic Hanes.

In USRA Modified action, Lee Hibner would lead the entire 20 lap event to pick up his second feature win of the season. Track points leader Tyler Hibner would see his four-race win streak snapped by his old man as he finished second. They were followed by good runs from Houston Johnson, Tyler Grooms and Chad Lyle in the top five.

Isaiah Penton would start the season on fire in the Sport Compacts, only to be cooled off for the last month. Saturday night, Penton got back to his winning ways as he picked up his 7th feature win of the season. Second went to Sport Compact points leader Brad Mick, with third to Jonathan Hartman would have another outstanding run. Fourth and fifth went to Scott Beagle and Harold Robb Sr.

Congratulations to Fan of the Week winner Fenton Bonnett, sponsored by MWRA, Wyatt Burks Racing, Houston Johnson Racing, BF Racing, Shadren Turner Racing and Noll Racing.

Shawn Donath Scores First Career Patriot Sprint Tour Win at Woodhull Raceway

(Woodhull, NY) A competitive field of cars was in attendance Saturday night at Woodhull Raceway, including former champions and rookie contenders for 2022. In the end, Shawn Donath rose to the top to score his first career win at Woodhull Raceway and his first in PST Competition.

Bryan Howland returned to Sprint Car racing driving for Tommy Wickham, and he would start alongside PST Rookie of the year contender Dalton Rombough in the 25-lap A-Main.

After about a 90-minute rain delay, the drivers would hit the track with the expectation that the track would be extremely fast.

Rombough would take the early lead with Howland trailing with Chuck Hebing and Jared Zimbardi, all contesting for a runner-up position as Rombough would continue to pull away.

As the first few laps continued to click by, Donath would also throw his hand into the mix, getting by Zimbardi and Hebing racing the bottom lane.

The first caution would come out on lap four when Blake Warner would be slow going down the front stretch, and it would restack the field with Rombough still leading over Howland, Donath, Hebing, and Davie Franek, who started eighth, restarting in the top five.

On the next restart, Howland would try again to get by Rombough, but the rookie held his line and was much faster in the straightaways.

Donath had a car that could be placed anywhere in, which he used to get Howland for second and could begin tracking down the leader.

It was on lap 14 when Rombough was running down the backstretch and would make contact with Jordan Hutton, who lost power entering turn three. It would result in Rombough losing his front nose wing and the ability to handle his car through the tight corners. As a result, Donath would take over the race lead on lap 15.

Rombough would start to fall back in the field and settle for a sixth-place finish.

In the end, Donath would go on to win his first career A-Main with the Patriots at the Woodhull Raceway over Bryan Howland and Chuck Hebing. Current point leader Davie Franek drew eighth and could reach the top five by finishing fourth. Kyle Drum came on late after starting 14th and finished fifth.

It was great to see Jordan Thomas back in a sprint car after a scary incident at Fonda Speedway a month ago, stay on the platinum tour, and take home an 11th place finish.

There was no Bonnell’s Rod Shop dash to keep the program moving after the rain delay, but heat races went to Jonathan Preston and Bryan Howland.

Next on tour is this Friday at Outlaw Speedway for the Outlaw Summer Nationals paying $3,500 to win. Please visit www.patriotsprinttour.com for continued updates to follow the Patriot Sprint Tour on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Turner, Dryden, Bailey, & Yorke Win on Core-Mark Wall of Fame & Fan Appreciation Night

By Brent Otchere

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (July 22, 2022) – Core-Mark presented Wall of Fame and Fan Appreciation Night on July 22 at Ohsweken Speedway; Cory Turner, Darren Dryden, Dave Bailey, & Eric Yorke took victories in their A-Main events, while fans got to meet their favourite drivers and witness the new Wall of Fame inductees receive their well-deserved honours.

Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars
Cory Turner and Dylan Westbrook led the 24 car field to green to start the 20 lap 360 Sprint Car A-Main. Turner lost the lead to Westbrook in the opening laps, only to have Cory challenge for the lead once more until an early caution stopped his momentum. A second caution came out due to Liam Martin and Mikey Kruchka colliding, which saw Kruchka’s night end early. Westbrook had a perfect restart, holding back the hard charging Cory Turner. With nine laps left to go, Cory Turner knew his time was running out so he rolled the dice and made the winning move by making a difficult pass on the high side. Cory Turner is now the only driver to win more than once this season, showing how competitive this division really is. Westbrook got a second place finish filling in for Dan Nanticoke in the No. 15 car, while Matt Farnham collected the final podium spot. D.J Christie and Liam Martin finished fourth and fifth respectively. Ryan Turner now leads the division by only a single point over his brother Cory.

Strickland's Crate Sprint Cars
Rob Neely and Jesse Costa made up the front row to start the 20 lap Crate Sprint Car A-Main. Darren Dryden made up four spots in just the first two laps to gain the lead. Dryden held off the pack in three different restarts over the night; caution flags and traffic could not stop Dryden from taking his third win of the season. Costa mounted a challenge for the lead but ultimately ran out of laps and settled for second. Mike Bowman again ended the night on the podium, finishing third. Lucas Smith finished fourth, while Neely finished fifth after starting on the pole. Lucas Smith leaves the night leading the division, now by 21 points over Eric Gledhill.

Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks
Gofast Teeple and Kyle Andress led the grid to start the 20 lap Thunder Stock A-Main. Within three laps Robert Hoskins became the new race leader after starting third. Pole sitter Teeple dropped to fourth by the time the first caution came out. Championship contenders Dave Bailey and Ryan Beagle once again rallied their way to the front of the pack. After an untimely caution, last week’s runner up Mark Fawcett had an excellent restart and gained the lead with seven laps left to go. The lead was short-lived as Bailey and Beagle overtook Fawcett. Bailey held off Beagle with everything he had left to take his fifth win of the year. Beagle settled for second, Fawcett third, Hoskins fourth, and Mike Klazinga fifth. Bailey now leads over Beagle by 41 points in the division points standings.

HRW Automotive Mini Stocks
The front row of the grid featured Paul Longboat and Mike Giberson to start the 15 lap Mini Stock A-Main. Before the first lap could be completed a caution came out due to a front bumper on the track from Matt Nuell’s car. The restart would get much worse however, as a red flag came out due to a multi-car crash which saw Tristan DaSilva take the most damage, ending his race. Points leader Tyler Lafantaisie took some damage as well that would later affect his vehicle’s performance. Jeff Elsliger took the lead after the restart but it was short-lived as contact with Longboat sent him into the wall on the front stretch, causing another caution. Wayde Thorne assumed the lead as leader Longboat entered the pits due to damage. However it was the driver who started 16th, rookie Eric Yorke, who raced to his first victory ever at Ohsweken after holding off Wayde Thorne, who earned second. Ryan Hillar finished third, Fabio Olivieri fourth, and Tyler Lafantaisie fifth. Lafantaisie’s seventh consecutive top five finish has him now leading the division by 108 points over Olivieri.

Up Next at Ohsweken Speedway
Club 54 Racing presents the next round of Friday Night Excitement on Friday, July 29, featuring the NLMA Crate Late Model Tour and Vintage Car racing, plus Ohsweken's Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars and Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks. Visit www.ohswekenspeedway.com for more information.

Wayne County Speedway

ORRVILLE – The Malcuits Tavern Super Late Models finally took center stage on Saturday night, and true to form, the cars and stars of the O’Reilly Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway’s long-time marquee division failed to disappoint.

Wooster’s Doug Drown made a clean sweep of the 30-lap Don and Hans Gross Memorial/Renegades of Dirt program by taking the lead on lap 19 from series point leader JR Gentry to record his first victory in more than a year in highlighting action at “Orrville’s Historic Oval.”

Castalia’s Jordan Ryan became the 11th different winner in 12 tries by claiming the 25-lap Pine Tree Towing and Recovery Sprint Car feature, while Colton Shaw grabbed his fourth checkered flag of the season by winning the 20-lap Elite Munition Modified main. Anthony Collins scored a popular victory, his first in 12 years, in the JoyRide Mini Stocks’ 12-lapper with John Wilson capping the evening with a trip to victory lane in the wild and wooly 15-lap McKenzie Concrete Super Stock main event.

Drown and Gentry shared the front row on the ultra-fast 3-8 mile, which was in near perfect condition after midday showers threatened to derail the Fast Five program for a sixth time this season. Gentry bolted to an early lead with Drown in close pursuit followed Todd Brennan, Cody Scott, youngster Caiden Black, and Friday night Attica Raceway winner Ryan Markham.

Drown closed to within a car length on lap 12, and finally took the lead seven circuits later by running the speedway’s middle groove. Markham joined the fray and waged a torrid battle with Gentry for second until Black’s run ended by jumping the cushion on lap 25 which also eliminated Scott. Markham, who was spewing smoke from his familiar 5M much of the evening, retired to the pit area during the yellow. Drown led the remining five laps for the $3,000 score followed by Gentry, Brennan, Attica regular Mike Bores from eighth, and 10th-starting Brett Bee.

“It’s been more than a year since we’ve won, which has been a long time for us,” said Drown. “But we have kept digging, and now we are just figuring out how to win again. We’ve been out and about doing other things and haven’t raced much.”

The victory was Drown’s fourth Don and Hans Gross Memorial win of his career.

“I have a lot of (winner’s checks) displayed at my house, but these Gross Memorial wins mean the most. Hopefully, we can get on a roll the rest of the season.”

Ryan has been fast on his visits to WCS, but has left empty-handed until Saturday, which also did not come easy. Ryan grabbed the point from his front row starting slot, and led early followed by Sean Rayhall, who has been equally as fast in recent weeks on the banks of the paper-clipped shaped oval.

Ryan, who was battling heavy lapped traffic by lap eight, lost the lead to Rayhall after contacting a slower car. Ryan quickly recovered and set sail for Rayhall with Ricky Peterson, Trey Jacobs, Andrew Palker, and a fast-closing Danny Mumaw and Tyler Street. Another caution on lap 11, however, bunched the field once again with Rayhall surrendering the lead back to Ryan after heading to the Hutch Extreme Photos work area with a flat tire.

Mumaw, making one of his strongest runs of the season, moved into third on lap 15 as Palker retired from the event funning fifth followed by Jacobs exiting the speedway a lap later from fourth. Ryan hung on for the win over Peterson, Mumaw, Street, and Rayhall in fifth from the tail.

“We’ve been fast and been so close to winning a few this season,” said Ryan beside his MAR Motorsports 25. “In other races, we’ve been fast but haven’t had great starting spots. I knew we could get one of these if we could ever start closer to the front, and now we have the monkey off our back. This is by far my favorite track, and the best fans too.

“We’ll be back (this Saturday, July 30th) for the FAST event, and for sure the Pete Jacobs Memorial (Sunday, Sept. 4).”

The Modifieds were up next, with point leader Colton Shaw on the pole of the event looking for win four on the season. Shaw jumped to an early lead, with Ron Miller, TA Perrine, DJ Cline, and Tristan Bickford dicing it up behind the 01 before a lap six caution bunched the field.

Shaw and Perrine made contact on the restart, though, with a traffic jam on the front straightaway ensuing. As the field once again went green, Cline, a winner this season at WCS, joined the mix but settled for second at the stripe with Miller, Bickford, and Richard Grogg completing the top five.

A few weeks back, Mini Stock pilot Anthony Collins introduced himself to some of the WCS staff and proclaimed he would see them soon in victory lane. No truer words have been spoken, as Collins wired the field to pick up his second career win and first since 2010.

Collins withstood a bevy of cautions, and the best of the best in the Mini Stock division to claim an extremely popular win which set off a wild victory lane celebration. The last of six cations flew with just six laps remaining, as the driver of the Paul Davis Restoration 71 held on for the win over Kyle Petit, Johnny Bruce Sr., Jordan James, and Justin Cranmore and Doug Hensel, who have combined to win all the previous features in 2022 until Saturday.

“Hell I'm out of breath,” joked Collins in victory lane. “This class is tough, and it seemed like every yellow that came out l had someone new starting beside me. They were beatin’ and bangin’ on me those last few laps, but it was good for me because l was getting a little forward push. This is just great.”

The Super Stocks hit the speedway last, as all eyes were on pole-sitter and early-season winner Took Wiles, and eighth-starting Kyle Moore, who recently has been a frequent visitor to WCS victory lane.

Wiles led early with Moore moving closer by the lap with Wilson, Tyler Wiles, and Brandon Morrow within striking distance. Moore moved within a car length on lap eight, and briefly took the lead with a slider in turns 1 and 2 before Took regained the lead on the exit of turn 2 as the veterans motored down the backstretch with Tyler Wiles moving into third.

Moore again attempted to duck under Took in turn 3, but contact was made by the leaders that sent the orange 187 nose-first into the guardrail, catapulting the Rott Shop machine into the 15-foot-high catch fence. After a few anxious moments, Wiles climbed from his destroyed machine unscathed. During the ensuing red flag, Moore was subsequently disqualified from the event, with Tyler Wiles inheriting the lead. During the break, however, Tyler’s black 187 developed mechanical problems and went pitside.

Wilson then grabbed the point and never looked back in garnering the win over Brandon Morrow, Josh Morrow, and Don Rutt.

The WCS will be back in action next Saturday with a Fast Five series program with the FAST Sprint Car series making its highly anticipated return.

Macedo solidifies his hold on AFCS standings with Fremont win; Valenti doubles up with 305 and truck win; Rader gets midget victory

Sunday, July 24, 2022

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Cole Macedo solidified his spot at the top of the Fremont Speedway 410 point standings and the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group Saturday, July 23. The Lemoore, California native got the lead in the feature with just 10 laps to go and stormed to his fourth division win of the year on Madison Motors Night.

Morning rains caused for a very challenging racing surface at Fremont, but Macedo credited his crew chief Steven Linder for making the right calls on the set-up to get him comfortable.

“Steven and the guys gave me a great race car. When we had that red I told my guys we’re going to be okay because I felt like I hadn’t run 100 percent yet. Once I felt like it was time to pull the trigger I kicked it into 100 percent and it worked out,” said Macedo beside his Gill Construction, CK Mechanical, Grant Decker Construction, Fremont Auto Parts, ML Graphics, Durst, Catawba Island Club, Linder’s Speed Equipment backed #18.

Macedo has five total wins at Fremont in 2022 aboard the Ray Brooks Racing team – four in the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 sprints and another in 360 sprint competition – to run his career victories at the track to nine. In 2022, Macedo has seven total sprint car victories including wins at Wayne County Speedway and Attica Raceway Park. He is going for the trifecta of championships as he is only a few points out of the lead at Attica while leading the standings in the AFCS and Fremont.

Fostoria, Ohio’s Shawn Valenti had quite the night at “The Track That Action Built.” He led all 15 laps of the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature to score his third win of the year in that division, then turned around and led all 25 laps of the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 sprint A-main for his second victory of 2022 in that division. Valenti now has 72 career feature wins at Fremont, just four behind tying Art Ball atop the all-time win list.

“Jeff Babcock and the guys have really worked hard to get back to victory lane with this truck. We knew with the rains it was going to be a challenging track and this thing was up to the challenge. That truck race was good enough…25 laps on this in the sprint…I’m wore out. I have to thank Jeff Riehl on the sprint car. We go through some times of struggles and he sticks by my side. Rick and Noah Eberly for their help,” said Valenti of his A Plus Auto Center, Craig Miller Trucking, Dave Story Equipment, KS Sales & Service, S&S Hauling and Excavation, Concrete Material Supply, Kelly Property Inspections, Shumaker Enterprises backed truck and sprint car.

For the first time in the track’s history the USAC Midwest Thunder Midgets paid a call to Fremont Speedway. When the checkers flew Findlay, Ohio’s Drew Rader stood in victory lane.

“I’ve had relatives race here and I came here a lot as a kid. It made this place a notch on the belt that I really wanted to achieve,” said Rader beside his Heitmeyer Concrete, Ohio Logistics, Hawk Racing backed machine.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, July 30 with the AFCS 410 and 305 sprints, the Great Lakes Super Sprints (360s) and dirt trucks in action.

Summer Nationals Win to Starks

7/23/22

Alger, WA - Trey Starks emerged from the 2022 Bob’s Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals $10,000 richer after leading all 36 laps of the main event at Skagit Speedway on Saturday night. The win was Starks’ first in the 32 year history of the race.

Starks and Justin Sanders sat on the front row of the main event and at the drop of the green flag, it was Trey bursting to the front of the field and establishing a solid advantage. A lap four yellow for Lane Taylor bunched the field, and on the restart, Starks once again jetted out to a huge lead. Starks would absolutely carve through lapped traffic, dicing and slicing through slower traffic, lapping all the way through ninth place on the field before a lap 32 caution for Tyler Thompson brought the field together for one last green flag run. Tanner Holmes had worked his way from fifth to second by that time, and on the restart, showed speed on the low side of turns one and two. Starks missed the cushion a little on corner exit on the 34th and 35th lap, giving Holmes a shot down low coming to the white flag. Tanner put together one more strong run, but the night and the weekend belonged to Starks, who drove hard around the top of turns three and four to secure the victory. Holmes would secure a solid second place finish while Sanders took home third. Brock Lemley was hard charger, coming from the B Main to start 21st and finishing 6th. The top four in points from the previous night’s show locked into the pole shuffle - the remaining 33 cars ran full qualifying and heat races, with points going towards starting position for the A and B mains, as well as two additional spots in the pole shuffle. Chase Goetz was fast time. Colton Heath, Lemley, Eric Fisher and Ashleigh Johnson won the heat races. Colby Thornhill and Logan Forler were the last two lockins to the pole shuffle, joining Starks, Sanders, Jason Solwold and Holmes from the previous night.

For the second straight night,Jayme Barnes dominated the Herz Precision Parts Wingless Sprint Series main event. Barnes led all 25 laps of the feature, with Eric Turner and Alex Hantel rounding out the podium. Hantel was the fast qualifier, while Turner won the heat race.

The Hornet Nationals A Main presented by Cascade Pizza was one for the ages, with Adam Holtrop and Trent Gillespie ending up duking it out for the win. Megan White led the first eight laps before Holtrop overtook her on a restart, with Gillespie taking second just a few short laps later. The pair ran in tight unison for the rest of the race, running each other clean as a whistle while vying for the win. In the end. Gillespie, in just his second race on dirt, made the pass on Adam with two laps to go to secure the victory, with Holtrop and White ending up second and third. Holtrop also won a heat race, as did Colin Sims.

DARYL CHARLIER BECOMES 9TH DIFFERENT HOVIS RUSH LATE MODEL FLYNN’S TIRE TOUR WINNER IN 12 RACES WITH 1ST WIN IN NEARLY 4 YEARS IN THE NON-STOP FEATURE AT LERNERVILLE; GARRETT KRUMMERT CHARGES FROM 11TH FOR RUSH SPORTSMAN MOD FLYNN’S TIRE TOUR WIN; 1ST OF YEAR FOR JOHN MOLLICK IN RUSH SPRINTS
By Mike Leone

(July 22, 2022) -


(Sarver, PA)...On a sunny, hot and steamy Friday, Lernerville Speedway hosted the third annual “RUSH Summer Showcase” featuring the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Late Models, RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and RUSH Sprint Cars as a total of 79 Chevrolet Performance crate engine cars filled the pit area. Race #12 for the Flynn’s Tire Late Model Tour went to Daryl Charlier, while race #3 for the Flynn’s Tire Sportsman Modified Tour was won by Garrett Krummert, and finally race #15 for the Equipment Rental Options RUSH Sprint Car Weekly Series was captured by John Mollick.

Daryl Charlier passed three-time champion Jeremy Wonderling on lap two and broke away during the second half of the feature with a masterful drive through lapped traffic during the caution-free 30 lapper to become the ninth different winner in the first 12 RUSH Late Model Flynn’s Tire Touring Series races run in 2022! Charlier’s first Tour victory since October 7, 2018 at Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway was worth $3,000. It was the second non-stop feature in the last three events and was timed in 10:08.028.

“This feels really good- especially here as I love racing here,” expressed the 38-year-old Bulger, Pa. driver. “We’ve been struggling with the slick setup for a while. We tried some stuff at Sharon and came home with a third. We ran the same thing here with some little minor adjustments and glad we were able to pull it off. I had a lot of fun in lapped traffic. I’m not sure how close everyone was behind me. I was just trying to keep the car straight as possible, stay out of any potential trouble, and pick them up off as quickly as I could. I have to thank Brad for letting me wheel this and the Super Late Model for him, the whole crew, and all of the sponsors.”

Wonderling led the opening circuit before Charlier powered by around the topside on lap two. Sixth starting Kyle Lukon moved into fourth past Matt Latta on lap three. David Pangrazio had also gotten by Latta and was challenging Wonderling for second. The two raced side-by-side on lap five, while Charlier opened up some ground. Just behind that battle, Lukon was in a war with Latta, eighth starting Joe Martin, and points leader Logan Roberson. Martin finally worked his way by Latta to move into the top five on lap nine.

Back up front, Charlier had stretched his lead of 1.4 seconds when he caught lapped traffic on lap 12. By the halfway point, Charlier’s lead grew even bigger in traffic. Lukon gained another position when he used the outside in turns one and two to pass Pangrazio for third on lap 21.

Charlier had his hands full in traffic in the closing laps, but the veteran racer made the right moves and stretched his advantage to an impressive 3.326 seconds at the finish for his third career Flynn’s Tire Tour win, but first ever for the Centerline Motorsports-owned, Three Rivers Karting/Amsoil/Ken Ganley Toyota/Accu-Force Dynos/Jacobs Gable Inn/MBM Contracting/Bob Sieman Garage Doors/AQS Properties/Bud's-sponsored #3RK.

Wonderling was able to score his first podium finish of the season with a runner-up worth $1,500. Wonderling was fresh off a fourth place finish at Eriez Speedway at the last event, which had matched his season’s best finish. “I was hoping when we got to lapped traffic I’d be able to reel him back in but he was better in traffic than I was,” explained the 42-year-old Wellsville, NY driver. “I knew at the beginning of the race getting out front was going to mean a lot. Daryl (Charlier) is really good at rolling around the top at places like Pittsburgh and here. I thought I heard him out there but didn’t see him until we made some contact on the frontstretch. I tried to race him as clean as I could. We are pretty happy with this the way we have been running so far this year.”

Lukon’s third place was his season’s best Flynn’s Tire Tour finish in his third start of the season. Pangrazio continued the trend of drivers with their best finish of the season as he was fourth for his first Tour top five of 2022. Martin was fifth for his eighth top five of the season and was the only driver in the top five that didn’t record a season best finish.

Latta was sixth for the third time in the last six events. Roberson was a disappointing seventh for just his second finish outside the top five this season; however, still remains a perfect 12-for-12 with top 10 finishes. Michael Norris went 19th to eighth without a caution to earn the $50 Precise Racing Products “Pedal Down” Hard Charger gift card. Will Thomas III was ninth after starting 12th. Brady Wonderling was 10th for the third straight race.

Roberson set fast time in $100 FK Rod Ends “Shock the Clock” Qualifying for the fourth time this season with a lap of 18.088. Picking up $25 FK Rod Ends heat race victories were Cody Dawson, Lukon, and Jeremy Wonderling. Jeremy Wonderling won his first Sunoco Dash of the season and earned a $100 Sunoco gift card. Norris won the last chance B main from eighth!

Jon Lee received the spoiler kit from Ontime Body & Graphic in his first ever Flynn’s Tire Tour start after winning his first career RUSH Late Model feature the week before at Dog Hollow Speedway. Tour regular Ashton Briggs had terminal issues during qualifying, which ended his night, and was chosen as the TBM Brakes “Tough Brake of the Night” recipient. R.J. Dallape was the first non-qualifier and received a $100 Performance Bodies gift card. Tour regulars Martin and Jonathan Stockdale won the $100 Sunoco gift cards, while the $50 ones went to Michael Duritsky, Jr., Ryan Frazee, Dallape, and Norris.

The Flynn’s Tire Touring Series will be right back in action Saturday night (July 23) with the first ever appearance at Tyler County Speedway in Middlebourne, West Virginia for another $3,000 to-win Marquee Event. Pits open at 4 p.m. with warm-ups at 6:45 followed by qualifying and racing.

After struggling mightily in his heat race, Garrett Krummert charged from 11th starting and went third to first on lap 24 passing race-long leader Rob Kristyak to become the third different winner in three Flynn’s Tire Touring Series events this season for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. Krummert, who continues to lead the Tour points, earned $800 for his fourth overall win of 2022.

“We were terrible in the heat race and I thought we were in trouble for the first 20 laps of the feature,” explained the 34-year-old West Middlesex, Pa. driver. “We were riding around and I couldn’t make any time. I was hoping for a caution. I saw what Kristyak did with the 5 (Cipriano) the first time and he did it the second time and left an opening so I had to go. We were bad. I told my crew we were going to pack up and go home after the heat race. We still aren’t perfect, but were better. It was a great race. I appreciate the fans staying, the last five laps were exciting. I have to thank Jerry (Schaffer) for allowing us to do this along with my whole crew and wife. We changed a lot after the heat so the crew earned their time tonight.”

Kristyak used the outside to power by Brandon Ritchey at the start of the 25-lap feature with Justin Shea in tow. Ninth starting Ayden Cipriano was on the move as he passed Tony Tatgenhorst for fourth on lap three. Shea raced by Ritchey for second on lap four with Cipriano following one lap later in third. Kristyak had opened up a straightaway lead by lap seven. Krummert entered the mix when he passed June 18 Sharon Tour winner Ben Easler and Ritchey for fourth on lap nine. Cipriano slipped under Shea for second on lap 11 with Shea then losing third to Krummert on lap 12.

Kristyak found himself mired in heavy lapped traffic on laps 16 and 17 and his huge advantage was gone on lap 18 as Cipriano and Krummert closed in. Cautions on lap 21 and 22 bunched up the field for double file restarts. Krummert was able to get by the youngster Cipriano and then fellow veteran Kristyak for the winning move on lap 24. Krummert’s sixth career Tour victory and 25th overall in RUSH Sportsman Modified competition came by 0.375 seconds in the Jerry Schaffer Racing/Turn 4 Toilets/Jerry Rents/MD Landscaping-sponsored #10s.

Cipriano was also able to get by Kristyak to record his career best Tour finish in second. After leading the first 23 laps in a brand new car, Kristyak was a disappointing third. J.C. Boyer was fourth. Shea dropped to fifth after being as high as second. Sixth through 10th were Easler, 14th starting Todd English, Ritchey, Chas Wolbert, and Tatgenhorst.

Mike Miller made his first ever start in Joe Gibson’s #119 and went 24th to 13th to earn the $50 Precise Racing Products “Pedal Down” Hard Charger gift card. Cory Riffe was selected as the TBM Brakes “Tough Brake of the Night” recipient after an opening lap accident that sidelined him for the event. Clayton Deems was chosen as the Sherwood Wheels “Man of Steel” recipient. Jordan Ehrenberg, Kristyak, and Ritchey won the heat races over the 25-car field.

John Mollick stole a first career win away from Brian Hartzell by taking the lead on lap 13 and led the rest of the way to win his first Hovis RUSH Sprint Car feature since his only win on July 27, 2019 at Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway. The Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series win for Mollick was worth $600 as he became the sixth different winner of the season. Like the RUSH Late Models, the RUSH Sprint Car feature also went non-stop as the 20 lapper was timed in 6:58.698.

“Wow I can’t believe we just won on that race track,” expressed the 51-year-old Toronto, Ohio veteran. “It’s crazy. That’s not my style, my track, but we got the win tonight. This class is just getting tougher and tougher every year. Everyone is picking up their game, learning, learning. It’s a struggle to keep up. These young guys are coming up quick. I have to thank my guys Scott (Clever) and Rick (Antill); Scott owns the car and Rick works on it along with my wife, sponsors, and Jet for taking care of the engine for us.”

Hartzell was able to get by pole-sitter Zack Wilson on the start. Mollick, who started fourth, passed Joe Buccola on lap four for third then drove around Wilson for second off turn four on lap seven. Hartzell’s advantage was 1.127 second over Mollick by the time Mollick got to second. The advantage quickly shrunk as Mollick closed in on lap 11. The two raced side-by-side on lap 13 with Mollick using the outside off turn four for the winning move.

Hartzell stayed within striking distance until lap 17 when Mollick stretched out his advantage and that continued until the finish as he took the checkered flag first by a commanding 3.946 seconds in the Scott Clever-owned, Duda Cable Construction/Prox Power Washing/RV Coleman Trucking/Rae-Lyn Enterprises-sponsored #4J. Hartzell matched a career best finish in second. Rookie Wilson was a career best third as he continues to impress with no full size race car experience. Gale Ruth, Jr. was fifth.

Buccola had a career best RUSH Sprint Car finish in sixth as Andy Priest, Brandon Blackshear, Chad Ruhlman, Blaze Myers, and Zach Morrow completed the top 10. The 25 cars in competition set an all-time record high car count for the fifth year division beating the 24 from earlier this season at Sharon Speedway. Heat winners were Ruth, Ruhlman, and Wilson.

Cottle Wins Opening Round of Indiana Sprint Week

With Last-Lap Pass of Grant

Friday Night at Gas City I-69 Speedway

GAS CITY, Ind., July 23 — Shane Cottle of Kansas, Ill., only led one lap of Friday’s USAC AMSOIL national sprint car feature at Gas City I-69 Speedway, but it was the one that counted.

The two-time track champion had to qualify through the semi and he started tenth in the feature, but he charged under point leader Justin Grant of Avon, Ind. in Turn 1 on the final lap to win an eventful opening feature of the 35th annual USAC NOS Energy Drink Indiana Sprint Week.

The event attracted 52 non-wing sprint cars and a packed house of fans to the quarter-mile dirt track between Indianapolis and Fort Wayne.

Defending All Star Circuit of Champions TQ midget champion Joey Paxson of Connersville, Ind., led all 20 laps of that series’ supporting feature.

USAC AMSOIL Non-Wing Sprint Cars

For the bulk of the non-wing sprint car headliner the main players were Robert Ballou of Tipton, Ind.; Grant; C.J. Leary of Greenfield, Ind., and Brady Bacon of Winchester, Ind.

Ballou, the polesitter, led the first 13 laps before Grant, who started second, snuck under him in Turn 4 to lead lap 14. Meanwhile, Leary and Bacon exchanged third a couple of times before Bacon took command of the spot by dipping under Leary in Turn 2 working lap seven.

Up front, Ballou regained the lead from Grant to lead laps 15 and 16, with a pause between those two laps for a yellow due to an errant cone on the frontstretch.

Grant repassed Ballou for the lead by dipping under him in Turn 4 on lap 17, while on the same lap Leary passed Bacon for third. But working lap 20 Leary clipped a couple infield tires in Turn 2 and slipped from third to sixth.

Bacon charged from fourth to second on lap 20, passing Leary and then Ballou on the outside on the backstretch for the runner-up spot. However, as Bacon and Ballou flew through Turn 3 with 20 laps complete they made contact, and Bacon’s car flipped hard at the top of the turn to bring out a red flag. Bacon got out of his car under his own power and marched to the frontstretch, where Ballou was parked under the red flag, to express his displeasure with Ballou. It was a sad end to Bacon’s night, as he had worked hard to come from last to earn the final transfer spot to the feature in the third heat.

Cottle didn’t even appear in the top five until lap 19, when he passed Chase Stockon of Fort Branch, Ind., for fifth. He was third on lap 20 with Bacon’s departure and Leary’s encounters with the infield tires. He got one more spot following the restart on lap 21 by passing Ballou for second, leaving only Grant to deal with further up the track.

On lap 25 Leary passed Ballou for third in Turn 1. Grant had built up a 1.191-second lead over Cottle by that time.

More fireworks were on the horizon, however. Grant’s lead was 1.313 seconds on lap 29 when Leary flipped hard on the frontstretch after contact with Ballou. Leary’s car landed upside down a little past the flagstand. Like Bacon, Leary was unhurt but angry with Ballou. After getting out of his badly damaged car Leary jogged from the frontstretch to where Ballou was parked on the backstretch near Turn 3 under the red, and kicked Ballou while Ballou sat in his cockpit, falling down in the process before a USAC official broke up the confrontation.

The red flag for Leary set up a green-white-checkered finish. Grant held the lead, barely, on the white-flag lap, but on the final circuit Cottle slipped under him in Turn 1 to post a 0.265-second victory over Grant.

“I love running the bottom here; I’ve won a lot of races around here just like that,” Cottle said afterwards.

Mitchel Moles of Raisin City, Calif., who topped Fatheadz qualifying earlier in the evening, ended up finishing third. Ballou finished fourth and Stockon finished where he’d started, in fifth place. Kyle Cummins of Princeton, Ind., was the hard charger, as he finished sixth after starting 17th.

Cottle’s winning car is the Hodges Motorsports/Hodges Automotive No. 74X, which is a DRC chassis powered by a J & D Chevy. The car is sponsored by J.B. Henderson and Ortega’s Appliance.

The series will be back at Gas City on Thursday, Sept. 22 for the James Dean Classic, when it will be joined by the USAC NOS Energy Drink national midgets.

All Star Circuit of Champions TQs

Paxson started on the pole in the TQ midget feature and led the whole race in his Tony Stewart Racing No. 1, which is sponsored by Jenmarco.com, Vance & Hines, and Acro Engineering.

Robbie Roland of Carthage, Ind., and Matt Lux of Manilla, Ind., exchanged positions, as Roland started third and finished second, and Lux started second and finished third. Two-time champion Cory Clay of Morgantown, Ind., placed fourth. Johnny Heydenreich of Indianapolis came from 12th to pass Logan Prickett of Shelbyville, Ind., on the last lap to round out the top five finishers.

Rylan Gray of Greenfield, Ind., flipped hard in Turn 4 to bring out a red flag with six laps down. He reportedly suffered a knee injury in the accident.

Kaylee Bryson of Muskogee, Okla., started sixth, passed Lux for second on lap five, and pressured Paxson until she pulled off on the backstretch with 14 laps down with a mechanical issue.

Additional Red Flags

In addition to the two flips in the sprint car feature and the flip in the TQ feature, there were three sprint flips earlier in the evening. Drivers from Lebanon weren’t very lucky, as Austin Graby of Lebanon, Pa., flipped in Turn 4 during warmups and Kyle Shipley of Lebanon, Ind., flipped in the same turn during time trials. Defending Indiana Sprint Week titlist Kevin Thomas Jr. of Cullman, Ala., also flipped between Turns 3 and 4 during trial trials.

What’s Next?

This coming Friday night, July 29, is the “Summer Thunder Mod Madness” show featuring crate late models, street stocks, modifieds ($1,000 to win), hornets, and the USAC Midwest Thunder SpeeD2 midgets. It’s also Hoosier Auto Racing Fan (HARF) Appreciation Night.

On Friday, Aug. 5 the track will host its “Beach Night Bash” for non-wing sprint cars, modifieds, street stocks and hornets. The Midwest Oldtimers Vintage Racing Club will also be on hand with a display and an exhibition.

Jordan Poirier Slides to Win at Albany-Saratoga Speedway
July 23, 2022
By Barbara Patterson
Jordan Poirier executed clean slide jobs to win Friday night at Albany-Saratoga Speedway. By adding another ESS win to his season, Poirier, from Quebec, Canada, still leads the ESS Lucas Oil Championship Tour points and the ESS Rifenburg Contracting Corp. Fast Time points. It also moved him up to the top five in the National 360 Wing Sprint Car Win list.

Danny Varin drew the Pinnacle Pole to lead the field to the green flag with Davie Franek starting on the outside. Paulie Colagiovanni spun in the high side of turn four to bring out the caution before lap one was completed. On the restart, Tyler Cartier spun in the middle of turn four which collected Colagiovanni and Floyd Billington. All three cars were able to restart. When the green flag waved, Varin walked away from the field to lead 19 of the 25 laps. On lap nine, Scott Duell, former Sportsman driver at Albany-Saratoga, slowed to a stop in turn four and was unable to continue. Davie Franek started to pressure leader Varin and tried a slide job in turn four but Varin was able to motor around. On lap ten Poirier took over second from Franek and set his sights on Varin. The yellow flag flew on lap twelve for Brett Wright who jumped the right rear of Jason Barney’s car on the backstretch. Wright was unable to continue. On the restart, Lacey Hanson pulled into the infield due to mechanical issues that have plagued her the last two races. With five to go, Poirier went low in four to set up his slide job. He took the lead but it wasn’t a done deal. In turn one, Varin retook the lead. The two raced down the backstretch and in turn four Poirier dove low again to slide Varin for the lead. Varin dove into turn one to retake the lead but Poirier changed his line to motor around Varin on the cushion. Poirier then shook off Varin to take his third checkered flag of the season. After the race, Poirier said, “I loved racing with Varin. It was close but fair.” The Ashley Lynn Winery Podium was Poirier, Varin and Franek.

The rest of the top five, in the Lucas Oil feature, were Shawn Donath, last week’s winner at Freedom Motorsports Park, and Dylan Swiernik. Sixth through tenth were Colagiovanni, who ran the cushion to work his way back from the tail of the field, Scott Holcomb, with his first top ten of the season, Chuck Hebing, Matt Tanner and Jason Barney. Heats were won by Jeff Cook, Colagiovanni, and Varin. Tyler Cartier passed six cars to earn the Hard Charger award and Chad Miller won the Cobra Coaches/J & D Waste Equipment Dash.

Mario Clouser Cruises to POWRi WAR Night Two Win in LOS Beach Brawl
Belleville, IL. (7/23/22) Mario Clouser would use a high-side hustle to precision with the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League at Lake Ozark Speedway for Night Two of the Beach Brawl Weekend to earn his twelfth career League feature victory.

Early on track accomplishments would witness Mario Clouser clock top-time in hot laps with a 14.023-second-lap as Jack Wagner and Zach Daum would each earn a heat race competition victory.

Soaring into the initial start would see the high-point qualifier and pole-sitting Mario Clouser battle front-row companion Jack Wagner into the first pair of corners with Clouser earning the early lead the first few laps by using a fast but tricky high-line.

Slicing and dicing through the field with multiple lines of racing throughout the field would witness several drivers all attempt to run down the speedy Clouser as Zach Daum, Steven Russell, Quinton Benson, and Kory Schudy would all make runs at the front.

Finding the fastest running line in the caution-free feature, Mario Clouser would grab the front of the field and hold on to the lead to notch his first win this season within POWRi WAR as Zach Daum would wheel his way to a solid runner-up placement with a low-line running Anthony Nicholson placing in the final podium position.

Maintaining a solid showing all night Steven Russell would hold steady to finish fourth as Wesley Smith hard-charged his way to round out the top-five finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi WAR Sprint League feature event for Night Two of the Beach Brawl at Lake Ozark Speedway.

Heath Wins Summer Nationals Night One

7/22/22

Alger, WA - Night one of the 2022 Bob’s Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals at Skagit Speedway saw former track champion Colton Heath lead the final twenty nine laps of the main event for his first win at the track this year. Jayme Barnes was the Wingless Sprint Series winner and Adam Holtrop took the victory on night one of the Hornet Nationals.

Heath started on the outside of row number one with Lane Taylor on the pole, and it was Taylor around the bottom of the track leading the first lap. Heath found the fast line around the high groove to his liking and drove around Taylor in what ended up being the race winning pass on lap two. From there, only a yellow flag on lap eleven would slow Colton’s roll, as the next nineteen laps clipped off with Heath driving through heavy traffic and the field trying to run him down. Justin Sanders and Trey Starks were the two drivers on the move through the field, starting 14th and 16th respectively and with five laps left, the two had moved into second and third. With Heath slowed a little by a slower car, both drivers closed to the point where Sanders could throw a slidejob at Heath in the first two turns on the final lap. Heath saw the move and executed a crossover coming out of the turn, and the pair raced down the back straightaway. Rolling through the final turns side by side, Heath would outrace Sanders to the line by .032 to take the win. The second place finish for Sanders and third for Starks, combined with their heat race points and qualifying points from earlier in the night were enough to lock both drivers into the pole shuffle for Saturday’s program - joining them will be Jason Solwold and Tanner Holmes. Starks set quick time and won his heat. Other heat wins went to Ashlyn Rodriguez, Greg Hamilton and Brock Lemley.

The Herz Precision Products Wingless Sprint Series saw Jayme Barnes return to Skagit Speedway with a dominant win in the 25 lap A Main. After setting fast time in his dad’s car, Jayme led all 25 laps of the feature unchallenged. Rob Lindsey and Eric Turner had an engaging battle for the runner up spot, with Lindsey coming out on top. Turner won the heat race.

Night one of the annual Hornet Nationals saw a great battle up front in the 20 lap A Main.

Holtrop would go on to take the win, with Trent Gillespie making his first dirt experience a good one by running second. Colin SIms made a late race pass to take third. Sims also won a heat race, as did Jon Gunderson.

BUD KAEDING DRIVES BACK TO VICTORY LANE IN THE OCEAN SPRINTS

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (July 22, 2022) – Bud Kaeding drove back to victory lane for the first time in 2022, taking Friday’s Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo feature in Watsonville, Calif. Kaeding topped 17-year-old Joey Ancona from Concord on the dirt track at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds.

“You guys have no idea. We’ve been working – it’s been a year since we’ve won here. Won period. My guys work as hard as any guys in the pits. I’ve worked less hard against 108 cars and won. This kid in the 88 (Ancona) is definitely up and coming. To win tonight in front of you fans that support this track is great. Winning is why we do this,” Kaeding said.

Auburn’s Andy Forsberg visited the dirt track by the ocean and won the dash race for the pole position. Forsberg led the field into turn one for the 30-lap affair. Travis Coelho of Long Beach spun in turn two for a caution on lap four.

Ancona worked his way to the outside of Forsberg on the restart, driving past to lead lap six. Jake Hodges of Simi Valley, Don Hart of Campo, and Cameron Suoja of San Ramon came together in turn two for the next caution. Hodges was unable to rejoin the action.

Coelho then brought the race to a red flag stoppage on lap four when he flipped on the backstretch and was tagged by Suoja in the aftermath. Coelho won the Beer Optics Hard Luck for the incident.

Bud Kaeding started to make progress on the bottom side of the track, working past Forsberg for the second position on lap 13 in turn four. Kaeding showed his nose inside Ancona for the lead in turn one on lap 20, and they raced side-by-side down the front stretch on lap 21. Ancona attempted to shut the door and Kaeding soared to the outside. Kaeding drove past Ancona in the decisive maneuver for the win. Ancona finished second followed by Forsberg, Watsonville’s Rickey Sanders, and Gilroy’s Kurt Nelson.

Atascadero’s Orion Messina won his first career IMCA Sport Modified event, leading the final 17 laps for the victory in the 20-lap contest. 18 starters took the green flag with Watsonville’s Jeff Mead racing side-by-side with Messina on the opening lap. Mead grabbed the lead and held it for the first three laps before Messina worked his way inside on the backstretch to lead lap four.

Austin McMillian of Atascadero spun in turn four for a caution on lap eight. Cody Bryan of Freedom spun from the second position on the restart yet the race remained under green.

Eleventh starting Tyler Rodgers of Chico advanced to fourth, then followed points leader Jonathan Hagio of Prunedale as they moved into the top-three.

McMillian brought out another caution in turn four on lap 13. Mead and Jacob Mallet, Jr. of Oakley collided before the caution, with Mead coming to a stop on the backstretch during the yellow flag with heavy damage. A multi-car skirmish brought out the red flag on the restart when Prunedale’s Max Baggett, Aaron Farrell, Nicholas Zapatero, and Igor Gandzuk crashed on the backstretch.

Santa Rosa’s Chris Seweke spun from third for the final caution on lap 16. Messina held the lead over the final four laps to top Hagio, Mallet, Rodgers, and Pittsburg’s Chuck Golden.

Kenny Stragalinos of Boulder Creek charged from 12th on the grid to win the 15-lap Four Banger feature. Watsonville’s Tony Gullo started on the outside pole and led the opening lap. Stragalinos and Travis VanGilder collided in turn two, ending VanGilder’s race and bringing out a caution on lap two. Pole sitter Kate Beardsley slowed on the restart to surrender the second position.

Stragalinos was already up to second by that point as Gullo led them into lapped traffic on lap six. Stragalinos went to the outside line and took over the lead on lap ten. Gullo finished second over Nicole Beardsley, TJ Santos of Gilroy, and Dylan Chairez of Atascadero.

Delta Dwarf regular Danny Wagner of Bay Point won the 20-lap South Bay Dwarf Car feature. Fred Dickey of Valley Springs led lap one before Terre Rothweiler of Santa Cruz led the second lap. Wagner took over second on the next lap.

Wagner took over the lead on lap ten. Lapped traffic allowed Camarillo’s Nick Velasquez to take over second on lap 16. Rothweiler finished third ahead of Dickey and Eric Weisler of Campbell.

Roy Iller of San Benito Sheriffs won the Police-in-Pursuit 15-lap feature. The race was halted by a red flag when Kevin Sullivan of Scotts Valley Police flipped in turn four. He was uninjured. Jackie Yeung of Capitola Police Department came back from a pit stop to finish second followed by the Scotts Valley Fire Department of first-time driver Jeff Nehf.

Joe B Miller Gains POWRi WAR Win at Lake Ozark Speedway’s Beach Brawl Night One

Belleville, IL. (7/22/22) Joe B Miller would use the low-line to perfection with the Lucas Oil POWR Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League at Lake Ozark Speedway for Night One of the Beach Brawl Weekend to earn his fifth career League feature victory.

Early on track accomplishments would witness Kory Schudy clock top-time in hot laps with a 13.792-second-lap as Mario Clouser and Wesley Smith would each earn a heat race competition victory.

Soaring into the initial start would see the high-point qualifier and pole-sitting Mario Clouser battle front-row companion Joe B Miller into the first pair of corners with Clouser earning the lead the first few laps by using a fast but tricky high-line.

Finding the fastest running line to the low-side, Joe B Miller would grab the front of the field and hold on to the lead to notch his first win this season within POWRi WAR as one-time leader Mario Clouser would wheel his way to a solid runner-up placement with point-leader Kory Schudy placing in the final podium position.

“The car was really good in the feature, the track was pretty tricky but I think the track time helped from the 410 wing race into the non-wing side; feels good to carry the speed into the weekend,” said a victorious Joe B Miller in the Eldon Missouri Victory Lane.

Maintaining a solid showing all night Zach Daum would hold steady to finish fourth as Anthony Nicholson would hard-charge to round out the top-five finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi WAR Sprint League feature event for Night One of the Beach Brawl at Lake Ozark Speedway.

Philo maneuvers traffic for 1st AFCS 410 Attica win; Markham scores 2nd late model victory in a row; Foos takes advantage for 305 victory

Friday, July 22, 2022

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Travis Philo was so close to a win at Attica Raceway Park a couple of weeks ago. The Bowling Green, Ohio driver wasn’t going to let another opportunity slip through his fingers as he lead all 30 laps Friday, July 22, working traffic to perfection to score his first win of 2022 on Advanced Drainage Solutions/Steinle Chevrolet-Buick/NAPA Auto Parts Night.

The victory was the eight of his career at Attica, though it wasn’t easy as Craig Mintz and Trey Jacobs challenged at the mid-way point of the race. Philo’s chassis was just repaired Monday after a crash the previous weekend.

Jacobs third place finish coupled with Cole Macedo’s eighth place fun should propel the Jacobs to the track’s point lead as he looks to repeat as champion. Also, defending All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Bauman Auto Group defending champion DJ Foos would come home fourth to close the gap on Macedo for that title.

“We had a really good car. AJ, my dad, Kayden, Carly, my uncle Dave is here…we’ve been having a stretch of bad luck. We tore up a car at Eldora and we’ve run a lot of seconds and thirds this year. Finally nice to get the job done. This is AJ (Havens) and I and Kayden’s first win together. I don’t like starting on the front row….you’re kinda expected to win those races but I just had a good car. I was trying to pedal the car a little bit so I didn’t catch the lapped cars and the cautions fell at the right time. I got the wing back and it worked out pretty good,” said Philo beside his Control Design Solutions, Tire Slick, Columbus Equipment, Banshee Graphics, Berryman Racing Shocks backed #5T.

Ryan Markham led all 25 laps of the Dirt Nerds Podcast/Propane.com UMP Late Model feature to claim his second straight victory at Attica. It is the 21st of his career at the track to sit third for the division’s all-time win list. It wasn’t easy for Markham as several restarts Casey Noonan challenged to his inside. But once Markham got his momentum on the high side he pulled away.

“This feels so good especially how we struggled early this year. The car felt so good up top I knew I just couldn’t panic and make a mistake on the restarts,” said Markham beside his Steve Brown’s B&B Drain Service, Mars Trucking, Monster Motors, Accu Force Dynos, TruForm, Macto Tools by Jimmy, Clear Detail backed #5M.

When Jamie Miller slid off the track with 11 laps to go, Fremont, Ohio’s Matt Foos was there to pounce in the Fremont Fence 305 Sprint feature. Foos, a former Attica dirt truck champion, held off several challenges from Kasey Jedrzejek and worked his way perfectly through heavy lapped traffic for his 2nd win of the season at Attica and the sixth of his career in the division.

Foos’ victory in the non-stop feature got him a little closer to Paul Weaver (finished fourth) and Miller (finished third) in the chase for the title of the NAPA of Bryan Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales.

“I knew I had a chance if I stayed close to Jamie (Miller). I think even if he hadn’t gotten off the track I had something for him. The car was so good but you had to be careful up top…it was a very thin cushion,” said Foos beside his Level Performance, Mitten Painting, Fremont Fence, Rohr Total Lawn Care, DJ Johnson & Family, M&L Excavating, Level Utilities, Chuck’s Budget Brakes, The Car Spa, Berryman Racing Shocks, Kear’s Speed Shop, 818 Club backed #12.

Philo jumped out to the lead at the drop of the green for the 30-lap Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprint feature with Craig Mintz, Trey Jacobs, Caleb Griffith and DJ Foos in tow. Philo quickly built a sizeable lead until a caution with just four laps in. Following a red on the restart, Philo once again pulled away from the field when the green appeared. Back to back cautions on laps seven and eight kept the field close.

Once again though, when the green flew so did Philo, pulling to a substantial lead while Mintz, Jacobs and Griffith battled for second. But as Philo got set to hit lapped traffic at the half-way point, Mintz and Jacobs closed. Jacobs took second right on Philo’s tail by lap 19, but once Philo cleared lapped traffic, he pulled away.

Mintz got back around Jacobs with nine laps to go but no one was going to catch Philo who took the victory over Mintz, Jacobs, Foos and 16th starter Jordan Ryan. Ryan earned an extra $500 from NAPA Auto Parts for being the hard charger and doing it on a four race old right rear tire.

Markham grabbed the lead at the drop of the green for the 25-lap late model feature with Chester Fitch, Casey Noonan, Devin Shiels and Mike Bores in pursuit. Four cautions in the first 11 laps kept Markham on his toes as Noonan would drive to his inside in the first set of turns each restart.

Once he got his momentum up, Markham drove away but the battle for second was intense throughout with Noonan, Bores and Shiels battling hard. When the checkers flew Markham took the win over Shiels, who has yet to finish out of the top five all season and now has five runner-up finishes, Noonan, Bores and Jeff Warnick.

Jamie Miller bolted into the lead of the 25 lap 305 feature over Foos, Jedrzejek, Dustin Stroup and Brenden Torok. Miller quickly pulled away but heavy lapped traffic by lap nine allowed Foos and Jedrzejek to close, Miller slipped off the track on lap 14 and Foos took the lead with Jedrzejek, Stroup and Miller giving chase.

Foos picked his way through traffic and took the win over Jedrzejek, Miller, Paul Weaver and Brandon Moore. Kody Brewer charged from 15th to seventh to earn the NAPA Auto Parts $500 hard charger bonus.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, July 29 with the AFCS 410 and 305 sprints and UMP late models in action.

Must See Racing Sprint Car Series

BIRCH RUN, Mich. (July 22, 2022) – Despite a litany of wild occurrences during a zany Friday night, the second Must See Racing Sprint Car Series visit of the year to Birch Run Speedway ended with a familiar result.

Bobby Santos III bounced back from a DNF in USAC Silver Crown Series competition one night earlier and landed in victory lane with his winged sprint car, despite a power outage, 45-minute red flag and a fierce charge from Jimmy McCune in a seven-lap sprint to the finish line.

Santos took the lead on lap 10 of 30 – during the restart after the night’s only stoppage – and paced the remaining distance for his third Must See Racing sprint car victory of the season and first since late April.

In victory lane, the Franklin, Mass., native stood next to his Beast Chassis race car and dedicated his win to the late Bobby East, who was tragically killed on July 13 in Westminster, Calif.

“This Beast Chassis was on rails when it counted tonight,” Santos said. “Bob and Janice (East) have always built fantastic race cars, but I think I had baby Beast (Bobby East) riding with me at the end there.

“We’re all thinking about them during this time, but I’m happy to get a Beast Chassis in victory lane tonight in their honor.”

Though East never competed with Must See Racing, he was a stalwart in open-wheel, short-track competition through the years, winning two USAC Silver Crown titles and a USAC midget championship.

Tom Jewell led the field to the green flag after a nine-car inversion, but it was outside pole-man Rick Holley who jumped out to the early lead and paced the first four circuits before Schultz roared from fifth starting spot to assume command of the field.

From there, Schultz led the next five laps and steadily pulled away from nis nearest pursuer, Bobby Santos III, before a red flag stoppage was needed on the ninth lap for a power outage in the control tower that knocked out the track’s electronic scoring system.

That interruption ended up being the turning point that led to Santos’ victory, as he jumped past Schultz on the outside when racing resumed after a 45-minute delay and never looked back again.

Despite a caution with seven circuits to go for a crash on the backstretch involving veteran Joe Speakman, Santos never relinquished control on the final restart and ultimately won by a half straightaway over five-time series champion Jimmy McCune in the end.

Even though the night was a bizarre one, with the power outage and other interruptions leading to a stop-and-start feel, Santos said afterward that he was never concerned with the quality of racing.

“The battles with Schultz and McCune were tough, but everyone with Must See and Birch Run kept their cools in what could have been a lot worse situation, with the power outage happening when it did,” Santos noted. “They’re good at running the radios and running the race, and as far as I’m concerned nothing was different from where I was sitting behind the wheel.

“I think we all felt comfortable and safe to continue on, and it definitely worked out in our favor,” he added. “It was crazy coming up through traffic; there were a lot of tough cars tonight, but we came here to win and I’m grateful we were able to do that.”

After starting 12th due to a broken nose wing during his qualifying run, McCune clawed his way through a gaggle of slower traffic to eventually end up with the runner-up honors in a remarkable comeback.

“This was a heck of a good run for us, considering everything,” McCune admitted. “It was just a lot of stupid things that set us back. We had a little oil leak in practice, the front wing broke during qualifying and then we just had to pull the suit up and drive from the back. We did some modifications for the feature to get everything working … and then my old man bet me a thousand bucks to win from the tail.

“We came up one spot short, but hopefully we put on a great show for all the fans that came out here.”

Kalamazoo winner Jason Blonde completed the podium ahead of Charlie Schultz and Joe Liguori, the two chief contenders for the season championship.

With their finishes Friday night, Schultz leaves Birch Run with a five-point lead over Liguori. Three races remain before the champion will be crowned at Pennsylvania’s Jennerstown Speedway in late August.

Liguori earned $100 as the night’s Dowker Engines Fast Qualifier, setting a time trial lap of 13.172 seconds (109.323 mph) around the four-tenths-mile, semi-banked oval to kick off the program.

It was the third straight race and the sixth time in Liguori’s Must See Racing career that he led the way during single-car qualifications.

The Florida native became the fourth driver in series history to qualify first in three consecutive events.

McCune, Jewell and Blonde each won their respective eight-lap heat races prior to the 30-lap main.

The Must See Racing Sprint Car Series season continues in eight days’ time with the return of the Engine Pro Fast Car Dash event at Michigan’s Berlin Raceway. It marks the first time in three years that Must See Racing’s national sprint cars will compete at the seven-sixteenths-mile oval in Marne, Mich.

Chase Randall Wins Teen Challenge with Sprint Invaders at East Moline!

(Bill W) East Moline, IL, July 17, 2022 – Youth has definitely been served this season with the Sprint Invaders series. Fellow teens Chase Randall and Tyler Lee duked it out Sunday night at East Moline Speedway, with Randall emerging with his third win with the series of the year. The Waco, Texas native netted $2,000 aboard the Bush’s Chicken #9.

Colton Fisher shot out to lead lap one of the 25-lap feature, but after a lap was completed, he hit a turn three rut that upset his car and did all but flip it. Suspension damage sent him pitside. The restart saw Lee assume the lead, ahead of Randall, Jamie Ball, Bret Tripplett and Dugan Thye.

Randall shot around Lee to the point when the green fell. Thye’s top five run ended after he too, bicycled in turn three and came down, flattening his left rear tire. A lap later, McCain Richards and Ryan Edwards tangled, while JJ Hickle, who had advanced from row five to battle for fourth, retired with mechanical issues.

Lee stuck with Randall on the restart and stayed low to make a pass for the lead in turn two on lap eight. A Luke Verardi spin slowed things again. Verardi was fifth at the time. Lee led Randall, Ball, Tripplett and Paul Nienhiser, who had advanced from 17th, back to green. One last slowdown occurred when Devin Wignall stopped in turn two on lap ten.

Once green, the action ensued, with Nienhiser shooting from fifth to third on lap 12. Randall began closing on Lee again, and on lap 16, snuck under him to retake the point. The leaders were in lapped traffic with five to go. Nienhiser used the opportunity to get under Lee in turn three with two to go to cinch the runner-up spot, completing a night that started with a broken axle in his heat.

Randall, Nienhiser and Lee were followed by Tripplett and Ball at the checkers. Ryan Jamison, Verardi, Chase Richards, Tanner Gebhardt, Wignall and Austin Archdale rounded out the top ten. Fisher, Thye and Randall won heats, while Fisher also claimed the Dash. Brandon Wimmer’s entry never got going as he suffered ignition issues at the night’s outset.

“I really had to get to searching after (Lee) got by me the second time,” said Randall. “I kind of found a lane that worked for me, and kind of kept working it in and made the pass. I’m just happy to be here in Victory Lane, and cap off a long weekend with a win. We’ve had a long stretch of races this month, and it’s just really fun to race up here and race at these new tracks.”

“I can’t complain,” said Nienhiser, who finished second for the fifth time this season. “You have a little success, and you run second so many times…you can get frustrated with that. Coming from the back on a technical track…we came from the back and did what we had to do to survive. By the time we got to second, Chase was a straightaway ahead of us and we ran out of time. All in all, it was a good run for us. Scott (Bonar) had the car good, no matter where we were running on the track.”

“This feels good,” says Lee, who scored his first podium in a sprint car. “I’m just getting used to the car, and it feels great to run up front with these big guys. I was edgy all the way up to the race, and worried. Then we got in it, and I settled down a little bit. Chase has been really fast here and at Knoxville. I think it’s a really big confidence booster to be able to run with him. To get some sliders and be able to pass him is always good.”

The Sprint Invaders next action will be Wednesday, July 27 at the Dubuque Speedway during festivities at the Dubuque County Fair. For more information on the Sprint Invaders, visit www.SprintInvaders.org or look us up on Facebook.

Haddy outduels Gerrits to secure MSA Angell Park Speedway triumph

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 17, 2022 – Thirty-year veteran Tim Haddy of Waupun reached into his sizable bag of tricks to fend off a late-race challenge from Will Gerrits of Waupun and secure his first Midwest Sprint Car Association A-main victory of the 2022 season Sunday, July 17 at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis.

Haddy, who has been a regular competitor with the MSA series since its inception in 1999, grabbed the initial lead of the 25-lap MSA main event from the pole position as Will Gerrits, who started on the outside of the front row, tucked into second.

By lap five, Haddy had built up a full straightaway advantage over Gerrits on the fast and tricky third-mile clay oval racing surface. Haddy caught the rear of the field on lap nine, which allowed Gerrits to cut into the lead.

Gerrits pulled to within striking distance as Haddy attempted to move past a slower car along the undulating cushion before the lone caution flag of the race appeared on lap 15 for a spin involving Tyler Davis of Franklin in turn two.

Following the restart, Haddy again powered away to a sizable lead as defending MSA champion and current point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan, who started 11th, catapulted his way into fourth on lap 16.

As Haddy closed in on slower traffic, Gerrits cut the gap once again as the laps wound down. After following in Haddy’s tire tracks for the majority of the race, Gerrits dove low to inch ahead of Haddy in turn two on the final circuit of the race.

However, Haddy battled back to regain the lead entering turn three and successfully turned back Gerrits’ spirited challenge to notch his 20th career MSA A-main victory and first MSA main event triumph since Aug. 1, 2021 at Angell Park Speedway.

Gerrits finished a close second, 2005 MSA champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett, who started fourth, finished third, Arenz placed fourth and 2011 MSA champion Ben Schmidt of Plymouth, who started seventh, wound up fifth.

“I saw him [Will Gerrits] down there on the final lap and I knew I had to do everything I could to hold him off,” Haddy said. “Luckily, I was able to do just enough to get the win tonight.”

MSA 10-lap heat race victories went to five-time MSA champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee and Lance Fassbender.

The 10th full MSA 360 Sprint Car Series racing event of the 2022 campaign drew a field of 16 entrants to the historic Angell Park Speedway third-mile clay oval.

The MSA is set to return to The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 23 for the inaugural Plymouth Racing Wall of Fame Night program.

Spectator gates open at 4:30 p.m. with MSA qualifying at 5:30 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m.

Dobmeier, Moser and Ballenger Post Wins on Hall of Fame Night Presented by Seal Pros at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (July 17, 2022) - Mark Dobmeier, Eric Moser and Dusty Ballenger emerged victorious on Sunday at Huset's Speedway during Hall of Fame Night presented by Seal Pros.

Dobmeier picked up his first Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig triumph of the season and his 69th career at Huset's Speedway after leading the final 11 laps. He is the sixth different division winner in seven A Mains this season.

"It feels like it's been way too long since I've been up here," he said. "We finally got this thing ripping. I love it."

Dobmeier ran second throughout the first half of the race before he capitalized on misfortune for Kaleb Johnson, who led the first 14 laps. Johnson got upside down after touching wheels with a driver he was putting a lap down in turn four. That brought out the second red flag and third caution of the race. Dobmeier inherited the lead and pulled away to win by 1.189 seconds.

"I could stay with him in that open traffic, but he was blistering fast when he was on his own," Dobmeier said of Johnson. "I knew when we got to lapped cars that it was going to shake up and that was going to make or break the race. That's where I tried to be a little more patient and tried to pick and choose."

Austin McCarl executed a last-lap pass for a runner-up result.

"I was a little free early, but once I got the wing back I was pretty good," he said. "I just had to figure out the race track and where I could attack and where I couldn't. (Turns) three and four was really tricky."

Riley Goodno rounded out the podium.

"We have this No. 22 car really rolling," he said. "My car was just too good at the beginning on the bottom. As the race went on the cushion got rougher and I was getting way too tight on the top. It was hard to keep a consistent rhythm going."

Matt Juhl placed fourth and Jack Dover rounded out the top five.

Dover set quick time during qualifying before Jake Neuman, Josh Schneiderman and Dobmeier picked up heat race victories.

Moser edged new points leader Zach Olivier by 0.300 seconds to win the 18-lap Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks main event.

Aaron Foote held the point for the first six laps before Moser drove around him on Lap 7. Olivier, who started 11th, advanced into second shortly after and chased Moser for the final dozen laps. The duo was separated by only a couple of car lengths and Olivier nearly pulled side by side with Moser, who was able to maintain the lead.

"I saw him there on the bottom," Moser said. "For some reason we started smoking and started losing power. I knew I just had to protect the bottom and just try to hold on. Luckily we did."

Dam Jensen rallied from 13th to third as Dustin Gulbrandson placed fourth and Tim Dann fifth.

Dann, Foote and Ron Howe were the heat race winners.

Ballenger led the second half of the 20-lap Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series to become the sixth different winner in seven races this season.

Ballenger quickly charged from his 10th starting position into the runner-up spot before passing Logan Kafka, who led the first 10 laps, at the midpoint of the feature. A lap later the second-and-final caution of the race occurred as seventh-running Brandon Bosma crashed in turn two.

Lee Goos Jr. jumped to second on the restart and stayed within striking distance of Ballenger for the remainder of the race, but Ballenger made the right moves on the track to win by 0.700 seconds.

"I had a little chip on my shoulder from last week," he said. "It was nobody's fault but my own. I'm proud of the race track for sticking to the rules.

"My car was so good. Once I got out into the lead I was actually watching the TV every time I went by. I was getting a little loose over here in turn four. I thought I better try the bottom the last couple of laps. We're just happy. We're going to drink some cold water and a lot of cold beer later."

Goos Jr. finished second with Jacob Hughes hustling from 12th to third. Kafka ended fourth and Koby Werkmeister was fifth.

The heat races were won by Andrew Sullivan, Jared Jansen, Tim Rustad and Werkmeister. Cole Vanderheiden was the B Main winner.

Soaring into the initial start would see the high-point qualifier and pole-sitting Joe B Miller battle front-row companion Quinton Benson into the first pair of corners with Benson earning the lead the first few laps.

Racing into the lead would find Braydon Cromwell take the point of the pack as Kory Schudy, Anthony Nicholson, Joe B Miller, Quinton Benson, and Zach Daum all raced within striking distance of the lead around the mid-race point.

Finding the fastest low running line and making history, Kory Schudy would grab the front of the field and hold on to the lead to notch his second win this season within POWRi WAR as Anthony Nicholson would wheel his way to a solid runner-up placement with Zach Daum placing in the final podium position.

“We finally got it done tonight after two straight nights of runner-up and this feels great. What a fun race, we didn’t know what to expect but the track was racy and a fun place to get around” said an ecstatic Kory Schudy in the Sweet Springs Missouri winner’s circle.

Maintaining a solid showing all night would find Braydon Cromwell holding steady to finish fourth as a late-race surging Quinton Benson would round out the top-five finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi WAR Sprint League feature event for Night Three of the Thunder in the Valley at Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex.

Jodie Robinson is a Placerville Speedway winner at last

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…After being within reach several times before Roseville’s Jodie Robinson finally had it all come together on Saturday to record her first career Placerville Speedway Winged Sprint Car victory.

By way of her triumph the 19-year-old reigning Knoxville Nationals Queen joins her father David and brother Ryan on the all-time Placerville Speedway Winged 360 Sprint Car win list. David, a three-time track champion on the red clay, earned 23 career wins at the track, while Ryan claimed his initial victory last season.

Sharing victory lane with Robinson on Saturday were Fair Oaks’ Jake Morgan with the Joe Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour, Diamond Springs’ Kevin Jinkerson with the Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks and Mike Miller with the Mountain Democrat Mini Trucks.

The 25-lap Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged Sprint Car feature began with eight-time track champ Andy Forsberg charging into the lead ahead of Dylan Bloomfield and Robinson. Jodie immediately found the high side to her liking and would move past both Bloomfield and Forsberg to snatch the lead on lap three.

Once traffic came into play Forsberg closed to her rear tail tank but banged the cushion extremely hard at one point, allowing Bloomfield the chance to sneak by. With heavy duty lapped traffic it kept things entertaining as Robinson had to pick her spots wisely to fend off the 16-year-old racer from Oakley. Bloomfield was all over her during the waning laps, but Robinson hung tough and crossed the Darin Stahl checkered flag for the big win.

After recording a runner up finish with the USAC Western States Midgets in May Bloomfield came back Saturday to pick up a career best Placerville Winged Sprint Car result of second. The youngster was impressive all night and came close to victory at the end. Hanford’s Michael Faccinto was also strong for the second straight week, earning the ADCO Driveline Fast Time Award, followed by a third-place effort in the feature. Forsberg and 2017 track titlist Steven Tiner completed the top-five.

Rounding out the top-10 in the main event were Justyn Cox, Shane Hopkins, Gauge Garcia, Andy Gregg and Justin Bradway.

Winged Sprint Car finish: 1. 4-Jodie Robinson[3]; 2. 33-Dylan Bloomfield[1]; 3. X1-Michael Faccinto[4]; 4. 92-Andy Forsberg[2]; 5. 7C-Steven Tiner[7]; 6. 31C-Justyn Cox[8]; 7. 21-Shane Hopkins[11]; 8. 21X-Gauge Garcia[5]; 9. 34-Andy Gregg[6]; 10. 20-Justin Bradway[14]; 11. 94-Greg Decaires V[9]; 12. 93-Stephen Ingraham[17]; 13. 33T-Jimmy Trulli[13]; 14. 9L-Luke Hayes[15]; 15. 2-Cody Spencer[18]; 16. 85-CJ Humphreys[16]; 17. 98-Chris Masters[19]; 18. 12J-John Clark[10]; 19. 2S-Jayce Steinberg[20]; 20. 21M-Michael Ing[12]

The Joe Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour also brought the action to Placerville Speedway on Saturday. Early on a torrid battle up front was seen between Placerville’s Shane Hopkins, Jake Morgan and San Jose throttle-masher Shawn Jones. The wingless warriors attacked the cushion with reckless abandon, especially in turn one where it became very technical. At one point Jones looked like he would be the man to beat, until showing Morgan the high-side of the speedway.

Once Morgan went upstairs that was all she wrote for the rest of the field. He charged around both Jones and Hopkins to scoop up the lead, before carving his way through traffic like a hot knife through butter. Morgan went to on claim his ninth career Wingless Sprint Car victory at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds venue. Hopkins, Jones, point leader Josh Young and Shawn Arriaga rounded out the top-five.

The remainder of the top-10 in the 25-lap contest was filled out by Jarrett Soares, Daniel Whitley, Nick Robfogel, Grasen Ternora and Nick Larson. Another stout field of 30 Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour competitors were on hand at the event.

Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour finish: 1. 7M-Jake Morgan[3]; 2. 51-Shane Hopkins[1]; 3. 14-Shawn Jones[4]; 4. 7EJ-Josh Young[2]; 5. 32-Shawn Arriaga[10]; 6. 12-Jarrett Soares[5]; 7. 3T-Daniel Whitley[17]; 8. 3-Nick Robfogel[6]; 9. 17T-Grasen Ternora[7]; 10. 24N-Nick Larson[11]; 11. 63-Dylan Newberry[8]; 12. 2STX-Brent Steck[14]; 13. 33-Heath Holdsclaw[19]; 14. 79-Mark Hanson[18]; 15. 7-Trey Walters[15]; 16. 16-Nathan Johnson[12]; 17. X-Jerry Kobza[13]; 18. 23-George Nielson[20]; 19. 60-Scott Clough[16]; 20. 17-Anthony Snow[9]

The Red Hawk Casino Pure Stock feature was an exciting race up front for the second consecutive week. The previous event saw Kevin Jinkerson being the chaser but this time around he found himself up front. Sacramento’s Jason Poppert, a winner in May, hounded the rear bumper of Jinkerson for virtually the entire main event. He was able to get alongside at one point, but Jinkerson fended off every attempt to earn his first victory of the season.

It marked Jinkerson’s sixth career Red Hawk Casino Pure Stock victory at the track. Poppert, Michael Murphy, Russell Murphy and Nick Baldwin rounded out the top-five.

Pirtek Renegades

New Richmond, WI, July 16, 2022

The tenth event on the schedule for the traditional sprint cars of the Pirtek Renegades was contested on Saturday night at the venerable Cedar Lake Speedway. Seventeen teams signed in for the night, split into two qualifying heat races. Jon Lewerer nabbed the win in Pirtek heat race #1, while Jake Kouba snared checkers in RTS podcast heat #2. Lewerer led all drivers in accumulating 133 passing points.

Scott Brandt and Jake Kouba redrew the front row for the 20-lap feature, with Kouba darting to the point early chased by Brandt, Brad Peterson, Zach Widdes, and Nick DaRonco. Just prior to halfway, Kouba still led and DaRonco had worked up to second in front of Peterson, Cam Schafer and Brandt. With eleven laps remaining, the #54 of Schafer got into the marbles entering turn one and took a hard lick off the concrete. Schafer emerged from the wreckage unscathed, but his sprinter was too heavily damaged to continue. On the restart, Kouba, DaRonco, Peterson and Lewerer were all working the cushion while Brandt, Bryan Roach and Mike Mueller ran down low. With a lap-and-a-half to go, DaRonco threw a slide job at Kouba in turn two. Kouba didn’t have enough momentum to sneak back underneath and DaRonco went on to claim his fourth win of the season ahead of Kouba, Peterson, Lewerer and Widdes.

The traditional sprints are off until their show at the Jackson Motorplex on August 20, giving them a few weeks off to regroup or hit the road in support of other Renegade series. The wings return to action this week for a Thursday/Friday set, starting with the Pirtek debut of the winged cars at Menomonie’s Thunder Hill Speedway. The wings then finish out the week with their lone visit of the season to Eagle Valley Speedway in Jim Falls, WI. More information on upcoming events for the Pirtek Renegades, as well as links to other Renegades series, can be found at www.umsprints.com, or on facebook.

HANSEN, SMITH, BEAGLE, & LAFANTAISIE NAIL DOWN WINS ON SLACK LUMBER NIGHT AT OHSWEKEN

By Brent Otchere

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (July 15, 2022) – Slack Lumber presented a Friday Night of Excitement at Ohsweken Speedway on July 15; Josh Hansen, Lucas Smith, Ryan Beagle, & Tyler Lafantaisie left the night with A-Main victories while fans dressed up and trick-or-treated during Halloween in July festivities.

Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars Glenn Styres - who raced earlier in the day in the NASCAR Pinty’s series race at Toronto - drew the pole position, while Liam Martin started second in the 20 lap 360 Sprint Car A-Main. Josh Hansen quickly got around the leaders after starting third while Nick Sheridan worked himself to second and applied pressure to Hansen as they both tried to earn their first career win. A caution flag came out with four laps left to go, setting up an exciting finish with Hansen and Sheridan throwing slide jobs on each other. Hansen didn’t fully clear Sheridan on one of the attempts and clipped him, sending Sheridan spinning off turn four and ending any momentum for the victory. Hansen claimed his first career 360 Sprint Car victory and became the sixth different driver in six races to win this season. Martin finished second, Mitch Brown third, Jacob Dykstra fourth, and Mikey Kruchka fifth. Even though Ryan Turner didn’t finish in the top five he will still remains the division leader, 18 points ahead of his brother Cory Turner.

Strickland's Crate Sprint Cars Adrian Stahle and Steven Beckett led the 28 drivers to start their 20 lap Crate Sprint A-Main event. Modified star Mike Bowman gained the early lead, showing that he is becoming very comfortable with his new discipline of racing. Last week’s winner Lucas Smith began to chip away at Bowman’s lead; Bowman courageously defended his lead while navigating through traffic but it was not enough for the Crate Sprint rookie as Smith got around him with nine laps left to go. The final caution of the night came out with eight laps to go, bringing everyone back for a sprint to the finish. Smith’s great restart ultimately saw him winning the race by well over a half straightaway. Bowman settled for second, while Eric Gledhill finished third on the podium. Rounding out the top five were Jesse Costa and Brett Stratford finishing fourth and fifth. Smith’s second straight win helped him remain the division leader, now 15 points ahead of Gledhill.

Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks Gofast Teeple and Kyle Andress led the 27 driver field to the green flag to start the 20 lap Thunder Stock A-Main. Mark Fawcett immediately became the driver to beat as he quickly gained the lead within the first lap from row four. Polesitter Teeple suffered a punctured tire after contact with Ryan Berry, ending his race. Two quick cautions had the field reset and allowed Dave Bailey to capitalize on the restarts and enter into the top five. Bailey however pushed a bit too hard and clipped the wall, neutralizing his surge for the lead. Amazingly it was Ryan Beagle who began to challenge for the lead while sporting major body damage. It became apparent that the damage wasn’t slowing him down as he gained the lead and cruised to his first win of the season. Fawcett came agonizingly close to his first Ohsweken victory but had to settle for second, while Bailey finished third and kept his top five streak going from the start of the season. Christopher Hale and Ron Loggie rounded out the top five. Bailey remains the division points leader, ahead by 34 points over Hale.

HRW Automotive Mini Stocks The front row of the grid featured Tim Nuell and Mike Giberson to start the 15 lap Mini Stock A-Main. The saying “rubbing is racing” was in full effect during the first three laps as drivers battled for positions. Just like last week, Wade Thorne took an early lead until a caution came out due to mechanical problems for Jason Tolton. It looked like Thorne had no one to challenge him for the rest of the race, however Tyler Lafantaisie caught up and took over the lead as he has done so many times already this season. Lafantaisie drove to his fifth victory of the season and sixth straight top five finish. Ryan Hillar finished second, while Matt Nuell rounded out the podium. The top five finished with Thorne and Mike Sarantakos respectively. Lafantaisie left the night with the $1,000 grand prize and a 78 point lead over Nick Erskine.

Up Next at Ohsweken Speedway Core-Mark presents Wall of Fame and Fan Appreciation Night on July 22 featuring the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland’s Crate Sprint Cars, Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks, and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks.

Arenz, Boden, Niznik, Loehr, Long excel
In PDTR A-main action


(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 16, 2022 – On a night that produced a close-quarters brand of wheel-to-wheel competition contested on a lightning-fast racing surface, three first-time winners collected main-event hardware in a five-division Plymouth Dirt Track Racing program featuring a special appearance from the Badger Midget Auto Racing Association at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 16.

In the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasant View Realty PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Car A-main, defending PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ and current point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan notched his fifth main event triumph of the 2022 season at The Plymouth Dirt Track in flag-to-flag fashion.

2016 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing Micro Sprint champion Zach Boden of Cambridge posted his first-career Badger Midget A-main victory in the 25-lap Badger Midget Auto Racing Association main event.
Late Model newcomer Paul Niznik of Medford used a late-race pass to secure his first PDTR Late Model A-main victory in the 25-lap Sheboygan’s Country B93.7 Late Model A main in his debut PDTR appearance.

2018 PDTR Grand National champion Matt Loehr of Dotyville cruised to his third 25-lap Oostburg Automotive PDTR Grand National A-main triumph of the 2022 campaign.

Shane Long of Sheboygan Falls led from start to finish to earn his first career PDTR B Mod A-main victory in the 25-lap Next Stop Insurance B Mod main event.

Travis Arenz led the 360 Sprint Car field to the green flag from the pole position and outpowered outside front row starter Alex Pokorski of West Bend at the start of the 25-lap A main to lead the opening lap.

Arenz then proceeded to open up a comfortable half-straightaway cushion over Pokorski with fourth starter Tony Wondra of Campbellsport in third. On lap 5, Pokorski got sideways and flipped into the turn four fence, while 2018 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Justin Miller of Plymouth simultaneously flipped in turn three to bring out the red flag.

On the restart, two-time PDTR champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee, who started seventh, moved into fourth. One lap later, the caution flag was displayed to the field for the stalled car of Bill Taylor of Boltonville in turn four.

When the race resumed, Arenz again bolted into the lead while 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Plymouth, who started eighth, moved into third in the running order. Two laps later, the hard-charging Schmidt worked past Wondra to advance to second in turn four.

As the leaders started to work their way through slower traffic on lap 10, two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh began to make his presence felt as he moved into third on lap 15 before powering past Schmidt into second on lap 20.

Meanwhile, Arenz successfully negotiated his way through the rear of the field as the laps wound down to secure his 15th career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory and 27th career Midwest Sprint Car Association main event triumph.

McMullen had to settle for second, Schmidt was third, fifth starter Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum finished fourth and Davis rounded out the top five.

Outside front row starter Aaron Muhle of Beaver Dam grabbed the lead with third starter Kevin Douglas of Madison slipping into second on the opening lap of the 25-lap Badger Midget A main.

After Douglas drifted high in turn four lap 4, which allowed 10th starter Zach Boden and R.J. Corson of Markham, Ill. to move past and engage in a duel for second place. On lap 6, Boden used the low groove to gain second and quickly cut the gap on Muhle.

Boden reeled in Muhle on lap 8 and two laps later he powered into the lead in turn two as Badger Midgets points leader Todd Kluever of Sun Prairie moved into third from his eighth starting spot.

By lap 16, Boden, who owns nine PDTR Micro Sprint A-main victories, had built up a full-straightaway cushion over Muhle before the lone caution of the race appeared on lap 20 for the stalled car of Denny Smith of Mukwonago in turn four.

On the restart, Boden again pulled away from Muhle on the way to his first career Badger Midget A-main victory. Muhle finished second, Kluever placed third, Corson was fourth and seventh starter Datlyn England of Springfield, Ill. placed fifth.

After the initial start of the 25-lap Late Model A main was aborted for a spin involving Don Singer in turn two, outside front row starter Joe Bongiorno of Milwaukee bolted into the lead on the drop of the green flag with polesitter Paul Niznik following in second.

On lap 2, the second and final caution flag was displayed when four-time and defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland spun in turn two and was collected by Don Singer and Chad Ludwigson of Sheboygan Falls.

The race was red flagged as Schmidt received medical assistance after exiting his car under his own power, while the cars of Singer and Ludwigson had to be separated after being wedged together in the incident.

Bongiorno held the top spot on the restart with Niznik following close behind. On lap 6, four-time PDTR Late Model champ Brad Mueller of Random Lake moved into third after starting seventh. Three laps later, Mueller moved in to pressure Niznik for second. However, Niznik pulled ahead on the ensuing circuits and moved in to hound Bongiorno for the lead on lap 14.

On lap 17, Niznik ducked low to pull even with the high-riding Bongiorno as the two drivers engaged in an entertaining side-by-side duel for the lead over the next six laps before Niznik finally powered his way into the lead on lap 23.

Niznik held tight over the final two circuits to secure his first career PDTR Late Model A-main victory in his Plymouth Dirt Track Racing debut. Bongiorno finished second, eighth starter Charlie Schmidt of Oostburg placed third, Jim Schmidt of Cleveland moved up from the 11th starting spot to place fourth and ninth starter Turk Letizia of Milwaukee finished fifth.

2010 PDTR Grand National champ Brian Gilles of Plymouth drove the Bender Racing 23K car into the lead from the pole position on the opening lap of the 25-lap Grand National A main.

On lap 6, third starter Matt Loehr steered the Bender Racing 89 machine around Gilles into the lead along the high groove in turn three.

Loehr then proceeded to build up a comfortable lead before the first of two caution flags appeared on lap 10 for a two-car incident in turn two involving Steven Weber of Plymouth and MavrickRuh of Elkhart Lake.

On the restart, eighth starter Josh Pierce of Fredonia worked the high groove to move into second on lap 14.

Loehr remained strong at the head of the field in the closing stages of the race en route to his 12th career PDTR Grand National A-main victory. Pierce finished second, sixth starter Luke Scholten of Oostburg finished third, 2019 PDTR Grand National champion Tyler Kulow of Plymouth finished fourth after starting fourth and Steven Weber recovered to finish fifth.

Polesitter Shane Long seized the top spot on lap 1 of the 25-lap B Mod A main before the lone caution flag of the race was displayed on lap 3 when rookie Parker Glander of Sheboygan Falls stopped in turn two.

On the restart, sixth starter Jonathon Baumann of Sheboygan worked the outside groove to vault his way into fourth in turn three. Meanwhile, fifth starter and current PDTR B Mod points leader Andy Welter of Hartford and Brendan Ostrowski of Milwaukee, who started fourth, engaged in a heated duel for second before Welter assumed the runner-up spot on lap 5.

Three laps later, Welter moved in to pressure Long for the lead. However, Long would have none of Welter’s challenges as he proceeded to pull away to extend his lead to five car lengths on lap 15 and 10 car lengths on lap 20.

Long was not to be denied as he cruised over the final five laps on the way to his first career PDTR B Mod A-main victory. Welter finished second, Ostrowski wound up third, seventh starter James Rautmann of Howards Grove placed fourth and eighth starter Brian Konitzer of Sheboygan rounded out the top five.

Ben Schmidt was the fastest 360 Sprint Car overall qualifier with a lap of 12.030 seconds.

Arenz, Boden, Niznik, Loehr, Longexcel
In PDTR A-main action

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 16, 2022–On a night that produced aclose-quarters brand of wheel-to-wheel competition contested on a lightning-fast racing surface, three first-time winners collected main-event hardware in a five-divisionPlymouth Dirt Track Racing program featuring a special appearance from the Badger Midget Auto Racing Association at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 16.

In the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasant View Realty PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Car A-main, defending PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ and current point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan notched his fifth main event triumph of the 2022 season at The Plymouth Dirt Track in flag-to-flag fashion.

2016 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing Micro Sprint champion Zach Boden of Cambridge posted his first-career Badger Midget A-main victory in the 25-lap Badger Midget Auto Racing Association main event.
Late Model newcomer Paul Niznik of Medford used a late-race pass to secure his first PDTR Late Model A-main victory in the 25-lap Sheboygan’s Country B93.7 Late Model A main in his debut PDTR appearance.

2018 PDTR Grand National champion Matt Loehr of Dotyville cruised to his third 25-lap Oostburg Automotive PDTR Grand National A-main triumph of the 2022 campaign.

Shane Long of Sheboygan Falls led from start to finish to earn to his first career PDTR B Mod A-main victory in the 25-lap Next Stop Insurance B Mod main event.

Travis Arenz led the 360 Sprint Car field to the green flag from the pole position and outpowered outside front row starter Alex Pokorski of West Bend at the start of the 25-lap A main to lead the opening lap.

Arenz then proceeded to open up a comfortable half-straightaway cushion over Pokorski with fourth starter Tony Wondra of Campbellsport in third. On lap 5, Pokorski got sideways and flipped into the turn four fence, while 2018 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Justin Miller of Plymouth simultaneously flipped in turn three to bring out the red flag.

On the restart, two-time PDTR champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee, who started seventh, moved into fourth. One lap later, the caution flag was displayed to the field for the stalled car of Bill Taylor of Boltonville in turn four.

When the race resumed, Arenz again bolted into the lead while 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Plymouth, who started eighth, moved into third in the running order. Two laps later, the hard-charging Schmidt worked past Wondra to advance to second in turn four.

As the leaders started to work their way through slower traffic on lap 10, two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh began to make his presence felt as he moved into third on lap15 before powering past Schmidt into second on lap 20.

Meanwhile, Arenz successfully negotiated his way through the rear of the field as the laps wound down to secure his 15th career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory and 27th career Midwest Sprint Car Association main event triumph.

McMullen had to settle for second, Schmidt was third, fifth starter Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum finished fourth and Davis rounded out the top five.

Outside front row starter Aaron Muhle of Beaver Dam grabbed the lead with third starter Kevin Douglas of Madison slipping into second on the opening lap of the 25-lap Badger Midget A main.

After Douglas drifted high in turn four lap 4, which allowed 10th starter Zach Boden and R.J. Corson of Markham, Ill. to move past and engage in a duel for second place. On lap 6, Boden used the low groove to gain second andquickly cut the gap on Muhle.

Boden reeled in Muhle on lap 8 and two laps later he powered into the lead in turn two as Badger Midgets points leader Todd Kluever of Sun Prairie moved into third from his eighth starting spot.

By lap 16, Boden, who owns nine PDTR Micro Sprint A-main victories, had built up a full-straightaway cushion over Muhle before the lone caution of the race appeared on lap 20 for the stalled car of Denny Smith of Mukwonago in turn four.

On the restart, Boden again pulled away from Muhle on the way to his first career Badger Midget A-main victory. Muhle finished second, Kluever placed third, Corson was fourth and seventh starter Datlyn England of Springfield, Ill. placed fifth.

After the initial start of the 25-lap Late Model A main was aborted for a spin involving Don Singer in turn two, outside front row starter Joe Bongiorno of Milwaukee bolted into the lead on the drop of the green flag with polesitter Paul Niznik following in second.

On lap 2, the second and final caution flag was displayed when four-time and defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland spun in turn two and was collected by Don Singer and Chad Ludwigson of Sheboygan Falls.

The race was red flagged as Schmidt received medical assistance after exiting his car under his own power, while the cars of Singer and Ludwigson had to be separated after being wedged together in the incident.

Bongiorno held the top spot on the restart with Niznik following close behind. On lap 6, four-time PDTR Late Model champ Brad Mueller of Random Lake moved into third after starting seventh. Three laps later, Mueller moved in to pressure Niznik for second. However, Niznik pulled ahead on the ensuing circuits and moved into to hound Bongiorno for the lead on lap 14.

On lap 17, Niznik ducked low to pull even with the high-riding Bongiorno as the two drivers engaged in an entertaining side-by-side duel for the lead over the next six laps before Niznik finally powered his way into the lead on lap 23.

Niznik held tight over the final two circuits to secure his first career PDTR Late Model A-main victory in his Plymouth Dirt Track Racing debut. Bongiorno finished second, eighth starter Charlie Schmidt of Oostburg placed third, Jim Schmidt of Cleveland moved up from the 11th starting spot to place fourth and ninth starter Turk Letizia of Milwaukee finished fifth.

2010 PDTR Grand National champ Brian Gilles of Plymouth drove the Bender Racing 23K car into the lead from the pole position on the opening lap of the 25-lap Grand National A main.

On lap 6, third starter Matt Loehr steered the Bender Racing 89 machine around Gilles into the lead along the high groove in turn three.

Loehr then proceeded to build up a comfortable lead before the first of two caution flags appeared on lap 10 for a two-car incident in turn two involving Steven Weber of Plymouth and Mavrick Ruh of Elkhart Lake.

On the restart, eighth starter Josh Pierce of Fredonia worked the high groove to move into second on lap 14.

Loehr remained strong at the field over the field in the closing stages of the race en route to his 12th career PDTR Grand National A-main victory. Pierce finished second, sixth starter Luke Scholten of Oostburg finished third, 2019 PDTR Grand National champion Tyler Kulow of Plymouth finished fourth after starting fourth and Steven Weber recovered to finish fifth.

Polesitter Shane Long seized the top spot on lap 1 of the 25-lap B Mod A main before the lone caution flag of the race was displayed on lap 3 when rookie Parker Glander of Sheboygan Falls stopped in turn two.

On the restart, sixth stater Jonathon Baumann of Sheboygan worked the outside groove to vault his way into fourth in turn three. Meanwhile, fifth starter and current PDTR B Mod points leader Andy Welter of Hartford and Brendan Ostrowski of Milwaukee, who started fourth, engaged in a heated duel for second before Welter assumed the runner-up spot on lap 5.

Three laps later, Welter moved in to pressure Long for the lead. However, Long would have none of Welter’s challenges as he proceeded to pull away to extend his lead to five car lengths on lap 15 and 10 car lengths on lap 20.

Long was not to be denied as he cruised over the final five laps on the way to his first career PDTR B Mod A-main victory. Welter finished second, Ostrowski wound up third, seventh starter James Rautmann of Howards Grove placed fourth and eighth starter Brian Konitzer of Sheboygan rounded out the top five.

Ben Schmidt was the fastest 360 Sprint Car overall qualifier with a lap of 12.030 seconds.

Kekich king at Michaels mercer raceway winning $6000 in 410 sprint summer slam. Schaffer jr wins $1000 in crate mods; Thompson wins 4th of season in mini stocks.

By Jim Balentine
(Mercer,Pa)

On Saturday Michaels mercer raceway was able to complete its 6th show of 2022. Adam Kekich picked up his biggest win in his career by taking the $6000 summer slam 1st place money. Jeff Schaffer Jr. won his 3rd crate 602 sportsman of the year picking up $1000. Defending champ Andy Thompson won his 4th mini stock feature of the year.

On the biggest night of racing at Michaels mercer raceway this season 73 entries in 3 divisions graced the pit area with a filled grandstand as the 1st annual summer slam took place on a night where Mother Nature would attempt to intervene by watering the track but stopped soon after and only delayed the show by a 1/2 hour after the 2nd 410 sprint heat.

The 410 sprints ran by the all star sprint format and AJ Flick set fast time over the 25 car field in qualifying with a 13.287 lap around the 3/8 mile bent egg oval.

The dash for cash would set the front 3 rows for the 410 sprint feature with Carl Bowser picking up the $500 for the win and the pole position for the 30 lap feature.

The $6000 summer slam 30 lap sprint car feature would have dash winner 4 time winner Carl Bowser and 11 time winner Adam Kekich on the front row. Bowser would lead the first 5 laps going back and forth with Kekich until lap 6 when Kekich took over already in lapped traffic. Bowser then regained the lead for 2 more laps until Kekich got around him on lap 9 and proceeded with ease through lapped traffic increasing his lead. Newcomer Paul Colagiovanni would come out of nowhere at halfway and get around both Kuriger and Bowser to take 2nd but would eventually have a flat tire and had to change it and restart at the tail. A red flag on lap 18 for a hard flip by George Englert in turn 2 which also involved top runners Carl Bowser and Dan Kuriger would stop the action. Englert was not hurt and Bowser had too much front end damage to continue but Kuriger was given his spot back to continue in 2nd place with the second highest 410 sprint feature winner in the northeast AJ Flick restarting 3rd. Kekich would take off on the restart and was not challenged the remaining 12 laps and would win by .095 collecting his biggest win ever in the highest local non sanctioned 2022 410 sprint car amount in $6000 and earning his 12th career 410 mercer win.
“First off I have to give all glory to god” who says you can’t pass at mercer. Carl is a clean driver and I have no issues racing with him side by side. The track was racey you can run the top or bottom! The money helps with a small budget like we have. Thank you to all you fans here for supporting this place l. I try to put on a good show for you fans and I hope it paid off! This win is for all of you!” Last weeks winner Dan Kuriger finished 2nd, AJ Flick 3rd, Brandon Spithaler from 11th finished 4th and Logan McCandless 5th.

The Fastrak/602 crate modifieds with their highest car count of the season with 24 cars vying for the $1000 to win would start off with numerous cautions. It was an all Schaffer front row as 3 time winner Brian Schaffer and 2 time winner Jeff Schaffer Jr led the field. Jeff Jr. would take the lead as Brian would fall back to 5th on lap 6 as Brandon Ritchey , Michael Kristyak, and Jeff Schaffer Sr all got around the point leader. A few more caution flags would fly until the field settled down. Ritchey and Brian Schaffer would try to catch the youngster but we’re unable as Jeff Schaffer Jr. scored his 3rd career win all this year and took home $1000. The soft spoken Schaffer jr would say “ it feels great !!! I have to thank the whole Schaffer family we had a family reunion earlier today and this is good” Brandon Ritchey was 2nd, Brian Schaffer 3rd, Michael Kristyak 4th and Jeff Schaffer Sr 5th.

Dillon Thorne would lead the 24 car mini stock 15 lap feature to the green in the nightcapper paying $400 to win. Braden Bice and DJ McCrae would tangle along with Adam Aley in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. Point leader and 3 time winner Andy Thompson from his 8th starting spot would maneuver through the pack in the outside passing cars. Thorne would hold the lead until Randy Ealy and Thompson would restart next to him on the next yellow. That enabled both to get around Thorne on the restart as Thompson would take the lead and go on to win his 4th of the season and 9th overall. “I always go high on the first lap because they all fight for the bottom and tear stuff up and you can advance on the high side without crashing.” Randy Ealy was 2nd, Tim Callahan from 10th finished 3rd, Thorne 4th and Trevn Schaffer up from 9th to finish 5th.

Brandt Cramer and Garrett Davenport won the 2 jr sprint features. Cramer won his 1st ever in his first year running as Davenport added to his Mercer win total.

Next week will be the “Big Mav classic” featuring the Racesaver 305s plus the first appearance of the Penn/Ohio pro stocks along with the Fastrak/602 modifieds and mini stocks.

Shawn Donath Slams the Door on the ESS Competition

July 15, 2022 By Barbara Patterson

Shawn Donath has been knocking on victory lane’s door numerous times this season and Friday night at Freedom Motorsports Park the door opened. Donath crossed the threshold four car lengths ahead of the field to park his Panther Frameworx in the winner’s circle. After doing a wing dance, an excited Donath said, “I’m really happy with the way things are going right now and I have to thank my team for their hard work.”

Local favorite, Jared Zimbardi, drew the Pinnacle Pole to lead the field to the green flag. On the start, Zimbardi left room on the inside and Donath, who started third, blasted through the opening to take over first position. Once he took the lead, Donath led all 25 laps while Zimbardi ran the high groove to cross the finish line in second. Zimbardi’s podium finish added to his outstanding night of capturing the Riffenburgh Fast Time award and winnning the first E & V Energy heat race.

While Donath and Zimbardi were up front, there was a torrid battle in positions three through six. Jason Barney, Sammy Reakes, Jordan Poirier, and Dylan Swiernik kept the crowd entertained by making passes on each other low and high lap after lap. There were times during the Lucas Oil feature when this group was two and three wide. Swiernik ripped the top to get around his competitors for third and was awarded the Hard Charger of the race. Point leader Poirier finished fourth and rounding out the top five was Reakes. Sixth through tenth were Jason Barney, Davie Franek, local Kyle Drum, Chuck Hebing, and Jeff Cook, the Cobra Coaches/Mary Ennis Dash winner.

BOWMAN BAGS MERRITTVILLE ACTION SPRINT TOUR WIN

by Tommy Goudge with files from Jonathon Howe

THOROLD, Ont. (July 16, 2022) – Mike Bowman took his second Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty's A-Main win of the season on Saturday night at Merrittville Speedway.

Austin Roes and Mathieu Bardier led the field to the green flag for the 25 lap A-Main, and Bardier took the early lead. Every time Bardier was able to build a lead however, caution flags brought the field back to him. Eventually Mike Bowman, the 2021 Merrittville Modified champion, worked his way to the front from row four. Bowman surprised Bardier by making the winning pass on the outside with Bardier firmly committed to the bottom. Row five starter Jacob Dykstra also got by Bardier for second after a late restart, but ran out of time to catch Bowman.

The win was Bowman's first in a Crate Sprint Car at Merrittville, and his second AST victory. Dykstra and Bardier took podium finishes, followed by Steven Beckett and row seven starter Allan Downey. The top five finish was a reward for Downey and his crew who spent the day building a car following a grinding crash in weekly competition at Ohsweken on Friday night. Heat race wins went to Bardier, Bowman, and Seth Roy, another driver who had to thrash due to crash damage the previous night.

The Action Sprint Tour will next be in competition on Monday, August 15 at Ohsweken Speedway. Visit www.actionsprinttour.com for more information.

JUSTIN SANDERS WINS 12th ANNUAL HOWARD KAEDING CLASSIC IN WATSONVILLE

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (July 16, 2022) – Multi-time Ocean Sprints champion Justin Sanders of Aromas knocked another big victory off the checklist, winning the $6900-to-win 12th Annual Howard Kaeding Classic at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville on Saturday night. Sanders topped Lincoln’s Blake Carrick in a tight duel in the NARC Fujitsu General USA Sprint Car Series action.

Sanders had to lead the way through ferocious lapped traffic, leaning on his veteran experience at the quarter-mile at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds to defeat his younger challengers.

“Yeah you know it’s so hard to not get worked up and start doing dumb stuff. I was trying to watch (the traffic) and they were running kind of the same speed,” Sanders said. “I saw Blake (Carrick) stick his nose in off of turn two and I was like ‘Man, I know I didn’t lap him so he’s got to be in second.’ I know he’s really good on the bottom. It was a long race and I got some arm pump from running as hard I could!”

Sanders kicked off the race-winning effort by taking the six-lap Sunnyvalley/Martin Motorsports dash worth $400. Both 2021 HK winner Sean Becker of Roseville and fifth-starting Dominic Scelzi of Fresno, the NARC points leader, suffered flat right rear tires during an opening lap caution.

Sanders grabbed the lead with Tim Kaeding taking a quick look inside of him. Traffic was already presenting itself in front of Sanders by the fifth lap. Joel Myers, Jr. of Sebastopol dove inside Sanders in turn three on lap nine but could not complete the pass. Sanders got a reprieve when his teammate Max Mittry of Redding stopped in turn four on the same lap with a flat right rear of his own.

Fremont’s Shane Golobic drove into third on the restart while ARP/Martin Motorsports Fast-Time qualifier Willie Croft drifted back to sixth. Carrick charged from 12th, passing Tim Kaeding for fourth in turn four on lap 15. He quickly took third as well on lap 17. He used lapped traffic to advance past Myers in turn two on lap 20, then set his sights on Sanders.

Carrick made several bids on the inside of Sanders over the final 10 laps in a thrilling conclusion to the weekend. Sanders drove through lapped traffic, at times splitting side-by-side lapped cars up the middle, to keep the lead from Carrick. Sanders used an additional lapped car on the final lap to gain a .856 second advantage over at the finish. Myers finished third while Tim Kaeding rounded out the top-four. An impressive 22nd to fifth run for DJ Netto of Hanford netted him an $800 Hard Charger from Martin Motorsports and Swift Metal Finishing as well.

“I didn’t actually know I was in second and I was catching (Sanders) and I looked at the leaderboard with nine to go,” Carrick said. “It was just tough in lapped traffic. I just can’t thank my guys enough. We’ve been super good the last five races.”

DJ Keldsen of Newman and his team decided on Friday to join the Watsonville action this weekend. The decision paid off by taking Saturday’s 20-lap Hobby Stock feature.

Watsonville’s Steve Remde led the way, including through a restart on lap three. Keldsen started fifth but was up to second on the restart. Keldsen looked inside of Remde on a few occasions but never completed the pass. Friday night winner and points leader Joe Gallaher moved from 12th starting position up to fourth by lap eight.

Bobby Gallaher, Adriane Frost of Watsonville, and Norm Ayers of Corralitos crashed in turn four to bring out a caution on lap eight. Gallaher was unable to rejoin the race. Keldsen took the lead on the restart. Joe Gallaher’s bid to drive to the front ended with contact from Sam Kennedy on lap 15. Kennedy was relegated to the pits, while Gallaher was able to come back from the pits to stay on the lead lap.

Keldsen topped Remde, Brady Muller of Santa Cruz, Frost, and rookie Jay Gardner of Santa Cruz at the finish.

Ocean Speedway continues this Friday night with the next round of the Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo, IMCA Sport Modifieds, Police-In-Pursuit, Four Bangers, and South Bay Dwarf Cars in action!

Xavier Doney Doubles Down in POWRi WAR Victories at Valley Speedway

Belleville, IL. (7/16/22) Xavier Doney would continue to ride the wave of winning momentum with the Lucas Oil POWR Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League at Valley Speedway for Night Two of the Thunder in the Valley & Lawson Memorial Weekend Event to earn his second straight feature victory.

Early on track accomplishments would witness Kory Schudy clock top-time with a 13.865-lap as heat racing action would find Quinton Benson, Cody Baker, and Ricky Lewis each earn a heat race competition victory.

Soaring into the initial start would see the high-point qualifier and pole-sitting Xavier Doney fly into the first pair of corners to claim the front of the field over his front-row companion Ricky Lewis to lead the first few laps.

Finding speed on the highline, Ricky Lewis would snatch the lead away from Doney on the second revolution with Quinton Benson, Kory Schudy, and Doney all hanging close to the leading Lewis.

Battling all over Valley Speedway with slide jobs and crossovers aplenty, Kory Schudy would overtake Lewis for the point of the pack with Xavier Doney, Joe B Miller, and Anthony Nicholson all inside the top five.

Finding the right time to pass for the lead, Xavier Doney would grab the front of the field late by using a middle-of-turn-two maneuver and hold on for the final five laps notching his second career POWRi WAR win.

“Our crew has had really good teamwork this weekend, the track has been completely different both nights and the team has reacted really well. I ended up going back a little on the start but then I twisted some knobs and just went up top where the speed was” explained an ecstatic Xavier Doney in the Grain Valley Missouri winner’s circle.

Maintaining a solid showing all night would find Kory Schudy finish runner-up for the second straight night as Ricky Lewis hung to the high-side to place third. Joe B Miller would stay within the hunt for the front to finish fourth with a late-race surging and hard-charging Steven Russell rounding out the top-five finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi WAR Sprint League feature event for Night Two of the Thunder in the Valley & Lawson Memorial at Valley Speedway.

Karter Sarff Shines at Valley Speedway with POWRi National & West Midget Leagues

 Belleville, IL. (7/16/22) Karter Sarff would fend off all challengers in an action-packed thriller at Valley Speedway Saturday night to earn his first career feature victory with the Lucas Oil POWRi National & West Midget Leagues in Night Two of the Thunder in the Valley Weekend.

Early POWRi National & West Midget League competition would see Chase McDermand start the night on the right foot by clocking a 13.521-second lap and notch the quickest hot-lap time as Gavan Boschele and Emilio Hoover each would earn heat race victories.

Launching the field on the initial green flag launch would find high point qualifier Chase McDermand line up with Emilio Hoover opening on the outside of the front row as McDermand would take the initial racing lead. Using the low-line momentum McDermand and Kyle Jones would battle feverishly with Boschele and Brenham Crouch quickly closing on the frontrunners.

Challenged early and often, McDermand would appear to be on his way to repeating the weekend when ninth starting Karter Sarff worked his way through the field to pull even with the leading McDermand with a tough-fought battle breaking out for the front position between Sarff, Boschele, McDermand, Jones, and the hard-charging Mitchell Davis.

Fending off all competitors, Karter Sarff would eventually emerge victorious by sticking to a clean-middle line of racing with Chase McDermand settling into finishing runner-up as Gavan Boschele completed the features podium finishers.

“I can’t begin to explain what this means to us as a family team. We wanted this so damn bad, there were times when we wanted to give up but this team doesn’t have any quit in it. That’s what makes this win so special” said a successful Karter Sarff in the Valley Speedway victory lane.

Racing from deep in the field, Jace Park would find the front of the field late to finish fourth as Mitchell Davis advanced nine positions rounding out the Lucas Oil POWRi National & West Midget Leagues top-five finishers at Valley Speedway for Night Two of the Thunder in the Valley Weekend.

Kissinger Claims Win #4 at Clinton County

Mill Hall, PA – Ryan Kissinger of Bloomsburg is a contender for the season RaceSaver Sprint Car championship as he claimed this fourth win on Friday night at Clinton County. “We are having fun and just focus on one race at a time,” said Kissinger in Victory. Travis McClelland of Littlestown won his second feature event of the season in the Central PA Legends division. Other winners included Lock Haven’s Jeffrey Weaver in the 270 Micro Sprints, Scranton’s Johnny Smith in the 600 Micro Sprints and Shawn Stahl of New Columbia in the 4 Cylinder Division.

Dustin Prettyleaf of Williamsport led the opening laps of the RaceSaver Sprint Car 25 lap main event. At the completion of the fifth circuit, Prettyleaf led Kissinger, Johnny Smith, Jeffrey Weaver and Josh Beamer. As the leaders approached lapped traffic, Kissinger closed in on Prettyleaf and was able to execute a pass on lap number 7. The caution came out on lap number nine, when Reed Thompson and Logan Jones tangled in turn number two. On lap number 12, Timmy Bittner moved into fourth place and took the third postion on lap number 18. Kissinger weaved his way through lapped traffic, with Beamer hoping for Kissinger to make a mistake. At one point Beamer was within striking distance, but Kissinger made a bold move and split between two lapped cars going down the back stretch. A caution slowed the field on lap 22, when Frank Rusnock spun in turn two. Kissinger brought the field back up to speed on the restart. Beamer went to the pits, moving Bittner up to second with Prettyleaf in third, seventh place starter Garrett Bard restarted in fourth and Tylor Cochran moved into the top five. At the finish, Kissinger held off Bittner, Prettyleaf, Bard and Cochran. Sixth though tenth were Dale Schweikart, Matt Tebbs, Jeffrey Weaver, Neil Petock, and Josh Fox. Heat races were won by Bard, Smith, and Kissinger.

Chris Transeau of Abbottstown and Travis McClelland of Littlestown started on the front row of the 20 lap Central PA Legends 20 lap feature event. McClelland took the top spot at the drop of the green flag. Transeau ran in second with Bob Stough ran in the third spot. Following a series of cautions on laps two and three, McClelland executed perfect restarts to keep Transeau and Stough behind him. At the halfway point of the event, the top three remained unchanged as Keegan McGrew and Bryan Wagaman completed the top five. On lap number 12, the top three cars began to encounter lapped traffic. In the closing laps, Transeau and Stough tried everything they had to get around McClelland but couldn’t make a pass before the checkered flag. “I know they were both there,” said McClelland in victory lane. “It was a hard-fought battle, but it was exciting. The track was great.” The top five included McClelland, Transeau, Stough, Choya Young and Logan Carbaugh. Sixth through tenth were Tyler Kaylor, Justin Wagaman, Rick Hartwig, Cory Phillips, and Chad Ernest. Heat races were won by McClelland, Stough and Transeau.

Hunter Zimmerman and Mac Wert lead the field of 270 Micro Sprints to the green flag. Zimmerman quickly took command of the field with Cory Stabley, Timmy Bittner, Jeffrey Weaver and Bobby Sanso in the top five. Weaver moved into second on lap number six, but Zimmerman had established a half of a straight-away lead over the rest of the field. Weaver was gaining on Zimmerman, who appeared to be on way to securing his first career win at the speedway. However, misfortune stuck on lap number nine, when Zimmerman’s car stopped on the front stretch, giving the lead to Weaver. Weaver restarted the race with Stabley, Bittner, Sanso and Brayden Spencer in the top five. Weaver raced to the finish to secure the win. Bobby Sanso was second, Spencer third, Wert was fourth, and Stabley completed the top five. Sixth through tenth were Bittner, Skeetz Hockenbrock, Logan Hammaker, Jim Barkey and Evan Dickey. Heat races were won by Weaver and Spencer.

In 600 Micro Sprint competition, Cody Hauck led up to the halfway mark. Johnny Smith, who started fourth made a pass for the lead with Hauck, Sierra Hauck, Trevor Teats and Mikey Smith running in the top five. Mikey Smith brought out the events only yellow on lap number 10 when his car stopped on the front stretch. Smith held off the challenge of Hauck to claim the victory. Teats finished third, with Weaver and S. Hauck completing the top five. Smith also won the heat race.

Hunter Flook started on the front row of the Four Cylinder main event. On lap number five, Flook led Zak Kline, Andrew Rickets, Blake Snyder and Anthony Potter. Snyder brough out the caution on lap number 6 to regroup the field for the restart. Rickets moved into second on lap number seven as Shawn Stahl moved into the top five. Following a lap nine restart, Flook, Rickets, Stahl, Chloe Smith and Coty Maines were running in the top five. Flook crossed the line first, but failed post-race inspection, giving Stahl the win. Cody Maines was second, followed by Bryun Hackenberg, Joey Snook and Donald Wynn. Sixth through tenth were Zak Kline, Troy Bennett, Adam Harris, Anthony Potter, and Summer Beachel.

DOMINIC SCELZI SCORES THRILLING VICTORY IN FRIDAY NIGHT OPENER FOR HOWARD KAEDING CLASSIC

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (July 15, 2022) – With nearly half a dozen challengers for the top position, the Friday night Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo portion of the 12th Howard Kaeding Classic in Watsonville did not disappoint, as current NARC points leader Dominic Scelzi of Fresno earned his first career HK Classic win. The victory opens the weekend at the Ocean Speedway at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds with Saturday’s conclusion to feature the NARC Fujitsu 410 Sprint Cars battling for $6900 to win.

Bud Kaeding spearheads the efforts to honor his grandfather, Hall of Famer Howard Kaeding. Bud’s night began with winning the $300 Martin Motorsports fast-time then winning the $800 Western Metal/Martin Motorsports dash. Those performances set him up from the pole position for the 30-lap feature presented by CVC Concrete.

Kaeding leapt into the lead while Justin Sanders and 2021 Friday winner Kaleb Montgomery drag raced for second. Action slowed for Gilroy’s Kurt Nelson stopped in turn two. Sanders looked inside Kaeding for the lead before a caution on lap five involving Lemoore’s Gauge Garcia. Scelzi had started 11th and drove to fifth by that stage. Meanwhile Mitchell Faccinto found something on the bottom of turns three and four to nearly grab the lead from Kaeding. Faccinto slid up in front of Kaeding to lead lap nine.

DJ Netto staged a furious battle with Sanders for third before Sanders spun in turn three on lap 12. Tim Kaeding had overcome a 19th place starting position to drive into fifth on the restart. Bud Kaeding threw the kitchen sink at Faccinto for the lead on the restart, but Faccinto held the position. Three-wide action developed for second that was halted by Concord’s Joey Ancona in turn two on lap 14.

The three-wide excitement continued during the restart before Bud Kaeding clipped the backstretch wall which collected Penngrove’s Chase Johnson, ending both of their evenings. Netto tried to slide Faccinto on the restart for the lead but the caution flew yet again, this time involving Hollister’s Ryan Bernal in the second corner on lap 16.

Scelzi then took his turn at attempting the bottom to drive past Faccinto but couldn’t complete the pass. Two-by-two action among the top-four was stopped by a lap 19 caution for Bryce Eames of Santa Maria. Scelzi finally clicked on the bottom to lead lap 20 by a nose and he completed a slider to lead lap 21. Tim Kaeding’s presence was felt as he drove into third, then drove past Faccinto for second with three to go. Scelzi held on for the win followed by Kaeding, Faccinto, Netto and 17th starting Blake Carrick of Lincoln. Kaeding won the $400 Hard Charger for his efforts while Chase Johnson was awarded the Beer Optics Hard Luck.

“For the racing we ran I wanted to celebrate and do some donuts, but I didn’t win the race. TK (Tim Kaeding) won the race. I’m a little bit of a slow learner. The first couple of times he got me I was like ‘oh that’s weird’ then I figured it out,” Scelzi said. “In all honesty you can’t really ask for a whole lot more (with the track). There was a lot of passing and at the end of the day I was extremely happy with the track conditions.”

Oakley’s Jacob Mallet, Jr. won his fourth IMCA Sport Modified feature of the 2022 season, charging from tenth on the grid to pick up the triumph. Atascadero’s Cody Hample led the first eight laps while Mallet was on the move from the outside of row five.

Mallet was up to second by lap seven and then drove into the lead on lap nine. The caution flew a lap later when Austin McMillian from Atascadero spun in turn two and clipped Markus Frazier of Santa Maria. McMillian restarted at the rear.

Points leader Jonathan Hagio of Prunedale suffered race ending damage in a three-wide battle with Hample and Adriane Frost of Watsonville for third on lap 11. On the restart, Hample was shuffled back further before suffering a race ending crash of his own on lap 17 in turn three with Prunedale’s Max Baggett.

Mallet led the final three laps, topping Frazier, Frost, Watsonville’s Billy Robertson, and Chuck Golden of Pittsburg under the yellow checkered flag.

Brentwood’s Blake Bower won his 13th career Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction feature. The 20-lap contest saw Las Vegas’ Kyle Hawse jump out to lead the first lap. Hawse spun into turn one on the second lap, however, sparking a multi-car melee. Arizona’s Cameron LaRose, French Camp’s Sage Bordenave, Lodi’s Nate Wait, and Prunedale’s Caleb Debem. Hawse, Debem, and Bordenave were unable to continue.

On the restart, Cory Brown of Peoria, Ariz. assumed the lead but Bower quickly drove past him to lead lap two. Bower never relinquished the lead, topping Brown by an outstanding 6.821 second advantage. Logan Mitchell of Santa Cruz made a big maneuver into third on the restart but was called for jumping and scored fifth in the final rundown. Bower, Brown, Oakley’s Bryant Bell, Wait, and Mitchell were the top-five finishers. Brown and Bower split the eight-lap heat races.

Hobby Stocks points leader Joe Gallaher drove from the 12th starting position to win his eighth race of the year. Sam Kennedy of Watsonville led the first five laps before being passed by Watsonville’s Steve Remde on lap six. Gallaher challenged for the lead before a caution involving Adriane Frost and Shane Freeman in turn two on lap eight. Gallaher seized the lead on the restart.

Cautions flew on lap 14 for Brady Muller getting T-Boned by Norm Ayers, and again on lap 17 for a right front flat tire for Wally Kennedy. Gallaher held the lead over both restarts for the win, followed by Merced’s Chad Ragsdale, Remde, Sam Kennedy, and Frost.

The 12th Howard Kaeding Classic concludes Saturday night with the NARC 410 Sprint Cars battling for $6900 to win. The activities begin this afternoon with the luncheon which benefits the NARC Benevolent Fund. Hobby Stocks will also be in action tonight. Tickets are available at the gate at 4:30 p.m.

Randall and Rosenboom Record Wins During Bank Midwest Night Presented by Best Western of Fairmont at Jackson Motorplex

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (July 15, 2022) - Chase Randall and Jody Rosenboom both captured feature victories on Friday evening at Jackson Motorplex, which hosted Bank Midwest Night presented by Best Western of Fairmont.

The Midwest Sprint Touring Series and Midwest Power Series feature got off to a rough start with back-to-back red flags on the opening lap of the 25-lap main event. Once racing got rolling Jake Bubak led the first eight laps before a caution bunched the field together. Randall took advantage and used the bottom of turns three and four to take the lead on Lap 9.

As Randall built a sizeable lead, Kaleb Johnson advanced to third place on Lap 11 and into the runner-up position on Lap 13. The final caution of the race came out on the ensuing lap and after Randall executed a strong restart traffic appeared with seven laps remaining.

Johnson was able to close quickly, but Randall split two drivers to build his lead back to one second. A pair of drivers appeared in front of Randall on the final lap, allowing Johnson to make a last-ditch effort, but Randall was patient on the bottom groove in turns three and four to win by 0.575 seconds.

"We were really good out front," he said after earning his first career win at the track. "Those first few laps I had to figure out where I needed to be to be faster than the guy in front of me. I found the bottom in (turns) three and four worked pretty well. I kept trying it and trying it and worked it in. I finally got by Jake on that restart and checked out from there."

Johnson scored a second-place result.

"I feel like the last race we raced here I was in his position and made a few mistakes," he said. "Chase ran a good race."

Matt Juhl advanced from eighth to third.

"We had a good car all night," he said. "The way the track played out and traffic didn't go in my favor at all, I'm happy to be in third."

Justin Henderson rebounded from being involved in a pair of cautions to finish fourth and Christopher Thram ended fifth.

Johnson set quick time during qualifying before the heat races were won by Scotty Thiel, Randall, Brandon Halverson and Skylar Prochaska. Mark Toews picked up the B Main triumph.

Rosenboom led the final 16 laps to claim his second Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Cars main event victory at the track this year.

Matt Johnson held the point for the first four laps before Rosenboom powered into the top spot via the cushion in turns three and four. He then held off Trevor Serbus during a pair of late-race restarts to win by 0.993 seconds, garnering a trip into Sea Foam Victory Lane. Rosenboom has now won two of the three Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Cars features at Jackson Motorplex this season.

Serbus placed second with Johnson rounding out the podium. Dusty Ballenger finished fourth and Monty Ferriera held off Brandon Bosma, who tipped over on Lap 3 and had to restart at the back of the pack, for fifth place.

Rosenboom, Jeremy Schultz and Mike Stien were the heat race winners. Cody Ihlen captured the B Main.

The next event at Jackson Motorplex is July 26 for the final Bank Midwest IMCA Series race of the season. The racing program features IMCA modifieds, IMCA stock cars, IMCA sport mods, IMCA hobby stocks and IMCA sport compacts.

Paul Nienhiser Breaks Runner-up Jinx with Sprint Invaders at Bloomfield!

(Bill W) Bloomfield, IA, July 14, 2022 – Paul Nienhiser has had a habit of finishing second with the Sprint Invaders in 2022, and he broke that nuisance, with a win Thursday at the Bloomfield Speedway on the Davis County Fairgrounds in Bloomfield, Iowa. The win paid the Chapin, Illinois driver and Midland Performance #50 car owner Scott Bonar $2,000.

Nienhiser broke out to an early advantage in the 25-lap main event from his starting spot outside of row one, ahead of Riley Goodno, Great Williamson and Chase Randall. Williamson used a low move in turn two to take second from Goodno on lap two. Randall followed him into third with a slider on lap three.

Chase Richards spun to bring a caution three laps in. Randall shot by Williamson on lap five for second. Matt Allen spun a lap later to bring another caution. Williamson saw Allen’s car sitting in turn four, and in quick evasive action, got into the wall and upside down. He was unhurt.

Nienhiser led Randall, Goodno, who inherited third, Chris Martin and Cody Wehrle back to green. Randall made a bid at the leader, momentarily sliding in front in turn two. Nienhiser was able to turn back under him, however, retaining his lead.

Martin passed Goodno for third on lap ten, and the leaders were into traffic by lap 14. With about ten laps to go, rubber appeared on the low side of the speedway, and Martin was one of the first to find it. He flew by Randall for the second spot with eight to go.

Nienhiser found the groove just in time, blocking Martin’s advance. Disaster struck for Martin with two to go, when his right rear tire blew. Nienhiser led the rest of the way in the green, white, checker, finish, winning ahead of Randall, Goodno, Wehrle and hard-charger JJ Hickle. Randy Martin, Bret Tripplett, Dugan Thye, Tanner Gebhardt and Colton Fisher rounded out the top ten. Williamson, Nienhiser and Martin won heats, while Goodno took the Dash. Jamie Ball claimed the B main. Jack Anderson was involved in a scary crash in his heat race. He was uninjured.

“I think the way the whole night played out, getting the lead early is what I wanted to do,” said Nienhiser in Victory Lane. “Sometimes I’d say I’d rather be running second, but not tonight. Every time we unloaded tonight we were pretty close to phenomenal, and getting closer to that. In the past weeks, we’ve been salvaging seconds, so tonight felt really good. Hats off to whoever was taking care of the track tonight for not racing here in the last year…though it took a little rubber at the end. I thought it was a very nice, wide surface, which we haven’t seen every night this year. It surprised me a little when Chase cleared me on the restart. It did give me the chance to dive back underneath him and get in front of him going into three. At that point, I concentrated on the lapped cars, getting by them and getting down before anyone behind me could.”

“We had a couple good starts,” said Randall. “Paul got a good launch in the corner, but I was able to get a really good slider into one. He was able to protect the best he could, and I wasn’t able to get back by him. It was a good race, and I’m glad we came home with another good run. Chris Martin got around me on the bottom. I sat on top one lap too late. I was really good on top the first half of the race. Once I moved down there, we were able to give Paul a run for his money.”

“It was a good run tonight,” said Goodno. “We just got this motor put in this week, and it ran fine tonight. It was good to start up front. I just wish we could have held it better. The track was definitely tricky. It was treacherous up against the wall there. I lost a spot trying to get by a lapped car, but was able to get that back.”

The Sprint Invaders next action will be Sunday, July 17 at the East Moline Speedway in East Moline, Illinois. For more information on the Sprint Invaders, visit www.SprintInvaders.org or look us up on Facebook.

Larson holds off Schatz for 2nd Brad Doty Classic win at Attica

Tuesday, July 12, 2022

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Kyle Larson held off a late race charge from ninth starter Donny Schatz to claim his second Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic Presented by Racing Optics title Tuesday, July 12 at Attica Raceway Park. It was the Elk Grove, California native’s third World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series win of 2022, two of which have come at Attica.

Larson, the defending NASCAR champion, took the lead from his brother-in-law Brad Sweet on a lap 13restart and seemed to have the race in hand until lapped traffic came into play on lap 27. Schatz, the 10 time World of Outlaws champion, had worked his way to third by lap 21 and took second from Sweet on lap 29. In just six laps Schatz cut Larson’s lead in half. The huge crowd were on their feet as Schatz pulled under Larson on several occasions, but Larson made some daring moves in traffic to seal the $15,000 win, the fifth overall victory at Attica in his career.

“I found the top there a couple of laps before that caution. He (Sweet) was protecting on the restart and I felt that I could carry my momentum off of there. I felt really good but we got into traffic and it was hard to see. I could see Donny (Schatz) was running the bottom in one and two and I wasn’t really sure where he would be in three and four. I was kind of struggling when I caught Cap (Henry) and I missed the bottom a little bit and I knew Donny was right there,” said Larson beside his Finley Farms, Tarlton and Son, Folkens Bros. Trucking, FloRacing, JVI Group backed #57.

“Thankfully Donny is the cleanest racer in the world really and you can always trust him when you’re racing with him. I don’t know if there’s a lot of midget guys watching right now with a USAC race going on, but if they are take notes off of Donny Schatz. He’s a clean as it gets. A lot of people have lost respect so take notes from that guy,” added Larson.

For Schatz, his charge to the front gives him a lot of optimism heading to Eldora Speedway the rest of the week.

“The guys have definitely found a lot of things to get this thing a lot better. Everybody at Ford worked extra hard to get it where I can keep it on the end of my foot and control it a lot better. We had a decent run the other night and tonight it was good. We were racing for the win finally. That feels good. Kyle did a great job and I just had to go where he wasn’t and my car was decent everywhere. I feel like I didn’t fade throughout the race and I didn’t take off great but I didn’t fade at the end,” said Schatz of his Carquest, Ford Performance, Sage Fruit, Digital Ally, Curb, J&J Auto Racing backed #15.

“Everyone has their own characteristics in racing and I’ve been around a long time and I think everybody knows I’m not that way and I’m not about to be that way. It’s just the way I was brought up and raised and I’m proud of that fact. I’m going to stay that way and I guess I’ll end that way. If it bites me it bites me but it’s going to be my forte,” added Schatz.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, July 22 with the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group 410 sprints, the NAPA of Bryan AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales 305 sprints and the UMP Late Models in action.

Porter, Berry and Wagner Claim 9th Annual Race for Riley Checkers at Double-X Speedway

Double X Speedway

California, MO

June 10, 2022

By: Dean Reichel

The 9th Annual “Race for Riley”, Riley Hudson Memorial Race went off Sunday night at Double X Speedway as it has since the inception of the event, honoring the life of a young race fan that was very special to all of us. This night has truly grown into a celebration of the kids, the young race fans that are the future of our sport. On Sunday night, 102 bicycles were given away to young race fans in attendance. In addition to the bikes, giveaways for all ages were conducted throughout the night. Adding to the fun were free driver photos, a monster truck, a retired NASCAR machine and a 360 Winged Sprint, which were on display.

There was also some racing action taking place on the track and the drivers at Double X always have this event on their calendar as one to be at. The Pure Stocks were the highlighted class on Sunday night. The first heat saw Shannon Sullivan picking up the win over Russell Beach and Darin Porter. Heat two saw Jack Wood claiming the win over Nicholas Bennett and Preston McDowell. The special Dash for Cash in the division saw Jack Wood collecting the winners spoils. When the feature event rolled onto the track, most eyes were on the front row of Sullivan and Wood as they both had solid wins in preliminary events. At the drop of the green though, it was Darin Porter who charged from his third row inside starting position to take the lead as the field reached the backstretch. From this point on Porter was clearly in command of the race, surviving a trio of restarts due to cautions for debris, to claim the win. Jack Wood would finish the event in second place, Russell Beach capped off a good night in third, Preston McDowell in fourth and Jeff Turpin finished fifth.

The Super Stock division saw veteran Dale Berry pick up the win in this memorial feature event. Joe Miller gave chase the entire event to finish in second, points leader Jody Romig overcame a mechanical problem in warm ups to finish third after starting at the rear of the lineup. Adam Halley drove a steady race to come home fourth and Tyler Crocker finished fifth after battling mechanical gremlins throughout the event. The heat races were won by Miller and Berry. Tyler Crocker picked up a popular victory in the Dash for Cash over Berry and third place Eddie Keeran.

The Winged Sprint Cars completed the evenings card and saw Ben Brown and Tyler Elliott leading the field to the green for the feature event. Both of these young drivers had rough days leading up to the event. Brown suffered damage in another event and Elliott had engine issues from the previous Sunday, but with teamwork and in the case of Elliott’s #49, some help from a fellow team, both drivers were ready to tackle the ¼ mile speed plant. Elliott would use the outside front row starting position to take the lead on lap one and would run some very smooth laps on a track that offered multiple grooves for drivers to use. Brown would give chase early until looping the car in turn three and collecting Samuel Wagner. Both drivers retired to the pit area with mechanical damage. On the restart Elliott would continue to run some very smooth laps with some intense racing action happening behind him. Tyler Blank, Jack Wagner, Jake Griffin and Taylor Walton were trading places and challenging each other while keeping the leader in sight. Wagner found some traction on the low groove on turn four and began to challenge Elliott. On lap 21 he was able to complete the pass to take the point and would lead for the remaining laps. Elliott would finish a strong second. Blank would claim third, Griffin crossed the stripe in fourth and Taylor Walton would claim fifth. Tyler Blank would best Ben Brown in the Dash for Cash in the division.

Three weeks remain in the 2022 season at Double X with next Sunday being “Sonic Night at the Races”. On Sunday July 24 it will be the “Racing Back to School” Backpack and School supply giveaway and Sunday July 31 will be the Championship night at Double X.

Flick, Hoffman, Wyant, and Urey Take Command at Tri-City Raceway Park

(Franklin, PA July 10, 2022): A.J. Flick, of Apollo, PA romped to his second win of the season at Tri-City Raceway Park. It was his ninth of the season overall. Although Flick received double points for the win, he still has some ground to make up if he hopes to regain the points lead for the season championship in the Shawgo Real Estate, LLC 410 Sprints. He moved up to fourth, twenty-five counters behind Jack Sodeman, Jr.
Also snagging wins were Kevin Hoffman, in the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds; Tyler Wyant in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks; and Matt Urey in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks.
“We were four for eight here last year,” Flick said modestly. “We are looking to improve on that percentage.”
Flick explained that “we thought up some set-up ideas and we tried them out at Dog Hollow Speedway (on Friday). We made some progress, but we got beat by two better cars. We thought that we’d bring them to the half mile to see how they worked.”
Apparently, the changes were successful at Tri-City Raceway Park. “We started fifth and it was relatively easy for me to get to the front.” Flick explained that his competitors were trying to carry too much speed into the corners and they would slide up, “and that opened things up for me.”
Flick commented that the track “was extremely racy.” He added, “we just need to get some more people to support the facility.”
Jeremy Weaver took the early lead aboard Bob McMillin’s car, re-numbered as Weaver’s 35W. Weaver started in the second position, but Flick quickly moved into second on the opening lap, as the pole sitter, Brandon Matus fell to third. Flick grabbed the lead on lap three and was never headed.
Weaver continued in second, despite falling back from the leader. Matus held third until a left rear tire began to deflate in the middle stage of the race. That enabled sixth place starter Rickie Peterson to take over third. Bob Felmlee also displaced Matus, as did Logan McCandless.
Sixth went to Jack Sodeman, Jr., seventh to Rod Jones, and eighth to Brent Matus. Brandon Matus was scored in ninth based on laps completed, and Chase Metheney was tenth on the same basis.
There were two heats for the Shawgo Real Estate, LLC 410 Sprint Cars. The victories went to Logan McCandless and Brandon Matus. Jack Sodeman, Jr. had a fuel line come off in his heat race. With twelve cars on hand, there was no B Main.
Kevin Hoffman, of Franklin, went wire to wire in the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds. He started on the pole and won the wrestling match with Nick Joy in turn one to take the lead. Hoffman led all twenty laps, which went without a caution.
“It was pretty choppy and I made a lot of mistakes, but I guess everybody did, too.”
Joy ran second for the first four laps before handing over teh spot to Kole Holden, who was subbing for Jimmy this night. Holden ran a steady race, but could not close in on Hoffman as the race progressed.
Points leader Jeremiah Shingledecker came on in the final five laps to take third away from Joy. Lonny Riggs ran fifth the entire distance. Tom Holden worked his way past Travis Shingledecker early in the second half of the twenty lapper to earn the sixth spot. After Travis Shingledecker was Kevin Green.
The Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds presented one heat for the eight cars that signed in. The winner was Kevin Hoffman. There was no B Main.
Tyler Wyant took the early lead and survived a couple of cautions. Once things got rolling, though, Wyant was unstoppable. It was the second win for Wyant’s car, the first coming with Pro Stock meister Chris Schneider at the controls.
Wyant had a commanding lead over Pat Fielding and Josh Seippel, who waged a spitted battle for the second spot.
Fielding came out on top, with Seippel third, Matt Bernard fourth, and Charlie McMillen fifth. Aden Boozel, Russ Coyne, and Josh Blum were sixth, seventh, and eighth, respectively.
Nine cars signed in for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks. There was one heat, which was won by Tyler Wyant. There was no B Main.
Matt Urey did the unthinkable in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stock feature: he defeated Levi Maskal. Maskal the Rascal made it to second, despite fixing the steering rack after his heat race. Maskal was closing in on the nearly identical Honda Civic, but a mechanical problem late in the race allowed Evan Sobieski to take the second position.
Finishing fourth was D.J. Macrae, and fifth went to Thomas Warren. Positions six through ten were Chad Greeley, Tyler Ellenberger, Paul Marsh, Dalton Speer, and Dillon Thorne.
While Bodey McClintock did not have much to celebrate in terms of success on the racetrack, he was a happy man nonetheless, as he and his fiance, Jessica Gomola, announced their engagement. Congrats to the couple.
The 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks had thirteen cars sign in. The pair of heat races went to Todd Hanlon and Matt Urey. There was no B Main.
The next three Sundays, July 17, 24, and 31, will be Sunday Thunder events, with racing for the four classes: the Shawgo Real Estate, LLC 410 Sprint Cars, the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, and the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. The racing will begin at 6 p.m., as usual.

Kuriger captures 400th 410 sprint car feature at Mercer since 1994. Kornbau, Schaffer, Gabany all repeat, Ealy wins first of 2022.

By Jim Balentine (Mercer,Pa)

On a beautiful mid summer evening Michaels mercer raceway completed its 5th show of the 71ST season with Dan Kuriger picking up his 1st mercer 410 sprint win work $3000 since 2017 and it was also the historic 400th 410 sprint car feature at the track since it reopened in 1994. Jeremy Kornbau won his 3rd Racesaver 305 sprint feature, Eric Gabany returned to capture his 2nd big block modified win of 2022, Brian Schaffer won his 3rd FASTRAK modified feature of the season and Carl Ealy returned to victory lane in the mini stocks .

The 400th 410 sprint car main since reopening in 1994 had Chase Metheney starting on the pole with Dan Kuriger. Metheney would take the lead and would open up a 1.5 second advantage over the field looking promising to win his 1st 410 main.. however on unlucky lap 13 Ryan Fredericks would come to a halt in turn 4 and Metheney with nowhere to go clipped the vehicle resulting in him going to the pits ending his great run. Kuriger would inherit the lead and go in to win by 1.7 seconds and his 1st at the speedway since 2017. Ohio invader Ricky Peterson in the Kornbau #27 moved his way through the field and passed 2 time winner Adam Kekich on the last lap for 2nd. Jack Sodeman jr was 4th and Bob Felmlee 5th. Kuriger would say “I felt bad for him(Metheney)..he was pretty fast but this happened to me at sharon this year so I know how it goes. Track was real nice tonight we broke our truck last night and my dad worked on the truck and I worked on the car and we slept like 2 hours but I’m glad we came.”

In the big block modifieds reigning track champion Eric Gabany returned to Mercer after the sudden loss of car owner Rick Ryder and went on to win his 2nd Modified feature of the year and his 3rd overall. Previous Mike Kinney blew a tire on lap 12 negating gabany’s lead by 2.6 seconds. On the restart Gabany would take off and dominate winning by 3.078 over Brad Rapp. “This is great it’s just special to be able to do this and for him (car owner Rick Ryder) and his car it’s awesome. We will be back here at mercer every week.” NY invader Tony Pangrazio finished 3rd, Rodney Beltz with a great run finishing 4th and John Venuto 5th.

Jeremy Kornbau added to his win total and his point lead leading flag to flag in The 20 lap Racesaver 305 sprint feature. It wasn’t easy as veteran and 13 time winner Jimmy Morris hounded Kornbau lap after lap going high and low pulling within a half car length several times. After several cautions Kornbau would hold his own and pick up his 3rd feature of 2022 by a slim .871 over Morris. “I could hear him the whole race and he’s good at sneaking under and I tried to protect the bottom so he couldn’t gain an inch. When it’s slick and smooth Jimmy is always there. Gary Edwards has this car rolling and it makes it fun now!! We were up until 6 am working on the car after Lernerville after last night so it makes it nice.” Morris would settle for 2nd, Greg Dobrosky 3rd, Vivian Jones 4th and Jake Gomola 5th.

It’s turning into the Schaffer FASTRAK modifieds as all 5 features have been won by 2 drivers named Schaffer. 2 time track champ Brian Schaffer won his 3rd of the season handily from the pole position and was never threatened the entire race winning by 2.406. A great battle for 2nd resulted in Gage Priester holding off Michael Kristyak and Billy Adams. 2 time winner Jeff Schaffer Jr. was 5th.

9 time winner last season Carl Ealy finally visited victory lane in 2022 in the mini stocks after a spirited battle with cousin and defending champion Andy Thompson. Tim Callahan came from the 12th position to finish 3rd while Corey Bice was 4th and newcomer Nick Robie was 5th.

Next week will be a special 410 sprint car $6000 to win special which will follow the all star sprint format. Also on the card will be the FASTRAK/crate 602 sportsman racing for $1000 to win, along with the mini stocks and the jr sprints.

Michael Faccinto dominates for first career Winged Sprint Car win on Saturday at Placerville

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…Michael Faccinto has proven to be one of the more versatile drivers in the Golden State and on Saturday night he checked another box off his resume, by putting together a dominating run for his initial Winged Sprint Car victory.

Fellow winners on Red Hawk Casino Night at Placerville Speedway were Nick Baldwin with the Red Hawk Pure Stocks, Thomas Jensen with the Mountain Democrat Mini Trucks and Josef Ferolito with the BCRA Lightning Sprints.

Faccinto had captured a USAC Western States Midget triumph on the red clay in early May, prior to jumping aboard the Friends & Family Racing X1 Sprint Car later that month. The 25-lap Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged Sprint Car feature had a particularly tough time getting underway, taking four attempts to get one lap scored. Once that happened however, things went green to checkered in no time.

Once out front Faccinto easily pulled away from the rest of the pack and worked traffic to perfection. The 32-year-old was never seriously threatened and controlled the main event with ease on way to his first career Winged Sprint Car victory. It was a terrific rebound for Faccinto and the Bushey Financial/ Geico sponsored X1 team, who failed to qualify for the feature just two races back.

The final laps saw an excellent race between Michael Pombo, Andy Forsberg and Willie Croft. The trio fought it out tooth and nail, with Pombo claiming the runner up spot, which marked a best ever Placerville result for the Easton driver. Pombo has been impressive in limited starts at the track, also earning a podium this past Monday.

Forsberg, Croft and Landon Brooks completed the top-five. The remainder of the top-10 was filled out by Colby Johnson, Chase Johnson, Jodie Robinson, 17th starter Kalib Henry and Justin Henry. Faccinto also began the evening by bringing home the ADCO Driveline and Custom Exhaust Fast Time Award, touring the quarter-mile in 10.909 seconds. A total of 34 Thompson’s Winged Sprint Cars competed on Saturday.

Winged Sprint Car finish: 1. X1-Michael Faccinto[1]; 2. 98M-Michael Pombo[3]; 3. 92-Andy Forsberg[4]; 4. 5H-Willie Croft[2]; 5. 5V-Landon Brooks[8]; 6. 38-Colby Johnson[6]; 7. 28-Chase Johnson[12]; 8. 4-Jodie Robinson[7]; 9. 17-Kalib Henry[17]; 10. 24-Justin Henry[14]; 11. 21-Shane Hopkins[15]; 12. 94-Greg Decaires V[18]; 13. 21M-Michael Ing[19]; 14. 25-Justin Johnson[16]; 15. 87-Ashlyn Rodriguez[13]; 16. 12J-John Clark[9]; 17. 3-Kaleb Montgomery[5]; 18. 21X-Gauge Garcia[10]; 19. 18P-Jack Phillips[20]; 20. 7C-Tony Gomes[11]

The Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks once again provided an entertaining 20-lap main event. Oakley’s Nick Baldwin was involved in a collision at Placerville Speedway on Monday and suffered a torn-up race car, but he found redemption on Saturday. The defending track champion and current point leader set the pace up front, but it never came easy over the course on the contest.

Diamond Springs’ Kevin Jinkerson sat on the rear bumper of the No. 17 machine for much of the main event and kept Baldwin honest up front. The top-two finishers in the Pure Stock standings last season were glued together, but at the Darin Stahl checkered flag it was Baldwin coming out on top over Jinkerson, Ryan Peter, Russ Murphy and Jason Poppert. Rounding out the top-10 were Mike Lightfoot, Jason Armstrong, Jonny Walsh, Michael Murphy and Ryan Murphy.

The triumph marked Baldwin’s 17th career Placerville Speedway victory.

Pure Stock finish: 1. 17-Nick Baldwin[2]; 2. 30-Kevin Jinkerson[4]; 3. 83-Ryan Peter[5]; 4. 74-Russell Murphy[3]; 5. 87-Jason Poppert[1]; 6. 23-Mike Lightfoot[12]; 7. 77T-Jason Armstrong[8]; 8. 4-Jonny Walsh[7]; 9. 47-Michael Murphy[9]; 10. 316-Ryan Murphy[13]; 11. 1-Chris D'angelo[15]; 12. 62B-Beau Chandler[14]; 13. 93-Mel Byers[11]; 14. 08-Oroville Owens[6]; 15. 64-Thomas Jensen[10]

The 20-lap Mountain Democrat Mini Truck finale started out with rookie driver Brycen Bragg and Paizlee Miller racing up front. Part time security guard Thomas Jensen would soon find himself out front however, after Austin Struthers found issues, as the feature was back and forth with several movers and shakers.

Miller did not make things easy on Jensen though, as the pair stayed locked onto each other right down to the finish. Jensen ended up claiming the checkered flag for his third career Mini Truck victory in Old Hangtown. Paizlee Miller, Bragg, Page Miller and Wyatt Lakin rounded out the top-five.

Mini Truck finish: 1. 08JR-Thomas Jensen[7]; 2. 61-Paizlee Miller[2]; 3. 75-Brycen Bragg[1]; 4. 07-Page Miller[9]; 5. 04-Wyatt Lakin[5]; 6. 28-Howard Miller[6]; 7. 65X-Brian Tremblay[10]; 8. 70-Austin Struthers[4]; 9. 12-Kaele Ahart[11]; 10. 4-Ray Bunn[3]; 11. 16-Mike Miller[8]

Modesto’s Josef Ferolito earned his first Placerville Speedway BCRA Lightning Sprint main event victory one year ago. That came without the wing, however. This time around Ferolito added a triumph with the wing atop the car by capturing the 20-lap feature on Saturday. Reigning series champ Dakota Albright came home in second, with Brandon Leedy, Greg Denett and Matt Land completing the top-five.

BCRA Lightning Sprint finish: 1. 18-Josef Ferolito[2]; 2. 35JR-Dakota Albright[5]; 3. 3F-Brandon Leedy[4]; 4. 47-Greg Dennett[6]; 5. 91-Matt Land[3]; 6. 17F-Harlee Aguilera[8]; 7. 21C-Cody Meyer[7]; 8. 21J-Jayden Meyer[1]; 9. 11S-Danielle Clauson Sevo[9]; 10. 28K-Kaden Ramos[10]

The Placerville Speedway returns to action this coming Saturday July 16th with the Thompson’s Winged 360 Sprint Cars, Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks, Mtn. Democrat Mini Trucks and the Joe Hunt Magnetos Wingless Sprints.

 

O’Reilly Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway

ORRVILLE - Parity in the Pine Tree Towing and Recovery Sprint Car and Malcuit Tavern Super Late Model divisions has been unmatched this season at the O’Reilly Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway.

Through the mid-summer point of the season, there had been no repeat winners in “Orrville’s Historic Oval” headlining classes until Saturday night when Henry Malcuit and Ryan Markham joined Colton Shaw in the Elite Ammunition Modifieds, Kyle Moore in the McKenzie Concrete Super Stocks, and Doug Hensel in the JoyRide Mini Stocks, already frequent visitors to WCS victory lane.

Malcuit started his evening by setting quick time and winning the opening heat before lining up fifth in the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association $3,000-to-win main event. Malcuit settled in at the start of the 25-lap feature by following Fremont’s Zeth Sabo, Trey Jacobs, Tyler Street, Andrew Palker, and Jordan Ryan. Sabo’s blistering pace was slowed by a lap seven caution, however, as Malcuit moved into second following Jacobs and Street’s early exit from the event.

Sabo set sail once the green replaced the yellow until a red flag for an upside-down Brayton Phillips on lap 18 halted action. When the field went back under power, Danny Mumaw, who was sixth after starting ninth, and Ryan, who was battling Palker for third, each went pit side as well. Jake Hesson, making a rare appearance in the legendary Ken Bodkins 00, Sprint Car Hall of Famer Danny Smith, and 19th-starting Cody Bova joined the top-six.

Malcuit eventually ran down Sabo, who was suffering from a left rear tire losing air, with two laps to go with a move on the bottom side of turns 1 and 2 to secure his second win in three weeks at WCS. Sabo hung on for second with Palker third, Bova fourth, Hesson fifth, and Smith in sixth.

“I could see (Zeth’s) tire going down under the yellow, and it kind of sucks to win a race like that,” said Malcuit. “But sometimes it takes a little luck in winning races, too, and we’ve been on the bad end of the luck a few times as well.

“My dad (Mark Malcuit) had the car really nice tonight,” Malcuit added, who will now set his sights on action this week at the famed Eldora Speedway. “We need to get some laps and more experience, so we’ll go down there and see what we can do.”

Markham made it a two-for-two weekend after winning the feature on Friday night at Attica Raceway Park by picking up his second win of the 2022 season at WCS over a stout, season-high 26-car field.

JR Gentry, from outside row two, set the early pace in the 25-lap main with Markham, Todd Brennan, Toledo-based driver Rob Anderzack, and last week’s winner Dave Hornikel. Markham cut Gentry’s lead to two car lengths by lap 12, before Gentry stretched his advantage to a straightaway by the 17th circuit before disaster struck the red 14.

Gentry jumped the berm exiting turn 2, getting airborne in the process before crashing into the retaining barriers on the backstretch. Gentry escaped uninjured from his battered machine but was done for the night. Markham inherited the lead and then fended off a valiant charge from Brennan in claiming the victory. Shane McLoughlin finished third followed by Corey Conley, Anderzack, Cody Scott, Northwest Ohio invader Terry Rushlow, Caiden Black, Mitch Caskey, who rallied from deep in the field twice, and Larry Bellman.

Markham will try to make it 3-for-3 Sunday evening at Brush Creek Speedway, before setting his sights on next Sunday’s DirtCar Summer Nationals at WCS. “We will head south (Sunday), then be back here next week for the (DirtCar), so we’ll come over and see what we’ve got. This motor has a lot of laps on it, so we’ll have to see how it goes, but yeah, we will be here.”

Shaw appears primed for next week’s Modified portion of the DirtCar Nationals at WCS, too, as he motored into the lead on lap nine in his familiar orange 01 machine and never looked back.

Shaw grabbed the lead from early leader and newcomer Aaron Phillis, who hung for second, with Casey Butler a strong third, Bill Griffith fourth, and newcomers Brock Moskey and Mark Baier fifth and sixth respectively.

“We can’t seem to re-draw to save our lives,” said the sixth-starting Shaw. “But we were able to move around some and get the win. We’ll also be here next week and see what we got.”

The Mini Stocks were up next, and the season-high 31-car field failed to disappoint the WCS faithful once again.

Hensel, who encountered last-lap mechanical failures while leading each of the last two weeks, took the lead on lap two of the 12-lap main, but once again it was anything but clear sailing for the No. 18 machine. Kyle Petit was the first to challenge Hensel, with last week’s winner Justin Cranmore also in hot pursuit and a hard-charging Chaz Dawson and 25th-starting Anthony Collins in tow.

With victory within sight, Hensel survived a pair of lap 11 yellows, the second coming with Hensel exiting turn 4. Hensel first held off Petit, then a bonsai move from the high-flying Collins in turns 3 and 4 that briefly saw the No. 71 move ahead of Hensel. Collins, though, came up just inches short at the stripe followed by Petit, Dawson, and Ryan Carder.

“We should be standing here with our tenth win of the season, but hey, that’s racing and sometimes that’s the way it goes,” said Hensel. “I admit l was a little nervous on those restarts, but it worked out. We were put to the test tonight.”

Moore continued his domination of the Super Stocks by taking the point on lap four and cruising to his 16th overall victory of the season.

Although Moore was long gone, the action behind the 21D was just heating up. Took Wiles grabbed second after a duel with Braden Tucke. Tyler Wiles entered the fray on lap 12 by taking third, then to the runner-up spot when Took shredded a tire late in the 15-lap feature. Tyler Wiles held on for second ahead of Tucke, Brandon Craver, and early leader Don Rutt.

Wayne County Speedway will sit idle next Saturday before the invasion of the DirtCar Summer Nationals on Sunday evening. The DirtCar Super Late Models and Modifieds will be joined by the WCS Super Stocks. Watch for more information this week on Facebook and Twitter at WCSOhio.

Schmidt, Scheffler, Kulow, Welter notch initial 2022 PDTR A-main triumphs

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 9, 2022 – As the 2022 campaign hit the half-way mark, four drivers paid their first visits of the season to Plymouth Dirt Track Racing victory lane in A-main competition on Fan Appreciation Night at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 9.

In the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasant View Realty PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Car A-main, 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Plymouth held off former track champions Travis Arenz of Sheboygan and Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh to claim his first A-main victory of the 2022 season.

Taylor Scheffler of Waukesha made the most of a rare appearance at The Plymouth Dirt Track by capturing the 25-lap Sheboygan’s Country B93.7 Late Model A main.

2019 PDTR Grand National champ Tyler Kulow of Plymouth earned his first 2022 triumph in the 25-lap Oostburg Automotive Grand National A-main.

Andy Welter of Hartford rolled to his first career PDTR B Mod A-main victory in the 25-lap Next Stop Insurance B Mod main event.

Polesitter Justin Erickson of Plymouth led the opening lap of the 25-lap 360 Sprint Car A main before outside front row starter Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum used the outside groove to sweep into the lead in turn two on lap two.

Seconds later, the lone caution flag of the event appeared for a five-car incident in turn one involving Tyler Brabant of Waupun, Doug Wondra of Oakfield, Tommy Colburn of New Berlin, Tony Wondra of Campbellsport and Mike Yurmanovich of Cascade. The incident knocked Colburn and Yurmanovich out of the remainder of the race, while Doug Wondra, Tony Wondra and Brabant were able to continue.

On the restart, Ben Schmidt, who started fourth, worked the high line to move past Erickson into second and quickly close in on Wenninger for the lead. Three laps later, Schmidt moved within striking distance, while 2021 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion and current points leader Travis Arenz, who started sixth, moved into third.

On lap 9, Schmidt maneuvered his way past Wenninger in turn two to take the lead, while Arenz followed suit by moving around Wenninger into second on the following lap.

Over the final 16 laps, the leaders had their hands full as they sliced their way through heavy lapped traffic. As the laps wound down, Arenz worked primarily the low line to reel in the high-riding Schmidt, while two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Brandon McMullen, who started seventh, moved into third to join in a spirited three-car duel at the front of the field.

With Arenz and McMullen hot on his heels, Schmidt stayed smooth and consistent to successfully negotiate a dense gaggle of slower traffic in the closing laps en route to his 14th career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory and 31st career Midwest Sprint Car Association main event triumph.

Arenz had to settle for second, McMullen finished third, Wenninger placed fourth and Erickson wound up fifth.

Polesitter Joe Bongiorno of Milwaukee took the lead at the drop of the green flag of the 25-lap Late Model main event.

On lap 2, outside front row starter Turk Letizia of Milwaukee used the low line to pressure the cushion-running Bongiorno for the top spot. As Bongiorno and Letizia continued to wage an early duel at the front of the pack, Taylor Scheffler, who started fourth, dove low to move past Letizia into second on lap 5.

Scheffler then bolted past Bongiorno to assume the lead in turn one on lap six. The first of two caution flags appeared later on lap 6 for the slowing car of Charlie Schmidt Oostburg along the backstretch.

On the restart, Scheffler worked the preferred outside groove to open up a full straightaway cushion over Bongiorno. The second and final caution flag was displayed on lap 16 when Sawyer Specht of Sheboygan Falls spun in turn two.

Late Model rookie Bill Edler of Howards Grove charged up to briefly take second in the running order on the restart before four-time defending PDTR Late Model champion and current point leader Justin Schmidt of Cleveland, who started 10th, used a low move to take second from Edler on lap 17,

Schmidt cut into Scheffler’s lead over the final eight circuits, but he was not able to mount a serious challenge as Scheffler went on to notch his sixth career PDTR Late Model A-main victory in his second appearance of the 2022 season at The Plymouth Dirt Track.

Outside front row starter Steven Weber of Plymouth grabbed the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap Grand National A main. On lap 3, fourth starter Tyler Kulow moved into second with current PDTR Grand National point leader Luke Scholten of Oostburg moving into third from his sixth starting position.

The first of three caution flags was displayed on lap 5 for debris in turn four. On lap restart, Scholten used the high line to move around Kulow and pressure Weber for the top spot. Weber and Scholten battled side by side over the next several circuits as 2010 PDTR Grand National champion Brian Gilles of Plymouth, who started fifth, moved the Bender Racing No. 89 car into third on lap 9.

The second caution flag appeared on lap 10 when Scott Kafka of Kiel spun along the backstretch. On the restart, Kulow worked his way past Scholten into second as Weber built up a solid half-straightaway lead at the front of the field.

With three laps remaining, Weber’s machine began to slow, which allowed Kulow close the gap significantly. After slight contact with Kulow and the third-place car of Gilles on lap 23, the third and final caution flag of the race flew when Weber stopped along the backstretch and Gilles slowed with a flat right front tire.

With Weber out of the race, Kulow inherited the lead and he maintained the top spot over the final two circuits on the way to his 11th career PDTR Grand National A-main victory.

Scholten finished second, 2008 PDTR Grand National champion Matt Yancey of Sheboygan, who started third, finished third, Donny Kulow of Elkhart Lake, who started seventh, placed fourth and Gilles recovered to finish fifth.

After the initial start was aborted for a fourth car incident involving Shane Long of Sheboygan Falls, Jonathan Hitsman of Newton, Rory Welch of Grafton and Spencer Long of Sheboygan Falls, James Rautmann of Howards Grove seized the top spot from the pole position on the opening lap of the 25-lap B Mod A main.

On lap 5, third starter Travis Schmidt of Waldo worked the low line to move into second in turn one. By lap 10, Schmidt pulled up to challenge Rautmann for the top spot as the leaders held tight to the low groove.

The second caution flag was presented on lap 15 when Steve Lorier of Sheboygan spun in turn two. On the restart, Andy Welter made his presence felt as he moved up from his fifth starting spot to pressure Schmidt’s slowing car for second on lap 17.

The third and final caution flag appeared on lap 16 for a four car incident in turn three involving Jonathan Hitsman, Spencer Long, Patrick Hansen of Sheboygan Falls and Matthew Roehl of Fond du Lac.

Welter took second from Schmidt following the final restart on lap 17 and quickly set his sights on Rautmann. On lap 20, Welter powered his way past Rautmann into the lead in turn two.

Welter then pulled away to earn his first career PDTR B Mod A-main victory and assume the point lead in the B Mod division at The Plymouth Dirt Track.

Sixth starter Jonathon Baumann of Sheboygan rode the high line to a second-place finish, Rautmann placed third, third starter Brandon Knepprath of Boltonville took fourth and Steve Lorier bounced back after restarting at the rear of the field on lap 15 to round out the top five.

Butch Hafemann of Campbellsport captured the special 12-lap Vintage Modified A main.

Bill Taylor of Boltonville won the 12-lap 360 Sprint Car B main.

The seventh full PDTR program of the 2022 campaign, which was sponsored by Butch and Blondie Hafemann, drew a total field of 68 cars, including 26 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars, 12 Late Models, 8 Grand Nationals, 14 B Mods and 8 Vintage Modifieds.

Wilmot Raceway

(Wilmot, Wis., Saturday, July 9, 2022)--Carson Macedo of Lemoore, CA capped off a memorable night before an overflow standing room only crowd by taking top honors in the Larry Hillerud Memorial Badger 40 for the national traveling NOS Energy World of Outlaws Sprint Cars on Saturday, July 9 at Wilmot Raceway.
"Larry was an incredible man. He had these race tracks on point every time we rolled into town and loved the sport so much.," said Macedo, who was joined by Larry Hillerud's widow, Sharon, and many of his family in victory lane. Larry Hillerud passed away earlier this spring with the night's program dedicated in honor of his legacy. The former Interstate Racing Association sprint car and Badger midget driver, among some other types of racing, Larry turned race promoter and was instrumental as part of the SLS Promotion team, in bringing the World of Outlaws sprint cars to a track which he often considered home for him as a driver.
The 24-car field had a four-car tangle bring out the red flag on the opening start attempt. Four cars involved including Spencer Bayston of Lebanon, IN, Scott Biertzer of West Bend, Robbie Price of Cobble Hill, British Columbia, Canada and Blake Nimee of Oswego, IL were all damaged beyond repair. None of the drivers were injured.
Donny Schatz of Fargo, ND, 10-time WO champion, took top spot on the restart from his front-row starting spot alongside Dash Winner Scotty Thiel of Sheboygan.
A second caution slowed the race a lap latter. On the restart, Macedo powered his Johnson Racing 41 into the lead and checked out on the field, slicing through lapped traffic as the remainder of the main event went caution free.
At the finish it was Macedo scoring his first Wilmot WO feature victory. James McFadden of Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia, finished second. Schatz took the final podium spot in third.
Brad Sweet of Grass Valley, CA was fourth. David Gravel of Watertown, CT fifth.
Sheldon Haudenschild of Wooster, OH was sixth. Thiel seventh. Kasey Kane of Enumclaw, WA eighth. Brock Zearfross of Joenstown, PA ninth. Jacob Allen of Hanover, PA completed the top 10.
Noah Gass of Mounds, OK won the 12-lap last chance race to make the show, starting 21st and improving nine positions to finish 12th as the feature's hard charger.
Zach Raidart of Gurnee, IL powered to the high side of turn four on the white flag lap to take the lead in the 20-lap AutoMeter/Wisconsin WingLESS Sprint feature, going on to become the fifth different main event winner at Wilmot this season in six starts for the division. Jimmy Sivia of Winthrop Harbor, IL, who held top spot from his front row starting berth in the 24-car field, ended up second. Tim Cox of Park City, IL was third. Clayton Rossmann of Wadsworth, IL took fourth. Burlington's Mike Sullivan completed the top five.
"It was a great win for our team on such a big night," said Raidart, who scored his first Wilmot win in two years. "The car hooked up at the right spot at the right time."
The race was red flagged six laps in when Ryan Marshall of Kansasville flipped high into the air in turn three. Marshall was not injured but out of action for the night. Sivia continued to lead on the restart with Raidart working his way into contention as the final 14 laps stayed green.
Pleasant Prairie's Mike Neau took the lead three laps from the finish on a restart in the 15-lap Pfeiffer Trailer Sales IRA Lightning Sprint feature, The restart followed a red flag when Delavan's Chris Quillman, who was not injured, got upside down in turn two. Neau overtook Union Grove's Andrew Kiedrowski for the point. Ironically, Kiedrowski had taken the lead from Slinger's Jeff Schmidt after a red flag for a multi-car tangle on the front straightaway at the halfway point which included the cars of Bristol's Adam Schroeder and Tim Brannam of Holiday Hills, IL both getting upside down. Neither driver was injured.
Neau was followed by Kiedrowski in second. C.J. Malueg of Johnsburg, IL third. Schmidt fourth. Hales Corner's Kevin Frederiksen fifth.
"That was a fun race," said Neau, part of the Dream Chaser Racing Team which his father, Larry Neau, owns. "I dedicate this win to my sons and wife who couldn't be here. This is our second win of the season for the series, but first here at Wilmot since we finally got a race in with all of the bad weather we've had this spring. I can't wait to get back next week."
Next up for Wilmot Raceway is Family Night on Saturday, July 16 featuring the WingLESS Sprints, Lightning Sprints, Modifieds and Street Stocks. Grandstands open at 5 p.m. with on track activity at 5:45 p.m. and racing slated for 6:30 p.m. Grandstand admission is $15.00 for everyone ages 12 and over, while all children ages 11 and under will be admitted free.

Kruchka, Smith, Bailey, & Lafantaisie Win on Strickland’s Bike Night at Ohsweken

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (July 8, 2022) – Strickland’s brought another round of Friday Night Excitement to Ohsweken Speedway on July 8; Mikey Kruchka, Lucas Smith, Dave Bailey, and Tyler Lafantaisie won A-Mains while bikes and lacrosse gear were given away to young fans.

Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars Mikey Kruchka and Mack DeMan led the 23 drivers to the green flag to start the 20 lap 360 Sprint Car A-Main. Kruchka lost first place to DeMan until he was able to retake the lead once more on lap seven. The Turner brothers were the ones to watch as they battled their way through the top ten; Cory had started 23rd after problems in his heat race and went on to finish sixth. A caution for debris on the track caused the field to reset for an exciting finish with six laps to go. Kruchka had a textbook restart, driving himself to his first victory of the season. Ryan Turner finished second after gaining eight positions from his start. Mack DeMan finished third, D.J. Christie fourth, and Liam Martin fifth. Ryan Turner remains the division points leader, ahead by 20 points over Cory Turner.

Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars Allan Downey and A.J. Lewis made up the front row to start the 20 lap Crate Sprint Car A-Main. Lucas Smith bided his time for six laps before making his move to gain the lead. Eric Gledhill closed the gap, however traffic proved too difficult to navigate through, nullifying his efforts for a second win on the season. Smith crossed the finish line first, giving him his first victory of the year and fourth top five. Gledhill had an amazing drive finishing second after nursing a flat left front tire to the finish line. Third place was a tie on a dead heat between A.J. Lewis and Brett Stratford down to the thousandth of a second, however Lewis was later disqualified for a technical infraction. Rounding out the top five were Jesse Costa and Downey. Smith now leads Gledhill by eight points in the championship standings.

Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks Melissa Miller and Tim Phalen led the grid in getting the 20 lap Thunder Stock A-Main underway. Within two laps Ron Loggie was already in first place after starting fifth. Championship contenders Ryan Beagle and Dave Bailey battled their way to the front after starting deep into the field due to the handicap system. Loggie had the victory in his sights until a late caution put it all in jeopardy. Bailey capitalized on the final restart and drove to his fourth victory of the year. Loggie settled for second, Mike Thorne third, Ryan Beagle fourth, and Christopher Hale fifth. Bailey now leads over Hale by 32 points in the division points standings.

HRW Automotive Mini Stocks The front row of the grid featured Mike Evers and Mike Giberson to begin the 15 lap Mini Stock A-Main. Wade Thorne took an early lead until a red flag came out due to a collision between Evers and Tim Nuell which left both drivers unharmed but frustrated. Tyler Lafantaisie and Fabio Oliveri battled each other for the last nine laps and Lafantaisie was able to earn his fourth victory of the season and fifth straight top five. Oliveri finished second and picked up precious points, while Dusty DeBoer rounded out the podium. The top five finished with Matt Nuell and Kyle Rothwell respectively. Lafantaisie left the night with a comfortable 64 point lead over Jason Tolton.

JOE MARTIN REDEEMS HIMSELF IN "BILL FORNEY MEMORIAL" FOR $3199 RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR VICTORY AT SHARON; JOEL WATSON TOPS $1000 UMP MODS; RUSH SPRINTS TO CHAD RUHLMAN AGAIN; 1ST WINS FOR CHRIS SCHNEIDER & GARRETT KRUMMERT IN STOCKS & RUSH MODS
July 9, 2022

By Mike Leone


(Hartford, OH)...After a weekend off, Sharon Speedway was blessed with a beautiful Saturday evening for the second annual "Bill Forney Memorial". Celebrating in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane were Joe Martin-Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Late Model Flynn's Tire Touring Series, Joel Watson-Hovis Auto & Truck Supply UMP Modifieds, Chad Ruhlman-Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars, Chris Schneider-Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, and Garrett Krummert-HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. The pits were full with a season high 128 cars. The night was being presented by the Forney Family, A&MP Electric, and Cortland Mower Sales.

Last year, Joe Martin lost a heartbreaker on the final lap to Super Late Model hall of famer Chub Frank in the inaugural "Bill Forney Memorial" for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Late Models. On Saturday night, Martin redeemed himself in the second annual event by finally working his way past Super Late Model standout Michael Norris with three laps to go after a race-long, spirited battle throughout the 30-lap non-stop feature that was timed in 9:58.529. Martin's second Flynn's Tire Touring Series victory of the year and fourth of his career was worth $3,199.

"We're here for a celebration every time we come to Sharon Speedway," expressed the 37-year-old Punxsutawney, Pa. racer. "Man I love this place. I love the track, the surface and shape of it, the professionalism, the staff, the safety crew- it's a top notch facility. I love you fans up there as well. Michael (Norris) is a hell of a race car driver. He's younger than me, but I kind of idolize him. I had a better car the whole night, but when it comes to the cushion there isn't a better driver in the whole country and I'll stick to that. He made it really tough for me and I should have led a lot more laps than I did. I got to race side-by-side with one of my favorite guys and that was cool."

Norris took off in the lead following his dash victory with Martin, Will Thomas III, Logan Roberson, and Matt Latta in tow. Sixth starting Daryl Charlier was on the move as he passed Latta for fifth on lap three then drove around Roberson for fourth racing off the top side of turn four on lap four. Charlier quickly ran down Thomas and made a crossover move off the top of turn four down the frontstretch and into turn one to get by Thomas for third, despite some contact, on lap six. Roberson followed Charlier past Thomas to regain fourth on lap six.

Martin had been hounding Norris and pulled even for the first time on lap eight, but Norris made a nice move in traffic the following lap to maintain the lead, while Charlier closed in on the front duo. By lap 11, Roberson joined in making it a four-race race for the lead as the top four cars were all flying around the topside of the track in lapped traffic.

Charlier and Roberson resumed their battle as they raced side-by-side for third on lap 14, which allowed Norris and Martin to distance themselves. Martin meanwhile was able to pull even with Norris on laps 16-18, but was never able to lead a lap as Norris once again broke free on lap 19. Martin didn't go away as he tracked Norris back down and pulled even again on lap 23, but still wasn't able to make the pass stick. Martin kept Norris in sight and on lap 27 made the winning move as he was able to slide Norris off turn two and pulled away down the backstretch.

Martin was able to make the right moves through lapped traffic in the final laps and took the checkered flag first for his seventh career Sharon win by 1.572 seconds in the Tom Snyder, Jr.-owned, T&D Performance/Tuff Nuts/Weather Capital Sales/Kevin Martin Trucking/Berkshire Hathaway/Daugherty Motorsports/Accelo Racegear-sponsored #10s. Just 10 cars finished on the lead lap of the 23 that finished the caution-free event.

After out-dueling Charlier the week before for the $3,000 Tour victory at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway, Norris came up short to Martin with a hard fought runner-up finish worth $1,500 driving for his brother-in-law, Nico Dabecco. Charlier followed Norris home in third. Roberson, who continues to lead the Flynn's Tire Tour points, was fourth for the third straight race with his ninth top 5 and 10th top 10 in 10 races. After recording a pair of sixth place finishes in the last three races, Latta did one better for his first top five of the season for the fifth place points man. New York standout, Chad Homan, made his first Sharon Late Model start and had a solid sixth place finish. Thomas dropped to seventh over Josh Ferry, Breyton Santee, and Brady Wonderling.

Kurt Stebbins of Wellsville, NY led all six caution-free laps of the Non-Qualifier to earn $200 in his first ever Sharon start. Martin also set fast time in $100 FK Rod Ends "Shock the Clock" Qualifying with a lap of 18.216. Winning $25 FK Rod Ends heat races were Martin, Norris, Ferry, and Latta. Bo Lockwood won the last chance B main. Norris earned another $100 Sunoco fuel card for winning the Sunoco Dash.

Joel Watson passed Dan Davies on a restart on lap nine and fended him off over the second-half of the event to capture the UMP Modified victory. Watson, who crashed with a lapped car while leading at the last show on June 18, redeemed himself with for a $1,000 payday in the 25-lap Hovis Auto & Truck Supply feature.

"We jumped tires on a lapped car- it was just a fluke thing as probably a mere inch would have made the difference in whether we wrecked or didn't," explained the 48-year-old Conneaut, Ohio driver. "It means a lot to win. We've been working so hard to get this car back together. We had to go to North Carolina to get it re-clipped; lots and lots of damage and lots of work in the garage. My guys dedicated all their time to getting it done and I can't thank those guys enough."

Davies raced out to the early lead with Bud Watson, Joel Watson, and Mike McGee trailing. The two Watsons raced side-by-side for second on lap four with Joel making the pass. Just as lapped traffic was approaching, the first caution was displayed for Dave Airgood, Jr. with eight laps completed. When racing resumed, Joel Watson drove around Davies for the lead on lap nine with fifth starting Nate Young moving into third.

Two more cautions slowed action on laps 15 and 16. When green replaced yellow on lap 17, Young moved past Davies for second. The two battled hard in the ensuing laps with Davies regaining runner-up on lap 20 with a pass off the topside of turn four. Davies though would lose ground in the final laps as Watson's 29th career win came by 3.136 seconds in his NWR/Close Racing Supply/Capp Steel Erectors/Tire Express/Walker Roofing/Lodge at the Lake/Zimmer's Service Center-sponsored #92.

Young was third over McGee. Brian Ruhlman went 11th to fifth. Bud Watson dropped to sixth over Zach Johnson, Gary Olson, Mason Lobb, and Jonathan Taylor. Taylor earned the $100 Summit Racing Equipment gift card for being the hard charger by gaining 11 spots in the feature. Heat winners over the 33-car field were Davies, Bud Watson, Joel Watson, and McGee. Taylor won the last chance B main.

Chad Ruhlman found the high side to his liking in the RUSH Sprint Cars. After dropping to fourth early on, Ruhlman went to the top, banged the boards and passed fellow veteran Andy Priest on lap six for the winning move in the 20-lap Terry Bowser Excavating feature. It was Ruhlman's second win of the season at Sharon, worth $600.

"Grandma Betty is more excited than I am- this is great," expressed the 45-year-old Erie, Pa. standout. "We changed some stuff and went back to last year's notes. We haven't been very good on the top here. Nolan (Groves) has been setting the standard up on top the last month on the cushion. He's a great kid, but must have had a big hunk of mud stuck in his wheel or something. It was cool to throw slide jobs and have Andy (Priest) down on the bottom like that. Hats off to the track prep guys again- this place is awesome! It's been a lot of fun. Brian (Ruhlman) is putting a '410' (non-wing Sprint) together for me and we're going to double team it with Tim (Engles) down at Lernerville and heading to Eldora later this year. I wouldn't have had this opportunity without RUSH to get into this. To go run USAC at Eldora is the ultimate goal so thank everyone that has made this possible."

Priest raced to the early lead, while Nolan Groves passed Ruhlman for third on the opening lap. Groves went to the top like he did in his heat race and drove around Jarod Larson for second on lap four off turn two; however, contact between Larson and Groves down the backstretch sent Larson into a 360-spin. Though Larson never stopped, the caution was displayed and Larson was placed in sixth where he resumed.

Back under green on lap four, Ruhlman made a veteran move to slip under teenager Groves down the frontstretch and was able to get to the top in turn one first to secure second. Blaze Myers put a slider on Groves to take third on lap five. Groves appeared to pack his wheel full of mud and backslid through the field over the remainder of the event.

After racing side-by-side on lap six, Ruhlman's momentum off the top carried him into the lead past Priest. Ruhlman caught lapped traffic on lap 13, but that wouldn't slow his efforts as he set a blistering pace around the fence. Ruhlman's all-time leading ninth career Sharon victory came by a commanding 5.492 seconds in the Tim Engles-owned, Dirt Road Logistics/Shawgo Realty/Signature Property Group/DoTerra Essential Oils-sponsored #68.

Priest was a season best second. Myers was third after starting seventh. Tyler Newhart recorded his first top five of the season in fourth. After winning the last two Sharon races, Gale Ruth, Jr. was fifth. Larson was sixth over Brian Hartzell, Ryan Fraley, Ricky Tucker, Jr., and rookie Zack Wilson. Heat winners over the 20-car field were Groves and Ruhlman.

Chris Schneider was in a good spot- out in front of the Pro Stock feature throughout the duration of the crash-filled 20-lap Gibson Insurance Agency event. In a tune-up for next Saturday's $10,000 to-win Penn-Ohio "Steel Valley Pro Stock Nationals", Schneider led the entire way to become the third different winner in as many races this season and earned $550.

"I'm just real thankful I didn't have to start further back- it looked real rough back there," stated the 43-year-old Lower Burrell, Pa. racer. "I just got out front and tried different lines to feel out the car. This is a new car this year. It's a tad different than the other car I had. It was just a practice night."

The race featured an uncharacteristic five cautions, but three of them were multi-car accidents that all occurred with eight laps completed. When racing resumed on lap nine, sixth starting Curt J. Bish passed Scott Stiffler for second. Twelfth starting Brian Carothers then disposed of Stiffler for third following the final restart on lap 12. Schneider was not contested over the final nine laps as his Butler Truck Parts/Freeport Transport/It's All Clean Pressure Washing/B&T Trucking/Hot Dog Guys-sponsored #55 cruised to his 16th career win by 3.810 seconds over Bish.

Carothers was third. Jackson Humanic and Steve D'Apolito were also able to get by the fading Stiffler to finish fourth and fifth respectively. Stiffler dropped to sixth as Paul Davis, Larry Kugel, Garrett Calvert, and Jason Johns rounded out the top 10.

While it was a new car in victory lane for the first time ever, a familiar face emerged from the cockpit of the Jordan Ehrenberg #JD57 as Garrett Krummert put on the most dominating performance of the season in the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. Krummert took command on lap two and drove off to his first win of the season in the 20-lap HTMA/Precise Racing Products feature that went caution-free in 6:55.298. Krummert became the fourth different winner in as many races this season.

"We were off tonight, Jordan (Ehrenberg) was coming to race, and he's been struggling a bit so we wanted to see if it was the car or something he was doing different," explained the 34-year-old West Middlesex, Pa. racer. "I'm glad we did it because we found a couple things he probably wouldn't have found by not having a bunch of experience. Hopefully this will turn his season around and he'll be better the rest of the year."

Krummert and Tony Tatgenhorst battled side-by-side for the first two laps. And while Tatgenhorst led the opening lap on the outside, Krummert's winning pass came on the bottom on lap two. Krummert caught lapped traffic on lap nine and faced heavy traffic on lap 14, but that was only a momentary slowdown as Krummert took the checkered flag first by a huge margin of 6.750 seconds for his 10th career win in the division and 11th overall at Sharon, but first in the Cabin 2 Castle Home Inspections/330 Creations-sponsored #JD57. Just 11 cars were on the lead lap at the finish.

Tatgenhorst, who won the opener on May 28, was second. Kole Holden, who leads RUSH's $3,500 to-win Hovis Weekly Series points, was third. Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series points leader, Ben Easler, went sixth to fourth as Brandon Ritchey completed the top five. Sixth through 10th were J.C. Boyer, Justin Shea, Josh Deems, Ayden Cipriano, and Rob Kristyak. Heat winners over the 22-car field were Krummert, Easler, and Tatgenhorst.

Sharon Speedway will host the fourth annual "Steel Valley Pro Stock Nationals" this Friday and Saturday (July 15-16). Friday night will be an open practice for all divisions along with qualifying for the Penn-Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series with a possible king of the hill. Saturday will be a complete show for the Penn-Ohio Pro Stocks battling for $10,000 to-win. The Whelen Econo Mods will also be in action. Racing begins at 7 p.m.

Starks Scores Skagit Speedway Win

7/9/22

Alger, WA - For the eighth time in 2022 and the fourth time at Skagit Speedway this year, Trey Starks stood tall in victory lane after another fantastic performance in his family owned sprint car. Les Schwab Tires sponsored Midseason Championship Night, where Starks, Jesson Jacobson, Rick Smith and Adam Holtrop won the feature events.

After setting fast time and winning the dash, Starks set out from the pole of the 30 lap, $3,000 to win Budweiser 360 Sprint A Main event and jetted out to the early lead. It took little time for Jason Solwold to work into second place, and from there, the chase was on, as Starks brought the pair into heavy lapped traffic early in the contest. Trey managed to keep a multiple car length lead most of the time among the slower cars, but Solwold would have a few chances to pull even with Trey as his Shaylen Raye Motorsports car was finding great forward drive down low. Starks would stick primarily to the high side and was stretching his lead when a red flag brought the field together for a lap 26 restart. Solwold gave Trey quite the scare on the restart, actually pulling ahead for the lead for a short run before Starks would reclaim the top spot on the exit of turn two on the high side. Starks would go on to lead the rest of the way for the win ahead of Jason and third place Jesse Schlotfeldt. Both Solwold and Schlotfeldt also won heat races, as did Luke Didiuk.

Skagit Speedway witnessed Jesson jacobson winning his first feature in the Sportsman Sprint division on Saturday night. Jacobson led all 25 laps, and was challenged at times by Steve Parker in slower traffic, but never to the point of losing the top spot. Parker would settle for second with Brett McGhie running third. Jacobson also set quick time on the night. Parker, McGhie and Malachi Gemmer raced to wins in the heats.

Rick Smith has four wins in five main events at Skagit Speedway following his victory at Mid Season Championship night in the Skagit Aggregates Modifieds. Rick took the lead from Brent Morris on the ninth lap and kept the field at bay the rest of the way for the victory. Graham Cook made his first appearance at Skagit Speedway in a couple of seasons worthwhile with a run up to second place, and Geoff Morris came home third. Geoff also collected a heat race win, as did Ben Gunderson.

Adam Holtrop is now a multiple time feature winner on the year in the Hornet class. Holtrop took over the lead early from Colin Sims and held Mike Mcpherson and Brian Michelson at bay to take home the win. Holtrop and Michelson were the heat winners.

Patience pays off for Macedo with AFCS Fremont win; Weaver sweeps 305 weekend

Saturday, July 9, 2022

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Cole Macedo has learned the fine art of patience as a sprint car driver. The Lemoore, California driver of the Ray Brooks Racing 410 sprint car watched video of Greg Wilson being patient on the bottom of Fremont Speedway and claiming wins this year. Macedo copied that mentality and drove to his fourth win of the year at “The Track That Action Built” Saturday, July 9 on Fort Ball Pizza Palace Night.

The victory, Macedo’s sixth overall win of 2022, solidified his spot atop the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group. Macedo also leads the points at both Fremont Speedway and Attica Raceway Park.

Following back-to-back cautions – the only stoppages in the 30-lap main event – Macedo drove around Travis Philo to take the lead on lap 18 and picked his way through traffic for his eighth career Fremont victory.

“I’ve been getting beat here by Greg Wilson and I’m getting tired of it. I’ve been watching a lot of video and watching what he does. That is the first race in my life that I never even chanced running the top. It paid off. My guys have been working hard and have gotten me better and better. I have to thank Braden, his girlfriend, the Lang gang, Cody, Mike, Steven, Emily Linder, Stephanie…we have a lot of great supporters on this car,” said Macedo of his Fremont Auto Parts, Grant Decker Construction, Linder’s Speed Equipment, Gill Construction, CK Mechanical, ML Graphics, Catawba Island Club, Durst backed #18.

Fremont’s Paul Weaver took the lead in the 25-lap non-stop Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 A-main on lap 11 and drove away for his third straight win at Fremont and fifth overall for 2022. The victory also puts him in nearly a dead heat with Jamie Miller for the lead in the NAPA Auto Parts of Bryan AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales.

“I looked at the rule book and a lot of guys were switching over to the gas shocks. Doug Berryman hooked me up with the shocks. I tried over driving it but the harder you ran the worse it was because there were slick spots out there,” said Weaver beside his B&B Drain Service, M&L Excavating, Hampshire Racing Engines backed #31.

In a spectacular 20 lap Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature that featured side by side and at times three wide battles for the lead, Ottawa Lake, Michigan’s Dave Gumby Jr., a rookie this season, held off Jeff Babcock for his first career Fremont win. The race featured several lead changes with Jim Holcomb leading laps 1-3, Gumby leading laps 4-8, Babcock holding the point for laps 9-11, and Gumby leading laps 12-20. The feature saw only two cautions, after lap one and on lap 14 for debris.

Following Gumby to the checkers were Babcock, Shawn Valenti, Ben Clapp and Jamie Miller.

“This is my first actual win in a dirt car. I won at Sandusky (Asphalt) twice. Ron Miller – my wife Stephanie’s grandpa – built one hell of a hotrod. My truck owner David and his nephew Tim worked their asses off all winter on this thing. All you have to do is stay consistent and not mess up,” said Gumby beside his Ron Miller Race Cars, Get Bent Fab backed #P51.

Travis Philo grabbed the early lead of the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint A-main with Kyle Capodice racing to his inside lap after lap after lap with Macedo being patient in third while Chris Andrews, Craig Mintz and DJ Foos gave chase. Capodice used traffic to grab the lead on lap seven but Philo retook the top spot on lap 10.

At the half-way point it was a tremendous three car battle for the lead involving Philo, Macedo and Capodice just as the caution flew for debris. On the restart third running Capodice spun. When the green flew Macedo immediately challenged Philo utilizing the bottom groove, taking the lead on lap 18.

Macedo encountered heavy lapped traffic with six laps to go, but he patiently picked them off one at a time and drove to the win over a charging Andrews, Philo, Foos and Mintz.

Jamie Miller lead the first 10 laps of the 305 A-main but had challenges from TJ Michael lap after lap. Traffic came into play and Weaver used it to take second and drove into the lead on lap 11. Once in front, Weaver steadily pulled away and built up a nearly four second lead by the time the checkers flew. Michael, Miller, Matt Foos and Kody Brewer rounded out the top five in the non-stop affair.

There will be no racing at Fremont Speedway on Saturday, July 16 but action resumes Saturday, July 23 with the AFCS 410 and 305 sprints along with the dirt trucks and the first ever appearance of the USAC D2 Midgets.

Must See Racing

SOUTH AMHERST, Ohio (July 9, 2022) – J.J. Henes said after his most recent Must See Racing Midwest Lights Series victory that his team was rounding into championship contention, and he backed that statement up Saturday with a second consecutive series win.

Henes dominated the Midwest Lights portion of Lorain Raceway Park’s Comet Classic, cruising to a 2.743-second victory over Joshua Sexton at the three-eighths-mile paved oval despite a late caution that bunched the field up and made things a bit more intense down the stretch.

The 18-year-old and 2020 series champion first took the lead on lap six of the 30-lap feature by passing polesitter and early leader Junior Gould. He then held the top spot through a pair of restarts on laps 12 and 26, going unchallenged each time en route to his second Midwest Lights win of the season.

“Getting through traffic to grab the lead was the hardest part,” noted Henes. “Once we got to the lead, the car worked really well in clean air, and it was just up to me to hit my marks and not make any mistakes. After changing the Jacob’s Ladder at the beginning of the year, the car has been really strong.

“Any time you have a late restart, I think you’re always a little bit uneasy behind the wheel, but I was confident in my race car and knew we had what it took to hold on,” Henes added. “Every once in a while I could see (Cody) Gallogly and (Andrew) Bogusz, but I didn’t know exactly where Sexton was, so when that last yellow came out I knew we had to be on our game with him right beside me.

“We’re here to win races, but we’ve started looking at the points and we’re getting closer. It’s on now.”

In winning Saturday’s race at Lorain, Henes moved atop the all-time Midwest Lights feature win list with his fourth career series victory, surpassing reigning series titlist Joey Wyckoff and Charlie Schultz.

Saturday’s feature took just over 14 minutes to complete, with a pair of cautions slowing the pace at laps 11 and 25. The first yellow flag waved for debris in turns three and four and the final interruption was for a spin by Lauren DePasquale in turn two.

Behind Henes and Sexton, Kalamazoo winner Andrew Bogusz completed the podium ahead of series point leader Cody Gallogly and Gould, who slipped from the pole to fifth at the checkered flag.

Henes kicked off the program by setting the fastest time in qualifying with a lap of 13.314 seconds (101.397 mph) around the three-eighths-mile paved oval, just .004 seconds off the series’ Lorain track record he set on June 17 during the Super Crown Nationals.

It was Henes’ second straight Midwest Lights fast time and the fifth of his career.

Junior Gould and Gallogly split the victories in a pair of eight-lap heat races. For Gould, who will retire at the conclusion of this season, it was his first Must See Racing Midwest Lights heat victory.

The Must See Racing Midwest Lights season is scheduled to continue Aug. 6 at Lorain Raceway Park, as part of the Bob Frey Classic alongside the Must See Racing National Sprint Car Series.

DJ Netto wins a wild Ocean Sprints feature in Watsonville Friday night

By Gary Thomas

Watsonville, CA…A main event that featured a little bit of everything on Friday saw Hanford’s DJ Netto come out on top to score his first Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo victory of the season.

Sharing victory lane with Netto during the event were Robbie Sawyer with the IMCA Modifieds, Jacob Mallet Jr. with the IMCA Sport Mods, Kenny Stragalinos with the 4-Bangers, Shawn Jones with the Dwarf Cars and Jackie Yeung with the Police N Pursuit.

A wide and racy surface put together by Tom Sagmiller made for some excellent action in the 30-lap Ocean Sprints feature. Hanford’s Mitchell Faccinto hopped out to the early lead and hung tough through a couple caution periods during the early going. It soon became an intense three-car battle between Faccinto, DJ Netto and Aromas racer Justin Sanders. With the crowd coming to their feet Sanders jumped to the top spot on lap 13 and began pulling away from the field.

The complexion of the race changed however, when Sanders suffered a flat tire just before a restart and relegated the lead back to Faccinto after a couple hard fought laps. After going back green following a caution it then became a battle between Faccinto and Netto, as the two Central Valley racers went back and forth over a three-lap period. When another caution waved though it was noticed that Faccinto now had a right rear tire going down.

Netto pounced on the opportunity and assumed the lead that he would never relinquish. Castro Valley’s Jake Andreotti took a couple of shots on late restarts, but Netto drove off to accept the Ed Entz checkered flag even despite losing a right rear shock during the feature. Kaleb Montgomery battled his way up to second by the finish, while Andreotti ran third with a left rear going flat over the waning stages. Caeden Steele and Kurt Nelson rounded out the top-five.

The top-10 was rounded out by Price Rite Restaurant Equipment Hard Charger Zane Blanchard, Travis Labat, Gauge Garcia, Michael Pombo and Jason Chisum. Steven Kent earned the Beer Optics Hard Luck Award after getting upside down in the main event.

Ocean Sprints finish: 1. 88N-DJ Netto[1]; 2. 3-Kaleb Montgomery[6]; 3. 7P-Jake Andreotti[8]; 4. 121-Caeden Steele[4]; 5. 72W-Kurt Nelson[9]; 6. 7Z-Zane Blanchard[15]; 7. 61-Travis Labat[11]; 8. 21X-Gauge Garcia[12]; 9. 98-Michael Pombo[10]; 10. 25Z-Jason Chisum[14]; 11. 3T-Nick Ringo[13]; 12. 50-Bryce Eames[20]; 13. 33H-Eric Humphries[16]; 14. 38-Colby Johnson[22]; 15. 72S-Bradley Dillard[21]; 16. 3M-Adam Kaeding[18]; 17. 72JR-Chris Nelson[17]; 18. 88A-Joey Ancona[19]; 19. 21-Mitchell Faccinto[2]; 20. 2X-Justin Sanders[5]; 21. 37-Steven Kent[7]; 22. 17-Rickey Sanders[3]

Prunedale’s Fred Lind led early in the IMCA Dirt Modified finale, until Bakersfield’s Robbie Sawyer blasted to the lead on the restart. Sawyer led the remainder to tally his first career Ocean Speedway victory. Jim Pettit II, JC Elrod, Raymond Kelsen and Lind completed the top-five.

IMCA Modified finish: 1. 198-Robby Sawyer[4]; 2. 6-Jim Pettit II[3]; 3. 84X-JC Elrod[2]; 4. 01-Raymond Keldsen Jr[8]; 5. 77-Fred Lind[1]; 6. 20-Cody Burke[6]; 7. 4X-Anthony Slaney[5]; 8. 09-Eric Van Hooser[9]; 9. 55-Brian Cass[7]

The 20-lap IMCA Sport Mod feature was a hard-fought contest early on that saw Orion Messina charge to the early lead. Jacob Mallet Jr. appeared to be the fastest car on the track however, and claimed the lead right around the halfway point. Mallet picked up the win over Markus Frazier, Messina, Billy Robertson and point leader Jonathan Hagio.

IMCA Sport Mod finish: 1. 127-Jacob Mallet Jr[9]; 2. 15F-Markus Frazier[7]; 3. 30H-Orion Messina[2]; 4. 5-Billy Robertson[12]; 5. 46-Jonathan Hagio[8]; 6. 44-Austin VanHoff[10]; 7. 30C-Codie Hample[1]; 8. 89-Duane Bieser[13]; 9. 42B-Max Baggett[5]; 10. 3G-Chuck Golden[6]; 11. 22W-Charlie Hunter[14]; 12. 33-Jeff Mead[3]; 13. 13-Austin McMillian[4]; 14. 95-Justin Parr[11] The Four Bangers showcased some of the best racing of the night, with their 15-lap feature being a very close contest. Kate Beardsley jumped to the point at the waving of the green flag but then felt pressure in the form of Kenny Stragalinos. With lapped traffic coming into play Stragalinos used it to his advantage, zig zagging his way through to take the top-spot and eventually the victory.

Four Banger finish: 1. 720-Kenny Stragalinos[4]; 2. 43-Kate Beardsley[2]; 3. 0-Jason Lazzerini[12]; 4. 2-Nicole Beardsley[5]; 5. 52-Tony Gullo[9]; 6. 2X-Bill Beardsley[6]; 7. 50-Tony Smith[8]; 8. 51-Charlie Hernandez[7]; 9. 112-Travis VanGilder[11]; 10. 50F-Shelbie Freeman[14]; 11. 37-Peter Vannerus[10]; 12. 10-Amaya Flowers[3]; 13. 810-Matt Hill[13]; 14. 5F-Shane Freeman[1] The South Bay Dwarf Car feature was all about San Jose driver Shawn Jones, who easily captured the 20-lapper over Danny Wagner, Eric Wiesler, Trafton Chandler and Dan Zuger.

Dwarf Car finish: 1. 26B-Shawn Jones[3]; 2. 11D-Danny Wagner[1]; 3. 64B-Eric Weisler[6]; 4. 42B-Trafton Chandler[8]; 5. 26N-Dan Zuger[4]; 6. 10B-Barry Waddell[5]; 7. 69-Eddy Claessen[7]; 8. 88B-Travis Day[2]; 9. 57-Kieran Costas[10]; 10. 42-Keith Costas[9]

Seven Winners In Seven Races As Dalton Herrick Wins CRSA A-Main At Penn Can

Race Report by Steven Ovens – July 9th, 2022

(SUSQUEHANNA, PA) – The theme of the 2022 season for the CRSA Sprints presented by Super Gen Products has been parity. In six prior events there had been six different faces visiting Victory Lane.

Following round seven at Penn Can Speedway Friday night, Dalton Herrick pushed that number up to seven different winners in as many races.

Jordan Hutton and Herrick entered the night as the top two in the points and found themselves on the front row for the 25-lap A-Main after the redraw. Herrick blasted the top of the track to take the lead on the opening circuit but the yellow quickly came out with no laps scored in what turned into a rather rough and tumble event.

Mike Van Pelt and James Layton got together and spun toward the infield. Van Pelt’s night was done with a flat tire and no work area and no guaranteed time to work on the car. Layton continued on and drove his way back into the Top 5 by race’s end before finding trouble again in the closing laps.

The race would get three more laps in before the first red flag of the night was displayed. John Cunningham got too high exiting turn four, sending his car down the track and into the No. 410 of Jerry Sehn Jr. and the No. 13T of Trevor Years. Cunningham did one full rotation in a flip and landed facing 180 degrees in the opposite direction with traffic bearing down on him at the fastest point of the racetrack. No further contact was made, with Cunningham and Years’ nights ending on Lap 3. Sehn Jr. returned just as the green flag was ready to fly.

Four more laps would click off before Ronnie Greek sent his No. 28 into Turn 3 a little too deep and collected Dana Wagner’s No. 25W in Turn 4. Greek continued on but Wagner’s streak of four-straight Top 5 finishes at “The Can” came to an end.

Other incidents late in the going involved Aaron Shelton and John Smith making contact in Turn 1 with less than five laps to go. Shelton got both rear tires in the air but was able to continue on. Smith suffered a flat tire and had to pull out of the racing groove and stop in Turn 4 to go off on the hook.

The aforementioned James Layton drove his way back into the Top 5 after going tail, but got on the accelerator too quick in Turn 2 causing the Tripodi Contracting No. 14 to spin drawing the race’s final yellow flag.

While all of the calamity slowed the race down several times, there was a great race going on inside the Top 5. Herrick controlled the pace in the lead and was able to keep Hutton a fair distance back to prevent any big moves or slidejob attempts.

The story inside the Top 5 though was nearby Kirkwood, NY resident Scott Landers. Landers and his Binghamton Truck and Tire Center No. 33 helped sponsor the night’s action at Penn Can and the driver of the DH Stone machine did not disappoint his supporters in the VIP Tower! Starting from the eighth position, Landers quickly worked his way into the Top 5 and found a line he liked on the bottom lane to elevate his ride into the third spot to bag his first podium in his short CRSA Sprints career.

With all the yellow flags throughout the event that brought the need for many restarts, which seemed to be a hot button issue post-race. Herrick consistently waited until the last chalk line to fire on restarts, which he has the prerogative to do. It made it challenging for the drivers behind him who tried anticipating the starts to get a run on the leader- Herrick had none of it on this night.

“Anybody that knows me knows I don’t like running the bottom and tonight I had to,” remarked Herrick.

“When you’ve got guys like Jordan (Hutton) behind you, you can’t mess up on those restarts.”

Hutton was visibly upset about the restarts during post-race Victory Lane and didn’t mince words about not only the restarts but what more he needed to get the top spot on the podium.

“Probably just better restarts. Going into the green everyone was bunching up and I had people slamming into the rear of me. (Herrick) would pull me by four car-lengths going into Turn 1. Just happy to leave here with the points lead.”

Hutton came into the night with a 14-point advantage over Herrick and pushed it to 15 points after the heat races. With the Herrick win and Hutton second place, Herrick now trims the lead down to 10 points. Something Herrick admitted is going to be a good, strong battle all the way to the end.

“It’s going to be tooth and nail right until the end. It’s been a good gentlemanly battle so far and that’s all you can ask for.”

A former Oswego Speedway Small-Block Supermodified track champion, now turned 305 sprint car driver, Scott Landers, completed the podium. Landers felt like on this special night for his team and supporters it was more like a win in front of the hometown crowd.

“We appreciate Penn Can for letting us race down here,” said Landers.

“We hurt a motor Sunday at Thunder Mountain. I called Shawn Donath and he had one sitting on the floor, we put it in and here we are tonight. We’re pretty much self-funded here and we’re just here to have some fun. This is a great class and a great group of drivers to race with.”

The races Powdertech Powdercoating Hard Charger of the race went to rookie competitor Calvin Wheelock who started shotgun on the field and passed 10 cars to get to eighth. Landers took home an extra $25 as he also earned the Maguire Cars “Magnificent Move of the Race.” Van Pelt took home the award drivers appreciate but try to avoid receiving- the Midstate Basement Authorities “Out of the Basement” bonus award. Eagle Enterprises $25 Heat Wins went to Cunningham, Hutton and Smith.

The CRSA Sprints will now head to Utica-Rome Speedway on Friday July 15 in a highly anticipated return for the fourth round of the I-90 “Pit Stop” Challenge Series presented by Pit Stop Convenience Stores.

Thorson earns 1st career Attica 410 sprint win; Markham uses restart to score late model victory; Weaver holds on for 305 win

Friday, July 8, 2022

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Tanner Thorson moved from the cushion to the bottom of Attica Raceway Park with a pair of laps to go in the 410 sprint feature and the move paid off. Thorson, from Carson City, Nevada, drove to his first ever Attica win aboard the Demyan/Rudzik sprint car on Croghan Colonial Bank/Smith Family Foods/Bucyrus Road Materials Night presented by Integrity Auto and Truck Sales of Bucyrus.

It was anything but easy for the 2022 Chili Bowl champion and former USAC national midget champion. He took the lead from Travis Philo after Philo got sideways in traffic on lap nine. But Phil came storming back and was right on Thorson’s rear bumper with two laps to go. That’s when Thorson came down off the cushion to the bottom of the track and pulled away for the win.

“I’m just getting a little more comfortable. We all have our different feels and BK (Brian Kemenah) has been working hard to get me better. Hats off to him and this whole crew. I’ve done good in the 49x before and finally get the monkey off our back. It’s been a trying year for me in multiple cars. I can’t thank these guys enough…Rudzik and everyone that’s involved in this program. Hopefully we can carry this momentum into the Doty,” said Thorson beside his Rudzik Excavating, Kistler Racing Products backed machine.

“I figured it (bottom) was coming in. The top started getting dirtier as we were going along and I felt like I was getting slower especially in one and two. I saw his nose peak down there and I knew I was going to have to chop it down there and hopefully stick and he not drive around me,” added Thorson of his $4,000 pay day.

With his runner-up finish and Craig Mintz and Trey Jacobs finishing third and fourth, the point battle for the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group really tightens up.

The Dirt Nerds Podcast/Propane.com UMP Late Model feature was a barn-burner. Ashland, Ohio’s Ryan Markham, a former Attica track champion, used a restart with 10 laps to go to drive around Devin Shiels to take the lead and drove to his first Attica win of the year. It was his 20th career victory at the track.

“This is the sixth night on this car and we have two wins. It’s not even new, it’s a 2017 chassis. We had that first start and he (Shiels) did that big slider on me and I was like well it’s a little too early in the race for that so I just wanted to bide my time and save my tires a little bit. I started racing him a little harder there…I knew my car was just good,” said Markham beside his B&B Drain Service, Accu-Force Shock Dyno, Mars Trucking, Monster Motors, TruForm, Macto Tools by Jimmy, Clear Detail backed #5M.

Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver has more laps around Attica than any other competitor. The veteran, who has more victories at the track than anyone in Attica history, nearly gave one away. On the final lap Weaver drove off the high side of turn two off the track, but was able to bring it back on and hold off a charging Jimmy McGrath for his second victory of the season. It was his 66th career Fremont Fence 305 victory.

“When you keep telling yourself ‘don’t do that, don’t do that’ then you do that…it’s a sign of old age. Just to be fair, the cushion was actually on the other side of the banking,” joked Weaver. “When the track is this good everyone is wide open. It’s a half-mile on the very outside of the track and a quarter mile on the bottom. The poor motor was just screaming on the top side but I knew I had to keep in the throttle because they were all over me,” said Weaver beside his Steve Brown’s B&B Drain Service, M&L Excavating, Hampshire Racing Engines backed #31.

Weaver’s win coupled with Jamie Miller’s sixth place finish really tightens up the battle for title of the NAPA of Bryan AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales. Weaver is looking to make it three AFCS titles in a row.

At the drop of the green for the 30-lap 410 sprint feature, Philo bolted into the lead with Thorson, Mintz, Kyle Capodice and Lachlan McHugh in tow. Philo built a sizeable lead before lapped traffic came into play by lap eight. Phil nearly spun while battling in traffic, handing the lead to Thorson.

Following a lap 14 caution, Thorson could not shake Philo as Mintz, Capodice, McHugh and Trey Jacobs gave chase. Once Thorson started putting laps together, he pulled away slightly from Philo who had his hands full with Mintz.

A caution on lap 19 followed by a nasty tumble for Brian Smith on the restart – he was not injured – allowed Philo to stay right on Thorson’s tail. After the green flew, Philo stayed within a couple of car lengths of Thorson. As the laps ticked off Philo took a tenth of a second off of Thorson’s lead every circuit. With two to go Phil raced inside of Thorson who drove to the bottom of turns one and two and was able to pull away for the win. Philo, Mintz, Jacobs and McHugh rounded out the top five.

Shiels grabbed the early lead of the 25-lap late model feature with Markham, Justin Chance, Ryan Missler and Larry Bellman in pursuit. A caution with five laps in kept the field close as Shiels could not shake Markham or Missler.

Markham kept racing to Shiels outside lap after lap but a caution with 10 to go gave Shiels a clear track. On the restart Markham drove around Shiels into the lead while Missler, 13th starter Rusty Schlenk and Casey Noonan battled for third.

A final caution for debris with four laps to go did not stop Markham as he drove to the win over Shiels, Missler, Noonan and Chance.

In a caution-filled 305 sprint A-main, Jimmy McGrath lead the first eight laps until Weaver wrestled control away on lap nine. Third through seventh changed hands every lap until the final caution fell on lap 19 when third place running Dustin Stroup had a rear axle failure.

Weaver could not shake McGrath and when Weaver slid off the track on the last lap McGrath made a last ditch charge but came up just short as Weaver held on for the win over McGrath, Tyler Shullick, Mike Keegan and Logan Riel.

Justin Sanders, Dan Jinkerson and Ryan Robinson bring home electrifying wins at Placerville Speedway

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…A capacity crowd was treated to a solid night of racing and a spectacular fireworks display to highlight the festivities at Placerville Speedway on Independence Day.

Aromas, CA’s Justin Sanders finished the night by racing to his fifth victory in as many Winged 360 Sprint Car starts at the track. Diamond Springs’ Dan Jinkerson pocketed an entertaining Ltd. Late Model feature, while Foresthill’s Ryan Robinson captured a thrilling Pure Stock win. All three divisions presented the large crowd with an excellent evening of grass roots dirt track racing.

The 25-lap Thompson’s Winged Sprint Car main event began with Easton driver Michael Pombo leading the opening lap, before Justin Sanders was able to slip to his inside for the top spot shortly after. All eyes were glued to Chase Johnson however, who ran the ragged edge of the quarter-mile in exciting fashion. The Penngrove driver rocketed up to second and began to challenge the leader, until he got over the edge in turn one to draw a caution.

As is the norm with Sanders up front it made things difficult for the rest of the field, although he did feel pressure on a few different restarts from both Pombo and Lincoln’s Blake Carrick. He did not let that shake him however and drove away to accept the Darin Stahl checkered flag for his 21st career Winged 360 triumph at the track. Blake Carrick crossed the stripe in second to cap a strong weekend that also saw him win at Marysville on Friday.

Pombo earned his first career Placerville Speedway podium in third, Isaiah Vasquez matched his best ever finish at the track in fourth and Gauge Garcia completed the top-five to also bring home a career best on the red clay. Andy Forsberg, Ryan Robinson, 17th starter Jodie Robinson, 18th starter Jimmy Trulli and Shane Hopkins rounded out the top-10. A total of 28 Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged Sprint Cars competed on Independence Day.

Winged Sprint Car finish: 1. 4SA-Justin Sanders[2]; 2. 38B-Blake Carrick[8]; 3. 98M-Michael Pombo[1]; 4. 83SA-Isaiah Vasquez[6]; 5. 21X-Gauge Garcia[11]; 6. 92-Andy Forsberg[10]; 7. 7C-Ryan Robinson[7]; 8. 4-Jodie Robinson[17]; 9. 33T-Jimmy Trulli[18]; 10. 21-Shane Hopkins[13]; 11. X1-Michael Faccinto[12]; 12. 21M-Michael Ing[15]; 13. 94-Greg Decaires V[19]; 14. 93-Stephen Ingraham[20]; 15. 83T-Tanner Carrick[5]; 16. 83V-Ricky Sanders[3]; 17. 85-CJ Humphreys[14]; 18. 34-Andy Gregg[16]; 19. 28-Chase Johnson[4]; 20. 01-Kalib Henry[9]

The Mountain Democrat Ltd. Late Models put on some of the best racing we have seen all season long during the Freedom Fireworks spectacular. A well-groomed racing surface allowed for two and three wide action at times. Current point leader Dan Jinkerson started from the pole and held command out front, but it was not easy for the defending track champ. A bevy of drivers fought it out behind him with one of the best shows turned in by Lincoln’s Dan Brown Jr.

Brown found the high-scary side to his liking and blasted around the thick cushion, all the while dealing with several challengers, including Ray Trimble, Matt Michelli, Jay Norton and others. He closed up and kept the leader honest, but Jinkerson hit his marks and took home his fourth victory of the season in five races. Brown crossed the stripe in second, with Trimble third, Michelli fourth and Norton in fifth. A total of 18 Ltd. Late Models signed into the pit area for what fell under the Xtreme Series sanction.

Ltd. Late Model finish: 1. 23-Dan Jinkerson[1]; 2. 15-Dan Brown Jr[6]; 3. 37-Ray Trimble[3]; 4. 96M-Matt Micheli[4]; 5. 15J-Jay Norton[9]; 6. 23J-Tyler Lightfoot[11]; 7. 57-Rod Oliver[8]; 8. 3-Eddie Gardner[7]; 9. 196-Joey Olschowka Jr[13]; 10. 98-Kiely Ricardo[10]; 11. 3X-Josh Combs[12]; 12. 4X-Anthony Slaney[2]; 13. 29-Matt Davis[5]; 14. 01-Terry Kaiser[14]

The Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks ended up contesting a 15-lap feature due to time, but in that span, they absolutely brought the house down with an outstanding main event. Like the Late Models, two and three wide racing was prevalent all race long with the Pure Stocks. Early on it was Jason Armstrong who looked to snag his first victory of the season as he led the hungry pack of drivers.

Sprint Car competitor Ryan Robinson made his second career Pure Stock start and thrilled the crowd producing several bold passes after starting from the fifth row. He eventually found himself up front but then had to deal with severe front-suspension damage over the closing circuits. Diamond Springs’ Kevin Jinkerson tried everything to get by the wounded car of Robinson, but the 21-year-old wheeled the machine for all it was worth.

Jinkerson gave it one final shot in the last corner, but Robinson beat him out by less than half a car length for an exhilarating first career Pure Stock win. Wayne Trimble ended up finishing third, with Nick Baldwin battling back to run fourth and Clarence Holbrook rounded out the top-five. Sixteen Pure Stocks competed during the 4th of July extravaganza.

Pure Stock finish: 1. 23-Ryan Robinson[10]; 2. 30-Kevin Jinkerson[7]; 3. 68E-Wayne Trimble[9]; 4. 17-Nick Baldwin[12]; 5. 2H-Clarence Holbrook[5]; 6. 77T-Jason Armstrong[2]; 7. 87-Jason Poppert[3]; 8. 64-Thomas Jensen[4]; 9. 316-Ryan Murphy[17]; 10. 47-Michael Murphy[11]; 11. 47B-Angela Brown[14]; 12. 93-Mel Byers[1]; 13. 4-Jonny Walsh[16]; 14. 1-Chris D'angelo[18]; 15. 42F-Les Friend[13]; 16. 16-Tommy Sturgeon[8]; 17. 74-Russell Murphy[6]

The Placerville Speedway returns to action this Saturday with Red Hawk Casino Night at the Races. On tap will be the Thompson’s Winged 360 Sprint Cars, the Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks, Mtn. Democrat Mini Trucks and the BCRA Lightning Sprints.

 

Pirtek Renegades

A record 30 winged Pirtek Renegades attacked the high banks of Cedar Lake Speedway on Saturday night for the second night of their annual Independence Day celebration. Pirtek heat race #1 went to Jack Berger in his 2022 Renegade debut. RTS podcast heat #2 went to (Pheasant Leggs) Casey Lang, who also led all racers with 153 passing points. CLS heat race #3 was claimed by Tony Kaus.

Berger and Bruce Allen redrew the front row for the 20-lap finale, and Berger opened a quick early gap. Behind the leader, Allen, Brady Donnohue and Chris Vogel were locking horns for the runner-up spot. A steady charge from Mark Chevalier saw the P1 cracking the top five near the halfway point after starting ninth. Lapped traffic barely slowed Berger, as the 19B ran a masterful race to pick up the clean-sweep win in the caution-free main event. Donnohue came home second in front of Lang and Chevalier while Tyler Rabenberg rounded out the top five.

The Pirtek Renegades have an open weekend on the calendar and will return to action on Friday, July 15, when the traditional sprints head south to join the Mid-American Renegades for an event at the Chateau Speedway in Lansing, MN.

UMSS      New Richmond, WI

The traditional sprint cars of the Pirtek Renegades joined the World of Outlaws at Cedar lake Speedway for their annual Independence Day weekend sprint car showdown. Twenty-five racers checked in for the Friday night portion of the two-day special event. Cam Schafer scored the win in Pirtek heat race #1, while Nick DaRonco charged up from the eighth starting spot to claim the RTS podcast heat race #2. The CLS final heat race saw Jake Kouba claiming the win. DaRonco’s last-to-first run resulted in the Britt, MN chauffeur besting all drivers with a whopping 163 passing points.

Prior to the 20-lap feature, it was the second installment of the GT Transport Hot Shot Challenge, where the top four passing points earners were given the opportunity to elect a tail-end starting position. If a driver choosing to start at the rear won the feature, GT Transport would pay out a handsome $2,000 bonus. With Terry Galle of GT Transport waving 20 Benjamin Franklins in front of the eligible drivers: Nick DaRonco, Brad Cunningham, Cam Schafer, and Rob Caho, Jr., all four declined the challenge and retained their starting positions. The final GT Transport Hot Shot Challenge will occur on September 10, at the Jerry Richert Memorial race, when the bonus creeps up another $1,000, to $3,000, with the top six passing point earners eligible.

For the feature race, it was DaRonco and Cunningham pacing the pack, and the pair were in lock step for the first two circuits, while Mike Mueller, Jake Kouba, and Schafer were in a tight three-way tussle for third. After a break in the action on lap four, the final 16 laps clicked off caution free. DaRonco established the #8 as the car to beat while Schafer ran a groove higher than the rest of the field to progress up to second position just past the crossed-flags. Dodging traffic and testing multiple lines, Schafer hunted in vain for the necessary speed to chase down DaRonco - who raced to his second sticker of 2022. Schafer crossed the line as runner-up, ahead of Kouba, Cunningham, and Mueller.

The winged Pirtek Renegades wrap up the weekend with the Outlaws on Saturday, July 2. More information on upcoming events for the Pirtek Renegades, as well as links to other Renegades series, can be found at www.umsprints.com, or on facebook.

Lynch Latches Onto the Loot at Tri-City Raceway Park;
Shingledecker Doubles for the Weekend; Schneider, Myers, and Maskal Also Score

(July 3, 2022): After spending three nights racing in the Pennsylvania Speedweek, Sye Lynch returned to his Western PA roots to take the Shawgo Real Estate, LLC 410 Sprint Car portion of the Holiday Extravaganza was presented at Tri-City Raceway Park by Big Dog R/C.
Also getting a big win was Jeremiah Shingledecker in the BRP Modified Tour challenge with the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds. This win was in a Big Block Modified, while his win on Saturday was aboard the 358 Modified.
The winner of Ray’s Race, paying $5,000 to the Penn Ohio Pro Stocks and the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks was Chris Schneider.
Taking the checkers in the Allegheny Tool & Supply RUSH Sprints was Blaze Myers and, in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks it was Levi Maskal.
“I’m really happy that Tri-City put on a show like this,” Lynch said. He added, “I wish we could get a little more support from the drivers.”
Lynch explained that the lapped traffic was tough to deal with because the track was “a little technical.” He noted, too, that Brandon Matus was setting a good pace early in the race and that A.J. Flick would be coming.
Defending track champion, Brandon Matus, was the lucky recipient of the pole position for the twenty-lapper. To his right was Rod Jones. In row two, A.J. Flick lined up next to Sye Lynch. Carl Bowser and Jack Sodeman, Jr. were in the third row. The fourth belonged to Dan Kuriger and Brandon Spithaler, hot off a win on Saturday night. Bob Felmlee and Leyton Wagner occupied row five. Brent Matus and Chase Metheney had row six.
Brandon Matus jumped out to the early lead, with Jones, Lynch, Flick, and Bowser following. Within a couple of laps, Lynch moved into second and he was chasing Brandon Matus for the lead. Lynch made the pass on lap nine. As the filed was coming to complete lap ten, Matus sustained a broken rear end, eliminating any chance for him to mount a counterattack.
Flick lined up second for the restart, with Jones, Spithaler, Bowser, Sodeman, and Metheny next in line.
Lynch pulled out to a substantial lead, but Flick began to reel him in late in the race. Time ran out for him, however. Taking third was Jones, ahead of Spitahaler, and Bowser.

Positions six through ten went to Sodeman, Metheney, Wagner, Kuriger, and Felmlee.

The Shawgo Real Estate, LLC 410 Sprint Car heat races were taken by Sye Lynch and Jack Sodeman, Jr. There was no B Main.
The BRP Modified Tour thirty-five lap challenge with the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds started with Dave Murdick and Brian Swartzlander pulling the best pills. Behind them were Jeremiah Shingledecker, and Rex King, Jr. Row three paired Erick Rudolph and Kyle Fink in his Small Block. The fourth belonged to Jim Rasey and Brad Rapp. Departing from row five were Garrett Krummert, also in a Big Block, and Greg Martin, also racing a Small Block. Row six had Rick Regalski and Travis Shingledecker in his usual Small Block.
Murdick fired first, with Jeremiah Shingledecker into second and Rudolph in third. Before the first lap was registered, though, Shingledecker took command, bringing Rudolph into second. After Murdick came King, Swartzlander, Krummert, Fink, Rasey, Regalski, and Rapp.
Jeremiah Shingledecker built a huge lead until a pair of yellows at the twenty-lap mark brought him back to Rudolph. Swartlander lined up third for the restart, with King beside him, Krummert and Regalski behind them. When racing resumed, Rudolph began to fade.
The racers made it to lap thirty-three before the next caution was displayed. They had some difficulty getting the last two laps in the books. In fact, due to a caution on lap thirty-four, the race was extended.
The extra distance did not affect Jeremiah Shingledecker. He crossed for the win. Swartzlander and Rudolph limped home, both noting that they beat their tires up. Not so lucky was King, who lost a podium finish due to a flat tire in turns three and four on the last lap. He was scored in seventh.
Between Rudolph and King were Rasey, Regalski, and Martin. After King were Tyler Willard, Murdick, and Mark Frankhouser.
“It probably was a good day to start up front, but I could go wherever I wanted,” the happy winner commented. “I don’t know how far back I could have started to pull this off,” he added.
Swartzlander, who did start up front, fell back on the opening lap. “We got on the outside and I couldn’t get going,” he explained. “I had to get back to the bottom and ease it back up.”
He agreed with Rudolph that tires were key to the outcome of the race “We got to second real quick, but I couldn’t touch him,” Rudolph remarked about Shingledecker.
The BRP Modified Tour and Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds presented three heats, with the victories going to Jeremiah Shingledecker, Dave Murdick, and Rex King, Jr. There was no B Main. All twenty-seven cars would have started, but there were two scratches.
In the Penn Ohio Pro Stocks vs. the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, Bobby Whitling won the dash, but his preferred stating position was determined by the luck of the draw. Beside him was Dylan Cecce, winner of the King of the Hill race. In the second row, Chris Schneider was aligned with Tyler Wyant. Chase Lambert rolled away in row three with Doug Iorio, II as his partner. Timmy Bish and Josh Seippel were in row four. The fifth row had Jason Johns next to Hunter Exley. The sixth row was Jackson Humanic and Jason Fosnaught.
Whitling took the early lead in the thirty lapper for the Pro Stocks. Cecce, Schneider, Wyant, and Tim Bish ran in the top five in the early going. It did not take long for Schneider to reach second, and soon thereafter he was pressing Whitling for the lead.
Schneider was perfectly positioned to take the lead coming off turn four just as the caution came pout with four laps complete.
Five laps later, Schneider made the pass coming off turn two. Whitling remained in second until he broke just after taking the halfway signal.
On the ensuing restart, Jackson Humanic took second away from Tim Bish. Within a few laps, Exley was moving up to challenge, but he also fell out of the contest before making his presence felt.
There was some chaos on the restart with six laps remaining. Several contenders were eliminated.
When the race got going again, Schneider made the final rounds without incident. The checkers came at just the right time for him, as his right rear tire went flat in victory lane. “That was a $19,000 tire,” Schneider said. He won the $10,000 race and the Laboon Memorial on that same tire!
Schneider’s trip to victory lane was helped along by the generosity of some fellow competitors. He discovered a leaking power steering line and replaced it with one furnished by Rod Laskey. When he went to stage for the feature, though, Schneider discovered that the replacement was also leaking. Fosnaught desperately searched for another replacement, finding one in the pit of Brandon Connor. The crew thrashed and got it installed in time for Schneider to retain his starting position. The rest, they say, is history.
Humanic finished second, followed by Pat Fielding, Curtis J. Bish (who started twenty-third), and Fosnaught. Chris McGuire, Jason Johns, Chris Withers, Cecce, and Tim Bish completed the top ten.
The Penn Ohio Pro Stock Series and Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks presented a memorial dash to open their portion of the program The eligible drivers were racers who benefitted from the support of Ray Virgile during his lifetime. Ray was a major supporter of teh Pro Stock Class in Western PA and Tri-City Raceway Park was one of his favorite venues. The winner was Bobby Whitling.
Chad Ruhlman and Jarod Larson brought the RUSH Sprint Cars to the green flag, presented by Allegheny Tool & Supply. Blaze Myers and Gale Ruth, Jr. occupied row two. Arnie Kent and Brian Hartzell made up row three. The fourth row belonged to John Mollick, and Rick Tucker, Jr. Behind them were Zack Wilson and Andy Priest. Running from row six were Bill Cunningham and Brian Cressley.
Ruhlman took the early lead, followed by Myers. Myers came off turn two like he was shot from a cannon to grab the lead on the second circuit.
Myers built up a full straightaway lead while Ruhlman, Kent, and Hartzel swapped the second spot. A caution brought Myers back to them but he got away from them as soon as racing resumed.
Myers took the checkers way out in front. Ruhlman recovered for second. Ahead of Kent, Hartzell, and Ruth. Positions six through ten went to Mollick, Wilson, Tucker, Cressley, and Bill Cunningham.
In the RUSH Sprint Cars, presented by Allegheny Tool & Supply, two heats were conducted. The checkers were shown to Gale Ruth, Jr., and John Mollick. There was no B Main.
The 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks were the nightcap. Defending title holder, Justin Bailey had the good fortune of getting the lowest pill in the bag. Next to him was Dillon Thorne. Chad Greeley had the inside of row three, along with Kyle Janas. Paired up in row four were Matt Miller and D.J. Macrae. Row five had Tyler Ellenberger and Dalton Speer. The sixth row matched Mike Barr and Jason Swartz. Last on the grid was three-time winner, Levi Maskal.
With Bodey McClintock leading the way, Maskal was making his way front. He reached before the first caution was displayed. Soon he was into the top five. By lap seven, he was in the lead.
Maskal went on to score the win. Greeley came on in the final laps to earn second. Urey was third. Bodey McClintock hung on for fourth, ahead of Macrae.
Thorne crossed in sixth, with Bailey, Trevn Schaffer, Ellenberger, and Thomas Warren following.
The 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks offered three heats. Matt Urey, Dillon Thorne, and Levi Maskal claimed the victories. There was no B Main.
Next week at Tri-City Raceway Park, there will be a Sunday Thunder program, consisting of the track’s four regular classes. The twist will be that double points will be awarded in each division. The Shawgo Real Estate 410 Sprint Cars will top the menu, with the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds as the second course.

Dussel gives dad a FAST win; Westfall earns Hewitt Classic at Waynesfield

Monday, July 4, 2022

By Brian Liskai

WAYNESFIELD, OHIO – Nate Dussel gave his dad a great birthday present Sunday, July 3. Dussel led the final 10 laps of the 4th Annual Bob Hampshire Classic at Waynesfield Raceway Park to score his fourth win of the year with the Ti22 Performance FAST On Dirt series.

Dussel, who sits atop the FAST point standings, said his brothers, his crew, Jason Fausey and everyone associated with the #1 machine have given him the best car he has ever driven.

“This thing is just unbelievable. I’m just the lucky guy that gets to drive it. We were fast here for speedweek. We ran 13th but I felt we had a top five car and that’s saying something against the All Stars,” said Dussel beside his Northwest Installation/Industrial Movers, S&S Hauling and Excavating, JRC Transportation, Berrier Custom Fabrication, Teamsters Local 20, NuFarm, Real Geese, Al Davis, A Plus Auto, Box 7, Speedways Bar, Wonderly Carpet Care, Wurtec, Design Graphics Group, Kistler Racing Products, Kistler Engines, Berryman Racing Shocks backed #1.

Pleasant Hill, Ohio’s Matt Westfall hasn’t won the Jack Hewitt Classic at Waynesfield since 2009. He put on a driving clinic Sunday at Waynesfield, taking the lead on lap 10 and surviving several late race cautions and near catastrophe with five laps to go to score the $4,000 payday for the 13th Annual Jack Hewitt Classic with the MPD Racing Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS).

In the 30 lap FAST feature, Trey Jacobs grabbed the early lead over Dussel, Skylar Gee and Cole Macedo. Following a race stoppage for a crash on lap four, Dussel quickly applied pressure to Jacobs for the lead but a bobble on lap 10 allowed Macedo to take second.

Heavy lapped traffic came into play by lap 15 and that allowed Macedo and Dussel to challenge Jacobs for the lead. Dussel drove into second on lap 19 and took the lead a lap later. Dussel made some daring moves in traffic and was challenged a few laps by Macedo. But, the Bradner, Ohio driver drove to the win over Macedo, a charging Greg Wilson, Cole Duncan and Gee.

In the 30-lap BOSS feature Steve Irwin grabbed the early lead over Landon Simon, Michael Fischesser, Isaac Chapple, and Westfall. Westfall moved into third by lap three and charged into second on lap seven. Westfall made his winning move on lap 10.

Three cautions and a red in the last half of the race kept the field close. Westfall nearly dumped his Ray Marshall Racing mount on lap 25, hitting the big berm with the car getting air born. He gathered it back in and drove the Buckeye Machine, DPI Ink, Hempy Water, All Star Performance #33M to the win over Chapple, Keith Sheffer, Kody Swanson and Irwin.

“Missouri One Call” Sprint Car Special at Double X Checkers to Taylor Walton

California, MO

July 3, 2022

By: Dean Reichel

For Immediate Release—

Sunday Night Thunder on “Missouri One Call Night” at Double X Speedway Sunday night was not due to fireworks, but excitement of the horsepower type. With multiple places to attend over the Independence Day weekend, a small, but competitive field of racers made the trip to the California, MO speed plant to entertain the fans on hand. With $2000 to win for the victor in the Winged Sprint Car Division it was anybody’s guess who would claim the payout offered. Fans in the stands were waiting to see if Jack Wagner would make it three feature wins in a row, or would Tyler Blank, fresh off a top ten finish at Eldora Speedway last weekend make it back to victory lane? Would Taylor Walton be able to turn around his misfortune from last weekend and claim the prize or would Broc Elliott finally make the visit to victory lane? We would have to wait until the final race of the night to see what the final outcome would be.

With Pure Stock racers being spread between several tracks running the class on Sunday, four faithful competitors made the trip to Double X. In the heat race it was Shayne Healea claiming victory over Darin Porter in second, Russell Beach in third and Shannon Sullivan in fourth.

The Super Stocks took to the clay for a pair of heat races. Heat one saw Payton McDowell lead the first three laps before Joe Miller put the 409 to the point passing on the top down the back stretch. Miller would cruise along until the white flag when John Clancy would make a strong bid but Miller had the momentum on the top groove and would hold off Clancy to take the win. Clancy was a close second, Payton McDowell finished third and Eddie Keeran completed the field. Heat race two saw point leader Jody Romig take the win over Brandon Dunham in second, Tyler Crocker in third and Dusty See in fourth.

The final set of heat races were contested by the Winged Sprint Cars, the featured division on “Missouri One Call Night”. Tyler Blank started on the pole and took the lead at the drop of the green leaving the rest of the field to give chase. Eight laps later as the checkered flag fell Blank was still leading with Samuel Wagner in second, Tyler Elliott in third, Mackenzie Borchers in fourth and Russell Potter in fifth. In heat two right after the field took the green the race was halted for the car of Blake Bowers who took an easy roll off of turn two. The driver climbed from the car and was okay. On the restart Taylor Walton took the lead, Ben Brown slid off the top of turn one and Jack Wagner trying to avoid slid off the top also and rolled easily. Both drivers involved were okay. Hopefully the third time would be a charm on starting this race. On the third attempt Walton took the point with Jake Griffin in tow. The lead duo would line themselves out with Ben Brown, damaged nose and top wings both in third.

After a brief intermission it was time to go main event racing. The four that started the evening were joined by three more cars from a nearby track that suffered a rain event. The three tagged the rear of the feature line up. After a caution on the initial start Shayne Healea would take the early lead. Porter would be persistent and as Healea left the door open coming out of turn four Porter motored by to take the lead. Porter would open up a six car length advantage over Healea and Bradley McDowell in third until a lap eight caution would erase the lead. On the restart Porter would continue to hold the point with Healea in second. At the checkered it was Porter, with Healea in second, Justin McDowell in third, Preston McDowell in fourth and Russell Beach completing the top five. Rounding out the field were Bradley McDowell and Shannon Sullivan.

The Super Stock feature had the top two in division points on the front row. Joe Miller on the pole and point leader Jody Romig on the outside. Jody Romig took the lead in turn one and had his #12 machine handling well. Behind the leader Brandon Dunhm moved into the number two spot with Joe Miller and John Clancy close behind. Tyler Crocker rode in the number five spot. A caution as the field completed lap five would line the field up single file behind the leader Romig. Brandon Dunham would make short work passing the leader in turn two on the restart. John Clancy would drive into the second spot on the same lap. The remainder of the fifteen lap event saw the running order continue with Dunham picking up the win in the Hays Motorsports number 54. John Clancy finished a strong second with a late race charge, Joe Miller took third on the last lap, Jody Romig finished fourth and Tyler Crovker rounded out the top five. Completing the field were Dusty See in sixth, Eddie Keeran in seventh and Payton McDowell in eighth.

With $2000 to the winner in the Winged Sprint Cars it could be anyone’s race to win. Tyler Blank and Taylor Walton would bring the field to the green. Blank would take the lead in turn one but would slide high into the cushion in two allowing Walton to drive underneath and into the top spot. A caution for the stalled car of Tyler Elliott at the completion of lap three would bunch the field but only one lap was completed before a second caution slowed the pace again. On this restart Walton would continue to lead with Blank giving chase and Jake Griffin in third. A lap eight caution for Mackenzie Borchers brought the field single file behind the leader. Blank quickly made a power move into the lead in turn one and it was Walton giving chase. Contact between the leader Blank and the lapped car of Mackenzie Borchers led to Blank suffering a flat tire and both cars having to retire to the pit area. Taylor Walton inherited the lead and made the most of this opportunity claiming the victory. Jake Griffin drove a strong race to claim second, Samuel Wagner finished a well earned third, with Ben Brown finishing fourth and Russell Potter coming home in the fifth spot. Tyler Blank was credited with sixth, Mackenzie Borchers seventh, Tyler Elliott eighth. With the final checkered flag dropping at 10:05PM everyone could enjoy the remainder of the holiday weekend with family and friends.

Next Sunday night is the annual “Race for Riley”, Riley Hudson Memorial Race with a lot of special items for the kids. Over 50 bikes have been donated so far to be given away along with many other prizes. If you would like to donate a bike, reach out to Carol Wirts, or bring it with you next Sunday and get it to Tara, Leslie or the family and friends at the track. Four more weeks remain in the 2022 season at Double X Speedway. July 17 in Sonic night at the races, July 24 is the “Racing Back to School” night with school supply giveaways and July 31 is the Championship night.

Luke Verardi Captures First Ever Sprint Car Win in Vinton with Sprint Invaders!

(Bill W) Davenport, IA, July 3, 2022 – Luke Verardi of Taylorville, Illinois picked up his first ever sprint car victory Sunday night on the Benton County Speedway bullring in Vinton, Iowa. The Sprint Invaders tally was worth $2,000 for the driver of the Verardi Bros. Racing #28.

Verardi got the jump from the pole in the 25-lap main event. Devin Wignall, Paul Nienhiser and Chris Martin were in chase. Wignall used the cushion in turn four to take the lead on lap two, while Martin snagged third from Nienhiser.

Wignall led the charge on the cushion, while Verardi stayed within striking distance. On lap nine, Verardi made a move low in turn two to take back the point. Shortly after, Chase Richards spun in turn two to bring the only caution of the event.

Verardi led Wignall, Martin, Nienhiser and Riley Goodno back to green flag racing. Rubber was developing on the ¼-mile at that point, making passing hard in the late going. Nienhiser worked his way by Martin for third on lap 19 and then passed Wignall low in turn two for second coming for the white flag.

Verardi was cruising up front and raced to the checkers ahead of Nienhiser, Wignall, Martin and Chase Randall. Cody Wehrle, hard-charger Bret Tripplett, Goodno, Colton Fisher and JJ Hickle rounded out the top ten. Nienhiser, Martin and Goodno were heat winners, while Martin also claimed the Dash. Aidan Zoutte took a hard tumble in hot laps, destroying his car. He was uninjured, but done for the night.

“This is actually my first sprint car win,” said an excited Verardi in Victory Lane. “This is my second year racing sprint cars. We started out in micro-sprints and quarter midgets starting out at five years old. This is a dream come true! To all you kids out there, hold onto your dreams, and just keep chugging. I was pretty committed to the bottom at first, and then saw (Wignall) get around me on top. I figured I ought to give it a try up there and it stuck. It just kept getting better and better, and obviously, rubber came into play at the end. I couldn’t ask for a better car.”

“It took rubber a little sooner than anticipated,” said Nienhiser. “It seemed like I was maybe able to save my tires a little better than the guys in front of me sliding around a little bit. There at the end, you could see we had some drive off. We were able to slip underneath (Martin) and (Wignall).”

“I felt pretty comfortable out front in clean air, and I started catching the back of the field,” said Wignall. “I started searching around, and got caught through the middle right before that caution. I used up my tires after that and had nothing for the leader. This is only the fifth time I’ve run a 360. Two consecutive dashes and finishing on the podium tonight…I can’t complain.”

The Sprint Invaders next action will be Thursday, July 14 at the Bloomfield Speedway in Bloomfield, Iowa as part of the festivities surrounding the Davis County Fair. For more information on the Sprint Invaders, visit www.SprintInvaders.org or look us up on Facebook.

Corey Day scores first career SCCT victory at the Stockton Dirt Track on Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Stockton, CA…Clovis youngster Corey Day lost the lead a couple of times on Saturday at the Stockton Dirt Track but continued to show the relentless tenacity that we’ve grown accustomed to this season, by making a few bold moves in traffic to bring home his initial SCCT victory.

In clean air the 16-year-old was turning laps down near the track record, but with the lightning-fast surface it made for tight racing once lapped traffic came into play. Day was able to fend off all challengers to accept the checkered flag aboard his Four C’s Construction/ Elite Landscape Construction No. 41 entry. He becomes the 26th different driver to win a Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards feature.

“It’s been a while since we’ve gotten this family car into victory lane so I could not be happier right now,” Day commented to infield announcer PJ Petersen. “The track was hooked up all night and that made it difficult with the lapped cars. You almost had to catch them at the right time and hope you make the right move. I want to thank my parents and everyone that supports our race team. It feels great to get our first SCCT win tonight in Stockton.”

Day set the pace early in the feature after winning the High Sierra Industries Dash, but got high entering traffic on lap 10, which allowed Justyn Cox the chance to slice his way into the lead. At that same time Cox was dealing with a collapsed nose wing while navigating his way through hectic lapped traffic. Day stayed right there with him and snatched the lead right back with 13-laps complete. Justin Sanders also moved to the inside for second, as Cox retired to the pit area shortly after.

With Day now locked in around the slower cars Sanders charged right up to his rear, before making a bold move to the inside in turn one. Sanders came out with the lead and one lapped car between the pair momentarily. Once again Day did not panic and remained glued to the Dale Miller Septic No. 4sa as the pair put on a solid show over the next few circuits. With lapped cars continuing to be in play the duo went side by side down the front stretch with eight laps left. This time Day rocketed around the outside with a gorgeous move to retake the lead.

The immensely talented youngster led the remainder of the way for the $2,500 triumph over Sanders, who has earned five podium finishes in six SCCT starts this year, Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick, Hanford’s Michael Faccinto and Fremont’s Shane Golobic. Rounding out the top-10 were Tony Gomes, 14th starter Tim Kaeding, Blake Carrick, 19th starter Ryan Robinson and Steven Kent. Brian McGahan Jr. carved his way from 24th to 12th earning the Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Award.

Tanner Carrick began the evening by claiming the Bianchi Farms Fast Time Award in the 31-car field. The 20-year-old toured the blazing fast speedway in 14.200 seconds.

The Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards returns to action on Saturday July 30th at the Petaluma Speedway.

Wayne County Speedway

ORRVILLE – As the late, great Yogi Berra once said; ‘It was like Déjà vu all over again’ Saturday night at the O’Reilly Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway.

Justin Cranmore took advantage of last-lap mechanical woes from the machine of Doug Hensel for the second consecutive week in claiming the JoyRide Mini Stock $500-to-win Sean McConathey Memorial in highlighting Independence Day Holiday weekend action at “Orrville’s Historic Oval”.

Lemoore, California driver Cole Macedo continued a familiar theme this season at WCS as well by becoming the eighth winner in as many tries by claiming the $3,500-to-win Pine Tree Towing and Recovery King of the County Sprint Car main event, with Mansfield’s Dave Hornikel making it six-for-six without a repeat winner with his first career triumph at WCS in the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Models. DJ Cline captured the Elite Ammunition Modified feature while Kyle Moore continued his domination of the 3-8-mile clay oval with another trip to victory lane in the McKenzie Concrete Super Stocks.

Cranmore and Hensel started the evening by being the only drivers to win a Mini Stock main this season at WCS, with Cranmore’s good fortune landing him victory lane for the third time in 2022.

Hensel, searching for win eight on the season and fifth at WCS, looked primed to reach that goal by powering to the lead on lap two with Billy Parsons, Dustin Bedlion, and Cranmore in pursuit. Cranmore worked his No. 2 machine into the runner-up spot by lap eight but trailed Hensel by a straightaway with a pair of laps left during the 15-lap special event.

Hensel, who cut a right front tire after taking the white flag while leading a week ago, slowed down the backstretch on the final circuit. Cranmore edged Hensel by a bumper at the stripe with Parsons, Bedlion, and Kenny Long rounding out the top five with his best finish of the season.

“We have some bad-fast cars in this division, but (Doug) was gone tonight,” said Cranmore. “I hate to win races with Doug having mechanical issues, though. We are fast right now, but l want to beat him when he is one hundred percent.” Members of the McConathey family presented Cranmore with a beautiful trophy in WCS victory lane.

Macedo and his Brooks Racing 18 were prohibited favorites entering the King of the County event, and the fourth-generation pilot made good on the prediction by leading all 25 laps from the pole position.

Macedo built an early lead, with Jordan Ryan, and 2022 winners Tyler Street and Cody Bova in hot pursuit. Ryan, though, was relentless in his chase of Macedo and closed to within a few car lengths on two separate occasions during the closing laps but settled for second ahead of Street, Bova, ninth-starting Trey Jacobs, Andrew Palker, 13th-starting Danny Mumaw, Chris Myers, Leyton Wagner, and Stuart Brubaker aboard the Pete Grove-owned 70.

“The Linder’s (Mike and Matt) have our car really nice right now, and we appreciate all the extra help we got tonight, too,” said Macedo, who was making his first WCS start since getting upside down during the June Speedweek event. “The track was fast up on the fence, but it got a little dirty and hard to see in traffic. I saw Jordan (Ryan) stick his nose in there a few times so l knew we had to hit our marks the last five or ten laps.”

The Late Models hit the track next, and once again the action was furious from start to finish. Mitch Caskey jumped into the early lead with last week’s winner JR Gentry in tow. Hornikel, Eric Wilson, Ryan Markham, Larry Bellman, and Nick Cox all stayed within striking distance until lap 10 when Gentry and Caskey collided in turn 4 that spun both to a stop. While Caskey reassumed the lead, Gentry tagged the tail which enabled Hornikel and Markham to make it a three-car battle behind Caskey’s now battered and bruised Malcuit 79.

A lap 23 yellow bunched the field one final time, as Hornikel made a brilliant move under Caskey on the restart to grab the point. Markham challenged Hornikel’s Phillips Motorsports 71 to the stripe with Wilson third, Caskey fourth, and Gentry fifth.

“I’ve been battling back problems here lately, but it sure feels good to finally get a win here,” said Hornikel. “We have led here, ran second, but could never get a win. It takes so much money and effort to do this, and l can’t the fans enough for coming out to support this race track. We will be back for sure.”

DJ Cline has been racing at WCS for parts of four decades but could not recall his last trip to victory lane. Cline grabbed the lead on lap eight from Mark Gardiner and held off the charges from Colton Shaw, Tristen Bickford, Ron Miller, and TA Perrine for his WCS victory of the season.

“There was a really strong field of cars here tonight, and we hung on there at the end,” said Cline. “The track was just fast enough, but also to where you had to take care of your tires, too. I Cannot remember the last time l won here, but it has been a while ago.”

Moore continued his season-long domination of WCS by putting the Bob Daugherty 21D into victory lane yet again. Moore’s 15th overall win of 2022 came of ahead of Braden Tucke, who continues to knock on victory lane’s door with another solid finish. Rob Melzer, opening night winner Brandon Morrow , and Brandon Craver.

WCS will be back in action July 9 with a Fast Five Series event with the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association joining the sprint cars, with the much-anticipated DirtCar Summer Nationals invading the speedway on Sunday July 17.

Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints

Fulton, New York,

Wantage, New Jersey wheelman Davie Franek saved his best for the last night of the ESS / CNY Speedweek. His dominating victory at Fulton on Saturday night earned him the $2,500 top prize and propelled him to the 2022 Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints / CNY Speedweek Championship.

" This is unbelievable " Franek stated in victory lane. " We have been chasing this thing for three or four years now and finally we got it ". " I can't thank my guys enough, they work so hard on the cars, I gotta thank my sponsors and everyone who supports us, we couldn't do it without them ".

Starting seventh on the grid, Franek used the high side of the Fulton high banks to get around early race leader Shawn Donath on lap ten and cruised to his first ESS victory of the year. Donath was strong all night finishing second with Quebec's Jordan Poirier finishing third.

Donath and outside pole sitter Matt Tanner lead the 25 car field to the green flag with Donath surging into the lead followed closely by Tanner, Poirier, Jeff Cook and Matt Billings. On lap four, Franek slipped by Cook for fourth and used the cushion to move around Tanner and Poirier by lap six. By lap ten, Franek had closed the gap between himself and Donath and slipped underneath Donath as they entered turn one. On the same lap, defending Speedweek Champion Jason Barney moved into the top five as well. Franek stretched his lead to 10 car lengths as his car was flawless up top on the cushion. At the halfway point of the race, Franek led Donath and Poirier with Barney and Dylan Swiernik now rounding out the top five. Franek continued to maintain his lead through the remainder of the race using the high side to get around slower traffic enroute to the win. The rest of the top five was Donath, Poirier, Swiernik, who slipped under Barney late in the race to grab fourth and Barney. Danny Varin finished sixth, followed by Matt Tanner, Kelly Hebing, Jonathan Preston and Paulie Colagiovanni.

Fast Times went to Franek, Chuck Hebing and Matt Tanner while Franek, Tanner and Larry Wight claimed heat race wins. The B Main was won by Jonathan Preston and Joe Trenca visited victory lane after winning the Cobra Coaches / Walt's Hobby Town Dash .

Speedweek Notes :
- Sammy Reakes endured qualifying struggles for all four races but he was the Hard Charger for three of those four races, finishing tenth overall in Speedweek points.
- Franek used consistent finishes of fourth, second, sixth and first to claim this year's Speedweek title.
- Jordan Poirier, Matt Tanner and Shawn Donath were separated by one point in the final point standings with Poirier and Tanner tied for second.

Herrick Is Heroic On “The Mountain” & Looks For Fourth In A Row

Press Release by Steven Ovens – July 3rd, 2022

(SODUS, NY) – There are just some drivers that take a liking to certain tracks. When you go to Fonda, you know Jeff Trombley is going to be the one to beat. When you go to Land of Legends Raceway- Darryl Ruggles has the target on his back.

But when it comes to Thunder Mountain Speedway it has been McDonough, NY driver Dalton Herrick who has the hot hand. Coming into the July 4th Weekend special at Thunder, Herrick is on a streak of three CRSA Sprints wins in a row. Herrick took the checkered flag in 2018, 2019 and last Fall in September of 2021.

What has been the key to Herrick’s success at Thunder Mountain?

“I guess a lot of it honestly is that local track luck,” said Herrick earlier this weekend.

“I’ve been there since the place opened, be it in the stands or driving my sprint car.”

Maybe it was watching some of Thunder Mountain’s best wheel around the tricky three-eighths-mile over in Center Lisle, NY. Could it be something about the shape and configuration that just seems to suit Herrick’s style?

“Thunder Mountain has a lot of banking and it usually has a lot of bite. Put those too together and there is usually a bit of cushion to lean on, which gives me the opportunity to hammer down nonstop around that place.”

Herrick used that outside lane to sweep around Trombley to take the lead and eventually the win on September 12. When Herrick made the pass in Turn 4 there was just enough room for the wall, Trombley, Herrick and maybe a sheet of inkjet printer paper.

The driver of the Kiser Sand and Gravel, Old Iron Automotive, Kennedy’s Towing No. 29 has four career CRSA Sprints wins to his credit. All four of them have come at Thunder Mountain. How can he get his fourth in a row and fifth CRSA win overall on Sunday night?

“Our plan is to bring the same setup we use every year here and hope that either nobody else has caught on or caught up to us.”

With the way Herrick has started the 2022 season, Thunder Mountain could present a big opportunity to launch the 29 team into the Summer stretch of tour races. Herrick has yet to score a victory but is tied for the series lead in Top 5’s with three and hasn’t finished outside the Top 10 at any of the previous five races. He also trails point leader Jordan Hutton by only 20 points.

We asked Herrick what has been the key to their consistency to start 2022?

“A lot of luck is honestly the answer. We do put a lot of hours in during the week making sure everything is in top order. I also talk to a lot of people that are way smarter at this stuff than I am.”

Herrick may be humble but as the saying goes, “the numbers don’t lie.” Keep a close eye on the 29 car today at Thunder Mountain Speedway.

Fans not able to join at the track are encouraged to tune in on Dirt Track Digest’s live video stream by logging on to dirttrackdigest.tv for the low price of $26.99.

A driver’s meeting will take place at 5:30PM with Heat in Engines and Hot Laps rolling off at 5:55PM and 6:00PM. Race time is 6:30PM.

The CRSA 305 Sprints are powered by Super Gen Products with their Champion Power Equipment located in Newark, NY.

LIGUORI HUSTLES ROCKFORD MUST SEE WIN

July 2, 2022 – Loves Park, Illinois – Before Saturday night, Joe Liguori had never raced at Rockford Speedway. By the end of the night, it looked like he had visited the track on multiple occasions.

Must See Racing Sprint Series Presented by Engine Pro made its first appearance at Rockford Speedway since 2018. Jimmy McCune won that event nearly four years ago on a last lap pass of Charlie Schultz.

Liguori was the night’s fastest qualifier when he ripped off a 11.732 second lap around the high-banked quarter mile despite it being his first time at the track.

A 7 was the number drawn for the feature inversion. At the drop of the green, veteran Tom Jewell got the jump on outside front row starter Adam Blitz. Jewell would lead the first four circuits before surrendering the lead to Jacob Dolinar. On lap thirteen, Dolinar and Schultz would make contact exiting turn two while battling for the lead. Unfortunately, Dolinar would come to a stop and have to restart at the tail.

When the green flag waved again, Jimmy McCune became the new race leader before Liguori took command a lap later. Liguori would survive a couple of double-file restart that saw Schultz and Jimmy McCune lined up next to Liguori. Liguori would get the jump both times to remain in control.
McCune and Schultz would make heavy contact coming to the checkered. McCune still managed a second-place finish and Schultz a third-place finish despite damage to both cars.

In victory lane Liguori explained he used lap traffic to his advantage to go from seventh into the lead in only fourteen laps. “I knew lapped traffic was gonna be really big” explained Liguori. “This track has two lanes, I changed my line but their just really narrow. You just gotta be methodical. I played with my wing a little bit. We were tight at one point. I got free and put the wing where the car felt neutral. I changed my line and did what I had to do to be fast. Once you get into clean air you can control the race” concluded Liguori.

The Must See Racing Sprint Series Presented by Engine Pro will now be idle until July 22, when the series invades Birch Run Speedway in Birch Run, Michigan.

Feature (50 laps): 1. Joe Liguori 13, 2. Jimmy McCune 88, 3. Charlie Schultz 9s, 4. Adam Biltz 8a, 5. Rick Holley 85, 6. Tom Jewwll 7, 7. Tom Geren 11g, 8. Tim Henthorne 15, 9. Jacob Dolinar 48, 10. Joshua Sexton 3k, 11. Jeff Bloom 26, DNS Joe Speakman 72

 

 

Success for Spithaler at Tri-City Raceway Park;
Shingledecker, Maskal, Warburton, Cecce also Win

(Franklin, PA July 2, 2022): Brandon Spithaler was back in his own Shawgo Real Estate, LLC 410 Sprint Car due to an opening in the schedule for his touring series. He took maximum advantage, dominating the thirty lap feature and collecting $3,000 in the process.
Also getting wins on Saturday of the July 4 holiday weekend were Jeremiah Shingledecker (Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds), Levi Maskal (4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks), Thomas Warburton (PA Thunder on the Dirt Vintage Modifieds), and Dylan Cecce (Penn Ohio Pro Stocks/Hovis Auto & Truck Supply King of the Hill).
“It’s been a while since I’ve been here and we’re one for one,” Spithaler exclaimed. He was able to find grip where his competitors could not. “Riding around in fifth I was concerned. I was riding around and I found a way to get around better than the other guys and it worked. I was running high, and then I started to come down off four.”
Jeremy Weaver started on the pole for the twenty-five lapper, with defending champion, Brandon Matus, by his side. Carl Bowser and Spithaler were in row two, with Jack Sodeman, Jr. and Bob Felmlee in row three. Chase Metheney and Steve Bright were in row five. Randy Wyant, Matt Sherlock, and Brent Matus completed the field.
Weaver sailed off with the early lead, chased by Brandon Matus, Bowser, Sodeman, and Spithaler. Spitahler came to life as the race neared the midpoint, picking off Bowser, Sodeman, and Matus on successive laps.
Coming through turn four to complete lap fourteen, Weaver got out too far, leaving the door open for Spithaler. Matus tried to get through, too, but he could not make the pass. As Spithaler drew away from them, Weaver and Matus put forth a good battle for second.
Spithaler crossed the line in first, with Weaver second for what was his best career 410 Sprint Car finish. Brandon Matus, Bowser, and Sodeman completed the top five.
Metheney worked past Felmlee for sixth, followed by Brent Matus, Sherlock, Bright, and Wyant.
Two heat races were run for the Shawgo Real Estate, LLC 410 Sprint Cars. Taking top honors were Jack Sodeman, Jr. and Brandon Matus. There was no B Main.
It was a sibling rivalry at the start of the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modified race, as Travis and Jeremiah Shingledecker shared the front row, and Lonnie Riggs and Jeff Schaffer were in row two. Tom Holden and Greg Martin, both making their first Tr-City starts this season, departed from row three. Andy Jankowiak and Don Cornelius were in row four, and Jeremy Beichner was the caboose on this train.
The brothers Shingledecker put on a spirited duel for the first several laps before Jeremiah seized control. Travis continued along in second for several more laps before giving way to Martin.
Jeremiah had a commanding lead wiped out by a caution with eleven laps complete. He took the outside line for the restart and he had second thoughts about it. “I thought I picked the wrong line for the restart. It was a little bumpy up there, and he had a good run on me, and that made it harder.”
Harder, indeed. Jeremiah and Martin went toe to toe for several laps before Jeremiah found some grip about half a groove down from where he had been running. He began to pull away from Martin and had a sizable lead at the checkers.
Following Jeremiah Shingledecker and Martin were Lonny Riggs, Jeff Schaffer, and Don Cornelius. Jankowiak, Travis Shingledecker, Beichner, and Holden completed the field.

Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints

By MIKE MALLETT

BREWERTON, NY – It might have been his first start of the year, but on Friday night it looked like Larry Wight had been in the seat of a Sprint Car all season long.

Wight dominated the 25-lap Don Gillette Memorial Central New York Speedweek A-Main at the Brewerton Speedway. It was his third consecutive win at track in Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint competition and it paid him $2,500.

“It’s been about a year since we’ve been in the car and everything fired off really good,” said Wight. “I had Anthony Knighten working on the car tonight. He’s my Sprint Car guru we call him because he knows all about these things. I really don’t get to mess around enough with them to know what changes to make. It’s kind of we throw something at it and see it if works. I let him do his thing and it was on point. I couldn’t really ask for much more than that.”

Wight started alongside Matt Tanner to start the feature on the outside of the front row. He immediately went to the top of turns one and two to take the lead on the opening lap. He remained on the high-side of the speedway during early go before the caution came out on lap four. Shawn Donath got the jump on Wight on the restart taking the lead as the field darted into turn one. He kept Wight behind him for a handful of laps before Wight used a slide job on lap 10 to regain the first position in turns one and two.

“We were fast enough to get back by him,” commented Wight about the pass. “The rest of the race we were able to keep everyone behind us.”

Two laps later Wight was in traffic while action behind him picked up for third. Donath remained second while Jason Barney and Danny Varin wrestled for the third spot. Varin got by Barney on lap 15 to take the position.

Varin then closed in rapidly on second place running Donath as he raced in traffic. Varin attempted to go three-wide in traffic with Donath and the slower car of Brett Wright. Contact was made that caused Varin and Wright to come together. Wright ended up sitting on top of Varin’s hood to bring out the yellow on lap 16. Both drivers continued.

Wight was true to form on the restart keeping everyone else behind him when action resumed. He again stretched his lead as the laps clicked off. As Wight maintained the lead, Dylan Swiernik began making tracks forward. Swiernik found his way by Barney on the bottom first before driving by Donath on lap 20 to get to second.

When the checkered flag fell it was Wight picking up the victory by over three seconds. Swiernik, who has had a tough start to CNY Speedweek, finished in the runner-up position which is his best run of the week. Swiernik powered his way forward by pedaling the car slowly around the bottom.

“We needed this run tonight,” stated Swiernik. “Playing around down on the bottom around the tractor tires is usually not my cup of tea. I’m usually up around the fence. You go to do what you got to do. We have a great handling Panther Frameworx chassis right now. I just want to ride this momentum.”

Barney ended the night in the third position. Barney admitted he didn’t make the right changes to his No. 87 for the slippery racing surface on the night.

“I’m happy to be here,” stated Barney. “I’m happy with third. We missed it a little bit which was completely my fault. We over tightened the car the last two nights, that was my fault too, and we didn’t want to do that tonight and we probably should have. That’s racing. You throw darts at it sometimes.”

Jordan Poirier drove from 11th to the fourth spot with Donath falling back at the end of the feature to complete the top five.

Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints

Center Lisle, New York,

The Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints traveled to Thunder Mountain Speedway for night number two of the ESS / CNY Speedweek with Paulie Colagiovanni taking the 25 lap A Main. The Cicero, New York driver held off late race challenges from Davie Franek and Joe Trenca to win his second Empire Super Sprints show this year ( May 28th at Fulton ) and collected the $2,500 check in doing so.

Pole sitter Tyler Cartier and Joe Trenca brought the field down to the green flag with Trenca jumping out to the lead heading into turn one. Jordan Poirier and Paulie Colagiovanni benefited from great starts and quickly moved into second and third. While the top three put some distance between them and the rest of the field, Brett Wright, Matt Tanner, Jason Barney, Danny Varin, Shawn Donath and Kelly Hebing were waging war as they attempted to work their way to the front. As the leaders approached lap traffic, Davie Franek used the opportunity to slip under Trenca on lap 11 to take the lead. Using the same lapped traffic, Paulie Colagiovanni slipped under Franek on lap 13 to take command. Colagiovanni could run high and low, cutting through the lapped traffic better than anyone else and with no cautions to bring the field together, cruised to victory. Davie Franek crossed the line second with Joe Trenca closely behind. A great run for Brett Wright to finish fourth and Matt Tanner rounded out the top five. Six through ten were Jason Barney, Danny Varin, Shawn Donath, Kelly Hebing and Sammy Reakes, who claimed the hard charger award for the second straight race.

After the win, Colagiovanni had this to say about the night, "The car was really good wherever I put it but really good down low, I could pick off lapped traffic low out of the turns. This was the second race of the year for this chassis, it wasn't great at Utica Rome earlier in the year but the changes we made to it tonight worked. ". Colagiovanni takes a 14 point CNY Speedweek lead heading into Friday night's race at Brewerton and moved into third place in the overall Championship Tour points.

For Franek, he was happy with the night overall, " The car was pretty good all night. We were better at the beginning of the A Main than we were at the end, that was the difference tonight". Franek moved into fifth place in Speedweek and Championship Tour points after tonight's results.

Fast times were set by Jordan Poirier, Shawn Donath and Matt Tanner with Poirier, Donath and Colagiovanni capturing the heat races. Jeff Cook won the Dirt Track Digest / Cobra Coaches Dash.

BROWN TAKES FIRST KNIGHTS OF THUNDER WIN

By Tommy Goudge

PORT COLBORNE, Ont. (June 30, 2022) – Mitch Brown earned his first sword on Thursday night at Humberstone Speedway, withstanding pressure from several challengers to take his first Pinty's Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car A-Main win.

Mitch Brown and Brayden Cooley were on the front row for the 25 lap A-Main, and Brown took the early lead while Mack DeMan and Mikey Kruchka jockeyed for the third spot. DeMan was strong on the high side, especially in turns three and four, and drove around Cooley to take the second position on lap four. Cooley then tried the upper lane, but Kruchka drove around him on the inside to take third.

Brown lived up to his "Downtown" nickname, methodically running the low side lap after lap. DeMan began to track down the leader and was less than half a second behind when the yellow flag came out for Jim Huppunen's flat tire. Kruchka was still in third at this point, but pulled off the track with brake and rear end problems just as the green flag was about to come back out. Cory Turner inherited the third spot as a result.

Brown held serve again while DeMan and Turner diced for the second spot until another yellow flag appeared for a Dan Nanticoke spin. Aaron Turkey then stopped with a flat tire just as the green flag was about to reappear, and when it finally did Turkey's teammate Cooley brought out the yellow again with a front suspension problem. Cooley's bad luck moved Ryan Turner and Travis Cunningham into fourth and fifth, respectively, with Brown, DeMan, and Cory Turner ahead of them.

The green flag stayed out only briefly, as things went from bad to worse for Huppunen, Nanticoke, and Turkey who all tangled in turn one. Huppunen and Nanticoke restarted, but Turkey's night ended on the tow truck. The restart saw Tyler Rand spin to again bring out the yellow flag and set up a nine lap dash to the finish.

DeMan stuck close to Brown on the restart, running the bottom in turns one and two and the top in turns three and four. Just it looked like DeMan might have something for the leader, he got over the cushion in turn four and gave up the second spot to Cory Turner. Brown was oblivious to all of this, but he quickly became aware of Turner's presence when Turner tried a bold move in turn one with three laps left; Turner dove low under Brown entering the corner but slid too high and off the banking, which allowed Brown to cross underneath and keep the lead.

Brown drove on to take the win, while Cory Turner fended off brother Ryan for the runner-up spot. DeMan and row seven starter Cunningham rounded out the top five.

"I just figured that was where it was going to be and if they were going to pass me they were going to have to go around me," said Brown of his commitment to running the low groove. "Cory sort of surprised me there at the end, but it was a good race."

Cory Turner had a slightly rueful smile afterwards as he reflected on his race.

"A podium's good, just got a little excited there," said Turner. "I should have chilled out there for a couple laps.

The Knights of Thunder series will next be in competition at the 16th Running of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals on Friday, July 1 at Ohsweken Speedway. Visit www.knightsofthunder.com for more information.

Dunham, Long, and Sherman winners on Firecracker Friday at Limaland.

July 1, 2022

Lima, OH

By Gerry Keysor

Limaland Motorsports Park kicked off the Independence Day weekend with the annual running of Firecracker Friday at the quarter mile clay bullring on Friday night. Leipsic, Ohio’s Chase Dunham drove his family owned No. 66 to the win in Ohio Logistics NRA 360 Sprint Invader competition, while No. 65 Todd Sherman added another Northwest Physical Therapy DIRTcar UMP Modified feature win to his resume, and No. 26 Justin Long bagged the Lock Sixteen Thunderstock victory.

The Lock Sixteen Thunderstocks kicked off the feature events with their 15 lap A Main. Long and No. 82 Chris Douglas would lead the field to the green flag, with Long grabbing the early lead. Douglas would keep close in second while battling with No. 17J Jarrod Klay, and No. 4m Gabe Mueller. Mueller would use the bottom of the track to make his way to 2nd on lap 5 and began his challenge for the lead. Despite his best efforts, Mueller had to settle for second to Long, No. 60 Tony Anderson would charge to 3rd, with Klay 4th and No. 25 Nick Bowers completing the top 5.

Next up were the Ohio Logistics NRA 360 Sprint Invaders in their 25 lap A Main. No. 17 Jared Horstman and No. 66 Chase Dunham would make up the front row for the feature event, and it appeared that Jared Horstman was going to charge to the early lead. However Horstman would hook the ledge of the cushion in turn 1 and get upside down, bringing out the red flag and setting up a complete restart. Horstman would walk away from the crash unharmed. On the restart, No 2S Kyle Sauder would inherit the pole position and made the most of the opportunity, jumping out to the early lead. Dunham would stay in striking distance and make his move as the leaders were making their way through lapped traffic on lap 12. Jake Hesson would crack the top 5 after starting 18th, but his charge to the front would end on the final lap as he rolled his Sam Jackson Auto Body sponsored No. 7T on the back straightaway, bringing out the red flag and setting up a one lap dash to the finish. Dunham would hold off Sauder for the win , No. 16C Tylar Rankin finished 3rd, No. 23 Devon Dobie 4th, and No. 22M Dan McCarron completed the top 5.

The Northwest Physical Therapy DIRTcar UMP Modifieds would complete the night's racing action with No. 4L Mike Learman and No. 65 Todd Sherman making up the front row. Sherman would grab the lead and would survive multiple cautions and restarts to win the 20 lap A Main over No. 95J Jerry Bowersock. No. 36 Brandon Vaughan would finish 3rd, with No. 4 Jason Kinney 4th, and No. 9PG Percy Gendreau completing the top 5.

Limaland Motorsports Park will be closed next Friday, July 8th, but will return to action on Friday July 15th for the inaugural Tribute to Gene Frankhart, the longtime competition director and racetrack guru. In action will be the Ohio Logistics NRA 360 Sprint Invaders, Northwest Physical Therapy DIRTcar UMP Modifieds, and the Lock Sixteen Thunderstocks.
