Race Results From Coast to Coast


Pirtek Renegades

June 12, 2021, New Richmond, WI by: Terry Lenhertz Mother Nature turned the temperature down just a bit on Saturday, but Chase Viebrock kept the heat turned all the way up in his #50 winger on kids’ night at Cedar Lake Speedway. A robust 18 winged sprints checked in the back gate for their seventh event on the winged schedule for the Pirtek Renegades. In qualifying action, Patrick Heikkinen nabbed the checkers in the first heat, and Bob McVitty went flag-to-flag to win heat two.

Viebrock accumulated the most passing points, but Todd Hansen snared the #1 pill in the redraw, with Viebrock to his right hand side. At the drop of the green, Viebrock jumped to cushion and into the lead, but the race was slowed by a caution just one lap in. On the restart, Viebrock again shot out to a big advantage, leaving Hansen, Owen Carlson, Pat Heikkinen and Ryan Buck to battle for second. Another caution just prior to halfway was the only thing that could slow down Viebrock, as he had lapped half the field at that point. Back under green, Viebrock went back to work, while Buck and Hansen engaged in a good high/low battle for position in the top five. At the double checkers it was Viebrock claiming his fourth consecutive win in dominating fashion. Heikkinen was second and Buck matched his career best with a third place finish. Hansen and Trevor Reding rounded out the top five.

In other Renegade action, Brandon Palm scored his first win of the season for the Western Renegades at Devils Lake Speedway in Crary, North Dakota. The Pirtek Renegades return to action this Saturday, June 19, for the sprint car special at Ogilvie Raceway. Both divisions, the traditional and winged sprint cars attack the 3/8ths mile just east of Ogilvie, Minnesota.

 

 

Arenz, Schmidt, Loehr, Lorier score in PDTR A-main action

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 12, 2021 – The seventh Plymouth Dirt Track Racing program of the 2021 season produced plenty of action at the front of the field with three drivers visiting the Kunes RV Winners Circle in A-main action for the first time in 2021 and another earning back-to-back main event victories Saturday, June 12 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

In A-main action, Travis Arenz of Sheboygan stormed to his second consecutive A-main victory of the 2021 campaign in the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty 360 Sprint Car headliner.

Three-time and defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland shook off an uncharacteristically slow start to the season by claiming his first 25-lap Sheboygan’s Country B93.7 Late Model main event victory of 2021.

2018 PDTR Grand National champion Matt Loehr of Dotyville notched is initial triumph of the 2021 season in the 25-lap Oostburg Automotive Grand National A main.

Sheboygan’s Steve Lorier was another 2021 first-time winner in the 25-lap PDTR B Mod A main.

In the 25-lap 360 Sprint Car A main, third starter Will Gerrits of Waupun bolted past polesitter Mike Yurmanovich of Cascade and outside front row starter Justin Erickson of Plymouth to take the lead in turn two of the opening lap.

On lap three, Travis Arenz, who started seventh, used the high groove to power his way into second. One lap later, Arenz swept past Gerrits to take over the top spot and he immediately proceeded to leave the field in his dust.

Starting on lap 11, Arenz found himself negotiating heavy lapped traffic on the dry slick third-mile track surface. As Arenz enjoyed a comfortable half-lap lead, two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion and current point leader Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh, who started eighth, worked his way into the runner-up spot.

As the laps wound down, McMullen was able to close the gap slightly, but it was all Arenz at the front of the field as he cruised to his sixth career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory and second straight main event win at the Plymouth track in the caution-free event.

McMullen had to settle for second, Gerrits wound up third, Erickson placed fourth and 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove charged up to finish fifth after starting 16th.

Polesitter Charlie Schmidt of Cedar Grove grabbed the lead at the drop of the green flag of the 25-lap Late Model A main with 2016 PDTR Late Model champ Tim Buhler of Greenbush in tow.

On lap 3, Justin Schmidt used the cushion to shoot into third in the running order. The first of two caution flags appeared on lap 4 when Donny Singer of Random Lake spun in turn four.

Following the restart, Justin Schmidt used the high line to move around Buhler into second on lap 5 before the second and final caution flag flew on lap 6 for a spin in turn four involving Sawyer Specht of Sheboygan Falls.

When the race resumed, Justin Schmidt continued to stalk the low-riding Charlie Schmidt along the outside groove. On lap 12, Justin Schmidt assumed the lead utilizing the high line in turn four.

After switching to the low line, Justin Schmidt went on to built up a comfortable cushion in the closing laps en route to his 14th career PDTR Late Model A-main victory by a half-lap margin.

Charlie Schmidt finished second, Buhler placed third, fifth starter Turk Letizia of Milwaukee placed fourth and sixth starter Justin Ritchie of New London rounded out the top five.

The 25-lap Grand National A main got off to a rousing start as octogenarian polesitter Dick Hed of Plymouth dueled side by side with outside front row starter Matt Loehr for the first six laps of the race.

On lap 7, the cushion-pounding Loehr finally surged ahead of the low-riding Hed in turn four. The lone caution of the race appeared one lap later for a spin involving rookie Jacob Falk.

Loehr used a strong restart to pull away to a commanding full-straightaway lead over third starting Donny Kulow of Elkhart Lake over the final 18 laps of the race on the way to his seventh career PDTR Grand National A main victory.

Donny Kulow came home second, two-time PDTR Grand National champion Don Sorce Jr. of West Allis finished third after starting sixth, 2019 PDTR Grand national champ Tyler Kulow of Plymouth placed fourth after starting seventh and Hed rounded out the top five.

Polesitter Justin Bauer of Sheboygan Falls seized the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap B Mod as third starter Jonathon Baumann of Sheboygan moved into second on lap 3.

The first of three caution flags appeared on lap 7 when Travis Schmidt of Waldo spun in turn four after contact with Sheboygan’s Trevor Frank, which sent Frank to the rear of the field.

On the restart, Frank, James Fischer of Oostburg and Patrick Hanson of Sheboygan Falls collided in turn two to bring out the second caution flag. Following the restart, Baumann flexed his muscle along the high groove to take over the to spot on lap 9 in turn two.

The third and final caution flag appeared on lap 12 when Jonathan Hitsman of Sheboygan and Gary Glander of Sheboygan Falls made contact in turn four. Fifth starter Steve Lorier used a nifty low move on the restart to steal the lead away from Baumann in turn two on lap 13.

However, Baumann battled back on the cushion to pull even with Lorier three laps later with the two drivers dueling side by side over the next three laps before Lorier finally surged ahead for good on lap 18 along the inside groove.

Lorier went on to claim his third career PDTR B Mod A-main victory by a five-car margin over Baumann, who placed second. Bauer finished third, Rory Welch of Grafton, who started second, finished fourth and 12th starter Spencer Long of Sheboygan Falls came home fifth.

Jack Vanderboom of Dousman won the first 12-lap 360 Sprint Car B main and Adam Miller of Plymouth claimed the victory in the second 12-lap 360 Sprint Car B main.

Duncan gets last corner, last lap pass for thrilling Fremont Speedweek win

Sunday, June 13, 2021

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Cole Duncan pounced when he had to – the last corner of the last lap – to win night two of the Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek Presented by Hercules Tires at Fremont Speedway. Duncan squeezed between the front stretch wall and race-long leader Danny Dietrich to claim his fifth FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobil 1 victory by a margin of just 0.248 seconds.

Ironically Duncan’s victory on Kistler Engines/Kistler Racing Products Night surpassed his dad Rodney Duncan’s career wins with the series and it was his sixth career win at Fremont, also surpassing his dad’s career win total at “The Track That Action Built.”

The 40-lap event featured intense battles throughout involving Dietrich, Justin Peck and Duncan which had the capacity crowd on their feet and roaring above the sound of the sprint cars.

“I ain’t never had that much patience in my life. I knew I had a run off of two on Danny and I seen Peck kept sneaking under me in three and four but I knew I was better on the top. I knew as soon as I showed Danny my nose he would block that line. And I said screw it and I hung it out on the top and he raced me clean off the corner…I don’t even think we hit wheels. You couldn’t have fit a piece of paper between his wheel and my wheel and my wheel and the wall. Man what a hell of a race. Thank you fans for coming out…a hell of a crowd. I’ve got family and friends here and Sheldon and Julie from Ohio Heating here…I hope we made them proud tonight. My family…my dad, Jamie, my wife, my mom missed this one…she had graduation parties or something but she won’t miss the next one I bet. Pretty cool to pass my dad in All Star wins. I look up to my old man a lot and to get pass him in that win column…it’s really really tough to come by these All Star wins right now. This is probably the best I’ve seen in All Star field of cars since my dad ran in the 90s and early 2000s,” said Duncan beside his Ohio Heating/Helms Construction/Motor City Transport/Wolf Composites backed #22.

“In the heat and the dash we were just kind of hanging on. I’ll give it to my guys…they just went to work on it. Man they got the tune on it there. As soon as I got the wing back it took off. I knew we were going to be good but I raced hard with Peck there but I kind of slid across the track and I thought I may have sealed my tire up but after a few laps it worked itself back in. It was a technical track. You can’t say it didn’t put on a good race. We came from eighth and a last lap pass I don’t think you can ask for a much better race than that,” added Duncan.

Dietrich, who hails from Gettysburg, PA., led laps 1-39.75, and second was very disappointing to say the least.

“Hats off for all the fans for coming out. We came out here to Ohio because Ohio puts on the best racing in my mind. The fans are awesome and the tracks put on really good shows. I’ve been wanting to come here since I was here in 2014. Son-of-a-bitch we missed it by a quarter of a lap. He was coming, he was fast. I was trying to lean on him a little bit but not touch and try to get him to check up from the outside fence and beat him to the line but Cole is always good here. It’s a tough one to swallow. I really want to win in Ohio bad. We’re here for the whole week and we’re excited and I think everyone knows we’re here to play. We’ve had two really good nights. I love these bullrings…I love the slick,” said Dietrich beside his Sweeney Chevy Buick GMC/Pace Performance/Weikerts Livestock/Sandoes Fruit Market backed machine.

Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck really got his start in winged sprint car racing coming to Fremont Speedway and settled for third at the checkers.

“I felt like every now and then I could get a run and keep up with those guys. But Cole by far had the best car. He showed me his nose a couple of times and it was all I could do to try and keep him behind me. I need to get more consistent getting off of four here and I felt that’s where I would lose ground. All and all this Buch 13 has been pretty fast the past couple of nights so we will throw the wrenches on and try to get it a little bit faster and gets some wins this week,” said Peck beside his Coastal Race Parts.com/TheTree Center/Buch Motorsports Store.com backed #13.

Not to be outdone, the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints also put on a fantastic show with veterans Paul Weaver and Alvin Roepke battling for the lead while dealing with lapped traffic. With three laps to go the duo made contact exciting turn four and then Weaver got caught up in a lapped car spinning. Roepke was able to nurse his car which had a mangled front wing the last three laps for his second win of the season and the 11th of his career at Fremont.

“I think Paul was a little better than us…I got a little lucky there. But hey, I won at Fremont Speedway on a speedweek night. It doesn’t get much better than that,” said an elated Roepke beside his Fremont Auto Parts/NAPA/Darmofal Racing backed #99.

Dietrich and Zeb Wise brought the field to green for the All Star 40 lap feature with Dietrich bolting into the lead over Wise, Stuart Brubaker and Peck. Dietrich built a sizeable lead by lap five over Wise and Peck while Brubaker, Duncan and Cory Eliason battled hard for fourth. Back to back cautions on lap eight kept the field close and when the green flew Dietrich pulled away again while Peck and Duncan put on a show battling for second.

Following a caution on lap 12, Dietrich couldn’t escape this time as both Peck and Duncan stayed close while Wise and Travis Philo battled for fourth. Heavy lapped traffic came into play at the half-way point as Dietrich continued to hold a narrow lead over Peck and Duncan. With seven laps to go Dietrich had been able to put a couple of lapped cars between himself and Duncan and Peck.

But Duncan was able to use the high line exiting turn two and made up valuable real estate once around the lapped cars. As they took the white flag Duncan charged to Dietrich’s outside but Dietrich moved up and blocked. Entering the final two turns Duncan sailed his car to the top and pinched himself between Dietrich and the wall and won the drag race to the checkers.

In the 25 lap 305 A-main Chris Verda and Kody Brewer brought the field to green with Brewer gaining the slight advantage over Verda, Weaver and fifth starting Roepke. Weaver moved into second by lap four and quickly pressured Brewer, eventually grabbing the top spot on lap eight.

A caution on lap 13 saw the running order Weaver, Brewer, Roepke, Verda, Brandon Moore, Matt Foos and Steve Rando. Weaver would keep Roepke at bay until they entered heavy lapped traffic with just six laps to go. Roepke closed quickly and as they came to the line to complete lap 22 the duo made contact with Roepke leading by a bumper. Entering turns one and two Roepke had just cleared a lapped car which spun right in front of Weaver sending him spinning.

Roepke had a completely destroyed front wing that was rubbing on his right front tire. But, he was able to nurse it home for the win over Brewer, Verda, Foos and Rando.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, June 26 on Willie’s Sales and Service Night. The Kistler Racing Products/All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group will battle for $4,000 to win while AFCS 305 Sprints and Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks will also be in action.

Tulsa, Oklahoma (June 12, 2021) It took veteran driver Jonathan Beason less than five laps to drive from his eighth place starting position to the front of the pack in tonight’s Lucas Oil POWRi West A-main event at Creek County Speedway.

Making a three-wide pass on series veterans Eric Fenton and Michelle Decker to take the lead, once out front Beason set sail and picked up his first POWRi West win of the 2021 season.

Dirt Cup Tune Up to Smith

6/12/21

Alger, WA – Skagit Speedway stole one from Mother Nature on Saturday night, running four classes and seventy five cars through the night at a breakneck pace to complete the full night of racing before Summer Thunderstorms rolled through Skagit county. In the final tune up before the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup in two weeks, Cam Smith won his third feature of 2021 in the Budweiser 360 Sprint Cars.

Unlike his previous two wins which came on late race passes, Smith would lead wire to wire for his third victory of the year. Smith never had it easy, as Trey Starks was on him early and often as the pair cut through traffic lap after lap, with Starks matching Smith move for move through the back of the field. Smith would hold strong all the way through to take the win, with JJ Hickle passing Starks in the late stages to take home second. Jason Solwold, Hickle and Brock Lemley won the heats while Colton Heath grabbed quick time.

Corey Summers won his first career main event in the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints, leading every lap of the main with Greg Hamilton and Justin Youngquist finishing second and third. Hamilton set quick time with Joe Lyon and Eric Turner winning heats.

It was another barnburner of a main event for the NW Focus Midgets at Skagit Speedway with Alex Peck picking up his first win on dirt after leading all 25 laps of the feature. Nick Evans pressed Peck hard through slower traffic and pulled even with Peck on the final lap out of turn two, but Peck would hold strong and kept the lead to score the win. Evans, who broke the 26 year track record set by John Starks earlier in the night, settled for second ahead of Nik Larson. Peck was a heat race winner, as was Jesse Munn and Travis Jacobson. Jamee Gardner won the B Main.

Colin Sims picked up his first win of the year in the Outlaw Tuners and second for his career. Sims took the lead on lap five from Vance Hibbard and held off a furious last lap run by Howard Vos to secure the win. Vos and Hibbard ran second and third, while the heats were won by Mike Macpherson and Jon Edwards.

Wilmot Raceway

(Wilmot, Wis., Saturday, June 12, 2021)--Beaver Dam's Scott Nietzel captured his first 30-lap Bumper to Bumper Interstates Racing Association(IRA) Sprint Car feature at Wilmot Raceway in eight years Saturday, June 12.
Nietzel overtook early race leader Jeremy Schultz of Beaver Dam on the eighth lap of the non-stop main, pulling away through lapped traffic enroute to his second IRA win in as many nights having won on Friday, June 11 in Hartford, Michigan. IRA point leader Jake Blackhurst of Hanna City, IL caught Schultz on the final circuit for runner-up with Schultz coming across third. Mike Reinke of Howards Grove was fourth and Blake Nimee of Oswego, IL fifth.
Caledonia's Chris Carlson came from last starting spot in the field due to mechanical problems, but came through to take his sixth 20-lap modified feature win of the season. Carlson, who has won every 2021 main event at Wilmot, worked past early race leader Mike Simons of Genoa City on the restart following a caution with 11 laps remaining. Eagle's Steve Mueller came on to take second. Sheboygan's Joel Seegert third. Genoa City's Nick Simons fourth. West Allis Bart Sievert fifth.
"We couldn't keep the motor running, so we had to get pushed to start the feature which put us, by rule, in the back of the field," said Carlson. "We'll have to see what is going on with the motor. This is a great win because it's my dad's birthday, so this is for him."
Trevor's Chris Dodd headed up the field every lap of the 20-lap Autometer-Brewington Electric Wisconsin Wingless Sprints feature scoring his second Wilmot main event win in a row. Allen Hafford of Beach Park, IL was second. Kansasville's Ryan Marshall third. Bristol's Chris Klemko fourth. Clayton Rossmann of Wadsworth, IL fifth.
"The car was really dialed in," said Dodd. "I have to thank my great crew, sponsors, and everyone who supports this team."
Nick Petska of Spring Grove, IL won his second 20-lap IRA Lightning Sprints feature of the season at Wilmot. Petska overtook early race leader Nick Sheridan of Fox Lake, IL on the restart following a caution with 11 laps to go. Pleasant Prarie's Mike Neau, starting tenth, came on strong at the finish to take runner-up. Ron Brannam of Barrington, IL was third. C.J. Malleug of Johnsburg, IL fourth. Oak Creek's Mark Heinert fifth.
"Nick (Sheridan) was strong in his first night out," said Petska. "I didn't know where anyone was but I knew I needed to keep running hard. It's great for our team to finish one-two(Both cars are owned by Larry Neau)."

Clouser Sweeps POWRi WAR Weekend with Feature Win at Spoon River Speedway

Belleville, IL. (06/12/2021) Battling on the High-Banks of Spoon River Speedway for the first time in two racing seasons, the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League would put on a display of driving exhilaration as Mario Clouser would grab the coveted feature victory after a hard-fought clash over the field, earning the feature win at Spoon River Speedway to cap off the Illinois race weekend.

Early racing excitement with the POWRi WAR Sprint League at Spoon River Speedway would find Mario Clouser and Xavier Doney each wheel their way to heat race victories with Garrett Aitken claiming the night’s high-point qualifier award and earning a pole-starting spot in the feature event.

With Aitken leading the field to the initial green-flag start and Clouser lining up on the outside an epic battle of an open-wheel adrenaline rush would break out as the green flag was waved. Garrett Aitken would use the pole-starting spot to his advantage taking over the lead in the opening stages, leading the first several revolutions around the fast high-banked racing surface.

With lap traffic coming into play, Mario Clouser would strike, pacing the leading Aitken for multiple laps as Clouser would use a slide-job on the exit of four to pass for the lead. Never giving up the front-running position Clouser would earn his fourth feature win of the season with POWRi WAR.

Staying close to the lead late, Garrett Aitken would finish in a hard-fought runner-up position as Mitch Wissmiller finished a close third. Rookie of the Year leader within POWRi WAR Xavier Doney would show speed all event, driving to finish a solid fourth with Riley Kreisel rounding out the top-five finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League at Charleston Speedway.

Chuck Hebing Captures His Second A-Main Win Of The Season At Penn Can Speedway

(Susquehanna, Pa) After a long and storied career, Chuck Hebing is still showing his dominance and he did so Friday night at the Penn Can Speedway by leading all 25 laps en route to his second PST A-Main win of the season and 53rd overall in his career.

The lone caution came at the drop of the green flag when Denny Peebles fired before Hebing the starter. When the yellow flag came out, Mark Smith and Jeff Trombley made contact which caused Smith to suffer a right rear flat. Smith was able to replace the right rear but would have to start at the tail end of the field.

This now had Hebing and Jordan Thomas on the front row. Hebing took command early but the battle for second was heavily contested early on between Jordan Thomas and Paulie Colagiovanni. The two would go lap by lap which allowed Hebing to increase his advantage.

Finally on lap nine Colagiovanni dived to the bottom and made it stick, taking over second. At about this point of the race, Hebing finally encountered lap traffic where he continued to clear cars building a race lead over Colagiovanni. Colagiovanni would begin to pull away from Thomas who was holding on for third as Matt Farnham and Davie Franek were all contesting for the final podium spot.

With five laps remaining, Hebing cleared three more lap cars which was all he needed to hold off Colagiovanni for his second win of 2021. Jordan Thomas would finish third, followed by Matt Farnham, and Davie Franek.

The heat winners were Mark Smith, Denny Peebles, and Paulie Colagiovanni. The dash win went to Danny Varin which paid off for him as he was able to advance three positions and come home with a sixth-place finish.

The series continues through this weekend in Pennsylvania with a visit to Selinsgrove Speedway for the Joe Whitcomb Memorial.

After a Decade of Trying, Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series Driver Gets The Job Done With First TMS Victory!

Ft. Worth, TX (06/12/21) by DarinShort.com. The Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series All Star Sprint Car Showdown at Texas Motor Speedway’s Dirt Track is now in the books, resulting in two drivers picking up first-time TMS victories at the 4/10-mile speedway – and both compete regularly in the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series.

On Friday night, Austin Mundie stunned the crowd (and himself, as he mentioned during his post-race interview) when he was able to power by an ageless Sammy Swindell for the win from his 9th place starting spot. It was his first ‘Bandits win in several seasons of trying – and his first win utilizing a 410C.I. engine. On top of that, it was the first time he had ever competed driving a 410. Truly an epic accomplishment that the young driver will never forget.

When the 39 Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series teams arrived back at TMS on Friday June 11th, very warm, dry and breezy conditions would prevail. Some of the Thursday night teams would experience mechanical issues and could not return, while a few teams that couldn’t make the opener on Thursday would join in on the action. Sammy Swindell was one of those drivers experiencing engine woes early on in the event.

Continuing Thursday night’s trend of no cars getting upside down, the 10-lap heats would click off without major skirmishes.

Young Oklahoma driver, Chance Morton, would collect the most finishing and passing points in heat four to earn the pole of the championship feature event. He would come from 9th in his heat race to finish 2nd. Friday night runner-up Channin Tankersley would garner the second highest points total after winning heat one from his 4th place starting position.

An enthusiastic “No Limits” sized crowd would cheer on the 24-car starting field as they thundered down the frontstretch to take the green flag for the championship 25-lapper. Channin Tankersely would vault out to the point, while Casey Burkham would wrestle 2nd place from John Carney II.

Tankersley would encounter heavy lapped traffic on lap seven, when 8th place starter Jeb Sessums would make his presence known by getting all the way up to 2nd place when the one and only red flag period of the two-day event would take place after polesitter Chance Morton would climb the right rear tire of another car, causing it to flip up the track to the wall in corner two.

With the crowd holding their breath, Morton would emerge from his mangled car, resulting in the crowd offering him a huge round of applause as consolation.

The red flag incident occurred on lap 14, which meant there were 11 laps to go – and plenty of time for the front running group of cars to get back into lapped traffic, as there were still 20 cars on the track racing.

With all lapped cars going to the tail when the event would resume, Tankersley would continue to lead with Sessums, Burkham and Thursday night winner Mundie in tow. John Carney II would make up the balance of the top 5.

Sessums would briefly take command of the second place position, when out of nowhere Mundie would blast by him with his sights set on Tankersley.

Tankersley would extend his lead to 10 car lengths as he approached lapped traffic. Tankersley would ride the cushion while Mundie would select primarily the middle groove.

Now mired in heavy lapped traffic, Tankersley and 7th-place starter Mundie would slice and dice their way from bottom to top – separated by a scant car length at times – with Tankersley being able to cling on to the top spot.

Coming down for the checkers Mundie would make one final attempt to clear secure the lead, when Tankersley would retain his high-side momentum and take the checkers first.

And after a decade of 2nd place TMS finishes, including June 10th, 2021, Channin Tankersley would collect his first-ever win there, and a hard-earned one, at that.

We would also like to thank the businesses that supported the event with a wide variety of driver awards throughout the two-day event.

Last night’s special awards went to:

The $300 Hard Charger Award went to Claud Estes, after advancing 13 positions from his 20th starting position to finish in 7th. Thank you to Patriot Garage Door & Service, and Pony Express Honey Company for providing these awards.

The $500 Highest Finishing Driver choosing to compete with a 305C.I. engine went to Chase Brewer, with Cabinets By Tommie, D-UP Racing and Go-2 Electrical sponsoring the award.

The “Driver Running in 8th Place on Lap 8” award, presented by Patriot Garage Door & Service, and the “Driver Running in 9th Place on Lap 9” award, presented by Cabinets By Tommy, both went to Norman Oklahoma racer, Danny Jennings, which added $200 to his earnings.

Thank you also to KoolTrikes.com for providing a $500 “Last Lap Pass for the Win” award which was nearly collected by Austin Mundie. Thanks also to Smiley's Racing Products, The Peterson Agencies and Griffith Truck & Equipment for their support of the ‘Bandits series.

Thomas Becomes Newest Sprint Feature Winner

At Gas City I-69 Speedway Friday Night

GAS CITY, Ind., June 12 – Last year Michael “Buddy” Kofoid finished second in the Indiana Midget Week USAC NOS Energy Drink national midget race at Gas City I-69 Speedway. On Friday night for the 2021 version of Indiana Midget Week at Gas City the Penngrove, Calif.-based driver did that one better, leading all 30 laps to earn a runaway, $4,000 victory over Emerson Axsom of Franklin, Ind.

Kevin Thomas Jr. of Cullman, Ala., finished sixth in the midget feature and then won the 25-lap non-wing sprint car feature by 5.221 seconds over last week’s winner, Scotty Weir of Marion, Ind. Thomas was the fourth different non-wing sprint car feature winner at Gas City this year in as many races at the quarter-mile dirt oval.

Kofoid started second in the 30-lap midget feature and already had a 1.808-second lead over polesitter Jason McDougal of Broken Arrow, Okla., by lap five. His lead was about the same, 1.802 seconds, when Justin Grant of Avon, Ind., slowed in Turn 2 and stopped on the backstretch with eight laps down while running seventh to bring out the first caution.

Axsom used the high groove in Turn 2 to pass McDougal for second on the restart, but Kofoid was already way ahead. Kofoid’s 2.163-second lead evaporated with 13 laps down, however, when the second yellow waved for a four-car crash in Turn 4 involving Jerry Coons Jr. of Cloverdale, Ind.; Chris Windom, a native of Canton, Ill.; Hayden Williams of Auckland, New Zealand, and Bryant Wiedeman of Colby, Kan. All escaped unhurt.

Daison Pursley of Locust Grove, Okla., passed McDougal on lap 14 for third, but McDougal got the position back on the following lap. While they were racing each other, Kofoid was able to once again rebuild his lead.

McDougal passed Axsom for second on lap 19, but on the last lap McDougal stopped in Turn 3 after something broke on his car on the backstretch. The problem was reportedly a broken axle, and his runner-up finish was suddenly transformed to 15th in the final rundown.

Following Kofoid and Axsom across the line was Logan Seavey of Sutter, Calif., who qualified the hard way by winning the B-main and came from the 11th starting spot in the feature. Pursley placed fourth and Cannon McIntosh of Bixby, Okla., rounded out the top five. Four of the top-five finishers were teenagers, as Kofoid is 19; Axsom is 16; Seavey is 24; Pursley is 16 and McIntosh is 18.

Kofoid was eighth in Fatheadz Eyewear qualifying and fourth in his heat before trouncing his competition in the feature with his Keith Kunz-Curb-Agajanian Motorsports No. 67, which is an IWX/Bullet by Spike with a Speedway Toyota engine. The entry is sponsored by Mobil 1 and Toyota Racing Development.

Tanner Thorson of Minden, Nev., was the hard charger, as he started 20th and finished eighth.

Thomas started fourth in the 25-lap non-wing sprint feature in his KT Motorsports DRC Speedway Chevy No. 9K, which is sponsored by Dr. Pepper, McDonalds and KT Construction Services.

Weir, who started second, passed polesitter Jadon Rogers of Worthington, Ind., for the lead with a move to the outside in Turn 2 on the first lap, and then showed the way for the first 12 laps until Thomas passed him working lap 13.

Thomas had just passed the start-finish line to record the 13th lap when behind him something broke on the famous Paul Hazen No. 57 driven by defending track champion Max Adams, a native of Loomis, Calif., now living in Marion, Ind. Adams hit the outside wall in Turn 4 very hard to bring out the first caution flag. Luckily he wasn’t hurt.

Afterwards Adams said he wasn’t 100 percent certain what broke. “I think the drag link failed from contact earlier in the race, causing me to lose steering, but it’s really hard to say,” he said.

A second yellow still with 13 laps down flew when Chet Williams of Newburgh, Ind., spun between Turns 2 and 3, but Thomas was up to all challengers on the restart and led the rest of the 25-lap race, crossing the line with a straightaway lead.

There was a barnburner of a battle for second, however. Weir bicycled hard in Turn 4 on lap 20 but saved it and he took home the runner-up honors followed by Thomas Meseraull of Waveland, Ind.; McIntosh, and Brady Bacon of Winchester, Ind.

There was only one flip during the evening. A.J. Hopkins of Brownsburg, Ind., flipped in Turn 4 with five laps down in the fourth sprint heat, but luckily escaped injury.

The event was streamed live on FloRacing.com.

Beth Boles, wife of Indianapolis Motor Speedway President Doug Boles and mother of IndyCar star Conor Daly, got a ride in the track’s two-seat non-wing sprint car during the course of the evening. Matt Goodnight of Hartford City, Ind., was the driver. One lucky fan also won a ride in it at a future date. Fans can buy a ride in the two-seater throughout the season by inquiring at the track’s gift shop.

SAGE BORDENAVE BECOMES FOURTH DIFFERENT WINNER OF 2021 WMR SEASON

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (June 11, 2021) – French Camp’s Sage Bordenave earned his first career Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction feature on Friday night, grabbing the 20-lap contest at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif. The win makes Bordenave the fourth different victor of the 2021 season and came in just the second start for the Micro Sprint graduate.

Antioch’s Shawn Arriaga and series points leader David Prickett of Fresno split the eight lap heat races. An eight-car inversion placed Bordenave on the pole for the 20-lap main event.

Action slowed on lap nine when Keoni Texeira flipped the No.58 Spike Chassis. He was uninjured. Brentwood’s Blake Bower restarted third after starting fifth, then went to work on Megan Moorhead of Santa Paula for second. Bower grabbed the position on lap 12 and aimed to reel in Bordenave for the lead. Prickett overhauled Moorhead on lap 14 with Prunedale’s Caleb Debem following through into fourth a lap later.

Bower tried for the lead on lap 16, looking on the inside in turn one, but was unable to complete the pass. Bordenave drove ahead in Kevin Felkins’ #35B for the victory followed by Bower, Prickett, Debem, and Moorhead. Oakley’s Bryant Bell debuted in sixth as well.

Western Midget Racing continues June 25-26 with races at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville and Ventura Raceway. Both nights will be streamed live on FloRacing.com

Ian Madsen finally breaks through with All Star win to open speedweek at Attica

Friday, June 11, 2021

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Coming into Friday night’s 39th Annual Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek Presented by Hercules Tires event at Attica Raceway Park, Ian Madsen had finished second in FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champion Presented by Mobil 1 competition five times and just couldn’t get into victory lane. No more as the St. Mary’s New South Wales, Australia native took the lead on lap 14 and held off a charging Cory Eliason to score his first ever win at Attica on Ohio Laborers/Ohio CAT Night and it was worth $6,000.

“I’m kind of speechless right now. It’s been so long since I’ve won a race. It’s an incredible feeling. I cannot thank Sam McGhee Motorsports enough for giving me the opportunity this year. It just such a relief. I was kind of ride less there at the end of last year and those guys put a lot of belief in me to come out and win races this year. It’s been painfully close a couple of times. It’s just awesome to get the first one. I can’t thank my guys enough…Kevin, Payton and of course Sam McGhee, Kathy and Mike McGhee at home…I know they are watching and this one is for you guys,” said Madsen beside his XYZ Machining/Winters Performance Products/Champion Racing Oil/FK Rod Ends/Finer Cuts Lawn Care backed #11.

Eliason, from Visalia, California, closed the final hand full of laps but just couldn’t catch Madsen and settled for second.

“We battled a stumble on the starts. It took about to turn one to get going. Our car was bad ass fast tonight and the track was beautiful. No matter how hard we try here this place eludes me but we get better every time we come here so I think we definitely had a great race car. I feel bad for the guys because we’ve battled this stumble the past couple of weekends. We’ve changed everything but the driver I think. We keep fighting and this is a great start to Ohio Speedweek,” said Eliason beside his Rudeen Racing/Rayce Rudeen Foundation/Hager Realty/Fatheadz Eyewear/Elliotts Custom Trailers and Carts backed #26.

From mid-race on Skylar Gee from Leduc, Alberta, Canada was a force in the 40-lap affair and came home in a solid third place in his initial outing with the Mark Coldren Motorsports 07.

“Hats off to Dalton and Jimmy…they worked their asses off. Hats off to Mark for putting us out here and taking a chance on me. I had a little bit of a slow start to the year but this is the best I’ve ever gone around here. I felt like we had a car to win but I just quite couldn’t get close enough in traffic and yellow would come out. Wish we had another 10 laps,” said Gee beside his Water Treatment by Design/Industrial Controls/Three B Services/Vector Industries/HP Engines backed machine.

Defending and two-time Attica champion Devin Shiels has yet to finish out of the top six in 2021 though a win has eluded him. The Britton, Michigan driver drive around race-long leader Matt Irey on the last lap to score his first victory of the year in the Propane.com/Dirt Nerds Podcast UMP Lat Models. It was Shiels 10th career victory at Attica.

“We’d get a run off the cushion in three and four and I had to use that high line. We’ve been changing stuff. We kind of threw a curve ball tonight…threw a new right front shock on. We were worried it wouldn’t work but it worked,” said Shiels beside his Magic Fountain Auto Wash, Rally’s Hamburgers, Dirt Nerds Podcast, Dundee Products, Banshee Graphics, Performance Machining #51.

Gee and Justin Peck brought the field to green for the 40-lap All Star A-main with Peck thundering into a big lead over Gee, Madsen, Lachlan McHugh, Cap Henry, Eliason, Cole Macedo and Chris Andrews. Andrews brought out the caution with three laps in wiping out a 2.2 second lead for Peck. On the restart while battling for fifth Henry spun.

When the green reappeared Peck once again pulled away while Gee had his hands full battling Madsen who took second on lap eight as the leaders entered very heavy lapped traffic. Peck struggled to get around the lappers and Madsen closed. Peck and Madsen battled hard for the lead and made contact on lap 14 with Madsen assuming the lead as Peck came to a halt.

Now with a clear track Madsen executed a flawless restart to lead Eliason as Gee, Macedo and McHugh battled hard for third. Macedo took third on lap 19 just prior to a caution on lap 21. Again Madsen had a great restart to lead Eliason, Macedo, Gee, TJ Michael and McHugh. Another caution on lap 23 kept the field close but as he had done several times prior Madsen got an excellent restart as Eliason took a little while to gain momentum while Gee and Macedo battled for third.

McHugh brought out the final caution with 10 laps to go and this time when the green flew Eliason hung with Madsen. Madsen maintained the lead as Eliason searched for a way around while Gee, Macedo, Danny Dietrich, Michael and Tyler Courtney gave chase.

Madsen hit his marks perfectly and drove to the win over Eliason, Gee, Macedo and Courtney.

Tyler Thompson and Matt Irey brought the field to green for the 25 lap late model A-main with Irey grabbing the lead as Thompson, Casey Noonan, Dave Hornikel, Matt Potts and Rusty Schlenk gave chase. A rash of cautions slowed the pace early. Hornikel finally took second on lap six as Schlenk battled Thompson for third.

On lap 11 Schlenk tried a big move and he sailed off turn three at full throttle in a scary looking incident that left him going to the pits. On the restart Irey led Hornikel, Thompson and Shiels. Following a lap 18 caution Shiels moved into third and took second a lap later. A final caution set up a five lap shoot-out and Irey and Shiels put on a show running side by side. Shiels, who normally likes the bottom groove, used the cushion in turns three and four and shot into the lead on the final lap to score the win over Irey, Hornikel, Thompson and Justin Chance.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, 25 on Burns Electric/Baumann Auto Group/Advanced Drainage Systems Night. It will feature the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group, the NAPA of Bryan 305 AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales and the Oakshade Raceway/Attica Late Model Series Challenge.

Mario Clouser Claims Charleston Speedway
Victory with POWRi WAR
Belleville, IL. (06/11/2021) For the third time this 2021 racing season, the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League would venture to the fan-favorite fast lap-times of Charleston Speedway with outstanding side-by-side open-wheel action. Winning the night would see Mario Clouser celebrating in his eighth feature series victory within his WAR career.

As twenty-four competitors entered into the event, early racing excitement at Charleston Speedway would find Mario Clouser, Riley Kreisel, and Wesley Smith wheel their way to heat race victories with Clouser running from starting the heat eighth to finishing first while claiming the night’s high-point qualifier award.

With Mario Clouser starting pole and Wesley Smith lined-up on the outside, the field of POWRi WAR drivers would launch to an exciting start as Clouser flexed his driving might grabbing the early lead. Smith would battle the leading Mario for nearly eighteen laps, never quite gaining on the frontrunner.

A pair of late-race cautions would bunch the competitors back together as lap traffic was beginning to come into the equation. Restarting with a bunch of speed would witness Riley Kreisel fly into the top-three even throwing sliders to advance to the runner-up position over Smith. To add to the already exciting feature event, a three-lap shootout would decide the victor as Mario Clouser was able to hold off the hard-charge of Riley Kreisel to capture the feature event, with Kreisel finishing in a close second position. Garrett Aitken would be among the front-runners all event would round out the podium finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi WAR Sprint League at Charleston Speedway.

“That was a fun one for sure, the track was fast, and they made the right call with the intermission track-prep” Mario Clouser would happily say in victory lane. Adding “I can’t thank this team enough, all their hard-work, winning races like this makes it all worth it.”

Grosz and Bosma Top Thrilling Sprint Car Features at Jackson Motorplex

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (June 11, 2021) - Lee Grosz and Brandon Bosma hustled to Victory Lane on Friday evening during a sprint car event presented by Joel Pingeon Trucking at Jackson Motorplex.

Grosz capitalized on a fast car and fortune to score his fifth career Midwest Power Series victory, which ranks second on the all-time list. The 360ci winged sprint car feature was also sanctioned by the Midwest Sprint Touring Series. It marked the 12th career triumph with the series, which also ranks second on the career wins list, for Grosz.

Brooke Tatnell drove to the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap main event as Grosz was fourth. Grosz advanced to third on Lap 2 and to second place on Lap 11. He took the top spot on Lap 15 when Tatnell slid out of the preferred bottom groove in turn four. Grosz led the lap by 0.064 of a second, but Tatnell reclaimed first place in turn two.

A caution came out before the lap was completed, placing Grosz into the lead for the restart with 10 laps remaining. It didn't take long for traffic to play a factor as Grosz pushed up the track in turn one on Lap 21 while closing in on a car to lap, allowing Tatnell to fire into the top spot. However, one lap later Tatnell got into the back of a car he was attempting to lap in turn four. The contact forced him into the berm and spun his car around, bringing out the final caution of the race.

Grosz inherited the lead and pulled away to win by 1.750 seconds over Jody Rosenboom, who charged from 10th to the runner-up result. Jack Dover rounded out the podium with Tim Estenson finishing fourth and Eric Lutz fifth.

Grosz set quick time during qualifying to kick off the night before Estenson, Dover and Tatnell each earned a heat race victory.

Bosma came out on top of a thrilling Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series 20-lap main event, which featured four official lead changes.

Trevor Serbus charged from fourth into the lead on the opening lap. Dusty Ballenger powered into first place on Lap 5, but Serbus regained the top spot during a restart on Lap 6. Ballenger chased Serbus for the ensuing nine laps before capitalizing on Serbus getting into the berm in turns three and four to move back into the lead.

Bosma, who started eighth, also took advantage and advanced into second place. He used the outside lane to his benefit on Lap 16 to pull next to Ballenger down the backstretch before taking the lead in turns three and four.

It was far from easy sailing though as Bosma got into the rear of a driver he was attempting to lap on Lap 17. He pushed up the track and 11 th-starting Rosenboom, who had just passed Ballenger for second, was about to take the lead when the caution came out.

The caution benefitted Bosma, who restarted in the lead and held on during the ensuing restart as well as a green-white-checkered finish for his first win at Jackson Motorplex this season. The margin of victory was 0.816 of a second.

Ballenger placed second with Rosenboom third, Brandon Allen fourth and Javen Ostermann fifth.

Allen, Rosenboom and Ballenger were the heat race winners.

Jackson Motorplex will be dormant next weekend in preparation for THE SHOWDOWN, which features the 43rd annual AGCO Jackson Nationals June 24-26. The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event pays $50,000 to the win.

Bandits TMS Thriller Leaves Fans in a Dither! No Limit(s) to What Tonight’s Finale May Bring!

Ft. Worth TX (06/11/21) by DarinShort.com. Fans that are familiar with the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series know that unpredictable feature event outcomes are a commonplace. And by the conclusion of the opening night of the All Star Sprint Car Showdown at Texas Motor Speedway’s Dirt Track, it put a huge exclamation point on that statement…all while giving fans and teams a huge blinking sign of ‘things to come’ with the unveiling of the new event promotional team of X.CELERATED, based out of Minnesota.

A warm breezy night would greet fans from near and far at the opening night of the highly anticipated Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series All Star Sprint Car Showdown at Texas Motor Speedway’s Dirt Track located in “No Limits” Texas.

44 Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series teams would assemble from seven states to tackle the ultra-fast 4/10- mile dirt track - that has been sitting dormant for over a year.

Five qualifying heat races would be contested to set the stage for the balance of the event with the top 16 drivers in finishing, plus passing points going directly, straight up to the championship feature.

After the conclusion of the heat races, two veteran championship winning drivers would garner the most points and punch their ticket directly to the front-row of the A-feature, those two would be none other than Johnny Herrera and Sammy Swindell.

The feature event would fire off with the crowd anticipating a thrilling duel between Herrera and Swindell – and that pair would pull out to a 10-car lead over the field until a quick caution would come out for young up-and-coming driver Austin Saunders, who suffered engine woes.

As the event would resume, Swindell would take the point in the Delaware restart. He would resume the lead, pulling away to a 10-car lead, when Herrera would teeter on the corner four cushion and allow a freight train of teams past him – including a hard-charging 9th place starter Austin Mundie.

Swindell would encounter lapped traffic by the sixth circuit and would breeze by cars as if he were on a track by himself, while Mundie quietly picked off cars, about 20-car lengths behind in distance.

With the field racing across several lines atop the hammer-down speedplant, the event would remain under green flag conditions until lap 17, when near disaster would strike the polesitter, Johnny Herrera, when his left-front shock would become unbolted, quickly leading to a variety of front suspension issues causing him to come to a stop on the backstretch, thus ending his great outing.

Then, another driver that was lurking in the wings would throw his hat into the ring on the ensuing restart, when “J2”, John Carney II, would power by Swindell on the low groove of corner two, only to have Swindell throw a massive slider in return the next pair of corners.

Undaunted, Carney would repass Swindell the next lap by, with Swindell powering back on the high side and build a 10-car length cushion.

During this swath of lead changes, five laps would quickly click off, when the yellow lights would flicker for 19-year-old Casey Burkham, who would coast to a stop at the top of corner four.

The restart to follow would see Swindell jet out to the lead with Carney and Mundie in tow – with the 24th place starter of Channin Tankersley clearing his path into the top four.

After two laps of racing a couple of cars exiting corner two would make contact, resulting in a spin and another quick yellow.

On what would become the final restart with five laps to go, Austin Mundie would dive across the bow of John Carney to take over the second-place position with his eyes set on the high-flying veteran Swindell.

The next pair of corners, Mundie would keep the throttle mashed to the floorboard on the high side squeaking by Swindell – with Tankersley powering by Swindell in the middle.

Mundie would amass a 15-car length distance at the checkers over Tankersley and Swindell, much to the delight of the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track crowd.

Mundie has competed several ‘Bandits events over the span of the past six seasons, with Tankersley doing the same…in a ribbing manner, and similar fashion to the “PA Posse’s vs. Outlaws” comparison, the All Star Showdown ‘score’ is now ‘Bandits, 1, Veteran Champions, 0, going into tonight’s Bandits Outlaws Sprint Series All Star Sprint Car Showdown finale.

If you couldn’t make to last night’s event and are now kicking yourself for missing it, grab the fam, get in your vehicle and head over for another great night of outlaw sprint car racing at Texas Motor Speedway’s Dirt Track.

Tonight’s hot laps are slated for 7:30pm and racing at 8pm. If you happen to notice, that is a half-hour later than originally scheduled, due to the position of the sun in the sky. It’s warm and dry and the track officials want to make sure the drivers have optimal racing conditions to show off their driving prowess – and the track’s potential, as evidenced by both in last night’s racing program.

No major crashes took place throughout the course of the sprint car event, and not one car in the field ended up getting upside down.

For event tickets, you can purchase them now at www.raceXR.com or you can buy them at the gate tonight.

Tonight is a completely brand new event, with no carry-over from last night’s show. Rounding out the three-division racing card will be the Southern Modifieds and Factory Stocks.

Mullen collects fourth career NOSA victory at Devils Lake


By Mike Spieker

CRARY, N.D. (June 8, 2021) – The Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprints made their first of two visits of the 2021 season to Devils Lake Speedway on Saturday night. Grand Forks driver Brendan Mullen picked up the feature win - his second of the season and the fourth of his career.

“It feels really good,” said Mullen after the race. “We’ve wrecked a couple of cars already this year and have had a lot of shop time lately. Things haven’t gone exactly perfect but we are learning and that’s what it is all about for us right now.”

Greg Nikitenko and Zach Omdahl led the field of 15 to the green flag for the 25-lap main event.

Minot veteran Nikitenko jumped out to the early lead. Nikitenko led the first eight circuits until both Omdahl and Mullen snuck by, relegating him back to third.

Omdahl was fast on the cushion, holding nearly a 10 car length lead over Mullen.

“Track position was a big deal. We were lucky to start on the outside of the second row and just kind of get comfortable early on,” continued Mullen. “Nikitenko slipped up over the cushion and we were lucky to get by him. Then I just chased Zach for forever and couldn’t make up any ground on him. Luckily a yellow came out.”

The yellow was displayed on lap nine for a spin in turn one. On the ensuing restart, Wade Nygaard charged from fourth to nearly take the lead away from Omdahl. Nikitenko also drove around the outside of Mullen to move Mullen back to fourth. Those passes were negated, however, as the caution lights came on again before the lap was completed.

“I totally botched the restart and got passed on both sides,” said Mullen. “Thankfully it got called back and Wade showed me where to go when he passed me on the inside. We used that and snuck into the lead.”

Using the moisture on the extreme inside groove, Mullen grabbed the point as the green flag flew once again. From there, the driver of the Native Nations Cannabis No. 11M pulled away to a big lead.

The race wasn’t over yet, however. The topside of the speedway began to take rubber and as Mullen began to approach traffic, that allowed Omdahl and Nygaard to close in.

With under five to go, both Omdahl and Nygaard were all over Mullen as Nygaard slipped past Omdahl to take over second. With two to go, Nygaard dove to the inside to attempt a slide job on Mullen in turn one. Mullen’s momentum carried back into the lead and the fourth-year driver held off his mentor on the final circuit to pick up the win.

The win was Mullen’s second at the speedway, but first NOSA-sanctioned win at the track.

Dream Come True- Flint Scores Emotional CRSA Win at Fonda

(FONDA, NY) – Josh Flint spent his childhood watching his dad make laps at “The Track of Champions” at the famed Fonda Speedway. Flint’s racing journey took him to Sportsman Modifieds and the Modified division over the years, before making the switch to 305 and 360 sprint cars.

Flint’s first sprint car race he attended was at Fonda and that lit the fire to maybe, someday, win a race of his own at Fonda. Sometimes dreams do come true. For Flint, the dream became reality on Saturday June 5, 2021.

Flint and newcomer Chase Moran led the 18-car field to the green flag after Flint pulled the number one pill in the redraw. Flint jumped out to the early lead with Moran in tow. The driver out of Cherry Valley, NY would set a quick pace all alone out front but it was former CRSA Series Champion Jeff Trombley who was the man on the move.

Sporting new colors this weekend, Trombley found something racy up top and starting his ascent into the top five and eventually third position. By lap four Trombley was up five positions to third, then on lap ten made his way around Moran for the number three spot. A fierce battle with Mike Kiser ended with Trombley in second and taking to the whip to catch Flint for the lead.

Over the second half of the race, Flint had the better line in turns one and two, Trombley the better line in three and four. Coming to the two to go signal, Trombley had a little trouble negotiating the outside of turn four and gave Flint the gap he needed to secure the victory.

The victory lane embrace in the checkered flag Fonda Victory Lane told the whole story.

“I’m glad I can stand here in Victory Lane knowing I earned it,” said Flint.

“They said Trombley was barking down the back door and I look up to him so much and he’s got so many laps around here.”

The history of the Flint family racing Modifieds at Fonda goes back to when Flint’s father won the Modified title in 1987.

“It’s been over 30 years since a Flint stood right here. If I could have a chance to win the championship or win a feature here at Fonda, I’d take the Fonda win.”

CRSA Fonda Notes:

JR Hurlburt driving the Mike VanDusen owned No. 56 would round out the top five after fading back from his fourth place starting spot. The racing action would slow just one time for the slow car of Jordan Hutton in turns one and two. He was assisted off the track and his night was cut short with rear end issues.

Next on the schedule for the Super Gen Products CRSA 305 Sprints is a trip to the Land of Legends Raceway on Saturday June 19. Quickly followed by a trip to another Deyo-promoted facility- Utica-Rome Speedway on Friday June 25.

John Clancy wins annual Dylan Bias Memorial Race

The annual Dylan Bias Memorial race is one that area Super Stock drivers mark on their calendar for the chance to win the event named in honor of a young racer taken away too soon. With the family and friends of Dylan working hard to secure sponsors for the event, the drivers were rewarded for their efforts.

John Clancy, Jr. of California, MO has the track at Double X figured out as he won the annual event with an impressive run. The 20 lap main event for the super stocks began with a series of yellow flags for minor spins. Once the racing got underway, Derek Henson of Russellville would put his number 27D machine at the front with Clancy and Harlan Dowell right with him in second and third. This front trio would continually challenge each other, but Henson would not relinquish the top spot. Behind these three a second group of Cole Henson, Joe Miller and Steve Beach were waging a battle of their own for the 4 through 6 positions. The close racing would ultimately take its toll and an incident of too many cars in too little space would see Beach and Miller come out on the losing end on lap 12. The lengthy red flag allowed the remainder of the field to assess where they needed to be in the closing laps. On the restart Derek Henson maintained the point with Clancy and Dowell in second and third respectively. As the laps clicked by, Clancy was gaining on the leader and was able to move to the point and race to the checkered flag and the added purse for the event. Dowell would finish second with Derek Henson claiming third ahead of brother Cole Henson in fourth and Chris Brockway finishing fifth.

The heat races were claimed by Derek Henson and John Clancy.

Two 8 lap “Dashes for Cash” were also on the card as a winner takes all $1000 prize. Dash one of the top six card saw Harlan Dowell emerge victorious over Derek Henson and Clancy. Dash number two saw veteran racer Dale Berry pick up the paycheck over Brockway and Jim Kimbell. A big thanks to all of the Dylan Bias family, friends and sponsors that made this event possible in 2021.

The Pure Stock division was a late addition to the evenings racing card, this coupled with the spotty rains around the area made for a light car count but the drivers came to race. Making the long haul from Springfield, MO and dodging rain showers along the way, Grayson McKinney made the most of the opportunity in picking up the feature win. For the majority of the race Rodger Detheridge gave chase until retiring to the pit area with car issues. Following McKinney across the finish line was Russell Beach in second, Curt Turpin in third, Chris Romig in fourth and Detheridge in fifth. McKinney also claimed the lone heat race. Pure Stocks will be returning for the “Race for Riley” on July 11.

The Winged Sprint Cars once again put on a great race for the fans in the stands. Newlywed driver Tyler Blank took the lead in turn 1 on lap 1 and led the distance. It was not an easy victory as Taylor Walton ran a very strong second and finished less than a car length behind Blank. A lap 23 restart would see Walton trying a low side pass on each circuit coming out of turn four, only to see Blank hold on and claim the checkers ahead of his competitor. Following the two top cars was Corey Nelson posting a third place showing, Jack Wagner with another top five in fourth and Korey Bales completing the top five. Blank and Walton also picked up heat race victories for the evening.

At intermission, drivers came through the stands and passed the helmet for fellow racer Cody Baker of Lone Jack. Baker was injured in a highway accident last week on his way home after racing at Double X. The generosity of racers and fans is to be commended for the outpouring of support for Cody. We all wish you a complete and successful recovery.

Sunday Night Thunder continues next Sunday night with Winged Sprint Cars, Super Stocks and the return of B Modifieds for a second visit to Double X in 2021. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for updates and information.

Stu Snyder Triumphs Field at Bethany Speedway Debut with United Rebel Sprint Series

BETHANY, Missouri (June 5, 2021) – The POWRi Drive to Zero United Rebel Sprint Series Presented by Mel Hambelton Ford Racing debuted at yet another Missouri facility on Saturday. Fifteen cars were in attendance atop the 3/8-mile semi-banked dirt oval of Bethany Speedway in Bethany, Missouri. The feature event was action-packed with several position changes, but it was Lincoln, Nebraska’s Stu Snyder claiming victory.

Jacob Dye and Mike Houseman, Jr. set the pace for the 25-lap feature event. The initial start resulted in hard contact between several cars and a flipping Chad Salem into turn one. Salem walked away unscathed. A complete restart saw Houseman taking off with the early lead, followed by Dye and Snyder. Snyder would then take over the second position while Ty Williams began his march forward from the ninth place starting position. Snyder soon went on to take the lead around the bottom with Houseman keeping a steady pace in second. Kyler Johnson moved up to challenge Williams for third while Snyder began stretching the lead.

A caution flew over the field for a spinning car in turn three with five laps completed. Williams moved into second on the restart, and soon took over the lead while Johnson advanced to third. Williams stretched the lead across the field, but lap traffic soon became a factor allowing Snyder and Johnson to close in. Snyder advanced to the lead, but not without pressure from Williams and Johnson.

A late-race restart with two laps remaining allowed Snyder a clear track and clean air to pull away from the field and go on to capture the victory, with Williams finishing runner-up and Johnson rounding out the podium finishers.

Kyler Johnson and Stu Snyder captured heat race victories on Saturday night at Bethany Speedway. The Keizer Aluminum Wheels hard-charger was awarded to Ty Williams, who finished second after advancing seven positions.

Gravel, Yeigh and Goos Jr. Earn Wins at Huset's Speedway on I-29 RV SuperCenter Night

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 6, 2021) - David Gravel, Cory Yeigh and Lee Goos Jr. produced thrilling victories at Huset's Speedway on Sunday during I-29 RV SuperCenter Night.

Gravel, who ranks second in the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series, made the most of his opportunity to support car owner Tod Quiring, who also owns Huset's Speedway. Gravel received special permission to support his car owner and local sponsors a night after he captured his fifth World of Outlaws win of the year. The performance certainly didn't disappoint.

"It was an amazing weekend for our team," Gravel said. "We've been on our game every time we hit the race track. It's really cool what Tod is doing in sprint car racing. Hopefully THE SHOWDOWN is great here in a couple of weeks."

Gravel chased down Shane Golobic in traffic, executed a slide job with six laps remaining and pulled away to earn his first career win at the track in the Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig division.

"I wanted to pass him earlier, but he made it really hard to get by him," Gravel said. "He ran a good pace. He slipped up once with that lapped car. I got a good run on him and threw that slider."

Gravel, who started fourth, advanced to third on the opening lap and to second place on Lap 3. Cautions kept traffic out of the first two thirds of the race. It appeared in the closing stage and when Golobic went to the bottom in turns three and four, Gravel continued on the top groove to take the lead on Lap 20. He then added to his lead to score the triumph by 1.420 seconds.

"David is really good," Golobic said. "He's one of the best in the world. I just made a wrong decision on the backstretch. That killed my run and David was there to capitalize. I knew traffic was going to be tough. It's one of those deals I made a bad decision and paid the price for it."

Austin McCarl rounded out the podium with Jack Dover placing fourth and Justin Henderson fifth.

Gravel opened the night by setting quick time during qualifying before Dover, Brendan Mullen and McCarl recorded heat race victories.

Yeigh charged from 10th to garner his second Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks win of the season in impressive fashion. Yeigh climbed into third place by Lap 4 and drove around the top two in turns three and four on the ensuing lap to capture the top spot.

Yeigh owned a 1.397 second lead before a caution occurred on Lap 8. He built a 1.065 second advantage prior to the final caution of the race on Lap 13. Yeigh maintained the top lane while Zach Olivier, who moved into second on the restart after beginning the race ninth, worked the bottom to close in on Yeigh. Olivier moved within a few tenths of a second before Yeigh switched to the bottom groove in turns three and four. That stalled Olivier's charge as Yeigh won by 0.388 of a second.

"Yeah, I seen his nose," he said in a Victory Lane interview. "I tried to take his line away to be honest. It felt pretty good down there."

Olivier produced a second-place result with Brandon Ferguson third, Tim Dann fourth and Dan Jensen fifth.

Yeigh and Aaron Foote, who led the first four laps of the A Main, each picked up a heat race win.

Goos Jr. favored the cushion throughout most of the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series main event, but it was a move on the bottom in turns three and four that gave him the lead on Lap 16.

Micah Slendy led the first 15 laps of the main event. He first reached traffic near the midpoint of the race, which is when Goos Jr. began to reel Slendy in. Slendy drove a groove above the very bottom of the dirt oval at the three-quarters point of the feature and Goos Jr. stuck the bottom to edge into the lead. He held onto first place until the checkered flag was waved to score his second win in the last three races at Huset's Speedway.

The only two cautions came at the end of the race, setting up a pair of green-white-checkered opportunities for Slendy to reclaim the lead. However, Goos Jr. maintained the top spot en route to the triumph, making him the first repeat winner in the division this season.

"My temp gauge was buried," he said. "I didn't know if it'd take off. I was worried about the motor. I just needed two laps."

Slendy finished second with Brandon Bosma placing third, Jacob Hughes fourth and Dusty Ballenger, who entered the night as the points leader, fifth.

Slendy, Shane Fick and John Lambertz were the heat race winners.

The next event at Huset's Speedway is next Sunday for Seal Pros Night featuring the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association and the Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig, the Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks and the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series.

Exhilarating action highlights Kings Meats Night at Placerville Speedway Saturday

Placerville, CA…The Russell Motorsports Inc. managed Placerville Speedway showcased some of its best racing of the season on Saturday night. In the end it was 17-year-old Blake Carrick of Lincoln who stood in victory lane, following his second career Thompson’s Winged 360 Sprint Car triumph.

Also snagging wins on Kings Meats Night were Kevin Jinkerson with the Pure Stocks, Thomas Jensen with the Mini Trucks and Terry Bergstrom with the BCRA Lightning Sprints. All four victors during the night went home with a box of assorted meats valued at $250, courtesy of our friends at Kings.

The 25-lap Thompson’s Family of Dealerships feature started off with Tracy’s Kyle Offill impressively jumping into the lead. The 2017 SCCT Rookie of the Year ran the bottom side of the speedway to perfection, as he kept the field at bay. Placerville’s own Shane Hopkins ran the cushion like a champ as well though, keeping pace with Offill and looked to pounce as lapped traffic came into play.

A caution waved on lap 12 and during the restart Hopkins charged to the outside for the lead, only to suffer mechanical problems shortly after, which put a tough end to his evening. During the ensuing restart Blake Carrick rode the cushion to challenge Offill for the top spot, before achieving the pass with 15-circuits complete. Offill did not let Carrick get away however and stayed close hoping for a chance at traffic.

The action behind those two also kept the crowd on the edge of its seats with 11th starting Kalib Henry, Tanner Carrick and 17th starter Michael Faccinto throwing it down on the bullring. One final caution waved on lap 19 and during the restart B. Carrick pulled away to take the Ron Stahl checkered flag. Henry was able to battle his way around Offill on the final corner to snag second. Offill, Faccinto and T. Carrick completed the top-five. Andy Forsberg, Joel Myers Jr., Justyn Cox, Andy Gregg and Dylan Bloomfield rounded out the top-10.

A total of 31 Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Cars competed at the seventh point race of the year.

Winged 360 finish: 1. 38B-Blake Carrick[6]; 2. 17-Kalib Henry[11]; 3. 88-Kyle Offill[2]; 4. 5H-Michael Faccinto[17]; 5. 83T-Tanner Carrick[7]; 6. X1-Andy Forsberg[9]; 7. 46JR-Joel Myers Jr[4]; 8. 7C-Justyn Cox[10]; 9. 16X-Andy Gregg[16]; 10. 33-Dylan Bloomfield[3]; 11. 7P-Jake Andreotti[20]; 12. 94-Greg Decaires V[14]; 13. 34-Landon Brooks[8]; 14. 5V-Angelo Cornet[5]; 15. 12J-John Clark[13]; 16. 80N-Justin Bradway[12]; 17. 21X-Michael Ing[18]; 18. 24-Justin Henry[15]; 19. 78-Bret Barney[19]; 20. 21-Shane Hopkins[1]

The Pure Stocks have put on some fantastic racing all year long, but Saturday may have been the best one yet. Diamond Springs’ Kevin Jinkerson, Oakley’s Nick Baldwin and Dan Jinkerson ran nose to tail for the entire 20-lap feature. The talented trio showcased the true excitement that Stock Car racing can present on the tight Placerville quarter-mile. As the laps ticked away Baldwin stepped up his challenges and took the lead at the stripe on lap 17, but got caught above the cushion with lapped traffic creating havoc up front.

With the crowd on their feet K. Jinkerson used traffic to his advantage and pulled away just enough to seal the deal. Brother Dan encountered issues just a couple laps shy of the finish that left him up the exit ramp and back to the pit area. Kevin crossed the checkered to bring home his fourth career win at the track over Baldwin, Tom Tilford, Chris Mcginnis and Jonny Walsh.

Pure Stock finish: 1. 30-Kevin Jinkerson[2]; 2. 17-Nick Baldwin[4]; 3. 23-Tom Tilford[10]; 4. 22-Chris Mcginnis[1]; 5. 4-Jonny Walsh[6]; 6. 15A-Ryan Murphy[8]; 7. 23S-Stephanie Hanson[7]; 8. 29-Dan Jinkerson[3]; 9. 93-Mel Byers[11]; 10. 47-Michael Murphy[5]; 11. 48-John Evans[9]

The Mini Truck 20-lap main event was a battle of attrition that ultimately saw Placerville racer Thomas Jensen come out on top. Several movers and shakers were seen at various points but towards the end it was Jensen and Austin Struthers who fought for the lead. Struthers got into a spin late and that was all she wrote for Jensen, who claimed victory over Aaron Rupley, Britt McMains, Struthers and Mike Miller.

Mini Truck finish: 1. 08JR-Thomas Jensen[8]; 2. 77-Aaron Rupley[4]; 3. 72-Britt McMains[7]; 4. 70-Austin Struthers[1]; 5. 16-Mike Miller[2]; 6. 28-Howard Miller[3]; 7. 04-Wyatt Lakin[6]; 8. 61-Paizlee Miller[5]

The 20-lap BCRA Lightning Sprint finale started out with Josef Ferolito hopping into the lead. He held command solidly for the first 11 laps until suffering a flat tire, which forced him to the pit area. Terry Bergstrom had shown speed all night long and inherited the top spot after that. Bergstrom had made the pass of Dakota Albright for second shortly before that to put himself in the golden position. Bergstrom led the remaining distance to take home the win over Albright, Cody Meyer, Scott Kinney and Greg Dennett.

Lightning Sprint finish: 1. 17F-Terry Bergstrom[6]; 2. 35JR-Dakota Albright[1]; 3. 21C-Cody Meyer[3]; 4. 25-Scott Kinney[8]; 5. 47-Greg Dennett[5]; 6. 3F-Brandon Leedy[7]; 7. 13-Danika Jo Parker[4]; 8. 21J-Jayden Meyer[9]; 9. 18-Josef Ferolito[2]

Pirtek Renegade

June 5, 2021, New Richmond, WI by: Terry Lenhertz Blistering hot conditions greeted thirteen Pirtek Renegade traditional sprinters on Saturday at Cedar Lake Speedway. With the mercury tickling triple digits, the action on the track was as hot as weather, with track officials doing a masterful job keeping the legendary 3/8’s mile nearly dust free and racy. In the first of two qualifiers, Jon Lewerer nabbed the win, with Scott Brandt scoring the win in heat two.

After the redraw, Brandt sat on the pole for the 20-lap main event, with high passing points earner Mike Mueller sitting to his right. At the drop of the green, it was Mueller, fresh off his Sunday night win in Alexandria, squirting to the point with Brandt tucked in behind. With a handful of laps scored, the top five of Mueller, Brandt, Jon Lewerer, Blake Anderson, and Cam Schafer had broken away from the rest of the field. With most drivers running a lane below the cushion, Schafer was the first to try to make some headway down low. After a lap eight caution, Schafer’s mount came to life. After starting eighth, he made the low groove work to sneak under Lewerer, then Brandt to snare the runner-up spot. By then, Mueller had the pack nearly a straightaway behind him. Schafer abandoned the catfish line and headed upstairs in pursuit of Mueller. With just three laps remaining, Schafer was on Mueller’s fuel cell. Just a lap and a half from the finish, Schafer threw a slide job at Mueller in turn three to take the top spot. Mueller returned the favor in turn four and was back in front at the while flag. On the final circuit, Mueller dove low in three, nixing Schafer’s ability to try another slide job, but Schafer drove high into three. Schafer then steered his ponies downhill through the final turn and the two champions were even in the middle of the turn. In the drag race to the double checkers it was Schafer by less than a quarter-second to garner his seventh sticker of the summer. Chasing Mueller to the stripe, Lewerer, Brandt and Anderson rounded out the rest of the top five.

In other Renegade action, Stan Tomlinson scored the win for the Western Renegades at Devils Lake Speedway in Crary, North Dakota. The winged warriors of the Pirtek Renegades take center stage next weekend with a Friday stop at Eagle Valley Speedway in Jim Falls, Wisconsin, and a Saturday contest at Cedar Lake.

 

 

Balog earns first career All Star win in dominating fashion
Arenz posts first PDTR 360 Sprint Car triumph of 2021

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 5, 2021 – With temperatures soaring into the mid-90s, the action at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. was equally hot and heavy during an all-Sprint Car evening of competition featuring the national-touring FloRacing All Star Circuit Champions Presented by Mobil 1 410 Sprint Car Series in conjunction with the regional Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association Series on Saturday June 5.

In the 30-lap All Star-IRA headliner, 10-time IRA champion Bill Balog of Hartland turned in an exemplary performance en route to his first career All Star Circuit of Champions A-main victory on what he has described as one of his favorite tracks in the country.

Travis Arenz of Sheboygan cruised to his first Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car A-main triumph of the 2021 campaign in the 25-lap main event.

After earning All Star-IRA fast qualifier honors with a top lap of 11.357 seconds and winning the first All Star-IRA four-lap dash, Bill Balog earned the pole position for the evening’s 30-lap headline event.

On the drop of the green flag, second starter Ian Madsen of St. Mary’s New South Wales, Australia bolted into the lead with Balog settling in second. On lap 3, Balog attempted a slide job in turn two, but Madsen fended off the 128-time IRA A-main winner’s initial challenge.

Two laps later, Balog came back with the same move in turn two and made it stick to take over the top spot. The North Pole, Alaska native then proceeded to run away and hide from the field as he built up a half-lap cushion over Madsen by lap 13.

As Balog skillfully sliced his way through heavy lapped traffic, third starter Spencer Bayston of Lebanon, Ind., who was filling in for the injured Justin Peck behind the wheel of the No. 13 Buch Motorsports car, moved in to challenge Madsen for second beginning on lap 21.

One lap later, Bayston worked around Madsen to seize second. However, Madsen regained the spot on lap 24 before Madsen took it back on lap 27. On lap 18, eighth starter Rico Abreu of St. Helena, Calif. moved in to pressure Madsen for the runner-up spot.

With Balog cruising at the front of the field, Madsen and Abreu waged an epic duel for second over the final two circuits.

Balog, who is competing in his first full season as an All Star Circuit of Champions regular this year, held on to collect his first career All Star Circuit of Champions A-main victory by a comfortable six-second margin in the caution-free race to claim the $6,000 winner’s prize.

Madsen nipped Abreu for second, Abreu took third, Bayston wound up fourth and All Star Circuit of Champions point leader Tyler Courtney of Indianapolis, Ind., who started sixth, came home fifth.

“I would like to thank everybody who supports this team,” Balog said in victory lane. “We put this deal together to run with the All Stars late last fall and into the winter. This is unbelievable. I was scared that was the going to get passed in lapped traffic. I got behind someone that almost spun once and I was getting a little tight running the cushion through traffic.

“It was a good kind of tight though as I was able to stick it through the middle and slide guys in to get through the lapped traffic,” he said. “The guys have been working on this car to make it better and it is really running awesome right now.”

Madsen was pleased with his second-place run, but remains eager to earn his first All Star Circuit of Champions victory of the 2021 season.

“Bill [Balog] did an awesome job tonight,” Madsen said. “He just spanked us. I have to thank my team for giving me a great car. I am thankful to have such a great team behind me. We have been consistent with a lot of good finishes this year. Hopefully, we can break through and get a win soon.”

Abreu was satisfied with his podium effort in his first official A-main start at The Plymouth Dirt Track.

“My guys have been working on the car hard and it has been getting better and better lately,” Abreu said. “All of their hard work is leading us in a better direction. The track crew gave us a nice track to run on tonight and I am thankful for that and all of the support from the fans here tonight.”

In the 25-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car A main, polesitter Kevin Karnitz of West Bend grabbed the lead on the opening lap with outside front row starter Tony Wondra of Campbellsport sliding into second in the early going.

On lap 4, fourth starter Travis Arenz used the outside groove to bolt his way into second. Two laps later, Arenz shot past the low-riding Karnitz with a high move in turn four. Karnitz briefly battled back in effort to regain the top spot. However, Arenz held off Karnitz’s surge and quickly pulled away..

On lap 14, two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh, who started 10th, moved into fourth as Arenz began to weave his way through slower traffic. On lap 21, McMullen moved into second and was quickly closing on Arenz as the race wound down.

Arenz held on to claim his fifth career PDTR 360 Sprint Car main event triumph and 14th career Midwest Sprint Car Association A-main victory in the non-stop event. McMullen placed second, 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove, who started eighth, finished third, Karnitz wound up fourth and Wondra rounded out the top five.

Jordan Goldesberry of Springfield, Ill. won the 12-lap All Star-IRA B main and Will Gerrits of Waupun captured the 15-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car B main.

The all-Sprint Car event, which was sponsored by JDL Automotive, drew a near capacity crowd of spectators, along with a total of 68 Sprint Cars, including 36 All Star-IRA 410 Sprint Cars and 32 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars.

During pre-race opening ceremonies, PDTR honored Dave Deicher, who raced at The Plymouth Dirt Track and other area tracks for 30 years before serving as the flagman for PDTR for many years. Deicher passed away on Sunday, May 30 at the age of 69.

PDTR action is scheduled to resume on Saturday, June 12 with action in the PDTR 360 Sprint Car, Late Model, Grand National and B Mod divisions.

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

The new book “70 Years of Plymouth Dirt Track Racing” by Dennis Darovich of Sheboygan and George Baumann of Waupun, covering every season of racing at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. from 1950 to 2020 will be available for purchase at every race during the 2021 PDTR season, as well as at the Sheboygan County Fair office during regular business hours and online at www.amazon.com and www.barnesandnoble.com.

SMITH GOES 2-FOR-2 IN WESTERN PA SPRINT SPEEDWEEK WITH 1ST EVER SHARON WIN; CAREER 1ST WIN FOR 12TH STARTING GROVES IN RUSH SPRINTS; WOLBERT WINS #2 IN RUSH MODS; 1ST WIN FOR DOUBLE IN ECONO MODS

By Mike Leone

June 5, 2021 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


(Hartford, OH)…Summer-like conditions and finally a race night without a chance of rain graced Sharon Speedway on Saturday night. Capturing victories and celebrating in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane on Bucks Fabricating Night were Ryan Smith-Western PA Speedweek for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars, Nolan Groves-Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars, Chas Wolbert-HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and Jeremy Double-Whelen Econo Mods. A total of 111 race cars filled the pit area for the four-division program.

Fresh off his first career Lernerville Speedway win on Friday night, central Pennsylvania invader Ryan Smith made it back-to-back wins to open up Western PA Sprint Speedweek with his first ever Sharon win. Smith hounded race-long leader Carl Bowser before making the winning pass with six laps to go. Smith earned an additional $500 thanks to Krill Recycling in addition to $350 from Knox Bakery for setting fast time boosting his payday to $3,850. Smith became the fourth different winner in four "410" Sprint Car races held at Sharon in 2021.

"So far so good- it's a shame Mother Nature was rude to us the first two nights," acknowledged the 33-year-old Fleetwood, Pa. winner. "This place is awesome. The guys do a heck of a job with the race track. Thanks to Tyler (Beichner) for putting this together and the place is packed- it doesn't get any better than this. That race proved it; I raced my nuts off to get the lead. I kind of rode there waiting for traffic to come in; it got dicey, but it was a lot of fun. The guys had the car really good. I had to be patient. I had a shot at him (Bowser) on the one restart, and may have been able to make it stick, but I think we would have crashed. I saw the 11 (Bowser) creeping the bottom on the restart after I got the lead. I couldn't miss my mark so I had to rip it pretty hard to carry speed and stay ahead of him."

As the Diehl Automotive Pace Truck exited the speedway, Carl Bowser and Ryan Smith brought the 24-car starting field to green for the 30-lap feature with Bowser getting the jump and taking the early lead over Smith, Dan Kuriger, Brandon Matus, and Brandon Spithaler. Sye Lynch and Cody Bova tangled on the backstretch on lap two with both cars spinning wildly and kicking up a cloud of dust from the infield; thankfully everyone was able to avoid them.

Back under green, Bowser and Smith broke away from the field on lap four. Eighth starting Darin Gallagher was on the move taking fourth from Matus on lap six and closed in on Kuriger one lap later. Bowser was in lapped traffic on lap 10, but a caution for Spithaler gave him a clear track. When green replaced yellow, Smith tried the bottom as he raced side-by-side with Bowser, but Bowser had the momentum off the top to maintain the lead, while Gallagher nosed ahead of Kuriger for third. A.J. Flick started alongside Gallagher in row four and followed him forward taking fourth from Kuriger on lap 13. Bowser caught lapped traffic on lap 17, while Flick made the pass of Gallagher for third.

As the laps ticked off, Smith continued to stay right with Bowser and closed in on lap 23. Smith made an excellent move in traffic on lap 24 sliding past Bowser for the winning pass. Bowser kept Smith in striking range over the final six laps, but once again was denied his first Sharon win as Smith took the BJD Motorsports-owned, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers/Western Mountain/X-1 Race Cars-sponsored #6 to the win by 0.623 of a second.

After a runner-up finish on Friday night at Lernerville, Flick made the podium again with a third place effort to keep the $2,500 Speedweek crown in sight. Kuriger was fourth. In his first appearance on the red clay surface, central Pa. racer Bradley Howard went ninth to fifth. After going eighth to third in 10 laps, Gallagher dropped to sixth at the finish. Matus was seventh over Bob Felmlee. Dan Shetler crossed the line in ninth, but took a hard flip after the checkered flag as cars got bunched up entering turn one and was awarded the $100 hard luck from Wedge Motorsports. Lynch came back from his early spin to complete the top 10. May 15 winner, George Hobaugh, went 22nd to 11th to earn the $333 hard charger award from Rustler Sales and Service.

Smith set fast time overall against the 38-car field in qualifying with a lap of 15.315. Smith, Kuriger, Felmlee, and Bowser won the heat races, while Kyle Colwell and Hobaugh split the last chance B mains.

Twelfth starting Nolan Groves passed two-time Equipment Rental Options RUSH Sprint Car Weekly Series, Champion Chad Ruhlman, on lap 13 for the lead and the Go-Kart standout drove away to win his first career feature. Groves became the fifth different Pace Performance RUSH Sprint Car winner in five races on the 2021 circuit as he earned $600 in the 20-lap Terry Bowser Excavating feature. An all-time division record 23 cars were on hand!
"This is too unreal to believe right now," expressed the 17-year-old Sugar Grove, Pa. winner, who was the RUSH "Futures Cup" Champion in 2020. "I'm at a loss for words. I can't thank everyone enough. Once I figured out the line the car liked, it was pretty fast."

Teammates Amelia Clay and Jason Scoville traded the lead in the early laps before Chad Ruhlman took the lead on lap four, while his son Kevin moved into third. Kevin Ruhlman's night came to an end with a hard flip in turn four after getting into the fence with four laps completed. He was okay. Back under green flag conditions, sixth starting Steve Pedley drove under Clay for second on lap six.

Groves made his way into contention when he passed Brian Ruhlman for fourth on lap six then Clay for third one lap later. Groves continued to move forward driving under Pedley for second on lap 10. Groves ran down Chad Ruhlman on lap 13 and snuck under the standout in turn four for the lead before the event's final caution for a spin by Clay. The final seven laps went caution-free as Groves drove away to win by a commanding 3.631 seconds in the Paul Beedle-owned, Coyote Performance Products/Tom Abbott Auctioneers/Spray Foam Options/Schuylers Service Center/Speedway Service Center/Kart Works-sponsored #25. Groves became the eighth different winner in 11 RUSH Sprint races run all-time at Sharon as Chad Ruhlman remains the only multiple winner.

Chad Ruhlman was second as he's primed for another run at the $5,000 Series title. Pedley was third. Blaze Myers passed Brian Ruhlman on lap 16 to take fourth as Brian Ruhlman was fifth in his season debut. John Mollick went 14th to sixth as Brandon Shughart, Arnie Kent, Brian Hartzell, and Rod George completed the top 10. Heat winners were Shughart, Kent, and Brian Ruhlman.

Defending RUSH Sportsman Modified Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly Series Champion, Chas Wolbert, took advantage of an invert zero and went on to lead all 20 laps of the HTMA/Precise Racing Products feature for his second win in three races. With more than a full field of cars, the 26-year-old Warren, Ohio driver's win was worth $500 as he not only leads the Sharon track points, but also the $3,500 Hovis Weekly Series, and the $1,000 Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series standings.

Rookie Ben Easler kept Wolbert in his sights until the event's final caution with 13 laps scored. When racing resumed, seventh starting Justin Shea moved into second. Shea, who has a win this year at Pittsburgh, was unable to mount a challenge over the final seven laps as Wolbert took his Alcon Mechanical/Dunkin Donuts of Warren, OH/C.T. Wolbert Trucking/Walters Building Co./Ohio Intra Express/Russ King Racing/BCT Construction-sponsored #c3 to his all-time leading 17th career Sharon win by 1.745 seconds.

Easler, who is just 14 years of age, continues to impress as he came home third. Rob Kristyak went eighth to fourth as Tony Tatgenhorst rounded out the first five. Tenth starting Jacob Wolfe was sixth over Jordan Ehrenberg, Kole Holden, Preston Cope, and Kyle Martell. Heat winners over the season high 25-car field were Wolbert, Easler, and Holden.

Jeremy Double came out on top of a caution-plagued Whelen Econo Mod feature that was cut short by four laps from the scheduled 20-lap distance due to the time limit. Double, who finished runner-up in the first two events of the season, earned $400 with more than a full field of cars in action. The 25-year-old Bristolville, Ohio resident also became the third different winner in as many races this season.

It was far from an easy victory as Double had to fend off standouts Jacob Eucker and Will Thomas III over the course of the numerous restarts. Double's 15th career Sharon win moved him into a tie for second place on the division's all-time win list and came in the Honey Labs/Wedge Motorsports/No Limits Broadband/Russ King Racing/2 Brothers Motorsports/Mahan Welding/King Bros-sponsored #83.

Thomas, who started sixth due to winning the last event, was halfway to the front on the opening lap then drove under Eucker for second on lap eight, but had to settle for second. Eucker was third over Nate Young. Keith Felicetty had a strong run in fifth after starting 10th. Eucker, Double, and Young won the heat races over the season high 25-car field.

Schweikart Claims Career First at Clinton County Speedway

Mill Hall, PA – Linden’s Dakota Schweikart grew up watching his father Dale Schweikart race at their hometown track, Clinton County Speedway. The father-duo finished first and second on several occasions with Dale as the winner as recently as two weeks ago. However, this past Friday night, Dakota Schweikart was able to get the job done, advancing from his seventh place starting spot to win his first career sprint car feature at Clinton County. Other winners of the night included Brandon Moser of Milerstown, in the Pro Stocks, Jeffrey Weaver of Lock Haven in the 270 Micro Sprints, Derek Swartz of Jersey Shore in the 600 Micro Sprints, and Blake Snyder of Montgomery in the 4-Cylinders.

Jeffrey Weaver of Lock Haven and Josh Beamer of Picture Rocks, led the field of sprint cars to the green flag for the 25 lap main event. Weaver took the early lead with fourth place starter Ryan Lynn of Holidaysburg in pursuit. By the third circuit, defending track champion and 2020 IMCA National champion Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery took over the third spot and began to pressure Lynn. On that same lap Dakota Schweikart moved into the top five.

Weaver at times maintained a half of a straight away advantage over Lynn, Bard, Josh Beamer and Schweikart, as the leaders began to encounter lapped traffic. The event’s first caution occurred on lap number 14 for Frank Rusnock.

The event’s final caution occurred on lap number 17 when Dave Guss Jr. and Quinn Roberts spun coming out of turn number four. Dakota Schweikart was able to use the restart as an opportunity to wrestle the third position away from Bard, as Dale Schweikart moved into the top five. On lap number 19, Dakota Schweikart was able to pass Lynn for second and he set his sites on catching Weaver. As the field got the two laps to go sign from the flag stand, Schweikart made the winning pass. Weaver finished second, Lynn was third, Dale Schweikart claimed fourth on the final lap with Bard rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were Ken Duke Jr., Aaron Jacobus, Scott Lutz, Derick Hauck, and John Walp. Heat races were won by Aaron Jacobus, Dakota Schweikart and John Walp.

Gary Mellott of Flemington started on the pole for the Pro Stock feature event and led the opening lap. Second place starter Ray Rothfuss claimed the lead by the completion of lap number two. As Rothfuss continued to lead the race, the battle between fifth and sixth place starters, Cory Long and Brandon Moser became contested. The pair of drivers raced hard for the runner up position lap after lap. Following a caution on lap number 7 for Gary Mellott and Noah Jensen, the field regroup on the back bumper of Rothfuss. At the race’s midway point, Moser was able to take second place from Long, as AY Schilling, and AJ Stroup ran in the top five. On lap number 13, Moser took the top spot from Rothfuss who then had to contend with Long, Schilling and Stroup. Coming to the checkered flag, Moser was in control of the field, while Rothfuss, Long and Schilling battled for second. Rothfuss drifted high coming out of turn four, allowing Long to finish second, Schilling was third, Rothfuss was fourth and AJ Stroup was fifth. Sixth through tenth were Robert Tressler, Brad Myers, Noah Jensen, Rich Fye, and Jason Smith. Heat races were won by Schilling and Moser.

Levi Brungard of Mill Hall and Denny Rinehimer led the field of 270 Micro Sprints to the green flag. Rinehimer took the lead with fourth place starter Bobby Sanso of Jersey Shore on his back bumper. The field began to encounter lapped traffic by the completion of lap number five with Rinehimer leading Sanso, Skeetz Hockenbrock, Jeffrey Weaver and Hunter Zimmerman. By the completion of lap number nine Weaver took the runner up position from Sanso.

Rinehimer led every lap and appeared to be on his way to claiming his first win of the season. As the driver entered the third and fourth turns, misfortune struck as the car suffered a mechanical issue to bring out the caution. Weaver inherited the lead with one lap to go and held off the challenges from Sanso, Hockenbrock Whitesel and Nick Whitesel. Sixth through tenth were Gary Keister, Logan Hammaker, Matt Dixson, Tom Quiggle and Dan Wertman. Heat races were won by Nick Whitesel, Weaver, and Rinehimer.

Derek Swartz of Jersey Shore started on the pole of the 600 Micro Sprint feature event. Schwartz led the first lap with Cody Hauck, Jeffrey Weaver, Ethan Spots and Sierra Hauck in the top five. On lap number four, Spotts moved into the third position. At the midway point of the race, the top five remained unchanged. Swartz led every lap but did not want to see a caution which occurred on lap number 12 when Josh Beamer’s car stopped. The restart gave Cody Hauck an opportunity, but Schwartz was flawless on the restart and went on to claim his first career win over Hauck, Spotts, Sierra Hock and Timmy Bittner. Weaver finished sixth, Dustin Roberts was seventh, Dexter Strawser was eighth, Mitchell Holden was ninth, and Josh Beamer finished tenth. Heat race winners were Sierra Hauck and Ethan Spotts.

On the opening lap of the four cylinder feature event, pole sitter Dylan Craft rolled his car several times in turn number two. The driver was uninjured. Upon the restart, Scott Englert took the lead over John Bower with Maddox Smith, Keith Haagen and Jimmy Moyer in the top five. Smith made the pass for the lead by the completion of lap number five as eighth place starter Blake Snyder moved into the top five. On lap number eight, Smith led Snyder, Moyer, and Tim Raup. As Smith exited turn number four and appeared to be on his way to victory, something broke in the motor allowing Blake Snyder to take the win over Raup, Moyer, Sam Creveling and Corey Small. Smith crossed the finish line in sixth, followed by Mike Helper, Skyler Witchley, Joey Snook, and Kyle Strouse. Heat races were won by Small, Emily Brouse and Tim Raup.

The speedway returns on Friday with a five division show presented by Murray Motors featuring the Limited Late Models, Pro Stocks, 270 Micro Sprints, 600 Micro Sprints, and the 4-Cylinders. Gates will open at 5PM, Hot laps at 7PM and Racing at 7:30PM. For more information, visit www.clintoncountyspeedway.com or visit the speedway on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Macedo gets redemption with Fremont victory; Weaver earns 60th win; Miller tames trucks

Saturday, June 5, 2021

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Just 24 hours earlier Cole Macedo was headed to another 410 sprint car victory. But, a malfunctioning mag box cost him the win on the last corner of the last lap. Macedo scored some payback Saturday, June 5 at Fremont Speedway, leading all 30 laps of the feature for his second victory of the year at “The Track That Action Built” on Vision Quest/NAPA of Northern Ohio Night.

The victory, coupled with a second place showing at Attica Raceway Park on Friday, has Macedo, from Lemoore, California, leading the points at Attica and pretty close if not leading the points at Fremont Speedway and now with the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group.

“I was pretty down and out last night. Leading that whole thing and a mag box taking us out of the race. I’m really glad we could come back tonight and overcome what we did last night and win. This #23s side board (on the wing) for Frankie Kerr...the last time that car won was here at Fremont. Glad we could keep that going. My guys have been doing a great job lately. It’s all the hard work that Steven and Mike (Linder) put in during the week and Cody, Sam…all the guys…it’s just a team effort. When you prepare race cars like the Linders do and put all that hard work into it I don’t see how you can’t have success. I’m lucky to be behind the wheel. Mike and Steven get the car so good every night that I can really work on myself. I feel like I’m not running it as hard as I did in the past this year. I’ve slowed myself down and probably run only 80-90 percent most of the race. My car’s good enough if I see a nose I can key it up to 110,” said Macedo of his Fremont Auto Parts, Grant Decker Construction, Linder’s Speed Equipment, Gill Construction, CK Mechanical, ML Graphics, Diversified Builders backed #18.

Three time and defending Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 track champion Paul Weaver survived a late race caution and led all 25 laps of the A-main to score his first Fremont win of the year. It is Weaver’s 60th career victory at the track, placing him in a tie for fourth on the all-time win list with Mark Keegan and John Ivy. It was Weaver’s fifth overall victory of 2021 as he owns four at Attica.

The victory also pads Weaver’s lead in the NAPA of Bryan 305 ASCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales.

“I haven’t raced every time at Fremont this year. Tying Mark Keegan who is a legend and John Ivy who just had a birthday today and is still younger than me is pretty neat,” said Weaver beside his B&B Drain Service, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Adkins Motorsports, Weaver Performance backed machine.

Jamie Miller dominated the 20-lap Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature, leading all 20 laps for his 24th career Fremont victory.

“Ron Miller built this thing and it is so easy to drive. It was like on cruise control,” said Miller beside his Fostoria Mod Shop backed truck.

Ryan Broughton and Macedo brought the field to green for the 30-lap Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints A-main. Following a caution on the start, when the green flew so did Macedo as DJ Foos drove into second with Broughton, Landon LaLonde, Craig Mintz and Brian Smith in tow.

Macedo caught the back of the pack by lap nine and Foos began eating into his nearly two second lead. Third running LaLonde spun on lap 11 to put Foos, a two-time Fremont winner, on Macedo’s rear bumper. Once again though Macedo drove away on the restart but another caution a lap later stopped his momentum.

Once the green flew Macedo pulled away to a two second lead with 10 laps to go over Foos, Mintz, and a charging Byron Reed. Macedo was able to pick his way through traffic and took the checkers over Foos, Mintz, Reed and Broughton.

Weaver jumped right into the lead at the drop of the green for the 25-lap 305 A-main over Seth Schneider, Matt Foos, Larry Kingseed Jr. and Jamie Miller. Only a couple of cautions early kept the field close. When the green flew on lap seven, Weaver pulled away from Schneider as Kingseed battled with Miller and Foos for third.

Only a caution with three laps remaining kept the field close but Weaver was too strong on the restart and drove away for the win over Schneide3r, Foos, Alvin Roepke and Brandon Moore.

Miller and Brad Mitten paced the field for the 20-lap dirt truck A-main with Miller gaining the advantage when the green flew. Miller built a nearly five second lead before a rash of cautions at the half-way point. When the green flew with eight laps to go Miller had company in Shawn Valenti who had his hands full with Jeff Babcock, Mitten, Cody Laird and Jim Holcomb.

Miller cruised to the win over Valenti, Babcock, Laird and Mitten.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, June 12 as night #2 of Ohio Sprint Speedweek featuring the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobil 1. The 305 sprints will also be in competition on Kistler Engines and Kistler Racing Products Night.

First Skagit 360 Win for Goetz

6/5/21

Alger, WA – On a rapid night of racing at Skagit Speedway, Chase Goetz collected his first win in the Budweiser 360 Sprint division in a highly entertaining main event. Nick Evans, Rick Smith and Mike Macpherson joined him as winners on the night.

While Goetz led every lap of the Budweiser 360 Sprint main event, it was never a walk in the park. Brock Lemley hounded Chase lap after lap as Chase had heavy traffic to deal with in the mid portion of the race. Robbie Price would get by Lemley with around 5 laps left and began applying his own pressure but Goetz continually found his way past slower cars to keep the lead until Lemley tipped over after the white flag flew, setting up a two lap dash to determine the winner. Goetz executed a perfect restart and would drive away to the win ahead of Price and Jason Solwold. Colton Heath set quick time while heat race wins went to Jesse Schlotfeldt and Cam Smith. Goetz has now won main events in three different divisions at Skagit Speedway (360, Sportsman Sprints and Focus Midgets).

The NW Focus Midgets ran an amazing 25 lap main event with no stoppages, with the lead pack dicing and slicing through lapped cars without incident nearly the whole way. Jared Peterson led early before leaving the low side open for Nick Evans to sneak by on the bottom of turn four to take the lead on lap 10. Evans tried to get away, but both Peterson and Garrett Thomas stayed right with Nick as the three absolutely tore through slower traffic, lapping nearly half the field while changing lines nearly every corner to avoid incident. Despite many attempts from both Peterson and Thomas, Evans would not give the lead back as he went on for his series leading seventh win of 2021 and second of the year at Skagit Speedway. Tristin Thomas was quick time. Heat wins went to Evans, Travis Jacobson, G Thomas and Alex Peck. Kyle Hanson won the B Main. 25 cars total signed in for competition.

Rick Smith cashed in for his first win of the year in the Skagit Aggregates Modifieds. Smith used the low groove out of turn two to pull ahead of Craig Moore on lap 10 and would never give the top spot back in bringing the Team Geritol modified to Sage Fruit Victory Lane. Moore rode the rim to a second place finish with Adam Holtrop running third. Holtrop and Smith won the heats.

“Big Money” Mike Macpherson is 3 for 3 in the enhanced purse Outlaw Tuner mains on the year after passing Howard Vos on the backstretch with five laps to go in the 17 lap Tuner main. Vos tried to catch back up but settled for second ahead of Roger Burt. It was Jon Gunderson and Burt triumphant in heat race action.

BLAKE BOWER TOPS LARGEST WMR FIELD IN SERIES HISTORY FOR VENTURA VICTORY

VENTURA, CALIF. (June 5, 2021) – Blake Bower of Brentwood topped the largest field in the young history of the Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction, winning Saturday’s return to Ventura Raceway in a 20-lap feature. The victory came over an 18-car field and the first event at the 1/5th mile since 2019.

WMR entertained with three heat races, won by Randi Pankratz of Atascadero, Fresno’s David Prickett, and Bower. Santa Paula’s Megan Moorhead lined up on the pole in the #17 Spike Chassis alongside Bower in the #9 Spike Chassis. Bower went around the outside of Moorhead to lead lap one. Prickett lined up third but fell to fourth at the start. He passed Pankratz for third on the outside then moved past Moorhead for second.

Mountain View’s Antonia Boscacci stopped in turn four to require a caution with Peoria, AZ’s Cory Brown narrowly avoiding her. Boscacci then spun in turn two to end her race prematurely on lap five.

Kala Kellinoi and Camarillo’s Joey Bishop got hooked together exiting turn two, sending Kellinoi into a tip over. Both were able to continue.

Bower was able to pull away from Prickett on the restart, taking his second consecutive victory in the championship. Pankratz finished third followed by Brown and Moorhead.

Western Midget Racing continues this Friday night at the Pombo/Sargent Classic, racing with the NARC King of the West 410 Sprint Cars at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif.

FEATURE WIN NUMBER SIX FOR SANDERS IN OCEAN SPRINTS IN WATSONVILLE

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (June 5, 2021) – Justin Sanders won his sixth Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo feature as the calendar rolled into the sixth month of the year, with the Aromas driver leading all 30-laps of the feature to extend his points lead on Friday night. Sanders’ win was part of a four-division show at the Ocean Speedway in Watsonville at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds.

Salinas’ Keith Day, Jr. blitzed to a new track record in time trials with an 11.122 second lap, topping the 11.183 record previously set by Brad Furr. Sanders also timed in underneath the record and ranked second in qualifying. Both drivers were unable to grab heat race wins but qualified for the dash, where Day topped Sanders to earn the pole position for the feature.

Sanders went around the outside of Day to lead the opening lap of the 30-lap contest, then encountered lapped traffic by lap four. Day battled with Concord’s Joey Ancona and Sebastopol’s Joey Myers, Jr. for the second position with the trio rolling the top of the racetrack through traffic. Burt Foland Jr. bounced off the backstretch wall while being lapped on lap 11. The bottleneck put Myers on the binders exiting turn four with Ancona hitting him in the right rear. Myers was able to return with a new tire but Ancona did not continue.

Hanford’s Zane Blanchard passed 2019 champion James Ringo of Morgan Hill for third on the restart. Bud Kaeding had a run on the inside to potentially advance past them both, but it was nullified when Geoffrey Grimm spun in turn two on lap 17. Nick Ringo retired from the race under the caution, surrendering seventh. James Ringo went the wrong direction on the restart, falling back to eighth position. Kaeding advanced to fourth on lap 21. Day spun from second position in turn four on lap 26. Day’s race then ended when he stopped in turn four for an additional yellow on lap 27.

Sanders charged ahead of Blanchard and Kaeding on the final restart, with Blanchard edging out Kaeding for second position at the stripe. 2020 Ocean Sprints champion Mitchell Faccinto finished fourth. Hanford’s DJ Netto overcame a flip in the first heat race to advance from 16th to fifth in the feature.

A 15-car Hobby Stock field entertained in their 20-lap feature with Rob Gallaher driving from 12th on the grid to victory lane. Norm Ayers led the opening lap with Joe Gallaher and Nick Silva driving past Scott Freeman for second and third respectively. Joe Gallaher then took the lead on lap four when Ayers slowed in turn four with a flat right front tire.

Joe Gallaher picked the outside of Nick Silva, with Silva going up the inside to lead lap five. Silva was making his first start since 2017 in the division. The caution flew on lap 10 for Adriane Frost up in smoke on the backstretch. Joe Gallaher used the restart to make a three-wide pass for the lead before Terry Campion spun in turn four for a yellow flag.

Silva grabbed the lead back on the following restart, leading lap 12. Rob Gallaher took over the top spot on lap 17. Joe Gallaher dove inside Silva for second but spun to bring out a caution, setting up a sprint to the finish. Jerry Skelton tagged Silva for second, sending him spinning into hard contact with Campion in turn four. After a lengthy caution for cleanup, Rob Gallaher cruised to the win ahead of Skelton, Freeman, Sam Kennedy, and Joe Gallaher.

Camarillo’s Tommy Velasquez III won the South Bay Dwarf Car 20-lap feature, leading 19-laps of the race. Mark Biscardi led lap one before Velasquez drove past on the outside on the backstretch. A restart on lap four allowed Nick Velasquez to take over second. Brandon Wiley of Santa Maria made his first Ocean appearance in several years and rounded out the podium. Sean Catucci and Biscardi finished fourth and fifth.

DJ Keldsen dominated the Four Banger feature after firing off from the eighth and final starting position. Watsonville’s Richard Mitchell led the first two circuits before Keldsen took over. Travis VanGilder had a significant crash when he bounced off the front stretch wall and was t-boned by Mitchell. Both drivers were uninjured. Keldsen crossed the line first but was disqualified in post-race, allowing Kate Beardsley to be credited with the win over incoming points leader Tony Gullo and Nicole Beardsley.

Ocean Speedway will host the Pombo/Sargent Classic on Friday June 11 with the NARC King of the West 410 Sprint Cars. IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Mods, and Western Midget Racing will also compete. Tickets are available at www.OceanSpeedway.com or at the gate.

Jay Russell Tops the Field at US 36 Raceway with United Rebel Sprint Series

OSBORN, Missouri (June 4, 2021) – Nineteen cars were in attendance for Friday night’s POWRi Drive to Zero United Rebel Sprint Series debut at US 36 Raceway in Osborn, Missouri. The Missouri weather offered hot conditions, and the racing was even more fierce!

Jay Russell and Jack Potter set the pace for the 25-lap feature event atop the high-banked oval. Russell powered to the lead on lap one, but not without heat from Lincoln, Nebraska’s Stu Snyder on the bottom. Kenny Potter powered to second and began charging for Russell when the caution flew for a car spinning in turn four. The restart saw Snyder and K. Potter dueling for the runner-up position, but not before another caution flew for a car slowing down the backstretch.

When the race resumed, it was Snyder challenging Russell for the lead around the high side this time, but the caution would fly again. The restart provided excellent side-by-side action amongst the top three cars, as Snyder slid to the high side with Russell and K. Potter just to the inside. Russell would prevail back to the lead position. Arcadia, Oklahoma’s Ty Williams began his march forward moving into the fourth position. A caution flew over the field once more for a car spinning in turn four.

When the green flag flew again over the field, K. Potter and Snyder dueled for the runner-up position, meanwhile Williams and Des Moines, Iowa’s Mike Houseman, Jr. challenged each other for fourth. The top six cars were within a straightaway from each other, giving the fans a show well worth the entry. K. Potter moved to second and began a charge on Russell before taking the lead. Snyder would move into second around the high side, but not for long as Russell powered back by Snyder and Potter.

Lap traffic bunched the top six positions back together, all within striking distance for a challenge to the lead. In lap traffic, Snyder would get back to second. Jay Russell went on to win the barn-burner of a feature event and the United Rebel Sprint Series first ever appearance at US 36 Raceway. Stu Snyder finished second, Kenny Potter third, Mike Houseman, Jr. fourth, and Ty Williams rounding out the top-five.

Heat race victories went to Kenny Potter, Kyler Johnson, and Stu Snyder. Jay Russell prevailed in the 6-lap dash for cash. The Keizer Aluminum Wheels hard-charger was awarded to Josh Poe, who finished 11th after advancing 5 positions.

On Saturday, June 5th, the Drive to Zero United Rebel Sprint Series Presented by Mel Hambelton Ford Racing heads to Bethany Speedway in Bethany, Missouri. Saturday’s event will mark yet another first appearance for the United Rebel Sprint Series.

Weir Wins Sprint Feature; Massingill Stars in Midgets;

Losh Tops Modifieds; Hobbs Is Street Stock Victor and

Headley Jr. Rules Hornets In ‘Monkey Wrench Mania’

At Gas City I-69 Speedway Friday Night

GAS CITY, Ind., June 5 – Scotty Weir had to fight off all comers for five restarts in the 25-lap non-wing sprint car feature Friday night at Gas City I-69 Speedway. Each restart erased his lead, but the Marion, Ind.-based driver was up to the challenge and led every lap to beat Shane Cockrum of Benton, Ill. to the checkered by 1.541 seconds and score a popular victory.

Bryce Massingill of Troy, Ohio took the lead from polesitter Ian Creager of Covington, Ohio on lap four and was 0.437 of a second ahead of Creager at the checkered on lap 25 of the USAC Midwest Thunder SpeeD2 midget feature. That series was an added attraction to the “Monkey Wrench Mania” program that featured five different divisions but was still completed by 11:30 p.m.

Fans who wondered when defending modified track champion Derek Losh would win his first modified feature at Gas City in 2021 got their answer, as the Rensselaer, Ind.-based driver won that 20-lapper by a whopping 8.846 seconds over Dillon Nusbaum of Warsaw, Ind.

The street stock and hornet divisions each had 15-lap features. Lee Hobbs of Mitchell, Ind., became the third different street stock feature winner in as many races for that division so far this year at Gas City. It’s a different story in the hornet division, as James Headley Jr. of Wabash, Ind., has won all three hornet features so far this year, including the one on Friday night in which he led every lap.

It was Weir’s first feature victory at the quarter-mile dirt track since May 20, 2016 when he beat Brady Bacon of Winchester, Ind., to win a USAC AMSOIL national sprint car feature.

Weir’s DRC chassis with a Pedersen Chevy engine arrives at the race track each week on the back of an open trailer instead of a transporter, and it has fewer sponsor decals than other cars. Weir, 36, a shock builder by trade, has been very close to a victory many times at Gas City in recent years but somehow hasn’t landed in victory lane with the No. 4P, which is wrenched by Ryan Pedersen of Fortville, Ind., and sponsored by Red’s Racing Engines, Indy Race Parts and AFCO Shocks.

Weir started second and beat all comers into the first turn lap after lap. At first he held off polesitter Tyler Kendall of Greenfield, Ind. But on lap five Kendall went over the cushion in Turn 2, spun, and had to go to the rear of the field, giving Cockrum second place.

Cockrum ran the middle line just like Weir used. He would get close in Turn 2, but Weir would pad his lead on the backstretch and Turn 3. Near the end Cockrum tried the low groove but he never could make a pass and Weir went on to post the victory over the Flying Fireman’s High Asspirations Farm DRC Foxco.

Matt McDonald of Brownsburg, Ind. finished third. Defending track champion Max Adams of Marion, Ind., stepped into the famous Paul Hazen No. 57 and brought it home fourth followed by Aaron Leffel of Springfield, Ohio and Kendall.

Travis Hery of Hilliard, Ohio won the $100 HARF “Hard Charger” award, improving from 14th to eighth in the sprint feature.

In pre-race festivities the track honored sprint car driver Zack Pretorius of Yorktown, Ind., who missed his graduation ceremony from Madison-Grant High School in Fairmount, Ind., on Friday night in order to race at Gas City. Pretorius drives the family-owned No. 9Z Maxim Claxton Chevy sponsored by Oak Motors of Indianapolis, The Tin Plate of Elwood, Ind., and Benic Enterprises of Marion, Ind. He earned the track’s sprint car Rookie of the Year honors last year after nine karting championships.

Unfortunately the 18-year-old driver had a rough night after that, as he flipped twice. The first time he flipped in Turn 4 with three laps down in the third sprint heat. The team made repairs and Pretorius was able to start the feature, but then he was involved in a four-car accident in Turn 4 with 17 laps down which also saw Landon Simon of Tipp City, Ohio get upside down. Chase Jones of Greenwood, Ind., and Aaron Davis of Windfall, Ind., were the other two drivers who were involved. All escaped injury.

Like Weir, Massingill had to work for his D2 midget victory in the Creative Labels No. 12M. There was only one yellow in the first half of the feature but there were three in the second half of the race. Still, Massingill was able to hold off Creager, who ran directly behind him most of the race, and hold on for his first feature win ever at the Grant County track.

Cory Guingrich of Celina, Ohio dipped under Adam Taylor of DeMotte, Ind., working lap 23 to finish third. Taylor, who started 11th and used the top groove to break into the top five around the halfway mark, placed fourth. Jacob Denney of Galloway, Ohio both started and finished fifth.

No one had anything for Losh in the modified feature, as his Superior Sales and Service, R and R Transmission and Aggressive Graphics Longhorn No. 21L with a Mullins engine was the class of the field Friday night.

Nusbaum passed Clayton Bryant of Yoder, Ind., for second on lap five and finished in the runner-up position. Zeke McKenzie of Claypool, Ind., passed Bryant a lap later and went on to finish third. Bub Roberts of Warren, Ind. both started and finished fourth. Aaron Orr of Columbia City, Ind., rounded out the top five and Bryant held on for sixth.

Hobbs started fourth in the street stock feature and took the lead on the frontstretch from polesitter Andy Bishop of Gas City on lap seven following a restart. The only other leader was Chris Hunter of Kokomo, Ind., who started second and led the first two laps.

Ervin Turner of Marion, Ind. spun on the frontstretch with one lap down but regrouped to finish second after he passed Bishop for that position on lap 14. Bishop held on for third. James Headley of Marion, Ind., was fourth and young Dalton Bishop of Gas City rounded out the top five. The winning car was a Hobbs chassis sponsored by Bilstein Shocks.

Headley Jr. completely dominated the hornet feature in the No. 00, which is sponsored by Dudding’s Heating and Cooling and Shrouts Towing. There was a knock-out, three-car battle for second between Eric Solms of Marion, Ind.; Aaron Tatman of Lafayette, Ind., and Eddie Tucker Jr. of Troy, Ohio. Solms had the position until his Silver Bullet lost its right-rear wheel in Turn 2 with seven laps complete, and had to be towed back to the pits on a wrecker.

That gave the runner-up spot to Tatman, who finished in that position followed by Tucker; Alison Butler of Anna, Ohio, and Tracey Runion of Wilkinson, Ind.

Earlier in the evening promoter Jerry Gappens introduced the track’s new mascot to the kids on hand. Lilac in color, his name is Monkey Wrench, for whom the night was named, and he was an immediate hit with the youngsters.

This coming Friday, June 11, Gas City I-69 Speedway will be the next-to-last stop during the 17th annual NOS Energy Drink Indiana Midget Week, as the USAC NOS Energy Drink national midgets join the track’s regular non-wing sprint cars for an exciting doubleheader.

Justin Long wins the 19th Annual Keysor Memorial. Heyder, Sherman, and Simon score victories at Limaland

6/4/2021

by Gerry Keysor

After a week off due to weather, fans were anxious to see some great racing at Limaland Motorsports Park, and they were not disappointed. 4 different divisions took to the quarter mile of thunder, with No. 26 Justin Long winning the $1000 to win 19th Annual Keysor Memorial feature for the Bud Thunderstocks, No. 65 Todd Sherman bagging his 51st career Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modified A Main, No. 10 Rolly Heyder winning the Dirt Track Truck Series A Main, and No. 23S Kyle Simon scoring the Non Wing Sprint Car feature.

The Bud Thunderstocks kicked off the nights racing action for their 18 lap Keysor Memorial A Main, honoring the memory of The Keysor family members that have passed on. No. J2 Rob Trent, and No. 26 Justin Long led the field to green with Long using the bottom to grab the early race lead. The caution flag would wave on lap 3 for No. 92 Brandon McDaries spinning in turn 4. No. 22T Tony Anderson had alraedy made his way from his 6th starting spot up to 3rd before the caution waved. One lap after the restart, Anderson slipped by the No. 7C of Jordan Conover to grab the 2nd spot. Caution would wave again for McDaries on lap 5 spinng a 2nd time and ending his night. On lap 12, Anderson would get b y Long for the lead, but Long would muscle back past in turns 3 and 4 with some contact, but both drivers were able to continue on. Long would survive 3 more cautions and restarts to pickup his first Keysor Memorial victory, Anderson was 2nd, No. 57 Jeffrey Jessup 3rd, Conover 4th, and No. 74 Craig Dippman completed the top 5.

Next up were the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds for their 20 lap A Main. No. 11S Blake Spalding, and No. 34X Shane O'Connor would make up the front row. O'Connor would grab the early lead. Caution would fly on lap 3 for debris on the racetrack. On the restart, O'Connor would resume his lead, with No. 65 Todd Sherman slipping by to grab 3rd from hos 5th place starting spot. On lap 7, Sherman began his assault on No. 19B Brandon Ordway for the 2nd spot, getting by for good on lap 8. At this point, O'Connor held a 3 second lead. By lap 12 Sherman cut that lead to 2 seconds, and on lap 16 Sherman grabbed the lead from O' Connor, and cruied to his 51st Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modified A Main win over O'Connor, Ordway, No. 01 Bryce Nichols, and No. 22T Tony Anderson,

Next up were the Dirt Track Truck Series in their 2nd visit to Limaland for 2021. No. 21 Dewey Powell, and No. 10 Rolly Heyder led the field to green with Heyder taking the lead. Powell would hound Heyder the entire 15 laps and thru several cautions and restarts, but Heyder would hold him off, grabbing the win over Powell, No. 82 Kevin Knittle, No. 99 Tony Anderson, and No. 99W Vince Wagoner.

Wrapping up the evening's racing action were the always exciting Non Wing Sprint Cars. No. 82 Mike "Magic Man" Miller, and No. 53 "The Quiet Riot" Steve Little would bring the field to green. 2 early cautions for the 97X of Reed Hurst spinning would slow the field, but No. 23s Kyle Simon would live up to his nickname the "Covington Catfish" by bottom feeding and running on the low side of the track to make his way up to 2nd by lap 4 and setting his sights on race leader No. 0 Steve Irwin. Simon would make his move on lap 16, making contact with Irwin in the process, but both drivers would continue on. Simon would hang on to grab the win over Irwin, with No. 33W Matt Westfall 3rd, Little 4th, and No. 18 Dallas Hewitt charging from 11th to 5th.

Lee County MOWA Show Belongs to Gennetten

Donnellson, Iowa - Ayrton Gennetten scored his second Morrow Brothers Ford MOWA Sprint Car Series victory in as many starts, at Lee County (IA) Speedway Friday night.

After earning a second place starting position due to the feature redraw, Gennetten was able to jump out in front of the field to a commanding lead. In a 25-lap affair that only saw the field clump back up following a lap 18 incident with Knoxville, Iowa’s Riley Goodno getting upside down, Gennetten never once faced a challenge.

A restart on lap 18 was what helped secure the victory for Gennetten, as he had handily worked his way through lapped traffic, taking over all but the top five runners. As the checkers fell over the field, Ayrton Gennetten pocketed the $3,000 payday followed by Jake Neuman, Terry McCarl (from eighth), Chris Martin and Tasker Phillips.

The Morrow Brothers Ford MOWA Sprint Car Series is back in action this Sunday, June 6 at Jacksonville (IL) Speedway.

The finish:

3G Ayrton Gennetten [2]; 2. 3N - Jake Neuman [1]; 3. 24 - Terry McCarl[8]; 4. 44 - Chris Martin [4]; 5. 7T - Tasker Phillips; 6. 21BP - Brinton Marvel [5]; 7. 42 - Andy Bishop [3]; 8. 79J - Jacob Patton [12]; 9. 51J - Colton Fisher [10]; 10. 31 - Zach Daum [9]; 11. 13 - Brayden Gaylord [18]; 12. 41 - Noah Samuel [17]; 13. 99W - Korey Weyant [14]; 14. 71M - Caden Englehart [16]; 15. 10S - Jeremy Standridge [19]; 16. 9 - Daniel Bergquist [11]; 17. 22 - Riley Goodno [15]; 18. 84 - Ben Wagoner [13]; 19. 17A - Austin McCarl [6]; DNS 50 - Paul Nienhiser, 84H - Brandon Hanks

 

 

Reed gets last lap, last corner 410 win after 2 year drought at Attica

Friday, June 4, 2021

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – It was a veteran move by 48-year-old Byron Reed. Stalk the young driver and use lapped cars to make your move. Reed passed Cole Macedo in the last corner of the last lap to score his 43rd career 410 sprint victory at Attica Raceway Park Friday on Edward Jones of Clyde/Mike Neill Financial Advisor Night presented by Integrity Car and Truck Sales. It was Reed’s first victory at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant since 2019.

“In that situation it’s always better to be in second. There wasn’t many cars here tonight…usually in the feature lapped traffic comes into play but I really wasn’t sure with this few of cars. Right at the end there was just enough lapped traffic…it got to where the lapped cars were going good around the bottom. They were almost the same speed as I was running the top. I think he abandoned the top probably feeling the same way and he got kind of blocked a little bit and I went where he wasn’t,” said Reed of his Kistler Engines backed #5.

“This feels pretty good. I still feel like…I love Attica first of all…I still feel like I can do it here and at Fremont. I wish my mom and dad could have been here tonight but my son’s here and rest of my crew, Kurt and Kevin and Kent so that’s good,” added the track’s eight time champion.

Big picture for Macedo though, as he came into the night leading the Attica points and a second place run on Mid-Season Championship Night pads his lead. He also is in contention for the All-Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group.

Wooster, Ohio’s Doug Drown needed a change of luck. So, he changed his late model’s number to 777, the number his grandfather and dad carried. It worked as the former Attica champion drove to his 29th career late model victory.

“I never carried that family thing on and our season has been crap since Florida. It’s been a struggle. We bought this car off Matt Irey a couple of months ago and I have it for Charlie Duncan to drive and he said basically just go ahead and put 777 on it and maybe we’ll change our luck and sure enough it worked,” said Drown beside his Ely Road Reel, Joyride Transport, 89 Homes, ABR Farms, Wooster Glass, Malcuit Racing Engines backed machine.

“I really wasn’t pushing it too hard…I didn’t know how hard I could even push this thing. When we had that purple Swartz car we pretty much dominated here. We put that same set-up on this thing and obviously it got the job done. My guys worked their tails off because we actually didn’t decide to race this. I sold my Rocket on Wednesday and everybody had late nights on Thursday and today all day. So my Uncle Scott, Charlie, Danny, DJ Miller, my dad, Marvin…definitely happy for everyone that helps us,” added Drown.

Fremont, Ohio’s Jamie Miller knew he had a good car at the drop of the green flag for the Fremont Fence 305 Sprint feature. Miller, a two time Attica champion, charged from eighth to third on the opening lap utilizing the extreme high line and took the lead on lap three. Though five time track champion Paul Weaver drove from 11th top second and closed the final two laps, Miller was too strong and scored his third victory of the season and the 30th of his career at Attica.

“This thing was a rocket ship. To go from eighth to the lead in just a few laps…I could tell on the car as soon as I got on it that it squatted and went. We found a couple of things we kind of got away from last year and we’re kind of getting back that way and this car likes it. We will see what happens tomorrow at Fremont…we’re going to get the new car out and try it,” said Miller beside his Smitty’s Pizza, JLH General Contractor, Queen of Clean, Rohr Total Lawn Care, Sonic Hauling, Phil Rister, Sloopy’s Pizza, Reedtown Tavern, Crown Battery, Schreiner Farms, Roberts & Sons Contracting, Fostoria Mod Shop, Maxim Chassis, Keizer Wheels, Kenny Kalb Farms backed #26.

Miller’s win coupled with Weaver’s second place finish tightens up the battle for title of the NAPA of Bryan 305 AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales. And with double points on the line, Miller pads his advantage in the track’s points as well.

Macedo and Reed brought the field to green for the 30-lap Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprint feature and Macedo established his domination early, pulling to a commanding lead over Reed, Craig Mintz, Chris Andrews and Kyle Capodice. Macedo’s lead was nearly three seconds when Andrews had a tire let go on lap 16. On the restart Macedo blasted the cushion and drove away once again from Reed, Mintz, Capodice and Stuart Brubaker.

With five laps to go Macedo encountered a pair of cars battling side by side at the rear of the field. It appeared Macedo was having some sort of mechanical issue and that allowed Reed to close. Coming to the checkers Reed got under Macedo and drove to the win. Mintz, Brubaker and Travis Phil rounded out the top five.

Drown and Devin Shiels paced the field for the 25-lap A for the Dirt Nerds Podcast/Propane.com UMP Late Models and the pair raced side by side the first give laps until a caution. That battle resumed once the green came back out and continued until another caution with 10 laps to go. On the restart Drown pulled away.

The battle for second was entertaining with Mike Bores wrestling away the spot from Shiels on lap 21. Irey and Rusty Schlenk rounded out the top five.

Luke Griffith and Tyler Shullick battled for the lead at the drop of the green for the 25-lap Fremont Fence 305 A-main but it was Miller who jumped to the track’s extreme high line and vaulted from eighth to third. Miller took second on lap two and drove around Griffith for the lead on lap three just prior to a caution.

On the restart Miller checked out while Dustin Stroup moved into second and Shullick grabbing third. A caution on lap 10 saw the running order of Miller, Stroup, Shullick, Mike Keegan and Seth Schneider. Back to back cautions on lap 16 and 17 prevented Miller from driving away from the field. One of the cautions was for second running Stroup. On the restart, Miller pulled away from Keegan with 11th starter Weaver in third.

While Keegan and Weaver battled hard for second, Miller continued to hold a five car length advantage. Weaver finally took second with two laps to go and closed on Miller but ran out of time. Miller took the win over Weaver, Keegan, Schneider and Shullick.

Finding speed from his fifth-place starting spot, Sammy Swindell would not waste any time on his march to the front of the pack. Grabbing the lead early Swindell would not look back on his way to adding yet another feature win to his historic racing career. Josh Grady would move up from starting fourth to placing in the runner-up position.

McCutcheon and Ziehl would battle fiercely for almost the entire twenty-five lap feature event with McCutcheon gaining a slight advantage to claim third, leaving Ziehl to finish fourth as Lorne Wofford would race from seventh to round out the Vado Speedway Park top-five finishers for the POWRi Desert Wing Sprint Series presented by MVT Services.

Price-Miller and Pospisil Capture Big Payouts During Ben Nothdurft Memorial at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (May 31, 2021) - Parker Price-Miller and Tad Pospisil each earned a hefty payday on Monday evening during the Ben Nothdurft Memorial at Huset's Speedway.

Price-Miller won the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association and Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig main event to garner his first career triumph at the track, which paid $7,500. Pospisil bested a field of 41 drivers to score $6,000 for picking up the RepairableVehicles.com Tri-State Late Models victory as well as $2,000 in bonus money, which came as $50 per lap led during the 40-lap A Main.

Justin Henderson led the first 20 laps of the 30-lap sprint car feature with Price-Miller a close second for most of it. Tim Kaeding took second on Lap 5 before Price-Miller regained the position on Lap 8. The top three ran in the same positions for the next dozen laps. A lap after the second-to-final restart Price-Miller made the bottom work to narrowly take the lead on Lap 21. He then moved to the favored high groove and held onto the top spot for the final 10 laps.

"I'm really happy for Guy and really happy for myself," Price-Miller said during a Victory Lane interview in reference to car owner Guy Forbrook, who he recently started driving for. "It's been a really trying year. I'm thankful for the opportunity the Forbrook Motorsports team has given me. I'm still getting comfortable with the car and Guy is getting comfortable with me.

"We were okay at the beginning and then my car came alive. It was pretty top dominate, but I could peel off and go places other guys couldn't. My car was a rocket ship. I just bided my time. That was a really patient race."

Kaeding passed Henderson for second place on Lap 24. Henderson rounded out the podium with Brooke Tatnell placing fourth and Giovanni Scelzi fifth.

Tatnell and Austin McCarl set quick time in their groups before Riley Goodno, Cody Hansen, Scelzi and Henderson each won a heat race.

Although Pospisil led the duration of the Tri-State Late Models main event, the race wasn't decided until the checkered flag was waved. Jesse Glenz drove into second early and once Pospisil reached traffic on Lap 9 Glenz closed the gap dramatically. A lap later he was within four tenths of a second.

The first 22 laps went caution-free before five cautions slowed the ensuing nine laps. The final 10 laps went without incident and Pospisil maintained his narrow lead to win by 0.676 of a second.

"My signal guy was close the whole time," he said. "I felt the bottom was wearing out, but we led so many laps down there. When you lead so many on the bottom you don't want to leave the door open. It was a great race track. A few too many yellows for my liking, but we got the job done."

Glenz, who ran the top groove and closed to the rear bumper of Pospisil several times in the final laps, earned a runner-up result.

"It was a blast," he said. "Hats off to them for the win. It was obviously a great show for the fans. Hopefully we can come back next year."

Justin Zeitner advanced from ninth to post a third-place finish.

"This place is awesome," he said. "This is some of the most fun I've had in a race car in a long time."

Andrew Kosiski recorded a fourth-place outing and Scott Ward hustled from 18th to fifth.

James Giossi and Bill Leighton were quickest in their qualifying groups. Giossi, Pospisil, Rodney Sanders, Jake Neal, Kosiski and Glenz were the heat race winners. Chad Olsen and Leighton split the B Main victories.

The next event at Huset's Speedway is Sunday for I-29 RV SuperCenter Night featuring the Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig, the Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks and the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series.

PIRTEK Renegades

Crisp and gray was the order of the day as the PIRTEK Renegades invaded Viking Speedway in Alexandria on Saturday night, the second of the three-night holiday weekend swing for the UMSS. Fourteen winged sprinters checked in at the big half-mile, joining the dozen traditional who started their weekend the previous evening with Bryan Roach’s victory at I-94 Speedway. On Saturday, Roach kept cruising, picking up the win in the second of two qualifiers while Cam Schafer nabbed the win in the opening heat. On the winged side, it was Rick Schroeder and Mark Chevalier snaring the wins.

The night’s first feature saw Schafer bolt from his second row starting spot and into the lead within the first mile, leaving Jon Lewerer, Mike Mueller, Scott Brandt, Jeremy Kerzman, Nick DaRonco and Roach to figure out who would finish second. Schafer had built up a commanding lead before inexplicably losing power, rolling to a stop on the front stretch. The mystery gremlin wouldn’t allow the current points leader to continue, handing the top spot over to Lewerer. Back under green Lewerer showed the way but was under relentless pressure for the duration from Kerzman, who dogged the leader til the end. At the double checkers, Lewerer ran the near perfect race to deny Kerzman, picking up his third career Renegade sticker. Behind Kerzman, Mueller, DaRonco, and Roach comprised the rest of the top five.

For the wing finale, it was the Chase Viebrock show. “The New Richmond Nightmare” started on the pole and left no doubt regarding the fastest shoe of the night. Kerzman, doing double duty competing in both divisions, hopped from his traditional sprint to his winged mount and valiantly gassed around the big horse track, but made no progress reeling in the Wisconsin youngster. Chevalier worked his way up from sixth to third, but by the time he cracked the top three, Kerzman was half a straightaway ahead of him, while Viebrock was off racing in a separate zip code. With checkers waving, Viebrock had lapped up to the sixth place finisher with Kerzman a distant runner-up, his second bride’s maid finish of the night. Chevalier was strong in third, ahead of tight race for fourth, with Schroeder besting Owen Carlson.

The Western Renegades saw Adam Sobolik grab his third win of the summer and second in a row at Devils Lake. Hibbing Raceway hosted the Northern Renegades for Lance Solem’s winged victory. The PIRTEK Renegades return to Viking Speedway on Sunday to wrap up their holiday weekend with both the winged and traditional sprinters back in action.

May 30, 2021, Alexandria, MN

The PIRTEK Renegades of the Upper Midwest Sprintcar Series wrapped up their holiday weekend with another fast, furious and caution-free night of action at Viking Speedway. Traditional sprint heat race wins went to Cam Schafer and Scott Brandt, and Owen Carlson and Chase Viebrock grabbed wins for the wingers.

Scott Brandt and Mike Mueller paced the Traditional field to green for their weekend finale and the duo paced the field after the green as well, with Brandt working low and Mueller, breaking character and abandoning his customary catfish line, working the high side of the track. With just a few laps in, the high line gained speed while the low groove began to fade, with Mueller’s #87 showing the way. In a crisply run all-green affair, Mueller proved his adeptness and adaptability and he expertly worked his hotrod about a half lane below the cushion for a flag-to-flag victory. After running an astounding five consecutive races finishing either second or third, the Oak Grove hot shoe parked his ride in Rock Auto victory lane for the first time this season. Jeremy Kerzman picked up his third runner-up finish of the weekend ahead of Cam Schafer, Nick DaRonco and Scott Brandt.

In the winged division, it was a near carbon copy of the Saturday night event. Chase Viebrock, starting outside the second row, stomped the throttle at the green and swept around the front row of Owen Carlson and Carter Chevalier in the first set of turns, then set out into the night in his #50 winged beast. Third starting Mark Chevalier quickly advanced to second, but was unable to reel in Viebrock - who went on to win his second consecutive and third of the year. Chevalier crossed the stripe in second, chased by Rick Schroeder, Jeremy Kerzman, and Trevor Reding.

Elsewhere in Renegade Nation, Myles Tomlinson picked up his first win of the season for the Western Renegades in Minot, ND, at Nodak Speedway, and Teal Arnason bested the Northern Renegade field at Bemidji Speedway. The PIRTEK Renegades return to action at their home track, Cedar Lake Speedway, on Saturday, June 5.

 

 

Late move nets Andy Forsberg 5th career Hall Memorial on Sunday with SCCT

By Gary Thomas

Marysville, CA – May 30, 2021…Late race entertainment highlighted the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards debut at Marysville Raceway on Sunday evening. In the end it was Auburn’s Andy Forsberg who made the right moves to claim his fifth career Hall Memorial victory, taking home the $3,500 top prize.

It marked Forsberg’s second career Sprint Car Challenge Tour triumph and came aboard the familiar Friends & Family Racing/ Bushey Financial Services/ Pit Stop USA X1 mount. The veteran hounded leader Colby Copeland early on before making the exhilarating move for the lead just prior to the finish.

“To win another Mel and Marlyn Hall Memorial is pretty special and to do it in exciting fashion like that couldn’t have been better,” commented the 44-year-old former Goat Farmer. “Things got a little hairy in lapped traffic and that certainly made it a new race towards the end. My family and the Halls go way back so it’s always an honor just to run this race, let alone win it five different times. I want to thank this whole F&F X1 team and everyone that supports it.”

The initial 14-laps of the feature clicked off fast and furious and saw Copeland jump out to the lead with Forsberg hanging right there every step of the way through traffic. The middle stages of the race bogged down with a few yellows and one red flag period for Bobby Butler, who luckily emerged okay after a scary flip down the front stretch. When green flag laps finally clicked off again all eyes were turned towards camping buddies Forsberg and Sean Becker, who had a torrid battle for the runner up spot.

While Forsberg and Becker fought for second it allowed Copeland to rocket away to a sizable lead as the race wound down. Forsberg eventually came out on top of the race with Becker for P2 and then set his sights on the leader, who was stuck behind lapped traffic. With Copeland boxed in “Mr. Excitement” made his move and charged hard after the top spot. Heading into turn three coming for the white flag Forsberg sliced to the inside and made the pass as the crowd came to their feet. Copeland made another run at it and looked to have a chance in the final corners, but Forsberg hung tough and crossed the stripe for victory.

Copeland’s strong night ended in second, less than a car length from Forsberg at the finish. Despite not getting the win it was another stellar evening with SCCT for the Van Lare Steering Repair/ Bianchi Farms 5V machine. It was also Copeland’s second straight runner up effort with the tour. Becker capped an exceptional night of competition as well by crossing the line in third aboard the Monhoff Racing/ M&M Structures 35 Sprinter. It was nice to see the “Shark” back on the podium for the second time this season with SCCT.

Fremont’s Shane Golobic and Foresthill’s Ryan Robinson completed the top-five in the 35-lapper. Rounding out the top-10 were Tyler Thompson, Justyn Cox, Brad Bumgarner, Justin Sanders and Dylan Bloomfield. Windsor’s John Clark was the Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Award winner and went home with an extra $250 courtesy of Larry Antaya Motorsports.

The B-main went to Angelo Cornet, while the High Sierra Industries Dash was picked off by Colby Copeland, who earned an extra c-note from Roadside 24 Service. The four 10-lap heats were captured by Bobby Butler, Justyn Cox, Andy Forsberg and Sean Becker. Oregon traveler Tyler Thompson earned the $450 fast time award to start the night thanks to Bianchi Farms, in memory of Kyle Main Motorsports and Paul Olmsted Plastering.

The 20-lap IMCA Pepsi Sport Mod main event also brought the excitement and featured a last lap pass for the victory. Early on it was Buddy Olschowka and Jeremy Phillips who raced towards the front, as the Sport Mods had a picture-perfect surface to showcase their skills. Both Phillips and Olschowka eventually had issues arise and towards the end it become a two-man race between Phillip Shelby and Andrew Peckham.

Peckham looked high and low for a way by Shelby and when the white flag waved things got real as Petaluma announcer Ron Lingron would say. Peckham charged to the high-side of the bullring and drove around Shelby to nip him at the line in thrilling fashion. Shelby finished in second ahead of Jimmy Ford, Todd Cooper and Phillips who made a nice rebound. Heat races were pocketed by Peckham and Phillips.

Bacon bags $12k Waynesfield K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders/Patriot Sprint Tour Ron Kahle Jr. Memorial Race

Monday, May 31, 2001

By Brian Liskai

WAYNESFIELD, Ohio – Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon survived near catastrophe coming to the checkers and drove to a $12,000 pay day for the Ron Kahle Jr. Memorial at Waynesfield Raceway Park Sunday, May 30. The event pitted the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders against the Patriot Sprint Tour and drew a strong field of 33 360 c.i. winged sprint cars.

Bacon, the defending USAC National Sprint Car Champion, could see the checkers in the air as he exited turn four but two lapped cars ahead of him collided and starting flipping right in front of “the macho man” who took quick evasive action to avoid the melee. That set up a one lap dash to decide the huge pay day and Bacon easily drove away when the green came back out. The victory, Bacon’s second ever at “The Field,” came a week after he took a wild ride at Terra Haute that left him bruised and battered. Bacon also finished 9th in Saturday’s Little 500 to earn Rookie of the Race honors.

“After last week this is feels fantastic. I just love Waynesfield and the first win was for $3,000 so this might make this my favorite track with a $12,000 pay day. My wife and kids are at home watching and probably had a great time but not as good as I had,” joked the driver of the Hoffman Racing/Fatheadz Eyewear #69. “This is our first winged win with Hoffman’s and I have to thank John Cressman for lending us a fantastic running motor.”

Minster, Ohio’s Paul Dues held off a late race challenge from Matt Westfall and Korbyn Hayslett to score his first career Waynesfield win with the MPD Racing Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) worth $2,500.

“It feels good to finally get a win here. I can’t thank my sponsors enough, Moeller Brew Barn, Car Quest…all my great sponsors and my crew and my beautiful wife, mom and dad…there’s so many people that help this thing go. I didn’t hear much behind me so that made me feel comfortable. I just worried about a tire going down. We didn’t have a new tire to put on so it wasn’t good to begin with. I didn’t want to see those cautions but I felt good in the car,” said Dues.

Bacon and Greg Wilson brought the field to green for the 40-lap Ron Kahle Jr. Memorial Race with Wilson gaining the upper hand over Bacon, Dustin Daggett, Jared Zimbardi, Dallas Hewitt and Randy Hannagan. In just five laps the leaders were into traffic with Wilson maintaining a three car length advantage over Bacon.

A caution on lap eight gave Wilson a clear track and he continued to lead when the green reappeared over Bacon, Daggett, Zimbardi and Hannagan. The leaders found lapped traffic again by the 14th circuit and that allowed Bacon to close and grab the lead on lap 16 as he and Wilson battled through the lapped cars.

Bacon built a sizeable lead but the second caution flag would fly with just eight laps to go. Bacon executed a great restart and pulled away from Wilson as Daggett, who won the previous night in Michigan, holding down third while a tremendous battle ensued for fourth involving Hannagan and Jared Horstman.

Coming to the checkers Tim Allison and Zane DeVault got together right in front of Bacon, as the pair flipped violently with Bacon taking quick evasive action to avoid the incident. Both drivers were uninjured. Bacon took the green and drove away to the win over Wilson, Daggett, Hannagan and Horstman.

Dues and Mike Miller brought the field to green for the 25-lap BOSS feature with Dues committing to the bottom groove to grave the lead over Westfall, Miller and Kyle Simon. Dues hit his marks perfectly and maintained his slight lead while the battle for second heated up between Westfall and Miller with Hayslett joining in the action.

Miller would bring out the first caution on lap 13 as he and Westfall got together battling for second. On the restart Westfall stayed glued to Dues’ rear bumper but could not make the pass. Following another caution on lap 18. Dues again got a great restart and continued to lead Westfall, Hayslett, Simon and Steve Little.

With just two laps to go a five car incident put Westfall right on Dues’ bumper. Dues didn’t succumb to the pressure and continued to lead. As the field came to the white flag you could cover the top three with a blanket. Both Westfall and Hayslett made a last lap attempt at Dues who hung on for the win with Hayslett taking second at the line over Westfall.

Waynesfield Raceway Park is back in action Wednesday, June 16 for the Rick Ferkel Classic as part of the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions Ohio Sprint Speedweek.

Austin McCarl, Olivier and Moore Earn Victories at Huset's Speedway During Frankman Motors Night

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (May 30, 2021) - Austin McCarl, Zach Olivier and Mike Moore kicked off a doubleheader weekend at Huset's Speedway by reaching Victory Lane on Sunday evening during Frankman Motors Night.

McCarl took advantage in traffic to lead the final 10 laps of the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association and Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig main event for his second victory in two starts at the dirt oval this season.

"I felt like it came down to traffic there," he said. "Gio (Scelzi) was doing a good job of setting the pace. He caught a guy at the wrong time and got stuck in the fence. These races are won and lost in traffic. Even my mom told me before we pushed off that you only need to lead the last lap, just stay patient."

Polesitter Giovanni Scelzi led the first 15 laps of the 25-lap A Main before contact on the frontstretch while trying to put a driver down a lap allowed McCarl to steal the lead. Four laps later Scelzi slowed to a stop for the fourth-and-final caution of the race.

McCarl quickly built a sizeable lead on the restart as younger brother Carson McCarl and Jack Dover swapped the runner-up position during the ensuing two laps. Carson McCarl won that battle to score the second-place showing and take over the points lead at Huset's Speedway.

"We weren't getting the best restarts there," he said. "We just have to get a tick faster. We've been second here twice and I think we have a really fast car."

Dover's third-place outing was a season best at the track and his rally from the 17th starting position earned the Simpson Safety Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

"If we can qualify better and put ourselves in a better spot in the A Main I think we have a shot at winning one of these," he said.

Gregg Bakker posted a fourth-place finish with Matt Juhl placing fifth.

Austin McCarl and Juhl set quick time in their qualifying groups. McCarl, Scelzi, Riley Goodno and Jade Hastings each won a heat race. James Broty was the B Main winner.

Olivier captured his second straight Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks A Main by leading the final 10 laps of the 20-lap race.

Brandon Ferguson held the top spot throughout the first eight laps, which featured five cautions, before ninth-starting Cory Yeigh used the outside lane to power into the lead on Lap 9. Two laps later Olivier stuck the bottom in turn four to drive into first place. He held off Yeigh by cruising through traffic to a win by 1.490 seconds.

"(Yeigh) was so fast up there," Olivier said. "I couldn't get around (Ferguson). I hopped up on the cushion and the car just drove really well. I caught (Yeigh) in just a couple of laps. I thought, 'Well, that's half the challenge.' We had a really good race. He showed me his nose. Then we got to lapped traffic and we got to slicing and dicing. That might be the most fun race I've had. Huset's Speedway is back."

Matt Steuerwald was third with Ferguson fourth. Colby Klaassen charged from 14th to fifth.

JJ Zebell, Steuerwald and Olivier recorded heat race victories.

Moore led the opening seven laps before the first of a half dozen cautions slowed the 20-lap Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series main event. Brandon Bosma took over the top spot on a restart of Lap 8, but Moore reclaimed the lead on Lap 13 using the outside lane to his advantage. He then outlasted the final two cautions to win by 0.423 of a second. It was Moore's first career triumph at the track.

"I've been coming down here for about 20 years and racing that 410," he said. "This is my first win here. It feels great. Man, this car was sweet."

Bosma posted a runner-up result with Dusty Ballenger rounding out the podium. Stu Snyder advanced from 17th to fourth and Casey Abbas finished fifth.

Chris Thram, Bill Johnson, Bosma and Lee Goos Jr. each won a heat race. Snyder claimed the B Main.

The action continues at Huset's Speedway on Monday for the Ben Nothdurft Memorial featuring the Northern Outlaw Sprint Association and Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig as well as the RepairableVehicles.com Tri-State Late Models. The sprints will race for a stout $7,500 to win and the late models for $6,000 to win.

The grandstands open at 4 p.m. with hot laps at 6 p.m. and racing to follow.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for students ages 13-years-old to 18-years old and free to children 12-years-old and younger.

Paul Nienhiser Puts the Wing On and Wins Sprint Invaders Opener at 34 Raceway!

(Bill W) West Burlington, IA, May 30, 2021 – Paul Nienhiser took a break from the AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car series Sunday night, and emerged victorious with the Sprint Invaders at 34 Raceway near West Burlington, Iowa. The win was worth $2,000 for the Chapin, Illinois driver aboard the Scott Bonar/Midland Performance #50. It was Nienhiser’s fourth career Sprint Invaders win, and his third at 34 Raceway.

Nienhiser shot out from his starting spot outside row one in the 25-lap main event. Josh Schneiderman settled into second, followed by Tanner Gebhardt. The leader extended his advantage, and entered lapped traffic on the sixth circuit. Cody Wehrle, the 2018 series champion, entered the top three on lap nine with a pass of Gebhardt.

While Nienhiser and Schneiderman navigated lapped traffic well, the battle for third, fourth, fifth and sixth became intense. Wehrle, Gebhardt, Chris Martin and Sawyer Phillips traded punches for several laps.

The lone caution came when Gebhardt’s good run came to an end with a spin in turn one. Blain Jamison was caught in the incident, spoiling a top ten run of his own. Neinhiser led Schneiderman, Wehrle, Martin and Phillips back to green flag racing.

On lap 13, Wehrle shot by Schneiderman for second, and Martin followed suit a lap later, as the two battled for position. As they put on their show, Nienhiser pulled away. Jamie Ball’s threat for a top five run ended over the top of turn two. He steered towards the pit area to avoid a collision with the backstretch wall with ten to go.

Up front, it was all Nienhiser, who won by a straightaway over Wehrle, Martin, Schneiderman and Phillips. Josh Higday, hard-charger Kaley Gharst, Brayden Gaylord, Colton Fisher and Tom Lenz rounded out the top ten. Nienhiser, Phillips and Wehrle won heat races. Phillips also claimed the Shake-up Dash.

“Track position was big tonight, especially in the heat race to give you position in the feature,” said Nienhiser. “We always have a gameplan of attack. Starting in the front row, objective number one was to get the jump and get out in clean air. Then get a good enough pace for it to be tough to have someone drive by us. (Driving with the wing) is kind of like riding a bike. We’ve run with the wing a couple times this year. Scott (Bonar) puts a great car underneath me. We struggled for a couple years there to get a win. Now it seems like the dark cloud over our head is gone. Hopefully, we can pick up a couple more.”

“To run as well as we did and be competitive with those guys who have a lot more laps than us this year felt good,” said Wehrle of his second-place run. “With Chris and Paul, and the other guys…they’re going to drive hard, but you know they’re going to drive clean. It makes it so much easier knowing that. That was a hoot! We struggled with this car all year last year, so our expectations coming into the night were not high at all. It was a double bonus to do well in this car.”

“I like the work they did on the track,” said Martin. “It reminds me of how it was years ago in 2016 and 2017. It seemed to have a little too much moisture in it the last few years. It makes me excited to come back. We try to race clean, but we’re also out there at war with each other. We want to race hard, and every position matters to me and the majority of the competitors. It was a lot of fun racing tonight. I do wish we could have started a couple more rows up…maybe nest time.”

The next events for the Sprint Invaders will be Friday, June 26 and Saturday, June 27 at Davenport Speedway and back at 34 Raceway. For more information on the Sprint Invaders, visit www.SprintInvaders.com or look us up on Facebook.

Baughman Rips Through Tri-City Raceway Park Sprint Field;
Holden, Bish, and Speer also Win
(Franklin, PA May 30, 2021): Josh Baughman rolled into Western Pennsylvania from Odessa, TX to do a little testing in preparation for Western Pennsylvania Speedweek. If Sunday’s performance is indicative of his level of preparation, the other racers better burn the midnight oil because they have some catching up to do. Baughman, who has not sat in a Sprint Car since last August, showed no signs of rust in racing to the win in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars.
JImmy Holden (Krill Recycling 358 Modifieds), Curtis J. Bish (Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks), and Dalton Speer (4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks) also celebrated in victory lane.
“That was pretty fun,” Baughman said. “I lost my brakes on lap eight, so I had to go to the bottom.” he added. Baughman gave props to Sye Lynch and his crew for helping him throughout the night. Baughman is a sponsor of Lynch’s racer.
Bob Felmlee sat on the pole for the twenty-five lap feature event in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars. Next to him was Brandon Matus. Behind them were Goerge Hobaugh, Jr. and Carl Bowser, with teammates Lynch and Baughman in the third row. Brandon Spithaler lined up next to last week’s winner and current point leader, Jack Sodeman, Jr. Gale Ruth, Jr. and Clay Riney had their mounts in row five, with Ken Rossey and Brent Matus in row six.
Felmlee led the snarling Sprint cars into turn one, but Brandon Matus found some bite on the high side in turns one and two to take an early lead. But Felmlee battled back and he nailed turns three and four to be scored as the leader of the opening lap. Felmee was hitting his marks, with Matus running second, Baughman in third, and Hobaugh in fourth. Sodeman was up to fifth in the early going.
There was a three-car battle for the lead with a handlul of laps complete. As the leaders approached traffic, Baughman weaved his way through to take the lead with eight klaps in the books. Felmlee held second, but he was under attack from Brandin Matus. Soon, Sodeman was in the hunt.
A caution for debris brought Baughman back to the rest of the racers. Sodeman used the restart to his advantage, sweeping into second in the first two turns. But he was no match for the fleet Texan.
A red for a spectacular crash involving Clay Riney and Bob McMillin in the middle of the back stretch brought out the red. Neither driver was hurt, but the fence running along the track took the brunt of the impact.
Baughman raced out front the rest of the way, with Sodeman making up some ground as the laps wound down. But Sodeman ran out of time and fortified his points lead with the best of the rest finish this night.
Taking third was Felmlee for his best outing of the season. Lynch crossed in fourth, with Brandon Matus fifth. Bowser, Ruth, Rossey, Kyle Colwell, and Brent Matus rounded out the top ten.
Scoring heat wins for Donovan & Bauer Auto Group were Sodeman and Hobaugh. There was no B Main for the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars.
Sid Unverzagt, Jr. and Max Smoker brought the field to the chalk stripe in turn four for the start of the twenty lapper in the Krill Recycling Modifieds. Lonny Riggs and Kyle Fink were in row two, with Jimmy Holden and Kevin Hoffman in the third. D.J. Schrader and Jeremiah Shingledecker were in row four, with Brian Sadler and Curt Bish, Jr. in the fifth row.

Unverzagt and Smoker ran wheel to wheel on the opening lap before Unverzagt took control. Riggs settled into third, with Schrader and Holden following.
Holden moved into second on lap three and Jeremiah Shingledecker followed him into third.
A caution on lap five put Holden on Unverzagt’s flank with Shingledecker and Riggs hot on their tails. Holden and Shingeldecker both scooted past Unverzagt before another caution slowed the pace. Another caution for debris kept the drivers from getting into a comfort zone.
However, the remainder of the race was completed without incident. Although Holden maintained control, he was challenged in the last few laps by Shingledecker.
Shingledecker rolled up on the leader in traffic and got a nose inside of him coming off turn four. But Holden reached the lapped cars first and they were running single file on the inside. So Holden used them as a pick to get separation from Shingledecker. Holden maintained his lead to the finish.
Next to cross was Riggs for his best finish of the season so far. Unverzagt also cracked the top five for the first time this season. Getting fifth was Hoffman. Eric Beggs, Smoker, Sadler, Nathan MacDowell, and Ryan Riffe completed the top ten.
“It was smooth top to bottom when we went out for hot laps, but Mother Nature does what it does. It was pretty smooth in the groove,” Holden observed. “This is the best that our car has been all year. My dad stayed ahead of the track.”
Taking the wins for the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group heat races were Riggs and Fink, who was an early retiree due to a mechanical failure. There was no B Main in the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds.
In the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, Randy Wyant and Jackson Humanic battled fro the lead from their front row starting spots. Wyant took control and led the way until his car broke on lap thirteen while leading. Although Himanic had the lead, he was unable to hold back the Bish brothers, who were racing hard.
Curtis J. Bish took the lead on the restart and Curt Bish Jr. was nipping on his heels until he got crossed up in turn two. That enabled William Hurrelbrink to scoot by for second.
Curtis J. Bish took the checkers, followed by Hurrelbrink, and Bish Jr. Humanic held on for fourth with Tyler Wyant upholding the family name in fifth. Josh Seippel, Darr Diegelm,an, Pat Fielding, Bob McMillen, and Randy Wyant were scored in the top ten.
The Donovan & Bauer Auto Group heat winners in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks were Randy Wyant, Duke Davidson, and Curtis J. Bish.
Dalton Speer led wire to wire despite losing his power steering during the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stock feature race. Justin Bailey chased him home. Chad Greeley was third, with D.J. Macrae and Brandon Seippel taking fourth and fifth. Positions six through ten went to Evan Sobieski, Kevin Wice, Jesse Armstrong, Michael Barr, and Trevn Shaffer.

Chad Greeley was named the hard charger for the night, advancing fourteen pots in the Mini Stock Feature. He picked up a bonus from Fisher & Father Napa Auto Parts.
The two Donovan & Bauer Auto Group heat races belonged to Bailey and Todd Hanlon. There was no B Main in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks.

Smith Slides to John Carroll Classic Win at Skagit Speedway

5/29/21

Alger, WA – Sunshine, sprint cars and fireworks were the perfect combination for an amazing night of entertainment on Saturday at Skagit Speedway, as IRI and the Follman Agency presented the John Carroll Classic. Cam Smith thrilled the crowd with a late race slidejob to win the 360 main and was joined as a winner on the night by Evan Margeson, Tyson Blood and Mike Macpherson.

Trey Starks set a torrid pace in the 25 lap Budweiser 360 Sprint main event, quickly making his way into lapped traffic from his pole position starting spot. Smith would keep pace, despite Starks routinely passing multiple slower cars per corner. A lap 15 caution for third place running Brock Lemley tightened the field up, and on the restart Starks didn’t quite gap Smith like he had previously. The pair had started working through slower cars when a red for Eric Fisher and Jeremy McCune would bunch the field up a final time with a green-white-checkered restart approaching. As Starks brought them back to green, he left the low groove open heading into turn one and Smith executed a picture perfect slidejob to take the top spot on the exit of turn two. Starks returned fire on Smith after the white flag, using a monster run off the turn two cushion to try and roll underneath Smith heading into the final corners. Smith managed to keep his car rolling hard through the turn, while Trey couldn’t hold all the speed he had at the extreme bottom of the track, spinning out as Smith took the win, his second of 2021. With the Starks spin, Colton Heath advanced to second with Garen Linder third. Starks was fast time. Linder, Lemley and Jason Solwold topped the heats for the 21 car field.

Evan Margeson made a hard race look easy in leading every lap of the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprint main event. While Evan led all 25 laps, he had to decisively deal with lapped traffic, as Jared Peterson closed on him time and time again while weaving through the slower cars. Evan was up to the task each time, taking the win ahead of Jared and third place finisher Greg Hamilton. Margeson was also the fast qualifier. Heat winners were Steve Parker, Cory Swatzina and Allison Johnson.

Tyson Blood picked up his first win of the year in the Skagit Aggregates Modifieds. Blood drove past Ben Gunderson on lap nine to secure the lead and eventual win. The battle behind him for second was intense and entertaining, with Rick Smith coming from eighth to end up second and Adam Holtrop driving from deep in the field to take third. Smith and Blood won the heats.

Mike Macpherson is 2 for 2 in the Outlaw Tuner money events on the year, grabbing the lead on lap nine of the main event and driving away for the money win, thanks to the additional purse being put up in memory of Mike Thomas. Howard Vos and Brian Michelson were second and third. Making the Macpherson win more impressive was his dead last starting spot. He was also a heat race winner alongside Jon Gunderson.

Jason Barney goes Back to Back in Lucas Oil ESS Wins by Taking Checkers at Fulton.

FULTON, NY – Still disappointed with his effort on the Lucas Oil ESS 2021 Tour opener at Genesee, Brewerton, NY’s Jason Barney made sure it’s becoming a distant memory with his second NAPA Auto Parts A-Main win in a row by winning at the Fulton Speedway Saturday night. This time he did lead all laps in route to his $2,110 payday.

Just like last week’s 25 lap event at Thunder Mountain, even though Barney was out front it was still and “go all-out” affair as the final 24 laps were run under green. Barney had to endure heavy lapped traffic and competitors know in that in traffic being behind the leader is the advantage.

“It was a lot like last week. Starting position meant so much but when you get all those green flag laps you have to do such a balance,” Jason went on with how he needed to race, “You try to go as hard as you could cause you have no idea where anyone is behind you. But you also don’t want to go too hard and get into the slower cars. It can be tricky.”

On the original start, several cars got together coming of turn four that ended the night for Matt Tanner, Parker Evans and Keith Granholm. On the next restart, only one lap got in the books when Chuck Hebing slowed ending his race as well. After that, the next green flag was the last.

“it was a little tough getting going there at the beginning, but I had such a good car, it was nice to get in your rhythm soon after that,” Barney went on about his team. “We have such a good team and such a good program; the driver just has to do his job. Tonight, it felt good to win again, felt good to do it here and in front of all these fans.”

With the 87 Speed backed X-1 that Barney assembles himself opened up a slight lead over Shawn Donath in his Pather FrameWorx mount that he also assembled in the first half of the evet. Donath tried to keep Barney in sight, but the same lapped traffic hindered him as well.

In the closing stages, 2019 ESS champ Paulie Colagiovanni gained some speed to swing by Donath and pick up the chase of Barney. While it was looking like an easy victory, Colagiovanni’s #10 was making up ground at a rapid rate. With two to go he was a full strait behind Barney. Coming for the checkered he was just a few car lengths.

“We had a real good car. After starting in ninth we had to pass some real good cars and once we got into second I tried to catch him,” said the 20 year old Champion, “We ran out of laps but it was a good run for us. We got a good finish and we hope maybe to get some wins here soon.”

For Donath, it was more relief than anything else. Pretty much wiping out his frame at Genesee and the very subpar performance at Thunder Mtn. with an ill-handling car. A podium finish is what the doctor ordered.

“We needed this!” Donath exclaimed, “It has been such a bad start to our year, but the car was handling. The team really rallied together and I felt good out there. It was totally different that last week where I just couldn’t drive it at all. Tonight it was fast when we unloaded it.”

Local favorite Larry Wight backed up his fast time in his timed group and heat win with a fourth-place finish, Jonathan Preston came from 18th to place fifth and collect the hard charger bonus. Rounding out the top ten were Danny Varin, Sammy Reakes IV, Dylan Swiernik for his third top ten in as many races, Kelly Hebing and Joe Trenca.

Next weekened’s planned trip to Canada has been cancelled due to the border still being closed. The weekend back up in August is still being planned. The June 11th event scheduled for Mohawk is being postponed to a weekend in August as well. Next up will be the annual Kevin Ward Jr. Memorial Asphalt Spectacular held at the Evans Mills Motorsports Park on June 19th.

Schmidt, Letizia, Kulow, Bauer score PDTR A-main triumphs

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) May 29, 2021 – On an evening when bad luck hounded the leaders in three of four A-main races, four advantageous competitors turned in Plymouth Dirt Track Racing A-main victories in main event action at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

In A-main action, 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove raced to victory in the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty 360 Sprint Car headliner, after early race leader Scotty Thiel of Sheboygan made contact with a lapped car.

Milwaukee’s Turk Letizia took advantage of a final-lap incident involving the first and second-place cars of three-time and defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland and Charlie Schmidt of Cedar Grove to collect the victory in the 25-lap Sheboygan’s Country B93.7 Late Model main event.

2019 PDTR Grand National champion Tyler Kulow of Plymouth drove the low groove to earn the win the 25-lap Oostburg Automotive A main and Justin Bauer of Sheboygan Falls benefitted from a spin by early race leader Trevor Frank of Sheboygan to claim the victory in the 25-lap Cellcom B Mod A main.

In the 25-lap 360 Sprint Car headliner, Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car competitor Scotty Thiel, who started second, outpowered polesitter Nick Daywalt of Hubertus to grab the lead on the opening lap in a rare appearance behind the wheel of a PDTR 360 Sprint Car.

Thiel worked the high line on the dry slick track surface to built up a quarter-straightaway cushion over fourth starter Ben Schmidt in the early going. On lap 7, the leaders hit lapped traffic. One lap later, Thiel made contact with the slower car of PDTR 360 Sprint Car rookie Matt Rechek of Beaver Dam in turn four, which sent him spinning to bring out the first of two caution flags.

Thiel restarted the race at the rear of the field, while Schmidt inherited the lead on the restart. Following the restart, two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee, who started fifth, worked his way past Daywalt into second with two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh, who started sixth, in tow.

On lap 12, McMullen ducked low to work past Davis with ninth starter Travis Arenz of Sheboygan hot on his heels to move into third. One lap later, Arenz used the high groove to power around McMullen into second in turn three.

Two laps later, Alex Pokorski of West Bend rolled to a stop in turn two to bring out the second and final caution flag of the race. Schmidt controlled the race on the final restart, but Arenz held strong to mount a spirited challenge over the final five laps.

On lap 21, Arenz attempted to work the middle groove to steal the lead away from Schmidt. However, Schmidt fended off Arenz’s charge in the closing laps of the race to earn his second Plymouth victory of the 2021 season, 12th career PDTR 360 Sprint Car victory and 29th career Midwest Sprint Car Association A main triumph.

Arenz finished second, McMullen was third, Davis wound up fourth and 2008 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett rounded out the top five after starting seventh.

Polesitter Turk Letizia grabbed the lead of the 25-lap Late Model A main on the drop of the green flag with third starter Jim Schmidt of Cleveland in second. On lap 2, sixth starter Charlie Schmidt worked the high line to bolt into third.

One lap later, Charlie Schmidt dispatched of the low-riding Jim Schmidt to take second. Charlie Schmidt completed his march to the front by working around Letizia into first place along the high line in turn one on lap 4.

Two laps later, Justin Schmidt found the outside groove to his liking as he worked past Letizia to take second. On lap 10, Charlie Schmidt caught the back of the field, which allowed Justin Schmidt to cut the gap significantly.

On lap 21, Justin Schmidt ducked low to take over the top spot. However, Charlie Schmidt battled back as the two drivers dueled side by side for the lead on lap 22. The leaders were forced to negotiate lapped traffic over the final two circuits and on the final circuit Justin Schmidt and Charlie Schmidt made contact in turn four, which sent Justin Schmidt spinning to a stop as the checkered flag flew.

Charlie Schmidt, crossed the finish line first, but was penalized to the rear of the field for the contact with Justin Schmidt with the victory going to Letizia, who was running third on the final lap, in the caution-free race.

It was Letizia’s first victory of the 2021 season and fourth overall PDTR Late Model A-main triumph.

Taylor Scheffler of Waukesha, who started 13th, finished second, rookie Justin Green of Sheboygan Falls placed third, after starting fourth, eighth starter Jayme Zidar of Greenfield placed fourth in his return to Dirt Late Model racing after a lengthy absence, and Jim Schmidt rounded out the top five.

Polesitter Brad Weiss of West Bend grabbed the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap Grand National A main with two-time PDTR Grand National champ Don Sorce Jr. of West Allis, who started fifth, in second.

On lap five, second starter Steven Weber of Plymouth moved up to the high groove to take second from Sorce Jr. and on the following lap Weber bolted around Weiss to take the lead in turn two.

However, one lap later, Sorce Jr. used the low line to move past Weber into the top spot. On lap 9, Tyler Kulow, who started sixth, made his presence felt as he took second from Weber and began setting his sights on Sorce Jr. for the lead.

On lap 15, Kulow closed in on the lead and three laps later he slipped underneath Sorce Jr. to seize the top spot. Kulow then proceeded to pull away over the final seven laps en route to his first A main victory of the 2021 season and ninth career PDTR Grand National main event win in the non-stop race.

Sorce Jr. finished second, Weber was third, eighth starter Luke Scholten of Oostburg placed fourth and 2017 PDTR Grand National champion Matt Loehr of Dotyville finished fifth after starting fourth.

Polesitter Trevor Frank grabbed the lead with second starter Justin Bauer taking second on the opening lap of the 25-lap B Mod A main. After the first of five caution flags appeared on lap 2, Frank again held the top spot on the restart with Bauer following.

Frank controlled the pace at the front of the field until lap 7 when he spun in turn two to bring out the second caution of the race. Frank restarted the race at the rear of the field with Bauer assuming the top spot.

On lap 7, Jonathan Hitsman of Plymouth, who started third, worked the high groove to take second before the third caution appeared for a single-car spin on lap 8.

Bauer led Hitsman over the next six green flag laps before Frank and Spencer Long of Sheboygan Falls made contact turn three, resulting in both drivers spinning to bring out the fourth caution flag of the race.

Glen Blanke of Sheboygan Falls, who started fifth, flexed his muscle on the restart to move into second and challenge Bauer for the lead along the cushion. The low-riding Bauer and high-side hugging Blanke dueled side by side for the lead on lap 14 before Bauer eventually maintained the position.

The fifth caution flag came out on lap 19 when Rick Kretschmann of Sheboygan Falls hit the wall in turn four. Bauer continued to fend off the challenges of Hitsman on the restart and held strong over the final six laps to secure his second career PDTR B Mod A-main victory.

Hitsman placed second, Gary Glander of Sheboygan Falls, who started fourth, finished third, seventh starter Shane Long of Sheboygan Falls took fourth and Blanke rounded out the top five.

Tim Haddy of Waupun won the first 12-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car B main and Scott Conger of Eagle was the victory in the second 12-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car B main.

Tyler Kulow set a new 10-lap PDTR Grand National heat race record in winning the second Grand National heat race in a time of two minutes and 33 seconds, which was one second better that the previous track record.

MCCUNE BANKS 5K WITH AMERICAN SPEED U.S. NATIONALS WIN

May 29, 2021 – Kalamazoo, Michigan – Jimmy McCune fought of challenges from Joe Liguori and Jason Blonde to win the Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro 50-lap feature event at Kalamazoo Speedway Saturday night. McCune’s victory in the inaugural American Speed U.S. National was worth $5,000.

McCune got the jump at the start from his outside front row starting position and led the first 17 circuits. Joe Liguori trailed closely and pulled alongside McCune on lap 17. The duo ran side-by-side for several laps. McCune managed to hang on to the top spot, but only momentarily.

Jason Blonde then began to harass McCune for the lead with 27 laps to go and eventually wrestled the top spot away 4 laps later. Blonde began to pull away until a yellow flag flew for Nolan Allison’s spin on lap 35.

On the double-file restart, race leader Blonde surprisingly chose the outside line. When the green flag waved, Blonde got too high exciting turn two and nearly got into the wall. McCune assumed the top spot again and Liguori snagged second place.
The final caution waved with ten laps to go. McCune also chose the outside lane on this final restart. McCune took the lead and drove the final 10 laps to seal the victory.

In victory lane McCune insisted when Blonde took the lead and began to build a sizeable lead there was no quit. “We were still digging” explained McCune.”We just weren’t as good on that longer run. We just started the race a little too good. I needed to be a little more uncomfortable in the beginning of the race and let the car come to me. On that restart she launched on the bottom pretty hard. I sailed her into one and I realized he (Blonde) wasn’t there, so I let her slide up to take his line away and then we were off to the races from there. I wasn’t surprised he chose the outside lane on the next-to-last restart. That’s typical of Jason. He loved to run the top. This was probably my second biggest payday since I’ve been racing” concluded McCune.

Jason Blonde was second followed by Troy DeCaire, Joe Liguori, and Jacob Dolinar rounding out the top five. Troy DeCaire was the nights fast qualifier with a lap of 11.003 seconds.

In the Maxima Racing Oils Must See Racing Midwest Lights event, Joey Wyckoff picked up his second consecutive feature event of the 2021 season over Dylan Watson, Charlie Schultz, James Rader, and Tim Henthorne.

PIRTEK Renegades

May 28, 2021, Fergus Falls, MN

Clear skies and a cool crisp breeze greeted an intrepid group of a dozen PIRTEK Renegade travelers to the I-94 Speedway in Fergus Falls, MN. The Friday night affair served as the kick-off for a three night swing through northern and central Minnesota over the holiday weekend. Cam Schafer snared yet another heat race win in the opening contest, while Jeremy Kerzman nabbed the checkers in the second qualifier.

For the main event, Kerzman and Bryan Roach paced the field to race starter Shaun Cimfl’s green flag, with Kerman showing the way early. A few car lengths back, Roach was fending off challenges from Mike Mueller, Jon Lewerer, Schafer, and Jeff Pellersels. With a handful of laps in, Roach had reeled in Kerzman and powered his #99 mount to the point. Kerzman, Mueller and Schafer danced for most of the middle portion of the race until only about seven laps remained. Schafer eventually muscled past Mueller and into the runner-up spot with precious few circuits remaining. Schafer cracked the whip and had his steed gobbling up the clay chasing down Roach. With one lap to go, Schafer was still a quarter-second behind Roach and pulled out all the stops, but Roach was up for the challenge - and on a track at which he’d won several features as a late model pilot - the chauffeur of the #99 went “back home” and parked his sprinter in Rock Auto victory lane. Schafer crossed the stripe in second, chased by Mueller, Kerzman, and Nick DaRonco in the caution-free night of competition.

In other Renegade action, Zach Olson scored the win on Thursday night as the Northern Renegades kicked off their season at Grand Rapids Speedway in their first winged event of the summer. Also on Friday, Adam Sobolik scored his second win of the season for the Western Renegades at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, ND. Action continues for the Pirtek Renegades on Saturday and Sunday at Viking Speedway in Alexandria, MN.

 

 

Bobby Parrow Enters CRSA Record Books At Land of Legends

Race Report by Steven Ovens – May 24th, 2021

(CANANDAIGUA, NY) – Bobby Parrow made a rather glorious return to sprint car racing in 2020 driving for Land of Legends Raceway 305 sprint competitor Tom Fletcher. The new pairing picked up 2 wins on the same night in August and contended for the track title at season’s end.

Fletcher and Parrow looked to 2021 as a year where they could continue to build on their success and got off to a hot start, winning opening night at Land of Legends Raceway on May 15. Move to this weekend’s second round of the 16-race CRSA Series and the D.C. Rauscher, Wings for Cystic Fibrosis No. 53 was again contending for the victory.

Parrow battled back and forth, lap after lap, with defending LOLR 305 Sprints track champion Alysha Bay. Bay committed to the bottom lane, Parrow blasting the cushion after a 5:30 light shower made for a super fast surface that saw average speeds over 108mph in Hot Laps.

While the battle for the lead had most of the attention there were also several cars making quick work of traffic to elevate themselves on the leaderboard. Jeff Trombley worked both high and low to eventually find himself in third position before the tires heated up and his march forward leveled off. Trombley’s moves to get there earned him the “Maguire Family of Dealerships Magnificent Move of the Race.”

Rochester, NY’s David Ferguson had even more work to do as he washed, dried and pressed his Speedy Cleaners No. 45 from eighteenth starting position to fifth in the final rundown. His +13 effort earned Ferguson the “Powdertech Powdercoating Hard Charger Bonus” in his first race back since 2019.

Up front though, the lead changed hands four times in the closing laps with Parrow getting an advantage, Bay closing back in and eventually taking the lead back. An impressive Land of Legends Raceway crowd were not even using the seats they paid for in those last two laps. Bay found bite with a lap to go to retake the lead and beat Parrow in a drag race off the fourth turn to cross the line first.

However in post-race CRSA tech inspection, an infraction of the valve springs would relegate Bay to a 23rd place finish and award Parrow his first career CRSA Series victory. Parrow spoke with Land of Legends Raceway Public Relations Director Tom Skibinski on Sunday to discuss the victory.

“Its tough when you're leading to know where all the others are getting fast,” said Parrow, who joined last weekend's Penn Can (Pa.) Speedway winner Kyle Pierce as first-time entries in the CRSA record book.

Parrow is the seventh different winner in 12 CRSA events staged at LOLR and the 20-lap win worth $770 was also the first tour triumph for team owner Tom Fletcher. “Car was great in turns three and four, should've changed my line and run a little lower in turns one and two but up top was working good early on.”

“You need to keep your lap times consistent and I felt pretty consistent running the top side when out in front,” said Parrow, who credited his key set-up guys on race day Mike Forde and Charlie Doverspike for managing another top performance. “Those two watch the track and consider the ever-change surface conditions then figure out any adjustments to make with the car. After that it was up to me to make all their work pay off.”

The aforementioned Kyle Pierce had a flat tire during the 20-lap Feature and made a trip to the pits to try and quickly make a change. CRSA rules do not call for a specified work area or guaranteed time for pit work and the Pierce crew was unable to return before the green flag was displayed. A tough night did earn Pierce the “Midstate Basement Authorities Out of the Basement Award”- an award sponsored by one of Pierce’s new marketing partners this season.

CRSA Sprints and their drivers wish to thank VanBortel Trucking owner Ike VanBortel who contributed an extra $500 into Saturday night’s purse for each position in the field along with being a nightly sponsor at Land of Legends Saturday.

Next on the schedule for the Super Gen Products CRSA 305 Sprints is a trip to “The Showpiece of the Northeast” at Al Heinke and Jimmy Phelps’ Weedsport Speedway. It will be a grand stage for the CRSA Sprints as they join the Super DIRTcar Series running the “Heroes Remembered 100” as well as the DIRTcar Sportsman division.

The CRSA 305 Sprints are powered by Super Gen Products with their Champion Power Equipment located in Newark, NY. Associate sponsors for the 2021 CRSA 305 Sprints include Midstate Basement Authorities, CNY Farm Supply, the Maguire Family of Dealerships, Powdertech Powdercoating, Hoosier Racing Tires, Insinger Performance with their Stinger Race Fuel and is owned and operated by Mike Emhof Motorsports.

Familiar faces occupy victory lane at Placerville Speedway on Sunday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – May 23, 2021…Clarksburg’s Justyn Cox, Placerville’s Tyler Lightfoot, Oakley’s Nick Baldwin and Galt’s Ryan Winter picked up wins in their respective divisions last night during the special “Sunday Funday” event at Placerville Speedway.
Cox started from the outside of the front row in the 25-lap Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Car feature and blasted into the lead at the waving of the green flag. The two-time Forni Classic winner carved his way through lapped traffic like a hot knife through butter and held a sizable advantage for much of the contest.

Aromas, CA’s Justin Sanders began to cut away at the lead however as the laps ticked off and certainly kept fans on the edge of their seats.

A late restart gave Sanders a closer shot and he attempted a couple of moves to steal the lead away, but Cox was mistake free on the high-side of the speedway and accepted the Ron Stahl checkered flag for his ninth career Winged 360 triumph at the track. Sanders brought home yet another consistent finish in second, followed by Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick in third, Fresno’s Dominic Scelzi in fourth and Mather’s Kalib Henry in fifth.

Rounding out the top-10 were Joel Myers Jr., Andy Forsberg, Willie Croft, Kaleb Montgomery and Bud Kaeding.

Roseville’s Sean Becker captured the B-main, while Penngrove’s Colby Johnson won the C-main. Four eight-lap heat races were held and went to Justyn Cox, Kaleb Montgomery, Tanner Carrick and Justin Sanders. Andy Gregg paced the field in ADCO Driveline and Custom Exhaust Qualifying by touring the quarter-mile in 10.583 seconds. A strong field of 36 Winged Sprint Cars competed at the special Sunday show.

Winged 360 results: 1. 7C-Justyn Cox[2]; 2. 35M-Justin Sanders[3]; 3. 83T-Tanner Carrick[1]; 4. 41-Dominic Scelzi[9]; 5. 5J-Kalib Henry[8]; 6. 46JR-Joel Myers Jr[6]; 7. X1-Andy Forsberg[4]; 8. 29-Willie Croft[10]; 9. 93-Kaleb Montgomery[7]; 10. 69-Bud Kaeding[12]; 11. 16X-Andy Gregg[5]; 12. 21-Shane Hopkins[13]; 13. 88A-Joey Ancona[11]; 14. 83V-Sean Becker[16]; 15. 38B-Blake Carrick[14]; 16. 34-Landon Brooks[19]; 17. 83SA-Isaiah Vasquez[20]; 18. 2X-Max Mittry[15]; 19. 22X-Tyler Thompson[17]; 20. 21X-Michael Ing[18]

One week after winning his first main event of the season Tyler Lightfoot came back to do it once again in the Ltd. Late Model feature on Sunday. During the early stages Lightfoot had to fend off Auburn’s Ray Trimble but as the race wore on he found his groove and pulled away to claim the checkered flag. Trimble crossed the stripe in second, followed by Orangevale’s Tom Tilford, Yuba City’s Rod Oliver and Diamond Springs’ Dan Jinkerson. Jinkerson and Trimble won the night’s heat races.

Ltd. Late Model results: 1. 23J-Tyler Lightfoot[1]; 2. 37-Ray Trimble[8]; 3. 23T-Tom Tilford[9]; 4. 57-Rod Oliver[6]; 5. 23-Dan Jinkerson[7]; 6. 22G-Paul Gugliomoni[5]; 7. 95-Max Mcafee[2]; 8. 3-Eddie Gardner[4]; 9. 66-George Magenheimer[3]

Nick Baldwin continued his torrid pace to the start of the season as well on Sunday and drove to his fourth victory of the 2021 campaign. The Oakley competitor started from the outside of the front row and never looked back en route to his 12th career triumph at the Placerville bullring. Diamond Springs’ Kevin Jinkerson claimed the runner up spot over El Dorado’s Bill O’Neal, John Evans and Placerville youngster Jonny Walsh. Baldwin also won the evening’s heat race.

Pure Stock results: 1. 17-Nick Baldwin[2]; 2. 30-Kevin Jinkerson[1]; 3. 23-Bill O'Neal[3]; 4. 48-John Evans[7]; 5. 4-Jonny Walsh[6]; 6. 23S-Stephanie Hanson[5]; 7. 93-Mel Byers[8]; 8. 83-Ryan Peter[9]; 9. 77T-Jason Armstrong[4]

The battle up front in the Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association was an excellent one but in the end it was the legend Ryan Winter who picked up another Placerville Speedway victory. Winter felt heavy pressure from Colfax driver Ben Wiesz over much of the contest. Several times it looked as if Wiesz would get under him for the lead, but at the end he had to settle for second over Fairfield’s Mike Grenert, who also hounded the top-two during much of the feature.

Camino’s Shawn Whitney and French Camp’s Brandon Shaw completed the top-five. Dan Geil, Brian Quilty, Wade Ehrlich, John Williams and Dylun Shrum rounded out the top-10. Heat race wins were picked off by Winter, Shaw and Wiesz. A total of 23 cars competed on Sunday night.

Dwarf Car results: 1. 4N-Ryan Winter[8]; 2. 57N-Ben Wiesz[6]; 3. 12N-Mike Grenert[3]; 4. 15N-Shawn Whitney[9]; 5. 28N-Brandon Shaw[7]; 6. 32N-Dan Geil[10]; 7. 16N-Brian Quilty[12]; 8. 53N-Wade Ehrlich[11]; 9. 777N-John Williams[20]; 10. 31N-Dylan Shrum[2]; 11. 2N-Hailey Wiesz[19]; 12. 70-Larry Bell[14]; 13. 36N-Jameson Sole[15]; 14. 99N-gage meyers[4]; 15. 59N-Austin Struthers[16]; 16. 29N-Corey Eaton[5]; 17. 6N-Austin Quilty[1]; 18. 616N-Tyler Quilty[21]; 19. 7N-Jace Badecker[17]; 20. 42N-Isaak Geil[18]; 21. 919N-Zach Armstrong[13]

Bard Back In Victory Lane

If the story of 2020 in the PA Sprint Series was the dominance of Garrett Bard, the story in early 2021 has been the lack of that dominance, but Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway, the current story line may have changed.

Bard, the Wells Tannery driver who won the PASS and IMCA/RaceSaver National Championships last year, grabbed the lead from Kenny Heffner on the feature’s final restart and collected his first PASS win of 2021 (he has won in other RaceSaver series) in the CG Racing Engines/Barnett Self Storage/Environmental Earth Tech #95.

Heffner, looking for his first career PASS win, led most of the race for the second time this season and settled for a career-best second place finish. The Watsontown driver battled Bard for nearly a full lap after the lap 18 restart in his Morgan Paving/Maloney Builders/Coyles Lawn Maintenance/April Kline, Realtor, #97 and was still fighting for the lead at the checkered flag.

Hometown favorite Ken Duke Jr., the 2019 PASS and IMCA/RaceSaver National Champion, charged from 10th starting position to finish third, followed by Austin Reed and George Riden.

John Walp, Justin Mills, Buddy Schweibinz, Doug Dodson and Erin Statler completed the top ten in the Apache Tree Service-sponsored feature.

Heffner took the early lead after he and pole-sitter Walp bumped coming off turn two on the first lap. Reed got past Walp for second after the incident.

Bard and Duke both advanced a position on the restart following the race’s first caution on lap two, then Bard got past Reed a lap later and moved into second, but Heffner was flying in front of the field. That lead evaporated with a lap ten caution, and on the restart, Bard hung with Heffner, rolling the inside and waiting for it to come to his advantage, while Heffner was riding higher and higher outside, seeking traction.

The final caution, when Austin Graby slowed on lap 18, gave Bard another shot, and the inside line worked just well enough for him to complete the pass after an exciting lap of side-by-side dueling.

The win was Bard’s fifth at Selinsgrove, and for 2021 he is the ninth different winner in nine PASS features.

Devin Adams was the night’s hard charger, advancing from 21st starting position to 12th. Duke moved up seven spots to his third-place finish.

The 35-car PASS field put on four competitive heat races, won by Drew Young, Heffner, Schweinbinz and Bard. In the first heat, Kassidy Kreitz moved from ninth and last starting spot into a qualifying position – fifth – on one lap. Jake Waters and Statler excited the crowd with their side-by-side duel for second in the second heat, and Bard came from fourth to first in one lap in the fourth heat.

With 14 cars going after six qualifying spots, the B-Main also was a dogfight, and Devin Adams came home with that win. Mikell McGee was in a qualifying position in that race when something broke and sent his car hard into the outside guard rail.

Next Saturday the PASS sprinters return to Port Royal Speedway to join the All Star Circuit of Champions for Night One of the Bob Weikert Memorial Weekend. Racing is scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m.

Double X Speedway

'Rain rain go away we want to race on Sunday' was the cry of race fans and drivers alike in the Central Missouri area. The voices must have been heard and thanks to the hard work of track owner Kyle Wirts and crew the 2021 racing season was able to begin. Four classes of cars were on the card for the evening and a capacity crowd was on hand to watch the events. With the amount of rain that has fallen over the past three weeks no one knew what to expect but the track held together and the surface stayed smooth for the evenings races.

Winged Sprint cars: 21 winged sprint cars signed in to challenge the 1/4 mile clay and vie for the top prize of $2000, courtesy of Central Missouri Security Services, LLC, for the winner of the 25 lap main event. Jack Wagner in the #77 Jack Hockett Racing machine started in the pole for the feature event with Garrett Williamson of Columbia alongside. After an opening lap melee caused a complete restart, Wagner would set sail with sixth starting Evan Martin advancing quickly to second place. The running order would stay like this until a lap seven restart would see Williamson move back into the number two position, one lap later Tyler Blank and Miles Paulus would move into the third and fourth positions, relegating Martin to fifth. Blank would gain second following a lap 10 restart and would begin reeling in the leader Wager. Leaving turn 4 on lap 16 Wagner would miss his mark slightly allowing Blank to make the pass for the lead down the front stretch. Blank would survive a restart on lap 23 and keep his pursuers at bay to claim the victory. Wagner would finish second, Williamson third, Martin fourth and Paulus would complete the top five. Taylor Walton was sixth, Samuel Wagner seventh, Jonathan Cornell eighth, Tyler Elliott ninth and Billy Butler rounded out the top ten. Heat races were claimed by Jack Wagner, Williamson and Austin Alumbaugh.

B-Modifieds Terry Schultz had more laps around Double X Speedway than any other driver in the B Modified class. However those laps were in a full bodied stock car, not an open wheel modified. Those laps paid off as Schultz used that experience to pick up the feature win on Sunday night. Schultz led green to checker to pick up the win. For seven laps Chris Spalding was tight to the back bumper of Schultz until falling victim to a mechanical issue. Cole Campbell then gave chase until he retired to the pit area in the closing laps. Following Schultz under the checkered flag was Nic Haines in second, Chris Cain in third, Adam Hall in fourth and Hunter Cuno in fifth. In places six through ten were Cole Stilwell, Earl Roark, Jordan Jones, Jimmy Borgmann and Richard Brainard respectively. Heat race winners were Spalding, Schultz and Cain

Street Stocks: It looked as if Derek Henson would be the man to beat in the opening laps on the Street Stock main, but California driver John Clancy, Jr. would emerge victorious. Clancy would take the point on lap three and would not relinquish the lead. Henson gave chase until his car began to slow and he would retire from the event on lap 8. Following Clancy to the line was Clayton Campbell in second, Joe Miller in third, Steve Beach in fourth and Dale Berry in fifth. Eddie Keeran would finish sixth, Jared Lamke was seventh, Gary Lamke eighth, Blaine Ewing ninth and Russell Beach in tenth. Heat race victories went to Clancy and Henson.

Hobby Stocks: Fabio, aka Kyle Smith, was in the house and put the class on notice he may be the car to beat this season in the hobby stock division. Winning the feature in a flag to flag victory in his trusty Mopar, Smith celebrated in victory lane. Bobby Chilton had a great showing, finishing second, Cody Melloway survived many challenges and claimed third, Josh Clark was fourth and Cole Canada was fifth. Chuck Coffey was sixth, Adam Melloway seventh, Jeremiah Wallingford eighth and Karen Johnson ninth. Heat races were claimed by Smith and Chilton.

Next week at Double X is the annual "Tribute to Jesse" featuring the three weekly classes of Winged Sprint Cars, Street Stocks and Hobby Stocks along with the special guest class, the USAC Midwest Wingless Racing Association featuring drivers from four states doing battle on the clay at Double X Speedway. Please make plans to join us for this annual special tribute event.

 

 

GT Transport Hot Shot Shootout
 

May 22, 2021, New Richmond, WI By: Terry Lenhertz

Summer hit like a freight train on Saturday night as 25 PIRTEK Renegades (including invaders from the north) checked in to do battle at the Cedar Lake Speedway, for the first of three GT Transport Hot Shot Shootout events. With the rainout of the scheduled event at ABC Raceway, in Ashland, five drivers from the Alexandria Technical College Professional Truck Driver Program Northern Renegades Series made the dash to central Wisconsin for the PIRTEK show. For the first time ever, the UMSS Traditional Sprintcar Series field was divided into two divisions, the Gold Series – and the Elite Series, with the Elite division reserved for drivers with a previous PIRTEK Renegade feature win.

The Gold Series drivers kicked off action with Northern Renegade hot shoe Ken Hron nabbing the first heat race of the night. Rookie Zach Widdes used some fancy high-side driving to take home top honors in the second heat. For the Elite racers, Brian VanMeveren crossed the stripe first in the opening qualifier but was penalized for jumping the initial start, so Northern Renegade Nick DaRonco was scored as the winner. The final heat race went to Scott Brandt, who also racked up the most passing points, charging up from his fourth starting spot.

The Gold feature saw Ken Hron and Ryan Buck set the pace coming to race starter Jeff Stacken’s green flag. With the engines up to full rev, it was Hron leading the field out of the first set of turns with Buck, Zach Widdes and Lucas Logue tucked in behind. While Hron felt some early heat from Widdes, the Grand Rapids pilot managed to keep at least one car length between himself and the rookie. The caution-free 15-lapper ended with a flag-to-flag clean sweep win for Hron. Chasing Hron at the stripe were Widdes, Logue, hard-charger Luke Nellis and Ryan Buck rounding out the top five.

The twenty car Elite feature field was led to green by Brian VanMeveren and Nick DaRonco, with VanMeveren the early leader in front of Bryan Roach and DaRonco. Two distinct grooves provided high/low action with Roach, Harry Hanson and Mike Mueller running the catfish line while VanMeveren, DaRonco, Cam Schafer, Scott Brandt and Jake Kouba pushing off the cushion. With seven laps scored, Lucas Logue and “The Rocketman” Kevin Bradwell came together in turn three, launching Bradwell’s ride into low-earth orbit in a series of hard rolls to bring out the red flag. The Rocketman escaped with a number of bumps, scrapes, and bruises, and a likely case of racer’s rheumatism come Sunday morning, but was able to walk away from the carnage.

Back under green, Schafer was hounding VanMeveren for the top spot for a handful of laps before making his winning move working under VanMeveren in turn two just past the half-way mark. Both grooves remained full of racers with Schafer, VanMeveren, Kouba and Blake Anderson all working upstairs while Mueller, Brandt, DaRonco, Jon Lewerer and Hanson were all making hay down low. For the second consecutive week, Mueller had his #87 dialed in and was reeling in Schafer, but Schafer powered through and gassed his way to Rock Auto victory lane for the sixth time this season. Behind Mueller, Brandt, Kouba, and VanMeveren made up the rest of the top five at the double checkers.

In other Renegade action over the weekend, Adam Sobolik pocketed a Western Renegade win on Friday at McClean County Speedway, while Joel Larson notched his second Western win of the summer at Devils Lake. Memorial Day weekend is chock full of Renegade action with the Western, Northern, PIRTEK, and Chequamegon Renegades all in action for a total of eleven events scheduled over the long holiday weekend honoring America’s war heroes.

Smith Captures URSS VS. OCRS Showdown at 81 Speedway

The Drive to Zero United Rebel Sprint Series presented by Mel Hambelton Ford combined forces with the Oklahoma based AmeriFlex Hose & Accessories / Oil Capital Racing Series IMCA Sprint Cars for a duel sanctioned event at 81 Speedway.

A total of 35 competitors entered competition, but it was Oklahoma veteran Danny Smith who came away with the $1,000 payday atop the 3/8’s mile Park City, Kansas oval for his 11th career OCRS victory.

Smith started outside front row in the 25-lapper and went the distance to win over URSS regular Jordan Knight. Another veteran campaigner, Danny Wood of Norman, raced to a third place finish racing with OCRS while URSS regulars Jeremy Huish and Kyler Johnson finished fourth and fifth. Whit Gastineau charged from 12th starting to finish sixth ahead of Tanner Conn and Alison Slaton. Defending URSS champion Zach Blurton settled for ninth and Oklahoman Kyle Clark earned the Keizer Wheels hard charger honors coming from 17th to 10th after finishing second in the first B main.

Winners of the five heat races were Smith, Kyler Johnson, Tanner Conn, Jeremy Huish and Jase Randolf with Joe Bob Lee and JD Johnson winning the two B mains.

Miley Grabs Tri-City Late Model Loot; Gomola and Clark Split 305 Paydays
(Franklin, PA May 23, 2021): Jared Miley won the rubber match in his personal race with Max Blair. Each had won races earlier in the weekend with the ULMS Late Model tour, with the other driver running second. Well, Miley got the bragging rights as a result of the win on Sunday night at Tri-City Raceway Park. Blair was second.
“Max is pretty good, especially in the area, so running second to him is pretty good, and we can beat him,” Miley noted. When asked what he credits for his recent success, which included a win worth nearly $8,000 at another area speedway, Miley said, “I think that I got my rust knocked off as a driver. I am going pretty good right now.” That, sir, is quite an understatement.
Miley started on the pole as a result of his quick time in the ULMS scramble. Boom Briggs lined up beside him, with Blair and Wyatt Scott in row two.
Miley pulled into the lead and he ran a smooth and consistent pace, mostly in the low groove around the speedway. The battle was for second, with Blair and Briggs swapping the spot several times in the early going. Blair grabbed the position for good by the midpoint of the thirty lapper. While running third, Briggs suffered a mechanical failure on lap 24 and he retired from the race.
Miley was superb on each of the restarts and the final one was no different. He pulled away from Blair with ease and he maintained a safe margin for the rest of the way.
Darrell Bossard, a former Pro Stock champion at Tri-City in the early days of his career, came home third. Ryan Scott was fourth, with Deshawn Gingerich, the youngest driver in the field, getting fifth.
Wayne Weaver was the sixth and final finisher despite pitting twice for new tires. Briggs, Wyatt Scott, Tyler Dietz, and Logan Jaquay rounded out the top ten based on laps completed.
Jaquay was driving a team car to Briggs.
The heat races for the ULMS Late Models went to Blair and Briggs. There was no B Main. The evening’s fastest qualifier was Max Blair, turning a lap of 17.443 seconds around the big half mile. Jared Miley topped the ULMS scramble with a quick time of 18.291 seconds.
In the Allegheny Sprint Tour 305s, the evening started off with a make-up feature carried over from the 2020 season. Jacob Gomola was the winner. However, in the waning laps, his engine soured. While he was able to make repairs to run the second feature, the car was not up to its winning standards.
Gomola started the first fifteen lapper from the pole with Andy Cavanaugh on his right hip. Jimmy Morris and Kyle Colwell were in the second row, with Steve Cousins and Logan McCandless in the third row.
Gomola blasted out to the early lead, but Colwell challenged for second on the opening lap. As the race progressed, Gomola opened up a ten car length advantage over Colwell, whose engine began to falter. Just before the halfway mark, it exploded on the front stretch.
That moved McCandless into the second spot for the restart, and he held that position the rest of the way. Andy Cavanaugh raced in third, with Morris nipping on his heels. Meanwhile, Tommy Jansen and Justin Clark diced for the fifth position.
At the checkers, it was Gomola, McCandless, Cavanaugh, Morris, and Jansen. Clark and Jared Rosencrance were the two remaining finishers. Colwell, Cousins, and Vivian Jones were scored next on the basis of laps completed.
Of note, it was the first 305 Sprint Car race for Jones, a former track champion in the region in the Modified Lite class. Unfortunately, engine problems sidelined her for the rest of the night.
In the regular feature for the Allegheny Sprint Tour, Andy Cavanaugh had the pole with Justin Clark next to him. Steve Cousins and Logan McCandless were in the second row, with Tom Jansen and Jim Morris in the third.
Clark dashed into the early lead, with Cavanaugh and McCandless giving chase. McCandless was using the high side, but it became his undoing with just three laps in the books. He went into the second corner too hot and spun. He kept going but fell to the rear of the field.
Clark completed the appointed rounds without interruption. Cavanaugh was second, with Morris crossing in third. Jared Rosencrance and Jacob Gomola put on a spirited battle for the fourth position, which changed hands several times in the last few laps. Rosencrance got the nod.

Jansen and McCandless were the final finishers. Cousins was scored in eighth based on laps completed.
In the night's regular racing for the Allegheny Sprint Tour, the heat race winners were Cavanaugh and Clark. There was no B Main.
Next weekend, Tri-City Raceway Park will present a Sunday Thunder program consisting of the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars, the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, and the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. Then, get ready for the resumption of the Western Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek coming on June 6. The finale for the mini series for the 410 Sprint Cars will be held at the speedway, with support coming from the Krill Recycling 358 Modifieds, Gary Glass Automotive/Washington House RUSH Sprints, and 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks.

NEARLY 24 YEARS LATER DAVE BLANEY IS A WORLD OF OUTLAWS SPRINT CAR WINNER AGAIN SCORING A POPULAR WIN AT SHARON 14 YEARS AFTER THEIR LAST APPEARANCE; 61-YEAR-OLD GREAT ROD GEORGE WINS RUSH SPRINT CAR OPENER

May 22, 2021

(Hartford, OH)…A capacity crowd that spilled over into the infield fan zone was part of a magical night as the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars returned to Sharon Speedway on Saturday after a 14-year absence. Dave Blaney (World of Outlaws) and Rod George (Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars) captured popular wins in an electric atmosphere at the track and for those that watched at home on DIRTVision.

Twenty-three years, seven months, and two days after his last World of Outlaws victory on October 21, 1997 at Southern New Mexico Speedway, Dave Blaney welcomed back the Series to his own track 14 years after their last appearances and sent Hartford, Ohio into a frenzy with a last lap pass of Sheldon Haudenschild for the $10,000 victory in the 35-lap feature.

“I feel like I had a Sprint Car career in the 90s but I don’t anymore,” explained the 58-year-old Hartford, Ohio native. “I just come out and play nowadays. It’s not lost on me that winning a World of Outlaws race in this day and age is giant; especially at a track I’m part-owner at. The response was just overwhelming. I thought we had a car that could come here and be competitive. We’ve raced here quite a few times with this car and it’s ran really well. To have it actually work out is pretty crazy though. This is really awesome and such a proud moment for us. This is a car we built ourselves and we just beat the Outlaws- holy crap! It’s a dream come true, and it happened at my home track.”

Following his dash win, Haudenschild bolted into the lead, while Carson Macedo, Blaney, and David Gravel all got past Aaron Reutzel for spots second through fourth. Haudenschild was ripping the fence and had extended his lead until catching lapped traffic on lap seven, which allowed Macedo to close in. One lap later though Haudenschild was able to break free of Macedo, while Blaney put a slider on Macedo in turn four to take second. Eleventh starting Brad Sweet cracked the top five when he passed both Brent Marks and Reutzel on lap 12.

Haudenschild was setting a wicked pace out front building his lead to more than seven seconds despite dealing with heavy traffic. Haudenschild had lapped up to eighth place and continued to bang the fence leaving everyone in amazement how not only did he not crash or suffer a flat tire, but also maintained his huge advantage. On Friday night at Attica Raceway Park, Haudenschild was a little more than a lap from a victory when D.J. Foos lost a wheel and Haudenschild was unable to avoid his spinning car. On Saturday night it was a caution for Reutzel's flat tire with five laps to go would be what doomed him.

The caution cleared all of the lapped cars that were between Haudenschild and Blaney and set up a five-lap sprint to the checkered flag. Blaney stuck right with Haudenschild getting along side Haudenschild on several occasions, but Haudenschild had the momentum around the top to maintain the lead. With the white flag waving and the fans on their feet, Haudenschild caught the turn two fence a little too hard this time getting his NOS Energy Drink #17 sideways allowing Blaney to blast by on the backstretch and capture one of, it not, the most popular wins in Sharon Speedway history.

“I knew that was my only chance,” Blaney explained. “That caution saved us, no doubt. I could see him up there and the lappers were catching him on the bottom, so the top was slowing down. He wasn’t going to move off it, so I thought I had a chance if I could get alongside him. I thought we were dead with two to go, but that mistake was all we needed.”

Blaney's 95th career World of Outlaws win also broke the record for the longest gap between a first and last career victory, making it 36 years, 1 month, and 16 days between his April 5, 1985 win at Tri-City (IL) Speedway and Saturday’s win! It was Blaney's 33rd career Sharon "410" Sprint Car win and 36th overall at his home track.

After dominating the first 34 laps, Haudenschild came home 0.802 of a second behind Blaney's #10 at the finish to earn $6,000. “I let my guys down,” expressed Haudenschild. “We’ve got a really fast race car, but I just pushed too hard and lost my momentum. Sometimes you get beat. If I’m gonna lose to anybody, I’m glad it’s Dave. He and my dad [Jac Haudenschild] grew up racing so for him to get an Outlaw win this late in his career at his home track, that’s special for the Blaney family.”

World of Outlaws racers Macedo, Gravel, and points leader Sweet finished second through fifth respectively. Marks was sixth in his first ever Sharon start. Brock Zearfoss raced from 12th to seventh. Logan Schuchart was eighth. Kraig Kinser went 13th to ninth as James McFadden rounded out the top 10. Last Saturday night's "410" Sprint Car feature winner, George Hobaugh, was running ninth, but lost four spots on the final lap to finish 13th as the highest finishing local racer.

After being fastest in warm-ups, Reutzel set fast time in qualifying with a lap of 13.342 then went on to win heat race one. Other heat race winners were Gravel and Haudenschild. After breaking in his heat race, Donny Schatz captured the last chance B main then went 21st to 11th in the feature as he continues to search for his first Series win of the season, which will be milestone win #300.

It was a trip down memory lane for those in attendance and watching on DIRTVision as not only did 58-year-old Dave Blaney win the World of Outlaws feature, but 61-year-old former "410" Sprint Car great Rod George brought down the curtain on the magical night winning the first appearance by the Pace Performance RUSH Sprint Car Series. George passed fellow former "410" Sprint Car veteran Arnie Kent on lap 13 to score the $800 win in the 20-lap Terry Bowser Excavating feature. "That was a lot of fun battling with Arnie (Kent)," expressed the Kittanning, Pa. racer. "I didn't want to touch him and we definitely had a good battle going there. I haven't raced in four or five years and didn't have much intention of doing anymore racing, but Ted Hull kept calling me over the winter so I decided to give it a try. I was never very good running without a wing. I've been struggling big time. These cars are so hard to drive. You have to be so smooth and keep the momentum. They don't have a lot of power if you screw up to get going again. Overall they are a ball to drive, but a lot tougher than I expected."

Kent and two-time RUSH Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Champion Chad Ruhlman brought the field to green with Kent taking the lead, while fourth starting George raced to second on the opening lap. Second year racer Tyler Newhart brought action to a halt when he flipped in turn three on lap two; he was okay. When racing resumed, sixth starting Nolan Groves moved into third past Ruhlman. By lap four, the top four of Kent, George, Groves, and Ruhlman pulled away.

Ruhlman slowed to a stop with 11 laps scored to bring out the event's final stoppage. This moved last year's RUSH Weekly Series Champion, Jeremy Weaver, who started ninth, into fourth. Back under green flag conditions, Kent and George raced side-by-side for the lead with George taking the top spot on the 13th circuit, while last year's RUSH "Futures Cup" Champion, Groves, followed in second.

George held off Groves over the final six laps to win by 1.255 seconds for his first win driving for veteran car owner Ted Hull in the Washington House/Alternative Power Sources-sponsored #41. George became the seventh different RUSH Sprint winner in 10 races run all-time at Sharon to go along with three career "410" wins at Sharon. George also becomes the fourth different winner in four RUSH Sprint races contested in the region in 2021.

Kent was third after the leading the first 12 laps. After crashing in his heat, Blaze Myers stormed through the field from his 19th starting spot to finish fourth after passing Steve Pedley on lap 19.

Jason Barney Rebounds for Another Lucas Oil ESS win at Thunder Mountain

CENTER LISLE, NY – The 2017 Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints Champion, Jason Barney, had an opening night he would like to forget two weeks ago at the Genesee Speedway. Getting into a couple of skirmishes resulting in a 14th place finish, the Brewerton, NY native led 22 of 25 laps at the Thunder Mountain Speedway to collect his third win on the fast 3/8ths mile oval. A win that netted him, $2,110

While Barney will admit that drawing the pole was key to his win, he does have a knack to be fast at Thunder Mountain. “Starting up front helps a lot, but I’ve also won here starting much deeper. We just seem to always have a good car here,” Barney went on, “This helps make up for our performance at Genesee, it actually frustrates me a little more knowing at Genesee I just wasn’t what I should have been.”

While the familiar #87 did led all but three laps, the final 23 laps went caution free and in typical Thunder Mountain, there were several grooves to use. Barney gave a unique perspective, “When it gets like that here you actually have no idea where you are on the track. I thought I lost the lead to Jake Karklin as he went by me,” he continued, “There are cars high, low, everywhere and you just race as hard as you can, wait for the checkered and listen to the one-way after to hear where you finished. I’m not kidding, especially tonight when we went green for so long.”

For Barney he was glad that his name was called first to visit victory lane. But there was another twist that added to the plot and that was sprinkles from the sky just as the sprinters were pushed off to start the NAPA Auto Parts 25 lap A-Main. “I had moisture get in-between my tear offs and it was hard to see. I didn’t know whether to rip them all off or keep them on cause I was probably going to need them in lapped traffic,” Barney was telling on the dilemma, “So I actually was keeping my shield open then closed! Probably wasn’t the best of ideas, but it’s what I did. I really just wanted to go in the pits change them and let’s start the race after. But I’m glad there are people out there a little smarter than me, the track was ready, and they gave us a great racetrack.”

The A-Main did have a red flag on lap two for an incident involving Scott Holcomb and Clint Roehrs with Holcomb’s mount going over. That actually was the only yellow/red displayed all night. On the restart, Billy VanInwegen took to the high side and was pressuring Barney, even trading some sliders to actually led laps six through eight officially. But as the front runners did get into lapped traffic, Barney opened up some distance.

Late in the event, Genesee winner in Davie Franek slipped by VanInwegen on lap 16 and took up the chase on Barney.

“Yea, I was hoping for maybe a yellow or a few more laps. We had a good car and was gaining on Jason,” Franek noted, “I wasn’t the best after the heats but the guys just kept working at it. It’s such a good team and I have so many good people helping me. We have a lot of racing coming up so we will see if we can keep the momentum going.”

VanInwegen hung on for third and it was indeed a “hang on” experience, “My motor starting skipping like crazy in the final laps and I did all I could do to hang on,” said Billy, “I actually was surprised that I still got third. It’s a little frustrating having the issues we did at Genesee and now here with a different car. We will find it, we have a real good team.”

Rounding out the top five were Sammy Reakes IV who won the dash for cash earlier and earned hard charger bonus money after starting in 13th. Jeff Cook had another solid Thunder Mountain outing taking fifth. The next five was made up off Dylan Swiernik, for his second consecutive sixth place finish, Matt Tanner, Dalton Herrick, Thomas Radivoy and Chuck Hebing.

Next weekend the Lucas Oil Tour will head to familiar stops on Memorial Day Weekend with Brewerton Speedway on Friday and Fulton Speedway on Saturday. Coming into next weekend, Davie Franek leads the points over Swiernik, Barney, Cook and Peebles.

McMullen, Schmidt, Sorce, Cullen pay
visits to PDTR victory lane

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) May 22, 2021 – On a beautiful early summer evening for racing, the fourth Plymouth Dirt Track Racing program of the 2021 season saw three familiar faces make their initial appearance of the 2021 campaign in victory lane and another racked up his second A-main triumph of the 2021 campaign on Saturday, May 22 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

In A-main action, two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh led flag-to-flag to earn his first A-main triumph of the 2021 season in the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty 360 Sprint Car headliner.

Veteran Jim Schmidt of Cleveland survived an incident-plagued Sheboygan’s Country B93.7 Late Model main event to claim his first A-main victory of the season in a time-shortened 12-lap race. Will Sorce of Franklin worked the high groove to perfection to rack up his second 25-lap Oostburg Automotive Grand National A-main victory of the 2021 campaign and Jesse Cullen of Chilton rolled to his first A-main tally of the season in the 25-lap Cellcom B Mod main event.

Brandon McMullen outpowered polesitter Tim Haddy of Waupun to seize the lead on in turn one of the opening lap of the 25-lap 360 Sprint Car main event from his outside front row starting position as third starting Adam Miller of Plymouth slipped into second.

On lap 3, the first of three caution flags appeared after two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee clipped the turn two water barrel, which resulted in water leaking onto the track.

Following the restart, Haddy and Miller dueled side by side for second before Miller assumed the spot. By lap 4, McMullen had built up a sizeable half-straightaway cushion over Miller at the front of the field.

On lap 8, McMullen caught the back of the field and began working through heavy lapped traffic. McMullen expertly sliced his way through the slower cars to maintain a comfortable lead over Miller.

With seven laps to go, Miller and Haddy made contact entering turn one, which resulted in race-ending damage to Haddy’s car. Miller was able to continue, while the fourth-place car of Sheboygan’s Travis Arenz, who started fifth, had to pay a visit to the work area after suffering a flat tire.

The third caution flag flew for a four-car incident in turn one on the ensuing restart.

With two lapped cars between himself and the second-place car of ninth starter Justin Miller of Plymouth, who had moved up to second, McMullen bolted away from the field on the final restart, while 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove, who started 17th, worked his way past Miller into second on lap 19.

Mullen pulled away in the closing laps to seal his 21st career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory and 31st career Midwest Sprint Car Association main event triumph by a full-straightaway margin over Schmidt, who came home second.

Justin Miller finished third, sixth starter Kevin Karnitz of West Bend placed fourth and Tyler Tischendorf of Waupaca, who started fourth, came home fifth.

The time-shortened 12-lap Late Model A main was plagued by seven caution flags, including two before the first official lap of the race could be completed.

When the race finally got underway, outside front row starter Charlie Schmidt of Cedar Grove grabbed the lead from polesitter Joe Bongiorno of Milwaukee in turn four of the opening lap. On lap 2, back-to-back caution flags again slowed the pace and resulted in single-file restarts as the norm for the remainder of the race.

On lap 3, three-time defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt, moved up from the third starting spot to pressure Charlie Schmidt for the lead before the fifth caution of the race appeared on lap four for a three-car incident along the backstretch.

When the race resumed, Justin Schmidt continued to hound Charlie Schmidt for the top spot. On lap 5, Justin Schmidt spun in turn four while challenging for the lead to bring out the sixth caution of the race. During the yellow flag period, Charlie Schmidt went to the pit area to change a flat tire, which handed the lead over to 11th starter Turk Letizia of Milwaukee.

Following the restart, sixth starter Jim Schmidt mounted a challenge for the lead along the high line. Three laps later, Jim Schmidt powered around Letizia to take over the top spot in turn two.

Jim Schmidt maintained the lead until the seventh caution was displayed on lap 12 for a two-car incident in turn two, which brought the race to an early end after reaching the time limit.

Jim Schmidt earned his 16th career PDTR Late Model A-main victory with Letizia second, 2016 PDTR Late Model champion Tim Buhler of Greenbush placed third after starting eighth, seventh starter Justin Ritchie of New London finished fourth and Justin Schmidt recovered from his early-race spin to place fifth.

Polesitter Donny Kulow of Elkhart Lake led the opening lap of the 25-lap Grand National A main before outside front row starter Luke Scholten of Oostburg worked the high groove to take over the lead in turn four on lap 2.

The lone caution flag of the race was displayed on lap 9 for debris in turn two.

Following the restart, two-time PDTR Grand National champion Don Sorce Jr. of West Allis, who started fourth, and Donny Kulow dueled side by side for second beginning on lap 12 with Kulow eventually maintaining second on lap 13.

On lap 18, fifth starter Will Sorce began to make his presence felt as he moved up to the outside line to gain third. One lap later, Sorce powered around Kulow to take over second and quickly set his sights on Scholten.

Sorce and Scholten battled door to door on lap 21 before Sorce surged past Scholten and into the lead.

Sorce pulled away over the final four laps to earn his third career PDTR Grand National A-main victory. Donny Kulow finished second, Don Sorce Jr. placed third, 2019 PDTR Grand National champion Tyler Kulow finished fourth after starting third and 2018 PDTR Grand National champ Matt Loehr of Dotyville wound up fifth after starting seventh.

Polesitter Spencer Long of Sheboygan Falls grabbed the lead on the drop of the green flag of the 25-lap B Mod A main.

As Long led, fourth starter Jesse Cullen slipped past outside front row starter Trevor Frank of Sheboygan to gain second place in the running order. The first of four caution flags appeared on lap 7 for a three-car incident in turn two.

On the restart, Long drifted high in turn two, which allowed Cullen to power into the lead on lap 8 with Frank in tow. After a pair of caution flags ensued on lap 11 and lap 13 for multi-car incidents, Cullen bolted out to a quarter-straightaway lead over Frank by lap 16.

The fourth and final caution flag appeared on lap 20 when Long made contact with the turn three wall. When race resumed, Cullen pulled away over the final five laps to secure his fourth career PDTR B Mod A-main victory by a half-straightaway margin over Frank, who had to settle for second.

Third starter Shane Long of Sheboygan Falls finished third, Rory Welch of Grafton moved up from his 11th starting spot to place fourth and eighth starter Jonathan Hitsman of Plymouth placed fifth.

Doug Wondra of Lomira claimed the 15-lap 360 Sprint Car B main.

PDTR action is scheduled to resume on Saturday, May 29 with action in the 360 Sprint Car, Late Model, Grand National and B Mod divisions. The Military Night program will offer free admission to all members of the U.S. armed forces with a valid I.D.

Grandstand gates open at 3:30 p.m. with hot laps at 4:30 p.m. racing at 5 p.m.

Pierce picks up win #2 of 2021 at River Cities Speedway

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (May 21, 2021) – There may be a new King of the Bullring at River Cities Speedway. Grand Forks’ Austin Pierce won eight races at the three-tenths mile oval in 2020. The two-time Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA series champion returned to victory lane in convincing fashion on Friday night.
Jack Croaker and Tim Estenson led the field of 18 Northern Outlaw Sprints to the green flag with Croaker jumping out to a big lead on lap one. Fourth-place starting Austin Pierce moved into second by the completion of the opening lap.

Pierce quickly went after Croaker and took the point with a slider off turn four on lap three.

The driver of the Opp Construction / Lithia Ford No. 2A checked out from the rest of the field while Croaker, Estenson, Jade Hastings, Nick Omdahl and Wade Nygaard all battled for second.

With eight to go, Hastings found a way around Croaker to take the second spot. Pierce had well over a full straightaway advantage over Hastings, but Hastings went to work on reeling in Pierce.

With five to go, Pierce was mired in heavy traffic which made his lead evaporate. Hastings had a run on Pierce with two laps to go, but a caution slowed the field.

On the green-white-checkered restart, Pierce set sail and opened up a comfortable lead. Nygaard came up to challenge Hastings for second, but it was well behind Pierce, who collected his 36th career NOSA win.

Hastings held on to the runner-up spot as Nygaard rounded out the podium.

“I can’t thank my crew enough. They set this car up and it’s been spot on almost every night. It was an awesome race track. There was a nice top groove that reminded me of the old River Cities. I ran the bottom there right away and that helped me to get around Croaker for the lead. Overall it was a good night,” said Pierce in victory lane.

Shane Cottle Throttles to ILLI-ANA Showdown Win with POWRi WAR
Belleville, IL. (05/22/2021) Night Two of the ILLI-ANA Showdown featuring the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League would find many of the familiar night one faces mounting charges to the front of the pack as Shane Cottle was able to capitalize early and use throttle control on the low-line to grab the feature victory.

With an outstanding field of thirty POWRi WAR drivers making the trek to Charleston Speedway, early on-track excitement would find Colton Cottle, Trey Gropp, Aric Gentry, and Zach Daum wheel their way to heat race victories with Anthony Nicholson gaining the semi-feature win.

Earning the night’s High Point Qualifier Award would find the speedy Colton Cottle starting in the pole position as Joe B. Miller flaked his outside on the initial feature start. Separating themselves from the field in the opening lap would see Joe B. Miller seize the early lead with an immense pile-up occurring behind the leader on the second lap involving seven cars.

After the caution was cleared and the field was narrowed, Miller would again take the lead only to see Brandon Mattox mount a charge to the front off turn two taking the lead on lap four. Shane Cottle would follow Mattox to the front only to overtake and capture the lead on lap six.

With racing action hot and heavy a blanket could be thrown over the top six drivers as Shane Cottle maintained the racing advantage, Miller maintaining second, and the hard-charging Anthony Nicholson closing on the leading pair quickly.

As laps clicked off at a rapid pace, Shane Cottle would spread the field by nearly a four-second lead using the low-line and throttle control to perfection, never looking back to claim the feature win. Joe B. Miller and Anthony Nicholson would round out the podium finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League at Charleston Speedway for the final night of the ILLI-ANNA Showdown.

“This means a lot to me, winning at our home track, in front of a crowd like this, it’s hard not to be happy, we’re definitely going to be celebrating tonight,” said a thrilled Shane Cottle in front of a cheering Charleston crowd after displaying a proper clinic of celebratory doughnuts down the front-stretch.

Hamilton Wins Drivers Dual at Skagit Speedway

5/22/21

Alger, WA – A drivers dual through slower traffic thrilled the crowd at Skagit Speedway on Saturday night. As the dust settled, it was Greg Hamilton taking the win in the 360 division, with Justin Youngquist becoming the first repeat winner of the year in the Sportsman Sprints and BJ Wild running away with the Modified main.

While Hamilton led every lap of the $2,100 to win Budweiser 360 Sprint main event, he did not have it easy. Upon entering traffic around the halfway point of the main, Trey Starks was on him, putting pressure on Hamilton at every turn. Greg rose to the occasion time and again, decisively dealing with lapped traffic, making Starks work to keep pace. Coming to the white flag, Hamilton and Starks tried splitting a slower car, with Hamilton choosing high and clearing while Starks and the slower car came together, sending Trey spinning and setting up a green-white-checkered finish. Hamilton turned away a Jason Solwold slidejob attempt on the restart and drove on to the win, with Solwold running second and Brock Lemley taking third. Tanner Holmes earned hard charger, while Chase Goetz set fast time. Starks and Lemley won heats.

Justin Youngquist became the first repeat winner of the year at Skagit Speedway, taking the feature win in the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints. Youngquist led the first ten laps of the main in the Dynes Racing entry but lost the top spot to Kelsey Carpenter on lap 11. Carpenter was stretching his lead before contact with a slower car sent him tumbling, giving Justin the top spot once again. With lead in hand, Justin was dominant over the back half of the main, never letting his competition close and he grabbed win number two on the year over Malachi Gemmer and Corey Summers. Gemmer earned hard charger honors, while Carpenter was quick time. Cory Swatzina and Joe Lyon won the heat races.

In the Skagit Aggregates Modifieds, BJ showed himself as the class of the field, leading every lap except the first one in taking his first Skagit Speedway win. Wild drove around the outside of Craig Moore to take the lead on lap two and survived six restarts to take the win. A mix of four drivers battled hard for second, with Tyson Blood coming out on top ahead Blair Shoemaker, Craig Moore and Rick Smith in that order. Heat wins went to Wild and Blood.

Dussel claims thriller 410s at Fremont; Stroup and Roepke earn 305 wins; another truck win for Valenti

Saturday, May 22, 2021

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Fremont Speedway’s defending 410 track champion Nate Dussel and his George Dussel team have had their ups and downs this season, but they put it all together Saturday, May 22 on Gressman Powersports/Level Performance Night. After a poor heat race performance, Dussel’s crew went to work and it paid off as he held off DJ Foos and Cole Macedo in a thriller for his 26th career victory at “The Track That Action Built.”

“It’s been a frustrating year. I feel like we just can’t quite find the drive this car had. I don’t know if it’s tires or what. These guys worked their tails off…we changed everything after that heat…you saw how terrible we were. Night and day difference. Holding off DJ (Foos)…he’s been electric here. I know Bill and Cathy (Berrier) are watching at home because this is on The Cushion which is awesome. This is dedicated to them. They are going through hell. We just want them to know we are always thinking about them…although we aren’t there fighting beside them we are fighting with them with our prayers. Also Scott Gressman has been a huge supporter of George Dussel Racing for a really long time and Scott and Josh are people I consider close friends and it’s great to have them here tonight,” said Dussel beside his Northwest Installation/Industrial Movers, S&S Hauling and Excavating, Fausey Farms, JRC Transportation, Berrier Custom Fabrication, Kistler Engines, NuFarm, Al Davis Carpet, Real Geese Decoys, A Plus Auto Center, Box 7, Speedways Bar & Grille, DGGI, Wurtec, Wonderly Carpet Care, All Star Performance, Keizer Wheels, BRS, Kistler Racing Products backed #1.

The Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints put on two fantastic features – a make-up from the Pub 400 Night season opener and the regular night’s feature. In the make-up feature Fremont’s Dustin Stroup took advantage of a little mistake from race-long leader Logan Riehl to grab the lead on lap 18 and held off Alvin Roepke on a restart with just three laps to go to earn his third victory of the season and fifth career win.

“I just drove it as hard as I could down on the bottom on that restart. I knew exactly where he (Roepke) was going to be on the restart…this is his type of race track. So last couple of laps I just buried it down on the bottom. Then that last lap I saw him under me and I protected the bottom in three and four. Fremont wasn’t my best track…we did better at Attica, but we have something figured out here,” said Stroup of his Automatic Fire Protection, MLP Lawncare & Snow Removal, Vantage Branding, Level Performance, Advance Auto Parts #10x.

In the night’s regular feature, Roepke took the lead from Jamie Miller on lap eight and survived a couple of restarts to drive to his 10th career Fremont win.

“The car was pretty good all night. I think we had the wrong gear in that first feature. It’s neat to win on Level/Gressman night because we have a Dennis Level motor in this thing and my good buddy Joe Darmofal has been sponsoring race cars for 40 years and he’s here tonight. This motor was last rebuilt in 2017 and we freshened it up this year and it really helped. I’m so tickled pink to be in victory lane at Fremont Speedway,” said Roepke beside his Darmofal Racing/Fremont Auto Parts/NAPA backed #99.

Three time Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck track champion Shawn Valenti has won twice already in 2021. But Saturday he had to work for his third and he had to start 11th and then battle with his teammate Jeff Babcock, finally taking the lead with just four laps to go to earn his 64th career Fremont win. He is just 12 victories away from tying Art Ball for the track’s all-time win lead.

“I tried to bide my time getting up through there and finally got some traffic opened up and was able to get a run on Jeffrey. Pretty awesome to race my teammate…I always know he’s going to race me clean. This truck has been good for all these years,” said Valenti beside his Best Performance Motorsports, A Plus Auto Center, Craig Miller Trucking, KS Sales & Service, Gressman Powersports, Dave Story Equipment, Speedways Bar and Grill backed #7B.

Dussel and Duane Zablocki brought the field to green for the 30 lap A-main for the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints with Dussel taking the lead. Just two laps in and the battle for second was entertaining involving John Ivy, DJ Foos and Zablocki. Following a quick caution, Dussel maintained his lead with Foos now moving into second and Cole Macedo taking third.

Dussel found the back of the field on lap nine and Foos and Macedo quickly closed. Macedo took second on lap 14 and drove to Dussel’s outside to challenge. With just eight laps to go, Macedo had a run on Dussel but a lapped car held up him and Dussel was able to lengthen his advantage. With six laps to go Dussel had a bit of a clear track and began to build a two second lead.

Meanwhile Foos rebounded and regained second on lap 26 and began to chew into Dussel’s lead. As they drove to the white flag Foos was a car length behind Dussel. Dussel hit his marks perfectly and took the win over Foos, Macedo, Zablocki and Stuart Brubaker.

In the make-up 305 A-main, pole-sitter Logan Riehl jumped into the early lead over Stroup, Valenti and Matt Foos. Riehl, last season’s rookie of the year, built a sizeable lead but cautions on laps four, nine and 10 kept the field close. The car on the move was 13th starter Roepke who had moved into third by lap 12.

With seven laps to go Riehl bobbled on the cushion in turn four and Stroup pounced, grabbing the lead with Roepke moving into second. Just as Stroup was set to enter lapped traffic with three laps to go a caution gave him a clear track. Roepke drove to Stroup’s inside on the restart but the leader was able to fend off the challenge. Roepke repeated the move after taking the white flag but Stroup blocked the line perfectly and drove to the win. Roepke, Foos, Jamie Miller and Riehl rounded out the top five.

In the regular 25-lap A-main for the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints Miller grabbed the early lead over Roepke, Jimmy McGrath, Mike Keegan and Riehl. A caution on lap four bunched up the field and on the restart Roepke used his patented bottom line to drive into the lead. Roepke quickly built a two second lead by lap 12 with Miller, McGrath, Riehl and Stroup in pursuit.

A caution with 10 laps to go wiped out Roepke’s lead but gave him an open track which he used to his advantage to once again build a two second lead with five laps to go. Miller and McGrath put on a battle for second, trading the spot several times. Roepke drove to the win over McGrath, Miller, Stroup and a charging Brandon Moore.

Dustin Keegan and Cory Ward brought the field to green for the 20-lap A-main for the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks with Keegan taking the lead while Steve Sabo drove into second. Sabo took the lead a circuit later bringing Jim Holcomb into second with Ward, Kyle Lagrou and Dan Henning in pursuit.

Lagrou moved into second on lap seven just as the caution flew. On the restart Sabo maintained the lead with a great battle for second involving Lagrou, Holcomb, Babcock and Jamie Miller. Babcock took third on lap nine and drove into second a lap later. With nine laps to go there were battles throughout the field with Sabo trying to hold off Babcock while Miller, Holcomb and Valenti battled for third.

Babcock took the lead on lap 12 just before a debris caution. On lap 14 after another caution restart, Valenti took third and a lap later drove into second. Valenti edged Babcock for the lead on lap 16 just before a caution. On the restart Valenti was able to pull away for the win over Babcock, Miller, Holcomb and Lagrou.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, May 29 on NAPA Auto Parts of Fremont Night with the FAST 410 winged sprints, Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series non-wing sprints, 305 sprints and dirt trucks in action.

Daison Pursley Takes Night Two of Illiana Showdown at Charleston Speedway

Charleston, IL. (05/22/2021) At the end of the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League show at Charleston Speedway, Daison Pursley stood victorious for his third career win with the league. Pursley’s victory came in the second and final night of the Illiana Showdown at Charleston Speedway. Young guns Brent Crews and Bryant Wiedeman followed him to the checkered flag and earned their career best finishes as well.

Starting fifth on the grid, Pursley went to work at the drop of the green flag while his competitor Emerson Axsom led the opening lap, Cole Bodine and Brent Crews jockeyed for the second position. Axsom continued to gap himself from the rest of the field, while only 10 laps in, Pursley found himself take over the second position from Crews and set his sights on the leader. He threw a slider on Axsom but couldn’t make it stick, but never gave up.

Both Axsom and Pursley exchanged positions for the lead, as Axsom got away from the field he stopped for a flat left rear tire, which brought out the caution. Pursley presumed the lead on the restart. Coming back green, Pursley distance himself from the field but the rookie Corey Day driving for Clausen Marshall Racing, found a grove on the bottom and ran down the leader.

After a late race red flag for Jade Avedisian and Mitchell Davis the field bunched back up. Pursley continued to show the way and lead the twenty-two-car field to the checkered flag, Brent Crews earned his career best finish of second, and Bryant Wiedeman earned his career best finish of third. The rookie, Corey Day finished in the fourth position and Joe B Miller rounded out the top five.

“Tonight, it kind of just played out in my favor and Beau had this thing on rails. it’s the reason we are fast right now, and the consistence is there, and I feel like it’s time to pick up these wins. To have this good momentum going into midget week in two weeks will be pretty key.” Daison Pursley

“It was a great race and second is pretty good, I would have liked to have a caution and I think we could have had a shot, but it was a really fun race.” Brent Crews.

“It was a really good night in the books, just looking to get a second or maybe even a first. I got to keep working on my marks on those restarts and I think we will eventually get there.” Bryant Wiedeman.

Wilmot Raceway

(Wilmot, Wis., Saturday, May 22, 2021)--Kansasville's Ryan Marshall scored his first ever 20-lap Autometer/Brewington Electric Wisconsin Wingless Sprint feature victory Saturday, May 22 at Wilmot Raceway. Marshall held off the late surges of runnerup Jimmy Sivia of Winthrop Harbor, IL and third place Chris Dodd of Trevor to become the fourth different main event winner in as many Wilmot events this season.
"I was waiting for Jimmy (Sivia) to try a last surge, but I never saw it," said Marshall, the 2020 Wingless Rookie of the Year. "To finally win one is awesome."
South Milwaukee's Jay Orr made a rare Wilmot start pay off in the Bandit 4-Cylinder Stock Cars as he won the 20-lap feature by over a straightaway over the rest of the field. Union Grove's Dale Ehleiter took second in a tight battle with Scott Ellis of Lake Villa, IL third.
"The car ran super," said Orr. "I just wanted to shake it down to get it ready for the rest of the season. I will probably make one more start here at Wilmot as we travel a lot."
Caledonia's Chris Carlson made it four for four in modified features this season, scoring the 20-lap main event win. Carlson overtook the lead ironically, with 12 laps remaining matching his car number. Carlson went on to the win with Eagle's Steve Mueller holding off Genoa City's Nick Simons, who was the early race leader, for second.
"I have to thank my crew who has given me a great car," said Carlson. "It has been running great."
Cody Erickson of Algonquin, IL won the 10-lap street stock non-points feature. Scott Quarnstrom of Lake Villa held off New Berlin's Jake Banish in a tight battle for second.
"I have to thank my dad (Dave) for all of his support, as well as my sponsors," said Erickson. "Thanks to the other drivers who came even though it wasn't for points. At least we got to race."

Jared Zionkowski, who started tenth moved into top five on the completion of lap number seven. With the completion of lap number ten, Dale Schweikart was in heavy lapped traffic while Dakota attempted to keep pace with his father.

As the duo raced through lapped traffic, Dakota Schweikart tried to make quick work of the lapped cars to catch his father, and on one occasion he passed two lapped cars at the same time as he exited turn two. “I was hoping lapped traffic would work to my advantage tonight,” said Dakota in a post-race interview. “Just when I thought I had a chance to catch him, he would put another lapped car between us.” Twelfth place starter Garrett Bard moved into the top five with five laps remaining in the event. Dale Schweikart continued to weave this way through traffic and help off the attempts from Dakota Schweikart Jeffrey Weaver finished third, Garrett Bard made a last lap pass to earn the fourth position and Aaron Jacobus completed the top five.

By the midway mark of the race, Long powered by Bitler to take the lead with Noah Jensen of Wapwallopen in pursuit. Three-time feature winner Brandon Moser advanced for his 6th place starting spot to take the third position on lap number eleven. While Long held a three car advantage over the rest of the field, the battle was heating up for second with Jensen, Moser and Bitler in hot pursuit. When the checkered flag waved, Long secured his first win of the season over Jensen, Bitler, Moser and Tressler. Sixth through tenth belonged to AY Schilling AJ Hoffman, Rooster Peters, Kevin Way and Chris Orwig Jr. Heat races were won by Long and AJ Stroup.

In 270 Micro Sprint action, Mill Hall’s Timmy Bitner advanced from his 4th place starting spot to lead the opening lap. Ninth place starter, Perchak took command of the field by the completion of lap number 5. Weaver followed suit and claimed the second position with Brandon Spencer in tow.

The red flag waved on lap number eight when Cory Stabled rolled his car on the front stretch. On the restart, Spenser took the second spot while Cody Seigel who started 12th moved into the top five by the completion of lap number nine. On the white flag lap, Perchak lead Spencer and Seigel. Seigel made a last lap pass to wrestle the runner up postion away from Spenser, while Bitler and Weaver finished in the top five.

Following the restart, Small had mechanical issues, giving the top spot to Snyder. Snyder held off the late race challenge to claim the victory over last week’s winner Jimmy Moyer, Maddox Smith, Skyler Witchley and Keith Haagen.

SANDERS SOARS TO FIFTH OCEAN SPRINTS WIN OF 2021 SEASON ON FRIDAY

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (May 22, 2021) – Justin Sanders continued his red-hot start to the 2021 season in the Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo, driving to a three second advantage for his fifth win of the season on Friday. Sanders led all 30-laps of the eighth round of the 360 Sprint Car Series, extending his points lead at the Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif.

Sanders led time trials, won his heat race, and claimed the dash to earn the pole for the feature. Concord’s Joey Ancona fell backwards at the start after starting third, before spinning in turn four for a caution. On the restart, Sanders leapt ahead of Bud Kaeding before the red flag flew for Jason Chisum of Salinas flipping in turn three.

Keith Day, Jr. used the restart to advance past Auburn’s Andy Forsberg for third. Morgan Hill’s Nick Ringo passed Iowa’s Austin McCarl for fifth as well. Jeremy Chisum spun in turn four for the next caution on lap eight.

Sanders and Kaeding led the way through the next restart before Chowchilla’s Eric Humphries and 2019 USAC West Coast 360 champion Tristan Guardino of Fremont both stopped in turn three. Forsberg retired to the pits under the caution while Guardino pitted for repairs.

A three-wide battle for second ensued on the restart, with McCarl attempting to go up the middle of Day and Kaeding. The hole closed, with McCarl and Day making contact. McCarl was tagged head on by J.J. Ringo then collected by both Nick Ringo and Jerry Bonnema. The flurry of hits sent McCarl up on his side on the backstretch. The fracas ended the night for Nick Ringo but all others involved rejoined the event.

Ancona made a big comeback through the field, advancing into fourth on the restart. Kaeding did a 360-degree spin in turn two on lap 15 but the caution fell to drop Kaeding from second to the tail of the lead lap. Ancona made another big maneuver when he slid past J.J. Ringo for second on lap 16.

Sanders built up a sizeable lead of over four seconds which was cut in half when he bicycled and went over the cushion in turn three. He rejoined and continued building up his lead in lapped traffic. Sanders claimed win number five on the year at Ocean Speedway over Ancona and J.J. Ringo. Brothers of Kyler and Koen Shaw drove from the eighth row to finish fourth and fifth.

Dennis Simunovich of Hollister topped a season-best 19 IMCA Sport Mods for the 20-lap victory. Kelly Campanile of San Ramon went outside Max Baggett to lead lap one. Baggett’s car went straight up the track in turn one on the second lap, washing into Campanile to bounce them from the front of the field. Simunovich snuck by to take the lead. A multi-car skirmish in turn one brought out a caution on the next lap.

Adriane Frost of Watsonville moved from eighth to second by the third lap of the race while Brentwood’s Fred Ryland drove eleventh to third by lap six. Ryland went around Frost for second and then tried high and low to pass Simunovich. Simunovich held on for the win over Ryland, Frost, Billy Robertson, and Randy Miller.

San Jose’s Rob Gallaher won his third Hobby Stock feature of the year in the 20-lap main event. Santa Cruz driver Terry Campion used the outside to take the lead and then encountered lapped traffic by lap seven.

Campion made contact with the lapped car of Bobby Gallaher, cutting down the left front tire for the leader. Although Campion was able to change the tire and rejoin the field, the incident handed the top position to Rob Gallaher. Gallaher never relinquished it, leading Wally Kennedy, points leader Joe Gallaher, Norm Ayers, and Jerry Skelton at the finish.

DJ Keldsen of Newman led the final 14-laps of the Four Banger feature for his first win of the season. Watsonville’s Richard Mitchell, Tony Gullo, Nicole Beardsley, and Kate Beardsley rounded out the top-five finishers.

Camarillo’s Tommy Velasquez III dominated the South Bay Dwarf Car feature, taking the lead from Sean Catucci on lap two and never relinquishing the position. Velasquez, Catucci, Punky Pires, Eric Weisler, and Mark Biscardi were the top-five at the checkered flag.

Ocean Speedway continues on Friday June 4 with Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo, Hobby Stocks, Four Bangers, and South Bay Dwarf Cars. For more information and tickets, visit www.OceanSpeedway.com

 

 

Clouser Shines in POWRi WAR at Charleston’s ILLI-ANA Showdown Night One

Belleville, IL. (05/21/2021) Opening Night of the ILLI-ANA Showdown featuring the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League would see outstanding racing action all over the beautifully prepared surface as Mario Clouser wheeled his way to the front in a caution-free feature to claim the feature event.

With an entry list of thirty-two POWRi WAR drivers logging in to Charleston Speedway, early on-track battles would see Wesley Smith, Shane Cottle, Mario Clouser, and Evan Mosely all claim their respective heat race victories as Trey Gropp earned the semi-feature win.

Gaining the night’s High Point Qualifier award, Mario Clouser would lead the pack of Lucas Oil POWRi WAR Sprint League drivers to the initial green flag start with an extremely fast Garrett Aitken lined up to the outside. Using a courageous lap one maneuver, Clouser would capitalize by sling-shotting to the high side and taking the early feature advantage.

Never relinquishing the top spot for the caution-free feature Clouser would not go untested as Aitken remained hot on the trail every circuit as lap traffic came into play late in the event. Shane Cottle, Wesley Smith, and Zach Daum would all battle all over the fast-racing surface trying to run down the top-two drivers in an action-packed feature.

“The lap traffic was intense for sure, I saw Garrett coming after me but held my line and knew it was time to go”, said feature winner Mario Clouser in an incredibly happy victory lane after claiming the feature win. Garrett Aitken would finish in a hard-fought runner-up positioning with Shane Cottle rounding out the Charleston Speedway feature podium for the Lucas Oil POWRi WAR Sprint League Night One of the ILL-ANA Showdown.

Kofoid Captured Victory from the Tail at Charleston Speedway

Charleston, IL. (05/21/2021) Michael “Buddy” Kofoid made the trip to victory lane at Charleston Speedway after overcoming tagging the tail early in the 30-lap race after he spun. Kofoid earned his fifth victory on the 2021 season which brings him to twelve career victories with the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League.

Kofoid out of Penngrove, CA found himself behind the ball in the feature after getting tangled with a few cars and spinning on lap 4. Kofoid had to rejoin the field in his Keith Kunz Motorsports No. 67 in the 23rd position. After overcoming all the traffic, slide jobs from teammates, and conquering the fast Charleston Speedway, he found himself back in victory lane for the fifth time this season.

The initial green flag was short lived, but it didn’t do any harm to the front runner, Daison Pursley who led the field to green. Jade Avedisian followed behind Pursley in the runner up position and the two separated themselves from the field. As Pursley grew his advantage further from the field, Avedisian got upside down in turn two.

The field regrouped after the quick caution for Avedisian, meanwhile Kofoid snuck himself into the fifth position. After the green flag waved once again, and the field bunched back up, Kofoid found himself charging into the second position and set his sights on the leader, Pursley. With nine laps remaining, Kofoid stuck the slide job and claimed the top spot from teammate Pursley.

Kofoid led the field to the checkered flag and was followed by Pursley in second, Wiedeman crossing the finish line in third, Joe B Miller in fourth and Emerson Axsom rounded out the top five for night one at Charleston Speedway.

The Luas Oil POWRi National Midget League will be back in action tomorrow, Saturday May 22nd at Charleston Speedway.

Gravel takes advantage of Haudenschild's heartbreak for Attica World of Outlaw win; Keegan earns 1st 305 victory .001

Friday, May 21, 2021

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – There’s an old saying “sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.” Watertown, Connecticut’s David Gravel was both Friday, May 21 at Attica Raceway Park for the Kistler Engines Classic featuring the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series. Gravel inherited the lead when Sheldon Haudenschild tangled with a lapped car coming to the white flag. Gravel then held off 10-time series champion Donny Schatz to score his fourth World of Outlaws win of 2021.

In a 40-lap A-main that featured seven lead changes, it appeared Haudenschild was headed to the victory. As he raced through turns three and four coming to the white flag, a lapped car lost a left rear wheel and collected the leader. Gravel then held off a charging Schatz for his second career Attica victory.

“To be honest I was terrible those last two laps. Sheldon had us covered….this is pretty close to a hometown track for him and it sucks but I’ll take it. These deals are hard to win. My guys gave me a great car but it faded a little. Then I put the wing back and we closed on Sheldon. I don’t know if I could have gotten him,” said Gravel of his Huset’s Speedway/Jackson Motorplex/Showdown June 20-26/High Performance/JRC Transportation backed #2.

“It’s my brother-in-law’s birthday and he’s down in Florida celebrating in my pool and I’m in Ohio,” joked Gravel. “I want to dedicate this to a special friend who is battling health issues.”

For Schatz, it was yet another great run. “We have been so good and the guys have worked their tails off. The results don’t show how fast we have been but we will turn this around,” said the driver of the Carquest/Ford Performance/Sage Fruit backed #15.

Meyerstown, Pennsylvania’s Brent Marks has passed a ton of cars against the World of Outlaws the past couple of seasons and Friday at Attica was no different as he charged from 19th to a third place showing. “The car was just so maneuverable. I could go anywhere and was really making up time in the middle,” he said beside his M&M Painting and Construction/BAPS Paints backed machine.

While the 40-lap World of Outlaw feature was filled with drama and entertainment, the 25-lap A-main for the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints was equally exciting. Fremont, Ohio’s Mike Keegan edged defending track champion Paul Weaver by .001 seconds in the non-stop affair for his first ever sprint car win.

“I can’t believe it….I thought he got me. This is awesome. I can’t thank my guys enough and my dad for his hard work,” said Keegan beside his Level Utilities, BL Minich Trucking, Kistler Engines, Kistler Racing Products, Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome, Fremont Fence, Liberty Tax, NAPA, MAK Salon, Linder’s Speed Equipment, Seagate Sandblasting backed machine.

Haudenschild and Brandon Spithaler brought the field to green for the 40-lap Kistler Engines Classic with Spithaler leading the first lap. While battling for the lead Spithaler jumped the cushion in turn four to bring out the caution and handing the lead to Haudenschild. On the second lap Trey Jacobs and Anthony Macri tangled with Macri ending up on his side. On the restart Haudenschild led Gravel, Brad Sweet and Schatz. After a third lap was recorded, Aaron Reutzel spun. When the green flew so did Haudenschild as he pulled away from Gravel, Sweet Schatz and Carson Macedo.

Haudenschild’s lead was 1.5 seconds when Reutzel brought out another caution on lap eight. On the restart Gravel got up on the wheel and drove into the lead exiting turn two but Haudenschild crossed back over to lead lap nine but Gravel powered back by and led laps 10 through 17 as he and Haudenschild raced through heavy lapped traffic. Haudenschild drove back into the lead on lap 18 as Gravel continued to pressure. Gravel regained the lead on lap 20 with Haudenschild back to the point on lap 22.

Haudenschild drove to over a three second lead by lap 27 as Schatz took second on lap 23. With 10 laps to go Haudenschild had a commanding lead over Schatz, Gravel, Macedo, Sweet and Marks. With three laps to go Gravel took back the second position setting up the dramatic finish.

In the 25-lap 305 sprint feature, Keegan and Brenden Torok brought the field to green with Torok grabbing the lead over Keegan, Justin Lusk and Weaver. Keegan took over the point on lap three with Weaver moving into second. Weaver drove to the cushion on lap eight to take the lead but Keegan stayed within striking distance as Jamie Miller, Torok, Kasey Jedrzejek and Lusk battling for fourth.

Weaver and Keegan raced side by side through lapped traffic. With five laps to go Weaver and Keegan were neck-and-neck. As they raced into turns three and four for the final time Keegan slid in front of Weaver who crossed over and it was a drag race to the checkers with Keegan earning the victory by an inch.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, May 28 for Steinle Chevrolet Buick Night with the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group, the NAPA of Bryan 305 AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales and the UMP Late Models in action.

Harli White wins 22nd Annual Run for the Rabbit at Limaland

May 21, 2021
Lima, OH
by Gerry Keysor

The fans at Limaland Motorsports Park had waited since August of 2019 to see sprint cars return to the 1/4 mile bullring, and they were treated to an amazing night of racing. Lindsay, Oklahoma's Harli White piloted the Ed Neumeister No. 11N to victory in the 22nd running of the Run for the Rabbit for the K&L Ready Mix Sprint Invaders. No. 65 Todd Sherman picked up his 50th career Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modified victory. Lima, Ohio's Tony Anderson bagged his 49th career Bud Thunderstock victory, and 54th feature win at Limaland overall.

Kicking off racing action were the Narthwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds. No. 9C Troy Cattarene and Todd Sherman would make up the front row, with Sherman grabbing the lead out of turn 2. The next 4 cars somehow ran 4 wide thru turns 3 and 4 with No. 16 Jeff Koz grabbing second. Multiple cautions would mar the 20 lap feature with Koz getting caught up in a lap 16 skirmish with a lapped car that would end his night. Sherman would cruise to his 50th career Limaland UMP Modified victory over No. 3W Dylan Woodling, No. 34x Shane O'Connor, No. T5X Bub Roberts, and No. 11H Mike Hohlbein.

Next up was the 25 lap K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders feature honoring Limaland Legend Travis "The Rabbit" Miller. No. 49 Shawn Dancer and No. 17 Jared Horstman would bring the field to green with Horstman grabbing the lead briefly until caution would wave for No. 2 Ricky Peterson failing a slide job attempt on Dancer that saw the No. 49 get into the wall in turn 4 and Peterson pick up top wing damage. A complete restart would see Harli White inherit the pole position and she didn't waste the opportunity. White would take off with the lead and try to stretch it out over Horstman. The leaders would find themselves in lapped traffic on lap 6 and Horstman began to close on the leader. On lap 11, No. 2S Kyle Sauder spun in turn 4, right in front of the leaders, was able to do a 360 and the race stayed green. Horstman got as close as 2 car lengths multiple times to White while the 2 worked lapped traffic, until caution waved on lap 19 for a spinning No 22M of Dan McCarron, and No. 27w Tyler Gunn, setting up for a final restart. White took advantage of the clear track to pull away for the victory, the first for a female in NRA Sprint Invader competition, and the first for White at Limaland. No. 22L Connor Leoffler would charge late to finish 2nd, with No. 22H Randy Hannagan 3rd, Ricky Peterson would hang on to finish 4th, and Horstman fading to complete the top 5.

Finishing up the nights racing action were the Bud Thunderstocks in their 15 lap A Main. No. 23 Casey Barr and No. 7c Jordan Conover would lead the field to green, with No. 22T Tony Anderson heading to the bottom and Conover up high to split around Barr. Barr would have problems early after contact with the No. 7W of Dan Wooten. Barr would lose some sheet metal on the track, bringing out the caution and sending him to the tail. Anderson would pull out to the lead on the restart over Conover, who immediately had to deal with a charging Todd Sherman, piloting the No. 60 Thunderstock. Sherman would get by Conover on lap 6 and closed to Anderson's rear bumper. He would run out of time as Anderson would take the checkers and nab his 49th career Limaland Bud Thunderstock victory, and his 54th career Limaland victory overall. Sherman would settle for second with No. 57 Jeffrey Jessup 3rd, Conover 4th, and No. 74D Craig Dippman completing the top 5.

Limaland Motorsports Park kicks off the Memorial Day weekend next Friday Night as Tim Hogan's Carpet presents the 23rd Annual Memorial Cup, and Inaugural Ron Kahle Jr Memorial. Kahle was a huge supporter of not only Limaland, and the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders, but also UNOH and racing in general.

Hendershot Takes Career First

Donnie Hendershot of Clear Spring, Md., made career PA Sprint Series race #71 extra special Saturday night, earning victory #1 in the 25-lap feature at Path Valley Speedway.

Hendershot, who began racing with PASS in 2013 after a successful tenure in micro sprints, had a pair of runner-up finishes on his resume, but had only run four times in each of the past two seasons and hadn’t scored a top-5 finish since late 2018. Still, when the opportunity presented, he knew exactly what to do, and the Hendershot Siding/Hendershot Farms #31 was up to the task.

After finishing second in his heat race, Hendershot drew the outside second row for the feature. Outside front-row starter John Walp of Wapwallopen, the defending Path Valley RaceSaver Champion, darted into the lead but spun in the first turn. That moved Hendershot up to the front row.

The red flag had come out for the double mishap of Walp’s spin and a collision between Alyssa Rowe and Tyler Cochran as the field came to a halt. When the race finally got underway for the second start, Hendershot outpaced Reed and grabbed the lead, stretching it out until lapped traffic closed the leaders.

The lapped cars ended up costing Reed rather than Hendershot, though, as the second-place runner made contact with a lapped machine (pulling a huge wheelie in the process), allowing Jeff Weaver of Lock Haven to slip into the runner-up spot, where he finished. Defending PASS and IMCA/RaceSaver National Champion Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery also made it past Reed to take third place, while Reed holding on to finish fourth, ahead of Justin Mills of Bloomingburg, N.Y.

Ryan Lynn, Dom Melair, Jared Zionkowski, Branstin Shue and Ken Duke Jr. completed the top 10.

In victory lane, Hendershot gave special mention to his brother for having stuck with him throughout his racing career.

Heat winners for the 24-car field were Reed, Weaver and Mills.

Zionkowski was the hard charger of the race, moving up 14 spots from his 22nd starting position to eighth. Duke made a 10-position charge, and Dom Melair advanced seven spots in his first start in the #36. Jared picked up a brand new right rear tire from HTMA for making the most passes.

This Saturday, PASS returns to Selinsgrove Speedway, where the May 8 program was rained out. The USAC East Coast Wingless 360 Sprints, limited late models and roadrunners also will be on the schedule. Racing is scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m.

Henderson, Prouty and Lambertz Triumphant at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (May 16, 2021) - Justin Henderson, Billy Prouty and John Lambertz were victorious on Sunday night at Huset's Speedway.

Henderson was hungry to avenge misfortune that cost him a shot to capture the Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig season opener one week ago and it showed on Sunday when the Northern Outlaw Sprint Association invaded the oval.

Following a red flag - the first of three red flags and five total cautions during the 25-lap feature - on the start of the main event, eighth-starting Henderson hustled to second on the opening lap before he powered around Carson McCarl for the top spot in turns one and two on Lap 2.

Cautions played into Henderson's favor during the first NOSA race at Huset's Speedway since May 2011 as he was given a clean track while facing heavy traffic on Lap 7, Lap 12 and Lap 17. The final caution - on Lap 18 - set up an eight-lap race to the finish and traffic only slowed Henderson a bit in the final circuit as he earned his first triumph of the season by 0.942 of a second.

"I'm so out of breath from celebrating it if you can believe that," he noted during the Victory Lane interview that followed a couple of shouts and arm pumps. "Last week was a bit of a mishap. Things happen in racing. We redeemed ourselves tonight."

McCarl finished second with Cody Ledger placing third. Jack Dover garnered the Hard Charger Award after maneuvering from 23rd to fourth and Jody Rosenboom rounded out the top five.

Skylar Prochaska and Jack Croaker set quick time during their qualifying groups before McCarl, Wade Nygaard, Austin Pierce and Ledger picked up heat race victories. Brant O'Banion was the B Main winner.

Prouty won the Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks A Main in a photo finish for his first-ever triumph at Huset's Speedway. Prouty held a comfortable lead for most of the 15-lap race until traffic in the waning laps allowed Colby Klaassen to make a bid for the victory.

Klaassen shaved approximately three quarters of a second off Prouty's advantage to pull within a half second coming to the white flag. The difference tightened through turns one and two with Prouty diving low entering turn three. Klaassen committed to the high lane as a driver being lapped was in the middle. Klaassen briefly put the nose of his race car in front as the drivers entered turn four, but Prouty's momentum on the bottom lane was enough to win by 0.021 of a second.

"Great, great race," Prouty beamed in Victory Lane. "I love this place. We've had good runs here, but never sealed the deal. Now we've done it."

Tim Dann was third with Matt Steuerwald fourth and Cory Yeigh fifth.

Zach Olivier and JJ Zebell each won a heat race.

Lambertz survived a couple of early restarts and traffic in the final laps to lead the distance of the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series 20-lap feature.

"The track was pretty quick on the bottom and kinda played into my favor," he said. "I'm pretty tired. It's still early in the season to be in racing shape."

Jansen posted a second-place showing with Micah Slendy third, 12 th-starting Mike Moore fourth and Shane Fick fifth.

Brandon Bosma, Lambertz and Jansen were the heat race winners.

Huset's Speedway hosts Growmark FS Night featuring Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig, the Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks and the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series next Sunday.

Sodeman Scores Second Sprint Win of Season at Tri-City Raceway Park; Shingledecker, Whitling, and Thompson also Win
(Franklin, PA May 16, 2021): Jack Sodeman, Jr. scored his second feature win in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprints to expand upon his point lead in his quest for a second straight championship.
Also celebrating wins were Jeremiah Shingledecker in the Krill Recycling LLC 38 Modifieds, Bobby Whitling in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, and Andy Thompson in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks.
“It feels good to end up in victory lane,” said the tired but happy winner 410 Sprint winner. “We gave up a few races when we had front row starting spots. We got up really early today and replaced the rear end. It was just my dad and me,” he explained. Sodeman gave props to the track crew for getting the surface prepared. “The track was beautiful, you could run the top or you could run the bottom.”
In the Shawgo Real Estate LLC feature, Kyle Colwell and Darin Gallagher led the field to the starting line in turn four. Brandon Matus and Logan McCandless were in the second row, with Chase Matheny and Jack Sodeman, Jr. in the third. Matt Farnham graced row four along with the last Sunday Thunder victor, A.J. Flick. Jeremy Weaver and veteran Bob McMillin were in row five for the 25 lapper.
Gallagher rolled into the lead on the opening lap, followed by Sodeman, who rode the rim to advance. Colwell, Brandon Matus, McCandless, and Flick remained close.
For the first several laps, it was the teacher who was the student, as Sodeman chased his protege, Gallagher. But Sodeman pulled the trigger on the inside of turns three and four to assume command on lap seven. Meanwhile, Flick was on the charge, advancing from eighth to third in the opening ten laps.
Disaster struck the third generation driver on lap 14, when Flick flipped his car in the third corner. During the caution period, Gallagher surrendered his second place starting spot, so that opened up positions in the top five for the restart.
Sodeman powered away and completed the remaining laps without interruption. Farnham came up to second, with Brandon Matus, Brent Matus, and Colwell completing the top five. Positions six through ten went to McMillin, Matheny, Gallagher, Flick, and McCandless.
The Donovan and Bauer Auto Group heat races for the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprints went to Gallagher and Farnham. There was no B Main.
In the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds, Kyle Inman led the opening lap from his pole position, with Ryan Riffe challenging on the outside. But Jeremiah Shingledecker had the inside line mastered and he crossed the scoring loop ahead of Inman just as the caution flag came out for Riffe, who spun from contention.
That put Shingledecker on the front row for the restart, with Inman beside him. Jimmy Holden was up to third with Lonny Riggs, and Kevin Hoffman, and Kyle Fink next.
There were two more cautions over the remainder of the race. But Inman was no match for Shingledecker on either restart. Holden fought off Hoffman for third and then he closed in on Inman as the laps wound down.
Shingledecker had nearly a six second advantage over Inman at the checkers. Holden was a close third, with Hoffman and Riggs in tow. Fink was sixth, with D.J. Schrader, Sid Unverzagt, Jr., Curt Bish, and Nathan McDowell completing the top ten.
Fink and Shingledecker took the qualifiers presented by Donovan and Bauer Auto Group. There was no B Main for the Krill Recycling 358 Modifieds this night.
In the Hovis Auto and Truck Supply Pro Stocks, It was a sibling rivalry with Curtis J. Bish and his brother, Curt, duking it out for the lead. Lurking in their shadows was the Seneca Slider, Bobby Whitling. Whitling snuck by Curt Bish on the inside midway through the race and then he drove up beside Curtis J. Bish within a lap or two. Whitling and Curtis J. Bish raced side by side for several laps.
Whitling used the inside line to take command with just a couple of laps remaining. Curtis J. Bish stayed close, but he could not get the momentum going on the top side to chase down Whitling.
After Whitling and the Bish brothers came Hunter Exley and Randy Wyant. Josh Seippel, Leigh Wheeler, William Hurelbrink, Mike Bordt, and Darr Diegelman completed the top ten.
The Donovan and Bauer Auto Group heat races for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks went to Randy Wyant and Curtis J. Bish. There was no B Main.
Andy Thompson was the final leader of the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stock feature. He was chased across the line by Justin Bailey, Todd Hanlon, Dalton Speer, and Chad Greeley. Evan Sobieski, Pat Hanlon, Raymond Bailey, Michael Barr, and James Tasker completed the top ten.
Dalton Speer and Justin Bailey won the Donovan and Bauer Auto Group heat races for the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. There was no B Main.

CHUCK HEBING OUT DUELS DAVIE FRANEK IN AN INSTANT CLASSIC AT WOODHULL

(Woodhull, NY) In what was an absolute thriller of an A Main, two of the best in the business, Davie Franek and Chuck Hebing would battle on the high banks of Woodhull with Hebing taking the checkers with a pass for the lead on lap 19.

Franek would draw the pole for the 25 lap A Main and would take command early with Paulie Colagiovanni and Jordan Thomas rounding out the top three. Jared Zimbardi and Chuck Hebing wasted no time getting into the top five.

Franek would begin to pull away as the rest of the field would fight for position behind him. During the middle stages of the race, Hebing would get by Zimbardi for fourth and start to charge for the third spot which was obtained by Thomas.

Hebing would attempt a slide job in three and four but could not get the car to stick so Thomas would remain in third. The following lap, Hebing would make the same slide job move with this time, making the car stick to take over the three spot.

Franek was not really contested and never really encountered lap traffic his entire time while leading. Hebing was able to get around Colagiovanni for second on lap 17 and start tracking down Franek. Two laps later on lap 19, Franek took an extremely high line which enabled Hebing to run the bottom and make the pass for the lead.

Once Hebing took the lead on lap 20, the caution flag ironically came out from a slowing Kelly Hebing on the front stretch. Hebing though was able to pull away for the remaining five laps to score the win over Franek, Colagiovanni, Jared Zimbardi and Jordan Thomas. This was Hebing’s seventh career win at Woodhull and his 52nd overall in PST Competition.

Heat race wins went to Zimbardi, Corey Sparks and Chuck Hebing. The Bonnell’s Rod Shop Dash for Cash winner was Dylan Sweirnik.

The Patriots will now set its sights on their Massive Memorial Day weekend in the state of Ohio. Friday, May 28 the tour will visit Limaland Motorsports Park. Then Saturday, they visit Wayne County Speedway with the weekend concluding at Waynesfield. Friday and Saturday will each pay $2,500 to win with the final night paying an unbelievable amount of $12,000. A full rules and procedure package will be announced this week.

By Jim Balentine Mercer, Pa.

Michaels Mercer raceway completed their third night of their 70th anniversary season on the Don Klug memorial night with new faces in victory Lane with first time winners JR McGinley (big block modified) Derek Houck (Racesaver 305 sprints) Gage Priester (FASTRAK modifieds) then repeat winner Andy Thompson (mini stocks)along with Les Myers and Tim Natalino (PA vintage modified) who received Don Klug memorial plaques and Evan Darby and Mason McAndrew (junior sprints)

In the big block modified feature JR McGinley, whose Family owned a big block modified driven by Dick Rankin in the past, is a nine time winner in the limited modified class and he finally broke through to pick up his first career big block win as he held off challenges from Brad Rapp to take the checkered flag in the Rick Ryder #18. “It’s feels great been a long time coming!! Rick wanted a driver and he put me in one and it’s been a good start to the season” Brad Rapp would finish 2nd, Eric Gabany 3rd, Chris Haines 4th and Max Smoker 5th.

Central Pennsylvania invader Derek Hauck towed 3 1/2 hours west to score his first ever Mercer checker in the receiver 305 sprints. Hauck started on the pole of the event and withstood multiple challenges from two time winner Logan McCandless to take the victory. Hauck said “it’s nice when you make this long trip and things pan out!!!the car was good and the track was fun! I figured if I held my line we’d be ok!! It’s a really nice surface and fun to race on.. its 2 different corners you’re driving in both ends” Logan McCandless suffered his first defeat of 2021 finishing 2nd, Steve Cousins 3rd, Andy Cavanaugh 4th and Tom Jasen 5th.

In the FASTRAK modified feature 2019 track champion Brian Schaffer was on his way to pick up his first win of the season with a nine second lead however coming out of turn four with two laps to go the car suddenly lost power and Schaffer went to the infield allowing Gage Priester to assume the lead and go on for a surprise first career win at the track he grew up at. “I saw him pull off and I said no way!! and I started shaking my head and celebrating. When he took off at the start I was like “on no” I’m not catching him. My dad ran here, my whole family is from Mercer, it’s a dream come true!!! Billy Adams would get 2nd, Michael Kristyak 3rd, Brian Schaffer 4th and Don Cornelius 5th.

The mini stocks again suffered much attrition and at the end of the 15 laps feature event Andy Thompson came out the winner after a red flag and multiple yellows to pick up his second career Mercer mini stock win this time in his uncle Carl Ely‘s number zero. Jordan Reges would lead the field from the pole but would go yellow for a crash in turn 1 involving Cody Bice in the #10 and Cameron Hutchins in the #77H. On the restart Adam Aley in the #999 took the lead but it went yellow again for a skirmish in turn 4 collecting Mike Porterfield,#23 Dj McCrae #36, and Joe Campbell #40c. When the green came back out Aley was overtaken by Tim Callahan then a hard hit by Zack Schwartz in the #325z head on into the turn 4 wall brought out the red while Aley stopped on the backchute and needed medical assistance. Both drivers were ok. Callahan led out of turn 4 but Andy Thompson took over the lead with Campbell back up front batting Callahan for 2nd. Campbell and Aley got by Callahan at the halfway mark. Thompson got into lapped traffic allowing Campbell to move closer but was to no avail as Thompson took the win.“I was scared.. I hit that guy pretty hard and it’s not my car!! I blew my car up opening night and then I sold it the next week and here I am in victory lane in my uncles car.”
Campbell would rebound from the back of the pack to finish 2nd, Will Aley 3rd, Mike Porterfield 4th and Andy Proper 5th.
Mercer will be dark until Saturday May 29 for a non sanctioned $4000 to win 410 sprint show along with the non wing crate sprints for $1000 to win, the Racesaver 305 sprints and the mini stocks.

PIRTEK UMSS Renegades Perform for a Huge Crowd at Cedar Lake Speedway

May 15, 2021, New Richmond, WI by: Terry Lenhertz

What do you do when you have an opportunity to show off in front of over 8,000 fans? If you’re the racers of the Pirtek Renegades, you turn in one of the most exciting races in recent memory! With some fans parking hundreds of yards away to get into the jam-packed Cedar Lake Speedway for their annual School Bus extravaganza, the Upper Midwest Sprintcar Series thrilled the full house with ultra-competitive racing, charges through the field, and late race dramatics.

Scott Brandt kicked off the action by winning his heat from the pole. Nick DaRonco claimed the second qualifier, while last week’s winner, Harry Hanson amassed the most passing points after starting last and finishing second to DaRonco. The final heat race went to the #69s of Jon Lewerer.

After the top six passing points redrew for feature starting position, it was “The Dragon” Brain VanMeveren sitting in the catbird’s seat leading the 20-car field to green alongside DaRonco. Coming out of the first set of turns, it was the #8 from Britt, MN leading the way as DaRonco bested VanMeveren out of turn two while Brandt and Lewerer were locking horns in the battle for third. Lap after lap, VanMeveren hounded DaRonco, and lap after lap, DaRonco answered the bell.

The race’s first caution flew with ten laps in the books with the running order still DaRonco, VanMeveren, Lewerer and Brandt, but quietly, Cam Schafer had worked from his fourth row starting spot up into the top five. Back under green, things only got more intense, with Lewerer interjecting his hot rod into the battle for the lead while VanMeveren cranked up the pressure with a few slide job passes for the lead, and DaRonco continuing to claw back a half-lap later to reassert himself as the leader. With laps dwindling away, Schafer got on his giddy-up and threaded the Lewerer/Brandt needle to rocket himself into third. Schafer kept cracking the whip and was duelling The Dragon when the #22 of VanMeveren pulled up lame with a flat right rear shoe with just five laps remaining. On the restart, Schafer sized up his prey, and executed a high/low move to dart under DaRonco exiting turn two. As the lead duo moved up to the cushion, there was enough slicing and dicing in the field to open up a culinary school. Mike Mueller had climbed from ninth to fifth to get into the middle of the beehive that included Brandt, Bryan Roach, Lewerer and Hanson. The final caution flew with Lewerer’s sprinter suffering drive train issues and chugging to a halt in turn four with just three laps remaining. On the restart, Schafer throttled through the last three circuits to his fifth Pirtek Renegade win of the season, while Mueller continued his climb, sneaking past DaRonco and Brandt to finish second. Brandt just edged out DaRonco at the line to round out the top three while Roach crossed the stripe fifth.

In other Renegade action, Dusty Lawson of Minot, ND nabbed his first win of the season as the Western Renegades battled at the Devils Lake Speedway. The Pirtek Renegades are back in action next week when they return to the Cedar Lake Speedway. The Western Renegades travel to Underwood, ND to do battle at the McClean County Speedway, and the Northern Renegades kick off their season on Thursday with a showdown at their home track in Grand Rapids, MN followed by a trip to the ABC Raceway in Ashland, WI, on Saturday.

 

 

Ryan Robinson, Tyler Lightfoot, Nick Baldwin and Mike Miller claim Placerville wins on Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – May 15, 2021…Foresthill’s Ryan Robinson remained calm, cool and collected through several slowdowns in the Thompson’s Winged Sprint Car feature, before pulling away at the end to tally his first career Placerville Speedway triumph on Saturday.

Robinson, the son of three-time track champion and 23-time Placerville winner David Robinson Jr., took the lead early and looked impressive out front en route to the big win. Sharing victory lane on Mountain Democrat Kids Bike Night were Tyler Lightfoot with the Ltd. Late Models, Nick Baldwin with the Pure Stocks and Mike Miller in the Mini Truck division. Thanks to the graciousness of several individuals a total of 25 bikes were given away to youngsters in attendance.

At the waving of the green flag in the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 A-main it was past Marysville champion Michael Ing who blasted into the lead. The Chico driver looked fast all night and held command until Ryan Robinson slipped to his inside on lap six for the lead. Following a restart on lap eight Ing took a shot at reclaiming the point but got sideways and slipped up over the cushion to bring out a yellow flag.

An excessive number of cautions and a couple reds plagued the contest, but Robinson never faltered out front and rocketed away on the final restart to pick up the Ron Stahl checkered flag by nearly four seconds over his nearest competitor. Despite Robinson having his way with things out front the clash for second on back over the closing laps remained a good one.

Roseville’s Colby Copeland fought his way forward to cross the stripe in second, followed by 15-year-old Joel Myers Jr. of Sebastopol, Placerville’s Shane Hopkins and another 15-year-old youngster Dylan Bloomfield. For the Oakley racer it marked his first Placerville top-five in just his third Winged 360 start at the track.

Rounding out the top-10 were Justyn Cox, Justin Bradway, Stephen Ingraham, John Clark and Bubba Decaires. Bradway and Ingraham were two of the biggest movers and shakers during the feature. Bradway had a solid run carving his way from 18th to seventh, while Ingraham was the Hard Charger with his run from 20th to eighth.

Winged 360 finish: 1. 14W-Ryan Robinson[3]; 2. 5V-Colby Copeland[6]; 3. 46JR-Joel Myers Jr[4]; 4. 21-Shane Hopkins[2]; 5. 33-Dylan Bloomfield[9]; 6. 7C-Justyn Cox[7]; 7. 80N-Justin Bradway[18]; 8. 93-Stephen Ingraham[20]; 9. 12J-John Clark[11]; 10. 94-Greg Decaires V[15]; 11. 34-Landon Brooks[8]; 12. 85-CJ Humphreys[14]; 13. 24-Justin Henry[13]; 14. 87-Ashlyn Rodriguez[19]; 15. 98-Chris Masters[16]; 16. 7-Clayton Snow[17]; 17. 83SA-Isaiah Vasquez[10]; 18. X1-Andy Forsberg[5]; 19. 21X-Michael Ing[1]; 20. 16X-Andy Gregg[12]

Over the last several years some of the biggest supporters of Placerville Speedway has been the Lightfoot Automotive team, who bring out multiple cars at each event. On Saturday night it was Placerville’s own Tyler Lightfoot who shined the brightest with the Ltd. Late Models and picked up an entertaining 20-lap victory. A fast and furious feature occurred with Lightfoot holding command every step of the way, but over the closing circuits would be hounded by Yuba City’s Rod Oliver.

With Lightfoot out front Oliver closed in lap after lap and had a shot on the final tour of the speedway. Lightfoot hung tough though and earned his third career Ltd. Late Model triumph at the track over Oliver, Woodland’s Kiely Ricardo, Auburn’s Ray Trimble and Orangevale’s Tom Tilford.

Ltd. Late Model finish: 1. 23J-Tyler Lightfoot[1]; 2. 57-Rod Oliver[4]; 3. 98-Kiely Ricardo[3]; 4. 37-Ray Trimble[8]; 5. 23T-Tom Tilford[5]; 6. 23-Dan Jinkerson[7]; 7. 22G-Paul Gugliomoni[2]; 8. 95-Max Mcafee[10]; 9. 15-Dan Brown Jr[6]

Oakley’s Nick Baldwin has started off 2021 like a blazing inferno in the Pure Stock division and that continued last night, as he scooped up win number three on the season. Baldwin started from the pole and cruised to his 11th career Placerville Speedway victory. Diamond Springs wheel-man Dan Jinkerson came home in second followed by brother Kevin Jinkerson, Rio Linda’s Ryan Peter and Placerville youngster Jonny Walsh. The Pure Stocks as always put on a solid contest with pristine track conditions on Saturday.

Pure Stock finish: 1. 17-Nick Baldwin[1]; 2. 23-Dan Jinkerson[5]; 3. 30-Kevin Jinkerson[7]; 4. 83-Ryan Peter[6]; 5. 4-Jonny Walsh[3]; 6. 23S-Stephanie Hanson[4]; 7. 93-Mel Byers[10]; 8. X86-David Silvia[9]; 9. 22K-Jason Palmer[8]; 10. 74-Russell Murphy[2]; 11. 15A-Ryan Murphy[11]

The 20-lap Mini Truck main event was a keenly contested battle that saw Rancho Cordova’s Mike Miller earn the victory over Thomas Jensen, Aaron Rupley, Kevin Tremblay and Paizlee Miller. The feature was slightly short on trucks but not short of entertaining racing, which has become customary for the division.

Mini Truck finish: 1. 16-Mike Miller[1]; 2. 08JR-Thomas Jensen[4]; 3. 77-Aaron Rupley[2]; 4. 72-Kevin Tremblay[8]; 5. 61-Paizlee Miller[6]; 6. 04-Wyatt Lakin[7]; 7. 70-Austin Struthers[5]

The Placerville Speedway returns to action this coming Sunday May 23rd with a four-division program on tap. The rare Sunday night program will showcase the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Cars, Ltd. Late Models, Pure Stocks and the Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association.

 

DECAIRE WINS ANDERSON MUST SEE FINALE IN DOMINTING FASHION

May 15, 2021 – Williamston, South Carolina Troy DeCaire picked up his first Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro victory in several seasons in dominating fashion Saturday night. DeCaire picked up a win in the two-day finale at Anderson Motor Speedway near Anderson, South Carolina.

Saturday’s finale fared far better than the opener Friday night. Friday’s event involved several multi-car incidents including a lap one pile-up that sent two cars flipping. In addition, two separate battles for the lead resulted in damaged cars and egos. It was chaotic to say the least. Saturday’s finale didn’t resemble the previous night’s carnage filled program in the least.

DeCaire started in the sixth position in the 30-lap feature that saw only 11 cars take the green due to availability of cars from the previous night’s event. In typical DeCaire fashion, he jumped to the outside on the green flag and made it three-wide going into turn one. By the time DeCaire exited turn two he was already in second position behind race leader and Friday night winner Joe Liguori. Four laps later DeCaire took command of the event and never looked back in dominating fashion.
DeCaire finished 6.598 seconds ahead of Liguori and built nearly a half lap advantage over third place finisher Jimmy McCune. Rounding out the top five were Anthony McCune and Jacob Dolinar.

Nolan Allison was the night’s fast qualifier with a lap of 13.571 seconds.

“We haven’t run a lot of 410 races in a while” DeCaire explained in victory lane.”I had a couple of them taken from us lately I feel like. Finally, it feels good to close the deal here”.

DeCaire’s early charge to the front may have been the difference. “This place is really hard to pass on. I feel like passing is at a premium here, especially when you can air it out. It sticks really good in the first turn at a lot of places. I really worked on that all day. I didn’t necessarily know I was gonna start on the outside. On the start I got over the top of the right front of the #48 and he gave me the lane. It got a little close with the #7. But to eliminate four cars in the first corner, they say you can’t win it on the first lap, but you can save a little tire” concluded DeCaire.

The series will be back in action May 28-29 at Kalamazoo Speedway for the inaugural American Speed U.S. Nationals and a $5,000 payday.

FINISH:

1. Troy DeCaire (36)
2. Joe Liguori (13)
3. Jimmy McCune (88)
4. Anthony McCune (8)
5. Jacob Dolinar (48)
6. Nolan Allison (16)

VON DOHREN, BAUMAN AND DANNER SCORE WINS AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY SATURDAY NIGHT

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. May 16, 2021 . . . Out of the last five point shows in the T.P. Trailers 358 NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series 30-lap Modified features Craig Von Dohren finished second in four of them with three being consecutive. Saturday night the defending Modified point champion advanced a position and scored his first win of the season to up his career total to 110 by holding off the challenges of Brett Kressley and Jeff Strunk.

For the second week in a row the T.P. Truck Equipment 25-lap Sportsman feature added a new name to the win list. Logan Bauman, who ran Slingshots the previous year before advancing to Sportsman this season, took advantage when leader B.J. Joly went wide coming out of turn four with a developing left rear flat tire and moved into first on the 21st lap. The rookie continued his pace to score his first career win at the track.

Briggs Danner, who runs several different divisions at numerous tracks throughout the area, was able to defeat runner-up Steve Drevicki in the 25-lap Rapid Tire East Coast USAC sprint feature.

Two weeks in a row Jesse Leiby was the early Modified feature leader from the pole position.

A blocked track in the first turn brought out the yellow/red condition on the fifth lap. Brett Gilmore, who was chasing Leiby since the initial start took to the outside trek on the restart and succeeded in becoming the new pacesetter.

Behind Gilmore a three-way battle for second developed between Leiby, Nate Brinker and Doug Manmiller.

By the 11th lap Manmiller put pressure on Gilmore for the top spot with side-by-side action and two laps later he was showing the way.

Ryan Lilick stopped in the first turn bringing out the yellow on the 13th lap. On the restart Manmiller maintained the lead, however Gilmore drifted high with cars scrambling. When things cleared Von Dohren and Brett Kressley had taken advantage of the situation and were now second and third respectively. Waiting in the wings anticipating advancement were Leiby and Strunk, who started 24th after having to run the consolation to get into the event.

Brad Arnold and Danny Bouc tangled in the first turn on the 23rd lap. Carroll Hine III tried to squeeze by, but got caught up in the mishap. When action resumed, Von Dohren outmaneuvered Manmiller to get by him for first and Kressley and Kressley were right behind for second and third as Manmiller dropped to fourth and Leiby completed the top five.

Von Dohren kept the competition behind him and went on to chalk up the victory trailed by Kressley, Strunk, Manmiller and Nate Brinker for his best finish since moving into the modified ranks this season. Sixth through tenth were Kevin Hirthler, Duane Howard, last week’s feature winner; Leiby, Jared Umbenhauer and Gilmore.

Dylan Swinehart, Kressley and Brinker were the heat winners. The consi was won by Kevin Graver.

Sportsman action saw polesitter Joly coming off a heat win earlier, take the lead followed by Tom Miller, rookies Mike Stofflet, Bauman and Mike Schneck in tow.

At the completion of eight laps Joly had a slight edge built up which he increased the distance each lap while second through fifth remained the same as they were trying to reel him in.

Dakota Kohler, who took a provisional start after failing to qualify in the consi in his badly damaged car from an earlier heat incident and then ran Jesse Leiby’s backup car, and Joey Vaccaro tangled along the homestretch for the 16th lap caution regrouping the pack. Joly held on to the lead, but by this time Bauman was second.

One lap later Nathan Mohr stopped along the backstretch and after the yellow was thrown pulled into the infield. When racing went green again Joly went too high coming off of turn four as the left rear tire started going down and Bauman was now ahead. Joly was determined to overcome the obstacle and try to regain control.

Bauman never surrendered the lead and went on to claim the triumph. Scoring his best career finish ever for second was Joly followed by Stofflet, who also had his best run; Chris Esposito and Cody Manmiller, another rookie that garnered his best run. Rounding out the top ten were Schneck followed by Miller. Decker Swinehart, Kenny Gilmore and Dylan Hoch.

Heats were won by Miller, Joly and Bauman. Vaccaro was the consolation winner.

Damon Paul led the first lap of the spring feature before Danner took over.

Battling for positions behind him were Paul, Kenny Miller III, Bruce Buckwalter and Drevicki as positions were constantly being swapped.

The red was thrown on the 13th lap when Eric Jennings flipped in the third turn with Ed Aikin also involved. Both drivers were uninjured, but out of competition. It was still Danner first on the restart. Mechanical issues forced second place runner Miller III to slow for the caution on lap 15 and now Drevicki was second.

In the closing stages Danner, Drevicki and Alex Bright were in a three-way duel for the lead and that’s the order they finished with Buckwalter fourth and Tommy Kunsman Jr. fourth and fifth. Nash Ely, Troy Betts, Mike Meyers, Billy Ney and Jason Cherry completed sixth through tenth.

Buckwalter, Drevicki and Kunsman Jr. won the heats. Craig Pelligrini Jr. won the semi-feature.

Next up on the schedule at Grandview is another tripleheader show of racing action featuring the T.P.Trailers Modifieds, T.P.Truck Equipment Sportsman and the Outlaw Vintage Racers. It all gets the green at 7:30 p.m. May 22nd. Adult admission is $14 while youngsters 11 and under are admitted free.

MARTIN MASTERS WCS' SPRINTS FOR THIRD WIN; GENTRY COLLECTS 1st CHECKERED FLAG; MOORE & ALEXANDER RETURN TO VICTORY LANE; 3 IN A ROW FOR JAMES

Orrville, Ohio

Saturday, May 15, 2021

By Mike Swanger

​All five class' of cars were back in action chasing more O'Reilly Auto Parts 'Race to the Championship' points at Wayne County Speedway Saturday night. Broc Martin and Danny Mumaw would bring the Pine Tree Towing & Recovery Sprints to the green flag and Mumaw would grab the early lead as Martin and Chris Myers, the two heat winners, would fall in behind. A lap nine caution for Wyatt Zimmerman bunched the field together and when the race went back to green, Martin made the move on Mumaw going into turn one and swiped the lead away from Mumaw. The Orrville driver and his Orrville Trucking, Chaser's Drive Thru and Guerne Heights Drive Inn #83m would quickly pull away as Myers took second from Mumaw on the next circuit. A three car battle for fourth was going on between Dean Jacobs, Ricky Peterson and Skylar Gee. Jacobs would take third at the halfway mark as Martin held a 12 car advantage over Myers. Mumaw, Peterson and Gee were now in the race for fourth and with five laps to go, both Peterson and Gee powered past Mumaw in turn two. As the laps dwindled down, Myers was trying evrey line to try and track down Martin but could not get close to make a challenge. Jacobs closed in on Myers but he would settle for third with Peterson outdueling Gee for fourth in the final two laps.

Making his first appearance at WCS in the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Model feature was David Airgood and he would take his outside front row starting spot and set the pace for the opening two laps using the extreme high groove at both ends of the 3/8 mile oval but he would miscalculate his mark in turn one on lap three and belt the guardrail hard and end his night early. J R Gentry would inherit the lead and never look back to pocket his first win of the season at 'Orrville's Historic Oval'. Driving the El Campesino Restaurant, Holmes Pest Control and Skurt's Custom Apparel #14 and coming off a win on Friday night, the Wooster driver was never challenged and won by three seconds. over Doug Drown, who like Myers in the Sprint feature, tried different lines to close the gap but could never catch up to Gentry. In the early part of the feature, Ryan Markham and points leader Mitch Caskey had a tight race for third but Caskey would pull off on lap nine and Markham would secure third as a pair of #59's would wheel and deal for fourth with Shane McLoughlin holding off Larry Bellman for fourth. Heat winners were Markham and Airgood.

Mansfield's Kyle Moore would start on the outside front row of the CORBON Ammunition Modified main and would lead all the way for his second win at WCS and of the weekend. Driving the Slicker Graphic's, Kepling Flooring and Arnold Motorsports #1* Moore would be chased bt Scott Peltz through out the race as Peltz could use the low line in the corners to get beside Moore, who would out power Peltz down the straight aways. In the final five laps, Moore pulled away with Peltz taking second. Bill Griffith and Mark Gardiner ran race long in third and fourth as Casey Butler rounded out the top five. Peltz and Moore topped the heats.

​Jordan James of Loudonville used the outside front row also to grab the lead and went flag to flag for his third straight JOYRIDE Transport Mini Stock win. Driving the Harris Automotive, E A Construction and Lochevale Farms #83, James was hounded by Brad Hensel early on but mechanical issues on the last lap stopped his chances at the win. That would move Johnny Bruce into second while Kye Petiy out dueled Ryan Carder for third in the final two laps. Mitch Reichard was in that mix also and finished fifth. Posting the heat wins were James and Dustin Bedlion.

​ Next Saturday night, the United Late Model Series (ULMS) will invade Wayne County Speedway for a $3,000 to win feature as the Modifieds, Super Stocks and the Mini Stocks will also be in action as the Sprint cars will have the night off. Gates will open at 3 pm, hot laps at 6 pm and first race at 7 pm..

Miller, Buhler, Weber claim PDTR
A-main triumphs on record-setting night

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) May 15, 2021 – With cool temperatures and persistent rain showers lingering throughout the evening, the third Plymouth Dirt Track Racing program of the 2021 season produced lightning fast track conditions and saw three veteran drivers post A-main victories in their respective divisions with a fourth falling victim to rain and two new track records set Saturday, May 15 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

In A-main action, 2018 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Justin Miller of Plymouth outdueled two-time PDTR 360 Sprint champ Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh through heavy lapped traffic to claim the A-main victory in the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty 360 Sprint Car main event, while establishing a new track record pace in the process.

Former PDTR Late Model champion Tim Buhler of Greenbush scored a wire-to-wire win in the 25-lap Sheboygan’s Country B93.7 Late Model main event, while Steven Weber of Plymouth led from start to finish in the 25-lap Oostburg Automotive Grand National A main. The Cellcom B Mod A main fell victim to wet track conditions following steady rain showers.

After Justin Miller led the 22-car 360 Sprint Car A-main field to the green flag from the pole position, outside front row starter Brandon McMullen powered around Miller to take the lead in turn two of the opening circuit along the high groove.

McMullen paced the field with Miller second, fourth starter Kevin Karnitz of West Bend in third and two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee, who started third, in fourth in the early stages of the race. The leaders hit lapped traffic on lap 7, which allowed Miller to cut the gap.

On lap 17, Miller ducked low to seize the top spot from McMullen in dense lapped traffic. Three laps later, Miller made slight contact with a lapped car in turn four, which allowed McMullen to regain the lead briefly along the inside groove.

However, Miller battled back to regain the top spot with a low move in turn three on lap 22 and fended off McMullen over the final three laps to secure his fourth career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory and sixth overall Midwest Sprint Car Association A-main triumph in the caution-free race.

Miller completed the non-stop A-main race in five minutes and 31 seconds to set a new 25-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main track record. The previous record was set in 2016 by Kurt Davis.

McMullen finished second, Karnitz placed third, Davis was fourth and Travis Arenz of Sheboygan charged from the 16th starting spot to place fifth.

Polesitter Tim Buhler led the opening lap of the Late Model A main with three-time defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland, who started second, in tow.

On lap 3, fifth starter Justin Ritchie of New London and third starter Jim Schmidt of Cleveland joined Justin Schmidt in a three-wide duel for second. One lap later, Justin Schmidt secured the second spot before the first of two caution flags flew on lap 5 for Chad Ludwigson of Sheboygan Falls and Joe Bongiorno of Milwaukee, who spun in turn three.

Another caution appeared on lap 6 when Turk Letizia of Milwaukee spun in turn two and was collected by Justin Ritchie.

After the restart, Buhler retained control of the top spot with Justin Schmidt trailing. On lap 10, Justin Schmidt pulled his smoking car off the track and into the infield while running second. By lap 12, Buhler had built up a full straightaway cushion over fourth starter Charlie Schmidt of Cedar Grove.

Buhler cruised over the final 13 laps to collect his 13th career PDTR Late Model A-main victory. Jim Schmidt finished second, Charlie Schmidt came home third, Letizia recovered from his lap 6 spin to place fourth and Ritchie charged back through the field after going to the pits following contact with Letizia on lap 6 to finish fifth.

Steven Weber seized the lead on the drop of the green field of the Grand National A main from the pole. On lap 2, outside front row starter Brad Weiss of West Bend pulled even with the low-riding Weber along the high groove and the two drivers dueled side by side over the next two circuits before Weber gained control of the top spot.

On lap 5, 2019 PDTR Grand National champion Tyler Kulow of Plymouth, who started third, slipped past Weiss to take second. On lap 8, Kulow closed in on Weber and continued to hound the leader throughout the remainder of the race.

Kulow stayed within striking distance in the closing laps. However, he was unable to wrestle the top spot away from the smooth and steady Weber, who went on to earn his third career PDTR Grand National A-main victory in the non-stop race.

Kulow finished second, fifth starter Chad Espen of West Bend placed third, two-time PDTR Grand National champ Don Sorce Jr. of West Allis, who started fourth, finished fourth and Dustin Weiss of Iron Ridge placed fifth after starting seventh.

The scheduled 25-lap Cellcom B Mod A main was cancelled due to rain with equal points granted to all drivers.

2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove won the first 12-lap 360 Sprint Car B main and 2008 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Lance Fassbender of Burnett was victorious in the second 12-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car B main.

Nick Schultz of Beaver Dam set a new 10-lap PDTR B Mod heat race track record in the first B Mod heat race of the night with a time of two minutes and 32 seconds, which topped the previous track record by five seconds.

After the checkered flag flew in the 360 Sprint Car A main, Paul Pokorski of West Bend, in his first night behind the wheel of Spyder Akright’s 53A car, made hard contact with the turn one wall in an attempt to avoid contact with a rapidly slowly car directly ahead of him. Pokorski emerged from the badly damaged car uninjured.

The third PDTR racing program of the 2021 season, which was sponsored by the city of Sheboygan Falls Fire Department and honored police, fire and EMS personnel with free admission, drew a total of 87 cars, including 34 360 Sprint Cars, 14 Late Models, 19 Grand Nationals and 20 B Mods.

PDTR action is scheduled to resume on Saturday, May 22 with action in the 360 Sprint Car, Late Model, Grand National and B Mod divisions

Grandstand gates open at 3:30 p.m. with hot laps at 4:30 p.m. racing at 5 p.m.

HOBAUGH EARNS 2ND CAREER “410” SPRINT CAR WIN SATURDAY AT SHARON; BISH REPEATS IN STOCKS; KRUMMERT STOPS WOLBERT IN RUSH MODS; 1ST FOR THOMAS IN ECONO MODS

May 15, 2021


(Hartford, OH)…After the first cancellation of 2021 last week, Sharon Speedway returned to action on Saturday night for race three of the 92nd anniversary season. The first “Super Series” event of the year saw George Hobaugh-Hovis Auto & Truck Supply “410” Sprint Cars, Curt J. Bish-Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, Garrett Krummert-HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and Will Thomas III-Whelen Econo Mods pick up victories on Krill Recycling and Mark Thomas Ford Night. A big field of 102 race cars filled the pits for the four-division show.

Back on July 7, 2018, George Hobaugh finished runner-up to Dave Blaney in the All Star Circuit of Champions “Lou Blaney Memorial” at Sharon. Then at the very next Sprint Car event at Sharon on August 4, Hobaugh was victorious for the very first time in his “410” career. Since then, it’s been up and down for Hobaugh, who has bounced around running full-time with the All Stars, central Pennsylvania, and regional events failing to return to victory lane.

On Saturday night, Hobaugh took the lead on lap two from 2009 and 2010 track champion, Jack Sodeman, Jr., and never looked back dominating the 30-lap Hovis Auto & Truck Supply “410” Sprint Car feature. The $3,000 victory ended nearly a three-year winless drought for the 38-year-old Chicora, Pa. driver of the Krill Recycling/Laskowski Plumbing/Over the Top Truck Wash/Hobaugh`s Auto Parts-sponsored #40. Hobaugh’s margin of victory was 1.932 seconds over sixth starting A.J. Flick, who backed up his Friday night runner-up finish at Lernerville Speedway with another P2.

Sye Lynch raced from 10th to third. Darren Pifer’s fourth place was a career best “410” finish. Carl Bowser was fifth. Brandon Spithaler was the hard charger going 15th to sixth. Sodeman dropped to seventh. The father-son of Brent and Brandon Matus were eighth and ninth respectively. Leyton Wagner completed the top 10. Bob Felmlee set fast time overall against the 30-car field in qualifying with a lap of 14.714. Sodeman, Flick, and Kekich won the heat races, while Lernerville winner, Jason Shultz, went 10th to first in the last chance B main.

2009 track champion Curt J. Bish is now two-for-two in 2021 once again out-dueling Chris McGuire and holding off standout Chris Schneider for the 20-lap Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stock win. With 27 cars on hand, drivers raced for the highest purse structure with Bish once again earning $700 for his sixth career win.

The 37-year-old Oil City, Pa. driver of Bob Tarr’s Pioneer Electric/Double E Landscaping & Fencing/RK Virgile Scrap Metals/CMFS/HD Power Clean-sponsored #29 started back in ninth, but worked his way forward and rolled around McGuire on the lap 17 restart and took the win by a margin of 0.666 of a second over Schneider in his season debut.

Chase Lambert improved on his career best Sharon finish of fifth on opener night with a third after starting 11th. Hunter Exley was fourth. McGuire dropped to fifth after leading the first 16 laps. Jamie Scharba was the hard charger going 23rd to eighth. Heat wins went to Bobby Whitling, Randy Wyant, and Steve D’Apolito.

Defending Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Sportsman Modified Weekly Series Champion, Chas Wolbert, had started the 2021 season off red hot winning opening night events at Tyler County, Sharon, and most recently Raceway 7 on Friday night. Wolbert’s bid for four straight wins ended on Saturday night as Garrett Krummert laid down a beating in the 20-lap HTMA/Precise Racing Products feature winning by 9.061 seconds.
Krummert, the 33-year-old who now calls West Middlesex, Pa. home, started seventh and raced past Rob Kristyak in turn two on lap five. Once in front, Krummert went unchallenged in the MD Landscaping/Jerry Schaffer Racing/Turn 4 Toilets-sponsored #10s. It was Krummert’s seventh career RUSH Sportsman Modified win to go along with a Big-Block Modified victory at Sharon.

While Krummert extended his lead, the battle was on for second between Kristyak and Wolbert through lapped traffic. Wolbert, who started sixth, passed Kristyak for the spot on lap 11. The two continued to go at it for the rest of the duration. In fact, the two banged wheels on the final lap with both spinning in turns three and four, but both kept going as Wolbert crossed the line in second ahead of Kristyak. Pole-sitter Jacob Wolfe dropped to fourth at the finish in his 2021 debut. Justin Shea advanced from eighth to fifth. Completing the top 10 were Kole Holden, Ben Easler, Tony Tatgenhorst, Brandon Ritchey, and Kyle Martell. Heat winners over the 22-car field were Greg Porter, Shea, and Krummert.

On opening night it was 12-time RUSH Late Model winner, Dennis Lunger, Jr., winning his career first in the Econo Mods. On Saturday night in week two it was 15-time RUSH Late Model winner Will Thomas III capturing his career first in the division. Thomas, who is also running Super Late Models and RUSH Late Models in 2021, captured his first win of the year by taking the lead on lap six in the 20-lap Whelen feature.

Thomas, 45 of Sharpsville, Pa., drove his Hallman Originals/Colonial Metal Products/Colonial Slitting Industries/Motorstate Distributing/955 Automotive-sponsored #9 to the win by a comfortable margin of 2.179 seconds. Thomas’ overtook Nate Young on a restart on lap seven, which propelled him to his 20th overall win at Sharon as he also has four UMP Modified victories.

Young and Double battled hard for second with Double nailing down the spot. On opening night, Double went 18th to second and on Saturday night ninth to second. Ty Rhoades, who started 21st, got by Young late to finish third and earned the hard charger. Young slipped back to fourth after leading the first six laps. Kyle Layton was fifth. Heat winners over the 23-car field were Andy Buckley, Young, and Thomas.

Coming up next Saturday (May 22) will be the return of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Sprint Cars for the first time since 2007 and will be joined by the Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars in their first appearance of the season.

BLAKE BOWER RETURNS TO WMR VICTORY LANE WITH FIRST PETALUMA WIN

PETALUMA, CALIF. (May 16, 2021) – Brentwood’s Blake Bower won his second career Western Midget Racing feature on Saturday night, driving from third position to grab his first career Petaluma Speedway win.

Brian Brown collects $5,000 in Bull Haulers Brawl win at Jackson Motorplex

 By Mike Spieker

JACKSON, Minn. (May 14, 2021) – Early morning showers made for a fast and tacky racing surface all night on Friday at Jackson Motorplex as the Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA Sprints were made their first-ever appearance for the $5,000-to-win Bull Haulers Brawl, presented by Folkens Brothers Trucking.

A stout field of 30 Northern Outlaw Sprints were signed in for action. The 25-lap main event was led to the green flag by pole sitter Skylar Prochaska and Brian Brown. The drag race into turn one went to Brown as Prochaska filed into second with Carson McCarl in third.

Brown quickly found himself in lapped traffic. A small slip up in turn one gave Prochaska an opportunity to take the lead and he took full advantage. Prochaska moved into the point on lap six.

A restart on lap eight bunched the field back up and Brown regained the top spot as the green flag flew.

Once out front, Brown never looked back as he opened up a comfortable lead and took the win.

Prochaska finished second, followed by Matt Juhl, 14th-place starter Brooke Tatnell, and Justin Henderson.

“When I got into traffic that first time, I was just way too cautious,” said Brown in victory lane. “Skylar showed me how hard I needed to run. I have to thank Charlie Garrett. They want to choke us down on those restarts, but our motor takes off better every time. That’s what won me the race.

Jones drives the Trifecta Motorsports 7U back to POWRi West Victory Lane

Oklahoma City, OK (May 15, 2021) After inheriting the lead when Andrew Felker suffered mechanical issues mid-race, Kyle Jones set sail in route to his second career Lucas Oil POWRi West A-main win Saturday night at I-44 Riverside Speedway in Oklahoma City.

Jones, who started fifth quickly moved into second within the first five laps of competition. He and Felker maintained a one-two running order through multiple caution flag restarts and held off challenges from Tanner Berryhill and Cannon McIntosh. Lap six was a tough one with three caution flags flying, the last of which was McIntosh going up in flames after motor issues. Once racing action resumed, Jones pulled away from the field and brought the Trifecta Motorsports 7U back to Lucas Oil POWRi West Victory Lane.

Following Jones to the finish line was Tanner Berryhill, picking up the Realty Connect second-place bonus, with Emilio Hoover completing the podium. Micro driver Cameron Key followed in fourth with series veteran Michelle Decker fifth. Taylor Reimer recovered from getting upside down on lap one to finish sixth, with Branigan Roark, Schure Built Suspensions Hard Charger Mason Daughtery, Cole Scott, and Andrew Felker rounding out the top ten.

Heat race winners were Taylor Reimer and Andrew Felker, while Tanner Berryhill’s fourth to second-place run earned him the Rod End Supply High Passing Points award.

The Lucas Oil POWRi West Midget series will be back in action Memorial Day weekend for the Midget Roundup at Airport Raceway in Garden City, Kansas on May 29th and 30th.

Foos wins thriller at Fremont; Macedo dominates 410 make-up; Stroup gets redemption in 305s; Valenti again in trucks

Sunday, May 16, 2021

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – DJ Foos waited until the white flag lap to take the lead from race-long leader Trey Jacobs and then held off a last lap challenge from Byron Reed to earn his second 410 sprint win of the year in thrilling fashion at Fremont Speedway Saturday, May 15 on Great Lakes Truck Centers Night.

It was Foos’ second straight victory of the year in the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints and the 19th of his career at “The Track That Action Built.” And the win pads Foos’ lead in his quest for a second championship for the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group.

“Trey bobbled a couple of times on the cushion in one and two which is pretty easy to do tonight…there’s a pretty massive curb. I was kind of cheating it. My guys kept me pretty snug so I was rolling underneath the cushion and caught the moisture on the way out. I wondered if I was ever going to get to the lead on this deal. I messed up on the restart (with 11 to go) and gave him a pretty big lead. I didn’t have anything for him but he made a couple of mistakes and I was able to capitalize on it. It’s so easy to make complacent mistakes when you are leading. I can’t say enough for the Burmeister family for the opportunity. This is the second night out on this car and we had amazing speed last night and tonight we were able to capitalize on it,” said Foos beside his Crown Battery, CR Juices, All in Tent Rentals, Dave Story Equipment, Burmeister Trophy, Sonny’s Signs, Vantage Branding, The Jet Express, Berryman Racing Shocks, Kistler Engines, Kistler Racing Products backed machine.

In the make-up feature for Pub 400 Night from April 24, Lemoore, California’s Cole Macedo took the lead from Stuart Brubaker on a restart and never looked back, winning by nearly six seconds for his first career Fremont Speedway victory.

“Me and my team…we didn’t qualify very good tonight and these guys went through the car and found some things wrong and it’s a rocket ship now. It just shows how good these guys are…Mike and Steven bust their tails every week and it shows. So many people that help out on this team…Cody, Sam, Jason, the Finsel boys…so many people who make this thing possible. I have to thank Ray Brooks for taking a chance on us,” said Macedo beside his Fremont Auto Parts, Grant Decker Construction, Linder’s Speed Equipment, Gill Construction, CK Mechanical, ML Graphics, Diversified Builders backed #18.

In another fantastic race, Fremont’s Dustin Stroup held off a very late race challenge from defending Fremont Speedway track champion Paul Weaver to earn his second straight Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint win. It was redemption for Stroup who struggled the previous night at Attica Raceway Park and he and his dad and crew stayed up all night repairing his Automatic Fire Protection; MLP Lawn care & Snow Removal; Vantage Branding; Level Performance; Advance Auto Parts backed machine. With two laps to go, Stroup nearly gave the race away with a bobble on the cushion in turns one and two with Paul Weaver breathing down his neck and a trio of lapped cars racing hard in front of him.

“I was very embarrassed by my performance last night at Attica…I was ready to quit. We came out two weeks ago and won here and we had a terrible night last night and I was just so distraught. We spent a very long time in the shop last night and this morning putting this thing back together. I have to thank everyone who helps out…mom and dad, Adam and all my great sponsors and Level Performance for building one hell of an engine,” said Stroup.

“I knew I could not get past the lapped cars…they were running my line. There was one on the top and one on the bottom so I just held my line. I could hear someone…didn’t know who…and the last couple of laps I had to pick up the pace. We held on for the win,” added Stroup.

Fostoria, Ohio’s Shawn Valenti held off several challenges and drove to his second Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature win of the year. It is his 63rd career victory at Fremont Speedway placing him alone in second on the all-time win list just 13 behind Art Ball. It was the 80th total win for that truck at various tracks over the years.

“Time and time again I say I’m just thankful to be driving this thing. Babcocks put me in a heck of a piece and I want to thank Madison Motors for putting up some extra cash tonight for our division. It’s pretty remarkable to have 80 wins in one vehicle,” said Valenti beside his Best Performance Motorsports; A Plus Auto Center; Craig Miller Trucking; KS Sales & Service; Gressman Powersports; Dave Story Equipment, Speedways Bar and Grill backed truck.

After a caution to start the make-up 410 feature, Stuart Brubaker jumped into the early lead over Frankie Nervo, Macedo, Travis Philo, Foos and Chris Andrews. On lap five Nervo took a nasty spill but was uninjured. On the restart Byron Reed tipped over. On the restart Cale Thomas took a spill. When the green flew again Macedo drove into the lead over Brubaker, Philo, Andrews and Foos.

The race would go the rest of the way caution-free and Macedo dominated, leading by over five seconds at times. He would take the win over Brubaker, Philo, Foos and Brian Smith.

Following an opening lap mishap, Trey Jacobs grabbed the early lead In the night’s regular 410 feature. Just as things were heating up for second between Nate Dussel and Foos, the caution flew on lap five. Jacobs got a great restart and pulled away slightly as Dussel and Foos battled very hard for second. Following a caution on lap 12, Jacobs again drove away on the restart as Dussel and Foos continued their battle for second with Landon LaLonde, Chris Andrews, Craig Mintz and Greg Wilson challenging fourth.

Just as Dussel was closing on Jacobs on lap 19, the caution flew and it was for a Dussel spin. When the green reappeared the car on the move was Byron Reed as he drove into third. With eight laps to go Foos had chopped a lot of time off Jacobs’ lead and when they raced to the white flag, Foos and Jacobs were side by side with Foos gaining the advantage. It was Reed who was mounting the serious challenge and coming to the checkers Foos was able to hold off Reed with Jacobs, Andrews and Macedo rounding out the top five.

Mike Keegan drove into the lead at the drop of the green for the 305 Sprint feature with Seth Schneider challenging while Steve Rando, Stroup and Alvin Roepke in pursuit. Other than a spin on the opening lap, the event would go to the checkers without another stoppage. Stroup took second from Schneider on lap 10 and closed quickly on Keegan, eventually taking the lead on lap 13.

In the closing laps Stroup’s lead quickly disappeared as Weaver closed. Stroup was able to hold on for the win over Weaver, Keegan, Alvin Roepke and Valent.

Valenti battled with Jeff Babcock early in the 20-lap truck feature then had to hold off Steve Sabo for the win.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, May 22 for the 410 and 305 sprints and dirt trucks with the 305s running their make-up feature as well.

Smith Slides to Skagit Speedway Win

5/15/21

Alger, WA – Sundrenched Skagit Speedway saw four classes in action on Saturday night, and it was Cam Smith thrilling the crowd with a late race slidejob to take the win in the Budweiser 360 Sprints. Joining Smith as winners on the night were Nick Evans, Adam Holtrop and Mike Macpherson.

Greg Hamilton set the pace in the 360 division, but Smith and the company behind him in third and fourth were never too far off the pace, with both Colton Heath and Jason Solwold occasionally nipping at Cam’s heels. As Hamilton hit traffic toward the mid stages of the 25 lap A Main, he altered his line a bit, going low in turns 1 and 2 and allowing Smith to close right up to him from the top side of the speedway. On lap 20, Smith pulled the trigger on a slidejob in turns one and two, barreling underneath Hamilton to take the top spot and breaking Greg’s momentum in the process. It was academic from there, as Smith drove away to Sage Fruit Victory Lane, with Solwold jumping up to second in the final laps and Hamilton finishing third. Solwold was the fast qualifier, with heat wins going to Jeff Dunlap, Eric fisher and Colby Johnson.

In the NW Focus Midgets, Nick Evans picked the perfect spot to show a tire to Travis Jacobson. Jacobson had led from lap two through 23 with Evans tight on him the whole way before Evans showed a tire to Jacobson getting into turn one, then drove underneath him on the exit of turn two. Pulling ahead at the entrance to turn three, Evans would lead the final two laps for his first Skagit Speedway win of the season and fourth overall with the series. Jacobson and Alex Peck rounded out the podium. Evans, Peck and Jesse Munn earned heat race wins.

Adam Holtrop put on a master class in passing slower traffic in the Skagit Aggregates Modifieds main event. Time and again, second place runner Craig Moore would close on Adam, but Holtrop consistently carved through slower traffic, threading the needle multiple times in between cars he was lapping to add padding to his lead and eventually, taking the checkered flag first ahead of Moore and Rick Smith. Smith and Dan Buteschoen won the heat races.

Mike Macpherson picked the perfect night to win his first Outlaw Tuner main. With $200 put up by DEW Investing to the winner, Macpherson led all 18 laps of the main, including surviving a green-white-checkered restart to seal the deal ahead of Don Briggs Sr and Howard Vos. Heat wins went to Macpherson and Vos.

Bacon Wins Wild BOSS Sprint Feature; At Gas City I-69 Speedway Friday Night

GAS CITY, Ind., May 15 – The answer to the question “Who’s the Boss?” was Brady Bacon Friday night at Gas City I-69 Speedway, as the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) non-wing sprint cars staged a thriller at the quarter-mile dirt track.

After a violent start to the 25-lap main event with two separate flips by Ben Knight and defending track champion Max Adams, the top runners ran under a blanket numerous times in the beginning stages of the race, often three abreast.

That was more than a little exciting, but when they caught the tail of the field it became a sprint car feature for the ages. They weaved their way by other competitors, sometimes getting boxed in, sometimes having to take evasive action, sometimes clearing other drivers’ cars by the smallest of margins, and in a couple of cases making slight contact. Despite the pressure they had to keep a clear head, their tempers in check, and be patient while simultaneously going as fast as possible as they pursued the $2,000 winner’s check. In the end that went to Bacon, a native of Broken Arrow, Okla., who now lives in Richmond, Ind.

The other feature winners Friday night arguably had an easier time, as they “only” had to fight off the drivers behind them. Dillon Nusbaum of Warsaw, Ind., led all 20 laps of the modified feature; Ervin Turner of Marion, Ind., led all 15 laps of the street stock feature, and James Headley Jr. of Wabash, Ind., led all 15 laps of the hornet feature.

Bacon started ninth in the 24-car field for the sprint car feature in the Wedgewood Motorsports Triple XXX/J&D Chevy, which is sponsored by Glenn Farms, Fatheadz Eyewear and Drive WFX.

Knight, of Mooresville, Ind., flipped high in Turn 4 on the initial start. Adams, a native of Loomis, Calif., now living in Marion, Ind., flipped in almost the same place after contact with Shane Cottle of Kansas, Ill., on the second attempt to get the race underway. Both Knight and Adams got out of their cars under their own power, but Adams was transported to a local hospital afterwards for further evaluation.

Justin Grant, a native of Ione, Calif., now living in Avon, Ind., out-dragged everyone into the first turn on both of those starts driving Paul Hazen’s famous No. 57. He did the same for the third attempt that stuck. Cottle edged ahead on lap three for an instant but Grant fought back and was still leading when Bacon passed Cottle for second on lap eight and then set his sights on Grant.

Bacon dipped under Grant on the frontstretch on lap nine for the lead and led the rest of the way. Cottle passed Grant for second on lap 14, right before Max Guilford, who calls Auckland, New Zealand home, spun low in Turn 4 to bring out a yellow with 15 laps down. That gave Cottle a clear shot at Bacon for the restart with 10 laps remaining.

Bacon was up to the challenge, and with a clear track ahead of him he was able to accrue a 2.016-second advantage over Cottle at the line. Grant finished third. Last week’s winner, Thomas Meseraull of Waveland, Ind., placed fourth and Matt Westfall of Pleasant Hill, Calif., rounded out the top five.

Bacon set the fastest lap of the race with a time of 12.932 seconds on lap eight while he was taking second place. Tyler Kendall of Connersville, Ind., was the hard charger, as he started 22nd but finished 11th.

Nusbaum started second in the 20-lap modified feature, beat polesitter Andy Bishop of Gas City to lead lap one, and then led the remaining 19 laps too in a non-stop main event. Nusbaum had nearly a 2-second lead over Bishop at one point, but with two laps to go Bishop had cut that to just 0.395 of a second. At the checkered Bishop was 0.707 behind Nusbaum’s new Elite No. 17N with a Head Racing engine. Among its sponsors are Pro Strip Custom Powder Coating; Dairy Queen of Plymouth, Ind.; M.C. Wheeler and Sons; Quality Lawn Services; Westons Travel Agency and Sparkman Auto Auction.

Cole Sink of Fort Wayne, Ind., ran third every lap but lap two. He lost the spot to NASCAR veteran Kenny Schrader of Concord, N.C., on that lap, but got the position back on the following lap. Schrader finished fourth followed by last week’s winner, Bub Roberts of Warren, Ind.

Turner started third in the 17-car street stock feature but he passed both drivers who started in the front row, Larry Long of Tuscola, Ill., and James Williams of Wheatfield, Ind., to lead the whole way. There were five yellows to give the field ample opportunity to pass Turner, but he was up to the challenge each time with his No. 1, which is a Hobbs chassis powered by a Ron Flaugh Chevy engine. The car is sponsored by Erv’s Card Shack, Hobbs chassis and Barry Bunker Chevrolet. Chris Hunter of Kokomo, Ind., was the winning chief mechanic.

Bishop, who was doing double duty, and Lee Hobbs had a good battle for second. Hobbs got the position on lap seven and was 0.617 of a second behind Turner at the checkered. Tony Homan of St. Marys, Ohio came on strong in the late stages to finish third. Bishop held on for fourth and Williams finished fifth. Bishop set the fastest lap of the race on lap two with a time of 14.021 seconds.

Headley Jr. started on the pole of the 15-lap hornet feature and led the entire race. At first he was pressured by his father, James Headley of Marion, Ind., but the latter headed to the pits on lap nine, giving second to Jeremy Jones of Gas City.

Headley Jr. had a whopping 9.555-second lead over Jones at the checkered as well as his second feature victory in a row. Aaron Tatman of Lafayette, Ind., finished third and Brandon Lines of Marion, Ind., placed fourth. Kolton Sollars of Lafontaine, Ind., turned a 16th-place starting spot into a fifth-place finish.

Headley Jr.’s No. 00 is sponsored by Dudding’s Heating and Cooling, Shrouts Towing and his father.

In preliminary action Brayden Clark of Tipton, Ind., got upside down between Turns 1 and 2 at the start of the third sprint heat, but was unhurt. Luke Hall of Pleasant Hill, Ohio had a very violent flip and ended up outside Turn 2 with five laps complete in the first sprint B-main. Luckily he climbed out of his sprint car under his own power too.

Gas City is dark this coming Friday night, May 21, but the next day, Saturday, May 22, it hosts the Flo Racing All Star Circuit of Champions winged sprint cars plus the All Star TQ midgets in an event that has been on many people’s calendars since the day it was announced. The pit gate opens at 3 p.m. and the grandstands at 5 p.m. Hot laps are at 6 p.m. followed promptly by time trials. The racing starts at 7 p.m. An adult general admission for this show costs $30 and a pit pass $35.

On Memorial Day weekend Gas City is back to its Friday night format with its big Memorial Day Tribute on Friday, May 28 featuring the track’s core program of non-wing sprint cars, modifieds, street stocks and hornets. An adult general admission ticket for that show is $15, with kids 12 and under free. A pit pass costs $30. The pit gate will open at 3 p.m., the grandstands at 5 p.m., hot laps will be at 6:30 p.m. and the races start at 7:30 p.m.

The complete 2021 schedule and more information is on the track’s website at GasCityI69Speedway.com. Fans and competitors can also follow it on Twitter: @GasCitySpeedway; Instagram: @GasCitySpeedway and Facebook: GasCitySpeedwayOnTheGas.

Yet Another Unpredictable Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series Event Nets Thomas the ‘W’ at HOT!
Elm Mott TX (5/15/21) by DarinShort.com. Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series fans are frequently commenting how unpredictable the race outcomes are from event to event – and last night’s ‘Children Tumor Foundation Night’ at Heart O' Texas Speedway (HOT) was certainly no different, with 7th place starter Marcus Thomas, piloting the beautiful Ray Williams owned #22x, would end up in victory lane collecting $2,000 in the process.
Event recap:
On what would be a ‘Chamber of Commerce’ weather night, with temps in the upper 70’s and no precip threat, a great crowd and 30 Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series teams would converge upon HOT to battle it out. The field was split into three-10 car qualifying heat races, with the top 16 in combined finishing and passing points lining up the straight-up feature event lineup, with the balance of the 24 feature race starters advancing from the B-feature.
Lots of passing would highlight the mainly non-stop heat races with heat race winners Chase Randall (started 4th), Austin Mundie (1) and Blake Mallory (2) all advancing to the feature. But the top four overall qualifiers - after passing points were added in - ended up being Chase Randall (2), Dalton Steed (8) Channin Tankersley (10) and Blake Mallory (2).
This set the stage for literally a repeat of the March 12th 2021 ‘Bandit event at HOT, as the top three racers for a large part of that feature event included the trio of Randall, Tankersley and Steed.
When the green flag dropped for the 25-lapper, the slick and smooth racing surface would allow racers to utilize both the very bottom and upper deck of the speedway with Dalton Steed taking the point for the first four laps until a quick yellow flag would come out for DJ Estes who suffered mechanical woes and sidelining him for the rest of the event.
On the restart Steed would pull away from Chase Randall to a 10-car length lead with Channin Tankersley in tow. Meanwhile, Marcus Thomas was starting to pick his way through the field, advancing up to the 4th position.
Tankersley would take over the 2nd position from Randall on lap 8 setting his sights on Steed, while Thomas began pressuring Randall for 3rd. Thomas would take over 3rd from Randall – when disaster struck for 2nd place runner Tankersley.
On lap 9, Junior Jenkins #23 sprinter would experience severe rear end issues and was slowly making his way through the extreme upper shelf of the track at the apex of corner 3 and 4, when 2nd place runner Tankersley would pancake Junior and knocking down the RR tire of the Old School Racing #17g in the process – resulting in his night ending abruptly.
Now that moved Thomas back into the 3rd spot next to Randall for the restart, setting up yet another dynamic as the event resumed.
On that restart, Steed and Thomas would pull away from the field as Randall got wide going into corner one and losing two spots in the process.
The battle between Steed and Thomas would intensify on lap 10 when Thomas would blast by Steed on the low side taking the lead until a quick yellow would come out on lap twelve when Austin Saunders would get crossed up in corner two, and bringing out another quick yellow.
When the green flag emerged, there was a bit of a stack-up of cars getting together resulting in ‘Bandits points leader John Ricketts pulling to the infield with suspension damage – and 3rd place runner Chase Randall getting a flat LF tire.
Once the race resumed, that would move Austin Mundie into the 3rd position – who quickly shot by Steed on lap 13 taking over the 2nd spot. Meanwhile, seemingly out of nowhere, Jeb Sessums had been making his way through the field from his 17th place starting position to enter the top 5.
By now the track was taking rubber, as evidenced by some smoking RR tires, when the race was paused for a quick spin in corner 4.
The top three at that point on lap 19 were Thomas, Steed and Sessums. Thomas would pull ahead on the restart with Steed and Sessums resuming their top three in running order. At that point, the cars of Steed and Sessums were heavily smoking their RR tires while Thomas would streak across the checkers in the win position – and picking up $2,000 in the process.
We’d like to thank the Heart O’ Texas Speedway staff, especially track promoter Selby Holder and staff for providing a smooth racing surface after the several inches of rainfall just a few days prior to the event. It is not an easy process after that much rainfall to make a track surface perfect, but it did stay smooth the entire event – which resulted in virtually no cars being torn up in the process.
Thank you also the appreciative HOT fans, who were both plentiful and very much ‘in to’ the racing program – as they were cheering on their favorite drivers and the action the Series brought them.
NEXT UP for the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series is a trip up to Texas’ Dirt Track Palace – Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls – on Saturday, May 22nd. Note early start times are in effect, with 6:30pm hot laps and at 7pm the first heat race will hit the track. The ‘Bandits will be racing 2nd division out all night long.

PRICKETT TOPS GROWING FIELD FOR LATEST WESTERN MIDGET RACING WIN

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (May 14, 2021) – Battling a field full of fresh faces and enthusiasm for the growing Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction season, Fresno’s David Prickett affirmed his place at the top of the pedestal. Prickett earned his 15th career win in the production-powered Midget series on Friday night at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif. The win opened a two-night weekend for the series with a stop on Saturday at Petaluma Speedway on tap.

Stockton’s John Sarale won the first heat race and was part of a four-pronged debut effort into the series from car owner Kevin Felkins. Brentwood’s Blake Bower won the second heat race.

The 20-lap feature started with Antioch’s Shawn Arriaga losing a wheel as he entered turn one. Sarale took over the top position while Bower bicycled trying to pass on the inside. Prickett attempted a two-for-one on Sarale and Bower before cautions flew for Gary Dunn spun in turn four.

Both Prickett and 2020 Delta Speedway Micro champion Caden Sarale passed Bower on the restart. Prickett then worked up the inside to take the lead on lap seven. Prickett drove ahead for the victory while John Sarale used the outside line to roll ahead of his son Caden for second. Bower and Lodi’s Nate Wait rounded out the top-five.

Brubaker earns AFCS win at Attica; Irey survives last lap tangle for late model victory; Weaver gets 60th 305 win

Friday, May 14, 2021

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio, - Stuart Brubaker admits he got a little complacent while leading the 410 feature at Attica Raceway Park Friday, May 14 for the Eric Phillips 33rd Anniversary Classic. That allowed Chris Andrews to close lap after lap. Late in the race when Andrews showed Brubaker his nose, the track’s 2018 champion got back up on the wheel and Brubaker drove to the victory on American Powersports/The Adkins Group/Smith Paving Night Presented by Integrity Auto and Truck Sales.

The win was Brubaker’s ninth career win in the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints. It also boosts the Fremont, Ohio driver’s standing in the Kistler Racing Products/All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads Attica Fremont Championship 410 Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group and was worth $4,000.

“I started backing my corners up a little bit…you know I’m getting a older and my shoulders get tired. He (Andrews) stuck his nose in there and I was like oh shit I have to pick it back up. I kept missing it down here off two and I’d hit that hole and run underneath it and I could only get about half or three quarter throttle down the back stretch. When we hit it right we can get wide open so I knew we were fine. This is so awesome. These guys have been working their tails off…thank you Donny, Zach, Benji, Tyler…he can’t be here tonight…my girlfriend isn’t here and my daughter…everybody has been busting their butts on this family owned team to get it to where we are at tonight,” said Brubaker beside his Edward Jones, Tri County Tarp, Dave Story Equipment, Kyle Daugherty Century 21, Bolte Real Estate, Randy Beeker Excavating, SRM Construction, KS Sales & Service, Speedways Bar & Grill, Handy Grafix, Gressman Powersports, Schaeffer’s Oil, Phillips Electric, Hoffbauer Disposal Services, Finish Line Race Fuels backed machine.

Mansfield, Ohio’s Matt Irey, Attica’s 2016 late model track champion, survived a tangle with a lapped car coming to the checkers to claim his second win of the season in the Propane.com/Dirt Nerd’s Podcast UMP Late Models. It was his 7th career win at Attica and moved him to within six markers of Ryan Markham for the lead in the track’s points.

“Nothing against the guys that are out there racing….just hold your line. That’s all we ask…the faster cars just want you to hold your line. Then it doesn’t nearly cost you a race like that. We had a really, really good race car. Started seventh and before I knew it I was up to second and I was like oh man we got something. I can’t thank everyone enough…Brent at Accu-Force, Robin, Rod Eddleblute’s Garage, my mom, my dad, my wife, Justin, Chris whose at home…he gets the tires ready for us…all my sponsors,” said Irey of his Dalton Garage Door, Nugen Led Lights, Artizian Concrete, RL Bond Septic, Specialty Tree Service, Kilgore & Harring CPA, Shagalees backed #36.

After opening the season with three straight wins in the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints, five time Attica division champion Paul Weaver went through some bad luck, including a blown engine a couple of weeks ago. The Fremont, Ohio driver took the lead new division track record holder Jamie Miller with just seven laps to go and went on to score his 60th career victory in the division. It was also a great points night in the NAPA of Bryan AFCS 305 Sprint Series Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales.

“We kind of figured they were doing something to get the track really good for the outlaws next week so we didn’t want to over tighten it ….it was just maneuverable. This was the second race on this motor…it was Chase Dunham’s motor that Bob Hampshire…thank God he let me borrow it…he was keeping it for Creed (Kemenah, his grandson) for the end of this year possibly. It’s mine now. I have to thank Bob Hampshire, Daniel for being there, B&B Drain, Pam and Steve Brown, M&L Excavating and everyone that helps,” said Weaver.

At the drop of the green for the 30-lap Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprint A-main, pole-sitter Brubaker jumped into the lead over Duane Zablocki, Brandon Spithaler, Cole Macedo, Chris Andrews, Nate Dussel and Caleb Griffith. Brubaker quickly pulled away to a nearly three second lead by lap six with Spithaler and Macedo moving into second and third respectively.

A caution on lap 11 wiped out Brubaker’s big lead and another a lap later kept the field close. Brubaker executed perfect restarts and drove away as Spithaler and Andrews battled for second with Andrews gaining the spot on lap 14. With six laps to go, Andrews began closing on Brubaker, chopping a tenth of a second off lap after lap.

With a hand full of laps remaining Andrews showed Brubaker his nose which prompted the leader to sit up and drive which he did to take the win over Andrews, Spithaler, DJ Foos and Macedo.

Jim Gingery and Markham brought the field to green for the 25 lap Propane.com/Dirt Nerds Podcast Late Model A-main with Markham gaining the advantage over Gingery, Casey Noonan, Tyler Thompson, Irey and Justin Chance. While Markham drove away, a tremendous battle ensued for second with Gingery, Noonan, Thompson and Irey with Noonan taking the spot on lap three while Irey moved into third.

Markham jumped the cushion in turn four on lap four and that allowed Irey to close. The duo battled side by side over the next three laps before Irey took the lead on lap seven and began to pull away as they raced into traffic. Thompson drove into second on lap 13 and was closing on Irey when the leader also bobbled on the cushion in turn four on lap 15 but was saved by a debris caution.

On the restart Irey pulled away again while Markham rallied to regain second. With four laps to go Markham had pulled right on Irey’s rear bumper. The battle was taking place as they raced through traffic. Coming to the checkers, Irey made heavy contact with a lapped car but made a great save to drive to the win over Markham, Thompson, Chance and Devin Shiels.

At the start of the 25 lap Fremont Fence 305 A-main, two time track champion and new track record holder Jamie Miller quickly established himself as the car to beat as he quickly pulled away from the field. A good fight for second between Kody Brewer, Seth Schneider and Weaver took place until a caution on lap seven.

When the green flew again so did Miller as Schneider and Weaver gave chase. Weaver took second on lap 12 and quickly cut into Miller’s lead. Weaver drove under Miller on lap 18 but Miller fought back. Weaver was able to move around in lapped traffic and drove away for the win over Miller, Steve Rando, Brewer and Schneider.

Attica Raceway Park will host the World of Outlaw NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series for a $10,000 to win affair on the Kistler Engines Classic Friday, May 21. The 305 sprints will also be in action.

Brown and Friedrichsen Hustle to Bull Haulers Brawl Presented by Folkens Brothers Trucking Victories During Jackson Motorplex Season Opener

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (May 14, 2021) - Brian Brown and Casey Friedrichsen opened the season at Jackson Motorplex in impressive fashion Friday night during the Bull Haulers Brawl presented by Folkens Brothers Trucking.

Both drivers led the first lap and the final lap of their feature, but were forced to rebound after being passed early in the race on an electric track.

Brown scored his first victory of the season and first at Jackson Motorplex since May 2017 during the $5,000-to-win Northern Outlaw Sprint Association main event, which was the first ever at the track.

"I got to traffic the first time and I was way too cautious," he said. "Skylar (Prochaska) showed us how hard to run. Hats off to Skylar. He did a great job. The No. 2ks team did great as well. A great podium and we were lucky enough to come out on top."

Brown paced the field for the first five laps of the 25-lap main event before Prochaska took over the top spot by using the bottom in turns one and two on Lap 6. Prochaska increased his advantage before a caution on Lap 9 set up a double-file restart. Brown quickly reclaimed the lead and pulled away in traffic before a caution on Lap 23 bunched the field up for a late dash to the finish. It was to no avail as Brown won by 2.008 seconds.

Prochaska was the runner up and he beamed on the frontstretch during the post-race interviews.

"It's just good to be standing on the frontstretch again," he said. "We got (Brown) in lapped traffic. That was fun by itself. He had better starts than we did."

Matt Juhl was the final finisher on the podium.

"I got a rough start there and had to rebound," he said. "The more the track got worked in I kept getting faster throughout the race."

Brooke Tatnell advanced from 14th to fourth to earn the Quick Change Rebuilds Hard Charger Award and Justin Henderson maneuvered from 12 th to fifth.

Brown and Prochaska were up front from the start of the night as each driver set quick time in their qualifying group. James Broty, Tim Estenson, Nick Ranten and Jack Croaker picked up heat race victories. Nick Omdahl was the B Main winner.

Friedrichsen led the first four laps of the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series feature, which was shortened from 20 laps to 15 laps because of nearby inclement weather. As traffic neared Friedrichsen tested a higher groove in turns three and four, which opened the door for Mike Moore to drive by on Lap 5.

Moore kept Freidrichsen at bay by approximately three quarters of a second for most of the remainder of the feature before he got tight in traffic, pushing up the track in turns one and two with two laps remaining. Friedrichsen capitalized to regain the lead on Lap 14 and he held on for the triumph by 0.581 of a second.

"It just kind of opened up," he said. "Everything worked out well. We're just ecstatic."

Clayton Christensen rounded out the podium with Carter Chevalier finishing fourth and Bill Johnson fifth.

Friedrichsen, Jesse Lindberg and Dusty Ballenger were the heat race winners.

The next event at Jackson Motorplex is May 25 for the Bank Midwest IMCA Series featuring a-modifieds, stock cars, hobby stocks, b-modifieds, hornets and sport compacts.

Briggs tops Streicher Memorial.Conover, Koz, and Hicks win at Limaland

Lima, OH 05/14/2021 by Gerry Keysor

For the first time since August of 2019, the gates at Limaland Motorsports Park swung open for teams and fans to come together at the 1/4 mile of thunder. After losing the season opener to weather on May 7th, Limaland kicked off the 2021 season in a very special way with the running of the inaugural Mike Streicher Memorial featuring the USAC Midwest Thunder Midgets. Anna Ohio's Stratton Briggs won the 25 lap feature honoring the memory of Streicher, the 1991 USAC National Midget Champion, and longtime instructor at the University of Northwestern Ohio. Jordan Conover picked up the win in the Bud Thunderstocks, Jeff Koz bagged the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modified victory and Chris Hicks won the first ever Dirt Track Truck Series event at Limaland Motorsports Park.

The USAC Midwest Thunder Midgets were first on the track in their 25 lap A Main honoring Mike Streicher. No. 36 Ian Creager and No. 71 Stratton Briggs would lead the field to green with Briggs getting out to the early lead. No. 11T Jacob Denney had a lightning fast car, making his way past Briggs on lap 3 and pulling away from Briggs after a couple of cautions during the event. As the leaders entered turns 3&4 on the final lap, 2 lapped cars got together collecting Denney, Brigs was able to navigate around the crash, and would inherit the lead for one final restart. Briggs would pick up a very emotional victory over No. 93C Chett Gehrke, No. 36 Creager, No. 11H Abby Hohlbein, and No.1FR Ryan Tuowas

Next up were the Bud Thunderstocks in their 15 lap feature event. No. 57 Jeffrey Jessup and No. 23 Casey Barr would bring the field to the initial green flag, with Barr grabbing the early lead. Jessup spun on lap 5 and nearly collected the No.7C of Jordan Conover. On the restart, the field would get one more lap in before No. 26 Justin Long, and No. 82 Chris Douglas would tangle in turn 2, bringing out the caution flag once again. As the cars wound up for the green flag, Conover would make a huge move in turn 1 on the inside to power by both No. 1M Jeff Matheny, and Barr to grab the lead. Matheny would bring out the final caution on lap 11 as he spun in turn 3, and took the No. 1M to the pits. On the restart, Conover, pulled away and grabbed his first victory of 2021. An emotional Conover climbed from the seat of the 7C clutching the steering wheel that had once been in Mike Streicher's midget, and dedicated the win to the memory of the late Mike Streicher. No. 74D Craig Dippman would finish 2nd, Barr 3rd, No. 22T Tony Anderson 4th, and No. 87 Andy Welch would complete the top 5.

The Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds would take to the track next for their 20 lap A Main. Defending UMP Modified track champion No. 65 Todd Sherman would lead the field to green alongside No. 4G Bill Griffith. Sherman would grab the lead and seemed to be on his way to yet another victory at Limaland until getting sideways on the front straightaway on lap 12, losing several positions but gathering the car up and keeping the race under green. No. 16 Jeff Koz would inherit the point after battling his way from a 7th place starting position, and would survice a final restart after a late caution to pick up the win. No. 3W Dylan Woddling finished 2nd, No. 34X Shane O'Connor 3rd, No. 22T Tony Anderson 4th, and Sherman would bounce back to complete the top 5.

The Dirt Track Truck Series would wrap up the racing at Limaland in their 15 lap feature. No. 99W Vincent Wagoner, and No. 71 Chris Hicks would bring the field down to the green flag, with Hicks securing the early race lead. No. 21 Dwayne Powell, and No. 3 Blake Hayder would keep Hicks in sight with Hayder grabbing the lead on lap 6. Hicks would get back by on lap 7, as Hayder would slow with a flat right rear tire, bringing out the caution flag. Hicks would survive a late race challenge from Powell, and a final restart on lap 13 to grab the inaugural DTTS win at Limaland. No. 99D Kenny Douglas would come home 2nd, with No. Powell 3rd, No. 72 Derrick Cordia 4th, and No. 19 Brooke Ramey completing the top 5.

Limaland Motorsports Park roars back to life next Friday night May 14th with the 22nd Annual Run for the Rabbit, featuring the K&L Ready Mix NRA 360 Sprints honoring the memory of the late Travis "The Rabbit" Miller who was a long time competitor at Limaland.

Ziehl Tops Treharn in Mother’s Day Weekend Thriller

Vado, NM (5/8/21) – The Lucas Oil POWRi NMMRA Sprint Car Series returned to the gorgeous Vado Speedway Park on Saturday for the second time in the 2021 season for a special Mother’s Day Weekend celebration. With the points battle tight, every driver had their eyes on a solid performance for the second trip to New Mexico’s most southern speedway.
Action around the notoriously wide 3/8ths mile track would kick off for drivers with a pair of qualifying heat races to determine the starting lineup for the 25-lap feature event.
In heat 1, it was all Los Lunas, New Mexico’s Colt Treharn who took a demanding win over Albuquerque’s Spencer Hill and Caleb Saiz. Heat 2 offered fans some excitement as well, as the veteran Rick Ziehl brought his No. 20z across the line first, ahead of defending Vado feature winner, Devon Amos, and rookie, Caleb Stelzig.
With heat race competition in the books, it was time for 25 laps around the Vado Speedway Park to see who the next winner would be with the Lucas Oil POWRi NMMRA Sprint Car Series. Treharn and Stelzig would bring the field under fire in turn four and the battle was immediately on. The top spot would go to Amos early as he rolled the bottom with Treharn in tow and Hill working the topside of the track in search for grip in 3rd.
The field came to a stop on lap five for a flip in turn four for JR Bonesteel after contact with the No. 2 of Michael Fanelli. Bonesteel was okay but understandably upset after his shortened feature. Upon the restart, all eyes moved toward Rick Ziehl as he jetted to the cushion and grabbed the lead from Amos on lap 12. TreharnfollowedZiehl through, and the race for the win was on as the two leaders began to catch lap traffic. The crowd rose to their feet watching the two tango on the track side-by-side for the final ten laps, separated by less than 0.2 seconds. On the final lap, Treharn closed the gap to Ziehlmore than ever, but was bested in a photo finish at the line by a mere 0.0017 seconds. Ziehl’s win was identified as the closest finish in the history of the Vado Speedway Park. Rounding out the top five was Amos, Saiz, and Travis Oldfield. Ziehl was also credited as the hard charger of the night, advancing seven spots in route to his first Lucas Oil POWRi NMMRA victory of the season.
The Lucas Oil POWRi NMMRA Sprint Cars will return to action this Saturday night for the “Spring Fling” at Sandia Speedway.

 

 

Brendan Mullen claims third career NOSA win; first at River Cities


By Mike Spieker

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (May 9, 2021) – The Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA Sprints kicked off their 27th season on Friday night as River Cities Speedway host race one of what is set to be a grueling 38-race schedule. The three-tenths mile bullring was in prime condition for the 25-lap main event. After the checkers flew and the dust settled, a first-time River Cities Speedway winner emerge in RydellCars.com Victory Lane.
Brendan Mullen scored his third career Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA Sprint Car feature win and his first at River Cities Speedway.

The 18-year-old Grand Forks driver started on the pole and led the opening lap over 2019 series champion Nick Omdahl. Another caution on lap 10 for Pierce moved Mullen back up to second for the restart.

Mullen regained the lead with a textbook slider in turns one and two after the race resumed.

Defending series champion Jade Hastings ran into issues on lap 15 after contact with Jack Croaker while battling for third, which broke the steering on the No. 8H. The damage ended Hastings’ night early as he was credited with a 17th place finish.

Once out front, Mullen set sail as he cruised to the win. Omdahl finished second as Pierce rebounded to round out the podium.

Wade Nygaard and Tom Egeland rounded out the top five.

“I’ve been coming here my whole life and I’ve seen a million races here. This feels really awesome to win one,” said Mullen after the race. “About five laps in I knew the car was on rails. Todd Slocum did a masterful job on the set up tonight. When I had Omdahl and Pierce pass me, I was like ‘Oh boy. They are way faster than we are,’ but luckily Pierce made a mistake and I got to reset mentally. Omdahl and I had a couple of really good battles on those restarts and that was a ton of fun. It feels really good to get a win at River Cities.”

This weekend, the NOSA Sprints gear up for a busy three-race stretch. On Friday, the series heads to Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn. for its inaugural visit to Tod Quiring's four-tenths mile speed plant as Folkens Brothers Trucking presents the $5,000-to-win Bull Haulers Brawl. On Saturday, the series will head east to I-90 Speedway in Hartford, S.D. in what will again be NOSA's first visit to the speedway.

Spring Sprint Car Special

May 8, 2021, New Richmond, WI by: Kris Peterson
The Spring Sprint Car Special at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, WI would feature all sprint cars for the evening. The PIRTEK UMSS winged and traditional sprint cars would join with the IRA 410 Sprints and the 600cc Micro Sprints to create a fantastic all sprint car event. Each division would have 2 qualifying races with Brad Peterson and Harry Hanson winning in the Traditionals while Trevor Reding and Patrick Heikkinen would take the checkers in the Wings.

In the first feature on the night, Chevalier and Heikkinen would lead the PITEK UMSS Winged division to the green. The 15 of Chevalier would slide up a bit on the high side and the 4th place starter Chase Viebrock would quickly take the lead in turns 1 & 2. The first caution of the night for rookie Hannah Graph spinning in turn one would reset the field. Viebrock would start to gain a hefty lead getting into lap traffic with 13 to go. Harry Hanson and Patrick Heikkinen were putting on a show for the 2nd spot when Heikkinen would be the cause of the 2nd caution of the night. Viebrock would once again lead the restart with 11 laps to go. Newcomer Trevor Reding got by the 7 of Hanson for 3rd when he became the 3rd caution for spitting out the drive shaft in turn 4 ending a great run for the 33 ride with 4 laps to go. In the end it would be the 50 of Viebrock taking the checkers followed by Chevalier, Hanson, Hansen and Ryan Johnson rounding out the top 5.

The PIRTEK UMSS Renegade Traditional Sprints would hit the tack midway through the night. Brad Peterson and Harry Hanson leading the pack to green, The previous nights winner and point leader Cam Schafer would start in 11th. Peterson would take the early lead and pull away by a few car lengths over Hanson and Anderson.in 3rd and closing the gap quickly. Cam was working the bottom which is unusual for the high side hustler and had worked his way up to 6th. With 15 laps to go the 7 of Hanson would slide by Peterson for the lead and the 87 of Mueller looking to steal that 2nd position as well. In the end it would be the 7 of Hanson taking the red and white checkers followed by Peterson, Mueller, Roach and Schafer rounding out the top 5.

Up next for the PIRTEK UMSS Renegade series will be the Annual Bus Races at Cedar Lake Speedway on May 15, 2021 which will feature the Traditional Sprint Cars.

 

 

Austin McCarl, Yeigh and Lindberg Hustle to Huset's Speedway Season-Opening Victories During Rosenbauer America Night

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (May 9, 2021) - Austin McCarl, Cory Yeigh and Jesse Lindberg kicked off the 2021 season at Huset's Speedway by earning a trip into Victory Lane on Sunday evening during Rosenbauer America Night.

The Mother's Day Opener signaled the much anticipated return of weekly racing at the high-banked dirt oval and all three features yielded exciting battles throughout the field.

McCarl hustled from eighth to second and inherited the lead on Lap 20 of the Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig main event when polesitter Justin Henderson, who led the first 19 laps, spun after contact with a driver he was attempting to lap. Dominic Scelzi, who had driven from the 14th starting position and was posting the fastest laps on the track while the lead drivers were in traffic, restarted second, but McCarl was efficient to lead the final six laps en route to the victory.

"To be at Huset's on Mother's Day again, it just feels right," he said during an interview in Victory Lane.

Matt Juhl rounded out the podium with Brooke Tatnell placing fourth and Carson McCarl fifth.

Carson McCarl set quick time in qualifying out of the 24 drivers competing to earn the Nordica Wearhouses bonus. Skylar Prochaska, Juhl and Wade Nygaard each won a heat race.

Yeigh was also a big mover in the Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks main event as he powered from seventh to the win. Yeigh quickly maneuvered into third place by using the high side of the track and he pounced on a restart with seven laps remaining to take the lead.

Tim Dann posted a runner-up result with Dan Jensen, who led the first 13 laps of the feature, finishing third. Brandon Ferguson was fourth and Shaun Taylor ended fifth.

Ferguson, Taylor and Yeigh registered heat race triumphs.

Lindberg led the distance of the 20-lap Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series A Main for his first career victory at the track. Lee Goos Jr. earned a second-place finish with Dusty Ballenger, Casey Abbas and 16 th-starting Shane Fick rounding out the top five, respectively.

Abbas, Bayley Ballenger and Jared Jansen were the heat race winners.

The next race at Huset's Speedway is Sunday when the Northern Outlaw Sprint Association joins the Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig. Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks and the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series will also be in action.

SILVER DOLLAR SPEEDWAY

(May 7, 2021)

Tanner Carrick Scores Third Career Chico Win

(Chico, CA 5-9-21)…Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick won his third career sprint career race during Friday nights special show. A total of 43-winged 360 sprint cars graced the pit area. Carrick was solid all night but did benefit from the misfortune of race leader Shane Golobic on the final lap. Golobic had just recently passed Carrick for the race lead on lap 17. Up to that point Carrick had dominated the race. With Golobic out front, slower traffic was looming ahead. As Golobic received the white flag and entered turn one, two slower cars ahead of him seemed to check up and bottleneck the track. Golobic reacted and tried to change his line but his right caught a rough patch in the track, and it sent the No. 17w upside down. Carrick was in the second spot and after the red flag situation, was the leader once again.

It was good to see Sean Becker back up in the mix again. Becker restarted second, and it was a spot he would finish in. Yet, behind Becker was the driver we all might have been pulling for. Blake Carrick started his main event charge in the C main. He won the C. Then started last row of the B main and won that. Carrick then started 21st in the feature. He went from 21st to third in the 23 laps that had been completed. The final two laps he could not get around Becker and ended up third. We calculated Blake passed 31 cars throughout the three mains he was in. John Michael Bunch was solid all night and came home in fourth place. Justyn Cox rounded out the top five with his steady driving style.

Keith Ross won the exciting 20-lap feature for the hobby stocks. Ross had a late race battle with Kyle Cheney and Shannon Collins. Collins had a fantastic night and ended up finishing second. It was encouraging to see Collins have a successful finish. Cheney, who had led most of the race, was disqualified during a post-race tech issue. This moved up Kevin Lesch into the third spot at the line. The BEAST, Jacob Johnson came from his 13th starting spot all the way home to a fourth-place finish. Multi-time track champion Kyle Allen rounded out the top five. As usual, the hobby stocks put on a close competitive race. Ross clean-swept the night with his heat one win. Toby Merrifield earned the win in heat two. Zach Lindgren won the third and final heat. A total of 18 hobby stocks put on a driving clinic tonight.

Matt Micheli took the lead on lap 17 and won the 20-lap street stock feature. Micheli pumped his left fist into the air as he crossed the line first. Richard Vander Ploeg led the first five laps. On lap six, Phil Marino took control of the race. Marino held the top spot until lap 16. Props to Bill Hall, who finished second tonight, and won the second heat race with ease. It was nice to see veteran Terry Lawrence get behind the wheel of the family No. 4t and score a third-place finish. Richard Workman crossed the line in fourth. Fritz Zanker rounded out the top five. Marino won the first heat race. A total of 11 street stocks attended tonight’s race.

Experience Pays Off: Davie Franek wins Lucas Oil ESS Opener at Genesee.

BATAVIA, NY – Very few drivers in attendance Saturday night at the Genesee County Fairgrounds have seen the 1/3rd mile oval. After all it’s been since 2007 that the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) last visited the Genesee Speedway. But it was experience that helped Wantage, NJ’s Davie Franek take the opening event on the 2021 Tour and take home over $2,000.

It wasn’t experience on the oval, Franek never seen to Batavia, NY where the dirt track lies. It was that Franek has been on the road virtually every weekend since the end of January. While some teams in the pits haven’t raced a lap in over a year and a half due to COVID shut down, Franek took to the road to find races.

Passing Matt Farnham with just five laps to go in lapped traffic, the familiar #28F never looked back for his seventh career ESS win. “I think racing early in the season helps you, you’re already in a groove and feel comfortable,” he went on, “Especially on restarts, when you don’t know anyone’s tendencies out there you kind of treat them all like Donny Schatz and buckle down to focus. Restarts were key for me, I kept on getting a car or two on each one.”

Franek started in the 10th position after the redraw but methodically moved his way to the front. When he got to second behind Farnham, he actually knew he had the advantage. “It’s always best to be in second, especially when it comes to slower traffic. You just go where they aren’t,” Franek said, “He (Farnham) was getting loose in the corners and with the slower car in front of him it just opened up the door for me to go around.”

For Franek, he’s had a good start with many organizations and has some decisions to do. “I will be at the next race at Thunder Mountain and we will go from there,” Although Franek did point out one fact, “ESS is the only organization we haven’t won the championship with yet, but we will see what the schedule plays out this year.”

For Farnham, the sometimes sprint car driver, sometimes big block modified driver, it was his first ever ESS appearance and he was hoping to bring home the checkered. “We had a real good car all night, I was able to put it pretty much anywhere on the track and get by cars,” said the Towanda, NY pilot, “When Chuck (Hebing) went off the track we got the lead, and I was just trying to go as hard as I could out front. But the car just started to lose a little bit at the end and when I got behind the slower car, he (Franek) got me,”

He went on with a smile, “Hey it was a good finish for our first ESS race and we got to do it real close to home.”

Hebing drew the pole for the 25-lap finale and he led the first 10 laps of the feature until his car just slipped off the top of turn two giving the lead to Farnham. Unfortunately, just one lap later was a large eight car mishap in turn one happened on a restart that ended Hebing’s bid to come from the back.

Farnham then controlled the race from there. As the final 14 laps went non-stop, Franek used the laps to gain momentum and the eventual pass for the win.

Defending ESS champion Paulie Colagiovanni took advantage of Danny Varin slipping off turn two on the last lap to bring home his #10 on the last podium spot. “We just didn’t come out of the box strong tonight but the crew just kept digging all night long,” said the recently turned 20 year old, “We learned from the dash and then just tried to move up as much as we could on the feature. Third isn’t bad from where we started out.”

Varin did come home in fourth with Denny Peebles recovering from a heat race turn over to win the B-Main and collect $150 in hard charger bonuses to take fifth. Rounding out the top ten were, Dylan Swiernik, Joe Trenca, Kelly Hebing, Chad Miller and Jeff Cook.

Genesee Notes: A strong field of 27 sprints kicked off the 2021 season for the Lucas Oil Tour….It’s was shaking off the rust for many with no less than six sprints finding their way on their wings during the night…Franek set a new track record in his timed hot lap session, the time of 14.763 now sets the stage….After a weekend off the Empire Super Sprints head to Thunder Mountain followed by Brewerton and Fulton on Memorial Weekend.

Shane Golobic, Dan Jinkerson, Austin Struthers and Craig Holsted capture Mother’s Day Madness wins at Placerville

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – May 8, 2021…Fremont, California’s Shane Golobic put on a clinic through lapped traffic en route to a clean sweep of the night during the “Mother’s Day Madness” showcase at Placerville Speedway on Saturday.

Sharing victory lane with Golobic at the event were Dan Jinkerson with the Pure Stocks, Austin Struthers in the Mini Trucks and Craig Holsted with the BCRA Lightning Sprints. A total of 64-cars were on hand in the pit area for another night of championship auto racing in “Old Hangtown.”

Golobic drew the pole position for the 25-lap Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 feature and never looked back during the contest. Following a red flag on the start a long green flag run was then seen and Golobic impressively pulled away from the field. At times, the reigning “Nor*Cal Posse Shootout” winner was able to put five lapped cars between himself and the rest of the pack. The racing for second on back remained fast and furious however, as Colfax driver Willie Croft jumped into the runner spot.

A caution finally waved with 19-laps complete and during the ensuing restart all eyes were on Justyn Cox, who blasted to the outside of the speedway. Cox made an exciting move around Andy Forsberg and Croft to grab second, only to suffer a rear end issue which ended his race on lap 21. After that yellow flag period the final four circuits clicked off without incident and Golobic drove away to record his 10th career Winged 360 victory at the track.

It capped off a stout night for the Matt Wood Racing/ Elk Grove Ford No. 17w team, as Golobic also earned the ADCO Driveline Fast Time Award and captured his heat race. Croft put together a strong outing on Saturday by qualifying second overall to begin the evening, before bringing home a runner up finish at the checkered.

Aromas, California’s Justin Sanders originally lined up 12th and was a man on a mission during the last restart, thrilling the crowd by running the high-scary side of the bullring. Sanders came from seventh with four-laps remaining and challenged Croft P2 on the final corner but had to settle for third at the stripe.

Forsberg and Templeton’s Kaleb Montgomery completed the top-five in the feature. Rounding out the top-10 were 13th starting Tanner Carrick, Blake Carrick, Joel Myers Jr., Michael Faccinto and Andy Gregg. Montgomery won the B-main, while heat race victories went to Golobic, Gregg, Blake Carrick and Myers Jr.

The Pure Stock division yet again provided thrills for the fans in the stands and put on an excellent 20-lap feature that went right down to the wire. Diamond Springs wheel-man Dan Jinkerson held the lead but felt intense pressure from two-time track champion Nick Baldwin for much of the way. The two Stock Car favorites at the speedway raced closely together as the laps wound down and kept everyone on the edge of their seats.

When flagman Ron Stahl waved the Coors Light white flag Baldwin tucked right up behind the leader. As the duo headed into turn three for the final time Baldwin drove it deep to the inside but could not quite make the move. Jinkerson hit his marks and accepted the checkered flag over Baldwin, Kevin Jinkerson, Ryan Peter and Chris Mcginnis. Russ Murphy, Ken Bernstein, Jonathan Walsh, Jason Palmer and Chris D’angelo completed the top-10. Baldwin and Palmer claimed the two heat races held.

The Mini Trucks put on an exceptional 20-lap contest as well during the evening. Early on it was a three-truck battle for the top-spot between Austin Struthers, Thomas Jensen and three-time winner this year Wyatt Lakin. The trio absolutely threw it down on the quarter-mile and ran inches apart until Lakin stalled off turn two, bringing out a caution at the halfway point. He was able to restart and carve his way back through the pack but soon after had the same issue put an end to his night.

Struthers continued to run up front and feel heavy pressure from Jensen every step of the way. At the checkered flag it was Struthers though who picked up the win over Jensen, Mike Miller, Aaron Rupley and Howard Miller. Jensen captured the lone heat race held at the event.

The BCRA Lightning Sprints contested their third Placerville Speedway event of the season on Saturday. Rancho Cordova’s Craig Holsted and Waterford’s Dakota Albright went back and forth early on for the top spot. After the entertaining exchange Holsted held command but Albright raced right behind him for the duration of the 20-lap main event.

Late in the going veteran Scott Kinney charged up to second as Holsted crossed the stripe for his second consecutive BCRA Lightning Sprint win at the track. Kinney earned the runner up spot over Albright, Terry Bergstrom and Danica Jo Parker. Brandon Leedy and Albright won the heat races while Holsted set fast time to begin the evening.

Wilmot Raceway

(Wilmot, Wis., Saturday, May 8, 2021)--Tim Cox of Park City, IL captured his first 20-lap Autometer/Brewington Electric Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Car Feature of the season Saturday, May 8 at Wilmot Raceway. Jimmy Sivia of Winthrop Harbor, IL took second with Clayton Rossmann of Wadsworth, IL third.
"I don't like starting up front, but it offered extra challenges to figure out what line to use," said Cox, who led flag to flag despite some challenges from both Sivia and Rossmann. "It's good to get a win. Extra special for my mother even though she's not here."
Oak Creek's Mark Heinert duplicated Cox fete by leading start to finish in the 20-lap IRA Lightning Sprint Feature, his first main win of the year. "I have to thank my main mechanic, my family and everyone who supports me," said Heinert.
In the modifieds, Caledonia's Chris Carlson made it back to back wins in the 20-lap feature. Genoa City's Nick Simons was a close second. "I knew Nick was coming, and I think the last caution gave me a chance to rethink the groove I was using which ended up working," said Carlson.
Mt. Pleasant's David McKellips ended a six-year winless drought in the Bandit 4-cylinder stock cars by capturing his first ever 15-lap feature. "Finally after six years with this car, we won the heat and the feature," said McKellips, dedicating the victories to a family member lost to the COVID virus.
Rob Maule of Hebron, IL captured his first 15-lap street stock feature after going winless last season. "We finally got rid of the gremlins," said Maule.

Clean Sweep for Rude at Skagit Speedway

5/8/21

Alger, WA – One week after leaving in an ambulance, Bill Rude had the night of his life at Skagit Speedway, pulling off a clean sweep and setting a new track record in the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints. Zack Fuller and Brian Michelson joined him as winners on the night.

The night started with Rude setting a new track record in time trials with a blistering lap of 11.883 seconds, nearly a full tenth under the old mark. After winning his heat race (and leading every lap of it), the veteran took full advantage of an 8 invert to lead every lap of the main event, keeping Evan Margeson and Kelsey Carpenter at bay to capture the win and secure the clean sweep in epic fashion. Cory Swatzina and Joe Lyon were the other heat race winners.

Zack Fuller took his first Skagit Speedway win in the Skagit Aggregates Modifieds with ease, taking the lead on lap six from Mike Steltz and driving away to an unchallenged win from there. Behind him, the battle for second was chaotic with multiple drivers holding the spot before Tim Phillips secured it for good late ahead of eventual third place finisher Ben Gunderson. The three heat races were won by Tyler Ketchum, Rick Smith and Craig Moore.

Week two of the Outlaw Tuners saw Brian Michelson win with ease as he led every lap of the main event by a huge margin. Much like the modified race, the action occurred for second, where Howard Vos ended up coming from the back of the pack to take the spot ahead of Colin Sims. Vos and Mike Macpherson won the heat races.

JUSTIN SANDERS EARNS FOURTH OCEAN SPRINTS WIN OF 2021 ON FRIDAY NIGHT

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (May 8, 2021) – With the first grandstand attendance in over 18 months as the backdrop, Justin Sanders won his fourth Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo feature event of the year on Friday night at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville. The victory is also Sanders’ 11th Sprint Car triumph of 2021 for the 2015 champion of the 360 Sprint Car series.

Tristan Guardino won his heat race and the dash to earn the pole for the 30-lap contest. The Fremont driver surrendered the lead into turn one when Fresno’s Dominic Scelzi slid past him. The caution flew on lap two for Salinas’ Jason Chisum with a flat left rear tire in turn two.

Scelzi picked the outside for the restart and fended off Sanders on the restart. Scelzi encountered lapped traffic by lap seven with his comfortable lead shrinking to a car length within one circuit. Sanders nosed inside Scelzi on the front stretch on lap ten but could not complete the pass. Sanders and Scelzi went side-by-side in lapped traffic on lap 12 before Sanders cleared him to complete lap 13.

Nick Ringo of Morgan Hill flipped side over side in turn four for a red flag on the following lap. Scelzi dove inside Sanders on the restart but Sanders crossed him over down the backstretch to maintain the lead. Keith Day, Jr. and JJ Ringo collided on the backstretch, sending Ringo into a flip in turn three for a red flag on lap 15.

15-year-old Corey Day nabbed second from Scelzi on the restart. Scelzi tracked down Day in lapped traffic to retake the position on lap 21. Cautions waved again on lap 22 when Salinas’ Jeremy Chisum spun in turn two.

On the restart, the top-three of Sanders, Scelzi, and Day lined up nearly nose-to-tail on the outside line. Lapped traffic again played a factor in the closing laps, allowing Day to earn second in turn three on lap 28. Sanders led Scelzi, Day, fast-timer Kaeding, and Guardino as the top-five finishers.

Joe Gallaher won his third Hobby Stock feature of the year by taking the 20-lap feature. Gallaher led wire-to-wire, persevering over a lap 16 restart for the win. Sam Kennedy of Watsonville won a physical battle with Jerry Skelton for second with Quintin Harris of Prunedale and Brady Muller rounding out the top-five.

San Benito Sheriff Roy Iler put on an impressive driving display to win the 15-lap Police-in-Pursuit main event. Santa Cruz County Sheriff A.J. Waltrip led the first lap before Iler spun for a caution in turn four. A multi-car skirmish on the same corner slowed the action again on lap two. Iler marched up to second by lap five.

The leaders went three-wide in lapped traffic on the front stretch with Iler’s car swapping ends back-and-forth in a near spin. Iler drove out of the “tank slapper” to take the lead on lap 12. Waltrip then slowed with a flat left rear tire. Iler topped Jackie Yeung of Capitola PD with Waltrip limping home in third. John Hohmann of Scotts Valley PD and Fernando Tellez of Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office were the balance of the top-five.

Kate Beardsley led all 15-laps for the Four Banger feature win. The two-time division champion drove ahead while Travis VanGilder fought off a challenge from 2020 champion Ryan McClelland of Scotts Valley for second. McClelland slowed then was eliminated when his car had a large fire on the backstretch. He was uninjured. When action resumed, VanGilder battled with Richard Mitchell. Beardsley led VanGilder, Mitchell, Nicole Beardsley, and Bill Beardsley at the finish.

Ocean Speedway continues to welcome back race fans with “Modified Madness” on Friday May 14. IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Mods, Western Midget Racing, Hobby Stocks, and Four Bangers will be competing. Tickets will be available on MyRacePass.

PIRTEK UMSS Teams at Eagle Valley Speedway

May 7, 2021, Jim Falls, WI by:Terry Lehnertz

Mostly sunny but chilly conditions greeted the PIRTEK Renegades as they invaded the Eagle Valley Speedway in Jim Falls, WI, with both the Traditional and Winged classes in action at the central Wisconsin speed plant. A pair of qualifiers in each division saw Cam Schafer and Blake Anderson score the top spot for the wingless racers, while Chase Viebrock and Mark Chevalier picked up wins for the wings.

Brad Peterson and Scott Brandt paced the 10-car traditional field to green, and it was Peterson showing the way, with Schafer, Brandt, Bryan Roach and Blake Anderson giving chase. With five laps in the books, Schafer and Peterson nearly made contact coming out of two, but Peterson held on to the lead. For the next three circuits, Schafer searched high and low while #93 of Peterson kept the point. With 12 laps to go, Schafer made his move coming out of turn two and made it stick. At the crossed flags, Schafer was leading; Anderson had worked around Peterson for second while the 2017 series champion Mike Mueller had worked his way into the top five. With all 20 laps scored, it was Schafer scoring his 4th feature win of the season in five tries. Anderson was closing at the end, but had to settle for second ahead of Roach, Brandt and Mueller.

Owen Carlson redrew the catbird’s seat for the winged A-main with Chevalier to his right hand side and Chevalier set the pace early with Carlson and Viebrock giving chase. As Chevalier stretched his lead, Viebrock meticulously reeled in the 07 of Carlson and with 15 laps in the books the battle for second erupted into bent steel and lost wheels – after coming together, the pair both made contact with the front stretch inside wall. Unfortunately, neither driver could continue. On the restart, Chevalier picked up right where he left off, but things weren’t settled behind him. Trevor Reding hounded Patrick Heikkinen in the late stages and he dove low out of turn four on the final lap to snatch second. Todd Hanson and John Vaillancourt rounded out the top five.

Both divisions of the UMSS PIRTEK Renegades are right back at on Saturday night, May 8, at the Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin. The Western Renegades are back at on Saturday as well, battling at Devils Lake Speedway in Crary, ND.

 

 

Arenz bolts to convincing
MSA Beaver Dam Raceway triumph

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) May 7, 2021 – Nearly three weeks after narrowly missing out on a victory in the Akright Auto of Sheboygan Falls Midwest Sprint Car Association 2021 season opener at the Beaver Dam Raceway, Sheboygan’s Travis Arenz reversed his fortunes by posting a commanding victory from deep in the field in the series’ return to the birthplace of Winged 360 Sprint Car Racing in Southeastern Wisconsin on Friday, May 7 in Beaver Dam, Wis.

A total of 27 360 Sprint Car competitors turned out on an unseasonably cold early May evening for the fourth MSA Series event of the 2021 campaign at the track where the Winged 360 Sprint Car division got its start in Southeastern Wisconsin in 1996.

The second MSA A-main of the 2021 season at Beaver Dam Raceway featured many of the same cast of characters at the front of the field as the first go-around on April 17, including the season-opening A-main winner Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove, who started on the pole, outside front row starter Tim Haddy of Waupun, who came home third on April 17, after battling for the lead in the early going, and Travis Arenz, who led the field to the white flag lap of the April 17 A main before Schmidt moved past in the final corner of the final lap to steal the victory.

This time Schmidt and Haddy waged an epic duel for the top spot in the early going with both veteran drivers swapping the lead back and forth before Haddy secured the top spot with a low move in turn four on lap 7.

On lap 10, the leaders caught the rear of the 22-car field as the 10th starting Arenz worked his way into third and quickly closed on the lead duo. On lap 11, Schmidt ducked under Haddy in turn three to regain the lead with Arenz in tow.

Arenz hounded Schmidt through heavy lapped traffic over the next four laps before using the high groove to power around the 2011 MSA champion, who got bottled up behind a group of slower cars along the inside line, to take the lead in turn two on lap 15.

By lap 18, Arenz had built up a huge half-lap lead over Schmidt before the lone caution of the race was displayed on lap 19 when 2008 MSA champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett stalled along the front stretch.

Following the restart, it was all Arenz also he cruised away from Schmidt en route to his second victory of the 2021 MSA season and 13th overall MSA main event triumph.

Schmidt, who has two MSA A-main victories to his credit so far in 2021, had to settle for second, third starter Justin Miller of Plymouth came home third, Haddy wound up fourth and fourth starter Bill Taylor of Boltonville rounded out the top five.

Heat race victories went to Travis Arenz, five-time MSA champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee and Justin Erickson of Plymouth. Tyler Davis of South Milwaukee was victorious in the 15-lap MSA B Main.

The Akright Auto Parts of Sheboygan Falls Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car Series returns to action on Saturday, May 8 at The Plymouth Dirt Track The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

Hot laps are scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. with racing to commence at 5 p.m.

The next Akright Auto Parts of Sheboygan Falls MSA traveling race is set for Sunday, May 23 at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis., which will hold its grand re-opening on that night after being closed throughout the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meseraull Wins Twice on His Birthday;

Roberts, Fincher and Headley Jr. Also Take Checkereds

As Gas City I-69 Speedway Kicks Off Its 2021 Season

GAS CITY, Ind., May 8 – Thomas Meseraull of Waveland, Ind., celebrated his 40th birthday in victory lane following both the 25-lap non-wing sprint car feature and the 20-lap USAC Midget Cup series feature Friday night as Gas City I-69 Speedway opened its 2021 season.

Following a bizarre lap 19, Bub Roberts of Warren, Ind., got the lead for the second time on the 20th and final lap to win the modified feature. Mike Fincher of Rochester, Ind., had a bit more padding, as he led the final two laps to win the 15-lap street stock feature. A familiar name was in victory lane following the 15-lap hornet feature, as James Headley Jr. of Wabash, Ind., won that main event after a spirited battle with Nick Edwards of Marion, Ind., who was making his first start in the No. 02.

Scotty Weir of Marion, Ind., got the best of polesitter Clinton Boyles of Brownsburg, Ind. at the start of the sprint feature before Boyles flipped the famous Paul Hazen No. 57 in Turn 4 before one lap of the sprint feature was in the books. Luckily the rest of the field missed him and the former track champion crawled out unhurt.

Weir led the first seven laps, holding off Ricky Lewis of Ventura, Calif. first, then Zack Pretorius of Yorktown, Ind., and finally Meseraull, who passed Pretorius for second on lap six. Meseraull charged to the outside of Weir in Turn 4 working lap eight and led the rest of the way. His rivals had another chance on a restart following a red for Harley Burns of Brazil, Ind., who flipped between Turns 3 and 4 with nine laps down. Luckily he was unhurt too.

Jason McDougal of Turtletown, Okla., who originally lined up beside Meseraull in row three in the 24-car field in the Michael Dutcher Motorsports No.17GP, passed Weir on lap 16 and went on to finish second, 3.263 seconds after Meseraull took the checkered. Meseraull also set the fastest lap of the race on lap 11 with a time of 12.168 seconds for the quarter-mile dirt oval. He was in the Don Whitney Racing No. 00 Hawk/Stensland, which advertises Stensland Racing Engines and Shop.TMez.myshopify.com.

Weir held on for third followed by Shane Cottle of Kansas, Ill. Garrett Aitken of Paris, Ill., started 24th and last but finished fifth.

The USAC Midget Cup feature, which was for open midgets, SpeeD2 midgets and 1,000cc mini-sprints, had a flip before one lap was in the books just like the sprint car feature did. This time it was Greg Mitchell of Washington, W.Va., who caught a tractor tire on the inside of Turn 4 near the frontstretch and flipped, but emerged under his own power.

Young Emerson Axsom of Franklin, Ind., led from lap one through lap 14, when Adam Taylor of DeMotte, Ind. flipped in Turn 2 while running tenth. Meseraull, who had started 16th after qualifying by winning the B-main, passed Axsom for the lead on the outside of Turn 4 on lap 15 after the restart and never looked back. His margin of victory over Axsom was 1.633 seconds with the RMS Racing/EnviroFab/Guess Performance Parts Spike/Speedway Toyota No. 7X.

Cottle, who like Meseraull was driving in both the sprint and midget divisions, finished third. Jarett Andretti of Indianapolis finished fourth and Chett Gehrke of Bardtown, Ky., rounded out the top five.

Roberts led the first 14 laps of the 20-lap modified feature before Todd Sherman of Churubusco, Ind., got around him using the outside groove. Dylan Woodling of Warsaw, Ind., passed Roberts for second on lap 16.

With just one lap to go, however, there was contact between Woodling and Sherman in Turn 4 which caused Sherman to spin and Woodling to flip on the frontstretch, collecting Nick Richards too. All were uninjured.

That accident put Roberts at the head of the field for the one-lap shootout, and he went on to win. Garrett Rons of Livonia, Mich., finished second followed by Tim Monroe of Elmwood, Ill.; Tony Anderson of Lima, Ohio, and Cole Sink of Fort Wayne, Ind. Sherman had to go to the back of the field for the restart but he still finished seventh, right behind Bill Griffith of Van Buren, Ohio.

Fincher chased Gerald Mullenix of Marion, Ind., for 13 laps of the 15-lap street stock feature before he made the winning move under him on the frontstretch. Dalton Bishop of Gas City finished third followed by his father, Andy, also of Gas City, and Jason Fritz of Winamac, Ind. Fincher’s winning No. 79, a Venom chassis, is sponsored by S&S Bait and Tackle, Bontrager Overhead Door and Paul Family Enterprises.

Headley Jr. started fifth in the 15-lap hornet feature and had to pass Edwards twice before he could take the checkered flag. Edwards pulled into the infield at the end with mechanical difficulties and Brandon Lines of Marion, Ind., emerged with the runner-up honors. Polesitter Greg Marlow of Greentown, Ind., was third followed by Josh Edwards and the Silver Bullet, Eric Solms of Fairmount, Ind.

Headley Jr.’s No. 00 is sponsored by Dudding’s Heating and Cooling, Garriott Electric, Edwards Automotive and TJR Trucking, among other companies.

In preliminary action Carl Peterson of Waterford, Wis., flipped in Turn 4 with two laps down in the third midget heat. Joe Wiggins of Jonesboro, Ind., was transported to a local hospital with unknown injuries after a crash with Maygin Collis of Greenfield, Ind., in Turn 2 with five laps down in the first street stock heat.

The event was delayed about 90 minutes due to rain.

The track’s next show is “Who’s the Boss?” this coming Friday night, May 14. It will feature the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) non-wing sprint cars. The winner of that feature will take home $2,000, and even last place will pay $300 to start. The ground-pounding modifieds will also be in action, as will the exciting street stock and hornet divisions.

Other big shows coming up this month at Gas City include the Flo Racing All Star Circuit of Champions winged sprint cars and TQ midgets on Saturday night, May 22, and a Memorial Day Tribute on Friday, May 28. The latter will showcase non-wing sprint cars, modifieds, street stocks and hornets.

The complete schedule for 2021 and more information is on the track’s website at GasCityI69Speedway.com. Fans and competitors can also follow it on Twitter: @GasCitySpeedway; Instagram: @GasCitySpeedway and Facebook: GasCitySpeedwayOnTheGas.

Grube Grabs Wild One At Port

After an incredible three-car, 12-lap battle, Dave Grube II of York Springs held on for the win Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, taking the PA Sprint Series 20-lap feature by 0.970 seconds over last week’s winner, Ken Duke Jr. of Selinsgrove, with Kenny Heffner of Watsontown taking a career-best third, just 0.179 seconds behind Duke.

Grube started on the pole and led the entire 20 laps, but his Spearhead Rentals/MAN Contracting/Zeigler’s Service Center #3D never shed its multiple-car competition, which also included Kassidy Kreitz and Justin Mills early in the race. It was when Kreitz suddenly slowed and dropped out on lap 8 that the stage was set for the lengthy final fight.

On that restart, Heffner grabbed second from Duke, but six laps later the 2019 IMCA/RaceSaver National Champion retook the spot in his Fairfield Auto Group/Apache Tree Service/Bud Godek Auto Body #67. Two laps later Heffner was back in second, and on the next lap he went for the lead, with his Morgan Paving/Maloney Builders/Coyle’s Lawn Maintenance #97 and Grube’s #3D making contact on the backstretch.

That allowed Duke back into second, but even with lapped traffic becoming a factor, Grube was able to hold on for his sixth career PASS win and second at the Port, where he won his first PASS feature in 2017.

“This team needed a win,” Grube said in victory lane. “It’s been a couple of years since we’ve been in victory lane – and a long time here. We’ve been really fast lately, and we’re really dedicated to running for points here.

“I’ve got to thank Mike Balser, Mike Stauffer and my Mom and Dad for supporting me.”

Grube apologized for the contact with Heffner, explain that he was trying to hold his line at the bottom in a car that was set up to run at the top of the track.

Devin Adams of Lebanon made a late charge to take fourth and might well have been a factor in a 25-lap race. Mills was near the leaders all race and came home fifth.

Completing the top 10 were Garrett Bard, Drew Young, Erin Statler, Austin Reed and Dakota Schweikart. Bard’s strong run from 17th starting position earned him the Penns Valley Meat Market Hard Charger Award and a similar award from the evening’s sponsor LandPro Equipment of Mifflintown.

Schweikart and 14th-finishing Bob Garvey each advanced nine positions on a night when PASS racers found the Port Royal surface racy even after 410 sprint and super late model features.

With another big field of IMCA/RaceSaver sprinters on hand – 44 – qualifying events were fiercely competitive. Drew Young, Reed, Mills and Grube took the heat wins. The battle between young Mills and veteran Roger Irvine in the third heat was a particular crowd-pleaser, as was Dustin Young’s pass for the final transfer spot at the finish line of heat four.

Doug Dodson won the 21-car B-Main, which had the evening’s most serious contact, when Fred Arnold’s #88 lost steering and hit the inside front stretch well after contact from Nick Sweigart.

This week’s PASS action returns to Selinsgrove Speedway, where the RaceSaver sprinters join the Patriot 360 sprint tour and the roadrunner stocks for Saturday night action starting at 7:00 p.m.

HAFERTEPE HAMMERS ALL STARS AT TRI-CITY RACEWAY PARK;
RUHLMAN RUSH SPRINT STAR

(Franklin, PA May 2, 2021): Sam Hafertepe, Jr. scored his first win with the Flo Racing All Stars Circuit of Champions in thirteen years of competition with the series. The All Stars program was presented courtesy of Krill Recycling LLC of Fennelton, PA.

Taking the Gary Glass Automotive/Washington House RUSH Sprint Car feature was Chad Ruhlman aboard the Tim Engels machine from Franklin, PA.

"Running out front was the place to be," Hafertepe said. He explained that track position gave him better opportunities to navigate around some difficult track conditions.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. and Ian Madsen led the All Star field to the green flag. Row two belonged to Tyler Courtney and Matt Farnham. Starting in the third row were Cap Henry and Bill Balog and they were followed by Hunter Schuerenberg and Justin Peck. Cale Conley and Sye Lynch started in row five with Carl Bowser and Kyle Reinhardt in row six.

Hafertepe bolted into the lead followed by Courtney, Madsen, Farnham and Peck. Before the racers could settle in, however, Reinhardt flipped his machine in between turns one and two. He was not hurt, but neither he nor track favorite Jack Sodeman, Jr. were able to continue.

Hafertepe assumed the lead again with Madsen, Farnham, and Henry in tow. Peck was applying the pressure and he began his move to the front. He reached fourth by lap four and third by lap five.

A caution for the lazy spin by Lynch in turn four bunched the field up and gave Peck an opportunity to challenge the leaders. He was hounding Courtney while Hafertepe ran out front by himself. Peck moved into second on lap seventeen before the pace was slowed due to Cory Eliason stopping in turn two.

On the ensuing restart, Peck made a bold move in turn one, but he snagged a rut and flipped his machine ending an impressive run up from the eighth starting spot.

Hafertepe completed the remaining eight laps without further ado. Courtney posted his best All Stars finish to date, second. Madsen crossed in third and gained enough points to take command of the All Stars series championship. Balog and Henry were fourth and fifth. Schuerenberg was sixth followed by Conley, Paul McMahan, Paige Polyak and Wise.

McMahan was the All Stars Hard Charger with thirteen positions advanced. Brandon Matus took the Fisher and Father NAPA Auto Parts Pro Performer Hard Charger award at plus five.

Bill Balog, Matt Farnham, Hunter Schuerenberg, and Cap Henry were victorious in the heat races for the All Stars. Bob Felmlee nailed the second turn wall in his heat race, inflicting major damage on the car. Felmlee was unhurt. Sye Lynch spun while reacing second in his heat, but he was able to restart and made the transfer to the A Main.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. and Ian Madsen captured the twin Dashes for the All Stars.

The B Main winner was Paul McMahan. Dan Shetler was unhurt in his crash in turn one during the B Main.

The evening's fastest qualifier overall was Justin Peck, with a lap of 14.998 in Group C. It was a new track record. He was the only driver to crack the 15 second mark. Tyler Courtney was the fastest in Group A, Ian Madsen in Group B, and Sye Lynch in Group D.

Teenager Nolan Groves and Brian Hartzell paced the Gary Glass Automotive and Washington House RUSH Sprint Car feature. Gale Ruth, Jr. and Chad Ruhlman were in the second row with Tyler Newhart and Rod George in the third row.

Ruhlman and Hartzell battled for the early lead with Ruth and George in hot pursuit. Ruth was the man to watch, going from third to first on lap four. However, Ruth was crowded and got into the outside wall, bending two wheels. He limped off the track after leading just one lap.

Ruhlman and Hartzell resumed the battle for the lead, but soon a new challenger appeared. Rod George showed everyone that he still remembered the fastest way around the big half mile. He took second on lap nine and chased down Ruhlman.

Ruhlman and George went back and fourth for several laps before Ruhlman seized control again. Soon thereafter, George's car began to sputter and he had to retire from the race with nineteen laps down. However, while he and Ruhlman were entertaining the fans, Brad Church, Arnie Kent, and Newhart were fighting for third.

George's misfortune set up a green checkered finish. Ruhlman completed the final lap, with Hartzell in second. Church, Kent, and Blaze Myers completed the top five. Newhart, Ricky Tucker, A.J. MacQuarrie, George, and Steve Pedley rounded out the top ten.

In the Rush Sprint Car heat races, Nolan Groves and Rod George captured the wins. Donovan and Bauer Auto Group of Titusville presented the heat races. There was no B Main.

Remember that there will be no racing at Tri-City Raceway Park on May 9 in observance of Mother's Day. Action will resume on May 16, with a Sunday Thunder program featuring the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars, the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, and the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. May 16 will also be Military Night with all veterans and current members of the armed forces admitted free of charge with proper identification. May 23 will be a special program for the ULMS Late Model Series and the 305 Sprint Cars. The 305 Sprints will have double features. The month of May will conclude on May 30 with another Sunday Thunder racing event.

Flo Racing All Stars (25 laps): Sam Hafertepe, Jr., Tyler Courtney, Ian Madsen, Bill Balog, Cap Henry, Hunter Schuerenberg, Cale Conley, Paul McMahan, Paige Polyak, Zeb Wise, Sye Lynch, Brandon Spithaler, Carl Bowser, T.J.

PIRTEK Renegades of the UMSS traditional sprints

New Richmond, WI, May 1, 2012 by: Terry Lehnertz

Summer arrived like a freight train on Saturday for the PIRTEK Renegades of the UMSS traditional sprints. With temperatures in the 80s, 18 Renegades checked in for the fourth event of the season at the famed Cedar Lake Speedway – as part of the Bob Cook Memorial, in honor the late Hall-of-Famer and track co-founder who originally carved the legendary three-eighths mile circuit out of the Wisconsin prairie 65 years ago.

A pair of quickly run qualifiers saw Cam Schafer prolong his perfect season, Schafer has finished first in every heat and feature race in which he has competed in 2021. Harry Hanson picked up the win in the second heat race from his second row starting spot.

Hanson amassed the most passing points in the heat races, but Mike Mueller snagged the pole in the Renegades redraw, putting the #87 on the front row inside of Scott Brandt for the main event. At the drop of the green the field dove headlong into turn one, with Mueller emerging at the point down the back chute. Early on, Mueller showed the way in his customary low groove followed by Brandt, Hanson, Schafer and Jake Kouba. The racing surface proved quite dynamic as Schafer and Hanson were the only drivers in the lead pack running the high groove and, at least initially, the pair appeared to fade a bit. But within a handful of laps, the throttle stomping strategy paid dividends for Schafer as he charged from fifth first.

With ten laps remaining, the speed had moved back down to the lower groove and the tandem of Mueller and Kouba was back to within striking distance of Schafer. Kouba squeezed by Mueller with eight to go, and Schafer had moved down to the tires to fend off his challengers. Inside of five to go, as Schafer negotiated traffic, his #54 mount was pressed higher than he hoped for, and that created an opening large enough for Kouba and Mueller to scoot by. Furious challenges by both Mueller and Schafer proved unfruitful as Jake Kouba collected his first sticker of the ’21 season ahead of Mueller, Schafer, Bryan Roach, and Hanson.

Elsewhere in Renegade action, Joel Larson took home the win in the season opener for the Western Renegades at Devils Lake Speedway in Crary, ND. The PIRTEK wing and non-wing groups return to action on Friday, May 7, in Jim Falls, WI at the Eagle Valley Raceway, and the Chequamegon Renegades will open their season the following night, joining the PIRTEK sprints at Cedar Lake. That same night, May 8, the Western Renegades return to Devils Lake for their second race of the season.

 

 

Justin Sanders wins crowd pleasing David Tarter Memorial at Silver Dollar Speedway

By Gary Thomas

Chico, CA – May 1, 2021…The Sprint Car Challenge Tour debut at Silver Dollar Speedway certainly did not disappoint on Saturday as Justin Sanders, Dominic Scelzi and a host of others kept the crowd on the edge of their seats all race long.

When all was said and done however, it was Sanders coming out on top of the 61-car field to score his 10th victory of the season and third of his career with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards. His triumph at the eighth David Tarter Memorial came aboard the potent Dale Miller Septic/ Thompson’s Auto No. 4SA.

The final act of the ultra-entertaining show happened to be a green, white, checkered restart where Scelzi held the lead. Going into turn one though Sanders got a great run and slid the Fresno driver for the top-spot, grabbing the lead heading down the back stretch. Scelzi stayed right there and took a couple looks, but Sanders held off the challenges and crossed under the checkered flag for the $3,500 grand prize.

“I really don’t know what to say about that one, but I am absolutely pumped to add the David Tarter Memorial to my resume,” said an exuberant Sanders to Troy Hennig in victory lane. “I knew if I could get a good restart I had a shot to make something happen with Dominic. Going into turn one I had that opportunity and luckily it worked out and we are standing up here. I have to thank Dale Miller for giving me great cars to drive and all the partners that help out with this team.

Scelzi came home second and must be commended for a fantastic run that started from the 15th position on the grid. It capped off a great weekend for the driver of the Scelzi Ent. No. 41, as he also captured Friday’s Bill Brownell Memorial in Chico. An impressive drive was also put in by Templeton’s Kaleb Montgomery, who carved his way from 14th to a career best Sprint Car Challenge Tour finish of third by the conclusion.
All eyes in the feature at times were definitely locked into 15-year-old Clovis throttle-masher Corey Day, who impressively shot to the lead early, only to suffer a flat tire. After going to the work area Day charged all the way back through the field to finish fourth, after getting back up as high as third. The son of Nor-Cal Sprint Car legend Ronnie Day continues to impress in the Golden State.

Despite several movers and shakers in the main event, it was Redding’s Chase Majdic who earned the Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Award with a breathtaking drive from 19th to fifth.

Completing the top-10 at the David Tarter Memorial were Blake Carrick, Robbie Price, Sean Becker, Ryan Robinson and 22nd starter Colton Heath. The B-main was captured by Chase Majdic, while the twin C-mains went to Colby Copeland and Shane Hopkins.

The two High Sierra Industries Dashes were claimed by Justin Sanders and Justyn Cox. Six heat races were held during the evening and were snagged by Max Mittry, Robbie Price, Justin Sanders, Shane Golobic, Tanner Carrick and Isaiah Vasquez. Ryan Robinson began the night by earning the $600 Bianchi Farms/ Kyle Larson Racing Fast Time Award. Robinson toured the quarter-mile in 12.575 seconds to top the 61-car field.

Ryan Winter, Ben Wiesz, Nick Velasquez and Mike Grenert completed the top-five.

MARTIN TAKES 2nd SPRINT WIN; MARKHAM RECORDS 70th WIN AT WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY; MOORE & RUTT TAKE CHECKER FLAGS; JAMES SCORES 2nd WIN IN A ROW

​Orrville, Ohio

​Saturday, May 1, 2021

​By Mike Swanger

​ The racing action returned to Wayne County Speedway with a Fast Five show Saturday night with the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Model feature hitting the track first with Corey Conley and Ryan Markham bringing the field to the green flag with Conley getting the early lead with Markham on his tail as Mitch Caskey and Nathon Loney right behind. The foursome would be bunched together as Caskey would edge into second on lap four but Markham regained the spot on the next circuit. Loney would take third from Caskey on lap 6. Markham would start to put the pressure on Conley and coming out of turn two on lap 8, Markham slipped past for the lead. Loney would move in on Conley at the same time and took over second on lap 10 but his car would start smoking and pulled off on the next lap. Caskey motored into second on lap 11 and as he was challenging Markham for the lead, would spin in turn four to bring out the caution. Then on the 18th lap, Caskey was back up to fourth but a flat tire sent him to the pits for a new tire and putting Larry Bellman and Wes Morrison third and fourth. In the closing laps, Markham would hold off Conley with five to go as Caskey came flying back up and regained second from Conley with three to go and as the checkered flag waved, Markham crossed the line with a two car length advantage and park the Ashland based B & B Drain Service, Beer Barrel Drive Thru and Mars Trucking #5m into the Summit Racing victory circle and his 70th career win at 'Orrville's Historic Oval'. Caskey finished second with Conley, Bellman and Morrison filling out the top five. Caskey and Loney topped the heat wins as J R Gentry was the fast timer at 16.871 seconds. Gentry was to start on the pole of the feature and before the race started, the drive shaft dropped on the #14.

Nick Patterson out hustled Jordan Ryan into turn one of the Pine Tree Towing & Recovery Sprint feature as Tyler Street took second following a lap 2 restart after a spin for Trey Jacobs. A caution on lap five for R J Jacobs would line the field up again and as the green waved, Danny Mumaw, Troy Kingan and Jordan Harble got together on the front stretch that sent Kingan and Harble flipping to bring out the red flag as both drivers climbed out ok and ending their nights along with Mumaw's. With the race resuming, Patterson held the lead with Street looking for a way to get around Patterson. Making a move to the bottom of the track in turn three, Street was able to slip past Patterson for the top spot. Broc Martin moved into third at the same time as Dean Jacobs passed Ryan on the next circuit for 4th. Street began to stretch his lead to more than a half a straightawy lead and with five to go, Martin was able to get by Patterson for second. With the checkered flag getting ready to wave for Street, he got into Nate Reeser in turn four and both would come to a stop and Street would have to go on the hook and for the second time this season at WCS, Street was denied a certain victory after tangling with a lapped car. Martin would inherit the lead and hold off Dean Jacobs for the win and the Orrville driver put the Chaser's Drive Thru, Orrville Trucking and Santmyer Energy #83m into the Summit Racing victory circle for the second time this year. Dean Jacobs was second followed by Patterson, Ryan and Jamie Myers. Posting the heat wins were Street, Harble and Chris Myers as Dylan Kingan claimed the last chance race. Trey Jacobs was the quick timer at 14.815 seconds.

The CORBON Ammunition Modified main would see D J Cline use the outside front row starting position to set the pace for the first 8 circuits and as he was doing that 8th starting Kyle Moore and 10th starting Nathon Loney was on the move to the front. Moore took second on lap four and closed in on Cline as Scott Peltz ran third in front of Loney. Moore was looking for an opening to get past Cline and as they went down the backstretch, Moore went low going into turn three and the Mansfield driver was able to slide up in front of Cline to take the lead as Loney had closed in on the two front runners. As the threesome battled in turn four Loney would make a move to pass both Moore and Cline but Loney would spin and go to the tail. On the restart, Moore and his Arnold Motorsports, Kepling Floors and Moore Brothers Racing #1* would pull away and when the checkers flew was more than a straightaway in front of the field for the win. Loney would come back to take second with Cline third and Austin Seelig and Richard Grogg rounded out the top five. Moore and Mark Gardiner collected the heat wins.

​The McKenzie Concrete Super Stock feature was one that the saying 'cautions cause cautions' was true, the field was always bunched together. Matt Shroyer would grab the lead ​the drop of the green and set the pace for the first ten laps with Took Wiles and Don Rutt in pursuit early in the race and Brandon Morrow joining the chase in the last five laps. After a lap 10 caution, Wiles would edge past Shroyer on the double file restart and lead the next two laps with Rutt taking second the next time around. With another yellow waving on lap 13, it was Wiles and Rutt side by side and as the field was bunched together and everyone wanting the win, Wiles got bumped fron behind as he was leading and slid off the back stretch and went on back to the pits from there as Rutt was now the leader and the Wooster driver would keep Morrow at bay and win his first points feature aboard the D L Rutt Builders, Suttle Specialties and Precision Graphics #910. Rutt has won two other feature and both were non points races. Morrow would finish second with Shroyer third. Codee Schneider had a career best fourth place finish with Kyle Moore in fifth. Heat winners were Paul Holmes and Took Wiles.

Loudonville's Jordan James made it two wins in a row in the JOYRIDE Transport Mini Stock feature as he started on the outside front row and never looked back as he lead all the way aboard the Brad's Auto Body, Lorentz Lawn Care and Lochevale Farms #83. The only thing that slowed James up was a red flag when Steven Lester flipped in turn one on the second lap, Kyle Petit would take second on lap four to finish in the runner up spot as Stephen Crowe outraced Mitch Reichard for third and Zach Hershey rang up a fifth place finish Dustin Bedlion and Travis Hutton topped the heat races.

Winning the Rich's Tire and Service Hard Chargers were Ryan Abel in the Late Models, Jason Dolick in the Sprints, Austin Seelig in the Modifieds, Brandon Morrow in the Super Stocks and Stephen Crowe in the Mini Stocks.

Next Saturday night, May 8, Wayne County Speedway will host the Wayne County Truck and Tractor Pull with the Tractors starting pulling at 10 am and the trucks at 7 pm.

The next racing at WCS will be on Saturday, May 15 with another Fast Five program.

Schmidt, Ritchie, Kulow, Odekirk shine in PDTR opener

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) May 1, 2021 – With unseasonably balmy temperatures greeting a strong contingent of racing-hungry fans and competitors, Plymouth Dirt Track Racing kicked off its 17th season of sanctioning weekly racing action at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, May 1.

In A-main competition, 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove held off the hard-charging duo of Travis Arenz of Sheboygan and two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh, while skillfully working through heavy lapped traffic in the closing laps to capture the 25-lap 360 Kristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty Sprint Car headliner.

Justin Richie of New London led flag-to-flag en route to victory in the 25-lap Sheboygan’s Country B93.7 Late Model main event, while Donny Kulow of Elkhart Lake endured six caution flags to claim the A-main win the 25-lap Oostburg Automotive Grand National main event and Kyle Odekirk of Plymouth captured the caution-filled, time-shortened 17-lap PDTR Cellcom B Mod A main.

Ben Schmidt seized the lap on the drop of the green flag of the 25-lap 360 Sprint Car A main from the pole before 2018 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Justin Miller of Plymouth, who started second, used the high groove to power into the lead on lap 2.

Two laps later, Schmidt rebounded to regain the top spot with a nifty low move in turn two. On lap 6, Schmidt caught the back of the field and was poised to negotiate heavy lapped traffic when the lone caution flag of the race appeared on lap 8 after Blake Wondra of Fond du Lac spun in turn two.

On the restart, Schmidt powered away from Miller and eighth starter Travis Arenz, who had worked his way into third. On lap 10, Arenz pulled off a slide job on the dry slick track surface to secure the runner-up spot.

Three laps later, Schmidt hit slower traffic, which allowed Arenz and 10th starter Brandon McMullen, who had worked his way up to third, to close rapidly on the leader.

Dense lapped traffic proved to be challenging for the leaders over the second half of the race as Schmidt, Arenz and McMullen ran diced their way skillfully through the rear of the field in close quarters.

On lap 20, Arenz dove low in turn three to pull even with Schmidt for the top spot, however, the 21-year veteran refused to be denied as he fended off Arenz, while weaving his way through lapped cars over the final five laps en route to his 11th career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A main victory and 28th career Midwest Sprint Car Association main event triumph.

Arenz had to settle for second, McMullen finished a close third, Miller placed fourth and Waupun’s Will Gerrits, worked his way up from the 13th starting spot, to place fifth.

After a complete restart following a spin involving Turk Letizia of Milwaukee and Sawyer Specht of Sheboygan Falls on the initial start, Justin Ritchie led the 17-car Late Model A-main field to the green flag from the pole and quickly outpowered outside front row starter Dan Schlieper of Milwaukee, who was in the seat of the late Jim Letizia’s D7 car, to take the lead in turn one of the opening lap.

Ritchie wasted little time in building up a solid cushion over third starter Taylor Scheffler of Waukesha on lap 2. Two laps later, Charlie Schmidt of Cedar Grove, who started fifth, flexed his muscle by bolting past Scheffler to seize second in turn two.

On lap 5, the second and final caution flag appeared for Jacob Van Engen of Howards Grove, who spun in turn two. After the restart, Ritchie built up a big lead over Schmidt in the final 20 laps and never looked back en route to his third career PDTR Late Model A-main victory by a half-lap margin.

Schmidt finished a strong second, Scheffler placed third, four-time PDTR Late Model champion Brad Mueller of Random Lake finished fourth after starting eighth and three-time defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland, who started sixth, rounded out the top five.

After a caution on the opening lap of the 25-lap Grand National A main for Dave Holm of Chilton and Jeff Muehlbauer of Elkhart Lake, Donny Kulow, who started on the pole and 82-year-old Dick Hed of Plymouth, who started second, dueled side by side over the first two laps before Kulow surged ahead along the low groove on lap 3.

On lap 5, fourth starter J.J. Pagel of Mount Calvary in the Bender Racing No. 89 entry worked past Hed to take second before the second caution flag appeared for a spin involving Maverick Ruh of Sheboygan Falls.

After another caution was displayed on lap 7 for a spin involving Derek Kaat of Plymouth, Pagel and Hed waged a heated battle for second before Pagel gained the spot and moved in two pressure Kulow for the lead on lap 10.

The fourth yellow came out on lap 13 when Derek Kaat spun along the frontstretch. When the race resume, Pagel and Hed continued their battle for second with Pagel again surging ahead on lap 17.

Three laps later, 2019 PDTR Grand National champion Tyler Kulow of Plymouth spun in turn four after contact with Hed, who was sent to the rear of field for the altercation.

Following the restart, seventh starter Luke Scholten of Oostburg charged in along the outside groove to pressure Pagel for second before the sixth and final caution was displayed on lap 23 when Jacob Muehlbauer of Elkhart Lake made contact with the frontstretch wall.

When the race resumed, Kulow maintained the top spot by holding firm to the low line on the way to his second career PDTR Grand National A-main victory.

Pagel finished second, Jeff Muehlbauer recovered from an opening lap spin to finish third, Scholten placed fourth and two-time PDTR Grand National champion Don Sorce Jr. of West Allis placed fifth after starting ninth.

After a five-car incident brought out the first of six caution flags on the opening lap, polesitter Kyle Odekirk raced into the lead on the drop of the green flag with second starter Shane Long of Sheboygan Falls and Jesse Cullen of Chilton, who started sixth, in tow.

The second yellow flag appeared on lap 3 when Patrick Hanson of Sheboygan Falls stalled near the turn three pit exit. On the restart, fifth starter Trevor Frank of Sheboygan began to make his presence felt as he slipped into third place. On lap 9, Cullen worked his way into second with a strong move along the cushion before back-to-back cautions for debris and a three-car incident in turn two on lap 11 slowed the pace again.

On the restart, Cullen and Frank waged an epic duel for second with Frank running low and Cullen sticking to the high line. The fifth caution appeared on lap 14 as the race neared the 25-minute time limit. On what proved to the final restart, Kulow again held is own by staying smooth down low, while Cullen fended off Frank for second before the race ended on lap 17 when the sixth yellow flag was displayed for a spin involving Rick Kretschmann of Sheboygan Falls in turn one.

Odekirk, who owns a pair of PDTR Late Model victories, earned his first career PDTR B Mod A-main win with Cullen placing second, Frank taking third, Shane Long finishing fourth and Spencer Long of Sheboygan Falls, who started 17th, placing fifth.

Brandon Berth of Cascade was victorious in the 15-lap 360 Sprint Car B Main and Spencer Long won the 12-lap B Mod B Main.

The season-opening PDTR racing program of the 2021 season, which was sponsored by Mayer Automotive, drew a total of 87 cars, including 31 360 Sprint Cars, 17 Late Models, 15 Grand Nationals and 24 B Mods.

Return of the Fans a Monster Success at Skagit Speedway

5/1/21

Alger, WA – May Day 2021 will be forever remembered at Skagit Speedway as the return of the fans to the stands after Covid-19 forced racing without a crowd in 2020. Operating at 25% capacity, the rowdy crowd enjoyed a great night of racing with Eric Fisher, Justin Youngquist, Garrett Thomas and Howard Vos scoring opening night wins.

The Budweiser 360 Sprints saw Eric Fisher make yet another appearance in the Sage Fruit Victory Lane on opening night. Fisher took the race lead from Jesse Schlotfeldt, and at times it looked like he had built an insurmountable advantage. A late caution with just a handful of laps remaining brought the field back together, and Schlotfeldt made a late run at Fisher, using the middle of the track in turns one and to keep Eric close, but not enough to make the big move to retake the lead. In the end, it was Fisher winning ahead of Schlotfeldt and Jason Solwold. Corby Fauver set fast time, with heat wins going to Schlotfeldt and Lance Sargent.

Justin Youngquist debuted the Dynes Racing sprint car in Sage Fruit Victory Lane with the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints. After winning his heat race, Youngquist started from the pole and led all twenty five laps, turning away a strong charge from Kelsey Carpenter over the final five laps to secure the win. Carpenter had to rally from the back of the field to take second after an opening lap wreck. Cory Swatzina overcame mechanical issues in his heat race to finish third. Carpenter was quick time. Bill Rude joined Youngquist as a heat race winner.

The race out front in the NW Focus Midget main event was dynamite on Saturday night. Garrett Thomas worked hard to sneak the lead away from Travis Jacobson on lap 15, bringing Jared Peterson with him as they rolled the low groove into the top two spots. Peterson dogged Thomas lap after lap, getting underneath to take the lead from a brief second as the pair crossed to complete lap 23, but Thomas was not to be denied, making a strong move to repass Jared and jumping back into the top spot, and then Sage Fruit Victory Lane 2 laps later. The top three ended up Thomas, Peterson and Nick Evans. The three heat wins went to Jacobson, Thomas and Jamee Gardner.

In the Outlaw Tuner class, Howard Vos came out on top of a spirited battle for the win. Vos took the lead from Colin Sims on lap six to secure the win ahead of Jeremy Swann and Jon Gunderson. Vos and Gunderson won the heats.

Wyatt Burks Wins POWRi WAR
I-70 Innovational Championship Night

Belleville, IL. (05/01/2021) Championship Night for the I-70 Motorsports Park Grand Re-Opening and the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League would not disappoint the packed house in attendance with outstanding action all over the well-prepared speed-factory outside of Odessa, Missouri as Wyatt Burks emerged victorious in the feature finale.

Limited to the top twenty-four drivers in the POWRi WAR standings for entrants by I-70 Motorsports Park, attrition would come into the equation as four drivers were unable to continue after the previous night’s event. With a total number of twenty entries, POWRi WAR racing would require three heats to help set the feature field based on the POWRi passing points system with Wesley Smith, Cody Baker, and Joe B. Miller winning the early on-track battles.

Pacing the field for the feature race would see high-point qualifier Wesley Smith and outside front-row starter Wyatt Burks run side-by-side for the top spot as Smith was able to pull away with the early race lead. Burks would battle back to take the lead from Smith.
Zach Daum, Cody Baker, and Jack Wagner would try to run down the top-two speedsters as the feature was without caution going green to the checkered flag. With Wyatt Burks leading the pack of POWRi WAR drivers, Baker and Wagner would charge to the top of the leaderboard getting around Burks only to see Wyatt claim the front back.

Late race heroics by Daum would propel him into the second-place finishing position as Baker and Wager were waging their own battle within the top five. In the closing laps, Baker would squeeze by Wagner and Smith to grab the third spot with Wagner racing his way to fourth and Smith rounding out the action-packed feature’s top-five finishers.

Hoosier Racing Tire Top Hot Lap Time: 6 – Mario Clouser (17.107)
Advanced Racing Suspensions Heat 1 Winner: 44 – Wesley Smith
MVT Services Heat 2 Winner: 9 – Cody Baker
Auto Meter Heat 3 Winner: 31 – Joe B. Miller
Max Papis Innovations High Point Qualifier: 44 – Wesley Smith

Foos takes a liking to Fremont; Stroup comes on strong late for 305 win; Valenti, McCaughey split truck wins

Saturday, May 1, 2021

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – DJ Foos and his Burmeister Racing Team just seem to know what adjustments to make when Fremont Speedway slicks off. The Fremont, Ohio driver took the lead of the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 sprint feature on lap six and drove to the victory on Custom Metal Works Night.

Foos, who also owns a win in 2021 at Attica Raceway Park, also takes the early lead in the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group. Foos, the 2019 AFCS champion, had to hold off several challenges from Fremont’s 2020 track champion Nate Dussel for his 18th career win at “The Track That Action Built.”

“I’m just so blessed to have this opportunity to drive for this team. The Burmeisters and Mike Sommers and all the guys work so hard on this thing. I thought I was too good too early but when the track slicks off like this we shine. I tried changing lanes a few times and it paid off,” said Foos beside his Crown Battery, CR Juices, All in Tent Rentals, Dave Story Equipment, Burmeister Trophy, Sonny’s Signs, Vantage Branding, The Jet Express, Berryman Racing Shocks, Kistler Engines, Kistler Racing Products backed machine.

Fremont, Ohio’s Dustin Stroup came alive with just five laps to go in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature and drove to his third career win at the track.

“I’m not really sure what happened but this thing just took off with about eight laps to go. I knew we were good because we had some good runs on guys coming off of two. I can’t thank everyone enough…this thing just ran phenomenal tonight,” said Stroup beside his Automatic Fire Protection; MLP Lawn care & Snow Removal; Vantage Branding; Level Performance; Advance Auto Parts backed #10x.

Fostoria, Ohio’s Shawn Valenti took the lead in the 20 lap Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck A-main on lap five and pulled away for his 62nd career Fremont Speedway win. He is now tied with hall-of-famer Gug Keegan for second on the track’s all-time win list behind Art Ball.

“I’m thankful to be back up here. It’s amazing to be up there with those names. Hopefully we can have a good season and add a few to it. The track dried out a little bit…we were too tight in that first feature and made some adjustments to it and got it dialed in. I found the bottom in the sprint car feature and it helped. I have to thank the Babcocks for everything they do. I have to thank A Plus Auto Center, Roelle Fabrication, Craig Miller Trucking, Speedways Bar and Grill, Best Performance Motorsports, KS Sales & Service, Gressman Powersports and Dave Story Equipment backed truck.

Toledo, Ohio’s Cory McCaughey dominated the dirt truck feature earlier in the night, which was a make-up from last week’s rained out affair. It was McCaughey’s sixth career Fremont win.

“That’s a bad truck right there. Whatever Mark (Kachenmeister) is doing…just keep rubbing that voodoo in this thing and I’ll just keep wheeling this thing,” said McCaughey of his KC Engineering, DDH Farms, Ron Miller Race Cars, DAS Machining, BRJ Construction, Dirt Roudy’s sponsored #911.

Craig Mintz and Travis Philo brought the field to green for the 410 A-main with Mintz grabbing the lead over Foos, Philo, Chris Andrews, Dussel and Ryan Broughton. Dussel quickly moved into third on lap three with Foos battling side by side with Mintz for the lead before edging ahead on lap six. Foos was able to pull away slightly while Mintz battled with Dussel and Philo for the runner-up spot.

Dussel took second on lap 10 just before a caution flew. When the green reappeared Dussel applied heavy pressure to Foos for the lead but once things got going Foos pulled away ever so slightly with Philo taking third on lap 15. The car on the move was 12th starting Cole Macedo who moved into fifth at the halfway point.

Heavy lapped traffic came into play with 10 laps to go but Foos was able to move around and get by while Dussel, Philo, Mintz and Macedo gave chase. Foos was able to maintain a two car length advantage the rest of the way taking the checkers over Dussel, Philo, Macedo and Mintz.

Steve Rando jumped to the early lead of the 25-lap 305 sprint main with Matt Foos, Jamie Miller, Stroup, Zeth Sabo and Paul Weaver in pursuit. Following a caution on lap two and another on the restart, Foos pounced on the second attempt at a green, driving into the lead. A lap later and another race stoppage couldn’t slow Foos who started to pull away while Rando, Miller, Stroup, Weaver and Sabo battled hard for second.

Foos encountered lapped traffic with nine laps to go and Stroup, who had taken second a lap earlier, quickly closed. Stroup drove into the lead on lap 20 and only a caution with two laps left gave the field another chance. Stroup got an excellent restart and drove to the win over Foos, Weaver, Rando an Sabo.

In the 20 lap dirt truck feature, JT Horn and Jim Holcomb brought the field to green but it was third starter McCaughey taking the lead. Following a debris caution on lap four, McCaughey was locked in a tremendous battle with Valenti, Dan Hennig and Holcomb. Valenti took the lead on lap five just prior to a caution. On the restart Valenti immediately pulled away while Holcomb, Hennig, Brad Mitten and McCaughey battled for second.

Not ever heavy lapped traffic with six laps to go could slow Valenti who drove to the win over Holcomb, Mitten, Hennig and 18th starter Jeff Babcock.

In the make-up truck feature from the previous week, McCaughey jumped into the lead at the drop of the green and pulled way. Jamie Miller would get around Valenti late to take second with Dana Fry and Austin Black rounding out the top five.

There is no racing at Fremont Speedway on May 8 but “The Track That Action Built” gets back to the fun on Saturday, May 15 on Great Lakes Trucks Armed Forces Night with the AFCS 410 sprints battling for $4,000 to win, the AFCS 305 Sprints going for $1,200 to win and the dirt trucks back in action. The April 24 410 make-up feature will also be held.

Bud Kaeding snags second Ocean Sprints win of the year on Friday

By Gary Thomas

Watsonville, CA – April 30, 2021…Campbell’s Bud Kaeding was part of a torrid battle early and then held off relentless challenges from youngster Joey Ancona to claim his second Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo triumph of the season on Friday.

Sharing victory lane with Kaeding were Rob Gallaher in the Hobby Stocks, Nat Graham with Police N Pursuit and Tony Gullo with the Four Bangers after winner Jeff Durant was Disqualified in post-race tech.

The 30-lap Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo feature started with Dash winner Kyler Shaw jumping into the lead over 2019 track champion JJ Ringo. Bud Kaeding was a part of the mix right away as the trio raced hard and close together. A well-prepared surface lent for an entertaining main event on this night. Ringo blasted to the lead on lap-five and did a fabulous job through lapped traffic keeping the field at bay.

The final caution of the contest waved just prior to the halfway point and following that Bud Kaeding would maneuver his way to the lead, as Concord’s Joey Ancona also came to life. The 16-year-old ran the cushion to perfection, particularly in the first set of turns. With Kaeding leading he felt pressure from Ancona for several laps but used his veteran experience to get through traffic. As the laps wound down Ancona once again had a run on Kaeding and looked for an opportunity to pounce.

As the duo rounded turn four to accept the white flag Ancona got the rear end around and that was all Kaeding needed, as he charged off to accept the Ed Entz checkered flag. Atwater’s Sean Watts made a rare Ocean Sprints start and was rewarded with a runner up finish at the conclusion, ahead of Ancona who recovered following the near spin, Ringo and Gilroy’s Kurt Nelson. The remainder of the top-10 was filled out by Nick Ringo, Jerry Bonnema, Bryce Eames, Jason Chisum and Kyler Shaw.

As noted, Kyler Shaw captured the Dash while heat races went to Shaw, Bonnema and Watts. Bud Kaeding started off the night by setting fast time with a blistering lap of 11.478.

The 20-lap Hobby Stock finale was all about San Jose’s Rob Gallaher, who started up front and stretched out his lead to well over a straightaway at times. There no worries whatsoever for Gallaher who claimed his second Ocean Speedway victory of the year over father Joe Gallaher, Ryan Muller, Quintin Harris and Norm Ayers. Heat races were picked off by Joe and Rob Gallaher respectively. Qualifying was also held with fast time going to Joe Gallaher by carving his way around the quarter-mile in 17.081 seconds.

The Four Banger contest appeared to have been a dominating effort by Jeff Durant, however, in post-race tech it was deemed that his car wasn’t up to track specs. That handed the win to Tony Gullo over Kate Beardsley, Nicole Beardsley, Travis VanGilder and Bill Beardsley.

Santa Cruz, California’s Nate Graham raced to victory with Police N Pursuit during the night. His biggest worry came with a couple laps left when he executed a half spin off turn four. He collected things though and picked up the win over AJ Waltrip, Roy ller, Jackie Yeung and John Hohmann.

The exact same show returns to Ocean Speedway next Friday May 7th but the big news is that fans will return to the stands that night! Stay glued to the Ocean Speedway social media channels for the details.

 

 

Wesley Smith Captures POWRi WAR I-70 Innovational Opening Night Victory

When the final flags were shown over the freshly christened racing surface, Wesley Smith would find the fastest groove claiming his third feature win of the year.

High Point Qualifier Zach Daum would lead the pack of talented WAR drivers to the initial green flag start as Wesley Smith used the high line to gain the racing advantage on the first lap establishing himself as the early leader.

Smith would proceed to pull away from the field as the green flag racing laps started to click off. With Smith out front dealing with lap traffic, Zach Daum, Mario Clouser, Jack Wagner, and Riley Kreisel would all attempt to run down the fast Wesley.

Drivers would slice and dice for positions throughout the field as red flag conditions would appear simultaneously as the checkered flags. As Wesley Smith was crossing the finish line, third place runner Riley Kreisel would flip wildly into turn three collecting Brad Wyatt, both drivers were okay.

Welsey Smith would cross the checkers first claiming the feature win, Zach Daum would finish in the runner-up spot as Mario Clouser rounded out the features top five at I-70 Motorsports Park with the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League.

Tyler Street Claims OVSCA Sprint Car 'Vapors in the Valley' at Ohio Valley Speedway

Ohio Valley Speedway April 26, 2021

(Lubeck, WV) It was race #2 of the 2021 season at Ohio Valley Speedway on Friday Night and race fans were treated to a swelled pit area of over 150 eager racers. The Ohio Valley Management Group would welcome the OVSCA 410 Sprint Cars to the ‘Valley’ as the winged warriors would open up the 2021 OVSCA season and the running of ‘Vapors in the Valley’. A pit full of race cars in each class and another great crowd would brave another night of very chilly temperatures but were once again treated to some excellent action all night long. Picking up feature wins included Tyler Street, Tyler Carpenter, Coleman Evans, Sam Dickel, Reed Bishop, Miles Cook, Blake Tasker and Isaac McLeish.

The OVSCA Sprints would make their first of five visits to the speedway with twenty- three of the areas best, looking to kickstart the 2021 season in grand fashion. Picking up the win, rim-riding around the well-manicured ‘Valley’ surface was Tyler Street of Fredericktown, Ohio aboard the Vantage/Schaeffer’s Oil/ Berryman Racing Shocks/ Kistler Engines & Racing Products/ Triple X Race Components/ TruForm Race Products 4*machine. Following the very impressive Street was Jamie Myers, Hunter Lynch, Jordan Harble and Josh Davis.

In the Super Late Model main event it was the usual suspects at the front of the pack as early race leader Chris Carpenter would shoot out of the gate setting a torrid pace. In hot pursuit was Brother Tyler Carpenter as the ‘Kamikaze Kid’ would apply constant pressure throughout the early portion of the event. Tyler would eventually wrestle the lead away from Brother Chris and a few laps later disaster would strike for Chris as the driver of the 18 machine would see his night end with a flat tire. Tyler Carpenter would go on to claim the win over Tyler Evans, a closing Zach Hill, Ronnie Mayle and Harold Redman Jr.

Coleman Evans of Mineral Wells, WV would park his Evans Construction/ Dirt Disciples/ Lethal Chassis in the UMP Modified Victory lane. A superb performance utilizing the speedways bottom groove would allow the smooth racer to pull ahead of early race leader Booger Garnes to snare his first win at Ohio Valley Speedway this season. Following Evans across the stripe was Booger Garnes, Chad Roush, JP Roberts and Mark Dickson.

A huge field of thirty five Pike Street Lanes Sportmods would roll thru the gates Friday Night. With over thirty cars in the class, as the promoters promised double features would be ran to allow all cars to run a feature as a reward for their patronage. Picking up the wins in the Pike Street Lane Sportmod feature #1 was Reed Bishop of Bidwell, Ohio followed by Steven Dotson, Sonny Leek, Nic Green and Jacob Boyles. In feature #2 it was Wheelersburg, Ohio’s Miles Cook notching his first win of the season ahead of veteran Pat Garrett, TJ Arnold, Curt Reck and Mike Sprouse.

A great Bill’s Auto Salvage SCDRA 4 Cylinder feature would see twenty three cars vying for the guaranteed starting spot in the upcoming $2,500 to win WV State Championship event. A very entertaining race upfront between last week’s winner Justin Carpenter and visitor Brandon Gibson would set the races early tone. With Gibson dropping out of the event this set up a late race battle with Carpenter on the highside and Sam Dickel working the extreme low-side to perfection. A tremendous back and forth battle but in the end it was cagey Sam Dickel driving the S3 machine parking it in victory lane over Carpenter, Josh Ayers, Bryce Bowling and Kasey Rankin.

A strong field of twenty seven Mineral Wells Tire Center WRA Mini Wedges presented by Mike’s Auto Body would see Isaac McLeish pick up the Veteran feature over Mack Brookover and Aiden Powell.

Ken Duke Wins At Port Royal

“It seems like forever since we won a race.”

For 2019 PA Sprint Series, Port Royal Speedway, Pennsylvania and IMCA/RaceSaver National Champion Ken Duke Jr. of Selinsgrove, that was an understandable thought. After scoring eight victories in that championship season, he only visited victory lane once in 2020, on July 11 at his hometown Selinsgrove Speedway.

There were plenty of good finishes - 12 top fives - but then only the one last year and none so far in 2021.

It made Saturday night’s Port Royal win special for the veteran racer in the Fairfield Auto Group/Apache Tree Service/Bud Godek Auto Body #67, the 17th victory of his PASS career.

“We got a good pill draw tonight (starting second in the feature),” Duke said in victory lane. “The track was to our liking - they did a great job with the surface here. We got lucky, we started on the front row, that makes things so much easier.”

Duke slipped past fellow front-row starter Rowdy Heffner in the second turn of the first lap and was untouchable in clean air, but some struggling in lapped traffic opened the door for an intense battle with Kassidy Kreitz of Sinking Spring, who actually took the lead on lap 13, only to have her pass erased when the race was stopped after Dom Melair’s car briefly erupted in flames due to mechanical ills. Melair was able to exit his car uninjured, but the restart put Duke back in front, and he was never again challenged; the final margin of victory was 2.76 seconds.

“That lapped traffic back in the pack was pretty dicey,” he said. “I was a little surprised - I shouldn’t have been - about how much I was slowing down getting through lapped traffic.

“When Kassidy stuck her nose in there, she had me dead to rights, and she pulled off the pass, and we were just really lucky the red flag came out, we got back out in front in clean air, and I felt pretty good about it at that point.”

Kreitz pulled off an amazing charge early in the race on the way to her career-best finish and nearly her first feature win. She moved from her 14th starting position to fourth on the first lap and was in second just a couple of laps later. Then she caught Duke in traffic, only to be victimized by the red flag.

Dave Grube II of York Springs, who hung in the top five throughout the race, finished third, with 2020 IMCA/RaceSaver and PASS Champion Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery, who also found his way through the pack from starting 12th, coming home fourth. Austin Reed of Etters completed the top five.

The rest of the top ten included Doug Dodson, Rowdy Heffner, Mikell McGee, Nick Sweigart and Jeffrey Weaver.

The tenth-place finisher also was the evening’s Penns Valley Meat Market Hard Charger, having come from the back row, 25th starting position. He picked up $100. Penns Valley Meat Market also sponsors PASS throughout the season at Port Royal.

Kreitz’s 12-position improvement was just one of several other strong performances throughout the PASS field.

Forty-five RaceSaver sprints were on hand for the “Open Wheel Madness” program, which also featured 410 and URC 360 sprints and had a total of 103 sprint cars on hand.

The crowded field made qualifying events fiercely competitive. Dodson, Sweigart, Justin Mills and Reed won the heat races, with Mike Alleman besting an incredible 22-car field for the B-Main. Devin Adams, who missed the feature by one B-Main position received a racing tire from Miller’s Racing Products as a consolation.

PASS returns to the Port Royal “Speed Palace” again next Saturday for a program also including 410 sprints and late models. The series then makes its second 2020 appearance at Selinsgrove Speedway on May 8.

Robinson, James, And Schott Score Friday Night Spring Fling Wins At CGS

By Stephanie Deatherage (Photo Courtesy of JRP Racing Photos) Cottage Grove, Oregon- Cottage Grove Speedway was in action on Friday, April 23rd for the Spring Fling doubleheader weekend. Unfortunately, wet weather washed away the program for the Saturday portion. Friday night had three divisions on tap including one a part of the Speedway Motors IMCA Weekly Racing program. Classes in attendance were 360 Sprints, IMCA Modifieds, and Street Stocks.

The 360 Sprints made their return to Cottage Grove Speedway after being absent since late 2019. Central Point’s Garen Linder got out to the front on the opening start of the main event. Linder remained at his post until he was overtaken shortly after a restart. It was Jodie Robinson, of Roseville, California, who managed to get past Linder.

Robinson paced the field for some time but had to deal with a pair of cautions which gave her an open race track and no lapped traffic to deal with. After returning to green flag action on lap thirteen Garen Linder made a bonsai move and passed Jodie to claim first place at the line. The race would stay green for the rest of the distance.

In the long run, Linder had to deal with the tail end of the lead lap field. It was an opportunity in which Robinson caught, and eventually passed, Garen on lap twenty-six. Jodie Robinson went on to win the feature in her first career CGS appearance.

Garen Linder was a strong second while Jacksonville teenager Tanner Holmes got third. Meridian, Idaho traveler Tyler Driever ended his night fourth while seventeenth starting Tyler Thompson, from Harrisburg, placed fifth.

For the IMCA Modifieds, Paul Rea set the pace in the first few laps. The Eugene veteran was at the point of the pack until lap three when Jeffrey Hudson managed to get around him. Hudson, from the central Oregon town of Keno and racing for car owner Don Roemer, stayed there for the majority of the race.

Hudson was overtaken late, on lap eighteen, by Albany’s Bricen James. James had to deal with a couple of stoppages which meant he had to deal with a handful of restarts. Bricen would master each of them and the seventh starting driver went on to win his first race of the entire 2021 campaign.

Corbett chauffeur Collen Winebarger got second while third place was credited to Curtis Towns, of Cottage Grove. Albany’s Matthew Drager and Otis teenager Eston Whisler were fourth and fifth in the finishing order.

Lastly in the Street Stocks main event, Anthony Prather was quick in the early goings. The Keizer youngster remained in the coveted top spot before eventually being overtaken. It was Donald Schott, from Eagle Creek, who was the new trailblazer. Only one caution occurred during the entire race and Schott checked out from the rest of the pack to go on for the victory.

Graig Osborne, of Creswell, finished in second while third went to Molalla native P.J. Humphrey. Brody Humphrey, also from Molalla, ended the race fourth while Dexter’s Mike Swaim was fifth.

Cottage Grove Speedway returns to racing on Saturday, May 1st for the Froggy 44 Tribute To Melvin Walker. This is the biggest IMCA Sport Compact event of the season and is $444.00 to win. Todd’s Auto Body Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds, Late Models, and Royalty Core IMCA Northern Sport Mods will also be in attendance. Limited tickets are available and can be purchased online at the track website.

 

 

Ty Williams Takes United Rebel Sprint Series Thriller In Dodge City

DODGE CITY, Kansas (April 25, 2021) – The Drive to Zero POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series Presented by Mel Hambelton Ford Racing kicked off their season atop the 3/8-mile semi-banked clay oval of Dodge City Raceway Park on Saturday. Twenty-one cars were in action for the season opener as Arcadia Oklahoma’s Ty Williams claimed the season opener victory.

Ty Williams and Connor Atkinson set the pace for the 30-lap feature event. The start saw Ty Williams out to the early lead ahead of Atkinson, but not without some heat from Jeremy Huish and Luke Cranston. On lap three, Huish would get past Atkinson, and lap four saw Cranston foregoing Atkinson and Huish to take the second position.

Williams, Cranston, and Huish remained in the top three, while defending United Rebel Sprint Series Champion, Zach Blurton made his march forward from a tenth place starting position. Cranston would pull several slide jobs on Williams only to have Williams cross under and continue to lead. Trouble for Cranston ensued on lap 13, ending his run for the evening. A restart saw Williams, Huish, Blurton, Atkinson, and Herbert sitting within the top-five. They remained in position until lap 21, when Taylor Velasquez crept his way into the fifth position.

A late-race restart on lap 27 saw Williams, Huish, Velasquez, Blurton, and Atkinson in the top-five. Williams again fended off the lead position while battle ensued right behind. The final lap saw a position change as Mike Woodruff got past Atkinson for the fifth position. In the end Ty Williams would claim the season opener victory at Dodge City Raceway Park with the Drive to Zero United Rebel Sprint Series.

Heat race victories went to Conner Atkinson, Brian Herbert, and Tyler Knight. The Keizer Aluminum Wheels hard-charger was awarded to Brandy Jones, who finished 13th after advancing seven positions.

Anthony Nicholson Earns Valley Speedway
Victory with POWRi WAR

Belleville, IL. (04/25/2021) For the second night in a row in The Show-Me State, the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League would wage WAR, this time around the friendly confines of Valley Speedway for the Mid-State Nationals. With a great field of competitors Anthony Nicholson would emerge as the victor with an outstanding on-track performance in a caution free feature event.

With a stout field of twenty-seven POWRi WAR drivers a trio of heat races were needed with Mario Clouser, Zach Daum, and Joe B. Miller all gaining the early wins. Semi-Feature competition would find Riley Kreisel gaining the B-feature victory.

With the high-point qualifier Anthony Nicholson leading the field of WAR drivers to the initial green-flag start, with Nicholson flying to the early advantage using an inside-line to perfection. Podium runners Zach Daum and Kory Schudy would stalk the leader as the laps progressed, while Anthony stayed close to the low line.

Lap traffic would come into play as Nicholson tried to separate himself from the rest of the contenders with laps ticking away. An intense battle for the runner-up positioning between Daum and Schudy kept the podium interesting as the laps started to wind down with Nicholson out front.

Caution-free for twenty-five laps, Anthony Nicholson would claim his third career feature win leading every lap of feature racing. With a hard battle for the second spot Zach Daum would edge Kory Schudy as Wesley Smith finished fourth and a hard-charging Colten Cottle rounded out the features top five.

“Sometimes slow and steady wins the race” feature winner Anthony Nicholson would state on the dominating victory. Going on to add “As most people know I like running the bottom, it was a little slower than I thought it would go but track positioning helped as I was able to hang on for the win.”

Pursley Earns Second Career POWRi Victory.
Grain Valley, MO. (04/25/2021) In an exciting race that saw a handful of different lead changes, Daison Pursley of Locust Grove, OK. outlasted them all to complete his second ever Lucas Oil POWRi Midget League Victory on a Sunday night at Grain Valley Speedway.

A field of 28 POWRi National & West Midgets Filled the pit area for the second night of racing, a program that saw Jake Neuman, Shelby Boise, Daison Purlsey, and Cannon McIntosh split the four heat race wins.

Winning his heat race from seventh, Pursley secured the Max Papis Innovations High Point Man honors and put his Keith Kunz Motorsports, Bullet by Spike/Toyota No. 71K on the pole position. Looking to redeem himself after getting upside down last night at Lucas Oil Speedway while leading, the youngster was determined to find redemption and quickly took command in Sunday’s 30 lap event.

While the race heated up and the lead changed hands, Jake Neuman took command found himself in a battle to keep it. Pursley regained the lead and Cannon McIntosh made himself a contender and stole the second spot from Neuman. McIntosh set his sight on Pursley for the lead as he found himself upside down after hitting the cushion in turn four.

Meanwhile Karter Sarff was roaring though the pack from the sixteenth position, aboard his family owned 21K and thanks to a well-timed caution, the field bunched back together. Pursley continues to keep the top spot under control and held on for his second career Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League victory.

Chasing Pursley to the stripe on Sunday was Karter Sarff, with his career best finish of second. Jake Neuman in the third position, Ryan Timms coming from the B main to finish in fourth, and Emerson Axsom rounding out the top five.

“To finally click off that first win of the 2021 season is pretty cool and to do it at valley speedway is really awesome. The race had a lot of yellows there and I never thought that we would see the checkered flag. Yellows are kind of hard to get your rhythm back and the KKM guys gave me a great car”

The Lucas Oil POWRi National Midgets will resume their 2021 season Saturday, May 8th with a show at the Mighty Macon Speedway in Macon, IL.

Hoffman, Flick, Wyant, Bailey, and Speer Score at Tri-City Raceway Park

(Franklin, PA April 25, 2021): Franklin's own Kevin Hoffman took his first career Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modified victory at Tri-City Raceway Park. A.J. Flick scored in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars. Teenager Tyler Wyant took the feature in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks after getting second the week before. Justin Bailey and Dalton Speer split the top honors in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stock events.

"This is great," said a happy Kevin Hoffman after getting the much awaited win. "I am so happy for my family," he added. Hoffman's late brother, Jeff, was a force to be reckoned with at the track closest to the homestead. Hoffman's father and daughter got to see the win. "I just wish my mother and wife were here to see this. They stayed home because it was too cold."

Nick Joy and Kevin Hoffman brought the 358 Modifieds to the green flag. Defending track champion, Kyle Fink, and Jimmy Holden were matched up in the second row. Newcomer Kyle Inman and Max Smoker were in the third row. Eric Beggs and Jeremiah Shingledecker were in row four. Nathan McDowell and Sid Unverzagt, Jr., occupied row five.

Hoffman sailed into turn one ahead of Nick Joy and then dropped to the inside line. Holden nestled into third, followed by Fink, Inman, Smoker and Beggs. While Hoffman was pulling away from Joy, Holden stopped inside turn one with a flat left front tire arising from some contact with Joy on the opening lap.

When racing resumed, Hoffman continued his lead over Joy, Fink, Inman, and Shingledecker. Joy slid out of the groove and lost two positions. Fink then began the chase of Hoffman, with Inman into third and Shingledecker up to fourth. Beggs spun out of contention for the top five just after taking the crossed flags marking the midpoint of the race.

That put Fink on Hoffman's bumper for the restart. Fink tried to duck under Hoffman coming off turn two, but there was not enough room. He jammed on the brakes and skid up the surface, losing several spots in the process. That gave Hoffman some extra breathing room.

Hoffman polished off the final ten laps, with Inman holding off Shingledecker to get the runner-up position. Fink recovered for fourth with Joy heading north with a fifth place paycheck. Unverzagt shook off some bad luck to get sixth, followed by seventeen-year-old Nathan McDowell. Veteran Kevin Green was seventh in his first run of the new year. Dillon Barr and Tyler Clark were ninth and tenth.

Joy and Holden were the heat winners. There was no B Main.

In the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars, A.J. Flick and George Hobaugh led the way. In the second row, it was Dan Shetler paired up with Greg Wilson, in from Ohio to tune up for the All Stars invasion next week. Carl Bowser and Bob Felmlee started in row three, with Brandon Spithaler and last week's winner, Jack Sodeman, Jr., in the fourth row. Ninth and tenth in the starting line-up were Kyle Colwell and Ricky Peterson.

Flick blasted out to the early lead with Hobaugh, Shetler, WIlson, Felmlee, and Bowser next in line. Flick was impressive, opening up a substantial lead over Hobaugh as the race progressed. Just before the halfway mark, though, Brandon Spithaler nailed the water barrels on the outside of the second turn. He was unhurt, but the leaking water caused a red flag situation for some track maintenance.

On the restart, Flick zoomed out ahead of Hobaugh again. But Sodeman rode the rim to take the third position. Flick continued to pull away from Hobaugh, who also began to separate himself from Sodeman. Wilson cruised along in fourth with Shetler in his wake.

Flick swept under the checkered flag to get his first win of the 2021 season. He was more that three and a half seconds ahead of Hobaugh at the finish. Sodeman, Wilson, and Shetler followed. Brandon Matus perked up after the restart, moving into sixth by the finish. Felmlee, Peterson, Colwell, and Brent Matus completed the top ten.

Sodeman and Flick took the preliminaries. In the heat races, Leyton Wagner crashed in turn one, but he was not hurt. There was no B Main.

In the Hovis Auto and Truck Supply Pro Stocks, Sixteen-year-old Tyler Wyant scored his first career win at Tri-City Raceway Park. He held off veteran Curtis J. Bish to earn the memorable victory. Doug Iorio, II registered another top five finish, as did William Hurrelbrink. Darr Diegelman was fifth. Sixth through tenth went to Billy Myers, Josh Blum, Josh Seippel, Ron Boardman, and Matt Bernard.

The heat winners were Seippel and Wyant. There was no B Main.

The 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks started the night with the balance of their twelve lap feature event. The racers completed just two laps before the track became too wet on opening night. Justin Bailey surged into the lead at the drop of the green flag and led the remaining ten laps. However, Dalton Speer came on strong in the second half of the race to chase him home. D.J. Mcrae finished third, followed by Pat Hanlon, Jr., Evan Sobieski, James Tasker, Chad Greeley, Gregory Kiehl, Brayden Seippel, and James Buchanan.

In the regular feature for the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks, Dalton Speer came off turn four with a full head of steam to pass Pat Hanlon, Jr. Officials had to check where the transponders were mounted on the first two cars, as the margin of victory was a scant .003 seconds. Both transponders were in their proper locations and Speer was declared the winner in what was most likely the closest race in the history of the speedway. Justin Bailey was third, followed by Gregory Kiehl and D.J. Mcrae. Evan Sobieski, James Tasker, Chad Greeley. Kevin Wice, and Brayden Seippel were the next five to cross.

Heat winners were Kiehl and Hanlon, Jr. There was no B Main.

Mark your racing calendars for the big show next week. The All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars roll into the Venango County oval to finish up a three-race mini series in Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio.

Arenz mounts inspiring charge to net MSA Gravity Park Speedway triumph

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) April 24, 2021 – On a night when misfortune hounded him in both qualifying and heat race action, Travis Arenz of Sheboygan turned it on when it mattered most as he charged from the second-to-last-row of the main event field to capture his first 25-lap Akright Auto Parts of Sheboygan Falls Midwest Sprint Car Association A-main victory of the 2021 season at Gravity Park Speedway in Chilton, Wis. on Saturday, April 24.

On a cold and blustery late April evening, which was preceded by rain showers in the afternoon, a total of 29 360 Sprint Car competitors checked in for the second MSA event of the 2021 campaign.

In the 25-lap MSA headliner, five-time MSA champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee bolted into the lead on the drop of the green flag from the pole position, as third starter Justin Erickson of Plymouth slipped past MSA rookie outside front row starter Matt Rechek of Beaver Dam to assume second in the running order.

The race was slowed for the first of three occasions on lap 2 when Brandon Berth of Cascade spun in turn two. Davis again commanded the top spot on the restart before Oshkosh’s Ken Schmick flipped in turn three after contact with 2014 MSA Masters Series champion Paul Pokorski of West Bend to bring out the red flag.

Following the restart, Erickson started to flex his muscle as he closed the gap on Davis on lap 8, before four-time MSA champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh, who started eighth, used the high groove to pass 2005 MSA champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett, who started fifth, for third place.

Two laps later, McMullen, who is racing a part-time MSA schedule this season, swept around Erickson to take over second as Arenz, who started 18th after transferring through the B main, worked the high line to seize fourth on lap 13.

McMullen quickly reeled in Davis on lap 15 and used a daring move entering turn one to work his way into the lead with Arenz in tow as the leaders began to encounter slower traffic.

One lap later, Davis lost control and made hard head-on contact with the turn one wall after racing in dense traffic, which brought out another red flag. Davis was able to emerge from the grinding impact under his own power.

During the red flag clean-up, McMullen retreated to the work area to change a flat tire, which relinquished the lead to Arenz.

After the restart, Arenz darted away from Erickson to build up a full-straightway cushion by lap 20. Arenz, who failed to register a qualifying lap after making contact with the turn two wall and dropped out of his heat race with an apparent mechanical issue, cruised over the final five laps en route to his 12th career MSA A-main win and first main event victory of the 2021 season.

Erickson held on to finish an MSA A-main career-best second, Rechek, who is a Modified and Midget racing veteran, continued his impressive rookie MSA season by recording an MSA 360 Sprint Car career-best third-place showing, Fassbender finished fourth and ninth starter Tyler Brabant of Waupun rounded out the top five.

Justin Erickson was the overall fastest qualifier for the event with a top lap of 12.034 seconds around the tight, well-prepared quarter-mile clay oval.

Heat race victories went to Justin Miller of Plymouth, Brandon McMullen, Brandon Berth and Lance Fassbender. Paul Pokorski was victorious in the 15-lap B Main.

The next Akright Auto Parts of Sheboygan Falls Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car Series returns to action on Saturday, May 1 for the Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 2021 season opener at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

Adam Kekich takes Mercer’s 410 sprint spring spectacular

By Jim Balentine

Mercer,Pa. April 24 2021

The 410 sprints made their first appearance of the season at Michael’s Mercer raceway for the 410 sprint spring spectacular with Adam Kekich inheriting the lead from Jack Sodeman who tangled with 2nd place Jeremy Kornbau knocking out both cars. Kekich then went on a tear defeating Brandon Spithaler by 5 seconds to win his 10th career Mercer 410 sprint feature and his 5th at Mercer in the past 6 races. “We were fast I don’t know if the front 2 weren’t taken out if we would have won you had to be in clean air. The car wanted to do nasty things tonight but we hit our marks and held the bottom and it paid of after a long off season. Anytime Mercer runs the 410s we will be here!” Brandon Spithaler was 2nd and surprise visitor and former All star champ Greg Wilson was 3rd.

Logan McCandless is now 2 for 2 in 305 sprint features in 2021 at Mercer dominating the event after an early battle with Jake Gomola ended after Gomola’s motor expired in turn one. “It feels good winning 2 weeks in a row” said Logan “finally found something we like and I hope to keep it going .. I knew Jake (Gomola) was there and as long as I held my line I’d be ok “ Justin Clark and Jimmy Morris were 2nd and 3rd.

Eric Gabany led wire to wire in the 15 lap FASTRAK modified feature collecting his 15th career Mercer limited modified feature. Eric said “it’s awesome to win #15 tonight the car is still relatively clean and it was great to race tonight !” Preston Cope was 2nd and Brian Schaffer was 3rd.

The mighty Mercer mini stocks ended the night with another first time winner as second generation driver Jacob Wheeler collected his first ever feature win. It wasn’t easy as Carl Ealy led early on then Wheeler, after losing his rear bumper, made the winning move going inside of Ealy and went on to take the hard fought win after staring 6th. “It feels amazing I’d like to thank my family .. I went for the lead and it went and so did my bumper” Ealy would finish 2nd and Tim Callahan was 3rd.

Bard Claims Opening Night Honors at Clinton County Speedway

Mill Hall, PA – The defending National RaceSaver Sprint Car Champion and 2020 Clinton County Speedway Champion, Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery earned the victory on opening night at 3/8th mile oval. Other winners on opening night included Bandon Moser of Millerstown in the Pro Stocks, Johnny Smith of Scranton in the 600 Micro Sprints, Wyatt Rotz of Spring Run in the 270 Micro Sprints, and Scott Englert of Bellefonte in the 4-Cylinder stocks cars.

Aaron Jacobus of Corning, NY and Bard started on the front row of the 25 lap feature event. At the drop of the green flag, Bard jumped into the lead while Jacobus battled with third place started Jeffrey Weaver of Lock Haven for the runner-up position. On lap number 5, Bard chased down the back of the field and began to encounter lapped traffic. Weaver moved into second on lap number eight with Reed Thompson, Ken Duke and Scott Lutz running in the top five.

Bard continued to dice this way through lapped traffic as his #95 car could run low or high on the speedway surface. “I was able to catch the cushion coming off of turn number 4 and the car handled really well tonight,” said Bard in Victory Lane. As Bard raced this way through lapped traffic, Weaver was running a strong second, but the third through seventh place cars were contending for position. Lutz and Dakota Schweikart were racing for the third and fourth positions while Ken Duke of Selinsgrove, Dale Schweikart of Linden and Reed Thompson of Petersburg were racing for 5th. On lap 22, Duke and Dale Schweikart were racing hard. The two cars touched and Schweikart’s car crashed on the front straightaway and rolled over bringing out the red flag. Schweikart was uninjured.

The restart provided the field one more opportunity to take the win from Bard with three laps remaining. Bard was able to hold off the challenges of Weaver with Lutz, Dakota Schweikart and Ken Duke rounding out the top 5. Sith through tenth were Jacobus, Reed Thompson, Josh Beamer, Matt Tebbs and Jarrett Clavaret. Heat races were won by Weaver and Duke.

Kevin VanAmburg of Lock Haven and Kris Orwig Sr led the field of Pro Stock to the green flag for their 15 lap main event. VanAmburg took the early lead with third place starter Nathan Stroup in second. On lap number two, while running third, Orwig spun out in turn number two and caused a five car pile-up involving Robert Tressler, Rich Fye, Noah Jensen and Gary Mellott. VanAmburg continued to lead upon the restart of the race, while the drivers running in second through fifth positions ran two and three-wide. Brandon Moser, who started fifth moved into the third spot on lap three and took the second spot from Stroup on lap number eight. On lap number nine Moser caught VanAmburg and took the lead, as Ray Rothfuss, who started seventh moved into third. In the races closing laps, the Pro Stock drivers continued to race two and three-wide while swapping position. When the checkered flag waved, Moser was the victor over Rothfuss, Noah Jensen, Nathan Stroup and Cory Long. Heat races were won by Jensen and Rothfuss.

Hunter Zimmerman and Tom Quiggle held the front row position for the start of the 270 Micro Sprint feature. By the completion of lap number one, Denny Rinehimmer advanced from his third place starting spot to lead the first circuit. On the third lap, Jeffrey Weaver moved into second place and began to pressure Rinhimmer. A lap later he made the pass for the lead with Rinehimer, Timmy Bittner, Shawn Musser and Wyatt Rotz running in the top five.

At the races midway point, Rinehimer who was running in second slowed and returned his car to the pit area allowing defending track champion Timmy Bittner to set his sites on catching Weaver. In the meantime, Rotz started moving forward and passed Bitner on lap number twelve. After the completion of the 13th lap, the yellow came out for Sam Chamberlin who stopped on the front stretch. The caution set up a green-white-checkered scenario for Weaver, Rotz, Bittner, Musser, and Dan Wertman. Weaver was getting pressure from Rotz as the white flag waved. Rotz used the top side of the speedway and carried his momentum out of turn number two to power by Weaver going down the back stretch. That pass earned Rotz his first win of year over Weaver Bittner, Musser and Wertman. Bobby Sanso finished sixth followed by Zimmerman, Buddy Kramer, Logan Hammaker and Matthew Dixon. Heat race were won by Weaver, Bittner and Quiggle.

Cody Hauck led the opening laps of the 600 Micro Sprint feature event. Hauck and Josh Beamer brought the field to the green flag for the 15 lap feature. Second generation drivers Johnny Smith and Jeffrey Weaver contested for the second position, with Smith taking second place at the completion of the second circuit. Hauck, Smith, Weaver, Beamer, and Ethan Spotts were racing in the top five at the event’s halfway mark. On the next lap, Smith passed Hauck for the lead and Weaver passed Hauck on lap number eleven to move into second. Smith held off Weaver and earned the win with a .652 second margin of victory over Weaver, Beamer, Hauck, and Spotts. Sierra Hauck, Timmy Bittner, Tyson Mowery, Mitchell Holden, and James Layton completed the top ten. Heat races were won by Beamer and Smith.

The Four Cylinder feature took the green flag in the 12 lap main event with Larry Spencer III and Maddox Smith on the front row. Smith led the opening lap with Michael Luther moving into second. At the completion of lap number two; Smith, Luther, William Kephart crashed in turn number one. Upon the restart, Spencer inherited the lead for the restart.

At the races halfway point, Englert led Spencer, Moyer, Keith Hagen, and Mike Hepner were running in the top five.

Two-time Ocean Sprints champ Shane Golobic returns to Watsonville victory lane

By Gary Thomas

Watsonville, CA – April 23, 2021…After finishing a close second the previous week Fremont’s Shane Golobic returned to Ocean Speedway on Friday and had his way with things in the feature, en route to his first Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo win of the season.
Sharing victory lane with Golobic at the event were Jim Pettit II with the IMCA Modifieds, Quintin Harris with the Hobby Stocks, Tommy Velasquez III with the South Bay Dwarf Cars and Tony Gullo with the Four Bangers.

The 30-lap Taco Bravo Winged 360 Sprint Car A-main started out with Salinas racer Keith Day Jr. and red-hot Aromas driver Justin Sanders going at it hard for the lead. Things got a little too close for comfort off the fourth corner on lap two however, which resulted in Sanders unfortunately getting upside down and ending his night. Sean Becker had nowhere to go and was also collected, but would restart.

Day was able to continue with the lead but shortly after had his hands full with Golobic, who took command and never looked back. The two-time Ocean Sprints titlist pulled away with ease during a long green flag run and went on to accept the Ed Entz checkered flag for another victory at his home track. Some of the biggest excitement in the feature came from watching Clovis’ Corey Day run the ragged edge of the quarter-mile. The 15-year-old made several impressive moves to lock up second by the finish.

Keith Day Jr. put together a solid performance to narrowly beat out Hollister’s Ryan Bernal and round out the podium. Bernal and Fresno’s Dominic Scelzi completed the top-five. The remainder of the top-10 was comprised of Colby Copeland, Mitchell Faccinto, Bud Kaeding, JJ Ringo and Tucker Worth. The evening’s B-main went to Corey Day while the Dash went to Keith Day Jr. The four heat races held were pocketed by Joey Ancona, Keith Day Jr., Ryan Bernal and Sean Becker. Golobic began the night by just missing a track record to set fast time in the 32-car field by clocking a fastest lap of 11.248.

Ocean Sprints main event finish: 1 #17W Shane Golobic 2 #41 Corey Day 3 #22 Keith Day Jr. 4 #17WX Ryan Bernal 5 #41S Dominic Scelzi 6 #5V Colby Copeland 7 #37 Mitchell Faccinto 8 #69 Bud Kaeding 9 #2K J.J. Ringo 10 #33 Tucker Worth 11 #88A Joey Ancona 12 #7P Jake Andreotti 13 #3T Nick Ringo 14 #88K Koen Shaw 15 #18 Grant Champlin 16 #83V Sean Becker 17 #12J John Clark 18 #8 Jeremy Chisum 19 #78 Bret Barney 20 #17 Justin Sanders 21 #3M Adam Kaeding 22 #72W Kurt Nelson

Track conditions lent well to entertaining racing in all divisions Friday night. Matt Hagio grabbed the early lead in the IMCA Modified feature but encountered problems on a lap two restart that sent him to the rear of the field. JC Elrod then inherited the top-spot before feeling heavy pressure from veteran Jim Pettit II. The Ocean Speedway icon hounded Elrod’s rear until charging past for the lead with six laps complete. Robert Marsh battled his way up to second until issues left him parked on the speedway just prior to the halfway point.

Round one winner Cody Burke then came to life over the second half of the 25-lapper and tried to find a way around Pettit. The pair raced close together and delighted the fans watching live via FloRacing. Pettit ended up claiming the victory over Cody Burke, Austin Burke, Carl Berendsen and Elrod. Hagio and Pettit captured the two heat races held during the night.

The Hobby Stocks showcased some of their best racing of the season on Friday in the 20-lap finale. Tony Oliveira blasted to the lead from the outside of the front row and held command with Wally Kennedy and Jerry Skelton not far behind. Drama on lap-five then saw Kennedy and Skelton come together off the second corner, relegating each to the rear of the field.

Quintin Harris moved up to second and then sliced his way past Oliveira for the lead on lap 10. Harris went on to pick up the big win as Skelton rebounded nicely to carve his way back to a runner up finish. Oliveira, Adriane Frost and Joe Gallaher completed the top-five. Skelton and Terry Campion were heat race winners.

The South Bay Dwarf Car main event was all about Tommy Velasquez III who utterly dominated the 20-lapper. Velasquez charged away from the field to win easily over Mark Biscardi, Travis Day, Trafton Chandler and Dan Zuger. Although Velasquez was in a different zip code the fight for second was a good one between Biscardi and several other drivers. Heat race wins were picked off by Biscardi and Velasquez.

In the Four Banger finale it was Richard Mitchell leading early until Tony Gullo grabbed the point on lap six. Gullo eventually won his second feature of the season over Bill Beardsley, Mitchell, Nicole Beardsley and Travis Vangilder.

Racing returns to Ocean Speedway next Friday night with another round of Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo competition plus Hobby Stocks, Four Bangers and Police N Pursuit.

 

 

Wise dominates for 1st career Attica 410 win; Schlenk takes late model victory; Miller earns 2nd 305 win in a row

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – It’s hard to believe Zeb Wise and his family, along with veteran crew chief Wayne Priddy, put a new team together in just a few months and are already winning. The 18-year-old Angola, Indiana driver dominated Friday, April 23 on Craig Miller Trucking/Bucyrus Road Materials Presented by Integrity Auto & Truck Sales Night at Attica Raceway Park to earn his first 410 sprint car win at the track.

Wise becomes the fifth first time Attica winner in the division in the first six races of the year. Wise took the lead on lap three and never looked back, taking the checkers with a 5.1 second lead, nearly half a track ahead of Trey Jacobs, who charged from 16th starting spot.

“I knew we would be pretty good here after are All Star performance…it kind of boosted by confidence coming here. I can’t thank my dad, Wayne, Sundollar Restoration, Quik Pits Auto…so many people on this car…Specialty Rigging, Bill’s Towing, Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales and everyone that helps out. It feels really good to be standing up here,” said Wise, the 2020 FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions Rookie of the Year.

“That is one thing I’ve always enjoyed about this place. It’s really racy in the features and honestly I’ve always been pretty good here in whatever car I’ve been in early in the night and have just not been able to cap it off. I knew when I passed winner DJ Foos in lapped traffic we had to be pretty far out,” added Wise.

McClure, Ohio’s Rusty Schlenk survived a tangle with a lapped car and jumping the treacherous cushion in turns three and four late in the Dirt Nerds Podcast/Propane.com UMP Late Model feature and captured his 29th career win at Attica. Schlenk now sits atop the division’s all-time win list.

“I got into that lapped car going down the front stretch and got squeezed into the wall and I think it bent the left front spindle because I had a hand full after that. I don’t know if it’s towed out or in but I couldn’t drive straight. We jumped the cushion at that end. I was trying to take it easy and save the right rear…we went soft on tire. I didn’t see a nose so was just on cruise control but I knew when I jumped that cushion I’d have Irey or Drown there to take advantage so I turned up the wick the last few laps,” said Schlenk.

“I just love this place…the track is always awesome. Track work is great. You can run all over. There’s always a cushion…you can run around the tires…there’s a middle. You can set your car up to whatever your driver style is and I’m an up on the wheel up on the cushion type of guy so it fits my driving style to be able to rip around the lip of this place,” added Schlenk beside his Buckeye Concrete, VP Fuel, Tom Finch Auto, Bilstein Shocks, Landrum Springs, Dominator Race Products backed machine.

Fremont, Ohio’s Jamie Miller led the first nine laps of the Fremont Fence 305 Sprint feature before surrendering to Dustin Stroup in lapped traffic. But Miller used the same traffic to regain the lead on lap 14 and survived three late race cautions to score his second straight Attica win, the 29th of his career in the division where he sits second all-time. It is Miller’s third consecutive win as he won last Saturday at Waynesfield Raceway Park. Even more impressive, Miller has not finished out of the top three all season long.

“God I love this sh*#! That cushion is perfect. When I got into lapped traffic it got a little iffy…I had to slow down a little bit and I started seeing Stroup and he snuck by me and I just picked up the pace and worked my way back up there. This thing was bad fast in clean air…I didn’t have to lift and I could just run the top wide open and it rolled around there beautiful,” said Miller beside his Smitty’s Pizza, JLH General Contractor, Queen of Clean, Rohr Total Lawn Care, Sonic Hauling, Phil Rister, Sloopy’s Pizza, Reedtown Tavern, Crown Battery, Schreiner Farms, Roberts & Sons Contracting, Fostoria Mod Shop, Kenny Kalb Farms backed #26.

Stuart Brubaker and Caleb Griffith brought the field to green for the 30 lap Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprint A-main with Brubaker gaining the advantage over third starter Wise, Griffith, Cole Macedo, Craig Mintz and Travis Philo. Waynesfield winner Gary Taylor tangled with Nate Dussel on lap two with Taylor flipping; both cars were done for the night in what would be the feature’s only stoppage. On the restart Wise drove into the lead with Brubaker, Griffith, Macedo, Mintz and Trey Jacobs.

Heavy lapped traffic by the 10th circuit didn’t slow Wise who built his lead to four seconds. At the half-way point Wise maintained his commanding lead over Brubaker, Griffith and Jacobs. Jacobs moved into second on lap 19 but Griffith took the runner-up slot back a lap later. With eight laps remaining, Wise held his biggest lead of the race at 5.5 seconds over Griffith and Jacobs. Jacobs retook second with four laps to go but couldn’t catch Wise who cruised to the win. Griffith, Macedo and Brubaker rounded out the top five. Jacobs took the track point lead with his runner-up finish.

Last week’s winner Matt Irey and Chester Fitch paced the field for the 25 lap late model A-main but a caution on the start necessitated a second try which saw Schlenk take the lead over Irey, Doug Drown and Casey Noonan. A multi-car crash on lap two kept he field close but Schlenk used the cushion to power back into the lead over Irey and Drown.

As Schlenk entered lapped traffic on lap 10, Drown, who took second two laps prior, closed quickly while Irey ran comfortably in third and a tremendous battle ensued for fourth involving Devin Shiels, Noonan and two time feature winner Ryan Markham. With five laps to go Schlenk jumped the thin cushion in turns three and four but Drown did the same as they maintained their top spots. Schlenk drove to the win over Drown, Irey, Shiels and Markham.

At the start of the 25 lap 305 A-main outside front row starter Miller wasted little time jumping into the lead over Dustin Stoup, Luke Griffith, Mike Keegan and Paul Weaver. The leaders caught heavy lapped traffic by the ninth circuit and Stroup closed, driving to Miller’s inside and taking the lead as he and Miller split two lappers. Miller drove to the cushion and regained the lead on lap 14 and began to pull away.

With 10 laps to go Miller held a nice lead over Stroup as Weaver, a three time winner this season, worked into third. By lap 20 Miller had put a pair of lapped cars between himself and Stroup with Weaver, Griffith, Keegan and Matt Foos giving chaser. Something went amiss for Weaver on the next lap as he went pit side, handing third back to Griffith.

The caution flew with three laps to go and a lap later another caution put Stroup right on Miller’s rear bumper. Two cars spun on the restart and when the green flew with two laps to go Miller executed a phenomenal restart and drove away to the win over Stroup, Griffith, Keegan and Foos.

Attica Raceway Park is back in action Friday, April 30 on The Adkins Group, Smith Paving Night. It’s the 2021 debut of the Kistler Racing Products/All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group and the NAPA of Bryan 305 AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales with the late models also in action.

McGee Wins At Path Valley ‘Home’

Full circle.

Mikell McGee, fourth-generation member of the family that built Path Valley Speedway, collected his first PA Sprint Series feature victory in Saturday night’s 25-lap feature at his home track.

In only his tenth PASS race, the resident of nearby Doylesburg survived a fierce battle – and contact – with Kenny Heffner, who also was seeking his first PASS win. Then there was the green-white-checkered finish with 2020 PASS and IMCA/RaceSaver National Champion Garrett Bard on his bumper.

McGee and his CM Fuels #11M faced and rose above those challenges and came home the winner.

Bard, of Wells Tannery, hung on for second, with second-year PASS driver Rowdy Heffner of Red Lion scoring a career-best third. Will Brunson of Middleburg also posted a career-best finish with his fourth and was the evening’s hard charger, advancing nine positions after starting 13th. Austin Reed of Etters completed the top five.

The remainder of the top ten included Mike Alleman, rookie Zach Rhodes, John Walp, Dave Wickham and Andrew Jacobus.

The night was most disappointing for Watsontown’s Kenny Heffner, who grabbed the early lead after fellow front-row starter (and last week’s Selinsgrove winner) Justin Mills jumped the cushion and had to retire his car. That made McGee Heffner’s challenger, and the two battled fiercely until they collided as McGee tried go get by on the low side in turn four. Heffner was knocked out of shape but held on to the runner-up spot in his Morgan Paving/Maloney Builders #97 and continued to challenge until he spun in turn four and was clipped by John Walp. That ended Heffner’s run.

McGee still had a couple of restarts to survive, including the final green-white-checker, but he delighted the large contingent of his fans on hand to hold the lead and record the win.

McGee and Alleman were heat winners for the 17-car field.

The PASS sprinters return to Port Royal Speedway this Saturday for their first repeat visit to a speedway. “Nitro Nick” Sweigart bested a 54-car field to record the win on April 3. It will be the first of two straight Saturday night shows for PASS at the Port.

Sodeman, Brachmann, and Seippel Win Before Rain Sets in at Tri-City Raceway Park

(Franklin, PA April 18, 2021): Defending 410 Sprint track champion opened the defense of his Shawgo Real Estate title in fine form, leading all 25 laps. Joining him in victory lane were Chad Brachmann and Josh Seippel in the Krill Recycling 358 Modifieds and Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, respectively. The 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks completed only two laps before wet conditions forced a suspension of the race. It will be completed next week.

In the Shawgo Real Estate 410 Sprint Car division Jack Sodeman, Jr. held off pesky New York driver Matt Farnham to capture the first round of action. Sodeman had to to endure a green-white-checkered finish. Farnham made a run at the veteran from North Jackson, OH, but he could not draw up next to him.

"I'm out of shape for an old man on this kind of track," Sodeman said with a smile. "I had to go into protection mode the last few laps."

Sodeman and Farnham brought the Shawgo Real Estate 410 Sprint Cars to the first feature green flag of the season. Carl Bowser and George Hobaugh fired off from row two, and Darrin Gallagher and Brandon Matus from the third. Brandon Spithaler and Bob Felmlee were paired off in row four. Leyton Wagner and Mike Lutz, Jr. started in row five.

Sodeman fired first and he led the field into turn one. Farnham tucked into second, followed by Hobaugh, Bowser, and Brandon Matus. The action only lasted for three laps, when the wing collapsed on the machine of divisional rookie Jeremy Weaver.

Sodeman led the next 21 laps without interruption, but Farnham remained within striking distance throughout. Hobaugh raced along in third. The battle on the speedway was for the fourth position between Brandon Matus and Brandon Spithaler. Carl Bowser joined the fray as well.

At the checkers, it was Sodeman over Farnaham, Hobaugh, Brandon Matus, and Bowser. Spithaler fell back to sixth in the final two-lap dash. Felmee and Gallagher were next. Brent Matus and Kyle Colwell completed the top ten. Colwell had a scare in the early going when he did a little off-roading between turns one and two. He was able to keep control and completed the entire distance.

Heat winners this night were Jack Sodeman, Jr. and Carl Bowser. There was no B Main.

In the Krill Recycling 358 Modifieds, Jeremiah Shingledecker and Eric Beggs had the front row covered. Jimmy Holden and and Kyle Fink started in the second row. Nick Joy and Kevin Hoffman lined up in row three. Curt Bish and Chad Brachmann came from row four and Max Smoker and Nathan McDowell pulled away from row five.

Chad Brachmann carried the winner's share north across the border to the Empire State. He methodically worked his way to the front. Then, he used a powerful outside move in a late race restart to pass Shingledecker, who led from the start.

Jimmy Holden chased Shingledecker most of the way. He also made a feint on Shingledecker when the race had its final restart with just three laps remaining. He drew up inside of Shingledecker, but he could not pull off the pass.

At the finish, it was Brachmann over Shingledecker, Holden, Hoffman, and Nathan McDowell. D.J. Schrader, Max Smoker, Curtis Bish, Jr., and Eric Beggs rounded out the top ten.

Jeremiah Shingledecker and Chad Brachmann prevailed in the preliminaries. There was no B Main.

In the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, Doug Iorio, II and William Hurrelbrink paced the field for the start of the A Main. Michael Miller and Josh Seippel lined up behind them, followed by Tyler Wyant and Pat Fielding. Josh Blum and Darr Diegelman started in row four Curtis J. Bish and Mike Bordt had row five.

PIRTEK Upper Midwest Renegades at the Legendary Opener for Night 2

New Richmond, WI (April 17, 2021) by: Terry Lehnertz The 2021 Legendary Opener at the Cedar Lake Speedway wrapped up on Saturday with some blisteringly fast races for the Pirtek Renegades of the Upper Midwest Sprintcar Series.

Once again, the Traditional sprints were the first of the ten classes to contest their feature, and once again the field was paced by fast timers Scott Brandt and Cam Schafer. At the drop of the green, the field came under a quick red flag due to the single-roll tumble of Brad Cunningham. Back under green, Schafer won the drag race into turn one and never looked back. Harry Hanson ran second with Brandt third while Jake Kouba was trying to break away from the pack and join Hanson and Brandt. As Schafer pushed his racing groove ever higher each circuit, seemingly on a mission to lap everyone but himself, the battle mid-pack was intense. Brandt, Mike Mueller, Blake Anderson, Nick DaRonco and Brad Peterson were slicing and dicing, swapping lines and positions. At the double checkers, it was Schafer who made it a perfect 3-for-3 on the season with his second win in as many nights. Rounding out the rest of the top five were Hanson, Anderson, Kouba and Brandt.

Outside of row one proved an advantageous starting spot for the winged Pirtek Renegades also, with Chase Viebrock squirting to the point in front of fast timer Harry Hanson at the start of their 18-lap feature. Viebrock pulled to a huge advantage, but Hanson appeared to begin reeling him in as his tires gained temperature. A hard flip in turn one at the crossed flags brought out the second red flag of the evening when Jeff Pellersels found his #22 sprinter greasy side up. “RaceDoc” was able to walk away from the crash, but his mount could only limp back to the pits with an assist from the hook. When action resumed, “the New Richmond Nightmare” put on a clinic in the second half, walking away with his first win of the season. Behind Viebrock, it was Hanson, Mark Chevalier, Dave Becker, and Todd Hansen comprising the rest of the top five.

The Traditional sprints are back in action this Saturday, April 24 at Cedar Lake Speedway. The following week, May 1, sees the Traditionals back at CLS while the Western Renegades kick off their season at Devil’s Lake Speedway in Crary, North Dakota. The Wings next event is scheduled for Friday May 8, at Eagle Valley Speedway in Jim Falls, Wisconsin. Joining the wings in at EVS will be the Traditional Pirtek Renegades as well as the Chequamegon Renegades, who kick off their season in a co-sanctioned event with the Traditionals at the Jim Falls speed plant.

 

 

Justin Sanders, Dan Jinkerson, Wyatt Lakin and Craig Holsted claim Placerville Speedway wins on Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – April 17, 2021…The impressive early season dominance of Justin Sanders continued Saturday at Placerville Speedway, as the Aromas driver captured his third triumph in as many races with the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Cars.

Sharing victory lane on Saturday night with Sanders were Dan Jinkerson in the Pure Stocks, Wyatt Lakin in the Mini Trucks and Craig Holsted with the BCRA Lightning Sprints. Year-long speedway partner ANRAK Corp. also added in $500 that was sprinkled throughout the Sprint Car, Pure Stock and Mini Truck divisions.

The 25-lap Thompson’s Winged Sprint Car finale came to the line with Fremont’s Shane Golobic and Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick on the front row. When the green flag waved it was Carrick who shot to the lead with Justin Sanders quickly slicing his way up to second. A caution on lap-nine set up a restart that saw Sanders make his move for the top spot. The wheelman of the Dale Miller Septic No. 4SA stayed glued to Carrick’s rear bumper and executed a picture perfect slider in turn four to grab the lead on lap 11.

After that Sanders had his way with things out front for the most part, but the action behind him remained hot and heavy. Carrick and Golobic delighted the solid crowd on hand with an entertaining back and forth duel for the runner up spot. The final stoppage of the race occurred with four laps remaining and during it Sanders once again checked out with ease to snag the Ron Stahl checkered flag for his 16th career Winged 360 win at the Placerville bullring. It marked his ninth overall victory of the 2021 campaign.

Golobic, Carrick and Hollister’s Ryan Bernal showcased a torrid three-car battle over the final laps, which saw Golobic finish second ahead of 13th starter Bernal, Carrick and Roseville’s Jodie Robinson in the top-five.

Rounding out the top-10 were Chase Majdic, 17th starter Michael Faccinto, Andy Gregg, Joel Myers Jr. and Caden Sarale. Majdic won the evening’s B-main while heat race wins went to Michael Ing, Andy Gregg, Justin Sanders and Kyle Offill. Majdic earned the ADCO Driveline Fast Time Award to begin the night by clocking a 10.770. House of Hard Tops also added in $50 to all the first non-transfer cars in the heats during the event.

The Pure Stock feature was all about the Jinkerson brothers on Saturday. Kevin Jinkerson started from the outside of the front row and quickly jumped into the lead but soon felt pressure in the form of brother Dan, who would assume the top-spot on lap four. The duo proceeded to race closely for several laps and kept the crowd on the edge of their seats. Following a caution on lap 11 though Dan kicked it into overdrive and charged away from the field in the closing stages.

Dan Jinkerson crossed under the checkered to record his 32nd career Pure Stock victory at the Placerville Speedway over Kevin Jinkerson, Jason Palmer, Nick Baldwin and Russ Murphy. The Pure Stocks continue to put on exceptional races week after week on the tight bullring. Dan Jinkerson and Palmer brought home the two heat races held at the event.

Rookie driver Wyatt Lakin of Diamond Springs returned to the Placerville Speedway and claimed his second Mini Truck win of the season on Saturday. Howard Miller led the opening lap of the main event but Lakin quickly asserted himself as a favorite and charged to the point one lap later. A caution waved on lap four and during the restart Mike Miller was able to carve his way by for the lead in exciting fashion. Lakin returned the favor on lap seven however, and went on to take the checkered flag over Miller, Thomas Jenson, Tim Stanwood and Aaron Rupley.

The traveling BCRA Lightning Sprints provided a solid 20-lap feature on Saturday. Placerville’s own Terry Bergstrom led the field from the pole but as they rounded turn four to click off the opening lap it was Rancho Cordova racer Craig Holsted who shot to the lead. Hunter Kinney then moved into second and hounded the rear of Holsted’s machine for several laps, prior to a caution on the ninth circuit. H. Kinney’s bid at victory then came to an end when he spun around with four laps remaining.

Throughout the race Terry Bergstrom found a little higher line to his liking and kept Holsted within sight, but at the finish it was Holsted coming out on top over Bergstrom, Scott Kinney, Josef Ferolito and Hunter Kinney. The father-son duo of Scott and Hunter Kinney captured the two heat races held respectively.

Trailing Lux and Caskey on the restart were Markham, Todd Brennan and Wes Morrison as those two had a battle going for fourth. Completing lap 11, Markham would tangle with a lapped car right at the flag stand as he whacked the wall and went skidding into the infield. Markham went to the pits to have his car checked out and returned but lasted only two circuits before pulling off. The action continued on for four more laps when Larry Bellman slowed on the track and just as the green flag was to wave from that, third place running Brennan stopped in turn three, ending his night. From that point on, the race would go green and Lux and his Rivers Edge, Jim's Automotive and Strongland Construction #111 would pull away from Caskey for the win, Morrison would finish third for the second time this season as Bellman came back to take fourth while Jerry Aber filled out the top five.

Last-corner pass nets Schmidt MSA
Jim Wipperfurth Memorial victory

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) April 17, 2021 – Former Midwest Sprint Car Association champion Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove pulled off a thrilling last corner pass to outduel hard-charging Sheboygan competitor Travis Arenz and secure a 2021 season-opening victory in the 25-lap Akright Auto Parts of Sheboygan Falls Midwest Sprint Car Association Jim Wipperfurth Memorial A-main at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Saturday, April 17.

The first event of the 23rd season of MSA series competition drew 34 entrants to Beaver Dam Raceway, which served as the birthplace of Winged 360 Sprint Car racing in Southeastern Wisconsin in 1996.

Polesitter Tim Haddy of Mayville, who has been racing Winged 360 Sprint Cars since the division’s inception at Beaver Dam Raceway in 1996, jumped into the lead on the drop of the green flag as fourth starter Ben Schmidt, who captured the 2011 MSA title, bolted into second and Travis Arenz moved up from his sixth starting spot to slide into third on the opening circuit.

On lap 3, Schmidt moved in to pressure Haddy for the top spot. Two laps later, Schmidt pulled off a slide job in turn two to briefly seize the lead before Haddy battled back along the fast middle groove to regain the top spot in turn four.

Haddy and Schmidt continued their side-by-side duel until Schmidt finally gained control of the lead exiting turn four on lap 7. Four laps later, Arenz made his presence felt as he worked the high groove to surge ahead of the low riding Haddy before the first of two caution flags was displayed for a spin involving Josh Teunissen in turn four on lap 12.

On the restart, five-time MSA champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee spun in turn two and collected Justin Miller of Plymouth, Jason Johnson of Campbellsport, Waupun’s Will Gerrits and MSA rookie Matt Rechek of Beaver Dam. Davis, Miller, Johnson and Rechek were able to continue, but Gerrits was done for the night.

When the race resumed, Arenz went to the cushion to challenge Schmidt, who was stuck to the middle line of the multi-groove third-mile facility. On lap 19, Arenz finally pounced as he bolted around Schmidt with a high move in turn two.

Two laps later, Arenz began to encounter heavy lapped traffic, which allowed Schmidt to cut the gap considerably. As Arenz was forced to deal with a pair of slower cars racing side-by-side just ahead of him, Schmidt moved to within striking distance on the white flag lap.

Schmidt used a huge run down the backstretch on the final lap to pull even with Arenz along the inside groove in turn three and sweep into the lead in turn four en route to his 27th career MSA A-main victory.

Arenz had to settle for second, Haddy took third, two-time MSA champion Danny Schlafer of Sussex took third after starting eighth and 2005 MSA champ Lance Fassbender of Burnett charged up from the 15th starting spot to finish fifth.

Heat race victories went to Tyler Davis of South Milwaukee, Tim Haddy, Kevin Karnitz of West Bend and Danny Schlafer.

Austin Hartmann of Plymouth claimed his first career MSA race victory in the 15-lap B main.

The next race on the 2021 Akright Auto Parts of Sheboygan Midwest Sprint Car Association schedule is Saturday, April 24 at Gravity Park Speedway in Chilton. The program will also feature Sport Mods, 4-Cylinders and Street Stocks.

Gary Taylor gets redemption in Waynesfield FAST win; Miller earns exciting 305 victory

Saturday, April 17, 2021

By Brian Liskai

WAYNESFIELD, Ohio – Indianapolis, Indiana’s Gary Taylor was dejected after Friday’s race at Attica Raceway Park where he led a few laps and faded as the race went on, saying he made too many mistakes. He redeemed himself Saturday at Waynesfield Raceway Park, leading all 30 laps on NAPA Auto Parts of Fremont Night to score the Ti22 Performance FAST on Dirt win to maintain his series’ points lead.

Driving the Joe and Diane Seeling owned #97, Taylor, who hasn’t had a lot of seat time in a sprint car the past few years, drove a flawless race on the fast bullring to score the victory aboard his Beaverdam Fleet Services/Sugar Street Bar & Grille/Northwest Towing and Recovery backed machine.

“I kind of felt like after that last yellow those weren’t my best laps. The track kind of got slicker and started to clean up right before that caution and it was pretty slippery. I have to thank Andy Potter….he gave me a great race car and Joe for busting his butt all the time and Joe and Diane Seeling for giving me the chance to drive race cars again. It feels good to get a win. This was my cup of tea right here. That was pretty fun,” Taylor said.

Fremont, Ohio’s Jamie Miller got a bit complacent late in the 305 sprint feature and it nearly cost him. However, the driver of the Smitty’s Pizza, JLH General Contractor, Queen of Clean, Rohr Total Lawn Care, Sonic Hauling, Phil Rister, Sloopy’s Pizza, Reedtown Tavern, Crown Battery, Schreiner Farms, Roberts & Sons Contracting, Fostoria Mod Shop, Kenny Kalb Farms sponsored machine got back up on the wheel and drove to his second win of the weekend, having taken the victory the night before at Attica.

“He (Shawn Valenti) showed me his nose too early. I was just cruising….I knew I had a good lead and then he stuck his nose under me and it was go time,” said Miller.

For the 30-lap $4,000 to win FAST feature, Max Stambaugh and Taylor brought the field to green with Taylor immediately jumping into the lead over Stambaugh, Cale Conley, Greg Wilson, Chris Andrews, Travis Philo and DJ Foos. Fast qualifier Buddy Kofoid brought out the first caution when he stopped on lap five. Taylor now had Conley on his rear bumper but he executed a great restart and pulled away.

Heavy lapped traffic came into play on lap 12 but a caution gave Taylor a clear track and he jumped back into the lead over Conley, Stambaugh and Wilson while a wild battle ensued for fifth involving Philo, Andrews and Foos. Just as Taylor was set to encounter lapped traffic again on lap 19 another caution flew. On the restart Cole Macedo, who won the previous night at Attica, took a tumble and was uninjured.

The race would go caution-free the rest of the distance and Taylor built a good lead while Conley had his hands full for second from Stambaugh and Philo. Wilson came alive and took third on lap 23 while Stambaugh, Philo and Foos battled for fourth.

Taylor drove away to the win over Conley, Philo, Foos and Wilson.

Shawn Valenti and Larry Kingseed Jr. brought the field to green for the 25 lap feature with Kingseed taking the lead over Valenti, Miller, Zeth Sabo, Luke Griffith and Dustin Stroup.
