HAMILTON JR TAMES SOUTHERN SPRINTS; STREAK NOW AT FOUR

November 19, 2022 – Punta Gorda, Florida – Davey Hamilton Jr. captured Saturday night’s 40-lap BG Products Southern Sprint Car Shootout Series victory at 417 Southern Speedway in Punta Gorda, Florida.

Polesitter Steven Hollinger led the opening 22 circuits and it appeared he could be a contender for his first series win after building a sizeable lead. At one point he had nearly half lap lead on the field. A lap 22 caution changed the complexion of the race.

The double file restart would see Davey Hamilton Jr. line up beside race leader Hollinger. When the green flag waved, Hamilton momentary took the lead going exiting turn two, but Hollinger would not go away quietly. Hollinger would hold the lead as the duo crossed the stripe to complete lap 23.

Hamilton would take the lead for good one lap later and build a sizeable lead the rest of the way to win in dominating fashion. Hamilton’s margin of victory over Hollinger was 7.013 seconds.

Following second place Hollinger were Daniel Miller, Colton Bettis, and fifth place finisher Bruce Brantley.

With Hamilton’s win, his current series streak now stands at four-in-a-row. In addition, in winged asphalt sprint car competition, he has won five out of his last six starts dating back to July 4th weekend.

The event was contested in front of a packed house. It was announced on Thursday that current 417 Speedway leaseholder Joe Gentry’s lease will not be renewed at the conclusion of the season. The new leaseholder has plans to turn the facility into an entertainment venue and the speedway will soon be demolished. The final sprint cat race in the storied history of the track will take place when the BG Products Southern Sprint Car Shootout Series returns December 3 for its season finale.

40-lap feature results:

1. 14-Davey Hamilton Jr.; 2. 85-Stephen Hollinger; 3. 5-Daniel Miller; 4. 61-Colton Bettis; 5. 25-Bruce Brantley; 6. 88a-Sport Allen; 7. 67-Scott Adema; 8. 1-Taylor Ferns; 9. 55-Tommy Nichols; 10.32-Bo Hartley; DNS 92-Ryan Adema

 

 

MADDINGTON TOYOTA SPRINTCAR SERIES

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2022

James Inglis is the King

He won the latest edition of the Scardifields Smash Repairs King of Wings at the Perth Motorplex on Saturday night – in what was a big night of sprintcar racing, with more than 70 sprintcars featured across three divisions.

The event was round three of the 2022-23 Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series, with Inglis and Diamond Bay Motorsport winning the 40-lap feature race from Jason Kendrick and Dayne Kingshott.

Not only did Inglis take the win, but he also pocketed the extra $5000 bounty that was put up by Frank Scardifield from event sponsor Scardifields Smash Repairs for being the driver leading the pack when the compulsory infield pitstop was called to break the race into two sections.

The bounty was paid because Inglis was leading when the stoppage was called and was still in front at the end.

Inglis started the night off by being fourth quickest in his qualifying group and because of the top four invert, he started his heat race from the front row which he won.

He then won the A Dash from the front, setting up a pole start for the main event.

Inglis was joined on the front row by Kingshott who was the quickest in his qualifying group, went from fourth to second in his heat race and then won the B Dash.

The feature race started with 22 cars, with both Nathan Swan and George Eaton being non-starters.

Inglis got the jump at the start over Kingshott and very quickly opened up a buffer.

Kingshott was then locked into a duel with Andrew Priolo, who started from p4, and shortly afterwards Kendrick, who started from the third row, joined in on the party.

Kendrick then slid under Kingshott but the Krikke Motorsport entry was equal to the task and after trading lines, Kingshott won the early contest.

Inglis opened up a big gap and moments later the field grouped up as the first caution period came on.

On the restart Kye Scroop, looked racy in the middle of the pack, while Inglis again got the jump and enjoyed fresh air out in front before he reached lapped traffic.

AJ Nash, who started from the fourth row, was having a good bout with Kendrick and pursued the lower line which appeared to be working for a while and shortly after Kris Coyle spun onto the bike track from the back straight and was out of the show.

He remonstrated with his arms that the cautions should have come on, but to no avail.

WIth 10 laps in the book Inglis was deep in traffic on a track that was starting to get dusty, a big turnaround after good rainfall fell in the couple of days leading up to the event.

By this stage Scroop had got by Nash for fifth and he was looking to bank more solid points after he won the first feature race of the season back on October 22.

The next caution period was on lap 12, when officials called the pitstop after earlier telling drivers it would be called somewhere between lap 12 and 20.

Inglis then again opened up a good lead over Priolo and the rest of the pack and Kendrick unsuccessfully tried an inside run on Kingshott but the move didn’t stick - he did get by a few laps later and after 15 laps Nash was fifth over Scroop,

Two laps later Trent Pigdon headed infield, just before Inglis was up on the backmarkers Jack Williamson and Mitchell Wormall.

Kingshott by this stage was also back in front of Kendrick.

On lap 23 Inglis put Daniel Harding a lap down, an interesting move with Harding being the defending King of Crowns champion.

Harding was struggling and it became obvious when he spun around on the approach to the main straight, for another caution period, and Inglis lost his big lead again.

With 15 laps to go it was Inglis, Andrew Priolo, Kingshott, Kendrick and Scroop - and while Priolo edged closer to the leader, the orange lights were back on - this time after Robbie Farr and Nash made contact on the main straight.

With 14 to go Inglis set sail again with Andrew Priolo in pursuit and this time Kendrick made a move over Kingshott for third, putting a gap on him as there were intense midfield battles involving David Priolo, Matt Egel, Scroop, Brad Maiolo, Taylor Milling, Callum Williamson and Jason Pryde.

David Priolo was on the move and running the lower line to his advantage as Scroop got his car crossed up and momentarily ended on the bike track before rejoining the action with seven laps to go.

Milling headed to the infield with four laps to go with what looked like front end damage and then Andrew Priolo went a little too deep in turn two, and spun, with Kendrick just missing him.

On the final restart it was Inglis to lead away from Kendrick, Kingshott, Egel and David Priolo and it was a mad dash to the finish line.

David Priolo, who started from p10, took fourth over Egel who started from p15 and finished fifth.

Maiolo took sixth after starting from p3 and this result goes with his ninth and fifth in the first two rounds.

Defending series champion Callum Williamson, who had engine issues earlier in the night and had to dig deep, started p19 and finished seventh, advancing an incredible 12 spots, to be the Kincrome Hard Charger.

Pryde finished eighth after starting from p18, also a great drive, while ninth went to Ryan Lancaster who started from p21, showing plenty of progress as the race went on.

Nash rounded out the top 10, followed by Scroop, Wormall, Jack Williamson and Jaydee Dack.

Drivers who elected to play their Jokers (doubling their feature race points) in the first of five opportunities were Robbie Farr, Dayne Kingshott, Jason Kendrick, Taylor Milling, Kye Scroop, Callum Williamson, James Inglis and Andrew Priolo, with the second of five Joker window opportunities opening on the December 26 show.

With three rounds in the books, Kendrick leads on 580 points from Kingshott and Inglis on 568 each, Callum Williamson 528 and Scroop 520 to round out the top five.

The next round of the Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series will be the WA Sprintcar Championship - John Day Classic at the Perth Motorplex on Saturday, December 3.

This is the last local show before the first of seven rounds of Sprintcar Speedweek that starts at the Motorplex on December 26.

DRAKE EDWARDS SCORES $1800 PAYDAY WITH INAUGURAL BILLY SHUMAN TRIBUTE WIN

Glendale, Ariz. (November 13, 2022) – Drake Edwards of Surprise, Ariz. dominated the 25-lap Tribute to Billy Shuman on Saturday night at Adobe Mountain Speedway, earning an $1800 payday for his fourth win of the year in Western Midget Racing. The event closed the 2022 WMR season presented by Masters Design and Construction with round 28 taking place on the bullring in Glendale, Ariz.

Cory Brown of Peoria, Ariz. closed the Adobe championship while Brentwood’s Blake Bower had already clinched back-to-back overall series titles with his win at Ventura Raceway in October.

20 Midgets were on hand for the special night which also included inductions into the Arizona Motorsports Hall of Fame, a Toy Drive, and other festivities. Edwards, Chloe High of Goodyear, Ariz., and Shon Deskins of Waddell, Ariz. won the three heat races. The $300-to-win Dash was won by Gary DeWitt of Mesa, Ariz. For the first time in series history, a B-Main was held with Peoria’s Dale Eliason, Jr. dominating the 12-lap affair.

A field of 16 entries took the green for the feature. Dustin Cormany of Peoria, Ariz. rode over the back of Kyle Huttenhow for a side over side flip in turn four for a red flag. Deskins stopped on the backstretch for the next caution flag. The final caution of the race occurred on lap four when Cory Brown crashed in turn two.

With racing underway, Edwards drove away with the lead while Chloe High engaged in a thrilling duel with Phoenix’s A.J. Hernandez and her father Nathan High for second. Edwards navigated through lapped traffic comfortably in the lead. Meanwhile Hernandez made several bids for second on the inside of Chloe High. Eliason charged from 13th to join the battling, using the high side to make maneuvers.

Edwards won the race by over a straightaway advantage at the stripe, while Chloe High narrowly earned second place worth $750. Hernandez, Nathan High, and Eliason rounded out the top-five. Eliason earned $250 from Alisha Dawn Photography for the Hard Charger award along with $300 for the fifth-place finish.

Jacob Tuttle Out Duels Shawn Jones In A Stockton Thriller As Jake Morgan Claims 2022 Hunt Tour Championship

(PETERSEN MEDIA-Stockton, CA)- Shawn Jones looked to be well on his way to his second consecutive win with the Hunt Wingless Tour to close out the 2022 season. Jacob Tuttle had other ideas. Letting it all hang out in the final turn, Tuttle shocked the everyone, including himself, as he made a move to nip Jones at the line and claim his first ever win in a sprint car. While Tuttle celebrated immensely, Jake Morgan was also celebrating in victory lane as he claimed the series crown by simply starting the feature event.

Leading the field to green, Jones was a rocket ship early in the 25-lap season finale. Quickly working his way to a robust lead, Jones looked to have the field covered as he reached the back of the field.

With cars racing two and three wide in front of him, Jones’ pace was drastically slowed and it allowed second running Tuttle, and third running Shane Hopkins to close in on the leader only to see the caution flag fly and take the leaders out of traffic.

When the race restarted, Jones again was able to pull out to the lead, however this early green flag run saw Tuttle and Hopkins keep him in striking distance as the field navigated a rough and tumble racing surface.

Jones slowly opened his lead back up in the waning laps, and again had the field in check, but the back of the pack would shake things up.

As Jones got into traffic, Tuttle was again able to cut into his lead, but time appeared to be running out on any late race heroics.

Taking the white flag as the race leader, Jones still had a solid advantage over Tuttle, but heading into turn four cars slowed the leader down and Tuttle turned down and made it a drag race to the checkered flag where Tuttle nipped Jones be a fraction of a second to earn the win.

As Tuttle clipped Jones for the top spot, Shane Hopkins ran third, Nick Robfogel fourth, and 2022 Series Champion, Jake Morgan ran fifth.

While Morgan was crowned the Champion, Saturday night also capped off a strong Rookie campaign by Mark Hanson and he was officially named the 2022 Rookie of the Year.

A total of 28 cars checked in for the series finale in Stockton, CA and it was Shane Hopkins earning Dependable Crain Fast Time.

Jake Morgan won Benic Ent Heat 1 and essentially clinched the series title by doing so as Jones won Brown and Miller Heat 2, Tuttle King Racing Products Heat 3, and Braidon Moniz won Santomauro Heat 4.

Running fourth in the ‘A’, Robfogel was the Santomauro Hard Charger as he transferred from the ‘B’ and passed 13 cars in the feature event.

Josh Gillis was the MSR Hard Luck Award Winner, and Anthony Snow earned the BR Motorsports P.15 award as well as the Arbo Tec Best Presenting Feature Event Car.

By way of his move at the line, Tuttle earned the Vahlco Wheels Cool Move of the Night.

Justin Sanders wins 6th career SCCT feature/ Andy Forsberg claims championship

Stockton, CA…Aromas, CA’s Justin Sanders fended off a late challenge from Shane Golobic to snag his third Sprint Car Challenge Tour victory of the season on Saturday at the Stockton Dirt Track.

Sanders and the Farmers Brewing Company/ Mittry Motorsports team took home $5,000 for their efforts thanks to extra money from High Sierra Industries, along with the Shop Kyle Larson Bonus Money. It was also his first victory in the 360 portion of the Tribute to Gary Patterson.

At the waving of the Ed Entz green flag it was Sanders who charged into the lead and ultimately pulled away to a sizeable advantage. For much of the contest he was able to put multiple lapped cars between himself and second place Golobic. Towards the end however, Sanders started to get caught up behind the slower traffic, which allowed Golobic the chance to close in.

Golobic got alongside the leader at one point, but Sanders held him off and eventually accepted the checkered flag for his third Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards triumph of the season. It marked his sixth career SCCT win, which places him in a tie with Dominic Scelzi for the second most all-time. Golobic, Fresno’s Dominic Scelzi, Heartland, Wisconsin’s Bill Balog and Oklahoma’s Ryan Timms rounded out the top-five.

Waco, Texas driver Chase Randall had nothing but problems all night long but got them figured out in time to earn the Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Award in the main event, carving his way from 21st to ninth.

Auburn’s Andy Forsberg ran a smooth race and finished in the eighth spot to bring home his first career SCCT championship. He becomes the third driver to do so, joining Kyle Hirst and Ryan Robinson. Forsberg, who also captured the Placerville Speedway title, wins the Russell Motorsports Double Down Bonus, giving him a total of $20,000 for both championships.

The Sprint Car Challenge Tour would like to thank Elk Grove Ford, Abreu Vineyards, Hoosier Racing Tires, Flo Racing, Shop Kyle Larson, Pit Stop USA, Tiner-Hirst Enterprise, BR Motorsports, King Racing Products, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Bianchi Farms, D&D Roofing, Garth Moore Insurance and Financial Services, Quick Time Energy and Mortgage and High Sierra Industries for their support this season.

MADDINGTON TOYOTA SPRINTCAR SERIES

Saturday, November 5, 2022

Dayne Kingshott claimed the second round of the 2022-23 Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series Championship at the Perth Motorplex on Saturday night - and in doing so, claimed his second ever sprintcar feature.

He parked the Krikke Motorsport in victory lane in the City of Kwinana Westernapolis after crossing the line ahead of Robbie Farr and David Priolo.

Earlier in the night Kingshott was quickest in his qualifying group and then he took a third in his heat race, starting the feature race from P3.

Jason Kendrick and Callum Williamson started on the front row after winning the A and B Dashes respectively.

It was Williamson who had the better of the starts and Kingshott quickly elevated himself to second.

Farr, who started from P3, also got by Kendrick early on as the W11 found himself back in fourth spot and under pressure from James Inglis and last-round winner Kye Scroop.

Only a few laps were in the books when Williamson was up into traffic and a couple of laps later the caution lights came on when George Eaton spun in turns 1-2.

On the restart it was Williamson from Kingshott, Farr, Inglis and Kendrick.

On the next green Inglis was on a charge and went under Farr for third, while Scroop and Andrew Priolo had a moment on the approach to the main straight, seeing Scroop head infield with a cut down left rear tyre, while Priolo was able to regroup and continue in the fight.

Inglis was then locked in a battle for second with Kingshott with 10 laps in the book.

With 17 laps to go Williamson spun in the first turn up high on the track and Inglis, who was still in third, had nowhere to go and slid into him backwards.

It was the end of the show for Williamson who looked very strong, while Inglis was able to get a restart at the back of the field.

The next restart saw Kingshott elevated to the lead from Farr, Kendrick, David Priolo and Brad Maiolo.

Priolo was quickly on the back of Kendrick and after running in close quarters for a couple of laps, he made the telling move - and at the same time Kingshott was moving forward while in traffic.

With nine laps remaining Brad Maiolo made the move to fourth over Kendrick, showing plenty of pace.

There was another caution period with seven laps remaining when Troy Lawson pulled up on the back straight after the front left wheel separated from the car.

At this point Inglis was up to eighth, a great effort after he had to come from the back of the field and he was locked into a great battle with Andrew Priolo and Kris Coyle.

Kendrick got the spot back over Maiolo on the last lap to reclaim fourth, but all eyes were on Kingshott who took the popular win.

It was a great result for the W2 that has looked fast in both outings so far this season.

In round one Kingshott dropped a heat and had to start from p21 before he raced up 11 spots to finish 10th.

Farr showed what he is capable of and it was a great start to his WA campaign in the Jason Pryde Motorsport V14.

David Priolo also showed plenty of pace for his podium placing - a great turnaround after also looking fast at the season opener, only to be let down by steering issues.

Kendrick’s fourth means he has banked more solid points, on the back of his second in the first feature race two weeks earlier.

Maiolo’s fifth meant he had moved up seven spots and it is more good points in the bank after he finished ninth at the last show,

Andrew Priolo finished sixth after starting from seven while Inglis, who originally started from p6 and then had to go to the rear of the field, raced up to eighth - a great outcome.

Mitchell Wormall took ninth, moving up five spots, while Ryan Lancaster was 19th, moving up one spot.

Taylor Milling came from p15 to take 11th after earlier in the night he set the Victory 1 Performance Quick Time award.

BLAKE BOWER CLAIMS 2022 WESTERN MIDGET RACING CHAMPIONSHIP WITH VENTURA WIN

Ventura, Calif. (October 30, 2022) – Brentwood’s Blake Bower completed his claim on back-to-back Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction championships on Saturday night, earning his 12th win of the season at Ventura Raceway. The best 12 finishes format leaves Bower with a perfect 600-point score, adding to his incredible run in the series.

Gary Dewitt of Mesa, Ariz., Bower, and Lodi, Calif.’s Nate Wait split the three eight-lap heat races for WMR at the dirt track adjacent to the Pacific Ocean. A zero-inversion placed Dewitt and Bower on the front row for the 20-lap main event.

Dewitt, in his just fourth career start, drove in alongside Bower into turn one but Bower drove into the lead. Todd Hawse of Moorpark anchored a battle for the second position throughout the race up until lap 17, when he was challenged by Wait and Oakley’s Bryant Bell.

Bower drove to a 1.058 second victory while his teammate Bell finished second. Wait held off Nathan High of Goodyear, Ariz. for third with Isaiah Vasquez of Rio Linda rounding out the top-five finishers. Todd Hawse ended up finishing ninth while DeWitt was tenth.

The 12-win campaign for Bower includes a victory at Adobe Mountain Speedway to open the year, five Ocean Speedway victories, two wins each at Ventura and Petaluma, and single wins at Antioch and Marysville.

Although Bower has the championship decided, the rest of the 2022 WMR season is far from over with tight battles throughout the top-ten. Those battles will culminate with the season finale on November 12 at Adobe Mountain Speedway in Glendale, Ariz. for the inaugural Tribute to Billy Shuman paying $1,500 to the winner.

A Classic Night for Hall

By Phil Michell Motorsport Media

Racing returned to the Murray Machining and Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway on Saturday night (October 29) with Round 3 of the Ausloans Finance Strathalbyn Track Championship featuring six racing classes with the main events being the V6 Sprints Zeke Agars Classic, the Blackjack Speedcar Series and Wingless Sprints.

The Zeke Agars Classic is one of the “Triple Crown” V6 Sprints events of the season with 10 cars fronting for action but unfortunately the field was quickly reduced to 8 with a multi car accident in turn 1 of the opening heat. Chris Quinlan slammed the wall hard ending his night while Renee Pfeiler would also be forced out. The accident resulted in a lengthy delay with the heat being re-run later in the night.

When the V6 Sprints returned it was a Nick Hall benefit race as he remained undefeated all night and won the 15-lap final by over 6 seconds. John Pfeiler was the best of the rest as he finished second ahead of Jordan Grillet, Kym Simon, Archie Fabien, Nathan Johns and Brenton Phillips.

The biggest field of Wingless Sprints ever seen at a club event at Murray Bridge contested Round 3 of the Track Championship with 36 drivers in attendance. The heats were action packed with 12 car heats with heat wins going the way of Jack McCarthy (2), Kirby Hillyer, Nate Trewin, Ryan Alexander and Tyson Martin.

After winning his two heat races McCarthy continued his winning form as he led all 25-laps in the final to back up his win from a week prior at Renmark. Second place went to Tyson Martin, who chased McCarthy for the entire race distance, with Ryan Alexander having a strong run to finish third. Mount Gambier’s Mitch Broome, Nate Trewin, Rylan Furler, Darryl Knuckey, Keke Falland, who came out of the B-main, William Caruso and Jordon Bolitho completed the top 10.

Throughout the night there were a number of incidents including Ross Miller, who rolled his #24 machine in heat four in turn two while Harley Alexander rode out a car destroying wreck in turn three after tagging the wall in the A-main. At the time Alexander was charging hard challenging Mitch Broome for fourth with 10 laps remaining.

The Speedcars saw a field of 8 cars in the pit area for the opening round of the Blackjack Series with drivers from four states. The local contingent comprised of four entries including Jack McCarthy and Brendan Zadow, who were both making their competition debut.

The opening heat of the night would see Victorian Nick Parker take the win ahead of Robert Heard and McCarthy while heat two was taken out by Dillon Ghent over Parker and Heard in what was without doubt the race of the night. The 20-lap final would see Parker continue on his winning way as he crossed the line ahead of Ghent, McCarthy, Heard, Brayden Willmington (NSW), Garth Thompson (NT) and Zadow. But post-race Ghent was put back two spots elevating McCarthy and Heard up a spot. The Speedcars will return to the track on November 19.

The second round of the State Series for Formula 500’s saw plenty of action from the 9 drivers who took to the track with Bordertown’s Patrick Merrett taking a surprise win. In all Merrett only led 1 lap but it was the one that counted as he edged out Corey Jones by 0.031 of a second. Third place went to Richard Schmidt who was leading until the final lap when he suffered a front-end failure but he was still able to limp home. Brendan Zadow appeared to be on his way to a convincing win until he rode out a big crash in turn two on lap seven after he made contact attempting to lap the slower car of Ryan Harry.

In the remaining events Mildura’s Darren McCarthy dominated the small field of AMCA Nationals while Lucas Warnett defeated Lachlan Brown and Cameron Smith in the Junior Sedan Top Stars and Summer Gesell was victorious over Evan McAllister and Ryan Burns in the New Stars.

The Speedway action will continue this Saturday night (November 5) with Sprintcars, Wingless Sprints, the SA Modified Sedans Series, Super Sedans, Street Stocks, AMCA’s and Junior Sedans. Currently the Sprintcar nomination list includes the likes of dual Australian Champion David Murcott, Luke Dillon, Matt Egel, Ryan Jones, Daniel Pestka, Hayden Pitt, Steven Caruso and young Victorian Todd Hobson.

 

 

Westfall Repeats as Non-Wing Sprint Feature Winner;

Nusbaum Tops the Modifieds;

Bishop Wins the Sportsman Stock Feature

And Gamblin Is Triumphant in the Hornets

In Final Night of Fall Festival of Speed

At Gas City I-69 Speedway Saturday Night

GAS CITY, Ind., Oct. 23 — Matt Westfall of Pleasant Hill, Ohio repeated his winning ways of Friday night by posting his third non-wing 410 sprint car feature victory of the season at Gas City I-69 Speedway Saturday night. He earned $3,000 for winning the 25-lap main event during the second half of the two-day, fourth annual Fall Festival of Speed, which put an exclamation point on the 2022 season for the quarter-mile dirt track.

Dillon Nusbaum of Warsaw, Ind., was triumphant in the 20-lap UMP modified feature. Andy Bishop of Gas City was the star of the show in the 15-lap sportsman stock feature, while Josh Gamblin of Kokomo, Ind., dominated the 15-lap hornet feature.

Westfall had to pass Anton Hernandez of West Lafayette, Ind., twice before he sealed up his victory on Saturday, but ironically the other three feature winners led every lap of their respective main events. Although all three are stars at Gas City like Westfall in their divisions, it was the first Gas City feature victory of the season for all three too.

Despite big fields and stiff competition, all four feature winners also won their qualifying heats.

Non-Wing Sprint Cars

Westfall started on the pole in the sprint car feature in his familiar yellow Ray Marshall Motorsports No. 33M, which is a DRC chassis with a Gressman-prepped Chevy engine. The team is sponsored by Buckeye Machine, Hempy Water and All Star Performance.

Hernandez, who started second, led the first lap. Westfall took command on lap two, but the pace slowed with three laps down due to the first of two caution flags.

Westfall continued to lead following the restart, but Hernandez powered into first place on lap five with his Benic Enterprises No. 2B. By lap 10 Hernandez had a 1.222-second lead over Westfall, while Geoff Ensign of Sebastopol, Calif., ran in third place followed by Harley Burns of Stearleyville, Ind., and Tye Mihocko of Peoria, Ariz.

Westfall had cut Hernandez’s advantage to just 0.505 of a second on lap 14 when the second yellow waved. Ensign was still third at that point, but Mihocko had wrestled fourth away from Burns on lap 11.

Westfall retook the lead from Hernandez on the restart and led the final 10 laps. He had about a 1-second lead for most of them, but on the last lap Mihocko passed Hernandez to nail down second, and Westfall had a huge 2.046-second margin of victory. Mihocko also finished second on Friday night.

Hernandez finished third on Saturday followed by Ensign and Burns.

UMP Modifieds

Nobody could catch Nusbaum in the 20-lap modified feature. The 2018 track champion lined up fourth, got a terrific start, and led the whole race despite one yellow with four laps down that closed up the field.

Jimmy Hayden of Coatesville, Ind., was second in the early going but he ran into problems with four laps down which brought out the race’s only caution flag. That gave second to Tyler Loughmiller of Brazil, Ind., who chased Nusbaum for the next 15 laps to no avail.

Clayton Bryant of Yoder, Ind., passed Brian Ruhlman of Clarke Lake, Mich., for third at the halfway point and finished in the show position. Ruhlman placed fourth and Todd Sherman of Churubusco, Ind., rounded out the top five in the 20-car field.

Nusbaum’s car is sponsored in part by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts, Head Racing Engines, Weston Skies Travel Agency and Dairy Queen of Plymouth, Ind.

Sportsman Stocks

Bishop started second in the 15-lap sportsman stocks main event in his Thompson Trucking/R & R Transmission No. 14B and led all the way despite several yellows that wiped out his advantage.

Ryan Freeland of North Salem, Ind., ran in second place from the start until lap nine, when Josh Litton of Paragon, Ind., took the runner-up position. Litton couldn’t do anything with Bishop either, and he was 0.556 of a second behind Bishop’s No. 14B at the checkered flag.

Freeland finished third followed by the winningest driver in track history, James Headley of Marion, Ind., and Reece Novak of Gosport, Ind.

Hornets

Gamblin had the smallest margin of victory of all the feature winners, just 0.288 of a second, but he led all 15 laps of the hornet main event with his No. 19 Honda Civic after starting second. The 34-year-old alignment technician’s car is sponsored by Knight and Son Heating and Cooling, Worldwide Jewelry and Pawn, Backyard Builders, City Tire, Uniques by Mary and Jonsey’s Lawn Care.

Gamblin had a big lead of 1.972 seconds over polesitter Kaleb Hinkley of Fremont, Ind., when a yellow flew with 12 laps down to muddy the waters. Jerry Manns of Angola, Ind., was third at the time, as he had taken that spot from Topher Hillman of Camby, Ind., on lap four.

Hinkley ran second for the whole race and finished in that position, just inches behind at the finish. Manns placed third. Jeremy Jones of Gas City passed Hillman on lap eight and finished fourth, while Hillman rounded out the top five in the largest hornet field of the year at Gas City.

Golobic Wins Title, Wise Wins Main

by Ron Rodda

Tulare CA...The Abreu Vineyards 28th Trophy Cup Presented By Rudeen Racing had 75 cars return for the final night at Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway. One driver was to be named champion and earn a guaranteed $28,000 for accumulating the most points.

But four drivers had a chance for a bonus ranging from $22,000 to $2000 dependent on starting in rows nine or ten for the 50-lap finale. If any of those four won the race and title, the bonus earned was based on starting position.

No qualifying was needed as the better of the two preliminary race nights points determined lineups. A trio of D mains moved a dozen to the straight up C main. Four from the C moved to the invert six B main which added four to the invert twenty A main.

After the D mains the top 48 in points competed in six heat races fully inverted by points. These heats were 36 points to win with a three point drop per position.

With heats adding points to the preliminary night points, the top 20 in points moved directly to the A main, 21 through 40 went to the B main, and 41 to 48 were C main bound.

Starting in the A main guarantees $5000 minimum payout for all three nights.

Shane Golobic had the best heat race with a third place finish moving him from third to first in points, making him the driver eligible for a $50,000 payout to win. Tyler Courtney finished fourth in his heat to maintain second in points and eligible for a $40,000 check to win the main and title.

Kyle Hirst dropped to third in points by finishing sixth in a heat and would collect $35,000 for winning the main and championship. Corey Day and Ryan Timms remained in fourth and fifth.

The big finale had Tony Gomes and Zeb Wise on the front row for the 150 points main with a three point drop per position.

Wise led initially with Gomes and Kalib Henry in pursuit. Henry passed Wise on the front stretch on lap 14 and led five laps before Wise used a turn two slider to regain the lead. Chase Randall got third with a low line turn one pass on lap 26.

The planned fuel stop came after 29 nonstop laps and Golobic was 10th and Courtney 14th but the point battle doesn't become clear until the lap count gets into the final ten. If the title battle came down to those two whoever was ahead of the other would win.

Wise continued leading while Henry held off pressure from Randall for second until Gomes took third back before a red flew for a Tim Kaeding and Kyle Hirst tangle that eliminated both.

As the lap count approached 50 Wise clicked off the laps smoothly and kept a late charging Rico Abreu in second at the finish.

The drama centered around Golobic as he was in control of the championship but needed to pass four cars in six laps to collect the bonus.

Golobic got past two on a restart but Wise and Abreu were too far ahead to catch and no yellow to help saw Golobic finish third from his 20th starting spot.

Golobic became a three time Trophy Cup champion. Corey Day was fourth in points, Courtney third. Wise fourth, and Abreu was fifth.

The Trophy Cup continues to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation with a $321,000 donation to raise the total to $2,671,000. This is made possible by many contributors and activities as well as all entry fees going to support the Foundation.

Derek Locke Wins Dutch Hoag Memorial at Outlaw, Davie Franek Claims 2022 PST Championship

By: Steven Petty

DUNDEE, NY… The 20th season of the Patriot Sprint Tour came to a close on Friday night at the track that has hosted the most Series races of all time, the Outlaw Speedway in Dundee, NY, and it was Mechanicsburg, PA, Derek Locke picking up the $3500 top prize in the Dutch Hoag Memorial. Also on the card was the rescheduled 2021 Fall Nationals.

Kyle Drum and Derek Locke were on the front row for the 25-lap Dutch Hoag Memorial, with Drum taking the lead ahead of Locke, Jared Zimbardi, Jordan Thomas, and Paulie C. Derek Locke would take the lead away on lap six. Darryl Ruggles hit the berm in turn two, lost the front end, and ended up barrel-rolling. Jordan Thomas suffered a broken front wing after contacting Ruggles as the red was displayed. Ruggles climbed out of his car under his own power. On the restart, Locke would continue to show the way, as Colagiovanni would take second place away from Drum. Colagiovanni would quickly reel in and challenge Locke for the lead. The leaders would hit lap traffic just past the halfway mark, allowing Davie Franek to move into the top three after passing Jared Zimbardi. Franek would reel in Colagiovanni late, but Colagiovanni would hold him off. A late-race caution for Matt Tanner and Steve Glover would set up a one-lap shootout to decide the Dutch Hoag Memorial. Derek Locke would hold off Colagiovanni and Franek to score the feature win. Franek would clinch the 2022 Patriot Sprint Tour Championship with his third-place finish. Jared Zimbardi and Kyle Drum would complete the top five.

“I wish I lived closer to race with the Patriot Sprint Tour more often,” explained Locke in victory lane. The car was a rocket, and it could race anywhere we put it,” Locke said.

“It was cool to race with Derek (Locke) as we don’t get to do that often.,” said third-place finisher and PST Champion Davie Franek. “We’ve been at it since January in Florida, so it was a long season, but we worked hard and I have to thank my crew for sticking it out all year,” Franek said.

“Our car was fast, and I felt like we were just as good as Derek (Locke), but we ran out of laps,” said runner-up finisher Paulie Colagiovanni.

The rescheduled 2021 Fall Nationals feature was led to the green flag by Joe Trenca and Dave Axton, with Dave Axton leading Jonathan Preston. Preston would take the lead on lap three, just as Paulie Colagiovanni would take over third from pole sitter Joe Trenca. Davie Franek spun in turn two to bring out the caution on lap eight after making contact with the wall. On the restart, Preston would take off in the lead ahead of Colagiovanni. Colagiovanni would use the outside of the track to take the lead away on lap eight. Joe Trenca would move into third place on lap 11. Colagiovanni would pull away to score the victory.

The 2022 season will officially conclude on December 3, 2022 with the PST Banquet held at Vernon Downs.

Westfall Wins Non-Wing Sprint Feature;

USAC SpeeD2 Midwest Thunder Midget Season Finale to Gehrke;

And Cromer Triumphs in the Non-Wing Micro-Sprints

In Opening Night of Fall Festival of Speed

At Gas City I-69 Speedway Friday Night

GAS CITY, Ind., Oct. 22 — Matt Westfall of Pleasant Hill, Ohio earned his second 25-lap non-wing 410 sprint car feature victory of the season at Gas City I-69 Speedway Friday night to highlight the opening night of the track’s two-night season finale, the fourth annual Fall Festival of Speed.

Chett Gehrke of Bardtown, Ky., was victorious in the 20-lap Performance Electronics USAC SpeeD2 Midwest Thunder midget feature, which was the season finale for that series.

Dylan Cromer of Flora, Ind. won the 20-lap non-wing micro-sprint main event to conclude the night’s action on the quarter-mile dirt oval.

The Fall Festival continues with the track’s season finale tonight (Saturday, Oct. 22), featuring non-wing sprint cars, UMP modifieds, sportsman stocks and hornets.

Non-Wing Sprint Cars

Young Jack Hoyer of Frankfort, Ind., started second and led the first 12 laps of the 25-lap sprint car feature in Paul Hazen’s famous Physical Medicine Consultants No. 57. He was able to build up nearly a 1-second lead over Tye Mihocko of Peoria, Ariz., despite two yellow-flag periods that slowed the pace. The first caution was for a two-car tangle between Turns 3 and 4 with seven laps down that left Clayton Rossman of Wadsworth, Ill. stranded, while the second flew with 10 laps down when Travis Hery of Hlliard, Ohio stopped on the backstretch.

Mihocko put the nose of Jamie and Michelle Paul’s High Asspirations Farms DRC in front a couple of times but he didn’t lead a lap until he made a pass stick coming out of Turn 4 and onto the frontstretch on lap 13.

Mihocko led lap 14 too, but as he, Hoyer and Westfall were three wide coming out of Turn 4 to complete lap 15, Westfall used the middle groove to vault from third and into the lead with his Ray Marshall Motorsports No. 33M DRC Gressman Chevy, which is sponsored by Buckeye Machine, Hempy Water and All Star Performance.

It was the winning move.

Westfall started eighth, cracked the top five on lap nine when he passed both Jake Swanson of Anaheim, Calif., and Kyle Shipley of Lebanon, Ind., to take over fourth, and moved into third on lap 11 by passing Anton Hernandez of West Lafayette, Ind. Once in front he led the rest of the way to join track champion Scott Weir of Marion, Ind., and Mihocko as two-time winners this season at Gas City, although there were still fireworks to come.

Westfall had just a 0.392-second lead over Mihocko followed by Swanson, Hernandez and Hoyer on lap 23 when the third yellow flew after Corbin Gurley of Hebron, Ind. slowed in Turn 4 and rolled to a stop on the frontstretch near Turn 1.

Westfall was just 0.291 seconds ahead of Mihocko when the fourth yellow flew with 24 laps down and dashed the hopes of two drivers for top-five-or-better finishes. The first driver was Hoyer, who stopped with mechanical difficulties while running fifth. The second one was Hernandez, who was fourth but going for the lead when there was contact between he and Swanson on the backstretch. Hernandez’s Benic Enterprises No. 2B DRC left on the back of a wrecker with left-front damage, including a broken front axle.

The set up a green-white-checkered finish with 24 laps down. The top five for the restart were Westfall; Mihocko; Swanson; Zack Pretorius of Yorktown, Ind., and Rylan Gray of Greenfield, Ind., and they finished in that order. Westfall’s margin of victory was just 0.403 seconds.

USAC SpeeD2 Midwest Thunder Midgets

Matt Lux of Shelbyville, Ind., started second and led the first three laps of the 20-lap USAC SpeeD2 Midwest Thunder midget feature. Drew Rader of Findlay, Ohio brought out the first of three yellows with three laps down when he spun on the frontstretch near Turn 4.

Jakeb Boxell of Zanesville, Ind., who started third, used the low groove coming out of Turn 2 to pass Lux following the restart. He led laps four through seven.

Bryce Massingill of Troy, Ohio, who started fourth, passed Boxell to lead laps eight through 14, surviving a restart with nine laps down after Issac Chapple of Willow Branch, Ind., stopped low in Turn 2.

Alex Watson of Columbus, Ohio brought out the third yellow when he spun in Turn 4 with 14 laps down.

There was a three-car war for the lead on the restart between Massingill, Gehrke and Jerry Coons Jr. of Greencastle, Ind., and Gehrke, who started fifth in the Fedorczyk Motorsports No. 21, came out on top. The No. 21 is a Ripper chassis with a MWR engine out of Warren, Mich., and it’s sponsored by CP Mobil Shrink Wrap.

Coons, who started way back in 17th position, got second at that point. The USAC Triple Crown champion tried both the high groove and the low groove in attempts to pass Gehrke, but he was directly behind him, 0.433 of a second back, when the checkered waved.

It was a stirring runner-up finish for Coons, who broke into the top 10 when he got ninth on lap four and the top five when he got fourth on lap eight. He set the fastest lap of the race and was the PPC Performance Powder Coating hard charger.

Series champion Stratton Briggs of Anna, Ohio started eighth and finished third, as he passed Massingill for the final podium position on lap 17. Massingill hung on for fourth and Boxell finished fifth.

Non-Wing Micro-Sprints

Cromer had a perfect night with his micro-sprint, which is sponsored by NTK. He topped his qualifying group, won his heat, won the dash, and then won the 20-lap feature, setting the fastest lap of the race in the process.

Cromer started fifth in the feature but took the lead after just one lap, which was led by polesitter Easton Zent of Churubusco, Ind.

Cale Coons, Jerry’s son, started third but passed Parker Leek of Warsaw, Ind., on lap five to take second.

There was just one yellow, which flew at the halfway point after Duane Noe of Reynolds, Ind., spun in Turn 4 while running seventh. That tightened up the field, and two laps after the restart Coons was right behind Cromer.

Cromer was able to increase his lead later, however. He had a 1.709 second advantage over Coons, who became the second member of that family to take runner-up honors Friday night. Leek finished third followed by Mike Landis of Logansport, Ind., and Michael Magic of Winder, Ga.

Red Flags

Jim Jones of Indianapolis flipped high between Turns 3 and 4 during the third D2 midget qualifying group with two laps down. He got out of his midget under his own power, but his car was done for the evening.

Paul Dues of Minster, Ohio flipped in Turn 2 at the start of the first sprint heat, doing several revolutions in mid-air. He got the wind knocked out of him, but after a short pause he climbed out of his sprint car under his own power, and he went on to compete in the second sprint B-main.

Ryan Thomas of Indianapolis flipped between Turns 1 and 2 at the start of the second sprint heat, also escaping unhurt. He also returned to compete in the second sprint B-main.

Sunshine Claims Night Two Of Trophy Cup

by Ron Rodda

Tulare CA... The second preliminary night of the Abreu Vineyards 28th Annual Trophy Cup Presented by Rudeen Racing had 84 winged 360s in action at Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway Friday night.

Thursday's format was repeated and drivers raced hard to win a heat or be the highest point car following eight intense laps.

The A main inverted twelve by points putting 21-year old Kalib Henry and 16-year old Chase Randall in row six for the 30 lap, $4000 to win race, adding 100 points to the night's total for the win with a two point drop per position.

Justin Sanders wasted no time, blasting out of turn two to lead initially from fourth starting. Colton Hardy was second for a lap before Tanner Holmes took the spot to chase Sanders.

Tyler Courtney used the bottom of turn two to take third on lap ten and by mid-race the fast lane moved up to the wall, a Tulare tradition that leaves no room for error. Kyle Hirst, Thursday's point leader, dropped out with engine issues.

Tanner Holmes dove low into turn three and got under Sanders to take the lead on lap 16, Courtney grabbed second two laps later, and Sanders found the turn two wall for the second night and was able to continue.

Tim Kaeding moved up to third on the restart and immediately pressured Courtney for second. Corey Day used a low turn two pass to run third on lap 29 before Kalib Henry brought out a red.

It was now a 31 lap main and Holmes, a nineteen-year old from Jacksonville, Oregon had to keep Courtney behind him for a pair of laps.

Courtney used a turn one slider to take the lead on the restart, lost the spot a lap later in turn two, but raced out of turn two to gain the win over Holmes. Corey Day, Tim Kaeding, Shane Golobic finished the top five.

Bud Kaeding. Jake Andreotti, Colton Hardy. Chase Randall, and Cole Macedo completed the top ten.

Drivers will use the better point total from each preliminary night to determine the heat race lineups on Saturday.

The top 48 in points will race six heats, fully inverted, for points and the top 20 in points after the heats go to the A main. Preliminary mains will follow, leading to the 50-lap championship main which inverts 20 by points.

Top ten in points: Kyle Hirst. 278 Tyler Courtney. 278 Shane Golobic. 277 Corey Day. 273 Ryan Timms. 271 Tanner Holmes. 269 Tim Kaeding. 268 Chase Randall. 263 Rico Abreu. 259 Mitchell Faccinto. 258

Timms Collects Trophy Cup Opening Night Win

by Ron Rodda

Tulare, CA..Ryan Timms took the lead on lap one of the 30 lap main event on Thursday and claimed the opening night win along with $4000 plus the valuable points at Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway. Points earned in qualifying and heat races added to main event points put Timms in fifth place out of the 86-car field.

The field was split into two groups for qualifying and heat races and then combined for main event lineups. Qualifying gives 150 points to the quickest lap with a one point drop per position. Heat races offer 36 points for a win with a three point drop per position.

Each group ran four heats and the winner and highest point car from each moved directly to the A main while each of a pair of B mains elevated four additional drivers to the night's finale. Heats and B mains inverted six and the main event had a twelve car inversion, all by points.

The A main is 100 points for a win with a two point drop per position. A sweep would be 286 points.

Entering the main Carson Macedo, Shane Golobic, and Kyle Hirst we're the top three in points. Since Macedo will be in Pennsylvania Saturday, he will not be finishing the Trophy Cup.

Ryan Timms and Landon Brooks filled the front row it was a short time in front for Brooks as a snapped axlet left him sitting after one quarter of a lap. Tony Gomes inherited the outside front row spot

Timms edged Gomes at the line on lap one and pulled away. Justin Sanders took 2nd using the bottom of turns three and four to claim second on lap three. Hunter Scheurenburg slowed after six laps with engine issues and Tyler Courtney took third out of turn four before a multi-car tangle in turn one drew a yellow.

Trophy Cup restarts are all single file and Timms maintained his lead and fourteen nonstop laps saw Sanders close on Timms but then drop back.

Sanders got into the turn two wall and flipped to promote Courtney to second and Kyle Hirst into third with six laps remaining.

With clear air Timms controlled the final laps to win over Courtney, Kyle Hirst, Shane Golobic , and Carson Macedo.

Friday's action will mirror the opening night's format except the 2nd group from Thursday qualifying will go first and the order within each group is reversed.

J.J. Henes celebrates Saturday night at Lorain Raceway Park.

SOUTH AMHERST, Ohio (Oct. 16, 2022) – J.J. Henes did all he could Saturday night during the Must See Racing Midwest Lights season finale, but it wasn’t enough to stop Cody Gallogly from winning his first series title.

Henes took the victory at Lorain Raceway Park, his series leading third of the season, after passing recent Must See Racing national sprint car champion Charlie Schultz at the halfway point of the 30-lap feature at the third-mile paved oval.

With a daring, three-wide pass in lap traffic, Henes swooped around Schultz, grabbed command of the race and never looked back from that point on.

In a caution-free run, Henes went on to victory over Schultz by a dominant 4.806-second margin.

However, Gallogly did what he had to do after entering the night with a near-insurmountable 36-point lead. He finished a comfortable third in the race to officially secure the championship over Henes.

Two-time season winner Andrew Bogusz was fourth in the race to put a bow on his stellar first season in a sprint car, likely securing rookie-of-the-year honors with his efforts in the Lorain finale.

Joshua Sexton closed out the top five, followed by the retiring Junior Gould, who started on the pole for Saturday’s feature and was honored on the parade lap for his final planned start as an owner/driver.

Gallogly set fast time in qualifying, a lap of 13.265 seconds, to start the night. Charlie Baur and Schultz split the pair of eight-lap heat races prior to the main event.

The top Must See Racing Midwest Lights competitors will be honored for their exploits during the season-ending banquet this winter. More details will be shared when they become available.

The finish:

1. 36-JJ Henes, 2. 9s-Charlie Schultz, 3. 27-Cody Gallogly, 4. 17-Andrew Bogusz, 5. 8a-Joshua Sexton, 6. 65-Junior Gould, 7. 23-Charlie Baur, 8. 21-Dale McQuillen, 9. 92-Sawyer Stout, 10. 45-Bob Komisarski.

 

 

DRAKE EDWARDS WINS SECOND VENTURA FEATURE OF SEASON WITH WMR

Ventura, Calif. (October 16, 2022) – Surprise, Ariz.’s Drake Edwards won his second Western Midget Racing Ventura Raceway feature of 2022 on Saturday night, topping a 16-car field in the 20-lap feature by the Pacific Ocean. Edwards drove the No. 86D Boss Chassis to the win.

An 11-car invert lined up the Arizona drivers of Gary Dewitt and Edwards on the front row. Dewitt was one of several cars who had their race end prematurely on lap eight. Roseville’s Josh Young and Santa Cruz’ Logan Mitchell were also among those who were unable to continue after lap eight.

After some close racing, Edwards began to stretch his advantage in the closing stages of the feature. He topped Shon Deskins of Waddell, Ariz. by 2.2 seconds at the checkered flag. 2021 WMR feature winner Randy Moody finished third followed by AJ Hernandez of Phoenix with his fourth Ventura top-five of the season. Moorpark’s Todd Hawse finished fifth. Todd Hawse, Las Vegas’ Kyle Hawse, and Cory Brown won the heat race competition before the feature.

LOGAN ROBERSON WINS FROM 12TH AT LERNERVILLE & TAKES THE $15,000 HOVIS RUSH LATE MODEL FLYNN'S TIRE TOUR TITLE; BEN EASLER CAPS OFF RUSH SPORTSMAN MOD WEEKLY CHAMPIONSHIP WITH FLYNN'S TIRE TOUR WIN; BLAZE MYERS WINS #4 IN RUSH SPRINTS
By Mike Leone

(October 15, 2022) -


(Sarver, PA)... The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Racing Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants participated in the “Steel City Stampede” once again at Lernerville Speedway Thursday through Saturday night. The 14th edition saw three of RUSH's classes spotlighted with Logan Roberson capturing the Late Model Flynn's Tire Touring Series event, while Ben Easler claimed the Sportsman Modified Flynn's Tire Touring Series race and Blaze Myers earned the victory in the Equipment Rental Options Sprint Car Weekly Series special. In addition, Doug Rutana was the lucky recipient in the Chevrolet Performance 602 Sportsman Modified complete engine giveaway presented by Sara Cipriano of Waterstone Mortgage of Hermitage, Pa.

Twelfth starting Logan Roberson emerged victorious after going fourth to first on a last lap restart in the 30-lap RUSH Late Model feature that had five different leaders with three of them coming in the final three laps! Roberson earned $3,500 for his first career Lernerville win and became the 12th different winner in 14 "Steel City Stampede" events; however, more importantly his season's sixth win on the Flynn's Tire Touring Series earned him the $15,000 championship!

"This means so much," acknowledged the emotional 25-year-old Waynesboro, VA winner and champion. "This is pretty much what we do for a living. This whole week I was under pressure and didn't get much sleep because we haven't done well the last couple events. I knew everything came down to this night and it had to be perfect for me to win it. Damn- my guys gave me a hell of a car and I just drove the thing and tried to make the right decisions. There was a couple times I could have taken it in there, but told myself not to, run my race, and keep my head on straight and damned if it didn't work out!"

2017 champion Bryce Davis led the first four laps before 2016 champion and fourth starting John Waters drove under Davis in turn two for the lead. One lap later, Michael Norris performed the same move on Davis for second. A three-car accident occurred right in front of Waters on lap nine; Waters made contact and kept going. On the ensuing restart however, Waters struggled with most likely a tire going down from the prior contact and then Norris made contact, which crumpled his nose. Norris inherited the lead for the restart, but faded before exiting the race.

Davis regained the lead on lap nine over Josh Ferry over Chad Homan. Over the next several laps, Ferry would lose second to Homan, third to Jeremy Wonderling, and fourth to Roberson. Davis stretched his lead to nearly four seconds when he caught lapped traffic on lap 16. Davis and the lapped car of Jim Rasey made contact on the backstretch, which allowed Homan to close right in on Davis by the time he was back up to speed. A caution for Joe Martin slowed action with 17 laps completed.

When racing resumed on lap 18, Roberson passed both Wonderling and Homan for second. Davis stretched out his lead to over 1.1 seconds by the time he caught traffic again on lap 24; however, the lead was erased again when Clinton Hersh, who had worked his way from 21st to fourth, spun to bring out the caution with 26 laps recorded. Back under green, Wonderling surged into second and then would get a shot alongside Davis after another caution. Wonderling, the 2018-2020 Tour Champion, made the pass on the restart and appeared headed to an unprecedented fifth straight win when a three-car accident slowed action one last time with 29 laps completed.

When racing resumed, Davis used the outside on the restart as he appeared to make the winning move on Wonderling; however, slipped high in turn two as Roberson snuck past Homan, Wonderling, and Davis with the thrilling move. Roberson became the fourth and final different Touring Series champion that led in the wild event! Roberson's Gunter's Honey/Clary's Used Cars/RBS Auto/All About Wraps-sponsored #17 took the checkered flag first by 0.484 seconds for his eighth career Flynn's Tire Tour victory.

"When they gave us the green and white together I said I'm going for it," explained Roberson. "As soon as they slid up in (turns) one and two, and I accidently gave Jeremy (Wonderling) the door, but I'm sure he would have done the same thing. I expect it back from him, but this is just an awesome feeling. This is a reward for everything my family has been through. I just can't thank all my help enough. I have so many people that stand behind me and I have to thank Vicki (Emig) and Mike (Leone) for this Series."

Not only did Wonderling come up one-lap shy of setting a record with a fifth straight Tour victory and overtaking Martin for second in points, but slipped to fifth at the finish as Davis, Homan, and brother Brady Wonderling all got by. For Davis, it was the second straight year he finished runner-up at the event to the champion as last year it was Kyle Hardy victorious. Davis earned $1,750 for his best Tour finish of the season as he just missed out on a complete sweep of the weekend.

Homan was third for his third podium finish of the season as he finished in the top six in all seven Tour starts! Brady Wonderling was fourth for the second time in three races as it was his fifth top five of the season. Jeremy Wonderling's fifth was his 11th top five of the season to earn third place in points for the second straight year. Tim Shaffer was sixth for his third top 10 in four starts this year. Ferry faded to seventh. Matt Latta was eighth for his 11th top 10 of the year. Brothers Brian and Jason Knowles finished ninth and 10th respectively as Brian earned the $50 Precise Racing Products "Pedal Down" Hard Charger gift card for passing 13 cars.

Andy Spooner led all eight non-stop laps of the D&V Jewelers Non-Qualifier event to become the amazing 64th different winner in 76 races run all-time! An elated and emotional Spooner earned $200 aboard the Everly Trucking/A&R Trucking/Addison Farm Equipment-sponsored #85. "I can't believe this," said the 43-year-old Morgantown, WV driver. "This means so much. I'm the happiest man at the track tonight. I have to thank my entire team. We've struggled with this car all year, and to win and stand in victory lane at Lernerville Speedway is amazing!"

Thirteen-time Lernerville Pro Stock winner, Joey Zambotti III, was second in his first RUSH Late Model start of the year and also received a $100 Performance Bodies gift card for being the first feature non-qualifier. Jacob Peterson was third. Twelve-year-old Brock Pinkerous was fourth in his first RUSH Tour start ahead of Jacob Wilber, who made his first ever Late Model start for the former Street Stock racer.

Davis earned his first $100 FK Rod Ends "Shock the Clock" Qualifying award of the season with a lap of 17.209 on Friday night over the 31-car field. Picking up $25 FK Rod Ends heat race wins were Davis, Shaffer, Norris, and Jeremy Wonderling, while Hersh won the last chance B main Davis also won his first Sunoco Dash of the season and received a $100 Sunoco fuel card. Also receiving $100 Sunoco fuel cards in random drawings were Tour racers Roberson and Brandt Graham, while the $50 Sunoco fuel cards went to Kurt Stebbins, Ferry, Jason Knowles, and Will Thomas III.

Ben Easler opened the season for the Hovis RUSH Sportsman Modified Flynn's Tire Touring Series at Sharon by winning his first ever in Tour competition and closed out the year winning the finale at Lernerville. Easler, the 2021 "Futures Cup" Champion, passed Jordan Ehrenberg on lap 11 and went uncontested for the 25-lap feature win worth $800 as he became the ninth different winner in nine "Steel City Stampede" events! More impressively, Easler, who already won the $1,000 Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series Championship, was able to earn the $3,500 Hovis Weekly Series Championship with his sixth overall win of 2022!

"This feels very relieving," expressed the 16-year-old Conneaut (PA) High School football quarterback. "I didn't think I was going to be (standing) here today. I had a football game and made it here just in time here to run the heats last night. I got lucky enough to draw the pole and to end up winning- I'm just so blessed to be here. It feels really good to win this Series. It's something I wanted to do since we started running it and I'm very happy to get it done in year two. We had some wins in karts, but this is way cooler than anything we did in karts. I have to thank my dad for driving me everywhere between racing and football, my family, all my sponsors, the Kings, RUSH and Lernerville for putting this on, and the fans."

Doug Rutana, who earlier in the day won the engine package giveaway valued at $11,000 from Sara Cipriano of Waterstone Mortgage with special thanks from MSD Performance, Holley Performance, Schoenfeld Headers, and Ingram Engines, led the first three laps in search of his first career win. Ehrenberg though overtook Rutana on a restart on lap four and now was hoping for his first career RUSH win. Ehrenberg maintained the lead until slipping high in turn four on lap 11 allowing Easler to make the winning pass.

The last 17 laps went caution-free as Easler's seventh career RUSH Sportsman Modified win came by 1.735 seconds in the Jason Easler-owned, Crawford Custom Consulting/Titusville Ford/Pore's Bodywax/Espyville Heating & Air/Tanner Southern Auto Parts/Latta Bros. Racing/Russ King Racing/Smokin J's Country Corner Inn/Lakeside Lanes/Happy Hill Farms-sponsored #02.

Seventh starting Kole Holden, a five-time 2022 RUSH winner, passed Ehrenberg for second on lap 13 to secure the runner-up position. Sixteen-year-old Ayden Cipriano, who earlier in the night finished third in the Big-Block Modified feature with a "358" small-block, went eighth to third after getting by Ehrenberg on lap 14 as the 2020 "Futures Cup" Champion was able to capture the Flynn's Tire Touring Series Championship! Ehrenberg slipped to fourth, but it was his season's best finish in 19 races! Preston Cope was fifth.

Doug Rutana dropped to sixth over Dalton Gabriel, Rob Kristyak, Kyle Martell, and Jacob Rutana. Eric Gabany went 19th to 12th to earn the $50 Precise Racing Products "Pedal Down" Hard Charger gift card. Lucas Canon came back from a spin on lap nine to finish 14th and was selected as the Sherwood Wheels "Man of Steel" recipient. Will Schaffer ran his first race in more than three years, but was the first car to exit the event and was chosen as the TBM Brakes "Tough Brake of the Night" recipient. Heat winners on Friday night were Holden and Ehrenberg.

2022 Franklin (PA) High School graduate, Blaze Myers, capped off his career best season of racing by winning the 20-lap feature for the Hovis RUSH Sprint Cars. Myers got by Chad Ruhlman on the start and beat out veteran, standout racers John Mollick, Gale Ruth, Jr., Ruhlman, and Arnie Kent for his fourth Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series victory of the season. Myers, who won the 2018 "Steel City Stampede" in a RUSH Sportsman Modified, earned his second belt buckle but first in a Sprint Car and secured third place in points.

"I was standing here four years ago and was thankful to be there then but this means a little more to me," explained the 18-year-old racer. "It's just a hell of a thrill driving a Sprint Car around this place in a scary way. The track was slick, but there was a lane of rubber and if you got in there you were good. I didn't know who was behind me or where they were- I was just running my own race and hoping to stay out front. You just learn to deal with the lapped cars. The cost is so inexpensive to run one of these cars and it's honestly one of the best divisions there is in racing. You can almost make money doing this and that's hard to do when you're racing. I have to thank my entire family- I couldn't do it without them along with everyone on this car."

Ruhlman started from the pole, but it was Myers taking off in the lead from the outside. After going fourth to second on the opening lap, Mollick lost runner-up to Ruhlman on lap two and third to Ruth on lap three. Ruth, who had to win and have Ruhlman finish third or worse to have a shot at the title, passed Ruhlman for second on lap four. Mollick then got back by Ruhlman for third on lap nine. Things began to fall Ruth's way as he closed in on Myers each lap and was on the leader on lap 15. In the ensuing laps however, Ruth's championship hopes dwindled as the handling of his car went away and then would lose second to Mollick on lap 17.

Myers then went unchallenged to his fifth career RUSH Sprint Car win, which have come at five different tracks, by 1.160 seconds aboard his J.I. McCall Construction/John Pleger Roofing/Billy's Garage/Linda Lou's Restaurant/Jen Morris-Mays Insurance/ Lowry Auto Body/DiFrischia Recycling/McDaniel & Assoc./J.I.'s Place/Jolley Roofing & Construction-sponsored #43Jr.

Mollick was second over Ruth. Ruhlman's fourth place finish enabled him to earn his fourth $5,000 Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Championship in five years and second straight aboard the Engles Motorsports #68. Kent was fifth for his 11th top five of the season. Nolan Groves, Jeff Metsger, Ryan Fraley, Brian Hartzell, and Tyler Newhart completed the top 10. Heat winners on Friday night were Kent and Myers.

With the exception of three RUSH Late Model special events at Delaware International and Georgetown Speedways in the coming weeks, the 2022 season is now complete for all RUSH-sanctioned divisions. The 2022 RUSH Racing Series Awards Banquet & Dinner will be held in mid-January 2023 at Gatherings Banquet & Event Center in Edinburg, Pa. More information will be released in the coming weeks.

Jade Avedisian Victorious with POWRi National & West/Xtreme Midgets Season Finale
Belleville, IL. (10/15/22) Jade Avedisian would ride the high line with precision in Night Two of the Meents Memorial at I-44 Riverside Speedway on Saturday to capture her second career victory with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League, running in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota, after a thrilling season send-off feature honoring an industry visionary.

Early I-44 Riverside competition with thirty-four entrants of Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League, in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midgets, would see Gavin Miller start quickest with a 10.890-second group qualifying lap as Chelby Hinton, Chase McDermand, Taylor Reimer, and Ethan Mitchell each earned heat racing wins with Cannon McIntosh picking up the semi-feature victory.

Setting the field of top-notch competitors of competition would find high-point qualifier Brenham Crouch roll an invert of six during Intermission to invert the first three rows. Pole-sitter Jade Avedisian would battle front-row counterpart Gavin Miller into the first pair of corners on the opening lap with Jade Avedisian capturing the initial racing advantage as Jonathan Beason, Gavin Miller, Bryant Wiedeman, and Chase McDermand drove in hot pursuit all inside the top five during the first few laps.

Setting sail at the front end, Avedisian would hold over a second advantage over the second-running Jonathan Beason who was in a battle with Bryant Wiedeman as Brenham Crouch and Gavin Miller raced within striking distance as the field would be bunched back together after a lap twelve caution.

Sticking to the super-fast high-line out front, Jade Avedisian would not be denied leading every lap in her quest of repeating feature winner while dealing with lap traffic late in the feature as Bryant Wiedeman closed in the waning stages finishing runner-up by .134-seconds.

Retaining the pace-setting drive for the duration of the feature, Avedisian would emerge victorious with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League, in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota, to earn her second feature win of the season.

“I knew I needed to control my race, I got a really good jump and was able to stick the car on the outside to the win” stated an elated Jade Avedisian in the I-44 Riverside Speedway victory lane.

Bryant Wiedeman would secure a solid runner-up showing with Jonathan Beason holding his way into completing the feature's final podium placement. Daison Pursley would finish fourth as Cannon McIntosh rounded out the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League, in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series, top-five finishers at I-44 Riverside Speedway for Night Two of the Charlene Meents Memorial.

Belleville, IL. (10/14/22) Cannon McIntosh would use precision and a high-side run in Night One of the Meents Memorial at I-44 Riverside Speedway on Friday Night to capture his seventeenth career victory with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League, running in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota, after a thrilling feature honoring an industry pioneer.

Early I-44 Riverside competition with thirty-seven entrants of Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League, in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midgets, would see Brenham Crouch start quickest with a 10.773-second group qualifying lap as Zach Daum, Jade Avedisian, Daison Pursley, and Austin Barnhill each earned heat racing wins with Brenham Crouch and Greyson Springer picking up the semi-feature victories.

Setting the field of top-notch competitors of competition would find high-point qualifier Jade Avedisian roll an invert of four during Intermission to invert the first two rows. Pole-sitter Jonathon Beason would battle front-row counterpart Zach Daum into the first pair of corners on the opening lap with Jonathan Beason capturing the initial racing advantage as Daum, Cannon McIntosh, Gavin Miller, and Jade Avedisian drove in hot pursuit all inside the top five during the first few laps.

Overtaking for the front of the field, Cannon McIntosh would use a high-side move off turn two to grab the lead on lap eight with the first caution displayed on lap eleven for a spinning Austin Barnhill in turn four on the elbows-up racing surface.

Resuming green flag lead after a field-bunching yellow, Cannon McIntosh would continue to show the way as Beason maintained a solid runner-up while attempting to hold off the surge of Daison Pursley with Gavin Miller and Chance Crum all driving inside the top-five.

Retaining the front of the field through late-race drama, Cannon McIntosh would emerge victorious with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League, in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota, to earn his record-tying twelfth feature win of the season.

“It feels great to be back here in victory lane, I feel like we had a great car tonight and just had to hit my marks. Overall, a good night, I’m thankful to be a part of this team and there are a lot of people that make this happen” stated a celebratory Cannon McIntosh in the Port City Raceway victory lane.

Daison Pursley would secure a solid runner-up showing with Chance Crum sliding his way into completing the feature's final podium placement. Jonathan Beason would finish fourth as Gavin Miller rounded out the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League, in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series, top-five finishers at I-44 Riverside Speedway for Night One of the Charlene Meents Memorial.

Zach Daum Wins with POWRi National & West/Xtreme Midgets in DRC Sooner State 55

Belleville, IL. (10/13/22) Zach Daum would hold steady using a low line in the Donnie Ray Crawford Sooner State 55 at Port City Raceway on Thursday Night to capture his twenty-first career victory with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League, running in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota, in the intense feature honoring the Oklahoma talent.

Early Port City Raceway competition with forty entrants of Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League, in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midgets, would see Ethan Mitchell start quickest with a 9.123-second group qualifying-lap as Dominic Gorden, Gavin Miller, Zach Daum, Daniel Whitley, and Cannon McIntosh each earned heat racing wins with Corbin Rueschenberg and Taylor Reimer picking up the semi-feature win.

Setting the field of competitors for fifty-five laps of competition would find high-point qualifier Zach Daum roll an invert of six during Intermission to invert the first three rows. Pole-sitter Daniel Whitley would battle front-row counterpart Gavin Miller into the first pair of corners on the opening lap with Gavin Miller capturing the initial racing advantage as Cannon McIntosh, Daison Pursley, and Brenham Crouch drove in hot pursuit all inside the top five during the first few laps.

Mechanical issues for a front pack-running Cannon McIntosh would bring out the first caution of the feature on lap five taking him from the competition and bunching the field back together with fifty laps remaining.

Cruising out front after the early restart, Gavin Miller would lead Brenham Crouch and Zach Daum for the running podium placement as Daison Pursley and Jade Avedisian battled behind the leading trio.

Overtaking for the front of the field, Brent Crews would grab the lead on lap twenty-five by using the high-side with Zach Daum racing into runner-up as Gavin Miller, Brenham Crouch, and Chelby Hinton all drove inside the top five. Lap traffic would come into play as contact with Gavin Miller would bring the caution on the track while bunching the field back together.

Running two very different lines, Brent Crews and Zach Daum would battle intensely with Crews running high side as Daum snuck around the inside line. Daum would overtake for the front with the low-line showing speed late as Brent Crews would be involved in an accident with lap traffic on lap thirty-five sidelining him for the rest of the feature.

Maintaining the front of the field, Zach Daum would not be denied with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League, in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota, to earn their first feature victory of the season.

“It’s about time really, we’ve been consistent but this win makes it even better. This win feels good for Bundy, I was debating about moving up to the top but I figured the bottom was where I needed to be,” stated Zach Daum in the Port City Raceway victory lane.

Gavan Boschele would secure a solid runner-up showing with Chelby Hinton hard-charging his way to completing the feature's final podium placement. Kyle Jones would finish fourth as Bryant Wiedeman rounded out the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League, in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series, top-five finishers at Port City Raceway for the Donnie Ray Crawford Sooner State 55.

Cole Duncan tames tricky Fremont for $10K Jim and Joanne Ford All Star win

Saturday, Oct. 8, 2022

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Cole Duncan knew track position was going to be everything on a very slick Fremont Speedway Saturday, Oct. 8 for the 15th Annual Jim and Joanne Ford Classic with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1. The Circleville, Ohio driver piloted the Sam McGhee Motorsports #11 to a dash win that put him on the pole of the shortened 30 lap A –main, and other than a couple of challenges in heavy lapped traffic, held on to score the $10,000 payday to close out the All Star’s 2022 season on Great Lakes Truck Center Night.

By taking the green in hot laps, Tyler Courtney wrapped up his second consecutive All Star title and the $80,000 award.

It was the second big payday with the All Stars this season for Duncan who earned a $15,000 win at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio. It was his eighth career series win and the seventh victory of his career at Fremont. He became the third driver to take the Mike McGhee and Associates/XYZ Machining, Lind’s United Auto Glass, Townline Variety, FK Rod Ends, Champion Oil backed machine to a win, joining Parker Price Miller and Anthony Macri.

Duncan built a sizeable lead until heavy lapped traffic came into play by lap 10. Travis Phil closed and on lap 18 drove beside Duncan but could not complete the pass. The first caution flew with just four laps to go gave Duncan a clear track. Other than a caution with two laps to go, Duncan utilized the clear track and clean air to drove to the win over Philo, Kyle Reinhardt, who used the last caution to muscle his way to the podium finish, with Cole Macedo and Zeb Wise rounding out the top five.

“When the track gets like that we were lucky enough to draw the outside of the front row for the dash and it was my job to get a good start there and I didn’t want to let these guys down. Sammy and Kevin and Jim Bob worked really hard this weekend and gave me two really really good race cars. Just so thankful for the opportunity. We had a rough patch through the middle of the year and you almost feel like you are washed up…you can’t do anything right. It was a breath of fresh air to come and just be a driver tonight. I love driving my family car and putting in the work on it but it was really nice and relaxing to just come and drive and we were good from the time we unloaded,” said Duncan.

“I’m so thankful for the opportunity and I wish Mike and Kathy could be here. Mike was telling me all week he was going to be here but I know he’s busy at work. I wish my parents could have been here but I had my wife and Jeff Karshner who is part of my personal team was here so that was pretty good cool,” added Duncan.

For Philo it was the second time he finished second to Duncan in a big money race as he lost the lead late to Duncan at Atomic earlier this year.

“I had a couple of runs there going into three where I probably could have pushed the issue and that’s generally how I race. Cole and I race pretty good together…we’ve been doing this for a long time now. Congrats to Cole…that’s two big races we’ve run second to him,” said Philo beside his Control Design Solutions, Tire Slick, Banshee Graphics, Columbus Equipment backed #5T.

The Fremont Federal Credit Union 305s were split into odds and evens in track points to run a pair of 20-lap features. In the first A-main Tyler Shullick lead the first 17 laps but it was sixth starter and 2022 track champion Paul Weaver who utilized the middle of the track to take the lead and drive to his seventh win of the year at Fremont, the 71st win of his career at the track placing him third on the all-time win list.

“You just have to be smart and not spin your tires. Everyone was on the bottom and I just went up a groove,” said Weaver beside his Steve Brown’s B&B Drain Service, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Seagate Sandblasting, Fostoria Mod Shop backed #31.

“We just had a miserable year and I don’t know why. Last year we won five features here and all we did was freshen the motor during the off-season. I can’t thank Jimmy and Courtney McGrath enough for putting me in this car,” said Stroup beside his Automatic Fire Protection; Level Performance; Advance Auto Parts ; Vantage, MLP Lawn Care and Snow Removal; Sulfur Town Pub, Sherry Stroup at Century 21 backed #10x.

Fremont Speedway will close out the year on Friday, Oct. 14 with the Stock-Tober special featuring the dirt trucks taking on the Oakshade Raceway stock cars.

Corey Day adds the Cotton Classic to growing resume in California

Hanford, CA…Clovis, California’s Corey Day captured an entertaining Cotton Classic on Friday at Keller Auto Speedway, scooping up his second Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards win of the season.

The 16-year-old throttle masher was one of four different leaders in the main event and claimed victory aboard the Meyers Constructors No. 14 machine.

Fresno’s Dominic Scelzi claimed the High Sierra Industries Dash and jumped into the lead at the waving of the Ed Entz green flag in the 35-lap finale. He quickly had company in the form of San Jose’s Tim Kaeding, who was aboard the Works Limited No. 57 during the night. TK ran his customary high line and shot to the lead after a handful of laps.

Hanford’s DJ Netto then made his presence known going from third to the top spot on lap six.

A well-groomed racing surface gave drivers multiple different lines to use in the feature, as fans certainly got their monies worth on this night. Corey Day had been ripping around the top side and charged past Netto for the lead on lap 11. With 17 circuits down Netto then returned the favor, only to have Day get it right back moments later. Netto kept him within sights until the laps started to wind down and Day kicked it into overdrive.

The youngster eventually accepted the checkered flag to add the Cotton Classic to his list of prestigious wins this year. In June, Day also tallied triumphs at the Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial in Placerville and the Pombo-Sargent Classic in Watsonville.

Netto crossed the stripe in second to continue his ultra-consistent campaign with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour. In six starts he has brought home four top-five efforts. Scelzi rounded out the podium, while Tim Kaeding and 14th starter Justin Sanders completed the top-five. Finishing sixth through 10th in the Cotton Classic main event were Shane Golobic, Sean Watts, Tony Gomes, Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Chase Johnson and Joel Myers Jr.

A total of 43 cars competed at the penultimate round of the season for the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards. Hanford’s Mitchell Faccinto began the evening by earning the Bianchi Farms Fast Time Award with a lap of 13.948 around the 3/8 mile clay oval.

SCCT will now get set to cap the 2022 season at the Stockton Dirt Track on Saturday November 5th during the annual Tribute to Gary Patterson.

JOE B. MILLER GRABS MOWA FINALE AT JACKSONVILLE SPEEDWAY

Jacksonville, IL (October 7, 2022) - Joe B. Miller made the most of his trip to Jacksonville Speedway on Friday evening as he walked away victorious after winning the Ron Milton Race of Champions Season Championship event for the Morrow Brothers Ford MOWA Sprint Car Series.

Miller started in the third position in the 25 Lap A-Main and set in behind early leader Scotty Milan before overtaking Milan as the field entered into lapped traffic. Miller’s run to the front also brought fifth starting Paul Nienhiser and Gunner Ramey, who started in the 12th starting spot. As the field navigated around lapped cars, Miller was able to move his #51B virtually anywhere on the -mile. Austin Archdale, who started in the 2nd position, ran inside of the top five before the field slowed for a lap 22 yellow flag. Other drivers who were moving through the field throughout the course of the A-Main included J.J. Hickle and Jake Neuman battled forward in the closing laps to finish sixth and seventh respectively. Trevin Littleton, who started 20th in the field, by virtue of transferring from the Saldana Race Products B-Main posted a 10th place finish, earning the BMRS Hard Charger Award.

Friday’s victory for Joe B. Miller was his third career MOWA Sprint Car Series victory and second at Jacksonville Speedway. He was victorious earlier in the season with the series in a joint event between MOWA and the Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Car Series at Fairbury Speedway.

Entering the night’s action, Cory Bruns held a 26-point lead over Paul Nienhiser in the Championship Point Standings. Nienhiser was able to close the gap by earning a heat race win earlier in the program. His second place finish was enough to surpass Bruns and become only the second driver to win multiple championship titles with the Morrow Brothers Ford MOWA Sprint Car Series.

Feature finish: 1. Joe B. Miller, 2. Paul Nienhiser, 3. Scotty Milan, 4. Gunner Ramey, 5. Shelby Bosie, 6. J.J. Hickle, 7. Jake Neuman, 8. Austin Archdale, 9. Caden Englehart, 10.

Courtney wraps up All Star title with 1st Fremont win to open Jim & Joanne Ford Classic

Friday, Oct. 7, 2022

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Tyler Courtney essentially wrapped up the 2022 Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 title with his first ever Fremont Speedway win Friday, Oct. 7 to open the 15th Annual Jim and Joanne Ford Classic on Custom Metal Works Night.

Courtney, from Indianapolis, Indiana, led all 35 laps for his eighth All Star win of 2022 and the 16th series win of his career. By taking a green flag in qualifying on Saturday, Oct. 8, “Sunshine” will score his second straight All Star title. His win aboard the Clauson/Marshall Racing #7BC Friday was worth $6,000 and came on the series’ 132nd appearance at “The Track That Action Built.”

“I just kept moving the wing back and trying to get traction. Track stayed better tonight…better than it normally does and early in the night we were a little too tight but we didn’t want to free it up because this place just gets slicker as the night goes on. So just trying to stay a step ahead of it is tough. I think before this year and speedweek one of our best finishes here was like eighth or ninth so to come in here at speedweek and run two top fives and then show up here on finale weekend and get a win is just awesome. That’s a lot about my guys and how hard they work. In the off-season and throughout the year they keep making our program better,” said Courtney beside his Nos Energy Drink/ZMAX/Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts backed machine.

“We have Lauren here from Nos Energy Drink. Without her we don’t get to go up and down the road. My brother is home with his wife and new daughter and I’m going there Monday to spend the week with them….my first niece and their first daughter so it’s going to be a cool experience to share with them,” added Courtney.

Second place finisher Justin Peck came on strong the last half of the race.

“We got the fuel load burned down and got the wing back. I told my guys I was going to have to move around and if I can find a line that works I have a shot at the win. I really couldn’t find one…found a little bit of one there when we caught traffic but it seemed to go away pretty fast. Yesterday I said I wanted to finish two steps forward tonight and it was one so hopefully tomorrow we get that other step,” said Peck beside his Coastal Race Parts/Big Spring Car Wash/High Performance Lubricants/HP Engines/RPM Chassis/Speed Toys backed #13.

For Henry, since joining the Rich Farmer team, he has scored a pair of podium finishes at Fremont.

“The past two races we’ve been in this I’ve just been trying to learn. The first week was really good and the second week was mediocre. Tonight we were decent but not as good as Tyler and Justin. I’m really proud of my guys, Rich and Sheldon and Zack and everyone involved with this 29X car and thankful for everyone that has stuck with me through all this the past few weeks,” said Sabo beside his NAPA Auto Parts/Valvoline Oil/Level Utilities/Limo Scene Limo Services/Kiser Sound backed machine.

Courtney built a sizeable lead until entering heavy lapped traffic on lap 10. That allowed Cap Henry and Cale Thomas to close. The feature’s only caution flew on lap 20 and gave Courtney the clear track he needed as he pulled away to a nearly three second lead while Henry, Thomas and Justin Peck waged a great battle for second.

Thomas took second on the restart with Henry and Peck right on his bumper. Henry regained the runner-up spot on lap 23 but Peck took it away two laps later.

Courtney found lapped traffic again with four laps to go but was able to negotiate through for the win over Peck, Henry, Cole Duncan and Zeth Sabo who scored his first All Star top five finish.

The Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks ran two feature events, with the field split odds and evens in the track’s points.

In the first 15-lap feature Fremont’s 2022 track champion Jamie Miller took the lead from Shawn Valenti on lap four and drove to his sixth truck win of the season and the 37th overall win of his career at the track. Valenti, Dan Hennig, Brad Stuckey and Kent Brewer rounded out the top five.

“I like it when the track has this much bite in it. I struggle on slick tracks so this was perfect,” said Miller beside his Fostoria Mod Shop backed #4m.

In the second feature, Jeff Babcock and Dave Gumby Jr. battled side by side the first six laps before Gumby suffered mechanical issues. Babcock drove away to the win and after a tremendous battle for second, Chester Fitch secured the position with Brad Mitten, Keith Sorg and Dustin Keegan rounding out the top five.

“That was a lot of fun racing with Dave. Thanks to all the fans for coming out and I hope everyone has some beer and a good time this weekend,” said Babcock of his Roelle Racing backed #25.

The 15th Annual Jim and Joanne Ford Classic wraps up Saturday, Oct. 8 with the Tezos All Stars battling for $10,000 to win. The Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints will be split into odds and evens in points to run a pair of feature events. Gates will open at 3 p.m. and racing has been moved up to 6 p.m.

GALLOGLY HUSTLES SANDUSKY CAVALCADE FINALE

October 2, 2022 – Sandusky, Ohio – Cody Gallogly dove under rookie Sawyer Stout entering turn three on lap 11, took the lead, and never looked back Sunday evening to put a wrap on the Bev Jaycox Memorial Cavalcade weekend. It was the second of two nights of racing for the Maxima Racing Oils Must See Racing Midwest Lights Series at Sandusky Speedway. It was Gallogly’s third series win of the season.

Gallogly, the current series points leader, opened the strong when he set quick time (16.306). In the process, he set a new Must See Racing Lights track record. Gallogly would draw a 6 for the feature inversion.

Gallogly was strong from the drop of the green. He quickly worked himself into second place by lap 2. After his lap 11 pass for the lead. He would have to hold off Stout on three separate double file restarts. On lap 17, Gallogly stumbled on a restart, and Stout momentarily handed the lead only to take it back exiting turn 2. It was Gallogly’s only serious challenge to have the lead taken away from him.

“I feel like the only place I was able to get Sawyer was on the entry of the corner” explained Gallogly in victory lane.”I had to make a run on entry to have a chance to make a pass. He was fast and he doesn’t make many mistakes even though he’s a rookie”.

“On a restart she stumbled and fell on her face and wouldn’t take off. He got me by a bunch. Thankfully he left me a little roon going into one and I could get back beside him” concluded Gallogly.

With this weekend’s dominating performance, Gallogly now has a firm points lead entering the series finale at Lorain Raceway Park in less than 2 weeks.

Following Gallogly to the checkered were Stout and third place finisher Charlie Schultz.

Heat race wins went to Stout and Andrew Bogusz.

BOWMAN WINS FALL CLASSIC FINALE; DYKSTRA CLINCHES SECOND ACTION SPRINT TOUR TITLE

By Tommy Goudge

PORT COLBORNE, Ont. (October 1, 2022) – Mike Bowman put an exclamation point on his first season of Crate Sprint Car racing on Saturday night at Humberstone Speedway; Bowman dominated the Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s A-Main for his eighth win of the season, while Jacob Dykstra clinched his second consecutive series championship.

Mathieu Bardier and Jonah Mutton drew front row starting spots for the 25 lap A-Main, and Bardier took the lead while Mutton dropped back due to mechanical problems. Bowman methodically moved forward and took over from Bardier shortly after the halfway point. Bowman cruised to victory in the nonstop race which went green-to-checkered in approximately seven and a half minutes. Bardier settled for the runner-up spot, followed by Dale Curran, Brett Stratford, and Dykstra.

Dykstra started the race in row six and needed to finish 12th or higher to clinch his second AST title. Dykstra charged forward and eventually took a fifth place finish. Dykstra finished 28 points ahead of Darren Dryden in the final championship standings, earning $5,000 for the title along with a Pinty’s VIP package for the 2023 Bristol Dirt Race. The top ten drivers in points earned at least $1,000 from the 2022 points fund, including Dykstra, Dryden, Mathieu Bardier, Jonah Mutton, Johnny Miller, Tyeller Powless, Allan Downey, Mike Bowman, Ashton VanEvery, and Brian Nanticoke.

Series officials wish to sincerely thank all drivers, teams, officials, track operators, sponsors, and fans for their support of the 2022 Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s Crate Sprint Car season. A total of 59 drivers participated in at least one AST event in 2022, with four drivers – Mike Bowman (8), Jacob Dykstra (7), Mathieu Bardier (1), Dale Curran (1) – claiming an A-Main victory.

NATHAN HIGH SCORES SECOND CONSECUTIVE WMR WIN AT ADOBE

Glendale, Ariz. (October 2, 2022) – Nathan High of Goodyear, Ariz. earned his second consecutive Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction win at Adobe Mountain Speedway in Glendale, Ariz. on Saturday night.

Tyler High and Dustin Cormany of Peoria, Ariz. split the eight-lap heat races before the 20-lap feature. Cormany and his teammate Drake Edwards shared the front row for the main event over a 12-car field.

Cormany led the first ten laps with Edwards in hot pursuit. Edwards snookered the lead on lap 11. Both cars suffered issues that prevented them from finishing the feature, however, ending a tremendous duel.

High inherited the top spot and never looked back, accumulating a .539 second victory. Stevie Sussex finished second but was disqualified in post-race inspection, however. That thrust Peoria, Ariz.’s Cory Brown into second. Gary DeWitt of Mesa, Ariz. finished third in just his second-career start. Tyler and Chloe High rounded out the top-five.

Western Midget Racing competes next at the Petaluma Speedway on October 8 and will be joined by Winged 360 Sprint Cars, Hobby Stocks, and Mini Stocks.

POIRIER WINS FALL CLASSIC FINALE; BROWN CLINCHES KNIGHTS OF THUNDER TITLE

By Tommy Goudge

PORT COLBORNE, Ont. (October 1, 2022) – Jordan Poirier took the A-Main win on the final night of The Fall Classic at Humberstone Speedway on Saturday, while Mitch Brown clinched his first Pinty’s Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car series championship.

Poirier and Chuck Hebing drew front row starting spots for the 25 lap A-Main, and Poirier quickly opened a lead. Poirier had to tiptoe through traffic on a very slick track surface during the second half of the race and his lead over Hebing shrunk from nearly three seconds to less than one. Nick Sheridan and Paulie Colagiovanni caught up to Hebing though, and the three jousted for the second spot for the last seven laps while Poirier drove away.

Colagiovanni moved past Hebing and Sheridan to take second with less than two laps to go, with Sheridan moving into third. Sheridan attempted to dive low under Colagiovanni down the backstretch on the final lap, but the two made contact which resulted in a broken front axle for Sheridan. Poirier took the win – his seventh in eight career Humberstone starts – followed by Colagiovanni, Hebing, Holly Porter, and row five starter Matt Farnham.

Mitch Brown started the race in row six and needed to finish 16th or higher to clinch his first Knights of Thunder title. Brown moved up and eventually finished eighth; Brown officially finished 42 points ahead of Cory Turner in the final championship standings, earning $5,000 for the title along with a Pinty’s VIP package for the 2023 Bristol Dirt Race and the coveted Knights of Thunder helm. The top ten drivers in points earned at least $1,000 from the 2022 points fund, including Mitch Brown, Cory Turner, Ryan Turner, Josh Hansen, Nick Sheridan, Liam Martin, Jake Brown, Tyler Rand, Paulie Colagiovanni, and D.J. Christie.

Series officials wish to sincerely thank all drivers, teams, officials, track operators, sponsors, and fans for their support of the 2022 Pinty’s Knights of Thunder season. A total of 50 drivers participated in at least one Pinty’s Knights of Thunder event in 2022, with six drivers – Paulie Colagiovanni (3), Ryan Turner (2), Jordan Poirier (2), Mitch Brown (1), Dale Gosselin (1), and Jordan Thomas (1) – claiming at least one victor’s sword.

Hafertepe Tops Final Short Track Nationals at I-30 Speedway!

Lonnie Wheatley, LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (October 1, 2022) – The final chapter in the storied history of Little Rock’s I-30 Speedway clay oval was punctuated on Saturday night as Sam Hafertepe, Jr., took the $15,041 winner’s share in the 35th Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires 41-lap finale atop the high-banked, -mile clay oval.

And the final race at I-30 Speedway concluded in true form with a spirited battle between Hafertepe, Jr., and fellow “Twin 20” STN preliminary feature winner Aaron Reutzel before Hafertepe, Jr., ultimately prevailed.

But after slipping past pole starter Reutzel for the point on the 18th round, Hafertepe’s work wasn’t done as Reutzel battled back and offered up challenges to reclaim the lead including contact at the flagstand with a half-dozen laps remaining to take his second Short Track Nationals title aboard the Hills Racing Cigar Port/Truenorth.bet No. 15h Sprint Car.

“I’m just glad the 8r didn’t win the race after driving people the way he drives people,” a heated Hafertepe, Jr., exclaimed in victory lane. “But guess what, we came out on top and he’s sitting over there.”

After winning the Pack’s Dash for Cash to earn the pole position for the main event, Reutzel gunned into the lead at the outset after picking off both Thursday and Friday night wins as third-starting Hafertepe, Jr., immediately made his way past outside front row starter Dylan Westbrook for second.

Slowed by a pair of cautions in the opening eight rounds for Cody Gardner’s cut left rear tire after five circuits and then Ryan Timms coming to a stop at the top of turn four with race-ending front end damage three laps later, Hafertepe, Jr., stayed in contact with Reutzel in the ensuing laps as the duo broke away from the field.

Lapped traffic came into play after 17 circuits and Hafertepe, Jr., pounced on the lead a lap later in turns three and four to take command.

“I was just waiting for him to mess up, I knew he probably would eventually,” Hafertepe, Jr., explained. “We hit the hole when it got there and just protected the rest of the way.”

He protected effectively enough, denying a Reutzel slider in turns one two on the 32nd lap and then escaping frontstretch contact upon the completion of the 35th lap that resulted in nosewing damage on Reutzel’s RSR Mobil 1 No. 8 machine.

With Reutzel slowed by the incident, Hafertepe, Jr., raced on to the stripe in the final handful of laps to run his weekend earnings to $18,691 with Reutzel settling for runner-up honors.

“I was just a little too conservative early, that hole almost bit me on the first lap so I didn’t really want to go through it,” Reutzel explained. “I knew you could make some speed if you could get through that hole clean, I couldn’t do that and that was what he was executing.”

Even with the runner-up finish, Reutzel still pocketed $15,146 for the three-day weekend.

“It just wasn’t meant to be, but we had a great weekend,” Reutzel wrapped up. “We came down and supported the Clays for the last race, all in all it was a great weekend.”

Little more than a lap away from earning the pole position for the feature before the right front tire came off the bead, California’s Justin Sanders moved from fifth to third by the ninth round and held the show position the rest of the way aboard the Swindell Speedlab Bubbly Brands No. 39 entry.

“It’s awesome to at least get on the podium, I’ll take this third place,” Sanders commented. “I felt really good for a while, I felt like I got in a rhythm until I got to a couple of lapped cars and got my rhythm broken.”

After swapping positions several times with Dylan Westbrook over the early portion of the race, Seth Bergman crossed the stripe fourth with three-time STN winner Blake Hahn rallying from the tenth starting position to round out the top five.

Westbrook was sixth at the line with Wayne Johnson, Jason Martin, 16th-starter Derek Hagar and Garet Williamson completing the top ten.

Sanders posted the best finish among those making first career STN championship finale starts in third with others making their first finale including Steven Russell (17th), Jeremy Middleton (19th) and Timms (20th).

At the other end of the spectrum, Tim Crawley claimed 11th at the line as he made his 25th career STN championship finale in his I-30 Speedway farewell.

With 87 cars on hand for the STN finale, Jeffrey West, Howard Moore, Dale Howard, Wayne Johnson, Middleton, Jack Wagner, Sanders, Williamson and Matt Covington topped heat race action.

Jace Park and Ayden Gatewood topped “D” Mains, Jerry Brey and Blake Jenkins won “C” Mains and Dale Howard and Hagar scored “B” Main wins.

After Samuel Wagner, Landon Crawley and Rick Pringle got upside down in heat race action, Zach Pringle (D Main) and Kyler Johnson (B Main) turned over as well before Joey Schmidt became the final official flip at I-30 Speedway during the second “B” Main.

Wayne County Speedway

ORRVILLE - The proverb “one man’s misfortune is another’s gain” came to fruition Saturday night at the Wayne County Speedway near Orrville.

Wooster’s Sheldon Haudenschild – fresh off a second-place finish at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday – made the five-hour tow westward after Saturday’s National Open fell victim to rain and dominated action in the Pine Tree Towing and Recovery Sprint Car portion that highlighted the two-day Ohio Dirt Blowout at the ultra-fast 3-8-mile oval.

WCS’s 10th annual edition of the extravaganza produced a near-record 167 cars and stars to the paper-clipped shaped speed plant. In the end, however, it was familiar sights that joined Haudenschild in Victory Lane in capping the season- ending events.

Justin Cranmore swept the weekend’s activities by claiming the JoyRide Mini Stock 15-lap feature on Saturday after checkering both 12-lap prelim main events on Friday. Todd Brennan made a rare visit to The County and bagged his second consecutive Dirt Blowout championship by besting a stout field of Malcuit Tavern Super Late Models, while Kyle Moore picked up wins 30 and 31 on the season in winning both the McKenzie Super Stock and Elite Munition Modifieds A-Mains.

Haudenschild’s victory was his ninth of the 2022 season and was worth $3,000. The third-generation star led all 25 laps of the event in posting the triumph, as the 28-year-old now has a Dirt Blowout title to go along with a World of Outlaws win, four All Star Circuit of Champions victories, a pair of Pete Jacobs Memorial trophies, and a BOSS non-wing victory at WCS.

Haudenschild, aboard Bryan Grove’s potent No. 45 machine, outdistanced Washington state invader JJ Hickle and western Pennsylvania stalwart Brandon Spithaler. Newly crowned track champion Henry Malcuit raced home fourth with Tyler Street recording his 10th top-5 of the season.

Two-time 2022 winner Chris Myers finished sixth with Zach Ames, Jason Dolick, Wayne McPeek, and Jamie Myers rounding out the top 10. It was a tough night for a trio of WCS regulars, however, as Danny Mumaw retired to the pits while running third. Ricky Peterson and Trey Jacobs each suffered mechanical woes during the evening and finished 13th and 17th, respectively.

“We knew that (Williams Grove) was probably going to get rained out, so we made a few calls and ended up putting this together kind of last-minute,” said Haudenschild. “The track was just awesome, and it feels great to come back home and race in front the fans here at (Wayne County). I love racing here and hopefully we’ll get another chance to do it again.”

Zanesville’s Brennan started on the pole of the 25-lap, $2,000-to-win Late Model main and needed every ounce of his racing experience in getting his No. 20 to Summit Racing’s victory lane.

Brennan survived numerous challenges from JR Gentry early during the main event, with a caution on lap 18 wiping out his biggest advantage of the race that stretched eight car lengths.

“I kept seeing the red nose (Gentry) underneath me and l knew he wasn’t the only one coming through the pack,” Brennan said. “I saw (Doug Drown) was in third after looking at the scoreboard during that last yellow, but l just concentrated on hitting my marks.”

Drown moved his green No. 12 into second on lap 21 then set sail for Brennan in the closing laps. Drown pulled to the back bumper of Brennan before making a last-ditch effort with a slider in turns 3 and 4 that momentarily vaulted the veteran to the lead. Brennan, though, turned his mount to the bottom and outraced Drown to the checkers for the popular victory.

“All l saw was a flash of green go by and thought ‘man, there’s no way he can stick that,’” Brennan added. “It’s a thrill standing here (victory lane) after racing JR and Doug that hard. They’re two of the best competitors you’ll find and it was clean, hard racing.”

Western Pennsylvania star Matt Lux rallied for third at the stripe with Gentry and Eric Wilson rounding out the top-5 after starting 16th.

After narrowly edging out track champion Doug Hensel in both Friday prelims, Cranmore and Hensel started side-by-side in Saturday’s $800-to-win finale.

As expected, the duo paced the field until Cranmore used a lapped car on lap 6 to gain the lead for good. The driver of the black No. 2 survived a lengthy red flag on lap 13 in recording his eighth victory of 2022.

“It’s tough to win here, and to do it three times this weekend is just awesome,” said Cranmore. “I was a little nervous about being able to hit my marks lap after lap, but more nervous worrying about when and where (Hensel) was going to make his move. This is just a tough, tough division.”

Hensel’s run came to an end in the closing laps, with Matt Reichard, Dusty Long, Thomas Mendiola, and Cody Rush completing the top five.

Moore picked up right where he left off in the Super Stock main and reeled off his 19th win of the season in Bob Daugherty’s 21D. Tyler Wiles kept within shouting distance in his Father’s No. 187 the entire 15 laps but settled for second at the stripe with Brandon Morrow, Braden Tucke, and Friday night winner Rob Melzer.

“Standing here (in victory lane) never gets old,” said Moore. “This track is just awesome to race on, and l think it’s hands-down the best racing surface you’re going to find anywhere. I think we had a little left in this thing, but I just wanted to make good laps and keep it off the fence.”

Melzer garnered his first feature win of the season on Friday after being fast all season-long in his familiar 77.

“Finally,” said Melzer on Friday. “We’ve been good all year and to get a win feels great. Melzer bested John Wilson and Bob Daugherty at the stripe

Moore then jumped into TA Perrine’s 16 Modified, but his 31st win of the season was anything but easy. Moore was shuffled back to seventh on lap two then avoided disaster after tangling with a spinning car on lap 3.

Moore then chased Colton Shaw for the next 11 laps with the duo executing slide-job-after slide-job until taking command for good on lap 12.

“I thought maybe this wasn’t just my night early on,” said Moore. “I’ve followed guys before for a few laps instead of making a move and it’s bitten me a few times. Colton is super-fast right now and that was some pretty intense racing going on out there.

“These Modifieds are really building into a very competitive class, and you’ve got to be up on the wheel. The best part of racing Colton that hard is that we’re very good friends, too. That was a lot of fun tonight.”

Shaw hung on for second with Jimmy Humphrey finishing third and invaders Brad Goff and Chris Hackett rounding out the top five. Tristan Bickford backed up his Friday victory in the “never won” feature by finishing seventh.

A stout field of 21 Micro Sprints made their initial appearance at WCS on Friday with a Todd Reusser notching the victory after starting eighth. It was Reusser’s ninth win of 2022 and was followed to the stripe by Brian Borawiec, Jeff Haefke, Conner Metheny, and James Barkes.

The ModLites presented a field of 18 cars on Friday, with Jimmy Smith capturing victory 19 on the season. Smith outdistanced Teddy Williams, Logan Lewis, Jake Bowman, and former WCS sprint car driver Doug Stanley at the stripe.

The Dirt Trucks were up next and it was all Rolly Heyder as the driver of the Mark Wahlberg-sponsored No. 10 recorded his fifth Dirt Blowout championship. Blake Heyder crossed the stripe in second followed by Andy King, Jamie Heiser, and Vince Wagoner.

Wilson earns 4th Fremont win, Mintz earns track title; Foos scores 305 win, Weaver gets 4th title; Gumby gets 2nd truck win, Miller claims championship

Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Greg Wilson survived five cautions during the final eight laps to claim his fourth Fremont Speedway win of 2022 on Fremont Federal Credit Union Night. With his third place finish Gibsonburg, Ohio’s Craig Mintz wrapped up his fourth Fort Ball Pizza Place 410 Sprint track championship.

Fremont, Ohio’s DJ Foos held off a charging Alvin Roepke to earn his second victory of the season in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints. Paul Weaver clinched his fourth division track title.

Rookie Dave Gumby Jr. of Ottawa Lake, Michigan held off Jeff Babcock to score his second victory of the season in the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks. Fremont, Ohio’s Jamie Miller clinched his first ever division title with a third place finish.

Wilson dominated much of the 30 lap 410 sprint feature, building a nearly four second lead just past half way, but late race cautions, including one with just two laps to go, kept the field close. Wilson was able to drive to his 17th career Fremont win over Foos, Mintz, 16th starter Cole Duncan and Jake Hesson.

“This place is so special to me. I have a lot of mixed emotions. I’m thinking about Rick Eshleman…him and I started racing at Limaland and Eldora and I’m glad I spent that hour with him earlier this year. You never know what people are going through and you never know what the big guy upstairs has planned for us. I feel so blessed to have my family by my side to be in the Seeling Motorsports car. I can’t thank Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics enough for believing in me. We been kind of up and down but when we come here…it’s home and hopefully we bring our A game next week when the Ford Classic is on the line,” said Wilson.

For Mintz, the fourth track title is special as it came on the 50th anniversary of Johnny Auxter’s track title in 1972, a man Mintz has looked up to.

“The last five or six weeks the 16 (Foos) has qualified well and we struggled. We have to get better early on. I love competing with DJ….there’s a mutual respect. Early on we weren’t very good and we just kept getting a little better. At one point I quit thinking about championships and wanted to win the thing. Three or four years ago we marked this on our calendar that this would be the last championship we were going after. We put every effort into this. If you think back if it wasn’t for Auxter I probably wouldn’t be here. There were many fun nights with Johnny working on the car. It means a lot to me and this team and makes it extra special,” said Mintz.

In the 25 lap 305 sprint feature, Foos took the lead from Kasey Jedrzejek on lap five and then held off Roepke after a caution with just four laps remaining to score his 25th career Fremont win.

“I was kind of messing up that last restart. The car was getting really tight. My dad does a really good job on 305 cars and racing in general. I figured my car would be pretty good and it took off really well. So grateful to be in a Clark car…it’s been a dream for a long time to sit in a Clark owned car and I finally got the opportunity with Kenny, Bobby and everybody else involved in this. This is a fun deal. Wish I could get a 410 win this year…always next week,” said Foos beside his Fremont Fence, Nagy Equipment Sales, Advanced Cast Stone, Shelluke’s Bar and Grill, Jimmy Bukkets, Snyder Floor Covering, Kear’s Speed Shop, BRS Shocks, Willey Motorsports backed #8.

For Weaver, winning the track championship came down to avoiding disaster when a lapped car collected him early in the feature. Weaver was able to restart at the tail and drove to a ninth place finish for the title.

“At least I finished the race and survived the night. Early in my career we ran all over the place with the 360s…you had a lot of choices. Unless you have money for a 410 this is where you go to race and it’s worked out,” said Weaver.

Several early cautions kept the field close in the 20 lap truck feature with Jim Holcomb holding a narrow lead the first five circuits before Gumby took command. Holcomb, Jeff Babcock, Jamie Miller and Ben Clapp battled for the runner-up spot until Babcock took second on lap 10. Gumby and Babcock ran side by side the final five laps with Gumby holding on for the win.

“I didn’t notice him (Babcock) until the last three laps when I saw him blow it into turn one and I was like I gotta go. I have to thank the truck owner David, him nephew Tim Baker, his dad Tim, my dad and Ron Miller of course for building the truck and my wife,” said Gumby beside his Ron Miller Race Cars, Get Bent Fab backed #P51.

Miller ran a conservative race to finish third and claim his first ever Fremont track title.

“I don’t like point racing. These championships aren’t easy to come by. I’ve been doing this for a long time and it’s my first one here. This is a tough division. Just to get one of these is quite an accomplishment,” said Miller.

Fremont Speedway will host the 15th Annual Jim and Joanne Ford Classic with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions Friday and Saturday, Oct. 7 and 8. The dirt trucks will be split into two fields – odds and evens in points – for feature-only events with the All Stars on Friday and the 305 sprints will do the same on Saturday. There will be lots of things happening during the weekend at the Sandusky County Fairgrounds.

Cannon McIntosh Cruises to SSMC Win with POWRi National & West Midget Leagues
Belleville, IL. (9/30/22) Cannon McIntosh would hold off the late-race dramatics in Night One of the Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex Fall Brawl to capture his seventeenth career victory with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League with an impressive showing of determination in the intense thirty-lap feature.

Early Sweet Springs competition with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League would see Chase McDermand start the quickest putting down an 11.505-second hot-lap as Daison Pursley, Cannon McIntosh, Dominic Gorden, and Chase McDermand would each earn heat racing wins as Xavier Doney would earn the semi-feature win.

Setting the field of competitors would find pole-starter and high-point qualifier Taylor Reimer battling front-row counterpart Daison Pursley into the first pair of corners on the opening lap with Reimer capturing the initial racing advantage as Dominic Gorden, Brenham Crouch, Gavan Boschele, and Bryant Weideman in hot pursuit inside the top-five during the opening laps.

Holding the front of the field for the first few laps of the event, Taylor Reimer would appear to be the fastest wheelman until a first-corner miscue would send her into the outside wall to bring out the caution and relinquish the lead to a speedy Dominic Gorden.

Keeping the point placement, Gorden would hold down first until the mid-point when Cannon McIntosh used a high-side maneuver to slingshot to the lead of the field with Gavan Boschele and Brenham Crouch following suit.

Maintaining the front of the field after the late-race restarts, Cannon McIntosh would not be denied with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League to earn the feature victory to earn his eleventh victory of the season.

“This became a tricky track; I knew I had to almost use a diamond off of turn four but keep the momentum for the high-side in turns one and two. Gavan was really fast tonight so it was everything I could do to keep him behind me” stated the winning McIntosh in the Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex victory lane.

Staying close in the entire feature by using a low-line precision, Bryant Weideman would secure a solid showing of runner-up with Gavan Boschele completing the feature's final podium placement. One-time leader Dominic Gorden would show speed all event to finish fourth as Karter Sarff would drive past four other drivers to round out the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League top-five finishers at SSMC.

Tanner Carrick wins a thrilling Tyler Wolf Memorial with SCCT in Chico

By Gary Thomas

Chico, CA…Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick and Fremont’s Shane Golobic thrilled the crowd on the final lap at Silver Dollar Speedway Friday night during the 9th annual Tyler Wolf Memorial.

At the checkered flag it was Carrick who fended off the last corner challenge to bring home the $4,000 grand prize with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards. It marked his second SCCT victory of the season to go along with his win at the Mel & Marlyn Hall Memorial in May at Marysville Raceway.

Carrick also captured opening night of the Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals for the second consecutive year. “That was an exciting main event and I hope all the fans enjoyed that one,” Carrick said after the race. “We won opening night of the Fall Nationals last year and I’d love nothing more than to come back tomorrow and sweep the weekend. I have to thank everybody that supports our race team and makes it possible.”

A well-prepared racing surface allowed some of the states top Sprint Car drivers to showcase their skills on Friday evening at the Tyler Wolf Memorial. Several movers and shakers were seen throughout the 35-lap contest. Modesto’s Tony Gomes captured the High Sierra Industries Dash and took command early in the main event. Excellent racing action was seen all thru the field as Shane Golobic, Carrick, Mitchell Faccinto and others tried to race their way forward.

Golobic eventually found his way to the top spot as he searched for his 12th career SCCT victory. At one point it looked like he would ride off into the sunset, but Carrick had other plans and snagged the lead on a restart late in the going. With the white flag in the air Golobic gave it one last stab and attempted a slider in the final corners. Contact ensued however and resulted in Golobic dropping off the surface ever so slightly. Carrick crossed back under and accepted the checkered flag for the big win.

Mitchell Faccinto crossed the stripe in second to cap off a great main event for the Hanford racer. Faccinto found the extreme bottom line to his liking and nearly pulled off a win. Mather’s Kalib Henry, the defending Fall Nationals winner, made an exciting charge late in the race to round out the podium. Golobic and Oregon racer Tanner Holmes finished fourth and fifth respectively. It was an impressive night for Holmes, who brought home his best career SCCT result. Completing the top-10 were Logan Forler, Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Dylan Bloomfield who started 23rd, Gomes, Michael Faccinto and 24th starter Max Mittry.

A stellar field of 67 cars competed on night one of the Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals. Young Gauge Garcia began the night by earning the Bianchi Farms Fast Time with a lap of 11.965 around the quarter-mile.

The Silver Dollar Speedway will cap off Fall Nationals weekend tonight, while the Sprint Car Challenge Tour heads next for the Cotton Classic at Keller Auto Speedway this coming Friday.

BOWMAN AND DYKSTRA SHARE FRIDAY NIGHT ACTION SPRINT TOUR WIN AT HUMBERSTONE

By Tommy Goudge

PORT COLBORNE, Ont. (September 30, 2022) – Mike Bowman and Jacob Dykstra were declared co-winners of the Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s Crate Sprint Car A-Main at Humberstone Speedway on Friday night.

Lance Erskine and Tyeller Powless drew front row starting spots for the 25 lap A-Main; the yellow flag quickly appeared when Powless and Allan Downey made contact, causing Downey to spin and collect championship contender Mathieu Bardier. The contact appeared to damage Bardier’s front end, but his crew made repairs to get him back on track.

Erskine took the lead on the restart, but Bowman quickly advanced to take the lead on lap four with championship points leader Jacob Dykstra in hot pursuit. Another yellow flag was needed for a Sheldon Bender spin which collected John Cadman and Brian Nanticoke, and title contender Darren Dryden used the restart to take third from Erskine.

Bowman and Dykstra made daring moves in traffic as the race wound to a conclusion. Dykstra cleared several lapped cars in turns one and two on the last lap, but it appeared he was going to run out of time. Bowman slowed to avoid Ashton VanEvery’s stopped car in turn four, however, which allowed Dykstra to cross under the checkered flag side-by-side with Bowman. Electronic timing and scoring showed a tie between the two down to the thousandth of a second, leading officials to declare a dead heat. Bowman and Dykstra shared the win, while Dryden, Erskine, and Powless rounded out the top five.

The Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s Crate Sprint Car championship will be decided at Humberstone Speedway on Saturday, October 1. Visit www.actionsprinttour.com for more information.

COLAVIOVANNI TAKES FRIDAY KNIGHTS OF THUNDER WIN AT HUMBERSTONE

By Tommy Goudge

PORT COLBORNE, Ont. (September 30, 2022) – Paulie Colagiovanni didn’t take long to get accustomed to Humberstone Speedway; the driver from Cicero, New York had never seen the track before, but took the Pinty’s Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car series win on Friday night.

Mitch Brown and Nick Sheridan drew front row starting positions for the 25 lap A-Main, and Brown took the early lead. Traffic was looming for Brown, but a yellow flag came out when Jim Huppunen spun and collected Ryan Turner.

Brown had clear track again for the restart, with Sheridan, Colagivanni, row five starter Jordan Poirier, and D.J. Christie in the top five. Brown stuck to the low side while Colagiovanni moved up high; Brown continued to keep Colagiovanni at bay until the red flag came out for Huppunen, who hit the inside guard rail and appeared to flip.

Poirier had advanced to third for the restart, but appeared to clip the inside guard rail exiting turn four; the resulting damage ended Poirier’s race, and his bid to remain undefeated at Humberstone. Colagiovanni pounced on Brown shortly after the restart and led the remainder of the race, although traffic did allow Brown to close in over the last few laps and keep the race in doubt.

The win was Colagiovanni’s third on the Knights of Thunder tour, and first away from Ohsweken Speedway. Brown’s runner-up finish allowed him to pad his lead in the championship standings over Cory Turner and Ryan Turner. D.J. Christie rounded out the podium driving a Glenn Styres Racing entry; engine problems with his own car had previously threatened to end his season. Sheridan and Matt Farnham rounded out the top five.

The 2022 Pinty’s Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car series championship will be decided on Saturday, October 1 in the season finale at Humberstone Speedway. Visit www.knightsofthunder.com for more information.

Reutzel & Hafertepe Split STN Prelim “Twin 20” Honors!

Lonnie Wheatley, LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (September 30, 2022) – The Lone Star State stood strong in Little Rock on Friday night as Texas natives Aaron Reutzel and Sam Hafertepe, Jr., both raced to victory lane in the 35th Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires preliminary “Twin 20’s” atop the high-banked, -mile I-30 Speedway clay oval.

Both drivers secured starting positions among the first three rows of Saturday night’s $15,041-to-win Short Track Nationals championship feature along with runner-up finishers Jason Martin and Seth Bergman. Another two drivers that accumulate the most points from Friday’s prelim action along with Saturday’s heat races will join those four in the Pack Dash for Cash that sets the front three rows of the 41-lap finale.

Eighty-four drivers, the most since the 2013 edition of the STN, took part in Friday’s Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour preliminary card that was split into Programs A and B based upon pill draw.

Program A

After a convincing victory in Thursday night’s 15th Annual Ralph Henson Memorial that was worth $5,646, it was more of the same in the first of Friday’s “Twin 20’s” with Aaron Reutzel racing to another dominating win.

The Clute, TX, native now residing in Knoxville, IA, gridded the feature outside the second row and made the move of the race on the opening circuit when he took the Ridge & Sons Racing Mobil 1/Folkens Brothers Trucking No. 8 Sprint Car to the topside of turns one and two to pull alongside front row starters Jason Martin and Mark Smith.

The trio raced down the backstretch in tight, three-wide-fashion with Reutzel riding the top line through three and four to take command.

He never looked back as he raced to first career STN prelim win and locked himself into his fifth career STN championship finale.

“My guys give me such a good car, I just hope we can do it one more time tomorrow night,” Reutzel commented in victory lane after his 16th overall feature win of the season.

A pair of cautions in the opening eight rounds, including one for third-running Mark Smith when he slowed to a stop, kept Reutzel clear of traffic until the final handful of laps.

Reutzel had little trouble working through a trio of battling cars and cruised on to victory lane unabated.

Railing the high side much of the way, Reutzel occasionally tested the waters on the low side as well.

“I felt like we had a comfortable enough lead that I could search around some and hopefully learn something that will make us better for tomorrow night,” Reutzel explained.

Liberal, Kansas, native Jason Martin tried to keep pace with Reutzel but to no avail and was under pressure from California’s Justin Sanders and Arizona’s Colton Hardy as he encountered the same trio of lapped cars in the closing laps.

Martin was up to the task as he held on to the runner-up slot to lock into his second career STN finale.

After starting eighth, Sanders worked his way into fifth in the opening pair of circuits and ultimately took third away from Hardy on the ninth round.

Fending off Hardy the rest of the way, Sanders set his sights on Martin only to fall short as Hardy crossed the stripe in fourth. Canada’s Dylan Westbrook rounded out the top five with Dylan Postier, two-time STN winner Tony Bruce, Jr., Jeremy Middleton, 19th-starter Garet Williamson and 17th-starter Matt Covington completed the top ten.

Reutzel established the standard in qualifying with a new track record of 11.812 seconds before Mark Smith, Middleton, Alex Sewell and Westbrook picked up wins in tumultuous heat race action. Covington and Chase Porter won the “B” Mains.

Program B

Sunnyvale, Texas’ Sam Hafertepe, Jr., established that he is once again a top contender for Saturday night’s lucrative payday by picking up his fifth career STN preliminary feature win in Friday’s second “Twin 20” main event.

The 2020 STN champion gunned into the lead from the front row outside and kept Seth Bergman and Ryan Timms at bay throughout the frantic, non-stop affair to secure the win aboard the Hills Racing Cigar Port/Truenorth.bet No. 15h, locking into his tenth career STN finale.

“We finished second last night, which was decent,” Hafertepe, Jr., commented. “We made a lot of changes for tonight and the car was a lot better.”

With Hafertepe, Jr., racing to the green flag from the front row outside, Snohomish, Washington native Bergman tried to repeat Reutzel’s move around the extreme topside of the track in turns one and two. But when pole starter Timms slid to the cushion in front of him, Bergman’s momentum was slowed to allow Hafertepe into the lead.

Bergman made his way into second in the next pair of corners as Timms slipped back another spot before finding the top line and reclaiming third by the fifth round.

Hafertepe, Jr., was pressured by Bergman throughout with Timms reeling in the lead duo to make a three-way chase for the point as traffic came into play on the ninth round.

Bergman made his big bid for the lead with a slider in turn four on the 15th round, only to bang off the cushion with Hafertepe countering back into the lead. Timms pounced on the slight Bergman miscue a half-lap later only to do a 360-degree loop in turn two.

With the lead trio a full straightaway ahead of the rest of the pack, Timms retained the third position but lost significant ground to the lead pair.

Hafertepe, Jr., held steady over the final rounds and took his sixth win of the year ahead of Bergman, who secured a position in his eighth career STN finale.

Timms settled for the show position with Tim Crawley crossing the stripe fourth in his final weekend of I-30 Speedway competition. Three-time and reigning STN champion Blake Hahn rounded out the top five as Wayne Johnson, Derek Hagar, Howard Moore, Joe B. Miller and Steven Russell completed the top ten.

Those ten were the only cars on the lead lap with all 19 cars that started making it to the checkered flag after scheduled third-starter Cody Gardner was forced pitside with mechanical gremlins before the race went green.

Hafertepe, Jr., bested the 42-car portion of Program B with a lap of 11.932 seconds in qualifying with Bergman, Moore, Crawley and Gardner posting heat race wins. Landon Crawley and Landon Britt topped the “B” Mains.

The 35th and final COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires to be contested at I-30 Speedway wraps up with Saturday night’s $15,041-to-win finale.

Cannon McIntosh Cruises to SSMC Win with POWRi National & West Midget Leagues

Belleville, IL. (9/30/22) Cannon McIntosh would hold off the late-race dramatics in Night One of the Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex Fall Brawl to capture his seventeenth career victory with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League with an impressive showing of determination in the intense thirty-lap feature.

Early Sweet Springs competition with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League would see Chase McDermand start the quickest putting down an 11.505-second hot-lap as Daison Pursley, Cannon McIntosh, Dominic Gorden, and Chase McDermand would each earn heat racing wins as Xavier Doney would earn the semi-feature win.

Setting the field of competitors would find pole-starter and high-point qualifier Taylor Reimer battling front-row counterpart Daison Pursley into the first pair of corners on the opening lap with Reimer capturing the initial racing advantage as Dominic Gorden, Brenham Crouch, Gavan Boschele, and Bryant Weideman in hot pursuit inside the top-five during the opening laps.

Holding the front of the field for the first few laps of the event, Taylor Reimer would appear to be the fastest wheelman until a first-corner miscue would send her into the outside wall to bring out the caution and relinquish the lead to a speedy Dominic Gorden.

Keeping the point placement, Gorden would hold down first until the mid-point when Cannon McIntosh used a high-side maneuver to slingshot to the lead of the field with Gavan Boschele and Brenham Crouch following suit.

Maintaining the front of the field after the late-race restarts, Cannon McIntosh would not be denied with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League to earn the feature victory to earn his eleventh victory of the season.

“This became a tricky track; I knew I had to almost use a diamond off of turn four but keep the momentum for the high-side in turns one and two. Gavan was really fast tonight so it was everything I could do to keep him behind me” stated the winning McIntosh in the Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex victory lane.

Staying close in the entire feature by using a low-line precision, Bryant Weideman would secure a solid showing of runner-up with Gavan Boschele completing the feature's final podium placement. One-time leader Dominic Gorden would show speed all event to finish fourth as Karter Sarff would drive past four other drivers to round out the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League top-five finishers at SSMC.

Reutzel Romps to Henson Memorial Triumph at I-30 Speedway!

Lonnie Wheatley, LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (September 29, 2022) – Aaron Reutzel kicked off the final Short Track Nationals weekend at I-30 Speedway by racing to victory lane in Thursday night’s 25-lap “15th Annual Ralph Henson Memorial” event atop the high-banked, -mile clay oval.

Reutzel outlasted fellow front row starter Wayne Johnson in the opening circuits and then raced on to a convincing $5,646 victory aboard the Ridge & Sons Racing Mobil 1/Folkens Brothers Trucking No. 8 Sprint Car in the ASCS Mid-South season finale.

“We’ve still got a few things to clean up to have a chance to win on Saturday night,” the Clute, TX, native commented in victory lane. “It does feel really good to get at least one more win at one of my favorite tracks to race at, hopefully we can get at least one more this weekend.”

Reutzel gridded the field from the front row outside and gunned into a commanding lead over pole starter Johnson on the original start only to have it negated when the red flag flew for a backstretch double-tumble involving California’s Justin Sanders and Pennsylvania’s Mark Smith.

Johnson got the better of Reutzel on the second start only to have Reutzel slide back into the lead in turns three and four on the opening lap. Johnson slid back around Reutzel in the next pair of corners only to have Reutzel counter the move again a half-lap later.

Reutzel fought off Johnson for several rounds and began to extend his lead when he reached traffic after just seven laps.

Reutzel worked through traffic in the ensuing rounds, riding a treacherous cushion as Sam Hafertepe, Jr., made his way past Johnson for second on the 15th round before a caution flew for Michael Day’s stalled mount in turn two.

With three lapped cars separating himself from Hafertepe, Jr., and Johnson on the restart, Reutzel stretched out a near straightaway lead by the time Hafertepe, Jr., finally navigated his way through traffic and held the advantage to the stripe.

“That cushion was wild, it was pretty tricky,” Reutzel said afterward.

Hafertepe, Jr., the 2020 Short Track Nationals champion, held the runner-up position the rest of the way while Jordon Mallett slipped past the dicing Oklahoma City duo of Johnson and Ryan Timms in the final corner to snare the final podium position as the trio crossed the stripe in three-wide formation.

Johnson settled for fourth, while Timms’ run from 13th nearly netted third before losing two positions in the final corner to cross the line in fifth. Timms wasted little time working forward from the seventh row, moving into fourth by the tenth circuit and spent the rest of the way battling with Mallett and then Johnson.

Derek Hagar finished sixth to secure not only the ASCS Mid-South Region championship but the I-30 Speedway track title as well that secures a provisional starting position in Saturday’ 35th Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires finale if needed.

“It’s nice to know I have a guaranteed spot, but I’m hoping we can race our way to a better starting position,” Hagar explained.

Brad Bowden claimed seventh with Garet Williamson earning a $200 Hard Charger bonus by racing from 18th to eighth. Kyler Johnson was ninth with Dylan Westbrook the final car on the lead lap in 20th.

Smith and Sanders shared Hard Luck honors for the night.

With 74 cars filling the pit area, Chad Jones, Day, Mallett, Ryan Bickett, Jace Park, Kyler Johnson, Wayne Johnson and Bowden topped heat race action with Timms, Westbrook, Moore and Tim Crawley winning “B” Mains.

“B” Main action was marred by several flips including a wild ride off the top of turn two by Indiana’s Tylar Rankin as well as tumbles by Cody Gardner and Ronny Howard. There were no reported injuries.

Thursday’s card set the stage for the $15,041-to-win 35th Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires that takes place at I-30 Speedway on Friday and Saturday.

Garet Williamson Wrangles Sprint Invaders Feature at Quincy; Cody Wehrle is Series Champ!

(Bill W) Quincy, IL, September 25, 2022 – Garet Williamson emerged victorious on a tricky track Sunday night at Adams County Illinois Speedway in Quincy. The Kingdom City, Missouri driver had to pass one of the hottest drivers in the series, but held on to win the $2,000 top prize. It was Williamson’s second career win with the Sprint Invaders, and first at Quincy.

Cody Wehrle nailed down the driver point championship for the series. Wehrle competed with a 305 under the hood loaned from Roger Grant to maintain his title. His first came in 2018. Scott Bonar, owner of the #50 piloted by Paul Nienhiser won the owner championship.

Williamson led the 25-lap main event at the outset, over Chris Martin and Paul Nienhiser. Nienhiser rode by Martin on lap two to take second. Three laps in, Chase Richards came to a stop to bring caution. On the restart, Nienhiser used the low side of turn four to take second, while Chase Randall claimed fourth from Austin Archdale.

Two laps later, Riley Goodno flipped over the tall cushion in turn three. He was uninjured. Randall used the restart to ride the cushion around Martin for second. He then did the same to Williamson to take the lead, before Richards stopped again, this time in turn four. Randall led Williamson, Martin, Nienhiser and Archdale back to green. Nienhiser used the high side to pass Martin for third, when the green fell again.

On lap ten, Williamson shot a slide job in front of Randall to reclaim the lead before Steven Russell spun on lap 12. Randall and Nieniser battled hard for second, which gave Williamson the time and space to build his lead. Nienhiser would grab second for good with ten to go.

Zach Daum was also on the move after starting in row five. He passed Martin for fourth with ten to go, and a lap later drove under Randall for third. With five to go, Cam Martin flipped over turn three to bring another red. He was unhurt. On the restart, Archdale, spun eliminating a great sixth place run for him. Randall and Daum would trade second again in the closing laps, but Chris Martin was coming too, and passed Randall late for fourth.

Williamson cruised to the win ahead of Daum, Nienhiser, Chris Martin and Randall. Monty Ferriera, Jamie Ball, Bret Tripplett, Colton Fisher and Cody Wehrle completed the top ten. Williamson, Nienhiser and Randall won heats. Nienhiser won the Shake-up Dash, and Steven Russell took the B.

“They tried to wear us out on those restarts,” said Williamson in Victory Lane. “This has been a tiring year. We’ve had the ups and downs. This is one bad ass racetrack. This is a little gem. This is a lot of fun. I had no idea what to do (where to run on the track). Chase got by me and I thought it was over. I yanked the wing back, threw a slider, and it stuck. After that, I knew it would be won on the top. I knew I couldn’t make a mistake, and if I made a mistake I knew it would be over.”

“I could run the bottom to the middle in one and two and I just had to run the top in three and four,” said Daum. “When I got by Randall a little bit there, I noticed he was trying to peek on the bottom. I thought we could still get by and keep our momentum up. On the one restart, Randall got back by me, so I slid him back and kind of went back to my old game plan. I knew we may have something for Nienhiser there if we got two clean laps. I got the start right and got into position to get around him. Luckily, we did that.

“Quincy had it dialed in tonight,” said Nienhiser of the track. “It was about how I remembered it five or ten years ago…top, bottom, middle and guys were throwing slide jobs. When the track cleans off like that, you can really put a race on for the fans. We went back to maybe fifth, and then we were sniffing for the lead, and ultimately, ended up third. I think maybe we could have had a shot at Great with some lapped traffic to make something happen. Congrats to him. This has been a fun series to run with this year, and fun getting to know some of the new drivers. I’m happy for Scott to win the owner’s title. I kind of wish I would have run the whole season, or we would have had a good run at the driver thing too.

“It was a very good season for 95% of it,” said Wehrle of his driver’s championship. “We were consistent and had a lot of good runs. Our luck caught up with us Saturday at Burlington. We got lucky at East Moline when we did a 360 spin and collected JJ Hickle. Things came full circle in Burlington. I have to thank Roger Grant for allowing us to bring his 305 car tonight. That was basically a season saver for us.”

Neuman, Schmidt, Zielski, Heinert claimPlymouth Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships A-main triumphs

Arenz secures second PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Car title

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 24, 2022 – Sprint Cars reigned supreme as a healthy contingent of open-wheel racers and teams converged on The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. for the fifth annual Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships to cap off the 2022 racing season at the venerable third-mile clay speed plant on Saturday, Sept. 24.

Jake Neuman of New Berlin, Ill. secured the 2022 Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series Rookie of the Year Award by nailing down his first career IRA A-main victory in flag-to-flag fashion in the 30-lap headliner.

In the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty Plymouth Dirt Track Racing-Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car A main, 2022 PDTR and MSA champion Ben Schmidt of Plymouth used a late pass to notch his second main event triumph of the 2022 campaign. Ryan Zielski of Oconomowoc claimed the victory in the 20-lap Wisconsin wingless Sprint Car A-main event, while Mark Heinert of Oak Creek was victorious in the 20-lap Interstate Racing Association Lightning Sprints A main.

Jordan Goldesberry of Springfield, Ill. secured his first career Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series championship.

Travis Arenz of Sheboygan Falls wrapped up his second straight double championship season in both the Plymouth Dirt Track Racing and Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car divisions.

Clayton Rossmann of Wadsworth, Ill. and Tim Cox of Park City, Ill. were named 2022 Wisconsin wingLESS Sprint Car Series co-champion, after finishing in a tie for first place in the final point standings.

Mike Neau of Pleasant Prairie completed a championship season in the Interstate Racing Association Lightning Sprints division.

In the 30-lap IRA 410 Sprint Car Series main event, Jake Neuman outpowered polesitter Josh Schneiderman of West Burlington, Iowa to grab the initial lead along the high groove of the lightning fast, hammer-down track surface.

On lap five, Neuman caught the back of the field with Schneiderman chasing in second and fifth-starting Danny Schlafer of Sussex in third. As the leaders wound their way through dense lapped traffic, Schneiderman began to chip away at the lead gap to close in on Neuman.

The lone caution flag flew on lap 16 when Jordan Paulsen of Trevor stopped near the turn one wall. When the race resumed, Neuman again maintained control of the lead, while Scotty Thiel of Sheboygan, who started ninth, worked his way past visiting Port Royal, Pa. driver Dylan Cisney into fourth.

With time running out as the laps clicked off, Schneiderman mounted one final charge to briefly pull even with Neuman in turn two on lap 29. However, Neuman fended off Schneiderman’s advances en route to his first career IRA 410 A-main victory.

“It’s awesome to get a win here tonight,” Neuman said in victory lane. “We were close to getting our first IRA win earlier this year here, but [Bill] Balog got us and he’s tough to beat here. It was a great year earning the IRA Rookie of the Year Award. We will see what we can do for next year.”

Schneiderman placed second, Schlafer finished third, Thiel was fourth and Cisney, who started eighth, rounded out the top five.

The 25-lap PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Car A main got off to a rocky start when a red flag appeared on lap one when Katelyn Krebsbach of Cascade flipped hard along the front stretch.

Following a complete restart, two-time PDTR and four-time MSA 360 Sprint Car champ Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh, who started second, bolted past polesitter Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum to take the lead on the opening lap.

By lap five, McMullen caught the rear of the field with Wenninger in pursuit and 2021 PDTR and MSA champion Travis Arenz of Sheboygan Falls following in third, after starting fourth.

The caution was displayed on lap 8 when Brandon Berth of Cascade stopped in turn one. On the restart, Ben Schmidt powered in from his sixth starting spot to bolt past Arenz into third.

Schmidt then reeled in Wenninger to take over second on lap 22 just before the red flag appeared on lap 22 from a flip involving Brandon Berth in turn three. Another caution flag was displayed when Anthony Knierim of Caledonia stopped along the back stretch on the ensuing restart.

Following a single-file restart, Schmidt moved to steal the lead away from McMullen with a well-executed low move in turn three on lap 24. Schmidt then held on to wrap up his 15th career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory, 32nd career Midwest Sprint Car Association triumph and second 360 Sprint Car A-main victory of the 2022 season.

Schmidt, who came into the night trailing Travis Arenz by 19 points in the PDTR 360 Sprint Car title chase, stated in victory lane that he went into the final A main of the season with a winning mindset.

“We really had nothing to lose tonight, so that was kind of my approach sitting second in points with one night left,” Schmidt said. “Running second to Travis [Arenz] two races in a row at Dodge County frustrated me a bit, so that also lit a fire under me. This race was kind of a replay of opening night with Brandon [McMullen] and I going for the lead in turn three. That incident on opening night proved to be the difference in the points race as I had my only DNF [did not finish] of the season that night. It was almost exactly the same tonight, but I made it through and made the pass this time and it feels great to end the season in victory lane.”

Polesitter Rusty Egan of Round Lake Heights, Ill. jumped into the lead on the drop of the green flag of the 20-lap Wisconsin wingLESS Sprint Car Series A main with third starter Ryan Zielski following in second and outside front row starter Allen Hafford of Beach Park, Ill. in third.

On lap 10, Egan caught the back of the field, which allowed Zielski to close in on the lead. Zielski moved in to challenge the low riding Egan along the high line of fast and tacky track surface on lap 18 before sweeping into the lead in turn one on lap 19 in dense lapped traffic.

The first of two caution flags appeared for a two-car incident involving the third-place car of Ryan Marshall of Kansasville and Trinity Uttech of New Berlin in turn four on lap 19 and another caution flag was displayed for the stalled car of Dennis Spitz of Lewisburg, Ky. along the back stretch on the restart.

When the race resumed, Zielski pulled away from Egan en route to the victory.Egan finished second, newly crowned 2022 Wisconsin wingLESS Series co-champion Clayton Rossman of Wadsworth, Ill., who started fifth, placed third, Hafford wound up fourth and ninth starter Chris Klemko of Bristol placed fifth.

After starting third, Mark Heinert used a big push on the start to take the lead on the opening lap of the 20-lap IRA Lightning Sprints A main.

The yellow flag appeared on lap 3 when Jordan Funderburk of Wadsworth, Ill. stopped along the front stretch. Heinert again controlled the restart and extended his lead at the front of the field before a red flag was displayed on lap 19 when Shawn Steinpas of Brookfield flipped exiting turn four.

Newly crowned 2022 IRA Lightning Sprints champion Mike Neau of Pleasant Prairie, who started fifth, bolted in to challenge Heinert for the top spot on lap 19. However, Heinert held strong on the ensuing restart en route to the victory.

Neu placed second, Derek Fortier of Pleasant Prairie took third after starting fourth, sixth starter John Kirk of Johnsburg, Ill was fourth and 11th starter Tim Brannam of Holiday Hills, Ill.

Dylan Cisney was the IRA 410 Sprint Car Series fast qualifier with a lap of 11.240 seconds.

Ben Schmidt earned PDTR 360 Sprint Car overall fast qualifier honors with a lap of 12.200 seconds.

John Kirk was the fastest IRA Lightning Sprints driver in group qualifying with a fast lap of 13.383 seconds.

Derek Crane of Racine won the 12-lap Wisconsin wingLESS Sprint Cars B main. The 14th official and 13th full PDTR racing program of the 2022 season, which was sponsored by JosFO Electric, drew a total of 97 cars, including 24 IRA 410 Sprint Cars and 24 PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Cars, 32 Wisconsin wingLESS Sprint Cars and 17 IRA Lightning Sprints.

Debenedetti Survives the 55/

9/24/22

Alger, WA -Jon Debenedetti survived 55 laps of racing at Skagit Speedway and walked away with $10,000 to show for his efforts on Saturday night.

Skagit Aggregates sponsored two nights of modified action at Skagit Speedway and Debenedetti, the veteran Oregon driver, proved up to the task as the checkered flag fell. Debenedetti took the lead over on lap 30 of 55, and would lead the rest of the way to score the victory, holding off a strong late race challenge from runner up Jesse Williamson and eventual fourth place finisher Bricen James. James was running second and made a dive bomb at Debenedetti in turn two with two lap sleft that came up short, costing him second and the final spot on the podium, which went to Eston Whisler.

The highest paying race of the year for Sportsman Sprints ran as the companion show to the Survive the 55 modified race. Veteran Jason Solwold closed out his season with a victory, driving the Shaylen Raye Motorsports entry past Kai Dixon on lap four and running unchallenged the rest of the way to pick up the $2,500 payday. Luke Didiuk advance to second with Dana Genn taking third.

COLTON NELSON BANKS 20K WITH SECOND CONSECUTIVE PINK LADY WIN

September 24, 2022 – Meridian, Idaho – Colton Nelson survived a first lap pileup and cruised to his second consecutive Pink Lady Classic victory Saturday night at Meridian Speedway in front of a packed grandstand.

The Speed Tour and NSRA event, with a promotional co-sanction with Must See Racing, has become the premier winged pavement sprint car race in the entire country in recent years. The race has been referred to as the Knoxville Nationals of pavement. This year’s field included drivers from 7 states and Canada.

Polesitter Aaron Willison got the jump at the start and lead the first 38 laps and was the leader at the conclusion of the first of three segments. The first segment featured 2 red flags including a lap one pileup that ended the night for several cars.

Willison would draw a 6 for the inversion of the second segment. Willison, who was the events fast qualifier, would not be one of the 10 cars to advance to the final segment. He spun after contact with Troy DeCaire and was forced to go to the tail. He wouldn’t be able to work his way back into the top 10.

Casey Tillman would win the second segment and the right to start on the ole for the final 24-lap segment alongside Colton Nelson who finished second in the Second segment.

When the green flag waved to start the final segment, Nelson powered into the lead and never looked back as he went on to win the event and collect $20,000 in the process. Nelson methodically worked his way into the lead by the start of the third segment from the 22nd starting position.

“It feels really good” explained Nelson in victory lane. “We earned this the hard way. The last time we locked in and didn’t have to run any of the qualifying races. We came from 22nd, avoided all the cars in the lap one crash. And worked our way to the front and got it done”.

"I made zero contact on that first lap crash. It was just duck and dive. Luckily, I didn’t get hit, nothing. At the start of the final segment, I knew I had to get on the motor and not let Tillman paly any games with me on that restart. Once I got in front of him it was clean sailing from there” concluded Nelson.

Feature (100 Laps): 1. 07-Colton Nelson; 2. 81-Casey Tillman; 3. 12L-Ron Larson; 4. 91-Bryan Warf; 5. 71-Riley Rogers; 6. 41-Tyler Roahrig; 7. 99-Cory Lockwood; 8. 6g-Bryan Gossel; 9. 81t-Mike Murgoitio; 10. 68-Mike Anderson; 11. 9-Troy DeCaire; 12. 14-Aaron Willison; 13. 36-Ryan Burdett; 14. 36d-Austin Luttmer; 15. 14j-Davey Hamilton Jr.; 16. 16-Rob Grice; 17. 63-Brent Collins; 18. 22L-Richie Larson; 19.8-Brad Aumen; 20. 77-Anthony Quintana; 21. 33-Kyle Alberding; 22. 2-Nate Little; 23. 57-Evan Margeson; 24. 24-Matt Elliott; 25. 12-Aaron McPeak; 26. 4-Aiden Spiers; 27. 16g-Austyn Gossel; 28. 4b-Alan Beck

 

 

Chase Randall Cops $5,000 at 34 Raceway’s Fall Haul!

(Bill W) West Burlington, IA, September 25, 2022 – Chase Randall likes running with the Sprint Invaders! The Waco, Texas native won his sixth Sprint Invaders feature of the season on Saturday, and this one was his richest. With his clean sweep of 34 Raceway’s Fall Haul in West Burlington, Iowa, he took home over $5,200 with his heat, Dash and feature victories aboard the Bush’s Chicken, CSI Shocks #9.

The 30-lap main event proved to be on of attrition as it took four tries to get going. Veteran Randy Martin came to a stop on the first try, while Cody Wehrle, Nate Mills and Tyler Lee all suffered incidents in turns one and two on the second try and were eliminated. The third try saw a mid-field bump up between Terry McCarl, Devin Wignall, Joe Beaver, Jamie Ball and Devon Dobie. Only Wignall and Ball (sans nose wing) would continue.

Once the race resumed, Paul Nienhiser asserted himself by taking the point, followed by Randall, Davey Heskin, Bret Tripplett and Riley Goodno. The leaders were approaching lappers on the eighth circuit, when Nienhiser tried sliding by the lapped car of Chase Richards and making contact. The result was Richards getting upside down over turn one, and Nienhiser suffering a flat that ended his race. No one was hurt. Heskin, who was running behind Randall had to retire with a low tire of his own.

Randall assumed the lead now, ahead of Tripplett, Goodno and Carson McCarl. Once green, Chris Martin moved his way up to fourth, before Randall entered lappers again on lap 14. Martin claimed third from Goodno on lap 16, and Garet Williamson followed him a lap later into fourth.

On lap 19, Carson McCarl came to a stop in turn four. Williamson slid in front of Martin on the restart to take third, while Zach Daum used the low side to move into the top five. Carson McCarl spun with eight to go, collecting Ryan Jamison and ending both of their races.

Randall maintained his lead, while Williamson slid by Tripplett for the runner-up spot. Chris Martin moved into third, and Daum was fourth with six to go. Tripplett would end up fifth. Goodno, Colton Fisher, Luke Verardi, hard-charger and provisional Jamie Ball and Evan Martin rounded out the top ten. Plenty of contingencies from a number of sponsors padded wallets.

Randall, Fisher, Monty Ferriera and Chris Martin won heat races. Randall won the Shake-up Dash and Joe Beaver won the B main. Nienhiser won $500 by taking the Terry Jamison Memorial Dash for the top eight car owners.

“It was unfortunate what happened to Paul there,” said Randall afterwards. “I think it would have been a good race between him and me. We were set up really good. I got to second early, and kind of just rode around to figure out where my car would work best. I found the top really good the whole way around, especially off of four. We got to lapped traffic early there. They were all over the place in front of us, we slid a car and Paul got together with the other car. That benefited us. We were able to get the lead and get out front. Clean air was very key. I’m glad to get another win here and 34, and I thank them for having us. It was a long race…nothing we could control. We finally got it going. It was a fun race after that, and I’m glad to be here.”

On Sunday, September 25, the Adams County Illinois Speedway in Quincy plays host to the series’ season finale. For more information, visit www.SprintInvaders.net.

Cochran tops 305 Sprint Special at Hidden Valley; Cipriano, Wolfe and Hoffner new winners

CLEARFIELD, PA - Tylor Cochran of Williamsport made his first visit a winning one by copping the Laurel Highlands 305 Sprint feature Saturday night at Hidden Valley Speedway. Other new winners included: Ayden Cipriano of Hermitage in the Small Block Modifieds, Casey Wolfe of Penfield won his first Amsoil Pure Stock feature and Luke Hoffner of Turbotville picked up his first Craig’s Welding and Fabrication Four Cylinder feature of the season. Levi Ardery of West Decatur picked up his fourth feature win of the season in the Scaife’s Racing Supplies Semi Lates. Marvin “Waco” Williams and George Bailey led the Semi Lates to the green flag, with Bailey shooting into the lead for the first two laps, before he spun on lap two, in turn two. This put Williams in the lead, and he led until lap four, when Levi Ardery was able to wrestle the lead away from him. Williams held off Steve Scaife Jr. the next five laps, before he was able to take over second and set his sights on the leader. As the race wore on, Scaife was reeling in the leader, but he could not find the extra burst of power to take the win. At the waving of Jon Shipley’s checkered flag it was Ardery getting his fourth win of the season over Scaife, Bailey, Williams and Jeremy Lippert. Ardery won the heat. The Laurel Highlands 305 Sprints saw Tylor Cochran and Derek Swartz on the front row, following a redraw, with Cochran taking the lead and never looking back. He had Swartz in tow the entire 25-lap distance. DJ Cassler was a solid third for the first 13 laps, but mechanical problems sent him to the pits and out of contention. Timmy Bittner then moved to third, holding off Roger Irvine the rest of the way. The top five at the conclusion were Cochran, Swartz, Bittner, Irvine and Jeff Weaver. Cochran and Bittner split heat wins. Trent Ogden started on the pole of the Small Block Modified feature, flanked on the outside by newcomer Ayden Cipriano, who shot into the lead and led the 20-lapper flag-to-flag. While he led, Hayden Holden moved into second, setting up a battle of the teenagers, as Holden tried to chase down Cipriano, but through lap 10, Holden had to try and hold off his dad, Jimmy, who was coming from sixth, then on lap 10, Jimmy moved his son to third, then the yellow waved on lap 13. On the restart, Jimmy went high in turn two, and son Hayden took advantage and took second from his dad, and held his dad at bay. At the checkered flag it was Cipriano winning over Hayden Holden, Jimmy Holden, Shannon Casher and Jimmy Luzier. Heat wins went to Cipriano and Jimmy Holden. The Amsoil Pure Stocks had Casey Wolfe and Ryan Jones on the front row, as Wolfe took the lead and set the pace, with second being the big race, as Wolfe was leading Jones sat second for much of the race, with Brad Benton coming from last towards the front, and he challenged Jone for second for several laps, before finally taking the runner up spot on lap 11 and running out of time, as Wolfe took his first HVS win of the season. Benton was second, Jones held on to third, Dennis Hathaway was fourth and Brady Gallaher was fifth. Wolfe also won the heat. The Craig’s Welding and Fabrication Four Cylinders saw Ryan Lippert and Matt Weaver on the front row, with third place Luke Hoffner leading the first lap after getting by Lippert in turn one. Following a pair of cautions on the first lap, Lippert was able to take the lead back from Hoffner, and the duo ran side-by-side several times, before Lippert opened up a nice lead and looked to be headed for his first ever HVS win, but on lap 11, Lipperts car lost power on the backstretch, relinquishing the lead over to Hoffner. Hoffner was able to hold off Tanner Ogden the final four laps to get his first A-main win of the season. Earlier in the season Hoffner picked up a second chance feature win, but this was his first feature win in a couple of years. At the line, the top five were: Hoffner, Ogden, Hunter Flook, Weaver, and Lem Crawford. Heat wins went to Lippert and Weaver.

Zeth Sabo gets 1st career 410 sprint win at Fremont; Weaver earns 6th 305 victory; Miller gets 5th truck victory

Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Zeth Sabo grew up working around Fremont Speedway. On Saturday, Sept. 24, the Fremont native had his dreams come true – a sprint car victory at “The Track That Action Built” on O’Reilly Auto Parts Night.

Sabo, in his first full season of 410 sprint car racing, has finished in the runner-up position three times at Fremont this year. Bad luck and mechanical issues have also plagued the young racer. On Saturday it all came together as he led all 30 laps for his first career victory at his home town track aboard the Rich Farmer owned #29.

“I really don’t know what to say right now. I can’t thank my guys enough…Farmer and everybody who makes this deal possible. This is like a huge relief. I thought I heard someone so I drove it harder and harder…I finally just slowed down and hit my marks good and I knew we would be okay,” said Sabo beside his Fremont Auto Parts, NAPA, Limo Scene Limo Services, Kiser Sound, Valvoline, Level Utilities, Linder Speed Equipment backed machine.

In the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints, three time track champion Paul Weaver took the lead with just five laps to go from race-long leader TJ Michael and drove to his sixth win of the season at Fremont. The current point leader now has 70 career victories at the track putting him third on the all-time win list.

“Throughout the night we were talking in the stands quite a bit and he (Michael) was listening because he was pretty tough to get around. When you come up on lapped cars you have to move around…it just takes a split second and you get passed,” said Weaver beside his Steve Brown’s B&B Drain Service, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Seagate Sandblasting, Fostoria Mod Shop backed #31.

Jamie Miller charged into the lead from his seventh starting spot on lap 10 and survived a last lap restart to score his fifth Burmeister Dirt Truck victory of the year at Fremont. It’s Miller’s 36th career win at the track, moving him into a tie with Byron Reed and Bobby Clark for 12th on the all-time win list.

“This truck is really damn good. I have to thank Scott Gressman this week and Joe Bradford. They ripped the motor out of this thing and got it freshened up this week and put it back in last night and here we are today. Once I quit screwing around running the bottom and moved up into the middle the thing rolled through there pretty good and I drove around everybody,” said Miller of his Fostoria Mod Shop backed #4M.

In the 30-lap Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint feature a tumble by Jonah Aumend at the start necessitated a complete restart. Sabo bolted into the lead over Conner Morrell, Cap Henry, Trey McGranahan and Boston Mead. Henry grabbed second a lap later but could not catch Sabo.

Just as the leaders were entering lapped traffic a caution flew on lap seven. On the restart Sabo pulled away from Henry with McGranahan locked in a battle with Morrell and Byron Reed for third. Once again just as Sabo drove into lapped traffic another caution flew. And once again on the restart Sabo pulled away from Henry with Reed, DJ Foos and Craig Mintz in pursuit.

Sabo built his lead to nearly two seconds as he encountered heavy lapped traffic with five laps to go. Sabo sliced his way through and drove away to the win over Henry, Foos, Mintz and Reed.

After a spin and a crash to start the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint A-main, TJ Michael bolted into the lead over Jimmy McGrath, Weaver, Mike Keegan and Jamie Miller. Weaver took second a lap later but McGrath battled back to retake second on lap five as Michael pulled away slightly just as a caution came out.

Michael drove away again when the green flew over Weaver, McGrath, Keegan and Shawn Valenti. Just as Michael was entering heavy lapped traffic the caution gave him a clear track with 13 laps to go. This time on the restart Weaver hung right with Michael and the pair had a great battle until Weaver was able to take the lead with just five laps to go. Weaver pulled away for the win over Michael, McGrath, Valenti and Steve Rando.

Dave Gumby Jr. grabbed the early lead of the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature over Cory McCaughey, Shawn Valenti, Jeff Babcock, Dan Hennig and Chuck Roelle. Valenti moved into second on lap two and stayed close to Gumby as Babcock and McCaughey applied pressure to the lead duo.

Gumby had an engine issue on lap eight as his mount went up in flames, handing the lead to Valenti over Babcock, McCaughey, Hennig and Miller. Miller drove into third a lap later and took second on lap nine. Miller drove to the outside of Valenti to take the lead at the halfway point.

Miller seemed to have the race in hand until a caution flew with two laps to go. On the restart Valenti drove to Miller’s inside as they raced side by side to the white flag. Miller hit his marks perfectly and drove to the win as Babcock got around Valenti for second with Hennig and Jim Holcomb rounding out the top five.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, Oct. 1 for season championship night for the 410 and 305 sprints and dirt trucks.

Arenz powers to eighth 2022 MSA A-main triumph at Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 23, 2022 – Defending Midwest Sprint Car Association champion and current point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan Falls claimed his eighth Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car A-main victory of the 2022 season, while securing a season sweep of MSA main event action at the Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway in Beaver Dam, Wis. during the Checkered Classic on Friday, Sept. 23.

The annual Checkered Classic held in honor of Fuzzy Fassbender, Rick Schmidt and Dick Witt drew 18 MSA 360 Sprint Cars to the “horsepower half mile” Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway facility for the second-to-last event of the 2022 MSA campaign.

Polesitter Tyler Brabant of Waupun jumped into the lead on the drop of the green flag of the 20-lap main event with outside front row starter Bill Taylor of Boltonville sliding into second on the opening lap.

On lap 2, Travis Arenz bolted up from his eighth starting spot to maneuver around Taylor into second in turn three before quickly setting his sights on the top spot. Two laps later, Arenz moved within striking distance of Brabant before pulling off what proved to be the winning move along the low line in turn two on lap six.

As Arenz proceeded to open up a sizable lead at the head of the pack, 2011 MSA champion Ben Schmidt of Plymouth, who started ninth, worked his way in to challenge third starter Katelyn Krebsbach of Cascade for third in the running order.

Krebsbach and Schmidt waged a heated duel for third with the second-year driver holding off the advances of the 23-year racing veteran over the ensuing five laps before the first of two yellow flags appeared on lap 13 when Tyler Davis of Franklin lost power and rolled his smoking machine to a stop in turn two. During the caution period, Brabant relinquished second place after stopping along the front stretch.

The second and final yellow flag appeared shortly after the restart when 2018 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car champion Justin Miller of Plymouth spun in turn four.

When the race resumed, Arenz firmly established command of the race, while Schmidt dove under Krebsbach to move into second and 11th starter Chris Clayton of Waldo also slipped past Krebsbach to assume third. Five laps later, Krebsbach answered back by motoring past Clayton to reclaim third place.

Arenz pulled away from Schmidt, who is his closest pursuer in the chase for the 2022 MSA title, over the final two laps en route to his second straight MSA A-main victory at the Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway, eighth overall MSA main event triumph of the 2022 season and 30th career MSA A-main win.

“This place is certainly different from any other track we go to,” Arenz said. “Driving the 410 car here a few weeks ago helped to make me faster in the 360. I love it here. This is a great win for everyone that helps out on the team and all of my sponsors.”

Schmidt, who came into the night trailing Arenz by 17 points at the top of the MSA point standings, finished runner-up to Arenz for the second straight MSA race at the Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway.

“This race was kind of a replay of the last time we were here a few weeks ago,” Schmidt said. “Travis was one spot better than us that night too. We came into the weekend with hopes to pull out the MSA championship, but we need to figure out a way to get a little bit faster to have a shot at that.”

After contact with Bill Taylor in the early stages of the race sent the front end of her car high into the air along the high-speed back stretch, Krebsbach, the 2021 MSA rookie of the year, was overjoyed to earn an MSA career-best third place finish,

“It is a great feeling to be standing here on the front stretch with a podium finish,” Krebsbach said. “We had a bit of a tussle with Bill [Taylor] in the beginning of the race and luckily, I was able to continue on and get this great finish. The car was awesome. I’m so thankful for everyone that helps out with our team and makes all of this possible.”

Clayton finished fourth and 2005 MSA champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett placed fifth after starting seventh.

Arenz heads into the 2022 MSA season finale at The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 24 with a 19-point lead over Ben Schmidt at the top of the point standings.

MSA heat race victories went to Tony Wondra of Campbellsport and Ben Schmidt.

In MSA group qualifying, Lance Fassbender established a new Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway 360 Sprint Car track record with a lap of 18.798 seconds around the half-time oval.

The MSA 360 Sprint Car Series is scheduled to close out the 2022 season with the Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 24 with on-track action slated to begin at 4:45 p.m.

BOWMAN WINS INAUGURAL CANADIAN CRATE SPRINT CAR NATIONALS; THOMAS TAKES KNIGHTS OF THUNDER VICTORY
 

By Tommy Goudge

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (September 16, 2022) – Mike Bowman took the win in the Inaugural Canadian Crate Sprint Car Nationals on Friday night at Ohsweken Speedway, while Jordan Thomas was the victor in the Pinty’s Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car Series event. A total of 76 drivers competed in Friday’s event presented by Nitro 54 Variety, including 43 Crate Sprint Cars and 33 360 Sprint Cars.

Canadian Crate Sprint Car Nationals Crate Sprint Cars

Steve Murdock and Darren Dryden earned front row starting spots for the 30 lap Crate Sprint Car A-Main, and Dryden led the first lap before Mike Bowman slipped past on lap three. Bowman’s pass was negated, however, by a yellow flag for the stopped car of Tyler Ward on the frontstretch. Several drivers made significant gains in the first two laps, including Curtis Gartly who had picked up nine spots.

Dryden kept the lead on the restart, but the race came to a halt when Matt Billings flipped on the frontstretch with three laps complete. Bowman again looked poised to make a pass for the lead after the restart, but a melee ensued when Eric Gledhill and Gartly got together and brought out the yellow flag; Gartly and Brian Nanticoke got the worst of the exchange and were done for the night.

Dryden, Bowman, Jesse Costa, Murdock, and Dale Curran made up the top five for the next restart, and Bowman again went to work in an effort to take the lead from Dryden. While the leaders raced, AST points leader Jacob Dykstra moved back into the top five, passing both Curran and Murdock in quick succession. Dryden, Bowman, and Costa raced close together over the next few laps, with Dryden running the low groove and Bowman up high. Bowman then dove low on Dryden in turn one with eight laps complete, but couldn’t make the move stick.

The leaders caught the tail end of the field with nine laps complete, and Dykstra was able to move past Costa into third as the two negotiated traffic. Dryden briefly opened a gap, but Bowman and Dykstra ran him down again. A joust for second was cut short when Lucas Smith spun off the track in turn four to bring out another yellow flag with 14 laps complete. The yellow was a reprieve for AST championship contender Mathieu Bardier, who had just gone a lap down.

Bowman yet again went after Dryden on the restart, only to see the red flag come out again for a hard Tyeller Powless flip in turn three. Bowman continued to challenge Dryden for the lead when the race restarted, using the outside line while Dryden stayed in the middle of the track and kept Bowman at bay. Murdock re-entered the top three at this point, getting around Dykstra before another yellow appeared for Seth Roy. Murdock then drove around the outside of Bowman on the restart, only to see that move negated when Eric Gledhill spun and collected Adrian Stahle.

Bowman finally got past Dryden after the next restart, but Dryden stayed close behind as the two raced through traffic. Bowman stayed ahead though, leading the final nine laps through one more restart to collect the win and write his name in the record books. Given the choice between $5,000 or a brand new crate engine in victory lane, Bowman chose the engine and left the cash for Saturday night’s winner.

Dryden fought Murdock off to take the runner-up spot, with Murdock taking the final podium spot. Dykstra crossed the line in fourth but came up a few pounds light at the scales and was disqualified. Costa and Curran got credit for fourth and fifth as a result, while Lee Ladouceur, Allan Downey, Darrell Pelletier, Sheldon Bender, and Johnny Miller rounded out the top ten.

Jordan Thomas and Liam Martin drew front row starting spots for the 25 lap 360 Sprint Car A-Main, and traded several slide jobs when the green flag appeared. Martin eventually settled in to the lead, but Thomas chased him back down as the two raced through traffic.

Martin and Thomas both searched the track and sometimes slid high while trying to get through the slower cars; Thomas eventually dove low on Martin in turn three to take the lead with 15 laps complete.

Thomas drove away to claim the win in the race which went green-to-checkered in less than six and a half minutes. Martin settled for the runner-up spot, followed by Josh Hansen, Chuck Hebing, and row seven starter Paulie Colagiovanni.

RYAN TURNER CLAIMS 18TH RUNNING OF THE CANADIAN SPRINT CAR NATIONALS; BOWMAN COMPLETES AST SWEEP
Second CSCN Triumph For Turner

By Tommy Goudge

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (September 17, 2022) – Ryan Turner claimed $10,000 and the second Canadian Sprint Car Nationals win of his career on Saturday night at Ohsweken Speedway, while Mike Bowman was the victor in the Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s Crate Sprint Car event. A total of 74 drivers competed in the 18th Running of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals presented by Nitro 54 Variety and Arrow Express, including 36 360 Sprint Cars and 38 Crate Sprint Cars.

Canadian Sprint Car Nationals 360 Sprint Cars

Mikey Kruchka and Jordan Poirier earned front row starting spots for the 35 lap CSCN A-Main, both looking for their first Canadian Sprint Car Nationals win. Poirier took command early, looking to follow in his uncle Steve’s footsteps. Paulie Colagiovanni took the second spot from Kruchka on lap two and went after Poirier. The leaders were already beginning to close in on traffic on lap five, but got a reprieve when Nick Sheridan brought out the yellow flag with a broken rear end.

The double-file restart gave Colagiovanni a shot at the lead, but Poirier took command again while Ryan Turner moved into third past Kruchka. Colagiovanni was close behind Poirier and looking to pounce, but the race was slowed again on lap eight when Lynton Jeffrey and Chuck Hebing made contact on the frontstretch; Jeffrey’s car suffered significant front end damage and put the Australian driver out of the race. D.J. Christie also stopped on the track with left front suspension damage which eventually ended his race.

Poirier, Colagiovanni, and Turner restarted in the top three, while Liam Martin, Kruchka, and Kyle Phillips made up the other half of the top six. Martin powered around the outside on the restart, but got pinched between Colagiovanni and the backstretch wall; the contact was enough to break Martin’s rear end and bring out another yellow flag.

Poirier held serve on the next restart with Colagiovanni close behind, while Phillips and Turner diced for third. Row 12 starter Jason Barney moved into the top five, while Friday night winner Jordan Thomas also moved past Kruchka. The next yellow flag came out with 11 laps complete when Todd Hoddick stopped on the track with a mechanical issue.

Colagiovanni took the lead away from Poirier on the restart, while Poirier fell into the clutches of Ryan Turner. A slide job on lap 18 briefly got Turner past Poirier and in a position to challenge Colagiovanni just as they started to encounter traffic. Poirier’s counter was cut short when Barney caught the frontstretch wall and flipped violently. Barney was shaken up, but able to walk away from his badly-damaged car. Going back to the last completed lap put Poirier back into second, and he subsequently inherited the lead when a fuel leak during the stoppage forced Colagiovanni to the pit area and ended his bid for a second CSCN victory.

The race restarted just short of the halfway mark with Poirier leading, followed by Ryan Turner, Phillips, Kruchka, and Thomas. Poirier held the lead again, while Kruchka drove around the outside of Phillips to take third. Turner went after Poirier and took the lead as the two were lapping Dale Gosselin in turn two with 11 laps remaining, and Kruchka then took second from Poirier on the next lap. Another yellow flag appeared on lap 30 when Ryan Coniam spun in turn four.

The single-file restart with five laps left saw Turner, Kruchka, Poirier, Phillips, and Hebing in the top five. Turner doggedly stuck to the low side of the track while Kruchka searched for a way past on the outside. Kruchka made a bold move on lap 34 diving low between Turner and the inside wall in turn one, but Kruchka slid high and Turner drove back around him. Poirier got a shot at Kruchka while Turner drove under the white flag, but Phillips stopped high in turn four to bring out the yellow flag and force a one lap dash to the finish.

Turner had a good restart and drove to the win with Kruchka settling for the runner-up spot. Hebing slipped past Poirier on the last lap to claim the final podium spot, while Mitch Brown rounded out the top five. Josh Hansen, Cory Turner, Jordan Thomas, Glenn Styres, and Baily Heard rounded out the top ten.

The unique circumstances of 2022 allowed Turner to claim two Canadian Sprint Car Nationals wins in one season, a feat that is unlikely to ever be possible again. He also did it with two different cars and two different teams following his move to the No. 15 in August.

“I think we’ve just been gaining speed and winning this race shows just how much we’ve really been gaining,” Turner exclaimed. “Our crew killed it all night; they were thrashing right before we went out, changing tires, changing rims. They worked their butts off.”

Kruchka wasn’t unhappy with second and the $5,000 payday, but wished the race had stayed green. Still, it was a good finish for the veteran driver who has had his share of CSCN heartbreak in the past.

“It’s frustrating because we only get typically one shot at this a year, and then to come so close…” lamented Kruchka. “I’m sure I had a better car running around the top; I just I knew it was going to be a long race and I packed it full of fuel but I was scared to pack it too much because sometimes you get a stumble at the start. I didn’t need that last caution…with the momentum I think we would have been alright, but (on the restart) I got a couple bumbles and I was just praying to hang on to second.”

Chuck Hebing added to his illustrious Canadian Sprint Car Nationals resume with his sixth top-five CSCN finish and third podium.

“We survived…a couple of the guys had trouble up front,” Hebing observed. “We were better on cold tires than we were on hot tires; you know we haven’t been up here in so long and we will make some changes for next time, but it was good to be back.”

Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s Crate Sprint Cars

Lucas Smith and Austin Roes drew front row starting spots for the 25 lap Crate Sprint Car A-Main. A $5,000 prize awaited the winner, as Mike Bowman chose the brand new crate engine as his prize for winning the Canadian Crate Nationals the previous night.

Jacob Dykstra took the lead and was looking to regain some of the advantage he lost in the AST points standings following his disqualification on Friday night. The only major incident of the race occurred when John Cadman clipped the frontstretch wall and flipped hard. The veteran of pavement racing emerged uninjured and vowed to return for more fun on the dirt.

AST championship contender Mathieu Bardier brought out a yellow flag just past the halfway mark, briefly heading to the pit area before salvaging a 16th place finish. Bowman had fallen back early in the race but charged forward after the yellow flag, using traffic to catch and pass Smith, Steve Murdock, and Dykstra to take the win and sweep the weekend. Dykstra settled for the runner-up spot, followed by Murdock, Smith, and Darren Dryden, another AST championship hopeful.

Reed Cruises To Victory in Selinsgrove ‘Race to Hunting Season’

Austin Reed of Etters captured his second major race of the River Valley Builders PA Sprint Series 2022 season Saturday, leading from start to finish to capture the Pennsylvania Game Commission-sponsored “Race to Hunting Season” at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The win came two-and-a-half months after the White Tails Down/MRO Car Removal/Stevie Carr/Mac Stack/Save Rite Auto Body/Snelbaker Flooring #34 team’s victory in the Nittany 40 at Clinton County Speedway. Those have been the two highest-paying PASS events among the 33 run so far this year.

That Clinton County race had featured a furious battle between Reed and Garrett Bard, but while Selinsgrove was hardly easy, nobody got alongside Reed to attempt a pass, and his final margin of victory over runner-up Josh Spicer of Julian was 1.615 seconds.

That performance clinched a second-place finish in the season points.

The moment of uncertainty for Reed’s win came on lap 17, when Doug Dodson hit the wall in turn two, bringing out the race’s only caution and erasing a huge lead. But Reed got a good jump on the restart, and the crowd’s attention soon turned to a torrid battle for third place between Logan Spahr of Lewisberry and Bard, newly crowned 2022 PASS champion from Wells Tannery. For several laps they traded slide jobs and raced side-by-side before Bard edged into possession of the spot.

By that time, though, it was too late to catch Spicer in second, and Reed was cruising in the lead, heading for his fourth PASS win of the year, putting him in a tie with Dodson for most victories after Bard’s 11.

For Spicer, the second place was a career best, coming after a couple of front-running efforts that weren’t reflected in good finishes, and it earned him a claim to the “next-driver-to-win-a-PASS-feature-for-the-first-time” label.

Behind Bard and Spahr, Christian Rumsey of Middletown, N.Y., who earlier set fast time in qualifying, came how fifth, advancing seven positions from his 12th-place start.

The race’s hard charger, though, was Watsontown’s Kenny Heffner, who moved up 11 positions from 22nd to 11th. Scott Frack advanced eight positions, and Seth Schnoke equaled Rumsey with an advance of seven spots. Heffner’s effort earned him a right rear tire, courtesy of Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic.

Completing the top 10 were Ken Duke Jr., Zach Rhodes, Jeff Weaver, Erin Statler, and Frack.

Heat race winners for the 30-car field were Weaver, Duke, Reed, and Jason Roush. W.C. Eshenaur & Son added $150 to the purse for each heat race winner. Fred Arnold took the b-main.

The race took considerably longer than anticipated to start. Timmy Bittner had a problem and flipped out over the fourth-turn wall as the cars were lining up. Bittner’s car ended up in the catch fence protecting the pit area, and required some time to disentangle. The driver was OK, but the car was done.

Once the race started, Dodson’s accident just past the two-thirds mark created the only caution. Three of the four heat races went non-stop, as did the b-main.

The Game Commission sponsorship included more than doubling the standard PASS purse, with $900 going to the race winner, and $450 to the last-place starter. This keeps the faith with RaceSaver racing’s commitment to equitable purse distribution among all racers. The race winner also received a custom Belair watch (with logos for the race, PASS, and the speedway) valued at more than $400, donated by Foss Jeweler’s of Selinsgrove.

A special t-shirt also was developed for the race, and a contingent of Game Commission team members were on hand to talk with fans, anticipating the strong interest cross-over between racing and hunting/trapping.

Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans was the Grand Marshal for the races and waved the green flag for the PASS/IMCA/RaceSaver feature.

Several PASS teams displayed their cars in front of the speedway entrance and signed hero cards for fans.

The River Valley Builders PASS tour returns to Selinsgrove next Saturday for the speedway’s season finale, the Jim Nace Memorial 40th Anniversary National Open for 410 sprints. The PASS racers will run qualifying events and a 20-lap feature as the night’s only support division.

The 2022 River Valley Builders PASS season will conclude October 22 at Port Royal Speedway with the annual running of the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge, the “Blue Collar Classic,” another high-payout race and annually the biggest car turnout of the season.

O’Reilly Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway

ORRVILLE – Cole Macedo is amid the best season of his young career, and the budding sprint car star put the exclamation point on it Saturday evening at the O’Reilly Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway near Orrville.

The Lemoore, California ace led all 35 laps of the $15,000-to-win Pete Jacobs Memorial, banking his largest payday in the process and his 12th overall victory of 2022 and second at WCS. Macedo’s triumph came aboard the Ray Brooks Racing-owned, Steve and Matt Linder-wrenched 18 in the rescheduled event that was originally slated for Labor Day weekend.

In the companion 305 sprint car program, Sandusky’s Brian Sebetto wired the field in claiming the $1,100-to-win 25-lap main event featuring many of the Attica-Fremont Speedway’s regulars. Sebetto’s winning ride came aboard Rich Farmer’s familiar black and blue 29.

Although Macedo entered the event as one of the heavy favorites, it was anything but easy for the transplanted west coast driver who calls Fremont home during the summer months. Sprint Car Hall of Famer and 2018 Pete Jacobs winner Tim Shaffer dogged Macedo’s Gill Construction-sponsored mount the entire distance before claiming the $6,000 second place payday while local favorite Trey Jacobs thrilled his hometown crowd by charging to third from his 24th starting slot.

Tyler Street recorded his ninth top-four finish of the season by claiming fourth, with “Lady Lightning” Paige Polyak rounding out the top five. Street also took home the $400 bonus by setting fast time courtesy of Jeff and Shannon Andrews of Integrity Auto and Truck Sales of Bucyrus.

Shaffer stayed glued to Macedo’s bumper during the early stages of the event, before a red for Stuart Brubaker halted action on lap three. WCS regular Chris Myers, western Pennsylvania up-and-comer Leyton Wagner, and newly crowned track champion Henry Malcuit diced it up behind the front row starters until Wagner jumped the cushion in turn 2 and exited the ballpark on lap 11. Both Brubaker and Wagner escaped injury.

Malcuit retired to the pit area a few laps later while challenging Shaffer for third, with local favorite Danny Mumaw doing likewise while running sixth. Shaffer closed to within two car lengths while Macedo negotiated lapped traffic during laps 18-25 before clean air vaulted his advantage before Shaffer once again closed the gap to a car length before another yellow slowed the field on lap 32.

“I wasn’t making good laps at all during traffic, and even though l didn’t know how close, l knew Tim had to have been right there,” said Macedo. “I think that yellow (lap 32) actually helped me because the brackets on our front wing actually broke and we were much better in clean air.”

Just after Macedo and the leaders took the white flag, however, a major mishap occurred in turn 1 as Myers, while losing power, was clipped and spun sideways with Ricky Peterson tagging the yellow 38 and flipping. Caleb Griffith also got upside down while trying to avoid the mayhem, with all three escaping uninjured but done for the night.

A white and green flag one-lap shootout followed with Macedo cruising home to victory with Shaffer a close second.

“We gave this thing all it had, but just wasn’t quite enough,” said Shaffer beside his Trevor Baker No. 45 tribute car in honor of the fallen former WCS competitor. “We closed on Cole in traffic, but he was better on restarts and an open track.”

Sebetto’s victory was less dramatic, but every bit as impressive. The former 410 track champion at Attica and Fremont rode the high side to a dominating victory, leading by nearly a half of lap on two different occasions.

“This track suits my style of running on the rail, and it seemed like no one else was riding the high line,” said Sebetto. “Rich (Farmer) has great equipment, and my crew deserves all the credit. We don’t race much, but tonight was a lot of fun and the track was just awesome.”

Tyler Shullick rode home second with Jimmy McGrath, Tyler Gunn, and Haldon Miller completing the top 5. Kasey Jedrzejek, while running third, catapulted over the guardrail between turns 3 and 4 on lap three to bring out the red. The winner of the recent Fremont Speedway annual Fair race escaped uninjured. Jeremy Lusk took home the $100 fast time award bonus from Integrity Auto and Truck Sales.

The next event on the WCS schedule is Sheldon Haudenschild’s High Limit Sprint Car Series Buckeye Brawl on Tuesday Sept. 27.

NATHAN HIGH EARNS FIRST WMR WIN IN WIRE-TO-WIRE PERFORMANCE AT ADOBE MOUNTAIN

Glendale, Ariz. (September 17, 2022) – Goodyear, Ariz.’s Nathan High led wire-to-wire for his first-career Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction victory on Saturday night at Adobe Mountain Speedway.

Champions Crowned at Skagit Speedway

9/17/22

Alger, WA - On the final night of point racing in 2022, four champions were crowned at Skagit Speedway. Three champions capped their year with main event wins, with Brett McGhie, Rick Smith and Adam Holtrop taking the feature win to go with their season title. Chase Goetz played the ultimate spoiler in the 360 division, taking the main event win while Jason Solwold won the track title.

Three different drivers each held the lead twice in the Budweiser 360 Sprints season finale. Jason Solwold led the first six laps before Chase Goetz snagged the top spot from him on a restart. Solwold drove back by Goetz to take the lead on lap eight, while Trey Starks moved himself into contention, driving from his seventh place starting spot to third. Solwold held the lead till lap fifteen when Starks got by him to take the top spot. As Starks went to extend his lead, he encountered mechanical failure, ending his night and handing the lead back to Solwold for a lap 18 restart. Jason looked to be working towards his second feature win of the year when his car lost speed, allowing Goetz to clear him for the lead on lap 25. It was all Chase the rest of the way in taking the win ahead of Colton Heath and Greg Hamilton. Despite whatever slowed him persisting through the checkered flag, Jason kept enough speed to finish fifth on the night and took home the season title in the process for the Shaylen Raye Motorsports team. Trey Starks was the fastest of the qualifying cars, while Solwold won the scramble.

It took six tries to get the Sportsman Sprint main up and running, with attrition playing a huge factor throughout the field. As the checkered flag fell, it was Brett McGhie leading every lap of the main event and securing the season championship in the process. Bill Rude and Steve Vague rounded out the podium. McGhie won the scramble. Malachi Gemmer secured fast time.

Rick Smith finished out his impressive season with another feature win for Team Geritol racing and a season championship to boot. Rick led all 25 laps of the main event without challenge after securing the pole position by winning the scramble. Second went to Ben Gunderson and third was Alan Grimbly.

Adam Holtrop capped off his championship with an entertaining win in the Hornet class. After winning the scramble, Holtrop chased Colin Sims around for four laps before sneaking by him on lap five and held strong the rest of the way for the win. Roger Burt came from dead last to challenge Holtrop late but would end up second while Brian Michelson started second to last and raced to third.

Johnson, Randall take home feature victories in Hockett-McMillin Memorial finales at Lucas Oil Speedway
 


WHEATLAND, MO. (Sept. 17, 2022) - An old pro and a youngster celebrated feature victories Saturday night at the 12th annual Jesse Hockett-Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway.

The veteran was Wayne Johnson, a two-time Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint champion who picked up his second Hockett-McMillin triumph in the winged portion of the open-wheel major.

Earlier, 18-year-old Chase Randall drove to victory in the POWRi War Sprint feature.

The victories, in front of a big crowd on the finale of the three-night event, were memorable for both drivers. The Hockett-McMillin Memorial recognizes the legacy of Jesse Hockett, from Warsaw, Missouri, who was a star in both the winged and non-wing sprint divisions when he lost his life in a shop accident in 2010. His cousin and crew chief, Daniel McMillin, was killed in an automobile accident in 2006.

Eight-starting Johnson, of Oklahoma City, took the lead on lap 25 and held it the rest of the way in the 40-lap ASCS feature to capture his second Hockett-McMillin Memorial. Johnson outdistanced runner-up Blake Hahn to earn the $10,000 prize.

"He's like a second dad to me," an emotional Johnson said in victory lane, standing next to Jack Hockett, Jesse's father. "I loved the boy. Jesse was like a brother to me. We did a lot together."

Dylan Westbrook started on the pole and cleared to the early lead with the third-starting Sam Hafertepe settling in behind him.

Three-time Hockett-McMillin winner Hafertepe grabbed the lead coming off turn two on lap five and quickly pulled away to a 1.5-second cushion over Westbrook over the next two laps. Aryton Gennetten moved into the runner-up position by lap nine with Westbrook falling back into third.

The leaders hit lapped traffic by that point and Gennetten, using the low groove, was able to cut the lead to just under one second before Hafertepe again opened it up to 1.66 seconds before the race’s first caution appeared on lap 15.

Johnson, 51, made his way past Gennetten for second on the restart with Blake Hahn moving into third as Gennetten fell back. That’s the way the top four were running when another caution slow things on lap 19, when Hafertepe’s lead was a half-second over Johnson.

Hafertepe, Johnson and Hahn broke away from the field after the restart and Johnson, hugging the low groove, took his first lead coming out of turn four to complete lap 25.

Johnson said it felt like fate was on his side at that point.

"Every one of them damn cautions came out at the right time. I lost the brakes," Johnson said. "I'm sure my brake rotors were glowing. I had no pedal left every time the caution came out and it saved my butt. I'm pretty sure ol' Jesse wanted me to win this race and he got them cautions for me."

Johnson wasted no time opening a two-second lead as Hahn moved into second and Hafertepe fell back to third. Johnson was 1.8 seconds in front when a red flag on lap 30, for Westbrook’s flip in turn two, brought the action to a halt. Westbrook, who was running eighth, climbed from the car without assistance.

That left 10 laps to go when action resumed Johnson roared away from Hahn to add a Hockett-McMillin trophy to the one he earned in 2016. Johnson finished 1.3 seconds in front of 2019 winner Hahn with Bogucki coming home in third.

Hahn said he had mixed feelings about coming up short. While disappointed he did not win, he was able to ride on seven cylinders to the finish.

"About halfway through the race we had some motor issues," Hahn said. "We had 20 laps to go with it bogging down, but thankfully she held. It's just pretty frustrating. I felt like I owed it to my team to pick up a victory. We had a really good car tonight, but to be able to finish on the podium with seven cylinders is something to be proud of."

Hafertepe settled for fourth with Matt Covington rallying from 11th to fifth.

Randall takes command late for WAR win: Chase Randall took command with eight laps remaining and held on to earn the 30-lap POWRi WAR Sprint feature victory. The 18-year-old from Waco, Texas, earned $4,077 for the triumph.

Randall beat Mario Clouser by .602 seconds to back up his Friday-night preliminary feature victory. Clouser had won on Thursday and the two started on the front row of Saturday's big finale.

"Man, this is an awesome weekend," said Randall, who also ran in the ASCS Sprint feature. "We came here to run non-wing just for fun with the ASCS and I think we might fun it a little bit more now. The car's obviously working well. My dad has this EMI chassis tuned up well.

"This kind of track just suits my style, just throw it up in there and hope it sticks. It was a great race with Mario."

Clouser, of Chatham, Illinois, used a slider in turn three to take the lead from Randall as the two front-row starters dueled on the opening lap. He was able to clear out to a 1.6-second lead by lap seven as Wyatt Burks closed in on the rear of Randall.

The race’s first caution flew on lap seven and bunched the field for a restart. Clouser maintained command as green-flag action resumed, but another caution slowed the field on lap nine.

Just as Clouser had rebuilt a 1.5-second lead by lap 14, his margin again was negated by the event’s third yellow flag just one lap shy of the halfway mark.

Clouser didn’t get away as easily on the next restart, with Randall, defending race champ Wesley Smith and Burks closely following before a lap-19 caution waved.

Randall used a slide job out of turn four to take the lead for the first time, on lap 22. Clouser stalked him over the next several laps, briefly going in front in turn two on lap 27, but was unable to make it stick.

"He threw a hail Mary slide job at the end and I didn't see it coming until the last second," Randall said. "It was a good race."

Randall held on the rest of the way to pick up the victory, finishing about three car lengths in front of Clouser who admitted his disappointment in coming up just short of his first Hockett-McMillin victory.

"I don't know if I just ran it too hard there early and burnt the tire off it, but we definitely didn't have anything left at the end," Clouser said. "I don't even know what to say. I didn't want to run second tonight, at all.

"It's especially frustrating. We've been fast here, but haven't been able to get it done on Saturday yet."

Smith wound up third with Casey Shuman fourth and Burks coming home in fifth.

HICKLE WINS TOM KNOWLES MEMORIAL; SCORES FIRST CAREER #MOWASPRINTS VICTORY.

Canton, IL (September 17, 2022) - J.J. Hickle earned his first Morrow Brothers Ford MOWA Sprint Car Series event in Saturday's 35th Annual Tom Knowles Memorial at Spoon River Speedway.

Hickle, driving the NineSix Motorsports entry for Nathan Charron and Levi Curry started 8th and led the final 10 laps after becoming comfortable with the high-banked surface of Spoon River Speedway.

“Man, I’ve just gotta thank Nate and Levi and everyone involved with this NineSix Motorsports car. I expected the track to slick off a bit for the feature, but these guys made all the right adjustments and I’m glad to have gotten a win for them”, said Hickle in Victory Lane.

Korey Weyant, taking over the seat of the Samonds Racing #47 in the second part of the season after the untimely passing of Terry Babb, started from the pole of the field and showed dominance early in the feature. Plagued by two yellow flags before reaching lap five, the biggest mover was J.J. HIckle, who moved from eighth to third in just five laps. With Weyant leading, Andy Bishop had to switch to defense mode as Hickle continued to move forward. Hickle passed Bishop with ease on lap 7 and had moved into second and caught Weyant on the backstretch attempting to make a pass for the lead before Luke Verardi slowed to bring out a caution flag.

Weyant led the field back to green and knew Hickle was quickly closing in. Working lap 10, Hickle slid past Weyant in turn four to take the lead. Weyant dropped to second, as the battle for third through fifth picked up with Cory Bruns, Paul Nienhiser and Corbin Gurley swapping back and forth.

Hickle was out to a two second lead over Korey Weyant, who was fighting back challenges from Paul Nienhiser as the field worked into lapped traffic. Nienhiser moved past Weyant just as a yellow flag bunched the field for a slowing Chase Richards atop turn two.

With eight laps remaining, J.J. Hickle continued to lead with a hard-charging Paul Nienhiser in second. Nienhiser put his #9X on the top side of the speedway, in hopes of tracking down Hickle. Nienhiser unfortunately slowed atop turn four after losing a right-rear wheel, which ended his bid for another Tom Knowles Memorial victory. Korey Weyant inherited second after the caution, with Corbin Gurey, Josh Schneiderman and Logan Faucon rounding out the top five.

With three laps remaining, Korey Weyant slowed running second to draw caution again before retiring with terminal issues to his #47 Samonds Racing entry. Hickle continued to lead with Corbin Gurley moving into second, with Tyler Duff, Josh Schneiderman and Chris Urish moving into the trop five.

Duff’s #9 machine slowed on the ensuing restart as he slid back through the field, collecting Cole Mincer who then got upside down as the field approached two laps to go, slowing the field once more.

A two lap shootout set the field for the finish of the A-Main. Hickle executed a great restart and never looked back as he went on to win the Tom Knowles Memorial over Corbin Gurley, Josh Schniderman, Chris Urish, who earned the BMRS Hard Charger Award after advancing 14 spots, and Caden Englehart who rounded out the top five.

Feature Finish: 1. J.J. Hickle, 2. Corbin Gurley, 3. Josh Schneiderman, 4. Chris Urish, 5. Caden Englehart, 6. Bret Triplett, 7. Austin Archdale, 8. Tyler Duff, 9. Jeremy Standridge, 10. Korey Weyant, 11. Andy Bishop, 12. Cole Mincer, 13. Paul Nienhiser, 14. Logan Faucon, 15. Chase Richards, 16. Cory Bruns, 17. Brayton Lynch, 18. Shelby Bosie, 19. Luke Verardi, 20. Reece Saldana, 21.

Chase Randall Claims Championship Night of JHDMM in POWRi WAR
Belleville, IL. (9/17/22) Chase Randall would ride the wave of winning momentum into the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League Championship Night of the Twelfth Annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway feature event Saturday Night to capture his second career league win in epic fashion.

Early on track accomplishments of the championship night with fifty-eight entries would witness Cody Baker clock fast-time in hot laps with a 15.839-second-lap as Xavier Doney earned the quickest time in lock-in hot lap action with a 16.661-second lap after an early intermission track rework. Casey Shuman, Jesse Vermillion, Justin Zimmerman, and Isaac Chapple would each notch semi-feature racing victories. Going perfect on prelim-night one would see Mario Clouser gain the high point qualifier award with Chase Randall also earning a front-row starting spot.

Battling on the initial green flag start would find Mario Clouser combat front-row companion Chase Randall into the first pair of corners with Mario Clouser gaining the early race lead as Chase Randall, Wyatt Burks, Wesley Smith, and Landon Simon attempted to run down the speedy leader.

Keeping the field of drivers behind him, Clouser would maintain the point of the field through a flurry of restarts as Chase Randall stayed within striking distance. Mounting a charge to the front, Randall would make the winning pass for the lead on lap twenty-two of thirty.

Sliding into the lead, Chase Randall would hold off all the late-stage battles for the top spot to clinch the championship night honors while earning his second career feature win within POWRi WAR racing. One-time leader Mario Clouser would finish in the runner-up positioning with Wesley Smith clinching the final podium placement in the event.

“What an awesome weekend, we came to just have some fun with the non-wings but now I think we’re going to have to race this class a little more. This track suits the style of driving; I love, the throw it in the corner and hope it sticks kind of racing,” said an elated Chase Randall in the Lucas Oil Speedway Victory Lane ceremony.

Maintaining a solid showing all night, Casey Shuman would wheel his way to way to finish fourth as Wyatt Burks rounded out the top-five finishers in the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League feature event at Lucas Oil Speedway on Championship Night of the Twelfth Annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial.

Mintz wins 410 thriller at Fremont; Gregory holds on for late model victory; Miller earns 4th truck win

Saturday, Sept. 17, 2022

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Craig Mintz capped off his vacation with a thrilling 410 sprint win at Fremont Speedway Saturday, Sept. 17 on Roots Poultry Night. The three time Fremont champion and current point leader, nipped defending track champion DJ Foos by .020 seconds for his third win of the season at “The Track That Action Built.”

After Bobby Elliott led the first lap of the 30-lap Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint feature, veteran John Ivy took over, leading until Mintz rocked off the high side of turn two to gain the top spot on the 11th circuit. Mintz, who had vacationed out of the country all week, watched Foos slip by on the white flag lap. When Foos slid a lapped car in the final two turns, Mintz turned under both and the drag race to the checkers was on with Mintz edging Foos for the narrow win. Ivy, Jamie Miller and Dan McCarron rounded out the top five.

“If you don’t like that you are in the wrong sport. DJ and I banged wheels…there wasn’t anything there…we banged wheels again…that’s just going for the win. That’s a blast. Hats off to my guys. We have to get better early on. These guys have been busting their tails all week. I haven’t even been in the states and they worked on it all week and I showed up this morning and everything was ready to go,” said Mintz beside his Real Geese Decoys, KS Sales & Service, Modern Woodman of America, Design Graphics Group, Wonderly Carpet Care backed #09.

“Two or three laps before the end I tried to slide up in front of that lapped car and he didn’t give me room so I knew if he (Foos) slid him he wasn’t going to give him any room and I thought if he’s going to slide up I’m going to arch it the other way and slide DJ as best I could. I knew it was going to be close,” added Mintz.

In a caution-filled Steel Block Late Model Series feature, Corey Delancey led the first eight laps before encountering mechanical woes, turning the lead over to Seth Daniels who held the point for four laps. Lyons, Ohio’s BJ Gregory was the only top five car to utilize the top groove and he drove into the lead on lap 13. A caution with just three laps to go allowed Daniels to challenge until a caution flew just after the white flag fell. Gregory got a fantastic restart and drove to the win over Daniels, Zach Milbee, Pete Crum and 16th starter Carter Murday.

The victory is the second Fremont win of his career for Gregory who also won the Steel Block Late Model Series event at Fremont in 2021. It also comes after a crash Friday in Michigan that had the #56 crew working to rebuilt to the wee hours of Saturday morning.

“It’s been a tough weekend and a tough season. We’ve run pretty well this year but had some tough luck and difficult things happen. Last night was no exception to that. We went up to Mt. Pleasant and things didn’t go as well as we planned. We were running good in the feature but late in the race we got caught up in a wreak and tore up almost every panel on the car, junked a bumper…it was a long night and long day. Got home at 3 in the morning and started again at 7. I have to thank my brother Brandon…all year long he’s the set-up guy and makes this thing fast and I just drive it. My tire guy Nate and on these open tires he has had a lot of work. My mom and dad and all the family members,” said Gregory beside his Aquatek Water Conditioning, Turnworks Machine & Fabrication, Robertson EDM, Chasin’ Checkers, CCR the Racers Connection backed machine.

Fremont, Ohio’s Jamie Miller nursed a smoking truck to victory lane Saturday, leading all 20 laps of the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck A-main for his fourth win of the season in the division. Miller now has 35 total career feature wins at the track, putting him 14th on the all-time win list. The victory also will vault Miller into the division point lead.

“Something went wrong with the brakes that last lap and I had to really get out of the gas and nurse it through the last two corners. The motor is tired but it held out for the win. I want to thank Tim and all his family for putting this truck deal together,” said Miller beside his Fostoria Mod Shop backed #4m.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, Sept 24 with the 410 and 305 sprints and dirt trucks in action. On Sunday, Sept. 25, the vintage cars take over for the Johnny Auxter Day.

About Root’s Poultry - https://www.rootspoultry.com

Wayne Root was stringing phone lines when the Great Depression hit. To support his family, Root began buying produce and other foods from local farmers and taking them to market in the Cleveland area. In Cleveland, he would purchase products to bring back and sell to the farmers. At some point Wayne started raising his own chickens to butcher and take to market and that evolved into a chicken processing facility.

The facility where Roots Poultry is located today near Fremont opened in early 1956. It still had an area in the back where chickens were brought in, a processing area in the middle and, in the front, a retail store. Due to a change in federal law, Wayne quit raising and dressing his own chickens and Roots became a processor. Later, Wayne’s grandchildren Mark and Mike Damschroder were working in the business and in 1985 bought it from their grandmother. Mark later bought Mike’s portion of the business though Mike remains active in the company.

The company had evolved to the point that it was producing ready-to-eat chicken products. Shredded chicken became the company’s bread-and-butter product, but later the company added barbeque pork and other pork and beef products under the Daisyfield brand. Today Roots produces over two dozen products and all can be found in the freezer section at area retail stores.

NIENHISER SCORES #MOWASPRINTS VICTORY IN SCHUH-BARLOW MEMORIAL; BECOMES WINNINGEST DRIVER IN SERIES HISTORY

Jacksonville, IL (September 16, 2022) Friday night at Jacksonville Speedway couldn’t have gone any better for Paul Nienhiser. The Chapin, Illinois picked up his second Morrow Brothers Ford MOWA Sprint Car Series feature event of 2022 in front of a hometown crowd on a night that meant so much.

Nienhiser and Cory Bruns led the field to the green flag, with Nienhiser getting the advantage. A lap one melee slowed the field when Jacob Patton got upside down, collecting Eric Shelton, Ryan Edwards and Luke Verardi. Patton escaped without injury.

NIenhiser again jumped out front as the field went back to green. Cory Bruns was able to pull away from JJ Hickle to take command of the second spot, while Hickle battled Korey Weyant for third. A spinning Brady Parmeley brought out the caution on lap three.

Restarting with 22 laps remaining, Nienhiser brought the field back to life. Korey Weyant was able to stay with Bruns on and made his into second and began to chase down the race leader. A two-second lead for Nienhiser was erased after Shelby Bosie spun around in turn four.

Laps continued to wind down with Nienhiser continuing to show the way. Jake Neuman, who started ninth had maneuvered through the field into the fourth position by lap 12. Nienhiser was able to again extend his lead to over two seconds over Korey Weyant who continued to run second ahead of Cory Bruns when Shelby Bosie spun around in turn four to draw caution once again.

With Nienhiser continuing to lead, the battle behind him was heating up as Weyant and Bruns were sliding each other for the second spot. Brayton Lynch worked to the inside of Jake Neuman in the middle of turns three and four, making contact with Neuman’s #3N before collecting Jason Keith who saw his night end early from getting upside down.

Down to 10 laps remaining, Nienhiser continued to dominate with action picking up behind him with JJ Hickle chasing Jake Neuan for fourth. Nienhiser had navigated through lapped traffic with seven laps remaining to see the field slow again as Luke Verardi and Caden Englehart spun in turn two.

A seven lap shootout with Nienhiser at the point, set the field up for the final restart. Nienhiser pulled away to a comfortable lead as Jake Neuman got a great restart to overtake Korey Weyant and eventually Cory Bruns for second with two laps to go. Neuman worked his way to the front and was within striking distance, as the top two battled down the backstretch for the final time. Neuman looked inside of Nienhiser, but to no avail. Nienhiser picked up his 23rd series career victory, ahead of Neuman, Bruns, Weyant and Corbin Gurley. Ryan Bunton, who started 23rd on the field, advanced 15 spots to earn the BMRS Hard Charger Award after finishing 8th.

As Nienhiser exited his #9X machine to a standing ovation, with a smile on his face, it finally sunk in. “Man, Jerrod set the bar extremely high many years ago. I think it took me longer to get here, but to be able to say you have more wins than (Jerrod) Hull with MOWA is really, really cool” said Nienhiser in Victory Lane.

The Morrow Brothers Ford MOWA Sprint Car Series will make the trip to Spoon River Speedway tomorrow, September 17 for the 35th Annual Tom Knowles Memorial.

Feature Results: 1. Paul Nienhiser, 2. Jake Neuman, 3. Cory Bruns, 4. Korey Weyant, 5. Corbin Gurley, 6. J.J. Hickle, 7. Jeremy Standridge, 8. Ryan Bunton, 9. Tyler Duff, 10. Trevin Littleton, 11. Caden Englehart, 12. Shelby Bosie, 13. Eric Shelton, 14. Logan Faucon, 15. Brayton Lynch, 16. Brady Parmeley, 17. McCain Richards, 18. Luke Verardi, 19. Jason Keith, 20. Colton Fisher, 21. Jacob Patton, 22. Ryan Edwards, 23. Will Armitage (DNS)

 

 

Lynch takes 410 portion of Burns Memorial; Ferree takes ULMS Portion at Dog Hollow
For immediate release September 16, 2022

Strongstown, PA - Sye Lynch of Cowansville picked up the $5,000 payday for the 410 Sprint part of the Burns Brothers Memorail Friday night at Dog Hollow Speedway while Saxonburgs Alex Ferree picked up the ULMS Portion of the action.
Other winners as part of the Memorial Chevrolet Hustle @ the Hollow include Michael Duritsky of Masontown in the Townsend Gas and Oil RUSH Late Models, Andrew Gordon of Brookville in the Pro Stock feature, Adam Pletcher of Tire Hill copped the Texas Auto Ranch Four Cylinder feature and it was John Eckenrod of Ebensburg taking the win in the RUSH Stock Car feature.

The 410 Sprint cars showed up with 20 cars strong to put on a show of speed for the fans, as Scotty Thiel and Sye Lunch led the field to the green flag, with Thiel taking the lead. A pair of cautions would slow the race on the opening lap, then as Theil led the field into the first turn on lap two, on the second restart, he went high and sailed off the second turn, which would put him to the rear of the field, and it put Lynch in the lead. The final 24 laps went non-stop, as Lynch set a blistering pace, working his way in and out of slower traffic. As he was leaving the rest of the field, AJ Flick, Ryan Smith and Billy Dietrich were jockeying for second spot and Flick won that fight. At the waving of Brian Biancuzzio’s double checkered flags, it was Lynch taking the win over Flick, Dietrich, Smith and Dan Shetler. Heat wins went to Thiel, Lynch and Flick.

The Subway of Downtown Clearfield UMLS Super Late Models saw Matt Cosner and Jon Lee on the front row, as Lee took the initial lead, but he charged into the first turn a little too hard, going off the second turn and bringing out the caution. This would put Lee to the back, but a flat tire put him in the pits and out of action. The restart saw Joey Petyak line up on the outside pole, and at the start it was Cosner taking the lead and Petyak was second. Cautions on laps six and eight for a spinning Tom Schrinhofer, Jr. slowed the race. Cosner continued to set the pace, with Jason Covert taking the lead from Cosner on lap nine. He was holding tough and setting the pace when Alex Ferree charged into the lead and kept all challengers to a minimum, as he picked up the win over Andrew Wylie, Ryan Montgomery was third from 24th, Covert was fourth and Ross Bailes was fifth. Heat wins went to Lee, Petyak and Covert.

The RUSH Late Models saw Danny Angelicchio and Michael Duritsky on the front row, as Angelicchio got out of the gate first, and led the first lap before Duritsky took the lead and he never relinquished it, as he picked up the win. Braden Dillinger was second with Clinton Hersh, Angelicchio and Brady Wonderling completing the top five. Angelicchio and Duritsky split heat wins.

The Pro Stock feature had some problems getting completed, as Fuzzy Fields and Jake Weyer lined up beside each other, as Fields took the initial lead and set through a few cautions before Andrew Gordon took the lead on lap four. While Gordon led the race from green to checkered, he didn’t hesitate to kick it in high gear, as he went on to get the win over Brandon Connor, Bruce Hartzfeld, Tim Bish and Chase Lambert. Heat wins went to Fields, Weyer and Connor.

It was all Adam Pletcher in the Four Cylinder feature, as he got off the line before Joseph Beningo and he never gave up the lead, many tried, including Shawn Hadden, Beningo and Ashton Daughenbaugh. When the 20 lap grind was over it was Pletcher getting the win over Daughenbaugh, Dave Diethrick, Michael Sinclair and Bill Eckenrode. Heat wins went to Pletcher, Beningo and Eckenrode.

John Eckenrod won the RUSH Stock Cars shootout over Tim Laughard. The feature saw Eckenrod lead the whole race, but Laughard was right there and up for the challenge, but coming up a tad short at the line.

Dog Trax: 102 cars filled the pits, including: 26 ULMS Late Models, 20 410 Sprints, 16 RUSH Late Models, 18 Pro Stocks, 20 Four Cylinders and 2 RUSH Stock Cars…The Pine Township Fire Co. 50/50 was $1,740…Tonight is the Tom Smith Memorial and night two of the Hustle @ the Hollow.

Chase Randall Wins Night Two POWRi WAR of JHDMM at Lucas Oil

Belleville, IL. (9/16/22) Chase Randall would use a late-race restart to perfection with the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League feature event in Night Two of the Twelfth Annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway Friday Night to notch his inaugural career league feature victory.

Early on track accomplishments of the second split prelim night with thirty-two entries would witness Wesley Smith clock fast-time in group qualifying with 15.409-second-lap as Chase Randall, Zach Daum, Ricky Lewis, and Wesley Smith each notched heat racing victories. Riley Kreisel would earn the semi-feature win with Wesley Smith gaining the high point qualifier award after preliminary competition.

Battling on the initial green flag start would find Wesley Smith combat front-row companion Chase Randall into the first pair of corners with Randall gaining the early race lead as Landon Simon quickly gained the front of the field.

Keeping the field of drivers behind him, Simon would appear to be the quickest until a caution with nine laps remaining would alter his attempts of winning on the night after stretching out a commanding lead.

Restarting with less than ten laps remaining, Simon would be in an instant-classic battle with Chase Randall and Wesley Smith each riding the high lines with the intent of winning. Randall would edge around Simon to take the lead as Smith would launch for the lead on the final lap.

Battling until the bitter end as the checkers waved, Chase Randall would top off the night by winning for the first time with POWRi WAR as Wesley Smith would finish in the runner-up positioning by less than half a second with one-time leader Landon Simon clinching the final podium placement in the event.

“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate a birthday, this is a huge win for this team. I don’t get to race non-wing very often but I love it with action like this” said a celebratory Chase Randall in the Lucas Oil Speedway winner’s circle.

Maintaining a solid showing all night, Jack Wagner would wheel his way to way to finish fourth as Ricky Lewis rounded out the top-five finishers in the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League feature event at Lucas Oil Speedway on Night Two of the annual prestigious event.

Crawley, Clouser earn feature wins as 12th annual Hockett-McMillin Memorial opens at Lucas Oil Speedway

WHEATLAND, MO. (Sept. 15, 2022) - Veteran Tim Crawley led all the way to pick up the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series feature win on opening night of the 12th annual Jesse Hockett-Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Meanwhile, Illinois' Mario Clouser was first to the checkers on the non-wing side of things as he earned the POWRi WAR Sprint main event Thursday night.

A total of 107 cars, including 78 ASCS Sprints, were in action on Thursday with the other half of the WAR Sprints scheduled to compete on Friday night for their preliminary program. Drivers in both divisions are compiling points toward the starting field on Saturday night.

The event recognizes the legacy of Jesse Hockett, from Warsaw, Missouri, who was a star in both the winged and non-wing sprint divisions when he lost his life in a shop accident in 2010. His cousin and crew chief, Daniel McMillin, was killed in an automobile accident in 2006.

Crawley, of Benton, Arkansas, started up front and led all 25 laps en route to the $3,000 Lucas Oil ASCS feature victory. He held off Derek Hagar in a race that ran caution-free and took only 7 minutes, 4 seconds.

"We work out butts off and this is what makes it all worthwhile," Crawley said. "We lost a good friend at home this week to cancer and then here's the Jesse and McMillin deal here. This all means a lot to me, it really does."

Crawley points to his trophy and noted that he already has one Hockett-McMillin prelim trophy on his wall at home.

"Here's another and we've got two more nights. I've got room for two more," Crawley said in victory lane. Saturday night's finale pays $10,000 to the ASCS feature winner.

Crawley, starting outside of row one, grabbed the lead at the start but Hagar and Joe B. Miller were close behind through the first five laps.

By lap 10, Crawley had gradually built a 1.5-second lead over Hagar in the extended green-flag run. He was able to navigate lapped traffic to maintain the margin as the laps quickly clicked away and opened a 2.2-second command with five remaining.

Crawley held on from there to beat fellow Arkansas driver Hagar by 1.2 seconds. Mark Smith finished third with Miller fourth and Wayne Johnson in fifth.

"We got to the lead and I started creeping down and once I got into the rubber, I didn't push it too hard," Crawley said. "I knew it was going to be hard to pass and I wasn't going to get out of line. I actually let the lapped cars go. I started pedaling and hitting my marks.

"Sometimes you don't have to lap a whole bunch of cars to win, you just have to stay in position and that's what I was trying to do."

Clouser earns POWRi WAR win: Mario Clouser of Chatham, Illinois, took control after an early back-and-forth battle and led the final 20 laps to earn his 13th career POWRi WAR Sprint feature victory.

Clouser beat Wyatt Burks by just over a second to locked himself into Saturday night's $4,077-to-win main event.

"I was a little nervous there. Wyatt got by us a couple of times early and I had to kind of hustle to get him back," Clouser said after his $2,000 triumph.

Clouser said Burks showed him a line early in the race of using the high groove in turns one and two and the low line in three and four.

"I was afraid that might be the scenario. It's up over the edge there off four," Clouser said. "You just can't carry enough momentum there to make it work. I won one here a couple of years ago where you had to run high down there and low down here."

Clouser, who set fast qualifying time earlier in the evening before winning his heat race, started on the pole and led the opening lap. But Isaac Chapple used a pass out of turn four to lead lap two before the two swapped places again on lap five.

A close battle between the leaders began to see separation by lap 12 as Clouser opened a two-second lead over Chapple. Wyatt Burks moved into second a lap later with seventh-starting Schudy advancing to fourth.

Clouser’s lead hit 2.5 seconds by lap 17 as he weaved his way through lapped traffic. That comfortable margin was wiped away, however, when a caution flag flew with eight laps to go.

Clouser was able to hang onto the lead after the restart, holding off Burks by 1.08 seconds with Joe B. Miller rallying from 13th to third. Xavier Domey finished fourth with Casey Shuman fifth.

"It's good to get a prelim-night win," Clouser said. "We just need to finish it on Saturday. We've been close a couple of times. It would be nice to seal the deal and get one. I really want to win this race, probably worse than any race in the country right now."

Mario Clouser Claims Night One of JHDMM with POWRi WAR at Lucas Oil

Belleville, IL. (9/15/22) Mario Clouser would remain perfect on the night with the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League feature event in Night One of the Twelfth Annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway Thursday Night to notch his thirteenth career league feature victory.

Early on track accomplishments of the first split prelim night with twenty-nine entries would witness Mario Clouser clock fast-time in group qualifying with 15.328-second-lap as Jason Howell, Wyatt Burks, Isaac Chapple, and Mario Clouser each notched heat racing victories. Xavier Doney would earn the semi-feature win with Mario Clouser gaining the high point qualifier award after preliminary competition.

Battling on the initial green flag start would find Mario Clouser combat front-row companion Isaac Chapple into the first pair of corners with Clouser gaining the early race lead as Wyatt Burks, Isaac Chapple, Casey Shuman, and Kory Schudy all battled inside the first three rows of competition in close contention for the front.

Grabbing the preferred position in front after the initial few laps would witness Wyatt Burks briefly overtake Mario Clouser for the lead momentarily as Clouser would mount a comeback to the front of the field, never to relinquish the top spot.

Keeping the field of drivers behind him, Clouser would perfect the night by winning for the second time in 2022 as Wyatt Burks would finish in the runner-up positioning with thirteenth-starting Joe B Miller clinching the final podium placement in the event.

“I was nervous when Wyatt got by early, I knew I had to hustle to get the lead back. The line was over the edge off of four and it was tricky, luckily, I have a little experience with that, Now I just have to finish this thing off Saturday,” said a victorious Clouser in the Lucas Oil Speedway winner’s circle.

Maintaining a solid showing all night, Xavier Doney would hard-charge his way to way to finish fourth as Casey Shuman rounded out the top-five finishers in the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League feature event at Lucas Oil Speedway on Night One.

New Richmond, WI, September 10, 2022

The Traditional Sprint cars of the Pirtek Renegades were back at Cedar Lake Speedway to celebrate the 22nd annual Jerry Richert memorial race. Twenty-one sprinters signed in to do battle, in three 7-car qualifiers. Pirtek heat race #1, which was actually run third after some extended surface preparation, saw the #54 of Cam Schafer bring home the win from the second row. RTS podcast heat #2 went Jake Kouba, while “Surfin’ Safari” Brad Peterson bested the field in CLS heat #3. Peterson and Schafer accumulated identical 138 passing points for top honors in that category. Saturday was also the third and final installment of the GT Transport Hot Shot Challenge. The top six points earners from the heat races all were given the option of forfeiting their scheduled starting position - and head tail end for the start - in pursuit of a whopping $3,000 bonus paid out by GT Transport. Of the six eligible drivers, Cam Schafer and Scott Brandt took up the challenge.

With Schafer giving up the catbird’s seat for the challenge, that put Brad Peterson and Nick DaRonco on the front row. At the drop of the green, Peterson led DaRonco, Johnny Parsons, Mike Mueller, and Jon Lewerer through lap one, with DaRonco taking over the top spot on the second circuit. At the back, Schafer and Brandt went to work immediately and started slicing their way forward, as the pair had already worked their way up to 11th and 12th when a caution flew just four laps in. Back under green, DaRonco began pulling a gap ahead of Parsons, Peterson, Jake Kouba and Mueller. On a restart after the caution on lap eleven, Schafer worked from sixth to fourth in his dogged pursuit of the GT bonus cash. As the laps clicked off, DaRonco increased his lead over the second running Peterson and Schafer, who had clawed his way up to third. At the double checkers, it was Nick DaRonco extending his CLS winning streak to five, ahead of Peterson, Schafer, Mueller and Kouba. With no driver able to claim the GT Transport Hot Shot Challenge, the $3,000 bounty was split evenly among the drivers who competed in all three GT Transport events this summer.

The Pirtek Renegade season wraps up this weekend for both the winged and traditional sprint cars as they participate in the annual Legendary 100 at Cedar Lake on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, September, 15 - 17. More information on upcoming events for the Pirtek Renegades, as well as links to other Renegades series, can be found at www.umsprints.com, or on facebook.

DYKSTRA OPENS BROCKVILLE WEEKEND WITH AST WIN

By Tommy Goudge

BROCKVILLE, Ont. (September 9, 2022) – Jacob Dykstra was back in victory lane after an Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty's event on Friday night, this time at Brockville Ontario Speedway.

The first of two weekend events for AST at Brockville began with Lee Ladouceur and Jacob Dykstra on the front row. Dykstra wasted no time taking the lead, but row four starter Matt Billings was on the move. Dykstra led flag-to-flag, but Billings made a late charge to cross the finish line second.

Ladouceur ended up being scored as the runner-up, however, as Billings' car was too light at the scales. Darren Dryden took the final podium spot from row five, followed by Mathieu Bardier and Ashton VanEvery.

By Tommy Goudge

BROCKVILLE, Ont. (September 10, 2022) – Jacob Dykstra completed a sweep of the Trailer Pros Canada Sprint Race Weekend at Brockville Ontario Speedway on Saturday night. Dykstra also claimed the win on Friday night, and extended his Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty's championship points lead heading into the final four races of the season.

Johnny Miller and Matt Billings started on the front row for Saturday's 25 lap A-Main, and Billings led the first 10 laps before fifth row starter Dykstra slipped past and drove away. Dykstra led the rest of the way, while Billings took the runner-up spot. Lee Ladouceur took the final podium spot, followed by Tyeller Powless and Johnny Miller. Darren Dryden came from row eight to finish sixth, narrowly missing a top five.

Action Sprint Tour officials wish to thank everyone for their donations to Sprint Car driver Paul Pekkonen on Saturday night. A total of $1102.45 was raised to help defray Paul’s medical costs; he was seriously injured while working in his shop last week.

Shawn Jones Shines at Gold Cup Opener

(PETERSEN MEDIA-Placerville, CA)- Running extremely well during the NorCal Posse Shootout over Labor Day Weekend, Shawn Jones was not to be denied at the opening night of Gold Cup on Wednesday night in Chico, CA as a strong showing saw him park the Pries Motorsports entry in victory lane.

Lining up on the pole of the 20-lap feature event on what was a 20-car invitational race, Jones jumped out to the lead and would set a torrid pace on the hooked up racing surface.

While action behind him led to a few stoppages, Jones would not let restarts hinder him as he hit his marks and mashed the throttle for 20-laps. With a big pay day up for grabs courtest of added sponsorship from C&H Veteran Ent., Joe Hunt Magnetos, and Transport Products Unlimited, Jones’ Wedesnday night triumph was worth $2,000.00.

Up front it was all about Jones, behind him Daniel Whitley and Jarrett Soares continued their strong runs just as they did at Placerville over the previous weekend and the duo rounded out the podium.

With 20-cars checked in for the invitational event, a draw show was used, and heat races wins went to Brent Steck and Shane Hopkins. Both drivers took home $100 for their efforts courtesy of Dependable Crane.

Jake Morgan finished 10th and Shane Hopkins finished 20th, and they each took home $100 from BioRational Vector Control LLC.

The Hard Charger on Wednesday night was Eathon Lanfri and he was awarded $100 from Transport Products Unlimited for his charge in the feature.

Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints

Weedsport, New York -

Phoenix, New York's Larry Wight continued his hot streak by winning his second consecutive Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints A Main at Weedsport Speedway on Saturday night. Wight took over the top spot on lap eight and held off a hard charging Jordan Poirier late in the race to secure the win, his third overall for the year. Tyler Cartier led the 25 car field down to Dave Farney's green flag with Danny Varin and Larry Wight lurking in the next two rows. Varin and Wight quickly made their way to the front by lap two and both were in lapped traffic by lap five. Wight grabbed the lead on lap eight and opened up a four car lead on Varin with Davie Franek and Joe Trenca within striking distance of Varin. A couple of early race red flags kept the field bunched together but took out Cartier on lap 6 and Shawn Donath and Dylan Swiernik on lap 10. All drivers were ok but done for the night. Halfway through the race, current point leader Jordan Poirier (from 10th) and 2019 champion Paulie Colagiovanni (from 13th) were making their presence known as they pushed towards the front. Varin's night ended as the 01 snapped a rear axle while tracking down the 99L of Wight on lap 16. The lap 16 restart had Wight leading with Colagiovanni, Franek, Trenca and Poirier in hot pursuit. Poirier made his way into second by lap 21 and was closing the gap on Wight but ran out of time, finishing second. Following Wight and Poirier across the line were Colagiovanni, Franek and Trenca. Billy VanInwegen ran well finishing sixth followed by Scott Kreutter, Chuck Hebing, Jason Barney with modified driver Chris Hile rounding out the top ten.

" What a crazy night, lots of cautions tonight but the car was good on restarts" commented Wight after the race. " This is the same car we won at Fulton with and didn't make any changes to it. We unloaded the car today and didn't have to touch it all night."

Jordan Poirier was a busy man in the driver's seat for the A Main, "Yeah, we had a lot going on during the race. The car was ok early in the race but I made some adjustments about halfway through that worked. Regarding all the cautions, "Towards the end of the race I was worried about running out of gas, I was riding around the bottom and leaning out the fuel line just to make sure I had enough."

Paulie Colagiovanni rallied for a podium finish after missing the setup early in the night. " I will take it, I missed the setup early but made some good changes for the Dash run so, I thought we would be ok for the A Main. I was hoping the bottom would slick off a little, which it did, the high side worked well for us tonight"

Fast Times were set by Billy VanInwegen, Shawn Donath and Joe Trenca. Heat wins went to Tommy Wickham, Shawn Donath and Danny Varin. Paulie Colagiovanni won the Dash and ChrisHile won the B Main.

Shingledecker collects biggest payday in BRP modified tour history with $7K win! Bish (stocks); Morris (305s); Thompson (minis) double up; Cope wins 2nd in crate mods.

By Jim Balentine (Mercer,Pa)

Veteran Jeremiah Shingledecker scored the biggest win in his long storied career by capturing the $7000 to win BRP modified 25th anniversary showdown Saturday at Mercer over a 26 car field that paid $500 to start.

2022 big block mod Mercer champ Mike Kinney would look impressive at the start leading the first 5 laps until Shingledecker took over on lap 6. Ralph Quarterson memorial winner and fri night winner Garrett Krummert would take over on lap 8 and would look to double up on the weekend until he blew a tire on lap 14 giving Shingledecker the lead again.

Shingledecker would keep the lead for the remaining 35 laps but as the race progressed both Krummert and 2021 champ Eric Gabany were methodically moving up through the field . Gabany would start 23 and with 10 to go would be up to 8th. Krummert also passed cars and would be 7th with 10 to go.

On lap 40 a caution came out which would negate Shingledecker’s 3.5 second lead over Erick Rudolph. On the restart Rudolph would be right next to the 37md but both Krummert and Gabany were on a mission as Rudolph dropped to 3rd on lap 44 as Krummert got around and then Gabany would take over 3rd on lap 46 putting Rudolph back to 4th. From there it was a game of cat and mouse as Krummert closed the gap to less than a second but the 37md was too strong and would pull out to a 2.09 second lead and would take the crowd pleasing victory on the final lap. Krummert would finish 2nd with Gabany 3rd, Rudolph was 4th and Mike Kinney 5th. An excited Jeremiah would say “I need a beer!!! That’s more then double the biggest race we ever won I have to thank the Michaels family for putting this on and their track is 200 percent better than It was. When you have Rudolph and Krummert besides you you can only have so many restarts until they beat you but it’s part of the show. It feels good to get back here and picking up $7000 doesn’t hurt anyones feelings.”

Garrett Krummert set a new track record in Qualifying with a 16.029 breaking the long held mark by Kenny Brightbill in 2000.

Veteran Jimmy Morris made a clean sweep in the Racesaver 305 sprint feature after leading all 40 laps in 2 20 lap features this weekend. Vivian Jones came from 6th to pass Jake Gomola for 2nd on lap 14 but ran out of time chasing Morris losing by 1.41 seconds. “I’m ready to take a nap!! But I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but this place. Hats off to mercer for a pretty racey track considering a 50 lap feature and 2 more before ours. Little guy nationals is my favorite race at the end of the month and this is my first time winning back to back!” Track champ Jeremy Kornbau would get around Gomola for 3rd, and Timmy Bittner was 5th.

Curt Bish continues to dominate the local pro stock winning his 2nd pro stock feature of the weekend and his 6th in 13 starts this year. Bish led from lap 2 in the marathon event beating Pat Fielding by 3.45 seconds. Jim Fosnaught, Terry Young and S off Malone would round out the top 5. “My crew guys were here getting tires set up early and we changed a few things on the car .and I want to wish my dad a happy birthday to my dad as it’s his birthday today and I couldn’t ask for a better present to him.”

Youngster Preston Cope in the Jerry Schaffer owned #24 would hold off 3 time champ Brian Schaffer for the whole 20 laps to win his 2nd career FASTRAK/602 crate modified feature by 1.58 seconds. Logan McCandless would hop into Schaffer’s other #10 car to finish 3rd in his first modified start, Brandon Ritchey was 4th and Michael Kristyak 5th. “There was alot of pressure for this week since gabany won in this car last time”.. said Cope “Ive been running at Jennerstown on the asphalt this year and I’m proud of my guys helping with this accomplishment. Asphalt is so different where you have to be perfect where on dirt you can let it hang loose. I saw the blue 41 coming and I thought I was in for some heavy racing but Brian is a great racer and very clean and I’m appreciative of that I love clean racing”

Andy Thompson also picked up back to back wins this weekend in the mini stock division collecting $800 for his two wins. He would overtake Tim Callahan on lap 7 to go onto his 8th win of the season. Randy Ealy would finish 2nd, Tyler Beehler moved up 4 positions to get 3rd, Callahan fell to 4th and DJ MacRae went from 9th to 5th. “The high line is nice and moist and you get alot of traction up there. I like running high and Ive scraped the wall and mercer has scraped my car off the wall too!!”

Mercer will be off until the end of the month when the annual little guy nationals will take place

RYAN TURNER WINS SOS SEASON FINALE AT MERRITTVILLE; CORY TURNER CLAIMS 2022 CHAMPIONSHIP

By Tommy Goudge with files from Jonathon Howe

THOROLD, Ont. (September 10, 2022) – Ryan Turner claimed the A-Main win in the final Southern Ontario Sprints points race of the season Saturday night at Merrittville Speedway. Ryan’s brother Cory Turner took a fourth place finish on Saturday to clinch the 2022 Southern Ontario Sprints championship.

Kyle Phillips entered the event with a one point lead over Cory Turner in the championship standings, while several others still had title chances as well. Phillips added two points to his advantage by winning his heat race, and the two started side-by-side in row three for the A-Main.

Teammates Ryan Turner and Liam Martin started the 25 lap A-Main on the front row, and Martin took the lead and opened a big gap on the field. A yellow flag negated Martin’s advantage on lap six, however. Turner gave chase after the restart and began to close in again as the leaders negotiated traffic.

The traffic brought Martin back within striking distance and Turner made the winning move with six laps remaining. Mitch Brown subsequently got past Martin and began to run Turner down, but ran out of time. Ryan Turner took the win, followed by Mitch Brown, Liam Martin, Cory Turner, and Jim Huppunen. Jake Brown took sixth from row six, with Jamie Turner, Glenn Styres, Kyle Phillips, and Shone Evans rounding out the top ten. The championship was Cory Turner’s second Southern Ontario Sprints title; he claimed his first in 2018.

The SOS club wishes to thank everyone for their donations to Sprint Car driver Paul Pekkonen on Saturday night. A total of $1406.60 was raised to help defray Paul’s medical costs; he was seriously injured while working in his shop last week.

Wilmot Raceway

(Wilmot, Wis., Saturday, September 10, 2022)--Bonduel's Nick Anvelink took another step toward a fifth WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Championship by scoring his second win in the 5th Annual Jim "Wildman" Watson Classic 30-lap Feature Saturday, September 10 at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis.
Anvelink powered into the lead seven laps from the finish, overtaking Waukesha's Taylor Scheffler on the backstretch. Scheffler had taken the top spot from early race leader Joel Bennett of Hortonville following a restart after a caution four laps into the main.
The race was red flagged when Scheffler and New London's Justin Ritchie tangled while working lapped traffic battling for top three spots. Both cars made solid contact into the turn three wall, were uninjured, but unable to restart.
At the checkered it was Anvelink first. Random Lake's Brad Mueller second. Abrams' Ron Berna third. Shawano's Troy Springborn came from 14th starting spot to take fourth. Cleveland's Justin Schmidt took fifth after starting 12th in the 24-car field.
"I saw where Taylor was running and took my chance as we worked the traffic," said Anvelink. "The track was a little tricky and the traffic made it challenging. It's great to get a second win here at Wilmot. Hopefully Mother Nature will cooperate more next year so we can run here more than once.(Dirt Kings were rained out in May)."
In the only other division which was racing for championship points, Kansasville's Ryan Marshall won his third 20-lap AutoMeter/Brewington Electric Wisconsin WingLESS Sprints 20-lap Feature of the season at Wilmot. Marshall took the lead from New Berlin's Scott Uttech using the inside of the front straightaway on lap 6 after the two had gone wheel to wheel for several circuits. The race stayed green until it's only caution flew with 8 laps remaining. Marshall was up for the challenge going on for the win. Clayton Rossmann of Wadsworth, IL, who turned 17 the day before and won a feature at Sycamore Speedway, finished a strong second. Uttech, substitute driving for his daughter, Trinity, who is away at college, ended up third. Past champion Jimmy Sivia of Winthrop Harbor, IL in his final start at Wilmot after announcing his retirement took fourth. Racine's Derek Crane was fifth.
"It was fun racing hard against Scott(Uttech)," said Marshall, who picked up some of the extra money added to the purse by his car owner Eddy Boyd of MLS Auto Clinic. "I shot pst him once a slid up, then he did kind of the same thing, a payback, which is okay. It's good, hard, elbows up racing which is what these non-wing sprint cars produce. I thank my car owners, sponsors, and these great Wilmot fans for supporting the track so we can do what we like to do."
The WingLESS Sprints traveling series has two events remaining on Friday, September 23 at Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam and the season finale at Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, September 24.
Four-time and 2022 Wilmot Modified Champion Genoa City's Mike Simons capped off his year at his home track by winning a hard fought sixth 20-lap Modified feature of the season. Simons worked his way alongside South Milwaukee's Chris Carlson as the two went wheel to wheel after a restart following a caution three laps from the finish. At the checkered it was Simons, using the high line, for the win. Carlson ended up second after taking the lead with 12 laps to go from Tony Izzo of Capron, IL. Izzo overtook the lead following a lap three restart after a caution from Milwaukee's David Wirth. Eagle's Steve Mueller finished third after starting 12th in the 20-car field. Milwaukee's Don Scheffler started 14th ending up fourth. Waterford's Mike Wittenburg started 10th finishing fifth.
"I hope this crowd was entertained," said Simons, thanking his brother, Nick, who promoted the night's event, and Pratt's Chimney Service which added money to the purse. "I said Championship Night (September 3) I would be back, and here we are. It wasn't easy on the high side, but the car ran strong up there so I went for it. It was fun."
Pell Lake's Cody Potter made it three wins in four Wilmot starts this season in the 20-lap Street Stock feature. A yellow on lap two set up three different leaders in less than three laps. Scott Quarnstrom of Lake Villa, IL headed the 21-car field from the start with Edward Anschutz of Two Rivers taking the point on the restart. Potter and Anschutz battled side by side several laps including three additional yellow flag periods which slowed the pace. The final four laps went green with the two going side by side one final time coming for the white flag. At the checkered it was Potter by less than a car length for the win. Anschutz was second. Muskego's Courtney Atkinson third. Brandon Mertes of Antioch, IL fourth. Kenosha's Blake Kreuser came from 14th to finish fifth.
"Eddy is a good guy to run with," said Potter, thanking UNEEDA Iron & Sandblasting for adding sponsorship to the purse. "I know he runs clean, because I've race him before. We will see what 2023 holds if we come here more often."
South Milwaukee's Jay Orr put a book end on the Bandit 4-Cylinder Stock Car season at Wilmot by becoming the sixth different feature winner of the year in the 20-lap main. Ironically, his brother, Jake Balk, won the first feature for the division back in May. Orr took the lead from his second row starting spot, keeping it through cautions at lap 3 and 12 which kept erasing a strong advantage. The last eight laps stayed green with Orr maintaining top spot. Scott Ellis of Lake Villa, IL, who captured back to back Wilmot season crowns in 2021 and this season, 2022, finished second. Salem's Ryan Johnson was third. Slinger's Roman Blank fourth. Newton's James Riske fifth.
"The cautions didn't help, but I was able to find my groove and keep hitting it," said Orr, thanking GLP Automotive for sponsoring additional purse money. "I thank my sponsors, everyone who put this event together."
Off the track, the final night saw a record of over 150 youngsters from the grandstand go home with new bikes thanks to the generosity of many drivers, crew members, fans and track.
staff.
Wilmot Raceway will be undergoing a major facelift beginning this upcoming week of September 12. The entire grandstand and scoring tower will be taken down, with all new seating and a scoring building erected prior to the 2023 season opener thanks to the efforts of the Kenosha County Fair Association.
The 2023 schedule will eventually be announced on the Raceway's website at wilmotraceway.com or by checking the official Wilmot Raceway Facebook page.
Congratulations to Wilmot Raceway's 2022 season champions Jordan Goldesberry of Springfield, IL in the 410 Outlaw Winged Sprints, Tim Cox of Park City, IL in the AutoMeter/Brewington Electric WingLESS Sprints, Scott Ellis of Lake Villa, IL in Bandit 4-Cylinder Stock Cars, Mike Simons of Genoa City in Gerber Collision & Glass Modifieds, Cody Erickson of Algonquin, IL in Wilmot Mountain Street Stocks and Mike Neau of Pleasant Prairie in Pfeiffer Trailer Sales IRA Lightning Sprints.

Wilson gets late race 410 Fremont win, Macedo claims AFCS title; Weaver earns 305 win and AFCS title; Babcock and Valenti split truck wins

Saturday, Sept. 10, 2022

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – There’s an old saying “there’s nothing like home cooking.” That applied Saturday, Sept. 20 to the Seeling Motorsports team and driver Greg Wilson at Fremont Speedway. When a race team struggles tensions in the shop and track can run high but a win can fix a lot of those feelings and that’s exactly what the Benton Ridge, Ohio driver did, taking the lead with just nine laps to go and driving to his third 410 sprint win of the season at “The Track That Action Built.”

Wilson’s win was the 16th of his career at Fremont Speedway and came on Iron Works Local 55/Terra State Community College Night.

“We were good….I think we still have some stuff to work on but the race track was awesome tonight. It’s been a tough week at the 97 shop. We’ve been struggling and everybody gets a little irritated…we want to win. We come home to Fremont and you get a win like this…means so much. I want to thank the fans for making Fremont Speedway what it is. I say that every time I get lucky enough to be up here. Fremont is a racing town….always has been and when you are here you feel like you are some place special. Also, Joe and Diane (Seeling) are pretty attached to their dogs and they lost one week and it’s a part of the family so it’s been pretty sad around there. Hopefully this makes them smile a little bit,” said Wilson who also talked about a former crew member who lost his brother this week.

“We really weren’t planning on racing…I was supposed to be in Charlotte (N.C) to do a deal for Hercules Tire but a hurricane came through and wiped that out. I came into tonight pissed off at the world to prove a point so maybe I could teach my daughter something about intensity. My kids didn’t get to see me in the prime of my career so hopefully they can see me win some more races. Hopefully we have a little something for the Ford Classic later,” added Wilson beside his DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics, Sugar Street Bar and Grill, Hercules Tires backed #97.

Lemmore, California’s Cole Macedo wrapped up the 2022 All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group title.

“It’s awesome….I’m so happy for this team. They pour their hearts and souls into this deal and do it out of the kindness of their hearts. We came out this year to win all three championships but I had commitments to go to Knoxville and that hurt that but I’m glad we got the other two done. Thanks to Ray Brooks for taking a chance on us and let us have fun and hopefully we’re making him proud,” said Macedo.

After suffering through a bout of Covid last week, Fremont’s Paul Weaver stormed back with a vengeance Saturday, taking the lead from Matt Foos with four laps to go and driving to his fourth 305 sprint win of the season at Fremont. The three time Fremont 305 track champion scored his 68th career win at the track- placing him third on the all-time career win list – and also wrapped up his third straight NAPA of Bryan Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales title.

“On that restart (with five laps to go) Matt went to the bottom and I found some moisture in the middle and was able to move around him. I want to thank Duane Hancock for all the extra money he got out throughout the year through the AFCS…it really helps keep us racing. Also thanks to Bob Hampshire and Steve and Pam Brown of B&B Drain Service…I would have probably retired if it wasn’t for their help,” said Weaver, a three time Fremont 305 track champion.

The Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks had two features to run – the night’s regular event and a make-up feature from Aug. 13 that was rained out.

In the make-up feature Fostoria, Ohio’s Shawn Valenti held off numerous challenges from Jamie Miller to score his fourth truck win of the season and 73rd career victory at the track, moving him to just three away from tying hall of famer Art Ball atop the all-time win list.

“Hats off to my crew and owner Jeffrey Babcock. They had a lot of work to do on the engine this week and we had some issues at the track as well but we were able to overcome them,” said Valenti beside his A Plus Auto Center, Craig Miller Trucking, Best Performance Motorsports, Dave Story Equipment, KS Sales & Service, S&S Hauling and Excavation #7B.

The night’s truck feature was a barn-burner that saw only one caution in the 20-lap affair and featured Jeff Babcock and Ben Clapp swapping the lead several times over the last 15 laps. Babcock was able to hold on for his third win of the season and fourth of his career at the track.

“This America 25 was pretty good in the slick. Ben was there and under that caution I could see my crew waving me to go to the bottom because he was definitely there. It was a lot of fun and good hard clean racing,” said Babcock of his Roelle Racing #25.

In the 30-lap, $5,000 to win Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint feature, Zeth Sabo grabbed the early lead over Wilson, Macedo, Travis Philo and Stuart Brubaker. Sabo built a sizeable lead before hitting lapped traffic by lap eight but Wilson could not close.

Heavy lapped traffic with 10 laps to go allowed Wilson, who had just pulled his top wing back, to close quickly. Wilson drove under Sabo on lap 22 and was able to negotiate through heavy lapped traffic to score the win in the non-stop affair over Sabo, Philo, Macedo and Craig Mintz.

After a couple of cautions to start the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature, Matt Foos jumped into the lead over Dustin Stroup, Steve Rando, Jamie Miller and Weaver. Foos quickly found the back of the field by lap 10 and Weaver used lapped traffic to take second from Stroup a lap later.

Foos maintained a five car length advantage as the laps ticked off but a caution with five laps to go gave Weaver his chance. On the restart Weaver raced to Foos’ outside and took the lead on lap 22 and pulled away for the win over Foos, Stroup, Alvin Roepke from 14th and Tyler Shullick.

In the 20 lap dirt truck regular feature, Kevin Phillips grabbed the early lead while Babcock, Clapp, Jim Holcomb and RJ Cornett gave chase. Phillips, Clapp and Babcock battled hard with Babcock taking the lead on lap four. After battling side by side for a couple of laps, Clapp was able to take the top spot from Babcock on lap six. The lead duo continued to race door to door over the next hand full of laps before Babcock was able to regain the lead on lap 10

Babcock and Clapp continued their side by side battle until the first caution flew on lap 14. By then the night’s make-up feature winner Shawn Valenti had climbed to third. When the race resumed Babcock was fighting off Clapp, Valenti and Cornett with Jamie Miller charging from 16th to fifth.

A final caution set up a one lap dash to the finish with Babcock holding off Clapp, Miller, Valenti and Cornett for the victory.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, Sept. 17 with the 410 sprints, trucks and steel block pate model series in action.

Foos gets 1st Attica win of the year, Macedo claims track title; Schlenk earns 4th late model win, Shiels is champion; Martin out of retirement for 305 win; Weaver claims title

Friday, Sept. 9, 2022

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – It took until the final race of the 2022 season at Attica Raceway Park, but DJ Foos finally found victory lane, leading all 30 laps of the 410 sprint feature and withstanding a one lap sprint to the checkers after a caution, Foos scored the $4,000 payday on Kistler Racing Products/Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome Plating presents the Mark Keegan Classic Season Championship Night.

While Foos, Attica’s 2019 champion, was celebrating the long awaited victory, Lemoore, California’s Cole Macedo wrapped up the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints track title. Heading into the championship night for the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group, all Macedo has to do is take a green in hot laps to wrap up that title with a legitimate shot at scoring the Fremont Speedway title as well.

For Foos the victory aboard the Burmeister Racing #16 was his fifth career victory at Attica.

“When you start on the front row of these things…this is our third time…and I was like man I keep getting beat and I don’t know what we can change to get better. Doug Berryman has been working on our shock package and Mikey’s been doing a really good job with the car. We’ve kind of found speed in qualifying and that feature was pretty much qualifying all 30 laps. I kind of got complacent there on that last run when we caught lapped traffic and I seen Cole poke his nose in there and I pulled the wing back a little bit and got better and then there was a yellow coming through three and four and I thought I was going to give it away. I felt I got through one and two pretty good on the restart,” said Foos.

“I can’t say enough for my guys and all the people who makes this possible. Ray Brooks racing has really raised the bar this year and we’re all just trying to play catch-up. We destroyed a car last weekend and got this car out and Brandon Riehl fixed it for us and he did a heck of a job for us. I have to thank my wife Bethany….those quiet rides home aren’t that fun and she does a good job of keeping the conversation going,” added Foos beside his Pub 400, Jet Express, Burmeister Trophy, CR Juices, Crown Battery, All In Tent Rental, KS Sales & Service, Vantage Branding backed machine.

For Macedo and the Ray Brooks Racing #18, the Attica Title was one of their main goals coming into the season.

“It’s been a very stressful year racing for points. I’m going to be honest….I’m not a big fan of racing for points. I feel like we race a little bit different and don’t always go for the win. But in that race I hung it out there as hard as I could. I came into tonight trying not to think about the points and keep doing what we’ve been doing and obviously it’s been working. Super happy to get this done for Ray and Mike and Steven and all of our crew guys who bust their tails to prevent part failures and kind of putting it all in my corner and because of them it makes my job easier,” said Macedo.

“I’m super excited to see a new car owner come into this sport and see the success that he’s had…that’s what keeps this sport going,” added Macedo while thanking sponsors Fremont Auto Parts/Napa, Gill Construction, CK Mechanical, Grant Decker Construction, ML Graphics, Durst, Valvoline Oil, Linder’s Speed Equipment and Catawba Island Club.

McClure, Ohio’s Rusty Schlenk loves a big curb and Attica provided that Friday and the three time national UMP late model champion used it to dominate the Dirt Nerds Podcast/Propane.com UMP Late Model feature leading all 25 laps that saw only one caution flag. The victory was the fourth of the season at Attica for Schlenk who now owns 35 career late model wins at the track to lead all drivers.

“I love this place and I love a big cushion. The lapped cars all pretty much stayed on the bottom and that was all I needed. I had a couple of mistakes off the back side of the track but pretty much this thing was a rocket ship,” said Schlenk beside his Velicita Fire Suits, VP Fuels, Dominator Race Products, Bilstein Shocks, Lendrum Springs, Tom Finch Auto backed #91.

Coming into the final race, Britton, Michigan’s Devin Shiels had not finished out of the top five all season. All he had to do was qualify and he would lock up the track’s 2022 late model championship. However, while warming up Shiels car had a motor issue and he had to scratch for the night. Luckily the track’s point system allows for one dropped event and Shiels was able to score his fourth track title and his third in a row.

“ The motor seemed fine when we fired up before coming here but when we started it I felt a vibration and that was it. We were consistent all year and that allowed us to have this night. It’s a shame…I really wanted to end the year with that never finishing out of the top five deal but we’ll take another championship and come back and defend next season,” said Shiels beside his Magic Fountain Auto Wash, Rally’s Hamburgers, Dundee Products, Banshee Graphics, Salenbein Trucking & Excavating backed #51.

You couldn’t script a more perfect scenario for the Fremont Fence 305 Sprint feature. A driver who lives near Attica Raceway Park who hasn’t sat in a sprint car since 2017 nor a 305 sprint in 20 years, comes out on the track’s last race of the season and takes a win. That’s exactly what Brandon Martin did Friday driving a second team car for Ryan French Racing and to have his wife and children there to witness it. It was his first career 305 sprint win to go with three 410 victories in his career at Attica.

“Thank the good lord above. I didn’t know if I’d ever get to do this again. It’s tough to do this. It’s a privilege to drive these,” said an emotional Martin. “I’ve raced all over the place but I’ve had the longest ride home from this place over the years that I’ve raced. It’s just great to be here…this is home. I never said I was retired…I haven’t raced since 17 and I haven’t raced a 305 in 20 years. It’s been awhile. I still have a race car and a motor…I just don’t have any money to go do it. This is just great to have everyone here just talking to me and all my family here.”

Fremont’s Paul Weaver, who has more career wins at Attica than any other driver in any division combined, never finished out of the top six all season and it propelled him to his sixth 305 track championship. Just as important, Weaver could wrap up his third consecutive NAPA of Bryan Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales title at Fremont Saturday.

“Starting up front definitely helps. This is a really maneuverable track and you can find your way around traffic. Biggest thing is just to finish all the races. If you can finish consistently in the top six you’ve had a really good year. I have to thank Steve and Pam Brown of B&B Drain, Bob Hampshire for a hell of a motor…no engine problems all year and my wife for maintaining the car this week while I was sick…it was her set-up on it,” said Weaver.

After the first attempt to start the 30-lap 410 sprint feature was slowed by debris, Foos grabbed the lead with Emerson Axsom, Chris Andrews, Macedo, Stuart Brubaker, Tim Shaffer and Travis Philo in tow. Foos opened a sizeable advantage until entering slower traffic on lap eight, allowing Axsom, Andrews, and Cole Macedo to close. As the battle for the lead started to heat up the caution flag appeared when Andrews slowed after packing his right rear wheel with mud.

Foos pulled away on the restart as Macedo started to pressure Axsom for second. Travis Philo briefly went from fourth to second with a slide job in turn four, only to lose momentum and drop back to fourth coming down the front stretch.

Macedo pressured Axsom for the second position on lap 23 and was able to make the pass a lap later. Macedo quickly closed in and tried a slide job on Foos with two laps to go but was unable to make the pass. Just after the leaders took the white flag the final caution in the feature appeared when Zach Ames slid off the track in turn four.

This setup a one lap dash to the finish. Macedo tried the slider on the restart, but Foos used the momentum on the cushion to drive to the victory. Philo was able to get by Macedo for second on the final corner with Macedo holding onto third. Axsom and Tim Shaffer rounded out the top five.

Schlenk grabbed the lead at the drop of the green for the $2,000 to win late model feature with Todd Brennan, Ryan Markham, Justin Chance and Collin Shipley giving chase. Chance moved into second on lap three with Shipley taking third two laps later.

The only caution flew for Troy Hahn on lap seven but that didn’t slow Schlenk who drove off when the green flew. However, the action behind him was fantastic as Markham drove into second on lap 14 with Chance, Shipley, BJ Gregory, Matt Irey and Ryan Missler giving chase. After a long battle, Shipley moved into third on lap 22 but no one had anything for Schlenk as he blasted the cushion for the win with Markham, Shipley, Chance and Missler rounding out the top five.

Kelsey Ivy led the first two laps of the 305 sprint feature before Martin took over on lap three. Steve Rando got caught up in a spin involving two other cars and took a wild ride on lap seven but escaped injury. On the restart Martin led while Ivy, Kody Brewer, Jamie Miller, Brandon Moore, Kasey Jedrzejek and Weaver gave chase.

Miller drove from fourth to second on lap nine but his top wing collapsed ending his night. On the restart Martin drove away as Ivy battled with Brewer and Jedrzejek for second with the later taking the runner-up spot on lap 13. While Martin consistently hit his marks to stay on point, Jedrzejek and Brewer battled hard for second.

Martin entered lapped traffic with just five laps to go and held a sizeable lead over Brewer, Jedrzejek, Moore and Ivy. Martin took the checkers over Brewer, Jedrzejek and Moore with Weaver getting by Ivy on the last lap to round out the top five.

Prior to the night’s racing Attica’s director of operations Rex LeJeune was honored by track personnel, race teams and many family and friend for his 40 years of service – the last 17 as the helm of Attica – to racing as he is now retired from the sport after making a huge impact.

Late Move Nets Bard Second Straight Win

For the second race in a row, Garrett Bard stalked a would-be first-time winner and made a late-race pass to capture the feature. This time it was at Port Royal Speedway Thursday night, where the River Valley Builders PA Sprint Series was racing alongside Tony Stewart’s Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions in the first night of the Tuscarora 50 weekend.

The Wells Tannery driver put his eighth-starting CG Racing Engines/Barnett Self Storage/Environmental Earth Tech #95 into contention at the mid-way point in the 20-lap feature, moving into second place shortly after early leader Drew Young of Beaver Springs dropped out of the race, handing the lead of Zach Rhodes of McVeytown.

Five laps later, Bard made the winning move, denying Rhodes, driving the Weaver racing #31, his first PASS win in his second season of competition.

The win was Bard’s 11th of the season in PASS competition, moving him within one victory of Logan Wagner’s single-season record of 12, set in 2013. It was the 32nd of his four-year PASS career, already a series record.

Rhodes held on for the runner-up finish, his third 2nd-place of the year. He has been driving the Weaver #31 since his own #0Z car was parked with mechanical issues.

Mike Melair of Warrington battled in the top five for the entire race and ended up third, with Ken Duke Jr. of Selinsgrove coming from 11th starting spot to finish fourth, and Jeff Weaver of Lock Haven, another race-long top five battler, fifth.

Justin Mills, Scott Frack, Jimmy White, Tyler Snook, and Josh Spicer completed the top 10.

Contests for position occurred throughout the race throughout the field, with numerous drivers improving their starting positions impressively. Two drivers from the B-Mains, Kenny Heffner and Doug Dodson, each moved up nine positions, with Heffner, who had started 21st and finished 12th, earning the Penns Valley Meat Market Hard Charger Award. Bard and back-row starter Todd Lynn each moved up eight positions, and Duke and Josh Bricker advanced seven spots.

Penns Valley Meat Market also sponsors the PASS races at Port Royal.

The race’s only caution came on the second lap when Chad Phillips flipped in turn three. He was uninjured.

The night’s most serious incident came on the start of the second B-Main, when Stevie Kenawell went three-wide on the front stretch and made contact with Fred Arnold, who in turn collided with Mike Alleman. Kenawell and Alleman took wicked multiple flips, but both drivers exited their cars under their own power. All three teams were done for the night, though.

In an ultra-competitive field of 46 IMCA/RaceSaver print cars, Bard, Rhodes, Mills, and Frack won the heat races, and Heffner and Phillips took the B-Main checkers.

The River Valley Builders PASS tour has one of the season’s biggest weekends coming up next week.

On Thursday, September 15, PASS will make its only 2022 appearance at BAPS Motor Speedway (with 410 sprints also on the program), and then on Saturday, September 17, the new Race to Hunting Season will be run at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The Race to Hunting Season event, with sponsorship from the Pennsylvania Game Commission, will more than double the normal PASS race purse and offer a number of other distinctions.

Super late models, limited late models and roadrunner stocks also will race.

Krummert takes BRP modified 25th anniversary night 1 at Michaels mercer raceway.; Bish wins in stocks; Morris (305s) and Thompson(minis) repeat.
By Jim Balentine
(Mercer,Pa)

On a beautiful mid September evening Michaels Mercer Raceway celebrated the first night of the BRP modified 25th anniversary showdown 2 day show with Garrett Krummert picking up his 2nd higher paying BRP modified race of the year at Mercer defeating Erick Rudolph and Mike Kinney. Jimmy Morris picked up his 2nd Racesaver 305 sprint feature of the year; Curt Bish won the pro stock invitational and track champ Andy Thompson won his 7th mini stock feature of the year.

Jimmy Morris would take off from his outside pole position and was not seriously challenged until the end when Vivian Jones would close the gap but Morris held on by .451 to win his 2nd Racesaver 305 sprint feature and his historic 15th career in the class at Mercer . “I could hear a motor back there and the car got freeer and I knew someone was coming and when I saw the white flag I knew I had to take it easy as the car was getting loose. I’m blessed to still be doing this. Wow 15 wins!!! It’s a team effort with my family and crew I can’t thank everyone enough. Track is racey and I appreciate the hard work from the team so we can race here!!” Jones would be 2nd, Jake Gomola was 3rd, Greg Dobrosky 4th and Andy Priest 5th.

The pro stocks returned for the first time this season with Curt Bish picking up his 13th career Mercer feature. 7 time winner veteran Gary Miller would lead from the pole and would make the car 90 feet wide and Bish would hound him all over the race track. On lap 8 Bish would get around Miller and would continue to lead. However veteran Chris Schneider would reel him in lap after lap as on lap 10 he was a full 2 seconds behind but would close the gap and would finish just .686 at the end behind Bish. Raceway 7 and Eriez track champ Chris Withers would finish 3rd, Coleton Longwell 4th and Miller fell back to 5th. Bish would say, “I’m glad there wasnt more than 20 laps tonight, it helped me out tonight with my tire choice. Gary made that car wide he’s a good driver and anytime you can beat Schneider it’s a good night. We’ve had a good year we’ve won 5 out of 10 starts and I couldn’t do it without my crew and sponsors.”

Andy Thompson held off Josh Eakman by 4 seconds to wrap up his 2nd mini stock track championship in a row and his 7th win of the season. The battle would be for 2nd as Eakman would get around Corey Bice who was 2nd since lap 4 at the checkered by just .166 at the line. Randy Ealy would come home 3rd after going to the tail with rear ended damage to finish 2nd in points over Trevn Schaffer who finished 5th. Andy said ,”I didn’t know how big of a lead I had but I love racing here the track was beautiful tonight you didn’t have to lift at all!!”

Shane Golobic races to 11th career SCCT win to open Gold Cup 68

By Gary Thomas

Chico, CA…Fremont’s Shane Golobic has been as hot as any driver in California the last few weeks and added another victory on Wednesday night, by picking up the Sprint Car Challenge Tour sanctioned “Pacific Sprint Cup” at Silver Dollar Speedway.

Sharing victory lane with Golobic on Wednesday was San Jose throttle masher Shawn Jones, who earned his first Joe Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour triumph of the season.

The 30-lap SCCT feature began with 15-year-old Chance Grasty jumping into the lead. The Suisun City youngster held a steady lead out front as the action was hot and heavy behind him. Elk Grove’s Kyle Larson had spun out on the original attempt and many eyes were turned his way, with the 2-time Gold Cup champ blasting his way through the field. Grasty led the first laps of his career with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour but when traffic came into play it gave Max Mittry and Golobic a chance to close.

On lap 13 Mittry carved his way past Grasty and brought Golobic along for second. The racing continued to keep fans on the edge of their seats with side-by-side action all through the field. Larson ended up cracking into the top-five on lap 20 as he found the high side to his liking. Golobic was also able to make his way by Mittry with 21 laps complete to snag the lead that he would never relinquish. The driver of the Matt Wood Racing/ NOS Energy Drink No. 17w accepted the checkered flag for his 11th career Sprint Car Challenge Tour win.

Larson continued his charge as the laps wound down and got past Mittry just before the finish to end up second. Mittry crossed the stripe in third to earn his first ever SCCT podium. Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick and Grasty rounded out the top-five. Completing the top-10 were Joel Myers Jr., Landon Brooks, Michael Faccinto, Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Tim Kaeding and Sean Becker.

Kyle Larson began the evening by earning the Bianchi Farms Fast Time Award by touring the bullring in 12.272 seconds. He went home with $800 total courtesy extra money from Joey and Joelle Carr.

POIRIER TAKES KNIGHTS OF THUNDER VICTORY ON SECOND NIGHT OF BRIGHTON’S LABOUR DAY CLASSIC

By Tommy Goudge

BRIGHTON, Ont. (September 4, 2022) – Jordan Poirier rode into town on Sunday and pillaged the Pinty’s Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car series event at Brighton Speedway.

Poirier drew the pole for the 25 lap A-Main with Cory Turner on the outside of the front row. Poirier, the 2021 Knights of Thunder champion, did not compete the previous night at Brighton as he is chasing the Empire Super Sprints title in 2022. The initial start was called back and Turner was put back one row when officials determined that he jumped the start. D.J. Christie assumed the outside front row starting position next to Poirier, but Turner wasted little time moving ahead and challenging Poirier for the lead.

Turner used the outside groove to drive past Poirier, only to see the move negated by a yellow flag on lap three for a Kevin Pauls spin. Poirier didn’t let his chance go to waste and drove away from the field after the restart, eventually winning by more than three seconds. The rest of the race was not without its challenges though, as traffic came into play and the track began to take rubber; drivers were forced to take care of their tires on the increasingly abrasive surface.

Cory Turner settled for the runner-up spot, followed by his brother Ryan, Liam Martin, and Mitch Brown. The top five finish for Brown was a successful salvage job for the championship contender after a hard crash in hot laps; his crew worked quickly and received help from others in the pit area to get his car repaired and ready for his heat race.

The Knights of Thunder series will next be in competition at the 18th Running of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals on Friday, September 16 and Saturday, September 17 at Ohsweken Speedway. Visit www.knightsofthunder.com for more information.

CURRAN WINS SECOND NIGHT OF BRIGHTON’S LABOUR DAY CLASSIC, FIRST ACTION SPRINT TOUR VICTORY

By Tommy Goudge

BRIGHTON, Ont. (September 3, 2022) – Dale Curran was almost letter-perfect on Sunday night at Brighton Speedway, taking his first career Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s win during the second night of the Labour Day Classic weekend.

Curran drew the pole position for the 25 lap A-Main with Allan Downey to his outside. Curran fended off a lap one challenge from Downey and subsequently one from Mathieu Bardier. Curran later made contact with the front stretch wall, but otherwise ran the outside groove to perfection and successfully negotiated traffic.

The race went green-to-checkered without a stoppage in under six and a half minutes, and Jacob Dykstra ran out of time in his bid to catch Curran after starting in row four. Curran’s margin of victory was just over two seconds, with Dykstra settling for the runner-up spot. Bardier, Downey, and Austin Roes rounded out the top five.

The Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s will next be in competition at the Trailer Pros Canada Sprint Race Weekend at Brockville Ontario Speedway on Friday, September 9 and Saturday, September 10. Visit www.actionsprinttour.com for more information.

Late Move Nets Path Valley Victory, 10th Of Season for Garrett Bard


Garrett Bard ruined Paul Moyer’s bid for a first River Valley Builders PA Sprint Series victory with a bold inside pass on the next-to-last lap and scored his 10th PASS win of the 2022 season in the 25-lap feature at Path Valley Speedway Saturday night.

Bard, who had started sixth, gradually moved his CG Racing Engines/Barnett’s Self Storage/Environmental Earth Tech/BDR Race Products #95 up in the standings, taking second from Jeff Weaver of Lock Haven with six laps to go. Then, with two laps to go, the Wells Tannery driver slid under Moyer in turn four and emerged with the lead.

At the checkered flag, his lead was 0.903 seconds. In victory lane, Bard expressed regret that Moyer, who has had several strong runs recently, had not been able to score his first win, but, “I’m not out there to run second.”

Moyer, the second-year PASS racer from Beaver Springs, held onto the runner-up spot, netting his best finish in 35 starts in his Hartley’s Potato Chips/Moyer’s Home Improvements/Weatherproof Roofing #1M.

Weaver finished third, ahead of rookie Timmy Bittner of Beech Creek and veteran Brad Mellott of Needmore.

Completing the top 10 were Alyssa Rowe, Kruz Kepner, Zach Rhodes, Owen Dimm, and Seth Schnoke.

Heat races for the 20 RaceSaver sprinters on hand were won by Brad Mellott and Owen Dimm.

It was a good night for younger drivers, with rookies Bittner, Dimm, and Schnoke grabbing top 10 finishes, as well as Rowe, who has only nine PASS starts over two seasons.

Rhodes, driving Roger Weaver’s #31, was the night’s hard charger, moving up seven positions; Bard gained six spots in winning. A special $50 hard charger award was posted by Dr. Zach Crouse. Rhodes also won a $100 contingency award for the poorest pill draw before the races – he had started his heat in 10th. That award was posted by Blue Ridge Home Healthcare.

The race was slowed by only two cautions, the first on lap 11 when Frank Rusnock spun in the fourth turn, and the second on lap 12 when Rusnock hit the backstretch wall in an incident possibly connected to the earlier spin. That earned the Wapwallopen driver the $50 hard luck award posted by the McGee family.

The night’s racing was a memorial to Roy and Margaret McGee, founders of the track 35 years ago. Mikell McGee of Doylesburg continues the family’s involvement and raced in the PASS feature Saturday.

The victory Saturday was Garrett Bard’s third of the year at Path Valley, and it sewed up the track championship for IMCA/RaceSavers as well. It was the 31st of his career in PASS, the alltime best for the series.

He is now two wins short of matching Logan Wagner’s 2013 mark of 12 victories in a season, another all-time record.

This week’s schedule is an unusual one for the River Valley Builders PASS tour, with an open weekend but a race on Thursday night at Port Royal Speedway, the first night of the three-night Tuscarora 50 weekend. The All-Star Circuit of Champions will headline the program, with the PASS sprinters running qualifying events before a 20-lap feature.

The following weekend will feature Thursday night racing at BAPS Motor Speedway, followed by the inaugural Race To Hunting Season program Saturday, September 17, at Selinsgrove Speedway. That race will be one of the series’ biggest of 2022.

Tanner Carrick and Shane Hopkins claim wins at Nor*Cal Posse Shootout presented by High Sierra Industries finale

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick and Placerville’s Shane Hopkins raced to victories in their respective classes during the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout finale on Sunday at the Placerville Speedway.

The last local show of the season in Old Hangtown provided entertaining racing all night long as the double header “shootout” weekend wrapped up. For Carrick it marked his sixth career Winged 360 Sprint Car victory at the track, tying him with Bryan Bullard, Mike Henry and Mason Moore on the all-time list. Hopkins earned his first with the Hunt Tour at the track, doing so by way of a clean sweep during the night.

Carrick started from the pole and battled with Aromas’ Justin Sanders for the lead on the opening lap. Oakley youngster Dylan Bloomfield immediately made his presence known by slicing to the inside of Sanders to fight for second. Excellent racing was seen all throughout the field as the surface had slicked off nicely. A long green flag run was had to begin things and with lapped traffic coming into play it gave Sanders a chance to close the gap.

Carving their way through the slower cars Carrick and Sanders put on a show navigating around the quarter mile bullring. At one point the top-five cars began to bunch up as Roseville’s Sean Becker entered the picture. “The Shark” made his way by Bloomfield to snag third before closing on the front duo. Lapped traffic continued to be heavy and as the laps wound down it was anybody’s race between the top-three cars.

Carrick drove an absolutely flawless race however and crossed under the Ron Stahl checkered flag for the $5,000 triumph.

Sanders completed a phenomenal Winged 360 season at Placerville Speedway by finishing runner up at the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout. The driver of the Dale Miller Septic No. 4sa captured five wins overall at the track. Becker put together a stout night to come home third after hounding the top-two during the waning stages. Saturday night winner Shane Golobic and the always hard charging Colby Copeland rounded out the top-five.

The remainder of the top-10 was filled out by Bloomfield, Kyle Hirst, Michael Faccinto, Tony Gomes and Gauge Garcia. A total of 34 cars competed at the final Winged 360 Sprint Car race of the season at Placerville. Justin Sanders earned his fourth fast time award of the year to open the evening and took home $200 thanks to ADCO Driveline and Sierra Foothills Wine Service.

The Joe Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour celebrated the 75th anniversary of Joe Hunt Magnetos on Sunday night. The overall event was dominated by Placerville’s own Shane Hopkins, who set fast time, won his heat race, claimed the Kiwi Pole Shuffle and the 25-lap feature event. Saturday night winner Jake Morgan closed the gap a few times late in the going, but Hopkins hit his marks lap after lap and accepted the Ron Stahl checkered flag for victory aboard the familiar Brian Sperry/ C&H Veteran Ent. No. 51 machine.

Despite Hopkins having his way out front the action behind him remained intense as various drivers attempted to knock down the thick cushion that had developed. Morgan had to settle for second at the finish to cap off a strong weekend of racing. Daniel Whitley was fun to watch in the main event and came home third, followed by the high side hustler Shawn Jones in fourth and Gilroy’s Jarrett Soares in fifth. Nick Larson, Josh Young, Dylan Newberry, Shawn Arriaga and Nick Robfogel rounded out the top-10.

Joe B Miller Masterful in Lake Ozark Speedway POWRi 410 Outlaw Weekend Finale
Belleville, IL. (9/4/22) Joe B Miller would use a late-race resurgence in the Lucas Oil POWRi 410 Wing Outlaw Sprint League feature event for Night Two of Lake Ozark Speedway’s Fall Sprint and Midget Nationals to notch their first career series feature victory.

Cruising onto the track with twenty-four entries, Ayrton Gennetten would clock quick qualifying time with an 11.707-second lap time as heat racing action would witness Garet Williamson, Kyle Bellm, and Brandon Hanks each earn an early competitional victory.

Going into the initial green flag start would find high point qualifier and pole-sitter Roger Crockett battle outside front-row companion Ayrton Gennetten into the first pair of corners as Crockett would gain the early racing advantage.

Appearing to be the fastest driver on the circuit, Roger Crockett would lead the first handful of laps until suffering mechanical issues taking him from the competition with second-place contender Ayrton Gennetten inheriting the lead.

Using a late-race restart to his advantage, Joe B Miller would surge back through the field after a rough initial start to overtake for the lead around lap twenty-two. Holding the front of the field on the final restart, Miller would flex his racing might to claim the feature win.

“I thought I gave this race away on the original start but I just kept plugging away through the restarts and green flag. I knew we had something late and I can’t thank this McGary team enough for letting me race for them,” said an elated Joe B Miller in the Lake Ozark Speedway winner’s circle.

Running smooth and gaining ground late would find see Garet Williamson place runner-up as Kyle Bellm placed in the final podium placement. Riley Kreisel would use late-race momentum to finish fourth in a battle as night-one winner Kameron Key rounded out the top-five finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi 410-Wing Outlaw Sprint League in Night Two of the Lake Ozark Speedway Fall Sprint and Midget Nationals.

Daison Pursley Victorious at Lake Ozark Speedway with POWRi National & West Midgets

Belleville, IL. (9/4/22) Daison Pursley would put an emphatic statement on his comeback story at Lake Ozark Speedway’s Fall Sprint & Midget Nationals on Night Two to capture his seventh career victory with the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget Leagues to wrap up a weekend holiday celebration of speed at The Lake.

Early Lake Ozark Speedway competition with the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League would see Gavan Boschele start the fastest with a 13.957-second hot-lap with Gavan Boschele and Shannon McQueen each earning heat racing wins as Chase McDermand would snag the night’s high-point award.

Setting the field of competitors would find pole-starter Chase McDermand battling front-row counterpart Gavan Boschele into the first pair of corners on the opening lap with Chase McDermand gaining the early racing advantage on the opening laps.

Holding the front of the field for the first few laps, McDermand would appear to be the fastest performer until a turn three mishap would take McDermand and the second-running Gavan Boschele from the competition.

Inheriting the lead, Brenham Crouch would hold the top spot until cutting a tire forcing him into the work area as runner-up Daison Pursley would inherit the lead after the restart.

Putting an exclamation point on the comeback story, Daison Pursley would not be denied in the twenty-five lap event with the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League to earn the feature victory.

“Nine months ago, I didn’t think I would ever race again, for this to be possible I can’t thank this team enough. Not only for keeping a ride open for me but all their help and support. This truly felt like a lifetime coming back but it means so much to me” stated an emotional and celebratory Daison Pursley in the Eldon Missouri Winner’s Ceremony.

Staying close in the entire feature, Taylor Reimer would secure a solid showing of runner-up with Brenham Crouch racing back into completing the feature's final podium placement.

Dobmeier, Yeigh and Henderson Produce Wins During The Bull Haulers Brawl Presented by Folkens Bros. Trucking as Tatnell and Olivier Capture Championships at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 4, 2022) - Mark Dobmeier, Cory Yeigh and Justin Henderson were victorious on Sunday evening during the Huset's Speedway season finale.

Dobmeier seized the $7,500-to-win Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association and Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig main event triumph while Yeigh scored the Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks victory and Henderson garnered the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and Midwest Power Series A Main win during The Bull Haulers Brawl presented by Folkens Bros. Trucking.

Additionally, Brooke Tatnell (Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig) and Zach Olivier (Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks) were crowned Huset's Speedway track champions.

The Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association and Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig 30-lap feature event was a fierce one as Austin McCarl led for the first 23 laps through moments of thick traffic and close calls on the cushion.

As McCarl was in traffic on Lap 24, runner-up Aaron Reutzel made a slide job attempt in turns three and four. Heading into turn three while running three wide, Reutzel slid in front of a lapped car before his right rear tire made contact with McCarl's left rear tire in turn four. The impact spun McCarl around to bring out the caution and it flattened Reutzel's left rear tire, forcing him to the pit area for a new tire.

Dobmeier, who started the feature 10th and had climbed to third, inherited the lead and pulled away to win by 1.568 seconds as Justin Henderson and Tatnell duked it out for not only the runner-up position, but the track championship. While Henderson outlasted Tatnell for second place, Tatnell became the first Australian born champion in Huset's Speedway history by narrowly edging Henderson in the championship standings by a mere three points.

Jack Dover rallied from 13th to fourth and Kaleb Johnson rounded out the top five.

McCarl set quick time during qualifying to kick off the night before Henderson, Ian Madsen and Carson McCarl posted heat race victories.

Yeigh advanced from the eighth starting position to take the lead on Lap 12 and he overcame an incident on the final scheduled lap to record his second Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks triumph of the season.

Spenser Kalass held onto the top spot throughout the first 11 laps before Yeigh drove into the lead by riding the high side around the track. The fourth-and-final caution of the race occurred on the scheduled final lap when Mike Chaney made contact with Yeigh entering the bottom of turn three. Both drivers spun and Yeigh reclaimed the position after Chaney was sent to the rear for causing the incident.

Yeigh hit his marks following the green-white-checkered restart for the victory by 0.403 seconds. Tim Dann was second with Olivier rounding out the podium from the 12th starting spot. Eric Moser posted a fourth-place result and Kalass placed fifth.

Colby Klaassen, Olivier and Chaney each earned a heat race win.

Henderson led all 25 laps of the 360ci winged sprint car main event to sweep the weekend at Huset's Speedway for the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and Midwest Power Series action.

A red on Lap 18 and a caution one lap after the restart were the only stoppages throughout the feature, which was won by 0.727 seconds.

Matt Juhl finished second with Riley Goodno placing third from the 10th starting position. Brooke Tatnell advanced from 14 th to fourth and Dover hustled from 22nd to fifth.

Brandon Halverson, Henderson, Micah Slendy and Christopher Thram were the heat race winners and Clint Garner won the B Main.

Thiel, McMullen stand tall in Sprint Car Fair Night main events at Plymouth Dirt Track

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 3, 2022 –On an unseasonably cool early September evening, two of the hottest drivers in their respective Sprint Car racing disciplines continued to excel at a fever pitch, during an all-Sprint Car event at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. held during the 2022 Sheboygan County Fair on Saturday, Sept. 3.

In the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series main event, Scotty Thiel of Sheboygan racked up his series-leading fourth main event victory of the 2022 IRA season in the 30-lap headliner.

Two-time Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh recorded his fourth straight Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association A-main victory in the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasant View Realty PDTR 360 Sprint Car main event.

Polesitter Kyle Schuett of Philo, Ill., who won the most recent IRA A main at The Plymouth Dirt Track on July 30, jumped into the lead in turn one of the opening lap before Scotty Thiel, who started second, pulled off a slide job to seize the top spot in turn four on the opening lap.

On lap 2, fourth starter Zach Hampton of Mooresville, Ind., who was making his debut appearance at The Plymouth Dirt Track, ducked low to briefly challenge Thiel for the top spot.

However, Thiel fended off Hampton’s challenge and pulled away to build up a sizable lead as the leaders began to catch the rear of the field on lap 6. One lap later, the red flag was displayed when IRA point leader and top rookie of the year contender Jake Neuman of New Berlin, Ill., flipped his machine in turn two.

Two laps later, another caution flag appeared when Kris Spitz of Salem stopped in turn two after losing his right rear tire. When the race resumed, Thiel pulled away from Hampton as the leaders began to work their way through lapped traffic on lap 14.

By lap 20, Thiel had built up a full-straightaway lead over Hampton on the lightning-fast, yet slide-job-receptive track surface. Three laps later, a caution flag appeared when Travis Arenz of Sheboygan Falls spun in turn two.

On the restart, Hampton took a shot at the lead as he executed a slide job in turn two to surge ahead before Thiel battled back to regain the top spot in turn three. One lap later, the red flag came out when Austin Hartmann of Plymouth flipped into the turn one catch fence, following contact with Schuett along the front stretch on lap 24.

Over the final six laps, the Thiel-Hampton duel escalated substantially, as Hampton ripped off a slide job in turn two on lap 25 to vault his away into the lead before Thiel came back to return the slide-job favor in turn four to maintain the top spot.

Undaunted, Hampton battled back to surge ahead in turn two and assume the lead on lap 26. However, Thiel unreeled yet another slide job to pull off what proved to be the winning move in turn two on lap 27. Meanwhile, third starter Steve Meyer of Sheboygan Falls came to life along the low groove to move past Hampton and into the runner-up spot on lap 28.

Thiel held off Meyer’s late charge over the final two laps to secure his fourth A-main victory of the 2022 IRA campaign, first IRA main event triumph at The Plymouth Dirt Track since the 2018 season and 23rd career IRA A-main win.

“It’s great to get a win here tonight,” Thiel said in victory lane. “I have to thank the crew for everything they do. Everyone on his team really does a great job to help put us in the position to win these races.

“During the last couple of restarts, I didn’t know what to do or the right way to go to keep the 35 car [Zach Hampton] behind me,” he said. “On the last restart, I decided to just let him go and see where he went and then adjust to what he did. That’s how it played out and luckily everything worked out in our favor over the final few laps.”

Meyer posted a strong second-place finish, Hampton finished third in his third career IRA appearance, seventh starter Jordan Goldesberry of Springfield, Ill. finished fourth and two-time IRA champion Scotty Neitzel of Beaver Dam placed fifth after starting sixth.

In the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasant View Realty PDTR 360 Sprint Car main event, outside front row starter Brandon McMullen outpowered polesitter Tyler Davis of Franklin to surge into the lead along the backstretch on the opening lap. On lap 2, 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Plymouth, who started third, worked his way around Davis to take second.

Two laps later, defending PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion and current point leader Travis Arenz, who started fourth, moved his way into third along the high groove.

The lone caution flag of the race appeared on lap 13 when 2018 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Justin Miller of Plymouth stopped in turn two and Tyler Brabant of Waupun stalled in turn four.

When the race resumed, Arenz worked the high line to power past Schmidt and secure second in the running order. However, Arenz was unable to track down McMullen, who pulled away to build up a full straightaway lead by lap 20 en route to his third straight PDTR 360 Sprint CarA-main victory at The Plymouth Dirt Trackand fourth consecutive overall main event triumph in his last four Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association starts.

The win was also McMullen’s all-time division-leading 27th career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main triumph and 38th career Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association main event victory.

“The car has really been working well over the past few weeks,” McMullen said. “Tonight, we were able run the top, bottom and even the middleat times. Having a car that handles that well in all parts of the track is a testament to the crew. For most of the season, we haven’t been as fast as we wanted to be, but we’ve hit on something lately and the results have shown it.”

Arenz finished second, Schmidt placed third, Davis wound up fourth and 2008 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett finished fifth after starting fifth.

Arenz heads into the final event of the 2022 PDTR 360 Sprint Car season on Saturday, Sept. 24 with a commanding 73-point lead over Ben Schmidt at the top of the standings, as he looks to secure his second straight PDTR 360 Sprint Car crown.

Empire Super Sprints

Brewerton, N.Y. -

Danny Varin continued his hot streak at Brewerton Speedway on Friday night as the Fonda, New York pilot collected his seventh Empire Super Sprints win of the 2022 campaign. Varin ducked under current point leader Jordan Poirier midway through the A Main and handled a couple of late race restarts enroute to the $2,000 payday.

" This is unbelievable, I really don't know what to say " added Varin just before he climbed up the top wing to celebrate in front of a packed house at the D Shaped Dirt Demon. Varin was humble in victory lane, giving credit to his crew, family, friends and sponsors, " I can't thank everyone who supports us enough ".

With a season high 34 cars in the Brewerton pit area, it took four heats to set the 26 car field that would take the green flag for the 25 lap A Main. Current point leader Jordan Poirier and Matt Farnham led the field to green with Poirier grabbing the lead until lap two when Sammy Reakes IV, Shawn Donath and Paulie Colagiovanni got together in turn two resulting with Reakes rolling the 17 and was done for the night. Both Donath and Colagiovanni were able to continue. On the ensuing restart, Poirier took command and began distancing himself from the pack. As Poirier was reaching lapped traffic, Varin ( started sixth ) was slowly reeling Poirier in with Larry Wight ( started 11th ) and Davie Franek ( started eighth ) not far behind. On lap 12, Varin got the bite he needed low off of turn two to power by the Poirier machine. Two laps later, Poirier made contact with a lapped car and came to a stop in between turns one and two, ending his night. The lap 14 restart saw Varin leading Franek, Chuck Hebing, Wight and Jonathan Preston into turn one and it stayed that way until a lap 16 caution bunched the field up again. Chad Miller, Paulie Colagiovanni and Dylan Swiernik came together in turn four ending the night for all three drivers. Larry Wight was able to get by Hebing for third on the restart and set sights on the 01 machine of Varin. The final caution of the night was for Hebing as he came to a stop in turn two which bunched the field and put Franek and Wight on Varin's tail tank for the last seven laps. Wight snuck under Franek on lap 20 to move into second but Varin had moved out to a 10 car advantage by then leaving Wight little to close the gap. Varin cruised to a 5 car length win with Wight and Franek completing the podium. Tommy Wickham ( from 17th ) and Shawn Donath ( early race incident ) rounded out the top five with Jeff Cook, Jonathan Preston, Matt Billings, Jason Barney ( from 25th ) and Scott Kreutter completing the top ten.

Group Fast times were set by Varin, Donath, Reakes and Poirier. Heats were won by Franek, Farnham, Reakes and Poirier. Dylan Swiernik won the Dash and Chad Miller took the B Main.

GOSSELIN GETS FIRST KNIGHTS OF THUNDER WIN, TAKES NIGHT ONE OF BRIGHTON’S LABOUR DAY CLASSIC

By Tommy Goudge

BRIGHTON, Ont. (September 3, 2022) – Dale Gosselin became a first-time winner with the Pinty’s Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car Series on Saturday night at Brighton Speedway. The Quebec driver led a majority of the 25 lap A-Main, but needed a late comeback to secure the win after Josh Hansen slipped past.

Gosselin and Tyler Rand started on the front row for the A-Main, but Hansen quickly moved up to challenge Gosselin. The two raced side-by-side early in the race until Gosselin began to pull away using the outside groove. Hansen patiently ran the low groove and kept the leader in sight, and started to close in again when Gosselin made contact with the front stretch wall. Gosselin was able to keep going, but his lead was then completely erased when Aaron Turkey slid off the track in turn three and brought out the yellow flag with six laps to go.

Hansen took full advantage of the opportunity, getting a great restart and sailing into the lead. Gosselin would not be denied though, and powered back into the lead as the white flag flew. Hansen tried one last-ditch slide job attempt in turn four, but could not complete the move. Gosselin took the win, followed by Hansen, Rand, Nick Sheridan, and row seven starter Ryan Turner.

The Knights of Thunder series will next be in competition at the second night of the Labour Day Classic on Sunday, September 4 at Brighton Speedway. Visit www.knightsofthunder.com for more information.

Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints

Fulton, New York -

Lightnin' Larry Wight lived up to his nickname at Fulton Speedway Saturday night, catching and passing Davie Franek late and in heavy lapped traffic to win his second Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints A Main of the year. The Phoenix, New York driver took the lead from pole sitter Jason Barney midway through the race and was putting some distance between himself and the field until the races only caution on lap 14 brought the field together. Davie Franek dove under Wight just after the restart to take the lead and began to inch away from Wight as the laps wound down. On lap 21, while in heavy lapped traffic, Franek lost momentum behind a lapped car allowing Wight to put himself right up to the left side panel as the two dragged raced off of turn four. Wight edged ahead as Franek looked to repeat the move on the next lap. Franek could reach the Gypsum Express tail tank but did not have enough to retake the lead, settling for the runner up spot. Jonathan Preston ran well all night bringing the Preston Racing 22 home in third place. Jason Barney and Paulie Colagiovanni rounded out the top five. Current point leader Jordan Poirier finished sixth with Joe Trenca, Scott Holcomb, Scott Kreutter and Shawn Donath completing the top ten.

Davie Franek after the race, " That one hurts a little, kind feel like I gave that one away." Franek had a strong weekend with two podium finishes at Brewerton ( 3rd ) and Fulton ( 2nd )

By his own admission Jonathan Preston would say his year has not been what he expected, but a strong showing at Fulton was what he needed, " Car was good tonight, the car 'balled up' when down low but really strong up top, we were fast enough to stay with the leaders ". " It was good to be in the hunt for a win again "

Fast Times were set by Colagiovanni, Poirier and Joe Trenca while the heat race wins went to Franek, Wight and Preston. Matt Farnham won the Dash and Scott Holcomb won the B Main.

DYKSTRA TAKES FIRST NIGHT OF BRIGHTON'S LABOUR DAY CLASSIC

By Tommy Goudge

BRIGHTON, Ont. (September 3, 2022) – Jacob Dykstra took the Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty's Crate Sprint Car win on night one of the Labour Day Classic at Brighton Speedway.

Ashton VanEvery and Johnny Miller made up the front row for the 25 lap A-Main, and VanEvery took the early lead. Dykstra wasted little time moving up from his row four starting position though, and took the lead.

Dykstra opened a gap on the field, but Dale Curran moved up to second and began to cut into Dykstra's lead as traffic became a factor for the leaders. A yellow flag for a melee in turn four brought relief for Dykstra though, and he used the clear track to drive away for the victory when the green flag reappeared.

Curran, who recently returned to Ontario after months of wingless sprint car racing in California, settled for the runner-up spot. Championship contender Mathieu Bardier took the final podium spot, followed by VanEvery and Miller.

The Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty's will next be in competition on Sunday, September 4 for night two of Brighton Speedway's Labour Day Classic Weekend. Visit www.actionsprinttour.com for more information.

TURNER, SMITH, BEAGLE, & DA SILVA WIN ON EPIC RACEWEAR BACKPACK NIGHT AT OHSWEKEN

By Brent Otchere

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (September 2, 2022) – Epic Racewear presented Back to School Backpack Night and Championship Friday for Sprint Cars at Ohsweken Speedway on September 2; Ryan Turner, Lucas Smith, Ryan Beagle, & Tristan Da Silva won their respective A-Mains, while two champions were crowned: the 2022 Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Car Championship went to Cory Turner, and the 2022 Strickland’s Crate Sprint Car Championship went to Lucas Smith.

Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars Nick Sheridan and Aaron Turkey led the 24 car field to green to start the 25 lap 360 Sprint Car A-Main. A three way fight for first between Ryan Turner, Jake Brown, and Aaron Turkey broke out; in the meantime Holly Porter stalked the leaders and entered the top five. An unfortunate hard flip for Jacob Dykstra caused an immediate red flag; Dykstra was unharmed but his car was done for the night.

Porter had raced herself up to second right before the red flag and started right behind Turkey for the single file restart. An untimely right rear tire problem on Porter’s car ended any hopes for a good finish on her best performance of the season. Another red flag appeared as Mack DeMan flipped over the wall and into the back stretch fence; he was able to walk away from his very heavily damaged car unharmed.

Turkey had his first win in sights, but Ryan Turner edged out Turkey in a thrilling finish for the final win of the points season. Turkey settled for second with Sheridan third, Mitch Brown fourth, and Mikey Kruchka fifth. Cory Turner did everything he had to win the championship, which was to keep the car in one piece and finish in fifteenth or higher to clinch his first Ohsweken track championship.

Strickland’s Crate Sprint Cars Darren Dryden and Jesse Costa made up the front row to start the 25 lap Crate Sprint Car A-Main. Dryden had an amazing start, clearing the pack and already catching traffic by the sixth lap. Point leader Lucas Smith raced himself to the second position, shadowing Dryden as they both navigated through the traffic.

Smith bided his time and overtook Dryden, who got bottled up by traffic. The laps ticked off quickly as Smith built a comfortable three second gap over Dryden. With only eight cars left on the lead lap, Smith crossed the finish line in first to claim his second Ohsweken championship – and first in Sprint Cars – in a dominating fashion. Dryden finished second, Brett Stratford third, Costa fourth, and Eric Gledhill in fifth.

Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks Kacey Huffman and Gofast Teeple led the grid to start the 20 lap Thunder Stock A-Main. Ken Sargent quickly gained the lead after starting in the second row. Points leader Dave Bailey raced himself to fourth as the first caution of the race came out for debris on the track. The field then saw more cautions; as the saying goes “cautions breed cautions.”

Bailey had a great restart and took the lead away from Sargent, while Ryan Beagle took advantage of the multiple restarts and worked himself up to fifth. With 10 laps left go Beagle had caught up to Bailey, who stayed ahead until Beagle made the winning move with two laps to go. Bailey settled for second, with Sargent rounding out the final spot on the podium in third. Mark Fawcett and Trevor DeBoer rounded out the top five in fourth and fifth respectively. With one more race left in the season Bailey leads the division by 40 points over Beagle.

HRW Automotive Mini Stocks The front row of the grid featured Steve Miller and Christopher French to start the 15 lap Mini Stock A-Main. French overtook Miller for first until Tristan Da Silva took the lead on lap five. Ryan Hillar snuck up to the second position and brought along Eric Yorke with him in third. The top three broke away from the rest of the field as the laps ticked away.

Da Silva was able to stay ahead by at least two car lengths and crossed the finish line victorious for the first time this season, setting a new 15 lap record for the Mini Stocks in the process. Yorke tried a late surge for second but, Hillar held him off and Yorke settled for third. Wayde Thorne and Tim DeBoer rounded out the top five in fourth and fifth respectively. Despite engine problems for Tyler Lafantaisie which left him salvaging a 12th place finish, he still leads the division by 131 points over Fabio Olivieri going into the last race of the season.

Up Next at Ohsweken Speedway Qwick Wick Fire Starter presents RoC vs. DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds on Friday, September 9, plus 358 Modifieds and the Championship Friday Finale for the Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks.

Shane Golobic and Jake Morgan claim wins at Nor*Cal Posse Shootout opener in Placerville

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…Until last week Shane Golobic had surprisingly gone over two months since visiting victory lane. With summer winding down the Fremont driver has turned up the heat however, by racing to his second consecutive Placerville Speedway victory during the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout opener on Saturday.

Sharing the stage with Golobic on night one of the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout presented by High Sierra Industries was Fair Oaks’ Jake Morgan with the Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour. Both drivers took home extra money in the feature courtesy of Absolute Auto Glass. A total of 70 cars filled the pit area to open the double header on Labor Day weekend.

In the 30-lap Winged Sprint Car feature it was Hanford’s Michael Faccinto who took command early on and held a steady lead out front. The driver of the F&F Racing x1 looked stout until getting hiked up on the cushion at one point in turn four. Five-time Placerville winner this year Justin Sanders then blasted into the lead around the halfway point, as excellent racing was seen all through the field.

Golobic was progressively making his way forward from the eighth starting spot and looked to the inside of Sanders on lap 20 but came up just short. The next time by Golobic drove to the inside once again, contact ensued, and resulted in Sanders getting upside down off the fourth corner. The two-time Trophy Cup champ led the remaining distance to grab his 12th career Winged 360 win at the track, tying Andy Gregg, Scooter Lambert and Stephen Allard.
Colby Copeland continued to show that he’s one of the best at navigating the red clay with a charge from 12th to second in the feature. Tanner Carrick came home in third, with 10th starter Colby Johnson and 13th starting Tony Gomes rounding out the top-five. Faccinto, Gauge Garcia, Ryan Robinson, 22nd starting Justyn Cox and 24th starter Shane Hopkins completed the top-10.

Tanner Carrick opened the night by earning the ADCO Driveline/ Sierra Foothill Wine Services fast time award in the 36-car field.

Malueg of Johnsburg, IL was third. Tim Brannam of Holiday Hills, IL fourth. Franksville's Derek Fortier fifth.
"I saw Mark's line a lap before and decided to go for it," Neau said of his victory move. "It worked and for us to win and take the championship, too, it means a lot. I have to thank my Dad, my sister, my wife and my two sons, Carter and Grady, who got the night started by leading everyone in saying Let's Go Racing!"
"My dad, Dave, and my family, crew and sponsors, have stayed behind me the last 11 years I've been racing," said Cody Erickson of Algonquin, IL after capturing his first ever Wilmot Mountain Street Stock championship. "This is great. The Cadzilla has raced at the Bristol Dirt Nationals, and other tracks, and now it's won a championship. I have to thank Rob (Maule) for his support, especially the night I wasn't feeling well and he, along with his wife, Brooke, convinced me to race. And he's the one who was chasing me in the points. It shows how class of a person and race team they are."
Pell Lake's Cody Potter, won his second 20-lap Street Stock feature of the season, taking the lead three laps into the main event. Ironically, Maule was eliminated when he was involved in an opening lap tangle in turn two. Potter went on to the victory with Erickson ending up second. Salem's James Jaime was third. Pleasant Prairie's Josh Gehrig fourth. Robby Olson of Lindenhurst, IL fifth.
"This car runs a lot on asphalt, but it worked tonight," said Potter. "I missed the opening lap mess and was able to get out in front from there. I have to thank my dad, Landry, for his help in setting up the car and all of our sponsors."
John Cole of McHenry, IL worked into the lead from his front row starting spot, going on to his fourth feature win of the season in the 25-lap Bandit 4-Cylinder Stock Cars Season Championship main. Salem's Ryan Johnson ended up second in a tight battle for runner-up. Scott Ellis of Lake Villa, IL, took third place, good enough to score his second Wilmot championship in a row. Salem's Chris Abel was fourth. Rick Zifko of Aurora, IL fifth.
"I wish I hadn't missed that one night earlier in the year or we had one more points night," said Cole, admitting it could have put him in a closer battle with Scott Ellis at the end. "I congratulate Scott. I thank the folks who did the track prep as it was perfect for us. Staying green the final 17 laps was awesome, too."
Ellis credits his family, especially his Dad, Steve Ellis of Pleasant Prairie who also races in the Bandits, for all of his help in helping him secure a back to back championship.
The 20-lap Gerber Collision & Glass Modified Season Championship Feature stayed in the Simons family as Nick Simons of Genoa City captured his fourth main win of the year and second in a row.
Caution periods seemed to not be when you wanted to be in the lead. The leader during four separate yellow flags for various incidents was not the first place runner within a lap of the race going back green. Nick Simons used the high groove to overtake his older brother, Mike Simons, also of Genoa City, with three laps left on a restart. Nick Simons was up to one more challenge and did not let anyone get around him after a sixth and final caution two laps from the finish closed the field one last time. At the checkered it was Nick Simons the feature winner, who was undefeated in all nine of his heat race starts this season. Waterford's Mike Wittenburg took second in a tight finish. Mike Simons finished third to earn his fourth Wilmot season championship. Milwaukee's David Wirth was fourth. Bristol's John Dost fifth.
"We come here to race to win and let the points fall where they may," said Nick Simons, who finished second in the season standings for the fifth year in a row. "I have to thank my family, my sponsors, which include my brother's business, Mike's Flooring, and all of the great fans. Finishing second to Mike isn't all that bad."
"I which we could have run a little better, but I think we hurt the motor and were running on only seven cylinders," said Mike Simons of the championship run and his fourth title. "I hope the fans were entertained, because that's what we're here for. The fourth one doesn't feel any different then the first because we race to win, not points race. I have to thank all of our sponsors, my parents, my family, Jolyen and Trynity, and everybody who helps out."
The final race of the night saw the AutoMeter/Brewington Electric 20-lap feature go to Bristol's Mike Klemko. Klemko took the lead from his fellow front row starter Rusty Egan of Round Lake Beach, IL on the second lap. The only caution eight laps from the finish kept the field tight and eliminated lapped traffic from entering into the mix. At the checkered it was Klemko by less than a car length. Kansasville's Ryan Marshall was second. Allen Hafford of Beach Park, IL third. Clayton Rossmann of Wadsworth, IL fourth. Egan ended up fifth.
"It's been a rough year for us so to win on championship night is great," said Klemko, who became the seventh different WingLESS feature winner at Wilmot this season. "I have to thank all of our sponsors, the crew, my family, everyone who has stayed behind us through the challenges this year."
Tim Cox of Park City, IL finished sixth in the feature to secure his second Wilmot WingLESS championship and third type of Wilmot crown, having also won the 1989 Wilmot Modified Racing Association(MRA) title.
"Who would have known that 33 years after the first one we won, I'd be standing here again as a Wilmot champion, and the first to ever win two WingLESS titles," said Cox, joined by his family including his grandson in the victory celebration. "I have to thank my family, crew and all of my sponsors. This championship is for a dear friend of ours and member of the team, Wendy Chapleau-Suhling, who we lost to cancer this year. This championship is for her."
The final scheduled race night at Wilmot Raceway is the 5th Annual Jim "Wild Man" Watson Classic featuring the WABMAN Dirt Kings Late Model Tour on Saturday, September 10.

Eliason finally finds victory lane at Attica; Horstman wraps up 6th NRA title with GLSS win; Foos earns third 305 victory

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Cory Eliason has had a “love/hate” relationship with Attica Raceway Park. The Visalia, California driver has finished on the podium several times over the past couple of years at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” track but just couldn’t seem to find victory lane. That came to an end Saturday, Sept. 2 to wrap up the Attica Ambush weekend as he dominated the 35-lap 410 sprint feature for a $7,000 pay off on Great Lakes Truck Centers/All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads Night.

Eliason, who parted ways a few weeks ago with his All Star Circuit of Champions team, drove the Bernie and Betsy Stuebgen owned Indy Race Parts backed #71 to a convincing win, even surviving a restart with just four laps to go. Eliason joked in the past he was going to get to Attica early to have a talk with the track for better results.

“We got here at 4:30…maybe I was doing it all wrong, maybe I got here early and tried to talk to it and just made it mad…just needed to let do its thing. It’s a good feeling…this place eluded me. We’ve had two or three speedweek times where we’ve run second and just ran second earlier this year. I can’t thank Bernie and Betsy enough for giving me this opportunity. It’s been a tough season and it’s a good feeling to know I can still get the job done and do it for them. We couldn’t come out yesterday because Bernie has a business and he has work to do…he has to stay and work to pay the bills,” said Eliason.

“I got to lapped traffic and the track got dirtier and I kind of started searching and I knew I wasn’t as quick as I was in clean air. I didn’t know how big a lead I had. I knew Tim (Shaffer) was quick in the heat race and I had a good battle with him for quite awhile and I knew he was going to be coming. I just kept going as hard as I could. I’m thankful for those yellows. That last one I had gotten to three lapped cars racing middle, top and bottom and I didn’t really know where to go. I haven’t really gotten along with this place over the years but it goes to show if you keep pursuing it it will get better,” added Eliason.

With his sixth place finish Cole Macedo pads his lead in the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group heading into the championship weekend.

After a tremendous battle early with Tyler Rankin, Cloverdale, Ohio’s Jared Horstman took the lead for good on lap 13 of the 25-lap Great Lakes Super Sprints feature and drove to his second career 360 win at Attica. The victory wrapped up the sixth championship of the Ohio Logistics National Racing Alliance Sprint Invaders and was worth $3,000. Also, Elida, Ohio’s Max Stambaugh came home third and claimed the 2022 Great Lakes Super Sprints title.

“The guys back in the pits did a heck of a job putting this thing together. Tyler (Rankin) was good on the top and we crossed slide jobs a few times there and got together down the back stretch…didn’t mean for that to happen. The car was good and can’t complain a bit. This is good tight racing. A good group here with the NRA and GLSS coming together…a fantastic field and great to see this program building,” said Horstman beside his M&W Construction, Miller Construction, T&D Interiors, Scott Miller Trucking backed #17.

Fremont, Ohio’s Matt Foos, Attica’s 2015 dirt truck track champion, took the lead with just six laps to go in the Fremont Fence 305 Sprint feature and held off a charging Paul Weaver who had started 17th, to claim his third victory of the season at Attica and the seventh of his career at the track.

“What a weekend. We will take a second (Friday) and a win! We were all racing hard there and when that caution came out (with four laps to go) I really didn’t even know I was in the lead. This old car carries some torch marks from Tony Beaber and still runs fantastic,” said Foos beside his Level Performance, Mitten Painting, Fremont Fence, Rohr Total Lawn Care, DJ Johnson & Family, M&L Excavating, Level Utilities, Chuck’s Budget Brakes, The Car Spa, Berryman Racing Shocks, Kear’s Speed Shop, 818 Club backed #12.

Weaver’s big run to second pads his point lead in the NAPA of Bryan AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales heading to championship weekend.

In the 35-lap Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprint feature, Eliason grabbed the early lead over Byron Reed, Zeth Sabo, Friday night’s winner Tim Shaffer, Cole Macedo and Travis Philo. After a lap one caution, Shaffer took third and pressured Reed for second as Eliason pulled away.

Just as Eliason got to lapped traffic on lap eight a caution flew as he led Reed, Shaffer, Sabo, Philo, Cole Macedo and Cale Thomas. When the race resumed Eliason again pulled away from Reed and Shaffer and Thomas vaulted into the fourth spot.

As Eliason prepared to enter heavy lapped traffic again on lap 16 the caution flew followed by a red as Philo spun battling for fourth with DJ Foos with no place to go, flipping off turn two (he was not injured).

Once again on the restart Eliason pulled away from Reed as Shaffer and Trey Jacobs battled for thirds. With four laps to go Jacobs would spin setting up a four lap battle to the checkers. Eliason got a great restart and drove away to the win over Shaffer, Reed, Thomas and Chris Andrews.

Tylar Rankin jumped into the lead of the GLSS feature over Stambaugh, Horstman Zane DeVault, Dan McCarron and Hud Horton. Horstman began pressuring Stambaugh for second on lap five right before a red on lap seven for a flipping Dustin Daggett who was uninjured.

On the restart Horstman took second and drove to Rankin’s inside for the lead as the pair made heavy contact down the back stretch but kept rolling. Rankin and Horstman traded sliders lap after lap until there were 12 to go when Horstman solidified his position at the front. A red for a tip over by Bryan Sebetto on lap 14 kept the field close.

On the ensuing restart McCarron took second from Rankin but Horstman was pulling away. McCarron closed the final four laps but Horstman drove to the win. Stambaugh, Phil Gressman and Rankin rounded out the top five.

Matt Lucius grabbed the early lead of the 25-lap 305 sprint A-main over Kody Brewer, Mike Keegan, Kasey Jedrzejek and Steve Rando. A caution on lap three saw the restart order of Lucius, Keegan, Brewer and Jedrzejek who took third a circuit later. Keegan took the lead on lap 12 but had a challenge from Lucius and Jedrzejek

With 10 laps to go it was a great four car battle for the lead involving Keegan, Jedrzejek, Jamie Miller and Foos who had started eighth. Jedrzejek, who won his first Attica feature the previous Friday, grabbed the top spot on lap 17 only to see Foos use lapped traffic to seize the top spot on lap 19.

After a caution for second running Jedrzejek with four laps to go, the restart would see Foos lead Weaver who drove through the pack from his 17th starting position. Foos was not to be denied as he took the checkers over Weaver, Keegan, Miller and Brewer.

Attica Raceway Park will wrap up the 2022 season on Friday, Sept. 9 for Kistler Racing Products/Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome Plating presents the Mark Keegan Classic Season Championship Night (rain date of Sept. 16). The AFCS 410 sprints will pay $4,000 to win while the UMP late models will battle for $2,000 to win and the AFCS 305 sprints going for $1,000 to win.

Reutzel and Henderson Earn Victories at Huset's Speedway During Opening Round of The Bull Haulers Brawl Presented by Folkens Bros. Trucking

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 3, 2022) - Aaron Reutzel and Justin Henderson produced feature triumphs on Saturday evening during the opening night of The Bull Haulers Brawl presented by Folkens Bros. Trucking.

It marked the first win of the season at Huset's Speedway for both drivers.

Reutzel wired the field during the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association and Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig 25-lap main event.

A pair of red flags within the first two laps and cautions on Lap 8 and Lap 16 brought the field to the rear bumper of Reutzel, who powered away on each restart while riding the cushion around the high-banked track. Traffic allowed Carson McCarl early and Jack Dover late to reel in Reutzel, who held onto the point to win by 0.829 seconds.

Ian Madsen capitalized on a last-lap slide job in turns three and four to get by Dover for the runner-up position. Mark Dobmeier hustled from 14 th to fourth and Riley Goodno rounded out the top five.

Reutzel set quick time during qualifying before Tim Estenson, Dover and Brendan Mullen posted heat race victories.

Henderson led all 20 laps of the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series main event, holding off Kaleb Johnson by 0.700 seconds.

The feature was slowed by a caution on Lap 8 and a red flag on Lap 9. Otherwise it was smooth sailing for Henderson, who efficiently navigated traffic en route to the 360ci winged sprint car triumph.

Matt Juhl placed third with Eric Lutz ending fourth. Goodno, who started 14 th, executed a last-lap pass on Dover to secure the fifth-place finish.

The heat races were won by Juhl, Lutz, Brooke Tatnell and Christopher Thram. Clint Garner was the B Main winner.

The season concludes at Huset's Speedway on Sunday. The Bull Haulers Brawl presented by Folkens Bros. Trucking features the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association and Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig, the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series 360 sprint cars and the Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks.

The gates open at 4:30 p.m. with Opening Ceremonies scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

Arenz earns first MSA Harry Neitzel Tribute triumph at Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 2, 2022 – Defending Midwest Sprint Car Association champion and current point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan earned his seventh Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car A-main victory of the 2022 season, while etching his name on the distinguished list of winners of the Harry Neitzel Tribute race Friday, Sept. 2 at the Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway in Beaver Dam, Wis.

The fifth annual Harry Neitzel Tribute event drew a field of 19 MSA 360 Sprint Cars to the sprawling “horsepower half mile” Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway facility to compete in honor of Neitzel, who was one of the MSA’s biggest and most beloved supporters.

In the 20-lap main event, five-time MSA champion and inaugural 2017 Harry Neitzel Tribute winner Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee jumped into the lead on the drop of the green flag from the pole position.

Meanwhile, sixth starter Tim Haddy of Waupun rode the high groove into second place in turn four on the opening circuit. On lap 2, 2011 MSA champ Ben Schmidt of Plymouth, who started fourth, worked his way past Haddy into second before moving in to challenge Davis for the top spot along the low line on lap 3.

As Davis and Schmidt continued their side-by-side duel, third starter Travis Arenz moved in to make it a three-way battle for the top spot as the leaders caught the back of the field on lap 7.

The first of two caution flags appeared on lap 8 when Haddy stopped in turn two. On the restart, Arenz made a big move along the low groove to sweep past Schmidt and pressure Davis for the lead.

After hounding Davis for two laps, Arenz bolted into the lead along the high groove of the fast and smooth half-mile clay oval in turn two on lap 10. By lap 15, Arenz had built up a full straightaway cushion over Davis as Schmidt began to challenge for the runner-up spot.

The second and final caution flag appeared on lap 17 when Katelyn Krebsbach of Cascade spun in turn two. With less than five laps remaining, the race resumed following a single-file restart as Arenz maintained the top spot while Schmidt ducked underneath Davis to seize second in turn two.

Arenz held on over the final three laps to secure his first Harry Neitzel Tribute race victory, seventh MSA main event triumph of the 2022 season and 29th career MSA A-main win.

“The car was just perfect,” Arenz said after the race. “It was actually faster at the end of the race, but during the last two laps it started stumbling. I think I was almost out of gas. It means a lot to win this race. I remember Harry [Neitzel] selling me tearoffs back in the day when I raced a four-cylinder car.”

Schmidt placed second, Davis was third, 2005 MSA champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett moved up from the 11th starting spot to finish fourth and fifth starter Tyler Brabant of Waupun placed fifth.

Travis Arenz registered the fastest lap in MSA group qualifying with a time of 19.693.

Tim Haddy and Tyler Brabant posted eight-lap MSA heat race victories.

The MSA 360 Sprint Car Series is scheduled to return to the Dodge County Fairgrounds on Friday, Sept. 23 prior to closing out the 2022 season on Saturday, Sept. 24 during the Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships at The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis.

BRENT MARKS OPENS "SHARON NATIONALS" WITH $6000 ALL STAR WIN; ROB KRISTYAK ENDS 3+ YR WINLESS DROUGHT IN RUSH SPORTMAN MOD TOUR; 1ST STOCK WIN FOR SCOTT STIFFLER

 September 2, 2022

By Mike Leone

(Hartford, OH)…Sharon Speedway kicked off night one of the return of the "Sharon Nationals" after 17 years on Friday night as it was the 14th straight event completed during the 93rd anniversary season. Celebrating with wins in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane were Brent Marks-Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars, Rob Kristyak-HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modified Flynn's Tire Touring Series, and Scott Stiffler-Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks. There were 87 cars in the pit area for the three-division show on Bala Management Night.

After losing the April 30 All Star event on the final lap to Cap Henry, Brent Marks redeemed himself with an impressive first career Sharon win to open the "Sharon Nationals". Marks took the lead from Bill Balog on eight, fended off a mid-race challenge by Dale Blaney, then kept 11th starting Tyler Courtney at bay in the closing laps for the $6,000 win in the 30-lap feature. For Marks, it was his fourth All Star win of the season and 15th overall in "410" Sprint Car competition part of his career best season.

“I knew it had to be close,” stated the 31-year-old Myerstown, Pa standout. “We had one heck of a night. Forced to bounce back after a crash during qualifying, the guys busted their butts to get us back out there for the heat race. The driveline was still bent after the heat so we had to come back and replace that. I’m just so thankful for them to work their butts off to get us back to where we are now. With so much going on, we really didn’t get a chance to analyze any setups. It wasn’t until after the dash that we got a chance to kinda sit down and discuss our approach. Even at that point, we were still kinda guessing on what this thing needed.”

After an opening lap flip by Kyle Reinhardt, Balog used the outside to pass pole-sitter Marks for the early lead, while Dale Blaney passed his brother Dave for third. The Blaneys continued their battle over the next several laps. Meanwhile, the battle for the lead heated up as Balog and Marks raced side-by-side with Balog up top and Marks on the bottom. Marks snuck past Balog off the bottom of turn four for the winning move on lap eight before a caution for George Hobaugh. Two laps later, Dave Blaney, Zeb Wise, and Justin Peck, who were running fourth through sixth, got collected in a turn two melee to bring out the final caution of the event.

When green replaced yellow, Dale Blaney drove under Balog for second on lap 11. The "Low Rider" then caught Marks on lap 14, while Courtney entered the picture challenging Balog for third. Courtney and Balog put on an excellent side-by-side battle for five laps before Courtney got by for good on lap 18. Back up front, Blaney was all over Marks on laps 19 and 20. Marks caught traffic on lap 21 and was able to gap Blaney, who had his hands full with Courtney. Courtney slipped past Blaney on lap 23 for second then went after Marks.

Marks though was able to make the right moves in lapped traffic and took the checkered flag first for his eighth career All Star win by 1.584 seconds in the Murray-Marks Motorsports, M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Paint/Fredericksburg Eagle Hotel-sponsored #19. Courtney's runner-up finish allowed him to extend his All Stars points lead over Peck, who failed to finish the feature. Balog got by Blaney on lap 24 to finish third. Dale Blaney was fourth in his first All Star race in more than a year. Hunter Schuerenberg went 10th to fifth.

After winning the season opener at Sharon, Henry had a strong sixth after starting 17th! A.J. Flick was eighth and earned a $150 bonus from Mobile Bail Bonds for being the highest eligible local finisher. Rico Abreu was ninth after starting 15th. Wise came back to finish 10th.

Marks set fast time overall against the 40-car field in qualifying with a lap of 14.805. Heat winners were Peck, Wise, Balog, and Flick. Marks also won the dash to earn the pole, while Kasey Kahne won the last chance B main in his first All Star and Sharon start of 2022.

Rob Kristyak ended a winless drought of more than three years at Sharon with a dominating performance in the 25-lap HTMA/Precise Racing Products feature presented by Jerry Rents LLC. Kristyak, who owns 11 career Big-Block Modified wins, led wire-to-wire taking the $1,000 victory by nearly six seconds in the non-stop feature timed in 8:22.894. Kristyak became the fourth different Flynn's Tire Touring Series winner in as many 2022 races as he also ended more than a three-year winless drought in the Tour with his first win since July 11, 2019 at Expo Speedway.

"I needed that to go green-to-checkered," acknowledged the 44-year-old Bristolville, Ohio veteran. "I knew Tony (Tatgenhorst) would be coming on the low side. I told the pit crew before I went out that I just needed to drive slow and don't go to the high side. Thank you to Jerry Schaffer for the extra money, Vicki (Emig), and Sharon Speedway for putting this on. We picked up a new sponsor this year, Bala Management with Scott Thompson- hopefully he's up there. I have to thank all my sponsors, my wife, son, and everyone that helps me. I have to thank my guys for sticking with me; I could take them anywhere."

Kristyak used the outside to power past Doug Rutana on the start with Tony Tatgenhorst following in second. By lap two, the top two of Kristyak and Tatgenhorst quickly began to distance themselves from the field, while Cole Edwards moved into the top five by passing Bill Cunningham. Kristyak pulled away from Tatgenhorst on lap eight and caught lapped traffic on lap 12; meanwhile, Rutana was trying to fend off Todd English and Edwards in the battle for third.

Lapped traffic didn't slow Kristyak during the second half of the event as he pulled away and took the checkered flag first by a commanding 5.761 seconds in his Mark Thomas Ford/Jeff's Towing & Auto Repair/Wedge Motorsports/ BALA Management/Bristol Disposal/C&R Tire/Texas Roadhouse Niles-sponsored #00. While the win was Kristyak's ninth of his career in RUSH Sportsman Modified competition, it was just his third at Sharon and first since June 22, 2019 and second of his career with the Touring Series. Kristyak also became the seventh different winner in nine races this year at Sharon.

Tatgenhorst, who won his first career Sharon feature on May 28, was a career best second in Touring Series competition. Rutana's third place was a career best finish for the second year racer. English was fourth. Edwards earned his first career top five finish at Sharon and with the Touring Series in fifth for the 14-year-old second year racer. In addition to the extra $200 to the winner, positions two through five received a $100 bonus from Jerry Schaffer of Jerry Rents.

After struggling in his heat race, Ayden Cipriano, who had won the last two races at Sharon, raced from 15th to sixth and was all over Edwards at the finish. Cipriano, who took over the Flynn's Tire Tour points lead, received a $50 Precise Racing Products gift card and a $100 Summit Racing Equipment gift car for being the hard charger. Kyle Martell was seventh. After a season best fifth place finish last Saturday night at Sharon, Cunningham dropped from fourth to eighth at the finish. Josh Deems was ninth beating out Eric Gabany, who was subbing for Garrett Krummert. Heat winners over the 21-car field were Edwards, Tatgenhorst, and Holden.

Using a car he built from scratch two years ago, Scott Stiffler returned to victory lane for the first time in more than six years at Sharon with his first ever Pro Stock win at the track! Stiffler, a 20-time E-Mod winner, led wire-to-wire in the 20-lap Gibson Insurance Agency feature holding off three-time 2022 winner and former track champion, Curt J. Bish, for the $750 victory.

"I was worried about all the restart but the guy that was helping me called it saying there were going to be some cautions," explained the 52-year-old Farmdale, Ohio racer. "He told me to take care of them (tires) and I did. I heard Bish and saw the 7 (Longwell) was coming and I thought 'it's about to get interesting'- then I quit hearing Bish so that was a good thing. I was entering a little too fast and using the brake to get back down instead of letting it float- that was driver error."

Stiffler took off in the lead from the pole, while Bish passed Brian Carothers for second. Coleton Longwell got into Carothers while making the pass for third on lap four. Will Thomas III then dropped Carothers back another spot when he grabbed fourth on lap five. Thomas slowed with a flat tire bringing out the caution with eight laps completed. A four-car accident on the ensuing restart was the last stoppage as the final 12 laps went green-to-checkered.

Bish pressured Stiffler during the second-half of the feature, but Stiffler was able to hold on by 0.441 seconds for his 21st career win in his Integra Fabricating/Wehrs Machine/Close Racing Supply/Wedge Motorsports/Cyndi's Custom Creations-sponsored #14. Longwell crossed the finish in third, but was disqualified in post-race tech for a deck height violation. Carothers was credited with third.

Steve D'Apolito was fourth after starting eighth. Bobby Whitling was fifth. Thomas came back to finish sixth over Paul Davis. Larry Kugel went 15th to eighth. Jordan Perkins was ninth. Sixteenth starting Jonathan Davis completed the top 10. Heat winners over the 26-car field were Stiffler, Carothers, and Bish.

The "Sharon Nationals" will conclude on Saturday night (September 3) with the 14th annual "Lou Blaney Memorial" paying $12,000 to-win plus the BRP Tour for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Big-Block Modifieds for $2,500 to-win.

Bala Management has added $2,000 in bonus monies for the Modifieds. Gates open at 3 p.m. with warmups at 6:30 with qualifying and racing to follow.

Shaffer honors late Trevor Baker with Attica Ambush win; Missler gets thrilling late model win; Weaver earns last corner last lap 305 victory

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – A little over a week ago Ohio sprint driver Trevor Baker – whose cheerful personality made him many friends in the racing community - lost his life in a vehicle crash in Florida. Tim Shaffer and his car owner Bryan Grove paid tribute to Baker Friday, Sept. 2 at Attica Raceway Park, as the Steel City Outlaw and hall of fame driver put the #45 in victory lane to kick off the Attica Ambush on Stillwater Metals/Murphy Tractor and Equipment/Great Lakes Truck Centers/Griff’s Engines and Machine Night.

Because Grove made his sprint car look like Baker’s to honor the Shreve, Ohio driver, many felt Baker’s presence at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speedplant, including Shaffer.

“That yellow flag helped me out. I had to move around in lapped traffic and I finally messed with the wing. I put it on the high side where Trevor liked to run….he was definitely with us tonight. So cool for Bryan Grove to honor Trevor. This one is for the Baker family,” said Shaffer beside his Canton Erectors/Ron Jacobs Trucking/RPM Chassis backed machine.

It was Shaffer’s 20th career Attica win placing the four time All Star champion fifth on the all-time 410 sprint win list at the track. Though he led all 30 laps for the $5,000 payday, it wasn’t easy as traffic allowed Jordan Ryan to close and challenge at the half-way point before a caution on lap 18 gave Shaffer a clear track. Shaffer pulled away for the win with DJ Foos getting around Ryan on the white flag lap to earn a second place finish while Ryan, Trey Jacobs and 12th starter Ricky Peterson rounded out the top five.

By finishing second Foos, the defending All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group champion, closes the game on Cole Macedo.

The 30 lap Sunoco American Late Model Series feature was a dandy as four to five cars battled for the top spot nearly the entire way before Bellevue, Ohio’s Ryan Missler secured his second win of the season at Attica, and it was worth $5,000.

“We were really coming up there about half way…I feel we had the best car out there. It’s a shame something happened to Ryan Markham but I think we had something for him before he broke. It’s great to defend the home turf against a stout field,” said Missler beside his Weekley Electric, MGZX Technologies, HAFTAL, Kepling Flooring, Jackson Farms, Rocket Chassis, Handy Graphics, York Fabrication, Stakt Products, Big D’s Pizza, Elite Motorsports, Accuforce, SCS Gearbox, Maga Lifts, Missler’s Sweets #50.

Defending and three time track champion Devin Shiels led the first 12 laps before Markham got by and pulled away from a tremendous battle for second involving Shiels, Devin Moran, Missler and Collin Shipley. A caution on lap 21 put Shiels, Missler and Moran right on Markham’s rear bumper. Three laps later Markham experienced engine woes and went to the pits, handing the lead to Missler. Moran moved into second with four to go and was closing on Missler, but the five time Attica champion was able to negotiate through traffic for his 18th career Attica win over Moran, Shiels, Mike Bores and Shipley.

Just like the previous week, the Fremont Fence 305 Sprint feature came down to the last corner of the last lap. Last week it was Kasey Jedrzejek who grabbed the dramatic win. This Friday it was veteran Paul Weaver who drove under Jedrzejek coming to the checkers to steal his fourth win of the season and 68th of his career in the division. The victory was worth $1,500.

“That’s just youth. He must have heard me because he began to drive harder and made one mistake. I just went where he wasn’t,” said Weaver beside his Steve Brown’s B&B Drain Service/M&L Excavating/Hampshire Engines backed #31.

The win gives Weaver a little more breathing room in his quest to win his third straight NAPA of Bryan AFCS presented Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales title.

Night #2 of the Attica Ambush will feature the AFCS 410 sprints going for $7,000 to win; the AFCS 305s going for $1,500 to win and the 360 Ohio Logistics NRA Sprints battling for $3,000 to win.

DYKSTRA WINS AT MERRITTVILLE, RETAKES ACTION SPRINT TOUR POINTS LEAD

By Tommy Goudge with files from Jonathon Howe

THOROLD, Ont. (August 27, 2022) – Jacob Dykstra retook the championship points lead for the Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s on Saturday night win a win at Merrittville Speedway.

Adrian Stahle and Ashton VanEvery had front row starting spots for the 25 lap A-Main, but Dykstra used the high line to take the lead on lap one. Dykstra proceeded to lap nearly half the field until a caution flag appeared on lap 22 to set up a single-file restart. This gave Mike Bowman a chance to take his fifth AST win, but Dykstra was too strong and drove off to take his third AST win of the season. Bowman took the runner-up spot, followed by Brett Stratford, Mathieu Bardier, and Darren Dryden.

The win moved Dykstra back to the Action Sprint Tour championship points lead by six markers over Bardier. The Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s will next be in competition on Saturday, September 3 and Sunday, September 4 at Brighton Speedway’s Labour Day Classic Weekend.

Logan Spahr Grabs First RaceSaver Win
08-29-2022

After a couple of close-but-not-quite finishes at Selinsgrove Speedway, Lewisberry’s Logan Spahr was due, and the second-year River Valley Builders PA Sprint Series driver collected that debt Saturday night, scoring his first IMCA/RaceSaver victory in the 20-lap feature after a torrid duel with veteran Doug Dodson.

Driving the K.R. MacDonald Inc./High Tech Metals/R.L. Snyder Electric #5 owned by former PASS regular Wally Eshenaur, Spahr took the lead from Tyler Snook of Beavertown on lap three after some side-by-side racing. Then, after a red flag for an incident involving Mike Melair, Austin Reed, and Justin Mills on the front stretch, Spahr lost the lead to Dodson, who had charged from eighth starting position.

Undaunted, Spahr went after Dodson, and the two swapped the lead back and forth until Spahr adjusted his line to take away Dodson’s preferred line. With the race staying green for the last 17 laps, traffic also became a factor, but Spahr handled that situation like a seasoned veteran. His victory margin over Dodson, of Middletown, was about 10 car lengths.

Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery sliced through the field from tenth starting spot to finish third. Snook, who battled for the lead in last Saturday’s make-up feature at Port Royal Speedway, had his second straight strong showing with a fourth, and Zach Rhodes of McVeytown, driving Roger Weaver’s #31, was fifth.

Jeff Weaver, Mike Alleman, Ken Duke Jr., Logan Jones, and Christian Rumsey completed the top 10.

Reed, who was the only driver from the lap three incident able to stay in the race, was the race’s hard charger, coming from 26th starting position to finish 15th. Rookie Timmy Bittner, who has made multiple hard charges this year, came from 24th to 14th.

In victory lane, Spahr said that he had not expected a win so early in his RaceSaver career; this was his 33rd race. The excited winner thanked crew and sponsors, referring to them as family. Those sponsors, incidentally, include the PA Game Commission, which also will sponsor the “Race to Hunting Season,” an exciting new PASS special event September 17 at Selinsgrove.

Apache Tree Service sponsors the points standings for RaceSavers at Selinsgrove, where Spahr, Dodson, Bard, and Snook should benefit from their strong performances Saturday.

Heat races for the 37 PASS competitors on hand were won by Jason Roush, Bard, Snook, and Weaver. Jake Waters won the strong, 14-car b-main.

Next weekend, the River Valley Builders PASS tour makes its final 2022 stop at Path Valley Speedway. That will be a non-points event, due to the IMCA RaceSaver Nationals being held at Eagle Raceway in Nebraska.

Day, Steuerwald and Ballenger Score Top Prize During Royal River Casino Night at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Aug. 28, 2022) - Corey Day, Matt Steuerwald and Dusty Ballenger hit the jackpot on Sunday at Huset's Speedway, which hosted Royal River Casino Night.

Additionally, the first track champion of the season was crowned as Jacob Hughes captured the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series title by only one point in a championship fight that came down to the wire.

"Oh that's awesome," he said. "We got it done. We're champions. Me and dad worked our tails off for this one and I'm proud to bring that trophy back to our shop."

Day made the most of his Huset's Speedway debut by leading the final 10 laps of the 25-lap Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig feature to become the seventh different feature winner in the division this season.

Kaleb Johnson held the point for the first 15 laps, highlighted by a stout battle in thick traffic as the top four drivers where within a couple of seconds near the midpoint of the race. Day executed a slide job a lap after the final restart of the race.

"It started to rubber up there like a lane off the top," he said. "I figured if I hopefully hit it better than him in one and two (I could) slide him in three and four."

Right after Day made his move on Johnson Ryan Timms advanced into second place and closed within a couple of car lengths of Day before jumping the cushion in turns one and two in the closing laps.

"I was just trying to get as many cars as I could there," Day said. "He's got a few more races here than I do and he knows how it works and I really don't. I didn't know where he was, if he was behind me or not, so I just kept trying to put as many lapped cars behind us."

Timms rebounded from the near incident with a wall and closed the gap to finish second by 0.693 seconds.

"Every time I got close to someone I'd catch their dirty air and put it in the fence," he said. "That's kind of what got us tonight. I felt like we were the fastest car on the track so I'm still happy with it."

Ayrton Gennetten posted a third-place result.

"I started in front of both of them and I felt we had a good car," he said. "I just messed up. I never should have let Corey get by me and then I should have slid Ryan about eight or 10 laps in. We had a good run. Third is nothing to hang our heads about."

Johnson recorded a fourth-place result and Justin Henderson rounded out the top five.

Gennetten was quickest in qualifying and Day, Timms and Brooke Tatnell posted heat race victories.

Steuerwald took the lead on Lap 11 and held on to the top spot for the final eight laps to score his track-leading third Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks triumph of the season and the 20th of his career.

"There was no breathing room tonight," he said. "The track was a little tricky. You gotta do what you gotta do to get the win. I could see J.J. start moving up a little bit and when he moved up he was skated out more and more. I started going half throttle around the corner. When he was blowing his tires loose I went half throttle."

Colby Klaassen advanced to a runner-up result - 1.528 seconds behind Steuerwald - with J.J. Zebell, who led the first 10 laps, placing third. Tim Dann ended fourth and Dustin Gulbrandson was fifth.

The heat races were won by Kinzer Glanzer, Zebell and Steuerwald.

Ballenger led the distance of the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series main event, which was shortened to 15 laps after multiple red flags and cautions during the first nine laps. It marked his 30th win at Huset's Speedway.

"I just love this place," he said. "They did a heck of a job when they reworked the track. We're rolling really good right now. It was nice to get a win. Congratulations to Jacob Hughes and Lee Goos and all the competitors here this year. The 305s are obviously right there with the 410s for competition."

Lee Goos Jr., who finished second to Hughes in the championship standings, advanced from fourth to second place with a pair of passes near the midpoint of the feature. He closed within a couple of car lengths on Ballenger, who moved up the track to Goos Jr.'s preferred higher groove in the closing laps and held on to win by 0.766 seconds.

Koby Werkmeister rounded out the podium with Blaine Stegenga finishing fourth and Brandon Bosma fifth.

Andy Pake set quick time during qualifying before Bosma, Mike Moore, Brandon Halverson and John Lambertz won heat races. Cole Vanderheiden captured the B Main.

The 2022 Huset's Speedway season concludes next Saturday and Sunday with the Bull Haulers Brawl presented by Folkens Bros. Trucking. The racing action features the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association and Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig and the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series 360 sprint cars each night plus the Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks on Sunday only.

Flick Wins Battle and War at Tri-City Raceway Park; Dobrosky, Laskey, Dietz, and Maskal Also Victorious; Holiday Racing Plans Altered
(Franklin, PA August 28, 2022): A.J. Flick took the lead on lap twenty-nine of thirty in the first-ever challenge between the FAST 410 Sprint Series and the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars. That pass gave Flick enough breathing room to clinch the track championship over Jack Sodeman, Jr. despite the fact that Flick passed up on one race at Tri-City Raceway Park to compete in Central Pennsylvania.
Also taking wins were Greg Dobrosky (Allegheny Sprint Tour 305 Sprint Cars), Rod Laskey and Tyler Dietz (Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks), and Levi Maskal (4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks).
Tri-City Raceway Park announced its divisional champions at the conclusion of each class of racing. Taking top honors in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars was Flick by six over Sodeman. Kevin Hoffman topped the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds, which had the night off due to the appearance of the Allegheny Sprint Tour 305 Sprint Car Series. Teenager Tyler Wyant prevailed in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks by fourteen points over Pat Fielding. The crown in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks went to Levi Maskal, who was red hot at the start of the season. Congratulations to all competitors for a job well done and thanks to all for their support through a difficult 2022 racing season.
Tri-City Raceway Park will be in operation over the Labor Day weekend. However, the racing program has been modified. It will be a Sunday Thunder event for the track’s four regular classes. These races will not count toward the track championships. There will be no racing held on Friday or Saturday.
Sean Rayhall had the pole for the 410 Sprint Car thirty lapper run under the twin banners of the FAST 410 Series (formerly the Fremont Attica Sprint Tour) and the Shawgo Real Estate LLC Sprint Cars. Next to him was Brandon Matus, the defending Tri-City Raceway Park champion. Row two consisted of Jeremy Weaver and A.J. Flick. Brandon Spithaler came off row three, along with Nate Dussel, the FAST Series points leader. Row four paired Ricky Peterson and Carl Bowser. The fifth row had Logan McCandless and David Kalb. Bob Felmlee and Lee Jacobs departed from row six.
Brandon Matus and Flick entered turn one with the advantage, but a tangle involving Brent Matus and Nate Dussel slowed the pace and necessitated a restart. Brent Matus was able to push back off, but Dussel broke a front axle and was done for the evening.
On the second try, Brandon Matus surged ahead at the drop of the green, but Rayhall drove through the middle of the track to come off turn two with a slight lead. Taking third was Flick, ahead of Spithaler, Weaver, Bowser, Peterson, Kalb, McCandless, and Felmlee.
Flick swept past Matus on lap two but Rayhall was off and running. Rayhall maintained a comfortable lead throughout most of the race as Flick went into conservation mode. “I expected the top to get very far up and the bottom to come in, but I was too tight to run down there. In the middle of the race, I saved my tires and started to play with the wing. I would put it down when I came up on a lapped car and then I would slide it back again.”
Flick added that Tri-City was one of the places that he struggled early in his career, but now he is very comfortable here. “We’ll do all that we can to support this place.” Flick thanked track owner Merle Black and the race fans for providing a great venue for Sunday racing, He anticipates racing next Sunday if all goes well in the big holiday events being staged elsewhere in the region.
In the second half of the race, Flick began to cut into Rayhall’s lead. The critical moment came late in the contest when Rayhall slid over the cushion in turns three and four, allowing Flick to scoot by to be scored as the leader on lap twenty-nine.
Rayhall gathered things up to keep second, ahead of Brandon Spithaler. Jeremy Weaver registered a solid fourth. Brandon Matus crossed in fifth. The next six finishers were Ricky Peterson, Logan McCandless, Carl Bowser, Lee Jacobs, and Bob Felmlee. Jack Sodeman, Jr. was eleventh, which was not good enough to preserve his points lead.
Heat wins in the FAST 410 Sprint Series and Shawgo Real Estate 410 Sprint Cars went to Brandon Spithaler, Jeremy Weaver, and Brandon Matus. There was no B Main. A.J. Flick was the fastest qualifier, lapping the big half mile oval in 15.277 seconds.
In the Allegheny Sprint Tour contest for the 305 Sprint Cars, Greg Dobrosky started on the pole, with Nolan Groves as his wing man. Andy Priest and Jacob Gomola were in row two. The third row matched Shane Shook and Roman Jones. Vivian Jones started inside row four, with Jim Morris beside her. Row five had Jarrett Rosencrance and Mike Mathieson paired up. The final row belonged to John Jerich and Andy Cavanaugh.
Dobrosky got out front early and ran away from the rest of the field to score the win. Nolan Groves drove a steady race for the second spot. Veteran Andy Priest was third, ahead of Jimmy Morris, and Roman Jones. Vivian Jones was sixth, with Jacob Gomola, Jarrett Rosencrance, Shane Shook, and Andy Cavanaugh completing the top ten.
The heat races for the 305 Sprint Cars of the Allegheny Sprint Tour went to Andy Priest and Vivian Jones. There was no B Main.
The first race of the night was the make-up feature for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks. This race was carried over from a rain-shortened program on August 7. Bobby Whitling grabbed the early lead over Tyler Dietz, Joey Zambotti, Pat Fielding, and Josh Seippel. Five laps into the fray, Dietz got inside of Whitling coming through turns three and four. Dietz powered off the corner to take the lead, which he never surrendered in the remaining ten laps. Just past the halfway mark, Tyler Wyant mounted a charge to try to overtake Pat Fielding for third. However, the veteran, Fielding, held his line and prevailed over his younger foe.
At the checkers, it was Dietz scoring his second victory of the season at Tri-City Raceway Park. Whitling, Fielding, Wyant, and Charlie McMillen were in the top five. Then came Aden Boozel, Aaron Smith, Matt Bernard, Joey Zambotti, Josh Seippel, and Doug Iorio, II. Hunter Exley did not start the race.
In the regular feature for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, Aden Boozel had the pole with Bobby Whitling on the outside. Doug Iorio, II and Rod Laskey started from row two. Tyler Wyant and Russ Coyne were in row three. Pat Fielding and Charlie McMillen made up the fourth row. Matt Bernard and Ron Boardman started from row five. The sixth row had Brayden Seippel at the wheel of his father’s racer.
Laskey grabbed the early lead and held off a persistent Whitling over the course of the fifteen laps. Tyler Wyant challenged for second briefly, but settled into third. He held off Pat Fielding in the final laps to preserve his points championship. Doug Iorio, II was fifth. Sixth through tenth went to Aden Boozel, Matt Bernard, Ron Boardman, Charlie McMillen, and Brayden Seippel.
The pair of heat races for the regularly scheduled race went to Rod Laskey and Bobby Whitling.
In the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks, Levi Maskal led wire to wire to put an exclamation mark on his outstanding season at Tri-City Raceway Park Maskal started the season hotter than a firecracker. In the middle of the season, he had a bit of a lull, but he has now two out of three.
Maskal moved to the pole position when Bodey McClintock elected to start at the tail due to a steering problem. That moved Joe Campbell to the front row. D.J. Macrae and Thomas Warren were in the second row. The third row was Adam Aley and Dalton Speer. Row four matched Matt Urey with Paul Marsh, Jr. The fifth had Chad Greeley and Mike Barr, while Kevin Wice and Tyler Ellenberger made up row six.
Maskal the Rascal led the entire distance to triumph over Matt Urey, who also placed second in the championship standings. D.J. Macrae was third. Fourth went to Thomas Warren, and fifth to Adam Aley. Dalton Speer, Chad Greeley, Dillon Thorne, Tyler Ellenberger, and Kevin Wice, Jr. completed the top ten.
Heat races for the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks went to Urey and Maskal. There was no B Main.
As noted, Tri-City Raceway Park has made a schedule change for the Labor Day weekend. The three-day extravaganza will be cut back to a Sunday-only racing program. All four of the track’s normal divisions will race; however, no points will be awarded for the program. Point champions were announced in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars, the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, and the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks at the conclusion of the racing on August 28. The grounds will be open for camping for the entire weekend. There will be a bonfire on Saturday evening and all in attendance must bring their own refreshments of choice.

McMullen extends winning streak to three with Wilmot MSA triumph

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 27, 2022 – Four-time Midwest Sprint Car Association champion Brandon McMullen continued his impressive late-season charge by notching his third straight main event victory in the 25-lap Akright Auto MSA A-main presented by Adonnis Waterproofing & Foundation Repair in the MSA’s return Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis. on Saturday, Aug. 27.

With extra money on the line, including $1,000 to win courtesy of Anthony and Rachel Knierim of Adonnis Waterproofing and Foundation Repair of Caledonia, Wis., polesitter Will Gerrits of Waupun jumped into the lead on the drop of the green flag of the 25-lap MSA 360 Sprint Car headliner, as defending MSA champion Travis Arenz of Sheboygan, who started on the outside of the front row, ducked into second, followed by third starter Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum.

On lap 4, McMullen, who started eighth, worked the high groove of the third-mile clay oval to sweep past fourth starter Alex Pokorski of West Bend to assume fourth just before Tyler Davis of Franklin stalled in turn four to bring out the first of three caution flags.

Following the restart, Wenninger moved past Arenz as Gerrits bolted out to a full straightaway lead on lap 9 by holding tight to the low line. Two laps later, McMullen worked the cushion to pass Arenz for third on lap 11 before moving around Wenninger and into the runner-up spot on lap 12.

The second caution flag of the race appeared on lap 14 when Justin Erickson of Plymouth stalled at the edge of the infield in turn three. When the race resumed, Arenz ventured to the high line to edge past McMullen for second before the third and final caution flag was displayed on lap 16 for the slowing car of Blake Wondra of Fond du Lac.

McMullen dug deep to mount an impressive charge following the restart as he powered back around Arenz along the high line on lap 17 and bolted past Gerrits into the lead entering turn three on lap 18.

While McMullen flexed his muscle at the front of the field, Arenz ducked low to move past Gerrits into second on lap 23. McMullen cruised over the final two circuits to secure his third consecutive MSA main event victory of the 2022 season and his 37th career MSA A-main triumph.

“I remember in 2018 when I was driving for Bob Hood, I was leading a 410 race here and I let one get away in the closing laps,” McMullen said. “It feels good to come back to this track and get a win here tonight.”

Arenz placed second, Gerrits finished third, Alex Pokorski equaled his career-best MSA A-main finish with a fourth place showing and Tim Haddy of Waupun charged from the 15th starting spot to place fifth.

Tyler Davis won the 12-lap MSA B Main, while heat race victories went to Brandon McMullen, Katelyn Krebsbach of Cascade, Tony Wondra of Campbellsport and Alex Pokorski.

2011 MSA champion Ben Schmidt of Plymouth turned in the fastest qualifying time of the night with a lap of 13.777 seconds.

The 15th MSA 360 Sprint Car Series racing event of the 2022 campaign drew a field of 29 entrants to the Wilmot Raceway, which served as the home track of the Midwest Sprint Car Association during the 2004 season.

The MSA will return to action this Friday, Sept. 2 for the fifth annual Harry Neitzel Tribute race at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis., which will also include the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Cars and Modifieds.

Pit gates open at 3 p.m., spectator gates are set to open at 5 p.m. with warm ups at 6 p.m. and hot laps, qualifying and racing to follow with opening ceremonies slated for 7:30 p.m.

On Saturday, Sept. 3, MSA will compete during the 2022 Sheboygan County Fair as part of an all-Sprint Car program featuring the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Cars with on-track action slated to start at 5 p.m.

O'Reilly Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway

ORRVILLE - The cream rose to the top during Saturday night's last regulary scheduled Fast Five racing program at the O'Reilly Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway.
Lemoore California's Cole Macedo solidified himself as one of the favorites in next Sunday's $15,000-to-win Pete Jacobs Memorial by claiming his second Pine Tree Towing and Recovery 25-lap Sprint Car main event, and 11th overall of the season, while Ryan Markham put the exclamation point on a stellar season by claiming the 25-lap Malcuit Tavern Super Late Model feature. Markham's triumph was his sixth of the campaign at WCS while recording his seventh career track title in the processand first since 2018.
Mansfield's Kyle Moore once agin swept the 20-lap Elite Munition Modified and 15-circuit McKenzie Concrete features en route to his 27th and 28th victories of the 2022 season, while Justin Cranmore thrilled the fans with another photo finish in the JoyRide Transport 12-lap Mini Stock feature. It was Carnmore's fifth trip to WCS's victory lane. While Markham and Moore earned track titles in the Late Model and Super Stock divisions respectively, Henry Malcuit, by virtue of his season-high three victories picked up the Sprint Car track title, with Colton Shaw claiming the Modified championship to go along with four feature victories. Doug Hensel's five wins at the speedway, and 10 overall, earned him enough markers in recording the Mini Stock title.
Macedo, arguably the region's top 410 driver in the Ray Brooks Racing No. 18, grabbed the lead from early leader Chris Myers on lap nine then withstood a furious rally from Wooster's Trey Jacobs in picking up his second main event victory of the weekend following Friday night's win at Attica Raceway Park. Ricky Peterson finished third from his eighth starting spot while Tyler Street raced home fourth, his ninth top-four finish of the season. 2016 track champion Danny Mumaw rounded out the the top five after starting 11th.
"Every time we come here our car is fast and it was again tonight," said Macedo. "We struggled a little late in the feature with lapped cars. I really didn't know where they would be and it got a little dirty, too. I knew Trey was on the bottom and would make a run but we had just enough at the end."
Markham rolled to his fourth consecutive Late Model win and eighth overall 2022 triumph. Markham took the lead early from pole sitter and defending track champ Mitch Caskey, then withstood the charges of JR Gentry and hard -charging Cody Scott. Eric Wilson charged to fourth from his row five starting slot, with Chuck Kimble in tow in completing the top-five.
Brett Bee continued his recent run of top-10 peformances by racing home sixth with Nick Cox, Dustin Smith, Larry Bellman, and Tyler Evans completing the top-10.
The Mini Stocks rolled out next and the finish was nearly a carbon copy of nearly every finish of the 2022 campaign to date.
Cranmore, after starting eighth, grabbed the lead before the halfway point of the 12-lapper, but was pushed across the finish line by a high-flying Chaz Dawson from ninth, and 14th-starting Travis Hutton.
Dawson, who claimed a victory at WCS back on August 6, rode the speedway's high side and actually pulled even with Cranmore's No. 2 down the backstretch after receiving the white flag. Dawson's bid for win two on the season fell just .05 seconds short at the stripe, however, and settled for runner-up honors. Hutton claimed third with pole-sitter Dustin Bedlion and 16th-starting Wes Staley claiming fifth.
The Modifieds hit the 3-8-mile next with all eyes glued to Moore, who started on the tail after suffering mechanical issues in his heat race. While Shaw raced to a sizable advantage early, a caution bunched the field mid-race, which allowed Moore's TA Perrine 16T to methodically move to the front.
Once in front Moore cruised to his 11th Modified victory of the season and fourth staright at WCS. Shaw raced home second with veterans DJ Cline and Alan Baker third and fourth. 10th-starting Aaron Phillis rounhded out the top-five.
Moore has been nearly unstopable in the Super Stock division and Saturday was no different for the pilot of Bob Daughtery's 21D machine. Moore took an early lead from front row starters Tyler Wiles and Braden Tucke from the fourth row and cruised to his 10th WCS victory.
Tyler Wiles turned in his most impressive run of the season in claiming second, with Paul Holmes, Took Wiles, and Tucke rounding out the top-five.
The Speedway will sit idle next Saturday in preparattion for Sunday night's Pete Jacobs Memorial. Gates will open at 3, with hot laps at 6 and first race scheduled to hit the paper-clipped shaped oval at 7. The 305 RaceSaver sprints will also join the card. Clute, Texas star Aaron Ruetzel is the defending champion of the event.

Wilmot Raceway

(Wilmot, Wis., Saturday, August 27, 2022)--The 9th Annual IRA (Interstate Racing Association) Founders Night Open Wheel Spectacular saw three first time winners end up in victory lane along with a first time Wilmot Raceway season champion.
The 25-lap Founders Night IRA Feature victory went to Gibson's Danny Schlafer. "I've been coming to Wilmot a long time with my dad and now driving a 410 winged sprint car myself, and finally I put it in victory lane," said D. Schlafer, a second generation driver who was joined by his dad Al, and the family and friends, for the historic victory lane. "It means a lot to win on a night like this. I especially have to thank my Dad."
D. Schlafer jumped out in front from the front row of the main and was never headed. A complete restart was called when the red flag flew as Scott Neitzel of Beaver Dam hit the wall in turn three nearly flipping the car. Neitzel was checked out by the track medical team after walking to the ambulance.
Yellows seven, nine and 11 laps kept closing the field. The last caution flew as Jake Blackhurst of Hanna City, IL and Jeremy Schultz of Beaver Dam, who were battling for fourth place at the time, both spun in turn four.
D. Schlafer was up to the challenge each time going on to his first Wilmot win and third IRA victory. Sheboygan's Travis Arenz scored a career best second place. Blake Nimee of Oswego, IL was third. Jake Newman of New Berlin, IL took fourth. Jordan Goldesberry of Springfield, IL was fifth.
Danny Schlafer's name will be added to the perennial Founders Night Feature Winner Trophy sponsored by the Southeastern Wisconsin Auto Racing Hall of Fame with the trophy being displayed at the Hall of Fame in Hartford. Other previous winners were Scott Neitzel in 2021, Bill Balog in 2020, 2017 and 2016; Jeremy Schultz in 2019, Jake Blackhurst in 2018 and Dale Blaney in 2014 and 2015. The Founders Night is done in memory of the three individuals who originally started the IRA over 50 years ago, Whitey Harris, and the late Ray Toft and late Junior Dodd. The original home track of the IRA is Wilmot.
Goldesberry's late race charge ended up earning the 2022 Wilmot Raceway 410 Winged Sprint Car Season Championship by 3 points over Nimee. "It always means a lot to win a track championship of any kind, even though we had our struggles," said Goldesberry. "We only ended up with two full point shows here due to the weather, and ending up joining the list of previous champions at this historic place means a lot. We look forward to next year and hopefully Mother Nature will allow us to get more shows in."
Plymouth's Brandon McMullen made it three MSA 360 Sprint Car features in a row by winning his first ever at Wilmot. McMullen shot to the outside in turn two on the restart following a pair of mid-race cautions, overtaking the lead from early pacesetter Waupun's Will Gerrits eight laps from the finish. McMullen powered to the win pulling away. Sheboygan's Travis Arenz, doing double duty, matched his second place IRA feature win by getting the runner-up spot in the closing circuits of the 1/3-mile clay oval. Gerrits finished a close third. West Bend's Alex Pokorski was fourth. Waupun's Tim Haddy was fifth.
"The car has really been dialed in," said McMullen. "To get a win finally here is really great. I have to thank my crew, all of my sponsors, and the great fans who come out and support racing on the local level."
The Badger Midget 25-lap feature saw another first time winner with Derek Doerr of Watertown scoring his initial Badger and Wilmot victory. Doerr took over the lead when early pacesetter Zach Boden got caught up with a lapped car and spun in turn two bringing out a caution seven laps from the finish. Doerr maintained top spot for the win. Sun Prairie's Todd Kluever was second. Jake Neuman of New Berlin, IL, who was doing double duty and had a top five finish in the IRA sprint cars as well, finished third. Aaron Muhle of Beaver Dam was fourth. Jeff Zelinski of Joliet, IL was fifth.
"It's awesome to finally get one," said Doerr. "It feels great and to win with these great Badger drivers, it feels fantastic."
Wilmot Raceway has a pair of race nights remaining on its 2022 schedule. The Season Championship Night is next up Labor Day weekend on Saturday, September 3. The five regular Wilmot division season champions will be crowned. The closest battle is the Bandit 4-Cylinder Stock Cars as defending 2021 Champion Scott Ellis of Lake Villa, IL holds a 4-point lead 857-853 over Chris Abel of Salem. Third place 2019 Champion Ryan Johnson of Salem, is 9 points out of the lead with 848. John Cole of McHenry, IL, 2020 Champion, is within striking distance in fourth 27 points back with 830.
The Gerber Collision & Glass Modifieds has been a season long family feud as all eight feature winners have come from the Simons family. Genoa City's Mike Simons, who has 5 feature wins and is a 3-time champion, holds a 33-point lead over his younger brother, Nick Simons, 1,121-1088. Nick Simons has three feature victories this year.
Cody Erickson of Algonquin, IL in quest of his first ever track title holds a 32-point advantage, 804-772, over 3-time champion Rob Maule of Hebron, IL. With an outside shot is Kenosha's Blake Kreuser in third 41 points back 763.
The AutoMeter/Brewington Electric Wisconsin WingLESS Sprints has multiple Wilmot champion Tim Cox of Park City, IL leading 2021 Wilmot Rookie of the Year 16-year-old Clayton Rossmann of Wadsworth, IL by 55 points 1,221-1,166. Cox captured the Wilmot MRA Modified title in 1989 and the 2018 Wilmot and Wisconsin Series WingLESS Championships.
Pleasant Prairie's Mike Neau holds a 54-point lead, 666-612, over Union Grove's Andrew Kiedrowski in quest of his first ever Wilmot crown driving for his Dad, Larry Neau's Dream Chaser Racing Team in the Pfeiffer Trailer Sales IRA Lightning Sprints.
Grandstands open at 5 p.m. on September 3, with on track activity getting underway at about 5:30 p.m. and racing slated for 6:30 p.m.

HUGHES TAKES ART HILL MEMORIAL WIN; MARTIN, HENNESSY, AND BAILEY ALSO CLAIM OHSWEKEN VICTORIES

By Brent Otchere

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (August 26, 2022) – Insta-Panels presented one of the most memorable Art Hill Memorial races ever at Ohsweken Speedway on August 26; Jeremy Hughes won the 20th running of the Art Hill Memorial 42, while Liam Martin, Andrew Hennessy, and Dave Bailey won their respective A-Mains.

HRW Automotive Mini Stocks The 20th running of the Art Hill Memorial 42 featured Tristan DaSilva and Jeremy Hughes on the front row of the grid to start the 42 lap Mini Stock A-Main. By lap three Rodney Rutherford had already raced up to the lead from row three; on the other hand, Tyler Lafantaisie was having a solid run in fourth, keeping pace with the front runners. Traffic came into play on lap 21, allowing Hughes to move back into second, overtaking Fabio Oliveri. Things got worse for Oliveri as he suffered a flat right front tire and brought out the yellow flag.

The restart saw Hughes, Lafantaisie, and Rutherford almost go three-wide for the lead, putting on a great show for the fans; Hughes had just edged ahead of them as a caution came out with two laps to go. A classic green-white-checker finish would decide the winner of the race. Hughes timed the restart perfectly and inched ahead of Lafantaisie and Rutherford; Rutherford’s car suffered a mechanical problem which caused him to veer to the right and hit Lafantaisie, throwing off his momentum. Oliveri took the opportunity and passed the damaged car of Rutherford for the third spot. Hughes cruised to the checkered flag, taking the prestigious Art Hill Memorial 42 victory and the $1,000 grand prize. Lafantaisie took his war-torn car across the finish line in second, followed by Oliveri in third, Nick Erskine fourth, and Eric Yorke fifth. A 133 point lead now separates championship leader Lafantaisie from Oliveri.

Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars Josh Hansen and Jake Brown led the 24 car field to green to start the 20 lap 360 Sprint Car A-Main. Aaron Turkey went for a wild ride during the first lap as he flipped his car multiple times after clipping Jacob Dykstra; Turkey got out of his car under his own power and appeared well, but was done for the night. Hansen took the lead after the restart, holding off the two Brown brothers – Mitch and Jake. Nick Sheridan bided his time in the fourth position, while point leader Cory Turner struggled to gain ground from his starting position in row eight.

Ryan Turner briefly appeared in the top three, showing a glimmer of hope of getting his championship run back on track, however he faded a few laps later. Liam Martin made the winning pass on polesitter Hansen with two laps left to go, picking up his third win of the season. Rounding out the top five was Hansen in second, Sheridan third, Mitch Brown fourth, and Dylan Westbrook fifth. With one more full points race left in the season, Cory Turner left the night with a 33 point lead over Martin for the championship.

Dirt Late Models Brian Speelman and Gregg Haskell led the grid to get the 25 lap Late Model Open A-Main underway. An excellent turnout of 29 Dirt Late Models had fans of full-fendered action buzzing. Haskell finally got around Speelman after stalking him for five laps, and it appeared that the open engine cars were going to run away with the win until a caution came out, neutralizing the race. The crate engine-powered car of Andrew Hennessy benefitted from two restarts, and he drove into the lead after starting in row six.

Hennessy found speed in the bottom of the track, gaining a two second buffer over the pack. Charlie Sandercock, also using a crate engine, was able to obtain the second position with four laps left to go after battling Haskell for many laps. The crate engines prevailed, proving less can be more, as Hennessy crossed the finish line in first and picked up the $2,000 grand prize. Sandercock’s last outing at Ohsweken saw him win, but this time he settled for second, while Haskell finished third, Andrew Reaume fourth, and Jim Dale Jr. in fifth.

Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks Kacey Huffman and Gofast Teeple led the grid to start the 20 lap Thunder Stock A-Main. Logan Shwedyk quickly pounced on the leader after starting in the fourth position, only to have Dave Bailey take it away from him on lap seven. Bailey amazingly navigated his vehicle to the front, passing seventeen cars in the process. A quick caution saw title contender Ryan Beagle capitalize on the restart and move up to fourth.

A late caution set up a three lap dash to the finish, which saw Bailey and Trevor DeBoer duke it out for the win. Bailey came out victorious once again, picking up his seventh win of the season. DeBoer settled for second, while Beagle took the final spot on the podium in third. Rounding out the top five was Ron Loggie in fourth, and Kyle Wert in fifth. Bailey left the night leading the championship fight over Beagle by 44 points.

Shane Golobic, Dan Jinkerson and Bobby Michnowicz claim Legends Night wins at Placerville Speedway Andy Forsberg and Nick Baldwin wrap up titles

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…A packed house of enthusiastic race fans on Saturday night saw Fremont’s Shane Golobic race to his first Placerville Speedway victory of the year, while Auburn’s Andy Forsberg wrapped up his record ninth Thompson’s Winged 360 Sprint Car title at the facility.

It was a memorable night as California natives Paul and Bobby McMahan wrapped up their long-time racing careers back home where it all started. Rick Hirst also organized and led the charge in getting several names from the days gone by to take part in the festivities. It was an incredible glimpse at the history and evolution of racing at Placerville Speedway, which dates back to 1965.

Diamond Springs’ Dan Jinkerson took over sole possession of second place all-time in Pure Stock/ Super Stock wins during the night. In the end however, it was Oakley’s Nick Baldwin who locked up his fourth career Red Hawk Casino Pure Stock championship. With the BCRA vs California Lightning Sprints it was all about veteran Bobby Michnowicz, who dominated the 25-lapper. Right around 90 cars filled the pits between the Winged 360s, Pure Stocks, Lightning Sprints and Vintage Hard Tops.

The 25-lap Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged Sprint Car finale saw Fresno’s Dominic Scelzi jump into the early lead ahead of Shane Golobic and Justin Sanders, who battled for second. Caution flags slowed the pace early on, as Golobic was able to get past Scelzi for the lead following one of the restarts. Once out front, Golobic had no worries and went unchallenged over the remaining distance to pick up his first victory since early June.

It marked the 11th Winged 360 triumph at the bullring for the driver of the Matt Wood Racing/ NOS Energy Drink No. 17w. Roseville’s Colby Copeland has made limited starts at Placerville this year but continued to show that he’s one of the best at navigating the red clay. Copeland started eighth in the feature and drove up to earn his second runner up finish of the season at the track in just three appearances.

Easton’s Michael Pombo continued to impress at Placerville as well, looking very racy in the feature, before coming home third. It marked his third podium effort of the season at the quarter-mile. Three-time SCCT champ Kyle Hirst is another that hasn’t raced much this year but put together a strong run charging from 12th to fourth, while Tanner Carrick also had a solid outing, carving his way from 14th to fifth. Completing the top-10 were Scelzi, Kalib Henry, 18th starter Max Mittry, Dylan Bloomfield and Tim Kaeding.

Andy Forsberg didn’t quite have the night he may have hoped for, but an 11th place finish in the feature was good enough to secure his ninth Placerville Speedway championship. With one title under his belt this year the decorated competitor now looks to bring home the Sprint Car Challenge Tour championship with five races remaining.

A stellar field of 44 Thompson’s Winged Sprint Cars signed in for the final point race of the season on Saturday. Colfax veteran Willie Croft began the evening by touring the Placerville Speedway in 10.917 seconds to score the ADCO Driveline and Custom Exhaust Fast Time Award.

Winged Sprint Car results: 1. 17W-Shane Golobic[3]; 2. 5B-Colby Copeland[8]; 3. 98M-Michael Pombo[4]; 4. 94X-Kyle Hirst[12]; 5. 83T-Tanner Carrick[14]; 6. 41-Dominic Scelzi[1]; 7. 17-Kalib Henry[5]; 8. 2X-Max Mittry[18]; 9. 83V-Dylan Bloomfield[11]; 10. 42X-Tim Kaeding[7]; 11. 92-Andy Forsberg[10]; 12. 121-Caeden Steele[19]; 13. 93-Stephen Ingraham[16]; 14. 21M-Michael Ing[13]; 15. 4SA-Justin Sanders[2]; 16. 29-Willie Croft[6]; 17. 5H-Blake Carrick[9]; 18. 34-Andy Gregg[20]; 19. 12J-John Clark[15]; 20. 22-Ryan Bernal[17]

The final Red Hawk Casino Pure Stock main event of the year was an all out battle up front for much of the contest. Nick Baldwin, driving an unfamiliar car raced tooth and nail with Dan Jinkerson, Ryan Peter, Jason Poppert and others. The “Diamond Springs Dynamite” and Baldwin went side by side for numerous laps until Jinkerson got the traction and solidified the lead.

Jinkerson, who wrapped up the Ltd. Late Model championship two weeks prior, went on to accept the Ron Stahl checkered flag for his 37th career Pure Stock victory at the venue.

Poppert showed immense speed once again and crossed the stripe in second after starting from the fourth row. Baldwin brought home a third-place finish and locked up the Red Hawk Casino Pure Stock title. The always exciting driver tallied five wins in 2022. Rounding out the top-five in the feature were Rio Linda’s Ryan Peter and Diamond Springs’ Kevin Jinkerson.

Pure Stock results: 1. 23-Dan Jinkerson[3]; 2. 87-Jason Poppert[7]; 3. 17-Nick Baldwin[1]; 4. 83-Ryan Peter[2]; 5. 30-Kevin Jinkerson[8]; 6. 73-Kenny Bernstein[10]; 7. 93-Mel Byers[13]; 8. 52-Mike Lightfoot[5]; 9. 196-Micky Dangelo[11]; 10. 316-Ryan Murphy[4]; 11. 27-William Upton[15]; 12. 1-Chris D'angelo[12]; 13. 4-Jonny Walsh[6]; 14. 68E-Wayne Trimble[9]

Solwold Scores Skagit Win

8/27/22

Alger, WA - On a cool night at Skagit Speedway, Jason Solwold’s performance was red hot as the veteran driver won the Budweiser 360 Sprints main event. Steve Vague, Rick Smith and Roger Burt joined him as winners on the night.

Solwold and multiple time feature winner Trey Starks started side by side on the front row of the 30 lap main event, and it was Jason taking the top spot from the get go. Starks would chase Solwold early until a mechanical malfunction sidelined him on lap six. On the ensuing restark, Jason took off and quickly worked his way into slower traffic. Lane Taylor passed Jesse Schlotfeldt for second and tried to roll in on Solwold in slower traffic, but the night belonged to the veteran, as Solwold would go wire to wire for the win. Taylor and Schlotfeldt rounded out the podium. Starks set quick time on the night. Solwold won the dash, with Chase Goetz and Taylor winning the heat races.

Veteran racer Steve Vague has been competing at Skagit Speedway for nearly two decades and on Saturday night, he drove to his first win at the 3/10 mile clay oval in the Sportsman Sprint division. Vague used a lap three restart to drive past Brett McGhie for the lead and held strong the rest of the way for the win. McGhie ran second with Cory Swatzina taking home third place. Vague was also fast time on the night. Swatzina was a heat race winner, as were Malachi Gemmer and James Bundy.

Mel Decker and Rick Smith put on a show out in front of the Skagit Aggregates Modifieds main event. Decker took over the race lead on a lap seven restart, driving under Alan Grimbly for the top spot with Smith following him through into position two. Smith then dogged Decker for twelve straight laps, looking both high and low before finally getting a nose underneath him in turn two of lap 19 and powering into the lead. From there, Smith would drive on to take his fifth win of the year, with Decker running second and Blair Shoemaker driving Mel’s second car into third place. Smith also won a heat race, as did Travis Ross.

Roger Burt held the lead wire to wire in the Hornet division to take his first win in the class. Behind him, Matt Sommerville drove from last up into second place, with David Dykstra taking his hornet truck up to a third place result. Adam Hotlrop and Howard Vos won the heats.

Bryant Wiedeman Wins Night Two at Davenport Speedway with POWRi National Midgets
Belleville, IL. (8/27/22) Bryant Wiedeman would stand victorious at Davenport Speedway on Night Two to capture his second victory of 2022 with the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League running in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota to wrap up the quarter-mile Iowa weekend sweep.

Early Davenport Speedway competition with twenty-five Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League drivers entered would see Taylor Reimer start the fastest with a 14.531-second group qualifying lap as Chase McDermand, Gavin Miller, and Kyle Jones each would earn heat racing wins.

Setting the field of competitors would find high point qualifier Gavin Miller would draw an invert of four to set the feature lineup with Kyle Jones and night-one winner Chase McDermand making up the front row grid.

Going green flag feature racing would find third-starting Bryant Wiedeman use intense low-line momentum swings on the opening sequence of laps to take the early racing lead as front-row starting Jones and McDermand stayed within striking distance and while quickly gaining.

Holding off the late-surging Daum through a flurry of restarts, Wiedeman would not be denied in gaining his fifth Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget career feature victory for the defending league champion. “I knew I had to be really consistent around the bottom, those restarts scared me a little bit but I was able to capitalize well” stated a celebratory Bryant Wiedeman in the Davenport Iowa Victory Ceremony.

Advancing eight positions, Zach Daum would maintain a solid showing to finish runner-up getting by pole-sitter Zach Daum that would complete the features final podium placement. Sixth-starting Jacob Denney would finish the night fourth as Night One winner Chase McDermand rounded out the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League/Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series top-five finishers at Davenport Speedway Night Two.

Wesley Smith Wins with POWRi WAR at Central Missouri Speedway
Belleville, IL. (8/27/22) Wesley Smith would use a low-line to precision in the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League twenty-five-lap feature at Central Missouri Speedway to notch his twelfth career league feature victory smoothly.

Early on track accomplishments would witness Jack Wagner clock fast-time in hot laps with a 13.085-second-lap as Wesley Smith, Tom Curran, and Wyatt Burks would each earn a heat racing victory.

Soaring into the initial start with twenty-two competitors would find the high-point qualifier and pole-sitting Kory Schudy combat front-row companion Tom Curran into the first pair of corners with Curran gaining the early race lead in the first few laps as Schudy, Wyatt Burks, Jack Wagner, and Wesley Smith all battled in close contention for the front.

Grabbing the preferred position out front would witness Wesley Smith strike with precision by using a low-to-mid maneuver down the back straight with Schudy quickly in tow to take runner-up as well from the leading Curran.

Keeping the field of talented WAR drivers behind in a late-race restart, Wesley Smith would emerge victorious for the second time in 2022 as point-leader Kory Schudy would finish in a close runner-up positioning with Wyatt Burks clinching the final podium placement in the event.

“I had a feeling heading into the feature the track was going to be slick and tricky so it was all about getting low and out front quickly, once Schudy went high I knew I had to get into the spot, that was really the difference in the race” stated the feature winning Wesley Smith in the Warrensburg Missouri winner’s circle.

Maintaining a solid showing all night, Jack Wagner would finish fourth as rookie-of-the-year leader Steven Russell rounded out the top-five finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League feature event at Central Missouri Speedway.

Must See Racing Engine Pro Sprint Car Series

JENNERSTOWN, Pa. (Aug. 27, 2022) – Bobby Santos III may have completed an unblemished run through the Must See Racing Engine Pro Sprint Car Series on Saturday night at Jennerstown Speedway, but the bigger headline was the crowning of a new tour champion.

Ohio’s Charlie Schultz rallied from a six-point deficit entering the David D. Mateer Memorial Race at the half-mile Pennsylvania oval, overtaking Joe Liguori on the final night of the season to secure his first Must See Racing title in his sixth season competing with the traveling winged asphalt sprint car series.

It marked one of the most storybook comebacks in series history, after Schultz lost the point lead three weeks earlier due to a crash at Lorain (Ohio) Raceway Park and thought he was out of the title hunt.

“It wasn’t so much a matter of rallying the team as it was that we just don’t quit,” said Schultz, who finished third in the 30-lap feature to capture the crown. “I’m probably pretty dumb, because I should have just quit after (the crash at) Lorain. I was pretty hard on myself, but a lot of this comeback tonight was thanks to the crew I had around me.

“J.J. Henes … , Kasey Jedzrejek, Sawyer Stout and (team owner) John Reiser didn’t let me give in when, maybe, I wanted to … and I’m glad they kept pushing me because it got us here to this moment tonight,” he added. “To add my name to the elite list of champions that have won a title with Must See Racing is something that I’ll carry with me no matter what I do going forward in my racing career. It’s special.”

After celebrating atop the wing and enduring a champagne shower from an elated Reiser, Schultz made it a night to remember by surprising his longtime girlfriend, Debbie Walker, with a marriage proposal.

“Debbie and I have been together for about four and a half years, and I’ve been seriously considering asking her to marry me,” said Schultz, with a sly smile. “I want to do that tonight in front of everyone.

“We have a lot of friends watching the livestream tonight, but let me tell you … we’re bringing the party to Lorain, Ohio tomorrow and it’s going to be a big one!”

Meanwhile, Santos surged late to capture his fourth Must See Racing sprint car win in four appearances this season, using a lap-20 restart as fuel to chase down and pass race-long leader Ryan Litt.

With a sweeping, inside move entering the first turn, Santos passed Litt with 10 laps left and drove away by 5.472 seconds to earn a $3,000 payday and his second career David D. Mateer Memorial victory.

“Ryan was great; dirty air was really tough behind him and I’m not sure if we were going to have anything for him if not for the restart,” explained Santos. “I got the right yellow and it worked for us.”

Despite the elation of victory, Santos noted the bigger picture – that his thoughts were with a Jennerstown Speedway track worker who was struck on pit road while attempting to clean up a trail of fluid that had been laid down earlier in the main event.

The incident led to a 45-minute stoppage during the Must See Racing feature. The track worker was awake and alert, according to track officials, before being transported by air to a local hospital for further observation.

“Obviously, our main hope is that everyone is OK after that,” Santos said. “It was a scary ordeal, but it sounds like he’s going to be able to make a recovery and that’s the most important thing from all this.”

Prior to the stoppage, Litt led the first 19 laps of the feature uncontested and appeared to be on his way to his second win of the season. He ultimately finished a distant second to Santos in the end.

Behind Schultz, fast qualifier Mike McVetta ran fourth. Liguori, who broke a u-joint in his heat race and had to start from the tail of the feature field, got to fifth but could advance no further and fell three points shy of the 2022 title.

Liguori scored the most aggregate points during the nine races run this season, but Schultz was the beneficiary of Must See Racing’s drop rule, requiring drivers to throw out their worst night of the year.

McVetta kicked off the program by setting the fastest time in qualifying at the .522-mile, polymer-asphalt oval with a lap of 15.321 seconds (122.655 mph). It marked the second time in McVetta’s Must See Racing career that he topped the qualifying charts, as well as the first time this season.

McVetta collected a $500 bonus from American Racer Tires, in memory of David D. Mateer, for his fast qualifying effort behind the wheel of the Dick Myers Racing-prepared No. 50m sprint car.

Todd McQuillen and Litt split the pair of eight-lap heat races held prior to the title-deciding main event.

While the Must See Racing national sprint car season has concluded, three races remain for the crate-engined Must See Racing Midwest Lights Series, starting with a doubleheader weekend during the Bev Jaycox Memorial Cavalcade, Oct. 1-2 at Sandusky Speedway.

Letizia, McMullen Koenig, Kulow, Blumer triumph at Plymouth Dirt Track

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 26, 2022 –It was a night filled with firsts at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Friday, Aug. 26 as veteran Milwaukee racer Turk Letizia notched his first career WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour A-main victory on his home track, two-time track champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh moved into sole possession of first place on the all-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory list and Eric Blumer of Sun Prairie captured the first-ever Wisconsin Legends Racing Dirt Series A main contested at The Plymouth Dirt Track to highlight a full five-division racing program.

In other main event action, Elijah Koenig of Beaver Dam pocketed $1,700 for taking the victory 25-lap Next Step Insurance A main featuring an increased payout courtesy of Thomas Ott and Travis Schmidt Racing, while 2019 PDTR Grand National champion Tyler Kulow of Plymouth claimed the victory in the 25-lap Oostburg Automotive Grand National A main.

After lining up on the outside of the front row, A main, Turk Letizia outpowered polesitter Justin Ritchie of New London to lead the opening lap of the 30-lap WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour A main.

As Letizia went about setting a blistering pace at the front the field on the lightning fast, yet treacherous track surface, fifth starter Taylor Scheffler of Waukesha worked his way into third on lap 5, while perennial Dirt Kings champion and current points leader Nick Anvelink of Navarino moved up from his fifth starting spot to take fourth on lap 7.

On lap 10, the first of six caution flags was displayed when Ron Berna of Abrams spun along the front stretch. The restart produced an incident in turn two involving Brett Swedberg of Shawano and Justin Green of Sheboygan Falls to bring out the second caution period.

After switching to single-file restarts for the remainder of the race, Scheffler bolted in to sweep past Ritchie into second on lap 11 before the third caution flag was displayed when four-time PDTR Late Model champ Brad Mueller of Random Lake stopped in turn one on lap 12.

On lap 15, Scheffler ducked low to pull even with Letizia for the lead. However, Letizia fended off Scheffler’s challenge to retain the top spot, as Anvelink worked around Ritchie along the high groove to take over third.

Two more caution flags came out on lap 20 when five-time track champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland spun in turn three after contact with Sawyer Specht of Sheboygan Falls in turn three and when Bill Edler of Howards slowed along the backstretch on lap 21.

After the restart, Scheffler surged ahead of Letizia along the low line on lap 23. However, the move was erased when the sixth and final caution flag of the race was displayed later in the lap when Lukas Postl of Shawano spun in turn four.

On the restart, Letizia maintained the top spot and pulled away from Scheffler, while ninth starter Charlie Schmidt of Oostburg flexed his muscle to move into fourth on lap 24. On the final circuit, Anvelink surged past Scheffler into second. However, Letizia could not be headed as he went on to post his first career Dirt Kings Late Model tour A-main victory and his fifth career PDTR Late Model A-main triumph in his new No. 24 car, which features a throwback tribute design in memory of his late father “Diamond” Jim Letizia.

Anvelink was second, Scheffler took third, Schmidt wound up fourth and Ritchie rounded out the top five.

“I saw Taylor there a few times, but thankfully the car held on and I held on to get this victory,” Letizia said. “I’ve been trying to win one of these Dirt Kings races since 2017 and it feels good to finally get one. It was a great race. I’m so proud to put this car in victory lane with this car in my dad’s memory.’

In the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty 360 Sprint Car A main, 2008 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett grabbed the lead on the opening lap from the pole position as outside front row starter Brandon McMullen settled into second.

By lap 6, the leaders caught the rear of the field and began to weave their way through lapped traffic. On lap 8, McMullen worked lapped traffic to his advantage to bolt underneath Fassbender, who was held up behind a slower car, exiting turn two.

Once again, McMullen set a blistering pace was he skillfully maneuvered his way through thick lapped traffic throughout the remainder of the race, even going three-wide to pass a group of slower cars on one occasion.

As the laps wound down, McMullen built up a full-straightaway lead over Fassbender en route to his second straight PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main to vault into sole possession of first place on the all-time PDTR 360 Sprint A-main victory list with his 26th career A-main triumph at The Plymouth Dirt Track. The win was also McMullen’s 36th career A-main victory in Midwest Sprint Car Association competition.

Fassbender placed second, fourth starter Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum came home third, third starter Tim Haddy of Waupun placed fourth and defending PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion and current point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan charged from the 14th starting spot to place fifth in the caution-free race.

Outside front row starter Nick Schultz of Beaver Dam led the opening lap of 25-lap B Mod A main as fourth starter Elijah Koenig bolted into second from his fourth starting spot.

On lap 4, 2022 PDTR B Mod champion Andy Welter of Hartford, who started sixth, used a low move to pass third starter Geoff Jeche of Juneau. On lap 10, Koenig moved in to challenge Schultz for the top spot along the cushion as Welter slipped past Schultz to take second.

The lone caution flag appeared on lap 22 when Jason Schilling of Milwaukee stopped along the backstretch.

When the race resumed, Welter was pushing hard to pressure Koenig for the big-money victory when he spun in turn two on the second -to -last lap. Koenig held on over the final circuit to collect his third career PDTR B Mod victory, which was worth a healthy payout of $1,700.

Schultz placed second, Jeche took third, two-time PDTR B Mod champion Tim Warner of Malone took fourth after starting ninth and eighth starter Travis Schmidt of Waldo wound up fifth.

In the 20-lap Wisconsin Legends Racing Dirt Series A main, polesitter Hunter Cardinal of Richfield led the opening two laps before spinning in turn two and collecting eighth starter Parker Jones to bring out the lone caution flag of the race on lap 3.

Eric Blumer, who started sixth, inherited the lead on the restart while Mike Mueller of Waupun, who started third, and Hayden Schmuhl of Beaver Dam, who started fifth, dueled side by side for second with Schmuhl taking the spot on lap 7.

On lap 9, Schmuhl got sideways in turn two, which allowed 12th starter Austin Winkel of Sheboygan Falls and Hartland’s Jordan Miklas, who started 13th, to sneak by before engaging in a heated duel for the runner-up spot.

Miklas finally surged past Winkel into second on lap 12, while Jones charged into third on lap 17, after restarting at the rear of the field on lap 3.

Blumer cruised over the final three laps to score the victory in the first Wisconsin Legends Dirt Racing Series A-main ever contested at The Plymouth Dirt Track.

Miklas finished second, Jones placed third, Michael Weber of Marion, Iowa, who started ninth, finished fourth and seventh starter Ryan Sullivan of Waupun placed fifth.

Outside front row starter Tyler Kulow grabbed the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap Grand National A main with polesttier Steven Weber of Plymouth following in second before fourth starter Chad Espen of West Bend swept past Weber to assume the second spot on lap 6.

The first of four caution flags flew on lap 7 when Scott Kafka of Kiel spun in turn two. Following the restart, Espen moved in to challenge Kulow for the lead with 2022 PDTR Grand National champion Luke Scholten of Oostburg, who started third, trailing in third on lap 10.

Three laps later, Scholten spun in turn four to bring out the second caution flag. One lap later, Kafka spun again along the backstretch to prompt the third caution flag of the race.

When the race resumed, sixth starter Nick Schumacher of Eagle made his presence felt as he rode the high groove to challenge the low-riding Espen for second place starting on lap 15.

The fourth and final caution flag was then displayed on lap 18 when Scholten spun in turn two. Schumacher again worked the high groove on the restart and briefly pulled even with Kulow over the final two laps.

However, Kulow proved to be too strong as he rolled to his 12th career PDTR Grand National A-main victory. Schumacher had to settle for second, Espen placed third, 2018 PDTR Grand National champ Matt Loehr of Dotyville finished fourth after starting eighth and Weber rounded out the top five.

Colton See of Chilton won the 12-lap B Mod B main.

Lance Fassbender earned PDTR 360 Sprint Car overall fast qualifier honors with a lap of12.542 seconds.

The 11th full PDTR racing program of the 2022 season, which was sponsored by Hidden Dreams Livestock, drew a season-high 103 cars, including 21 Dirt Kings Tour Late Models, 24 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars, 26 B Mods. 18 Legends and 14 Grand Nationals.

Macedo dominates Attica; Shiels gets 3rd late model win in a row; Jedrzejek gets last lap 305 victory

Friday, Aug. 26, 2022

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Legendary NFL owner Al Davis coined the phrase “just win, baby” and that’s exactly what Cole Macedo is doing. Macedo dominated Friday, Aug. 26 at Attica Raceway Park, winning his 10th overall victory of 2022 and his third of the year at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speedplant on Central Ohio Farmers/Columbus Equipment Night presented by Integrity Auto and Truck Sales of Bucyrus.

Macedo, who leads the Attica points for the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints, led all 30 laps for his eighth 410 sprint win of the year (he also has a pair of 360 wins). It was his fifth career win at Attica. Macedo’s season has caught the eye of others as he got a ride for the Knoxville Nationals and this past week drove NASCAR driver Alex Bowman’s sprint car with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions before coming back to Ohio to his Ray Brooks Racing #18.

“I know I’ve said it before but we’ve been struggling a little here this year and Steven (Linder) has really been working hard and getting this thing right. I seen the 3J (Trey Jacobs) in second and I was getting a little worried because most of the races he wins are on the bottom. I was having some tough calls under the caution trying to decide what I wanted to do and finally I decided to commit to the top and make it work. I kept playing with the wing and it got me tight then free and I really didn’t know what to do. Those last eight laps I told myself it’s just a heat race….I put together some good laps and got the job done,” said Macedo beside his Fremont Auto Parts, Grant Decker Construction, Linder’s Speed Equipment, Gill Construction, CK Mechanical, ML Graphics, Catawba Island Club, Durst backed machine.

“I feel like to get to the next level you just have to win races…it’s the cure to a lot of things. Luckily we’ve been able to do that. My team is such a great team….there’s a ton of crew guys here….we have a great group of people. We have great sponsors and Ray Brooks is a great owner,” added Macedo.

It’s a huge understatement to say Devin Shiels is on a roll. The Britton, Michigan driver took the lead for good on lap four and drove away in a non-stop 25 lap Dirt Nerds Podcast/Propane.com UMP Late Model feature for his third win in a row and fifth of the season. Shiels also has five runner-up finishes at Attica…in fact his only finish other than first or second was a fifth in June. Shiels – who has three track titles including the last two in a row - now has 15 career feature wins at Attica, placing him fifth on the division’s all time win list.

“What a year…and to do this on the high side of the track. Everyone knows I’m a bottom track guy but my crew has made the changes to get me up there and it works. I was afraid I hurt my right rear tire up there but it just kept rolling. We also have a pair of wins at Oak Shade so we hope to wrap up that track championship tomorrow and keep doing what we do here,” said Shiels beside his Magic Fountain Auto Wash, Rally’s Hamburgers, Dundee Products, Banshee Graphics, Salenbein Trucking & Excavating backed #51.

On Monday Kasey Jedrzejek took the lead from Shawn Valenti at Fremont Speedway on the white flag lap and drove to his first ever sprint car win. Four days later the 17-year-old in his second year of sprint car racing, took the lead from Valenti on the last lap to score his first ever Attica win.

“We had a great car. We finished fourth last week and we thought about a couple of things we could have done to make it a little faster. We changed a couple of things this week and it paid off out there. Shawn’s been faster than us the past two nights in clean air but once we get to lapped traffic we can catch up to him and get by him. I have to thank my dad, Denny, all of our sponsors…we couldn’t do this without them,” said Jedrzejek beside his Heat Star, Mr. Heater, Fisher Custom Printing, Ronda Jedrzejek Howard Hanna Real Estate, Sips & Such Social House, BEI Supply & Rental, Greber Racing Components, FK Rod Ends, Simpson Race Products, Perfection Fabricators, Team Line Em Up, DiBaggio Family backed #5K.

Macedo battled Travis Philo for the lead on the opening lap of the 410 sprint feature. A caution early kept the field close but when the green flew again, Macedo checked out, lapping up to 12th place by the half-way point when a caution flew.

On the restart he once again pulled away to a nearly three second lead, but defending track champion Trey Jacobs took second and within two laps cut that lead in half just before a caution with eight laps to go. In clean air, Macedo pulled away to a convincing win over Philo, DJ Foos, Jacobs and Stuart Brubaker.

In the non-stop late model feature, Shiels jumped into the lead at the drop lf the green but Mike Bores snuck by to lead lap three with Shiels regaining the top spot a circuit later. Shiels quickly pulled away but with 10 laps to go former track champion Ryan Markham, who took second on lap 14, began to close and was within a car length of Shiels as they raced in lapped traffic with seven laps to go.

Shiels did not make a mistake and drove to the win over Markham, Collin Shipley, Bores and Drew Smith.

A few cautions early in the 25-lap Fremont Fence 305 Sprint A-main kept the field close with Shawn Valenti leading Jedrzejek, Jim McGrath, Kelsey Ivy, Tyler Shullick, Jamie Miller and Paul Weaver. By lap nine Valenti had pulled away to a comfortable lead over Jedrzejek while McGrath, Shullick and Weaver battled hard for third.

With 10 laps to go and in heavy lapped traffic Valenti’s front wing collapsed and the Fostoria, Ohio driver had his hands full. Jedrzejek raced under Valenti a couple of laps but once clear of traffic Valenti was able to pull away slightly.

Coming to the white flag Valenti hit the turn four cushion and made contact with the front stretch wall and that was the opening Jedrzejek needed as he drove into the lead and took the win over Valenti, Weaver, Shullick and Ivy.

Attica Raceway Park will host the traditional Attica Ambush on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 2 and 3. On Friday, the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group will battle for $5,000 to win the American Late Model Series vying for $5,000 to win and the NAPA of Bryan AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales 305 Sprints going for $1,000 to win. Saturday will see the AFCS 410 sprints go for $7,000 to win with the NRA Sprint Invader 360 sprints battling for $3,000 to win and the AFCS 305 sprints vying for $1,500 to win. In total for the weekend, there will be over $100,000 in prize money up for grabs.

Chase McDermand Claims Victory at Davenport Speedway with POWRi National Midgets
Belleville, IL. (8/26/22) Chase McDermand found the fastest line late around Davenport Speedway to capture his third victory of 2022 with the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League running in conjunction with the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota to kick off the weekend quarter-mile Iowa sweep.

Early Davenport Speedway competition with twenty-seven Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League drivers entered would see Cannon McIntosh start the fastest with a 14.229-second group qualifying lap as Jesse Love, Brenham Crouch, and Daison Pursley each would earn heat racing wins with Ethan Mitchell notching a semi-feature victory.

Setting the field of competitors would find high point qualifier Brenham Crouch would draw an invert of four to set the feature lineup with Jade Avedisian and Bryant Wiedeman in the front row.

Going green flag feature racing would find Jade Avedisian would use a low-to-mid line momentum on the opening lap to take the early racing lead as third starting Jesse Love and Bryant Weideman quickly gained with Chase McDermand and Brenham Crouch inside the top-five.

Taking the front of the field by using an extreme highline, Bryant Wiedeman would battle a low-line running Jesse Love with Chase McDermand trying to find a way around the leading pair.

Swapping the top-spot several times over several laps, Bryant Wiedeman and Jesse Love would appear to be the fastest on track until the Mounce-Stout Motorsports team would pounce at the mid-point with Jacob Denney shooting through the middle to the lead as McDermand followed into the runner-up positioning.

Restarting from a lap fifteen caution, Jacob Denney would lead McDermand, Wiedeman, Love, Crouch, and Zach Daum back to green with a caution flag quickly being displayed as Crouch, Love and Daum would all be collected in the jumbled restart.

Finding green-flag conditions displayed Denney would remain in the lead until a smooth Chase McDermand overtook for the front of the field in turns one-and-two as Jacob Denney maintained runner-up with a low-running Dominic Gorden in the mix running third.

Dashing for a two-lap finale, Chase McDermand would not be denied in gaining his third Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget feature victory of the season. “Everybody at Mounce-Stout Motorsports this one is going to be big for us all, we didn’t have the best start but the car really came into its own after that long caution” stated a celebratory Chase McDermand in the Davenport Iowa Victory Ceremony.

Dominic Gorden would maintain a solid showing to finish runner-up getting by one-time leader Jacob Denney that would complete the features podium placements. Returning to much fan-fare Daison Pursely would finish the night fourth as Gavin Miller rounded out the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League/Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series top-five finishers at Davenport Speedway Night One.

Bradley Terrell Bests Hunt Series Field During Soares Classic at Petaluma Speedway

(PETERSEN MEDIA-Petaluma, CA)- For the second time in 2022, Bradley Terrell was standing high atop his car in victory lane celebrating a Hunt Series win. Winning the season opening event at Petaluma Speedway back in March, Terrell matched that effort on Saturday night as he again picked up the win at his home track during the 11th Soares Classic.

Shawn Arriaga and Daniel Whitley led the field to green, but behind them third starting Terrell was primed for a strong night as he jumped into the lead on the race’s opening lap.

While Terrell was solid out front, Whitley settled into the second spot as he did all he could to keep pace with the early leader, however he’d feel pressure soon from Josh Young.

Terrell continued to lead the way over Whitely and Young, and Shawn Jones but behind them Shawn Jones was working his way into the fray from his eighth starting position.

In the closing laps of the feature, Young was able to make a big move to move into the second position on the 19th. While Whitley slipped back to third, the most entertaining battle of the night was the battle for third as he and Jones swapped the position in the closing lap.

Terrell went on to pick up the win as Young ran second as Jones took the final spot on the podium over Whitley and Nick Larson rounding out the Top-Five.

Saturday night a total of 32 cars checked into Petaluma Speedway and it was Shawn Arriaga earning Dependable Crane Fast Time.

Arriaga picked up the win in Benic Enterprises Heat Race No. 1, Jones won Brown and Miller Heat Race No. 2, Young won King Racing Products Heat Race No. 3, and Trey Walters was victorious in Santomauro Racing Products Heat No. 4.

Marcus Hardina picked up the Santomauro Racing Products Hard Charger by way of his charge from 13th to sixth, while Evan Gularte was the Hard Luck Award presented by Matt Streeter Racing recipient.

Finishing 15th, Heath Holdsclaw picked up the BR Motorsports P15 Award, Mark Hanson won the Arbo Tech Best Presenting Feature Car award, and Trey Walters earned the Vahlco Wheels Cool Move of the Night.

Jedrzejek gets late race pass for 1st career sprint car win at Fremont

Monday, Aug. 22, 2022

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Kasey Jedrzejek has been very close to getting his first career sprint car win this season. Many top five finishes have come along the way for the second year 305 driver, but that checkered flag has alluded him. The LaGrange, Ohio driver finally found victory lane Monday in dramatic fashion as he took the lead on the white flag lap and dodged lapped cars on a very tricky Fremont Speedway to score his first sprint car win. The victory came on Fremont Fence Night that kicked off the 170th Sandusky County Fair.

Not only was the victory emotional being his first, but for Jedrzejek those emotions were deeper as his grandmother recently passed away.

“My grandma unfortunately passed away about a week and half ago. My cousin won Friday night so I had to get it done tonight too,” said Jedrzejek beside his Heat Star, Mr. Heater, Fisher Custom Printing, Ronda Jedrzejek Howard Hanna Real Estate, Sips & Such Social House, BEI Supply & Rental, Greber Racing Components, FK Rod Ends, Simpson Race Products, Perfection Fabricators, Team Line’Em Up, the DiBaggio Family backed #5K.

“The track was just really rough out there. I almost got by Valenti (Shawn) one time there and I got really tight getting through the ruts down there. I wasn’t really sure where the fastest lane was in one and two and I was trying them both out….I’m just glad I found the right one. I have to thank everybody that works on this car…me and my dad, Denny…we put an awesome team together,” added Jedrzejek.

Jimmy McGrath jumped into the early lead of the 30-lap A-main with John Ivy, Valenti, Jamie Miller and Jedrzejek in tow. McGrath built a nearly three second lead when Bryan Sebetto took a tumble with five laps in. That kept McGrath out of very heavy traffic. On the restart Valenti and Jedrzejek battled hard for third while McGrath continued to lead Ivy.

A caution for an infield tire being moved onto the track with 11 laps scored set up Valenti to charge from third to the lead on the restart, bringing Jedrzejek into second. Valenti found his way around the ruts in turn two and built a sizeable lead until he caught the back of the field with 12 laps to go. Jedrzejek began to close and with four laps to go was right on Valenti’s rear bumper.

Jedrzejek made his move under Valenti as they raced to the white flag. Lapped cars nearly proved costly to the leader in the final two corners but he held his line and drove to the win over Valenti, a charging DJ Foos, Miller and Mike Keegan.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, Sept. 10 for the championship night for the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group for the 410 sprints and the NAPA Auto Parts of Bryan AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales for the 305 sprints with the dirt trucks also in action. The B-main make-up for the dirt trucks from the Aug. 13 rained out event will also be held.

Chase Randall Sweeps Sprint Invaders at Quincy!

(Bill W) Quincy, IL, August 21, 2022 – Chase Randall kept his roll going with the Sprint Invaders Sunday night, when he won yet again at a track he had never seen. The Waco, Texas native swept the night at the Adams County Illinois Speedway in Quincy, taking home $2,000 in the process. It was Randall’s fifth win with the series this year.

Randall and Paul Nienhiser both started in row two of the 25-lap main event, and both wasted no time heading for the front. Nienhiser captured the early lead and set his groove on the cushion of the banked 1/3-mile bullring. Randall and pole-sitter Jake Griffin followed.

The leaders were quickly in lapped traffic on the sixth circuit. Most of the lappers raced on the bottom, while the leaders sailed up high. Nienhiser got his right rear above the turn three cushion and slowed a bit. Randall pounced on the opportunity and shot past for the lead on lap eight.

Aidan Zoutte tangled with Ryan Jamison to bring a caution twelve laps in. Randall led Nienhiser, Bret Tripplett, Cody Wehrle and Griffin back to green. Wehrle snatched third and Tanner Gebhardt moved in the top five before Wignall spun in turn three to bring the final caution.

The opportunity for clean air was not lost on Randall, who stretched his lead again. Behind him, Gebhardt and Wehrle battled for third, while Steven Russell, making his Sprint Invaders 2022 debut, had worked from the seventh row into the top five.

Randall and Nienhiser reached lapped traffic again with four to go, but a late slip over the turn two berm by Nienhiser sealed his sixth second place finish of the season. Wehrle used a late push to gain third, ahead of hard-charger Russell and Gebhardt. Tripplett, Colton Fisher, Jamison, Tyler Lee and Dugan Thye rounded out the top ten. It was a tough night for Dustin Clark, who shelled a driveline in hot laps. Russell sustained contact from another car in his heat, came to a stop, and collected Austin Archdale, who got upside down. Both would return for the feature.

“We’ve seen a lot of new racetracks,” said Randall in Victory Lane. “They’ve all turned out really nice. I’ve just had a blast up here (in the Midwest) this summer. I can’t thank my Dad (Jon) enough. It wouldn’t be possible without him. It was a really good race between Paul and me there. I was searching for the best line and I kind of found it on the bottom in one and two. The track was super-technical towards the end and the cushion got way over the banking. I fell off of it a couple times. I’m just glad we hung on and it was a good race with Paul.”

“I made a couple of bad corners there,” said Nienhiser of the treacherous cushion. “I can tell you exactly where and when they were. I think they ultimately cost me the race. I sacrificed the lead there to Chase, and I knew it was going to be hard to drive back by him unless he made a mistake. We both made plenty there in the middle to the end. I just couldn’t capitalize on them. It kind of stinks a little bit. We made gains on the car all night long. When we jumped to the early lead there, I thought we had what we needed. I think this one’s a little on me.”

“Quincy is a tough place for me,” said Wehrle. “For some reason, I’ve always had a tough time running the cushion in one and two. I don’t know what it is. Our car went away quite a bit on the bottom though after that caution. Paul and Randall running the top…I thought that’s where we needed to be. I got over the cushion and it had went away. I guess that made a little excitement. I couldn’t believe how quickly the cushion went away to be honest. I thought the curb that was there was there to stay. I think if I hadn’t have gotten over there, I may have had something for them. It’s always good to get on the podium though.”

The Sprint Invaders next action will be Saturday, September 3, at the 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa. For more information on the Sprint Invaders, visit www.SprintInvaders.org or look us up on Facebook.

BARDIER TAKES FIRST ACTION SPRINT TOUR VICTORY AT BROCKVILLE; CORNWALL RAINED OUT

By Tommy Goudge with files from Tim Baltz

BROCKVILLE, Ont. (August 20, 2022) – Mathieu Bardier took his first Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s victory on Saturday night at Brockville Ontario Speedway, becoming the first Quebec driver to take an AST win in the process.

Matt Billings and Mathieu Bardier started on the front row for the 25 lap A-Main, and Bardier quickly opened a gap on the field. Billings, Luke Stewart, Lee Ladouceur and Darren Dryden made up the remainder of the top five in the early going. Bardier had a big lead when Dryden got off track in turn four to bring out the yellow flag on lap 11.

Bardier continued to lead after the restart, but Ladouceur moved past Billings for the second position and went after Bardier. Traffic became a factor with five laps to go, but Bardier would not be denied his first Action Sprint Tour victory. Ladouceur locked down the runner-up spot, while Jacob Dykstra stole the final podium spot from Stewart, and Billings rounded out the top five.

The win was Bardier’s fourth at Brockville this season, but Ryan Poole was honored at intermission as the 1000 Islands RV Crate Sprint Car track champion at Brockville for 2022.

Poole, Bardier, and other Brockville regulars will have another chance to defend home turf when the Action Sprint Tour returns to Brockville for the Trailer Pros Canada Sprint Race Weekend on Friday, September 9, and Saturday, September 10.

The Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty's event scheduled for Sunday, August 21 was rained out and will not be rescheduled. The Action Sprint Tour will next be in competition at Merrittville Speedway on Saturday, August 27. Visit www.actionsprinttour.com for more information.

Brian Brown Victorious in Missouri State Fair POWRi 410 Outlaw Finale
Belleville, IL. (8/21/22) Brian Brown would use a late-race restart to perfection for the Lucas Oil POWRi 410 Wing Outlaw Sprint League feature event at the Missouri State Fair Finale Event in the elbows-up historic half-mile main event to notch his first career series feature victory in front of a great home-state crowd.

Cruising onto the track, Ayrton Gennetten would clock quick-time with 16.937-qualifying time as heat racing action would witness Slater Helt and Kameron Key each earn an early competitional victory.

Going into the initial green flag start would see high point qualifier and pole-sitter Brian Brown battle outside front-row companion Roger Crockett into the first pair of corners as Roger Crockett would gain the early racing advantage.

Holding steady out front, Crockett would appear to be the driver to beat establishing a near five-second advantage over Brian Brown, Slater Helt, Riley Kreisel, and Ayrton Gennetten in the first half of the twenty-lap feature event.

Surging late would find pole-sitter Brian Brown solidify victory in the Lucas Oil POWRi 410-Wing Outlaw Sprint League at the Missouri State Fair Speedway by grabbing the lead with less than five laps remaining with one-time leader Roger Crockett finishing in a hard-fought runner-up placement.

Running smooth and gaining ground late would find see Ayrton Gennetten finish third with Slater Helt finishing fourth in a battle as Ben Brown rounded out the top-five finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi 410-Wing Outlaw Sprint League in the Missouri State Fair closing event.

4 kings are crowned point champions at Michaels mercer raceway.
Gabany doubles up in bb mods and crate mods; Jones (305s) and Callahan
(minis) win 2nd of season. Kornbau and Kekich wins dash for cash in 410s.

By Jim Balentine
(Mercer,Pa)

On Saturday night in Michaels Mercer Raceway completed its 9th program of the year with four drivers clinching division championships with two more on the line for next week.

Winning track championships in the 71st season are Adam Kekich(410 sprints); Jeremy Kornbau (305 sprints); Mike Kinney (BBmods); and Andy Thompson(mini stocks).

Eric Gabany doubled up tonight winning both the big block and FASTRAK crate modified features; Jeremy Kornbau and Adam Kekich picked up the pair of dashes for cash in the 410 sprints collecting $500 each; Tim Callahan won his 2nd mini stock feature of the year as did Vivian Jones in the 305 sprints.

The 410 Sprints had an interesting situation as only four cars showed up to do battle.. track management and the drivers agreed to run 2 8 lap dashes that paid $500 to win each with $400 for 2nd $300 for 3rd and $200 for 4th. In the first dash it was all Adam Kekich as he lead from the green flag to pick up the extra money.Hall of famer Tim Schaffer was 2nd, Kornbau 3rd and Andy McKisson 4th. it was a different story in the nightcapper as Jeremy Kornbau with a 410 motor under the hood battled with Kekich the entire eight lap distance side by side with Kornbau emerging victorious at the end. It would be his 1st 410 checkered flag. “I’m too old for this!!! I was so worn out!! I saw Adam and I could hear him and it was either going to stick or not going high but when Ricky Peterson was successful at it I thought I’d try it!”

3rd generation driver Adam Kekich added his name to the illustrious list of sprint car track champions Saturday night as he won the 2022 track title. A jubilant Kekich said “I have to give all glory to god!! It feels good... that title is something you don’t take for granted and it goes a long way when it comes to sponsors it’s huge and special. It’s surreal…we work hard for this we try to run as professional as we can. You have to have a good team to win and we have had a very strong year this year.”

Hometown driver Eric Gabany doubled up dominating both the big block and FASTRAK 602 crate modifieds. In the big block mods Gabany took the lead from 2022 track champion Mike Kinney and went on to win by 10.96 seconds over Kinney. Ayden Cipriano in his 1st big block race moved up 3 spots to take 3rd from Tom Glenn out of turn 4. John Venuto was 5th and Kevin Green 6th.

Mike Kinney the former emod standout in his 1st year racing big blocks capped his year with the track championship at Mercer. “I’m speechless!! our luck was so good this year my group of people are fantastic!! this place has been really nice to me this year.. there’s a lot more bite and I like the clay it’s awesome..
it’s a big change the way the car handles and the speed but we are figuring it out.”

Gabany after winning the big block hopped into the Jerry Schaffer crate modified and came from 4th to take the lead from Bill Adams on lap 7 and cruised to victory winning by 5.7 seconds over Adams. Pat Lane was 3rd, Gage Priester 4th and Caden Petry 5th. Point leader Brian Schaffer finished 7th behind 2nd place in points Jeff Schaffer jr. so it will go down to the finish next Saturday on who wins the title. A tired but happy Gabany would say “I’m hot and sweaty the car has some good speed tonight and it’s nice to win both features for Rick Ryder and Jerry Schaffer tonight!”

In the Racesaver 305 sprints it was all Tommy Jasen as he led from The start looking to win his third career feature but after he took the white flag in turn one he lost his steering and hit the turn one wall flipping as high as the top of the catch fence going over several times and landing on his side. He was uninjured. This put Vivian Jones in the lead for a one lap shootout with James Pattock and Jake Gomola in tow but Vivian held her ground and picked up her 2nd career 305 sprint win. At the checkered John Jerich smacked the 4th turn wall flipping several times. He was also uninjured. Pattock would hold off Gomola for a career best 2nd.
“It feels great even though it was Tommy’s race .. I hit the wall in turn 4 at the start of the heat and had to swap the entire front end …we have been there every week!! I’d like to move up full time to the 410s next year!”

Jeremy Kornbau would finish 4th and had enough points to clinch the title by just 25 points as with the win. Jones moved into 2nd place and Gomola dropped to 3rd in the final tally.
“I never thought I would see the day!!!it’s been a long time coming!! I would have been happy with just that 1st win. Gary Edwards helped out a struggling driver and got me where I am today. Now I have to write a longer speech for the banquet!”

The mini stocks went down to the wire once again as Tim Callahan led from flag to flag to take the win. 2022 track champion Andy Thompson would start last due to winning 3 weeks in a row and would move up to 9th in one lap. Behind Callahan a torrid battle between Adam and Will Aley, and Randy Ealy would go on lap after lap. Thompson would make some noise going to his traditional outside line passing cars to get to 5th on lap 5 and challenging the trio. One caution would bunch up the field but Callahan would win by 1.45 seconds over Adam Aley, Will Aley, Randy Ealy and Thompson who secured his 2nd mini stock title in a row. Callahan would say “I was so hoping we would roll through this I didn’t want that caution but it all worked out!”

Next will be the final night of points for the big block modifieds, fastrak 602/crate modifieds and the mini stocks with a special appearance of the crate late models paying 1000 to win and the Penn/Ohio pro stocks in a series race paying $1500 to win.

Alex Bright Makes History with Victory in USAC Debut at Clinton County Speedway

Mill Hall, PA – The USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars made their first ever visit to the Clinton County Speedway on Friday night. Collegeville’s Alex Bright topped the field of 24 cars to claim the $2,000 to win prize. Corey Stabley won his first career 270 Micro Sprint feature event. Travis McClelland won his third Central PA Legends event at the speedway, while Hunter Flook was the winner of the 4 Cylinders.

Colin White and Aidan Borden brought the full field of USAC Wingless Sprints to the start of the 25 lap feature event. Third place starter, Mark Smith made a move to the front to lead the first circuit over White and Borden. By lap number two, Joey Amantea took over the second position. Amantea and Smith battled for the lead with Amantea edging Smith at the line to lead lap number four, while several cars were battling two and three wide for postion throughout the entire field. Alex Bright, who started seventh, Briggs Danner, who started seventh, and Steven Drevicki, who started eight started to work their way towards the front of the field.

On lap number six, the yellow came out for Smith. Amantea prepared for the restart with Mike Thompson, Bright, Drevicki, Danner, and Williamsport’s Tyler Cochran in the top five. While cars were pulling slide jobs and running two and three wide, Bright found the top side of turns one and two to be well suited for his car. He took over second on lap number seven and passed Amantea for the lead by the completion of lap number 10. Drevicki caught Amantea and moved into the runner up postion at the races halfway point. Danner took over the third spot on lap number 18. On lap number 21, Bright started to encounter lapped traffic. Drevicki tried to use lapped traffic to his advantage to catch Bright, but Bright managed to clear a few lapped cars to put some space between him and Drevicki. Bright claimed the win over Drevicki, Danner, Tyler Cochran who took fourth on the final lap with Amantea settling for fifth. Sixth through tenth were: Mike Thompson, Josh Beamer, Ed Aikin, Colin White and Bruce Buckwalter Jr. Heat races were won by Mark Smith, Amantea, and Drevicki.

Mac Wert and Corey Stabley started on the front row of the 270 Micro Sprint feature. Wert lead the opening lap with Stabley making a pass as the duo exited turn number two to lead the next lap. By lap five Stabley began to pull away from the field while Cody Siegel batted with Jeffrey Weaver, Bryden Spencer and Tyler Clowes for the top five. By lap number 9, Stabley began to encounter lapped traffic. As Stabley opened up a half of straight of way lead over Siegel, Weaver was trying to take the runner up postion. Stabley had a comfortable lead and was ready to pick up his first career win. Weaver passed Siegel with two laps remaining. Then on the final lap, the caution flagged waved for Mathew Dixon who stopped on the speedway. Stabley had to restart the race with Weaver on his back bumper. Stabley executed a flawless restart to hold off Weaver for his first career victory. Weaver finished second with Siegel, Spencer and Clowes completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Wert, Timmy Bittner, Logan Hammaker, Tom Quiggle and Matt Dixson. Heat races were won by Weaver and Siegel.

Chris Transeau led the opening laps of the Central PA Legends main event. Transeau and Devin Freese were battling for the lead, when the two cars tangled, causing Transeau to stop on the track and bring out the caution on lap number four. On the restart, Freese’s car came to a stop in turn number four, as obviously mechanical issues prevailed from the incident with Transeau. That gave the lead to Travis McClelland who had won the two pervious events at the speedway. McClelland pulled away from the rest of the field, as Bob Stough and Quinn Trimmer moved their way towards the front of the field. At the halfway point, Trimmer, who started 15th broke into the top five. A few laps later Stough and Trimmer were up to second and third. The win was the third for McClelland, who swept the 3 race series at Clinton County. Stough was second, Trimmer was third, Choya Young was fourth and Justin Wagaman was fifth. Sixth through tenth were Rick Hartwig, Cory Phillips, Scott Musselman, Eric Hurst and Richie Dobson. Heat races were won by Scott Houdeshell and Devin Friese.

Pole-sitter Michael Barrett led the opening laps of the Four Cylinder 12 lap feature. By lap number four, Hunter Flook, who started fifth took the lead. Andrew Ricketts moved into second. By lap number five, Flook was leading Ricketts, Michael Unger, Kyler Stahl and Barrett. Stahl moved into third at the halfway mark. On the final lap, Stahl passed Ricketts for second. Flook claimed this sixth win of the season. Second through tenth were Stahl, Unger, Ricketts, Bryun Hackenberg, Anthony Potter, Barrett, Matt Weaver, Eric Brumbaugh and Adam Harris.

Dominic Scelzi adds the Johnny Key Classic to growing resume on Saturday night

By Gary Thomas

Watsonville, CA…Dominic Scelzi has been racking up the wins over the last few seasons and on Saturday night he added another one with historical significance, by claiming the SCCT vs Ocean Sprints sanctioned 62nd Johnny Key Classic.

It marked Scelzi’s second triumph of the year at Ocean Speedway and the sixth of his career with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards. It moves him into sole possession of second place on the all-time SCCT win list.

“It feels really nice to get back up here in victory lane tonight,” commented Scelzi. “A lot of great drivers over the years have won the Johnny Key Classic so it’s special to add my name to that list. Last year I ran second to Shane Golobic at this race and tonight the roles were reversed. I have to thank my entire team, all our sponsors and my family for their support. My parents were able to make it tonight so I’m glad we could get a win for them.”

After bringing home the High Sierra Industries/ Gizdich Ranch Dash Scelzi jumped into the lead at the waving of the green flag in the 35-lap contest. He held command until lapped traffic gave Justin Sanders a shot to close to the gap. The Aromas driver charged to his inside with six laps complete, but Scelzi was able to fend off the challenge. A lap nine restart then saw Fremont’s Shane Golobic slide in front of Sanders to snag the runner up position.

Scelzi hit his marks out front and held command until a restart with 12-circuits left gave Golobic a shot. When the green flag waved for the final time Golobic drove it deep into turn one and sliced his way ahead, however, Scelzi executed the cross over move to retake the top spot that he would never relinquish. The driver of the Scelzi Ent./ Red Rose Transportation No. 41 machine went on to accept the Ed Entz checkered flag for the victory.

Golobic crossed the stripe in second to record his fifth podium finish of the season with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour, while Hanford’s Mitchell Faccinto scored third to earn his first SCCT podium of the year. Sanders and 12th starting Bud Kaeding rounded out the top-five. Completing the top-10 were Joel Myers Jr., 13th starting Ryan Bernal, DJ Netto, 17th starter Joey Ancona and Ryan Robinson. Rickey Sanders claimed the Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Award with a drive from 23rd to 13th.

Gilroy’s Kurt Nelson wrapped up his first career Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo championship during the night. Nelson has long been one of the top supporters of Ocean Speedway, having missed only one race since 2007 at the venue. Joe Gallaher also wrapped up the Hobby Stock title at the track, as Sam Kennedy picked up the victory in the feature. Justin Crockett won the Tri-State Pro Stock main event held at the event.

A total of 41 Winged Sprint Cars competed at the 62nd running of the Johnny Key Classic. Scelzi began the night by setting the Bianchi Farms Fast Time with a lap of 11.486 around the quarter mile.

The Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards returns to action on Wednesday September 7th at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico. The Pacific Sprint Cup Invitational will launch the 68th annual Gold Cup Race of Champions week at the famed bullring.

Greek Shakes Bad Luck To Become 75th Different CRSA Winner, Wins At Thunder Mountain

Race Report by Steven Ovens – August 20th, 2022

(CENTER LISLE, NY) – Oneonta, NY pilot Ronnie Greek branched out on his own with a car fielded by his own race team for 2022. To say that this new venture has been a struggle would be a massive understatement.

The team chased what they thought was a fuel system issue for several races, only to discover an electrical issue was what ailed his Amish Barn Company No. 28. Then last week at Afton Motorsports Park, Greek’s Midtel, Cricket Keto Realty mount went barrel-rolling through Turn 4 in a heat race. Drivers from no less than five teams pieced Greek’s ride back together just to make the feature.

Needless to say, Greek was due for a good run and it was Thunder Mountain Speedway who finally showed his team the light at the end of the tunnel of bad luck. Greek dominated his heat race and would draw the pole position for the 25-lap A-Main on Midstate Basement Authorities Night.

With championship contender Dalton Herrick drawing the runner-up starting spot, at a track he has won four-in-a-row at one point, Greek’s task looked tall. But for twenty-five laps, Greek put all the bad luck behind him and kept Herrick at arm’s reach away to score his first career Super Gen Products CRSA Sprints victory.

Greek added his name on the list of now 75 different CRSA Sprints A-Main winners in series history. He is the second-straight first-time winner at Thunder Mountain and is now one of five different drivers in series history to score their series first on the mountain at the Spoonhower promoted facility.

Herrick may not have scored another Thunder Mountain victory, but he did take a large bite out of Jordan Hutton’s points lead. The McDonough, NY driver gained points in the heat race and A-Main to narrow his deficit to Hutton to a mere 3 points, heading to a track nobody currently on tour has notes for at Skyline.

Peter Dance got his first tour victory at Thunder Mountain in July and came back to this track with a renewed confidence. Dance had a solid night bringing home a podium finish. Chad Miller brought his No. 88c home in fourth with Afton Motorsports Park winner from eight days prior, Dana Wagner, completing the top five.

Jordan Hutton passed six cars to come from his twelfth starting spot to finish sixth and earn the Powdertech Powdercoating Hard Charger of the Race. He would also earn $25 from the Maguire Family of Dealerships “Maguire Magnificent Move of the Race”. Eagle Enterprises $25 Heat Wins went to Trevor Years and Ronnie Greek. With Midstate Basement Authorities in the house on Saturday night, Greene, NY driver Calvin Wheelock was awarded $25 for the “Midstate Out of the Basement Award”.

The CRSA Sprints will now head to a highly anticipated return to Skyline Raceway Motorsports Park for the first time in ten years and only the second time in CRSA Sprints history on Saturday September 10.

The CRSA 305 Sprints are powered by Super Gen Products with their Champion Power Equipment located in Newark, NY. Associate sponsors for 2022 include A-Verdi Storage Containers, Midstate Basement Authorities, CNY Farm Supply, the Maguire Family of Dealerships, Powdertech Powdercoating, Pit Stop Convenience Stores, PJC Sprayfoam, Profab Enterprises, Eagle Enterprises, Bonnell’s Rod Shop, DisBatch Brewing Company, Magsarus Ignitions, Hoosier Racing Tire, Insinger Performance with their Stinger Race Fuel, My Race Pass and is owned and operated by Mike Emhof Motorsports.

Wilmot Raceway

(Wilmot, Wis., Saturday, August 20, 2022)--Jordan Goldesberry of Springfield, IL scored a late race victory in the 36-lap Annual Roger Iles Tribute presented by Carriage Auto Body of Waukegan, IL Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association (IRA) Winged 410 Outlaw Sprints feature highlighting the Saturday, August 20 Kenosha County Fair program.
Goldesberry's third Wilmot victory of his career came as he overtook race leader Jake Blackhurst of Hanna City, IL on a restart following a caution with six laps to go. Beaver Dam's Scott Neitzel worked his way through the field from 12th starting spot to end up second. Blackhurst, who took the lead from early race pacesetter Blake Nimee of Oswego, IL eight laps into the feature, ended up with the final podium spot in third. Sheboygan's Scotty Thiel, who started 18th in the 26-car feature field, finished strong in fourth. Beaver Dam's Jeremy Schultz was fifth.
"Jake(Blackhurst) was strong and I knew I had one shot on the restart coming out of turn four," Goldesberry said. "It's always special to win this race in front of the fair crowd."
Roger Iles founded Carriage Auto Body which is run by his son, Ken, following his dad's passing several years ago. Ken has continued the fair special for the IRA Winged Sprints.
Kansasville's Ryan Marshall won his second 20-lap AutoMeter/Brewington Electric Wisconsin WingLESS Sprints feature of the season leading flag to flag in the 5th Annual Bill Grogan Memorial. An early race caution four laps into the main kept the field tight. Marshall began working lapped traffic as the laps wound down with back to back late yellows coming with three and two laps to go. Marshall was up to the challenge holding off Oconomowoc's Ryan Zielski was took second. Tim Cox of Park City, IL was third. Allen Hafford of Beach Park, IL, who coordinated the special in memory of a long time supporter of many drivers and Wilmot, ended up fourth. Racine's Derek Crane was fifth.
"I was able to make my car run the bottom, so I stuck with it," said Marshall. "I have to thank my car owners, the Boyds, my family, sponsors, and all of these great fans who come out and watch us which allows us to have fun and do what we like to do."
Marshall is in contention for the Wilmot championship which will be decided on Labor Day weekend, Saturday, September 3. "It's not over until it's over, so we'll just see what happens on Labor Day weekend," said Marshall, who won the overall Wisconsin WingLESS title in 2021, but has not won a Wilmot track championship.
Pleasant Prairie's Mike Neau captured his third 20-lap Pfeiffer Trailer Sales IRA Lightning Sprints feature at Wilmot and second in a row. Franksville's Derek Fortier took the initial lead keeping it until lap three. Tom Brown of Ceresco, Nebraska, who comes to Wilmot traditionally for the fair race, took the lead from Fortier. Brown kept the front and appeared headed for a possible win until the only caution of the event came with 8 laps to go.
Neau went from third to second on the restart passing his teammate Oak Creek's Mark Heinert. Two laps later Neau powered past Brown coming out of turn four going on to the win. Brown held on to second. Heinert was third. Union Grove's Andrew Kiedrowski was fourth. C.J. Malueg of Johnsburg, IL fifth.
"The car just stuck and I went for it. Tom ran great and it's fun to race him," said Neau of his winning move, joined in victory lane by his wife, Sarah, his dad, Larry, and both of his young sons, Carter and Grady. "It's great because it seems when my family is here, something goes wrong. They were all here so this is special and means a lot."
The 2022 season is winding down for Wilmot Raceway. Three nights remain beginning with an all open wheel special on Saturday, August 27. The Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw 410 Winged Sprints highlight the program. That will feature the crowning of the Wilmot Raceway 410 Winged Sprint Car Champion for the year.

Macedo and Brandt Victorious During AGCO Jackson Nationals Finale

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (Aug. 20, 2022) - Carson Macedo was not going to be denied on Saturday night during the 44th annual AGCO Jackson Nationals hosted by Jackson Motorplex.

Macedo was leading the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series preliminary feature earlier in the day, but a last-lap pass dropped him to a runner-up result. Approximately seven hours later he left no doubt, leading the final 19 laps of the 35-lap feature to garner the $25,000 top prize. The margin of victory was 2.757 seconds and only four drivers finished within 10 seconds of Macedo.

"Man, it stung earlier, but that felt good," he said after scoring his second career World of Outlaws victory at Jackson Motorplex. "A little bit of redemption on the one that counts. This one pays a little bit more money. We're pretty happy about that."

Macedo methodically moved forward from his eighth starting position, advancing to third place on Lap 8 and into second place on Lap 9. He then tracked down polesitter Jacob Allen in traffic.

The duo swapped the lead twice on Lap 16 with Allen officially staying in front as they crossed the line, but Macedo took the top spot for good on the ensuing lap. Allen stayed close and pulled even with Macedo on Lap 20 before Macedo pulled away during the final dozen laps.

"I knew once I charged that hard on Brad (Sweet) and was able to get by him and then very quickly get by (James) McFadden that I was really good," Macedo said. "I paced Jacob. I thought he was extremely good as well. I kept seeing him to my inside. I was just trying to make smart decisions. I was trying to make smart decisions in the first race earlier today, too, and sometimes it doesn't work out.

"They did an incredible job there with the track prep. I thought it was amazing. There was two lanes, very, very wide, top, bottom. You could go anywhere to pass lapped cars. Hats off to Tod Quiring and the whole track crew. They did a great job."

Allen's second-place showing marked his second podium of the day at Jackson Motorplex.

"I felt like the bottom on the start of the race was good down in one and two," he said after leading the first 16 laps. "It just seems like this track gets around the top in one and two. I just tried to get that pace going there. I felt my pace was really good, but I just lost the race. That's the way it goes."

David Gravel posted a third-place result thanks to a mid-race charge.

"I felt we had a pretty good car," he said. "Jacob moved up at the right time and really got me in dirty air and was able to have (McFadden) pass me. I hit the berm on the restart and lost two spots and fell back to fifth. I battled Brad for most of the race. I think at the end we had just as good of a car as anybody, but a little too late."

McFadden placed fourth and Spencer Bayston was fifth.

Allen set quick time during qualifying to kick off the competition before Tim Kaeding, McFadden, Noah Gass and Brian Brown each won a heat race. Allen captured the King of the Hill with Sheldon Haudenschild winning the Last Chance Showdown. Haudenschild was also the Hard Charger Award winner after maneuvering from 21st to 10 th in the main event.

Macedo wasn't the only driver to deliver a dominating victory on Saturday evening. Scott Brandt led all but the opening lap of the 20-lap PIRTEK Upper Midwest Renegades Sprint Car Series feature.

Jake Kouba rallied from seventh into the runner-up position within the first six laps. He focused on the top groove while Brandt hugged the bottom lane, maintaining a lead of approximately one and a half seconds before Kouba made up ground in the closing laps to finish second by only 0.948 seconds.

Jon Lewerer, who led the first lap of the race, rounded out the podium. Johnny Parsons III finished fourth and Mike Mueller ended fifth.

Brandt and Kouba were the heat race winners.

 Winger Tops ULMS Lates; Krummert , Shetler & Schneider Find Victory Lane

Sarver, PA (August 19, 2022) With chamber of commerce weather surrounding Don Martin's Lernerville Speedway on Friday night, the Fab4 divisions returned to action, and the sizable crowd on hand were treated to four action packed feature events on a fast and smooth racing surface with a plump cushion. The inaugural Ken Schaltenbrand Sr. Memorial featuring the ULMS Late Models took center stage and did not disappoint as 32 drivers assembled to do battle for the $4,000 top prize and a seemingly endless amount of contingency awards and lap money in honor of the late driver who graced The Action Track years ago. While there were only show up points available for the Precise Racing Products Late Model drivers on Friday night, drivers in the other three regular divisions were laser focused on positioning themselves better in the season points standings which come to a close next Friday night.

Georgia's Ashton Winger came north for the first of a trio of races on the weekend, coming in fresh off a weekend that saw him capture a $10,000 check at Talledega Short Track last Saturday night, and was looking to keep that momentum rolling as he started the 30-lap Ken Schaltenbrand Sr. Memorial race. However, Sarver's Michael Norris had other ideas at the outset of the night and brought the field to the green flag as the pole sitter flanked by Chub Frank to his outside. After a caution on the initial start for Dan Angelicchio, Norris quickly set out to put the field as far behind him as possible while behind him, Frank, Winger, Dave Hess and Alex Ferree made up a formidable chase pack. Following a lap three restart, Ferree quickly moved to the third spot behind Norris and Winger with Norris setting a blistering pace while using the top side of the speedway. With 23 laps remaining, the yellow flag waved for Daryl Charlier and on the ensuing restart, Winger tested Norris with a slide job attempt that came up just short. The lead for Norris was short lived though as Winger found his way around him for good with a pass on the backstretch on lap 19 after the two drivers had thrilled fans with a series of traded slide jobs that saw the lead exchanged on the same lap between the two.

Behind the battle up front, veteran pilot Matt Lux had been making steady progress towards the front from his ninth starting spot to fifth while Ferree took advantage of Norris bobbling on the cushion to take the second spot while Frank moved into third. Gary Lyle spun on lap 14 to bring out the yellow flag, giving Ferree and Frank and Norris a chance to reclaim the top spot. The restart saw Lux get a great jump to move into the third spot while Ferree fell back to fifth. Norris gave it one final attempt to retake the lead just moments later but was unable to find enough momentum to make the slide jobs stick before going off the top of turns one and two with four laps to go. Ferree made it back towards the front on the restart, nearly taking second away from Lux before the checkered flag fell, but out front it was all Winger who posted his second straight victory in less than a week for the Big Frog Motorsports team.

"I've watched races here my entire life, there's a lot of awesome people that have won here," Winger said in Terry Bowser `Excavating Victory Lane. "Our car was really good. I think Mike was a little better than me early, he could round that cushion really well. I knew I was going to have to wait and be patient and then that top thinned out a little bit and I then I kind of found a line in three where I could hold the race track and keep to him and I knew if I could get out front I could hold the lead and block and protect."

2020 Diehl Automotive Big Block Modified champion Garrett Krummert had found victory lane twice at Lernerville in 2022, with both wins coming from the RUSH Sportsman Modified. However, he had yet to taste a feature win with his regular Friday night division despite being one of the fastest cars on the track week in and week out. On Friday night, Krummert left no doubt as to who had the fastest hot rod in the Diehl Automotive Big Block Modified main event.

Eight time track champion Brian Swartzlander wasted no time in taking the early lead while behind him, polesitter Dave Murdick and the fourth starting Krummert took up positions two and three in the early going. Making his way forward from his ninth starting spot was Rex King Jr. who would make his way around points leader Jeremiah Shingledecker, Rick Regalski and Chas Wolbert to join the front pack after the halfway mark of the 25-lap main event. Meanwhile, Krummert managed to find his way around Murdick and set his sights on Swartzlander, chipping away at the lead with each lap until lap 12 when he used the top side of the surface to pull around the race leader down the back stretch. Swartzlander did not go away quietly, making several attempts to retake the lead, but couldn't find enough momentum on the bottom to make his way back around. He did get new life with eight laps to go as Colton Walters brought out the yellow flag, however Krummert was simply too strong, and kept the lead. King Jr. was able to work all the way up to the second spot, passing Murdick who had worked his way around Swartzlander in the late going, nearly challenging Krummert for the win in the final set of turns.

"We were just trying to win a race," Krummert said. "We weren't even thinking about the points. We've been off a little bit here the last few weeks but I think we've got rolling here a little bit.

Nearly two years ago to the day, Dan Shetler found himself in victory lane after the Peoples Natural Gas Sprint Car main event, and the time in between those two years has been challenging for the veteran pilot from Johnstown, PA with a good many ups and downs. He had been coming ever so close to striking paydirt in the prior weeks, but on Friday night, following an amazing battle with Brandon Matus, he came out on top in satisfying fashion to the delight of the crowd on hand.

Matus and Shetler led the field to the initial green flag, Matus bolted as if he'd been shot out of a cannon into the lead while behind him with Shetler and Jack Sodeman Jr. in positions two and three respectively. The action slowed with three laps in the books as Bill Kiley slowed to a stop and when action resumed, Shetler twice tried to wrest the lead away from Matus and his second attempt made it happen. Another caution with five laps down set the stage for Shetler and Matus to resume their battle as Matus took the lead back with 16 laps left. Behind them, Jeremy Weaver ,Darin Gallagher, and Brandon Spithaler made up the chase pack. At the halfway point, Matus began stretching his lead while Gallagher had just about made it to Shetler's tail tank while Spithaler began sizing up Gallagher for a pass.

All action stopped with 11 laps remaining when Sodeman went end over end beyond turns one and two, bringing out the red flag. Sodeman was able to walk to the ambulance under his own power and on the ensuing restart, Shetler made his way back around Matus using the top side of the speedway while Spithaler was able to put Gallagher in his rear view, taking the third spot. Out front, Shetler began putting distance between himself and Matus, a trend which continued until he crossed first under the checkered flag by 1.22 seconds.

"It's been too long, but we'll take it," Shetler remarked. "It was a fun race. Always a lot of trust with Brandon, he pretty much showed me I was driving a little too cautious when he blew my doors off and I wasn't letting that happen twice. I had a bad year last year, all we did was tear up cars and Allen Pryde trusted me, putting me back in his car and we've been having fun and learning a lot. This car's been getting faster every week and I can't thank him enough for believing in me even when I didn't believe in myself."

Jake Dietz and Jason Fosnaught brought the Millerstown Pic-A-Part Pro Stock main event to the green flag as Fosnaught took the early lead. Just one lap in, Dietz uncharacteristically spun in front of the field in turn four, with Dale Tuche and Mike Bordt making contact. Just missing the jingle was six-time track champion Corey McPherson who was making just his second start of 2022. The caution moved McPherson up to the second spot and when action resumed, McPherson rocketed around both Fosnaught and Joey Zambotti at once on the backstretch to take the lead. McPherson started getting some gap on the field once in the lead as the pack behind him consisting of points leader Tyler Dietz, Zambotti, Fosnaught and Chris Schneider began mixing it up furiously for positions two through five with four laps in the books. Using the bottom of the speedway, Dietz firmed up his grip on the second position until lap seven when Schneider went past everyone, including race leader McPherson, to the front of the pack. McPherson headed for the pits after suffering some engine trouble. Once out front, Schneider cruised to his fourth victory of the season with Dietz and Zambotti rounding out the podium.

"There's a middle groove that's out there that I've never found before," Schneider said. "The right rear stuck right in that little groove and she just worked perfectly. "

Racing returns next Friday (August 26) as we present our annual Championship Night as well as our Autism Awareness Night. Stay tuned to our social media channels on facebook and twitter for the latest updates and event night details as well as our official website at Lernerville.com.

Schuchart Passes Macedo on Last Lap to Earn AGCO Jackson Nationals Preliminary Triumph

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (Aug. 20, 2022) - Logan Schuchart executed a last-lap pass to secure a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series victory at Jackson Motorplex for the third straight season on Saturday afternoon.

Mother Nature hampered the two preliminary nights of the 44th annual AGCO Jackson Nationals, forcing Friday's race to be run in the middle of the day on Saturday. While track conditions are always a concern for day races, Schuchart and Carson Macedo put on a show in a thrilling 25-lap A Main.

Schuchart rocketed to the top spot on the opening lap and maintained the lead while utilizing the top groove despite five cautions during the first two thirds of the race. Macedo found rubber at the bottom of the track to make the pass for the lead on Lap 17.

"As soon as I saw Carson to the inside of me on the restart I knew there was rubber down there," Schuchart said. "I just felt like I was a sitting duck. I felt here goes another one where you're leading and just have no idea where to go as the leader. Rubber is one of them things it's good to be running about fourth or fifth sometimes. If you're the first one to feel it you're able to pass all those guys pretty darn quick."

Schuchart remained within striking distance throughout the final eight laps. As Macedo primarily hit his marks on the bottom lane, Schuchart focused his effort toward the middle to top of the track.

"I just tried to run somewhere else on the race track, really run it into one and two as hard as I could," he said. "I got to three and four a few times and went to the bottom. I knew I wasn't going to get anything on him there. Carson is too smart to mess up. I just raced aggressive the last couple of laps. I was able to get a run on him in one and two and kind of block my line in three and four."

Schuchart was on the rear bumper of Macedo as the white flag was waved. Macedo went to the bottom entering turn one while attempting to lap a driver. Schuchart sailed it in on the top and was able to reclaim the lead before exiting the corners. He then dove low entering turn three to secure the position en route to his fourth career World of Outlaws win at Jackson Motorplex.

"I'm just glad we were able to get one back," he said. "He drives a great race. It's nice to steal one back from them.

"We're going to get a different race track tonight. It's so much better when you show up to a track and you feel like you have good notes and a car that's underneath of you. I definitely feel like we have the car to beat and the driver has just got to do his job. We'll keep it up and try to go after this big one later on."

Macedo finished second - only 0.435 seconds behind Schuchart.

"I was running the bottom right in the rubber," he said. "I could hear Logan at times, but I felt like I was so locked down in the rubber that I was making pretty good laps down there. If I would have moved out of the rubber and got to the top and then he'd have drove by me in the rubber on the bottom I'd have been an idiot, too. I had a car to win. Out in open air there I kinda just had to pace because I was nervous dragging my left rear and using up tires and stuff like that. I feel like we were good enough; he just did a good enough job."

Jacob Allen rounded out the podium.

"I feel pretty good," he said. "Obviously starting on the pole you want to win, but if anyone else is going to win obviously I want it to be Logan. That looked exciting for Logan for sure. My car was great all day; just had a bad start and I ended up third."

Donny Schatz placed fourth and Sheldon Haudenschild finished fifth.

Macedo kicked off the program by establishing a new track record during qualifying as he and Brian Brown were quickest in their qualifying groups. Macedo, Giovanni Scelzi, Schuchart and Allen were the heat race winners. Allen captured the dash and Spencer Bayston won the Last Chance Showdown.

The 44th annual AGCO Jackson Nationals concludes Saturday night as the action features the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and the Upper Midwest Renegades Sprint Car Series. It is scheduled to begin with hot laps at approximately 7:30 p.m.

Bud Kaeding wins a thrilling Key Kick-Off Race on Friday at Ocean Speedway

Watsonville, CA…The Ocean Speedway in Watsonville provided several thrills on Friday night at the Key Kick-Off Race. In the end it was an epic finish between Bud Kaeding, Caeden Steele and Dominic Scelzi that got fans up on their feet during the Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo feature.

Racing through heavy duty lapped traffic Kaeding got to the outside of Steele and nipped him at the line by just 0.060 seconds for the exhilarating victory. Sharing victory lane at the event were Jim Pettit II with the IMCA Modifieds, Adriane Frost with the IMCA Sport Mods, Joe Gallaher with the Hobby Stocks and Shawn Jones with the South Bay Dwarf Cars.

The 30-lap Taco Bravo Sprint Car main event began with Gizdich Ranch Dash winner Steele jumping out to the early lead. A well-groomed surface from track prep artist Tom Sagmiller lent to the some of the best racing of the season on Friday night. Following a couple early cautions things went green to checkered over the final 23 circuits. Steele sat out front and made some excellent pinpoint moves in traffic to keep the rest of the field at bay.

Things got hectic towards the end though with several lapped cars racing for position in front of the leaders. With Steele boxed in Kaeding and Scelzi closed in quickly and set up the classic finish. Rounding the final corners Kaeding charged to the high-side and battled his way past to win by inches at the checkered, with Scelzi right there as well. Justin Sanders went from 11th to fourth, with Mitchell Faccinto rounding out the top-five. Completing the top-10 were Andy Forsberg, Chase Johnson, Kaleb Montgomery, Jake Andreotti and Max Mittry.

THIEL SCORES 2ND CAREER MOWA SPRINT CAR SERIES WIN AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

August 20, 2022 (Jacksonville, IL) - Scotty Thiel made the most of a trip to Lincoln Speedway on Friday night with the Morrow Brothers Ford MOWA Sprint Car Series. 26 410 Sprint Cars were on hand for Friday’s #NightBeforeTheMile.

Three heat races started the night for the MOWA Sprint Cars. In 5D Speed Shop Heat One, a tangle involving Chris Urish and Robert Ballou resulted in the #96 machine of Ballou to get upside down on the back stretch. Both drivers escaped without injury. Front row starter Shelby Bosie went on to grab the win over polesitter Cory Bruns and a hard charging Joe B. Miller, who started seventh.

Collision Concepts Inc. Heat Two was just as eventful as the first, when Brent Crews, piloting an entry for Paul May Motorsports made significant contact with the turn four catch fence, ending his night. Crews was able to walk away. Corbin Gurley, started in the second position, ripped around the top side of the Logan County Fairgrounds to head to victory with Zach Hampton
