Race Results From Coast to Coast

Kofoid defends his track crown, defeating the All Stars at Fremont Speedway

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – For the second straight night of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek Presented by Hercules Tires, a driver defended his “home turf” from the invading Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobil 1. Penngrove, California’s Buddy Kofoid, the 2019 track champion at Fremont Speedway, led all 35 laps of the Baumann Auto Group A-main at “The Track That Action Built” Saturday, July 4, to score his second career All Star win.

Kofoid’s third career win at Fremont didn’t come easy as heavy lapped traffic left him vulnerable to two-time All Star champion Aaron Reutzel. However, Kofoid, in only his third start behind the wheel of a sprint car in 2020, exhibited talent beyond his years, making a daring move around two lapped cars exiting turn 4 with just seven laps to go, putting some distance between him and Reutzel.

“Last year, honestly, if the track was like this we would have been maybe a podium or top five car. Steven and the guys…they’ve picked it up. We’ve got our cars so good on the slick tracks like this and even Attica last night we were so good. All night if there was a cushion or bottom or through the slick we were right on point. Those lappers made me nervous but I’ve seen from the past if the bottom is only down here (turns one and two) you don’t want to move outside just follow them and try to let them slide up and get under them and slide them. I could rail the top in three and four at the end pretty good and get a run and get around them and back to the bottom. I had to try and get as many lapped cars between them and me as I could and hopefully they would have to take some time to get around like I did,” explained Kofoid beside his Gill Construction/CK Plumbing/Linder’s Speed Equipment backed machine.

“I can’t thank Ed Neumeister enough, Ray Brooks especially and the Linders for all they do for me. They let me come out here and have some fun. This is only my third sprint car race this year and I have a fourth and a second and a win with the All Stars is pretty damn cool. I have to leave after Monday to go run the midget. I enjoy coming back to these sprint car races and seeing all the fans,” added Kofoid. “Pretty cool to have both of my All Star wins come during speedweek.”

The Baumann Auto Group – the presenting sponsor of the Attica Fremont Championship Series – held a mini challenge for series members involving Attica Raceway Park on Friday and Fremont on Saturday. Cale Conley scored the most points for the two nights and took home a $2,000 bonus.

Fostoria, Ohio’s Shawn Valenti and Jim Holcomb literally raced door to door the last 13 laps of the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck A-main. Valenti held off Holcomb to claim his second win of the season at Fremont and the 57th of his career at the track, placing him sixth on the all-time win list.

“These guys in this division are getting better and better and they make it extremely tough. We had to change a rear end gear after our heat and that had us scrambling so to get this win was very rewarding. I have to thank the Babcocks for putting me in this truck and all our great sponsors,” said Valenti beside his Best Performance Motorsports; A Plus Auto Center; Craig Miller Trucking; KS Sales & Service; Gressman Powersports; Dave Story Equipment, Speedways Bar and Grill backed #7B.

At the drop of the green for the 35 lap All Star feature, Kofoid jumped into the early lead over Josh Baughman, Jac Haudenschild, Reutzel, Cole Duncan, Tim Shaffer and Adam Kekich. Kofoid immediately established himself as the car to beat, pulling away from Baughman while Haudenschild and Reutzel battled for third.

Action ground to a half on lap four when Zeb Wise went for a wild ride but walked away uninjured. It was a bad break for Reutzel who had blasted into the runner-up spot but had to restart third.

Kofoid once again pulled away when the Silver Top Sports Bar and Grill green flew. Reutzel and teammate Baughman battled hard for second. Following a caution on lap 14, that kept Kofoid out of lapped traffic, Reutzel jumped into the second spot on the restart.

Kofoid was able to grow his lead to nearly 1.7 seconds by lap 22 as Reutzel settled into second while Cole Duncan, who scored the win at Fremont two weeks ago, grabbed third after a spirited battle with Baughman. Kofoid’s lead began to disappear as he raced into lapped traffic on lap 23. Reutzel closed to the leader’s rear bumper with just seven laps to go when Kofoid blasted to the outside of two lapped cars who were racing side by side.

Now with a cushion of two lappers, Kofoid easily drove away to the win over Reutzel, Duncan, Greg Wilson and Baughman.

In the 20 lap dirt truck A-main, Jim Holcomb grabbed the early lead over while a tremendous battle ensued behind him involving John brooks, Cody Truman, Valenti, Dustin Keegan and Brad Mitten. A couple of early cautions allowed Valenti to work his way into second and by lap eight he and Holcomb began their side by side battle that lasted until the checkers flew.

Behind that lead duo, the action was hot and heavy for third involving Brooks, Keegan, Mitten, Keith Sorg and Dana Fry. When the dust settled Valenti eked out the win over Holcomb, Keegan, Brooks and Mitten.

Fremont Speedway will play host to night 3 of the Ohio Sprint Speedweek on Sunday, July 5 with the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints joining the racing card. Gates open at 4 p.m. with racing underway at 7 p.m. on Vision Quest Night.

Wyatt Burks Bests Midwest Wingless field for Bud Shootout Win, Danley, Bowers and Eaton also Find Victory Lane

By: Jacob Blair

OSBORN, Mo. – It took three tries, but the Bud Shootout at US 36 Raceway proved worth the wait.

A full-field of USAC Midwest Wingless Racing Association Driver’s took to the high banks to fight for the prestigious Bud Shootout win. Pole-sitter Wesley Smith paced the field through the first half of the race. Chris Parkinson followed in second, while Wyatt Burks began working through the field from his ninth place starting position.

The story in this race became lap traffic as the leaders found it early and often. Smith had a solid lead entering lap traffic, while Burks used the traffic to move around Parkinson for second. Once Burks chased down Smith, it was again lapped traffic that helped Burks move into the lead. After dealing with a late race restart, Burks drove his car into Westfall GMC Victory Lane. On that late restart, Parkinson made the pass on Smith for second. Smith finished third. Koby Barksdale charged from a 12th place starting position to finish fourth, with Kory Schudy completing the top five.

The Sprint Series of Nebraska portion of the Bud Shootout witnessed a dominating performance from second place starter Joey Danley. Danley led the entire 25-lap feature in comfortable fashion on his way to the win. Tyler Drueke moved up from fifth to finish second, while Stuart Snyder drove up from ninth to finish third. The hard charger of the race was Monty Ferriera, as he finished fourth after starting 15th. Kenny Potter completed the top five.

The IMCA Modified feature became a tale of two halves of the race. Half number one went to Brandon Williams as he looked to have the car to beat. Leading comfortably, a lapped car made contact with Williams, forcing him pit side and ending his night. Steven Bowers Jr. inherited the lead, after moving up from an eighth place starting position, and dominated the remaining half of the feature.

The battle for second though proved to be the race of the night. Chad Andersen and Josh Munsen traded sliders and neither could hang onto the second place position for more than a corner. Munsen beat out the current point leader of Andersen at the line on finish second. Mark Schafman made use of a late race restart to propel himself into a fourth place finish, while Chad Clancy finished fifth.

In the IMCA Sport Mods, Tim Eaton found victory lane for the first time in 2020 at US 36. Eaton led most of the race, but had pressure from Chris Wright and Steven Clancy all race long. However, Wright and Clancy battled for second amongst themselves, allowing Eaton a few car lengths and enough breathing room to get the win. Wright finished second and Clancy third. Tim Stallbaumer finished fourth with Jeffrey Sears finishing out the top five.

Up next at US 36 is a second night of racing for the weekend on Saturday, July 4.. The IMCA Modifieds battle for $1,000 to win, with the IMCA Stock Cars, E-Modifieds and Pure Stocks also on the card.

McIntosh Scores Victory back in his Family Owned Car for Night #1 of the 5th Annual Midget Roundup.

Garden City, KS. (07/03/2020) Cannon McIntosh, hops back in his family owned #08 for the weekend with POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League, and finds himself in victory lane. At the fastest 1/6- mile dirt oval in Kansas, all eyes were glued on the front-runners battling for the top positions. After losing the lead to Trey Gropp, McIntosh regrouped and found himself back in victory lane for the third time this season with the POWRi Midget Leagues.

Cannon McIntosh in the #08 lead the field to green flag competition, with the #2 of Bob Harr to his outside. McIntosh takes the early lead on the top side, while Bob Harr, Tristin Thomas, Robert Dalby, and Trey Gropp are fighting for positions 2-4. The #43 slows on the front stretch bringing out the caution. Once racing resumed on the racetrack, McIntosh would once again stretch his lead over the field. Gropp took over second place position from the #28 of Thomas.

McIntosh endured heavy lapped traffic ahead of him, which caused the #00 of Trey Gropp to reel him in. As McIntosh battled with a lapped car on the top side, Gropp took the bottom side of the racetrack and found himself taking over the lead. Gropp lead a lap, then gets into the back of a lapped car causing his motor to slow. McIntosh regained the lead and found himself back in victory lane for the third time this season. Followed by second place runner, Trey Gropp and rounding out your top three, Robert Dalby.

"Gropp got by me there, and I just wasn't driving hard enough. I was way tight, I just started working hard through traffic and I got back by him. I just needed to drive the car harder" Stated McIntosh. "It's cool that when Keith and the team aren't racing, I can come down here and we can put something together and go win."

"I followed the lapped car into the corner, and I caught him with the right front. The engine actually died, but somehow I kept it running." Stated second place finisher, Trey Gropp after his career best POWRi finish.

"We struggled coming off of turn two, the motor was spitting and sputtering. I have to go through and look at a couple of things, but otherwise, not a bad night." Stated third place finisher, Robert Dalby.

Must See Racing

DEGRAFF, Ohio – Veteran Charlie Schultz proved that experience was the key to victory lane during Friday’s inaugural event for the Must See Racing Midwest Lights Series at Shady Bowl Speedway.

Driving the No. 92 for his 410 car owner, John Reiser, Schultz inherited the top spot after polesitter and early leader Brenden Torok crashed working lap seven and led the rest of the way at the three-tenths-mile oval.

Schultz opened up a margin of more than five seconds at times during the 40-lapper and led the final 34 circuits virtually uncontested. He took the checkers 1.542 seconds clear of runner-up Dylan Watson.

“Brenden was leading pretty good … I was about a half a straightaway back, and he got into (turns) three and four a bit high, and it shot him up the race track into some speedy dry and then into the fence,” Schultz recalled. “It knocked the front end and the rear end out of his car, but that’s what put us in the lead.

“We had a good car, but we changed a bunch of stuff after the heat race and right before the feature because the car was terrible tight,” Schultz added. “Between John (Reiser), the Shark (Anthony Linkenhoker), Adam (Biltz) and myself, we got this thing rolling really good when it mattered.”

The event featured full-sized sprint cars competing with Chevrolet Performance 602 crate engines, with the long-term goal being for the Midwest Lights Series to become a feeder pipeline for drivers to later step up to the premier 410ci series under the Must See Racing banner.

Schultz started fourth on the grid Friday night, but had passed up to second by lap five, just two tours before Torok hit the wall and dropped from contention. Torok, 16, ended up ninth in the final rundown.

Toward the front of the field, it was a race for second after Schultz assumed command, with Watson grabbing the position on lap 18 and chasing Schultz for the remaining distance.

Jason Rader filled out the podium, followed by J.J. Henes and Joey Wyckoff.

Tim Henthorne was the final car on the lead lap in sixth place.

Schultz was quick to point out after the race that Friday night’s debut Midwest Lights race was a solid first step and that the series should grow as the season goes on, along with the talent in the field.

“I think this series will turn into a really viable thing, it just takes time when you’re building something,” Schultz noted. “It’s really cost-effective and a good stepping stone for guys to learn the sprint cars on pavement before they move up into the 410s. That’s what the goal is for this deal and I can see the path that Jim and Nancy (Hanks) want to take with it. I think it’s going to be a good thing as it grows.

“It’s cool to be the first Must See Midwest Lights winner,” Schultz continued. “I was the first King of Wings (supermodified) winner at Oswego (Speedway in New York) back 10 or 11 years ago, and now we’ve gotten another first here this weekend and those things are always special to our race team.”

The next race for the Must See Racing Midwest Lights Series will be July 18 at Lorain County Speedway, a companion event with the national Must See Racing Sprint Car Series presented by Engine Pro.

Henry defends home turft, defeats All Stars to open Ohio Speedweek at Attica

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Cap Henry defended home turf Friday at Attica Raceway Park. The Republic, Ohio driver regained the lead on lap 35 and drove to his third win of the season at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant, defeating the invading Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions to open the Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek Presented by Hercules Tires.

It was Henry’s eighth career win at Attica and his second All Star victory coming on the 126th appearance of the series at the track on Ohio CAT/Baumann Auto Group/Ohio Laborers Night.

“I was really nervous leading on that restart (on lap 20). Wasn’t really sure what I was doing before hand was right. I knew them guys were real good. Buddy (Kofoid) got by and kind of pulled me a little bit and we kind of kept creeping in and creeping in. Traffic was so hard to pass…you couldn’t find any where to get around them. I had to wait with Buddy and when I got next to him I had to go. I couldn’t give him the opportunity to take my line away,” said Henry beside his Dragon’s Milk White/Beer Barrel Bourbon/Pro Auto Wraps/FK Rod Ends backed machine.

So far this season at Attica, Henry has three wins, a third and a ninth place finish to lead the track points. He picked up an extra $1,000 from the track for defeating the All Stars.

“Brett and Patty Lane gave me a great opportunity here and we continue to make the most of it. Zack (Meyers) came on board last year and this is incredible. I’ve come so close to winning one of these speedweek races here and to finally knock one off is so cool,” said the former All Star rookie of the year.

Defending All Star champion Aaron Reutzel jumped out to the early lead of the 40-lap feature with Buddy Kofoid and fifth starter Henry staying close. Henry took second on lap three and began to close on Reutzel as the leaders raced into heavy lapped traffic by lap 10.

Henry took the lead with a low move on lap 12 with Reutzel now having his hands full with Kofoid while Cale Thomas stayed within striking distance. Kofoid was able to wrestle the runner-up spot away on lap 15 and closed on Henry. The only caution fell on lap 20 when a lapped car spun right in front of the battle for second involving Kofoid, Thomas and Reutzel. Thomas made contact but kept going.

On the restart Kofoid made his move, driving into the lead. The California native began to pull away but with eight laps to go, Henry started to close the gap. Henry was able to sneak the nose of his car under Kofoid on lap 35 to take the lead. Henry was patient with the lapped cars, never pushing the issue the final five laps to score the win over Kofoid, Reutzel, Thomas and Cale Conley.

Britton, Michigan’s Devin Shiels, Attica’s 2017 late model champion, hung around the top five throughout the first 13 laps of the Propane.com/Dirt Nerds Podcast late model feature before making his move to take the lead. A caution with three laps to go and another with just one lap remaining gave Jon Henry a couple of shots at Shiels but he was too strong on the bottom of the track and scored his seventh career Attica win.

“I wish I’d have flipped my nose under that tractor tire and got it off the track sooner to stay green. I want to thank my dad and son and Denny for coming down and helping us every week here. Dirt Nerds Pod Cast, Rally’s Hamburgers, Dundee Products, Magic Fountain Auto Wash and Mini Storage…thanks. And all the guys that help us, Denny, Braden to my dad…everybody,” said Shiels.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, July 10 with the late models, 305 sprints and dirt trucks in action.

Brett Becker Best in URSS vs DCRP Sprint Car Clash

The Independence Day weekend got off to an early start at Dodge City Raceway Park on Thursday night with Brett Becker picking up the $1,000 winner’s share in the Mel Hambelton Ford Racing POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series vs. DCRP “Sprint Car Clash” atop the 3/8-mile clay oval.

Becker gridded the feature outside the front row but it was 16-year-old pole starter Kyler Johnson gunning into the initial lead. Forth starting Jake Bubak would handle Becker on lap 2 to move into the runner up spot. By lap five the young Becker would find the bottom to his liking moving back by Bubak and taking the lead one lap later from Johnson.

Working through traffic much of the way, Becker fought off a bid from reigning DCRP Nationals champion Jake Bubak at the midway point and then had Johnson on his tailtank again after a Bubak miscue on the 16th lap.

Becker found open track with five laps to go when the race’s only caution flew after Taylor Velasquez got into the outside wall. Becker took off on the restart to secure his first URSS win ahead of Johnson with Zach Blurton coming from tenth to claim the Keizer Wheels Hard Charger award, and Ray Seemann and Bubak rounding out the top five.

Tyler Knight, Jeremy Huish and Koby Walters topped Sprint Car heat race action with Velasquez winning the “B” Main.

Brett Becker Best in DCRP Sprint Car Clash with Kale Beavers

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (July 2, 2020) – The Independence Day weekend got off to an early start at Dodge City Raceway Park on Thursday night with Brett Becker picking up the $1,000 winner’s share in the DCRP vs. United Rebel Sprint Series “Sprint Car Clash” atop the 3/8-mile clay oval.

While the Odessa, TX racer took Sprint Car honors, Kale Beavers bested the IMCA Modifieds, Luke Stallbaumer scored the IMCA Modified win, Gregg Schell snared IMCA Stock Car honors and Brady Bencken handled the IMCA Hobby Stocks.

In the 25-lap Hambelton Racing DCRP Sprint Car vs. URSS “Sprint Car Clash”, Becker gridded the feature outside the front row but it was 16-year-old pole starter Kyler Johnson gunning into the initial lead.

Johnson paced the opening handful of laps until Becker blasted by on the low side to take command. Working through traffic much of the way, Becker fought off a bid from reigning DCRP Nationals champion Jake Bubak at the midway point and then had Johnson on his tailtank again after a Bubak miscue on the 16th lap.

Becker found open track with five laps to go when the race’s only caution flew after Taylor Velasquez got into the outside wall. Becker took off on the restart to secure his first DCRP win ahead of Johnson with Zach Blurton, Ray Seemann and Bubak rounding out the top five.

Tyler Knight, Jeremy Huish and Koby Walters topped Sprint Car heat race action with Velasquez winning the “B” Main.

In the 15-lap IMCA Modified feature event, Kale Beavers capitalized on a Dakota Sproul miscue to win his first feature at DCRP since July of 2017.

Sproul paced the opening four circuits before clipping an infield cone, handing the lead over to Beavers who had already advanced from sixth.

Beavers paced the field the rest of the way, ultimately taking the checkered flag ahead of Nick Link, Brendon Gemmill, David Solberg and Trent Gray.

Luke Stallbaumer became the third different leader just before the midway point of the 20-lap IMCA Sport Modified main event and led the rest of the way to post the win.

Mike Appel lead a half dozen circuits before surrendering the point to Kyle Wiens. Wiens time out front was short-lived, with Stallbaumer racing into the lead on the ninth round after working his way forward from the eighth starting position.

Stallbaumer raced underneath the checkered flag ahead of Mike Lunow with Wiens, Matt Rucker and Appel rounding out the top five.

Gregg Schell took command of the 15-lap IMCA Stock Car feature on the third round and then weathered a late caution flag to capture his first DCRP feature win.

After taking the lead away from Marlin Hogie in the early going, Schell checked out on the field and appeared to be on the way to an easy win until a 15th lap caution set up a green-white-checkered run to the stripe.

Schell kept opening night winner Troy Burkart at bay over the final circuits with Michael Pepper, Jeff Kaup and Chris Oliver also in the top five.

In the 15-lap IMCA Hobby Stock main event, Brady Bencken raced from the fourth row outside into the lead in just three laps en route to victory lane.

Bencken crossed the stripe ahead of Tathan Burkhart with Dion Priddy, Duane Wahrman and Skeets Salazar filling out the top five.

Dodge City Raceway Park fires back into action on Saturday, July 18, with the $1,000-to-win Stock Car Shootout along with a full slate of championship chase action including IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds and IMCA Hobby Stocks.

Defending Champion Paulie Colagiovanni Takes Lucas Oil ESS Opener at Can-Am Speedway

LaFARGEVILLE, NY – Paulie Colagiovanni dominated the 2019 season with the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints en route to his first career title. On Wednesday night the series returned to action for the first time in 2020 with Colagiovanni not skipping a beat.

The Marcellus, N.Y., driver didn’t have the best of starting position to begin the 25-lap A-Main at Can-Am Speedway, but that didn’t matter. He Jumped into the top three with five laps complete before taking the lead two laps later. He cruised to the win from there for the $2,000 payday.

“The car felt pretty good,” stated Colagiovanni. “We used the same setup as last year. I knew it was going to be pretty good. I just have to thank Doug, my dad, Alicia and Barb, just everyone that helps make this happen. I’m so thankful for them.”

At the start, Matt Tanner got the drop on fellow front row starter Josh Pieniazek. Tanner found the moisture on the top of the race track and rocketed to the lead. He was quickly joined at the front by Chuck Hebing who took second a lap later.

It was a two-car race for the first handful of laps before Colagiovanni made his presence felt after starting sixth. Colagiovanni drove around Hebing for second on lap six before doing the same to Tanner a lap later as he worked the moisture on the bottom of the speedway in turns three and four.

“I tried the outside of three and four early and really didn’t like it so I tried the bottom,” mentioned Colagiovanni. “I felt like if I could arc it in there just right, I could get to the bite. I was able to find it.”

Colagiovanni checked out from there as his car was glued to the inner hub on the speedway in three and four while he navigated the extreme high-side of the race track at the opposite end. As he escaped pressure, Tanner and Hebing kept their battle going for the runner-up position.

With Colagiovanni checked out, Hebing was finally able to clear Tanner for second in traffic on lap 14. Hebing’s rein on the position was short lived as Tanner went back around him on lap 16 to regain the position with Shawn Donath entering the mix.

The top four remained unchanged as the laps were clicked off. It wasn’t until lap 23 when Colagiovanni lost his big lead as the caution was necessary for Tyler Trump as he stopped on the backstretch.

The double-file restart didn’t faze Colagiovanni as he quickly regained the advantage over the competition when the green lights were clicked on. Tanner and Hebing resumed their race for second while Donath attempted to go by both of them on the top.

“I wasn’t too happy to see that caution,” commented Colagiovanni. “I got a good restart, held my line and was able to win.”

As the checkered flag flew it was Colagiovanni claiming the win over Tanner. Tanner fought hard in the closing laps to keep Hebing behind him. He was successful in his quest as he crossed the line behind the defending champion.

“This is a great way to start the year,” said Tanner. “We’ve run second both times out. I guess you can only go up from there. Hopefully we’ll get a win here someday. I think I’ve finished second 10 times here. I’ve never been able to seal the deal.”

Hebing was able to get a run on the final lap on Donath to get back around him off of turn four to finish on the podium.

“Matt, Shawn and I had a good race,” stated Hebing. “Paulie whooped us pretty bad. When I missed the bottom getting off the corner, they’d pass me, when they’d miss I’d pass them. Our three cars were pretty even. This is good after a couple weeks to at least finish in the top three.”

Donath took home the fourth position while former Can-Am winner Davie Franek completed the top five. Rounding out the top ten were Josh Pieniazek, Jason Barney, Ryan Coniam, Tyler Cartier and Kelly Hebing.

Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints A-Main – Paulie Colagiovanni ($2,135), Matt Tanner ($1,010), Chuck Hebing ($835), Shawn Donath ($830), Davie Franek ($530), Josh Pieniazek ($470), Jason Barney ($455), Ryan Coniam ($470), Tyler Cartier ($410), Kelly Hebing ($475), Pete Richardson ($360), Chad Miller ($345), Kyle Phillips ($325), Tyler Trump ($390), Denny Peebles ($310).

The Miracle Slide Job


With the sun shining high in the big blue sky over Gondik Law Speedway in Superior, Wi, the spectators and drivers were set for a great night of dirt track racing. 13-winged warriors were signed in the racing program along with a packed track of racing competition of 29 wingless tradionals. This event was sanctioned by 3 different sprint car series making it a tri-sanctioned event for the traditional wingless sprint cars. The series included were as follows: the Pirtek UMSS (Upper Midwest Sprint Car Series), the Northern Renegades, and the Shequamogon’s sprint cars. The event made up 2 heat races for the winged sprints and 3 heat races for the wingless.

With the wingless sprint A feature first on deck, Ken Hron’s 91 and Jon Lewerer’s 69s brought the field to the green flag! There were multiple slide jobs and great passing throughout the entire night thanks to the Gondik Law Speedways’ phenomenal track crew. Halfway through the race Scott Brandt in the 7b finally made his way into the runner up spot in front of Lewer’s machine. With a handful of exchanges for the race lead, Scott Brandt found himself on top and overthrew Lewerer for the top spot...Scott Brandt wins the wingless traditional Pirtek A feature! Coming home second was Lewerer, in 3rd was Stordahl, Ken Hron, Rob Caho Jr completing the top 5. Set in store with a great wingless A feature, it was time to run the wing warriors next. 11 hungry, winged monsters were breathing down Harry Hanson and Patrick Heikkien’s neck as they brought the field to the green flag for 20 laps. In the opening laps, Rick Kobs in the Kick Ass Beef Jerky #1 weaseled his way forward to the top 5 in the first half of the race and eventually scored himself a top 3 to his name that night. Meanwhile, while Kobs was climbing forward, it was unfortunately the opposite for your pole sitter Stordahl as he fallen back outside the top 5...finishing 6th for the A feature. Resuming racing up in front, Hanson now has climbed his way up into the second spot and tracking down your race leader Patrick Heikkien. As it seemed like the race was history, Hanson on not only the final lap of the race, but the last CORNER took the miracle slide job and slid into ROCK AUTO victory lane by less than 3/10th of a second the margin of vitory!! Harry Hanson won a miracle finish! Heikkien was scored 2nd, Rick Kobs 3rd, Rick Niemi, and Ryan Johnson completing your top 5.

All in all, with the 2 of the best baddest divisions in sprint car racing in the Upper Midwest at Gondik Law Speedway, the racing was incredible all night long! Again, there was a total of 7 races for the wingless and Winged sprint cars making up 3 wingless sprint heats, 2 winged heats, and a 25 lap wingless A feature, as well as the 20 lap winged feature. Track was great all night long... tacky in the beginning and nice and slick in the end making it pretty much the perfect night.

PIRTEK UMSS

 

A warm and sticky day at CLS made it a good night for a perfect track. With the track starting off tacky early on, it eventually got worked in and became a perfect track for the rest of the evening. There were 15 total wingless traditional PIRTEK UMSS sprints signed into Saturday’s show at Cedar Lake speedway; however, only 14 of them participated in the program with unfortunate luck with Brad Cunningham’s #11 machine not able to get started. 13 cars were from Minnesota, one was a Wisconsin native, and one hailed all the way down South from Florida!

14 of the cars made up two, seven car heat races going 10 laps the distance. After each heat race is complete, the UMSS sanctioning body determines the feature line up from a redraw before the A-feature. Once the preliminary races were complete, Scott Brandt’s 7 brought the field to the green flag for 20 laps of PIRTEK sprint car action! Early on it was Jr with the early advantage and on lap 6 things began to heat up between him and veteran Brad Peterson in the 93. After multiple slide job exchanges between the leaders. Caho Jr began to pull away again on lap 11 and the rest was history. Caho Jr has extended lead up to a full 4 second lead on lap 17 and dominated the race by nearly 5.5 seconds over second place finisher Brad Peterson. What a race! Coming home 3rd was Ryan Bowers, in 4th Jon Lewerer, and Harry Hanson completing the top 5.

As usual, it was another awesome packed night of racing at Cedar Lake Speedway at the high banked dirt oval in New Richmond, Wi. Caho Jr absolutely swept the weekend with perfect weather, great drivers, but even better supporters like our fans. It could not be possible without people like you. Next race for the Pirtek UMSS series is Saturday, July 18, at Cedar Lake Speedway where both the winged and wingless collide together for another great weekend. For more information, visit them online at www.UMSS.com.
