Must See Racing Sprint Car Series

NEWTON, N.C. -- Just as they have all season long, the McCune family kicked off the final weekend of the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series season in dominating fashion, sweeping Friday's twin 20-lap qualifying races for the MSR Championships at Hickory Motor Speedway.

19-year-old Anthony McCune led the entirety of the first qualifier from the outside pole, jumping out to a full second's margin on the opening lap and polesitter Charlie Schultz waged an early scrap with Brian Gerster for the runner-up spot.

Gerster worked around Schultz on the second revolution but could never catch the younger McCune, who maintained a consistent 1.5-second gap throughout the remaining distance en route to the win, his first major triumph in Must See Racing competition.

Though Gerster and third-place finisher Aaron Pierce faded in the final laps, both veterans locked themselves into the top-six redraw by finishing on the podium of the qualifying race.

In the second qualifier, three-time series champion Jimmy McCune -- Anthony's uncle -- assumed the top spot after polesitter and early leader Bronzie Lawson IV fell out with motor issues on lap nine, necessitating a caution and the lone restart of the entire day.

From there, the elder McCune held off a hard-charging Johnny Petrozelle to win the qualifier, with Petrozelle and Steve Surniak completing the podium and locking into Saturday's redraw for their starting positions.

Meanwhile, Pierce came away with a $100 bonus for setting the Abe's Auto Parts Fast Time during two-lap qualifying to start the program, posting a lap of 12.293 seconds (106.304 mph) in the No. 26 Sam Pierce Chevrolet/Valvoline entry.

Friday's effort marked the second fast time of Pierce's Must See Racing career, as well as his first since Hickory in 2015.

Petrozelle, Gerster, Jimmy McCune and Anthony McCune completed the top-five in time trials.

Of note, Jimmy McCune had already clinched his third-consecutive series championship prior to rolling through the gates at Hickory on Friday, carrying an unassailable 97-point lead over Anthony McCune on the strength of seven wins throughout the season.

Saturday's portion of the MSR Championships kicks off at 10 a.m. with final practice for the sprint cars, followed by the top-six redraw at noon. The 50-lap feature will take the green flag at 1:45 p.m.

Murcott’s Mildura Flag to Flag sweep
After an 8 month wait the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series teams got to display their new war paint at Timmis Speedway Saturday night with Dave Murcott driving the Victory Lane V88 taking a flag to flag win. Brenten Farrer’s V34 and Chris Solomon’s V83 were dicing for 2nd and 3rd with Farrer passing Solomon on the last lap to pick up second relegating Solomon into third.
Murcott enjoyed his run in the 360 “you just got to keep it wound up and keep the foot into it – but I am having fun. He then thanked car owners Victory Lane Racegear Renee & Mat Eastham. “I would like to do some more if I can fit them in”.
An eventful A Main took a while to get going with several attempts at the start. Guerin & Murcott lined up on the front row with Caruso & Paul Solomon behind them. Reds were bought on at the start with Paul Solomon & Guerin sitting on the infield as a result. NT26 Tony Moule, S95 Jarman Dalitz suffered damage also but were able to restart. After a promising start Stacey Gallifords night was also ended abruptly as she retained front end damage and slid into the tire wall in Turn 4. Farrer’s night was not going to plan for the Team with pesky engine issues. After dropping a heat and lining up in the B he drove the wheels off the car to put it onto the podium. Reds were bought out again with S69 Cody Atkins, S15 Jack Gartner & NS38 Shaun Forrell all suffering damage and ending their nights in a Turn 3 incident.
Taking out the Oval Express Magazine Quick Time Award was V7 Paul Solomon with a 12.510 on the last qualifying lap of the session.

Jimmy Trulli holds off Sean Becker to win a spooky good finish at Marysville Raceway season-finale on Saturday

Marysville, CA – October 28, 2017…The penultimate Winged Sprint Car event of the season in Northern California invaded Marysville Raceway on Saturday night with picture perfect weather presented at the quarter-mile. When all was said and done it was veteran driver Jimmy Trulli of Placerville that held off a torrid late-race charge from Roseville’s Sean Becker to pick up the $2,000 win at the Gold Fever H&H Trenching Sprint Spooktacular.

Trulli was aboard the Ingraham Motorsports No. 93 machine during the night and got the jump at the waving of the green flag from the pole in the 25-lap feature. Numerous caution periods and couple red flags plagued the flow of the contest, but in-between the stoppages the action remained entertaining.

Throughout the race Trulli continued to his marks as Sean Becker tried to find a way by, hounding him in second. Becker, the six-time Silver Dollar Speedway champion, was driving for car owner Dan Monhoff and continued to get faster as the main event wore on. With a few laps remaining traffic came into play for Trulli and it bottled him up just enough to allow Becker a chance to make it a battle for the win. With the crowd coming to their feet the duo went side-by-side as the white flag waved.

With a lap car in play off turn two it was anybody’s game, but Trulli squeezed by on the inside and went on to take the checkered flag by 0.218 seconds over Becker. The finish was as good as you’ll see in sprint car racing and a great way to cap the season at Marysville Raceway.

Penngrove’s Buddy Kofoid, Auburn’s Andy Forsberg and Colfax racer Colby Wiesz rounded out the top-five. Forsberg’s charge was particularly exciting, coming from the rear of the field after an early race bicycle. Heat races went to Justyn Cox, Justin Henry and Jake Haulot. Forsberg began the night by clocking the fastest lap in qualifying with a lap of 12.264, beating out 21 other competitors.

The inaugural Western RaceSaver Sprint Car event at the Marysville Raceway provided a fast-paced main event that saw veteran driver Monty Ferreira pick up the victory. Ferreira was able to fight his way past teammate Matt Demartini midway through the feature to grab the win.

Demartini, Cole Danell, Mauro Simone and Kyle Rasmussen completed the top-five. The division has been one of the fastest growing in all of California and should be a fun one to see more often in the Northern part of the state next year. Nine cars made the trip north with heat races picked off by Cole Danell and Monty Ferreira.

Veteran Terry Schank Jr. charged to victory in the Wingless Spec Sprint portion of the night. The 2017 season may have not gone as Schank would have hoped overall, but he reminded everyone on Saturday that he’s still one of the best business out west when it comes wingless spec sprint racing.

Fellow veteran Shannon Newton didn’t make it easy on him however, and kept the Santa Rosa racer honest as the feature wound down. With time becoming a factor the race was shortened to 15-laps and Schank ultimately took the checkered over Newton, Dan Hayes, Dan Gonderman and Trey Walters in the top-five. Nine spec sprints were on hand with Gonderman winning the lone heat.

The BCRA Midget Lite portion of the night was captured by Scott Kinney, who held off the late charges from son Hunter Kinney. The midget lites put on a very fast main event that saw Kayla Green come home in third, Emilee Lindgren in fourth and Danica Joe Parker in fifth. Eight cars signed in during the night with the lone heat race claimed by Kayla Green and fast time set by Scott Kinney.

The Economy Sprint main event looked to have been won by Cameron Haney, but after executing donuts on the front stretch he was disqualified. Donuts can only be performed in the corners because of safety issues, which has become a normal rule throughout Northern California. This handed the win over to Tyler Meadows. Jeff Macedo, Chad Thompson, Matt Beardslee and Cameron Haney Jr. rounded out the top-five. Seven cars were in action with Haney winning the one heat.

 

 

2017 CRSA Sprint Tour Finale: Radivoy Takes the OCFS Trohpy, Trombley is Crowned the Champion

It was the biggest event and stage of the 2017 Super Gen Products/Champion Power Equipment CRSA Sprint Tour Season. The stars and cars of the 305 Racesaver series group time-trialed their way into an event that would ultimately decide the 2017 Series Champion.
Masonville, New York’s Dana Wagner, in the Hardwood Hills Golf Course 25w, and hometown driver Thomas Radivoy, in the Country Service Center 1Q, would lead the field to the green flag of the 20 lap championship feature event. The race was shortened from 25 laps to 20 laps due to tire wear concerns from the drivers and teams.
Radivoy would jump out and set sail to take the early lead. Thomas had to have a career-type day in order to have a chance at catching Altamont, New York’s Jeff Trombley for the series championship. Trombley, in the Warren’s Auto Body 3A, carried a 17-point lead into the A-Main event.
The race would be slowed on a couple of occasions. The most notable caution flag condition was for a multi-car tangle between 5 cars in turn 4 on lap 7. The only car that was not able to continue after this incident was the Escape RV, Johnson and Conroy Insurance 19em of Sparrowbush, New York’s Emily VanInwegen.
The remainder of the main event would see a battle between Radivoy and the 24 Brandon Wright Motorsports car of East Greenbush, New York’s Bobby Hackel. Hackel had a very balanced and fast sprint car under him. He would make various attempts to close in on Radivoy. But it seemed like turn two would prove to be one of his weak points on the speedway. While Hackel seemed to have a car to win the race, he could not put together a good enough run to overtake Radivoy.
Thomas Radivoy would go on to take his fourth A-Main event win of 2017. Hackel would settle for second. Jeff Trombley would drive a good enough race to maintain his points advantage and come home with a third and final podium position finish. This would be Trombley’s first open-wheeled championship in his illustrious driving career. Trombley would also be crowned the “Hard Clay Challenge” mini series Champion.
The officials and teams of the CRSA Sprint Tour would like to thank all of the tracks, marketing partners and fans involved in supporting the 2017 season. The 2017 championship awards banquet is in the works and the announcement will be made in the very near future. Fans and teams can go to crsasprints.com, ‘CRSA Sprints’ on Facebook, and @CRSAsprints on Twitter to find out more about this year’s championship and the plans for the 2018 season.

C.J. LEARY TAKES THE HARVEST CUP
BRADY SHORT CAPTURES THE MSCS SEASON CHAMPIONSHIP

Haubstadt, IN (October 21, 2017) - C.J. Leary of Greenfield, IN,
raced to victory Saturday night in claiming the “Harvest Cup” to
close out the season for the Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint Car Series
and Tri-State Speedway. Leary was the quickest in a 21 car field
whose overall performance produced an event with all 30 laps
completed under the green flag. There were no restarts and every
position drivers gained took an all out effort.
Leary took the lead from Chase Stockon on lap 7. The gap between the
two leaders varied as they overtook traffic. However Leary was in
control. Stockon would cross the finish line a second and a half
behind. Leary collected $5,000 in winning his first career MSCS
feature. Leary’s car is sponsored by Leary Construction and
Highsmith Guns. The car owners are Chuck and Tammy Leary.
The other drivers in the top five were grouped further back in a
second contest with Kyle Cummins leading Kevin Thomas Jr. and Chase
Briscoe to the line. The second five was led by overall fast
qualifier Chet Williams who was followed by rookie Stephen Schnapf,
Robert Ballou, Donny Brackett, and Brady Short. Carson Short
received the Wilwood Tuff Brakes Award as the eleventh place
finisher.
Brady Short was the Keizer Aluminum Wheels Hard Charger for the race.
He had improved 7 positions overall. Kent Schmidt took a
provisional to start the feature and also improved seven spots to
finish fourteenth. Winner C.J. Leary started seventh and passed six
top competitors. The ZERO redraw had produced a straight up starting
field.
Drivers throughout the field came to race that one last time this season.
Brady Short and car owner Cam Pottorff received their 2017 Hoosier
Tire MSCS Championship trophies and award jackets during opening
ceremonies. It was the fourth series championship for Brady Short
and third in the row for the duo. The MSCS Rookie of the Year Award
was presented to Kendall Ruble during a second presentation which
followed the feature.
In preliminary action the three heat races were won by Chase Stockon,
Kyle Cummins, and Carson Short. Tyler Thomas and Brady Short
finished one and two in the B Main. Collin Ambrose was to have been
one of the 12 starters for the B but had to scratch for the event
after hitting the concrete wall and fencing on the backstretch in the
second heat and flipping. Brandon Mattox and Kent Schmidt were
involved in another accident in that heat. It started with a spin
and ended when Schmidt’s car flipped up onto that of Mattox. However
Mattox started the B and took the last feature transfer position.
Planning and preparation will replace racing for a few months until
the series can return to action next spring for an eighteenth
consecutive year.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Two other classes were in competition at “The Harvest Cup.” The UMP
Modifieds competed in a 25 lap feature. Dave Beck of Petersburg, IN,
took the $1,500 top prize. Dustin Beck was second in the main event
followed by fast qualifier Mark Lamont. The top three also won their
respective heat races. Matt Hines and Trent Young rounded out the
top five for the feature. Lance Forman won the B Main.
The MMSA Mini Sprint feature was the last event on the race card.
Andy Bradley crossed the finish line ahead of Anthony Haas and Chayse
Hayhurst. Jesse Vermillion was fourth followed by Chase Briscoe.
Briscoe was the only driver pulling double duty. He was fifth in both
the MSCS feature and the MMSA feature. Hayhurst won the B Main.
Anthony Haas, Justin Lewis, and Chase Briscoe took the three heat
races.

King of the West-NARC

(10/14/17) By Jim Allen, Hanford, CA … Mitchell Faccinto became the 10th different winner on the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Sprint Car Racing Series with an impressive victory in Saturday’s 30-lap Penny Newman Grain Cotton Classic at Keller Auto Speedway.

Faccinto, piloting Stan Greenberg’s potent TSG Recycling Disposal/Western Metal KPC sprint car, started third in the 22-car grid and had a front row seat to the two previous leaders who suffered mechanical issues in front of him.

Buddy Kofoid was the first driver to pace the field and survived contact on the first circuit with polesitter and dash winner Chase Johnson. Unfortunately, he did not survive a broken shock tower as he powered into the third corner on lap four, which caused his car to pirouette and helicopter several times before landing against the catch fence. The red came out and Kofoid climbed from his car unhurt.

Faccinto led the field on the restart, chased by Dominic Scelzi, Kyle Hirst, Tim Kaeding and Johnson. The two frontrunners battled side-by-side for the lead until Scelzi wheeled past the leader going down the frontchute on the fifth circuit. Scelzi essentially began to check out on the field and was a wizard in lap traffic until the caution appeared for a spinning car on lap 13.

The drama unfolded in front of Faccinto on the restart. As the field roared to the green, the torque tube shattered and flew out from Scelzi’s ride putting Faccinto back in front again. Scelzi coasted to the pit area and Faccinto wasn’t about to squander the opportunity to score his first career King of the West-NARC victory.

Faccinto mastered lap traffic the remaining distance and outran fast qualifier and second place finisher Hirst to win by 10-car lengths. The winning team pocketed a $3000 payday and the custom Cotton Classic Hay Bale trophy for their efforts. Hirst’s podium finish came aboard the Roth Motorsports KPC.

Bud Kaeding, who started 10th in the grid, methodically worked his way to the front of the pack in the Morrie Williams Motorsports Maxim. He was eighth on lap four, sixth on the 13th circuit, fifth on lap 17 and eventually finished third. Kaeding entered the event trailing KWS-NARC point leader Gio Scelzi by one point. He left Hanford with a narrow 855-852 lead with only one race remaining on the schedule.

Scelzi’s evening didn’t go exactly as planned when he jumped the cushion and crashed his Roth Motorsports KPC in his heat race. His team hustled and made repairs to put him position to run away with the 12-lap Flowmaster semi. Scelzi started the feature in the 14th spot, and finished eighth.

2011 series champion Tim Kaeding scored fourth in the Harley Van Dyke sprinter. Cole Macedo posted his best career KWS-NARC outing, driving to fifth in the Tarlton Motorsports ride.

The second five to cross Ed Entz’s checkered was 15th starter Cory Eliason, DJ Netto, Scelzi, Jason Statler, and Mathew Moles.

Heat races were picked off by Hirst, Faccinto, Statler and Moles.

Thorson's 16th Career Win Comes at Jacksonville Race of Champions

Jacksonville, IL - Leading all 30 laps and holding off a late race charge from Rookie Zeb Wise, Tanner Thorson found victory lane for the 16th time with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League. Thorson's Ron Milton Race of Champions win at Jacksonville Speedway is his fourth of 2017.

Enduring several cautions throughout the 30-lap feature event, Tanner Thorson appeared to be the class of the field as the Minden, Nevada driver was able to jump right back into rhythm and power away from the field after each caution. Running right up against the wall on a cowboy up Jacksonville Speedway, Thorson was never seriously challenged until the final stages of the race when a caution on lap 28 set up an opportunity for Rookie Zeb Wise to challenge for the lead. Wise had charged from the 18th position after running the semi.

In the final two laps, both Wise and Thorson left nothing on the table, as Thorson used everything he had to stay out front, while Wise tried his hardest to hang with him. When the checkered flew, Wise found a career-best second with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League, followed by hometown driver Jake Neuman in third. Ryan Robinson took fourth with Tyler Thomas rounding out the top five.

"A lot does happen in a day's race and that's one thing that the fans and drivers love is there's always going to be a next one," said Tanner Thorson. "It's pretty awesome to be able to win here at Jacksonville. I just can't thank my guys enough. They stand behind me. After last night, I thought I may have had the car to win, but that's the difference in starting on the front row or starting in the back."

"We started off the night a little sketchy," commented Zeb Wise. "The power steering pump went out of it and I can't thank Tim, Rizzy, Kevin and my dad enough for getting this thing back on the track. I really didn't think we were going to be able to get to second and battle with all these guys. I can't wait for 2018."

"We just got this BOSS Chassis recently and we've gotten fast these past few races," stated Jake Neuman. "We were fast tonight, but we were nosing over on the right front toward the end. When we get this new car figured out, we'll be faster."

Lucas Oil ESS Champion Jason Barney takes Fall Nationals Win at Brockville Ontario Speedway

By Dean Reynolds

BROCKVILLE, ONT – Brewerton, NY’s Jason Barney has been making a late season statement why he is the 2017 Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) champion by winning his second consecutive $3,000 October victory. Taking the lead from Jeff Cook on lap 11, he beat Mike Mahaney and Coleman Gulick to the line to win the 1000 Islands RV Fall Nationals event at the Brockville Ontario Speedway.

Cook and Barney drew the front row for the 25 lap A-Main with Cook taking to the ample Brockville cushion to open up a sizeable lead early. As the laps clicked on you could see Barney’s #87 closing in. Just before halfway he made his move.

“This is a big win and it feels good to get another win here at the end of the season helping to bring down a great year for me and my team,” noted Jason, “I could see Jeff (Cook) getting a little loose and when we hit the slower traffic I was lucky enough to get a lane down low to get by.”

As lap 11 was scored Barney’s inside sweep got him the lead. Yellow lights shined one lap later for a slowing Jeremy Lasalle which put the duo side by side on the restart. When the green lights shined again, it was Barney taking his front slot again.

As fourth place starting Mahaney also slipped by Cook he tried to reel in the leader. “The track was awesome, It was fast low and high which makes it tough because you don’t know where the cars behind you are running,” Barney continued, “I was comfortable down low but when we came to traffic I had to go high but felt good there also.”

With the final 13 laps going green, the big crowd got a pleasing duel with Barney and Mahaney weaving through traffic to the checkers with Barney under the checkers first.

“We were thinking of going to the Short Track Nationals in Arkansas at the beginning of the year but we felt being ESS champion we have to support tracks like Brockville that had us come in to put on a show and also pay a real good purse,” he went on, “The track was just amazing and with the weather they ran the show right off, we want to thank them.”

For Mahaney his first ever sprint car start at the quarter-mile resulted in a $2,000 pay day aboard the Doug Emery #33. “I think If I could got around Jeff (Cook) before the caution I could have started in the front row with Jason we might have had a better chance,” Mahaney noted, “Being behind the front row, I had to pass Jeff and then catch up to Jason but these laps go quick here.

“I think I might have had a better car there at the end but Jason did a great job passing the slower cars,” Mike on the end of the race, “The track was real racy and it was real fun out there. Thanks to Doug for giving me a great car.”

Gulick’s #14 started in ninth and he immediately took to a groove he is familiar with, up on the cushion. “I went right up high early and picked off some cars, the track was good up there, it was a real good track,” said the Binghamton native. “We just needed a little bit better draw, but that’s ok, everyone had the same numbers to pull from the bucket. We are just glad to get a good run, some momentum as we have been struggling a bit lately.”

Cook held on to place fourth at the end holding off a charging Paulie Colagiovanni. Rounding out the top ten were Rick Wilson, Alain Bergeron, Cory Turner, Dave Axton and Jordan Poirier.

In a very unusual moment, Matt Billings was seen flipping off turn three while the cars were lining up for the initial start. He was ok but perplexed on what happened to the car. Jeremy Lasalle made his first ever sprint car start aboard Shawn Donath’s #53 while Shawn couldn’t attend due to a family function. Lee Ladouceur and Yan Bilodeau suffered blown engines.

Lucas Oil ESS A-Main/1000 Islands RV Fall Nationals – Jason Barney ($3,000), Mike Mahaney ($2,000), Coleman Gulick ($1,000), Jeff Cook ($700), Paulie Colagiovanni ($550), Rick Wilson ($470), Alain Bergeron ($430), Cory Turner ($420), Dave Axton ($410), Jordan Poirier ($400), Chris Jones ($370), Cole McDonald ($350), Pete Richardson ($330), Paul Pekkonen ($325), April Wilson ($320), Jeremy Lasalle ($315), Matt Billings ($310), Lee Ladouceur ($305), Yan Bilodeau ($300)

Lap Leader – Cook 1-10, Barney 11-25

THUNDER ON THE HILL SEASON FINALE

BRETT ‘THE THREAT’ KRESSLEY DOMINATES HAUNTED HALLOWEEN ON ‘THE HILL. . .

KRESSLEY, HIRTHLER, AND STILLWAGGON SCORE FIRST NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES WINS AT GRANDVIEW

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (October 14, 2017) – It was a spooky Halloween night, but there weren’t any tricks for Brett Kressley, as the 25-year-old scored his first NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series victory at the ‘Mods at the Madhouse Traffic Jam’ on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway.

“This felt like the longest race of my life,” an elated – and champagne-soaked – Kressley said in Victory Lane. “I had a really strong car tonight, and I can’t thank my crew enough for all their hard work.”

The Orefield, PA driver couldn’t have had a better night, scoring the win in his qualifying heat race and picking the first position in the Modified redraw of top qualifiers. Known as ‘The Threat,’ Kressley took the lead at the outset of the 40-Lap feature, and held off the best-of-the-best in Modified competition to score the $5,000 victory.

At the drop of the green flag, Kressley shot away from the 24-car field pulling a full-straightaway lead by the just the third circuit around the one-third-mile dirt oval.

The first yellow flag flew on the seventh lap when Oley, PA’s Duane Howard spun in turn four -- while running in the top-five -- after contact with Boyertown, PA’s Ryan Watt. Both cars were sent to the rear of the field.

On the restart, Kressley rolled back into the lead with Danny Erb following closely behind, while Kenny Gilmore and Craig VonDohren challenged for the third position.

Kressley held control at the half-way mark with Erb and Gilmore holding in the top-three positions. The battle for fourth was heating up between 2017 Track Champion, Craig VonDohren and Freedom 76 winner, Jeff Strunk.

The action came to a stop on lap 26, when Dan Bouc, of Pipersville, PA, flipped his No. 32 Modified in turn 2.

It was all Kressley in the final stretch – but it wasn’t easy for the young racer as a group of veterans were hot on his heels. Danny Erb would finish in the second position, Kenny Gilmore in third aboard the Bailey No. 81, Jeff Strunk finishing in the fourth position and Billy Pauch Jr. finishing in the fifth spot.

Ringoes, NJ’s Ryan Godown brought the Searock Fabrications No. 26 home in sixth, Ryan Watt rallied back to finish in seventh, Mike Gular in eighth, Billy Pauch in ninth and Jared Umbenhauer rounding out the top-ten finishers.

Initial fourth-place finisher Craig Von Dohren was found light at the scales and was penalized to the 24th position.

2017 Grandview Speedway Sportsman Champion, Brian Hirthler picked up the $1,300 win in the Madhouse Sportsman event, starting on the pole and holding off a hard-charging Matt Stangle at the conclusion of the 25-lap main event. Hirthler bookended his 2017 racing season with a win on opening night and a win to conclude the season.

Neshanic, NJ’s Matt Stangle finished in second, Mark Kemmerer in third, Jim Houseworth finished in fourth, and Brad Brightbill finished in fifth.

Despite a busted radiator, Ryan Stillwaggon of Burlington, NJ scored his first career Grandview Speedway win in the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Car Series. Stillwaggon dominated the 25-lap feature event and scored the victory despite slowing drastically in the closing circuits. Tim Tanner Jr. came home in the second position, 2017 MASS Series Champion Eddie Wagner finished in third, Austin Bishop in fourth, and Dave Brown in fifth.

Sammy Swindell Wins His Fifth Short Track Nationals

Lonnie Wheatley, LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (October 14, 2017) – Sammy Swindell continues to dole out lessons to the younger generation of racers as he charged to an unprecedented fifth Short Track Nationals victory in Saturday night’s 40-lap event finale atop the high-banked, ¼-mile I-30 Speedway clay oval.

The Memphis area racer surged into the lead on the opening lap from his second row starting position and led all the way aboard the Rains Motorsports No. 3s JR1-chassis to capture the $15,000 winner’s take in the 30th edition of the COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires.

Swindell’s second event win in a row was no cakewalk though, as he had to run a flawless race over the latter half of the race to keep Sam Hafertepe, Jr., and Aaron Reutzel at bay less than a handful of car lengths back.

“We had that caution and A.G. (Rains) signaled for me to go up high and we were definitely a lot better up there,” Swindell explained.

While Clute, TX shoe Aaron Reutzel earned the pole position in the feature aboard the Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution No. 87 Triple-X by beating Tim Crawley to the line in the Pack Building Materials Dash for Cash, it was fourth-starting Swindell splitting the front duo down the backstretch on the opening circuit to take command.

With Swindell leading the way, Hafertepe, Jr., snuck by Reutzel for second moments before a caution flew for Wayne Johnson’s stalled mount just five laps into the race.

Back under way, Swindell stretched out a half straightaway lead as he sliced through traffic until a final caution flew with just a dozen laps remaining. With Hafertepe, Jr., and Reutzel back on his tailtank, Swindell shifted to the top shelf and was perfect over the final rounds to preserve the win.

In hot pursuit, Hafertepe, Jr., and Reutzel were soon joined by a surging Bill Balog in the battle for second. Reutzel slid Hafertepe, Jr., for second coming to the white flag only to have the current Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour points leader cross back under to maintain the position as Balog slipped by for third.

Hafertepe, Jr., prevailed on the final lap to take runner-up honors aboard the Towline Variety/Lonestar Speedway No. 15h Cool-chassis while Reutzel rallied back around Balog to put his Triple-X chassis in third.

“North Pole Nightmare” Balog settled for fourth aboard Ronnie Pitts’ No. 1x with Liberal, KS, native Tony Bruce, Jr., rounding out the top five aboard the Smith Racing/Tiger Towing No. 86.

After starting on the front row outside, Tim Crawley crossed the stripe sixth while Derek Hagar climbed a handful of positions to capture seventh. Hailing from Lincoln, NE, by way of Liberal, KS, Jason Martin was eighth while Tennessee’s Morgan Turpen became the first female to post a top-ten STN championship feature by crossing the stripe in ninth. An STN rookie along with Balog, Canadian Skylar Gee completed the top ten.

Dale Howard, Kyle Bellm, Jeff Swindell, Seth Bergman, Cody Gardner and Morgan Turpen topped the six STN Saturday Night Showdowns. Brad Bowden and Scott Bogucki earned “C” Main wins with Steven Tiner and Wayne Johnson posting “B” Main wins. Willie Croft held the lead in the first “B” Main until mechanical woes stopped him short while Marshall Skinner made hard contact with the infield tires along the frontstretch while racing in a transfer position as well.

Mississippi’s Jan Howard was the winner of the Second Annual “Red Shirt Dash” in honor of Lanny Edwards for C Main non-transfers.

A total of 74 competitors took part in the 30th Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires at I-30 Speedway with nearly $108,000 in prize money awarded over the course of the weekend.

Bayston Takes Career #16 at Jacksonville

Jacksonville, IL - For the fifth time in 2017 and the 16th of his career, Spencer Bayston bagged another victory with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League. Bayston's victory came in the first night of a doubleheader weekend at Jacksonville Speedway.

Starting outside the front row, Bayston took command at the drop of the green flag off turn two. On lap four, the red was displayed as Austin O'Dell caught the rut in turn one and took a wild ride. O'Dell walked away under his own power. For the next five laps, Bayston was relatively unchallenged as Tyler Courtney worked his way to the front. By lap 10, Courtney had secured the second position and set his sights on Bayston. In the final 19 laps, slowly working closer to Bayston, it looked like Courtney may have an opportunity to challenge for the lead in the final circuits.

In the final three laps though, Courtney looked to have missed his mark entering turn one, narrowly avoiding spinning out each time, allowing Bayston to pull away unscathed. Logan Seavey, the current POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League point standings leader finished third. Tucker Klaasmeyer and Tyler Thomas rounded out the top five.

"I think that was Sunshine showing me a nose there on the bottom, so I figured I should at least try it down there," commented Spencer Bayston. "In the last few laps, I figured I should probably stay down there and we brought home the win. I've got to thank my guys; they work really hard on this thing and keep making it better and better. It's a pretty good night."

"We changed a lot of stuff here from the last time we ran and I think we're definitely on the right track," stated Tyler Courtney. "Tim works really hard on these things. We are getting a little bit closer and I know we can get one. Something stumbled getting into one on the last lap, but no excuse there because he still led all thirty and congrats to him." "We were really good tonight," said Logan Seavey. "The track was pretty hooked up in the beginning and then got really racy. By the time we got the third caution we were already up to fourth place. I can't say enough about the car. We just needed some cautions so we could race with these guys."

Hafertepe Reels in Friday STN Prelim Honors

Lonnie Wheatley, LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (October 13, 2017) – Sam Hafertepe, Jr., continued his winning ways by racing to victory lane in Friday night’s 25-lap preliminary feature at the 30th Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires atop the high-banked ¼-mile I-30 Speedway clay oval.

After outdueling Aaron Reutzel for the point in the early going, Hafertepe, Jr., slipped away to a near straightaway advantage over the latter half of the race to secure a prime starting position among the front three rows in Saturday night’s $15,000-to-win, $2,000-to-start STN championship feature.

While the reigning Lucas Oil ASCS National champion from Sunnyvale, TX, posted his second career STN preliminary feature win and first since 2010 aboard the Towline Variety/Lonestar Speedway No. 15h Cool-chassis, Tim Crawley and Aaron Reutzel earned passes to Saturday’s finale as well by virtue of finishing second and third, respectively.

Following a rally from 13th to fifth in Thursday night’s preliminary feature, Hafertepe, Jr., was on point all Friday evening with heat and qualifying race wins to earn the pole position for the feature event with fellow Lone Star State rep Reutzel alongside.

The duo slid each other a pair of times on the opening circuit before Hafertepe, Jr., edged ahead upon the completion of the opening round.

Following the race’s only caution for a Brandon Hanks off-track excursion beyond the turn one banking with eight rounds in the books, Hafertepe, Jr., slipped away, leaving Reutzel and Crawley to battle it out for second.

Hafertepe, Jr., reached traffic with eight laps remaining yet maintained his rapid pace, crossing the stripe with a handful of lapped cars and most of a straightaway between himself and runner-up Crawley.

“We weren’t gonna get too crazy and race each other too hard there early on,” Hafertepe, Jr., said after his 19th overall win of the 2017 campaign. “We can save that for tomorrow night with the money on the line.”

While Hafertepe, Jr., locked into his fifth career STN championship feature, Crawley and Reutzel diced in side-by-side fashion for several laps before Crawley slipped away to secure runner-up honors aboard Mike Ward’s No. 88 Sprint Car. After fading from the pole position to finish sixth in Thursday’s feature, Crawley’s runner-up showing makes him the first driver in STN history to earn a starting berth in 20 STN championship main events.

After challenging Crawley on the topside earlier, Reutzel dropped to the bottom shelf in the closing rounds to preserve the critical third-place finish aboard the Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution No. 87 Triple-X. Saturday will mark Reutzel’s fourth career STN championship feature start.

“We let third slip away from us last night, there was no way I was going to let that happen again,” Reutzel commented after being nipped at the line for the position in Thursday’s feature event.

Liberal, KS, native Jason Martin closed the gap on Reutzel in the closing rounds but had to settle for fourth with Cordova, Tennessee’s Morgan Turpen posting the top feature finish by a female in STN history by rounding out the top five.

Mississippi’s Dale Howard was sixth ahead of Canadian shoe Skylar Gee and local ace Cody Gardner while Jonathan Cornell earned Hard Charger honors by rallying from 17th to ninth. Reigning I-30 Speedway track champion Brian Bell completed the top ten after starting 16th.

Josh Baughman, Wayne Johnson, Seth Bergman, Scott Bogucki, Chance Morton, Terry Gray, Hafertepe, Jr., Ernie Ainsworth and Channin Tankersley topped heat race action for Friday night’s field of 70 with Gee, Turpen, Crawley and Hafertepe, Jr., winning the qualifying races. Jeff Swindell and Rick Pringle earned “C” Main wins with Wayne Johnson and Bell victorious in “B” Main action.

A total of 74 competitors have taken part thus far it the 30th Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires.

The 30th Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires at I-30 Speedway concludes with Saturday’s championship slate of events including STN Showdowns, “C” Mains, “B” Mains, the “Red Shirt Dash”, Pack’s Dash for Cash and $15,000-to-win finale.

Swindell Stops Nightmare at I-30 – Wins STN Opener

Lonnie Wheatley, LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (October 12, 2017) – Sammy Swindell kicked off his pursuit of an unprecedented fifth Short Track Nationals crown in strong fashion by wiring the field in Thursday night’s 25-lap feature that kicked off I-30 Speedway’s 30th Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires.

Though he led the entire distance aboard the Rains Motorsports No. 3s, it wasn’t without some strong mid-race pressure from “North Pole Nightmare” Bill Balog. Swindell ultimately worked through traffic in the latter stages to secure the win ahead of Balog with Tony Bruce, Jr., making a late rally to steal the third and final lock-in position to Saturday night’s $15,000-to-win, $2,000-to-start STN championship finale.

After accumulating the most points through heat and qualifying race action, it was 1998 STN champion and hometown favorite Tim Crawley leading the feature field to the green flag with four-time and defending race winner Swindell alongside.

Swindell gunned into the lead at the outset and kept Crawley and third-starter Balog at bay in the opening rounds before the red flag flew for Josh Baughman’s wild ride through turns three and four. The Odessa, TX, racer walked away unscathed.

Back under way, Swindell set the pace on the low side while Balog worked the top side to dispose of Crawley for second by the seventh circuit.

Soon after the race’s second and final interruption for a Cody Gardner spin in turn one with eight laps in the books, Balog turned up the heat and began pressuring for the point. Swindell stayed steady on the low side though and worked through traffic over the final eight circuits to post his sixth career STN preliminary feature win.

A former Alaska resident now calling Wisconsin home, Balog put Ronnie Pitts’ No. 1x entry into the big show in his first official STN start after a 2015 effort was eliminated due to inclement weather.

In the lead duo’s wake, the battle for the third and final lock-in position was heated with Aaron Reutzel driving the Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution No. 87 past Crawley for third at the midway point.

But, two-time STN winner Tony Bruce, Jr., was on the move in the Smith Racing No. 86, taking fourth away from Crawley on the 21st lap and then gobbling up more than a half straightaway deficit to nip Reutzel at the line for third by mere inches.

Reutzel settled for fourth with Sam Hafertepe, Jr., climbing from 13th to round out the top five. Crawley crossed the stripe sixth with Ernie Ainsworth, Jonathan Cornell, Seth Bergman and 19th-starter Howard Moore completing the top ten.

Crawley, Morgan Turpen, Ray Allen Kulhanek, Steven Tiner, Reutzel, Kyle Bellm, Skylar Gee, Gardner and Swindell topped heat race action for Thursday night’s 71-car field with Bergman, Andy McElhannon, Swindell and Balog winning the qualifying races.

Brian Bell and Willie Croft topped “C” Main action with Alex Sewell and Steven Tiner winning the “B” Mains.

Sean McClelland flipped in turn one in qualifying race action while two-time STN king Paul McMahan flipped in “B” Main competition. There were no injuries.

The 30th Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires at I-30 Speedway continues with another full slate of preliminary action on Friday night. The green flag is set to fly at 7:30 p.m.

CHRISTOPHER BELL CHARGES FROM ROW 6 TO ASCoC WIN AT NAPA WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY; SANCHEZ SWIPES SUPER STOCK WIN ON LAST CORNER MOVE

Orrville, Ohio

Saturday, October 7, 2017

By Tyler Altmyer & Mike Swanger

Becoming the 5th different Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions winner in 5 starts at 'Orrville's Historic Oval', Norman Oklahoma's Christopher Bell hard charged from the inside of row 6 to score the $5,000 on Saturday night at NAPA Wayne County Speedway. Bell took command for the 1st time on lap 22, surviving a battle with rising star, Spencer Bayston, the circuit prior. Knoxville Raceway track champion, Ian Madsen chased Bell to the checkered flag followed by Broc Martin, Cole Duncan and Rob Chaney.

For Bell, the NASCAR Camping World Truck series driver, it was his second Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions win of the season and third career win.

"I'm just really thankful for the opportunity to drive this car for Ed Neumeister and the Linders", said Christopher Bell, pilot of the Dough-Si-Dough, Linders Speed Equipment, DMI, and Fisher Racing Engines #11n. "It's a true privilege to drive this thing".

Caleb Helms and Madsen led the 26 starters to green as Madsen earned the early advantage, leading Helms and Brad Haudenschild by the flagstand to complete lap one. A red flag on lap 2 slowed action for the 1st time when green flag conditions resumed, it was Madsen returning to the top spot, now with Spencer Bayston and Broc Martin in tow. The top three raced nose to tail for the next six circuits until the caution flag returned to the speedway on lap nine, ultimately resulting in an open red flag stop that also included a chance for medics to tend to a fan in the stands.

Madsen led the field back to green, still in charge over Bayston and Martin. On lap 13, Bell drove around Martin to take third and now setting aim on Bayston and Madsen. By the mid point of the 30 lapper, the three front runners found themselves in a bumper to bumper battle for the lead and soon enough, utilizing a textbook slider through turns three and four, Bayston made a bold move and drove under Madsen to take command on lap 17. One circuit later, Bell also found room and cruised by Madsen with a perfect slide job, this time through turns one and two. With in two laps, Bell started to apply pressure on Bayston for the top spot, chasing him into traffic on lap 21. As the pair drag raced toward the flagstand to complete lap 22, Bell and Bayston made incidental contact causing the #39 of Bayston to flip wildly down the front straightaway. Bayston would walk away unharmed but his racing night was finished.

With little damage after the contact with Bayston, Bell drove on to score the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions victory unchallenged, leading the last nine laps with Madsen and Martin in tow

In a closely battled race for the Lowes Super Stocks, the top three of Daniel Sanchez, Doug Drown and Paul Holmes were never more than two car lengths apart as it all came down to the final corner when Averill Park NY driver Daniel Sanchez went down the back stretch on the final lap in third place behind Holmes and Drown. As the threesome went into turns three and four, Sanchez dove low as the other two drivers slid up the track just enough to let the 20 year old Sanchez, in his first ever trip to NAPA WCS, slide up in front of them and take his only lead of the night with the checkered flag waving. Todd Werntz would lead the first lap and then the caution flag waved for outside front row starter Dustin Daugherty hit a tractor tire and came to a stop. The race resumed for a very short time as Kyle Moore would get really sideways in turn two and got T-boned by Derek Lewton that led to Moore's car rolling over, ending up on his side with Lewton's nose of his car on top of Moore's vehicle. Both drivers were ok, but their night finished. With the race going back to green, Drown, who was driving Bob Daugherty's #21d, grabbed the lead from Werntz with Holmes in his tire tracks. Holmes would take the lead on the next circuit as he and Drown would go back and forth, side by side, lap after lap with Sanchez right behind. Another three way battle was going on for fourth as Werntz, T A Perrine and Gary Hensel Jr raced for fourth. Making the winning move in turns three and four, Sanchez the University of Northwest Ohio (UNOH) student, drove the Silly's Competition Engines, Cedar Parks and Danny Sanchez Contracting #463 into the Summit Racing victory lane, stating he "just loves to race". Drown finished second with Holmes, Werntz and Perrine following.

This wraps up the 2017 racing season at NAPA Wayne County Speedway with the Annual Awards Banquet set for Saturday, November 11th at the Pines Golf Course. For Banquet information and tickets, go to www.waynecountyspeedway.com

Butler wins Senator’s Cup at Showtime Speedway
By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
BG Products Southern Sprint Cars-St. Pete, FL.
The last time the BG Products Southern Sprint Car Shootout Series took to the track a couple of weeks ago, a late race tangle with a lapped car cost Shane Butler a likely victory at Citrus County Speedway.
In Saturday night’s running of the Second Annual Senator’s Cup at Showtime Speedway, the “Bushnell Bullet” made sure that backmarkers wouldn’t stand in his way en route to a dominating victory in the series’ biggest race of 2017.
Right as the field took the green flag, series points leader John Inman lost an engine and pulled into the infield before the field reached the first turn. Tommy Nichols took the lead at the end of the first lap, but third place starter Shane Butler only needed a couple of laps to take the top spot with LJ Grimm - who was making just his second career start in a sprint car - and Mickey Kempgens in tow.
Grimm was closing in on Butler when the caution flew for Anthony D’Alessio’s spin on lap 7. Several laps after the restart Butler began lapping cars at a torrid pace, but Grimm was able to stay directly on his tail. D’Alessio’s second spin of the night - directly in front of Grimm, brought out another caution just before the halfway point.
The caution allowed inaugural Senator’s Cup champion Sport Allen to the front of the field behind Butler, Grimm and Kempgens. Butler fought off a spirited challenge from Grimm on the restart while Allen and Kempgens battled for third.
Over the course of the second half of the race Butler skillfully weaved his way through slower traffic, increasing his lead over Grimm in the process. Just before the white flag Butler pulled off a three-wide move to get around a pair of backmarkers and went on to the victory - and claimed the trophy presented by Senator Jack Latvala (R-Pinellas County).
Grimm completed his impressive run with a second place finish. Kempgens, Allen and Dude Teate completed the top five. Butler and Carlie Yent won the heat races earlier in the evening.
The BG Products Southern Sprint Car Shootout Series returns to action next Saturday night at Citrus County Speedway.

 

Ohio’s Jack Sodeman, Jr. Carves His Way to 410 Sprint Special at Dog Hollow’s Halloween Madness

STRONGSTOWN, PA (October 7, 2017) – North Jackson, Ohio’s Jack Sodeman, Jr. carved his way to the victory in the 410 Sprint feature as part of the Halloween Madness show at Dog Hollow Speedway on Saturday. Sodeman earned himself a $3000 paycheck for the win and stated that the drivers would like to see more races at DHS. Casey Fleegle drove his PT Cruiser to his first DHS win in the DM Craig Fabrication & Welding 4 Cylinder feature. In the Street Stock main event Commodore’s Ray Hickok, Jr. haunted the field in his Ford powered machine to garner the win while Shawn Fessler, of Six Mile Run, spooked the field to win the AMSOIL Pure Stocks.

George Hobaugh and Dan Shetler led the 16-car field to the green in the 30-lap 410 Sprint feature. Hobaugh wasted no time in taking the lead and proceeded to pull away from Shetler. Jack Sodeman, Jr. too over the second spot from Shetler on lap five. A restart closed up the field and on lap eight Sodeman was the new leader. Lap after lap Sodeman pulled away from the pack. Carl Bowser overtook Hobaugh for second on laps 12. After two early yellows the race went caution free and nobody could catch the high flying Sodeman. Bowser settled for second over Adam Cruea (Troy, OH), Hobaugh (Chicora), Dan Shetler (Johnstown), AJ Flick (Apollo), Jimmy Seger (Morrisdale), Michael Bauer (Clarion), Bradley Howard (Lewisberry) and Clay Riney (Wheeling, WV). Hobaugh and Shetler were the heat winners.

Kolton Wagner led the first four laps of the DM Craig Fabrication & Welding 4 Cylinder feature. Wagner was passed by Casey Fleegle, of Friedens, who went on to lead the final fourteen laps to earn his first DHS victory. Fleegle’s win came in a PT Cruiser. Brady Miller, driving Jack Theys’ 666, was second over John Costa, Mike Phillipson, Patrick Crawford, Donald Needham, Marc Whetstone, Jr., Brooks Kauffman, Brad Lemonovich and Bryan Ickes.

Heat winner Ray Hickok, Jr. led all 16-laps to win the Street Stock feature event over Ryan Sager. Sager had pulled along side of Hickok before spinning out and going to the rear. Sager drove back through to take second but could not catch the Ford powered machine. Sager, Dave Korlewitz, Bob Egley and Tony Iarrapino.

Unbelievable is the only way to describe Shawn Fessler’s victory in the AMSOIL Pure Stock feature. Brian Savino led the first four laps before a caution flew. On the restart Savino and John Mazey made contact with both cars spinning along with Preston Imler. Those three and Jesse Fessler all dropped out. This gave the lead to Justin Queen, making his first start in 2017. Queen led five laps before being spun out by Mike Ball. Both cars received flat tires and went to the pits leaving only the 51X of Fessler on the track. The driver get two laps to replace the tire and only Ball got back out before the green flew. Fessler led the final seven laps that saw him become the fan favorite in taking the win. Mike Ball was second and the only other car running. Queen was credited with third over Shawn Thorn and Preston Imler. Savino won the lone heat.

An exciting final two laps saw Paul Crynock III take the win on the final lap of the 100 lap Enduro over Jeremy Claar, Stephen Bainey, Dalton Long and Zach Matish.

410 Sprints (16): Jack Sodeman, Jr., Carl Bowser, Adam Cruea, George Hobaugh, Dan Shetler, AJ Flick, Jimmy Seger, Michael Bauer, Bradley Howard, Clay Riney, Davey Jones, Pete Landram, Ray Sheetz, Sadie Siegel, Dan Kuriger, Darren Pifer.

 

 

Jimmy Holden Sweeps Little Guys Nationals;
Dave Shook, Brandon Blackshear, Bova, Johnson, Jeremy Weaver, Curtis J. Bish, and Evan Darby also Win. Jeff Weaver and Todd Reusser have historic Tie in 270 Micros

(Mercer, PA October 7, 2017): Jimmy Holden put a capper on an outstanding 2017 season at Mercer Raceway Park, tking both nights of the 18th Annual Little Guys Nationals. Holden's last win in the finale for the season-ending extravaganza was in 2012.

Also scoring victories were Rod Jones (Rock Concrete Supply Modified Lites), Dave Shook (Ray's Racing Collectibles and Eperthener's Auto Wreckers Mini Stocks), Brandon Blackshear (Two Barrel Econo Modifieds), Cody Bova (Bonnell's Rod Shop 305 Sprint Cars), Brent Johnson (Open Stock Cars A Main), Jeremy Weaver (RUSH Sportsmen Modifieds), Jeff Weaver and Todd Reusser (tie in the 270 Micros), Curtis J. Bish (Open Stock Cars B Main), and Evan Darby (Young Gun Junior Sprints).

Jimmy Holden, of Tiona, PA, was the winner of the Turn 4 Toilets feature for the 358 Modifieds. Holden benefited from an error by leader Phil Vigneri. The New Yorker spun in turn one while leading on lap 16.

Vigneri grabbed the lead on the opening lap, but the action was furious behind him. Andy Priest, Tommy Glenn, Lonny Riggs, and Travis Shingledecker were fighting for position. Riggs was trying to weave his way to the front when he spun in turn four. He was clobbered by Jason Sines. Neither driver was hurt, but both were eliminated from competition, as were several others.

On the restart, Vigneri remained out front, but Jimmy Holden took second and began the chase. However, Vigneri was having not trouble negotiating the trcky oval until lap 16, that is.

Holden was appointed the new leader, and that was all he needed to put the exclamation mark on the seasom. Steve Schumacher raced in second, with Travis Shingledecker in third. Phil Vigneri, who had worked his way back into the top five, began to apply the pressure.

At the finish, it was Holden, Schumacher, Shingledecker, Vigneri, and John Smith. Kyle Holden, Travis Walsh, Kevin Green, Jerry Bowser, and Matt Reeher completed the top ten.

Preliminaries went to Todd Gordon, Vigneri, and Riggs. There was no B Main.

Cody Bova, of nearby Struthers, OH, won the biggest 305 Sprint Car race of his young career, getting the second night victory for the Bonnell's Rod Shop portion of the Little Guy Nationals. Mike Marano II led at the start, but soon Devin Litwiler grabbed the lead. Litwiler had a comfortable three second lead wiped out by a caution. That enabled Bova, who was clearing a car per lap before the caution, to move forward at a quicker pace. Bova took second on lap eleven and three laps later he took the lead when Litwiler slid out over the edge of the backstretch. Matt Foos mounted an charge over the final handful of laps, but he could not catch the fleet Bova. Andy Priest was third, followed by Litwiler and Bobby Clark. Jeremy Kornbau, Mike Burkin, Marano, Gregg McCandless, and C.J. Jones completed the top en. The opening stanzas went to Clark and Litwiler.

In the A Main for the Open Stock Cars, Brent Johnson of Brookville, PA, romped to victory. Johnson got a scare on a late-race restart when Leigh Wheeler surged ahead from his third place starting spot. However, the move was nullified by a mid-pack wreck involving several cars. Johnson was better prepared for the next onslaught, and he was able to keep Wheeler at bay. Andy Thompson was second, followed by Wheeler. William Hurrelbrink and Jamie Duncan traded fourth several times, with Hurrelbrink keeping it for good. Jamie Scharba, Terry Wheeler, Pat Fielding, Gary Luzier, and Tyler Dietz completed the top ten. Tim Bish, Scharba, Johnson, and Leigh Wheeler were victors in the heat races.

Jeremy Weaver, of Franklin, PA, captured his first career RUSH Sportsman Modified feature event. Weaver held off Justin Shea, who also finished second on Friday night. Jerry Schaffer was third. Blaze Myers and Friday's winner, Chaz Wolbert, completed the top five. Kole Holden recovered from an opening lap spin to get sixth. David Kalb, Jr., Will Schaffer, A.J. Gillespie, and Chad Gump rounded out the top ten. Heat winners were Sid Unverzagt, Jr., Steve Slater, and Jerry Schaffer. There was no B Main.

Rod Jones of West Middlesex went wire to wire in the Rock Concrete Supply Modified Lite portion of the Little Guys Nationals. The race was punctuated by a red for Chris Logan who went upside down, but was not hurt, and by several yellows for lesser incidents. Brent Begolo ran second, but he had to hold off Tracy Fritter over the course of the final handful of laps. Doug Stanley and Jeff Davis completed the top five. Kenny Meadows, Shayne Meadows, Bobby Springer, Kurt Eckstrom, and Ed Mudrick were in positions six through ten. Begolo and Fritter were the heat winners. There was no B Main.

In the Mini Stocks, presented by Ray's Racing Collectibles and Eperthener's Auto Wrecking, Dave Shook outlasted Darrell Lawson, Jr., and Kyler Jolley. Mike Porterfield ran in the top five the entire way to get fourth. James Grossman was fifth. Next to cross were Kyle Donnelly, Justin Bailey, Tyler Young, William Haylett, and Tyler Fulton. The heat winners were Isaac Paden, Darrell Lawson, Jr., and Dave Shook. There was no B Main.

The Two Barrel Econo Modifieds got off to a horrific start when Steve Haefke crashed hard in turn one. Fortunately he was unhurt. But it set the tone for yet another caution-filled event. Brandon Blackshear out dueled his brother, Brad, in the early stages of the race, and held on for the win. Mitchell Wright, Josh Mueller was third. Then came Brad Blackshear and Todd Canter. Mike Boyd, Dan McDonald, Ray Gregory, Mark Titos, and Gary Miller were the next five finishers. Heat wins went to Josh Ferry and Brandon Blackshear. There was no B Main.

Jeff Weaver, of Mill Hall, PA, and Todd Reusser, of Minerva, OH, tied in the 270 Micro Sprint feature. Weaver and Reusser were fighting for the lead on the last lap, when contact was made, and they both fell back several positions. But, a caution gave them both another chance, as the restart was based on the last completed lap, Again, they went at it with hammers and tongs. They came off turn four charging to the falgstand. The officials were evenly divided as to the winner, so the race was declared to be a tie. Their one lap dash for the win was marred by a crash involving Jeff Haefke, the Friday night winner. Haefke was among the top runners when he hit the wall just a few yards from the finish line. Taking third was Luke Kroboth ahead of Brian Borawiec. The remaining cars reverted to lap 14 scoring due to the red flag for Haefke. So, fifth went to Ryan Fredericks. Sixth through tenth belonged to Dave Hawkins, Scott Hawkins, Brandon Fredericks, Tim Eakin, and Chase Metheny. The heat winners were Reusser, Borawiec, and Austin Pasquarella. The B Main winner was Levi Truitt.

The Open Stock Cars B Main was the nightcap. It was a crash-filled event with Curtis J. Bish taking his battered car across the line in first. Scott Byers was second, followed Mike Bordt, Brett McDonald, and Jason Black completing the top five. Garrett Calvert, Jesse Brock, Justin Forsythe, Bob McCann, and Steve Allison completed the top ten.

Evan Darby doubled up this weekend getting his second Young Gun Junior Sprint feature. Brother Samuel Darby gave chase. Mike Lutz, Jr. was third, ahead of Jordan Simmons, Tyler Allison, Luke Mulichak, Stone Lapcevich, Nate Hoffner, and Alston Randall. Samuel Darby was the heat winner.

Holden Scores on Night One of Little Guys Nationals; Rull, Tim Bish, Wolbert, Jeff Haefke, Ferry, Dellinger, Shaner, and Evan Darby also Win

(Mercer, PA October 7, 2017): Jimmy Holden, the reigning Turn 4 Toilets 358 Modified champion at Mercer Raceway Park, added to his list of accomplishments, taking night one of the 18th Annual Little Guys Nationals. Other victors on this bountiful night of racing were Dustin Rull, Bonnell's Rod Shops 305 Sprint Cars; Tim Bish, Open Stocks; Chaz Wolbert, RUSH Sportsmen Modifieds; Jeff Haefke, 270 Micro Sprints; Josh Ferry, Two Barrel Econo Modifieds; Alan Dellinger, Rock Concrete Supply Modified Lites; J.R. Shaner, Ray's Racing Collectibles and Eperthener's Auto Wrecking Mini Stocks; and Evan Darby, Young Gun Junior Sprints. This speedfest for 207 cars was made possible by American Racer Tires.

After methodically working his way into the top five, Jimmy Holden used two fantastic restarts to get to the front in the Turn 4 Toilets 358 Modified featured feature. The first was a powerful drive on the outside to take second away from Jeff Schaffer, Sr. on lap 12. The final move was two laps later, when he got the jump on leader Lonny Riggs.

Riggs and Schaffer Sr. were locked in a battle for the lead over the first half of the race. Riggs took over the point on the lap eleven restart. Meanwhile, Holden was quietly coming forward from his ninth place starting position. As he did so, Tom Glenn and Jason Sines remained firmly in the top five.

At the checkers, it was Holden, Riggs, Schaffer, Glenn, and Greg Martin. Phil Vigneri edged out Sines for sixth. Tommy Kristyak came from fifteenth to get eighth. Kevin Hoffman and John Smith were also top ten runners. Glenn and Holden were first to cross in their respective heats. There was no B Main.

In the Bonnell's Rod Shop 305 Sprints, the Ohio contingent took the podium spots, with Dustin Rull going flag to flag. Matt Foos came on late in the race for second, and Bobby Clark came along for third. Cody Bova, who split time between Mercer Raceway Park and the Ohio tracks in 2017, was the first local to cross the line. Gregg McCandless was fifth. Andy Priest, Devin Litwiler, C.J. Jones, Frank Neill, and Jeremy Kornbau were the next five finishers. It was bittersweet for Kornbau, who spun off the top of turn four as he was making a bid for the lead in the early stages of the race. McCandless and Litwiler copped the preliminaries. There was no B Main.

In the Open Stock Cars, Tim Bish snatched the lead away from Bobby Heim on the opening round, and held control over the course of the twenty lap affair. Heim kept former track champion Bill Hurrelbrink at bay, while Jacob Billyk and Mike Miller held top five positions throughout. The battles were for positions six through ten, with Bob McCann, Andy Thompson, Pat Fielding, Charlie McMillin, and Jamie Sharba mixing things up through most of the contest. However, when the checkers flew, it was Andy Thompson in sixth, Mark Thompson up to seventh, then McCann, Terry Wheeler, and Troy Norman completing the top ten. Hurrelbrink, Brent Johnson, and Bish were heat winners. Fielding took the B Main.

In the maiden voyage for the RUSH Sportsmen Modifieds at Mercer Raceway Park, Chaz Wolbert took the lead at the outset, and was never headed in the twenty lapper. However, Justin Shea made several challenges for the the top spot over the second half of the contest. Shea even tried to loosen him up in the final corners, but Shea could not take advantage of the bump and run tactic. Kole Holden was third, after racing up to second around the middle of the race. Brandon Ritchey and Rocky Kugel completed the top five. Sid Unverzagt, Jr., Chad Gump, Jerry Schaffer, Kyle Martel, and Alan Dellinger rounded out the top ten. Gump, Steve Slater, and Brian Shaffer topped their respective qualifiers, and Josh Deems was best in the B Main.

Jeff Heafke tracked down early leader Ryan Fredericks and went on to victory in the 270 Micro Sprint feature. Brandon Fredericks was second, with Ryan in third at the finish. Todd Reusser and Tim Eakin were fourth and fifth. John Walker, Austin Pasquerella, Brandon Hawkins, Noah Wirgini, and Chase Matheny were sixth through tenth. Dave Hawkins, Metheny, and Luke Kroboth were fastest in their heat races. There was no B Main.

Josh Ferry inherited a front row starting position in the Two Barrel Econo Modified feature when leader Gary Miller spun in turn four before the first lap was completed. Ferry made the best of the opportunity, claiming the top spot when the race officially started. Brandon Blackshear chased him the entire fifteen laps, but could not make a move for the win. Steve Haefke, Brad Blackshear, and Nate Young rounded out the top five. Josh Mueller, Mitchell Wright, Keith Felicetty, Miller, and Ray Gregory were the next five across the finish line. Heat victories went to Brandon Blackshear and Ferry. There was no B Main.

Evan Darby started on the pole and led the entire distance to claim the Young Guns Junior Sprint feature event. Mike Lutz, Jr. took second from Jordan Simmons with one lap down, and he held the position to the finish as well. Tyler Allison, Stone Lapcevich and Luke Mulichak completed the top five. Simmons was sixth despite spinning on the final lap of the contest. Jaren Dye, Samuel Darby, and Alston Randall were the remaining competitors. The heat victory belonged to Samuel Darby.

Alan Dellinger, who has dominated just about every class that he has raced in throughout Western Pennsylvania, picked up his second win of the season in the Rock Concrete Supply Modified Lites. He overtook Doug Stanley, another seasoned racer, on lap nine. The race was marred by a major crash in turn one with eleven laps completed. While heavy damage was inflicted on several machines, all of the drivers were reported to be without harm. Chris Logan grabbed third soon after racing resumed, and kept it for the remainder of the race. Rod Jones finished a notch ahead of his daughter, Vivian. Jeff Davis, Cole Petrelle, Brent Begolo, Josh Wyer, and Bobby Springer completed the top ten. Mark Marcucci, Tracy Fritter, and Shawn Sliter were tops in their respective heat races. There was no B Main.

In the finale for the Mini Stocks, offered by Ray's Racing Collectibles and Eperthener's Auto Wrecking, J.R. Shaner earned his first career win, over Dillon Speer, who was also seeking that cherished first victory. Shaner took the lead from his front row starting spot, but he had to hold off Speer, who was closing fast. Mike Porterfield was third, ahead of Jason Shaw and Rick Feely. Darrell Lawson, Jr., Chris Knight, Will Aley, Ed Haylett, and Tyler Young finished sixth through tenth. Aley, Lawson, and Shane Shook took heat wins. There was no B Main.

McMullen caps PDTR 360 Sprint Car title with A-main win

Balog, Schenck, Neau notch victories in all-Sprint Car finale

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 30, 2017 – Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh closed out his first career Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car championship in grand style by claiming his fourth A-main triumph of the season in the 2017 PDTR finale before a capacity crowd at The Plymouth Dirt Track on the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth Saturday, Sept. 30.

In the Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series headliner Bill Balog of Hartland collected his 13th A-main victory of the season en route to his eighth career IRA championship. Doug Schenck of Cottage Grove notched his eighth Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Car Series A-main triumph of the 2017 season and Mike Neau of Kenosha captured the Wisconsin-Illinois Mini Sprint Association A-main win.

The PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main featured some of the best wheel-to-wheel action of the night up in the front of the pack and throughout the field. 2010 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee got the initial jump to lead the opening lap of the 25-lap event from the pole position. As Davis worked the low groove at the head of the pack, two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Danny Schlafer, who started second, ran the high groove in an attempt to track down the leader.

Meanwhile, the third-starting McMullen worked around third starter Paul Pokorski of West Bend to seize third on lap 3. After a caution flag slowed the pace one lap later, McMullen got a big jump along the outside groove on the ensuing restart to challenge Davis and Schlafer for the top two spots.

However, Davis and Schlafer collided entering turn one, which resulted in the two winningest drivers in Midwest Sprint Car Association history sliding into the turn two wall where they collected eighth starter Jim Melis of Glenbeulah, who had been running fifth in the early stages of the race.

With three of the top-five cars eliminated from contention for the victory, McMullen inherited the lead on the ensuing restart, followed by Pokorski and 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove, who started 12th.

Schmidt got a huge run on the restart to bolt underneath McMullen in turn one on lap 5 to gain the top spot. Schmidt maintained a slight edge over McMullen over the next five laps until the leaders began to encounter lapped traffic.

On lap 11, McMullen used the slower traffic to his benefit as he dove low to sneak past Schmidt in turn two on lap 13. Schmidt battled back to regain the top spot in turn two on lap 14, but McMullen used an aggressive line around the high groove to wrestle the lead away from Schmidt again on lap 17.

Schmidt remained within striking distance, while fifth starter Kevin Karnitz of West Bend powered in two to slip past Schmidt on lap 22 and gain the runner-up spot. Out in front of the field it all McMullen, as he rolled to his 12th career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory and 17th career triumph of his Midwest Sprint Car Association career.

Along with the PDTR championship, the eighth-year 360 Sprint Car driver nailed down his third consecutive MSA title. Karnitz finished a strong second, Schmidt was third, Pokorki wound up fourth and 11th starter Justin Miller of Plymouth came home fifth.

“I’m so proud of my family-operated team, including everyone on the crew that helps to get the car ready to run well every week and all of our sponsors that make it possible to do this for an entire season,” McMullen said. “It’s been a great year. I couldn’t be happier.”

In addition to his stellar effort in the PDTR 360 Sprint Car A main, McMullen was also a key player in the 30-lap IRA 410 Sprint Car Series A main, as he started on the pole and lead the opening two circuits behind the wheel of the Bob Hood-owned 10W machine.

After McMullen outpowered outside front row starter Billy Hafemann of Cedar Grove to take the initial lead, the first of three caution flags appeared on lap 2 when Steve Meyer of Sheboygan Falls spun exiting turn two. On the restart, Justin Henderson of Tea, South Dakota charged hard into turn three to slide past McMullen and into the lead exiting turn four on lap 3.

Two laps later, Bill Balog, who started 10th, used the high groove to move into second place on lap 6. As Henderson began to encounter lapped traffic, the hard-charging Balog swiftly reeled in the leader. On lap 11, Balog ducked low to pull even with Henderson entering turn one.

One lap later, Balog powered around Henderson along the extreme outside groove to take the top spot on lap 12. Balog wasted no time in building up a big full straightaway cushion over Henderson by lap 14.

Fifth starter Scotty Thiel of Sheboygan reeled in Henderson on lap 20 and began to apply pressure for the runner-up spot. The third caution flag of the race appeared on lap 23 when Hafemann spun to a stop in turn two.

After the restarter, Balog bolted away to a half straightaway edge over Henderson, while two-time IRA champion Scotty Neitzel of Beaver Dam and 2016 IRA champ Jeremy Schultz of Beaver Dam each worked their way into the top five.

Balog cruised over the final five laps to notch his 101st career IRA A-main victory and successfully seal his eighth IRA 410 Sprint Car Series title.

“The car felt really good tonight and we were fortunate to do the right things to it for the main event to get it to victory lane,” Balog said. “Things haven’t been too great for us over the past couple of weeks, so it is very nice to get this win here tonight. It feels great to win this title with the IRA. I have to thank everyone that helps to make this team successfully, including family, crew members and sponsors. This championship was one of the harder ones because Thiel was there the whole time.”

Henderson was pleased with the quality of his car, but expressed disappointment that he was unable to carry his early momentum throughout the entire race.

“We got to running really good on the top at the start of the race, but we just seemed to slow down when we got up to the lapped cars,” Henderson said. “The crew had the car really nice for me tonight. I just didn’t get the job done.”

Thiel was satisfied with a podium finish and with his strong runner-up finish to Balog in the final IRA point standings.

“All in all, it was a good year, although I really wanted to get a win tonight,” Thiel said. “It’s certainly not too bad when you are able to end the night up on the podium with the 17B [Balog] and 83 [Henderson].”

Jimmy Sivia of Winthrop Harbor, Ill., who started on the outside of the front row, got the jump on polesitter Allen Hafford of Beach Park, Ill. to lead the first lap of the 20-lap Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Car A main.

On lap 6, Hafford used a nifty low move in turn one to seize the top spot from Sivia, while fourth starter Derek Crane of Waukegan, Ill. worked past third starter Doug Schenck and Sivia to move into second place.

The lone caution of the race appeared on lap 14 for a spin in turn two. On the restart, Schenck began to flex his muscle as he ventured the high groove to power around both Crane and Hafford with a huge run in turns three and fourth on lap 17 to gain the lead entering turn one on lap 18.

Schenck then pulled away to secure his eighth Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Car A-main victory of the 2017 season. Hafford had to settle for second, Crane was third, Tim Cox of Park City, Ill. was fourth after starting sixth and Ryan Zielski of Oconomowoc placed fifth after starting fourth.

Jordan Mattson of Milwaukee finished the season as the 2017 Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Car champion.

Polesitter Mike Neau led from the drop of the green flag of the 20-lap Wisconsin-Illinois Mini Sprint Association A-main over outside front row starter Nick Daywalt of Slinger.

Daywalt kept Neau in sight throughout the 20-lap event, but was unable to pull off a pass. Neau held on to pot a three-car-length victory over Daywalt, who secured the 2017 Wisconsin-Illinois Mini Sprint Association title. Derek Fortier finished third after starting fourth, Ron Brannam placed fourth after starting fifth and Kyle Daywalt of Germantown wound up fifth after starting sixth.

JDL Auto and Detailing of Plymouth was the evening’s trophy sponsor.

Beauchamp, Carmichael Jr., McClara and Almanza crowned points champions at LPS

By CAREY FOX

Times Sports Editor

PUTNAMVILLE — Saturday was Champions Night at Lincoln Park Speedway as Brent Beauchamp was crowned as the sprint car points champion for the second time and also claimed the A-main feature win over Jeff Bland Jr. Kenny Carmichael Jr. edged out his father by 27 points to win his first UMP Modified title at Lincoln Park Speedway. Jordan Almanza was able to hold off a late season charge by Josh Litton to repeat as the bomber points champion by a mere 31 points. Wes McClara narrowly edged out Jonny Newgent for the UMP Super Stock title by 25 points.

The sprint car feature came down to the final two laps at the Putnamville oval. For Beauchamp it proved to be the perfect way to end a season after he had previously clinched the title over Oklahoma’s Koby Barksdale.

Bland took over the lead from pole sitter Tony DiMattia and powered away to a sizable lead by the 10th lap of the 25-lap main event. Bland was setting a blistering pace, ripping along the cushion as Beauchamp gave chase before a red flag for a flip by Collin Parker halted the field. The Martinsville, Ind. driver was uninjured in the crash.

Bland would resume his chase for the win as the green flag flew and the leaders reached lapped traffic with 10 laps to go. Another red flag came out as Josh Cunningham got upside down in turn one and emerged unscathed.

Once the race resumed, Beauchamp was on Bland’s tail tank heading into the final five laps. Bland remained on the top line and appeared to have Beauchamp covered. However, with two laps left, Bland skipped over the turn four cushion and Beauchamp pounced to take over the top spot. The Avon, Ind. driver would stay out front over the last two circuits to pick up his fourth win of the season at LPS. Bland held off Shane Cockrum for the runner-up spot ahead of Barksdale and Jimmy Light.

Heltonville’s Tim Prince recorded the UMP Modified feature win after starting outside the front row and battling past Derek Groomer for the victory.

Prince and Groomer duked it out for the bulk of the 20-lap feature as Rob Brickert and RJ Pruitt were side-by-side for third-place after five laps.

The field began to string out a bit by the halfway mark as Prince settled into the lead and began to stretch out his margin. Groomer tailed by a handful of car lengths as laps ticked off with Pruitt and Jeff Deckard in tow followed by Richie Lex and Kenny Carmichael Sr.

By lap 15, Prince and secured his first LPS win of the season as Groomer, Pruitt, Deckard and Lex rounded out the top-five spots at the checkered flag.

Brazil’s David Wallen saved his best for last on Saturday as he rocketed through the final five laps of the bomber feature to score his first victory of the season on the final points night. Wallen wrapped up the seventh spot in the season points after he bolted past Litton over the final two laps to take the checkered flag.

Almanza had designs on win number five of the year as he lead through the first 10 laps of the 15-lap A-main. However, Wallen, who started 12th, had moved into a battle for second with Tom Cox. The field was bunched tightly behind Almanza with cars shuffling in all directions as Litton running a close fourth followed by Cody Wright and Kevin Kemp.

Wallen made a big charge around Almanza on lap 11 and make the pass stick as Almanza slipped behind Litton over the final two laps. Wright was able to edge into the third spot as Wallen claimed the victory. Almanza finished fourth ahead of Cox.

Steve Peeden had secured the UMP National Championship prior to Saturday, but continued to add feature wins as he got past Newgent with six laps to go in the UMP Super Stock feature.

Peeden and Newgent were door-to-door for four tightly contested laps midway through the feature before Peeden made the pass on the high side. Peeden would go on to record his 12th feature win at the Putnamville oval. Newgent picked up his 20th top-five spot ahead of McClara, who secured the points title. Bryce Shidler ran fourth ahead of David Wallen.

Saturday will feature the final race of the season with sprints, modifieds, super stocks and bombers as well as the mechanic and powder puff race.

Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt presented by ARP

MARNE, MI (October 1, 2017) – Cap Henry drove his Lane Racing, Kister-powered J&J to victory in the Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt presented by ARP COMP Cams Great Lakes Sprint Car Classic before a huge, enthusiastic crowd at Berlin Raceway Saturday night.

Henry started 4th and wasted little time getting to the front, taking the lead on lap 3.  Henry drove to victory over the Ryan Ruhl and Jordan Ryan.  While Henry looked untouchable, Ruhl was closing in on the leader quickly at the end, but ran out of laps.  Ruhl dropped to seventh from his fifth place starting position, but came to life late in the 30 lap feature and finished just 0.6 seconds behind Henry.  The only caution came out on lap 11 for a Thomas Schinderle flat tire; he rejoined the field after changing the tire.  2017 SOD Sprint Car Rookie of the Year Andrew Scheid finished 7th to win the KSE Hard Charger Award for advancing 7 positions. 

Heat races were rough.  Veteran Marl Aldrich caught the front straightaway wall in the 1st heat and did a series a hard flips to put an end to his night.  Jared Horstman clipped a turn 3 tire marker in the 2nd heat and flipped, bringing his night to an end.  In the 3rd heat, Brett Mann made hard contact with a tire marker in turn 2, destroying his #19.  All drivers were okay.

The well-prepared temporary Berlin Raceway dirt surface held up extremely well under the pressure of a big program of 28 SOD sprints, 28 AELMT late models, and 30 AEMODT modifieds.

The CCGLSCC closes an exciting 2017 Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt presented by ARP season.  Next on tap is the 2017 awards banquet that will be held Saturday, November 11 at the Battle creek Holiday Inn, Battle creek, Michigan.

Bayston Doubles Down, Takes Meents Memorial Win

Belleville, IL - Building on a solid victory from the previous night, Spencer Bayston capitalized on Logan Seavey's misfortune to claim his second POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League victory of the weekend. Bayston's Belle-Clair win was his ninth career, capturing the 13th Annual Charlene Meents Memorial presented by Priority Aviation Services LLC, co-sanctioned by the POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League.

Starting inside row two, Bayston faded early as Tucker Klaasmeyer took the lead with Logan Seavey in tow. By lap seven Seavey overtook Klaasmeyer and appeared to be the dominant force of the 30 lap main event. Midway through the race, tenth place starter Tanner Thorson was working inside the top three when contact from behind spun the Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports entry, forcing Thorson to restart at the tail.

Now back up to third, Bayston battled with rookie Zeb Wise for the second positon, officially securing second on lap 24. Still riding the treacherous Belle-Clair curb, Seavey caught the lip and then the wall exiting turn four on lap 25, taking a wild ride and finding himself going from the lead to the business end of a wrecker.

Inheriting the lead from Seavey's misfortune, Spencer Bayston was able to fend off Tucker Klaasmeyer and Andrew Felker for the remaining five laps. Zeb Wise finished fourth with Nick Knepper rounding out the top five.

"It was obviously a good weekend," commented Spencer Bayston. "This is a place that I really, really enjoyed when I first started running midgets. The bullring style. This is a cool event. Thank you POWRi, thank you Keith Kunz Motorsports, TRD, Toyota Racing. It's an honor to win one for this team."

"I finally found my rhythm on the top and then when I did, Spencer came and pinched me in the wall pretty good," Tucker Klaasmeyer said. "Kind of wished I would have returned the favor on that one a little quicker, but anyways congrats to those guys. That's two nights in a row they won like that. We'll try again in a couple of weeks."

"It's been a while," stated Andrew Felker. "We were probably a sixth or seventh place car there, but got lucky when Tanner spun there. Kind of came in there at the end and followed Tucker. We'll definitely take third place. Hopefully we'll keep building on these and pick up a few more spots."

Bayston Added to Repeat Winner List for Knepper Memorial Victors

Belleville, IL - Lebanon, Indiana's Spencer Bayston took the checkers with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League for the 26th Annual Knepper Memorial at Belle-Clair Speedway, fending off teammate Tanner Thorson to claim the win. Bayston adds his name to the short list of repeat Knepper Memorial winners with his first Knepper victory coming in 2015 and now, tonight's victory.

Leading the field to green, Aidan RoosEvans shared the front row with Colby Copeland for a career-first highpoint honor with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League. At the drop of the green flag, Jason McDougal ended up spun on the back straight at the exit of turn two causing a complete restart. With the field lined back up, RoosEvans led the way for the next seven laps until relinquishing the lead to Bayston off turn four following a restart.

Taking over the top position on lap eight, Bayston had to fend off several challenges from teammate Tanner Thorson for the remaining 22 laps. Working the top side, Bayston saw Thorson roll the bottom for nearly the rest of the race patiently waiting for Bayston to make a mistake. But, the mistake never came, allowing Bayston to capture his eighth career POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League victory, his third of 2017. Tanner Thorson took second with Nick Knepper rounding out the top three. Tucker Klaasmeyer finished fourth with Daniel Adler taking fifth.

"What they did to rework it, at first I thought, man, this is going to take a while to widen out, but it ran pretty well those first few laps and then it spread out and we were able to really get to racing," said Spencer Bayston. "Once I got to the lead on that restart, I saw Tanner on the bottom and he was laying that pressure down. I was just trying to have tunnel vision and be focused, but every time we'd come off the corner, he'd be drag racing me. He's a really good driver and I'm just happy to be on the podium right now. Hat's off to Belle-Clair for working hard on getting a good racetrack. It's an honor to win this race and win it for this race team."

"We were a little bit better there on the bottom than we were on the top," commented Tanner Thorson. "Halfway through the race I got into the wall and it made it a little bit hard to drive, but hat's off to Spencer, he did an awesome job out there. These guys work their butts off in the shop every day and it takes a lot to house these cars. I love coming to this place."

"Tonight was quite the night for us," stated Nick Knepper. "We broke the brake line twice, in the heat race and in hot laps. We didn't know what was causing it. Luckily we got through the heat and started up front in the feature and we were able to keep pace with these guys. It really gives me confidence going into tomorrow night that we can come out and do this and maybe improve by a couple of positions."

MACEDO AND THORNE TAKE WINS AT CANADIAN SPRINT CAR NATIONALS

By Tommy Goudge (September 16, 2017) Ohsweken, Ontario - 80 drivers signed in to race at the 13th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals presented by Arrow Express on Saturday. Carson Macedo and Mike Thorne visited Lucas Oil Victory Lane. CANADIAN SPRINT CAR NATIONALS 360 SPRINT CARS (58 ENTRIES) Carson Macedo won the $12,000 top prize at the 13th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals (Photo by Dale Calnan/image Factor Media). Sam Hafertepe, Jr. and Carson Macedo appeared set to decide who would win the 13th edition of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals between themselves, but Jordan Thomas did more than just keep the two stars honest; Thomas took the runner-up spot away from Hafertepe with three laps to go in the 35 lap feature, and tried to run Macedo down for the win. Macedo was not to be denied though, and became the first Californian to win the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals, while Thomas settled for the runner-up spot, and Hafertepe held on to finish third. Ryan Susice moved up steadily to finish fourth, while a late charge moved Dylan Westbrook from eighth to fifth during the last two laps.

Hafertepe took the early lead with Macedo in tow, but the race slowed after just three laps when Jonathan Preston, Dain Naida, and Bryan Howland were caught in a jingle. Naida was able to keep rolling and Howland restarted the race at the tail, but Preston's car suffered damage which ended his race. Double-file restarts were new to the Nationals in 2017, and the new wrinkle made things interesting when the green flag flew again with 32 laps left. Shawn Donath attempted to get past Macedo and Hafertepe on this restart, but the two front row starters were able to break away again.

The leaders encountered traffic with ten laps complete, and Macedo made small gains on the leader as Hafertepe tried to get through the congestion. Before the traffic could play a larger role, the race was stopped when Dain Naida crashed hard in the first turn; Fortunately Naida was able to climb uninjured from his heavily-damaged machine. Macedo and Donath used the ensuing double-file restart to make runs at Hafertepe's lead, and those three briefly raced three-wide out of turn two. Macedo was able to steal the lead, but Hafertepe fought back to retake the top spot on lap 16. Jordan Thomas also made his move into the top three during this stint, passing Dustin Daggett and Shawn Donath in quick succession.

Hafertepe, Macedo, and Thomas began to encounter traffic again as the race reached the halfway point. The top three drivers were very close together with ten laps left, while Jared Horstman was making gains on them until briefly slipping off the edge of the track. Hafertepe doggedly continued to hold the lead despite a partially deflated right rear tire, but a brief pocket of open track allowed Macedo a chance to make the winning move in the bottom groove with six laps remaining. Thomas was subsequently able to pin Hafertepe behind a lapped car and take the second spot, but Macedo threaded his way through traffic and locked down the $12,000 USD win.

"For awhile there I couldn't decide what I was going to do," Macedo noted after the race. "I got my wing back a little bit and got settled down and got patient. Sam's a hell of a racer and just to compete with him at this level is pretty awesome."

While the win was Macedo's first at Ohsweken, it was far from the first one for the Joe Gaerte Racing team; Shane Stewart drove the #3g to three CSCN victories before moving on to the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series with Larson/Marks Racing.

"This 3g team is awesome," Macedo exclaimed. "These guys - Tim Norman, Cindy Norman, Joe Gaerte[...]this car is always fast and I'm just the lucky guy who gets to drive it. (Ohsweken Speedway) is awesome. If I could race here all the time, I definitely would. I do this for a living so I travel around and I get to race at a lot of places and have a lot of fun, so that's what it's all about. Thanks to these fans for coming out. This place is awesome and I can't wait to come back."

Despite finishing second, Jordan Thomas was ecstatic with his team's results over the weekend.

"This is a win for us, and I'm at a loss for words," Thomas revealed. "Beating the best in the business with Hafertepe behind us second to Maceo, it's...I'm at a loss for words."

Hafertepe wasn't quite so happy with third, but the 2011 CSCN winner was philosophical after the race.

"Hat's off to Carson - he drove a really good race," Hafertepe observed. "We fought a little bleeder issue there right before the A (feature) started and we thought we had it fixed, and then just later in the race we had about nine pounds there in the right rear. With the track condition that it was, we weren't going to get it done like that. I felt like we had the car to beat and flexed a lot of strength all weekend long, but Carson's a good racer and we raced real hard and clean and he deserved to win tonight."

NOTES: -66 cars filed pre-entries for the 13th edition of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals, with 58 officially competing on Saturday night. Engine problems and crashes on Thursday and Friday kept a number of drivers out of competition on Saturday; The most notable absence was that of three-time CSCN winner Steve Poirier, who suffered a back injury in a crash during the Night Before the Nationals event on Friday. -Also absent from competition on Saturday were long-time CSCN competitors Glenn Styres and Rick Wilson. Styres is still feeling the effects of a crash earlier in the summer, while Wilson was in attendance as a crew member. Wilson had attempted to qualify for all 12 previous editions of the Nationals, but was unable to bring his car and race team this year. While he did participate in time trials, Jared Zimbardi is also recovering from a recent crash and scratched from the remainder of the evening. -Bryan Howland and Dain Naida both looked to finish their Sprint Car careers on high notes, but neither were able to finish. Howland's night ended with engine problems on lap five, while Naida brought out the red flag with a hard crash on lap 12. -Drivers from two Canadian provinces and eight American states attempted to qualify for the 13th edition of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals. -Nine drivers competed in the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals for the first time, including Davie Franek who earned the Fine Touch Collision Rookie of the Nationals Award. -Sam Hafertepe Jr. collected the Grisdale Racing Products Fastest Qualifier Award, while Steve Lyons claimed the Inside Track Motorsport News Fastest Canadian Qualifier award. -Davie Franek started 26th and finished 11th in the A-Feature to claim the Grisdale Racing Products Hard Charger Award. -Ryan Ruhl and his team were chosen for Corr/Pak Merchandising “Bill Peer Memorial” Best Appearing Car Award honours. -Ryan Coniam's #5w team was awarded the Travis Rutz Long Tow Award presented by Best Western Cairn Croft Hotel. Originally from Burlington, Ontario, Coniam now resides in Colorado, while his car and race team are based in North Carolina. -George Suprick and Yan Bilodeau split the Eagle Chassis bonus from Mike Emhof Motorsports. -Coleman Gulick and Jeff Cook earned Mach 1 Chassis bonuses, while Gulick also received a bonus for driving the highest-finishing Mach 1 Chassis. -The highest-finishing drivers from each of the six official CSCN affiliate sanctions earned bonus prize money, including Paul Kinney (Empire Super Sprints), Jared Horstman (Great Lakes Super Sprints), Dustin Daggett (National Racing Alliance), Dylan Westbrook (Ohsweken Speedway 360 Sprint Cars), Jordan Thomas (Patriot Sprint Tour), and Shawn Sliter (Southern Ontario Sprints). STRICKLAND’S GMC CRATE SPRINT CARS (22 ENTRIES) Mike Thorne claimed the second Crate Sprint Car feature win of his career. (Photo by Dale Calnan/Image Factor Media). Although the boxscore shows Mike Thorne leading all but one of the 20 laps in the Crate Sprint Car feature, the win did not come easily to the former Thunder Stock champ. Thorne fought off challenges from several drivers to claim the second Crate Sprint Car feature win of his career. Polesitter Eric McGlone led the first lap and raced side-by-side with Thorne several times through the first half of the final Crate Sprint Car feature of the season.

The first yellow flag of the race flew on the third lap, as Aaron Turkey and Brian Nanticoke crashed in turn one; Both were uninjured, but Turkey's car was damaged too much to continue. Thorne and McGlone continued their race for the lead after the race restarted, while a good race also developed for the third spot between Jesse Costa and Jerry Hill. McGlone was again wheel-to-wheel with Thorne at the halfway signal, but Thorne used traffic to slip away while Costa and DeMan moved into second and third. With five laps left, Costa looked ready to pounce on Thorne until a collision between Hannah Ferrell and Josh Hansen brought out a yellow flag.

Costa was unable to get back into his rhythm after the race restarted and gave up the second spot to DeMan, but Thorne thwarted DeMan's plans for last-lap heroics by diving low in the third turn. DeMan settled for the runner-up position in his final race for the Barr Motorsports team, while Costa held onto third. McGlone and Holly Porter rounded out the top five. Heat race wins went to Mike Thorne, Eric McGlone, and Shone Evans.

"On that restart I saw (DeMan) was in third," Thorne noted. "I wanted to get a good restart...I saw him out of the corner of my eye down in (turn) one and wanted to make sure I covered the bottom down (in turn three) - It worked out good!"

Despite the runner-up finish, DeMan leaves the Crate Sprint Cars as the division's all-time feature win leader. The standout driver on both dirt and pavement will take his talents to the 360 Sprint Car division next season.

"I can't say enough about this track, the facility, the safety crew, the friendliness," DeMan exclaimed. "I came from asphalt and I didn't know anybody here. Everybody was so welcoming and I've had so much fun. All the competitors in this Crate division are top notch. I've had a lot of fun in this division and I can't wait to go 360!"

Although he had a chance to win, Costa was happy to get on the podium after some bad luck earlier in the season.

"We're really pleased," declared Costa. "With the way the year started off, we've been running pretty good now at the end of the year, so we're looking forward to next year now." OHSWEKEN SPEEDWAY STATISTICAL REPORT

TOUROND WINS SECOND ANNUAL FRED RANNARD, SR. MIDGET CLASSIC

Racing in front of the largest championship night crowd in Agassiz Speedway history, Greg Tourond was victorious Saturday night in the Second Annual Fred Rannard, Sr. Midget Classic.

The 29 year old, third generation driver, from Langley, B.C. won $1,500 in the race that featured the Washington Midget Racing Association and the Agassiz midgets. It was the highest paying pavement midget race on the west coast this year. Tourond was also crowned season champion at Agassiz for the first time after receiving rookie of the year honors last season.

Rob Rannard waved the green flag to start the feature race and it was defending Agassiz champion and former WMRA champ, Troy Globe of Abbotsford that led the first half of the 30 lap main event. Tourond, who started fifth, got by Globe as they raced through turns one and two on lap 15 on his way to the victory. Globe finished second for a $600 payday and Marysville, Washington's Seidelman was third earning $500. Everett, Washington's Kenny Woods was fourth and Abbotsford's Billy Bell was fifth.

Wayne Goodwin, Lee Halladay, Dana Glenn, Keith Davidson and Jeff Bird rounded out the top ten finishers. Tourond also received the Speedmart hard charger of the race award.

Seidelman, who had won 13 straight WMRA races and four in a row at Agassiz also got $100 for fast time from Tron Fabrication after he broke his own track record with a lap of 12.837. He has now won six consecutive WMRA titles.

In other action Saturday night it was late model rookie of the year Chase Schmidt winning his first main event while Dave Hemrich took home his eighth championship. In the street stock division Russ Luke won for the sixth time in eight points races on the way to his third straight championship. The mini stock division saw Joey Silas win for the fourth time this year but it was Travis George pulling off the rare feat of winning rookie of the year and season champ all at once. In the hornet class Matt Ostermeyer picked up his third win of 2017 and Dillon Gordon won his first championship. Agassiz Speedway will open the 2018 season on April 28.

Kyle Smith Tames the Track of Champions

It was an eventful evening for the return of the Super Gen Products/Champion Power Equipment CRSA Sprint Tour at Fonda Speedway. When the final checkers flew, it was Great Barrington Massachusett's Kyle Smith who would come out on top and be able to grace Fonda Speedway Victory Lane with his presence.

The first turn of the first lap of the first heat race would see a massive incident that would involve four competitors. Brett Jaycox, Mark Taylor, Dave Ferguson, and series points leader Thomas Radivoy would all be involved in a violent pile-up that would end between turns one and two of the Track of Champions. Ferguson sustained the worst of the damage with a totally destroyed 45 Speedy's Cleaners car. He walked away from the incident without any serious injuries. Brett Jaycox had to retire his 07 Outlaw Motorsports entry for the evening. He escaped serious injury as well. Thomas Radivoy would be able to come back and salvage whatever points he could in the main event. He would do this with the aid of a borrowed wing from Geoff Quackenbush. Mark Taylor was also able to return for the main event later on in the evening.

Modified Competitor Tyler Boniface and Kyle Smith would bring the field down to the green flag for the start of the 20 lap A- main event. Smith would quickly take command of the lead early in the event. Mike Kiser, from Cooperstown, seemed to have an early short-run advantage in his 99 Kiser Sand and Gravel car. But he would eventually be overtaken by Jeff Trombley, in the 3A Warren's Auto Body Car as well as a strong pass from Josh Pieniazek.

Warren Connecticutt's Peter Dance would spin his RCE Machine Works 56D with six laps remaining in the feature. This would bring out the only yellow of this event. When green flag racing resumed, Kyle Smith would be able to set sail and power his D&D Auto Supply, Taylor Propane, John Matrafailo-owned 17 car to Fonda Speedway Victory Lane. This would be his second feature win of the 2017 season. His first win came at Afton Motorsports Park earlier in the season.

Jeff Trombley would work his way to a second place finish. This would make Trombley the Kennedy's Towing Northway 90 Series Points Champion.

Josh Pieniazek would earn his way to the podium with a third-place run in his JGS Hauling & Recycling number 9 entry. This also earned Josh the Powdertech Coatings Hard Charger Award. He would work his way to third from tenth starting position.

The Super Gen Products/Champion Power Equipment CRSA Sprint Tour continues their journey with two more events on the 2017 season. They stop at Afton Motorsports Park on Friday, October 6th as part of the Short Track Super Nationals Weekend. The tour will then finish the season on Saturday, October 21st at Orange County Fair Speedway during Eastern States Weekend. Fans and teams can go to crsasprints.com for more information on these events and the close-out of the 2017 season.

Virginia Sprint Series Race # 21 Saturday September 23rd 2017

IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Series Natural Bridge Speedway Natural Bridge Va.

Scott Lutz Falls for the Bridge The fall season started this weekend and the mountains of Virginia are a popular place to visit and Scott Lutz traveled from Pennsylvania to take in the sights and take the win. The heats started the night with Troy Severin and Tony Harris taking wins. The feature was called to the line with Chris Ware and Bill Rice pacing the field to green with Rice out first. Rice loves the high line and he was trying to run away as Troy Severin was quickly up to second and everybody else was using all three grooves to run them down. Rice continued when the pace slowed for a broken car then it was back on with Rice and Severin still up from as Scott Lutz was closing in. With ten laps to go Lutz made his way to second and Rice was starting to get a little loose on exit but looked like he may hold on. With traffic ahead Rice had to change up lines and Lutz was using the low line to really close in and with four to go to the front he went. Lutz pulled a few car lengths out and raced to his second VSS win of the year. At the line it was Scott Lutz, Bill Rice, Troy Severin, Anthony Linkenhoker, Tony Harris, Jeff Taylor, Chris Ware, Glenn Worrell, Neil Sandridge, Daren Bolac, Jack Rice, French Grimes jr. , Tom Humphries, Mike Leraas and Brian Lawson. Next week is the season finale at Shenadoah Speedway in Shenandoah, Va. on Saturday night September 30th.

Schneiderman, Oliver Jr., Becerra, Stensland and Fenton Score Season Finale Wins at 34 Raceway

by Brian Neal
West Burlington, IA (Saturday, September 23, 2017) - One would have thought it was a mid summer night instead of early autumn on Saturday, September 23rd at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, as temperatures hoovered around the low 90's. The on track action was just a hot, as the weather on this season finale night was brought to you by Mepo Truck and Trailer Repair out of Mediaplois, Iowa. It was also the season championship event for the Shottenkirk.com Sprint Invaders and Crazy Coyote Mini Hauler Trucks.

The first feature to take to the track was the 15 lap Casebine Credit Union SportMods, with Randy LaMar and Brandon Setser drawing the front row. Setser would take advantage of his starting spot to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Austen Becerra and LaMar. Becerra tried to look under Setser for the top spot over the next seven laps, but Setser was able to hold him off on each lap. That was until lap 9 when Setser drifted high coming off turn 4, which allowed Becerra to slip past for the lead. Setser would follow in Becerra's tire tracks over the final 6 laps, but wasn't able to get by in the caution free event. As Becerra went on to win his fourth in a row and ninth overall at 34 Raceway, and it was also his second win of the weekend after winning the $2,000 special on Friday night in Davenport, Iowa. Setser settled for 2nd, Adam Birck was 3rd, Brandon Lennox came from 12th to finish in 4th, with Andrew Burk rounding out the top 5.

Up next was the 20 lap Sunoco Fuel Mod Lites national event, with twenty-five of the twenty-six starters taking the green flag. Andy Sherley and Scott Naggatz would lead the field to that green, as a result of their one two place finish in the dash earlier in the night. Sherley took advantage of his starting spot to grab the lead on lap 1 over Naggatz and Ty Short. While the top two cars tried to pull away from the field, the action behind them went two and three wide at times. But that action up front was slowed for the first time on lap 4, when Wyatt Wilkerson, who who was running 6th, spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Sherley moved back out front, with Jason Masengarb, who started 6th, and Travis Stensland over taking Naggatz for second and third. Stensland was able to wrestle the runner up spot away from Masengarb on lap 8, and then went to work on Sherley for the top spot. Coming off turn 4 to complete lap 10 Stensland was able to slip under Sherley for the lead. But before the lap was scored complete the red flag came out, which gave Sherley the lead back for the restart. Jimmy Halcomb would go for a nasty ride in turn 4 to bring out the red. He would climb from his car okay.

The restart saw Stensland use the bottom of the track to grab the lead away from Sherley, with Masengarb and Mike Morrill, who started 11th, close behind. While Stensland set the pace out front, Sherley had to work to hold back Masengarb and Morrill for the second spot. On lap 15 Masengarb was able to get the second spot from Sherley, but going down the backstretch the following lap Masengarb pulled into the infield with mechanical troubles. This would give Morrill the second spot, as he took up the challenge of Stensland for the lead over the final 4 laps. But Stensland was able to hold him off to claim his first win of the season at the track, that was worth $500. Morrill was 2nd, Randy Bryan finished 3rd after starting in 9th, Sherley was 4th, with Michael Dominguez coming home in 5th.

Drake Fenton and Dylan Reverend led the field to green in the 12 lap Crazy Coyote Mini Hauler Truck feature, with Fenton jumping out front to lead lap 1 over Reverend and John Helenthal. Just as Fenton started to pull away from the rest of the field, the red flag appeared to slow him down. Reverend got upside down in turn 2 and collected Brian Tipps to bring out the red. He would climb from his truck okay. On the restart Fenton jumped back out front, with Tim Wagner and Helenthal close behind. Fenton would pull away late in the race to go on to score his fourth win of the season at 34 Raceway, which also helped his claim the track championship. Wagner was 2nd, Lance Applegarth was 3rd, Helenthal was 4th, with Lake Carlson finishing in 5th.

Up next was the 15 lap Pepsi Stock Car feature, with Jake Wenig and John Oliver Jr. drawing the front row. Oliver Jr. would take advantage of his starting spot to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Wenig and Chad Krogmeier. As Oliver Jr. and Wenig started to pull away from the rest of the field, the battle for third was heating up between Krogmeier, Dean Kratzer and Dane Fenton. Disaster would strike that battle on lap 9 when Kratzer spun in turn 4 from contact from Fenton to bring out the yellow. On the restart the yellow light would come back on, as contact from Wenig sent Krogmeier spinning in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. The following restart saw Oliver Jr. jump back out front, with Fenton and Wenig coming from the back to follow close behind. Oliver Jr. would go on to lead the final five laps unchallenged to claim his sixth win of the season at the track. Fenton was 2nd, Wenig was 3rd, Krogmeier was 4th, with Kratzer completing the top 5.

The final feature to take to the track on the night was the 30 lap Shottenkirk.com Sprint Invaders, with Dave Getchell and Ryan Jamison making up the front row. But it was third place starter Josh Schneiderman who grabbed the lead on lap 1 over Jamison and Jon Agan. The action up front was slowed for the first time on lap 2, when Paul Nienheiser, who was running 4th, spun off the top of the track in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Schneiderman moved back out front, with Jamison and Agan close behind. One lap later, lap 4, Agan slipped past Jamison to take over the runner up spot and then went to work on Schneiderman for the top spot. But Disaster would strike Agan on lap 8, when he spun off the track in turn 2 to bring out the second yellow of the race. Once again Schneiderman jumped back out front on the restart, with Jamison and Cody Wehrle following. While Josh Schneiderman set the pace out front, all eyes were on Jarrod Schneiderman, who started 13th, and Nienhiser who were working their way towards the front. On lap 19 Jarrod Schneiderman slipped past Jamison for second, while Nienhiser was back up to 6th. But even with heavy lapped traffic there was no catching Josh Schneiderman, who went on to win his first Sprint Invaders feature of the season. Nienhiser came back to finish 3rd, Wehrle was 4th, with Jamison coming home in 5th. Agan, who recovered from his spin on lap 8 and finished 9th, would come away with the Sprint Invaders title.

Not only was this the final event of the 2017 season at 34 Raceway, it also brought an 11 year ownership of the track by Jeff and Amy Laue, Scott and Lorrie Parish, and Tom and Sue Bowling to an end. As Amy made the announcement to everyone in attendance on Saturday that the track has been sold to Brad Stevens. Brad is the master mind behind the "Slocum 50" race, which honors his great friend Benton Slocum. Who was killed in a pit accident at the track back in 2005. Stevens told the crowd that very little changes would be made for the 2018 season.

Cory Eliason sweeps the Nor-Cal Posse Shootout presented by Autism Awareness at Placerville Speedway

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – September 23, 2017…Kingsburg’s Cory Eliason and car owner Rod Tiner have proven to be a potent combo in 2017 and that continued at the inaugural Nor-Cal Posse Shootout presented by Autism Awareness, with the duo claiming a clean sweep of the weekend at Placerville Speedway.

Eliason dominated the opening prelim on Friday, before capturing an exciting 40-lap finale on Saturday evening, earning the $7500 grand prize. Combining Friday’s winnings and his Posse Pole Shuffle winnings each night, the Central Valley wheel-man walked away with $11,300 for the weekend.

“It feels great to come out here and win the first ever Nor-Cal Posse Shootout,” commented Eliason in victory lane to track announcer Brad Kennedy. “Rod Tiner and I have been really fast all year so it’s pretty awesome to get another victory. It took me a long time to finally win at Placerville Speedway and now we have three in a row so that’s pretty special. I want to thank everyone for putting on this event because it was a lot of fun and hopefully it gets bigger and bigger.”

Elk Grove’s Greg Decaires was making his final Placerville Speedway start as a full-time driver and jumped into the lead at the waving of the green flag in the feature. Early on Eliason hounded his rear bumper looking for a way by, which finally came on lap 11 when he charged around the outside of turn four to take command. Just after that a caution flag waved that set up a restart where Hanford’s DJ Netto carved his way into second.

Once lapped traffic came into play after the halfway point things heated up and fans were treated to some tremendous racing on the tight quarter-mile. Netto closed in ever so slightly while running the low line and as Eliason got bound up on the cushion it gave him the chance to make his move. On lap 29 Netto sliced into the lead as the crowd came to their feet. Eliason didn’t give up however, and stayed right with the Tri-C Manufacturing No. 3c machine, before making the move on lap 32 to regain the top-spot.

Netto then returned the favor to take the lead once again, but a caution waved that saved the position for Eliason. After going back green Fresno’s Dominic Scelzi then battled hard with Netto and took over the runner up spot on lap 35 while running the high-side. Up front it was all about Eliason though, who took the checkered flag to claim his third straight victory at the Placerville Speedway.

Scelzi crossed the stripe in second to cap a great weekend that also saw him earn the $600 Brad Sweet Racing/ ADCO Driveline and Custom Exhaust fast time award on Friday, along with a fourth place effort in the opening night A-main. Roseville’s Sean Becker had a strong run in the feature on Saturday to come from row five and make a thrilling final corner pass up top to claim the final spot on the podium. Netto and Decaires rounded out the top-five.

Completing the top-10 were Watsonville’s Justin Sanders, Visalia’s Steven Tiner, Princeton’s Mason Moore, Hanford’s Mitchell Faccinto and 21st starter Colby Copeland of Roseville, who took home the $300 hard charger award courtesy of Kevin and Kim Urton.

The $250-to-win Posse Pole Shuffle courtesy of Kyle Larson Racing was captured by Cory Eliason. The B-main was claimed by Tony Gualda. The first set of heat races were picked off by Willie Croft, Mason Moore, Jodie Robinson and Mitchell Faccinto, while the second set of heats were won by Ryan Bernal, Chase Majdic, Shane Hopkins and Colby Copeland. A total of 42 different Winged 360 Sprint Car entrants competed at the inaugural running of the Nor-Cal Posse Shootout presented by Autism Awareness.

Scott Kinney made a late-race pass to claim victory in the companion BCRA Midget Lite feature over Hunter Kinney, Terry Bergstrom, Brent Sexton and Emilee Lindgren. Nineteen BCRA Midget Lites were in action on Saturday with heat races picked up by Scott Kinney, Hunter Kinney and Brent Sexton. Hunter Kinney won opening night on Friday.

The Placerville Speedway will now close the 2017 racing season this coming Saturday September 30 with the Tilford Tribute featuring Ltd. Late Models, Pure Stocks, Sport Mods and Mini Trucks. More info can be found at http://www.placervillespeedway.com/

 

 

Bland comes home with sprint car win at Lincoln Park Speedway

- Putnamville oval hosted weekend doubleheader

By CAREY FOX

Times Sports Editor

PUTNAMVILLE – As the 2017 season winds down at Lincoln Park Speedway, the Putnamville oval hosted a doubleheader weekend with a full slate of racing action.

On Saturday night, Jeff Bland Jr. capped a big weekend with a sprint car victory that came on the heels of a win Friday at Bloomington Speedway. Oklahoma’s Tyler Thomas was the winner on Friday night at LPS. Cole Parker took the UMP Modified victory Friday night with RJ Pruitt recording Saturday’s win. Steve Peeden picked up UMP Super Stock win number 12 this season on Saturday with Wes McClara winning the weekend opener. In the bomber division it was Jordan Almanza with the opening night win and Josh Litton claiming night number two.

Bland would set a blistering pace after a first lap caution was brought out as Travis Berryhill and Shane Cockrum were knocked out of competition. Once the field took the green flag, Bland began building a comfortable lead ahead of the field.

Brent Beauchamp and Kent Christian were side-side early with Jadon Rogers and Tim Creech in tow within the top-five spots.

By lap 10, Bland had reached lapped traffic and began sorting the back markers out. However, Beauchamp was rocking the top side and began clicking off car lengths on each lap in pursuit of Bland. On lap 12, Beauchamp had closed to within five car lengths before a caution slowed the field.

On lap 15, Bland got a strong restart ahead of Beauchamp to hold on to the point as Christian settled into third ahead of Matt McDonald, Creech and Zach Hampton.

A final caution reset the field as Brady Ottinger slipped the cushion in turn three and slid to a stop under a billboard on the outside of the track. When the green flag waved, Beauchamp’s pursuit would end as he pulled off into the infield as Bland cruised to win by nearly a half lap over Creech, Christian, Hampton and McDonald.

In the UMP Modified main event, Jay Humphrey Jr. started on the pole and led the first half of the race as Pruitt ran alongside the Bloomington native. The pair put on an entertaining battle through the first 10 laps, extending a solid lead as the field strung out behind them. Cole Parker was a distant third in a bunched group that also included Brent Hudson, Rob Bricket and Jeff Deckard.

By lap 13, the leaders reached lapped traffic and Pruitt had held a slight lead over Humphrey for two laps. Humphrey went to the bottom line before a caution came out at the halfway mark.

On the restart, Pruitt held fast to the top spot and briefly opened up a five car length lead as Humphrey went back to challenge on the high side. Pruitt was able to stave off the challenge over the final five laps to pick up the win as Humphrey settled for second. Deckard battled up to third ahead of Brickert and Hudson.

In the UMP Super Stock feature, Peeden and McClara went at it for the top spot for several early laps before Peeden took over the point. Once he had taken over the top spot, he did not look back in cruising away for a solid win to maintain his national points lead.

Jonny Newgent moved up after battling past McClara over the final five laps to finish second as Kris Starks placed fourth ahead of Paul Wright.

In the final feature of the evening, David Bumgardner led the field early on as Litton gave chase through the first five laps. Megan Cavaness moved into contention ahead of David Wallen and Tom Cox.

Litton moved into a side-by-side fight for the top spot with Bumgardner on lap 10, but Bumgardner would pull off the track moments later with mechanical issues. With Litton solidly in front, Cavaness quickly chased him down and took over the lead with four laps remaining. As Cavaness came into turn one, a lapped car cut down the available racing lines. With Litton closing in, Cavaness made contact with the lapped car, spinning it and bringing out a caution. The ruling was that Cavaness had caused the caution, which sent the No. 5c to the tail as Litton took over the top spot and stayed there over the final couple of laps.

Litton claimed the victory ahead of Almanza, Cox, Glen Ogden and Kyle Prince.

Jason Setser won night two of the UMRA TQ Midget Nationals at LPS and Ryan Barr was the winner of the Midwest Mini Sprint Association feature.

This weekend will be the final points night of the year with sprint cars, UMP Modifieds, super stocks and bombers.

DROWN MANAGES WIN IN DON GROSS MEMORIAL AT NAPA WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY; PALKER PILOTS TO OVSCA WIN; MOORE & WES STALEY GO FLAG TO FLAG FOR BLOW OUT WINS

Orrville, Ohio

Saturday, September 23, 2017

By Mike Swanger

The 5th annual Ohio Dirt Blowout presented by the Kar Connection is now in the books with some great racing action recorded at NAPA Wayne County Speedway. For the Kar Connection Super Late Models, their action started on Friday night as Mike Davis would set fast time at 16.967 and J R Gentry and Doug Drown would win the heat races but Gentry did not cross the scales after his heat race giving the win to Shane McLoughlin and Gentry would have to start on the tail of the feature. In Saturday's action, Drown would win the Tye Twarog Motorsports Hans Gross Memorial Dash to start on the pole of the 75 lap Don Gross Memorial. As the feature took the green flag, outside front row starter Mike Davis would take the lead for the opening 12 laps when the caution would fly. On the restart, Drown would make the pass for the lead as Davis would make a couple of attempts to regain the lead to no avail. An intense battle was going on for third place between Ryan Markham, Larry Bellman and Shane McLoughlin. Following a caution on lap 19, Markham edged into second past Davis and on the next lap, Bellman took third from Davis. For the next few laps, Bellman and Davis would exchange third place several times as Drown and Markham pulled away from the field. For the 1st 50 laps, caution laps would count as laps raced and lap 48 would be the last of those as the race would go caution free the next 17 circuits with Drown keeping a three car length lead over Markham as Davis ran third with Charlie Duncan getting past both Bellman and McLoughlin. The field would stay status quo until lap 70 when the caution reappeared and bunch the field together. With the race back to green, 2017 track champ, Drown and his Hall's Auto Sales, Wooster Glass and ABR Farms #240 was hugging the bottom groove through both ends of the track with Markham on his rear bumper. As the two leaders came out of turn four to complete lap 72, Markham tagged Drown and sent him spinning to bring out the yellow flag as Markham was charged for the caution that would send him to the back of the lead lap as Drown would retain his lead. As the green flag waved again, Drown would pull away as the Wooster driver would win his second Ohio Dirt Blowout race. On that final restart, Bellman powered past Davis for second for his best finish of the season. With two rounds left, Duncan would take third from Davis and on the final lap, Markham would drop Davis to fifth.

The Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association made their second visit of the season to 'Orrville's Historic Oval' with Tyler Gunn taking his pole position spot and grab the lead with Jordan Ryan in pursuit until lap 6 when 2017 track champion Andrew Palker would move into the runner up spot. Brad Haudenschild and Danny Mumaw would motor past Ryan on lap 9. Palker of West Salem, would track down Gunn and take the lead on lap 13. Mumaw, who won the OVSCA race back in May and had started 12th tonight, powered past Gunn on lap 18 for second. The race came to stop on lap 21 when Mitch Harble took a tumble in turn four. as the race went back to green, Palker and his El Campesino Restaurant and King Inspection #57x would pull away and collect his third win of the season and 1st Ohio Dirt Blowout win. Mumaw finished second with Gunn, Haudenschild and Ryan rounding out the top five. Clay Riney picked up the last chance win and would finish 6th after starting 16th and coming off his Never Ever Won win on Friday night. Jason Dolick, Ryan and Palker scored the heat wins.

Action started Friday night for the Lowes Super Stocks and by the end of the week end, Mansfield's Kyle Moore swept the week end as he would set fast time at 20.011 seconds and win his heat race on Friday, win the Mars Trucking dash and lead all 25 laps of the McKenzie Concrete feature on Saturday for his third win of the season at NAPA WCS and his 1st Ohio Dirt Blowout victory. Driving the Kryptonite Race Cars, Keller Flooring and Tim Arnold Motorsports #11, Moore would hold off early challenges from Paul Holmes for the first four circuits and 2017 track Champion Bob Daugherty would try his hand at taking the lead on laps 5 through 8 and then John Wilson would try his luck at grabbing the lead. Wilson would edge ahead a couple of times in turns one and two but could never stay ahead of Moore when they passed the flag stand. Wilson would finish second as Daugherty and Holmes flip flopped third a couple of times in the closing laps with Daugherty winning that battle. Gary Hensel Jr. worked his way to fifth from his 18th starting spot. Daugherty and Wilson joined Moore in the heat race victory lane. Chris Albright scored the last chance race. With his 4th place finish, Holmes locked up the 'Summer Series' championship with Gary Hensel Jr. and Bob Daugherty finishing second and third and will receive their awards at the banquet.

After being close a couple of times this season, Canton's Wes Staley finally found the Summit Racing victory circle as he went flag to flag for his first win of the season and that also clinched the 'Summer Series' crown for him in the WQKT 104.5 Mini Stock action. Driving the Tires & More, Finish Line Motors, and the Dalton Dari-ette #73s, Staley would fend off early runs by Sean Rush and Brad Hensel. Rush would drop out midway through the Wayne Newbury & Dirt Track Weekly feature with mechanical issues as Friday nights winner, Dale Beckett would be joined by Jordan James to battle Brad Hensel for second. As those three dueled for second, Staley was able to open up a good size lead and cruise to the win. Beckett would take second as Hensel was third followed by James, After winning the first of the two last chance races, Jerry Adkins would fill out the top five from his 17th starting spot. Brianna Hensel won the second last chance race as Billy Parsons, James, Brian Dawson and Wes Staley posted the heat wins. Matt Miller and Brad Hensel finished second and third in the 'Summer Series' and will also get their awards at the banquet.

One last night of racing is left for the 2017 season as the Arctic Cat All Stars return on Saturday October 7th for a $5,000 to win event. In four All Star races at Napa Wayne County Speedway, four different drivers have won, those being Sheldon Haudenschild, Kyle Larson, Joey Saldana and Caleb Helms. The Lowes Super Stocks will also be in action for the final time.

The Awards Banquet will be held on Saturday, November 11th at the Pines Golf Course banquet room. Watch for details later this week for the banquet at www.waynecountyspeedway.com

Chuck Hebing Wins Second Consecutive Outlaw Fall Nationals

(Dundee, NY) Sprint car veteran, Chuck Hebing proved Friday night at Outlaw Speedway that he still has it by scoring his second consecutive Outlaw Fall Nationals crown over Joe Trenca and Jason Shultz.

After four qualifying heats that were won by Jared Zimbardi, Scott Kreutter, Jonathan Preston, and Chuck Hebing, a six-lap dash would determine the top eight starters for the 30-lap A-Main. Romulus driver, Jonathan Preston would take the win and start on the pole.

Preston and teenage driver, Jordan Thomas would bring the 27-car field to the green with Preston immediately sliding to the top to take the high lane from Jordan Thomas. Hebing however, who started seventh immediately took the low line putting him in the second position immediately behind Preston.

Preston would lead the first ten laps with Hebing and Thomas close behind in lap traffic. The first caution would come out on lap ten as Derrick Juliano and George Suprick got together on the bottom of turn two.

It was double file restarts all night so Preston and Hebing would bring the field back to green where Hebing would get a great run on the outside on the next following restart clearing Preston going into corners three and four. As the field was heading into the turns, Paulie Colagiovanni would flip end over end that would also collect Steve Collins and Coleman Gulick bringing out the red flag. Gulick was able to remain racing, as Colagiovanni and Collins night would be done after ten laps.

Hebing would again get by Jonathan Preston for the top spot with Scott Kreutter, and Jordan Thomas, who was running third and fourth at the time got by Preston for the two other podium positions.

Lap traffic would continue to play a contributing factor as Scott Kreutter and Jordan Thomas would battle for the race lead against Hebing. Joe Trenca, Jonathan Preston, and Jason Shultz Jared Zimbardi would also battle for position.

Then on lap 17, Derrick Juliano would get in Hebing’s way entering three and four making contact between the two but Hebing was able to continue and maintain the lead prior to the yellow.

Hebing would once again take the race lead with Kreutter not too far behind as Joe Trenca was able to get by Thomas for third and where he would continue to track down Kreutter for second. On lap 22, Trenca would get a great run on the outside of Kreutter and get by him for the runner up spot.

A few laps later, Kreutter would lose his left front tire causing him to spin several times in front of the field bringing out another yellow. A fuel stop was required and teams were given five minutes to re-fuel and make tire pressure adjustments with six laps to go.

Hebing would go on to lead the final six laps and take his second consecutive Outlaw Fall Nationals over Joe Trenca, Jason Shultz, Jonathan Preston, and Jordan Thomas. Jordan Thomas crossed the line third at the checkers but was docked two spots due to a restart violation docking him two positions.

Davie Franek picked up traditional Evingham Site Excavation Dash for cash where Josh Weller and Coleman Gulick scored the B-Main events.

Jared Zimbardi was officially crowned the 2017 PST-American Series championship, his fifth of his career which is now the most in series history.

Cobra Strikes at Outlaw Speedway

Under sunny, warm conditions totally unexpected for late September, Outlaw Speedway welcomed the Capitol Renegade United Racing Club, Patriot Sprints Tour and the Empire Super Sprints for the 2nd Annual Outlaw Speedway Fall Nationals. With 38 cars signed into the pit area a format of four heat races were used to set the A-Main, the Pole Dash, Dash for Cash and the two B-Mains.

The Sprint car heats were won by Jared Zimbardi who returned from a wild wreck at the Williams Grove Speedway earlier this month, Scott Kruetter, Johnathan Preston, and Chuck Hebing. The Pole Dash was won by Johnathan Preston and Davie Franek won the Dash for Cash. The two B-Mains were won by URC regular Josh Weller and Coleman Gulick.

The 30-lap URC/Patriot/ESS A-Main saw Johnathan Preston grab the lead with 6th place starter Chuck Hebing jumping past Scott Kruetter to take the runner up spot. A lap 10 caution for a crash involving George Suprick restacked the field, then a multiple car flip by Paulie Colagiovanni and Steve Collins brought out the red flag. Hebing got back to the point on the restart with Kruetter going to second as Joe Trenca moved to fourth. Trenca moved past Kruetter into second as a spin on lap 23 again bunched the field.

Coming off of turn disaster could have struck with front running Kruetter losing a right front tire on the restart in front of almost the entire field. During the caution, the red flag flew for a fuel stop. On the restart, it was all Cobra with 20th place starter Josh Weller now jumping from 6th to 3rd going into turn 1. Jason Schultz also jumped into the top five on the restart, but Hebing was not to be denied, taking his second straight Fall Nationals win over Trenca, Thomas, Schultz, and Preston, who snagged fifth from Weller on the final lap.

URC Tidbits: Multiple URC regulars made the trip up north as Justin Whittall, Derek Locke, Curt Michael, Josh Weller, Jason Shultz and Keith Prutzman were all in the pit area. All URC visiting cars qualified for the feature event. Both Whittall and Locke were first time visitors to the Dundee, NY track.

LOGAN SEAVEY SWEEPS THE HOCKETT/MCMILLIN MEMORIAL

Wheatland, MO (September 23, 2017) - Holding the broom high as he climbed atop the cage of his Daum Motorsports No. 5d, Logan Seavey made it a perfect weekend with the POWRi Lucas Oil War Sprints to win the 7th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri.

Taking off from the right of the front row, Seavey jumped to the lead at the wave of the green flag. Crowding to the bottom line, the opening laps yielded several cautions with the race finally at pace for slower traffic to come into play.

With a comfortable straightaway advantage as the No. 5d picked through the backmarkers, the race throughout the top-five came to life as the high line of the Lucas Oil Speedway began to clean off; clearing the way for Dustin Morgan.

Up to second with wheel standing bite off the turns, Morgan's run came to a violent end as R.J. Miller's front end collapsed, putting him in the path of Morgan as traffic scattered. Hard contact sent Miller flipping without injury, but also included Clinton Boyles and David Stephenson.

Underway for the final nine lap stretch, Seavey was unchallenged for the win as Quinton Benson maneuvered to second from ninth with Mario Clouser making Saturday's podium. Kansas shoe Andrew Deal was fourth with Missouri's Riley Kreisel fifth.

Chris Phillips sixth was trailed by Joe B. Miller, who capped off his night as the Indy Race Parts Hard Charger with 12 positions gained. Wyatt Burks, Taylor Walton, and Anthony Nicholson completed the top-ten.

Korey Weyant was crowned the 2017 POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League Champion with a 66 point lead over Wyatt Burks (2), Chris Parkinson (3), Quinton Benson (4), Slater Helt (5), Warren Johnson (6), Vinny Ward (7), Steve Mahannah (8), Clinton Boyles (9), and Katlynn Leer (10).

The POWRi Lucas Oil WAR East Sprints are in action next at the Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois October 6-7 for SPRINT MANIA.

Lance Dewease Continues Strong 2017 As He Claims Dirt Classic 4 Pres. by Schmuck Lumber

(PETERSEN MEDIA)- Lance Dewease and the Kreitz Racing team continue to shine in big races in 2017 as Dewease was able to make a big move on lap 27 to win Dirt Classic 4 pres. by Schmuck Lumber on Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

When the race came to life it was former race winner Brian Montieth and Gerard McIntyre leading the field to green. As the race came to life, it was Montieth who jumped out front first and led the opening laps of the race.

Getting into lapped traffic, Montieth would try to make a monster move on a slower car, but the move would be too big and he would slide up and make significant contact with the wall and McIntyre would then find himself out front just before the caution flag flew for a stalled car.

With McIntyre out front, Montieth ran in second as Freddie Rahmer, Lucas Wolfe, and Jim Siegal rounded out the Top-Five. Back underway, McIntyre would continue to lead the way until another stoppage on lap 15.

During the five lap green flag run, Dewease began to make a little noise from his eighth starting spot as he now ran in fifth. As the green flag was displayed back to the field, Montieth was able to get back around McIntyre and take the race lead back over as he looked very strong out front. Behind, Dewease moved into the third spot and applied heavy pressure to McIntyre for the second spot until a lap 26 caution flag was needed.

A little drama built on the caution as Montieth’s right-rear tire began to noticeably lose air, and all eyes were on his tire as the race went back to life. Not lasting as the race resumed, Montieth would have issues as Dewease was able to get he and McIntyre on the 27th lap to grab the race lead.

Out front, Dewease was extremely strong as he was able to lead the rest of the race and hold off a surging Danny Dietrich to win his 40th career race at Lincoln Speedway and become the third different Dirt Classic winner.

Lucas Wolfe would get by McIntyre late to take the final podium position, as McIntyre held on to fourth and James McFadden advanced from 11th to finish fifth.

Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway pres. by Schmuck Lumber, a total of 37 cars checked into the pit area and it TJ Stutts picking up quick time honors.

10-heat races were ran with wins going to Stutts, Brian Brown, Wolfe, McIntyre, Rahmer, Wagaman, Dietrich, Montieth, Kerry Madsen, and JJ Grasso.

Feature Results-

1. Lance Dewease, 2. Danny Dietrich, 3. Lucas Wolfe, 4. Gerard McIntyre, 5. James McFadden, 6. JJ Grasso, 7. Greg Hodnett, 8. Chad Trout, 9. Kerry Madsen, 10. Matt Campbell, 11. Dale Blaney, 12.

Brad Furr Scores First Ocean Sprints pres. by Taco Bravo Win of Season

(PETERSEN MEDIA- Watsonville, CA)- Friday night at Ocean Speedway, Brad Furr grabbed the lead early and held off a charge from Geoff Ensign to pocket his first Ocean Sprints pres. by Taco Bravo win of the season during the series’ penultimate event of 2017.

By way of his dash win, Jerry Bonnema would lead the field to green with Brad Furr to his outside, and when the green flag was displayed to the field it was Bonnema getting the early jump.

Bonnema’s lead would be short lived as Brad Furr would race by to take command on the race’s second lap before the first stoppage of the night came as Kurt Nelson got over in turns three and four.

Back underway, Furr would get a great restart and pull away from the pack as Matthew Moles began to pressure Bonnema for the second spot before eventually taking the position.

As the leaders got into traffic, Moles would cut into Furr’s sizeable lead but would trip over the cushion in turns one and two and allow Geoff Ensign to take over the runner up spot.

With traffic becoming more of a factor, Ensign would give Furr all he could handle for the race lead until the pace was halted on the 26th circuit as Moles’ strong night came to an end with mechanical issues as he slowed in turn four.

Furr would lead the field back to green as Ensign ran in the second spot followed by Scott Parker, Colby Johnson, and Jerry Bonnema rounded out the top five. Working the bottom, Furr would open up a quick gap until the caution was again needed on lap 28 as Jeremy Chisum and Ocean Speedway first time Cody Jessop got together in turn four.

The final two laps would see Furr stay glued to the bottom as Ensign thrilled the crowd and rode the cushion around the ¼ mile speedway. While Ensign made it exciting, Furr was able to fend him off and claim the win by just .148 seconds.

Scott Parker would take the third spot as Dustin Golobic had a nice night that ended with a fourth place finish as did Colby Johnson as he came home in the fifth spot.

Koen Show, Jake Haulot, Jerry Bonnema, Jason Chisum, and Jeremy Chisum would round out the Top 10.

Friday night at Ocean Speedway a total of 19 cars would check in and it would be Brad Furr earning the Ray Scheidts Electric Fast Time award. A total of three heat races were ran with wins going to Scott Parker, Matthew Moles and Gary Nelson, Jr.

Dustin Golobic earned Hive Five Pizza Hard Charger honors as he gained seven spots in the feature, and Kurt Nelson was awarded the Beer Optics Hard Luck award after losing an engine in hot laps and tipping over in the feature event.

Hard-driving Hafertepe captures coveted Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MEDIA CONTACT: Lyndal Scranton (Lscranton755@gmail.com)

WHEATLAND, Missouri (September 24, 2017) - Sam Haferepe Jr. worried that he had driven too hard and burned up his tires as the laps in Saturday night's 7th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial dwindled.

But there was a good reason the Lucas Oil ASCS Winged Sprint Series championship leader was pushing his car to the limit at Lucas Oil Speedway.

"Normally I don't drive like that, but this is the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial," Hafertepe said. "It's $10,000. This is a big race to win and it's one that we hadn't won that I really wanted to win."

Hafertepe held on to claim one of sprint-car racing's crown jewel events before a big crowd, capturing his 14th Lucas Oil ASCS Tour feature win of the season.

In the co-headliner, Logan Seavey finished off a sweep with his third win in as many nights in the POWRi Lucas Oil Wingless Auto Racing Series feature. Seavey earned $2,077 with a wire-to-wire triumph.

Hafertepe, of Sunnyvale, Texas, passed Sammy Swindell early in the 30-lap feature and denied the veteran a three-night sweep. Matt Covington wound up second with Jason Martin third. Swindell recovered from a spin that put him tailback to finish fourth.

"This is the one that we haven't been able to tie down," Hafertepe said. "I thought we had the car to win last year and messed up. Sammy's been really good and he's a tough competitor. I knew he was going to bring everything he had and we got the best of him."

Starting from the pole, Swindell roared to the lead and paced the field until Hafertepe used the high groove to make a pass coming out of turn four to complete lap six.

"We got the top (groove) rolling and just got right by him," Hafertepe said. "I knew we were pretty good, to drive around Sammy. After that, I guess I drove a little bit too hard - but I guess you have to do that sometimes."

A four-car pileup among lapped cars, right in front of the leaders in turns one and two, sent the race to a caution on lap 10. Hafertepe navigated his way through the clutter and Swindell spun to a stop, trying to avoid hitting anyone.

That forced Swindell to the rear for the restart and elevated Wayne Johnson to second and Covington in third.

Hafertepe and Johnson broke away from the field, but Johnson and the lapped car of Thomas Kennedy tangled on lap 23 coming down the front straightaway. That ended Johnson's chances to repeat his Hockett/McMillin win from a year ago.

One lap after the restart, fourth-running Giovanni Scelzi hit the wall in turn four to bring out a red flag. That left a six-lap shootout with Hafertepe leading Covington, Johnny Herrera, Jason Martin and Swindell.

Hafertepe, nursing a right rear tire that he said was burned up, was up to the challenge.

"I could barely stay on the race track the last two or three laps," Hafertepe said. "I'm just lucky to come out here with a win."

Covington hung on for second with Martin joining the top two on the podium.

"We had a really good run and a good car," Covington said. "Sam's been so fast all year. He just ran a perfect race. We ran a pretty good race and it's good to get the runner-up position."

Seavey cruises to WAR win: It was fitting that Logan Seavey, a 20-year-old from Sutter, Calif., led flag-to-flag in the POWRi Lucas Oil War Series feature, considering he dominated all three days.

Driving a car owned by Zach Daum, who is currently sidelined by an injury, Seavey said he didn't have any idea he might be coming to the Hockett/McMillin Memorial until a few days before.

"We race against Zach every week in the Midgets and it's nice to be able to get here and run in his stuff and know it's going to be good every time you hit the track," Seavey said.

Seavey outdueled Clinton Boyles for the lead at the conclusion of lap one and was setting the pace when a red flag came out on lap four when Katlynn Leer flipped in turn three. She climbed out of her car uninjured.

Seavey opened a big lead after the restart and was ahead of Dustin Morgan and Mario Clouser - but battling lapped traffic - when another red flew on lap 22. A four-car wreck eliminated contenders Morgan and Boyles as R.J. Miller flipped in turn three. Miller was not injured, but he, Morgan and Boyles were done for the night.

"I was a little worried once I got to them," Seavey said of his battle with lapped traffic just before the red. "It was pretty sketchy there a couple of times. We were able to get through there right before that wreck and it worked out perfect for us.

"Everything just went right for us this weekend."

Quinton Benson, Clouser, Chris Phillips and Andrew Deal lined up behind Seavey as the race resumed with eight laps to go.

Seavey, with a clear track ahead of him, pulled away after the restart to prevail. Ninth-starting Quinton Benson finished second and Clouser wound up third.

"Hats off to Logan; he was the class of the field all weekend," Benson said.

Forler & Moore Finish Strong with Wins

9/23/17

Yakima, WA - The 2017 Season came to a close for the Here 2 Wire Summer Thunder Sprintcar Series and the Napa Auto Parts Washington Modified Tour with Logan Forler and Kyler Moore winning the last night of racing at Central Washington State Fair Raceway in Yakima, WA.

Forler was dominant in leading all 30 laps of the main event, holding a five second plus advantage over the field for most of the contest until a red flag with four laps to go flew for Cam Smith. Forler, who has now won races in Washington, Montana and Idaho on the year, hit his marks perfectly in holding off runner up Henry Van Dam and third place finisher Roger Crockett to pick up his first career STSS win. With a ninth place finish, Jason Solwold should be the 2017 STSS point champion. Eric Fisher was the Triple X Hard Charger, gaining seven spots in the main. JJ Hickle was quick time. Heat winners were Steve Vague, Robbie Price, Jay Cole and Smith.

Kyler Moore capped his Washington Modified Tour championship by sweeping the weekend of main event wins. Moore darted underneath Zach Simpson on lap 15 to grab the top spot and held off a challenge from BJ Wild and Doug Davenport late to win his second feature of the weekend and presumably sew up the title. Heat wins went to Lawrence O’Conner, Simpson and Moore.

CLAY RINEY SCULPTURES NAPA WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY NEVER EVER WON VICTORY; DALE BECKETT BEST IN MINI STOCK FEATURE

Orrville, Ohio

September 22, 2017

By Mike Swanger

On the opening night of the two night, 5th annual Ohio Dirt Blowout at NAPA Wayne County Speedway, presented by the Kar Connection, 17 year old Clay Riney grabbed the lead on lap five of the Never Ever Won (NEW) feature and never looked back to win his 1st Sprint car feature. Pole sitter and second heat winner Brandon Conkle would set the pace for the opening four laps as Riney would move into second from his 5th starting spot with 7th starting Sam Ashworth right behind Riney on the second circuit. The caution flag waved on lap two as Ryan Fredericks bounced off the turn one wall and stopped. As the green flag reappeared, Conkle, Riney, Ashworth and 1st heat winner Cody Gallogly were bumper to bumper. Riney and Ashworth would go side by side for second for the next two laps with Riney securing second on lap four. Working lap five, leader Conkle would get sideways to much in turn two and come to a stop with everyone getting by with no contact. On the restart, Riney would bolt out to a big lead and the Wellsburg, West Virginia driver had more than a straightaway lead over Ashworth and Gallogly. Disaster would happen to Ashworth with less than two laps to go as he smacked the guardrail in turn two and flipped to bring out the red flag. Riney and his Wahl's Heating and Cooling #c1 would drive away from Gallogly on the restart to collect his 1st win as those two drivers were the only drivers on the lead lap when the checkered flag waved. Lance Webb finished third as Kris Davis and Brian Benson filled out the top five.

Brad Hensel popped into the lead from his third starting spot to lead the first six laps of the WQKT 104.5 Mini Stock feature but Millersburg's Dale Beckett was picking his way through from his 7th starting grid position and over powered his way past Hensel on lap 7 and then hold off Hensel's last lap charge to park his #4 in the Summit Racing victory circle for his 1st win of the season. Sean Rush outdueled Billy Parsons for third as track champion Cory Staley was fifth. Heat winners were Matt Miller, Colton St. John, Sean Rush and Dale Beckett as Jordan James and Stephen Crowe topped the last chance races.

Night two of the 5th annual Ohio Dirt Blowout presented by the Kar Connection will see the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association in for a $2,500 to win feature with the Kar Connection Super Late Models racing for $4,000 to win Don Gross Memorial and a $700 to win Hans Gross Memorial dash. The Lowes Super Stocks will running for the $1,000 to win feature plus a Dash for Cash and the WQKT 104.5 Mini Stocks will have $1,200 to the winner of their main event. The Super Stocks and Mini Stocks will have their last night of the 'Summer Series' races points determined also.

SEAVEY SEEKS SWEEP
WINS NIGHT 2 OF JHDM MEMORIAL

Wheatland, MO (September 22, 2017) - California native Logan Seavey remains undefeated in WAR competition after picking up his second consecutive POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League victory Friday night at Lucas Oil Speedway against a stunning sixty car field. Wyatt Burks, Danny Smith, Clinton Boyles, and Dustin Morgan rounded out the top five for the second night of the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial.

Boyles led early from his front row outside starting position, with Seavey moving into the second spot. On lap three, Seavey threw a slide job in turns three and four to get by Boyles. Seavey held a comfortable lead throughout the remainder of the race while the battle for the remaining two podium spots was wild between Wyatt Burks, Danny Smith, Dustin Morgan, and Clinton Boyles.

Seavey would capitalize on the intense battles brewing behind him to pick up his second POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints win of his career.

The 7th Annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial concludes Saturday night, September 23 at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri.

Last-lap pass sets up Swindell for chance to sweep Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway

WHEATLAND, Missouri (September 23, 2017) - Sammy Swindell and Logan Seavey have put themselves in position to make the 7th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial something special.

Swindell took advantage of a last-lap spin by Wayne Johnson to capture Friday's middle leg of the three-night crown jewel on the Lucas Oil ASCS Winged Sprint Series at Lucas Oil Speedway.

The veteran backed up his win in Thursday's opener and, after taking a second straight $3,000 prize, will take aim at Saturday's $10,000 check in the finale.

Meanwhile, Seavey grabbed the feature win in the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Series for a second straight night. Seavey again earned a $1,077 winner's share and also will go for a sweep on Saturday night in a feature paying $2,077.

For the 61-year-old Swindell, of Germantown, Tenn., the chance to sweep the weekend would be especially sweet considering his curtailed racing schedule these days.

"It would be great," Swindell said, noting that he's known the Hockett family "for a long time and been friends with them. It would be great to come out of here with this and hopefully we can do this again and keep rolling like we've been rolling."

Johnson, winner of last year's Hockett/McMillin Memorial, got the jump on fellow front-row starter Sam Haftertepe Jr. at the drop of the green and appeared on his way to becoming a wire-to-wire winner.

But as Johnson weaved through lapped traffic during the closing laps, Swindell closed in as he hugged the low groove. With the crowd standing as the white flag flew, Johnson spun in turn two and Swindell drove past.

"I was hoping there was going to be enough room (to get by). I saw him start to lose it," Swindell said. "With about eight or nine or laps to go, we lost a brake and I was having to be real careful. I knew if we finished up in the top three we'd be on the front row tomorrow and I didn't want to give that up.

"This car was awesome. Another good car and another good night. I've just been blessed to be able to do this stuff and be able to compete like this. Wayne did a good job. He thought he was going where he needed to go.

"To come home with a win like that, when they hand it to you, you have to take it."

Series points leader Sam Hafertepe Jr. finished second with Blake Hahn third, Tony Bruce Jr., fourth and Johnson recovered to salvage fifth.

Hafertepe said there's no doubt who the man to beat will be on Saturday night.

"Sammy's been the class of the field the last two nights in the features," Hafertepe said. "He's got the car to beat right now. We'll just keep on working on it. Big money's on the line tomorrow."

Seavey doubles up in WAR: Logan Seavey turned a close race into a runaway over the final 11 laps to make it two straight Wingless Auto Racing Series wins in two nights.

Asked if his car can possibly get any better as he goes for the sweep on Saturday night, Seavey said he wasn't sure.

"I don't know if we can get it any better than it was tonight," Seavey said. "Last night we thought we could maybe improve it a little bit. We'll just keep watching the track tomorrow and see what we need to do to get this thing right and win this third feature."

Clinton Boyles grabbed the lead at the start from his outside front-row starting spot and used the high groove to complete lap one as the leader. But Seavey, utilizing a slide job in turns three and four, passed him one lap later.

Seavey opened up an eight-car-length lead by lap eight, but Boyles began to close in and was on Seavey's bumper when a caution flag flew on lap 14.

After the restart it was all Seavey. The Sutter, Calif., driver pulled away and won by nearly a straightaway's margin to make it 2-for-2 this week - and two wins in two starts in the car as a sub for injured car owner Zach Daum.

"I just have to thank (Daum) for letting me race this awesome race car," Seavey said. "This car is just unreal."

Wyatt Burks rallied from an 11th starting position to finish second with Danny Smith coming from 15th to third. Boyles slipped late and wound up fourth.

The Hockett/McMillin Memorial brings the elite to Lucas Oil Speedway for an event to honor the memory of open-wheel champion Jesse Hockett, who lost his life in a shop accident in 2010 and his cousin and crew chief, Daniel McMillin, who was killed in an auto accident in 2006.

Action concludes Saturday night with another full program for both divisions, which culminates with a $10,000-to-win feature for the ASCS.

Crockett Tops Yakima STSS Night 1

9/22/17

Yakima, WA - Season championship weekend for the Here 2 Wire Summer Thunder Sprintcar Series kicked off with a win for Roger Crockett in the Henderson Motorsports #7n at Central Washington State Fair Raceway. In the Napa Auto Parts Washington Modified Tour, Kyler Moore was victorious.

Chase Goetz set a rapid pace at the outset of the 30 lap A Feature for the sprints, with Crockett moving from fourth to second in short order. Goetz made a number of deft moves in traffic but it was clean air where Crockett got him, as Chase entered turn one too high on lap 21. Roger was in perfect position, throttling his ride underneath Chase to make the pass and take the top spot, a lead he wouldn’t relinquish for the rest of the contest. Goetz earned his career best STSS finish with a second and Jared Peterson finished two spots shy of a clean sweep in taking third. Peterson had previously guided the Rutz Racing #8p to quick time and a heat race win. Other heat winners were Crockett, Cam Smit and Jay Cole. Colton Heath was the Triple X Hard Charger, advancing 10 spots in the main.

Kyler Moore was in the right place at the right time as he took the feature win for the Modifieds. Moore was engaged in a fierce battle for second (which he had just reacquired from Tyson Blood) when race leader Jeremy Martin slowed to a stop. This gave the lead to Moore with four laps left, and he capitalized, taking the victory and stretching his championship point lead in the process. Blood would take second with Lawrence O’Conner in third. Heat winners were Blood, Martin and Kevin Smith.

Swindell, Seavey earn feature wins on Night One of Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway

WHEATLAND, Missouri (September 22, 2017) - Sammy Swindell struck first as the three-night Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial got underway Thursday night at Lucas Oil Speedway.

The veteran open-wheel icon grabbed the lead midway through the feature and went on to capture the Lucas Oil ASCS Winged Sprint Series victory. Swindell earned $3,000 and some valuable points toward starting position in Saturday's $10,000-to-win grand finale.

In the co-headliner, Logan Seavey captured the feature win for the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints on a night that 56 wingless sprints checked into the pits to go along with 55 winged sprints.

Swindell, a 61-year-old from Germantown, Tenn., drove away from Aaron Reutzel after making a pass for the lead completing lap 12. The three-time World of Outlaws Sprint Series champion dominated from there.

"As long as somebody didn't take me out or something, I was gonna be OK," Swindell said of his drive to the checkered flag.

Reutzel wound up second with Wayne Johnson, winner of last year's final-night Hockett/McMillian feature by a narrow margin over Swindell, finishing third.

Reutzel, starting outside of the front row, led the first 11 laps and at one point had a three-second lead before a lap-nine caution wiped out that margin. Shortly after the restart, Swindell made the pass for the lead out of turn four.

Reutzel said he was committed to running the top of the track, but as grip there began to go away he momentarily tried the bottom groove. That cost him as Swindell drove past.

"I made a mistake and just got beat," Reutzel said. "We have a fast hot rod right now, the driver just made a mistake."

Swindell, driving a car owned by A.G. Rains, picked up his fourth feature win of 2017.

"We've struggled a little bit with getting bumped around and things getting messed up," Swindell said. "We lost our good motor that we had last year and we've finally got this one to where it's rolling pretty good the last few weeks.

"We have a good race car. We just have to get a chance to prove it here. We should have probably had 10 or 12 wins this years, but things have happened. We definitely have a faster car than most of these other guys, we just have to prove it. Like tonight."

Series points leader Sam Hafertepe Jr. finished fourth with Jason Martin fifth.

Seavey takes Wingless win: Logan Seavey of Sutter, Calif., held on to win the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR feature, in just his second time driving a car-owned by Zach Daum who is currently out of action with an injury.

"I can't thank him enough for letting me run his race cars," Seavey said of Daum.

Chris Phillips grabbed the lead from his outside front row starting position with Seavey and Clouser closing in before the race was red-flagged on lap eight when Wyatt Burks' car erupted into flames and rolled to a stop in turn four. Burks escaped without injury.

Two laps after the restart, Seavey used a run in turns one and two to take the lead with Clouser following him into second place.

Another red flag brought the race to a halt on lap 15 when Michael Tyre and Landon Simon got together in turn four with Simon's motor catching fire. He was not injured, but it bunched the field again just 10 laps from the finish.

Seavey continued to lead it and had opened up a sizeable lead with Clouser and Dustin Morgan dueling for second when Casey Wills flipped in turn four, bringing out a third red flag with five laps remaining. Wills emerged from the car under his own power.

Seavey hung on to win it, holding off a fast-closing Morgan with Clouser winding up third.

"I was getting nervous there," Seavey said of the final laps. "I knew the top (of the track) was slowing down a lot and I ran the bottom the last few laps. It was getting a little scary, but we were able to hold on."

Two contenders were eliminated early. Series points leader Korey Weyant made contact with another car, going down the backstretch on the opening lap, and had to call it a night with a rear-end issue. Clinton Boyles, also was an early retiree with a motor problem on lap five.

The Hockett/McMillin Memorial brings the elite to Lucas Oil Speedway for an event to honor the memory of open-wheel champion Jesse Hockett, who lost his life in a shop accident in 2010 and his cousin and crew chief, Daniel McMillin, who was killed in an auto accident in 2006.

Action continues Friday night with another full program before the Saturday-night conclusion which culminates with a $10,000-to-win feature for the ASCS.

SEAVEY SHINES IN WAR SPRINT DEBUT

Wheatland, MO (September 21, 2017) - Logan Seavey made his POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint debut in stunning fashion by taking the Daum Motorsports 5D machine to victory lane at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri for Night 1 of the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial against a staggering 56 car field. Dustin Morgan, Mario Clouser, Brandon Mattox, and Quinton Benson rounded out the top five.

Benson and Chris Phillips led the 22-car field to green flag racing. Phillips would lead early on with Seavey moving into second and challenging for the lead throughout the first half of the race. Around midway through the 25 lap A-Main event, Seavey had a great run going into turn 1 and drove around the outside of Phillips while Clouser snuck by on the bottom shuffling Phillips back to third and Seavey taking over the lead.

Dustin Morgan who had started eighteenth, after transferring through a B-Main earlier in the evening, charged through to the top five and was making his way towards a podium finish. Once Morgan made it to third, he and second-running Clouser exchanged monster sliders lap-after-lap until the red flag came out for Casey Wills who flipped wildly in turn four. He climbed out under his own power.

On the last restart, Seavey ran away to score his first POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint victory on his first attempt with the league while driving for Zach Daum Motorsports. Dustin Morgan finished second and Mario Clouser rounded out the podium.

The 7th Annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial continues Friday night September 22 at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri.

An accumulation of points from Thursday and Friday night's events will decide the top six in points who will automatically lock in for Saturday night's A-Main event.

The current top 10 for the weekend is as follows:
Logan Seavey (175)
Dustin Morgan (158)
Brandon Mattox (155)
Mario Clouser (154)
Quinton Benson (147)
Andrew Deal (138)
Chris Parkinson (138)
Chris Phillips (138)
Anthony Nicholson (137)
Noah Gass (131)

Ryan Burdett Wins Pink Lady Classic Against Royal Purple NSRA Winged Sprintcars/King Of The Wings At Meridian

By Ben Deatherage

Meridian, Idaho-Saturday, September 16th, would be the third and final leg of the Royal Purple NSRA Winged Sprintcars championship weekend. And like the previous two nights the stars of the Pacific Northwest would try to defend their home turf against the regulars of the Royal Purple King Of The Wings Series. Meridian Speedway once again, like the night before, would host racing action with twenty-nine cars filling the pits from Idaho, Oregon, California, and Utah as well as the Canadian province of British Columbia.

Ryan Burdett landed the pole for the feature of the 2017 Pink Lady Classic. The West Valley City, Utah pilot would get his elbows up and set a torrid pace over the rest of the field. The main event would be completed without any sort of incident going from green to checkered. Burdett would obtain the win to be the seventh different winner of the campaign for the Royal Purple NSRA Winged Sprintcars and the fifth winner with the King Of The Wings this season.

Meridian pilot Bryan Warf was second while Roseburg, Oregon's Matt Hein got third. The rest of the top five was made up of the Joey and Sarah Moore entry, driven by Adrian, Oregon teenager Tristen Spiers, in fourth and fifth finishing Johnny Geisler, of Meridian.

Johnny Geisler would be fast time of the night and set a new track record at 11.034 seconds. Heat races were won by Ryan Orchard of Sidney, British Columbia, Carmichael, California's Tom Baker, Kyle Bergerner from Salt Lake City, Utah, and Meridian native Colton Nelson. Casey Tillman, of Kuna, was the driver to finish first place in the consolation main event.

Once the night was completed and the points all tallied Aaron Willison would be declared the Royal Purple NSRA Winged Sprintcar champion. The Langley, British Columbia driver is the third different Canadian to have the honor the first one to do so since 2006.

Jon Agan Bests Sprint Invaders in Quincy!

(Bill W) Quincy, IL, September 17, 2017 – Jon Agan won a battle of veterans versus rookies with the Shottenkirk.com Sprint Invaders Sunday night. The Knoxville, Iowa driver survived a four-lead change duel with rookie Brayden Gaylord to win his first Sprint Invaders contest of the year and the seventh of his career with the series.

Another Sprint Invaders rookie, Tanner Gebhart grabbed the early lead in the 25-lap main event. Damian Getchell would stop after contact after one lap, slowing things. Gebhart led Gaylord, Jamie Ball, Agan and John Schulz back to green. While Gebhart rode through the middle on the beautifully prepared ¼-mile oval, Gaylord was hugging the low side. Gaylord would take control of the race on lap three, while Agan moved by Ball into third.

Gaylord approached traffic on lap 10, but contact between Cody Wehrle and Bailey Goldesberry brought out the yellow flag. Both were done. Gaylord led Gebhart, Agan, Ball and Ryan Jamison back to green. Agan headed to the cushion to race around Gebhart for second. Agan’s persistence on the high side paid off on lap 13, when he took the point from Gaylord. A bobble in one and two permitted Gaylord to return the favor on lap 14.

When Rob Weuve spun on lap 17, Gaylord led Agan, Gebhart, Jamison and John Schulz. Agan took advantage again on the restart and got around Gaylord for good. Gebhart reeled in the lead pair. A caution slowed that battle when Jarrod Schneiderman tagged an infield tire and came to a stop with five to go. On the restart, a chain reaction accident saw Dustin Clark upside down and McKenna Haase on the hook. Both were unhurt.

Agan pulled away to win over Gaylord, Schulz, Gebhart and Jamison. Ball, Ayrton Gennetten, Joey Moughan, Harold Pohren and JC Bland rounded out the top ten. Gaylord, Ball and Agan won heats, while Schulz took the Shake-up Dash. Cody Wehrle won the B main.

“We started the season off pretty good, but unfortunately, got crashed a couple times,” said Agan in Victory Lane. “We’re not running full-time anymore, and this means a lot. It’s been rough. We’ve been fast. It feels great. I love coming to places like this. This is my second time at Quincy. Two years ago, it was absolutely loose and laid rubber. Thank you, new owners. It was a fantastic racetrack.”

“I had it on the bottom,” said Gaylord. “I tried it up top a couple laps, but we got on the bottom and the crew told me we were running away. I didn’t know what I was going to do in traffic. There was one on top, one on the bottom and another in the middle. I really didn’t have a plan going into that, to be honest. We were fortunate to draw well, get in the Dash and finish up front. I’m ecstatic to run in the top three to be honest! This is one of my favorite tracks to come to.”

“It’s been kind of a battle this year,” said Schulz. “We got the new motor back that we hurt in the early spring. We put it in and it ran really well. The guys worked hard. It feels good to be running up front again. The track was pretty racy and we were right there in the thick of things. The Dash draw (five) didn’t go the best for us, but we were right there with them.”

The Shottenkirk.com Sprint Invaders finish up a competitive 2017 season next Saturday, September 23 with their Season Championship at the 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa.

Shane Sellers Wins Oklahoma State Championship Race Victory Comes One Year After Father's Win

John Lemon OCRS-PR

Ada Okla. (September 16, 2017)- Shane Sellers won the 11th Annual Oklahoma State Championship sprint car race at the Oklahoma Sports Park Saturday night. The annual event sanctioned by the Ameri-Flex / OCRS sprint car series began in 2007 and has been a key event for the series ever since. By virtue of winning, Sellers will have his name added on the annual trophy for future OSC races to come. His father Robert, also a 2-time champion of the series, won the OSC race last year.

Sellers started on the pole for the 25-lap affair with series points leader Zach Chappell starting along side. At the drop of the green flag, official starter J.D. Etter called the start back as the front row starters were not aligned to his liking. On the second attempt at the start, Sellers won the drag race to turns one and two and with the exception of lapped cars, Sellers would never see a rear bumper for the entire distance in the all green event. Sellers' winning car is a XXX chassis with Brand Racing Engines power and is backed by Courtney Farms, Select Coating, Two-Six racing Products, Outlaw Wings and David Grace Motorsports.

"The car was really good tonight," expressed Sellers. "It ran great in the heat race and we felt we had a great car for the feature. It just worked out well for us". When asked about having his name etched next to his fathers as a winner of the event, Sellers said, "That's really awesome. I have learned a lot from him (Robert) and to have won this race as he has is really special."

Chappell gave it his all in the Ameri-Flex Hose & Accessories / Smiley Racing Products / Metro Fire Protection / Crazy Cow Trucking Maxim / DSO powered 50z car. At times Chappell would be 1/2 to 2/3 of a straight away behind and then close in at other times when the leaders would encounter lapped traffic. In the end, Chappell would hold onto the runner-up position and gain valuable points towards earning his first ever Harold Leep Championship Trophy.

Sheldon Barksdale would finish third and often would close in on Chappell closer than Chappell could get to Sellers. The driver from Norman just couldn't a chance to get along side to make a passing attempt. Local favorite Gary Owens would finish fourth with 2008 winner Danny Smith having a solid run to finish in the top five.

Rounding out the top 10 were: 3-time winner Whit Gastineau, Morgan Fletcher (in his best career Ameri-Flex / OCRS finish), Johnny Kent, Amsoil Hard Charger Shayla Waddell and Joe Bob Lee.

Valesquez Takes URSS/DCRP Soderberg Memorial

Taylor Velasquez won his first URSS race of the year and secured his second consecutive Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Car championship by adding another Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship win in Saturday night’s 25-lap DCRP vs. URSS Sprint Car main event atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval.

In the 25-lap DCRP vs. URSS Sprint Car feature, Turpin, Oklahoma’s Velasquez took advantage of a mid-race caution to preserve his second win of the season aboard the Fronk Oil Co./Bearcat Well Service No. 21x Maxim.

“That caution was a blessing,” Velasquez commented in victory lane. “I kept working the bottom, but I was getting tighter and tighter and wondered if the topside was coming in. Then I saw him (Luke Cranston) up there.”

With Steven Richardson and Ray Seemann leading the way to the green flag, Velasquez shot into the lead on the opening round. Seemann battled back, with the duo trading the lead on consecutive laps from the eighth to 11th circuit until Velasquez moved to the bottom portion of the track.

With Velasquez and Seemann working the low line, Luke Cranston was rallying on the top side and was poised to race past both for the lead when the race’s only caution flew for a turn four Lance Davis spin with 14 laps in the books.

Velasquez moved back to the top on the restart to keep Cranston at bay, putting the race in the bag when he made quick work of a pack of six lapped cars with just a handful of laps remaining.

Velasquez’ ninth DCRP Sprint Car win since 2013 and third Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship event triumph was worth $750, courtesy of Comfort Suites. Velasquez beat Cranston to the line, with Richardson launching off the final corner to secure the show position. Seemann crossed the stripe fourth with Brandy Jones rounding out the top five.

URSS point leader Zach Blurton’s night started off bad as a blown engine in hot laps sent him scurrying in the pits to install a new power plant. Blurton would miss his heat but returned to start 23rd in the feature and ran it up to a sixth place finish to earn the Keizer Aluminum Wheels Hard Charger Award and maintain the point lead.

Buddy Kofoid, Ray Trimble, Orville Owens and Ryan Winter pick off Bryan Carnett Memorial wins on championship night at Placerville Speedway

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – September 16, 2017…An entertaining evening of racing on Red Hawk Casino championship night at the Placerville Speedway saw Buddy Kofoid, Ray Trimble, Orville Owens and Ryan Winter earn wins, while Steven Tiner, Matt Michelli and Jason Palmer were crowned track champions.

Picture perfect weather greeted fans and teams on Saturday night, which featured 81 race cars packing the pit area of the El Dorado County Fairgrounds quarter-mile.

Penngrove’s Buddy Kofoid fired an early warning shot that he will be a certain contender at next week’s Nor-Cal Posse Shootout after picking up a thrilling victory on Saturday. The 15-year-old won out in a top-notch duel with Clarksburg’s Justyn Cox to claim his first Placerville win of the season.

Cox started on the pole in the 25-lap feature and took the lead at waving of the green flag. The first eight laps were clicked off caution free with Kofoid hounding the rear bumper of Cox’ No. 31c machine. Following a debris caution Kofoid charged around the high-side of turn four to grab the lead, prior to another yellow on lap 11.

At that time track champion Steven Tiner suffered a flat tire while running in the third position. On the restart Kofoid banged the turn one cushion violently and Cox sliced to his inside for the lead. The next corner saw Cox bang the cushion himself however, and Kofoid charged back to his inside to re-claim the point.

The exciting back and forth fight between Kofoid and Cox continued with the duo exchanging the lead multiple times, before Kofoid assumed it for good on lap 18. One final caution waved on lap 19 and after that Kofoid hit his marks to take the Ron Stahl checkered flag over Cox, 12th starter Sean Becker of Roseville, Colby Copeland of Roseville and 13th starter Greg Decaires of Elk Grove.

A total of 29 Thompson’s Auto Group Winged 360 Sprint Cars were on hand during the night with the B-main going to Matt Peterson. Heat race wins were picked off by Buddy Kofoid, DJ Freitas, Justyn Cox and Shane Hopkins. The ADCO Driveline and Custom Exhaust Fast Time Award went to Cody Lamar at a 10.852.

For the second time this season Ray Trimble picked up a victory with the Ltd. Late Models and took home a stout $1300 for his efforts. Tom Tilford took the lead on the start of the 20-lap Bryan Carnett Memorial main event. Trimble pressured Tilford over the early stages before taking the top spot on lap nine. Track champion Matt Michelli also followed along for second shortly after.

A caution waved on lap 13 and on the restart a wild three-wide battle was seen for second between Tilford, Michelli and Randy McDaniel. As the trio entered turn three Michelli got big time loose and dropped a few spots. Trimble clicked off the final seven circuits to claim the big win over Tilford, McDaniel, Michelli and Wayne Trimble. Fourteen Ltd. Late Models were in action on Saturday with heats won by Eddie Gardner and Randy McDaniel.

The $1100-to-win Bryan Carnett Memorial Pure Stock feature began with Jesse Van Roekel jumping into the lead at the green flag. Consecutive yellows on lap three and four were seen, which slowed things early.

On the restart track champion Jason Palmer charged to the lead. Scott Grunert then made his presence known by claiming second on lap seven, before carving his way by Palmer to take the top spot on lap eight. Grunert was in search of his first season win, but with five laps to go had to deal with a fast-moving Orville Owens.

HUSTLER NUMBER 10 TO KEVIN THOMAS JR.

Haubstadt, IN - September 16, 2017 - Kevin Thomas Jr. of Cullman, AL, won the tenth annual “Haubstadt Hustler” at Tri-State Speedway Saturday night. The win was worth $10,000 plus another $2,500 from Unique Breedz. The KT Motorsports Chevy powered DRC is sponsored by Jeff’s Jam-It-In Storage and Abreu Vineyards. The crew chief is Davey Jones.

The 40 lap MSCS-USAC co-sanctioned feature event turned into another even Greater K & K Show. The race was a dual to the finish between K.T. and Kyle Cummins. Cummins had pursued Thomas lap after lap after leading the first three circuits. Then Kyle tested the cushion, defying the wall, with two laps to go. A last lap effort into turn three and out of four produced a side by side dash to the finish line. The winning margin was a scant .05 second.

Kyle Cummins was the quickest in group qualifying. His 13.624 seconds lap earned a bonus of $500 from Unique Breedz. The track got even faster as the top three finishers posted quicker laps during the feature race.

Thomas Meseraull finished third with a competitive car and a steady performance minus the break he needed to catch the leaders. Chet Williams was fourth in a strong run. Williams started fifth and laid claim to fourth on lap 3 and that is where he remained. Meseraull was the only driver to pass him. Tyler Courtney was next with a run from fourteenth up to fifth.

The second five in the feature in order were Chris Windom, Brady Short, Robert Ballou, C.J. Leary, and Justin Grant. Brady Short lead all the movers with a gain of 14 positions to be recognized as the Keizer Aluminum Wheels Hard Charger of the Race. Chris Windom gained 10 spots in moving up through the 24 car field. Chad Boespflug was eleventh which qualified him to receive the Wilwood Tuff Brakes Award.

The four heat races produced winners that would also excel in the feature. They were convincing victories for Thomas Meseraull, Chet Williams, Kevin Thomas Jr., and Kyle Cummins. Chad Boespflug won the twelve lap B Main with the top six of 15 starters to transfer to the feature. The field was short one car. Brian Karraker’s car was damaged in a spectacular flip during the second heat race. His car landed upside down and lodged between the wall and the lower portion of the Best One billboard located at the center of turns one and two. Ben Knight also flipped his sprinter in turn two during the B Main.

MSCS will be idle for two weekends and return to Tri-State Speedway on Saturday October 7th for the Harvest Cup paying $5,000 to win. The rain date for this one, if needed, is set for Sunday October 8th. The UMP Modifieds and MMSA Mini Sprints will also race in that program.

The UMP Modifieds raced in a 25 lap feature which paid $3100 to win including the bonus provided by Unique Breedz. Winner Trent Young of Crofton, KY, led from the fourth lap in his Motorsports Unlimited race car. Young used a newly installed big motor to his advantage despite failing brakes making it difficult to hit his marks on the quarter mile oval.

Twenty cars started an event interrupted six times by incidents that produced caution flags. Young prevailed in restart after restart. After the last restart on lap 19 the field began to string out. Early leader Matt Cooper of McKenzie, TN, finished second. Fast qualifier Mark Lamont of Crossville, IL, placed third. Dustin Beck was fourth with Stan Beadles next in rounding out the top five.

The three heat races were won by Dustin Beck, Trent Young, and Mark Lamont. The feature win was Young’s third of the season at Haubstadt. The Modifieds are slated to run for $1,500 to win at the season finale on October 7th at Tri-State Speedway.

Josh Harris claims $4,000 payday in ‘Patriot 100’ race for UMP Modifieds at Lincoln Park Speedway - Peeden picks up 11th super stock win, Cockrum and Wright earn wins

By CAREY FOX Times Sports Editor PUTNAMVILLE ‑ Josh Harris made the most of his very first trip to Lincoln Park Speedway. The Owensboro, Ky. native dominated the competition to take home the winner’s share of Saturday’s American Modified Series event at the Putnamville oval. Harris led the final 67 laps of the 100-lap Patriot 100 for UMP Modifieds to win $4,000 a night after placing second at Bloomington and winning $1,500. Harris came into the race leading the series points, but had yet to visit victory lane during one of the AMS events. He made sure that he took care of business in extending his points advantage as he passed Tait Davenport on lap 25 and controlled the race for the majority of the remaining laps. Davenport led early on as Danny Swartz ran second and the pair opened up a solid gap on Harris as Gabe Menser and Derek Groomer were a distant fourth and fifth. However, Harris began to reel the leaders in and took over the second position on lap 20 and then snagged the lead in lapped traffic five laps later. Once Harris had taken over the lead, he began to build upon his advantage heading into the halfway mark as the caution came out and teams were allowed to make adjustments to their cars. Harris wouldn’t let up during the final 50 laps as members of the competition began to drop out of the marathon event. As Harris maintained a comfortable margin up front, Davenport had his hands full with Swartz as Groomer moved into competition along with Menser, Brian Shaw and Richie Lex. A final caution came out with six laps remaining and gave Davenport a chance at Harris on the restart. When the field took the green flag once again, Davenport threw a big slide attempt into turn two as the pair made contact briefly. However, Harris was able to regain his momentum out of the corner and wheeled his No. 22 into victory lane. Davenport came home second. In the sprint car A-main, Shane Cockrum held off a furious challenge from AJ Hopkins after a caution with four laps remaining. Hopkins threw a big slider at Cockrum headed into turn three and slammed the cushion and nearly flipped. However, Hopkins was able to retain his momentum and get back on the throttle to stay in second-place. However, Cockrum checked out over the final lap to cruise away to the victory. Koby Barksdale led the initial circuits and had as much as a straightaway lead at lap 10 before lapped traffic became a late factor. By lap 13, Cockrum had chased down Barksdale and took over the top spot on lap 16 before a spin by Barksdale brought out the caution flag. On the restart, Hopkins powered into second-place and quickly began to challenge Cockrum up front. The cushion became an issue as Hopkins drilled the top shelf twice while making a move on the leader and nearly found trouble. However, Cockrum held down the top position to the checkered flag as Hopkins, Jadon Rogers, Tim Creech and Hunter O’Neal wrapped up the top-five. In the UMP Super Stock division, Steve Peeden returned to victory lane to halt Jonny Newgent’s three-race win streak at Lincoln Park Speedway. Peeden and Newgent raced door-to-door over the first five laps before Peeden edged into the lead and stayed there over the final 15 laps. Peeden pulled away to a solid margin to record his 11th feature win of the season. Wes McClara placed third ahead of Chris Harcourt and Paul Wright. In the bomber A-main it was Indianapolis’ Cody Wright winning his fifth feature of the season as he topped Josh Litton, Gary Hayden, Jordan Almanza and David Bumgardner. Wright led from the outset with the real action taking place behind him as Hayden and Jeff Allen battling for second-place early on as Josh Litton ran fourth with Bumgardner and Almanza racing wheel-to-wheel. Wright built a solid lead as Hayden settled into a battle to the checkered flag before Josh Litton was able to edge past for the runner-up spot. Hayden took third ahead of Almanza and Bumgardner. This weekend will be a doubleheader as LPS hosts the King of TQ Nationals on Friday and Saturday with sprints, UMP Modifieds and Super Stocks as well as bombers both nights.

Bell Reigns Undefeated in POWRi National Midgets

Marion, IL - It's quite fitting that for the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League's inaugural appearance at Southern Illinois Raceway, NASCAR star Christopher Bell would claim victory. Winning the inaugural Mike Phillips Memorial, "the 66," in 2011 with the POWRi Speedway Motors 600cc Outlaw Micro League was a catalyst in thrusting Bell into the open wheel ranks with Keith Kunz Motorsports.

Tonight, Bell returned to the Southern Illinois Raceway and added to his two victories with the league from early spring at his hometown track, I-44 Riverside Speedway.

Starting outside row four, Bell quickly pushed forward on the high-banked 1/8th mile into the second position. Following closely behind pole sitter Tucker Klaasmeyer, Bell challenged Klaasmeyer repeatedly until taking over the top spot on lap nine. Enduring only two yellows and one red for the remaining 21 laps, Bell rode to victory relatively unchallenged to capture his 24th career POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League feature event. Tucker Klaasmeyer finished second with Zeb Wise in third. Leading candidate for POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League rookie of the year and championship contender Logan Seavey took fourth, with Jake Neuman rounding out the top five.

"That was tough," stated Christopher Bell. "The track was extremely technical. The cushion was really treacherous. This was a fun race. This would be the track to do an Ironman 55 like they do at Pevely. It's a really physical race track. It's always fun when I get to come out and midget race. I'm just thankful that Keith and Pete let me come out and have fun. It's always a lot of fun to race in front of a packed house."

"It's hard enough to get a win and when Chris Bell shows up, he's the class of our sport, it's hard to beat him," commented Tucker Klaasmeyer. "He doesn't make any mistakes and when he does, normally I make a mistake right behind him. We didn't have Flea with us tonight, so we all had to pull our heads together tonight. Austin, Corey, and Tommy had the cars great tonight. Couldn't ask for much more."

"It's been a lot of fun so far in the midget," said Zeb Wise. "I came from the micro ranks and jumping into these, it's a lot different. It's a lot of fun. Clauson Marshall, Tim, Rizzy, and my mom and dad for everything they do for me; I can't thank them enough."

Heath, Smith, Parker & Gunderson Win on Championship Night: Titles to Price, Smith, Carpenter and Hibbard

9/16/17

Alger, WA - The final night of racing at Skagit Speedway for 2017 is in the books, and of the four feature winners on Scrap It Stow It night, only one of them was the respective champion of his class. Colton Heath, Kevin Smith, Steve Parker and Jon Gunderson were the feature winners while Robbie Price, Smith, Kelsey Carpenter and Vance Hibbard secured the season point titles.

In the grand finale’ of the evening, Heath went wire to wire for the win in the Budweiser 360 sprints, capturing his fourth win of the 2017 campaign as fended off challenges on restarts from eventual second place driver Jason Solwold on lap 21 and 23. Jayme Barnes advanced from seventh to pick up third. In qualifying, Chase Goetz set fast time for the drivers outside the top eight in owners points. Heath won the scramble. Robbie Price was crowned champion at the end of the night on the strength of three wins on the year - the championship is the first for the Cobble Hill, BC 19 year old in his 11 years of racing.

Kevin Smith was the only driver to secure his championship with a win on Saturday night, as he led all 25 laps for his sixth Skagit Speedway triumph of the year in the High Society Modifieds. Smith was pressured by his brother Rick who ended up second and Mel Decker who ran a solid third. Kevin won the scramble. The former Sportsman Sprint champion becomes the first driver to win a Skagit Speedway title in the Sprint Car and Modified since its inception as a weekly division two years ago.

Steve Parker won the battle, but Kelsey Carpenter won the war in the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprint class. Parker and Carpenter exchanged the lead multiple times over the course of the main before a bold move on the inside of turn two on lap 23 secured the lead for good for Parker, netting him his first victory of the season. Carpenter would settle for second and the point title to boot, his fifth at Skagit Speedway overall and the second for his car owner Bill Rude. Rude had quite the night of his own, as he set a new track record in time trials at 12.062. Third in the main event was Bailey Sucich who claimed rookie of the year honors in a title battle with Ashleigh Johnson.

The never ending Vance Hibbard retirement tour might have found a fantastic place to stop, as his second place finish in the main event secured him his first Skagit Speedway track championship. Jon Gunderson was the feature winner, leading laps 4-17 en route to victory lane, followed by Hibbard and Clint Meins.

Velasquez Victorious in DCRP’s Soderberg Memorial Championship; Nusser, Davidson, Munoz & Wahrman Win as Well

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (September 16, 2017) – Taylor Velasquez secured his second consecutive Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Car championship by adding another Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship win in Saturday night’s 25-lap DCRP vs. URSS Sprint Car main event atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval.

While Velasquez added his third win in the fifth rendition of the Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship, other season-ending winners included William Nusser in IMCA Modifieds, Brian Davidson in IMCA Sport Modifieds, Angel Munoz in IMCA Stock Cars and Duane Wahrman in IMCA Stock Cars.

In the 25-lap DCRP vs. URSS Sprint Car feature, Turpin, Oklahoma’s Velasquez took advantage of a mid-race caution to preserve his second win of the season aboard the Fronk Oil Co./Bearcat Well Service No. 21x Maxim.

“That caution was a blessing,” Velasquez commented in victory lane. “I kept working the bottom, but I was getting tighter and tighter and wondered if the topside was coming in. Then I saw him (Luke Cranston) up there.”

With Steven Richardson and Ray Seemann leading the way to the green flag, Velasquez shot into the lead on the opening round. Seemann battled back, with the duo trading the lead on consecutive laps from the eighth to 11th circuit until Velasquez moved to the bottom portion of the track.

With Velasquez and Seemann working the low line, Luke Cranston was rallying on the top side and was poised to race past both for the lead when the race’s only caution flew for a turn four Lance Davis spin with 14 laps in the books.

Velasquez moved back to the top on the restart to keep Cranston at bay, putting the race in the bag when he made quick work of a pack of six lapped cars with just a handful of laps remaining.

Velasquez’ ninth DCRP Sprint Car win since 2013 and third Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship event triumph was worth $750, courtesy of Comfort Suites. Velasquez beat Cranston to the line, with Richardson launching off the final corner to secure the show position. Seemann crossed the stripe fourth with Brandy Jones rounding out the top five.

In IMCA Modified action, Larned’s William Nusser cashed in on his pole starting position by racing to his second 20-lap feature win of the season.

Nusser gunned into the lead at the outset and kept Tracy Link at bay throughout to break the string of eight different winners over the eight previous feature events. While Nusser held off Link for the win, Kale Beavers claimed third while Clay Sellard made a late push from his original 14th starting position to snare fourth as he claimed the track championship. Mike Lunow filled out the top five.

After coming close a pair of times earlier this season, Bennington’s Brian Davidson finally broke through to capture his first IMCA Sport Modified victory at DCRP in the 20-lapper.

Davidson charged past early leader Bart Baker on the fourth round and then had his hands full the rest of the way with Jeff Kaup. Kaup slipped under Davidson exiting turn four to take command on the 17th round, only to have Davidson return the favor the next time around.

Kaup made a final bid on the last lap, but Davidson was up to the task. Kaup fell one position short of a fifth win on the season, yet still easily secured his fourth track championship in the past five years. Baker crossed the stripe third with Alex Wiens and Jarett Lunow rounding out the top five.

Lamar, Colorado’s Angel Munoz put the finishing touches on the IMCA Stock Car championship by racing to his sixth win of the season in eight events in the 12-lap season-ender.

After leading early, Chris Oliver made Munoz work for it as the duo battled side-by-side for several rounds before Munoz took command on the seventh round en route to taking the checkered flag ahead of Oliver and Ondre Rexford.

Pratt’s Duane Wahrman made one last bid for the IMCA Hobby Stock title by picking off his third win of the season in the 15-lap finale but fell short of the crown as Reagan Sellard rebounded from heat race issues to post a third-place finish.

Wahrman battled past Jacob Huse for the point on the eighth round then held off a pack of challengers over the closing rounds to post the win ahead of Huse, Sellard, Tyler Walker and Bryan Habiger.

The 2017 season at Dodge City Raceway Park will finish in a big way with the return of the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series “Boot Hill Showdown” on October 27-28. Tickets for event are available at https://dirtcar.ticketforce.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=255.

Reed holds off late race Martin charge for $10K Jim Ford Classic at Fremont Speedway

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Byron Reed appeared to be well on his way to a $10,000 pay day at Fremont Speedway Saturday, Sept. 16. But defending track champion Broc Martin had other ideas the last three laps, diving under Reed numerous times. Reed, who wrapped up his seventh track title last week, held off the challenges and drove to his first ever win in the 10th Annual Jim & Joanne Ford Classic on JLH General Contractor Night.

The victory was the fourth of the year at “The Track That Action Built” and the 36th of Reed’s career at Fremont Speedway putting him 11th on the all-time feature win list. Reed, from Monclova, Ohio, led all 40 laps for the big pay day that is honors the Ford family who saved Fremont Speedway from near extinction in 2000.

“I was struggling with the lapped cars. I wasn’t much faster than them so I knew I was kind of in trouble. I felt good in three and four but one and two I didn’t feel like I was good and I thought I’d be a sitting duck. Last night I didn’t do the best job of driving and my parents were brutally honest. My mom said ‘I don’t think Tim Shaffer is any better than you he was just a better driver’ so I had to prove her wrong tonight,” said Reed beside his Crown Battery backed #5

“We are done for the year and it’s a great way to end it. We had a really great year and I have to thank my mom and dad, Kurt, Kevin, my family and Crown Battery for all they do for me. I want to thank all the fans for coming out and Fremont Speedway for putting this show on. We’ll be back next year but I do have things going on in my life that are important to me that I want to take care of but you’ll see me most nights,” Reed added in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.

Fremont’s Paul Weaver made it a sweep of the weekend in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints but it wasn’t easy. With six laps remaining in the 25 lap feature, Weaver’s mount began to belch smoke and after taking the checkered flag he coasted to a stop on the back stretch. Weaver’s win is the fourth of the year at Fremont Speedway and the 45th of his career at the track tying him with Jim McCune for seventh on the track’s all-time win list.

“I don’t know if it blew up but it is that engine’s last race of the season, that’s for sure. One gauge was pegged all the way one way and the other all the way to the other side. It got awful slow at the end. I’m lucky to be old enough to know the names of the guys I’m with on the all-time win list so I really can appreciate it. I have to thank Dave Rice for helping me get back on the track when the first engine went and Bob Hampshire and Darrel Schiets for sponsoring me and Daniel; I sit back in my chair while he puts the set-up on,” said Weaver in the Engine Pro Victory Lane beside his M&L Excavating, Weaver Performance Center, Tender Touch Car Wash, Miller Rigging backed machine.

Fostoria, Ohio’s Shawn Valenti and Kent Brewer put on a whale of a battle in the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck A-main. The duo ran side by side the last 12 laps, trading the lead nearly every corner. When the checkers flew Valenti earned his eighth win of the year at Fremont and the 40th of his career at the track tying him with Harold McGilton for 10th on the all-time feature win list.

“It was good hard racing. This truck is amazing. This thing…I don’t know what it is about it…when I get behind it it’s just a matter of hitting the gas peddle and trying to hang on to the steering wheel. Jeff Babcock does an awesome job,” said Valenti of his A Plus Auto Center, Best Performance, Craig Miller Trucking, Dave Story Equipment, Real Geese, backed #7b.

Cole Duncan, who earned an extra $700 from DKW Transport and fans Steve Klisz and Lane Cecil for setting fast time in qualifications, and Reed were scheduled for the front row of the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint A-Main. But before the green could fly Duncan went to the pits with mechanical issues and was done for the night. Martin and Reed then brought the field to the green with Reed gaining the upper hand but a caution for Ayrton Olsen after a lap was scored kept the field close.

When the green flew again Reed pulled away from Craig Mintz, Martin, Travis Philo, Cale Thomas, Tyler Gunn and Jody Keegan. Reed’s lead began to evaporate by lap 11 as he prepared to race into heavy lapped traffic. Cap Henry, who had worked his way from 17th to sixth spun on lap 19 with the running order Reed, Mintz, Martin, Philo, Thomas, Keegan, Chris Andrews and 20th starter Tim Shaffer. On the restart Philo and Thomas got together with Thomas taking a nasty flip, collecting Keegan. Thomas was okay but done for the night while Philo went to the tail and Keegan continued with heavy winged damage.

Reed pulled away once again when the green reappeared while Mintz and Martin tried to keep pace with Andrews holding off Shaffer for fourth. With 10 laps to go once again Reed caught the back of the pack and that allowed by Mintz and Martin to close with Andrews, Shaffer and Lee Jacobs in tow. Martin drove into second on lap 34 and took big bites out of Reed’s lead. With the white flag waving Martin drove his machine extremely deep into turn three and right on Reed’s rear bumper. The pair ran nose to tail the final lap with Reed stopping Martin’s charge to take the win. Mintz, Andrews and Shaffer rounded out the top five.

Jamie Miller and Steve Rando brought the field to green for the 25 lap 305 sprint feature but Miller would get side ways in turn one, collecting George Englert who took a wild ride and also collecting Chase Dunham. While no one was hurt, the incident moved Weaver to the outside of the front row for the second start.

Rando grabbed the early lead over Weaver, Kyle Peters, Tyler Street, John Ivy and Brandon Moore before the caution flew for a Justin Adams spin with three laps scored. By lap eight Rando and Weaver were running side by side and would continue to do battle until Adams brought out the caution again n lap 10. When the green flew the battle up front resumed between Weaver and Rando with Street, Nate Dussel, John Ivy, Peters and Kyle Capodice in tow.

A final caution on lap 16 for a Joe Armbruster spin set up the dash to the finish with Weaver leading Rando, Street, Dussel, Peters and John Ivy. Weaver steadily pulled away after the green came back out but six laps to go his car began smoking and Rando closed as did Street, John Ivy and Capodice. Weaver was able to nurse his mount to the checkers over Rando, Street, Dussel and Peters.

Daniel Roepke and track champion Dustin Keegan brought the field to green for the 20 lap dirt truck A-main with Keegan gaining the advantage over Kent Brewer and Roepke. Brewer took over the top spot on lap two with Roepke moving into second three circuits later. Valenti charged from seventh to third by lap seven and joined the battle for the lead between Brewer and Roepke. Valenti took the lead by a bumper on lap 10 as the caution flew.

When the green reappeared the three truck break-away between Valenti, Brewer and Roepke resumed with Brewer regaining the top soot on lap 13 only to see Valenti return the favor with five laps to go. Valenti, Brewer and Roepke continued their entertaining battle up front until the checkers flew. Valenti held off Brewer, Roepke, Steve Endicott and Keith Sorg at the checkers.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, Sept. 30 when the Rick’s Truck and Equipment Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) non-wing sprints pay a visit for the Mike Hensel Memorial on Fort Ball Pizza Palace Night with the 305 sprints, trucks and late models joining the action.

Eric Humphries Triumphant In Night One At Meridian With Royal Purple NSRA Winged Sprintcars/King Of The Wing

By Ben Deatherage

Meridian, Idaho-Meiridan Speedway would be invaded for the first of two nights, by both the Royal Purple NSRA Winged Sprintcars and King Of The Wing groups, on Friday, September 15th. It marked the third occasion the NSRA regulars had visited the 1/4-mile oval. Twenty-nine teams would make the journey from the American states of Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, and Utah as well as the Canadian province of British Columbia.

Chowchilla, California driver Eric Humphries would start on the front row and was the leader on the opening lap. He would remain in the position the entire way as he went on to win his first race of the season with both the Royal Purple NSRA Winged Sprintcars and King Of The Wings. It also is the first career King Of The Wing for the Central Valley native.

Meridian's Bryan Warf was a respectable second followed by fellow Meridian pilot Johnny Geisler, in third. The rest of the top five would be made up of fourth finishing Matt Hein, out of Roseburg, Oregon, and Tristen Spiers, out of Adrian, Oregon and racing for Joey and Sarah Moore, in fifth.

Matt Hein was the quickest in qualifying in the early stages of the night. Heat race winners were Austin Carter of Clovis, California, Johnny Giesler, Hein, and Carmichal, California's Tom Baker. Ryan Orchard, from Sidney, British Columbia, was the victor in the consolation feature.

RYAN BELTZ WINS FREEDOM 38’ER SPORTSMAN FEATURE AND KYLE SMITH TAKES MASS SPRINT CAR WIN AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY ON SATURDAY NIGHT

BECHTELSVILLE, PA September 16, 2017. . . Seasoned veteran Ryan Beltz fought it out with youngster Ryan Lilick right down to the wire to go on and claim a very popular win, Friday night at Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA, pocketing $1,500 for his triumph in the fourth annual Sportsman Freedom 38’er. With his win, the 43-year-old Beltz became the 13th different driver to earn a Sportsman feature win this season, taking his first win this season, the second of his career and his first since May 28, 2016. The win makes Beltz the fourth different driver to win the event in its four-year race history.

In a companion 25-lap feature event for the Mid-Atlantic 305 Sprint Series at the high-banked third-mile dirt track, a dominating triumph was scored by Kyle Smith in his first visit ever to the track.

“I am certain I drove the only four coil car at the track tonight to victory,” announced Beltz, following a roof dance in victory lane. “I’ve got to give thanks to Ryan Watt for all the help he has given us this season, plus Bicknell Race Cars. We just went back to basics tonight. We had a different engine in and just haven’t had a lot of luck here the last few weeks. We had a good race car and everything just came together for us here tonight.”

Following the heat races the top 20 qualified cars, all, picked for spots in a blind draw, with Brian Hirthler, 35, out of Perkiomenville, PA picking the pole to start, with former 358 Modified racer Doug Pannepacker pulling outside the front row. Beltz picked third to start in the 26-car starting field.

With the green waved by starter Ray Kemp it was Hirthler setting the early pace aboard his self-owned No. 4* Four Star Letting Sportsman mount over Pannepacker and Beltz through the first five tours. On lap 6 it was Beltz moving into the runner-up role, dropping Pannepacker to third.

With seven in the record books, Hirthler had nearly a full straightaway lead over Beltz, steering his self-owned KAM Fueled Racing No. 221 entry.

Craig Whitmoyer, 42, of Hamburg, PA, who won the event back in 2015 and started from eighth Friday night, was on the move and by lap 13 he advanced into fourth-place behind Beltz and Pannepacker. A lap 19 caution slowed things and regrouped the field, erasing the big lead held by Hirthler.

When racing resumed it was Hirthler out in front again over Whitmoyer, who ducked underneath Beltz through turn 3 on the restart, and Beltz now running in third. Pannepacker fell back to fourth, with Lilick, who started fourteenth, moving to fifth.

By lap 25 Hirthler again started to pull away, holding a comfortable lead.

Lilick began to pick off positions and took fourth with seven circuits to go. A lap later, Whitmoyer saw his night come to an early end when his motor expired in a huge cloud of smoke to bring out the caution with six to go.

On the double-file restart Hirthler selected to start from the outside, putting Beltz on the bottom. With the green, it was Beltz outgunning Hirthler and becoming the new race leader for lap 33. Lilick advanced to third and took second a lap later, as Hirthler dropped back to third.

“He kept picking the top on the restarts and I just kept praying, eventually, I’d get the jump and we did,” Beltz said. “Everybody was going to the top and I figured, eventually, they’d rub everything away up on top and I still had good grip on the bottom. I got a good run on him the previous restart, but he held on.”

With a lap remaining, Lilick hit Beltz hard, but Beltz held on, as they battled for the win.

“When he hit me I wound up losing my brakes. That last lap I was driving it balls to the wall or else without brakes,” explained the driver out of Schwenksville, PA. “I figured at the end if he went high I’d go low and if he stayed low I’d go high. I wasn’t about to give it away and settle for second.”

Racing through turns 3 and 4 with the checkered waving, Lilick drifted up to the top to protect, as Beltz drove it in on the bottom. Beltz had the edge exiting turn 4 and crossed the line first, winning by a narrow margin over Lilick at the line.

Third went to Hirthler, trailed by Brad Grim, Brett Gilmore and Brian Papiez, who started the event from 21st with the original green.

Heat races for 50 Sportsman entries were won by Hirthler, Mike Lisowski, Ryan Higgs and Beltz. Twin consolations went out to Papiez and Matt Stangle.

In the 25-lap Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series (MASS) feature race it was Brian Krummel, who started outside the front row taking the early lead over pole sitter Steph Carberry and third-starter Austin Bishop. By lap 6, Krummel held a safe lead.

Lap 12 it was still Krummel setting a torrid pace, as Bishop slipped into second, as the leaders raced through heavy slower, lapped traffic. Carberry fell into third. A lap later, Samantha Lieberman spun out in turn 3, as Bishop tried to avoid the spinning car. Bishop darted to the outside and smacked the boiler plate wall hard to bring out the red at the crossed flags.

With the restart it was Carberry outracing Krummel off turn 4 to become the new race leader. Smith roared into second spot, with Krummel falling to third. Smith quickly went by Carberry to become the new race leader, with Carberry dropping to second on lap 15. A lap later Krummel spun it out in turn 2 to bring out a caution.

Smith retook the top spot in front of Carberry and by lap 21 Smith was nearly a full straightaway out in front of Carberry. Eddie Wagner was running third, with Dave Brown now fourth.

Smith easily secured the win, with Carberry, Wagner, Eddie Strada and Tim Tanner Jr. chasing him.

Heat races for 30 Sprint Cars were claimed by Wagner, Bishop and Krummel. The consolation win went to Stephanie Dodson.

Some 25 358 Modified cars were also on hand for several practice sessions throughout the evening of racing.

Bryan Warf Tames Royal Purple NSRA Winged Sprintcar/King Of The Wings Field At Magic Valley

By Ben Deatherage

Twin Falls, Idaho-Magic Valley Speedway would open up the triple header race weekend for both the Royal Purple NSRA Winged Sprintcars as well as the Royal Purple King Of The Wing groups. The Thursday, September 14th, event would beat out the rain that was at times a nuisance and completed the whole entire program. Twenty-nine teams would make the journey from the American states of Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, and Utah as well as the Canadian province of British Columbia.

Earning the pole starting position local favorite Bryan Warf would take over the lead once the green flag dropped. The Meridian chauffeur would keep the Pat Russell owned entry in front of the rest of the field for the entire distance. It would be the second victory of the current campaign against the Royal Purple NSRA Winged Sprintcars and is his first career King Of The Wing triumph.

Johnny Giesler, also from Meridian, was second while grabbing third would be Matt Hein, out of Roseburg, Oregon. The balance of the top five consisted of fourth finishing Eric Humprhies, from Chowchilla, California, and Langley, British Columbia's Aaron Willison, making an appearance in the Rod and Gord Rendle machine, in fifth.

Jason Conn, making the extremely long tow from Prince George, British Columbia, was quickest in time trials. Heat race winners were Quesnel, British Columbia veteran Ron Larson, Meridian native Colton Nelson, Salt Lake City, Utah's Kyle Bergener, and Bryan Warf. Kyle Alberding, from Winston, Oregon and racing for car owner Art Holte, won the consolation feature.

Meridian Speedway will be the site of the final two races of the 2017 season for the Royal Purple NSRA Winged Sprintcars.

Kerzman Holds Off Emerson By .175 Seconds For Legendary 100 Win New Richmond, WI

By: Greg Parent, UMSS Media Director (9-14-17)

Jeremy Kerzman of Gray Eagle, MN is no stranger to Rock Auto Victory Lane at the Cedar Lake Speedway. Coming into the Legendary 100 non-point show for the UMSS Traditional sprint cars on Thursday evening September 14, Kerzman had won six times at the popular western Wisconsin dirt oval in TSCS action over the past couple of seasons. Make that seven wins now, as Kerzman held off rookie competitor Caley Emerson by .175 seconds at the finish to record his fifth win of the season and fourth at Cedar Lake in 2017. The win paid Kerzman $500, as he became the first Traditional sprint car driver to earn a Legendary 100 title. Twice in the previous two years the Traditional sprints had attempted to run at the Legendary 100, and twice those planned opening night events were washed out. Not so on this very warm and muggy late summer night.

Even though it was a non-point event, a decent turnout of seventeen non-winged sprints signed into the pits. Two heat races were run. Cam Schafer made a last lap pass of Rick Kobs to win the first heat while Richert Memorial winner Mike Mueller passed Brad Peterson on lap 4 to win the second heat. The top four cars in passing points drew for starting positions in the first two rows of the feature. Schafer drew the pole with Kerzman outside. Mueller and Jon Lewerer comprised the second row.

All seventeen cars took the green flag for the 25 lap feature race. Kerzman immediately jumped up top and set a quick pace. The lone caution of the race flew when Bryan Roach spun in turn 4 with seven laps scored. Kerzman took off again on the restart, as rookie competitor Caley Emerson began working his way forward from fourth. Emerson had started fifth on the grid. On lap 12, Emerson moved past Mueller for second. Sixth starter Rick Kobs, subbing for the injured Ty Sampair in his N1 sprinter, was also working his way forward. On lap 18, Kobs moved to third place. The laps continued to click off under the green, but fans could see that both Emerson and Kobs were slowly closing the margin on the leader. With just a couple laps to go, Emerson closed to within a few car lengths of Kerzman with Kobs close behind. A hard charge coming to the white flag would see Emerson close up right behind Kerzman, but Kerzman stretched his advantage a bit exiting turn two on the final lap. Another valiant effort in turn four on the final lap would see Emerson come up just .175 seconds short at the checkers in an exciting finish. Kobs wasn't far behind the lead duo to finish third. Rounding out the top five finishers was Schafer and Lewerer. Jake Kouba, Mueller, Jimmy Kouba, Blake Anderson and late model racer Harry Hanson completed the top ten. Only one car failed to finish with fifteen cars still on the lead lap at the checkers.

The Traditional sprints will close out their season on Friday and Saturday, September 15-16, at the Clay County Fair in Spencer, Iowa and at the Deer Creek Speedway south of Rochester. They will be joined by the UMSS 360 winged sprints and the IRA 410 Outlaw Sprints both nights. Weather permitting, the Spencer race will mark the first time the Traditional sprints have ventured to Iowa. They were scheduled to race in Iowa on August 26 at Decorah, but rainy weather forced cancellation of that event.

Meseraull Masters Montpelier Monster BOSS Field
The Rick’s Trucks & Equipment BOSS sprint car tour made a triumphant return to the Montpelier Motor Speedway in Montpelier, Indiana Saturday night. Last season’s annual event fell victim to mother nature. The much anticipated return found forty-six sprint cars signing in for battle on the very well prepared quarter mile dirt oval.
The cars were divided into five heat races of 8 laps with the top 4 transferring to the 25 lap main event. Thomas Meseraull, Isaac Chapple, Dustin Smith, Shane Cottle and J.J. Hughes claimed heat race wins. Twin B-Main wins were picked up by Ty Tilton and Michael Fischesser. The top 2 drivers from each heat race redrew for starting positions and rookie driver Gage Etgen drew the pole with Meseraull starting from the second position.
At the drop of the green flag, Etgen rocketed to a quick early lead and showed the way for the first 3 circuits on the dust free, historic bullring. However, action would slow for the first of 3 interruptions when Dustin Ingle looped his mount.
On the restart, second running Thomas Meseraull made his move on the race leader in turns 1 and 2 and became the race’s official leader on lap 4. Another early yellow would fly for a spin on the seventh circuit for Todd Keen. Back under green, Meseraull continued to show the way but 7th starting Shane Cottle was on the prowl in the Hazen 57 getting to the runner-up spot and starting to apply pressure on the leader. Ninth starting Justin Grant in the McGhee 17 was also on the move chasing down the lead pair.
The night’s only red flag came on lap 18 when J.J. Hughes spun after contact with another car. Hard running Steve Irwin from Fenton, Michigan had nowhere to go, clipped the disabled Hughes 76, launching the Irwin Flying Zero into a vicious series of barrell rolls in turn 4. Thankfully he emerged unhurt.
The final 7 circuits featured some incredible racing back through the pack as Matt Westfall advanced 10 spots, Drew Rader advanced 11 positions and Cooper Clouse earned the “Hard Charger” award advancing 12 spots with a 20th to 8th place run.
However, up front, Meseraull would turn back all challengers in the former SST Motorsports number 41 wrenched by Dave Stensland. Cottle, the 2015 event winner, had to settle for second with Grant third. Isaac Chapple and Tyler Hewitt completed the top 5. Rounding out the top 10 were Westfall, Lee Underwood, Clouse, Dustin Smith and Gage Etgen.
The BOSS series wishes to extend a big thank you to the forty-six teams who made the trip to Montpelier making it the largest car count of the season thus far for the tour. Also, a sincere thank you to the many fans who braved the chilly night time temperatures. Finally, to the staff at Montpelier Motor Speedway, a thank you for the best racing surface the tour has had all season.

Bailey Hibbard Wins Third Kendall Oil Sprint Car Feature At Southern Oregon Speedway

By Don Martin II

White City, Oregon...September 9...Bailey Hibbard wrapped up the 2017 Kendall Oil Sprint Car season with his third 25 lap Main Event win Saturday night at Southern Oregon Speedway. Hibbard blew a motor in his normal car, prompting his father David Hibbard to put him in his Hansen & Sons Trucking/Dave's Floor & Vinyl Liquidators #3 car for the night. With three feature wins, Kyler Barraza had already clinched the championship, and D. Hibbard was second in points coming into the night. His decision not to race left the battle between B. Hibbard and rookie Merissa Henson for second. Henson came into the night leading B. Hibbard by just eight points, and she beat him by just one point for the runnerup position.

Rookie Enrique Jaime started his night off with his first career six lap heat race win ahead of B. Hibbard. Kinzer Cox spent the preliminaries being chased by 14 year old phenom Tanner Holmes. Cox beat Holmes to win both their heat race and the four lap Scramble. Cox and Holmes shared the front row of the Main Event, and Cox raced into the lead at the green flag. B. Hibbard charged into second on the opening lap and made an inside pass on the front stretch a lap later to take the lead from Cox. Holmes was running strong in third, while Henson held fourth. The only yellow flag of the race flew on lap 18 for David Johnson in Turn 3. B. Hibbard remained in command on the restart, and Cox was starting to feel pressure from Holmes. An inside pass on the back stretch of the 21st lap gained Holmes second from Cox. B. Hibbard drove a great race and wrapped up his best season yet with the victory. Holmes was a strong second as Cox settled for third. Henson used a lead lap fourth place finish to wrap up an impressive rookie season in second in the final standings. Camden Robustelli, Hedge Carter, Jaime and Johnson completed the finishing order.

McCarthy Scores Second Winged 360 Sprint Main Event Win At Antioch Speedway

By Don Martin II

Antioch, CA...September 9...Art McCarthy won the 20 lap All Star Series Winged 360 Sprint Car Main Event Saturday night at Antioch Speedway. The win paid $1,200 and was McCarthy's second win in the past three races. He finished second in between his two wins and now trails Marissa Polizzi by 27 points in the championship battle. Burt Foland Jr. came into the night ranked second in the standings. Despite finishing second to McCarthy in the Main Event, he slipped to one point behind McCarthy and 28 behind Polizzi.

McCarthy won his eight lap heat race ahead of Foland, while Dan Gonderman won his heat race ahead of Ricky Brophy. Gonderman was making his third start of the season after a solid third place point season last year. McCarthy raced into the lead at the start, and Foland raced past Gonderman for second. Jacob Tuttle spun in Turn 4 to bring out a lap two caution flag. McCarthy paced one more lap before the second and final caution flag flew for David Dias on the back stretch. When the green flag flew, McCarthy continued to set the pace ahead of Foland and Gonderman. McCarthy caught a slower car around lap 15 and took his time lapping them. Foland closed in on McCarthy, but McCarthy finally got by the slower car. The leaders caught traffic again on the final lap, but McCarthy held on for the win. Foland settled for his fourth second place finish with Gonderman a strong third. Polizzi brought it home in fourth, followed by Brophy, Matt DeMartini, Tim Burcher, Tuttle and Dias.

The All Star Series Winged 360 Sprint Cars return to action on Saturday night as part of the John Soares Sr. Memorial Top Dog race. They wrap up their season on September 23rd. It's a three car battle for the championship between Polizzi, McCarthy and Foland, while Tuttle has moved into fourth in his rookie season. For further information, go to www.antiochspeedway.com.

Ledger Conquers NCRA, Nebraska Sprint Victory at Junction Motor Speedway!
McCool Junction, Nebraska – September 9, 2017 - Cody Ledger took the lead late then held on to claim the National Championship Racing Association of Park City, Kansas presented by Precise Racing Products/Nebraska Carpetland and Malvern Bank Sprint Series feature Saturday night at Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, Nebraska.
Danny Jennings and Seth Brahmer started on the front row for the twenty-five-lap feature with Brahmer taking the lead as the green flag fell. Jennings, Ledger and Jason Martin gave chase with Jennings attempting to slide underneath the leader entering turns three and four as Brahmer would hold on to the lead.
With ten laps to go Jennings would get past Brahmer heading down the backstretch to take the lead, but would get caught in lapped traffic and see Ledger take the lead one lap later.
The caution would come out when Fred Mattox clipped the front stretch wall and came to a stop.
On the restart, it was Ledger out front followed by Jennings, Martin, Brahmer and seventh starting Jeremy Campbell.
The leaders reached the slower cars on lap sixteen allowing Jennings to close. That’s when Jennings night would come to an end as he executed a series of flips down the backstretch to bring out the red flag. Jennings was uninjured but done for the night.
Martin moved into the runner-up position on the restart but Ledger was up to the task and kept out front before the final caution would wave with six laps to go when Tyler Dreuke lost a motor on the front stretch.
There was no catching Ledger on the final restart and he would go on to claim the victory and the $2500 first place prize.
Martin came home second while Brahmer settled for third. Current NCRA point leader Campbell finished fourth while defending NCRA champion Don Droud, Jr. worked his way up from his fourteenth starting position to round out the top five.
Next up for the NCRA sprint car division will be this coming Saturday night (September 16) at Thunder Hill Speedway in Mayetta for their first and only appearance on the season.

Bayston Victorious in 31st Annual Tom Knowles Memorial

Spoon River, IL - Spencer Bayston of Lebanon, Indiana notched another POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League victory to his resume, claiming the 31st Annual Tom Knowles Memorial at Spoon River Speedway.

Starting outside row two, Bayston quickly jumped to second in the opening laps and begun chasing down Tyler Thomas with Zeb Wise in tow. After making it around Thomas, Bayston distanced himself from the field, while the battle for second through fourth intensified as Thomas, Wise, and Tanner Thorson jockeyed for position. With 12 laps completed, the red was displayed for Jake Neuman who blew a tire and flipped out of turn three. Neuman was alright, but done for the night.

Leading the field back to green, Bayston worked to build back up the cushion he had between himself and Wise, Thorson and Thomas. With 17 laps in the books, the yellow was displayed as Tucker Klaasmeyer slowed exiting turn two with a flat tire. Klaasmeyer's team was able to change the tire and he joined the field at the tail end.

Coming back to green, Bayston was followed by Wise, Thorson and Zach Daum. Going immediately to work, Daum meticulously worked the bottom, dispatching of Thorson, Wise, and then set his sights on Bayston for the lead. Taking the lead off turn two, Daum took the top position by mere feet while Bayston rode the extreme top side of the high-banked Spoon River Speedway. Coming down the backstretch, Bayston shot to the bottom entering turn three, making contact with Daum, resulting in Daum spinning and going for a wild ride. The red was displayed and Daum's night was over.

With 24 laps completed, Bayston led the remaining six. Zeb Wise captured his career-best, a second place finish, while Tanner Thorson took third. Logan Seavey took fourth, while Chris Windom rounded out the top five.

"This is definitely a good open track with plenty of room to run," commented Spencer Bayston. "It's what I prefer. I was planning on going down there, but I probably should have waiting another lap. We raced hard, but I'm happy to come home with the win." "This is just overall, a good run," said Zeb Wise. "This is a pretty fun, wide track. This is by far the fastest track I've been to."

"This is a pretty big racetrack," stated Tanner Thorson. "A little slick and what not, but it's a fun race track. It's great to race with some of the young talent."

Mueller, Fieber, Green, Ruh nail down PDTR titles

Miller posts first career PDTR Sprint Car A-main win

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 9, 2017 – On a night when four of the five regular Plymouth Dirt Track Racing divisions crowned 2017 champions at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds third-mile clay oval, one of the biggest turnouts of cars and fans of the season gathered to join in the festivities Saturday, Sept. 9.

In the Late Model division, 30-year veteran Brad Mueller of Random Lake claimed his third A-main victory of the 2017 campaign and his fourth career PDTR Late Model title. Cascade’s Mark Fieber racked up his second career title in the Grand National division. Justin Green of Sheboygan Falls collected his first career B Mod championship and rookie Preston Ruh of Elkhart Lake secured the Micro Sprint crown.

In main event action, Plymouth’s Justin Miller held off a hard charge from two-time PDTR Sprint Car champion Danny Schlafer of Sussex to earn his first career 25-lap Sprint Car A-main victory at Plymouth. Tyler Kulow of Plymouth notched his first PDTR Grand National A-main victory of the 2017 season in the 25-lap A main. Jared Siefert of Luxemburg raced to his first PDTR B Mod triumph of the season, while Zach Boden of Cambridge captured his third 15-lap Micro Sprint A-main victory of the 20017 PDTR campaign.

Polesitter Justin Miller grabbed the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap Sprint Car A main with 2010 PDTR Sprint Car champ Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee, who started on the outside of the front row, following in second.

On lap 4, Davis closed in to challenge Miller along the high groove. Two laps later, 2008 PDTR Sprint Car champ Lance Fassbender spun in turn two while running third, which brought out the first caution flag of the race.

With Miller running the high groove, Davis worked the middle to low lanes in an attempt to oust the lead from Miller when green flag action resumed. On lap 12, Davis attempted to slide past Miller in turn two, but Miller held strong to retain the lead.

The action really heated up two laps later when seventh starter Danny Schlafer joined the duel for the lead. With Miller sticking to the top, Davis running the middle and Schlafer working the low line, the three drivers raced three-wide on lap 17 with Miller holding the slightest of advantages over the two most successful drivers in the history of the Midwest Sprint Car Association.

On lap 18, Davis worked past Miller exiting turn two to seize the lead. However, Davis got very high in turn three and clipped the wall in turn four to bring out the second caution of the race and end his chance at victory.

Miller regained the lead on the restart with Schlafer trailing in second. Miller got a good job on the restart to pull out to a quarter straightaway cushion before Schlafer battled back to mount a late charge. The hard-charging Schlafer slipped past Miller along the inside lane to seize the lead on lap 24.

However, Miller pulled off a big power move on the cushion in turns one and two to regain the lead on the final lap and nip Schlafer by one car length at the finish line to register his first career PDTR Sprint Car main event victory and his second overall MSA A-main triumph.

Schlafer had to settle for second, eighth starter Jim Melis of Glenbeulah finished third, fifth starter Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove placed fourth and Kevin Karnitz of West Bend, who started sixth, placed fifth.

With extra money added to the Late Model A-main purse for the evening, courtesy of an effort led by Late Model supporters Chad Marquardt and Greg Wester, a strong field of 28 Late Models checked into the pit area with 22 lining up for the main event.

Outside front row starter Billy Rezutek of Big Bend grabbed the lead on the drop of the green flag ahead of polesitter Joe Reuter of Green Bay. On lap 3, Brad Mueller, who started fourth, worked around Reuter to take over second while sixth starter Chris Carlson of Union Grove gained third on lap 5.

With Rezutek running the extreme high groove, Mueller found grip in the middle of the wide, slick track surface to pull even with Rezutek on lap 8. After a brief side-by-side duel, Mueller assumed the top spot on lap 9.

Carlson then moved in to battle Rezutek for second place on lap 14 before taking over the runner-up position one lap later. However, Mueller was not to be denied at the head of the field as he rolled to his third A-main victory of the season and 19th career PDTR Late Model A-main triumph by five car lengths over Carlson to secure his fourth career PDTR Late Model championship.

Carlson was second, Reuter placed third, third starter Jared Siefert of Luxemburg placed fourth and eighth starter Taylor Scheffler of Waukesha rounded out the top five in the caution-free race.

Polesitter Tyler Kulow assumed the lead on the drop of the green flag in the Grand National main event with 2008 PDTR Grand National champ Matt Yancey trailing in second. The first of four caution flags appeared on lap 2 for a spin involving Matt Jackson of Sheboygan in turn two.

On lap 3, fourth starter Mark Fieber moved past Yancey into second with Dotyville’s Matt Loehr, who started fifth, following into third. With the top three cars running in nose-to-tail fashion along the low groove, Loehr began to apply heavy pressure to Fieber on lap 15 before diving under Fieber to take second on lap 18.

Three consecutive caution periods slowed the race starting on lap 21. When the race resumed, Fieber outpowered Loehr to regain second on lap 22, while seventh starter Jeff Lammers of Plymouth slipped past Loehr to take third.

Meanwhile, Kulow pulled away to claim his second career PDTR Grand National A-main triumph. Fieber secured his second Grand National title by placing second, Lammers was third, Loehr took fourth and Kurt Davis came up for his 10th starting spot to finish fifth.

After two aborted starts, Jared Siefert gained the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap B Mod A main from his outside front row starting position. On lap 4, third starter Chad Vetting of Valders worked past polesitter Gary Glander of Sheboygan Falls to take over second, while Travis Schmidt of Plymouth moved up from the fifth starting position to take over third on lap 8.

Siefert was strong out front as he built up a full straightaway lead over Vetting by lap 12. The third and final caution flag of the event was displayed on lap 18 when John Singer spun in turn four.

Four laps later Schmidt used the high groove to work past Vetting into second place. However, it was all Siefert at the head of the field en route to his first career PDTR B Mod A-main victory.

Schmidt placed second, Vetting was third, Randy Lemieux placed fourth after starting 10th and Glander rounded out the top five.

Chad Bogar of Sun Prairie took the lead in the early going of the 15-lap Micro Sprint A main from the third starting spot. On lap 8, Zach Boden, who started sixth, moved into to challenge Bogar for the lead.

On lap later, Boden executive a low move in turn one to take the lead for good. The 2016 PDTR Micro Sprint champion cruised the rest of the way to a full straightaway victory over Bogar. Jack Vanderboom of Dousman placed third after starting seventh, fifth starting Dave Collins of Madison was fourth and second starter Preston Ruh wrapped up the 2017 PDTR Micro Sprint title with a fifth place showing.

Prior to the racing program, Randy Markwardt of Sheboygan was presented with the PDTR Dedication to Dirt Award for his efforts during a long and successful racing career, which began with Eastern Wisconsin Stock Cars at Plymouth in 1977.

During his career, Markwardt racked up two track championships at Plymouth in the Sportsman (1993) and Limited Late Model (1999) divisions and was one of the most popular drivers with fans. Markwardt, who was inducted into the Southeastern Wisconsin Short Track Racing Hall of Fame in 2014, announced his retirement from racing earlier this year with Saturday’s PDTR program serving as his final race.

Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum won the Sprint Car B main, Dave Fieber of Neenah captured the Late Model B main and Steve Lorier of Sheboygan won the B Mod B main.

A total of 111 cars check into the pit area for the evening, including 29 Sprint Cars, 28 Late Models, 24 B Mods, 22 Grand Nationals and 8 Micro Sprints.

After two weekends off, the final race of the season at The Plymouth Dirt Track is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 30. The program will feature the final points night for the PDTR 360 Sprint Car division, along with the Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car, Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Cars and Wisconsin-Illinois Mini Sprints.

Steve Poirier Goes to the Top to Take Checkers at Can-Am Motorsports with Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints

By MIKE MALLETT

LaFARGEVILLE, NY – For the sixth time in his career Steve Poirier found himself in victory lane at Caprara’s Can-Am Motorsports. The seven-time champion made a late race rally to go from third to first for this fourth feature win of the season with the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints.

Poirier picked up $2,025 for his win in the NAPA Auto Parts U.S. Tour/SUNY Canton Series event.

Poirier started the feature from the sixth position making moves early to find himself third before five laps were complete. From there he settled in battling with Jeff Cook for second. He was never able to clear him until the final few laps. Poirier elected to step out of line and take a chance on the outside. That chance paid off as he ended up scoring his 65th career series win.

“The last seven or eight races we’ve been good,” cited Poirier. “Our program came back. We tried some things earlier in the season that didn’t work. We needed to improve because everyone is working hard to battle with us. We had to go back to our old stuff which still works really good. I’m happy here. It’s strange, sometimes we are really good at Can-Am or sometimes we struggle bad. Tonight was a night we were good.”

Matt Tanner and Cook made up the front row for the start of the A-Main. Cook beat Tanner to one to take the lead before Tanner utilized the high lane around the top of turns three and four to go to the front. They remained the top two in the running order with Poirier in tow in third.

Tanner caught the first bits of traffic with seven laps on the scoreboard. He made a couple quick moves to keep Cook behind him. Cook was relentless in his pressure of Tanner to the point where he was able to pull up next to him on the 11th lap. He nearly got the lead but Tanner rallied to stay in front.

As a result of the move by Cook, Tanner changed his lane drastically on the speedway moving down to the bottom of the track with Cook following. At halfway Tanner was gaining on very thick traffic.

Tanner refused to move off the bottom believing that was the quickest lane on the speedway. Cook stayed in line while Poirier closed up on both of them as they navigated traffic. The pair got lined up nose to tail with Tanner strong on the bottom.

Five laps remained when Poirier made his move. Cook was boxed in on the bottom through turns three and four. Poirier jumped out of line and ran the high-side to take second as they raced back to the start-finish line. Tanner was in a similar situation in turns one and two. Poirier again went to the top to take the lead as they exited the second corner to lead lap 21.

“I thought I was going to be third,” commented Poirier. “Then I saw those lapped cars. So I thought maybe I could try the outside. I was stuck in third so I’ll try it. They were so jammed and I have just enough bite on the outside. I was happy that I made it through that.”

Poirier drove away over the final four laps to end up the winner. Tanner’s night ended with a second place finish. A tough outcome after leading most of the race. The Stephentown, N.Y., pilot felt like the bottom was where he had to be.

“I knew I had to get to the bottom when Jeff (Cook) showed me the nose there,” stated Tanner. “There were a couple of lapped cars that weren’t giving us any room. I was playing it out in my head whether I should try the outside and take a chance that nobody fills the bottom or just hang out where I was. I decided to stay on the bottom. Steve (Poirier) was sitting back in third and he could see where everybody was where I was looking at lapped cars. I didn’t know where second and third were. He had a little bit of an advantage and it worked out for him tonight.”

Cook, the local favorite from Antwerp, N.Y., was happy to finish on the podium in front of the home town fans. He got the loudest cheers as he parked his No. 10 on the frontstretch after the main-event.

“It’s been long time since I got to come down front here,” said Cook. “All the pressures of being at home and 27 people want to work on your car. Usually I can’t think straight. Tonight we got through that and finished in the top three. It’s a good thing.”

Paul Kinney finished the night in the fourth spot while Chad Miller had his best run of the season to finish fifth. The entire night from hot laps to A-Main checkers went without a caution flag.

Jason Barney long clinched the NAPA Auto Parts US Tour with sixth place finishing Danny Varin clinching the SUNY Canton Series here at Can-Am.

Dave Darland scores Lincoln Park Speedway sprint car victory - Jonny Newgent wins third straight super stock win; Bruce and Neal pick up victories

By CAREY FOX Times Sports Editor PUTNAMVILLE – Dave Darland’s late season surge continued Saturday night at Lincoln Park Speedway as the Lincoln, Ind. driver captured sprint car win number seven during the 2017 campaign. The same could be said for Greencastle’s Jonny Newgent as he pulled away after a late restart to win his third straight UMP Super Stock victory. Roy Bruce Jr. tuned up for this weekend’s Patriot 100 American Modified Series race by winning his second A-main of the year at LPS. Tyler Neal claimed the final feature of the night by edging Josh Litton for the bomber victory. Twenty-six sprint cars were on hand at the Putnamville oval as Worthington’s Jadon Rogers and Brazil’s Nate McMillin started on the front row. Jeff Bland Jr. started strong and led early on as McMillin ran second ahead of Darland and Rogers. Scott Hampton held the fifth spot as Shane Cockrum closed on the leaders by lap five. Cockrum would throttle into the top spot coming out of turn two on the 12th circuit before a caution flew. Cockrum maintained that advantage after the restart as Darland held the second spot over a charging Brent Beauchamp and Bland. Moments later Rogers got upside in turn four to bring out a red flag. Rogers walked away from the incident. On the restart, Cockrum’s night would come to a close with a broken front end as Darland assumed the top spot. Darland wouldn’t be denied the win after a couple of late restarts, running the bottom line to perfection as Bland came home second ahead of Beauchamp, Brandon Mattox and Scott Hampton. In the UMP Modified feature, Bruce made the most of starting on the pole, wiring the field despite several strong challenges. James Walters gave Bruce an early battle before the Bloomington driver began to open up some breathing room by lap 10. However, Jeff Deckard and Caleb Demoss were working to close the gap ahead of Richie Lex and Scott Ricketts. A caution flag on lap 15 re-set the field as Lex got a big run on the restart and began to close on the lead group of Bruce and Deckard. Lex would make the pass into the second spot with a couple laps to go and pulled even with Bruce. Coming into the final two corners, Lex ran the high line into three as Bruce got a bit sideways in turn four. However, Bruce was able to out drag race Lex to the finish line to win by several feet. Deckard held down third ahead of Walters and Dustin Beck. In the UMP Super Stock feature, Newgent took the lead in the opening couple laps and didn’t look back on the way to the win ahead of Wes McClara. The pair started on the front row and held the rest of the field at bay to run 1-2 as Steve Hollars snagged third ahead of Aubrey Eagan and Kenny Carmichael Sr. The final feature of the night provided another battle to the wire as Neal was able to track down initial leader, Josh Litton, with three laps remaining. Litton held the top spot from the opening green flag with David Bumgardner running second ahead of CJ Bryan and Neal. The lead pack quickly found lapped traffic by lap eight and one lap later a mechanical issue in Bryan’s car caused the No. 86 car to get upside down to bring out the red flag. Bryan was able to walk away from the incident. When the field went green once again, Litton maintained his lead as Neal closed on his rear bumper with five laps remaining. Neal pulled even with Litton and edged ahead moments before a caution slowed the field. Neal restarted out front and held down the top spot over the final two circuits as Bumgardner placed third ahead of Jordan Almanza and Jason Hunt.

Ryan Bowers Wins UMSS Portion of Richert Memorial For Second Time New Richmond, WI

By: Greg Parent, UMSS Media Director (9-9-17)

Once again the weather was outstanding for the running of the 17th Annual Jerry Richert, Sr. Memorial race at the Cedar Lake Speedway on Saturday evening September 9. And once again, Ryan Bowers of Ham Lake sat in Rock Auto Victory Lane following his first UMSS win of the season. Bowers won this event back in 2014 driving for the Mastell Brothers Racing team. Switch gears to 2017, and Bowers is now behind the wheel of the potent Seidenkranz Brothers sprinter. For the 2015-2016 UMSS Champion Bowers, it was his 11th career UMSS winged sprint car feature victory. Bowers and his team earned $1,500 for their efforts from a purse that was in excess of $8,000.

Brooke Tatnell was looking to make it two straight in UMSS competition and add another win to his series-leading 33 victories. Tatnell took the lead from Bowers on lap 13 and looked like he would do just that. On lap 21, Tatnell's Protofab 14 sprinter suddenly had a trail of smoke pour out from behind it entering turn three and Tatnell drove the car to the infield off of turn four. Bowers inherited the lead back and held off all challengers for his second Richert Memorial title.

The fantastic weather drew a field of 70 sprint cars in the three divisions on the program. The UMSS winged sprints drew 21 cars. Three heat races were run with Gregg Bakker, Derrik Lusk and Scott Bogucki picking up the wins. Two Challenge races rounded out the double qualifiers, as Tatnell and Bogucki were the winners. In the first Challenge race, Skylar Prochaska took a wild ride in turn two after hooking a rut in turn one and flipped over several times. Although Prochaska was okay, his Weisman sprinter was done for the night. Under the red, leader Mark Toews had his sprinter pushed to the pits with apparent engine problems and was also out of action for the remainder of the evening.

The battle for the Midwest Power Equipment/GRP Motorsports Series got interesting after the double round of qualifiers, as point leader Lusk had been called for a jump at the start of his heat race and Graf, who is second behind Lusk, got collected in a mishap at the start of the second Challenge race and had to restart at the tail minus his front nose wing. Bowers, sitting third in the Midwest Power points, did not have any issues and found himself on the outside front row for the feature. Bogucki would fire from the pole while Eric Lutz and Tatnell rolled off from row two. Graf and Lusk started seventh and eighth respectively for the 25 lap feature.

A spirited battle between Bowers and Bogucki took place at the drop of the green and culminated on the back stretch on the fourth lap of the feature when Bogucki tried to duck underneath Bowers. Tight quarters saw Bogucki make slight contact with the inside concrete wall near the end of the back straight and spin into the infield. His car was not damaged and Bogucki restarted 17th. Meanwhile Bowers continued to lead while Tatnell worked his way to second with Eric Lutz in third. Lutz suddenly pulled to the infield several laps later and was out of the race. The second and final caution waved when Chase Viebrock rolled to a stop in turn four with a broken rear end in his sprinter with 11 laps scored. Tatnell and Bowers swapped slide jobs over the course of the next couple of laps before Tatnell gained the advantage and lead.

Just when it was looking like Tatnell might race to his third Richert Memorial victory in UMSS competition, misfortune struck on lap 21 and he was out of the race. No caution was necessary, as Tatnell quickly drove his car to the infield. Bowers inherited the lead back. Not that we needed any more drama, but another very interesting story was developing. Bogucki had raced his way from the back of the field on the first restart all the way back up to second. Without a caution to close the gap on Bowers, Bogucki crossed the finish line in second. The story continues though, as in post-race tech Bogucki was DQed for not having any mufflers on his car, adding more drama to an already interesting feature race. All cars behind Bogucki moved up one spot in the final finishing order. Two-time and defending Midwest Power Series Champion Graf finished second ahead of current Midwest Power point leader Lusk. Bakker and Jamey Ogston rounded out the top five. Ogston arrived late, as he and his crew needed to make repairs following a crash in IRA action at Superior the night before. Completing the top ten finishers was Dean Brown, Wayne Modjeski, Rick Kobs, Kevin Bradwell and 305 racer Jeremy Schultz. Four cars were unable to start the feature due to mechanical problems or crashes. They included Prochaska, Toews, Jason Tostenson and Ronnie Erickson.

The Richert family and numerous sponsors always do a great job at adding bonus money to the UMSS portion of the program. In addition to the Midwest Power and GRP Motorsports money for their series, the Richert family (and sponsors) added money to the final 13 positions in the feature race. Rick Mastell from Mastell Brothers Racing also added three $100 bonuses. The UMSS Hard Charger Award went to Rick Kobs with a +10 gain. The UMSS Tough Luck Award had plenty of candidates. It ended up going to series regular Chase Viebrock. The final UMSS award from Mastell was a 10th place bonus that went to Jeremy Schultz. Traditional driver Tony Klose won the drawing at the drivers meeting for a free right rear Hoosier tire, as both UMSS divisions were eligible. Last place finishers in each feature also earned a special bonus from an anonymous donor via the Richert family. Those went to Elliot Amdahl in the UMSS winged sprints and Jimmy Kouba in the Traditional sprints. Drivers had to make an attempt to start the feature in order to be eligible.

All-in-all it was another great evening at the Richert Memorial for an event that honors the racing career of the "Rim Riding Gopher" and multi-time IMCA Champion Jerry Richert, Sr. of Forest Lake. Ian Madsen picked up his second Richert Memorial win in the IRA 410 Outlaw sprint portion of the program. The UMSS winged sprints will close out their season with two races next weekend. The inaugural appearance at the Clay County Fair in Spencer, Iowa will come on Friday evening September 15. The following night the series will head east a bit and close out the season at the Deer Creek Speedway on Saturday evening September 16. The battle for the Midwest Power Equipment/GRP Motorsports Series title is a good one with Derrik Lusk leading Chris Graf and Ryan Bowers coming into the final weekend. Graf pretty much has the 2017 UMSS season point title locked up. The main focus will be for the Midwest Power championship, as several strong competitors are expected to be on hand to compete in both races. The IRA 410 Outlaw sprints and the UMSS Traditional sprints will also be part of each racing program on the final weekend of the season.

The Wait is Over, Mike Mueller Wins Traditional Sprint Feature at Cedar Lake New Richmond, WI

 By: Greg Parent, UMSS Media Director (9-9-17)

The wait is over at Cedar Lake Speedway for Mike Mueller. It had been a little over five years ago when Mueller won in the Pro Stock division at the famous western Wisconsin dirt oval. Since then Mueller moved into the UMSS Traditional sprint cars and has won several feature races at other area tracks, but that elusive victory at Cedar Lake had eluded him until Saturday night September 9 during the running of the 17th Annual Jerry Richert, Sr. Memorial. The Traditional sprints were racing for the fourth time at this prestigious event, and Mueller drove around race leader Brian VanMeveren on lap 17 on his way to Rock Auto Victory Lane. For Traditional Sprint Car Series point leader Mueller, it was his fourth win of the season and tenth since joining the non-winged sprint car ranks in 2013 when he won the rookie title. With just a couple of point races left, Mueller has built a comfortable margin over his fellow competitors in his bid to become the 2017 series champion.

With superb weather, the 17th edition of the Richert Memorial drew a field of 70 sprint cars in the three divisions. The Traditional sprints turned out a very good field of 22 cars. Three heat races were run with VanMeveren, 2016 TSCS Champion Rick Kobs subbing for Ty Sampair in the N1 car, and 2015 Richert Memorial winner Jake Kouba picking up the wins. The top four cars in passing points, which included the three heat race winners and July 7 first-time winner Anna Hippe, drew for starting positions in the first two rows of the 25 lap feature. VanMeveren and Kobs were on the front row with Jake Kouba and Hippe in row two.

VanMeveren, who won for the first time himself at CLS back on July 29, immediately blasted into the early lead. Fifth starter Mueller slipped back a couple of spots in the early laps. Mueller moved up off the bottom of the track where several of lead cars were racing and began moving forward. The lone caution of the race flew when Tony Norem spun around on the front stretch with 11 laps scored. Mueller was up to third for the restart and timed his start well going to second by the completion of lap 12. VanMeveren continued to lead until lap 17 when Mueller drove around him on the outside for the top spot. Mueller would not be seriously challenged after that and went on to record his first CLS feature win. VanMeveren, Jake Kouba, Kobs and Cam Schafer completed the top five. Schafer won the $100 GRP Motorsports Hard Charger Award after advancing twelve positions from his 17th starting spot! Rounding out the top ten finishers was Hippe, Scott Brandt, Neal Matuska, Caley Emerson and August 19 first-time feature winner Brad Peterson. Seventeen of the 20 cars that took the green flag were running at the finish. Jimmy Kouba, driving the Pellersels 22 sprinter, attempted to fire off but returned to the pits while Hunter Custer was scratched after hot laps with an engine issue.

The Traditional sprints will try for the third consecutive year to race on Thursday night September 14 at the Legendary 100 at Cedar Lake. The previous two attempts in 2015 and 2016 rained out, so maybe the third time will be the charm. It is a non-point event. Following the Legendary 100 race, the Traditional sprint cars will close out their season at the Clay County Fair in Spencer, Iowa on Friday night September 15 and at the Deer Creek Speedway on Saturday September 16. Weather permitting, the Spencer race will mark the first time the Traditional sprints have ventured to Iowa. They were scheduled to race in Iowa on August 26 at Decorah, but rainy weather forced cancellation of that event.

Foos earns 2nd Fremont 410 win; Reed claims 7th track title

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – DJ Foos sliced his way through lapped traffic like a surgeon to claim his second 410 sprint win of the season at Fremont Speedway Saturday, Sept. 9 on Kistler Racing Products Night. It was the second win of the season at “The Track That Action Built” for the Fremont, Ohio native.

“Wow, to go through what we have gone through the past month and then come out here and get a win says a lot about this team. I had to make some moves in lapped traffic that were close. I ran the bottom to see what was done there and when Lee (Jacobs) opened the top in three and four…it was just too good up there for me not to take it,” said Foos beside his Jet Express, Crown Battery, Kistler Racing Products, Kistler Engines, JLH General Contractor, NAPA of Bryan; Shelluke’s Bar & Grill backed machine.

Monclova, Ohio’s Byron Reed came into the season championship night third in points, but a good qualifying effort, a heat race win and a fourth place feature finish propelled him to his 7th Fremont Speedway track championship.

“I usually don’t pay too much attention to heat races other than to make sure I make the transfer. Then I started doing the math and was like ‘I got a chance at this.’ I want to thank Fremont based Crown Battery for all they do for us and the great fans at Fremont Speedway,” Reed said.

The Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature was worth the price of the ticket as Bobby Clark, Paul Weaver and Nate Dussel battled each other and lapped traffic the last five laps. A caution with three laps to go gave Clark a clear track and the Fremont, Ohio driver scored his first win of the season and the 35th of his career at Fremont Speedway. It comes after Clark took a nasty spill last weekend at Waynesfield Raceway Park. Clark now sits 12th on the track’s all-time win list.

“I’m down to one car so I’m glad I got to start closer to the front tonight…I could be more careful that way. It’s been a terrible year; we’ve struggled all year. About the last month or so we figured some things out and the car’s been really good when I’m not crashing. I was glad to see that caution because I was having fits in lapped traffic. Every where I went they went to the same spot. I saw Paul (Weaver) the one time…I was comfortable with three to go but I was still waiting for the slide job,” said Clark beside his Fremont Fence, Kear’s Speed Shop, B&L Plumbing, Shelluke’s Bar, Nagy’s Equipment, Miller Rigging, Bit D’s Pizza, Schiet’s Motorsports, Willey’s Towing backed machine.

Dussel’s third place finish earned him a second consecutive track championship.

“I really didn’t come out here to point race…I kind of felt like we got that out of the way last year. We really wanted to win. This definitely helps considering we won two races this whole year and I feel like we’re a much better team than that. I didn’t want to see that last caution. Right before that I bounced it off the back stretch wall and I think I either bent the ladder or bent the right rear wheel and all of a sudden I could get rolling the bottom better,” said Dussel.

Wayne, Ohio’s John Brooks led flag to flag for his third win of the year in the McCullough Industries 602 Late Models. Brooks’ eighth career win at the track also garnered him his second straight track title.

“It took a little bit this year getting this car figured out. We had it working pretty good but made some changes today and put it on the scales and the scales broke. We didn’t know what we had. Then we loaded it in the trailer and the right front shock was broke too. It was a hell of a day but it worked out. Chris adjusted on it…it wasn’t worth a crap in hot laps. But he got it working good later,” said Brooks beside his Snack Time Vending, Foster Auto Repair backed #00.

Fostoria, Ohio’s Shawn Valenti continued his domination in the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks, recording his seventh feature win of the year. It marks is 39th career victory at Fremont Speedway, moving him to 11th on the track’s all-time win list.

“The guys give me a phenomenal truck once again. We had some issues and didn’t get to hot lap but the Jeff Babcock got it all figured out and here we are again. What a season,” said Valenti beside his A Plus Auto Center; Best Performance; Craig Miller Trucking; Dave Story Equipment; Real Geese backed #7B.

Fremont, Ohio’s Dustin Keegan drove to a third place finish to earn his first ever Fremont Speedway dirt truck track title.

“My dad and all the crew have given me a great truck all season. This is unbelievable…I used to sit in those stands and hope I’d get to race here one day and now to win a track championship…this is fantastic,” said an emotional Keegan.

Lee Jacobs and Foos led the field to green for the 30 lap Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint A-main with Jacobs gaining the advantage over Foos, Bryan Broughton, Travis Philo, Chris Andrews, Valenti and Reed. Foos took several looks to Jacob’s inside over the first hand full of laps with Philo driving into third on lap six. The leaders caught the back of the field on lap eight with Jacobs maintaining the lead over Foos, Philo, Andrews, Broughton, Reed, Broc Martin and Valenti.

Foos and Jacobs switched lines in turns three and four on lap 14 and Foos powered into the lead as they raced into very heavy lapped traffic. A caution at the half way point gave Jacobs a shot at regaining the lead but Foos was too strong on the restart. Andrews took third n lap 17 and started to close on Foos and Jacobs while Philo and Reed battled for fourth. With eight laps remaining Foos raced into very heavy lapped traffic and Jacobs and Andrews closed.

Jacobs took several looks to Foos’ inside while the leader was hung up behind a lapped car. Foos made some daring moves in traffic the last hand full of laps and drove to the win over Jacobs, Andres, Reed and Philo

Matt Foos and Jimmy McGrath paced the field for the 25 lap 305 sprint A-main with Foos jumping into the lead at the drop of the green. Following a caution after a lap was scored, Foos again maintained the lead as Tyler Street jumped into second over McGrath, Clark, Joe Armbruster and 12th starting Weaver. Clark moved into third on lap three with Weaver taking fourth a circuit later. Street spun while running second on lap seven.

Clark powered under Foos for the lead on lap nine as Weaver applied pressure for the runner-up spot finally taking it on lap 14. Weaver methodically cut into Clark’s lead and as they raced into heavy lapped traffic with seven laps to go, took several looks to Clark’s outside for the lead. Weaver made a big bobble on the cushion in turns three and four with four laps to go, as Dussel dove to his inside with Clark in both of their sights. But, a caution with three laps to go gave Clark a clear track and he was able to drive to the win over Weaver, Dussel, John Ivy and Jamie Miller.

Brooks and Keegan brought the field to green for the McCullough Industries 602 Late Model A-main with Brooks jumping into the lead. Ky Harper took second on lap two and pressured Brooks. Several cautions in the opening five laps kept the field close but when the green flew with 10 laps to go, Brooks had his hands full with Harper and Chester Fitch. While battling for second on lap eight, Harper and Fitch made heavy contact, ending Fitch’s night.

Brooks hit his marks perfectly with the remaining six laps and drove to the win over Harper, Keegan, Brad Mitten and Skeeter Fitch.

Mitten and Brad Stuckey led the field to green for the 20 lap dirt truck feature with Mitten gaining the upper hand. Stuckey led laps two and three by a front bumper with Valenti taking the top spot on lap four just before a multi-truck crash. The race would go the rest of the way caution free.

Valenti drove away from the field while the battle for second heated up involving Stuckey, Kent Brewer, Keith Sorg and Daniel Roepke. With eight laps in Valenti’s lead was about eight truck lengths with Roepke now second followed closely by Brewer, Stuckey, Keegan, Sorg and Jeff Ward. Valenti took the checkers nearly eight truck lengths ahead of Roepke, Brewer, Keegan and Ward.

Fremont Speedway will play host to the 10th Annual Jim & Joanne Ford Classic Friday and Saturday, Sept. 15 and 16. Huge purses are on tap for the 410 sprints both nights…stay tuned for more information!

Sellers Earns Sprint Series of Oklahoma “Pat Suchy Memorial!”

Meeker, Oklahoma – September 8, 2017 - Robert Sellers took advantage of race-long leader Loyd Clevenger’s misfortune to claim victory as the Sprint Series of Oklahoma IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car Series presented by Smiley’s Racing Products made their final appearance of the season at Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Oklahoma for the running of the second annual “Pat Suchy Memorial.”

Clevenger and leading rookie contender Tristan Oakes started on the front row for the thirty-lap-feature with Clevenger briefly taking the lead on the initial green. Only one lap was complete when the first caution of the night fell when Justin Mowry and Eric Mathews tangled at the bottom of turn two.

The restart saw Clevenger motor out into the lead with Oakes, third-starting Robert Sellers, Steven Shebester and Tanner Conn the top five. Clevenger kept a comfortable advantage over the field and began reaching slower cars on lap seven.

At the races midway point it was still Clevenger holding on to a three-car-length advantage over Oakes with Sellers, Shebester and Gary Owens all giving chase. The caution would wave again on lap thirteen with Tanner Conn spinning in the middle of turn four.

With the front runners on Clevengers rear bumper on the restart, that didn’t detour the leader and he would open a half-stretch lead over Oakes before again encountering lapped traffic on lap sixteen. With ten laps to go his lead would shrink to three car lengths while behind him, tenth starting and reigning series champion Andy Shouse made his way into the fourth position.

The complexion of the race changed when Clevenger and the lapped car of Cody Jarvis got together entering turn three with Clevenger taking a tumble. Oakes was also involved with Clevenger, who was uninjured in the roll over, done for the night while Oakes entered the work area where he would return.

With Clevenger and Oakes misfortune Sellers, aboard the Michael Gossman #54 sprinter, found himself in the lead on the restart.

One lap later, the final caution of the night fell when Blake Dacus and series point leader Jake Martens got together in a battle for the sixth position in turn four with significant damage ending both drivers night. Clevenger would earn the races Allen Crawford “hard luck” $100 award.

Marten would be credited with a seventeenth-place finish and his season-long point lead coming to an end.

On the final restart, it was all Sellers as he would hold off a fast closing Shouse to take earn his first series victory in his first career start. Shebester would settle for third while Owens and Joe Wood, Jr. rounding out the top five.

Cody Whitworth, who earned the fourth and final transfer position out of the “B” feature, worked himself up through the field from his twentieth starting position to earn the races Jennings Garage “hard charger” award with a sixth-place finish.

The four, eight lap heat races for the twenty-five-car field were won by Conn, Clevenger, Owens and Shebester with Mowery topping the twelve-lap “B” feature.

Monty Ferriera of Fresno, California earned the Allen Crawford $100 “longest tow” award. Next up for the SSO will be the 2017 season finale at Southern Oklahoma Speedway in Ardmore this coming Friday night.

Officials and staff with the SSO would like to thank the following for their support and contribution to the “Pat Suchy Memorial” purse, the largest in the tours two-year history: Red Dirt Raceway, Louis Boyd Racing Engines, Tim Young, Allen Crawford, Jennings Garage, Terry Coker, Carter Maxwell, Bobby Laden, Becca Ter Steege, Jerry Clifton Medlin, Martens Machine Shop, Wood Racing, Messmer Racing, Victory Motorsports, Bishop Racing Components, Pete Haskin, Sidney Long, Outlaw Wings, Gerald Brand Racing Engines, Danny Holloway, Mikes Machine Shop and David Stutkins, Jr. (Dirt Unlimited).

Thomas Kennedy Claims Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin' Challenge Qualifier at River Cities Speedway

 Story & Photo by Mike Spieker

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (September 8, 2017) – Thomas Kennedy started fifth on the 24-car grid for the Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA Sprint Car Blazin’ Challenge feature before taking the lead and lapping up to fifth place in the process. ​ It took the driver of the Kennedy Floorings No. 21K exactly half the race to make it up to leaders Nick Omdahl and Austin Pierce, but once he did, he was able to get by them and set sail.

“The car was great. It took me about five laps to get my rhythm going because there was so much going on in front of me,” said Kennedy in RydellCars.com Victory Lane. “I just tried to be patient because you can’t win the race on the first lap. Once I got into cleaner air, I was able to pick them off one by one and take the lead.”

Kennedy took the lead on lap 13 and opened up a sizeable lead while Omdahl and Pierce fought for second. With five to go, Kennedy had nearly a half lap lead over the rest of the field, but the caution flew with four laps remaining. Omdahl, Pierce, and Mark Dobmeier, who started 19th after having to transfer to the B-main because a wreck in his heat, all lined up right on Kennedy’s rear bumper for the restart.

Two laps were completed before another yellow waved. Pierce and Dobmeier were both able to move by Omdahl before the caution was displayed.

“On the restart with four to go, I don’t think I got a very good start because I got tight,” continued Kennedy. “But on the last restart I picked a different time to take off and it seemed to work a lot better for me.”

Pierce and Dobmeier engaged in a heated battle for second as the race went back to green, which allowed Kennedy to open up a 10 car length lead and take the win; his seventh of the season overall. Dobmeier stole second from Pierce at the line as Jade Hastings snuck into the fourth and final transfer spot for Saturday’s $8,200-to-win Blazin’ Challenge.

Westbrook and DeMan Win on Insta-Insulation Monster Mash Night

By Josh Gordon

OHSWEKEN, Ont. – Sept 8, 2017 – Cool September temperatures did not put a damper on Insta-Insulation Monster Mash Night at Ohsweken Speedway on Friday as 42 sprint cars packed the pit area for the final races before the 13th Annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals weekend. When the dust settled, it was Dylan Westbrook and Mack DeMan picking up feature wins.

Cory Turner set the pace early in the 20-lap Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Car feature as he jumped out to a lead over pole-sitter Tyler Hendricks.

Hendricks soon found himself skirmishing with Cory’s brother Ryan for second. The two engaged in a side-by-side battle for several laps, which prevented sixth-place starter and track champion Dylan Westbrook from moving into the top three.

On lap 8, Westbrook was finally able to sneak by Hendricks and Ryan Turner, and he immediately began to cut into Cory Turner’s sizeable lead.

Lapped traffic slowed Cory Turner, and by lap 10 Westbrook was already right on his tail. Westbrook expertly navigated the slowed cars by using a low line. He breezed by Turner coming out of turn 2 on lap 14 and cruised to rest of the way to pick up the win.

A scramble start meant that B-Main winner Brian Nanticoke started on the pole for the 20-lap Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Car feature. Nanticoke lined up next to Josh Shantz, who used his starting spot to his advantage, leading the first 17 laps.

Shantz’s lead was aided by three cautions in the first nine laps of the race. The yellows meant that he was able to hold off eight-place starter Mack DeMan, who had already moved up to second place.

On lap 17, after a long green flag run, DeMan flew by Shantz using the high side of the racetrack. Lapped traffic prevented any chance of a Shantz comeback in the final two laps as DeMan picked up the win.

Jesse McDonald, Hannah Ferrell, and Ryan Hunsinger fought tooth and nail for third place as Shantz and DeMan combatted for the lead. When checkered flew, McDonald edged Hunsinger for third. A broken nose wing cost Ferrell a shot at the podium, but she was still able to round out the top-five. MECHANICS RACES Two 12-lap mechanics races were run in each of the three weekly Ohsweken Speedway stock car divisions. Jesse McDonald and Kyle Magrin won the Middlesport Mechanical Thunder Stock races. Billy Schwartzenburg and Jeff Farnsworth were at the front of the pack when checkered flew in the two HRW Automotive features. Dustin Longboat and Archie DeBoer picked up victories in the Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bomber mechanics races. MONSTER TRUCKS Monster Truck Overkill Evolution was the overall winner for the Monster Truck competition. (Photo by Dale Calnan/Image Factor Media). Monster trucks Overkill Evolution, Anger Management, and Black Stallion put on a show in between the features, crushing cars in the infield and catching major airtime. The wheelie competition, monster truck races, and freestyle sessions ensured that no car was safe in the Ohsweken infield as all three monster trucks were on a mission to destroy everything in sight.

YouTube star Tanner Fox also dazzled in his first ever appearance in a monster truck. Fox demolished a number of cars with Black Stallion in the infield after his meet and greet with the Ohsweken Speedway fans at the beginning of the night. UP NEXT AT OHSWEKEN SPEEDWAY The 13th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals is next weekend. The action gets started on Friday night with the Burger Barn Night Before the Nationals. The night will feature a pair of 15 lap A-Features for the 360 Sprint Cars, plus the Dave McLeod Memorial Shootout, Kevin Ward, Jr. Young Stars Challenge, and the Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks, HRW Automotive Mini Stocks, and Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bombers. Saturday night is the $12,000 to win Canadian Sprint Car Nationals, plus the Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Scramble #2.

Thomas Makes it Four in 2017 With Jacksonville Win

Jacksonville, IL - Tyler Thomas took the win at Jacksonville Speedway for the Herb Barlow Memorial and claimed his fourth win of 2017. Thomas' Barlow win is the 10th of his POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League career.

Starting outside of row two, Thomas charged to the front and took the lead from Holly Shelton on lap seven. Followed by Nick Knepper, the duo led the charge towards lap traffic as Logan Seavey worked into the top three. With 12 laps in, the first caution appeared as Colten Cottle ended up spun off turn two. Leading the field back to green, Thomas set a torrid pace, while Knepper fended off Seavey. With 18 laps in the books, Seavey overcame Knepper for second, only to have the red come out one lap later after Terry Babb flipped from making contact with the outside wall in turn one.

With 19 laps completed, the field restarted and the hard charging Zach Daum moved his way into the top three on lap 20. Daum started 15th after engine troubles in the heat race caused him not to finish. With seven laps to go, Brayton Lynch tipped over exiting turn four, causing the action to slow. On the restart with Thomas still in control, havoc broke loose exiting turn four coming to the completion of lap 21 as Nick Knepper took a wild ride, involving Gage Walker and Jake Neuman.

Returning to racing, Thomas held off Seavey and eventual third place finisher, Spencer Bayston to claim victory. Zeb Wise took fourth with rookie Aidan RoosEvans snagging fifth, a career-best.

"This thing is unreal," said Tyler Thomas. "First of all, thanks to Jacksonville Speedway for giving us another badass racing surface like we always have out here. That was pretty fun. I've got to thank my dad, Duane Moore, Bobby, Adam, and Courtney Barth, my mom, without all of them I wouldn't be here right now. This Spike Esslinger is bad fast. This is awesome. Hopefully we can get another one tomorrow."

"The feature actually went a lot better than I thought it would," commented Logan Seavey. "I didn't feel all that comfortable and then fell back to fourth in the beginning and then raced back up to second and raced with Tyler Thomas there for a bit. He just got the best of us and we ended up second. Obviously capitalize with running second on a night like tonight with Daum having a flat tire, we're going to gain some points. We'll go onto Spoon River tomorrow."

"We just didn't get up far enough in our heat and that put us starting deeper in the feature than we wanted to, but was able to battle our way up to third there," stated Spencer Bayston. "The car was a little tight on the cushion and we kind of stalled out there. I had to try to find out what would make our car work the best and then there at the end a couple of cars dropped out and we more so inherited third. We didn't have a winning car, but we're fortunate enough to roll it home third.

Michael Kofoid Scores Again at Civil War Series pres. By Flowmaster Season Finale

Andy Forsberg Claims 10th Career Series Championship

(PETERSEN MEDIA- Chico, CA, )- Wednesday night in Chico, CA, Michael Kofoid backed up his Johnny Key Classic win by scoring top honors during the Civil War Series Pres. By Flomaster’s 2017 season finale event that opened up the 64th Annual Gold Cup Race of Champions. While Kofoid enjoyed victory lane, Andy Forsberg would officially be crowned the series champion for the 10th time in his career.

While he was credited with leading all 30 laps on Wednesday night, Kofoid would be tested on numerous restarts by some of the state’s top talent, though he never blinked and picked off his second career series win.

Leading the field to green alongside Mitchell Faccinto, Kofoid was extremely strong on the Silver Dollar Speedway ¼ mile. With pre feature event track prep creating a quick surface in the early goings of the race, Kofoid opened up a sizeable lead during an 18-lap green flag run.

Following the race’s first stoppage, second running Mitchell Faccinto would come to a stop on the back stretch on the ensuing restart, and Willie Croft would move into the second position and offer Kofoid his first test.

When the green flag waived, Croft would make a bid for the lead and pass Kofoid, but the Penngrove, CA youngster would have none of it as he countered only to see Shane Golobic and Bud Kaeding enter the picture and take their own shot at the race lead.

A very entertaining three laps would bring the crowd to their feet until the caution was again needed on lap 21 as Willie Croft would endure a part failure that forced him to slide through the infield.

The next restart would see Bud Kaeding make a big move from third spot to overtake the race lead, but as fate would have it the caution would waive immediately and negate his efforts.

Following one final caution on lap 24, both Golobic and Kaeding would each take shots at Kofoid initially, but the 15 –year-old standout would stay composed as he raced his way to score the exciting win.

Kaeding would hang on for second, as Golobic would finish third to round out the podium.

Sean Becker ran fourth followed by Cory Eliason, DJ Netto, Andy Forsberg, Justin Sanders, Micahel Ing, and Mitchell Faccinto would round out the Top-10.

Wednesday night would mark the conclusion of the 2017 Civil War Series pres. By Folwmaster schedule and following the race, Andy Forsberg was officially crowned the series champion for the 10th time in his career.

A total of 44 cars checked into the pit area for the finale, and it was Mitchell Faccinto kicking the night off with the fastest lap of the night in qualifying time trials.

Four heat races were ran to open the night up with Andy Forsberg, Michael Kofoid, Bud Kaeding, and DJ Netto each taking home victories.

Rowdy McClennon won the night’s C Main event, as Geoff Ensign won the ‘B’ and moved into the feature event along with Michael Ing, Kyle Hirst, Billy Wallace, Nathan Rolfe, and Chase Majdic.

ON TAP: The 2017 Civil War Series pres. By Flowmaster season has come to a close.

2017 WINNERS: Shane Golobic (March 11th Silver Dollar Speedway), Andy Forsberg (March 31st Silver Dollar Speedway), Andy Forsberg (May 27th Marysville Raceway), Kyle Hirst (May 28th Silver Dollar Speedway), Andy Forsberg (July 1st Marysville Raceway), Kyle Hirst (July 14th Ocean Speedway), Michael Kofoid (August 12th Ocean Speedway), Michael Kofoid (Sept. 6th Silver Dollar Speedway).

CUMMINS - TWICE THE EXCITEMENT AT TRI-STATE

Haubstadt, IN - Sept. 3, 2017 - Kyle Cummins of Princeton, IN,
captured Sunday night’s 30 lap feature event for the Hoosier Tire
Midwest Sprint Car Series. It was not an easy task and his effort
produced twice the excitement. Cummins lined up thirteenth in the
20 car field. He became involved in a first lap incident involving
three cars that were exiting turn three. All three restarted at the
tail. All three would fight their way back to post top ten
finishes. But Cummins did not stop in his progression past cars
until he took the lead with 2 laps to go.

The completed “Labor Day Weekend Challenge” more than lived up to its
promise. Kyle Cummins delivered on that promise of excitement with
an all out effort and collected the $3,000 check for the Rock Steady
Racing team and owner Hank Byram. The run also earned Cummins the
contingency award as the Keizer Aluminum Wheels Hard Charger of the
Race.

Briscoe Motorsports driver Thomas Meseraull started on the pole for
the feature and would lead throughout. Lap after lap Max McGhee took
up the challenge. The two sped away as Donny Brackett worked on a
possible third place finish. McGhee had to give up the chase after
losing his brakes. Brackett’s car ran out of fuel with 2 laps to go.
The top five changed.

Meseraull would finish second by a .6 of a second having proved that
he was the one you had to beat in order to win. MSCS Points leader
Brady Short moved up to third. Carson Short was fourth in his
return to MSCS competition after being injured on August 5th.
Jarett Andretti completed the race in fifth despite a mid race stop
in the work area.

Chase Stockon was sixth and was the last car scored on the lead lap.
Brian Karraker, Aric Gentry, Chet Williams, and Brandon Mattox
rounded out the top ten. Jadon Rogers collected the Wilwood Tuff
Brakes Award with an 11th place finish.

Heat Race Winners included Carson Short, James Lyerla, and Max
McGhee. Chase Stockon won the B Main. There were some unfortunate
moments. Brian Wallace flipped his sprint against the wall on the
backstretch during the B. Ben Knight flipped his car in turn two
halfway through the A Main.

The next event for the MSCS Sprint Cars will be the Haubstadt Hustler
which is scheduled for Saturday September 16th. This event is
co-sanctioned by USAC and MSCS. The best of the best will be
competing for the $10,000 to win. This year an extra $2,500 in Bonus
Money will be presented to the feature winner by Unique Breedz Inc.

The UMP Open Wheel Modifieds also competed during this racing
program. Clay Lane raced his 25C modified to victory in the 25 lap
feature which paid $1,000 to win. It was the Fort Branch, Indiana,
driver’s first win. He also won the first heat race. Dave Beck
placed second in the feature with Matt Hines, Tyler Weiss, and Dustin
Beck rounding out the top five.

Stan Beadles set the fastest time in group qualifying with a lap of
15.926 seconds. Matt Lane and Dave Beck took the second and third
heats. Roger Jackson led the B Main competitors in posting the win.
Twenty of the twenty six drivers present transferred to and started
the feature.

The UMP Open Wheel Modifieds will return in two weeks. They will be
competing on Saturday September 16th during the Haubstadt Hustler.
That night an extra $2500 cash has been posted for the modified A

Hickle, Crum and Forler Score NSA Series and ASCS Frontier Region Wins During 23rd annual Montana Round Up at Electric City

Inside Line Promotions - GREAT FALLS, Mont. (Sept. 4, 2017) - Parity was the theme of the weekend at Electric City Speedway, which hosted the 23 rd annual Montana Round Up.

J.J. Hickle, Chance Crum and Logan Forler were the feature winners of the NSA Series and ASCS Frontier Region tripleheader with Forler accumulating the most overall points to be crowned the event champion out of more than 30 competitors. Crum placed second in points and Hickle third as the top three earned bonus money.

Not only was there a new face in Victory Lane each night, most races showcased fresh winners. Nine different drivers were victorious during the dozen heat races on the weekend and a different driver picked up the win in the four B Mains at the event. Additionally, only six of the 19 total races - 12 heat races, four B Mains and three A Mains - on the weekend were won by the polesitter and seven races were claimed by drivers starting on the third row or further back.

The action began on Friday when Trever Kirkland, NSA Series points leader Casey Adams, David Miller and Forler each recorded a heat race triumph before Jeremy McCune won the B Main.

Hickle then maneuvered from sixth to record his fourth NSA Series feature victory of the season with eighth-starting Sean MacDonell placing second. ASCS Frontier Region points leader David Hoiness ended third with Forler powering from 11th to fourth and Kelly Miller rounding out the top five.

The bullring hosted Round 2 on Saturday with Kirkland, Crum, Mindy McCord and Adams registering heat race wins before Bill Boyce and Nick Tresmaker posted B Main triumphs.

Crum charged from eighth to earn his second career NSA Series feature win with Forler ending in the runner-up position. McCord placed third with Kelly Miller fourth and 11th-starting Chris Schmelzle fifth.

The event concluded on Sunday when Hoiness, David Miller, Steve Reeves and Hickle captured heat race victories and Tom Watts garnered the B Main win after starting 10th.

Forler rallied from his seventh starting position to wrap up the weekend with a trip to the Winner's Circle during the A Main. Crum finished second with Kelly Miller charging from 18th to third. Bill Boyce placed fourth and Hickle was fifth.

The NSA Series will return to action on Sept. 15-16 at BMP Speedway in Billings, Mont., for the Dan Laber Memorial. The event will be co-sanctioned with the ASCS Frontier Region.

CALEB HELMS EARNS $10,000 FOR 1st EVER ARCTIC CAT ALL STAR VICTORY DURING NAPA WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY'S PETE JACOBS MEMORIAL; MOORE CRUISES TO 2nd WIN

Orrville, Ohio

Sunday, September 3, 2017

By Tyler Altmeyer & Mike Swanger

Finally etching his name in the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions history books, Findlay's Caleb Helms is an Arctic Cat All Star main event winner, earning $10,000 during the annual Pete Jacobs Memorial at NAPA Wayne County Speedway. The victory, undoubtedly the largest payday of his young career, was a 1st ever during Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions competition.

The pilot of the Big Jerk Premium Jerky/Helms and Sons Excavating/Ferguson/Tommy Tire Sales/#17 charged from the inside of row five to claim his spot on top of the feature podium, withstanding multiple charges from former Arctic Cat All Star champion, Tim Shaffer and Cole Duncan during the closing circuits.

"Man... I'm really happy to be here, " Caleb Helms said with relief in victory lane. "I couldn't have done it without my family, my dad, my grandpa, my wife, my boys. I've been believing I could be here. It has been a long time coming it feels like, but I'm so happy we are finally here."

Joey Saldana and Chad Kemenah led the feature field to green on Sunday night at NAPA Wayne County Speedway as Saldana earned the early advantage, leading Kemenah and Danny Mumaw by the flag stand for the 1st time. Five cautions interrupted the first eight circuits of the 35 lap main event. During that time, Saldana remained in control, keeping the tight battle for second through fourth Helms, Mumaw and Kemenah in his rear view mirror. During the lap eight restart, Mumaw, who worked by Helms the circuit prior, drove under Saldana for the lead in turn one. Despite Saldana's attempt to retake the top spot in turns three and four with a slide job, Mumaw maintained in command. All momentum would soon be lost once again as the caution flag reappeared on lap nine. Mumaw led the feature field back to green with Saldana right on his tail tank. the Wooster driver attempted to run away from the field, but Saldana never allowed it, keeping just a few car lengths between himself and Mumaw. As the pair reached the back of the field, Mumaw's lead diminished completely, soon finding himself on the back bumper of lapped traffic with Saldana on his heels. Unfortunately for Mumaw, his lead would end in traffic as contact with a lapped car sent him skating into the infield off of the back stretch and also collecting Saldana. Helms, who battled his way into third just before the incident, inherited the top spot.

Green flag conditions returned with Helms now in control over Shaffer and Cole Duncan. Utilizing the very top side of the speedway, Helms was able to maintain momentum over the other front runners, but not without some added pressure from the "Steel City Outlaw" Tim Shaffer. When Helms and Shaffer entered traffic on lap 25, the gap between the two disappeared completely, battling nearly side by side for 4 circuits from laps 26 to 29. Luckily for Helms, caution flags flew once again, ultimately setting up a clear track and clean air the remaining distance.

"That late caution definitely helped us," Caleb Helms explained. "I felt like we were finally starting to hit stride. I was able to get my wing back a little bit further and figure out where I needed to enter the corners. Andy Potter did a great job with this car. We keep learning night in and night out."

In the Lowes Super Stock feature, Charlie Duncan would set the pace for the opening 6 laps from his pole position, but mechanical issues with the #16 on lap seven ended Duncan's run. Up until that point, it was a multi car battle for second as Mansfield's Kyle Moore had moved into that position on lap two with track champion Bob Daugherty, Paul Holmes, Trae Schonauer, John Wilson, Todd Werntz and Jordan James all dueling for top five positioning. During the caution for Duncan, Schoenauer developed a flat tire and went to the pits to change it. Driving the Kryptonite Race Cars/Keller Flooring/ Tim Arnold Motorsports #11, Moore would start to expand his lead as the competition started to weed it self out as Daugherty would pull off on lap 12 and two circuits later, James would pull into the infield. Moore had stretched his lead out to almost a straight away ahead of Wilson, who had taken second from Daugherty on the lap seven restart. Holmes was in third as Werntz and Jim Nicely battled back and forth for the 4th position. As the checkered flag waved, Moore went to the Summit Racing victory lane for the second time this season at 'Orrville's Historic Oval' with Wilson in second followed by Holmes, Werntz and Nicely. Heat winners were Wilson, Moore and Daugherty.

The next action at NAPA Wayne County Speedway will be on Friday and Saturday, September 22nd & 23rd for the 5th annual Ohio Dirt Blow out.

Henry gets thrilling FAST win at Waynesfield

By Brian Liskai

WAYNESFIELD, OH. – Cap Henry took the lead at the white flag at Waynesfield Raceway Park Sunday in a thrilling All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads FAST 410 Championship Series presented by Ohio Logistics feature and drove to his second victory of 2017. Henry, who started 10th in the 30 lap feature, executed a perfect “slider” on Cale Thomas in turns three and four for the victory.

“This team doesn’t have a lot of money. But they work hard and are dedicated and I can’t thank them enough for the opportunity,” said Henry of his Lane Racing, Metropolitan Landscaping, Kistler Engines backed #4.

Not to be out done, the JLH General Contractor FAST 305 Championship Series presented by Engine Pro competitors also put on a fantastic show for the huge crowd. Fremont, Ohio’s John Ivy took the lead from Nate Dussel in heavy lapped traffic at the half way point of the 25 lap feature and then held off repeated challenges from Dussel to score his sixth overall win of 2017.

“My brother Scott, Guy, Ron…they have this thing pretty darn good. It was awesome on the bottom tonight. This is for my daughter Jamy who celebrates her birthday tomorrow,” said Ivy beside his CN Construction Supplies; Ginnever Trucking; Sonny’s Machine & Welding; Kistler Racing Products; North Coast Asphalt, Rohr Lawn Care; Mr. Appliance; MRE; Sipes Oceola Garage; Dave Story Equipment; L&R Farms; S&S Racing: Kercher Engines; Linder’s Speed Equipment; Tiffany’s Furniture; Seagate Sandblasting; Keller Hardware; Johnson Hunting & Fishing backed machine.

In the Great Lakes Super Sprints/NRA Sprint Invaders 360 sprint feature Randy Hannagan, Dustin Daggett and Jared Horstman waged a terrific battle the last 10 laps of the 30 lap feature, slicing and dicing through lapped traffic. With three laps to go a lapped car got sideways in front of the lead trio with Hannagan making big contact and Horstman tumbling on the front stretch. Hannagan was able to continue on and held off Daggett for the win.

In the 410 sprint feature Kody Kinser and Brian Lay brought the field to green but a spin by Adam Cruea after a lap was scored brought out the caution. On the restart Cruea made contact with another car and flipped; he was uninjured. After two laps were scored Chris Andrews spun, keeping the field close with Kody Kinser leading Lay, Thomas, Dane Lorenc and Stuart Brubaker. Lay powered into the lead on lap five as the caution flew for Dustin Ingle.

Lay blasted away at the high side of the bull ring to continue leading when the green reappeared with Thomas, Lorenc, Kinser and Henry staying within striking distance. Following a caution on lap 11 for a stalled Shawn Valenti, Thomas threw a tremendous slider on Lay on the restart, grabbing the lead. Meanwhile Henry came alive, driving into third on lap 14 just as the caution flew for a Kinser spin. On the ensuing restart Henry drive around Lay into second as Thomas pulled away.

With 12 laps to go Thomas held a commanding lead over Henry, Lay, DJ Foos, Lorenc and Broc Martin. However, as Thomas began to close on lapped cars, Henry began closing the gap with nine laps to go. Henry flashed the nose of his car under Thomas at the five laps to go single with Foos, Lay, Martin and Lorenc giving chase. Foos challenged Henry for second on lap 27 and with two laps to go Thomas, Henry and Foos ran nose to tail.

As the leaders raced to the white flag, Henry made his winning move, blasting into turn three on the bottom and sliding in front of Thomas. Henry drove away the final lap with Thomas, Foos, Lay and Martin rounding out the top five.

The win boosts Foos’ FAST championship title hopes as the series heads to its championship night, Friday, Sept. 15.

The 25 lap FAST 305 feature saw pole-sitter Ricky Peterson grab the early lead over Nate Dussel, Ivy, Dustin Rall and Kyle Capodice. Luke Daugherty spun with three laps scored and on the restart Peterson had his hands full with Dussel who used the extreme high line to hound the leader. Peterson and Dussel ran side by side over the next hand full of laps before Dussel grabbed the lead on lap 9. Ivy closed on the lead duo and took second from Peterson at the half way point.

Lapped traffic came into play on lap 13 and Ivy used it to his advantage to grab the lead from Dussel. Ivy and Dussel put on quite the show until third running Bobby Clark tangled with a lapped car and flipped with five markers left. With a clear track Ivy stayed glued to the bottom and drove to the win over Dussel, Paul Weaver, Peterson and Stroup.

Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt Presented by ARP

ERIE, MI (September 3, 2017) Ryan Ruhl (Coldwater, MI) capped off a great weekend by putting on a dominating performance to win his third consecutive annual Mike Olrich Memorial last night at Crystal Motor Speedway.  The race was the final points race for Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt Presented by ARP 2017 season.  The 25 lap SOD feature was run caution-free and in record time. Ruhl also won the SOD King Engine Bearing King of Michigan race at Hartford Speedway Friday night.

The speedway was the scene of an epic battle; there was also an impressive race too!  Track owner/promoter Ron Flinn went toe-to-toe for control of the track surface with Mother Nature.  Flinn, who takes pride in his track prep, was challenged after SOD heats but before the SOD feature.  Determined to win out, Flinn went to work bringing back the lost race surface.  Crystals track prep vehicles/push trucks went to work on track  All 22 SOD cars then took over and wheel packed the track.  Everyone was rewarded with a lightning-fast, fan-pleasing track. 

Jay Steinebach and Brett Mann led the field to the green with Mann taking the initial lead.  It was immediately obvious that the packed house was going to be treated to an all-out speed fest.  Lapped traffic quickly made the leaders work hard, and Steinebach took advantage of a Mann check up to grab the lead.  4th starting Ruhl took the lead on lap seven though, and drove off into another time zone, expertly slicing through traffic.  Steinebach faced a little pressure first from Mann, then from Dain Naida, but eventually opened up a comfortable gap.  Mann got back by Naida on the last lap to claim 3rd

Steve Irwins 6th place finish was enough to claim the Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt Presented by ARP 2017 Championship.  Thomas Schinderle finished 2nd in points and is the 2017 Perfit Sprints On Dirt Series Rookie of the Year.  2015 SOD champion Gregg Dalman finished 3rd in points.  Chris Jones came back from a heat race flip to start the feature and take 4th in points over Ryan Ruhl.  Andrew Scheid claimed the 2017 Perfit Sprints On Dirt Sprint Car Rookie of the Year title and finished 8th in season points.

Schneiderman, LaVeine, Oliver Jr., Becerra, Taylor, Masengarb, and Lambert Crowned Champions at 34 Raceway

by Brian Neal West Burlington, IA (Saturday, September 2, 2017) - It's hard to believe it's that time of the year, as 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa held it's final points night of the 2017 season on Saturday night. At the end of the nights action seven track champions would be crowned on Pepsi Season Championship Night, along with five drivers winning for the multiple times at the track. While one picked up their first win of the season, and another scoring his first career win.

The 15 lap Casebine Credit Union IMCA SportMod feature was the first to take to the track, with Austen Becerra and Sean Wyett making up the front row. Becerra would take advantage of his starting spot to jump out front on lap 1 over Wyett and Kyle Hill. The action up front was slowed on lap 2, when Jake Morris spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Becerra moved back out front, with Hill over taking Wyett for second. Just after another lap, lap 3, was scored complete the second caution of the race appeared, as Adam Birck spun in turn 4 from contact from Dean Kratzer to bring out the yellow. Once again Becerra jumped back out front, with Hill and Wyett close behind. While Becerra worked to hold off Hill for the lead, Brandon Lennox, who started 6th, worked past Wyett for third on lap 5 and then went to work on the battle for the lead. A third caution slowed the action on lap 8, when fluids were dropped from Jeff Frana's car in turn 1 to bring out the yellow. Becerra grabbed the lead on the restart, with Lennox over taking Hill for the runner up spot. Lennox would try to work under Becerra over the next three laps, when the fourth and final caution slowed the action on lap 12. Morris slowed to a stop down the front stretch to bring out the yellow. Once again Becerra grabbed the lead on the restart, with Lennox and Hill close behind. Despite a few challenges from Lennox over the final laps, Becerra was able to hold claim his third win in a row and eighth of the season at 34 Raceway. The win also helped Becerra score his first SportMod track championship. Finishing a close second was Lennox, Hill was 3rd, Randy LaMar was 4th, with Wyett coming home in 5th.

Up next was the 12 lap Sunoco Fuels Mod Lite feature, with Jason Masengarb and Devon Rouse leading the field to green. Masengrab used his front row starting spot to grab the lead on lap 1 over Mike Morrill and Rouse. Morrill would follow in Masengarb's tire tracks over the next several laps, as the duo pulled away from the rest of the field. With about three laps to go Morrill then started to look under Masengarb for the lead. But Masengarb was able to hold him off to score his seventh win of the season at the track. The win also helped Masengarb secure the track championship. Morrill was 2nd, Rouse was 3rd, Erin Turner started 7th and finished 4th, with R.J. Gonzales coming from 11th to finish in 5th.

Adam Taylor and Dillon Morley led the field to green in the 12 lap Deery Brothers IMRA Midget feature. But it was Tyson Hart, who started 4th, who grabbed the lead on lap 1 over Morley and Taylor. The action was slowed for the first time on lap 3, when Jacob Sollenberger spun off the track in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Hart moved back out front, with Morley and Jeff Mallonee close behind. Hart then held the top spot until lap 9 when he drifted high in turn 4, which allowed Morley to drive under him for the lead. Then just after the lap was scored complete the second and final caution of the race came out, as Blake Haynes spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. Morley jumped back out front on the restart, with Hart and Taylor close behind. Hart tried to work the top of the track to get past Morley for the lead over the final laps. But Morley was able to hold him off to claim his third win of the season at 34 Raceway. Hart settled for 2nd, Taylor was 3rd and clinched the track championship, Mallonee was 4th, with Kurt Mueller rounding out the top 5.

The 20 lap Pepsi IMCA Stock Car feature was up next, with John Oliver Jr. and Tom Bowling Jr. leading the field to green. Bowling Jr. used his front row starting spot to grab the lead on lap 1 over Oliver Jr. and Chad Krogmeier. Oliver Jr. would follow in Bowling Jr.'s tire tracks over the next 5 laps, when the first and only caution of the race slowed the action on lap 6. Mark Bowman would spin in turn 3 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Bowling Jr. moved back out front, with Oliver Jr., and Dane Fenton, who started 7th, close behind. Oliver Jr. tried to work under Bowling Jr. over the final laps, but Bowling Jr. held him off to claim his fifth win of the season at the track. Oliver Jr. would finish 2nd and secured the track championship, which was also his second of the year after winning the title in Donnellson, Iowa. Fenton was 3rd, Abe Huls came from 9th to finish in 4th, with Ray Raker coming home in 5th.

Up next was the 20 lap WT Gabeline & Sons Trucking 305 Sprint feature, with Jarrod Schneiderman and Ben Wagoner making up the front row. But just as the green flag was waved the caution light came on, as Rob Kubli spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Wyatt Wilkerson spun down the front stretch to bring the yellow light back on. The third attempt of a start saw Wagoner jump out front to lead lap 1 over Schneiderman and Nick Guernsey. Schneiderman would follow Wagoner over the next 5 laps, when they started to enter lap traffic, that's when Schneiderman looked under him for the lead. But the action was slowed for the first time on lap 9, when Guernsey, who was running 4th, spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Wagoner moved back out front, with Schneiderman and Ryan Jamison, who started 8th, following. Again Schneiderman would follow Wagoner, until they started to enter lapped traffic on lap 17. Schneiderman tried to work under Wagoner for the lead, when the second and final caution of the race appeared on lap 18. This time Jamison, who was running 3rd, lost a motor in turn 1 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Wagoner jumped back out front and then held off Schneiderman to claim his first win of the season at 34 Raceway. Schneiderman's second place finish was enough to claim his second track championship in a row at the track. Kubli, who started 14th, recovered from his spin on the start to climb back up to finish 3rd, Daniel Bergquist was 4th, with Colton Fisher finishing in 5th.

Dennis LaVeine and Dugan Thye led the field to green in the 20 lap Victory Lane Suspensions IMCA Modified feature, with LaVeine grabbing the lead on lap 1 over Bill Roberts Jr. and Thye. Roberts Jr. would try to work under LaVeine over the next 5 laps, when the first caution of the race slowed the action up front. James Raleigh would spin in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Dean McGee, who was running 6th, spun in turn 2 to bring the yellow light back on. The following restart saw LaVeine move back out front, with Roberts Jr. and Dustin Smith close behind. Just after another lap was scored complete, the third caution of the race came out on lap 7. This time Creston Williams spun in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. LaVeine once again grabbed the lead on the restart, with Roberts Jr. in second, and Brandon Rothzen, who started 7th, Steve Stewart, who started 15th, and Dustin Smith going three wide for third. Two laps later, lap 9, Stewart, who was running 4th, went off the top of turn 2 with a broken left front to bring out the caution. Once again LaVeine jumped out front on the restart, with Roberts Jr. and Rich Smith, who started 9th, close behind. Roberts Jr. would look under LaVeine for the top spot over the next seven laps, when Darrow Lillie spun in turn 4 on lap 17 to bring out the yellow and slow the battle out front. LaVeine jumped back out front on the restart, with Roberts Jr. and McGee, who recovered from his spin on lap 5, following. Another lap scored complete produced the sixth and final caution of the race, as Raleigh spun in turn 1 for his second solo caution to end his night. LaVeine grabbed the lead on the restart and then held off Roberts Jr. to pick up his third win of the season at the track. LaVeine had already secured the track championship a week ago to go with his title in Donnellson, Iowa, so the win just helped to top of the season at the track. Roberts Jr. was 2nd, McGee was 3rd, Jason Bahrs passed 13 cars from his 17th place starting spot to come home in 4th, with Rich Smith rounding out the top 5.

The final feature to take to the track was the 12 lap Sonny's Market 4-Cylinders, with Brandon Lambert and Larry Miller making up the front row. Miller took advantage of his starting spot to grab the lead on lap 1 over Lambert and Kimberly Abbott. The lead for Miller lasted until lap 4 when Lambert used the top of the track to grab the top spot away from him. Two laps later, lap 6, disaster would strike Lambert, as he slowed in turn 4 with a broken rear end to end his run up front. On the restart Miller moved back out front, with Abbott and Eric Eye, who started 5th, close behind. The three car battle for the lead was slowed for the second and final time on lap 8, when Cody Bowman lost a right rear tire in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. Abbott would use the bottom of the track to grab the top spot on the restart, with Eye and Miller close behind. Eye tried to look under Abbott over the next two laps, but Abbott was able to hold him off at the line on each lap. But coming off turn 4 to get the checkered flag Abbott drifted high, which allowed Eye to go by for his first career 4-Cylinder win. Abbott settled for 2nd, Miller was 3rd, Ashton Blain started 7th and finished 4th, with David Prim coming home in 5th. Lambert's 12th place finish was enough for him to win the track championship.

Jason Barney Dominates Fulton Speedway Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint Win to Put Exclamation Point on Championship Season

By MIKE MALLETT

FULTON, NY – Jason Barney officially wrapped up his first Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint championship by virtue of his runner-up finish on Friday night at Brewerton Speedway. Although he got the title, the Brewerton, N.Y., driver wasn’t happy that he let a win slip away on the final lap of the A-Main. On Saturday night Barney wasn’t going to let that happen again.

Barney redrew the pole position for the main-event at Fulton Speedway. He wasn’t going to be denied as he was never seriously challenged throughout the 25-lap feature to claim his fourth win of the 2017 season and his second of the year at the facility. The win earned him $2,100 and points toward the NAPA Auto Parts US Tour standings as well as the SUNY Canton Racing Series.

“It’s nice to have confidence,” said Barney. “We’ve been a little down on ourselves since we won here back in July. We went into a little slump. We’ve been on a roll with some seconds and thirds in races we thought we had chances at winning. Even though you finish second you feel down on yourself for not closing them out at the end. We had a couple chances these last couple weeks. This is great. I’m proud of my guys, proud of my race team and my race cars.”

The championship is Barney’s first after coming up second numerous times over the past several seasons to seven-time and defending champion Steve Poirier. He had nothing but praise for Poirier as he feels like that’s what helped him get to the point where was able to have a championship caliber season.

“I’m very lucky and very blessed to have a great race team that supports me, great sponsors and a great family,” commented Barney. “I’ve spent a lot of years chasing the 28 (Poirier) and the 28 wasn’t with us all year. He made us better, he made us a championship team. We emulate what he does. We work as hard as he does and we tried to build a program like he has. I want him to come back. I want to go head to head with him. He’s the best, we were just best this year.”

Barney was flanked by Shawn Donath for the start of the main. Barney jumped out at the green tucking right down on the bottom of the speedway. He got as close as he could to the yuke tires on the inside of the track as he could.

“It was nice to start up front,” mentioned Barney. “I was more nervous starting on the pole than I was starting 21st last night. I knew my guys gave me great race car. This is my race track, hug the tires and hope nobody is better.”

Barney pace was a good one as he pulled away quickly from the field. By lap seven he already found himself dealing with cars running at the tail end of the field while being pursued by Bryan Howland. He struggled a bit to get through as several of the slower cars were in his preferred line on the bottom.

Three circuits later on lap 10, Barney got a break from traffic as Robbie Stillwaggon rolled to a stop on the top of the fourth turn to bring out a yellow. When the pace picked back up Barney was able to again drive off from the field.

As Barney controlled the pace, Howland fought with Matt Tanner to keep the second position. Tanner found a great line through the middle of the track while Howland mirrored Barney by running the bottom of the racing surface.

Mike Kiser had a top five run come to an end when he caught one of the tires on the bottom of the track causing him to go around in the fourth turn on lap 19. This caution cleared the way for Barney as he had just moved into traffic a second time before the yellow.

Barney made no mistakes after the green came again. He stayed true to his line on the bottom gapping Howland and Tanner as they tussled for second. Eventually Tanner was able to snag the position. Before he could mount a charge the race was over with Barney taking the win.

Tanner was happy to have something go his way on Saturday. Tanner, of Stephentown, N.Y., made a couple mistakes on Friday and ended up fifth. His second place finish was a nice pick me up for him and his team after he started in position 13.

“The guys gave me a really good car tonight,” said Tanner. “Driver error caused us to give up a top five last night, but I think we made up for it tonight driving from 13th to second. I just wish I had a restart at the end to line up next to Jason (Barney). I really liked to be on the outside for the restarts. I think all of our restarts were on the bottom. It took me too long to get it sorted out after a caution to get everyone lined up back on the bottom.”

Danny Varin hovered between fourth in fifth throughout the main before he got rolling after the final caution. Varin got by Howland and held off Larry Wight on the last two laps to finish third from the eighth spot.

“That one was tough,” mentioned Varin. “We really fought our way right to the end. We just kind of missed it. We didn’t make the right adjustments tonight. This place always throws me a little bit of a curve ball. I’m always a little too tight or a little too loose, I’ve never felt great here. Tonight we were a little too lose. We’ll have to write it down in the notebook for the next time we are here.”

Howland fell back to finish in the fourth position while Wight drove his way from the 12th starting spot to fifth. A total of 36 sprints filled the pits.

Droud Claims First Series Victory of Season in NCRA Sprint Action at 81 Speedway!

Defending series champion Don Droud, Jr. took the lead with seven laps remaining then went the rest of the distance unchallenged to claim his first feature victory of the season as the National Championship Racing Association of Park City, Kansas presented by Precise Racing Products sprint car division made a Labor Day Saturday night stop at 81 Speedway in Park City.

J.D. Johnson and Danny Jennings started on the front row for the twenty-lap-feature with Johnson taking the lead as the green flag fell. Jennings, Jeff Stasa, Droud and Jeremy Campbell were the top five after the first lap with Johnson opening up a ten-car-length lead after lap three.

Lap five saw his lead stretch to a half-stretch over Jennings before Johnson reached the slower cars one lap later allowing Jennings to cut the deficit to five car lengths. But Jennings would slide high off the track exiting turn two one lap later allowing Droud, Stasa and Campbell to get by, dropping Jennings back to fifth.

Droud began to reel in the leader and was within six car lengths by lap eleven. Two laps later Droud got a run coming out of turn two down the backstretch and passed Johnson for the lead on lap seventeen.

Campbell and Stasa would pass Johnson for second and third respectively while Droud began to pull away from the field.

In the end, there was no catching Droud as he would cruise the rest of the way to claim the half-straightaway victory over seventh starting Campbell. Stasa’s best series run of the year garnered him a third-place finish while Johnson and Jennings rounded out the top five.

The two, eight lap heat races for the sixteen-car field were won by Stasa and Jeninngs.

The NCRA Sprint Car division will be back in action one week from tonight, September 9, as they make their second and final appearance of the season at Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, Nebraska in a co-sanctioned event with the Nebraska 360 Sprint Car Series in an event that will pay $2500 to win and $500 to start the night’s feature finale.

Saldana uses restart to take Dirt Classic Ohio win at Attica; Shaffer gets make-up win

Sunday, Sept. 3, 2017

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Joey Saldana used a restart with just four laps to go to pass Cole Duncan and drive to a $10,000 pay day at Attica Raceway Park Saturday, Sept. 2 for the 2nd Annual Dirt Classic Ohio with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions to close the track’s 30th season.

It was the second All Star win of the year for the “Brownsburg Bullet” and the 73rd of his career with the series, putting him third in all-time feature victories with “America’s Series.” Of those 73 All Star wins, five have now come at Attica Raceway Park where Saldana has a total of seven career victories.

Saldana, aboard the Bernie Stuebgen owned Indy Race Parts #71, tested Duncan on a restart with 10 laps to go, trying a slider that Duncan was able to hold off. When fourth running Brady Bacon spun with four laps to go, Saldana made his move, diving to Duncan’s inside once again and making it stick.

“The biggest thing with Cole is he has a really good car and he’s got a great dad teaching him how to race. That’s where I was a few years ago with my dad just trying to make it in racing. Getting these big shows is what it’s all about but Cole drove a hell of a race. He did a great job. It wasn’t that he did anything wrong, I just figured out how to back my corner on the restart just a little bit and then just got a run on him. We had a really good race early on. We banged wheels a little bit but good clean racing and got lucky we got a restart with four to go and it gave us a shot at it,” Saldana said.

“I can’t thank Betsy and Bernie with Indy Race Parts enough for giving me the opportunity to race these cars. They’re so expensive to do and be competitive. You can race but to be competitive it’s a different story. They definitely give me a car that’s competitive to win every night. It was a great night for us,” added Saldana

For Lockborne, Ohio’s Cole Duncan, who led the first 36 laps, it was yet another victory at Attica that slipped through his fingers.

“This win at Attica just keeps eluding us. Congrats to Joey and their team. They’ve been a rocket since Joey got there. The 71 car has always been fast but Joey takes it to another level and that’s hard to beat. Our night started out hectic. We had a mag-generator kind of take a dump on us so we didn’t get to hot lap…the first laps we saw were the two for qualifying but we put ourselves in a good position there. We weren’t great in the first heat but we were good in the second heat and passed a bunch of cars and got high point guy. That says something about our team and our car…we were able to overcome and sit on the pole for something that pays points is pretty cool. We led a lot of laps but not the most important ones,” said a dejected Duncan.

“I can’t thank all my guys enough…Helms Construction, Motorcity Auto Transport, EcoMend, Wolfden Products, Scott Gressman at Gressman Powersports…he’s been great, FK Rod Ends and Ohio Heating…Sheldon and his family is here so it’s good to put a good show on for them. But, this sucks. The restarts were killing me. I was getting away with doing pretty close the same thing every time. He cleared me once and I knew where I screwed up on that so I kept doing what I was doing…you know leading the whole race and not having mirrors to see what’s behind you…I would feel worse if I’d done something different and got beat than to keep doing what I was doing and lead laps and get beat. I guess getting beat by Joey isn’t a horrible day but it would have been nice to take home that one,” Duncan added.

Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry brought the small Lane Racing Team car to a third place finish.

“These guys have been awesome all year. They were the first ones to give me another opportunity this year and I can’t thank them enough. We were really good but I’ll take it. It was a fun race and I can’t thank the Lanes enough and FK Rod Ends, J&J Auto Racing, Kistler Engines, Wings Unlimited…everyone who helps out,” he said.

The All Stars also made up their rained out A-main from the Ohio Sprint Speedweek from June 16 as the first event of Kistler Engines Night. That too came down to a late race restart after Travis Philo led the first 30 laps. Friday night’s Attica winner Tim Shaffer and Chad Kemenah battled with Philo following a caution with six laps to go with Shaffer gaining the lead on lap 31 and driving to his 60th All Star victory, six of which have now come at Attica. It was Shaffer’s third win of the year at Attica and 16th of his career at the track. It was also Shaffer’s third speedweek victory earning him an additional $3,000 bonus from Cometic Gasket making it a total payday of $8,000.

“Hats off to Jeff Rudzik and Joe Demyan. What a great car and Cody (Jacobs) had this thing awesome again tonight. It was operating any where I wanted to go. It had to be a heck of a race to watch. I got under him (Philo) a couple of times and I got him to move and I figured I could zing him on the top. I went up and got in the dirty air and pushed real bad and Kemenah stuck in there and almost got both of us. It made for a great race and a lot of fun. I think we hurt the engine…I lost oil pressure there with six laps to go. We have another one…it’s wore out. This engine has 16 or 17 nights on it…it’s been pretty good to us,” Shaffer said.

The final race of the night – the 305 sprint A-main – also came down to a late race restart with Sandusky, Ohio’s Kyle Capodice passing rookie Chase Dunham with three laps to go to get his first win of the year and the third of his career at Attica.

“It took all year but we finally got a win. It was good close, hard racing. I knew I had to move up because Chase was pretty stout up top so I moved off the bottom up a groove and it made all the difference in the world. I want to thank my dad most of all…without him none of this would be possible. He’s in the shop day in and day out. Tyler Crump was helping us out tonight and my girlfriend Kiley. I want to thank Joe and Fran Darmofal, Franklin Sanitation, Fred Wolfe Auctioneer, Burns Electric, Greber Racing Components,” said Capodice.

In the 35-lap All Star make-up feature Philo and Cale Conley brought the field to green with Philo gaining the advantage. Philo set a blistering pace, driving away from the field and into lapped traffic by the sixth circuit with Conley, Cale Thomas, Shaffer, Kemenah, Lee Jacobs and Rob Chaney giving chase. With 10 laps scored the leaders encountered heavy lapped traffic which Shaffer used to take second

Continuing to race through lapped machines, Philo’s lead began to disappear and with 15 laps to go Shaffer was right on his rear bumper with Conley, Kemenah and Thomas battling hard for third. Philo and Shaffer raced side by side and nose to tail over the next nine laps until the only caution flew for a Craig Mintz spin with six to go. On the restart Kemenah dove under both Shaffer and Philo, sliding into second. On the next circuit Shaffer returned the favor, moving from third to first.

Shaffer then pulled away slightly as Kemenah and Philo battled for second. Philo would lose a tire on the final lap as Shaffer drove to the checkers over Kemenah, Conley, Chaney and Duncan.

For the 40 lap Dirt Classic Ohio event, Duncan and Saldana blasted into the lead with Henry, Carson Macedo, Sammy Swindell, Philo and DJ Foos giving chase. Duncan drove away as Saldana and Henry battled for second. Duncan encountered lapped traffic by lap seven but held a huge lead as Saldana, Henry and Macedo kept the crowd entertained in their fight for second. Macedo would flip on lap 14 which gave Duncan a clear track and out of heavy lapped traffic.

On the restart Saldana tried a slider in turns one and two but Duncan was able to hold him off. Once again Duncan began pulling away but a Justin Peck tip over at the half way mark kept the field close. Duncan got a much better restart this time and pulled way again from Saldana, Henry, Brady Bacon, Philo, Swindell and 20th starter Chris Andrews. With 15 laps to go Duncan held a commanding lead over Saldana, Henry, Bacon, Philo, Andrews and 22nd starter Shaffer.

Nothing changed in the top seven running order until there were four laps to go as Bacon spun while battling Henry for third. This time on the restart Saldana tried the slider again on Duncan and this time it stuck as he edged into the lead. Saldana pulled away for the victory over Duncan, Henry, Philo and Andrews.

Capodice and Dunham brought the field to green for the 25 lap 305 sprint A-main. A pair of cautions kept the event from getting underway but the third attempt saw Dunham jump into the lead over Capodice, Dustin Stroup, Steve Rando, Landon LaLonde and Kelsey Ivy. Dunham blasted away at the top cushion while Capodice inched closer on the bottom lap after lap. Following a caution on lap nine, Capodice attempt a run on the bottom for the lead but Dunham was just too strong on the cushion.

With 10 laps to go Capodice altered his line, moving up the track a groove and he started to close on Dunham. Capodice drove into the lead exiting turn two on lap 17 when Dunham bottled on the cushion. But, the caution came out putting Dunham back into the lead. On the green Dunham and Capodice side by side again for the top spot with Rando, John Ivy and Ricky Peterson giving chase.

The final caution on lap 20 gave Capodice his shot at Dunham and he pounced, driving to the leader’s inside several times before taking the lead with three to go. Capodice held off a hard charging Rando for the win with Dunham, John Ivy and Peterson rounding out the top five.

Madsen, Hafertepe Jr. and Schriever Victorious During Sprint Car Season Finale at Jackson Motorplex; Dobmeier Claims Track Title

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (Sept. 2, 2017) - The final sprint car show of the season at Jackson Motorplex didn't disappoint on Saturday evening when Kerry Madsen and Sam Hafertepe Jr. each captured a $10,000-to-win main event and Alex Schriever charged from 16th to claim an A Main.

Madsen set quick time during qualifying, maneuvered from sixth to win a heat race and charged from eighth to garner the 410 Outlaw Sprints Fueled by Casey's General Store main event - his track-best third triumph of the season.

However, it was polesitter Brooke Tatnell who dominated early as he led the first dozen laps of the 20-lap main event before Wayne Johnson made a bid for the lead. The duo swapped the lead multiple times and while they traded slide jobs Madsen, who was up to fourth place by the midpoint of the race, closed the deficit.

As the drivers crossed the finish line on Lap 15 Johnson was in the outside groove with Tatnell heading to the bottom lane entering turn one. Madsen had momentum and beat Tatnell to the bottom going into the corner, making it three wide for the lead with only five laps remaining. Madsen slid across the track in turns one and two, narrowly in front of Johnson exiting turn two for what turned out to be the race-winning move.

Madsen pulled away for the triumph with Johnson earning the runner-up result and Tatnell placing third. Mark Dobmeier rallied from 11 th to fourth place to secure the 410 Outlaw Sprints Fueled by Casey's General Store track championship and Austin McCarl rounded out the top five.

McCarl and Kaeding were heat race winners along with Madsen.

The Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour main event was just as exciting as Hafertepe Jr., who entered the night as the series points leader, quickly maneuvered into the runner-up position from his fourth starting spot while Kaeding, who started on the pole, led most of the first half of the 25-lap A Main.

Hafertepe Jr. and Kaeding swapped the lead multiple times before Hafertepe Jr. took the lead for good when Kaeding bobbled on the cushion in turn four on Lap 19. A late-race caution allowed Kaeding to close on the rear bumper of Hafertepe Jr., who was able to capitalize on a strong restart to record his series-best 13th triumph this season.

Thomas Kennedy rounded out the podium with Wayne Johnson finishing fourth and Seth Bergman fifth.

Bergman, Kaeding, Kennedy and Kaley Gharst each scored a heat race win and Scott Winters picked up the B Main victory.

Schriever was on a mission during the HRA non-wing sprints presented by HitchDoc A Main, powering from his third-to-last starting position to his second feature triumph of the season at Jackson Motorplex. Schriever also had to outduel the most recent winner, 14th starting Bret Mellenberndt, for the impressive win as Rick Shuman placed third, Shane Fick was fourth and Anna Hippe ended fifth.

Brandon Halverson, Jeremy Kerzman and Schriever were the heat race winners.

Jackson Motorplex will be dormant for the next two weekends before wrapping up the season on Sept. 22-23 for the IMCA Jackson Nationals presented by Arnold Motor Supply featuring Minnesota West - Jackson Campus IMCA a mods, Bohl's Small Engine IMCA sport mods, Fairmont Awards IMCA hobby stocks, IMCA stock cars and IMCA sport compacts.

Mike Lichty Scores Dominant Win in 24th ISMA Supernationals at Oswego Speedway

OSWEGO, NY (September 2, 2017) - Canadian Mike Lichty brought home the second ISMA Supernationals win of his Supermodified career Saturday night at Oswego Speedway, driving the Reed’s Salvage, Patco Transportation No. 84 to victory lane in the 24th running of the event on Budweiser Classic Weekend at the ‘Steel Palace.’

Lichty started on the outside pole, passed polesitter Chris Perley on the outside on lap 1 and never looked back, earning the fifth Oswego checkered flag of his career and the first since May of 2016.

“It’s been awhile since we’ve been in victory lane here at Oswego,” Lichty said. “I have to thank Craig Reed, my father, Patco Transportation and everyone involved for a great effort. We have no plans to run Star or Thompson later this year so it’s nice go out with a win for this team.”

Perley, who is the all-time winningest ISMA driver not only in series history but also on Classic Weekend, ended up finishing in the runner up spot. The ‘Rowley Rocket’ is pulling double duty this Classic Weekend, also driving the Eddie Shea owned No. 44 Hawk Chassis Supermodified in the Budweiser International Classic 200.

“Our car was good tonight, I have to thank Eddie (Shea) and the whole team,” Perley said. “After Mike (Lichty) got me I just was never quite close to him enough to have anything to go for the win, but I’m happy for our team and I’m happy for Lichty. We will give it a shot in the 200 tomorrow.”

Finishing out the podium was Trent Stephens, the 2016 King of Wings champion, who has had a rather impressive season with the ISMA tour that included a victory at Lancaster Speedway.

“We had an awesome car today. right off the trailer it was great,” Stephens said. “Disappointed we only have a third to show for it, but the top five cars tonight were pretty quick. We tightened it up too much for the feature, so there was some more speed to be had. Just glad we had a good result after the crew busted their butts after Delaware.”

The 24th ISMA Supernationals was lead to green by Perley and Lichty with Lichty proving stronger very early on, as he worked past Perley to take the top spot with fourth starting McKennedy falling into third on lap 1.

Lichty lead the first ten circuits ahead of Perley, McKennedy, Dan Bowes, Stephens, Mark Sammut and Mike McVetta with Bowes, the evening’s fast qualifier, quickly on the move in the Northeast Metal Technologies No. 25.

By lap 13, Bowes had pulled in behind the P&L Motorsports No. 21 of McKennedy in traffic, shooting under the Modified regular in turn one to take the third spot.

As Lichty worked into his initial round of traffic on lap 18, it appeared as if Perley would have the chance to capitalize until the first yellow flag of the race was put out on lap 20 for Dave McKnight into the turn two wall.

On the ensuing restart, Lichty was able to open up his lead. Although Bowes appeared to be the only car that had anything for the top two all race long, the driver from Byfield, MA made hard contact with the outside wall as the green flag came back out. Bowes took his car straight to the pits.

At halfway, Lichty lead Perley, McKennedy, Stephens, Sammut, McVetta, Tim Jedrzejek, and AJ Lesiecki, who despite getting lapped in the closing stages, ran rather well in his first Oswego showing.

Traffic became an issue again for the front runners with fifteen laps to go and it was then that Stephens took advantage of it to make the move of the race, going to the outside of McKennedy to take the third spot before darting under the lapped car of Lesiecki in the same corner to complete his pass on lap 47.

Perley tried with everything he had left to reel in Lichty as the laps clicked away,, but the once repeat winner of the Supernationals three years in a row was unable to reel in the driver of the No. 84, who earned his first ISMA victory of 2017 and the twelfth of his career, now tied for eleventh with Warren Coniam on the all-time list.

Points, contingencies and special awards for the Supernationals will be available at ISMA press time.

Classic Weekend action concludes on Saturday with the 61st Budweiser International Classic 200 for Novelis Supermodifieds plus the Bud Light Classic 75 for Pathfinder Bank SBS. Tickets remain available for the most prestigious Supermodified race in the world and can be purchased at the track or by phoning a box office representative at (315)-342-0646.

Greg Hodnett Wins Patriot Sprint Tour/ United Racing Club Event at Williams Grove Speedway In Convincing Fashion

(Mechanicsburg, PA) After winning the 410 A-Main at Williams Grove Speedway Friday night, Greg Hodnett came back out in his Mike Heffner owned 360 ride and won the Patriot Sprint Tour/United Racing Club event over Mark Smith and Lucas Wolfe.

Mark Sasso and Trey Starks brought the 26-car competition to the green flag and before they could even get into turn one, Steve Collins was stopped on the front stretch with front end damage after bouncing off the turn four wall, his night would be over.

The field would re-fire with Starks taking command with Mark Smith who started fourth taking second immediately exiting turn two as they were heading down the back stretch.

On lap three, Mark Sasso’s left rear tire would explode leaving no place for Eddie Strada causing him to flip twice bringing out the red flag. Smith would be leading Trey Starks, Greg Hodnett, Steve Buckwalter, and now Robbie Stillwaggon.

On the ensuing restart, Jared Zimbardi who was running 11th at the time flipped forward several times entering turn one bringing out the second red flag on the third lap. Williams Grove Speedway Emergency personnel would arrive to the scene. Zimbardi was responsive but went to Holy Spirit Hospital for a full examination. He was released early Saturday morning.

Smith would bring the field back to green where Greg Hodnett began to challenge Smith for the race lead. After swapping the lead several times, Hodnett would take complete command by lap six.

Another caution occurred on lap seven when George Suprick would spin in turn four bringing out the fourth stoppage of the night. Hodnett would now lead Smith, Starks, Stillwaggon, and Buckwalter. Josh Weller, who used a URC provisional had already moved up into the top ten.

Hodnett would continue to pull away from the field for the next several laps as Lucas Wolfe was also making a push forward getting by both Stillwaggon and Buckwalter to take third. Jason Schultz would follow suit by cracking the top five with less than ten laps to go.

Smith would get one last shot at Hodnett on a lap 19 restart thanks to another caution from Bryn Gohn who was slow in turn two.

Smith, as well as anyone else, had nothing for Greg Hodnett who picked up his third win in 360 competition for 2017. Smith would settle for second followed by Lucas Wolfe, Jason Schultz, and Trey Starks completing the top five.

Robbie Stillwaggon, who finished tenth, was the highest finishing Patriot Sprint Tour member and will receive first place points followed by Jordan Thomas (12), Joe Trenca (13), Kyle Drum (16), George Suprick (17), Chuck Hebing (18), Jared Zimbardi (22), Steve Collins (26). Josh Azzi and Derek Jonathan will be credited with ninth and tenth place points respectively.

With 42 cars in the pits, the five heats went to JJ Grasso, Robbie Stillwaggon, Lucas Wolfe, Mark Smith and Trey Starks. Cody Keller and Adam Carberry would take the B-Main wins.

Two Patriot point races remain with the top ten looking like: 1) 35-Jared Zimbardi (2291) 2) 67-Steve Collins (2266) 3) 47-Kyle Drum (2222) 4) 79-Jordan Thomas (2071) 5) 81-Derek Jonathan (1880) 6) 17z-Josh Azzi (1865) 7) 98-Joe Trenca (1376) 8) 48jr-Darryl Ruggles (1337) 9) X-Dan Bennett (1216) 10) 54j-David Just (1102).

Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt Presented by ARP at Hartford Speedway

ERIE, MI (September 2, 2017) – Ryan Ruhl (Coldwater, MI) charged from the 8th starting position to win the King Engine Bearings King of Michigan finale at Hartford Speedway last night.  The race brought the curtain down on the last race for Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt Presented by ARP at Hartford Speedway.

The 29 qualifiers were led by Joe Swanson, Lane Automotive/MSD Ignition Fast Master (fast qualifier) in the Engler Machine & Tool heat and fastest overall at 14.200.  Swanson looked like he had the speed to be a contender for the feature win, but suffered an engine failure while leading his heat.  Chad Blonde was Lane Automotive/MSD Ignition Fast Master (fast qualifier) in the COMP Cams heat, and Steve Irwin for the RockAuto.com heat.  Ryan Grubaugh’s night ended in qualifying with engine woes.

Ruhl’s win came after he took lead from race leader Steve Irwin (Fenton, MI) on lap 10, but it wasn’t an easy win.  12th place starter Chad Blonde (Litchfield, MI), winner of the three previous King Engine Bearings KoM took 2nd on lap 16, then the lead on the next lap.  Ruhl wasn’t to be denied and charged back around Blonde on the next lap.  While it looked like everything was settled, Irwin found new speed and battled back and forth with Blonde for 2nd.  Irwin took 2nd on lap 22, but lapped traffic in his low groove forced him to check up, and Blonde drove around the top back into 2nd. Ruhl held on to take the action-packed 25 lapper over Blonde and Irwin. 

Ruhl advanced 7 places in the feature, and Blonde advanced 12 places.  However, Brett Mann showed the most muscle by advancing from 19th to a 4th place finish, winning the KSE Racing Products Hard Charger Award at +15.  Irwin was the fastest car for several laps late in the race.

Blonde’s 2nd place finish earned him the King Engine Bearings King of Michigan Championship.  Steve Irwin finished 2nd, Gregg Dalman 3rd, Thomas Schinderle 4th, and Ryan Ruhl 5th.

King Engine Bearings made it possible to take the SOD King of Michigan to a new level as a four-race mini-series instead of a single race.  Hartford Speedway’s Tim and Leah Dibble and their entire staff gave competitors a great race track that culminated with an excellent program and one of the season’s best features with action and passing everywhere.

Going into the 2017 SOD final points race tonight at Crystal Motor Speedway, Andrew Scheid will be the 2017 Perfit Corporation Sprint Car Rookie of the Year; Scheid’s feature ended early on the hook with a flat right front tire.  Thomas Schinderle has a lock on the 2017 Perfit Corporation Series Car Rookie of the Year; Schinderle drove to an 8th place finish after an early race spin.

Danny Varin Passes Jason Barney on Final Lap for Brewerton Speedway Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint Win

By MIKE MALLETT

BREWERTON, NY – Friday night’s Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint A-Main at the Brewerton Speedway was a thriller with Danny Varin out maneuvering local favorite Jason Barney in the final laps to take his fourth series victory of the 2017 season. Varin also picked up the 7-12 challenge bonus by winning from the seventh spot allowing him to take home $3,825 for the triumph.

“It’s amazing,” said Varin after the win. “We are on top of the world right now. We came here and wanted to finish the race to get to tomorrow. We made into tomorrow and got a little extra pocket change to spend with on it.”

Varin, of Fonda, N.Y., ran in the top five for much of the race before making a charge late. He sat third with three laps to go when the caution came out for a spinning Larry Wight. On the restart Varin and Barney battled swapping the lead multiple times around the d-shaped facility with Varin coming out on top on the final lap.

“I really think Barney had a better car there,” stated Varin. “It was unfortunate what happened to Larry (Wight), but it gave us an opportunity to get a good run at Jason (Barney). He’s the cleanest driver out there. Every question I have he answers. He’s just a phenomenal competitor. I just drove it in there wide-open and either we were going to wreck it or put it in victory lane.”

Matt Billings, fresh off his first career series win last weekend in Quebec on the asphalt, redrew the pole for the start of the 25-lap feature. Billings raced quickly away from the field while Wight jumped from sixth into the top three on the first lap.

Billings remained at the helm as Wight kept moving up through to take second by the time race reached lap five. From there it was a two car battle at the front for the lead with Wight eventually wrestling it away from Billings on the bottom of turns three and four on lap seven.

The red flag was necessary on lap nine for a four car incident in turn one. Brett Wright, Dalton Herrick, Jeff Cook and Paulie Colagiovanni all came together with Colagiovanni sustaining significant damage to his No. 10 after going over. Everyone walked away uninjured in the incident.

At the green it was Wight and Billings at the front with Barney racing from 21st to take over the third position. This made it a three car battle at the front with Varin watching from the fourth position. It was an intense race with Barney taking the second with five laps to go.

A caution on lap 22 set up a showdown between Wight and Barney. Barney worked the outside as Wight went to the bottom before sliding up in front to hold off Barney. As they raced down the backstretch the pair pinched down to the bottom with each looking to gain the edge. Wight ended up spinning in the fourth corner as his right rear tire just got into the slick. Paul Kinney, who was fifth, ended up getting into the outside wall as well.

With Wight relegated to the rear for being the initial reason for the yellow, Barney paced the field for restart with Varin right there. The green saw Barney go high into the first corner with Varin down low attempting to slide Barney. Barney beat him off the corner and held the top spot as the came to the line with two laps to go.

They swapped lanes and the lead with Barney coming to the line in the top spot as the white came out with Varin right there. Barney elected to run the bottom to protect against the slide job through turns one and two which gave Varin the open lane on the top.

Varin and Barney raced side-by-side down the backstretch with Barney forced into the low lane and Varin on the cushion. As they came off the fourth corner it was Varin using the high-side moment to drive around Barney for the victory.

“I didn’t expect it,” cited Varin about Barney electing the bottom on the final lap. “Jason knows what he’s doing. I think we have a very similar driving style. He had to cover the bottom. He did the right thing, but I was going to go wherever he didn’t. He was protecting against the slide job. Whatever was going to happen, was going to happen.”

Barney, the current high-point man, was disappointed with himself afterwards that he made a mistake in the final laps to give up the lead after an impressive charge from the 21st starting position. He was hoping to get it done in front all the friends and family that had come out to support him at his home track.

“I’m really bummed out here,” commented Barney. “I’m disappointed for my guys, disappointed for everyone who came to watch me tonight. I got a lot of family and friends here. It felt sweet there for a little bit. I just got a little excited there and started defensive driving instead of offensive driving. I was trying to predict where they were going to go and it cost me the race. I feel bad. It would have been a storybook winning from 21st. Danny ran a hell of a race. He’s a great race car driver.”

Billings came home in the third position after setting the pace in the early stages of the race. The third matched his best finish on the dirt this season with the series.

“This is an awesome car that Mike (Stelter) put together,” said Billings. “We are standing on the front stretch, not too bad. We led some laps. We are getting the car better.”

Billy VanInwegen started 18th before coming home fourth while Granby, Conn., driver Scott Holcomb was able to complete the top five for his best run of the year to date. A total of 33 cars filled the pits on the kick off of a four race weekend.

Stewart Swoops in for Win at Skagit Speedway

Alger, WA - The old adage is “It’s better to be lucky than good.” On Friday night, Shane Stewart proved to be both lucky AND good as he raced to a victory on night one of the Outlaw Energy Showdown at Skagit Speedway with the World of Outlaw Craftsman Sprint Car Series.

Brad Sweet led the initial eight laps of the thirty lap feature at Skagit Speedway with his KKR teammate Daryn Pittman in hot pursuit and Stewart reeling the pair in as the entered slower traffic. Disaster struck for the lead pair on lap nine as Sweet collided with the back of a slower car, collecting Pittman with him as Stewart snuck through the narrowest of holes to avoid contact and take the lead as the race went to caution. Shane survived three more restarts over the course of the contest to pick up the victory, with Jason Johnson nipping at his heels in second and Jac Haudenschild holding off Donny Schatz to round out the podium. Stewart was quick time on the night. Heat winners were Haudenschild, Pittman and Johnson. Jacob Allen won the Last Chance Showdown.

The Northwest Focus Midget Series was the support division on Friday night, with 30 cars ready to battle it out for supremacy. Evan Margeson took the victory on the evening, taking the lead for the first time from Nik Larson on lap 11 before slipping up and letting Nick Evans by on lap 23. Margeson was undeterred, driving back underneath Evans in turn one to retake the lead on lap 24 and running on to the win. Evans settled for second with Tristin Thomas taking third. Heat winners were Tristin, Garrett Thomas and Eric Turner. Shane Smith won the B Main.

 

 

Shaffer takes advantage of Lay's woes for Attica FAST win; Henry holds off Conley for ALMS victory

Friday, Sept. 1, 2017

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Tim Shaffer was there to take advantage when leader Brian Lay ran out of fuel with four laps remaining at Attica Raceway Park Friday and drove to his second 410 sprint win of the season at the track to open the two-night Attica Ambush.

Aliquippa, Pennsylvania’s Shaffer, who started sixth in the 30-lap feature, earned $5,000 for the victory. It was his 15th career victory at Attica as he now sits sixth on the track’s all-time win list. It was also Shaffer’s third All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads FAST 410 Championship Series presented by Ohio Logistics victory.

With just two FAST races left in 2017, Fremont’s DJ Foos continues to lead the series points. His charge from 21st to a 10th place finish will increase his advantage over Chris Andrews for that $10,000 title.

Ada, Ohio’s John Henry led all 30 laps for the $5,000 pay day in the Sunoco American Late Models Series feature. It wasn’t easy for the “Steel Driver” as he held off a charging Corey Conley. The first 24 laps Henry had his hands full with Steve Kester as they raced side by side lap after lap. The last five laps had the crowd on their feet as Henry, Conley, Kester and Steve Casebolt battled.

It was Henry’s first win at Attica this season and the 14th of his career at the track putting him third on the all-time late model win list.

Shaffer’s victory gives him a ton of momentum heading into Saturday’s Dirt Classic Ohio event at Attica with a $10,000 payday on the line. Shaffer also rolls off fifth in the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions make-up feature from the June 16th rained out affair.

“It feels great to be back in victory lane. I have a great group of guys behind me with Jeff Rudzik and Joe Demyan giving us the best cars. It’s just awesome. Tomorrow it’s about doing the right things and getting the car good and the driver running good. We have to start over tomorrow and do the qualifying right and the heat race right. Cody Jacobs has done a great job with this car. That thing was a blast to drive tonight,” said Shaffer beside his Rudzik Excavating; Triple X Chassis; VRP Shocks; FK Rod Ends; Scoville Designs backed #49x.

Henry has not gotten to race a lot the past few years. But it didn’t look like it Friday as he held off challenge after challenge for the victory.

“This is pretty awesome. I was sweating a little bit…my guys kept giving me signals…I knew they were close. I figured if I just held a line…starting up front was key tonight with the way the track was being fast. We’ve struggled on fast race tracks with this race car. Tonight we dialed it in really well. I have so many people to thank…Jim Weber of Jim Weber Motorsports, Charlie Truman, Fultz Fabrication, Accu-Force, my crew, John and Craig…they’ve stuck with me and put in a lot of hard work. We don’t get to race very much because it takes a lot. Thankful for my dad and everyone that supports us. We struggled a little bit off and on the last several years; obviously we haven’t been in victory lane for awhile. So this feels really good,” said Henry in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.

Lay and Craig Mintz brought the field to green for the 30 lap sprint feature with Mintz rocketing into the lead. Justin Peck stopped with a lap scored with Mintz leading Cap Henry, Lay, Shaffer and Rob Chaney. On the restart Henry drove under Mintz to take the top spot and a lap later Lay moved into second and took the lead just before the caution flew for Mintz who stopped with four laps scored. Mintz went to the work area and repairs were made and he rejoined at the tail.

Lay, who suffered a wicked crash at Attica the previous week, pulled away when the green flew with Henry, Shaffer, Andrew Palker, Chaney and Broc Martin giving chase. Lay pulled away steadily until Travis Philo stopped with 14 laps in. The caution kept Lay out of lapped traffic and when the green reappeared he used the clear track to once again pull away. Shaffer reeled in Henry and the pair battled the next eight laps until Tyler Gunn stopped in turn four to bring out the caution with eight laps remaining. That wiped out a nearly three second lead for Lay.

On the ensuing restart while Shaffer showed Lay his nose, Chaney blasted from sixth to third but would slide off the turn one cushion with five laps to go. This time on the restart Lay’s car, low on fuel, would not take off and Shaffer drove into the lead. Shaffer drove away to the win over Martin, 14th starter Byron Reed, 17th starter Joey Saldana and Palker. Rounding out the top 10 were 15th starter Brady Bacon; Mintz who stormed from the tail after his early race woes; 18th starter Cole Duncan; 19th starter Duane Zablocki and 21st starter Foos.

Henry and Minnesota driver Brent Larson paced the field for the 30 lap ALMS feature with Henry gaining the advantage over Steve Kester, Larson, Steve Casebolt and Corey Conley. Disaster struck after a lap was scored when George Lee tumbled in turn one collecting Rusty Schlenk and Ken Hahn. Lee was banged up a little but exited under his own power.

When the green flew again Henry and Kester battled for the lead with Larson, Casebolt and Conley waging war for third. Henry and Kester ran side by side over the next 13 laps with Larson and Casebolt doing the same before a caution flew for one of the infield tires being moved onto the racing lane. When the green flew Henry and Kester resumed their battle as did Larson and Casebolt. Casebolt would take third with 14 laps remaining.

A caution for Devin Shiels put a brief halt to the entertaining battles up front with nine laps to go. On the restart Henry led Kester, Casebolt and now a quickly closing Conley. Conley drove into third with eight laps to go just before Matt Irey stopped to bring out the final caution with seven laps to go. On the restart Henry changed his line from the top side to the bottom which stopped Kester’s challenge. Kester now had to deal with Conley with Casebolt and Schlenk, who had charge from the rear after the lap 1 incident, and Larson. Conley took second with five laps remaining and closed on Henry.

When the white flag appeared Henry and Conley were side by side with Kester only a half car length behind with Casebolt and Schlenk also closing. Henry was able to hold off Conley for the win with Kester, Casebolt and Schlenk rounding out the top five. Completing the top 10 were Eric Spangler, Larson, Paul Stubber, Mike Bores and JR Gentry.

Attica Raceway Park will close out the 2017 season Saturday, Sept. 2 with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champion sprints completing their feature event from the June 16th rained out affair along with a complete program for the Dirt Classic Ohio paying $10,000 to win.

Ensign Wins $3,000 Cascade Wingless Sprint Car Challenge At Southern Oregon Speedway

By Don Martin II

White City, Oregon...August 26...Leading all the way from his pole position start, Geoff Ensign won the 30 lap Cascade Wingless 360 Sprint Car Challenge Saturday night at Southern Oregon Speedway. Thanks to sponsorship from Herz Precision Parts, the win paid Ensign $3,000 aboard the Ted Finkenbinder owned Sprinter. Ensign has become one of the top West Coast Sprint Car drivers both without or with wings. He currently leads the Winged 360 Sprint Car standings at both the Petaluma and Watsonville, California tracks. Cody Fendley turned in an impressive performance as he held off Kyle Miller for a second place finish. Fendley collected $1,500 for second, while Miller earned for $1,000.

There were 22 Sprint Cars, and the drivers each got one lap for qualifying. The Top 2 qualifiers would automatically transfer into the eight lap Scramble to set the first four rows of the Main Event. Ensign turned the three-tenth mile clay oval with a lap of 12.741, beating the 12.751 of Steve Hix. Kyler Barraza was a close third with a 12.807. The Top 2 finishers in each ten lap heat race would also earn starts in the Scramble. Barraza is the 2017 Kendall Oil Winged Sprint Car champion at Southern Oregon Speedway. He removed his wing to race for the big money and finished second to three time Hunt Wingless Spec Sprint champion Terry Schank Jr. in his heat race. Fendley led Miller for the 1-2 finish in the second heat, and local ace David Hibbard won a close battle with Jeremy Wilson in the third heat. Ensign made a last lap pass on Barraza to win the eight lap scramble ahead of Hibbard and Schank. Barraza had problems on the last lap and finished eighth.

There were 20 Main Event starters as Bailey Hibbard and Colton Slack scratched. Ensign raced into the lead at the start ahead of Hibbard and Hix. The flying Ensign was already lapping slower cars by lap seven as Hibbard, Hix and Fendley were enjoying a spirited battle for second. Ensign was a straightaway in front as the second place battle hit heavy traffic. Hix made a Turn 4 pass on Hibbard for second on lap 17, just before a yellow flag flew for debris on the front stretch. Ensign maintained command on the restart, while Fendley moved into third behind Hix. Barraza and Miller joined the intense battle for second, and contact on the back stretch on lap 19 resulted in a red flag as Sterling Kane flipped. Barraza had to pit for repairs. Ensign led the restart as Fendley took second from Hix. The race was red flagged after 20 laps when Barraza flipped on the back stretch and his car caught fire. Barraza walked away under his own power. Ensign maintained command on the restart and steadily pulled away. Fendley was second ahead of Miller. Miller moved up on Fendley, but Fendley stayed smooth during the final laps to maintain the second position. Ensign brought it home to the impressive victory ahead of Fendley, Miller, Hix, Jake Wheeler, Jeremy Wilson and final lead lap finisher Tim Alberding. Lindsay Barney, Kevin Pendergrass and Nathan Johnson rounded out the Top 10 at the checkered flag.

Race Results Wingless 360 Sprint Cars Heat 1-Terry Schank, Kyler Barraza, Tim Alberding. Heat 2-Cody Fendley, Kyle Miller, Jake Wheeler. Heat 3-David Hibbard, Jeremy Wilson, Guy Weedman.

Justin Sanders Very Strong as He Tops Ocean Sprints pres. Taco Bravo Round No. 12

(PETERSEN MEDIA- Watsonville, CA)- Justin Sanders’ strangle hold on Ocean Speedway victory lane continued on Friday night as the Watsonville, CA driver improved his average to .500 as he won his sixth Ocean Sprints pres. by Taco Bravo feature event win of the season, in what was the series’ 12th race.

After enduring a heart breaker one week ago, Matthew Moles would lead the field to green alongside fellow youngster, Colby Johnson. When Ed Entz displayed the green flag, Moles would get the initial jump, but Johnson would grab the lead off of turn two and set the early pace.

As Johnson led early, third starting Justin Sanders would overtake the second spot on the initial lap as the field rumbled through turns three and four. As Sanders closed in on Johnson in the early stages, the 31-lap feature event green-flag streak would come to an end on the race’s second lap.

Back underway, Sanders put pressure on Johnson in turns one and two but was unable to take over the top spot as the Penngrove, CA driver continued to lead over Sanders, Moles, Brad Furr, and Geoff Ensign.

As the leaders got into traffic, Sanders would finally work his way to the front on the ninth circuit as he quickly extended his lead in traffic until the 16th lap when Johnson’s strong run came to a close as he slowed on the front stretch.

With the green lights back on, Sanders jumped on the throttled as he opened his lead back up over Moles, Ensign, Furr, and Jarrett Soares. Very strong up front, Sanders would go on to pick up his sixth feature event win of the year.

Behind Sanders, it was a race for second as Ensign was able to edge out Moles by just .004 seconds to take the runner up position, as Moles settled for third.

Brad Furr held on to fourth, as Brent Kaeding, Soares, Day Day Lindt, Jason Chisum, Colby Johnson, and Jeremy Chisum completed the Top-10.

Brad Furr kicked the night off by earning the Ray Scheidts Fast Time Award, as heat race wins went to Ensign, Jason Chisum, and Moles. Moles was also the Dash winner.

Brent Kaeding earned the High 5 Pizza Hard Charger Award by advancing five spots in the feature event.

Matt Billings First Career Lucas Oil ESS Win comes on the Asphalt at Autodrome Chaudiere

VALLIE JONCTION, QC – Since Brockville, Ontario’s Matt Billings has taken over the driving duties of the Mike Stelter owned #36 he has been knocking on the door in claiming his first ever victory in a winged sprint car on the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint Tour. The ice was broken Sunday night on the asphalt at Autodrome Chaudiere where Billings did a wild outside pass of Steve Poirier to win the one of a kind event in Quebec.

The win for Billings was worth $3,302 but more importantly was a big weight lifted wondering when that first checkered flag was going to come. Albeit it was on a different surface, but the event in front of a big crowd was one to remember.

“Finally!, We got one. We have been so close hoping for a win and everything was just right today,” Billings said with a smile, “Mike just gave me a perfect car, he has driven a sprint car on asphalt and knew what to do with the set up.”

ESS’ all-time winningest driver Steve Poirier drew the pole for the 25 lap affair with Billings getting the worse draw of fourth. However, after his heat he knew he had a chance.

“The car was fast, I needed to make a pass to get into the redraw, we did that on the outside and actually looked like we were closing in on Steve there near the checkered,” he continued, “Mike knew what to do, told me how to drive to keep the tires under me so I had a good car at the end.”

When starter Eric Pivin dropped the green flag, Poirier got the jump but as the cars came down the backstretch Billings already has Stelter’s Mach 1 chassis in second place. Then he went to the same lane he did in the heat to try to make the outside pass.

“I could roll through the corners on the top and also keep the car pretty strait, that was key,” Billings mentioned on his plan, “You have to try the top to pass and I think we caught him (Poirier) a little bit. The lane was there and we were fortunate to get the pass and then the win. Now, we just need to get back to work and get one on the dirt!”

For Poirier, as it was for many, his first time on asphalt as well and as laps went on you can see he was getting more and more comfortable. While his car wasn’t quite as good as Billings, he was never really challenged for the runner-up position that paid $2,268.

“My car was just a little bit tight going in and then a little loose coming off,” said the seven-time champion, “When Matt got by me I tried a little harder but my car would just get sideways so I just tried to settle down and stay smooth.”

Poirier went on, “I didn’t think I would try these cars on asphalt but with the show in Quebec and they really paid good money too we decided to get a car prepared for the show. We still have a bunch to learn but it was really fun. We will take some notes and definitely try it again.”

What made the afternoon for the Poirier team even more sweeter was Jordan Poirier taking the final podium position when it first the team was possibly looking just to start the event as he badly wrecked his primary car the night before at RPM.

The team hastily got Steve’s primary dirt car changed over in the wee hours and then Jordan (who has laps at Chaudiere in a SpeedSTR) found a comfort zone of his own to take third and $1,702.

Rounding out the top five were Dave Axton and Yan Bilodeau. The $100 to win Fondations 55 heats were won by Scott Holcomb and Steve Poirier. The 25 lap A-Main went from green to checkers with all starters finishing the event.

Lucas Oil ESS A-Main – Matt Billings ($3,302), Steve Poirier ($2,268), Jordan Poirier ($1,702), Dave Axton ($1,586), Yam Bilodeau ($1,308), Scott Holcomb ($1,100), Dan Douville ($900), Chad Miller ($850), Dale Gosselin ($825), Paul Pekkonen ($800), Guillaume Neiderer ($775)

Lap Leaders – S. Poirier 1-5, Billings 6-25.

Fondations 55 Heats – Holcomb, S, Poirier ($100), Axton, Billings ($50)

Lap Money: Billings ($252), S. Poirier ($168), J. Poirier ($202), Dave Axton ($236), Bilodeau ($208)

Chuck Hebing Runs Away At Ransomville, Picks Up First Patriot Sprint Tour Win In 2017

8/25/2017

(Ransomville, NY) Chuck Hebing made it look easy Friday night at the Ransomville Speedway scoring his first Patriot Sprint Tour win of the 2017 season over Ryan Susice and Kyle Drum.

Coming off his first ever win last week at Orange County Fair Speedway, Jordan Thomas would bring the field to the green along side Hebing. However, Hebing fired before Thomas in the starters box drawing a yellow and would subsequently be penalized two spots.

Thomas would take the lead on the first two laps and despite being docked two positions, Hebing wasted no time pressuring him for the race lead. On lap three, Hebing would take the high side and power around Thomas to take the lead.

Also wasting no time getting to the front was Kyle Drum, who started seventh and was up to third by lap three. Drum would battle Thomas for the runner up spot for next six laps prior to a caution that involved Josh Azzi spinning on the top of turn three on lap eight.

Hebing would lead Thomas, Drum, Ryan Susice, and Scott Just to the green on the ensuing restart. On lap 11, Drum was finally able to get by Thomas to take the runner up spot, and Susice was able get by Thomas to grab third.

A strong battle for the fifth spot continued between point Leader, Jared Zimbardi, Steve Collins and Darryl Ruggles. Unfortunately for Ruggles, his night would end early on lap 14 due to a mechanical failure pulling into the infield.

With Hebing continuing to pull away, a very tight contest inside the top five continued between both Drum and Susice with Jared Zimbardi not too far behind. Susice would grab second but the battle between Zimbardi and Drum went to the final turn with Drum just barely holding off his brother in law securing the final podium spot.

No driver had anything for the Cobra and he was able to pick up first PST win of the season over Susice, Drum, Zimbardi and Jordan Thomas the top five.

Steve Collins would start third but would continue to fall back in position throughout the 25 lap A-Main going home with a seventh-place finish. Josh Azzi took home his first Evingham Site Excavation Dash win of the season.

Sammy Reakes IV had a very slow start to the night sustaining heavy front end damage during his qualifying heat, he would come home with a sixth-place run and earn him the Casey’s Truck Salvage ‘Salvage of the Night’ award. Derek Jonathan would take the Prestige Pool & Spa final finisher award and Pete Richardson would take the Shuttleworth Asphalt Sealing 11th place bonus.

The Patriots make up an event at the Mercer Raceway Park tonight part Bonnell’s Collison Center Western Weekend which pays $4,000 to win and $325 to start. Be sure to visit www.patriotsprinttour.com and to like ‘Patriot Sprint Tour’ on facebook and follow @PatriotSprints at twitter and Instagram.

Cory Eliason and Shane Golobic snag Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Abreu Vineyards victories over the weekend

By Gary Thomas

Stockton, CA – August 27, 2017…Kingsburg’s Cory Eliason and Fremont’s Shane Golobic shared Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Abreu Vineyards victory lane this past weekend at the Placerville Speedway and the Stockton Dirt Track respectively.

It marked the second win of the season for both drivers and came during the penultimate weekend of the year for the Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Abreu Vineyards.

Eliason’s win on opening night at the Placerville Speedway also marked the third time this season that car owner Rod Tiner has tasted victory with the tour. Eliason himself captured the Antioch Speedway opener in April, while Chico’s Jonathan Allard also won in Antioch on June 17. Friday’s victory was worth a solid $4500 courtesy of extra money from Elk Grove Ford and the $500 Kyle Larson Racing Bonus.

The 40-lapper on Friday started out with Clarksburg’s Justyn Cox jumping into the lead and proceeded to click off the first 20-laps non-stop while doing a great job through heavy lapped traffic. A yellow at halfway allowed everyone to regroup and regather themselves for the finish. After going back green Cox continued to lead, but Eliason began to step up his challenges and eventually sliced his way into the top spot once traffic came back into play.

With the race winding down Shane Golobic overtook Cox and tried his hardest to track down Eliason, but had to settle for the runner up spot as the Rod Tiner Racing No. 83sa crossed under the checkered flag by 0.871 seconds margin of victory.

Roseville’s Colby Copeland had a strong outing aboard the F&F Racing X1JR and made a late pass of Cox to earn a podium finish. It marked the second podium effort of the year for Copeland. Cox and current Placerville point leader Steven Tiner rounded out the top-five.

Current Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Abreu Vineyards point leader Kyle Hirst charged from 15th to sixth and earned the Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Award in the feature. The remainder of the top-10 was comprised of Hanford’s DJ Netto, Placerville’s Jimmy Trulli, Placerville’s Andy Gregg and Medford, Oregon’s Roger Crockett. Cox earned the Metal Works fastest lap in the feature award.

The night’s Finley Farms B-main went to Andy Gregg, while the RacePartsTrader.com Dash was claimed by Justyn Cox.

All Star Performance heat one was picked off by Shane Golobic. A.R.T. Speed Equipment heat two went to Colby Copeland. BR Motorsports heat three was won by Justyn Cox and King Racing Products heat four was captured by DJ Netto. For the first time this season Rio Linda’s Cody Lamar set the LRB Inc./ ADCO Driveline and Custom Exhaust fast time with a lap of 10.791 around the quarter-mile. A total of 31-cars were on hand for round 11 on Friday.

Saturday’s Salute to LeRoy Van Conett at the Stockton Dirt Track then saw Watsonville’s Justin Sanders make a cameo appearance in the Rod Tiner Racing machine. The past Ocean Speedway champ won the RacePartsTrader.com Dash and took the lead at the waving of the green flag in the 35-lap feature.

All eyes early on however, were placed on Kyle Hirst who put on a thrilling charge from the 13th starting spot. The 29-year-old found the high-side to his liking and rocketed around the field, picking off cars one by one.

By lap 11 Hirst carved his way around Sanders to take the lead, with Shane Golobic also right there in the mix. Sanders attempted to drive back underneath Hirst on lap 14, but got sideways and spun a complete 360. He kept the engine lit but ultimately dropped to 12th. With the track taking rubber more and more due to the high day-time temps it made passing opportunities limited as the race wore on.

Hirst was in search of his first tour win this season, but with just under 10-laps remaining got caught up behind a lapped car and that’s all Golobic needed to drive under and assume the top-spot. The reigning Trophy Cup champion went on to dominate the rest of the race to take home his second career Stockton Dirt Track victory and his second SCCT win in the last three races aboard the Keith Day Trucking No. 22 sprinter.

Golobic also earned the Metal Works Fastest Lap Award. Hirst ended up in the runner up spot to tally his ninth podium in 12 races and for the second night in a row went home with the Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Award. Penngrove’s Buddy Kofoid made a late pass to claim the final spot on the podium, with Hanford’s Mitchell Faccinto and Hollister’s Ryan Bernal completing the top-five. The top-10 was rounded out by Roseville’s Willie Croft, Andy Gregg, Justyn Cox, Justin Sanders and Escalon’s Cody Hodgson.

The Finley Farms B-main was won by Kyle Hirst, with the RacePartsTrader.com Dash going to Justin Sanders.

All Star Performance heat one was picked off by Cody Hodgson. A.R.T. Speed Equipment heat two went to Buddy Kofoid. BR Motorsports heat three was won by Mason Moore and King Racing Products heat four was captured by Justyn Cox. Shane Golobic started the evening by earning his SCCT leading third LRB Inc./ ADCO Driveline and Custom Exhaust fast time award by cutting a 13.689 around the Stockton 4/10 mile clay oval. A 34-car field signed into the pits for the penultimate event of the season on Saturday.

The Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Abreu Vineyards will now have some time off before championship night takes place back at the Stockton Dirt Track on Saturday November 4. The evening of action will be in conjunction with the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Racing Series and honors the late great Gary Patterson. Tickets are available at www.stocktondirttrack.com

RJ Pruitt claims first career modified victory
- Greencastle’s Newgent wins second super stock A-main; Beauchamp and Litton pick up wins

By CAREY FOX
Times Sports Editor
PUTNAMVILLE – As the season winds down at Lincoln Park Speedway, the points races are beginning to tighten up, which makes every feature event that much more important to those chasing a championship.
On Saturday night, RJ Pruitt claimed his first UMP Modified feature victory to help him nudge closer to second-place in the points standings at the Putnamville oval. Brent Beauchamp was able to add to his lead by claiming his third sprint car victory and Greencastle’s Jonny Newgent crept a bit closer to first-place in the UMP Super Stock division with his second win of the season. The bomber points race got even closer as fourth-place Josh Litton won the A-main. Just 42 points separates the top-four in the season long points as Jordan Almanza holds the lead by 32 points.
Beauchamp was a dominant winner in the sprint car division as he started on the pole alongside A.J. Hopkins and eventually lapped up to seventh-place in the A-main.
Twenty-seven cars were on hand as Matt McDonald edged Beauchamp in heat race one as Jeff Bland Jr. and Hopkins claimed the final two heats.
When the main event went green, Hopkins dogged Beauchamp over the first 10 laps before the leaders hit lapped traffic. Beauchamp worked the traffic perfectly while Hopkins got caught behind a pair of cars and lost some ground. Meanwhile, Beauchamp began to build upon his advantage until the end as he cleared traffic on lap 19 and pulled away. Hopkins placed second ahead of Bland and McDonald with Tony DiMattia in fifth-place.
Pruitt’s victory held considerably more drama as he passed Kenny Carmichael Jr. on the final two corners of the last lap to pick up the UMP Modified win.
Several early cautions kept drivers from gaining any sort of rhythm, but by lap five, Carmichael and Pruitt had established a duel for the lead. The pair were door-to-door for several laps before Carmichael gained the point and opened a several car length advantage. Carmichael would hold that lead over Pruitt as Richie Lex was a distant third ahead of Kenny Carmichael Sr. and Jake Leitzman.
With five laps remaining, Carmichael Jr. had a solid lead, but Pruitt began to creep back into the picture. With two laps to go, the front runners were in a struggle for the lead once again. Pruitt pulled even with Carmichael heading into turn one and two as the white flag flew. Pruitt got a strong run on the bottom through the final two turns and edged Carmichael at the finish line for the win. Lex, Leitzman and Carmichael Sr. rounded out the top-five.
In the UMP Super Stock 20-lap feature, Newgent lead from the early laps after getting past Doug McCullough. The pair ran side-by-side for a couple of laps before Newgent took the lead off the high side of turn one. Wes McClara edged into second-place as McCullough would pull off the track with mechanical issues. Newgent pulled out to a sizable lead as McClara’s night ended after losing a tire with five laps to go. Newgent got a strong restart and pulled away for the win ahead of Bryce Shidler, Paul Wright, Chucky Walden and Brandon Morin.
In the bomber feature, Megan Cavaness held the top spot early in a caution-filled main event. However, the Greencastle native was tracked down as she suffered mechanical problems. Gary Hayden briefly led the way before also succumbing to mechanical woes.
Litton assumed the lead and went on to hold off challenges from David Bumgardner and Jordan Almanza as Tom Cox and David Wallen rounded out the top-five.

Steve Poirier Back to Winning Ways at Le RPM Speedway with Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints Victory; Jasnon Barney Canadian Tour Champion

By MIKE MALLETT

ST. MARCEL-DE-RICHELIUE, QUE – One night after being disappointed with his third place finish at Autodrome Granby, Steve Poirier did what he usually does, he returned to Victory Lane with the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints. The seven-time champion led all 25-laps at Le RPM Speedway to pick up his second series win of the 2017 season.

Poirier, who earned $2,075 for his efforts, blasted the cushion for the entire distance of the main-event as he kept fellow Quebec native Yan Bilodeau behind him. Jason Barney, the current overall tour point leader, finished in the fourth spot earning himself the 1000 Islands RV Center Canadian championship.

“The car was good, it was easy and it was fun,” commented Poirier. “I had a good starting position so that made my life easy. We were a bit nervous because last year we did good with a good starting position but with our GF1 (chassis). We are short an engine so had to continue with our Eagle which was better than we’ve been in the past.”

Poirier redrew the pole position which allowed him to secure the lead on the opening lap as he beat Bilodeau to the cushion in turns one and two. The two raced away as the war raged for the third position between Jeff Cook and Alain Bergeron.

Poirier’s first taste of adversity came on lap six as he encountered the back end of the field. He continued on the high-side of the speedway which worked for the first few laps in traffic, but it got increasingly more difficult as he put more and more cars down a lap. Eventually he got to a point where cars were two and three wide in front of him. He remained patient taking chances when necessary.

“The first couple of lapped cars were on the inside, but then they were side-by-side on the outside,” cited Poirier. “I was following (Dan) Douville on the outside but I felt like I didn’t have enough room to slide him so I waited a little bit. I didn’t want to wreck him or wreck myself. I thought someone would be coming. That was a portion where I was nervous.”

He got a reprieve on lap 11 as Cook spun in turn two while battling for third. His spin cleared the way for Poirier but provided the field with an opportunity to give him a challenge. Poirier was good at the green, refiring on the outside to keep his No. 28FM at the front.

As was the case earlier in the feature, Poirier closed on the back of the field another time. On this occasion, Poirier’s path on the top wasn’t impeded allowing him to put several cars between himself and the rest of the competition. He led the way with Bilodeau, Barney and the previous night’s winner Paulie Colagiovanni waged a race for second and third.

"The outside was my preferred line," he said. "I tried the inside but I felt like I wasn't good enough to pass a car there."

Poirier picked up career win No. 65 as Bilodeau won the tussle for second for his best finish of the 2017 season. Bilodeau got a lucky break with the first caution as he had lost second to Barney, but the caution negated the pass. He didn’t make the same mistakes after the restart to finish second.

“Steve was fast and we were just following him,” stated Bilodeau. “I tried to keep running my line and not get passed. When Jason passed me I was like, no, but the caution saved me. After that I tried to stay on the top and keep my position in second.”

Colagiovanni blasted around Barney on the top of turns three and four with two laps to go in order to get the third spot. He did so without the use of the rear brakes as he lost the caliper midway through the A-Main.

“I looked at the scoreboard on lap 16 and as I went into the first turn I had no brakes,” said Colagiovanni. “I didn’t want to pull off, I was in a good spot, but I didn’t want to wreck anything. I didn’t push it or anything. I ended up third passing Barney at the end. It was a great night.”

Barney’s fourth place finish was good enough for the Canadian series championship.

“Canada has been good to us all year,” mentioned Barney. “We’ve been consistent up here. I’m a little disappointed with tonight. I thought we had a good shot but the caution didn’t fall right the way. It's been a good season, a great year so far. I’m ready to get home and prepare for a four day weekend next week.”

Paul Kinney finished in the fifth spot for the second consecutive night.

Shouse Finds the Bottom, Claims Sixth SSO Victory with URSS!

Longdale Speedway, Longdale, Oklahoma – August 26, 2017 - Defending tour champion Andy Shouse found the bottom of the track was the place to be just past the midway point of the race to claim the Sprint Series of Oklahoma IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car presented by Smiley’s Racing Products/United Rebel Sprint Series feature finale Saturday night at Longdale Speedway in Longdale, Oklahoma.

Taylor Velasquez and Zach Blurton started on the front row for the twenty-five-lap feature with Blurton shooting out into the lead as the green flag fell. Velasquez, Tristan Oakes, Cody Whitworth and Shouse followed as Blurton opened a half-stretch advantage by lap three. Lap five saw Shouse take over the third position from Oakes while Blurton continued to dominate out front.

Blurton, coming into the night the URSS point leader, began putting slower cars down on lap nine yet that never slowed his pace as he continued with a comfortable lead. The first caution of the feature would fall on lap fourteen when Keefe Hemel spun in turn two.

While pacing under caution, Shouse worked the bottom and found the it to his liking and on the restart quickly disposed of Velasquez for the runner-up position and began to challenge the leader. Meanwhile, current SSO points leader Jake Martens began making his move from his eighth starting position and passed Oakes for fourth and was began challenging Velasquez for the third position.

Back up front, Shouse tried low entering turns one and two on lap sixteen but couldn’t make the pass. The defending IMCA sprint car national champion kept working the low-side around the big three-eighths mile oval and just past the flag stand one lap later, stayed low entering turns one and two once again and throttled away down the backstretch to quickly open a half stretch lead over Blurton.

Not even a late-race caution with six laps to go for a spin by Jed Werner on the back stretch could detour Shouse as he would go on to claim the full-straightaway victory.

Blurton held on for second while Martens spirited battle with Velasquez for the third position ended in his favor while sixteenth starting Gary Owens rounded out the top five.

Steven Richardson won the Competition Suspension first heat race while Velasquez won the Keizer Wheels second heat. The Saldana Racing Products third heat race was won by Whitworth.

The next event for the Sprint Series of Oklahoma presented by Smiley’s Racing Products will be held on Friday night, September 8, at Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Oklahoma for the second annual “Pat Suchy Memorial.” This event is guaranteed to be the largest purse in the second- year history for the SSO as it will pay $1250 to win, not counting the $1500 in lap money that will also be paid out. Just starting the twenty-car feature finale will pay $300 while all drivers not transferring out the that night’s “B” feature will also receive extra pay. The total payout will be released in the next couple of days.

TREVOR BAKER COOKS UP 1st WIN AT NAPA WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY; DROWN CLINCHES CHAMPIONSHIP WITH WIN; JOHN WILSON & BRAD HENSEL TAKE CHECKER FLAGS

Orrville, Ohio

Saturday, August 26, 2017

By Mike Swanger

It was the final night of points racing at NAPA Wayne County Speedway on Ray's Garage night and Wayne County Law Enforcement night as all four track championships went down to the final night. In race action, Shreve's Trevor Baker led all the way in the Fisher Performance Sprint main surviving a late race incident to collect his 1st ever Sprint win aboard the Coblentz Trucking, Exodus Cycles, and Baker MHT #45. Winning his heat race and starting on the pole, Baker would blast off into the lead at the drop of the green flag as Brad Haudenschild and Danny Mumaw dueled for second. That battle continued until lap nine when Jason Dolick went sliding into the infield to bring out the caution and Mumaw would pull off with front end problems as that ended both drivers night. On the restart, Baker would build up another big gap over Haudenshild as Dan McCarron would be third followed by Steve Butler and Mitch Harble as Jordan Ryan began his move to the front. Another caution on lap 17 would bunch the field back together again but once again Baker would drive away on the restart as Ryan moved into 4th. Haudenshild was able to track down Baker in the closing laps and with back markers in front of them and coming out of turn four with the white flag ready to wave, the two front runners bumped and Haudenschild went sliding into the infield stopping his night and Baker was able to hang on to the lead. In his 1st year of 410 Sprint racing, the 21 year old would quickly finish out the last two laps to win his 1st Sprint win as Michigan driver, McCarron made his first trip to Napa WCS a good one with a second place finish with Ryan, Harble and Tracy Hines following. Dolick and Mumaw topped the heats. Andrew Palker, who started 20th after hitting the guardrail in his heat race, finished 7th which was good enough to clinch the his third Track Championship.

Allan Baker would set the pace for the opening two circuits of the Kar Connection Super Late Model feature as fifth starting Doug Drown would be second at the end of the first lap and overtake Baker on lap three and never look back and pocket his fifth win of the season and lock up his third Track Championship. The only thing that slowed the Hall's Auto Sales, Efco Lawn Equipment and ABR Farms #240 of Drown would be a couple of cautions. an early one on lap seven was for Ryan Markham who spun while racing Matt Irey and Craig Wolford for third. As the green flag waved again, J R Gentry put himself into play as he slipped past Baker and Irey for third and on the next trip around would take second from Wolford. As Gentry tried to chase down Drown, Markham had recovered from his spin and reclaimed third from Wolford and Irey with five laps to go. Drown would cross the finish line about a half straight away advantage over Gentry with Markham third and Irey beating out Wolford for fourth in the battle of the #36's. Heat winners were Gentry, Markham and Drown.

Coshocton's John Wilson made his first trip ever to 'Orrville's Historic Oval' a memorable one has he went flag to flag in the Lowes Super Stock feature for his win. Driving the Lity Scrap Yard and Charger Trucking #7, Wilson left the rest of the field battle for second as Jordan James, Bob Daugherty, Gary Hensel Jr., Paul Holmes and Kyle Moore all were trading positions every lap and that gave Wilson some breathing room. James and Daugherty would flip flop second until lap 15 when Daugherty would take second as Moore would move into third. With three circuits to go, Moore took second from Daugherty and with the checkered flag waving, made a run at Wilson coming out of turn four but Wilson held him off by a car length and pull into the Summit Racing victory lane with the win. Moore finished second while Daugherty captured third as all Daugherty had to do was start the feature to secure the Track Championship, his second as his first was back in 1992. James finished fourth as Hensel Jr. beat out Paul Holmes for fifth. Wilson, Hensel Jr. and Daugherty notched the heat wins.

Grabbing the point from his outside front row starting position, Smithville's Brad Hensel led all the all to post his fifth WQKT 104.5 Mini Stock win of the year. Driving the JoyRide Transportation and D J Directional #28, Brad Hensel never let Doug Hensel get close enough to challenge for the win. Cory Staley would run third and that finish would lock up his 1st Track Championship. Finishing 4th was Stephen Crowe while 14th starting Brian Dawson worked his way through the pack to take fifth. Jordan James, Staley, and Brad and Doug Hensel posted the heat wins while Justin Cranmore led the way in the last chance race.

All drivers were in competition for the Contingency Connection's Racer Reward's nightly and yearly awards of nearly $100,000.

Tony Stewart's Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions return next Sunday, September 3rd for the Pete Jacobs Memorial paying $10,000 to win. The Lowes Super Stock will also be on the racing card.

Heath Dominates, Sucich Captures Historic Win at Skagit Speedway

8/26/17

Alger, WA - One week before the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series comes to town, three classes of open wheel action filled the card at Skagit Speedway on a sunny Saturday. Colton Heath was dominant in the 360 main event but the talk of the night was Bailey Sucich’s win in the Sportsman Sprint division.

For Heath, his win in the Budweiser 360 division came after outdueling Jayme Barnes early in the race as the pair traded sliders over the first couple of laps. Heath came out on top of each exchange and after moving exclusively to the top side of the track, clipped off lap after lap with ease as he charged to the win. Robbie Price would run second with Jason Solwold taking third after setting quick time. Barnes and Price won the heats.

For the first time in over a decade, a woman parked her sprint car in victory lane at Skagit Speedway. 15 year old Bailey Sucich led al 25 laps of the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprint Car main event to score the victory, becoming the first woman since Shawna Wilskey to take a sprint car win at Skagit. Sucich had a little luck on her side, as the first three starts of the race wiped out cars starting in positions 1, 3 and 5. Originally scheduled to start seventh, Sucich now sat on the inside pole and took full advantage of her new starting spot by jetting out to an early lead. Four time track champ Steve Parker kept her in sight for most of the race, but Sucich kept a good rhythm around the low groove and dispatched of slower traffic quickly to score the incredibly popular win. Parker took second with James Bundy in third. Brett McGhie was quick time.. Heat winners were Ashleigh Johnson and Kelsey Carpenter.

The Northwest Focus Midget Series was the third open wheel class in action on Saturday night. Garrett Thomas was steady around the bottom of the track as he chased down race leader Tristin Thomas was three laps to go and passed him off the bottom of turn two to take the lead and eventual victory. Tristin and Evan Margeson made up the remainder of the podium. Heat winners were Tristin, Hannah LIndquist and Ryan Cully. Shane Biles won the B Main.

Outlaw Tuner action saw Vance Hibbard win race five of his 2017 campaign with Brian Michelson threatening his lead over the final few laps and Jon Gunderson taking third. Michelson won the heat.

Pittman Fights for Big Sky Brawl in Billings Victory During World of Outlaws Much-Anticipated Return to BMP Speedway; Dimond Wins IMCA Modifieds Feature

Inside Line Promotions - BILLINGS, Mont. (Aug. 26, 2017) - Daryn Pittman returned to Victory Lane on Saturday during the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series first event at BMP Speedway since 2008.

Pittman was also victorious at the 3/8-mile oval during a World of Outlaws race in 2005, making him the first driver to officially win multiple World of Outlaws shows at the track (Steve Kinser won the inaugural event finale as well as two preliminary nights, but preliminary races aren't counted in the World of Outlaws records).

Pittman, who scored his first World of Outlaws triumph of this season on Aug. 4, started Saturday's Big Sky Brawl at Billings on the outside of the second row. He quickly advanced to third place before passing Donny Schatz for the runner-up position only a handful of laps into the race. Pittman was able to drive by polesitter Shane Stewart for the lead just before a caution on Lap 9 gave him a clear track.

Pittman maintained the top spot and held off Stewart during a couple of late-race restarts en route to the triumph in front of the packed grandstands.

Stewart outlasted Schatz for the runner-up position. Brad Sweet placed fourth and Jason Johnson rounded out the top five.

Johnson opened the night by setting quick time during qualifying before he, Stewart and Pittman claimed heat race wins. Stewart was the dash winner.

Jake Dimond captured his first IMCA modifieds feature victory of the season at BMP Speedway. Kory Wermling advanced from fifth to second place with Jeremy Meirhofer placing third, Ty Clemens fourth and Zach Olson fifth.

Meirhofer and Clemens each won a heat race.

BMP Speedway will return to action next Saturday for Track Championships Night featuring WISSOTA late models, WISSOTA street stocks, WISSOTA super stocks and WISSOTA midwest modifieds.

Sodeman wins Race and Championship at Mercer Raceway Park; Kreutter, Fink, Bova, Riggs, and Paden also Victorious

(Mercer, PA August 26, 2017): Jack Sodeman, Jr. won the Precise Racing Products 410 feature event and his fourth track championship at Mercer Raceway Park. He joined Rod George and Bob Felmlee as four-time titleholders.

Also scoring wins in the regular season finale were Scott Kreutter in the Patriot Sprint Tour, Kyle Fink in the Turn 4 Toilets 358 Modifieds, Cody Bova in the Bonnell's Rod Shop 305 Sprints, Tyler Riggs in the Rock Concrete Supply Modified Lites, and Isaac Paden in the Ray's Racing Collectibles and Eperthener's Auto Wrecking Mini Stocks.

Sodeman felt pretty good in victory lane, despite his broken back. "This takes some of the sting away from the broken back. I couldn't climb up on the car quite as fast, but we still got there,' he said with a laugh. "Hopefully, we can stay healthier and not get beat up so much."

He was pleased to gather the victory at a track that is special to the Sodeman family. "Here at Mercer, it's kinda our home track. If you look back in the history for the Sodemans, this track is where my father ran his very first laps racing, and it was one of the first places where I had some of the fist laps I ever turned. So, it is just nice to come to a place that has a lot of history, not only as a track, but for my family to be able to do well here."

Sodeman started on the pole, with Michael Bauer on his flank. They were the two contestants for the track championship. Unlike previous years, which put the points leaders out front on championship night, they wound up there by the luck of the draw. A young fan pulled an invert 6 and both Sodeman and Bauer finished third in their respective heats.

Sodeman jumped out to the lead immediately, with Bauer second. However, it was Dan Kuriger who moved into second from his third row starting spot. Kuriger began closing on Sodeman while they raced through traffic. It looked as though Kuriger caught a break when Jimmy Morris spun off the top of turn three. That would have put Kuriger on Sodeman's tail for the lap 19 restart. But Kuriger never got the chance to go head to head with the leader, as he pulled off the track while the caution still flew over the speedway.

That put Bauer back into the catbrid's seat. Bauer could not take advantage of his good fortune, though. He maintained second over the final six laps but did not contend for the win.

Andy McKisson turned in a remarkable performance getting third in Ken Rossey's machine. It was the first outing for McKisson in 2017. George Hobaugh, Jr. was fourth,and Gary Kriess, Jr. was fifth. Davey Jones was sixth and Vincent Dougherty was seventh. Jimmy Morris rallied to get eighth. Mike Miller and Darren Pifer completed the top ten.

The heat races for the Precise Racing Products 410 Sprint Cars went to Vincent Dougherty, Dan Kuriger, and Jimmy Morris. The evening's fastest qualifier was George Hobaugh, Jr., with a time of 14.210 seconds.

Scott Kreutter covered the twenty-five lap distance in just 6 minutes and 33.595 seconds to capture the Patriot Sprint Tour feature event. Kreutter started on the front row and was never headed. His margin of victory was just over 1.7 seconds. Kreutter had a close call once in traffic, though. "It got pretty crazy there at the end. Three! I didn't realize there were a bunch of cars there. I didn't know what was going to happen."

Dr. Steve Collins ran second the entire way, but he was challenged over the second half of the contest by Dylan Westbrook. Collins said "I kinda had a feeling when we were getting into lapped traffic, it's not unusual for somebody to get up behind you there."

Ryan Coniam and local favorite Dennis Wagner rounded out the top five. Jared Zimbardi, Kyle Drum, Mitch Brown, Chuck Hebing, and Jordan Thomas rounded out the top ten.

The Patriot Sprint Tour had three heats on the docket. They were won by Kyle Drum, Steve Collins, and Dylan Westbrook. The Four Laps of Fame Dash race went to Chuck Hebing.

Kyle Fink took advantage of a restart with just two laps to go. Lonny Riggs had his huge lead wiped out when the caution flag came out for Sid Unverzagt, Jr. "We got lucky on that one," Fink said. "Lonny was gone. I didn't think that there was any chance that we were ever going to win this race. Then, we got that late race yellow."

When the green light flashed on again, Fink got the jump on Riggs, who fought back valiantly on the inside. However, Fink had the momentum and was able to roll off the top of turn two with the lead. Fink explained, "I kinda got the jump on him, I guess, and I got around him somehow. Then he put a slide job on me in turn two and I never even backed out of it. I said, 'I'm either going to win this or lose it.'"

Riggs took another run at Fink coming through turns three and four on the final lap, but came up short by less than a car length. The margin of victory was just .049 seconds. Jimmy Holden cliched yet another track championship with his solid third place finish. Tommy Kristyak and J.R. McGinley were fourth and fifth. Jason Sines, Richard Whitney, Kevin Green, and Sid Unverzagt, Jr. were the remaining runners.

In the Turn 4 Toilets 358 Modifieds, Kyle Fink and Lonny Riggs captured the flags in the preliminaries. Jimmy Holden stopped the clock at 16.966 seconds to earn the fast time honors.

Cody Bova roared to his fourth victory of the season in the Bonnell's Rod Shop 305 Sprint Cars. Getting second was Darin Gallagher, who clinched his first championship in the division before the feature hit the track. Joe Sylvester turned in a strong third place finish after leading at the start of the contest. Andy Priest got his car repaired after a devastating heat race crash, and he finished fourth Mike Miller was fifth. Positions six through ten went to Caitlin Chaffman, Anthony Mohrbacher, Nevan O'Dennell, Jared McFarland, and Logan McCandless.

In the Bonnell Rod Shop 305 Sprint Cars, Cody Bova and Darin Gallagher prevailed in their respective heat races. Bova also set the hot lap in qualifications, at 15.231 seconds

Tyler Riggs scored the win in the Rock Concrete Supply Modified Lites. Riggs jumped out to the early lead, but all eyes were on points leader Mark Marcucci. Marcucci was starting ninth and he had a $250 bounty on his head. However, Marcucci's hopes of keeping his winning streak alive ended on the very first lap, when he was caught up in a skirmish in turn two. While Marcucci was able to stay in the race, he was sent to the tail for the restart.

Riggs again took the lead, and the battle was for the second position. Joey Zambotti held the spot until lap 12, when Allan Dellinger took it away. Meanwhile, Marcucci was working his way back through the field.

A late race caution bunched the field up again, and fans were wondering if Marcucci had a little magic going for him. He lined up seventh for the restart. He immediately passed a pair of cars and got to the fourth spot with three laps remaining On the final lap, he dove to the inside of Zambotti in turns three and four, and picked up third, as Zambotti spun from contention.

Riggs took the checkers, followed by Dellinger, Marcucci, Shane Meadows, and Chris Logan. Shane Pfeuffer, Ryan Baker, Kenny Meadows, Chris Robinson, and Shane Webb were sixth through tenth.

Mark Marcucci won his heat in the Rock Concrete Supply Modifed Lites and also set the fastest time in qualifications, at 18.515 seconds.

Isaac Paden raced to victory in the Mini Stock feature presented by Ray's Racing Collectibles and Eperthener's Auto Wrecking. Paden wrested with early leader Tim Callahan before Tyle Fulton snuck by them both. Then, Paden came back to challenge Fulton for several laps. Paden assumed command of the race and then the battle was on for the second and third positions between Fulton, Callahan, Bill Fuchs, and Ed Haylett

Paden took the win over Fulton, Callahan, Fuchs, and Haylett. Next across were Alan 'the Admiral" Perry, Justin Bailey, Patrick Drennan, J.R. Shaner, and Karlee Longwell. Fuchs' top five finish was enough to clinch his frist track championship. In his post-race interview, Paden announced that he would be leaving the sport to enter the United States Marine Corps.

The Mini Stock qualifiers for the Ray's Racing Collectibles and Eperthener's Auto Wrecking charges belonged to Isaac Paden and Joe Campbell.

Paulie Colagiovanni Dominates Autodrome Granby for First Career Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint Win

By MIKE MALLETT

GRANBY, QUE – It isn’t easy to beat Jason Barney and Steve Poirier with the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints, but that’s exactly what 16-year-old driver Paulie Colagiovanni accomplished at Autodrome Granby. The Marcellus, N.Y., driver drove a flawless 25-laps in beating the veterans for his first career Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints series victory.

Colagiovanni had a pair of runner-up finishes in 2017 leading into the 1000 Islands RV Canadian Tour/Fondations 4 Saisons Quebec Series event. He just couldn’t seem to get the proverbial monkey off his back as something always seemed to keep him out of Victory Lane. Friday night he made all the right moves in traffic and was good on restarts to keep the field at bay while on his way to the $2,075 win.

“I’ve had a couple podiums this year but it’s good to get the monkey off my back,” said Colagiovanni. “Now people can stop asking why we haven’t had a win yet, why do you keep getting second? It’s been good. This feels amazing.”

Colagiovanni redrew the pole position for the start of the A-Main. He bolted out to the lead with Dale Gosselin in tow for the first couple of circuits before he slowed and stopped in turn four to bring out the caution.

At the green, Colagiovanni again got the jump on the competition with Barney making his presence felt as he moved into second after starting ninth. He was joined by Poirier who had advanced from 11th to fourth at this point. Barney and Poirier battled while Colagiovanni kept up the pace at the front.

Traffic came into play for the first time on lap 10 for Colagiovanni. He made the necessary moves to knife through the slower cars while Barney moved by Poirier for good after the duo swapped the second spot several times up to that point.

Just before halfway, on lap 12, another caution came for Matt Billings as he slowed in turn two with mechanical issues. This set up another restart and another chance for the field to pressure Colagiovanni.

As he was earlier in the race, he got a great run off of four at the green to hold everyone behind him. Barney dove low in turns one and two but he didn’t have enough steam to get up in front of Colagiovanni for the lead. Going forward from here Colagiovanni put some distance between himself and Barney.

Traffic came into play a second time with five laps to go. Before it got too thick another caution was necessary for Shawn Donath as his No. 53 slowed drastically coming down the front straightaway. He needed a push to get back to the pit area.

With another caution came another restart. Barney searched at the green but Colagiovanni was just too good. He held him off over the final few laps to pick up career win number one.

“I was getting a little anxious but I didn’t want to push it because I knew Barney and Poirier were right behind me,” commented Colagiovanni. “I just kept it cool on the start and tried to be as cool as I could and it finally turned out in our favor tonight.”

Barney, the current high point man, finished in the second spot aboard his X-1 Race Cars No. 87. Barney gave it a go but was unable to make a move around Colagiovanni. The Brewerton, N.Y., pilot had nothing for praise for the youngster after his first win.

“The race played out perfectly,” said Barney. “We got to where we needed to be early. We had a good enough race car but Paulie was a little bit better. Hats off to him and his engine. He fired really well on the starts and that put just enough gap between us that I couldn’t do anything with him. He did a heck of a job. This win has been coming for a long time. He’s a talented kid.”

Poirier, the local favorite from St. Mathieu de Beloeil, Que., came up short and finished in third.

“With all those yellows I tried playing with the car a little bit,” cited Poirier. “I made some adjustments but they were just better. At the end I lost the brakes, lost my tear-offs. I wanted to fight them a little bit more in traffic but I was just hanging at the end. My car was good, but I was surprised they were really good.”

Matt Tanner ran inside the top five for much of the race eventually settling for fourth from his seventh starting position. Paul Kinney made some ground to get from 12th up the final spot in the top five.
