Topping a stout field of 29 drivers at Lawton Speedway with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. won the battle through traffic to pick up $2,000 and his sixth ASCS sanctioned victory of the 2017 season.

Steven Drevicki picked up his first Capitol Renegade United Racing Club win and his first win in a 360-sprint car. The multi time ARDC champion made the jump to a full-sized sprint car last year stepping into the 358 division but recently the team acquired a 360 motor so the team could run with the Capitol Renegade United Racing Club in both the winged and wingless division.

Say What!

"You don't even know what it means to me to finally get here in Victory Lane,I know the East Coast isn't always kind to me, but I am very happy and going to cherish this win." Shane Stewart winning Williams Grove Speedway WoO Morgan Cup Saturday

"It's definitely huge to win in PA at all,To win Lincoln and Williams Grove is really good. We have to enjoy this a little bit tonight, but tomorrow's a new day. We're really happy with where we're at right now and we'll keep moving forward. I'm definitely lucky right now,I need to play the lottery or something. It's just one of those things where when it goes your way, it goes your way. Last year, Daryn Pittman got a lot of draws that went his way and right now it's our time. It goes in phases. It's a long, long season and we'll take it when we can."David Gravel winning Williams Grove Speedway WoO

"It's definitely huge,World of Outlaws guys do not win many Outlaw shows in PA, so to win here is great, at a track that I haven't really been good at in the past. To do that is awesome, to get our sixth win is awesome.You never know when your next win will be and it's been a couple weeks, so it's good to get another one and keep clicking them off. Hopefully this momentum carries on to Williams Grove." David Gravel winning Lincoln Speedway WoO

Greg Hamilton held point for the first three turns in lap one, but the veteran Solwold hit his marks perfectly on the bottom of corner three and four, passing Hamilton at corner exit to take the top spot. Multiple restarts gave Colton Heath an opportunity to pick his way to second, and a lap seventeen restart gave the defending track champ a shot at Solwold late, but Jason held strong to take the win ahead of Colton and Robbie Price.

  • Paulie Colagiovanni was in a three-way battle for his first 360 win of his career when his night abruptly ended. Colagiovanni and the All-Star Performance #10 headed to Outlaw Speedway on Friday night and were one of 21 teams on hand. Colagiovanni night started as the fastest in time trials and started on the pole for heat race #2. Colagiovanni finished in the runner up position for the heat race just behind the #87 of Jason Barney. Chad Miller and Colagiovanni made up the front row for the feature event. At the drop of the green, Jeff Cook slide up in front of Colagiovanni for the lead with the #10 car close behind. A lap 5 restart put the 10 back on Cook’s bumper and on the restart a charging Coleman Gullick over took Colagiovanni for 2nd but a lap 13 yellow brought the 10 to the inside for a double file restart. At the drop of the green, Colagiovanni took back 2nd from Gullick and set his sights on the #10c car of Cook. Colagiovanni and Cook battled but Colagiovanni’s night came to an unfortunate end on a lap 17 tangle. Colagiovanni wrestled the lead away from Cook as he slid up in front of the 10c car. Cook then tried to cross him over and dove to the inside down the front stretch. As they entered turn 1, both drivers went for the same piece of real estate, colliding and sending both drivers nearly flipping up the track. Colagiovanni’s night was finished. Colagiovanni and the 10 team will now head south to the Selinsgrove Speedway for Saturday night. Look for the black, blue and white 10 car to be up front tonight on the ½ mile facility. 5/20

  • Brett Michalski)Brett Michalski battled all night long aboard the JR Michalski Heating and Air Conditioning #73b car at the Bedford Speedway. With 27 cars signed into the pits for the annual stop of the Capitol Renegade United Racing Club event, Michalski started in the 8th position in heat race #2. An outside start slowed Michalski’s momentum heading into turn 1 and Michalski slipped back to the 9th position. Michalski then had to battle multiple 358 cars to just get by them but unfortunately laps ran out before Michalski could mount a further challenge for position. Michalski started the A-Main in the 20th starting position. With a track that was very different from the heat races, many racers struggled to get a grip on the tricky surface. A lap 9 caution involving Michalski erased all the work that Michalski had done up to that point. Starting at the rear of the field again, Michalski was able to climb back into the 15th finishing position. Michalski’s plans are now to test his 410 Sprint Car in preparation for Tuesday Nights World of Outlaws visit to New Egypt Speedway. Michalski will be on hand with the newly lettered 73b car. Michalski will next head to Selinsgrove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway for a Memorial Day weekend double header. 5/20
  • Ed Aikin)Ed Aikin and the Tan Racing Collectibles, Chips Auto Center #7 team headed to the Bedford Speedway on Friday night for the Capitol Renegade United Racing Clubs visit to the historic facility. With 27 cars signed into the pit area, Aikin started in the 7th position for heat race #2. With only 6 advancing to the feature event and 3 to the redraw, Aikin was going to have to pick up a few spots to advance to the A-Main. Aikin finished in the 5th position directly transferring into the feature event. Aikin started in the 14th position for the 25-lap feature and consistently ran inside the top 15 all night long. Unfortunately, the track got extremely loose and almost all of the drivers went to the bottom of the track making passing very difficult. Aikin brought home the #7 car in the 14th position. Aikin will now head to Selinsgrove Speedway next Saturday night and then to Port Royal Speedway on Sunday night for a Memorial Day weekend double header. 5/20
  • Josh Weller)Josh Weller and the Schearers VW & Audi Specialists #63 team headed to Bedford Speedway looking to begin 3 races in 3 nights’ weekend. Weller was one of 27 cars signed into the pit area on Friday night and started in the 4th position of a stacked heat race #3. At the drop of the green, Weller rocketed the yellow and white machine into the 2nd position and immediately began pressuring front runner Colby Womer for the lead. By the 2nd lap, Weller looked outside of the 3z car in turns 1 and 2 but was immediately cut off. Weller tucked behind the 3z down the back stretch and entering turn 1 on lap 3 tried the high side again. As Weller was looking to complete the pass, the two cars touched sending Weller hard into the turn 2 wall. After the car was brought back to the pit area, extensive damage could be seen on the right front. The hit actually bent the entire front end of the J&J chassis to the left. The hit ended Weller’s night and weekend. Weller will now have just over a week to regroup before the Capitol Renegade United Racing Club heads to the Selinsgrove Speedway during a Memorial Day double header. 5/20
  • Davie Franek)Davie “No Panic” Franek brought up another runner up finish on Friday night at the Bedford Speedway. Franek and the #28f Franek Auto Sales, Escape RV headed west from their Wantage NJ home to the Bedford Speedway on Friday night. Franek who has posted back to back top 2 finishes during the young 2017 Capitol Renegade United Racing Club season was looking to continue the streak. Franek who finished in the runner up spot opening night at Bridgeport Speedway and then won just a few weeks ago at Selinsgrove was looking to continue to momentum. On Friday night with 27 cars signed into the pit area, Franek started in the 3rd position in heat race #3. At the drop of the green Franek settled into the 3rd position and had a front row view of the Josh Weller, Colby Womer battle. Once the two made contact and ended Weller’s night, Franek was in prime positon for the heat race win. Holding of a charging Mark Smith, Franek won the heat race and advanced to the A-Main and the redraw. After redrawing 4th, Franek started the 25-lap feature event behind the 5G of Curt Michael. At the drop of the green, Franek settled into the runner up position again, this time behind the 56 of Chris Coyle. With Coyle battling lapped traffic by the 7th lap, a third place running Mark Smith slipped by both Franek and Coyle for the lead. Franek continued to chase Smith for the remaining laps, getting to his rear bumper but never able to mount a charge. Franek’s 2nd place finish along with a 5th place finish by Curt Michael, Franek is in a familiar position a top of the Capitol Renegade United Racing Club points standings. Franek and the 28f team will now stay out in central PA and race at the Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night with the Empire Super Sprints series. The last two times Franek has visited the ½ mile facility have resulted in the 28f parking it in victory lane. Look for Franek to be up front on Saturday night. 5/20
  • Robbie Stillwaggon)Robbie Stillwaggon and the #89 Quality Auto Body team headed west on Friday night to the Bedford Speedway in search of the Capitol Renegade United Racing Club’s top $1,500 prize money. With 27 cars signed into the pits, Stillwaggon started in the 5th position for heat race #2. With a 3rd place finish in heat race #2, Stillwaggon not only advanced to the feature event, but also qualified for the redraw. After redrawing 5th for the 25-lap feature event, Stillwaggon started behind heavy hitters, Davie Franek and Mark Smith. At the drop of the green Stillwaggon and the #89 car headed straight to the bottom of the racetrack and by lap 5, Stillwaggon was shown in the 6th position. By lap 9, Stillwaggon was back to 7th but with nobody running the top and everyone on the bottom passing was at a premium. As the track surface continued to change and the middle to top part of the track came in, the laps just ran out before Stillwaggon could mount a challenge. Stillwaggon and crew will now head to Selinsgrove Speedway for Saturday night’s Empire Super Sprints 360 race paying $2,000 to win. Look for the 89 to be up front as Stillwaggon is always a contender at the ½ mile facility. 5/20
