Madsen Storms to Season Opener Win at Knoxville Raceway!

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, April 19, 2014 – In what many feel is the most competitive weekly field Knoxville Raceway has ever assembled in the 410 class, Ian Madsen struck the first blow by winning the Season Opener at the “Sprint Car Capital of the World” on Saturday night. The win was the third in the Aussie’s career at Knoxville. Joe Beaver took home the win with the 360 class, and veteran Steve Breazeale won in the 305’s.

Brooke Tatnell took the lead from his pole position when the green flag dropped, but the start was called back for a Cole Wood spin. Don Droud Jr. lost an engine at the same time. Madsen used the reprieve to storm into the lead on the restart and set sail with Tatnell in pursuit. While the lead trio of Madsen, Tatnell and Dusty Zomer were maneuvering lapped traffic, a battle featuring slidejobs, near misses and edge of your seat action was behind them.

At the halfway point of the 20-lapper, Justin Henderson, Brian Brown, Terry McCarl, Mark Dobmeier and Davey Heskin were dicing in spots four through eight. The only caution flew with eleven laps in the books, when Craig Dollansky got into the turn two wall. Dobmeier would go up in smoke on lap twelve, ending his bid for a solid finish, but the rest of the event went non-stop.

Tatnell closed late in traffic, but Madsen threaded the needle on a couple of occasions and pulled away. Henderson closed on Zomer and took third on the white flag lap. McCarl was fifth, and Brown, Bronson Maeschen, hard-charger Clint Garner, Josh Schneiderman and Dustin Selvage rounded out the top ten. McCarl posted quick-time on the night, while Dollansky, Henderson and Maeschen won heat races. Larry Ball Jr. took the B main.

“The lapped cars were pretty hairy,” said Madsen in Victory Lane. “I didn’t want to slide across and give someone the opportunity to gain some ground on me. I have to thank Brett Nehring, Matt Barbara and everyone who put this team together. It’s very special everything that everyone’s done everything they have to make this team so great. There was a great crowd tonight, and I thank all the fans for coming out. I hope they come back!”

Beaver led from the start in the 15-lap 360 feature. He had company, however, as Jon Agan and Jonathan Cornell were in pursuit early in the going. Justin Henderson, pulling double duty in the 410’s, shot by Cornell for third on lap six, after starting eighth. On the next circuit, Agan shot by Beaver for the lead, but the move was negated when Ricky Montgomery brought the yellow flag out after stopping on the front straight.

Beaver pulled away from Agan on the restart, while Henderson seized the opportunity to shoot by Agan into the runner-up position. The lead trio remained in that order to the finish, while Cornell and Russ Hall swapped fourth and fifth, with Cornell winning that battle. Billy Alley finished sixth, while Tony Shilling, Dave Hall, Jamie Ball and Lee Grosz rounded out the top ten. Henderson registered quick-time, while Calvin Landis, Dave Hall and Grosz won heats.

“I don’t know who it was, but thanks for the yellow,” said Beaver of Agan’s negated pass for the lead. “Agan had us. I was slowing for the lapped cars and trying not to make a boneheaded move and run over them. We got a restart and made one move through the lapped traffic that I think helped us. (Henderson) will be tough all year, but tonight’s about us and we worked hard for it.”

The 305 main event became a race of attrition. At the start contact between Kevin Hetrick and Sawyer Phillips sent the latter spinning and collecting rookies McKenna Haase, Devin Kline and Christopher Scank. A second try saw Matthew Stelzer gets sideways and Chris Walraven and Kade Higday spinning to avoid him.

Once underway, Breazeale took control from outside row one. J Kinder moved into second on lap five, and Stelzer came back to claim third on lap nine. The final caution flew for Tanner Edwards who suffered a broken front end with ten laps down. The restart saw Kinder lose power, and fourth running Michael Philben break his front end after contact with him. On the next try, Matt Stephenson dropped out of third and went pitside.

Breazeale cruised the final two laps for his fourth 305 win here. Stelzer was second, ahead of hard-charger Stacey Alexander, Hetrick and Keoni Texeira. Walraven, Mitchell Alexander, Bob Hildreth, Jeff Wilke and Higday rounded out the top ten. Walraven set quick time, while Wilke, Kinder and Haase won the heats.

“I looked up on the restart and saw the 88 (Kinder) behind me and said ‘Man, not again.’” said Breazeale in Victory Lane. “He’s a good shoe. We just got lucky starting on the front row. I want to thank Kenny Vrban who owns this car. This race was for him.”

Jarrod Schneiderman (15)

McCarl and Dollansky were side by side in one and two to start the 30-lapper. When Dollansky went low in three and four, McCarl shot around him on the cushion and the race for the lead was essentially over at that point. Moughan was in the top ten when he brought the first caution of the race with a spin on lap four. The restart saw McCarl leading Dollansky, Johnson, Schneiderman and Nienhiser. Schneiderman took over third on the restart. Nienhiser continued his charge from tenth and passed Schneiderman on lap eight before Maeschen tagged an infield tire and retired on lap eleven. Hull went from fourth by Nienhiser for third on that restart, but the race was slowed again by a Neitzel spin on lap 14. Nienhiser pulled the move of the race on the restart, shooting by both Hull and Dollansky into second. The last 16 laps went non-stop, with McCarl never seriously challenged for the $3,000 prize. Nienhiser ran a solid second, ahead of Dollansky. Swindell and Madsen waged a battle through the field to round out the top five.

Drueke (19) 24. Hahn (24)

Hahn had a fuel leak and started at the tail. Brown led Bruce and Swindell early in the 30-lapper. With rain threatening, Winters flipped with three laps in the books. Drueke, Wolfgang and Dobmeier were also involved and retired. Brown led Bruce, Swindell, Loyet and Herrera back to green flag racing. Bergman would stop on the backstretch with nine laps in the books. Johnson had gotten by Herrera and into the top five at that point. When the green fell again, Loyet shot by Swindell into third. With twelve laps down, Swindell and Johnson would make contact, sending Swindell sideways and upside down. He was unhurt, but finished. After aan open red flag period, Brown led Bruce, Loyet, Johnson, Herrera and a charging Lasoski. The top five remained unchanged until Bakker lost a right rear tire on lap 21. The last nine laps went non-stop, and Brown worked the top side all the way home to the win. Forler made late moves using the low side of the track to move up to fourth as the hard-charger. Lasoski cruised by Johnson to complete the top five. Brown’s win followed his victory in the Jackson Spring Nationals here and was worth $4,000.

Cox took the lead early in the 8-lapper, while Bruce got a jump into the top three. After working on Juhl for several laps he worked under him and reeled in Cox. He would take the lead on lap seven with a move on the low side entering turn one to earn the high point total of the night.

Morgan tipped over on the first try at green. On the restart, Brown would slip out of gear down the backstretch. Morgan restarted at that point. The third try was not a charm as Beaver got high into the turn three fence and flipped hard, ending his night. He was not injured. Halverson led lap one, before Drueke moved by. Brown was fourth on the first lap and worked by Halverson for third with two laps to go. Lasoski followed him to take fourth in the last corner.

Bergman led the distance. On lap two, Heser spun in 4th, collecting Zomer. Both were done. Bergman led Winters, Gharst, Halverson and Boston back to green, and that’s the way they would finish.

A main (started): 1. Swindell (2) 2. Bakker (3) 3. Brown (1) 4. Johnson (7) 5. Bruce (5) 6. Dover (17) 7. Drueke (6) 8. Loyet (8) 9. Lasoski (21) 10. Lusk (13) 11. Forler (24, pr.) 12.

Dobmeier (12)

Swindell led from the outset in the 25-lapper ahead of Bakker and Brown. Dobmeier came to a stop off the backstretch with four laps in to bring caution. At the time, Swindell led Bakker, Brown, Tatnell and Drueke back to green. Only two more laps commenced before Juhl came to rest and retired. Back under green, Johnson worked by Drueke for fourth on lap 10 before Bergman blew a left rear with twelve laps in, collapsing the wing at the end of the frontstretch and sending him over the turn one berm and into the guardrail. He was uninjured. The restart saw Swindell leading Bakker, Brown, Johnson and Drueke. Dover was up to eighth and that point and charging. Winters went up in smoke on the attempt at a restart. The race went green the next eleven laps, with Dover moving his way into the top five. When the 8th place car of McCarl got over the turn one berm with two laps to go, it opened the track in front of Swindell, who cruised to victory. The top four locked themselves into Saturday night’s $4,000 to win finale.

Woodke Cup Challenge (started): 1. Halverson (1) 2. Lusk (2) 3. Johnson (8) 4. Prochaska (3) 5. Selvage (6) 6. Wood (5) 7. Boston (4) 8. Swindell (7) DNS – Beaver, Herrera

The challenge was $1,500 to win and fourteen laps in distance. The top two in points in attendance from ASCS, ASCS-Midwest, Jackson Speedway and Knoxville Raceway were eligible. Beaver scratched after his heat race crash and Herrera elected not to start. Wood was the replacement as the Knoxville rep and Swindell replaced Herrera. Halverson led the distance in an extremely popular win for the local fans. Lusk trailed in second the distance. Johnson claimed third from Prochaska on lap three. Swindell exited at the halfway point.

 

 

Lasoski Wins #100/Maeschen Wins Title!

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, August 24, 2013 – It was a historic night in more ways than one Saturday night at the Knoxville Raceway. Season Championship night came down to three drivers duking it out for a title in the 410 class, and Bronson Maeschen came out on top. In the feature, the man who has more track titles (nine) than any driver won for the 100th time at the historic oval. In the 360 class, Clint Garner became the first driver to win five championships in a row, while Jon Agan won the main event. All-time 305 feature winner, Larry Ball Jr., won the championship in that class, while defending champion, Matthew Stelzer took the non-stop feature.

Lasoski’s win was hard-earned. Josh Schneiderman led early as he and Mark Dobmeier swapped the lead the first couple of laps. Dobmeier jumped to the point by lap five, and the first caution came out with ten laps in the books for a stopped RJ Johnson.

Dobmeier led Schneiderman, Davey Heskin, Bronson Maeschen and Danny Lasoski back to green flag racing. Heskin moved into second on the restart, and Lasoski followed him into third by the time a pair of cautions came out for Wayne Johnson and Mike Moore.

On lap 15, Lasoski worked under Heskin for second before fifth running Dusty Zomer suffered a flat left rear tire, bringing the yellow flag again. Lasoski made his winning move on lap 18, and survived an open red flag period on lap 23. Bob Weuve and Rager Phillips were upside down on the backstretch, while Garrett Dollansky was also involved. All drivers were o.k. Terry McCarl, who entered the feature second in points, was noticeably short on power the length of the feature, but his hopes faded when his fuel cap came off before the restart, and he had to restart at the tail.

Lasoski pulled away for his 100th 410 win at Knoxville, tops all-time, and worth $3,500. Heskin passed Dobmeier in the last corner for second, followed by Dobmeier, track champion Maeschen and Kevin Swindell. Hard-charger Brian Brown, who flipped in his heat, Ian Madsen, Don Droud Jr., Schneiderman and Lynton Jeffrey rounded out the top ten.

Justin Henderson, who set quick time, suffered a wild flip in his heat race and was done for the night. He would transport himself to the hospital later in the night. Wayne Johnson, Zomer and RJ Johnson won heats, while Brown won the B.

Lasoski was visibly emotional in Victory Lane. “I’m not a driver that gets choked up, but I’m telling you, this is pretty special to me. A hundred wins. Wow! Brian Brown was here for most of them, my father was here for most of them…I wish my wife was here. We’re going to have a party here tonight, I can guarantee that! When you start eighth with this competition it’s tough, but when you have Mark Burch working on the car and Kistler power, the odds are in my favor.”

“The whole night was a roller coaster,” said Maeschen on winning the Knoxville Championship Cup. “I don’t feel like it’s over. I feel like puking now more than I did earlier! There are a lot of people who have helped us, and it’s great to have them here. We’re going to wait until the sun come up here, and we might just go straight to church!”

Jon Agan led from the start in the 20-lap 360 feature. Champion, Clint Garner, got off to a rough start and came to a stop after a lap was completed. He restarted at the tail. Early on, Justyn Cox and Randy Martin tailed Agan, trading the runner-up spot twice.

At the halfway mark, it was Agan leading Martin, Cox, Joe Beaver and Scott Winters. Winters moved into fourth on lap 12, and into 3rd after a caution for Josh Higday with sixteen laps in the books. Higday came to a stop, and the leader narrowly avoided rear-ending him.

Agan pulled away for his ninth career 360 win ahead of Martin, Winters, Cox and Beaver. Jamie Ball, hard-charger Ryan Roberts, Matt Moro, Nate Van Haaften and Garner rounded out the top ten. Winters set quick time, while Roberts, Agan and Van Haaften won heats.

“We got a little tight in traffic,” said Agan in Victory Lane. “It’s the little things too. I put my steering wheel in the wrong spot, and I had a brace right in my way. If you are in clean air and you’re tight, it’s fine. You get rolled up behind traffic though. I got up behind Higday there, and I was just trying to turn, turn, turn the car.”

Garner talked about his championship. “We had a really great year, and that’s what I’d like to look back at tonight. The race I had tonight was definitely nothing to brag about. Honestly, I think we’re planning to build a 410 deal. We want Knoxville Raceway to be successful. We want the 360 class to be here forever. I’ll be here for sure. If our 410 deal doesn’t work out, I’ll come with a 360. The plan is to come in a 410 and keep up with Bronson!”

The 15-lap 305 feature went non-stop, and pole-sitter, Matthew Stelzer led every lap for his second career win. J Kinder tracked him throughout the event and closed in the late stages, but the Omaha driver was able to hold on for the $600 victory. Stelzer missed several weeks after blowing an engine.

Larry Ball Jr. was into the top five by lap ten, and moved up to fourth and then third the next two laps to round out the podium. He was followed by Tanner Edwards and Chris Walraven. Steve Breazeale, Matt Stephenson, RJ Johnson, Sawyer Phillips and Stacey Alexander rounded out the top ten. Steve Breazeale set quick time, while Stelzer and Kinder won the heats.

“I didn’t know if I was going to have the right setup for how tacky it was,” said Stelzer in Victory Lane. “This Maxim chassis was the one we won the championship with last year, and it’s a bullet. My biggest fear was not being in the car for two months and not having the stamina to drive.”

“The chase is on to get our 410 done,” said Ball Jr. about next year. “We’ve got a brand new Ostrich ordered. I heard Clint say he was thinking about going to the 410. I guess we’re looking forward to that. Clint and I have had a lot of good racing in the past, and I look forward to that. Maybe I can put a couple of good years in, and when Jamie’s fully ready to kick me out of the seat, I’ll be done.”

The season is far from over in Knoxville. Saturday night, September 7, Knoxville Raceway plays host to the Enduro! For more information on upcoming events, visit www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com!

Schatz is Incredible in Seventh Nationals Title in Eight Years

Bryan Hulbert / Bill Wright KNOXVILLE, Ia. (August 10, 2013) Cash on your birthday is always great, but even better is earning your seventh FVP Knoxville Nationals title and a $150,000 bounty as Donny Schatz raced from the twenty-first starting spot to make history as the deepest starting winner in Nationals history; a record that had stood since 1962 when Jerry Richert accomplished the feat. It was matched by Steve Kinser in 1995.

Talking about his mindset prior to the night’s feature event, Schatz was questioned on whether or not he had any doubt he could win, “I didn’t call if doubt, I called it motivation. This race team is unbelievable. I told these guys if we weren’t in the top five on that stoppage, we were going to be in trouble. I did not expect the track to get abrasive and take rubber like that.”

Taking the lead on Lap 41, the North Dakota native worked to 4.093 second advantage at the checkered flag.

“Man to get through there; I don’t know what the hell else anyone wants me to do,” said Schatz whose win defied the odds. “I guess I’m just going to keep doing what I do. That was a lot of fun to be able to start that far back and get up there. I know if it’s that much fun for me, it’s got to be that much fun for everyone here.”

Jumping to the lead from the onset, Brian Brown immediately jumped to a 1.321 second advantage before the first caution on Lap 2 for the spun No. 4 of Cody Darrah.

After a caution on Lap 4, Brown again starting pulling to a huge advantage, pulling away for a 3.602 second lead by Lap 11. Having cracked the top 10 by Lap 5, Schatz continued to quietly march to the front, pulling to fifth on Lap 20.

The night’s competition red flew on Lap 24 with Brown leading over Joey Saldana, Justin Henderson, Kevin Swindell, and Donny Schatz making up the top five.

Working to third on Lap 29 with the track starting to take rubber, the STP No. 15 grabbed second on Lap 32. From there, it was a matter of chasing down Brian Brown who ran amongst the back markers. Almost two seconds behind at Lap 33, Schatz closed to under a half second by Lap 40, taking the lead the following lap, and going uncontested to the finish.

Brian Brown settled for the runner up spot for the second year running. In victory lane, the Missouri shoe talked about what happened in the second session, “I just got out there a little too early on that second set. Just hats off to Donny. There’s a reason he’s a seven time champion. Congratulations to his team. “

Earning his best career finish in the FVP Knoxville Nationals, Justin Henderson completed the podium, only jumping in the American Fabrication No. 1D just over a month ago, “If it wasn’t for Schatz I think, we were close to having something for Brian at the end, but we had a hole in the tire. I was working as hard as I could to keep it up, but if I wouldn’t have pounded the wall trying pass Joey we may have had something, but, it is what it is. We’ll come back next year and try again.”

Paul McMahan crossed fourth with Chad Kemenah completing the top five from the nineteenth starting spot.

Kyle Larson charged from seventeenth to sixth with Joey Saldana seventh. Danny Lasoski moved from thirteenth to eighth with Steve Kinser and Cap Henry, who raced in via Friday night’s feature event, completing the top ten from eighteenth.

The finale of the 53rd FVP Knoxville Nationals began in the “E” Feature with Sammy Swindell winning. Dale Blaney topped the night’s “D” Feature with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. moving on via a “C” Feature. The “B” Feature was won by Donny Schatz with a last corner pass on Lynton Jeffrey.

Kevin Swindell, Roger Crockett, and Cap Henry made their first FVP Knoxville Nationals Championship “A” Feature start.

Kevin Swindell also earned the 2013 Jesse Hockett “Mr. Sprint Car” Award for his runs during Southern Iowa Sprint Week.

Danny Dietrich earned the Rookie of the Year honors for the 53rd running of the FVP Knoxville Nationals, advancing out of the “C” Feature and placing sixteenth in the “B” Feature.

Justin Henderson and the BDS Motorsports team earned the best appearing car of the year. The best appearing crew honor went to Cole Wood Racing. Crews for Joey Saldana and Jonathan Allard completed the top three best appearing crews.

The Knoxville Championship Cup Series will conclude 2013 with Season Championship Night on August 24. All three sprint car divisions will be in action. For more information, visit www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com!

Kyle Larson Hustles into Knoxville Victory Lane

Bryan Hulbert / Bill Wright - KNOXVILLE, Ia. (August 9, 2013) Drama abounded at the Knoxville Raceway Friday night as Kyle Larson raced to victory on National Speed Sport News qualifying night aboard the Abreu Vineyards No. 1KL, earning the seventeenth starting spot in Saturday’s $150,000 to win FVP Knoxville Nationals championship feature.

The 25 lap A-Feature began with a bang of sorts, as James McFadden spun across the track after tagging the back of Logan Schuchart entering turn one, collecting Austin McCarl, Robby Wolfgang, Tim Shaffer, and Rager Phillips. All drivers emerged unscathed.

Crossing 5.054 seconds ahead of Cap Henry, a caution with eight laps remaining allowed Larson to build his advantage as leaders were graced with a clear racetrack.

“I struggle in lapped traffic,” admitted Larson after his second career Knoxville victory. “I was really good in clean air, but once I got into dirty air I was pretty tight, and worried. I didn’t know how close second place was. Thankfully that yellow came out because I didn’t think I was ever going to get by that No. 49 car. From there I had clean air, and that was the key to winning.”

Cap Henry crossed second to earn his first career FVP Knoxville Nationals start as slower traffic racing with the leaders played to the advantage of the Champion Brands No. 54 on Lap 14, allowing Henry to work past Chad Kemenah.

“Me and A.J. are pretty good at making our cars really tight, and going where other people won’t and it showed tonight,” commented Henry on his finish. “I’m pretty excited. My goal was to run in the “B” so I guess we just skipped that and made the “A” Main.”

Kemenah ended up third with Jac Haudenschild taking the final spot into Saturday’s Feature event. Each of the top four finishers earned a $4,000 check for their finish.

Brandon Wimmer completed the top five with Jason Johnson sixth. Wayne Johnson, who transferred out of the first “B” Feature, clawed from twenty-first to seventh. Randy Hannagan, Jeff Swindell, and Davey Heskin completed the top ten.

Going back to the first B-Feature, Sammy Swindell crossed under the checkered flag with the car running out of fuel. Barely holding the transfer spot, the scales would deliver the final blow to Swindell’s night as the Platinum Edition No. 1 crossed light; putting Danny Dietrich in the show and placing Swindell in the “E” Feature on Saturday.

The second consolation feature saw R.J. Johnson lead until the final lap, only to cross fourth after contact with the wall cost the Tampa, Florida native dearly. Tim Shaffer, Austin McCarl, and Don Droud, Jr. moved on.

The National Speed Sport News World Challenge went to Australia’s Brooke Tatnell. Chasing down Jason Johnson from the start, slower traffic brought the opportunity Tatnell needed; getting the slide job on Johnson on the sixteenth circuit to earn the $10,000 bounty.

“I was asked at the Queen’s Pageant the other night what we thought our chances were and I said, we had a better chance of winning the Queen’s Pageant than winning the Nationals. Somehow we just got prettier overnight,” quipped the jubilant Brooke Tatnell.

Asked if he would take the “golden ticket” into Saturday’s feature event, Tatnell replied, “Can I have no seconds to think about it? I’m taking it baby. I’m taking it to the big dance.”

Tim Kaeding worked to second on Lap 21 followed quickly by Daryn Pittman. Jason Johnson settled for fourth with Donny Schatz rebounding to fifth after falling as far back as eighth.

The 53rd running of the FVP Knoxville Nationals concludes Saturday, August 10 with Hot Laps starting at 7:15 P.M. (CDT). The night will begin with the “E” Feature. Each consolation feature will take the top four drivers further up the ladder.

With Brooke Tatnell taking the #55 into Saturday’s 50 lap feature event, 25 drivers will now start the biggest Sprint Car race in the world for the first time ever.

Brian Brown Tops Casey’s Qualifying Night at Knoxville

Bryan Hulbert / Bill Wright - KNOXVILLE, Ia. (August 8, 2013) It didn’t take Brian Brown long to get to the front of the field in Friday’s Casey’s General Stores qualifying night feature, as the Casey’s/FVP No. 21 shot to the point exiting low in turn two on Roger Crockett on a Lap 2 restart.

“Man I’m so happy,” said an elated Brian Brown in Knoxville Victory Lane. “I was so nervous going into tonight. I didn’t want to let all those people down that thought we were supposed to be up here down.”

Pulling Kerry Madsen into the runner up spot, the duo began dicing for the lead as the caution displayed on Lap 3.

At speed, Madsen put the Keneric Racing No. 29 to the cushion with Brown able to throw the block. Battling back after falling back to fifth, second starting Scott Winters pulled to third on Lap 4 while Brown opened his advantage to 1.332 seconds.

Slowing again on Lap 8 for the stalled No. 4A of Jon Agan, the restart saw Brown work the hub with Madsen again railing the cushion. Producing a run down the back straight, Madsen dove for the lead through turns three and four; sliding across the nose of Brown’s No. 21. Giving the Grain Valley, Mo. shoe just enough room to drive across the racing surface, Brown reclaimed the lead at the line.

Closing on slower traffic on Lap 15, the advantage stood at 0.742 seconds with traffic allowing Madsen to make up four-tenths by Lap 19 as the pair began pulling slide jobs on the back markers in a high speed game of cat and mouse.

Pulling as close as two-tenths on Brown, traffic would finally clear with two laps to run, giving Brian Brown enough room to pull to a 0.812 second advantage at the checkered flag, putting the FVP No. 21 outside the front row of Saturday’s 50 lap feature event, next to Joey Saldana who place fifth in the night’s feature event.

Kerry Madsen held onto second and earned the eighth starting spot in Saturday’s feature event. “Obviously disappointed to not get the job done there, but the reality is, I should have good points for Saturday night, and it’s a far cry from where we were at this point,” commented Madsen on his runner up finish.

Kevin Swindell came from sixth to complete the podium; his fifth in as many starts in the Southern Iowa Speedweek. “I really thought I was going to steal one from them in traffic ‘cause I was the only one down on the bottom that was kinda rolling good. Just slipped there once, but we’ve run five nights with five podiums, and a win, so I’m excited to be locked into this deal and go in with a little momentum.”

Swindell will roll from the ninth starting spot in Saturday’s FVP Knoxville Nationals championship feature.

Roger Crockett held on to fourth with the night’s quick timer, Joey Saldana, advancing from eighth. Coming from the B-Feature, Cody Darrah clawed from twenty-second to sixth. After moving back into the top three early on, Scott Winters faded to seventh with Craig Dollansky, Terry McCarl, and Stevie Smith completing the top ten.

Friday’s program will again provide drivers a chance to race into Saturday’s feature event, giving the top four in Friday’s A-Main a chance at rows nine and ten in Saturday’s 50 lap feature event.

Hot Laps Friday, August 9 are scheduled to begin at 7:15 P.M. (CDT). For news, updates, and further information, log onto http://www.knoxvilleraceway.com.

Gravel Coasts to Victory in Knoxville Opener

Bryan Hulbert / Bill Wright - KNOXVILLE, Ia. (August 7, 2013) The 53rd running of the FVP Knoxville Nationals kicked off with David Gravel picking up his first Knoxville Raceway triumph on Racingjunk.com qualifying night, crossing under the double checkered flags by 0.929 seconds as the fuel cell ran dry.

Starting his night timing eleventh quick, the FMR Racing No.6 coasted across the line for third in Heat one with an expired engine.

“I was nervous there. That was our best motor we blew up and this was our little motor,” commented Gravel.

“With the track slicking off like this, you know it was just perfect. It ran awesome but with about four to go, it started stumbling and man, I just got past the finish line. I had no fuel left at all, and I was scared to make weight; but we made weight. It was a stressful night; a very, very, stressful night.”

Working on early leader Greg Hodnett following a caution for Johnny Herrera, the Wright Process Systems No. 6 shot to the cushion to complete the pass on Lap three exiting turn four.

Restarting following a caution on lap seven, Gravel pulled a ten car length advantage on Hodnett with Josh Schneiderman going after the Eagle Steel No. 39, but ultimately surrendered third to Brad Sweet before the caution flew again on Lap nine for the No. 18 of Ian Madsen.

Taking the green with 16 laps to go, Sweet jumped to the runner up spot as Josh Schneiderman’s night came to a close, while running fourth, with a broken rear-end assembly.

Underway for the final time, Gravel went uncontested to the finish. Brad Sweet crossed second, with Tim Kaeding coming from twelfth to complete the podium. Greg Hodnett crossed fourth with Daryn Pittman earning the hard charger of the night, coming from twenty-fourth to complete the top five.

Shane Stewart settled for sixth with Justin Henderson seventh. Paul McMahan crossed eighth followed by B-Feature winner Jason Sides. Defending FVP Knoxville Nationals Champion, Donny Schatz, completed the top ten after finishing third in the B-Feature.

Shane Stewart and Justin Henderson are currently tied in the points after the opening night of the FVP Knoxville Nationals with 481. Brad Sweet (480), Paul McMahan (477), David Gravel (474) complete the top five.

The 53rd FVP Knoxville Nationals continues on Thursday, August 8 with Hot Laps scheduled for 7:15 P.M. (CDT). News and information can be found at http://www.knoxvilleraceway.com.

Kevin Swindell Masters the Capitani Classic

Bryan Hulbert/Bill Wright - KNOXVILLE, Ia. (August 4, 2013) The 2nd annual Capitani Classic was the site of Kevin Swindell’s fourth Knoxville Raceway triumph as the Germantown, Tenn. shoe dominated all 25 laps of the tribute to former Race Director of the Knoxville Raceway, Ralph Capitani.

“From like the first lap, I knew it was really good. I just kept having to tell myself to breath,” commented Swindell of his dominating performance. “There was a real fine line to get off [turn] two that you had to hit, and you had to be pretty precise to get off. I just made sure I kept getting the wing back every time I slipped up because when you get to dirty air, just in that little bit of lapped traffic, these things suck to drive.”

Challenged briefly on the initial start, Terry McCarl grabbed the lead with a low side pass only to see the caution fly for the spun No. 18 of Ian Madsen.

Leading by 2.568 seconds on Lap 5, the caution flew the following circuit for Jon Agan who spun in turn three.

Underway, the race was for third as Brian Brown worked past Justin Henderson with Henderson retaking the spot on Lap 7 with both drivers chasing Terry McCarl for the runner up spot. Closing in on the Rossie Feed and Grain No. 24, Henderson grabbed the runner-up spot on Lap 12 as the caution flew for Kyle Larson who wheel stood the Abreu Vineyard No. 1k before coming to a stop in the turn four entrance to the infield.

On the restart, Justin Henderson dove to the hub in turn one, but to no avail as Kevin Swindell again powered the Indy Race Parts No. 71s to the point.

Working the cushion from start to finish, Kevin Swindell crossed 2.861 seconds ahead of Justin Henderson.

“It’s a cryin’ shame when somebody is that good,” chuckled Justin Henderson. “He was gone. He was really fast. I think my car was maybe good enough to catch him; I just hung around the middle a little bit too long and made some mistakes.”

Brian Brown worked to third with Shane Stewart coming from eighth to fourth. Craig Dollansky completed the top five with Terry McCarl, Paul McMahan, Daryn Pittman, Brad Sweet, and Stevie Smith making up the top ten.

Knoxville Raceway comes back to life Wednesday, August 7 with the start of the 53rd FVP Knoxville Nationals. Hot Laps are scheduled to begin at 6:45 P.M. (CDT). Further information, including night-by-night breakdown of qualifying nights can be found athttp://www.knoxvilleraceway.com.

Stewart Gets One for the Thumb at Knoxville

Bill Wright / Bryan Hulbert - KNOXVILLE, Ia. (August 3, 2013) The 23rd annual Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals ended much like the year before with Shane Stewart crossing under the checkered flag to earn his fourth straight victory and fifth overall Nationals win.

Looking like the $10,000 check was within his grasp, the caution flew with three laps to run for the No. 21v of Justin Henderson, ending Stewart’s 3.672 second lead over Brad Sweet. On the restart, Kevin Swindell advanced to the runner up spot only to see the red flag displayed for the No. 1B of Robby Wolfgang who flipped exiting turn four. Robby escaped unscathed.

To the green, Stewart’s night became one of a fight with fluid dynamics as the power steering failed on the No. 57. Muscling the car around for the green, white, checkered finish Stewart held on to cross 0.546 second ahead of Kevin Swindell who nearly tangled with Kyle Larson coming to the white flag.

“I tell you what, I’ve got a major arm pump,” chuckled Shane in victory lane. “These Sprint Cars, when they lose power steering, you can’t really turn them at all. I just got lucky honestly. I don’t think I could have held on much longer.”

An emotional win for Stewart, who earned Wesmar Racing Engines a fourth straight 360 Nationals victory, Kelly Westphal, was on hand to tune the engine as the pair paid tribute to the late Bob Westphal.

Swindell’s runner up finish is his second in as many years. Nearly getting tied up with Larson coming to the white flag, Swindell commented on the battle as the pair looked close to blows on the cool down lap, “We were fine. I was just frustrated. I had a run and I knew he was going to block me. I just hoped I could get far enough in there and just ran out of room.”

Coming straight from the NASCAR Nationwide event at the Iowa Speedway to compete in the feature event of the Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals, Kyle Larson came from eighth to complete the podium; his second top five of the day.

Brian Brown charged from nineteenth to fourth with Brad Sweet completing the top five after battling several laps with Swindell for the runner up spot.

Danny Lasoski came from ninth to sixth after having to change an engine prior to the night feature. Jason Johnson crossed seventh followed by Wayne Johnson. Brad Loyet crossed ninth with Scott Winters charging from twenty-first to complete the top ten.

The three nights of racing saw a total of $101,890 paid out among 103 drivers. Danny Lasoski and Justin Henderson each took preliminary night wins worth $3,000.

305 Sprint Car Action

In the 305 feature, Matt Stephenson led early on in the 12-lapper. When Sarena Paul spun with two laps in the books, he led J Kinder, Larry Ball Jr., Stacey Alexander and Chris Walraven back to green.

For two laps, Stephenson and Kinder battled hard for the lead before Chris Horton flipped hard in turn four to bring out the red. Horton was uninjured in the incident. Ball moved into second on the restart and began his pursuit of the leader. After a fierce duel, Ball took the point for good on lap six.

Mike Mayberry flipped to bring out another red on lap six while running sixth. Ball was able to hold the lead on the restart, beating Kinder, Stacey Alexander, Matt Stephenson and Lorne Wofford to the line for his eighth career 305 win here. Kinder was later disqualified for an illegal tire.

“I don’t think I was going to get them without the yellow,” said Ball in Victory Lane. “(Stephenson and Kinder) were racing so hard, they weren’t letting me play at all. The yellow allowed me to get a run on them through the middle. It gave me a chance to figure out what I needed to do to get by them.”

Steve Breazeale posted quick time on the night, while Ball and Stephenson were heat winners.

Sunday night will mark the 2nd Annual “Capitani Classic” featuring 410 sprints at the Knoxville Raceway. For more information, visit www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com!

Justin Henderson Stampedes to Knoxville Victory

Bill Wight / Bryan Hulbert - KNOXVILLE, Ia. (August 2, 2013) Justin Henderson has visited Knoxville victory lane five times in 410cid competition, but had not picked up a win in 360cid competition until night two of the Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals when the Tea, S.D. driver led the distance in Friday’s 20 lap feature event.

“We drew a bad number coming in,” laughed Henderson as he commented on how his girlfriend drew next to last for the No. 21v to qualify. “She was afraid everyone was going to hate her, and I kept telling her everything was going to be alright,” continued Henderson. “She gave me a good luck kiss there before I went out for the A-Main and that always seems to work!”

Elated with his finish, Henderson was nearly speechless at times as he thanked his team, “Brent Vonk from B.R. Speed gave me a one heck of a beautiful racecar and we’ve been working our butts off this past month since I got home. I tell you, talk about a storybook ending. Hopefully we can go the distance on Saturday.”

Starting third, the Hard Core Speed Shop No. 21v jumped to the point, driving around Justyn Cox and Josh Higday in the first two turns, quickly running away to a comfortable advantage. Even in late race slower traffic, Henderson remained uncontested, crossing 2.727 seconds ahead of seventh starting Shane Stewart whose runner up finish put the Jeff Gordon’s Kick-It Foundation No. 57 atop the accumulated points, edging out Wayne Johnson by a single marker to earn the pole in Saturday Arnold Motor Supply A-Feature.

Kevin Swindell worked to the runner up spot on Lap 4 but surrendered the show position with two laps remaining to finish third. Clint Garner crossed fourth with pole sitter Justyn Cox completing the top five.

Robby Wolfgang came from ninth to sixth followed Brian Brown who gained six positions to take seventh. Scott Winters, Don Droud, Jr., and Josh Higday made up the top ten.

The finale of the 23rd running of the Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals is set for Saturday, August 3 with Hot Laps beginning at 6:45 P.M. (CDT). The night will also include 305cid Sprint Cars for a regular point night in the Knoxville Championship Cup Series presented by Lucas Oil.

Lasoski edges out Larson at Knoxville

Bill Wright / Bryan Hulbert- KNOXVILLE, Ia. (August 1, 2013) The all-time winning driver in the history of the Knoxville Raceway proved why that is in Thursday night’s Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals opener as Danny Lasoski piloted the Parker Burch No. 1m to victory.

Edging out Kyle Larson by less than a half car length after trading the lead four times over the course of the final lap, Lasoski gave credit to Larson in victory lane, “There’s a reason he got the nickname “Yung Money”. The kid did a great job for not being here as much as he has to race me clean. He didn’t give an inch, I didn’t give an inch but I hope the fans all enjoyed that because that was one hell of race.”

Going the distance under non-stop green flag laps, slower traffic played into the fight for the lead, with the pair also trading the point on Lap 14. “When you’re lapping cars, you just go where they’re not and you don’t know where the second place guy is” commented Lasoski.

“I couldn’t thank Mark Burch and all these guys on this car. Phil Durst and Brian Durst, these guys help us on this car and we get to race very little in a 360 and it sure is a pleasure to race this car.”

The Dover, Mo. veteran crossed a slim 0.126 second ahead of Kyle Larson with Wayne Johnson charging from eighth to complete the podium and position the two time Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville National winning No. 77x atop the night’s point standing; ten markers off a perfect score at 490 points.

Brad Sweet crossed fourth with Lee Grosz completing the top five.

Jonathan Cornell earned sixth after a nearly half race battle with Davey Heskin and Jason Johnson with Heskin crossing seventh and Johnson eighth. Randy Hannagan grabbed night with Jon Agan advancing a pair of spots to complete the top ten.

The 23rd running of the Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals continues on Friday, August 2 with Hot Laps getting underway at 6:45 P.M. (CDT). For more news and information, log onto http://www.knoxvilleraceway.com.

Brian Brown Tops Last Prep for Sprintweek!

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, July 27, 2013 – Brian Brown emerged victorious in the 410 class Saturday night at the Knoxville Raceway in the last action before Southern Iowa Sprintweek gets underway this Thursday night with the 23rd Annual Arnold Motor Supply 360 Nationals. Randy Martin earned his 19th career 360 win, and Travis Cram returned for the first time in two years to win the 305 feature.

San Jose, California’s Tim Kaeding shot out from his pole position to lead the 20-lap 410 feature in the early stages. The event struggled to get started after Rico Abreu spun, collecting Tasker Phillips. Both drivers would retire.

Kaeding led Brian Brown, Terry McCarl, Wayne Johnson and a duel between Ian Madsen and Bronson Maeschen for the fifth position. With nine laps in the books, Glen Saville spun, collecting Dustin Selvage. Both drivers would change tires and continue.

Brown used the bottom of the raceway to slide in front of Kaeding as the two battled for the lead after the restart. Meanwhile, Maeschen moved by Johnson into fourth, and Mark Dobmeier moved into the top five from row seven.

Another yellow, this one for debris with twelve laps down, gave Kaeding an opportunity to ride the cushion back into the lead. Back and forth the lead went, and Brown seized it again on lap fifteen. On the next circuit, Kaeding’s rear-end let go. Dusty Zomer brought out the last caution of the event with a flat left rear tire on lap 16.

Brown was able to hold off Maeschen for the win, ahead of McCarl, hard-charger Dobmeier and Danny Lasoski. Madsen, Justin Henderson, Brad Sweet, Johnson and Jon Agan rounded out the top ten. Madsen posted quick time, while Lasoski, Kaeding, Lynton Jeffrey and Dobmeier won heat races. Davey Heskin won the B.

“Anytime you can beat Tim Kaeding…he’s a heck of a racer,” said Brown in Victory Lane. “He’s one of the best racecar drivers in the country right now. He passed me when I was running the bottom, which is uncharacteristic of me. I was able to get back by him on a restart and it worked out. If we can do this in a couple of weeks, it’s going to be the best night of my life. I don’t know if we can beat (Donny) Schatz, but we’re sure going to try!”

The last prep for the 360 Nationals saw RJ Johnson lead from the pole in the 360 class’s 18-lap feature. With just four laps in, Brandon Hanks slowed to bring the caution. The yellow flag negated Billy Alley’s pass of Randy Martin for the second spot. Following the lead trio were Brian Brown, Clint Garner and Joe Beaver.

Brown shot into third on the restart, but suffered from a stuck throttle and shut it down. On the restart, something broke on the RJ Johnson machine, sending him careening into the turn three wall. He was uninjured.

With twelve laps to go, Martin led Alley, Garner, Beaver and Dustin Selvage. Craziness in turn three ensued again, as Garner flipped from the third spot, and Beaver lost his right rear wheel. Both were done.

Alley challenged Martin the rest of the way, but the veteran held him off for his 19th career win (third all-time). Selvage was third, ahead of Rager Phillips and Jarrod Schneiderman. Jamie Ball, hard-charger Russ Hall, Nate Van Haaften, Matt Moro and Jamie Veal rounded out the top ten. Ball set quick time, while Chris Martin, Phillips, Schneiderman and Brown won heat races. Moro won the B. Jon Agan suffered a tough night with a heat race flip in turn one. He was uninjured, but done in the 360 for the night.

“It was good to get another win up here,” said California, Missouri’s Martin. “I saw Brownie had his problems there, and the 40 and 53 crashed. Billy is tough, and I knew if I messed up one time, it’s over. I did a lot of praying those last three laps. This was the first Chevy Roush-Yates ever built. I’m excited to get a win for them.”

Chris Walraven shot out to the early lead in the 12-lap 305 feature. When Sawyer Phillips climbed the back end of Bob Hildreth’s machine and left it crippled, the caution came out with just a lap in the books.

Travis Cram restarted second, ahead of Josh Higday, Larry Ball Jr. and Stacey Alexander. Ball quickly shot into third, while Cram exercised a move for the lead on lap four, acing his old 410 counterpart in the process.

Cram was able to survive one more caution to win in Bruce Clark’s #66 in his first outing in two years. Ball moved into second ahead of Walraven with two laps to go. Higday and Steve Breazeale followed. Matt Stephenson, Mike Mayberry, Steve Palmer, hard-charger Tanner Edwards and Andrew Shelton rounded out the top ten.

Mayberry posted quick time, while Stephenson and Walraven took heat race wins.

“I was kind of wondering how these 305’s would go around the top,” said Cram in Victory Lane. “They are kind of low on power. It’s pretty easy to sneak around the bottom. It worked out well. I spent quite a few years racing with those two (Walraven and Ball). I knew I was getting a better jump out of two than Walraven. He made it interesting going down the back chute.”

Lasoski Hits Number 99 at Knoxville

By Bob Wilson

KNOXVILLE, IOWA � July 20, 2013 � Danny Lasoski is just one marker away from reaching the century mark at Knoxville Raceway. Saturday night he captured his 99th career feature event win at this historic race track during the 3M Night of racing. His nephew Brian Brown won the feature for 360s and Larry Ball Jr. was the victor in the 305 division.

The 410 feature went red right away as pole sitter Tasker Phillips went up and over the right rear tire of Brandon Wimmer at the start as the front running cars went into turn two. He was not hurt but his car rode the wrecker�s hook to the pits.

On a complete restart Lasoski moved forward to fill the gap and claim the pole. He immediately shot to the front and uncharacteristically took to the cushion on the big half-mile oval. Wimmer chased him for three laps but dropped from the race after the third lap.

For the next four laps Don Droud Jr. took up the chase of the fleet Lasoski but was unable to keep pace with the front running car. Behind him Brian Brown was on the move and on lap eight he took the runner-up spot and began his pursuit to the �Dude from Dover�.

With the race reaching the half-way point of this 10-mile sprint, lap traffic would surely impede the point position car and give Brown a chance for the win. However, that was not to happen as Lasoski handled the slower cars as deftly as Brown did behind him. In fact, at the end of lap sixteen, Brown was just exiting turn four as Lasoski flew by the flagstand.

The final four laps saw the leader finally becoming slowed with cars ahead of him. That is when it looked as if Brown stood a chance to make a race of it. On lap 19 Lasoski jumped the cushion in turn two enabling Brown to move in close. Just after the white flag was displayed to the two frontrunners it was Brown�s turn to hit that same section of loose dirt above the cushion in turn two. However, he managed to free himself immediately from the �marbles� and shot down the back chute after the leader.

In the end Lasoski made no mistakes and took the all-time leading 99th career win here by no more than three car lengths over Brown. Davey Heskin was third as Droud Jr. impressed to finish fourth. Last week�s winner, Bronson Maeschen took fifth in a race that went the distance with no yellows or red.

The 360 feature saw the return of Nebraska�s Billy Alley who appeared to have not lost a bit of his driving finesse at this central Iowa racing facility. Alley took the lead at the outset and soon had Brian Brown nipping at his tail tank as the Missouri driver was pulling double duty on this night.

Lap four saw the red fly to bring the race to a halt when a 3-car accident occurred just into turn four. The cars of JD Johnson and Allen Ambers were involved initially and then Ricky Montgomery slid into the hapless Ambers machine. No one was hurt.

The restart saw Alley once again hold his lead position but Brown was on the move. Two laps later Brown slid Alley in turns three and four but Alley shot back and took the lap at the flag stand. As that duo headed into turn one Brown once again made the pass and this time it stuck.

At the half-way mark of this 18 lapper, Brown hit lap traffic but his skills in a sprint car saw him maneuver easily when a car was to be passed. Behind him was the current Knoxville track points leader Clint Garner. Though Garner roared around the top of the track he could not make a dent in the Brown lead.

In the end it was Brown taking the win as Garner finished second. Alley came across the stripe in third, Joe Beaver who fought Alley for that spot in the latter stages of the race settled for fourth and Russ Hall was fifth.

The 305 feature saw Larry Ball Jr. again on the victory stand in a 12-lap race that went flag to flag. He grabbed the lead at the outset and roared away from the field of challengers.

Quickly he hit lap traffic on the fifth circuit but the back markers did not slow him at all. At the end of the six-mile jaunt Ball had the field covered and came across the finish line as second place Jay Kinder was exiting turn four. Following that duo was Chris Walraven, rookie Sawyer Phillips and Bob Hildreth.
