Beckinger led Weyant, Faucon, Moughan and Brown on the restart. Moughan moved into third before Hall spun and had to exit with two laps in. The leader went up in smoke and exited on lap five. Weyant inherited the lead. With nine laps in, Ward got over the gnarly cushion in three and four and got upside down. Weyant led Moughan, Faucon and a back and forth battle for the final transfer between Thomas and Clauson. Both got by Faucon for the last transfer in a three-way battle for two transfers.

A main (started): 1. Jerrod Hull (2) 2. Jimmy Hurley (1) 3. Paul Nienhiser (11) 4. Joe B. Miller (10) 5. AJ Bruns (12) 6. Robbie Standridge (7) 7. Chris Urish (3) 8. Trey Datweiler (15) 9.

Nimee slammed the wall and came to a stop with 8 laps in. He would retire. Hurley led Hull, Loyet, Nienhiser and Miller back to green. Hull would slide into the lead at that point, and Loyet would take second on lap 12. Nine laps later, Hull was maneuvering the turn three cushion when Loyet got too hot and into his tail. Loyet would tip over, while Hull would do a complete 360 spin and keep it going. Hurley would inherit second ahead of Nienhiser, Tripplett, Miller and a charging Clauson. Lap 22 would be unlucky for Tripplett who jumped the cushion in four and flipped. That collected Clauson and Weyant, who would continue. Hull was able to hold off Hurley and Nienhiser for the win. He clinched his fourth MOWA title in the process.

Heat two (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Bryan Clauson 63 (2*) 2. Zach Daum 5D (6*) 3. Cole Wood 17w (1*) 4. Keith Rauch 47 (5*) 5. Terry Babb 88 (4) 6. Andy Baugh 6B (7) 7. Dave Camfield 86c (3)

Clauson led Wood and Daum early. On lap three, Daum shot by Wood into second. Clauson was able to hold him off after a good battle.

Heat three (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Seth Motsinger 2 (2*) 2. Daniel Robinson 57D (3*) 3. Andy Malpocker 22 (5*) 4. Parker Price-Miller 9P (7*) 5. Mark Chisholm 56x (1) 6. Dave Camfield Jr. 86s (4) 7. Tyler Robbins 5H (6)

Wyoming’s Chisholm took the early lead, but Motsinger grabbed it on lap two. Robbins flipped hard in turn three at the halfway point. He was unhurt, but done for the night. On the restart, Malpocker shot by Chisholm for third, while Price-Miller took fourth on a last lap that saw chaos in positions two through five.

Heat four (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Darren Hagen 56 (4*) 2. Justin Peck 5x (3*) 3. Ryan Criswell 11R (2*) 4. Spencer Bayston 39 (5*) 5. Dalton Camfield 87 (7) 6. Tyler Roth 0z (1) 7. Brian Rieck 0 (6)

Criswell led Roth and Hagen early. Hagen would grab second on lap two, while Roth would spin. Another spin a lap later by Bayston would slow things again. Criswell and Hagen dueled for the lead, before Hagen took charge on lap five. Peck would slide by Criswell on the last lap.

B main (started): 1. Ryan Robinson (4) 2. Andy Baugh (3) 3. Gage Walker (6) 4. Dave Camfield (10) 5. Mark Chisholm (5) 6. Dalton Camfield (1) / 7. Dave Camfield Jr. (7) 8. Lance Bennett (9) 9. Dave McKay (11) 10. Tyler Roth (8) 11. Terry Babb (2) DNS – Brian Rieck, Tyler Robbins

Babb exited on the first lap of the 12-lapper. Robinson went to the front immediately when the green dropped and never looked back. One caution slowed things when Roth clipped an infield tire with a lap in. Baugh shot from third to second at that point. A good battle ensued for the final transfer with three Camfields in the mix.

A main (started): 1. Bryan Clauson (5) 2. Darren Hagen (1) 3. Andrew Felker (10) 4. Tanner Thorson (3) 5. Justin Peck (8) 6. Zach Daum (2) 7. Daniel Robinson (7) 8. Spencer Bayston (14) 9. Austin Brown (4) 10. Parker Price-Miller (11) 11. Ryan Criswell (12) 12. Keith Rauch (13) 13. Gage Walker (19) 14. Jake Neuman (15) 15. Mark Chisholm (21) 16. Andy Malpocker (9) 17. Andy Baugh (18) 18. Dave Camfield (20) 19. Cole Wood (16) 20. Dalton Camfield (22) 21. Ryan Robinson (17) 22. Seth Motsinger (6)

Motsinger broke a rear-end on the first lap of the 30-lapper. Thorson grabbed the early lead over Hagen and Daum. R. Robinson broke a front end and collected Baugh and Dave Camfield. Robinson retired. Thorson led Hagen, Daum, Clauson and Felker on the restart. Daum would check up and lose power with seven laps in while running third. On lap eight, Wood retired with a broken front end. A three-way duel for first ensued that will be fun to watch on MavTV, but was a nightmare for scorers. Clauson shot to the lead in a three-wide battle on the restart. Baugh spun on lap 15, while Bayston changed a flat right rear. Clauson led Thorson, Hagen, D. Robinson and Felker on the restart. Thorson would surge back to the lead on lap 17, before Clauson would take it back on lap 20 in a fierce three-way battle with Hagen. The final caution flew for Malpocker, who stopped while vying for a top five on lap 22. Clauson held on, ahead of Hagen and the hard-charger, Felker.

Two and a half inches of rain left the track with some obstacles, but at the end of the night, it was all worth it, with Wayne Johnson taking home over $59,000 in a great race.

 

Heat one (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Jason Martin 5x (6*) 2. Dusty Zomer 82x (8*) 3. John Klabunde 77 (1) 4. Josh Baughman 17x (3) 5. Ryan Roberts 18R (5) 6. Jason Danley 82 (4) 7. Justin Henderson 24BH (7) 8. Harli White 17w (2)

 

White took the lead on lap one of the 8-lapper, but lost power completing the lap.  Klabunde inherited the lead and led Martin up from sixth, Baughman, Danley and Zomer back to green flag racing.  Zomer shot to third on the restart, while Martin took the lead on lap four.  Zomer grabbed second on lap five.  Both made the feature redraw.

 

Heat two (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Jarrod Schneiderman 14s (2*) 2. Thomas Kennedy 20K (4*) 3. Jeff Swindell 94 (3) 4. Brandon Hanks 3H (8*) 5. Tyler Drueke 12 (5) 6. Billy Alley 3 (7) 7. David Kubart 44K (1) 8. Wade Nygaard 9N (6)

 

Schneiderman led the distance.  Hanks was the hard-charger, going from 8th to 4th.

 

Heat three (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Tony Bruce Jr. 18 (1*) 2. Sam Hafertepe Jr. 15H (4*) 3. Brian Brown 21 (3) 4. Blake Hahn 17 (5) 5. Clint Garner 40 (8) 6. Stevie Smith 4 (7) 7. Gage Dorr 17G (2) 8. Davey Heskin 99 (6)

 

Bruce led the distance.  The first lap saw a lot of shake-up and side by side action that quickly sorted out.

 

Heat four (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Seth Brahmer 13v (1*) 2. Johnny Herrera 45x (3*) 3. Tasker Phillips 7TAZ (2) 4. Terry McCarl 6 (4) 5. Lee Grosz 4J (5) 6. Tony Shilling 22 (7) 7. Jack Dover 53 (6) 8. Randy Hibbs 2A (8)

 

Brahmer led the duration in a mostly single-file affair.

 

Heat five (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Danny Lasoski 1m (1*) 2. Matt Covington 95 (2*) 3. Aaron Reutzel 87 (4*) 4. Sheldon Haudenschild 1B (5) 5. Ian Madsen 18M (8) 6. Lou Kennedy Jr. 21K (6) 7. Jonathan Cornell 17wx (3) 8. Stu Snyder 23s (7)

 

Madsen would get a good start and charge to third, but it was too good a start, and he was penalized two spots after the race for jumping.  Covington looked to be leaving everyone behind, but Lasoski made a late charge and passed him on the last lap for the win.

 

B main one (started): 1. Clint Garner (1) 2. Jeff Swindell (2) 3. Terry McCarl (5) / 4. Sheldon Haudenschild (4) 5. Stevie Smith (8) 6. Tasker Phillips (3) 7. Ryan Roberts (6) 8. Lou Kennedy Jr. (9) 9. Lee Grosz (7) 10. Davey Heskin (12) 11. Gage Dorr (10) 12. David Kubart (13) 13. Jonathan Cornell (11) DNS – Justin Henderson

 

Garner and Swindell battled for the early lead in the 12-lapper.  McCarl used the low side of one and two to shoot by Haudenschild for the third and final transfer on lap five.  Swindell stormed to the lead on lap 11, but Garner shot back by on the last lap for the win.

 

B main two (started): 1. Brian Brown (2) 2. Josh Baughman (5) 3. Ian Madsen (1) / 4. Blake Hahn (3) 5. Billy Alley (7) 6. Tony Shilling (6) 7. Jason Danley (9) 8. Jack Dover (8) 9. Harli White (12) 10. John Klabunde 77 (4) 11. Stu Snyder (10) 12. Randy Hibbs (11) DNS – Tyler Drueke, Wade Nygaard

 

Brown led lap one, before Madsen rode by on lap two in a good battle.  Brown stormed back by for good on lap three.  Baughman was making the low side work and passed Madsen for second on lap four.

 

A main (started): 1. Wayne Johnson (6) 2. Danny Lasoski (12) 3. Dusty Zomer (1) 4. Jason Johnson (4) 5. Clint Garner (17) 6. Johnny Herrera (14) 7. Aaron Reutzel (16) 8. Jack Dover (24, pr.) 9. Seth Bergman (7) 10. Terry McCarl (21) 11. Josh Baughman (20) 12. Brandon Hanks (13) 13. Matt Covington (15) 14. Jeff Swindell (19) 15. Jason Martin (5) 16. Seth Brahmer (11) 17. Brian Brown (18) 18. Sam Hafertepe Jr. (9) 19. Jarrod Schneiderman (2) 20. Tony Bruce Jr. (10) 21. Brad Loyet (3) 22. Thomas Kennedy (8) 23. Ian Madsen (22) 24. Blake Hahn (23, pr.)

 

W. Johnson was locked in from Friday night and if he could sweep, he would win a $50,000 bonus.  Lap money saw each lap pay $50 for the leader, $30 for second and $20 for third to add to the purse.  The win was worth $5,000.  W. Johnson drew a six.  Zomer led Shcneiderman and W. Johnson jumped to third on the first lap.  Hahn jumped the cushion, tagged the wall and flipped hard on lap two.  Madsen also got into the wall.  Both retired.  W. Johnson shot by Schneiderman into second on the restart, but was passed by J. Johnson a lap later.  With 8 laps in the books, Loyet and T. Kennedy were running sixth and seventh when they made contact on the frontstretch and suffered too much damage to continue.  Zomer led J. Johnson, W. Johnson, Schneiderman, Bruce and a charging Brown.  Brown slid in front of Bruce on lap nine.  Bruce jumped the turn one cushion and got upside down, bringing another red.  Five laps later, Brown would suffer the same fate while running fourth.  Schneiderman also had issues and went pitside.  An open red was called.  Zomer led J. Johnson, W. Johnson, Lasoski and Herrera back to green.  W. Johnson worked on J. Johnson hitting the high side.  He would shoot by for second on lap 16.  Lasoski worked for third on lap 17.  W. Johnson hit the high side and pulled alongside Zomer on lap 22.  He shot by on lap 24, and held on to win the big cash.  Lasoski got by Zomer late in traffic for second.  Last year’s Fall Brawl sweeper, Dover, was the hard-charger.  Billy Alley won the ASCS-Midwest title.

Jon Stanbrough (3 rd car out to time) set quick time over the field at 20.064 seconds.  Dave Darland (6 th car out) was second quick, followed by Jerry Coons Jr. (8 th), Kevin Thomas Jr. (1 st), Brady Bacon (7 th), Chase Stockon (9 th), Robert Ballou (12 th), Tracy Hines (13 th), Justin Grant (5 th) and Chris Windom (10 th).  The track was fairly parched, especially compared to the previous night with the WoO.  It would have been a much different race for the WoO with this track.  Terry Babb slowed on his second lap and scratched for the night.

 

Heat one (started): 1. Robert Ballou 12 (4) 2. Jon Stanbrough 37RW (6) 3. CJ Leary 30 (2) 4. Chris Windom 11 (3) 5. Logan Jarrett 29 (7) 6. Kevin Thomas Jr. 9K (5) 7. Chad Boespflug 5 (1) DNS – Terry Babb 88

 

Heats ran 8 laps in distance.  The top five were eligible for the feature invert of six.  Leary led Ballou and Boespflug on lap one.  Ballou surged past Leary for the lead on lap two, while Stanbrough moved into third.  Stanbrough would ride the cushion around Leary to finish second.  Thomas missed the top five and a shot at the front row of the feature.

 

Heat two (started): 1. Bryan Clauson 20 (1) 2. Brady Bacon 69 (5) 3. Tracy Hines 4 (4) 4. Dave Darland 71P (6) 5. Brandon Mattox 28 (1) 6. Brady Short 11P (3) 7. Jarett Andretti 18 (7)

 

Mattox led Clauson and Bacon from row three on lap one.  Clauson took the point on the second go-around, while Bacon moved into second on lap three.   Late in the race, Hines and Darland traded third, with Hines taking command on lap six.

 

Heat three (started): 1. Jerry Coons Jr. 10E (6) 2. Shane Cottle 2E (3) 3. Hunter Schuerenberg 20N (1) 4. Chase Stockon 32 (5) 5. Jac Haudenschild 11x (2) 6. Justin Grant 40 (4) 7. Bill Rose 6 (7)

 

Schuerenberg led early over Cottle and Haudenschild.  Cottle used the low side to move to the point on lap two, while Coons followed him into second.  Coons would ride high with Cottle low to take the lead on lap three.  Cottle made a late surge for the lead, but fell short.  Haudenschild seemed a bit rusty without the wing, but grew stronger as the heat went on.

 

A main (started): 1. Brady Bacon (3) 2. Robert Ballou (1) 3. Brady Short (11) 4. Shane Cottle (12) 5. Chase Stockon (2) 6. Dave Darland (5) 7. Bryan Clauson (14) 8. Tracy Hines (8) 9. Jerry Coons Jr. (4) 10. Chris Windom (10) 11. Jon Stanbrough (6) 12. CJ Leary (13) 13. Kevin Thomas Jr. (7) 14. Justin Grant (9) 15. Hunter Schuerenberg (18) 16. Logan Jarrett (19) 17. Jarett Andretti (20) 18. Brandon Mattox (17) 19. Jac Haudenschild (15) 20. Chad Boespflug (16) 21. Bill Rose (21) DNS – Terry Babb.

 

The 30-lapper went non-stop.  Ballou led at the outset with Bacon in tow.  The pair would storm away from the rest of the field using the high side of the track.  Bacon would try the middle and low side of the track several times during the race.  Just past the halfway point, he pulled side by side with Ballou, but he would settle back into second.  Meanwhile, Stockon ran third most of the way.  Short was on the move from row six, as was Cottle.  Short used the low side of the track, while most of the leaders ran the cushion.  With just two laps to go, things started shaking.  Entering turn one, Ballou bobbled a bit, and Bacon shot into a narrow window to take the lead and hit the cushion going into one.  He would hold onto the win.  The lead pair was more than a half lap ahead of Short, who grabbed third on the last lap, followed by Cottle.

Terre Haute Action Track

Terre Haute, IN

WoO

34 cars

Jimmy Light had something break coming out of turn four in hot laps and slammed into the wall, getting upside down. He was done for the night. Bryan Clauson had a sour sounding engine in the Indy Race Parts machine in hot laps and time trials and scratched for the night. It was the WoO’s first appearance since 2006 at Terre Haute. The track had plenty of moisture and was rough, even in qualifying. The blade was brought out no less than three times during the night.

Joey Saldana (5th car out to time) set quick time at 16.777 seconds on the half-mile. Donny Schatz (22nd car out) was second quick, followed by Brad Sweet (31st), Cody Darrah (10th), Shane Stewart (26th), Kerry Madsen (8th), Steve Kinser (15th), Kraig Kinser (21st), David Gravel (14th) and Daryn Pittman (20th).

Heat one (started): 1. David Gravel 83 (2) 2. Rico Abreu 24 (1) 3. Joey Saldana 71m (4) 4. Shane Stewart 2 (3) 5. Derek Hagar 9w (6) / 6. Dave Blaney 3G (7) 7. Logan Schuchart 1s (5) 8. Kody Kinser 4K (8) DNS – Jimmy Light 23

Gravel torched the rest in this 8-lapper to earn a Dash spot. Due to track conditions, the heats played out mostly single-file after the first lap.

Heat two (started): 1. Kerry Madsen 29 (3) 2. Daryn Pittman 9 (2) 3. Donny Schatz 15 (4) 4. Danny Lasoski 33 (1) 5. Lucas Wolfe 5w (5) / 6. Tim Kaeding 59 (6) 7. Brad Greer 3B (8) 8. Danny Smith 4s (7)

Lasoski was penalized a row for jumping. That handed the pole to K. Madsen, who took off from there. Schatz pulled side by side with Pittman for second at one point, but didn’t have enough room to maneuver by. Smith exited early.

Heat three (started): 1. Brian Brown 21 (2) 2. Brad Sweet 49 (4) 3. Christopher Bell 53 (1) 4. Steve Kinser 11 (3) 5. Paul May 71mx (6) / 6. Greg Wilson w20 (5) 7. Jacob Allen 1a (8) 8. Robert Ballou 12 (7) DNS – Bryan Clauson 71

After a lengthy delay to fix the caution lights and another track blading, Brown led the distance in a mostly single-file affair.

Heat four (started): 1. Paul McMahan 51 (2) 2. Cody Darrah 4 (4) 3. Kraig Kinser 11K (3) 4. Jason Sides 7s (1) 5. Ian Madsen 18 (5) / 6. Randy Hannagan 11N (7) 7. Parker Price-Miller 9P (6) 8. Jacob Wilson 07 (8)

McMahan led early, while Darrah rode to the outside of Sides to take second in turns three and four. He was the first car to use a little higher line, and looked to be reeling in the leader for a possible pass when a caution for debris slowed things three laps in. McMahan chose the outside line in a double-file restart ahead of Darrah, Sides, K. Kinser, Madsen and Price-Miller. A late bid by Hannagan for the final transfer fell short.

Dash (started): 1. Donny Schatz (2) 2. Joey Saldana (1) 3. Brad Sweet (3) 4. Cody Darrah (4) 5. David Gravel (6) 6. Paul McMahan (8) 7. Brian Brown (7) 8. Kerry Madsen (5)

Schatz led the six-lap distance in a blur of a race. The track got faster as the night went on. In the feature, Schatz would actually turn laps faster than Mark Kinser’s 15 year old track record.

B main (started): 1. Logan Schuchart (1) 2. Tim Kaeding (3) 3. Danny Smith (6) 4. Greg Wilson (2) / 5. Parker Price-Miller (4) 6. Dave Blaney (5) 7. Randy Hannagan (8) 8. Kody Kinser (7) 9. Jacob Allen (9) 10. Brad Greer (10) DNS – Robert Ballou, Jacob Wilson, Bryan Clauson, Jimmy Light

Schuchart led the 12-lap distance. Smith jumped from fifth to third on the first lap before being over taken by Wilson. On lap four, Smith proved the track was widening, when he circled Wilson for third coming out of turn four.

A main (started): 1. Donny Schatz (1) 2. Joey Saldana (2) 3. Brian Brown (7) 4. Daryn Pittman (12) 5. Kerry Madsen (8) 6. Shane Stewart (9) 7. Steve Kinser (10) 8. Kraig Kinser (11) 9. Brad Sweet (3) 10. Jason Sides (16) 11. Rico Abreu (13) 12. Ian Madsen (20) 13. Christopher Bell (15) 14. Paul McMahan (6) 15. Paul May (23) 16. Derek Hagar (21) 17. Danny Lasoski (14) 18. Cody Darrah (4) 19. David Gravel (5) 20. Logan Schuchart (17) 21. Lucas Wolfe (18) 22. Tim Kaeding (22) 23. Danny Smith (24) 24. Greg Wilson (19)

Before the event, WoO officials decided to shorten the event to 25 laps from its scheduled 30, and to implement no double-file restarts. Before a lap could be completed, Sweet and McMahan tangled. Both made repairs and restarted at the tail. Schatz took off from the start and was really in a league of his own. Darrah followed in third until lap 14, when he suffered motor issues and stopped on the frontstretch. At the same time, Gravel, who had inherited the third spot, went pitside with a flat right rear. Now Schatz led Saldana, Brown, K. Madsen and Pittman up from 12th. Lasoski brought the last caution when he stopped on lap 17. A lap after the restart, Pittman grabbed fourth from K. Madsen. Schatz pulled away again to win for the second night in a row over Saldana and Brown. Brown broke a steering arm just after taking the checkers. A half lap earlier could have meant a destroyed racecar.

The track was tacky and rough after rains the previous day. Several wheelstands in hot laps. Kokomo never disappoints.

Cody Darrah (20th car to time) set quick time at 11.050 seconds, exactly one-tenth of a second off Sammy Swindell’s two year old record at the ¼-mile. Joey Saldana (35th car out) was second quick, followed by Brad Sweet (24th), Donny Schatz (7th), Daryn Pittman (13th), Shane Stewart (36th), Jac Haudenschild (25th), Rico Abreu (9th), Lucas Wolfe (19th) and Dale Blaney (34th). Quentin Blonde got up on one wheel and saved it in turn one. When he got back on it, the front rose again and he flipped. He was done for the night.

Heat one (started): 1. Kerry Madsen 29 (1) 2. Cody Darrah 4 (4) 3. Lucas Wolfe 5w (2) 4. Daryn Pittman 9 (3) 5. Steve Kinser 11 (5) / 6. Logan Schuchart 1s (8) 7. Kody Kinser 4K (7) 8. Mike Terry Jr. 85 (9) 9. Dusty Williams 26 (10) 10. Christopher Bell 53 (6)

K. Madsen led Wolfe and Pittman on the first of ten laps. Bell was cruising in sixth behind S. Kinser when the King came up the track to lap Williams. Bell attempted a pass on the high side, but was clipped by Kinser and went pitside. Madsen held onto the win and a Dash spot.

Heat two (started): 1. Dale Blaney 14K (2) 2. Bryan Clauson 71x (1) 3. Shane Stewart 2 (3) 4. Joey Saldana 71m (4) 5. Paul McMahan 51 (5) / 6. Brady Bacon 99 (6) 7. Kraig Kinser 11K (7) 8. Robert Ballou 12 (8) 9. Derek Hagar 9w (9) DNS – Quentin Blonde 5QB

Blaney dominated this one, winning going away. Clauson trailed the distance, while Stewart grabbed third from Saldana on lap five. Bacon appeared faster than McMahan, but couldn’t find a way by on a narrow track.

Heat three (started): 1. David Gravel 83 (1) 2. Tim Kaeding 59 (5) 3. Jac Haudenschild 71 (3) 4. Brad Sweet 49 (4) 5. Cale Thomas 91 (2) / 6. Dave Blaney 3G (6) 7. Wayne Johnson 77x (7) 8. Parker Price-Miller 9P (8) 9. Patrick Haynes 5H (9)

The first lap was a wild one. Sweet bicycled up turn two, dropping back to sixth. Kaeding went from fifth to second. Sweet fought back by W. Johnson who had grabbed fifth and Thomas for fourth by the checkers.

Heat four (started): 1. Donny Schatz 15 (4) 2. Sheldon Haudenschild 93 (2) 3. Rico Abreu 24 (3) 4. Gary Taylor 1st (5) 5. Jason Sides 7s (6) / 6. Danny Smith 4s (7) 7. Greg Wilson w20 (8) 8. Ian Madsen 18 (1) 9. Jacob Allen 1a (9)

Another wild start in this one. I. Madsen outdueled S. Haud side by side to lead lap one. The two hammered each other in turn two, with Madsen breaking a right rear shock. He restarted at the tail, while Allen retired. The restart saw S. Haud leading Schatz, Abreu, Taylor, and Smith. On lap four, Sides worked by Smith for the final transfer. The next lap, Schatz shot under S. Haud in turn four for the win.

Madsen led the 12-lapper early, followed by Bacon, Bell and Blaney. On lap three, Bacon used the low side to take the lead. Bell was on the move as well, moving into second on lap five. Dave Blaney was making his first start at Kokomo since 1996.

A main (started): 1. Donny Schatz (4) 2. Shane Stewart (9) 3. Dale Blaney (3) 4. David Gravel (2) 5. Kerry Madsen (1) 6. Rico Abreu (11) 7. Cody Darrah (7) 8. Paul McMahan (18) 9.

K. Madsen led Gravel and Schatz early in the 40-lapper. With two laps in, I. Madsen spun after contact with Thomas. It negated a Schatz pass of Gravel for second. On the restart, Thomas did a 360 spin. Once green, Gravel shot off the rough cushion to pass K. Madsen for the lead. Schatz also took second from Madsen at that point. With four laps in, Bacon got into the turn two wall and slowed. He would change a tire in the work area and return. Gravel took the inside line on the double-file restart, ahead of Schatz, K. Madsen, Sweet and Dale Blaney. One more lap was in the books when Dave Blaney retired with ignition issues. Dale had moved by Sweet for fourth. On the restart, Schatz passed Gravel for the lead. Wolfe came top a stop with 13 laps in to bring another caution. Schatz led Gravel, K. Madsen, Blaney and Sweet at that point. Blaney shot into third on the restart. Three laps later, S. Haud spun. On that restart, J. Haud rode the wall in two and got stuck in the fence. He was done, but not injured in his first night in the Indy Race Parts #71. Teams made adjustments under an open red. On lap 19, Sweet worked by Blaney for third. Five laps later, Sweet would jump the cushion and spin. It would prove to be the final slowdown. Schatz led Gravel, Blaney, Stewart and K. Madsen at the time. Stewart caught fire and grabbed third and then second on laps 31 and 32. He would gain on Schatz, but couldn’t quite get there. Sweet spun in front of the leaders at the checkers with no harm done. Abreu was also a late charger, banging the cushion on the way, while McMahan was the race’s hard-charger.

The Spoon never disappoints when it’s Tom Knowles Memorial time. The high banks again lent to great racing in both classes and crazy high-speed games of chicken for the midgets. Sean Buckley and MavTV are missing out on this one for sure!

Sprints

Heat one (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Parker Price-Miller 9P (1*) 2. Jim Moughan Jr. 1m (9*) 3. Joey Moughan 21x (6*) 4. AJ Bruns 2 (4) 5. Terry Babb 88 (7*) 6. Andy Baugh 6B (8) 7. Levi Curry 25 (5) 8. Tommy Rockwell 95 (3) 9. Zach Daum 5D (2)

Price-Miller led the 10-lap distance and won going away, but Jim Moughan was on the move from the tail. He’d take third after a lap three restart for Daum, who was suffering mechanical difficulties, and he moved into second coming for the white flag. Bruns was driving Scott Ritchhart’s #2 and you could throw a blanket over he and Joey Moughan most of the way.

Heat two (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Jimmy Hurley 35 (3*) 2. Jerrod Hull 12 (4*) 3. Robbie Standridge 99 (7*) 4. Ryan Bunton 7K (2) 5. Jake Blackhurst 25B (8*) 6. Seth Motsinger 44 (6) 7. Jeremy Standridge 10s (5) 8. Vinny Ward 82 (1)

Motsinger spun before a lap could be completed. On the second try, Ward was tagged from behind and spun as well. Hurley took the early lead and won going away. Hull moved by Bunton for second on lap two, and Standridge came from row four to take over third on lap three.

Heat three (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Rico Abreu 24 (8*) 2. Chris Urish 77u (5*) 3. Korey Weyant 99w (4*) 4. Logan Faucon 52F (6*) 5. Matt Harms 53H (1) 6. Trent Beckinger 75 (2) 7. Austin Brown 7 (7) 8. Russ Hall 83 (3)

Hall broke a rear axle, luckily before he was up to speed, and was done for the night in the Northrop car. Brown also came to a stop before a lap could be completed. Urish took the early lead over Harms and Abreu, who advanced from row three. Abreu moved into second on lap two, and Weyant to third. The caution flew on lap five when Brown got over the top of three and four. Weyant shot under Abreu on the restart, but two laps later, Rico stomred back into second. Coming for the white flag, he would fin his way around Urish for the win.

Heat four (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Danny Lasoski 33 (1*) 2. Paul Nienhiser 9 (6*) 3. Patrick Haynes 5H (7*) 4. Bret Tripplett 22 (8*) 5. Tyler Courtney 23c (5) 6. Rob Kubli 23K (2) 7. Ben Wagoner 84 (3) 8. Cory Bruns 17m (4)

Lasoski led the distance. One caution flew when Cory Bruns, who was in Joey Moughan’s 17m broke a front end on lap three. Nienhiser would restart third, and get by Wagoner for second on lap five. Haynes would surge from sixth to third after the restart.

Dash (started): 1. Rico Abreu (1) 2. Jim Moughan Jr. (2) 3. Jimmy Hurley (4) 4. Paul Nienhiser (3) 5. Danny Lasoski (6) 6. Parker Price-Miller (5)

Rico rode the rim to the 6-lap win. Moughan was cruising low as drivers checked out different parts of the wide high-banked 3/8 for the feature.

B main one (started): 1. AJ Bruns (1) 2. Andy Baugh (2) / 3. Trent Beckinger (4) 4. Zach Daum (7) 5. Matt Harms (3) 6. Austin Brown (5) 7. Jeremy Standridge (6) DNS – Cory Bruns, Russ Hall

Bruns led from start to finish in the 10-lapper. Daum showed some speed late, but his hole was dug too deep.

B main two (started): 1. Ryan Bunton (1) 2. Tyler Courtney (2) / 3. Ben Wagoner (6) 4. Seth Motsinger (3) 5. Tommy Rockwell (7) 6. Rob Kubli (4) 7. Levi Curry (5) DNS – Vinny Ward

Bunton and Courtney pulled away to earn the transfers.

A main (started): 1. Rico Abreu (1) 2. Jimmy Hurley (3) 3. Parker Price-Miller (6) 4. Jake Blackhurst (15) 5. Ryan Bunton (18) 6. Jim Moughan Jr. (2) 7. Danny Lasoski (5) 8. Chris Urish (7) 9. Robbie Standridge (8) 10. Joey Moughan (11) 11. Jerrod Hull (10) 12. Korey Weyant (13) 13. Tyler Courtney (20) 14. Bret Tripplett (12) 15. Andy Baugh (19) 16. Patrick Haynes (9) 17. Terry Babb (16) 18. Logan Faucon (14) 19. Paul Nienhiser (4) 20. AJ Bruns (17)

Haynes and Bruns contacted with Bruns suffering too much damage to continue before a lap could be completed. Abreu led Jim Moughan and Nienhiser on the first lap of the 25-lapper. Jim would take the lead and pull away a bit on lap two, using the middle of the track. Faucon came to a stop with five laps in the books. Nienhiser pulled off from third with motor issues. Jim Moughan led Rico, Price-Miller, Lasoski, and Hurley on the restart. One more lap was in the books before Blackhurst spun. On the ensuing restart, Lasoski shot up to third. Abreu went to work and got by Moughan for the lead on lap ten. Two laps later, Babb slowed and brought a caution. The yellow flag negated a Lasoski pass for second. Unfortunately for him, he did make the pass before the cone on the restart, and was sent to the tail. Hurley assumed third. Contact with another car sent Haynes spinning with 18 laps in bringing the final caution. Abreu led Jim Moughan, Hurley, Price-Miller and Urish on the restart. Using the low side of the track, Hurley worked by Moughan for second on lap 20. Price-Miller was pounding the upper-most confines and shot around Moughan for third on lap 21. Despite being faster than Hurley, who was washing up the track on the straights, he couldn’t grab second. It was Rico’s second MOWA win of the season.

Midgets

Heat one (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Darren Hagen 56 (4*) 2. Zach Daum 5D (3*) 3. Rico Abreu 97 (7*) 4. Terry Babb 88 (6*) 5. Dave Camfield Jr. 86c (1) 6. Andy Baugh 6B (5) 7. Jay Mounce 12J (2)

The stoutest midget head of the night saw Daum pound the cushion for the early lead in the 8-lapper over Hagen and Camfield Jr. Abreu started tail and was third by the second lap. Hagen and Daum proceeded to go to war, trading sliders and exchanging the lead three times, before Hagen took it for good on lap five.

Heat two (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Justin Peck 5x (1*) 2. Tyler Thomas 91T (2*) 3. Seth Motsinger 2 (4*) 4. Ryan Criswell 11R (5*) 5. Dave McKay 3D (3) 6. Shane Morgan 15m (6) DNS – Dave Camfield III 16c

Peck led the distance. The best race was for third between Motsinger, who grabbed in on lap three from Criswell. Camfield III jumped the ramp that is turn two in hot laps, flipping two full times, but landed on his wheels. He would return for the B.

Heat three (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Andrew Felker 11A (5*) 2. Spencer Bayston 39 (7*) 3. Dalton Camfield 87 (2*) 4. Nick Bailey 89 (4*) 5. Cole Wood 17w (6*) 6. Colten Cottle 5c (1) 7. Robbie Ray 3 (3)

Cottle led early. Ray took second from Bailey on lap two. Wood spun while running fourth with two laps in the books after tapping Bailey. Felker shot from fourth to second on the start. More contact with Bailey sent Wood spinning with five laps in. The restart saw Cottle leading Felker, Ray and Bayston, who moved up a spot on the restart. Yet another caution saw Ray come to a stop on the white flag lap. On the restart, Cottle blew the power plant. Felker assumed the lead and held on.

Heat four (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Tanner Thorson 67 (4*) 2. Austin Brown 7 (1*) 3. Parker Price-Miller 9P (6*) 4. Daniel Robinson 57D (2) 5. Jake Neuman 3N (5) 6. Matt Harms 53H (3)

Brown led Thorson and Robinson early. Price-Miller worked from sixth to third on lap two. Thorson took over the lead on lap three.

B main (started): 1. Daniel Robinson (1) 2. Dave Camfield Jr. (4) 3. Andy Baugh (6) 4. Jake Neuman (3) 5. Dave Camfield III (7) 6. Shane Morgan (5) 7. Dave McKay (2) / DNS – Robbie Ray, Jay Mounce, Colten Cottle, Matt Harms

Robinson led the distance in the 10-lapper. The only slowdown was a Morgan spin.

A main (started): 1. Zach Daum (8) 2. Rico Abreu (6) 3. Tyler Thomas (10) 4. Tanner Thorson (4) 5. Andrew Felker (1) 6. Justin Peck (5) 7. Terry Babb (13) 8. Seth Motsinger (12) 9. Andy Baugh (19) 10. Daniel Robinson (17) 11. Austin Brown (11) 12. Cole Wood (16) 13. Dalton Camfield (14) 14. Shane Morgan (22) 15. Nick Bailey (15) 16. Dave Camfield Jr. (18) 17. Jake Neuman (20) 18. Dave McKay (23) 19. Dave Camfield III (21) 20. Parker Price-Miller (7) 21. Darren Hagen (3) 22. Ryan Criswell (9) 23. Spencer Bayston (2)

Bayston led Thorson and Felker on lap one of the 30-lapper. Coming to the flagstand on the second lap, Thorson made contact with Bayston, flattening his left rear. There was too much damage to continue. The restart saw Thorson leading Felker, Abreu, Hagen and Thomas. Rico would move into second on lap five. Hagen was on the move as well, shooting by Felker into third on lap 9. A lap later, he would get sideways in turn four, and lose four spots. Wood would sping bringing caution. Thorson led Hagen, Felker, Daum, Thomas and Abreu back to green. At the halfway point, Wood would suffer a flat left rear. Thorson was trying to hold off Hagen at the time. Meanwhile, Daum, Felker and Abreu were dicing in small real estate behind them. Rico shot to third on the restart, and then made contact with Hagen, who got over the berm. Both went to the work area, and restarted at the tail, setting up another charge. Up front, Thorson led Daum, Felker, Thomas and Peck. Thomas shot to third on the start using the low side. Up front, Daum would work by Thorson for the lead on lap 21, and Peck moved by Thomas for third. A lap later, Brown spun bringing another caution. Peck continued his charge into second, and it looked like a shootout between he and Daum for the win. With five to go, however, Bailey flipped down the frontstretch. He would race on after landing on all fours. Peck continued to hound the leader, and it looked like the race would end that way again. Courtney spun right before the checkers, however. The two late cautions worked for Abreu, who shot around the rim to grab second. Thomas was running around the infield, grabbing third.

The track was wet enough that the 410’s took three flights of hot laps. Drawing a late number seemed to be an advantage in qualifying.

Heat one (started): 1. Chris Urish 77u (1) 2. Brian Brown 21 (4) 3. Paul Nienhiser 9 (2) 4. Jeremy Standridge 10s (6) 5. Dustin Selvage 99 (3) / 6. Trey Datweiler 23D (8) 7. Ryan Bunton 7K (5) 8. John Dines 31 (7) 9. Tommy Rockwell 95 (9)

Bunton grabbed the early lead in the 12-lapper over Mincer and Faucon. Datweiler would spin with three laps in, bringing the only caution. Bunton led Mincer, Faucon, Curry and Pohren on the restart. Pohren would shoot to third when the green flag fell as the low side came in. Faucon would work back by him on lap five. Beckinger would make the feature field as an alternate after Nienhiser was unable to start. Dines and Datweiler were added as promoter’s provisionals.

A main (started): 1. Brian Brown (2) 2. Joey Moughan (3) 3. Jerrod Hull (6) 4. AJ Bruns (10) 5. Ben Wagoner (1) 6. John Schulz (13) 7. Chris Urish (5) 8. Dustin Selvage (8) 9. Ryan Bunton (16) 10.

Pohren spun before a lap was completed after contact from another car. Wagoner led the first two laps of the 30-lapper before Pohren spun again with his front-end knocked out. Faucon also stopped and exited with rear-end issues. The restart saw Wagoner leading Brown, Moughan, Weyant and Urish. On lap four, Schneiderman shot under Urish for fifth from row five. On lap ten, Brown found his way under Wagoner in lapped traffic to take the lead. A lap later, Moughan followed him into second, and Schneiderman moved by Weyant for fourth. Schneiderman’s charge would continue as he took third from Wagoner on lap 14, and second from Moughan on lap 16. Blackhurst hit an infield tire and needed the hook with 16 laps down. Brown had two lapped cars between himself and Schneiderman, Moughan, Hull and Wagoner. The same would be true when Bunton spun shortly after the restart. On the green, Brown took off in clean air, while the lapped car of Datweiler got sideway and collected Schneiderman, who got upside down. The team would piece the car together and have him at the rear on the restart. He made a few laps before retiring. Brown took off again with Moughan and Hull in tow. That’s the way the race would end. Bruns moved up six spots to finish fourth, followed by Wagoner, Schulz with a late charge in his Jimmy Davies’ 360, Urish, Selvage, Bunton and Hall in his first run in the Northrop #83. Brown earned $3,000 for the win.

Heat one (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Tony Bruce Jr. 18 (2*) 2. Ian Madsen 18M (1*) 3. Brooke Tatnell 14T (3*) 4. Gregg Bakker 11x (5) 5. Tasker Phillips 7TAZ (4) 6. Austin Johnson 81 (7) 7. Chris Graf 20G (6) 8. Skylar Prochaska 35 (8)

Bruce slammed the door on Madsen going into one and never looked back. Prochaska came to a stop and exited at the halfway point. Bakker showed speed and won a good battle over Phillips for fourth. Heavy rains on Friday made for very heavy track conditions that saw a ton of speed and little passing all night.

Heat two (started, *qualified for feature): 1. DJ Brink 75 (1*) 2. Paige Polyak 19 (6*) 3. Kaley Gharst 7 (7*) 4. Brandon Halverson 32 (4) 5. Isaac Schreurs 612 (3) 6. Dusty Ballenger 2D (5) 7. Jeff Swindell 94 (2) DNS – Nick Lusk 29

N. Lusk flipped in hot laps and was a scratch for the night. Swindell led the distance until losing a motor with two to go. Polyak and Gharst were the benefactors, coming from the tail to grab the two highest totals in passing points on the night.

Heat three (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Mark Dobmeier 13 (1*) 2. Dusty Zomer 82 (3*) 3. Jason Johnson 41 (2) 4. Jody Rosenboom 14 (4) 5. Casey Heser 75c (6) 6. Blake Hahn 17 (5) 7. Derek Anderson 07 (7) DNS – Kenny Long 2ck

J. Johnson jumped the first two starts before being relegated to row two. He then jumped the third from the second row, but the race went green and he led the distance. The crowd was not pleased. Dobmeier’s owner, Dave Lunstra paid the tower a visit after the heat, probably reminding officials that his car was penalized two spots at Oskaloosa earlier this month. After some debate after the heats, Johnson was rightly penalized two spots.

Heat four (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Terry McCarl 6 (2*) 2. Johnny Herrera 45x (1*) 3. Seth Bergman 23 (4*) 4. Nate Laugen 18x (5) 5. Matt Juhl 09 (8*) 6. Justin Jacobsma 10 (6) 7. Bruce Anderson 64 (7) 8. Matt Wasmund 4w (3)

Wasmund came to a stop before a lap could be completed and was a scratch for the night. McCarl led the 8-lap distance in a mostly single-file affair.

Heat five (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Mark Toews 5T (2*) 2. Matt Covington 95 (4*) 3. Brian Brown 21 (3*) 4. Sam Hafertepe Jr. 15H (6*) 5. Brad Loyet o5 (7) 6. Derrik Lusk 93 (5) 7. Troy Manteufel 5m (1)

Toews shot out to an early lead with Covington in tow. Brown followed in third and that’s how they would run.

B main one (Started): 1. J. Johnson (1) 2. Laugen (2) 3. Halverson (3) / 4. A. Johnson (5) 5. Heser (4) 6. Graf (8) 7. Jacobsma (6) 8. Hahn (7) DNS – D. Anderson, J. Swindell, Wasmund, N. Lusk

J. Johnson never looked back and won the 12-lapper by twelve seconds.

B main two (started): 1. Loyet (2) 2. Bakker (1) 3. Phillips (4) / 4. Rosenboom (3) 5. Ballenger (6) 6. D. Lusk (7) 7. B. Anderson (8) 8. Prochaska (9) 9. Schreurs (5) DNS – Matnteufel, Long

Loyet led the distance in a single-file affair.

Dick Valentine Memorial (started): 1. A. Johnson (1) 2. Graf (5) 3. Rosenboom (2) 4. Heser (3) 5. Jacobsma (7) 6. Schreurs (8) 7. Ballenger (4) 8. B. Anderson (6)

The special event honors Valentine and includes the top eight non-qualifiers from the B. A. Johnson led the 8-lap distance and picked up $400. The race was $200 to start. After contact from another car, Ballenger flipped hard down the frontstretch. He was uninjured. B. Anderson also suffered front-end damage in the melee and was done.

A main (started): 1. Covington (2) 2. Gharst (1) 3. McCarl (3) 4. Bruce Jr. (6) 5. Toews (8) 6. Bergman (12) 7. Herrera (12) 8. Zomer (9) 9. Brown (16) 10. Tatnell (15) 11. Juhl (14) 12. J. Johnson (17) 13. Loyet (18) 14. Bakker (20) 15. Polyak (7) 16. Madsen (10) 17. Prochaska (25, prov.) 18. Halverson (21) 19. Brink (4) 20. Phillips (22) 21. Hahn (24, prov.) 22. D. Lusk (23, prov.) 23. Dobmeier (5) 24. Laugen (19) 25. Hafertepe Jr. (13) DNS – J. Swindell (prov.)

Hafertepe came to a stop and retired before a lap could be completed. Covington took an early lead over Gharst, McCarl and Dobmeier in the 30-lapper. With three laps down, Dobmeier looked to break something and go over the turn two berm. At the same time, Laugen came to a stop on the frontstretch, bringing a caution. On the restart, Covington led Gharst, McCarl, Bruce and Brink back to green. Polyak shot under Brink for fifth at that point. With seventeen laps down, however. She would have a wheel center break on the right rear and come to a stop. It appeared she was done, until Brink flipped in three and four before another lap could be completed. She would rejoin the field. Covington pulled away from Gharst on each restart. It looked like the last 13 would go green, before Madsen came to a stop with there to go. Covington would pull away again for his first National win of the year and $5,000.

 

 

Three Winners, Three Champions at Knoxville!

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, August 23, 2014 – In the end, the point leaders in each division held off the rest of the field, but it wasn’t easy. Ian Madsen drove to a strong fourth place finish in the 410 A main won by Mark Dobmeier to take that championship. Joe Beaver won the 360 driver title with a sixth place finish in a race won by Matt Moro. The BDS Motorsports #1 team claimed the 360 owner’s title. J Kinder needed a motor borrowed from the L&J Automotive #5J team to charge from 19th to fifth to claim the 305 championship. Dustin Clark won that feature.

In the 410 25-lap feature, Brian Brown shot out from the pole ahead of Dobmeier and Brooke Tatnell early on. On lap three, Tatnell got sideways in turn four, and Madsen made the move of the race evading him. Tatnell also recovered.

Brown sliced through traffic as the first nineteen laps went nonstop. Terry McCarl moved into third on lap four as the lead trio pulled away. With nineteen laps in the books, Bronson Maeschen got upside down on the frontstretch. When Glen Saville slowed to avoid him, Brown clipped him, causing front-end damage to his #21.

Dobmeier assumed the lead with McCarl in pursuit. Madsen was passed by Dusty Zomer for third, but held onto fourth with a left wing side panel collapse. He was followed by Craig Dollansky. Justin Henderson, Brown, Tatnell, Davey Heskin and Lynton Jeffrey rounded out the top ten.

Henderson set quick time on the night, and Danny Lasoski, Tasker Phillips and Maeschen won heats. Cole Wood flipped in his heat race, but was unhurt.

“It was a great racetrack,” said Dobmeier, who celebrated his thirteenth win here in Victory Lane. “There was a bottom, a top, and you could cut through the middle too. My hat’s off to the track prep guys. I was following Brian there in lapped traffic, and it’s too bad the red came out, because I think I was just getting in position and he was behind some cars. It was unfortunate he got into the wreck, but I will take the win any way I can get it.”

“It’s just unbelievable,” said Madsen of his championship shared with the Bret Nehring #18 team. “I’m just speechless right now. I haven’t taken a breath all night. It will be nice to take a breath and celebrate with the team. I can’t believe we pulled it off. I have to thank Bret Nehring, Matt Barbara, the whole crew and our partners.”

Before a lap could be completed in the 20-lap 360 feature, Russ Hall and Alan Ambers contacted, sending the latter upside down. Hall also suffered too much damage to continue. Matt Moro shot out to the lead from outside of row one, ahead of Tasker Phillips and Dylan Peterson. Four laps were in the books before Sawyer Phillips flipped on the backstretch. He was uninjured.

When the green flew again, Moro led Tasker Phillips, Peterson, Nate Van Haaften and Carson McCarl. McCarl used a slingshot move under Van Haaften and Peterson to grab third on the restart, while Billy Alley moved into fourth behind him.

Moro was steady out front and captured his eighth career 360 win ahead of Tasker Phillips, McCarl, Alley and Van Haaften. Joe Beaver came home sixth and won his first 360 title, and Peterson, Tony Shilling, Jon Agan and Jarrod Schneiderman rounded out the top ten. Henderson also set quick time in the 360 class, clinching the owner title for the BDS Motorsports #1 team. Shilling, Cody Ledger and Agan won heat races.

“We’ve had a terrible, terrible year,” said Moro in Victory Lane. “The car has been fast, but we’ve had stupid stuff going wrong. We’ve had new parts breaking. Everyone works really hard on this thing. I like lapped traffic. I feel like I’m on my game.”

“I didn’t want to leave any doubt on who the champion was this year,” said Beaver of his championship. “I knew enough cars dropped out that we had a good shot at it, so I went for it. The car was super-tight. We battled it the whole way. This feels great! We were consistent. Once we got the car figured out to go with the motor (Moyle supplied by Don Long). Once we got our qualifying down, we were able to move up in the points.”

Dustin Clark led lap one from his pole position, but it was Kevin Hetrick who took command of the 15-lap 305 feature early on. When Terri O’Connell slowed with three laps in the books, Hetrick led Clark, Mitchell Alexander, Mike Mayberry and Steve Breazeale.

J Kinder’s point lead over Breazeale was tenuous heading in, but he put on a charge in his borrowed power plant, and was already 12th (from 19th) by the third lap. After another caution for debris a lap later, the rest of the event went non-stop.

Kinder was ninth by lap six, and Stacey Alexander moved by Mitchell Alexander for third on lap seven. Clark found his way by Hetrick on lap nine, while Stacey Alexander followed him into second on lap eleven.

Clark would have to hold off Stacey Alexander on the last lap to grab his first ever Knoxville victory. Hetrick was third, followed by Mitchell Alexander and Kinder, who grabbed fifth on lap 13. Breazeale, Mayberry, Jeff Wilke, McKenna Haase and Mike Philben rounded out the top ten. Kinder posted quick time before losing his motor. Philben, Haase and Stacey Alexander were heat race winners.

“(Stacey Alexander) was all over me, wasn’t he?” said Clark in Victory Lane. “I could smell him. Man, we worked so hard to get here tonight. A lot of the crew couldn’t make it here tonight…my Dad and my best friend Pat made it happen. I can’t believe it!”

“I have to thank the Ball crew,” said Kinder of the L&J Automotive #5J team who lent him a motor. “I have to thank all the crews helping me. This motor ran great. We have to figure out what we’re going to do. This feels great! I can’t thank everyone enough. I’m in shock right now.”

Donny Schatz Nearly Perfect in Eighth Knoxville Nationals Title!

by Bryan Hulbert/Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, August 9, 2014 – For the eighth time, Donny Schatz leaves the Knoxville Raceway with the title of "Champion", taking the $150,000 win in the 54th annual FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores.

Taking off from the pole, Schatz led Shane Stewart into the first turns. Slowing on Lap 3, Brian Brown took advantage of the restart to begin his chase for second. Searching the racing surface, Brown took the runner-up spot on Lap 12.

Leading by 2.874 seconds at the Lap 25 break for fuel, the restart saw Schatz stalked by Brown as the green flew. Working the cushion, Brown kept pace, finally taking his shot at the lead on Lap 44. Taking the lead with a high-side pass exiting the second turn; Brown brought the entire crowd of the Knoxville Raceway to their feet with resounding cheers that quickly drowned out the sounds of engines.

Pulling to the bottom groove in turns three and four, Brown swapped his line the following lap, giving Schatz the chance to shoot the berm and retake the lead on Lap 45.

Asked about seeing Brown drive by him, Schatz replied, "Racing is all about making decisions, and I was just getting so slow around the bottom of one and two, I thought well; I could just keep the tires under me maybe no one's going to get that run. I just couldn't get the top going that well then it cleaned off and Brian [Brown] got by...went to the bottom...I tried to stay with him, and when he went to the top at the other end, I was able to get back by him. I know he's going to beat me one of these days. I hope it's no time soon, but he's a hell of a racer."

Finishing runner-up for the third consecutive year, Brown crossed 1.243 seconds behind the STP No. 15.

"I figured I had to go when I could. I kind of rode along as long as I could there and made my move," said Brown. "Once I made my move, I took his line away in the corner and thought okay, that was pretty good but I didn't want to go down there and miss it and went back to the top and gave him another shot but I'll tell you what, at least this year, we kept him honest."

Kerry Madsen took the podium in his eighth A-Feature appearance, posting his best finish in the FVP Knoxville Nationals, "We tried to get the top to work early, but I couldn't do it. The bottom was too good. We were coming there at the end, and when Brian passed Donny I thought, oh well good, then they started battling and started catching them and thought, I got half a shot at this, but then I started screwing up on the cushion and bouncing all over the place like everyone else was, but man, what a great run for us."

Craig Dollansky grabbed the fourth spot with Justin Henderson taking fifth after starting eighth.

Paul McMahan was sixth Terry McCarl seventh. Mark Dobmeier eighth, Joey Saldana ninth, and Kraig Kinser tenth.

Brad Sweet was the night's Hard Charger from twenty-third to thirteenth. Brian Brown's runner up finish clenched the Mr. Sprint Car Title.

Jimmy Light grabbed the win in the E-Feature. D-Feature honors went to Brad Loyet. The night's C-Feature was won by Dale Blaney after a very rough start that saw 11 drivers receiving damage. Thankfully, all drivers were unharmed. The night's B-Feature was won by Brooke Tatnell with Clint Garner making his first A-Feature in the FVP Knoxville Nationals. Brad Sweet from eleventh was third with Lee Jacobs taking the final transfer to the A-Feature.

Rookie of the Year honors went to Andy Gregg. Best Appearing Crew went to Wayne Johnson Racing and Best Appearing Car was given to the No. 1d driven by Justin Henderson.

Brown’s second place finish clinched the Jesse Hockett “Mr. Sprint Car Title”, and cemented his strong run during Cox Design

Daryn Pittman Pockets $10,000 in Speed Sport World Challenge!

by Bryan Hulbert/Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, August 9, 2014 – For the third time, Daryn Pittman found Victory Lane in the Speed Sport World Challenge with a late race pass on Tim Kaeding.

Coming from sixth, Pittman wasted little time getting to the runner-up spot. Chasing Tim Kaeding into traffic, Pittman closed the gap but would nearly see his afternoon end on Lap 7 with a slip exiting Turn 2 that nearly sent the Great Clips No. 9 into the wall. A quick recovery and Pittman was back in the mix as rubber came into play on the Knoxville surface.

"I'm just glad I didn't stuff it into the back straight-a-way fence. The track was tricky, and the sun came out just enough there with that long break that the track just cleaned off a laid rubber," said Pittman. "Hats off to the track crew. They had their work cut out for them all week with the weather, and to have a day show and not lay rubber until the last race; the whole program was a great race."

Tim Kaeding's runner-up finish was enough to guarantee the California driver a starting spot in Saturday's championship A-Feature.

Informed of his twenty-fifth starting spot, Kaeding reply was simply, "Nothing wrong with that....We snuck into the Kings Royal, we just snuck our way into the Nationals, and couldn't be happier."

Brad Sweet completed the podium in the Speed Sport World Challenge.

"Our car was pretty good there. We didn't get locked in but we gave "TK" a run for his money at the end," Said Sweet. "We sure tried hard and the guys have made a lot of improvements so we'll start mid-pack in the "B" this afternoon."

Ian Madsen had his hands full holding onto fourth as Donny Schatz stalked the No. 55 in the closing laps. The defending FVP Knoxville Nationals Champion made up the top-five.

Terry McCarl was sixth, Brooke Tatnell seventh, David Gravel eighth, Paul McMahan ninth, and Dale Blaney tenth.

The finale of the 54th running of the FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Store will be Saturday, August 9 with action kicking off at 7:15 P.M. (CT). For complete news, updates, and information log onto http://www.knoxvilleraceway.com .

Engine Woes Cant Stop Danny Lasoski at Knoxville!

by Bryan Hulbert/Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, August 9, 2014 – The Friday Non-Qualifier program finally found its way to the Knoxville Raceway on Saturday afternoon with 48 drivers checking in and Danny Lasoski earning his 101st victory at the famed half-mile.

Suffering engine problems after taking the checkered flag in his Heat Race, the crew for the No. 33 was able to complete repairs to get Lasoski out for the A-Feature, where "The Dude" gridded the field seventh.

"It's a credit to my whole team. Mark Burch leads my team with Cody and Asa and I'm thankful for Paul Kistler for coming over and getting that thing fixed up. That just goes to show, this team never quits," commented Lasoski about overcoming a potential early ending to the 54th FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Store.

Moving to third on Lap 6, Lasoski watched as Jack Dover and Steve Kinser traded the top spot. Moving to slower traffic by the sixth round, the top three tightened with the chance for the lead coming on Lap 11. Moving off Turn 2, Lasoski found Dover and Kinser held up by back markers. Taking his familiar low line, Lasoski picked off the pair for the race lead exiting the fourth turn; opening his advantage to a staggering 8.568 seconds at the checkered flag.

Jack Dover had slipped to third, but was able to take second coming to the checkered flag as Jac Haudenschild saw his engine expire in a cloud of smoke.

Commenting on the pass by Lasoski, Dover revealed that he too had problems under the bonnet of the No. 53, "Danny's always good on the bottom. Before the race, I saw him trying to pack the bottom so I figured he'd be there. My car was pretty good anywhere I wanted to go, then there at the end it started overheating, and we lost a little power."

Despite the chokingly thick cloud of smoke from the No. 9w, Haudenschild was able to coast across the line for third, "We lost the motor right there at the end, so that's bad news, but we were a little better there in that feature so hopefully we'll get better in the next one."

After contact with the wall in the mid-point of the race, Steve Kinser was able to hold on for fourth with Seth Brahmer taking fifth.

Tony Bruce, Jr. crossed sixth with Chad Kemenah seventh from eleventh. Brandon Wimmer crossed eighth with Danny Holtgraver ninth. Dusty Zomer moved up two to complete the top-ten and become the last car to lock himself into tonight’s C main. The remainder of the competitor will line up according to their finishes in tonight’s E and D mains.

Shane Stewart Edges Kraig Kinser for Knoxville Prelim Victory!

by Bryan Hulbert/Bill Wright


KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, August 8, 2014 – The long wait by fans for the races originally scheduled for Wednesday night was well worth it as Shane Stewart worked past Kraig Kinser on the final lap to claim the Racingjunk.com Qualifying Night victory on Friday night of the 54th running of the FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores.

"Man, my car was just so good from the get-go," said Stewart of his Larson/Marks No. 2. "These races are pretty short, so you can't really bide your time like you do on Saturday; especially with Dollansky, and of course the No. 15. Everyone knows how darn good he is here."

Pocketing $12,000, the win counts as Stewart's sixth Knoxville Raceway triumph.

Taking the lead from the Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 11k on the white flag lap by 0.005 seconds, Shane opened his advantage to 0.750 seconds at the checkered flag.

"I honestly didn't think he was going to leave the bottom open for me like that. He ran a great race, and sometimes when you're leading, it's just hard to know where to go," said Stewart. "My car, once I got to the bottom, stuck really well so I just can't thank my guys enough."

Working into the top five on the opening lap, Stewart gave chase as Mark Dobmeier and Kraig Kinser battled for the lead with the No. 13 leading the first two rounds before giving up the point to Kinser with a low-line pass exiting turn-four as the caution waved.

Underway, leaders hit slower traffic by the tenth round with Kinser holding just under a second advantage as the race from second through fourth came into focus with Stewart having to hold off Donny Schatz for third before the caution waved on Lap 12 for Jac Haudenschild.

Trying for second, Stewart was quickly joined by Schatz to make it a three way race for the runner up spot. Distancing away from the STP No. 15, the race for second was close as Stewart and Dobmeier banged wheels with the No. 2 taking the runner-up spot.

Slowing on Lap 22 for Joshua Hodges, Shane Stewart was completely focused on Kinser at the green.

Coming to the tip of the green, Stewart swung high into turns one and two. Even for a moment, Kinser powered back to the lead, moving up the track entering three as Stewart seized the chance and stuck the berm to grab the win.

"We have some great points, and I hope I have a better finish than last year," said Stewart. Asked about the track, Shane replied, "The track stayed pretty good all night. I don't really see it being this good on Saturday, but if you were patient enough, you could run the bottom with a little bit of speed; and if it was free enough. It had to be free to run all the way around."

Kraig Kinser's runner-up finish put the MVT No. 41 ninth in Saturday's A-Feature.

"I knew the laps were counting down. I didn't know it was actually down to three until after the yellow fell," commented Kinser when asked about the final restart. "When I got into lapped traffic, I was rolling pretty good around them, but I just got a little free in the last handful of laps. I just made a bad choice going down the back straight-a-way and thought I heard Shane coming on the top and just didn't really know where to run because the car felt good everywhere."

After battling for the lead early on, Mark Dobmeier completed the podium; having to hold off Schatz in the closing laps, "You know I hear he's pretty good here and that last yellow kind of saved us. He actually got underneath us, but the yellow came out and we got out spot back. We were running hard the entire race, I just gave up the bottom too quick, and Kraig took it over and then I stayed on the top too long, but overall it's a great run for our team."

Donny Schatz crossed fourth from seventh with David Gravel slipping back one for fifth.

Craig Dollansky was sixth with Justin Henderson seventh. Brooke Tatnell came to eighth from twelfth with Lee Jacobs ninth. Danny Dietrich came from thirteenth to make up the top-ten.

After two qualifying nights, Donny Schatz has earned the pole in Saturday's A-Feature with 492 points. Shane Stewart will start second with 491 points. Kerry Madsen tied but with Stewart's win, Madsen will start third with Brian Brown fourth at 485 and Paul McMahan fifth at 484 points.

Saturday will begin with the qualifier originally slated for Friday night with Hot Laps beginning at 11:00 A.M. (CT).

Brown Continues Sprintweek Dominance on Night one of Knoxville Nationals!

by Bryan Hulbert/Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, August 7, 2014 – After rains washed out Wednesday night at the Knoxville Raceway, the skies finally gave a sigh of relief as Thursday's Lucas Oil Qualifying Night opened up the 54th running of the FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Store with Brian Brown scoring his third victory of the week during Southern Iowa Sprintweek.

In Victory Lane, Brown explained that he was running out of tear-offs and was signaling to his crew on a Lap 19 red, "Their answer was let's just get the lead, and not worry about the tear-offs."

Going after Sam Hafertepe, Jr. for the lead on the restart, Brown had to re-think his approach after nearly making contact with the Lone Star Speedway No. 15h, "I guess I'm getting a little bit smarter in my old age," joked Brown.

"The car was pretty good, we weren't great...probably not as good as we've been...but we were able to maneuver there on that restart. I got a good run on Sam [Hafertepe] and was going to try and slide him, and thought why not try and stick it, and I did, but then he kind of chopped me so I rolled out of it and said well--I guess I'll just run second--but then I got a pretty good run and stuck it there on the bottom."

Gridding the FVP / Casey's General Store No. 21 fifth, Brown began working through a torrid battle from second through fifth. Moving to third on Lap 16, Brown gave chase as Sam Hafertepe, Jr. worked on running down Jeff Swindell for the lead.

Setting a blistering pace through slower traffic, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. grabbed the lead on Lap 14 with Brown working past Swindell for second five laps later.

Rolling to the red on Lap 19 for the No. 71 of Kevin Swindell, Brown worked low on Hafertepe on Lap 20, but would have to wait until the following revolution to grab the point for his twenty-ninth Knoxville Raceway triumph; putting the No. 21 second in the week's standings with 485 points.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. posted a runner-up finish to put himself fifth in the overall standings going into Saturday night with 457 points.

"You never want to see a yellow flag with the No. 21 behind you for sure," said Hafertepe of the restart with six laps to go. "We were getting through traffic really awesome, and felt like we were really gapping ourselves just hitting the bottom really good, and on the restart, I just said...You know what...I'm just going to make these guys drive underneath me. It was pretty hard to hit down there, and if anyone could hit it, it's Brown, and thought we were going to have enough momentum to make him stay on the outside and maybe hold him off. I chopped him one time, and thought about chopping him again, but he had such a good run coming off the bottom; I didn't want to lose a couple more spots."

Kerry Madsen posted his best preliminary night finish to complete the night's podium; getting around Jeff Swindell on the restart as the No. 94 began slowing in the closing laps. Madsen's third place finish effectively positioned the No. 29 atop the points with 491.

"We got great points, and should have a fairly good starting position on Saturday night. We just had a great night," commented Madsen. "We're having a little fun, not really taking anything too serious, and just enjoy having a good night"

Terry McCarl from sixth gabbed fourth with Bryan Clauson slipping to round out the top-five.

Paul McMahan was sixth with Jason Johnson seventh from thirteenth. Joey Saldana from the night's B-Feature came from twenty-second to eighth as the night's Hard Charger. Clint Garner and Jon Agan completed the top-ten.

Thursday night saw 52 drivers drawing in to take time. Paul McMahan set the fast time at 14.633 seconds. Five Heat Races went to Bill Balog, Jon Agan, Jack Dover, Ian Madsen, and Kevin Swindell. C-Feature action was won by Dustin Selvage with the B-Feature topped by Cody Darrah.

Kerry Madsen leads the points with 491 markers. Brian Brown with 485, Paul McMahan at 484, Terry McCarl with 481, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. at 457 make the top-five point getters after the first night of competition.

Drivers originally scheduled to run Wednesday night will get their chance to qualify on Friday, August 9 with racing getting underway 7:15 P.M. (CT). For more information, log on to www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com !

Brian Brown Repeats as Front Row Challenge Champion!

by Bill Wright

Oskaloosa, IA, August 4, 2014 – Brian Brown became the sixth driver to repeat as Musco Lighting/Casey’s General Stores Front Row Challenge presented by Don Long’s Searsboro Telephone Company champion with his victory in the 19th edition of the race Monday night at the Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa. The Grain Valley, Missouri driver joined Tyler Walker, Jeff Shepard, Lance Dewease, Daryn Pittman and Sammy Swindell (3) as a multi-time champ on the half-mile with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Series.

$50,000 1999 champion, Jac Haudenschild, paced the field early in the main event from his pole position ahead of Russ Hall and Wayne Johnson. Brown had moved into fourth by lap four. With six laps completed, Randy Hannagan came to a stop in turn one, bringing out the caution. Haudenschild led Hall, Johnson, Brown and Tony Bruce Jr. back to green flag racing.

On the next lap, Brown moved by Johnson for third, and on lap nine he drove around Hall for second. Haudenschild set a torrid pace as the lead pair hit lapped traffic three laps later. On lap 15, Johnny Herrera slowed in front of the leader, giving Brown an opportunity for the lead that he would capitalize on.

The last half of the race, Brown pulled away, lapping up to the eighth place in a dominating performance. “It’s not often you pass Haud in a higher lane than he is,” said Brown in Victory Lane. “He got caught behind a slower car and I was able to get by. I want to thank the whole team. I want to thank Tony Stewart…he was kind of here helping all night. He’s been watching ‘the Cushion’ the last couple of nights and he is sharp. It’s an honor to call him my friend, and an honor to have him on the team, if it’s only for a night.”

Stewart addressed the crowd after the heat races to a large round of applause.

Haudenschild followed Brown to the line ahead of Hall, Seth Bergman and Sam Hafertepe Jr. Mark Dobmeier, Wayne Johnson, Christopher Bell, Brad Loyet and Blake Hahn rounded out the top ten.

Loyet took the Front Row Challenge after drawing the pole in a redraw. Due to possible inclement weather, the TK Concrete Keith Hutton Memorial “King of the Hill” match races were scrapped and the redraw was conducted. Loyet received a $1,500 driver’s suit from Hinchman Racewear for taking the challenge. Promoter Terry McCarl also put up $1,000 for Loyet’s top ten run, and he also received an HRP top wing for his ninth place finish.

Seth Bergman banked a HRP nose wing for winning Sea Foam heat race one. Bill Balog received Schoenfeld Headers for taking Tasos’ Steak House heat two. Wayne Johnson received a Vortex nose wing for winning Ostrich Racing Engines heat three. Loyet won a $500 gift certificate from Brown & Miller Racing Solutions for winning heat four, and Brown took home a Vortex nose wing for winning heat five. Josh Baughman and Trey Starks won the B mains.

Hall took home a $300 bonus from Searsboro Telephone Company as the highest finishing Knoxville 360 regular. Tyler Drueke also banked $300 from the Butler County Speedway for being the highest finishing Nebraska 360 Sprint driver. Tony Shilling took home $200 for the highest finishing Sprint Invaders Association driver.

Cody Ledger, who flipped out of the park in turn two during the first heat race, received John Lemon’s $100 Hard Luck Award. He was uninjured. Hafertepe won a KSE Steering Pump as the hard-charger, while Roger Hall, crew chief for his son Russ, won Mechanic of the Race, and a 3/8 cordless 18-volt impact set courtesy of Des Moines area Snap-On Tools dealers.

Ian Madsen Victorious in 3rd Annual Capitani Classic at Knoxville!

by Bryan Hulbert/Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, August 3, 2014 – The third annual Capitani Classic found its third winner, and first from Australia as Ian Madsen led start-to-finish for his sixth win of the season, and fifth overall at the Knoxville Raceway.

Rolling from the pole, Madsen had to reclaim an early Justin Henderson lead and outrun his brother, Kerry Madsen. Asked about starting on the pole, Madsen replied, "I never imagined it in this world. I was so angry after qualifying; I thought we had messed up a good chance at having a really good night. I couldn't believe it when I found out I was on the front row."

Henderson grabbed the early lead for a moment entering the third turn. Giving just enough room to maneuver, Ian Madsen stuck the cushion to squeeze between Henderson and the wall exiting turn four.

Finding slower traffic by the tenth round, Madsen held a constant half straight-a-way lead as the race from second through fifth was anyone's game.

Battling with Justin Henderson and Kerry Madsen for several laps, Davey Heskin's car seemed to get better with time as the No. 56 found second on Lap 12. Still battling around with Kevin Swindell and Brian Brown joining the mix, the group began running down Ian Madsen who worked into heavier slower traffic before the caution flew with five laps to run as Kevin Swindell slapped the wall in turn two; ending the defending champions bid for three consecutive podium finishes.

Working into third before the caution, Brian Brown shot to the runner spot on the restart. Taking off after Madsen, the opportunity would never present itself as Ian Madsen ran to his first Capitani Classic victory.

Brian Brown from eighth was second with Kerry Madsen coming back to third after falling as far back as sixth. Davey Heskin ended up fourth with Justin Henderson making up the top five. Brad Sweet, Danny Lasoski, Daryn Pittman, hard-charger Shane Stewart and Jason Johnson rounded out the top ten. Bronson Maeschen, who won the inaugural Capitani Classic placed eleventh.

Randy Hannagan set quick time over the 71-car field, and grabbed the first of two B mains. Heskin, Paul McMahan, Henderson, Lynton Jeffrey, Tony Bruce Jr. and Jason Johnson won the heats. Craig Dollansky won the second B main.

Ian Madsen’s second win in a row in Knoxville Championship Cup Series action has him 88 points ahead of Henderson, 104 points in front of Terry McCarl and 114 points ahead of Brian Brown heading into the August 23 Season Championship Night here.

Finally! Brian Brown wins the Arnold Motor Supply Knoxville 360 Nationals!

by Bryan Hulbert/Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, August 2, 2014 –

 A loud scream of satisfaction echoed across the grounds of the Knoxville Raceway as Brian Brown finally marked the Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals off his bucket list in his fifteenth attempt at the $10,000 to win event.

Brown's fifteenth 360cid Sprint Car victory at the Knoxville Raceway, the FVP No. 21 led start-to-finish in the 25 lap championship event.

"Man this feels good. I'm just thankful for everybody on this team," said Brown. "I'm almost out of breath, but this one's pretty cool."

Asked about having to change his line through traffic, Brown replied, "The car felt good up there the whole feature. Believe or not, I didn't want to lap anybody. I just didn't want to get off it. That Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps Scoreboard was pretty handy. I saw where Sam [Hafertepe] got by Sammy [Swindell] but didn't know where he was running once he got up there but here we are."

Leading by over two seconds at the first caution on Lap 7 for Kevin Swindell, Brown opened up his advantage again as Joe Beaver and Sammy Swindell swapped the runner-up spot.

Slow again on Lap 9 for the spun No. 82 Bronson Maeschen, the restart saw Sam Hafertepe, Jr. taking third and going to work on Swindell for second. Taking the spot on Lap 11, Hafertepe was never able to make up the two second disadvantage and Brown streaked through lapped traffic for the win.

Bettering his 2011 finish of eleventh, Hafertepe felt good about his performance in the 360 Nationals, "We had an awesome car there but I really, would have liked a caution there at the end just to see if we could have done anything with him," said Hafertepe. "I don't think many people knew we were running the bottom of three and four and that's where we were really making up a lot of time. I just felt like if I could have had a shot at him....not sure I could have passed him....but would have liked the opportunity."

Sammy Swindell posted his second podium of the weekend with a third place finish; holding off Davey Heskin in the closing laps, who ended up losing an engine.

"Our car was just too tight for that curb out there," commented Swindell. "I messed up a couple times. One time I got the right-front wheel up over it and that really slowed me down so I ended up letting Sam get through there, and let Davey catch up so I just backed it down to where I could make consistent laps."

Mark Dobmeier came from tenth to grab fourth with Tim Shaffer taking fifth after starting fourteenth.

Jason Johnson ran up as high as fourth but ended up crossing sixth. Joe Beaver slipped from the front row to finish seventh. Terry McCarl stormed from twentieth to eighth to earn the title of Hard Charger with Jonathan Cornell ninth. Danny Lasoski clawed from twenty-first to finish tenth.

The night's E-Feature was won by Tyler Drueke. D-Feature honors went to Johnny Herrera with Dustin Selvage taking the C-Feature win. Danny Lasoski took the win in the B-Feature. Jac Haudenschild moved through the most features in the Alphabet, coming from the E-Main to the C-Main where he finished fifteenth.

The highest finishing Rookie was Bill Balog who placed eleventh in the B-Feature.

Kline Grabs Second 305 Feature!

Rookie Devin Kline grabbed his second 305 feature of his career and the year here at the Knoxville Raceway. Corey Kautz got the feature off to a bumpy start after flipping in turn one when the green flag fell. He was uninjured.

Matthew Stelzer led Kevin Hetrick and Mike Mayberry early on in the 15-lap event. Stacey Alexander was on the move, however, moving into third on lap two and into the runner-up spot a circuit later.

By lap five, Alexander had ridden the cushion by Stelzer to take the lead. When Steve Breazeale spun on lap ten, Alexander led Stelzer, J Kinder, Kline and Kevin Hetrick.

Kline used the restart to his advantage, disposing of both Kinder and Stelzer to move into second. He would take the lead on lap twelve, and hold off Alexander on a lap 12 restart to win. The caution came for Stelzer, who went up in smoke.

Alexander followed Kline to the line. Kinder held the show position, ahead of Hetrick and Michael Philben. McKenna Haase, Breazeale, Jeff Wilke, Keoni Texeira and Kade Higday rounded out the top ten. Kline set quick time on the night, while Kinder, Mayberry and Texeira claimed heat races.

“These last two weeks, after winning the first one…it’s been a dream,” said Kline in Victory Lane. “It’s just awesome. This win is for my uncle Todd, who passed away a couple months ago. Tonight is his birthday. I was just going to go where they weren’t. The car was perfect. The guys did great with it. I have the easy job.”

Join us tomorrow night, August 3, for the 3rd Annual Capitani Classic here at the Knoxville Raceway! For more information, visit www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com !

Sammy Swindell Swings Into Knoxville Victory Lane!

by Bryan Hulbert/Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, August 1, 2014 – For the fourth time in his career, Sammy Swindell visited Victory Lane in 360cid competition at the Knoxville Raceway; winning night two of the 24th annual Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals with a borrowed Al Parker Racing Engine under the hood.

Challenged in the closing laps by the Sioux Falls Ford No. 13, Mark Dobmeier ran the cushion to pull even with Swindell.

"When you're out front, you don't really know," said Swindell of the race for the lead. "They said Brown was running the bottom pretty good and I made some good runs there but I was just kind of conserving my tires there early and watching Dobmeier so as long as I could keep pace with him, I wasn't too worried."

Chasing Dobmeier the first eight rounds, Swindell shot from fourth to the runner up spot on the second lap. Working the low groove on the Knoxville Raceway, Swindell took the lead on the ninth round; following a restart after Alan Ambers and Jack Dover made hard contact in turns one and two. Ambers was taken to the hospital for observation, Dover was unharmed.

Slowed for the final time with six laps to run, Dobmeier stayed committed to the cushion with the battle side by side going into the final two laps, but giving Swindell too much room is all it took for the Big Game Tree Stands No. 1s to take the line and the win.

"We were running at a blistering pace at the front there but had those yellow flags to bunch us up. I think I still had a faster car. I was able to come around the top and show him, and I think I could have done it earlier, but wanted to wait until I had a spot where I could just get it, and keep it, but I showed him a little too soon and he took my line away," said Dobmeier of his attempts to take the lead in the closing laps.

Brian Brown came to third from eighth. Changing gears under the Lap 8 red, Brown was happy but felt he had a problem with tires on the restart. "It was really like my Right Rear Tire just didn't go after that red and when those guy started moving around out there and kinda showed Sammy where to go on the track, I just ended up running third so we'll figure it out and hopefully come back tomorrow and get a couple spots better."

Ian Madsen from ninth finished fourth with Bronson Maeschen slipping from the front row to complete the top five.

Terry McCarl came from fourteenth to sixth with Wayne Johnson following from fifteenth to seventh. Dusty Zomer was the night's Hard Charger from twentieth to eighth with Tasker Phillips ninth, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. finishing tenth.

Friday night saw 56 drivers timing in for a weekend total of 103 drivers. Five Heat Races went Brian Brown, Bill Balog, Robbie Stillwaggon, Terry McCarl, and Wayne Johnson. The night's C-Feature was won by Chase Johnson. B-Feature victory went to Seth Brahmer.

Brian Brown was the night's quick time at 16.488 seconds. The Heat Race win along with a third in the A-Feature puts Brown as the high point driver going into Saturday with 496 points. Joe Beaver will join Brown on the front row with 491 points. Sammy Swindell with 478, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. with 477, and Tony Bruce, Jr. with 476 made up the top five point earners after two nights.

The 24th annual Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals concludes on Saturday, August 2 with Hot Laps getting underway at 6:45 P.M. (CT). 305 Sprint cars will also compete. For continued updates, log onto http://www.ascsracing.com and http://www.knoxvilleraceway.com .

Heskin Holds on for 360 Nationals Prelim Victory!

Bryan Hulbert/Bill Wright - KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, July 31, 2014 – After several small rain delays, the 24th annual Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals kicked off Thursday night with Davey Heskin taking his first 360cid Sprint Car victory at the Knoxville Raceway over the hard charging Jason Johnson.

"It was a fast track tonight, we were just balls to the wall out there," said a nearly breathless Davey Heskin in Victory Lane. "We've had a mediocre season so far. I feel like so to park it here…even on a prelim night…it's really special."

Jumping to the lead on the start, Heskin found the tail of the field on Lap 8.

Moving to second on Lap 6, traffic allowed Jason Johnson to close the gap on Heskin. Traffic would play into the hands of the Minnesota veteran, as all roads to the No. 56 were blocked before the caution waved on Lap 11 for the stalled No. 29 of Russ Hall.

Having to play out the restart twice due to debris, Johnson stayed close to challenge for the lead but would slowly watch the Deluxe Crates No. 56 begin to pull away.

Working again amongst the back markers in the closing laps, Jason Johnson would seize the opportunity to strike. Taking the white flag, the Stenhouse, Jr. Racing / Curb Agajanian Performance Group No. 41 made the bid for the lead, but would come up short as Davey Heskin grabbed the win.

"I needed lapped traffic for sure," commented second finishing Jason Johnson. "He left the door open for me on the white flag lap; but the driver missed the line."

Tony Bruce, Jr. rebounded to finish third after a test run this past Saturday night that resulted in a fifteenth place finish. Current Knoxville Raceway 360cid Sprint Car point's leader, Joe Beaver, finished fourth from eighth with Lee Grosz crossing fifth.

Casey Friedrichsen stated on the pole but slipped to finish sixth. Jamie Ball came from tenth to seventh with Kevin Swindell from twelfth to eighth. Brady Bacon crossed ninth with Dustin Selvage from nineteenth to finish tenth as the night's Hard Charger.

Thursday night's opener had 47 drivers draw in. Five Heat Races saw Kevin Swindell, Randi Miller, Jason Johnson, Cole Wood, and Ryan Roberts earning wins. The night's C-Main was scrapped and remaining drivers moved to the B-Main with Nate Van Haaften winning.

Qualifying saw Joe Beaver fastest at 15.906 seconds. Beaver also emerged as the top point getter with 491 points. He was followed by Bruce (476), Johnson (474), Heskin (471) and Grosz (467).

Night two of the 24th Arnold Motor Supply 360 Nationals begins at 7:15 P.M. (CST) with Qualifying on Friday, August 1. For continued updates and results from the Arnold Motor Supply log onto http://www.ascsracing.com and http://www.knoxvilleraceway.com.

Ian Madsen Holds Off Field in Marathon at Knoxville!

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, July 26, 2014 – Ian Madsen was victorious for the second time this season and the fourth time in his career at the Knoxville Raceway on Saturday night in the 410 feature. A roller coaster A main saw just fifteen competitors cross the checkers at the finish. In the 360 class, Justin Henderson won for the second time this season, padding the BDS Motorsports #1 owner’s point lead in that class.

Before a lap could be completed in the 410 A main, Austen Wheatley flipped after contact from another car. Danny Lasoski spun to avoid the incident. Wheatley was o.k., and Lasoski restarted at the tail.

On the complete restart of the 20-lapper, Dusty Zomer took command from the pole, with Madsen and Mark Dobmeier in tow. With just a lap in the books, Cole Wood flipped hard in turn one. He was also uninjured. After the race went green again, Madsen found his way by Zomer on lap three to take the point.

Brian Brown was on the move as well, going from eighth to fifth on lap one, and taking fourth from Dobmeier on lap five. Madsen and Zomer traded the lead briefly at the halfway point, with Madsen pulling away. On lap fourteen, Brown passed Dobmeier for third and set his sights on the leaders.

Point leader, Terry McCarl, who had to work his way through the B, stalled with motor problems with fifteen laps in the books. Clint Garner, who was running seventh, spun to avoid him and had to restart at the tail. Madsen led Zomer, Brown, Dobmeier and Bronson Maeschen back to green flag racing. Brown made quick work of Zomer to move into second.

Two laps later, a vicious three-car crash ensued involving Lynton Jeffrey, Jon Agan and Dakota Hendrickson. All three climbed from their machines. Brown slid in front of Madsen when the green replaced the red, but surrendered the lead down the backstretch. When he tried to enter under Madsen in turn three, he caught the berm, made contact with the leader and launched straight into the fence. He too, walked away.

That would prove to be the final stoppage of the event. Zomer shot in front of Madsen in turns one and two when the green flew, but Madsen ducked back under to pull away for a win worth $3,000 to the Nehring #18 team. Zomer followed in second, ahead of Craig Dollansky, Dobmeier and Lasoski, from the tail. Maeschen, Davey Heskin, Justin Henderson, Don Droud Jr. and Sam Hafertepe Jr. rounded out the top ten.

Brown posted quick time on the night as well as winning his heat from the sixth starting spot. Other heat winners included Garner, Hafertepe and Heskin. Lasoski won the B. Bryan Clauson lost a left rear wheel in qualifying and flipped in turn one. He was also uninjured, but done for the night.

With two point shows remaining, there are just 137 points separating first from fifth in the standings.

“I gave everything I had,” said Madsen in Victory Lane. “I didn’t want to give another one up. When I get around Brian, we start racing pretty hard. I hope he’s not too angry at him. I did chop him. I can’t thank my team enough. It’s definitely, I think, the best team in the Midwest and one of the best in the country. I’m just lucky to drive it.”

The 360 feature went almost without a hitch. Young Josh Baughman shot from the pole to lead Matt Covington and Henderson early on in the 18-lapper. The only caution came on lap five when Alan Ambers slowed to a stop in turn one.

Baughman led Covington, Henderson, Calvin Landis and Nate Van Haaften back to green flag racing. Henderson made quick work of Covington for second at that point, while Landis followed him into third on lap eight.

Baughman continued to lead until lap twelve, when Henderson found his way by for 360 career win number three here. Baughman ran a strong second, ahead of Landis, Van Haaften and Jamie Ball. Joe Beaver, Sheldon Haudenschild, Covington, Jon Agan and Dusty Zomer rounded out the top ten.

Joe Beaver registered quick time on the night over the 40-car field, while Sawyer Phillips, Henderson, Jarrod Schneiderman and Brooke Tatnell won heat races. Tony Bruce Jr. won the B.

“This was a great win,” said Henderson in Victory Lane. “I’m super-happy for this team. I’m just happy to be a part of it. Baughman was running a great race. He was doing a great job. I just enjoy the heck out of running with these guys.”

Heats were ten laps in distance.  Heat winners and the top three in passing points qualified for the Dash.  The top sixteen point getters locked into the A.  Bacon led early over Tripplett and Curry.  Three laps in, Ward did a 360 and drilled Nienhiser, ending both of their nights.  The restart saw Bacon leading Tripplett, Curry, Wankel and Bruns.  Bruns had passed to third, but the move was negated by the caution.  While Curry was tight and did several wheelies down the frontstretch, Bruns and Smith got by.  The two battled back and forth for third, before making contact in turn three.  That ended the heat for Bruns and sent Smith to the back.  Waugh grabbed third from Curry on the last lap in an eventful heat.

 

Heat two (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Danny Lasoski 33 (1*) 2. Christopher Bell 53 (7*) 3. Logan Faucon 52F (2*) 4. Ben Wagoner 84 (6*) 5. Parker Price-Miller 01 (8*) 6. John Dines 31 (3) 7. Jeremy Standridge 10s (9) 8. Randy Myers 18x (5) 9. Patrick Budde 90 (4) DNS – Kody Kinser 4K

 

Lasoski led Faucon and Dines early.  On lap three, Wagoner snagged third from Dines, but Bell was on the move.  He took third from Wagoner on lap five, and second from Faucon coming for the white flag lap.

 

Heat three (started, *qualified for feature): 1. Jerrod Hull 12 (2*) 2. Jimmy Hurley 35 (8*) 3. Joey Moughan 17m (4*) 4. Terry McCarl 99 (6*) 5. Brett Samonds 47 (1) 6. Jack Lee 25AU (3) 7. Chris Urish 77u (7) 8. Ryan Bunton 6R (9) 9. Ian Madsen 18 (5) 10. Robbie Standridge 10K (10)

 

Hull led Samonds and Moughan early on.  Robbie Standridge spun with four laps in the books.  The restart saw Hull leading Samonds, Moughan, Hurley, Lee and McCarl.  A seventh running Madsen clipped the turn one infield tire on the restart, ending his heat, and collecting Standridge who was sent pitside.  Lee was running fifth when he got sideways and collected Urish at the halfway point.  Moughan and Hurley battled for second, with Hurley gaining the spot on lap nine, while McCarl worked his way by Samonds and Lee for fourth.

 

Dash (started): 1. Christopher Bell (2) 2. Jimmy Hurley (1) 3. Jay Waugh (4) 4. Danny Lasoski (6) 5. Brady Bacon (5) 6. Jerrod Hull (3)

 

Bell dominated the 6-lapper.  Hurley and Waugh traded second three times in the best race of the Dash.

 

B main (started): 1. AJ Bruns (9) 2. Ian Madsen (11) 3. Brett Samonds (2) 4. Paul Nienhiser (14) / 5. Robbie Standridge (12) 6. Ryan Bunton (6) 7. Randy Myers (7) 8. Caleb Wankel (8) 9. Kody Kinser (13) 10. John Dines (3) 11. Patrick Budde (10) 12. Jeremy Standridge (1) 13. Jack Lee (4) 14. Chris Urish (5) DNS – Vinny Ward

 

Samonds led early in the 12-lapper over Jeremy Standridge and Lee.  Dines stopped with a lap in the books bringing out the caution flag.  On the restart fourth running Bunton and Lee contacted.  Lee was done, as was Urish who was also involved.  Second running Jeremy Standridge also bowed out with front end issues.  Madsen, who started 11 th was in third by lap five, following Bruns, who had moved up form row five.  Bruns would grab the lead from Samonds on lap nine.  Nienhiser would come back from his heat race misfortune to pass Robbie Standridge for the final transfer spot on the last lap.

Korey Weyant (14) 19. Jimmy Hurley (2) 20. Brett Samonds (19)

 

Bell led the 25-lapper early over Hurley, Lasoski and Bacon.  While Bell pulled away, Lasoski challenged Hurley for second in a good battle.  Hurley jumped the turn four cushion with nine laps in the books, spinning sideways.  It was the only caution of the event, and Bell had already put six lapped cars between himself and Lasoski.  Bacon restarted third, ahead of Hull and Faucon who would battle for fourth.  Faucon took the spot on lap 15, but a surging Tripplett would grab it later.  Bell dominated the last half of the race, lapping up to eighth and running high low and through the middle in traffic.

Heats were ten laps in distance with the top two finishers heading to the Dash. Henderson shot out to the early lead, while Swindell shot by Martin into second right away.

Madsen jumped into an early lead in the 30-lapper over Swindell and Dollansky. With six laps in the books, Hafertepe spun in turn two bringing caution. Madsen had the lapped car of Juhl between he and Swindell, Dollansky, Abreu and Haudenschild. Blaney retired druing the caution as well. The lead quartet remained the same through heavy traffic. Swindell made a bid for the lead when Madsen had trouble lapping Hafertepe on lap 19. At that point, Henderson got into the turn two wall and flipped. He was ok. Madsen held his lead and appeared to be closing on the win, when Dollansky blew a right rear tire on the last lap. The restart saw Madsen leading Swindell, Abreu, Haud and McCarl. The green, white, checker finish saw Madsen hold on for his second All Star win at Huset’s in as many years, and Abreu grabbed second from Swindell on the last lap. The track was racy from top to bottom, with Madsen making a number of good moves in traffic to win it.

 

 

Henderson Wins Thriller at Knoxville! by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, July 19, 2014 – Justin Henderson shot by Ian Madsen coming for the white flag to grab the $3,000 win in the 410 sprint car feature on 3M Night at the Knoxville Raceway on Saturday. The win was Henderson’s sixth in his career at the famous half-mile. Dusty Zomer picked up a convincing win in the 360 main event, and rookie Devin Kline picked up his first career win in the 305 feature.

Wayne Johnson shot out from his starting spot on the pole to lead the first two laps of the 410 main event, ahead of Madsen and Henderson. Madsen took the point on the third go-around, while Henderson followed him by Johnson two laps later.

The only caution of the event flew with seven laps completed. Brad Loyet came to a rest in turn two. Under caution, contact from another car collapsed the front end of the tenth place car of Mark Dobmeier. He retired with Loyet.

Madsen led Henderson, Johnson, Clint Garner and Dusty Zomer back to green on the restart. Zomer took over the fourth spot, with Garner in fifth. Behind them, Sammy Swindell, Terry McCarl and Brian Brown were slicing and dicing for position.

Meanwhile, Madsen continued to lead, increasing his margin on Henderson. With five laps to go, Henderson brought the BDS Motorsports #1 closer to the leader. In heavy lapped traffic coming for the white flag, he made his winning move. Madsen finished second ahead of Johnson, Zomer and Brown. Swindell, Garner, McCarl, Davey Heskin and Craig Dollansky rounded out the top ten.

Swindell set quick time on the night, while Garner, Brown, Jason Johnson and Don Droud Jr. claimed heat races. Danny Lasoski won the B main.

“I was doing nothing but screwing up,” said Henderson in Victory Lane. “I was ramping the inside berm and hitting the wall. It was a lot of fun though. I like a lot of things that are going on. It makes it a lot of fun. Bryan (Sunby) always gives us a really good car. If I wouldn’t have screwed up earlier, maybe I could have driven by him (sooner). It was a great racecar as always.”

Calvin Landis led the first two laps of the 360 feature, but it was all Dusty Zomer after that. The Sioux Falls native took the point on lap three. On the fourth go-around, Henderson moved into third, passing Sawyer Phillips.

On lap six the only stoppage of the 18-lapper came for debris in turn two. Zomer led Landis, Henderson, Jamie Ball and Lee Grosz back to green flag racing. Zomer pulled away from the field, while Henderson slowly reeled in Landis for the runner-up position. He would make his move for the spot on the last lap. Ball and Jeff Swindell trailed the lead trio. Joe Beaver, Grosz, hard-charger Russ Hall, Jarrod Schneiderman and Jason Johnson rounded out the top ten.

Henderson posted quick time in the 360 class, while Wayne Johnson, Dylan Peterson, Josh Baughman and Russ Hall claimed heat races. Billy Alley topped the B main.

“It was a fast race track,” said Zomer of his third career 360 feature aboard the Derek Ingalls’ #91. “There was a good bottom and a good top. We started everything simple. We always have some things to change, but we were fast and we were good. I think we’ll have some good notes for a couple of weeks (360 Nationals).”

Devin Kline put the L&J Enterprise #5J in the lead right away in the 15-lap 305 feature from his starting position on the pole with Steve Breazeale and Kade Higday in tow. Keoni Texeira took third briefly, but J Kinder was on the move, grabbing third on lap five, and then second from Breazeale on lap nine in the non-stop event.

Kinder was on a rail and shot by Kline in traffic for the lead on lap ten. He drifted up a bit behind a lapped car on the next circuit, however, and Kline shot back by, never giving up the point again. It was his first ever feature win here. Kinder followed, ahead of Breazeale, Texeira and Kevin Hetrick. Hard-charger Stacey Alexander, Jeff Wilke, Mitchell Alexander, Higday and Mike Philben rounded out the top ten.

Matthew Stelzer set quick time in the 305 class, but suffered motor problems in his heat and retired for the night. Stacey Alexander, Mitchell Alexander and Dustin Clark won heat races, while Corey Kautz won the B.

“I felt like I set a good pace until I got to lapped traffic,” said Kline in Victory Lane. “I got into the middle and didn’t know where to go. I ran the top and slowed down a lot. Once (Kinder) slid me, and slid back up, I knew I had a good enough car to get back on the bottom and set sail.”

Huge crowd was in the house for “Fan Appreciation Night” at Attica. Drivers drew into heat races and then timed according to what heat they were in, with three cars on the track at a time. Heats were inverted by four, taking the top five to the feature, with the top three finishers redrawing for their starting positions.

Chris Andrews (20 th car to time) set quick time overall on the 1/3-mile oval at 12.521 seconds. He was followed by Caleb Griffith (3 rd car out), Brandon Martin (2 nd), Brian Lay (12 th), Duane Zablocki (1 st), Bryan Sebetto (22 nd), Jamie Veal (16 th), Jody Keegan (14 th), Byron Reed (8 th) and Caleb Helms (6 th). Dean Jacobs went up in smoke in time trials and scratched for the night.

Heat one (started): 1. Helms 40 (5) 2. Reed 5 (1) 3. Martin 11x (3) 4. Cap Henry 53 (6) 5. Zablocki 9z (2) / 6. Stuart Williams 46AU (7) 7. Griffith 40DD (4) 8. Todd Heller 14H (8) 9. Rodney Hurts 97x (9)

Reed led early. Griffith was shuffled back out of a transfer before getting over the berm on lap seven while running sixth. Helms dove under Reed coming out of four on the last lap for the win.

Heat two (started): 1. Cole Duncan 22 (1) 2. Veal 35AU (3) 3. Lay 45 (4) 4. Keegan 60 (2) 5. Dain Naida 07x (5) / 6. Taylor Ferns 55F (7) 7. Kevin Shelbo 8 (8) 8. Kirk Jeffries 59J (6) DNS – Dean Jacobs 9

Duncan led Veal and Keegan early in the 8-lapper. Ferns spun to bring the caution with two laps down. Lay used the restart to shoot by Keegan into third.

Heat three (started): 1. Travis Philo 5T (1) 2. Sebetto 97 (3) 3. Andrews 16 (4) 4. Stuart Brubaker 35 (2) 5. Jim Nier 00 (6) / 6. Cale Thomas 91 (5) 7. Bruce White 96AU (7) 8. Paul Dues 87 (8)

Philo led early over Sebetto and Brubaker. Andrews took third on lap three, before Dues got over the top of turn two with five laps down. Philo led the rest of the way, white Nier made a transfer in a rare Attica appearance after a duel with Thomas.

B main (started): 1. Griffith (4) 2. Williams (1) 3. Thomas (3) 4. Heller (7) 5. Ferns (2) / 6. Jeffries (10) 7. Shelbo (5) 8. White (6) 9. Dues (8) 10. Hurst (9) DNS – Jacobs

Dues would spin before a lap could be completed, and Hurst exited with a foul sounding motor. Williams led Griffith and Ferns early on. On lap 6 of the 10-lapper, Williams would pull a 360 wpin out of the lead, but maintain second. Griffith went on to win, while Heller did nicely to move up a few spots into fourth.

A main (started): 1. Andrews (3) 2. Lay (1) 3. Helms (5) 4. Reed (4) 5. Sebetto (6) 6. Henry (10) 7. Duncan (7) 8. Griffith (16) 9. Nier (15) 10. Brubaker (12) 11. Naida (14) 12. Williams (17) 13.

Thomas spun before a lap could be completed in the 30-lapper. Lay shot out to the early lead over Andrews and Veal. Helms shot by Veal for third on the second go-around, in what would be a good battle between the two throughout. Thomas spun again on lap nine, ending his night. Lay led Andrews, Helms, Veal and Reed back to green. While the low side yielded the best groove, Sebetto hit the high side to move into the top five on lap 11. Andrews snatched the lead from Lay on lap 13 right before the caution flew for a stopped Philo. The battled waged for third between Helms and Veal until the latter performed a 360 spin, losing several spots. Martin spun on lap 25, bringing out the final caution. Andrews led Helms, Lay, Reed and Sebetto back to green with five laps to go. Lay was able to reclaim second, while Andrews cruised to the win in the Burmeister #16. Griffith, who won the B, grabbed hard-charger honors.

Capodice led the 25-lapper early over Clark and Dinan. Clark shot to the lead two laps later, while Ryan moved into fifth on lap five. Dussel spun while running fourth on lap 12, bringing a yellow. The restart saw Clark leading Dinan, Ryan, Capodice and Keckler back to green. Ryan snuck under Dinan for second on lap 14, before Schneider went over the turn four berm on lap 15. Ryan and Dinan battled back and forth for second. Meanwhile, Rando stormed on the high side from sixth to third. In lapped traffic coming to the white flag, Ryan snuck under Clark for an exciting win.

 

 

Dollansky Conquers Knoxville Mid-Season Field!

By Bob Wilson

KNOXVILLE, IOWA (June 21) – Craig Dollansky captured the 61st annual mid-season championship at Knoxville Raceway Saturday night while Jamie Ball was victorious in the 360 division and J Kinder took the laurels for the 305s during Farm Bureau/Knoxville Raceway Hall of Fame Night.

After a red flag on the opening lap of the 410 feature for a single car wreck, pole sitter Craig Dollansky grabbed the initial lead of the 25-lap event. Just one lap later he lost that spot to fellow row one starter Lynton Jeffrey. Jeffrey held that spot until the finish of the seventh go around when Dollansky recaptured the top spot at the flag stand. Dollansky then proceeded to obliterate the 24-car field as he pulled away from all contenders to capture his 15th career feature event win in a race which went non-stop. The win paid the Minnesota driver $3,500 for his efforts.

Behind him the top ten was in constant flux and it took the entire race to sort those positions out. Fourth row starter Justin Henderson finished in the runner-up spot as Brian Brown made a last lap pass of Danny Lasoski to take third. Bronson Maeschen, an early contender, finished fifth. Rounding out the top ten finishers were Dusty Zomer, Jeffrey, Davey Heskin, Terry McCarl and Clint Garner on what could well have been the raciest track of the season.

The 360 division saw a first-time winner as Jamie Ball led nearly the entire 18-lap distance to claim the $1,500 top prize. Ball, who started on the pole, took command of the race right away. In the early going he was challenged by fellow front row starter Russ Hall. On lap eight fourth row starter Justin Henderson grabbed the runner-up position away from Hall and began chasing Ball around the big Knoxville half mile.

Henderson, who was always in Ball’s shadow, stayed very close as the two top runners began racing through the lap traffic. On the 14th circuit Henderson made the pass of Ball to claim that lap. Ball did not surrender and one lap later he had the lead again. As those two cars continued in this non-stop race Ball was able to put a few backmarkers between himself and Henderson in the final stages to come across the finish line and claim his first career feature event.

Following Ball and Henderson were Nate VanHaaften, Hall, Joe Beaver, Jon Agan, rookie Dylan Peterson and brothers Jarrod and Josh Schneiderman.

The 305 feature saw numerous slow-down flags for that 15-lap mid-season event. Kevin Hetrick utilized his front row starting nod to claim the first five laps of the race. On lap six J Kinder pulled alongside of the Hetrick machine and the duo raced side by side for the entire lap with Kinder edging Hetrick at the stripe to the top spot. Once in front Kinder created a huge lead which was negated two laps from the finish when Josh Jones wrecked in turn one.

Kinder was able to hold his lead on the restart to take his 5th career win at this Central Iowa race track. He was followed to the finish by Hetrick, Mitch Alexander, Mike Mayberry, Mathew Stelzer and rookie Devin Kline.

The 305 feature event was raced in honor of the late Brian Hetrick who lost his life in a motorcycle accident in 2008. The Hetrick family added money to the purse for that 18 lap event. Brian’s brother Kevin is a competitor in the 305 class and runs the No. 35 in tribute to him.

Victory is Sweet’s at Knoxville!

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, June 14, 2014 – In the World of Outlaws only tune-up for August’s Knoxville Nationals, Brad Sweet drove Kasey Kahne’s #49 to victory at the Knoxville Raceway on Saturday night. The victory was the first in 410 competition at Knoxville for Sweet, who won the 2008 Knoxville Midget Nationals. Justin Henderson earned his first feature win of the year in the 360 class.

Sweet earned the pole position for the 25-lap WoO feature event by virtue of winning the Dash. He shot out to an early lead in the non-stop event over Danny Lasoski and Shane Stewart. Knoxville Raceway point leader, Terry McCarl, surged into contention, passing Stewart for third on lap two. The two drivers would swap the spot three times, before McCarl gained it for good on lap five.

Sweet entered lapped traffic on lap eight. Lasoski made a brief bid for the lead, before McCarl shot underneath him in turn two for the runner-up spot on lap fourteen. Stewart followed suit and tracked down McCarl, who was caught behind a lapped car with two to go.

Sweet raced to a three-second advantage and finished over a straightaway ahead of McCarl at the checkers. Stewart was third, ahead of Daryn Pittman and Kerry Madsen. Lasoski, Paul McMahan, Ian Madsen, hard-charger Brian Brown (from 23rd) and Craig Dollansky rounded out the top ten. World of Outlaws regulars comprised just four of the top ten slots.

RJ Johnson flipped in time trials after breaking his rear axle. He was done for the night, but uninjured. Jason Sides and Dollansky were involved in a heat race incident. Neither was injured. Ian Madsen hit the wall in his heat race. All three made the call for the B main.

Stewart set quick time, while Lynton Jeffrey, McMahan, Clint Garner and McCarl were heat race winners. Brooke Tatnell won the C main, and Kerry Madsen took the B.

“It feels good,” said Sweet in Victory Lane. “I’ve always wanted to win at Knoxville. I won here in a midget, but it means something to beat these guys. There were 48 strong cars here tonight. We’ve been strong, but we’ve slumped a little bit. It’s good to be back in Victory Lane, especially here at Knoxville. We work really hard to be good at this racetrack. We had an awesome car. I could move around all over the place. I think I ran the top too long, but I felt I could run all over.”

“I got going there, and I thought we may have a shot at Brad,” said McCarl. “We were good on the bottom, and he was running the middle. He’s a pretty smart driver. We needed to get to him before he found it. We got to a couple of lapped cars, and one of them thought he was racing for second. We got slowed down a little bit, and Brad got a little bit away from us.”

“I honestly made way too many mistakes,” said the third place Stewart. “Terry found the rubber before I did and I probably should have moved down a little earlier. I thought I had a shot at him on the last lap, but I missed it in one and two. That killed my momentum. Obviously, this is a good finish. It’s hard to win here, and hard to finish on the podium. Anytime that we can do that for our guys is special.”

Finishing fourth in his heat race was the only thing keeping Justin Henderson from sweeping the night’s 360 action. He registered quick time of the night, before storming from eighth to win the main event, the second in a 360 here.

Rookie Dylan Peterson shot out to the early lead in the non-stop 15-lap feature ahead of Jamie Ball and Jon Agan. Agan shot under the top two runners on lap three and took the point. Four laps later, Henderson duplicated the move by a dueling Ball and Peterson for the second spot.

On lap eight, Henderson hit the high side to drive around Agan to take the lead for good in the BDS Motorsports #1. Agan finished second, ahead of Joe Beaver, Russ Hall, who drove from 18th to fourth and Jonathan Cornell. Peterson, Matt Moro, Ball, Matt Juhl and Josh Higday rounded out the top ten.

Moro, Jarrod Schneiderman and Tony Shilling won heat races. In a bizarre incident, Tyler Brooks had his throttle stick while staging for the feature. He flipped wildly on the frontstretch, but was uninjured.

“That was pretty crazy,” said Henderson in Victory Lane. “There were chunks flying everywhere. I’m glad the race went the way it did. It kept going, and there really wasn’t time to regroup. It was a lot of fun. There were cars everywhere. At the end, it was pick your moment and stick with it if it was working.”

Heat one (started): 1. McMahan (1) 2. Darrah (2) 3. Gravel (4) 4. Sides (5) 5. Kaeding (6) 6. Dollansky (8) / 7. Swindell (7) 8. Crockett (3) 9. Johnson (9) 10. Lusk (10)

McMahan led the distance in the 8-lapper to earn a trip to the Dash. Top six qualified for the A. Big Game Treestands cars started in row four and battled for the last transfer. Dollansky was able get past Crockett for the spot, with Swindell heading to the B.

Heat two (started): 1. Pittman (1) 2.. Schatz (4) 3. K. Kinser (2) 4. Dobmeier (8) 5. Lasoski (3) 6. Heskin (5) / 7. Juhl (7) 8. Prochaska (6) 9. Ingle (9) DNS – Schuchart

Pittman led flag to flag. Schatz challenged late. Dobmeier was the mover, going from 8 th to 4 th.

Heat three (started): 1. Saldana (2) 2. I. Madsen (1) 3. K. Madsen (4) 4. Sweet (3) 5. Brown (5) 6. S. Kinser (6) / 7. Allen (9) 8. Tatnell (7) 9. Tostenson (8) DNS – Gharst

Saldana got the jump on I. Madsen at the start and led the distance in a mostly single-file affair save an early battled between Brown and Kinser for fifth.

B main (started): 1. Swindell (3) 2. Crockett (1) 3. Juhl (4) 4. Prochaska (2) 5. Tatnell (5) 6. W. Johnson (7) / 7. Lusk (10) 8. Ingle (8) 9. Tostenson (6) 10. Allen (9) DNS – Schuchart, Gharst

Crockett led early in the 12-lapper before Swindell took the point on lap five. Juhl was impressive in his first career 410 start in getting by Prochaska late for third.

Dash (started): 1. Saldana (1) 2. Schatz (5) 3. Sweet (2) 4. Lasoski (3) 5. K. Madsen (4) 6. McMahan (7) 7. Gravel (6) 8. Pittman (8)

Saldana led the six-lap distance, while Schatz moved by Sweet with two to go for second. K. Madsen made a late bid for fourth and a starting spot in row two, but fell short.

A main (started): 1. Saldana (1) 2. Schatz (2) 3. Sweet (3) 4. Lasoski (4) 5. McMahan (6) 6. K. Madsen (5) 7. Pittman (8) 8. Darrah (10) 9. Gravel (7) 10. K. Kinser (11) 11. I. Madsen (12) 12. Crockett (9) 13. Sides (13) 14. Brown (15) 15. Heskin (14) 16. S. Kinser (18) 17. Dollansky (21) 18. Swindell (19) 19. Juhl (24) 20. Tatnell (23) 21. Dobmeier (20) 22. Prochaska (17) 23. Johnson (22) 24. Kaeding (16)

Juhl elected to start on the tail. Saldana led the 30-lap non-stop feature from the outset. Kaeding dropped out on lap one, and Johnson dropped at the halfway point. He would be the only car lapped in an event that unfortunately saw rubber-down conditions from the outset. Schatz, who won here last year, pulled up on Saldana a time or two, but the race never got into lapped traffic on the half-mile. It was the second Friday win in a row for Saldana.

Schuchart lost power coming for the checkers completing his first lap. Mark Kinser still holds the record of 13.571 seconds set in 2000.

Heat one (started): 1. K. Madsen (2) 2. Brown (1) 3. McMahan (4) 4. Swindell (3) 5. Nienhiser (5) 6. S. Kinser (6) / 7. Saville (9) 8. Martin (10) 9. Crockett (7) 10. Sides (8)

The heats went 8 laps and took the top six to the feature. Brown got on it and K. Madsen laid off stacking up Sides and S. Kinser behind him. Sides jumped S. Kinser’s right rear which flattened. Both restarted, but Sides would exit on lap six with nose wing issues. K Madsen and Brown battled for the lead throughout. S. Kinser came on late, using the caution for Sides and a Crockett flat right rear on the last lap to get by Saville for the final transfer.

Heat two (started): 1. Dollansky (1) 2. Saldana (4) 3. Darrah (2) 4. Boston (3) 5. Gravel (6) 6. Sweet (5) / 7. W. Johnson (8) 8. Brahmer (9) 9. Allen (10) 10. Alley (7)

Alley ducked out early and scratched for the night. W. Johnson shot to fifth at the drop of the green, but Gravel and Sweet worked back by for the transfers. Dollansky led flag to flag.

Heat three (started): 1. McCarl (2) 2. Schatz (4) 3. Pittman (3) 4. I. Madsen (6) 5. Lasoski (1) 6. K. Kinser (7) / 7. Selvage (8) 8. RJ Johnson (5) 9. Ingle (9) DNS – Schuchart

Martin and Saville made contact at the drop of the green, ending both their nights. W. Johnson led throughout. Brahmer was impressive on the cushion to grab second. Selvage passed Sides in the last corner for third.

Dash (started): 1. Schatz (2) 2. Saldana (3) 3. K. Madsen (6) 4. McMahan (4) 5. Swindell (1) 6. McCarl (7) 7. Dollansky (8) 8. Boston (5)

With a lap in the books, Boston crashed hard in turns one and two. He was o.k., but done for the night. Schatz held off Swindell early and Saldana late to lead the six lap distance.

Schuchart (24, pr.) 24. Nienhiser (12) DNS – Boston

Before a lap could be completed in the 30-lapper, Nienhiser spun and retired. The restart saw Saldana get the jump on Schatz and McMahan. Great racing for second between Schatz and McMahan, who grabbed the spot before a caution for a slowing Allen 8 laps in. Saldana chose the inside line in the double-file restart ahead of McMahan, Schatz, K. Madsen, McCarl and Pittman. Great racing through the field as Schatz took second on lap ten, and McMahan took it back on lap 16. Both were right there with Saldana in traffic. Schatz took second for good on lap 20 as McMahan got hung up in lapped traffic. Saldana managed to stay out front for his fourth win of the season. K. Madsen made a late bid for third. I. Madsen was the hard-charger, moving up nine spots. Most of those were gained on the lap 8 restart. The house was packed and the WoO’s return was a big success with good racing and a good crowd.

 

 

Dollansky Holds Off Heskin in Exciting Finish at Knoxville!

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, May 24, 2014 – In a race that saw four lead changes, Craig Dollansky held off Davey Heskin to claim his second feature win of the season at the Knoxville Raceway on Saturday night. The Elk River, Minnesota was paid $3,000 for his 14th career 410 win at the half-mile. In 360 action, Jason Johnson took his fifth career feature win, while Kevin Hetrick scored for the first time in his Knoxville career in the 305 class.

Heskin got the jump on Dollansky to start the 20-lap 410 main event ahead of Lynton Jeffrey. Dusty Zomer shot into the top three on lap four. A battle ensued the next several laps as Terry McCarl and quick-timer Justin Henderson moved up to challenge Zomer for a podium position. At the halfway point, McCarl and Henderson moved by Zomer, a lap before Henderson would get by McCarl for third.

After the pair crossed the start/finish line, and with the top five bunched up in lapped traffic, the caution came out for Brooke Tatnell, who got into the turn three wall. The restart saw Heskin lead the field back to green, ahead of Dollansky, Henderson, McCarl and Zomer.

Dollansky slid in front of Heskin on the restart, but the latter was back in the lead a lap later in a torrid battled for the point. Dollansky came back on lap fourteen to take the lead and Henderson followed him by Heskin. Heskin was not to be denied, however, and surged back into second in the closing laps. Noticeably gaining on the leader, he nosed under Dollansky heading into turn one on the last lap, only to be denied by the leader, who took his line and cut his momentum.

Dollansky was victorious over Heskin, Henderson, Danny Lasoski and McCarl. Brian Brown, Ian Madsen, Zomer, Mark Dobmeier and B main winner Brad Loyet rounded out the top ten. Cole Wood, Larry Ball Jr. and Bronson Maeschen won the heats. Bob Weuve and Skylar Prochaska got upside down in the B main on separate incidents. Neither was injured.

“I tell you what, (Heskin) was good,” said Dollansky in Victory Lane. “This Knoxville racetrack…they don’t come any better. Kris Dunkin and his crew do such a fabulous job with it every week. There’s a lot of places where they don’t know what to do with the racetrack. This is the best track in the world. I’m just happy for this race team. We’ve been working hard this week. We still aren’t there yet, but we’ll keep working hard.”

An incident marred the start of the 15-lap 360 feature. After contact from another car, Jonathan Cornell slid sideways, collecting Mike Van Haaften and Kris Miller, who tipped over. Cornell and Miller were uninjured, but finished for the night. Russ Hall led the first green flag lap, before Mike Houseman Jr. came to a stop.

While Hall went high on the restart, Jason Johnson made the bottom stick and took the point before the caution came out again a lap later, for a spun Sawyer Phillips. The restart saw Eunice, Louisiana native leading Hall, Jon Agan, Jamie Ball and Justin Henderson back to the green. Ball passed Again for third on the restart.

Three more laps were in the books when Phillips spun again, ending his night. Ball again had a good start and got by Hall for second. While Johnson checked out, Ball and Hall battled for the runner-up position. On lap ten, Hall took it for good after a lengthy battle. Johnson won the event by half a straightaway over Hall, Agan, who gained third from Ball on the last lap, and Henderson. Joe Beaver, Dylan Peterson. Matt Moro, Jarrod Schneiderman and Matt Juhl rounded out the top ten. Henderson also set quick time in the 360 class, while Nate Van Haaften, Agan and Hall won heat races.

“On the start, I went to the top of one and two and (Hall) actually drove by me on the bottom,” said Johnson in Victory Lane. “I was actually surprised he opened the bottom back up on the restart. There was actually quite a bit of moisture there. After that, I just wanted to hit my marks and get a rhythm as fast as I could. This is our third week in a row here, and we’ve been struggling. I can’t say enough about this race team.”

Kevin Hetrick of Gladstone, Illinois shot around the front row of Mike Philben and McKenna Haase on lap one and led the distance using the low groove in the 12-lap 305 main event. The race was slowed only once by a caution at the halfway point for debris from the machine of Corey Kautz.

Haase stayed close in second, ahead of Mitchell Alexander. Matthew Stelzer and J Kinder ran a strong fourth and fifth. Hard-charger, Stacey Alexander, Philben, Steve Breazeale, Keoni Texeira and Jeff Wilke rounded out the top ten. Chris Walraven registered quick time, while Dustin Clark, Stelzer and Kade Higday won the heats.

“It was a tough race,” said Hetrick of his first career Knoxville win. “At times, I wanted lapped traffic and at times, I wanted clean air. I thought I had a good rhythm going. I have to thank my Dad and Brian Anderson. We’ve been struggling the last couple years here. Tonight, we had a perfect car. I’d like to dedicate this to all the people who help me.”

Brown on Fire with Two More Feature Wins at Knoxville!

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, May 17, 2014 – No one is hotter than Brian Brown at Knoxville Raceway. Saturday night, the Grain Valley, Missouri driver not only took his third 410 feature in a row at the famous half-mile, but he also won the 360 event as well after starting in the fifth row. It was the veteran driver’s 28th 410 win and 14th 360 win at Knoxville. He also performed a double victory performance in July of 2012. Steve Breazeale recorded his second feature win of the season and the sixth in his career in the 305 class.

Lynton Jeffrey led from his pole position at the outset in the 20-lap 410 main event. Bronson Maeschen moved into second, while Craig Dollansky and Mark Dobmeier put on a battle for third. Things were heating up, with the top five in lapped traffic, when Josh Schneiderman stopped with a flat tire at the halfway point.

Jeffrey led Maeschen, Dobmeier, Terry McCarl and Dollansky back to green flag racing. A lap later, McCarl shot by Dobmeier for third. Brown got stronger as the race wore on. When McCarl lost some momentum through the middle of turns one and two, Brown pounced on the show position on lap 17.

Things were closing up on the leader Jeffrey, but he took the white flag in the lead. Meanwhile, Don Droud Jr. slowed to a stop in turn three, setting up a green, white, checker finish, with Jeffrey leading Maeschen, Brown, McCarl and Dobmeier.

Brown shot past Maeschen for second in turns one and two on the restart, and carried his momentum down the backstretch in pursuit of Jeffrey. He made his winning move by diving to the bottom of turn three and leading the last two laps to victory. Jeffrey held second, ahead of Maeschen, McCarl and Clint Garner. Dobmeier, Davey Heskin, Ian Madsen, Dollansky and Brooke Tatnell rounded out the top ten.

Brown also set quick time, while Wayne Johnson, Dusty Zomer, Heskin and Dobmeier won the heats. Cole Wood won the B main. An incident in the third heat saw Rob Kubli and Schneiderman end up flipping. Neither were injured, and Schneiderman returned to compete in the B main and transfer to the main event.

“I just couldn’t get rolling very well early,” said Brown in Victory Lane. “I’d get my wing back too far and get tight. I got racing with Terry there, and we race each other as hard as anybody. I just couldn’t get going, but we got our wing where we needed it to be and we took off. On the restart, one went to the bottom and one through the middle. I went to the top and got such a good run. I was running over Lynton on the backstretch and I was able to put a winning move on. (Jeffrey) has taken over sprint car racing, and he’s done a lot for our race team with Vortex Wings. We’re proud to run his wings.”

The 360 feature was just as exciting. After Sawyer Phillips and Jordan Boston had difficulties, and Jonathan Cornell got into the wall before a lap could be completed, Russ Hall led from his pole position early with Jon Agan in tow. Jack Dover and Jamie Ball went back and forth for the third spot, before Tyler Brooks came to a stop entering the back pit gate with four laps in the books.

On the restart, Hall led Agan, Ball, Dover and Brown back to green. Dover surged by Ball on the restart for third, and picked off Agan for second on lap seven. With Hall running low and Dover running higher on the track, Brown moved into the top three on lap nine, and disposed of Dover two circuits later. He reeled in Hall and passed him on lap eleven, but the move was negated when Austin Alumbaugh suffered a flat right rear tire.

The four lap dash for the checkers saw Hall leading Brown, Dover, Agan and Joe Beaver back to green. Hall held his position, taking the low groove that Brown had been using. Brown shot to the cushion and made the winning pass after a fierce battle on lap 14. Hall came home second, ahead of Dover, Agan and Beaver. Justin Henderson, Nate Van Haaften, Ball, Mike Houseman Jr. and Jarrod Schneiderman rounded out the top ten. Henderson set quick time, while Wayne Johnson, Van Haaften and Brown won the heats.

“Russ is a heck of a driver, and has been a friend of mine for a long time,” said Brown in Victory Lane. “He does a great job in the 360 class. I’d like to see him win too, but we’re here to win. Starting ninth, with the caliber of drivers that are here…to be able to pull that off…it says a lot about our team.”

Steve Breazeale led from start to finish in the 12-lap 305 feature. Kade Higday smacked the backstretch wall and broke his rear-end before a lap could be completed. Breazeale drove from his pole position to the lead ahead of Mike Mayberry and Mike Philben once the green flag came out. With three laps in the books, contact between Mitchell Alexander and Tanner Edwards brought about the final slowdown of the event.

Breazeale led Mayberry, Philben, Keoni Texeira and Kevin Hetrick back to green flag racing. Breazeale was never seriously challenged, but Philben worked his way into second on lap five. He would finish there behind Breazeale, and ahead of Matthew Stelzer, Mayberry and J Kinder. Hetrick, Texeira, hard-charger Stacey Alexander, Chris Walraven and McKenna Haase rounded out the top ten. Stelzer set quick time, while Higday, Breazeale and Haase won heat races.

“These guys are tough,” said Breazeale in Victory Lane. “They are young…I guess I’m old. It’s getting tougher all the time. I was lucky to start up front, or I would have been back in fifth or sixth. These guys are fun to race with, and I’m having a blast this year.”

Brown Leads Three Repeat Winners at Knoxville!

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, May 10, 2014 – For the second week in a row, Brian Brown emerged victorious in 410 action at the Knoxville Raceway. This time, he made his winning move by passing Ian Madsen with two laps to go to secure his 27th career victory at the “Sprint Car Capital of the World”. Joe Beaver won for the second time in a row and third time this season in the 360 class, and Matthew Stelzer became a two-time winner in 2014 in the 305 class. The Dirt Trucks also visited, running two features, and Kevin Sather emerged victorious in both events.

Before a lap could be completed, Don Droud Jr. brought out the red on the backstretch. The Sonner #47 team went to work and got him back out for the restart. On the next try, Dustin Selvage destroyed his sprinter in a frontstretch ground pounder. He was uninjured.

Madsen led the 20-lap 410 feature early, ahead of Dusty Zomer and Brown. Danny Lasoski lost power and exited on lap three, while Terry McCarl took over his fourth place spot in the running order. Justin Henderson joined the lead quartet in fifth as those cars separated themselves from the pack.

Contact between McCarl and Henderson on lap nine caused damage that sidelined the latter, while McCarl came to the work area to repair a flat left rear tire. Brad Loyet also spun in turn three. The restart saw Madsen ahead of Brown, Davey Heskin, Lynton Jeffrey and Bronson Maeschen. The lead trio pulled away again.

Brown shot by Zomer on lap fifteen and set his sights on Madsen. He made his winning move on lap 19, sliding in front of the Aussie to take the lead and the $3,000 prize. Madsen, Zomer, Maeschen and Heskin followed. Craig Dollansky, hard-charger Droud, Jeffrey, Ryan Bunton and Mark Dobmeier completed the top ten. McCarl posted quick time over the 36-car field, and unofficially kept his point lead, while Jason Johnson, AJ Moeller, Brad Loyet and Clint Garner won heat races. Garrett Dollansky copped the B main.

“On that first lap, Danny (Lasoski) went across my front and a big clod knocked my tear-offs off,” said Brown in Victory Lane. “More than anything it was a hindrance to wipe my shield on every straightaway. The Dunkin’s did well with the track again tonight. Those guys were keeping a good pace. I was just trying to wait until lapped traffic. We got there the one time, and the yellow came out. That messed my game plan up, but we finally got Ian there. Two in a row…it feels great!”

Jonathan Cornell led from his pole position early in the 15-lap 360 feature. Joe Beaver settled into second ahead of Jon Agan. By the halfway point of the 15-lap event, Cornell, Beaver and Agan had separated themselves from the fourth place car of Jason Johnson and Justin Henderson.

A stumble over the cushion by Cornell on lap nine, set up the winning pass by Beaver, who cruised to his third win of the year, and the sixth of his career at Knoxville. Cornell held off Agan for second, ahead of Henderson and Jason Johnson. Nate Van Haaften, Jamie Ball, Russ Hall, Calvin Landis and Matt Moro rounded out the top ten. Henderson posted quick-time, while Moro, Tony Shilling and Russ Hall won heats.

“Jonathan had us smoked and I was just chasing,” said Beaver in Victory Lane. “I knew after he got the jump, we just needed to ride around. It’s always tougher for the leader to get through traffic than second is. Once he got through them, it was easier for us. It seemed like we caught everything well.”

The 12-lap 305 main event also went non-stop. J Kinder led from his pole position early, ahead of Kevin Hetrick and Mike Philben. Philben then took second, while Matthew Stelzer moved into third on lap three. On lap five, Stelzer worked by Philben for second.

Kinder slowed a bit in lapped traffic on lap eight, and Stelzer took over the point for good, winning his second this year, and fourth in his career at Knoxville. Kinder finished second, ahead of Steve Breazeale, who worked by Kade Higday on lap nine for third. Mitchell Alexander was fifth. Chris Walraven, Philben, McKenna Haase, hard-charger Stacey Alexander and Keoni Texeira rounded out the top ten. Breazeale timed in quickest, while Walraven, Josh Jones and Mike Mayberry won heats. Harvey Pitt flipped before the second heat could start, and Andee Beierle turned over after the feature checkers. Neither was injured.

“It’s just my Dad and me here again tonight, and I just have to thank him,” said Stelzer. “I have to thank my wife, daughter, mom, grandma and grandpa. This feels good.”

Joey Saldana lost a wheel and flipped in hot laps. The team pulled out the backup for qualifying.

Donny Schatz (2nd car out to time) set quick time, followed by Brad Loyet (6th car out), Kerry Madsen (20th), Daryn Pittman (23rd), Paul McMahan (1st), AJ Bruns (7th), Jerrod Hull (3rd), Jim Moughan Jr. (21st), Christopher Bell (39th) and Steve Kinser (22nd). Brian Brown tagged the turn three wall and took one lap at the end of qualifying. Jimmy Hurley tagged the wall and was done for the night. David Gravel suffered motor issues and was 39th quick. The team changed motors.

Heat one (started): 1. Wayne Johnson 77x (2) 2. Schatz 15 (4) 3. Bruns 44 (3) 4. Sammy Swindell 1 (6) / 5. Danny Smith 4s (7) 6. Logan Schuchart 1s (5) 7. Caleb Wankel 5 (8) 8. Joe B. Miller 51B (1)

Ten lap heats sent the winner to the Dash, and the next top five qualifiers as well. Johnson led the distance, while Schatz won a great battle with Bruns for second on the last corner. Miller held a transfer position much of the way before tagging the wall and exiting.

Heat two (started): 1. Jason Sides 7s (7) 2. Parker Price-Miller 9P (1) 3. Bryan Clauson 82 (5) 4. Ian Madsen 18 (6) / 5. Hull 12 (3) 6. Tiffany Wyzard 5w (8) 7. Paul Nienhiser 9x (2) 8. Brad Loyet o5 (4)

When Nienhiser contacted Loyet down the backstretch on the opening lap, all heck broke loose. I. Madsen and Wyzard spun to avoid them, and Hull suffered nosewing issues that would lose him a transfer spot by race end. Sides was the beneficiary and took the lead from Price-Miller on lap four to grab a Dash spot.

Heat three (started): 1. Jac Haudenschild 9w (2) 2 K. Madsen 29 (4) 3. Kraig Kinser 11K (1) 4. Brady Bacon 99 (7) / 5. Moughan Jr. 1m (3) 6. Joey Moughan 17m (6) 7. Ben Wagoner 84 (5) 8. Jeremy Standridge 10s (8)

Haud led the distance. The race was for the final transfer. Bacon utilized the bottom and Moughan Jr. the top. Bacon completed his run with a pass for the spot with two to go.

Heat four (started): 1. Brad Sweet 49 (1) 2. Bell 53 (3) 3. Pittman 9 (4) 4. David Gravel 83 (8) / 5. Logan Faucon 52F (2) 6. Bret Tripplett 22 (5) 7. Jimmy Bridgeman 14T (7) 8. Andy Baugh 6B (6)

Sweet led the duration, but there was plenty of action behind him. Bell and Pittman went at it for second, before Bell shot by for the spot at the halfway point. Gravel wrestled the final transfer from Faucon after a valiant effort by the youngster to hold the spot.

Heat five (started): 1. Cody Darrah 4 (2) 2. Joey Saldana 71m (1) 3. Brian Brown 21 (6) 4. S. Kinser 11 (3) / 5. McMahan 51 (4) 6. Greg Wilson w20 (5) 7. Jacob Allen 1A (7) DNS – Jimmy Hurley 35

Saldana led the first lap before S. Kinser spun airborne after clipping the turn one infield tire. He restarted at the rear and stormed back into contention, shooting by McMahan late for the final transfer. Darrah got by Saldana after the restart for the win, while Joey held off Brown for second in a good battle.

C main (started): 1. Jo. Moughan (1) 2. D. Smith (3) / 3. Baugh (2) 4. Bridgeman (4) 5. Allen (5) 6. Wankel (7) 7. Standridge (8) 8. Wyzard (6)

Jo. Moughan led green to checker in the 10-lapper. Wyzard hit the turn two wall and got upside down on lap two. She was uninjured.

Dash (started): 1. Bell (2) 2. Schatz (6) 3. W. Johnson (1) 4. Pittman (4) 5. Darrah (8) 6. Sides (10) 7. Haudenschild (7) 8. Sweet (9) 9. Bruns (3) 10. K. Madsen (5)

Bell and W. Johnson wrestled for the lead early on with Bell taking control in the 8-lapper. On lap 4, Bruns and K. Madsen were involved in a scrape in turn three. K. Madsen retired. Bell led W. Johnson, Schatz, Pittman and Darrah back to green flag racing, with Schatz moving up a spot by race’s end.

B main (started): 1. Nienhiser (4) 2. McMahan (1) 3. Hull (2) 4. Schuchart (7) / 5. Miller (6) 6. Moughan Jr. (3) 7. Faucon (5) 8. Wilson (10) 9. Jo. Moughan (11) 10. Tripplett (9) 11. D. Smith (12) 12. Wagoner (8)

McMahan led early, riding low to middle in the 12-lapper. Nienhiser was busting the cushion, and got by Hull for second, before reeling the leader in and passing him on lap seven. Schuchart and Miller battled the last half of the race for the final transfer, with Schuchart grabbing it with two laps to go.

A main (started): 1. Bell (1) 2. Pittman (4) 3. Schatz (2) 4. Sweet (8) 5. Darrah (5) 6. K. Madsen (10) 7. S. Kinser (13) 8. Sides (6) 9. Gravel (24) 10. K. Kinser (16) 11. Bruns (9) 12. Saldana (14) 13. Schuchart (18) 14. Haudenschild (7) 15. Clauson (19) 16. I. Madsen (21) 17. Nienhiser (14) 18. Swindell (20) 19. Brown (22) 20. W. Johnson (3) 21. Hull (12) 22. Price-Miller (15) 23. Bacon (23) 24. McMahan (11)

After Schatz got a rough start in the 40-lapper, Bell took command over Pittman and W. Johnson. Schatz would grab third by the third lap. On lap five an incident involving Haudenschild and eliminating McMahan brought a caution. Bell led Pittman, Schatz, W. Johnson and Sweet back to green. No one had anything for Bell by the time I. Madsen stopped with twelve laps either. Sweet had taken fourth, and Darrah fifth. The top five remained the same on a lap 30 restart for a stopped Sammy Swindell. There had been one close call in lapped traffic for Bell, but he cruised the final ten laps as rubber had been laid by then. Gravel was the hard-charger, going from 24th to 9th. W. Johnson lost a motor while running in the top ten.

 

 

Brown Breaks Through at Knoxville!

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, May 3, 2014 – After scoring sixteen wins in 2013, Brian Brown had a rough start this season. He finally broke through with a hard-earned victory on Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway. The win was the Grain Valley, Missouri driver’s 26th in 410 competition at Knoxville placing him ninth on the all-time wins list. Knoxville’s Joe Beaver won for the second time this season in the 360 class, while Holt’s Summit, Missouri’s J Kinder won in the 305 class.

Lynton Jeffrey shot out from the pole to lead early in the 20-lap 410 feature event with Brown and Justin Henderson in tow. Soon, Terry McCarl took over third before Cole Wood flipped in turn four with six laps in the books. The Auburn, California driver was taken to the hospital for observation.

The red flag occurred right after Brown had passed Jeffrey for the lead and negated the move. Brown made good on the pass on the eighth lap, however, before Garrett Dollansky stopped after tagging the wall. Brown led Jeffrey, McCarl, Henderson and Craig Dollansky back to green flag racing.

On lap ten, McCarl shot by Jeffrey for second and began his pursuit of Brown. The leader was undeterred despite one more caution period of a spun Bronson Maeschen with eleven laps down. Dollansky would get by Jeffrey a lap later to secure third, while McCarl did his best to get by Brown to no avail.

Brown went on to record the win in the Casey’s General Stores/FVP #21 ahead of McCarl, Dollansky, Dusty Zomer and Jeffrey. Davey Heskin, Ian Madsen, Clint Garner, Henderson and Dustin Selvage rounded out the top ten. Henderson registered the quick time of the night, while Brown, Mark Dobmeier, Garner and Madsen won heat races. Dakota Hendrickson took the B main. Ryan Bunton got upside down in his heat after contact from another car. Cap Henry backed his mount into the turn one wall in his heat. Niether was injured.

“When you have a multi-time champion behind you like Terry, you just don’t know what to do,” said Brown in Victory Lane. “He can run the bottom and the top. He’s a hell of a competitor and a guy I grew up idolizing. He’s a hell of a racecar driver. We needed this win. Everyone on this team has been a big support. That support means more when you are down, and I feel like the luckiest guy in the world.”

Joe Beaver shot out to an early lead in the 15-lap 360 feature from his pole position. Jamie Ball came from row two to settle into second, while Jon Agan moved into third on lap three. Beaver got a bit sideways on the sixth lap, allowing Ball to drive around him to the point. Sixth running Russ Hall got sideways at that point, while Carson McCarl tagged the wall but continued to avoid him.

The restart saw Ball leading Beaver, Agan, Jarrod Schneiderman and Jonathan Cornell. At the drop of the green, Beaver surged back by Ball and went on to win in the Beaver Motorsports #53 for the fifth time in his career at Knoxville. Ball followed in second ahead of Justin Henderson, Cornell and Agan. Nate Van Haaften, Schneiderman, Billy Alley, Tony Shilling and hard-charger, Matt Moro, who turned over in his heat, completed the top ten. Agan, Dylan Peterson and Carson McCarl won heat races. Russ Hall posted quick time of the night.

“I jumped the berm and just about spun out,” said Beaver of Ball’s pass for the lead on lap six. “He got into one a little tentative (on the restart), and we drove him as hard as we could. We were pretty good after that. I want to thank Don Long. This is his motor and I appreciate all he does for us.”

Kevin Hetrick led early on in the 12-lap 305 feature ahead of Tanner Edwards and Keoni Texeira. J Kinder was moving up quickly from his starting spot outside row four, however. The night’s quick-timer grabbed third from Texeira on lap five, and second from Edwards on the next go-around.

A Christopher Scank flip slowed things with six in the books. Scank was uninjured. The restart gave Kinder the opportunity to shoot by Hetrick and he would never look back in route to his fourth career win here. Matthew Stelzer closed late to finish second, ahead of Steve Breazeale, who made a last lap pass for third. Hetrick settled for fourth ahead of Stacey Alexander. Edwards, Texeira, Jeff Wilke, Mike Philben, who flipped after the checkers, and Mike Mayberry rounded out the top ten. Kinder registered quick time, while Stelzer, Philben and Mayberry won heats.

“We worked hard to be here,” said Kinder in Victory Lane. “I have to thank my Uncle who took a couple of days off work to get this motor ready. Hogzilla is back! I’d like to thank anyone who helped me get here. This is what I want to do.”

Dollansky Wires Field at Knoxville!

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, April 26, 2014 – Craig Dollansky held off both the challenges of Terry McCarl and the rain to record his 13th career victory at the Knoxville Raceway on Saturday night. Billy Alley won his eleventh career 360 feature, and Matthew Stelzer won for the third time in the 305 class.

Starting on the pole, Dollansky led Mark Dobmeier and Bronson Maeschen early in 20-lap 410 feature. McCarl made his move into third a lap later and tried to reel in the second place car of Dobmeier. Dobmeier was eliminated with nine laps in the books, when contact with a lapped car sent him upside down in turn two. He was uninjured.

Light rain fell during the red flag period, but the race was continued with Dollansky leading McCarl, Lynton Jeffrey, Justin Henderson and Maeschen on the restart. Henderson shot into third on the restart, as McCarl pursued the leader. Garrett Dollansky spun on lap 15 bringing caution again.

McCarl made a move on the low side of Dollansky on the restart, but the Elk River, Minnesota native held the point aboard the Big Game Treestands #7. Maeschen was running fifth with 17 laps in, when he spun, bringing the final caution of the event. Jeffrey used the restart to shoot by Henderson to finish third behind Dollansky and McCarl, who fell short with another slider. Ian Madsen was fifth. Wayne Johnson, Davey Heskin, Dustin Selvage, Brooke Tatnell and hard-charger Cole Wood rounded out the field. Henderson set quick time, while Selvage, Heskin and Josh Schneiderman won heats. Wood won the B main.

“We made the right adjustments on the car,” said Dollansky in Victory Lane. “It’s great to win out here tonight. You never know what’s going to happen in these races. I was just glad to see the rain held off. This is a special race track. To be back here racing with my son (Garrett), is great. Terry is a good competitor and a great guy. We had a pretty good race on those restarts.”

Alley won for the first time at the “Sprint Car Capital of the World” since 2008. He cruised to this one, leading every lap. He was never seriously challenged in the 15-lapper. One red flag, and one caution plagued the event. . On la nine, seventh running Carson McCarl was unable to avoid the lapped car of Mike Van Haaften, and jumped his right rear, sending his machine upside down. He was unhurt.

On lap eleven, a fifth running, Jamie Ball, contacted the wall and came to a stop. Alley led Jon Agan, Russ Hall, Joe Beaver and Justin Henderson back to green flag racing. Henderson passed Beaver and then Hall to complete the top three behind Alley. Hall was fourth, and Beaver fifth. Nate Van Haaften, Calvin Landis, Matt Moro, hard-charger Jeff Swindell and Jarrod Schneiderman rounded out the top ten. Alley also posted quick time, while Tom Lenz, Ball and Schneiderman won heats.

“This is probably one of the biggest wins in my career, because it’s been so long,” said Alley in Victory Lane. “To win at Knoxville is a great honor. There are a lot of great racecar drivers and race teams here, no matter what class you’re in. I’m proud of our race team. Joe Steinbach created all this. I’m just blessed to be able to drive it. 50% of all our winnings go to the Git-R-Done Foundation that Larry the Cable Guy has created. That’s cool too.”

Like the other two winners, Matthew Stelzer led from start to finish in the 12-lap 305 feature. Kade Higday kept the pressure on, however, in finishing second. Season opener winner, Steve Breazeale was third after a late race battle with fourth running J Kinder. Hard-charger, Stacey Alexander came from row eight to round out the top five. Finishing the top ten were Steve Palmer, Mitchell Alexander, Kevin Hetrick, Chris Walraven and Keoni Texeira. Mike Philben posted quick time, while Higday, Stelzer and Kinder won the heats.

“I have to thank my Dad tonight,” said Stelzer. “This one is his (the team chased fuel pump issues early in the night). It’s just him and myself tonight. I couldn’t do it without him. I was really aggressive in lapped traffic. Normally, I’m not. I saw Higday behind me on the yellow. He’s going to be a good one.”

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.”

Dollansky led the distance. Madsen jumped to second and Swindell to third. Swindell performed a 360 spin, maintaining fourth on lap five. Madsen jumped the berm in turn one on lap seven and came to a stop. Moughan held onto the second Dash spot, while Madsen came back to grab the final feature transfer.

Heat three (started): 1. Jerrod Hull 12 (2) 2. Johnson 77x (3) 3. AJ Bruns 44 (1) 4. Nienhiser 9 (4) / 5. Jeremy Standridge 10s (6) 6. Korey Weyant 99w (5) 7. Jeremy Schultz 5J (7) 8. Jimmy Davies 99 (8)

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.

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.

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

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.
