Williamson Earns Career-Best 360 Knoxville Nationals Result

Inside Line Promotions – KNOXVILLE, Iowa (Aug. 8, 2022) – Garet Williamson produced a career-best performance at the 32nd annual 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank last weekend.

Williamson guided the Bryant Paver Motorsports No. 24 to a fourth-place finish during preliminary night action before recording a 14th-place result in the finale out of the more than 100 drivers competing at Knoxville Raceway.

“It was pretty good,” he said. “It was another solid year. We learned a lot and made good laps.”

The event began on Thursday with Williamson qualifying 12th quickest. He then made a last-lap pass in a heat race to garner a fourth-place finish, which was the final lock-in spot into the A Main.

“That was the difference in us being in a B Main on Saturday and us locking in,” he said. “We fell to fifth and were right there with the driver in fourth. He bobbled coming out of turn two on the last lap. I had a huge run. He closed the door going into turn three. Then we touched off turn four and luckily we had enough to get by.”

The feature inversion lined Williamson up on the outside of the front row for the 20-lap main event.

“We were really good in the A Main,” he said. “Without a couple of mistakes we would have been on the podium. I think it was a better fourth-place effort than last year’s. I think moving around at the wrong time and not at the right time is what cost us a spot or two.”

Williamson’s fourth-place outing tied his career-best preliminary night showing at the event. It was good enough to lock him into Saturday’s main event for the second straight year.

“We lined up 13th and cracked the top 10 fairly early, but I got tight as the race went on,” he said. “I didn’t make the changes I needed through the race to stay good. It was my own fault and we faded a few positions. We were happy with the overall performance and taking another step forward at Knoxville.”

Williamson was credited with a career-best 14th-place result on Saturday.

Late Race Incident Sours Steven Tiner’s Night with C&M Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- Climbing back aboard the C&M Motorsports No. 7c on Saturday night in Placerville, CA, Steven Tiner had another strong run going with the team until an incident late in the race relegated him to a 15th place finish.

“Saturday night the track was really technical, which is not my cup of tea since being away from racing for a while, but once we got going, I felt really good,” Steven Tiner said. “Unfortunately, while we were battling hard the yellow came out and I got caught in a bad spot and ended up getting over on my side after trying everything to avoid contact with cars slowing in front of us.”

After racking a Top-Five with C&M Motorsports back in July, Tiner returned to the seat on Saturday night and got off to a decent start as he timed the Legacy Specialties/Lund Construction/Anrak backed No. 7c in 13th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Tiner’s qualifying effort put him on the front row of his heat race where a win made him eligible for the feature event redraw. With the first start being waived off due to an incident, the second start put Tiner alongside Andy Forsberg.

When the race came to life, Tiner and Forsberg battled hard, but it was Tiner holding the advantage. Keeping the No. 7c glued to the bottom of the speedway, Tiner raced on to grab the win and advanced into the redraw where the eight pill lined him up in the fourth row for the impending 25-lap feature event.

As the feature event came to life following a lap one yellow, Tiner was patient as he searched around the tricky surface from his fourth row starting position. Running in sixth, Tiner used a lap 11 restart to power into fifth as he then began to battle with Shane Hopkins and Andy Forsberg.

A myriad of yellows created restarts, and Tiner was able to work his way into fourth. Following a lap 21 stoppage, Tiner hooked up in a torrid battle with Shane Hopkins for third and as they duked it out for two laps, a yellow flag would fly but it would come at a cost for Tiner.

Amidst that torrid battle cars would begin to slow rapidly and trying to avoid heavy contact and get slowed down, Tiner would take evasive action and it would result in the C&M Motorsports getting over on its side.

With no severe damage, Tiner would restart for the final four laps as he ended up with a 15th place finish.

“I really thought we were going to get Cody and Mandi another good finish,’ Tiner said. “I am really appreciative of the giving me a chance despite not racing a lot as of late, but I feel like I get better each time out.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Legacy Specialties Inc., Lund Construction, Anrak, Sam Rhodes, Alturas Tires, Swartz Diesel, PT Shocks, Creason Enterprises, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

ON TAP: C&M Motorsports will be back in action at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night with Steven Tiner back behind the wheel.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-16, Wins-1, Top 5’s-2, Top 10’s-10

Joel Myers Jr Back on Placerville Speedway Podium

PETERSEN MEDIA: Making another appearance at Placerville Speedway over the weekend in the family-owned Joel Myers Racing No.46JR, Joel Myers Jr had an impressive run that saw the 16-year-old pick up a second-place finish on Saturday night.

“We have been working on our car the last few weeks, and I was really happy with the end result on Saturday night,” Joel Myers Jr said. “The track had some character which through us a little curve ball, but we were able to continue to tweak and make positive changes.”

Going out dead last in qualifying time trials, Myers Jr qualified inside the heat race inversion as he timed the All About Fire Protection/DirtDudes Excavating/High-Plains Building Division backed entry in 14th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Putting himself on the front row of his heat race, Myers Jr took full advantage of the prime starting position as he powered out to the early lead and never looked back. Picking up the heat race win convincingly, ‘Jr’, solidified a spot in the feature event and was also eligible for the Top-8 redraw.

Pulling the six, the Sebastopol, CA pilot took the green flag for the 25-lap finale on the outside of the third row. Getting a good start to the feature event, Myers Jr quickly worked into the Top-Five as he had an exciting tussle with Andy Forsberg as the duo jockeyed for position and both worked their way forward.

Getting into third, Myers Jr then turned his attention to second running Shane Hopkins who was cutting into the Kalib Henry’s lead as they got into traffic. Getting into second, Myers would keep pace with the race leader however a couple of untimely cautions late in the race negated his progress and took the leaders out of traffic.

Though he had a couple of restarts to try and make work of Henry, Myers Jr just couldn’t get to him in the closing laps and capped his night off with a second-place finish.

“I really didn’t need a couple of those late yellows, but those are things you can’t control,” Joel Myers Jr said. “I want to thank my family, my partners, and Cody for their support and hard work. Looking forward to getting back to Placerville on Saturday night and trying to finish one spot better.”

Joel Myers Jr Racing would like to thank All About Fire Protection, Hi-Plains Building Division, DirtDudes Excavating, PitStopUSA, System 1 Ignition, Weld, Smith Ti, Y2K Gaming, Shark Racing Engines, Lucas Oil, Vaider, L Delo Designs, Walker Performance Filtration, ShopRico.Com, Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Kaeding Performance, Triple X Race Co., and Ogio, for their continued support.

Wilson Returning to Knoxville Nationals This Week

Inside Line Promotions – BENTON RIDGE, Ohio (Aug. 8, 2022) – Greg Wilson is bound for the Midwest this week to tackle the 61st annual NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s.

Wilson’s preliminary night during the marquee event hosted by Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, is Thursday with the spectacle running through Saturday.

“Any time I’ve went in and expected much it usually backfires,” the Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics sponsored Seeling Motorsports driver said. “I feel like this year more than any we’ll try to treat it like any other race. Obviously it’s a huge event and the fact that Hercules Tires is involved with the Knoxville Nationals it’s great to go out there and help them promote the brand as well as compete with the best teams and racers around the world.”

This week marks the first time Wilson will visit the half-mile dirt oval since the Knoxville Nationals last year.

“We haven’t been very good on half miles so we’ve changed some stuff around,” he said. “We weren’t too bad at Knoxville at the end of last year. I’m hoping we can start off a little better. It’s pretty tough when you go to a place like that where you don’t race very often, especially with that level of competition. Hopefully we can roll out of the box well, draw a good pill and be competitive every time we hit the track. With that many cars it takes really being on your game and a little bit of luck to be successful.”

Wilson kicked off the 2021 Knoxville Nationals by earning his best feature result at Knoxville Raceway since August 2005. He placed 14th during the preliminary night feature before capping the event with a 10th-place finish in the D Main.

JONESTOWN, Pa.

(August 8, 2022) – Vincentown, New Jersey’s Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports did their best to add another top-ten mark to their 2022 stat sheet Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, but despite all attempts, they ultimately fell one spot short, finishing 11th in the recent weekend’s program after starting just inside the top-ten.

Whittall, ace of the JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, Enterprise, No. 67 sprint car, has finished inside the top-ten on multiple occasions this season including one against the All Star Circuit of Champions at Williams Grove Speedway. Most recently, Whittall finished fifth and sixth in Port Royal’s Living Legends Dream Race doubleheader on Saturday, July 30.

“Not the end result we wanted, especially after starting seventh, but we’ll put it behind us and move forward. We’ve had a lot going on in the background with our team, so we’re ready to enjoy a weekend off before getting back to the track,” Whittall explained, a Williams Grove Speedway winner in 2021. “Hats off to my team and all of my supporters. It’s been a great year so far…still a long way to go.”

Ryan Giles aims to cap Knoxville season with victory after tough Nationals outing
ByTyler Altmeyer
Aug 8, 2022

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GRIMES, Iowa (August 8, 2022) – Ryan Giles and Ryan Giles Racing did their best to harness a season’s worth of momentum into the largest event of the year, but despite the hard work and determination, their 360 Knoxville Nationals campaign was, at best, frustrating, forced to time late during their respective preliminary night which ultimately led to a poor send off, resulting in the 36th-fastest time overall. To add insult to injury, Giles finished fifth during his respective preliminary night heat race; he was one spot short of a transfer position.

Giles capped his 360 Knoxville Nationals campaign in Saturday’s D-Main; he did not start.

Despite his 360 Knoxville Nationals result ending shy of the ultimate goal, Giles is eager to get back to work, aiming big in Knoxville Raceway’s season championship on August 27.

“It was a tough weekend for our team. We were aiming for big results in the Nationals, but every lap counts and having to time late kinda killed our momentum,” Giles explained, driver of the Ryan Giles Racing, Albaugh LLC., Iowa Barnstormers, Hicklin Powersports, Barron Equipment, Omega Concrete Mixers, No. 9 sprint car. “Hats off to this team. They never give up. We still have a big night ahead at the end of the month. We’ll do what we can to cap the Knoxville season with a bang.”

ON DECK:
As noted, Ryan Giles and Ryan Giles Racing (360 Sprint Car) will continue their 2022 campaign with Knoxville Hospital & Clinics Season Championship Night at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, August 27; Knoxville’s regular season will officially conclude.

Amantea Rebounds During Wild Week to Record First Career Non-Wing Sprint Car Win

Inside Line Promotions - SELINSGROVE, Pa. (Aug. 8, 2022) - Joey Amantea captured his first career non-wing sprint car victory last Saturday to cap an up-and-down week.

He charged from seventh to second in a heat race before winning the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars feature at Selinsgrove Speedway from the third starting position.

"It was certainly a week of emotions," he said. "We got to second within a lap or two. Me and another driver had a slider battle until around Lap 15. We got into each other a couple of times and made contact that put me out front. Dirty air is huge at Selinsgrove. Once I got into clean air and could choose where I wanted to run it went well. I just needed that opportunity and once we got it I pulled away.

"I was able to build up a solid lead before a caution came out with two laps to go. That was about the most nerve-racking two laps of my career. There's not much as disappointing as seeing the yellow flag when you're leading with two laps to go, but we built up a second lead in the last couple of laps for the win."

Only a couple of days prior it appeared that Amantea would be sidelined after mechanical woes ended his night early last Wednesday at Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa.

"On Wednesday we honestly had a shot to win," he said. "We won a heat race and were super fast in the make-up feature. We were running fifth or sixth when the motor expired. We thought our season was over because we're out of motors."

Amantea was credited with a 19th-place result in the make-up feature and he was unable to start the regular main event.

The team did enjoy success in the micro sprint that night as Amantea advanced from 10th to seventh in a heat race, from fourth to second in the B Main and from 24th to seventh in the feature.

"We got up to 10th and got spun out," he said. "Then we came from the back up to seventh so it was a solid night in the micro sprint."

The sprint car season got back on track Thursday.

"My dad texted a friend who is selling a good 360," he said. "We picked it up Thursday and thrashed to put it in Friday for Bloomsburg. We showed up and it rained out. Then to go win at Selinsgrove, a track we've done well at, but with a new engine and not knowing how it would run was pretty cool."

Amantea plans on competing in micro sprint races this Wednesday at Action Track USA and Friday at Spirit Auto Center Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J.

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 3 - Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa. (sprint car) - Heat race: 1 (3); Feature: DNS (-); Make-up feature: 19 (7).

Aug. 3 - Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa. (micro sprint) - Heat race: 7 (10); B Main: 2 (4); Feature: 7 (24).

Aug. 6 - Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa. - Heat race: 2 (7); Feature: 1 (3).

Bayston ends I-55 visit with top-ten in Ironman 55; Knoxville’s coveted Nationals on the horizon

2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Eighth | 6008 points [372 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

CARLISLE, Pa. (August 8, 2022) - In perhaps the most demanding main event of the season, and on a challenging, elbows up surface to boot, CJB Motorsports and Spencer Bayston put together a motivating performance, capping the 55-lap, $20,000-to-win Ironman 55 at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Missouri, with a tenth-place score, advancing two positions and bettering their Friday night preliminary effort by one spot.

As noted, Bayston kicked-off Ironman 55 weekend with an 11th-place rally on Friday, August 5, tackling a technical surface to advance from 17th on the grid.
Despite missing the top of the podium, the Lebanon, Indiana, native and ace of the TrueTimber, Signing Day Sports, Bubbly Brands, JRC Transportation, Nyce Crete and Landis, Ecynbro Trucking, C&S Lawn and Landscape, Kistler Engines, No. 5 sprint car is as confident as ever heading into the coveted Knoxville Nationals.

“We’ve spent these last few weeks preparing for one of the biggest events of the season, and although we haven’t had great success…as great as we want…our heads are in a great place heading into the Nationals,” Bayston explained, a two-time World of Outlaws winner this season. “Both nights at Pevely served up technical race tracks and called for substantial changes that we haven’t experienced much this season. But, rolling into Knoxville with a car that we know is successful at this track keeps our expectations and confidence high. This is our biggest week of the season and we’re more than ready to get going.”

ON DECK:
Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports will continue their 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with the coveted Knoxville Nationals at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Thursday through Saturday, August 10-13; Saturday’s feature will award $175,000-to-win and $10,000-to-start.

Brown on top in 360 Nationals preliminary, finds top-ten in finale; Front Row Challenge and Knoxville Nationals on deck

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (August 8, 2022) - Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing put together a sound performance in Knoxville Raceway’s annual 360 Knoxville Nationals, scoring a victory along the way before capping the event with a top-ten performance, finishing sixth officially, in Saturday’s 30-lap finale. Brown’s victory, his fourth of the season at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, occurred during Friday’s 360 Knoxville Nationals preliminary, leading wire-to-wire after starting third on the feature grid.

A slider through turns three and four sealed Brown’s fate in the 360 Knoxville Nationals preliminary. The Higginsville, Missouri, native kicked-off the program with the ninth-fastest qualifying time, charging from fifth to second in his heat race shortly thereafter.

Although full steam ahead in terms of momentum, Brown’s Capitani Classic effort ended short of the top spot, forced to compete in the second of two B-Mains, which he won, after getting upside-down in his respective heat race. “Blackjack” was scored 24th in the Capitani Classic A-Main.

“Can’t say enough about this Casey’s/FVP team and everyone involved. I feel like if our car’s always like this, if we do our job we can beat anyone in the world,” Brown stated, driver of the Casey’s, FVP, Andy's Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Rowdy Energy, Ditzfeld Transfer, Champion Brands, MC Power, Weld Wheels, Housby, Maxim Chassis, J.D. Welding & Machine, Waldinger, Smiley’s Racing Products, No. 21 sprint car. “We have a big week ahead. Our focus is on Saturday night, but it all starts with our preliminary effort. I’m confident this team has what it needs to be near the front on Saturday night.”

Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with Southern Iowa Speedway’s annual Front Row Challenge on Monday, August 8, followed by the coveted Knoxville Nationals at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Thursday through Saturday, August 10-13; Saturday’s feature will award $175,000-to-win and $10,000-to-start.

Doran-Dyson Racing’s Swanson

Leads All 100 Laps to Win

Rollie Beale Classic USAC Silver Crown Race

At Toledo Speedway Saturday Night

TOLEDO, Ohio, Aug. 7 — For the second year in a row, Kody Swanson won the pole and led all 100 laps of the Hemelgarn Racing/Super Fitness Rollie Beale Classic USAC Silver Crown race at Toledo Speedway. On Saturday night his Doran-Dyson Racing No. 1 sponsored by Henry Repeating Arms, Glenn Farms and Duncan Oil had a 3.114-second lead over Bobby Santos III when he took the checkered flag.

It was the fourth victory in a row and sixth so far in his career at this one-half mile asphalt oval for Swanson, a native of Kingsburg, Calif., who lives in Indianapolis. Going into this race Swanson was tied with the driver this event is named in memory of, Rollie Beale, so now he is the all-time winner of USAC races at Toledo Speedway. Swanson has now led 655 laps out of the 1,000 laps ever run in this series at this particular track.

Swanson has now won the last three USAC Silver Crown races, with six races remaining in the 2022 season. Swanson leads the point standings with 384 points to Logan Seavey’s 366 and C.J. Leary’s 346 as he seeks an unprecedented seventh series championship. He is already the winningest driver in series history. Saturday night’s victory was number 36.

Swanson also leads the series in the number of pole positions won. He earned his 39th Fatheadz Eyewear pole Saturday night with a time of 15.244 seconds, which was 0.017 better than the time set by the second-fastest qualifier, Leary.

With this pole Swanson became the series’ first driver to have at least six pole positions at two different tracks. In addition to Toledo Speedway he has excelled at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park in Brownsburg, Ind.

As the field was forming for the start of the main event, Leary’s car needed assistance to start. That relegated him to the rear of the field for the green flag and put Taylor Ferns in second and Justin Grant in third for the start. As they headed into Turn 1 on the first lap Swanson led with Grant in second, Ferns third, Santos fourth and Seavey fifth, and it stayed that way for the first 41 laps. Swanson had a 1.631-second lead over Grant on lap 40.

Leary had been charging through the field from the rear, and on lap 42 he passed Seavey for fifth place.

At the halfway point Swanson had a 2.104-second lead over Grant, who was followed by Ferns, Santos and Leary. But on lap 56 the event’s only yellow waved, and three of the top-five drivers were involved.

Ferns and Grant made contact, which sent Ferns hard into the wall in Turn 3 and Grant spinning into the infield. She was done for the night, but Grant was able to continue and even got his spot back since he never stopped.

Santos got through the melee but Leary didn’t. He ended up into the Turn 3 wall too, and Travis Welpott joined him there. No one was hurt. Welpott, who was 15th went the accident happened, retired at that point. Leary continued to an 11th-place finish.

The clean-up of the accident took quite a while, with the restart occurring on lap 69 with Swanson in the lead followed by Grant, Santos, Seavey and Russ Gamester.

Swanson was able to rebuild his lead to over 1 second by lap 73. He was 1.5 seconds ahead of Grant on lap 78, and over 2.5 seconds on lap 88 as Grant was busy holding off Santos’s challenges. With 10 laps to go Swanson led by over 3 seconds.

Santos passed Grant for second in Turn 2 on lap 92, but with no other cautions to close the field he remained 3 seconds behind Swanson’s No. 1, which is powered by a Lanci-prepped Ford engine. Swanson won by 3.114 seconds over Santos. Grant finished third followed by Seavey and Gamester.

“Everyone on the Doran Racing team wants to win, and so do I,” said Swanson of Doran Racing, which is based in Lebanon, Ohio. “I’m really fortunate to be with this team.

“I just tried to find a good rhythm, conserve my tires, and stay out of trouble,” he added. “When you have some of the best drivers behind you like I did, it makes you earn it every time.”

The race was streamed live by Flo Racing.

The Doran Racing team is back in action this coming Saturday, Aug. 13, in a 500 Sprint Car Tour race at Berlin Raceway in Marne, Mich. Also on the schedule for August is a USAC Silver Crown race at World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison, Ill., near St. Louis on Aug. 19. All of them will be streamed live on Flo Racing.

Goldesberry Coming Off Two Solid Finishes Heading Into Nationals

Springfield, IL (August 7, 2022) – Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team are coming off to solid finishes with the IRA heading into the 61st Knoxville Nationals.

The first night was at Langlade County Speedway in Antigo, WI. There were 21 cars on hand and Goldesberry would lay down the fourth quickest lap of the night. This would line him up third in the first heat race, the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim would go on to finish third qualifying him for the dashes. Goldesberry would start last in the second dash and pick up one spot finishing fourth. The Rockstar Energy Drink #65 would line up outside the fourth row and go on to finish eighth.

“Antigo was a decent night for us. It was hard to pass and we did the best we could.” said Goldesberry.

On Saturday night, the action moved to Plymouth, WI. With 22 cars checked in, Goldesberry would pick up his first quick time of the year. Goldesberry would start fourth in the first heat and go on to finish third putting him in the dash redraw. Goldesberry would start third in the second dash and pick up one spot to finish second. The Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim would start outside second row of the 30 lap main event and go onto to finish fourth.

“Plymouth was a solid night. It was good to finally get a quick time this year.” said Goldesberry. “We had a good car in the feature and I maybe should have been a little more aggressive early. We will take fourth and get ready for Knoxville.”

Next up for the Rockstar Energy Drink team is the 61st Knoxville Nationals. Goldesberry will qualify on Wednesday night. On Thursday from 3-6pm, the Rockstar Energy Drink car will be at the Knoxville Hy-Vee.

BRODY ROA RETURNS FROM INDIANA SPRINT WEEK IN TIME FOR SANTA MARIA

(Cypress, CA, August 4, 2022) After competing in Indiana Sprint Week for the first time since 2019, California veteran sprint car racer Brody Roa will be right back in action when the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series hits the track this Saturday night, August 6, at the Santa Maria Raceway. Roa will be behind the wheel of the familiar #8M owned by Jason May.


After being shut down due to Covid in 2020, the Santa Maria Raceway, which first hosted racing in 1964, reopened in 2021. However, circumstances that had nothing to do with racing, caused the track to be shuttered a little over a year ago. Much to the dismay of fans and drivers alike, rumors swirled that the popular track was done for good. But persistence by the track operators paid off and the facility roars back to life on Saturday for the first time in 2022.

Like all drivers, Roa was ecstatic to hear the track was reopening. His prowess at Santa Maria has been phenomenal and is second to none in USAC/CRA competition there since 2017. In the seven series races at the San Luis Obispo County 1/3 mile oval over the last five seasons, the affable Garden Grove, California racer has only finished worse than second two times. One of those results was a third-place finish. His other five appearances produced three wins and two second-place outcomes.

Saturday’s race will be Roa’s first time back in May’s car since a pair of races at Central Arizona Speedway on the second week in February. At the first night of action at the track located in Casa Grande, Roa had a good size lead when his car started running out of fuel in the waning laps. He ended up with a frustrating fifth-place finish. Twenty-four hours later he placed second at the same venue.

Indiana Sprint Week consisted of eight races in nine days. One of the races, the Terre Haute Action Track, was rained out. Another at the Lawrenceburg Speedway was rained out just before the main event. In seven nights of competition in the “Hoosier State,” Roa, 31, qualified for the main four times. Racing against the toughest fields of the year, the mains he qualified for were at Lawrenceburg (the rainout), Circle City Speedway in Indianapolis, Bloomington Speedway, and the Tri-State Speedway.

“Well we’re finally home from Indiana Sprint Week,” Roa told his Facebook followers on Monday. “So glad to get home to my girls, my wife Tailor, and our daughter Addi. That was a long two weeks away. Our Sprint Week I feel was pretty solid even though the end results don’t show so much. Poor qualifying efforts on the driver’s end, as usual, set us way back for the rest of the night. Any feature we missed was by one or two spots after coming from deep in the semi or C main. A huge thank you to all of the people that made this trip possible and my amazing wife for holding down the fort at home. I know it wasn’t easy.”

For fans who would like to see what Roa and the #8M can do on Saturday, the gates will open at 4:00 p.m. with racing at 6:00. Santa Maria Raceway is located at 1900 Hutton Road in Nipomo (93444).

Roa will get a week off before returning to action in the California Racer’s Hall of Fame Night at Perris Auto Speedway on August 20th. That night will feature $1,000.00 for the fast qualifier, $2,000.00 to win the trophy dash, and over $5,000.00 in main event lap money.

In 2022, Roa will race USAC/CRA, USAC National, and other select events, in his #91R BR Performance/HD Industries Eagle. He will also drive the #8M for May Motorsports in select USAC West Coast events. The 2019 USAC Southwest and 2017 USAC West Coast champion is always open to discussing other driving opportunities.

Roa and the team want to thank the following sponsors for making the 2022 season possible. HD Industries, Burris Racing, Sander Engineering, Inland Rigging, Caltrol, “Biker” Bruce Fischer, Competition Suspension, ALR Virtual Services, K-1 Race Gear, Molecule, Rod End Supply, Driven Racing Oil, Baldwin Filters, and NGK Spark Plugs. In addition, the veteran driver offers thanks to RDM Mechanics, Fastenal, Coopers Propane, Ten West Towing, Ten West Environmental, TJM Distribution, and Westco International for sponsoring the #8M he will pilot for Jayson May on 10 occasions in 2022.

If you or your company would like to jump on board and receive recognition as a team partner throughout the 2022 racing season, please give the two-time USAC champion racer a phone call or drop him a note at the contact information on the top of this release.

Henderson and Sandvig Riding Momentum Heading into the Cappy and Knoxville Nationals

Knoxville, IA – August 5, 2022

by Justin Snyder, Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Justin Henderson continued to build momentum behind the wheel of the Mike Sandvig Motorsports No. 7 410 Sprint Car as he picked up a 12th place finish with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday and an eighth-place result at Huset’s Speedway on Sunday in regional competition.

With the upcoming Knoxville Nationals weekend on the horizon, the solid effort against stout competition has Henderson feeling confident about the direction of their program and their chances of being in the running come next week.

“We were fast out the gate one night and not so fast out the gate on another night, so it’s really hard to know what was right or wrong about the car,” said Henderson. “But we’ve definitely turned a corner since bringing back our old Maxim, so I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do here the next few weeks.”

Henderson began the evening by timing in 32nd quickest out of 55 cars in attendance with a fastest lap of 16.537 seconds during qualifying. He then advanced one position in a heat race to finish fifth and narrowly missed qualifying for the A-main by one position. As a result, he had to run the B-main, where he passed three cars to finish second and locked himself into the feature event.

“We didn’t qualify really well and had to work ourselves out of a hole,” said Henderson. “Anytime you must start in the back of a heat race you are really at a disadvantage. Throw in the number of cars there and the quality of those cars and you’ve got your hands full.”

Lining up from the 22nd starting position, Henderson knew he had an uphill battle ahead of him. However, he remained persistent and steadily worked his way forward to take the checkered flag in the 12th position. The 10 spots gained were good enough to earn the night’s hard charger award and he was also given the persistence award as well for the effort.

“The car was really racy in the feature, and we were kind of committed to the bottom and the car felt really good,” he said. “It’s hard to pass cars in this sport with the way these cars are, so to gain that much ground with the competition we had makes you feel good”

The team headed to Huset’s Speedway on Sunday and Henderson unloaded fast off the trailer as he qualified first among 24 cars in attendance to earn the night’s fast time award. He followed that up by advancing two positions in a heat race to finish second and earned the seventh starting position for the A-main following a re-draw.

With the leaders setting a quick pace, Henderson struggled during the A-main to make up any ground. He dropped backwards one position to finish in eighth, which was good enough for his 15th top ten finish of the season.

“I felt like the first couple laps in the feature were not up to par and that set the tone for us,” he said. “After that we were just kind of making laps and trying to stay clean. It wasn’t a bad night by any means, but also nothing special.”

Next up for the duo will be a trip to Knoxville Raceway on Sunday for the 11th Annual Capitani Classic, paying $9000 to win. This will be the final tune-up event for the duo as they’re set to compete next week in the famed Knoxville Nationals beginning Wednesday night.

“I think the Cappy is a race that we can really get some momentum going and I think it’ll be a good sign of how our Nationals will be,” said Henderson. “The format fits us well and I obviously know my way around Knoxville. We’re looking to kind of make a statement and now is as good of a time as ever to get rolling and I’m excited.”

Lorain's Bob Frey Classic Honors a Sprint Car Legend

HOLLY, Mich. (Aug. 5, 2022) – Saturday night’s Bob Frey Classic at Ohio’s Lorain Raceway Park will be a fitting festival of speed for its illustrious namesake.
The event at the third-mile paved oval, headlined by the Must See Racing Engine Pro Sprint Car Series, pays homage to legendary sprint car driver Frey. A native of nearby Elyria, Ohio, Frey was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum in June, and his accolades are nothing short of stellar.
Frey is a five-time winner of the Lucas Oil Little 500 for non-winged sprint cars, held annually at Anderson (Ind.) Speedway, and also took home four Copper World Classic sprint car trophies from Arizona’s Phoenix Raceway over a seven-year span in the 1980s as well.
Now living in Wickenburg, Ariz., Frey began his driving career at Lorain in 1970, first competing in entry-level stock cars there called “Rat Racers” before moving toward open-wheel racing several years later.
“It’s fitting that this race will be at Lorain,” Frey told the Wickenburg Sun in February, shortly after news of the Bob Frey Classic was first publicized. “I started racing there in 1970 and, in those days, you had to be 21 (to race) or have your parents sign a waiver. I was only 20, but my dad was all for it. My mom was reluctant to sign that waiver. … I remember going out there as a six- or seven-year-old kid (early on) watching the races with my dad.
“I was surprised (when the race was announced), but I’m very pleased with it all,” Frey noted. “Having an inaugural Bob Frey Classic at the track I started out (racing) at in my hometown? That, in itself, is another honor.”
Once Frey transitioned to the supermodified and sprint car ranks, he quickly became a force to be reckoned with, thanks to local Ohio car owners Ernie Ensign and Urbie Durnwald. However, Frey is most known for his stint driving for fellow Hall of Famer Glen Niebel, in Niebel’s iconic yellow No. 20 machine.
Together, Niebel and Frey won the sprint car portion of the Copper World Classic in 1981, ’82, ’85 and ’87, four consecutive Little 500s from 1987-’90, and nearly every major pavement sprint car event that the sport had to offer during the decade.
They teamed together for 13 years before Frey retired from racing after the 1993 season to focus on his business pursuits – most notably, owning and operating two Arizona mortuaries for many years.
Becoming a funeral director or mortician was something that Frey had looked into shortly after he first began racing, but his eyes were set on the Indy car circuit (now the NTT IndyCar Series) at that time.
After failed attempts to qualify for the Indianapolis 500 in both 1981 and ’82, Frey returned to sprint cars and proceeded to build a Hall of Fame resume over the 11 years that followed.
“In my early 20s, like so many people did and still do in that world, I had dreams of becoming an established Indy 500 driver,” Frey recalled. “When I knew that Indy car racing (opportunities) wouldn’t materialize like I hoped for, I went back to mortuary school, studied, and became a mortician.
“Everybody said, ‘I can’t believe you’re going to be a mortician,’ and I used to joke that I’d pass out some business cards to those guys … and maybe it would make them lighten up on the right foot a bit.”
Now, after some time away, Frey will return to the racing world this weekend to serve as the grand marshal for the race named in his honor. He’ll participate in a pre-race meet and greet, sign autographs for fans, and participate in the night’s post-race trophy presentations.
Must See Racing will also donate $500 to Steadfast for Veterans, a non-profit organization which provides housing for veterans in need that supports the winged sprint car tour, in Frey’s honor.
“This weekend’s Bob Frey Classic will showcase the best pavement sprint car drivers from across the country, and for many years, Bob Frey was considered one of the best pavement sprint car drivers that the sport had to offer,” said Must See Racing founder and owner Jim Hanks. “To have Bob join us for the event this weekend, signing autographs for the fans, is an honor and will help to enhance what we hope will be a spectacular night of racing and fan entertainment at Lorain Raceway Park.”
Saturday’s Bob Frey Classic at Lorain Raceway Park, featuring the Jerry Caryer Memorial 40 for the Must See Racing Engine Pro Sprint Car Series, will be streamed live through SPEED SPORT TV as a SPEED SPORT Spotlight Event, offered free to active SPEED SPORT TV subscribers.
Subscriptions to SPEED SPORT TV start at just $14.99/month or $99/year.

CJB Motorsports set to unveil new look for Knoxville Nationals featuring TrueTimber’s Strata camo pattern

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

CARLISLE, Pa. (August 5, 2022) - World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Rookie of the Year contenders, CJB Motorsports and Spencer Bayston, will roll into the historic Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, with not only the desire to win, but with an all-new look, boasting TrueTimber’s ever-popular Strata camo pattern, which will make its official debut when the Carlisle, Pennsylvania-based motorsports operation competes in their respective Knoxville Nationals qualifying program on Thursday, August 11.

The coveted Knoxville Nationals, awarding a total purse pushing the brink of one million dollars including a top prize equaling $175,000 in the weekend finale, will take over Knoxville Raceway headlines on Wednesday through Saturday, August 10-13. Over 100 of the world’s greatest sprint car drivers will compete in the 61st running of the prestigious program, all of whom chasing one of 24 spots in Saturday’s 50-lap A-Main.

“Everyone here at CJB Motorsports are excited to reveal the second in a series of special paint schemes for our iconic partner TrueTimber Camo,” Chad Clemens, owner of CJB Motorsports, expressed. “CJB Motorsports has a rich history at the Knoxville Nationals with not only great performances, but exciting paint schemes. With our entire team being outdoorsmen and avid hunters, we could not be prouder to promote the best retailing camo brand on our cars.”

The decision to feature TrueTimber’s Strata camo pattern coincides with the approaching fall hunting seasons, as Strata is featured on an array of hunting apparel including gloves, pants, and outerwear.

“We really love the look of the new car design, and we can’t wait to see it unveiled in front of all the fans in Knoxville,” said TrueTimber CEO Rusty Sellars. “Spencer quickly got us on the board in the World of Outlaws with his win at Huset’s during the car’s initial debut and it’s been exciting to see his success and momentum grow in the series. As we shift our focus from fishing to hunting, it only made sense to update the car with our most popular hunting camo pattern.”

As noted, Bayston’s initial TrueTimber debut was in winning fashion, scoring a $10,000 payday at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, on Wednesday, June 22; the Lebanon, Indiana, native went on to finish 14th in the weekend’s $100,000-to-win Huset’s High Bank Nationals finale.

ON DECK: Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports will continue their 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with the annual Ironman 55 at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Missouri, on Friday and Saturday, August 5-6. The two-day showcase will award $8,000 on Friday and $20,000 on Saturday; Saturday’s finale will go 55-laps in distance.

Priority Aviation King of the Hill Will Have Different Look at 27th Annual Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge pres. by The Rayce Rudeen Foundation and Country Builders Const.

(PETERSEN MEDIA)- With all eyes in sprint car racing turning their attention to Southern Iowa Speedweeks, the format for the Priority Aviation King of the Hill event at Monday night’s Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge pres. by The Rayce Rudeen Foundation and Country Builders Const. has been released; and in short it is a simple foot race with a $3000 purse on the line.

“Unfortunately, the Sprint Car world has been riddled with a tire shortage from coast to coast, and we were unsure if we would even be able to have the race at all in 2022,” Terry McCarl said. “Fortunately, we have confirmation from Hoosier Tire that our 410ci competitors will be able to get their hands on one tire on the night of the event, but that forced us to get creative with our format. Our typical Priority Aviation King of the Hill format will be supplemented with a footrace by the qualifying drivers to save tires, as well as laps on their cars and engines. We think this will be a great thing for the fans, and we think the drivers will have fun with this, and we are hopeful to return to the normal format in 2023.”

In years past, fans have been treated to bracket style group races where eight cars are broken up into two four car brackets where the top two in each race move into the final four event as they set the first two rows of the $21,000-to-win Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge pres. by the Rayce Rudeen Foundation and Country Builders Const. feature event, and the four drivers who do not advance will make up rows three and four.

Fast forward to 2022, and this year’s Priority Aviation King of the Hill will still have the same format, however, rather than drivers running their cars around the Southern Iowa Speedway, fans will be treated to a total of three 40 yard dashes on foot to set the first four rows of the feature event, and the winner will take home $1500, while the runner up takes home $500, third place $300, fourth place $250 and the four cars that don’t reach the finals each pocket $100.

“As a team we had a few ideas for this event, and with our race being lighthearted and fan friendly, we thought this was the best solution for the given circumstances,” McCarl added. “I hope our drivers buy into it this year, and I hope the fans enjoy this unique experience at the track.”

Front Row Challenge Ent. would like to thank Sage Fruit Co., Rayce Rudeen Foundation, Country Builders Construction, SeaFoam Motor Treatment, DeBerg Concrete, J.G. Enterprises, Priority Aviation, Oskaloosa True Value, HRP, KSE, Willwood, Snap-On, Saldana Tanks, Hoosier Tire, Housby, Kraig Ford, McKay Group Insurance, Taso’s Steak House, Octane Ink, Hoseheads, Skin Fusion FX, All Star, Speedway Motors, and Doll Distributing for their support of this year’s event.

General Admission ticket prices are as follows and are currently available at www.oskychallenges.com, or by calling our office 515-957-0020- Adults $30 and Kids 12 and under $15.

Reserved Seating prices are Adults $35 and Kids 12 and under $15, and these can only be purchased by calling the office at 515-957-0020.

Infield Party Passes are $20 if purchased in advance or $25 on race day, while kids 12 and under are just $5.

TAFOYA CONTINUES USAC/CRA SEASON SATURDAY AT SANTA MARIA

(Chino, CA, August 4, 2022) Eddie Tafoya Jr. returns to the cockpit of his gorgeous #51T sprint car this Saturday night, August 6th, for the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series race at the Santa Maria Raceway. It will be his first time back in the car since three nights of action at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota in early July.

Tafoya, who recently celebrated his 25th birthday while racing in the Midwest, comes into Saturday’s race with a head of steam in the USAC/CRA Series. The Chino Hills, California racer is currently fourth in the series standings and is only 39-points out of third place. In addition, he trails the second-place driver by 68-points.

The 2019 USAC/CRA Rookie of the Year is having his best season to date. His recent appearances at Huset’s drew the attention and praise from longtime Midwest fans. He racked up his first ever USAC/CRA top-10 finish, a 10th on July 9th. One night later, the friendly driver weaved his way from fifth to the front and captured his first ever USAC National checkered flag in his qualifier. A few moments after that he continued to impress the crowd in the 40-lap finale by racing his way up to second against the best drivers in the world and staying there for six laps. A slap against the wall saw him drop back later in the race, but he clearly showed he belonged with the best in the nation.

On the home front, in his last six USAC/CRA races, Tafoya has only finished out of the top five two times. Those two finishes were both eighth places and both came at Perris Auto Speedway. The other four results include a third place, a fourth, and two fifth-place finishes.

Last year USAC/CRA paid one visit to Santa Maria. That came on July 3rd and Tafoya qualified sixth fastest of the 22 cars on hand. He followed that up with a sixth-place finish in his 10-lap heat. The then 24-year-old racer started the 30-lap main in ninth and moved forward for a sixth-place finish.

Two years ago the series never made it to Santa Maria due to COVID. In 2019, when Tafoya was the series rookie of the year, he contested his first two races on the San Luis Obispo County track. The then newcomer scored 11th in 18th place finishes in those events.

Be sure to check out Tafoya’s brand new YouTube channel at the following link https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxgMCW64p0uyBmOcKN7_bDQ.

For fans who would like to catch Tafoya at the reopening of the Santa Maria Raceway on Saturday, gates will open at 4:00 p.m. with racing at 6:00. The track is located at 1900 Hutton Road in Nipomo (93444).

If you or your company would like to be a part of the Specialty Fastener team’s 2022 season effort, please contact Eddie Tafoya Jr. via phone at (909) 393-3999 or by e-mail at teamtafoya@aol.com. He will be happy to talk to you and lay out the team’s 2022 plans.

RENWAY ENERGY PRESENTS KIDSRACE CNAF NIGHT AND CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST THIS WEEK AT OHSWEKEN

By Tommy Goudge

The Mini Stocks return after a week off with Tyler Lafantaisie in command by 108 points over his nearest challenger in the championship standings.

Reinhardt Set for Knoxville’s 360 Nationals, Capitani Classic and 410 Nationals
Knoxville, IA – August 4, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

The annual summertime break in the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions schedule is upon us, which means it is time for the 360 Sprint Car Nationals, Capitani Classic and 410 Sprint Car Nationals at ‘The Sprint Car Capital of the World’, Knoxville Raceway in the heart of Southern Iowa.

In 2021, Kyle Reinhardt earned the 360 Nationals Rookie of the Year, and he is back to compete again this year in the Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91.

Reinhardt will qualify on Thursday, August 4th and the finale of the three day event takes place on Saturday, August 6th.

“I’m looking forward to the 360 Nationals. It’s a fun event on its own but it also gives us valuable track time that can help us next week too.”, Reinhardt commented. “There are over 100 cars entered. Our goal is to make the A-main.”

The following day, Reinhardt will go back to 410 sprint car racing in the Capitani Classic, honoring Knoxville’s longtime promotor, Ralph Capitani.

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team tentatively have the Front Row Challenge race at Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, IA on the schedule for Monday, August 8th. A decision will be made regarding that event following Sunday night’s race at Knoxville.

Tuesday, August 9th, will be an off day to make final preparations for the 61st NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals.

The 410 Nationals kick off on Wednesday when over 50 drivers, including Reinhardt, qualify. Another 50 drivers will get their shot to qualify the following night.

“Obviously the key to the Nationals is a good qualifying night, especially time trials.”, Reinhardt said. “Last year we were okay on Wednesday, fought back on Friday and made it to the B-main on Saturday, so if we can get our week off on the right foot this year, we can be in position to improve on that.“

Friday night, which is dubbed ‘Hard Knox Night’, gives teams their final chance to tally points and improve their positioning for the series of mains that are conducted on the final day of the four day event on Saturday, August 13th.

Prior to turning his focus to the national events at Knoxville, Reinhardt competed in the final two ASCoC events at I-70 Speedway in Odessa, Missouri and Knoxville.

July 29: Event / I-70 Speedway / Odessa, MO

[28 cars, Qualifying 17th, Heat 5th (6), A-main 25th (15)]

Night number one of two scheduled nights at I-70 Speedway was washed out by rain. Night two brought 28 teams pit-side for the $26,000 to win Rayce Rudeen Foundation race.

Reinhardt’s night got off to an average start with a lap that placed him 17th quick in the field. While he was not able to make the gains he needed to put himself inside the top ten in the starting lineup for the night’s finale, he was able to transfer into the A-main through his heat race with a 5th place finish despite engine issues that had been present since the start of the night.

From his 15th starting spot in the 25-lap A-main, Reinhardt held his ground for the opening five circuits, but the engine issues were persistent and getting worse. He slipped down the running order several spots and was forced to retire from the event after fourteen laps.

“I want to thank everyone at Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants for supporting us. Their headquarters is in Clinton, MO not far from here. We had them on the wing tonight. I wish we could’ve gotten a better finish for them.”

July 30: Event / Knoxville Raceway / Knoxville, IA

[55 cars, Qualifying 8th in Group B, Heat 8th (8),

C-main 2nd (2), B-main 15th (18), A-main 23rd (26)]

The desire to get some final track time at Knoxville Raceway before the Nationals drew 55 cars to compete for the $8,000 winner’s share.

Despite having his engine issues solved from the night before, Reinhardt struggled to find speed, qualifying 8th in his group. His heat race appeared to be going his way early on but during some tight competition he was forced high and lost momentum, which is critical at Knoxville. The end result was an 8th place finish and a trip to the C-main.

He went on to finish 2nd in the C-main and advance to the B-main where he gained three spots to post a 15th place finish.

For only the second time this season, Reinhardt leveraged a series provisional to join the A-main field in an effort to make adjustments and get more laps to find some solutions to the team’s issues. He finished the night in 23rd.

Kody Hartlaub Working Through Challenging Stretch

Williams Grove and Lincoln on the Docket This Weekend

Abbottstown, PA – August 4, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Kody Hartlaub came out of the gate firing on all cylinders in 2022. For the first three months of the season, he consistently ran near the front of the field and seemed to be on the verge of winning.

Then came the month of July and things suddenly got a little harder. Hartlaub has the right mindset though. This is the challenge that will make him and his team better.

July 9: Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

[30 cars, Heat 7th (5), B-main 5th (8), A-main 12th (24)]

Another solid field of 30 cars signed in for 358 sprint car competition at Lincoln Speedway on July 9th. Kody Hartlaub was among them and looking to continue or better his recent success at the Pigeon Hills oval. He finished 2nd in both June events and was seeking his first victory of 2022.

Uncharacteristically, Hartlaub slid backwards in his 8-lap heat race. With the top five finishers moving on to the A-main and the East Berlin, PA resident starting 5th, it seemed a foregone conclusion he would advance, but it didn’t play out that way. A bad start shuffled Hartlaub to 7th, and he never recovered.

Hartlaub found himself in the B-main for the first time this season in 358 sprint car competition. He started 8th and needed to find his way to the top four to transfer to the feature. He surged into 5th by lap two but could never mount a challenge for a transfer spot.

Good fortune came Hartlaub’s way when, as the first alternate, he was added to the A-main lineup in 24th when one competitor scratched from the event.

Hartlaub did not waste the opportunity. He methodically navigated his way through the field, breaking inside the top 20 on lap thirteen, then proceeding to blast his way to 12th over the final seven circuits. He received the Hard Charger award for his efforts and salvaged what could have been a devastating points night in the process.

“Seemed like anything that could’ve gone wrong did tonight. We were a little tight in hot laps and tried to loosen up a little for the heat race, but then we had a bleeder issue in our heat race, so it was hard to tell if our adjustments helped the car.“, Hartlaub shared. “The way all of that played out, we didn’t get to really work on the setup much for the B-main.”

“We missed the A-main transfer by one spot but were able to get in as the first alternate, so we definitely had some luck there. The track was heavier than usual tonight, so we were working to adjust to that for the feature. We finally got the car to where it was happy, and I was able to go from 24th to 12th and get the Hard Charger. I guess you could say we managed to turn lemons into lemonade tonight.“

July 15: Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

[27 cars, Heat 8th (8), B-main 3rd (6), A-main 13th (21)]

Hartlaub’s Brewer Home Improvements / Moose Blocks / Smith Titanium / SRR Engines / Siegel Racing / T and N Solutions / Jason Emlet Iron Valley Real Estate / Bigham Appraisals / Pretzel Boy / HAAS Shocks / C.H. Folk & Son Feeds / Chop Designs / Herr Electric, Hartlaub Racing No.2 was among 27 cars entered at Williams Grove Speedway on July 15th.

The field was set to compete in three 8-lap heat races, lined up using the track’s handicap system. The top six finishers would advance to the main event, with the top four participating in the redraw for their starting spot in the first six rows.

Hartlaub’s night got off to a tough start once again. He was unable to move forward from his 8th starting spot and landed in the B-main for the second time in a week.

In the 8-lap consolation race, Hartlaub was able to secure a transfer spot. He drove from his 6th starting spot to a 3rd place finish.

The 20-lap A-main again turned out to be the most positive portion of Hartlaub’s night. Starting deep in the field in 21st, he steadily fought his way forward and brought home a 13th place finish.

Scheduled races at Lincoln Speedway on July 16th and Williams Grove Speedway on July 29th were both cancelled, the former due to tire shortages and the latter due to weather.

July 30: Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

[31 cars, Heat 3rd (2), A-main 7th (12)]

For what felt like the first time this season, Hartlaub had a little luck in the pill draw. With 31 cars on hand, he drew a pill that put him outside the front row for his heat race. The top five finishers would advance to the A-main, but it was the top two spots that were valuable because a finish there put a driver in the handicap for a starting spot in the first four rows of the finale.

Unfortunately, Hartlaub lost the runner-up spot to Nash Ely on lap three and wound up 3rd when the checkered flag dropped on the 10-lap race.

“It was frustrating to start on the front row of the heat and not make a handicap spot. That one’s on me. I made a mistake.”, a disappointed Hartlaub shared.

All Hartlaub could do was take his lumps and make the most of 12th starting spot in the 20-lap A-main. July had been a tough month for him and his team, but if there was one bright spot, they were always able to move forward in the feature and make the best of a rough night.

It wasn’t an earth-shattering run in the finale Saturday night, but Hartlaub did gain five spots to crack the top ten with a 7th place finish.

Hartlaub was ready to turn the page from July. As the calendar turned to August this week, the team was back in their shop working hard to right the ship.

“We’ve been struggling the last few races, so we went over everything on the car. We found a couple small things and addressed them, plus we’ve talked a lot about getting better at reading the track. That’s something I need to work on. We’re looking forward to getting back to the track this weekend to put the car and ourselves to the test.“, Hartlaub said.

“It’s been a challenging stretch, but it’s times like these that push you and make you better. It has refocused all of us on details.“

Up Next

Friday night, August 5th, Hartlaub will head to Williams Grove Speedway for a first-of-its-kind Match Race for the 358 sprint cars, offering a total purse of over $20,000. Per Williams Grove’s website, the much anticipated Match Race, including matched sponsorship funds from the speedway, will go 25-laps in distance while paying $2,021 to win and $696 to start.

The following night Kody will be back at Lincoln Speedway for York County Racing Club night and another regular show for the 358 sprint cars.

Paul McMahan returns home to cap Sprint Car career at Placerville Speedway August 27th

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…California native and former World of Outlaws regular Paul McMahan will return to Placerville Speedway on August 27th and make his final career Sprint Car start back home where it all started.

It’s only fitting that McMahan makes his last call during “Legends Night” at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds facility. The 51-year-old driver began his Winged 410 Sprint Car career at Placerville Speedway in 1987 and captured his first main event win shortly after in June of that year.

The 1995 NARC Speedweek champion is set to climb back aboard the familiar Tri-C Machine No. 3c for his last start on August 27th. “This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while now,” commented McMahan, who possesses 27 career World of Outlaws victories. “I knew that Placerville Speedway was where I wanted to finish things up at once I was ready. Placerville is where I cut my teeth in a Sprint Car and got my first win at. I look forward to seeing everybody out there. It’s going to be a special night for our family.”

Originally from Elk Grove, California McMahan began his racing career successfully in Quarter Midgets from an early age, before making the jump to Sprint Cars. During his time competing in California, he finished runner up in the Northern Auto Racing Club standings on two occasions, and once piloted Clyde Lamar’s Tri-C Machine to three consecutive wins at Calistoga Speedway, leading 90 straight laps in the process.

Always known as a strong qualifier, he was also voted the 1995 Driver of the Year by the Motorsports Press Association. McMahan tallied a NARC win at Placerville Speedway that same season aboard the Lamar No. 3c Sprint Car.

“We’re excited to have Paul McMahan finish off his racing career at Placerville Speedway during Legends Night,” said Promoter Scott Russell. “What Paul has done in his career from racing out here in California, to his many seasons with the World of Outlaws has been impressive. The McMahan family has been such a big part of the Sprint Car scene and we look forward to hosting #PaulsLastCall on August 27th.”

Legends Night has become one of the more anticipated events of the season and this year also doubles as the championship finale at the Placerville bullring. The Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Cars, Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks, BCRA Lightning Sprints and Vintage Hard Tops will all tackle the red clay at the spectacle. It is also the final tune-up prior to the “Nor*Cal Posse Shootout” double header on Labor Day weekend.

Adult tickets for Legends Night on Saturday August 27th cost $18 while seniors 62+, military and juniors 12-17 will be $16. Kids 6-11 cost $8, while ages 5 and under are free. Purchase tickets online at https://www.eventsprout.com/event/points-race-16 or at the gate on race day.

Grandstand seating is general admission at each event, except for the reserved seats marked for season ticket holders. Please note if patrons sit in a reserved seat, they may be asked to move. Pit passes can be purchased at the pit gate or on Pit Pay to take advantage of the expanded seating area on the hill. For those who can’t make it Flo Racing will be providing live coverage.

The pit gate will open at noon, with the front grandstand gate opening at 3pm. Happy Hour is offered when the gates open until 6pm in the grandstands featuring live music along with discounted Coors Light and Coors Original at the beer booth. The pit meeting will be held at 4:30pm with cars on track at 5:15. Hot laps, ADCO Driveline qualifying and racing will follow.

"Jerry Caryer 40" Holds Special Significance For MSR At Bob Frey Classic

HOLLY, Mich. (Aug. 4, 2022) – Saturday’s Must See Racing Engine Pro Sprint Car Series headliner during the Bob Frey Classic at Lorain Raceway Park will be a meaningful tribute to a longtime and departed supporter of the winged pavement sprint car tour.
The 40-lap feature at the third-mile oval will be named in honor of late veteran driver Jerry Caryer, who passed away unexpectedly on Aug. 15, 2020, just hours before he was scheduled to compete in a Must See Racing event at Lorain.
In the middle of a 45-year career in racing, Caryer began transitioning from dirt to pavement sprint cars in 2000 before moving exclusively to pavement racing in 2005. He ran parts of every Must See Racing season from the tour’s inception in 2010 until his passing two years ago and finished as the runner-up in series points in 2016 – his best showing with the traveling circuit.
“I had a lot of fun racing and that’s what it’s about for me,” Caryer said just two weeks before his passing, ahead of his final Must See Racing start on Aug. 8, 2020, at Wisconsin’s Golden Sands Speedway. “That was always my goal, to keep racing as long as I’m having fun.”
Caryer finished sixth in that final race, one of his best results in several years with Must See Racing.
His hometown of Ney, Ohio, is just two hours west of Lorain Raceway Park, making this weekend’s Bob Frey Classic the perfect event to honor Caryer’s legacy and career at.
“There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t miss Jerry Caryer and the impact and perseverance that he brought to our pit area,” reflected Must See Racing founder and owner Jim Hanks. “He was one of the fiercest budget racers that I had the pleasure of watching and, even if he had to stretch a few dollars to get from race to race, you knew any time he was in the pit area that he was going to give it everything he had that night to earn the best possible finish that he could.
“I was looking around the pits during our last race at Berlin (Raceway) and got a little choked up thinking about Jerry,” Hanks added. “I know he’d be proud to see how the series has continued to grow over the past few seasons and would be right here alongside us, still having fun, if he could be. This weekend’s race is in his memory and we hope to put on an entertaining show in his memory and for all those that we’ve lost over the years.”
After Caryer’s passing, Must See Racing officials created the Jerry Caryer Ironman Award, a perpetual honor first awarded at the 2021 season banquet that recognizes the driver who competed in the most Must See Racing sprint car features over the preceding five seasons.
Prior to his death, Caryer had raced in the most Must See Racing main events from 2016-‘20.
Saturday’s Bob Frey Classic at Lorain Raceway Park, featuring the Jerry Caryer 40 for the Must See Racing Engine Pro Sprint Car Series, will be streamed live through SPEED SPORT TV as a SPEED SPORT Spotlight Event, offered free to active SPEED SPORT TV subscribers.
Subscriptions to SPEED SPORT TV start at just $14.99/month or $99/year.
For more information on Must See Racing, visit the sanctioning body’s website at www.mustseeracing.com.

 

FRIESEN TO WHEEL KINGPIN FARMS 360 SPRINT CAR FOR BURGER BARN RACING AT OHSWEKEN

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (August 4, 2022) – NASCAR Truck Series star and Canadian racing sensation Stewart Friesen will perform double duty at Ohsweken Speedway later this month. The Niagara-on-the-Lake native will drive for one of Ohsweken Speedway’s elite teams – Burger Barn Racing – in the 360 Sprint Car division when he gets behind the wheel of the Kingpin Farms entry for two nights of racing on Monday, August 15 and Tuesday, August 16.

The event is historic as it features NASCAR Canada’s first venture into dirt track racing, and the car was leading in Ohsweken Speedway’s season championship until driver Ryan Turner vacated the ride last month.

“We are thrilled to have Stewart Friesen get behind the wheel of one of our cars,” said Burger Barn Racing team owner Jason Hill. “He is a world class racer, and we are confident the equipment will meet his expectations.”

Hill is one of the speedway’s prominent team owners, fielding as many as six entries in various divisions at Ohsweken Speedway in recent years. Two of his current drivers are Jamie Turner and Cory Turner, and the Friesen family goes back decades racing with them.

“I’m excited to come back to Ohsweken Speedway,” said Friesen. “I’ve always raced well there, and it’s great that the event fits into my schedule.”

Friesen’s grandfather Stan Friesen raced against Cory Turner’s grandfather Don Turner on the dirt tracks of the Golden Horseshoe and Western New York. The Friesen and Turner names are synonymous with dirt racing in the region.

Burger Barn will present the 17th Running of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals on Monday, August 15, featuring the Pinty’s Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car series and Action Sprint Tour Crate Sprint Car series fueled by Pinty’s, plus the NASCAR Pinty’s Series Hot Lap Dash serves as an added attraction. The Pinty’s 100 for the NASCAR Pinty’s Series is the feature attraction on Tuesday, August 16, plus the Knights of Thunder Sprint Cars and Action Sprint Tour are also on the program.

Friesen will compete in both NASCAR events and both 360 Sprint Car events, and success at Ohsweken is something he expects.

“Stewart made history when he won the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series race here years ago,” said Ohsweken Speedway General Manager Clinton Geoffrey. “We believe he could put his name in the record books once again in any of the races he will attempt this month.”

Jeff Halligan Struggles on Tough Night at Port Royal
Port Royal, PA – August 4, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Jeff Halligan unloaded the Risser Motorsports No.45 at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night feeling pretty good about his chances to grab his share of the $60,000 total purse on the line for the Living Legends Dream Race, and he had every reason to.

He was coming off a 6th place run there against the World of Outlaws just ten days before, plus he had two wins this season at the Juniata County half-mile in the Risser Motorsports / TheTreeCenter.com / Victory Auto of Lewistown / EMM Sales & Service / Jake’s Golf Carts / Pine Hill Trailers / Keystone Ag Spraying, entry.

July 30: Living Legends Dream Race / Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

[27 cars, Qualifying 17th, Heat 4th (6), A-main #1 16th (11), A-main #2 21st (16)]

The format for the 16th annual event took on a slightly new look for 2022. The PA Speedweek time trial and heat race format would be used to set the lineup for the first of two twin 20-lap features. The lineup for the second feature would be based on the finishing order of the first race but would use an inversion of either the top 4, 6 or 8 finishers in the first race. The inversion pill would be drawn by the winner of the first feature.

Halligan has been strong all season at Port Royal, but his qualifying lap left him 17th in the field of 27 cars. He would have to make some moves in his heat race to begin working his way back toward the front of the starting field for the first feature.

Three 8-lap heat races were on the car, with the top six finishers from each transferring to the first feature. The top two finishers would take part in a redraw to set their spot among the first three rows.

Halligan took the first step toward battling back from his qualifying deficit by advancing from his 6th starting spot in heat number two to finish 4th. While it wasn’t a redraw spot, it did set him up to start 11th in the first feature. From there he could hopefully climb his way into one of the inversion spots.

At the drop of the green on the first 20-lap A-main, Halligan didn’t have the car he needed to surge forward, so he settled into a rhythm, searched for a line that worked and waited for things to come to him.

It never materialized. Instead, Halligan slipped back to 16th by the time the checkered fell on the first main event. The Risser Motorsports crew used the ten minute break to make adjustments that would hopefully help Jeff rally in the second 20-lap main event.

This particular Saturday night just wasn’t coming together for Halligan and his team. The changes didn’t help, and he fell a few more spots in the running order. With seven laps remaining, Halligan retired from the race and was credited with 21st officially.

“Nothing is ever easy in this deal. If you think you have it figured out, you don’t.”, Halligan said.

“We’ve been pretty consistent this year because we have a good baseline for our cars. It just didn’t work tonight. We’ll go over the car and make sure everything is good, but we just need to keep working hard and figure out how to make the right adjustments when we need to.“

Up Next

Jeff and the Risser Motorsports team will be aiming to return to form at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night August 6th when ‘The Speed Palace’ hosts a regular show for 410 sprint cars, super late models and 305 sprint cars.

Austin Hartmann earns hard charger honors, two top-15 showings in IRA Antigo-Plymouth doubleheader

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 3, 2022 – The gradual building process continued to take shape for 410 Winged Sprint Car rookie Austin Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing team with a pair of steady performances in Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series competition at Langlade County Speedway in Antigo, Wis. on Friday, July 29 and at the Plymouth, Wis.-based team's home track at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 30.

The IRA doubleheader weekend opened with the team's first trip north to the big, wide, half-mile Langlade County Speedway facility in Antigo, Wis., during the Langlade County Fair on Friday, July 29. Hartmann opened the night by timing in 15th in the 21-car field with a lap of 19.571 seconds.

After lining up fifth in the third eight-lap IRA heat race, Hartmann held down the fifth position in the running order until the final lap when he suffered a rear-end failure heading down the backstretch, which relegated him to a seventh-place finish and sent the 87A Hartmann Racing team into scramble mode to put the car back together for the A-main.

Some quick and efficient crew work got Hartmann back on the track for the 25-lap A main, where he officially started 19th. A strong start vaulted Hartmann past several cars in the opening laps, as he worked his way around Al Schlafer, Hunter Custer, Tyler Tischendorf, Kris Spitz and Jack Vanderboom, during the course of the race on the way to a 14th-place finish in the non-stop event, which was won by Danny Schlafer.

Hartmann's third top-15 A-main finish of the IRA season also netted him hard charger honors, after moving up five spots in the main event.

“It was our first time racing at Antigo and qualifying went the best it could really, as the track faded quickly,” Hartmann said. “In the heat race, we were running fifth until the rear axle snapped. Luckily, it happened going down the backstretch and not in the corner.

“The crew, along with Ozzie and Mikey from Team 73, got the car back together for the A main,” he said. “The car felt great in the feature and we were able to run up to 14th to turn a night that didn't start out very well into a good night for us.”

The following night saw the team travel back home for its third appearance of the season at The Plymouth Dirt Track. With 22 IRA 410 Sprint Cars on hand, Hartmann turned in his best qualifying effort of the 2022 season, as he timed in third with a lap of 11.769 seconds around the third-mile clay oval.

After lining up fourth in the third eight-lap heat race, Hartmann finished fourth to advance to his second IRA dash of the 2022 campaign. The third-year Sprint Car racer started and finished fifth in the second four-lap IRA dash to secure the 10th starting spot in the 30-lap main event.

Hartmann worked primarily the low groove during the majority of the A-main en route to a strong 12th-place main event showing in a race won by Kyle Schuett.

The finish marked Hartmann's fourth top-15 and ninth top-20 A-main showing in the first 14 IRA events of the 2022 season.

“Saturday started great with a good run in qualifying,” Hartmann said. “I honestly didn't feel the greatest with my laps, but I guess that's sometimes when you end up being faster. In the heat race, the plan was to make it into the dash, which we did before I pulled a terrible pill.

“Going into the feature was a little tricky for me, as we were battling small issues with the car's handling all night, so we put something new into the car and it was okay, but just not enough to go forward,” he said.

After the event at The Plymouth Dirt Track on July 30, Hartmann moved up to ninth place in the Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Car Series point standings with 10 races remaining in the 2022 IRA season.

With no IRA races scheduled during the next two weekends, the 87A Hartmann Racing team will return to action with an IRA doubleheader weekend starting Saturday, Aug. 20 at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis. and concluding Sunday, Aug. 21 at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. during the annual Corn Fest celebration.

"410" SPRINT CARS HEADLINE "BILL KIRILA MEMORIAL" SATURDAY AT SHARON WITH $3000 ON THE LINE; STOCKS, RUSH MODS & ECONO MODS ALSO PART OF THE "SUPER SERIES" EVENT

August 3, 2022

By Mike Leone


(Hartford, OH)…Sharon Speedway will look to complete its 10th straight show this Saturday night (August 6) as it's the final "Super Series" event of the 92nd anniversary season. The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars will headline the annual "Bill Kirila Memorial" and will be joined by the Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and the Whelen Econo Mods. It’s Barris Supply and Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Night. Race time is 7 p.m.

Bill Kirila was one of the owners of Sharon along his brother Ron and the Blaney and Weller Families when the track changed ownership in 2002. Kirila of Brookfield, Ohio passed away after an extended illness on June 23, 2006 at the age of 68. He was a graduate of Brookfield Ohio School and went on to become the Vice President of Kirila Contractors.

The "410" Sprint Cars will race for $3,000 to-win Saturday in the final non-sanctioned show of the season. After Saturday night, the final "410" events will include the All Star Circuit of Champions on September 2-3 for the return of the "Sharon Nationals" and the World of Outlaws on September 24.

Five "410" events have been completed in 2022. Cap Henry won the opener over the 41-car field of All Star Sprints on April 30. A.J. Flick ended more than a three-year dry-spell by capturing the June 4 Western PA Speedweek event over the 33-car field. Christopher Bell won for the third time in All Star competition at Sharon bagging the Ohio Speedweek show on June 14 over a strong 42-car field. Flick added his season's second win on June 25. And most recently, George Hobaugh charged from the ninth starting spot to win last Saturday night, which was the 700th all-time "410" race run in the track's history, to become the fourth different winner in five races. The Sprints will group qualify to set their heat race lineups.

Summit Racing Equipment will present the hard charger award on Saturday night to the Sprint Cars. The driver that passes the most cars in the feature will receive a $100 Summit gift card. In the event of a tie, the tiebreaker will be the driver that finishes highest in the feature.

"410" Sprint Car Payoff: 1. $3,000 2. $1,300 3. $1,000 4. $750 5. $650 6. $550 7. $500 8. $450 9. $425 10. $400 11-13. $375 14-16. $350 17-20. $300 21-24. $250. Tow/Non-Qualifiers $100.

The Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks will be competing in their sixth race of 2022 on Saturday night. In their June 18 opener, McGuire returned to prominence as he ran his famed high line around the fence to pass 32-time Sharon winner Steve D'Apolito for the victory. On June 25, Curt J. Bish stole a win away from 70-year-old Larry Kugel with a turn four, last lap pass for the 2019 and 2021 champion. On July 19, Chris Schneider led all the way unchallenged for his 16th career win at the track. Bish picked up his second win of the year and second $10,000 "Steel Valley Pro Stock Nationals" victory topping a 52-car field on July 16. Last Saturday night saw Bobby Whitling end a winless drought of more than three years to become the fourth different winner in five races.

The HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will also be battling in their sixth show of 2022. There have been five different winners in as many races with Tony Tatgenhorst, Justin Shea, Ben Easler, Garrett Krummert, and JC Boyer victorious. The wins for Tatgenhorst, Easler, and Boyer were the first Sharon wins of their careers, while Shea's ended nearly a five-year winless drought. Will there be a sixth different winner in six races on Saturday night!? Easler sits atop both the $3,500 to-win Hovis Weekly Series and $1,000 to-win Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series points over two-time track champion, Kole Holden. Easler's lead is just one-point in the Weekly Series.

The Whelen Econo Mods round out the four-division show on Saturday night for their sixth race of the year as well. The Econo Mods joined the All Star Sprints at the April 30 opener, and it was Jeremy Double victorious. Five weeks later, Will Thomas III won for the sixth time in eight starts over the past two years in the division. On June 25, Garrett Calvert passed Gary Olson to score his first career Sharon win. Jacob Eucker ended nearly a three-year winless drought by capturing the July 16 main event. Double then became the first driver to double up as he led from start-to-finish last Saturday night holding off Thomas for his 18th career win. Double trails Brandon Blackshear by just three wins for the most all-time in the division.

There is no Sharon registration fee. One-way driver radios are mandatory; channel 454.000. AMB/MyLaps transponders are required; rentals available for $25. If you have yet to register for the 2022 season, please bring the registration form with you completed http://sharonspeedway.myracepass.com/downloads/get.aspx?i=713060

Fans can not only experience viewing from the frontstretch and backstretch grandstands, but also from the infield fan zone. The fan zone, which includes a concession and restrooms, debuted in 2020 during the COVID-19 shortened season. Sharon is the only track in the area to have viewing from the unique infield perspective. There will be times throughout the night when fans can cross on the frontstretch back and forth.

The pits will be open throughout the afternoon with passes going on sale at 4 p.m., while general admission opens at 5. "410" Sprint group qualifying will be at 6:30 p.m. Racing will begin at 7 p.m.

Grandstand/fan zone admission for those 14 and over is $15, while senior admission is $10. Patio seating upgrades are just $10 and fan suite seating upgrades are just $20 over the cost of general admission. These can be upgraded on race night at the track office. As always, children under 14 and parking are always FREE. Pit passes are $30. As a reminder, coolers nor outside food or beverages are not permitted.

Coming up next Saturday night (August 13) will be a "Steel Valley Thunder" event featuring the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply UMP Modifieds, Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars, Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, and the HTMA/Precise Racing RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. Race time is 7 p.m.

The World of Outlaws Late Models will be returning on Saturday, August 20 for the "Battle at the Border" paying $10,000 to-win, and will be joined by the Whelen Econo Mods. Tickets are on sale at https://sharonspeedway.simpletix.com/

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3, 2022

LOCK 'EM IN....

The calendar is set for the 2022-23 Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series - and it promises to be a big one for Australia’s leading domestic sprintcar series.

The series will be contested over 18 rounds - and on top of that - there will also be the prelude to the Australian Sprintcar Championship on the Wednesday prior to the big show - and the two nights of the title fight - making it 21 nights of action.

The series will kick off at the Perth Motorplex on Saturday October 22 as part of the Shannons Powerpalooza that starts with Drag Racing before transitioning to Burnouts and then finishing with Speedway.

Prior to Christmas there will be another three nights of Motorplex racing - The City of Kwinana Westernapolis, the Scardifields Smash King of Wings and the House & Land Expert WA Sprintcar title.

The popular Christmas period kicks off with two nights of USA v WA Sprintcar Speedweek at the Motorplex (December 26-28) before the series heads south for the first foray at Bunbury Speedway for the third round of Speedweek on January 1, before teams return to the Motorplex the following night for the fourth Speedweek round.

Speedweek then heads to Ellenbrook, returns to Bunbury and wraps up at the Motorplex for the seventh and final round.

By this stage 11 rounds of the overall series will have been run and it takes a break for the three nights of racing in the Australian Sprintcar Championship week that are non-series rounds.

The series battle resumes with the Krikke Boys Shootout that will now be based at the Motorplex and this is followed by the Ampol Legends of Speedway-RETRO NIGHT, the TD Granny Flats & Modular Homes Silver Cup and the Asphalt Recyclers Australia Sprintcar Gold Cup - also all at the Motorplex.

The final three shows will once again form the Maddington Toyota Triple Crown - kicking off at Bunbury on Good Friday, before returning to the Motorplex on Easter Saturday - and all wrapping up with the series grand final in Perth on Saturday, April 22.

More details will be released soon on what is shaping up to be a big summer of sprintcar racing.

Dover Earns Sixth-Place Result at Huset's With 360 Knoxville Nationals Up Next

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Aug. 3, 2022) - Jack Dover garnered his 12th top-10 outing of the season last Sunday at Huset's Speedway.

Dover kicked off the event by qualifying fourth quickest in the Rick and Chris Bowers owned No. 81 sprint car.

"We went out as the last car and everybody was going around the top," he said. "The three cars in front of me went to the bottom and had good times so I figured I better try that and we ended up fourth."

Dover finished where he started - third - in a heat race to advance into the feature redraw. He pulled the No. 5 to line up on the inside of the third row in the main event.

"I just needed to be tighter middle-off through the corners," he said. "We were able to run the top the whole race so we're getting closer to being better. I think we need to be more aggressive with the setup."

Dover battled for a top five throughout the feature before ending sixth. It was his eighth top 10 of the season at the track. He ranks fifth in the championship standings - only one point behind fourth and 33 points out of the lead with three races remaining this season.

Next up for Dover is the 32nd annual 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank hosted by Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, this weekend. Dover's preliminary night is Thursday.

"Our goal is to make the A Mains," he said. "Anything after that is a bonus."

Dover's best run at the 360 Knoxville Nationals is a fourth-place finish in 2012. He has earned four top 10s at the event, which is tied for 16 th most all time.

Hagar Bound for Ironman 55 and Capitani Classic This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions – MARION, Ark. (Aug. 3, 2022) – Derek Hagar is going 410 racing the next two weeks.

Hagar and KO Motorsports will tackle the Ironman 55 this Friday and Saturday at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series. The team will cap the weekend on Sunday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, racing in the 11th annual Capitani Classic presented by Great Southern Bank.

Next week will be the 61st annual NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s, which is Aug. 10-13 at Knoxville Raceway.

“We’re not setting high expectations because we don’t race this stuff very often with the 410,” Hagar said. “I don’t want to go out with high expectations and not meet them and be down. We’ll take it race by race and perform the best we know how to do and hopefully the results show up.”

Hagar produced a career-best 17th-place result at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 earlier this season during a rare World of Outlaws start. It marked only his third sprint car race at the high-banked oval, where he ran into mechanical problems in 2018 and qualified for the Ironman 55 in 2012 while using a 360ci engine.

“It’s been several years since I’ve ran the Ironman 55,” he said. “We made the show with our 360 and as soon as we pushed out for the feature it rained out. We went back later that year with our 410 and ran the day race for the make-up and got upside down. We hurt the car and couldn’t race that night.

“I believe we have a good base setup from when we were there earlier this year. We faded real quick in the feature when the track slicked off. There’s a couple of things we know now that we should have changed. We’re prepared for two days. We just want to make the show and be able to race with these guys.”

The Capitani Classic will mark Hagar’s first time at Knoxville Raceway this year.

“Just getting laps at Knoxville is important,” he said. “That’s one thing we lack there is laps. I wouldn’t consider us a big-track team. Everything we run is small. Whenever you go to Knoxville you have to be on your game. We’ll use the Capitani as a test session to hopefully learn something fairly quick for the Knoxville Nationals next week.”

SEASON STATS –

20 races, 9 wins, 14 top fives, 18 top 10s, 18 top 15s, 19 top 20s

Wilson Scores Top Five at Sharon Speedway and Top 10 at Lernerville Speedway

Inside Line Promotions – HARTFORD, Ohio (Aug. 3, 2022) – Greg Wilson highlighted last weekend with a fourth-place finish at Sharon Speedway.

It marked his best result at the track since September 2005 and was the seventh top five of the season for the Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics sponsored Seeling Motorsports driver.

“I felt like we were decent at Sharon,” he said. “I realize it wasn’t an All Star race, but we were way more competitive than we’ve been there.”

Wilson qualified second quickest in his group before he placed third in a heat race. He battled for a podium throughout the feature before ending fourth.

“I felt if the race went green to checkered we’d have a shot to win,” he said. “We got to second and caught the leader in traffic, but a caution came out. After a couple of late restarts George (Hobaugh) and (Dan) Shetler got rolling pretty good through the middle of the track and we weren’t that good. All in all, I felt like as bad as we’ve been there, I was okay leaving there with a top five.”

It was a good ending to a weekend that began with a crash during the opening lap of a heat race on Friday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa.

“To be honest it ruined our night,” he said. “We didn’t think it hurt anything. In the feature we passed a few cars, but we just weren’t very good. We were up and sliding. The track got really slick, which usually we’re good at that type. It was just one of those deals where the next day Andy found some stuff that was damaged and that explained our struggle.”

Wilson advanced from 15th to 10th in the feature for his second top 10 of the season at the track.

The team plans to take this weekend off before heading to the Midwest next week to race in the 61st annual NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s, which runs Aug. 10-13 at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa.

QUICK RESULTS –

July 29 – Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa. – Heat race: 8 (4); Feature: 10 (15).

July 30 – Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio – Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 4 (3).

Fifth Annual Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals this Weekend!

Lonnie Wheatley, BELLEVILLE, Kansas (August 3, 2022) – The storied Belleville High Banks fires back to life this weekend with the United Rebel Sprint Series-sanctioned Fifth Annual Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals.

A stellar field of drivers will slug it out for $7,000-to-win and $1,000-to-start in Saturday night’s finale after vying for Friday’s $2,500-to-win and $350-to-start preliminary bout.

The current entry count stands at 44 cars with an assortment of drivers from Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, South Dakota, Missouri and New Mexico among those.

Reigning Belleville 305 Nationals champion Luke Cranston of Ness City, KS, is among the current entries as tries to make it two in a row after beating Jason Martin and Stu Snyder to the line to take the lucrative win last August.

Cranston became the third winner of the event after Jake Bubak topped the initial two renditions in 2018 and 2019 and then Adam Trimble pulled off an upset win in 2020.

Zach Blurton will take aim at the top spot after scoring a preliminary feature win in 2020 while Steven Richardson leads the URSS forces into the weekend as the current series points leader with a slim advantage over Jeremy Huish and Cranston, I-70 305 Sprint Car Nationals champion Ty Williams and Jon Freeman.

This year’s version of the Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals will feature a change of format, adopting a version of the popular All Star Circuit of Champions format including qualifying among heat race groups to set heat race lineups with a four-car inversion. Heat race winners along with the fastest qualifier among transfer positions will go to the feature redraw, with any heat race winner that is also that race’s fastest qualifier knocking a car out of the redraw.

Racing action is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday.

Tickets for Friday’s action are $25 for adults and $15 for children under 12, with Saturday at $30 for adults and $20 for children under 12. Detailed ticket information is available at https://bellevillehighbanks.org/events/305-nationals/.

AFTER A SIX-WEEK SCHEDULE BREAK, THE FLOWDYNAMICS TEAM RETURNS TO ACTION SATURDAY

(Ontario, CA, August 3, 2022) After a six-week summer break in the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series schedule, Flowdynamics drivers Matt McCarthy and Logan Williams will return to action this Saturday night, August 6th, at the Santa Maria Raceway. The race will be the first for the talented duo at the 58-year-old speed plant since July 3rd, 2021.

The break in the schedule was originally slated to be six weeks from July 9th through August 20th. However, the races slated for the Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, and the Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare on July 8th and 9th were canceled due to the heat, cost of fuel, and scarcity of tires. Fortunately, for teams and fans, a race at Santa Maria was added to the schedule. It will be the first action at the track since its premature closure for non-racing-related issues one year ago.

The last time USAC/CRA appeared on the banked 1/3 mile oval 13 months ago, Williams, who lives in Yorba Linda, California, finished eighth in the 30-lap main event. His teammate, McCarthy, who calls Riverside, California home, was one spot behind his young teammate in ninth.

Saturday will be race #13 for the series and both Flowdynamics drivers in 2022. Williams heads into the event fifth in USAC/CRA points and is only 26-points out of fourth. McCarthy is currently 10th and is just 16 points out of ninth. In their last outing on June 25th at Perris Auto Speedway, both drivers had top 10 finishes. Williams placed fifth in the 30-lap main event and McCarthy came home eighth. That was Williams’ second-best result thus far in 2022 and was only surpassed by a fourth-place effort at the Bakersfield Speedway on May 14th. Likewise, it was McCarthy’s second-best finish of the current campaign and it was only beaten by a seventh at Perris on March 26th.

Coors Light Big Trophy Night jump starts colossal month at Placerville Speedway

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…The final stretch of the championship push begins this Saturday August 6th at Placerville Speedway, as Coors Light “Big Trophy Night” launches the start of three point races to go and the last full month of competition on the quarter-mile.

The Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged Sprint Cars, Mtn. Democrat Ltd. Late Models and the Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks will all be vying for one of the special five-foot tall perpetual trophies handed out to the winners on Big Trophy Night. In addition to the three speedway regulars the traveling Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association returns to complete the bill on Saturday.

Live music will be performed in the shaded entertainment zone by Tamra Godey prior to the races from 4-6pm. As always, Coors Light and Coors Banquet Happy Hour pricing will occur from 3-6 at the Coors Light Cold Zone.

“We certainly have a huge stretch coming up at Placerville Speedway, so we hope everybody is excited,” commented Promoter Scott Russell. “Big Trophy Night is the beginning of three races to go in the championship fight and after that we move right into the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout on Labor Day weekend. Just a couple weeks after that we welcome in the World of Outlaws on September 17th. It has been an outstanding season thus far and we hope to continue that over the next month.”

With three events remaining Auburn’s Andy Forsberg has a ninth Thompson’s Winged 360 Sprint Car title within his sights. After a runner up finish at the Forni Classic he has extended his advantage over Jodie Robinson to 36-markers. Forsberg has one win and leads the way with five top-five finishes in the first 10 events. Robinson also has one victory and will look to add another in hopes to chipping away at the point lead.

Placerville’s Shane Hopkins has had some consistent runs this year and ranks third in points, followed by Elk Grove’s Bubba Decaires and Chico’s Michael Ing who round out the top-five. Filling out the top-10 with the point season winding down are Jimmy Trulli, Stephen Ingraham, Justin Johnson, Chris Masters and Bill Smith. CJ Humphreys, Kalib Henry, Landon Brooks, Ryan Lippencott, Justin Bradway and others have also continued to be common sights this year.

The Mountain Democrat Ltd. Late Models have been all about Dan Jinkerson this season. The Diamond Springs racer is fresh off his fifth triumph in six races and he will be gunning to add more on Saturday. Lincoln’s Dan Brown Jr. has been consistent and knocking on the door of victory lane. Brown sits second in points with Garden Valley’s Jay Norton, Yuba City’s Rod Oliver and Placerville’s Tyler Lightfoot completing the top-five. Big Trophy Night marks the penultimate event of the season for the Late Models.

Oakley’s Nick Baldwin has also continued to be a dominant force with the Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks, having picked up his fourth win of the year at the recent Forni Classic. Baldwin’s nine top-five finishes in nine starts is untouched and he goes into Saturday with a 121-point lead over youngster Michael Murphy. Kevin Jinkerson, Ryan Murphy, Jason Poppert, Johnny Walsh, Mel Byers, Russ Murphy, Chris D’Angelo and Wayne Trimble round out the top-10 in the standings.

Colfax driver Ben Wiesz has had a stranglehold on the Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association appearances so far in 2022. Wiesz will be looking to make it five-for-five this Saturday after claiming his fourth win in four starts at the Mark Forni Classic.

Adult tickets for Coors Light Big Trophy Night this Saturday August 6th cost $18 while seniors 62+, military and juniors 12-17 will be $16. Kids 6-11 cost $8, while ages 5 and under are free. Purchase tickets online at https://www.eventsprout.com/event/points-race-14 or at the gate on race day.

Hoffman and Fielding Reach the Top in Modified and Pro Stock Points, Respectively; Flick Closing In 410 Sprints; Maskal Still Ahead in Minis
(Franklin, PA August 2, 2022): The big news coming out of Sunday’s event at Tri-City Raceway Park were the changes in the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modified ranks. But the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks also have a new name on the top of the standings. What is more, a battle is brewing for the title in the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars!
Jeremiah Shingledecker, the most successful driver in the 358 Modified division, is at the center of the story. He sold the car that carried him to the 2021 title and that was best in class in the first half of the 2022 season. The 37MD now belongs to rookie Austin Eyler. And, if that name sounds familiar, it is because he is kin to former 410 Sprint Car racer Rob Eyler. Well, Eyler stripped off the “MD” and he now campaigns the car as the 37. So, that left Shingledecker without a ride for the balance of the 2022 season at the track.
But wait, there’s more.
Shingledecker signed in to drive the potent Hoffman Door 00 on Sunday. The owner and driver, Kevin Hoffman, was under the weather, so he asked Shingledecker to take the seat for the night. Shingledecker did the Hoffmans proud, taking the wins in his heat and in the feature event.
Under track rules, the points for Shingledecker’s successes were awarded to the car, and not the driver. So, the Hoffman 00 vaulted into first place in the championship standings, as Kevin was the winner before the track had consecutive cancellations due to weather.
It is anticipated that Kevin Hoffman will return to the seat this weekend, so it will be up to him to keep the winning streak alive. But, if he is unable to race again due to his health, he knows that he will have a capable substitute to fill in for him again.
So, the Hoffman 00 sits at the top of the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group standings, thanks to the assist from Jeremiah Shingledecker. Jimmy Holden, who was second to Shingledecker Sunday evening, is second in the season’s standings by just 13 points, so things are not so settled any more. Shingledecker is still third based on his outstanding performances in his own car before it was sold. Nick Joy, who travels down from New York to race at Tri-City, is just eight points back, so he could easily surpass Shingledecker this week. Lonny Riggs, who had a strong top five last week, is now fifth in the standings and he could move up a notch with another good run.
In the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, Pat Fielding now tops the points after getting his first career win in this division. Fielding has been in the Pro Stock game for a decade, just a few years less than his closest rival has been alive. Teenager Tyler Wyant trails by only ten markers, but his DNF (“did not finish”) on Sunday hurt him in the championship tilt. Josh Seippel, Charlie McMillen, and the Boozel brothers complete the top five.
Older brother Ayden Boozel started the season in the family car, wrenched by their grandfather, Bob Sloss, who was a successful Pro Stock driver in his day. But the younger sibling, Quinten, took his turn behind the wheel of the 44B on Sunday and he brought it home in the top five. Not bad for the first-time racer!
In the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars, A.J. Flick moved into second behind former champion Jack Sodeman, Jr. More importantly, Flick shaved a couple of points off the lead. He now trails Sodeman by 23. Just one point further back is Jeremy Weaver, who now drives Bob McMillin’s car re-numbered as 35W. Bob Felmlee and Chase Metheney complete the top five in the winged warriors.
Levi Maskal still sits atop the rankings in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. Matt Urey, a recent feature winner, is second. Chad Greeley, D.J. Macrae, and recently engaged Bodey McClintock make up the rest of the top five. Dalton Speer, who regained the winning ways last week, is seventh, behind Dillon Thorne.
The action will start for these racers, and many more, at 6 p.m. on Sunday, August 8. Pit gates will open at 2 p.m., and spectators can enter the grandstands at 4 p.m.
Regular event ticket pricing will prevail on Sunday evening. Adult admission, for those aged 16 to 62, will be $15. Seniors (ages 62 and up) will be $13. Student tickets will be $10 for those ages 10 to 16. Children under the age of 10, will be free, as usual. The Family Pass (good for two adults of any age and two students) will be $45. Pit Passes will be $30.
If you cannot make it to the track on August 8, Tri-City Raceway Park will be back in action on August 15 with another Sunday Thunder event, which will include the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprints, the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, and the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks.
Then, on August 21, the speedway will host the World of Outlaws Late Model Series. Joining the most powerful Late Models on the planet will be the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. Please note this schedule change.
The track will close out the month of August with another Sunday Thunder program on August 28.
Get ready for the season-ending spectacular to be held over the Labor Day weekend. The activity will start with a practice session on Friday, September 2, with free grandstand admission. Racing will begin on Saturday, September 3, for the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprints, the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks, and the Junior Sprints. All five classes will return for the finale on Sunday, September 4, along with the RUSH Sprint Cars. Camping will be free throughout the weekend, and there will be fireworks and a bonfire Sunday to celebrate the end of the summer.

MSR BOB FREY CLASSIC...HUGE STEADFAST BONUS MONEY

HOLLY, Mich. (Aug. 2, 2022) – As the Must See Racing Engine Pro Sprint Car Series heads to Ohio’s Lorain Raceway Park for its penultimate race of the season, its drivers will have a chance at a hefty payout on Saturday night.
Through four eligible features this year, no driver has elected to take the Steadfast for Veterans Challenge, a bonus program that gives the fastest qualifier the option to drop to the rear of the starting grid prior to the main event in exchange for a guaranteed $500 payout.
Should that driver come through the field to win the race, they would earn an additional $500 bonus for a total of $1,000 in addition to their normal feature winnings.
However, the caveat to the challenge is that when the fast qualifier declines to drop to the tail on a given night, the $1,000 left on the table rolls over to the next event to create an increasing jackpot.
That means that Saturday’s 40-lap Bob Frey Classic at Lorain poses the opportunity for the fast qualifier to start from the rear and earn a total bonus of $5,000 if they can capture the checkered flag.
Combined with heat race payouts and currently confirmed lap money for the event, one driver has an opportunity to pocket more than $7,700 if they were to set fast time, win their heat race, and then win the feature from last after taking the Steadfast for Veterans Challenge.
“As a sponsor for the series, I’m honestly a little surprised that nobody has attempted the challenge to this point,” admitted Tony Roberts, the founder of Steadfast for Veterans. “The fan in me is excited, though, to be able to have a potential jackpot this large heading into one of the biggest races of the season on the Must See Racing calendar. It’s definitely quite a carrot to have out there for the drivers and their teams, especially after some of the great races we’ve seen already through the summer.
“Last week, we saw Ryan Litt get inverted to 10th and still come through the field to win at Berlin (Raceway) … so I believe that it’s doable for someone to win from last and collect that bonus money, especially with the extended distance of the feature and the ability to use the high lane in the corners at Lorain,” Roberts continued. “I think that if the challenge does get taken this weekend, it will make for a very entertaining race and create a lot of added excitement for the race fans.”
Litt, the only Canadian driver in the Must See Racing field, appears primed to take on the “favorite” role when it comes to the Steadfast for Veterans Challenge. He roared from 10th starting spot to the lead in just three laps at Berlin over the weekend en route to his first victory with the series since 2013.
However, the native of London, Ontario, isn’t the only driver capable of charging through the field for a victory.
Championship rivals Joe Liguori and Charlie Schultz have both shown race-winning pace at various times during the season, while Jason Blonde has been victorious from deep in the past and raced from eighth to second at Berlin.
It all makes for a pot that’s just waiting to be stirred Saturday night in Northeastern Ohio.
Saturday’s Bob Frey Classic at Lorain Raceway Park will be streamed live through SPEED SPORT TV as a SPEED SPORT Spotlight Event, offered free to active SPEED SPORT TV subscribers.
Subscriptions to SPEED SPORT TV start at just $14.99/month or $99/year.

Newlin Back on Track in 410 Sprints, Searching for Balance
Two Race Weekend Ahead at Williams Grove and Port Royal

Port Royal, PA – August 2, 2022

Zach Newlin’s weekend was supposed to kick off with 358 sprint car competition at Williams Grove Speedway in the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m, however Mother Nature claimed the victory Friday night, leaving the Millerstown, PA resident to turn his attention to Saturday night’s 410 sprint car race at Port Royal Speedway in the BK Motorsports N0.77.

July 30: Living Legends Dream Race / Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

[27 cars, Qualifying 26th, Heat 9th (9), B-main 5th (9),

A-main #1 24th (23), A-main #2 20th (24)]

Newlin and the No.77 team have limited 410 sprint car experience and had been working hard to shorten the learning curve, with a goal of establishing a reliable baseline setup to adjust from. That process had been stalled when the team was sidelined for six weeks for a variety of reasons.

Back in June with only a few races together, Newlin and the BK Motorsports team had a good heat race run and earned a mid-pack starting spot, but they were unable to maintain and faded in the main event.

Tonight, they were ready to get back to work finding a good balance in their X1 chassis at Port Royal’s Living Legends Dream Race. The format for the 16th annual event took on a slightly new look for 2022. The PA Speedweek time trial and heat race format would be used to set the lineup for the first of two twin 20-lap features. The lineup for the second feature would be based on the finishing order of the first race but would use an inversion of either the top 4, 6 or 8 finishers of the first race. The inversion pill would be drawn by the winner of the first feature.

Twenty seven teams signed in to compete Saturday night, vying for their share of the $60,000 total purse. Newlin’s night started off absent any luck. He drew the highest pill, which meant he would go out last under the clock. In the PA Speedweek format the field qualifies as one group, so a late slot in the order is not an ideal scenario for a team.

Newlin turned in the 26th quickest lap in qualifying in the Victory Auto / Grove Financial & Associates / Dillman Hauling / Centre Roofing & Contracting / Mattas Motorsports / Ron’s RV Sales / The Roast Post / Tuscarora Roofing Co. / FIT Transportation / Kirby Kitner Excavating / Christine Booher, Realtor / T&M Homebuilders / Strange Oval / Walker Performance Filtration / Newlin Bar Service, BK Motorsports No.77, which meant he and the team had some work to do if they were going to climb out of the early hole.

Just two laps into his 8-lap heat race, the hole got deeper. Something didn’t feel right and the ill-handling racecar forced Newlin to the pits.

The 9th place finish in the heat race placed Newlin 9th on the starting grid for the 12-lap B-main. He was able to advance a few positions and work his way into the 6th and final A-main transfer spot, then got a little insurance when a top five car dropped out.

It wasn’t the easiest path, but they were in the Dream Race. That meant more laps, more experience, and guaranteed start money.

Newlin started 23rd in the first 20-lap A-main and was running 24th on lap nine. Unable to move forward, the team made the decision to pull in, save their equipment for the second feature, and make adjustments to get better. While racers want to race and never want to give up, it was the smart decision for the bigger picture. It gave the team time to assess what they had learned and make adjustments for the second race, which gave them another opportunity to add to their notebook.

While the final finish didn’t show a dramatic improvement, Newlin indicated the car was definitely better in the second race. He crossed under the checkers in 20th after starting 24th.

“We didn’t time well tonight and that’s tough to overcome, then we had the issue in the heat race and had to pull in, which made it even tougher.” Newlin commented.

“We had really good straightaway speed. We’ve got bite and enough power, now we just need to get it rotating better in the corner. We’ve been too tight. I could enter the corner pretty decent but from the middle off I just have to fight it too much and we lose time & speed. We’re putting our heads together and getting some other opinions to try and get this car balanced better. Just have to keep racing and working on it. We’ll figure it out.”

Up Next

Zach will be aboard the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m Friday night August 5th at Williams Grove Speedway for a first-of-its-kind Match Race for the 358 sprint cars, offering a total purse of over $20,000. Per Williams Grove’s website, the much anticipated Match Race, including matched sponsorship funds from the speedway, will go 25-laps in distance while paying $2,021 to win and $696 to start.

Saturday night, August 6th, Newlin will be back in the BK Motorsports No.77 410 sprint car at Port Royal Speedway, where the new team will continue working hard to find the right balance and break through with a top ten run.

Robert Ballou Bags Indiana Sprint Week Finale

PETERSEN MEDIA: When the dust settled on a grueling Indiana Sprint Week, Robert Ballou stood stall as he claimed the final event of the week on Saturday night at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, IN.

“We had pretty good speed all week, and to finally get one of these ISW wins is huge for us going into a gap in the schedule,” Robert Ballou said. “Kyle Cummins is one of the best to ever do it at Tri-State Speedway so to have him on my rear bumper on that last restart was a little nerve racking.”

Kicking the week off on July 22nd night with a fourth-place finish, Ballou would then pick up a ninth place finish at Circle City on Monday night after Saturday’s scheduled event at Kokomo Speedway was postponed to rain, and Sunday’s race at Lawrenceburg Speedway was washed out.

The rescheduled Kokomo Speedway event was one of the races of the week as Ballou went toe-to-toe with Justin Grant. Leading the first 10-laps, Grant would get by Ballou but the race would be far from over. In one of the most talked about events of the week, Ballou and Grant would then swap the top a total eight times before Ballou finally settled for third as Kyle Cummins snuck by in the waning laps.

More rain on Wednesday night saw officials cancel the scheduled event at Terre Haute Action Track, and the was proceeded by two tough nights at Bloomington Speedway and Lincoln Park Speedway.

Thursday night at Lincoln Park Speedway, Ballou started deep in the field and was able to get rolling in the right direction in the feature. Unfortunately, a chain reaction incident left Ballou with nowhere to go and ended up finishing 19th.

As the week continued, Ballou continued to have a fast Suburban Subaru/Deaton’s Waterfront Service/Rossie Feed and Grain entry, however he still chased after his first win of the week. Lining up 16th in the ‘A’, Ballou had his elbows up on the bullring as he carved his way forward.

Working into fifth late in the race, Ballou would get upside down amidst his charge and with a flat right rear, his night would be over as he ended up 17th on the final run down officially.

Haubstadt, IN’s Tri-State Speedway marked the final event for Indian Sprint Week, and ‘The Mad Man’ saved his best for last. After timing in fifth fastest in qualifying time trials, Ballou had his elbows up as he powered his way to a heat race win.

Lining up second in the feature event, Ballou was hard on the methanol as he jumped out to the early lead, though would feel pressure in the name of Justin Grant as the duo waged war for a better part of the race.

A couple of stoppages bunched the field up, and on this night restarts were kind to Ballou as he continued to lead the way. One final restart put the winningest driver at Tri-State Speedway, Kyle Cummins, on his rear bumper but as he did all night long, Ballou nailed the final restart and raced his way to a win during the ISW finale.

“We made some changes for the last few nights, and it made me wish I would have pulled the trigger earlier in the week,” Ballou said. “We had a few sponsors in the house on Saturday night, so to grab a win and send a trophy home with them was really great.”

Robert Ballou would like to thank Suburban Subaru, Deaton’s Waterfront Service, Rossie Feed and Grain, Berks Western Telecom, Inc., Dan Roberts Motorsports, Dragonfly Aviation, Hinchman Indy, Don Ott Racing Engines, Manvel Motorsports, CSI Shocks, Walker Performance Filtration, Amsoil Inc, Murray’s Body Shop, Pacific Grass and Turf, MPHG Promotions Inc, Team Jack Foundation, Olson Custom Design, Konnected Clothing, Hooker Harness, Indy Race Parts, Hoosier Tire, Schoenfeld Headers, ISC Racers Tape, Chalk Racing Products, Keizer Aluminum Wheels, Saldana Racing Products, Moose Blocks, Inc., AO Designs, and Arai Helmets for their support.

ON TAP: Robert Ballou is TBD when his next event will be at this time with the next USAC event slated for late August.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-31, Wins- 6, Top 5’s- 18, Top-10’s- 24

STAY CONNECTED: Stay up to speed with ‘The Mad Man’ by following him on Twitter @RoberBallou81, liking https://www.facebook.com/robertballoumotorsports/, or by clicking over to www.balloumotorsports.com.

 

 

Kyle Keen Gaining Experience Through Challenges
Williams Grove’s Match Race Up Next

Abbottstown, PA – August 2, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

For any new driver, there is nothing more valuable than seat time. It’s a simple equation; seat time equals laps, and laps equals learning plus experience.

As a rookie in the 358 sprint car pits, Kyle Keen can attest to that. Every time he unloads his car and hits the track, the notebook on the car expands and the driver’s own mental notebook grows as well.

Keen’s plan last weekend was to get two more nights under his belt, but unfortunately Mother Nature took away one of the two opportunities Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway. Saturday, it was off to Lincoln Speedway under clear skies.

July 30: Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

[31 cars, Heat 6th (6), B-main 3rd (4th), A-main 18th (23)]

Keen lined up 6th for his heat race, the result of an unfriendly pill draw. The opening lap didn’t go his way and he slipped back to 7th, but the Carlisle, PA native recovered and found his groove. By the completion of the second lap, Keen was in 5th and looking for more.

When the dust settled, Keen came home 6th, missing the transfer to the A-main by one spot in the Fine Line Auto Body / Keen Parts / Doubling Gap Ranch / Shetron Auction & Equipment, LLC. / Wicked Dog Grille / Heishman Racing Fuels / Wicked Cushion / DL Lehman Construction, LLC. / GearHead Coffee / Jeremy Zarfos Photography / Coyle’s Lawn Maintenance / One Nine Design, Kyle Keen Motorsports No.17k.

“The car was good enough to run 5th or maybe even 4th, but I missed a couple corners and slipped backed to 6th. I learned what I need to work on there.“, Keen shared.

Keen lined up outside row two for the B-main, his last shot to make the show. The top four finishers would transfer to the night’s 20-lap finale. He held the final transfer spot firmly for the first eight laps, then with two laps remaining secured some insurance by grabbing the 3rd spot away from Tylar Rutherford.

Not all learning occurs on the track. Between the consolation event and the main event, Keen and his team discussed a lot of information and made their setup decisions for the last twenty laps of the night. Sometimes teams learn their decisions were right, sometimes they learn their decisions were wrong…but they always learn. That’s the important part.

From his 23rd starting spot in the A-main, Keen invested all twenty laps in determining what he and his team would learn on this night. The end result after slow and steady forward progress was an 18th place finish that came with a lot of positives.

“The finish may not show it, but I made big, big gains understanding my foot work in the car on entry, and my crew went to work and got the car to stick harder. It was certainly a good night even though the results don’t show it. A lot of what we learned tonight will help us at Williams Grove too. It was a confidence booster night, and we are looking forward to next weekend!”, an energized Keen commented.

“I can’t thank my crew enough for all the dedication and hard work! Big thanks to my dad, Shawn Keen, for always giving my race team 110% every week. You won’t find anyone more committed!“

Up Next

Kyle Keen Motorsports will roll into Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, August 5th, for a first-of-its-kind Match Race for the 358 sprint cars, offering a total purse of over $20,000. Per Williams Grove’s website, the much anticipated Match Race, including matched sponsorship funds from the speedway, will go 25-laps in distance while paying $2,021 to win and $696 to start.

Amantea Primed for Three USAC East Coast Sprint Cars Races This Week

Inside Line Promotions - KUTZTOWN, Pa. (Aug. 2, 2022) - Joey Amantea has a trio of Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars races on tap this week.

The action begins on Wednesday at Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa., where Amantea will also pilot his micro sprint. Additional sprint car races are Friday at Bloomsburg Fairgrounds in Bloomsburg, Pa., and Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa.

"The last time we were at Action Track USA in the big car we ended up making the redraw even with a little mechanical trouble so I'm excited to see how tomorrow plays out," he said. "Bloomsburg has treated us well with two top fives. And we were really fast at Selinsgrove at the beginning of this year. I think we can be a contender. I'm excited to apply what I've learned from racing some 410 races this summer and see how it affects the 360."

Amantea has third-place finishes during USAC East Coast Sprint Cars races at Bloomsburg Fairgrounds and Selinsgrove Speedway this season.

He enters this weekend ranked fourth in the series championship standings.

Amantea competed in a micro sprint event at Action Track USA last Wednesday. He charged from 12th to sixth in a heat race and won the B Main before being caught up in a race-ending crash in the main event.

"We got up to the top 10 three different times, but then got demolished," he said. "From a wreck before I had to restart at the back. I was passing two cars out of turn two and we got into someone who spun out and someone got into us. That ended our night early."

QUICK RESULTS -

July 27 - Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa. - Heat race: 6 (12); B Main: 1 (2); Feature: DNF (22).

SEASON STATS -

23 races, 0 wins, 6 top fives, 10 top 10s, 16 top 15s, 17 top 20s

Starks Records Third Victory in July for Win No. 10 This Season

Inside Line Promotions – ALGER, Wash. (Aug. 2, 2022) – Trey Starks reached the double-digit wins mark for the second time in his career thanks to a triumph at Skagit Speedway last Saturday.

The victory also likely secured the 410ci winged sprint car track championship at the high-banked dirt oval, which only has the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series weekend – a show-up points event – remaining on the schedule for the division.

“It was a little bit of an up-and-down night,” Starks said. “We were decent in qualifying and timed in second quickest, which wasn’t terrible because we went out last. In the heat race we were off in left field. Something was wrong and the car wasn’t driving the way it was supposed to.”

Starks placed fourth in the heat race and advanced into the dash.

“The dice roll put us on the pole for the dash,” he said. “We made some changes and won the dash, but it still wasn’t comfortable to drive. We went through everything before the feature and found out some things wrong in the front end. We got that straightened out and it was a lot better for the feature.

“We got the lead on the opening lap. It was smooth sailing after that. The race went green to checkered with no cautions. I ran the bottom for the first half of the race. When I got to traffic I started moving around. It was probably the most I had to move around at Skagit this year.”

Starks led the distance for his sixth victory of the season at Skagit Speedway and second in the 410 division.

“I want to thank the Wheatley Family and Morrison Racing Engines for loaning me a motor during Dirt Cup and last Saturday to be able to race,” he said. “I’m glad we were able to capitalize on another solid night.”

Starks plans on taking the next couple of weeks off before returning to Skagit Speedway on Aug. 27.

Alex Pokorski gets back on track with season-best 360 Sprint Car showing at Plymouth

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 2, 2022 – Two weeks after missing a scheduled Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association event following a harrowing flip into the turn four catch fence while running second in a Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car A main on Saturday, July 16, Alex Pokorski returned to the driver’s seat of the No. 4 Akright Auto Racing Team machine to post a season-best 13th-place finish in main event competition, during the Badger State Open Wheel special event Saturday, July 30 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

With the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series and Badger Midgets joining the Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Cars for the special all-open wheel program, Pokorski opened the night by turning in the 19th fastest overall qualifying lap in the 27-car 360 Sprint Car field with a time of 12.880 seconds around the third-mile clay oval.

The West Bend, Wis. driver then lined up sixth in the second 10-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car heat race and settled into sixth in the running order on the opening lap. On lap 6, Pokorski worked the inside lane to power underneath Tony Wondra and take over fifth, which is where he finished the race.

By improving one position in his heat race, Pokorski was able to earn a direct transfer into the 25-lap 360 Sprint Car A main where he rolled off from the 12th starting spot.

The third-year 360 Sprint Car driver fell back to 14th place by lap 5 of the main event as he stuck to the inside lane throughout the majority of the event. On lap 22 maneuvered his way past Jason Johnson to move into 13th place. Pokorski held on over the final three laps to post a season-best 13th-place A-main showing in a race won by Travis Arenz.

After heavy damage to the No. 4 Akright Auto Racing Team car sustained in a hard flip at The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, July 16 forced the team to miss an Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association event at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. on Sunday, July 17, Pokorski was thankful to tuck a solid night under his belt in his return to competition.

“It felt good to be racing again and the car handled well throughout the night,” Pokorski said. “I would’ve liked to move up a few more spots in the A main, but I was happy to keep the car in one piece and be able to focus on improving next week.”

This Saturday, Aug. 6 is the rescheduled inaugural Plymouth Racing Wall of Fame Induction Night with the new Wall of Fame display formally slated to debut underneath the grandstands and the Class of 2022 inductees recognized during intermission.

It is also Kids Autograph Night with backpack and checkered flag giveaways courtesy of Hopf Farms.

Spectator gates open at 4:30 p.m. with PDTR 360 Sprint Car group qualifying at 5:30 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m.

Mallett Scores Top Five During ASCS National Tour Speedweek Race at Tulsa Speedway

Inside Line Promotions – PARK CITY, Kan. (Aug. 2, 2022) – Jordon Mallett placed 10th in the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour’s Sizzlin’ Summer Speedweek standings.

A pair of top fives highlighted the spectacle, which was shortened after rain forced the cancelation of the final two nights last weekend.

“To be honest, I’m a bit disappointed,” Mallett said. “I just didn’t feel like we had a good chance to show the speed we had. Sometimes things just don’t go in the right direction.

“We had a good top five at Batesville and then we didn’t run good at Little Rock. Then we had another top five at Tulsa. Then the next two nights we didn’t run in the top 10. That was kind of aggravating because the results didn’t show our speed, but as competitive as everything is it all has to go right.”

Mallett fought ignition woes a week ago Tuesday at Tulsa Speedway in Tulsa, Okla.

“Right off the bat I had ignition problems and in qualifying I only got to do one lap, which wasn’t a good lap but was good enough to get us in the heat race inversion,” he said. “We fought ignition problems again in the heat race, but held onto second to punch our ticket into the show. We got it resolved for the feature, but the track was so narrow it was tough to pass on.”

Mallett, who qualified fourth quickest in his group and placed second in his heat race, advanced from eighth to fifth in the main event.

On Wednesday he qualified third in his group and won a heat race before ending 19th in the feature at Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kan.

“We were really, really good the last time we were there,” he said. “I messed up and got myself way too tight. I dialed myself out going off what worked there in the past and the track never progressed for that to shine. I lost a lot of spots within the first two or three laps. I was so tight I was pushing through the corners like a modified. As the race went on and the track started cleaning off and chattering tires I pulled off to save tire wear.”

Speedweek ended on Thursday at 81 Speedway, where Mallett was second quickest in his group. He finished fifth in a heat race and 12th in the A Main.

“They have new ownership,” he said. “I’ll give them credit; they did an awesome job with the facility. Everything is super nice. The dirt was 180 degrees different than anything I had notes on. The track used to slick off and be really abrasive on tires. It had some character and chop to it. It was super tacky, just wide open and hammer down all night long. It was tough to make up much ground.”

Mallett plans to return to action Aug. 12 at Lavonia Speedway in Lavonia, Ga., and Aug. 13 at Senoia Raceway in Senoia, Ga., with the USCS Series.

QUICK RESULTS –

July 26 – Tulsa Speedway in Tulsa, Okla. – Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 2 (1); Feature: 5 (8).

July 27 – Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kan. – Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 19 (5).

We’re thrilled to welcome them back as the primary partner for our team. I look forward to having a lot of success together. They’ve been a great supporter of us and we’re excited to welcome them back bigger and better than ever.”

Williamson Rallies From 21st to Seventh at Knoxville Raceway

Inside Line Promotions – KNOXVILLE, Iowa (Aug. 2, 2022) – Garet Williamson hustled from 21st to a seventh-place result last Saturday at Knoxville Raceway during his final appearance at the half-mile oval prior to the upcoming 360 Knoxville Nationals.

The Bryant Paver Motorsports driver qualified seventh quickest in his group before placing fifth in a heat race.

“We built a brand new car,” he said. “We qualified decent, but in our heat race I didn’t feel good at all. We came up with some ideas of what to change and us being in the B Main worked out well for us. We were really good and didn’t really change much going into the A Main.”

Williamson won the consolation race to transfer into the back of the main event.

“I had a really good race car to run wherever,” he said. “Normally we’ve started toward the front. It was nice to show we can start toward the back and be just as fast.”

Williamson’s 14 positions gained were the most of any driver to garner the Hard Charger Award. The seventh-place result was the team’s sixth top 10 of the season at Knoxville Raceway.

Next up is a return to the track for the 32nd annual 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank, which runs this Thursday through Saturday. Williamson’s preliminary night is Thursday.

“I feel really good,” he said. “I want to lock in and be a front runner in the A Main on Saturday. It all starts with what you draw on your prelim night. All your cards have to play out right. You have to qualify well, pass some cars in your heat race and have a strong run in the A Main to get good points going into Saturday night.”

QUICK RESULTS –

July 30 – Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa – Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 5 (3); B Main: 1 (2); Feature: 7 (21).

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Produce Fifth World of Outlaws Win of the Season

Inside Line Promotions – WEEDSPORT, N.Y. (Aug. 2, 2022) – David Gravel captured his fifth feature triumph of the season last Saturday at Weedsport Speedway, where he led the final 18 laps of the 30-lap Empire State Challenge Weekend opener.

It marked the seventh consecutive season that Gravel has earned at least five World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series wins and it was the second straight year that the Big Game Motorsports driver recorded a victory at the track.

“It was a great weekend,” he said. “We were able to win another race and nearly win the second night after starting ninth. You couldn’t ask for much more.

“Since the Eldora week we’ve been in contention to win more races and have been able to take advantage of that. It feels good to do that. We’re definitely better than we were and are trying to get back to how good we were at the beginning of the season.”

Gravel qualified fifth quickest on Saturday. A runner-up result in a heat race garnered a spot into the dash, which Gravel won after lining up on the outside of the front row. That gave him the pole position for the main event.

“Donny (Schatz) got the jump and I just paced myself,” he said. “As we got into lapped traffic I got the wing back and let the race play out. I got through lapped traffic well and was able to go into any lane and put lapped cars behind me and not slow down my pace.”

Gravel took the lead on Lap 13 and held on during a late-race restart for the win.

The team returned to the track on Sunday, when Gravel timed in ninth quickest. He finished where he started – third – in a heat race to line up on the inside of the fifth row in the A Main.

“We got a good jump in the feature and I was able to pass a couple of guys,” he said. “We got into the top five and made some moves around the outside. I got to second with 10 laps to go and knew I had a chance to win the race. We had a shot there. Lapped cars were on the outside and we were on the inside. I just didn’t have an opportunity to make a big leap at the leader, but overall it was a solid performance.”

Gravel’s charge to a runner-up result netted the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

The team will race this Friday and Saturday at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., during the Ironman 55 before heading to Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Sunday for the 11th annual Capitani Classic presented by Great Southern Bank.

Tim Kaeding puts on the charge to earn top-five with SCCT in Petaluma

By Gary Thomas

Petaluma, CA…Making one final start before an extended break in August, Bates-Hamilton Racing and driver Tim Kaeding headed for Petaluma Speedway this past Saturday, capping it all off with a charge from 13th to fifth in the feature.

As a car owner Josh Bates has experienced success in the past at the Petaluma 3/8 mile adobe clay oval, having brought home multiple track championships. The BHR team had speed at the track last month and looked to duplicate that on Saturday with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

Kaeding opened the event by qualifying fifth in his group, before also finishing fifth in the heat race. The San Jose competitor lined up 13th in the feature and after 35 hard laps of racing brought the Teichert Construction/ VinylTech PVC Pipe/ Clow Valve/ BenefitRFP No. 42X home in fifth.

“It was nice to have another solid finish at Petaluma Speedway on Saturday,” Kaeding said. “The track was an old school hooked up surface and we were fortunate to pick our way around guys methodically throughout the feature. I feel that we are sitting at a good point right now with some big shows coming up after this month. I look forward to heading back to the Midwest now to do some racing before we resume things with the BHR team at the end of August.”

As noted, Bates-Hamilton Racing will now take a few weeks off as Kaeding heads for the Midwest to take part in the prestigious Knoxville Nationals in Iowa. The veteran has experienced success at the blazing fast half-mile with three career Knoxville Nationals prelim victories to his credit.

The next scheduled event for the BHR No. 42x will be August 27th at the Stockton Dirt Track with the NARC Fujitsu 410 Sprint Cars.

Bates-Hamilton Racing would like to thank Teichert Construction, VinylTech PVC Pipe, Clow Valve, BenefitRFP, Dan Ewart Sales, B Scadden Design, Advanced Drainage Systems, Custom Pipe and Fabrication, Tigre, North Bay Waterworks, SIP, Star Pipe Products, Kaeding Performance, Kistler Engines, Maxim Chassis, Bell Helmets, K1 Race Gear, Warehouse Paint, Arbo Tech, Performance Powder Coating, Sellers Race Wings, Rod Tiner Racing, ART Enterprises, Tiner-Hirst Enterprise and Vanlare Steering Repair for their support this season.

“It feels good to be right there. I knew it was going to be tough to get by Donny in the slick, but we were able to maintain speed and keep ourselves in the hunt all 30 laps and that feels really good,” Zearfoss said, who now owns three top-five finishes this season. “Hats off to my team and all of my supporters. It’s been an up and down year, the ups are certainly becoming more frequent.”

GETTYSBURG, Pa.

Dewease finished second in each of the 20-lap programs, but Dietrich’s win propelled the Gettysburg native to the overall best finish award.

“We’re just going to keep this momentum going,” Danny Dietrich said, who was winless at Port Royal in 2022 prior to Living Legends weekend. “Hats off to my guys. It’s fun when you’re winning, and right now we’re having a blast. There is still a lot of season left, so we’re going to do whatever we can to keep the wins coming.”

GRIMES, Iowa (August 1, 2022) – It has been an impressive season, to say the least, for Grimes, Iowa’s Ryan Giles and Ryan Giles Racing, and with the biggest 360 sprint car event of the season just days away, it is the perfect time of year to be on a hot streak. Ultimately, the goal is to transfer all momentum earned into a 360 Knoxville Nationals championship.

Giles, ace of the Albaugh LLC., Iowa Barnstormers, Hicklin Powersports, Barron Equipment, Omega Concrete Mixers, No. 9 sprint car, finished fourth in his most recent visit to the Sprint Car Capital of the World, pushing his top-ten streak to five consecutive since returning to his family-owned ride. The former Knoxville Raceway 360 Rookie of the Year kicked-off the program with the fastest overall qualifying time, winning his respective heat race from fourth shortly thereafter. Giles battled as high as second before settling into the fourth position.

There were over 40 cars entered for what was the final 360 Knoxville Nationals test session of the season.

“What a night for this team. We have one goal in mind, and I think everyone knows what that is,” Giles explained, a former 360 Knoxville Nationals preliminary night winner. “All we can do is keep doing what we’ve been doing and the results will come. The 360 Nationals is our Super Bowl…everyone will be on their A-game and it’s up to us to rely on the last few weeks to get us into a position to win.

“Hats off to everyone involved,” Giles added. “We put this deal together in a hurry and we’ve been quick ever since. I owe it all to those in the pits, as well as those named on the car.”

ON DECK:
Ryan Giles and Ryan Giles Racing (360 Sprint Car) will continue their 2022 campaign with the annual 360 Knoxville Nationals at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Thursday through Saturday, August 4-6. Giles is set to qualify on Thursday.

TKS Motorsports and Ian Madsen look ahead to Knoxville’s Capitani Classic

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MITCHELLVILLE, Iowa (August 1, 2022) - Although TKS Motorsports and Ian Madsen may have missed main event action on Saturday night, joining the All Star Circuit of Champions for their first and only Knoxville Raceway visit of the season, the Mitchellville, Iowa-based open wheel team used the evening as a proper test session, aiming big for upcoming starts in Knoxville’s annual Capitani Classic and Knoxville Nationals.

Madsen, driver of Troy Renfro’s Albaugh LLC, Iowa Barnstormers, deWit Construction, Jersey Freeze, JR-1, No. 2KS sprint car, joined a field of 55 for the All Star invasion on Saturday night, kicking things off with the sixth-fastest qualifying time in his respective group. The St. Mary’s, NSW, Australia, native would go on to finish fifth in his heat, missing a transfer by one position, all before racing on to finish seventh in the All Star B-Main. Not helping their cause, a bad initial start call on Madsen at the beginning of the evening’s B-Main pushed him back a row; he had to restart eighth rather than sixth.

“We’re still learning about this JR-1 car, but we learned a lot on Saturday and we plan to put it to good use on Sunday at the Capi,” Troy Renfro, owner of the familiar No. 2KS, stated. “It’s been a trying year for our team, but we never give up. A few great nights during the Capitani Classic and Knoxville Nationals will change a lot of perceptions. All we can do is keep working hard and the results will come. We know Ian has the ability to turn some heads.”

ON DECK:
TKS Motorsports and Ian Madsen will continue their 2022 campaign with Knoxville Raceway’s annual Capitani Classic on Sunday, August 7; a preamble to the coveted Knoxville Nationals which kicks-off Wednesday, August 10.

Overall, it was a solid weekend and we’re pleased with it, especially with slower, slick tracks not being our strong suit,” Bayston said. “I feel like we made substantial progress this weekend. We made a lot of changes that helped with the overall balance of the car and they really seemed to help us at Weedsport.”

Series: All Star Circuit of Champions
Track: Knoxville Raceway (Knoxville, Iowa)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 1st (8th)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (August 1, 2022) - After a steering gear issue negated a potential podium result one night prior in I-70 Motorsports Park’s $26,000-to-win Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race, St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu was a man on a mission Saturday night at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, driving on to tally his first All Star Circuit of Champions victory of the season, and in convincing fashion, to boot.

Abreu’s victory, resulting in an $8,000 payday, commenced from the outside of row four, securing the top spot on lap 21 with an epic slider in turn three to move around “Sunshine” Tyler Courtney and race long leader, Kerry Madsen.

Despite a last-ditch effort by the “Madman,” attempting a slider in the final corner of the 25-lap affair, Madsen was forced to settle for second, followed by Courtney, Gio Scelzi, and Brian Brown.

There were 55 cars on hand for the All Stars’ lone visit to Knoxville Raceway. Abreu is now a two-time winner in 2022, his first occurring at Grandview Speedway during Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek; he earned $10,000.

Other recent All Star highlights for Rico Abreu includes a top-five appearance at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Missouri, on Saturday, July 23. The ace of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Rowdy Energy/Curb Records/Wiser Agency/Toste Construction/No. 24 sprint car started 15th on the Beach Brawl finale A-Main grid and climbed to fifth.

“I just can’t thank my team, Ricky, Zack and Walker, enough for their hard work this year. These guys believe in me and I can see it in their eyes. To go out and win at Knoxville, and right before the Nationals, will do a lot for our confidence. Ricky Warner has done so much for our operation and the results speak for themselves,” Rico Abreu noted. “I want to thank the fans for coming out and supporting us. We have some of the best fans in the world, and their love and support makes winning so much sweeter.”

ON DECK:
Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with the annual Ironman 55 at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Missouri, on Friday and Saturday, August 5-6.

2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Fifth | 5912 points [172 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (August 1, 2022) - It was an all but perfect weekend for Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, securing not only one, but two podium performances in Weedsport Speedway’s Empire State Challenge, one of which a victory to conclude the weekend’s doubleheader on Sunday, July 31.

Schatz, ace of the Advance Auto Parts, Carquest, Ford Motor Company, Ford Performance, Curb Records, Sage Fruit, Digital Ally, Absolute Automation and Security, Hunt Brothers Pizza, Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts, No. 15 sprint car, led all 30 circuits on Sunday night, securing his second victory of the 2022 season - his first in 42 races - as well as his third overall at Weedsport. Impressive enough, Schatz swept the evening’s preliminary events; setting quick time, followed by heat race and dash victories.

The ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion and Fargo, North Dakota, native, is now a 304-time World of Outlaws winner, forced to outduel David Gravel and Logan Schuchart to secure his additional winning tally.

“In my 26 years, I was always taught to worry about what is in front of you, and not what is behind you,” Schatz said of his mindset. “As long as I’m doing things right, then it’s their job to pass me so I’m not going to change what I’m doing for what hasn’t impacted me yet.”

One night prior, Schatz finished second, maintaining his place on the podium after starting in the exact same position.

“You hear fans talk about how unique this Weedsport is, but I wish you could see it from our perspective,” Schatz said on the track’s layout. “It’s just different. You have to be on your game 110% of the time and that makes it a ton of fun to race. I’m glad we could pick up another win here.”

Brian Brown consistent with All Stars through Missouri and Iowa; 360 Knoxville Nationals ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (August 1, 2022) - Joining the All Star Circuit of Champions in their final Midwest appearance of the season, Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing put together a consistent weekend against “America’s Series,” not only securing a pair of top-ten finishes, but highlighting the two-race campaign with a fifth-place outcome at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, July 30.

Although far from a stranger at Knoxville Raceway, a 59-time winner to be exact which places Brown third on the track’s all-time win list, Brown was forced to duel against a competitive field of 55, kicking things off with the second-fastest time in his respective qualifying group. A heat race victory shortly thereafter would seal Brown’s appearance in the evening’s dash; he would finish sixth.

One night prior in the $26,000-to-win Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race at I-70 Motorsports Park in Odessa, Missouri, a mere-15 minute drive from his childhood home in Higginsville, Missouri, “Blackjack” finished seventh, kicking off the evening with the fourth-fastest qualifying effort, driving on to win his respective heat race. Brown started third on the evening’s A-Main grid.

“We put together a consistent weekend and I’m super proud of this Casey’s/FVP team. Everyone works so hard and we wouldn’t be able to accomplish what we do without their hard work and dedication,” Brown, driver of the Casey’s, FVP, Andy’s Frozen Custard, Rowdy Energy, No. 21 sprint car, said. “To have the opportunity to race so close to home on Friday night at I-70 is pretty special, and we were thrilled to have our friends from Andy’s Frozen Custard there with us. We wanted to win that $26,000 Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race check for them, but to earn a top-ten is something we can all celebrate.”

ON DECK: Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with the annual 360 Knoxville Nationals at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Thursday through Saturday, August 4-6, all of which followed by Knoxville Raceway’s annual Capitani Classic on Sunday, August 7; a preamble to the coveted Knoxville Nationals which kicks-off Wednesday, August 10.

Kerry Madsen 2nd at Knoxville Nationals Tune Up

PETERSEN MEDIA- Taking part in Saturday’s All Star Circuit of Champions event at Knoxville Raceway for one final tune up before the impending Knoxville Nationals, Kerry Madsen had one of his best runs of the season to date as he led a majority of the feature event before settling for a second place finish.

“The last few weeks we have been a little off, but Saturday night we are on point all night long and had a very good car,” Madsen said. “I made a mistake in traffic that cost us the lead late, and I hate shot on the last lap but thought better of forcing the issue. I really want to thank Dennis and Teresa Roth for continuing to stick with us.”

With a robust 55 cars on hand for the Knoxville tune up, Madsen flexed his muscle early as he timed the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Toyota TRD backed No. 83jr in fastest overall in qualifying time trials.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Madsen would simply need to finish inside the Top-Four to transfer into the feature as well as the all-important Dash based on his qualifying efforts.

On a very slick Knoxville Raceway surface, ‘The Mad Man’ would work to third when the race came to life. Hanging on to third at the line, Madsen would indeed advance into the Dash where he drew the ‘one’ to set the starting lineup.

Wiring the field from start to finish, Madsen would pocket the win and earn the right to lead the field to green for the 25-lap feature event.

As the green light flashed, Madsen was hard on the throttle as the Toyota powered Roth Motorsports entry jumped out to the early lead and quickly opened a comfortable advantage over the field.

Continuing to set a torrid pace, Madsen would reach the back end of the field just before the halfway point of the feature and he would see his lead shrink as he began the lapping process.

With Tyler Courtney closing in on him, Courtney would battle for the lead just to see the caution fly and take the leaders out of traffic. Once back underway, Madsen would again pull out to a comfortable lead with just 10-laps left in the feature.

As the laps clicked off, Madsen would encounter traffic again with just a handful of laps left in the ‘A’. As it again forced him to change his line, Rico Abreu was able to close in on Madsen and take advantage as he ripped by for the race lead.

With Abreu out front, Madsen would keep him in striking distance and as he bobble in front of the field it allowed Madsen to close in and pressure for the win over the final two laps.

Having a couple of opportunities late, Madsen opted to not force any issues as he capped his night off with a second-place finish.

“I felt really good, the guys felt really good, and I excited to get back to the Nationals in a couple of weeks,” Madsen said. “We have been solid at Knoxville all year, but we were really strong on Saturday. Thank you again to everyone who makes this all possible.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, Toyota, TRD, Jason, Tara, And Cole Roth Cattle Co., Roth Investments, Speedway Engines, Mobil1, FK Rod Ends, Vahlco Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Smith Titanium for their support.

Fuel Issues Slow Faccinto at Petaluma Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Even though mechanical issues ultimately sidelined Michael Faccinto and the F&F Racing team on Saturday night during the Sprint Car Challenge Tour’s stop at Petaluma Speedway, Faccinto was happy with the speed the team had before their issues as he eagerly awaits this week’s return to Placerville Speedway.

“We had a night where we fought issues all night long, and couldn’t quite get it fixed,” Faccinto said. “I have to thank the F&F guys for being relentless, and I am happy to have some positives to take into this weekend.”

Having a good start to his night, Faccinto timed the Bushey Financial Services/C&H Motor Parts/Lucas Oil backed No. x1 entry in third fastest in his qualifying group.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Faccinto made quick work of the field as he ran the Petaluma Speedway to perfection and earned the win thus solidifying himself a spot in the night’s High Sierra Industries Dash.

Taking the green flag from fourth in the Dash, Faccinto’s night would take a turn as fuel issues began to hinder his night. Getting into the corner, Faccinto’s entry would fall on its face and lose power.

Slipping back to finish sixth, Faccinto and crew would go to work under the hood in preparations for the impending feature event.

Hoping they had the issue rectified, Faccinto took the green flag for the feature event from the sixth starting position, but on the race’s opening lap the problem persisted and Faccinto was forced to call it an early night in Petaluma, CA.

“We had a lot of people trying to help, but unfortunately it was one of those issues we couldn’t solve as the track,” Faccinto said. “Thanks to the guys for their hard work, and looking forward to returning to Placerville on Saturday.”

F&F Racing would like to thank Bushey Financial Services, C&H Motor Parts, Lucas Oil, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, Pacific Highway Rentals, PitStopUSA, FVP, CRV Carbon Solutions, American River Overhead Door, All Pro Heads, Engler, and Don Ott Racing Engines for their support.

ON TAP: F&F Racing will be back in action on Saturday night in Placerville, CA.

Paul Nienhiser Picks Up Historical MOWA Win at Jacksonville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Chasing after his share of the all-time MOWA wins lead since 2019, the pandemic and several weather cancelations had continued to deter Paul Nienhiser’s efforts. That changed on Friday night when Nienhiser picked up the hometown win and moved into a tie with Jerrod Hull in the MOWA history book.

“My dad and I did a lot of work to get our 410ci ready for Friday night, and I entered the night feeling pretty confident,” Nienhiser said. “To finally get this win and tie Jerrod Hull is really special, and to do it at home is the icing on the cake.”

With MOWA not using time trials in their format, Nienhiser got the night off to a strong start as he bested the field on the speed chart in warmups aboard the CAM2 Lubricants/Buffalo Wild Wings/Innovative Design backed No. 9x.

Lining up fourth in his heat race, Nienhiser quickly moved into second as he then closed in on the race lead. Pulling up to the leader’s rear-end, a narrow racing surface would keep Nienhiser from making a move to net the win, however his second-place finish would put him in the nightly redraw.

Pulling the ‘five’, the Chapin, IL driver took the green flag from the third row on a surface that had dried out and widened out from heat race competition.

Paying homage to a local family, Friday’s event was dubbed ‘The Standridge’ and offered some extra money up for grabs. When the race came to life, Nienhiser mirrored his heat race start as he quickly worked into the second position.

Chasing after the race lead, Nienhiser would be in prime position to take over the stop spot as the leader had trouble on the cushion and got into the wall.

Once out front, Nienhiser was able to set sail on the field and race to his third overall win of the season and this one moved him into the all-time MOWA Wins lead as he now sits tied with Jerrod Hull.

Also, in action in the 305ci class on Friday night, Nienhiser would pick up a win in his heat race, and subsequently found himself on the pole of the feature event. With issues at the end of his heat, his team was forced to change a magneto at the track and just got him out for the feature event.

Battling hard for the race lead, Nienhiser with dance with disaster as he caught a rut and did everything but flip. Allowing the leader to get away, Nienhiser was able to get his mount settled down as he maintained second and race on to a runner up finish.

Saturday night the scene shifted to Macon Speedway in Illinois for another round of MOWA action as Nienhiser looked to take sole possession of the series’ all-time wins list.

Lining up sixth in his heat race, Nienhiser carved his way forward as he would finish second and earn high point honors for the night. Pulling the six, Nienhiser had his work cut out for himself as the track was extremely worn out and on the verge of taking rubber as he rolled out for the feature event.

Needing to make his moves early, Nienhiser powered his way into third when the race came to life. As he moved into third, he made a move into second in the closing stages of the race only to see his pass be negated by a subsequent yellow flag.

As rubber continued to go down the track, Nienhiser would make another move for the position with five to go as he got out of the rubber, but he would lose the handle and go into a spin cycle.

Able to keep his car under power, Nienhiser would settle into the ninth spot where he went on to finish.

“I really want to say how grateful I am for everyone that helps each week,” Nienhiser said. “Ralph, Drake, Caleb, Greg, Eldon, Tom, Roger, Craig, and CJ make this all possible and I am truly thankful. These guys have so much sweat invested in our program, and none of the past nine years would have been possible without all of them. I also want to thank my Dad for everything he has done for me over my career. His efforts to tear into the car and get things right made Friday possible. I also want to thank Caleb for his efforts with the 305, Tim Engler for his continued support, and the Littletons for loaning us a Mag to run the 305ci feature. I have been fortunate to have some great sponsors over the years and they have allowed us to top notch equipment and compete at a high-level to get these 22 MOWA wins. I can’t wait to get No. 23.”

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Lubricants, Buffalo Wild Wings, Innovative Design, Mason Sound, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Signature Signs & Design, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, American Rental Center, Fierce Herbicide, Guse’s Pub & Eatery, Wessler Bros Agency, Willhite Mowing, T&K Tree Services, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Midland Performance, Simpson Race Products, Smith Titanium, and Premier Powder Coating for their continued support.

Nienhiser would also like to thank Midland Performance, Kinney Racing Engines, Rockstar Wraps, Heartland Trailer Manufacturing, Robert’s Tire Center, and Stronghurst Collision for their support of the No. 50 car.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-19, Wins-3, Top 5’s-12, Top 10’s-16

Justin Sanders Picks Up Four Consecutive Wins Amidst Dominant Showing at Speedweek Northwest; Knoxville Week Awaits with Swindell Speed Lab

PETERSEN MEDIA: Justin Sanders had a speed week for the ages. Kicking things off with a trio of podiums, Sanders ended as good as possible as he won all four races at Cottage Grove Speedway including the Marvin Smith Memorial to cap off a Speedweek Championship.

“Despite running really well at Skagit and Sunset, the car felt off and I leaned on my buddy Wayne Priddy for some help,” Justin Sanders said. “Putting our heads together helped as we had nearly four perfect nights of racing.”

Getting back up to Skagit Speedway for the Summer Nationals after a strong showing at June’s Dirt Cup, Sanders was equally as impressive as he charged from 19th to second on the first night and locked into Saturday’s finale.

Battling with Trey Starks and Tanner Holmes during Saturday’s finale, Sanders earned a third-place finish before Speedweek headed south and invaded Oregon.

Getting to Banks, OR Sanders would have a good run as he ripped around the fence to pocket another third-place finish, but he still felt like the Farmers Brewing/Mittry Construction/North County Plastering No. 2x had more.

Going to work before four nights of racing at Cottage Grove Speedway, Sanders would be rewarded for his hard work.

Tuesday and Wednesday night, Sanders flexed his muscle as he was able to pick up wins during the first two nights of action with Thursday’s scheduled off day the only thing that slowed him down.

Continuing to look for more speed, Sanders came back on Friday night just as good as he made quick work of the field at the scenic mile bullring nestled in Cottage Grove, OR and picked up his 11th win of the season.

Looking to go a perfect four for four at Cottage Grove Speedweek to cap the week off and give him even more confidence heading into Knoxville, Sanders would again steal the show.

Showing the fans in Oregon what his California contingent has witnessed the last few years, Sanders would not be denied as he capped off the Cottage Grove Sweep with a Marvin Smith Memorial win.

“We were a Rocketship at Cottage Grove, and to sweep the week is pretty amazing,” Sanders added.

With Northwest Speedweek in the books, Sanders now turns his attention to the biggest stretch of racing in his career, Southern Iowa Speedweeks which will include the Knoxville 360ci Nationals, the Capitani Classic, the Front Row Challenge, and the Knoxville Nationals all before taking part in the High Limit Series’ inaugural event in Putnamville, IN.

Sanders is eager for a great opportunity to take the wheel of the famed Swindell Speed Lab No. 39.

“Getting the chance to work with Kevin Swindell and his crew is really cool, and I am really thankful for the opportunity to battle against the best in the world the next few weeks,” Sanders said. “I think running with a former driver turned mechanic will suit me very well and I know the car will be really good. It will be up to me get up to speed as fast as I can.”

Justin and his team would like to thank Farmers Brewing, Mittry Construction, North County Plastering, Alkaline88, Andy’s Construction, Roadside 24hr Service, Wicked Cushion, Roger’s Diner, Factory Kahne, BG Labels and Tee’s, Walker Performance Filtration, Dixon and Son Tires, Ernie’s Service Center, East Lake Village, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., DMI, Keizer Wheels, Wings Unlimited, Ti64 Titanium, AIS Heating and Sheet Metal, Fred Lint and Family, JonSan Racing, Sandblast Service, G&N Construction, Steitz Towing, Durden Construction, Ernie’s Service Center, and Steve Duppman Racing for their continued support in 2022.

ON TAP: Sanders will now travel to Knoxville, IA and take part in this weekend’s Knoxville 360 Nationals in the Swindell Speed Lab No. 39.

Schuett, Arenz, Boden stand tall as Plymouth Badger State Open Wheel masters

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 30, 2022 – It was a Wisconsin open wheel race fans paradise as the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series, Plymouth Dirt Track Racing-Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Cars and Badger Midgets converged on The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. for the Badger State Open Wheel special three-division racing program Saturday, July 30.

Kyle Schuett of Philo, Ill. notched his first career IRA 410 Sprint Car Series A-main victory in flag-to-flag fashion in the 30-lapmain event.

Defending PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion and current points leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan executed a late-race pass to secure his sixth 25-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main triumph of the 2022 campaign.

Zach Boden of Cambridge made it two-for-two on the season at The Plymouth Dirt Track as he notched his second Badger Midget A-main victory of the season in the 25-lap main event.

Kyle Schuett, who started on the pole, outpowered two-time IRA champion Scotty Neitzel of Beaver Dam, who started second, to take the lead on the opening lap of the 30-lap IRA A main.

By lap 5, Schuettrode the cushion to build up a full straightaway cushion over IRA rookie Tyler Tischendorf, who started third. Schuett caught the back of the 22-car field on lap six before the red flag appeared on lap 7 when two-time IRA champion and current points leader Jake Blackhurst of Hanna City, Ill. flipped in turn two.

Following the restart, Neitzel ducked low to power past Tischendorf to take over the runner-up spot exiting turn four on lap 8. Two laps later, Jordan Goldesberry, who started fourth, followed Neitzel into third in the running order.

Schuett began to encounter lapped traffic on lap 13, which allowed Neitzel to close in on lap 18. As the leaders continued to weave their way through heavy lapped traffic, eighth starter Danny Schlafer of Sussex moved in to slip past Neitzel in turn four on lap 28.

On the final lap, Schlafer dove low to briefly pull alongside the highgroove hugging Schuett. However, Schuett used the momentum of the outside line to power away from Schlafer down the backstretch and through the final two turns en route to his initial IRA A-main triumph.

Schlafer had to settle for second, Neitzel placed third, Goldesberry took fourth and 2016 IRA champion Jeremy Schultz of Beaver Dam rounded out the top five, after starting seventh.

Polesitter Lance Fassbender of Burnett took the lead on the opening lap of the PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Car A main as outside front row starter Bill Taylor of Boltonville slipped into second.

Fassbender, who captured the 2008 PDTR 360 Sprint Car championship, held tight to the low groove with Taylor following closely in his tire tracks through the opening laps of the race. On lap 8, Travis Arenz, who started eighth, worked his way into fourth before using a high move to seize third on lap 10.

As the leader encountered lapped traffic, Arenz capitalized by bolting past Taylor into second in turn one on lap 18. Meanwhile, Fassbender was finding the going challenging at the front of the field as he tried in vain to work around a lapped car, which allowed the stalking Arenz to pounce.

When Fassbender drifted high, Arenz dove low to seize the top spot entering turn one on lap 20. Arenz then pulled away to notch his sixth PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory of the 2022 season in nine attempts, 16th career PDTR 360 Sprint Car main event win and 28th career Midwest Sprint Car Association A-main triumph in the caution-free race.

Fassbender finished second, Taylor was third, Robbie Pribnow of Lomira, who started fourth, steered the No. 47 car normally driven by Blake Wondra to fourth and ninth starter Tim Haddy of Waupun placed fifth.

The initial start of the 25-lap Badger Midgets A main was aborted when Jordan Nelson of Colgate flipped in turn two.

2016 PDTR Micro Sprint champion Zach Boden, who lined up fifth on the original start, used a huge run along the low groove to seize the lead in turn four on the opening lap as Daltyn England of Springfield, Ill., who started second, settled into second.

On lap 3, seventh starter Jack Routson of Waterman, Ill. worked is way underneath England to move into second and quickly set his sights on Boden. Routson was closing in on the lead when a caution flag was displayed on lap 9 after Trey Weishoff of Sun Prairie stopped along the backstretch.

When the race resumed, Routson was hustling his car to keep pace with Boden at the front of the field when he jumped the cushion and spun in turn two on lap 13 to bring out the third yellow/red flag of the race.

After another yellow flag on the restart for an incident involving Dave Collins of Lake Mills and Cody Weisensel of Sun Prairie in turn two on lap 13, Boden again pulled away while 16th starter Jake Neuman worked the high line to move into third on lap 16 and second on lap 17.

On lap 23, the red flag was displayed when Charles Rufi of New Glarus flipped in turn two to set up a green-white-checked flag finish. Boden held strong on the restart to hold off the hard-charging Neuman on the way to his second main event victory of the 2022 season at The Plymouth Dirt Track and his third career Badger Midgets A-main win.

Neuman was second, England placed third, sixth starter Kyle Stark of Marshall took fourth and Kevin Douglas of Madison, who starter ninth, wound up fifth.

Jordan Goldesberry was the IRA 410 Sprint Car fast qualifier with a lap of 11.750 seconds.

In his first start of the 2022 season, Jason Johnsonof Campbellsport was the fastest PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Car overall qualifier with a lap of12.366 seconds.

Jake Neuman earned the Badger Midgets fast qualifier award with a lap of 13.749 seconds.

Tony Wondra of Campbellsport won the 12-lap 360 Sprint Car B main.

Jake Neuman won the 10-lap Badger Midgets B Main.

The ninth full PDTR program of the 2022 campaign, which was sponsored by Jensen Sales and Service, drew a total field of 76 cars, including 22 IRA 410 Sprint Cars, 27 PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Cars and 27 Badger Midgets.

Doran Racing’s Swanson Dominates

Inaugural Gene Nolen Classic

At Anderson Speedway Saturday Night

ANDERSON, Ind., July 31 —It was fitting that the driver who won the inaugural Gene Nolen Classic Saturday night at Anderson Speedway was the same driver who gave the late Little 500 Hall of Fame team owner something he had pursued for years — a Little 500 victory.

Kody Swanson dominated Saturday’s 100-lap race, part of the 500 Sprint Car Tour. Driving the Doran Racing No. 44 sponsored by Henry Repeating Arms, Glenn Farms and Duncan Oil, he led the last 86 laps and won by 3.223 seconds, lapping through seventh place.

Swanson won the Little 500 at this same high-banked asphalt quarter-mile oval while driving for Nolen Racing in 2018 and 2019.

Swanson, a native of Kingsburg, Calif., who now lives in Indianapolis, was the fastest qualifier in the field of 25 but he had to start fourth due to the series’ policy of inverting a varying number of the top starters in each race.

He passed his former teammate, Shane Hollingsworth, for third in Turn 1 at the start.

When Jacob McElfresh passed polesitter Brian Gerster on lap nine to take the lead, Swanson went with him and moved into second place.

He took the lead from McElfresh on lap 15.

“I used a diamond move,” Swanson related afterwards. “I went high in Turn 3 and got a good run off Turn 4. We ran side by side for the lead for about a lap before I could clear him.”

He led the rest of the race in the Lebanon, Ohio-based team’s No. 44, picking his way carefully through lapped traffic while keeping an advantage of over a second over all his challengers with his car, which is powered by a Binks-prepped Chevy V8 engine.

There were only two caution flags in the race and they both came early, causing a long green-flag run for the last half of the race.

Yellow-flag laps didn’t count. Swanson’s lead of 1.289 seconds over Hollingsworth disappeared with 25 laps down after Derek Bischak spun and kept going in Turn 2 to bring out the first caution.

Swanson had a 1.221-second lead over Hollingsworth when the second yellow waved on lap 40. That caution was caused after there was contact between Taylor Ferns and Swanson’s brother, Tanner, which caused Tanner Swanson to hit the wall. A suspension piece broke on his car and he was forced to come to a stop low in Turn 2.

Kody Swanson got a great restart, however, and he quickly rebuilt his lead over Hollingsworth. He was over 3 seconds ahead by lap 60. The gap narrowed now and then as he dealt with lapped traffic, but it was over 5 seconds with 10 laps remaining.

The series points leader, Dakoda Armstrong, passed Hollingsworth for second on lap 94, but he was too far behind to mount a challenge to Swanson. Hollingsworth finished third. Ferns placed fourth and Bobby Santos III rounded out the top five.

Swanson won the pole on Saturday afternoon with a time of 11.166 seconds. He set the fastest lap of anyone in the race when he was timed in 11.418 seconds on lap 28.

The race was presented by The Tin Plate Fine Foods and Spirits and CB Fabricating. All of the series’ races are streamed live by MAVTV on Flo Racing.

Swanson was third in the point standings going into Saturday’s event, 29 points behind the leader, Armstrong. Coming out of it he is unofficially in second place, just eight points behind Armstrong.

The next 500 Sprint Car Tour race is tomorrow night (Monday, Aug. 1) at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park in Brownsburg, Ind. General admission is free for this event, which was postponed in March due to rain.

Although Swanson made Saturday night’s victory look easy, he said “it was nerve-wracking in traffic.

“This series doesn’t allow any radios, so without a spotter I had no idea how close second place was,” he said. “I was trying not to lose the lead while still being careful and pick my way through the lapped traffic.”

Swanson’s spotter in other series is his wife, Jordan, who offers valuable insight as well as letting him know how close he is to the cars around him.

“Our car was really good,” he continued. “This racetrack has been tricky this year, and it’s been tough to tell what we’ve needed on shorter or longer runs to be better. We had a little of both tonight, and I’m glad we were still hanging in there since the last half of the race went green.

“Our tires were pretty worn, but I think that just about all of us were sliding around at the end,” he added.

“I was trying to be careful in traffic; I’m glad we were able to finish it off. I appreciate the support of our sponsors and all the efforts of the men and women on this Doran Racing team. Everyone on this team tries to give us the best chance we can to win.”

Winning a race named in memory of his former team owner was very meaningful.

“I hope Gene would be happy about it,” Swanson said. “I spent a lot of time with the Nolen Racing team. Gene and I were friends, and we became family when we raced together. And that friendship has continued now with Gene’s son, Greg. I’m thankful to Anderson Speedway for putting on this event.

“It means a lot to me to win a race in his memory. I was looking through some photos of us at sprint car races and Silver Crown races today. I have lots of special memories to look back on. It makes me get choked up when I think about it. Winning the inaugural Gene Nolen Classic is very meaningful to me, and I’d like to think that Gene would be pleased.”

RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR REGULARS JOE MARTIN & LOGAN ROBERSON PICK UP WINS AFTER TYLER COUNTY RAINS OUT; CAREER 1ST RUSH SPORTSMAN MODIFIED WIN FOR JACOB JORDAN COMES AT PITTSBURGH; JOHN MOLLICK WINS HIS 1ST RUSH SPRINT CAR RACE SINCE 2019
By Marcie Barlow

(July 29, 2022) -
(Pulaski, PA)...The "RUSH Summer Showcase" highlighted this week’s Hovis Auto and Truck Supply RUSH Racing Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants action as Daryl Charlier (Late Models), Garrett Krummert (Sportsman Modifieds) and John Mollick (Sprints) scored victories. Other winners in RUSH Late Model action included Joe Martin, Logan Roberson, Chris Fleming and Jason Knowles. Jacob Jordan picked up his career first victory in Sportsman Modified action at PPMS and veteran Dennis Lunger continued to tally up wins in RUSH Pro Mod action.

Lernerville Speedway hosted the third annual "RUSH Summer Showcase" which saw 79 competitors compete in the three Chevrolet Performance crate engine divisions. Jeremy Wonderling led the first circuit of the 30-lap RUSH Late Model main event before veteran Daryl Charlier took the top spot. Charlier then masterfully maneuvered through lapped traffic to score the $3,000 Flynn's Tire Touring Series victory by 3.326 over Wonderling. Charlier became the ninth different winner in 12 Tour races this year. Kyle Lukon, David Pangrazio and Joe Martin completed the top five.

The Hovis Auto and Truck Supply RUSH Sportsman Modified main event was led to the green by veteran Rob Kristyak and Brandon Ritchey. Kristyak powered by Ritchey with Justin Shea following him to take the second spot. Kristyak encountered lapped traffic with ten to go and this allowed Ayden Cirpriano and 11th place starter Garrett Krummert to close in. Cautions slowed the field on laps 21 and 22 and provided Krummert with the opportunity needed to challenge for the lead. The West Middlesex, PA driver got by Cipriano when the action resumed and went around Kristyak to score the win by 0.375 seconds. Krummert became the third different Flynn's Tire Tour winner in three races this year. Cipriano recorded his best Tour finish and came home in second. Kristyak fell back to third. J.C. Boyer and Shea completed the top five.

Brian Hartzell led the first 13 circuits of the Hovis RUSH Sprint Car finale and appeared to be on his way to his career first victory before John Mollick took command. Mollick went on to score the win in the non-stop event that was completed in just under seven minutes. It was Mollick's second career RUSH Sprint win, but first since July 27, 2019 at Pittsburgh and first ever at Lernerville. Hartzell held on for the runner-up spot with rookie Zack Wilson finishing third. Gale Ruth, Jr. and Joe Buccola finished fourth and fifth respectively.

With the RUSH Late Model rainout at Tyler County for the Flynn's Tire Tour, two Tour drivers in Joe Martin and Logan Roberson were able to go elsewhere and pick up victories.

Tim Shaffer and Martin led the RUSH Late Model field to the green Saturday at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. Shaffer led the first circuit before Martin took over the top spot. Martin pulled away from the field while Shaffer, Jeremy Wonderling and Phillip Bubeck battled for second. Bubeck took the second position from Wonderling on lap 12 and Wonderling then got shuffled back to fourth by Shaffer on the next lap. Wonderling slowed to bring out the event’s lone caution on the 16th circuit. This set up a four lap dash to the checkered with Martin picking up his first PPMS victory of 2022 over Shaffer, Bubeck, Brady Wonderling and Brandon Burgoon.

The RUSH Sportsman Modifieds were also in action at the Imperial, PA oval on Saturday night. Jacob Jordan led the entire 15-lap distance to score his career first career victory over Weekly Series points leader Kole Holden, Ayden Cipriano, Cole Edwards and Lucas Canon.

Roberson meanwhile hustled back to compete at Winchester and the move paid off. Making his first visit at the Virginia oval since April 30, Roberson remained undefeated in 2022 with his third win over a strong 23-car field worth $1,215. Roberson inherited the lead after Kyle Hardy and Daniel Brown, Jr. tangled. Bubby Tharp, Jr. was a season best second over Mike Franklin. Keith Walls also turned in his best performance of the season in fourth with Winchester RUSH "Track Pack" points leader, Travis Campbell in fifth.

Joe Layfield and Clayton Tarabori led the RUSH Late Model main event to the green at Woodhull Raceway on Saturday night, but it was third place starter Jason Knowles who wasted little time in taking the lead. Knowles went on to lead the main event and score his third victory of the season at the New York facility. The Knowles brothers have won eight of the 12 features this season. Rookie competitor Aaron Miller came home in second. Tarabori was third for the sixth time in seven starts this year! Brian Knowles was fourth over Brett Marlatt.

At Stateline Speedway it was another “Jason”, Jason Genco, who bested the 23-car RUSH Late Model field to pick up his second win of the season at the New York facility. Genco has yet to finish outside the podium this year at Stateline as he continues to lead the "Track Pack" and National Weekly Series standings. Veteran Scott Gurdak finished second with Jeff Hoffman in third. David Parker and Matt Sipes rounded out the top five. Stateline has averaged 25 RUSH Late Models per night this year!

Chris Flemming tallied his fourth win of the season in RUSH Late Model action at Skyline Raceway on Saturday night. After his first career RUSH Late Model win the last time out, Dane Keller, was second. Alan Chapman was third over Pat Parker and Harry Halliday, who made his season debut.

The lone RUSH Pro Mod event took place at Stateline Speedway on Saturday evening. Divisional hot shoe Dennis Linger, Jr. started in the 12th position so a new face in victory lane was quite possible. Pole sitter Al Brewer set the pace while Lunger methodically worked his way through the field; he cracked the top five on lap four, took the third spot on lap 12 and was second at the completion of lap 13. A lap 18 caution gave Lunger the break that he needed. When the action resumed, Brewer and Lunger battled side-by-side on the final circuit with Lunger using the inside groove of turn four to grab the lead and the win. For Lunger it was his seventh consecutive win of season at the track as he inches closer to another RUSH Pro Mod Weekly Series title. Brewer held on for the second position followed by Adam Ashcroft, Chad Carlson and Brian Mohawk.

John Eckenrod score his third RUSH Stock Car win of the season at Dog Hollow Speedway and Mikael Beaver scored the victory at Stateline Speedway for the second straight week.

Winners in RUSH Karting action at Stateline Speedway were Emmie Bush (Rookie), Emily Heisler (JR-1), Trenton Curry (JR-2), and Mike Boardman (Adult).

RUSH Late Model competitors had the week off at Raceway 7, Dog Hollow Speedway, Potomac Speedway, Delaware International Raceway, and Genesee Speedway.

Mother Nature scored the win in weekly RUSH action at The Hill Speedway, Tyler County, Bradford Speedway, and Eriez Speedway. In addition, the RUSH Sprint Car event scheduled at Knox Raceway was rained out and rescheduled for this Sunday night.

USAC Race Car Driver Taylor Ferns Signs With 8 Track Ent. For Management

Muscle Shoals, AL (July 27, ’22)….Record-setting racecar driver, Taylor Ferns, has signed with 8 Track Entertainment for exclusive management representation, it was announced today by 8 Track’s co-founding partners Jeff Goodwin, V.P. Marketing/Partnerships and Bill Harbin, V.P. Corporate Partnerships. 8 Track’s Sports Management division will be actively pursuing opportunities for Ferns to help increase brand awareness for a variety of companies.

“Taylor’s career trajectory has been impressive. I am sure she will be just as successful with her corporate partners as she has been on the race track,” said Goodwin, a seasoned marketing executive who has developed partnerships for some of the world’s most influential companies. “We are looking forward to working with Taylor. She is a very talented race car driver and her marketability and intelligence is a corporate partner's dream,” added Harbin, whose background also includes creating and developing corporate partnerships for numerous Fortune 500 companies.

"I am really excited to work with the 8 Track Entertainment group and embark on this journey with them. I believe they will be able to help elevate my motorsports career in a multitude of ways which will enable me to obtain my goals of winning races and championships in a greater capacity than ever before," remarked Ferns. "I know what I am capable of doing in a racecar, which includes winning, and I feel confident this partnership will present me with the right opportunities to achieve that objective."

Early in 2022 at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park, and again last week at Winchester Speedway, Taylor became the first and only female to podium in a USAC Silver Crown race surpassing her own record of being the “Highest Finishing Female” in USAC Silver Crown history. Additional career achievements include being the second female driver to win a USAC Championship, the youngest female to win a Sprint Car race (14 years and 4 months old), 2010 USAC/Lyn St. James Kara Hendrick Spirit Award Winner for Outstanding Achievements, and most USAC wins in a single-season by a female.

Sponsored by The Sam Bernstein Law Firm, Ferns’ racing career spans 20 years. The 26-year old graduated cum laude from Grand Valley State University in 2018 with a BBA in Finance and Economics, Wayne State University in 2020 with a MBA in Finance and Management, and is a second-year law student at Wayne State University Law School in Detroit, Michigan.

Ferns owns the best results ever by a woman in USAC Silver Crown history and has pioneered the way for females within the division. Other firsts include, but are not limited to, being the first female to win a Sprint Car race at Berlin Raceway, the first female to win a Sprint Car race at Galesburg Speedway, and the first female to win a 410 Wing Sprint Car race on dirt at Southern Ohio Speedway. Ferns is also an ambassador for Women in Motorsports North America (WIMNA).

Kyle Reinhardt Battled Uphill All Weekend at Lake Ozark
 

Upcoming Three Race Weekend Will Take Team to I-70 and Knoxville

Eldon, MO – July 28, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Coming off two top ten runs on a mini-swing through New York state with the All Star Circuit of Champions in early July, Kyle Reinhardt probably would have preferred to keep the momentum going. Instead, the series schedule called for a nearly two week break.

The season had been taxing on the team’s motor program, so a little extra time to freshen them up and regroup was the positive side of that situation. Now it was time to load up the Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91 and hit the road to Missouri to get back to the track.

July 22: Beach Brawl Night 1 / Lake Ozark Speedway / Eldon, MO

[34 cars, Qualifying 6th Group D, Heat 6th (6), B-main 2nd (5), A-main 13th (22)]

The tour brought Reinhardt and 33 other drivers to Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, MO for a 2-race stint dubbed the Beach Brawl.

When qualifying was complete Friday night, Reinhardt found himself in a hole he would need to climb out of. He logged the 6th quickest lap in his group, then treaded water in his 8-lap heat race, finishing where he started, 6th.

The Capitol Renegade crew and Reinhardt, a mechanical engineer turned full time sprint car driver, put their heads together and made some changes in an attempt to rally their night. From his 5th starting spot in the 12-lap B-main, Kyle charged toward the front. He moved into a top four transfer spot by lap two, but he didn’t stop there. At the checkers Reinhardt was the runner-up.

It appeared the team had found a little something and had things going the right direction. Reinhardt went on to validate that belief, advancing from his 22nd starting spot to a 13th place finish in the 25-lap A-main.

“We didn’t time well tonight. We’ve been struggling with that lately. It’s really important in this format, and we are working hard to get better in that area. I’m proud of my guys because we didn’t give up. We kept digging and we got better. We were able to turn a bad night into a decent one.“, Reinhardt commented.

July 23: Beach Brawl Night 2 / Lake Ozark Speedway / Eldon, MO

[34 cars, Qualifying 4th Group C, Heat 8th (3), B-main 5th (11), A-main 22nd (25)]

Saturday night’s finale of the 2-day show started off much better for Reinhardt. With 34 cars on hand again, he registered the 4th quickest time in his group, putting him in much better position in his heat race and for the night overall.

Reinhardt started inside row two in his heat race, but the potential quickly turned into disbelief when a fuel line burst while running 4th on lap two of heat race number three. The part failure left Kyle and the Capitol Renegade team with a steep uphill battle for the rest of the night.

Reinhardt officially finished 8th in the heat race, burying him deep in the starting lineup for the 12-lap B-main. Only the top four finishers would advance to tag the tail of the A-main starting lineup. The Neptune City, NJ native made an inspired drive, charging toward the front but ultimately falling one spot short of the main with a 5th place finish.

Leveraging a provisional starting spot for only the second time this season, Reinhardt was prepared to make another charge through the field. He had done it the night before and again in the B-main on this night.

Taking the green from the 25th position, forward progress was a little tougher than Friday night, but Reinhardt was making some ground. Then came yet another setback. After moving forward seven spots, his left rear tire exploded and brought an end to his night. He was listed 22nd in the official finish.

“What a night to forget.“, a frustrated Reinhardt said.

“We timed a little better than we have been, so I felt like we put ourselves in a decent position to start the night. Then we had a part failure; the fuel line burst. We battled back from that, then had a tire fail. It’s frustrating, but those aren’t things we can control. We’ve certainly had our share of it this season. All we can do is keep working hard and hope we can shake this monkey off our back.“

The 2022 season has been especially rough for the Capitol Renegade team, with few things falling their way. Often speed has been plentiful, but luck has been scarce.

In sprint car racing, just like any other competitive sport, when you get knocked down the most important thing is to get back up again. Reinhardt and team will do just that.

Up Next

Kyle and the Capitol Renegade team will be in Missouri again this week with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions for the 2-day Rayce Rudeen Foundation event at I-70 Speedway in Odessa, MO on 7/28 & 7/29, where Friday night’s finale will pay $26,000 to the victor.

Saturday night Reinhardt and the All Stars will roll into the Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa for the tour’s lone 2022 stop at the famous half-mile where they will compete for an $8,000 winner’s share. It will also serve as an opportunity to add to the team’s notebook before the upcoming Knoxville Nationals in August.

Tim Kaeding and Bates-Hamilton Racing snag 4th place finish at Stockton Dirt Track

By Gary Thomas

Stockton, CA…Bates-Hamilton Racing and Tim Kaeding continued their consistent summer of racing this past Saturday by tallying a fourth-place finish with the NARC 410 Sprint Cars at the Stockton Dirt Track.

The evening of racing honored Galt, CA legend LeRoy Van Conett and marked the second NARC Fujitsu 410 Sprint Car Series event of the season at the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds venue.

The San Jose driver began the evening by qualifying sixth overall, before charging to a victory in his heat race. Following a fifth-place finish in the Sunnyvalley Bacon Dash it put the Teichert Construction/ VinylTech PVC Pipe/ Clow Valve/ BenefitRFP No. 42X inside row three of the feature.

The Fujitsu General USA main event saw Kaeding battle around the top-five for much of the contest and cross under the Ed Entz checkered flag in fourth at the conclusion. It was the second consecutive fourth-place effort with the NARC Series for TK and persisted a solid stretch since the early part of the June for the BHR team.

“The Stockton Dirt Track can always be a challenge, because you never know what you are going to have surface wise,” Kaeding commented. “We’ve had a lot of success at Stockton over the years though and will take a fourth place run into the next race. I want to thank everyone that supports this team once again.”

Kaeding and Bates-Hamilton Racing will now get set for a night of competition with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards at Petaluma Speedway this Saturday. Kaeding and the BHR team picked up a NARC win at the famed 3/8 mile adobe oval last season. Co-owner Josh Bates is also a multi-time car owner champion at the Petaluma facility.

Bates-Hamilton Racing would like to thank Teichert Construction, VinylTech PVC Pipe, Clow Valve, BenefitRFP, Dan Ewart Sales, B Scadden Design, Advanced Drainage Systems, Custom Pipe and Fabrication, Tigre, North Bay Waterworks, SIP, Star Pipe Products, Kaeding Performance, Kistler Engines, Maxim Chassis, Bell Helmets, K1 Race Gear, Warehouse Paint, Arbo Tech, Performance Powder Coating, Sellers Race Wings, Rod Tiner Racing, ART Enterprises, Tiner-Hirst Enterprise and Vanlare Steering Repair for their support this season.

Summer Nationals Set For This Friday at Outlaw Speedway

(Dundee, NY) The Patriot Sprint Tour will sanction the Outlaw Summer Nationals in Dundee, NY, for the sixth consecutive season.

The event will pay an impressive $3,565 to win and $300 to start, and it will once again be a full point event going towards the 2022 Patriot Sprint Tour Championship that pays $5,000 to win.

Right now, Davie Franek is the current point leader over rookie contender Dalton Rombough, Jonathan Preston, Jordan Thomas, and Dave Axton.

Fortunately for Franek, this is the one track that the New Jersey driver has his lone win in 2022, where he picked up the opening night win over Paulie Colagiovanni and Dylan Westbrook back in Mid- May.

On the other hand, this is the same track where Dalton Rombough made his PST debut, where he had a strong showing and came home with a season-best fourth-place finish.

One driver trying to get back on track is 2021 series champion Jordan Thomas who has yet to find the podium in 2022 and just returned from a scary incident that occurred back in June at the Fonda Speedway.

The standard PST Format is set for Friday night with an open draw for heats, Bonnell’s Rod Shop Dash for Cash, and a 25-lap A-Main.

For more information on the 2022 season, please visit www.patriotsprinttour.com and connect with us on social media through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Halligan Highlights Summer Outlaw Swing with 6th Place Run at The Speed Palace
 

Focus Shifts to Living Legends Dream Race

Mechanicsburg, PA – July 27, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit: Rubright Racing Images

The World of Outlaws annual summertime swing through Pennsylvania provided Jeff Halligan and Risser Motorsports with three opportunities to measure themselves against the best in the business.

Halligan seemed to be peaking at the perfect time leading up to the summer test. His most recent pair of outings included a nearly perfect night at Williams Grove and a victory at Port Royal Speedway.

July 20: Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

[33 cars, Qualifying 9th, Heat 2nd (3), Dash 6th (5) A-main 6th (6)]

The first of the three summertime tests for Halligan took place where he has been most comfortable and successful in 2022, Port Royal Speedway. The Ephrata, PA wheelman has two wins, four total podium finishes, and sits third in the championship points there aboard the Risser Motorsports / TheTreeCenter.com / Victory Auto of Lewistown / EMM Sales & Service / Jake’s Golf Carts / Pine Hill Trailers / Keystone Ag Spraying, No.45.

The midweek contest between the PA Posse and the Outlaws drew 33 teams to take a shot at the $20,000 top prize. Despite a fairly late slot in the qualifying order (23rd), Halligan tripped the timing light as the 9th quickest in the field and put his team in position for a good night.

Four 8-lap heat races were scheduled, with the top 5 finishers advancing to the main event. Only the top two finishers from each qualifier would earn a spot in the dash and the opportunity to improve their starting spot inside the first four rows on that main event.

Having earned the third starting spot in the first heat race, Halligan did not want to waste the opportunity. He immediately went to work, using the low side off turn two to take 2nd away from outside front row starter Lance Dewease. Jeff never relinquished the runner-up spot, driving his way directly into the dash and feature in one shot.

In the dash, Halligan didn’t have the same opening lap success that he did in the heat race. A poor start dropped him from his 5th starting spot to 8th, but he soon got back to work and was able to climb back to 6th by the checkered flag, giving himself the outside row three starting spot for the lucrative A-main.

In the 30-lap A-main, Jeff was in an intense battle for a top five spot from the drop of the green. During the first third of the event, he slipped in and out of the top five.

As the race reached the middle phase, Halligan raced his way into the 4th position and began eyeing a podium spot. Entering the final ten laps, Anthony Macri closed on Halligan and grabbed the 4th spot away.

A few laps later, Brent Marks battled his way past the No.45 to claim 5th. Halligan went on to finish 6th to record his first career top ten with the World of Outlaws.

July 22: Summer Nationals Night 1 / Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

[36 cars, Qualifying 25th, Heat 6th (6), B-main 3rd (3), A-main 25th (23)]

Halligan and the Risser Motorsports team rolled into Williams Grove Friday for night one of the Summer Nationals with momentum. They were coming off a top ten against the Outlaws at Port Royal, plus a heat win, a dash win and a top ten finish in their last trip to ‘The Grove’.

Qualifying carries critical importance in the World of Outlaws format and Halligan’s night didn’t get off to an ideal start. He timed 25th quick in the field of 36 cars, putting him 7th on the grid for the first heat race of the night.

The top five finishers from each 8-lap heat race transferred directly to the A-main, but Halligan wasn’t able to climb that far. He grabbed 6th on the opening lap but could not quite reach a transfer spot and was relegated to the B-main.

Halligan started 3rd in the 12-lap last chance qualifier, often referred to as the B-main. The race is a bit like going for it on 4th down in football. There is a hint of desperation and urgency.

Jeff needed to hang on to a top four finish to transfer to the 30-lap main event and he did just that. After briefly taking over 2nd about mid-race, Halligan flashed under the checkered flag in 3rd.

The A-main didn’t unfold with the comeback of the night story the team was hoping for. After starting 23rd, Halligan was not moving forward in the early going and made the smart decision to call it a night eight laps into the event to save his equipment. He was credited with a 25th place finish.

July 23: Summer Nationals Night 2 / Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

[35 cars, Qualifying 29th, Heat 7th (8), B-main 11th (7)]

Saturday’s finale of the Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway fell into the category of ‘same story, different day’ for Halligan.

A qualifying effort below expectations led to another battle from the back half of their heat race and a trip to the B-main. This time he wasn’t able to convert on ‘4th down’ and find his way to the A-main. Instead, an 11th place finish ended his night one step short of the goal.

“We had a good weekend overall. We proved we can run with anyone at Port Royal, and I guess we proved that despite some good runs at Williams Grove, we don’t quite have it all figured out there yet.“, Halligan said with a grin.

“It was a productive weekend for us despite the final results at Williams Grove. Seems like we’ve been either really good or really bad there this year, so we need to find some consistency. We were able to compare ourselves to the fastest cars in the country on the same night on the same surface. That helps us learn about our car.“

Up Next

Jeff and the Risser Motorsports team will return to Port Royal Speedway this Saturday night, July 30th, for the 16th Annual Living Legends Dream Race, which boasts a hefty $60,000 total purse.

Each 20-lap segment of the main event offers $6,000 to win and $500 to start, meaning everyone who qualifies will take away a minimum of $1,000 and someone could walk away with $12,000 if they win both segments.

Hagar Runs Second at Batesville and Sixth at I-30 During ASCS National Tour Speedweek Races

Inside Line Promotions – LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (July 27, 2022) – Derek Hagar earned results of second and sixth, respectively, last weekend during the first two rounds of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour’s Sizzlin’ Summer Speedweek.

The action began on Friday at Batesville Motor Speedway in Batesville, Ark., where Hagar timed in third quickest in his group. A heat race win placed him in the fifth starting position in the main event.

“We got by a car on the bottom on a restart,” he said. “Everyone saw it work so they were telling their drivers to go to the bottom. That took my lane away. It got diced up in traffic. I was able to get to second and close on Tim (Crawley) for the lead at the end. He made the right move and made it stick on the last lap. I didn’t want to get out of the rubber and get stuck out in the slick so I made a decision to try not to lose any positions knowing I wouldn’t have had enough time to pass the lapped cars into turn one.”

Hagar’s second-place showing was his 14th top five of the season.

The weekend concluded on Saturday at I-30 Speedway, where Hagar was third quickest in his group before he finished second in a heat race.

“We hot lapped and qualified at the same time to speed up the program,” he said. “I had a good race with Tim in the heat race. He was on the pole and I started second. I made a couple of bids for the lead, but couldn’t get by him. I had to settle for second, which put us starting 11th in the feature. We had to play catchup the rest of the night. The track took rubber so everyone was fighting for the bottom. We got what we could.”

Hagar advanced from 11th to sixth in the A Main.

“It was a good weekend,” he said. “I’d have liked to see better results on Saturday, but on Friday we were in the hunt. We were able to put a little money in the bank and get ready for this weekend. Hopefully we can get win No. 10 this Saturday.”

Hagar plans to return to I-30 Speedway on Saturday in search of his 10th victory of the season.

QUICK RESULTS –

July 22 – Batesville Motor Speedway in Batesville, Ark. – Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 2 (5).

July 23 – I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. – Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (2); Feature: 6 (11).

Williamson Posts Top 10 During ASCS National Tour Speedweek Opener

Inside Line Promotions – LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (July 27, 2022) – Garet Williamson recorded his 27th top-10 result of the season last Friday during the opening round of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour’s Sizzlin’ Summer Speedweek.

Williamson timed in fourth quickest in his group before guiding the Bryant Paver Motorsports No. 24 sprint car to a third-place result in a heat race. He capped the night by advancing from 12th to eighth in the A Main.

“I should have went to the bottom sooner in the heat race,” he said. “That hurt our starting position in the feature and the track took rubber on Lap 1. When people would miss the rubber we’d get underneath them. Otherwise we were riding around for 25 laps.”

Williamson also competed during a Speedweek event on Saturday at I-30 Speedway, where he qualified second quickest in his group. A third-place result in a heat race was followed an engine change prior to the feature. That forced the team to line up on the outside of the eighth row in the A Main. Once again track position was critical and Williamson gained a handful of positions for a 12th-place outing.

“We were running second in the heat race when mechanical problems slowed us,” he said. “I limped it home to hold onto third. We had to start 16th because of the engine change. The track took rubber on the bottom within the first few laps. I got into the top 10, but tried to make the top work too long. I fell back a couple of spots before I got back down to the bottom in the rubber.”

Williamson and the team are shifting gears and will be racing at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, this Saturday in preparation for the upcoming 360 Knoxville Nationals.

“We’re taking a new car, but I think we’ll be fine,” he said. “Hopefully we can continue learning and make more consistent laps and I think we’ll be in a good spot. We’ve been super good there. I think all it’d take for us to be contenders is coming off the first couple of rows.”

QUICK RESULTS –

July 22 – Batesville Motor Speedway in Batesville, Ark. – Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 3 (1); Feature: 8 (12).

July 23 – I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. – Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 12 (16).

SEASON STATS –

40 races, 1 win, 17 top fives, 27 top 10s, 32 top 15s, 33 top 20s

Austin Hartmann tallies Outagamie top-20, eyes Antigo-Plymouth IRA twinbill

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 27, 2022 – With a large Outagamie County Fair crowd filling the grandstands and the lighted carnival rides in the background accentuating the picturesque scene, Austin Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing team made their first journey to Outagamie Speedway in Seymour, Wis. with a 410-cubic-inch powerplant under the hood Friday, July 22, coming away with a top-20 A-main showing with the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series.

Hartmann opened the night by turning in the 12th fastest qualifying lap in the 24-car IRA field with a time of 12.439 seconds around the third-mile banked oval.

After lining up on the pole of the first eight-lap IRA heat race, outside front row starter Jeremy Schultz got the jump as Hartmann settled into second on the fast and tacky racing surface. Hartmann held tight to the cushion and held off Russel Borland over the duration of the race to secure a second-place finish.

The third-year Sprint Car driver started 11th in the 30-lap IRA main event and found the going difficult as he struggled with a power steering issue on a track surface which had slicked off since the completion of the preliminary events.

By lap 7, Hartmann had settled into the 17th spot before the first of three caution/red flags appeared on lap 14 when the car of Jack Routson slowed along the backstretch.

On the restart, a red flag appeared when Jake Blackhurst flipped into the turn three wall. When the race resumed, Hartmann was running 14th before the third and final caution flag was displayed on lap 18 for an infield tire, which had been pushed onto the track.

Hartmann slipped back to 17th on lap 23 and held onto the spot over the final seven laps en route to his seventh top-20 A-main finish of the 2022 IRA season in nine IRA A-main appearances in a race won by Danny Schlafer.

“The car was great and fun to drive in qualifying and the heat race,” Hartmann said. “The feature was not so fun, as I lost all my fluid for power steering, which also runs the wing slider. Running with no power steering for 28 or so laps was not so easy.’

A scheduled IRA event at Wilmot Speedway in Wilmot, Wis. was cancelled on Saturday, July 23 due to severe weather in the area.

After the Outagamie Speedway event, Hartmann moved up to 10th place in the Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Car Series point standings with 12 races remaining in the 2022 IRA season.

This weekend Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing team are set to compete in an IRA doubleheader starting Friday, July 29 at Langlade County Speedway in Antigo, Wis., followed by a return visit to The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 30.

“I’m excited coming into this upcoming weekend, as we feel more and more confident with the car,” Hartmann said. “We have been trying some new things that have been working lately, so I’m eager to see how this weekend goes.”

"410" SPRINT CARS RETURN TO SHARON FOR "SUPER SERIES" SATURDAY WITH $3000 ON THE LINE; STOCKS, RUSH MODS & ECONO MODS ALSO IN ACTION 

July 27, 2022

By Mike Leone

(Hartford, OH)…After a week off and various special events during the month of July, Sharon Speedway will host its first four-division "Super Series" program since June 25 this Saturday night (July 30). Sharon is coming off hosting the sellout Camping World SRX event that saw Chase Elliott win live on CBS last Saturday night. The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars will headline the show and will be joined by the Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds and the Whelen Econo Mods. It’s Kam's Electric, Warehouse Sales, and Hawk Performance Night. Race time is 7 p.m.

The "410" Sprint Cars will race for $3,000 to-win in Saturday's non-sanctioned show, which is the 700th "410" event in the history of Sharon Speedway! Only four "410" events have been completed in 2022. Cap Henry won the opener over the 41-car field of All Star Sprints on April 30. A.J. Flick ended more than a three-year dry-spell by capturing the June 4 Western PA Speedweek event over the 33-car field. Christopher Bell won for the third time in All Star competition at Sharon bagging the Ohio Speedweek show on June 14 over a strong 42-car field. And most recently, Flick added his season's second win on June 25. The Sprints will group qualify to set their heat race lineups. One invader that has made it known he'll be at Sharon on Saturday is two-time All Star champion, Greg Wilson. The Benton Ridge, Ohio driver has been running a true outlaw schedule this year and will look to get in some valuable laps prior to the Sharon Nationals on September 2-3.

"410" Sprint Car Payoff: 1. $3,000 2. $1,300 3. $1,000 4. $750 5. $650 6. $550 7. $500 8. $450 9. $425 10. $400 11-13. $375 14-16. $350 17-20. $300 21-24. $250. Tow/Non-Qualifiers $100.

The Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks will be competing in just their fifth race of 2022 on Saturday night. In their June 18 opener, McGuire returned to prominence as he ran his famed high line around the fence to pass 32-time Sharon winner Steve D'Apolito for the victory. It was the seventh career win for the 2018 champion, who loves to make the trip down from Erie, Pa. to race. On June 25, Bish stole a win away from 70-year-old Larry Kugel with a turn four, last lap pass for the 2019 and 2021 champion. On July 19, Chris Schneider led all the way unchallenged for his 16th career win at the track. And finally on July 16, Bish picked up his second win of the year and second $10,000 "Steel Valley Pro Stock Nationals" victory topping a 52-car field.

The HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will also be battling in their fifth show of 2022. The RUSH Mods have averaged a full field of cars as they have every year since 2016. There have been four different winners in as many races with Tony Tatgenhorst, Justin Shea, Ben Easler, and Garrett Krummert victorious; the wins for Tatgenhorst and Easler were the first Sharon wins of their career, while Shea's ended nearly a five-year winless drought. Easler sits atop both the $3,500 to-win Hovis Weekly Series and $1,000 to-win Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series points over two-time track champion, Kole Holden. Easler's lead is just one-point in the Weekly Series.

Summit Racing Equipment will present the hard charger award on Saturday night to the RUSH Sportsman Modified division. The driver that passes the most cars in the feature will receive a $100 Summit gift card. In the event of a tie, the tiebreaker will be the driver that finishes highest in the feature.

The Whelen Econo Mods round out the four-division show on Saturday night for their fifth race of the year as well. The Econo Mods joined the All Star Sprints at the April 30 opener, and it was Jeremy Double earning his 17th career win. Five weeks later, Will Thomas III won for the sixth time in eight starts over the past two years in the division. On June 25, Garrett Calvert passed Gary Olson to score his first career Sharon win worth $550. And most recently, Jacob Eucker ended nearly a three-year winless drought by capturing the July 16 main event. Will there be a fifth different winner in five races on Saturday night!?

There is no Sharon registration fee. One-way driver radios are mandatory; channel 454.000. AMB/MyLaps transponders are required; rentals available for $25. If you have yet to register for the 2022 season, please bring the registration form with you completed http://sharonspeedway.myracepass.com/downloads/get.aspx?i=713060

Fans can not only experience viewing from the frontstretch and backstretch grandstands, but also from the infield fan zone. The fan zone, which includes a concession and restrooms, debuted in 2020 during the COVID-19 shortened season. Sharon is the only track in the area to have viewing from the unique infield perspective. There will be times throughout the night when fans can cross on the frontstretch back and forth.

The pits will be open throughout the afternoon with passes going on sale at 4 p.m., while general admission opens at 5. "410" Sprint group qualifying will be at 6:30 p.m. Racing will begin at 7 p.m.

Grandstand/fan zone admission for those 14 and over is $15, while senior admission is $10. Patio seating upgrades are just $10 and fan suite seating upgrades are just $20 over the cost of general admission. These can be upgraded on race night at the track office. As always, children under 14 and parking are always FREE. Pit passes are $30. As a reminder, coolers nor outside food or beverages are not permitted.

The same four divisions will return next Saturday night (August 6) for the "Bill Kirila Memorial" with racing at 7 p.m.

Mallett Facing Five Straight ASCS National Tour Races This Week After Solid Start to Speedweek

Inside Line Promotions – LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (July 26, 2022) – Jordon Mallett is participating in the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour’s Sizzlin’ Summer Speedweek, which continues this week with five straight nights of racing in the Midwest.

“We had kicked it around and considered it,” he said. “A lot of it came down to what it’d look like weather-wise. Times are a little tough so you have to race when you can race. We had a decent weekend last weekend when we didn’t kill too many tires so we could run the Speedweek deal. When they postponed the race last Thursday it made it more lucrative because that’s only 30 minutes out of the way just to run the Wednesday show. The schedule worked out well to go from track to track so it’s hard to pass up racing several nights in a row.”

The Speedweek opener last Thursday at Tulsa Speedway in Tulsa, Okla., was postponed to Tuesday. The remaining races are Wednesday at Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kan.; Thursday at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kan.; Friday at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla.; and Saturday at Salina Highbanks Speedway in Salina, Okla.

Mallett kicked off Sizzlin’ Summer Speedweek last Friday at Batesville Motor Speedway in Batesville, Ark., where he earned his first top five of the season with the ASCS National Tour. Mallett timed in third quickest in his group and finished second in a heat race to garner the pole position for the feature following a favorable inversion.

“We were pretty good early on,” he said. “I knew I had a good car, but we were too good too early. I thought momentum around the top was going to be key. I was wrong. I led the first third of the race setting a good pace around the top. The bottom just came in. That’s the worst thing about being the leader is sometimes you are a sitting duck. I didn’t know it was laying rubber around the bottom. By the time I was able to get myself worked down we were in fourth and just rode around in that spot from there.”

Mallett’s fourth-place finish was his ninth top five of the season.

I-30 Speedway hosted the second round of Speedweek on Saturday. Mallett timed in third quickest in his group and placed fourth in a heat race before finishing where he started – 14th – in the feature.

“It was disappointing on Saturday,” he said. “I qualified decent, but didn’t have a good heat race. In the feature we were okay. I felt pretty good, but we were plagued by cautions. It seemed my car would take off after three or four laps and I was running a line that others weren’t. However, it felt like every time I’d get going we had another caution. Sometimes those nights just happen where things don’t work out.”

QUICK RESULTS –

July 22 – Batesville Motor Speedway in Batesville, Ark. – Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (2); Feature: 4 (1).

July 23 – I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. – Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 4 (2); Feature: 14 (14).

SEASON STATS –

15 races, 4 wins, 9 top fives, 12 top 10s, 14 top 15s, 15 top 20s

UP NEXT –

Tuesday at Tulsa Speedway in Tulsa, Okla.; Wednesday at Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kan.; Thursday at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kan.; Friday at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla.; and Saturday at Salina Highbanks Speedway in Salina, Okla., for the Sizzlin’ Summer Speedway with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour

DynoTech Race Engines is an engine building and performance shop, based in Memphis, Tenn., operated by Ricky Stenhouse Sr.

“Ever since I have started working with Ricky (Stenhouse Sr.) he has really helped us step our program up,” Mallett said. “He builds extremely good and reliable engines, which speak for themselves. Ricky has helped me get a good grasp on how to keep up with my engine program and the maintenance program. He’s become a really good friend and mentor. He always has our back.”

Mallett would like to thank Awakening Events, Porter Commercial Refrigeration, Water for Christ, Red River Rack Co., D&K Farms, DHR Suspension, Racing Optics, Triple X Race Co., KSE Racing Products, FK Rod Ends, Brown & Miller Racing Solutions, Sinco, Inc., Autometer, Callies Racing Products, DynoTech Race Engines, Hero Graphics, Hilborn Fuel Injection, ISC Racers Tape, K&N Engineering, Lone Star Super Gas (Sunoco), HRP Wings, Schoenfeld Headers, Simpson Race Products, Smiley’s Racing Products, MetTec Titanium, MotorState Distributing, DMI and Superior Bearing and Supply for their continued support.

 

 

Dover Finishes Sixth at I-80 Speedway and Seventh at Huset’s Speedway

Inside Line Promotions – BRANDON, S.D. (July 26, 2022) – Jack Dover posted a pair of top-10 results last week while piloting two different race cars.

It began on Wednesday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., where Dover drove his No. 53 sprint car to a heat race win to kick off the event.

“We got the jump and into clean air, which is huge there,” he said. “We rode around the top. That put us in the feature redraw and we pulled the No. 2. We got out in clean air once again in the feature. About Lap 13 we either had a shock go bad or a bleeder go bad. The car just started going away and wasn’t very good up top or the bottom. We faded back a few positions.

“There was a late caution and we stuck the bottom good to get back up to third, but the car was really inconsistent and wasn’t handling like I wanted it to and we got passed again. We survived to end up sixth.”

Dover ventured to Huset’s Speedway on Sunday. He guided the Rick and Chris Bowers’ No. 81 sprint car to the seventh quickest qualifying time before placing second in a heat race and seventh in the feature.

“We can’t seem to get a handle on the car,” he said. “I tightened it up from previous weeks because I felt like maybe that was our issue. It seemed like we still weren’t tight enough. I’m struggling with the car rotating nice around the top come feature-time. It enters the corners nice, but from the middle off it’s too free. We just need to find that comfort level and we still haven’t hit on it.”

It marked his seventh top 10 of the season at the track and 12th overall.

Dover ranks fifth in the championship standings – only 13 points behind fourth place and 30 points out of the lead – entering the next event at Huset’s Speedway this Sunday.

QUICK RESULTS –

July 20 – I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. – Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 6 (2).

July 24 – Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, S.D. – Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 2 (2); Feature: 7 (7).

23 races, 1 win, 6 top fives, 12 top 10s, 17 top 15s, 19 top 20s

Amantea Produces Career-Best 410 Non-Wing Sprint Car Result During BOSS Series Debut

Inside Line Promotions - IMPERIAL, Pa. (July 26, 2022) - Joey Amantea scored his first career top-10 result during a 410ci non-wing sprint car event last Friday at Lernerville Speedway.

Amantea timed in seventh quickest in his group before he finished seventh in a heat race during his debut at the high-banked oval in Sarver, Pa. That lined him up on the inside of the 10th row for his first-ever Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series feature.

"We had the car rolling," he said. "I just found my rhythm and kept picking up positions. I was able to drive around people. We were able to run anywhere on the track and make up ground. I think we had top-five speed so I was super pumped how that ended."

Amantea's charge from 19th to 10th was tied for the most cars passed.

He also joined the BOSS Series on Saturday at Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway, where he qualified second quickest. Amantea placed fourth in a heat race to garner the eighth starting position in the A Main.

"We were very fast all night," he said. "The way the track was it was narrow and hard to pass, but I was happy with our speed. We got up to fifth and then unfortunately blew a tire with two laps to go."

Amantea was credited with a 12th-place result.

"I thought it was an extremely successful weekend," he said. "We were very fast both nights. I felt the most comfortable I've been in the 410 so far and was really happy that we showed speed against professional 410 wingless drivers."

Amantea also highlighted a couple of starts during Hyper Racing 600 Speedweek with a heat race win and a fifth-place finish in the feature a week ago Tuesday at Spirit Auto Center Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J.

He plans on returning to micro sprint action this Wednesday at Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa., and Friday at Spirit Auto Center Speedway.

QUICK RESULTS -

July 22 - Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa. - Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 7 (7); Feature: 10 (19).

July 23 - Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway in Imperial, Pa. - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 4 (3); Feature: 12 (8).

Wilson Heading to Lernerville and Sharon Following Frustrating Weekend

Inside Line Promotions – FREMONT, Ohio (July 26, 2022) – Greg Wilson characterized last weekend as ‘mediocre’ for the Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics backed Seeling Motorsports team.

Wilson placed 13th on Friday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, before enduring a DNF on Saturday at Fremont Speedway during a weekend with the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group.

The action began on Friday with Wilson timing in 24th quickest overall and seventh in his group. He then rallied from seventh to fourth place in a heat race to lock into the 15th starting position in the A Main.

“At Attica we just kind of struggled with the race track,” he said. “It was really dusty and dirty. We were just mediocre. We’ve been going to the weekly shows and trying some stuff to help ourselves a little bit. We just couldn’t make a lot of progress.”

The team took a 13th-place result and moved on to Fremont Speedway on Saturday. Wilson qualified fifth quickest overall and second in his group. A fourth-place finish in a heat race started him 12th in the feature.

“The track was not like a typical Fremont,” he said. “We timed in pretty well overall, which we were happy with that. I felt like we were pretty decent, but there wasn’t a lot of passing in the heat races. We made it out of our heat. For the way the track was we were pretty good in the feature. We passed a few cars right away to get to eighth and then on an early restart we were in a wreck.

“It was one of those weekends that it was what it was. I’m glad we didn’t get torn up worse than we did. We threw some of that out the window because we probably won’t see Fremont like that ever again.”

Wilson plans to compete this Friday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., and Saturday at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio.

“There’s a big show at Lernerville coming up so we want to get better there and we haven’t been great at Sharon so we need more laps there,” he said. “Hopefully we can put together two strong nights this weekend.”

QUICK RESULTS –

July 22 – Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio – Qualifying: 24; Heat race: 4 (7); Feature: 13 (15).

July 23 – Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio – Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 4 (3); Feature: 22 (12).

SEASON STATS –

BERLIN UP NEXT; MCCUNE LOST FOR SEASON

July 26, 2022 – Holly, Michigan – The Must See Racing Sprint Series Presented by Engine Pro is in the midst of its busiest stretch of the season. This weekend the series will be back in action when it invades Berlin Raceway in Marne, Michigan. This will be the second of three consecutive weeks of racing. It will also be the first and only visit to Berlin Raceway in 2022.

The battle for the championship is shaping up to be one of the closest in series history. Only five points separate current point leader Charlie Schultz and second place Joe Liguori. Bobby Santos III is coming off the most recent series victory at Birch Run Speedway last Friday night. Santos III has been unbeatable in MSR competition in 2022 with three wins in three starts, buts sits ninth in points due to not competing in the entire schedule.

The series suffered a heartbreaking blow after 5-time series champion Jimmy McCune was lost for the season after suffering severe burns to his feet while competing in a winged dirt sprint car race Saturday night. McCune announced he was done for the season as he will begin a lengthy healing process. McCune has become the face of the series over the past decade and leads nearly every series statistical category.
The series will be competing at Berlin Raceway for the first time since 2019. A complete racing program is on tap complete with single car qualifying, heat races, and a 30-lap feature event.

The Steadfast For Veterans Challenge was introduced in 2022. The program offers a $500 bonus to the fast qualifier if he elects to start from the rear. If he wins the race, he will collect another $500. Currently no driver has accepted this challenge to date. With quality competitors like Liguori, Schultz, Ryan Litt, Jason Blonde, Kevin Feeney, Jason Dolinar and others it’s possible the challenge could be accepted this week at the fast 7/16 mile raceway. This would certainly add drama to an already anticipated great racing program on tap.

Showdown on the adobe next up for SCCT at Petaluma Speedway Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Petaluma, CA…The Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards will cap off the month of July with a trip to the cool confines of Petaluma Speedway this Saturday July 30th.

The tacky and hooked-up 3/8 mile clay oval is always a welcomed stop for race fans around Northern California. Petaluma Speedway routinely produces thrilling wheel-to-wheel racing, as lapped traffic can create some of the most hectic competition of any venue on tour. Please note the facility features an earlier start time, with the Pit Meeting at 4pm and cars on track directly after.

The evening of family fun marks the second of three season appearances at Sonoma County’s longest running entertainment venue. Following this Saturday’s outing the Sprint Car Challenge Tour will return on Saturday September 24th for the annual “Adobe Cup.”

This Saturday is another key opportunity for drivers and teams to solidify a spot among the top-32 of points, to be eligible for the Wednesday September 7th Pacific Sprint Cup Invitational. Including this weekend there are just two events remaining until the Sprint Car Challenge Tour jump starts the Gold Cup Race of Champions at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico.

“We look forward to visiting Petaluma Speedway on Saturday with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour,” commented SCCT President Scott Russell. “The track always provides good, competitive racing, and an efficient program. This is essentially our road to Gold Cup now as well with only two races left to lock up a spot among the top-32 of points. After Petaluma it’s then off to Ocean Speedway on August 20th, before we launch the Gold Cup at Silver Dollar Speedway on September 7th.”

Auburn’s Andy Forsberg brings the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards point lead into the sticky gumbo on Saturday. The 46-year-old veteran, who is always a favorite at Petaluma, leads Modesto’s Tony Gomes by 53-points at the top of the standings. Forsberg will be gunning for his first tour triumph of the season this weekend aboard the Pacific Highway Rentals No. 92 mount.

During the initial SCCT appearance at Petaluma Speedway last month it was Gomes who snagged his first career tour victory behind the wheel of the Menne Motorsports No. 75 machine. The 22-year-old looks to ride a wave of momentum following his big $5,000 win last weekend at the Forni Classic in Placerville.

Foresthill’s Ryan Robinson, Rio Linda’s Isaiah Vasquez and Fremont’s Shane Golobic round out the top-five in points heading into round 11 on the season. Completing the remainder of the top-10 are Oakley’s Dylan Bloomfield, Lemoore’s Gauge Garcia, Aromas’ Justin Sanders, Placerville’s Shane Hopkins and Roseville’s Jodie Robinson.

All cars that have competed at each SCCT event are eligible for the $500 Shop Kyle Larson Bonus if they win at Petaluma on Saturday. If they can do so, it will make for a $3,000 total payday. Standard nightly payouts with the tour continue to be $2,500-to-win and $400-to-start the 24-car main event.

Adult tickets this Saturday July 30th at the Petaluma Speedway cost $25 with seniors 65 + being $20, juniors age 6-11 are $10, while kids five and under are free. Tickets will be available at the gate on race day.

The pit gate will open at noon, with the front grandstand gate opening at 4pm. The pit meeting will be held at 4pm with cars on track shortly after. Hot laps, Bianchi Farms qualifying and racing will follow.

The Petaluma Speedway is located in the southern part of the wine country at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds just off Highway 101 in Petaluma, California. More info on the track can be found at http://www.petaluma-speedway.com

The Sprint Car Challenge Tour would like to thank Elk Grove Ford, Abreu Vineyards, Hoosier Racing Tires, Flo Racing, Shop Kyle Larson, Pit Stop USA, Tiner-Hirst Enterprise, BR Motorsports, King Racing Products, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Bianchi Farms, D&D Roofing, Garth Moore Insurance and Financial Services, Quick Time Energy and Mortgage and High Sierra Industries for their support this season.

Brock Zearfoss hard charges through Central Pennsylvania; New York bound
ByTyler Altmeyer
Jul 25, 2022

2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Tenth | 5170 points [636 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (July 25, 2022) – The “Jonestown Jet” Brock Zearfoss put together a passing clinic during his return to Pennsylvania Posse Country, earning Hard Charger honors on two separate appearances which resulted in a pair of top-ten finishes. Although starting deep in the field is not the goal for any competitor, to rebound twice in three starts says a lot about Brock Zearfoss and his team.

Zearfoss, driver of the Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., Klick Lewis Cars, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, No. 3Z sprint car, kicked-off his hard charging ways with a rally from 17th to finish tenth at the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” on Wednesday, July 20. The nearby Jonestown, Pennsylvania, native battled his way to ninth, but Devon Borden snuck by Zearfoss with just one lap remaining.

A few nights later in Williams Grove Speedway’s annual Summer Nationals finale, Zearfoss did it again, once again rallying from the back to finish tenth on the scorecard. This time Zearfoss rallied from 22nd to do so, simultaneously bumping his World of Outlaws top-ten stat sheet to 12 on the season.

“It was a great way to recover at Williams Grove, especially after missing the show on Friday night…and it was a great recovery at Port Royal, as well…just an all-out great effort by the team,” Zearfoss said, a recent World of Outlaws winner at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin. “It feels great to be home. Having the chance to work out of our own shop and sleep in our own beds helps a ton, as well. A great way to kinda reset ourselves before heading to New York and back west.”

ON DECK:
Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing will continue their sophomore campaign with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series with a Weedsport Speedway doubleheader on Saturday and Sunday, July 30-31; the first and only visit to the Empire State this season for the World of Outlaws.

Dietrich caps stellar weekend with Kevin Gobrecht Classic victory at BAPS Motor Speedway; Tenth win of 2022
Jul 25, 2022

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (July 25, 2022) – Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing put together a stellar week in Central Pennsylvania, not only attaining their tenth victory of the season in a start at BAPS Motor Speedway on Sunday, July 24, but they also accomplished a pair of podium scores against the Greatest Show On Dirt, one of which in Williams Grove Speedway’s annual Summer Nationals finale on Saturday, July 23.

Dietrich, who started fourth on the $20,000-to-win Summer Nationals grid, was on a torrid pace in the final few circuits and nearly passed eventual winner, Brad Sweet, for the lead. Utilizing the bottom groove, Dietrich rocketed off the second corner to get by Sheldon Haudenschild for second with just a lap and a half remaining, next setting aim on Sweet. Unfortunately, a lapped car, also using the bottom groove, would negate Dietrich’s final lap momentum which forced the Gettysburg native to take a backseat to Sweet.

“Double-D” was second at Port Royal Speedway, as well, getting by Donny Schatz to secure the position with still 26 laps on the counter. Kyle Larson, who drove on to win at the “Speed Palace,” was too quick to gain on.

“I’m thrilled with a second, especially two on the week against these guys,” Dietrich said after Williams Grove. “I was just waiting for the track to come to me and not use up my tires. We hit about five to go and I decided to trunk the wing, let it eat, and get going, but I just ran out of time. It’s hard to say it would’ve played out, but Brad was really good. When this place gets super slick like that it gets really fun.”

As noted, Dietrich attained his tenth victory of the 2022 season on Sunday night at BAPS Motor Speedway, leading every lap of the program before crossing the line nearly nine seconds ahead of the competition; it was Dietrich’s first win of the year at BAPS Motor Speedway.

ON DECK:
Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with routine visits to Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway on Friday and Saturday, July 29-30.

Scotty Thiel looks forward to All Star triple at I-70 and Knoxville

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (July 25, 2022) – Although Scotty Thiel and Team 73 did not have the weekend they wanted at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Missouri, ultimately capping the All Star Circuit of Champions doubleheader on July 22-23 with 19th and 16th-place scores, respectively, the “Big Wheel” and his Sheboygan, Wisconsin-based open wheel team are ready to go again, this time setting aim on another All Star Circuit of Champions slate on Thursday through Saturday, July 28-30.

Despite Thiel’s frustrating results, there were several shining moments, as well as setbacks that cost the two-time IRA winner in 2022 any hope for momentum. In fact, Thiel was making progress in Friday’s Lake Ozark 25-lapper, but an early spin cost the Big Wheel all positions gained; he would eventually retire.

On Saturday during heat race action, Thiel was battling for a transfer position when another spin cost him his spot. Despite restarting eighth, Thiel rebounded to transfer. He would go on to start 17th in the “A” before finishing 16th.

“That wasn’t the weekend we wanted, but you’ll have those. We’ll shake it off and go again next weekend,” Thiel said, driver of the Gibbsville Cheese, Walkers Game Ear, Professional Plating Inc, Scott Thiel Builders, Stealth Cam, Muddy Outdoors, Complete Water Inc, KSI Supply, GRP Motorsports, Racers Hall, Triple X Chassis, K1 Race Gear, HRP, King Racing Products, Keizer Wheels, No. 73 sprint car. “Hats off to my guys. We had a lot thrown at us at Lake Ozark but we kept moving forward. I wouldn’t be in this position without them.”

ON DECK: As noted, the “Big Wheel” Scotty Thiel and Team 73 will continue their 2022 campaign with an All Star Circuit of Champions tripleheader, first visiting I-70 Speedway in Odessa, Missouri, on Thursday and Friday, July 28-29. One of the most sought after prizes on the All Star campaign trail, the annual Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race will be the highlight attraction, awarding $26,000 in the two-day finale.

An $8,000-to-win showcase at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, will cap the All Stars’ July schedule on Saturday, July 30.

SPECIAL THANKS: Scotty Thiel and Team 73 would like to thank all of their partners: Gibbsville Cheese, Walkers Game Ear, Professional Plating Inc, Scott Thiel Builders, Stealth Cam, Muddy Outdoors, Complete Water Inc, KSI Supply, GRP Motorsports, Racers Hall, Triple X Chassis, K1 Race Gear, HRP, King Racing Products, Keizer Wheels.

GRIMES, Iowa (July 25, 2022) – Ultimately padding the stat sheet yet again, Grimes, Iowa’s Ryan Giles continued his 2022 campaign with a routine visit to the Sprint Car Capital of the World, concluding his evening on July 23 with another top-ten result, his fourth consecutive, in the form of a seventh-place finish in the 360 sprint car portion of the program.

Giles, ace of the Ryan Giles Racing, Albaugh, LLC., Iowa Barnstormers, Hicklin Powersports, Barron Equipment, Omega Concrete Mixers, No. 9 sprint car, kicked-off Saturday’s program by recording the fifth-fastest time of 32 entries, finishing fifth in his respective heat race shortly thereafter. The former 360 Knoxville Nationals preliminary night winner would go on to finish seventh, as noted.

With the 2022 360 Knoxville Nationals just around the corner, it’s a perfect time to maintain consistency.

“It’s been a great stretch for this team, and our goal is to maintain this level of consistency through the Nationals,” Giles explained, who is aiming for a first-ever 360 Nationals title. “It’s the biggest event of the year and we’re more than ready to give it our best shot. I certainly wouldn’t be in this position without my team and supporters. We have a great system and we’ll do whatever we can to keep it going.”

The winged sprints of the Pirtek Renegades, following the lead of the traditional sprints last month, made their first ever appearance at the Thunder Hill Speedway in Menomonie, Wisconsin on Thursday night. An impressive 15 teams clogged the pits at the ⅛ mile bullring.

The teams split into four heats, with two cars advancing from each heat, and two more qualifiers coming from the b-feature. Heat race wins went to Trevor Reding, Chase Viebrock, Mike Mueller, and Chippewa Falls late model pilot Jesse Glenz showing off his versatility - having competed in late models, modifieds, traditional sprints, and now winged sprints this summer. Viebrock also won the 8-lap dash to earn the pole for the 40-lap main event.

Viebrock and Reding paced the 10-car feature field to green with Viebrock looking for the three-race sweep and taking command early. The race was notable for impressive charges through the field by Cam Schafer - the last qualifier from the b-main, and eighth starting Chris Graf. The duo took advantage of the wide and racy track to finish in the top four, but the race belonged to Viebrock, with Mueller, Schafer, Graf, and Glenz rounding out the top five. Unfortunately, Viebrock’s #50 hotrod failed post-race technical inspection and was disqualified - making Mike Mueller the winner. The win also crowned Mueller King of the Hill with the season sweep at Thunder Hill, having won the traditional contest back in June.

TKS Motorsports and Ian Madsen’s front row start postponed; All Star Circuit of Champions next on agenda

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MITCHELLVILLE, Iowa (July 25, 2022) - Mother Nature did not do TKS Motorsports and Ian Madsen any favors on Saturday night at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, as the Mitchellville, Iowa-based team was scheduled to start on the front row. Unfortunately, wet weather moved in, again, negating all hope for the 410 sprint car A-Main to be completed as scheduled. It has been postponed until the last points night of the season; Madsen will start second.

Despite the wet ending, the team’s preliminary effort was sound, kicking things off with the sixth-fastest time of 30 entries, racing on to finish sixth in their respective heat race. A narrow track as the result of weather before the evening’s heat races left little hope for Madsen to make progress.

“It was a great effort by everyone on Saturday night, and leading into the weekend,” Troy Renfro stated, owner of Ian Madsen’s Albaugh LLC, Iowa Barnstormers, Jersey Freeze, deWit Construction, No. 2KS sprint car. “We put together a brand new car this week and it was all hands on deck Wednesday and Thursday to get it ready. Friday’s practice went well and that allowed us to roll into Saturday with a better feel for this new car. It’s a bummer the rain had to move in again, but we’ll do whatever we can to pick up right where we left off when we join the All Stars on Saturday.”

ON DECK:
TKS Motorsports and Ian Madsen will continue their 2022 campaign by joining the All Star Circuit of Champions at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, July 30.

Bayston caps Central Pennsylvania triple with top-ten in Williams Grove Speedway Summer Nationals finale; New York trip on deck

2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Seventh | 5482 points [324 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

CARLISLE, Pa. (July 25, 2022) - A slow start to their Central Pennsylvania invasion ultimately resulted in success, as CJB Motorsports and Lebanon, Indiana’s Spencer Bayston concluded the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series trio at Port Royal Speedway and Williams Grove Speedway with a top-ten score on Saturday, July 23, officially capping The Grove’s annual Summer Nationals with an eighth-place performance after starting 15th on the A-Main grid.

For Bayson, who remains seventh in the World of Outlaws championship standings, the top-ten result bumped his season tally to 24, 13 of which top-five outcomes including a fourth-place run in Eldora Speedway’s Knight Before the Kings Royal one weekend prior.

Although missing the top-ten at Port Royal Speedway on Wednesday, July 20, and again during Williams Grove Speedway’s Summer Nationals preliminary on Friday, July 22, Spencer Bayston qualified for each of the respective A-Mains, eventually ending his efforts with a 17th-place score on Wednesday and a 14th-place score on Friday. Needless to say, Bayston’s effort on Saturday trumped other recent results.

“To end the weekend with a top-ten is important, but I think we were better than where we finished,” Bayston said. “Hats off to the entire team. It wasn’t the weekend we wanted, especially with all three being ‘home games’ for our CJB Motorsports car. But, we’ll shake it off and move forward. We’ll be right back on track at Weedsport.”

ON DECK:
Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports will continue their 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with a Weedsport Speedway doubleheader on Saturday and Sunday, July 30-31; the first and only visit to the Empire State this season for the World of Outlaws.

2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Sixth | 5616 points [190 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 25, 2022) - Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing certainly know their way around Williams Grove Speedway, and that proved to be the case yet again during the Speedway’s annual Summer Nationals program on July 22-23, capping the two-day invasion with back-to-back top-ten appearances including a fourth-place score in the $20,000-to-win finale.

Schatz, ace of the Advance Auto Parts, Carquest, Ford Motor Company, Ford Performance, Curb Records, Sage Fruit, Digital Ally, Absolute Automation and Security, Hunt Brothers Pizza, Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts, No. 15 sprint car, started from the outside-pole and led the first six laps of the Summer Nationals headliner, losing the top spot to Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild on lap seven. The ten-time World of Outlaws champion maintained his place within the top-five for the remainder of the 30-lap program.

The ninth-quickest time in qualifying time trials, as well as a heat race victory, secured Schatz’ position in the $20,000-to-win A-Main. Without saying, Schatz finished second in the evening’s dash.

One night prior in the Summer Nationals preliminary, Schatz finished seventh, starting the 25-lapper in the exact same position.

Actually, Schatz was in a position to secure a top-ten result at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday, July 20, but a tire malfunction negated all potential; the Fargo, North Dakota, native limped his No. 15 home in 19th after starting second.

ON DECK: Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with a Weedsport Speedway doubleheader on Saturday and Sunday, July 30-31; the first and only visit to the Empire State this season for the World of Outlaws.

Brown almost perfect in Knoxville 360 start; All Star tripleheader including Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race on deck

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (July 25, 2022) - Prepping for the upcoming 360 Knoxville Nationals, Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing entered the 360 sprint car portion of Knoxville’s program on Saturday, July 23, and was almost perfect. In fact, Brown’s only defeat occurred during the evening’s A-Main where the Higginsville, Missouri, native finished second after starting from the outside of row two. A move around Altoona, Iowa’s Terry McCarl at the midpoint of the main event secured his runner-up result. Aaron Reutzel was the evening’s winner.

Brown, pilot of the Casey’s, FVP, Andy's Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Rowdy Energy, Ditzfeld transfer, Champion Brands, MC Power, Weld Wheels, Housby, Maxim Chassis, No. 21 sprint car, kicked-off the 360 sprint car portion with the fastest qualifying time of 32 entries, racing on to win his respective heat race from row three.

In addition, Brown, a three-time Knoxville Raceway winner in 2022 including one against the Greatest Show On Dirt, entered the 410 sprint car portion of Knoxville’s program and was scheduled to start seventh when Mother Nature appeared and ended action. It was actually the second time Mother Nature made an appearance on Saturday afternoon and evening, also causing a delay just before heat race action.

In just as impressive fashion, Brown kicked-off the 410 sprint car program with the fastest time of the night during qualifying time trials, racing on to finish fifth in his respective heat race.

“In all, it was a great night for our Casey’s/FVP No. 21 at Knoxville Raceway. We felt great in both divisions, I just wish Mother Nature would have given us the opportunity to race the 410 feature, as well. Regardless, my guys did a phenomenal job and I’m proud of their efforts,” Brian Brown expressed. “We’re excited to race with the All Stars this weekend. With I-70 Speedway being right down the road from our shop, it gives us the opportunity to race in front of our hometown fans and friends.

“Our friends from Andy’s Frozen Custard, and some of their customers, will be with us this weekend and it will be the first time they see us race in person,” Brown added. “They’ll be handing out some free custard to the fans on Friday, so be sure to make it to I-70.”

ON DECK: Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with an All Star Circuit of Champions tripleheader, first visiting I-70 Speedway in Odessa, Missouri, on Thursday and Friday, July 28-29. One of the most sought after prizes on the All Star campaign trail, the annual Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race will be the highlight attraction, awarding $26,000 in the two-day finale.

An $8,000-to-win showcase at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, will cap the All Stars’ July schedule on Saturday, July 30.

Starks Triumphant During Skagit Speedway’s Summer Nationals

Inside Line Promotions – ALGER, Wash. (July 25, 2022) – Trey Starks captured one of the biggest events in the Northwest last weekend when he won the Bob’s Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals.

Skagit Speedway hosted the $10,000-to-win doubleheader and Starks was nearly flawless each time he hit the dirt oval.

“Everything went exactly how we thought it would,” he said. “We had plenty of speed without any major issues and it all came together on the final night. It’s nice when it goes how you want it to.”

Starks set quick time during qualifying to open Friday’s program. He then hustled from eighth to win a heat race.

“It started off good,” he said. “We drew a little later for qualifying, but I found a spot on the track that had some speed in it and we ended up going quick time. Then in the heat race we found our way to the lead I think right about halfway. That put us as the high-points driver to start us 16th in the feature.

“We picked our way forward throughout the race. We were right there toward the end, but I used my head to not force the issue because I’d built up a good amount of points. We had a solid car and we did everything we needed to in order to build points for Saturday night.”

Starks advanced from 16th to third during Friday’s feature. That performance, which earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars, locked him into the pole shuffle on Saturday.

“We had some good notes to build on for the final night,” he said. “We were high points after Friday so we didn’t have to race until the pole shuffle. We were the last car in the pole shuffle. By the time they got down to us it was me versus (Justin) Sanders. I chose the outside to start. He got the jump on me, but we snuck around him on the high side off turn two and led the rest of the way to secure our pole starting spot for the feature.

“We got a good start off the bottom. We had a caution around Lap 4 I think. We restarted there and I hit it pretty good. We ran green until three or four laps to go. We were really good in traffic and put a good bit of distance on everybody. We’ve been good in traffic lately so I don’t really like seeing cautions. The track was changing a lot and was getting pretty far around on the top side. I kind of knew running through lapped cars that the bottom was getting a little quicker. I went back to the top on the restart because that’s where I felt comfortable, but looking back I think the bottom was the faster lane. After taking the white flag I got over the cushion in turns one and two and allowed Tanner Holmes to close in. I heard him and might have saw him going into turn three, but I kept it up around the top and we got the win.”

It marked the ninth triumph of the season for Starks.

“Everything has just been operating like it’s supposed to,” he said. “We haven’t had anything go wrong. That’s the combination it takes to win races. We’ll just try to keep this thing rolling.”

Starks plans on returning to Skagit Speedway this Saturday.

QUICK RESULTS –

July 22 – Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. – Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 1 (8); Feature: 3 (16).

July 23 – Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. – Pole shuffle: 1; Feature: 1 (1).

Dominic Scelzi Wins Howard Kaeding Classic Opener Before Rallying for Top 10 at Salute to NARC Champion LeRoy Van Conett Event

Inside Line Promotions – STOCKTON, Calif. (July 25, 2022) – Dominic Scelzi powered to his sixth feature victory of the season a week ago Friday during the opening round of the Howard Kaeding Classic at Ocean Speedway.

The performance highlighted a busy last two weekends that featured its fair share of misfortune.

Scelzi qualified eighth quickest and advanced a position to finish second in a heat race to garner the 11th starting position in the main event.

“We went out fairly late and qualified well enough to get us in the second row of our heat race, but we weren’t quite good enough for quick time or bad enough to be on the front row,” he said. “It was a tricky spot to time in at. We went third to second in the heat race. Missing out on the heat race win made me start behind the dash cars in the feature.”

Scelzi methodically worked his way forward to garner his first win at the track this season.

“We were really good from the word, ‘Go,’” he said. “I was able to run the top and bottom. Around Lap 15 or so Tim Kaeding got under me off turn four and a yellow came out. I moved down in turns three and four and got quite a bit better. I was racing with Bud Kaeding for second. He slid me in turns one and two. Tim drove by both of us on the bottom. Bud hit the wall and a yellow came out. That gave me the spot back, which was huge. I stayed on the bottom the rest of the race. We got the leader with about nine laps to go. It all worked out in my favor.”

The team returned to the track the ensuing night for a King of the West/NARC Fujitsu Series event, which Scelzi kicked off by qualifying seventh quickest. He then finished where he started – third – in a heat race to earn enough points to advance into the dash. Scelzi drew the highest pill – six – to start last in the dash and he gained one position to garner the fifth starting spot into the A Main.

“We went green and there was something in the track that cut my tire and two other guys tires,” he said. “When we came back out we just weren’t able to get through the field. We ran the top and the bottom, but I wasn’t able to move up.”

Scelzi’s 18th-place result in the main event only cost him a dozen points in the championship standings.

Similar misfortunate occurred last Saturday at the Stockton Dirt Track, which hosted the Salute to NARC Champion LeRoy Van Conett. Scelzi set quick time during qualifying, placed fifth in a heat race and finished second in a dash to line up on the outside of the fourth row in the NARC/KWS main event. Unfortunately, a cut tire hampered the team early.

“We were quick time, which was great,” he said. “That’s something we’ve focused a lot on this year. We’ve gone quick time both times this year at Stockton. In the heat race the track was slick on the bottom, but really rough on the top. On the straightaways the outside was just soot. The inside row went way better so I was in fifth by the flagstand and there was nowhere to pass. Then they ran a seventh through 12th dash and the outside got cleaned off enough to make it a better lane so we dropped a spot on the start. However, we got to fifth right away in the feature. I closed on third and fourth when we cut a tire. I had to go to the back and drove back up to sixth. It was a good rebound given the situation.”

Scelzi’s rally from the back of the pack to a sixth-place finish not only salvaged a decent points night, but it added to his lead in the championship standings. He now holds a 34-point advantage with five races remaining.

Tanner Carrick 13th at Forni Classic as He Now Sets Up for Summer Midwest Swing

PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night in search of his first Mark Forni Classic title, Tanner Carrick would not have the run he had hoped for as he picked up a 13th place finish in what was his final start in California before his Summer Midwest swing.

“Saturday night I felt like we had good speed, buy not getting into the redraw really hindered us and with the track being so good around the top it was tough to make up a lot of ground,” Tanner Carrick said. “My guys did a great job, and I am excited to head to the Midwest and see if we can improve on last year’s results.”

Timing in fifth fastest in his qualifying flight, the Lincoln, CA runner lined up on the front row of his heat race alongside Tony Gomes. Needing the win to earn a berth in the nightly redraw, Carrick and Gomes would put on a show up front as they both jockeyed for the top spot.

With Gomes holding the edge, he went on to grab the win as Carrick’s second place finish still transferred him into the 25-lap, $5000-to-win Mark Forni Classic feature event.

Lining up just behind the redraw cars in the feature event, Carrick took the green flag from the 10th starting position. On the extremely slick surface with the heavy car count and warm summer temperatures, much of the field would go to work on the high side of the speedway with a thick cushion built up for them to lean on.

Settling into 10th with much of the field in single file formation in the early goings, restarts on this night turned single file opposed to double-file due to the track being so dominant on one lane.

With passing at a premium, Carrick would attempt to make the bottom groove work opposed to following the rest of the field, but he would slowly lose a couple of positions on track in the closing laps.

As the checkered flag flew on the Mark Forni Classic, Carrick capped the night off with a 13th place finish.

“It was a little disappointing to fall out of the Top-10 late, but I wanted to see if I could make something happen,” Carrick said.

Tanner Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, Interstate Oil, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Emerald, Timberworks Construction, Hanson Truss, Eddie’s Lincoln Auto Body, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 35, Wins: 4, Top 5’s: 16, Top 10’s: 22

ON TAP: Tanner Carrick is now set for his summer Midwest tour. His first race of the trip is TBD at this time.

Faccinto Scores Stockton Top-5 With King of the West-NARC

PETERSEN MEDIA- Having a ton of confidence heading into the King of the West/NARC visit to Stockton Dirt Track on Saturday night with his previous success at the track over the years, Mitchell Faccinto had a strong run on a tricky track as he picked up a fifth-place finish.

“We timed in well, and ran well in the Dash, but the feature got tricky as the track was really narrow and there wasn’t much opportunity to pass,” Mitchell Faccinto said. “Drew and the guys worked hard all night long, and it was a good result for our Tarlton and Son Inc. team.”

Kicking the night off by timing the Tarlton and Son Inc./EZ Haul/Executive Auto Sales No. 21 in third fastest in qualifying time trials, Faccinto would line up in the second row of his heat race.

On the slick Stockton Dirt Track surface, Faccinto continued to showcase speed in the famed black No. 21 entry as he worked his way up to a second-place finish in his heat race.

With points tabulated during qualifying and heat race competition, the Hanford, CA driver was solidly in the Sunnyvalley Bacon Fast Dash where the six lined him up in the third row.

Getting a good start in the six-lap shootout, Faccinto improved his feature event starting position by one row as he raced to a fourth-place finish. Watching the support series closely to see what the track did for the feature, Faccinto and company made a couple of adjustments before shoving out for the 25-lap feature event.

As the race came to life, the racing surface was extremely narrow and passing would prove to be tough during the fast-paced event. With track conditions also leading to single file restarts, Faccinto did what he could to keep the Tarlton Motorsports entry locked inside the Top-Five.

With the 25-lap feature event going fast, Faccinto closed his night out with a fifth-place finish, as the King of the West Series heads into its traditional summer break to allow teams the opportunity to head to the Midwest.

“It was a little bit of a bummer passing was to tough in the feature, because we went forward all night,” Faccinto added. “Good finish as we head into a little bit of a break and hopefully, we can build off it when we pick back up with the KWS/NARC series. As always, a huge thanks to the Tarlton family for their continued support as they give us some great equipment.”

Tarlton Motorsports would like to thank Tarlton and Son Inc., EZ Haul, Executive Auto Sales, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, System 1 Ignition, Vortex Wings, and BG Lubricants for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 28, Wins: 1, Top 5’s: 7, Top 10’s: 16.

ON TAP: Mitchell Faccinto will be idle this weekend and will tentatively be in action at Ocean Speedway on August 5th.

Kaleb Montgomery Sixth at ‘The Forni’ in Fill In Role with Dale Miller Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- While Justin Sanders was away competing in Washington state over the weekend, Dale Miller Motorsports made the decision to have Kaleb Montgomery to make an appearance in the No. 4SA on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway for the coveted Mark Forni Classic.

“Dale’s car was a dream to drive, and I really can’t thank him and Tara enough for the amazing opportunity and having the confidence in me to pilot their car in a huge race,” Kaleb Montgomery said. “We were super-fast all night long, and we were able to keep it up front in the feature where it belongs.”

With 43-cars on hand Saturday night in Placerville, CA for the 17th Mark Forni Classic, officials opted to split qualifying up into two separate flights. Going out early in the second group, Montgomery not only set the standard in his flight, but earned fast time honors overall aboard the Thompson’s Buick-GMC/Thompson’s Jeep-Ram/Dale Miller Septic Inc. backed No. 4SA.

Gridding the field from the second row of his heat race, the Templeton, CA driver simply needed to finish inside the Top-Four to solidify himself in the nightly redraw.

Montgomery’s heat race got off to a challenging start as an opening lap miscue saw him slip back and fall out of a transfer position. Getting his elbows up, the Templeton, CA driver took advantage of a late restart and moved into fourth, where he would finish, and locked the Dale Miller Motorsports entry into the 25-lap, $5000-to-win feature event.

Qualifying for the redraw as the night’s fast time qualifier, Montgomery would pull the seven pill and took the green flag from the impending feature event inside of the fourth row.

On an extremely slick Placerville Speedway surface Montgomery went to work on the curb as he raced inside the Top-10 with much of the field strung out in single-file formation.

As the race continued on, the cushion would continue to be the dominant line however it would become increasingly difficult to run. Extremely smooth on the lip, Montgomery raced into sixth on the 19th lap after falling back to eighth at the race’s halfway point.

A couple late restarts saw Montgomery take a couple of shots for fifth, but he would settle into line and bring the potent Dale Miller Motorsports mount home with a sixth place finish.

“I had a lot of fun with Dale Miller and his team, and if the opportunity presents itself again, I would love to jump back in their car,” Montgomery added. “I am really thankful for the opportunity, and wish Dale and his team the best of luck for the rest of their season.”

The Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Thompson’s Buick-GMC, Thompson’s Jeep-Ram, Dale Miller Septic Inc., North County Plastering, 24 Hour Road Side Service, Anrak Corporation, Smith Titanium, Absolute Auto Glass, Frank’s Body Shop, Champion Brands Racing Oil, Rider Racing Engines, Walker Performance Filtration, Factory Kahne Shocks, Vortex Wings, TJ Forged Wheels, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., King Racing Products, and A.R.T. Speed Equipment for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 9, Wins- 4, Top-5’s-7, Top-10’s-9

ON TAP: Dale Miller and the Miller Motorsports team is TBD on their next event.

 

 

Henry Charges Through Forni Field to Fifth Place Finish

PETERSEN MEDIA: Looking to add his name to the list of repeat winners of the Mark Forni Classic, Kalib Henry would come up short of his goal but still put on a show as he charged his way forward from 18th to a 5th place finish on Saturday night in Placerville, CA.

“We had really good speed all night, but unfortunately a stumble in our engine hindered us on a late restart in our heat race and it forced us into the ‘B’,’ Henry said. “We raced into the ‘A’, and with the help of a few cautions we used restarts to our advantage and charged to a fifth-place finish.”

With a total of 43 cars packed into the Placerville Speedway pit area, Henry got off to a strong start as the defending winner of the Mark Forni Classic as he timed the McColloch’s RV/Davis Truck Painting/Driven Homes Inc. backed No. 17 in third fastest in time trials.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Henry ran in the fourth and final transfer position until a late yellow changed the complexion of his night. Fighting a stumble on starts, Henry would see Kaleb Montgomery power around him and drop him back to fifth and knock him out of the feature.

Finding himself on the pole of one of the twin ‘B’ Mains, Henry still had a great shot to race his way into the feature. Getting the jump, Henry set sail and raced to a commanding win and punched his ticket into the 25-lap feature event where he would be slated to take the green flag from the 18th starting spot.

On the slick surface, Henry had his elbows up as he went to battle on the bullring as he worked his way through heavy traffic in what was a fast moving feature event.

With a couple of restarts sprinkled throughout the 25-lap affair, Henry would make most up a lot of ground on restarts as he quickly worked through the Top-10. Battling with Colby Copeland and Landon Brooks late in the race, Henry took over the fifth spot where he would go on to close out his race.

“We kept tinkering on the engine and got it really good for the feature,” Henry added. “Restarts were good to us, and those yellows helped the engine stay cool. I wanted to get another Forni, but coming through the field like that was fun.”

McColloch Motorsports would like to thank McColloch’s RV Repair, Davis Truck Painting, Driven Homes, Inc., ART Speed Equipment, Hansen Machine, Rockstar Services, and Gary Morgan Graphics for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 7, Wins: 0, Top-5’s: 2, Top-10’s- 5

ON TAP: McColloch Motorsports and Kalib Henry will be back at Placerville Speedway on August 6th.

 

 

Nienhiser Nets 2nd and 7th Place Finishes at Jacksonville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Dealing with dangerously high temperatures in the area that led to cancelled events, Paul Nienhiser was able to get a night of racing in at his home track, Jacksonville Speedway, where he earned a 2nd place finish in 305ci action, before charging from 14th to 7th in the 410ci race.

“It was almost one of those nights you want to forget,” Paul Nienhiser said. “It had been a while since we ran our 410ci car, and we had some apparent issues early in the night. We did all we could in limited time but it hindered us for sure, though we still ran through the field and picked up a Top-10.”

Dealing with engine gremlins in hot laps, Nienhiser and company didn’t have time to troubleshoot their issues before heat race competition and Nienhiser lined the CAM2 Lubricants/Buffalo Wild Wings/Innovative Design backed No. 9x up fifth in the aforementioned heat.

Slipping back to sixth, Nienhiser’s issues were magnified in his heat as he was able to get back into fifth when the checkered flag was displayed to the field. Narrowing down the issues as they thrashed, the PNR team cleaned what they could in the fuel system prior to the feature where Nienhiser took the green flag from 14th.

Getting the race off to a nice start, Nienhiser would make a couple of quick moves before is troubles returned. Despite his engine losing a bit of power on the third stanza, the Chapin, IL driver did what he could to work his way forward in front of the hometown crowd.

Carving through the field on the slick racing surface, Nienhiser was able to race into the Top-10 as he capped the 410ci feature off with a seventh-place finish.

Also competing in the 350ci division on this night with Caleb Wankel’s 305ci engine bolted into a PNR no. 9x, Nienhiser lined up on the pole in his 305ci heat race and proceeded to pick up the win.

While gaining points for the win, Nienhiser didn’t acquire any passing points based on his starting position but still was able to take the green flag from the fourth position.

When the feature came to life, Nienhiser used his veteran savvy to quickly jump into the second position as the race to lead would be tough. Keeping the leader in his sights, Nienhiser was able to pull alongside and battle for the top spot but never had the run he needed to make a move.

Continuing to run second, Nienhiser capped the feature off with a second-place finish.

“In the 305ci race, we had a couple of shots at the leader in traffic, but he was really good in open track,” Nienhiser said. “It was fun to do a little double duty, and can’t wait to try again this weekend.”

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Lubricants, Buffalo Wild Wings, Innovative Design, Mason Sound, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Signature Signs & Design, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, American Rental Center, Fierce Herbicide, Guse’s Pub & Eatery, Wessler Bros Agency, Willhite Mowing, T&K Tree Services, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Midland Performance, Simpson Race Products, Smith Titanium, and Premier Powder Coating for their continued support.

Nienhiser would also like to thank Midland Performance, Kinney Racing Engines, Rockstar Wraps, Heartland Trailer Manufacturing, Robert’s Tire Center, and Stronghurst Collision for their support of the No. 50 car.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-15, Wins-2, Top 5’s-9, Top 10’s-12

ON TAP: Nienhiser will be in action on Wednesday night in Dubuque, IA with the Sprint Invaders before MOWA action on Friday Jacksonville Speedway and on Saturday night at Macon Speedway.

Tony Gomes and C&M Motorsports Score First Mark Forni Classic Triumph

PETERSEN MEDIA- Over the years, that first win at Placerville Speedway has eluded Tony Gomes. That changed on Saturday night, as Gomes wired the field during the track’s crowned jewel event and raced his way to a memorable win, and gave the C&M Motorsports team its first Mark Forni Classic triumph in doing so.

“I have done everything but seal the deal at Placerville Speedway, and to finally do it back in the C&M Motorsports car is really special,” Tony Gomes said. “Cody and Mandi believed in me enough to give me my first opportunity a few years ago, and to team back up and do this with them at the Mark Forni Classic of all races is amazing.”

With 43 cars checked in at the 17th running of the event, Gomes got off to a rock-solid start as he tied the Legacy Specialties Inc./Lund Construction/Anrak backed No. 7c in seventh fastest in his qualifying flight.

Gomes’ qualifying effort put him on the front row of his heat race. Picking up the win was a crucial part in Saturday’s equation as it put Gomes in the redraw where the one pill lined him up on the front row of the feature event alongside Andy Forsberg.

On a very slick racing surface that had built up a monstrous curb on both ends of the speedway, Gomes quickly went to work around the lip as the race came to life. Though a few cautions sprinkled throughout the course of the 25-lap feature slowed Gomes, he was strong on each restart as he continued to leave Forsberg in his wake and give himself breathing room.

Getting into traffic at times during the race, Gomes cut through traffic with extreme precision as continued his torrid pace as he clicked off laps getting closer to that elusive first Placerville Speedway win.

A late restart gave Gomes clear track for a final dash to the finish, and though he got back into traffic with two to go, Gomes never faltered as he beat the field the checkered flag and celebrated his first career win at the speedway.

“Cody and Bobby had our car on rails all night long, and we were so good on the cushion for 25-laps,” Gomes said. “There are a lot of great people who support the No. 7c, so to celebrate with them on Saturday as well was the icing on top of the cake.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Legacy Specialties Inc., Lund Construction, Anrak, Sam Rhodes, Alturas Tires, Swartz Diesel, PT Shocks, Creason Enterprises, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

Weather Claims Another Round at Tri-City Raceway Park

 (Franklin, PA July 24, 2022): While track crews were preparing Tri-City Raceway Park for an evening of red-hot competition, an afternoon storm came over the speedway. That rainfall, coupled with a forecast of more storm activity during the scheduled racing time, forced yet another cancellation at the Venango County oval. Next Sunday, July 31, will, ironically, be Sunday a Thunder event, with racing for the four classes: the Shawgo Real Estate, LLC 410 Sprint Cars, the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, and the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks. Racing will start at 6 p.m. Pit gates will open at 2 p.m., and spectator gates will open at 4 p.m. Coming up on Sunday, August 21, the World of Outlaws Late Model Series will invade Tri-City Raceway Park and the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks will also be in action. Please note that putting the Mini Stocks on the card is a schedule change due to a conflicting date for the RUSH Sprint Cars. Watch the website and social media platforms for any other changes. Further information about Tri-City Raceway Park can be obtained by calling the track office at 724-967-4601, or by e-mailing the office at tricityracewaypark2020@gmail.com. Or, you can check the web at Tri-CityRacewayPark.com, or the Facebook page at Tri City Raceway Park. Tri-City Raceway Park is located just a few miles north of Franklin, PA, at 3430 State Route 417 in Oakland Township.

Doran-Dyson Racing’s Swanson

Dominates the Competition

In Rich Vogler Classic USAC Silver Crown Race

At Winchester Speedway Thursday Night

WINCHESTER, Ind., July 22 — A six-time champion doesn’t like finishing second in a race by 0.050 of a second.

Kody Swanson was determined to do everything in his power to finish one spot better than he did in last year’s Rich Vogler Classic USAC Silver Crown race at Winchester Speedway, and he did just that Thursday night in the 2022 edition of the race. Driving the Doran-Dyson Racing No. 1 sponsored by Henry Repeating Arms, Glenn Farms and Duncan Oil, he dominated the competition by winning the pole, leading all 100 laps of the race, setting the fastest lap of the race, and taking the checkered flag with an unheard of 10.062 seconds margin of victory. Swanson lapped the entire field on the high-banked half-mile asphalt oval except for the very distant runner-up, Logan Seavey.

And just like last year, Swanson took the point lead with his performance here. The defending series champion went into this race third in points, but with the victory he now tops the 58 drivers who have earned points so far this year with 308 points to Seavey’s 305. Doran-Dyson Racing tops the entrant standings with 308 points, while Rice Motorsports and Klatt Enterprises are currently tied for second with 305.

Swanson is the winningest driver in series history, and he extended that record to 35 with his victory in Thursday’s race, which was presented by The Pallet Builder.

The native of Kingsburg, Calif., who now lives in Indianapolis had a great start with the blue No. 1, which is powered by a Lanci-prepped Ford engine. Chris Windom ran in second for the first 63 laps until Seavey passed him on the event’s only restart working lap 64. Neither of them had anything for Swanson’s No. 1 prepped by Kevin Doran and the Lebanon, Ohio-based Doran Racing team, however.

The only caution during the 100-lapper flew from laps 56 through 63 after Taylor Ferns spun in Turn 2 while running fourth. She was able to restart fourth because by that time there were only four drivers on the lead lap. She ended up finishing third. C.J. Leary and Brian Tyler rounded out the top five in the 21-car field.

Swanson’s fastest lap of the race came a little after the restart when he was timed in 15.677 seconds on lap 65.

Swanson also has the most poles in series history, and he extended that mark to 38. Thursday night he won the Fatheadz Eyewear pole with a time of 14.629 seconds, which didn’t quite break the track record he earned here last year, but was still 0.472 seconds faster than the second-fastest qualifier, Windom. Swanson also topped practice with a lap in 15.057.

Unofficially he set a new 100-lap track record of 35:44.816 in the race.

Swanson said having a really good car and his efforts to set a smart pace while still minimizing his tire wear were key.

“Last year I was conservative because I was nervous about what would happen if I ran out of tires at the end. This time I wanted to make sure we ran out front and then to see how it would go, because this car was so good,” he said afterwards.

He was about 0.455 seconds ahead of Windom for the first 15 laps, but he had stretched his advantage to 1.662 seconds by lap 20. His lead dropped to about 0.7 of a second around lap 35, but was back to 1.465 seconds 10 laps later.

At the halfway point Swanson had stretched his lead to 3.403 seconds and he had already lapped up to fifth place. The very next lap he was more than 4 seconds ahead of Windom. He had a 5.494-second lead when the caution flew.

Shortly after that the second-place driver became Seavey, but Swanson had a 2.542-second lead over him on lap 65, and a 5.118-second lead on lap 70. His advantage was 4.472 seconds on lap 75; 4.975 seconds on lap 80; 6.019 seconds on lap 85; 7.823 seconds on lap 90; 9.189 seconds on lap 92, and 10.413 seconds with five laps to go before he won by 10.062 seconds.

“I’m grateful to be a part of this Doran Racing team, and I appreciate the job that everyone on this team does,” Swanson said afterwards. “I left for the race shop on Tuesday morning and I haven’t been home since. We went through everything to try to be as prepared as we could be for this race. Everyone on this team works so hard. We had a job to do and wanted to put this car in victory lane for this team, and I didn’t do any of it alone.

“This place [Winchester Speedway] is so unique anyway; there can be so much tire fallout here, but our car stayed consistent throughout the race and I think our tires didn’t wear out as quickly as some of the other drivers’ tires did. I think that was key,” he said.

“I learned an important lesson here last year,” he added. “This time I was cautiously aggressive early. I kept Windom behind me, but I didn’t wear out my tires to do it. Then, as the race progressed, I could lengthen my lead.”

Swanson said he had a couple of moments with lapped traffic, but “I had a smooth, clean race.

“This was a good night for us,” Swanson concluded. “So far this year hasn’t gone as well as we’d hoped, but now hopefully we can keep this momentum up going forward.”

Swanson mentioned that several years ago Tracy Hines was helpful in developing his technique for high-banked tracks. “Even last fall, I got to sit down with Mack McClellan, Tom Bigelow and Johnny Parsons, and they told stories about this place,” he said. “I took a lot of it to heart, and there was maybe a trick or two I learned from them. I’m thankful for that, and for everybody in my life and the chance to do this.”

Swanson is now a three-time winner of this race. He also won it in 2017 and 2019 when it was held at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park in Brownsburg, Ind.

The event was streamed live on Flo Racing.

The next USAC Silver Crown race is at Toledo (Ohio) Speedway Aug. 6. Doran Racing and Swanson are the defending winners of that event, and Swanson led all 100 laps of it last year too.

Prior to that Doran Racing will field an asphalt sprint car for Swanson in the Gene Nolen Classic 500 Sprint Car Tour event July 30 at Anderson (Ind.) Speedway, and a similar race Aug. 1 at Lucas Oil Raceway Indianapolis Raceway Park.

Donny Schatz Enters 2022 Driven2SaveLives BC39 Event

10-Time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Champion Will Compete in Spike Chassis Entry with Mark Cooper and Sage Fruit

INDIANAPOLIS (July 21, 2022) – 10-Time World of Outlaws (WoO) NOS Energy Sprint Car Series champion Donny Schatz announced today that he will compete in the 2022 Driven2SaveLives BC39 Presented by WeatherTech event driving for Mark Cooper, the owner of Spike Chassis. Partnering with Sage Fruit, Curb Records, Carquest, Absolute Automation and DKW Transport Schatz will be making his first career event appearance in the Aug. 3-4 USAC NOS Energy Midget National Championship event at The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS).

“I’m really looking forward to taking part in the BC39 event for the first time in the seat of Mark Cooper’s car. We’ve had a great time competing in the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals the past few years and I appreciate the opportunity that he and Derrick Schwabauer are giving me to take part in another prestigious event like the BC39. The Spike Chassis stable is always strong and I’m proud to be part of their effort for this event.”

The BC39 event is also an event that Schatz recognizes is very near and dear to many in the sport of open-wheel racing as it pays tribute to the legacy of his former Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing (TSR) teammate, the late Bryan Clauson.

“I had the opportunity to get to know Bryan throughout the years that we raced as part of the TSR organization together. While we ran different racing schedules in different series for most of that time, I was able to spend time with Bryan and that allowed me to learn that we shared a similar mentality to racing. He and some others within TSR convinced me to give the Chili Bowl a shot and we worked out a deal that I would be part of his super team effort for the 2017 event. I was very proud to be part of the effort that Tim Clauson headed up after Bryan’s accident and I credit him (Bryan) with helping me to truly come to enjoy Midget racing. Driving one of these cars is like driving a rocket ship, it’s a lot of fun.”

The Spike Chassis entry of Schatz will see familiar partners come along for the BC39 event as Sage Fruit, Carquest, Curb, Absolute Automation and DKW Transport will hit the dirt at IMS aboard the No. 15 machine.

“Having our friends at Sage Fruit, Carquest, Curb, Absolute Automation and DKW Transport come along for our first attempt at the BC39 is something we’re very appreciative of – we couldn’t ask for better partners. Chuck Sinks (Sage Fruit), Mike Curb & Cary Agajanian (Curb-Agajanian Racing), Junior Word (Carquest), Jason Barati (Absolute Automation) and Shawn Loken (DKW Transport) have been huge supporters of our program at the Chili Bowl Nationals and it’s a privilege to have them as partners for a special event like the BC39.”

The BC39 event begins on Tuesday, Aug. 2 with team parking at 12 p.m. (EDT) followed by the heat race position draft. All cars entered will be placed into a random draft to determine their heat race. Teams will be able to pick their heat race spot either in person with a representative or remotely through USAC officials. Any unrepresented team will be given the first available spot.

On-track action begins Wednesday, Aug. 3 at 2 p.m. (ET) with the driver’s meeting in the IMS Media Room. The gates open to the public at 3 pm with practice beginning at 4 p.m. Opening ceremonies will begin at 7 p.m. followed by heat races and concluding with the Stoops Pursuit feature event.

On Thursday, Aug. 4 gates will open to the public at 3 p.m. followed by practice at 4 p.m. Qualifying races will start at 5 p.m. followed by opening ceremonies slated for 7:30 p.m. with racing to follow. The 39-lap Feature will conclude the event and crown the overall BC39 champion.

Goldesberry Picks Up A Pair of Top-10’s

Springfield, IL (July 21, 2022) – Jordan Goldesberry saw two new racetracks last weekend and was able to pick up a pair of top 10’s. This past weekend saw the IRA head north to River Cities Speedway for the King of the Wings event in Grand Forks, ND and then the team stopped at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, SD on Sunday.

On Friday night, Goldesberry was 16th quick. He would start on the front row of his heat race and the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim was off to a fast start. Goldesberry would go on to win his heat race and qualify for the two dashes. Goldesberry would pull the pole for the first Dash and go on to win it. The dash win would put the Rockstar Energy Drink #65 on the pole for the 30 lap main event. Goldesberry would battle Jade Hastings the first few laps before settling into third. On a lap 10 restart, Goldesberry would get into the wall and sustain damage in the rearend. Goldesberry would go on to finish tenth.

On Saturday night, Goldesberry would go out late for qualifying on a slick surface and qualify 23rd. The Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim would line up sixth in the third heat and Goldesberry would finish fourth. For the feature, Goldesberry would line up his Rockstar Energy Drink machine 16th. After several cautions, Goldesberry would finish tenth for the second straight night.

“Grand Forks was a fun racetrack. We had a really good night going Friday and we got into the wall early in the feature and it ended up knocking the rearend out of square and the car just didn’t handle.” said Goldesberry. “Saturday night we buried ourselves in qualifying and made our night more difficult. A couple tenth place finishes wasn’t horrible.”

On Sunday night, the team made a stop in Brandon, SD for their first ever visit to Husets Speedway. With 23 cars entered, Goldesberry would qualify 14th. Goldesberry would start fifth in his heat race and finish fifth. For the feature, the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim lined up 14th and finished 16th in the 25 lap event.

“We fought a stumble early in the night at Husets and it affected our qualifying time. We did the best we could and didn’t give up.” said Goldesberry. “Husets is a very nice facility and we had a fun time there.”

This weekend Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team will head north for an IRA doubleheader. Friday night the team will be at Outagamie Speedway in Seymour, WI. The action will move to southern Wisconsin on Saturday to Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, WI.

Jake Morgan Continues Placerville Speedway Dominance with Hunt Wingless Series

(PETERSEN MEDIA-Placerville, CA)- Jake Morgan has turned into the one to beat when the Hunt Series rolls into Placerville Speedway. Establishing himself as the track’s all-time winningest non-wing driver back in April, Morgan added to his lore on Saturday night after out dueling Shane Hopkins and Shawn Jones for his second win of the season.

When the 25-lap race came to life it was Hopkins jumping out to the early lead, while Morgan made a couple of swift moves to get into second. While Hopkins and Morgan ran one-two and used the low side of the speedway, behind them Shawn Jones was attacking the cushion and making headway.

As Jones moved into third, it turned into a high-speed chess match as Jones would lead lap seven as he powered around both Hopkins and Morgan, only to have Hopkins return the favor a lap later.

The lead trio continued to swap lanes and positions over the next two circuits, and on the 9th lap, Morgan made the top work and he surged into the lead.

Once out front, Morgan set a torrid pace as he carved through traffic with ease as Hopkins did all he could to keep pace. As traffic slowed the leaders pace, it allowed Hopkins and Jones to close back in on the Fair Oaks, CA driver at times, but Morgan would not be denied as he raced to the win over Hopkins, Jones, Josh Young, and Shawn Arriaga.

A total of 30-cars checked in at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, and it was Hopkins getting the night started by earning Dependable Crane Fast Time.

Nick Robfogel won Benic Ent Heat No.1, Josh Young won Brown and Miller Heat No. 2, Jake Morgan won King Racing Products Heat No. 3, and Dylan Newberry won Santomauro Race Products Heat No. 4.

After winning the ‘B’, Daniel Whitley charged to seventh in the ‘A’ and was the events Santomauro Hard Charger. Jordan Garretson was the Matt Streeter Racing/TW Race Photos Hard Luck Award Recipient, while Hopkins won the Arbo Tech Best Presenting Feature Car award.

By way of his daring three-wide pass for the lead, Jake Morgan took home the Vahlco Wheels Cool Move of the Night, and finishing 15th, Trey Walters earned the BR Motorsports P.15 Award.

Austin Hartmann completes successful IRA North Dakota road trip to River Cities Speedway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 20, 2022 – Austin Hartmann and the members of the Plymouth, Wis.-based 87A Hartmann Racing team made the most of their 640-mile trek to River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D. for a Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association (IRA) versus Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association (NOSA) King of the Wings doubleheader weekend of action by gaining valuable A-main experience in both Winged 410 Sprint Car events on Friday, July 15 and Saturday, July 16.

The weekend IRA-NOSA Sprint Car spectacular opened on Friday, July 15 with a stout field of 35 Winged 410 Sprint Cars checked into the pit area for the event, which also featured an appearance by the Morton Buildings World of Outlaws Late Model Series.

Hartmann came out firing by ripping off the eighth fastest qualifying time with a lap of 10.420 seconds around the quarter-mile clay oval bullring.

As the track transformed quickly from fast and tacky in qualifying to dry and slick in the heat races, Hartmann found the going challenging in the fourth eight-lap heat race as he dropped back to eighth after starting third.

Hartmann then lined up on the pole of the 12-lap B main needing to finish in the top four to advance to the 30-lap main event. The IRA rookie contender settled into second behind outside front row starter Tom Egeland on the opening lap.

As Hartmann stuck to the low line, Shane Roemeling used the high groove to sweep around the Plymouth, Wis. driver to move into second and drop Hartmann to third. Fellow IRA competitor Russel Borland then worked past Hartmann on lap 9. However, Hartmann held strong in the fourth-place position to earn the final A-main transfer spot as the checkered flag fell in the B main.

After starting 24th in the 30-lap IRA-NOSA main event, Hartmann endured three caution flags in the first 20 laps before he spun along the front stretch to bring out another caution flag on lap 22. Hartmann recovered to close out the race strong, while passing fellow IRA racer Jack Routson on lap 29 to secure a 19th-place finish in a race won by Grand Forks, N.D. driver Austin Pierce.

“The first impressions of River Cities Speedway were as to be expected,” Hartmann said. “It’s a pretty cool little high-banked track with no walls. Friday night started off great as the track was heavy and hammer down. I knew I had to capitalize on the good pill draw I had. Once the track slicked off, it was a battle to find speed for the rest of the night.”

With dry and slick track conditions greeting the assembled 33-car IRA-NOSA competitors on Saturday, July 16, Hartmann qualified 26th with a lap of 12.004 seconds.

Hartmann started and finished seventh in the second IRA-NOSA heat race, which left him to start sixth in the 12-lap B main needing to finish fourth or better to advance to the 30-lap main event.

The third-year Sprint Car racer put together an impressive performance in the B main, advancing to fifth on the opening lap and then tracking down the fourth-place car late in the event. Taking advantage of slower traffic ahead of the fourth-place machine, Hartmann pulled off a perfectly-timed slide job on the final lap to steal fourth place and a gain spot in the evening’s main event.

After starting 24th, the 30-lap A main proved to be relatively uneventful for Hartmann as he stayed out of trouble en route to a 23rd-place finish in a race won by defending IRA champion Jake Blackhurst.

“Saturday didn't start off too strong with a track that got slick super quick,” Hartmann said. “We were behind right away starting in the back of a solid heat race with a one-lane track. Starting sixth in the B main, I knew I couldn’t hesitate on making moves and got to fifth immediately.

“As the laps counted down, I didn't think I'd have a chance to make it, even though I was catching the fourth-place car,” he said. “When a lapped car held up the fourth-place car on the last lap, I threw a ‘Hail Mary’ slide job and got the transfer spot. In the feature, I lost my tires and just stayed low avoiding the leading cars.”

Overall, Hartmann was pleased with the team’s performance during its first high-mileage, out-of-state, multi-event road trip of the 2022 season.

“All in all, it was definitely a great time and an awesome track,” Hartmann said. “I can't thank my continued sponsors enough for their support and for them believing in myself, as well as this team. Also, a special ‘thank you’ goes to Eric Bergschultz, who was my crew chief for the weekend. He busted ass and always had a positive mindset even when I didn't. I’m excited to have him aboard.

“Finally, this weekend wouldn't have been possible without Gibbsville Cheese, Ozzie Weisner and Fran O’Brien,” he said. “I am beyond appreciative for their help in lending us an engine to run.”

This weekend Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing team will continue their rookie IRA campaign with a pair of closer-to-home events. The IRA weekend doubleheader opens with a trip to Outagamie Speedway in Seymour, Wis. on Friday, July 22 and concludes with another scheduled IRA event at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis. on Saturday, July 23.

Starks Eyeing Victory During Bob's Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - PUYALLUP, Wash. (July 20, 2022) - Trey Starks returns to action this weekend at Skagit Speedway, which hosts the Bob's Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals.

The $10,000-to-win spectacle is arguably the biggest 360ci winged sprint car event of the season in the Northwest and the dirt oval in Alger, Wash., has been good to Starks this year.

"I feel like this is the race where things have been leading up to," he said. "Dirt Cup is a big race for the year as well as the World of Outlaws weekend, but this is the race we have the most experience for and the most notes on. We've been pretty good in a 360 all year. So the pressure is kind of on. If we keep doing what we've been doing we should be in good shape, but we have to focus and make sure we do everything right. Hopefully we'll have a good outing and we can be there at the end on Saturday."

Starks has earned eight wins in 12 starts this season with four triumphs at Skagit Speedway, including a trio in 360 competition. He also captured a preliminary night victory during the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup - the most recent marquee event at Skagit Speedway.

"The format this weekend is a little different than we've run with the 360," he said. "You have to qualify good to get points and get through your heat race. There's a 16-car invert in the feature on Friday. If all goes well we will be starting toward the back and have to pass cars to build points. We've been fast, but also had to come from the back to pass cars this year so I feel pretty good."

Starks is coming off a triumph during the Skagit Speedway Mid-Season Championship Night, which moved him to sixth in the championship standings despite missing one race. He has captured three of the five 360 sprint car features at Skagit Speedway this season.

Tri-City Raceway Park to Try Again Sunday
(Franklin, PA July 20, 2022): Tri-City Raceway Park will attempt another Sunday Thunder racing program on July 24, with action scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Four divisions of competition will be presented at the Venango County oval owned by Merle Black.
Topping the card will be the Shawgo Real Estate LLC 410 Sprint Cars. Former kingpin Jack Sodeman, Jr. currently leads the championship points but he has yet to reach victory lane in 2022. With two victories at Tri-City and nine overall, A.J. Flick is the fourth-ranked Sprint Car racer in the country. He will be looking to improve his average finishing position so that he can move up in the national rankings.
Plenty of other drivers will be in contention for the win, including defending track champion, Brandon Matus; his father, Brent; Bob Felmlee, Carl Bowser, Brandon Spithaler, and young Chase Metheney.
Jeremiah Shingledecker will try to build upon his substantial lead in the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modified ranks. Kevin Hoffman is coming off a big win, his first of the season, and racers like Jimmy Holden, Tom Holden, Travis Shingledecker, Kevin Green, and Lonny Riggs will be gunning for them.
In the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, Tyler Wyant wants to separate himself from some tough customers like Pat Fielding, Curtis J. Bish, Jason Johns, and many more.
A question on everybody’s mind will be whether the Rascal, Levi Maskal, can rebound from the mechanical problems that resulted in his first loss of the 2022 season at Tri-City. Maskal was undefeated in the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks until a broken steering rack and a misfiring engine took their toll upon his potent Honda the last time out. Tom Urey got the win, his first, and he will be up to the task this Sunday. Two others that are looking for some better luck are Justin Bailey, the 2021 champion, and his rival, Dalton Speer. Both of them were frequent winners in 2021 but they have struggled this season. Recently engaged Bodey McClintock would like nothing more than to greet his fiance in victory lane after a hard fought win.
Remember that the Pit gates will open at 2 p.m., and the spectator gates will open at 4 p.m. As noted, racing will commence at 6 p.m.
Regular event ticket pricing will apply for this race. So, adults (ages 16 to 62) will be admitted for $15, seniors (ages 62 and up) for $13, and students (ages 10 to 16) for $10. Children (under age 10) will be free, as usual at Tri-City Raceway Park. The economical Family Pass will be available for $45, and that will admit two adults of any age and two students. Pit Passes will be $35.
If you cannot make it to the track on July 24, the following week will also be a Sunday Thunder event, with racing for the same four classes: the Shawgo Real Estate, LLC 410 Sprint Cars, the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, and the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks.
Coming up on Sunday, August 21, the World of Outlaws Late Model Series will invade Tri-City Raceway Park and the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks will also be in action. Please note that putting the Mini Stocks on the card is a schedule change due to a conflicting date for the RUSH Sprint Cars.
Watch the website and social media platforms for any other changes.
Further information about Tri-City Raceway Park can be obtained by calling the track office at 724-967-4601, or by e-mailing the office at tricityracewaypark2020@gmail.com. Or, you can check the web at Tri-CityRacewayPark.com, or the Facebook page at Tri City Raceway Park. Tri-City Raceway Park is located just a few miles north of Franklin, PA, at 3430 State Route 417 in Oakland Township.

BRODY ROA HEADS TO INDIANA SPRINT WEEK

(Cypress, CA, July 19, 2022) For the first time since 2019, Southern California sprint car racer Brody Roa is headed to the grueling Indiana Sprint Week. Beginning Friday at the Gas City I69 Speedway, Sprint Week will feature eight races, on eight different tracks within the space of nine days.

Roa, who lives in Garden Grove, heads into Sprint Week after winning the inaugural Bubby Jones/Ray Scheetz Memorial at Perris Auto Speedway on June 25th. That victory came two weeks after a second-place finish in the USAC/CRA main event at the Ventura Raceway.
 

While the win was his first of the 2022 campaign, Roa has had a good first half of the season. Thus far in 12 sprint car starts, the 31-year-old has 10 top 10 finishes and seven top fives. In addition to his starts in sprint cars, in January at the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma, he placed 15th in his preliminary night A Main, and 13th in the C Main at the finale.

Trying to put the fun back into his racing, over the winter Roa made the decision to not race for points in 2022. Thus far in those twelve main events starts, he has raced with four sanctioning bodies. The bodies are the aforementioned USAC/CRA Series, ASCS/CAS, and the winged King of Thunder and the World of Outlaws Series.

Roa, and his father Brett, left on the trek to the Midwest on Tuesday night. It will be their fifth Indiana Sprint Week. However, this time around they will be missing award-winning crew chief Zac Bozanich and longtime mechanic Joe Gibb who was unable to make the trip. The Roa’s will be joined by regular crew member Tyler Stockton and Pennsylvanian Zach Hollinger for the eight nights of action.

“Oh, I am excited,” the “Pride of Garden Grove” said when asked if he was pumped to be going back to Sprint Week. “It is going to be fun and it is going to be exciting. What I am looking forward to the most back there is the same as every trip. Lawrenceburg! I love going there.”

One thing that every driver must be concerned about right now is the tire situation. They are hard to come by for everyone including Roa.

“It is still a little questionable,” the driver frustratingly explained. “I think I found enough tires that were in good shape. Jason May (who owns the #8M 360 Roa occasionally drives) basically cleared his trailer out of what he had. That puts us in really good shape on left rears. I don’t know if we will even have to get a left rear while we are back there. I have one new medium, so at least we are showing up with something for the right rear. I have talked to some people about some good takeoffs they have. So, we have some tires to at least get started during the week. I just have to be sure we bring some home to hopefully run Santa Maria on August 6th in Jason’s car.”

After Friday’s race at Gas City, the series will travel to Kokomo Saturday, Lawrenceburg on Sunday, and the Circle City Speedway on Monday. Tuesday will be a night off before returning for the second half of the series on Wednesday at Terre Haute, Lincoln Park on Thursday, and Friday at Bloomington. The series will wrap up on the 30th at Tri State Speedway. As soon as that race is over, Roa will high tail it back to California to prepare for the reopening of one of his best tracks, the Santa Maria Raceway on August 6th.

Roa thanks all his sponsors for being able to take on Indiana Sprint Week and extends a special thanks to HD Industries, Burris Racing, and Inland Rigging who came up big for this special trip.

For fans who collect racing shirts, see Roa at each race. He will be bringing his newly released shirts on the trip and will have plenty available.

Local fans who cannot make it to Indiana for Sprint Week can catch all the action live on Flo Racing. Full details on how you can watch are available at https://www.floracing.com/.

In 2022, Roa will race USAC/CRA, USAC National, and other select events, in his #91R BR Performance/HD Industries Eagle. He will also drive the #8M for May Motorsports in select USAC West Coast events. The 2019 USAC Southwest and 2017 USAC West Coast champion is always open to discussing other driving opportunities.

Roa and the team want to thank the following sponsors for making the 2022 season possible. HD Industries, Burris Racing, Sander Engineering, Inland Rigging, Caltrol, “Biker” Bruce Fischer, Competition Suspension, ALR Virtual Services, K-1 Race Gear, Molecule, Rod End Supply, Driven Racing Oil, Baldwin Filters, and NGK Spark Plugs. In addition, the veteran driver offers thanks to RDM Mechanics, Fastenal, Coopers Propane, Ten West Towing, Ten West Environmental, TJM Distribution, and Westco International for sponsoring the #8M he will pilot for Jayson May on 10 occasions in 2022.

If you or your company would like to jump on board and receive recognition as a team partner throughout the 2022 racing season, please give the two-time USAC champion racer a phone call or drop him a note at the contact information on the top of this release.

Halligan Makes Big Gains at Williams Grove

Mid-Week Battle with Outlaws on Home Turf is Next

Mechanicsburg, PA – July 20, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Jeff Halligan took advantage of the World of Outlaw tune-up show at Williams Grove Friday night. It provided a chance to improve the Risser Motorsports No.45 at a place they have struggled this season, and it was an opportunity to compete under the time trial format that will be employed when the traveling series comes to town.

July 15: Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

[21 cars, Qualifying 2nd Heat 1st, Dash 1st (1), A-main 7th (1)]

Only 21 teams signed in at ‘The Grove’ Friday night but from the very start of the evening, it was pretty clear the Risser Motorsports / TheTreeCenter.com / Victory Auto of Lewistown / EMM Sales & Service / Jake’s Golf Carts / Pine Hill Trailers / Keystone Ag Spraying, No.45 was going to be a factor.

Halligan turned the quickest lap in hot laps, then backed it up with the second best lap during qualifying. His 17.305 was second only to Lance Dewease’s 17.233.

He didn’t stop there. Starting on the pole of heat race number two, the Ephrata (PA) driver rode the cushion for a convincing heat win, ripping off the eight laps in just over two and a half minutes (2:35.379).

The Outlaw format also includes a 6-lap Dash for the top qualifiers. Halligan won again in convincing fashion, besting Devon Borden by 1.360 seconds.

The 25-lap A-main was the only part of the night that didn’t go Halligan’s way. It was a solid effort, but not quite what he and the team had in mind. Jeff held the 2nd spot behind Dewease in the early going, but then slipped to 4th by mid-race.

The trend continued and Halligan found himself in 7th by lap fifteen. He managed to settle in there and hold the spot to the checkered flag.

“We had a great night. We had really good speed early and learned a lot. It was a big step from where we were earlier this season here (at Williams Grove). I’m looking forward to cleaning up my driving and making the right feature adjustments for this place.“, Halligan shared.

Up Next

The team’s planned trip to Lincoln Speedway last Saturday night was washed out by Mother Nature, so next up will be a date with the World of Outlaws on Wednesday, July 20th. The battle is one of those key dates Halligan and Risser Motorsports have been targeting on their schedule, and it will take place on Jeff’s home turf, Port Royal Speedway.

Placerville Speedway championship season rolls on with the $5,000-to-win Mark Forni Classic Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…The annual “Mark Forni Classic” is routinely the biggest night of the Hoosier Tire championship season and this Saturday the Placerville Speedway is pleased to host the 17th edition of the long-standing show.
A stacked four division program will be offered to race fans featuring the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged Sprint Cars, the Mountain Democrat Ltd. Late Models, Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks and Dwarf Cars.

The Winged 360 Sprint Car portion will dish out $5,000-to-win, $2,000 for second and $1,200 for third. The Ltd. Late Models will be vying for $800-to-win their feature, while the Pure Stocks main event offers $500-to-win.

The Forni family has had a great history in El Dorado County, with deep ties to the El Dorado County Fairgrounds and much of the land on which it sits. Much like his forefathers, Mark Forni had a great passion for the county fair and its attributes, especially the racetrack.

From the time he was a young child and the days when Placerville Speedway was known as “Hangtown Speedway,” Mark was actively involved with the weekly auto races, always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need involved with the sport he loved.

Later in life, Mark continued his contributions to local auto racing, sponsoring many race teams with his business, Forni’s Trucking. He later became a member of the El Dorado County Fair Board and focused on the issues regarding the future of the fair and the speedway. Mark Forni believed in working relationships. He understood the importance of race promoters, sponsorships, and the one key element for every event to be successful, the spectator.

In November of 2004, Mark was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. During his final months, Mark had the opportunity to say goodbye to friends and family and spend some special moments with his wife and children, a bittersweet time for those who knew and loved him so much. In the summer of 2005, Mark passed away at the early age of 45.

“Mark was the guy who got it done no matter what,” said former Placerville Speedway promoter Alan Padjen. “It didn’t matter how big of a problem we may have had. He would call me up and see what it would take to fix it. He didn’t just provide the resources either. Mark would be right there lending a hand right down to his final days. I miss him, I think everyone here misses him, he was a great guy.”

Auburn’s Andy Forsberg, Diamond Springs’ Dan Jinkerson and Oakley’s Nick Baldwin go into the Mark Forni Classic sitting atop the standings with the Thompson’s Winged Sprint Cars, Mountain Democrat Ltd. Late Models and Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks respectively.

Forsberg and Roseville’s Sean Becker are tied for the most Mark Forni Classic triumphs, with each driver having captured a trio of wins in the event. Last year saw Mather’s Kalib Henry capture the Forni for the first time in his career. As always, a solid field of cars are expected this weekend.

This Saturday's Ltd. Late Model and Pure Stock portion will also be part of the Competition Carburetion Fast Lap Award Tour. The driver with the fastest lap in the feature for both the Late Models and Pure Stocks will earn an extra $100 respectively.

Adult tickets for the Mark Forni Classic this Saturday July 23rd cost $18 while seniors 62+, military and juniors 12-17 will be $16. Kids 6-11 cost $8, while ages 5 and under are free. Purchase tickets online at https://www.eventsprout.com/event/points-race-13 or at the gate on race day.

Grandstand seating is general admission at each event, except for the reserved seats marked for season ticket holders. Please note if patrons sit in a reserved seat, they may be asked to move. Pit passes can be purchased at the pit gate or on Pit Pay to take advantage of the expanded seating area on the hill.

The pit gate will open at noon, with the front grandstand gate opening at 3pm. Happy Hour is offered when the gates open until 6pm in the grandstands featuring live music along with discounted Coors Light and Coors Original at the beer booth. The pit meeting will be held at 4:30pm with cars on track at 5:15. Hot laps, ADCO Driveline qualifying and racing will follow.

The Placerville Speedway is located on the beautiful El Dorado County Fairgrounds in Placerville, California. Take Hwy US-50 to Forni Road/Placerville Drive exit. Then go north on Placerville Drive to the Fairgrounds. The physical address is 100 Placerville Dr., Placerville, CA 95667.

Bates-Hamilton Racing and Tim Kaeding put together stout weekend at HK Classic

By Gary Thomas

Watsonville, CA…Continuing their recent trend of success Bates-Hamilton Racing and driver Tim Kaeding engineered another strong weekend at the HK Classic, accentuated by a charge from 19th to second on opening night.

The 12th annual event honoring Tim’s legendary grandpa Howard opened on Friday with the Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo. After drawing a late number in qualifying Kaeding timed-in 24th overall, before finishing seventh in his heat race, and having to charge from 7th to 2nd in the B-main.

Starting from row 10 the San Jose wheelman began to pick off cars early and had made his way up to 11th by the time a caution waved on lap-five. He continued his charge forward and moved into fourth by the halfway point. TK carved his way past DJ Netto to snag third on lap 20, before going to work on second running Mitchell Faccinto.

Following an exciting side-by-side battle with Faccinto he overtook the spot with four circuits remaining. Kaeding then crossed the Ed Entz checkered flag with a solid runner up finish aboard the Teichert Construction/ VinylTech PVC Pipe/ Clow Valve/ BenefitRFP No. 42X.

“I can’t say enough about my team for busting their tails and getting us to the point of having these solid finishes,” he commented. “With the way our year started and me getting hurt a couple months ago, it’s great to put together several strong runs. Big thanks to Roger and Lori Hamilton, Josh Bates and his entire family, Fish and every single person that helps on this race car. Tonight, this one was for us old guys because we aren’t going away.”

The BHR team returned on Saturday to record one of its finest overall nights of the season with the NARC Fujitsu 410 Sprint Car Series. Kaeding qualified fourth fastest out of 38 cars, ran second in his heat race and third in the dash. Lining up in the second row of the 30-lap feature he proceeded to tally a fourth-place finish at the conclusion.

“I’m really proud of the entire BHR team effort and results from this past weekend,” stated Roger Hamilton. “The HK Classic holds a very special meaning to Tim for obvious reasons and for me and my family as well. BHR co-owner Josh Bates, along with Brad & Scotty did a great job preparing our cars and adjusting each night. Tim put on quite a show Friday night carving his way through the field in the feature, and Saturday was our best overall result of the season from qualifying through the main event finish.”

Kaeding and Bates-Hamilton Racing will look to keep the momentum rolling at the Stockton Dirt Track this Saturday with the NARC 410 Sprint Cars. The evening of racing will honor Northern California driving legend LeRoy Van Conett, who accumulated eight Northern Auto Racing Club championships in his career. TK captured the event back in 2018 and hopes to do so again on Saturday.

Bates-Hamilton Racing would like to thank Teichert Construction, VinylTech PVC Pipe, Clow Valve, BenefitRFP, Dan Ewart Sales, B Scadden Design, Advanced Drainage Systems, Custom Pipe and Fabrication, Tigre, North Bay Waterworks, SIP, Star Pipe Products, Kaeding Performance, Kistler Engines, Maxim Chassis, Bell Helmets, K1 Race Gear, Warehouse Paint, Arbo Tech, Performance Powder Coating, Sellers Race Wings, Rod Tiner Racing, ART Enterprises, Tiner-Hirst Enterprise and Vanlare Steering Repair for their support this season.

Now all these years later, Brian, BF, Bud, Red and of course Brent are still doing whatever they can to help our race team. It’s just what they do, they support the racers and the racing community.

Becker Reunites with Vertullo Motorsports at HK Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting the call from Vertullo Motorsports to compete during HK Classic weekend in Watsonville, CA, Sean Becker would finish 11th in 360ci competition on Saturday night, and rebounded from an opening lap flat tire to finish 13th with the KWS/NARC Series on Saturday night.

“I really want to thank Dave and Debbie Vertullo for the opportunity to reunite with them and compete at the HK Classic,” Sean Becker said. “We were fortunate to win the event together in 2021, and it was fun to tea back up with them as well as Guy Morrison. Friday night I didn’t execute well enough in qualifying, and then we struggled to get anything going in the main.”

Friday night Becker got the weekend under way by timing the Starr Property Management/Morrison Concrete No. 83v 17th fastest, just narrowly missing the heat race inversion.

Lining up fifth in his heat race, Becker was able to hang on to the fifth and final transfer position into the feature event, though he would be mired in the back of the starting line up as he took the green flag from 16th.

From 16th, Becker searched around the Ocean Speedway trying to find a line to set him up to make a run forward. After slipping back to 20th as he tried a few things, Becker would settle into a little groove using the low line as he was able to work his way back into 15th at the race’s halfway point.

With the bottom staying really good as the race clicked laps off, Becker would crack the Top-10 on with 10-to-go. Running in 10th, Becker would get into a battle for the final position in the Top-10, and when the race ended he came home with an 11th place finish.

Shifting to 410ci action on Saturday night, Becker would endure a mechanical issue during time trials which hindered him and put him 26th on the speed chart out of the 38 cars that took time on this night.

With his work cut out for himself and Vertullo Motorsports team, ‘The Shark’ finished seventh in heat race action and found himself in the third row of the ‘B’.

In a hotly contested ‘B’, Becker had his elbows up as he chased after one of the four ‘golden tickets’ into the HK Classic feature event. Getting into third, Becker would hold his position and successfully earn the transfer.

Lining up 23rd in the feature event, a flat tire on the race’s attempted start forced Becker to the pit area to make a quick change before rejoining the field.

With the track offering two distinct lines over the course of the 30-lapper, Becker again was able to work his way forward just as he did on Friday night. Essentially coming from the 24th starting position, Becker began making his way towards the top-10 on the 13th lap as he moved into 19th, before taking over 17th on the 15th lap.

As laps clicked off feverishly, time was of the essence and Becker was making moves as quickly as he could. Working his way into 14th on the race’s 18th, lap, the following lap Becker moved into 13th.

Battling with Ryan Bernal for a few laps for track position, Becker would slip back to 14th briefly, before he was able to fight back and get 13th to cap his weekend off.

“After the mishap in time trials, we fought really hard to get into the show,” Becker said. “Despite getting a flat on the start of the race, we had a really fast car and that led us to a pretty respectable finish from 24th.”

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-17, Wins-0, Top 5’s- 5, Top-10’s- 8

ON TAP: Becker is slated to return to action at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night aboard the Monhoff Racing No. 35.

Kalib Henry 19th at HK Classic; Eyes Mark Forni Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA: Though last weekend’s HK Classic didn’t go as Kalib Henry and the McColloch Motorsports team wished, sprits are high for Henry as he looks forward to defending his 2021 Mark Forni Classic win this Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

“Saturday night in Watsonville, CA was a rough one for our team,” Kalib Henry said. “We missed the inversion in time trials, but we bounced back well and made the feature. Unfortunately, after a good start in the ‘A’, I think we sealed a tire up and couldn’t do much after that.”

With 38 cars taking time on Saturday night with the KWS/NARC Series at the HK Classic, Henry narrowly missed the heat race inversion as he timed the McColloch’s RV Repair/Davis Truck Painting/Driven Homes Inc. backed no. 17 in 17th fastest in time trials.

Lining up in the third row of his heat race, the Mather, CA native turned Rocklin, CA resident looked very strong in heat race competition as he surged his way to a third-place finish and punched his ticket into the feature event.

Gridding the field from the 16th starting spot in the ‘A’, Henry showcased that same speed from his heat race as he quickly carved his way up to 10th when the race’s first caution flag was displayed.

When the race resumed, Henry no longer had that early speed as he was unable to make traction on the slick Ocean Speedway surface. Slowly slipping back through the field, Henry tried everything he could from his seat to salvage the feature.

As the checkered flag flew, Henry brought the McColloch Motorsports entry home with a 19th place finish.

“We had a good start ot the ‘A’, and that tire killed us during the second half of the race,” he added. “I am happy with how things felt, and I am really excited to get back to Placerville Speedway this weekend and defend last year’s Forni win.”

McColloch Motorsports would like to thank McColloch’s RV Repair, Davis Truck Painting, Driven Homes, Inc., ART Speed Equipment, Hansen Machine, Rockstar Services, and Gary Morgan Graphics for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 6, Wins: 0, Top-5’s: 1, Top-10’s- 4

ON TAP: McColloch Motorsports and Kalib Henry will be back in action on Saturday night as they will head to Placerville Speedway for the Mark Forni Classic.

 

 

Austin O’Neal Poised For Sun Dollar Nationals Tomorrow Night at I-80 Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Making the business decision to not compete on Friday night at US-36 Raceway due to track conditions, Austin O’Neal and the Austin O’Neal Racing team are poised for tomorrow night’s Sun Dollar Nationals at I-80 Speedway after picking up fourth place finishes at the track during their last two visits.

“We are all excited to get back to I-80 Speedway on Wednesday night,” Austin O’Neal said. “We have been pretty good there the last two times, and with us essentially sitting out last Friday’s event, we are eager to get back racing.”

With extremely rough and tumble track conditions, O’Neal made the decision to park his Marmon/Keystone/Weld Racing/River Valley Ag No. 11 entry on Friday night after timing in second fastest in his qualifying group.

As the night continued on, and several cars got upside down with the tricky conditions, O’Neal felt better about his decision, but it has left him chomping at the bit to get back in the seat.

On the schedule this week for O’Neal is a return trip to I-80 Speedway on Wednesday night for the Sun Dollar Nationals, and after his last two visits to the track O’Neal is eager to see how he and his team can stack up.

Finishing fourth back on June 3rd, O’Neal’s most recent visit on July 8th was his most impressive run of the season as he charged from 14th to finish fourth.

Having a pair of Top-5’s to his credit, O’Neal has some confidence heading into Wednesday’s event.

“I was happy with the speed we had on Friday night when we were competing, and to mix that with the success we have had at I-80 the last two times we have ran there has me excited to get back in the seat on Wednesday and see if we can contend for a win.”

Austin O’Neal Racing would like to thank Marmon/Keystone, Weld Racing, River Valley Ag, Kaw Valley Companies, RacinBoys, HMC Performance Coatings, Mel Hambelton Ford Racing, Champion Oil, Taffs Carpets, Rod End Supply, Clemons Home Team, Mettec Titanium, V&L Properties, Toby’s Coatings, NGK Spark Plugs, Maxim Racing, Capital Sign Co., Wesmar Racing Engines, and Schure Built Suspensions for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-8, Wins-0, Top 5’s-2, Top 10’s-4

ON TAP: O’Neal returns to action on Wednesday night at I-80 Speedway.

Amantea Tackling Hyper Racing 600 Speedweek Races Before Making BOSS Series Debut This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions – ORANGEVILLE, Pa. (July 19, 2022) – Joey Amantea is in the midst of a busy week with six straight races in a row.

Amantea kicked off Hyper Racing 600 Speedweek on Monday at Greenwood Valley Action Tracks, where he was in contention to transfer through a B Main before he was spun late in the race.

Speedweek continues Tuesday at Spirit Auto Center Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J. Amantea will also race in the micro sprint spectacle on Wednesday at Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa., and Thursday at Linda’s Speedway in Jonestown, Pa.

“There’s a lot of good competition so hopefully we can put together complete nights and be a contender,” he said. “We’re also really excited for the end of the week when we will race with the BOSS Series.”

Amantea plans to make his debut with the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series on Friday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., before racing on Saturday at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway in Imperial, Pa. It will mark his debut at both tracks as well.

“Considering I was battling the guys that regularly win with the BOSS Series during the USAC National Sprint Cars races last month I want to go for top fives, podiums and maybe even a win this weekend,” he said. “It’ll all be new for us. Lernerville seems really cool whenever the All Stars and World of Outlaws race there. And everything I’ve heard about Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway is that it’s the biggest track in the country. I’m excited to see how we fare.”

Mallett Sweeps USCS Series Weekend in Georgia and Alabama

Inside Line Promotions – PHENIX CITY, Ala. (July 19, 2022) – Jordon Mallett swept a USCS Series doubleheader in Georgia and Alabama last weekend.

The pair of triumphs doubled his season win total to four victories at four tracks in four states. It marked his first weekend sweep since May 2018.

“It feels good for sure after having some weeks off,” he said. “We’ve been working really hard in the shop to better our program all around. With being off for those few weeks with the cancellations and stuff like that, it felt good to see the work pay off and know we’re heading in the right direction.”

The action got off to a strong start on Friday at Boyds Speedway in Ringgold, Ga., where Mallett advanced from third to win a heat race. He then gained a spot in the dash to place fifth. Mallett continued to move forward in the feature as he rallied from fifth into the lead at the midpoint of the 25-lap main event.

“We were real close from when we unloaded out of the trailer,” he said. “I was pretty pleased with the car we brought with us. We got ourselves out front in the heat race and that got us into the dash. I was the first guy to draw and pulled the back row for the dash. We made a few changes for the dash to see if it helped or hurt. I didn’t really like the changes I made. That made it a little tougher for the feature. Having to start fifth wasn’t ideal in my mind. The race track was good. We made a few changes and it was super solid in the feature. I was able to consistently move my way forward. I was strategically getting positions one by one. You needed to be able to move around. We picked our way through there after I found what the car wanted.”

Mallett gained positions each time he hit the track on Saturday at East Alabama Motor Speedway, where he maneuvered from third to second in a heat race and from fourth to second in the dash before winning the 14th annual Randy Helton Memorial feature from the outside of the front row.

“I didn’t really know what to expect,” he said. “I’d been there one other time I could recall and it was super heavy so I didn’t have a good notebook to go off. I was searching in the heat race after I got to second, but I knew we had a really good piece. We just kept working at it and the track kept getting more technical.

“In the feature we took the lead in through turns one and two and started riding from there. I never saw a nose. The race track changed a lot. I was ripping the top and had to move down to get in line because it was trying to take a little rubber on one end. I think the second-place car started to run me down when I got bottled up behind a couple of cars, but I hadn’t shown all my cards. You always keep another card in your back pocket for when you need it.”

Mallett’s three USCS Series victories this season are tied for the second most.

Mallett plans to join the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour this Friday at Batesville Motor Speedway in Batesville, Ark., and Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., during the Sizzlin’ Summer Speedweek.

Hagar Heading to Pair of ASCS National Tour Speedweek Races in Arkansas

Inside Line Promotions – MARION, Ark. (July 19, 2022) – Derek Hagar is joining the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour this weekend for a pair of races during Sizzlin’ Summer Speedweek.

Hagar plans to compete on Friday at Batesville Motor Speedway in Batesville, Ark., and Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. He enters the weekend with a pair of ASCS National Tour triumphs this season, making him one of only two drivers to win multiple features.

“Our race program is pretty solid,” he said. “We’re not racing as much as we want to. We have to pick and choose right now. When we do show up, I hope these guys hate seeing us pull through the pits.”

Hagar hasn’t competed at Batesville Motor Speedway since winning a feature at the track in July 2015.

“It’s a nice facility,” he said. “It’s not a sprint car track. It races more of the late models and modifieds. This week it’ll be hard to tell what it will do with it being 102 degrees outside.”

Hagar has won three of his four races at I-30 Speedway this season, including an ASCS National Tour event.

“It’s one of my favorite race tracks,” he said. “It’s close to home. We have a good fan base there, but that’s Crawley territory. To hear the cheers when my name is called is pretty special.”

Gravel Leads Big Game Motorsports to Jokers Wild and Knight Before the Kings Royal Victories

Inside Line Promotions – ROSSBURG, Ohio (July 19, 2022) – David Gravel produced a pair of wins, three top fives and five top 10s during five straight days of World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races in Ohio last week.

“I felt like the week went well,” the Big Game Motorsports driver said. “I’m very happy with the performance all week.”

The action began a week ago Tuesday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, which hosted the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic. Gravel timed in second quickest in his group before he won both a heat race and the dash. He capped the night by placing fifth in the A Main.

“We put ourselves in position to win and just kind of missed it in the feature,” he said. “We still had a decent run.”

Eldora Speedway featured the next four nights of racing and Gravel kicked it off in style by winning the Jokers Wild last Wednesday.

“It was just a relief that we won,” he said. “It’s real hard to win these races. Just to show ourselves we can win races was a good feeling. Eldora is a really good track for me and it’s a track I’m very confident at.”

Gravel placed seventh during The Historical Big One on Thursday.

“We qualified good and were able to charge from fifth to win the heat,” he said. “That put us in position. We weren’t bad in the feature, but just didn’t have the mojo to challenge for the win.”

Gravel returned to Victory Lane on Saturday afternoon during The Knight Before the Kings Royal program that was carried over after rain invaded the track on Friday.

“We continued to qualify good all week and put ourselves in position,” he said. “We gained a spot in the dash to start fourth in the feature, which was huge. We got to second and then the lead. We controlled the race from there. That was a race that went our way. The car was really good and we took advantage.

“Running second I knew my only opportunity was going to be in lapped traffic. I had to save a little. Once we got to traffic the leader was going to come to me. He slid a lapped car. I had a big run and that was my opportunity to pull the trigger. I slid him and a couple of lapped cars. A lap or two later the track took rubber so it worked out perfect.”

The week wrapped up on Saturday with the Kings Royal. Gravel placed ninth for his 35th top 10 of the season.

“We qualified well and had an opportunity to start second in the A Main (if we won the heat race),” he said. “I got to second, but I clipped the wall on the frontstretch and that took away my chance. Then in the feature we were good early. On the last double-file restart it was my worst one of them all. That took us out of contention to battle for the win. We were running out of fuel and hit the wall and lost a couple of spots at the end. I thought we should have ended seventh and we finished ninth. We have to be a little better to capitalize in those big races.”

The team has a trio of races in Central Pennsylvania this week. Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal hosts a show on Wednesday followed by the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals on Friday and Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg.

QUICK RESULTS –

July 12 – Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio – Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 1 (2); Feature: 5 (1).

Alex Pokorski, Akright Auto Racing Team look to bounce back after rough ride at Plymouth

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 19, 2022 – The Cambridge Dictionary defines a race car driver as “ a person who drives a car in a competition to see who can be the fastest and finish first.”

Alex Pokorski was carrying out that very definition behind the wheel of the No. 4 Akright Auto Racing Team 360 Sprint Car in the opening laps of the Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car 25-lap A-main at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 16.

While running second in the 22-car main event field, Pokorski had his sights set firmly on tracking down the leading car of Travis Arenz when on lap 5 his car launched into a wild series of flips, cartwheels and pirouettes, which included hard contact with the turn four fence.

While the hard crash left his No. 4 machine heavily crumpled with a garden variety of damage on multiple sections of the car, Pokorski emerged from the melee uninjured.

“The car was fast all night,” Pokorski said. “The track was fast as well and had a big cushion that I caught just wrong. Fortunately, I’m doing well. It was amazing to watch the video of the accident, after walking away with barely a bruise.”

With a strong field of 32 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars on hand, the night got off to a promising start as Pokorski turned the second-fastest qualifying time in the first heat race grouping and the 17th fastest overall qualifying lap with a time of 12.816 seconds.

After starting third in the first 10-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car heat race, Pokorski slipped underneath outside front row starter Tim Haddy to take over second in turn one of the opening lap. Pokorski kept up a quick pace on the lightning fast and tacky track surface throughout the race to finish second and earn an automatic transfer to the A main.

Pokorski lined up on the outside of the front row of the 25-lap main event beside polesitter Travis Arenz and settled into second in the running order in turn two of the opening lap.

The third-year 360 Sprint Car driver tested the treacherous cushion during the first few laps of the main event in an effort to close the gap on the leader. However, the undulating cushion jumped up and bit Pokorski on lap 5 to end his night and relegate him to a 21st place finish.

“We are going to take everything apart and hopefully get it back together for this coming Saturday at Plymouth,” Pokorski said. “I’m thankful for my car owner, Spyder Akright, my parents, crew and sponsors for supporting me this year. It’s been a bit rough, but hopefully we can get some good luck and finishes going forward.”

Saturday’s accident at The Plymouth Dirt Track forced the team to skip the Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association event at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. on Sunday, July 17.

Alex Pokorski and the Akright Auto Racing Team are aiming to return to competition at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. this Saturday, July 23.

This Saturday is the inaugural Plymouth Racing Wall of Fame Induction Night with the new Wall of Fame display set to debut underneath the grandstands and the Class of 2022 inductees recognized during intermission.

Spectator gates open at 4:30 p.m. with PDTR 360 Sprint Car group qualifying at 5:30 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m.

BIRCH RUN UP NEXT FOR MUST SEE RACING

July 19, 2022 – The Must See Racing Sprint Series Presented by Engine Pro will be back in action this Friday night July 22 when the series invades Birch Run Speedway in Birch Run, Michigan. It will be the first time the series has been in action since July 1.

Friday’s event will be race #6 towards the 2022 MSR title chase. The 2022 season has been highly competitive. In the five races held thus far, there have been four different winners. Charlie Schultz holds a slim 8-point lead over Joe Liguori in the points chase.

The return to Birch Run Speedway will be a quick turnaround. The series was just there on June 10. It appeared Jacob Dolinar would collect his first MSR feature win. He would spin out late in the race after leaking fluid got on his tires and caused him to spin with a huge lead. Five-time MSR champion Jimmy McCune would ultimately capture that event.

Birch Run Speedway has provided great racing when MSR comes to town and Friday will be no exception. A full night of racing is planned to include time trials, heat races, and a 30-lap feature event for the ‘Fastest Short Track Cars in the World’.

Pavement ‘hot shoe’ Bobby Santos III will highlight the roster of expected drivers for Friday. Santos swept the opening two MSR events in South Boston, Virginia. Santos hasn’t competed in MSR competition since early May as he has been focusing on other racing interests.

Other drivers expected to compete include Jason Blonde, Kevin Feeney, Ryan Litt, Jimmy McCune, Liguori, Dolinar, Tom Jewell, Jeff Bloom, Schultz, and Rick Holley among others.

Friday Podium Highlights Mitchell Faccinto’s HK Classic Weekend

PETERSEN MEDIA- Mitchell Faccinto and the Tarlton Motorsports team took part in last weekend’s Howard Kaeding Classic at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, CA. During the two-day extravaganza, Faccinto’s Friday night podium with highlight the weekend.

“I thought our car was really good all weekend,” Faccinto said. “Friday night I was able to drive from sixth to the lead, and on Saturday we got going pretty good after a poor qualifying result, but I made a couple of mistakes that cost us a few spots in the end.”

Kicking the Howard Kaeding Classic weekend off on Friday night at Watsonville, CA’s Ocean Speedway, Faccinto would go out line in time trials and despite the track being extremely slick he was still able to time the Tarlton and Son Inc./EZ Haul/Executive Auto backed No.21 in 16th fastest and inside the heat race inversion.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Faccinto’s heat win was of the utmost importance as it not only transferred him into the feature event, it also locked the Hanford, CA driver into the six-lap Dash.

Drawing the eight for the Dash draw, Faccinto would improve his feature event starting position by one row as he worked up to a sixth-place finish.

Taking the green flag for the 30-lapper from the outside of the third row, Faccinto ride the rim to the front as he set a torrid pace on the cushion. Powering into the lead on the ninth lap, Faccinto would lead until lap 19 when Dominic Scelzi took to the bottom and snuck underneath Faccinto and TK quickly followed suit.

Losing the top two positions while working the top, Faccinto was still able to hang on to a podium as he closed Friday night out with a third-place finish.

Getting the 410ci engine bolted in for Saturday’s KWS/NARC portion of the HK Classic, Faccinto would get timed in 15th fastest on this night and again found himself on the front row of his heat race.

Finishing second in heat race competition, Faccinto was firmly in the 30-lap feature event though he would be mired back in 16th to kick the race off.

A strong start to the race saw Faccinto power his way into the Top-10 within the first few laps. Racing into eighth by the race’s halfway point, Faccinto would run in eighth until the 22nd lap when a slight miscue saw him fall back to 10th. Looking to rebound from the miscue, Faccinto would hook up in a battle for position inside the Top-10 over the final few laps but he found himself on the outside when the race ended as he brought home an 11th place finish.
“I really feel like we are on the verge of going on a run here as we get that much better each night out,” Faccinto said. “Stockton this weekend should be a good weekend for our team as Drew Warner and I have a pretty good track record together at the track.”

Tarlton Motorsports would like to thank Tarlton and Son Inc., EZ Haul, Executive Auto Sales, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, System 1 Ignition, Vortex Wings, and BG Lubricants for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 27, Wins: 1, Top 5’s: 6, Top 10’s: 15.

ON TAP: Mitchell Faccinto will be back in action at Ocean Speedway this Friday and Saturday night for the Howard Kaeding Classic.

 

 

Blake Carrick Hard Charges to Second Place Finish at HK Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA: After taking last week off, Blake Carrick returned to action in a big way over the weekend. Heading to Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, CA for the Howard Kaeding Classic, Carrick charged from 18th to fifth on Friday night in Taco Bravo action before a 12th to 2nd run with the King of the West/NARC Series on Saturday.

“It was fun to run through the field both nights, but if I could have timed in a little better, it would have made things much easier on us,” Blake Carrick said. “Huge thanks to my guys for their hard work over the course of the weekend.”

The weekend opened up on Friday night with the Lincoln, CA driver timing the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 38B in 18th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up fifth in heat race competition, Carrick’s run to third successfully locked him into the 30-lap feature event where he rolled off of the starting grid from the 18th starting position.

As the race went green, much of the field went to work on the high side of the speedway, but Carrick and a few others had a different idea as they ran the bottom. Carrick was stuck to the thin strip of moisture on the bottom of the speedway and used it to work his way forward.

Cracking the Top-10 at the halfway point of the 30-lap affair, Carrick continued to work his way forward as he moved into eighth on the 16th lap. Continuing to work the bottom, Carrick made his move into the Top-Five coming to the white as he capped the opener off with a run from 18th to fifth.

Putting the 410ci power plant in for Saturday’s KWS/NARC show, Carrick nearly matched Friday’s qualifying effort as he timed in 16th quickest on this night.

As the last car to make the heat race inversion, Carrick lined up on the front row and wired the field as he picked up the win and punched his ticket into the HK Classic finale.

Taking the green flag from 12th on this night, Carrick again went right to the bottom once the feature event came to life. Carrick worked into the Top-10 in just four laps, and powered his way into the Top-Five by lap 13.

With a very strong car under him, Carrick kept his left side tires glued to the moisture around the infield berm as he worked into fourth on the 15th lap.

Taking over third on lap 17, Carrick was able to dip under Joel Myers Jr on the 21st lap and quickly begin pressuring Justin Sanders for the lead while they duo dealt with slower cars.

In the closing laps, Carrick would pull alongside Sanders to challenge for the lead, but traffic made things tricky and Carrick ultimately ended up with a second place finish.

“We had a couple of shots at the race lead late in the ‘A’, but battling Sanders in traffic was tough,” Carrick said. “It was a great result for us, and hopefully we can continue to be fast at the Forni this weekend.”

Blake Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, Interstate Oil, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Emerald, Timberworks Construction, Hanson Truss, Eddie’s Lincoln Automotive, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support

ON TAP: Carrick will be back in action on Saturday in Placerville, CA.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-26, Wins-1, Top 5’s-8, Top 10’s-15

 

 

Justyn Cox Sixth at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting back to racing for the first time since the 4th of July holiday, Justyn Cox put a strong night together that culminated with a sixth-place finish.

“Unfortunately, I woke up sick on the 4th of July, and had to take a couple of weeks off,” Justyn Cox said. “It felt good to get back in the car on Saturday, but I was definitely huffing and puffing over the course of the feature event.”

Checking in at Placerville Speedway, Cox timed his Berco Redwood/Berry Lumber/Michael David Winery backed No. 31c in 12th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Cox slipped into second when the race but to life but was relentless on the top side of the speedway. Banging off the cushion lap after lap, Cox’s hard work would reward him coming to the checkered as he edged Michael Ing and the flag stand and earned the all-important berth into the redraw.

As fate would have it, Cox would pull the eight pill for the third time in as many Placerville Speedway redraws he has qualified for in 2022.

On the racy Placerville Speedway surface, Cox hooked up in an entertaining battle with Steven Tiner as the duo fought for a position inside the Top-Five. While the battle was entertaining it didn’t allow for either driver to make a run through the field as they continued to battle each other.

With a thick curb built up around the mile bullring, and some tricky ruts on the bottom, the track would be technical, and it made for their battle to be that much more entertaining.

When the Darren Stahl flag was displayed to the field, Cox brough the Cox-Berco Racing entry home with a sixth-place finish.

“I had a really fun battle with Steven Tiner, but that kind of hindered either one of us from making a run up through the field,” Cox added. “I think we had a car that was better than sixth place, but with it being the first one back in a few weeks, and me still building my stamina back up I am happy with it.”

The Cox-Berco Racing team would like to thank Berco Redwood, Berry Lumber, Michael David Winery, MDW Sports, Stroppini Enterprises, Cranked Naturals, Trex, Master Metal Products, Adrian Blanco Jewelry, PM Truck Repair, Justice Brothers, K&N, Konnected, A.R.T., Sacramento Theatrical Lighting, College Cyclery, Arai, Racing Optics, All American Powder Coating, VSR, , Tim’s Hot Rod Shop, Shell Shock, Don Ott Racing Engines, and Richmond Engines for their continued support.

ON TAP: Cox will be back in action on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway for the Mark Forni Classic.

Justin Sanders Notches First Career HK Classic Win

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night at Ocean Speedway, Justin Sanders broke through and finally claimed another marquee win at his home track with his first career HK Classic win.

“This is a race that I have wanted to win for a while, but it had just eluded me over the years,” Justin Sanders said. “Marquee wins are extra special and to win this at my home track in pretty cool. There is a lot of prestige that comes along with an HK Classic win and to add my name to the trophy is awesome.”

Following a sixth place run in the 360 HK Classic on Friday night to open the weekend up, Sanders got Saturday night kicked off by timing the Farmers Brewing/Mittry Construction/North County Plastering backed No. 2x in 11th fastest in time trials.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, the Aromas, CA driver got the jump over Mitchell Faccinto and took over the early lead. Once out front, Sanders never looked back as he picked up the win and earned enough points to punch his ticket into the Sunnyvalley Bacon Powered Dash.

Picking up the win in the six-lap Dash over Willie Croft, Sanders sat in prime position to pick up his first career HK Classic as he earned the pole and eventually led the field to green for the 30-lap feature event.

After the initial start was waived off with drivers having issues, the next start saw Sanders get the jump and go to work on the slick Ocean Speedway surface. With the bottom really good, Sanders was still able to make the top work in the early goings of the race as he fended off the likes of Joel Myers Jr as the leaders quickly found traffic.

As the top started to go away, Blake Carrick was working the bottom with a full head of steam and poked his nose under Sanders which ultimately alerted him to change lines.

Despite still being strong on top, it was apparent that the low groove was better and Sanders was able to make the move and change his line. Dealing with dense traffic in the race’s closing laps, Sanders would fend off the charging Carrick and pick up his eighth win of the 2022 season.

“To finally get our first win of the season at Ocean Speedway and it be a race like this is great,” Sanders added. “I want to thank the Mittry Family and all of this team’s great partners for all of their support.”

Justin and his team would like to thank Farmers Brewing, Mittry Construction, North County Plastering, Alkaline88, Andy’s Construction, Roadside 24hr Service, Wicked Cushion, Roger’s Diner, Factory Kahne, BG Labels and Tee’s, Walker Performance Filtration, Dixon and Son Tires, Ernie’s Service Center, East Lake Village, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., DMI, Keizer Wheels, Wings Unlimited, Ti64 Titanium, AIS Heating and Sheet Metal, Fred Lint and Family, JonSan Racing, Sandblast Service, G&N Construction, Steitz Towing, Durden Construction, Ernie’s Service Center, and Steve Duppman Racing for their continued support in 2022.

ON TAP: Sanders is now set to make a return trip to Skagit Speedway this weekend for the 360 Summer Nationals.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-37, Wins-8, Top 5’s-25, Top-10’s-32

Paul Nienhiser Picks Up First Two Wins of 2022 Season and Adds Another Runner Up Finish for Good Measure

PETERSEN MEDIA: A busy weekend of racing for Paul Nienhiser saw the Chapin, IL driver finally pick up first win of the season as he scored two wins and another second-place finish during a three-race stretch.

“It was a great weekend for us, and it was nice to finally get the monkey off of our back in 2022 and get a win,” Paul Nienhiser said. “We had a shot at the weekend sweep, but a little bad luck on Sunday night put us in just too deep of a hole to overcome in the feature event.”

Thursday night, Nienhiser was in action with the Sprint Invaders at Bloomfield Speedway as he was aboard the Scott Bonar backed No. 50 car. Picking up a heat race win, Nienhiser was Dash eligible where his second-place run lined him up on the front row of the feature event.

On a slick Bloomfield surface, Nienhiser jumped on the throttle when the green was displayed and made his money riding the rim around the speedway. Pounding the cushion, Nienhiser was very stout in the feature however kept traffic in mind as he began to approach in the race’s latter stages.

Seeing how the lapped cars were using the lower side of the speedway, Nienhiser would quickly learn that rubber started going down on the speedway. Getting down low himself, Nienhiser would fend off a couple of challenges from Chase Randall as he was able to keep his machine up front and race to his first win of the season.

Friday’s scheduled MOWA event succumbed to rain, so Nienhiser made a last-minute decision to go 305ci racing on Saturday night in Burlington, IA.

With heat races being lined up by points, Nienhiser lined the CAM2 Lubricants/Buffalo Wild Wings/Innovative Design backed No. 9x up in the fourth row of his heat with no points to his credit. On a very locked down racing surface, Nienhiser let his veteran savvy carry him to the front as he carved his way to a third-place finish and locked into the ‘A’.

Taking the green flag from the 10th starting position, Nienhiser again had his work cut out for himself. Mirroring his heat race effort, Nienhiser again had his elbows up and worked his way forward.

Racing into second late in the race, Nienhiser’s attention turned to race leader, Travis Pence, who is also a crew member on Scott Bonar’s No. 50 car. Taking the white flag in second, Nienhiser would turn in a near perfect lap that saw him make a crossover move on Pence coming to the checkered, giving him his second win of the season in a thrilling fashion.

Sunday night brought on more Sprint Invaders action as Nienhiser, and Bonar returned to action together. Lining up fourth in his heat race, a front-end failure led to a heat race DNF which put Nienhiser in the ninth row of the feature event.

From 17th, Nienhiser went to work on the tricky surface which was choppy, and slick but offered a top and bottom groove.

As the race came to life it was simply for Nienhiser, go where the others weren’t. Running like a man possessed, Nienhiser quickly worked through the field at will and utilized others mistakes to take over second.

Once in second, Chase Randall had already built up nearly a straight away lead and Nienhiser did not have much time to track him down. Doing all he could to cut into the lead, Nienhiser ran out of laps, and capped the weekend off with a second-place finish.

“We made some changes on the No. 50 car over last week, and I think that was crucial in us having the weekend we had,” Nienhiser said. “It was a really fun weekend and I have to thank all the sponsors that are associated with all of these cars for making it all possible.”

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Lubricants, Buffalo Wild Wings, Innovative Design, Mason Sound, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Signature Signs & Design, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, American Rental Center, Fierce Herbicide, Guse’s Pub & Eatery, Wessler Bros Agency, Willhite Mowing, T&K Tree Services, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Midland Performance, Simpson Race Products, Smith Titanium, and Premier Powder Coating for their continued support.

Nienhiser would also like to thank Midland Performance, Kinney Racing Engines, Rockstar Wraps, Heartland Trailer Manufacturing, Robert’s Tire Center, and Stronghurst Collision for their support of the No. 50 car.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-13, Wins-2, Top 5’s-8, Top 10’s-10

ON TAP: Nienhiser has another big weekend on tap as he will be at Jacksonville Speedway on Friday night with MOWA and the 305ci division before following MOWA to Spoon River on Sunday.

Dover Establishes Quick Time Before Producing Top Five at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (July 18, 2022) - Jack Dover posted his second Quick Time Award and top-five result of the season at Huset's Speedway on Sunday evening.

Dover opened the action by laying down the quickest lap in qualifying for the second straight weekly program at the high-banked track.

"Setting quick time again was pretty awesome," he said. "It builds your confidence and momentum throughout the night."

Dover, who was driving for Chris and Rick Bowers, finished fifth in a heat race to advance into the feature redraw. He pulled the No. 4 to line up on the outside of the second row in the main event

"In the heat race it was just fall in line because the track was too good," he said. "Then in the feature I messed up and put the wrong setup on. I tied the left rear down too hard. I didn't have any grip on the right rear tire. I just rode around and tried to survive."

Dover battled for a top five throughout the race before scoring a fifth-place result. That moved him up to fifth in the championship standings - only four points out of fourth place and 29 points behind the leader.

Dover will climb back into his No. 53 sprint car this Wednesday for a race at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., before returning to Huset's Speedway on Sunday in the Bowers' No. 81.

QUICK RESULTS -

July 17 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 5 (4); Feature: 5 (4).

SEASON STATS -

21 races, 1 win, 6 top fives, 10 top 10s, 15 top 15s, 17 top 20s

Wilson Produces 13th-Place Outing During Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic

Inside Line Promotions – ROSSBURG, Ohio (July 18, 2022) – A 13th-place result highlighted five straight nights of racing with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series last week for Greg Wilson and the Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics sponsored Seeling Motorsports team.

The busy week got off to a strong start last Tuesday when Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, hosted the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic. Wilson timed in 10th quickest in his group and advanced from fifth to third place during a heat race. He then battled for a top 10 throughout the feature before ending 13th – his second-best World of Outlaws result of the season.

“I was pretty happy,” he said. “Obviously with one of my sponsors being the title sponsor of the race and having a lot of people there it’s a lot of pressure. Making the race is the first step. We were extremely happy when we made the race. And I felt we were competitive.

“We were inside the top 10, outside the top 10, back in the top 10 and then finished 13th. The cars from like fourth on back weren’t all that far apart from each other. All in all, I was pretty happy with the way it went. We don’t normally time in that well. To be decent in qualifying and be competitive in the heat and the feature with that level of competition, I was happy.”

The team spent the next four nights at Eldora Speedway, where qualifying struggles hampered Wilson each night.

“Our whole program is better when it’s slick whether it’s my driving, what we do with the car, our engines,” he said. “Basically three of those races rain effected in one way or another and the night that it didn’t was the night we showed the most promise, when we came from way back and almost transferred out of the C Main after passing 10 cars. Nothing went our way all week to us getting a flat tire on the way out on Saturday. We’re looking forward to moving on this weekend.”

Wilson plans on competing this Friday at Attica Raceway Park and Saturday at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio, with the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group. He has earned a pair of AFCS feature victories at Fremont Speedway this season.

Keen Shows Speed Early at Williams Grove, Comes Up Short Late

Mechanicsburg, PA – July 17, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Kyle Keen returned to Williams Grove Speedway Friday night July 15th in the Fine Line Auto Body / Keen Parts / Doubling Gap Ranch / Shetron Auction & Equipment, LLC. / Wicked Dog Grille / Heishman Racing Fuels / Wicked Cushion / DL Lehman Construction, LLC. / GearHead Coffee / Jeremy Zarfos Photography / Coyle’s Lawn Maintenance / One Nine Design, Kyle Keen Motorsports No.17k.

He and his team were looking to put a full night together and finally earn a finish at ‘The Grove’ that reflected how good they have been there this year. Their previous races at the legendary Mechanicsburg (PA) half-mile had started very strong but ended with Keen pit-side before the checkered flag fell.

July 9: Selinsgrove Speedway / Selinsgrove, PA

[18 cars, Heat 8th (3), A-main 16th (15)]

Keen and his team were also ready to put last weekend’s frustrating night at Selinsgrove Speedway behind them. Their night with the URC for the 360 National Open started with hot lap times near the top of the charts and a second row starting spot for their heat race. Unfortunately a minor issue caused the motor to stumble on the start of the heat race and the night went downhill from there, ending with a 16th place finish.

July 16: Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

[27 cars, Heat 2nd (2), A-main 15th (5)]

The line-up of the heat event will be determined by drivers season average money (lowest to Highest). A driver who misses a race at Williams Grove and competes in another 410/360/358 sprint car race, upon his/her return will be lined up at the rear of the heat race for 1 week. The feature will be lined up straight up from heat race finishes.

Three heat races were on the card for the 27 teams signed in. Per Williams Grove rules, the heat lineups were set by the drivers’ season average money (lowest to highest). The top six finishers from each would transfer directly to the feature event, and the lineup for the 20-lap finale would be straight up from the heat race finishes.

Kyle Keen started outside the front row for heat number two. The 8-lap qualifier provided an intense battle between Keen and the No.66 of veteran Doug Hammaker. Keen fought off the challenge and got a well-earned runner-up finish in the heat, not only putting himself in the 5th starting spot for the A-main, but gaining some valuable seat time and confidence in the process.

From his starting spot inside the third row in the feature, he was unable to capitalize on the opportunity near the front of the pack. Keen’s car just wasn’t in the ‘mood’ he needed it to be and he began to slide backwards through the running order soon after the green flag waived on the event. He fought the good fight but only came away with a 15th place finish to show for it.

“We just weren’t any good at the end of the night when we needed to be.“, a somewhat frustrated Keen said.

“We were decent in the heat race but I missed the setup big time in the feature. It wasn’t the finish we wanted of course, but we raced all 20 laps and put it in the trailer in one piece, so I guess it’s one step closer to the kind of night we know we’re capable of. Next time hopefully we can put the last piece of the puzzle in place.“

It is Keen’s first year in a 358 sprint car and it was only his fourth trip to Williams Grove, so there is still plenty of notes to be made and experience to be gained.

“This is a very humbling sport, but I think for being our first year in a 358 we are ahead of the curve. We’re having a lot of fun too. I just have to keep improving as a driver every week and understanding track states and conditions.“, Keen commented.

“Williams Grove has done an incredible job with the 358’s this year and the numbers show. I hope we can get some more races there next year, because it’s a badass racetrack!“

Up Next

Kyle Keen Motorsports will take next weekend off, then return to Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, July 29th.

Williamson Earns Top Five During ASCS National Tour Race at U.S. 36 Raceway

Inside Line Promotions – SWEET SPRINGS, Mo. (July 18, 2022) – Garet Williamson highlighted a busy weekend by capturing a fourth-place finish last Friday during a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event at U.S. 36 Raceway.

The Bryant Paver Motorsports pilot qualified third quickest in his group and placed third in a heat race before he hustled from 10th to fourth in the A Main at the high-banked oval near Osborn, Mo.

“The top was treacherous all the way around,” he said. “The goal was to get to the lead and go to the bottom to protect. We were right there, up to second, and I made one mistake and got into the wall, which got me off the track on the backstretch. We’ve been really fast at that track and it’s a place that has slipped away from us a couple of times.”

Williamson remains fourth in the ASCS National Tour championship standings, but he closed the gap to third place to one point and is now only 43 points out of the lead.

The team kicked off the weekend on Thursday at Bloomfield Speedway in Bloomfield, Iowa, during a Sprint Invaders show. A run from third to win a heat race advanced Williamson into the dash. He placed fourth to garner the outside second row starting spot in the main event.

“We were really good all night,” he said. “We were battling for the lead and I made a mistake. We were throwing sliders back and forth. I got over the cushion wrong and it tore up our car.”

Williamson was credited with a 19th-place result. He wrapped up the weekend on Sunday when he drove a midget for Dan Minear at Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex with the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League. Williamson placed fourth in a heat race and 15th in the feature.

“It’s fun to go out with no pressure and get to drive Dan’s car,” he said. “We got to learn and I feel like we get better every night we get to race together.”

The Sizzlin’ Summer Speedweek is on deck for Williamson and Bryant Paver Motorsports with the first weekend featuring races this Thursday at Tulsa Speedway in Tulsa, Okla.; Friday at Batesville Motor Speedway in Batesville, Ark.; and Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.

“Hopefully we have good tracks,” Williamson said. “I feel like we can go anywhere and be fast and be competitive. I’d like to pick up a win during Speedweek. I think that’s a good goal for us. We’ve been really fast. The bigger picture is being consistent all week. If we can do that we’ll put ourselves in position to win.”

QUICK RESULTS –

July 14 – Bloomfield Speedway in Bloomfield, Iowa – Heat race: 1 (3); Dash: 4 (2); Feature: 19 (4).

July 15 – U.S. 36 Raceway near Osborn, Mo. – Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 3 (2); Feature: 4 (10).

Price Excited for First Visit to Port Royal and Second Trip to Williams Grove This Week

Inside Line Promotions – ROSSBURG, Ohio (July 18, 2022) – Robbie Price is bound for Central Pennsylvania this week.

The Sides Motorsports driver will compete on Wednesday at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal and Friday and Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg during the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals.

“The Outlaws go to those tracks quite a bit so you have to be comfortable there,” he said. “I feel we’re getting a little better on the bigger tracks. I’m going into it open minded.”

This will be Price’s first time competing at Port Royal Speedway. He made one appearance at Williams Grove Speedway in 2018 during a 360ci winged sprint car race.

“Hopefully we can unload fast and I can make a good qualifying lap each night,” he said. “The biggest thing is to continue learning. I’ve been learning a lot throughout the last couple of months on the road with the Outlaws.”

Price raced five straight nights in Ohio last week as Attica Raceway Park in Attica hosted the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic on Tuesday before Eldora Speedway featured the Jokers Wild, the Historical Big One, the Knight Before the Kings Royal and the Kings Royal.

“We had a new car so we needed to get a balance going,” he said. “By the fourth night at Eldora I felt pretty comfortable. We’ll carry that into Four Crown when we go back to Eldora in September.”

Price wrapped up the busy week by transferring through the C Main and hustling from 24th to 14th in the B Main during the Kings Royal.

HK Classic Podium for Joel Myers Jr

PETERSEN MEDIA: Joel Myers Jr had a memorable trip to Watsonville, CA over the weekend. Following a ninth place run on Friday night, Joel Myers Jr mirrored his career best KWS/NARC finish as he ran third at the 12th Annual Howard Kaeding Classic.

“It was a really good weekend for our team, and it felt great to get back after it following a weekend off,” Joel Myers Jr said. “My guys worked hard, and we had a blast.”

Friday night kicked the HK Classic weekend off with the Taco Bravo 360’s taking center stage. Myers Jr went out in the middle of the qualifying session and timed the All About Fire Protection/Hi-Plains Building Division/Dirt Dudes Excavating backed No. 46jr in ninth fastest.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Myers Jr went toe to toe with some of the region’s best in his heat as he battled hard before coming away with a third-place finish. Though not able to earn a berth into the Dash, the Sebastopol, CA driver was locked into the feature event as he took the green flag from the 12th starting position.

On the slick Ocean Speedway surface, Myers Jr used the bottom as he clawed his way forward. Racing his way into fifth, Myer Jr’s powerplant would start to overheat. Backing down as the temp continued to rise, Myers Jr slipped back to ninth when the 30-lap affair came to an end.

Swapping power plants to the 410ci engine on Saturday morning, Saturday night saw Myers Jr get off to a great start as he timed in third quickest amongst the 38 cars checked into the pit area.

Gridding the field from the second row of his heat race, Myers Jr would hold his position as his finish mixed with his qualifying points put him solidly in the Sunnyvalley Bacon Powered Dash.

Though he took the green flag of the Dash from the pole, Myers Jr slipped back to finish fourth. Though unable to capitalize on the prime starting position in the Dash, Myers Jr still had a great position to open up the 30-lap feature event.

As the race came to life, Myers Jr wasted no time jumping into second as he chased after race leader, Justin Sanders.

Running in second, the leaders would quickly reach the back of the field as they began the lapping process. Racing through traffic, Myers Jr would take a couple shots at Sanders for the lead, but each move worked to no avail.

Continuing to run second, Blake Carrick would sneak under Myers Jr late in the race as he worked the bottom to perfection.

With Carrick glued to the bottom, ‘Jr’ could not get back around, as he capped the feature off with a third place finish and mirrored his career best finish with the traveling series.

“We were really good on Saturday night, and had a car that was good enough win, but we just couldn’t take full advantage of the opportunities we had,” Myers Jr said. “I am really happy with how the 46JR feels and am excited to give it another go this weekend.”

Joel Myers Jr Racing would like to thank All About Fire Protection, Hi-Plains Building Division, DirtDudes Excavating, PitStopUSA, System 1 Ignition, Weld, Smith Ti, Y2K Gaming, Shark Racing Engines, Lucas Oil, Vaider, L Delo Designs, Walker Performance Filtration, ShopRico.Com, Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Kaeding Performance, Triple X Race Co., and Ogio, for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 34, Wins-0, Top-5’s- 8, Top-10’s-14

ON TAP: Myers Jr is still undecided on where he will head this weekend.

Willie Croft Nets HK Classic Top-10

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to KWS/NARC action over the weekend, Willie Croft earned a Top-10 during the 12th Howard Kaeding Classic by way of his seventh place finish.

“We had a really good night going, but I just went a little too far on the adjustments before the feature event and we were a little too tight,” Willie Croft said. “It is a great event, and I wish we could have finished the night off like we started it.”

A total of 38 cars made the trip to Ocean Speedway to honor San Jose, CA legend, Howard Kaeding, and Croft opened the night up by earning quick time honors in qualifying time trials.

Taking the green flag from the second row of his heat race, Croft flexed his muscle aboard the Holey Smokes BBQ/Rudeen Development/Amerikote backed No. 29 as he worked his way to a second-place finish.

His heat race points coupled with his qualifying points were more than enough to make Croft eligible for the Dash he eventually found himself fourth on the starting grid of the six lap shootout.

Just as he did in the Dash, Croft was on a mission from the second row as he quickly moved into second on the running order. Chasing after Justin Sanders, Croft hung on to second which put him on the front row of the 30-lap Howard Kaeding Classic feature event.

When the green flag was displayed to the field, Croft slipped back to third as Joel Myers Jr overtook the second position as the field exited turn four. Though the Ocean Speedway surface was slick, Croft was on the tighter side and had the wrestle his machine around the bullring in the opening stanzas as he fell to fifth just prior to the halfway point of the ‘A’.

As the track continued to go away over the course of the feature, Croft was able to settle into the Top-10. Though he was still tight, the slicker conditions allowed him to maintain his position in seventh as the laps clicked down.

Able to hang on to his position in the Top-10, Croft brought his HK Classic to a close with a seventh-place finish.

“It is a little disappointing to finish back in seventh after starting up front, but we just missed it,” Croft said. “I have to thank my guys for their help, and everyone who makes this possible for us.”

Willie Croft Racing would like to thank Holey Smokes BBQ, Rudeen, Amerikote, SCI, Brown and Miller, FK Rod Ends, Factory Kahne, Schoenfeld, Team Simpson, Stilo, Smith Precision Products, Kaeding Performance, AL Drivelines, XYZ, Vortex Wings, DoTerra and GUTS for their support.

Faccinto Follows Placerville Win Up with Third Place Finish

PETERSEN MEDIA- Fresh off of his first win of the season with F&F Racing, Michael Faccinto followed that performance up with a third-place finish on Saturday night as he quickly turns his attention to this weekend’s Mark Forni Classic.

“Saturday night was another great night for the F&F Racing team at Placerville Speedway,” Michael Faccinto said. “Alan Bradway have really been clicking the last couple of weeks, and it has given me the confidence to go out and run hard.”

For the second consecutive week Faccinto set the standard in time trials as he earned ADCO Fast Time honors aboard the C&H Motor Parts/Lucas Oil/Geico Local Office No. x1 entry.

Lining up fourth in his heat race, the Hanford, CA driver would handle business as he jumped into third and solidified a transfer position into the 25-lap feature event.

Also earning a berth in the redraw due to his time trial efforts, Faccinto pulled the four, and put the F&F Racing entry in the second row on the starting grid of the feature event.

A slick surface that offered both a top and bottom was presented to the field for the ‘A’, and Faccinto would maintain fourth during the first half of the feature event.

Chasing after Dylan Bloomfield who ran in third just ahead of him, Faccinto would capitalize on a mistake from Andy Forsberg and power his way into third.

As the leaders got into traffic, a yellow would pause the action and give the leaders clear track for a short sprint to the finish. When the race came back to life, Faccinto closed in on second running Bloomfield and as he tried to get into the runner up position, as they encountered traffic again.

In the final laps, traffic would block the racing surface and it turned into a three-horse race to the finish as the top three battled with nowhere to go.

With the checkered flag in the air, Faccinto picked up his second consecutive podium finish of the year as he finished third and has ample momentum heading into this weekend’s Mark Forni Classic.

“It has been a blast working with these guys for the last few months, and it has been great getting this thing back up front for them,” he added. “We have a great understanding of the car and what it takes to get me comfortable and I think we have a great package heading into this weekend’s big race.”

F&F Racing would like to thank Bushey Financial Services, C&H Motor Parts, Lucas Oil, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, Pacific Highway Rentals, PitStopUSA, FVP, CRV Carbon Solutions, American River Overhead Door, All Pro Heads, Engler, and Don Ott Racing Engines for their support.

ON TAP: F&F Racing will be back in action on Saturday night in Placerville, CA.

Steven Tiner Gives C&M Motorsports First Top-5 of 2022 Season

PETERSEN MEDIA- Since opening Tiner Hirst Enterprises back in 2019, Steven Tiner has made spot starts over the last four years. Not missing a beat, Tiner flexed some muscle on Saturday night aboard the C&M Motorsports No. 7c, as he picked up a fifth-place finish at Placerville Speedway.

“Saturday night was one of those nights where I felt like I could have battled for a win with Cody and Mandi if I wasn’t so rusty,” Steven Tiner said. “I felt really good all night long, but a little rust and some time away hindered me in the seat. I had a blast, and am super thankful they gave me a shot.”

With 24 cars checked into Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, Tiner timed the C&M Motorsports No. 7c in 15th fastest in qualifying time trials. While it wasn’t the desired result, it was good enough to put Tiner on the front row of his heat race and give him a shot at earning a spot in the redraw.

Getting the jump in his heat race, Tiner was able to wire the field aboard the Legacy Specialties/Lund Construction/Anrak backed entry. Picking up the win, Tiner was successful at earning the redraw berth as the number seven put him in the fourth row of the 25-lap affair.

Jumping into sixth as the race came to life, Tiner found himself in a torrid battle with Justyn Cox for position in the Top five. Able to clear Cox at the race’s halfway point, Tiner closed in on fourth running Andy Forsberg as the leaders battled traffic as well as each other.

Closing in on Forsberg a couple of times, Tiner would try to inch by, but wouldn’t make anything stick. When the dust settled on the 25-lapper, Tiner capped off a great night with the C&M Motorsports bunch as he picked up a fifth place finish which marked the team’s first Top-Five off the season.

“Though it’s only my fifth start in the last three seasons, I always get the itch to race more after words but with responsibilities changing, I am happy to run when I get the chance,” Tiner added. “I am really proud of the result going up against the stout locals, and again, I am really thankful for the opportunity to run with Cody, Mandi, and their team.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Legacy Specialties Inc., Lund Construction, Anrak, Sam Rhodes, Alturas Tires, Swartz Diesel, PT Shocks, Creason Enterprises, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

ON TAP: C&M Motorsports will return to action this coming Saturday in Placerville, CA with Tony Gomes behind the wheel.

Dustin Loucks, Austin Detienne and Richard Brainiard completed the finishing order. Heat race two saw Adam Hall pick up the checkerd flag. Don Williams finished second, Parker Smith third, Justin Dick fourth and Josh Christian fifth.

Two Winged Sprint Car heat races were the action just prior to intermission. Heat one had Ben Brown and Curtis Evans leading the field to the green flag. Brown would assume the lead and not look back in claiming the victory. Curtis Evans would finish a strong second. Jack Wagner claimed third after a three lap battle switching places with fourth place finisher Slater Helt. In the second heat Samuel Wagner moved to the point in quick fashion only to see his lead erased by a caution at the completion of lap three. On the restart Taylor Walton made his way past Tyler Elliott and gave chase to the leader. Wagner would survive the challenges and take the win. Walton would cross in second, Tyler Elliott in third and Russell Potter in fourth.

The Super Stock Feature event was the first event following intermission. Joe Miller used a strong run on the top shelf to edge Brandon Dunham at the line to lead lap one. Miller would extend his lead over the next two laps before a caution for the stopped car of Dunham would bunch the field behind the leader. On the restart Dale Berry would make a bid in turn one to challenge Miller but found less traction than planned and allowed Miller to move out to a four car length advantage. A lap five caution once again restacked the field behind the leader. Berry would continue to dig on the bottom while Miller would keep momentum on the high line. A lap 12 caution would set up a three lap dash to the checkered. Door to door coming out of turn four on lap thirteen, Berry felt his car moving up the track against Miller’s car and in a move of sportsmanship checked up to keep from causing and incident. Miller was able to use the momentum to hole the advantage and claim the feature win. Jody Romig crossed the line second but was disqualified for not reporting to the tech area following the feature event. That would move Dale Berry into the runner up position, with Tyler Crocker fighting car issues to finish third with Dusty See finishing fourth and Chris Brockert crossing the stripe in fifth. Brandon Dunham would be credited with sixth place after suffering mechanical failure during the event.

B Mod Mania hit the track next and after a series of cautions which whittled the field down from thirteen starters to seven in short order, the race was finally able to get underway. Third time was the charm as the race was able to resume. Adam Hall moved out to the lead and quickly opened up a six car length lead over Tyler Potter. Potter would have his hands full as Parker Smith would immediately begin challenging for the number two spot and would take the position on lap five. The race would run green to checker this time with Hall staying in command opening up a straightaway lead as the laps clicked off. Following Hall under the checkered flag were Parker Smith in second, Tyler Potter in third but he was disqualified at technical inspection which would move Jacob Potter to third, Dustin Loucks in fourth and Jimmy Borgmann finshing fifth.

The final class to take the track on Sonic night at the races were the Winged Sprint Cars. With point leader Taylor Walton holding a slim two point lead over Jack Wagner at the beginning of the evening, each position would hold meaning. Ben Brown and Samuel Wagner led the charge to the green flag. Ben Brown would take command on the start with Samuel Wagner in tow. Taylor Walton would settle into third followed by Jack Wagner and Tyler Elliott. A lap 12 caution for the spinning car of Samuel Wagner would bring the field to the rear of Brown’s #7B. Brown would continue his hold on the top spot with Taylor Walton and Jack Wagner giving chase. A lap fifteen caution would slow the pace once again. On this restart you could almost cover the top three with a blanket. As the laps clicked by the track would become more and more technical for the drivers as they kept searching for the traction they needed. Walton would continually challenge the leader but Brown was able to keep enough momentum on the top shelf to maintain the advantage. A caution on the white flag lap would force a green, white, checker finish. Ben Brown would prevail over the attempts of Taylor Walton. At the checkers it was Brown, Walton, Jack Wagner in third, Tyler Elliott in fourth and Samuel Wagner completing the top five.

Next Sunday July 24 is the “Racing Back to School” backpack and school supply giveaway for all school age kids. You may still donate to this event by reaching out to Tyler Utz, Terry Ford, Tyler Blank, Tara Turpin, or Carol Wirts. The season championship for 2022 will be Sunday July 31, 2022.

Brad Bacher, Doug Erskine, Corinne Jenne, and Bob Munro will be honoured on Wall of Fame Night on Friday, July 22 as Ohsweken Speedway celebrates the past and looks forward to the future during the track’s 25th season of racing.

The familiar Erskine No. 64 has been a mainstay of the Mini Stock division at Ohsweken for more than two decades, first with Doug at the wheel and later with his sons driving.

ST. HELENA, Calif. (July 18, 2022) - It was a week to remember for Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing, not only qualifying and finishing 12th in the $175,000-to-win Kings Royal finale on Saturday night, but highlighting his week at The Big E with a pair of podium performances, one of which in the return of the Historical Big One, and the other in the Knight Before the Kings Royal. Impressive, to say the least, the St. Helena, California, native led laps in each of the Eldora Speedway blockbusters, commanding laps 19-21 in the $100,000-to-win Historical Big One, and laps one through nine in the $10,000-to-win Knight Before.

Abreu, driver of the Abreu Vineyards, Rowdy Energy, Curb Records, Stadelhofer Construction, Wiser Agency, Tony Toste Construction, Lucas Oil Products, ShopRico.com, Salty’s BBQ, No. 24 sprint car, drove forward from eighth to take command of the Historical Big One, scooting by Clauson Marshall Racing’s Tyler Courtney to take control before “Sunshine” returned the favor shortly thereafter. Eventual winner, Brent Marks, would also scoot by.

Starting from the pole position in the 25-lap Knight Before on Saturday afternoon, Abreu took off in a hurry, doing his best to run away in traffic before eventual winner, David Gravel, battled by with a huge slider on lap 10. Abreu attempted to drive back underneath the Big Game Motorsports enry, but Gravel’s momentum was too strong.

The Knight Before program was originally scheduled for Friday evening, but Mother Nature had other plans.

Abreu kicked-off his five-race trek through the Buckeye State with back-to-back passing clinics, first powering ahead from 21st to finish 14th in Attica Raceway Park’s Brad Doty Classic, then climbing six spots to finish sixth in Eldora’s Jokers Wild Kings Royal Week sendoff on Wednesday.

“It was a great week for our team. I’m proud of everyone…and a huge thanks to all of the fans for coming out and supporting these massive races. If it wasn’t for the fans, these races wouldn’t be possible, so we appreciate each and every one of you,” Abreu stated. “We’re going to take a few days to regroup before heading to Lake Ozark Speedway on Friday and Saturday. We’re excited to go.”

ON DECK: Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with an All Star Circuit of Champions doubleheader at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Missouri, on Friday and Saturday, July 22-23.

2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Sixth | 5226 points [164 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 18, 2022) - Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing put together a fantastic string of results during their five-race campaign through the Buckeye State, actually opening the week with a runner-up finish in Attica Raceway Park’s annual Brad Doty Classic on Tuesday, July 12, then capping the week with another runner-up result in Eldora Speedway’s highly sought after, $175,000-to-win Kings Royal on Saturday, July 16.

Missing a sixth Kings Royal crown by less than three seconds, Schatz’ march toward the front commenced from the inside of row four, hustling into second by lap 32 of 40 and nearly taking command. Unfortunately, eventual winner, Brent Marks, would slip off into the distance forcing the ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion to settle into second.

In just as impressive fashion, Schatz’ rally to second at Attica Raceway Park commenced from row five, eventually closing in on race leader, Kyle Larson, before opening an epic battle in traffic. Despite showing Larson his nose on multiple occasions, the NASCAR champion held strong. Schatz’ performance also earned the Fargo, North Dakota, native the evening’s Hard Charger Award for advancing the most positions.

In addition, Schatz was seventh in Eldora’s Jokers Wild, tenth in the $100,000-to-win Historical Big One, and eighth in the Knight Before the Kings Royal. “The strides we’ve made with the Ford have been incredible lately,” Schatz admitted. “To be competing at the end, where we’ve struggled lately, I think is a great sign for this team. We’ll keep building on this and hope to get another World of Outlaws win soon.”

ON DECK: Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with another invasion of Pennsylvania Posse Country, first setting aim on a midweek visit to Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday, July 20.

Brian Brown highlights successful Eldora campaign with top-ten in $175,000-to-win Kings Royal

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (July 18, 2022) - Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing put together a successful campaign in Eldora Speedway’s annual Kings Royal blockbuster, not only capping the four-day/four-race agenda with a podium and two other top-tens, but highlighting his appearance with a sixth-place outcome in the $175,000-to-win Kings Royal finale on Saturday, July 16. Impressive enough, Brown led a large portion of the 40-lap headliner, taking command on lap eight and maintaining charge until eventual winner, Brent Marks, snuck by on lap 22.

Brown, ace of the Casey’s, FVP, Andy's Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Rowdy Energy, Ditzfeld transfer, Champion Brands, MC Power, Weld Wheels, Housby, Maxim Chassis, J.D. Welding & Machine, Waldinger, Smiley’s Racing Products, No. 21 sprint car, earned his mentioned podium outcome in Eldora’s Kings Royal Week opener, finishing third in the $10,000-to-win Jokers Wild.

Perhaps Brown’s most impressive display occurred in Thursday’s $100,000-to-win Historical Big One, leading a massive charge from 19th to finish sixth at the line. “Blackjack” utilized the bottom of the speedway to make his gains, climbing his way to fourth before settling into sixth at the finish.

“I’m so proud of this Casey’s/FVP team…from our third place finish on Wednesday, to our huge charge in the Historical Big One, to getting to start fourth in the Kings Royal finale and leading laps…my guys busted their butts all weekend and I’m so very thankful and proud of them,” Brown said, a three-time Knoxville Raceway winner this season. “Leading the Kings Royal was great. We were just a bit too good too early. When Brent Marks and the others showed up, we got to sliding around too much which hurt our momentum. Regardless, it was an amazing effort all week and I’m very proud. Here’s to continuing our progress this weekend at Knoxville.”

TAFOYA CELEBRATES BIRTHDAY WITH BEST USAC NATIONAL RESULTS

(Chino, CA, July 14, 2022) Eddie Tafoya Jr’s decision to celebrate his 25th birthday 1,600 miles away from his Chino Hills, California home in South Dakota, proved to be a wise one. While competing in the USAC Nationals at Huset’s Speedway last weekend, he won his first-ever USAC National Sprint Car Series preliminary race and posted a series career-best 10th place in Saturday’s main event.
 

The prelim race win and 10th place finish only scratch the surface of his weekend showing in the “Mount Rushmore State.” Beginning with a third-place finish in his heat on Friday, Tafoya looked much more confident in the car while racing against the best traditional sprint car drivers in the nation.

Tafoya was getting his first in-person glimpse at the beautiful track located in the upper Midwest. The 2018 Perris Auto Speedway Young Guns champion got off to a good start on Friday when he turned in a lap of 12.721 on the fast 1/3 mile clay oval in qualifying. That was the fifth fastest in his group and the 12th fastest of the 26 cars on hand.

Tafoya started on the outside of the front row in his Friday night heat race and immediately jumped into the lead. The California-based driver led the first seven laps of his first ever race on the South Dakota track before ending up third in the 10-lapper. In the companion 30-lap main event, the friendly racer started 15th and moved forward two spots to place 13th at the finish.

The Saturday night program saw Tafoya qualify third quickest in his group and 14th overall with a time of 13.180. He again placed third in his heat race and started third in the main event. He ended up 10th, which was his best ever finish against the national series cars.

The big night of the three-day racing weekend was Sunday. In his 10-lap qualifier on the night, Tafoya started inside row three in fifth. From there he bobbed and weaved his way up to second and was about to snatch the top spot when the leader’s engine blew. For the restart with three laps to go, the visiting Southern California driver had two of USAC’s biggest stars on his tail. Unfazed and full of confidence, Tafoya pulled away from them and won the race by five car lengths.

“Oh yeah, for sure, every point helps,” Tafoya told a worldwide audience watching live on Flo Racing when asked if the pressure was on for the finale. “We are tied for tenth. So, we were just trying to better our starting spot. It felt pretty good to weave through the pack like that. The car has been getting better and better every night.”

Tafoya’s results over the first two nights and Sunday’s qualifier victory placed him third for the start of the 40-lap finale. To say the least, his performance in the main did not disappoint. After briefly poking his nose into third at the end of the first lap, the young driver settled into the fourth place position. He began to battle the third place driver on lap seven and four laps later he had not only made a pass for third in his beautiful #51T, but he had also raced into second.

Tafoya maintained the second place spot until slipping back to third on lap 17. As he came off turn four on the 18th circuit, he got a little wide and slapped his right rear tire off the crash wall by the start-finish line. The contact sent the car onto its left side wheels before the front end snapped around and his right front clipped the wall. Amazingly, and this was pointed out by a shocked announcer, Tafoya continued on! While he endured, it was obvious something was not right with the car. He stayed on the track for the duration and came home on the lead lap in 15th.

Many thought that he may have broken the bird cage. Tafoya was one of them, but he explained earlier this week that was not the case.

“Just bent the wheel real bad, so it was shaking (car vibration) me,” the affable driver said. “I didn’t know at the time if the ladder or anything else was broken, so I didn’t want to sail in on the top for another 20 laps. So, I just ran the bottom the best I could and rolled the car into the trailer. We have too many races to go to be wrecking stuff out there.”

Tafoya and the crew get some time off before continuing their attack on the USAC/CRA point standings on August 6th when the Santa Maria Raceway reopens its doors. Two weeks after that, he will return to his home track, Perris Auto Speedway, for the annual California racers Hall of Fame Night.

If you or your company would like to be a part of the Specialty Fastener team’s 2022 season effort, please contact Eddie Tafoya Jr. via phone at (909) 393-3999 or by e-mail at teamtafoya@aol.com. He will be happy to talk to you and lay out the team’s 2022 plans.

Wilmot Raceway

(Wilmot, Wis., Saturday, July 16, 2022)--Wilmot Raceway, Wisconsin's original home for sprint car racing, will host its 9th Annual Interstate Racing Association(IRA) Founders Night on Saturday, July 23.
The annual IRA recognition event will follow Wilmot's sixth cancellation of the 2022 season as the scheduled Family Night on July 16 was lost to weather. Track officials reluctantly called the program when heavy rains the day prior coupled with high humidity, a lack of sun and wind, prevented the drying of the saturated track and grounds despite the best efforts of the track crew.
Headlining the next program scheduled for the 1/3-mile clay oval located on the Kenosha County Fairgrounds will be the Bumper to Bumper IRA Winged 410 Outlaw Sprint Cars. On the card as well will be the Modifieds, Street Stocks and Bandit 4-Cylinder Stock Cars.
The special tribute recognizes the original founders of the IRA, the late RayToft, the late Junior Dodd and Whitey Harris. The trio headed up the formation of the IRA over 50 years ago. Wilmot Raceway, at the time known as the Kenosha County Speedway, served as the original home of the regional group and has remained as such for what has developed into a traveling regional series.
Dale Blaney of Ohio captured the first two Founders Night features in 2014 and 2015 when the event was co-sanctioned with the All Star Circuit of Champions.
Bill Balog of Hartford is the only three-time winner of the event having taken top honors in 2016, 2017 and 2020. Jake Blackhurst of Hanna City, IL won it in 2018. Jeremy Schultz of Beaver Dam in 2019,
Scott Nietzel of Beaver Dam is the defending winner having won in August, 2021.
The trophy sponsored by the Southeastern Wisconsin Racing Hall of Fame has the winner's name added and then is displayed at the Hall of Fame in Hartford.
Grandstands open at 5 p.m. with on track activity slated for about 5:45 including hot laps and qualifying with racing to follow. Grandstand admission is $25.00 for ages 12 and over, $5.00 ages 7-11, with ages 6 & under admitted free. Pit gates will open at 3:00 p.m. with pit passes being $30.00.
Advance tickets and further information is available at the official track website wilmotraceway.com. Updates are available at the trackside raceline 262-862-2090 or the official Wilmot Raceway Facebook Page. In case of an event cancellation, advance ticket purchases are automatically refunded to individual's bank accounts within four business days of the event.

Zach Newlin’s Williams Grove Return Ends Early
Mechanicsburg, PA – July 16, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Zach Newlin returned to the seat of the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway. It was their first race since May 20th after missing a couple shows due to non-racing related circumstances. They were back and looking to improve on the season-best 7th place finish they recorded that night.

July 15: Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

[27 cars, Heat 4th (7), A-main 22nd (10)]

Three heat races were on the card for the 27 teams signed in. The lineups were set by a pill draw and the top six finishers from each would transfer directly to the feature event, with the top four participating in a redraw to claim one of the top-12 starting spots in the 20-lap finale.

Newlin started deep in the field for the first heat race of the night. From his 7th starting spot, he steadily worked his way toward the front and managed to snag the final redraw spot on lap six. He held on to the spot to record a 4th place finish.

The redraw turned up a number ten for the Millerstown (PA) wheelman, putting him outside row five to start the 20-lap A-main. The opening lap didn’t go Newlin’s way and he slipped back to 13th by the time the first circuit was complete.

Newlin quickly found his groove and drove his way to the 10th position by the completion of lap three. A tight battle among several cars in the middle of the pack continued, and he found himself just outside the top ten looking in for a large portion of the race.

Zach Daddy was searching for a way to work himself back into the top ten when his night ended abruptly on lap 17. Newlin was officially credited with a 22nd place finish.

“We were too tight and then I had a really bad vibration develop as the race went on. That’s what put us out of the race. The car was better in the heat race. We just didn’t make the right adjustments for the feature.“, Newlin explained.

Up Next

The next outing for Newlin in the Mansberger Motorsports 358 sprint car will be Friday, July 29th at Williams Grove Speedway.

Zach’s next 410 sprint car race in the BK Motorsports No.77 is currently planned for Saturday, July 30th at Port Royal Speedway.

Henderson and Sandvig Motorsports Experience Heartbreak at Knoxville Raceway

Knoxville, IA – July 15, 2022

by Justin Snyder, Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Justin Henderson scored a disappointing 23rd-place finish at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday night after a mechanical issue ended what appeared to be a promising night behind the wheel of the Mike Sandvig Motorsports No 7 410 Sprint Car.

“Luckily I saved the car from getting into the wall, but overall, a tough night for our team,” said Henderson. “Sometimes I feel like we’d have no luck at all if not for bad luck. So overall it’s not much to write about.”

Henderson began the evening by timing in 5th quickest out of 32 cars in attendance with a fastest lap of 15.837 seconds during qualifying. He then advanced one position in a heat race to finish fourth and secured a spot in the night’s feature event.

“Qualifying well makes everything easier and it seems we turned the corner there,” said Henderson. “We were not great in the heat race and just managed to hold on to get her in the show, so we’re still working on that part of things.”

Following a fortunate re-draw, Henderson lined up from the 5th starting position for the feature. However, his night practically ended before it ever started when he came to a stop against the outside guardrail on lap two with a broken tie-rod bolt. As a result, he was credited with finishing in the 23rd position.

“We didn’t really start too well, so there’s not much we can take from that experience,” he said. “I’d have liked to maybe learn a few things from the changes we made, but that’s the way things go sometimes.”

While the finish was frustrating, Henderson was able to find encouragement in the early speed the car had on track.

“We turned the corner a little bit and we’re kind of trial and error until we get it right,” he said. “I feel like we’re getting back on track as a team, and we had some speed. So, we’ll just take the positives we can from it and just keep moving forward.”

Next up for the duo will be another Saturday of racing at Knoxville Raceway, followed by a return to Huset’s Speedway on Sunday.

Henderson currently sits on top of the point standings at Huset’s, where he holds a 12-point advantage in search of his second consecutive track championship at the Brandon, S.D Speedway.

“We’re leading the points at Huset’s and It’s always a good time when you enter as the points leader, ” said Henderson. “The crazy thing is that I don’t know that we have really scratched the surface in how good we are as a team this season yet.

“We’re really grinding away at this deal and we’re working hard to be ready come Nationals time. I feel like the best is yet to come for this team and I’m looking forward to clicking off a few wins hopefully in the near future.”

Chase McDermand Masters Valley Speedway with POWRi National & West Midget Leagues
Belleville, IL. (7/15/22) Chase McDermand would use a late-race restart at Valley Speedway Friday Night to narrowly notch his second career feature win with the Lucas Oil POWRi National & West Midget Leagues opening the Thunder in the Valley Weekend stretch in a nail-bitter at the finish line.

Early POWRi National Midget League competition with a stout field of entries would find Chase McDermand set the tone by clocking a 13.424-second lap and earning the quickest hot-lap time with Kyle Jones and McDermand each earning heat race victories.

Launching the field on the initial green flag launch would find high point qualifier Kyle Jones line up with Taylor Reimer opening on the outside of the front row. Using the inside-to-out momentum in the first corner, Jones would shoot out to the early racing advantage with Reimer and Chase McDermand filing in behind the front-runner as laps rapidly clicked away.

Intense action for the front of the field would find Chase McDermand mounting a lead-taking charge with Mitchell Davis and Gavan Boschele quickly working through traffic and into the front pack. Mitchell Davis would take the lead on the penultimate lap as caution flags would bunch the field for a dramatic final revolution around the speedway.

“For the first 20 or so laps, I thought I was clear, once Mitchell and Gavan got by me I moved to the top and held on after the late restart. I knew I had to slide the leader into turns one and two, they could have run me really wide so hats off to those two for racing me clean,” said a celebratory Chase McDermand. in the Grain Valley Missouri winner’s circle.

Restarting behind Davis on the final lap, Chase McDermand would not be denied in notching his second career National Midget victory with Gavan Boschele running the high-line into the runner-up placement over a fast-circling Karter Sarff that finished third.

Mounting a charge back to the front of the field would find Taylor Reimer finishing fourth place as Mitchell Davis would slip high-side in the final corner to round out the Lucas Oil POWRi National & West Midget Leagues top-five finishers at Valley Speedway for Night One of the Thunder in the Valley Weekend.

Xavier Doney Earns Career First POWRi WAR Victory at Valley Speedway

Belleville, IL. (7/15/22) Teenage sensation Xavier Doney can add feature winner to his young driving resume with the Lucas Oil POWR Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League at Valley Speedway for the Thunder in the Valley & Lawson Memorial Weekend Event.

Early on track accomplishments would witness Kory Schudy clock top-time with a 13.426-lap as heat racing action would find Joe B Miller, Xavier Doney, and Kory Schudy each earn a heat competition victory.

Soaring into the initial start would see Wesley Smith outrun high-point qualifier and pole-sitter Kory Schudy in the first pair of corners to claim the front of the field for the opening few laps with all competitors running closely behind.

Leading through early cautions would find Smith battling Schudy for several laps as tire conservation and attrition would come into play with Schudy earning the front of the field around the mid-way point.

Guarding the lead, Schudy would try to hold the front to no avail as Xavier Doney was strategic in his late-race persistence to overtake using a high-side hustle in turns three and four and hold on to notch the first career POWRi WAR feature win.

“This means a lot to win the memorial event for my car owner making it even more special to earn my first win within WAR in the process. Everyone drove a clean race, I knew I had to get up on the wheel and had a lot of fun in this race” said an exhilarated Xavier Doney in the Grain Valley Missouri Victory Lane.

Maintaining a solid showing all night would find Kory Schudy finish runner-up as Wyatt Burks placed third. Early leader Wesley Smith would finish fourth with a late-race surging Anthony Nicholson rounding out the top-five finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi WAR Sprint League feature event for Night One of the Thunder in the Valley & Lawson Memorial at Valley Speedway.

Dover Aiming to Race His No. 53 Sprint Car More Often This Season

Inside Line Promotions – GREENWOOD, Neb. (July 14, 2022) – Jack Dover is planning to compete more regularly in his No. 53 sprint car throughout the second half of the 2022 racing season.

Unfortunately, mechanical woes derailed the team last Friday at I-80 Speedway, where Dover placed fourth in a heat race before ending the night with a DNF in the main event.

“I went into the first corner and lost power steering,” he said. “It was one of the worst nights in racing I’ve had in a long time.

“With some of the tire issues and it being tough to get parts we haven’t been able to race our car as often as we’d like the last couple of months, but we have a busy summer and fall planned in the No. 53.”

Dover has one race on this weekend’s slate with a return to Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, S.D., on Sunday in the Chris and Rick Bowers’ owned No. 81.

“In our last race at Huset’s we made the final show for the big money during the Huset’s High Bank Nationals with the World of Outlaws,” Dover said. “Prior to that in our most recent weekly show we set quick time and we were having a good run in the heat race when we broke the axle. We repaired everything and made a good run up through the field in the feature so I’m definitely looking forward to getting back to Huset’s this weekend.”

Dover enters the event ranked sixth in the Huset’s Speedway championship standings. He is only six points behind a tie for fourth place.

QUICK RESULTS –

July 8 – I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. – Heat race: 4 (1); Feature: 18 (8).

SEASON STATS –

20 races, 1 win, 5 top fives, 9 top 10s, 14 top 15s, 16 top 20s

Hagar Returning to Riverside International Speedway This Saturday

Inside Line Promotions – WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (July 14, 2022) – Derek Hagar plans to venture to Riverside International Speedway this Saturday for the Big Creek Cannabis 360 Winged Sprint Summer Special.

It will mark his fifth 360ci winged sprint car start at the track this season. Hagar recorded two wins and a runner-up result during his first three visits prior to his most recent race there on July 2, when a pill draw got the team behind from the start of the night.

“Early in the night the track was really greasy and it wasn’t maneuverable,” he said. “You couldn’t hardly pass.”

Hagar advanced from sixth to fifth place during the USCS Series heat race, which ranked 13th in overall points. That lined him up on the inside of the seventh row for the main event.

“We freed up for the feature and went a little too far,” he said. “I couldn’t get the speed I needed. We were able to salvage a sixth-place run, but it wasn’t as good as it should have been.”

Hagar gained seven positions, which was tied for the third most positions gained during the 30-lap feature.

“We’ve made a couple of changes on the car since then because we are anticipating the track to be the same,” he said. “Hopefully we can get off to a stronger start and be in contention for another win by the end of the night.”

QUICK RESULTS –

July 2 – Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. – Heat race: 5 (6); Feature: 6 (13).

SEASON STATS –

18 races, 9 wins, 13 top fives, 16 top 10s, 16 top 15s, 17 top 20s

Dominic Scelzi Bound for Howard Kaeding Classic at Ocean Speedway This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions – FRESNO, Calif. (July 14, 2022) – Dominic Scelzi is heading to Ocean Speedway this weekend for a pair of nights during the 12th annual Howard Kaeding Classic.

The bullring in Watsonville, Calif., features 360ci winged sprint cars on Friday before a King of the West/NARC Fujitsu Series event on Saturday.

“I’ve been super consistent at the place and led a lot of laps there,” he said. “It feels like I’ve raced there more than anywhere else around here. This is a big race. I ran second at a non-wing portion years ago. I’ve run third in the 410 finale. I’ve had good runs at the event, but I haven’t been able to stand at the top of the podium. That’s what we want to accomplish this weekend. It’s a big race for big money and we’re excited to race there.”

Scelzi enters the Howard Kaeding Classic leading the KWS/NARC championship standings by 44 points thanks to four feature triumphs, 98 laps led, three quick times during qualifying, five heat race wins and three dash victories – all a series best.

“We’ve had an incredible season,” he said. “We have more NARC wins than we did at this time last year, but we’ve raced a lot less and won less races overall. We’ve been so consistent I’m not really upset we haven’t won as many times as we did last year. We’ve earned a podium every single NARC race except two. We’ve led laps at six or seven races. We’ve been extremely consistent.”

Scelzi won a pair of races at Ocean Speedway last season and he garnered a runner-up result during a KWS/NARC race there earlier this year.

“That track is a tough place because qualifying is extremely important,” he said. “It’s somewhat hard for me to qualify there for some reason. If we can get past qualifying we’re usually in for a good night. If we struggle it puts you behind the eight ball and that place can be narrow to pass on so we need to lay down good qualifying laps.”

SEASON STATS –

29 races, 5 wins, 17 top fives, 22 top 10s, 26 top 15s, 26 top 20s

Friday and Saturday at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif., for the Howard Kaeding Classic with the King of the West/NARC Fujitsu Series

Reinhardt Scores Two Top Tens on New York All Star Swing

Missouri’s Lake Ozark Speedway Up Next

Port Royal, PA – July 14, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Kyle Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team had enjoyed a two and a half week break from the grind on the road following the completion of the first 31 points races of the All Star Circuit of Champions season, which wrapped up with the grueling 10-day Ohio Speedweek in mid-June.

The break was a busy one, regrouping, restocking, making repairs and preparing for the final 26-race homestretch of the season.

July 6: Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup, Lernerville Speedway / Sarver, PA

[36 cars, Qualifying 7th Group C, Heat 5th (7), A-main 21st (19)]

The prestigious Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup at Lernerville Speedway in western Pennsylvania, offering a $25,000 payday to the winner, was the scene for the kickoff of the second half of the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions schedule.

Reinhardt’s night got off to a tough start when he clocked in at 7th quickest in Group C. Following qualifying for the 36 cars on hand, four 8-lap heats were slated, with the top five finishers from each advancing to the A-main.

The Neptune City, NJ native was able to start digging out of the early hole by moving forward from his 7th starting spot in the heat to finish 5th and capture the final transfer position.

Reinhardt wasn’t able to complete the recovery in the 30-lap feature event. After starting 19th, on lap six he suffered a right rear flat on his Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91. He was one of three drivers who experienced the same fate when debris on the speedway cut multiple tires.

Reinhardt rejoined the field but was unable to move forward and ultimately recorded a 21st place finish.

July 8: Ransomville Speedway / Ransomville, NY

[20 cars, Qualifying 13th, Heat 5th (5), A-main 7th (13)]

Teams used a day off to make the four hour trek north to Ransomville Speedway in NY, north of Buffalo. Twenty teams signed in to compete at the half-mile facility situated just twenty minutes from Niagara Falls.

Kyle Reinhardt was aiming to get his team’s night off to a stronger start. A late slot in the qualifying order resulted in the 13th quickest lap overall and a 5th place starting spot in the first of three 8-lap heat races.

Reinhardt held his ground but wasn’t able to advance in the heat race. His 5th place finish translated to a starting spot inside row seven in the 30-lap A-main. During the first dozen laps of the feature, once again he was unable to push forward in the running order.

Following a lap twelve caution, the car and the surface came to Reinhardt. On the restart he started his steady march forward, cracking the top ten at the halfway point. From there on, Reinhardt cleared a competitor every few laps, reaching 7th on the final lap to claim his eighth top ten of the season.

“We struggled with some brake issues at Lernerville Wednesday and again early tonight, but we finally resolved the problem and got better for the feature. We weren’t great tonight, but we never quit and were able to make a decent night out of it.”, Reinhardt commented.

July 9: Stateline Speedway / Busti, NY

[21 cars, Qualifying 15th, Heat 4th (5), A-main 10th (13)]

The final night of the brief NY swing for the All Stars brought 21 teams to the Pennsylvania border to race at the 1/3-mile Stateline Speedway in Busti, NY. It was a different night and a different track, but it was a similar outcome for the Capitol Renegade No.91 team.

Reinhardt recorded the 15th best lap overall in qualifying, then advanced one spot to finish 4th in his heat race. He went on to convert his 13th starting spot in the 30-lap main event to a 10th place finish, his second top-10 in as many days.

“We didn’t qualify well this weekend and that obviously is a big part of this deal. We need to get better early in the night and give ourselves a chance to make dashes. We will keep digging.“, Reinhardt said with both frustration and determination apparent in his voice.

“I want to thank Wayne and Capitol Renegade for everything they do for us, and of course Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants, J&J Auto Racing, Henry’s Wrecker, and everyone who supports us. It sounds cliche but we truly couldn’t do this without all of them. We really appreciate everything they do to help us.“

Up Next

Kyle and the Capitol Renegade team will be off this weekend, then will return to action on July 22nd and 23rd with the All Stars for a 2-day show at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Missouri.

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (July 11, 2022) – Christopher Bell can make history next month at Ohsweken Speedway. The NASCAR star has added his name to an already impressive line up of talent competing in NASCAR’s inaugural dirt race in Canada.

Bell will drive the Wight Motorsports-owned #64 entry in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series event with Leland Industries, IHL, and RGC Sports supporting his effort. Mark Dilley normally drives the car, but he is stepping aside to offer Bell the opportunity.

The 100-lap ‘Pinty’s 100’ is among the hottest tickets in Canadian motorsports this season. The Tuesday, August 16th, 2022, event at Ohsweken Speedway near Hamilton, Ontario, will feature Canada’s premier stock car racing series – the NASCAR Pinty’s Series – and it will also feature the lightning fast Knights of Thunder winged Sprint Cars.

Bell will drive a Sprint Car from the successful Hill’s Racing Team in hopes of capturing two checkered flags on August 16th, and he will have additional opportunity on Monday, August 15th in the 17th Running of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals; in one of the most impressive double-headers in Canadian dirt racing history fans can look forward to a pair of massive events.

“We want to treat our fans to an experience like never before,” said Ohsweken Speedway General Manager Clinton Geoffrey. “The Canadian Sprint Car Nationals will highlight Monday night’s event and the historic Pinty’s 100 will be the feature attraction Tuesday.”

Both nights will see the NASCAR Pinty’s Series, Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Cars, and the Action Sprint Tour along with additional attractions and entertainment. The list of notable racers signing on to compete continues to grow.

“Stewart Friesen is one of Canada’s greatest racing exports,” said Geoffrey. “We’re bringing him home to compete, and Ken Schrader has also secured a ride for the event.”

Schrader is a former NASCAR star who remains active in the racing world. He is among the most versatile and popular drivers to ever strap into any race machine.

Tickets and information are available online at both NPSonDirt.com and OhswekenSpeedway.com #OHS2022 Season The 25th season of weekly Friday Night Excitement at Ohsweken Speedway features four regular racing divisions, including the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars, Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks, and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks.

Big Sky 360 Nationals next for ASCS Frontier sprint cars
Andrew Kunas, Stagg Motor Sports PR

BILLINGS, Mont. - The Brodix Frontier Region of the American Sprint Car Series returns to action this Friday and Saturday with one of its biggest events of the season, the Big Sky 360 Nationals at Big Sky Speedway outside Billings, Montana.

Helena, Montana's Trever Kirkland has the series points lead and carries a 36-point advantage over Coaldale, Alberta's Kelly Miller going into this weekend's events at the 3/10-mile clay oval. Kirkland finished second after leading much of the way in the last ASCS Frontier Region event July 1st at Gallatin Speedway, bouncing back from a major crash he was in when the series visited Big Sky Speedway last month. Kirkland, who has one win this season coming at the season opener at Electric City Speedway, will look to have a better visit to Billings compared to the last one.

Tyler Driever of Meridian, Idaho is the defending winner of the Big Sky 360 Nationals, picking up his first career 360 sprint car victory that evening last year. Driever went on to briefly lead the points, pick up one more victory, and eventually finish second in the 2021 points standings, getting the series Rookie of the Year nod for his efforts. After a difficult start that saw multiple DNF's and missing a race with a blown motor, a pair of podium finishes has moved Driever back up to seventh in the points and feeling some momentum as he returns to the site of his first victory.

Laurel, Montana's Phil Dietz, who won the Friday preliminary race at last year's Big Sky 360 Nationals, won that last ASCS Frontier Region event July 1st at Gallatin Speedway after passing his friend Kirkland for the lead. The five-time sprint car champion was twice a winner at his home track last year and will also be looking for more success at Big Sky Speedway this weekend.

Friday's event is set to pay $1,200 while Saturday's Big Sky 360 Nationals finale will pay $1,500. The event, in its third running, was bumped forward a week this year so it would not conflict with the Summer Nationals at Skagit Speedway, allowing ASCS Frontier Region competitors the option to travel to that major west coast 360 sprint car event next weekend if they wish.

Tickets for each night at Big Sky Speedway are $20 for general admission, with seniors and veterans getting in for $15. As always at Big Sky Speedway, kids are 60" are in for free. Friday's program will see IMCA modifieds, IMCA sport compacts and WISSOTA street stocks also racing. Saturday's card will see the ASCS Frontier Region sprint cars joined by the WISSOTA street stocks, WISSOTA midwest modifieds and IMCA sport compacts. Big Sky Speedway is located several miles north of town up U.S. Hwy 87 towards Roundup.

Austin O’Neal Charges to 4th at I-80 Speedway Before Making Knoxville Debut

PETERSEN MEDIA: Austin O’Neal had a weekend to remember. After charging from 14th-4th at I-80 Speedway on Friday night, Saturday night the Missouri native made his debut at the most famed dirt track in the country, Knoxville Raceway.

“We were really confident on getting back to I-80 after running well there in our most recent visit,” Austin O’Neal said. “Unfortunately, a tough draw coupled with some misfortune in our Heat put us in a hole, but we rebounded extremely well in the feature.”

Lining the Marmon/Keystone/Weld Racing/River Valley Ag backed No. 11 entry up seventh in his heat race, O’Neal endured contact to his right front after picking up a few positions and it resulted in him fading back to seventh.

Finishing seventh in his heat, O’Neal had his work cut out for him in the feature event as he took the green flag from the seventh row. With the green flag in the air, O’Neal was able to get a great jump on a very fast surface after rain earlier in the week kept the track in good shape.

Getting into eighth in the opening five laps, the ensuing restart saw O’Neal make a daring move that allowed him to get into fourth. Once in fourth, O’Neal found himself in better air, but it was partly due to the top three breaking away.

Hitting his marks, O’Neal was able to reel in third running Cody Ledger, but the initial advantage was too much as O’Neal capped his hard charged off with a fourth place run from 14th.

Following an impressive showing at I-80, O’Neal made the trek to Knoxville, IA on Saturday where he made his long-awaited debut at the famed Knoxville Raceway.

At the new facility against a strong local contingent, O’Neal set the early goal of simply making the feature event, and after a hard-fought night he was able to check that goal off of his list.

With time trials not a part of his normal racing routine, qualifying at Knoxville would present an early hurdle as he timed in 27th fastest.

Missing the heat race inversion, O’Neal found himself at the back of a tough heat and was able to race to a seventh-place finish. Though he missed the direct transfer to the ‘A’, O’Neal made good laps and continued to grow comfortable as he headed to the semi with one final shot to transfer into the ‘A’.

Lining up seventh in the ‘B’, the field would jockey for position on the bottom of turns one and two, and O’Neal opted to make the middle work as he powered his way into second off the exit of turn two.

Running second for much of the race, a slight bobble would allow Knoxville regular, Clint Garner, to get by and it relegated him to a third-place finish, however it was still good enough to lock him into the ‘A’.

Taking the green flag from 23rd in his first ‘A’ at Knoxville Raceway, O’Neal was mired in traffic and dirty air on the mile speedway. Getting back to the middle, O’Neal was able to make headway as he did in the semi and raced up to 16th.

With the middle lane losing traction late in the race, O’Neal dipped back to the bottom and maintained 16th as the race drew to a close.

“It was great getting to Knoxville, and to finally race there and make a feature was really a dream come true,” O’Neal added. “I felt like we learned a ton as a team, and I can’t wait to get back and try again.”

Austin O’Neal Racing would like to thank Marmon/Keystone, Weld Racing, River Valley Ag, Kaw Valley Companies, RacinBoys, HMC Performance Coatings, Mel Hambelton Ford Racing, Champion Oil, Taffs Carpets, Rod End Supply, Clemons Home Team, Mettec Titanium, V&L Properties, Toby’s Coatings, NGK Spark Plugs, Maxim Racing, Capital Sign Co., Wesmar Racing Engines, and Schure Built Suspensions for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-8, Wins-0, Top 5’s-2, Top 10’s-4

ON TAP: O’Neal returns to action on Friday night at US 36 Raceway with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

Mallett Joining USCS Series at Boyds Speedway and East Alabama Motor Speedway This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - GREENBRIER, Ark. (July 13, 2022) - Jordon Mallett is back in action this week following nearly a month away from the track.

Mallett will join the USCS Series for races on Friday at Boyds Speedway in Ringgold, Ga., and Saturday at East Alabama Motor Speedway in Phenix City, Ala.

"I hope I didn't forget how to drive," he joked. "We've had our heads down here working. It all worked out for us with some rainouts, but we're looking forward to getting back at it this weekend."

Mallett hasn't been to either track since August 2017 when he placed third at Boyds Speedway and won the feature at East Alabama Motor Speedway.

"I don't remember much about Boyds," he said. "I think I've been there one time and that was back many years ago.

"I've been to East Alabama a couple of times. I won the Randy Helton Memorial race in 2017 when it was originally scheduled at that track. The biggest thing I remember is winning that race and the next year we won it again, but it was at a different track. I'm hoping we can have some similar luck this weekend."

Williamson Records Fourth-Place Run at Knoxville and Podium Performance at Lee County

Inside Line Promotions – DONNELLSON, Iowa (July 13, 2022) – Garet Williamson scored a pair of top fives last weekend in the state of Iowa.

Williamson timed in seventh quickest in the Bryant Paver Motorsports No. 24 sprint car on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville before he won a heat race from the fourth starting position.

“We qualified a little too late to be first or second, but in the heat race we did what we needed to do,” he said. “We just got hit by an unfavorable feature inversion.”

The feature inversion lined him up on the outside of the third row for the main event.

“The track was super heavy throughout the feature and was bottom dominant,” he said. “I got one guy on the start and then got under Kaleb Johnson somewhere early in the race. I feel like there wasn’t too much more we could do.”

Williamson’s fourth-place finish was his third top five of the season at ‘The Sprint Car Capital of the World.’

He then made his debut at Lee County Speedway on Sunday during a POWRi 410 Outlaw Sprint League event that had been postponed from late last week because of the weather. Williamson timed in seventh quickest and he won a heat race for the second straight night.

“I didn’t qualify well, but we did what we needed in the heat race again,” he said. “I think I was too conservative for a lot of the feature. I fell back to fifth early in the race. The top became really good and we were really good up there. I could keep my momentum built up. I think if I had ran harder from the start we could have done even better.”

Williamson rallied for a third-place result.

The team returns to action this Thursday at Bloomfield Speedway in Bloomfield, Iowa, with the Sprint Invaders. They will also compete on Friday at U.S. 36 Raceway near Osborn, Mo., with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour and Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa. Williamson will add a fourth straight race by piloting a midget for Dan Minear on Sunday at Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex in Sweet Springs, Mo., with the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League.

July 9 – Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa – Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 1 (4); Feature: 4 (6).

Goldesberry Ready for Two New Tracks This Weekend

Springfield, IL (July 13, 2022) – Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team got more lap time this past weekend at Knoxville Raceway in preparation for next months Knoxville Nationals. The weekend didn’t start at the racetrack, the team had a promotional appearance at the Hy-Vee Fast & Fresh in Waukee, IA.

With 32 cars on hand at Knoxville, Goldesberry would qualify 24th and make the heat race invert. Starting on the pole of the fourth heat race, Goldesberry would come out of turn 2 in third place. When the checkers flew, the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim would finish sixth. Goldesberry would be forced to run the B main where he would start sixth. The ten lap race would go non stop and Goldesberry would finish fifth. Due to a car scratching for the A main, Goldesberry would start the A main 24th. The Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim would get valuable laps and go on to finish 18th.

“We were a lot better this week at Knoxville than the previous week. We will take what we have learned the last few weeks and apply it when we are back in a few weeks for the Nationals.” Said Goldesberry. “I want to thank Hy-Vee Fast & Fresh for hosting our Rockstar team for a promotional appearance on Saturday. We had some fun interaction with their customers.”

This weekend the attention turns to two new racetracks. The Bumper to Bumper IRA will head to River Cities Speedway on Friday and Saturday for the Buffalo Wild Wings King of the Wings co-sanctioned with NOSA. On Sunday, the Rockstar Energy Drink team will head to Husets Speedway in Brandon, SD.

Starks Victorious During Mid-Season Championship Night at Skagit Speedway

Inside Line Promotions – ALGER, Wash. (July 13, 2022) – Trey Starks powered to his eighth triumph of the season last Saturday during Mid-Season Championship Night at Skagit Speedway.

Starks nearly swept the night by winning every time he hit the track as he garnered his fourth victory of the year at Skagit Speedway. He’s claimed three of the five 360ci winged sprint car features there this season.

“I felt really good,” he said. “We’ve been pretty good there this year and I’m happy to have some speed going into the biggest 360 race of the year they have in a couple of weeks.”

Starks set quick time during qualifying before advancing from fourth to third place in a heat race.

“We had a later draw in qualifying,” he said. “As the track worked a good groove in I ended up picking a different spot on the track and it worked really good as we went quick time. Then we gained a spot in the heat race. I knew we just needed to finish in the top five so after getting a spot at the start I rode around and felt out what the car needed.”

Starks won the dash and the main event from the pole position.

“We had another smooth race,” he said. “We got into traffic pretty heavy and we were able to maneuver through really well. We were able to put a good amount of distance between us and the field. We did have three or four restarts with five to 10 laps to go. We weren’t hitting the backstretch restarts that well. On the last one I think Jason (Solwold) might have been slightly ahead of me at the finish line, but we were able to be out front by turn one. I ran the top in open track, but through lappers we could pretty much go anywhere. On the restarts I think I was being stubborn. If I would have covered the bottom I think it would have solved our problems.”

Starks plans to take this weekend off before returning to Skagit Speedway on July 22-23 during the Bob’s Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals.

QUICK RESULTS –

July 9 – Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. – Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 3 (4); Dash: 1 (1); Feature: 1 (1).

Jordan Poirier Makes History at Orange County Fair Speedway
July 11, 2022
By Barbara Patterson
In the 39 year history of the Empire Super Sprints (ESS), Saturday night was their first ever appearance at the Orange County Fair Speedway. Local driver Brian Krummel, making his first start with ESS, drew the Pinnacle Pole. Starting on his outside was former modified stand out Jeff Trombley. At the green flag, Krummel took the lead with Trombley in tow. By lap two, Kyle Smith was up to 5th from his 9th starting spot. On lap three he moved into 3rd and passed Trombley on the next lap to take second. As the laps were ticking off, Krummel, Trombley and Smith started separating themselves from the rest of the field. The caution flew on lap 11 for Emily VanInwegen who had lost brakes. The restart produced a shake up in the top three with Smith taking the lead from his teammate Krummel. Meanwhile Jordan Poirier was making his way forward from his 7th starting spot. He moved into second on lap 12 and at the halfway mark, Poirier powered around on the outside to take the lead. The battle between Smith in the low groove and Poirier on the high side lasted several laps. With two to go, Poirier was able to distance himself from Smith. He crossed the finish line three seconds ahead of Smith and Krummel. Rounding out the top five were Danny Varin, driving for Brad Radivoy, and Shawn Donath from 10th. Poirier’s win will be in the record books as he is the first ESS driver to win at the “House of Power”. This second ESS win of the season for Poirier helped him to maintain the Lucas Oil Championship Tour points lead.

Jeff Halligan made the most of his final chance to dial in the Risser Motorsports / TheTreeCenter.com / Victory Auto of Lewistown / EMM Sales & Service / Jake’s Golf Carts / Pine Hill Trailers / Keystone Ag Spraying, No.45 at Port Royal Speedway prior to the upcoming World of Outlaws event.

Saturday night the Ephrata, PA wheelman powered to a convincing heat race win by five seconds over the second place car, then went on to come from the 6th starting spot in the A-main to grab the lead on a late restart and take the victory by 1.6 seconds over Mike Wagner.

All cars would qualify from the three 8-lap heat races, but only the top three finishers would be handicapped to start the feature event. Halligan drew the pole for the first heat, and it was never a contest. He drove away from the start and pulled away to a straightaway lead during the nonstop event.

The handicapping system, based on each driver’s points average in the most recent four races, placed Halligan outside row three for the night’s finale. In the early going of the 25-lap feature, it appeared his No.45 might not be quite as good as it had been earlier in the night.

Halligan initially settled into the 5th position and had to watch the battle in front of him for the top spots. By lap six he found his rhythm and moved into the 4th spot, still watching from the outside at the war being waged at the front among Derek Hauk, Dylan Cisney, and Ryan Timms.

As the race entered the final ten laps, Halligan cleared a lapped car, got clean air on his nose and set his sights on the top trio. With eight laps remaining, the caution lights flashed on for Tyler Walton and at the same time, Ryan Timms blew a right rear tire.

The field came to the green for the restart with Cisney leading Hauck, Halligan, Logan Wagner and Mike Wagner. Things got tight off turn two and down the backstretch as Halligan put a nose into 2nd using the low side, while Logan Wagner charged up the middle with Hauck up high.

Wagner and Hauck made contact, sending both spinning and ending the night for both drivers. The second attempt to restart with eight laps remaining came to the green with Cisney leading Halligan and Mike Wagner. Jeff had his sights set on the top spot and momentarily slid in front of the No.5 in turn four, but Cisney turned back under the No.45 and reclaimed the lead. Mike Wagner took advantage of the moment and stole 2nd away from Halligan entering turn one.

Halligan now sat several car lengths back in 3rd and the laps were winding down when misfortune struck for Cisney. A blown left rear tire sent the leader hard into the third turn fence, ending his night.

Jeff Halligan made the most of the second chance. On the ensuing restart, Wagner went low into turn one while Halligan ripped the top side and built momentum. As the pair reached turn three, Jeff dove low under Wagner’s No.55 and came off turn four with the lead. He never relinquished the lead and came home with his second victory of the season.

The win checked off a goal Halligan has had since he first strapped into a 410 sprint car three years ago: win multiple races in a season. As a result of the parity and high level of competition in Central Pennsylvania, it is a goal that is not easily attained.

“It was definitely a good night for us. I’m pretty happy. We’ve still got work to do here, but we’re in good shape.“, a smiling Halligan commented.

“We need to work on getting better at other places. We’ve struggled most nights at Williams Grove this year, so we want to get some laps in there. We had good runs at Lincoln during Speedweek, so we’ve made progress there, but we still have things to figure out to be consistently good there. We need to keep putting in the work if we’re going to take our deal to the next level and be able to compete with the big dogs.“
