PRESS RELEASES

PROMOTER SAD TO SEE PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY OVAL NATIONALS CANCELED

(Perris, CA, September 21, 2020) Last week, it was announced that the Glenn Howard Classic was canceled until 2021 at Perris Auto Speedway. Less than 24-hours later, the sprint car racing community received another gut punch when promoter Don Kazarian was forced to cancel the 25th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals Presented by All Coast Construction.

The silver anniversary of the nation’s most prestigious traditional sprint car race fell victim to the ongoing COVID crisis due to state and county mandates regarding large crowd gatherings. On the bright side, plans are already underway for next season including the Oval Nationals. Still, the pain and frustration run deep in the industry.

“Having to cancel the Oval Nationals just culminates the disappointment we have been dealing with all season long,” Kazarian said. “One could never dream a nightmare like this could ever happen. It affects everyone. We feel awful for the fans, drivers, sponsors, and officials. It is tough for our staff as well. As it was slated to be our 25th season, we had high hopes for it to be a great year. However, time and time again, we have had to make the sad announcement that more races have been canceled. Despite that, we are going to continue to push forward. Looking ahead, we are already making plans for 2021. We have some exciting announcements coming soon and 2021 is going to be a great year. Stay tuned throughout the winter for the details.”

“We urge everyone to do all they can to stay safe and healthy,” Kazarian continued. “We will get over this and when we do, it will be great to see everyone back and having fun at the track on Saturday nights.”

While there is no racing due to the mandates on crowds, The PAS remains open for private and group practice sessions as well as for television, movie, and commercial shoots. Anyone who is interested in renting the track for one of those sessions can send an e-mail to kazariandon@gmail.com.

Kerry Madsen Extends Top-10 Streak After Earning Three More in Central Pennsylvania

Inside Line Promotions - ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (Sept. 21, 2020) - Kerry Madsen scored a trio of top 10s in Central Pennsylvania last weekend.

The Killer Instinct Crossbows supported team has earned a top 10 in seven straight races and during 11 of the last 12 starts, giving Big Game Motorsports 34 top 10s this season.

"Our car is great," Madsen said. "I feel like if we keep hanging in there and doing what we're doing it's going to lead to some wins."

Madsen made the first of two visits to Lincoln Speedway last Wednesday. He qualified third quickest and finished second in a heat race. That lined the team up on the inside of the fifth row for the A Main.

"On Wednesday we were really good, but we had a mechanical issue in the heat and missed the feature redraw," he said. "We ran pretty good, but didn't advance as far as we should in the feature."

Madsen ended with an eighth-place showing.

The team headed to Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., on Friday for the first of two straight Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 races. Madsen qualified third quickest overall and placed second in his heat race to advance into a dash.

"We were having a good night and drew fourth in a dash," he said. "We finished there and I thought we were pretty good in the feature, but the track took rubber. I didn't get as much as I should have at the start before it laid rubber."

Madsen finished eighth for the second straight night.

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday at Lincoln Speedway for the Dirt Classic. Madsen qualified 19th quickest out of the 50-plus drivers. He then placed third and fifth, respectively, in twin heat races to garner enough points to lock into the 18th starting position in the main event.

"We didn't qualify as good as we should have and in the second round of heat races we needed to advance," he said. "We were really good in the A Main. I think we would have got a little further up the pecking order, but it laid rubber so that was that."

Madsen rallied from 18th to 10th, which earned him the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

"For me, it's really hard to make up any ground at Lincoln," he said. "I was really good early so I was pleased with that."

This is a busy week for the team with races on Tuesday and Wednesday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the Governors Reign with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1. The plan for this weekend is to tackle World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races on Friday at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio, and Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., for the Commonwealth Clash.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 16 - Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (1); Feature: 8 (9).

Sept. 18 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (2); Dash: 4 (4); Feature: 8 (7).

Sept. 19 - Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. - Qualifying: 19; Heat race #1: 3 (4); Heat race #2: 5 (5); Feature: 10 (18).

Starks Sets New Track Record at Skagit Speedway and Nets Hard Charger Award at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 21, 2020) - A new track record and a Hard Charger Award highlighted last weekend for Trey Starks.

The action began on Thursday at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash., where Starks piloted his family owned car during the 360ci winged sprint car season finale at the high-banked oval. His quick time in qualifying was a new track record for the division.

"We had a really good night going at Skagit, setting a track record and advancing from fourth to third place in our heat race," he said. "I rolled the No. 6 for the feature inversion so that started me in the third row for the main event.

"I was rolling really good. I was battling for the lead and got tagged from behind and spun around. That was a bummer. We went to the back with 12 laps to go and made it back to eighth. I felt like we had the fastest car. We just had a mishap and didn't end up getting it done. We've had a fast car the handful of times we've gone there this year. That's a good feeling with this little operation we have left."

Starks, who was up to second when he was spun out midway through the race, rallied from the rear of the field to finish eighth.

He then joined the Gobrecht Motorsports team at Huset's Speedway to run the two-day DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and the Midwest Power Series.

"We had a fast car both nights," he said. "On Friday we were quick in hot laps and ended up blowing a power steering line in qualifying when we pushed out so I didn't get the laps we needed. In the heat race we had more steering issues and I ended up dropping to fourth. We got it sorted out for the feature. We picked up a couple of cars before the track took rubber. It wasn't a bad night, but we didn't quite have the luck we needed."

Starks placed 12th in the A Main.

The weekend concluded on Saturday when nearly 50 drivers tackled the event.

"We qualified quick time in our group and had a really fast car," Starks said. "I didn't get a good start in the heat race and got slowed up a bit racing for fourth and fell to sixth. We had to come through the B Main. We had a really fast car and put down some good lap times. We ran a quicker time in the B Main than we did on our qualifying lap. Then in the feature we started 21st and picked our way through the field. We really came alive toward the end. We were really good on restarts and in open track. The last lap was the only lap I had all race in open air and we were really, really fast. It was a really fun track with a big, gnarly curb. It was a track you had to grit your teeth and run it as hard as you could. I like racing on those types of tracks."

That showed as Starks hustled from 21st to a fourth-place finish. It was his fifth top five of the season and earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 17 - Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 3 (4); Feature: 8 (5).

Sept. 18 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 4 (2); Feature: 12 (15).

Kaleb Johnson Charges from Last to Top-10 Finish at Power Series Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 21, 2020) - Kaleb Johnson charged from the 24th starting position to score a top-10 finish at Huset's Speedway last Saturday during the final night of the DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores.

"Our weekend went okay," said Johnson, who rallied back from a crash at the event the previous night. "There were a lot of good cars. Friday was disappointing. We wanted to make the A Main on the final night. We did that and then we passed a lot of cars, so we were pretty happy with the way we finished the weekend."

Johnson's evening didn't get off to the start he hoped for when he qualified 16th out of 24 cars in his group during the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and the Midwest Power Series event on Saturday.

"The car didn't feel right in hot laps and we didn't have a lot of time to change things before time trials," he said. "But the track was pretty greasy so I didn't really know what to change. I ended up spinning the tires most of the way around the track during qualifying."

Johnson's qualifying time slotted him in the eighth starting position in his heat race with the top five advancing to the A Main.

"The track was still pretty heavy for the heat race so we felt pretty good about moving forward a couple of spots to finish sixth," he said. "We missed the transfer for the A Main by one position, but it gave us a good starting spot for the B Main. We started and finished fourth in the B Main and that got us the last starting position in the A Main."

Johnson was able to advance early in the night's main event until a miscue reset his race.

"My primary concern was not getting lapped early in the race because I was starting 24th on a short track where the leader has a long head start," he said. "I was able to pass a few cars early, but then I missed the bottom around Lap 9 and spun out and had to restart at the back again. But after that I was able to make the top work and got by quite a few cars. It was a lot of fun and I was happy to finish 10th after restarting last."

Friday evening began better than Saturday for Johnson, but the upside was short-lived. After qualifying 10th quickest in his group, Johnson's night ended early on the first lap of his heat race.

"I was running the top in turns three and four and Tim Kaeding was on the bottom," he said. "I think he hit a slimy spot coming out of four and it pushed his car up the track. He left me enough room, but I got over the cushion and into the wall pretty hard. It broke the rear end and about every bolt-on part in that area of the car. I was fortunate that it didn't flip. We probably could've fixed it, but we didn't feel it was worth it to start last in the C Main."

Last weekend marked the end of the 2020 racing season for Johnson.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 18 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 10; Heat race: DNF (5); C Main: DNS (-).

Hill Shows Improvement Throughout Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 21, 2020) - Alex Hill made improvement throughout the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial hosted by Lucas Oil Speedway last weekend.

The Hill's Racing Team driver fell just a few positions short of making the A Main on Saturday night after three nights of stout competition with a nearly 80-car field at the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event.

"We didn't start off very well on the first night," she said. "Our notes from last year didn't seem to work well this year. The track was different this year with a curb around the bottom. That took some getting used to and I eventually got comfortable with it by the final night."

Hill moved forward in all three of her races on Saturday. She went from eighth to sixth in her qualifier and fifth to fourth in a B Main. In the Last Chance Qualifier - her final opportunity to make the event's biggest race - she raced from 12th to ninth, falling three spots shy of the final transfer position.

"We kept improving, but we just started too far back to get a transfer spot to the A Main," she said.

Hill had a challenging evening on the opening night last Thursday when she finished ninth in her heat race and eighth in her qualifier. She advanced from 16th to 10th in the B Main.

Friday began well for her with a heat race victory.

"I started second and got a really good start," she said. "I was able to get the lead right away and hold it to the finish so that was nice."

Hill followed up her heat race win with a ninth-place run in her qualifier and a sixth-place finish in the B Main after starting eighth.

Hill will take this week off before competing in the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., Oct. 2-3.

Amantea Picks Up Third Win of the Season at Hamlin Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - HAMLIN, Pa. (Sept. 21, 2020) - Joey Amantea recorded his third victory of the season at Hamlin Speedway last Saturday to cap the week.

Amantea also finished 20th on Wednesday at Shellhammer Dirt Track in Shoemakersville, Pa., where he gained laps prior to a pair of races this week.

"It was the best of both world's this week as we got another win, but also wrecked a car," he said. "The good news is we had a chance to win on both nights and it just continues what's been a great season for us."

Amantea made his first trip in more than a year to Shellhammer Dirt Track, kicking off the action last Wednesday night by passing four cars to finish third in a heat race and secure the ninth starting spot in the A Main. He advanced as high as third during the feature, but late-race contact while battling for second sent him spinning into the infield and ended his night early. He was credited with finishing 20th.

"We were really fast right out the gate and with a couple more laps we likely win our heat race," he said. "We were up to third by Lap 18 in the feature and we had a chance at second and got chopped on a late restart. On one hand it is nice to know we had speed right off the bat, but it's disappointing to have nothing to show for it."

Amantea won't have to dwell on the missed opportunity for long as he'll have two chances at redemption this week. He's set to visit the track this Wednesday night before tackling the $1,000-to-win Shellhammer Slam IV on Sunday.

Amantea finished off last week on Saturday night at Hamlin Speedway, where he won a heat race from the pole position. The feature redraw started him on the inside of the second row for the feature and he quickly moved into second. Amantea used the outside of a double-file restart to take the lead and he went unchallenged in the closing laps for the victory.

The triumph made him a perfect 3-for-3 in races at Hamlin Speedway this season and is a new personal high for wins in a season.

"We've been great at Hamlin all season so I expected to be in contention right away," he said. "To go undefeated in starts there this year is pretty special and it's a great way to end the year there."

Amantea is set for four nights of racing this week. Along with the two nights at Shellhammer Dirt Track, Amantea will compete in wingless micro sprint competition at Linda's Speedway in Jonestown, Pa., on Friday. Saturday will mark a return behind the wheel of a 360ci sprint car with the USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Car Series at Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J.

While this won't be his first start behind the wheel of a 360ci sprint car, this week will mark his first time behind the wheel of one carrying his familiar No. 88j. He's hoping the change of numbers will serve as a confidence booster as he prepares for the future.

"We're going to change the number and just kind of get that sense of familiarity on the sprint car side of things," he said. "While we're focused on winning as much as possible in the micro sprint now, this is kind of the first step toward looking to the future and I'm excited to see where this path leads us."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 16 - Shellhammer Dirt Track in Shoemakersville, Pa. - Heat race: 3 (7); Feature: 20 (9).

Sept. 19 - Hamlin Speedway in Hamlin, Pa. - Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 1 (3).

MSA to cap 2020 campaign with
Dodge County, Plymouth double dip

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 21, 2020 – The Midwest Sprint Car Association will close out by far the most unusual season in its 22-season history with a doubleheader weekend of action, culminating with the crowning of the 2020 champion, Friday, Sept. 25 and Saturday, Sept. 26.

The MSA championship weekend is set to kick off with the Fuzzy Fassbender-Rick Schmidt Memorial event at the Dodge County Fairgrounds “horsepower half mile” in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, Sept. 25 and conclude with the 2020 season curtain closer as part of the Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 26.

Three-time MSA champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh heads into the final two races of the season with a commanding 85-point lead over Travis Arenz of Sheboygan and an 88-point cushion over five-time MSA champ Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee.

Former Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car champion Justin Miller of Plymouth stands fourth in the MSA points race 133 points out of the lead, while 2005 MSA champ Lance Fassbender of Burnett sits fifth 143 points behind McMullen.

Those three drivers have combined to win 12 of the MSA’s 15 A-main events during the 2020 campaign with McMullen leading the way with six main event wins, including three victories at The Plymouth Dirt Track to go along with single wins at Gravity Park Speedway in Chilton, Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam and the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam.

Arenz has tallied four A-main wins, including three at the Plymouth Dirt Track and one at Beaver Dam Raceway, and Davis owns a pair of main event victories this season, including one at The Plymouth Dirt Track and one at Outagamie Speedway Powered by EWSC Racing in Seymour.

McMullen, who now stands third on the all-time MSA A-main win list with 29 main event triumphs, has enjoyed one of the best seasons of his stellar 360 Sprint Car career during the COVID-19-shortened 2020 campaign.

The 11th-year driver, third-generation driver will be looking to stay hot after sweeping an MSA twinbill at the Dodge County Fairgrounds on Sept. 4 and The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, Sept. 5.

“I’d say there was a bit more urgency to start the season with good results considering the late start and threat of racing being shut down at any point,” McMullen said. “I normally struggle early in the year and come on strong at the end. I’m not sure why that is. This year we came out really strong and have been able to continue it throughout the season. Maybe it was a different mindset, hitting the set-ups better, just catching better luck to start the year, or a combination of those things. We’ve never won more than five features in a regular season. To have won six features at the different tracks we’ve run at in a short season like this has far and away exceeded our expectations.”

“With the final weekend coming up, I just need to stay relaxed and have some fun,” McMullen said. “Whatever happens, happens. Hopefully, we can keep riding the hot streak we’ve been on and pick up another win or two.”

MSA championship weekend will also see Austin Hartmann of Plymouth officially wrap up the 2020 MSA Rookie of the Year Award.

“With no previous racing experience coming into the year, my goal was to make it through the year and make consistent laps,” Hartmann said. “Winning the MSA Rookie of the Year Award really means a lot. We are looking forward to closing out the season on a strong note at Dodge County and Plymouth during championship weekend.”

Other top contenders expected to compete during MSA championship weekend include 2018 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 2011 MSA champion Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove, 2014 MSA Masters Series champion Paul Pokorski of West Bend, second-year competitor Justin Erickson of Plymouth, Will Gerrits of Waupun, Scott Conger of Eagle, Bill Taylor of Cedar Grove, Tim Haddy of Waupun and Tony Wondra of Campbellsport.

Pokorski, Schmidt and Adam Miller of Plymouth have each collected one victory in MSA A-main action during the 2020 season.

Also on the all-Sprint Car card at the Dodge County Fairgrounds on Friday, Sept. 25 will be the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series, along with the AutoMeter Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Cars.

Pit gates open at 3 p.m., spectator gates are set to open at 5 p.m. with warm ups at 6 p.m. and hot laps, qualifying and racing to follow.

Spectator admission is $25 for adults with kids 6-12 $5 and children 5 and under admitted free. Pit admission is $30.

The Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships event on Saturday, Sept. 26 at The Plymouth Dirt Track will feature the final points races of the season for the IRA Sprint Cars, Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Cars, MSA Sprint Cars, PDTR 360 Sprint Cars and IRA Lightning Sprints with 2020 champions crowned in all five divisions.

Pit gates open at 1 p.m. with spectator gates opening at 4 p.m., followed by hot laps at 4:45 p.m. with qualifying and racing to follow.

Spectator admission is $25 for adults, $5 for kids 6-12 and children five and under are admitted free. Pit admission is $30 or $25 with appropriate membership.

For those unable to attend in person, the action on both nights will be broadcast live at floracing.com

Following delay after delay to start the season due to COVID-19, it seemed for a while that the season would not happen. But fortunately, the season got underway and now it is time for the biggest race of the season.

Saturday the AmeriFlex / OCRS Challenge V takes a green flag at Salina Highbanks Speedway with over $27,000 in prize money on the line. The winner of the 25-lap feature will take home $3,000. Just starting the race will earn you $1,000.

Four drivers have visited the AmeriFlex Challenge winners circle. Sean McClelland won the first event in 2016, Mickey Walker won in 2017 followed by Mike Goodman in 2018 and Alex Sewell last year.

Except for the added money, it is just another points race for the AmeriFlex / OCRS and the format remains the same - drivers will draw for heat race starting positions with passing points determining feature starting positions.

Also at stake is the AmeriFlex / OCRS points championship. Zach Chappell comes into Saturday night leading the points chase by a slim 21 point margin over Terry Easum. Chappell will have to keep Easum behind him then do the same on October 16 in the season finale at Caney Valley Speedway to win a second championship. Joe Bob Lee of Cache sits in third 39 points behind Easum. Two-time winner Casey Wills is just 12 points behind Lee. Easum, Lee and Wills all have a chance to unseat Chappell.

Zearfoss highlights four-race sweep with top-ten in Lincoln’s Dirt Classic

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (September 21, 2020) – The “Jonestown Jet” Brock Zearfoss translated four Central Pennsylvania starts into a pair of top-ten finishes during the recent weekend, highlighting all appearances with a sixth-place performance during Lincoln Speedway’s Dirt Classic 7 featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions on Saturday, September 19.

Lining-up seventh on the 40-lap, $20,000-to-win grid, Zearfoss was a top-ten threat the entire distance, battling ahead and contending for a top-five before settling for one spot out. The end result equaled Zearfoss’ 14th top-ten finish of the season against Tony Stewart’s All Stars, bettering most of the 53-car field in attendance.

Two nights prior at BAPS Motor Speedway, Zearfoss finished eighth, maintaining a spot inside the top-ten after starting sixth on the Kevin Gobrecht Classic lineup.

Zearfoss was well on his way to a top-ten finish during Williams Grove Speedway’s Jack Gunn Memorial on Friday, September 18, but contact with the outside retaining wall on the final circuit forced the Jonestown, Pennsylvania-native to stop just shy of the start/finish line; he was scored 21st.

“It was a pretty good weekend, but we’re always striving to do better. The speed is there and we’ve proven that over and over again. We have to tweak on some things and we’ll be right there,” Zearfoss said, driver of the Brock Zearfoss Racing, Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., BAPS Auto Paints & Supply, Meckley’s Limestone Products, Berkebile Oil Company, Klick Lewis Cars, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, X-1 Race Cars, No. 3Z sprint car who finished 11th during Lincoln’s Weldon Sterner Memorial to open his four-race week on Wednesday. “I can’t thank my team enough for all of their hard work. We’ve been racing close to home, but a four-race schedule like that is never easy, no matter where you are at. We have another big week ahead, so we’ll do what we can to get our car to the front.”

Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing will continue their 2020 campaign with another four-race sweep, this time invading the highbanks of Eldora Speedway for the highly-anticipated Governors Reign on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 22-23, followed by back-to-back starts at Williams Grove Speedway and Selinsgrove Speedway on Friday and Saturday, September 25-26. Selinsgrove Speedway’s National Open will award $20,000.

The first-ever Governors Reign at The Big E will kick-off with a $10,000-to-win preliminary on Tuesday, capped with the $52,000-to-win finale the following evening.

We’ll put these races behind us and put our attention on what’s ahead,” Danny Dietrich said, a 12-time winner thus far in 2020. “I can’t thank Gary Kauffman and this entire team enough for their hard work and dedication.

Westfall, driver of the Ray Marshall-owned/Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car, earned his way into the Hockett/McMillin main event by finishing second during his respective feature qualifier. The 2019 Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) champion kicked-off Hockett/McMillin Memorial weekend with sixth and 11th-place finishes during preliminary competition, enough to put Westfall ninth in the event standings leading into Saturday’s finale.

We were consistent all weekend,” Matt Westfall said, a two-time feature winner thus far in 2020. “I can’t thank Ray Marshall enough for the opportunity to drive his cars. There were a lot of great teams at Lucas Oil Speedway, but we were fast right out of the gate. I owe that all to this team’s work effort and Ray’s passion for sprint car racing.”

“I’m proud of Matt (Westfall) and this entire team,” Ray Marshall added. “It has been a fun and successful season. We’re not done yet, so I’m sure more success is ahead.”

The Greatest Show On Dirt visited Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Oklahoma, on Friday, and the historic Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, on Saturday.

With all results considered, Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Advance Professional/Carquest Auto Parts/Technet Professional Automotive Service/Ford Performance/Mobil 1/Sage Fruit/Curb Records/Absolute Automation & Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Digital Ally/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, remains third in the World of Outlaws driver chase, now with 32 top-ten appearances in 42 starts.

Tanner Carrick Clean Sweeps Saturday Night to Claim First Career Placerville Speedway Victory

PETERSEN MEDIA: Tanner Carrick would prove to be the dominant car on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway as he would clean sweep the night of action and claim his first career win at the speedway.

“I have been close on so many occasions at Placerville Speedway, it feels great to finally get the monkey off our back,” Tanner Carrick said. “With (younger brother) Blake able to get one here back in July, it is cool to back it up with a win ourself and a little more special with him running second.”

Saturday night, Carrick quickly established himself as one of the favorites as he bested the 29-car field in time trials and earned quick time honors aboard the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83T machine.

From the second row of his heat race, the Lincoln, CA driver would quickly jump into second as he chased after early leader, Michael Ing. Searching high and low during the eight-lap event, Carrick made a big move exiting turn four coming to the white flag that saw him take the top spot, and eventually pick up the heat race win.

Pulling the six pill in the redraw, Carrick would take the green flag from the outside of the third row for the 25-lap feature event. A false start, then a red flag stoppage would hinder the start of the race, but when things finally got underway, Carrick would settle into third.

While the opening laps were mired by stoppages, Carrick would move into second on the third lap, and would then get a run on Justin Henry on the sixth as he took the lead out of turn four and officially led lap seven.

Out in front, Carrick was flawless in traffic as he had his machine glued to the inside lane at Placerville Speedway. Needing to get to the cushion at times as he lapped cars, Carrick showed his car was good enough to go anywhere as he soared his first career win at Placerville Speedway and capped a clean sweep.

Also in action on Friday night at Ocean Speedway, Carrick would time in 11th fastest in time trials before racing his way to a heat race win.

Finishing eighth in the Dash, Carrick would line up in the fourth row for the 30-lap feature event on a surface that had a ton of moisture left in it which created an extremely fast paced race.

Running in the eighth spot as passing would prove to be extremely tough, Carrick’s night would come to an early end on the 15th lap as a shock issue would force him back to his trailer.

“We were really fast both nights, but just had bad luck on Friday night,’ Carrick added. “I really have to thank Clark Riolo, my family, and all of our sponsors that work so hard and make this all possible for us.”

Tanner Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, Interstate Oil, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Emerald, Timberworks Construction, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 25, Wins: 3, Top 5’s: 13, Top 10’s: 19

ON TAP: Carrick will head back to Indiana for two USAC National Midget events this weekend as he will be in action in Gas City, IN on Friday night, and in Kokomo, IN on Saturday night.

Andy Forsberg Hard Charges to Fourth Place Finish on Saturday Night

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to the seat of the F&F Racing No. x1 machine on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway for the first time since July 25th, Andy Forsberg would rally from a slow start and finish fourth.

“We got off to a really slow start, but we were able to dig ourselves out of a hole and methodically work our way to the Top-5,” Andy Forsberg said. “Our engine didn’t run in time trials and we ended up 21st quick out of 29 cars, so not exactly where we wanted to be to start the night.”

With the Placerville Speedway turning the lights back on for the first time since July’s Forni Classic, Forsberg and F&F Racing made their first start together in nearly two months. Getting off to a bit of a sluggish start, Forsberg would time the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/Huggins Cams backed No. x1 machine in 21st fastest in time trials before a sixth-place finish in his heat.

Missing out on the direct transfer into the feature, the Auburn, CA driver was relegated to the night’s “B” main event where he would charge from his fourth starting position and garner a second-place finish.

Safely transferring into the feature event, ‘Mr. Excitement’ would roll off the starting grid from the 18th starting position.

From the back of the pack, Forsberg would show patience early as a couple of wrecks in front of him would allow him to pick up a couple of easy positions. Once the race settled into a groove, Forsberg would come to life as he attacked the cushion that had built up on both ends of the speedway.

Working his way forward, Forsberg would crack the Top-Five late in the race as he chased after the Carrick brothers, and JJ Hickle who ran ahead of him.

Unable to garner a spot on the podium, Forsberg would cap the night with a strong charge through the field as he took the checkered flag in fourth.

“It was the first race we ran since we lost Carol Bradway, so we had the entire family here and hopefully we made them proud,” Forsberg said. “We were able to honor Carol, and Roy Lee Van Connett, so it was an honor to run a memorial lap for both of them.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, Huggins Cams, PitStopUSAC, Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2020.

ON TAP: F&F Racing will be back in action at Placerville Speedway on October 3rd.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-10, Wins-1, Top 5’s-5, Top 10’s-8.

Mid-Race Troubles End Andy Gregg’s Night Early at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting back to action after a long hiatus on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, Andy Gregg would pack his right-rear full of red clay just before the race’s halfway point and it would bring his night to an early end.

“It has been such an odd year, so to have our night end for something like that is sort of par for the course,” Andy Gregg said. “Thanks to all of my guys for their hard work all night, it is kind of a bummer to end our season with an issue like that.”

Checking in at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, Gregg kicked his night off by timing the GUTS/LAL Motorsports/Crane Inspection Agency backed No. 16x in 10th fastest amongst the 29 drivers that were checked into the pit area.”

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Gregg would battle with Bubba DeCaires for the top spot, as a win would be critical in earning a spot in the Top-Eight redraw. Finishing second to DeCaires, Gregg would miss out on the redraw, but was safely locked into the 25-lap feature event.

Lining up 13th in the feature event, Gregg would be forced to take evasive action on the first attempted start as Joel Myers, Jr flipped wildly in front of him. Able to climb the hillside in turns three and four to avoid early disaster, Gregg would be able to keep his night alive and restart the race.

When the race came to life, Gregg would find himself in the ninth spot as searched high and low around the Placerville Speedway and jockeyed for position. A slew of stoppages early in the feature would keep it from getting into a flow, though Gregg kept his mount inside the Top-10.

Getting up to eight following a lap five restart, Gregg would start to pound the thick Placerville Speedway cushion as he worked his way forward. On the eighth lap, Gregg would get into the cushion a little too hard and it would result in him caving his right rear wheel cover in and packing his wheel full of Placerville Speedway clay.

Hanging on for a couple of laps, the vibration would worsen, and Gregg would pull his machine off the racing surface and bring his night to an end.

“It looks like that will bring our season to an end,” Andy Gregg said. “I want

Andy would like to thank GUTS, LAL Motorsports, Crane Inspection Agency, Meyers and Son Drywall, Sierra Ice, CTL Forest Management, Nail It Roofing, ARP Enterprises, Ervin Sales, Triple X, Wilwood, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, K&N, King Racing Products, BR Motorsports, Amerikote, Pony Express Service, Eagle Grit, and MF Inc. for their support in 2020.

ON TAP: Gregg is unsure when his next race will be at this time.

Gio Scelzi Nets Two PA Podiums

PETERSEN MEDIA- Another busy week in Pennsylvania for Gio Scelzi was highlighted by a second place run with the All Stars at Williams Grove on Friday night, as well as a Thursday night third place finish at BAPS Motor Speedway.

“It was a really solid week for us out in PA,” Gio Scelzi said. “We had a chance to really take some big swings at our car, and we continued to make gains which is huge for us as we continue to gel.”

The busy stretch kicked off on Wednesday night at Lincoln Speedway where Scelzi would pick up a 10th place finish in the feature event aboard the Logan Contractors Supply, Inc./Aspen Aire/Royal Flooring backed No. 18 machine.

Thursday night the scene shifted to BAPS Motor Speedway where the Fresno, CA driver would have a very strong night that saw him kick things off by timing in third fastest in time trials.

Running second in his heat, Scelzi would find himself on the outside of the second row to start the feature event on a surface that was extremely slick.

Continuing to try and get dialed in on slick surfaces, Scelzi and the Tyler Swank led crew would make some big changes to their car before the feature event and they would pay dividends. Working inside the Top-Three during the duration of the feature, Scelzi would cap his night with a third place run as the team readied for two nights of action with the All Star Circuit of Champions.

Checking in at Williams Grove Speedway, a venue he won at a year ago, Scelzi got off to a strong start as he timed in fastest in his qualifying flight, and fastest overall.

Running fourth in his heat race, Scelzi would advance into one of the twin dashes based on his qualifying time, and by way of the win in Dash No. 2, he would start on the front row of the feature event.

On another slick surface, Scelzi would get off to a great start as he would get the early jump in the feature event. Pacing the field over the likes of Aaron Reutzel and Kyle Larson.

With a little rubber starting to go down on the speedway, Scelzi would be at a bit of a disadvantage as the leader. With Aaron Reutzel getting to it first, he would overtake Scelzi for the race lead on the 14th lap.

Settling into second, Scelzi would hang on to the position as he would fend off Larson and land on the podium with the All Stars by way of a runner up finish.

Returning to Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night for the Dirt Classic, Scelzi would continue to flex his muscle and show speed as he timed in third quickest in his time trials flight.

Running the unique Dirt Classic format, the youngster would win his first heat before finishing seventh in his second heat. Once points were tabulated, he would find himself safely in the feature event as he took the green flag from the sixth starting position.

The feature event did not quite go how Scelzi and company had hoped to cap off the busy week of racing, but he was still able to battle inside the Top-10 during much of the 40-lap affair. Slipping back to 11th in the closing laps, Scelzi would finish there to finish the week off.

“Saturday night we missed it a little, but I am still really happy with how the week went and how much we learned as a team,” Scelzi said. “I am really confident heading into Eldora Speedway, and Plymouth Speedway this week.”

KCP Racing would like to thank Logan Contractors Supply Inc., Aspen Aire, Royal Flooring, Bobcat, Ted’s Body Shop, Team Excavating, Cox Design and Fabrication, Armor Electric Company, TammyHeckart.com, Quality Traffic Control, BergenKDV, and BK Racing Titanium for their support this season.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-19, Wins-0, Top-5’s- 8, Top 10’s-9

ON TAP: Scelzi and KCP Racing will take part in Tuesday and Wednesday’s Governors Reign at Eldora Speedway before battling with the World of Outlaws on Thursday night at Plymouth Speedway.

SOLID IN SEPTEMBER: CJB Team Stout as All Stars Come to Pennsylvania
Team gets ready for Champion Racing Oil National Open with tune up

CARLISLE, PA. - September 21, 2020 - The Ollies Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions swung through Pennsylvania and gave Brent Marks and his CJB Motorsports team plenty of opportunities to chase victories.

Marks and the team were in action on September 16th at Lincoln Speedway near Abbottstown, Pa. Marks timed in 18th after a nasty flip. Marks then finished 7th in his heat race before charging from 8th to 2nd in the B-main. Marks kept up the speed in the A-main by going from 22nd to 9th.

On Friday, September 19th, the team was back in action at Williams Grove Speedway near Mechanicsburg. Marks timed in 3rd in his group, finished 2nd in heat race and 5th in the feature.

The team wrapped up their weekend with another stop at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, September 19. Marks timed in 14th for the 7th annual Dirt Classic before finished 3rd and 2nd in his heat races. From there, Marks drove to a 3rd place finish.

Pierson Construction Co., Wolfrun Landscapes, Nyce, Crete & Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn and Landscape, Ecynbro Trucking machine. "Caught some trouble Wednesday at Lincoln, but the guys worked really hard to get me back out there for the heat race and we were able to salvage our night with a top 10. We had a great car at Williams Grove. Unfortunately, it took rubber and just became a survival type of night. The Dirt Classic (at Lincoln) we had a phenomenal car. I wish we could have gotten to lap traffic because I feel like I would have been able to get by Aaron (Reutzel) and battle Kyle (Larson) for the win."

Schweikart and Zimmerman win 40 Lappers at Clinton County

Mill Hall, PA – The Clinton County Speedway hosted two large race events on Saturday for the RaceSaver Sprint Cars and the Pro Stocks. Thirty-three IMCA RaceSaver Sprint were in competition for the Nittany 40 Championship sponsored by Bill’s Happy Camper of Mill Hall. Twenty-seven Pro Stocks were in attendance for the 40-lap C.W. Smith Memorial honoring the late racer who competed in late models, the ARCA Series and eventually NASCAR with a team based locally in nearby Williamsport. Dale Schweikart of Linden won the Nittany 40 and John Zimmerman of Varysburg, NY won the C.W. Smith Memorial. Timmy Bittner of Beech Creek claimed the 270 Micro Sprint feature and Blake Snyder won the 4-Cylinder main event.

Tylor Cochran of Williamsport set fast time in Sprint Car time trials with a lap time of 15.620 second. Four heat races and a consolation were used to determine the starting line up for the Nittany 40. Matt Tebbs of Cogan Station and Ryan Lynn of Hollidaysburg brought the field of sprint cars to the green flag. Lynn made the pass for the lead going down the front stretch leading Tebbs and national IMCA points leader Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery. The caution flag waived on lap number four when Doug Dodson spun in turn number two. On the restart, Lynn controlled the top spot and while Tebbs and Bard battled for second. Firth place starter Dale Schweikart and fourth place starter Tylor Cochran completed the top five. On lap number six, Bard and Schweikart passed Tebbs and set their sights on the leader. Schweikart passed Bard on lap number 8 for the runner up position. On lap number fourteen, Lynn began to encounter lapped traffic allowing Schweikart to get within striking distance. However, Lynn threaded his way through the lapped traffic and when Schweikart would get close, Lynn managed to put a lapped car between them. Lynn’s approach to lap traffic was flawless, until the caution came out on lap number 23 when Tebbs and Dylan Proctor of Lock Haven tangled in turns three and four. On the restart, the motor of Lynn’s car appeared to miss as he did not get as strong of start, allowing Schweikart to take the lead. Bard, Cochran, and Lutz were able to pass Lynn shuffling him back to fifth. On lap 27, three cars came together in turns one and two. Kyle Coldwell and Dakota Schweikart of Linden tangled in turn two and Josh Beamer of Hughesville was also involved as he had no place to go. All three cars were able to restart, with Dakota Schweikart feeling the biggest disappointment as he started last in the feature event and worked his way up to eighth before being involved in the wreck.

Schweikart brought the field back for the green flag with Cochran, Bard, Lutz, and thirteenth place starter Jared Zionkowski in the top five. Lutz passed Bard for third on lap number 29. Cochran and Lutz tried to chase down Schweikart, but just could not make the pass. At the checkered flag, Schweikart won by .270 second for this third feature of the season and the biggest races of his sprint car career. “This has been a great season, I would like to thank the fans, the speedway workers and everyone who has made Clinton County a great place for RaceSavers sprints,” said Schweikart in victory lane. “Many of the best in the country were here today and that make this win even more special.” Cochran finished second, Lutz was third, Bard finished fourth and Zionkowski completed the top five. Sixth through tenth were Derek Hauck, Ken Duke, Jeffrey Weaver, Brad Mellott and Dylan Proctor. Heat race winners were Tebbs, Dale Schweikart, Bard and Proctor. The B-main was won by Ken Duke.

Outside pole sitter, Don Russell led the opening two laps of the 40 lap C.W. Smith Memorial event. By the completion of lap number 3, fourth place starter John Zimmerman took the lead with Russell in second, Steven Reinhardt in third, Brandon Moser in fourth and Robert Tressler in the top five. Zimmerman begins to catch lapped traffic on lap number twelve with Reinhardt and Moser hoping for the leader to make a mistake. A caution on lap number 16 for Mike Koser, bunched the field for the restart. Sixth place starter Kurt Stebbins used the restart to pass Moser and Reinhardt and focused on catching Zimmerman. The caution waived once again on lap number 21. The restart found Zimmerman leading Stebbins, Reinhardt, Jason Smith, and Noah Jenson. As the green flag waived Stebbins’ car started to smoke as the field came back up to full speed. Five laps later, the caution waived for Rich Sharpsteer and Reinhard, as Stebbins retired his smoking car to the pit area. The final restart found Zimmerman with Jason Smith on his back bumper followed by Noah Jensen, Moser, and Ray Rothfuss in the top five. Smith and Jensen battled for the runner up position for several laps. At the finish, Zimmerman claimed the $1,800 pay day over Smith, Jenson, Moser, and Tommy Dawson. Sixth through tenth were Rothfuss, Russell, AY Schilling, Bob Buono and Cory Long. Heat race winners were Reinhardt, Zimmerman, and Moser, while AY Schilling won the B-main.

Mitchell Holden and Logan Hammaker led the field of 270 Micro Sprints to the drop of the green flag. 2020 track champion, Timmy Bittner of Beech Creek advanced from his fourth starting spot to lead the first lap. The caution waived on lap number 3 when Hammaker spun. On the restart Bittner led Ethan Spotts, Jeffrey Weaver, Dan Wertman and Kyle Stahl. Stahl brought out the caution at the races’ midway point. Bittner opened a several car lengths advantage over the rest of the field. Weaver took over the runner up position on the final lap. Third through fifth were Wertman, Buddy Kramer, and Holden. Sixth through tenth were James Bigler, Levi Brungard, Spotts, Corey Stable and Logan Hammaker. Heat races were won by Bittner and Wertman

Pole sitter Tyler Watson led the opening laps of the 4 cylinder feature event. Watson had to contend with the challenges of fellow front row starter Chris Orwig. Bake Snyder who started sixth moved into the runner up position on lap number four and began to pressure Watson. Snyder made the pass for the lead at the midway mark of the race. Orwig took the runner up position lap number 7, with Watson battling back to regain the position on lap number 10. At the finish, Snyder was the winner over Watson, Orwig, Sam Creveling and Dylan Craft. Sixth through tenth were Shaun Wise, Scott Englert, Kyle Strouse, Brett Shirk, and Tim Muthler. Heat races were won by Snyder and Creveling.

The Clinton County Speedway will now prepare for the season finale on Saturday, October 3rd when the Super Late Models compete for a $5,000 top prize presented by Strouse Electric.

Michaels Mercer Raceway presents the “Fall brawl” Friday, September 25 featuring 410 sprints paying $2,000 to win

By Jim Balentine Mercer, Pa

The oval track racing has been quiet at Mercer since early September but will roar back with a vengeance for the fall brawl which will be held on Friday, September 25th which will feature the 410 sprint cars battling for $2000 to win!! also on the card will be the big block modifieds; the FASTRAK limited modifieds the Racesaver 305 sprints and the mighty Mercer mini stocks.

The show will be a quick tuneup for the 21st annual little guy nationals to be held the following week the first week of October.

The 410 sprint cars have been highly competitive at Mercer this year in their limited appearances. 3rd generation driver Adam Kekich has two feature wins and 4 time track Champion and 2nd generation driver Jack Sodeman Jr has one win. Jeremy Kornbau has been doing a great job and has been knocking on the door of victory Lane along with Brandon Spithaler. With the show being on a Friday night it is possible that some western or central Ohio sprint cars will head east to Mercer to race in the open 410 show.

The Racesaver 305 sprints have been very competitive as well with 2019 track champion Jake Gomola being the only repeat winner!! Greg Dobrosky who also picked up the “Big Mav Classic” central Pa standout Garrett Bard and Randy Sterling have been the only other victors.

The big block modifieds this season started out with New York State dominating the features with Phil Vigneri, Erik Rudolph and Chad Brachmann from the big Apple state picking up big paying wins until 2019 and 1995 champ Rex King Sr picked up his first Mercer checker of 2020 and his son Rex King Jr was the last modified winner at the speedway. Veteran Dave Murdick has been winless at Mercer this year and has one final race to take the win.

The FASTRAK limited modifieds have been growing every week and has been so competitive it took last year’s track champion Brian Schaffer four nights until he could pick up his first win of 2020. Longtime Modifed racer Eric Gabany has 2 wins, youngster Preston Cope picked up his first ever Mercer Checker, and the big circuit winner Chas Wolbert has 2 Mercer victories.

The mighty Mercer mini stocks have had five feature events out of six that have been won by less than one second!!! and have been averaging 25 cars a night with 5 different winners!! Adam Aley who returned to racing after a 19 year layoff , picked up his first career win at Mercer as did Phil King!! Adam’s brother Will has one win, and Mike Porterfield has two, and former champ Tim Callahan has one.

Grandstand admission will be $20 adult senior $17 Pits will be $35 and $30 for seniors Pit gates open at four with grandstands at five and racing at seven

We are looking for sponsors to help increase the payoffs and all divisions please message the track on Facebook or leave a message at the track office 7246621310.

 

 

Must See Racing Heading In A New Direction

HOLLY, Mich. (Sept. 19, 2020) — After more than a decade of sanctioning winged sprint car competition, Must See Racing will head in a new direction next year.

Must See Racing President Jim Hanks confirmed Saturday that the organization will undergo a transition, reformatting the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series presented by Engine Pro and moving to a special-events-only structure.

“This is a move that came as a very tough decision for us, as this series has been our brand since 2010,” said Hanks. “But based on all existing relevant factors, we had no choice but to finalize this move to conclude the season. No further events will be planned and our special awards and championship banquet will not be held. The points fund money will be mailed to the eligible car owners who supported all of our 2020 events.

“Moving forward into the future, we will no longer organize a traditional series or schedule, but will instead promote and manage several innovative special events featuring multiple racing series, race tracks and divisions from across America,” Hanks added. “This plan will showcase our marketing partners’ products and services both in multimedia and through national television distribution.

“Our new format will enhance our primary business focus: delivering exciting and compelling racing entertainment, news and content to the marketplace and providing our marketing partners with expanded means and value to effectively reach and connect with mass audiences.”

The Must See Racing Sprint Car Series presented by Engine Pro began in 2010, with Tampa, Fla., veteran Troy DeCaire collecting the first two points titles before JoJo Helberg raced to the 2012 championship.

Indiana’s Brian Gerster secured back-to-back crowns in 2013 and ’14 before Ohio’s Jimmy McCune started a streak of success in 2015 that ultimately culminated in five consecutive series titles.

With the 2020 season declared complete after four races — two at Wisconsin’s Golden Sands Speedway, one at Ohio’s Lorain County Speedway and one at Pennsylvania’s Jennerstown Speedway Complex — Anthony McCune stands as the kingpin of the year, edging Jimmy McCune in the final tally.

Both McCunes earned 345 points across the four races, but Anthony’s two victories at Golden Sands over Jimmy’s lone victory at Lorain County served as the difference-maker.

Looking at the final numbers, 110 features were completed in the 11-year history of the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series presented by Engine Pro. Jimmy McCune heads the all-time win list with 34.

Twenty-one different drivers earned at least one sprint car victory under Must See Racing sanction.

Additional details on the future direction of Must See Racing will be announced at a later date.

Bacon Carries Momentum into Pair of USAC Events

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (September 18, 2020) – Brady Bacon surrendered the USAC Sprint Car points lead last weekend.

But only for one night before he posted finishes of second and then first at Lincoln Park Speedway on Saturday night to regain the series points lead.

Bacon and the the Fatheadz Eyewear No. 69 Sprint Car team are back in USAC Sprint Car action this weekend with events at the Terre Haute Action Track on Friday and then Haubstadt’s Tri-State Speedway on Saturday.

Last weekend’s action began with Bacon posting a tenth-place finish at Bloomington Speedway on Friday night after starting 14th.

Shifting over to Lincoln Park Speedway on Saturday, Bacon rallied from eighth to claim runner-up honors in the makeup feature from Indiana Sprintweek and then led the final half of the nightcap for his third Putnamville win of the year and 11th overall.

“Lincoln Park – two features in one day, a first and a second,” Bacon exclaimed. “You can ask for a little better than that but not much better. We’ll definitely take it after we struggled last night at Bloomington.”

“We’re pretty fortunate to be in the battle at all,” Bacon said. “We had some mistakes early in the year. To even be in the hunt, we’re pretty fortunate for that and that other people had some misfortune. So, we’re just taking it a day at a time, just going out here and winning races. Obviously, you have that in the back of your mind when you see other guys struggling a little bit. You kind of have to put it in a little bit of a conservative mode and not do anything stupid, but at the same time, you want to go out and win races.”

Bacon will try to go out and win another couple of races at Terre Haute and Tri-State Speedway this weekend.

Brady Bacon Racing is bolstered by the support of partners including Hoffman Auto Racing, Fatheadz Eyewear, Champion Oil, Gene Franckowiak, Drivewfx.com, Elliott’s Custom Trailers, ATC Trailers, Tel-Star Technologies, Dragonfly Aviation, Lykins Oil, Triple X Race Co., Hoosier Tire, XYZ Machine, Heath Clips Lawn Care, FK Indy, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Rod Ends, Specialty Rigging, Keizer Wheels, Purple Heart Foundation, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Smiley’s Racing Products, R&R Enterprises, DMI, ProGlide Coatings, Chalk Stixx, Wilwood Engineering, Lajoie Seats, Smith Precision Products, Allstar Performance, Simpson Racing Products, MyRacePass, Schroth Racing, Saldana Racing Products, KSE Racing Products, King Racing Products and Schoenfeld Headers.

Spencer Bayston Tabbed To Finish 2020 With Roth Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- Roth Motorsports is pleased to announce that Lebanon, IN driver, Spencer Bayston, has been hired to finish the 2020 season in the famed No. 83 machine starting with next week’s Governors Reign at Eldora Speedway.

“I am very excited and honored to have this opportunity to drive for such a top notch team on the World of Outlaws tour,” Spencer Bayston said. “I have a ton of respect for Daryn Pittman and the success he had with the team over the last two seasons, and I know these are really big shoes to fill.”

Over the last three seasons Bayston has made the transition into 410ci racing competing for the likes of the Swindell Speed Lab, Pete Grove, Indy Race Parts, and Tarlton Motorsports.

2020 has been a break out year of sorts for the youngster as he picked up a King of the West feature event win at the Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA, ran 5th at the Capitani Classic, and recently picked up an All Star Circuit of Champions win at Lincoln Speedway in PA against the vaunted PA Posse.

Bayston joins a young Roth Motorsports crew led by Brent Ventura who looks forward to the new venture to close out the 2020 season, as Stephen Hamm-Reilly and Tony Barkman will remain in place

“I am excited to work with Spencer Bayston and see what we can do together,” Ventura said. “I’ve seen him run up front at a lot of places that we have on our upcoming schedule, and hopefully we can finish this season out strong.”

As of now the plan is for Bayston to take over at Eldora Speedway next week, and then the team will continue on with the World of Outlaws for the remainder of their schedule.

“We are very excited to welcome Spencer Bayston aboard,” Dennis Roth said. “We still have a lot of racing left in 2020, and we are looking forward to seeing how the team can perform.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co., HR Livestock Transportation, Roth Investments, Southern Pacific Farms, All Star Performance, FK Rod Ends, Weld Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, Smith Titanium, and Team Simpson for their support in 2020.

ON TAP: Spencer Bayston and Roth Motorsports will debut together on September 22nd and 23rd at Eldora Speedway

STAY CONNECTED: Stay connected with Roth Motorsports by checking out their website, www.rothmotorsports83.com, following along on Twitter and Instagram @RothMotorsports.

 

Big races set this weekend for Williams Grove, Clinton County

PA Sprint Series teams will kick off their post-Labor Day season with two big nights of competition at Williams Grove Speedway Friday and Clinton County Speedway Saturday.

At the Grove, PASS will be part of a program featuring the Jack Gunn Memorial/Dirt Track Classic Qualifier for the All Star Circuit of Champions and PA Posse 410 sprints. The All Stars, sponsored by Pennsylvania-based Ollie’s Bargain Outlets, will run 30 laps for $5,000 to win, while PASS will run a 20-lap feature for the IMCA/RaceSaver sprints.

With an earlier appearance having been cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, this will be PASS’s only 2020 race at the Grove. Last year’s sole feature was won by Dave Grube II of York Haven, who will be the only former winner in the field.

Gates will open Friday at 5:30 p.m. with racing set to start at 7:30. Adult general admission is $20, $10 for youth 13-20, and kids 12 and under free.

Clinton County’s new management will celebrate a successful first season – even with the pandemic complications – with a special show Saturday evening that will include the Nittany Championship 40-lapper for Laurel Highlands Sprint Series and PASS teams. Time trials, qualifying races and a non-qualifiers event also are scheduled. Pro stocks also will have a special race, the C.W. Smith Memorial, and 270 micro sprints and 4-cylinders are on the card as well.

Garrett Bard’s victory last Friday earned the Wells Tannery driver the 2020 Clinton County track championship for RaceSaver sprints, and he will be among the drivers on hand to aim for the $800 winner’s share of the purse ($400 to start).

Gates for this special show will open at 1:00 p.m., with hot laps set for 4:00 and racing at 4:30. Adult general admission is $15, with students, seniors and military admitted for $10 and children 12 and under free.

Next weekend PASS will have another “double,” with racing at Lincoln Speedway Friday night and Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday. Only two races follow those before the season-ending Keystone RaceSaver Challenge (the “Blue Collar Classic”) at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, Oct. 24.

EDDIE TAFOYA TAKING FAMILIAR ROAD BACK TO INDIANA FOR USAC NATIONAL SPRINT CAR SERIES RACES

(Chino, CA, September 17, 2020) For Southern California sprint car racer Eddie Tafoya Jr., the road between the west coast and Indiana is starting to look as familiar as Central Avenue in his hometown of Chino, California. For the third time in the last two months, the 23-year-old racer is making the long trek back to the Hoosier State to compete in Friday’s Jim Hurtubise Classic at the Terre Haute Action Track and Saturday’s Haubstadt Hustler at the Tri-State Speedway.
118615172_3348045158551232_3022723740998338809_o.jpg

2020 was supposed to be a big year on the track for Tafoya and his father, Eddie Sr. Jr. was set for his second full season in the USAC/CRA Series after winning the Rookie of the Year Award in 2019. Sr., a past draft choice of Major League Baseball’s Pittsburgh Pirates was planning on racing at their home track, Perris Auto Speedway, in the Senior Sprint Car Series. However, the ongoing COVID crisis has prevented racing in California. Thus, the only racing for the duo has all been done by Eddie Jr.

Tafoya has appeared one time each on Terre Haute and Tri-State. That was in July on his first trip to race in Indiana during Indiana Sprint Week. At Terre Haute, which is a big, bad fast half-mile, he was anything but intimidated, qualifying 20th in the 42-car field. He was sixth in his heat race and only missed the transfer to the feature by two spots in the B Main. A few nights later in his initial appearance at Tri-State Speedway, the Chino Hills, California resident only qualified 33rd out of 40 cars. Things improved when racing began when he only missed the transfer to the A main by one spot out of his heat race. In the B main, he battled with some of the legends of Midwest racing for the final transfer spot. He seesawed in and out of the transfer spots before finishing eighth. The tenacity displayed in that B main garnered a lot of attention for the west coast racer.

Three weeks ago, Tafoya turned in his best Indiana appearance with a late-race charge that saw him advance from his mid-pack starting spot to take the final transfer into the A main at the 9th Annual Smackdown at the Kokomo Speedway. Fifty-drivers started the three-night event and only 23 qualified for the finale. Eddie Tafoya Jr. was one of them and he placed 19th in the prestigious 40-lapper.

If things go well for Tafoya and the Specialty Fasteners team this weekend, they may hang around Indiana for a week to race at I-69 Gas City Speedway and “Indiana’s Baddest Bullring,” Kokomo Speedway, on September 25th and 26th.

Fans who cannot get away to watch Tafoya in Indiana can catch all the action live on the Flo Racing website. For details, please click on the following link. https://www.floracing.com/

Information on the Terre Haute Action Track and Tri-State Speedway is listed below.

Terre Haute Action Track – 3901 S. US Hwy 41, Terre Haute, IN 47802 – (217) 764-3200 - https://terrehauteactiontrack.net/

The Title Chases at DCRP!

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (September 17, 2020) – It all comes down to Saturday night at Dodge City Raceway Park.

The season championships will be finalized in Saturday’s Eighth Annual Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship event.

An event that has grown into a must-win for any racer that frequents the 3/8-mile clay oval, positions throughout the top ten of each division can be shuffled pending Saturday night results.

Saturday’s card features the five championship chase divisions, including the Hambelton Racing DCRP Sprint Cars versus the United Rebel Sprint Series along with the IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Hobby Stocks.

Saturday’s green flag flies at 7:30 p.m.

A look at the current title chases…

Hambelton Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars:

Taylor Velasquez took advantage of a rough night for Luke Cranston during August’s DCRP Sprint Car Nationals to take over the top spot. A finish of eighth or better will secure another track championship for Velasquez. But a miscue opens the door for Cranston to make it two in row at DCRP.

Jordan Knight picked off another win over Labor Day weekend and still has Cranston well within his sights for second and a mathematical chance at swiping the crown.

Feature Winners: Jake Bubak 2, Brett Becker 1, Zach Blurton 1, Luke Cranston 1, Jordan Knight 1, Taylor Velasquez 1, Koby Walters 1.

Non-Point Wins: Jordan Knight 1, Cody Lampe 1.

Current Top Ten in Points: 1. Taylor Velasquez 1,105, 2. Luke Cranston 1,079, 3. Jordan Knight 1,064, 4. Ray Seemann 1,044, 5. Tyler Knight 970, 6. Brian Herbert 955, 7. Kris Moore 915, 8. Ross Essenburg 902, 9. Kohl Ricke 855, 10. Kyler Johnson 849.

IMCA Modifieds:

In his rookie season piloting an IMCA Modified, Dakota Sproul has won four of six features at DCRP this season and can do no worse than tying for the championship by simply taking the green flag in Saturday night’s feature.

Trent Gray holds down second and could tie Sproul with an early Sproul exit to a 20th place finish. And he has to win as well. Gray’s hold on second is tenuous though with Kale Beavers just five points back.

Feature Winners: Dakota Sproul 4, Kale Beavers 1, Clay Sellard 1.

Non-Point Wins: Tracy Link 2, Nick Link 1, William Nusser 1.

IMCA Sport Modifieds:

Consistency has Mike Lunow one night away from a championship. Entering the night with a 47-point lead over Kamren Gruber, an 18th place finish or better puts the title away.

The points are tight from second on back with Gruber just seven points ahead of Brendyn Nordyke and another four drivers within another 30 points.

Feature Winners: Brandon Kenny 2, Brett Berry 1, Monty Nordyke 1, Matt Rucker 1, Kaleb Roach 1, Luke Stallbaumer 1.

Non-Point Wins: Brian May 1, Kyle Wiens 1.

IMCA Stock Cars:

The closest battle for the title is in the Stock Car ranks. Troy Burkhart is well within striking distance at just 19 points off the lead pace, but Chris Oliver can secure the crown with a finish of sixth or better. Oliver won the last points race on August 15.

Feature Winners: Troy Burkhart 2, Gregg Schell 2, Jeff Kaup 1, Chris Oliver 1.

Non-Point Wins: Ondre Rexford 1, Gregg Schell 1.

IMCA Hobby Stocks:

Duane Wahrman is making a late push for the championship with a win in the most recent points race on August 15. But it may be too late, as Hays’ Tathan Burkhart carries a 23-point lead into Saturday’s finale and can wrap it up with a finish of seventh or better.

Feature Winners: Tathan Burkhart 2, Duane Wahrman 2, Brady Bencken 1, Trevor Schmidt 1.

Boulton Posts Top-Five Outing During Rare Race at I-30 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Sept. 17, 2020) - Tucker Boulton was probably starting to wonder if he was going to race again in 2020.

It's been one obstacle after another this year. Boulton endured an injury to start the season before the COVID-19 pandemic halted his racing efforts. Over the last month, rain has pounded the Mid-South and kept Boulton at home.

That changed last weekend when Boulton finally got a break in the weather. He took advantage of it, positing a solid top-five finish in the 305ci sprint car feature at I-30 Speedway on Saturday.

"It felt good to get back to the track," he said. "It was funny, we were sitting here working on the car in the driveway on some last-minute things. We were getting ready to start it and it was a downpour of rain. We drove in the rain to Little Rock and then sunshine.

"We were real happy with that finish. We haven't run this car anywhere but Riverside, so to take it to I-30 and not know how it was going to run there, we figured it out pretty quickly. It worked pretty well for us."

Boulton and his team adjusted quickly after rolling into the pit area. He passed three cars in his heat race to finish fourth, which put him in good position for the feature.

In the main event, Boulton drove into the top five and was able to maintain. He came away with a solid fifth-place finish and learned more about the car.

It was a good evaluation and a confidence boost for the team, and it couldn't have come at a better time with the Grassroots Nationals at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., looming this Saturday.

"It's real weird to still be running a bright orange and white car, which isn't our colors," Boulton said. "To go out there in someone else's car and do well is really good. It gives us a lot of confidence going into this week with it being our home track. We learned to race there."

Saturday's show is with the Midsouth 305 Sprint Car Association. Boulton is tied for second in the championship standings. He ranks third in the Riverside International Speedway 305 standings.

Daryn Pittman and Roth Motorsports Mutually Agree to End Season in Different Directions

PETERSEN MEDIA- After announcing he would be seeking other opportunities for the 2021 season last week, Daryn Pittman has made the decision to vacate the seat of the Roth Motorsports entry following this weekend’s World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series events at Lawton Speedway in Oklahoma, and the Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Texas.

“While we had hoped to finish the year off strong with Daryn Pittman, we respect his decision and wish him the best in his future endeavors,” Team Owner, Dennis Roth said. “We appreciate everything he did for our race team over the last two seasons, and now we will turn our attention to our team’s upcoming events to end the 2020 season and getting prepared for 2021.”

In two seasons with Roth Motorsports, Pittman was able to claim the 2019 DIRTCar Nationals Championship, the 2019 Front Row Challenge Title, the 2019 Gold Cup Race of Champions Crown, and in total four World of Outlaws feature event wins.

In a shortened 2020 campaign due to the shutdown earlier this year, Pittman and company sit 7th in series points with 10 Top-5 finishes and 25 Top-10’s.

“I really want to thank Dennis and Teresa Roth, for the opportunity to drive their car for the last two years. I’d also like to thank Todd Ventura, Brent Ventura, Stephen Hamm-Reilly, and Tony Barkman for their efforts and hard work this season,” Daryn Pittman said. “Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to reach the success we had hoped for, and I feel that it is best for both of us to move in a different direction at this time. I am excited to finish out the season as strong as I can on a personal level, and I hope this allows Roth Motorsports to get a strong start on the 2021 season. I truly wish them nothing but the best moving forward.”

While Pittman vacates the seat following this weekend’s action, Roth Motorsports still intends on fielding a car in the upcoming Governor’s Reign at Eldora Speedway, as well as the remaining events sanctioned by the World of Outlaws.

Details on who will fill the vacated seat are still being finalized and will be released in the near future.

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co., HR Livestock Transportation, Roth Investments, Southern Pacific Farms, All Star Performance, FK Rod Ends, Weld Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, Smith Titanium, and Team Simpson for their support in 2020.

Starks Venturing to Skagit Speedway and Huset's Speedway This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - PUYALLUP, Wash. (Sept. 16, 2020) - Trey Starks is planning to run a trio of 360ci winged sprint car races this weekend.

Starks will pilot his family owned car on Thursday at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash., during the track's season finale prior to invading Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., with Gobrecht Motorsports for the DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores.

"We've had success at Skagit and at Huset's so I think it will be a great weekend," he said. "This will be our final race of the season in the family car and I think our last two 360 races with Gobrecht Motorsports this season so hopefully we'll be a contender each night."

Starks was victorious at Skagit Speedway this summer.

"We got better each time we raced there before picking up the win in July," he said. "We had a great chance at winning the last race a couple of weeks ago, too. I went for the win, but got into the cushion too hard and we ended up in the wall. I know we have a car capable of competing for the victory so hopefully everything plays out in our favor."

Starks has three 410ci starts at Huset's Speedway this summer with Gobrecht Motorsports. The team's best result was a 12th-place effort in the most recent race, which was also their top World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series result of the season.

"We've had good speed at Huset's and our last run gives us more confidence there," Starks said. "This will be different since we haven't run a 360 there, but the laps in the 410 should help us adapt quickly this weekend."

Brian Brown Invading Lincoln Speedway and Williams Grove Speedway This Week

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 16, 2020) - Brian Brown has a trio of races in Central Pennsylvania on the agenda this week.

Brown, who raced in the Tuscarora 50 last weekend, is heading to Lincoln Speedway in Lincoln on Wednesday and Saturday as well as Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg on Friday.

Sept. 10 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Qualifying: 17; Heat race: 1 (2); Dash: 1 (1); Feature: 23 (2).

"We didn't qualify as well as we wanted, but with the All Star format we started in a good spot in the heat race," Brown said. "We got by Shane (Stewart) to win the heat. We won a dash and felt good going into the A Main. We got a couple of good starts, but the one that went was our worst start. We fell to second and then to third. Midway through the race I tried to make a bigger arc into turn one. It sucked me into the fence and we knocked the right rear tire down. We were lucky we didn't turn over."

Sept. 11 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Qualifying: 7; Heat race: DNF (2); B Main: 3 (2); Feature: 23 (23).

"We were going to be in a good spot to be in the dash on our overall qualifying time and we broke a rear end in the heat race," Brown said. "Stuff like that happens. We haven't broke one of those in six or eight years. Sometimes you have that stuff. We transferred through the B Main, but in the A Main I felt like we weren't fast enough to drive through there. We're planning on being out here for a while so you want to save your equipment for another night on nights like that."

Sept. 12 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Qualifying: 9; Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 19 (16).

"We qualified a little better, but the format is different," Brown said. "We started third and ran third. Then in the feature we were up to 12 th. We had been so tight other nights so we left our car free. The slicker the track got the worse we got. Overall, we weren't as good there as we had been in the past."

UP NEXT - Wednesday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa.; and Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., for the Jack Gunn Memorial and Saturday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., for the Dirt Classic with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1

"We've been pretty good at Lincoln," Brown said. "We've gone back to our notes so hopefully we'll have a good car. I feel like we should be okay. I wouldn't say they are high expectations, but I have expectations to run good."

Henderson and Sandvig Racing Contend for IRA Series Win at Cedar Lake Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (Sept. 16, 2020) - A late-race accident marred a chance at victory for Justin Henderson in the Mike Sandvig Racing No. 7 during the 19th annual Jerry Richert Memorial at Cedar Lake Speedway last Saturday.

It marked the second consecutive season misfortune hampered the team during the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series event.

Henderson did manage to grab his second career win in the 360ci sprint car portion of the event earlier in the night aboard his own car. However, it was the sting of letting a potential clean sweep slip away that was still on his mind at the end of the night.

"We would've been the first one in the history of the event to win both races in one night and it's disappointing not to see that play out," he said. "It had the potential to be a very big night for our program, but I guess luck had other plans. It just goes to show that one minute you're on top of the world and the next you're at the bottom of the mountain."

Henderson began the night by timing in quickest overall among 25 cars in attendance with a lap of 11.892 seconds. He followed that up by winning a heat race from the fourth starting position and earning a spot into a dash.

A second-place finish in the dash lined Henderson up on the inside of the second row for the feature. He dropped to fourth on the opening lap. Using the low side of the track, Henderson crept back into third and he settled into the runner-up spot before the halfway mark.

With less than 10 laps remaining, Henderson was in heavy pursuit of the leader in traffic when he got all four wheels over the cushion in a turn and flipped. He was credited with a 23rd-place finish.

"We were pretty fast at both ends of the track and had a car capable of winning from the moment we unloaded," he said. "I could really run all over the track and the car was so good no matter where I put it. Every time it seemed the leader was going to get away from us, we'd reel them right back in and it just sucks knowing how good we were."

After looking things over, the team found that the wreck was the result of a cracked spindle.

"I was kind of scratching my head trying to figure out what happened as I hit that same mark on the track all night and not once did I get it up over the cushion like that," he said. "But last week when we hit the wall something kind of felt off and I think it was kind of a precursor for what happened out there. It's just unfortunate it cost us a chance at history, but thankfully all my safety equipment held up and we can try again next time."

Williamson Overcomes Race Day Adversity for 12th-Place Showing at Midwest Fall Brawl

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 16, 2020) - Garet Williamson and his team showed last weekend that they can deal with adversity.

The trailer had a flat tire on the way to I-80 Speedway for the Casey's General Store Midwest Fall Brawl, which put the Bryant Paver Motorsports team a little behind. That's not a good way to start a day that includes facing the Lucas ASCS National Tour regulars.

But Williamson persevered. The Columbia, Mo., ace got off to a quick start in his heat race, which set him up for a respectable 12th-place showing in the first Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event since Aug. 9.

"Obviously, when you start up that far you want to end up there," Williamson said of starting sixth and finishing 12th. "We kind of missed the setup a little bit, but we started the night off really good.

"We picked up a heat race win and to be back with the National guys, we ran decent with them. We had a long day so it was a good day for our team with what we went through."

Blowing a trailer tire on the way to the track didn't help. Luckily, rain and wet grounds delayed the start of the racing program. When the lights did go on, Williamson showed speed. He won his heat race from sixth and finished sixth in a qualifier, which lined him up on the outside of the third row in the feature.

Williamson said he struggled a bit during the 35-lap event, but considering how the day started, it was a decent run and helped him maintain the lead in the battle for Rookie of the Year.

"It was just one of those days," he said. "It felt good. I like running with those guys, but I wish we could've raced a little more consistently throughout the year.

"We would run with them for a weekend and then be off. It's nice to race hard with those guys and race clean and get the same thing back from them."

Williamson gets a chance to improve on last weekend's result when he heads to Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., this Thursday through Saturday for the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial. Saturday's main event pays $10,000 to the winner.

"I'm super pumped," he said. "I think they are sitting at 83 entries so it's probably one of the biggest races of the year besides the 360 Knoxville Nationals. It's kind of close to home. There are going to be hometown fans there and it's on MAVTV, so you want to look good as a team.

"It's one of the races we ran at the end of last year and we can see how far we have come as a team. We definitely want to go out and have good, solid nights and lock into Saturday or get at the front of a qualifier to be able to lock it in the show."

Hagar Seeking Return to Victory Lane at Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Sept. 16, 2020) - Derek Hagar is optimistic entering the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this weekend.

Hagar has won both the winged and non-wing portions of the marquee event hosted by Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. However, this weekend he will only be competing in winged action with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour when the event runs Thursday through Saturday.

"We've always had good success when we go to Missouri," he said. "We were just looking at the event t-shirt and it shows we're the only driver to win both the winged and non-wing races. This year we'll only be doing the winged stuff. I look forward to continuing that success this weekend. There's a bunch of cars there and each year the event gets bigger. Just to get in the A Main without having to run a B Main all weekend would be an accomplishment. Once we get in the show we know how to find our way to the front."

Hagar won the winged event in 2014 and he swept the weekend in non-wing competition in 2015.

Hagar is coming off a frustrating ending to a promising night last Saturday at I-30 Speedway, which featured the Ralph Henson Memorial with ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Lone Star Region.

"We were late getting there," he said. "I barely made it myself in time for the pill draw. We had some issues with the trailer. Kenny didn't leave the shop until 6 o'clock and it's a two-hour hike to the track. We didn't get to hot lap. When he got there we unloaded, put heat in the motor and went out for the heat race. We got the lead on the first lap and won it."

Hagar won his heat race from third. That put him in the pole shuffle and he lost his round to garner the sixth starting position for the main event. After winning the Race of Champions, which had no bearing on the program, Hagar lined up on the outside of the third row for the A Main.

"On the first lap I went from sixth to driving by a guy for second," he said. "We had a fast race car. I stuck the bottom really good in turns one and two. Everybody else went middle to the top. I was about to take second when the guy chopped me off going into the corner in turn three and it knocked the front end out. It broke the front end in half and then I got clobbered on the right side. That ended our night."

The DNF snapped Hagar's streak of nine straight top 10s.

Wilson Focused on Making Gains During Final Month of All Star Season

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 16, 2020) - Greg Wilson is in a testing mode with only one month remaining in the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 season.

"The points are pretty much set how they are going to be for us no matter what so it's important we take some swings at improving our racing program," he said.

A couple of swings occurred last weekend during the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway, where Wilson and his new Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics, DNC Hydraulics and Gear Off Road sponsored team struggled with speed early in the night.

The brightest spot came during the final time Wilson touched the track on Saturday night when he hustled from 14th to seventh during the non-qualifier race.

"We didn't produce the results we hoped for, but it was nice to end with a positive," he said. "We also learned throughout the weekend, which is our biggest objective right now as we're trying to find that little bit of speed we need."

Next up will be All Star shows this Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., for the Jack Gunn Memorial and Saturday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., for the Dirt Classic. Wilson plans to also race at Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday during an unsanctioned race.

"This weekend presents another opportunity to try some things and learn on two different size tracks with Williams Grove being a bigger half-mile oval and Lincoln a 3/8-mile track," he said. "The goal is to find more speed and end each night with more knowledge than we entered."

Sept. 10 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Qualifying: 40; Heat race: 9 (9); C Main: 6 (8).

Bogucki Captures Fourth-Place Finish During Midwest Fall Brawl

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 16, 2020) - Scott Bogucki moved into a tie for fifth place in the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour championship standings thanks to a top-five outing last Saturday during the Casey's General Store Midwest Fall Brawl.

The fourth-place finish was the SawBlade.com sponsored driver's third top five of the season with the series and his seventh overall.

"We should have ran third at a minimum," he said. "They got to racing real good in front and I got to rim riding it. I actually knocked it down hard once with about 10 laps to go. The car wasn't that good after that. I got crazy tight so it was more of a survival. I think if the race stayed green I would have finished third, but we had a caution. After the yellow I got so tight and someone got by us. I was super happy with fourth though."

Bogucki opened the night by advancing from fifth to third place in a heat race. He then maneuvered from fourth to second place in a qualifier to rank fifth in overall points, garnering the fifth starting position for the A Main.

"We were good every time we went on the track," he said. "I'm hoping the same thing happens this weekend."

Bogucki will ride that momentum into the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. His best performance at the event is a runner-up result in 2018.

"I'm really looking forward to it," he said. "I think we'll be just fine. I've been really good there until last year. I was rubbish every night. I guess it was just one of those weekends. There's 80 drivers there so you have to be on top of your game."

Dover Extends Top-10 Streak With ASCS National Tour to 15 Straight Years

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 16, 2020) - Jack Dover captured his first top-10 result of the season with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour last Saturday during the Casey's General Store Midwest Fall Brawl at I-80 Speedway.

Dover's sixth-place run gives him at least one top 10 in each of the last 15 years with the series.

"I'm pretty pleased," he said. "To run sixth with that group is pretty good. We're happy with how it went."

Dover started the event, which was also sanctioned by the Carpet Land Nebraska 360 Sprints, by rallying from fourth to win a heat race.

"We got a good start and went into turns one and two through the middle," he said. "I had the lead coming out of turn two. We went into turns three and four and a car spun out so we went to a complete restart. That moved me to the front row outside. We took the lead right away. Sam Hafertepe Jr. got to me and we battled it out for a few laps. We switched our line up, running the middle of the track, and we won."

Dover followed the heat race performance by advancing from fifth to second place in a qualifier.

"We had a good start again and were next to third place at the start/finish line," he said. "We went into turns one and two and were in second. At that point with a guy like (Austin) McCarl in front of you it's hard to get to him, especially when he's in clean air. We kinda rode in second. I didn't press the issue. I figured we were pretty good in points."

Dover ranked third in event points to garner the third starting position for the main event.

"In the feature we rode around in fourth place most of the race," he said. "The last couple of restarts I made a mistake and went to the bottom each time. It just wasn't the place to be."

Dover's sixth-place outing was his 19th top 10 of the season.

Next up is a two-day show at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., this Friday and Saturday for the DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores featuring the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and the Midwest Power Series. Dover swept a two-day event at the track earlier this month.

"We're really excited," he said. "We had a good weekend there two weeks ago. We know what we have to do to make the car a little better. I think we have a top-three car going into the weekend. My confidence is high, but I'm trying to keep a cool head."

Walter cranks out second straight IRA top-10
at Outagamie Speedway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 16, 2020 – It may have taken a little while to fire them up, but Josh Walter and the Torque Racing team appears to be hitting on all cylinders in Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series action.

The 16th-year Plymouth Wis. competitor backed up a strong seventh-place A-main showing at the Dodge County Fairgrounds “horsepower half mile” in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Sept. 4 by notching a solid ninth-place main event finish at Outagamie Speedway Powered by EWSC Racing in Seymour, Wis. on Friday, Sept. 11 to tally the team’s second consecutive top-10 finish in IRA action.

Walter opened the event by ripping off a qualifying lap of 11.859 seconds to finish fourth out of the 22 cars to take a qualifying circuit around the third-mile clay oval.

After starting third in the first 10-lap IRA heat race, Walter drifted high in turn one of the lightning fast racing surface to fall back to fourth in the running order as Jordan Goldesberry slipped past on the opening lap. On lap 2, Robbie Pribnow moved by to drop Walter to fifth, which is where he finished the race.

Walter then drew the third starting position in the second four-lap dash and held the spot throughout the race to secure the sixth starting spot in the 30-lap IRA A main.

Despite a light rain, which had moved over the track after the completion of the second IRA dash, the IRA main event rolled off with Walter starting from the outside of the third row.

After Jordan Goldesberry and Joey Moughan moved past, Walter completed the first lap in eighth place in the running order. On lap 3, the red flag appeared when Bryce Schmitt flipped in turn three.

After restarting ninth, Walter held his position until a yellow flag came out on lap 5 when Joey Moughan spun in turn four. Walter restarted eighth and briefly took over seventh when Jeremy Schultz jumped the cushion in turn four turn on lap 12.

Two laps later, Schultz battled back to duck under Walter in turn four to move Walter back to eighth. As the leaders started to work their way through lapped traffic, Scott Biertzer charged in to seize eighth and drop Walter back to ninth on lap 27.

Walter held the ninth spot over the final three circuits to secure his second top-10 A-main finish of the 2020 season in a race won by Hunter Schuerenberg.

Walter and Torque Racing team are set to take the upcoming weekend off, before returning to action for a Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Car Series doubleheader at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam on Friday, Sept. 25 and The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 26.

Action at The Dodge County Fairgrounds will begin with hot laps at 6 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 25. The program will also include the Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Cars and Modifieds.

The 2020 IRA season will conclude at The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, Sept. 26 with hot laps at 4:45 p.m. with qualifying and racing to follow. The Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships will also include the Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Cars, Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Cars and IRA Lightning Sprint Cars.

(Perris, CA, September 15, 2020) The unimaginable continues as on Monday afternoon, Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian was forced to cancel the September 26th Glenn Howard Classic for the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series. The cancelation is due to state and county mandates prohibiting fans in the grandstand due to the ongoing COVID crisis.

Sadly, the COVID crisis has wreaked havoc with the much anticipated 25th anniversary season of racing at the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval. To date, only the season opening event, Night of Destruction on March 7th, has taken place. Every other scheduled race slated for the ambitious silver anniversary campaign has been canceled.

“When all of this started in March, the impact it would have on small businesses was unthinkable,” a frustrated Kazarian stated on Monday. “Especially on Perris Auto Speedway and other small racetracks.”

The PAS is open for private and group practice sessions as well as for television, movie, and commercial shoots. Anyone who is interested in renting the track for one of those sessions can send an e-mail to kazariandon@gmail.com.

Kazarian and his entire staff urge everyone to do all they can to stay safe and healthy. They look forward to seeing all the fans back at the track as soon as it is possible.

Fans can stay up to date with track and driver news on The PAS Facebook page or website.

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – September 15, 2020…The officials of Placerville Speedway and Matt Wood Racing are excited to announce the second annual Elk Grove Ford “Hangtown 100” will run as scheduled on Thursday-Saturday November 19th, 20th and 21st.

The event will once again showcase the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midgets/ USAC Western States Midgets, along with a support class TBD. As of now the grandstands will be closed to spectators, with all the action being covered by Flo Racing and enjoyed by those in the pits. If anything changes between now and then however, Placerville Speedway will put a plan in place for reserved seating.

At this point we are going to be running with the grandstands closed to spectators but are hopeful that everything moves along well by November and we can welcome back our fans. Pit passes will be available all three days. We will have more announcements in the future.”

Kyle Offill To Finish 2020 Season Off in Midwest

PETERSEN MEDIA: As California’s end of the year schedules thinning out due to state mandates, Kyle Offill and the Country Builders Construction team have made the decision to remain in the Midwest and run through the end of October to close out the 2020 campaign.

“I am super excited for the opportunity to stay out in the Midwest longer than we initially planned,” Kyle Offill said. “It has been a huge learning opportunity for myself both racing, as well as on the car in general as I have been fortunate to work with the McCarl family.”

With many of the marquee Fall events getting postponed and cancelled in Offill’s native California, a slew of options in the Midwest led the Offill family to this decision.

Offill returned to action on Saturday night at I-80 Speedway for the Fall Brawl where he had a really good night going.

Finishing second in his heat race, and fourth in his qualifier, the Tracy, CA driver lined the Country Builders/Ochoco West/Brown and Miller backed No. 88 machine up in the 12th starting position.

When the race came to life, Offill was doing a great job at a track he had never seen before as he quickly got himself up into the Top-10 and soon was making a bid for position inside the Top-5.

As he ran in sixth, Offill would begin pressuring a competitor for fifth when he would get stuck in the slick and it would spin his car into the inside wall ending his night early.

“Saturday night was a lot of fun,” Offill added. “I have to thank Brandon Ikenberry, and Alex Johnson for going racing with us and giving me a good car.”

Moving forward on this end of the year excursion, Offill is excited to welcome back Crew Chief, Dillon Paddock, who stepped away due to other obligations back in August.

“I am really excited to get Dillon Paddock back starting this week,” Offill noted. “It will be great to get our whole program back on track after these last few weeks. I do also want to thank everyone that has stepped up and helped out in his absence, we wouldn’t have been able to race with their help.”

Kyle Offill would like to thank Country Builders, Ochoco West, Brown and Miller, Maas Bros., Reliable Lumber, Boise Cascade, Offill Family Farms, Weld Wheels, HRP, FK Shocks, Arai America Helmets, Hinchman Racewear, Maxim Chassis, and B. Scadden Design for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 24, Wins: 1, Top 5’s: 2, Top 10’s: 6

ON TAP: Offill is slated to make his Huset’s Speedway debut this weekend.

 

 

KCP Racing and Gio Scelzi Poised For More PA Action This Week

PETERSEN MEDIA- Though the Tuscarora 50 was rough on Gio Scelzi and KCP Racing, the youngster from Fresno, CA is already looking to put the event behind him as the team gears up for another big week of action in the Keystone State.

“Thursday night went really well for our race team, but Friday and Saturday the track got really slick, and it is a slick like no other there,” Gio Scelzi said. “It is something we all will work to get better on, but none of us are worried about it moving forward.”

The big three-day event that was sanctioned with the All Stars saw Scelzi get off to a great start on Thursday night. Earning quick time honors in his qualifying group aboard the Logan Contractors Supply, Inc./Aspen Aire/Royal Flooring backed no. 18 machine, Scelzi’s second place finish in his heat race would propel him into the Dash.

Running fourth in the Dash, Scelzi would roll off of the starting grid from the seventh position for the first feature event of the busy weekend. On a track that held a lot of moisture and built up a cushion, Scelzi would make the most of his night.

On the high-speed facility, Scelzi would do a great job of working his way into the Top-Five as he opened the weekend up with a fourth-place finish.

As the weekend carried into Friday night, the Port Royal Speedway surface would start to show signs of wear with a ton of cars packed into the pit area for the historic event.

Timing in fourth fastest in his group on Friday and running second in his heat, Scelzi would find himself back in the 15th starting position for the feature event. On the extremely slick surface, Scelzi would struggle to get going as he slipped back and ultimately pulled off.

Credited with a 26th place finish, Scelzi and company would look to have a strong run during the big show on Saturday night.

Timing in 10th fastest in his time trial flight on Saturday, Scelzi would pocket a second-place finish in his heat race and safely transfer into the 50-lap Tuscarora 50 feature event.

Lining up 13th on another extremely slick surface, Scelzi would have his hands full as he tried to find grip. Slipping back to 19th at the halfway point when the competition yellow flew, Scelzi and the KCP Racing team would make some adjustments for the final 25 laps, but he still would be mired in the field as he ended his weekend with a 20th place finish.

“That place is really tough when it gets that slick, and it isn’t anything we have dealt with a s a team until the Tusky,” Scelzi said. “I believe in Tyler Swank, and know that we can put our heads together and figure it out. We have another busy week ahead in PA, and I am really excited.”

KCP Racing would like to thank Logan Contractors Supply Inc., Aspen Aire, Royal Flooring, Bobcat, Ted’s Body Shop, Team Excavating, Cox Design and Fabrication, Armor Electric Company, TammyHeckart.com, Quality Traffic Control, BergenKDV, and BK Racing Titanium for their support this season.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-15, Wins-0, Top-5’s- 6, Top 10’s-8

ON TAP: Scelzi and KCP Racing will be at Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday night, possibly BAPS Motor Speedway on Thursday night, at Williams Grove on Friday night, and back at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night for the Dirt Classic.

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (September 15, 2020) – It has gone by in a flash it seems.

And now the 2020 racing season at Dodge City Raceway Park concludes with Saturday night’s Eighth Annual Jerry Soderberg Championship Memorial atop the 3/8-mile clay oval in southwest Kansas.

It has been a condensed season that didn’t get under way until June 20, more than two-and-a-half months after the originally scheduled April 4 season opener, due to COVID-19 concerns.

And now, three quick months later since the green flag finally flew at DCRP, five racers will earn their championship crowns on Saturday night.

Amantea Scores Another Podium Finish at Spirit Auto Center Speedway to Wrap Up Third Place in Championship Standings

Inside Line Promotions - WINCHESTER, Va. (Sept. 15, 2020) - Joey Amantea locked up a third-place finish in the wingless micro sprint championship standings at Spirit Auto Center Speedway behind the strength of his 16 th top-five finish of the year Friday night.

It served as a prelude to his second career start with the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars on Saturday, when he finished 13 th during his debut at Winchester Speedway.

"I really wanted to get a win this year at Spirit Auto Center Speedway, but overall, it wasn't a bad week," he said. "We've been so consistent all year and this just further shows how good we can be."

Amantea kicked off Friday night at the oval in Swedesboro, N.J., where he won a wingless micro sprint heat race from the seventh starting position. He then started eighth in the feature and passed five cars to finish on the podium in the third spot.

"I knew from the early goings of the night we had a good shot at winning with how we ran in the heat," he said. "We had a shot at second after a late restart, but we just missed it at the line. We came into the night with the goal of third in points and we were able to make that happen."

He then switched gears and strapped in behind the wheel of the Burke Family Racing No. 54 360ci non-wing sprint car at Winchester Speedway. Amantea advanced one position in a heat race to finish fourth and secure the eighth starting spot in the A Main.

With it being his first career visit to the track and with limited experience behind the wheel in the division, Amantea struggled to adapt to changing track conditions as he finished 13th. However, in two career starts with the series he has yet to finish outside of the top 15.

"I was really good in the heat race, but I struggled with handling in the car during the feature," he said. "I took a chance in the feature and tried to run the top on the start, but it didn't work."

This week Amantea will take part in two nights of wingless micro sprint racing, beginning with his first trip of the season to Shellhamer Dirt Track in Shoemakersville, Pa., on Wednesday before closing out the week at Hamlin Speedway in Hamlin, Pa., on Saturday.

"It's been over a year since we went out to Shellhamer's so it'll be fun to see that place again," he said. "The goal is to put together two solid nights and hopefully we can add another win to our 2020 total before all is said and done."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 11 - Spirit Auto Center Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J. - Heat race: 1 (7); Feature: 3 (8).

Sept. 12 - Winchester Speedway in Winchester, Va. - Heat race: 4 (5); Feature: 13 (8).

Hill Sees Debut at I-80 Speedway End Early in Hard Crash

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 15, 2020) - Alex Hill's return to racing after an extended layoff was relatively short-lived when she was involved in a hard crash on the opening lap of her qualifier with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour last Saturday night at I-80 Speedway.

Hill was racing to the inside of Lynton Jeffrey in turn three on the first lap when their cars made contact, sending Hill's car into a series of flips from the inside guardrail almost to the outside wall, where her car landed on its tires and she crawled from it uninjured.

"I'm not really sure what happened," Hill said. "I had a really good start and was trying to pass Lynton on the inside. I guess it was just a racing deal. I remember closing my eyes when my car started to flip on the bottom of the track and I was surprised when I opened them to see that I landed near the top of the track.

"I had a headache for a while afterwards, but I'm fine now. I was surprised the car wasn't damaged more because it felt like a pretty hard crash. I figured the frame would be bent, but it wasn't."

Hill's first visit to I-80 Speedway began with a sixth-place finish in her heat race.

"I had kind of a bad start," she said. "We were in turn three when they told us we were going green and it caught me a bit off guard. But that's not an excuse because it was the same for everyone.

"I got passed by a couple of cars right away. But as the race went on I got a little more used to the track. I was gaining on the car in front of me and I think I would've gotten that spot back if we had one more lap."

Hill will move on to one of her biggest races this year - the 10 th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo.

"I'm excited about racing at Lucas Oil," she said. "It's one of my favorite tracks. I wish we raced there more often. There will be a lot of cars there and the racing will be tough. It's a great event."

Sept. 12 - I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. - Heat race: 6 (4); Qualifier: DNF (10); B Main: DNS (-).

Sams III Ties Second-Best Result of ASCS National Tour Season During First Trip to I-80 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 15, 2020) - Danny Sams III tied his second-best outing of the season with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour last Saturday during his debut at I-80 Speedway.

The Sams LaMountain Racing driver rallied from 21st to 13 th during the Casey's General Store Midwest Fall Brawl. The eight positions gained were the third most of any driver in the main event.

Sams III began the night by contending for a heat race win early before finishing fourth.

"I was passing for the lead about four laps in when the caution came out," he said. "Blake Hahn and Dylan Westbrook were right on us. It was a four-car battle for the lead and I ended up on the short end of the stick."

An eighth-place finish in a qualifier relegated Sams III to a B Main. He dropped back a few spots early, but rallied in the closing laps to claim the third-and-final transfer position into the A Main.

"At the end we made a bunch of passes on the last restart that put us in a position to transfer to the A Main," he said. "I went way up against the fence and got all my positions back. We passed for the final transfer coming out of turn four to the checkered flag."

That lined the Rookie of the Year contender up on the inside of the 11 th row for the main event.

"I was able to find a groove on the bottom of turns one and two," he said. "In turns three and four I was trying everything, but in turns one and two that's where I was beating everyone."

Sams III methodically worked his way to a 13th-place effort.

"It felt good," he said. "We struggled at the beginning of the night and made it hard on ourselves. To find speed in the race car that we can build on for next time was great."

Next up is the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo.

"I went there last year and we got crashed," he said. "Every time we got going something would happen. I'm looking forward to this year. We have some notes in the book. Hopefully we can get the car where we need it to be since I have experience at the track, unlike a lot of the tracks we've gone to this year."

West Jr. Rebounds to Score Career-Best ASCS Mid-South Result at I-30 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Sept. 15, 2020) - Jeffrey West Jr. enjoyed a fast race car last Saturday at I-30 Speedway, which hosted the ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Lone Star Region during the Ralph Henson Memorial.

West Jr., who is ranked third in the ASCS Mid-South Region championship standings during his rookie season in a sprint car, charged from seventh to second place in a heat race.

"We hit the setup pretty good and the car felt great," he said. "I was able to put it where I wanted. It was the best we've been there. On the first lap going through turns three and four I dove to the bottom and passed about three to get to third. Two of them tangled so I was up to third on Lap 2. A lap or two after the restart I got a good run down the straightaway and dove under the second-place driver into turn one and hooked the bottom really good."

West Jr. made the feature redraw, but this event featured a pole shuffle. He competed in it for the first time in his career and lost his two-lap shootout with Howard Moore, placing West Jr. third on the feature starting grid.

"Going into the first turn we were a little too free," he said. "I got hit from behind in a racing deal. That caused me to spin so I had to go straight to the back. I restarted 20th and was able to get through three or four cars pretty quick running the bottom. We had a couple of cautions in the middle of the race. I was able to keep picking positions up as the feature went on. Toward the end I started running down a group running fifth through eighth, but we ran out of time."

West Jr. battled to overcome the early incident as he recorded a ninth-place finish. It was his best series result and top outing at the track.

"It's definitely a good confidence booster," he said. "We've struggled recently so we needed that. And that field was great. If we can be competitive with them we'll be good."

West Jr. will take this weekend off before competing on Sept. 26 at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark.

Old School Racing's Tankersley Set for Season Debut With World of Outlaws

Inside Line Promotions - HIGHLANDS, Texas (Sept. 15, 2020) - Channin Tankersley will join the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series for a pair of races this weekend, marking his first time competing with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt' since April 2018.

The Old School Racing competitor is slated to race on Friday at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla., and on Saturday at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, during the Texas Outlaw Nationals.

"It's nice to have a little bit of familiar ground," he said. "We know roughly where to start, but the 410 deal is so much different than our 360."

Tankersley captured his career-best World of Outlaws result of 17 th during a three-race stint with the series in April 2018. It had been nine years since he raced with the series prior to that.

While this weekend marks his season debut with the Outlaws, Tankersley has earned one top five and two top 10s in four 410ci winged sprint car starts this year.

"We have a little bit of experience," he said. "It's just trying to get acclimated to it; just the balance of the car. You have 200 more horsepower and 100 less pounds in front of the motor plate. That makes a big difference. You might do something in a 360 and then have to back that off for the 410.

"I would like to run around the top 10. If I could do that this weekend I'd be tickled to death."

Carney II Captures Career-Best World of Outlaws Result at Dodge City

Inside Line Promotions - DODGE CITY, Kan. (Sept. 15, 2020) - John Carney II posted his career-best World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series result last Friday during the Boot Hill Showdown opener at Dodge City Raceway Park.

The SawBlade.com Xiphos saw blade and South Plains Towing sponsored driver, who was piloting a car for Scott Brown, finished 12th on Friday before recording a 14th-place result on Saturday.

"I think it went very well considering the company," Carney II said. "We were a little too tight both nights, but we changed some things around and we got a little better each time we hit the track. We have things pointed in the right direction."

Carney II qualified 14th quickest to open the action on Friday. He then advanced from fifth to third place in a heat race, which gave him the eighth starting position in the main event.

"The first lap I wasn't expecting the track to be that tight," he said. "The track got heavier before the main event. It caught almost everyone off guard because everyone was tight on entry. The first lap I drove through a hole in turn three and it shot me up the track. I lost seven or eight spots. Had I not bounced up the track I really feel like I could have finished sixth or seventh. Even though it was tight on entry, the car was really good. The restarts were really good for us because we passed a car each time."

Carney II rebounded from the early miscue by rallying to a 12th -place finish.

He followed that up on Saturday by timing in 12th quickest, maneuvering from fourth to third place in a heat race and placing 14 th in the main event.

"We weren't as competitive the second night," he said. "We were too tight against the cushion and fought that the whole race. But we were right there racing at the back of the top 10 with World of Outlaw drivers. We were within reach of the fastest guys in the world."

Carney II will resume World of Outlaws competition this Friday at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla., and Saturday at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, during the Texas Outlaw Nationals.

"We want to improve on our finishes from last weekend," he said. "With the format we have to get a little better at timing in. Our program is pretty close. It's really down to us fine-tuning. I run well at Lawton and Devil's Bowl. Not that that gives me any advantage, but at least I'll be comfortable with the tracks."

Cisney Charges to Career-Best All Star Run During Tuscarora 50

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 15, 2020) - Dylan Cisney produced his career-best Tuscarora 50 performance last weekend during the famed event at his home track.

Port Royal Speedway hosted the three-day Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 event, in which Cisney recorded a pair of top-five finishes. His third-place run during Saturday's finale was the best outing of his career in the marquee event as well as his top result with the All Stars.

The event started on Thursday when Cisney qualified 31st quickest and finished where he started - seventh - in a heat race. He then rallied from 12th to sixth place in the B Main to narrowly miss a transfer into the main event. Cisney was awarded a provisional and he made the most of it, charging from 25th to 12th - the third-most positions gained.

"On Thursday it was a different track and threw everyone off," he said. "It had been slick all year and we got a fast track. Thursday was tough. It was fast the whole time. Even through the feature it was pretty much wide open the whole time. For taking a provisional, that's about as good as you can ask for."

Cisney continued to improve on Friday, timing in 14th quickest and fourth in his group to garner the pole position in a heat race. He won the heat to lock into a dash. A fifth-place finish in the dash lined him up on the outside of the fifth row for the A Main.

"We really took off better at the beginning of the race than I thought we were going to," he said. "Even starting 10th the best cars are right there. I was hoping to hang in there and pass a couple of cars and get a solid top 10. We took right off on the start and before halfway we were up to fourth. Then the straps broke on the rear of the nose wing and let the nose wing fall back. It was catching a bunch of air. That was right before halfway once we got into fourth. If that hadn't happened we would have been right there for that win."

Cisney hung on for the fourth-place finish despite the struggle toward the end of the race.

"That was huge," he said. "Myself and the team felt great all day Saturday. That was the best we've done on the Night Before the 50. It's tough to go into any big races second guessing anything. To get through it with a good night and not have any problems with anything other than our nose wing issue was huge."

Saturday's event finale also started on the right foot for Cisney, who qualified 25th quickest overall and made the heat race inversion in his group. Once again he won a heat race from the pole to make the feature redraw. Cisney pulled the No. 5 to line up on the inside of the third row for the 50-lap race.

"I was hoping to maintain the first half," he said. "The track was still pretty fast up on the fence. The B Main and non-qualifier races helped slow it down and widen it out. It was really a guessing game for what you wanted to do with your car. We knew you'll probably have to be a little tight at the beginning to be there at the end and just suffer through it. The goal was to maintain, save your tires and be in a position to have a chance at it the last 25 laps.

"I felt like we kept getting better and better the entire race. I think me, Anthony (Macri) and Lance (Dewease) were all pretty even. If I could have got by Macri on the last restart and stayed clear of him we might have had a shot to do something with Lance, but it would have been tough in clean air. Every lap of the race our car kept getting better and better and I could run it harder than before."

Cisney climbed to third and he battled with Macri for the runner-up position for several laps in the closing stage before settling for the third-place performance.

"It's right up there," Cisney said. "It's not a win, but it's the best we've ever done in a big race like that. It's our best finish in an All Star race. It's really huge for me and my whole team, giving us a lot of momentum going into big events coming up."

Cisney plans on racing this Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., during the Jack Gunn Memorial and Saturday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., during the Dirt Classic with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1.

Sides Motorsports Unable to Dodge Misfortune at Dodge City

Inside Line Promotions - DODGE CITY, Kan. (Sept. 15, 2020) - Misfortune hampered Sides Motorsports last weekend during the Boot Hill Showdown at Dodge City Raceway Park.

The team had two cars competing during the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader with Tim Kaeding joining team owner Jason Sides.

Kaeding qualified fourth quickest, placed second in a heat race and won the dash to garner the pole position for the A Main on Friday.

"He was pretty damn good; qualified decent, made the dash and won the dash," Sides said. "On the start Jacob (Allen) got by him and he ran second for a while. He said on one of the restarts someone came in and body slammed him and took him to the wall. That lost him a spot or two. We had a little miscommunication on how much fuel to put in it and he ran out of fuel with a few laps to go running sixth."

Kaeding followed the 18th-place outing up by timing in seventh quickest on Saturday. He finished third in a heat race to miss making the dash by only one position. That lined him up seventh for the main event.

"I'm not sure if he ran over something," Sides said. "The right rear tire was low on pressure. It got on the sidewall and ripped the sidewall out of it. He was running seventh at that time. It sucks because he could have had a top 10 both nights."

Kaeding rebounded from the problem to place 11th.

Sides improved his results from Friday to Saturday, qualifying ninth quickest and finishing fourth in a heat race before ending the night 13 th in the main event.

"The track was heavy and wet without much passing on Friday, even later in the night when we got into the feature," he said. "The modifieds seemed like they churned it up to make it wetter than it was in the heat races. We were a little tight every time we had a restart. We got to 12th and had a restart on the outside. We ran up the track and lost two spots. The next time we had a restart the same thing happened and we finished 14 th.

"We weren't bad on Saturday, but when you're that far back in traffic everything seems so much more crucial to get a better start. You get behind someone and it wants to take off on you on the first corner. But you have to get what you can on the starts because once you get strung out that's all there is."

Sides is heading south this weekend to compete on Friday at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla., and Saturday at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, during the Texas Outlaw Nationals.

"I look forward to Lawton," he said. "I haven't been there in 20 years. I know I ran some ASCS races there from 1996 to 2000. Watching the All Star race there earlier this year it looked like they had a good race. And it's always a fun time at Devil's Bowl. It's a fun track. It really picks up speed in turns three and four. It's more technical in turns one and two."

Dominic Scelzi Posts Career-Best Result at Dodge City Raceway Park

Inside Line Promotions - DODGE CITY, Kan. (Sept. 15, 2020) - Dominic Scelzi scored his career-best result at Dodge City Raceway Park and he tied his season-best outing with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Saturday during the Boot Hill Showdown finale.

Scelzi recorded a seventh-place showing, which was his fourth top 10 of the season with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt.'

The start of both nights mirrored each other with Scelzi qualifying 13 th quickest and starting fifth in a heat race. He finished in that position on Friday to lock into the 13th starting position for the A Main.

"The first night the track was pretty locked down and hard to pass," he said. "You couldn't get off the bottom. Running around the bottom guys would get tight and I'd pass them that way. I got to eighth and we had to restart on the outside. I got tight and fell back to 11th.

"The second night it was a little bit slicker. We were able to get a spot in the heat race, which started me 10th in the feature. I got a really good start and was able to rip around the guy who started inside of me to be in ninth. Then I passed Jacob Allen by rolling the bottom in turns three and four to get into eighth. Tim Kaeding blew a right rear tire with a couple of laps to go so that moved us to seventh. We were right there on Donny (Schatz) and the guy in front of Donny, but it was really hard to pass."

Scelzi's seventh-place result was his third top 10 in the last seven races with the series.

The team plans to race this Friday and Saturday at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., during the DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and the Midwest Power Series.

Scelzi placed second with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions in August and he finished 11th and seventh, respectively, during World of Outlaws races at Huset's Speedway earlier this month.

"I really like the place; it's super racy," he said. "When they get the surface right it's two lanes all night. I'm looking forward to getting there for two good sized 360 races. We ran well there with the All Stars and ran well with the Outlaws so I want to take some money out of that place this weekend."

LANDON SIMON PARTNERS WITH TRUE NORTH COLLECTIVE FOR 2021 AND BEYOND
Partnership to begin at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO Sept. 17-19


INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 15, 2020 -- Landon Simon and True North Collective ("True North”), a leader in the cannabis industry, have confirmed a partnership through the balance of 2020 and throughout the 2021 season. The newly branded True North Collective sprint car will make its first appearance this weekend at the prestigious tenth annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO, Sept. 17-19 to kick off the partnership.

While marijuana use has become widely embraced, marketing of products and their benefits remain segmented. True North and Landon Simon Racing will blaze the trail with this unprecedented partnership in professional Motorsports.

“We are thrilled to be a sponsor and supporter of Landon Simon this weekend and into the future,” began David Gaylor, CEO and founder of True North. “We know that Landon Simon Racing is a small but successful and aggressive team that competes against many larger competitors in the racing industry. We look forward to our continuing support of LSR throughout all of their racing endeavors this year and next.”

The Tipp City, OH native Simon, 31, earned the Powri Lucas Oil WAR Wild Card Sprint Car championship in 2018. He has owned and operated Landon Simon Racing since 2014 and has raced a variety of USAC, BOSS, MSCS, Powri, and various other series’ races over the years in sprint cars, 410 wing sprints and midgets.

"This is a dream come true for us to be partnered with such an amazing company run by equally amazing people.

About Landon Simon

Landon Simon is an American sprint car driver from Tipp City, Ohio. who was a sprint car fan from the time he was born and even dressed in a Jack Hewitt t-shirt for the drive home from the hospital. He attended his first sprint car race when he was just two weeks old. He was raised around the 120 mph-capable machines and could be found in the race shop trying to mount race tires when he was just three years old. He spent his school years and summer vacations working with the legendary race car driver Jack Hewitt, long-time winged sprint car driver Jimmy Stinson, open wheel veteran Matt Westfall and his father, Chris Simon, who began racing sprint cars in 1990.

His decision to follow in his father's footsteps came about after he was accidentally shot in the chest with a shotgun at a friend's house when he was 17 years old. He was life-flighted to Miami Valley Hospital and spent three days in a coma before he was released. Facing a long road to recovery, Landon decided to pursue his dream of becoming a race car driver. The teen worked hard and turned his dreams into reality by building the first Landon Simon Racing sprint car during his senior year of high school and became part of the third generation of Simon sprint car drivers and mechanics.

In 2008 Landon's rookie year consisted of balancing schoolwork, racing and continued rehabilitation for injuries sustained in the accident. That same year, Landon raced his way to Dayton Area Race Fans (D.A.R.F) Rookie of the Year award, Waynesfield Raceway Park (WRP) Rookie of the Year award and finished No. 8 in WRP points. The following years were spent racing across the country as a hired driver, not only out of the LSR stable, but for Indiana and Ohio-based race teams as well.

In the winter of 2013, Landon's drive and passion for the sport led him to Indianapolis to further his racing career against the best drivers in the country. He now resides in Avon, Indiana with his fiancé and their 4 rescue dogs.

Dodson takes Path Valley win

Doug Dodson had been so close so often earlier this season that it looked like he had to win a race soon. Then a bad crash cast doubt on the rest of the year.

Saturday night at Path Valley Speedway Park, Dodson and his team pushed the crash aftermath aside and grabbed that first win of the year in the 25-lap feature for PA Sprint Series IMCA/RaceSaver cars.

Starting fourth, Dodson passed early leader Larry McVay following a seventh lap caution and led the rest of the way – with the help of some wild moves in lapped traffic on a tacky and fast track – to cross the finish line three seconds ahead of McVay.

From mid-June through mid-July, the PowerMist Racing Fuels/Crockett Log Homes/Fastener Specialties/Ayers Enterprises #20 had scored six finishes of second or third in eight races and looked primed for victory. Then came a wicked flip August 8 at Port Royal that demolished their racer forced the team to resurrect its back-up car and try to make it competitive quickly. Saturday those efforts paid off.

While Dodson was distancing himself from the field in the lead, another battle – for the 2020 Path Valley track championship – was raging behind him. Garrett Bard, who had claimed his 12th RaceSaver win of the season Friday night at Clinton County Speedway, had hit the second turn wall while battling Dodson for the lead in the second heat race, forcing him to start the feature from the rear.

John Walp, defending Path Valley PASS champion, had finished third in his heat, narrowing Bard’s lead in the 2020 points to four. As the race neared its conclusion, Walp was battling Domenic Melair for third place while Bard was charging forward – with the lead in points hanging in the balance.

In the end, Walp was able to win the battle for third while Bard’s charge ended with a sixth-place finish, giving Walp the track championship by a scant two points.

Jake Frye also was able to get past Melair and took fourth place, while Melair hung on for fifth – his fourth top-five in a row.

Bard, Cody Hackenberry, Dave Wickham, Tom Carberry and Donnie Hendershot completed the top 10.

Tom Wise and Dodson were the heat race winners for the 17-car field.

Bard’s run from 17th place to 6th earned him the hard charger award for the night, while Frye also mounted a notable charge, from 11th to 4th.

This Friday (September 18), PASS will make its only 2020 appearance at Williams Grove Speedway (an earlier scheduled race was cancelled because of COVID-19 restrictions), joining the All-Star Circuit of Champions, which will be running the Jack Gunn Memorial/Dirt Classic Qualifier.

On Saturday (September 19) PASS and the Laurel Highlands Sprint Series will co-sanction the 40-lap Nittany Championship at Clinton County Speedway. The race format will be based on that for the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge, with time trials, heat races and a non-qualifiers race. It will pay $800 to win, plus incentives.

Lucas Oil Speedway Spotlight: With memories of "The Rocket," Hahn looks for Hockett-McMillin Memorial repeat


WHEATLAND, MO. (Sept. 15, 2020) - Blake Hahn never got to race against Jesse Hockett, but a lasting impression was formed when a young Hahn watched “The Rocket” drive a non-winged sprint car around Tulsa-area dirt tracks.

“I didn’t know him personally, because I wasn't quite racing sprint cars yet, but I looked up to Jesse,” Hahn said. “He ran a bunch of ASCS (American Sprint Car Series) stuff, so I was able to watch him when I was able to go to the races.

“It stuck out to me that he drove a yellow car and I always loved yellow. Just the way he was able to jump from one car to the next and be as competitive as he was, it was something I looked at. He was a true outlaw, being able to run everything and anything he got into.”

Those memories of Hockett, the legendary sprint car driver from mid-Missouri, made it a special moment when Hahn captured the Jesse Hockett-Daniel McMillin Memorial one year ago at Lucas Oil Speedway. He goes for a repeat this weekend in the 10th annual edition of the open-wheel major.

At least 137 cars, combining the Lucas Oil ASCS Winged Sprints and POWRi Lucas Oil WAR wingless sprints, are entered for three nights of racing beginning on Thursday. Hahn, 25, would like nothing more than to park his yellow No. 52 winged machine in victory lane again in a race that honors the memory of Hockett, who died in a shop accident in 2010, and his cousin and crew chief Daniel McMillin who died in an auto accident in 2006.

“The race gets bigger and bigger every year,” Hahn said. “It’s a prestigious race, paying $10,000 to win, a big race on our schedule. You see a bunch of big names coming just for that race.

“Then the aspect of it being the Hockett Memorial, having Jack Hockett (Jesse’s dad) there, it’s pretty neat. Seeing him on the front straightaway and being able to talk to him after our win, that was pretty neat.”

Hahn said 2019 was nearly a perfect weekend as he won the Thursday preliminary and finished a strong seventh on Friday to lock into a second starting spot for Saturday’s big-money finale.

“We had a fast car all weekend and Saturday were able to capitalize,” Hahn said. “It seemed like everything fell into place.”

Hahn called the preliminary nights crucial in collecting enough points to secure a good starting position in Saturday’s main event.

“You pretty much have to go forward every time you touch the track,” he said of Thursday and Friday. “Being able to start toward the front come Saturday, it makes all the difference with that stiff competition. It seems like with these harder races, if you’re not starting in the first two or three rows, it’s hard to win.”

Just like the name Hockett rings a bell with open-wheel fans, so does the name Hahn. Blake, of Sapulpa, Okla., spent much of his childhood in the pits at Creek County Speedway in the Tulsa-area track owned by his grandfather, Emmett Hahn, a former racer and member of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame.

Emmett Hahn founded the legendary Chili Bowl midget event and the American Sprint Car Series.

Blake’s dad, Tommy, also drove midget and sprint cars. Blake now carries on the family tradition behind the wheel, a place that seems natural to him.

“Pretty much since I was growing up, I wanted to drive a race car,” Blake Hahn said. “My grandpa drove a yellow No. 52 and since my first car, I knew mine was gonna be a yellow 52.”

Hahn raced weekly at Port City Raceway, a Tulsa track for kart, mini-sprint and midget racing that has spawn the careers of several top racers. He raced the ASCS2 mini-sprint national series and beat, among others, Christopher Bell for the championship in 2010. Bell has gone on to race in the NASCAR Xfinity and Cup Series.

Since 2014, Blake Hahn has been a Lucas Oil ASCS regular. He’s looking for a strong finish to what he considers a sub-par season to this point and hopes the Hockett-McMillin Memorial will be the jumpstart he needs.

“We should have better results than we do, but we’re sitting 4th in national points. That’s not too bad considering,” Hahn said. “But I know it can be better. If we do what our team is capable of, we should be able to finish the year out strong.”

Ryan Robinson Goes Back to Back at Marysville Raceway As He Claims ‘Tribute to Gold Cup’

PETERSEN MEDIA: Running a non-points show on Wednesday night as an ode to the postponed Gold Cup Race of Champions in nearby Chico, CA, Ryan Robinson was victorious again at Marysville Raceway as he made a bold move on an early restart to take over the lead which he would never relinquish.

“Marysville was great to us again,” Ryan Robinson said. “Todd, Leroy, and Timmy put together such a good car, they really make it easy to drive and it is great to get another win.”

Timing the Mako Farms, Inc./LP Holdings/RPI backed no. 14w machine in seventh fastest in time trials amongst the 30 cars checked into the pit area, Robinson would hook up in an entertaining battle with Stephen Ingraham that would see him get to the top spot and pick up the win.

Making his way into the redraw, the five-pill put the Forest Hill, CA driver in the third row to start the 25-lap feature event. When the race went green, Robinson would run in the fifth spot during a quick green flag run.

Searching around the track under the yellow, Robinson would buzz around the top to see if there was anyting up there just in case he had to use that line on the restart.

As the green flag was displayed back to the field, the top four all went to the bottom, and Robinson would keep his machine on the high side of the speedway.

As the lead duo got together in turns one and two and stacked the field up, Robinson was hard on the throttle up top and took the race lead as the field stayed under power and the green stayed out.

On the hooked-up Marysville Raceway surface, Robinson would dip back to the bottom groove where he would stay put for the rest of the race. While Andy Forsberg gave chase in the closing laps, Robinson’s car was just better off the corner at both ends of the track and it would aid him to him fifth win of the season.

“Under that yellow I was just searching around seeing if I could get anyone in front of me to try the top and get them off the bottom as it was the dominant line,” Robinson explained. “When everyone dipped low, I went up top to see if it would stick and with the leaders tangling, I came out in the lead and never looked back. I hope we can keep this momentum up as the season starts to come to a close in Nor Cal.”

Weiher Racing would like to thank Mako Farms, Inc., LP Holdings, Roseville Precision, Inc., Escalon Body and Frame, Seth’s Racing Engines, Papa Chuck, Threadz Design, JDS Tile & Construction, Inc., and Morrison Concrete for their support in 2020!

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-15, Wins-4, Top 5’s-8, Top 10’s-10

ON TAP: Robinson and Weiher Racing are set to return to action on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

Tanner Carrick Back on Marysville Raceway Podium

PETERSEN MEDIA: With Marysville Raceway able to run the most consistent schedule in Northern California in 2020, Tanner Carrick adapted well as he picked up another strong finish at the speedway on Wednesday night by way of a third-place run.

“It was another good night for our race team at Marysville Raceway,” Tanner Carrick said. “We had a fast car all night and came home with a strong finish.”

With 30 cars packed into the Marysville Raceway pit area, Carrick would get his night off to a strong start as he timed the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83T entry in eighth fastest in time trials.

Finding himself in the second row of his heat race, it would be imperative that the Lincoln, CA driver win his heat race if he wanted to earn a spot into the nightly redraw.

Having a strong run in his heat, Carrick would indeed take care of business as he raced his way to the win and then pulled the three pill in the redraw,

On the hooked-up Marysville Raceway surface that greeted the field on this night, Carrick would work the bottom of the speedway in the early goings of the feature as he ran in third and chased after the likes of Michael Wasina, and Colby Copeland.

An early restart saw the top five all checkup as the two leaders collided. Making a couple of evasive moves to avoid the fray, Carrick came out of turn two still in the third position as the green lights stayed on.

Chasing after new leader Ryan Robinson and Andy Forsberg, Carrick would try numerous times to get by the duo but the narrow surface made passing extremely difficult.

Able to keep his machine on the podium, Carrick closed the night out with a third-place finish.

“That restart wreck happened right in front of me, and I had very little time to react to avoid it,” he said. “If we could get through that a little better, we have a better shot to win, but still another great night for us.”

Tanner Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, Interstate Oil, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Emerald, Timberworks Construction, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 23, Wins: 2, Top 5’s: 12, Top 10’s: 18

ON TAP: Carrick is set for two nights of action in Nor Cal this week as he will be at Ocean Speedway on Friday night, and Placerville Speedway on Saturday.

Thompson Records Runner-Up Result During Montana Round Up Debut

Inside Line Promotions - GREAT FALLS, Mont. (Sept. 14, 2020) - Tyler Thompson made the most of his first-ever trip to Montana.

Thompson led laps during two of the three nights of the 26th annual Montana Round Up hosted by Electric City Speedway before posting a second-place showing during the event finale a week ago Sunday.

"I felt like it was a good weekend for us," he said. "Three days in a row definitely helped us. The first night it took us a while to get comfortable. By the end of the night we felt comfortable."

The three-day event began on Sept. 4 with Thompson qualifying third quickest in his group. He then advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race, which locked him into the 10th starting position for the A Main.

"We tried to get to the bottom because that seemed like the preferred line," he said. "I struggled getting the car to work down there. I think we fell back to 13th. I finally went to the top and we started working well. We made a lot of progress and charged to seventh. We checked the lap times after the race and had the same times as the leader."

Thompson returned to the oval the following day and nearly mirrored his previous performance, qualifying third quickest in his group and gaining a position in a heat race to finish third. This time that was good enough to make the feature redraw and Thompson pulled the No. 3 to line up third for the main event.

"We had a good car going into that night," he said. "We snuck into the redraw and started third in the main. We got the lead on the first lap. Then we had a caution that bunched us back together. The track was starting to take rubber. I thought we could drive through it, but we spun our tires. That allowed Colton Heath to stay close enough to get a slider on us into turn one. I had to brake for it and then we were in dirty air. I got passed and fell to third. I didn't get into a good rhythm after that.

"Just after the midpoint I hit the wall on the exit of turn four with my right rear and it sucked the right front in. The next lap we went into turn one and the car didn't want to turn."

The damage relegated Thompson to a 15th-place result.

The event concluded on Sept. 6.

"It was actually kind of a struggle," he said. "We were eighth in points going into Sunday and had some engine issues. We couldn't get the eighth cylinder to fire. We started on the pole of our heat race and fell to second, but we ended up winning. We were the last guy to draw in the feature redraw, but ended up getting the No. 1."

The heat race win earned Thompson a spot into the feature redraw and his No. 1 draw put him on the pole for the main event. He led the first 10 laps.

"We weren't as good in dirty air and got passed in traffic," he said. "I couldn't keep up. We came up on one group of cars in a bad spot. I had to get out of the gas. Then around Lap 15 our throttle spring broke. It made it really hard driving with as big of a cushion as there was."

Thompson salvaged a second-place result.

"We were really pleased with the weekend," he said. "I felt like each night we had one of the fastest cars. We made some mistakes, but it was nice to know our car is fast and the engine is running good."

Thompson plans on racing this Thursday at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash., during Thursday Night Thunder presented by the Rayce Rudeen Foundation.

Blake Carrick 5th at Marysville Raceway’s ‘Tribute To Gold Cup’

PETERSEN MEDIA: Though Marysville Raceway’s point season wrapped up a week ago, the track opted to host another Wednesday show to pay tribute to the postponed Gold Cup Race of Champions, and Carrick would perform well at the event as he netted a fifth-place finish.

“We had another solid night at Marysville Raceway,” Blake Carrick said. “We really have ran well at the track all year. I got off to a bit of a slow start during the ‘A’, but we were able to pick up a few positions on the heavy surface and grab a Top-5.”

30 cars packed into the Marysville Raceway pit area for the ‘Tribute to Gold Cup’, and Carrick set his night up well by timing the Conti, Harris, and Sloan/Emerald/Timberworks Construction backed mount in sixth fastest in time trials.

Form the second row of his heat race, the Lincoln, CA driver would record a third-place finish, and by way of his qualifying efforts he would also garner a spot in the all-important redraw.

Pulling the six pill, the Lincoln, CA driver would grid the field from the outside of the third row on a surface that still had a ton of moisture left in it for the 25-lap feature event.

When the race came to life, Carrick would have a hard time making up ground initially as he actually fell back to the eighth spot during an early green flag run.

Following an early restart, Carrick would settle in and run a very patient race as passing was difficult on this night. Able to work his way back forward, Carrick would find himself back in the Top-5 late in the race.

Chasing after older brother, Tanner, and Shane Golobic, Carrick would pick up another strong result at the northern California facility as he finished in the fifth position.

“We had a good car, it was just really hard to pass on Wednesday night,” Carrick said. “Really looking forward to getting back to Ocean Speedway and Placerville Speedway this weekend, two tracks that we have also been able to win at this year.”

Blake Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, Interstate Oil, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Emerald, Timberworks Construction, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support

Kaleb Johnson Races to Runner-Up Result at Jerry Richert Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (Sept. 14, 2020) - Kaleb Johnson equaled his career-best finish in a 360ci sprint car with a second-place run during the 20th annual Jerry Richert Memorial last Saturday at Cedar Lake Speedway.

"We had a pretty good night," said Johnson, who also finished second at Cedar Lake Speedway two years ago. "Our car ran well and we had a little luck, which also helps. I knew it would be tough to beat Justin Henderson. I was behind him on the last restart when I spun my tires and he pulled away."

Johnson's evening got off to a good start when he drew the pole starting position for his Midwest Power Series heat race, which was delayed briefly due to a light drizzle and reworking of the track.

"The track was still pretty tacky from the rain," he said. "I was able to get the lead at the start. I knew Justin would probably challenge me and he got pretty close, but I was able to get the win."

Johnson drew the fourth starting position for the 22-car A Main.

"I battled for third and fourth for the first five or six laps," he said. "There were a lot of cautions and a couple of red flags. But then there was a stretch of about 10 to 15 laps toward the end where we were able to have a long green-flag run.

"I tried to run the bottom for about the first half of the race and that seemed to go okay. But then Justin and Brooke (Tatnell) were in front of me and battling up top. I figured that was probably where I should be so I moved up.

"We got into pretty heavy traffic when there was a caution with about four laps to go. That played into my favor because my car was getting really tight from the dirty air from the traffic. I hit the wall once. We moved up to second when Brooke broke an oil line and pulled in during that caution. I had a fun battle with Jody Rosenboom at the end. He passed me on the bottom for second coming to the white flag. My car was a little better up top in turns one and two and I was able to sneak by him going down the backstretch and then took his line away in turns three and four."

Johnson expects to close out his 2020 racing season this Friday and Saturday at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., during the DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores featuring the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and the Midwest Power Series.

"I'm excited to return to Huset's, especially after we raced well there a couple of weeks ago," he said. "There will be a lot more cars there this time and a lot more money on the line, too. It should be fun."

Crockett Earns Season-Best Second-Place Finish During Midwest Fall Brawl

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 14, 2020) - Roger Crockett led a majority of the Casey's General Store Midwest Fall Brawl at I-80 Speedway last Saturday before he finished with a season-best runner-up result.

It marked Crockett's second podium of the season with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour and helped him maintained the second position in the championship standings.

"We unloaded fast and the car was really good," he said. "We felt great in hot laps and really good in the heat. We didn't get a great start in the qualifier, but got a couple of spots running where nobody else was."

Crockett won his heat race from third and he advanced from fifth to third place in a qualifier to rank fourth in event points. That lined him up on the outside of the second row for the main event.

"We got the lead early and I had no clue we were that far gone," he said. "I didn't feel like the bottom was very fast. I had patience and was really making sure I was in the moisture on exit."

Crockett took the lead on Lap 5 and built a several-second advantage on the field before a caution bunched everyone up.

"That yellow flag came out, which I didn't want to see," he said. "I was contemplating changing my line. At that point you have to stick with what got you there. I kept running the bottom. When you're leading it's really hard to change your line up."

Crockett led until Lap 26 when Sam Hafertepe Jr., who had found the track cleaned off toward the top, claimed the top spot. Crockett rallied to regain the lead for Lap 30 and Lap 31 before Hafertepe Jr. led the final few laps.

"Long story short, it would have been nice to win, but I think we did have the fastest car all night long," Crockett said. "It's that much harder to take on a track that is wide enough to pass. You have to be happy with speed, too.

"It's been a frustrating year. I think we've only run 14 360 races. I feel like we've been fast enough to win 10 of them. We haven't got ourselves in the correct position to win races. It's a tough sport sometimes to find your way to the front. That's why when I have the opportunity to win and I don't make it happen it stings. We've been happy with our car all year long. Our shocks, our frame, our motor, everything is working together extremely well."

Crockett returns to action this Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., during the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. He finished in the top 10 all three nights last year.

"We're going into a place we've run good at," he said. "I know we're one of the cars to beat. That facility is phenomenal. It is a drawn out few days with so many cars, but that's part of it. There's a lot of time to be a race fan, too."

Kerry Madsen Leads Big Game Motorsports to Top 10 During Each Night of Tuscarora 50

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 14, 2020) - Kerry Madsen was one of only four drivers to capture a top-10 result during all three nights of the famed Tuscarora 50 last weekend at Port Royal Speedway.

The Killer Instinct Crossbows sponsored driver guided Big Game Motorsports to a runner-up result on Thursday, a sixth-place finish on Friday and a ninth-place showing on Saturday during the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions tripleheader.

"You have to be perfect at these big races to win," Madsen said. "The balance is there. I feel like we had our race car really good all three nights."

The action began on Thursday with Madsen setting quick time during qualifying. He then advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race and placed second in a dash to line up fourth for the A Main.

"I felt our first night was really good and we had a really good race car," he said. "We battled with Tony Stewart for a bit of the way and finally got him at the end."

The second-place performance was Madsen's 13th top five of the season.

The team timed in 13th quickest overall on Friday. A third-place result in a heat race locked Madsen into a dash, which he won to garner the pole position for the main event.

"On Friday we were really good in the dash," he said. "Then on the first lap of the feature I lost a couple of spots. We faded a bit there at the end. The track was super slick. It was good though because we wanted to get some laps on a slick track to dial our car in for Saturday night."

Madsen finished sixth and he continued to run well during Saturday's finale. He qualified third quickest overall out of the 50-plus drivers. A third-place run in a heat race gave him the eighth starting position for the 50-lap main event.

"We were really good early, but the last half the left rear tire shrunk and we didn't have the speed we had before," he said. "It just got worse as the race went on. That was a shame to be honest."

Madsen salvaged a ninth-place finish. It was his 31st top 10 of the season.

The team is slated to race this Wednesday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., before tackling Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 races on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., for the Jack Gunn Memorial and Saturday at Lincoln Speedway for the Dirt Classic.

"We were really good at Williams Grove last time so we have confidence and our car has been good at Lincoln so we'll see what happens," Madsen said.

Zearfoss hard charges through Night Before the Tuscarora 50 field

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (September 14, 2020) – Despite Brock Zearfoss’ 2020 Tuscarora 50 campaign ending shy of personal expectation, the former Port Royal Speedway track champion and Jonestown-native managed to make his presence known and put on a show during the Night Before the Tuscarora 50 main event on Friday evening, September 11.

Lining up 27th on the 30-lap grid after utilizing a Port Royal Speedway provisional, forced to do so after finishing eighth during the evening’s B-Main, Zearfoss wasted little time and hit the gas in a hurry, eventually charging through the field to finish 12th at the final checkers. Impressive enough, Zearfoss’ head-turning rally secured the evening’s Hard Charger Award for advancing the most feature positions.

The “Jonestown Jet” kicked-off Tuscarora weekend with a 16th-place finish on Thursday, eventually capping the three-day All Star Circuit of Champions program with an 18th-place finish during the 50-lap, $53,000-to-win finale. Zearfoss secured his place in the big dance by transferring through the evening’s B-Main.

“I don’t think the weekend ended how we wanted, but we put together some highlights and worked our way into Saturday’s show, so we can’t hang our heads too low,” Brock Zearfoss said, driver of the Brock Zearfoss Racing, Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., BAPS Auto Paints & Supply, Meckley’s Limestone Products, Berkebile Oil Company, Klick Lewis Cars, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, X-1 Race Cars, No. 3Z sprint car. “I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work over the weekend. Even when things got tough, they kept motivated. I don’t think I could find a better group to work with. We have another big weekend ahead. I’m excited to get back to work on Wednesday at Lincoln.”

Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing will continue their 2020 campaign with another massive weekend in Pennsylvania Posse Country, this time visiting Lincoln Speedway, BAPS Motor Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway, and Lincoln Speedway in consecutive fashion on Wednesday through Saturday, September 16-19.

Padding the weekend with some extra green, the Lincoln Speedway double carries a $26,900 potential, as Wednesday’s Weldon Sterner Memorial will award $6,900 and Saturday’s annual Dirt Classic will award $20,000. In addition, Williams Grove’s Jack Gunn Memorial/Dirt Classic Qualifier will pay $5,000. The Jack Gunn Memorial and Dirt Classic will feature the All Star Circuit of Champions.

Zearfoss will enter his four-race weekend with a pair of victories on the season, one of which against America’s Series during action at Southern Oklahoma Speedway.

Dietrich highlights Tuscarora starts with top-ten in Night Before the 50

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa.

Michalski caps Tuscarora weekend with runner-up finish in non-qualifier feature

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

PENNDEL, Pa. (September 14, 2020) – Brett Michalski’s Tuscarora 50 campaign started out slow, but found speed in a hurry, ending his three-day stretch against the All Star Circuit of Champions with a runner-up finish during non-qualifiers feature action on Saturday, September 12. The Penndel, Pennsylvania-native led eight laps of the $2,000-to-win program, doing his best to hold off eventual winner and Pennsylvania hotshoe, Lucas Wolfe.

The runner-up finish equals Michalski’s best outcome of the season, taking full advantage of the opportunity to race again after missing a Tuscarora 50 transfer position in the evening’s B-Main by three spots.

“It was a great way for our team to end the weekend. We wanted to make the Tuscarora 50, but for us to have another opportunity to race and earn more money worked out for the better,” Brett Michalski said, driver of the JR Michalski Heating & Air Conditioning/Irish Rover Station House/York by Johnson Controls/Wood Services/Richboro Pub/Maxim Chassis/Don Ott Racing Engines/Kriner Engines/Penske Shocks/VP Racing Fuels/Hoosier Tire/Wings Unlimited/Racer’s Used and New Parts Warehouse/CR Graphix/SC Signs/Pyrotect/Hinchman Indy/No. 73B sprint car. “Hats off to my team for busting their butts all weekend. We found ourselves scrambling a lot on Saturday to keep the car ready, but they pulled through and kept us on track.”

Brett Michalski and Brett Michalski Motorsports will continue their 2020 campaign with a potential four-race weekend in Pennsylvania Posse Country, set to visit Lincoln Speedway, BAPS Motor Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway, and once again at Lincoln Speedway, on Wednesday through Saturday, September 16-19. The Lincoln Speedway double carries a $26,900 potential, as Wednesday’s Weldon Sterner Memorial will pay $6,900-to-win and Saturday’s annual Dirt Classic will pay $20,000-to-win. In addition, Williams Grove’s Jack Gunn Memorial/Dirt Classic Qualifier will award $5,000.

Michael earns back-to-back top-tens in Attica and Fremont starts

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FREMONT, Ohio (September 14, 2020) – The “Texas Traveler” T.J. Michael put together another impressive stretch in the Buckeye State during the recent weekend, this time securing back-to-back top-ten performances during action at Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway on Friday and Saturday, September 11-12.

Michael kicked-off his two-day swing with a rally from 15th to finish tenth during action at Attica on Friday, September 11, trumping that result with a fourth-place run at Fremont Speedway on Saturday, September 12. Michael’s Fremont outcome commenced from the exact same position, locking himself into the $5,000-to-win Attica/Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) season finale with a heat race victory.

Top-ten finishes in northwest Ohio have become a regularity for the Plano, Texas-native, even doing so against Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions during Attica Ambush action on Friday, September 4; Michael finished tenth from row 12.

“Hats off to this entire team. Things are clicking right now and we couldn’t be more excited,” Michael said, driver of the Advanced Architectural Stone, Crown Battery, Fremont Fence Company, Pro-Tech Services, Wood Heating and Air Conditioning, Kear’s Speed Shop, Wings Unlimited, Big D’s Pizza, No. 8M sprint car. “We’re always trying to find ways to improve and build speed. With sprint car racing, you’re always learning. It’s up to us to put our notes to good use, and that’s exactly what we’ve been doing. That next win is well-within reach.”

Michael and Michael Motorsports will continue their 2020 campaign with a Saturday night start at either Fremont Speedway or Atomic Speedway. A decision will be finalized later in the week.

Westfall with podium streak at Gas City

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (September 14, 2020) – For the second consecutive weekend, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports found themselves on the podium at Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, Indiana, and for the second consecutive weekend, Westfall and Ray Marshall ended action third in the running order, maintaining a spot inside the top three the entire distance after starting from the pole position.

Missing the jump on eventual winner, Clinton Boyles, Westfall navigated the Gas City quarter-mile from the second spot until lap 20, soon forced to hand over the position to regular rival, Scotty Weir.

“Not getting the win after starting from the pole is a little frustrating, but hanging on to finish on the podium again says a lot about this team and our level of consistency. We certainly have something figured out at Gas City,” Matt Westfall said, driver of the Ray Marshall-owned/Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car. “I can’t thank Ray Marshall enough for this opportunity. Ray gives us what we need to be competitive and I’m very fortunate to be in this position. I owe him a few more wins so we’ll do what we can to make that happen soon.”

Other recent results include finishing 17th during USAC National Sprint Car competition at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, Indiana, on Saturday, September 12. A troubled qualifying attempt ultimately resulted in Westfall participating in the evening’s C-Main and Semi-Feature. Although missing a transfer position in the Semi, Westfall earned a provisional starting position and went on to rally from 23rd to 17th.

Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will finalized plans for the coming weekend later in the week. Tentative plans include rejoining USAC during starts at Terre Haute and Tri-State on Friday and Saturday, September 18-19.

Abreu on top in Tuscarora 50 finale before mechanical woes force early retirement

Dates: Thursday through Saturday, September 10th-12th
Event: 53rd Annual Tuscarora 50
Series: All Star Circuit of Champions
Track: Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pennsylvania)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finishes (Start):
Thursday: 17th (8th)
Friday: 5th (12th)
Saturday: 23rd (2nd)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (September 14, 2020) - Driving right by Central Pennsylvania legend and heavy weekend favorite, Lance Dewease, St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu was well on his way to a $53,000 top prize on Saturday night during Port Royal Speedway’s Tuscarora 50 finale, but with less than 15 laps remaining in the 50-lap contest, universal joint issues surfaced forcing Abreu to retire early; Abreu was scored 23rd.

The driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Wiser Golf/J. Davidson Scrap Metal/Self Made Racing/Dancer Logistics/The Wiser Group/Whistle Stop Bar and Grill/Salty’s BBQ/Stadelhofer Construction/No. 24 sprint car started second on the Tuscarora 50 finale grid by way of feature redraw, earning the draw opportunity after winning his respective heat race.

“We are definitely disappointed, but it was great to show where we stand and lead the Tuscarora 50. Hats off to my team. I’m proud of everyone. It was a fun weekend and I’m already looking forward to getting back there,” Rico Abreu said, a six-time sprint car winner in 2020 including a $10,000 victory at Attica Raceway Park. “I want to thank all of the fans for coming out and supporting the Tuscarora 50. To be a part of an event of that size is really special. Pennsylvania fans are some of the best fans in the country and we love getting the chance to see everyone. I can’t wait to see everyone again.”

The highlight of Abreu’s three-day Tuscarora 50 visit occurred during preliminary action on Friday, September 11, when the recent All Star Circuit of Champions winner finished fifth after starting 12th. Abreu kicked-off the evening with a heat race victory.

Unfortunately for Abreu, his Port Royal Speedway tripleheader kicked-off similar to how it ended, as tire issues during Thursday’s main event forced Abreu to retire to the back; he would recover to finish 17th.

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2020 campaign with another pair of All Star Circuit of Champions starts, this time visiting Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway on Friday and Saturday, September 18-19. The Posse Country doubleheader will be headlined with the $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic at Lincoln.

Certainly no stranger to south-central Pennsylvania, Abreu is a recent winner in the Pigeon Hills, scoring Lincoln’s PA Sprint Speedweek payday on June 29.
Additional plans for the coming week will be announced at a later time. Those interested in learning more should follow Rico Abreu on all of his available social media outlets.

It's Hockett-McMillin Week at Lucas Oil Speedway: Some drivers to eye during open-wheel major

WHEATLAND, MO. (Sept. 14, 2020) - The week open-wheel fans in the Midwest have been waiting for has arrived, with the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial set for Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway. A gigantic field of cars will be on hand for three-night speed festival.

As of Monday morning, there were 76 drivers pre-registered in the Lucas Oil ASCS winged sprint portion and 57 for the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR non-wing sprint side of the event.

The race honors the memories of Hockett, from Warsaw, Missouri, who was a star in both the winged and non-wing sprint divisions when he lost his life in a shop accident in 2010. His cousin and crew chief, Daniel McMillin, was killed in an automobile accident in 2006.

“It’s amazing how this race has grown over the years as we honor two of the greats of the sport,” Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said. “Just based on the number of entries, this one is shaping up as the best yet.”

This year there will be no split qualifying nights with all drivers in both the winged and wingless divisions competing both Thursday and Friday. Combined points from heat races, qualifiers, B-mains and A-mains will set the lineup for the top eight of Saturday night’s ASCS $10,000-to-win main event and $3,077-to-win WAR feature.

One year ago, Blake Hahn of Sapulpa, Oklahoma, captured the ASCS main event and Chris Windom of Canton, Illinois, won the WAR Sprint final-night feature.

With the help of ASCS announcer/public relations director Bryan Hulbert and POWRi WAR voice and PR director Allen Staley, here are some “drivers to watch” if you’re looking for a contender throughout the three days of action:

LUCAS OIL ASCS WINGED SPRINTS

The list of contenders has to start with Sam Hafertepe Jr. out of Sunnyvale, Texas. The four-time ASCS National Champion is on his way toward a fifth. He won the Hockett-McMillin Memorial in 2017 and 2018. Blake Hahn out of Sapulpa, Oklahoma, is the defending Hockett-McMillin champion. The driver of No. 52 is fourth in ASCS national points in 2020. Mark Smith, driver of car No. M1 out of Sunbury, Pennsylvania, already has 17 wins overall this season in various series and could surprise, especially considering he was a close second to Hahn a year ago. Ayrton Gennetten of Gravois Mills, Missouri, is having “the strongest year he’s ever had,” Hulbert said. So keep an eye on Gennetten, ninth in last year's Hockett/McMillin, in car No. 3 Seth Bergman has five victories in a limited 2020 schedule and is coming off a runner-up finish a couple of weeks ago at Lake Ozark Speedway. He’s in car No. 23. Scott Bogucki, in No. 28 out of McLaren Vale, South Australia, was 2018 ASCS Rookie of the Year and is sixth overall in this year’s ASCS national tour standings. Dylan Westbrook, of Scotland, Ontario in car No. 47X, is eighth in national points with four top-10 finishes. He was dueling for the lead late in last year’s Hockett/McMillin main event when an accident eliminated him from contention.

POWRi WAR NON-WING SPRINTS

Riley Kreisel of Warsaw, is a home-state favorite in No. 91. The 20-year-old from Hockett’s hometown already is a two-time WAR Champion and leads the 2020 points by a wide margin. He has four wins this season with 10 wins in three years in the series. Garrett Aitken in No. 32 out of Paris, Illinois picked up his first WAR feature win at Tri-City Speedway in August. He was sixth in a Hockett-McMillin preliminary feature and fifth in the final night main event last year. Mario Clouser of Auburn, Illinois has taken car No. 6 to a second in a 2019 Hockett/McMillin prelim and seven on the final night. He’s fourth in 2020 WAR points. Zach Daum in 5D has six career WAR wins, including 2020 triumphs at Lake Ozark Speedway’s non-wing nationals. The Pocahontas, Illinois driver won a prelim feature last year at the Hockett/McMillin. Joe B. Miller of Millersville, Missouri is a McGarry Motorsports Drive with a podium finish at the recent Non-Wing Nationals. Miller has four career WAR wins.

For fans coming to Lucas Oil Speedway for the first time this season, masks are not required, but they and social distancing are encouraged. Hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the facility.

DeCaire Banks $500 With Jennerstown Fast Time

JENNERSTOWN, Pa. – Troy DeCaire has qualifying figured out with the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series presented by Engine Pro.

DeCaire, from Tampa, Fla., sped to his third straight Engine Pro Fast Time Award Saturday evening at Jennerstown Speedway, posting the quickest lap in advance of the third annual David D. Mateer Tribute Race at the half-mile Pennsylvania oval.

The two-time series champion turned a lap of 15.200 seconds (123.632 mph) with the No. 36 Statham Construction Hurricane, just .002 seconds off the sprint car track record held by Brian Gerster.

The scary part? DeCaire wasn’t happy with his car, and yet he was still fastest in the 21-car field.

“We made five laps in hot laps on old tires, so I knew that was part of our issue, but the car didn’t have what I wanted it to have, because I’m always thinking about the race,” DeCaire said. “We started talking track records, though, and I felt like we could beat it. I probably should have run the second (practice) session … but I had the car a little too low. I bottomed out and had to check up coming off (turn) two.

“I was a little tight, so I had to shake it, and we just missed it,” he added. “I think I had a 15.0 or a 14.90 if we’d had this thing set on kill … but I want the big check, so we’re looking to run 30 good ones.”

Saturday’s effort was the fifth fast time of DeCaire’s Must See Racing sprint car career.

While Gerster’s track record remained safe, the Fishers, Ind., native was unable to match DeCaire’s pace at Jennerstown. Gerster ran the second-fastest lap (15.326/122.615) in the Dick Myers Racing No. 50m.

Another Floridian, Joe Liguori, timed in third overall ahead of five-time defending series champion Jimmy McCune and Ohio veteran Charlie Schultz.

Adam Biltz, Kevin Feeney, series point leader Anthony McCune, Tom Jewell and debuting rookie Nolan Allison filled out the top 10 on the speed charts after two-lap qualifications.

Rick Holley, Gerster and DeCaire followed up time trials by winning their respective eight-lap heat races.

By virtue of a five-car inversion spun on the Wheel of Destiny, Charlie Schultz will start on the pole position for the 30-lap American Racer David D. Mateer Tribute Race.

Feature racing at Jennerstown Speedway begins shortly after 8 p.m. ET, with every lap broadcast live via SPEED SPORT TV affiliate Must See Racing TV. Pay-per-view tickets can be purchased for just $18.

Gerster Speeds During Jennerstown Must See Practice

JENNERSTOWN, Pa. (Sept. 12, 2020) – Making his first Must See Racing Sprint Car Series presented by Engine Pro appearance of the season, Brian Gerster topped the speed charts during Saturday practice at Jennerstown Speedway.

Gerster toured the .522-mile oval in 15.755 seconds (119.276 mph) with the No. 50m Dick Myers Racing sprinter to lead a 21-car field for the American Racer David D. Mateer Memorial.

The Fishers, Ind., native and two-time series champion is also the sprint car track record holder at Jennerstown. He’s seeking his 24th career win in the series’ fourth points race of the season.

Florida’s Troy DeCaire followed Gerster on the overall charts, with a lap of 15.822 seconds (118.771 mph) in the No. 36 Statham Construction Hurricane.

Also a two-time champion, DeCaire led the way in the first of two rounds of practice and then elected to forego the second round to make a gear change before Engine Pro Time Trials at 3 p.m. ET.

Ohio’s Charlie Schultz (16.024/117.274) clocked the third-fastest lap, followed by series point leader Anthony McCune and Joe Liguori among the top-five runners.

Adam Biltz, Kevin Feeney, Joey Wyckoff, debuting rookie Nolan Allison and Tom Jewell filled out the top 10.

Five-time defending series champion Jimmy McCune was 12th-quick after motor issues in the first round of practice Saturday afternoon.

Saturday’s David D. Mateer Memorial will be broadcast live on SPEED SPORT Network affiliate Must See Racing TV beginning at 3 p.m. ET with qualifying. Pay-per-view tickets for the event are $18.

Wild Wing Shootout Announced for January 2021 at FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway; 410 c.i. Winged Sprint Cars Take Center Stage Jan. 22-24

QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (September 11, 2020) — Over the past 14 years the Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts has grown into a wildly-successful, January miniseries for Super Late Models, Modifieds, and X-Mods. During that time there’s been a rapidly-rising demand amongst both racers and fans for Sprint Cars to join the fold.

With this in mind, officials are proud to announce the inaugural Wild Wing Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts, set for January 22, 23, and 24, 2021 at FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway. The brand-new event will find 410 c.i. Winged Sprint Cars competing for a $7,000 top prize in the Friday, January 22 opener, while the programs on Saturday and Sunday, January 23 – 24 will each boast a $10,000 winner’s check.

The event is a co-promotion between Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout promoter, Chris Kearns and FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway promoter, Jonah Trussel.

“This has been an idea in our minds for some time now, and with key pieces now in place, we feel that January 2021 is the perfect time to finally make it happen,” Kearns said. “I’ve been talking to insiders from inside the Sprint Car world, and they all agree that this fills a void for both fans and racers. What better way to kick the new Sprint Car season into gear than with great racing at a great track with great Arizona weather.

“Throw in the possibility of picking up three big wins, while simultaneously escaping the clutches of winter, and this becomes the ultimate racing vacation.”

IMCA Modifieds will join the action on all three programs. Additionally, An Open Practice Session is scheduled for Thursday, January 21.

Tommie Estes will oversee the 410 c.i. Winged Sprint Car competition, while Doug Lockwood will oversee the IMCA Modified action.

“Over the past several years we’ve assembled a great staff at the Wild West Shootout, and many of those same faces will be involved with the Wild Wing Shootout,” Kearns continued.” Additionally, we are excited to have Tommie (Estes) and Doug (Lockwood) leading race operations for the new event. Both are well-respected and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table.”

Additional event details as well as online ticket sales will be released in the coming weeks.

ROOKIE GROWTH: Mason Daniel finding his footing with World of Outlaws

THE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR CONTENDER LOOKS FOR CONTINUED SUCCESS AT DODGE CITY RACEWAY PARK

DODGE CITY, KS — Sept. 10, 2020 — Mason Daniel has found the silver lining in his rookie season with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

After missing eight races in a row, Daniel has made his last six races – transferring directly through the Drydene Heat Race in four of them, including the last two races at the technical Huset’s Speedway.

“I think we’ve had some ups and downs,” said Daniel, of Springville, CA. “We’ve done a lot of switching around with cars at the beginning of the year. I think recently we’ve found where we need to be at and had some good runs the last couple or weekends. Hopefully we can transition that into the last [16] races we have at the end of the year here. I’m looking forward to it. We’re definitely getting better after every weekend.”

He’s earned a career best 13th-place finish twice this year – at Cedar Lake Speedway and Terre Haute Action Track – in 18 starts. And this weekend, on Sept. 11-12, he returns to Dodge City Raceway Park, which became one of his favorite tracks last year after he made the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash and earned his first top-15 finish with the Series.

“The first night we made it into the Dash and I just felt really comfortable there,” Daniel said about racing at the Kansas track. “It’s a great facility and the track is well prepped. It races really well. It provides a lot of moving around. There’s always a top. There’s always a bottom. I’m excited to get back there.”

He returns to the 3/8-mile track with almost a full year of 410 Sprint Car racing now under his belt and 122-time World of Outlaws winner Danny Lasoski still by his side as his mentor and crew chief. Lasoski, who won at Dodge City in 2005, has taken Daniel under his wing for the past two years to help the 20 year old achieve his goal of being a top World of Outlaws driver.

With their recent string of success together, Daniel – who’s raced Sprint Cars for just three years – said he believes they’ve finally figured out how to get him comfortable in the cars. They know what adjustments to make and what shock packages they need for the varying track conditions. That’s led to a boost in confidence and resulted in him qualifying for races on a more consistent basis.

“It’s hard, right? You’re racing against the best guys night in and night out,” Daniel said. “It doesn’t sound like that big of a deal but if you don’t make the main that’s 30 laps that you don’t get – 35 or whatever it is. It’s just, any laps you can get is experience. Especially for just a blue rookie like I am. It’s nice to make the main events and get those laps.”

Finding that balance and comfortability has been the biggest challenge for his Mason Daniel Racing team, he said. There have been a few rough nights along the way to finding it but now that they have, Daniel – who currently has just 28 starts with the World of Outlaws – said he believes they can start closing the large gap between he and the more experienced drivers.

“We have a basic baseline now with these new cars,” he said. “We struggled at the beginning of the year with being tight on the right rear. Then we got off that and started having better runs. A lot of it is throttle control. It’s so easy to spin your tires or blister your right rear or blow a tire. A lot of that. Knowing you don’t always have to be full throttle. If you’re getting tight and close to the wall, just ease off of it and the car comes off the corner straighter instead of smacking the wall. A lot of that has been throttle control and using the brake. And then just racing at speed with these guys.

“It’s a whole ‘nother level. These guys, their reaction time is top tier. They see an opening and they take it. That’s something I’ve got to watch and learn from. If I can make something happen, we’re out here racing for points and money each night, so I just have to make it happen.”

At the start of the season, his goal was to consistently be in the top-10 and be competitive on a regular basis. That changed as the season progressed. His focus shifted to simply making races. He’s OK with that, though, knowing he’s now heading in the right direction.

“If you take a step back and look at it, it’s like, ‘Man, every guy in the top-five and in the top-10 have won an Outlaw race and been on the road for 10-20 years,’” Daniel said. “I’m coming out here in my third season (of racing Sprint Cars) trying to beat those guys. If you take a step back and look at it, it’s like, ‘OK, I’m not doing horrible.’ But at the same time, I want to be doing way better. I think right now we’re closer to where we wanted to be at the start of the season. But we’re moving in the right direction.”

Knowing he’ll be back for the 2021 season, Daniel is focused on continuing to grow and try to meet the expectations he set for himself at the beginning of the year, including winning the 2020 Rookie of the Year title. He’s currently 12th in Series points – 30 points ahead of Wayne Johnson for the rookie title.

Then, he’ll turn his attention back to Florida when the 2021 season starts at Volusia Speedway Park for the DIRTcar Nationals Feb. 5-7 and continue his trek to be one of the top World of Outlaws drivers.

“Once we get there, when you’re consistently in the top-three, you’re going to get a win one of these times,” Daniel said. “It’s a huge gap like I said. Look who runs in the top three each week. Sheldon (Haudenschild), Donny (Schatz), Brad (Sweet). Guys who have been out here forever and have hundreds of more races than I do under my belt. It’s a big goal but we’re making our way there. That’s the exciting part.”

If you can't make it to the track, you can watch all of the action live on DIRTVision.

 

 

WESTERN MIDGET RACING RETURNS TO PETALUMA SPEEDWAY

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (September 10, 2020) – Western Midget Racing will make their second appearance at Petaluma Speedway on Saturday night, supporting the USAC West Coast 360 Sprint Cars as part of an exciting open wheel night at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds.

Western Midget Racing is also scheduled to conclude its season on October 24th at Petaluma Speedway, joining the USAC and BCRA Midgets for another open wheel night of racing on the Adobe Clay surface. The 2020 season for WMR will not crown a points champion due to the Coronavirus pandemic stifling the early season schedule. WMR will be on the card for the recently rescheduled 60th Johnny Key Classic on October 17th at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville as well.

This Saturday at Petaluma, pit gates open at noon with hot laps beginning at 5:00 pm. Tarps are required in the pits under each car at Petaluma Speedway to capture fluids. Racing begins at 6:00 p.m. and can be streamed live on FloRacing.com

Fresno’s David Prickett drove the #22q Henson General Engineering Spike/EcoTec to victory in the series’ debut at Petaluma on July 18th. He was followed by Tyler Slay of Watsonville, who won the Ocean Speedway round for WMR on August 7th in a duel with Prickett. Watsonville’s Evan Bonnema finished third followed by three-time USAC Western Midget winner Tyler Dolacki of Fresno, and Central Point, Oregon driver Theron Smith.

Slay is only the third repeat winner in series history, driving the Slayer Racing Engines Spike/Ecotec. The ten-year racing veteran is the 2018 USAC Speed2 Western States Dirt champion before coming over to WMR. Slay and Bonnema will be joined in the Chris Bray-owned stables by Washington’s Stephen Blankenship. The Tenino, Wash. driver previous raced asphalt Late Models and is dipping his toes into dirt midgets on Saturday.

Prickett will be joined by teammates Sean Quinn of Clovis and David Raquenio of Fresno. Quinn, driving in support of Racing for Veterans, is returning to WMR after competing in the Ravesaver Nationals at Eagle Raceway last weekend. The event attracted more than 100 305-powered Sprint Cars to the Nebraska oval.

Other series regulars in 2020 have included BCRA Hall of Famer Cameron Beard, 2019 Ventura WMR champion Randi Pankratz, and Brentwood’s Blake Bower, the Micro Sprint graduate driving for Bay Muffler in a Stealth/Ecotec.

It's one week until 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway
 

WHEATLAND, MO. (Sept. 10, 2020) - Lucas Oil Speedway will remain quiet this weekend, but it’s just one week until one of the biggest weekends of the year for dirt-track sprint-car racing as the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial rolls into Wheatland for three big nights.

The Lucas Oil ASCS Winged Sprints and POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints return Sept. 17-19 for an event that’s grown each year since its start in 2011. It honors the memories of Jesse Hockett, from Warsaw, Missouri, who was a star in both the winged and non-wing sprint divisions when he lost his life in a shop accident in 2010. His cousin and crew chief, Daniel McMillin, was killed in an automobile accident in 2006.

This year there will be no split qualifying nights with all drivers in both the winged and wingless divisions competing both Thursday and Friday as combined points from heat races, qualifiers, B-mains and A-mains will help set the lineup for Saturday night’s ASCS $10,000-to-win main event and $3,077-to-win WAR feature.

Following the completion of Friday’s program, event points will be totaled with the top eight locked in, straight up, into Saturday’s A-Feature. All other drivers will be lined up into four last-chance qualifiers on Saturday night.

One year ago, Blake Hahn of Sapulpa, Oklahoma, captured the ASCS main event and Chris Windom of Canton, Illinois, won the WAR Sprint final-night feature.

Crouch Preparing for Pair of POWRi National Midget Races in Illinois This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - LUBBOCK, Texas (Sept. 10, 2020) - Brenham Crouch is returning to Illinois this weekend for a pair of POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League races.

Crouch will pilot a Toyota Racing backed Keith Kunz Motorsports midget on Friday at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville and on Saturday at Spoon River Speedway in Canton.

"I'm excited because I feel like I've improved each time we've had weekends in the midget," Crouch said. "It's a learning curve moving up to midget competition this year and each time we run I'm soaking up everything I can."

Crouch tied his career-best midget result of 11th two weeks ago at Jacksonville Speedway.

"I put myself in a good position in the heat race by finishing third," he said. "We started 13th in the feature and worked our way to eighth early. We had a caution and then got up to sixth. On the final restart I got pushed into the slick and all I could do was watch people go by until I could find a lane to get into. It was a bummer not to capitalize and run in the top five, but I was happy with the speed we had."

Saturday will mark his debut at Spoon River Speedway.

"It's always a blast to head to a new track and see how quickly we can adapt," Crouch said. "It's critical to pick it up fast and fortunately we have a great team behind us that will make the process go smoothly."

Williamson Garners Top-Five Run at Lake Ozark as ASCS National Tour Action Resumes at I-80

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Sept. 10, 2020) - Sometimes, it takes more than a fast car to have a solid run in sprint car racing. You need a little luck and Garet Williamson was on the short end of that during the ASCS Warrior Region's 11th annual LOS 360 Nationals finale at Lake Ozark Speedway.

The Columbia, Mo., driver showed how far the Bryant Paver Motorsports team has come with a fourth-place finish on the opening night against a stout 63-car field last Saturday. On Night 2, Williamson had equal speed, but a pair of crashes took him out of competition and forced him to watch the rest of the evening.

"We were super fast and I think we had a car to run up front, but we didn't have any luck on the second day," he said. "We had a top-five car all week, especially Saturday night when we ran fourth.

"It sucked that we didn't get to run Sunday and show what we could do with that, but you just have to take away that you had a fast car. You can't win everything and sometimes that's racing."

Williamson won his heat race Saturday night and advanced from fifth to third in a qualifier. He then maintained his fourth starting position throughout the main event to earn his seventh top five of the season.

Riding plenty of confidence, Williamson finished third in his heat race Sunday night. He charged from eighth to third in a qualifier before another car made contact with Williamson on the frontstretch. His car suffered front-end damage and the 20-year-old was forced to run a B Main.

Williamson was in a transfer spot in the consolation race before he hopped a wheel. That put him out of action for the night.

But Williamson isn't down. He had a fast car and was a contender, which bodes well heading into this Saturday's Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event - the Casey's General Store Midwest Fall Brawl - at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb.

"I don't even know when our last race was with the ASCS National Tour," he said. "I think it was Osky, and that was like a month ago. I think our program has gotten better every weekend, especially lately.

"We've been rolling. We picked up another win and ran up front with all the big guys. There were 63 cars at the Lake this weekend and there were a lot of good guys, and we were one of the fast guys.

"It gives us a bunch of confidence to run with the national guys again. Supposedly, I-80 is like Moberly and I really liked Moberly this year. So, hopefully, that carries over."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 5 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Heat race: 1 (2); Qualifier: 3 (5); Feature: 4 (4).

Sept. 6 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Heat race: 3 (3); Qualifier: 8 (8); B Main: 13 (4).

SEASON STATS -

26 races, 3 wins, 7 top fives, 10 top 10s, 13 top 15s, 18 top 20s

Dominic Scelzi Caps Weekend at Huset's With Season-Best World of Outlaws Result

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 10, 2020) - Dominic Scelzi captured his season-best result with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Sunday at Huset's Speedway, where he recorded a seventh-place showing.

The top-10 run gives him two top 10s and four finishes in the top 11 in his last six starts with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt.'

"We had a great weekend and I felt like we had a car capable of finishing on the podium both nights at Huset's," Scelzi said. "Some misfortune and a couple of things didn't fall in our favor, but I was really pleased with our car."

Scelzi qualified fifth quickest out of 19 drivers in his group on Sunday before he advanced from third to second place in a heat race, which earned him a spot into the dash.

"We qualified really good," he said. "I felt really good and ran good in the heat race to get into a dash spot. We drew the No. 7, which was not the draw we wanted. We ended up eighth in the dash. In the feature we started working up through there. I got to fourth at a time and was fighting for third. I felt like we were as capable of running in the top three as anyone. When we were running fourth and competing for third I felt like we were the best we've been all year. We were really good around the top and the bottom.

"Later in the race I started on the outside on a double-file restart and that cost me a spot. Then on another double-file restart I was on the outside and we lost two spots before we got to the flag stand. Those three spots lost dropped us to seventh, but the car was extremely strong."

Scelzi's seventh-place result was his best with the World of Outlaws since a seventh-place performance at Calistoga Speedway in Calistoga, Calif., on Sept. 14, 2019.

The top 10 capped a weekend that began the previous night when Scelzi qualified 15th quickest overall out of the 37 drivers. He finished fourth in a heat race to lock into the 15th starting position for the main event.

"We lost a tire in the middle of the race and had to restart at the back," he said. "We rallied back into the top five. Unfortunately, a scoring error sent me to the back with five laps to go."

Scelzi finished 11th.

He plans to race with the World of Outlaws this Friday and Saturday at Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan., during the Boot Hill Showdown. Scelzi placed 11th and 16th, respectively, during his debut at the track last year.

JEFF DYER MAKES CAS SPRINT CAR SERIES DEBUT SATURDAY AT CENTRAL ARIZONA SPEEDWAY!

(September 9, 2020, Yucca Valley, CA) At the outset of 2020, veteran Southern California racer Jeff Dyer had big plans for a busy racing season that would see him in competition nearly every weekend in either the California Lightning Sprint Car Series, USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series, or multiple 360 events in the west. Those plans were largely altered with the onset of the COVID-19 crisis. However, this Saturday night, September 12, at Central Arizona Speedway in Casa Grande, Arizona, Dyer will be making his long-awaited 360 debut in the brand-new CAS Sprint Car Series.

Thus far in 2020, Dyer has only raced six times. All those races have been in his Lightning Sprint Car in three different states (California, Arizona, and Colorado). This Saturday on the 3/8-mile clay track in the Copper State, the Yucca Valley, California resident will be jumping up to the #4 ITI chassis/Van Dyne Engine 360 sprint car. It will be the first race for the car that Dyer and his crew put together last winter. Last weekend Dyer, 37, shook the car down at a practice session at Perris Auto Speedway. The car performed flawlessly and is race-ready for this Saturday.


Saturday will not only be Dyer’s first time in his new ride, but it will also be his first-time racing at the Central Arizona Speedway. In addition, it will be the first night out as a car owner for his wife Christina Dyer, who made her on track racing debut in a kart race at Wheel2Wheel Raceway in Victorville two weeks ago.

Dyer’s best finish thus far in 2020 was a second-place finish at the lightning sprint car race at Arizona’s Adobe Mountain Speedway on Memorial Day weekend.

The CAS Series is the newest sprint car racing series in the country. It debuted with several of the west’s top drivers in action last Saturday and Sunday at the same Central Arizona Speedway that will host this Saturday’s race. For fans who would like to watch Dyer in action on Saturday, the first green flag of the night will fly at 7:00 PM. The track is located at 512 S. Eleven Mile Corner in Casa Grande, Arizona (85194). The track phone number is (520) 709-0718 and the track website is at the following link http://centralarizonaspeedway.com/

Several sponsors have jumped on board to help get the new car on the track. They are Glenn Sels Engineering, John Springstead Racing, Hair Cuts By Susan, Carlos, T Shirts By Timeless, Circle Track Performance, Amsoil, and Safe House. If you would like to be a part of the team in 2020 and 2021, call or send an e-mail to the contact information at the top of this page.

Bacon Takes USAC Sprint Car Points Lead into Weekend Double

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (September 9, 2020) – A USAC Sprint Car weekend doubleheader awaits Brady Bacon and the Fatheadz Eyewear No. 69 Sprint Car team.

And seeking a third career series championship, “The Macho Man” takes the series points lead into the weekend that includes events at Bloomington Speedway on Friday night and then Putnamville’s Lincoln Park Speedway on Saturday night.

Bacon propelled himself to the top of the point charts with three top-five finishes in as many nights during the recent Kokomo Sprint Car Smackdown.

Friday marks Bacon’s first visit to Bloomington this season after the Sprintweek card fell victim to inclement weather.

Bacon picked up one of his ten wins on the season at Putnamville with a USAC Sprint Car score on July 4. Saturday card will feature twin features with the completion of the Sprintweek card that was suspended by rain. Bacon won his heat race on that night and will start among the top ten in the makeup feature along with another full slate again.

Bacon comes off a weekend of double-duty at Missouri’s Lake Ozark Speedway that netted his tenth overall feature win of the 2020 campaign.

Bacon picked up the WAR Non-Wing Sprint Car feature win on Saturday night aboard the Longworth Equipment No. 410 entry and looked to be a lock to win the Sunday feature only to be derailed by a faulty fuel pump.

Bacon also broke out the Fatheadz Eyewear No. 69 winged 360-ci Sprint Car for the first time since Knoxville’s 360 Nationals and posted strong finishes of sixth in the Saturday night prelim and then a podium finish of third in Sunday night’s LOS 360 Nationals finale.

All the while, Bacon was also crowned the 2020 Kokomo Speedway Sprint Car champion.

Bacon looks to move one step closer to another championship this weekend with the USAC Sprint Car title in his sights.

Brady Bacon Racing is bolstered by the support of partners including Hoffman Auto Racing, Fatheadz Eyewear, Champion Oil, Gene Franckowiak, Drivewfx.com, Elliott’s Custom Trailers, ATC Trailers, Tel-Star Technologies, Dragonfly Aviation, Lykins Oil, Triple X Race Co., Hoosier Tire, XYZ Machine, Heath Clips Lawn Care, FK Indy, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Rod Ends, Specialty Rigging, Keizer Wheels, Purple Heart Foundation, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Smiley’s Racing Products, R&R Enterprises, DMI, ProGlide Coatings, Chalk Stixx, Wilwood Engineering, Lajoie Seats, Smith Precision Products, Allstar Performance, Simpson Racing Products, MyRacePass, Schroth Racing, Saldana Racing Products, KSE Racing Products, King Racing Products and Schoenfeld Headers.

2020 Quick Stats: 56 races, 10 wins, 26 top-fives, 34 top-tens.

Reutzel Defends Tuscarora 50 Title this Weekend!

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (September 9, 2020) – Last September, Aaron Reutzel picked up the biggest win of his career by pocketing $52,000 at Port Royal Speedway’s Tuscarora 50.

Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team will try to make it two in a row at the Central Pennsylvania clay oval in this weekend’s All Star Circuit of Champions event that unfolds over the course of Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

“I love racing at Port Royal, it’s a place I always look forward to going to,” Reutzel says. “Everything worked out perfectly for us at last year’s Tuscarora 50, hopefully that can happen again.”

Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car team take a healthy All Star points lead into the weekend after a runner-up finish in last weekend’s Attica Ambush finale.

Vying for a third consecutive series title, Reutzel shook off the effect of Friday night struggles at Attica that resulted in a finish of 16th to capture the runner-up finish on Saturday night aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine.

“I gave it all that could have, I didn’t realize it was that close to the end and I don’t know what more I could have done,” Reutzel said of the battle for the lead in the 40-lapper. “It was hard to get good runs to slide him because there were always lapped cars around. It was a lot better run than last night and a good race all in all.”

With the Attica Ambush in the books, Reutzel and the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspension crew made an early run to Port Royal to take in Monday’s Labor Day Classic.

After cutting a tire in heat race action, Reutzel rallied through the “B” Main aboard the Fischer Body Shop entry before making an early exit from the feature event.

“After cutting that tire, we were pretty well buried,” Reutzel says. “We were able to just test some things after that and I think we learned some things that can help us this weekend.”

Three nights at Port Royal beginning on Thursday will culminate with Saturday’s $53,000-to-win Tuscarora 50.

2020 Quick Stats: 66 races, 13 wins, 33 top-fives, 45 top-tens.

Next Up: All Star Circuit of Champions at Port Royal Speedway on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Dover Sweeps Midwest Sprint Touring Series Doubleheader at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 9, 2020) - Jack Dover swept a two-day Midwest Sprint Touring Series event at Huset's Speedway last weekend, pushing his win total to eight triumphs this season.

"It's really sweet," he said. "Before the weekend started my confidence was pretty high. Sometimes you have the feeling that this is my weekend and I'm going to do well."

Dover's confidence was well placed as he maneuvered from seventh to third place in a heat race on Saturday. That earned a spot into the feature redraw and he pulled the No. 4 to start the A Main fourth.

"We worked our way up to third pretty quick in the heat race," he said. "I looked at the lap times and saw we were pretty close to the leader and second place. I knew we had a pretty good car. We just tightened it up a little more for the feature.

"We got up to second and caught the leader early in the feature. I was patient until we got to traffic. The lapped cars were running the bottom and throwing the tacky stuff in the middle. I went to the middle one time in turns one and two. The car stuck pretty good and we were able to get by the leader. Once we did that we railed around the top the rest of the race."

Dover took the lead at the midpoint of the 20-lap feature and cruised to his first win at the track since August 2013.

Sunday was nearly a mirror as Dover advanced from sixth to third place in a heat race to make the feature redraw. This time he got the No. 3 to line up third in the main event.

"We got up to third about three laps into the heat," he said. "We had good cars in our heat with Clint Garner, Gregg Bakker and Carson McCarl. I knew if we were able to move forward with that caliber of drivers we'd be pretty good the rest of the night.

"We tightened up for the feature, but probably not as much as we should have. We got to second. Chris Graf was the leader and he was better than I was. I wasn't pushing the issue as hard as I should have. He was pushing it and hit the cushion. It upset his car and sent him into the wall."

Dover inherited the lead on Lap 6.

"We had a lot of restarts with Lee Grosz and McCarl behind us," he said. "I was a little nervous. They have a lot of laps around there and I don't have many. I tried to change my starts on the restarts and where I went on the track."

Dover led the final three quarters of the race for his second straight victory.

Next up will be a pair of races at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., with the Carpet Land Nebraska 360 Sprints this Friday and Saturday. The Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour will be a part of Saturday's event.

"I'm looking forward to this weekend and next weekend," he said. "There are big races coming up and I feel we have a chance at winning all four nights."

Sept. 5 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Heat race: 3 (7); Feature: 1 (4).

Crockett Produces Podium Finish at LOS 360 Nationals During First Race in a Month

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Sept. 9, 2020) - Roger Crockett was a contender as he returned to action last weekend for the first time since a violent crash approximately a month ago.

Crockett was the high-points earner on Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway, where he charged from eighth to second place in a heat race and from sixth to third place in a qualifier. That gave him the pole position for the 11 th annual LOS 360 Nationals main event.

"We really wanted to win," he said. "We had a great heat race and a good qualifier. We started on the pole and weren't quite right for running that big of a curb. I thought the top would go away and we were just a little too tight. We ran second most of the race and lost a spot late in the race after a little contact was made. It was a good night all in all. To get a podium racing with 63 cars, we were pleased."

The third-place outing was Crockett's fifth top five of the season.

Sunday's event finale was efficient as Crockett advanced two positions to third place in a stacked heat race.

"We drew in a really bad spot," he said. "We started fifth in our heat race, but I think five of the seven cars in the main event the previous night were in the first three rows of that heat race. We were able to go fifth to third, which was a good deal. Then in the qualifier we started on the pole, but on the first lap we had a shock mount break and we lost the right front shock. The car was a handful. Ultimately it ruined the rest of our night because I didn't know what changes to make to the car."

Crockett salvaged a third-place result in the qualifier, which lined him up on the inside of the sixth row for the A Main.

"The car was pretty good at the beginning of the race," he said. "It was one of those races that didn't play out well for me. We got up to sixth on Lap 8 or Lap 9. We were way too free. I wasn't aggressive enough with the changes to the setup. If I could have swapped the car setup for the two nights I think we could have competed for the win on Saturday and been on the podium on Sunday."

Crockett scored an eighth-place finish.

He plans on resuming competition this Saturday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. He enters the event ranked second in the championship standings.

Sept. 5 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Heat race: 2 (8); Qualifier: 3 (6); Feature: 3 (1).

Carney II Charges From 17th to Seventh During LOS 360 Nationals Finale

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Sept. 9, 2020) - John Carney II recorded his 15th top 10 of the season in impressive fashion last Sunday evening during the 11th annual LOS 360 Nationals at Lake Ozark Speedway.

The SawBlade.com Xiphos saw blade and Burkham Contracting sponsored driver charged from 17th to seventh in the A Main to cap the ASCS Warrior Region event that featured more than 60 drivers.

"Overall I think it went pretty good," he said. "There were 60 cars in the pits and we were battling for a top 10 both nights. We didn't tear up any equipment other than on the truck. We had a right front blow out on the way up and on the way back we blew out a rear tire. That's just part of it."

Carney II, who was driving for Scott Brown, placed second in a heat race and won a qualifier on Saturday to lock into the ninth starting position for the main event.

"With as many cars that were there and with that many good cars it wasn't ideal to start on the front of the heat race because I couldn't gather up enough points to start up front in the feature," he said. "We were a little bit free in the feature. That gave us a few things to work on for Sunday."

Carney II finished 11th and was on a mission once he returned to the track for the event finale on Sunday.

"We were in really good shape early," he said. "We went from ninth to fourth in the heat race. We started fourth in the qualifier. The cushion around the top was so tall that it was kind of hard to run. Your car would get ugly. We entered four tires above the cushion. It stuck pretty good the first lap. The second lap it bucked pretty good and caved in the right side panels. A mud clod knocked the rock screen that we have to get more air to the engine through the hood and it got twisted in the throttle linkage. The throttle hung wide open around Lap 4 and then it got wrapped around it differently and it wouldn't go wide open. I thought about pulling in, but stayed out to get as many points as we could."

Carney II placed seventh, but he won a B Main to transfer into the main event.

"We experimented with stuff for the B Main and it went well," he said. "We didn't change anything for the feature. I was able to maneuver all over the race track. I would enter in turns one and two high and turn the car to run off the bottom of turn two as if I had been slid. When I'd come up to a car that was running the top or the bottom and if they made a slight mistake I could maneuver by them. That's where I made most of my moves."

His charge from 17th to seventh marked the second-most positions gained.

"It certainly feels good," Carney II said. "We passed a lot of good cars. It feels good to know we were competitive. It was a good weekend."

Carney II plans to race this Friday and Saturday at Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan., during the Boot Hill Showdown with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 5 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Heat race: 2 (1); Qualifier: 1 (1); Feature: 11 (9).

The Gobrecht Motorsports driver hustled to a 12th-place outing, which was his best run with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt' since winning a preliminary night of the famed Knoxville Nationals in August 2019.

"I felt like I had my program together more and was a little better in qualifying," he said. "We were eighth in our group, but the top 10 were all within a tenth of a second. In the heat race we started fourth and got shuffled back to sixth, but I ended up fighting my way back to fourth, locking us into the feature."

Starks lined up on the inside of the eighth row for the A Main.

"It was a really fun feature," he said. "There was a lot of stuff going on and hard racing back through the field. We were up toward the top 10 and back as far as 18th or 19th. Our car really came on at the end. I committed to the high side and I felt like we gained a lot at the end, including getting the 12th position at the line. It was probably the most fun I've had in a car all year. We don't get to do much short track racing so that was fun to end the weekend like that, especially against that level of competition."

The strong run came on the heels of a frustrating night at Huset's Speedway. Starks qualified 31st quickest and placed eighth in a heat race on Saturday. That lined him up in the middle of the pack in the Last Chance Showdown.

"We hurt ourselves in qualifying," he said. "I'll take the blame. I just didn't put two good laps together. I was trying to get too much out of it so that put us behind. We couldn't get anywhere in the heat race. We had a really good car in the LCS. We started back there a ways and worked our way to fifth. We were looking good with a restart with two laps to go. I felt like I was in the position to pick the opposite lane than the guy in front of me did. Unfortunately, we ended up having the right rear tire go down under caution. It ended up being a cracked wheel that was letting the air out. That was a bummer for sure."

Starks nearly kicked off the weekend by recording a victory at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash., last Thursday when he piloted his family car. He qualified second quickest and placed third in a heat race before a move for the lead in the feature resulted in a DNF.

"The polesitter got the jump on me on the start and I followed him through traffic," he said. "We got to Lap 15 and had an opening in traffic. I pulled the trigger and put a slider on him. I cleared him, but we blew through the cushion and got upside down. It was a bold move. I had followed him for a few laps. The track was fast around the top. I saw my opening and I took it. We don't get to run my car very often and I don't run it to run second. We made a risky move and we paid for it. However, I was satisfied to go out there and be competitive with a car that doesn't run very often."

Gobrecht Motorsports will be off this weekend before returning to Huset's Speedway on Sept. 18-19 for the DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores featuring the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and the Midwest Power Series.

Sides Hustles to 13th-Place Result During First Visit to Huset's Speedway in Four Years

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 9, 2020) - Jason Sides was tied for the third-most positions gained during his first start at Huset's Speedway in more than four years last Saturday.

Sides kicked off the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader at the oval by qualifying 13th quickest. He then placed sixth in a heat race before winning the Last Chance Showdown to lock into the back of the main event.

"We were pretty decent, but we were stuck in that first heat race and it was packed full of good cars," he said. "On the start we fell to sixth so we missed it and had to run the LCS. Once you do that you're starting in the back of the feature. We went a lap down halfway through and if we wouldn't have got lapped we would have been up there at the end of the race. We were one of two drivers to not have a flat tire."

Sides maneuvered from 21st to 13th during a race that was hampered by cautions in the closing laps because of drivers losing tires. However, since he was a lap down those drivers were able to restart in front of Sides after changing the tire.

Sunday's event started nearly the same with Sides timing in 11th quickest in his group. A sixth-place result in a heat race relegated him to the Last Chance Showdown. He placed second to transfer into the back of the main event.

"We should have made it through the heat race," he said. "We were a little tighter than the night before, but we were in a transfer for a few laps. We got to swapping spots for fourth and the next thing you know it let (Justin) Henderson get to us. I had a hard time seeing the bottom in turns three and four. I'd get too low and hit the grease and slid out, which allowed him to get by us for the final transfer.

"We made it through the LCS and we made a few spots up in the feature. Just as we were getting late in the race the leader came by me on the outside. I tried to not get in his way and I spun out. Someone monster trucked us, which tore up a couple of cars. We were going to restart, but it broke the front bottom radius mount off the axle."

Sides was unable to finish the race and was credited with a 22nd -place result.

Next up is a trip to one of his favorite tracks - Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan., this Friday and Saturday. Sides won World of Outlaws races at the track in 2011 and 2015.

"Anywhere you run good you have confidence and know that you should have a decent run," he said. "It seems like the way Memphis used to be built, the shape of it and the way it races, is similar. I had a lot of laps there. Our success (at Dodge City Raceway Park) might have something to do with that."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 5 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 13; Heat race: 6 (4); B Main: 1 (1); Feature: 13 (21).

Seven different divisions will compete at some point during the weekend. The RUSH Late Models, RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, RUSH Sprint Cars, and Sportsman Dwarf Cars will each run a complete show on Friday night, while the "410" Sprint Cars and RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will each run complete show on Saturday night. The Penn-Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series and Elite Econo Mod Series in the "Kyle Miller Memorial" will have their shows split over the two nights with their features on Saturday night. Race time is 7 p.m. both nights.

All general admission grandstand areas will be open including the front and backstretch grandstands as well as the new infield fan zone that debuted on June 27. For no additional cost, fans have the opportunity to witness racing from the infield; concessions and restrooms are available. There will be times throughout the night when fans can cross back and forth. Anyone that is sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms must stay home. All CDC guidelines will be in effect. Facial coverings are required to enter the facility and are to be worn in all common areas.

For the fourth straight year, the "410" Sprint Cars will be part of the "Apple Festival Nationals" racing for $3,000 to-win, $250 to-start. The hot lap/group qualifying format will be utilized. Mufflers are not required and there's no registration or entry fees. The Sprint Cars have competed all three nights thus far during the COVID-shortened 91st anniversary season. Dave Blaney won the season opener on June 27 for his 35th career victory at the track he co-owns. Dave's son-in-law, Cale Conley, became the 11th different winner in 12 "Lou Blaney Memorials" taking night one of the All Star Circuit of Champions on July 11, while Kyle Larson captured night two in Justin Snyder's "Salute to the Troops".

After a four-year absence, the RUSH Late Models will return to Sharon racing for $800 to-win, $125 to-start. RUSH member drivers will be able to accumulate Pace Performance Weekly Series points.

Wolbert leads the Weekly Series standings, while Rob Kristyak sits atop the "Route 7 Rumble" points.

The non-wing RUSH Sprint Cars were scheduled to compete a dozen times during the 2020 season before COVID-19 severely cut the season short.

Weaver has five victories overall on the circuit thus far this season as he leads RUSH's Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series points. The RUSH Sprints will race for $500 to-win, $125 to-start.

Kerry Madsen Earns Top 10 During World of Outlaws Race at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 9, 2020) - Kerry Madsen posted his 16th top 10 of the season with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Sunday at Huset's Speedway, where he recorded a sixth-place showing.

The Killer Instinct Crossbows sponsored Big Game Motorsports driver was in contention for a top-five finish both nights at the high-banked oval. Madsen qualified second quickest and won a heat race both Saturday and Sunday. He placed sixth in the dash on Saturday to line up on the outside of the third row for the A Main.

"The first night was looking really good, but the track took rubber and everyone ended up blowing a tire," he said. "I thought we were going to get lucky. We put another one on and were coming through the field. Then something happened on a restart and there was an accordion effect. We got into the back of someone and ended up flattening the right front tire."

Madsen was credited with a 17th-place finish following his second incident of the feature.

A third-place run in the dash on Sunday lined him up on the inside of the second row for the main event.

"We got up to second and then we dropped back to third," he said. "There were a lot of restarts. We had a good race car. It was a deal where we never got a good restart and seemed to lose a spot every time. At the end of the day you feel like if you'd done a little better job you could have been up the scale a little better. With those double-file restarts, sometimes it just doesn't work out."

Madsen ended with a sixth-place result, which was his 28th overall top 10 this year.

The team is heading east to tackle the Tuscarora 50 this Thursday through Saturday at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa., with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions.

"Hopefully the first two nights we can get some good laps in and fine-tune ourselves and our car to be good on the final night," Madsen said.

The team earned a pair of top fives during the event in 2017.

Walter goes top-10 with IRA at Dodge County

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 9, 2020 – After enduring a season filled with setbacks and challenges, Josh Walter and the Torque Racing team brushed aside adversity in a big way as it rolled up an impressive top-10 finish with the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, Sept. 4.

With 29 IRA competitors check in for the fourth annual Harry Neitzel Tribute Race, Walter opened the evening by ripping off a scorching lap of 17.643 on the high-speed half mile track to record the second-best qualifying circuit of the evening.

“The car felt great Friday at Dodge County,” Walter said. “I was not expecting to qualify as well as we did. In hot laps, I wasn't able to run the car as hard as I would have liked to because of traffic. When we went out for qualifying, the only way to find out how good of a car we had was to run as hard as I could out of the gate on the warm-up lap.

“We had quick time once in my 410 career in an IRA race during the fair at Wilmot back in 2015, but it felt great to qualify that well on a half mile,” he said.

After lining up fourth in the second eight-lap IRA heat race, Walter dropped to fourth on lap one when Jack Blackhurst moved past. Three laps later, Walter worked underneath Kyle Schuett along the backstretch to regain third. The 16th-year Plymouth, Wis. driver held on to the third spot over the final four laps to earn a spot in the A main.

Walter then started and finished fifth in the second four-lap IRA dash to claim the 10th starting spot in the 25-lap main event.

In the A main, Walter fell to 13th by lap four before the first of four cautions was displayed on lap eight for a spin involving Russel Borland. After starting 12th, Walter moved to 11th when Ryan Ruhl dropped out of the race. Walter gained another spot when Jeremy Schultz slowed on lap 9 to bring out the second caution flag.

Following the restart, Walter passed Todd King in turn four on lap 13 to move into ninth place. After a caution for debris on lap 18 and a flip on lap 21 involving Scotty Thiel, Walter moved up to eighth in the running order.

Walter continued his strong run by passing Danny Schlafer in turn two on lap 22 en route to a season-best seventh-place finish in a race won by Bill Balog.

“After Antigo, we thought we'd have a good base setup for Dodge County, but I wasn't expecting it to be that good,” Walter said. “The car really ran well all night. It was a lot of fun to drive.”

The team had planned to be in action with the IRA at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 5.

However, a faulty push rod was detected during routine engine maintenance prior to the racing program, which forced the team to miss the event at its hometown track.

“We found the push rod problem when inspecting the engine before heading to the race at Plymouth,” Walter said. “It appears that it had started to go at Dodge County. We found it at the right, yet unfortunate time.

“We thought it was best to fix it right rather than try to use a band aid to run at Plymouth,” he said. “We have now fixed everything with the engine and will be ready to race on Friday at Outagamie Speedway.”

Walter will be in action with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Car Series at Outagamie Speedway in Seymour, Wis. on Friday, Sept. 11. IMCA Sport Mods and Grand Nationals will also be in action.

Grandstand gates open at 5 p.m. with hot laps at 6:15 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m.

For those unable to attend, the race will be broadcast live on pay-per-view at floracing.com.

Price Ends Year-Long Drought With LOS 360 Nationals Win at Lake Ozark Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Sept. 9, 2020) - Robbie Price picked up his first victory of the season on Saturday night at Lake Ozark Speedway during the opening night of the 11th annual LOS 360 Nationals, which featured more than 60 drivers during the ASCS Warrior Region event.

The triumph was his first since August 2019 and continued what has been a strong second half of the 2020 racing season for the Cobble Hill, B.C., native. He also finished 21st during the weekend finale on Sunday.

"We've stumbled onto some stuff here lately and I feel like it's been a lot of higher points than low points as we wind down this season," he said. "It's a good feeling to be in Victory Lane and know all the hard work is paying off."

Price kicked off the weekend by charging forward six positions in a heat race to finish third on Saturday. He then passed two cars to place fourth in a qualifier. Based on passing points earned, Price lined up on the outside of the front row for the feature.

He jumped out to the lead at the drop of the green flag and despite a minor hiccup in traffic, Price wasn't challenged as he led all 25 laps to take the $3,000 prize.

"I was not very optimistic to start the night as we drew horrible, but our heat race run set us up for success and all I had to do was not go backwards in the qualifier," he said. "In the feature the start was the key as I just needed to get out front and hit my marks.

"I got up over the berm there in traffic and saw a few cars go by and I thought it was over. But when I came around and saw we were still leading I knew I just needed to calm down and we'd be okay."

Price returned to the track on Sunday and he struggled to build on the momentum as he finished fifth in a heat race. As a result he had to run a B Main, which he won from the eighth starting spot to lock into the feature in the 18th starting position.

Price moved forward in the early laps of the A Main, but got into the fence and bent an axle. He made a few more laps, but the car wasn't handling properly as a result of the contact so he pulled off early and was credited with the 21st finishing position.

"The competition in our heat race was stacked and we were just off setup-wise and you can't do that in these races," he said. "We went hard at it and got into the A Main and we were actually pretty good early in the race. But I got it into the guardrail and the car was no good afterwards, so we pulled off and saved the car from any further damage."

Next up for Price will be two days of racing at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. On Friday he will join the Carpet Land Nebraska 360 Sprints during the Bobby Parker Memorial while Saturday will be the Casey's General Store Midwest Fall Brawl sanctioned by the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

"There were a lot of cars at Lake Ozark who will be at I-80 and we were able to beat them so that tells me that I can do this at this level," he said. "I'm looking forward to the challenge and I think we'll be fast out the gate."

Hill Returning to Racing This Saturday During Midwest Fall Brawl

Inside Line Promotions - SIX NATIONS, Ontario, Canada (Sept. 9, 2020) - Alex Hill is looking forward to returning to racing with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour this Saturday following an extended layoff of a month.

Hill plans to compete at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., during the Casey's General Store Midwest Fall Brawl. It will be her first time in a sprint car since racing at Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa, on Aug. 9.

"I'm excited to get back to racing after being off for so long," she said. "We had been doing pretty well before the layoff and I hope we can keep that going this Saturday and for the rest of the season."

Hill has spent her time away from racing back home in Canada, where she quarantined and then began her senior year at California State - Los Angeles through online classes due to COVID-19.

"My father and I both had to quarantine for 14 days after we returned home from Iowa, which is the requirement for all Canadians who return to the country," she said. "I tested for the virus and it was negative.

"I started online classes a couple of weeks ago and I've been trying to spend as much time with family and friends before I leave this week for a while."

Because of Canadian quarantine restrictions, Hill will remain in the U.S. after returning to race this week until her racing season is finished.

"Since I have to quarantine for 14 days each time I go home it doesn't work out for me to do that with my racing," she said. "I'll probably stay in the U.S. until late October or November."

Saturday's race at I-80 Speedway will present a challenge for Hill that she's become accustomed to - another race at a track she's never visited before.

"The first time I saw I-80 was when I watched the Outlaws when they were there recently," she said. "While it will be my first time there, my crew chief, Daryl, has been there before and I'm confident he'll give me a good car."

Bogucki Back to 360 Competition This Weekend After Enjoyable Debut at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 9, 2020) - Scott Bogucki enjoyed his debut at Huset's Speedway last weekend when the high-banked track hosted the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

"It's a cool place," he said. "The venue itself is super nice and the atmosphere was really good."

The SawBlade.com sponsored driver kicked off the two-day show on Saturday by qualifying 16th quickest out of 37 competitors. He then advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race to lock directly into the main event.

"It was pretty good," he said. "I just have to get better at qualifying. We've been qualifying reasonable, but we need to get a little better. We nearly got in the dash through the heat race. That put us straight in the show. I was disappointed the track took rubber in the feature. We had a really good race car those first few laps."

Bogucki was battling for a top 10 early before his right rear tire went flat midway through the race. He was credited with a 23rd-place outing.

The weekend wrapped up on Sunday. Bogucki timed in 14th quickest in his group and finished where he started - seventh - in a heat race. He then powered from the middle of the pack in the Last Chance Showdown to finish fifth, which was one spot shy of transferring into the main event.

"We changed the gear in it and tried a few things to qualify and it hurt us," he said. "We went the wrong way in what we were doing. It was too big of a hill to climb after that, but we had good speed in the car."

Bogucki plans to race this Friday and Saturday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. The weekend is capped with the Casey's General Store Midwest Fall Brawl featuring the Carpet Land Nebraska 360 Sprints and the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. He ranks sixth in the ASCS National Tour championship standings, but is only five points behind fifth place.

Henderson and Sandvig Racing Show Improvement Throughout World of Outlaws Event at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 9, 2020) - Justin Henderson guided the Mike Sandvig Racing No. 7 to two feature starts with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series last weekend at Huset's Speedway.

Henderson finished 19th on Saturday night and rebounded on Sunday to set quick time in his time trial flight before finishing 13 th in the A Main. The top-15 outing was the 13th of the season for the duo.

"We showed speed all weekend against the best in the world," Henderson said. "With how we ran, I see no reason we can't be contending at any race we choose to go to for the rest of the year."

Henderson kicked off the action Saturday night by timing in 20th quickest among 37 cars in attendance with a lap of 11.037 seconds. He then finished where he started - fifth - in a heat race to lock himself into the feature in the 20th starting spot.

Henderson advanced as high as 15th during the feature, but with the track taking rubber and with a rash of blown tires affecting the entire field, Henderson eased the car home with a 19th-place finish.

"If we would've put ourselves in a better position we may have been able to finish better," he said. "But once the rubber took nobody was going anywhere and track position killed us."

Henderson returned to the bullring on Sunday and showed speed immediately as he set quick time in his time trial flight with a lap of 10.843 seconds. He started on the pole in a heat race, but a tough start shuffled him back and he blew a tire trying to make ground up. Henderson rejoined the field at the rear and charged forward to finish fifth to secure the 17 th starting spot in the A Main.

Henderson got shuffled back on the initial start of the feature, but over the next 20 laps he steadily worked himself inside the top 10. He was battling for seventh before a late restart cost him some ground and he took the checkered flag in 13th.

"We missed an opportunity to get in the dash out of the heat and I had to drive pretty hard to try and get back in there and it cost us," he said. "In the feature we were battling pretty hard with Brad Sweet and he kind of took my momentum away. After that I was having trouble hitting my marks and it just seems the car kind of went away."

Next on the schedule will be a Bumper to Bumper IRA 410 Outlaw Sprint Series show at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis., this Saturday during the 19th annual Jerry Richert Memorial. Henderson will also be running his 360 sprint car that night throughout the 360 portion of the event.

Henderson is a past winner of the 410 event in 2005 and last year he led 26 laps before getting caught up in a late-race incident. He's also got a win in 2015 during the 360 portion of the event.

"I feel really good about our program heading into Cedar Lake as we were really good there last year and I think our program is better this year," he said. "There is some good money on the line and somebody has to win it, so it might as well be us."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 5 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 20; Heat race: 5 (5); Feature: 19 (20).

Brian Brown Produces Podium and Three Top 10s During Weekend in Pennsylvania

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 9, 2020) - Brian Brown scored a podium and a trio of top 10s during a four-race weekend in Central Pennsylvania.

Racing continues versus the Pennsylvania Posse with the famed $53,000-to-win Tuscarora 50 weekend this Thursday through Saturday at Port Royal Speedway.

Sept. 4 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 6; Heat race: 4 (1); Feature: 7 (12).

"We unloaded there not as good as we've been in the past, but I think we got better as the night went on," Brown said. "We were too tight. We've been too tight the majority of the year. There was an open red and we tried some stuff. The stuff we tried I feel we can use next time and be better throughout the whole night."

Sept. 5 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 8 (12).

"The track was getting slick right away," Brown said. "It was probably the best we've been in the slick at Port Royal during the heat race. In the feature we weren't very good. I think we were back to around 15 th at one point. There was a red and we could try stuff there as well. I'm not pleased with running eighth, but I am happy knowing the progress we've made and that there's room to grow."

Sept. 6 - Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa. - Heat race: 5 (9); Feature: 3 (10).

"We were the quickest car hot lapping and then we went from ninth to fifth in the heat race," Brown said. "That gave us enough passing points to start 10th in the A Main. It was the best we've been out here. We were able to go 10th to third in the A Main during a race that went non-stop. When we got to fourth we were four and a half seconds behind the leader and at one point we were racing with the leader so that shows the speed we had in the car."

Sept. 7 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Heat race: 5 (9); Feature: 23 (20).

"It was a day show and being 90 degrees made it take rubber quickly," Brown said. "We got to fifth in the heat and that started us 20th in the A Main. By the time the A Main started it was laying rubber. I tried to make something happen on the start and I bent a wheel and broke the Jacob's Ladder. We ended up pulling off early. I talked with the promoter after the race and he said they are looking at ways to improve the Labor Day program. The good thing about Port Royal is they are always trying to make the racing and facility better."

UP NEXT - Thursday through Saturday at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa., for the 53rd annual Tuscarora 50 with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1

"I feel like every night out here we have been pretty decent throughout the night; we just haven't put a whole night together," Brown said. "We've only been able to qualify one night. The other nights have been passing points. I'm looking forward to getting back to an All Star format this weekend. That format will fit our program a little bit better.

"It's such a hard event. Thursday and Friday is more normal. On Saturday you want to qualify good, but then win your heat from fourth. It makes it difficult, but these big events should be difficult. I'm not saying I'm the most confident as I've been going into the Tuscarora 50 weekend, but I feel we have put things together that we can contend."

WINNER AT PORT: CJB & Marks Add Another Win at Port Royal Team has momentum heading into 53rd Annual Tuscarora 50

CARLISLE, PA. - September 9, 2020 - As one of the biggest events of the month is upon them, Brent Marks and the CJB Motorsports team has added a steady flow of momentum that makes them one of the favorites for the 53rd Annual Tuscarora 50.

Port Royal hosted racing action again on Labor Day itself (Monday, September 7th.) Marks charged from 8th to 2nd in his heat race and was running well in the feature until tire issues struck with five laps to go, which regulated the team to a 21st place finish.

Hagar Captures LOS 360 Nationals Finale at Lake Ozark Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Sept. 9, 2020) - Derek Hagar is the 11 th annual LOS 360 Nationals champion after producing a dominating performance last Sunday.

Hagar swept the ASCS Warrior Region finale at Lake Ozark Speedway, winning a heat race and a qualifier before leading all 40 laps of the $5,000-to-win main event.

"It was a late night both nights," he said. "I was kind of worried because I was getting worn out. Once I strapped the helmet on and cranked the motor I was ready to go.

"We got a good start and ran the bottom a couple of laps in turns one and two. It went away really quick. I started moving around and found a good lane that worked for me. In turns three and four I ran the top pretty much the whole race. Once the bottom went away in turns one and two I started diamonding the corner."

The victory was Hagar's sixth of the season and his fourth in sprint car competition during only 11 starts this year.

"It's definitely the biggest one of my year and in my career it's probably the second best paying one," he said. "We won a $10,000 show a few years ago, but this $5,000 on Sunday was our second best."

The event was a work in progress that began on Saturday. Hagar advanced from seventh to fifth place in a heat race and from ninth to fifth place in a qualifier before rallying from 14th to seventh in the A Main.

"Saturday night started out as a struggle," Hagar said. "The track was a little different than times in the past and we had a bad pill draw. We didn't pass many cars in the heat race so that set us up in the back row of a qualifier. We earned enough points to make it into the feature. The track started coming around and we were able to go from 14th to seventh. We didn't have as many cautions as we needed. We needed to bunch the field back up a couple more times to try to get more cars."

Hagar will ride the momentum from his strong weekend into a show at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., this Saturday with the ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Lone Star Region.

Kaleb Johnson Records Top-Five Finish at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 9, 2020) - A top-five performance highlighted Kaleb Johnson's weekend at Huset's Speedway with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series.

"Our weekend was a lot of fun," he said. "I was a little concerned going into it since I had never raced a 360 at Huset's before and most of my racing this year has been at Knoxville, which is a track you drive about the opposite from Huset's. But I enjoyed ripping the top of the track as well as the atmosphere of racing in front of a large crowd both nights."

Johnson gained precious seat time at the tight bullring on Saturday night and it didn't take long for a close-up meeting with the historic track's concrete wall.

"I started fifth in my heat race and had moved up to third when I clipped the wall and broke the Jacob's Ladder," he said. "I lost a spot and hung on to finish fourth."

With repairs made, Johnson rolled off 15th on the feature starting grid.

"I passed a couple of cars using the bottom of the track at the beginning so I figured that was a good place to be," he said. "But before I knew it, I got passed several times and dropped back to about 16th or 17 th. I finally moved to the top of the track with about six or seven laps to go and was able to pass a few more cars as we finished 12 th.

"I was a little frustrated with myself for not changing my line sooner, but we were able to load the car into the trailer in one piece and it turned out to be sort of a test and tune for Sunday so that counted for something."

On Sunday night, Johnson just missed the feature redraw by one position after finishing fourth in his heat race. He lined up ninth in the 24-car main event.

"I was able to pass a few cars on the bottom and then a few more up top," he said. "I made it to third behind Lee Grosz and was having a fun race with Carson McCarl before I lost the brakes with a few laps to go. Then Carson and Clint Garner both got by me and I held on to finish fifth.

"The finish was a little disappointing, but overall, I was really pleased with our night. We had a fast car that ran well both high and low. I'm really looking forward to returning to Huset's in a couple of weeks."

Up next for Johnson will be his only visit to Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis., this year for competition with the Midwest Power Series during the Jerry Richert Memorial on Saturday.

"I've only raced at Cedar Lake a couple of times, but it's become one of my favorite tracks," he said. "I've done pretty well there considering I haven't run many laps. I'm looking forward to returning there and hoping for another good run."

PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to the seat of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 17 machine over the weekend, Ian Madsen would record a couple of Top-10 finishes with the All Star Circuit of Champions at Attica Raceway Park, before charging to a 12th place finish at Port Royal Speedway on Monday in what was a tune up for this weekend’s Tuscarora 50.

I am starting to mesh really well with (Crew Chief) Wayne Priddy,” Ian Madsen said. “Every night we seem to make gains, and it was great to be in the mix all weekend with the All Stars.”

Friday night, Madsen got the weekend kicked off by timing the Hollywood Blastings and Coatings/Fisher Body Shop/Dissolvalloy backed No. 17 entry second fastest in his qualifying group before finishing second in his heat race.

Transferring directly into the feature event, the St. Marys, NSW driver would take the green flag from the 14th starting position. With a very strong BMR entry underneath him, the two-time Knoxville Raceway Champion had his elbows up as he worked his way through the field.

Madsen would race his way into the Top-5, but a late issue with his nose wing would see him lose a few spots late as he closed the night out with an eighth-place finish.

Back in action on Saturday night, Madsen would again get off to another good start as he would time in second fastest in his qualifying group before picking up another second-place finish in his heat.

Earning a spot in Dash No. 2, Madsen’s second place run would put him fourth on the starting grid for the 40-lap feature event.

Slipping back to sixth in the early goings of the ‘A’, Madsen would crack the Top-5 on the eighth lap as he then worked into fourth just after the race’s halfway point.

Continuing to flex his muscle against the star-studded field assembled in Ohio, Madsen would power into third on third with four laps to go as he battled with Cap Henry for position.

Chasing after the lead duo of Rico Abreu and Aaron Reutzel, Madsen would run in the third position as the white flag flew, but he would feel pressure from Henry for the final spot on the podium and would lose the battle and cap his night off with a fourth place finish.

Taking Sunday off, Madsen and the BMR team would make the trip to Port Royal Speedway for the Labor Day Classic and use it as a test and tune for this weekend’s Tuscarora 50.

With the day show creating extremely slick conditions, it was a scenario the team had not yet faced together, so they took full advantage of the opportunity to get dialed in for this weekend.

Lining up 19th on the starting grid, the extremely slick surface would turn abrasive and Madsen would actually blow a tire. Making repairs and returning to the tail end of the field, Madsen would take what he could get as he worked around the slick ½ mile speedway and worked his way forward to finish 12th during the Monday afternoon matinee.

“I am really thankful to the Baughman family for this opportunity, as well as everyone inside this organization,” Madsen said. “Big thanks to Fisher Body Shop, and all the great partners on this car for their support.”

ON TAP: Ian and BMR will be in action on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway for the Tuscarora 50.

 

 

Scelzi and KCP Racing 4th at Huset’s Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Gio Scelzi and KCP Racing put together a strong weekend with the World of Outlaws that was highlighted by a fourth place run on Sunday night that saw the youngster lead laps early.

“It is really hard to be disappointed with the weekend we had, but Sunday night we were in a position to pick up a win and I threw it away,” Scelzi said. “Saturday night track conditions really dictated how the race went, but our car felt really good all weekend.”

Sunday night at Huset’s Speedway Scelzi got his night off to a quick start as he timed the Logan Contractors Supply, Inc./Aspen Aire/Royal Flooring backed No. 18 machine in fourth fastest in his time trials group.

Getting the jump in his heat race, Scelzi would cruise to the win and make himself Dash eligible. Getting the jump in the Dash, Scelzi would win that race as well and find himself on the pole for the 35-lap feature event.

When the race went green, Scelzi was able to jump out to the early lead where he continued to look very strong on the famed South Dakota bullring. While he led the way, the race would be mired with cautions and stoppages and never let the leaders get into traffic.

Continuing to nail his restarts, a lap 24 restart would see the youngster line up alongside fellow California native, Kyle Larson. With Larson getting the jump, Scelzi would relinquish the lead on the 25th lap, as he continued to battle with James McFadden and David Gravel as Larson pulled away.

Getting over the cushion with just a couple laps left in the race, Scelzi would slip off the podium, but was able to keep his mount inside the Top-5 as he closed the night out with a fourth-place finish.

Saturday night action at Huset’s Speedway was simply wild as track conditions would lead to every car in the feature event blowing a right rear tire at some point in the feature event.

After timing in 10th fastest in time trials, Scelzi would race to a third place finish in heat race action and find himself safely in the feature event.

Taking the green flag from the 10th starting position, the track would take rubber very early, and tire wear would soon become an issue.

Scelzi was able to do a great job of keep his tires under him and it would pay off as he would get up to the third spot in the late stages of the race. However, Scelzi would also be a victim following a fuel stop and he would make a trip to the work area for a fresh Hoosier right-rear.

Able to restart, Scelzi would pick up a few positions as he closed Saturday night out with a 12th place finish.

“I am upset with myself with Sunday night, but that’s how it goes,” Scelzi said. “I will learn from it, move on, and hopefully not make the same mistake again. We are really excited to get a lot of racing in over the next few weekends in Pennsylvania.”

KCP Racing would like to thank Logan Contractors Supply Inc., Aspen Aire, Royal Flooring, Bobcat, Ted’s Body Shop, Team Excavating, Cox Design and Fabrication, Armor Electric Company, TammyHeckart.com, Quality Traffic Control, BergenKDV, and BK Racing Titanium for their support this season.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-12, Wins-0, Top-5’s- 5, Top 10’s-7

ON TAP: Scelzi and KCP Racing will be in action at Port Royal Speedway this Thursday- Saturday.

 

 

Kyle Schuett Posts Pair of Top-15 Finishes in Visits to New Tracks

Inside Line Promotions - PLYMOUTH, Wis. (Sept. 9, 2020) - Two top-15 finishes at two new tracks highlighted Kyle Schuett's weekend of racing with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series.

"I thought we did pretty well last weekend, especially since it was our first time to both tracks," he said.

Schuett's weekend began Friday night with a rare appearance on a half-mile track at Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. His first laps of competition didn't go as well as hoped for when a cracked wheel caused a rear tire to lose air and forced him from his heat race while he was running second. He eventually finished third in the B Main, which transferred him into the 20th starting position in the A Main.

"The half-mile track took some getting used to since we don't run many of those," he said. "We had an issue with a wheel in our heat race and had to qualify through the B Main.

"Early in the A Main I had to slow for a guy who did a 360 and that led us to getting lapped pretty early. But we were still able to pass some cars and move forward. We eventually finished 14th. We were way off on our stagger, which can happen when you're at a track for the first time. All things considered, I thought we did all right."

Schuett's evening got off to a much better start the following night at Plymouth Dirt Track. After qualifying seventh quickest out of 30 cars, he took the lead early in his heat race and pulled away to win by more than three seconds. However, Schuett caught a bad break in the draw for his dash when he plucked the fifth and final starting spot.

"I was right behind Josh Schneiderman the entire race," he said. "I wanted to poke my nose in there, but I also didn't want to wreck anything without a good opportunity to make a pass so I settled for fifth."

Schuett's result in the dash placed him in the ninth starting spot in the A Main.

"I was able to move up to about seventh before we had a caution with about 12 laps to go," he said. "Everyone was running the bottom so on the restart I decided to be different and run the top. I gained some ground running the top in turns one and two, but then I lost some in turns three and four.

"Eventually I started losing more ground than I was gaining and that's when I should've moved back to the bottom. Unfortunately, I was too stubborn and still thought I could make it work. I eventually got freight trained before I gave up and moved back down. I finished 14th.

"We are excited to return to Dodge County Fairgrounds and Plymouth Dirt Track on Sept. 25-26 for the final two IRA Series races of the season."

Sunday's IRA Series event rained out.

Schuett will spend this weekend closer to home in competition with the Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Car Series at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill., on Friday and at Spoon River Speedway in Canton, Ill., on Saturday.

"We're looking forward to racing with MOWA at tracks we're familiar with," he said. "We stumbled onto something recently when we changed our left rear suspension. Our car is working much better now and we're looking forward to a strong finish to our season."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 4 - Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. - Qualifying: 11; Heat race: DNF (1); B Main: 3 (1); Feature: 14 (20).

West Jr. Soaks Up First Laps on Biggest Track He's Competed at in Sprint Car

Inside Line Promotions - MONROE, La. (Sept.9, 2020) - Jeffrey West Jr. enjoyed his first experience on a big, high-banked track last Saturday at Dirt on the Rev.

The ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Lone Star Region event began with a runner-up result in a heat race.

"First off, the track and facility are top notch," he said. "It was high banked and was the fastest I've been in a sprint car. I started on the pole in the heat race and battled for the lead for two or three laps. We ended up second, but we were pretty good.

"For the feature redraw they had us park by the frontstretch and had the little kids pull for us so that was cool. We made some changes with the setup for the feature and went in the wrong direction. We were just way too tight. I was pushing."

West Jr. started eighth, but lost a couple of positions early before hanging on for a 14th-place result.

"That was the first time I've been on a banked, 3/8-mile track," he said. "We know what we should do differently next time. We're still trying to figure everything out. That's where we're going to struggle is when we go to the bigger tracks. That's what this year is all about is learning."

West Jr., who ranks third in the ASCS Mid-South Region championship standings, returns to action with the series this Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. The event is co-sanctioned with the ASCS Lone Star Region.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 5 - Dirt on the Rev in Monroe, La. - Heat race: 2 (1); Feature: 14 (8).

Old School Racing's Tankersley Garners Fourth-Place Finish in Louisiana

Inside Line Promotions - MONROE, La. (Sept. 8, 2020) - Channin Tankersley earned a top-five finish last Saturday during his debut at Dirt on the Rev, which hosted an ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Lone Star Region event.

"It's a beautiful facility," he said. "The track layout was great. When we started off the night it was pretty decently slick. It had a little bit of a top and a little bit of a bottom."

The Old School Racing driver advanced from third to second place in a heat race, which garnered a spot into the feature redraw. Tankersley pulled the No. 6 to line up on the outside of the third row for the A Main.

"We went forward a little and went backwards a little," he said. "We were lacking a little bit of speed, but overall we were fairly decent. We needed just a little bit more to get us up there with the top three. We were a little too free all night. I felt better in the A Main. The track was pretty slick. We weren't adjusted well enough to roll the bottom like those other guys who finished in front of us."

The fourth-place finish was Tankersley's eighth top five in 16 races this season. He also has 12 straight top 10s in the state of Louisiana dating back to July 2012.

Tankersley will take this weekend off before joining the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Sept. 18 at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla., and Sept. 19 at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, during the Texas Outlaw Nationals.

Nienhiser 7th with WAR Before Part Failure Knocks Him out Of Lead

PETERSEN MEDIA: Continuing to hone his craft aboard a non-wing sprint car, Paul Nienhiser would finish seventh on Friday night at Lake Ozark Speedway before a part failure on Saturday night knocked him out of competition during his two nights of action with the Lucas Oil POWRi WAR Series.

“It was a fun weekend of racing,” Paul Nienhiser said. “I am really enjoying running the non-wing car, and am really enjoying proving a lot of people wrong who didn’t think I could be this competitive.”

Friday night Nienhiser kicked his weekend off in Missouri by lining the CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil/Mason Sound/Innovative Design backed No. 9x machine up in the fourth row of his heat race.

Able to acclimate to the Lake Ozark Speedway quickly, the Chapin, IL driver was able to slice and dice his way through traffic and record a third-place finish.

On a night that saw a ton of guys work through the field on heat race action, Nienhiser’s point total put him ninth overall and placed him in the fifth row of the feature event.

Getting off to a great start in the feature, Nienhiser really had his entry working as he quickly jumped into the third position as he chased after Brady Bacon and Landon Simon.

Able to reach the lead duo, Nienhiser didn’t quite have enough to get by either of them and would drift back to fourth before a late restart bunched the field back up. Under the stoppage, Nienhiser’s right rear would seal up and his car would turn evil on him in the final five stanzas.

Switching into damage control mode in the closing laps, Nienhiser would keep his mount inside the Top-10 as he capped the night off with a seventh-place finish.

Confident from Friday’s performance despite the struggle in the closing laps, Nienhiser came out strong during Saturday night heat races as he would advance from sixth to finish second.

Finding himself atop the point standings, Nienhiser would lead the field to green as he searched for his first non-wing sprint car feature event win.

Not getting the jump he wanted, Nienhiser would slip back to fifth in the early goings, but once he settled down was able to make up all that lost track position as he powered back into the race lead.

Following a mid-race caution, the ensuring restart would see Nienhiser start to slow as an issue with his fuel pump caused him to lose power. Running up front, Nienhiser didn’t quite notice how much power he lost as he would fall off the pace completely and endure damage to the rear of his car as he tried to get off the racing surface.

With the fuel pump issue and the damage to his machine, Nienhiser’s night would come to an early end.

“It was fun to go racing with just my girlfriend and myself with limited spares,” Nienhiser added. “We had one of my crew guys show up and lend us a hand on Saturday, but really cool to be that competitive with how we showed up. Really want to get a win without the wing very badly.”

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil, Mason Sound, Innovative Design, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Wessler Bros. Agency, Bob Hawks Auto Body, Littleton Storm & Timber, Fierce Herbicide, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Kaeding Performance, Smith Titanium Products, Vortex Wings, Signature Signs and Design, and Team Simpson for their continued support.

2020 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-28, Wins-3, Top 5’s-8, Top 10’s-14

ON TAP: Nienhiser is set for two MOWA shows this weekend as he will be at Jacksonville Speedway on Friday, and Spoon River Speedway on Saturday. Friday night will also see Nienhiser battle with POWRi aboard a Dave Mac Motorsports Midget.

Fourth Place Run Highlights Tanner Carrick’s Weekend with USAC

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting back to the Midwest to resume the USAC National Midget campaign, Tanner Carrick and the Petry Motorsports team would have a strong weekend that saw them record a fourth place finish on Saturday night after issues knocked them out of the lead on Friday and relegated them to a ninth place finish.

“We had really good speed both nights,” Tanner Carrick said. “We led a lot of laps on Friday night but we had some bad luck and had a steering issue that knocked us out of contention.”

Returning to the scene of his win with the series in 2019, Carrick got his night weekend off to a nice start on Friday as he timed the FK Rod Ends/Arai/K1 Race Gear backed No. 35 entry in sixth fastest in time trials.

Picking up a second-place finish in his heat race, Carrick moved directly into the feature event where he would roll off the starting grid from the inside of the second row.

Working the low side of the speedway to perfection on the race’s opening lap, Carrick would work into the lead on lap two and begin to pull away from the field.

Continuing to lead the way, Carrick would hold off Chris Windom for a handful of laps as he continued to lead the first half of the race. Developing a steering issue, Carrick would do what he could to wrestle his machine around the track as he would relinquish the lead on the 17th lap and ultimately hand on to finish 9th when the checkered was displayed.

Saturday night Carrick continued to show a ton of speed at the facility as he got off to another great start and timed in fifth fastest in qualifying time trials.

Getting the wrong end of a heat race tangle, Carrick would go to the ‘B’ on this night where his fifth-place finish transferred him into the final feature event of the weekend and put him 11th on the starting grid.

From the sixth row, Carrick again continued to showcase a strong Petry Motorsports entry as he wasted no time working through the Top-10.

Getting into the Top-5 late in the race, Carrick would cap a furious charge on this night as he closed the weekend out with a fourth place finish.

“It was a bummer to have issues on Friday night while leading, but this team really worked hard and we had an awesome car both nights,” Tanner Carrick added.

Tanner Carrick at Petry Motorsports would like to thank Arai, K1 Race Gear, Mobil1, FK Rod Ends, Keizer Wheels, ZMax, DR Horton, Toyota TRD, CVC, Cemex, BK Titanium, Interstate Oil Company, Emerald, and Harris & Sloan for their support.

2020 BY THE NUMBERS- Starts-25, Wins-0, Top 5’s-5, Top 10’s-14

ON TAP: Carrick will now head back to CA where he is scheduled to compete at Marysville Raceway on Wednesday night.

Paul Pokorski tallies top-10 in
Dodge County Harry Neitzel Tribute Race

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) Sept. 8, 2020 – In his fourth consecutive appearance behind the wheel of the Pokorski Motorsports 360 Sprint Car, 28-year veteran Paul Pokorski West Bend notched the team’s third top-10 A-main showing of the 2020 campaign at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, Sept. 4 and put together a hard-charging effort from deep in the field in A-main action at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth on Saturday, Sept. 5 during a Midwest Sprint Car Association doubleheader weekend.

On Friday, Sept. 4, Pokorski was among 23 MSA drivers on hand to tackle the sprawling Dodge County Fairgrounds “horsepower half mile” for the fourth annual Harry Neitzel Tribute Race.

After lining up fourth in the in the second eight-lap heat race, Pokorski pulled off a power move on the opening lap to advance past Jack Vanderboom and Justin Erickson into second place.

The 2014 MSA Masters Series champion held down second place throughout the remainder of the race behind race winner Brandon McMullen.

In the 20-lap A main, Pokorski lined up third on the grid and was shuffled back to sixth in the running order on the opening lap. On lap 5, Jack Vanderboom worked past Pokorski and on lap 13 Scotty Neitzel moved Pokorski back to eighth place.

On lap 15, Scott Conger maneuvered past Pokorski. However, Pokorski stormed back to regain the spot in the closing laps en route to an eighth-place finish in a race won by Brandon McMullen.

“The car felt pretty good in the heat race, but I wasn't hitting turn one and two very well,” Pokorski said. “We changed very little before the feature and for some reason it was a bit of a handful. Maybe we needed to change more to keep up with the racetrack. We've been struggling to get consistent with this backup car. We finished eighth, but it felt like we were 18th.”

One night later at The Plymouth Dirt Track, Pokorski joined a field of 29 MSA-PDTR 360 Sprint Car drivers in the third to last race of the season at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds facility.

Pokorski drew the seventh starting spot in the fourth 10-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car heat race and was unable to move up on a fast and tacky track surface as he placed seventh in the race.

After starting ninth in the 15-lap B main, Pokorski had his work cut out for him in order to finish in the top six to gain a berth in the A main. On lap 2, Pokorski fell to 10th before passing Preston Ruh to regain ninth place on lap 5.

The caution flag was displayed on lap 7 when Tyler Davis spun in turn two. Pokorski restarted eighth and worked past Chris Larson on lap 9 to gain the seventh spot.

On the final lap, the sixth-place car of Josh Teunissen got temporarily hung up behind a lapped car entering turn one, which allowed Pokorski to swing high to maneuver around Teunissen into the sixth and final transfer spot at the finish line.

After starting 20th in the 25-lap A main, Pokorski got caught in an incident involving Blake Wondra on lap 3, which prompted Pokorski to visit the work area after making slight contact with Wondra.

After restarting 19th, Pokorski advanced to 16th on lap 7 just before a red flag was displayed for the flipping car of Adam Miller in turn four. After restarting 16th, Pokorski powered past Doug Wondra, Tony Wondra and Ben Schmidt along the preferred inside groove to move up to 13th.

On lap 15, Pokorski dove under the high-riding Kurt Davis to claim 12th, which is where he finished in a race won by Brandon McMullen.

“Saturday night at Plymouth the car felt great in hot laps and it felt okay in the heat race, but I had hit an infield tire and tore off the left front shock on the first lap,” Pokorski said. “The track was well-prepared and really fast. Therefore, it was hard to pass on. Without a left front shock that made it even harder so we were pretty much just hanging on.

“We struggled a little bit in the B and got lucky to make it into the feature,” Pokorski said. “We changed a bunch of stuff before the feature and made it better, but we still have a ways to go. We left the track with car in one piece, so we can work on making it better and sometimes that's all you can ask for.”

The Pokorski Motorsports team announced this week that after sharing the driver’s seat with his 21-year-old son Alex this season, Paul Pokorski will be behind the wheel for the remaining three races of the 2020 season.

“When we switched to the 2011 J&J chassis after our primary 2016 Maxim was involved in an accident, we found that the backup car didn’t really fit Alex well because he is a little taller than me,” Pokorski said. “We don’t want to put Alex in the car if he is not comfortable. Safety is the most important thing. As a result, I will be driving the car for the final three nights of the season.”

The Pokorski Motorsports team is set to be in action this Saturday, Sept. 12 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis., along with the PDTR Grand Nationals and B Mods, along with the visiting Bader Midget Series.

Spectator gates open at 4:30 p.m. with hot laps at 5:30 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m.

Nolen Racing’s Hollingsworth

Finishes Second in Little 500

ANDERSON, Ind., Sept. 8 — Nolen Racing’s Shane Hollingsworth only races once a year, but he made it memorable Saturday night when he came from 19th to finish second in the 72nd annual Pay Less Little 500 at Anderson Speedway, the most prestigious asphalt sprint car race in the world.

It was the Lafayette, Ind.-based driver’s best finish ever in this race, which is presented by the United Auto Workers.

He led 63 laps in the bright yellow Nolen Racing No. 20, which is powered by a V6 Chevrolet engine prepared by Tranter Race Engines. The team is sponsored by KECO Coatings, Goodridge and K&N Filters.

Hollingsworth’s teammate was defending and three-time Little 500 champion Kody Swanson of Zionsville, Ind., who won this race driving for Nolen Racing in both 2018 and 2019. The two Nolen Racing cars and Eric Gordon’s were the only cars with V6 engines in the 33-car starting field.

Swanson earned the pole position, led the second-most number of laps with 141 to Tyler Roahrig’s 156, and posted the fastest lap of the race in the Nolen Racing No. 4. For most of the race he seemed to be in a great position to win again, but his car had a motor issue that forced him to drop out of the race with 424 laps complete while he was running second to Hollingsworth. His official finishing position was 14th.

While Swanson led the first 140 laps, Hollingsworth ran in 17th place in the early going, moving up to 14th on lap 21 after he passed two cars and one in front of him crashed. He passed Shane Butler for 13th around lap 53, and advanced to 12th due to more attrition. He passed Aaron Pierce for 11th place around lap 95, and entered the top 10 for the first time when he passed Jerry Coons Jr. around lap 114.

He passed Derek Bischak for ninth place on lap 122, and about five laps later he passed Kyle Hamilton for eighth. He vaulted from eighth to sixth around lap 163 when Brian Gerster dropped back and Hollingsworth passed Dakoda Armstrong. He broke into the top five after the fourth yellow around lap 205 when the leader, Caleb Armstrong, ran out of fuel.

Both Hollingsworth and Swanson made their first of two pit stops under that yellow, as did several of their rivals. Hollingsworth had advanced from fourth to third and Swanson had gone from third to fifth when the green flew again on lap 218.

Hollingsworth remained in third place until about lap 238, when both Gerster and Swanson got by to push him back to fifth. He stayed in fifth place, the last driver on the lead lap, until he made his second and final pit stop on lap 339 under the eighth yellow. A few others pitted too but the Nolen Racing team’s stop was quick, and Hollingsworth was third for the restart on lap 350, although he was one lap down to the two leaders, who were the eventual winner, Bobby Santos III, and Swanson.

Hollingsworth got second when Santos pitted under the ninth yellow on lap 404, which put the two Nolen Racing cars first and second. Swanson made his second pit stop a little later on the same lap, which vaulted Hollingsworth into the lead. It was Hollingsworth, Santos and Swanson for the restart. Swanson slipped under Santos on lap 417 with an inside pass on the frontstretch, but then Swanson unexpectedly slowed and retired with engine woes with 424 laps complete.

Hollingsworth had a 0.349-second lead over Santos with 50 laps remaining in the race. Santos’s Hoosier tires had approximately 64 fewer laps on them than Hollingsworth’s tires did, and he was able to keep close behind. They were the only drivers on the lead lap at that point.

Following the tenth and final caution flag, Santos passed Hollingsworth on the backstretch on the restart working lap 468 and went on to victory. Hollingsworth had a scary moment around lap 470 when he almost spun out, but he took the checkered in second place, about 7 seconds behind Santos and a lap ahead of the driver who finished third, Roahrig. Kyle O’Gara and Gordon rounded out the top five.

“We weren’t real happy with our middle set of tires,” Hollingsworth said later. “Because of that, we opted to pit a little bit early. I drove the hell out of it but just didn’t have enough to hold off Santos.

“We’re here because of Gene [Nolen, the team founder who passed away April 8]. I’m just glad Greg [Nolen, Gene’s son] kept the team going and we could finish second. I think Gene would have been proud of his team tonight. We’re really happy with second; we’ll take it; thanks to the whole team. I’ve been third here and I was fourth last year and second this year; it’s my best finish here so far. Hopefully we’ll have the opportunity to try to make some improvements and come back next year.”

When asked about the scary moment around lap 470, Hollingsworth said he wasn’t sure what happened, but it was a moment that caught his attention. “It definitely reminded me that I had to focus on finishing,” he said. “There are lots of moments in the Little 500 because you’re running so close to the people you’re racing with as well as the lapped cars, and there are lots of opportunities to get caught up in things,” he added. “The crew did a good job in the pits. It seems these last few years it’s always been Kody, Bobby and I competing for the win. Kody probably was in the best position to win so it was a shame that he couldn’t finish. Five hundred laps at Anderson is definitely challenging. I think this was my overall best race, but I was still short of that victory.”

Swanson earned the pole position on Thursday with a four-lap average speed of 80.46 miles per hour for the quarter-mile, high-banked asphalt oval. His total for the four laps was 44.745 seconds. Roahrig was second with a time of 44.956; Hamilton was third with a time of 45.017 and Santos started seventh with a time of 45.301. Hollingsworth had to get in on Bump Day on Friday with a qualifying time of 46.077 in the very competitive field.

Swanson led the famous 11 rows of three to the green flag, got a great start, and led the first 140 laps. He set the fastest lap of anyone in the race on lap 93 with a time of 11.665 seconds. Roahrig was second-fastest with a 11.707 on lap 46.

Swanson’s rivals made him work hard to stay ahead in the early going, but he was able to pad his lead to more than 1 second over Hamilton by lap 104. Things got tight again when Roahrig passed Hamilton for second a few laps later. There were three cautions during the first 140 laps where Swanson had to fight off his rivals on restarts and night fell during that stint, but Swanson was up to the task.

The pressure was intense, however, and on lap 141 both Roahrig and Caleb Armstrong got under Swanson to shuffle him back to third place. He remained in third until O’Gara passed him around lap 185 to push him back to fourth. He regained third when Armstrong ran out fuel, but dropped to fifth after he made his first pit stop under that yellow around lap 209.

He regained fourth when he passed Hollingsworth around lap 238. He was still scored in fourth place until the pit stops under the eighth caution around lap 340, when he vaulted to second behind only Santos. He and Santos were the only drivers on the lead lap at that point. Swanson was 0.827 seconds behind Santos on lap 355, but Swanson remained within striking distance.

When Caleb Armstrong suffered mechanical difficulties and stopped on the frontstretch to bring out the ninth yellow around lap 400, Swanson got into him but he was able to continue. He got the lead on lap 404 for one lap when Santos pitted under that yellow, but then Swanson pitted too, giving the lead to Hollingsworth. When the pit stops were completed Hollingsworth was leading, Santos was second and Swanson was third for the restart.

Swanson slipped under Santos for second on lap 417. That put the Nolen Racing cars first and second with just 83 laps remaining. They remained that way until Swanson’s night ended prematurely with the engine problems working lap 425, just 75 laps short.

“We really had a great week, so it is tough to have the final result that we did,” Swanson said. “We had a fast car all week, won the pole on Thursday, and were just managing our race. We led early, but I felt like the way the lapped cars were racing each other it was creating more risk than I wanted to take with more than 300 laps left to go. So when there was much pressure for the lead, I didn't want to try too hard to keep it and get ourselves in a bad spot that early.

“We had a great first pit stop but lost positions after an issue with the push truck; that’s all just part of the uniqueness of this race. Although you never like having a setback, we still had plenty of race left. We lost the handle a little bit during that second run, so we made sure to take care of our equipment and set ourselves up to be the best car to the finish.

“We had a good second pit stop, made the right adjustments, and had fresh tires with less than 100 laps to go, so it was finally "time to go." The car was great after that final stop. In just a few laps we had already made the difficult passes we needed to in traffic, and I believe we had a really strong chance to win if we could have made it to the end. I'm thankful for everyone's hard work this week, and just disappointed we didn't get to finish it.

“Once I was out of the race and in the infield, I was pulling really hard for Shane, and I was glad for him to get a good finish.”

Nolen Racing’s next race is the USAC Silver Crown season finale at Toledo Speedway in Toledo, Ohio on Oct. 4. Swanson is second in those point standings, 22 points behind Justin Grant, 177 to 199. Kyle Robbins and Matt Goodnight are tied for third with 167 and Chris Windom is fifth with 166.

Zearfoss a runner-up twice over Labor Day weekend; Tuscarora 50 on deck

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (September 8, 2020) – Despite a relatively slow start to his long holiday weekend, finishing ninth at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, September 4, before getting caught up in a mess during the fair opener at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, September 5, the “Jonestown Jet” Brock Zearfoss picked up the pace on Sunday and Monday and recorded back-to-back podium performances, finishing second on each occasion.

Zearfoss, driver of the Brock Zearfoss Racing, Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., BAPS Auto Paints & Supply, Meckley’s Limestone Products, Berkebile Oil Company, Klick Lewis Cars, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, X-1 Race Cars, No. 3Z sprint car, earned his first runner-up result of the weekend during a visit to Selinsgrove Speedway on Sunday, September 6, charging ahead from eighth on the grid and doing so with no power steering during the final 12 laps. Impressive enough, the 30-lap contest went off without a caution.

Zearfoss’ second runner-up result of the weekend occurred during Port Royal Speedway’s annual Labor Day Classic on Monday, September 7. The former Port Royal track champion started fifth on the afternoon grid and pressured eventual winner, Anthony Macri, late, but unfortunately, time ran short.

“We had a great car all weekend. Hats off to this entire team. We have a lot of speed heading into Port’s Tuscarora and that’s most important right now. We have that one circled, for sure,” Brock Zearfoss said, who owns two sprint car victories in 2020 including one against the All Star Circuit of Champions. “Our goal right now is to be a force all weekend. We want that big payday on Saturday night and I’m more than confident Tye and Shane will give me a car that’s plenty capable of producing a win. I’m excited to get started.”

Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing will continue their 2020 campaign with three days of All Star Circuit of Champions competition at Port Royal Speedway on Thursday through Saturday, September 10-12. The 53rd annual Tuscarora 50 is on the weekend agenda, capped off with a 50-lap, $53,000-to-win main event on Saturday evening. The three-day visit will blast off with a pair of $6,000-to-win preliminary main events on Thursday and Friday.

Danny Dietrich sweeps Leiby Memorial at Lincoln; Tuscarora weekend ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (September 8, 2020) – Danny Dietrich’s Labor Day weekend schedule was packed to the brim, but filled with accomplishment, scoring two victories in five feature starts while finishing inside the top-ten during all five attempts. Impressive enough, Dietrich’s pair of victories occurred in the same night, sweeping the Bob Leiby Memorial twin feature program at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, September 5.

Dietrich’s pair of Leiby Memorial wins were not easily earned, forced to charge ahead from 14th to claim the first of two $2,500 top prizes, then rallying from eighth to secure the second with a final lap pass.

The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native rallied ahead from 17th to earn his fifth-place outcome, doing so over 30, uninterrupted laps.

“That was a great weekend for our team. To sweep the night at Lincoln says a ton about our program and what we are capable of doing. I think we are more than capable of doing some big things this weekend at Port Royal,” Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, No. 48 sprint car. “I want to thank all of the fans for coming out and supporting us.

Michalski quick in Lincoln twin features; Tuscarora weekend begins Thursday

PENNDEL, Pa.

Michael impressive against All Stars during Attica Ambush

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FREMONT, Ohio (September 8, 2020) – The “Texas Traveler” T.J. Michael put together a head-turning performance during Attica Raceway Park’s Attica Ambush over Labor Day weekend, not only securing back-to-back main event starts against the All Star Circuit of Champions, but scoring a top-ten outcome in the process; his best result of the season against the national-level touring Series.

Impressive enough, Michael’s top-ten outcome commenced from the outside of row 12, eventually capping Friday’s preliminary feature in the tenth spot after starting 24th. The Plano, Texas-native, who resides in Fremont, Ohio, during the summer months, was forced to start deep after missing a transfer position in his respective heat race, advancing through the evening’s B-Main shortly thereafter.

Just one spot shy of matching his Friday night performance, Michael concluded his Attica Ambush appearance with an 11th-place rally during Saturday’s $10,000-to-win finale, doing so from 15th on the grid.

Other weekend results include finishing 12th during Wayne County Speedway’s Pete Jacobs Memorial on Sunday, September 6. Michael started 18th on the $13,000-to-win feature lineup.

“That was a great weekend for our team. We continue to prove that we have what it takes to pass cars and be a threat to win. We still have some things to work on, but we’re pretty pumped with the current pace we are on,” Michael said, driver of the Michael Motorsports, Advanced Architectural Stone, Crown Battery, Fremont Fence Company, Pro-Tech Services, Wood Heating and Air Conditioning, Kear’s Speed Shop, Wings Unlimited, Big D’s Pizza, No. 8M sprint car. “I can’t thank my team enough for all of their hard work this weekend. We’re starting to build a pretty solid rhythm. I’m excited to see what the rest of the year has in store for us.”

Michael and Michael Motorsports will continue their 2020 campaign with another doubleheader in the Buckeye State, first returning to Attica Raceway Park for its season ending program on Friday, September 11, followed by a trip to Fremont Speedway or Sharon Speedway on Saturday, September 12. A decision regarding Saturday’s destination will be made later in the week.

Matt Westfall charges to a podium finish at Gas City

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (September 8, 2020) – A common trend, to say the least, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports put together another impressive display during the recent weekend, this time while at speed at Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, Indiana, on Friday, September 4. To no surprise, the Forest, Ohio-based, non-wing sprint car operation put on a passing exhibition, eventually capping the evening with a rally from 11th to finish third.

Westfall, driver of the Ray Marshall-owned/Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car, now owns two consecutive podium results in the Hoosier State, first winning a BOSS main event during Smackdown festivities at Kokomo on August 29, followed by his third-place finish at Gas City on Friday, September 4.

“It’s been a pretty solid year for us at Gas City. I think we have the potential to win a few more races this year, but to be in the hunt every week says a lot,” Westfall said, the 2019 BOSS Series champion. “I can’t say enough about this team, especially Ray Marshall. He gives us the opportunity to go out and race while also making sure the team is equipped with the means to be competitive, and above all, win races. We still have some time left on the clock this year. We’re going to do what we can to get Ray a few more trips to victory lane.”

Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will continue their 2020 campaign with a return to Gas City on Friday, September 11, all before joining USAC at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville on Saturday, September 12.

Abreu scores $10K at Attica; Pennsylvania next​

Dates: Friday and Saturday, September 4th-5th Event: Attica Ambush Series: All Star Circuit of Champions Track: Attica Raceway Park (Attica, Ohio) Rico Abreu A-Main Finishes (Start): Friday: 6th (22nd) Saturday: 1st (2nd)

Date: Sunday, September 6th Event: Pete Jacobs Memorial Series: Open Event Track: Wayne County Speedway (Orrville, Ohio) Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 22nd (14th)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (September 8, 2020) - Rico Abreu’s return to Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, proved to be a success story right from the start, not only concluding his visit to the home of “Ohio’s Finest Racing” with a pair of top-ten performances, but securing a $10,000 top prize, as well as a Hard Charger Award, in the process, each against Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions.

Abreu, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Self Made Racing/Davis Door Company/Salty’s BBQ/Wiser Golf/Whistle Stop Bar and Grill/Dancer Logistics/The Wiser Group/TGP/J. Davidson Scrap Metal/No. 24 sprint car, kicked-off Attica Ambush weekend at Attica Raceway Park with a sixth-place rally on Friday, September 4. Unfortunately, Abreu had to do things the hard way, working his way through the evening’s B-Main after not transferring through his respective heat race. The St. Helena, California-native lined up 22nd and climbed to sixth in 40 laps, securing the evening’s Hard Charger Award.

If things could not get any more impressive for the former Chili Bowl champion, Abreu bettered his Friday night performance with a Saturday night triumph, capping his Attica Ambush weekend with a $10,000 payday. The victory was Abreu’s second against the All Star Circuit of Champions in 2020, the first occurring at Muskingum County Speedway during Ohio Sprint Speedway.

Lining-up second on the 40-lap grid, the now six-time sprint car winner in 2020 had to first fend off Wooster, Ohio’s Trey Jacobs during the first 14 circuits, all before bettering two-time Series champion, Aaron Reutzel.

“I knew Reutzel was pressuring me, or somebody was pressuring me. You can kinda sense those things,” Rico Abreu said in Attica victory lane. “I moved around, but I was just way too free on the bottom. I could keep my car really propped up on the top. Just hats off to my team. We enjoy coming to Attica and we’re already looking forward to coming back.”

Despite a great start to the weekend, mechanical failure got the best of Abreu during Wayne County Speedway’s Pete Jacobs Memorial on Sunday, September 6; he was scored 22nd.

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2020 campaign with a three-race weekend at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania, on Thursday through Saturday, September 10-12. The 53rd running of the Tuscarora 50 will be the main attraction headlined with a 50-lap, $53,000-to-win main event on Saturday evening. The weekend will kick-off with back-to-back $6,000-to-win preliminaries.

Setters Scores Two Top 10s During Montana Round Up at Electric City Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GREAT FALLS, Mont. (Sept. 8, 2020) - James Setters delivered a pair of top-10 performances last weekend during the 26 th annual Montana Round Up hosted by Electric City Speedway.

Setters, who recently earned his second straight Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series championship at the track, kicked off the three-day 360ci winged sprint car show on Friday. He qualified 11th quickest, placed fifth in a heat race and won the B Main to lock into the main event. Setters maneuvered from 17th to 13th to cap the night.

"We had a little bit of a rough first night just figuring the car out," he said. "We hadn't raced it much and we did pretty well. We just started further back that night. That did give me some confidence that I could pass people."

Setters improved on Saturday, narrowly finishing second in a heat race before advancing from 13th to seventh in the main event.

"We set the car up a little bit looser," he said. "The track cleaned off and got sticky. I don't think it took rubber until the end. We got up there and were able to pass people in the middle to the top."

The event concluded on Sunday and Setters won a heat race to lock into the feature redraw. He pulled the No. 5 to line up on the inside of the third row.

"We definitely got better with the heat races all weekend," he said. "We got a good start and stayed in the lead the whole time. It definitely helps being up there and starting in a better position."

Setters battled a tight race car in the feature as he faded to a ninth-place result. It marked his 11th top 10 of the season in 14 races.

"We were happy with the weekend," he said. "I was just hoping to compete with these guys. This was one of the best races I've seen. There were 30 cars and 15 of them could win."

Sept. 4 - Electric City Speedway in Great Falls, Mont. - Qualifying: 11; Heat race: 5 (4); B Main: 1 (2); Feature: 13 (17).

Wilson Rallies to Score Seventh-Place Finish During All Star Show at Attica

Inside Line Promotions - ATTICA, Ohio (Sept. 8, 2020) - Greg Wilson earned a much-needed top-10 result last Saturday at Attica Raceway Park to cap a two-race weekend with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1.

The doubleheader began on a sour note for Wilson and his new Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics, DNC Hydraulics and Gear Off Road sponsored team, which invaded the track on Friday. Wilson qualified 27th quickest, but nearly overcame that by charging from seventh to fifth place in a heat race.

"We were excited to go to Attica," he said. "We went with what we'd normally do at Attica on Friday and it was a tough night. We just about made it out of the heat race, but we missed it by one. Then some of the problems we found on Saturday before the race showed up in the B Main on Friday. It got me looking at some things on the race car. We basically masked a problem on Saturday and had a lot better night."

Wilson ended in the B Main on Friday and found trouble with his race car on Saturday prior to the race. The team tried to remedy the problem and added help from a local mechanic.

"We've been saying all along we've needed a mechanic," Wilson said. "One of the guys who is local, Daniel Smith, helped and that was huge."

Wilson improved his qualifying, heat race and feature result on Saturday, ending with a charge from 13th to seventh in the main event. It marked his 19th top 10 of the season.

With momentum on his side the focus shifts to Central Pennsylvania as the 53rd annual Tuscarora 50 is this Thursday through Saturday at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal.

"I've always felt like at big races you have to treat it like any other race and not get overwhelmed because it pays $53,000 on Saturday," Wilson said. "Our goal is to be good by the night the money is on the line. The All Star points are what they are and the way you improve in points is to run good. We just need to go there and try to put it in the show the first two nights and get going better to be in position for Saturday. The Tuscarora 50 is a huge event and one that should be on everybody's bucket list."

Daniel Enjoys Fast Race Car During Debut at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 8, 2020) - Mason Daniel showed speed throughout his debut at Huset's Speedway last weekend.

"I really like that track," he said. "The first night in the main event the track was abrasive, but early in the night it was a good surface."

Daniel qualified 22nd quickest and advanced from sixth to fifth place in a heat race to lock into the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series main event on Saturday. High winds invaded the area prior to the A Main and the track took rubber quickly.

"The rubber started so soon," he said. "I had blistered off my right rear tire and was trying to limp it home the last half of the race. We had an open red come out and my crew told me I was on chords. Those last six laps I was just trying to make it to the checkered flag. It blew with two laps to go so I just pulled into the infield."

Daniel was credited with an 18th-place result.

The track surface was quicker on Sunday and Daniel showed improvement from the opener. He qualified seventh quickest in his group and placed fourth in a heat race to once again lock into the main event.

"The car felt really good and the track was really fast," he said. "I was the same speed as Sheldon (Haudenschild) in the heat as we battled for third. He got me on the start and then I just maintained with him."

Daniel lined up on the outside of the seventh row for the main event.

"I maintained for a while and then I got tight on the cushion and pulled the nose over so I lost a few spots," he said. "A bit after that someone got sideways in front of me and I had nowhere to go. We made contact with the spinning car and we ended up flipping. It's not the way we wanted to end the night or two days that had a lot of positives."

Daniel was unable to finish the race.

"We've picked up a lot of confidence over the last three weekends," he said. "I think we're definitely going the right way."

Daniel will head to Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan., for the Boot Hill Showdown this Friday and Saturday.

"I'm excited to get back to that place," he said. "I was really comfortable in the car last year. I showed up to a new track and it suited my driving style. We made the dash one night. Hopefully we can have similar speed this year."

Donny Schatz hard charges to a top-ten during Huset’s 20K finale

Dates: Saturday and Sunday, September 5th-6th Event: The Outlaws Return to Huset’s Speedway Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Track: Huset’s Speedway (Brandon, South Dakota) Donny Schatz A-Main Finishes (Start): Saturday: 6th (9th) Sunday: 8th (20th)

2020 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: 5038 points | Third (80-points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 8, 2020) - Donny Schatz’ return to the highbanks of Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, ended in consistent fashion, not only capping the two-day visit with a pair of top-ten performances, but the ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion advanced a total of 15 feature positions in 70 laps.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/DieHard/Advance Professional/Carquest Auto Parts/Technet Professional Automotive Service/Ford Performance/Mobil 1/Sage Fruit/Curb Records/Absolute Automation & Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Digital Ally/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, kicked-off his weekend with a sixth-place run during the $10,000-to-win preliminary on Saturday, September 5. The Fargo, North Dakota-native started ninth on the feature grid, solidifying his place with a third-place run during heat race action.

Undeterred by a tenth-row starting spot the following evening, forced to start deep after finishing fifth during his respective heat race, Schatz did big things on Sunday during the Huset’s Speedway weekend finale and rallied 12 spots to finish eighth, high enough to secure the evening’s Hard Charger Award for advancing the most positions during the $20,000-to-win main event.

With all results considered, Schatz remains third in the World of Outlaws championship chase, 80 points shy of the top spot, anchored by three victories and 28 top-ten appearances.

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their quest toward the 2020 World of Outlaws championship with a two-day visit to Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kansas, on Friday and Saturday, September 11-12. Each program will award $10,000 top prizes.

Schatz is a recent World of Outlaws winner in the Sunflower State, scoring the Outlaw Boot Hill Showdown at Dodge City on Friday, September 20, 2019.

Bullring, fairgrounds up this weekend

Another trip to the PA Sprint Series’ favorite bullring – Path Valley Speedway Park – and the season’s only appearance at the historic Bedford Speedway will make this a special weekend for area IMCA/RaceSaver competitors.

This will be the fourth PASS race for 2020 at Path Valley (one early show was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions), the track that has been hosting the series longer than any other currently on the schedule. Johnny Scarborough, Jeffrey Weaver and Landon Price have been winners so far, but all eyes will be on Wells Tannery’s Garrett Bard, who has moved into first place in the national IMCA/RaceSaver point standings. Bard has finished second in each of the three previous Path Valley races this year, and he had a win and a second in half a season of competition in 2019.

Late models, 270 and 600cc micro sprints, 4-cylinder thunder cars and 4-cylinder strictly stocks also will be on the program.

Gates will open at 4:00 p.m., with warm-ups starting at 6:00. Adult general admission is $10, $3 for kids 10 and under. Pit passes are $30, plus a $5 membership fee for first-time racers.

On Sunday, PASS joins the Laurel Highlands Sprint Series to co-sanction an IMCA/RaceSaver event at the Bedford Fairgrounds, where racing has been taking place since 1936. This card also will feature limited late models, semi-lates and 4-cylinders, and the PASS/LHSS race will have a special purse of $500 to win and $250 to start.

Garrett Bard was the winner in the only PASS appearance last year, a similar co-sanctioned event. Bard also is one of the winners there in LHSS competition this year, along with Josh Spicer and the late Brandon Hawkins, who died as a result of a workplace accident three days later.

Gates at Bedford also will open at 4:00 p.m., with racing set to begin at 6:30. Grandstand admission is $10, with kids 12 and under free. Pit passes are $25.

Some PASS teams also may be racing Friday night with LHSS at Clinton County Speedway.

Because the RaceSaver Nationals are taking place this weekend, no points will be awarded for this weekend’s races, so as not to penalize drivers heading for Nebraska.

Bacon Captures USAC Sprint Car Points Lead – Double Duty at Lake Ozark this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (September 4, 2020) – Kokomo Speedway victory lane continues to elude Brady Bacon.

But three consecutive nights of top-five runs at last weekend’s Kokomo Sprint Car Smackdown vaulted Bacon and the Hoffman Racing Fatheadz Eyewear No. 69 Sprint Car team to the top rung of the USAC National Sprint Car series points.

Bacon will get to enjoy that lead for at least one more weekend. With the USAC Sprint Cars idle this weekend, Bacon ventures to Eldon, Missouri’s Lake Ozark Speedway for a weekend of double-duty in the LOS 360 Nationals as well as the WAR Sprint Cars on both Saturday and Sunday.

Last weekend’s Smackdown began with Bacon timing in second-quickest among his qualifying group and then earning a transfer through heat race action before finishing out the night with a runner-up finish in the feature event.

“The Macho Man” had to work harder on Friday night, gridding the feature 13th after timing in fifth-fastest in his group. Bacon made the most of it, rallying from seven rows deep to capture a fifth-place finish and secure a position in Saturday night’s “King of the Hill” pole shuffle.

Bacon topped the King of the Hill to earn the pole position for the feature and led the way for 27 of 40 circuits before slipping to fourth in the closing circuits.

Now in position to capture a third USAC Sprint Car title, series action resumes at Bloomington and Putnamville in Indiana next week on September 11-12.

But first, it’s time for some winged 360-ci and non-wing 410-ci WAR action at Lake Ozark Speedway this weekend.

Brady Bacon Racing is bolstered by the support of partners including Hoffman Auto Racing, Fatheadz Eyewear, Champion Oil, Gene Franckowiak, Drivewfx.com, Elliott’s Custom Trailers, ATC Trailers, Tel-Star Technologies, Dragonfly Aviation, Lykins Oil, Triple X Race Co., Hoosier Tire, XYZ Machine, Heath Clips Lawn Care, FK Indy, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Rod Ends, Specialty Rigging, Keizer Wheels, Purple Heart Foundation, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Smiley’s Racing Products, R&R Enterprises, DMI, ProGlide Coatings, Chalk Stixx, Wilwood Engineering, Lajoie Seats, Smith Precision Products, Allstar Performance, Simpson Racing Products, MyRacePass, Schroth Racing, Saldana Racing Products, KSE Racing Products, King Racing Products and Schoenfeld Headers.

2020 Quick Stats: 52 races, 9 wins, 24 top-fives, 31 top-tens.

Up Next: Lake Ozark Speedway “LOS 360 Nationals” and WAR non-wing Sprint Cars on Saturday and Sunday in Eldon, MO.

Reutzel Set to Ambush Attica after another All Star Win to Pad Series Points Lead

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (September 4, 2020) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team exhibited their resilience during last weekend’s All Star Circuit of Champions swing through Pennsylvania.

With the scheduled four-race slate reduced to three due to a Friday night rainout at Williams Grove Speedway, Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution No. 87 Triple-X Sprint Car team shook off a Thursday night disappointment at Grandview Speedway to post a runner-up finish at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night and then the team’s ninth All Star triumph of the season at Bedford Speedway on Sunday night.

“I couldn’t be more proud of how professional our team is, to come back after everything that has been going on and win the way that we did,” Reutzel said after his second consecutive triumph at Bedford. “This is a win that you can be proud of.”

Reutzel and company will try to carry that momentum into this weekend’s All Star Circuit of Champions “Attica Ambush” at Ohio’s Attica Raceway Park on Friday and Saturday.

Reutzel kicked off last weekend’s set of events by establishing Thursday night’s fastest time of 11.713 seconds in qualifying at Grandview Speedway aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine.

It was a trend that continued throughout the weekend with Reutzel putting the No. 87 Sprint Car atop the qualifying speed charts on all three nights.

And after winning Thursday night’s Dash, Reutzel led 31 of the initial 34 laps and was in command as the white flag flew only to be spun out entering turn one. Relegated to the tail due to the 360-spin rule, a near-certain win was transformed into a 20th-place finish.

Reutzel and the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspension crew shook it off in short order, timing in fastest again at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night and then climbing from sixth to capture runner-up honors in the Kramer Klash feature event.

“We had a really good car for the feature, we just had a bleeder issue that made us bad on restarts,” Reutzel recalls. “It took us a few laps to get going and when we had that last caution with a couple of laps to go, we couldn’t get going good enough to win it.”

Reutzel and the Fischer Body Shop team finished out the weekend with Sunday night’s statement win at Bedford.

After another quick-time and another Dash win to the earn the pole position for the feature, Reutzel raced into the lead on a lap three restart and never looked back en route to his 13th overall win of 2020.

“We just tested some things in the heat and then we fine-tuned for the Dash and it was really good, we didn’t change anything for the feature,” Reutzel explains. We got a good restart and he left the door open for me to slide him. After that, fuel was my only concern but we were able to make it.”

With his ninth series win of the season, Reutzel has opened up a 92-point advantage in his quest for a third consecutive All Star Circuit of Champions title with a dozen events remaining on the schedule.

“Aside from how Thursday night ended, all-in-all it was a good weekend for our team, we just want to keep it going,” Reutzel sums up.

Reutzel and company will try to keep the All Star Circuit of Champions success going at Attica Raceway Park on Friday and Saturday.

2020 Quick Stats: 63 races, 13 wins, 32 top-fives, 44 top-tens.

Next Up: All Star Circuit of Champions at Attica (OH) Raceway Park’s “Attica Ambush” on Friday and Saturday.

BRODY ROA RACING AT INAUGURAL CAS SPRINT CAR RACE THIS WEEKEND AT CENTRAL ARIZONA SPEEDWAY

(Cypress, CA, September 3, 2020) For the first time since Indiana Midget Week in June, Southern California racing star Brody Roa will be back in action this Saturday and Sunday, September 5th and 6th, in the inaugural races for the CAS Sprint Car Series. The races will take place at the Central Arizona Speedway in Casa Grande. Racing will begin at 7:00 P.M. each night.

With the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series parked for all but two races in March due to the COVID-19 crisis, perennial contender Roa has been chomping at the bit to get into a racecar. However, the 29-year-old veteran did not have plans on racing this weekend’s 360 race as his team sold its 360 powerplant after winning the USAC West Coast Series championship in 2016. His plans changed when Taft, California car owner Jayson May called last weekend and asked him if he would like to drive his beautiful #8M at Casa Grande. It did not take any arm twisting as Roa jumped at the golden opportunity. So, early Saturday morning, Roa, his dad Brett, and crew chief Zac Bozanich will hop in the car for the 435-mile trip to Casa Grande.

While not racing, the B.R.P. team has been on the track for a couple practice sessions this year at Southern California’s Perris Auto Speedway. The last time out they had wings on the car and there is the possibility that Roa may contest his first wing race before the year is over.

While “The Pride of Garden Grove” has not gotten his usual dose of racing this year, life has been remarkably busy. The veteran driver and his wife Tailor have been busy getting ready for the arrival of baby Addison who is due on October 1st. In addition, they have been taking their one-year-old lab, Daisy Duck, to obedience classes. Thus far, the dog seems to be conducting her own classes and still marching to her own beat!

For fans who would like to watch Roa in action at this weekend’s race, the Central Arizona Speedway is located at 512 S. Eleven Mile Corner in Casa Grande, Arizona (85194). The track phone number is (520) 709-0718 and the track website is at the following link http://centralarizonaspeedway.com/

Roa and the team would like to thank the following for being part of the 2020 campaign. HD Industries, Burris Racing, Competition Suspension, Sander Engineering, Biker Bruce Fisher, K-1 Race Gear, Molecule, Rod End Supply and Baldwin Filters. If you or your company would like to jump on board and receive recognition for the remainder in 2020 and into the 2021 season, please give the talented racer a call at (714) 932-7994 or E-mail brodyroa91@gmail.com.

Dominic Scelzi Eager to Return to Huset's Speedway This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 3, 2020) - Dominic Scelzi is looking forward to a big weekend at Huset's Speedway.

Scelzi captured a runner-up result at the high-banked oval in Brandon, S.D., approximately a month ago. He returns this weekend for a $20,000-to-win World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader that runs Saturday and Sunday.

"I'm really excited to head back to Huset's Speedway this weekend," he said. "We had a great run there during our debut a few weeks ago. We were coming on strong at the end of the race so hopefully we can start this weekend where we ended that night and be a contender right out of the box."

Scelzi won a heat race and finished second in both a dash and the main event during an Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions race at Huset's Speedway on Aug. 2. This weekend his sights are set on topping his season-best World of Outlaws result of ninth, which he earned a little more than one week ago.

Scelzi is also eager to get back to the track following a frustrating weekend with the World of Outlaws. He qualified 21st quickest before advancing from seventh to sixth place in a heat race and from 18 th to 14th in the main event last Saturday at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo. Unfortunately, Sunday's show at I-80 Speedway was a rough one for the team.

"We had mechanical problems and blew a tire so it was just a tough night," Scelzi said. "We weren't able to finish either the heat race or B Main despite being in a transfer position in both races. We're looking forward to rebounding this weekend at Huset's."

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 29 - U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo. - Qualifying: 21; Heat race: 6 (7); Feature: 14 (18).

Aug. 30 - I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. - Qualifying: 17; Heat race: DNF (5); B Main: DNF (13).

SEASON STATS -

47 races, 2 wins, 15 top fives, 23 top 10s, 33 top 15s, 37 top 20s

UP NEXT -

Saturday and Sunday at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series

Brian Brown Venturing to Williams Grove, Port Royal and Selinsgrove This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 3, 2020) - Brian Brown is bound for Central Pennsylvania this weekend.

This marks the fourth straight season his team has ventured to 'The Keystone State' to compete against the Pennsylvania Posse in the late summer and early fall. Brown is excited to tackle four races in four days following a frustrating weekend in the Midwest.

Aug. 29 - U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo. - Qualifying: 12; Heat race: 7 (4); B Main: 2 (1); Feature: 20 (20).

"It started off rough by getting run over by a push truck (going out for qualifying)," Brown said. "Then it ended rough by running into the back of another car and knocking my nose wing off."

Aug. 30 - I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. - Qualifying: 28; Heat race: 6 (7); B Main: 5 (5).

"It was just kind of a head scratcher for us as we normally have speed at the big, half-mile tracks, but we unloaded a bit off out of the trailer and we never got caught up all night," Brown said.

UP NEXT - Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa.; Saturday and Monday at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa.; and Sunday at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa.

"I always look forward to our Pennsylvania swing and the Month of Money out there," Brown said. "There's lots of great tracks and great fans starting this weekend at Williams Grove, Port Royal and Selinsgrove. With the big money on the line next week we figured we would get a head start and get some laps at the places that will pay the big money the next month."

By Mike Swanger

Some of the top sprint car drivers from the region are expected to compete for the $13,000 to win Pete Jacobs Memorial this Sunday as many local drivers will try and take home the big prize money. This years race will be unsanctioned and open to any and all 410 c.i. sprint cars.

Paul Nienhiser Pockets Win with MOWA; Second with WAR

PETERSEN MEDIA: Competing against both the MOWA and WAR on Friday night at Tri City Speedway in Granite City, IL, Paul Nienhiser nearly completed the sweep as he won with the wing and came up just short in non-wing action.

“It was great to get a win, and have some fun in the non-wing car,” Nienhiser said. “I really didn’t know what to expect since it had been about a year since my first crack at non wing racing and had a blast. Thanks to Matt Hummel with FK Indy for hooking me up with a great shock package that allowed us to have the night we did.”

Drawing the seventh starting position in his MOWA heat race, Nienhiser would flex his muscle and rack up the passing points aboard the CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil/Mason Sound/Innovative Design backed No. 9x machine has he worked his way up to finish second.

Sitting as the nights high point guy, Nienhiser would find himself in the redraw where the two-pill put him on the front row of the feature. Fighting an engine stumble on the start, Nienhiser would still put himself out in the lead when things got underway.

Setting the pace, Nienhiser would soon find himself in traffic and admittedly was too nice navigating through the slower cars and it allowed Joe B. Miller, and Carson McCarl to close in on him.

Swapping the top spot for several laps, Nienhiser would actually fall back to third late in the race and traffic was tough on the lead trio and it turned into a high-speed game of chess.

With five to go, Nienhiser would power back into the top spot, but the yellow would fly and negate his pass. The final restart of the night saw the Chapin, IL driver power into the top spot and he would never look back as he led the final five markers to pick up the win and move to within three wins of the most all time with MOWA.

In WAR Non-Wing action, Nienhiser got his night off to a nice start as he ended up sixth fastest overall in warmups, but his draw put him back in the ninth starting position for heat race competition.

Not quite knowing what to expect in racing action, Nienhiser would do a great job of searching all over the speedway as he fought his way to a second-place finish in that heat as well and was also high points guy for the night with the WAR.

Lining up by points in the WAR feature, Nienhiser would lead the field to green as he looked to double up on feature event wins for the night.

Getting the jump in this race as well, Nienhiser would lead early as Garret Aitken closed in and would soon challenge for the top spot. At the race’s halfway point, the Chapin, IL driver would fall back to second, but he would not give up on the top spot.

On the slick surface, Nienhiser’s confidence would grow lap by lap as he closed in on him in the closing laps. Pulling even as the white flag was displayed, Nienhiser nailed the bottom in one and two as the leader rode the cushion.

Heading into three and four, Nienhiser would look to make a big move on the last lap however slower cars would impede his progress and make his move challenging.

Opting to stay on the bottom, it would be a drag race to the checkered and Nienhiser would come up just short and run second in this feature.

“It was awesome to be that competitive in the non-wing car,” Nienhiser said. “I had a ton of fun. Thanks to Dennis McQuinn for hooking us up with a non-wing right rear and helping us out since all we have are winged right-rear tires. Hoping to end this year with a bang with whatever races we can hit in the next couple months.”

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil, Mason Sound, Innovative Design, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Wessler Bros. Agency, Bob Hawks Auto Body, Littleton Storm & Timber, Fierce Herbicide, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Kaeding Performance, Smith Titanium Products, Vortex Wings, Signature Signs and Design, and Team Simpson for their continued support.

2020 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-26, Wins-3, Top 5’s-8, Top 10’s-13

ON TAP: Nienhiser will be back in action this Saturday and Sunday for more non wing action as he battles with the WAR at Lake Ozark Speedway in Elden, MO.

Walter returns to IRA action at Beaver Dam Raceway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 2, 2020 – After nearly a month away from the track, Josh Walter and the Torque Racing team got back on the throttle in Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car action at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Saturday, Aug. 29.

Walter was among 29 IRA competitors on hand for the Jim Wipperfurth Memorial IRA event. The night got off to a strong start as Walter qualified sixth with a lap of 13.243 seconds around the third-mile clay oval.

After lining up third in the third 10-lap IRA heat race, Walter came home fourth to earn a spot in the 30-lap A-main and a spot in the first four-lap IRA dash. The 15th-year driver started fifth in the first IRA dash and worked past Brinton Marvel to finish the four-lap race in fourth place.

Walter started seventh in the Jim Wipperfurth Memorial headliner and raced in the top 10 in the opening laps on a rapidly changing track surface, which started to lay rubber during the course of the race.

Walter attempted to work both the high and low lines in and an effort to gain a few spots and was running just outside the top 10 when contact with Scott Biertzer along the frontstretch resulted in Walter spinning to a stop near the entrance to turn one to bring out a yellow flag on lap 17.

The spin relegated Walter to the rear of the field with 13 laps to go. The Plymouth, Wis. driver worked the rubber to maneuver his way past Todd Daun, Hunter Custer and Kris Spitz in the closing laps en route to a 17th-place finish in a race won by Jordan Goldesberry.

After suffering through a string of mechanical malfunctions and on-track incidents in recent IRA events, Walter was pleased to bring the car home in one piece after showing good speed throughout the night.

“We are happy to have the fuel pump and electrical issues straightened out that came up during the All Stars race at Plymouth and caused us to drop out before the start of the IRA A main at Antigo where we had earned the pole,” Walter said. “After everything we’ve dealt with this year, we were hoping for a good, clean night with minimal problems and that is pretty much the way it turned out.”

Walter and the Torque Racing team are planning to compete in an IRA tripleheader this weekend at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, Sept. 4, The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 5 and 141 Speedway in Francis Creek, Wis. on Sunday, Sept. 6.

Spectator gates open at 5 p.m. and warm ups start at 6 p.m. with hot laps, qualifying and hot laps to follow for the Harry Neitzel Tribute Race at the Dodge County Fairgrounds on Friday, Sept. 4.

Grandstand gates open at 4:30 p.m. with hot laps slated for 5:30 p.m. with qualifying and racing to follow at The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, Sept. 5.

Gates open at 2 p.m. qualifying at 6 p.m. and racing to follow at 141 Speedway on Sunday, Sept. 6.

For those unable to attend, all three races will be broadcast live on pay-per-view at floracing.com.

“If all goes well, are planning to run the majority of the remaining IRA races,” Walter said. “We are looking forward to a busy September schedule and hopefully we can start putting together some better finishes in the A mains.”

Torque Racing sponsors for the 2020 season included JDV Lawncare, Brittany's School of Dance, Sheboygan by Owner, Plymouth Tap, SCA Inc., Doug's Quality Beef, Cow Pies, Full Throttle Ink, Lakehouse Bar & Grill, Home Transitions, Oostburg Concrete, Services, RC Custom Design and Pedal Down Promotions.

Williamson Excited to See Progress During Two-Day Show at Lake Ozark Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - COLUMBIA, Mo. (Sept. 2, 2020) - Garet Williamson took last weekend off from competing.

But the Bryant Paver Motorsports driver wasn't totally separated from racing. He watched the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races on DIRTVision and tried to pick up a thing or two to take into this weekend.

The 20-year-old Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour rookie is riding a strong season filled with momentum and confidence into Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., this Saturday and Sunday to compete with the ASCS Warrior Region during the 11th annual LOS 360 Nationals.

"It's always nice to relax, but at the same time you always wish you were at a race track," Williamson said. "I would always much rather be out there racing, but it's nice to watch once in a while.

"It makes me more anxious to get back to the track and race, especially watching the Outlaws guys. You can learn so much by watching them and there are so many things you can take away from it. So I love to sit down and watch them."

A year ago, Williamson made his debut in a sprint car in front of the hometown crowd at Lake Ozark Speedway. Since then, he's won two events at the track.

Williamson's latest triumph came two weeks ago. He's hoping to carry that confidence into this weekend's event and celebrate another trip to Victory Lane in front of friends and family.

"We have two wins there, with my first win coming there and picking up the win two weeks ago," he said. "I'm always excited to get back to that place. It always races good.

"Actually, I had my first sprint car race in this event last year, so it will be cool to see how far we have come as a team in a year. We get to run in front of the home fans and hopefully we can put on a show."

SEASON STATS -

24 races, 3 wins, 6 top fives, 9 top 10s, 12 top 15s, 17 top 20s

Justin Sanders and Antaya Motorsports Score 2nd Win Together in 2020 as Sanders Wins First Career Race at Petaluma Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: For the last decade Justin Sanders has been a forced to be reckoned with at most tracks in Northern California racking up numerous wins. Sunday night the Aromas, CA driver was able to add another track to that list as he broke through and won his first career feature event at Petaluma Speedway.

“Petaluma has been a place that has been tough on me year after year,” Sanders said. “We had a couple seasons where we racked up a ton of wins all over, but this place eluded us, and it feels cool to finally get into victory lane there.”

Returning to the seat of the Antaya Motorsports No. 16a machine on Sunday night, Sanders opened his night up by timing the Fire Protection Management/Alkaline 88/North County Plastering backed entry in ninth fastest in time trials.

Picking up the popular win his heat race, Sanders would propel himself into the redraw where the seven-pill placed him in the inside of the fourth row for the 25-lap feature event.

On the hooked up and rough Petaluma Speedway surface, Sanders would have his spurs synched up tight as he began working his way forward. Getting into fifth on the first lap, Sanders would shoot into fourth on a lap two restart.

Working into the third position on the eighth lap as the field got into traffic, Sanders would then go to work on Andy Forsberg who raced in front of him.

Able to work by Forsberg on the 11th lap, Sanders then had Ryan Robinson in his crosshairs as he caught the leader as traffic was extremely tricky on this night.

Working into the lead on the 17th lap, the caution would fly one lap later giving Sanders clear track, but it would put the field back on his rear bumper.

The final seven laps of the race would see Sanders and Forsberg pull away from the rest of the field. While Forsberg would do all he could to pace the No. 16a machine, Sanders was having none of it as he was able to race to his first ever feature event win at Petaluma Speedway.

“Thanks to Larry Antaya and all the names on this car for making this all possible,” Sanders said. “2020 wasn’t the year that we had planned with this car, but we have been good in it when we have brough it out and it is great to get another win in it.”

Justin and Larry Antaya Motorsports would like to thank Fire Protection Management, Alkaline 88, North County Plastering, Roadside 24 Hour Service, Wicked Cushion, FK Rod Ends, DMI, Triple X Race Co., Walker Filtration, FK Shocks, and Wings Unlimited for their support in 2020.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 13, Wins-2, Top 5’s- 5, Top-10’s- 7

ON TAP: Justin Sanders and Antaya Motorsports are unsure where they will be next at the time of press.

Patriot Sprint Tour Loses to Mother Nature, Two Shows Now Scheduled for September 18 at Penn Can

(Susquehanna, Pa) In what has been an unideal season for the A-Verdi Storage Containers Patriot Sprint Tour, more bad luck was presented to the tour Friday night they made its first return to Penn Can in 13 years.

28 cars were signed in with drivers from New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. 2019 Patriot Series Champion, Davie Franek won the first heat followed by PST Newcomer, Dave Axton. 3 time series champ and all-time winningest driver on the tour, Chuck Hebing would score the third heat win.

Then rolling out was Bonnell’s Rod Shop Dash for Cash where it was won by PST Rookie of the year contender, Dallas Schott. During Schott’s Dash interview, rain began to fall which would delay the B-Main that was scheduled up next.

As rain continued to hit the speedway for the next hour, the track management at Penn Can was left with no choice but to cancel the rest of the evening.

With an agreement between the Patriot Sprint Tour and Penn Can, the B-Main and A-Main events will be made up on September 18. A completely new show will also take place this night at Penn Can.

These will likely be the final events of the 2020 season for the Patriot Sprint Tour. With fans still not allowed at racetracks in New York thanks to the policies set by Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), it is not possible to hold a PST event.

If another event is scheduled, please be sure to check patriotsprinttour.com and our Social Media pages for continued updates.

Tanner Carrick Closes Marysville Raceway Regular Season Out with Podium Finish

PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking full advantage of another Wednesday night show at Marysville Raceway, Tanner Carrick picked up another podium finish at the northern California facility as he finished third during the track’s regular season finale.

“It was another pretty good night for us in Marysville, CA,’ Tanner Carrick said. “We had a good car, and really came on strong at the end of the feature.”

Carrick got the night started off by timing the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed no. 83T machine in ninth fastest in qualifying time trials amongst the 31 cars jammed into the pit area.

Linin gup on the front row of his heat race, the Lincoln, CA driver took care of business as he raced his way to the win and earned a spot in the nightly redraw and guaranteed himself a starting position within the first four rows.

Pulling the five pill, Carrick would take the green flag from the inside of the third row on what was a hooked up and rough Marysville Raceway surface.

Moving into third on the race’s second lap after the leader endured issues, Carrick would run inside the Top-5 for much of the race though would slip back to fourth at the race’s halfway point.

Battling for the final spot on the podium in the closing laps with Andy Forsberg, the duo would exchange the spot on several occasions, before Carrick grabbed the position for good with four laps left in the race.

Carrick would go on to finish third and cap a strong season at Marysville Raceway that saw him pocket two wins earlier in the season.

“We battled hard with some strong cars, and brought home another good finish from Marysville Raceway,” Carrick said. “Thanks to these guys for continuing to work hard and put great cars on the track for us.”

Tanner Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, Interstate Oil, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Emerald, Timberworks Construction, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support

Gio Scelzi 13th with World of Outlaws at I-80 Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to the helm of the KCP Racing entry on Sunday night at I-80 Speedway with the World of Outlaws, Gio Scelzi would record a 13th place finish.

“We qualified really well, but after that I just made too many mistakes and it cost us in both our heat and feature,” Gio Scelzi said.

After a couple weeks out of the sprint car with other commitments, Scelzi and KCP Racing returned to action on Sunday night in Greenwood, NE where the Fresno, CA driver timed in ninth fastest aboard the Logan Contractors Supply, Inc./Aspen Aire/Royal Flooring backed entry.

A tough start in his heat race saw the youngster slip back and end up finishing fourth which would put him 13th on the starting grid.

When the race came to life, Scelzi would quickly pick up a couple of positions as he battled for a Top-10 position. After a couple of laps, Scelzi admittedly made a couple of mistakes that cost himself track position.

Battling with the likes of Daryn Pittman and Parker Price Miller, Scelzi would fall back to his starting position of 13th, and was unable to get going during the back half of the race.

When the checkered flag was displayed to the field, Scelzi capped his night off with a 13th place finish.

“I just made too many mistakes in the feature, and we couldn’t get going,” Scelzi said. “Looking forward to getting a couple of nights in the car this weekend and hopefully getting into a nice rhythm.”

The special non-points event offers up a change in format with group qualifying in each class setting each night’s lineups.

Setters Garners Second Straight Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series Championship

Inside Line Promotions - GREAT FALLS, Mont. (Sept. 1, 2020) - James Setters secured his second straight Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series championship last Friday at Electric City Speedway.

Setters nearly swept the night for the fourth time this season, which would have given him the clean sweep of feature victories this year in the Mike Quigley owned sprint car.

Instead, Setters, who charged from fifth to win a heat race, gave up his front row starting position in the A Main to tag the field.

"Cody Ryan said, 'I'll give you a $100 to start in the back,' so we went for it," he said. "I think on Lap 6 I was in third when a rock hit a spark plug. From then on I was running on seven cylinders. I made it up to second and almost passed Cody for the lead. If I would have run the bottom on the last lap I think I would have won.

"I was right on him. I almost got by him at one point, but didn't have enough engine since we were down a cylinder."

Setters narrowly finished second, which gave him a top-two run in all six series races this season en route to the title.

"I think it was worth it," he said. "I had a lot of fun coming from the back and running with less horsepower. I don't regret it. All I had to do was start the A Main to win the championship and that was my biggest goal.

"It means a lot, especially this season when we don't have a lot of races. It was nice to have something to show for the few races that we got to race."

Setters will pilot his family owned 360ci sprint car this Friday through Sunday at Electric City Speedway during the Montana Round Up.

Dover Returning to Huset's Speedway This Weekend for First Time Since August 2016

Inside Line Promotions - SPRINGFIELD, Neb. (Sept. 1, 2020) - Jack Dover is invading Huset's Speedway this weekend for the first time in a little more than four years.

Dover will take part in the Midwest Sprint Touring Series part of the doubleheader at the high-banked oval in Brandon, S.D., on Saturday and Sunday. An invitational field of 24 drivers was selected for each night.

"We've always had good results there so I'm looking forward to this weekend," he said. "We have the engine problem that slowed us down this summer and our car has been working really well. I'm hungry for a win right now and I'm expecting nothing less than a win."

Dover has been victorious at the track, reaching the Winner's Circle in August 2013. Since then he has produced a top-five performance during all four starts. Dover placed second in his lone visit in 2014 before he finished second twice in June 2016. He charged from 14th to fifth during his most recent race at the track in August 2016.

Dover has hit a recent snag after a strong start to his summer. After posting 12 top 10s in 13 races - including a trio of victories and 10 top fives - in June and July, Dover ran into more DNFs in August than the rest of his season combined.

"We've gone through everything on the car and Speedway Engines has done the same with the engines so I think we're in a good place," he said. "Hopefully we can get September started with a win or two."

Tankersley Excited to Make Debut at Monroe Motor Speedway This Saturday

Inside Line Promotions - HIGHLANDS, Texas (Sept. 1, 2020) - Channin Tankersley is heading to Louisiana, where he has three top-10 results during as many starts this year.

In fact, the Old School Racing driver has 11 straight top 10s in the state dating back to July 2012. But this Saturday will be a different storyline as the ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Lone Star Region event is being held at a track where Tankersley and his competitors don't have experience.

Monroe Motor Speedway in Monroe is a pavement track that now has dirt on it and Saturday's event will mark the first time Tankersley has been there.

"I've run most of the tracks in Louisiana going back to my mini sprint days," he said. "Having experience on them always helps, but this is a new track for everybody. It's one of those things where you start at your baseline and work on it from there. Generally speaking when you race at a bunch of different tracks you can go somewhere and compare it to another track to have an idea where you start at. We'll see how it goes once we unload. We're just happy to be racing."

Tankersley has made the most of his opportunity to race this year even though it hasn't been often. He has produced seven top fives and 10 top 10s in 15 starts, including a pair of top 10s in Kansas and Oklahoma during the ASCS Sprint Week last month.

"We haven't got to race a ton this year and we're not sure what the remainder of the year looks like so we're just excited to be able to race any time we can," he said.

Hagar Hoping for Continued Success at Lake Ozark Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - MARION, Ark. (Sept. 1, 2020) - A trip to Missouri is on tap for Derek Hagar, who plans on tackling the 11th annual LOS 360 Nationals this weekend.

Hagar will compete on Saturday and Sunday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., where he hasn't raced since September 2018.

"It's been a couple of years since I've been there," he said. "We didn't go there last year, but we finished second both nights during this event the year before. We had a good car and actually we've had a good car every time we've been there. I'm looking forward to getting back there and making some good laps."

Hagar recorded a feature victory at the dirt oval in 2017. That was the best result of a stout streak of six finishes in the top four, including five podiums, during six starts in 2017 and 2018.

"Any race track in Missouri we seem to fair well at," he said. "That dirt fits our style of racing. It gets pretty slick and early in the night it's fast, but not a heavy fast. It's more maneuverable and more racy."

Hagar enters the weekend with momentum as he has won five of his last eight races, including three of six starts in a sprint car.

"We haven't been able to race a lot this year so it's been great to have the success we have had," he said. "Hopefully that continues this weekend during both nights at Lake Ozark."

Bogucki Records Season-Best World of Outlaws Result at I-80 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 1, 2020) - Scott Bogucki posted his best World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series result of the season last Sunday at I-80 Speedway.

The SawBlade.com sponsored driver, who is a full-time Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competitor, made the most of a pair of nights with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt' last weekend. Bogucki placed 22nd on Saturday at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo., before the season-best run of 18th on Sunday.

"We qualified pretty well both nights and were good in the heat race both nights," he said.

Bogucki qualified 11th quickest and he finished fifth in a heat race on Saturday at U.S. 36 Raceway. That locked him into the main event.

"I know I've got the motor to qualify well," he said. "We don't qualify with what we're doing so I don't have much experience, but we don't seem to be horrible at it. That's good because qualifying sets up your whole night with the World of Outlaws.

"In the feature we didn't have the car great and I made some mistakes, but it was a good night."

Sunday played out in similar fashion for Bogucki, who qualified 13 th quickest and advanced a position in a heat race to finish third. He capped the night with an 18th-place showing in the A Main.

"I like to race the 410s when I can," he said. "It always takes me time to get used to the left rear tire. I have to do some different stuff with the setup than I'd normally do. I was pleased with the weekend."

Bogucki will get another opportunity to learn this weekend when he joins the World of Outlaws at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., on Saturday and Sunday. It will be his debut at the track.

"I'm looking forward to it," he said. "It's a quite famous track. I'm always excited to race my 410 and with the Outlaws. The more you race and the better competition you race with the better it will make you."

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 29 - U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo. - Qualifying: 11; Heat race: 5 (4); Feature: 22 (14).

Carney II Tackling LOS 360 Nationals This Weekend at Lake Ozark Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - EL PASO, Texas (Sept. 1, 2020) - John Carney II is bound for Lake Ozark Speedway this weekend for the 11th annual LOS 360 Nationals.

The SawBlade.com Xiphos saw blade and Mesilla Valley Transportation backed competitor will race with the ASCS Warrior Region on Saturday and Sunday at the oval in Eldon, Mo.

"I think last year I ran there four times," he said. "We ran third the first night and won the second night. Then we were there for this race Labor Day Weekend and it seemed like I came from a B Main to 16th during the opener and the final night we charged from 16 th to fourth."

Carney II has only visited the dirt oval those four times last year. The strong runs have given him added confidence going into this weekend.

"It definitely helps," he said. "That's part of the decision to go there and run. It pays pretty good money and we've ran in the top five three out of four times. Hopefully we can remain consistent there."

Carney II enters the weekend with momentum after earning his first 360ci sprint car win of the season - to go along with four 305ci sprint car victories - recently. The triumph kicked off a string of three top 10s in his last five races.

Henderson and Sandvig Racing Venturing to Huset's After Heartbreak at I-80

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 1, 2020) - Justin Henderson was dealt a strong dose of heartbreak when a Jacob's Ladder broke on the opening circuit of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series feature at I-80 Speedway Sunday night.

It relegated him to a 22nd-place finish and ruined what appeared to be a promising night that saw the Tea, S.D., native line up on the inside of the second row for the feature.

"It's hard to guarantee too much with the level of competition we were against, but I feel like we had a car capable of finishing up front," Henderson said. "It was just kind of a freak incident, but otherwise there's a lot to feel good about with the speed we had."

Henderson timed in 15th quickest among 35 drivers in attendance with a lap of 14.632 seconds. He then advanced forward two positions in a heat race to finish second and earn a spot in the dash. Henderson drew the No. 2 for the dash and finished third, securing himself the third starting spot in the A Main.

"We qualified decent and kept ourselves in position early in the night to get into the dash and that's the name of the game with the Outlaws," he said. "It's been a struggle for us all year in capitalizing on opportunities so it was nice to be on the other side of the coin for once."

At the drop of the green flag, Henderson jumped to the top of the track in an attempt to secure the third position. Unfortunately, he got into the outside guardrail. Henderson said he could tell something was wrong, but with the field getting strung out he regained his composure and settled into the sixth position by the first caution.

When the field returned to green flag action, the car was increasing hard to hold onto and Henderson found himself slipping backwards after restarts. As a result, he pulled off the track with a handful of laps remaining and was credited with finishing 22nd.

"I tagged the wall on the start and I wasn't sure what was wrong, but I knew it was something," he said. "When the field got spread out, we were actually all right, and I thought if we could go caution free, we'd be ok. Unfortunately, it didn't play out that way and we were just dead in the water with every restart."

Henderson and Sandvig will join the World of Outlaws for two nights of racing at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., this Saturday and Sunday.

The team competed at Huset's Speedway in early August during the Grand Re-Opening with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Stars Circuit of Champions and brought home a 15th-place finish. Henderson enjoyed the way the track was reconfigured and he is looking forward to bettering his results this weekend.

"One of the first things they did when they reopened was improve the banking of the track and as a driver it made it so much fun to race on," he said. "I'm looking forward to taking another crack at the place and I believe we're in store for a good weekend of racing."

Sides and Kaeding Consistent Throughout World of Outlaws Weekend in Midwest

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 1, 2020) - Sides Motorsports produced one of its best weekends of the season with Jason Sides and Tim Kaeding teaming up last Saturday and Sunday.

Kaeding guided the team to the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars on Saturday at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo., and a top-10 outing on Sunday at I-80 Speedway. Meanwhile, Sides advanced from 16th to 12th at U.S. 36 Raceway and from 20th to 11 th at I-80 Speedway.

"It was a pretty good run for both cars," Sides said. "Qualifying wasn't very good for either of us either night, but we got better as each night went on."

Kaeding overcame the 24th place qualifying result and an eighth-place run in a heat race at U.S. 36 Raceway to win the Last Chance Showdown from seventh. He continued to roll forward in the A Main by maneuvering from 19th to 11th.

Kaeding locked into the 16th starting spot in the feature at I-80 Speedway thanks to a fourth-place finish in a heat race. He and Sides, who started 20th, both used the bottom groove to rally toward the top 10.

"In the feature both cars got running the bottom really good," Sides said. "The top got further around. I got by TK at one point, but I got hung up behind someone and he got back around. I would have liked us both to finish in the top 10, but it was good to make the progress we did."

Kaeding's ninth-place finish was the team's seventh top 10 of the season. Sides' nine positions gained marked the third-most cars passed in the feature.

Next up is a trip to Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., this Saturday and Sunday.

"We've run well there at times so I'm excited to get back there," Sides said. "Tod (Quiring) will do a good job with the place and we're glad to have racing back at Huset's."

Paul Pokorski notches top-10 MSA showing
at Beaver Dam Raceway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) Sept. 1, 2020 – For the second time in his limited appearances behind the wheel of the No. 4 Pokorski Motorsports 360 Sprint Car during the 2020 campaign, 28-year veteran Paul Pokorski turned in a top-10 showing in Midwest Sprint Car Association A-main action at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Saturday, Aug. 29.

Pokorski, who is sharing seat time in the Pokorski Motorsports car this year with his 21-year-old son Alex, made his fifth and sixth starts of the 2020 season during the rain-shorted Russ Scheffler Tribute Night Plymouth Dirt Track Racing program on Thursday, Aug. 27 and the Jim Wipperfurth Memorial Night at Beaver Dam Raceway on Aug. 29.

On Aug. 27 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. 29 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars checked in for the special Thursday night racing program.

Pokorski opened the evening by starting fifth in the second 10-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car heat race. The 2014 MSA Masters Series champion led to sixth on the opening lap before battling back to pass rookie Austin Hartmann for fifth place on lap 3. Pokorski held on over the final seven laps to finish fifth in the race.

Pokorski then lined up third in the 15-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car B main and fell to sixth on lap 2 where he ran until a yellow flag was displayed on lap 11 for a spin involving Jack Vanderboom of Dousman.

Following the restart, Pokorski worked past Shane Wenninger to take fifth on lap 13, which is where he finished to earn the 21st starting spot in the 25-lap A main, which was later washed out by rain.

“Thursday night at Plymouth went okay,” Pokorski said. “We made smart changes and the car was surprisingly good in the B even though the result wasn't great. I was looking forward to running the feature and was disappointed when mother nature got the best of us.”

Alex Pokorski was scheduled to drive the Pokorski Motorsports car in a special Friday night PDTR program on Friday, Aug. 28, which was rained out.

On Saturday, Aug. 29, Paul Pokorski was among 31 MSA 360 Sprint Car drivers to check into the pit area for the second MSA event of the season at Beaver Dam Raceway.

Pokorski turned a lap of 14.499 seconds to place 20th in MSA group qualifying to earn an outside front row starting spot in the second 10-lap MSA heat race.

Polesitter Bill Taylor got the jump on the drop of the green flag, while Pokorski settled into second on the opening lap. Pokorski held on to second through a caution flag on lap 4 to advance to the 25-lap A main.

Pokorski started 12th in the 22-car MSA field and rode the low groove to ninth when the first of three red flags appeared on lap three for a three-car incident involving Adam Miller, Chris Clayton and Justin Miller, who flipped his machine in turn three.

After the restart, Pokorski dropped to 10th when the second red flag appeared for a flip in turn two involving Kurt Davis. On lap later, the third red flag of the race was displayed when Shane Wenninger flipped after contact with Justin Erickson in turn four.

As the track began to take rubber in the closing laps, Pokorski was among the first drivers to find the fast way around and he used the rubbered-up lane in the closing laps to record a solid 10th-place finish in a race won by MSA point leader Travis Arenz to tally the team’s second top-10 A-main showing of the 2020 season.

“I screwed up in qualifying and being in the third of four qualifying sessions already has it a little bit of a disadvantage due to the track conditions,” Pokorski said. “My mistake just made it that much worse. Nonetheless, that put us in a good starting spot for our heat race. The heat went okay and the car was pretty good.

“In the A main things were busy,” he said. “I ran the middle for a few laps and it wasn't working. I moved to the extreme outside and gained some momentum, but a caution came out and started us on the bottom. I lost a few spots trying to get going and get back to the top. By then, the rubber was coming in and I should have been running the middle. After the last caution, I found the rubber and passed a car or two. All together it wasn't a memorable result, but not terrible either.”

This weekend the Pokorski Motorsports team is set to take part in an MSA doubleheader starting with the fourth annual Harry Neitzel Tribute race at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, Sept. 4.

Also on the card will be the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series, along with the Modified division. Pit gates open at 3 p.m., spectator gates are set to open at 5 p.m. with warm ups at 6 p.m. and hot laps, qualifying and racing to follow.

On the following night, the team will return to The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. with the PDTR 360 supporting the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series.

Spectator gates open at 4:30 p.m. with hot laps and qualifying scheduled for 5:30 p.m. with racing to follow.

Paul Pokorski is expected to be behind the wheel for both nights.

“I'm looking forward to the upcoming two-day weekend,” Pokorski said. “Hopefully, mother nature will cooperate.

ALL STAR FAST: CJB & Marks Shine in Premier Events in Pennsylvania Big money races right around the corner as team continues to gel

CARLISLE, PA. - September 1, 2020 - One would not guess that the month of the September would be the busiest on the calendar for a race team. Yet, as the ninth month of 2020 begins, CJB Motorsports and Brent Marks are gearing up for one of the most race heavy portions of their schedule.

To wrap up the month of August, the team competed with the Ollies Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions in a series of events. On Thursday, August 27th, the #5 machine was in action at Grandview Speedway near Bechtelsville, Pa. Marks timed in 17th, finished 3rd in the heat race and 6th in the feature. The following nights action was scheduled to be held at Williams Grove Speedway near Mechanicsburg. Mother Nature washed away hopes of that event so the series moved onto Lincoln Speedway near Abbottstown, Pa. on Saturday, August 29th. The team timed in 6th, finished 5th in the heat race and started the feature in 18th. The #5 car was up to fifth before a tire change ended their charge. The weekend wrapped up with a stop at Bedford (Pa.) Speedway on Sunday, August 30th. The team timed in 5th, finished 4th in their heat race and 7th in the first dash. Marks went from 7th to 4th in the feature.

"We were pretty fast this weekend," said Marks, pilot of the #5 M&M Painting and Construction, BAPS Paints, Fredericksburg Eagle Hotel, Alkaline 88 Water, R.E. Pierson Construction Co., Wolfrun Landscapes, Nyce, Crete & Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn and Landscape, Ecynbro Trucking machine. "I feel like we really have a good program right now and we've been really strong especially towards the end of a race. The most important part. Very proud of this team. Lincoln we started 18 and got up to 5th but got tagged in the left rear tire late in the race and caused a flat. A lot of hard work just for that to happen."

September kicks off with a busy Labor Day weekend for CJB. Friday, September 4th will see the team at Williams Grove Speedway as they chase the season title there. On Saturday, September 5th and Monday September 7th, the team will be in action at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway. On Sunday, September 6th, the #5 can will be at Selinsgrove (Pa.) Speedway.

"I'm looking forward to a strong weekend and Friday night concentrating on getting our points lead back at Williams Grove," said Marks. "We have a lot of racing coming up and I'm looking forward to that! We have a chance to get us a few wins."

Ryan Robinson Scores Fourth Win of Season as he Triumphs at Marysville Raceway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Ryan Robinson and Weiher Racing continued on with their strong 2020 campaign over the last week as the team pocked their fourth win of the year during mid-week action at Marysville Raceway.

“We really have a great baseline for Marysville Raceway, and I felt like we had the car to beat all night on Wednesday,” Ryan Robinson said. “I could put our car anywhere I wanted, and it really helped us get through traffic and grab a win.”

Wednesday night during Marysville Raceway’s regular season finale, Robinson got the night underway by timing the Mako Farms, Inc./LP Holdings/RPI backed No. 14w entry in fastest in time trials.

Going from fourth to second in his heat, Robinson was safely in the nightly redraw where the three placed him in the second row for the 25-lap finale.

Getting into second on the opening lap, Robinson would take advantage of a rare Sean Becker miscue on the race’s second lap and take over the lead. On a very racy Marysville Raceway surface, Robinson set a torrid pace and was able to get through traffic with extreme precession.

A late race yellow set up an exciting finish as Robinson would find himself battling with Shane Golobic. With Golobic actually taking over the top spot, Robinson would counter and get back to the lead and go on to pocket his fourth win of the season.

Looking to double down on Sunday night at Petaluma Speedway, Robinson got off to another really strong start as he timed in second fastest in qualifying time trials.

Making a couple small adjustments before his heat race, the proved positive as Robinson was able to advance from his fourth starting position to pick up the win and again find himself in the all-important redraw that would set the feature event line up.

With Lady Luck on his side, the one pill put Robinson on the pole for the feature event. Not expecting the surface to ‘come back’ as much as it did in the feature, Robinson would find himself battling a bit of a tight racecar. Still able to lead the way early, Robinson would do a great job of fending off the likes of Justin Sanders and Andy Forsberg.

On the 16th lap Robinson would get too tight and he would fall back to second before biking on the 17th lap and bringing his machine to a stop. Going to the tail with just eight laps left in the race, Robinson would cap his weekend off with a 13th place finish.

“Big thanks to Todd Weiher, and this team for giving me a car that was fast enough to get two wins over the last week,” Ryan Robinson said. “It was great to grab another win on Wednesday, and we were all a little bummed with how Sunday ended after leading and running up front.”

Weiher Racing would like to thank Mako Farms, Inc., LP Holdings, Roseville Precision, Inc., Escalon Body and Frame, Seth’s Racing Engines, Papa Chuck, Threadz Design, JDS Tile & Construction, Inc., and Morrison Concrete for their support in 2020!

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-14, Wins-4, Top 5’s-8, Top 10’s-10

ON TAP: Robinson and Weiher Racing will have a couple weekends off before returning to action on 9/19 at Placerville Speedway.

Michael continues to pad stats at Attica; Ambush next

FREMONT, Ohio (August 31, 2020) – T.J. Michael has been all over the top-ten at Attica Raceway Park thus far in 2020, but with the All Star Circuit of Champions making their annual appearance during the two-day Attica Ambush on September 4-5, the “Texas Traveler” will feel a little extra pressure to deepen those stats and continue his top-ten stretch during All Star competition.

Whittall scores top-ten during Selinsgrove’s Jack Gunn

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

VINCENTOWN, N.J. (August 31, 2020) – After some time away from the seat to recover from a minor concussion, Vincentown, New Jersey’s Justin Whittall made his return to sprint car competition and visited Selinsgrove Speedway for Jack Gunn Memorial action on Saturday, August 29. Whittall’s break certainly did no harm, as the former URC racer turned 410 full-timer finished ninth during the $5,000-to-win program, moving forward after starting 11th on the grid.

“It feels great to be back in a sprint car,” Justin Whittall expressed, driver of the Brotherton Brewing Company, Beechwood Landscape Architecture and Construction LLC, Pioneer Auto Body, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Worldwide Bearings, FK Rod Ends, Stilo Helmets, JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Keizer Aluminum Wheels, Enterprise, Ground Blind Boys, No. 67 sprint car. “September is going to be busy, but we’re excited to get things rolling. It all starts this weekend with three races in three days.”

Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports will continue their 2020 campaign with a three-race swing over Labor Day weekend, set to visit Port Royal Speedway, Selinsgrove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway in consecutive fashion on Saturday through Monday, September 5-7. The pair of Central Pennsylvania half-miles have certainly been kind to Whittall in 2020, as the New Jersey-native has earned a combined three top-ten outcomes at Port and Selinsgrove since June 20.

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (August 31, 2020) – Despite kicking-off the recent weekend with a sour start at Grandview Speedway on Thursday, finishing 18th after getting upside-down during heat race competition, the ‘Jonestown Jet’ rebounded in a big way and capped his long weekend with back-to-back top-ten performances, one of which a top-five during Selinsgrove Speedway’s Jack Gunn Memorial on Saturday, August 29. Zearfoss finished fourth at the Selinsgrove half-mile, bumping ahead one spot after starting fifth on the grid.

Danny Dietrich reaches double-digit win mark; Four-race Labor Day weekend sweep on deck

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (August 31, 2020) – Officially reaching the double-digit win mark, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich captured his tenth victory of the 2020 season over the recent weekend, scoring a $5,000 payday during All Star Circuit of Champions competition at Grandview Speedway on Thursday, August 27.

Accomplished in dramatic fashion, to say the least, Dietrich’s winning move at Grandview occurred on the final lap, as contact between himself and race leader, Aaron Reutzel, resulted in Dietrich inheriting the top spot. The Gettysburg-native held on during the ensuing restart and now owns two All Star victories in 2020.

After a Friday night rain-out at Williams Grove Speedway, Dietrich’s recent weekend continued with All Star starts at Lincoln Speedway and Bedford Speedway on Saturday and Sunday, August 29-30.

On the path toward a second All Star victory in as many starts, Dietrich made contact with a lapped car while making a bid for the lead at Lincoln, ultimately causing the former track champion to lose the handle. Despite getting sent to the tail for completing a 360-degree spin, Dietrich recovered in fantastic fashion and finished sixth.

Dietrich eventually capped his weekend with a runner-up finish at Bedford Speedway, leading the first two laps before losing the top spot to eventual winner, Aaron Reutzel, after a restart with two laps recorded.

“That was a wild weekend, but we’re pumped to get the win at Grandview,” Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, No. 48 sprint car. “The month of September is going to be big. We have the opportunity to race for a lot of money right in our own backyard. We hope to put ourselves in great positions every night and contend for a win every time we are on the track.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will aim their focus on four events in four days during the coming weekend, set to visit Williams Grove Speedway, Lincoln Speedway, Selinsgrove Speedway, and Port Royal Speedway in consecutive fashion on Friday through Sunday, September 4-7. The weekend will cap with Port Royal Speedway’s historic Labor Day Classic awarding a $4,000 payday.

Amantea Looking Ahead After Frustrating Weekend Dampened by Mother Nature and Misfortune

Inside Line Promotions - SWEDESBORO, N.J. (Aug. 31, 2020) - Joey Amantea dealt with wet weather and misfortune during a frustrating weekend.

Amantea originally planned to climb behind the wheel of the Burke Family No. 54 for two nights of winged 360ci sprint car competition, but constant showers cancelled events at Penn Can Speedway in Susquehanna, Pa., on Friday and at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pa., on Saturday.

Amantea's lone race of the weekend came in a micro sprint on Sunday at Spirit Auto Center Speedway, where he placed 22nd after being caught up in a late incident.

"It was a frustrating weekend as we didn't get to do nearly as much racing as we planned due to rain," he said. "I guess Mother Nature had other plans for us and Sunday we just were never any good at all."

Amantea began Sunday night by advancing five positions in a heat race to finish fourth, which locked him into the A Main in the 19th starting spot. On a track that was hard to pass on, he advanced as high as 13th before hitting a rut on the white flag lap. That sent him flying into the infield and he was credited with the 22nd finishing spot.

"Pretty much anything that could go wrong did go wrong all night and we were just not very good at all," he said. "I thought we were going to salvage a top 15, but luck wasn't on our side and we ended up wrecked with a car needing repairs."

Next up for Amantea will be three nights of micro sprint competition. On Friday he'll head back to Spirit Auto Center Speedway looking for redemption in the wingless micro sprint before venturing to Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway in Newmanstown, Pa., on Saturday and Sunday for the Bud's Spring Service Labor Day Shootout. On Saturday Amantea will run a winged micro sprint and on Sunday he will be in a wingless micro sprint.

"You've got to have a short memory in this sport because it's always going to be filled with ups and downs," he said. "Up to this point we've been fortunate to have more success then struggles. I'm looking forward to three nights of racing and seeing if we can't put last week in the rearview mirror with some good results."

Westfall wins BOSS Feature during Kokomo’s Smackdown

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (August 31, 2020) – The Kokomo Sprint Car Smackdown was not too kind to Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports during the first two rounds on Thursday and Friday, August 27 and 28, but the team rebounded in a big way on Saturday night and scored a victory during the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) portion of the program.

Certainly no stranger to victory lane during BOSS non-wing action, the 2019 Series champion and four-time winner started sixth on the feature grid and worked his way to the front in a hurry, mastering the top groove, as well as the bottom groove, to secure his place on the Kokomo Speedway victory lane platform. The BOSS Smackdown win is a second consecutive for Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports, now with five Series victories over two seasons.

Each occurring in the state of Indiana, Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports now own two victories in 2020 with the first registered at Gas City I-69 Speedway on July 17.

“This feels pretty good. The week didn’t start off too hot for us, but to rebound like this and get a win says so much,” Matt Westfall said, who kicked-off his Smackdown visit with 22nd and 24th-place finishes during USAC events. “I can’t thank Ray Marshall and the entire team enough for their support over the last few years. We are out here having a lot of fun. Getting a win in front of a packed house at Kokomo only makes things better.”

“I couldn’t be more proud of the team,” Ray Marshall continued, owner of the Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car. “Matt (Westfall) kept his focus all weekend and it really shows. That can be hard to do, especially at a big event like the Smackdown. We know we are capable of doing big things. I’m more than confident big things will continue to happen for this race team.”

Starks Tackling World of Outlaws Event at Huset's Speedway This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - PUYALLUP, Wash. (Aug. 31, 2020) - Trey Starks is heading to Huset's Speedway this weekend for a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event.

The Gobrecht Motorsports driver will compete on Saturday and Sunday at the high-banked oval in Brandon, S.D., where Starks made his debut earlier this month. He qualified 12th quickest overall and advanced from fifth to third place in a heat race before capping the night with a 20 th-place result in the A Main.

"I felt like we were pretty solid up until the feature," he said. "It was nice to get on a short track again. Come feature-time we didn't make the adjustments that we needed, but we had a solid qualifying effort and ran well in the heat race. I think we have a good baseline to start with this weekend. We just have to tune it up for the feature when the track gets slick. In a lot of ways it emulates Skagit Speedway, so that works into our hand a little bit.

"I'd like to get rolling consistent again. To make both features would be nice. We'd like to start from there and build momentum."

The remainder of the 2020 season is up in the air for Gobrecht Motorsports. The team competed full time at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, for the second straight year. The track announced last week that the final four races of 2020 were canceled because of COVID-19 concerns. Starks finished ninth in the championship standings after earning five top 10s.

"It was definitely different," he said. "It was hard to get a rhythm going. I'm happy with some of our results. Early in the Knoxville season we had a combination that wasn't working. The opportunity to build on something was there, but it seemed like there wasn't enough races and we didn't string enough good results together to build momentum. I'm hoping we can end the season on a strong note during however many races we have remaining."

Daniel Moves Forward in World of Outlaws Features at U.S. 36 Raceway and I-80 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Aug. 31, 2020) - Progress was the key word for Mason Daniel last weekend during a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader.

Daniel moved forward in both main events as he made his 410ci winged sprint car debut at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo., on Saturday and at I-80 Speedway on Sunday.

"We've been better in the main events recently and that's a combination of me figuring it out more and the car being close to what I like," he said. "It's definitely a confidence boost going forward in these main events and passing a lot of good drivers."

Daniel qualified 22nd quickest, placed eighth in a heat race and finished sixth in the Last Chance Showdown to garner the final transfer position into the A Main on Saturday at U.S. 36 Raceway.

"I think getting more comfortable at that track showed in the main event," he said. "I've ran well there in a 360, but this was my first time in a 410. Getting used to that track at speed and managing the hole going into turn one was key. The more laps we did the more comfortable I got."

That showed in the feature as Daniel advanced from 24th to 19 th.

"I think I made it up to 17th, but I made a mistake late in the race and lost a couple of spots," he said. "I got sideways on the frontstretch a bit and lost two positions on a restart."

Daniel continued to run well on Sunday at I-80 Speedway, where he qualified 11th quickest. A sixth-place result in a heat race relegated him to the Last Chance Showdown. Daniel finished third to transfer into the last row of the main event.

"I really like that track," he said. "We qualified well, but I made a mistake in the heat race that cost us. We got more laps in the LCS so that was helpful. We were able to transfer and moved forward in the feature. I had a good car and could go anywhere I wanted to."

Daniel charged from 23rd to 15th, which was tied for his third-best result of the season.

Next up is a trip to Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., this Saturday and Sunday. It will mark Daniel's debut at the high-banked oval.

"I'm excited to race there for the first time," he said. "I've seen some video of races in past years and the one they just had a few weeks ago. I'm getting more comfortable on shorter tracks so I'm looking forward to racing at Huset's."

Kerry Madsen Scores Top 10s at U.S. 36 Raceway and I-80 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Aug. 31, 2020) - Kerry Madsen posted a pair of top-10 results during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition in the Midwest last weekend.

The Killer Instinct Crossbows sponsored Big Game Motorsports driver placed seventh at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo., on Saturday and eighth on Sunday at I-80 Speedway. Madsen now has 15 top 10s, including four in a row, with the series this season. That ranks ninth overall.

The action began with Madsen qualifying second quickest on Saturday at U.S. 36 Raceway. A runner-up result in a heat race locked him into the dash.

"We drew the No. 5 for the dash and got the front wing knocked off on Lap 1 so we finished sixth," he said. "We started sixth in the feature and dropped back a little. We came on strong toward the end and got up to fifth before finishing seventh. Back where I was it was pretty elbows up. It was tight so if you screwed up you'd lose a lot of spots. I was pushing pretty hard on the top. We had a pretty good race car and it was a shame we dropped back to seventh. That's Outlaw racing. You try to gain a spot and end up losing a spot."

Sunday played out in a similar fashion at I-80 Speedway, where Madsen qualified fourth quickest overall and won a heat race.

"We qualified well and won the heat," he said. "We drew the No. 6 in the dash and ended up seventh, which was a bummer because we got stuck on the bottom on the start of the feature. A couple of double-file restarts we were on the inside, too, and would lose spots. If we had a better start and restart we were a top-five car."

Madsen's eighth-place run was his 27th top 10 of the season.

He returns to Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., this Saturday and Sunday with the Outlaws. Madsen placed third at the track earlier this month.

"If you can qualify well it sets up the whole night," he said. "I see the track being very similar, which is good. Hopefully it translates into a good weekend for us."

Aug. 29 - U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo. - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 2 (1); Dash: 6 (5); Feature: 7 (6).

MSA 360 Sprint Car competitors set to chase
Harry Neitzel Tribute hardware

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 31, 2020 – As the heated battle for the 2020 Midwest Sprint Car Association title heads into the home stretch, a deep and talented contingent of MSA competitors are gearing up for the prestigious fourth annual Harry Neitzel Tribute Race Friday, Sept. 4 at the Dodge County Fairgrounds “horsepower half mile” in Beaver Dam, Wis.

The special event to honor the universally respected Neitzel, who was one of the MSA’s biggest supporters, has grown into one of the crown jewel events on the MSA schedule.

To date, three different MSA drivers have claimed Harry Neitzel Tribute Race hardware. Five-time MSA champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee took home the inaugural event in 2017, West Bend’s Kevin Karnitz claimed the victory in 2018 and the now retired Jim Melis of Glenbeulah was the 2019 race winner.
Among the favorites to visit victory lane this year will be point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan, who has tallied four MSA A-main victories, including three triumphs at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. and the most recent MSA event at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Saturday, Aug. 29.

Three-time MSA champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh is hot on Arenz’s heals in the spirited race for this year’s MSA series title on the strength of four A-main victories, including two at The Plymouth Dirt Track, one at Beaver Dam Raceway and another at Gravity Park Speedway in Chilton.

Arenz heads into Friday’s Harry Neitzel Tribute Race with a slim five-point advantage over McMullen in the chase for the 2020 MSA title with just five points races remaining on the season.

The MSA’s all-time winningest driver in A-main competition, Kurt Davis, who stands third in MSA points with a pair of A-main victories at The Plymouth Dirt Track and Outagamie Speedway in Seymour so far this season, will be looking to be the Harry Neitzel Tribute Race’s first repeat winner.

Other top contenders expected to compete include 2018 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car champion Justin Miller of Plymouth, second-year competitor Justin Erickson of Plymouth, past MSA champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett, 2014 MSA Masters Series champion Paul Pokorski of West Bend, Tim Haddy of Waupun, Tony Wondra of Campbellsport and Adam Miller of Plymouth.

Pokorski, Adam Miller and former MSA champ Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove each have one victory in MSA A-main action this season.

Also on the card will be the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series, along with the Modified division.

Pit gates open at 3 p.m., spectator gates are set to open at 5 p.m. with warm ups at 6 p.m. and hot laps, qualifying and racing to follow.

Spectator admission is $25 for adults with kids 6-12 $5 and children 5 and under admitted free. Pit admission is $30.

Round 3 At Land of Legends Falls To Rain, Rescheduled To Sep. 26

CRSA Sprints Media Contact: Steven Ovens – turnfivemedia@gmail.com

Press Release – August 30th, 2020 – Coach Fran photo

(SODUS, NY) – The storylines were there, the table was set and the Super Gen Products CRSA contingent was ready to feast on Paul Cole’s Land of Legends Raceway in what potentially may have been the final round of the 2020 CRSA Tour. There is an October 9 date scheduled at Afton Motorsports Park that is tentative at this time due to New York State Executive Orders from the Governor.

Mother Nature dropped a hearty two inches of rain on Thursday at the Ontario County facility. Then additional rainfall on Friday night into Saturday morning left track officials no choice but to cancel the August 29 program. It turned out being a great choice as additional rainfall came through around the time hot laps would have been firing off.

The event at Land of Legends Raceway has been rescheduled for Saturday September 26, which falls on an event that Cole and his staff have titled the “Stars of Tomorrow Spectacular”. A fitting event to include the CRSA stars and cars- many former CRSA drivers have gone on to have successful careers in 360 Sprint Cars after cutting their teeth on tour with the 305 Sprints.

Round 4 will pay a cool $1,000-to-win courtesy of Mike Emhof Motorsports of Sodus, NY. There will also be rolling top 5 cash bonuses on the line and lap sponsorships for each lap of the main event. The lap sponsors were acquired for the Afton event but with the status of that October 9 show uncertain, officials have elected to award the lap sponsorships at the Land of Legends race.

After a tough night with a DNF at Penn Can Speedway August 21, Darryl Ruggles’ advantage in the point race dwindled down to 12 markers over both Alysha Ruggles and Trevor Years. Dana Wagner is right in the thick of it as well, only 13 markers shy of the lead. This sets up for an exciting event at Land of Legends in September at the home track of Ruggles, Bay and Years. It will also be an opportunity to see if the CRSA Sprints can log 4 different winners in 4 races for the 2020 campaign as parity has been at a premium.

In 2020 there have been six different winners at Land of Legends where weekly CRSA-sanctioned competition is held. There hasn’t been a dominant car all season with Bobby Parrow, Alysha Bay, Cory Sparks, Brandyn Griffin, Darryl Ruggles and Jason Whipple all collecting commemorative LOLR checkered flags.

With the uncertainty of the October Afton date, drivers will be racing like it is Championship Night on September 26 with the real winners being the fans who are anticipated to be allowed to attend this post-season affair. Gates on that date will open at Noon with the pits being cleared at 3:00 to pay for entry. Heat in motors will take place at 5:00, followed by Hot Laps and Racing scheduled for 6:00. The event will also be available for purchase to view online by visiting www.landoflegendstv.com for just $14.95.

The CRSA 305 Sprint Tour is powered by Super Gen Products with their Champion Power Equipment located in Newark, NY. Associate sponsors for the 2020 CRSA 305 Sprints include Midstate Basement Authorities, CNY Farm Supply, the Maguire Family of Dealerships, Eagle Enterprises, LLC, Hoosier Racing Tires and is owned and operated by Mike Emhof Motorsports.

Big Shows on Tap for Clinton County Speedway

Mill Hall, PA – The Clinton County Fair Association is pleased to announce some big shows scheduled for late September and early October to close out the 2020 season. The Fair Association took over the weekly operations of the speedway and has held 10 races since opening on June 26th.

The first big race will take place on Saturday September 19th featuring the RaceSaver Sprint Cars and the Pro Stocks. The Nittany Championship for the RaceSaver Sprint Cars is triple sanctioned by the Laurel Highlands Sprint Series, PA Sprint Series, and the Allegheny Sprint Series. “We are expecting drivers from all three series and some of the best RaceSaver drivers ranked in the state and the nation,” says Race Promoter Jason McCahan. “The event will pay $1,000 to the winner of the 40 lap main event. Drivers will qualify through time trials and heat races.” Non-Qualifiers will also compete in a complete feature if more than 45 cars are in attendance.

The current national RaceSaver Sprint Car points leader, Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery has been a regular at the speedway and has one victory so far this season at the 3/8th mile oval. John Walp of Wapwallopen and Larry McVey of Bordentown, NJ are ranked second and third respectively behind Bard in the State of Pennsylvania’s point standing and have been contenders at Clinton County Speedway. Bard is also the current point leader at Clinton County with Scott Lutz of Jonestown in second, Dale Schweikart of Linden in third, Dylan Proctor of Lock Haven in fourth and Jared Zionkowski of Wyalusing rounding out the top five. Schweikart currently has two wins this season. Bard, Zionkowski, Jeffrey Weaver of Lock Haven currently have one victory each.

In addition to the Sprint Cars on September 19th, the Pro Stocks will compete in the C.W. Smith Memorial paying $1,800 to win. Smith from Williamsport competed in both ARCA and NASCAR. “We are grateful for the opportunity to work with the Smith Family to honor C.W. and his racing accomplishments,” says McCahan. The Pro Stocks will compete in a 40 lap main event and will also qualify with time trials and heat races.

“Our Pro-Stocks have been very competitive this year,” adds McCahan. Seven different drivers have visited victory lane including Robert Tressler of Lock Haven (2), Bradley Benton of Duncansville (2), AJ Stroup of Evandale (2), Kevin VanAmburg of Lock Haven, Tommy Dawson of Wapwallopen, Brandon Moser of Millerstown, and Noah Jensen of Nescopeck.

The two events will be the largest races for the Pro Stocks and RaceSaver Sprint Cars. Also, on the program will be the 270 Micro Sprints and the 4-Cylinders. Gates will open at 1PM with hot laps at 4PM and racing beginning at 4:30PM. Sunday, September 20th will be a rain date.

On Saturday, October 3rd, the Super Late Models will compete in a $5,000 to win event presented by Strouse Electric of Bellefonte. It has been several years since the speedway hosted a Super Late Model race. The last large race of this magnitude was hosted in 2017 when Andrew Yoder of Middleburg won over a field of 50 plus cars. The event will be the largest payout of the season for the speedway. Luke Hoffner of Turbotville is the all-time Super Late Model feature winner with 40 career wins.

The Pro Stocks and 270 Micro Sprints will be in competition paying $500 to win each feature. The 4 Cylinders will run under the SDRCA rules package and pay $750 to win.

Gates will open at 1PM with hot laps at 4PM and racing begins at 4:30PM. A rain date is set for Saturday, October 10th.

Strouse Electric is a family owned and operated business located in Bellefonte. They have been serving Central PA since 1981 with residential and industrial electrical services.

Boulton Earns First Triumph of the Season in Borrowed Sprint Car

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (Aug. 27, 2020) - Tucker Boulton recently accomplished a goal that looked to be sidelined only a few weeks ago. In doing so, he built confidence that he can take into the rest of the season as well as next year.

Roughly a month ago Boulton crashed his family owned 305ci sprint car and thought he was left without an opportunity to race. Things turned around after a team offered up a newer car. So much so that the 17-year-old driver put the car in Victory Lane on Aug. 15 at Riverside International Speedway.

"It's great," he said. "To go out after tearing up our car and get in a car that someone is letting us use, it was awesome to earn a victory."

The triumph instilled plenty of confidence and that kept rising when Boulton recently received his new J&J Chassis for the 2021 season.

Boulton and his family plan to have a 360 sprint car engine and use the new chassis to take the next step in the young driver's career. There is no set schedule in place, but the plan is to travel more than in past years.

"I can't wait," said Boulton, who was off last weekend. "I'm super stoked. We are going to have a brand new motor that was never run before.

"It really helps going out to Riverside on your off week to watch and the same exact car you just bought goes out there and dominates. We got to watch and see it happen last Saturday, and it brings a lot of confidence and excitement for next year."

For now, Boulton is focused on the next race on his schedule, which is Saturday's Jim Huffman Memorial at Riverside International Speedway.

"I can't wait," he said. "We had a whole extra week to work on the car and make sure everything is right on it. We are going to go out as confident as we did last time and go get it done."

QUICK RESULTS

Aug. 15 - Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. - Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 1 (2).

SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT - Henderson Recovery

"Henderson Recovery is like family to us and wanted to see me get in something that was safe and fast so they helped us get a new chassis," Boulton said. "We appreciate their support of our team."

Boulton would like to thank NAPA in Millington, Tenn., DHR Suspension, Simpson Race Products and Jacqueline Savoy Photography for their continued support.

 

 

Brian Brown Secures Second Straight Knoxville Title With World of Outlaws Doubleheader on Tap

Inside Line Promotions - GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (Aug. 27, 2020) - Brian Brown wrapped up his fifth career track championship and fourth in the 410ci sprint car division at Knoxville Raceway this week.

The half-mile oval in Knoxville, Iowa, recently announced the cancellation of the remainder of the 2020 season, officially crowning Brown with his second straight track title.

"It's always good to be a champion no matter what you do in life," he said. "We hadn't planned on running for a championship. With everything that happened with COVID-19 and the make-up races, it forced our hand a little to run as many as we could there. It just worked out for us. We had a solid year. We won some races there and felt like we were in contention every time.

"We have to get better when the money is on the line I feel like. Even though we run around there pretty good there's a lot more left that we can be better in different situations. We'll work hard to try to find some things and then put them to use next year when we get to Knoxville."

UP NEXT - Saturday at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo., and Sunday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series

"It's been four or five years since the last time I was at U.S. 36 Raceway," Brown said. "It's not historically been my best track. We're going in there with a good attitude that someone is going to win $10,000 and someone will finish second, third, fourth. Why not us?

"I-80 is a place we've had a lot of success with the 360 over the years. We've won a lot of races there. I think the last time the Outlaws were there we finished in the top five. The main thing is we've had some issues getting qualified (this season). That has been the Achilles Heel, getting buried behind the eight ball. We're trying to unload something that is at the top of the board or at least close to the top of the board in qualifying."

SEASON STATS -

40 races, 5 wins, 13 top fives, 22 top 10s, 28 top 15s, 31 top 20s

Bacon is Smackdown Ready after Sweeping Candyman Classic Double Features

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (August 27, 2020) – Brady Bacon steps back into the familiar Hoffman Racing Fatheadz Eyewear No. 69 Sprint Car for three nights of racing action this weekend as the USAC National Sprint Car series resumes with the “Kokomo Sprint Car Smackdown”.

The three-day blockbuster events gets under way with full preliminary programs on both Thursday and Friday that set the stage for Saturday’s “Smackdown” finale.

“This is one we always look forward to,” Bacon says. “We have always run well at it, it seems like a lot of thirds and fourths and just a lot of top fives. Now it’s time to go and get a win.”

Bacon goes into the three-day set after sweeping last Friday night’s “Candyman Classic” double features at Gas City I-69 Speedway aboard the Longworth No 410 Sprint Car.

After racing from fourth to win his heat race, “The Macho Man” needed just three laps to race into the lead from the fourth starting position in the first “A” Main and then rallied from tenth to take command 13 laps into the second “A” Main en route to checking out on the field to complete the sweep of feature events.

With a posted winner’s share of $2,020 for each feature along with bonuses, Bacon cashed in $4,940 for the night’s work.

Bacon rounded out last weekend by timing in fourth quickest aboard the Klatt Enterprises No. 6 USAC Silver Crown entry at Sunday’s “Hoosier Hundred” atop the Indianapolis State Fairgrounds mile oval only to get collected in an early-race melee that brought an early end to the day.

This weekend’s “Smackdown” action marks the first USAC competition since Indiana Sprintweek wrapped up on August 2.

Bacon enters the weekend sitting fourth in points, less than 100 markers out of the lead. It’s a position he looks to improve upon.

Brady Bacon Racing is bolstered by the support of partners including Hoffman Auto Racing, Fatheadz Eyewear, Champion Oil, Gene Franckowiak, Drivewfx.com, Elliott’s Custom Trailers, ATC Trailers, Tel-Star Technologies, Dragonfly Aviation, Lykins Oil, Triple X Race Co., Hoosier Tire, XYZ Machine, Heath Clips Lawn Care, FK Indy, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Rod Ends, Specialty Rigging, Keizer Wheels, Purple Heart Foundation, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Smiley’s Racing Products, R&R Enterprises, DMI, ProGlide Coatings, Chalk Stixx, Wilwood Engineering, Lajoie Seats, Smith Precision Products, Allstar Performance, Simpson Racing Products, MyRacePass, Schroth Racing, Saldana Racing Products, KSE Racing Products, King Racing Products and Schoenfeld Headers.

Terry McCarl and Destiny Motorsports Conclude Their Partnership with the Season Ending at Knoxville Raceway

PETERSEN MEDIA: With Knoxville Raceway making the decision to end their 2020 season this week, it brings the conclusion of the partnership between TMAC Motorsports and Destiny Motorsports.

"We have had a lot of fun with Rick, Barb, and Destiny Rogers over the years,” Terry McCarl said. “I am glad that they have shared this success with us over the past few years and I wish them nothing but success in the future."

Destiny Motorsports/Mondak Portables came on board with TMAC in 2015 as an associate sponsor, and quickly found success together.

They had many wins, and a lot of success, and the relationship grew into a primary sponsor for the 2019 and the 2020 season. With Knoxville making the decision to end the season this week, it has brought the conclusion of the relationship that was set through the end of Knoxville Raceway’s 2020 campaign.

"We had a lot of success with Destiny Motorsports dating back to 2015,” McCarl added. “We won nearly 40 feature events, including 2 World of Outlaw wins, 2 360 Nationals wins, 3 Ronald Laney "King of the 360's wins, a Knoxville Nationals prelim win, and the Jessie Hocket 'Mr. Sprint Week’ title, to name a few.”

While the partnership ends with the conclusion of Knoxville’s season, it was another strong season for the McCarl family as Carson McCarl won his second consecutive 360 Track Championship, Austin McCarl finished second in 410ci points piloting the family owned No. 17a machine, and TMAC ended the year third in 410ci points.

"This weekend is up in the air for TMAC Motorsports, as we prepare to bring back the #24,” McCarl noted. “Unfortunately, the storm that hit Knoxville on August 10th caught my crew off guard and 3 of our top wings were destroyed. We will definitely be ready for the World of Outlaw event at the Huset’s Speedway in, Brandon SD next weekend, Sept. 5th and 6th."

With roughly 20-races still on the schedule this season, McCarl is still actively seeking marketing partners to join him as he return to the TMAC Motorsports No. 24 machine. Interested parties are encouraged to reach out to him via email at TLAM@aol.com.

MERCH ALERT- New Terry McCarl “Made America Race Again” shirts are now available for purchase! Check out his website, or visit his merchandise trailer when it is available.

Terry McCarl would like to thank TheSnowPlow.com, STC, JLT Ent., Real-Geese, T.H. Custom Manufacturing, Justice Brothers, HRP, Country Builders Construction, Real-Geese, Octane Ink, CM Rock, Bosma Poultry, Inc., Rob-See-Co., Chris Spaulding Attorney at Law, Kilani Fenders, Burnett’s Rock and Landscaping, KC Breweries, Phil & Vivian, Bob & Beulah, Mastell Brothers, Central Iowa Sheds, Aurora Rod Ends, Winters Performance, Crow Safety, All Pro, Engler, All Star Performance, KSE Racing Products, Pro Shocks, Wilwood, Weld Wheels, Bell Helmets, Hinchman Indy, Petersen Media, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Hoosier Tires North, AL Drivelines, Saldana Tanks, Smith Titanium, and Scribner Engineering for their continued support.

2020 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 37, Wins-1, Top 5’s-9, Top 10’s-13.

ON TAP: TMAC and the TMAC Motorsports No. 24 machine are TBD for racing this weekend, but will for sure be in action September 5th and 6th at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, SD.

 

 

FIVE PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY REGULARS IN KOKOMO SMACKDOWN

(Perris, CA, August 26, 2020) Race starved Perris Auto Speedway fans will have reasons to cheer when the USAC National Sprint Car Series visits Indiana’s Kokomo Speedway for the “9th Annual Smackdown” this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, August 27th through the 29th. To be exact, the five reasons are PAS USAC/CRA regulars Damion Gardner, Austin Williams, Jake Swanson, Charles Davis, and Eddie Tafoya Jr. who will all be in action in the Hoosier state’s biggest traditional sprint car event.

Still closed due to state and county regulations due to the COVID crisis, So Cal fans have yet to see a USAC/CRA Series race at The PAS this season. The track and series officials still have hopes that there will be some racing in So Cal before winter sets in. Until that time, the next best thing will be to see their heroes lock horns with the top stars in the Midwest this week. All three of the races will be available to fans via pay per view on the Flo Racing website.

For Gardner, who has won the USAC/CRA title the last seven seasons in a row, racing at Kokomo is a return to the Midwest where he campaigned from 2006 through 2012. Regular fans watching may have a hard time recognizing the driver known as “The Demon” as he will not be in the familiar Alexander silver #4. Instead, he will be wheeling the Baldwin Racing #5. A certain National Sprint Car Hall of Famer when his career is over, Gardner has eight USAC/CRA titles (in addition to the last seven in a row, he also won in 2005 before heading to the Midwest) and three wins in the prestigious Budweiser Oval Nationals. In addition, on the all-time CRA, SCRA, and USAC/CRA victory list dating back to 1946, the slender driver is ranked fourth with 96-wins. With fuel still left in his tank, he is only nine wins behind all-time leader Dean Thompson’s total of 105.

The “Big Game Hunter,” Austin Williams, who now makes his home in Corona, California, will be making a rare assault on the Midwest in the famous Moose Racing #92. The son of National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Rip Williams began racing in USAC in 2009 when he claimed the CRA Rookie of the Year award. After spending his entire career driving for Jack and Sharon Jory, Williams, 29, moved into the Tom and Lauri Sertich Moose car when Jory decided to step away from racing at the end of 2018. In his first year in the Moose car, he scored main event wins at Calistoga and The PAS. He also placed second in the USAC/CRA championship standings, only 71-points behind champion Gardner.

Veteran Jake Swanson and his race car driving wife Jessica spent last week moving from Anaheim, California to Indiana to pursue their racing careers. Last season, the Cal State Northridge marketing graduate finished fourth in the USAC/CRA Standings driving for Arizona’s Justin Grau. The 2012 USAC/CRA Rookie of the Year and 2017 USAC West Coast Sprint Car Series champion has most recently tackled the Silver Crown Series. In his initial race at Pennsylvania’s Sellinsgrove Speedway, he surprised everyone when he qualified fourth and ran much of the race in the top six. Late in the race, while in fourth, a flat tire sent him to the pits for a new hunk of rubber and a 17th place finish. Last Sunday in his first appearance at the Hoosier Hundred at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, he started eighth and immediately began to move forward. As laps wound down, he was closing on the two leaders when his car started running out of fuel and began to sputter. He gently nursed it home for a hard-earned sixth place-finish.

With no racing in the Copper State in 2019, longtime Buckeye, Arizona racing star “Chargin’” Charles Davis Jr. has gotten his racing fix in Indiana. A machinist by trade, the veteran racer first made his mark in sprint car racing when he won the 1993 California Racing Association (CRA) Rookie of the Year award. Since that time the now 52-year-old has racked up five Arizona Sprint Car titles between the ASCA (Arizona Sprint Car Association), ASCS Canyon Region Non-Wing (American Sprint Car Series) and USAC Southwest Series. After four races in the 2019 USAC Southwest Series, Davis is second in points, only four-markers out of the lead. In addition, he is seventh in points after two races in the USAC/CRA Series.

Like the four previously mentioned drivers, Chino Hills, California racer Eddie Tafoya Jr. has had to look east for his dose of racing in 2020. Last month he journeyed to Indiana and contested all rounds of Indiana Sprint Week. In his first time on all the tracks, the 23-year-old gave a very favorable account of himself. Highlights of that journey were a transfer from his heat race into the main event at the Lawrenceburg Speedway and qualifying sixth fastest in his group at the Terre Haute Action Track. Tafoya’s first full year in sprint cars was in 2018 and he won the Perris Auto Speedway Young Guns championship. Last year, he was crowned Rookie of the Year in both the USAC/CRA and USAC Southwest Series.

Must See Racing Sprint Car Series

HOLLY, Mich. (Aug. 26, 2020) - The Must See Racing Sprint Car Series has announced that American Racer has extended its deal as the official and exclusive tire of Must See Racing for an additional three years.

The extension covers the 2021 through 2023 racing seasons.

“From the day back in March 2011 that MSR selected American Racer, their management team, engineers and our series distributor, Wayne Bishop of Michigan American Racer LLC has delivered on every commitment and promise enabling MSR to not only meet, but exceed, our three original objectives of safety, presenting a level and competitive playing field for our competitors, and significantly reducing tire costs for our teams,” Must See Racing President Jim Hanks said. “Tires are one of the most important components in racing, creating a difficult and complex dynamic for competitors and officials alike. As the overall costs of racing challenges race teams, the American Racer tire has leveled the playing field between widespread tire budgets, while significantly reducing all competitors' tire expenses.

“I really appreciate and respect American Racer’s continued and ongoing commitment to product quality and competitive pricing," Hanks continued. "Performance has been the foundation of our series and our outstanding relationship. The quality of our first-class race teams and their record-setting performances competing on the American Racer tire objectively speaks for itself.”

“It is with great pleasure we continue and extend our long-standing relationship with Must See Racing, showcasing our brand and American Racer tires with the World’s Fastest Short Track Cars,” added Specialty Tires of America Director of Racing Scott Junod.

The Must See Racing Sprint Car Series season continues Sept. 12 at Pennsylvania's Jennerstown Speedway.

Nienhiser Second Against Sprint Invaders with Midland Performance No. 50 Car

PETERSEN MEDIA: Paul Nienhiser and the Midland Performance team continue to put together strong runs with the Sprint Invaders as Nienhiser would rebound from an opening lap issues on Friday night at Lee County to run sixth, before running second at Saturday night at 34 Raceway.

“I always have a blast running the Midland Performance car, and we are always fast,” Nienhiser said. “We sure do have a ton of second place finishes together, and I really wish I could turn these into wins for the team.”

Friday night kicked off to double header weekend with the Sprint Invaders for Nienhiser as he checked into Lee County Speedway and finished second in his heat race.

Not qualifying for the Dash, the Chapin, IL driver would line up eighth in the feature event and got a great jump when the green flag was displayed. Nienhiser’s great jump would be all for not, as chaos in front of him would shoot him spinning into the infield and it would bring out the yellow.

Luckily only suffering light damage, Nienhiser would tag the rear of the field for the restart and showcased a very strong car that was capable of working the bottom groove, as well as ripping the high side of the speedway.

Working his way through the field, Nienhiser would work into the sixth spot when a late race yellow bunched the field up. Looking for a way into the Top-5, Nienhiser would try to make the bottom work, but late in the race the top was just too good, and he would cap the night with a sixth-place finish.

Checking in at 34 Raceway in Burlington, IA on Saturday night, Nienhiser would have a similar draw for his heat that again saw him finish second after starting third.

With more cars on this night, more cars were eligible for the Dash and Nienhiser would make the cut on this night. Riding the bike when the Dash came to life, Nienhiser would fall back to eighth where he would finish, putting him on the outside of the fourth row for the second consecutive night.

With Scott Bonar putting his super tune on the Midland Performance No. 50 machine prior to the feature, Nienhiser would advance up to third within the first two laps of the feature event.

Battling with the likes of Lynton Jeffrey for the second position, Nienhiser would admittedly be too nice in traffic and he kept him back in the third spot.

Once in second, the hooked-up surface would make it tough to reel in the race leader who had broken away from Nienhiser during his battle for the second spot.

Holding on to the second spot in the closing laps, Nienhiser capped his weekend off with a second-place finish.

“Big thanks to Scott and his team for the opportunity,” Nienhiser said. “I hate that we couldn’t get a win, but two really good nights for us.”

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil, Mason Sound, Innovative Design, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Wessler Bros. Agency, Bob Hawks Auto Body, Littleton Storm & Timber, Fierce Herbicide, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Kaeding Performance, Smith Titanium Products, Vortex Wings, Signature Signs and Design, and Team Simpson for their continued support.

2020 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-24, Wins-2, Top 5’s-6, Top 10’s-11

ON TAP: Paul Nienhiser is now slated for a very busy weekend ahead. Friday night he will be in action at Tri City Speedway in Granite City, IL as he will compete with MOWA, and will also non-wing it with WAR both in his family owned entry. Saturday night he will head to Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, MO where he will battle with the POWRi West Midgets in a Dave Mac Motorsports entry, and will return to WAR action in his family car.

Williamson Wins and Charges to Runner-Up Result During Stellar Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - MOBERLY, Mo. (Aug. 26, 2020) - Garet Williamson has built plenty of confidence and he certainly has showcased speed throughout his rookie season in a sprint car.

Williamson excelled in front of the hometown crowd Saturday night at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., where he collected his third win of the season. The Bryant Paver Motorsports driver followed it up the next night with a second-place finish in an ASCS Warrior Region event at Randolph County Raceway.

"We had a super-good weekend," he said. "It's huge knowing that we are fast and with the week off we haven't lost much.

"It's a huge confidence booster. It's nice to go pick up a win and follow it up with another strong run. Right now, confidence is key and we have some. So I think it's going to help a lot heading into the end of the year."

It also helps getting off to a good start. Williamson did that at Lake Ozark Speedway by charging from seventh to second place in his heat race. That performance put the 20-year-old driver on the pole in the feature. Williamson went unchallenged and dominated the event.

"I love that place," he said. "We have a lot of hometown fans who always come there, so it's nice to go there and get a win in front of them. We also have a big show there in a couple of weeks and it's nice to go there with a lot of confidence and knowing that you have a lot of speed there."

As good as Williamson was on Saturday, his trip to Randolph County Raceway might have been more impressive.

Williamson was slated to start up front in the feature after maneuvering from fifth to win a heat race, but he decided to take the $1,000 challenge of trying to win from the rear. The Missouri driver started 10th and surged into second, falling just short of the victory.

"We took that challenge and we ran second," he said. "It's nice to show we have speed and I think we had the car to win. It took rubber so it was hard to get there, but we had speed."

With the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour not slated to race until Sept. 12, Williamson will have another off weekend coming up. His next event will be the two-day Lake Ozark Speedway 360 Nationals on Sept. 5-6.

"Obviously, we would love to race, but there is nowhere to really go," he said. "I think our next race will be a big two-day show at the Lake. So I think after the week we came off, I think we will have speed and it won't affect us much.

"I'm super excited to get back to the Lake for that race. The next race is the first time I ran in a sprint car last year so add that to it being my home track and having a win there, it's huge for us."

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 22 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Heat race: 2 (7); Feature: 1 (1).

Aug. 23 - Randolph County Raceway in Moberly, Mo. - Heat race: 1 (5); Feature: 2 (10).

Dover Ready to Put Frustrating Month of August Behind Him

Inside Line Promotions - ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa (Aug. 26, 2020) - Jack Dover is excited for the month of August to end.

The summer started off hot with 12 top 10s in 13 races - featuring a trio of victories and 10 top fives - in June and July. Unfortunately, August has been a month of frustration that was capped by mechanical woes last Friday during a Midwest Power Series event at Rapid Speedway.

"We almost missed hot laps because I was switching the gas pedal, but we got out there and were fifth or sixth quickest," he said. "I didn't think my car felt that great and we made some adjustments for the heat race. One of the adjustments wasn't right on a shock, but it seemed to work really good. We picked off three cars right away and then got second place on the last lap."

Dover's charge from sixth to second place earned a spot into the feature redraw. He then received the No. 1 during the random redraw to land the pole position for the A Main.

"We got the lead right away and then broke a rocker on the second lap," he said. "Fortunately it wasn't anything catastrophic."

Dover's DNF was his fourth in six races in August. It also parked him for the following night's action at Park Jefferson International Speedway in North Sioux City, S.D.

Dover is hopeful his engine will be repaired this week so he can compete this weekend. Stay tuned to his Facebook page for the latest news.

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 21 - Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa - Heat race: 2 (6); Feature: 21 (1).

21 races, 6 wins, 14 top fives, 16 top 10s, 17 top 15s, 17 top 20s

Henderson and Sandvig Racing Set to Join World of Outlaws at I-80 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - SPENCER, Iowa (Aug. 26, 2020) - Justin Henderson is scheduled to pilot the Mike Sandvig Racing No. 7 this Sunday during the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series show at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb.

This will be Henderson's first race behind the wheel of the Sandvig car since engine woes plagued the team during 'The One and Only' at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, a couple of weeks ago, causing them to scratch for the entire weekend after one night of competition. With a refreshed engine in the car and redemption on his mind, Henderson is hoping for a successful night in Nebraska.

"We've got a new Rider in the car and we're ready to get back into things," he said. "The last time I was at I-80 I was in Mike's 360 car and we were really fast so I think we should be in good shape to roll right off the trailer fast."

Henderson is coming off a recent stretch of success in his own 360ci sprint car that saw him claim a weekend sweep with the Midwest Power Series at Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa, last Friday and at Park Jefferson International Speedway in North Sioux City, S.D., on Saturday. The victories were worth a combined $4,000, plus a $2,000 bonus supplied by his sponsor GRP Motorsports for winning both events.

Henderson noted that his personal team is streamlined to that of the Sandvig team, so he believes that his individual success will lead to bigger and better things as they begin a busy stretch that will likely involve more traveling than originally planned.

With their home track of Knoxville Raceway recently cancelling the remainder of the 2020 racing season due to COVID-19, Henderson and Sandvig have had to scramble to figure out where and when they will be racing.

"We've learned a lot with these race cars and Mike's car seems to be responding to the changes we're making in my car," he said. "We're going to jump around a little bit going forward, but I really don't know what's going to happen going forward. However, the races we have planned are pretty good ones so there's a lot to look forward to."

While it has thrown a wrench into their plans, Henderson believes seeing different places and facing tougher competition will allow them to continue to grow as a team in preparation for the 2021 season.

"We've talked about traveling a bit and I think we've got a car capable of contending anywhere in the country," he said. "You always want to be faster and you always want to move forward as a team so this will allow us to keep heading there. I'm very optimistic about the rest of the year and going forward."

The reasoning behind the postponement has to do with the recent outbreak of COVID-19 cases from Knoxville and the fact several California natives were in attendance. “We feel it’s in the best interest of everyone that we move this weekend’s event to Saturday October 3rd,” commented track Promoter Scott Russell. “A lot of individuals from California were in Knoxville and we believe this weekend is cutting it too close to the recommended 14-day quarantine period.”

All four divisions originally scheduled to compete on Big Trophy Night will be part of the action on October 3rd. The track will also be holding an event on September 19th.

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.

Setters Produces Top-10 Performance at Skagit Speedway With Rocky Mountain Season Finale Upcoming

Inside Line Promotions - ALGER, Wash. (Aug. 25, 2020) - James Setters posted his eighth top 10 of the season in only 10 starts last Thursday at Skagit Speedway.

Setters improved throughout his season debut at the oval, ending the night with a top-10 outing to give him a top-10 finish at all four tracks he's competed at this year.

"We were definitely happy because we were battling with people who could win," he said. "We felt like we have speed and could have got a top five if we qualified better."

Setters began the night by qualifying 16th quickest. It was the first time he has participated in time trials this season. He then placed fourth in a heat race to lock into the 14th starting position for the A Main.

"Qualifying didn't go as planned," he said. "I blew the cushion and that didn't set me up for a good lap. In the heat I blew the first corner and slid up, but we had some good battles.

"In the main we were battling the rain. It was sprinkling when we started. We ran until a yellow happened. Then the track got soaked. They had to wait for the rain to stop, bring the track back in and finish out the race.

"I feel like it went pretty good. We had some speed and we're happy we didn't wreck there. The past two races we went there we wrecked so we're happy to pull the car in in one piece."

Setters advanced a handful of positions to place 10th.

Next up is the Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series season finale this Friday at Electric City Speedway in Great Falls, Mont. Setters has won each of the five series races this season and he only needs to start the A Main to secure his second straight series championship.

"I need to be cautious in the heat race to make sure I keep the car running and don't wreck it," he said. "Hopefully I get a good draw for the heat. If I don't I have to be careful and try to make it into the feature redraw. Then in the main we hope to win and keep the streak alive."

Amantea Scores Top 10 in Micro Sprint and 11th-Place Run in Sprint Car

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Aug. 25, 2020) - Joey Amantea continued his growth as a sprint car driver when he picked up an 11 th-place finish behind the wheel of a 360ci sprint car last Saturday at Port Royal Speedway during the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars event.

Amantea also continued a successful season in the wingless micro sprint car ranks as he recorded a ninth-place finish Friday night at Spirit Auto Center Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J., to give him 29 top-10 outings on the season.

"I really like doing the wingless 360 stuff and I feel like it really suits my driving style," he said. "I would have liked to have finished inside the top 10, but ultimately this was a big week for me in terms of my future in racing and my growth."

Amantea began the weekend on Friday at Spirit Auto Center Speedway by finishing sixth in a heat race. He then placed second in a B Main to secure the 24th starting spot in the A Main. Amantea followed that up by advancing 15 positions in the feature to garner a ninth-place result.

"We tried something new with the setup and it worked really well in practice, but we were way off come the heat race," he said. "We changed things up a bit and found something that really worked. It's unfortunate that we kind of had to throw a race away to find something out, but it'll help us long term."

Amantea then headed to Port Royal Speedway on Saturday to compete for the first time with the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars. He advanced three positions in a heat race to finish fourth and secure the 10 th starting position in the feature.

Slick track conditions made it tough to pass in the A Main, but Amantea persevered to advance as high as seventh before slipping to 11th at the completion of the 25-lap event.

"It was pretty cool out there as there were a couple times when I was splitting cars and going three-wide in the turns trying to make up ground," he said. "Just to be out there racing on a track like Port Royal is a special feeling and I can't wait to do more wingless 360 racing."

Next up for Amantea will be a three-race weekend featuring two nights of winged 360 sprint car competition and one night of wingless micro sprint action. He'll be behind the wheel of the Burke Family No. 54 on Friday at Penn-Can Speedway in Susquehanna, Pa., with the Patriot Sprint Tour and Saturday at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pa., with the Capital Renegade URC 360 Sprints Cars for the 358/360 Challenge. On Sunday Amantea will return to Spirit Auto Center Speedway in his family owned micro sprint.

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 21 - Spirit Auto Center Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J. - Heat race: 6 (7); B Main: 2 (2); Feature: 9 (24).

Aug. 22 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Heat race: 4 (7); Feature: 11 (10).

Kaleb Johnson Posts Top-10 Finish at Park Jefferson International Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - NORTH SIOUX CITY, S.D. (Aug. 25, 2020) - A top-10 run highlighted a challenging weekend of competition with the Midwest Power Series for Kaleb Johnson.

Park Jefferson International Speedway presented a different track surface on Saturday night than Johnson has been accustomed to at the facility.

"Saturday was probably the only time I've raced at Park Jefferson where the track was really heavy," he said. "After our heat we changed a bunch of stuff for the feature because we had anticipated the track being a lot slicker than it was."

Johnson took the green flag for the A Main from the 13th starting position after starting and finishing fifth in his heat race.

"The changes we made to the car worked pretty well and we moved forward," he said. "I got up to about sixth or seventh at one point, but the car got super tight in turns three and four and I went off the track, losing a couple of spots. I got back to sixth and was trying to pass the guy for fifth with two laps to go when the same thing happened. I lost two spots again and finished eighth. We had pretty good speed. It was just one of those racing deals."

Johnson battled a challenging track of a different type the previous night at Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa.

"The track was already slick in the heat race," he said. "I started on the outside in fourth. The bottom was the place to be. I spun my tires on the start and lost a spot before dropping to the bottom where it was pretty much follow the leader the rest of the race."

Johnson's heat race finish placed him 18th on the starting grid for the A Main.

"The track took rubber after about five laps and I had trouble finding it right away," he said. "After that it was pretty tough to pass with the rubber and I finished 15th."

With Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, recently cancelling the remainder of its season, Johnson will be idle from racing this weekend before competing in a doubleheader with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series in conjunction with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., Sept. 5-6.

"I'm excited to be able to race at Huset's," he said. "It's nice to finally race at the track that's closest to home. I haven't had a lot of experience racing on short, tight tracks like that. I raced there once in a 305 sprint car and that didn't go so well. It's a technical track and can eat you up in a hurry. I'm sure there will be another big crowd there and it's always fun to race in front of lots of people. I'm looking forward to it."

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 21 - Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa - Heat race: 5 (4); Feature: 15 (18).

Aug. 22 - Park Jefferson International Speedway in North Sioux City, S.D. - Heat race: 5 (5); Feature: 8 (13).

West Jr. Ascends to Third in ASCS Mid-South Region Championship Standings

Inside Line Promotions - MONETT, Mo. (Aug. 25, 2020) - Jeffrey West Jr. has climbed to third in the ASCS Mid-South Region championship standings during his first season behind the wheel of a sprint car.

"I wouldn't have thought that I'd be in this position at the beginning of the year," he said. "It's exceeding our expectations. This year we're still focusing on learning and getting things figured out."

A race last Saturday provided the most recent opportunity to grow as West Jr. invaded Monett Motor Speedway for the first time.

"We definitely struggled a good bit," he said. "It was a new track and I had never been on a 3/8 mile before. As far as my driving went I felt like I adapted to the track fairly quickly. I was pretty comfortable on it. The main thing was setup-wise and knowing what to do on a big track like that when it slicks off."

West Jr. placed seventh in a heat race, which lined him up on the outside of the 10th row for the A Main.

"For the first five or 10 laps the car was really hooked up," he said. "I got up to ninth place at one point on the fourth or fifth lap. Then I got shuffled back. The track slicked off and the car handling changed. We ran around 15th for the last half of the race."

West Jr. finished 15th, which was his fourth top 15 of the season.

"The main thing is we have a better idea of where to start on a 3/8-mile track," he said. "We had literally never experienced that before. Something we thought would work ended up not working. We weren't fast in the feature, but we were way better than we were in hot laps and the heat race. There were some positives to take away from it."

The next ASCS Mid-South Region race is this Saturday at I-30 Speedway. West Jr. earned his best result at the track with a 14th-place outing during his most recent visit.

Wilson Venturing to Central Pennsylvania for Four All Star Races This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - PLYMOUTH, Ind. (Aug. 25, 2020) - A four-race swing through Central Pennsylvania is on tap for Greg Wilson and his new Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics, DNC Hydraulics and Gear Off Road sponsored team this weekend.

The Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions action runs Thursday at Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville; Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg; Saturday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown; and Sunday at Bedford Speedway in Bedford.

"We had speed throughout the two nights last weekend and I think we were headed in the right direction and then we wrecked our race car," Wilson said. "We need to just go and have a decent weekend where we get through it okay so we have the ability to keep building and change things to improve instead of having to rebuild a car."

Wilson, who ranks sixth in the All Star championship standings, raced with the series twice last weekend. It began on Friday at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis., where he qualified 18th quickest, advanced a position to place fifth in a heat race and rallied from 18th to 11th in the A Main.

"I felt like we were better than the result we had, but we have a tendency to have our car too tight so I had made up my mind to leave the car freed up," he said. "The problem is we've been too free and we have to figure that part out so we can get qualified better. We left the setup alone all night. We should have done what we normally do and we would have been fine."

Despite the setup being a bit off, Wilson was tied for the second-most positions gained in the race.

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Plymouth Speedway, where he timed in 19th quickest overall and gained a spot to place sixth in a heat race. That locked Wilson into the A Main, which was unfortunately short-lived.

Wilson, who started 17th, was battling for a top 10 when he was caught up in a race-ending crash approximately a quarter of the way through the feature. The incident broke his front end, smashed the tail tank and damaged the rear of the car, and he was unable to finish the race.

"By feature-time I felt like we had a really good race car, but we have no result or confidence booster to tell us we had a good race car," he said. "We were coming through there pretty good. There were three guys and I turned to drive under a guy. He got sideways and I t-boned him. Then I got hit from behind. It was just quarter-mile racing and that stuff happens."

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 21 - Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis. - Qualifying: 18; Heat race: 5 (6); Feature: 11 (18).

Aug. 22 - Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Ind. - Qualifying: 19; Heat race: 6 (7); Feature: DNF (17).

Sides Takes Two Top 15s During World of Outlaws Doubleheader in North Dakota

Inside Line Promotions - WEST FARGO, N.D. (Aug. 25, 2020) - Jason Sides garnered a pair of top-15 runs last weekend in North Dakota.

Sides began both nights with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on a positive note, qualifying sixth quickest on Friday at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks during the Second Leg of the Northern Tour and eighth quickest on Saturday at Red River Valley Speedway during the Red River Rumble.

A runner-up result in a heat race on Friday earned a spot into the dash. Sides placed fifth in the dash to line up on the inside of the third row for the main event.

"It started off good," he said. "We made some changes at Grand Forks for the dash. Any time you get back on the track you want to make a change. We went the wrong way so we changed more things to get it better for the feature. I was too tight going into the corners on the starts. Once we got going I'd be fine, but on the restarts I'd lose everything."

Sides ended 13th and ventured to Red River Valley Speedway on Saturday. His eighth-place qualifying effort was followed by a fourth-place finish in a heat race. That started him 11th in the A Main.

"It started out pretty decent," he said. "After they worked the track it was pretty equal, the top and bottom. Then it worked off the bottom and the top got going toward the end. I passed a few cars and then the top really got going. I just tried to run the bottom too long and lost a few spots."

Sides ended 14th for his team's 18th top 15 of the season.

Next on the radar is a trip south for World of Outlaws shows on Saturday at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo., and Sunday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. Sides hasn't competed at both tracks since 2016 when he charged from 24th to 14th to be the Hard Charger Award winner at U.S. 36 Raceway and when he finished 10th at I-80 Speedway.

"We haven't been there in a while," he said. "It seems like every time we go to U.S. 36 it's wet and heavy. If it could get slick it'd be better for everyone. I-80 has always been fun to me. It usually gets more slick so that helps."

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 22 - River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D. - Qualifying: 6; Heat race: 2 (2); Dash: 5 (4); Feature: 13 (5).

Aug. 23 - Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo, N.D. - Qualifying: 8; Heat race: 4 (3); Feature: 14 (11).

Daniel Maintains Lead in World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year Battle After Solid Debut in North Dakota

Inside Line Promotions - WEST FARGO, N.D. (Aug. 25, 2020) - Mason Daniel holds a 16-point advantage in the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series Rookie of the Year chase with 18 scheduled races remaining this season.

Daniel is coming off two top-20 runs during his first-ever trip to North Dakota last weekend with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt.' He placed 16 th on Friday at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks during the Second Leg of the Northern Tour and 17th on Saturday at Red River Valley Speedway during the Red River Rumble.

"I really enjoyed both of the tracks," he said. "They are very different from each other. One is a quarter-mile bullring and the other one races like a 3/8 mile. I think we came out with more confidence and I'm excited to get back to both tracks whenever we can."

Daniel qualified 16th quickest and placed sixth in a heat race before he capped Friday's race at River Cities Speedway with a 16 th-place outing in the A Main.

He improved his qualifying and heat race results the ensuing night at Red River Valley Speedway, where he timed in 12th quickest and ended fifth in a heat race. Daniel battled for a top 15 throughout the feature before closing with a 17th-place showing.

"This was our first real weekend where we qualified well both nights," he said. "I think that's important that we have a good qualifying result. We have speed earlier in the night and need to carry that throughout the rest of the night. My guys do a great job. It just takes laps and experience on my end.

"The talent level is so good right now across the field. It's just really hard to make big gains. It comes down to setting yourself up for success early in the night and then capitalizing in the feature."

Daniel plans on racing this Saturday at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo., and Sunday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., with the World of Outlaws. He has earned podium finishes at both tracks during 360ci winged sprint car competition.

"It's going to be way different in the 410 versus the 360," he said. "I'm not really sure what to expect with it being so much faster. Hopefully we can adapt quickly and lay down a great qualifying lap each night."

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 22 - River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D. - Qualifying: 16; Heat race: 6 (6); Feature: 16 (16).

Bogucki Tackling World of Outlaws Races at U.S. 36 Raceway, I-80 Speedway and Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (Aug. 25, 2020) - Scott Bogucki is joining the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series for a pair of doubleheaders during the new two weeks.

The SawBlade.com sponsored sprint car driver has a couple more weeks off from Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour action, giving him an opportunity to race with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt.'

It begins this Saturday at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo., and Sunday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. Bogucki finished fifth at U.S. 36 Raceway last year and he nearly captured a top 10 at I-80 Speedway during his lone visit three years ago.

"We had good speed there and I have a good handle with U.S. 36," he said. "We're with the Outlaws though so it'll be difficult.

"It's been a couple of years since I've been to I-80 Speedway. I think we won the B Main and ran into the top 10 before we were wrecked in 2017."

Bogucki will compete the following weekend at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., during a $20,000-to-win event. It will be his debut at that high-banked oval.

"I'm excited," he said. "There will be a lot of good cars there. More than anything it's just seat time. The more racing you can do the better driver you will be. Plus, I always enjoy climbing in a 410. That's what I raced back home."

ASCS National Tour competition resumes Sept. 12 at I-80 Speedway. There are only 10 national shows remaining this season and Bogucki ranks sixth in the championship standings - only five points out of fifth and 110 points out of third.

The Killer Instinct Crossbows sponsored Big Game Motorsports driver placed eighth on Friday at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks during the Second Leg of the Northern Tour and fourth on Saturday at Red River Valley Speedway during the Red River Rumble.

Madsen qualified eighth quickest and finished fourth in a heat race to lock into the main event on Friday at River Cities Speedway, where he lined up on the inside of the sixth row.

"It seemed like we passed a bunch of cars," he said. "We were really good and felt like we could have finished up the order a little more. We moved up and did 40 laps around the top. It was tight racing the whole way. That's part of that track. It's always action packed with something going on."

Madsen's eighth-place result was his 24th top 10 of the season and 12th with the World of Outlaws.

The team ventured to Red River Valley Speedway on Saturday. Madsen timed in 13th quickest in qualifying before he picked up a position in a heat race to finish fourth. That gave him the 10th starting position for the A Main.

"We committed to the top pretty early, which worked out," he said. "We got to third and I felt like I was quicker than the two cars ahead. I tried to switch to the bottom a couple of times and it cost me a spot. It was one of those deals where I think if I was more patient and committed to the top we could have possibly got to second. It was a decision you make at the time. As good as everyone is, you have to try to win because wins aren't going to fall in your lap."

Madsen's rally from 10th to fourth place earned him the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars. It also marked his fourth top five of the season with the series.

Big Game Motorsports plans to race this Saturday at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo., and Sunday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., with the World of Outlaws.

"I haven't been to U.S. 36 Raceway for 15 years it seems like," he said. "With as quick as the cars are today and that track has some juice to it, it's going to be fast and action packed. I-80 is always a fun place to go to as well. It's a bit bigger and slicker."

Nolen Racing’s Swanson Leads All the Way

In ‘Night Before the 500’ Saturday

WHITELAND, Ind., Aug. 25 — Seeing its driver, Kody Swanson, earn the pole and lead every lap to win the 40-lap asphalt sprint car feature during the “Night Before the 500” show Saturday night at Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, Ind. was the highlight of a busy weekend for Nolen Racing.

Things also started perfectly for the Whiteland, Ind.-based team for the two USAC Silver Crown races held over the Indy 500 weekend when Swanson qualified on the pole for the headliner of the Dave Steele Carb Night Classic at Lucas Oil Raceway on Friday night. His 31st pole extended his record as the driver who has won more USAC Silver Crown pole positions than anyone in history.

He also led the first 40 laps of the 100-lap race before he was forced to pit under yellow on lap 56 while running second due to a problem with a brake caliper. However, he returned to the track and still finished tenth.

Neither USAC Silver Crown cars nor Swanson flip very often, but that happened with nine laps down during the 65th running of the Hoosier Hundred Sunday night at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis. Luckily Swanson wasn’t hurt in the five-car accident. He was credited with a 26th-place finish and the team is now in second place in the overall point standings, 22 points behind Justin Grant, who has 199 points to Swanson’s 177.

The team’s next race is the Pay Less Little 500 asphalt sprint car race Saturday, Sept. 5 at Anderson Speedway in Anderson, Ind. It won that event in both 2018 and 2019 with Swanson.
