Three-Time POWRi Champ Riley Kreisel Plans for 2022 Season
 

Belleville, IL. (1/27/22) Never settling on the laurels of the past, three-time POWRi WAR Sprint League champion Riley Kreisel, of Warsaw Missouri, continually strives for more. With new possibilities for on-track achievements a common question remains, can Kreisel become the first Dual-Sprint Champion within POWRi sanctioning as the 2022 season approaches?

Entering rarified air by becoming the first-ever three-time champion by capturing titles in 2018, 2019, & 2020 within the POWRi Lucas Oil Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League, Riley Kreisel would take over the reins as team owner-operator to capture a league-leading four feature victories in 2020 while continually setting the bar for other competitors.

Tied for third on the POWRi WAR All-Time Feature Win List at ten career main-event victories, Kreisel would notch a solid third-place in the season standings for 2021 grabbing one Hot-Lap Top-Time accolade, six Heat Race Wins, two High Point Qualifier Awards, and a Semi-Feature Win on the year. Will Riley rebound within WAR racing to remain atop the championship chase once again?

Never a person to brag about his achievements, when asked about potential championship campaigns Riley stated, “As of right now we aren’t planning on running for any championships. That being said our dedication and work ethic in the shop will not change, we will continue to build championship-caliber cars and let the racing speak for itself, if our team is in contention then a decision would be made based on our team's best interest’s at that time.”

Racing the beautifully wrapped DKR Motorsports, Midwest Pools, Truman Lake Marine and Powersports, Advantech Dyno Service, LisaSellsTheLake.com, Royal Powersports, XXX Chassis, Speedway 410 Racing Engine, #91, Kreisel maintains a focused mind behind the wheel as he plans to also compete in the newly launched POWRi 410 Wing Outlaw Sprint League.

As the yearly quests loom, multiple storylines have started to develop such as will the proven non-wing talents of Kreisel convey to wing sprint racing, and will Riley chase championships in a pair of POWRi Sprint Leagues in 2022? The POWRi 410 Wing Outlaw Sprints season starts at Lake Ozark Speedway on April 2nd with the POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League beginning at US-36 Raceway on April 8th.

Flowdynamics Racing

(Ontario, CA, January 26, 2022) After a short offseason, the Flowdynamics Incorporated sprint car racing team will kick off 2022 this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, January 27th, 28th, and 29th, at the Cocopah Speedway in southwestern Arizona. The two-car team will once again feature up-and-coming drivers Matt McCarthy and Logan Williams.

This week’s USAC/CRA 18th season opener will mark the first time since 2013 the series has raced at the track that is approximately 10 miles from the Mexican border. Thus, it will be the first-ever race on the high-speed 3/8-mile oval not only for the team but for both of its drivers as well.

McCarthy, who lives in Riverside, California, and Williams, who calls Yorba Linda, California home, head into the 2022 campaign after career-best seasons in the USAC/CRA Series in 2021. Williams, who was Rookie of the Year in 2014, was 10th in the championship standings when the final checkered ended the campaign last November. McCarthy, who captured the rookie title in 2017, was only 15-points behind his teammate in 11th.

In 2021, both drivers had their series-best sixth-place finishes at USAC/CRA’s home track, Perris Auto Speedway. Williams accomplished the feat first on June 19th. Five weeks later on July 24th, it was McCarthy’s turn to place sixth at The PAS.

Both McCarthy and Williams captured open comp main events at the Barona Speedway in 2021. Behind the wheel of his familiar Flowdynamics #28M, McCarthy was the first of the teammates to take home a winner’s trophy and check on the San Diego County track when he bested the competition in early August. Williams finished second on that night. Two months later, Williams piloted the Roberson/Tramel sprint car to victory on the same quarter-mile oval.

This year both drivers will stay active during a much busier USAC/CRA season. The schedule shows 32-dates at the present time. After this week’s Arizona triple header, the Flowdynamics team will be back in action when it journeys to California Central Valley for races March 5th and 6th at the Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare and Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford.

Fans of McCarthy and Williams can watch the races in person this week at the Cocopah Speedway, which is located at 3450 West County 15th Street, in Somerton, Arizona (85350). Spectator gates will open at 4:00 p.m. each day with USAC/CRA cars on the track for hot laps at 6:00. Racing and qualifying will follow. The track phone number is 602-292-7607 and the website is http://www.racecocopahspeedway.com/.

For fans who cannot make it to Arizona for the race, all three nights will be shown on https://speedsport.tv/.

McCarthy and Williams would like to thank the following sponsors for making the 2022 season possible. Flowdynamics Inc., JFK Design Build, Cal-Therm Mechanical Insulators, CRC Component Repair Co., Encore Gas and Supply, Drink-Pac, and Benic Enterprises. If you or your company would like to climb on board and join up with one of the fastest rising sprint car teams west of the Mississippi, please contact John McCarthy at 909 930-5522 or mailto:john@flodyinc.com.

DCT Racing to run full USAC and Extreme Sprint Car series in 2022
Rossville, IN. (1/27/22) – DCT Racing has expanded its operation and is entering into
2022 with plans to run a full national sprint car schedule. DCT will be running
the USAC AMSOIL INC. National Sprints series, the Extreme Outlaws series, as well as select
local events. DCT will field 2 sprint cars in 2022 with Cole Bodine tabbed to drive the 57B and
select development drivers in the 57C. For its first event of 2022, DTC will run the Winter Dirt
Games in Florida with Cole Bodine driving the 57B and 16-year-old Jack Hoyer driving 57C. Cole
will be making his return to USAC sprint car racing while Jack will be making his first appearance
in a USAC national event. Team co-owner Lynn Crow was quoted “We are extremely excited
for this opportunity to grow and be a part of sprint car racing’s biggest series. When Kevin
Bodine (co-owner) and I looked at building a team, we had one goal-to build a quality team that
could compete at the highest level. Today we feel like we have the pieces in place to do that.
We are also grateful that with good sponsors, we have the opportunity to field a second car
that will open the door for new talent and other drivers looking for a team to race with”.
For his part, Kevin Bodine shared, “We are looking forward to what 2022 will bring, this is a
great opportunity for Cole and me to continue to work together and build on the successes of
the past. It will also be a great experience bringing on a second car and racing at the highest
level. We are prepared and Florida will be a great place for us to start this new chapter at DCT”.
DCT Racing:
Created by Lynn Crow and Kevin Bodine in June of 2019 to provide top-quality and sustainable
operations and equipment for 410 Non-Winged Sprint Car Racing. Crow and Bodine bring race-
day organization and preparedness as well as business and financial experience to optimize ROI
for sponsors, drivers, and the entire racing team.
Today Lynn and Kevin’s passion for racing has found them dedicating a great portion of time to

in the racing industry is working with talented drivers and helping them further their racing
careers.

assistance. They envisioned partnering with companies and advertisers to help offset racing
costs for the driver actively pursuing a career in racing.

BRODY ROA RETURNS TO THE SITE WHERE HE WON HIS FIRST 410 FEATURE

(Cypress, CA, January 25, 2022) This Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, January 27th through the 29th, Southern California Sprint car racing veteran Brody Roa will return to a track that holds a fond memory for him. The track is Arizona’s Cocopah Speedway and this week it hosts the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series’ first three races of the year. Ten years ago this coming June, Roa, then only 21 years old, scored his first-ever 410 sprint car win when the series raced on the same track.
 

Roa, who turned 31 today, first competed on the “Copper State” track in a 360-sprint car a month prior to his attention-grabbing initial 410 win. He has not been back to Cocopah since the series contested two races there in 2013. That makes it four races total for the friendly driver on the beautiful 3/8-mile racing facility that is 10-miles north of the Mexican border.

“Yeah, it doesn’t seem like it was that long ago,” the Garden Grove, California resident said when reminded how much time had passed since that first win. “Really it seems like just yesterday. From the same point, it seems like the last time we were at Cocopah (2013) was ages ago.”

Since that win, a lot has changed in sprint car racing and in the life of the now-married father of a 17-month-old little girl.

“Probably nothing,” Roa stated when asked what he can use from that win for this week’s races. “I am obviously a different driver the last nine or 10 years. The cars are different, and we are not even on the same tire anymore. But we found our notebook from 2012 and found out what gear we ran. So, I guess we will take something from 10-years ago to this year.”

Since the series has not been to Cocopah since 2013, all the drivers are pretty much coming into the event on a level playing table. In fact, many of the current drivers were not part of USAC/CRA when the troupe last appeared there. Roa is one of the drivers who remembers the track fondly.

“I did 10-years ago,” Roa quipped when asked if he liked the Cocopah track. “Really, I am excited to go back there. I have wanted to go back since the last time we were there. The last time it went rubber down on like lap three, so it was not a whole lot of fun that time. But the track itself is fun and the casino across the street is cool.”

The makeup of Roa’s #91R team will certainly be different this time around. The time he won there, it was a total family effort.

“When we won in 2012, it was just me, my dad, my grandpa, and my Uncle B,” Roa said. “Zac was not around (Zac Bozanich, now Roa’s award-winning crew chief) and I did not even know Joe (longtime crewman Joe Gibb) yet. It was just myself and my family.”

Roa goes into the 2022 season after a successful year in 2021. Of the 28 sprint car races he started last year, he won four of them, finished in the runner-up spot four times, and placed third six times. He ended up with 17 top-five finishes and 21 top 10s. The only series he ran for points in last season was the USAC/CRA Series where he ended up second in the championship standings.

Roa fans who want to watch “The Pride of Garden Grove” in person this week, can find Cocopah Speedway at 3450 West County 15th Street, in Somerton, Arizona (85350). Spectator gates will open at 4:00 p.m. each day with USAC/CRA cars on the track for hot laps at 6:00. Racing and qualifying will follow. The track phone number is 602-292-7607 and the website is http://www.racecocopahspeedway.com/.

For fans who cannot make it to Arizona for the race, all three nights will be shown on https://speedsport.tv/.

ALL SYSTEMS ARE GO FOR 19TH RUNNING OF THE ATLANTIC CITY INDOOR RACES JANUARY 28-29

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ JANUARY 26, 2022 . . . The track is built and the Indoor Auto Racing Series is ready to go racing inside Atlantic City, NJ’s Boardwalk Hall for the 19th running of the NAPA KNOW Racing Weekend this weekend, Friday and Saturday Jan. 28-29.

On Wednesday, series staff completed the construction of the race track and race teams began arriving to park their trailers in anticipation of Thursday night’s open practice session that is open to only those who purchase a weekend pit pass.

Over 130 competitors, spread over the three divisions of racing, TQ Midgets, Slingshots and Champ Karts have filed entries for the prestigious event.

The TQ Midget entry list reads like a Who’s Who in auto racing including four drivers who have won the past nine Saturday night 40 lap Gambler’s Classic.

Popular Andy Jankowiak, Tonawanda, NY, ‘Classic’ winner in 2019 and 2020, could become the first man to win three straight Classics.

Two three-time winners, Erick Rudolph, Ransomville, NY, (2012, 2015, 2016) and Anthony Sesely, Matawan, NJ, (2012, 2015, 2017) could make ‘Classic’ history by becoming the first four-time ‘Classic’ winner.

Ryan Flores, Davidson, NC. (2018) will be bidding for a second ‘Classic’ win. Flores comes into Atlantic City having won the Indoor Auto Racing Series season opener in Allentown, PA’s PPL Center on Saturday, January 8.

Mike Christopher, Jr., Wolcott, CT., who will be a first time entrant in the Gambler’s Classic, is the nephew of the late Ted Christopher, who won The Gambler’s Classic in 2009 and 2011. After an Indoor Series debut in Allentown, he’s expected to be a contender.

Mooresville, NC hot shoe Max McLaughlin also be making his first ever Atlantic City start after making his series debut as well in Allentown.

Three-time and defending NASCAR Whelen Modified Touring Series champion Justin Bonsignore returns to the series to drive Jason Simmons’ No. 98 TQ, the same car that was driven to a Qualifier victory and a top ten A Main feature finish in Allentown, PA two weeks ago by Billy Pauch, Jr whose sister is getting married on Saturday.

Simmons, of Fulton, NY has also entered a second car, numbered 98T, for 2019 Oswego Speedway Super Modified Classic winner Tyler Thompson to drive. Simmons has also filed entries for a pair of Champ Karts.

No less than four Catalano brothers, from upstate Ontario, NY, are entered for Atlantic City. Timmy, Tommy and Trevor will run TQ Midgets; youngest brother Tyler will campaign a Champ Kart.

The PA Posse will be out to win the Gambler’s Classic for the first time in 12, just the third time in history. Matt Janisch of Nazareth or Tim Buckwalter of Douglasville could be just the guy after constant up front finishes. Jansich’s teammate, noted Young Gun Briggs Danner of Allentown and Pat Bealer of Leighton are also expected to be in the hunt.

Recent entries from Dylan Woodling in a radical TQ Midget he debuted in Atlantic City in 2020 and Kalamazoo, MI driver Grant Valkner in a Lou Cicconi TQ will also be someone to keep an eye on.

In the Champ Karts, Doug Stearly, Trappe, PA, will be bidding for a third straight A-Main Gambler’s feature victory. Stearly also has fielded an entry to race in the TQ Midget field.

Scott Neary, Columbia, NJ won the 2020 Slingshot A-Main, and is in the field for the 2022 race as well.

Among those who will be contending for the win with Neary is Morgan Rochelle-Bealer, who was crowned Aqua-Duck Water Transport Ms. Motorsports 2022 on January 22 in Oaks, PA.

Rochelle-Bealer made her first Indoor Slingshot start on Jan. 9 in Allentown, PA and finished 15th in the feature. Were she to win the A-Main in Atlantic City, she would be in the unprecedented position of receiving and presenting the race trophy.

Good seats for both night remain available at Ticketmaster, a direct link is available from the series web-site, indoorautoracing.com, or daily at the Boardwalk Hall Box Office where the price is increased by $5 the day of the event.

For everyone’s safety at the event, the state owned building will require fans to wear a mask when they enter Boardwalk Hall and be recommended when they are walking around the building. They will not be required to wear a mask when in their seat or when they are eating or drinking. Masks are not required in the privately owned casinos.

After this weekend’s Atlantic City’s events the series will conclude in Syracuse, N.Y. at the New York State Fairgrounds Exposition Center on Friday and Saturday, March 11 & 12. Those tickets are on sale and available to purchase through a link on the series website www.indoorautoracing.com.

In anticipation of another wildly successful event, promoter Len Sammons has booked Friday and Saturday, January 27-28, 2023 in Boardwalk Hall for the 20th running of the NAPA KNOW HOW Gambler’s Classic.

 

 

After a Decade of Dormancy Benic 2B Racing Non-Wing Sprint Car Returns

Released by: 2B Racing Media Advisory Scott Pennington

Marion, IN Wednesday January 26, 2022 - Benic Enterprises, a name synonymous with sprint and midget car racing, announced the resurrection of the 2B Racing, LLC, non-wing sprint car program, which hasn’t raced since May of 2012, when Bobby East drove to victory lane at the Larry Rice Classic at Bloomington Speedway. Owned by husband-and-wife team Scott and Dana Benic, the new team puts California-transplant Chad Boespflug behind the wheel and will compete in the new Xtreme Outlaw non-wing series recently formed by the World of Outlaws.

Scott Benic, the 1994 World of Outlaws Crew Chief of the Year and USAC Racing’s only Triple Crown Crew Chief, said “Dana and I are extremely excited to work on putting the 2B Racing Team back and on the track and hope to find speed out of the box beginning next month at Volusia Speedway for Round 1 of the new series. We will still be part of the Goodnight Racing team and hope to continue that relationship for the foreseeable future. Working with Chad should bring some fun and excitement to the fold. He had great speed in recent years and then stepped away from driving duties over the last few to concentrate on business ventures, but now is ready to step back in with both feet on the gas.”

Boespflug, whose resume includes nine career USAC National Sprint Car wins and a sweep of the inaugural Rock and Roll Gold Cup weekend at Badlands Motor Speedway, is equally as thrilled. “Not racing but a few times in 2021 was a good reset for me,” he said. “I was just burnt out from chasing it for so long. I would have raced more but the right opportunities just didn’t present themselves. The chance to race for Scott Benic and 2B Racing has me excited to go racing again. It’s going to be a really fun year and I can’t wait to get back after it.”

Benic is partnering with the Lake Ozark Performance Expo in this racing effort, an all-new motorsports and automotive aftermarket trade show which takes place in Lake Ozark, MO, November 11-13th. The Lake Ozark Performance Expo will host manufacturers, exhibitors, and vendors from across the racing, custom vehicle, and performance aftermarket industry. Racers, restorers, and enthusiasts from throughout the Midwest will be able to see new products and services from hundreds of exhibitors, as well as attend technical seminars and admire a wide spectrum of show cars and trucks.

The new 2B Racing, LLC non-wing sprint cars will utilize Maxim Chassis, ride on Afco shocks, and have motors built by the venerable Claxton Engines. The team is very happy to have already secured a number of great sponsors, including Afco, Capitol Custom Trailers and Coaches, Champion Oil. CTech Manufacturing, DMI Machine, Goodnight Racing, Hoosier Tire, The Swindell Group, and XYZ Machining.

Upcoming Events
2/14 Xtreme Outlaw Series at Volusia Speedway Park - Barberville, FL
2/15 Xtreme Outlaw Series at Volusia Speedway Park - Barberville, FL
All dates are tentative and subject to change.

 

 

Nearly $35,000 Posted for MSCS Non-Wing Sprint Doubleheader;

Features Will Pay $5,000 to Win at Gas City I-69 Speedway

And Kokomo Speedway on July 8-9

HAUBSTADT, Ind., Jan. 26 – With nearly $35,000 in posted purses awaiting competitors, the Midwest Sprint Car Series (MSCS) will venture to north central Indiana for a major two-night, non-wing sprint car doubleheader July 8-9 at Gas City I-69 Speedway and Kokomo Speedway.

Purses exceeding $16,000 each night will pay $5,000 to win and $250 to start the 30-lap features on the quarter-mile clay ovals.

In what is expected to be a highly anticipated weekend for fans and top sprint car teams from the Midwest, the action kicks off Friday night, July 8 at Gas City I-69 Speedway with the fifth annual “Jerry Gappens, Sr. Classic.” Gappens, who passed away in 2012, was a former driver, promoter, and the father of current track promoter Jerry Gappens, Jr.

On Saturday night, July 9, teams will travel west approximately 30 miles to compete in the “Darland Classic” at Kokomo Speedway. The event honors one of the most popular families in Indiana sprint car history and the father-son team of Bob and Dave Darland. With Bob serving as car owner and chief mechanic, son Dave won numerous features and track championships at Kokomo in their family No. 36D.

Dave went on to become USAC’s all-time leading sprint car winner. He is a USAC Triple Crown champion, as he won the USAC Silver Crown title in 1997, the USAC sprint championship in 1999, and the USAC national midget championships in both 2001 and 2002. His nickname is “The People’s Champ,” and he is a member of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame. Bob Darland passed away in 2002, while Dave hasn’t raced since a medical issue sidelined him in April 2021.

The MSCS was founded in 2001 and promotes non-wing sprint car racing primarily in the southern portion of Indiana. The Helfrich family took over ownership of the series in 2006 with the family’s Tri-State Speedway serving as its home track.

MSCS Director Kevin Bayer says he expects a great field of sprint cars for the lucrative doubleheader.

“This will be a tremendous weekend for non-wing sprint car racing in Indiana,” said Bayer. “We are looking forward to our inaugural event at Kokomo and returning to Gas City for the first time since 2018.”

The complete 2022 MSCS schedule will be released soon. Fans and competitors can follow the series on Facebook at Midwest Sprint Car Series or log onto mscssprints.com for all the latest info.

 

 

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Chasing World of Outlaws Championship in 2022

Inside Line Promotions - WINDOM, Minn. (Jan. 26, 2022) - A fresh design and heightened goals highlight the end to the offseason for Big Game Motorsports and David Gravel, who return to the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series trail in two weeks following a successful first season together.

The team placed second in the 2021 World of Outlaws championship standings - a career best for Gravel and tied for the best ever for the team. The next step is a championship, which is the ultimate goal.

"It was a great first year," Gravel said. "We're keeping most of the team from last year so I'm really looking forward to continuing to build my relationship with Cody (Jacobs) and the guys. We have most of the same equipment. I feel we should start off pretty close and then fine-tune."

Gravel captured 11 World of Outlaws victories last year, which is the most in a single season for Big Game Motorsports since 2012. The team added three non-sanctioned wins for a total of 14 trips into Victory Lane.

"We had a great season and still have room to grow so I'm excited for our potential," Gravel said. "Hopefully we can start off the year on a strong note at Volusia. It's a track where I've been successful, but don't have a lot of wins."

The season is slated to begin with the 51st annual DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla., which runs Feb. 8-12 with the first two nights being sanctioned by the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions followed by the first three World of Outlaws races of the season.

2022 WESTERN MIDGET RACING SEASON OPENS AT AODBE MOUNTAIN THIS SATURDAY

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (January 26, 2022) – The fourth season of stock production-powered Midget racing begins Saturday in Glendale, Ariz. when the Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction competes at Adobe Mountain Speedway. Just eleven weeks ago, the bullring served as the site for the series’ exciting championship finale with Brentwood’s Blake Bower topping Fresno’s David Prickett for the overall title.

TAFOYA JR. OPENS UP THE 2022 SPRINT CAR SEASON THIS WEEK AT COCOPAH

(Chino Hills, CA, January 24, 2022) Fresh off the best season of his young career, Eddie Tafoya Jr. will kick off the 2022 USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series campaign this Thursday Friday, and Saturday, January 27, 28, and 29, at Arizona’s Cocopah Speedway. The races will be the first of three for the Chino Hills, California-based driver on the expanded 32-race series schedule.

Tafoya comes into the new season after an impressive year in 2021. The 2018 Perris Auto Speedway Young Guns Sprint Car champion, finished eighth in the USAC/CRA Series point standings. In 17 starts in the toughest non-wing sprint car series west of the Mississippi, “Mr. Smooth” recorded seven top 10 finishes, five top-fives, and one top three. His best outing came at Perris Auto Speedway when he placed third on July 17th. That race would have been surpassed by what seemed to be a sure second-place run at the prestigious Salute to Indy at Perris on Memorial Day weekend. However, with less than five laps to go in that yellow flag-plagued main event, Tafoya ran out of fuel.

In addition to his 17 races in the USAC/CRA Series, the now 24-year-old made 12 appearances in Indiana in the USAC National Sprint Car Series, and one open show start at the Bob Darland Memorial. Those treks to the Heartland saw him compete and gain valuable experience on eight different tracks.

This week’s races will be the first for the USAC/CRA Series at Somerton, Arizona’s Cocopah Speedway since 2013. Thus, it will be Tafoya’s first experience on the extremely fast 3/8 of a mile oval.

This year’s 32-race USAC/CRA schedule will see Tafoya, who was crowned series Rookie of the Year in 2019, compete on a minimum of seven western tracks. Perris Auto Speedway, the home track of the now 18-year-old series, will lead the way with 10 different dates including the 26th Annual Heimark/Anheuser Busch Budweiser Oval Nationals in November. Cocopah, Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, California, and the Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, California will host three races each. The Series will invade Arizona’s Mohave Valley Raceway for the first time with dates in April and October. Annual stops at the Bakersfield Speedway and at the beach at the Ventura Raceway will take place in May and June. In addition, there are nine races at tracks yet to be announced.

For fans who would like to see Tafoya kick off his 2022 campaign in person, spectator gates will open at 4:00 p.m. each day with USAC/CRA cars on the track for hot laps at 6:00 with racing and qualifying to follow. Cocopah Speedway is located at 3450 West County 15th Street, in Somerton, Arizona (85350). The track phone number is 602-292-7607 and the website is http://www.racecocopahspeedway.com/.

For fans who cannot make it to Arizona for the race, all three nights will be shown on the https://speedsport.tv/.

Tafoya and his team would like to thank the following sponsors for making the 2022 racing campaign possible. Specialty Fasteners, DRC Chassis, Ryder Racing Engines, Simpson Safety Products, Bell, Benic Enterprises, BR Motorsports, PSC Powder Coating, and Magik Graphics.

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

Fans can follow Tafoya on Instagram @eddietafoya51. The same contact point can be used to purchase his great-looking shirts via mail.

Ayrton Gennetten Aims for POWRi 410 Wing Outlaw Sprint League Wins
 

Belleville, IL. (1/24/22) Quickly establishing a dominant racing program throughout the Midwest, third-generation open-wheel talent Ayrton Gennetten of Versailles Missouri, will next embark on a quest of national notoriety with commitments at events within the developing Lucas Oil POWRi 410 Wing Outlaw Sprint League.

Emerging as a threat of on-track dominance every time he enters an event, Gennetten is no stranger to gaining victory hardware in various classes. Acquiring a coveted Golden Driller in the 2017 A-Class Tulsa Shootout, Ayrton continued his progression in the sport by earning the 2017 360-Rookie of Year award presented by Knoxville Raceway.

Gaining a points championship in 2020 with the ASCS Warrior Region, Ayrton would set his sights a little higher the following year by notching the 2021 Knoxville Nationals Rookie of the Race as well as the 2021 Knoxville Nationals Rookie of the Year award.

Finishing an outstanding season of competition in 2021, Gennetten would find victory lane on nine separate occasions between 360 and 410 races while driving his iconic and family-familiar #3 into thirty-two top-ten finishes throughout sixty-three events entered with a phenomenal crew supporting including Steve Gennetten, Chad Morgan, Steve Daniels, and Randy Johnson.

Heading into 2022 Ayrton emphasized “We want to run anywhere and everywhere with the goal of winning races on our mind, from Outlaws, Knoxville, All-Stars, POWRi, and whatever else. We haven’t set our sights on points for POWRi, but if situations fall right, and we have a shot come September of winning it, you can count on us going for the championship.”

Representing Fischer Body Shop, Baughman Motorsports, Ozark Barge & Dock Service, Wet Steps, Hibdon Gravel, West Side Automation, Midland Performance, The Stuart House, Tony Stuart Racing (TSR), Pro Powder Coating, High-Performance Lubricants, Momentum Racing Suspensions, Fiberworks Composites proudly, Gennetten aims for continued success entering into the 2022 season with scheduled appearances on the year within the POWRi 410 Wing Outlaw Sprints.

“I’m excited there’s a lot of good racing in the Midwest, with the addition of the POWRi League, that will just continue to grow the level of 410 competition around Missouri. To say I’m excited is an understatement, I’ve dreamed of racing 410s with the help from the Fischer’s and the tracks bringing 410 racing here is a dream! I just wish it was five years ago when we first got into racing sprints” concluded Gennetten.

Will Ayrton become the first-ever feature winner and perhaps claim the inaugural championship within the Lucas Oil POWRi 410-Wing Outlaw Sprint League, with the season starting at Lake Ozark Speedway on Saturday, April 2nd?

Must See Racing
 

PERRYSBURG, Ohio (Jan. 22, 2021) – Must See Racing honored its top performers from the 2021 racing season on Saturday night during the sanctioning body’s Celebration of Champions presented by Engine Pro, held at the Fremont Pike Quality Inn.

More than $25,000 in prize money and contingency awards were handed out as the pavement winged sprint car sanctioning body closed the book on its 12th season of operations and looked ahead toward 2022.

Among the drivers and teams recognized were the top 15 from the Engine Pro Fast Car Dash mini-series for the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series, as well as the top 10 from the Must See Racing Midwest Lights Series season-long point standings.

Charlie Schultz and Jimmy McCune were feted as co-champions for the five-race Fast Car Dash mini-series, due to a tie in the final points, while Joey Wyckoff was recognized as the second champion in as many seasons for the growing Midwest Lights division for 602 crate engine-powered machines.

“We have a fierce rivalry on the race track, but on a night like this we know how to have a little bit of fun too,” noted McCune of Schultz. “Rumor has it that after this is all over, we’re going to find a way to break that tie somehow (laughter).”

Added Wyckoff, “It’s been an honor and a privilege to compete with Must See Racing and to be standing here as the Midwest Lights champion for 2021 is something I’ll remember for a long time. We’re not sure what the future holds right now for my Must See Racing career, but we appreciate everything Jim and Nancy Hanks, as well as Maxima Racing Oil and Engine Pro have done for the series this season.”

The two highest honors handed out Saturday night came at the very end of the program, both given to unsuspecting drivers who have made a major impact in Must See Racing’s national 410 sprint car scene.

Tom Jewell was named the inaugural recipient of the new Jerry Caryer Iron Man Award, recognizing the driver who not only attended the most Must See Racing national events over the past five seasons, but also made the most consistent positive impact on the series and sanctioning body during that time.

The Jerry Caryer Iron Man Award is in memory of the late Caryer, one of Must See Racing’s longest tenured competitors who passed away unexpectedly in August of 2020. It features a plaque given to the driver as well as a perpetual trophy which will remain at Must See Racing’s Michigan base of operations.

“I’m completely blown away,” said Jewell. “I wasn’t expecting this at all. It’s a true honor, as Jerry was a friend to so many of us and a valued competitor in this series. We definitely miss him.”

Meanwhile, Joe Liguori was named Must See Racing’s 410 Driver of the Year on the strength of a breakout season that saw him record two feature victories, three fast qualifying times and – had there been a season-long points system in place for 2021 – would have given him a championship in three out of four possible scenarios.

“If there wasn’t going to be a big trophy this year, this is the award you want to bring back to the shop,” Liguori pointed out following his acceptance speech. “We had a great year with the No. 13 car and, hopefully, we can find a way to top it during the season to come.”

Must See Racing Sprint Car Series sponsor Engine Pro’s Tom Stuyvesant was the night’s keynote speaker, while Must See Racing founder and president Jim Hanks delivered the annual State of the Series Address to kick off the program.

During that speech, Hanks noted a renewed sense of enthusiasm surrounding the sanction’s upcoming campaigns for both the national 410 series and the Midwest Lights, as well as a return to a full-season points structure and season-ending points fund for the national tour for 2022.

“Where we’ve been was really good and provided our fans with a ton of entertainment, but I think where we’re going has the potential to be the best season we’ve ever had,” noted Hanks.

Must See Racing’s 2022 event schedule will begin April 28-30 with its national 410 sprint car tour competing at Virginia’s South Boston Speedway for the first time.

Williamson Wins at Las Vegas Dirt Nationals During Season-Opening Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - LAS VEGAS (Jan. 24, 2022) - Garet Williamson kicked off the 2022 campaign in style by recording a victory last weekend during the Las Vegas Dirt Nationals.

The Bryant Paver Motorsports driver made the most of his debut at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway by contending for a win on the opening night of the Bandits Outlaw Sprints Series tripleheader, claiming Round 2 and rallying for a fourth-place result in the finale.

"It's great to get a win during the first weekend of the year," Williamson said. "That takes the pressure off. I'm happy with how the weekend went as we had a fast car and we were a contender."

Williamson hustled from third to win a heat race on Thursday, earning the outside front row starting position for the feature. He led the opening circuits before dropping to second.

"Chase Randall got by me on the bottom," he said. "I didn't know that the bottom lane had come in. We didn't get a chance to battle back because we blew a right rear tire a lap or two later. It tore up quite a bit on the car so we were unable to get back out there."

Williamson was credited with a ninth-place finish following the DNF.

Friday's action featured a second-place result in a heat race, which lined Williamson up on the outside of the front row for the main event for the second straight race. However, high winds postponed the feature until Saturday.

Once the racing began a slight stumble on a restart dropped Williamson to fourth. He gained a position for a late-race restart when the leader had a problem and brought out a caution. Williamson capitalized by rocketing from third to the lead and he held on during the final two laps for the triumph.

"We got a really good restart and then I was able to slide the leader," he said. "It was a great rebound from the way the first feature ended on Thursday."

The event wrapped up that evening with Williamson advancing from fifth to fourth place in a heat race and from seventh to fourth in the A Main.

"The track rubbered up from the time we went out there so there wasn't a lot of opportunity to pass," he said. "We got what we could and salvaged a top-five result."

Williamson will be off the next few weekends before the team ventures to Florida to tackle the Ronald Laney Memorial King of the 360s, which runs Feb. 17-19 at East Bay Raceway Park near Tampa.

Joel Myers Jr Scores Second and Third Place Finishes at Las Vegas Dirt Nationals

PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking part in the Las Vegas Dirt Nationals at the Las Vegas Dirt Track last week with Doug Rutz and Rutz Racing, Joel Myers Jr overcame an opening night flip to net second and third place finishes.

“Thursday night I felt really good in my heat race, but unfortunately I clipped an infield tire while I was working the bottom and I went for a pretty good ride,” Myers Jr said. “We went to a backup car and didn’t make the call for the feature that night as we prepared for the final two nights of action.”

Running second in his heat race on Thursday night in Sin City, contact with a barrier would send the Sebastopol, CA driver up the track in a series of roll overs and would essentially bring his opening night to an end.

With the team going to a back up car for the rest of the weekend, Myers Jr would continue to show speed on the mile speedway located just outside of the famed Las Vegas ‘Strip’.

Windy conditions would greet the competitors as the sun began to set in the desert, but Myers Jr would not let his slow him as he was able to pick up the heat race win and set himself up nicely for the impending feature event.

As the wind worsened, officials opted to postpone the feature for the winged cars and decided to run the Friday night feature after Saturday night hot laps took place.

Deciding to make a tire change before the make up feature, Myers would take the green flag from the back of the pack per series and event rules. Flexing his muscles from the tail end of the field, ‘Jr’ would race his way up to second when a timely caution would bunch the field back up and give the youngster a shot at the race lead.

The ensuring restart did not go the way Junior had hoped and it would actually cost him a spot as he capped the first feature of the night off with a third-place finish.

Moving into heat race action for the night show, Myers Jr would again pocket another heat race win and put himself up front for the start of the final feature event of the weekend.

When the race came to life, the 15-year-old pilot would settle into third for the opening 10-laps before he made a big move that netted him the lead for the next four circuits.

A lap 14 restart would see the field line up on his rear bumper and he would lose the top spot to Garren Linder and would slip back to second where he would go on to close the weekend out.

“I really want to thank Doug Rutz and my family for all of their support and making this trip possible,” Myers Jr added. “It was great to get back to racing so early in the year, and I am looking forward to my first race with Vertullo Motorsports here in about a month.”

Joel Myers Jr Racing would like to thank All About Fire Protection, Dirt Dudes, Amerikote, PitStopUSA, Y2K Gaming, Shark Racing Engines, Lucas Oil, Vaider, L Delo Designs, Factory Kahne Shocks, Walker Performance Filtration, ShopRico.Com, Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Kaeding Performance, and Triple X Race Co. for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 3, Wins-0, Top-5’s- 2, Top-10’s-2

ON TAP: Myers Jr will return to action on February 26th in Hanford, CA.

MORGAN ROCHELLE IS CROWNED MS. MOTORSPORTS 2022 AS PPB MOTORSPORTS SHOW OPENS TO LARGE ENTHUSIASTIC CROWD, THRONG OF EXHIBITORS DOES BIG BUSINESS; DAY TWO TOMORROW, SAT. JAN 22

OAKS, PA JANUARY 21, 2022 . . . Aisles were jammed, cash registers were ringing and flash bulbs were clicking non-stop at the PPB Motorsports 2022 Show on Friday, January 21, Day One of the annual show that was unable to take place in 2021 owing to the pandemic.

The highlight of Day One was the annual Aqua-Duck Water Transport Ms. Motorsports pageant. Morgan Rochelle of Schnecksville, PA was crowned Ms. Motorsports 2022. In addition to her beauty, Morgan is a racer, driving 600 Micro Sprints primarily at Hamlin Speedway. Megan Williams of Kutztown, PA was first runner-up and Emilee Mills of Milford, DE was third runner-up. Ms. Motorsports 2020-2021, Andrea Cap, crowned her successor.

Racing parts manufacturers, distributors, and speedway operators praised the size of and the nature of the crowd that passed through the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center throughout the afternoon and evening Friday.

JC’s Race Parts of Barberton, OH was a first time PPB Show exhibitor. “I do 20 shows a year and Motorsports had always conflicted with another show closer to home. That show was cancelled this year and I was able to be here,” Jeremy Canada, JC principal said. “I’m very happy with the way the show is turning out. I understand that Saturdays at this show are usually bigger and expect an even better day tomorrow.” JC’s sells race fuel containers, catch cans and related hardware.

Peter Reynolds, Director of Marketing at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, NY, was ‘iron-manning’ the track’s booth that featured Tanner VanDoren’s Big Block Modified. “I’ve seen a lot of drivers who race with us here at the show, met a lot of others who are interested in racing at Orange County this year who wanted to ask some questions about our schedule, and a lot of fans who are interested in getting info about buying tickets. It was a great first day for the Motorsports Show.”

American Racer Tire of Indiana, PA, was represented by Dustin Leverknight. “I spent the whole day answering questions from racers,” Leverknight said. “It’s good to see such interest. Some of what we had to tell the racers wasn’t necessarily welcome news, but it is always a benefit to meet the racers face to face, and that’s what this show allows.”

Randy LaJoie, President of The Joie of Seating in Mooresville, NC, said that he is coming off his best year in the past ten. “A lot of the shows we used to go to have fallen by the wayside. Getting back here to Motorsports this weekend feels good,” LaJoie said.

Reading, PA-based DMI/Bulldog Rear Ends day-to-day operations manager Dave Ely was very pleased with PPB Motorsports 2022 Day One activity. “We were busy today. It’s important for us to be here. This show and others, to my way of thinking, deserve the support of businesses who benefit from it,” Ely shared.

Tomorrow, Saturday, January 22 is the second and final day of PPB Motorsports 2022. Show hours are from 11:00 AM through 7:00 PM.

 

 

CLOVIS’ DOMINIC GORDEN MAKES IMPRESSION WITH STRONG TULSA RUNS

CLOVIS, CALIFORNIA (January 21, 2022) – 16-year-old Dominic Gorden of Clovis, Calif. made his mark on the Tulsa Expo Center during the 36th Chili Bowl Midget Nationals and 37th Tulsa Shootout. In just his fourth career full Midget start, Gorden raced in the C-Feature during Saturday’s competition on MAVTV with a seventh-place finish.

It capped a week of breakthrough performances for the driver of the No. 83 CB Industries/Gary Silva Ranches Spike powered by Toyota. Gorden competed in Wednesday’s qualifying night, finishing fourth in his heat race to advance to the qualifier. A run from tenth to fifth in the qualifier lined Gorden third in the second B-Feature. He advanced to the main event with an 18th starting position. Gorden moved forward six places to ultimately finish 12th.

The 12th place finish on Wednesday earned Gorden a tenth place starting position in Saturday’s C-Feature. He raced up to seventh, missing the transfer by just two positions in competition televised live on MAVTV.

The eight-time 2021 Micro Sprint winner in California raced in three POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget races in October.

Earlier this winter, Gorden competed in the Tulsa Shootout for Ten-J Chassis. The world’s largest Micro Sprint competition attracted 1,700 entrants to Oklahoma. Gorden raced quadruple duty and picked up a heat race win in Outlaw Wing, and top-threes in his Winged A-Class and Outlaw Non-Wing heat races.

Second place in the Winged A-Class Qualifier seeded him into the B-Main. He won B-Main six, then finished fourth in the LCQ to line-up 20th on the grid for the Winged A-Class main event. A third place in Outlaw Non-Wing’s qualifier four qualified him to start 11th in the A-Feature.

He advanced four positions in the Stock A-Class feature for a 16th place Tulsa Shootout finish. His standout performance took place in the Outlaw Non-Wing feature where he moved from 11th to eighth at the finish.

The 2022 season for Dominic Gorden begins in February with USAC National Midget competition at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Florida. Gorden will compete for the Xtreme Outlaw Series Midget championship for Chad Boat Industries while competing in numerous USAC and POWRi National Midget races as well.

Dominic Gorden thanks: Teresa and Gary Silva Ranches, CB Industries, JI Apparel company, SRT, Pristine Auction, K&C Drywall and TRD for their support!

JUSTIN BONSIGNORE, NASCAR WHELEN MOD TOUR CHAMPION, RETURNS TO INDOOR TQ RACING; WILL DRIVE JASON SIMMONS’ NO. 98 IN ATLANTIC CITY GAMBLER’S CLASSIC JANUARY 28-29

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. JANUARY 20, 2022 . . . Three-time and defending NASCAR Whelen Modified Touring Series champion Justin Bonsignore of Holtsville, NY is the latest driver to enter the Indoor Auto Racing Series NAPA KNOW HOW Gambler’s Classic, set for the weekend of Jan. 28-29, 2022 in Atlantic City, NJ inside Boardwalk Hall.

Bonsignore will drive Jason Simmons’ No. 98 TQ, the same car that was driven to a Qualifier victory and a top ten A Main feature finish in Allentown, PA two weeks ago by Billy Pauch, Jr.

Simmons, of Fulton, NY, will enter a second TQ Midget, No. 97, with the driver to be determined. He has also filed entries for a pair of Champ Karts,

Bonsignore and Simmons struck a deal less than two weeks prior to the Atlantic City race. Bonsignore said he would be available, schedule wise, to drive Simmons' car in the mid-March Syracuse TQ Indoor Series finale were Simmons to want to put in the car.

“I have never been able put together a full TQ weekend there though I have run pretty well at times. I've had pretty good success overall with the Indoor stuff, but just not as much as I would have liked to have had,” Bonsignore said.

Indoor Auto Racing Series promoter Len Sammons saluted the entry of Bonsignore.

“When Justin raced TQ Midgets with us before, he was a threat the first time he got behind the wheel He’s won before and he can be a contender again,” Sammons noted.

Bonsignore, 34, has three career Indoor Auto Racing Series wins to his credit, in two classes and in three buildilngs.

In January 2018, Bonsignore won his first TQ Midget race, in the PPL Center in Allentown, PA. That winning ride set up his run to the 2018 Series championship.

He followed that up with a win at the Syracuse, NY Expo Center on March 8, 2019.

Bonsignore also won a Champ Kart feature on December 4, 2009, at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence RI.

Bonsignore joins the one-two Allentown Indoor Auto Racing Series punch of race winner Ryan Flores and runner-up Andy Jankowiak. Jankowiak has won the last two Gambler’s Classics.

Erick Rudolph and car owner Mark Lafler are returning to Boardwalk Hall after missing the Allentown race. The team has won three Gambler’s Classics together.

Promoter Sammons noted the importance to the Indoor Auto Racing Series of the Atlantic City Races, first introduced by Sammons in 2003.

“Atlantic City is the Crown Jewel of the Indoor Auto Racing Series,” Sammons said.

“Indoor Auto Racing is a spectacle in itself, and when the racing is as tightly contested as it was in Allentown a few weeks back, the fans had to be leaving eager for more,” said Series promoter Len Sammons.

Good tickets for the Atlantic City races are on sale now in a range of prices through Ticketmaster, the Boardwalk Hall Box Office or the Area Auto Racing News office at 609-888-3618 weekdays from 10 am to 4 pm.

New for 2022 will be an expanded reserved seating option in Atlantic City. Upper reserved seating has been expanded to include all of sections 209 through 217. General admission seats will be still be available in sections 202-208 and 218-225 for those wishing to purchase those tickets or holding a pit pass.

“The upper level seats in the corner in Atlantic City offer some of the best views of the track, this change will allow people the option to secure their favorite seat in advance,” stated Len Sammons.

First time Boardwalk Hall TQ entrants include versatile Max McLaughlin, second generation New England Modified standout Mike Christopher Jr., Shea Wills, in the elderly but still very quick Tim Adams TQ, Champ Kart standout Doug Stearly who will be driving Ken Sebring’s TQ Midget, and Tyler Lindsay, who, in first Indoor ever TQ Midget start in Allentown earlier this month came within a quarter of inch of qualifying for the A Main, but was disqualified by a post-race tech width violation.

No less than four Catalano brothers, from upstate Ontario, NY, are entered for Atlantic City. Timmy, Tommy and Trevor will run TQ Midgets; youngest brother Tyler will campaign a Champ Kart.

An even 50 Champ Karts from eight states (CT, MA, MD, NH, NJ. NY, PA, RI).

Some 31 Slingshots are entered from four states, 27 from New Jersey or Pennsylvania and two each from New York and Quebec.

A closed-to-the-public practice night will again be held on Thursday evening January 27.

New Jersey State public safety rules require the wearing of face covering upon entry into Boardwalk Hall, and recommends wearing of masks when in concourses and walkways inside the building. Masks are not required when seated nor when consuming food or beverages.

 

 

Zearfoss welcomes back all major partners for 2022 World of Outlaws campaign

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (January 19, 2022) – His upcoming campaign may be new, but Brock Zearfoss’ team is not, as the Jonestown, Pennsylvania, native is pleased to welcome back all major partners for the 2022 season. The team will hit the ground running with a full February slate, headlined with Volusia Speedway Park’s annual DIRTcar Nationals on February 8-12. The five-race program, complete with two All Star Circuit of Champions events and a trio of World of Outlaws programs, will simultaneously activate Zearfoss’ sophomore season with the Greatest Show On Dirt.

Anchored by Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, C&D Rigging Inc, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, Klick Lewis Cars, and Berkebile’s PFC Protection First Class, Zearfoss and his support family will work together to achieve results that will ultimately outdo their 2021 stat sheet, padded by 23 World of Outlaws top-ten finishes, one of which a podium during the season-ending World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte.

Zearfoss finished ninth in the 2021 World of Outlaws driver standings.

“I couldn’t be more proud to be associated with Moose’s LZ, C&D Rigging, Heavy Equipment, Loaders and Parts, Adamsky Trucking, Klick Lewis Cars, and Protection First Class. I’ve always taken pride in doing everything I can to represent our partners at the highest level, and to have everyone return in 2022 proves that we did exactly that. Our partners are more than just sponsors…they are family,” Brock Zearfoss said, a former World of Outlaws winner at Williams Grove Speedway. “We took our lumps last year as an Outlaw rookie, but we are more prepared than ever. Having a year on the road under our belts will serve us a lot of good. We have a strong notebook…we’re ready to go out there and turn some heads, and with a support group like this, the sky’s the limit for this team.”

Although the visit to Volusia will kick-off Zearfoss’ World of Outlaws campaign, the “Jonestown Jet” hopes to shake his program down during All Star competition at Senoia Raceway in Senoia, Georgia, on Friday and Saturday, February 4-5. The Peach State double will award a total winner’s share equaling $18,000; $8,000 on Friday and $10,000 on Saturday.

“We don’t have an exact game plan for events outside of our Outlaw schedule, but we have the All Star races highlighted…we’ll see what the next few weeks bring,” Zearfoss continued. “The guys have been busting their butts in the shop, so wherever we end up, we’ll be ready.”

Our new look includes a separate dining room and a partial roof over our large deck that seats up to 150 people.

OAKS, PA JANUARY 19, 2022. ..The PPB Motorsports Show this weekend, January 21-22, 2022 inside the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center will showcase auto racing in all of its forms and all of its glory.

Masks for show attendees are recommended but no vaccinations are required. Because of Covid-19 there will be no autograph alley in place but there will be many autograph and photo opportunities throughout both days of the show.

Nearly 200 race cars, representing all motorsports, will be on display through out the huge show display area. Many never before seen and vintage race cars will fill the building.

Among the annual show highlights is the recognizing of a speedway and the legacy it carries in the sport.

Penn National Speedway, in Grantville, PA first opened for racing on July 17, 1971 (Jim Keppley won the Modified feature) and just 25 years later, on September 1, 1996, it closed.

Over those 25 years of auto racing, Modified Stock Cars, Sprint Cars, Super Sportsman, and Late Models raced hard on the big half mile. Many of the drivers who competed at Penn National will be on hand to greet Motorsports Show attendees and several of the restored race they raced will be on display.

Galen Koller and the Reading Stock Car Association Historical Society have done an exceptional job organizing the display, interviews and driver and car appearances. Penn National, after all, was fashioned in the image of the Reading Fairgrounds and constructed under the supervision of Lindy Vicari, Reading’s larger-than-life promoter. For the first two years of Penn National’s existence, 1971 and 1972, the track ran on Saturday nights with the Reading Fairgrounds racing Friday and Sunday nights,

Among the Modified drivers who raced at Penn National Race Course who are expected to appear over the weekend are two time Penn National Modified champion (1993, 1994( Kenny Brightbill, Bobby Braxton, Kerry Meitzler, Duane Howard (1990), Kenny Hatt, Lee Brisen, Fred Rahmer (1983), Paul Lotier (1981), Terry Reimert, Rob Breitenstein, and John Kozak.

Winged Sportsman racer Rich Eichelberger and Street Stock racer Joe Vaccaro are all expected to pose for photos and sign autographs.

Vintage race cars that ran at Penn National and that will appear in the track remembrance display include the No. 37 Modified driven by Bruce Young, The No. 74 Modified driven by Bobby Braxton, formerly owned by Frank Wiechecki and now owned by Lowell Sutton, the late Freddy Adam’s No. owned by Tom Orth, and one of Glenn Hyndman’s No. 126 Sportsman Modifieds driven to many wins by Billy Pauch and now owned by Wyatt Jacobus.

Three Sportsman Modifieds driven by the late Ronnie Tobias will form a tribute to the much admired racer. The No. 555 owned by Dianne Tobias, the No. 100 owned by Mabel Fidler and the No. 17 owned by Davey Wenger will all be displayed in pristine condition.

Two other Sportsman Modifieds, a No. 24 driven and still owned by Russ Delp, Jr., and a No. 42, driven by the late Diz Dean (Royce Renfro) and now owned by Mike Grim will also be front and center in the Penn National exhibit.

Other vintage cars in the booth include the Lynn Paxton driven, Boops Aluminum No. 1 410 Sprint owned by Amber Miller and Butch Krieser’s No. 17 Winged Super Sportsman owned by Bill Fenicle.

Past promoters planning to participate in interviews include Debbie Tobias Lotier, who ran the races with her family and took over executive operations in the immediate aftermath of the death of her father Dick Tobias, and Bobby Gerhart, Jr., who ushered in the Richard Carlino promotional era at Penn National.

Several former Penn National staff members will be on hand including Galen Koller, Tom Orth, Earl and Carol Stufflet, Darrell Herman, Fred Gift, Marie Gift, Bev and Lee Brisen, Alan Carter, Cindy Phillips, Jeff Fry, Fred Cutler and Bill Latterman.

Remnants of the half mile track that originally called Penn National Race Course are still visible. The mile horse track that opened on August 30, 1972 still runs live horse racing,

Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course opened February 12, 2008 and on July 13, 2010, table games began operation. Over 2,450 slot machines, ranging in denomination from one penny to $100, and over 56 table games are available for guests.

Georgetown, Del. dirt Modified champion Ryan Watt will debut a brand new Ronnie Robert’s No. 14w in the Bob Hilbert Sportswear booth at the show. Right alongside his car will be a Sportsman Modified that will be driven by his teenage son Logan this season.

Davey Sammons will be returning to his familiar No. 79 this year. He’ll debut a sharp looking Pioneer Pole Buildings sponsored race car in the Hilbert display as well.

At the Pioneer Pole Buildings display there will be several cars including a brand new Billy Pauch No. 1 and a Freddie Rahmer No. 51 410 Sprint car. Lincoln Speedway track champion Freddie Rahmer will have his Pioneer sponsored No. 51 410 winged Sprint Car on display. Jonathan Swanson will have his USAC East Coast No. 17J wingless Sprint Car as part of the exhibit among others. All Pioneer drivers on hand at the show including Sammons will be signing autographs at the Pioneer display on Saturday.

Bob Dauernheim of Flemington, New Jersey will have his Team 608 Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah 300 mph AA/Gas Lakester streamliner at the show. The car is powered by a 582-cubic-inch Chevrolet big-block engine that produces 1,150 horsepower driven by Don Biglow.

Rusty Smith will be displaying two of Frankie Schneider’s most successful race cars at the show. The famous red and white No. 2 coach has been totally restored while Schneider’s “Old Bess” coupe remains in a barn in fine condition.

Lenny Swider will have his Howie Cronce No. 9 Falcon dirt Modified on display at the show. The restoration of this car was well documented in the pages of the Area Auto Racing News and it’s a must see in person.

Look for 360 Sprint car star Davey Franek of Montage, N.J. to have his always beautiful No. 28 at the show.

Aqua-Duck Water Transport is returning as sponsor of the always popular Ms. Motorsports Pageant which will be held on Friday evening this year in the larger D-Hall. Cash prizes will again go to the top three with the winner receiving $1500 and a poster deal. Applications are currently available on-line at the event web-site.

And there is so much more to see and do during the excitement filled two days of show activity.

Show hours will run 2-9 p.m. on Friday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday.

Marysville Raceway 2022 Racing Schedule Revealed    

(Marysville, CA 1/13/22) The highly anticipated 2022 racing schedule for Marysville Raceway was revealed today offering nearly 30 events in the upcoming season. “We continue to be at the forefront of offering an entertaining night of auto racing for the local fans,” said Dennis Gage of Marysville Raceway. “We look forward to hosting a diverse and entertaining season of grass roots dirt track racing.”

The meat and potatoes of the 17 nights will include the winged 360 sprints, IMCA Pepsi Sport Mods, Crate Sprints and Hobby Stocks. “These four divisions will continue to be the mainstay of racing at Marysville,” said Gage.

The season officially kicks off on February 26th with the Loree and Sherm Toller Memorial. This race will feature winged 360 sprints, wingless sprints, and crate sprints. “Loree and Sherm represented everything that was good about racing,” said track announcer Troy Hennig. “They loved being at the track and helping out in whatever capacity they could.

LORAIN COUNTY RACEWAY PARK TO HOST INAUGURAL BOB FREY CLASSIC IN AUGUST

January 18, 2022 – Holly, Michigan - Must See Racing today announced plans for the inaugural Bob Frey Classic that will be held at Lorain County Raceway Park in South Amherst, Ohio on August 6, 2022. The event will honor Frey, who was recently selected for induction into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame. Frey will officially be inducted at a ceremony at Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway in early June.

It is only fitting that the inaugural Bob Frey Classic be hosted at LCRP. Frey grew up in Elyria, which is less than ten miles from the track. Frey’s father Rudy brought him to the track regularly as a youngster to watch races. He eventually began his driving career at the track in 1970 at the age of 20. He started in an entry level stock car class before transitioning to the Sprint Car/ Supermodified class.

The inaugural Bob Frey Classic will feature the Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro and the Maxima Racing Oils Must See Racing Midwest Lights as well as other support classes to be announced.

“The last few weeks I have been so honored and appreciative” explained Frey. “It’s hard to put into words. I’m still observing everything right now. I’m just honored by the whole thing. I’m gonna go back for the induction and now obviously the Bob Frey Classic in August”.

Frey, who now resides in Wickenburg, Arizona, has stayed out of the limelight since his retirement from racing in 1993. Until now, he has attended very few races or made public appearances. Frey admits having the Bob Frey Classic at LCRP is special to him.

Frey is most famous for his time behind the wheel of the yellow #20 Glen Niebel V-6. But Frey found early success with local car owners Ernie Ensign and Urbie Durnwald prior to teaming up with Niebel in 1980. “It is fitting that this race will be at LCRP. I won my second-ever feature at LCRP in 1073. It was one of many there. I started my racing career there in 1970. In those days you had to be 21 or have your parents sign a waiver. I was only 20 and my dad was all for it. My Mom was reluctant to sign that waiver” Frey laughs. “I remember going out there as a six- or seven-year-old kid watching the races with my dad”.

Frey was one of the finest pavement sprint car chafers of his era. He won five Little 500 sprint car races from 1980-1990. He also won 4 Copper World Classic sprint car events on the one-mile Phoenix International Raceway oval (now Phoenix Raceway) from 1981-1987. Frey also made three CART/INDYCAR starts from 1980-1981 including unsuccessful Indianapolis 500 efforts in 1981 and 1982.

Frey, now 71, will serve as the events GRAND MARSHALL participating in a pre-race meet-and greet, special autograph session with race fans and post-race victory lane trophy presentations. MSR has also announced they will donate $500 in Frey’s name to STEADFAST FOR VETERANS, a non-profit organization that provides housing for needy veterans.

“The new Bob Frey Classic will showcase the best winged sprint car drivers from around the country, local hero and racing icon Bob Frey signing autographs for the fans, with the Steadfast Veterans Challenge adding great on track drama and excitement to the Jerry Caryer Memorial 40 lap features for both our Must See Lights and National 410 series. This is going to be a spectacular night of racing and fan entertainment” said MSR’s Jim Hanks.

“I don’t have any family left in the area, but I have a lot of friends there that will probably come out for this. I hope it brings some people out from the old days. I haven’t run there since probably 1984. It’s been a long time. I am humbled and appreciative of having this annual event named after me, and I am willing to do anything that I can do to promote, or support Must See Racing and this event. I’m looking forward to getting back to Ohio and seeing a lot of old friends this August” concluded Frey.

More details on the inaugural Bob Frey Classic will be announced in the coming weeks. Visit www.mustseeracing.com for updates.

 

 

STEELE 125 FRIDAY NIGHT PRELIMINARY ALTERED TO OFFER MORE PRIZE MONEY

January 18, 2022 – Pinellas Park, Florida – Showtime Speedway promoter Robert Yoho has announced that the Friday night preliminary program for the February 25-26 “3rd annual Dave Steele World Non Wing Sprint Car Championship 125” will offer a series of 20-lap “Dash for Cash” events that will pay $1000 to win.

The past two years the Friday night preliminary has featured a 25-lap event that paid $1500 to the winner. This year’s format will see a series of 20-lap events with six cars in each race. Each event will pay $1000-to-win. After qualifying, the field will be split into as many races that can be held with six cars in each race. If there 24 cars for example, then there would be four events with a total of $4,000 paid out in total first place prize money. The rest of the purse for positions 2-6 has not been finalized.

Yoho is altering the Friday night format to give fans more racing and to give teams a chance to earn more prize money. The following night teams will battle it out 125 laps for the first place $5000 prize money.

Although the race is still more than five weeks away, a handful of early entries have been announced. Kody Swanson currently headlines a list of northern drivers that includes Bobby Santos III, Kyle O’Gara, and Kyle Robbins. Swanson has won the past two events and will be back behind the wheel of the Doran Enterprises #77. Santos and O’Gara have each won Friday night preliminary events the past two years. The event annually draws drivers from Florida, Midwest, and the Gulf Coast.

This year’s event will be run the same weekend as the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. The February 27 Grand Prix is the season opening event for the NTT IndyCar Series. Both tracks are only 10 miles apart. It will give fans the opportunity to see two different open wheel events on the same weekend. It will also be the final events of the 2022 Florida Speedweeks.

The final race of the 2021 Showtime Speedway non-wing sprint car series was postponed late in the 2021 season and Yoho vowed to reschedule it early in 2022. That event has now been rescheduled for February 19, one week before the “3rd annual Dave Steele World Non Wing Sprint Car Championship 125”. It will be a 25-lap non-wing sprint car event that will pay $1500-to-win. It will now give teams an extra race in preparation for the following weekends “3rd annual Dave Steele World Non Wing Sprint Car Championship 125” weekend.

Currently, LJ Grimm has a slight point lead over 12-year-old Colton Bettis for the series championship. It is unclear if Grimm will be able to challenge for the championship as he may have to compete in a Southern Sprint Car Shootout Series event the same night.

Tanner Carrick Opens 2022 With Victory at Chili Bowl Midget Nationals

PETERSEN MEDIA: With the 2022 Chili Bowl Midget Nationals officially a thing of the past, Lincoln, CA’s Tanner Carrick can look back and smile on his most impressive Chili Bowl to date. After his first season essentially away from Midgets in 2021, Carrick was able to compete USAC’s West Coast swing and used that to propel himself to a win during Monday night’s Chili Bowl opener, and a fifth place finish in the Championship feature.

“What a Chili Bowl that was,” Tanner Carrick said. “It (Chili Bowl) has always been an event that has had my number despite how good I have felt. In 2021 I made a terrible mistake during my prelim and hit the cone on a restart while battling for a lock in spot and that cost my team dearly, so to come back and grab a win at such a storied event is really special. I have to thank Keith Kunz and his entire team for bringing a fleet of strong cars to Tulsa, OK, that was really special to be a part of.”

Kicking off what turned out to be a very strong week for the stored Keith Kunz Motorsports team on Monday night, Carrick would flex his muscles from the first time he hit the track for hot laps.

Moving into heat race competition, Carrick would put the CVC/K1 backed No. 98 machine up in the third row, needing to pick up passing points to set up the rest of his night.

On the tight confines of the Tulsa Expo Raceway, Carrick would carve his way through the field as he earned a very impressive second place finish at found himself near the top of the point standings as he moved into a qualifier.

Gridding the field from the fifth starting position in his qualifier, Carrick would again move forward just as he did in his heat race. Working his way forward, Carrick would continue to add to his point total as he would garner another second-place finish and find himself third in nightly points heading into the feature event.

Taking the green flag from the third position, Carrick would settle into third as he went to work on the ultra-slick racing surface as he kept pace with the lead duo of Mitchel Moles and Jerry Coons, Jr who raced hard in front of him.

As the track began to take a little rubber around the bottom of the speedway, Carrick would quickly find it as he worked into the second position and began to reel in Moles who had opened up his advantage.

Chasing after Moles, Carrick would capitalize on his miscue and take the race lead on the 21st lap.

Out in front, Carrick would not be denied despite Chili Bowl ace, Tyler Courtney pressuring for the top spot. In the end, Carrick was able to race his way to victory before a post-race incident saw him endure a break issue resulting in him getting on his side in the first set of turns.

No worse for wear, Carrick was quick to pop out of his KKM mount and celebrate with his family and team.

Playing spectator the rest of the week, Carrick would witness his KKM team winning the next three nights as he watched the way the track changed in preparations for Saturday night’s feature event.

Returning to racing action on Saturday for the shuffle to determine his feature event starting position, Carrick would end up finishing sixth.

Lining up in the third row for the 55-lap Chili Bowl feature event, Carrick would slip back to seventh initially as the field worked in a very fast and freshly groomed surface.

Finding himself in a quite a battle with Kyle Larson and KKM teammate, Michael Kofoid, Carrick would slowly work his way back forward as the racing groove widened out.

Amidst of a couple of long green flag runs, Carrick would work his way up to fifth in the race’s closing laps as he capped his Chili Bowl off with a fifth place finish.

“To run fifth out of 380 cars is pretty cool,” Tanner Carrick said. “I have always had fun racing with the Keith Kunz Motorsports team and this past week was another great time. I am thankful to my family and supporters for all the kind words I received all week long, as well as to this team for working so hard for six days.”

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: 2, Wins: 1, Top 5’s: 2, Top 10’s: 2

Hagar Optimistic Following Solid Finish to Chili Bowl Midget Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - TULSA, Okla. (Jan. 18, 2022) - Derek Hagar is eager to return to the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Midget Nationals presented by General Tire.

Hagar and car owner Shawn Wood ended the 36th edition of the famed midget event last weekend by transferring through an F Main and ending three positions shy of a transfer in an E Main.

"It's hard to take a car that you've built off your imagination, not knowing what it really needs," Hagar said. "The last two years Shawn has built me a good car. Last year we finished one spot out of making Saturday's A Main. I know this car is better than what we had last year. I could run the cushion and the bottom and it made speed. I'm really looking forward to next year's event. I wish it was this weekend."

Hagar kicked off this year's Chili Bowl Midget Nationals a week ago Tuesday when he finished where he started - second - in a heat race after an ominous start to the night.

"We had some issues on our qualifying night with the steering gear falling out in hot laps," he said. "We had to rig it up to finish out the night. We had to thrash to get that ready and just about missed the heat race. They built a good car. We had plenty of drive. We were just having trouble keeping the front end on the ground during the heat race and let (Buddy) Kofoid by us."

Hagar rebounded from a spin in a qualifier to finish sixth. A similar situation occurred in the B Main, leaving Hagar two positions away from making the main event.

"We had a decent car, maybe a little on the free side in the qualifier," he said. "I looped it around going into turn three. I passed some cars, but it wasn't good enough to get us locked into the A Main.

"We had a really, really good car, especially in the B Main. I spun out trying to keep from hitting a car that was taking everyone out in the B Main. I came from the back and ran sixth. We were making some good laps. I wished we wouldn't have been in that position because I think we could have raced our way through the field."

Hagar lined up on the inside of the third row in an F Main on Saturday. He gained a trio of positions to finish second, transferring into the back of an E Main.

"We made some adjustments and the race car was really nice," he said. "Shawn and Cody Hays built us a good car. It just took us a minute to get it figured out.

"We passed some really good cars in the F Main. We drove around (J.J.) Yeley and stayed with (Logan) Seavey. That put us in the back of the E Main. We made a gear change and some setup changes. We started squirting up through there and passed a lot of good cars again, just falling a couple spots short."

Hagar's rally from 15th to eighth was three positions out of transferring into a D Main.

QUICK RESULTS -

Jan. 11 - Tulsa Expo Raceway in Tulsa, Okla. - Heat race: 2 (2); Qualifier: 6 (1); B Main: 6 (7).

Jan. 15 - Tulsa Expo Raceway in Tulsa, Okla. - F Main: 2 (5); E Main: 8 (15).

Flud Moves Forward Throughout Chili Bowl Midget Nationals Preliminary Night

Inside Line Promotions - TULSA, Okla. (Jan. 18, 2022) - Frank Flud made progress nearly every time he hit the track throughout the 36th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Midget Nationals presented by General Tire.

Flud, who was driving for Hayward Motorsports, tackled Tulsa Expo Raceway last Friday for his preliminary night. He advanced from seventh to fifth in a heat race before maneuvering from ninth to seventh during a qualifier.

"We started toward the back of our heat race, which was the first one of the night so it was tough to move around," he said. "In the qualifier we were still trying to feel each other out between me and the team. It was in the B Main when we started to get rolling."

Flud gained one position in the consolation race to finish fourth, which earned the final transfer position into the main event.

"Early in the feature I felt like we could get a top 10," he said. "We got up to 13th and had a caution. On the restart I jumped the cushion and lost several positions. If it wasn't for my mistake we'd have been set up a lot better on Saturday."

Flud rebounded from the mid-race miscue to garner an 18th-place finish. That lined him up on the outside of the fourth row in a D Main during Saturday's finale.

"Unfortunately, we had a battery problem so we didn't get to run," he said. "I want to thank everyone at Hayward Motorsports for the opportunity. We moved forward in each race other than the D Main that we were unable to start on Saturday so that's a positive."

Flud plans to kick off the 2022 racing season Feb. 18-19 at Superbowl Speedway in Greenville, Texas, with the Lucas Oil National Open Wheel 600 Series presented by Hi-Plains Building Division.

Chase Johnson Ties Career-Best Chili Bowl Midget Nationals Preliminary Night Result Before Making Main Event

Inside Line Promotions - TULSA, Okla. (Jan. 18, 2022) - Chase Johnson achieved his goals last week behind the wheel of a CB Industries race car during the 36th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Midget Nationals presented by General Tire.

Johnson, who was making his debut with the team, tied a career-best preliminary result with a third-place showing before he made his third career A Main during the marquee midget event at Tulsa Expo Raceway.

"I was pretty happy with it," he said. "I wish we had a better result on Saturday, but to run third in our prelim night and make Saturday's A Main was great. I try not to have expectations. You just have how you want to do or think you can do. Going in there the main goal is to make the show and then once you make the show you can try to make more happen after that."

Johnson kicked off the event a week ago Monday when he won a heat race from third, advanced from fourth to second in a qualifier and maneuvered from sixth to third place in the feature.

"The prelim night was good," he said. "I felt really comfortable and confident right out of the box. I think that showed with how we did, getting the heat race win. In the qualifier I felt we had a good shot to win and we ran second. That put us in a great starting spot come feature-time. I was able to move forward and stay out of trouble.

"We were bouncing around in a couple of positions. We got to third and then the rubber came in. It would have been nice to see if we had something to win the prelim or lock in, but a podium is still great and put us in a great position come Saturday."

Johnson finished fifth in a B Main on Saturday to transfer into the 55-lap feature.

"The B Main was all right," he said. "We did what we needed to do to transfer. That was the main goal. It wasn't to set the world on fire; it was making sure we didn't have any mistakes and moved on to run the big show.

"Come feature-time we weren't as good as we were hoping and missed it just a little on the setup. I was too tight starting the race with that much moisture they had in the track. We were good in the end, but by that time we had been shuffled to the back and the positions were settled in."

Johnson was credited with a 23rd-place result.

"I want to thank Chad and the team at CB Industries for the opportunity," he said. "I had a great time and was pleased with our success."

QUICK RESULTS -

Jan. 10 - Tulsa Expo Raceway in Tulsa, Okla. - Heat race: 1 (3); Qualifier: 2 (4); Feature: 3 (6).

Jan. 15 - Tulsa Expo Raceway in Tulsa, Okla. - B Main: 5 (2); Feature: 23 (19).

PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY PROMOTER DON KAZARIAN WINS THE PROMOTER OF THE YEAR AWARD!

(Perris, CA, January 16, 2022) For the third time in seven seasons, Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian was voted “Non-Wing Promoter of the Year” in the annual Sprint Car Hall of Fame media poll. Kazarian, who won the same award in 2014 and 2015, shared this year’s honor after finishing in a tie with Matt Wood, who promoted USAC races at Huset’s Speedway in South Dakota and Northern California’s Placerville Speedway in 2021.

PAS 11-11-17=Coty GM=2292-3 =c=.jpg
Shown here with Cory Kruseman in 2017, Don Kazarian was just named Promoter of the Year for the third time in seven years.

This year’s award came after the track’s historic 25th anniversary season. After constructing the showcase racing facility in 1996, the Kazarian family is the only promoter the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval has ever known.

“Thank you very much to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and to the media members who voted,” Kazarian said. “It is a big honor to win this award. However, it is not just about the promoter. It takes a team of hard workers, and we are extremely fortunate to have had the same core of employees at The PAS for a lot of years. It also takes a lot of help from sponsors and teams. Without them, we could not put on shows. We also have a wonderful group of fans. I should call the fans “family and friends.” So many of them have been with us for an exceptionally long time. Everyone mentioned has played a significant role in the track winning this award and I want to thank all of them.”

The award comes after what was supposed to be the track’s 25th anniversary year of racing in 2020. However, that season was cut short after one race in March due to Covid. Things did not look much better at the start of the 2021 campaign as Covid intervened again and delayed the season opener by more than a month.

“Winning this award after what we went through in 2020 is extra special,” the past champion sprint car owner stated. “Not only us, but most tracks around the country had no idea how things would work out, how long everyone would be shut down, or if we would survive. Then we were shut down again for the start of the 2021 campaign. It was very scary, but once we got going, we had a great season.”

As always, Kazarian and the staff have stayed busy since the end of the 2021 campaign on November 20th. The track is poised and ready to open its 26th season of racing on March 5th when LKQ Pick Your Part will Present Night of Destruction. From that date through November 12th, there will be 27 nights of action. As usual sprint cars will lead the way with 10 dates starting with the annual “SoCal Showdown” featuring the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink and Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars. The PAS Senior and Young Gun Sprint Cars along with the Lucas Oil POWRi Southwest Lightning Sprints will also be in action at the PAS this year. The open-wheel season will conclude with three great nights of high-level competition in the 26th Annual Heimark/Anheuser Busch Budweiser Oval Nationals in November.

In addition to sprint cars, the PASSCAR Stock Car Series and Nights of Destruction will have full schedules in 2022. The entire schedule is printed below.

Two weeks ago, Kazarian was a guest on “The Racer Radio Show” and he discussed the 2022 schedule with host Dave Stall. For those who missed the show, you can listen to the replay at the following link http://www.perrisautospeedway.com/radio22/RACERRADIO220102.mp3

The Mighty Quinn rises to the Challenge
SA14 Brendan Quinn was a last minute nomination for the Mainline Dynolog Dynamometers All Star
Challenge. Quinn had made the trek up north to run the QLD Speedweek deal, with a couple of
washouts and not having results he had hoped he decided to try and secure an engine and run the
Challenge. Managing to lease an engine from SA based series regular Jarman Dalitz enabled him to
run. “Quinny used to run a lot with us back in the day and it was fantastic to see him back and his
efforts rewarded. I told him Saturday night it was like a fairy-tale ending for him.” Mandy Searle tells
us.
With a full field of 42 cars parked in the pits Hot Laps/Time trials got under way ahead of schedule.
Unfortunately for the defending Aussie champ Brett Milburn engine issues sidelined his night from
the start. Heavy hitters JMac, Daniel Pestka lined up on the front row with Quinn, Vogels, Lines &
Hickman behind. Pestka got the start and held the lead for 28 of the 35 lap race. Johnny V was first
to bring out the Reds tagging the wall under the judges box and up and over. At the restart V45
Steven Lines pushed and bounced up into the wall in Turn 2 sustaining enough damage to finish his
night. J Mac running 2nd was almost in the wall early in the race but incredibly saved it but with front
end damage had to pull in. V40 Rusty Hickman now in 2nd incurred front end damage ending up
infield with front end damage. On the same lap Pestka retired to the infield after tagging the wall
and breaking a driveline. Drivers parked almost beside each other and both climbed out showing
obvious disappointment. V34 Brenten Farrer had worked his way up to 3rd after starting in P10 but
broke a Jacobs ladder; the car had a moment in turn 4 nearly losing it but managed to keep it going
but lost precious positions. The battle was then on for the top 3 with Quinn in the lead V11 Grant
Anderson & V60 Jordyn Charge battling out 2nd and 3rd for the last 3 laps. V6 Cam Waters had a very
impressive drive into 4th after transferring from the B and in doing so also winning the TEH Hard
Charger Award.
Young hard charger D26 Todd Moule kicked the night off well timing 6th overall but while leading his
first heat the engine expired and ended his night. V43 Corey Sandow another to have engine issues
at the start of the night not allowing him to time and therefore start of the back most of the night.
The team worked hard and managed to get things sorted. V76 Adam Cullinger was another plagued
with problems all night. VA91 Dan Scott got off to a good start timing 14th out of 42 but was another
with engine issues in heat 1 and out for the night.
V44 Tim Van Ginneken won the Maxi’s Keep on Fighting Award after having a heavy roll in the
middle of the back straight in his first heat. Elbows up for the team, they rebuilt but again ended up
against the wall and didn’t finish his 2nd heat. Not giving in they got the car ready for the C but
missed the B by one place with only 4 going into the B from the C.
“Well that’s it for another year. What a fantastic night – a record car count, record prize money and
all round exciting night of racing. Thanks to all our teams and to Simpson Speedway. We all worked
our butts of and got the show done early. The track was mint and I think that between all of us we
lifted the event to the next level. Roll on next year.” Searle says.
Heat race wins went to – John Vogels, David Donegan, Daniel Pestka, Ryan Davis, Steven Caruso,
Brendan Quinn, Steven Lines, and James McFadden

Donny Schatz highlights 36th Annual Chili Bowl with Saturday C-Main start


Dates: Monday through Saturday, January 10-15
Event: 36th Annual Chili Bowl Nationals
Series: Open Midget Event
Track: Tulsa Expo Raceway (Tulsa, Oklahoma)
Donny Schatz Finishes:
Tuesday Preliminary: A-Main | 15th (20th)
Saturday Finale: C-Main #1 | 19th (19th)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (January 17, 2022) - Ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz, put together a respectable campaign during the 36th running of the annual Chili Bowl Nationals, not only ending the six-day blockbuster in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with a Saturday night C-Main start, but activating his week with a preliminary A-Main start on Tuesday. Nearly 400 competitors made the call for Saturday’s Chili Bowl Nationals finale spread across 31 main events ranging from a pair of P-Mains to the 55-lap championship.

Powering Mark Cooper’s Spike Chassis, Sage Fruit, Curb Records, Carquest, Advance Auto Parts, Absolute Automation and Security, DKW Transport, No. 15 entry, Schatz finished 15th in Tuesday’s preliminary main event, driving ahead five spots after starting on the outside of row ten.

Despite finishing second in his preliminary heat race, followed by a third-place finish in his respective qualifier, Schatz did not accumulate enough passing points to automatically lock himself into the evening’s feature. An eventual runner-up finish in the Tuesday night B-Main led to the aforementioned 15th-place score.

With all preliminary results calculated, Schatz found himself locked into one of two Saturday night D-Mains with only the top-five transferring into the evening’s C-Mains. The Fargo, North Dakota, native maintained his place within the top-five after starting third and earned the right to advance into the first C-Main. Although “running the alphabet” was the overall goal, Schatz’ Chili Bowl Nationals concluded in the C, finishing 19th after starting in the exact same position.

"It was a fun week in Tulsa. It's a special event that attracts talent from all levels of motorsports. It's fun to be a part of a tradition like that," Schatz said.

By Mike Leone

(January 16, 2022) -


(Edinburg, PA)…While the 2022 racing season is only a few months away, Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Racing Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants Directors Vicki Emig and Mike Leone put a final wrap on the 2021 racing season with the annual awards banquet and dinner on Saturday night at the Gatherings Banquet & Event Center. A record number of attendees filled the beautiful banquet hall as a record $166,000+ in cash was distributed to RUSH Late Model, Sprint Car, Sportsman Modified, Pro Mod, Stock Car, and Kart racers. Drivers from the ages of 5 to 66 years of age were recognized. All told well over $315,000 in point fund monies and useful product contingencies were distributed to RUSH racers throughout the 2021 season.

The Pace Performance RUSH Late Models had events at 22 different speedways in 2022 with over 300 different racers participating in either a weekly-sanctioned and/or tour events. The non-wing Pace Performance RUSH Sprint Cars completed year number four with growing car counts and more participation. Year eight for the Pace Performance Sportsman Modified season continued to feature the highest weekly car counts of any Modified division in the region. The Pace Performance RUSH Pro Mods wrapped up year number six already and had their highest car count averages and broke their record high car count twice. The Pace Performance RUSH Stock Cars completed their inaugural season with weekly events at Dog Hollow, Stateline, and Eriez Speedways. And the second year for the RUSH Karting Series saw growing car counts for all four classes.

Congrats to the following 2021 RUSH Champions: Kyle Hardy (Late Model Tour & Weekly), Kassidy Kamicker (Late Model "Futures Cup"), Khole Wanzer (Late Model "Wheelman"), Chad Ruhlman (Sprint Car Weekly), Brian Cressley (Sprint Car "Futures Cup"), Chas Wolbert (Sportsman Mod Weekly), Tony Tatgenhorst (Sportsman Mod Tour), Brandon Ritchey (Sportsman Mod "Route 7 Rumble"), Ben Easler (Sportsman Mod "Futures Cup"), Dennis Lunger, Jr. (Pro Mod Weekly), Ian Golier (Pro Mod "Futures Cup"), Jeremy Zufall (Stock Car Weekly), Mikael Beaver (Stock Car "Futures Cup), Jay Groves (Adult Kart), Cody Rickard (Jr-2 Kart), Ryan Chase (Jr-1 Kart), and Bexley Smith (Amateur Kart).

All of the champions received their point fund monies, laser etched championship marble awards, large championship checks thanks to Ontime Body & Graphic, and embroidered RUSH championship jackets. Also, all 14 Late Model "Track Pack" Champions received $1,000 as each RUSH weekly-sanctioned track's top six member racers split $2,500.

In his first year of RUSH, Kyle Hardy left the awards banquet with a record $17,000! The Stephens City, Virginia ace won eight features in route the $12,000 Flynn's Tire/Born2Run Touring Series Championship, while ending Jeremy Wonderling's run of three straight titles. Hardy added another 11 Weekly Series victories to capture the $5,000 National Weekly Series crown by just one-point over 2020 champion, Jeremy Wonderling. All told, Hardy finished on the podium in 29 of the 32 races he competed in!

Second year RUSH racer, Kassidy Kamicker, became the first female "Futures Cup" Champion in the history RUSH. The 18-year-old Aliquippa, Pa. driver also finished second in the "Track Pack" points at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway and left the banquet with $1,000 in point fund monies one year after winning the "Wheelman" Bonus Event Challenge Series Championship and a 10th in the Touring Series points.

Speaking of the "Wheelman" Bonus Event Challenge Series, Khole Wanzer became the 13th different champion in 14 years! The Waterford, Pa. driver won $200 non-qualifier events at both Eriez and Stateline Speedways, his first career checkered flags, in route to the $300 title.

For the third time in four years, Chad Ruhlman earned the $5,000 RUSH Sprint Car Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Championship. After winning the first two championships in his own #87R, Chad took 2020 off to focus on his son Kevin's RUSH Sprint Car exploits. The Erie, Pa. driver returned to RUSH Sprint Car racing in 2021; however, this time driving the #68 for longtime car owner Tim Engles- a former "410" Sprint Car racer in 1980s. Ruhlman won nine times upping his all-time career win total to 34, and led the division with 20 top 5s. Ruhlman ended up tying Gale Ruth, Jr., who also won nine features, for the title, but won the tiebreaker. Ruhlman was also the 2014 RUSH Late Model National Weekly Series Champion.

After finishing second in the 2020 RUSH Sprint Car "Futures Cup" points to Nolan Groves, 16-year-old Brian Cressley did one position better to capture the 2021 crown. Cressley recorded eight top 10s including a career best fifth and his first heat race win in the Tri-City Raceway Park finale.

For the second straight year, Chas Wolbert nailed down the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Sportsman Modified Championship. The Warren, Ohio racer won 13 times and finished outside the podium on only three occasions. Wolbert upped his all-time division leading win total to 46 and earned a record $3,500 for the title. Wolbert announced he'll be moving up to the Big-Block Modifieds in 2022.

Tony Tatgenhorst used consistency to win his first championship. The Columbiana, Ohio driver failed to finish worse than fourth in any of the RUSH Sportsman Modified Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Touring Series events. Tatgenhorst outgained Wolbert by 12 points for the $800 championship. It was an emotional first title for Tatgenhorst, whose father passed away three days following the Lernerville finale.

Another driver using consistency to win a championship was Brandon Ritchey. The Seneca, Pa. racer didn't win a feature event, but failed to finish worse than 11th in any of the Raceway 7 and Sharon Speedway RUSH Sportsman Modified races as he earned the $1,000 "Route 7 Rumble" Series Championship presented by Wedge Motorsports. Ritchey had seven top 5 finishes in the Series of events including a season best third on June 11 at Raceway 7, where he also won the track title.

Ben Easler became the fourth different RUSH Sportsman Modified Champion in 2021. The Linesville, Pa. driver, who didn't turn 15 until September 1, captured the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "Futures Cup" Championship. Easler finished fourth in his big car debut at Sharon, was third two races later, and then won his first career race at Raceway 7 just days later. A football injury cut his season one-month short, but still finished fourth in the Hovis Weekly Series Championship.

Former RUSH Late Model competitor, Dennis Lunger, Jr., captured an unprecedented fifth straight RUSH title doing it in the Pace Performance Pro Mods! The 53-year-old Albion, Pa. driver won seven times at Stateline, four in five starts at McKean, and twice at Bradford. He had 20 top 5s in 23 starts for the $3,500 championship. Lunger said he'll be back in 2022 to try and win six titles in a row.

Fifteen-year-old rookie Ian DeGolier was the RUSH Pro Mod "Futures Cup" Champion. The Bradford, Pa. driver had 10 top 10s in 17 starts at Bradford and McKean. DeGolier had a career best sixth on June 6 at Bradford where he also finished sixth in track points.

Former RUSH Sportsman Modified racer, Jeremy Zufall, returned to the RUSH ranks in 2021 competing in the new Pace Performance RUSH Stock Car division. The Mt. Pleasant, Pa. resident won eight times at Dog Hollow and made the long trip up to Eriez Speedway on May 30 and picked up the victory. Zufall earned $2,000 for the inaugural championship.

Sixteen-year-old Mini Stock graduate, Mikael Beaver, a fourth generation racer, not only finished second in the RUSH Stock Weekly Series points, but also picked up the "Futures Cup" crown. The Sugar Grove, Pa. driver won seven times at Eriez and three at Stateline!

The highlight of the banquet was the special awards ceremony. Ryan Frazee and his family were awarded the prestigious Legacy Award. The 18-year-old Addison, Pa. driver completed his third year on the RUSH Late Model Tour, but did it this year without his father Rick, who passed away just three weeks before the season started. Ryan also drove the toter and trailer to the races and helped his mom Jamie run their trucking business. Ryan, who is assisted on his race car by his sisters Julie and Jenna, has finished in the top six in Tour points each of the last three years. All four accepted their award.

Two Majestic Awards were doled out. The first went to longtime official and 20-year friend Bill Bauer. Bauer formerly worked at Mercer Raceway Park when Emig was the owner driving two hours every week from Somerset, Pa. Over the years, Bauer's duties with RUSH has included lining up cars, being the pit steward, doing safety inspections, traveling to weekly events to assist in tech, working trade shows, and more. This year however, Bauer continued to work with RUSH and manage Dog Hollow Speedway despite living in Florence, Kentucky as he'd make 700-mile roundtrips weekly. Bauer will continue those roles in 2022.

The second Majestic was awarded to Kevin Kaserman. The 40-year-old fulfilled his dream to run a Sprint Car debuting in the RUSH non-wing division. Kaserman, who lives 40 miles east of Cleveland, Ohio in Middlefield hooks up with his parents in Massillon, which is nearly an hour and a half south before heading east to the races. And what was most impressive was his mother Sue has been confined to a wheelchair and walker for the last three decades due to rheumatoid arthritis. Kevin and his father Rick make sure Sue is settled into the grandstands at each event.

Chelsie Kriegisch was presented with the Outstanding Achievement Award. Kriegisch won her third career RUSH Sportsman Modified feature in 2021, which was all-time race #200 in the division. The victory propelled Kriegisch to the Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway track championship as she became the first female track champion in the history of RUSH. Kriegisch is still the only female winner in the 50+ year storied history of Expo Speedway, and the only female driver to win a RUSH Tour event in history! The 27-year-old from Ellwood City, PA has now run 153 RUSH Sportsman Modified races, which is most in the history of the division, and is one of only two drivers to compete all eight years in the division.

Kyle Hardy captured the annual Miles Traveled Award. Hardy completed his first season of RUSH by running the entire Late Model Touring Series despite living in Linden, Virginia. Hardy had never seen several of the tracks on the Tour and adapted well. All told, Hardy won 32 features with 18 of them RUSH-sanctioned in 2021, which came in four different cars amongst Super Late Models, RUSH Late Models, and Limited Late Models.

RUSH Series announcer, Brian Spaid, emceed the affair and also previewed the upcoming 2022 season, which will be a historic season. The Flynn's Tire RUSH Late Model Touring Series point fund will see another 25% increase with $15,000 going to the champion as all events will pay a minimum of $3,000 to-win. Lernerville Speedway General Manager, Mike Lysakowski, photographed the event and also previewed the $20,000 to-win "Bill Emig Memorial" for the RUSH Late Model Tour and detailed RUSH's presence at the Sarver, Pa. oval.

The RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will race weekly at Sharon, bi-weekly at Raceway 7 in addition to other events throughout the region. The RUSH Sprint Cars will see a similar schedule with additional higher paying races at Knox Raceway. The RUSH Pro Mods will be back weekly at Stateline and Bradford Speedways along with events at McKean County Raceway and Genesee Speedway. The second year for the RUSH Stock Cars will again see weekly action at Dog Hollow, Stateline, and Eriez Speedways.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIESE 2022

NAPA AUTO PARTS, PIONEER POLE BUILDINGS, LEVAN MACHINE & TRUCK EQUIPMENT RETURN AS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES SPONSORS FOR 2022, OPENER SET FOR SUNDAY, MAY 29

BECHTELSVILLE, PA January 14, 2022 . . . . . The thirty-third season of Thunder on the Hill will return to the Grandview Speedway in 2022 proudly supported by long time sponsors NAPA Auto Parts, the series lead sponsor and, associate series sponsors Pioneer Pole Buildings and Levan Machine & Truck Equipment.

The popular Thunder on the Hill Series opener is set for Sunday, May 29 featuring the Triple Roaring 20’s for Big Block/358 Modifieds sharing the program in a first time visit by the SpeedSTRs as part of the Thunder Series. Once again, Bob Greene and Pioneer Pole Buildings will post a $5,000 bonus to any driver that sweeps the triple 20’s and a $1,000 bonus to a driver who wins two of the triple 20’s.

The Thunder Series continues on Tuesday, June 14 with the Jesse Hockett Classic USAC Non-Wing Sprint National Tour plus the 358 Modifieds Tri-Track Series event.

Tuesday, June 28 will showcase the Red Robin PA 410 Sprint Speed Week Greg Hodnett Cup paying $10,000 to win joined by the 358 Modifieds. This event pays tribute to remembering Greg Hodnett, one of the respected sprint car drivers of all times and a former Thunder on the Hill Sprint Champion.

The Thunder Series returns to “the hill” on Tuesday, August 2 with the Balls to the Wall 50 lap (invert race) for 358 modifieds Tri-Track Series joined by the popular sportsman. This event offers a unique format for the modifieds. After a series of qualifying, the top twelve drivers will take part in a revenge redraw to determine the starting line-up. This invert race will offer a bonus to the top ten drivers on lap 30 and lap 40 earning an additional payoff of $1,500 to the leader, $400 for second, $200 for third, $100 for fourth with $50 going to fifth through tenth. The twist is, the yellow flag will slow the field on lap 30 and lap 40 and the top four cars will invert. All other drivers hold their positions. The event will go with double-file restarts up to lap 48.

With the base purse being $5,000 to win, leading laps 30 and 40 would earn an extra $3,000 making it an eye catching $8,000 to win. But wait, it gets better. If a driver does the sweep of leading lap 30, 40 and 50, with thanks to Pioneer Pole Buildings, an additional $5,000 will go to the winner making it a $13,000 payday. This will be a “Balls to the Wall” event that will guarantee $1,000 for tenth and $500 just to start the feature event.

What is the theory around the invert race? This format will add another level of excitement for race fans, especially in the closing laps of the 50 lap feature. The added payoff that can be earned by running in the top ten is a bonus. Another interesting aspect is, a driver leads lap 30 or lap 40 and late in the race he drops out with mechanical issue, he still earns $1,500 plus the money posted for the position he finished.

The idea of this event is really to spice up a special modified event. History has been, special events are usually driven by extended distances and increased payoff. This offers the same, plus the twist of an invert. This is not an event you would do weekly, just something different that will bring drivers up on their wheel and fans to edge of their seat.

Grandview Speedway and Thunder on the Hill is excited to be part of the return of the Tri-Track Series, working with both BAPS Motor Speedway and Big Diamond Raceway for six events in 2022. We look to expand this 358 Spec Motor Series going forward. In additional, all modified events that are part of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series in 2022 will also be NASCAR point races.

We greatly appreciate the support from our sponsors who work by our side to make our events exciting for the fans and competitors.

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY INCREASES PURSE FOR 2022 KNOXVILLE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES

MORE THAN $130,000 INCREASE ACROSS THREE CLASSES As the “Sprint Car Capital of the World” prepares for its 69th season of racing, Knoxville Raceway officials and the Marion County Fair Association have announced an increased purse structure for all Knoxville Championship Series events. The highest-paying, weekly track championship series will increase its purse by more than $100,000 in 2022.

Additionally, Weiler Night with the FloRacing All-Star Circuit of Champions on Saturday, July 30, will now pay $8,000 to the winner, an increase of $1,000 over the 2021 event. The August 7th Capitani Classic presented by Great Southern Bank will also increase from $8,000-to-win to a $9,000 payout in 2022.

“We’re aware of the rising costs for our weekly racers at Knoxville, mostly from factors that are beyond anyone’s control,” said John McCoy, Knoxville Raceway Race Director. “The Knoxville Raceway Race Committee and Marion County Fair Association wanted to do what we could to help alleviate that pressure from our weekly show competitors, who are the backbone of our racing program. Our goal was to raise the purse for our drivers without raising our weekly ticket costs for our fans. With everyone’s cooperation we were able to do just that.”

The weekly Knoxville Championship Series will now pay $5,000-to-win for all 13 410ci events this season and $625 to start. The 360ci class will pay $2,000 to win and $325 to-start. Pro Sprint feature events will pay $650 to win and $125 to start. This is an overall increase of more than $134,000 across all three classes.

For the first time, Knoxville Raceway will also award “perfect attendance” bonuses at the May 28th and August 27th events, as well as at the Capitani Classic presented by Great Southern Bank.

On top of the abundant purse structure, Knoxville Raceway will also distribute more than $166,000 in cash and $110,000 in prizes across the three classes in final 2022 championship point standings. The 410 track champion will again receive $20,000 in 2022, while the 360 class champion and Pro Sprint class champion will receive $8,000 and $1,000, respectively.

The 61st NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s on August 10-13 will again offer the highest-paying purse in all of sprint car racing with more than $1 million paid out over the four-day event.

The 69th Knoxville Championship Series season will begin with the Pella Motors/Kraig Ford Season Opener on Saturday, April 16. The 410 class has 17 total points-paying events, while the 360 and Pro Sprint classes each have 15.

Tickets for the Knoxville Championship Series weekly races are available at the ticket office on the day of the event. Tickets for the NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s and the June 18 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race are now available to purchase online or by calling the ticket office at 641-842-5431.

 

 

ERIC RUDOLPH RETURNS TO TQ RACING TO CONTEND FOR Atlantic City BOARDWALK HALL IN NAPA KNOW HOW CLASSIC JANUARY 28-29

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ. JANUARY 13, 2022 . . . The Indoor Auto Racing Series TQ Midget one-two punch of Ryan Flores and Andy Jankowiak may have dominated the 2022 opener in Allentown, PA on January 8, but as the Series heads for Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ on January 28-29 for NAPA KNOW HOW weekend, they’ll have to contend with Erick Rudolph.

Rudolph, who was missing in action in Allentown, is a three time Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall Gamblers’ Classic winner (2012, 2015, 2017).  Each of Rudolph’s wins have come with the potent Mark Lafler-built and owned No. 22.

“Looking forward to being there, and grateful to be Mark’s driver for all these years,” Rudolph said.

“It will good to be back in Atlantic City where Mark and I have always had good runs.”

Rudolph said the No. 22 car is essentially the same one he raced to his last Indoor Auto Racing Series win in Atlantic City, in 2017. The upstate New Yorker said he always enjoys racing in Boardwalk Hall and is looking forward to his return after a one year Covid-19 cancellation last year.

When Rudolph and Lafler first teamed for the Indoor Auto Racing Series, it was essentially another step forward together for the driver and owner.

“I was interested in the Indoor Series because I had raced Midgets before I got into Stock Cars, starting when I was 13 years old. Midgets were my transition from go-karts to Stock Cars. I had known Mark from back when I ran Midgets,” Rudolph shared.

“So when I started driving his TQ Midgets indoors, it wasn’t something I was totally unfamiliar with. For the whole time I’ve run indoors, it has always been with Mark.”

Flores, a New Jersey native now living in North Carolina, won over Jankowiak in the Indoor series showdown opener in Allentown PA. Both are past NAPA KNOW HOW Gamblers Classic winners, Flores in 2018 and Jankowiak in 2019 and 2020.

“Indoor Auto Racing is a spectacle in itself, and when the racing is as tightly contested as it was in Allentown last week, the fans had to be leaving eager for more,” said Series promoter Len Sammons.

And they’ll get more in Atlantic City. Along with the great nightlife and famed restaurants that make the trip to south jersey special, the competition level in the TQ Midget division has never been higher.

Three-time Atlantic City winner (2013, 2014, 2015) Anthony Sesely flexed his muscle at the opener. The fan favorite from Matawan, NJ won the Dash and led the early laps of the feature before being involved in a mishap with Billy Pauch Jr. He rallied back to finish tenth.

Pauch, a winner in one of three Friday night Triple 20s in Allentown was making his first start in a Jason Simmons Racing No. 98. Because his sister is being married on Saturday night of AC weekend, he won’t be competing but the car will be a contender with a yet to be named top driving star behind the wheel.

Versatile Max McLaughlin of Mooresville, NC is also expected to be a contender in Atlantic City. In his first ever TQ start in Allentown driving for Frankie Caparra, McLaughlin struggled to find the set-up, but rallied on Saturday to qualify for the A-Main against a stout field of 43 competitors.

Few excited race fans more than the late Ted Christopher, a four-time Atlantic City winner. His nephew, Mike Christopher Jr. of Wolcott, CT made his TQ Midget debut in Allentown in a Trey Hoddick TQ Midget.

Mike Christopher has already made a name for himself at the Stafford Motor Speedway in SK Modified competition, a track with his uncle is the all-time winningest driver. He’d like nothing more to go back to victory lane in Atlantic City, where as a young boy he joined his uncle in post-race celebrations!

Scott Kreuetter, the senior team member of the Hoddick team, showed how much speed they have finishing a solid fifth in Allentown. Kyle Hutchinson, who now drives the Donny Preece No. 13 that TC made famous in Indoor Racing, is also expected to be in the hunt.

Another set of teammates, veteran Matt Janisch of Nazareth, PA and young gun Briggs Danner are expected to contend for a first Atlantic City win. Janisch charged through the field to finish third at Allentown. Danner, of Allentown, was in contention until a late race accident sent him to the rear of the field.

ATQMRA outdoor series champion Joey Bailey of Monroe Township, N.J. is expected to be a challenger at the front of the field as well in Lenny Boyd’s iconic yellow No.1.

Others to keep an eye on are three Catalano brothers from Ontario, N.Y. Older brother Tommy, a regular on the NASCAR Modified Tour, led the early laps of the Allentown feature.

Tim Buckwalter and Matt Roselli showed speed while winning the other two Triple 20 races in Allentown. Another PA driver, Pat Bealer, was named the Hard Charger of the race after advancing 18 spots in Saturday’s feature to finish sixth.

Racing at the NAPA KNOW HOW Weekend will again include triple 20 qualifiers for the headline TQ Midgets on Friday night followed the 40 lap Gambler’s Classic on Saturday.

The wild and crazy Slingshots and darty Champ Karts will make up the tripleheader programs which includes qualifying races for each division each day.

Good tickets for the Atlantic City races are on sale now in a range of prices through Ticketmaster, the Boardwalk Hall Box Office or the Area Auto Racing News office at 609-888-3618 weekdays from 10 am to 4 pm. Further information on the event including special hotel rates are available at indoorracing.com.

For everyone’s safety, fans will be required to wear a mask when they enter Boardwalk Hall and when they are walking around the building. They will not be required to wear a mask when in their seat or when they are eating or drinking.

Knoxville, IA, January 13, 2022 – Blake Hahn, of Sapulpa, Oklahoma was voted the 2021 “Driver of the Year” by the North American 360 Sprint Car Poll voting panel of media members, promoters, sanctioning officials and manufacturers assembled by the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum. It is a first-time honor for Hahn, who was champion of the American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) in 2021. Among Hahn’s seven wins with the series was the Short Track Nationals at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock in October. Hahn received eight of the fifteen first place votes cast. Others receiving first place votes included five-time 360 “Driver of the Year” Sam Hafertepe Jr. (2) of Sunnyvale, Texas, Skagit Dirt Cup winner Dominic Scelzi of Fresno, California, Selinsgrove champ Mark Smith of Sunbury, Pennsylvania, California’s Justin Sanders of Aromas, California, USCS titlist Danny Smith of Chillicothe, Ohio and Chase Randall of Waco, Texas.

JMac returns for the Challenge

Last year’s winner of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Challenge James McFadden is returning to defend his title. The Monte Motorsport team locked a 360 engine in early to ensure they didn’t miss out and attempt to take out back to back wins and in doing so pick up a cool $15K for the effort. McFadden returned to Simpson after 10 years last year and had nothing but accolades for the venue and the event. The Monte Motorsport WA17 has been strong over the past few weeks travelling between SA, Victoria and QLD collecting wins along the way racing with the countries best. “It is an honour to have James return to compete with us; he is almost a local around the area and certainly a crowd favourite. We love stepping up the level of competition for our guys and watch them rise to the occasion; it brings out the best in them. We also increased the strength of our trophies after James seemed to dismantle it last year and it shouldn’t happen again whoever wins it.” said a smiling Mandy Searle. Make sure you don’t miss the action as this race is renowned for being one of the best in the country. Heytesbury Stockfeeds Simpson Speedway, Saturday night January 15th.

 

SPRINT CARS, SPRINT CARS AND MORE SPRINT CARS AT BRIDGEPORT MOTORSPORTS PARK
January 12, 2022

Bridgeport, NJ – Stock car racing has always been the headliner of New Jersey’s Bridgeport Speedway. In addition to Modifieds, 602 Crate Sportsman and Street Stocks, the Bridgeport Motorsports Park will feature more than twenty sprint car events throughout the 2022 season.

Doug and Brittany Rose have put together an action-packed schedule for the 2022 season and sprint cars – both winged and wingless will play a major role.

“From the time we were building the track, we knew we wanted Sprint Car races,” Doug Rose explains. “Our Northeast fans love their Modifieds and they love their Sprint Cars but we realize that in order to produce Sprint Car races, you have to have a track that is conducive to Sprint Car racing.” It didn’t take long for Rose to realize that his newly configured high banked four-tenth mile track would produce great racing.

The 2021 season saw Rose move ahead with his plan. “We got more aggressive with the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series (MASS) and put together our “Invasion of the Posse” event. Our World of Outlaws show was basically a sell-out, the PA Posse event went very well and MASS put on great events week after week,” Rose continued. As the 2021 season came to an end, Rose approached Eddy and Erika Wagner of MASS, Ryan Stillwaggon of the United Racing Club (URC) and Curt Michael of USAC East Coast Wingless Sprints about promoting more events in 2022. “They were all great to work with. They made it easy for me to blend together a great schedule and then we landed our All-Star Circuit of Champions event,” Rose explained. “And that date fit perfectly in our schedule!”

“We are really excited to see what 2022 brings,” exclaimed MASS’s Eddy Wagner. “Doug and Brittany have been a pleasure to work with. They want Sprint Cars at Bridgeport and we really want to be there so it works out perfectly! Bridgeport is the central hub of all of our race teams so it’s good to call Bridgeport our home track.” Wagner continued, “We are trying some two day races there this season to really get the excitement going starting with the Ron Faison 305 Spring Nationals in April and we are really looking forward to that event.”

MASS made eight appearances on the High Banks last season with 2021 MASS Champion, Kevin Nagy dominating the win column with six wins with Wagner and Dave Grube each earning a single victory. In addition to seasoned veterans like Tim Tanner, Rick Stief, Dave Brown and others, there are several up-and-coming young drivers like Zach Bealer, Cody West and Buddy Schweibinz who brought another element of excitement to the 305 events.

In addition to the Ron Faison Spring Nationals in April, MASS will also be a part of the Street Stock National weekend in October. “I had an idea in my head of what I wanted to do,” Rose explains, “but October is so full of big Modified events that I had to start thinking about a Sprint Car dominant show. “I scoured the schedules trying to find the perfect date and not step on anyone else’s show.” After a few hiccups along the way and conversations with several other promoters, Rose reached out to URC and USAC EC and came up with a fourth 410 Sprint Car event – Sprintoberfest – a three day weekend of sprint car racing at the end of October that will feature 410 winged sprint cars as well as 360 winged and wingless sprints.” “This weekend is going to be huge,” Rose exclaims with pride! There are some teams that are exploring the possibility of competing in all three classes! “Saturday’s 410 race will pay $5,000 to win while Sunday’s race will pay $15,000 to win, $1,000 to start.)

URC will have four shows at the Bridgeport Motorsports Park during the 2022 season. URC president, Ryan Stillwaggon says, “Bridgeport has always been a favorite stop for URC over the years but the new high banks have teams and fans circling the dates!” “It’s always an exciting show and URC is excited for all four appearances on the high banks.”
Ryan Smith and Anthony Macri were winners in URC shows at Bridgeport last season.

The wingless warriors of the USAC East Coast Sprints will compete in four events on the 2022 Bridgeport schedule. “The new Bridgeport Motorsports Park provides fantastic non-wing sprint action, says USAC EC’s Curt Michael. “Our series racers love racing on the high banks. We are excited to have some of our biggest races at Bridgeport.”

2021 USAC EC action was dominated by 2021 Champion, Alex Bright and 2021 Rookie of the Year, Briggs Danner but the competition will be tough when the green flag waves on the new season as past champion, Steven Drevicki, Christopher Allen, Jr. and Ed Aiken take on the young bloods like Tommy Kunsman, Damon Paul and Colin White.

URC opens their season on March 26th with additional date in July, October and November. MASS will open their season on March 25th and then return for the Ron Faison Spring Nationals on April 2nd and 3rd. MASS will return for nine Saturday night races before the season culminates with a two-day event in October when MASS appears with the Street Stock Nationals. USAC EC will be part of the Spring Nationals on April 2nd and will appear three more times, including the November 5th season finale.

The 410 Sprint Cars first appear in the Invasion of the Posse on Tuesday, April 19th. ($7,500 to win, $700 to start) Pennsylvania’s finest will return to compete against the World of Outlaws on Tuesday, May 17th and again on Thursday, August 25th with the first Bridgeport appearance of the All-Star Circuit Champions. ($12,000 to win) USAC’s Eastern Storm returns to the High Banks on Wednesday, June 15th.

So sharpen your pencils and get out your calendars! The Bridgeport Motorsports Park is where you want to be this season!

Twelve Inductees Announced as “Class of 2022” for National Sprint Car Hall of Fame!

Knoxville, IA, January 11, 2022 – The National Sprint Car Hall of Fame is pleased to announce the names of its eight inductees for 2022. Those that will be inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame on Saturday, June 4, during the 32nd annual ceremonies in Knoxville, Iowa, are:

Drivers

Bob Frey – Few sprint car drivers in the 1970’s and 1980’s had anything for Bob on the pavement. The five-time winner of the “Little 500” racked up wins from Sandusky to southern Florida on a regular basis. Driving the Ensign #37, the Durnwald #92 and finally Glen Niebel’s potent V6, Bob stormed to victory with USAC and several other series. Bob’s most impressive win in Anderson was probably in 1989, when he came from seven laps down to take it all.

Eric Gordon – Eric has an all-time record nine “Little 500” wins in his 22 career starts. His 30-year sprint car career was prolific and successful. He finished second in the USAC National Sprint Car standings in 1989, just his third year behind the wheel. His battles with fellow inductee Robbie Stanley were epic the next two years as he finished second those seasons as well. Among his many wins were 13 in USAC competition.

Terry Gray – Terry followed his father Elmer’s success into the sprint cars. By 1980, he won his first World of Outlaws event at his hometown Riverside Speedway. By the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, Terry was a consistent winner with the NCRA, USA and WoO series. In 1995, he was the first ASCS National champion, and he followed that with three more! In those four seasons, he amassed 43 wins. In 2001, he started what has been an outstanding driving career with the USCS series. He has amassed 13 championships to date, and is the all-time leading feature winner.

Tim Green – In less than twenty years behind the wheel of a sprint car, Tim amassed well over 200 feature wins. The Californian struck at venues across both the United States and Australia. Tim was a Knoxville Raceway champion twice, was the 1979 Western World champion at Manzanita, won three Skagit Dirt Cup events, and was a two-time NARC and Golden State titlist. His 1992 trip to Australia with owner bob Trostle netted 11 wins in 17 starts.

Tony Stewart – Tony was voted in the “Drivers” category, but could effectively have been nominated in several categories. He was the first driver to win the USAC Triple Crown in a single season, and has also recorded wins with the World of Outlaws, All Stars and several other series. As an owner, he has accumulated well over 300 wins with the World of Outlaws, nine WoO titles, 11 Knoxville Nationals wins and five King’s Royal wins. He also has 37 wins as an owner with the All Stars, and 71 with the USAC National Sprint Car Series. Among Tony’s purchases have been Eldora Speedway, one of the premier dirt tracks in the world, and he is credited with the salvation of the All Star Circuit of Champions with his purchase of that series in 2015.

Owners-Mechanics-Builders-Manufacturers-Car Builders

Ralph Heintzelman Sr. – A native of Beaver Springs, Pennsylvania, Ralph was arguably the biggest manufacturer/mechanic in Pennsylvania in the 1970’s. He was hired by Luke “Dick” Bogar to wrench for Jan Opperman. The result was a stunning 44-win season in 1972. The pair won a Selinsgrove track title the following year. When Jan left for USAC, Ralph kept going with driver, Lynn Paxton. The wins kept coming as did a championship at Port Royal, a win at the Florida Winter Nationals and at Port’s Tuscarora 50. Before a devastating garage fire in 1980, Ralph was building chassis that were going out and winning across the country.

Walter T. Ross – The iconic owner of the famous #56 in California would also later become president of the Northern Auto Racing Club (NARC). Born in Ireland, Walt grew up in New Jersey as a racing fan. He settled in California after military service and by 1958, had built a racecar that he drove successfully. He settled on owning sprint cars in the early 1970’s, and success followed for drivers like Mike Andreetta, Hank Butcher, Lem Tolliver and Aussie, Garry Rush. His most success would come in his time with “original outlaw” Gary Patterson. Track records and wins ensued. Others who graced the wheel of the #56 were Rendy Boldrini, Dave Bradway Jr. and LeRoy Van Connett to name just a few!

Dennis Roth – In 19”83” Dennis Roth would acquire the family owned “Beef Packers” meat processing plant and took it to great success. By 1993, he was a sprint car owner, and in 1994 a champion in the Rebel 360 Series. The next year, he was on the World of Outlaws tour. By 1998, he was a Knoxville Nationals champion with Danny Lasoski. His cars have won three Skagit Dirt Cups (Randy Hannagan, Kasey Kahne, Brandon Wimmer), and multiple King of the West championships. He won the Williams Grove National Open with David Gravel in 2014, and his many wins have come with the WoO, All Stars and assorted other series.

Promoters-Officials-Media Members-Event/Series Sponsors

John Gibson – From selling programs to becoming “The Voice of the World of Outlaws,” Johnny Gibson has worked more than 2,000 consecutive World of Outlaws races. That’s more than 25 years of events without missing a day since 1995. Behind the scenes, John has been an instrumental part of the growth of the World of Outlaws series for the last 25 years.

Jack Kromer – Jack has long been revered in the racing photography world. From taking shots in the stands in the 1970’s, he slowly developed his craft over the years. A devastating injury in the infield at Flemington Speedway in 1978, only slowed him for a time. Dick Berggren recognized his talent. Jack would score 26 covers on Open Wheel Magazine, the most by any photographer. He holds more than 30 first-place awards from the Eastern Motorsports Press Association and the American Auto Racing Writers and Broadcasters for racing imagery, and is a two-time winner of the Ace Lane Memorial Award, EMPA’s highest honor. In addition to Stock Car and Open Wheel, Jack has published photos in Area Auto Racing News, Program Dynamics Incorporated, Sprint Car & Midget and Popular Mechanics.

Robin Miller – Robin’s journalistic talents were known across racing genres. He spent early days in garages, and raced for several years in midgets. He’s best known for his stories and as a writer for the Indianapolis Star from 1968 to 2001. He also wrote and worked for Autoweek, Car and Driver, ESPN and Speed. Robin never forgot his first love: dirt car racing. He talked as much about Foyt, Rutherford, Andretti, Hurtubise, Bettenhausen, etc. in sprint cars as anything. His latest television works were for NBC at Indy.

Pre-1945

Walter “Slim” Rutherford – Slim was one of the leading builders and fabricators in the 1930’s and 1940’s. The Whiting, Indiana native had many innovations in his garage, and supplied cars and motors for many other drivers. He innovated such things as creating a cam shaft out of a train box car axle for his “Slim Rutherford Specials.” Rutherford won races across the Midwest and was the epitome of a “Big Car” racer and builder in his time.

According to National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum Foundation executive director Bob Baker, “This year’s inductee group is another testament to the hard work put in by our 72-member National Induction Committee! We are really looking forward to our 32nd induction banquet on the Marion County Fairgrounds in Knoxville, Iowa on Saturday, June 4!”

Tickets for the induction banquet will be available starting the first week in February.

TICKETS ARE GOING FAST FOR INDOOR RACING SERIES ROUND 2 AT BOARDWALK HALL – FLORES, JANKOWIAK READY TO RESUME BATTLE IN NAPA KNOW HOW GAMBLERS CLASSIC IN ATLANTIC CITY

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ JANUARY 11. 2022 . . . After a spectacular battle for supremacy ended in Ryan Flores favor in the Indoor Auto Racing Series 2022 opener, Andy Jankowiak hopes to even the score in round two inside Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall on January 28 & 29 for the NAPA Know How Gambler’s Classic.

A huge crowd Saturday night inside Allentown’s PPL Center celebrated the return of the Indoor Auto Racing after an absence of nearly two years. Flores proved once again to be the master of Allentown winning for the fifth time in ten races held there.

Jankowiak, however, heads to Atlantic City with the winning odds in his favor. When the series last held an event in late January of 2020, it was Jankowiak in victory lane for the second straight year. Flores, however, won the 2018 AC Gambler’s Classic.

“Indoor Auto Racing is a spectacle in itself, and when the racing is as tightly contested as it was in Allentown last week, the fans had to be leaving eager for more,” said Indoor Auto Racing Series promoter Len Sammons.

“What was good to see in the Allentown opener beside the battle for the lead was the competitiveness of drivers new to the Series. Max McLaughlin, Mike Christopher, Jr., Frank Cozze and Doug Stearly had never driven a TQ Midget, but they each found speed during the weekend. Mike’s late uncle Teddy won four times in Boardwalk Hall in his career. Mike went to victory lane with him, he could win it all in his honor this year,” Sammons lauded.

Christopher had mechanical problems and failed to qualify for the Allentown feature as did Cozze. But after a rough start to the opening night weekend, McLaughlin and Stearly put their rides in the show but neither finished the feature.

McLaughlin was gaining confidence in a TQ owned by Frankie Caparra while Stearly likewise was getting the handle on a car owned by Ken Spring. They are both expected to make an even stronger showing when they roll the dice in Atlantic City in two weeks.

Stearly, who won the Atlantic City 2020 Champ Kart feature, was also quick in that division in Allentown. But after setting fast time was involved in a weekend ending crash while leading his heat race.

Good tickets for the Atlantic City races are going fast. They are available in a range of prices one-line through Ticketmaster or by calling the Area Auto Racing News office at 609-888-3618 weekdays from 10 am to 4 pm. Tickets are also available at the box office in advance or the day of each event.

New for 2022 is an expanded reserved seating option in Atlantic City. Upper reserved seating has been expanded to include all of sections 209 through 217. General admission seats will be still be available in sections 202-208 and 218-225 for those wishing to purchase those tickets or holding a pit pass.

“The upper level seats in the corner in Atlantic City offer some of the best views of the track, this change will allow people the option to secure their favorite seat in advance,” stated Len Sammons.

The Indoor Auto Racing Series 2022 series finale will again be in Syracuse at the Expo Center located on the grounds of the New York State Fairgrounds on Friday and Saturday, March 11-12, 2022.

“It was great to hear from so many dedicated racers and fans that so dearly missed last winter’s Indoor Racing Series because of the Covid restrictions that forced their cancelation,” said Sammons.

“The events have become much more than just a race, but a gathering of friends who share the same love of the sport and great competition and from all those we’ve heard from each are eager to get to winter Indoor Auto Racing.”

Corporate sponsorship packages to fit every budget and group sales information are available for all events. For information, email Danny Sammons at danny@aarn.com or call him at 609-888-3616.

Information including host hotels for each event is available at indoorautoracing.com.

The Indoor Auto Racing Series concludes in Syracuse, NY at the NY State Fairgrounds Exposition Center on Friday and Saturday, March 11 & 12.

Series information including links for purchasing tickets, hotel rooms and racer entry forms are available on the series website: www.indoorautoracing.com.

Sponsorship opportunities remain for all Indoor Auto Racing Series races. For more information, contact Danny Sammons at danny@aarn.com.

Kaleb Johnson Climbing Sprint Car Ranks to Run 410 Division in 2022

Inside Line Promotions - SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Jan. 10, 2022) - Kaleb Johnson is pleased to announce a major move in his racing career regarding his plans for the 2022 season.

"I'm happy to share that we plan on competing in a 410 sprint car this year on a regular basis," he said. "We intend to be at all of the 410 races at Huset's Speedway and Jackson Motorplex. I'm really looking forward to it. This is something I've long anticipated."

Moving up to sprint car racing's top class is the culmination of years of racing for the 24-year-old, who began his career in a go-kart as a child.

"I've always hoped to race a 410 sprint car regularly since I was a kid," he said. "We were put in a good position to do this and I'm very fortunate to have this opportunity. It's pretty cool that we can do it 10 miles from home."

Johnson feels that he is prepared as much as possible for the next major step in his racing career and there's no better time to do it than the present.

"During our 360 racing, we've always tried to race against the best competition possible and to go to different tracks, preparing us for this moment," he said. "We know the level of competition at Huset's will be high and we're looking forward to it. As a racer, you always want to win. But I think a reasonable goal for us in our first year will be top-10 finishes."

Johnson will continue to compete in the 360 division at Knoxville Raceway, with the hope of improving on his sixth-place finish in the championship standings last year.

"We stepped up our qualifying at Knoxville last year and that helped us a lot," he said. "The main thing we need to do now to move up in points is finish every race. We had four DNFs there last year."

Johnson has an ambitious, albeit tentative, schedule planned for the 2022 racing season.

"I penciled out the schedule I'd like to run next season and came up with 52 races," he said. "That's a lot of races for a team like ours and it will depend on how our season goes regarding if we can make them all.

"We plan to open the season at Knoxville. We might also bring the 410 along the first couple of weeks there just to get some laps in with it. In addition to the races at Huset's, Jackson and Knoxville, we plan to race some World of Outlaws shows in the area as well as some Midwest Power Series races with the 360.

"We'll have three complete cars and four engines and are stocking up on extra parts, so we feel reasonably prepared."

Johnson would also like to thank Merle Johnson Farm Toys, Oddson Underground, GRP Motorsports, Innovative Design/Sletten Properties, Sea Foam, Snyder Tree Service, Guaranteed Rate-Mike Brudigan Home Loans, The Ron Weber Team, State Bank of Fairmont, Big Al's Diecast, Dave's Lawn Care & Landscaping, JF Capital, Last Deck, Hepfner Racing Products, Schaeffer's Oil, TL Racing and Cressman Sanitation for their continued support.

River Cities to host IRA Sprints doubleheader July 15-16, 2022

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (January 8, 2022) – The Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprints are coming to River Cities Speedway to take on the Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA Sprints July 15-16, 2022 for the Buffalo Wild Wings King of the Wings.

River Cities will also host the World of Outlaws Late Models on July 15th.

“Trying to get this event in place has been a multi-year effort and we are looking forward to bringing in the IRA Sprints for the first time in nearly 20 years,” said River Cities Speedway partner Darren Evavold. “With the World of Outlaws Late Models being a part of the Friday program, both Late Model and Sprint Car fans will have a lot to be excited about that weekend.”

The River Cities Speedway and NOSA all-time wins leader, Mark Dobmeier, has tallied a few IRA wins in his career. Most recently, he has collected victories at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin in 2013 and at Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin in 2011.

“This is going to be absolutely fantastic,” said an excited Dobmeier about the Buffalo Wild Wings King of the Wings. “Any time we can get more high caliber cars to come around here is great. The IRA is a great series, has a lot of really good drivers and a really big following. We should have a big car count for this show.

“(IRA) is a very similar series to what NOSA is,” said Dobmeier. “Just like NOSA, they have good car counts at all of their races and about 10 teams that are extremely competitive no matter where they go, whether they run with IRA or with the Outlaws. It’ll be a good race and a little rivalry battle on top of it.”

The Buffalo Wild Wings King of the Wings will be the first time the Bullring has hosted the IRA Sprints since 2003 when six-time IRA champion Joe Roe visited RydellCars.com victory lane.

“(River Cities Speedway) has a wonderful reputation. We were treated really well when we were there years ago. It’s a long trip for our series but several of our top teams have committed to going and I think we can bring enough representation to do ourselves justice,” said Steve Sinclair, president of the Wisconsin-based 410 Sprint Car series. “I think it’ll be a pretty fair fight (between the IRA and NOSA drivers). The two groups are pretty similar. Obviously, NOSA has home track advantage but the last time we were there it was an IRA guy that was victorious so on my end we’ll hope for the same,” said Sinclair with a laugh.

Sweet Scores Top Spot in 2021 Winged 410 Sprint Car Power Rankings!

Lonnie Wheatley, BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (January 7, 2022) – After surrendering the top spot in 2020, Brad Sweet recaptured the number one position in the 2021 edition of the Winged 410 Sprint Car Power Rankings.

After earning his first number one ranking in 2020, Sweet ceded the top position to Kyle Larson.  But the Grass Valley, CA, bounced bac to recapture the top ranking in 2021 on the strength of 17 overall wins in 2021 including 16 in World of Outlaws competition as he raced to a third consecutive series championship.

The battle for the top ranking was a close one throughout with Donny Schatz, Carson Macedo and David Gravel all in the mix throughout.

Schatz, who earned the top spot for six consecutive years from 2013 to 2018 (the Winged 410 Sprint Car Power Rankings began in 2013), ultimately finished off 2021 ranked second just 38 points off of Sweet’s lead pace.  While Schatz only posted five wins, he topped the charts in both top-fives (54) and top-tens (72).

Carson Macedo racked up a dozen wins along the way to post his top ranking of third just another 28 points back.  Macedo’s previous top ranking was tenth in both 2018 and 2019.

Gravel scored 14 feature wins to rank 14th, making it six consecutive years among the top five for the Connecticut racer.

Logan Schuchart finished among the top five for the third year in a row by rounding out the top five with Sheldon Haudenschild matching his previous best ranking of sixth that occurred in 2020.  Danny Dietrich extended his streak of top-ten rankings eighth in a row by finishing out the year in seventh with the Pennsylvania duo of Brent Marks and Anthony Macri in eighth and ninth, respectively.  All Star Circuit of Champions titlist Tyler Courtney rounded out the top ten as he broke into the top ten for the first time.

Sweet joined the trio of Brady Bacon (Non-Wing Sprint Cars), J.J. Hickle (Winged 360 Sprint Cars) and Buddy Kofoid (Midgets) as the top earners in the 2021 Open Wheel Power Rankings.

The club’s annual car show, which began in April of 1973 had previously been held at the Southern Park Mall in Boardman , Ohio for the inaugural show, and from 1974 until 2010 was held at the Eastwood Mall in Niles, Ohio. The event showcases local stock and drag cars and local race tracks with their displays to promote their upcoming season. The fans will be able to get an up close look at the mounts that sling dirt or burn rubber on summer weekends, where the average fan does not have the ability to see the cars up close. The show will include an autograph night on Saturday as fans both young and old will be able to collect autographs of all the drivers in attendance and also will host their annual Promoter’s night where all the local tracks will be able to inform the public on their 2022 plans and to pass out schedules. Friday night the club will celebrate drivers night as all drivers from the past and present are welcome to discuss their career and plans for 2022.

The first show in April 1973 had 76 machines grace the interior of the Southern Park Mall, and was a first for the Ohio/ West. Pa. Area. 1973 president and current club Senior chairman emeritus Jim Balentine Sr. recalls the event. “the off season going into 1973 our club discussed this idea to put cars on display inside the mall to help promote Expo, Sharon, and Canfield Speedways..all within 30 minutes from the mall. My wife Sue and Sandy Cahalin grabbed phone books and began calling drivers from those tracks to see if they were interested...and we has 76 cars inside the mall...it was so crowded that on the Saturday of the show there were no more parking spaces left in the parking lot as the mall was filled to capacity and the local police had to monitor the entrances to the mall. We had no idea what we were doing as it was never done before..but we did something right!!!”

The show then moved to the larger Eastwood Mall in Niles, Ohio and from 1974 until the last one in 2010 continued to be a rousing success. Besides local entries, cars began coming as far away as Canton, Ohio and Butler, Pa to take advantage of the popular show. The show was, according to mall management, the second busiest time of the year beside Christmas, as race fans patronized the local shops inside the mall. In 2010 with a change in mall management, the show ceased in operation, and the club was without its popular show. In 2018, the Shenango Valley Mall was approached by the club to give rebirth to their show...and was well receive by fans, shoppers, and mall stores and management. For 2 years the mall show was immensely successful and was halted last year due to COVID-19.

Twin state PR director Jim Balentine Jr states, “When we returned to having a mall show the Shenango mall could not have been more gracious and supportive. The mall went out of their way to make that show successful last year with all kinds of help and were rewarded with a huge turnout of patrons visiting the mall which also helped improve mall revenue, which was a win-win for all parties involved!! We are excited to build off of each year with a bigger car count for 2022 for the mall!!!

Bacon Tops Non-Wing Sprint Car Rankings Again in 2021!

Lonnie Wheatley, BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (January 6, 2022) – Brady Bacon made it two years in a row by topping the Non-Wing Sprint Car Power Rankings once again in 2021.

Bacon became the third different driver to top the Non-Wing Sprint Car Power Rankings in consecutive years since its inception in 2013 along with Robert Ballou (2014 and 2015) and Kevin Thomas, Jr. (2016, 2017 and 2018).

Five of Bacon’s eight overall Non-Wing Sprint Car wins in 2021 came in USAC National Sprint Car competition as he raced to a fourth career Sprint Car championship.  Victories came at Lawrenceburg, Grandview and Bloomington along with preliminary wins at Perris Auto Speedway’s “Oval Nationals” and Arizona Speedway’s “Western World Championships”.

Finishing among the top-ten in Non-Wing Sprint Car Power Rankings for the ninth consecutive year, Bacon took the top spot by 91 points over Justin Grant.  With a Kokomo Smackdown triumph among his 10 wins on the season, Grant finished among the top-five for a fifth consecutive year.

2021 Oval Nationals champion Kevin Thomas, Jr., finished out the year ranked third, his sixth time among the top three including three times at the top rung of the ladder.

Jake Swanson put together his best season to date by ranking fourth with his first USAC Sprint Car win in Oval Nationals preliminary action among his eight feature wins for the year.

With a victory in the Inaugural USAC Sprint Car Nationals at Huset’s Speedway among his seven overall wins, C.J. Leary rounded out the top five to make it four years in a row among the top five including the top ranking in 2019.

Tanner Thorson ranked sixth with the balance of the top ten including Chris Windom, Logan Seavey, Robert Ballou and Jadon Rogers.

While Bacon has finished amongst the top ten during each of the nine years of the Non-Wing Sprint Car Power Rankings, Swanson, Thorson, Seavey and Rogers each broke into the top ten for the first time.

Separated into Non-Wing 410 and Non-Wing 360 Power Rankings through 2018, those were consolidated into a single Non-Wing Sprint Car Power Ranking for 2019 and beyond with all Non-Wing 410 and injected Non-Wing 360 events included in the Rankings.
