Premier Speedway Shuffles the Calendar, Classic Still a Priority

As the whole of Australia continues to grapple with the uncertainty and pending conditions of return to some form of post COVID normality, the Premier Speedway Club Board of Management met recently to adjust their 2021-22 season calendar, to provide the best chance of the Club completing a full season.

While the changes as agreed upon are now in place, the Club will need to remain extremely agile as the reality is that State Government and Chief Health Officer advice and regulations will still determine how the 2021-22 season looks – at this time this is still very much a work in progress.

Given these pending instructions, and advice with regards to crowd sizes etc., the Club is continuing to work with the respective race divisions around a re-shuffle of a number of key dates, with a likely season start now slated for Saturday December 18, 2021, which will feature Max’s Race for Sprintcars.

“At this time, we are continuing to work with the relevant State Government Departments with regards to when we can kick off our season in a manner that is safe for all of our competitors, officials and race fans”, Premier Speedway General Manager David Mills said.

“There is so much to work through, that at times it would be easier to throw our hands in the air and say let’s not worry about it this year, however the Club is determined to start as soon as we can, with the South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic still a part of the Club’s plans this season”, he added.

“To be able to have a crowd in the venue, that makes an event the size of the Classic viable is crucial to our decision making, then to be able to be approved for a crowd of that size, we have so many hurdles to jump, including fully understanding the impact of COVID Vaccination Passports, how our seating can work, the ability to attract staff to operate Canteen’s etc are all a part of it and are very real issues that we are addressing now”.

“We understand that there may be starting to be a degree of agitation from those that have purchased season passes, memberships and reserved seats for the coming season and also from those that are expecting ticket sales to be available on-line, as to why they haven’t had these mailed out yet or as to why they can’t access the ticketing site. The answer to this is that we have everything in place and ready to go from our end, but again we need the Government to sign off on how we are going to operate before we can commence the mail out or launch our ticketing.” Mills added.

“The long and the short of it is, is that our patience like those awaiting tickets etc, is being tested, however we don’t want to short change anyone and we are simply waiting for the all clear to move forward, in reality, if we are searching for a time frame, early December is when we think we will be able to or in a worst case scenario be for forced into making some solid decisions”, he said.

So, as it stands currently, the November meetings are postponed with the Victorian Title night of November 20, likely to now (subject to confirmation) form part of a double header weekend with Avalon’s Great Southern Showdown, with the Victorian Title on Friday March 4, 2022 before Avalon host their scheduled meeting on Saturday March 5, 2022.

The Classic is being planned, however if our amazing fans wish to try and secure accommodation, we suggest confirming with your accommodation provider what is the latest fee free cancellation date to avoid any unnecessary cost.

In a perfect world the Classic will run, it may yet be affected by border closures in certain states, it may also have a capped audience and in a worst case, it may even be postponed and replaced by individual nights of racing.

As soon as the Club knows this information, it will make it public as soon as practical.

The Club also wishes to advise that its stance with regards to vaccination policies etc, will be completely determined by the Governments Regulations, more of which was outlined in a video update that was released by the Club on Friday October 15, 2021 on the Club’s Facebook Page.

To summarize, we are planning to move forward hoping that early December is the trigger for vaccination rates to be high enough for the Government to allow us to operate. We are, and we ask our officials, competitors and patrons to also be aware that things may change, so please be aware of this.

Cold, wet weather forces Waynesfield to cancel

Friday, Oct. 15, 2021

WAYNESFIELD, Ohio – Wet, cold weather has forced Waynesfield Raceway Park officials to cancel the season-ending event scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 16.

“The rain we received over the past few days, coupled with more rain forecast for Saturday morning and unseasonably cold temperatures just wouldn’t give us enough drying time for the grounds to be able to put on a good show for the fans and race teams. It was so great to have fans back in the stands this season and we will continue to make improvements to the facility and begin planning for 2022,” said Waynesfield Promoter Shane Helms.

“I want to thank our great team at Waynesfield, all the fantastic fans and race teams, the series and the sponsors who came on board this past year. As always a huge thank you to the Shobe family for working with me on this incredible opportunity,” Helms added.

BROCKVILLE'S FALL NATIONALS TO DECIDE 2021 ACTION SPRINT TOUR TITLE

By Tommy Goudge (October 14, 2021) – The Action Sprint Tour Crate Sprint Car series fueled by Pinty's will crown a champion this weekend in the Fall Nationals at Brockville Ontario Speedway.

An action-packed weekend is on tap at Brockville, as AST finishes the season at "The Bullring" for a second consecutive year. Nick Sheridan and Jesse Costa claimed Fall Nationals wins at Brockville in 2020, while 27 drivers were set to compete in the first AST points event at Brockville in August before Mother Nature intervened. This weekend's event also features special events for 358 Modifieds, Sportsman Modifieds, Street Stocks, Mini Stocks, and Vintage Cars, and a rare afternoon event on Saturday.

Drivers and teams from Brockville’s new 1000 Islands RV Crate Sprint Car division are looking forward to defending home turf. All-time Southern Ontario Sprints feature win leader “The Joyceville Jet” Rick Wilson and former SOS champion “The General” Lee Ladouceur are now racing in the Crate division. Modified standout Matt Billings has won twice at Brockville in Ryan Hunsinger’s #52 Crate Sprint this season and claimed the 2021 track championship, while Ryan Poole is the most recent Brockville winner.

Jacob Dykstra heads into the weekend as the AST points leader, and has won 10 out of the 13 AST events held thus far in 2021. Dykstra also won at Brockville earlier this season against the 1000 Islands RV Crate Sprint Car division regulars, while Allan Downey, Nick Sheridan, and Darren Dryden have also claimed AST wins this season. The all-time Action Sprint Tour win list does not feature any drivers from Eastern Ontario or Quebec...yet.

EXTRA CASH Drivers will race for some extra cash this weekend at Brockville; a total of 20 travel bonuses of $100 each will be awarded over the two days thanks to 1000 Islands RV Centre and Corr/Pak Merchandising, while Splash Well Drilling will award $50 halfway bonuses each night.

CHAMPIONSHIP CHASE Jacob Dykstra leads the AST standings entering the final weekend of 2021, but his advantage shrank considerably after the most recent event at Humberstone Speedway; a crash coupled with a win by Allan Downey cut Dykstra's lead to 32 points heading into Brockville. Nick Sheridan is currently third, 36 points behind Downey, with fourth place Eric Gledhill just 15 points behind Sheridan. Brett Stratford, Lucas Smith, Rob Neely, Darren Dryden, Dereck Lemyre, and Dale Curran make up the remainder of the current top ten.

AFTER 55 YEARS OF BEING INVOLVED ERNIE SAXTON RETIRES FROM GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA OCTOBER 14, 2021 . . . Eight years ago, I retired as the NASCAR sanctioned Grandview Speedway announcer after 45 years in the booth. The plan had been to retire from everything. At that time, Bruce and Theresa Rogers asked me to stick around as their PR person until they could find someone else to step into that position. Now, After 55 years of public relations, marketing and announcing work at NASCAR sanctioned Grandview Speedway, at age 79, it seems it is time to retire.

From the first day I walked through the front gate at Grandview, working for the Rogers family has been a wonderful experience. They helped me become better at what I do and I think I helped make Grandview Speedway become more successful. My wife Marilyn and I became very close with Bruce and Theresa Rogers. We traveled together and had homes in the Sunshine State that we enjoyed. It was like family.

Future plans, as many know, include writing a book about my 63 years of experiences in motorsports. It is more difficult than I thought it would be but the work goes on. I will continue to write columns for Area Auto Racing News, Lansdale, PA Reporter, Inside Track Motorsports News and PennSports.Live. I expect to continue to do PR work for Len Sammons Motorsports Productions which include indoor auto racing events and the PPB Motorsports Trade and Race Car Show. When time and energy allows, I will take on consultation with those needing help with sponsorship and PR work.

Thank goodness for a wonderful wife, Marilyn, who has been a driving and supportive force behind my efforts. One person in particular that has been very helpful with my Grandview work is Vicki Gehris. A huge thank you goes out to her. And I cannot forget to thank all of those great folks that I have worked with over those many years. I surely would not have been able to continue on for so many years without their help and support.

I wish the Rogers family and others involved with Grandview Speedway the very best. Thanks for allowing me to be part of it all. And thanks to those in the media who have been supportive of our efforts over the years.

Sprint Car Challenge Tour primed for Petaluma Speedway this Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Petaluma, CA…The Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards will head next for its penultimate point race of the season this Saturday at Petaluma Speedway.

The event marks the final Sprint Car Challenge Tour appearance of the year at Sonoma County’s longest running entertainment venue. The tacky and hooked-up 3/8 mile clay oval is always a welcomed stop around Northern California. Petaluma Speedway routinely produces thrilling wheel-to-wheel racing, as lapped traffic can create some of the most hectic action of any venue on tour.

Please note the facility features an earlier start time, with cars on track for wheel packing around 4pm.

With just two point races remaining in the Sprint Car Challenge Tour season, Foresthill’s Ryan Robinson brings a 43-marker advantage into the Petaluma Speedway on Saturday. Robinson is coming off an eighth place finish last Friday at Keller Auto Speedway, which was his tenth top-10 effort in the 11 races held thus far. Back in June he ran second to Kaleb Montgomery, during what was a thrilling 35-lapper.

Roseville’s Colby Copeland was able to shave a few points off the lead after last weeks event and heads into Petaluma hoping to do the same. Copeland has one win on the SCCT season and like Robinson, has been a familiar sight at the front of the field. Clarksburg’s Justyn Cox ranks third in points and is just 13-digits back of Copeland, in what has been a closely contested position this year. Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick and Roseville’s Sean Becker complete the top-five in points with two races left in 2021. Becker has always gotten around the Petaluma Speedway in good fashion and will be a favorite on Saturday.

Rounding out the top-10 in the standings are Redding’s Chase Majdic, Auburn’s Andy Forsberg, Rio Linda’s Isaiah Vasquez, Templeton’s Kaleb Montgomery and Fremont’s Shane Golobic. During the SCCT appearance in June at Petaluma it was Montgomery who earned his initial tour win.

Adult tickets this Saturday October 16th will cost $25, juniors 6-11 are $15, seniors and military $22, while kids five and under will be free.

The pit gate for competitors opens at approximately noon, while the front gate for spectators opens at 4pm. The drivers meeting will be held at 3:45pm, with track packing shortly after. Hot laps, Bianchi Farms qualifying and heat races will follow.

The Petaluma Speedway is located in the southern part of the wine country at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds just off Highway 101 in Petaluma, California. More info on the track can be found at http://www.petaluma-speedway.com

The Sprint Car Challenge Tour would like to thank Elk Grove Ford, Abreu Vineyards, Hoosier Racing Tires, Kyle Larson Racing, Pit Stop USA, Bianchi Farms, Bullard Construction, D&D Roofing, Garth Moore Insurance and Financial Services and High Sierra Industries for their support this season.

Ryan Robinson 8th at Cotton Classic as He Continues to Lead SCCT Point Standings

PETERSEN MEDIA: Though he would slip back late in Friday night’s feature event, Ryan Robinson had a very strong night going in Hanford, CA with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour and continues to sit atop the point standings as the series heads to its penultimate event of the season on Saturday in Petaluma, CA.

“We had the car to beat early in the night, which is always really good for confidence,” Ryan Robinson said. “Unfortunately, we kind of missed our set up in the feature event and we slipped back to eighth, but in the big picture it was still a good night.”

With the track having timing and scoring loop issues prior to time trials, SCCT officials made the decision to forego time trials and run the Chili Bowl/ASCS draw show format with heat races and qualifiers.

Lining up fourth in his heat race, Robinson would put the field on high alert early on this night as he made quick work aboard the Mako Farms, Inc./LP Holdings/RPI backed No. 14w machine and picked up the heat race win.

Gridding the field from sixth in his qualifier, Robinson would continue to flex his muscle as he gained more passing points and powered is way to a second place finish, making him the night’s high point earner and putting his mount on the pole.

Searching for another win on the 2021 season, and a chance to extend his series points lead, Robinson would get the initial jump, however Dominic Scelzi would keep Robinson honest and drop Robinson to second at the flag stand to complete the opening lap.

Running second, Robinson would find himself battling with the likes of Shane Golobic and DJ Netto, though would keep them at bay.

At the race’s halfway point, Golobic would get by Robinson to drop him back to third, before Netto got by a lap later to push him back to fourth.

After a couple of late cautions and restarts, Robinson would lose a couple of more positions, as he fell back to eighth where he would go on to finish.

“We were pretty good early in the feature, but over the course of the race it was tough to make grip and we lost a few spots,” Robinson said. “Still a fun night, and thanks to Todd and everyone for their support.”

Weiher Racing would like to thank Mako Farms, Inc., LP Holdings, Roseville Precision, Inc., Escalon Body and Frame, Seth’s Racing Engines, Papa Chuck, Dave Harvey Trucking, and Morrison Concrete for their support in 2021!

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-22, Wins-1, Top 5’s-9, Top 10’s-19

ON TAP: Robinson and the Weiher Racing team return to action on Saturday night in Petaluma, CA for another night of Sprint Car Challenge Tour action.

Late Race Miscue Knocks Tanner Carrick Out of Cotton Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA: Traveling to Hanford, CA on Friday night to resume action with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour, Tanner Carrick would make a late race mistake that ultimately brought his night to an end.

“We had pretty decent speed, in the feature I got up over the curb and was off the track, but the yellow never came out so I just headed back to the trailer,” Carrick said. “Saturday night we were a little better, but there was a medical emergency in the pits, and our race never got to run.”

A wild weekend of sorts in Hanford, CA got off to a tricky start on Friday night with the timing and scoring loop going down after hot laps. Rather than hand scoring all 38 cars, SCCT officials opted to use the Chili Bowl heat race/qualifier format on this night.

Drawing the second row for his heat race, Carrick would jump into second when the race came to life. Chasing after Corey Day, Carrick would hang on to second, and move his CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil entry into a qualifier.

Finding himself back in the second row of his qualifier, Carrick would settle into the fourth position, where he would finish. When all of the qualifiers were completed, Carrick sat 9th in points, which put him in the fifth row for the 30-lap feature event.

As the feature came to life, Carrick would work inside the Top-10 as he would attack the slick Keller Auto Speedway surface that was presented to the field. Working the high side of the speedway, Carrick get tight on the cushion just after the race’s halfway point and it would send him off the racing surface.

Slowing outside of turns one and two, the yellow flag would never be displayed, and Carrick would be forced back to his pit area, ending his night.

Back in action with Kings of Thunder 360 Series on Saturday night, Carrick would time in third fastest in his qualifying flight

Lining up second in his heat race, Carrick would finish second as he chased Kyle Hirst across the finish line. Slated to start 10th in the feature event, track officials would be forced to throw a red for a medical emergency in the pit area just prior to the race going green. After a several minute delay, the decision was made to cancel the race.

“A little bit of a disappointing weekend, but the speed was there and that has me feeling confident for Trophy Cup,’ Carrick said. “Thanks to everyone for their continued hard work and support.”

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: 55, Wins: 7, Top 5’s: 25, Top 10’s: 33

ON TAP: Carrick will take this week off before returning to action in two weeks for the Trophy Cup.

Becker Bags Pair of Top-10’s in Hanford, CA

PETERSEN MEDIA- A busy weekend in Hanford, CA would see Sean Becker record a Top-10 in Friday night’s Cotton Classic with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour, as well as a ninth-place finish with the King of the West Series in the first of two Twin-20 feature events.

“Friday night we ran an ASCS format, and I didn’t do a very good job in my qualifier and buried us in the feature event,” Sean Becker said. “We were, however, able to bounce back in the feature and work our way forward to a Top-10. Saturday night we were really good, but unfortunately there was an emergency in the pit area that forced the 360ci feature to get cancelled.”

Checking at Keller Auto Speedway for Sprint Car Challenge Tour action during the Cotton Classic, timing and scoring issues would result in series officials opting to use an ASCS/Chili Bowl format with pill draw setting heat line up, and points setting line ups for qualifiers and feature events.

Drawing the front row in his heat race, Becker would pick up a second-place finish aboard the M&M Structures backed No. 35 entry. The finish would then put the Roseville, CA driver in the second row of his qualifier.

Losing a few costly positions in the qualifier, Becker’s sixth place finish would not be enough to lock him into the feature event, and he would instead find himself on the pole of the semi.

Racing his way to the ‘B’ Main win, Becker would keep his night alive as he transferred into the feature event where he would take the green flag from the 17th starting position.

On the slick racing surface, Becker was able to keep the same pace that he set in the ‘B’, as he worked his way towards the Top-10. In a very paced feature event, Becker would rally to pick up eight positions in the 30-lap finale as he took the checkered flag in the ninth position.

Saturday night Becker would do double-duty as he would be in action with the King of the West Series for the Morrie Williams Tribute aboard the Vertullo Motorsports No. 83V machine, as well as with the Kings of Thunder 360’s back with Dan Monhoff.

While his night was going well in 360ci, action and he was slated to start the feature event from the pole, a medical emergency in the pit area would force officials to cancel the race just prior to going green.

In 410ci action, Becker would go out near the middle of time trials session and with the track starting to go away, he would end up 14th fastest in time trials.

Starting and finishing fifth in his heat race, Becker would line the Starr Property Management/Morrison Concrete/A.R.T. backed mount up in the 14th starting position for the first 20-lap feature event of the night.

Just as he did during Friday night’s 360ci feature, Becker would carve his way forward as he raced towards the Top-10.

With 20-laps clicking off in no time at all, Becker would turn in a hard-fought performance as he would finish ninth, and after the inversion find himself starting 12th in the second 20-lap feature event.

After a strong run in the opening race, Becker was unable to match his efforts in the second race though he would again battle for a Top-10. Unable to get back up there in the second feature, Becker capped his weekend off with a 12th place finish.

“I really have to thank the entire 83v team for working extremely hard all week to ensure that we could compete in this Morrie Williams Tribute event, Becker said. “We had some good speed and passed a lot of cars in the first feature, but I just wanst able to build the same momentum in the second feature. Overall it was still a really solid night in the 410ci with Dave and his team.”

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-51, Wins-1, Top 5’s- 11, Top-10’s- 26

ON TAP: Becker and Monhoff Racing will be back in action on Saturday night in Petaluma, CA

“The first weekend back in the Tarlton Motorsports No. 21 felt great,” Ryan Bernal said. “Paul Baines and the guys had me comfortable right off the bat, and I was happy with how things went, and am excited to finish the year out with this team.”

Friday night the Tarlton family welcomed Bernal back and would get things underway by timing the Tarlton and Son, Inc./EZ Haul/Executive Auto Sales backed No. 21 machine in 12th fastest.

Unfortunately, while racing for position, Bernal would be involved in a lap two yellow, and be forced to tag the back of the pack. From the tail end of the field, Bernal would continue to move forward just as he had done during the races opening laps.

Getting all he could in a quick 20-lap race, Bernal would bounce back to finish 16th.

Blake Carrick Scores Trio of 410ci Top-10’s

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting back to 410ci action over the weekend in Hanford, CA, Blake Carrick would have a solid weekend as he picked up three Top-10 finishes in the three feature events he competed in.

“It was fun to get back in the 410ci and have a pretty good weekend after a tough Fall Nationals,” Blake Carrick said. “We ran well against some really good cars, so I was pleased with how things went.”

Carrick kicked a busy weekend at Keller Auto Speedway off on Friday night during the Cotton Classic by timing the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil entry in second fastest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up fourth in his heat race, the Lincoln, CA driver would finish fourth and garner a berth into the Dash.

Pulling the six pill, Carrick would hang on and finish sixth and place himself in the third row for the Friday night Cotton Classic feature event. On a super slick racing surface, Carrick would keep his machine well inside the Top-10 as he battled with Kyle Hirst and Ryan Bernal.

When the 30-lap feature drew to a close, Carrick would accept the checkered flag with an eighth-place finish.

Returning to Keller Auto Speedway on Saturday night for the Morrie Williams Tribute that ran under KWS sanction, Carrick would get off to a bit of a slower start as he timed in 13th fastest on deteriorating track conditions.

Lining up fifth in his heat race, Carrick would put together a very impressive run as he worked his way up to second and earned another berth into the Sunnyvalley Bacon Dash.

Running fourth in the Dash, Carrick was set to take the green flag from the second row for the first of two 20-lap feature events.

Picking up a seventh-place finish in the first feature event, Carrick would line up 17th in the second race after the field was fully inverted off of their opening race finish.

Putting together a nice run through a stout field, Carrick would pick up another Top-10 finish as he was +10 in this race and took home another seventh-place finish.

Ramey Earns ASCS Warrior Region and Lake Ozark Speedway Championships

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Oct. 12, 2021) - Gunner Ramey secured a pair of sprint car championships last Saturday thanks to a runner-up result at Lake Ozark Speedway.

Ramey tied a career-best sprint car finish with the second-place showing, which earned the Hard Charger Award and wrapped up the ASCS Warrior Region title as well as the track championship.

"It's definitely cool," he said. "This year is really my first full year. Last year I ran about 15 shows. To have a partial season and then now in my first full season to grab two championships is really cool and it gives us momentum going into next year."

The Terry Doogs Racing competitor began the night by advancing from fifth to fourth place in a heat race. He made the feature redraw, but pulled the second-highest number to line up on the inside of the fourth row in the A Main.

"I only passed one car in the heat race, but we made the redraw because there wasn't much passing in the heat races," he said. "I was the last car to make the top-eight redraw and we drew the No. 7.

"We were good the whole race, but we really came on the last half of the race. Thankfully they worked the track a little bit at intermission to make it better for the feature. There was a red on the initial start and then after that it went green to checkered. I got to fourth and was hoping I could catch back up to the leaders. They got to racing pretty hard and I clicked laps off and the next thing you know I was on their bumpers. The top four were going back and forth for about 10 laps. We were all racing pretty hard. We got to second and I tracked the leader down a little bit, but we needed to be there sooner or have a yellow to bunch us back up. It was a fun race and a good race.

"It's a good way to cap off the season around here. I felt like most nights we had the best car in a lot of these series races so it's good to have something to show for it."

Ramey will be off this weekend before ending his season Oct. 22-23 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., during the 34th annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

Skinner Rallies for Flip Flop 50 Feature Win at Riverside International Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (Oct. 12, 2021) - Marshall Skinner overcame a crash during Friday's preliminary night to capture the second USCS Series Flip Flop 50 feature on Saturday at Riverside International Speedway.

Skinner rolled off sixth on the starting grid for the second feature of the night after finishing fifth in the first race at the event, which includes two 25-lap contests.

"I really had no idea what position I was in for most of the race," he said. "It was 22 cars on a bullring with a lot of two- and three-wide racing - darting, diving, splitting cars every lap.

"Late in the race, I saw Howard Moore and Jeff Swindell battling in front of me. Then with three laps to go, Howard had contact with a lapped car. That brought out the caution and he pulled in with damage to his car. Then I found out over the RACEceiver that I had been in second and Howard was trying to lap Jeff. With Howard out now, I had the lead on the restart. I led the final three laps for the win."

The racing began on Friday night when Skinner won his heat race from the pole. That placed him in the third starting spot in the 10-car scramble, which set the lineup for Saturday's first feature.

"Brad Bowden and I were racing hard, our cars touched and we both went for a ride," he said. "It totaled his car and I had to take the motor out of mine on Saturday to straighten the frame. It was a racing deal. Brad and I are good about it. It's just bullring racing."

Skinner was successful in his return on Saturday, maneuvering from ninth to fifth in the opening feature before advancing from sixth to claim the second race. The win was Skinner's third 360ci sprint car feature victory of the year and sixth overall, including trips to Victory Lane during 305ci competition.

"It's been a pretty good year," he said. "I won the most money I've ever won in racing earlier this year at the memorial race at Riverside. Saturday night paid well, too. First place was $2,500 plus fifth-place money in the other feature."

The next race for Skinner will be in 305 competition at Riverside International Speedway for the Grass Root Nationals on Saturday followed by a return to 360 racing the ensuing weekend at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., during the 34th annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

Dover Wins Steve King Memorial Opener Before Placing Third During Event Finale

Inside Line Promotions - DODGE CITY, Kan. (Oct. 12, 2021) - Jack Dover scored his sixth triumph of the season last Friday during the opening round of the Steve King Memorial hosted by Dodge City Raceway Park.

It marked the first time in a little more than five years since Dover visited the track, but that didn't slow him down. He hustled from seventh to fourth during a heat race on Friday.

"The track was kind of heavy and on a heavy track everybody is fast," he said. "We had to make our moves fast and then fall in line."

The performance earned the outside front row starting position in the main event and Dover capitalized, leading the distance to return to Victory Lane.

"We got a good jump on the start and went into turn one side by side with the polesitter," he said. "I was able to come out ahead of him in turn two and we never looked back. Traffic was interesting. I got slowed up a little. I knew I slowed my pace up so at that point I had to make some risky moves. We were able to get through. Two yellows came out toward the end of the race, but I had really good restarts and never saw anybody's nose."

Dover ranked third in event points following the opening round. Qualifiers were inverted to begin Saturday's finale and once again Dover rallied from the fourth row - eighth - to place fourth.

"The track started to rubber up in the qualifier," he said. "We got up to fourth right away. It seemed we were catching the guys in front of us, but it would have taken a long time to get to them."

Dover started the main event on the outside of the second row.

"They reworked the track twice throughout the night and it was a really good track," he said. "The race went green to checkered. We rode around in fourth for a while. Once we got by Chris Martin we were able to run down the leaders, but it was too late. I think if it was five or six more laps we might have had something for them. I'd say 90 percent of the race was up top, but if you had to go to the bottom you could."

Dover's third-place result was his 30th top five of the season. That's his most top fives since 2011.

"I'm very pleased," he said. "Our main goal was to finish top three both nights to make for a good weekend and we were able to accomplish that."

Dover plans on racing this Friday and Saturday at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, during the 48th annual Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. He has recorded top 10s at Devil's Bowl Speedway in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2019 and last year. Additionally, Dover produced a podium during the event each of the last two years.

"I feel pretty good," he said. "We need to do well in the heat race to put ourselves in a good spot come feature-time. Last year I think we started 14 th and ran up to fourth during the finale. I know we have a fast car. We just need to put ourselves in a good spot."

QUICK RESULTS -

Hagar Claims Flip Flop 50 Opener Before Charging From 22 nd to Third in Second Feature

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (Oct. 12, 2021) - Derek Hagar recorded a career-best performance during the famed Flip Flop 50 last weekend at Riverside International Speedway.

Hagar added another win to his list, capturing the opening race of the twin-feature format for the USCS Series. He capped the event by charging from 22nd to third in the second A Main.

"I feel pretty good," he said. "If they'd made it 30 laps I think we might have been able to pull off one of those deals of winning from the back."

The event began on Friday with Hagar maneuvering from seventh to fifth place in a heat race.

"We didn't have too good of a car on Friday," he said. "It was a little free and I really couldn't make up ground on the guys in front of us. Passing two cars wasn't good enough to put us in the scramble."

That relegated Hagar to the third starting position in a B Main to kick off Saturday's program.

"We got the lead fairly quick and won it, which put us starting 10 th in the first feature," he said. "In that race everybody would go to the bottom or middle and I could rip the top. There were a couple of times passing cars down the front straightaway where we'd get squeezed toward the wall. We got to second within 15 laps. I could see the leader in front of me up in traffic, but I wasn't gaining a lot of ground. Then we had a caution. I anticipated that he was going to run the top, but he slid himself. That messed me up and he got away from me. We got back to traffic and I was able to reel him back in. I was able to get a run on him and slide him in turns one and two coming to get the white flag. He tried to slide me back the next lap, but I had a good enough run on top to drive back around."

The charge from 10th to win was Hagar's seventh victory of the season. The second main event started Hagar at the rear in 22nd.

"The way they have the format now all the lapped cars aren't part of the invert and we lapped up to ninth so they had the fastest cars up front," he said. "It was eventful getting through there. I knew I was passing a lot of cars. With about three laps to go there was a caution and we were fifth. I slid Morgan (Turpen) on the restart and then in turns three and four I got Hayden (Martin). I was chasing Dale (Howard) and Marshall (Skinner), but ran out of time. We had a winning car and I think we could have got it done with a few more laps."

The rally from last to third was one spot better than Hagar's previous top performance in 2017 when he won the opening race before hustling from 22 nd to fourth in the second feature.

Hagar plans to take this weekend off before ending his season Oct. 22-23 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., during the 34th annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

PACE RUSH SERIES TO CLOSE OUT 2021 THIS WEEKEND AT LERNERVILLE'S "STEEL CITY STAMPEDE"; FLYNN'S TIRE/BORN2RUN LUBRICANTS LATE MODEL TOUR; RUSH SPRINT TITLE TO BE DECIDED; HOVIS SPORTSMAN MOD TOUR HIGHLIGHTED BY WATERSTONE MORTGAGE ENGINE GIVEAWAY
By Mike Leone

(October 12, 2021) -


(Sarver, PA)...The Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC will have a tripleheader of action this weekend (October 14-16) at Lernerville Speedway for the "Steel City Stampede". The Flynn's Tire/Born2Run Lubricants RUSH Late Model Tour finale will lead the way along with the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Sportsman Modified Touring Series, and the RUSH Sprint Cars in an Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series special. The event will be broadcast live on LernervilleTV.

Practice will be held Thursday night (October 14) with heat races for all divisions on Friday night followed by the conclusion of the events on Saturday. Group qualifying for the RUSH Late Models will be at 7 p.m. on Friday followed by racing at 7:30. On Saturday, racing will begin early at 4 p.m. The Chevrolet Performance 602 RUSH Sportsman Modified engine drawing presented by Waterstone Mortgage will take place on Saturday. The rain date is Sunday.

"This is always a great way to end our season," stated RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "The RUSH championships annually comes down to this event. Our Late Model racers are always excited to get the chance to compete at Lernerville. The car counts have always been strong and the racing at Lernerville is always some of the best of the season. The Sportsman Modifieds have been given the opportunity to race numerous times over the past eight seasons at Lernerville. Lernerville was a very important part of getting our RUSH Sprint division off the ground in 2018, and their races this year at the track have been tremendous. And we can't wait to award one lucky RUSH Sportsman Modified racer with the richest giveaway in the history of our Series with a $9,000 complete Chevrolet Performance 602 Crate Engine package thanks to sponsor Waterstone Mortgage."

This year’s “Steel City Stampede” will be the 13th edition of this huge event that includes many of the region’s racing divisions all showcased in this end of the season blowout. There has only been one repeat RUSH Late Model winner and it took until 2019 to happen; past winners include Josh Holtgraver (2009), Bryan Force (2010), Butch Lambert (2011), Max Blair (2012, 2019 & 2020), Dennis Lunger, Jr. (2013), Chad Ruhlman (2014), Jacob Hawkins (2015), John Mollick (2016), John Waters (2017), and Colton Flinner (2018). With the majority of those racers not expected to be in competition, there's a high likelihood of a new winner.

Saturday's event will pay $2,000 to-win. There will also be a $200 to-win, $150 to-start non-qualifier. FK Rod Ends "Shock the Clock Qualifying and Beat the Heat" will be utilized on Friday night for the Late Models meaning the fastest qualifier will receive $100 and all heat race winners will earn $25. The pole position Sunoco Dash and last chance B main(s) will kickoff Saturday's program.

Virginia's Kyle Hardy, the $5,000 Pace National Weekly Series Championship, leads the Tour back to Lernerville for the second time in 2021 and will clinch the $12,000 title this weekend. Hardy, who has seven wins and an impressive 14 podium finishes in 16 races, has a 53-point lead on the surging Joe Martin. After starting the season off with three finishes outside the top 10 in the first six races, Martin has come on strong with 10 straight top six finishes. Martin has also rattled off five straight podium finishes including his first Tour win in seven years at the September 11 Sharon event. Three-time champion, Jeremy Wonderling, is third in points as his bid for four straight titles will be unsuccessful. After a stretch of three wins in six races between May 15 and July 3, Wonderling has been shutout of victory lane since.

Michael Duritsky, Jr. is fourth in points with four top five and eight top 10 finishes. Duritsky won his first career Lernerville race on July 23 as part of the "RUSH Summer Showcase", which was a Pace Weekly Series special. Bud Watson, Ryan Frazee, John Waters, J.J. Mazur, Kyle Lukon, and Logan Zarin round out the top 10 in points.

Meanwhile, the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will join the "Steel City Stampede" for the eighth consecutive year in an $800 to-win event. Greg Martin won the inaugural race in 2014, while Nick Ritchey won his first ever at Lernerville in 2015. Rocky Kugel topped what was at the time in 2016 was a record field of 29 cars. Steve Slater won the 2017 show, while teen Blaze Myers scored a popular first Tour win in 2018 after coming out of the B main to also win the "Futures Cup" title. In 2019, Eric Gabany was victorious, while last year Chas Wolbert capped off his championship season by becoming the seventh different "Steel City Stampede" winner in as many years! Will there be an eighth different winner this year!?

The RUSH Sportsman Mods have made one visit this season to Lernerville on July 23 for the "RUSH Summer Showcase" when Wolbert topped a 25-car field. Wolbert has already clinched his second straight Hovis Weekly Series title worth $3,500. Tony Tatgenhorst currently leads the Hovis Tour points by nine over J.C. Boyer with Rob Kristyak just one-point back. Wolbert and Kole Holden are tied for fourth in points.

Westfall runner-up in I-96’s Roll the Dice; BOSS finale at Waynesfield next

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (October 11, 2021) – Although the two-day blockbuster was ultimately cut to one, losing Friday’s opener to an unexpected visit from Mother Nature, Roll the Dice weekend at I-96 Speedway went on as planned welcoming the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) and Great Lakes Traditional Sprints (GLTS) for a full out brawl on Saturday, October 9. Westfall, pilot for Ray Marshall Motorsports and current BOSS Series point leader, participated in the highly-touted event and finished on the podium, just shy of his second BOSS victory of 2021.

Westfall, driver of the Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/”Bumblebee Express” No. 33M sprint car, finished second in the Roll the Dice finale, leading much of the main event before losing the top spot to eventual winner, Max Adams.

A threat the entire evening, Westfall kicked-off the program with the seventh-fastest time during qualifying time trials, next transferring through his respective heat race to line up second on the feature grid.

“It feels good to be on the podium again. I think we were good enough to win…we just came up a little short,” Westfall said, who will work to clinch a second BOSS title in three seasons. “ I can’t thank Ray Marshall and the entire team enough for their hard work and support this season. I know we are good enough to compete with the best on any given night and we owe all of that to Ray. We’ll try to end the BOSS season on a high note Saturday at Waynesfield.”

Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will continue their 2021 campaign with the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series season finale at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio, on Saturday, October 16. The Forest, Ohio-based racing operation will enter Waynesfield with a 79-point advantage over Isaac Chapple in the BOSS title chase.

Whittall 11th against Greatest Show On Dirt in Port Royal’s Nittany Showdown finale

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

VINCENTOWN, N.J. (October 11, 2021) – In perhaps his top performance of the season, Vincentown, New Jersey’s Justin Whittall put on a show Saturday night in Port Royal Speedway’s Nittany Showdown finale and nearly found himself inside the top-ten with the best sprint car drivers in the world, ultimately completing his 2021 campaign with an 11th-place score against the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series; it was Whittall’s first-ever feature start against the Greatest Show On Dirt.

Impressive, nonetheless, Whittall, driver of the JW Motorsports, JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Brotherton Brewing Company, Beechwood Landscape Architecture and Construction LLC, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, FK Rod Ends, Stilo Helmets, Keizer Aluminum Wheels, Enterprise, Ground Blind Boys, No. 67 sprint car, earned his 11th-place outcome from 20th on the grid, tying ten-time Series champion, Donny Schatz, for the evening’s hard charger award (Schatz declared hard charger with his overall finish being higher than Whittall’s).

Whittall was in prime position to potentially duplicate his Saturday outcome on Friday, but contact with the outside retaining wall during the evening’s Last Chance Showdown erased all potential. Despite the fact, Whittall made up for his hiccup and performed to the max the following evening.

“I’m really, really proud of everyone involved. It’s kinda sad to say our season is done, but to end our year on a note like that is pretty incredible. We know we have the equipment and the speed to contend with whoever is on the track…we just need to put together all of the pieces.” Whittall said, a former Williams Grove Speedway winner. “I can’t thank my partners enough for all of their dedication this season. It’s been an up and down year for us, but we had our shining moments and I’m sure we made them proud. Here’s to an awesome year…we’ll see everyone in 2022.”

Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports will dive head first into the off-season and immediately begin preparations for the coming season. An update pertaining to Whittall’s 2022 schedule will be posted when it becomes available.

“Thank you, everyone,” Whittall added. “To the fans, my family, our partners…I couldn’t do it without you, so thank you.”

Dietrich opens Nittany Showdown with top-ten; Lincoln finale ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (October 11, 2021) – It was a hard-fought weekend in the Keystone State for Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich, and although the 2021 Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek champion did not attain another victory against the Greatest Show On Dirt, Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing performed well and highlighted the two-day Nittany Showdown at Port Royal’s “Speed Palace” with a top-ten performance, climbing seven spots to do so in Friday’s weekend opener.

Dietrich, driver of Gary Kauffman’s Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, Graver’s Garage, Racer’s New & Used Parts, No. 48 sprint car, finished tenth in Friday’s $10,000-to-win spectacle, not deterred by his ninth row starting position.

In fact, although he missed the top-ten in Saturday’s finale, Dietrich still did his best to put on a passing clinic, first transfering through the evening’s Last Chance Showdown before climbing from 24th to finish 16th. Dietrich was forced to compete in the last chance race after missing a transfer spot in his respective heat race.

“It wasn’t exactly the weekend we were working for, but we’ll take these results and move forward. You’re not going to find fields as tough as this very often, so I wouldn’t say we are completely disappointed,” Dietrich said pertaining to the weekend. “Hats off to the team. It’s been a long season, but they never stopped working. Hats off to the fans, too. Pennsylvania has the best race fans in the world and if it wasn’t for them, none of this would be a reality. We’ll keep digging and work to end this season on top.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with the Lincoln Speedway season finale on Saturday, October 16. “Double D” has one Lincoln win to his credit this season, earning his trip to the front stretch victory lane platform on March 13.

2021 Championships: Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek

Zearfoss highlights Port Royal homecoming with impressive 12 spot rally Friday

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (October 11, 2021) – The “Jonestown Jet” Brock Zearfoss was welcomed back to Port Royal Speedway with open arms over the weekend, joining his fellow World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series travelers for the two-day Nittany Showdown on Friday and Saturday, October 8-9. Awarding a total winner’s share equaling $25,000, the Nittany Showdown featured the World of Outlaws in Pennsylvania for the final time this season.

The two-day showcase resulted in a consistent effort for the Jonestown, Pennsylvania-native and former Port Royal Speedway track champion, eventually capping the two-day affair with an average finish of 12th, kicking off the weekend with an 11th-place score on Friday followed by a 13th-place score on Saturday. Impressive to say, Zearfoss was forced to earn his consistent results the hard way, first climbing 12 positions on Friday, then climbing another pair of spots on Saturday. Zearfoss’ Friday outcome was the product of the Last Chance Showdown, finishing third to qualify for the $10,000-to-win A-Main.

In all, Zearfoss’ results were sound enough to keep the World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year contender ninth in the overall driver standings.

“It felt good to be home, that’s for sure,” Zearfoss expressed, who owns 21 top-tens on the World of Outlaws campaign trail this season. “We’ve turned a lot of laps at Port Royal so we were pretty excited to have the opportunity to get back there and race. There’s nothing we would have loved more than to win in front of our home fans and partners, but I think our results speak for themselves. The guys worked hard all weekend. We get to spend a few extra days at home before we have to leave again so we’re going to suck that up, for sure.”

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will take a weekend off before resuming the 2021 season on Friday, October 22, with the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas.

Mid-Race Wreck Ends Kalib Henry’s Cotton Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA: Fresh off of the Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals triumph, Kalib Henry and the McColloch Motorsports team linked back up with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour on Friday night in Hanford, CA where a mid-race accident would end the team’s Cotton Classic early.

“Friday night was an interesting night,” Henry said. “We ended up running the Chili Bowl format with the track having timing issues, and we actually raced really well in our heat and qualifier.”

With timing issues at the track forcing SCCT officials to go to a ‘draw’ show Chili Bowl format, the Mather, CA driver would line up fifth in the first heat race of the night.

Able to race the McColloch’s RV Repair/Davis Truck Painting/Driven Homes, Inc. backed No. 17 to a third-place finish, Henry would move into a qualifier where he took the green flag from the third starting position.

Looking to gain as many points as possible to give himself a better feature event starting position, Henry would finish third and find himself in the fourth row of the 30-lap Cotton Classic feature event.

Working his way forward in the early goings of the feature, a lap 12 restart would prove detrimental to Henry and the McColloch Motorsports team. When the race went green, contact to Henry’s machine would ensue causing too much damage for the team to repair in the work area, and it would bring Henry’s night to an end.

“It was an unfortunate way for our night to end,” Henry said. “These guys all work really hard on this car, and it is a shame we tore some equipment up. Thankful for the opportunity, and looking forward to finale race together for the year in Stockton in a few weeks.”

McColloch Motorsports would like to thank McColloch’s RV Repair, Davis Truck Painting, Driven Homes, Inc., ART Speed Equipment, RE Technologies, Hansen Machine, ADCO Driveline, and Gary Morgan Graphics for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 14, Wins: 1, Top-5’s: 6, Top-10’s- 8

ON TAP: McColloch Motorsports and Henry take a couple weeks off before finishing their season off November 6th in Stockton, CA.

 

 

Myers Jr Continues to Gain Valuable 410ci Experience in Hanford, CA

PETERSEN MEDIA: With the season quickly winding down in California, Joel Myers Jr continues to challenge himself and take on the best out west in 410ci action. Friday and Saturday night, Myers Jr was in action in Hanford, CA where he made his 9th and 10th career starts with the bigger engine package.

“We have a really talented pool of 410ci drivers in California, and to gain 410ci experience by racing with these guys is really the best of both worlds,” Myers said. “I’m learning with the best out here and getting more laps with the 410ci at the same time.”

The weekend kicked off on Friday night with ‘Jr’ getting his weekend off to a nice start as he timed the All About Fire Protection/Dirt Dudes/Amerikote backed No. 46jr mount in fourth fastest in time trials.

Looking very strong in heat race competition, Jr would continue to impress as he flexed his muscle and picked up the heat race win going away. By way of the win, the Sebastopol, CA driver locked into the Dash where his fourth-place finish put him in the second row of the Cotton Classic feature event.

When the race came to life, Myers Jr would mix it up with some of the best out west as he hung inside the Top-5 as he worked around the Keller Auto Speedway.

A couple of late restarts would see Myers Jr slip out of the Top-five, then following the race’s final restart contact with another car would get him out of shape as he slipped back and went on to finish 13th.

Though disappointed with the end result, Myers was eager to return to action on Saturday night for the King of the West Series’ Morrie Williams Tribute.

Going out late in time trials, the slick surface would hamper Jr’s qualifying time as he would time in 20th fastest. Lining up seventh in his heat race, where a sixth-place finish would line him up seventeenth in the first of two 20-lap feature events.

Jockeying for positions as he searched around the speedway, Myers would end the first feature with a 19th place finish, which would place him in the fifth position for the second of the Twin-20’s.

Just as he did on Friday night, Jr would get off to a nice start as he ran inside the Top-5. Battling up front, a restart would prove costly to the 15-year-old pilot as he would not get the jump he needed and slipped back a few positions.

Falling out of the Top-10, Myers would give it as all to get back in though would come up just short as he capped the weekend off with an 11th place result.

“We have some good speed in our 410ci, and I am getting comfortable,” Myers Jr added. “When you race against these guys, you have to run perfect laps with no mistakes, so I have some things to work on, but I’m enjoying the challenge.”

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.

ON TAP: Myers Jr will stay close to home on Saturday night as he will battle with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour at Petaluma Speedway.

Sanders Nets Trio of Top-5’s in Hanford, CA and Claims Morrie Williams Tribute Championship

PETERSEN MEDIA: Reuniting with the Works Limited team in Hanford, CA over the weekend, Justin Sanders would run fourth in Friday night’s Cotton Classic before recording third and fifth during Saturday’s Morrie Williams Tribute Twin-20 feature events and claiming the event championship.

“It was another really good weekend for this team,” Justin Sanders said. “We were really in the mix during every feature event we ran, and although we didn’t pick up a feature event win, it was cool to claim the Morrie Williams Tribute overall championship.”

Sanders’ weekend kicked off on Friday night at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA as he took part in the Kings of Thunder portion of the Cotton Classic. Timing in third fastest in qualifying time trials, the Aromas, CA driver would power his way to a heat race win, and back that up with a win in the Dash.

Getting off to the early lead when the feature event went green, Sanders looked very stout out front as he looked to pick up his 21st win of the season. Leading most of the race, contact while battling for the lead late in the race would see him slip back to fourth.

Once he got the Paul Silva prepared No. 57 machine gathered back up, Sanders would salvage his race with a podium finish as he was able to get back to third when the checkered flag flew.

Saturday night the King of the West Series would take over as Keller Auto Speedway played host for the 2nd Annual Morrie Williams Tribute. Running a unique format that culminated with two 20-lap feature events, Sanders got the night kicked off by again timing in third fastest in qualifying time trials.

Racing his way to another heat race win, Sanders moved into the Sunnyvalley Bacon Dash where his fifth-place finish slotted him in the third row of the opening feature event.

Working his way forward, Sanders would get into the second position as he battled with race leader, Dominic Scelzi, as he has done on so many occasions amidst a great year for both drivers.

The race’s final restart gave Sanders one final shot at Scelzi however contact from the back would see Sanders get sideway on the front stretch as he would slip back to third, where he would finish.

With the field inverted for the final 20-lap feature event of the night, Sanders would take the green flag from the 20th starting position. One of the few that was able to slice and dice their way through the field, Sanders turned in a masterful performance.

Quickly working into the Top-10, Sanders would continue to march his way to the front. Though with 20-laps clicking off quickly, Sanders’ march would be halted as he got to fifth when the final checked flag waived.

With a finish of third in the first feature, and fifth in the second race, Sanders would have the point total that would crown him the overall champion of the 2nd Annual Morrie Williams Tribute.

“I really want to thank Kevin for continuing to provide a great opportunity, and Paul and the guys for always putting a race winning car on the track underneath me,” Sanders added.

Justin and his team would like to thank North County Plastering, Alkaline88, Andy’s Construction, Roadside 24hr Service, Wicked Cushion, Roger’s Diner, Factory Kahne, BG Labels and Tee’s, Walker Performance Filtration, Dixon and Son Tires, Ernie’s Service Center, East Lake Village, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., DMI, Keizer Wheels, Wings Unlimited, Ti64 Titanium, AIS Heating and Sheet Metal, Fred Lint and Family, JonSan Racing, Sandblast Service, G&N Construction, Steitz Towing, Durden Construction, Ernie’s Service Center, and Steve Duppman Racing for their continued support in 2021.

ON TAP: Sanders will return to action at the upcoming Trophy Cup.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-55, Wins-20, Top 5’s-35, Top-10’s-39

Cox and C&M Motorsports Sixth at Cotton Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA- Making the trip to Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA on Friday night for the annual Cotton Classic with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour, Justyn Cox would have a strong outing as he capped his night off with a sixth-place finish.

“We had a pretty good night,” Justyn Cox said. “We got up to fourth, and I think we could have finished on the podium but a late restart kind of shook things up and we got shuffled back.”

With timing and scoring issues arising at the track, Sprint Car Challenge Tour officials opted to use the Chili Bowl Draw format for racing action on this night.

Lining up seventh in his heat, Cox would gain valuable passing points as he worked his way forward and tallied a fifth-place finish in his heat race. Moving into a qualifier, the Clarksburg, CA driver lined the Berco Redwood/Barry Lumber, Inc./Legacy Specialties entry up on the pole.

Losing the drag race into turn one and two, Cox would slip back to second, where he would finish, and ultimately find himself in the fifth row to kick off the 30-lap Cotton Classic feature event.

Gridding the field from 10th, Cox would slowly work his way forward as his car would get stronger as the laps clicked off. Jumping into the top-five, Cox would make a late race move to take over the fourth spot as he chased after to lead trio.

A yellow on the 25th lap would bunch the field back up, and unfortunately break Cox’s momentum but it would put him back on the leaders bumpers with just five laps left in the race.

When the green flag replaced the yellow, Cox would not get the jump he had hoped for, and it cost him a couple of positions. Slipping back to sixth, Cox would be unable to get the two positions back as he closed his Cotton Classic out with a sixth-place finish.

“Late in the race we really got moving and I hated to see that caution with five to go,” Cox said. “Unfortunately, I didn’t get a good jump and we lost a few spots, but still happy with how the car felt in the feature. Hoping we can continue to run well as he check into Petaluma Speedway for another SCCT event. Thanks to Cody, Mandi, and everyone that helps this C&M Motorsports team out.”

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

ON TAP: Cox and C&M Motorsports will get right back to action with the SCCT as they head to Petaluma Speedway on Saturday night.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-28, Wins-2, Top 5’s-6, Top 10’s-18

Swanson Leads All 100 Laps at Toledo

In the Doran Racing USAC Silver Crown Car

To Earn His Sixth Series Championship

TOLEDO, Ohio, Oct. 12 — As has been the case many times in the past in sports car racing, Lebanon, Ohio’s Doran Racing played a major role in motorsports history Sunday afternoon. This time it was USAC Silver Crown action instead of sports car racing, and the setting was the half-mile asphalt oval of Toledo Speedway instead of a road course. But history was made as Kody Swanson led all 100 laps of the USAC Silver Crown season finale in the Doran Racing No. 77 to earn an unprecedented sixth series drivers’ championship and stretch his career series win streak to a record 34.

Earlier in the day Swanson was the fastest of 22 qualifiers in the Doran No. 77, which is a Beast with a Lanci-prepared Ford engine, to earn his 36th series Fatheadz Eyewear pole, another series record. Besides giving sponsors Glenn Farms of Woodland,Ga., Lykins Energy Solutions, TJ Forged, FK Rod Ends, K&N Filters, Eibach Springs, DMI, and Tel Tac Oval Track Products more exposure, winning the pole gave Swanson three bonus points in the drivers’ championship, which he led by only a single point over Logan Seavey of Sutter, Calif., going into the season finale.

But the Hemelgarn Racing/Super Fitness Rollie Beale Classic was not without its nail-biters for Swanson, a native of Kingsburg, Calif., who now resides in the Indianapolis area.

The first issue occurred right before the race, when the team suspected that the No. 77’s right-front tire might be leaking air. The rules stipulate that if a tire is changed between qualifying and the race, the car must start at the rear of the field. Swanson has come from the rear before, but that’s harder and more perilous, as the chances of getting caught up in an accident increase.

The team’s cooler in the pits was dumped of its beverages and the tire placed inside in the hopes a water bubble would show where air was escaping from the tire. None was found, so the crew mounted that tire on a new wheel, put it back on the car, and hoped for the best as Swanson took his position at the head of the field for the start. As it turned out their prayers were answered, as the Hoosier tire didn’t cause any problems during the race.

“I was worried it would go soft while we waited under that red flag, but it didn’t,” Swanson noted later.

David Byrne of Shullsburg, Wis., ran second to Swanson for the first 61 laps on Sunday. Bobby Santos III of Franklin, Mass., passed Byrne for second in Turn 4 on lap 62 and chased Swanson the rest of the way.

Their challenges weren’t the only issue Swanson faced. Another one developed quickly on lap 83. Annie Breidinger of Hillsborough, Calif., spun in Turn 3 in front of the leaders while running 13th to cause the second yellow flag, and they all checked up to try to miss her. Unfortunately Tyler Roahrig of Mishawaka, Ind., who was running eighth, wasn’t able to avoid her. Unfortunately Swanson wasn’t able to miss Roahrig either, and he hit the tail tank of Roahrig’s car with the left front of the No. 77. The contact bent a lower radius rod and the noseplate of Swanson’s car, making the steering about 60 degrees off.

During the ensuing four laps under yellow team owner Kevin Doran and Swanson’s spotter and wife, Jordan, assessed the damage from the pits and the spotters stand, respectively, and told Swanson over the team’s radios that he’d be able to finish the race. The green waved again on lap 88, and Swanson was forced to quickly adapt.

Santos could smell blood in the water. Santos was only one-tenth of a second behind Swanson for two laps following the restart, but he wasn’t able to make a pass. Swanson rebuilt his advantage as he learned how to drive the car with its compromised steering. He had a 1.135-second margin of victory over Santos at the checkered flag.

“It [the contact] made it tricky,” Swanson said later. “The car was twitching and unstable. For a couple of laps I was floundering, but then I figured it out. I had to; it was win or lose.”

Byrne kept within one or two-tenths of a second behind Swanson for the first 29 laps, but then Swanson was able to increase his lead. He had built it up to over 1 second by lap 42, over 2 seconds by lap 54, and over 3 seconds by lap 60. After Santos passed Byrne for second Swanson’s lead ranged from 1 to 2 seconds despite having to pass lapped cars. Santos was able to close to within one-tenth of a second right after Swanson’s contact with Roahrig before Swanson was once again able to increase his advantage.

“There were a lot of strong cars in the field,” Swanson noted. “I knew Santos would be there at the end.”

Brian Tyler of Parma, Mich., finished third followed by Byrne and Davey Hamilton Jr. of Meridian, Idaho. The latter was the race’s hard charger.

There were two yellows and one red flag during the race. The first yellow flew on lap 19 when Kyle Robbins of New Castle, Ind., lost his left-rear wheel on the frontstretch. The red flew on lap 38 when Jim Anderson of Joliet, Ill. spun on the backstretch. Travis Welpott of Pendleton, Ind., clipped him and flipped on the backstretch, ending up in Turn 3. The second yellow was the one on lap 83 that damaged Swanson’s car. Luckily all the drivers walked away from the accidents.

Swanson set the fastest lap of the race on lap 30 with a time of 15.569 seconds. His pole-winning lap was a 15.064.

He has now won this particular race five times in five different cars: two different Hampshire Racing cars; a Team 6R entry, the Nolen Racing No. 20, and the Doran Racing No. 77.

Swanson earned three bonus points for leading the most laps and 70 for winning the race. In the end he won the drivers’ championship by 34 points. The top-five finishers in the drivers’ championship for 2021 were Swanson with 574 points; Seavey with 540; Justin Grant of Avon, Ind., with 394; Byrne with 392 and Shane Cottle of Kansas, Ill. with 386.

“Winning the series championship for the sixth time is really cool,” Swanson said. “I’m so grateful. I drove for three different race teams in Silver Crown this year, and to win it all in the end is really cool.

“I’m thankful to the Doran Racing team for all their hard work,” he continued. “Everybody on this team went the extra mile and gave 120 percent effort.”

The race was streamed live on FloRacing.com.

Swanson’s focus this year was to get more experience in different types of race cars. This coming weekend he’ll drive a Doran Racing asphalt modified in the 50th Lucas Oil Winchester 400 at Winchester (Ind.) Speedway. He’ll end the month sharing the Doran Racing 2008 Ford GT Mk 7 with Brad Jaeger of Charlottesville, Va., in the Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) Classic 24 and Daytona Historics at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

Crockett Scores October Victory for Third Consecutive Season

Inside Line Promotions - POCOLA, Okla. (Oct. 11, 2021) - Roger Crockett earned a triumph in October for the third straight year when he swept an ASCS Sooner Region and ASCS Mid-South Region event at Tri-State Speedway last Saturday.

"I won my first ever ASCS National race there in Paul Silva's car a long time ago," he said. "I don't even know what year it would have been. It was probably 2002 or 2003.

"I like that it worked out we could go run there on Saturday. It's a close track and a really fun race track. We always like going to that place."

Crockett maneuvered from fourth to win both a heat race and the main event.

"We drew a good heat race and won that from fourth," he said. "Our car was really, really good in the heat. It looked like Blake (Hahn) and I had the fastest cars. On the first start (of the feature) we came out first and second, but that start didn't go. On the start that went I was able to get into second right away. We got into traffic and I was battling with Tim Crawley. I was taking the lead and he got together with a lapped car so that brought out a caution on Lap 7.

"Our car was really good. It was fantastic. I never saw another car again. It was our race to lose in traffic. We got into traffic a few times, but there were quite a few yellows. The cushion was propped against the wall so that made it adventurous, but it was a smooth night."

The triumph was the second of the season with the ASCS Sooner Region and the first of the year with the ASCS Mid-South Region for Crockett.

"We haven't raced a whole lot, but the races we do run we want to run up front," he said. "I think it's really important to run up front whether it's a national race or a regional race. I'm as confident as I've been with driving the car and the handling of the car. I hate for the season to end and I can't wait to get started next year. I feel really good about where we are at. The speed we have is what I expect us to have."

Crockett returns to action this Friday and Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track in Fort Worth, Texas, for the Texas Throwback with the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series. It marks his first time competing at the track since Nov. 1, 2019, when he recorded a career-best run of seventh.

Stay tuned to Crockett's social media accounts for a unique throwback scheme as he plans to participate in the event's Best Appearing Car contest as well.

Williamson Earns Hard Charger Award After Run From 14th to Second

Inside Line Promotions - POCOLA, Okla. (Oct. 11, 2021) - Garet Williamson is 2-for-2 in his career on earning second-place finishes at Tri-State Speedway.

The Bryant Paver Motorsports driver hustled from 14th to second during the ASCS Sooner Region and ASCS Mid-South Region event last Saturday. The performance earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

The night began with Williamson placing fifth in a heat race, placing him 14th in points to line up on the outside of the seventh row in the main event.

"The track was gut slick in the heat races," he said. "I was on the bottom and spun the tires down the frontstretch. I think we were in sixth going into turn one. The outside lane just drove by everybody.

"I knew we'd be fast in the A Main though. We made some changes. The top got so treacherous. The curb was gnarly and that defined whether you'd be fast or not. There weren't too many people up there. They'd enter off it or slide into it. Not too many people would commit to it and we did."

Running on the ragged edge paid dividends as Williamson rallied into the runner-up position and had a pair of late restarts with the leader right in front of him.

"We had two restarts in the final few laps," he said. "The first one we made a lap and the yellow came back out. The second one I could have thrown an absolute haymaker into turn one, but I didn't want to push the issue. I was hoping he'd bobble a little bit. He bobbled once in turns three and four and I really made up some ground, but was just not close enough to throw a slider at the end."

Williamson will take this weekend off before wrapping up the season Oct. 22-23 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., during the 34th annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

Dominic Scelzi Wins Trio of Races During 36th Annual Cotton Classic

Inside Line Promotions - HANFORD, Calif. (Oct. 11, 2021) - Dominic Scelzi soaked up the success of another stout weekend as he picked up a trio of feature victories during the 36th annual Cotton Classic to push his season win total to 21 triumphs.

"I'm over the moon happy," he said. "We had a great weekend and are closing in on 23 wins this season, which would give me 50 career. If I can hit 27 wins, which I know is a long shot, that would match the number of wins I earned in my first nine years of racing."

Scelzi swept the night at Keller Auto Speedway on Friday, winning the Kings of Thunder 410ci winged sprint car feature as well as the Sprint Car Challenge Tour main event.

Scelzi qualified ninth quickest and placed fifth in a heat race to open the 410 action. That lined him up on the inside of the fifth row in the A Main.

"We didn't qualify very good in the 410," he said. "We were a little bit tight. Then in the heat race the track was fairly slick, but really dirty. We didn't get a very good start and fell to sixth. We got back to fifth and finished there.

"In the feature we picked someone off every couple of laps. I got to fourth and then (D.J.) Netto and (Justin) Sanders hit each other. I was able to get to second. I felt good prior to that, but that helped out a ton. We restarted second and I felt like I tricked Bud (Kaeding). I got him to run the bottom in turns one and two. I ripped the top and hit the bottom in turns three and four to drive by him with a few laps remaining."

Scelzi pulled away for the victory to add to his lead in the Kings of Thunder standings. He was just as efficient during 360 competition as he advanced from seventh to third place in a heat race and from fifth to win a qualifier. That started him on the outside of the front row in the main event.

"The scoring loop went out and they weren't able to qualify us so they lined the heats up by pill draw," he said. "We did really well and passed some guys. In the qualifier we methodically worked our way through there. That put us starting second in the feature. The race went green and the polesitter beat me into turn one. He missed the bottom into turns three and four and I got by him. We ran the top and bottom throughout the race. I got through traffic pretty good. I felt really, really good and we were able to lead all 30 laps to get the win."

Saturday started with similar success for Scelzi, who timed in fourth quick in the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series qualifying. A heat race win was followed by a dash triumph, which put Scelzi on the pole for the feature.

"We went out 18th in qualifying and the track had slowed down tremendously," he said. "I was a little worried about getting a good time. I felt we had a hell of a lap. We got into the cushion perfectly and didn't spin the tires where the cushion fell off the edge.

"In the heat race we passed Kyle (Hirst) around the top in turns one and two and then got to the bottom in turns three and four. We were around the bottom the rest of the heat race. For the dash we got put on the pole, which is awesome. We won that and started on the pole of the first feature.

"I ran the middle for most of the race, but I was able to run the top, the bottom, everywhere. The track was really slick and wide. There were three lanes of racing and we used all of them."

Scelzi led the distance during the first of twin 20-lap main events. He was credited with 20th in the second feature, which was completely inverted. Scelzi exited the weekend having virtually locked up the series championship.

Scelzi was also strong in the 360 portion of the night, setting quick time during qualifying, winning a heat race and finishing second in the dash. The main event wasn't run because of a medical emergency in the pits.

This weekend will be dormant for Scelzi, whose next event is the Trophy Cup Oct. 21-23 at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif.

Abreu finds top-five on multiple occasions in busy weekend at Keller Auto Speedway

Date: Friday, October 8th Event: 36th Annual Cotton Classic Series: Sprint Car Challenge Tour 360 Sprint Cars Track: Keller Auto Speedway at Kings Fairgrounds (Hanford, California) Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 4th (6th)

Date: Saturday, October 9th Event: Morrie Williams Memorial/ Kenny Takeuchi Tribute Series: King of the West/NARC 410 Sprint Cars Track: Keller Auto Speedway at Kings Fairgrounds (Hanford, California) Rico Abreu A-Main Finishes (Start): NARC Feature 1: 4th (2nd) NARC Feature 2: 14th (16th)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (October 11, 2021) - It was a wild weekend on the West Coast for St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu, and although the recent All Star Circuit of Champions 4-Crown Nationals champion was able to enjoy his return to California soil, there was little time to relax, as Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing had to quickly prepare for a stout weekend at Keller Auto Speedway.

Abreu, driver of the Rowdy Energy/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Wiser Agency/Salty’s BBQ/Self Made Racing/XYZ Machine/No. 24 sprint car, entered each of the programs hosted at Keller Auto Speedway on October 8-9, first entering the Sprint Car Challenge Tour’s 36th Annual Cotton Classic on Friday, followed by the King of the West/NARC Morrie Williams Memorial/Kenny Takeuchi Tribute on Saturday.

When the dust settled in Hanford, Abreu found himself with a pair of top-five outcomes, opening action with a fourth-place score in the Cotton Classic on Friday, quickly followed by another fourth-place score in the first of two KWS/NARC features on Saturday. Abreu tried his best to finish the weekend three-for-three within the top-five, but the second feature inversion made it difficult to overcome; Abreu went on to finish 14th after starting 16th.

“It was a fun weekend in Hanford and I’m proud of our results, but all eyes are on the Trophy Cup,” Rico Abreu said. “We made some Trophy Cup history in 2019, so it’s our goal to do that again.”

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with the Abreu Vineyards Trophy Cup presented by Rudeen Racing at Tulare’s Thunderbowl Raceway on October 21-23. The three-day blockbuster will feature three complete programs each awarding $4,000 to the main event winner. The weekend’s overall points champion will receive a $15,000 bonus.

Certainly no stranger to Tulare’s Trophy Cup, Abreu was the 2019 event champion, actually sweeping the entire three-day program to earn $26,000. Abreu’s history making Trophy Cup performance had never been accomplished before. He won main events from fifth, tenth, and 17th.

Wilson Ties Season-Best All Star Result During Finale at Fremont

Inside Line Promotions - FREMONT, Ohio (Oct. 11, 2021) - Greg Wilson wrapped up the racing season in his home state of Ohio last Saturday during the Jim & Joanne Ford Classic.

Fremont Speedway hosted the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions season-ending doubleheader, which lost Friday's opener because of wet weather. Track and series officials worked diligently to get the program in on Saturday and Wilson made the most of it.

"For as much rain as they got, Fremont and the All Stars did a great job for giving us a track we could even race on," he said. "I was really happy with how the whole night played out and that we rolled the car back into the trailer."

The Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics supported Seeling Motorsports driver went out late in qualifying and timed in 30th quickest overall, but his time ranked third in his group. It put Wilson on the outside of the front row of a heat race and he won it to transfer into a dash.

Wilson gained a position to place second in his dash. That lined him up on the outside of the second row in the A Main.

"Early in the race I felt we had a car capable of winning," he said. "We rode in third for a little bit. Between the track conditions and trying to keep all four wheels on the ground the driver gave away a spot or two. Something changed part way through the race. Something seemed like it happened. We couldn't go through the holes later in the race as well as we did earlier in the race. When it's like that it's hard to pinpoint whether the driver made a mistake or if we had something go wrong with the car."

Wilson ended with a sixth-place showing, which tied his season-best run with the All Stars. It also marked his 26th top 10 of the season.

The team is unsure of its next event with the World Finals in North Carolina tabbed as the season finale.

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 9 - Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio - Qualifying: 30; Heat race: 1 (2); Dash: 2 (3); Feature: 6 (4).

The Madman on top for TSR in Port Royal’s Nittany Showdown opener


Dates: Friday and Saturday, October 8th-9th
Event: Nittany Showdown
Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series
Track: Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pennsylvania)
Kerry Madsen A-Main Finishes (Start):
Friday: 1st (2nd)
Saturday: 4th (6th)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 11, 2021) - Kerry Madsen’s return to the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing No. 14 sprint car resulted in all but perfection, earning back-to-back top-five finishes in Port Royal Speedway’s two-day Nittany Showdown including a victory to open the weekend on Friday, October 8. Impressive, nonetheless, the victory was all but a casual walk in the park, as Madsen was forced to withstand pressure from some of the best in the business including ten-time Series champion and TSR teammate, Donny Schatz, as well as Central Pennsylvania living legend, Lance Dewease.

Madsen, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing and the No. 14/Rush Truck Centers/Advance Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Digital Ally/Sage Fruit/FloRacing/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Mobil 1/Carquest Auto Parts/J&J Auto Racing/No. 14 sprint car, led all 25 circuits of Friday’s $10,000-to-win main event, ultimately cashing in for his third World of Outlaws victory of the 2021 season.

As mentioned, the victory was far from easy for the St Marys, New South Wales, Australia-native. In fact, Madsen’s final margin of victory over Lance Dewease was 0.081 seconds; the smallest of the World of Outlaws season.

“I can’t say enough about this Tony Stewart Racing team,” Madsen said in victory lane. “I was a little bit rusty to start the night, but they kept tuning on the car and got me more and more comfortable. I was really good early in the Feature and kind of protected more so in the second half. What a fantastic car, though.”

Although unable to match his Friday night performance, Kerry Madsen closed out the 2021 Nittany Showdown at Port Royal’s “Speed Palace” with a fourth-place score on Saturday, ultimately bumping ahead two spots after winning his respective heat race.

A future schedule for Kerry Madsen and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing has yet to be determined. Any news and information pertaining to Madsen’s schedule will be released when it becomes available.

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Post Runner-Up Result During Nittany Showdown Finale

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Oct. 11, 2021) - David Gravel capped the Nittany Showdown with a career-best World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series result at Port Royal Speedway last Saturday.

The Big Game Motorsports driver maneuvered from eighth to second place, which was his 38th top five of the season with the series and his fourth podium in the last nine races.

The event began on Friday with Gravel timing in eighth quickest in his group, which started him on the outside of the second row in a heat race.

"On Night 1 we didn't qualify the way we wanted to," he said. "We were off on the race car. We went to work for the heat race and got the car a lot better. We were able to race our way into the dash."

Gravel's run from fourth to second earned a spot into the dash. Unfortunately, he pulled the second-highest number - seven - to start on the inside of the fourth row. Gravel ended eighth in the dash and lined up eighth for the A Main.

"It's hard to get going there in the fourth row," he said. "We pretty much maintained in the A Main. We weren't bad and weren't great. We just could hang around and ended up sixth."

Saturday started on the right note as Gravel set quick time during qualifying for the 17th time this season, which leads the World of Outlaws.

"The track was different to start," he said. "It was definitely faster and had more grip. In hot laps, qualifying, the heat race and even the dash the track was pretty fast. We were able to quick time and put ourselves in a good position and win the heat race. I drew another terrible pill for the dash with the seven. We weren't that great at the dash. We tried something a little different there in the feature and it worked out really good. We had a really good race car and I felt like we could pass people and make some stuff happen. It felt really good to finish on a strong note."

Gravel's runner-up result was set up by a strong second half of the race.

"The wing going back helped, but typically as the race goes on you'll want to get the wing back to chase the race track," he said. "The car liked it. I actually got the wing back too far and it was getting tricky to drive late in the race. You had to be committed to the top. It's a good thing when it's around the top and you're able to pass guys. That shows you're operating well."

Gravel remains second in the World of Outlaws standings, but the solid weekend cut the deficit to 92 points with five races remaining.

The team is off this weekend before the next World of Outlaws event on Oct. 22 at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown.

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 8 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Qualifying: 8; Heat race: 2 (4); Feature: 6 (8).

2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Fourth | 9744 points (166 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 11, 2021) - Consistency is a word very much associated with Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, and that is exactly what the team accomplished in Port Royal Speedway’s Nittany Showdown. Schatz, a ten-time Series champion and three-time main event winner thus far in 2021, finished fourth and third, respectively, in the two-day Port Royal invasion, actually challenging for a victory to open the weekend before capping his visit with a hard charge on Saturday.

Although not victorious on Friday, Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing and the No. 15/Carquest Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Sage Fruit/Digital Ally/Advance Auto Parts/Rush Truck Centers/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, was in a winning position, pressuring TSR teammate, Kerry Madsen, persistently after a lap 15 restart. In fact, the Fargo, North Dakota-native took command from Madsen twice, but each time Madsen was able to turn the car back underneath Schatz. Schatz would eventually fade the fourth.

The following evening, Schatz put on an impressive display to earn the evening’s Hard Charger Award, ultimately climbing from 12th to finish third in the $15,000-to-win Nittany Showdown finale. Schatz secured his podium placement with just two laps remaining.

“Pretty solid finish,” said Schatz. “We made some improvements and learned a lot in the Feature. We changed engines after the Heat Race and that was a good call. This team keeps digging and we’re getting better.”

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will take a weekend off before resuming the 2021 season on Friday, October 22, with the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas. Schatz will enter the one-day program fourth in the World of Outlaws driver standings, trailing defending champion and current point leader, Brad Sweet, by a certainly attainable 166 markers.

EDDIE TAFOYA JR. RECORDS HIS BEST EVER USAC/CRA QUALIFYING RESULT AT ARIZONA’S HALL OF FAME CLASSIC

(Chino Hills, CA, October 8, 2021) Eddie Tafoya Jr. notched the best qualifying effort in his brief USAC/CRA career in the “Hall of Fame Classic” last Saturday night at the Arizona Speedway. The rising star’s second fast qualifier result came just one week after he timed in fourth fastest at Perris Auto Speedway.

Tafoya and the team headed to the track south of Phoenix for the first of two races in 2021. They will be back in a month’s time for his final appearance at the track in the annual “Western World Championships.” Saturday’s race was a tune-up for that historic event for the 2019 USAC/CRA and USAC Southwest Series “Rookie of The Year.”

Being that it was one of the few times Tafoya has ever been on the Arizona Speedway and coming out fourth to last in the qualifying order, the start of the night did not sound promising. But, for anyone who was thinking along those lines, the young driver quickly doused those thoughts. He flew around the 3/8-mile clay oval in a time of 15.213. At that time, he was the quickest qualifier, but the car that came out next to last stopped the clocks just a tick faster with a 15.205.

Being second fastest qualifier on the night meant that the Chino Hills, California driver had to start sixth in the second 10 lap heat race. Once the green flag flew in the heat, Tafoya and the #51T showed speed again by moving forward to finish third. That finish combined with his qualifying time meant he would start on the inside of the third row (fifth position) in the 30-lap “Hall of Fame Classic” main event.

Soon after the green flag started the main event, Tafoya dropped back several positions. In fact, he went as far back as ninth on the sixth lap. However, the determined driver ended the backwards progression with an attention-grabbing march forward. By the end of the 10th circuit, he was up to sixth and was mounting a challenge to get into the top five.

Just before the halfway point, Tafoya wowed the large crowd on hand and the track announcer as well. With the fourth and fifth place cars battling side by side in turns three and four, he saw an opening on the inside and passed both of them in one fell swoop! Things were looking good at that point as he was one of the fastest cars on the track. However, disaster set in on the back stretch less than a lap later. One of the cars Tafoya had passed got back by him. As they raced down the backstretch, they touched wheels. The contact sent Tafoya careening into the crashwall. The clatter into the concrete caused rear end damage to the car and knocked him out of the race with a 14th place finish.

While the 14th place finish was a huge disappointment, there was a very bright spot coming out of Arizona. Despite missing four series races earlier this year, Tafoya broke into the top 10 in USAC/CRA points for the first time in 2021. In fact, he is up to ninth in the championship standings and is only 22-points out of eighth.

Tafoya is no longer the “Best Kept Secret” in the USAC/CRA Series. His recent top finishes at Perris Auto Speedway and top qualifying efforts have made competitors and fans take notice. It is setting the table nicely for what is going to be a very interesting season in 2022.

While 2022 looks very promising, there is still business to take care of in 2021. Up next will be a race on October 23rd at Perris Auto Speedway. That will be the final tune up for the “25th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals” on November 4th, 5th, and 6th at Perris. One week after that, he will wrap up the 2021 campaign at the Arizona Speedway in the “Western World Championships.”

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

Tafoya and his team would like to thank the following sponsors for being a part of the 2021 racing campaign. Specialty Fasteners, BR Performance, DRC Chassis, Ryder Racing Engines, Benic Enterprises, Simpson, and Bell. If you or your company would like to become a part of the team in 2021, please give them a call or send an Email to the contact information at the top of this press release.

Amantea Advances Into Skyscraper Spectacular Main Event at Spirit Auto Center Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - SWEDESBORO, N.J. (Oct. 8, 2021) - Joey Amantea took part in the Danny Serrano Skyscraper Spectacular last weekend at Spirit Auto Center Speedway, where he qualified for the main event on Sunday among a stout field of drivers at the marquee micro sprint event.

Amantea ended with a 16th-place result and he also scored a seventh-place finish during Friday night's Winner's Classic.

"It was shaping up to be a really good weekend up until Sunday," he said. "The car had speed from the moment we unloaded and I think we might have turned a corner on our micro program."

Amantea kicked off the three-night weekend on Friday during the Winner's Classic, which he was eligible for as a result of picking up a win earlier this season. Following a pair of group qualifying sessions, in which Amantea timed in 18th and 10th, he tackled the invitational feature. Amantea advanced as high as sixth before getting caught up in an incident. He tagged the rear of the field and over the remaining 12 laps he passed 13 cars to earn the seventh finishing position.

"We were quick in time trials and it was looking like we might have had a shot to contend for the win," he said. "We got taken out running around the top five and marched right back through the field. We had a rocket ship out there."

Amantea returned to the track on Saturday to compete in a pair of heat races. He passed four cars in his first heat race to finish fourth and won a second heat from the outside of the front row. The results were good enough to lock Amantea into Sunday night's finale.

"The track conditions played right into what we wanted to do and the car reacted accordingly," he said. "We were able to get that last lock-in spot for Sunday, which definitely made me feel better about things."

Choosing to utilize a similar setup as Saturday for Sunday's Skyscraper finale, Amantea lined up for the feature in the 11th starting position. However, with track conditions different he was unable to move forward and ultimately came home 16th.

"We were off a bit in warm-ups and made a few changes to the car based on what the track showed us," he said. "Unfortunately, they ripped up the track before the feature and we were out to lunch in the feature. Everything we'd set up for went out the window and we just were no good."

Next up for Amantea will be a visit to Linda's Speedway in Jonestown, Pa., on Friday for a wingless micro sprint start.

"We know we're good on the slick and that should be a good thing for us going to Linda's," he said. "I'm really expecting to battle for a podium and be up front at the end of the night."

Starks Earns Third Triumph of Year During Final Start of the Season

Inside Line Promotions - ELMA, Wash. (Oct. 8, 2021) - Trey Starks wrapped his season up in style by winning the final sprint car event of the year in the Northwest last Saturday.

Starks led the distance of the 30-lap feature to garner his second victory of the season at Grays Harbor Raceway and his third overall.

"We had a really good night," he said. "It's a great way to end the season. That's the best I've felt at Elma on a track like that in a long time and maybe ever."

The night began with Starks setting quick time in qualifying out of the 16 drivers. He then overcame an early incident in a heat race to rally from the back of the pack to a runner-up result.

"The night went well all the way through," he said. "We were fast in qualifying and went quick time. We got tangled up on the start of the heat race and had to restart at the back, but we got back to second."

Starks drew the zero for the feature inversion, which lined him up on the pole for the main event. He capitalized on the track position and was efficient on the tricky track, lapping up to the top five en route to the impressive triumph.

"The track was pretty hooked up," he said. "The biggest part was it was pretty rough. Even though it was fast it was tough to run. You had to find the right spot on the track to not upset the car.

"We got the lead and I ran as hard as I could. I think we lapped a decent amount of cars. Our car was good all night and knowing that the car was good gave me the confidence to drive it really hard every lap. It paid off to end the season with a win."

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 2 - Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash. - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 2 (4); Feature: 1 (1).

Brian Brown Returning to Midwest Pleased With Trip to Pennsylvania

Inside Line Promotions - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (Oct. 8, 2021) - Brian Brown wrapped up his annual fall trek to Pennsylvania last weekend when he competed in the Champion Racing Oil National Open.

Brown's highlight of the weekend with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series was a 13th-place finish during the opener before he closed the event with a rare DNF on Saturday.

Oct. 1 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 6; Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 13 (12).

"It was a decent weekend there at the National Open," Brown said. "We just missed it Friday in the qualifying. I felt like I didn't do a very good job of making a perfect lap and we were sixth quick. You had to be in the top four to be on the front row in a heat race. We ran third in the heat and started 12th in the feature. We kind of bounced around and was back to 15th and then up to eighth and then ended up 13 th. We just weren't as good. The track conditions were a little different than we had been accustomed to the last month in Pennsylvania. It wasn't a bad night, but wasn't a great night."

Oct. 2 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 6; Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 25 (12).

"We went out real late and felt we cut a good lap for where we went out," Brown said. "We were third in the heat and lined up 12th again. We got three quarters of the way down the back straightaway and the car just spun around on me. I'm not sure if something broke or what, but it was so early into the corner where it happened. Getting run into it was tough to tell if something broke. It was a tough way to end our National Open. I feel bad for Daryn (Pittman) getting caught up in our mishap and his team tearing up their car also."

UP NEXT - Oct. 22 at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series

"Overall it was a real good Pennsylvania swing," Brown said. "You look back with a win, lots of top fives. I felt we were pretty solid. Danny, Nate, my dad and Ben, who was out there helping us, did a phenomenal job. I'm looking forward to getting back to the Midwest in two weeks at Lakeside for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown."

LAST CORNER PASS NETS BRODY ROA THIRD IN ARIZONA HALL OF FAME CLASSIC

(Cypress, CA, October 6, 2021) Like an NHL team pulling their goalie and scoring the game tying goal with two seconds left, Brody Roa used a last corner pass to secure third in the “Hall of Fame Classic” at the Arizona Speedway last Saturday night. The move gave the veteran driver his 10th podium finish in the first 15 USAC/CRA races in 2021.

The race, which was the next to last for the USAC/CRA Series before the track closes down due to development, served as a tune up for November’s “Western World Championships.” That two-day show will take place on the second weekend in November and just one week after the three night “25th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals” at Perris Auto Speedway.

Qualifying on the track located in Queen Creek, Arizona bit Roa when he timed in eighth fastest on the night with a lap of 15.538. His uncharacteristic night continued in the second 10-lap heat race when he ended up finishing fifth. That meant he would have to start on the inside of the fifth row in the 30-lap main event.

When the green flag signified the start of the race, Roa initially slipped back to 10th, but from that point on, the eye-catching #91R was headed forward. Even though the cars he was chasing down were getting faster as he advanced onward, the Garden Grove, California driver continued to pick off the competition. By the eighth lap, he was up to fourth and temporarily moved into third.

Once he slid back to fourth, it seemed as that was the position Roa was going to finish in as he ran in that spot for 16-laps. Not that he was relaxing and settling for that position, but he seemed to be mired there. With two laps to go, he was about five car lengths behind the third-place car, but once the white flag flew, he closed in dramatically. Working on the wide line, he caught the driver in third and relieved him of the final podium spot in the last corner.

“Austin (Williams) went down to the bottom and was trucking by all of us,” Roa told the large crowd after the race. “I went down there, but that was not for me. So I just went to the top on both ends to keep my momentum up. Glad we could get up to third. We kind of salvaged the night. It was a little rough going tonight so we will take third and move on from there.”

Up next for Roa and his #91R team will be a return to the USAC/CRA home track, Perris Auto Speedway on Saturday, October 23rd. Roa has scored both of his 2021 wins on the Riverside County half-mile clay oval.

Fans who would like to purchase Brody Roa merchandise, but who cannot attend a race, can check out the online store that is packed with great items including t-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, beanies, baby onesies, plush blankets, jigsaw puzzles, stickers, notebooks, tote bags, wine tumblers, mugs, bandana pet collars and more.

Tanner Carrick Tallies 7th Win of Season

PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to the Silver Dollar Speedway for the first time since his heartbreak at the Gold Cup Race of Champions, Tanner Carrick found a little redemption as he made a late race move to score the win during the Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals opener before finishing sixth during Saturday’s finale.

“Friday night we were really good, and it was great to get a little redemption at Silver Dollar Speedway after the Gold Cup,” Tanner Carrick said. “Saturday night we had another really good car, but we broke a left rear shock spud at the start of the race, and it made handling a bit rough.”

A large count was in action during both nights of competition at Silver Dollar Speedway, with 66 checking in on Friday and 69 in action on Saturday night. Friday night’s opener saw Carrick go out nearly last in his qualifying flight, and the Lincoln, CA driver was able to time the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83T mount in second fastest.

Lining up on the pole of his heat race, Carrick flexed his muscle as his win would move him into the all-important Trophy Dash. Running third in the Dash, Carrick would grid the field from the second row for the 30-lap opening night feature event.

When the race came to life, Carrick would jump into the second position as he chased after Andy Forsberg. With a couple of early cautions keeping Carrick from pressuring for the lead, things would intensify just after the halfway point.

Taking the lead at the halfway point as Forsberg drifted off the track, Carrick would do a great job in traffic, though he would fall back to second on the 17th lap as Forsberg got back by him.

As Carrick continued to pressure Forsberg while they raced through traffic, Forsberg would make another mistake on the 19th lap and Carrick would move back into the race lead as Kyle Hirst would then move into second.

In a high stakes game of Chess, Hirst would get by Carrick on the 22nd lap to take the lead in traffic until a caution on the 25th lap bunched the field back up and gave the leaders clear track.

The race’s final restart would see Hirst lead the field into turns one and two as he attacked the cushion, and second running Carrick would stick the bottom and reclaim the top spot as the field exited turn four.

Out in front, Carrick would leave the field behind as he raced on to his seventh feature event win of the season.

Back in action on Saturday night, Carrick would again lay down the second fastest lap in his qualifying flight before running away with another heat race win.

Finishing fourth in the Saturday night Dash, Carrick would look to repeat his Friday night heroics as he again took the green flag from the second row.

Showcasing another strong car, Carrick would mimic his Friday night start as he quickly jumped up into second. Carrick’s good run would be short lived however, as his left rear shock mount would give way on the third lap creating a ill handling car for the next 37-laps.

Doing all he could on a rough racing surface, Carrick would keep his machine well inside the Top-10 as he closed his weekend out with a sixth place finish.

“I definitely thought we had something to contend for the Saturday night win, but we broke a shock mount early and it really made things tough on us,” Carrick said. “Thanks to the guys for all of their hard work, I am excited to get back to SCCT action this weekend.”

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: 546 Wins: 7, Top 5’s: 25, Top 10’s: 33

ON TAP: Carrick will be in action on both Friday and Saturday night at the Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA.

Kaleb Johnson Proud of Progress During Strong Sprint Car Season

Inside Line Promotions - SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Oct. 6, 2021) - The 2021 racing season was one of marked improvement for Kaleb Johnson.

In his second year of 360ci sprint car competition, the Sioux Falls sprint car driver finished sixth in the championship standings at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, where he competed regularly. He also recorded five top-five finishes at other tracks.

"I thought we had a pretty decent year," he said. "Obviously, there are some things you wish would have gone differently, but that's racing. It definitely wasn't a year for us to hang our heads about."

Among the highlights of the season for Johnson were his first podium finish at Knoxville Raceway and qualifying for his first World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series A Main at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D.

"We really wanted to win this year at Knoxville, but we knew how difficult that can be," he said. "So to make our first podium there was a pretty cool deal. Shortly after that we made our first World of Outlaws A Main in just our third start in a 410. That was a pretty special moment, too."

While a feature victory eluded him, Johnson finished second three times and had eight top-five finishes overall.

"It was disappointing that we didn't win a race this year," he said. "There were some days that I felt like I wanted to win a race more than I wanted to breath. But we raced where the toughest competition was so that makes it more difficult to win. That's what makes us better going forward.

"We finished second to Justin Henderson, Terry McCarl and Jack Dover - three great drivers who have way more experience than I do. But I feel like we're really close to winning against drivers like those guys."

One of Johnson's most significant improvements came in qualifying at Knoxville Raceway - a track where being able to lay down a quick time trial lap is generally key to a successful night of competition.

"I was proud of how we were able to improve our qualifying at Knoxville," he said. "We really needed to be in the top eight for qualifying there each night and we got to where we were usually in the top eight if not the top five.

"We had a few DNFs there I wish I could change, but that's just part of the learning process. But we also had some really good finishes against some really good cars, and I'm proud of that."

Dover Captures I-80 Speedway Track Championship After Stout Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Oct. 6, 2021) - Jack Dover secured the I-80 Speedway track championship last weekend when he posted a pair of runner-up results.

"I was pretty happy with our weekend," he said. "Obviously I feel like I-80 is a dominant track where I do well. To run second both nights is a bit frustrating, but a lot of people would love to run second so it's not a bad weekend. We got the points championship and two podiums so I'm pleased."

Dover was consistent throughout the doubleheader. He hustled from fourth to win a heat race on Friday before finishing where he started - second - in the main event.

"In the heat race we got a really good start and was in first going into turn one," he said. "That put us on the front row for the feature. We rode around in second the first five laps and then Ryan Timms got around me. I rode around third for most of the rest of the race. There wasn't a lot of passing. We had a restart with three laps to go. I pulled my wing back and ran through the bottom and was able to get to second. At one point I was side by side with Timms in turns three and four, but he had the momentum built up and pulled away."

A heat race win kicked off the action on Saturday. Dover capped the night by maneuvering from fourth to second in the A Main.

"We fell back to around ninth," he said. "I thought we were in trouble for a little bit. As the race went on our car got better and maybe others got worse. About halfway we started moving up slowly and then with about seven laps to go there was a restart. The top five cars were putting on a hell of a race the rest of the feature. I wish I was fan to see it. We were all changing positions every corner. It got pretty intense there."

Dover's three wins, seven top fives and eight top 10s led each category at the track en route to guiding him to the championship.

"It means a lot," he said. "The track has been around forever and is close to home. Any time you can win a championship it says you've been consistent."

Dover plans on competing this Friday and Saturday at Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan., during the Steve King Memorial. He last raced at the track in July 2016 when he recorded a victory during the opening night of the Steve King Memorial.

Gravel Garners Top Five During Williams Grove National Open Finale

Inside Line Promotions - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (Oct. 6, 2021) - David Gravel recorded a top-five finish in the Champion Racing Oil National Open finale last Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway.

"I felt like we had good speed all weekend, but lacked a little in the A Main both nights," he said. "We were going to have a solid weekend with a top five and a top 10, but a part failure got us in the feature on Friday. It was a little frustrating. We haven't put a whole night together at Williams Grove. It's a tough track to figure out. Luckily we have the early part of the night figured out and that helps us later in the night."

The Big Game Motorsports team enjoyed a solid ending to the marquee World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event that began on Friday when Gravel qualified fifth quickest in his group. He then finished where he started - third - in a heat race to lock into the 10th starting position in the main event. Gravel advanced multiple positions early, but a mechanical problem derailed the run and resulted in a DNF.

"It was definitely very, very frustrating," he said. "We know the chance of us winning the championship this year is real slim. That would have been a 40-point swing and instead we didn't gain anything. And second and third are close in points. When you get to the end of the year you don't want those things happening, but it's part of our sport."

The team rebounded on Saturday as Gravel timed in third quickest in his group. He advanced from second to win a heat race and make the dash. A fourth-place result in the dash lined him up on the outside of the second row in the A Main.

"We put ourselves in position and just couldn't capitalize," he said. "The front four guys were able to dice it up and we just weren't able to do that. We rode around in fourth and then lost a spot on a restart. We rode around in fifth and watched it all unfold. We weren't able to get in the line of fire and throw slide jobs. But if we're frustrated with a top five that shows you our expectations."

The fifth-place finish was the 42nd top five of the season for Gravel, who remains second in the World of Outlaws championship standings.

Next up for the team is the Nittany Showdown this Friday and Saturday at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. Gravel is looking for his first career World of Outlaws win at the track.

"It's a tricky joint and there will be a lot of good cars there," he said. "It's a whole new challenge. I've raced there quite a bit over the years, but we only go there twice a year with the World of Outlaws. It's a track I have good confidence at. I feel we'll be able to carry on our good qualifying effort and go from there. I feel we can treat this place more like a Knoxville or Eldora whereas Williams Grove is so unique."

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 1 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 25 (10).

Oct. 2 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 1 (2); Dash: 4 (3); Feature: 5 (4).

Sprint Car Challenge Tour season resumes this Friday at Keller Auto Speedway

By Gary Thomas

Hanford, CA…Following an extended layoff the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards is locked and loaded to get the season back underway at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford this Friday night.

The event marks the 36th annual “Cotton Classic” and is the start of just three point races to go for the Sprint Car Challenge Tour. A season filled with close competition and immense parity finally saw the first repeat winner of the year when Shane Golobic captured the Johnny Key Classic back in August.

The Cotton Classic presented by Penny Newman Grain has been one of the long-standing and prestigious showcases in the Central Valley over the years. Apart from 2014, it has been held at the Kings County Fairgrounds venue every season since the mid-1980’s. This Friday’s show also includes the Kings of Thunder Winged 410 Sprint Cars, while Saturday’s “Morrie Williams Legends Tribute” features the King of the West-NARC 410s and KoT Winged 360 Sprinters.

Foresthill’s Ryan Robinson has been a mark of consistency, having tallied six consecutive top-five finishes with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour. The driver of the Weiher Racing No. 14W has built his point lead up to 46-markers and will be looking to record his first victory of the SCCT campaign on Saturday in Hanford. Robinson has earned podium results in four of the last five events contested, showing just how solid he has been.

Roseville’s Colby Copeland has also put together a strong season and heads into Keller Auto Speedway ranking second in the standings. The wheel-man of the Van Lare Steering Repair No. 5V has tallied top-five finishes in half of the SCCT races held, including a close runner up at Hanford back in May. Copeland will be searching for his second triumph of the year on Friday to help close the gap between himself and Robinson.

Fellow Sprint Car Challenge Tour winners this year, Justyn Cox of Clarksburg and Tanner Carrick of Lincoln, venture into Hanford sitting third and fourth in the points respectively. Cox piloted the C&M Motorsports No. 7C to a victory at Placerville Speedway in June, while Carrick drove his CVC Concrete No. 83T to a win at the season opener in March. Rounding out the top-five with three events remaining is the Monhoff Racing No. 35 driven by fan favorite Sean Becker of Roseville.

More drivers expected to tackle the Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford on Friday will include Dominic Scelzi, who captured the SCCT event at the track in May, along with Chase Majdic, Andy Forsberg, Isaiah Vasquez, Kaleb Montgomery, Blake Carrick, DJ Netto, Corey Day, Michael Faccinto, Joey Ancona, Grant Duinkerken and others.

Adult tickets for the 36th Cotton Classic presented by Penny Newman Grain this Friday October 8th cost $20 while juniors (ages 6-17), seniors (62+) and military with ID are $15. The front gate will open at 4pm with the pit meeting at approximately 4:45. Wheel packing, hot laps and Bianchi Farms qualifying will follow.

Race fans can purchase their tickets at the gate on race day or online by visiting https://market.myracepass.com/store/tickets/?i=1261956&store=11977

The Keller Auto Speedway is a 3/8-mile clay oval located on the Kings County Fairgrounds in Hanford, California. The physical address is 801 S. 10th Ave. Hanford, Ca 93230. More info on the track can be found at www.racekingsspeedway.com

TOP OVAL NATIONALS 360 GUARANTEED SPOT IN TURKEY NIGHT GRAND PRIX SPRINT CAR RACE

(Perris, CA, October 5, 2021) The pot for 360 sprint cars entering November’s 25th Annual Heimark Anheuser Busch Budweiser Oval Nationals at Perris Auto Speedway just got sweeter. Promoter Don Kazarian announced on Tuesday morning that the 360 driver who accumulates the most points over the three days will get a guaranteed starting spot in the USAC West Coast Sprint Car Series finale at the Turkey Night Grand Prix on the Ventura Raceway.

The announcement comes when both races are celebrating historic birthdays in 2021. In addition to it being the 25th anniversary of the Oval Nationals, the Turkey Night Grand Prix, which began in 1934 at Gilmore Stadium in Hollywood (the track is where the CBS studios are now located), will be celebrating its 80th anniversary on Thanksgiving weekend. It will be the sixth time the race has taken place at the picturesque Ventura track which is located adjacent to the beach on the Ventura County Fairgrounds.

240607328_10165718267060201_5534910756395829673_n.jpg

A few weeks ago, Kazarian announced that the highest finishing 360 on all three nights of the Oval Nationals will receive a $500.00 bonus. Each night the second highest finishing 360 will get $300.00 and third highest will pocket $200.00 extra. These bonuses are guaranteed whether the top finishers are in the A mains or not.

“There are a lot of very strong 360 sprint cars in California these days and a lot of top racers driving them,” Kazarian said. “360 powered cars have already won two races against the 410s in the USAC/CRA series this year. Ten years ago, that was almost unheard of. We decided to give teams with 360s some special incentives to race in the Oval Nationals this year with the cash bonuses. These bonuses will be paid in addition to their regular purse winnings.”

“On Monday, I decided to give my friend Jim Naylor of the Ventura Raceway a call,” Kazarian continued. “I wanted to see if he would consider giving the highest 360-point driver in the Oval Nationals a guaranteed starting spot in the USAC West Coast Sprint Car main event at the Turkey Night Grand Prix on November 27th. Jim liked the idea. It is another great reason for 360 teams to come run the Oval Nationals. In addition, it will enable extra cross promotion between The PAS and Ventura leading up to each of our biggest races of the season.”

Interested 410 and 360 teams can download and print the entry blank for the Oval Nationals at the following link www.perrisautospeedway.com/2021/21ovalentry.pdf.

All three nights of racing will be full shows with qualifying, heat races, preliminary mains, and A Main events. The Thursday “Bill Pratt Main Event” and Friday’s “Evelyn Pratt Main Event” will be 30-laps each. Saturday’s finale will be 40-laps. The top six drivers in points after the first two nights will not have to qualify on Saturday and will be seeded directly into the A Main event. They will contest “The Super Six Dash” to determine the lineup for the first three rows of the 40-lap finale. The complete racing format can be viewed at the following link https://bit.ly/2XgT8Wv. The link to the Oval Nationals points structure is https://bit.ly/399fcoo.

The Thursday and Friday main events will pay $5,000.00 each to win and $500.00 to start. Saturday’s 40-lap finale will pay $10,000.00 to win and $1,000.00 to start. The complete purse for all three nights is available at the following link https://bit.ly/3tTm1Et.

In addition to the three nights of racing, there will be a Wednesday night practice session for Oval Nationals entered cars. The practice session will be free for fans in the grandstands.

Camping will be available for the Oval Nationals beginning at noon, on Wednesday, November 3rd in the old campground. The cost is $25.00 per night.

October 5, 2021 – The Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro returns to racing action this weekend. The series will invade the state of Alabama for two complete nights of racing action at Montgomery Motor Speedway Oct. 8-9.

The series has enjoyed a highly competitive season thus far in 2021. The season has produced four different winners with only 5-time MSR champion Jimmy McCune winning more than once.

The event is expected to draw many of the MSR regulars as well as a few of southeastern drivers including long time and popular southern stock car star Dave Mader III who today announced plans to compete in his new winged asphalt sprint car at the fast Montgomery Motor Speedway event joining the MSR teams from all around the country.

Early expected entries include: Mader III, Troy DeCaire, Charlie Schultz, Kevin Feeney, Jeff Bloom, Joe Liguori, Nolan Allison, Adam Biltz , Tom Jewell, Bobby Komasarski, Rick Holley, Todd McQuillen, Joshua Sexton, Tommy Nichols and others.

Ryan Robinson Sixth at Fall Nationals Opener Before Wreck Ends Run in Finale

PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to action with the Weiher Racing team during the Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals in Chico, CA over the weekend, Ryan Robinson would pocket a sixth-place finish during Friday night’s opener, before a wreck while battling for third in Saturday’s finale ended his night prematurely.

“Friday night it was pretty fast and tough to make up ground,” Ryan Robinson said. “Saturday night we had another good night going, but unfortunately Shane Golobic had a steering part failure while we were battling for position, and it resulted in us making contact and I took a pretty good ride.”

With the pit area in Chico, CA packed all weekend for the annual Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals, Robinson returned to work with Todd Weiher and timed the Mako Farms, Inc./LP Holdings/RPI backed entry in sixth fastest in his flight.

Picking up a second-place finish in heat race competition, the Roseville, CA driver would qualify for the Dash where he would start and finish in the eighth position.

Lining up eighth in the 30-lap feature event by way of his Dash finish, a hooked-up surface would make things a bit challenging as far as making up track position. Able to pick up a few spots over the course of the race, the current Sprint Car Challenge Tour point leader would cap the opener off with a sixth-place finish.

Saturday night Robinson would get off to a quick start as he earned quick time honors with a total of 69 cars checked into the pit area.

Lining up on the pole of his heat race, Robinson would race to the heat race win and again lock himself into the Dash. With Lady Luck again not on his side in the draw, Robinson would find himself with the eight pill for the second consecutive night.

Able to race to third from eighth, Robinson would take the green flag from the second row to get the 40-lap feature underway.

When the race came to life, Robinson would keep his mount in the mix as he battled inside the Top-Five. Battling for the third position on the 10th lap, something would break on Shane Golobic’s car and it would turn him up the straightway and Robinson would make contact which led to a series of flips off of turn three, bringing his night to an end.

“It was just a wrong place, wrong time circumstance on Saturday night,” Robinson said. “A bummer way to end our night, but we have a lot of speed and I am hoping we can carry that into Friday’s SCCT race in Hanford, CA.”

Late Contact at Fall Nationals Ends Blake Carrick’s Night

PETERSEN MEDIA: Dealing with brake issues during Friday night’s Fall Nationals opener in Chico, CA, Saturday’s finale was going well for Blake Carrick until he was collected in another car’s wreck and ended his night early.

“Friday night we fought brake issues all night, and it put us in the ‘C’,’ Blake Carrick said. “We were able to get those issues fixed for Saturday and had a really good run going in the feature until we got collected in another driver’s mess.”

Following a night of issues on Friday night, Saturday night saw the Lincoln, CA driver get off to a great start as he timed the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 38B entry in sixth fastest in his qualifying flight with 69 cars checked in at the Silver Dollar Speedway.

Putting himself in the second row of his heat race, Carrick’s fourth place finish would safely earn him a berth in the 40-lap feature event where he would take the green flag from the 16th starting position.

Working his way towards the Top-10 when the green flag dropped on what would be a very wild feature event, Carrick would take over the 12th spot on lap six before breaking into eighth on the race’s 11th marker.

Slipping back to ninth just before the halfway point, Carrick would continue to work inside the Top-10 as the laps continued to click down. A lap 25 restart saw Carrick make a big move that saw him pick up a few positions, but with a car getting out of shape in front of him, it would leave the Lincoln, CA driver with nowhere to go and his night would come to an early end.

“I felt really good Saturday night, we just got caught up and had nowhere to go,” Carrick said. “Looking forward to getting the 410ci engine back in this weekend for two nights of racing in Hanford, CA.

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

ON TAP: Blake Carrick will head to Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA this Friday and Saturday night for two nights of 410ci action.

Austin McCarl and Country Builders Racing Net Chico, CA Top-10

PETERSEN MEDIA: Over the last month, Austin McCarl and Country Builders Racing have been mainstays at Chico, CA’s Silver Dollar Speedway, and Hanford, CA’s Keller Auto Speedway with the way the schedule played out. Coming in off of a Top-5 in Hanford, CA, McCarl picked up an eighth-place finish during Chico’s Fall Nationals on Saturday night as he now turns his attention back to Hanford, CA for this weekend’s Cotton Classic and Morrie Williams Tribute.

“It has been good to get some familiarity at these two tracks this year with only running at Hanford one time in 2020,” Austin McCarl said. “Getting back to Chico, CA on Friday night, qualifying was so crucial and going out early kind of buried us and made for a long night.”

Timing in 18th fastest in his qualifying flight with 66 cars on hand for the Pacific Sprints Fall National Opener, McCarl lined the Country Builders/Ochoco West Lumber/Brown and Miller Racing Solutions backed No. 88 up in the fifth row of his heat race. On a locked down racing surface in heat race action, the start would see McCarl bike up hard in turns one and two and come to a stop off the racing surface.

Back two more rows for the restart, passing would be at a premium as McCarl would end up 11th which forced him into the C Main. Lining up sixth in the ‘C’, passing would still be tough with the track still extremely fast. Unable to work into a transfer, McCarl’s Friday night came to an end with a sixth-place finish in the ‘C’.

“After qualifying and with how the track was, I knew it would be one of those nights you just looked to survive, and take anything that was given to you,” McCarl added. “We came back with a much stronger night on Saturday.”

Saturday night saw 69 cars jam into the Silver Dollar Speedway pit area as McCarl would get off to a much better start to the night as he timed the famed No. 88 entry in ninth fastest in his qualifying flight.

Lining up fifth in his heat race, the Altoona, IA native would work his way up to the fourth position which would lock him into the 40-lap feature event.

Locking into the 16th starting position, McCarl was off to a good start as he was able to slice and dice his way forward amidst a very wild race that saw several red and yellow flag stoppages.

Continuing to work his way forward, McCarl would crack the Top-10 as he would work into eighth late in the race.

When the checkered flag flew, McCarl capped a hard-fought weekend off with an eighth place finish.

“When the feature went green on Saturday night, I thought we were pretty good,” McCarl added. “I think I needed to be a little more aggressive around the halfway point of the race but things were a little wild out there, so I played it safe and survived. Good to get a Top-10, and really looking forward to getting back in the 410ci car and getting back down to Hanford, CA this weeknd.”

Austin McCarl and Country Builders Racing would like to thank Country Builders, Ochoco West Lumber, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, MAAS Brothers Powder Coating, Offill Family Farms, , HRP, FK Shocks, A.R.T. Enterprise, Engler Machine, Aurora Rod Ends, Schoenfeld, Wilwood, Kistler Engines, K1 Safety Gear, Bell Helmets, Maxim Chassis, B. Scadden Design, and Octane Ink for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 8, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 1, Top 10’s: 2

ON TAP: Country Builders Racing and Austin McCarl make a return trip to Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA for two nights of 410ci racing.

 

 

Series of Wild Events Brings Andy Gregg’s Fall Nationals to a Close

PETERSEN MEDIA: Enduring issues in his Friday night heat race that ultimately hindered the Brown-Eagle Racing team, a series of unfortunate events in the Saturday night feature would end Andy Gregg’s Fall Nationals early.

“Friday night we were definitely disappointed to come up short from making the feature event,” Andy Gregg said. “Saturday night we had a good night going, but we were really unlucky and hit a loose wheel on the track and ultimately ended our night.”

Checking into Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday night to open up the Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals, Gregg would time the No. 01 machine in ninth fastest in his qualifying flight amongst the 66 cars that were in attendance.

Heat race action saw Gregg run inside a transfer position; however, he would get over the edge of the track in turn four and make contact with the wall and force him to the work area. Working his way back to the ‘C’, Gregg would get back to ninth which would help his starting position in the ‘C’.

From the front row of the ‘C’, Gregg would pick up the win and extend his night into the ‘B’ Main. Looking to charge his way into one of the four transfer positions, Gregg’s efforts would come up just short as he could only get to seventh before the checkered flag flew.

Returning to the speedway on Saturday night, Gregg would again get off to a quick start at the famed mile bullring as he timed in 10th fastest on this night with 69 cars on hand for the finale.

Hanging on to the fifth and final transfer position in heat race action, Gregg would safely transfer into the 40-lap feature event where he would take the green flag from the 20th starting position.

Working his way forward from the tail end of the field following a pre-race track grooming session, Gregg would get up to the 15th position just prior to the race’s halfway point.

Though the race was mired with yellow and red flags, Gregg was able to keep his nose clean until the 23rd lap. With another car having issues and losing a wheel, Gregg would come into contact with the wheel down the back stretch, which result in his machine doing a massive wheelie and slamming down causing extensive front-end damage.

The damage would be too much to bounce back from, and Gregg’s weekend came to an end.

“It was a wild way for our weekend to end,” Gregg said. “It was pretty hard contact, and I am still a little sore from it now. It was a bummer weekend for us as we have ran really well in our limited starts at Chico this year, so we had high expectations for ourselves.”

Andy would like to thank GUTS, LAL Motorsports, Crane Inspection Agency, Meyers and Son Drywall, Nail it Roofing, CTL Forest Management, ARP Enterprises, Ervin Sales, Aaron Dosh Attorney at Law, Ice House Resort, Classic Fence Co., Triple X, Wilwood, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, K&N, King Racing Products, BR Motorsports, Amerikote, Pony Express Service, Eagle Grit, Sierra Ice, Ford’s Only, MF Inc., and Gilly’s Radiator for their support.

ON TAP: Gregg’s next event is slated for November 6th in Stockotn, CA.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-18, Wins- 1, Top 5’s-3, Top 10’s-8

Justin Sanders and Dale Miller Motorsports 2nd at Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals

PETERSEN MEDIA- With a string of cancelations due to regional fires, and King of the West commitments for Justin Sanders, the annual Fall Nationals in Chico, CA saw Sanders reunite with Dale Miller Motorsports for the first time since July and run well as the team finished fourth during Friday night’s opener before a second place run in Saturday night’s finale.

“Unfortunately, we had some races get cancelled on us, and it has made for a pretty long break for this team,” Justin Sanders said. “Even with the lull in the schedule, we were able to pick back up from where we left off and had a really good weekend together.”

Friday night the action kicked off at Silver Dollar Speedway for the annual Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals with 66 cars checking in for a night of action. Running the World of Outlaws format, Sanders would time the Thompson’s Buick-GMC/Thompson’s Jeep-Ram/Dale Miller Septic, Inc. No. 4SA entry in sixth fastest in his qualifying flight.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, the Aromas, CA driver would finish third as he would lock directly into the opening night feature event as he would take the green flag from the 11th starting position.

With the track holding moisture on a cool fall night, passing would be tough in traffic, but Sanders would make do as he powered his way forward. Jumping into the seventh position in the opening stanzas, Sanders would crack the Top-5 at the race’s halfway point.

Continuing to hold steady in the Top-5, Sanders would take advantage of a restart with five-to-go, and take the fourth position and go on to finish there.

Looking to put the Stephen Allard Tribute Car in victory lane at the race honoring Allard on Saturday night, Sanders would get off to another good start as he timed in seventh fastest in his flight with 69 cars piled into the pits on this night.

Able to work his way into second in his heat race, Sanders would garner a very important Dash position as his Dash win would put him on the pole of the 40-lapper.

When the race came to life, Sanders would jump out to the early lead as he led over the likes of Dominic Scelzi and Ryan Robinson.

Leading the way amidst a wild race going on behind him, Sanders would see young gun Corey Day get by him on the 11th lap as he slipped back to second. Continuing to keep pace with Day, the 20th lap would see Sanders fall back to third as eventual race winner, Kalib Henry, was able to get by him as he stormed to the race lead.

A lap 25 restart saw Sanders move back into second as he had his sights set on Henry for the final 15-laps of the race. Giving chase, Sanders would come up just short as he capped his Pacific Sprints Fall Nationals off with a second-place finish.

“This is a race we definitely want to win, but to be on the podium with this field of cars is still a good night’ Justin Sanders said. “Thanks to Dale and everyone associated with his team for their hard work.”

The Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Thompson’s Buick-GMC, Thompson’s Jeep-Ram, Dale Miller Septic, Inc., North County Plastering, Nail-It Roofing, Anrak Corporation, Frank’s Body Shop, Rider Racing Engines, Walker Performance Filtration, Factory Kahne Shocks, Smith Titanium, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., King Racing Products, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Black Out Fight Gear, and 24 Hour Road Side Service for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 13, Wins- 6, Top-5’s-10, Top-10’s-10

ON TAP: Sanders will return to 410ci racing this weekend as he is slated for two nights of action in Hanford, CA.

"Terry has won the ASCS Warrior Region so many times," Ramey said. "It'd be cool to get another one for him. We've been pretty consistent lately and had a lot of good runs. With the podiums and top fives we've been able to take the lead. Hopefully we can lock them both up."

Hagar Aiming for Flip Flop 50 Triumph This Weekend at Riverside International Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - MARION, Ark. (Oct. 5, 2021) - Derek Hagar is hungry for another Flip Flop 50 victory this weekend.

Hagar will invade Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., during the USCS Series' Flip Flop 50 this Friday and Saturday. He's a multiple-time winner during the event, which features two main events with the second race being completely inverted from the results of the first A Main.

"It'd take a lot of luck to win both," he said. "I don't think anyone has done it. Obviously we'd need the race track to be slick enough where you could come from the back to win. We've won the first feature several times. I think last year was the first time we've won the second feature. We didn't start in the back, but came from the fifth row."

Hagar hustled from 16th to sixth in the opening feature before rallying from ninth to win the second main event last year. His best Flip Flop 50 run overall came in 2017 when Hagar captured the first A Main before charging from 22nd to fourth in the second feature.

"I'd be happy with winning one and running well in the other," he said. "We seem to shine there when the track slicks off and you can race on it. I've said it in the past, anybody is fast when the track is heavy. It takes finesse and a driver to be able to drive on Riverside when it's slick. It's a different kind of slick. You have to be smooth with it. I think that's when we shine the best there. Being a two-day show with as many cars that will be there, I'm certain it will be slick come Saturday night."

Hagar was most recently victorious at the track on May 1.

Pokorski Motorsports closes out 29-year run strong
at Beaver Dam Raceway, forges future plans

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) October 5, 2021 – After 29 years of open-wheel racing competition on dirt tracks throughout the state of Wisconsin, the Pokorski Motorsports wrapped up its highly successful tenure as a racing team with a pair of strong performances, during a non-points Midwest Sprint Car Association doubleheader weekend of action at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. Friday, Oct. 1 and Saturday, Oct. 2.

The first half of the two-night event, which was contested as part of the Wingless Nationals featuring the Wisconsin WingLESS Sprint Car Series, saw 29-year veteran Paul Pokorski step into the seat of the No. 4 Pokorski Motorsports car with an impressive field of 28 MSA 360 Sprint Cars on hand.

Pokorski, who claimed 46 A-main victories and racked up a total of four track and series championships in Winged Super Modified and MSA 360 Sprint Car Series competition for Pokorski Motorsports, opened the night by qualifying 10th with a lap of 13.348 seconds.

Pokorski was scheduled to start from the pole of the first 10-lap MSA heat race. However, the team was penalized to the rear of the field at the start after being late to the staging area.

After starting seventh, Pokorski worked his way past Josh Teunissen on lap 8 and Tyler Brabant on the final lap to finish fifth and earn a spot in the A main based on the MSA’s heat race passing points formula.

Pokorski lined up 13th in the 25-lap MSA A main and rode in the 13th spot on the fast and tacky track surface until a caution flag appeared on lap 11 when Tyler Tischendorf and Bill Taylor collided along the front stretch.

On the restart, Lance Fassbender flipped in turn two after contact with Matt Rechek and Tyler Davis. During the incident, Pokorski made contact with Tim Haddy, which resulted in a flat right rear tire on Pokorski’s car.

After going to the work area to change the flat tire, Pokorski restarted 12th as the final car on the lead lap. The West Bend driver went to work over the final 14 laps to move past Jason Johnson for 11th on lap 13 before working around Scott Conger, Nick Daywalt and Katelyn Krebsbach in the closing laps en route to a personal season-best eighth-place A-main finish in a race won by Travis Arenz.

“Friday night was okay,” Pokorski said. “The car was a little tight, and we kept working on it. I was reasonably happy with the eighth-place result given we had to make a trip to the work area with the flat right rear. We made some pretty significant changes overnight to try and help Alex on Saturday and the changes seemed to work.”

On Saturday, Oct. 2, Alex Pokorski took another turn at the wheel of the Pokorski Motorsports car to close out the 2021 MSA campaign.

With 21 MSA 360 Sprint Cars on hand, Alex qualified fourth with a lap of 13.273 seconds before lining up second in the second 10-lap MSA heat race. Alex settled into second place on the opening lap and mainly rode the cushion of the well-manicured track surface en route to a second-place showing.

After starting fifth in the season-ending 25-lap A main, Alex fell back to seventh in the early going. On lap 5, Alex worked the high line to move past Donny Goeden to take sixth.

One lap later, Alex powered around Jordan Paulsen with a high move in turn two to take over fifth. After a red flag appeared on lap 8 for a flip involving Tim Haddy, Alex restarted fourth and he held the fourth position throughout the final 17 laps to record his career-best MSA finish and second top-five A-main showing of the 2021 season in a race won by Jack Vanderboom.

“The crew did a great job to make the car fast the whole night and I was able to search around and find what lines worked best,” Alex said. “The track in the feature was a lot of fun to race on and I’m happy to close off the year on a high.”

Paul was also pleased with Alex’s performance on Saturday night.

“We are very proud of Alex and how well he did all year and to finish the year with a career-best finish is pretty fantastic,” Paul said. “It was a great last weekend for racing. We had great weather and good results for us.”

Although Pokorski Motorsports may be ending in its original form, that doesn’t mean Alex, Paul and the members of the Pokorski Motorsports crew won’t be actively engaged in 360 Sprint Car racing in 2022.

“We are selling part of our equipment to a young man who has never raced anything before, so I plan to try to help him and his father, offering as much help as they want from me to help them along,” Paul said. “Alex has been given a one-year deal to drive for Spyder Akright and Akright Auto for about 75 percent of the MSA races, mostly at Plymouth.

“We [Pokorski Motorsports] will be housing that car, freshening it over the winter and doing the week-to-week maintenance during the season,” he said. “We are very grateful to Spyder for giving Alex the opportunity to keep racing, since he is doing so well and continuing to improve. Those two things should keep me busy, and there may be an opportunity for me to drive a couple of nights next year as well. We will see how much time and energy I have left. Our team will still be around. It will just look pretty different. It was a good last year for ‘the original Pokorski Motorsports.’ I’m excited to see where Alex can take it in 2022 and maybe beyond.”

Alex is also thankful for the opportunity to continue his Sprint Car racing career under the Akright Auto banner in 2022.

“Pokorski Motorsports has been an awesome program that we have shared with family and friends,” Alex said. “I’ve really enjoyed being a part of it. Hopefully this is just a break and I can start it back up in a few years once I’m out of college.

“Next year I am happy to be partnering up with Spyder [Steve] Akright and the Akright Auto team,” he said. “Our plan is to have two cars. Spyder will run one car and I will run the other. We won't run every show, but we will try to race as many nights as we can. I would like to thank him for the opportunity and I’m excited to see what we can do next season.”

In 29 official MSA events and 27 complete programs, the Pokorski Motorsports team collected two top-five A-main finishes, seven top-10 A-main showings, one B main victory and three heat race triumphs, while placing 14th in the final MSA standings and 15th in the Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car point standings.

Dominic Scelzi Scores 50th Top-10 Result of Season During Fall Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - CHICO, Calif. (Oct. 5, 2021) - Dominic Scelzi recorded his 50th top-10 run of the season last Friday during the opening round of the Fall Nationals hosted by Silver Dollar Speedway.

Scelzi timed in fifth quickest out of 30-plus drivers in his group before he ended fifth in a heat race, which earned a transfer into the main event.

"On Friday night the track was really, really wet all night long," he said. "We qualified decent. The track was really greasy on the bottom and I wasn't able to get moved up to get out of the grease on the start of the heat race. I fell to fifth immediately. For the most part it was around the bottom the whole feature and it was hard to pass. I ran the middle around guy's right rears. If someone would miss the bottom we'd get by them. I felt we had a good race car all night long, but got behind the eight ball with starting in the grease in the heat race."

Scelzi rallied from 17th to ninth for the monumental top 10.

He continued to improve on Saturday when he set quick time in both his group and overall out of the more than 65 drivers. A heat race victory locked Scelzi into the dash and a rally from seventh to second place in the dash started him on the outside of the front row in the A Main.

"The track was really, really good in the dash," he said. "It was slick and wide. I felt we had a good shot in the main event. They reworked the track. The inside row was better so I fell to third the first lap. I just hung out and saved my tires. Around Lap 8 I moved to the top and made a really good lap. I got back down into line, just trying to bide my time. A red came out on Lap 10. I noticed the second-place car's shock was off. I felt we were in a good position. Unfortunately our left rear bleeder stuck so the tire went flat under yellow, which caused us to have to go to the work area. We went from last and got up to seventh with 15 laps to go. Then the drivers in fifth and sixth got into each other. I had nowhere to go, hit them and spun sideways. Then I got hit. At that point we pulled off. It was a bummer because our lap times showed we were one of the fastest cars all night long. Even coming from the back I felt we had a shot to at least podium."

Scelzi was credited with a 14th-place result.

The previous weekend Scelzi took one step closer to his first career King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series championship when he recorded a fourth-place finish at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, Calif., on Sept. 25. He qualified fourth quickest, placed third in a heat race and advanced from seventh to fourth in the A Main.

The efficient night leaves Scelzi with a lead of 63 points with only four races remaining in the series schedule, including one this weekend. It's part of a busy weekend at Keller Auto Speedway, where Scelzi will compete in both 410ci and 360ci sprint car competition on Friday and Saturday.

Westfall and RMM to join BOSS in I-96 doubleheader on October 8-9

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (October 4, 2021) – Despite a tough USAC National Sprint Car Series outing that resulted in an 18th-place finish at Terre Haute Action Track on Friday, October 1, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will clear the slate and refocus, set to rejoin the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) for a doubleheader at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan, on Friday and Saturday, October 8-9.

Dubbed Roll the Dice weekend, the BOSS Series doubleheader will award a total winner’s share equaling $4,000; $2,000 on Friday and $2,000 on Saturday. Westfall is a former Roll the Dice winner at I-96, scoring the $1,500 weekend opener a season ago. Impressive enough, Westfall swept the entire program, first setting the fastest time during qualifying time trials then winning his respective heat race.

Westfall will enter the Wolverine State with two victories on the season, scoring his most recent for Ray Marshall Motorsports during BOSS action at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway on July 24.

“We’re ready to get the weekend started…we’re due for a win,” Westfall stated, a former BOSS Series champion and current BOSS Series championship leader, driver of Ray Marshall’s Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/”Bumblebee Express”/No. 33M sprint car. “It should be a fun weekend at I-96. We know our way around that place and we have some success there. I think we owe Ray (Marshall) a few more wins so we’ll do our best to sweep the weekend.”

Although his last victory was in July, Westfall has been successful on the BOSS trail since, earning a podium finish during a Fremont Speedway visit on September 18.

Danny Dietrich rallies big in National Open preliminary, will join Outlaws in Port Royal double

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (October 4, 2021) – “Double-D” Danny Dietrich may have missed the ultimate goal, but the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, native put on a show during the two-day National Open at Williams Grove Speedway featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and secured a top-ten result along the way, doing so during the weekend opener on Friday, October 1.

The top-ten, finishing eighth, officially, in the $10,000-to-win preliminary, was the product of determination and resilience, forced to battle his way through the evening’s Last Chance Showdown, which he won, before charging ahead from 21st on the feature grid. The former Williams Grove Speedway track champion was forced to compete in the Last Chance Showdown after a cam issue sidelined Dietrich during his respective heat race.

Dietrich went on to finish 12th in the $75,000-to-win National Open finale on Saturday, October 2. A rally from seventh to fourth during his respective heat secured Dietrich’s spot in the evening’s 40-lapper, ultimately climbing four spots in the A-Main.

“They were bittersweet results I would have to say. I think we were on pace to contend for a win on Friday, but you have to work with the cards you’re given. Hats off to Williams Grove Speedway…the track was great and we were able to make up a lot of ground in a hurry,” Danny Dietrich said, driver of Gary Kauffman’s Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, Graver’s Garage, Racer’s New & Used Parts Warehouse, No. 48 sprint car. “We’re going to do our best to put ourselves in even better positions at Port Royal. This team has what it takes to win against the best in the world. We’ve done it before, so it’s time to do it again.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with a two-day World of Outlaws outing at the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” on Friday and Saturday, October 8-9. Dubbed the Nittany Showdown, the two-day blockbuster will award $10,000 and $15,000, respectively, as well as conclude all World of Outlaws competition in the Keystone State for the 2021 season.

Dietrich is a recent Port Royal winner, claiming the 2021 Labor Day Classic victory on Monday afternoon, September 6.

Zearfoss 16th in National Open finale; Port Royal return next on agenda

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (October 4, 2021) – Utilizing a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series provisional, Central Pennsylvania favorite and World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year contender, Brock Zearfoss, took full advantage of the opportunity to start Williams Grove Speedway’s $75,000-to-win National Open finale on Saturday, October 2, and eventually rallied nine spots to finish 16th, ending his campaign just behind the “Myerstown Missile” Brent Marks and CJB Motorsports’ Spencer Bayston.

Although not his top performance of the year, earning 21 World of Outlaws top-ten finishes to date, Zearfoss remained focused and determined, ultimately battling by some of the best in the business.

Not deterred, Zearfoss, driver of his own Brock Zearfoss Racing, Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., Meckley’s Limestone Products, Berkebile Oil Company, Klick Lewis Cars, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, X-1 Race Cars, No. 3Z sprint car, will have the chance to compete in front of his home fans yet again, following the World of Outlaws trail to familiar territory in Juniata County.

Dubbed the Nittany Showdown, Port Royal Speedway’s two-day blockbuster on October 8-9 will award $10,000 and $15,000, respectively, as well as conclude all World of Outlaws competition in the Keystone State for the 2021 season.

Zearfoss is certainly no stranger to action at the Port Royal “Speed Palace,” as the nearby Jonestown, Pennsylvania, native was the 2017 Port Royal track champion.

“We’re ready to go again,” Brock Zearfoss said, who earned his most recent World of Outlaws top-ten during action at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, California. “You can’t stay discouraged for too long when racing against the World of Outlaws because the other drivers and teams take no pity. Every day is a new day and you have to take full advantage of that. I’m hoping for big things at Port Royal. I know our team is more than capable of winning.”

Brock Zearfoss is currently ninth in the World of Outlaws driver standings just behind Kraig Kinser and James McFadden.

PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY RECEIVES FIRST FOUR ENTRIES FOR 25TH OVAL NATIONALS

(Perris, CA, October 4, 2021) The first four entries for the 25th Annual Heimark Anheuser Busch Budweiser Oval Nationals have arrived at the Perris Auto Speedway office. The race, which pits the best drivers from the West Coast against the biggest talents in the Midwest, will take place on November 4th, 5th, and 6th.

Chino Hills, California’s Eddie Tafoya Jr., Verne Sweeney of Lomita, California, and the Arizona duo of Charles Davis Jr. from Buckeye and Peoria resident Tye “The Bull” Mihocko have all signed up for the prestigious race on the Southern California half-mile clay oval.

“It is always fun to receive the first entries for the Oval Nationals,” promoter Don Kazarian said. “It sets the excitement in action for our biggest sprint car race of the year. Charles Davis Jr., Eddie Tafoya Jr., and Tye Mihocko have all won races at The PAS. Davis just won his second USAC/CRA race here a little over a week ago. Tafoya, who was the track Young Guns champion in 2018, and Mihocko both won main events in the old Young Guns Series. Verne Sweeney has never won a main event at The PAS, but very few sprint car drivers have turned in more laps on the track than he has. And, this year, he is having his best season in a long time.”

Interested teams can download and print the entry blank for the Oval Nationals at the following link www.perrisautospeedway.com/2021/21ovalentry.pdf.

All three nights of racing will be full shows with qualifying, heat races, preliminary mains, and A Main events. The Thursday “Bill Pratt Main Event” and Friday’s “Evelyn Pratt Main Event” will be 30-laps each. Saturday’s finale will be 40-laps. The top six drivers in points after the first two nights will not have to qualify on Saturday and will be seeded directly into the A Main event. They will contest “The Super Six Dash” to determine the lineup for the first three rows of the 40-lap finale. The complete racing format can be viewed at the following link https://bit.ly/2XgT8Wv. The link to the Oval Nationals points structure is https://bit.ly/399fcoo.

The Thursday and Friday main events will pay $5,000.00 each to win and $500.00 to start. Saturday’s 40-lap finale will pay $10,000.00 to win and $1,000.00 to start. The complete purse for all three nights is available at the following link https://bit.ly/3tTm1Et.

Macri Heading West

by Ron Rodda

Lincoln, CA…Later this month Anthony Macri will experience two events for his first time ever, coming to California and racing in the Aberu Vineyards 27th Trophy Cup Presented by Rudeen Racing.

Macri has never visited the Golden State and will be able to combine racing in the Cup with some tourist time. It was the dominant driver in the last Trophy Cup who facilitated the opportunity.

When Rico Abreu was in Pennsylvania Macri mentioned to him he had an interest in racing the Cup. Abreu said that the Tiner Hirst entry needed a driver. Macri made a phone call, and now is looking forward to racing the the most unique and demanding format in sprint car racing.

Ten years ago at age 12 Macri started his racing career in micro sprints, a division he race four years before making the big jump to 410 sprints. Acquiring a 410 engine in 2015, Macri basically spent that year practicing with it, racing twice at a local track. In 2016 he raced a full schedule in a 410, a move that was partially made because he was not old enough to race a 305 at local tracks due to sanctioning rules.

The last couple of years have brought success to Macri’s program with 11 wins so far this year, 9 last year, and around four for the years before. As to preparing for the trip west to a track he has never seen, Macri stated his plans.

“I’ll watch some videos and when I get out there I’ll talk to the guys I’m running with and get as much in notes as possible and go at it Thursday,” said Macri. “Obviously you can’t lie back and I think I will be able to go at it hard from the start I’m excited to work with the guys and hopefully we can have a good showing. Obviously I want to do well and do well for the guys.”

Driving the Tiner Hirst Enterprise car is an excellent option for the Dillsburg, PA driver and last weekend finishing 4th in a World of Outlaws race at Williams Grove shows that Macri is ready to experience the intensity of a Trophy Cup.

Schatz finds podium, top-ten in National Open double; “Speed Palace” invasion ahead

Dates: Friday and Saturday, October 1st-2nd Event: Williams Grove Speedway National Open Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Track: Williams Grove Speedway (Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania) Donny Schatz A-Main Finishes (Start): Friday: 3rd (4th) Saturday: 6th (7th)

2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Fourth | 9458 points (204 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 4, 2021) - Donny Schatz may have missed the top of the podium, but the ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion was certainly in the conversation, concluding the two-day Williams Grove Speedway National Open with a pair of top-ten finishes, highlighting the weekend blockbuster with a third-place score during the National Open preliminary on Friday, October 1.

In fact, Schatz’ preliminary effort was nearly flawless, kicking off the evening second-fastest time during his respective group of qualifying time trials, all before earning a victory during heat race competition. A fourth-place finish during the evening’s dash set the stage for Schatz’ eventual podium outcome.

The following evening, Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Carquest Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Sage Fruit/Digital Ally/Advance Auto Parts/Rush Truck Centers/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, finished sixth in the $75,000-to-win National Open finale, bumping ahead one spot after starting from the inside of row four.

Similar to Friday, Schatz kicked-off the National Open finale program with a top-tier qualifying effort, fifth in his respective group, eventually winning his respective heat race.

“The guys are always digging and working hard to find ways to get better,” Schatz said during Friday’s preliminary interview. “It feels good to be on the podium, but we’re working for wins. We won’t be satisfied until we’re on top of the podium.”

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with a two-day World of Outlaws outing at the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” on Friday and Saturday, October 8-9. Dubbed the Nittany Showdown, the two-day blockbuster will award $10,000 and $15,000, respectively, as well as conclude all World of Outlaws competition in the Keystone State for the 2021 season.

Schatz finished seventh and 11th during the 2020 Nittany Showdown.

Late Issues End Justyn Cox and C&M Motorsports’ Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals

PETERSEN MEDIA- Heading to Silver Dollar Speedway over the weekend for the Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals, Justyn Cox returned to the seat of the C&M Motorsports No. 7c for the first time since late August. Running 14th on Friday night, a part failure on Saturday night would end the team’s race early while battling for a position inside the Top-Five.

“It was great to get back in the No. 7c,” Justyn Cox said. “With regional fires kind of cancelling an entire month of our schedule, it was good to get back with Cody and Mandi and go race in Chico, CA. Unfortunately, it was kind of a tough weekend, but still fun nonetheless.”

Friday night would see Cox time the Berco Redwood/Berry Lumber/Legacy Specialties No. 7c entry in 10th fastest in his qualifying flight with 66 cars checked into the pit area.

Using the World of Outlaws format over the weekend, Cox’s 10th quick effort would line him up fifth in his heat race on a surface that was extremely hooked up which made passing difficult. Able to finish fifth, Cox would earn an automatic transfer into the 30-lap feature event where he took the green flag from the 19th starting position.

As the track went away a little for the feature, passing would still be tough as the surface was still very fast. With much of the field going the same speed as they navigated around the mile bullring, Cox would work his way up to 14th where he would finish.

Back in action on Saturday night for the Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals finale, Cox would get his night off to a bit of a better start as he timed in eighth fastest in his qualifying flight as 69 cars checked in for battle on this night.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Cox would earn a third place finish which improved his feature event starting position a couple of rows and put him in the 12th starting position for the 40-lap finale.

Following pre-race track prep, Cox would slip back to 14th on the start as he settled in for what would be a wild race. As the fuel load burned off of the car after the race’s early stages, Cox would start to work his way forward.

Getting up into sixth, Cox would look for a position inside the Top-Five, but trouble would arise as he raced through turns one and two on the 25th lap. Having a rear axle fail, Cox would slide over the edge of the speedway and coast to a stop as his Fall Nationals would come to a close 15 laps shy of the finish.

“It was a bummer to have a part failure end our night, because our car was getting better with each lap on Saturday,” Cox said. “Glad to get back racing with this team, and looking forward to Hanford with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour on Friday night.

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

ON TAP: Cox and C&M Motorsports will be in action at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA on Friday night.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-27, Wins-2, Top 5’s-6, Top 10’s-17

B Main Miscue Ends Joel Myers Jr’s Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals

PETERSEN MEDIA: Spending his weekend in Chico, CA at the Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals, Joel Myers would finish 16th in Friday night’s opening night feature event before a miscue in Saturday’s ‘B’ would bring his weekend to an early end.

“Friday night we had good car speed, but the track made it really difficult to pass,” Joel Myers Jr said. “Saturday night was more of a struggle for us, and in the ‘B’, I got up over the cushion and it resulted into me getting into the wall and causing enough damage to end our night.”

With a robust 66 cars jammed into the pit area on Friday night, the Sebastopol, CA native got his weekend off to a very good start as he timed the All About Fire Protection/Dirt Dudes/Amerikote backed No. 46jr entry in seventh fastest in his qualifying flight.

Lining up fourth in his heat race, Myers would find himself up in the third position until his car would bike up in turns three and four, relegating him to a fourth-place finish but still locking him into the opening night feature event.

With the track still heavy and narrow as the feature event came to life, Myers Jr would have trouble mounting a charge to the front as everyone was able to keep up a similar pace in the middle of the field where he ran. Slipping back to 16th, Myers would continue to look for a way forward, but on this night nothing was there.

As the 30-lapper came to a close, ‘Jr’ would close the night out with a 16th place finish.

Saturday night saw a few more cars join the fun as 69 entrants would check in for the final event of the season at Chico, CA’s Silver Dollar Speedway. Going out 15th in the first flight of time trials, “Jr” would time in 15th fastest and put himself in an early hole.

Finishing eighth in his heat race, the 15-year-old gasser would be forced into the ‘B’ Main where he would line up ninth as he would look for one of four tickets into the 40-lap feature event.

As the semi came to life, Myers Jr would go to work on the high side of the speedway. Working his way forward, the fifth lap would see the car get upset on the cushion, and Myers Jr would get into the front stretch wall and cause damage to his right-rear wheel and fuel cell.

With the damage, he made the decision to head back to the pit area and bring his weekend to a close.

“Saturday night, I just got the car a little upset and we got sucked into the wall and that was that.” Myers said. “Thanks to my guys for their hard work, and we are looking forward to getting back in the 410ci car this weekend.”

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.

ON TAP: Myers Jr and his team will head to Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA this weekend where they will run the Kings of Thunder 410ci show on Friday night, and the King of the West 410ci race on Saturday night.

Kalib Henry Nets Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals Title

PETERSEN MEDIA: Kalib Henry and the McColloch Motorsports team flexed their muscles at the Pacific Sprints Fall Nationals in Chico, CA over the weekend. Finishing third amongst the 66 entrants on Friday night, Henry was even better on Saturday as he picked up the feature event win against the robust 69 cars that were in action.

“This McColloch Motorsports team has worked really hard all year to get this car this strong, and its pretty cool everything came together at one of the biggest races of the year,” Henry said. “Nick, Kerry, my dad, and I, have all really put our heads together and the last few races we have been really good. Really excited to pick up this win in honor of both the Allard and Sherman families.”

Friday night got off to a strong start for Henry as he was the fastest qualifier in both his flight and overall, aboard the McColloch’s RV Repair/ Davis Truck Painting/Driven Homes, Inc. backed No. 17 entry.

Using the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series format over the weekend, Henry would line up on the pole of his heat race. On a locked down Silver Dollar Speedway racing surface, Henry would lead from start to finish and lock himself in to the always important Dash.

Pulling the seven pill, Henry would pick up a couple of positions which improved his feature event starting position as the fourth place finish put him in the second row for the 30-lap preliminary night feature event.

When the race came to life, Henry would slip back to fifth but would slowly work his way forward as the race got into an extended green flag run. As the leaders got into traffic late in the race, Henry would work into the third position as he set his sights on Kyle Hirst and Tanner Carrick who ran in front of him.

Looking to make it a three car battle for the lead, a caution on lap 25 would take the leaders out of traffic and put them into single file formation.

As the lead duo of Carrick and Hirst broke away in the final dash to the checkered, Henry would hang to the final spot on the podium.

Saturday night’s finale saw Henry get off to another strong start as he would time in third fastest in his qualifying flight and secure another front row starting position in his heat race.

Having a wing valve blow apart as he lined up for the first heat, Henry would have to deal with a cockpit and helmet full of power steering fluid. Getting a good initial start, the yellow would fly and negate his start. The second start would see Henry guess when to go as his vision was a bit hindered and it would be too early as he was called for a jump and penalized a row.

Ultimately finishing third in the heat race, Henry would lock into the 40-lap finale where he would take the green flag from the ninth starting position.

In a while 40-lap feature event, Henry would mind his own business and avoid some of the on-track issues as he slowly worked his way forward.

Using restarts to his advantage, Henry would soon find himself in the second position as he closed in on the race lead.

A late restart would see Henry use it to his advantage once again as he was able to get out front and never look back. Henry would pull away from the field and give the McColloch Motorsports team their first win of the season, and give himself and the team their first Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals win.

“I was in second during a late red with 16 laps left in the race and told my guys the left rear maybe had 15-laps left if we were lucky,” Henry said. “My dad told me it was a good thing we only had 16 laps left and to push it. We were good, it worked out, and it is a really cool race to win.”

McColloch Motorsports would like to thank McColloch’s RV Repair, Davis Truck Painting, Driven Homes, Inc., ART Speed Equipment, RE Technologies, Hansen Machine, ADCO Driveline, and Gary Morgan Graphics for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 13, Wins: 1, Top-5’s: 6, Top-10’s- 8

ON TAP: McColloch Motorsports and Henry will be back in action on Friday night at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA.

TRENT WILLIAMS LOOKS FOR SECOND BARONA SPEEDWAY WIN OF 2021 THIS SATURDAY NIGHT

(Hesperia, CA, October 1, 2021) Thus far in the 2021 season, Trent Williams has only visited the Barona Speedway one time. That was on May 1st. When he left to come home after the races that night, he had an extra $1,000.00 in his wallet after winning the main event. This Saturday night, the winner’s share has doubled, and Williams will be on hand in an attempt to fatten his wallet one more time.

Saturday’s race on the San Diego County mile dirt oval is an open show featuring 410 and 360 sprint cars. It will also be the last traditional sprint car race at the track in 2021. Combine those two factors with the $2,000.00 winner’s share of the purse and it should draw some non-locals, including Williams, to vie for the extra cash.

Coming off a third-place finish in the CAS Sprint Car Series at the Central Arizona Speedway on Labor Day weekend, Williams warmed up for the Barona race with an appearance in the USAC/CRA Series last Saturday at the Perris Auto Speedway. Despite only being at Perris two times earlier this year, the last of which was nearly five months earlier, Williams made the crowd sit up and take notice with a lap of 16.541 in qualifying. That was good enough for the fifth fastest time on the night.

After the impressive performance in time trials, Williams finished fifth in his heat race. That placed him in eighth for the start of the 30-lap “13th Annual Glenn Howard Memorial.” He started alongside his racing mentor, seven time series champion Damion Gardner. Early on, Hesperia, California based Williams slipped as far back as 13th. However, he methodically moved his way back to ninth by the time the checkers ended the race.

The ninth-place result is Williams' best in three appearances at Perris this year. It gave him five top 10 finishes in nine races this season and all five have come in the last seven outings. In addition to his May 1st win at Barona, he has been on the podium two other times this year when he finished third at Ventura on July 10th, and the aforementioned race in Arizona on Labor Day weekend.

If you wish to see “T-Dub” in action on Saturday, the Barona Speedway is located minutes from the Barona Resort & Casino at 1754 Wildcat Road in Lakeside (92040). The track website is https://baronaspeedway.com/ and the office phone number is (619) 749-8115. Gates will open at noon on Saturday with the first race at 5:00. Fans can bring coolers and barbecues if they wish.

Williams would like to thank the following marketing partners for making it possible to run his Maxim Chassis/Shaver Engines #52V in the 2021 season. Victory Boys Performance, Motul, NGK Spark Plugs and Sorrento Homes. If you or your business would like to be a part of the Cal State Fullerton marketing graduate’s racing team, please call (760) 780-8782 or mailto:trent.williams.racing@gmail.com .

EDDIE TAFOYA JR. GETS ANOTHER TOP FOUR FINISH AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY – SUBMITS OVAL NATIONALS ENTRY

(Chino Hills, CA, September 30, 2021) Shaking off the disappointment from a frustrating three race trip to Northern California, Eddie Tafoya Jr. put his best foot forward and came home with a fourth-place finish last Saturday night in the “13th Annual Glenn Howard Memorial” at Perris Auto Speedway. The result was his third top four finish in a row at the famous Southern California half-mile clay oval.

Tafoya, who lives in Chino Hills, California, had been waiting for two weeks to get back on the track since the sojourn to NorCal. From the outset of hot laps until the end of the 30-lap main event, it was clear to everyone in the pits and the grandstands that he was back on his game.

Tafoya put the eye-catching #51T through its paces starting in qualifying, when he toured the track that is only 30-minutes from his home, in a time of 16.456. That was good for the fourth best time of the night, and it was his fastest qualifying time at Perris in 2021. The handsome racer is one of only a handful of drivers who have qualified in the 16 second bracket each time they have appeared at the track this year.

After starting fifth and finishing third in his 10-lap heat race, Tafoya earned a spot on the outside of the second row for the 30-lap finale. The confident driver drove a smooth race and never slipped out of the top five. When the checkered ended the race, he had an impressive fourth-place finish. In his last three starts on the well-known track, Tafoya has finished third once and fourth, two times.

Tafoya will have one more appearance at Perris, on October 23rd, before the “25th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals.” That race will be held on November 4th, 5th and 6th and will match the biggest stars from the Midwest against the best stars from the West Coast. As evidence that he is anxious to rumble at the Ovals, Tafoya was one of the first drivers to file an entry for the prestigious race.

This Saturday, the Specialty Fastener’s team will head east to Arizona for the first time in 2021 for the annual “Hall of Fame Classic" at the Arizona Speedway. For Tafoya and the others, the race is offering a rich $4,000.00 winner’s purse and it will be a warmup to the “Western World Championships” in November. As always, fans can meet Eddie, his crew and purchase one of his shirts in the pits after the races.

For those who wish to attend Saturday’s race in the “Copper State,” Arizona Speedway is located at 48700 N. Ironwood Road, San Tan Valley, AZ (85140). Spectator gates will open at 4:00 p.m. with racing at 7:00. Fans can get more information at the track’s website at https://www.arizonaspeedway.net/ or by calling the office at (480) 926-6688.

Fans can follow Tafoya on Instagram @eddietafoya51 and can use the same contact to purchase shirts via mail.

Tafoya and his team would like to thank the following sponsors for being a part of the 2021 racing campaign. Specialty Fasteners, BR Performance, DRC Chassis, Ryder Racing Engines, Benic Enterprises, Simpson, and Bell. If you or your company would like to become a part of the team in 2021, please give them a call or send an Email to the contact information at the top of this press release.

BRODY ROA TAKES FIFTH IN GLENN HOWARD MEMORIAL – HEADS TO ARIZONA THIS SATURDAY

(Cypress, CA, September 30, 2021) Brody Roa posted another top five finish when he placed fifth in last Saturday night's “Glenn Howard Memorial” at Perris Auto Speedway. This Saturday sees the veteran driver and his team off to Arizona for the “Hall of Fame Classic” at the Arizona Speedway.

Saturday’s finish gave Roa 10 top five finishes in the first 14-races in 2021. That sounds good, but the driver expects more. Of his 10 top five finishes, nine have been top threes. Included in those were two wins at Perris Auto Speedway.

Last Saturday, the Garden Grove, California driver qualified third fastest when he blazed around the famous half-mile clay oval in a time of 16.369. He started sixth and finished fourth in the third 10-lap heat race of the night. That put him in the fifth starting spot for the 30-lap main event. The “Pride of Garden Grove” was never worse than sixth in the main event and he came home fifth on a night when there was very little passing in front or behind him.

This Saturday, Roa and the crew will aim their rig for the Arizona Speedway in San Tan Valley for the annual “Hall of Fame Classic.” It will be the first time for Roa at the track south of Phoenix since last November. The race pays $4,000.00 to win and it will be a warmup for November’s “Western World Championships.”

Going into the race in the “Copper State,” Roa, 30, is still second in the USAC/CRA championship point standings. While he is second, he is only 67-points out of first place and he is 102-points in front of the third-place driver. With seven races left in the 2021 campaign, there is still a lot of time and a lot of points available.

For those who wish to cheer for Roa in person at Saturday’s race in the “Copper State,” Arizona Speedway is located at 48700 N. Ironwood Road, San Tan Valley, AZ (85140). Spectator gates will open at 4:00 p.m. with racing at 7:00. Fans can get more information at the track’s website at https://www.arizonaspeedway.net/ or from the office by calling (480) 926-6688.

Like always, Roa and the crew will have shirts available for fans in the pits after the last race of the night.

Fans who would like to purchase Brody Roa merchandise, but who cannot attend a race, can check out the online store that is packed with great items including t-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, beanies, baby onesies, plush blankets, jigsaw puzzles, stickers, notebooks, tote bags, wine tumblers, mugs, bandana pet collars and more. To see the full line, please visit the following website https://www.brodyroa.com/shop/.

Roa and the team would like to thank the following for being part of the 91R’s 2021 campaign. HD Industries, Burris Racing, Sander Engineering, Biker Bruce Fisher, Inland Rigging, ALR Virtual Services, Caltrol, Competition Suspension, K-1 Race Gear, Molecule, Rod End Supply, Baldwin Filters and Jambo BBQ Pits. In addition, the veteran driver offers thanks to Fastenal, Coopers Propane, Total Lubricants, Marina Pools, TJM Oilfield Distribution, Certex, and Biker Bruce for sponsoring the #8M.

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

FALL CLASSIC WEEKEND NEXT UP FOR KOT & AST SPRINT CARS; SOMS EVENT CANCELLED

By Tommy Goudge (September 30, 2021) – The Pinty’s Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car series and Action Sprint Tour Crate Sprint Car series fueled by Pinty’s are set for their final visits to Humberstone Speedway in 2021. In the case of the Knights of Thunder, a championship will also be decided this weekend.

SCHEDULE UPDATE Management from Southern Ontario Motor Speedway and officials from the Knights of Thunder series and Action Sprint Tour have mutually decided to cancel the Sprint Car portions of the event scheduled for October 9. The event has been replaced on both the KoT and AST schedules with an October 2 event at Humberstone Speedway.

“We look forward to working with the management at SOMS to create some amazing Sprint Car events there in 2022,” stated KoT and AST series director Clinton Geoffrey.

THE FALL CLASSIC Already set to be a big event at Humberstone even before the additions to Saturday’s lineup, The Fall Classic presented by Nitro 54 Variety and Burger Barn will now feature two action-packed nights of racing. The two Sprint Car tours are set to race on Friday, October 1 and Saturday, October 2, along with two $2,500-to-win 358 Modified races, two $1,000-to-win Sportsman Modified races, two Street Stock races, and a Mini Stock race on Saturday.

Jordan Poirier has won all three Knights of Thunder events held at Humberstone this season, including a last-lap pass to steal victory from Jim Huppunen on July 31. Poirier has a host of challengers looking to end his winning streak, including 2021 Humberstone podium finishers Cory Turner, Ryan Turner, Huppunen, Travis Cunningham, and Josh Hansen.

Like his Knights of Thunder counterpart, Jacob Dykstra has won all three Action Sprint Tour events held at Humberstone this season. Six other drivers have claimed podium finishes at Humberstone this season, including Allan Downey, Steven Beckett, Nick Sheridan, Lucas Smith, Curtis Gartly, and Ryan Fraser. Parity has been a theme at Humberstone for AST; Dykstra and Downey have claimed top five finishes in all three events, but no other driver has multiple top fives at Humberstone this season.

EXTRA CASH The crew from APTN’s popular Friday Night Thunder TV series has put up some extra cash for Sprint Car drivers to go after this weekend; each heat race winner during The Fall Classic will receive $100, and drivers who attend both nights will be eligible for three random draws for $100 each. Visit www.aptn.ca/fridaynightthunder for more information on the show which takes you inside the exhilarating and dangerous world of Sprint Car racing as seen through the lives of five Indigenous racing families.

CHAMPIONSHIP CHASES Jordan Poirier heads into the weekend with a 44 point advantage over Ryan Turner in the Knights of Thunder standings, while Jim Huppunen is just 12 points behind Turner. Josh Hansen and DJ Christie hold spots in the top five, while Travis Cunningham, Cory Turner, Liam Martin, Tyler Rand, and Holly Porter round out the top ten. Jamie Turner is just two points behind Porter; he and several others still have a good chance to get into the top ten and claim a share of the 2021 points fund.

Four races remain on the 2021 Action Sprint Tour schedule – two at Humberstone this weekend, and two at Brockville’s upcoming Fall Nationals. Jacob Dykstra holds a commanding 76 point advantage over Allan Downey in the AST standings, while Nick Sheridan, Eric Gledhill, and Darren Dryden hold top five positions. Lucas Smith, Brett Stratford, Rob Neely, Dereck Lemyre, and Dale Curran make up the remainder of the top ten.

Hagar Salvages Top-10 Finish During Fall Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (Sept. 30, 2021) - Derek Hagar posted his 22nd top-10 result of the season last Saturday during the Fall Nationals at Riverside International Speedway.

Hagar placed third in a heat race to open the action at the tricky bullring.

"We weren't that good and the track was greasy in the heat," he said. "I made the call to free the car up and freed it up too much. The track didn't start getting sticky as quick as I thought it would. I was way free and didn't have any drive. We're always tight when the track has moisture so I was trying to be on the free side and went too far. We backed up to fourth and got a spot back to finish third."

That lined him up on the inside of the sixth row in the main event. Hagar battled his race car during the feature as well as he gained a trio of positions to finish eighth for his sixth top 10 in seven races this month.

"I kept the car free because in the 305 sprint car feature, which was two races before ours, they were about to tip over because it was so tacky," he said. "We pushed out there and the track started shining up. I knew I was going to be in trouble.

"I held on for the 30 laps. You just try to finish the race. The track made a total 180 from what I thought it was going to do. I couldn't do a slide job without losing the right rear and about spinning out. I had to pick my battles and be able to take advantage of passing someone when I could."

Hagar planned on tackling the Short Track Nationals this weekend, but the event at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., was postponed three weeks until Oct. 22-23 because of weather concerns. That leaves this weekend dormant for Hagar, who returns to action on Oct. 8-9 at Riverside International Speedway with the USCS Series.

"Those will be my last two events of the year," he said. "We need to go out with a bang. We need to pick up some more wins. We want to tally more wins and get ready for next season. With Short Track Nationals getting rained out this week it pushes our season a little further into October. We're excited to do the USCS event at Riverside and hopefully pick up a win or two. Then we'll try to get our first Short Track Nationals title."

Wilson Sees Improvement After Making World of Outlaws and All Star Shows at Eldora Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ROSSBURG, Ohio (Sept. 30, 2021) - Two top 20s wouldn't normally please Greg Wilson, but last weekend's results at Eldora Speedway compared to his performance during the Kings Royal this summer showed progress.

The Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics backed Seeling Motorsports driver finished 17th during the BeFour the Crowns Showdown on Friday before ending 16th on Saturday at the 4 Crown Nationals.

It was a step forward after Wilson only made one of four World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series main events at the half-mile oval during the marquee event in July.

"We went down there with a little different approach, hoping that we'd be a lot better than July and we were," he said. "On Friday we raced our way in and was pretty competitive. On Saturday we gambled on some stuff and it really hurt us qualifying and throughout the night. But it was one of those things you had to do it once to be sure and it just wasn't the right move."

The weekend started on Friday with Wilson qualifying 27th quickest to open the World of Outlaws show. He then advanced from seventh to sixth place in a heat race, from fourth to second in the Last Chance Showdown and from 22nd to 17th in the A Main.

"With the emphasis on qualifying, especially at an Outlaws show, it's something we need to continue to improve on," he said. "We are and have been throwing stuff at it. We're better than we have been, but still not great. Fortunately we had a really good car in our heat race and got by some guys, which put us in a good position for the Last Chance Showdown. We were really good there and could have won. You don't put yourself in a bad position. You try to gain some laps to work on your car before the feature-time.

"In the feature there were times I thought we were as high as a 11 th-place car, but we faded toward the end. With the things we did to the car we probably needed to make some adjustments and we didn't because we've been good lately."

Wilson also made progress on Saturday after starting the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions event by timing in eighth quickest in his group and 24 th overall. He gained two spots to place sixth in a heat race before picking up two more positions in the feature to end 16th.

"It was something with the way the All Star rules are and their format, we took a pretty heavy gamble on tire selection," he said. "It bit us. And then the track never really cleaned up to where it'd benefit us late in the night. It just didn't play out that way. We left there knowing that we can do that in certain spots, but definitely not here with the way the tire rule is and what they've done to the track."

Wilson plans to return to action this Saturday at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio, where he was victorious during his most recent visit.

KYLE HARDY EARNS HIS 1ST PACE RUSH LATE MODEL NATIONAL WEEKLY SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP; CAREER 1ST WIN FOR BILL KESSLER COMES AT PPMS WHILE CHELSIE KRIEGISCH WINS RUSH MODS TO BECOME 1ST FEMALE RUSH TRACK CHAMPION

By Marcie Barlow

(September 30, 2021) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Pulaski, PA)...The 2021 racing season is entering the homestretch; however this past weekend’s Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC action featured side-by-side racing which saw third generation competitor Bill Kessler capture his first career feature victory. Chelsie Kriegisch also made history by becoming the first female to win a RUSH track champion following her win in the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. Levi Crowl also tallied win number six in RUSH Late Model action at Winchester Speedway, while John Waters ended his more than year Touring Series winless drought. Congrats to Kyle Hardy on winning the $5,000 National Weekly Series Championship in his first year of RUSH Late Model racing.

The Kessler name is very well known and respected in western Pennsylvania as many long time race fans remember when Pappy Kessler’s Auction Barn sponsored #09 cars that dominated racing action in the tri-state area. This past Saturday at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway, another member of the Kessler Family put his name in the record book as Bill Kessler captured his first ever feature victory. The first 18 laps of the event were caution-free with Kessler taking control at the start with standout Kyle Lukon in second. Kessler was able to keep a comfortable distance between himself and Lukon until a caution on lap 18 slowed the field. The restart gave Lukon the opportunity he needed; however, he was unable to capitalize on it. Kessler, who chose the inside lane on the restart was able to pull away and score the popular victory. Kessler became the amazing 11th different winner in 17 races this season at PPMS and third to score his first career win! Lukon held on for the runner-up spot with Logan Zarin, Colton Flinner and Nico Dabecco completing the top five.

An earlier than expected finish to her work day and a dedicated father, who installed a borrowed transmission in her ride, meant that Chelsie Kriegisch made a late day decision to head to Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. This decision certainly paid off for Chelsie as she scored the victory in RUSH Sportsman Modified Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly Series action. Kriegisch led the entire distance of the 18-lap main event to claim the win, which was the 200th race all-time for the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. Jacob Jordan and Cole Edwards recorded their career best finishes in second and third beating Kole Holden. It was Kreigisch's second career PPMS win, but first in more than three years and her third overall in RUSH Sportsman Modified competition. The victory also clinched the divisional championship for Kriegisch at the speedway, making her the first female to win a RUSH track championship.

Pace Performance RUSH Late Model action at Winchester Speedway on Saturday saw Levi Crowl take the lead at the start of the main event before the caution flag waved forcing a complete restart. When the action resumed Crowl once again pulled away from his fellow competitors and built up a full straightaway lead by lap six. Crowl entered lapped traffic on lap 10 which gave Travis Campbell the opportunity he needed to close the gap on Crowl. The caution flag would wave again on lap 15 as a rain shower moved in. After a slight delay the rain ended and the racing action resumed with Crowl out front and Jeremy Pinkerton in second. Several late race cautions would slow the field in the final 10 circuits; however, Pinkerton was unable to capitalize on them and Crowl went on to score his sixth win of the season on the RUSH circuit. The $1,200 victory also clinched the $1,000 RUSH “Track Pack” Championship for Crowl. Pinkerton came home in second with Campbell in third. James Lichliter and Josh Williams rounded out the top five. A strong field of 21 cars were on hand.

The RUSH Late Model Flynn's Tire - Born2Run Lubricants Touring Series and RUSH Sprint Cars were scheduled for two nights of competition last Friday and Saturday at Genesee Speedway; however, Mother Nature ended the 2021 season a bit prematurely at the Batavia, NY track as rain washed out night two of the "Topless Nationals" as heat race action was getting underway.

Friday night was another thriller for the Late Model Tour as John Waters out-dueled Joe Martin and Jeremy Wonderling to end more than a three-year Tour winless drought. Waters earned $2,000 for his first victory of 2021 and became the seventh different Tour winner of 2021. Michael Duritsky, Jr. came back from a flat tire to finish fourth. Jimmy Johnson was fifth for the second straight Genesee Tour race and also was able to earn the $1,000 "Track Pack" Championship.

The RUSH Sprint Cars meanwhile competed in their richest event of the season and it was Chad Ruhlman making a last lap pass of Gale Ruth, Jr. Ruhlman's $1,000 victory was his eighth of the season and moved him to within three points of Ruth for the $5,000 to-win Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Championship. Ruhlman has now won all four RUSH Sprint races held at Genesee in the four-year history. Ryan Fraley matched his career best Sprint Car finish in third. Blaze Myers was fourth over Steve Pedley, who was subbing for Rod George.

After Duritsky set fast time over what would have been a record Genesee RUSH Late Model Tour field of 30 competitors, the rain set in that would eventually wash out the show. During the afternoon, the drawings for the annual Traveling "Manufacturers Night" presented by MSD Performance took place. Competing drivers that were in the top 15 in track points at Genesee, Fulton, and Woodhull were eligible for the more than $13,000 in product giveaways. Each driver ended up receiving a prize package valued at a minimum of $441. Several drivers took home multiple prizes including Genesee regular Dave DuBois, who was the big winner. DuBois was the lucky recipient of the two top prizes; the Lincoln Electric Multi-Purpose Welder and utility card along with a Velocita-USA Team Drivers Suit with a total value of $1,875! The complete winners list is posted below.

Goldesberry Earns another Top 10 To Finish IRA Season

Springfield, IL (September 30, 2021) – Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team had two races scheduled last weekend with the IRA but the Friday night race at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, WI was rained out. The IRA season came to a close on Saturday night in Plymouth, WI.

With 25 cars checked in for the finale, Goldesberry would qualify 11th quick. This would put the Rockstar Energy Drink #65 on the pole of Heat 2. Goldesberry would not get a great start and find himself in third position after the first lap. He would try to gain a few spots back but would fall short and finish third. For the feature, the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim would line up in the sixth row. Goldesberry would get a good start and was able to pass some cars in the first few laps. After a couple cautions, Goldesberry was able to gain a few more spots and come home in eighth on a tricky racing surface.

“Plymouth was a little frustrating. I felt we should have had more speed. Our car didn’t take off in the heat race which cost us a chance at making the dash. This is an engine that was completely rebuilt and the fueling isn’t what it was prior so we are still figuring it out. We just had it too rich.” said Goldesberry. “We still had a lot of fans that came by to pick up some Rockstar one last time for the year.”

Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team will take a few weeks off and finish the season with the World of Outlaws at Lakeside Speedway on Friday October 22nd.

SEASON STATS- 34 races, 1 win, 9 top 5’s, 17 top 10’s

Nittany 40 at Clinton County Saturday

One of the biggest IMCA/RaceSaver events of 2021 will draw teams from the PA Sprint Series and other regional groups to Clinton County Speedway Saturday for the second running of the Nittany 40.

The interregional event will include a feature purse of more than $11,500; all feature starters will earn a minimum of $400. It is hosted by the Laurel Highlands Sprint Series and co-sanctioned by PASS. Dale Schweikart of Linden won last year’s inaugural event over Tyler Cochran, Scott Lutz, Garrett Bard, Jared Zionkowski, Derek Hauck, Ken Duke Jr., Jeffrey Weaver, Brad Mellott and Dylan Proctor. Nearly all of those drivers are expected to return.

Bard and Lutz are the newly crowned 2021 champions of PASS and LHSS, respectively, and the former is the defending IMCA/RaceSaver National Champion. Among the many other drivers to watch, Zionkowski won the last race at Clinton County for RaceSavers, and Hauck won the PASS feature last weekend at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The race winner will have a guaranteed starting spot in the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge, “The Blue Collar Classic,” at Port Royal Speedway on October 23.

If 48 or more cars attempt to make the starting field a separate non-qualifiers race will be added to the program, which also will include qualifying runs and heat races.

The day’s program at Clinton County also will include the C.W. Smith Memorial for pro stocks, plus racing for 270 and 600 micro sprints and 4-cylinder stocks.

The RaceSaver event is presented by Bill’s Happy Camper RV Sales & Service in Mill Hall, with Tebb’s Brothers Landscaping sponsoring fast time and the heat races.

Clinton County has grown in popularity for RaceSaver events and has been drawing strong fields for those races this season. The cars constitute the featured class every other week.

The track was the fourth ever to feature the then-new RaceSaver cars, running its first feature in 2001. An expected entrant this weekend, Todd Lynn of Hollidaysburg, finished fifth in that first race 20 years ago.

Speedway gates will open at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, with racing set to begin at 4:30.

On Saturday, Oct. 9, PASS will offer competitors and fans two options. The top 26 teams in 2021 points will race in support of the World of Outlaws at Port Royal Speedway, while the remaining competitors will join Mid Atlantic Sprint Series teams for a co-sanctioned event at BAPS Motor Speedway, joining super sportsman cars, three divisions of modifieds and classic cars.

McCarl Fifth in KWS Action at Keller Auto Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA, Austin McCarl and the Country Builders Racing team put together a great night as the Altoona, IA driver recorded a fifth-place finish.

“We didn’t get timed in as well as we would have liked, but we took advantage of the format and put ourselves in a good spot for the rest of the night,” McCarl said.

Timing the Country Builders/Ochoco West Lumber/Brown and Miller backed No. 88 mount in seventh fastest in time trials, McCarl would take full advantage of his front row starting position in heat race action.

Powering his way to the heat race win, McCarl would tabulate enough points to earn a spot in the Sunnyvalley Bacon Dash. Tweaking on a few things for the Dash and taking advantage of the six-lap race before the 30-lap feature, things felt good to McCarl as his third place finish put him in the second row for the 30-lap King of the West feature event.

When the race came to life, McCarl would slip back to the fifth position as he went to work on the bottom groove of the speedway. Briefly slipping back to sixth, McCarl would start to make up ground as he jumped into the fourth spot on lap 10.

Battling with the likes of Joel Myers Jr, Justin Sanders and Dominic Scelzi, McCarl would power his way into third as he would get stronger in the closing stages of the race.

With Sanders able to get back by McCarl to put him into fourth, a late move by Scelzi shuffled McCarl back to fifth where he would go on to close his night out.

“It was a good night for us, but with the way the track was we needed to do a few things different to be better on the bottom of the track,” McCarl noted. “This week we will drop the 360ci in the car and head back to Chico, CA. I am looking forward to getting another shot at the track this weekend.”

Austin McCarl and Country Builders Racing would like to thank Country Builders, Ochoco West Lumber, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, MAAS Brothers Powder Coating, Offill Family Farms, , HRP, FK Shocks, A.R.T. Enterprise, Engler Machine, Aurora Rod Ends, Schoenfeld, Wilwood, Kistler Engines, K1 Safety Gear, Bell Helmets, Maxim Chassis, B. Scadden Design, and Octane Ink for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 6, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 1, Top 10’s: 1

ON TAP: Country Builders Racing and Austin McCarl will head to Chico, CA this Friday and Saturday for the Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals.

 

 

Nienhiser Nets Two More Late Season Wins

PETERSEN MEDIA: A busy weekend of racing action saw Chapin, IL driver Paul Nienhiser pick up two more feature event wins on the season, as he also helped car owner Scott Bonar secure his second consecutive Sprint Invaders Owner’s Championship.

“It has been a lot of fun the last month or so,” Paul Nienhiser said. “To really come on at the end of the season has all of excited for the 2022 season ahead after we get through the upcoming holidays, but our season isn’t quite over just yet.”

Friday night, Nienhiser and the Paul Nienhiser Racing team checked in at Jacksonville Speedway, a track that Nienhiser has had immense success at over the years and has been extremely fast at the last few weeks.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, the hooked-up speedway didn’t allow for much passing, but Nienhiser was able to gain some valuable points as he finished in the second position.

Sitting sixth in points, Nienhiser rolled off the starting grid from the outside of the third row as he chased after his sixth win of the season. Simply going where the others were not, Nienhiser was able to work his way to the front of the field.

Putting his machine over the cushion, Nienhiser flirted with disaster each and every lap on the rough terrain but was able to quickly forge his way into the second position.

As the leader worked a couple lanes down from Nienhiser, the Chapin, IL pilot continued to hit his marks and surged to the point with just a few laps to go in the race. Out front, Nienhiser was able to secure his sixth win of the season.

Saturday night the scene shifted to 34 Raceway in Burlington, IA with the IRA Series for the Fall Haul as he climbed aboard the Midland Performance No. 50 machine.

Greeted with another extremely heavy and fast surface early in the night, Nienhiser would start and finish third in his heat race that was essentially a big hot lap session. Able to sneak directly into the feature event, Nienhiser would roll off from the 14th position in the feature event.

With the track still full of speed in the ‘A’, Nienhiser was able to make up some ground, but admitted to running a cautious race. Cracking the Top-10, Nienhiser would take the checkered in the ninth position which would be good enough to secure the Sprint Invaders Owner Championship for Scott Bonar.

Nienhiser’s long weekend would continue Sunday night as the Midland Performance team headed on to East Moline Speedway.

On a track that was racy early in the evening, Nienhiser would work his way from sixth to fourth in heat race competition and earn a spot in the Dash.

Going from sixth to second in the Dash, the redraw for the feature would see Nienhiser pull the six, putting him in the third row as he would look to match his performance from Friday evening.

With the track still very racy in the feature event, Nienhiser would slowly work his way forward, but it would take some time as he would hook up in a lot of back and forth action as he worked his way into the Top-three.

Sitting in third under a caution with just 11-laps left in the race, Nienhiser would get the better of the lead duo in two separate games of cat and mouse as he would get into the lead during the closing stages of the race.

Working the low side at one end of the track, and running the fence at the other, Nienhiser would race to his third Sprint Invaders win on the season.

“It feels good to get another win for Scott (Bonar) and his team,” Nienhiser said. “He always prepares a fast car, so to get him a win, and help him secure another championship is pretty cool.”

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil, Mason Sound, Innovative Design, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Wessler Bros. Agency, Bob Hawks Auto Body, Fierce Herbicide, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Kaeding Performance, Smith Titanium Products, Vortex Wings, Signature Signs and Design, and Team Simpson for their continued support.

2021 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-44, Wins-7, Top 5’s-11, Top 10’s-18

ON TAP: Nienhiser is idle this weekend before returning to action on October 8th at Jacksonville Speedway.

Walter caps 2021 campaign with top-10 IRA showing at Plymouth Dirt Track

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 29, 2021 – Following an unplanned three-week break to iron out a mechanical issue, Josh Walter and the Torque Racing team returned to action to notch a top-10 A-main showing in the 2021 Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series season finale, which was part of the fourth annual Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 25.

Walter opened the 2021 IRA curtain closer by turning in the 15th fastest qualifying lap in the 25-car field with a circuit of 11.484 seconds.

The 17th-year Sprint Car driver then lined up fifth in the first 10-lap IRA heat race before dropping back to sixth on lap 2 when Hunter Custer slipped past. Walter then battled back to work his way back around Custer in turn three on lap 4 before passing Wayne Modjeski exiting turn four on lap 8 to secure a fourth-place finish.

The heat race finish gave Walter the 14th starting spot in the 30-lap IRA main event. After moving around Robbie Pribnow into 13th on lap 2 Walter worked primarily the high groove of the well-manicured third-mile clay oval to power around Wayne Modjeski into 12th on lap 10.

After the first of two caution flags appeared on lap 16, Walter continued to ride in the 12th position before moving into 11th on lap 16 and 10th on lap 23 when he shot past the slowing car of Blake Nimee.

The second caution came out on lap 28 when Nimee spun to a stop in turn two. Walter used a strong restart to edge past Scotty Neitzel on the final lap en route to a ninth-place finish in a race won by Oklahoma’s Noah Gass.

“We had planned to do a lot of racing in September, but we broke a rocker arm during the last IRA race at Plymouth during the fair,” Walter said. “It took a little longer to get the part, so we had to miss a few races we had planned on running.

“It was good to get back out on the track and put together a pretty decent, clean night to close out the season,” he said. “I have to thank everyone that supported us throughout the season.”

Walter and the Torque Racing team closed the 2021 season with one top-five A-main finish, five top-10 A-main showings, two heat race wins, four IRA dash appearances and one IRA dash victory in 12 races, including 11 IRA events, on the way to a 17th-place finish in the final IRA point standings

The Torque Racing team had planned to compete in the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series Fuzzy Fassbender, Harry Neitzel, Rick Schmidt Tribute event on Friday, Sept. 24 at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. However, heavy rain showers hit the track late during motor heat, which forced the event to be cancelled.

Torque Racing sponsors for the 2021 season include Dlapa Construction, Brittany's School of Dance, Sheboygan by Owner, SCA Inc., Cow Pies, Full Throttle Ink, Lakehouse Bar & Grill, Home Transitions, Oostburg Concrete Products, RC Custom Design and Pedal Down Promotions

Silver Dollar Speedway

Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals Set for 28th Rendition This Weekend

(9-28-21) Chico, CA…For the 28th time the winged 360 sprint cars will close out the season at Silver Dollar Speedway with the Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals in tribute to Stephen Allard. This race started in 1992 as a two-day event. The popularity of the race grew so quickly that by 1994 the event expanded to a three-day show. In 2010, the Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals was reduced back to a two-day show. Racing takes place this Friday and Saturday night, October 1st & 2nd.

In 2014, Stephen Allard’s name was added to the title of the event. Allard, a Chico native and a two-time track champion, had told his family and friends that this race was always his favorite racing weekend. His name was added to the event after his sudden passing on Christmas Eve 2012. The entire racing community continues to miss Stephen Allard and this race is a helpful reminder of his lasting impact on our sport.

Over the course of it’s existence, no driver has won more Saturday night features than San Jose driver Tim Kaeding. The two-time Chico driving champ has won five times including the 2019 win. As with most racing, the 2020 event was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Kaeding is scheduled to defend his title on Saturday night. The most recent Saturday night winners of this event include Kyle Hirst (2018), Shane Golobic (2017), Andy Forsberg (2015&2016), Sean Becker (2014).

In 2019, a staggering 55-winged 360 sprint cars attended the Saturday night show. This year, car counts have swelled at most Chico events and another large field of cars are expected.

The winged 360 sprint cars are vying for over $30,000 of pure money spread out over the two-races. On Friday night, the winner of the feature event will receive $3,000. On Saturday, the winner will get $5,000. If you make the feature on Saturday, those drivers are guaranteed $400 to start. Each night is a separate show featuring qualifying, heat races and main events.

Joining the winged 360 sprint cars are the Hobby Stocks. All Hobby Stocks planning on racing these two nights must comply with Silver Dollar Speedway or Marysville Raceway rules. This year the Hobby Stocks have ruled the overall car counts at most Marysville races. The amount of excitement and pure entertainment they bring to the fans is second to none.

Pit gate opens at 2 PM each day. Front grandstand opens at 5 PM both days. Fans can avoid waiting for the front gate to open and purchase their tickets on line at www.silverdollarspeedway.com. Pricing for the event is also available at our website. Tickets are available to buy on the night of each race starting with the 5 PM opening of the front gate.

Ramey Earns Top 10 in First Appearance at 34 Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa (Sept. 28, 2021) - Gunner Ramey posted a top-10 performance during his first visit to 34 Raceway last Saturday night.

The Terry Doogs Racing driver adapted to the track quickly, starting seventh in his heat race and passing four cars to finish third to kick off the Sprint Invaders program.

"We were fast for sure, and faster than the second-place car, but we ran out of time to get there," he said.

Ramey's effort in his heat race earned a spot in the dash. He fell to eighth after nearly getting in a wreck on Lap 2 following contact with another driver. The contact bent the front end of the No. 21 machine and knocked the toe out of it. Ultimately, Ramey finished where he started - sixth.

Ramey found himself with good track position for the night's 25-car feature, lining up third. For the majority of the 30-lap feature Ramey ran in the fourth position, but traffic did not benefit his effort.

"We got into lapped traffic around Lap 10 and we got hung up trying to get by them, which really hurt us," he said. "We had a third- to fourth-place car for sure, but lapped traffic was tough to get around all night."

Close calls in traffic cost Ramey a couple positions and relegated him to a sixth-place outing.

Despite not getting the finish he hoped to achieve, Ramey was pleased with his overall performance.

"Overall, I thought it was a pretty solid night," he said. "We were fast right out of the gate and got to build our notebook. We learned some things that should help us out the next time we're back there."

Ramey planned to head to I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., this Friday and Saturday for the 34th annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. However, the event has been postponed until Oct. 22-23 because of the weather.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sides Excited for Williams Grove National Open This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - SARVER, Pa. (Sept. 28, 2021) - Jason Sides is bound for one of sprint car racing's biggest events of the season.

Sides invades Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., this Friday and Saturday for the $75,000-to-win Champion Racing Oil National Open.

"It's one of those deals where if you don't get qualified well it's not going to be a very good weekend," he said. "If you do you set yourself up for a good night. Right now we're going in trying get qualified well, get in the show and work from there."

Sides is coming off a 'safe' World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series weekend that featured races at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, and Lernerville Speedway.

"We were a little safe with our engine and really safe the second night," he said. "I had it too rich just trying to make sure we didn't hurt an engine."

Sides timed in 15th quickest before he placed fifth in a heat race on Friday during the BeFour the Crowns Showdown at Eldora Speedway. That locked him into the feature, in which he placed 22nd.

The weekend concluded on Saturday with the Commonwealth Clash at Lernerville Speedway. Sides qualified 29th quickest, but a charge from eighth to fifth in a heat race earned a lock-in position into the A Main. Sides gained a spot to finish 16th.

"It wasn't our best weekend," he said. "We're down to about 10 races this year. It'd be nice to end the year with a win, but right now some top 10s would be real good."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 24 - Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio - Qualifying: 15; Heat race: 5 (4); Feature: 22 (19).

Sept. 25 - Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa. - Qualifying: 29; Heat race: 5 (8); Feature: 16 (17).

Pokorski Motorsports’ final Plymouth
go around nets top-15 MSA result

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 28, 2021 – Following a long and successful tenure of regular open-wheel racing competition in the Winged Super Modified and 360 Sprint Car divisions, the Pokorski Motorsports team closed the book on its 29-year run at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis., during the fourth annual Wisconsin Sprint Car Championship on Saturday, Sept. 25.

Pokorski, who began his racing career in 1993 in the Eastern Wisconsin Stock Car Winged Super Modified division, has earned a large chunk of his 46 A-main victories and two EWSC Winged Super Modified championships in 2003 and 2004 at the Plymouth track under the Pokorski Motorsports banner.

Saturday’s 2021 Plymouth Dirt Track season finale saw Pokorski behind the wheel of the familiar blue No. 4 Pokorski Motorsports machine as he joined a field of 31 PDTR 360 Sprint Car drivers on hand for the event.

Pokorski started fourth in the third 10-lap 360 Sprint Car heat race and held the position throughout the event on a lightning fast track surface on the way to a fourth-place showing.

The 2014 Midwest Sprint Car Association Masters Series champion then started second in the 15-lap B main. Pokorski held the second spot in the early going before Kurt Davis slipped past to move the West Bend driver back to third on lap 11. Pokorski held on to finish third and claim a transfer spot to the 25-lap A main.

After lining up 19th in the 360 Sprint Car main event, Pokorski advanced to 17th place on lap 9. After a string of four consecutive caution flags, Pokorski restarted 15th on lap 18.

Pokorski then moved past Chris Clayton in the closing laps to secure a 14th-place showing in a race won by Jack Vanderboom.

“The car was really tight in hot laps,” Pokorski said. “We made some changes for the heat race and it helped, but it wasn't enough to make the car fast or comfortable. We made even bigger changes for the B main and got a little closer. The car was just okay for the feature. Overall, it was a very average result for our team, but a great night of racing and good fall weather for the fans.”

The Pokorski Motorsports team was in attendance for a Midwest Sprint Car Association event honoring Fuzzy Fassbender, Harry Neitzel and Rick Schmidt at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, Sept. 24. However, persistent rain showers hit the track during engine warm ups, forcing the remainder of the event to be cancelled.

Pokorski Motorsports will hit the track for the final time for a pair of non-points Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car events at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. as part of the Wingless Nationals event, along with Wingless Sprint Cars and Legends, on Friday, Oct. 1 and Saturday, Oct. 2.

Paul Pokorski will take one more turn in the cockpit of the No. 4 Pokorski Motorsports 360 Sprint Car on Friday, Oct. 1 and Alex Pokorski will be behind the wheel as Pokorski Motorsports ends its 29-year run on Saturday, Oct. 2.

Spectator gates open at 4:30 p.m. with racing to start at 6:30 p.m. both nights.

Sponsors and supporters for the 2021 Pokorski Motorsports team are Petersen Septic Systems, Quest Engineering Inc., Goeden Auto Body, Goodwin Racing Engines, Hopf Farms, Kettle Moraine Landscaping, Novak's Service Center, Tisler Salvage Inc., Allied Bearing Corporation, RC Custom Design and Pedal Down Promotions

Tickets already purchased for this weekend will be good for the rescheduled date.

Online tickets will remain available while driver pre-entry will be extended to Monday, October 18.

Among a slew of early entries thus far is reigning STN kingpin Sam Hafertepe, Jr., who will vie to become just the sixth racer to score back-to-back STN wins along with the likes of Steve Kinser, Gary Wright, Tony Bruce, Jr., Sammy Swindell and Blake Hahn.

Westfall and RMM rally for top ten in Eldora’s 4-Crown Nationals

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (September 27, 2021) – Facing off against a loaded roster comprised of 43 USAC National Sprint Car Series entries, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports knew what they had to do to earn their place in Eldora Speedway’s 4-Crown Nationals main event, and capitalize is what they did, ultimately qualifying through their respective heat race before ending the evening with hard fought charge to the top ten.

Westfall, driver of Ray Marshall’s Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/Bumblebee Express/No. 33M, kicked off his evening at The Big E by recording the sixth fastest time during the second flight of qualifying time trials. Although only the top four in each heat race were locked into Saturday’s 4-Crown headliner, Westfall was undeterred and transferred, finishing third in the fourth heat race before lining up 15th on the A-Main starting grid.

When the dust finally settled, Westfall found himself six spots higher in the running order, concluding the 30-lap USAC contest ninth after starting 15th. Westfall concentrated on the middle and bottom grooves of Eldora’s surface to make progress, chasing former USAC national champion, Brady Bacon, for much of the distance.

“We’ve had the 4-Crown circled on our calendar since the beginning of the year. It’s one of the most competitive races on our schedule, but we were ready for it,” Westfall said, a two-time non-wing sprint winner in 2021 including a BOSS Series triumph at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway on July 24. “Ray Marshall gives us everything we need to be competitive and that clearly shows.”

An upcoming schedule for Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports has not yet been determined. Any information pertaining to the team’s agenda will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

Whittall caps important weekend with Selinsgrove National Open top-ten; Williams Grove National Open looms

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

VINCENTOWN, N.J. (September 27, 2021) – It was an important weekend to find speed, and that is exactly what Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports did.

Whittall, driver of the JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Brotherton Brewing Company, Beechwood Landscape Architecture and Construction LLC, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, FK Rod Ends, Stilo Helmets, Keizer Aluminum Wheels, Enterprise, Ground Blind Boys, No. 67 sprint car, entered Williams Grove Speedway’s Outlaw tune up, as well as Selinsgrove Speedway’s Jim Nace Memorial National Open over the weekend, concluding the pair with back-to-back top-ten finishes, all of which highlighted with an eighth-place score in the $20,000-to-win National Open at Selinsgrove.

The eighth-place outcome was the product of row six, concluding the 40-lapper four spots higher than where he started. Incidentally, finishing eighth has been a recurring theme for Whittall, as the Vincentown, New Jersey-native finished eighth in Selinsgrove’s Jack Gunn Memorial on August 28.

Whittall opened his recent two-race campaign with a tenth-place outcome at Williams Grove Speedway on September 24. The former Williams Grove winner climbed six spots to secure the stat booster; a perfect test session for the upcoming National Open featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series on Friday and Saturday, October 1-2. The 2021 Williams Grove Speedway National Open finale will award a $75,000 top prize.

“What a weekend for this team. We definitely needed that, especially with the World of Outlaws coming to town this week,” Justin Whittall explained. “Having that extra kick of confidence before the National Open will do wonders for us. It all starts with qualifying. That sets the tone for the entire evening, so we need to take advantage and capitalize. I’m ready to get started. It should be an exciting weekend.”

The two-day Williams Grove National Open will begin on Friday, October 1, with a $10,000-to-win preliminary bout, followed by the $75,000-to-win grand finale on Saturday, October 2.

Danny Dietrich second in Selinsgrove’s National Open; World of Outlaws visit to Williams Grove next

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (September 27, 2021) – Dietrich’s weekend results may not have ended in the manner he wanted, but the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native battled hard and added several marks to the stat book, knocking out another pair of top-ten finishes including a runner-up outcome in Selinsgrove Speedway’s Jim Nace Memorial National Open on Saturday, September 25.

Starting from the pole position, Dietrich battled for the race lead early, eventually snagging the top spot from Midwest hotshot and outside pole sitter, Brian Brown, on lap ten. Dietrich maintained control for the next 20 circuits, doing everything he could to block the progress of Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri. Unfortunately for Dietrich, the eighth-starting Macri proved to be too strong, as “Double-D” was forced to take a backseat to the eventual winner on lap 30. Dietrich kicked-off the Jim Nace Memorial with a heat race victory.

Just one night prior to his Selinsgrove podium, Dietrich participated in Williams Grove Speedway’s Outlaw Tune Up where he finished sixth after starting tenth.

“I don’t think we’ll ever be satisfied unless we win. We had a lot of speed this weekend, and my guys worked their butts off, but we were still short. We know what we have to do, so we’ll do everything we can to get ourselves into National Open shape this week,” Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, No. 48 sprint car. “We need to improve our qualifying effort, especially against the World of Outlaws. We can’t get ourselves in a hole…it will be tough to recover.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with Williams Grove Speedway’s National Open featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series on Friday and Saturday, October 1-2. The two-day blockbuster will be headlined with a $75,000-to-win main event on Saturday; the weekend will ignite with a $10,000 preliminary. “Double-D” will enter the program with six victories on the season, accomplishing his most recent at BAPS Motor Speedway on Thursday, September 16.

Home Sweet Home: Brock Zearfoss aims for success in Williams Grove Speedway’s National Open

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (September 27, 2021) – Despite a tough two days during visits to Eldora Speedway and Lernerville Speedway, highlighting the trip with a 12th-place score during Lernerville’s Commonwealth Clash on Saturday, September 25, the “Jonestown Jet” Brock Zearfoss is finally home, ready to take on the Pennsylvania Posse, as well as his fellow Outlaws, in the two-day Williams Grove Speedway National Open.

Headlining action at the world-famous paperclip on Friday and Saturday, October 1-2, the two-day National Open will act as the final “crown jewel” on the 2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series schedule, concluding with a $75,000-to-win main event on Saturday night. Action will begin with a $10,000-to-win preliminary on Friday.

Brock Zearfoss is certainly no stranger to battling the Posse and World of Outlaws at the famed Williams Grove Speedway. In fact, the Jonestown, Pennsylvania-native is former Outlaws winner in Mechanicsburg, scoring a Summer Nationals preliminary victory in 2017.

Zearfoss will enter the Williams Grove Speedway National Open ninth in the World of Outlaws driver standings padded by 21 top-ten finishes.

“We had a great trip throughout the West Coast, but it’s great to be home…there’s no place like home,” Zearfoss said, driver of the Brock Zearfoss Racing, Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., Meckley’s Limestone Products, Berkebile Oil Company, Klick Lewis Cars, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, X-1 Race Cars, No. 3Z sprint car. “Having the comfort of working from home will do wonders for the team, as well. The guys have been busting their butts, but now that we can work out of our own shop, we can really take the time to prepare and get things ready for the Williams Grove National Open. I’m excited to get back and see what we can do. It’s tough to think that it’s already October.”

Port Royal Speedway’s Nittany Showdown is also on the upcoming World of Outlaws agenda, set to take over the Juniata County Fairgrounds on Friday and Saturday, October 8-9. Much like Williams Grove, Zearfoss is by no means a stranger to the Port Royal “Speed Palace,” scoring a track championship in 2017.

Ryan Smith Battles Back and Wins Outlaw Summer Nationals at Outlaw Speedway, Jordan Thomas wins 2021 Patriot Sprint Tour Championship

(Dundee, NY) A make up feature from August 6 was resumed on Outlaw Fall Nationals Night on Friday, September 24.

The race ran the first ten laps on August 6 before the rain hit the track and the remainder of the night was postponed. The final 20 laps were run with Ryan Smith the race leader over Jared Zimbardi and Bobby Breen.

Smith would resume his race lead with Jared Zimbardi trailing not too far behind. There was also a battle on going between fifth place running Davie Franek and 12th place runner, Jordan Thomas. Franek needed to finish at least five positions ahead of Thomas in order to secure his second career championship.

On the lap 15 restart, Zimbardi would dive down to the bottom and race side by side for the lead into the third corner. Zimbardi would slide in front of Smith off of turn four and take the race lead on lap 16. Franek would be battling with both Bobby Breen and Paulie Colagiovanni.

Another caution would come out at lap 23 with Zimbardi having an excellent restart and pulling away from Smith. Meanwhile, Colagiovanni was beginning to fall back as far as 8th where Jordan Thomas happened to be.

Thomas would make a similar move that Zimbardi would take for the race lead and get by Colagiovanni. On lap 27, Colagiovanni shredded his right rear tire that pull another caution with three laps remaining. Three laps remained and where Franek was running fourth and Thomas was running eighth and the championship belonged to Thomas.

On the restart, Smith had one last shot to get by Zimbardi and he did by getting just underneath the 35 machine. This pushed Zimbardi up a groove where Zimbardi lost a touch of momentum exiting the corner. When the checkered flag flew, the race was won by Pennsylvania’s Ryan Smith which was his first career PST A Main.

Zimbardi would settle for second over Bobby Breen completing the podium. Franek would finish fourth and finishing eighth was Jordan Thomas. Thomas’s eighth place run was good enough to win the championship by a slim margin of four points. This was the second generation driver first career series championship after running with the tour for the last five seasons.

The Patriots were set to run a brand new show but an unexpected incident with the tracks generator stopped just as the A Main was about to go green. After discussing with NYSEG & Code Enforcement, the track had no choice but to cancel for the night. The Outlaw Fall Nationals will now be held October 22 which is a part of Dutch Hoag weekend.

The next PST race will now be Tuesday, October 5 at Utica Rome for the Cole Cup which will pay $5,000 to the winner. Stick to PST Media for more information.

Donny Schatz A-Main Finish (Start): 3rd (3rd)

2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Fourth | 9176 points (236 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 27, 2021) - Although ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz, was unable to attain his fourth and fifth victories of the 2021 Outlaws campaign, the Fargo, North Dakota-native did accomplish some consistency, concluding stops at Eldora Speedway and Lernerville Speedway with top-five outcomes and highlighting each of his recent starts with a third-place finish in Lernerville’s Commonwealth Clash on September 25.

By way of dash result, Schatz started the Commonwealth Clash 30-lapper in the exact same position as he finished, kicking off the program with the fourth-fastest qualifying time, followed by a heat race victory.

“That’s about as fast as I can ever remember going around this place,” Schatz said of Lernerville Speedway on Saturday night. “We were decent on the bottom, but then it just got so quick around the top. We keep improving little by little, though.”

One night prior to his visit to Western Pennsylvania, Schatz made his presence known in Eldora Speedway’s BeFour the Crowns Showdown, capping the evening with a fourth-place score, but not before leading the first 21 circuits. Despite his attempts to outrun the competition, Hanover, Pennsylvania’s Logan Schuchart came to call, getting by Schatz in traffic on lap 22 before escaping to a $10,000 payday. Schatz would eventually fade to fourth.

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with Williams Grove Speedway’s National Open on Friday and Saturday, October 1-2. The two-day blockbuster will be headlined with a $75,000-to-win main event on Saturday; the weekend will ignite with a $10,000 preliminary.

On the hunt for lucky number seven, Donny Schatz is a six-time National Open champion at Williams Grove Speedway, scoring his most recent, also a $75,000 payday, in 2020. The victory was the richest on the 2020 World of Outlaws schedule.

Rico Abreu scores 4-Crown All Star victory; Williams Grove National Open on the horizon

Date: Friday, September 24th
Event: BeFour the Crowns Showdown
Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series
Track: Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): DNQ

Date: Saturday, September 25th
Event: 4-Crown Nationals
Series: All Star Circuit of Champions
Track: Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 1st (2nd)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (September 27, 2021) - In convincing fashion, nonetheless, St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu secured his place in sprint car racing history books yet again, doing so by scoring the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 portion of the annual 4-Crown Nationals at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.

Abreu, now a three-time All Star winner at the World’s Greatest Dirt Track, led every circuit of the 30-lap contest, forced to withstand an early run in with traffic, as well as a late surge by Sam McGhee Motorsports’ Parker Price-Miller. The 4-Crown Nationals triumph earned the West Coast invader a $6,000 payday, now a ten-time All Star winner over the course of his career.

The victory was a perfect rebound after suffering from engine trouble during the World of Outlaws’ Befour the Crowns Showdown on Friday; Abeu did not qualify for the main event.

“I’m just so thankful for our supporters this year,” Rico Abreu said, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Rowdy Energy/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/XYZ Machining/Self Made Racing/No. 24 sprint car. “We’ve been battling through some inconsistent runs. We ended up making a lot of changes to this car tonight...having to change motors last night kinda put us behind on being ready for tonight. But I have to thank all of my guys. It’s an honor to be standing in victory lane again at Eldora Speedway...this place is so special to me. The fans, too...I get to see all of these faces and spend time with you guys. I enjoy every minute that I get to race here.”

Lining up second on the A-Main grid, Abreu earned the initial jump, cruising ahead to a comfortable lead over the course of the first seven circuits. Traffic came into play by lap eight, but Abreu’s line around Eldora Speedway’s notoriously thin cushion proved to be no match for the onslaught of slower cars. The main event’s first of two cautions appeared on lap 17 ultimately snapping Abreu’s near-straightaway advantage.

When action returned, it was Buch Motorsports’ Justin Peck applying the pressure, working the bottom and center of turns three and four with the intent to gain an edge on Abreu’s Rowdy Energy No. 24. Despite his attempts, Abreu scooted away, only to be halted again by a caution on lap 25.

The ensuing restart would see Parker Price-Miller make a jump from fourth to second, simultaneously switching his focus to Abreu. The Kokomo, Indiana-native was able to show Abreu his nose on a few occasions, but suffice it to say, Eldora’s victory lane stage belonged to Abreu.

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with Williams Grove Speedway’s National Open featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series on Friday and Saturday, October 1-2. The two-day blockbuster will be headlined with a $75,000-to-win main event on Saturday; the weekend will ignite with a $10,000 preliminary.

Joel Myers Jr 11th with King of the West Series in Hanford, CA

PETERSEN MEDIA: Though no stranger to the Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA, Saturday night would mark Joel Myers Jr’s first ever laps at the speedway with a 410ci power plant under his hood. Though the end result was not what the team had hoped for, Myers Jr was pleased with how things went as the team will get back down to the track a couple more times over the course of the next month.

“Our night started out pretty well,” Joel Myers Jr said. “We timed in well, we ran a strong heat, and I got off to a good start in the feature.”

In what was his first ever King of the West start at the Central California facility, Myers Jr kicked his night off by timing the All About Fire Protection/Dirt Dudes/Amerikote backed No. 46jr machine in eighth fastest in qualifying time trials.

Finding himself on the front row of his heat race, the Sebastopol, CA driver would beat JJ Ringo in a drag race into turn one to grab the lead and never look back. Leading all eight laps, ‘Jr’ would pick up the win and earn enough points to solidify himself a spot in the Sunnyvalley Bacon Dash.

Lining up on the front row of the Dash alongside Tim Kaeding, the youngster would hang right with the veteran ace as the duo broke away from the pack. Unable to get by TK, Myers Jr would settle for second and put his mount on the front row of the 30-lap Jim Turner Memorial feature event.

With Kaeding getting the initial jump, Myers would settle into second as he worked the high side of the 3/8-mile Keller Auto Speedway. Feeling pressure from Justin Sanders, Myers would keep him at bay until a caution flag halted the race’s progress.

Falling back to third as Sanders was able to beat the 15-year-old into turn one, Myers would not back down as he quickly made his way back into second as he resumed his pursuit of Kaeding until another stoppage slowed the action.

The ensuing restart would see Myers lose several positions as he would fall all the way back to the seventh position. At the race’s halfway point, Myers Jr would misjudge his entrance into turn three and it would result in him getting over the edge of the track and spinning to a stop.

Going to the tail end of the field, ‘Jr’ would work his way back forward and narrowly miss out on finishing in the Top-10 as he took the checkered flag with an 11th place finish.

“I think we learned some things that will help us when we come back on October 8th and 9th,” Myers said. “It was only our third night with this engine, and we still have a little tweaking to do, but all in all it was a solid night for us in the scheme of things.”

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.

ON TAP: Myers Jr and company will now turn their attention to Chico, CA this Friday and Saturday for the annual Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals.

Justin Sanders Third with KWS Aboard Works Limited No. 57

PETERSEN MEDIA: After a couple of weeks out of the seat, Justin Sanders returned to action on Saturday night at Keller Auto Speedway where he would pick up a third-place finish aboard the Works Limited No. 57 machine.

“After a couple of weeks off from racing, it felt good to get back in the car,” Justin Sanders said. “I felt a little rusty early in the night, but luckily Paul Silva and the guys gave me a great car to help me out, and we turned in a pretty solid night.”

With 20-cars checked in as the series begins its home stretch for the 2021 campaign, Sanders would stop the clocks with the fastest lap of the night in ARP qualifying time trials.

Taking the green from the fourth starting position in his heat race, the Aromas, CA driver would gain valuable event points as he powered his way to a second-place finish and secured a spot in the all-important Dash.

“I felt like I was off in qualifying, but the car was really good and actually carried me,” Sanders said. “Our heat race was crucial, as getting in the Dash each night is so important.”

Lining up sixth in the Dash, Sanders would improve his feature event starting position by one row as he worked his way to a fourth-place finish.

When the race got underway, Sanders would work into the third position as he chased after Joel Myers Jr, and early leader Tim Kaeding. Able to get by Myers on an early restart to take over the second position, Sanders would slip back to third on another restart as Myers was able to return the favor.

Working his way back into second, a late caution would create one final restart, and this restart would see Sanders slip back to fourth. Getting back on the podium in the closing laps, Sanders would chase after second running TK but would settle for third when the checkered flag was displayed to the field.

“I really have to thank everyone involved on this Works Limited team for all of their hard work,” Sanders added. “We have had a good run together, and it has been a fun few weeks.”

Justin and his team would like to thank North County Plastering, Alkaline88, Andy’s Construction, Roadside 24hr Service, Wicked Cushion, Roger’s Diner, Factory Kahne, BG Labels and Tee’s, Walker Performance Filtration, Dixon and Son Tires, Ernie’s Service Center, East Lake Village, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., DMI, Keizer Wheels, Wings Unlimited, Ti64 Titanium, AIS Heating and Sheet Metal, Fred Lint and Family, JonSan Racing, Sandblast Service, G&N Construction, Steitz Towing, Durden Construction, Ernie’s Service Center, and Steve Duppman Racing for their continued support in 2021.

ON TAP: Sanders is set to reunite with Dale Miller Motorsports this weekend in Chico, CA for the annual Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals on Friday and Saturday night.

Williamson Posts Second-Place Showings at 34 Raceway and East Moline Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - EAST MOLINE, Ill. (Sept. 27, 2021) - Garet Williamson recorded a pair of runner-up results last weekend during a Sprint Invaders doubleheader.

The two second-place outings give the Bryant Paver Motorsports driver four podiums and six top 10s in his seven races this month.

Williamson finished where he started - second - in a heat race on Saturday at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa. He then gained a pair of positions in the dash to place fifth. Williamson lined up on the outside of the front row in the A Main.

"We had the lead going into turn one and the yellow came out," he said. "On the restart the polesitter slid me into turns one and two. Terry McCarl knew it was coming and rolled the bottom to get by both of us. A couple of laps later I got to second."

Williamson reeled in McCarl midway through the race before a caution hampered his attempt at taking the lead.

"We were side by side in turn four in the middle of the race and a caution came out again," he said. "I think we had a car to win, but it just didn't play out in our favor."

Williamson's second-place result was his 10th top five of the season.

The weekend wrapped up on Sunday at East Moline Speedway, where Williamson advanced from third to second in both a heat race and the main event.

"It's nice to run that good, but at the same time we want to get wins," he said. "I think we had a better chance at winning than the previous night. We ran second to J.J. Hickle most of the night. We had a caution with about 15 laps to go. I slid him going into turn one and got him. Paul Nienhiser hit the bottom and got by both of us. We ran him down later in the race and just ran out of time."

This weekend features the Short Track Nationals with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour on Friday and Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.

"I think we can be a contender," Williamson said. "We are good there and we're running on some confidence. There's no reason we shouldn't be in the top five."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 25 - 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa - Heat race: 2 (2); Dash: 5 (7); Feature: 2 (2).

Dover Wraps Up Impressive Season at Huset's Speedway With Hard Charger Award

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 27, 2021) - Jack Dover exceeded his expectations during his first season of running a 410ci winged sprint car regularly since 2007.

Despite a rough opener to Championship Weekend, Dover capped the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association doubleheader at Huset's Speedway with a charge to a fifth-place finish on Sunday to secure fourth place in the championship standings.

"I was really pleased," he said. "Going into the season if I would have known we would finish in the top five in the standings and win a feature I'd say that was a great year. We simply wanted to get better each week and be competitive."

Dover and the Chris and Rick Bowers owned No. 81 sprint car began last weekend on Saturday by qualifying sixth quickest in their group. A heat race win locked the team into the feature redraw and Dover pulled the No. 7 to start the race on the inside of the fourth row.

"On Saturday we had a good start to the night," he said. "We qualified decent and we won our heat. Then we broke in the feature when we were running seventh. I felt we were a top-five car. I was getting comfortable in the car and ready to make some moves and the rear end broke. When that happened it ruined our gears we normally run. I feel that's what hurt us in qualifying on Sunday because we didn't have that set of gears."

The DNF on Saturday carried over into the Huset's Speedway season finale on Sunday when Dover qualified 17th quickest overall. He then advanced from sixth to fifth place in a heat race to garner the 14 th starting spot in the A Main.

"In the heat race I felt our car was really soft on the right rear," he said. "Come to find out we had a bar go bad. We switched that for the feature and we moved forward. It was working great on the bottom in the beginning. At the end we were up top and it was working pretty good. I didn't want to end the year with a wrecked car so I didn't push the issue too hard with (Justin) Henderson and (Mark) Dobmeier ahead of us."

Dover placed fifth and earned the Hard Charger Award, which had a $1,000 bonus courtesy of Cressman Sanitation, for passing the most cars in the main event.

"That definitely helps and I want to thank Cressman Sanitation," he said. "It was a pretty nice reward. It's cool to get rewarded when you drive your butt off and it helped the weekend out after the rough finish on Saturday."

Next up is a two-day event at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., this Friday and Saturday. Dover has three feature victories at the track this season and heads into the weekend second in the championship standings by only two points.

"The weekend has decent money and if we can win both nights we'd wrap the championship up," he said. "Our goal is to go out and sweep the weekend."

Sept. 25 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 6; Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 23 (7).

Sept. 26 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 17; Heat race: 5 (6); Feature: 5 (14).

Gravel Leads Big Game Motorsports to 10th World of Outlaws Win of Season

Inside Line Promotions - SARVER, Pa. (Sept. 27, 2021) - Big Game Motorsports and driver David Gravel reached the double-digits wins mark during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition this season thanks to a victory last Saturday during the Commonwealth Clash at Lernerville Speedway.

In fact, the team swept the night - setting quick time in qualifying before winning a heat race, the dash and the main event - for the second time this season. The triumph was the 13th of the season overall and 10 th of the year with the World of Outlaws.

"It's really cool," Gravel said. "I think last year I won nine races and one year at CJB I won nine races. When you're one win away you're super motivated. Ten is a hard number to attain. To do it in the first year with this team feels really good. We've won races a lot of different ways this year. It's one of those things where you appreciate every win and it's motivating to get that next one."

Although Gravel was victorious every time he hit the track, it wasn't until two thirds of the way through the 35-lap main event that he took the lead.

"I didn't get the greatest jump on the start and Wayne (Johnson) protected," he said. "It took the air off my car. I was riding in second and felt I could pass Wayne. I was trying to bide my time. Brad (Sweet) had a really good car as well and he was going off what I was doing. He was able to make a move to get by me and then pass Wayne. I thought that'd lower my chances to win the race. I was able to get to second. I thought Brad had a good pace. He caught some lapped cars and I was catching him. When the caution came out I tried to nail the restart as best as I could. He protected and I had a big run in turns one and two."

As Sweet dropped to the bottom groove on the restart of Lap 23, Gravel railed the top side in turns one and two. His momentum propelled him down the backstretch and he dove to the bottom entering turn three. Gravel then slid up in front of Sweet to take the lead and he led the remainder of the race.

"He came down the track quite a bit and I probably surprised him I was there that much and got that low," Gravel said. "It all worked out and was what I had to do to win the race. I knew I had to get up on the wheel."

The team also competed on Friday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the BeFour the Crowns Showdown. Gravel was efficient at the track as he set quick time during qualifying before winning a heat race to advance into the dash. Unfortunately, he pulled the highest number - eight - to line up last in the dash.

"Drawing the eight is never good, but I'd rather draw an eight at Eldora than some other tracks we race at," he said. "I felt we had a pretty good car."

Gravel picked up a pair of positions to finish sixth, which lined him up on the outside of the third row for the A Main.

"We weren't great at the beginning of the feature," he said. "We rode around for a bit. I put my wing all the way back and had to figure out what worked for me. Once we got the wing back we were racing with three other cars and went from sixth or seventh to third in a lap or two. At the end of the race I felt we were the best car in turns three and four and maybe not as good in turns one and two, but if things went our way maybe we had a shot to win the race."

Gravel produced a third-place result, which was his 40th top five of the season.

Next up for the team is the Champion Racing Oil National Open this Friday and Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. Gravel is a two-time winner of the prestigious event.

"We haven't won at Williams Grove this year so I'm motivated to get that done," he said. "We've had some issues at the big paying races. I'm motivated to try to get this big money this weekend. After the weekend we just had we have good confidence going in and we've had good speed at Williams Grove. We'll focus on putting ourselves in a good position and then hopefully taking advantage."

Brian Brown Captures First Career Feature Win at Williams Grove Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - SELINSGROVE, Pa. (Sept. 27, 2021) - Brian Brown earned his first career feature victory at the famed Williams Grove Speedway last Friday.

It kicked off a successful weekend that also showcased a third-place run during the Jim Nace Memorial National Open on Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway. That marked his fifth top-five finish during 10 races in Pennsylvania this month.

Sept. 24 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 3 (3); Feature: 1 (3).

"I was able to get by Devon (Borden) for second and kept pace with Brent (Marks) the first half of the feature," Brown said. "We got into traffic and he had an issue so we took over the lead. We were cruising along there and I felt like we were getting through traffic decent. We had an issue with a lapped car and that allowed Devon to get by us. The lapped car we had trouble with gave Devon trouble and I was able to get back by and win. Devon is a real up and comer and he made us work for it. It doesn't matter if you win by 20 seconds or half a second. A win is a win and our first at Williams Grove means a lot. They give you a handmade checkered flag. Having that in our shop the rest of lives is pretty special.

"Growing up as a kid there's three or four tracks you consider tracks with the most history. Knoxville, we've won there. Eldora, we've been very close with multiple seconds. I feel we've been good at times at Williams Grove, but not close to winning. To be able to get a win there is special. You always hope you will win there, but you never know. We put a lot of effort into trying to make our car better as the night goes on. Traditionally we qualify well there and do well in the heat, but I leave that place a lot of the times mad and frustrated because I can't figure it out in the feature. One win doesn't mean you figured it out, but you're closer to getting the feeling you need.

"Danny, Nate, my dad and Ben, who helps us in Pennsylvania, did a great job and it was a good night overall. It gives us confidence heading into the National Open. We're in the right mindset going into the one of the premier events in our sport."

Sept. 25 - Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa. - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 3 (4); Feature: 3 (2).

"It started off with a little bad luck as we had an issue hot lapping where we weren't able to hot lap," Brown said. "We had to go into qualifying blind and we were able to be second quick. We started fourth in the heat and ran third. We were pretty tight in the heat and I gave Danny some bad information and we over-changed our car and got it too free for the feature. I knew from when we pushed off on Lap 1 I was probably going to be in trouble. The changes we made, even with the break at halfway, you couldn't really undo them.

"We led the first nine laps and then I got to lapped cars. I got through some good and a couple of them didn't know where they were going to go and I guessed wrong. At 150 miles per hour that let (Danny) Dietrich by. We hung with him and we made changes at the halfway break, but we weren't any better. Sometimes you just get beat by two better drivers and I got beat by two better drivers on Saturday and we ran third."

UP NEXT - Friday and Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., for the Champion Racing Oil National Open with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series

"It's been a really good Pennsylvania trip so far," Brown said. "We're looking forward to capping it off with one of our premier events."

Henderson and Sandvig Cap Championship Season at Huset's Speedway With Win

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 27, 2021) - Justin Henderson finished a dominating season at Huset's Speedway in style last weekend as he picked up a victory and a third-place result during the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association doubleheader.

The win was his fifth of the season at the dirt track and the podium finish on Sunday locked up the 2021 Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig championship for the Mike Sandvig Racing No. 7 team.

"We only got one win and I really wanted two, but I guess that would be greedy," Henderson said. "It was a long weekend, but a rewarding weekend and I'm really proud of the accomplishment."

Henderson held a 28-point advantage in the championship standings entering the weekend and he kicked off Saturday evening by timing in second quickest in qualifying with a lap of 11.081 seconds. He then advanced one position in a heat race to finish third. Henderson garnered the pole position in the feature courtesy of a fortunate redraw.

Henderson was the dominant car as he led all 25 laps of the main evnet to score the $4,000 victory. In a race that featured five total cautions, the final one with two laps remaining proved to be the most beneficial as it provided Henderson with the clean air he needed to pull away as he was struggling in traffic with the race winding down.

"We came up on a bee's nest of lapped cars and they were just slicing and dicing everywhere and I had nowhere to go," he said. "I heard second coming behind me and I got that late yellow and it really saved us. Clean air means so much in these cars and it gave us the room to really just take off and win."

Sunday's finale started off with a bit of excitement as Henderson arrived to the track only minutes before taking his qualifying lap after flying in from Minnesota, where he attended his sister's wedding earlier in the day.

He proceeded to lay down a lap of 11.469 seconds in qualifying, which was good enough for 13th quickest out of 23 drivers. Henderson then advanced three positions in a heat race to place second.

"It was a really long day, but it was worth it to be able to do both the wedding and the race," he said. "I managed to get myself into a redraw position there in the heat race and that really just made me feel better about the whole night. I knew what was at stake and to be able to take care of business there and create an opportunity was great."

Henderson took the green flag from the outside of the front row and he withstood a tricky track to come home third. The top-five finish was his 12 th of the season in 18 starts at Huset's Speedway.

"Come feature-time I don't know that we were any worse than the leaders, but I just never felt like I could really get up there and challenge," he said. "We raced pretty hard and clean there for second and ended up with a podium finish and in one piece. That's all you can ask for and it really finishes our year at Huset's where we want to be and that's up front."

Following a disappointing finale a few weekends prior at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, that saw Henderson finish third in track standings, the title at Huset's Speedway helped ease that sting. More importantly, it allowed Henderson to fulfill a promise to Sandvig to bring him his first track championship as an owner after multiple years of trying.

"We should have won two championships this year, but to know we've reached the level we always dreamed of doing as a team is pretty inspiring," Henderson said. "Mike gives me everything I need to succeed and to be able to repay that favor with a championship means a ton. I feel like we're a top program and this really stamps how far we've come as a team and the future looks bright."

This marks the end of the season for Henderson behind the wheel of the Sandvig Racing machine baring any late changes. However, Henderson is headed to Pennsylvania for the next two weekends to compete with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series in the Indy Race Parts No. 71. He'll tackle the $75,000-to-win National Open at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., this Friday and Saturday as well as the Nittany Showdown at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa., on Oct. 8-9.

"As fast as we've been together all season in Mike's car, I'm kind of sad to see our season over," he said. "But I've got a great opportunity to kind of parlay that success into an opportunity with Bernie and Indy Race Parts and I'm really looking forward to it. Bernie's cars always have speed and that tells me that if I do my part as a driver, we'll have a shot to win each night out."

OUTLAW RETURN: CJB To Rejoin 'Greatest Show on Dirt,' in 2022
Spencer Bayston tapped to fill seat; McMahan returns for Fremont

CARLISLE, PA. - September 27, 2021 - After an eventful 2021, CJB Motorsports is already setting their sights on 2022.

The team is proud to announce that Indiana native Spencer Bayston will take the wheel of the #5 machine for the new year with Signing Day Sports and J.R.C. Transportation joining the effort as partners. The team will also return to full time status with the World of Outlaws, NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series for the new year.

"We felt like this was the right move to get our program back to where it needs to be," explained crew chief Barry Jackson. "Racing night in and night out with the Outlaws requires the highest level of focus and attention to detail. It's not small undertaking. In talking with our team and partners, we felt like this was what was needed to restore our team to a winning, championship caliber organization. We believe that Spencer Bayston is one of the best up and coming drivers in the sport. He doesn't have as much winged sprint car experience as some but he has won All Star and Outlaw races. We're excited to see how he can grow and learn while being on the tour. In many ways, we feel like he is a driver on the cusp of great things.... much like David Gravel was when he came to race for us."

Bayston, a 23 year old hot shoe from Lebanon, Ind., brings a diverse background to the CJB team having competed in USAC, POWRi, the All Stars and more.

"Really thrilled to join Chad, Barry and the entire team at CJB," Bayston said. "Being on the Outlaw tour is a dream that pretty much every dirt racer has. These are some of the best race car drivers in the world. To be able to compete nightly with them is a huge learning experience and a chance to help the CJB team return to championship form. Also thrilled to be working with Barry Jackson. His resume speaks for itself in this sport. Happy to have Signing Day Sports and J.R.C. Transportation with me in this endeavor as well."

The RE Pierson Constructions, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, Ecynbro Trucking, C&S Lawn and Landscape, Marchant Cattle Co. and High Performance Lubricants #5 will be in action with Bayston this coming weekend at Williams Grove Speedway near Mechanicsburg, Pa. for the annual National Open. Bayston will also take the driving duties over at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway in mid-October.

Veteran driver Paul McMahan will return for the All Star Circuit of Champions finale at Fremont (Ohio) Speedway on October 8th and 9th.

"We certainly feel great about this combination for 2022," team owner Chad Clemens said. "We were thrown a number of curve balls in 2021 and that hurt our performance a bit. Getting back on a set schedule and having that focus is something we all agree is needed to get us back to where we were...... which was consistently winning races and contending for championships. I want to thank Paul McMahan for stepping up the way he did this year and am very glad we can have him race one more time for us this year. I also want to thank Ian Madsen for his help over the last month. 2022 will be an exciting year and we're lucky that we will get a head start on it."

A full slate of partners will be announced at a later date.

Open Call for 2022 Champion Racing Oil Sponsorship Submissions

(Clinton, MO / 09.27.21) Champion Oil, a PLZ Aeroscience Company and a recognized leader in racing and specialty lubricants, has started the process of reviewing 2022 driver and team submissions for “Factory Product Sponsorships, Elite Racing Status, and Champion Distributor Sponsorships” in addition to a racing contingency program for regional and national racers in North America. https://www.championbrands.com/racer-contingency

“As the current racing season is winding down, it’s not too early to look ahead for next season”, stated Karl Dedolph, Director of Champion Racing and Performance Products. “Champion is looking to sponsor a variety of racers and race teams in Dirt-Track, Drag Racing, Road-Racing, Asphalt, Off-Road, Rock Crawling, Drifting, Diesel Drag Racing, Truck or Tractor Pull, Micro-Sprint, Autocross, Karting, etc. “

“Our review process, which ends December 15th, of this year, looks at numerous criteria such as: previous wins, top-5s, top-10s, championships, current series, number of events in 2021, plans for 2022, social media influence, media coverage, etc. No specific category carries more weight than the other. We want to participate in as many different types of racing series that make sense, so we look at the overall submission and value to promoting Champion products.”

“Our top-tier factory sponsorship program includes product and marketing support. The “Elite” series provides an exclusive purchasing contact, contingency pay-outs, and monitoring of on-going race results for future sponsorship consideration. And, the third program is for our MWD Distributors to sponsor their house team or a customer’s team with our support,” added Dedolph.

Submissions for 2022 Racing Sponsorships can be sent to racer@championbrands.com with the following information: name, email, phone, series, results in 2021, and active social media platforms.

Champion Racing Motor Oils and competition Diesel Engine Oils are built specifically to meet the lubrication demands of race motors and engines, especially those, in some cases, using flat tappet and roller cams operating at high RPMs and that require high-pressure valve springs.

To meet these demands, Champion utilizes its premium ZDDP anti-wear protection package, which contains a unique balance of chemistry that includes high levels of zinc and phosphorus.

STYRES SELECTED FOR CANADIAN MOTORSPORTS HALL OF FAME INDUCTION

By Tommy Goudge

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (September 25, 2021) – The Canadian Motorsports Hall of Fame announced 16 new inductees on Wednesday; included in the class is Glenn Styres, owner of Ohsweken Speedway and multi-time Sprint Car champion.

Styres is one of ten individuals who will be inducted in the Competitors/Motorsport Builders/Team Members/Significant Contributors category, and there is no doubt that he fits the bill in several ways.

Styres and his family opened the Ohsweken Speedway in 1996. The track - a real-life “field of dreams” built right next to Glenn’s house - has grown from humble beginnings to become one of Canada’s premier motorsports facilities. Ohsweken’s Friday Night Excitement racing series draws a loyal fanbase and 120 entrants to Six Nations of the Grand River each week, and the track has brought some of the biggest names in auto racing to Southern Ontario. The track’s signature event is the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals, one of the largest oval track events in Canada.

As a Sprint Car driver, “The Ohsweken Flyer” has 50 A-Main wins and ten championships split between the Southern Ontario Sprints tour and Ohsweken’s weekly racing series. One of Styres’ biggest victories as a driver came in 2012 when he won the Ronald Laney Memorial “King of the 360’s” event at Florida’s East Bay Raceway. Styres has also piled up wins as a car owner and, more importantly, fostered the careers of many young drivers.

The CMHF Induction Gala is scheduled to take place in February 2022 during the Canadian International Auto Show (CIAS). Additional details regarding the new inductees and the induction gala will be announced in the near future. Please visit www.cmhf.ca for more information.

Fans and racers can look forward to several blockbuster events at Ohsweken in 2022, including the dirt track debut of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series. Stay tuned to www.ohswekenspeedway.com over the coming months for announcements regarding Ohsweken Speedway’s 25th season.

About Ohsweken Speedway: Founded in 1996, Ohsweken Speedway is a motorsports complex owned by the Styres family, and located in the village of Ohsweken, Ontario, Canada. Ohsweken’s weekly Friday night racing program runs from May to September each year, featuring 360 Sprint Cars, Crate Sprint Cars, Thunder Stocks, and Mini Stocks. The season finishes each year with the annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals. Ohsweken Speedway also hosts weekly Micro Sprint racing on Thursday nights.

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ SEPT. 24, 2021 . . . The Indoor Auto Racing Series Fueled By VP Racing Fuels will return to Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on Friday and Saturday January 28th and 29th in 2022.

Racing at the annual NAPA Know How Weekend will again include triple 20 qualifiers for the headline TQ (Three Quarter) Midgets on Friday night followed by the 40 lap Gambler’s Classic on Saturday. The wild and crazy Slingshots and darty Champ Karts will make up the tripleheader programs. A closed to the public practice night will again be held on Thursday evening January 27.

Tickets for the Atlantic City Indoor races will go on sale Thursday, October 14th. Tickets will be available in a range of different 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.

Those who had purchased 2020 tickets through AARN will be notified by mail when they can obtain those same seats prior to the October 14 general sale offering.

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.

After Covid cancelations last year, the Indoor Auto Racing Series is ready to roar back into action in 2022 with three race dates currently confirmed.

TQ Midget race cars will headline all the programs with high speed excitement competing on speedways set up on the concrete floors of the arenas. The Slingshots and Champ Karts will make up all three of the tripleheader programs.

Right after the first of the year the PPL Center in Allentown, PA will host the return of the series sponsored by Ironton Internet & Telephone on Friday and Saturday, January 7-8, 2022.

An on sale date for the Allentown race tickets will be announced in the coming weeks.

The 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.”

In 2020, Erick Rudolph and Ryan Flores were the TQ Midget feature winners inside PPL Center. Andy Jankowiak won the 2020 Gambler’s Classic in Boardwalk Hall with Doug Stearly (Champ Karts) and Scott Neary (Slingshots) winning their class features.

The 2020 Indoor Auto Racing Series Fueled by VP Race Fuels championship series season also ended prematurely when the climactic March races inside the New York State Fairgrounds Exposition Center were cancelled at the very start of the pandemic after the indoor speedway had been erected by officials. Jankowiak was crowned the champion.

The Cure Insurance Arena East Coast Indoor Dirt Nationals held in Trenton, NJ, has not yet been scheduled for 2022.

TRENT WILLIAMS TAKES ON THE USAC/CRA SPRINT CARS AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY SATURDAY NIGHT

(Hesperia, CA, September 22, 2021) Hesperia, California’s Trent Williams will continue his 2021 gypsy style sprint car season this Saturday night when the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series visits Southern California’s Perris Auto Speedway for the “13th Annual Glenn Howard Memorial.” In his first eight races in 2021, Williams has run under the competition banner of five different sanctioning bodies.

A Cal State Fullerton graduate with a degree in marketing, Williams comes into Saturday’s race after recording an impressive third-place finish in the Central Arizona Sprint Car Series in Casa Grande on September 5th. It was his third top five finish in his last four races. It could have been four top five finishes in four races, but he was gathered up in someone else’s mess while lapping cars the night before.

While he has been running near the front in his past four races, Williams hopes to improve on his two previous 2021 performances in the USAC/CRA Series at Perris. His best finish in the series came on April 24th when he finished 11th, but the next time he appeared at the famous Riverside County half mile clay oval on May 22nd, he finished in the 22nd position. On the bright side, he did sandwich a victory at an open comp. show at the Barona Speedway between the two Perris races.

Fans can meet the fan friendly driver on the front straightaway at intermission on Saturday during the on track autograph and candy giveaway session. After the final race, Williams will be available in the pits to again talk with fans, sign autographs and have kids sit in his racecar.

Williams will stay busy in the cockpit after Saturday’s race. One week later, he will journey south to the mile Barona Speedway to shoot for his second win at the track this year.

Last Sunday afternoon, Williams was one of Dave Stall’s guests on “The Racer Radio Show” out of San Diego. The conversation was on the young driver’s career and this week’s race at Perris Auto Speedway. A replay of the show is available at the following link http://www.perrisautospeedway.com/radio21/RACERRADIO210919.mp3.

For fans who want to see Saturday’s race in person, the Perris Auto Speedway spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. and the first race will start at 7:00. There will be plenty of tickets available for everyone at the track on Saturday. For those who would rather order advance tickets online, the link to use is https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7

Williams would like to thank the following marketing partners for making it possible to run his Maxim Chassis/Shaver Engines #52V in the 2021 season. Victory Boys Performance, Motul, NGK Spark Plugs and Sorrento Homes. If you or your business would like to be a part of the Cal State Fullerton marketing graduate’s racing team, please call (760) 780-8782 or mailto:trent.williams.racing@gmail.com .

BUSY OPEN WHEEL DRIVER JEFF DYER HEADED TO PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY ON SATURDAY

(Yucca Valley, CA, September 23, 2021) After contesting three main events in 24 hours last weekend in Bakersfield, Jeff Dyer will return to action this Saturday night, September 25th, in the “13th Annual Glenn Howard Memorial” at Perris Auto Speedway. It will be his fifth 2021 start in the toughest 410 traditional sprint car series west of the Mississippi.

The last time the Yucca Valley, California driver raced in the USAC/CRA Series was last month on the same Perris half mile clay oval he will be competing on this Saturday. At that event, Dyer debuted a deep blue #39 car that combined his ITI Chassis with Cal Smith’s RC Performance 410 engine. The new combination proved to be much more comfortable than the old car and reacts totally different in the corners. Dyer looked a lot more confident in the ride and steered to a 12th place finish in the “California Racer’s Hall of Fame Night” 30-lap main event. It equaled his best USAC/CRA finish of the 2021 campaign. As he becomes more acclimated to the car, a top 10 finish is on the horizon.

Dyer’s busy weekend in Bakersfield started out last Saturday at the Bakersfield Speedway for round #3 of the “Civil War Series” matching the California Lightning Sprint Car Series drivers versus those from Northern California’s Bay Cities Racing Association. Things went well all night long for the veteran driver beginning in qualifying when he timed in fifth fastest in the 24-car field. He followed that up with a fourth-place finish in his heat race. That put him on the outside of the second row for the 25-lap main event. From there, Dyer advanced two spots forward and equaled his previous season best finish in June at Ventura when he also came home in second.

Twenty-four hours later he journeyed across town to The Dirt Track At Kern County Raceway Park where he not only raced with the California Lightning Sprint Cars, but also with the USAC West Coast Series Sprints. In the CLS portion of the show, he qualified two positions better than Saturday when he timed in third with a lap of 15.200. On a track that was extremely hard to pass on and with a car that wanted to bike, Dyer ended up with a disappointing seventh place finish in the main.

On the USAC West Coast 360 side of the program, Dyer drove the Tim Bell #29. Unfortunately, the car was plagued by brake issues all night long and he placed ninth in the main event.

Dyer would like to thank the entire Bell family and crew for Sunday night’s opportunity. He also wants to thank Schaeffer Oil, Industrial Finishes, American Fabrication, Hydraulic Controls, and Simpson Racing Products for sponsoring the car that supports the Chung Miracle Network via its racing endeavors.

Dyer will be available to meet all the fans at Perris during Saturdays on track autograph and kids candy giveaway session at intermission and in the pits after the final race.

For fans headed to Perris Auto Speedway for Saturday night’s race, spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. and the first race will be at 7:00. Tickets will be available at the track on Saturday. For those who wish, tickets can be purchased online at https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7.

Perris Auto Speedway is located on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds at 18700 Lake Perris Drive in Perris (92571). The track website is http://www.perrisautospeedway.com/ and the phone number is (951)940-0134.

Throughout the 2021 campaign, Dyer will be racing in memory of his grandfather, Glenn Sels.

Nienhiser Heats Up as Season Winds Down

PETERSEN MEDIA: After taking a couple weeks off from racing, Chapin, IL driver Paul Nienhiser is heating up as the season draws to a close. Picking up a fourth-place finish two weeks ago with Scott Bonar, Nienhiser was back in victory lane on Friday night at his home track, Jacksonville Speedway, and eyes a repeat victory tomorrow night.

“After taking some time off it feels great to get this No. 9x car back in victory lane at Jacksonville Speedway where it belongs,” Paul Nienhiser said. “We haven’t ran the family car a ton in 2021, but when we have it has been a struggle and on Friday night we hit on some things and we are excited to try again this coming Friday.”

Nienhiser showed no signs of rust at his home track on Friday night as he would line the CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil/Mason Sound/Innovative Design backed machine up in the second row of his heat race.

Able to work on the two distinctive lines that were offered up early in the night, Nienhiser would get up into second, where he would finish, and put himself in a good spot for the upcoming feature event.

Sitting second in race points, Nienhiser would roll off the starting grid from the front row for a feature event that would have a tough time getting underway. With two starts being negated for wrecks, Nienhiser would get damage to his left rear on the second failed attempt.

With his left rear going down, Nienhiser opted to keep his track position and roll the dice on the damaged tire. When the green flag was displayed, Nienhiser would jump out to the early lead as he began pounding the boards at the racy mile speedway.

Amidst a dominant performance, traffic would get Nienhiser some issues. Attempting to make a move in traffic, Nienhiser would back his pass attempt down, causing him to lose a ton of moment, and relinquish the lead to Jake Neuman.

Going from hunted to hunter, Nienhiser would return the favor on Neuman in traffic as he took the lead back late in the race and cruised on to his fifth win of the season.

“It was a fun night, and I was really happy with how things felt,” Nienhiser said. “We don’t have a ton of races left this year, but I am hoping we can end the season on a really strong note.”

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil, Mason Sound, Innovative Design, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Wessler Bros. Agency, Bob Hawks Auto Body, Fierce Herbicide, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Kaeding Performance, Smith Titanium Products, Vortex Wings, Signature Signs and Design, and Team Simpson for their continued support.

2021 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-41, Wins-5, Top 5’s-9, Top 10’s-15

ON TAP: Nienhiser will be back in his car on Friday night at Jacksonville Speedway, and will then return to Scott Bonar’s No. 50 mount on Saturday night during the Fall Haul with the Sprint Invaders, and on Sunday night at East Moline Raceway.

Goldesberry Grabs Another Top 10

Springfield, IL (September 23, 2021)- Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team was back in action last weekend at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, WI taking on the IRA. There was a good field of cars on hand for the final night of racing in 2021 at Wilmot.

Goldesberry went out late for qualifying and timed in 16th quick. The qualifying result would make the night difficult for the Rockstar Energy Drink team. Goldesberry would line up inside third row of the heat race and was able to pass one car to finish fourth. The Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim would have to start 15th in the feature. After getting a good start, the Rockstar Energy Drink #65 would start to make its way forward. After a couple cautions, Goldesberry was able to get up eighth and earn another Top 10.

“We were able to move forward in the feature but the track blew off more than we expected. It was heavy all night. Unfortunately, we didn’t qualify very good and we made our night more difficult than it needed to be.” said Goldesberry. “We will look to finish off the IRA season strong this weekend.”

The final two races of the 2021 IRA season will take place this weekend. Friday night the action will be at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, WI. The season will conclude Saturday night at Sheboygan County Fair Park’s Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, WI

SEASON STATS-
33 races, 1 win, 9 top 5’s, 16 top 10’s

Brody Roa

(Cypress, CA, September 22, 2021) This Saturday night, Brody Roa will be seeking his third Perris Auto Speedway signature main event win of the season in the “13th Annual Glenn Howard Memorial.” Already this year, the veteran driver has won the annual “Salute To Indy” and the “California Racer’s Hall of Fame Night” events on the famous Riverside County half mile clay oval.

If Roa, 30, does emerge triumphant on Saturday, it would not only be his third USAC/CRA and Perris Auto Speedway win of the year, but it would be his fifth total victory in 20 starts. In addition to the aforementioned wins at Perris, he scored a win in the USAC West Coast Sprint Car Series at the Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare and in an open 360 race on The Dirt Track at the Kern County Raceway Park in Bakersfield.

Saturday’s big event at Perris will be Roa’s first time in competition since contesting three races in Northern California over Labor Day weekend. In the 72-hours of racing in the upper half of the “Golden State,” he had sixth and third place finishes at the two night “Louie Vermeil Classic” at the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico. He rounded out that quick sojourn to the north with another third-place finish at the Petaluma Speedway.

Going into the three races in NorCal, “The Pride of Garden Grove” had closed to within 24-points of the point lead. However, the two third place finishes, and the sixth saw him lose some ground in the USAC/CRA Championship point standings. Heading into this Saturday’s race, he is 44-points behind the leader. Hopefully he can turn that tide back the other way beginning on Saturday. Starting in May, he has two wins, a second and a third at Perris. That makes his average finishing position at the track 1.75 in those four outings. That is by far the best at the track in that time period.

While racing is a very significant part of Roa’s life, there are more important things. For example, last week the veteran driver and his wife Tailor celebrated the first birthday of their daughter Addison Leanne with family and friends. They then snuck in a trip to Disneyland before heading back to the track this Saturday.

Fans can meet Roa and take photos with him during Saturdays on track autograph and candy giveaway session at intermission. They can also meet him in the pits after the race. He will have his good-looking shirts available in both places.

Fans who would like to purchase Brody Roa merchandise, but who cannot attend a race, can check out the online store that is packed with great items including t-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, beanies, baby onesies, plush blankets, jigsaw puzzles, stickers, notebooks, tote bags, wine tumblers, mugs, bandana pet collars and more.

Spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and the first race will take the green flag at 7:00. There will be plenty of tickets for everyone at the ticket window.

CRSA Racing to “The Golden Throne” for $1,000 Saturday at Penn Can

Press Release by: Steven Ovens – September 23rd, 2021

(SODUS, NY) – Just two events remain on the 2021 Super Gen Products with Champion Power Equipment CRSA Sprints Series. Round number fifteen of sixteen lands on a big weekend of racing at Gary Folk Sr.’s Penn Can Speedway “King of the Can” weekend.

Paying $1,000-to-win, the “Future Stars of Sprint Cars” will tackle ‘The Can’ for the third time in 2021. The first trip this season kicked off the 2021 campaign with local hero Kyle Pierce taking his first career CRSA Series win. The Spencer, NY driver successfully kicked off a new partnership with Midstate Basement Authorities, who also support the CRSA Sprints as a marketing partner.

The second trip of the season to Penn Can in July produced another winner to add to the 2021 win column as Altamont, NY pilot and point leader Jeff Trombley knocked his first of the season down. It had been an ultra-consistent season for the Trombley and Alexson combination, but Penn Can provided their first checkered flag of the season.

Following a crazy turn of events at Fonda Speedway this past Friday night, the race for the runner-up spot in points has heated up into a frenzy. Josh Flint currently runs in the second spot some 171 points behind Trombley- nearly a perfect night of Heat/A-Main points behind. But after several engine issues and a crash Friday night causing damage to Flint’s chassis, it appears that the season may be done for the No. 41J per conversations at Fonda.

The driver who benefited the greatest from Fonda Speedway was Kyle Pierce, who now just rests 175 points behind Trombley in third place. Pierce logged a sixth place finish in Friday’s 20-lap A-Main and gained points on both Flint and Trevor Years who didn’t finish.

The aforementioned Years has been nearly as consistent as Pierce in 2021- only lacking an additional Top 5 and 2 wins. Years now rests two points behind Pierce and six points behind Flint and has been turning up the wick before Friday’s Lap 1 crash. Watch for Years to take a step forward in his comfort level with Penn Can Speedway Saturday night in his quest for the second spot in the 2021 standings.

Not out of the thick of it yet either is Dana Wagner who sits 187 back of Trombley and 16 points back of Flint for second. If Wagner had any luck at all in 2021, he very well could be giving Trombley a run for his money for the 2021 title. So to be less than 20 points back of second place with two races remaining isn’t bad for Wagner who hasn’t missed a tour race all season.

Saturday night the pit gates open at 4:00PM. The CRSA Sprints driver’s meeting will take place at the MEM Trailer at 5:00PM. Heat in Engines 5:15PM with hot laps to follow. Race time is slated for 6:00PM.

The CRSA 305 Sprints are powered by Super Gen Products with their Champion Power Equipment located in Newark, NY. Associate sponsors for the 2021 CRSA 305 Sprints include Midstate Basement Authorities, CNY Farm Supply, the Maguire Family of Dealerships, Powdertech Powdercoating, Hoosier Racing Tires, Insinger Performance with their Stinger Race Fuel and is owned and operated by Mike Emhof Motorsports.

EDDIE TAFOYA JR. TACKLES GLENN HOWARD MEMORIAL SATURDAY AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY

(Chino Hills, CA, September 23, 2021) After three weeks off, Chino Hills, California sprint car driver Eddie Tafoya Jr. will be back in the cockpit this Saturday night for the “Glenn Howard Memorial” at Perris Auto Speedway. The race will be followed up by a trip to Arizona on the first Saturday night in October.

After a tough three race stint over Labor Day weekend in Northern California, Tafoya, and his Specialty Fasteners crew plan on faring better on Saturday. In the three races on the unfamiliar Northern California tracks, the #51T had uncharacteristic 11th, 16th, and 20th place finishes. The team is determined to reverse those results at its first race in autumn.

While many drivers opted to stay home during the cavernous breaks in the 2021 USAC/CRA schedule, Tafoya decided otherwise. He wanted to keep busy and he wanted to keep honing his skills. Thus, he made three separate trips to Indiana where he got in an extra 12 races against the best drivers in the nation.

This Saturday will be Tafoya’s 24th open wheel race in 2021. Dating back to mid-January’s Chili Bowl Midget Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the affable driver has done a lot of racing out of state. In fact, he has more starts in Indiana (12) than he does in his native California (9). Fourteen of his 23 races have come on different tracks.

Tafoya’s treks to the Midwest the past two years have paid dividends for him. Especially on his home track, Perris Auto Speedway. In four starts on the Riverside County half-mile clay oval in 2021, he has shined. Thus far, he has two top five finishes and three top 10s. Included is his first ever USAC/CRA podium finish on July 17th when he placed third. The only time he came home out of the top 10 at The PAS this year was on Memorial Day weekend when he dropped out of the race while in second. His best finish away from the Riverside County oval came at Santa Maria when he placed sixth on July 3rd.

For rising star Tafoya and his competitors in the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series, the 2021 schedule is finally going to get busy. Beginning Saturday, there are eight races in the next seven weeks. That is in heavy contrast to the first six months of the 2021 schedule which has only seen 13 events to date.

On Saturday, fans can meet Tafoya at the on track autograph and candy giveaway session during intermission. They can also visit him after the races in the pits. He will have his 2021 shirts available at both places.

Fans can follow Tafoya on Instagram @eddietafoya51 and can use the same contact to purchase shirts via mail.

For those who wish to attend Saturday’s race, the gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with racing at 7:00. There will be plenty of tickets available for everyone at the ticket window. The race will not sell out. For those who wish, advance tickets are available at https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7.

Perris Auto Speedway is located on the freeway close Lake Perris Fairgrounds in Riverside County. The address is 18700 Lake Perris Drive in Perris (92571). The track website is at http://www.perrisautospeedway.com/ and the office phone is (951) 940-0134.

Tafoya and his team would like to thank the following sponsors for being a part of the 2021 racing campaign. Specialty Fasteners, BR Performance, DRC Chassis, Ryder Racing Engines, Benic Enterprises, Simpson, and Bell. If you or your company would like to become a part of the team in 2021, please give them a call or send an Email to the contact information at the top of this press release.

LEGENDS DAY TO HONOR THE STARS OF NEW ENGLAND MIDGET RACING

LOUDON, NH: The popular annual Legends Day event will be held on November 7 at the North East Motor Sports Museum (922 Rt 106, Loudon, NH 03307). Headlining the afternoon will be the stars and VIPs of midget racing in New England. As always, Legends Day will be a fun time and will include a free lunch. This year’s event’s co-emcees intimately know New England midget racing and the people who win midget races. Pete Falconi has been the Northeastern Midget Association announcer for many years. Dick Monahan has been deeply involved in NEMA as well, enough to co-write the history of midget racing in New England for the museums book “History of Auto Racing in New England". Both men appreciate the value of fun. Living honorees includes a list of champion drivers. Russ Stoehr won six NEMA championships between 1990 and 2010, Drew Fornoro won nine NEMA championships, more than any other driver; Bobby Seymour won the 1987 driver championship and has fielded midgets for others to drive to wins for nearly his entire life. Rollie Lindblad has built the broadest array of winning race cars of anyone in New England. His construction includes winning drag race cars, supermodifieds, super-late model cars and midgets. His Badger midgets dominated NEMA competition for many years. Drew Fornoro leads the NEMA all time win list with 85 victories and is followed by Dave Humphrey who had 73 trips to victory lane. Bobby Seymour will represent his family which includes brother Mike, a NEMA champion driver, and his father “Boston” Louie whose cars won the USAC Silver Crown Championship. Over a ten-year period, Boston towed race cars more than a million miles from New England to USAC races all over America. Bobby was with him most of the time. There will be a dramatic banner unveiling in the museum’s ceiling, adding to the banners depicting the stars of the three prior Legends Day celebrations. Deceased who will be honored in a special banner include some of New England’s all-time greatest midget drivers: Johnny Thomson, Bob Blair, Bill Eldridge, Joe Sostillio, Dave Humphrey and Joe Ciski. A free buffet beginning at 11:30 is included. The program will begin at 1pm and will be followed by the museum’s Annual Meeting which is open to all paid members. Become a member at Legends Day and join the Annual Meeting where you can have a say in how the museum is run. Seating is limited to 100 tickets so a sellout is likely, be sure to get a seat. You can purchase tickets on our website by clicking here. Tickets are $30 for museum members, $35 for non-members. You may also call 603-783-0183 to purchase tickets or send your payment to the North East Motor Sports Museum, 922 Rt 106, Loudon, NH 03307.

PACE RUSH LATE MODEL FLYNN'S TIRE/BORN2RUN LUBRICANTS TOURING SERIES & RUSH SPRINTS TO COMPETE FRIDAY & SATURDAY AT GENESEE FOR "TOPLESS NATIONALS"; TRAVELING MFG NIGHT PRESENTED BY MSD ON SATURDAY FOR LM
By Mike Leone

(September 22, 2021) -


(Batavia, NY)...The Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC will take part in the fourth annual "Topless Nationals" at Genesee Speedway this weekend. The Flynn's Tire/Born2Run Lubricants Late Model Touring Series will race for $2,000 to-win on both Friday and Saturday night (September 24-25), while the RUSH Sprint Cars will battle for $1,000 to-win each night in Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series specials. Hot laps/qualifying will get underway at 6 p.m. on Friday night and 5 p.m. on Saturday night.

This year will be the fourth for "Topless Nationals", which debuted in 2017; however, didn't take place last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be the first time contested as Tour events for the Late Models; Friday night will be a Platinum Event meaning Tour members can utilize the race to replace a missed Marquee Event or throw out their worst Marquee finish. The Late Models will run topless each night; however, approved roof plates will be permitted. Roof, roof supports, and window side panels must be removed, all other body rules remain in effect.

On Saturday, the annual "Traveling Manufacturers Night" presented by MSD Performance will take place following the drivers meeting. Competing drivers that finished in the top 15 in track points (not RUSH Track Pack points) at Genesee, Fulton Speedway, and Woodhull Raceway will be eligible to win one of the product package giveaways valued at a minimum of $445 up to the grand prize of a Lincoln Electric Power MIG 140C Multi-Purpose Welder and utility cart valued at $1,175. In the event there are more than 25 eligible drivers, additional packages valued at $400 will be added. Here is a link to the complete giveaway list: https://rushlatemodels.com/Manufacturers%20Night%20Traveling%20Prize%20List%202021.pdf. Of course all legal racers can compete in the race event.

The fastest Late Model qualifier each night will receive $100, while the heat race winners will pick up $25 both courtesy of FK Rod Ends. The feature winner each night will receive a 5-Gallon Race Jug from Precise. Ontime Body & Graphic's "Spoiler Alert" will award a $150 spoiler kit to the 14th place finisher on Friday and the 15th place finisher on Saturday (note: if a driver has already won a spoiler this season, spoiler will be awarded to the next position).

One Late Model driver will be randomly selected at the drivers meeting each night for a $100 Sunoco gift card thanks to the "Fill'er up with Sunoco Bucks" program presented by Sunoco and Zarin Truck & Auto. Also, Performance Bodies will award a $100 gift card to the first non-qualifier each night as part of the "Nosed Out" program.

Virginia's Kyle Hardy leads the Tour back to Genesee for second and third time of 2021. Hardy, who has six wins and an impressive 12 podium finishes in 13 races, has a 71-point lead on the surging Joe Martin in the $12,000 championship race. After starting the season off with three finishes outside the top 10 in the first six races, Martin has come on strong with seven straight top six finishes including his first Tour win in seven years at the last event on September 11 at Sharon. Three-time champion and three-time 2021 winner, Jeremy Wonderling, has slipped back to third, but will have an opportunity to get back in the hunt by throwing out his worst finish of 20th on Friday night.

Michael Duritsky, Jr. is fourth with three top five finishes. After failing to finish in the top 10 in any of the first 11 Tour races, Bud Watson has an eighth and a ninth in the last two Tour races at Sharon to move into fifth in points. Ryan Frazee, J.J. Mazur, John Waters, Kyle Lukon, and Cory Sines complete the top 10.

The Pace Performance National Weekly Series and Futures Cup Championships will end this weekend. Hardy has just a one-point lead on Wonderling in the $5,000 to-win Weekly Series, while last year's "Wheelman" Champion, Kassidy Kamicker, leads the $500 to-win Futures Cup. Note: the Track Pack and Tour points will continue until season's end.

Following the Genesee races this weekend will be another back-to-back weekend at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway next Friday and Saturday (October 1-2) for the "Bill Hendren Memorial" presented by FK Rod Ends in conjunction with Pro Fabrication. Each night will pay $3,000 to-win. Friday night will also include the $1,200 to-win "One to Remember" Non-Winners race presented by Hendren Racing Engines & CrateInsider.com, while Saturday night will have a $500 to-win Non-Qualifier race.

The RUSH Sprint Cars will compete at Genesee's "Topless Nationals" for the third time; however, the ante has been upped as each night will pay $1,000 to-win, $175 to-start. Chad Ruhlman has won all three Genesee events contested as he swept both $800 shows in 2018 and then won in 2019, but Mother Nature washed out night two in 2019.

Thanks to his season leading ninth victory of 2021 last Sunday at Tri-City Raceway Park, Gale Ruth, Jr. has extended his points lead to four over Ruhlman, who is a two-time $5,000 Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series Champion. Fresh off his first career Sprint Car win on Saturday at Pittsburgh, Blaze Myers is solidly in third over two-time winner Rod George and John Mollick.

"This will be a great weekend for our Late Model and Sprint Car teams," stated RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "Both will get to race a complete show each night. We're grateful that Jim Johnson has allowed us to have Tour shows each night, and Saturday is the perfect time to host the Traveling Manufacturers Night as none of the New York tracks will be in action. It's also been great for our Sprint Cars to be included each year as part of the Topless Nationals, while offering them their richest events of the season."

WESTERN MIDGET RACING EXPANDING IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA FOR 2022

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (September 23, 2021) – Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction will expand its footprint in Northern California, announcing agreements with Petaluma Speedway, Antioch Speedway, and Marysville Raceway for a full season of Saturday night events. These Saturday venues will be in addition to the Friday races held at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif. WMR will also continue to compete at Ventura Raceway and Adobe Mountain Speedway in Glendale, Ariz. with points races this fall and dates on the 2022 calendar planned.

Specific race dates will be announced later in the year as the individual track schedules are developed. The stock production Midget series makes its Antioch Speedway debut this Saturday.

“I am extremely pleased to be able to make this announcement,” WMR owner Mike McCluney said. “John Prentice at Ocean Speedway gave us the opportunity to develop WMR in Northern California and we think we’re now ready to expand our schedule to include more Saturday races in the region. Petaluma Speedway, Antioch Speedway, and Marysville Raceway are high quality venues with excellent management, located in market areas that work well for our expansion,” he continued. “We are very excited about the partnerships with these tracks and the further expansion of west coast midget racing.”

Long time midget supporter and Petaluma Speedway Promoter Rick Faeth is pleased to be partnering for a third season in 2022 with the rapidly growing WMR. "I feel that what Mike McCluney has done with the Western Midget Racing Series is finally addressing the decades old issue of the escalation of National midget motor costs. By utilizing a stock block automotive engine package that provides durability and enough performance, I believe this is the future of regional midget racing and I will continue to provide my support to the series," Faeth said.

North East Motor Sports Museum

LEGENDS DAY TO HONOR THE STARS OF NEW ENGLAND MIDGET RACING

LOUDON, NH: The popular annual Legends Day event will be held on November 7 at the North East Motor Sports Museum (922 Rt 106, Loudon, NH 03307). Headlining the afternoon will be the stars and VIPs of midget racing in New England. As always, Legends Day will be a fun time and will include a free lunch. This year’s event’s co-emcees intimately know New England midget racing and the people who win midget races. Pete Falconi has been the Northeastern Midget Association announcer for many years. Dick Monahan has been deeply involved in NEMA as well, enough to co-write the history of midget racing in New England for the museums book “History of Auto Racing in New England". Both men appreciate the value of fun. Living honorees includes a list of champion drivers. Russ Stoehr won six NEMA championships between 1990 and 2010, Drew Fornoro won nine NEMA championships, more than any other driver; Bobby Seymour won the 1987 driver championship and has fielded midgets for others to drive to wins for nearly his entire life. Rollie Lindblad has built the broadest array of winning race cars of anyone in New England. His construction includes winning drag race cars, supermodifieds, super-late model cars and midgets. His Badger midgets dominated NEMA competition for many years. Drew Fornoro leads the NEMA all time win list with 85 victories and is followed by Dave Humphrey who had 73 trips to victory lane. Bobby Seymour will represent his family which includes brother Mike, a NEMA champion driver, and his father “Boston” Louie whose cars won the USAC Silver Crown Championship. Over a ten-year period, Boston towed race cars more than a million miles from New England to USAC races all over America. Bobby was with him most of the time. There will be a dramatic banner unveiling in the museum’s ceiling, adding to the banners depicting the stars of the three prior Legends Day celebrations. Deceased who will be honored in a special banner include some of New England’s all-time greatest midget drivers: Johnny Thomson, Bob Blair, Bill Eldridge, Joe Sostillio, Dave Humphrey and Joe Ciski. A free buffet beginning at 11:30 is included. The program will begin at 1pm and will be followed by the museum’s Annual Meeting which is open to all paid members. Become a member at Legends Day and join the Annual Meeting where you can have a say in how the museum is run. Seating is limited to 100 tickets so a sellout is likely, be sure to get a seat.

Ramey Caps Hockett/McMillin Memorial With Solid Outing

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 22, 2021) - Gunner Ramey's third appearance at the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial hosted by Lucas Oil Speedway was a performance the Terry Doogs Racing team can build on.

A lack of track position hurt Ramey during Thursday's opening night of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event as he finished where he started - eighth - in his heat race before advancing from 10th to seventh in a qualifier. Ramey missed a transfer into the A Main by two positions after maneuvering from eighth to fourth place in a B Main.

"We started really deep in the heat race and struggled with getting track position on Thursday," he said. "By the end of the B Feature we had a really good car and with one more lap I think we could have transferred to the A Feature."

Friday night started better as Ramey picked up two positions to post a fourth-place finish in a heat race before he garnered a runner-up result in a qualifier. That locked him directly into the main event and he closed the night with a 16th-place showing.

"Friday was a really fast, unbelievably slick and tough track all night," he said. "We struggled a little bit in the feature, but overall I think we made some positive gains to set us up well going into Saturday."

Ramey placed fifth in his Last Chance Qualifier to kick off the finale on Saturday. He then ended fourth in a B Main, which was two positions away from a transfer. However, he was awarded a provisional as the ASCS Warrior Region points leader to start the A Main 25th.

Ramey and the team originally thought they might start and park since he would only be awarded B Main points for using the provisional. However, the 40-lap feature saw a number of yellow flags fly early to keep the field bunched up, allowing Ramey to pick off a few positions on restarts.

Later, an open red gave the team an opportunity to make some adjustments on the car, a pivotal moment in the race for the No. 21 team.

"We really started to pass some cars after the red flag," he said. "The car just came to life with the adjustments we made and I was having fun out there passing on a real racy track."

Ramey made his way to 15th, an improvement of 10 positions from where he started. It marked the fourth-most positions gained by any driver.

"It felt great to have a strong final night there with a fast car," he said. "We had a lot of people come up to watch and it was great to give them a good show."

Up next will be Ramey's debut at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, this Saturday night with the Sprint Invaders.

"I've never been there before so it'll be cool to go to a new track for us," he said. "I think we'll have good speed there and I think we can get a top five out of it."

Hill Enjoys Career-Best Hockett/McMillin Memorial Performance

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 22, 2021) - Alex Hill produced her career-best Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial outing at Lucas Oil Speedway last weekend.

The Hill's Racing Team driver qualified for Saturday night's A Main among of field of nearly 70 competitors for the first time during one of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour's marquee events.

"We had a really good weekend, especially after taking a break from racing for about a month," she said. "We made the A Main two nights out of three in a big field of cars. We made Saturday night's A Main for the first time at that race. Daryl, Pete, Ronnie and Nick worked hard and gave me a fast car each night."

Hill's weekend got off to a solid start on Thursday when she won her heat race and finished second in her qualifier.

"We had a really fast car in our heat and qualifier," she said. "I was able to get the lead right away in the heat race and win. I got a good start in the qualifier and finished second after starting fifth.

"We weren't quite as fast in the feature. The track was really slick and we missed the setup a little bit. We started sixth and finished 13 th. It was still a good night, overall."

Hill was unable to overcome a poor draw that made for a challenging night on Friday.

"We started seventh in the heat race and weren't able to move forward," she said. "We were able to pass cars in the qualifier and B Main, but we just started too far back to make the transfer."

Hill maneuvered from ninth to sixth in a qualifier and from sixth to fifth in a B Main.

Although she didn't quite lock into a Saturday night A Main starting spot following the first two nights, Hill lined up third in her Last Chance Qualifier on Saturday. That race took the top-two finishers to the A Main and Hill made the most of it.

"We had a really good start and were able to stick the bottom in turns one and two, which put us in second right away," she said. "We were able to hold that spot the rest of the race and qualify for the A Main.

"We started 15th in the A Main. Our car was just a little too tight and I faded toward the end. I pulled in after I was lapped. There's no sense in being out there in a big race if you've been lapped and you're not real fast."

Hill, who was credited with a 22nd-place result, will close out her racing season at the ASCS National Tour's season finale hosted by Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, Oct. 15-16.

SawBlade.com Backed Bogucki Hustles to Podium During Hockett/McMillin Memorial Finale

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 22, 2021) - Scott Bogucki drove to his best outing at the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial since 2018 last Saturday.

The SawBlade.com sponsored driver posted a third-place finish out of 60-plus drivers on Saturday during the event finale of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour tripleheader at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Bogucki was strong throughout the event, which began on Thursday. He advanced from sixth to third place in a heat race and from fourth to win a qualifier. That lined Bogucki up on the outside of the second row for the main event.

"Considering how slick that place gets, it gets insanely slick with no cushion, I was happy with our performance," he said. "That's something I've been working on and we've gotten better. To run second, we were definitely pleased with the night."

Bogucki's runner-up result was his 14th top five of the season.

He continued to march forward on Friday, rallying from fifth to second in a heat race and from sixth to fifth in a qualifier. However, a DNF in the main event relegated him to a 26th-place result.

"We were good, but there was an error on my behalf," he said. "I hit an infield tire and broke the steering arm. We were running probably seventh or eighth and it was early in the race. I was taking it easy running around the bottom trying not to get in trouble up top and I got myself in trouble."

Despite the crash Bogucki earned enough combined points during the two preliminary nights to rank sixth overall. That started him on the outside of the third row in the A Main on Saturday.

"We did the lock-in hot laps and were on the tight side," he said. "We just watched the track and made some calls that could have been risky compared to how free we had the car the rest of the weekend. The way the track was I'm glad we moved that way."

Bogucki moved forward a trio of positions and his third-place result was his best during the event finale since a second-place showing three years ago.

"Obviously I want to win, but with 70 cars and that caliber of cars it's pretty good," he said.

Bogucki plans on taking this weekend off before resuming competition with the ASCS National Tour Oct. 1-2 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., during the Short Track Nationals.

Hagar Sweeps Hockett/McMillin Memorial Preliminary Nights at Lucas Oil Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 22, 2021) - Derek Hagar enjoyed a special weekend during the 11th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial.

Hagar swept the preliminary action, winning the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour shows last Thursday and Friday, before placing 14th during the finale on Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway. The two triumphs pushed his career win total with the series to five.

"With everything happening with the Wilson Family, I told them at Jacob's visitation I'd do everything in my power to sweep the weekend," he said. "I wanted to, but the odds of doing that are kinda tough. We got the first win out of the way on Thursday and I felt pretty good. Friday we started closer to the front and got the lead pretty early. We got the second win and I thought maybe we've got this. We had some issues Saturday with the setup and a right rear tire going low that hindered us from getting a sweep."

The event, which featured 60-plus competitors, began for Hagar with a charge from 10th to fifth in a heat race on Thursday. He then won a qualifier after starting third, which ranked him eighth in overall points and garnered the eighth starting position in the A Main.

"We didn't pass as many cars in the heat race as I'd like so that put me starting third in a qualifier," he said. "The car in front of us jumped the start so that moved us to the pole. We won that so that put us eighth in the feature lineup. We started picking them off pretty easily and by Lap 10 I think we had the lead. We had a nearly seven-second lead at the checkered flag. The car would go anywhere we wanted. It was a special win."

Hagar's victory was his fifth of the season and second career with the ASCS National Tour during the marquee event.

Momentum continued on Friday as Hagar advanced from third to second place in a heat race and from fourth to win a qualifier. This time he was third in overall points and lined up on the inside of the second row in the main event.

"We got the lead in the heat race early and then (Dylan) Westbrook got by me toward the end so we ran second," he said. "We started second row on the outside of the qualifier. When we went green the front two cars split and I went right through the middle of them. That put us third in points for the feature. We got up to second right on the start and were making ground on Westbrook. I saw his crew telling him to go to the bottom on a restart. I went up through the middle and used momentum around the outside of him to take the lead (on Lap 5). I tried to get by traffic as quick as I could. We had a caution with 10 laps to go and I had three lapped cars between me and second. That gave me some breathing room. Then we got another caution with two laps to go. When you have Westbrook right behind you on a restart it makes you sweat some bullets. Fortunately, we were able to pull away to get our second win in a row there."

Hagar's triumph made him the high-points driver and earned the pole position for Saturday's $10,000-to-win A Main.

"We were too tight," he said. "I wanted it to be a little snug so the car would be there at the end. The race track just never went away. Then we had a tire go down and it made it so much tighter. I couldn't run the top like I needed to. I just cruised on the bottom and tried not to tear up the car."

Hagar settled for a 14th-place result.

Parker Price-Miller Complete World of Outlaws California Swing with Tarlton Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- After Tarlton Motorsports Crew Chief, Paul Baines, and Parker Price-Miller compete in August’s Ironman 55 for Roth Motorsports, Baines and Price-Miller reunited at Baines’ regular home for the recently completed World of Outlaws California swing.

“First and foremost, I want to thank Tom and Tommy Tarlton, as well as Paul Baines for the opportunity to drive their race car and compete in California again,” Parker Price-Miller said. “It wasn’t the trip we wanted, but it was a positive in my book as I got to meet some great people and see some tracks that I haven’t been able to compete at in a couple of years.”

During the Gold Cup Race of Champions in Chico, CA, the opening night saw PPM slowly acclimate to the Tarlton Motorsports package. Failing to make the feature event on Friday, PPM and company would come back and better themselves for Saturday’s finale.

“The Tarlton’s program is different than what the Roth team uses, and is different from what I am used to, so we had to essentially re-figure each other out in a short period of time,” Price-Miller said. “I still really like working with Paul Baines a lot, and I think we gel together nicely.”

During Saturday’s Gold Cup Race of Champions finale, PPM was able to race his way into the 40-lap feature event before finishing 17th in the ‘A’.

Fast-forward to Saturday night, and it brought on the third and final night of the swing as regional fires cancelled Placerville’s event. Checking in at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA for the 2nd Annual Tom Tarlton Classic, PPM would time in 11th fastest in time trials.

In the feature event, the Kokomo, IN driver would not be able to charge his way through the field as he had hoped but was able to cap his stint with the Tarlton team off with a 15th place finish.

“I wish we could have given the family better results, but I still had a blast and am really thankful they thought of me,” PPM said. “Everyone treated me great, and it felt like home and that makes things really enjoyable.”

Tarlton Motorsports would like to thank Tarlton and Son, Inc., EZ Haul, Executive Auto Sales, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, All Star Performance, and BG Lubricants for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 24, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 3, Top 10’s: 8.

ON TAP: Tarlton Motorsports will take this weekend off with Tarlton and Son Inc.’s partnership with Hendrick Motorsports and Kyle Larson in Las Vegas, NV.

Amantea Picks Up Pair of Top-10 Finishes in Wingless Micro Sprint Competition

Inside Line Promotions - HAMLIN, Pa. (Sept. 22, 2021) - Joey Amantea scored a pair of top-10 results last weekend behind the wheel of his family owned No. 88j wingless micro sprint car, placing seventh at Linda's Speedway on Friday and sixth at Hamlin Speedway on Saturday.

"It was nice to get out and have some fun and some success," he said. "With the season really winding down we are trying to make as many laps as possible and it makes it better when you can run well, too."

Amantea kicked off the weekend on Friday at Linda's Speedway in Jonestown, Pa., where he advanced three positions in a heat race to finish second. He lined up seventh for the feature and moved as high as third before an incident during a slide job attempt sent him to the rear of the field. He rallied back from 22nd to finish seventh.

"It was a really good day and we had a lot of speed from the moment we unloaded," he said. "I was challenging for second and I guess I hit a rut trying a slider and kind of spun out. We had to go to the rear and we marched right back forward, but I only have myself to blame. I was just going for it."

Amantea originally planned to attend the race at Hamlin Speedway on Saturday as a spectator in support of his sister, but he made the late decision to compete as well. He suffered a DNF in a heat race after starting third, which lined him up 11th for the A Main. Amantea nursed a damaged race car that struggled with handling woes to a sixth-place finish at the completion of the feature. The top-10 run was the 19th of the season for Amantea.

"We didn't plan on running and looking back I don't know if it was the best decision we have made," he said. "We were all right car-wise, but we ended up beating up a lot of equipment out there and while we got a top 10, it probably hurt us more in the long run."

Next up for Amantea will be a wingless micro sprint event at Linda's Speedway on Friday before he returns to Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars competition at Bridgeport Speedway in Bridgeport, N.J., on Saturday.

Amantea currently sits eighth in the championship standings - only trailing fifth by 90 markers - with only five events remaining on the 2021 series schedule.

"Honestly, we are trying to go win on Saturday as we've really been good there when we've ran there," he said. "I think we've finished fifth and third there already, so we might as well find Victory Lane as we close out the season."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 17 - Linda's Speedway in Jonestown, Pa. - Heat race: 2 (5); Feature: 7 (6).

Sept. 18 - Hamlin Speedway in Hamlin, Pa. - Heat race: 6 (3); Feature: 6 (11).

SEASON STATS -

45 races, 1 win, 7 top fives, 19 top 10s, 28 top 15s, 30 top 20s

Mallett Perseveres for Top 10 During Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 22, 2021) - Jordon Mallett highlighted the 11th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial held at Lucas Oil Speedway last weekend with a top-10 result and a Hard Charger Award.

Although he wasn't able to qualify for the A Main during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event opener on Thursday, Mallett rebounded with finishes of 10th on Friday and 18th on Saturday during the crown jewel event that showcased more than 60 drivers.

"Honestly it was kind of a weekend I want to forget about," he said. "I look forward to this show every year and this one might have been the toughest weekend we have had as a team all season."

Mallett kicked off the trio of races on Thursday with a sixth-place run in a heat race and an eighth-place finish in a qualifier. He followed that up with a rally from eighth to third in a B Main to end one spot shy of making the main event.

"We felt really good in hot laps and then we were just really off in the heat race," he said. "We searched around and I thought we fixed it for the qualifier, but we were not any better. We ended up finding we had a bad torsion bar when looking around and we were actually really good in the B Main, but we just caught things too late to be able to capitalize on the speed we actually had."

Friday night saw Mallett finish sixth in a heat race and then pass four cars in a qualifier to place fourth. He started on the pole of a B Main and finished second to secure the 22nd starting position in the feature. Mallett persevered as he was able to pass a dozen cars to come home with a 10th-place outing, which earned the Hard Charger Award for gaining the most positions.

"It almost seemed like the same story on a different night and we just couldn't capitalize in the heat or qualifier," he said. "We ended up getting in through the B Main and showed we had one of the best cars there. I just wish we had a better starting spot and could have maybe contended for a podium instead of having to come from the back."

The event wrapped up on Saturday with Mallett finishing third in a Last Chance Qualifier and second in a B Main to transfer into the rear of the main event. He gained a trio of positions to end 18th.

"After Thursday night's issues we knew we were buried pretty deep and that killed us as we really expected to lock right into the show and obviously that didn't happen," he said. "We got ourselves into the feature, but we just had the car way too snug to really make up any ground and it was a disappointing end to the weekend."

While the result was short of his expectations on Saturday night, Mallett found solace in the fact that he qualified for the feature with nearly 70 drivers vying for a spot into the coveted A Main.

"We can say we're one of the best 24 cars or so there, but it's still a tough pill to swallow when you expect to be a top-five car and are not," he said. " Getting in the show is definitely an accomplishment, but I like top fives and top 10s and we didn't do that. We'll take our medicine, move on and be better the next time out."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 16 - Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. - Heat race: 6 (7); Qualifier: 8 (8); B Main: 3 (8).

Sept. 17 - Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. - Heat race: 6 (5); Qualifier: 4 (8); B Main: 2 (3); Feature: 10 (22).

Sept. 18 - Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. - Last Chance Qualifier: 3 (3); B Main: 2 (1); Feature: 18 (21).

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

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

GLENNN HOWARD MEMORIAL FOR USAC/CRA SPRINT CARS SATURDAY AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY

(Perris, CA, September 21, 2021) The Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and The PAS Senior Sprint Cars return to “The Southern California Home of Major League Sprint Car Racing,” Perris Auto Speedway, this Saturday night for the “13th Annual Glennn Howard Memorial.” Spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with racing at 7:00. Be sure to load up all the neighborhood kids and bring them to Saturday’s event. At intermission, all the drivers will bring their cars to the front straightaway for the on track autograph session. In addition, they will be passing out free candy to all the kids in attendance.

The race honors Howard, who passed away in 2007. In his decades on the Southern California racing scene, Howard was a driver, car owner, racing dad, entrepreneur, fabricator and official. Even though it has been 14-years since he passed away, his fingerprint is still on the sport in Southern California today. Through his So Cal Performance company which supplied drivers with everything they needed to compete, he virtually knew everyone in the sport. He was free with his knowledge of car setups, driving and race strategy to anyone who asked. That made him a mentor to everyone and perhaps more important, he was everyone’s friend. That is what makes this race very special to all the competitors.

It was obvious that Howard had a lifelong love affair with the sport, and he wanted it to succeed. In 1993, with the original CRA having issues, Howard and others founded another group named SCRA that fortunately kept traditional 410 sprint car racing alive in the west. He was the original President of the new group and was instrumental when the current USAC/CRA was formed a little over a decade later in 2004.

“Glenn was a great man, who did everything he could to help anyone and everyone when it came to sprint car racing,” Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian said. “If anyone ever needed advice whether it was a driver, crew chief, race official or promoter, you could always go to Glenn and get his opinion on what one should do. That made him respected by everyone to this day. The sport sorely misses him and all that he offered.”

All 12 running’s of the “Glenn Howard” have taken place on the famous Perris Auto Speedway clay surface. However, like nearly everything else, the race was canceled due to COVID in 2020. When last contested in 2019, Austin Williams won the race for the second time. Recently, the Corona, California driver won the last race in the USAC/CRA Series on September 6 at the Petaluma Speedway. He comes into Saturday night third in the USAC/CRA standings. Concord, California’s Damion Gardner leads all drivers with four “Glenn Howard” wins. The only other driver with more than one win in the event is Nic Faas, who currently has put his racing career on pause.

Another driver among the favorites for the win on Saturday is Garden Grove, California’s Brody Roa. The veteran driver has already won two prestigious races at The PAS this year - the “Salute To Indy” and “California Racer’s Hall of Fame Night” - and comes into Saturday second in the standings, 44-points behind seven-time series champion Gardner. The longtime rivalry between Roa and Gardner is legendary around the sport, and it reached the boiling point once again after the finale at the “Louie Vermeil Classic” at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico on September 6th.

“Rivalries have been a part of racing since the beginning,” Kazarian stated. “They always have been and always will be a part of the sport. In the case of Damion Gardner and Brody Roa, it is the familiar rivalry in racing when two top drivers meet. They are both very good drivers. While the personalities of the two are polar opposites, they are both extremely competitive. They each have good equipment and a tremendous will to win races and championships. A few things have happened between them over the years and every so often it boils over. Situations like this are inevitable when you have the competitive nature of sprint car racing. They both have a lot of fans that think their guy wears the white hat while the other guy wears a black hat. Rivalries keep things interesting.”

In addition to the USAC/CRA portion of the show, The PAS Senior Sprint Series will be contesting it’s next to last race of the 2021 season. El Segundo’s Tyler Hatzikian has a narrow six-point advantage over Ed Schwarz of Santa Fe Springs heading into Saturday’s race. Anaheim’s Dale Gamer is third and is followed by Greg Badgwell of Tustin and Arizona’s Richard McCormick.

Adult tickets are $30.00. For seniors 65 and over it is $25.00. Kids 6-12 get in for just $5.00 and children five and under are free. There will be plenty of tickets available at the ticket window on Saturday. We will not sellout. For fans who wish, advance tickets are available at www.tix.com

FLOWDYNAMICS DRIVERS MATT McCARTHY AND LOGAN WILLIAMS READY FOR SATURDAY’S GLENN HOWARD MEMORIAL AT PERRIS

(Ontario, CA, September 21, 2021) The Flowdynamics Racing duo of Matt McCarthy and Logan Williams is poised and ready to return to action on its home track, Perris Auto Speedway, in the “13th Annual Glenn Howard Memorial” this Saturday night. The race will be the first on the home digs for the team since August 21st.

Home cooking has done well for both young drivers in 2021 on the famous Riverside County half-mile banked clay oval. They each recorded season best sixth place finishes on the quarter century old track. Williams notched his sixth-place finish there on June 16. One month later on July 24th, McCarthy did the same. For McCarthy, it was in the middle of his streak of four straight top 10 finishes.

Coming into Saturday’s race, Riverside, California’s McCarthy, who was the series “Rookie of the Year” in 2017, has climbed up to ninth place in the 2021 championship standings. He can make another move up the point ladder with a good night on Saturday as he is only nine-points out of eighth. Teammate Williams, the 2014 series “Rookie of the Year” who calls Yorba Linda, California home, is only two positions and 40-points behind McCarthy going into Saturday’s race.

The last time they competed at The PAS on August 21st, Williams came from the back two times to finish ninth in the 30-lap main event. McCarthy ended up 20th in the same race after getting upside down on the front straight when other cars tangled in front of him leaving him no place to go.

The last time the team was on the track was at the Petaluma Speedway on September 6th. McCarthy grabbed a ninth-place finish in the main event at the Northern California track. Williams ended up 13th in the same race.

McCarthy will be on the radio this Friday with Roy Bleckert at 5:45 p.m. You can listen on your radio on KMET 1490 AM or online at https://www.kmet1490am.com/.

If you wish to see the Flowdynamics Team in action at Perris Auto Speedway this Saturday, the track is located on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds at 18700 Lake Perris Drive in Perris, California (92571). Spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with racing at 7:00. There will be plenty of tickets available for everyone at the track on Saturday night. For those who wish, advance tickets are available online at https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7. The track website is http://www.perrisautospeedway.com/ and the office phone number is (951) 940-0134.

McCarthy and Williams would like to thank the following sponsors for making the 2021 season possible. Flowdynamics Inc., JFK Design Build, Drink-Pac, Preferred Insulation, DRC Chassis, Kistler Racing and Benic Enterprises. If you or your company would like to join forces with Flowdynamics Racing, phone John McCarthy at (909) 930-5522 or Email mailto:john@flodyinc.com.

Setters Highlights Season With Championship, Four Wins and Career-Best Runs During Big Events

Inside Line Promotions - SPIRIT LAKE, Idaho (Sept. 21, 2021) - The 2021 season was mission accomplished for James Setters.

The first objective was to win another Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series championship, which Setters was able to do in the Mike Quigley owned No. 2. It marked their third straight title together.

Setters also captured four of the six series races and he finished in the runner-up position during the other two events. He was victorious during his heat race at all six series shows.

"It was nice to continue to win, especially with some new drivers running the series," he said. "Our main goal was to get the championship again and we were able to do that and win a few races along the way so we're happy."

Setters was successful in his family owned sprint car as well, capturing career-best results during Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition - a sixth-place run during the Grizzly Nationals at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont. - and ASCS Frontier Region action - a runner-up result at Gallatin Speedway.

Additionally, Setters finished in the top 10 of the Western Sprint Tour Speedweek standings following a successful five-race stint during the spectacle.

"We didn't get to run as much as we wanted to this year, but we made the most of it," he said. "It's definitely nice running against the best competition. When you run the national shows everybody is fast and you learn a lot.

"I want to thank Mike for the opportunity to drive for him as well as the sponsors who support me. I'm really looking forward to getting back to racing next year and hopefully competing for another championship and continuing to get better as a driver."

Wilson Sweeps Weekend to Earn First 410 Sprint Car Win in More Than Five Years

Inside Line Promotions - FREMONT, Ohio (Sept. 21, 2021) - Confidence has been brewing throughout the last month for Greg Wilson, who has been piecing together successful outings since teaming up with Seeling Motorsports.

If there was any doubt remaining, the Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics backed competitor burned it last weekend when he swept a pair of FAST on Dirt Winged 410 Sprint Cars shows in his home state of Ohio.

"Honestly, almost part of it doesn't seem like it happened," he said. "The thing that's been a lot different is I'm going to races with a different perspective and a drive to get to the point to compete for wins. The last month things were trending in the right direction.

"To go Friday and win, to get the monkey off your back, was big and then you're rolling into Fremont with more confidence. It's a place where Andy (Potter) has had fast race cars and I've been good. You think if you are as good as you were the night before you should have a shot. Then to pull it off from 11th was awesome. It's huge for my confidence and was cool to get my wife and girls, who are such a huge part of my career, some wins and to see those smiles on their faces was priceless."

Not only did Wilson win both features, his triumph on Friday at Moler Raceway Park in Williamsburg was his first during 410ci winged sprint car action since May 2016. Approximately 24 hours later he returned to Victory Lane at Fremont Speedway.

"From my standpoint Friday night was cool because it got the monkey off our back," he said. "It was a young guys race track. It was tiny, rough and wet. You had to run four wheels above the cushion. All the things people think I can't or wouldn't do. It was cool to get the job done and race with Cole Macedo, who is a talented and young guy coming up. Then Fremont is 40 minutes from my race shop. I'm an Ohio guy so it's always been one of the mainstays in terms of 410 tracks. I've been fortunate to have a good fanbase. Andy is from Fremont and I know how much that means to him. With all of that combined and coming from 11th, for multiple reasons it was a big shot in the arm."

Wilson opened the weekend by qualifying third quickest in his group at Moler Raceway Park. A heat race win preceded Wilson lining up on the outside of the third row in the main event.

"The cool part was we were a little better at the beginning of the race than I anticipated," he said. "We've been good from the middle of races on lately. The way the track was it wasn't something we've raced on much. We got a good start and up to fifth right away. We picked one off and were cruising in fourth. We got into traffic and got another spot. We had a restart and I got another spot. I think I was riding third and we got to traffic again. I passed Cale Conley and Cole was out a little bit, but I could see we could maneuver a little better. He was doing such a good job running where he was running and it was the line I needed to be in so you're probably going to have to do a dirty deal to pass him, which I'm not willing to do. When I got close I thought if I could show him my nose maybe that'd create an opportunity. I could tell he'd run it into turn three harder. All you can do is hope for a mistake at that point. Fortunately for us he made a bobble in turns three and four on the last lap and I made a really good lap and was able to get by for the win."

Saturday was another solid night from start to finish as Wilson timed in sixth quickest in his group. He gained two positions to place fourth in a heat race, which lined him up 11th in the main event.

"The first five laps I wasn't sure we'd be all that good," he said. "As we started going the track cleaned off a little bit and made it to where you could run multiple lanes. I kept changing my lane and bumping my wing back. Finally it started going. I got by two or three and the caution came out. We were sitting eighth or ninth. We fire off on the restart and I got three cars right away. We had another caution that got us bunched again. I got one more and then we ran quite a few laps and got another. When I saw five laps to go I got to second. Nate (Dussel) was almost a straightaway ahead of me. We were way better than I thought and the car came alive. We got to him with a lap and a half to go. We got into traffic and it was one of those deals it was better to be sitting in second. It played out perfectly. Sometimes you need some racing luck and we got a little bit. I could go through the middle and then whether you needed to cut to the bottom or go right to the cushion I could do that. I was hoping they would part and I could go right between them. The lapped car peeled to the bottom and Nate went to the cushion. I just drove right between them."

Wilson made a late-race pass for the second straight night to earn a trip into the Winner's Circle.

He rides the momentum into a pair of races at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, this weekend. Wilson will tackle the BeFour the Crowns Showdown with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Friday before running the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions portion of the Four Crown Nationals on Saturday.

"When you come off a weekend like we had you're a little more confident, but you also understand that the level of competition we're going to now and with so many things factoring into Eldora, you have work to do," he said. "We haven't been very good on the half-mile tracks yet. We're going with a better game plan. You want to go win, but right now I'd love to go make both races, run all the laps and have the ability to work on our half-mile stuff."

Amdahl Posts Top-10 Finish During Rapid Speedway Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa (Sept. 21, 2021) - Elliot Amdahl closed his 360ci sprint car season with a sixth-place finish last Saturday during the Rapid Speedway Nationals hosted by Rapid Speedway.

"I was pretty happy with a sixth-place finish," he said. "That track has been kind of tough for me. I think I was sixth there two or three times this year. That place is kind of my kryptonite."

The race was also the final points race for the Midwest Touring Sprint Series and Amdahl settled for fourth in the championship standings.

"We were hoping to finish third, but we fell just a bit short," he said. "But it was still a pretty good year for us, considering everything."

Saturday evening began on a positive note for Amdahl and car owner Steve Ziebarth before actual competition began.

"We were second quick in hot laps, which was good for us because we've been struggling to find speed there in the past," he said. "It was nice to be quick right off the bat."

Amdahl drew the pole starting position for his heat race.

"I got to racing with the guy who started on the outside of me for just a second and that allowed the guy who started fourth to get by me," he said. "The track was just one lane around the top. We stayed in second and made the feature redraw and drew the pole for the feature.

"The track slicked off a lot more in the feature than in previous races there. We knew it would be just a matter of time before the rubber settled in.

"We got a good start, but I made a mistake and Terry (McCarl) got around me. I stayed in third a while. We struggled to find forward bite early in the race because we didn't want to tighten the car too much with the rubber coming in later. I fell back to sixth and then the rubber came in. Then we were fast, but the track was one lane by then so it was too late to do much."

The sixth-place outing was Amdahl's 17th top 10 of the season.

He will wrap up the racing season in 410ci sprint car competition this Sunday at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., during the Championship Weekend with the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association.

"We haven't been able to race the 410 very much this year so I'm excited to get some more seat time," he said. "We struggled getting our motor to run last time so we're putting the car on a wheel dyno this week. We hope to go into Sunday with a full head of steam."

Kaleb Johnson Caps Season With Podium Finish at Rapid Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa (Sept. 21, 2021) - Kaleb Johnson wrapped up his racing season with a runner-up result with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series Saturday night at Rapid Speedway.

"We had a pretty good night," he said. "Maybe one of these days I'll win a race. I think we finished second four or five times this year."

Johnson began the Rapid Speedway Nationals slotted third in a solid heat race lineup.

"I think we were in the toughest heat of the night and I knew it wasn't going to be easy," he said. "I got a decent start and ran third most of the race before I was able to get by Jody Rosenboom with a lap or two left. That put us in the feature redraw."

Johnson pulled the No. 3 for his feature starting position.

"I knew it was going to be tough with Terry McCarl starting alongside," he said. "You know he's going to get a good start no matter what.

"We were able to get to second right away. Terry had a decent lead, but we were able to catch him in lapped traffic. The rubber came in around Lap 5 or Lap 6. I was able to get close to him a couple of times, but it would've been tough to pass him. He has the experience and he would've known what to do to prevent me from passing him, especially in the rubber."

Johnson's second-place showing was his eighth top five of the season.

He was also able to post a top-10 finish with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour a week ago Tuesday at Clay County Fair Speedway in Spencer, Iowa, where a poor draw got his night off to a challenging start.

"We drew the highest number so we had to start at the back of our heat race," he said. "We were able pass a couple of cars and that had us starting 11th in the feature.

"I got together with another car at the beginning of the race and it bent our frame. It was just a racing deal where both of us had nowhere to go. I didn't stop so I kept my spot on the restart. Once the race got going, we got kind of spaced out and it was tough to pass. Most of the cars were on the bottom of the track. I was able to pass one car before we had a caution for a green-white-checkered restart. I was able to get by Ryan Bickett for ninth after the restart, but I lost that on the last lap and finished 10 th."

Dover Entering Huset's Speedway Championship Weekend in Contention for Title

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 21, 2021) - Jack Dover is in position for a shot at the track championship at Huset's Speedway heading into Championship Weekend.

Dover and car owners Rick and Chris Bowers sit third in the championship standings - only 36 points out of the lead - entering a two-day Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association event this Saturday and Sunday at the oval in Brandon, S.D.

"I feel good," Dover said. "We've been really consistent all year and every time we go there we get better. I feel confident we can compete for first or second in the standings. It'd be cool to win it, but with Justin Henderson being up there and Carson McCarl second it's going to be hard. We'll just do our best and see how it plays out."

This is the first year since 2007 that Dover has raced 410ci sprint cars regularly, but that hasn't slowed him down. He scored his first career 410 win at the track during the most recent race and his seven top fives is tied for the third most in the division. Dover also has 11 top 10s - tied for the second most - and his average feature finish in weekly 410 races at Huset's Speedway is 5.46.

Dover is coming off a three-day weekend with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour as he tackled the 11th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Unfortunately, the event got off to a rough start last Thursday when a competitor ran into Dover midway through a heat race. The incident resulted in a crash that damaged his race car and Dover was sidelined for the remainder of the night.

"It broke the frame so we got the spare down," he said. "The car we pulled down is the one I ended last year with and ran the year before. I've always liked the way it reacted and felt comfortable with it. It sucks we wrecked a car, but we're back in a car I know works good."

That showed on Friday as Dover advanced from fifth to third place in a heat race and from fourth to second place in a qualifier. That ranked him sixth out of the 60-plus drivers and locked him into the sixth starting spot in the A Main.

"We fell back and went forward, then fell back and went forward," he said. "The track was really slick. I tried to tighten the car up as much as I ever had. I thought maybe we'd be too tight and we weren't tight enough. I just pulled the wing back and was trying all different sorts of lines. I finally found one that was the best and we stuck there. I was happy with our outcome."

Dover's fourth-place result was his 25th top five of the season.

The event concluded on Saturday with Dover winning a Last Chance Qualifier to transfer into the 10th starting position in the main event.

"I felt like we had a shot at being a top-five car," he said. "As soon as I got out there and did the warm-up lap, I knew right then we weren't going to be very good. I had the car too tight and then we had a shock go bad. We just kind of rode around there and tried to stay out of trouble. We did a couple of changes during a red and it helped a little, but with that shock being bad it really hurt us. I'd go into the corner and it'd jump on the right front. On that track it's something you don't want to have happen."

Dover was credited with a 16th-place finish.

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Rebound for Top 10 at Keller Auto Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - HANFORD, Calif. (Sept. 21, 2021) - David Gravel rallied from a late-race incident last Saturday to record his 53 rd top 10 during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition this season.

Gravel was in contention for a top five and potentially a podium during the Tom Tarlton Classic at Keller Auto Speedway when contact from another driver sent the Big Game Motorsports No. 2 spinning off the track in turn two.

"I slid up to pass a guy," he said. "He messed up on the cushion and tried to pass me back and drove over my right rear. It spun me around. I was definitely bummed. I was looking around a fifth-place finish. There were still quite a bit of people on the lead lap so we fell back to 16 th or 17th."

Gravel had been able to move forward all night, qualifying ninth quickest before advancing from third to second place in a heat race and from sixth to fifth place in the dash.

"I thought we qualified good for when we went out," he said. "The track kept getting faster and faster. That's part of the circumstances. To start third in the heat, we knew we had to get the job done early because of the way the track was. We were able to get a good jump and get in the dash. Drawing the No. 6 wasn't ideal, but we did what we could do. I felt okay in the dash. I felt better in the heat race though so we changed it up a little for the feature."

Gravel battled for fifth throughout the first two thirds of the main event before the contact resulted in a crash. He restarted behind the lead-lap drivers and rallied for a 10th-place result.

"We had quite a bit of damage," he said. "The right side board was crinkled up and the nose wing was pushed over. I didn't know what we'd have. We were able to pass some guys and at least salvage a decent finish. To run 10 th, we're not happy, but if that's the worst case scenario we'll take it and move on."

Gravel remains second in the World of Outlaws championship standings as the series returns east this weekend for races on Friday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the BeFour the Crowns Showdown and Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., during the Commonwealth Clash.

"I'm really looking forward to getting back to two of my favorite tracks," he said. "We're usually pretty good at Eldora and Lernerville is in my top two of tracks. I think most of the time it's pretty racy and you can run top to bottom."

Dominic Scelzi Salvages Sixth-Place Performance During World of Outlaws Show

Inside Line Promotions - HANFORD, Calif. (Sept. 21, 2021) - Dominic Scelzi earned his best finish of the season during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition last Saturday at the Tom Tarlton Classic hosted by Keller Auto Speedway.

Scelzi overcame a problem to start the night and he held on during late-race woes to score a sixth-place run, which marked his second top 10 in three starts with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt' this season.

"I'm super happy with our speed, but disappointed with how everything played out," he said. "It was frustrating having the speed we did and not being able to do what we thought we could with it."

The night began with a mechanical problem that kept Scelzi from participating in hot laps.

"When we unloaded and started up the motor wasn't running," he said. "We changed motors and had the same issue again. That's when we realized it had to be a fueling issue. We changed the tail tank, fuel pump and fuel system. We didn't get to hot lap. We got one lap in qualifying and I wasn't able to put a good lap down. We finally got it right for the heat race."

Scelzi qualified 21st quickest, but a run from seventh to fourth place in a heat race moved him up nine positions in the A Main.

"We were good in the heat and made our way right to fourth," he said. "First through fourth were nose to tail so I felt really good. That gave me confidence going into the feature.

"We worked our way to eighth right away in the feature. I got myself up to sixth and then the power steering went out on Lap 15. We had a line break and dump all the fluid out. I had to run the last 20 laps without power steering. It was extremely hard. I felt like I did fine until we had about 10 laps to go. At that point I struggled to hang on. The last couple of laps I fell back from fourth to sixth."

The sixth-place finish was Scelzi's 48th top 10 of the season.

"I honestly felt like we were a podium car," he said. "We were fast and getting by guys the first half of the feature. We drove up through the field. If we got a bad restart and someone got by us, we'd get right back by them. I'd have loved to see how we could have finished with power steering, but it didn't work out."

Scelzi plans on returning to Keller Auto Speedway this Saturday for a King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series event. He enters the race leading the championship standings.

Alex Pokorski racks top-10 MSA run
at Gravity Park Speedway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 21, 2021 – After a three-week break from competition, second-year 360 Sprint Car driver Alex Pokorski returned to the cockpit of the No. 4 Pokorski Motorsports machine to post his fourth top-10 A-main showing of the 2021 campaign in an Akright Auto Parts of Sheboygan Falls Midwest Sprint Car Association main event at Gravity Park Speedway in Chilton, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 18.

With 18 MSA 360 Sprint Cars signed in for the second event of the 2021 season on the quarter-mile Gravity Park Speedway bullring, Pokorski lined up fourth in the first 10-lap MSA heat race.

Track conditions proved to dictate the evening as the surface began taking rubber early in the event, which was held as part of the annual Chilton Fall Classic featuring competition in eight different divisions over two nights.

Pokorski held tight to the bottom of the rubber-filled track throughout the heat race and was close enough to take advantage when Tony Wondra drifted high and slipped out of the rubber on the final lap. Pokorski ducked underneath Wondra in turn three on the final circuit to claim a third-place finish.

The West Bend native earned the sixth starting spot in the 25-lap MSA A main and maintained his line along the rubber-laden low groove throughout the event and enduring three caution flags en route to a sixth-place showing in a race won by Tony Wondra.

“The track only had one fast groove due to rubber being laid down,” Pokorski said. “My approach was to get down into the groove as quickly as possible and wait for people to make mistakes in front of me. You have to conserve your tires when the track takes rubber, so it’s just about avoiding mistakes and saving tires. I’m happy to finish sixth. I felt I was faster than one or two cars in front of me, but they didn’t make mistakes.”

The Pokorski Motorsports team will close out the 2021 Midwest Sprint Car Association points season with a doubleheader weekend of action starting Friday, Sept. 24 with an MSA 360 Sprint Car event held in memory of Fuzzy Fassbender, Harry Neitzel and Rick Schmidt at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. The Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Cars and Wisconsin WingLESS Sprint Cars will also be on the card for the all-Sprint Car event.

On-track action will begin at 5:50 p.m. with qualifying and racing to follow.

The team will cap the 2021 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car and MSA points campaigns at the Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships on Saturday, Sept. 25 at The Plymouth Dir Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

The Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships will feature the final points races of the season for the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Cars, Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Cars, Midwest Sprint Car Association Sprint Cars, PDTR 360 Sprint Cars and IRA Lightning Sprints with 2021 champions crowned in all five divisions.

Westfall earns BOSS podium in Fremont visit; Gas City, Eldora ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (September 20, 2021) – Despite kicking off the weekend with a 14th-place score during USAC National Sprint Cars competition at Circle City Raceway on Friday, September 17, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports found another gear during Saturday’s visit to Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio, and ultimately capped their weekend on the podium.

Westfall, driver of Ray Marshall’s Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/Bumblebee Express/No. 33M sprint car, finished third during his visit to “The Track That Action Built,” climbing ahead seven spots after starting tenth on the main event grid. The Pleasant Hill, Ohio, open wheeler launched his evening in northwest Ohio with a third-place finish during his respective heat race.

Certainly no stranger to Fremont Speedway, Westfall is a former BOSS Series main event winner at the facility, earning his most recent win on July 13, 2019. In addition, Westfall finished fourth with the BOSS non-wingers during a Fremont start in mid-August.

Westfall has one BOSS triumph in 2021, that occurring at “Dirt’s Monster Half Mile” – Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway.

“If we would have started a little closer to the front, I think we may have had a shot,” Westfall said of his Fremont performance. “Regardless, I can’t say enough about Ray Marshall and this entire Ray Marshall Motorsports team. Ray gives us the opportunity and the equipment to be successful and I couldn’t be more grateful to be the man who gets to do the fun part.”

Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will continue their 2021 campaign with another jam-packed weekend along the Indiana/Ohio corridor, launching their slate with a Thursday night visit to Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, Indiana, on Thursday, September 25. The team will then visit the World’s Greatest Dirt Track, Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, for 4-Crown Nationals competition on Saturday, September 25.

Dietrich finds win six during BAPS visit, scores back-to-back top-tens with All Stars

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (September 20, 2021) – For the sixth time this season, and for the second time at BAPS Motor Speedway, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich is a main event winner, doing so during the annual Greg Hodnett Foundation Race on Thursday evening. September 17. The $5,000 triumph was the product of row one, losing the lead initially to Kunkletown, Pennsylvania’s Ryan Smith, then claiming the point for himself on lap 12. The victory was a second consecutive at BAPS Motor Speedway.

Dietrich, driver of Gary Kauffman’s Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, Graver’s Garage, Racer’s New & Used Parts Warehouse, No. 48 sprint car, continued his recent weekend with back-to-back starts against Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions, first participating in Williams Grove Speedway’s Jack Gunn Memorial on Friday, then Lincoln Speedway’s Dirt Classic VIII on Saturday.

The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native advanced from 13th to fifth in the $7,000-to-win Jack Gunn Memorial, then climbed from 18th to ninth in the $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic.

“We did the best we could with the hands we were given. I think we were good enough to win all three of those races, but you have to be in a better position to capitalize,” Danny Dietrich said, who owns six victories at five different facilities thus far in 2021. “I can’t say enough about this team. My guys bust their butts and I appreciate everything they do for me. I think we have a few more wins left in the tank, so we’ll do what we can to capitalize when the Outlaws come to town in a few weeks.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with another doubleheader in the Keystone State, set to visit Williams Grove Speedway and Selinsgrove Speedway on Friday and Saturday, September 24-25.

Sides Heading to Eldora Speedway and Lernerville Speedway This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - HANFORD, Calif. (Sept. 20, 2021) - Jason Sides is bound for the middle of the country to spend a couple of days at home before an upcoming weekend in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Sides has been traveling from California toward his shop in Tennessee, a journey of more than 27 hours. He will then leave in a couple of days for the nine-plus hour trip to Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, for the BeFour the Crowns Showdown on Friday prior to a race on Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., for the Commonwealth Clash.

"I'm looking forward to a couple of days at home before heading to Eldora and Lernerville," he said. "We always enjoy racing at those two tracks and are excited to head to both this weekend."

Sides wrapped up his first trip to the West Coast in two years last Saturday at Keller Auto Speedway, which hosted the Tom Tarlton Classic.

The night began on a positive note as Sides qualified third quickest and won a heat race to advance into the dash.

"Going out late was a little bit better in qualifying," he said. "The track got a little widened out and was greasy early. We had a decent run to get to the front of the heat. The track was a little narrow then and (David) Gravel showed me a nose a couple of times, but we stayed out front.

"We tightened up a little for the dash because the track was getting slick. I thought we had a good run, but when we got into turn one there were some holes that started to form in turns one and two. We hit one and shoved up the track. That cost us two spots."

Sides placed sixth in the dash, which started him on the outside of the third row in the main event.

"We were trying some stuff that worked the other night in Elma," he said. "It just didn't work there. We tried to make it where the car would squat and go. It just squatted and slid across the race track. As slick as it got we weren't really prepared for it. We should have been tighter or more free to bang off the curb, but that's not my style anymore."

Sides dropped several positions early and went into the work area midway through the race. His crew made a shock adjustment and Sides rallied from the back of the pack to 16th during the remainder of the race.

"The car felt better and was more drivable after the pit stop," he said. "We just tried something that didn't work to start the race."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 18 - Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, Calif. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 6 (4); Feature: 16 (6).

Abreu goes plus ten for top-five in BAPS’ Greg Hodnett Foundation Race

Date: Thursday, September 16th Event: Greg Hodnett Foundation Race Series: Open Event Track: BAPS Motor Speedway (York Haven, Pennsylvania) Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 5th (15th)

Date: Friday, September 17th Event: Jack Gunn Memorial Series: All Star Circuit of Champions Track: Williams Grove Speedway (Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania) Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 12th (15th)

Date: Saturday, September 18th Event: Dirt Classic VIII Series: All Star Circuit of Champions Track: Lincoln Speedway (Abbottstown, Pennsylvania) Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 15th (22nd)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (September 20, 2021) - It was a long weekend in the Keystone State for Rico Abreo and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing, but the team ultimately prevailed, qualifying for all three weekend headliners including the $20,000-to-win Lincoln Speedway Dirt Classic VIII. Despite just missing the top-ten in two out of the three weekend events, Abreu kicked things off with a bang, capping BAPS Motor Speedway’s Greg Hodnett Foundation Race with a hard charge from 15th to finish fifth; Abreu’s 29th top-five, 48th top-ten, of the 2021 season.

In addition to his top-five in York Haven, Abreu, pilot of the Rowdy Energy, Curb Records, Lucas Oil Products, Stadelhofer Construction, Self Made Racing, Salty’s BBQ, No. 24 sprint car, finished 12th and 15th, respectively, the following evenings, first finishing 12th after starting 15th in Williams Grove Speedway’s $7,000-to-win Jack Gunn Memorial, then ending the weekend with a rally from 22nd to finish 15th in the aforementioned Dirt Classic VIII.

Forced to do things the hard way, Abreu had to battle his way through the Dirt Classic B-Main before making a start in the 40-lap finale. The St. Helena, California-native had to resort to the B-Main after missing the A-Main points cutoff. The program utilized a double heat race format with passing points assembling the feature lineup.

Adding to the talent pool, the Jack Gunn Memorial and Dirt Classic each featured the All Star Circuit of Champions.

“Considering the level of competition we were facing, it’s tough to be disappointed with our results, but I know our potential and we’re not going to be satisfied unless we win,” Abreu said, who owns one victory thus far in 2021. “It’s been a pretty wild season, to say the least. We’ve logged a lot of miles and it hasn’t been easy for the crew, but they’ve been hanging tough and I’m proud of them. We still have a lot of racing on our schedule, so we’ll do what we can to rack up a few more wins for this Rowdy Energy team.”

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with a doubleheader at the World’s Greatest Dirt Track - Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. The weekend agenda will begin with the BeFour the Crowns Showdown featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series on Friday, followed by the 4-Crown Nationals featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions on Saturday.

Austin McCarl and Country Builders Racing 11th at Tom Tarlton Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting acclimated to each other during the Louie Vermeil Classic and the Gold Cup Race of Champions in Chico, CA, Austin McCarl and the Country Builders Racing team turned in a solider performance as the Altoona, IA driver pocked an 11th place finish with ‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’.

“Saturday night was a big improvement for us following a tough go at the Gold Cup,” Austin McCarl said. “Hanford is one of the tracks that I have ran at a few times now, so a little familiarity and some hard work over the week went a long way, but we still have improvements I think we can make.”

Getting off to a strong start in qualifying time trials, McCarl timed the Country Builders/Ochoco West Lumber/BMRS backed No. 88 entry in eighth fastest.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, McCarl would get off to a sluggish start which resulted in him losing a couple of spots in the running order. Finishing fifth, McCarl was confident heading into the feature as he was able to learn a few things over the course of his eight-lap heat.

Gridding the field from the 14th starting position, McCarl would work his way forward as he fought on the outside of the Top-10. With a very strong car under him, McCarl would make a couple of missteps in traffic which hindered in from a better finish he noted.

Still, going toe-to-toe with the best in the country in just his fifth night with Country Builders Racing, McCarl capped the Outlaws CA swing off with an 11th place finish.

“I am pretty happy with how things felt on Saturday night, and really feel like we were better than where we finished but I made a couple of mistakes,” McCarl said. “The way things work out, we have a few more races back in Hanford, CA and I think we can build off this for sure. Thanks to everyone at Country Builders Racing for their continued support.

Austin McCarl and Country Builders Racing would like to thank Country Builders, Ochoco West Lumber, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, MAAS Brothers Powder Coating, Offill Family Farms, , HRP, FK Shocks, A.R.T. Enterprise, Engler Machine, Aurora Rod Ends, Schoenfeld, Wilwood, Kistler Engines, K1 Safety Gear, Bell Helmets, Maxim Chassis, B. Scadden Design, and Octane Ink for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 5, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 0, Top 10’s: 0

ON TAP: Country Builders Racing and Austin McCarl are back at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA on Saturday night as King of the West action resumes.

 

 

Chase Johnson Earns Three Feature Victories in 26 Hours With USAC Silver Crown Debut on Tap

Inside Line Promotions - BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (Sept. 20, 2021) - Chase Johnson accomplished a new feat last weekend as he won all three features he competed in during a 26-hour period.

Johnson and May Motorsports swept the USAC West Coast Sprint Car Series races on Saturday at Bakersfield Speedway in Bakersfield, Calif., and Sunday at Kern County Raceway Park, where he and Six8 Motorsports also recorded a Bay Cities Racing Association triumph.

Momentum is clearly on Johnson's side as he is set to make his USAC Silver Crown debut this weekend at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the Four Crown Nationals. He will qualify in a Goodnight Racing entry on Friday before the race on Saturday.

"I think this is our fourth or fifth attempt at running this car for the first time," he said. "We've had bad weather and misfortune along the way, but I'm excited to turn some laps for the first time and to do so at Eldora Speedway is a dream."

Last weekend marked the most wins Johnson has earned in that short of time and pushed his season win total to eight victories, including four in his last five starts.

"It was pretty awesome," he said. "To do it both nights in the sprint car and to double down on Sunday was pretty cool. Missing the first half of the night and tagging the back of the field in the main on Saturday was cool to do as well. Then to cap the weekend by getting the job done in the midget, which was a pretty good show, was awesome. There was good money on the line and good cars so to knock that one off was pretty sweet."

The two tracks are approximately 20 minutes apart and Johnson took advantage of a unique opportunity to arrive just in time for heat races at Bakersfield Speedway.

"I had to work all day so a huge thank you goes to Jayson May and Cooper's Propane," he said. "They are the ones who made the flight possible for me to get to the track."

Johnson advanced from seventh to fourth place in his heat race at Bakersfield Speedway. However, since he missed qualifying he was relegated to the back of the field - 14th - for the A Main.

"I think we got the lead on Lap 15," he said. "There were yellows that made my job easier, but I was happy that we were able to pass most of the guys and people dropping out didn't give us a lot of spots. I knew I had to be patient to get by all those guys, but at the same time you have to be aggressive to get the job done quickly because we had to start so far back.

"We went from third to first on a mid-race restart. I drove around the second-place guy on the outside of turns one and two and I slid the leader down in turns three and four. It was pretty much smooth sailing from there and we won by a straightaway and a corner."

Johnson was just as successful in the non-wing sprint car on Sunday at Kern County Raceway Park, where he set quick time during qualifying before advancing from sixth to third place in a heat race and from fourth to win the main event.

"It played out really good," he said. "Starting fourth wasn't nearly as bad as the night before. I think we got the lead around Lap 4 or Lap 5. I knew once I got the lead I could control the pace of the race. I went in a little bit of a cruise mode to make sure I didn't make any mistakes."

Johnson's night in a midget was efficient as well. He timed in third quick during qualifying before gaining a spot to place fourth in a heat race. Johnson capped the night by rallying from sixth to win the feature.

"We qualified well and took the heat race as we could get it," he said. "That put us in a good spot to contend in the A Main. We started sixth and got up to third somewhat quickly. I was able to keep moving forward. I think we took the lead around Lap 10. It was a great night every time we hit the track.

"I want to thank everyone with May Motorsports and Six8 Motorsports for the opportunities. I'm grateful that we could make the most of them by winning every feature."

Sept. 18 - Bakersfield Speedway in Bakersfield, Calif. - Heat race: 4 (7); Feature: 1 (14).

Crockett Captures Career-Best Result at Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 20, 2021) - Roger Crockett posted a career-best performance during the 11th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial last weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Crockett finished 10th during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event opener on Thursday before recording a runner-up result on Friday and Saturday.

"We unloaded Thursday with one of the fastest cars in hot laps," he said. "We were really, really good. We drew the front row in our heat race and made the best of it by winning both preliminary nights."

Crockett's heat race win started the weekend on Thursday. He followed with a run from fourth to second place in a qualifier, which lined him up on the inside of the fourth row in the main event.

"The first night the car was really bad in the main event," he said. "We keep trying to figure out how to get it right in main events. We had zero grip and the car had zero drive. It's something we've been fighting. When we're good it's extremely good so we don't want to give up on what we're doing. We're doing something nobody else is doing so we're on our own to figure it out. When we're off we're not very good so we're trying to make gains on it."

Crockett salvaged the night with a 10th-place result, which was his 10th top 10 of the season.

The results improved on Friday when Crockett won a heat race, maneuvered from fifth to third place in a qualifier and capped the night with a charge from seventh to second in the A Main.

"We won the heat, which we needed to do from the front row, and then the qualifier was really fun battling with Scott (Bogucki) and (Jordon) Mallett," he said. "We went three wide. It was a lot of fun and our car was really good again. In the feature we were good as well. Early in the race I couldn't get by a couple of guys, but a yellow really helped me. Two guys ahead aren't going to run the same line on a restart because one wants to pass the other so as soon as they weren't nose to tail I was able to drive by both and get away. We got to second and I hated to see the white flag because I wanted to see if we could run with (Derek) Hagar. He's extremely fast on that type of track. Nobody is going to just drive by him, but I think we could have raced with him."

Crockett's second-place showing combined with his 10th-place run during the opener ranked him second in event points. That garnered the outside from row starting position for the 40-lap main event on Saturday.

Crockett led the first 32 laps before falling to second in traffic.

"It's disappointing to lead 32 laps and not win, but big picture with 68 cars there and we had consistently the most speed, you can't be disappointed with that," he said. "By ourselves we were extremely good. I was way, way too tight in traffic. In traffic one guy could have given us more room. He was running in the preferred line and I got way too tight behind him. He's back there trying to learn so that's just part of racing. It's just unfortunate to lose a win over it. However, the guy raced J.J. (Hickle) the same way. They made contact, but he made it by. J.J. ran a good race and did a good job. I think he was willing to make a more aggressive move than I was to get by and that's what won him the race."

Crockett hopes to race this weekend, but the racing plan is currently up in the air.

Williamson Garners Hard Charger Award During Hockett/McMillin Memorial Finale

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 20, 2021) - Garet Williamson capped the 11th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial by earning the Hard Charger Award last Saturday.

The Bryant Paver Motorsports driver garnered the award for passing the most cars during the A Main of the prestigious Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event hosted by Lucas Oil Speedway.

The three-day event began on Thursday with Williamson finishing fourth in a heat race and advancing from seventh to third in a qualifier. That earned enough points to lock directly into the feature, which ended with a 16 th-place finish.

"Thursday wasn't a great night," he said. "We made the show, but I wasn't aggressive enough in the A Main and we just ran around where we started."

The next night was a step forward as Williamson maneuvered from eighth to fifth place in a heat race. He won a qualifier after starting second and wrapped up the night by picking up two positions in the feature to place sixth, which was a career-best outing at the track.

"On Friday we were really good," he said. "I think I should have ran in the top three. I got to fourth and moved around. I was fast where I was and that messed me up. That was the best I've ran there and the fastest I've been competing there. I knew we had a good car going into Saturday."

Saturday's event finale began with Williamson placing third in a Last Chance Qualifier. He then won a B Main to transfer into the 19th starting spot in the main event.

"I had my RACEiver come unplugged during the three wide," he said. "I stopped and the officials put me to the tail so we actually started 26 th. We had a great car. Honestly, with another yellow or two we could have run in the top five. We had a good battle with Joe B. Miller and Kyle Bellm, and we all finished right next to each other.

"It was nice to run well and charge into the top 10. I knew we had the car to do it all weekend."

Williamson's eighth-place result was his 16th top 10 of the season.

He plans on racing this Saturday at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, and Sunday at East Moline Speedway in East Moline, Ill., with the Sprint Invaders.

Trophy Cup Field Set

by Ron Rodda

Tulare, CA…The Abreu Vineyards 27th Annual Trophy Cup Presented By Rudeen Racing entry deadline has passed and 107 entries have been accepted for the October 21-23 event at Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway. The large field of winged 360 sprints will be racing for a $200,000 purse which guarantees the Cup champion $27,000 for capturing the title.

All drivers who qualify for the Saturday night 50-lap main event are guaranteed a minimum of $5000 total for the three day event. Preliminary racing on Thursday and Friday offers two opportunities for drivers to earn points with the better of the two nights being used to select the top 48 for the Saturday heat races.

Drivers will earn points in qualifying, heats and main events they run over the three days with the top twenty in points after Saturday heat races moving directly to the big finale. Those 20 will be completely inverted by points and the top four from the B main will tag to fill the last two rows.

The payoff for just the Saturday main is $21,450 and the point fund portion totals $81,500. The Saturday A main cars are automatically the top 24 in points when the event is finished and, due to the guarantee payoff, the main basically pays $5000 to start for a cumulative payout for the three nights

Since 2020 was canceled, it will have been two years and four days between Cup events once next month’s opening night starts. The 2019 race was memorable when Rico Abreu won the main events all three nights. Abreu took the checkers from starting 5th, 10th, and 17th showing it didn’t matter where he started.

Of the 107 entries, fifteen have the driver noted as TBA. It is always interesting to speculate who might wind up in these rides and the next month will likely offer some surprises. The entire entry list can be viewed at https://www.trophycup.org/trophy-cup-drivers/

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (Sept. 17, 2021) – The 19th round of the Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction championship will see the stock production Midgets return to Glendale, Ariz. at the Adobe Mountain Speedway on Saturday night.

Prickett aims to get back into the win column this weekend, facing a 16-point deficit to series points leader Blake Bower. Bower has yet to make a stop at Adobe Mountain but will need to make at least one to be eligible for the 2021 series championship. Santa Paula’s Megan Moorhead ranks third in the standings after equaling her career-best finish with a second-place run last weekend at Ventura. The mark was previously set by the driver of the no. 20w on April 10 at Adobe Mountain.

Moorhead chased Stockton’s Caden Sarale in the Kevin Felkins-owned no. 35s across the finishline at Ventura Raceway. WMR returns to Ventura on October 16 and October 30.

Brown is fourth in the championship standings despite a 19th place effort at Ventura. Hawaiian Kala Keliinoi is just eight points ahead of Antioch’s Shawn Arriaga in the battle for fifth in the standings. Las Vegas’ Kyle Hawse ran a career-best fourth at Ventura and sits seventh followed by Cameron Beard of Atwater, French Camp’s Sage Bordenave, and Brent as the top-ten.

Champion Oil Now Offers Full-Synthetic Racing Power Steering Fluid

(Clinton, MO / 09.17.21) Champion Oil, a PLZ Aeroscience Company and a recognized leader in racing and specialty lubricants, now offers Champion Full-Synthetic Racing Power Steering Fluid. Part #4370H.

https://www.championbrands.com/champion-full-synthetic-racing-power-steering-fluid/

“Racing power steering fluid (PSF) is an essential part of keeping race cars at peak performance. A top tier power steering fluid like Champion’s part #4370H ensures the hoses, pistons, valves, and power steering pump work optimally and not start to deteriorate,” stated Karl Dedolph of Champion Oil.

“Champion Full-Synthetic Racing Power Steering Fluid reduces temperatures and delivers consistent steering response in competition applications. It has exceptional low temperature flow that reduces initial drag on the power steering pump.”

“Its’ robust formulation is a full-synthetic fluid that provides improved thermal stability for less pressure drop as temperatures rise. It also offers high temperature foam resistance for better cooling and improved steering precision.”

“Champion’s Racing PSF is a hydraulic fluid used in the steering system to create a hydraulic link between the steering wheel and the front wheels. It decreases the amount of effort required to turn the wheels”.

“It also lubricates the moving parts within the steering system. It suppresses foaming and prevents corrosion in the power steering gear and steering pump, which keeps performance vehicles in circle track, road racing, off-road, asphalt, drifting, autocross, etc. working optimally”, added Dedolph.

Champion’s Racing PSF meets or exceeds all specification standards that are requirements for viscosity, detergents, additives, and other components of this type of fluid. It is specifically engineered for racing applications. Components and specifications include: Decene Homopolymer Hydrotreated, Heterocyclic Ether, Alkaryl Amine, Zinc Alkydithiophosphate, Dibutylhydrogen Phosphite, Carboxylic Acid Ester, Toluene, Diphenylamine, Aryl Phosphite, and Alkylated Phenol. / Flash Point C (F) 225 (437)/ Pour point C (F) -40 (-40)/ Viscosity @ 40C, 104F cSt 52.5 / Viscosity @ 100C, 211F cSt 11.2 / Viscosity Index 23 / Color- Pale yellow to golden brown.

https://www.championbrands.com/champion-full-synthetic-racing-power-steering-fluid/

“A good maintenance practice for racers is to inspect the power steering fluid occasionally, it should maintain its’ color. If it’s dark, that’s a sign it’s time to change it. If you see any dirt, debris, or sludge in the power steering fluid, it’s time for the system to be flushed. If you hear some sort of noise when the wheel is turned or see some leaks, that may be another sign it’s time to change the fluid.”

ROSS ROBINSON SCORES AN EMOTIONAL 1ST PACE RUSH LATE MODEL WIN OF 2021 AT GEORGETOWN; CHRIS FLEMING MAKES HISTORY BY WINNING THE 1ST EVER RUSH LATE MODEL RACE AT LAND OF LEGENDS; CHAD RUHLMAN & GALE RUTH JR TRADE RUSH SPRINT WINS IN HUNT OF THE $5000 EQUIPMENT RENTAL OPTIONS WEEKLY SERIES TITLE
By Marcie Barlow

(September 17, 2021) -
(Pulaski, PA)...Another action packed weekend of Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC action saw Ross Robinson scored an emotional first RUSH Late Model win of the season at Georgetown Speedway on Friday night, while Chris Fleming made history by winning the first ever RUSH sanctioned event at Land of Legends on Saturday night. Chad Ruhlman and Gale Ruth, Jr. split RUSH Sprint Cars wins as they fight it out for the $5,000 to-win Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series championship. It was a full complement of RUSH Racing Series divisions throughout the weekend with the exception of the RUSH Pro Mods, who had the weekend off.

An emotional Ross Robinson was victorious at Georgetown Speedway on Friday night. Robinson, who had lost his father just six days earlier, started on the pole and led the 20-lap main event from the start to capture the win. Robinson's first RUSH win of 2021 was worth $1,000. Matt Hill, who started seventh, finished in second and was followed across the line by Trevor Collins, Donald Lingo, Jr. and Joey Warren.

At Dog Hollow Speedway Michael Duritsky, Jr. was the winner in Pace Performance RUSH Late Model action for the second week in a row. The Masontown, Pa. driver led the entire distance of the 20-lap main event to score the victory, which was also his third of the season at the speedway as he looks to clinch the track championship. Overall it was Duritsky’s fourth win on the circuit in 2021. Joe Moyer, newcomer Corey Neal, Mark Rend and Rob Coffaro all recorded their season best finishes in second through fifth.

The Land of The Legends Raceway in Canandaigua, NY hosted a special event for the Pace Performance RUSH Late Models on Saturday evening. Chad Homan, a former champion at the speedway who also has experience in Stocks and Big-Block Modifieds, started on the pole and led the first eight circuits before Sean Beardsley took the lead. Beardsley continued to pull away from the field while Chris Fleming methodically worked his way through the field. Fleming he got by Homan on the 16th circuit and set his sights on Beardsley. A lap 23 caution provided Fleming with the opportunity he needed as he blasted by Beardsley when the action resumed to score a convincing win and a $1,000 payday. Beardsley claimed second with Bret Belden, Homan and Beamer Guzzardi finishing third through fifth.

Flynn’s Tire/Born2Run Lubricants Late Model Touring Series action returned to Sharon Speedway on Saturday as the “Cider Jug 40” was on the card presented by Zarin Truck & Auto and an anonymous donor in honor of Autism Awareness. They say that “turnabout is fair play” and after a heartbreaking loss to Chub Frank just two weeks ago, Joe Martin was not to be denied as he passed Jeremy Wonderling with one lap to go to score the victory and a $4,000 payday.

Martin took the lead over Logan Zarin and Wonderling at the start. As the duo of Martin and Zarin began to distance themselves from the field, Will Thomas III and Kyle Hardy battled Wonderling for third. By lap 13 lapped traffic came into play and Zarin closed the gap on Martin and Thomas while Wonderling and Hardy closed the gap on Zarin. The restart following a lap 26 caution saw Zarin bobble which allowed Wonderling to pass both Zarin and Thomas for the second position. Zarin’s struggle also caused Thomas to drop out of the top five and enabled eighth place starter Russ King to join in the battle for fourth with Hardy. Hardy and King battled for nearly ten laps with Hardy finally getting under King in turn three on lap 37; unfortunately, the two made contact which resulted in a caution, a flat tire for King.

The final two laps of green flag action saw Wonderling use the outside to take the lead away from Martin. Martin then battled back to charge around Wonderling as the white flag waved. Martin fended off Wonderling’s last lap challenge to score the win by 0.430 seconds. The victory ended a seven-year winless drought on the Tour for Martin, whose lone Tour victory came on August 30, 2014 at McKean County Raceway. Wonderling captured the second position followed by Hardy, Zarin and Matt Latta.

Zach Gunn and Cole Petrelle led the Pace Performance RUSH Late Models to the green in their 20-lap main event Saturday night at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. Gunn grabbed the lead; however, a six-car pileup in turn four slowed the field as the first lap was completed. Petrelle overtook Gunn and led lap two before fifth place starter Kyle Lukon took over the top spot on lap three. Lukon weathered a caution on lap six and went on to lead the final 14 circuits to score his third win of the season at the Imperial, Pa. oval. Petrelle held off Zach Gunn for second with Nico Dabecco and Zach Morrow rounding out the top five.

Woodhull Raceway hosted the annual “Lyle Sherwood Memorial” on Saturday night. Newly crowned track champion Brian Knowles visited the speedway’s victory lane for the sixth time and he did it in dramatic style as he nursed a mount with front end suspension damage to the win for the final 13 circuits. It was Knowles fourth straight win at Woodhull and ninth overall on the circuit in 2021 as he moved into third place in the National Weekly Series standings. Chuck LaFleur capitalized on a final lap miscue by Steve LeBarron to finish second over Jason McGregor, Tony Kelley and Jared Keeney.

The Pace Performance RUSH Late Models competed in the “Lee Stultz Memorial” at Winchester Speedway Saturday evening. Levi Crowl scored his fifth victory of the season at the Virginia oval. Chuck Bowie made his first visit in more than two months and was a season best second. Tanner Kerr was third in just his fourth race of the year. Devin Brannon returned after missing the past three races and his fourth place was his ninth top five in nine starts! Megan Mann was fifth.

The Pace Performance RUSH Sprint Cars were in action both Friday and Saturday for Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series events. The two days of racing action took place along the Route 7 corridor at Raceway 7 and Sharon Speedway. Friday’s action took place at Sharon Speedway as the division headlined night one of the “Apple Festival Nationals”. An invert 0 saw RUSH Sprint stars Gale Ruth, Jr. and Chad Ruhlman lead the field to green. Ruhlman took the lead with Ruth staying in striking distance of the leader and Jarod Larson following closely in third should Ruhlman or Ruth bobble. The leaders hit lapped traffic on the 11th circuit but Ruth was unable to make up any ground on Ruhlman as the Erie, Pa. resident went on to score his season’s seventh victory by 4.399 second. The caution-free 20-lap event was completed in just 6:51 minutes. Ruth came home in the second spot for the third time in the last four races at the Hartford, Ohio oval. Finishing Larson picked up another top five finish. Brian Hartzell was a season best Sharon fourth with Ryan Fraley fifth.

On Saturday evening the wingless warriors made the short trip north to compete in Raceway 7’s “September Shootout” for their first appearance of the season at the Conneaut, Ohio oval. The main event had John Mollick joining Ruhlman on the front row to start the event. Ruhlman led the first three circuits before Mollick pulled even with Ruhlman on lap four. By lap five, sixth place starter Gale Ruth, Jr. joined in the battle for the top spot. The trio engaged in a heated battle and swapped the lead several times during the next two laps before Ruth gained a small advantage and the lead on lap eight. By the midway point Ruth found a little breathing room, and went on to lead the remaining laps to score his first ever Raceway 7 victory and eighth overall of 2021, worth $800. Ruhlman finished in the runner-up position with Mollick claiming third. Rod George finished fourth with Tyler Newhart fifth.

The lone Pace Performance RUSH Sportsman Modified event took place at Sharon Speedway on Saturday also part of the “Apple Festival Nationals”. Chas Wolbert passed J.C. Boyer at the start of the feature event and was never challenged to capture his fifth Sharon Speedway win of the season, which came in the $800 to-win Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Touring Series event. Wolbert, the newly crowned $3500 Hovis Weekly Series Champion, was followed by Rob Kristyak, Boyer, Tony Tatgenhorst and Clayton Deems at the checkered flag.

Jeremy Zufall was the winner in RUSH Stock Car action at Dog Hollow Speedway. It was Zufall’s eighth of the year at Dog Hollow and ninth overall in Pace Performance Weekly Series action, which propelled him into the Weekly Series points lead. Bob Torquato was runner-up for the second straight week. Tim Laughard’s third was his worst finish since debuting on August 6.

The RUSH Karting Series held both afternoon and evening races last Saturday to end the season at Stateline Speedway Karts. Scoring wins were Bexley Smith and Emmie Bush (Amateur); Ethan Arnone swept both JR-1 events, Cody Rickard and Wyatt Long (JR-2), and Mike Boardman and Morgan Curry (Adults).

Pace Performance RUSH competitors at Potomac Speedway, Delaware International Speedway, Genesee Speedway, Bradford Speedway and Eriez Speedway had the week off. Potomac, Delaware, and Genesee will also be dark this weekend.

Weekly Pace Performance RUSH Late Model action begins this weekend on Friday evening at Dog Hollow Speedway. Eriez Speedway is hosting the ninth annual “September Sweeps” on both Friday and Saturday with the RUSH Late Models competing for $2,000 to-win. Saturday evening’s RUSH racing action includes Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway where the Late Models, Sprints and Sportsman Modifieds will all be in action. The RUSH Late Models will also be in action at Winchester Speedway and Woodhull Raceway on Saturday. Bradford Speedway hosts the “Jim Torrence Memorial” on Sunday with the RUSH Late Models and Pro Mods in action.

Goldesberry Earns Two More Top 10’s

Springfield, IL (September 17, 2021)- Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team were back in action for two races with the IRA last weekend. The weekend started at Outagamie Speedway in Seymour, WI on Friday and Saturday the action moved west to Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, WI.

There were 21 cars on hand at Seymour and the Rockstar Energy Drink #65 laid down a lap that was good enough for sixth quick. Goldesberry would start third in his heat race on a very fast track that was difficult to pass on. Not needing to take any chances to make the dash redraw, Goldesberry finished third. He would draw the #2 for Dash #1 putting the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim on the outside front row for the dash and Goldesberry would finish third. For the feature event, Goldesberry lined up inside the third row for the 30 lapper. The Rockstar Energy Drink car was battling with the top cars the entire race and ended up crossing the line in fourth.

“Overall, Seymour was a good night. The track was narrow early in the night but widened out for the feature.” said Goldesberry. “It was good to get another top 5 for our Rockstar team.”

Saturday night at Cedar Lake was the Jerry Richert Memorial and a race the team has had circled on the calendar since the beginning of the year. Unfortunately, the night did not get started off to a good start. After being in the top 10 during hot laps, the Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim had the engine lay down before taking the checkers. The team thought it was the ignition box so they changed it but the problem still was not fixed. After further evaluation it was found that one of the exhaust valves had broke. The team went to work and changed engines but was forced to miss qualifying and the heat races. With a new bullet between the frame rails, Goldesberry tagged the tail of the 10 lap B main. With the top four cars transferring to the feature, Goldesberry wasted no time getting to the front and finish second putting the Rockstar Energy Drink #65 into the show. Having to start 20th in the feature, Goldesberry was able to use all 30 laps to get into the Top 10 and finish ninth.

“Unfortunately, we broke an engine in hot laps at Cedar Lake. We really like that racetrack and it was a bummer we missed the first half of the night. We got the engine changed and fought back to salvage a Top 10.” said Goldesberry

With the season winding down and just three races left on the IRA schedule, Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team will be at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, WI this Saturday night.

KNIGHTS OF THUNDER AND ACTION SPRINT TOUR SET FOR FINAL MERRITTVILLE VISIT OF 2021

By Tommy Goudge (September 16, 2021) – The Pinty’s Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car series and Pinty’s Action Sprint Tour Crate Sprint Car series are set for their final visits to Merrittville Speedway in 2021. Warm weather, great racing, and Merrittville’s famous food will greet fans who make the trip to the Thorold, Ontario track, while the event will also be broadcast live on GForceTV.

Each tour has run three events at Merrittville this season, and A-Main wins for drivers not named Poirier or Dykstra have been extremely hard to come by. Poirier has won all three Knights of Thunder races held at Merrittville this season, including a dominating victory at the historic Niagara Region track last Saturday. Dykstra has won two of the three Action Sprint Tour races at Merrittville this season, and took a runner-up finish behind Nick Sheridan there on August 6.

While Poirier’s sparkling record this season is well-documented, the driver with the best Knights of Thunder record at Merrittville this season other than Poirier is the unheralded Liam Martin. The 18-year-old has been in the top five twice at the Niagara Region track this season, including a runner-up last Saturday after starting in row six. Josh Hansen – another teenager – is the only other KoT driver with multiple top fives at Merrittville this season.

Jim Huppunen has a runner-up and three total top tens at Merrittville this season, but the results don’t show how competitive the veteran driver has been there this year. Huppunen spun and restarted at the back of the pack in two of the three races, including a charge to sixth last week. Other drivers to watch on Friday include Mikey Kruchka, Ryan Turner, Mack DeMan, and Aaron Turkey, who have all been on the podium at Merrittville this year.

Jesse Costa is the only driver besides Dykstra to score top fives in all three Merrittville AST events this year, but Costa won’t be in competition on Friday as he continues to recover from a crash at Brighton on Labour Day weekend. Sheridan took a podium finish at Merrittville in July before taking a win in August, while Lucas Smith and Steven Beckett also have two top fives there with AST this season. Allan Downey scored a podium finish at Merrittville last month, and will be looking for a repeat of the last September AST race at Merrittville; Downey secured his first Sprint Car win at Merrittville on September 18, 2020.

Several teams had work to do after a rough night at Southern Ontario Motor Speedway last Saturday. Dykstra and Sheridan both crashed in the A-Main, while Ryan Fraser had engine trouble. The biggest incident of the night was Brett Stratford’s heat race crash which completely destroyed his BS39 car. All four drivers are planning to race at Merrittville on Friday night, including Stratford who took a runner-up finish in the most recent AST event held there. Darren Dryden scored the win at SOMS, his first in a Sprint Car and on a dirt track.

CHAMPIONSHIP CHASES
Jordan Poirier’s Knights of Thunder points lead was dwindling before last weekend’s events at Humberstone and Merrittville, but the Quebec driver put a stop to that trend by dominating the weekend. Poirier now holds a commanding 63 point advantage with three events left on the 2021 schedule. Ryan Turner moved into second in the standings last weekend, but Jim Huppunen is just one point behind in third. Josh Hansen and Travis Cunningham hold spots in the current top five, while DJ Christie is right behind Cunningham in sixth. Liam Martin, Cory Turner, and Jamie Turner are seventh, eighth, and ninth respectively, while Tyler Rand and Holly Porter are tied for 10th.

Jacob Dykstra’s Action Sprint Tour points lead shrank substantially after his crash at SOMS last weekend, but he still holds a 47 point lead over Allan Downey. Nick Sheridan, Eric Gledhill, and Lucas Smith hold the remaining top five spots, while Darren Dryden, Brett Stratford, Rob Neely, Dereck Lemyre, and Dale Curran round out the top ten.

RECAPPING FLOWDYNAMICS RACING TRIP TO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

(Ontario, CA, September 15, 2021) Flowdynamics Racing drivers Matt McCarthy and Logan Williams hit the road to Northern California over Labor Day weekend. The duo qualified for five of the six possible main event starts on the tracks in the upper portion of the state.

Driving from Southern California, the Flowdynamics crew first journeyed to the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico for two rounds of racing at the “13th Annual Louie Vermeil Classic.” A fine field of 35-cars showed up for the first of the three nights of racing. Williams, who lives in Yorba Linda, California, turned in the 10th fastest qualifying time of the night on the mile oval with a lap of 13.464. McCarthy clocked in at 13.847, which was 21st quickest.

The first race of the weekend was the 10-lap Flowdynamics sponsored heat. McCarthy, who calls Riverside, California home, started on the pole and led every inch of the way. He was challenged on the freshly groomed racetrack over the first six-laps but pulled away when the track started coming in around lap seven. He won the heat by over a half straightaway. It was his second heat race victory in the USAC/CRA Series in 2021 and it put him straight into the main event.

PAS 6-19-21=5w=0062-3.jpg Logan Williams. Doug Allen Photos.

Williams was up a few moments later in the second heat race of the night. Starting fourth, he slid back to sixth, but came back through the pack and was up to third. However, disaster struck when he got clobbered and knocked out of the race in turn one on the fifth circuit. That sent him to the 12-lap B Main where he had to finish 6th or better to transfer into the A main. Unfortunately, he placed seventh, but he was able to get into the 30-lapper by using an available provisional.

In the main, Williams came from 23rd to finish 17th. McCarthy, who started 16th, was one spot behind Williams when the checkered flag signaled an end to the race.

The second night of action at Chico saw Williams turn in the 15th fastest time of the 30 cars on hand with a lap of 14.220. McCarthy was just a tick behind at 14.342, which was 19th best on the night. The teammates were matched up in the third heat race and things did not go the way they hoped. After a spirited battle between themselves for the final transfer spot, McCarthy ended up sixth and Williams placed eighth. That meant a trip to the B Main for both.

An early tangle in the B Main saw McCarthy’s night come to a premature end. When two cars in front of him tangled and stopped, he slid sideways to avoid them. After he came to a halt, another car arrived late and drilled the #28M. His front end was damaged, and he was taken off the track on the back of a tow truck.

Things went a lot better for Williams in the B as he finished second and earned a ticket into the main event. The young driver ran around the 11th spot for most of the race before ending up 17th at the finish.

The final night of the Northern California trip came at the Petaluma Speedway on Monday, September 6th. Williams ended up being the sixth fastest qualifier when he toured the 3/8-mile banked clay oval in 14.420. McCarthy was eighth fastest at 14.503. They squared off against each other in the second heat and placed third and fourth in the 10-lapper. In the final main event before hitting the highway south for home, McCarthy recorded the team’s best finish of the trip when he placed ninth. Williams took the checkered in 13th.

The Flowdynamics drivers had last weekend and this weekend off. They will be back to slinging clay when the USAC/CRA Sprint Cars hit Perris Auto Speedway for the Glen Howard Memorial on Saturday, September 25th.

McCarthy and Williams would like to thank the following sponsors for making the 2021 season possible. Flowdynamics Inc., JFK Design Build, Drink-Pac, Preferred Insulation, DRC Chassis, Kistler Racing and Benic Enterprises.

EDDIE TAFOYA JR’S THREE RACE USAC/CRA TRIP TO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

(Chino Hills, CA, September 12, 2021) Fresh off his latest trip to race with the USAC National Sprint Car Series in the “10th Annual Smackdown” at the Kokomo Speedway, Eddie Tafoya Jr. returned to the west coast just in time to compete in three USAC/CRA Sprint Car races in Northern California on Labor Day weekend. His best finish of the three was an 11th at the series annual visit to the Petaluma Speedway.

The first two races of the trek to Nor Cal took Tafoya to the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico. They marked the 2019 USAC/CRA and USAC Southwest Series Rookie of the Year’s first appearance at the historic track. In addition, those two races were the 13th running of the famed “Louie Vermeil Classic.” Normally staged on the large mile Calistoga Speedway, this year’s version was switched to the much tighter Chico quarter-mile oval.

The first night of the three-race trip was on Saturday, September 4th and Tafoya qualified 30th. In his 10-lap heat race he ended up sixth and that meant he had to go to the B Main. The Chino Hills, California driver needed to finish in the top six in the B Main to get into the night’s 30-lap finale. He did that with room to spare when he finished fourth in the 12-lapper. A gear issue in the main event saw the #51T finish 20th after starting 21st.

The second night at Chico saw Tafoya only get one lap on the clocks in qualifying. Issues on that lap plagued him all night long as they meant he had to start in the back in all of his races. Coming from the eighth and last starting spot in his 10-lap heat, Tafoya had to get to fourth to go straight to the A Main. He made a late race charge and advanced three spots to fifth. On the last lap, he kept on charging, but when the checkered came down he was one car length shy of taking the transfer spot. Once again, he was going to have to get it done in the B Main.

Starting at the back of the B in the 15th position, things looked bleak. It meant he was going to have to pass nine cars in just 12-laps to get into the A Main. Somebody forgot to tell the young driver that things did not look good. Once the green flag flew, he kept his focus and moved forward. In all, he passed 10 cars and finished fifth! That put him in the A Main for the second straight night. For the 30-lapper he took his spot at the back one more frustrating time. That was the 22nd position and once again, he moved forward. This time he got up to, and finished 16th in the 30-lap finale.

At the final of the three nights at Petaluma Speedway, Tafoya qualified 12th fastest in the 15-car field. For the heat race it was the exact opposite of 24 hours earlier when he started at the back. This time he started on the front row, led the first five laps, and finished second. For the main he started on the outside of row sixth in 12th. There were some stagger issues and he finished 11th.

While the three days did not go as hoped, there were bright spots. Despite battling with some issues, Tafoya moved forward in all three of the A Mains he started as well as in both B Mains. The team learned a lot and will file it for the next time they hit the two Nor Cal tracks in 2022.

Next up for the Specialty Fasteners team will be the September 25th “Glen Howard Memorial” at Perris Auto Speedway. Tafoya will have his great looking shirts for sale on the track at the intermission autograph session and in the pits after the races. If you cannot make it and wish to purchase one, contact Tafoya on Facebook or Instagram.

Fans can follow Tafoya on Instagram @eddietafoya51.

Tafoya and his team would like to thank the following sponsors for being a part of the 2021 racing campaign. Specialty Fasteners, BR Performance, DRC Chassis, Ryder Racing Engines, Benic Enterprises, Simpson, and Bell. If you or your company would like to become a part of the team in 2021, please give them a call or send an Email to the contact information at the top of this press release.

Bogucki Leads SawBlade.com Sponsored Team to ASCS National Tour Victory at I-80 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 15, 2021) - Scott Bogucki recorded his fourth victory of the season during Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition last Friday at I-80 Speedway.

The SawBlade.com sponsored driver swept the night in impressive fashion, winning a pair of heat races before dominating the Bobby Parker Memorial main event.

"I really like that place and the car was good," he said. "That was probably the best performance we've had. We were quickest in hot laps, won the first heat, won the second heat and won the feature. It was a clean sweep."

Bogucki captured his first heat race from the outside of the front row. The second heat race featured a charge from eighth to win.

"Most of the cars I got on the start of the second heat race," he said. "The inside row went left and the outside row went right. We got maybe four spots going right through the middle. I got the lead on a restart with three laps to go."

That made Bogucki the high-points driver and garnered the pole position for the 30-lap A Main.

"I hate starting on the pole," he said. "There's only two things you can do, win or lose. We had a good race though. It was like 30 hot laps and I think we won by two seconds."

Bogucki returned to the track on Saturday for the Casey's Midwest Fall Brawl. He advanced from third to second place in a heat race before gaining a position in the feature to end seventh.

"I think we ran up to fourth in two laps and then it was a steady fade from then on," he said. "Honestly, I feel like I missed it with the car on Saturday, which was on me. We were way too free."

The next event on tap for Bogucki is the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. He has earned a podium finish during the event two of the last three years, including a career-best runner-up result in the 2018 finale.

"I've been really, really good or really, really bad there," he said. "It's a race I definitely want to win. We'll be giving it our all."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 10 - I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. - Heat race #1: 1 (2); Heat race #2: 1 (8); Feature: 1 (1).

Wilson Posts Top-Five Performances at Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - FREMONT, Ohio (Sept. 15, 2021) - Greg Wilson enjoyed one of his most productive weekends of the season in his home state of Ohio.

The Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics sponsored driver guided Seeling Motorsports to a fourth-place finish on Friday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica before placing fifth on Saturday at Fremont Speedway.

"We actually timed good," he said. "We've needed to work on qualifying and I felt like after Attica two weeks ago and what we did that Sunday we were headed down the right path. That showed last weekend. What Andy (Potter) and I have thought and what he's doing is definitely the right way. We just have to keep fine-tuning."

The weekend began on Friday with Wilson qualifying second quickest. He then finished where he started - third - in a heat race to lock himself into the 10th starting spot in the A Main.

"We positioned ourselves a lot better for a good finish," he said. "Anywhere you go starting 10th and working through the field is not easy. I felt like we were a little better than even fourth, but we couldn't get there the way the race played out. If we would have rolled off the front row they would have had a hell of a time catching us. I was pretty happy."

Wilson's fourth-place outing was his 10th top-five run of the season.

Things continued to roll on Saturday at Fremont Speedway, where Wilson set quick time in his group. A third-place finish in a heat race lined Wilson up on the inside of the fifth row for the main event.

"The track was a little choppy and a little wetter than you'd normally see Fremont," he said. "It's not something we've been particularly good at, but we were passing race cars. I don't think we had a car to win or the driver did a good enough job to win, but I felt we could have run third. Third through sixth were in a group. The only way one of us was going to move forward or backward was if someone made a mistake. I felt like we could have easily ran third through sixth and we ended up fifth."

Wilson plans on returning to Fremont Speedway this Saturday.

"We're on the verge of being competitive for a win," he said. "When you start smelling the victories, the fourths and fifths don't sit as well. But after you think about where we were a couple of months ago and where we are now I'm pretty happy."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 10 - Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 4 (10).

Amantea Scores Seventh-Place Finish With USAC East Coast Sprint Cars at Winchester Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WINCHESTER, Va. (Sept. 15, 2021) - Joey Amantea produced a seventh-place result Saturday night with the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars at Winchester Speedway.

"It was a decent night for us and at times we had a really good race car," he said. "It's getting to the point in the season where we are running out of chances to run well so we're happy with a top 10."

Amantea kicked off his third career visit to the track by advancing four positions in a heat race to finish fourth. He qualified for the feature redraw and garnered the third starting spot for the A Main.

Unfortunately, Amantea struggled with steering woes throughout the duration of the feature and fell to seventh. The top-10 run was the ninth of the season for Amantea with the series.

"We were really good in the heat race and with a couple more laps we were gaining on third there," he said. "The motor was lugging down a bit early and the steering wheel was kind of locking up, too. We were not able to capitalize on a good starting spot, but still came away with a solid top 10."

Amantea currently ranks eighth in the championship standings and only trails fifth place by 90 markers with five events remaining on the 2021 series schedule.

"This season has not met my expectations by any means, but we seem to be kind of gaining on things here late," he said. "We're moving up in the points and we're just going to try to get more consistent and start clicking off good runs each time out."

Next up for Amantea will be a micro sprint race at Shellhammer's Speedway in Shoemakersville, Pa., on Wednesday followed by a trip to Linda's Speedway in Jonestown, Pa., on Friday for another night of wingless micro sprint competition.

"We've really had a tough go of it in the micro this season so we're really trying to get that program going again in the right direction," he said. "This week is just about evaluating what we have and trying to click off a solid run and contend for wins."

Henderson and Sandvig Produce Podium During Jerry Richert Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (Sept. 15, 2021) - Justin Henderson piloted the Mike Sandvig owned sprint car to a second-place finish Saturday night during the 21st annual Jerry Richert Memorial at Cedar Lake Speedway.

Henderson also won the 360ci sprint car portion of the event behind the wheel of his family owned MAX Motorsports No. 83 prior to the Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Cars main event.

"Every time we've hit the track this season I feel like we've been a top-three car and you want to find your way to the podium each night," he said. "Lapped traffic really got us, but overall if I clean up a few mistakes here and there we're sitting in Victory Lane and not second."

With 27 cars in attendance, Henderson kicked off the night qualifying second quickest with a lap of 11.898 seconds. He then advanced two positions in a heat race to finish second and qualify for the dash.

Henderson gained two positions in the dash to finish third and garner the sixth starting spot for the A Main as a result. Looking to earn his second career victory in the event, Henderson rocketed around the top of the track to the runner-up position at the completion of the opening lap. The leader caught traffic on Lap 6 and Henderson capitalized to move into the lead.

"When we went into turns one and two the top really just opened up," he said. "I had to kind of follow the leader there a bit and I kind of snookered him into going to the bottom and I got around him on the top."

Henderson briefly lost the lead one lap later in traffic only to regain it on Lap 8. He was setting an extremely fast pace, but traffic became tougher to navigate. With only a handful of laps to go Henderson fell to second, which is where he finished. The top-five effort was the 17th of the season for Henderson and Sandvig.

"My right rear was a little more worn out then I thought it was and if I'd have found the rubber earlier and moved down it would have helped a ton," he said. "If I'd made a few less mistakes in Mike's car we'd have swept the night, but we definitely filled up the confidence bank."

The duo will take this week off before heading to Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., on Sept. 25-26 for a Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association doubleheader. Night 1 pays $4,000 to win and the finale offers $5,000 to win.

Henderson holds a 28-point advantage in the track's championship standings and is looking to lock up the 410 title for the second time in his career. It would be the first career points championship for Sandvig and that has Henderson excited the most.

"I definitely want to win both nights at Huset's and if we do that the points championship will take care of itself," he said. "It'd be nice to win a championship for Mike and get that off the old bucket list. Points racing can be tough as you can get a little hesitant sometimes with your driving so we're going to try and put that behind us and finish the season strong."

Lucas Oil Speedway Spotlight: With eye on the ASCS big prize, Covington seeks first Hockett/McMillin Memorial win
WHEATLAND, MO. (Sept. 14, 2021) - As one of the veterans on the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series Presented by MAVTV Motorsports Network, Matt Covington is qualified to rank this week’s 11th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway as one of the biggest events of the season.

“For the national tour as a whole, the Hockett/McMillin race is definitely in the top three,” Covington said. “The Knoxville Nationals, The Dirt Cup and the Hockett/McMillin are probably the three majors we would consider our biggest races.

“A lot of it is just the names that are associated with it,” he added, pointing to a three-day racing extravaganza that honors the legacy of Jesse Hockett, from Warsaw, Missouri, who was a star in both the winged and non-wing sprint divisions when he lost his life in a shop accident in 2010. His cousin and crew chief, Daniel McMillin, was killed in an automobile accident in 2006.

“You take that and combine it with what is the best facility that we race at all year and the big car count,” Covington said. “You get 60-something winged sprint cars there, quality cars, so you get stiff competition racing for a good memorial race. And it pays $10,000 to win.”

That’s the big prize in the Saturday-night finale for the ASCS winged competitors. Drivers in both the ASCS winged and POWRi WAR wingless divisions compete both Thursday and Friday with combined points from heat races, qualifiers, B-mains and A-mains helping to set the lineup for Saturday night’s ASCS main event and $3,077-to-win WAR feature.

Covington, from Glenpool, Oklahoma, also sees three nights of action as an opportunity to shake up the points battle. Entering a Tuesday night race in Spencer, Iowa, fellow Oklahoman Blake Hahn held a 63-point lead over Covington with J.J. Hickle 76 behind.

“As a national tour driver you also look at it as a race you can make up some real ground on somebody because of the stiffer competition and car count,” he said. “A lot of the races we go to, there’s only 24 cars there and a lot of times you take your top three or four points on the national tour and we all run first, second, third and fourth. Or run third, fourth, fifth and sixth. It always seems we’re right there next to one another.

“So when we get to a race where there is more quality cars, it has a tendency to shake things up.”

Covington, a member of the Quarter-Midget Hall of Fame, said it’s impossible - with only a handful of events remaining on the 2021 schedule - not to think about winning the championship.

“You think about it a lot, but at the same time … I’ve traveled around with the tour for a long time and you have to take it one race at a time,” he said. “I try to drive the same way every single week with the same mentality. It would be too easy to get worked up. Say you’re in the points lead, it would be too easy to get conservative. Or say you’re behind a little bit and you feel you have to push the issue to make up ground and you end up making a mistake.

“If you can approach every race the same way, with the same mind-set, that’s the way I try to be.”

Covington, 31, would love to win his first Hockett/McMillin on Saturday for more than the points and prestige. While he raced against Hockett only a few times before Jesse’s tragic death, Covington knows what “The Rocket” meant to the open-wheel racing world. Winning this race would be an ultimate tribute.

“I didn’t know Jesse very well personally, but he was one of the fastest guys and most-popular guys,” Covington said. “It didn’t surprise me that they had a Hockett race because everybody liked Jesse. He was a real likable guy and was just starting to prove himself in a winged car, on his way to being one of the top winged guys there was.”

Covington said he’s hopeful that this is the year, on a Wheatland oval he enjoys, that he finally is able to pay tribute to Hockett from victory lane.

“I had a rough go there last year, but that’s not the norm,” he said. “Normally, we’re on the podium and in contention for the win. I haven’t won a race there yet, but I’ve run second and third a crap-ton and I feel like I’m due to win one there.”

BALOG OPENS TUSCARORA 50 WEEKEND WITH A PODIUM FINISH, CLAIMS TOP TEN IN THE $54,000-TO-WIN FINALE AT PORT ROYAL SPEEDWAY

Hartland, Wisconsin (September 14th, 2021) – Bill Balog and B Squared Motorsports kicked off their rookie Tuscarora 50 weekend with a bang on the first of the three-day Central Pennsylvania blockbuster event. The Anderson’s Maple Syrup #17B unloaded fast from the trailer and never looked back.

After qualifying seventh overall in time trials on opening night, Balog claimed the All Star Circuit of Champions Heat Race #2 victory, qualifying him for the Dash Redraw, where the Hartland, WI resident drew the pole position. After securing the Dash #2 victory, the CK Contractors LLC, Buesser Concrete, Wisecup Siding, Howard Law, Wayne Corini, CPA, Lein Acres, Turn It Up Media sprint car started on the outside of the front row for the Thursday night preliminary victory worth $8,000. AJ Flick earned the initial advantage from the pole position, leading the first eight circuits before surrendering the lead to the “North Pole Nightmare” as the lead duo hit lapped traffic. Bill would trade sliders with Brent Marks for the lead but ultimately would settle for a second-place finish as the fifth starting Pennsylvania native went on to take the win. It was the seventh 2021 series podium finish for Balog, the two-time 2021 All Star Circuit of Champions feature winner and rookie.

“We were good here in April and that gave us confidence early. You really need to qualify well here at Port Royal and we were able to do that. We’re getting better and better at understanding the attitude of the car at these bigger tracks.” said Balog, driver of the Rocky Rococo's Pizza, Forest Brook Farms LLC/Forest Brook Trucking LLC, Indian Motorcycle of Metro Milwaukee, Utica Bar, Mr. Jim's Racing, Sam I Am, DSG, M3 Custom Creations, All Star Performance, Behling Racing Equipment, HRP, FK Rod Ends, Outerwears Inc., Dirty Slide Jobs, Midland Performance Inc., K1 Race Gear, XYZ Machining, BLZ sprint car.

Balog and the Anderson’s Maple Syrup #17B once again qualified well on Friday’s “Night before the 50” which translated into a second starting position and runner up finish in their heat race, qualifying them for a 13th place starting position in the $10,000 to win feature event. Bill battled into the top 10 in the 30 lap main event and ultimately moved up +2 spots from his starting position and finished the All Star Circuit of Champions feature in 11th.

Qualifying for Saturday’s 50-lap, $54,000-to-win finale against a 57-car field featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions would prove to be a bigger challenge after missing the heat race invert by under 0.01 seconds in qualifying and forcing Balog, the 10x IRA Sprint Car Champ, to run the B-main after a 5th place finish in his heat race. The North Pole Nightmare started the B-Main in the 9th position and moved up four positions to advance to the Tuscarora 50 A-main in the final transfer position. In the 50 lap finale, Bill would find his stride, running all three lanes of the Port Royal Speedway to advance +15 positions, capping his first Tuscarora 50 with an exciting eighth place finish.

“Running the B-Main really helped us, we were fast and could tell the changes we made were going in the right direction. The car was so good early in the 50 lap feature, I wanted to take care of the tires, but after the midpoint red flag the tires looked good and we were able to be more aggressive and really have some fun. I was glad we could get up in the top ten, it was disappointing to start so far back but man, that was fun.” said Balog.

The weekend of consistent finishes provided enough driver points to move Bill into 4th place in ASCoC season points standings.

“It’s been really helpful keeping the car and hauler with Matt & Kahla Miller in Pennsylvania for the last month, they’ve been great hosts. We've been able to be efficient with travel and prepare the car for the final Pennsylvania stretch of the season, it has really helped us”. said Balog, as the team continues to learn in their first season with the All Star Circuit of Champions.

In their first Tuscarora 50 the B Squared Motorsports team welcomed life-long central Pennsylvania’s Todd Olejniczak and Capital Senior Services LLC as a partner for the remainder of the season. Capital Senior Services LLC and Capital Insurance Services focus on assisting businesses and individual clients in their Life and Health Insurance needs and has been a true sprint car fan and supporter for many years.

Cox Fifth at Platinum Cup

PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking part in the Platinum Cup during the 67th Gold Cup Race of Champions, Justyn Cox was able to lock into Saturday’s feature following a turbulent preliminary night, and ultimately capped the weekend with a fifth-place finish.

“It was a lot of fun to take part in the Platinum Cup and share the stage with the Outlaws over the weekend,” Justyn Cox said. “I was really happy with how things went back in the family car after some time away from it, and have to thank Rodney, and everyone that helps us out.”

Cox took to the track on Wednesday for his preliminary night, looking to tabulate enough points to lock into the Saturday night feature event. With 30-cars checked in for the opener, Cox would time the Berco Redwood/Berry Lumber/MDW backed No. 31c entry in second fastest in his time trials group.

Racing to a win in his heat race, Cox moved into the nightly redraw where the four pill put him in the second row for the 30-lap feature event. During heat race action, Cox felt something going array on his entry, so the team went to work before pushing off for the feature.

Not getting the issue rectified, Cox would have his hands full in the main as he would slip back to eighth, it what turned into a wild race. Having some breaks go his way, Cox would keep his car in the Top-10, as he closed his night out with an eighth-place finish and sat 10th in event points.

Following Thursday’s prelim, Cox still sat 10th in points, and he was safely locked into the fifth row of Saturday night’s 30-lap feature event.

On a very racy surface on Saturday, Cox would have his elbows up as he would get his Cox Family Racing entry working through the field. Getting into fifth, Cox would pressure Corey Day for the fourth position in the closing laps but could not make anything stick.

When the checkered flag was displayed to the field, Cox capped the weekend off with a fifth-place finish.

“It was kind of a bummer having a Torsion Bar go bad on us Wednesday night because that obviously kept us from really putting together a run and earning more points,” Cox said. “With that being said, still really proud of what our team accomplished against some really strong drivers.”

The Cox Racing team would like to thank Berco Redwood, Berry Lumber, Michael David Winery, Five Window Beer Company, MDW Sports, Cranked Naturals, PM Truck Repair, Justice Brothers, K&N, Konnected, A.R.T., Sacramento Theatrical Lighting, College Cyclery, Arai, Racing Optics, All American Powder Coating, VSR, , Tim’s Hot Rod Shop, Shell Shock, Don Ott Racing Engines, and Richmond Engines for their support in 2021!

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-9, Wins-0, Top 5’s-2, Top 10’s-6

ON TAP: Cox is now idle until the Fall Nationals which take place in Chico, CA on September 30th and October 1st.

Becker Records 4th and 12th Place Finishes at Platinum Cup

PETERSEN MEDIA- Competing in the Platinum Cup 360 portion of the 67th Gold Cup with Vertullo Motorsports, Sean Becker would pick up a fourth-place finish during his preliminary night on Wednesday which locked him into Saturday’s feature where he finished 12th.

“After competing for a podium, the first night, we were confident we could improve on that during Saturday’s finale,” Sean Becker said. “Unfortunately, we just didn’t seem to have the speed to do that.”

Becker’s Gold Cup kicked off on Wednesday night where he timed the Starr Property Management/Morrison Concrete backed No. 83V mount in fourth fastest in his qualifying group.

Able to pick up a couple of positions in his heat race, ‘The Shark’ would finish second, and safely transfer into the 30-lap opening night feature event where he would look to tabulate enough points to lock into Saturday’s feature.

Taking the green flag from the ninth starting position, Becker would have his elbows up as he was able to race his way through the Top-10. With the race getting interrupted by numerous stoppages, Becker would take advantage of restarts as he raced into fourth and began battling with Joel Myers, Jr for the final spot on the podium.

Unable to get into third, Becker would cap the night off with a fourth-place finish and sat fifth in points with Thursday night’s field still to race.

Playing fan and driver coach on Thursday, Becker would find himself ninth in overall points, and with the Top-16 locking in, the Roseville, CA driver would have another night to watch as his starting position on Saturday was solidified.

Taking the green flag from ninth once Saturday’s feature went green, Becker was unable to put together a similar charge as he did on Wednesday night. Battling in the Top -10, ‘The Shark’ would lose a few positions at the end of the race as he capped his weekend off with a 12th place run.

“I really do appreciate my team and the hard work the put in over the last week,” Becker said. “We will go back to the drawing board for next time, but in the bigger picture we had a lot of fun together enjoying this great event.”

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-45, Wins-1, Top 5’s- 11, Top-10’s- 24

ON TAP: Becker will return to action on the 25th when the KWS picks back up in Hanford, CA.

Perplexing mechanical issue dampens Pokorski’s Plymouth 360 Sprint Car run

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 14, 2021 – Over the course of his 29-year career, Paul Pokorski has seen pretty much everything behind the wheel of an open-wheel race car.

However, the second-to-last Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car event of the 2021 season at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. brought along a brand new scenario for the 2014 Midwest Sprint Car Association Masters Series champion in the form of a rather mysterious gear and rear-end malfunction, which hampered the Pokorski Motorsports team’s efforts throughout the night.

With 27 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars on hand, Pokorski lined up second in the second 10-lap 360 Sprint Car heat race. Pokorski used a strong start to take the lead from polesitter Justin Erickson with a low move in turn two of the opening lap.

Pokorski proceeded to build up a sizable lead over the next few laps and appeared headed for a heat race victory and berth in the evening’s 25-lap 360 Sprint Car A-main field.

However, Pokorski suddenly slowed on lap 6 when his No. 4 machine slipped out of gear. The car continued to sputter on and off over the final four circuits as the three-time Eastern Wisconsin Stock Car Winged Super Modified champion limped home to a seventh-place finish.

After the Pokorski Motorsports crew went about addressing the issue in the pit area, Pokorski lined up ninth in the 12-lap 360 Sprint Car B main, needing to finish in the top six to move on to the A main.

Pokorski used a solid start to move into eighth during the opening lap on the lightning-fast third-mile clay oval track surface. However, the gear issue appeared again on lap 7, which forced Pokorski to pull into the infield. Pokorski’s evening ended with an 11th-place showing in the B main.

“Our car kept popping out of gear, but only once it got warm,” Pokorski said. “The strange part is it would engage on its own when I would slow down. I've never had that happen before.

“It turned out to be a disappointing night, but, hey, that’s racing,” Pokorski said. “We went back to work the day after to fix the rear end issue and some minor handling issues.”

The Pokorski Motorsports team will return to action this Saturday, Sept. 18 for a Midwest Sprint Car Association event at Gravity Park Speedway in Chilton, Wis. as part of the track’s annual Chilton Fall Classic.

Second-year 360 Sprint Car competitor Alex Pokorski will return to the seat of the No. 4 car for the event.

Racing is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m.

Sponsors and supporters for the 2021 Pokorski Motorsports team are Petersen Septic Systems, Quest Engineering Inc., Goeden Auto Body, Goodwin Racing Engines, Hopf Farms, Kettle Moraine Landscaping, Novak's Service Center, Tisler Salvage Inc., Allied Bearing Corporation, RC Custom Design and Pedal Down Promotions

The Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association joins the Casey's 410 Sprint Cars presented by Big Frig the following two nights during Championship Weekend when the A Main pays $4,000 to win on Sept. 25 and $5,000 to win on Sept. 26.

Setters Earns Two Top-Five Results During Weekend With ASCS Frontier Region

Inside Line Promotions - BILLINGS, Mont. (Sept. 14, 2021) - James Setters scored his first two top-five finishes of the season with the ASCS Frontier Region last weekend during a doubleheader in Montana.

Setters guided his family owned sprint car to a runner-up result on Friday at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade before posting a fifth-place run on Saturday at Big Sky Speedway.

"I think we did pretty good," he said. "It was definitely a lot of fun and we were proud of how the weekend went."

Setters opened the action with a heat race win on Friday at Gallatin Speedway. The performance lined him up on the outside of the front row for the main event.

"I drew good for the heat race and got a good start," he said. "I basically maintained the lead.

"In the main I started second and didn't get too good of a start. I stayed with the polesitter on the outside until turn one. Two guys got underneath me so we fell to fourth. I got (Trever) Kirkland back in turns three and four that same lap and then Phil Dietz a couple of laps later."

Setters' second-place showing tied a career best with the series.

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday at Big Sky Speedway, where Setters drew the last position in a heat race.

"We drew in the back of the first heat, but I moved up a row before the race started because someone didn't start," he said. "So technically we started third and finished third. That got us into the feature redraw and I drew the No. 8 to start the feature eighth.

"Most of my passing I did on the starts, getting underneath people in turns one and two. I got one car each restart. It was definitely nice getting a top five and at the end we were right there battling with the ASCS Frontier Region champion Logan Forler and with Tyler Driever, who finished second in points."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 10 - Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont. - Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 2 (2).

Sept. 11 - Big Sky Speedway in Billings, Mont. - Heat race: 3 (5); Feature: 5 (8).

Ramey Continuing to Learn Following First Start at Lee County Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - DONNELLSON, Iowa (Sept. 14, 2021) - Gunner Ramey joined the Sprint Invaders last Saturday night at Lee County Speedway, where he made his first career start.

Ramey entered the race riding a streak of four consecutive top 10s. The Terry Doogs Racing driver finished where he started - second - in a heat race, which narrowly missed the dash by one position.

Ramey lined up ninth of the 20 drivers to make the feature and he spent much of the race mired in the middle of the field. Ramey, along with most of the other competitors, ran the top line next to the guardrail and a razor-thin cushion with little opportunity to make passes.

"The track was super slick all night," he said. "We had to rip the top and bounce the car off the guardrail in turns one and two."

Ramey wound up 11th during a performance he said should have been better.

"I definitely need to drive the car harder and find the limit without crashing and tearing up our equipment," he said. "I wasn't racing the track how I needed to be as a driver."

The night also emphasized how key starting position is, particularly on tricky tracks.

"If I had gotten one more position in the heat race that would've put us in the dash and from there within the first few rows to start the feature," he said. "It's really hard to win races outside the first few rows and starting mid-pack just makes it even tougher."

Ramey will have a short turnaround and an opportunity to put the knowledge to the test again this week at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., as he is slated to run the 11th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this Thursday through Saturday with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour and ASCS Warrior Region.

It will mark the third time Ramey has competed in the Hockett/McMillin Memorial and the second behind the wheel of the No. 21 winged sprint car. His first start came in a non-winged sprint car.

"I'm really hoping the third time's the charm," he said. "This track has haunted me a little bit in the past. We've always had some sort of bad luck to where we don't get to show what we have. I've known the Hockett's all my life and grew up going to this race as a spectator every year. To do it now as a driver is really special and I hope we can put on a good show for all the friends and family that are going to be there."

The event also marks an important weekend for points. Ramey trails Austin O'Neal by one point in the ASCS Warrior Region championship standings with just four races remaining.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 11 - Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa - Heat race: 2 (2); Feature: 11 (9).

Driever produced a solid weekend in Montana during the final two rounds of the ASCS Frontier Region season, beginning on Friday when he advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race and from sixth to fifth place in the main event at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade.

"It rained right before our heat so the track was one lane and no one did much passing at all," he said. "Going into the main event we only had one race between our heat race and the main event so the track was the same deal. It was stomp and steer with little to no passing."

Driever made the most of the situation for his 10th top five of the season.

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Big Sky Speedway, where he placed second in a heat race.

"Our car was pretty locked down in the heat race, but Logan (Forler) got me there in the end to win it," he said. "We drew the No. 7 in the feature redraw to line up seventh. We made some passes pretty quickly. I was up to third after Logan spun, but he got me again toward the end so we finished fourth. I was happy with our run."

Driever will take the next month off before wrapping up his season Oct. 21-23 at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif., during the Trophy Cup.

Hagar Captures Ralph Henson Memorial at I-30 Speedway for Third Time

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Sept. 14, 2021) - Derek Hagar became the first three-time winner of the Ralph Henson Memorial thanks to a strong showing at I-30 Speedway last Saturday.

Hagar was victorious nearly every time he hit the track during the 14 th edition of the marquee ASCS Mid-South Region event.

"We had a good car and started third in the heat race," he said. "We got by Marshall (Skinner) for the lead about three laps into it and won the heat race, which put us third in points. I drew the No. 4 for the pole shuffle. I was able to knock the top three cars out and get the pole position for the feature, which was key because the track took rubber in the 305 race. I just knew I needed to hit my marks and save my tires."

Hagar placed fifth in the Race of Champions that was held midway through the show.

"I didn't want to tip off anything so I just played it safe," he said. "The biggest focus was on winning the feature."

Hagar made the most out of lining up on the pole for the 25-lap feature.

"We led the distance," he said. "On the last lap I got bottled up behind a lapped car. Jordon (Mallett) showed me his nose going into turn three, but I was able to get by the lapped car. I moved my corner up anticipating the lapped car moving up. I was able to squirt by him and get some breathing room coming to the checkered.

"We were hit with a lot of bad news last Wednesday. The Wilson's are a big part of our family so to go out there and get a win for them and take Jacob to Victory Lane with us was special. There were some tears shed and laughter in Victory Lane. We put a sticker on the side of the hood and I made sure that wasn't covered up. Jacob was there with us and helping us get that win."

Hagar is aiming to continue his momentum this Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., during the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. He won the winged event in 2014 and swept the weekend in non-wing competition in 2015.

Hill Eager to Compete at Hockett/McMillin Memorial This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - SIX NATIONS, Ontario, Canada (Sept. 14, 2021) - Alex Hill is looking forward to returning to competition during the three-day Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial hosted by Lucas Oil Speedway beginning Thursday.

"I'm really excited to get back in the car, especially at Lucas Oil Speedway," Hill said of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event in Wheatland, Mo. "It's one of my favorite tracks."

Hill will be looking to improve on her performance at last year's event when she fell just a few positions short of making the Saturday night A Main. After being hampered by a slow start on the opening night, the Hill's Racing Team driver was able to move forward in each of her final four races of the event.

"We did pretty well there last year once we got going," she said. "Things had changed a little since we had last raced there and it took us a little while to get comfortable with the car and track. That got us a little behind at the beginning, but we got better pretty much each time we raced."

Hill has shown speed in most of her recent competitions and she's hoping to carry that into the marquee sprint car event, which drew nearly 80 competitors last year.

"We've shown improvement this year and I'm hoping that will continue this weekend," she said.

Dover Posts Best ASCS National Tour Result in Nearly Five Years

Inside Line Promotions - GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 14, 2021) - Jack Dover recorded his best Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour feature finish since October 2016 last Friday at I-80 Speedway.

Dover garnered a runner-up result during the Bobby Parker Memorial, which kicked off a doubleheader at his home track.

"We had two heat races," he said. "I started in the back (ninth) of the first heat race and got up to fourth. In the second heat we started second and we won that. Come feature-time we started third. The track was pretty good and everybody was really fast. We rode around and once we burned some fuel off the car got really good. Around Lap 20 we were doing slide jobs with Chris Martin for second. I was finally able to get by him with three laps to go. I was 3.1 seconds behind the leader and at the checkered flag we were only two seconds behind so we were really good.

"Obviously our goal every time we go out is to win, but to come out second against the caliber of cars that were there, we were really pleased."

Dover's second-place showing was his 24th top five of the season and his best run with the ASCS National Tour since a runner-up result on Oct. 1, 2016, at I-80 Speedway.

He returned to the track on Saturday for the Casey's Midwest Fall Brawl. A charge from seventh to fourth place in a heat race ranked Dover ninth in points.

"We were really close to getting the third-place car, but came up a lap or two short," he said. "That put us ninth in points and we just missed the feature redraw by one. Early on in the feature we were running seventh. About Lap 5 my quick change gear in the rear end broke so that ended the race for us."

Dover was in contention for at least a top 10 prior to the race-ending problem that relegated him to a 22nd-place result.

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

"We're always like a seventh to 10th-place car," he said. "As much as we've learned I feel we have a good shot at running in the top five. I'm feeling really good going into this weekend."

Sept. 10 - I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. - Heat race #1: 4 (9); Heat race #2: 1 (2); Feature: 2 (3).

Sides Closing California Swing With Race at Keller Auto Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - CHICO, Calif. (Sept. 14, 2021) - Jason Sides wraps up his first visit to California in two years this weekend with a race at Keller Auto Speedway.

The dirt oval in Hanford hosts the Tom Tarlton Classic on Saturday before the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series returns east.

"I'm looking forward to it," he said. "I know Peter (Murphy) has been doing a good job at that track. I've watched a few races online. We want to get in and out of there with a clean night. A top 10 would be nice."

Sides last competed at the track in March 2019. He charged from 23 rd to sixth during his previous appearance at Keller Auto Speedway in March 2017.

Sides competed at the Gold Cup Race of Champions last weekend at Silver Dollar Speedway, where he advanced forward both nights to finish 19 th in the A Main.

"Qualifying put us behind both nights," he said. "The first day the track was greasy and started going slick really quick with a big curb. The second night I tiptoed when the sun was peaking through. I really couldn't see where to enter. Not qualifying well just puts you in the back of the heat and it's an uphill climb the rest of the night."

Sides qualified 24th quickest and gained a spot in a heat race to place fifth, which locked him into the main event on Friday. He picked up one position in the feature to end 19th.

The next night began with the 29th quickest qualifying time. Sides maneuvered from eighth to seventh in a heat race, from fifth to second in the Last Chance Showdown and from 22nd to 19 th in the main event.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 10 - Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif. - Qualifying: 24; Heat race: 5 (6); Feature: 19 (20).

Dominic Scelzi Produces Strong Week of Racing During Gold Cup

Inside Line Promotions - CHICO, Calif. (Sept. 14, 2021) - Dominic Scelzi earned a pair of top-five results during 360ci winged sprint car competition and a seventh-place showing with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series last week at Silver Dollar Speedway, which hosted the Gold Cup Race of Champions.

Scelzi competed at the quarter-mile oval during four straight nights beginning Wednesday with the first of two 360 sprint car shows. He set quick time during qualifying before advancing from fourth to third place in a heat race. That lined him up on the inside of the fourth row for the main event.

"We qualified good and ran good in the heat," he said. "In the main event we were trying to change some stuff to get us better when the track is rough like that. We ended up hitting a hole and went off the track. We weren't able to recover so I pulled off."

Scelzi was credited with a 20th-place result. However, he was able to use Thursday's program as a mulligan.

"We rebounded decent," he said. "We were third quick in qualifying and won the heat race. In the feature we started seventh and got to second. We tried to pass for the lead, but we fell back to third and then a caution came out. We got back to second twice, but yellows negated the pass each time. Late in the race I found the rubber and was right on first and second. We had a yellow with two laps to go and I had burned my tires off so we fell back to fifth."

The fifth-place result was the 40th top five of the season for Scelzi and it locked him into the 360 A Main on Saturday.

In the meantime, Scelzi raced with the World of Outlaws on Friday. He timed in 21st quickest and placed fifth in a heat race to advance into the main event.

"We started off really bad in qualifying and weren't much better in the heat race, but we made it through," he said. "Then we were phenomenal in the feature. We changed some stuff with the balance and I felt really good. I felt like we were a top-five car so that was super good."

Scelzi hustled from 17th to seventh to garner his first top 10 of the season with the World of Outlaws.

The event finale on Saturday featured another stellar run in 360 competition as Scelzi maneuvered from seventh to second in the main event.

"Our car was really good and the race track was outstanding," he said. "I knew we had the best car and I felt I did everything right. You can't scrub speed or get over the cushion. You can't burn your tires off. We ran the leader down in traffic and the yellow came out when I felt it was going to be where the race was won or lost. We only had about five laps to go. I did everything I could to get by him. We slid him for the lead on the last corner and just wasn't able to clear him."

The night also showcased Scelzi making the World of Outlaws main event. He qualified 10th quickest, placed third in a heat race and ended the night 15th in the feature after battling for a top 10 for most of the race.

"We qualified good and were pretty good in the heat race," he said. "I felt we'd be really good in the main event. I felt like the cards were aligning. They reworked the track and we felt it'd go back to what it was. It stayed fast for 25 laps. We were too tight and I burned my tires off. Once the track went away I was floundering. I had used up my tires and we were just hanging on."

Next up for Scelzi is the Tom Tarlton Classic this Saturday at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, Calif.

Gravel Guides Big Game Motorsports to Victory Lane During Gold Cup Opener

Inside Line Promotions - CHICO, Calif. (Sept. 14, 2021) - David Gravel earned his first career feature victory at Silver Dollar Speedway last Friday during the Gold Cup Race of Champions opener.

It marked the 12th win of the season for Big Game Motorsports and the ninth during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition.

The night began with Gravel qualifying sixth quickest. A runner-up result in a heat race locked him into the dash. Although Gravel pulled the second-highest number - seven - he moved forward two positions in the dash to garner the fifth starting position in the 35-lap A Main.

"I was happy to be in the dash and be in the hunt," he said. "Getting that extra shot at the race track is huge to be able to figure out our car. We felt we were pretty good in the dash and we fine-tuned it for the feature. We had a pretty educated guess."

Gravel used the bottom of the track to his advantage and took the lead on Lap 17. He held onto the top spot throughout traffic and a late restart en route to his 67th career World of Outlaws win.

"I knew there was grip down there," he said. "I just stayed patient. I felt it'd get better. I was able to get rolling in traffic. Those guys were up the track and I had the bottom to myself. I was in fifth and then in fourth and before you know it was in the lead. It's cool how it worked out. I was the most patient to run the bottom in turns three and four and it paid off for me."

The event wrapped up on Saturday. Gravel timed in 11th quickest. A third-place result in a heat race gave him the 11th starting position into the main event. He battled just outside of the top 10 throughout the feature before ending 12th.

"It seemed like the track got faster and faster in qualifying," he said. "We had to start in the second row in the heat race and weren't able to get in the dash from there. There were more laps on the track and they did a full rework on the track before the feature. We were guessing on what to do with the car and just missed it a little. I felt we had a shot for a top 10, but after a caution there with 10 or 12 laps to go it wasn't the same car and really fell off for whatever reason."

The Tom Tarlton Classic is next for Gravel as Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, Calif., hosts the event this Saturday. Gravel won the most recent World of Outlaws race at the track in March 2019.

"I like Hanford," he said. "It's probably my favorite California track. I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully we can qualify good and get a good night in."

Kaleb Johnson Posts Podium Performance at Jerry Richert Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (Sept 13, 2021) - A third-place finish at the 21st annual Jerry Richert Memorial last Saturday continued a string of top runs at Cedar Lake Speedway for Kaleb Johnson.

"We had a pretty good night," he said. "For whatever reason, we've always done well at Cedar Lake. This was our fourth time there with our own car and it was our worst finish. We finished second the other three times. I really enjoy racing there."

Advancing from his fourth starting position in his heat race was key to Johnson's eventual podium finish in the main event.

"We were able to move up to second in our heat race, which gave us enough passing points to qualify for the feature redraw and one of my crew guys drew the No. 2," he said.

Johnson started on the front row alongside Chris Graf while veteran Brooke Tatnell lined up third.

"I spun my tires really bad on the start and I dropped to third behind Chris and Brooke going into the first turn," he said. "I eventually had a pretty good race with Brooke for a while before we let Justin Henderson sneak by us.

"I got by Chris later for third and stayed behind Brooke by about half a straightaway for the last part of the race. It was a pretty good race for us, but I made a couple of mistakes that I wish I could have back."

Johnson raced approximately six-and-a-half hours away at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., the previous night during the Bobby Parker Memorial with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

"The surface at I-80 was kind of weird," he said. "It never really slicked off for some reason. It was mainly hammer-down around the top for most of the night. The format had us running two heat races. We went from sixth to third in the first one, but dropped a spot from fourth to fifth in the second. They used combined passing points for those two races to line up the feature and we started 13th.

"We got up to ninth after passing Carson McCarl on the bottom with about five or six laps to go, but I stayed down there too long and Carson got back by me along with another car. We finished 11th, which wasn't great, but it was better than our other two times there this year when we didn't finish."

Johnson will race with the ASCS National Tour again on Tuesday at Clay County Fair Speedway in Spencer, Iowa - a track where he had success in his 305ci sprint car - before moving on to the Rapid Nationals at Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa, this Saturday.

"We've raced in Spencer a few times before - once in a 360 and the other times in a 305," he said. "We've always done all right there. Spencer is where I won my last race in a 305 three years ago.

"We've raced twice at Rocky this year and finished second and third. We're hoping to improve on that a bit."

Sept. 10 - I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. - Heat race #1: 3 (6); Heat race #2: 5 (4); Feature: 11 (13).

Williamson Focusing on Taking Next Step Forward at Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - COLUMBIA, Mo. (Sept. 13, 2021) - Garet Williamson is riding a wave of confidence into the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this weekend.

The Bryant Paver Motorsports driver is refreshed after taking last weekend off and rejuvenated following a pair of podium finishes the previous weekend. Next up is one of the biggest Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour events in his home state as Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., hosts the spectacle this Thursday through Saturday.

"I wouldn't say we've totally struggled there, but we haven't had a good starting spot and been up front and been a contender," he said. "The last couple of weeks we've shown speed and built confidence so I'm looking forward to seeing how this weekend goes."

Williamson posted a 12th-place result during a preliminary night of the event last year before he finished 15th during the finale.

"Normally we've been good around the top and the bottom hasn't been too good the last couple of years I've been there," he said. "The track races really different compared to everything else. You have to be up front early so you can be there at the end."

Williamson said his goal is to not only improve on his career-best 12 th-place result at the track, he is aiming to finish much closer to the front.

"I think it'd be nice to run in the top five Saturday night if not be on the podium," he said. "We have the car to do it and I'm confident we can be a contender."

Tanner Carrick Impresses with World of Outlaws at Gold Cup Race of Champions

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night in Chico, CA, Tanner Carrick’s star was shining bright as he went toe-to-toe with the best drivers in the World during the Gold Cup Race of Champions feature event. Carrick found himself out front and pulling away until a safety issue with his fuel cell forced him to relinquish the lead on the 25th lap.

“Saturday night we were in a really good position to possibly get an Outlaw win, but we had a little misfortune with our fuel cell that Outlaw officials ultimately deemed unsafe, and it took us out of the lead,” Tanner Carrick said. “I really have to thank all of the people that work on this car for the gains we have made with our 410 program the last few nights.”

Saturday night, Carrick got off to a great start with ‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’ as he timed the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83t machine in 4th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, the Lincoln, CA driver would pick up a second-place finish to Brad Sweet, and he would safely transfer into the 40-lap Gold Cup feature event, and also earned a berth in the all-important DirtVision Fast Pass Dash.

Continuing to show speed in front of the capacity crowd, Carrick would pick up a fourth-place finish and find himself in the second row to kick off the feature event in what was only his third start with the series. Running fourth in the opening stanzas of the event, Carrick would get rolling as he forged his way into the lead on the eighth circuit as he carried a ton of speed through turns one and two.

Just past the halfway point, Carrick would find himself in a torrid battle with Brad Sweet for the top spot as they raced through traffic, but he was able to keep Sweet and then Logan Schuchart at bay until the caution flag waived on the 25th lap.

Under the stoppage, officials directed Carrick to stop on the back stretch to inspect his fuel cell. They deemed the cell too loose and directed him to the work area for a safety issue and forced him to give up the race lead with 15 laps left in the event. Carrick would not return.

“We had a ton of speed, and they definitely knew we were a factor,” Carrick said. “I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of their support. It really means a lot, and I can’t wait to try again against the Outlaws.”

Carrick was also in action on Friday night with the World of Outlaws to open up the two-day extravaganza.

Getting off to a tough start in time trials, Carrick timed in 22nd fastest before a very strong effort in his heat race saw him work into the fourth position and transfer directly into the feature event.

Lining up 14th, Carrick would work his way forward on a very racy surfacy that was provided by Silver Dollar Speedway officials. Work his way up to sixth, Carrick would make a move to crack the Top-5, but a yellow would negate his pass.

The ensuing restart saw Carrick make slight contact with the front stretch wall, but the impact was enough to knock his Jacob’s Ladder down and made the final laps tricky.

Carrick would salvage the event with an 11th place finish.

Last Wednesday night, Carrick kicked off the Gold Cup Race of Champions as he checked in for 360ci action. Timing in fourth fastest in his group, Carrick would line up in the second row of his heat race.

Racing to a third-place finish, the Lincoln, CA product would move into the opening night feature event where he took the green flag from the 12th starting spot.

Working his way towards the front and looking to earn enough event points to lock into Saturday’s feature event, Carrick would slice and dice his way up to sixth. Looking to get into the Top-5, Carrick would trip up on a rut in turns one and two that resulted in him getting upside down as he ended Wednesday night with a 14th place finish.

“It was a good week of racing, and fun to get in three nights in Chico, CA,” Carrick said. “Big thanks to everyone who continues to support our racing program.”

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: 54, Wins: 6, Top 5’s: 24, Top 10’s: 31

ON TAP: At the time of press, Carrick’s next event is TBD.
