Hagar Earns Runner-Up Result at Riverside International Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (Oct. 21, 2020) - Derek Hagar recorded his 12th podium finish of the season last Saturday at Riverside International Speedway where he piloted a 305ci winged sprint car for Todd Bradford during the Jimmy Huffman Memorial.

"Todd is a good friend and a good customer," he said. "He was on vacation last week and asked if I'd drive his car. We got it ready for the weekend. He has nice equipment and it was an honor to drive for him and give him a good top-five finish."

Hagar began the night by advancing from his third starting position to a runner-up result during a heat race.

"We had some issues with the motor not wanting to run when it was cold," he said. "We got passed and fell to fifth in the heat race. Then we worked our way back to second. They don't do passing points so that put us starting eighth in the feature.

"We made quick work and got to fourth quickly. We kept having cautions and finally had a long run. We got to second with about five laps to go. The leader, Howard Moore, was gone. I'm not sure we had anything for him with a yellow, but I wish we had clean track quicker. I felt like I started to run him down with a handful of laps to go, but we ran out of time."

Hagar's second-place showing was his fourth runner-up result of the season.

He plans on taking this weekend off before wrapping up the season at Riverside International Speedway during the 12th annual USCS Flip Flop 50 and USCS Fall Nationals on Oct. 30-31 with the USCS Series.

Late Incident Relegates Blake Carrick to 13th Place Finish at Ocean Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Having a good night going at Ocean Speedway on Saturday night during the Johnny Key Classic, a late incident would leave Blake Carrick with nowhere to go and relegated him to a 13th place finish.

“We had a really good night going,” Blake Carrick said. “Unfortunately on a late restart, a car got out of shape in front of me and I had nowhere to go. It cost us several spots we ended up finishing 13th.”

A total of 48 cars checked in for the long-standing event, and Carrick got off to a very strong start as he timed the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 38B entry in third quickest in qualifying time trials.

Gridding the field from the fourth starting position in his heat race, the Lincoln, CA driver would slip back to finish fifth, which forced him into one of the night’s twin ‘B’ Main events.

Picking up the win during his semi, Carrick would get his qualiyifng time back behind the Dash cars and rolled off the starting grid from the 10th position for the 35-lap feature event.

With the surface turning extremely slick for the feature event, Carrick would actually fall outside of the Top-10 in the early goings before settling into a groove and working his way back forward.

Working back into the Top-10 and up to the seventh position, rubber would start to go down on the track. Continuing to run in the seventh position, Carrick’s night would get shaken up during a late restart.

With a car getting out of shape in front of him, Carrick would be in the wrong place at the wrong time and it would actually cost him several positions as he fell back to finish 13th.

“It was a bummer to lose a Top-10 like that because we were better than a 13th place car,” Carrick said. “Fun night, and thank you to all the people who work this car and make this all possible.”

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 is scheduled to return to action on October 30th in Hanford, CA for the Tom Tarlton Classic.

KCP Racing and Gio Scelzi Bring 2020 Season to Close with Tough Two Night Swing in the Midwest

PETERSEN MEDIA- With Gio Scelzi having other commitments the next couple of weekends, the trip to Lakeside Speedway and Lake Ozark Speedway marked the end of the 2020 Campaign for Scelzi and KCP Racing.

“It certainly was not our weekend and was a really tough way to end our season,” Scelzi said. “In the few months we were able to race together, we got a ton better and it has us all very excited to go through the off season and come out strong in 2021.”

Friday night’s penultimate night in 2020 for the team saw them check in at Lakeside Speedway where Scelzi would time the Logan Contractors Supply, Inc./Aspen Aire/Royal Flooring backed No. 18 machine in 10th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Slipping back to a fifth-place finish in his heat race, Scelzi would move into the feature event where he would take the green flag from the 18th starting position.

Scelzi would have a short night however, as the Fresno, CA driver would get caught up in a wreck and it would lead to a broken rear axle.

Bouncing back and heading to Eldon, MO to take part in the Jason Johnson Classic on Saturday night at Lake Ozark Speedway, Scelzi would get off to a quick start as he timed in fourth fastest in time trials, and finished second in his heat race.

Making his way into the DirtVision Fast Pass Dash, Scelzi would pick up a third-place finish, putting him in the second row of the 41-lap feature event.

Running inside the Top-Five during the early goings of the race, contact with another car would ensue when the field was firing back up after a red flag. Contact would result in front wing damage for Scelzi and it would change the handling of his machine.

Doing all he could to hang on to a top five, Scelzi would slip back to sixth before contact from another car caused front end damage, that led to another car getting into a slowing Scelzi and bringing his night to another early end.

“Saturday night I made a really stupid mistake that cost us a chance at a top-five, and led to us being in a bad spot that ended our night early,” Scelzi added. “Not the ideal way to end our season, but I am really excited to get to work this offseason with the KCP Racing team.”

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-28, Wins-0, Top-5’s- 9, Top 10’s-13

ON TAP: Scelzi and KCP Racing have concluded their 2020 season.

Paul Nienhiser Lands Double-Duty Ride for Saturday’s Fall Fling at Kokomo Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Though he thought his 2020 season was complete, Paul Nienhiser will be in action this Saturday at Kokomo Speedway compete in both a Non-Wing Sprint Car as well as a winged 410ci car as a teammate to Chase Stockon in a second KO Motorsports entry.

“I really thought my season was over and was disappointed in how it ended with a rough night in Scott Bonar’s car,” Paul Nienhiser. “Then, earlier this week I received a phone call from KO Motorsports’ Kent Schmidt, and they wanted to run a second car at Kokomo this weekend in both divisions. I jumped at the opportunity, and I am really excited for Kokomo.”

2020 has been a strange year for drivers across the country, Nienhiser included. The Chapin, IL driver has still managed to compete in 32 races and win five feature events, and has also been able to shed the wings on a pair of occasions and find success.

While running his own equipment in non-wing action to date, Nienhiser is eager for the opportunity to jump into the KO Motorsports seat as their main focus over the last two years has been non-winged racing.

“I am beyond excited for this opportunity,” Nienhiser said. “I have a ton of winged laps under my belt so I am hoping that we run well with the Outlaws, but I am just as excited to log some laps with a non-wing team and see how I stack up, and see what I can learn from these guys.”

Based out of Southern, IN KO Motorsports was formed two years ago by Kent Schmidt, Brian Davis, and Tom Davis. As a group that likes to get together and race for fun 2020 saw Chase Stockon join the team full time as they compete with the USAC National Sprint Car Series, and claimed the Sprint Week Championship.

KO Motorsports would like to thank Hutson John Deere, Davis Brothers, Engler Machine and Tool, and LST Shocks for their continued support.

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

2020 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-32, Wins-5, Top 5’s-12, Top 10’s-18

ON TAP: Nienhiser will pilot two KO Motorsports entries at Kokomo Speedway on Saturday night.

Becker and Van Lare Motorsports 12th at Key Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA- After August’s original Johnny Key Classic date was pushed back due to wildfires in the area, Sean Becker and Van Lare Motorsports made their way to Ocean Speedway on Saturday night for the makeup date where ‘The Shark’ would record a 12th place finish during the 35-lap feature event.

“Unfortunately, we really just struggled all night long,” Sean Becker said. “But I have the confidence that Jim Van Lare will have this team performing like it should as the season begins to come to a close.”

A total of 48 winged 360’s checked in for the 60th running of the event, and Becker would get the Pro Aggregate/All About Fire Protection/Bianchi Farms backed No. 5v timed in 26th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Racing to a fifth-place finish in heat race action, the Roseville, CA driver would find himself in one of the twin “B” mains for one final shot to punch his ticket into the 35-lap Johnny Key Classic finale.

Able to finish in the second position behind DJ Netto, Becker would indeed earn the transfer into the finale where he would roll off the starting grid from the 19th starting position.

As the night moved along, the once hooked up Ocean Speedway surface had turned extremely slick for the feature event and would eventually turn abrasive and take rubber.

Coming from the back of the pack, the veteran driver knew the importance of making up ground early as the inevitable rubber would ultimately put a stoppage in passing.

When the race came to life, Becker would have a hard time getting going as he was mired in traffic with drivers jockeying for position on the slippery surface.

Running back in 20th for the first 10-laps, Becker would start to make some headway around the race’s halfway point as he jumped into the 15th position by the 20th lap.

Why he would slip back to 18th for a lap, Becker would actually get stronger as he was able to find the rubber before some of the other drivers and jumped back up to the 14th position, and then took over 12th with just four laps left in the race.

Chasing after the Top-10, Becker would be unable to catch them, though would just narrowly miss out on the 11th spot at the finish line.

Becker and Van Lare Motorsports would like to thank Pro Aggregate, All About Fire Protection, Bianchi Farms, Shark Racing Engines, CCI, Van Lare Steering Repair, and Triple X Race Co. for their support in 2020.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-33, Wins-4, Top 5’s- 15, Top-10’s- 19

ON TAP: Becker will be back in action on Friday October 30th in Hanford, CA in the Monhoff Racing entry, and then on Saturday October 31st in Marysville, CA in the Van Lare Motorsports car.

We'll also find out why he's hoping to give a big ole smooch to our announcer this Saturday!

As usual we start off our show with a much healthier Frank Buhrman who opens this action-packed version of the podcast with his RaceSaver roundup.

Hill Wraps Up Season Fighting Misfortune at Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Oct. 20, 2020) - A challenging track and some misfortune kept Alex Hill from enjoying a more successful weekend than she aimed to produce with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour during the 47th annual Winter Nationals hosted by Devil's Bowl Speedway.

"It wasn't bad, but it could've been a lot better," Hill said regarding her final racing weekend of the year. "The track was heavy and hammer-down both nights, making it really difficult to pass. That made drawing well more important than usual.

"The first night we drew well, but had an issue with the car. We got that fixed the second night, but we had a bad draw."

Hill started second and finished in that position during her heat race on Friday night, which placed her 11th on the A Main starting grid.

"I got the lead in the heat race, but lost it when I got into the slop on the frontstretch and finished second," she said. "I was running pretty well in the feature for the first few laps and then the car felt like it was down on the right rear tire and it was really uncomfortable to drive. There was a caution after about seven laps and I pulled in because I thought something on the car was broke.

"My crew couldn't find anything wrong and I restarted in the back. It didn't get any better and I pulled in when I got lapped. My crew changed the rear bars after the race and it was fine on Saturday."

Saturday night also presented frustration for Hill. While there were no issues with her car, she had a poor draw, which mired her deep in the field.

"We had a bad draw and that kind of set the tone for the night," said Hill, who started in the last row in her heat race. "Like Friday, the track was one-lane again and it was difficult to move forward in the heat. That started us pretty deep in the B Main. We were able to pass some cars in the B Main after starting ninth, but once I got to fifth the rest of the cars were a ways in front of me and strung out so that was where we finished.

"It wasn't the way we had hoped to finish our season, but you have nights like that when things go against you."

Hill used a provisional to tag the rear of the field in the feature and she pulled in early. She was credited with an 11th-place showing in the ASCS National Tour championship standings for the second straight year.

Sams III Secures 10th in ASCS National Tour Standings After Solid Performance During Winter Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Oct. 20, 2020) - Danny Sams III saved the best for last.

The Sams LaMountain Racing driver produced his most complete weekend of the season with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour during the final doubleheader of the year last Friday and Saturday when Devil's Bowl Speedway hosted the 47th annual Winter Nationals.

Sams III hustled from 20th to 14th on Friday before he claimed a 15th-place result on Saturday. It marked his first time this season with back to back top 15s during ASCS National Tour competition. The weekend also boosted him to a 10th-place finish in the championship standings.

"The weekend went really good," he said. "We were sitting 11th in points rolling in. We did everything we needed to do to lock into the top 10, which was our goal to heading into the season.

"We were good the first time we showed up to Devil's Bowl last year and we built off of that. We had a better weekend this time."

Sams III picked up two positions in a heat race Friday to place fourth. A runner-up result in a B Main earned a transfer into the main event. Sams III continued to pass cars in the feature, driving from 20th to 14th.

"I think we had a top-10 car," he said. "With the cautions and lapped cars moving around it slowed us down, but we were happy with the progress we made. I was one of the only cars running the bottom in turns three and four. I was able to hook it. Most people were running around the top and it was a longer way around. I went to the top when I needed, but the bottom worked for us."

Sams III backed up the strong outing on Saturday when he finished third in a heat race and 15th in the A Main.

"I was supposed to start fourth in the heat race, but the driver starting second didn't make it so I moved up a row," he said. "I wasn't in the preferred line and lost a spot right away, but I held onto third and it was good enough to lock us into the feature.

"I was up to 12th at one time in the feature and got pushed up in the middle and lost my ground. It was a racing deal. Overall, I was happy to gain a spot and we learned a lot."

The 15th-place result was the eighth of the season for Sams III.

The team will take the next two weekends off before racing on Nov. 6-7 at Hendry County Motorsports Park in Clewiston, Fla., with the USCS Series.

SawBlade.com Backed Carney II Posts Sixth-Place Result During Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Oct. 20, 2020) - John Carney II highlighted the 47th annual Winter Nationals with a top-10 performance last Friday at Devil's Bowl Speedway.

The SawBlade.com Xiphos saw blade and Burkham Contracting sponsored driver piloted a sprint car for Scott Brown during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour's two-day event. It began on a positive note for Carney II, who advanced from fifth to third place in a heat race. Carney II ranked ninth in overall points following the heat race, which narrowly missed the feature redraw and lined him up on the inside of the fifth row for the A Main.

"Friday night went well," he said. "We just missed the feature redraw by one spot and that was important. We were a pretty decent car, but not quite fast enough to pass people. We picked up a few spots and we had an idea of what to do the next night."

Carney II earned a sixth-place showing. He started in a similar position on Saturday, lining up fifth in a heat race. This time he gained one position and that put him one spot out of locking into the main event. Carney II started on the pole of the first B Main and a runner-up result locked him into the A Main. He advanced several positions before ending 16 th.

"The track was way different," he said. "It was greasy and slick through the first couple of heat races. On the start I was stuck behind a guy and by the time I got around him I didn't pass enough cars. They had some wrecks in other heats with cars in the front so the points got shuffled a lot and that made us run a B Main.

"In the feature I drove up to about 10th and was rolling real good, but we had some mechanical problems toward the end of the race that slowed us down. The weekend wasn't that bad. We didn't tear anything up. That should make the offseason pretty easy."

Dover Scores Two Top Fives at Devil's Bowl During Winter Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Oct. 20, 2020) - Jack Dover was consistent throughout the 47th annual Winter Nationals last weekend at Devil's Bowl Speedway.

Dover delivered a top-five outing each night during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour season finale, giving him 21 top fives in 29 races this year.

The two-day show began on Friday with Dover winning a heat race after lining up on the outside of the front row. That earned a spot into the feature redraw and Dover pulled the No. 2 to garner the front row for the A Main.

"We went out and won our heat race by five seconds so I knew we were pretty good," he said. "It's hard to judge because we started out front. We redrew the No. 2 for the feature. With Sam Hafertepe Jr. starting on the front it wasn't going to be easy. I figured I'd ride in second and catch him in traffic. It never came to that. We had a late restart and Scott Bogucki was able to get by us on the bottom in turns three and four.

"I was very pleased to run third with those guys considering we hardly run with them. I felt like my car needed some adjustments and a gear change. We did that the next night and the car was way better."

The third-place effort was the best of the season during ASCS National Tour action for Dover. It also marked his 16th podium of the year.

The stout weekend wrapped up on Saturday with Dover maneuvering from fourth to third place in a heat race. That lined him up on the outside of the seventh row for the main event and he charged forward 10 positions to end fourth. It was the second-most positions gained by any driver in the feature.

"They gave us a really good track both nights," he said. "It was a little too good. There wasn't much passing and everybody was fast in the heat race. We got by one car and were all over second place, but the track wasn't wide enough to make a move on them.

"The track widened out for the feature. If you could hit the bottom good it had a really good groove. The top was good as well so there were two lanes of racing. I picked them off one by one. I ran up top and the bottom. We slowly worked our way up there. To get as far forward as we moved without any yellows was impressive. We're definitely going to take those notes for when we go back there."

Oct. 16 - Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas - Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 3 (2).

Come to the Keystone for $5
 

Port Royal Speedway has declared Saturday “Fan Appreciation Day” with adult general admission for the biggest PA Sprint Series IMCA/RaceSaver race of the year, the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge, lowered to only $5. Under 13 is free. Pit Pass is $30.

“This is an unbelievable gesture by the Fair Board, Steve O’Neal and everybody at Port Royal Speedway,” PASS Director Rod Ort said. “We hope race fans will take advantage of the speedway’s generosity and come out to see some of the best sprint car racing of the year.”

Last year’s race featured a three-way battle for the lead with eventual winner “Nitro Nick” Sweigart sweeping from third to first in the second turn of the last lap, then holding off a challenge from “Zach Daddy” Newlin to score a narrow win. Not to be outdone, the Founders Cup race for non-qualifiers saw Kassidy Kreitz take the victory in a side-by-side finish with Drew Ritchey.

“We can’t guarantee that every year,” Ort said, “but we’ve had plenty of nail-biters this season, and with 50-60 cars expected, the quality of the starting field will certainly make it possible.”

Recognizing the weather changes possible late in the season, gates for the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge will open at noon, with racing scheduled to begin at 3:00 p.m. Limited late models and 4-cylinder pure stocks also will be part of the program.

Crockett Captures ASCS National Tour Season Finale to Extend Winning Streak to 25 Years

Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Oct. 20, 2020) - Roger Crockett released a huge sigh of relief in Victory Lane on Saturday when Devil's Bowl Speedway hosted the 47th annual Winter Nationals.

Crockett captured the marquee Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event for the second straight year, which marked his first win of the season and 10 th career with the series. That also extended his winning streak to 25 consecutive years dating back to 1996 - Crockett's second season racing a sprint car.

"It's a huge relief to finally win," he said. "It wasn't unexpected, but after we'd been so close at some big races it was like we finally did it. I never thought it'd be such a relief to win a race. It's easy to be spoiled when you've been fortunate to win a lot of races."

Crockett kicked off the final doubleheader of the ASCS National Tour season on Friday when he placed fourth in a heat race, won a B Main and advanced from 17th to 12th in the main event.

"I got a very bad start in the heat race and missed the bottom in turn one," he said. "We lost spots and just weren't great. We started in the front of the B Main. Our lap times were extremely good out in clean air, but as soon as we got in traffic again starting deep in the A Main we were not good."

Crockett changed a couple of parts for the finale on Saturday and it paid off. He advanced from fourth to second place in a heat race. He made the feature redraw and Crockett got the No. 2 to line up on the outside of the front row for the 30-lap main event.

"I got a really good start and darn near got away with the win in the heat," he said. "Then we got the good redraw and the jump early in the feature. Our car was really, really good. I came upon two lapped cars battling each other. One of them went up in front of me. I had to get off the gas a little bit and Matt (Covington) was able to capitalize."

Crockett led the first nine laps before Covington took over the top spot in traffic. The duo swapped the lead once again on Lap 17 and Crockett led the remainder of the race.

"After I had got passed we had a clear track for five or six laps," he said. "I was able to track Matt down and get to him before we got back to traffic. We got through traffic better after that. Ultimately I didn't get held up or had to slow down too much. I was able to finish the thing off.

"I also want to note our appreciation to CRC for being on the car for the weekend and we always appreciate Shelby Park Marketing for their support."

The win gave Crockett at least one ASCS National Tour triumph during each of the last four years. It also secured a career-best runner-up result in the championship standings.

Dominic Scelzi Excited to Make Debut at Kokomo Speedway This Saturday

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Oct. 20, 2020) - Saturday will mark another new track for Dominic Scelzi to check off the list.

Scelzi and Roth Motorsports invade Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind., for the second-to-last World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event of the season.

"I'm excited to get an opportunity to race at Kokomo Speedway," he said. "We're putting a new car together so hopefully we can have more of a balance."

Scelzi made his debut with Roth Motorsports' World of Outlaws team last weekend during a pair of races in the Midwest. It began on Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., where Scelzi made his first appearance. He timed in 25th quickest in qualifying, placed seventh in a heat race and ended fourth in the Last Chance Showdown to transfer into the back of the main event. Scelzi capped the night by maneuvering from 24th to 19th.

The team then headed to Lake Ozark Speedway on Saturday for the Jason Johnson Classic. Scelzi qualified 18th quickest, finished sixth in a heat race, produced a third-place run in the Last Chance Showdown and rallied from 23rd to 18th in the A Main.

"I think for us we're wading through all the stuff the team has," he said. "There is a lot of different stuff than the California team, which I drove for last year. We're trying to figure out what we need. We changed so much stuff in the two nights because we were extremely tight and didn't have good drive. When we were against moisture in the track the left front was off the ground. You get off the moisture and you get stalled out. Hopefully the new car we're putting together this week will put us in a good position on Saturday night at Kokomo.

"Dennis and Teresa Roth and Todd Ventura put in a lot for this team and I want to put together a solid night with a great result for them. The goal is to consistently run up front during the final couple of races this year."

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 16 - Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. - Qualifying: 25; Heat race: 7 (7); B Main: 4 (5); Feature: 19 (24).

Sides Returning to Kokomo Speedway Saturday for First Time Since 2015

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Oct. 20, 2020) - The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series is down to two weekends of racing remaining this season and Jason Sides is aiming to finish on a high note.

The penultimate event is this Saturday at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind., where Sides most recently competed in June 2015. His best result during a handful of starts at Kokomo Speedway with the World of Outlaws was a 13 th-place showing in 2013.

"It's like a non-wing track," he said. "It's more like Haubstadt, kind of small. A lot of times when we've been there it's been up on the fence. I was just talking to some people the other day and heard they changed the dirt on it and it's around the bottom now, which would be good."

Sides raced in a pair of Outlaws events last weekend beginning on Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. He qualified 19th quickest, ended sixth in a heat race, won the Last Chance Showdown and advanced from 21st to 17th in the A Main.

"We didn't get qualified where we needed to be," he said. "We changed a few things and ran the LCS. We were really good by ourselves out front. In the feature behind those cars we were really, really tight. On the start we couldn't get it turned and lost a few spots. From that point on we realized we had to stay out of dirty air. I just did my own thing to stay out from behind other people."

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway, which hosted the Jason Johnson Classic. Sides timed in 16th quickest. A fifth-place result in a heat race locked him into the main event.

"The track was a little choppy and had a curb in turns three and four," he said. "In the feature we didn't tighten up enough and it was dead slick. They had reworked it right before and the racing lane went right to the top. Once you get lapped you don't want to mess up anyone's race so I rode on the bottom staying out of the way."

Sides finished 19th.

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 16 - Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. - Qualifying: 19; Heat race: 6 (5); B Main: 1 (1); Feature: 17 (21).

Kerry Madsen Hustles From 22nd to Fourth During Jason Johnson Classic

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Oct. 20, 2020) - Kerry Madsen put on a show last Saturday when he charged from 22nd to a fourth-place result during the Jason Johnson Classic at Lake Ozark Speedway.

It marked the Killer Instinct Crossbow sponsored driver's sixth top five of the season with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and the 16th top 10 in the last 19 races for Big Game Motorsports.

The weekend began on Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., where Madsen qualified eighth quickest. A runner-up result in a heat race advanced Madsen into the dash. He placed seventh to line up on the inside of the fourth row for the A Main.

"We went out late and qualified just good enough to get us on the front row in a heat," he said. "We had a good run and ended up in the top two to make the dash. We weren't great in the dash for some reason. I thought we were pretty good in the main event, but the track was pretty one groove. It wasn't a typical Lakeside of being up on the wall. The premier line was around the bottom. The car came on good at the end and we ended up seventh."

Madsen's seventh-place result was his 40th top 10 of the season.

The team ventured to Lake Ozark Speedway on Saturday. Madsen timed in 21 st quickest and a sixth-place run in a heat race relegated him to the Last Chance Showdown. A runner-up result garnered a transfer into the back of the main event and Madsen hustled his way from 22nd to fourth during the 41-lap feature.

"We drew a late number for qualifying and the track lost a bunch of time, plus my laps weren't great," he said. "Then I ended up sixth in the heat so I had to run the LCS. It was almost a blessing because we got to work on our car a little bit. We changed a little bit of stuff and the car was awesome in the A Main. I drove right up through there. I was really good in the middle of turns one and two and the top in turns three and four. I was really happy with that run. At some point you're gonna start deep in the field. You have to drive as hard as you can. A lot of times you're just hoping to get a top 10. To really blast up there and get a top five is pretty nice."

The strong performance also earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

Next up for Big Game Motorsports is a World of Outlaws race on Saturday at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind. Madsen finished fourth during his most recent visit to the track in June 2015. He also placed fifth in 2014 and ninth in 2012 among his five career starts at Kokomo Speedway.

Oct. 16 - Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. - Qualifying: 8; Heat race: 2 (2); Dash: 7 (6); Feature: 7 (7).

Gropp Crowned POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League Rookie of the Year Honors

Belleville, IL (10/20/2020) After a freshman season with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League, Lincoln, Nebraska’s Trey Gropp claimed Rookie of the Year honors and an eighth-place finish overall in the championship standings.

In July 2019, Gropp stepped into a midget for the first time, piloting a ride out of Jay Mounce’s MSW stable at Valley Speedway in Grain valley, Missouri. Results showed a promising heat race win and a 20th place finish in the feature. Building on a handful of respectable runs in 2019, Mounce tagged Gropp to join his MSW team in January at the 2020 Chili Bowl Nationals. Producing solid finishes together in their handful of racing opportunities together in 2020, Mounce, Gropp, and the MSW team had their sights set on clinching the POWRi Lucas Oil Midget League Rookie of the Year title.

A little over halfway through the 2020 race season, Gropp joined the Steve Reynolds Motorsports, Ripper chassis, #21 entry. Gropp has a ton of success with both teams, and overall his best finish came to him with a third-place finish at Federated Auto Parts I-55 Raceway in Pevely, MO. He finished off the season strong with team Ripper and locked up the Rookie of the Year title.

Overall on the season Gropp finished with three top five finishes and five top five in 18 starts with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League.

Neuman Crowned 2020 POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League Champion

Belleville, IL. (10/20/2020) After a valiant effort in 2019 with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League, Jake Neuman came up two spots short in the final championship standings. Neuman determined to make 2020 his year, the New Berlin, IL. native set one goal in mind; to win the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League Championship. With the conclusion of the 2020 season, Jake Neuman did just that and is officially your 2020 POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League Champion.

The hot shoe out of Illinois set out on the tour with his family owned team behind him. The team headed out for the season opener in Grain Valley, MO. at the inaugural Mid-state Open Wheel Nationals. While a podium and a ninth-place finish were nothing too exciting for Neuman, it was all part of the plan to build up solid finishes and grab the championship.

“These last two races were the first races I used a provisional for all year, so we have been pretty good this year.”

After a few months of searching, Neuman found himself in victory lane at Macon Speedway in Macon MO. All-in-all, Neuman never gave up and had a total of 8 top five finishes and 18 top ten in 19 feature events. With a striking 620-point advantage over his long-time friend, and Ex-teammate, Ace McCarthy who finished second in season points.

“This means a lot. We have been racing the midgets for eight years now, to finally get one, it feels good. The cars just been good. My dad, Allen, Bobby, My Bother, everybody in the shop, and really just everybody that has come and helped us this year. I just can’ thank everybody enough. My sponsors Brandt, Littleton, Modern Paving and Scrap, in really can’t thank everybody enough.” Stated 2020 POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League Champion.

Tom Curran Earns POWRi WAR 2020 Rookie-of-the-Year Honors

Belleville, IL. (10/19/2020) Making the ultimate decision to change classes of competition is never an easy choice, especially if the driver questioning those changes is considered one of the nation’s top contenders. Tom Curran, of Kansas City Missouri, would prove to be up to the task of altering his racing career in 2020, parking his winning micro to undertake a full-size non-wing sprint car endeavor.

Heading into his first race with the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League Racing Tom Curran would laughingly remark, “I don’t really have any high expectations; load the car in one-piece, don’t get in anyone’s way, and finish basically”. Curran would do more than just make laps though, keeping pace with front-runners from the start and establishing a solid reputation early. Unfortunately, motor issues would sideline Tom for several events throughout the season but key placements at the Lake Ozark Speedway’s Non-Wing Nationals would be the edge Curran was after in his rookie of the year honor campaign.

Showing his early career-best at Central Missouri Speedway, in Warrensburg Missouri, with an outstanding podium place finish Tom would not shy away from an epic five-car battle for the top spot. Curran would hold his own all feature by wheeling his way through lap traffic while slicing-and-dicing among the Midwest’s top open-wheel talent, bringing the crowd to their feet several times with drives to the front after claiming his first-ever POWRi WAR heat race victory. Gaining one top-five and one top-ten in three feature starts on the season, the future looks well-lit for this stand-out emerging POWRi Lucas Oil Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League star.

Reflecting upon this past non-wing sprint car season, Curran would state “It’s a nice honor to win rookie of the year, as a team we learned a lot and had some good results at times.” Going on to add “Future plans are to just keep learning and try to become more consistent.”

Racing the highly colorfully wrapped and eye-catching Deaton’s Waterfront Services, Permastone Countertop Solutions, Misty’s Glass, AFD Graphics, Speed Shack Performance 410, DRC Chassis #11X; Curran will definitively be a force to be reckoned with on the racing surface in 2021 and beyond with the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League as he continues to tackle the learning curve of changing classes. Expect Tom to resume his steady transition in 2021 and be back to his winning ways in no time within open-wheel competitions.

Top Ten in Season Standings with the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League:
1. #91 Riley Kreisel Warsaw, MO 4 Wins (3540 Points)
2. #77 Jack Wagner Lone Jack, MO (-790)
3. #6 Mario Clouser Auburn, IL 3 Wins (-1120)
4. #11W Wyatt Burks Topeka, KS (-1450)

NOVEMBER, 2020 SERIES EVENT IN SYRACUSE, NY HAS BEEN CANCELLED

TRENTON, NJ October 19, 2020 . . . The Indoor Auto Racing Championship Series Fueled by VP Race Fuels has both good and bad news to report for its thousands of fans and loyal racers.

The sixth annual event at Allentown, Pa.’s PPL Center, Friday and Saturday, January 8th and 9th, is a go thanks to recently released state COVD-19 guidelines.

“The recent guidelines released by Pennsylvania Governor Wolf have given us the opportunity to begin planning the event at Allentown’s PPL Center,” said promoter Len Sammons. “While gathering numbers are limited, its gives us a starting spot and the opportunity to begin planning the Allentown event. Entries will soon be made available and a limited amount of tickets put on sale. It’s our hope, as the event grows closer, the governor will expand his gathering numbers so we can allow for more fans and racers in the PPL Center.”

Event planning has already begun as well for the next event to be held inside historic Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. The 18th annual NAPA Know How Racing Weekend will be held on Friday and Saturday, January 29th and 30th.

While the series awaits indoor seating guidelines from New Jersey’s governor, both building management and Meet AC Tourism remain very optimistic. Plans are already in place to meet current COVID-19 guidelines and social distancing.

Justin Sanders Picks up Two Top-Five Finishes with Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour at Devil’s Bowl Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting in one final weekend of action in the Midwest in for the 2020 season, Justin Sanders and Antaya Motorsports had a strong weekend at Devil’s Bowl Speedway that saw the Aromas, CA driver pick up a pair of Top-Five finishes.

“For only running here once earlier this season, I was really happy with our weekend,” Justin Sanders said. “I wish we could get more laps at a lot of these places in the Midwest, but extremely thankful for the opportunity I had to get back here and get my first look and get a feel for a lot of different tracks.”

Friday night marked the opening night of the ‘Winter Nationals’, and Sanders would get things started off by charging from his sixth starting spot to finish second in his heat race aboard the Fire Protection Management/Alkaline 88/North County Plastering backed No. 16a machine.

Advancing directly into the opening night feature event, Sanders would roll off of the starting grid from the fifth starting position. Racing toe to toe with a few of the series’ top regulars, Sanders would battle for a podium spot late in the race.

Unable to crack the Top-Three, Sanders would cap his night off with a fifth-place finish.

Saturday night brought on the Winter Nationals finale, as well as marked Sanders’ final start in the Midwest of the season.

Lining up eight in his heat race, Sanders put on another show early in the night as he sliced and diced his way around the ½ mile speedway to secure a third-place finish and again transfer directly into the feature event.

Taking the green flag from the third starting position, Sanders would battle with the likes of Sam Hafertepe, Jack Dover, and Dylan Westbrook as they all jockeyed for position in the fast paced feature event.

Again, finding himself in a battle for a spot on the podium, Sanders would come up just short as he capped his night off with another strong result by way of his fifth place finish.

“I am kind of mad at myself that we were unable to get on the podium either night,” Sanders said. “A couple mistakes on my end, but that comes with more laps at these places. Again, thank you to all of our partners that made these trips this year possible.”

Justin and Larry Antaya Motorsports would like to thank Fire Protection Management, Alkaline 88, North County Plastering, Roadside 24 Hour Service, Wicked Cushion, FK Rod Ends, DMI, Triple X Race Co., Walker Filtration, FK Shocks, and Wings Unlimited for their support in 2020.

ON TAP: Justin Sanders and Antaya Motorsports are unsure where they will be next at the time of press.

Tanner Carrick Picks Up Top-Five at Johnny Key Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA: Continuing to race in his native California as the 2020 season winds down, Tanner Carrick put together a nice run during Saturday night’s 60th Annual Johnny Key Classic that saw him leave the Ocean Speedway with a fifth-place finish.

“We had a super good car all night long,” Tanner Carrick said. “We were able to put ourselves in a good spot heading into the 35-lap feature, but I made a couple of mistakes and then the rubber showed up and I couldn’t really make up the lost ground.”

48 cars checked in at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, CA and the Lincoln, CA driver timed the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83T machine in 11th fastest in time trials.

Needing to pick up the win in his heat race to put himself in the Dash, Carrick would do just that as he proceeded to finish third in the Dash.

Taking the green flag form the inside of the second row in the 35-lap feature event an a very slick surface, Carrick would settle into third in the early goings of the race.

Making a couple of slight mistakes, Carrick would slip back to the fifth spot as he looked for a way to fight his way back to the Top-three.

As the race moved along, the slick track would soon turn abrasive and rubber would begin to go down on the speedway. As the field found the rubber, passing would seemingly cease for the final stanza of the race.

Continuing to hit his marks and keep his spot inside the Top-5, Carrick brought his Saturday night to a close with a fifth-place finish.

“We had to win the Heat to qualify for the Dash, and we did that to put ourselves in a really good spot for the ‘A’,” Carrick added. “Unfortunately I made a couple of mistakes that cost us a few spots and as rubber became part of the equation I was unable to make those back up.”

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: 30, Wins: 3, Top 5’s: 15, Top 10’s: 22

ON TAP: Carrick will return to action on October 30th in Hanford, CA for the Tom Tarlton Classic.

Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports cap 2020 with top-ten during Tennessee road trip

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (October 19, 2020) – Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports capped their 2020 campaign with a road trip south of the Mason Dixon, this time joining the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS Series) for a two-day visit to Mountain View Raceway in Spring City, Tennessee, on Friday and Saturday, October 16-17.

Although not ending their trek to foreign territory on top, Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports did their best to provide competitiveness during their weekend road trip and secured one top-ten finish, opening their stay in the Volunteer State with an eighth-place performance on Friday. The Forest, Ohio-based race team concluded the Mason Dixon Challenge doubleheader with a 15th-place run on Saturday.

“It was a tough weekend, but it’s nothing to shake our heads at. It was a fun trip and hopefully we have the opportunity to do it again in the future. Now that we know what to expect, I’d like another shot at it,” Matt Westfall said, driver of the Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car. “I can’t thank Ray Marshall and this entire team enough for their hard work in 2020. Ray is a special guy; he believes in me and he believes in this team. He makes all of the results possible.”

Despite adapting to a dysfunctional schedule as the result of early season COVID-19 restrictions, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will hit the off-season with a load of success to their credit, scoring four victories since July 17 and doing so at three different facilities across two states. Westfall, the 2019 BOSS Series champion, accomplished victories at Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, Indiana, on July 17, Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Indiana, on August 29, and at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan, on September 25 and October 9. The victories at Kokomo Speedway and I-96 Speedway (9/25) were earned during BOSS action, raising Westfall’s BOSS win total to ten in three seasons; four in 2018, four in 2019 and two in 2020.

With all results considered, Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports concluded the 2020 BOSS campaign second in the Series standings, simultaneously accomplishing a fifth-place result in Gas City’s weekly point championship.

“We were competitive on all levels in 2020,” Westfall added. “It was a weird year considering how things started out, but to come out of the quarantine and still accomplish what we did says so much about this team and our focus level. It was an easy year to get distracted and lose our focus, but we never did. I’m proud of this team and I’m already looking forward to next season.”

News and updates pertaining to Ray Marshall Motorsports’ 2021 plans will be unveiled in the coming weeks. Fans are encouraged to stay alert for further details.

Schatz finds podium in Jason Johnson Classic; Kokomo ahead

Date: Friday, October 16th Event: World of Outlaws at Lakeside Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Track: Lakeside Speedway (Kansas City, Kansas) Donny Schatz A-Main Finish (Start): 8th (14th)

Date: Saturday, October 17th Event: 2nd Annual Jason Johnson Classic Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Track: Lake Ozark Speedway (Eldon, Missouri) Donny Schatz A-Main Finish (Start): 3rd (4th)

2020 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: 6846 points | Third (82-points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 19, 2020) - In the final multi-destination weekend of the 2020 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series season, Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing put together a consistent campaign, this time securing back-to-back top-ten performances including a podium run during the second edition of the Jason Johnson Classic at Lake Ozark Speedway on Saturday, October 17.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Advance Professional/Carquest Auto Parts/Technet Professional Automotive Service/Ford Performance/Mobil 1/Sage Fruit/Curb Records/Absolute Automation & Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Digital Ally/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, was almost perfect during Lake Ozark’s Jason Johnson tribute. The ten-time World of Outlaws champion ignited his evening by recording the second fastest time during qualifying time trials, finishing second during heat race action soon thereafter. Schatz eventually finished third in the $15,000-to-win main event, bouncing ahead one spot while out dueling the likes of Aaron Reutzel, Sheldon Haudenschild and Kerry Madsen.

“It was a guessing game of what was going to happen when they redid the track there for the Feature,” Schatz said of Lake Ozark. “It got really fast on the top and kind of took everything away from the bottom. Kind of thought that’s where it was going to go, so that’s the direction we went. We tightened the car up and got laid over a little too much.”

In total, Schatz advanced seven feature positions during his Kansas/Missouri road trip, kicking things off with a rally from 14th to eighth during his Lakeside Speedway start on Friday, October 16. The Fargo, North Dakota-native earned his way into Lakeside’s feature program with a fourth-place result during his respective heat race.

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their quest toward the 2020 World of Outlaws championship with a visit to Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Indiana, on Saturday, October 24. Schatz will enter Kokomo’s gates third in the Series driver championship chase trailing defending World of Outlaws champion and current point leader, Brad Sweet, by 82 markers. Mathematically speaking, Schatz is not out of the hunt for an 11th Series title.

San Jose, California’s Tim Kaeding manned the wheel of Tony Stewart’s familiar No. 14 during the two-day World of Outlaws swing through Kansas and Missouri and helped Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing double their success rate. Kaeding capped the two-race weekend with his own pair of top-ten results, headlining the weekend with a fourth-place run at Lakeside Speedway. The third-generation racer went on to finish seventh at Lake Ozark after starting 11th.

Robinson Sixth at Johnny Key Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night, Ryan Robinson and Weiher Racing made the trip to Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, CA for the Johnny Key Classic and the team scored a sixth-place finish in their lone appearance at the facility in 2020.

“Saturday night was the first time we have raced at Ocean Speedway as a team,” Ryan Robinson said. “We struggled a little bit early in the night, but we worked at it and got our car really good in the feature.”

With 48-cars checked in for the 60th Annual Johnny Key Classic, Robinson would get the night started off by timing the Mako Farms, Inc./LP Holdings/RPI backed No. 14W in 10th quickest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, passing would be tough on the fast surface though Robinson would finish in the fourth position and punch his ticket into the 35-lap Johnny Key Classic feature event.

Continuing to tweak on their car, Robinson rolled out for the feature event where he would take the green flag from the 12th starting position on a surface that was now extremely slick.

When the race came to life, Robinson got off to a nice start as he quickly jumped into the Top-10 as he found himself up in the eighth spot. With a very sporty machine underneath him, Robinson was able to continue to work his way forward as he worked up into seventh by the race’s 10th lap.

As the track continued to ‘go away’, rubber laying down was imminent, and Robinson continued to forge his way ahead before passing became difficult.

Falling back to eighth at the race’s hallway point, Robinson would use a restart with 15-laps to go to power his way up into the sixth position. Once he got into sixth, the track began taking rubber and as the field found the rubber groove, passing with essentially come to a halt.

Hitting his marks in the final laps, Robinson would close out his Johnny Key Classic with a sixth-place finish.

“We were really good, and we were able to get through traffic well and we got what we could before the rubber started laying down,” Robinson said. “Thanks to Todd, and everyone that helps out on this car for working hard all night long and giving us a really good shot in the feature.”

CHAMP SADDLES UP: Flick Reflects on Fourth Lernerville Track Title, Ready for Stampede Action on Saturday Night

Flick stands as one of four Lernerville track champs and 256 cars in the pits chasing a Stampede belt buckle

SARVER, PA – Oct. 16, 2020 – Lernerville Speedway caps off its 2020 racing season this weekend with its annual dirt track racing extravaganza, the DIRTcar Roundup Steel City Stampede, just one week after crowning its 2020 track champions.

For one of the Fab 4 title winners, it’s been a long and winding road to earning his championship gold. He and his team will be at Lernerville for the 13 divisions of Stampede Feature racing Saturday evening, PLUS the Enduro 100; spectator gates open at 3 p.m., Last Chance Showdown events kickoff the program at 4 p.m. before rolling right into Features. Or, catch all the action from your home, live on DIRTVision presented by Drydene.

Apollo, PA, is home to third-generation wheelman and now four-time Lernerville Speedway 410 Sprint Car champion AJ Flick. Flick found Victory Lane four times at The Action Track in the midst of a season delayed by pandemic restrictions. At times, many feared the racing season was over before it even got off the ground. But Flick kept hope, and was one thankful owner/driver by year’s end.

“I definitely want to give all of these speedways, Lernerville included, Port Royal, Lincoln, all the tracks that were able to come back out of the woodwork basically and, not saying ‘fight the government,’ but they were able to put regulations in place that allowed us to go racing this year,” Flick said.

Complete Chaos & Co. scored their first victory of the season on July 31, three race weeks after the regular season finally began on June 19. Starting fifth, Flick made some moves for position after several restarts and grabbed the lead with some tough customers behind him. But as all veterans of the circuit do, he was able to hold them off, including a late-race charge from Sye Lynch. Proving, once again, his proficiency around the 4/10-mile.

“It was obviously late in the year when we got our first win, but I think that was the same case for a lot of people,” Flick said. “I’m just happy that even though we didn’t get a win against Central PA guys, out at Port Royal or Selinsgrove or any place like that, at least we were able to back up some of our competition and what we were able to do here locally.”

The competition he faced that night and all throughout the season included some of the area’s finest talent, including Carl Bowser, Brandon Matus and the 2019 track champion, Jack Sodeman Jr. Flick felt that even with his experience around Lernerville, those he raced against in 2020 made he and his team work more and more each week.

“Everybody gets better, there’s no ifs, ands or buts about it,” Flick said. “It seems like every time we hit on something, maybe we’re good for a couple weeks and everybody else steps their game up. And there’s times where other people have been way quicker than us and it makes us work harder.

“That’s a lot of the reason we try and run out in Central PA, simply because you’re racing against the best, and I think that’s been proven here.”

Now with his fourth track championship in-hand, Flick’s done a bit of reflecting on what it means to see his name engraved on the trophy next to the word “champion” yet again.

“It means a lot, mainly because most years that we’ve won, we’ve just been so consistent that we stayed in the points lead the whole time and ended up just locking it up at the end of the year. This time, we got some real bad luck at the beginning of the year.

“But to come from behind, to run down the points leader and still be able to lock it up with one night of racing… we were 36 points ahead with a maximum of 40 in a night, it was pretty cool to do it in the dominant fashion that we did.”

And dominant he was, winning two more Lernerville Features right after his first breakthrough to give him three in-a-row. Capping that off with a fourth and final W just two weeks ago, Flick is ready to put the cherry atop the proverbial sundae with his first belt buckle Stampede trophy since 2016. He led his Heat Race on Friday night flag-to-flag, and he’ll be in the redraw for a starting spot on the front row of Saturday’s $3,000-to-win finale.

“Absolutely,” Flick said when asked if another Stampede win would be the perfect cap to his season. “Not only that, but just the fact that we lost a car at Port Royal as well. So, to grab a couple dollars so that we can end the 2020 season and go into next with just a little bit of financial security and start putting some stuff together [for 2021] would be pretty cool.”

Catch Flick and the rest of the Lernerville Speedway’s 410 Sprint Car field in action Saturday evening as part of the 12th annual DIRTcar Roundup Steel City Stampede. Spectator gates open at 3 p.m., Last Chance Showdown events kickoff the program at 4 p.m. before rolling right into Features. Or, catch all the action from your home, live on DIRTVision presented by Drydene.

 

 

Brian Brown Eager to Race Close to Home This Weekend With World of Outlaws

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Oct. 16, 2020) - Brian Brown is racing close to home this weekend during a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader.

Brown recently wrapped up a six-week visit to Central Pennsylvania by gaining eight positions in the Nittany Showdown main event last Saturday at Port Royal Speedway. It was tied for the most cars passed.

Oct. 9 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 5 (4); Feature: 18 (17).

"We started off well," Brown said. "We hot lapped at the top of the board. We were off a little in qualifying and didn't get a good start in the heat. We fell back a bit, but locked in. In the feature I don't feel like we were bad. We got lapped early and then we were trapped. We couldn't advance anymore positions even if we were fast enough to do it. You don't want to be the guy trying to drive by people racing for the win and potentially wreck someone, but I feel like we got some good notes for Saturday."

Oct. 10 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Qualifying: 11; Heat race: 7 (6); B Main: 4 (8); Feature: 16 (24).

"We didn't qualify as well or finish as good in in the heat race, but we felt really good in the B Main," Brown said. "Then we went from 24 th to 16th in the feature. It doesn't sound like a great performance, but we were better than we had been. It's been a bit of a struggle, but I feel like we're making gains. It will be helpful that we got back to our shop this week so we can fine-tune some stuff we couldn't do on the road."

UP NEXT - Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., and Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., for the Jason Johnson Classic with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series

"We won at Lakeside with the Outlaws a couple of years ago and we were in the running for a top five at Lake Ozark last year before we had a DNF," Brown said. "We're taking a good package to both tracks. I hope we roll around like I think we can. I don't think we're going in there as a favorite, but I think we an upset them if everything goes right for us."

SEASON STATS -

60 races, 5 wins, 14 top fives, 26 top 10s, 34 top 15s, 44 top 20s

Penns Valley Meat Market adds Cash, Smoked Meat and Cheese to the Challenge!

Penns Valley Meat Market, located in Millheim, has stepped up its support of the PA Sprint Series with new commitments to the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge.

Along with its $100 Hard Charger Award, Penns Valley is committing another $600 to be distributed to heat race winners. Also, one lucky fan will win some tasty smoked meats and cheeses.

Here’s how that fan prize will be awarded. Each year fans get involved in the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge with one fan selected to represent each car/driver in the field. Typically, we throw balls into the crowd, with each ball representing one starting position. The fan with the winning driver gets to join the Victory Lane celebration and wins a big-screen TV.

This year, PENNS VALLEY is adding to that celebration by awarding a cured/smoked meat and cheese package worth at least $100 to the fan with the driver who has won the Hard Charger Award.

This fun contribution brings the total race commitment by Penns Valley Meat Market to $800 and the total contribution by these fantastic race fans/local business people to $1,500, PLUS Penns Valley’s sponsorship of the overall PASS/IMCA/RaceSaver points fund at Port Royal Speedway.

We cannot possibly thank Penns Valley enough for this support, especially in this most challenging year. We hope that PASS teams and fans support this wonderful family owned business!

2021 Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series Completes Sprint Car Bandits Series Mission

Garland, TX (10/16/20) by DarinShort.com. Nearly five years ago the Sprint Car Bandits® series sought out to provide area sprint car racing teams with a more sustainable form of racing – yet while utilizing the same exact cars they were already competing with, just with a few simple, yet critical rules edits.

And now after five full seasons of racing, the series has collected enough data points from its simple, yet effective, rules package that it can fulfill its primary mission to provide sprint car racing teams, of various budget and engine types, a series where they can go compete in on the same track on the same night.

But in 2021 it will be without the label of being a “360C.I. maximum engine size” series. In 2021 the Sprint Car Bandits series will become known the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series.

To view the new series branding, click www.2021BOSS.com , which will also become the online info hub during the off-season for the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series. Each event will pay a minimum of $2,000 to win and $300 to start.

Racetracks that have already teamed us with us in the past know that we, as a series, co-promote each event with the track by providing complete event marketing packages including press releases, event flyers and a string of updates leading up to and including race day. And this next phase in series evolution will simply keep moving the needle further in the same direction.

Fans will continue to see exciting and unpredictable racing with lots of passing – which is the cornerstone of our series existence.

All area sprint car teams will still be paired with the exact same set of Sprint Car Bandits series rules that they’ve ran with in the past, except now we’re moving on without cubic inch limits on the engines.

This has been the ultimate goal of the series since its inception, that we felt our rules package would make cars with all types of engine sizes be competitive – because we restrict the top wing angle to a maximum of 20°, don’t allow hydraulic wing sliders or tire bleeders, cars must weigh 1,500# after the feature with the driver, and teams must run the same pair of rear Hoosier tires all night long…with a 92 casing on the left rear tire, which helps free up the car.

To further elaborate on the ‘cubic inch’ discussion, we, as a series, have never cared about what size or configuration a sprint car driver chose, as we knew our simple rules with the wings, weight and the tires would force enhanced competition to where it put more control in the fine tuning of the chassis and the skill of the driver racing the car.

And it’s worked.

And it’s worked to the point that anyone who has raced with us the past two seasons know that we haven’t even had the need to take a hood off of a sprint car one time in post-race tech inspection.

Paired with our 1,500# weight rule, that’s not going to change for 2021, or any of the other signature ‘Bandits rules, going forward if drivers choose to use the widely available LS package that exceeds 360C.I. that is an aluminum block – or any other type of aluminum block – they will still have to make weight to be able to use that engine configuration in the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series. (Rules on specific added-weight location for those cars will be forthcoming in the off-season.)

With one Sprint Car Bandits event yet to take place in 2020, more news, scheduling and Series information will be provided during the off season at www.2021BOSS.com.

Race tracks within an approximate 150 mile radius of Dallas-Forth Worth Texas that are interested in booking the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series can contact Darin at dssm93@msn.com for more information and available 2021 dates at your earliest convenience. If your business would like to be involved with our series email SprintCarBandits@Outlook.com - as we have several affordable and effective marketing packages available for the 2021 racing season - which will be here before you know it!

A number of events are already secured with our ‘series alliance tracks’ that formed this past season when the ‘Bandits teamed up with the RaceSaver IMCA Texas Sprint Series to make sure our collective schedules interlock – and didn’t overlap – which allowed race teams and fans both the opportunity of catching all the action of the 2020 season without missing an event. That collective plan remains in place for 2021 as well.

A lot has changed over the course of the past 19 years in this country, essentially since 9/11/2001. But through all of that change, one thing generally remained unchanged: the world changed but the packaging of sprint car racing failed to, and in the past five years we’ve tried to do our part to help adjust the rules and curb racer expense, which in effect results in them having more racing budget to work with…thus creating a more sustainable form of sprint car racing to help offset the climbing overhead of racing in the landscape where most racetracks cannot offset the increased overhead to host quality sprint car racing events.

And we’re proud to have done our part to offer at least something to the sprint car racing community to make it more sustainable while the world continues to change, and we vow to stay on the same path in that same manner with the evolution of the series now becoming the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series.

Until we have our next 2021 Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series communication in the off season, please join us for the Sprint Car Bandits series finale at 82 Speedway in Petty Texas, with a possible $3,000 to win, on Saturday November 7th with a 5pm twilight race time. Click www.SprintCarBandits.com for complete information along with the latest updates on Facebook @82Speedway and @SprintCarBandits – until then – see you at the races!

 

 

Reutzel Finishes Off Third All Star Title in Style – Takes on World of Outlaws this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (October 15, 2020) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team completed a third consecutive All Star Circuit of Champions championship season with last weekend’s Jim and Joanne Ford Classic at Ohio’s Fremont Speedway.

And the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car team did it in style just as they have done the previous two seasons with a victory in the series season finale, pushing Reutzel’s 2020 win total in All Star competition to 11.

“Everything just worked out perfectly for us Saturday night, it was an awesome way to get another championship with the All Stars,” Reutzel explains.

There is little time to soak in the spoils of another title though, as Reutzel and the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment team take on the World of Outlaws Sprint Car series at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, KS, on Friday night and then Lake Ozark Speedway at Eldon, MO, on Saturday night.

It will be Reutzel’s first Lakeside Speedway outing since an ASCS National Tour win in 2017 and his first visit to Lake Ozark Speedway.

“I have always enjoyed racing at Lakeside Speedway and from what I have seen, Lake Ozark looks like it should be fun to race at too,” Reutzel comments.

Reutzel and the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspension/Fischer Body Shop team carried a 74-point lead in All Star Circuit of Championship standings into last weekend’s Fremont double and virtually secured the $65,000 title with an eighth-place finish on Friday night.

“We just knew we needed to be within 13 positions of Cory (Eliason) to lock it up, so we just never were really in contention without getting too wild,” Reutzel says.

The approach was clearly different for Saturday night’s $10,000-to-win Jim and Joanne Ford Classic finale.

“We knew we could go harder on Saturday night and just go for the win, and it worked out for us,” Reutzel says. “Everything just played out right and then the track had a few rough spots so we just ran right through them and were able to get another win.”

Things fell into place indeed with Reutzel quickest among his qualifying group and then transferring from his heat race before winning his Dash from the pole position to earn the pole for the 40-lap main event.

From there, Reutzel jumped out front at the outset and never looked back en route to his 15th overall win of the 2020 season.

“I can’t say enough about the Baughmans for giving me such an incredible opportunity to drive their cars. I couldn’t be more proud of this entire team. It’s absolutely incredible what we’ve been able to do in such a short amount of time,” Reutzel said in Fremont Speedway victory lane. “What we have accomplished, I never would have dreamed. Everyone plays a massive part.”

Reutzel and the BRM No. 87 team vie to add a World of Outlaws win or two to the ledger this weekend.

2020 Quick Stats: 79 races, 15 wins, 38 top-fives, 52 top-tens.

Next Up: World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Lakeside Speedway (Kansas City, KS) on Friday and Lake Ozark Speedway (Eldon, MO) on Saturday.

Williamson Excited for ASCS National Tour Season Finale at Devil's Bowl Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - COLUMBIA, Mo. (Oct. 15, 2020) - Although the season is winding down Garet Williamson still has more work to do.

This weekend's 47th annual Winter Nationals at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, is the season finale for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. But for Williamson, who has been a Rookie of the Year contender, it's another opportunity to build momentum and carry it into next year.

"It's been crazy with everything going on, but honestly, it's flown by," he said. "I can't believe we are already here. It seems like we were out in California (to start the season) a couple of weeks ago.

"It's been good. I've had a lot of fun. We've learned a lot. And it's been a successful year for our rookie year, but I'm excited to get into this weekend and see how we do."

Williamson is ninth in the championship standings entering the two-day show. The 20-year-old Bryant Paver Motorsports driver is looking for continued consistency at a track he's never raced at.

To close the gap on the competition, Williamson is watching film in an effort to learn the subtle nuances of the Texas facility and how the track surface changes during the night.

A good performance could be critical not only for next year, but the rest of the season. Williamson plans to head west to California in the beginning of November and he will face plenty of stiff competition in the Golden State.

"It's huge," he said. "I think we are sitting ninth in points so I don't think we can get farther than that. It's cool to be in the top 10 our first year with ASCS. We wanted to be Rookie of the Year, but Dylan Westbrook's been fast and had a really strong year.

"This isn't it for us. We're actually going to California the first week of November so we want to do well this week and build on it. We want to have some confidence heading out there, especially with how good the guys are out there."

Old School Racing's Tankersley Venturing to Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - WICHITA FALLS, Texas (Oct. 15, 2020) - Channin Tankersley is invading Devil's Bowl Speedway this weekend for the 47 th annual Winter Nationals.

The half-mile oval in Mesquite, Texas, is the site of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour season finale on Friday and Saturday.

"We've had decent success at Devil's Bowl throughout the years and with our season winding down these two races provide a good opportunity to race against some great competition in a prestigious event," Tankersley said.

The Old School Racing driver enters the event with confidence after he posted a career-best World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series result of 12th at the track last month. Tankersley also has a handful of top 10s in ASCS action at Devil's Bowl Speedway during the last several years, highlighted by seventh-place showings during the Winter Nationals in 2015 and 2013.

"The pill draw will be key both nights," he said. "You want to be in a good position for your heat race and then you'll need to capitalize on it to set yourself up for the A Main. Hopefully that plays out in our favor and we have a fast car. If those two things align I think we have a great shot to produce a successful weekend."

Tankersley raced last Saturday with the Sprint Car Bandits at Monarch Motor Speedway. He charged from seventh to win a heat race and was in contention to win the feature when a crash ended his night early.

The series made its debut run at Petaluma on July 18th with Fresno’s David Prickett driving the #22q Henson General Engineering Spike/EcoTec to victory. He was followed by Tyler Slay of Watsonville, who won the Ocean Speedway round for WMR on August 7th in a duel with Prickett.

Bogucki Wrapping Up Season This Weekend at Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Oct. 14, 2020) - Scott Bogucki has always enjoyed his visits to Devil's Bowl Speedway, where he will wrap up the 2020 campaign this weekend.

The SawBlade.com sponsored driver invades the unique half-mile oval on Friday and Saturday during the 47th annual Winter Nationals, which are the final two Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour races of the year.

"It's a place I always turn up confident that I'll have speed," he said. "It took a couple of years. It's real tricky. It's one of those places that takes time. Someone asked me, 'How do you get around there well?' I said, 'You race there.' You need a lot of laps there. It's a beast of its own."

Bogucki earned a career-best Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions result of third during a race at the track earlier this year.

"We hadn't run the 410 in some time and drove from eighth to third with the All Stars," he said. "If we could do that we should be able to do that with the 360."

Bogucki also placed seventh at the track during a pair of ASCS races last year, was victorious at the oval in 2018 - along with a 10th -place showing - and he scored his first-ever top 10 at the track in 2017. He enters this weekend ranked third in the championship standings.

"We need to put in two solid finishes and hopefully wrap up third in the points," he said. "Given how this year has gone that'd be absolutely a great way to wrap up the year."

Ian Madsen Set To Close 2020 World of Outlaws Season with McGhee Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA: As the All Star Circuit of Champions Season came to a close last week, it also brought the end of Ian Madsen’s stint with Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports, as he now moves into the McGhee Motorsports entry to close the 2020 World of Outlaws schedule.

“I am really thankful to Mike and Josh Baughman, Wayne Priddy, and Curt Fischer for the opportunity they presented me with the last couple of months,” Ian Madsen said. “I really wanted to give this team a win before our season ended, but still had a lot of fun racing with Wayne and Matt.”

During the final weekend of the year with the ASCoC, Madsen and company got off to a nice start as the St. Marys, NSW pilot earned fast time honors in his qualifying group before running fourth in his heat race.

Winning the Dash, Madsen would find himself on the front row of the Friday night feature event. Getting the jump, Madsen would set a torrid pace as he led early. Continuing to lead the way, traffic would be tough to maneuver through, and Madsen would lose the top spot with just 10-laps left the feature.

Trying to mount a charge back to the front, Madsen would slip back to finish fourth, as the team turned their attention to the Saturday night finale.

Timing in third fastest in his group, Madsen would finish fourth in his heat race and still find himself in the Dash, which he won. Front the front row, Madsen would get off to a nice start, however trouble on the second lap would see the former Knoxville Raceway champion hook a rut and get his machine out of shape.

With contact ensuing, the damage would be too severe to continue, and Madsen’s night would come to an early end.

“It was a disappointing last night with those guys in 2020, but again, I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with all of them,” Madsen noted. “Also want to send a huge congratulations to fellow BMR driver, Aaron Reutzel and his team on their third consecutive All Star Title. It was an honor to work alongside that team, and I wish them well during their remaining events in 2020.”

While Madsen though the conclusion of the All Star season brought the end to his season, Monday night he worked a deal with McGhee Motorsports to fill the seat of the No. 11 car in the final five World of Outlaws events of 2020.

“Monday the McGhee’s reached out to see if I was interested in running a few races for them to close the season out and I jumped at the opportunity,” Madsen added. “They have great equipment, and I look forward to getting to work against the Outlaws starting this weekend at Lake Ozark Speedway, and Lakeside Speedway. With nothing concrete lined up in 2021 yet, I am hoping to put together some great runs so I can find something fulltime.”

RAGING RUNNER UP: Marks Nearly Snatches Victory from Larson at Port Royal
Weekend off up next for CJB crew; BAPS on tap for the following weekend

CARLISLE, PA. - October 14, 2020 - Brent Marks had the pass made.

He shot around race leader Kyle Larson on the high side coming off of turn two with only a handful of laps to go. Kerry Madsen rolling to a stop yards ahead of this battle brought out the caution lights and reset the field during the finale of the Nittnany Showdown at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway. With Larson back to the lead, Marks held on for second and wondered what might have been after the checkers flew.

The runner up finish on Saturday, October 10th and the half mile known as, "The Speed Palace,'" was an improvement over the opening night of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series double header. During the Friday, October 9th event, Marks timed in 11th, finished fourth in his heat race and 15th in the feature.

Overnight, the CJB mad scientists, led by crew chief Barry Jackson, massaged on the #5 machine and watched the labor bear fruit as Marks timed in second , won his heat race and charged from eighth to second in the feature.

"That yellow (flag) Saturday night took the wind out of my sail," said Marks, pilot of the #5 Wolfrun Landscapes, , C&S Lawn and Landscape, Ecynbro Trucking machine. "We had a really good car and it's not often this season you get an opportunity to get by Kyle for the lead. Unfortunately, luck was not on our side but we were there at the end to win that race. We didn't get the best starting spot Friday night and the track was very fast making it difficult to move up through the field. We worked on things Saturday throughout the night and just kept finding more speed."

BAPS Motorspeedway will host the CJB team next on Saturday, October 24th. Until the crew and their driver will take a well deserved back to recoup and regroup.

"I am really proud of the gains we have made in the last 50+ races," said Marks. "The team as a whole has gelled really well. We've gathered a ton of podium finishes, won some big races and have been in contention for wins at big races. I feel like we have a lot to build on for next season and I'm looking to finish this season out on a high note."

Two features Friday at BAPS

The PA Sprint Series will try to make up for lost time Friday at BAPS Motor Speedway with a pair of 20-lap feature races, twice the number run at the track so far in 2020.

BAPS normally is one of PASS’s regular schedule stops, but this year brought three early-season cancellations due to COVID-19 restrictions, and two of the three races since the sport re-started have been curtailed by rain. Preliminaries for one of those (August 1) were completed, so that feature is being made up Friday as part of the Sunoco/Insinger Nationals Fueled by Miller’s Race Parts.

A full regular PASS program of heats, B-Main and feature also will be run.

John Walp won the only race run so far this year (June 27) and will try to defend his BAPS PASS/IMCA/RaceSaver points lead. The Wapwallopen racer finished second in track points last year and would like very much to move up a spot.

A large field of sprinters is expected, including some Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series racers from eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

Also on the card Friday night will be the street stocks, extreme stocks, Central PA Legends, limited stocks and Pen Mar Vintage Cars.

Pit gates are scheduled to open at 4:00 p.m. and grandstands at 5:00 Saturday, with racing getting underway at 7:00. Adult general admission is $10, with students 13-17 $7 and kids 12 and under free. Pit admission is $30.

The 2020 PASS season will end Saturday, October 24, with the Ninth Annual Keystone RaceSaver Challenge, the “Blue Collar Classic,” at Port Royal Speedway. This interregional event usually draws racers from more than half a dozen states, and 55 teams had already expressed their intentions to run as of this week.

82 Speedway features a 60’ racing surface that is .26 miles on the pole (1/4 mile) in distance, and the groove is right at 1/3 mile. There are no walls around the entire track – with lots of runoff space wherever you’re racing, which leads to less tore up equipment. Over-sized grandstands that each have unobstructed viewing from whatever spot you choose to view from. Huge spectator and pit parking areas will greet everyone on their arrival. Track owners, Shelley and Tracy Peters who are some of the nicest people you’ll ever come across, and they have been reinvesting in the permanent structure of the facility since they purchased it last year. Bottom line, if you haven’t been there, here’s your chance on Saturday, November 7th at 5pm!

Tommy & Sherry Bryant of Cabinets By Tommy LLC in Granbury Texas has stepped up to provide the 360C.I. Sprint Car Bandits drivers with the Cabinets by Tommy LLC $700 Dash For Cash, with $200 earmarked for 2nd place and $100 for finishing in third! But there’s more! If the polesitter accepts the Tommy’s Challenge they will forgo their pole dash start by starting at the tail instead, and if they come through the Dash field to win, they will not only win $700 – but they will collect the Tommy’s Challenge money, which is $300 – that’ll make the Dash pay $1,000 to win! And if no one wins the $300 Tommy’s Challenge money, that will be paid out in the form of a Hard Charger award for the same amount in the A-feature!

Here’s how the Cabinets by Tommy LLC $700 Dash For Cash will work at 82 Speedway on Saturday, November 7th:

- All SCB teams will draw in and qualify in their heat races as normal, with normal series passing points.

- At the conclusion of the heat races, the top 2 finishers from each heat race will advance to the Cabinets by Tommy LLC $700 Dash For Cash.

- The Dash will be lined up by draw, and the winner will take home an additional $700 from Cabinets by Tommy LLC! Note that if the polesitter doesn’t take the Tommy’s Challenge, it will be offered to the outside polesitter.

More about the sponsor, Cabinets by Tommy LLC. Tommy and Sherry Bryant are the company owners, which is based out of Granbury Texas (southwest of Ft. Worth). Many of you know their daughter through sprint car racing, which is Britney Bryant that drove the beautiful number 99b car at select Sprint Car Bandits events in the past – and is now piloted by John Ricketts with a 360C.I. engine under the hood.

Amantea Continues to Gain Experience and Confidence With USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars Series

Inside Line Promotions - MINERSVILLE, Pa. (Oct. 13, 2020) - Joey Amantea ran a pair of features with the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars last Friday night at Big Diamond Speedway, where he finished seventh and 11th, respectively.

The pair of 360ci sprint car races were the final ones of the 2020 racing season for Amantea as he prepares to make the jump full time to the division next season.

"Big Diamond is kind of a race that we threw together to get some late season experience and it was really a good time," he said. "I really like wingless 360 racing and it's where I want to be going forward. As a team we now know what it takes any given night to run well and be prepared and this was a bit of an eye opener for next season."

Amantea began the night by leading laps in a heat race before finishing where he started - second. That earned a spot into the feature redraw and he pulled the pole position for the first 20-lap feature. With only a handful of starts to his name, Amantea worked through rookie mistakes and a banged-up race car to bring home a seventh-place result.

"We made contact with the guy in second running for the heat win and banged up the car pretty good," he said. "We got everything put together, but by then my head wasn't in it like it should've been and the results don't show how fast we really were."

The feature winner drew the No. 10 for the second feature inversion, which placed Amantea fourth on the starting grid. Focusing on staying clean and gaining experience, Amantea crossed the finish line 11th.

"We missed the setup big time for the second feature and I couldn't really figure out the track," he said. "But it was fun to go racing and do it competitively at this level. I'm excited to get behind the wheel of the 360 a lot more next year and we've got a good head start on 2021."

Next up for Amantea will be two nights of wingless micro sprint competition during the 31st annual National Open at Linda's Speedway in Jonestown, Pa., this Friday and Saturday. The Saturday night finale pays $3,000 to win and Amantea is hoping to come home with a podium finish.

"Last year we were really fast and I think we have a legit shot to win the thing this season," he said. "With the plan next year really being focused around 360 sprint car racing I'd love nothing more than to close out my final full season in a micro with a big win or a podium."

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 9 - Big Diamond Speedway in Minersville, Pa. - Heat race: 2 (2); Feature #1: 7 (1); Feature #2: 11 (4).

Sams III Returning to Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals With Confidence

Inside Line Promotions - NORTH PORT, Fla. (Oct. 13, 2020) - Danny Sams III has a fond memory of his first-ever visit to Devil's Bowl Speedway.

The Sams LaMountain Racing driver made his debut at the half-mile oval in Mesquite, Texas, last year. He placed 16th during the opening night of the Winter Nationals before rallying from 21st to 12 th in the finale. That earned him the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

"The track is pretty tricky in turns three and four," Sams III said. "You really have to know how to drive the track. It's high speed and pretty technical."

The team returns to the track this Friday and Saturday for the 47 th edition of the marquee Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event. It marks the season finale for the series during the rookie campaign for Sams III.

"The goal is to make the show each night and to get back to 10th in the points," he said. "We need to keep our nose clean and make the right moves at the right places to have a successful weekend."

Sams III enters the weekend ranked 11th in the championship standings - only 16 points out of the top 10.

Carney II Holds High Expectations Entering Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - LUBBOCK, Texas (Oct. 13, 2020) - John Carney II has a strong track record at Devil's Bowl Speedway, where he will compete this weekend during the 47th annual Winter Nationals.

The SawBlade.com Xiphos saw blade and Mesilla Valley Transportation backed driver produced Winter Nationals wins with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour in 2017 and 2016. He also recorded 305ci sprint car triumphs during the event in 2015 and 2013.

"I've always been kind of fortunate on the luck side," Carney II said. "It feels like we've won a race there every year for a long time; a regional or national or a 305 race. I always seem to run up front so I'm looking forward to it."

This weekend marks the first 360ci races this season at Devil's Bowl Speedway for Carney II. However, he posted a 14th-place outing with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions and also garnered a career-best World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series result of eighth during a pair of 410ci starts.

"I'm just going to assume there is going to be probably 25 cars or so this weekend," he said. "There probably won't be qualifiers. If there is a redraw situation you'll need to redraw good. You just have to start toward the front of the main to win. Once someone gets out front and gets going it'll be pretty hard to catch them."

Carney II enters the weekend coming off a season-best ASCS National Tour result of eighth in his most recent race.

Crouch Joining POWRi Midgets at Port City Raceway and I-44 Riverside Speedway This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - HAUBSTADT, Ind. (Oct. 13, 2020) - Brenham Crouch is venturing to Oklahoma this weekend for a tripleheader with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League.

Crouch will be behind the wheel of a Toyota Racing sponsored midget for Keith Kunz Motorsports on Thursday at Port City Raceway in Tulsa and on Friday and Saturday at I-44 Riverside Speedway in Oklahoma City.

Thursday's event is the Donnie Ray Crawford Sooner State 55, which will feature a 55-lap A Main.

"I've got a few laps at Port City Raceway," Crouch said. "Throttle control and finding all the moisture you can on the track is important. You have to be cautious because there will be wrecks in front of you whether you're in the front or the back of the pack. I'll have to be elbows up and on my toes all night."

The 55-lap feature also presents a great opportunity for Crouch to learn if he can make the show during his first year racing a midget.

"I think it will be really fun," he said. "Even if you start in the back I've come to find out you can't be counted out and there's opportunity to work your way forward. With more experience I'm excited to go back to Port City and see how much we've progressed since I made my debut there in May."

The two races at I-44 Riverside Speedway will also mark Crouch's first visit since his track debut in May.

"I'm super excited for that place," he said. "I've always had speed there dating back to running micro sprints. Even in the midget for my first time we were fast. I'm really confident about racing at that track."

50 races, 1 win, 7 top fives, 19 top 10s, 33 top 15s, 38 top 20s

Dover Seeking Continued Success at Devil's Bowl Speedway During Winter Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - SPRINGFIELD, Neb. (Oct. 13, 2020) - Devil's Bowl Speedway has always been a good track for Jack Dover.

The half-mile oval in Mesquite, Texas, hosts Dover and the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour this Friday and Saturday for the 47th annual Winter Nationals.

"It seems like we do a little better on bigger tracks," he said. "It suits my driving style. I won the Winter Nationals in 2010 and we've had some really good runs since. We seem to get around there really good.

"I remember going there my first year running with the ASCS National Tour and it was one of my first tracks. I learned what the car liked and how to drive it. That's the main thing is trying to drive the track correctly."

Dover has recorded top 10s at Devil's Bowl Speedway in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and twice last year. He posted a seventh-place finish during the Winter Nationals opener last season before placing third in the finale.

Dover scored a sixth-place result during his most recent ASCS National Tour race, giving him at least one top 10 in each of the last 15 years with the series.

"I feel like we've had one of our best years," he said. "Our confidence is up there and we've learned quite a bit this year. We've learned stuff with the setup and wings. I think we've learned quite a bit more than what we went there with last year and I think it's going to help."

Sides Looking for Success at Lakeside and Lake Ozark This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Oct. 13, 2020) - Jason Sides is looking forward to returning to a pair of race tracks in the Midwest this weekend.

World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series events on Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., and Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., during the Jason Johnson Classic mark the final visit to the middle of the country this season.

"We've enjoyed good results at both tracks and this is the final trip to the Midwest so we're aiming for a successful weekend," he said. "Just like always, it starts with laying down a good qualifying lap each night."

Sides finished a career-best second at Lakeside Speedway in 2013. He established a new track record and placed sixth in the A Main at Lake Ozark Speedway last year.

Sides is coming off a frustrating weekend at Port Royal Speedway during the Nittany Showdown. He qualified outside the top 15 in his group each night, which buried him in the racing program.

"Friday didn't go very well and I tried like hell the second night," he said. "We even changed cars and made a lot of steps to try to be better. I couldn't run the top in turns three and four, which really hurt us."

PACE PERFORMANCE RUSH RACING SERIES TO CLOSE OUT 2020 SEASON THIS WEEKEND AT LERNERVILLE'S "STEEL CITY STAMPEDE" WITH LATE MODEL TOUR PLUS SPORTSMAN MODS & SPRINTS
October 13, 2020
(By Mike Leone)

(Sarver, PA)...The Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC will have a tripleheader of action this weekend (October 15-17) at Lernerville Speedway for the "Steel City Stampede". The RUSH Late Model Tour finale will lead the way, while the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will battle in a Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly Series special, and the RUSH Sprint Cars in an Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series special. Practice will be held Thursday night (October 15) 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 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 seven 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."

This year's "Steel City Stampede" will be the 12th edition of this huge event that includes most of the region's racing divisions all showcased in this end of the season blowout for the region. There has only been one repeat RUSH Late Model winner and it took until last year for that to happen; past winners include Josh Holtgraver (2009), Bryan Force (2010), Butch Lambert (2011), Max Blair (2012 & 2019), Dennis Lunger, Jr. (2013), Chad Ruhlman (2014), Jacob Hawkins (2015), John Mollick (2016), John Waters (2017), and Colton Flinner (2018).

Saturday's event will pay $2,000 to-win. There will also be a $200 to-win, $150 to-start non-qualifier. The RUSH Late Models are coming off a very successful record-setting "Bill Hendren Memorial" event presented by FK Rod Ends in conjunction with Pro Fabrication as part of the "Pittsburgher 100" at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway two weeks ago.

There has yet to be a repeat winning on the 2020 RUSH Late Model Tour. The season got underway at Lernerville on June 27 when Blair won the $10,000 "Bill Emig Memorial" for the second straight year. Since then, Garret Paugh, Michael Norris, Kyle Lukon and Levi Crowl have been victorious at Pittsburgh. Will there be a sixth different winner in six events this weekend!?

One driver looking for his first Tour win of 2020 is Jeremy Wonderling. The Wellsville, NY driver enters the weekend as the points leader in both the Pace National Weekly Series and Touring Series Championships. Wonderling has never won the Weekly title; however, is poised for his third consecutive Tour title. Wonderling hasn't finished worse than sixth in any Tour race this year. While Wonderling has all but locked up the Tour Driver Championship, his lead is only 14 on the Bob Bentz-owned #60M in the Tour Car Owner Championship. Alex Ferree raced the #60M to a runner-up finish on October 2, while John Mollick was chasing after a Lernerville Big-Block Modified Championship. Completing the top 10 in Driver points are Joe Martin, Josh Ferry, Michael Duritsky, Jr., Ryan Frazee, Bill Kessler, Tony White, Mollick, and Kassidy Kamicker.

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 dash will also be run on Friday night.

Meanwhile, the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will join the "Steel City Stampede" for the seventh 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. Last year, Eric Gabany became the sixth different "Steel City Stampede" winner in as many years. Interestingly, three of the top RUSH Sportsman Mod winners in recent years, Garrett Krummert, Chas Wolbert, and Rob Kristyak, have yet to win a "Steel City Stampede" belt buckle.

The RUSH Sportsman Mods have made one visit this season to Lernerville this year on July 24 for the "RUSH Summer Showcase" when Wolbert topped a 23-car field. Wolbert has already clinched his first Hovis Weekly Series title. Kristyak, who won the Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series title, has locked up second in points. Kole Holden, Tony Tatgenhorst, and Kyle Martell sit third through fifth in points. Ayden Cipriano, who clinched the Hovis "Futures Cup" Championship, is sixth in points.

The RUSH Sprints will wrap up their third season this weekend racing for $800 to-win, $160 to-start. In their two prior Lernerville appearances this year, Jeremy Weaver won on July 24 and Jack Sodeman, Jr. won on October 2 in his RUSH Sprint Car debut. Weaver has already clinched the Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series point championship in the Hull Racing #41.

By virtue of his third consecutive Pittsburgh win this season last Saturday night, Zach Morrow vaulted to second in the Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series points. Morrow won twice at Lernerville each of the past two seasons, and would love to end 2020 victorious to clinch the runner-up spot in points for the second straight year. Steve Pedley, Andy Feil, and Brian Hartzell are third through fifth in points. Pedley won his first career feature earlier this season at Sharon Speedway.

Gio Scelzi Garners Two Top-10’s at Port Royal Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to Port Royal Speedway over the weekend for the Nittany Lion Showdown with the World of Outlaws, Gio Scelzi and KCP Racing would have one of their best outings together to date as Scelzi would pick up finishes of fourth and sixth place.

“I really think it was our best weekend as a team so far,” Gio Scelzi said. “We were quick time and second quick, made both dashes, and our fourth and sixth place finishes were really good finishes at a tough place against a really tough field.”

Friday night saw the two-day program get underway with Scelzi timing in second fastest in his qualifying group before racing to a win in his heat race.

Earning a berth in the Dash, Scelzi would pick up a sixth-place finish and take the green flag from the outside of the third row for the 25-lap feature event.

On the slick half-mile, Scelzi was able to quickly find himself battling for position in the top-five as he raced with Sheldon Haudenschild as well as PA locals Brock Zearfoss and Anthony Macri.

Keeping the Logan Contractors Supply, Inc/Aspen Aire/Royal Flooring backed No.18 up front, Scelzi would close Friday night out with a fourth-place finish.

Saturday night brought on the final appearance of the year in PA for Scelzi and company, and the Fresno, CA driver would get his night kicked off in fine form as he earned quick time honors in qualifications.

Just as he did on Friday night, Scelzi would pick up the win in his heat race before tallying a third place finish in the Dash.

Lining up in the second row for the 30-lap feature event, Scelzi would again go toe-to-toe with the best from the World of Outlaws as well as the best of the PA Posse local contingent.

Scelzi would again find himself battling with the likes of Haudenschild, Zearfoss and Macri, as he would again do a great job of keep his entry in contention. When the checkered flag flew on the weekend, Scelzi would pick up his 13th Top-10- with KCP Racing in what was his 26th start with the team by way of his sixth-place result.

“We continue to learn a lot with our racecar, and after our performance at the Tuscarora 50 a couple of weeks ago, we were leaps and bounds better this weekend,” Scelzi noted.

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-26, Wins-0, Top-5’s- 9, Top 10’s-13

ON TAP: Scelzi and KCP Racing will be in action on Friday night at Lakeside Speedway, and on Saturday night at Laze Ozark Speedway.

Austin McCarl Records Trio of Top-10’s with Roth Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting the call to pilot the famed Roth Motorsports No. 83jr in Hanford, CA for the Morrie Williams Tribute, Austin McCarl with pick up a trio of Top-10 finishes at Keller Auto Speedway.

“All in all, I would say Hanford, CA went pretty well,” Austin McCarl said. “Night one was a little tricky in a new car and on an extremely slick surface. We had really good speed, we just missed the set up in the feature event.”

Friday night saw the Altoona, IA driver make his debut with the Fresno, CA based team, and he would things kicked off by timing the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co. backed No. 83jr in sixth quickest in time trials.

Racing his way to a heat race win on the slick surface, McCarl would earn a spot in the redraw where the two-pill put him on the front row of the feature event.

As the night went on the track would continue to slick off, and ultimately take on rubber in the feature event. When the race came to life, McCarl would find himself in third as he searched for grip on the slick surface.

Slipping back to fifth, McCarl would actually fall as far back as seventh as rubber started to come in on the bottom side of the speedway. Changing his line and getting into the rubber, McCarl would settle back into fifth. Continuing to hold down a spot inside the Top-5, McCarl would slip back to sixth with five to go where he would go on to finish.

Saturday night brough on a King of the West sanction, and a unique format that would see the field run two 20-lap feature events.

McCarl would get off to a great start as he earned quick time honors, raced to a heat race win, and won the Dash to put himself on the pole of the first 20-lap feature event.

Leading the first eight laps of the feature, a lap nine restart would see McCarl fall back to the fourth position. Trying to get back into rhythm, McCarl would slip back to eighth during the duration of the 20-lap affair and would find himself in the 12th starting position for the second 20-lap feature.

Making some adjustments during the intermission, McCarl would work his way forward in the second feature. Cracking the Top-10 by the sixth lap, McCarl would continue to race his way forward and take over the fifth position with just three laps left in the race.

Holding on to fifth, McCarl would cap his weekend in California off with a Top-5 during the second feature of the Morrie Williams Tribute.

“Night two started off great by going quick time, winning the heat and the dash,” McCarl added. “During both 20-lap feature, neither went the way that we would have liked, but it was great to get a Top-5 in the second feature. It was a great experience to race in California, and I am extremely thankful for the opportunity that Dennis and Teresa Roth, as well as Todd Ventura provided me. I am hopeful we can do it again in the future.”

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

ON TAP: Roth Motorsports’ CA team is TBD on their next event.

Sean Becker Second Overall at Morrie Williams Tribute

PETERSEN MEDIA- Back aboard the Monhoff Racing No. 35 over the weekend in Hanford, CA with a 410ci power plant bolted between the frame rails, Sean Becker would bounce back from a tough Friday night, and finish second overall at the Morrie Williams Tribute following the Twin-20 Lap feature events.

“It was a fantastic weekend, and I am so grateful to Steve Scott for allowing us to run his 410ci engine so we could be a part of such a special event,” Sean Becker said. “Friday night we ate a huge slice of humble pie and got whipped by every car that competed against us. Saturday night things went much better, and I owe it all to Dan Monhoff and Steve.”

The weekend came to life at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA on Friday night, and it would be a rough start to the weekend for the team. Timing in 13th fastest, Becker would ultimately be credited with a 23rd place finish in the main event.

With the crew working through the day on Saturday, things would go much better that night as Becker timed in 7th fastest with the King of the West Series.

Running fourth in his heat race, ‘The Shark’ would take the green flag for the first 20-lap feature event from the 10th starting position.

On a slick Keller Auto Speedway surface, Becker was able to immediately start carving his way forward against a very stout field of drivers assembled in central California.

Cracking the Top-5 in just six laps, Becker would make a nice move at the halfway point to take over the third position. Battling hard with the likes of Blake Carrick and Mitchell Faccinto, Becker would move into second on the 15th lap, before being put back to third a lap later.

When the checkered flag was displayed on the first feature, Becker would finish third, and find himself back in the 17th starting position for the second 20-lap feature event.

Following the 10-minute intermission, Becker would continue to flex his muscle against the stars and cars of the King of the West Series in the second of the Twin-20’s. Powering his way forward, Becker wasted no time moving into the Top-10 as he took over the ninth position on just the third lap of the race.

Just as he did in the first race, Becker would work his way into the Top-5 at the halfway point and moved into third with just six-laps remaining as he searched for both the race win, and the overall Morrie Williams Tribute title.

Taking the white flag in the third position, Tim Kaeding would get by Becker and knock him off the podium as Becker had to slow up for a slowing Ryan Robinson who was out of fuel, relegating him to a fourth-place finish. The pass would prove pivotal in more ways than one as it would give TK the overall title by a mere single digit over Becker.

“Dan and Steve made some incredible changes to the car that gave us the speed we needed to be competitive,” Becker added. “We were one late yellow away from a possible win, then later one lap way from being the overall event winner. What we learned from the weekend will pay huge dividends. I am so proud to be part of this team.”

Becker and Van Lare Motorsports would like to thank Pro Aggregate, All About Fire Protection, Bianchi Farms, Shark Racing Engines, CCI, Van Lare Steering Repair, and Triple X Race Co. for their support in 2020.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-33, Wins-4, Top 5’s- 15, Top-10’s- 19

ON TAP: Becker will return to the seat of the Van Lare Motorsports No. 5v this weekend in Hanford, CA for the Johnny Key Classic.

Dominic Scelzi Selected to Finish World of Outlaws Season for Roth Motorsports

Inside Line Promotions – HANFORD, Calif. (Oct. 13, 2020) – Dominic Scelzi will finish the 2020 World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series season driving the famed Roth Motorsports No. 83.

It begins this Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., prior to the Jason Johnson Classic at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., on Saturday.

“We won seven or eight races with Roth Motorsports last year,” Scelzi said. “We’ve been really good together and I’m really excited to finish the year out with them. This is a big opportunity to me. I’m excited to help them finish the World of Outlaws season and it’s helping provide me more opportunities.”

Scelzi ranks 18th in the World of Outlaws championship standings thanks to four top 10s during limited starts with the series this year.

The big news comes on the heels of one of Scelzi’s most successful weekends of the season. He picked up a win, a pair of top fives and a trio of top 10s in four features last Friday and Saturday at Keller Auto Speedway.

Scelzi piloted a sprint car for Williams Motorsports for the first time in his career on Friday. He qualified eighth quickest, won a heat race and finished fourth in the A Main after leading early.

“I took the lead on Lap 5 and led until Lap 11,” he said. “I was running around the top and it laid rubber on the bottom. I didn’t know it and went from first to third in the same corner. I tried to get back to second and slipped out of the rubber, which dropped me to fourth.”

Scelzi also led laps on Saturday during the 360ci sprint car feature. After setting quick time out of 31 drivers during qualifying and advancing from sixth to fourth in a heat race, Scelzi, who was driving his family car, won the dash to garner the pole position for the main event.

“We were really good and we led the first 15 laps,” he said. “I was running the bottom in turns one and two and the middle in turns three and four. Bud (Kaeding) got the top cleaned off and was able to rip around us so we ended up second.”

Scelzi also drove for Williams Motorsports during the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series portion of the night, which began with him qualifying eighth quickest. A third-place outing in a heat race lined him up eighth for the first of two, 20-lap features.

“I was running between sixth to eighth,” he said. “I biked up on the cushion in turns one and two. We slid to a stop and I had to restart at the back. We drove up to ninth. Then we made some changes during the 10-minute stoppage since we were too tight.”

The changes worked perfectly for Scelzi, who lined up on the inside of the sixth row for the final feature.

“We worked the bottom in turns one and two and the middle in turns three and four,” he said. “There were a couple of times when I’d pass two cars off turn two. People were struggling to stay on the bottom. We were able to slide them into turn three or we could roll the middle to the outside. The track was really, really slick and I feel like we were really good in the slick.”

Scelzi led the final handful of laps en route to his third triumph of the season. The win also came during the Morrie Williams Memorial – named in honor of the man who owned the team Scelzi drove for during the 410 races last weekend.

“It was so neat,” he said. “What was so cool about it was Friday, my first night in the car, we led laps and we were really fast. Kyle (Hirst) getting around me was a bummer, but Kyle was in the other Williams car. On Saturday Kyle won the first feature and I won the second. If you wanted to win a race you had to be in a Williams car. It’s something very special and I’ll never forget it.”

Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing Sixth at Cotton Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA- Making the trek to Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA for the Cotton Classic, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing would overcome a turbulent start to the night and come away with a sixth-place finish.

“We kind of had a tough start to the night with some issues during hot laps and before time trials, but the F&F Racing guys really worked hard and we ended up with a pretty decent night at a track that we don’t run at a ton,” Andy Forsberg said.

Enduring some issues during hot laps and having to give up their time trials spot to fix a drive train issue, Forsberg was still able to make the best of his time trial lap after going out last as he timed in 10th fastest overall aboard the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/Huggins Cams backed machine.

Lining up third in his heat race, the Auburn, CA driver would finish third and transfer directly into the 30-lap Cotton Classic feature event.

Taking the green flag from the 10th starting position on the slick surface, Forsberg was methodical after just running 41-laps in the 410ci car.

Working his way forward, Forsberg would find himself in a torrid battle with the likes of DJ Netto, JJ Hickle, and Mitchell Faccinto as they all jockeyed for Top-Five position.

When the race drew to a close, Forsberg would settle into the sixth position where he would go on to finish and bring his weekend to a close.

“These double header weekends are always tough, and when we run my car with the 410ci as well it makes for some hard work,” Forsberg said. “Thanks to everyone that makes all of this possible.”

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

ON TAP: F&F Racing is unsure of their next event at this time.

Tanner Carrick Picks Up 6th Place Finish During Second Morrie Williams Tribute Feature Event

PETERSEN MEDIA: Making his first start in a 410ci winged sprint car in over a year during his first ever appearance at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA, Tanner Carrick would close his weekend out with a sixth-place finish during the second Morrie Williams Tribute Feature on Saturday night.

“I was pleased with how the weekend went considering it was my first 410ci start in over a year, as well as my first ever visit to Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA,” Tanner Carrick said.

Taking part in a big weekend of racing action in central California, Carrick kicked the weekend off on Friday night as he timed the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed no. 83T machine in seventh fastest in time trials before winning his heat race.

Lining up fifth in the feature event after pulling the five pill in the redraw, Carrick would slip back early as he searched for grip on the extremely slick racing surface.

Falling back out of the Top-10, rubber would soon become a factor on the surface that turned abrasive. Finding the rubber as he ran in the 11th position, Carrick would hit his marks and ride the rest of the race out as he took the checkered flag in the 11th position.

Saturday night Carrick was back in Hanford, CA for the conclusion of the Morrie Williams Tribute and would get off to a bit of a slow start in time trials as he timed in 18th fastest.

Finishing fifth in his heat race, the Lincoln, CA driver would line up 15th for the first 20-lap feature of the night. Able to pick up a few spots in the rapid-fire feature event, Carrick would finish 13th and find himself in the seventh starting position for the second 20-lap feature event.

Saving his best run of the weekend for the last feature event, Carrick would find himself battling for a Top-Five position for much of the feature event. On another slick surface, Carrick would close his weekend out with a sixth-place run.

“I have to thank Clark and my guys for their hard work, again,” Carrick said. “They were on point, and I feel like I got better on my end each time we went out.”

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: 29, Wins: 3, Top 5’s: 14, Top 10’s: 21

ON TAP: Carrick is now slated for Saturday night’s Johnny Key Classic in Watsonville, CA.

Hill Excited to Close Out Her Season This Weekend at Devil's Bowl Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - SIX NATIONS, Ontario, Canada (Oct. 12, 2020) - Alex Hill is looking to continue her recent momentum with a strong finish to the season this weekend at one of her favorite events and tracks.

The 47th annual Winter Nationals will be held at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, on Friday and Saturday to wrap up the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour season.

"I've always enjoyed racing at Devil's Bowl and I'm looking forward to finishing our season there," she said. "I was disappointed when our race there earlier this year was canceled so I'm especially glad we can race there this weekend."

Hill is hoping to build on her most recent event - the Short Track Nationals - where she qualified for the A Main both nights among a field of nearly 80 drivers. That effort lifted her into the top 10 in the championship standings going into this final weekend of racing.

"One of our goals for this year is to finish in the top 10 in points," she said. "Hopefully we can finish with a strong weekend and stay in the top 10.

"The ending to this year has kind of been the opposite of last year. In 2019, we were in the top 10 in points for most of the year until we had a couple of bad weekends in the last month and dropped out. This year we've been strong recently and that's moved us into the top 10.

"I feel I've improved in my driving and that gives me more confidence. Daryl has been giving me a great car each time I'm on the track. Everything is going pretty good for us right now."

Crockett Aiming for Win During Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (Oct. 12, 2020) - Roger Crockett is focused on scoring a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour triumph this weekend during the final national event of the season.

Crockett heads to Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, on Friday and Saturday for the 47th annual Winter Nationals - an event he won last year.

"I think Devil's Bowl is fun," he said. "It can be tough to pass early on when it's wet, but it's usually pretty good. It's really technical. The driver can have a lot of input on what the car does there because the ends race so different. The back straightaway is so much higher than the front straightaway. That makes the corners race so much different. We've run well there and look forward to trying to repeat what we did last year."

Crockett finished second during the opener before he won the Winter Nationals finale last year.

"It's a fairly prestigious event," he said. "In the last five races at Devil's Bowl we've had two wins, a second and a sixth. It's been a good track for us."

Crockett enters this weekend ranked second in the championship standings.

"We've had pretty good speed most of the year," he said. "We want to finish off the year with a win. I think Devil's Bowl is a good place for us to accomplish that. We need to run well the first night and secure second in the standings. But also, we'd really like to get a win before the season finishes up."

Kerry Madsen Captures Top 10 During Nittany Showdown at Port Royal Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Oct. 12, 2020) - Kerry Madsen posted a top-10 performance last weekend during the Nittany Showdown at Port Royal Speedway.

Madsen guided the Killer Instinct Crossbows sponsored Big Game Motorsports team to a 10th-place run on Friday before a broken shock ended his night early on Saturday during a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader.

The weekend started on Friday with Madsen qualifying fifth quickest in his group. He then finished where he lined up - third - in a heat race to lock into the 10th starting position in the A Main.

"On Friday night we missed the front row by one for our heat race," he said. "We raced pretty hard and I had a good car. The same thing in the feature. The track was pretty quick. We survived some of the mayhem and ended up 10th."

Madsen began Saturday's event by timing in seventh quickest in his group.

"We got a really late draw," he said. "Usually you can go out at the end and qualify decent at Port Royal, but the track slowed down a lot. We ended up seventh and we had a tough group so it was still a pretty good time. We lost a spot early in the heat, but had a good car and got back to fourth so we were happy about that. We were pretty confident for the A Main, but with a full fuel load we were too tight and lost some ground. Once the car freed up it started coming back. We were pushing pretty hard with a few laps to go when I clipped the wall in turns one and two. It broke a front shock bolt so I had to pull in."

Madsen was running inside the top 15 when the DNF relegated him to a 24 th-place finish.

Next up for the team are World of Outlaws races on Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., and Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., for the Jason Johnson Classic.

"I've always ran really well at Lakeside so we expect to go there and do well," Madsen said. "The story of our season is that we have to put the whole night together. We're still learning each other and the race car. And we ran good at Lake Ozark early in the year so we're pretty confident."

Wilson Wraps Up All Star Season With Fifth-Place Finish at Fremont Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - FREMONT, Ohio (Oct. 12, 2020) - Greg Wilson earned a much-needed top-five result last Saturday during the season finale for the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1.

Wilson's fifth-place showing during the Jim Ford Classic at Fremont Speedway tied a bow on the All Star season, but more importantly it provided reassurance that Wilson and his Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics, DNC Hydraulics and Gear Off Road sponsored team are heading in the right direction.

"With running as poorly as we've ran lately and listening to everyone else and getting worse, we changed things to what we felt like was better and then to race better was a huge, huge confidence builder," said Wilson, who finished the season sixth in the championship standings. "It was a bit of a reality check at the same time."

Wilson opened the two-day show on Friday by qualifying 14th quickest overall and second best in his group. He then placed fourth in a heat race to lock into the 17th starting position in the main event.

"We've struggled so bad qualifying the last two months that we've been on the last row of our heat race no matter where we've been," he said. "So to go out and qualify decent and make the inversion of our heat race impressed myself a little bit. To make it through the heat race was good. It put us pretty far back in the feature.

"I had left the shop with a game plan. The track wasn't what I thought it'd be. I almost reverted back to what I used to do. I stopped myself and said follow the game plan no matter what. I did that up until we got to feature-time. Because the way the track looked I thought we'd go the other way. We had a good race. I think me and (Christopher) Bell passed each other 15 times like we were racing for the lead."

Wilson ended up with a 14th-place result.

"I went to bed that night and was thinking my plan was better than my thoughts were as far as adjustments," he said. "My plan for Saturday was to go a little farther than we were when we started Friday and then I wasn't touching the setup all night long."

Wilson qualified 14th quickest overall and quickest in his group on Saturday. He advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race and from fifth to fourth place in a dash before closing the night by maneuvering from seventh to fifth place in the A Main.

"We went out toward the tail end and we were the fastest in our group during qualifying," he said. "We transferred out of the heat race and passed a couple of cars in the dash before we lost one at the end. We didn't vary from the game plan. We were one or two adjustments from being at least a second-place car in the feature. There is a completely different attitude at the W20 shop this week.

"I've raced long enough to know you have to be careful until you can back it up. Especially when you go to a place like Fremont where we've been good. Until we race somewhere else and have a decent night doing the same thing we did at Fremont, that will be when I really feel good about it. That being said, we were at Fremont a week or two ago and missed a local show by a lot. When you do all that work in your own shop it's a huge confidence booster going into the fall and the winter to trust yourself and to know I shouldn't be dragging my feet second guessing if I feel we need to change something."

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 9 - Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio - Qualifying: 14; Heat race: 4 (3); Feature: 14 (17).

Oct. 10 - Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio - Qualifying: 14; Heat race: 3 (4); Dash: 4 (5); Feature: 5 (7).

Christopher Bell Planning to be in Attendance with POWRi

Belleville, IL. (10/12/2020) The Norman, OK. native, Christopher Bell will be in attendance for the Donnie Ray Crawford Sooner-State 55 this coming weekend Thursday, October 15th at Port City Raceway. Bell will be aiming at the top prize of $5,555 while enduring 55 laps around the bullring.

Looking back at the history books, the last time the well-known Oklahoma native joined the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League was back in June of 2019. Of course, in no other fashion, Bell took the Tucker-Boat Motorsports, Pristine Auction, Spike/Toyota No. 84 to victory lane at Lincoln Speedway in Lincoln, IL. Port City Raceway is what Bell considers to be his home track, and where it all started. His last visit to the historic raceway dates back to March 2019. Jonathan Beason and Bell fought wire to wire and the end resulted in a wild finish with Beason winning by a hair.

Bell now resides in the top series in NASCAR but got his start in the midgets with none other than the Keith Kunz-Curb Agajanian Motorsports team. After many victorious years, Bell teamed up with Tucker-Boat Motorsports in 2019 and added win #29 to his belt with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League. Being full time in the NASCAR series occupies a lot of his time, but in his free time Bell will come back to his roots and hop back behind the wheel in a sprint car or midget.

Catch Christopher Bell and move POWRi Midget drivers in action this coming Thursday, October 15th at Port City Raceway. Alongside the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget league and the POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League, the POWRi Engler Machine and Tool Outlaw 600cc Micros will also be in attendance.

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 12, 2020) – Joining the infamous Pennsylvania Posse and World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, Tony Stewart and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing put together a respectable performance in the Keystone State during the recent weekend, capping the two-day Nittany Showdown at the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” with a pair of main event starts and highlighting their efforts with a 13th-place finish on Friday, October 9.

The three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee earned his way into the two-day headliner with a third-place finish during the Last Chance Showdown, forced to compete in the consolation after missing a transfer spot in his particular heat race.

I can’t thank my team enough for all of their hard work. I know I say this a lot, and I’m sure everyone else does, too, but I have the hardest working team in the pit area.

Matt Westfall sweeps Roll the Dice opener at I-96 Speedway

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (October 12, 2020) – It was a weekend to remember for Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports, not only securing their fourth victory of the 2020 season, but doing so in dominating fashion during Great Lakes Traditional Sprints (GLTS) competition at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan.

Westfall, driver of the Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car, acquired his weekend victory during the Roll the Dice Invitational opener on Friday night, October 9, and snagged a $1,500 payday in the process; Westfall and Ray Marshall’s second I-96 Speedway win since September 25. Impressive enough, Westfall swept the entire program, first setting the fastest time during qualifying time trials then winning his respective heat race.

Nearly sweeping the entire weekend, Westfall concluded his visit to I-96 for the Roll the Dice Invitational with a third-place performance on Saturday, forced to recover from an early incident that resulted in Westfall climbing from the tail to finish on the podium.

“What a weekend,” Westfall said, who owns victories at Gas City I-69 Speedway and Kokomo Speedway in addition to his pair at I-96 Speedway. “That was a lot of fun. We had some recent success at I-96, so we had a pretty solid notebook already built up around that place. We were fast right out of the box and that ended up being the theme for much of our weekend. I just can’t say enough about everyone involved, Ray Marshall included. He gives us what we need to be competitive and I’m grateful for the opportunity to be a part of his race team.”

Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will continue their 2020 campaign with a pair of Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) starts in the Volunteer State, concluding the Series schedule at the Mountain View Raceway in Spring City, Tennessee, on Friday and Saturday, October 16-17. Certainly foreign territory, the trip to Tennessee will be a first for Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports in 2020.

Danny Dietrich scores Outlaw podium during Nittany Showdown opener

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (October 12, 2020) – “Double-D” Danny Dietrich was just one position shy of a World of Outlaws triumph on Friday night at the Port Royal “Speed Palace,” opening the two-day Nittany Showdown at Port Royal Speedway with a runner-up performance after starting in the exact same position. Forced to chase Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson the entire distance, Dietrich had an opportunity to overtake the top spot during a late restart, but the mission was missed. The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native earned his way into the feature program by winning his respective heat race, eventually finishing second in the evening’s dash.

Although missing the top-ten, Dietrich’s route to finish 13th during the Nittany Showdown finale was most impressive, first winning the evening’s Last Chance Showdown before rallying from 21st to settle into 13th. The former Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway champion was forced to compete in the Last Chance Showdown after finishing tenth in his Saturday night heat race; an issue with tire bleeders caused Dietrich to lose any potential to transfer.

“I think we were good enough to get Larson on Frida, we just didn’t have enough opportunities to make it work,” Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, No. 48 sprint car. “Saturday’s outcome was a far cry from what we were working toward, but regardless, it was a good recovery and I’m proud of our efforts. We’re heading back to Lincoln on Saturday so we’ll do what we can to get a win there.”

Danny Dietirch and Gary Kauffman Racing will help Lincoln Speedway close their doors for the season with Champions Night on Saturday, October 17. Dietrich is a seven-time winner in the Pigeon Hills in 2020, most recently sweeping the Bob Leiby Memorial double feature program on September 5. Still three victories shy of his 2019 total, Dietrich will enter the Lincoln Speedway finale with 12 wins on the season, two against Tony Stewart’s All Stars.

Michael 12th with All Stars during Ford Classic opener at Fremont

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FREMONT, Ohio (October 12, 2020) – An event circled on his calendar since its announcement, the “Texas Traveler” T.J. Michael spent the recent weekend competing in the two-day Jim and Joanne Ford Classic at Fremont Speedway, joining Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions for their final program of the 2020 season. Certainly no stranger to action with “America’s Series,” Michael highlighted his weekend at “The Track That Action Built” with a 12th-place finish on Friday, October 9, solidifying his spot in the 35-lap preliminary with a third-place outcome during his respective heat race.

Despite a solid start to their weekend, T.J. Michael and Michael Motorsports missed main event competition during the $10,000-to-win Ford Classic finale on Saturday, October 10. Buried in the B-Main, a stout field and tricky track conditions made it too difficult to recover; Michael finished 12th.

With his race team headquartered in Fremont, Ohio, the Plano, Texas-native has been an active participant with the traveling All Stars, underlined with a top-ten during Attica Ambush action over Labor Day weekend.

“We’re getting more and more comfortable at Fremont and that makes my job a lot easier. We didn’t have the results we were looking for on Saturday, but we won’t let that take away our finish on Friday,” Michael said, driver of the Michael Motorsports, Advanced Architectural Stone, Crown Battery, Fremont Fence Company, Pro-Tech Services, Wood Heating and Air Conditioning, Kear’s Speed Shop, Wings Unlimited, Big D’s Pizza, No. 8M sprint car. “I’m not sure what we have planned ahead. We may head to Kokomo in two weeks but only time will tell. Regardless, it was a fun year and we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished.”

The “Texas Traveler” will continue, and possibly conclude, his 2020 season with a visit to Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Indiana, on Saturday, October 24. Michael will join the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series during his visit to the Hoosier State, working hard to extend his stat sheet and accomplish a top-ten with the Greatest Show On Dirt.

Donny Schatz highlights Nittany Showdown weekend with top-ten on Friday

Dates: Friday and Saturday, October 9th-10th Event: Nittany Showdown Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Track: Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pennsylvania) Donny Schatz A-Main Finishes (Start): Friday: 7th (5th) Saturday: 11th (16th)

2020 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: 6568 points | Third (68-points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 12, 2020) - Ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz, kept his season rolling in the right direction with another stout performance in Pennsylvania Posse Country, this time finishing no worse than 11th during the two-day Nittany Showdown at Port Royal Speedway on Friday and Saturday, October 9-10. Schatz, a former Nittany Showdown winner at the “Speed Palace,” highlighted his weekend in Central Pennsylvania with a seventh-place outing during the Friday night opener; he started fifth.

Ultimately qualifying for the evening’s dash, Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Advance Professional/Carquest Auto Parts/Technet Professional Automotive Service/Ford Performance/Mobil 1/Sage Fruit/Curb Records/Absolute Automation & Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Digital Ally/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, kicked-off his Friday night at Port Royal with the fastest qualifying time in Flight A, following that act with a win during his respective heat race. Schatz’ near-perfect evening continued with a fifth-place finish during the evening’s dash, soon followed by his aforementioned seventh-place feature result.

Although unable to match his Friday night outcome, the Fargo, North Dakota-native managed to put together another impressive performance and eventually rallied from 16th to finish 11th during the $15,000-to-win Nittany Showdown finale. A fourth-place result during his Saturday night heat race secured his place in the weekend’s final A-Main.

Trailing the World of Outlaws championship lead by a mere 68 markers, Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their 2020 campaign with a two-day trip through Kansas and Missouri on Friday and Saturday, October 16-17. The Greatest Show On Dirt will visit Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, on Friday, followed by the second annual Jason Johnson Classic at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Missouri, on Saturday. The weekend pair will award a total winner’s share equaling $25,000; $10,000 on Friday and $15,000 on Saturday.

Donny Schatz will enter the Kansas/Missouri double third in the World of Outlaws championship standings padded by five Series victories in 2020, two of which amounting to $100,000; the $25,000 Silver Cup at Lernerville and the $75,000 National Open at Williams Grove Speedway.

 

 

EDDIE TAFOYA WRAPS UP INDIANA PORTION OF THE 2020 SCHEDULE

(Chino, CA, October 10, 2020) When the COVID crisis forced young Southern California sprint car racer Eddie Tafoya Jr., to hit the highway to Indiana for most of his racing in 2020, nobody had any idea what the outcome would be. Competing in the USAC National Series against the best traditional sprint car drivers in the world, Tafoya surprised many and garnered a lot of media attention with his determined efforts in the “Hoosier State.”

The last sojourn to Indiana saw the likable Chino Hills, California resident compete four times in the second half of September. Things started off at the Terre Haute Action Track on September 18th. In his first appearance on the big, fast intimidating half-mile in July, he missed the transfer spot to the B Main by two positions. This time it was different as he transferred straight from his heat race into the A Main. Starting on the front row of the heat, the 23-year-old led most of the eight-lapper before being passed by two multi-time USAC champions. He ended up third in the heat and followed that up with a 20th in his first-ever main event on the Action Track.

One night after Terre Haute, Tafoya and the Specialty Fasteners team journeyed to Haubstadt, Indiana’s Tri-State Speedway. The last time at Tri-State, he fought hard in the B-Main and slipped in and out of the final transfer positions before missing his ticket to the “big dance” by two spots. That did not happen this time. Qualifying 21st out of 31-cars, a sixth-place finish in his heat race planted him in the B Main. He again put on a show in the B snatching the final transfer spot to the main event. In the Main, he started 22nd and advanced forward to finish 18th.

Tafoya wheeled the #51T into Gas City I-69 Speedway on September 25th. That night resulted in a disappointing eighth-place finish in the C Main.

Tafoya’s final night in Indiana for the season came on September 26th. For part of that night, all eyes at the track and those on the Flo Racing live stream were on him. However, it did not start out that way. Forty-two cars showed up for the race and Tafoya qualified 41st. The team simply missed the setup for qualifying and the car was to fast for the track. In hindsight, that ended up being a blessing for the thousands watching at Kokomo and around the world on Flo.

The qualifying hiccup meant Tafoya was starting in the back all night long. In his eleven car, eight-lap heat race, he started dead last and finished eighth. That meant he had to go to the C Main where he would start in the last row. It was 10-cars, going 10-laps and only the top four would move to the B Main. Much to the delight of the crowd, Tafoya sliced and diced his way all the way to a third-place finish and an automatic ticket into the B.

The B Main would be a whole different ballgame. It presented a tougher and larger field of drivers and cars. It was only 12-laps and only the top six would move into the A Main. Nineteen cars started the race and Tafoya was once again in the back row (row 10). Once the green flag dropped, he was the show. He deftly started picking off more experienced drivers one by one. As the laps wound down, the focus was all on the #51T. He worked his way up to seventh late in the race and made his move for the final transfer spot in turn one. He steered under the sixth-place car and was about to make the pass when the rear end came around and he slid to a stop. He had to go to the back for the restart and with virtually no time to get back to a transfer spot, he finished 11th. As frustrating as that was for him, the determined and skillful drive through the pack permanently etched his name into the minds of the fans watching.

Tafoya’s 12 races in Indiana competing against the top stars in traditional sprint car racing was a valuable experience. The 2018 Perris Auto Speedway Young Gun Champion and 2019 USAC/CRA and USAC Southwest Series Champion learned valuable lessons and competed well. He will be a force to be reckoned with when the 2021 racing season begins on the West Coast. Local fans will be incredibly happy when they see how much he has learned as a driver.

Even though he is done with the Indiana portion of his schedule, he is not finished yet. Tafoya and the #51T will be one of the entries when the USAC/CRA and USAC Southwest Series take over the Arizona Speedway on November 13th and 14th for the 53rd Annual Western World Championships.

Tafoya and his team would like to thank the following sponsors for being a part of the 2020 racing effort. Specialty Fasteners, Circle Track Performance, Sprint Car Driving Experience, DRC Chassis, Ryder Racing Engines, and Benic Enterprises.

Reutzel Seeks to Secure Another All Star Title this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (October 9, 2020) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team finish off a third consecutive season with the All Star Circuit of Champions at this weekend’s Jim and Joanne Ford Classic at Ohio’s Fremont Speedway.

And the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car team also hope to put the finishing touches on a third consecutive series championship.

After capturing the series title over each of the past two seasons, Reutzel and the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment team take a 74-point lead into the weekend that includes events on both Friday and Saturday.

Simply finishing an average of 18th or better each night will secure a third consecutive series crown for the team.

“We just have to race our race on both nights and take care of business,” Reutzel says going into the weekend. “Ideally, we could finish it off with another win or two.”

Ten of Reutzel’s 14 overall wins in 2020 have occurred in All Star Circuit of Champions competition, including a July 5 Ohio Sprint Speedweek triumph at Fremont Speedway after posting a runner-up finish atop the Ohio dirt oval the previous night.

Reutzel enters the weekend after taking on the World of Outlaws last weekend at Williams Grove Speedway’s “National Open” where he posted a strong fourth-place finish in Friday’s preliminary and was on the move from 16th in Saturday’s $75,000-to-win main event until debris forced a helmet change and then later mechanical issues cut the run short.

Reutzel and the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspension/Fischer Body Shop team look to finish out the All Star Circuit of Champions portion of the 2020 season in strong form at Fremont Speedway this weekend.

2020 Quick Stats: 77 races, 14 wins, 37 top-fives, 50 top-tens.

Next Up: All Star Circuit of Champions at Fremont (OH) Speedway on Friday and Saturday.

Bacon Bags Third USAC Sprint Car Title – Eyes Leffler Memorial & Harvest Cup this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (October 9, 2020) – “The Macho Man” finished out the 2020 USAC Sprint Car season in the same way in which he started it. In victory lane.

And with it, last Saturday’s triumph at Lawrenceburg Speedway’s Fall Nationals, came a third career USAC National Sprint Car championship for Brady Bacon and the 12th for the Hoffman Racing No. 69 Sprint Car team.

“Obviously, the dynamics are a little different than the first two, so this one is probably, actually, a little bit sweeter,” Bacon revealed. “A little more of the weight of the responsibility fell on my shoulders and my guys for this one at my shop. We built this team with supporters that have been with me for a long time – Fatheadz Eyewear, who’s been with me for 10 years; there’s Mike and Megan Eubanks, who have been with me forever, just a lot of people. Gene Franckowiak’s been with us for a few years. We have some newer people who are playing a bigger part now as well and it’s just great to reward them with a championship. That’s the sweetest part, rewarding the people that make it possible.”

After timing in third quickest among his qualifying group, Bacon made a crucial late-race pass for the fourth and final transfer position that secured a front row outside starting position for the $10,000-to-win series season finale.

Bacon went on to capture his sixth series win of the year aboard the Fatheadz Eyewear entry and 12th overall to secure a third USAC Sprint Car crown when it seemed in question as season’s midway point.

“At one point, I didn’t think we really had a shot,” Bacon admitted. “Grant had pulled out to such a big lead and was really consistent, and typically once that happens, it’s hard to chip away. He had a lot of things happen all at once and that’s when we got on a roll.”

With that title tucked away, action resumes for Bacon this weekend with a pair of USAC Midget events aboard the Hayward Motorsports Oilfire No. 19 at Friday’s Jason Leffler Memorial at Wayne County Speedway in Wayne City, IL, and then Saturday’s Harvest Cup at Haubstadt, Indiana’s Tri-State Speedway. Bacon will also be in MSCS Sprint Car action on Saturday aboard the Longworth No. 410.

Brian Brown Bringing Out Fresh Car and Engine for Nittany Showdown

Inside Line Promotions - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (Oct. 8, 2020) - Brian Brown will wrap up his six-week stay in the Northeast this weekend when he invades Port Royal Speedway for the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series' Nittany Showdown.

Brown, who raced in the 58th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open last weekend at Williams Grove Speedway, earned a podium during a World of Outlaws event at Port Royal Speedway last year.

Oct. 2 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 11; Heat race: 5 (6); Feature: 28 (18).

"We just didn't qualify as well as we wanted and that put us behind the eight ball all weekend," Brown said.

Oct. 3 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 9; Heat race: 6 (5); B Main: 4 (3); Feature: 17 (24).

"We were pretty good in the A Main and had a legitimate shot at a top 10 from 24th as we were up to 14th at one time, but I got a bit anxious a couple of times before the break and cost us a few positions," Brown said.

UP NEXT - Friday and Saturday at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa., for the Nittany Showdown with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series

"I'm looking forward to it," Brown said. "We brought out a fresh car and fresh engine. We've shown speed here in the past and I feel like we found some things that should make us even better. I'm looking forward to finishing off our East Coast trip with two good runs."

Wheeler, Mayden, Augustine, R. Bloom, Swaim, Moffett, And Pope Earn October 3rd Victories At CGS
By Stephanie Deatherage
(Photos Courtesy of JRP Racing Photos)
Cottage Grove, Oregon- For the first time since 2017, Cottage Grove Speedway would compete in the month of October. Saturday, the 3rd, had seven classes converge on the historic ¼-mile for the tenth race of the 2020 season. Divisions included Limited Sprints, IMCA Modifieds, Late Models, IMCA Sport Mods, Street Stocks, IMCA Sport Compacts, and a special appearance by Dwarf Cars.

In the Limited Sprint division, Jared Hood was the early race leader in the main event. The Grants Pass pilot held down the top spot until being overtaken shortly after a restart on the fifth trip around the track. Jesse Schlotfeldt, making the journey all the way from Arlington, Washington, was the new driver to reign supreme.

Schlotfeldt held on to the coveted position for a bit of time before Jake Wheeler got around him on lap thirteen. Wheeler, of Central Point, was not away scot free just quite yet as Schlotfeldt regained first place on the fifteenth circuit. Wheeler would once more make the pass to get to the front on lap eighteen.

Jake Wheeler led the rest of the race with no issues to go on to win his first race of the season. He is the seventh driver to capture a victory in the Limiteds at CGS in 2020. Jesse Schlotfeldt was scored second while Jared Hood ended the night in third. The rest of the top five finishers would be Thurston’s Ricky Ashley and R.J. McGahuey, of Grants Pass, in fourth and fifth place.

Dan Sheller, from Oregon City, took charge of the field in the opening stages of the IMCA Modified feature. Creswell’s Paul Culp would pass Sheller the second time around the flagpole to become the new leader. Culp kept his car in front of the pack until he was passed on lap eight.

Jake Mayden, of Springfield, was the one to overtake Culp for the point. Mayden went unchallenged the balance of the distance to score his second win at Cottage Grove this year and his third triumph overall. It was the first time since July 18th that Jake had parked his mount in victory lane.

Brian Smith, of Lebanon and running a Sport Mod, was the runner-up over third finishing Paul Culp. Paul Rea, of Eugene, wound up fourth and Hornbrook, California traveler, Duane Orsburn, was fifth.

Nathan Augustine dominated the Late Model scene come main event time. The La Pine racer took control of the front at the drop of the first green flag and remained there the entire time. He did have a brief challenge with Sweet Home’s Kye Frick after a late race caution but managed to keep him in check. Augustine is only the fifth different Late Model driver to best the field this season.

Kye Frick was a close second with third going to Lebanon veteran Randy Boyd, in the Jerry and Mandee Casey owned entry. Chuck Christian, of Eugene, placed fourth while the other Jerry and Mandee Casey machine, driven by Lebanon’s Jeff Rash, ended the evening fifth.

K.C. Scott, from Springfield, showed the way early in the IMCA Sport Mod main event. Creswell’s Ray Bloom would pass Scott on the second lap to obtain the race lead. Bloom would remain there for the rest of the distance despite several restarts and a few challenges from behind.

With the victory Bloom is the eighth driver to tame the field at “The Grove” in the current campaign. It is also his second straight win after earning his first career Sport Mod victory at Coos Bay Speedway the weekend before. Brian Smith was a valiant second with third going to K.C. Scott. Veneta youngster Gavin Ropchan ended the race in fourth place over fifth finishing Aaron Bloom, from Cottage Grove, and running his brother Dalton’s car.

The Street Stocks had a wild and crazy feature. Joshua Linville, in his Street Stock debut, was the leader from the start. Unfortunately, the Veneta veteran got caught up in an incident on the second circuit. That would hand the lead over to Taunton Swaim, from Dexter.

Swaim, the decorated Hornet racer, held on to the top spot for quite a while. He would be under constant pressure for much of the time of his reign of first place. Both Adam Applebee, of Eugene, and Redmond’s Dillon Solum were the ones hot on his heels.

Applebee would pass Swaim coming to the white, but a couple of the front runners got together resulting in both Applebee and Solum out of the contest. Taunton Swaim maintained the race lead for the ensuing green-white-checkered finish. Swaim held on to win the main in his first career Street Stock start and is the seventh driver to conquer the field this season.

Blake Lehman, of Redmond, hit the finishing line in second with third being credited to Cottage Grove’s Eric Freeman. Anthony Prather, from Keizer, got fourth while recovering to finish fifth was Joshua Linville.

In the IMCA Sport Compacts main event, Burnie Bryant took care of business. The Sutherlin driver obtained first place at the drop of the green flag and remained there when the checkered fell. It looked like it would be his third win of the season but unfortunately, he did not pass post-race tech. This resulted in a disqualification and gave the victory to Eugene’s Brad Moffett. Moffett is the sixth driver to win a Sport Compact feature this year.

Cole Trissell, of Springfield, ran second and Cottage Grove rookie Jeremy DeGroot placed third. Luther Ramy, from Eugene, ended the race fourth with fifth going to Collen Davidson, of Creswell, in his first career start.

Lastly, the Dwarf Cars were in the house with both the Northwest Dwarf Car and Southern Oregon Dwarf Car Association clubs in attendance. Come main event time Josh Rogers, from St. Helens took control of the front of the field on the start. Rogers stayed in the position until being overtaken on lap nine by Anthony Pope.

The Roseburg racer, of Pope, dominated the rest of the way and went unchallenged to score the huge win for car owner Clay Goben. Hillsboro’s John Chirsman ended the race second after starting eighteenth while third was Shane Youngren, of Tigard, both of which came from the B Main. Jimmy Brinster, from St. Helens earned fourth with fifth going to Lebanon's Danny Altom. Shane Youngren was the winner of the consolation feature.

Cottage Grove Speedway is scheduled to return to action on Saturday, October 10th. For more information and updates visit cottagegrovespeedway.com or check out the track Facebook page.

Price Happy to Put Short Track Nationals in Rearview Mirror

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 7, 2020) - Robbie Price endured a frustrating weekend that saw his night end in a B Main on consecutive evenings during the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires at I-30 Speedway.

On a track that has continuously been a thorn in the Cobble Hill, B.C., native's side throughout his racing career, Price placed ninth in a consolation race on Friday and 14th on Saturday during a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event that featured more than 75 of the top drivers in the country.

"I don't know what it is about I-30, but I just can't seem to get out of my own way at that place," he said. "Some of it is on me as a driver and some of it is maybe track conditions, but I'm pretty glad I won't have to go back for another year."

Price began the night on Friday by advancing three spots in a heat race to finish fifth before gaining two positions in a qualifier to end fifth. He lined up third in a B Main and was leading the race early before he spun in traffic. Price rejoined the field at the back and he passed several cars, but finished short of transferring.

"We were not terrible by any means, but we drew a tough pill and got buried deep in a heat race," he said. "I was running pretty well in the B Main and got myself to the lead. I just made a bad judgment call and got turned around. It's 100 percent on me as a driver and I ruined our night. The last thing you should be worrying about as a driver is mental errors and I just need to get better in that situation."

Saturday night began promisingly with a second-place outing in a heat race followed by an eighth-place finish in a qualifier. He lined up in 10 th in a B Main, but he pulled off early when the track took rubber.

"The format doesn't reward finishing second when you start second and we just need to get better at passing cars," he said. "I got together with a guy in the qualifier on the second lap and we had to come from the rear. I passed a few cars in the B Main, but by then the track was pretty much toast and we were not going anywhere so I pulled off."

Price will take this week off from racing and return to action Oct. 16-17 during the 47th annual Winter Nationals with the ASCS National Tour at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas.

"I really like Devil's Bowl and after last weekend I think all we can do is go upwards," he said. "I finished off the season terrible last year and I thought about it all winter long. Hopefully I can bring home some better results and give us something to build on as we look to next year."

Skinner Qualifies for Both A Mains at Short Track Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 7, 2020) - Marshall Skinner showcased speed throughout the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires at I-30 Speedway last weekend.

Skinner won his heat race each night and also qualified for both A Mains during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event.

"I was pretty happy to qualify for the A Main both nights, especially since I've raced way less this year than most of the drivers I was competing against," said Skinner, referring to the stout field of nearly 80 drivers. "I hated that we had the misfortune of crashing on Friday, but I was proud that we repaired the frame and rebuilt the car and we were just as fast on Saturday night."

Skinner's weekend got off to a strong start on Friday when he won his heat race from the second starting spot and then charged from sixth to third in his qualifier.

"I thought I did pretty good, but I expected to run the B Main," he said. "I was surprised that I was third in points for the night and was starting third in the A Main."

Unfortunately, Skinner's A Main run ended shortly after taking the initial green flag.

"I started on the bottom and went into turn one hard and held my line, like I would usually do," he said. "But the driver on the outside of me turned left and chopped my front end. My car started flipping and - I ain't gonna lie - I was sweating bullets because I knew the entire field was bunched up heading for me. I got clipped by one car's wing and then another drilled me. I was okay, but the car was really torn up and the right front corner of the frame was bent about four inches.

"Fortunately, my good friend, Tim Crawley, told me to bring it over to his shop in the morning and we'd get it fixed. I would've been done if it wasn't for him. A lot of other guys helped, too. I'm grateful for all of them. We got the car back on the track for hot laps on Saturday and it was just as fast as it was before the crash."

Skinner had another solid start on Saturday, winning his heat race and finishing second in his qualifier. That placed him eighth on the starting grid of Saturday night's main event.

"I thought the track would take rubber pretty early in the feature so I loosened my car up quite a bit," he said. "But it really didn't lock down until about the final five laps so I fought a loose car for about 25 laps. I dropped back a bit and finished 13th. I kind of messed up on that."

Skinner also notched a podium finish the prior Sunday during the postponed Fall Nationals at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark.

"I started second in the feature, but I missed the setup a little bit," he said. "I'll also admit I was a bit timid about running the wall, which meant rubbing the concrete wall wide open through the corners. I own every part on my car and have to replace them myself if I break any. I dropped back a spot before I got to the top and I stayed there to the finish."

The return of a former crewman has created better results on the track, according to Skinner.

"Spencer Kelso had helped me for years before he moved away a few years ago," he said. "Now he's back and helping me again. It's made a huge difference for me and I think that's the main reason I've been faster lately. Now I have some time to watch the track and focus on my driving instead of working on my car all the time."

Skinner plans on racing this Friday and Saturday with the USCS Series at Riverside International Speedway.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 27 - Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. - Heat race: 3 (9); Feature: 3 (2).

Oct. 2 - I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. - Heat race: 1 (2); Qualifier: 3 (6); Feature: 19 (3).

Williamson Rallies for Top-10 Run During Short Track Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 7, 2020) - Garet Williamson continues to impress in his rookie year with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

Over the last couple of months he's been able to compete with some of the heavy hitters with the traveling 360ci winged sprint car series. That means not only qualifying for A Mains, but also battling for top-10 and top-five finishes.

That continued in last weekend's 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires at I-30 Speedway. Williamson was fast throughout the two-day weekend, qualifying for both main events and coming away with a top-10 finish in Friday's opener.

"We are super pumped with our performance as a team," he said. "We were good all weekend, especially Friday. We had a super-fast car. Obviously, our luck wasn't very good, but other than that we had a fast car. The track surfaces were a little challenging, but we made the best of them and put it in the show. It was a really good weekend for us."

Williamson was making his first start in an event that is traditionally one of the toughest on the schedule. This year was no exception as 78 cars unloaded in the pit area looking for the $10,041 top prize on Saturday night.

Williamson started out strong by finishing third in his heat race and winning his qualifier on Friday. Things took a downward turn at the start of the feature when he suffered top wing damage from a car that flipped in front of him. Williamson went to the work area and got a new wing. After restarting at the rear, he charged up to a solid sixth-place finish.

"It shows a lot about our team," he said. "As soon as I rolled into the hot pit they were right there with a wing ready. I can't count the number of other teams there with wrenches to do whatever was needed to get me back on the track. It really shows how much of a family racing is. As a driver, that's pretty cool to see everyone come together to get me back on the track."

Williamson had plenty of momentum heading into Saturday night, but he was forced to come through the B Main to make the Short Track Nationals finale. After placing fourth in a heat race and third in a qualifier, Williamson recorded a third-place result in a B Main, which put him 18th in the main event.

The track rubbered up in a hurry and Williamson passed three cars to finish 15th.

"We've been super good and we've made some pretty big shows this year," he said. "So it's nice knowing that you have a fast car and can run with those guys. For our first year, it's pretty cool knowing that you can hang with those guys. It makes you feel better as a driver that you have the capability of going out and beating those guys."

Williamson gets another chance to shine on Oct. 16-17 when the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour completes its 2020 season at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, during the 47th annual Winter Nationals.

"We've had a pretty decent rookie year," Williamson said. "I wish we could've gotten more shows in, and I think we are going to go back to California after Devil's Bowl to hit a couple of shows. It's been a lot of fun, we learned a lot and I'm pumped. It's important to finish the season on a high note and it would be nice to end the (ASCS National Tour) year on the podium next week."

World of Outlaws Set for Annual Appearance at Lakeside Speedway on October 16

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — October 7, 2020 — The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will take to the track at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City for the 11th consecutive year on Friday, October 16. For the fourth straight season, the event will again coincide with the NASCAR weekend at Kansas Speedway, which is less than 10 miles from Lakeside Speedway.

Donny Schatz earned a historic victory last year at Lakeside Speedway as it was the first time a Ford-powered machine had won with the World of Outlaws in over 20 years. Schatz took the lead from hometown favorite Brian Brown on lap-13 and stayed out front for the rest of the 30-lap contest. For Schatz, it was his second win at Lakeside to go along with a triumph in 2015.

Daryn Pittman the 2013 Outlaws champion, won for the second time at Lakeside in 2018. The Oklahoma native won for the first time at Lakeside in 2003. Pittman will be aboard the Heffner Racing No. 72 for the event as he finishes out his final full-time season on the Outlaws tour with the Pennsylvania-based team.

Brown picked up a very popular win at Lakeside in 2017. The veteran driver, who hails from nearby Grain Valley, Mo., held off Sheldon Haudenschild and Schatz for that victory. Brown led early, before Kerry Madsen took control of the race, only to have a tire go flat, while holding nearly a nine-second lead. Brown inherited the lead at this point and went on to pick up the win.

Brad Sweet, the reigning Outlaws champion, won at Lakeside for the first time in 2016. Kerry Madsen is also a past winner at the track, who is expected to be in competition.

Sweet is the current World of Outlaws point leader, with a 40-point lead over Logan Schuchart. Sweet has won nine races this season, while Schuchart has taken the checkered flag first on six occasions.

Schatz is currently third in points, with four wins, with Haudenschild, who has six victories, in the fourth spot in the standings. Carson Macedo, the reigning Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year Award winner, rounds out the current top-five in points.

David Gravel has five wins thus far in 2020 and is sixth in points, after missing a couple of races earlier this season due to other racing commitments. Pittman is seventh in points, with Jacob Allen, who earned his long-awaited first-career Outlaws win last month, riding eighth in the standings. Parker Price-Miller is currently ninth, with Kraig Kinser rounding out the top-10. Jason Sides is just outside of the top-10. Veteran driver Bill Rose from Indiana, is also on the Outlaws tour this season.

Wayne Johnson and Mason Daniel are battling for the Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year Award this season. Johnson currently holds a slim 36-point advantage.

Crouch Makes Progress Throughout First Visit to Tri-City Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GRANITE CITY, Ill. (Oct. 7, 2020) - Brenham Crouch progressed during his debut at Tri-City Speedway last Friday.

Crouch, who was driving a Toyota Racing sponsored Keith Kunz Motorsports midget during the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League event, advanced from 23rd to 17th in the Gold Crown Midget Nationals A Main after struggling early in the night.

"It's a tough track to learn and a tough track to race," he said. "To be honest I struggled there. The rest of the team was fast, but it took me a while to get going. I think watching a few videos and replaying it through my head will help me whenever we get to go back."

Crouch made up ground early in his heat race before finishing seventh.

"I got a good start and had a good run off turn two the first lap," he said. "I would have been third or fourth going into turn three. Someone moved up and I had check up, which killed my momentum. I think I fell back to sixth. Then when I was racing for fifth it felt like every time I was hitting my marks I was racing someone and I wasn't efficient, which allowed someone else to capitalize on it. I have to clean that part of my racing up."

A broken shock ended Crouch's run in the B Main early. He used a provisional to line up last in the main event.

"I didn't feel like I could get a hold of the track," he said. "I think most of it was the driver. I've struggled on the slick on bigger tracks so I have to figure out a way to be better. Running the A Main helps with getting all of those laps so I'm excited for the next challenge."

Saturday's event finale rained out.

Crouch is scheduled to make his debut at Wayne County Speedway in Wayne City, Ill., on Friday and at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., on Saturday with the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series.

"I'm super excited for Wayne County," he said. "It's a micro track and I know how those tracks usually adjust to midgets. Tri-State looks like it will be really fun and racy as well."

Sides Heading to Port Royal Speedway This Weekend for Nittany Showdown

Inside Line Promotions - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (Oct. 7, 2020) - Jason Sides is excited to venture to another half-mile oval this weekend when Port Royal Speedway hosts the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

The Nittany Showdown runs Friday and Saturday at the dirt track in Port Royal, Pa., where Sides enjoyed a charge from the back of the pack to 10 th in October 2018. It marked his first top 10 at the track in 15 years.

"I enjoy racing on the bigger tracks these days," he said. "It's also great to go to Port Royal because of all the upgrades there in recent years. They've done a lot to make the facility top notch and we're excited to see the changes since we were there last."

Sides competed at a fellow Central Pennsylvania half-mile track last weekend during the 58th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open at Williams Grove Speedway.

"We didn't have a very good weekend," he said. "We needed to qualify better and in a big event like the National Open that has 50 other cars you're probably not going to drive through the field once you get behind. We were unable to overcome not qualifying in the first couple rows of a heat race each night."

Sides qualified 13th quickest in his group on Friday before he placed eighth in a heat race and 14th in the Last Chance Showdown. He used a provisional to tag the field in the A Main, advancing from 30th to 27th.

Saturday's event played out in similar fashion with Sides timing in 11 th quickest in his group. He finished eighth in a heat race and 15th in the Last Chance Showdown.

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 2 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 13; Heat race: 8 (7); B Main: 14 (10); Feature: 27 (30).

Wilson Aiming for Strong End to All Star Season This Weekend at Fremont Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BENTON RIDGE, Ohio (Oct. 7, 2020) - The 2020 Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 season concludes this weekend with the Jim Ford Classic at Fremont Speedway.

That's good news for Greg Wilson, who enters the two-day show running Friday and Saturday at the dirt oval in Fremont, Ohio, ranked sixth in the championship standings. Wilson and his Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics, DNC Hydraulics and Gear Off Road sponsored team have plenty of experience at the track.

"The last month or month and a half of racing has been very frustrating," he said. "I'm excited to go back because we have completely regrouped. I don't know if it will be better or not, but for the first time in a couple of months we've changed enough stuff we should see a difference."

Wilson earned a pair of top 10s, including a fourth-place run, at the track in July and he added a third-place outing in August.

"Over the years we've had a lot of success there," he said. "We grew up racing there. It's nice racing in your backyard, in a place you're familiar with. It's been good to be home recently and in my shop and in turn go to a place we're familiar with. It gives you some extra confidence that if we have our stuff together we have a very good chance of having a couple of good nights of racing. I feel like the stuff we've found and went through the last two weeks, something will be different. I'm pretty excited."

Wilson's track record has been stellar at Fremont Speedway. He was last victorious at the track in 2015 and he scored two wins in 2013 and two in 2011. In fact, Wilson has 18 top fives and 35 top 10s in 46 races at Fremont Speedway since the start of the 2011 season.

"Throughout the years when I've went to Fremont I've always had really good guys helping me," he said. "Also, I feel like Fremont is a track that by the end of the night it becomes a driver's and a mechanic's track. I've always felt like those are situations that we are strong at. Fremont fits all of that."

Wilson's first win at the track came in 1997. He also has victories there in 2000, 2005, 2006 and twice in 2008.

Cisney Set to Make Debut for Long-Time Sprint Car Owner Scott Cowman This Weekend at Port Royal

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Oct. 7, 2020) - Dylan Cisney will make his debut behind the wheel of the Scott Cowman owned winged sprint car this weekend during the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader at Port Royal Speedway.

The Nittany Showdown on Friday and Saturday presents the only two scheduled races for the new partnership this year before the team embarks upon an ambitious schedule in 2021.

"Scott has been a long-time car owner out in the Midwest," Cisney said. "He lives in Wisconsin; that's where his business and everything is. I've been using his motors for the last two years. We're going to run a part-time schedule for him next year. Most of the races we'll run for him will be centered around going to the Knoxville Nationals, which will be my first time racing in the prestigious event. In preparation for that we'll go out and run a handful of weekly shows at Knoxville Raceway (in Knoxville, Iowa). We'll also run some IRA Sprint Car Series races in his car."

Cisney plans to continue to race his No. 5 in Central Pennsylvania when he isn't piloting Cowman's race car. Both teams will be housed in Cisney's shop in Port Royal. His long-time crew chief Jim Shreiner and crew members Adam Stull and Ethan "Ebob" Goss will be joined by Cowman's crew members Rob and Zach Zorn.

"I want to thank Scott and everyone who has played a part in this opportunity," Cisney said. "I've been fortunate to have great partners with our racing team who are supportive of this opportunity that Scott has provided. A lot of people came together to make this happen and I'm grateful for their continued support."

This weekend's two-day event at Cisney's home track presented the perfect opportunity for the debut.

"Everything is pretty much identical," he said. "There are a few different options on his car, but we're sticking with the main structure of my team with X-1 Chassis, HP Engines, Penske Shocks; everything that we've been working on is staying the same.

"Really the way everything is put together it's like our team is breaking out a new car. Hopefully we can jump into this car and everything can work like how it's been."

Cisney is coming off his first career National Open A Main start last Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., where he placed 19th in the A Main during the biggest paying sprint car race of the year that drew more than 50 competitors.

Another stout field is expected this weekend at Port Royal Speedway, where Cisney ranks fourth in the championship standings. He scored a career-best third-place result during the famed Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway last month.

Top PASS points runners join Outlaws For Nittany Showdown Saturday

The PA Sprint Series will share the “Speed Palace” clay with the World of Outlaws for the Nittany Showdown Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway.

The Outlaws will be running the second night of a two-night stand at the Port, while the IMCA/RaceSaver sprinters will take part in the track’s “appreciation race” for the division, with entries limited to 26 teams entered by track points.

Atop those standings is Well Tannery racer Garrett Bard, clearly one of the favorites. Already unofficial PASS and Pennsylvania State champion and likely to add the national IMCA/RaceSaver title as well, Bard has three wins and two-runner-up finishes in the five events run at the Port in 2020 (three others were cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions).

None of which means anything to Saturday’s other competitors, other than perhaps an extra dose of determination. “Nitro” Nick Sweigart of Myerstown claimed the two wins that didn’t go to Bard this year, and his thrilling, last-lap pass to win the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge at the Port last season remains an all-time series highlight.

Equally capable of coming out on top would be 2019 PASS and IMCA/RaceSaver national champion Ken Duke Jr. of Selinsgrove, an eight-time PASS winner in 2019 and runner-up to Bard in this race, or Doug Dodson of Middletown, who finished in the top six in four of this season’s races and nearly won last year’s Keystone RaceSaver® Challenge.

Lady racers Kassidy Kreitz and Erin Statler landed themselves a shot at the win with an impressive 4th and 5th position in track points which is a significant feat given the number of drivers that have tried to earn a spot in this most sought after event. Statler is the guest on this weeks PA Sprint Series Podcast.

Scenarios could be assembled that would give as many as a dozen other drivers a more-than-reasonable chance at the top spot Saturday in which should be a tremendously competitive race.

Division sponsor Penns Valley Meat Market will award its $100 Hard Charger Award in addition to the regular event purse. Penns Valley is already on board to significantly boost their support of the Keystone RaceSaver® Challenge in two weeks.

Gates open at 1:00 p.m. for Saturday’s program, with racing scheduled to begin at 5:00. Adult general admission is $30 ($35 for reserved seats), with students 12-17 admitted for $20 and kids under 12 free. Pit fee is $40.

On Friday, October 16, PASS will return to BAPS Motor Speedway as a lead division for the first night of the 17th Annual Sunoco/Insinger Nationals Fueled by Miller’s Race Parts. The RaceSaver teams will run a full regular program, plus a make-up feature that was rained out on August 1.

The Keystone RaceSaver Challenge, part of the “Blue Collar Classic,” will conclude the season on Saturday, October 24. More information about this special race and to sponsor visit KeystoneRaceSaverChallenge.com..

Amantea Overcomes Mechanical Woes for Top 15 in Skyscraper Spectacular

Inside Line Promotions - SWEDESBORO, N.J. (Oct. 6, 2020) - Joey Amantea battled back from adversity to score a 14th-place finish during the Danny Serrano Skyscraper Micro Sprint Spectacular at Spirit Auto Center Speedway on Sunday night.

Amantea's weekend appeared to be over after he damaged an engine following only one lap of qualifying during the Friday night opener for the three-day event.

"We made the best out of a really bad situation and I'm pretty proud of that," he said. "We could've easily packed it in and given up, but we found a way to make it work."

Following an overnight three-hour drive to get a backup engine, Amantea and his crew replaced the engine in time to compete on Saturday night. He finished third and fourth, respectively, in a pair of heat races to place him 15th in passing points heading into the Sunday night finale paying $4,000 to win.

"We were pretty out to lunch in the first heat and we were just really lost," he said. "We made a big change for the second heat and it paid off big and put us in a decent position for the Sunday finale."

Amantea secured a lock-in position into the main event by finishing second in a heat race on Sunday. He started 24th on the grid and advanced 10 positions to finish 14th.

While it was short of his goal of finding Victory Lane and outside of the top 10, Amantea is extremely proud of his team's effort considering all they went through just to get into the feature.

"We were able to get ourselves in the show and salvaged a top-15 finish," he said. "You'd always like to finish better and with a little more time we had a top-10 car. However, with everything we went through last weekend, just getting into the show was a win and we're leaving feeling good."

Next up for Amantea is a two-race week featuring a trip to Shelhammer Dirt Track in Shoemakersville, Pa., on Wednesday night to compete in his wingless micro sprint followed by a trip to Big Diamond Speedway in Minersville, Pa., on Friday to race with the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars. The sprint car event will showcase a pair of twin-20 features and will be Amantea's final 360 sprint car races of the season.

"I'm really excited to get back behind the wheel of the sprint car and we've got two chances to park it in Victory Lane," he said. "At the beginning of the year I would've told you I'd be happy just being out there, but with the speed we've shown and with all I've learned we're looking for a finish toward the front to close out this year."

Hagar Wins Short Track Nationals Opener Before Posting Career-Best Second-Place Result During Finale

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 6, 2020) - Derek Hagar captured the Short Track Nationals preliminary night for the second straight year last Friday at I-30 Speedway.

He followed that up by producing a career-best runner-up result during the finale of the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires on Saturday at I-30 Speedway.

"I think next year is going to be even better," he said. "We're building a lot of momentum not just for the Short Track Nationals but next season as a whole. We're getting a cushion to work with to update our program to get not only a second motor but hopefully a third."

Hagar was one of 75-plus drivers to tackle the two-day Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event. He kicked off the action on Friday by maneuvering from fourth to second place in both a heat race and a qualifier. That gave him the most points and the pole position for the 25-lap main event.

"We had a decent pill draw that put us on the second row outside in the sixth heat race," he said. "We were able to get up to second and hold onto second. For the qualifier we had a good run and I felt faster than Blake Hahn. Right when I got past him for the lead we had a red flag. He took my line on the restart so we settled for second. That gave us enough points to be on the pole for the feature. You had to be on top of your race car because if you weren't it'd take control. The cushion was pretty gnarly on the entry of both corners. It took forever to get the feature started. Once we got going I wasn't challenged too much. I found a line on the bottom of turns three and four that worked good for me."

Hagar led the distance for his eighth victory of the season and his first ASCS National Tour triumph since September 2014.

"It's been awhile," he said. "We know our team is good and we can compete with the best of them. We just don't have the opportunity to go out and do it a lot. It does make us feel good to be competitive and win races when we compete with the ASCS National Tour drivers."

The strong weekend continued on Saturday as Hagar won a heat race from the pole and a qualifier from third. He placed third in the dash to line up on the inside of the second row for the A Main.

"We got a good start and led every lap of the heat race," he said. "We won the qualifier and that put us second in points. I drew the No. 3 for the dash and finished third. We felt a little bit of rubber go down. We anticipated it would get locked down for the feature. We were way too free the whole race. I was just holding on. I got up to second late in the race. It was a good run, but it was disheartening knowing we had a fast car all weekend."

Hagar's runner-up result was his 11th podium of the season and his third second-place showing.

He plans on returning to action this Friday and Saturday at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., with the USCS Series.

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 2 - I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. - Heat race: 2 (4); Qualifier: 2 (4); Feature: 1 (1).

West Jr. Soaks Up Heat Race Win and Experience at First Short Track Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 6, 2020) - Jeffrey West Jr. earned his second career Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour heat race victory on Saturday to kick off the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires finale at I-30 Speedway.

West Jr. maintained the top spot from his pole position, which marked his third heat race win during his rookie season in a 360ci winged sprint car.

"The heat race win was awesome," he said. "We had the car dialed in perfectly for that. I could drive it how I wanted to. That was a big statement to show that we're there to compete and we can hang with the big boys, especially for my first year in a 360. That was huge even though it's just a heat race."

A sixth-place finish in a qualifier was followed by an 11th -place result in a B Main.

"In the qualifier we started third and I stayed in third the first five laps," he said. "Then we had a caution halfway. I guess the air pressure bled off too much. The handling went away after that and we faded toward the end. And then in the B Main the track was really slick and on the edge of fixing to rubber up. It ended up rubbering up in the middle of that B Main. The car wasn't exactly right for that so that was the main deal. Overall, I was still happy."

The two-day event, which featured more than 75 drivers, began on Friday with West Jr. finishing third in a heat race. He then advanced from eighth to sixth place in a qualifier, which lined him up on the outside of the second row for a B Main.

"I was able to finish third and hold our position in the heat race," he said. "The track was hammer-down fast. It made it difficult to pass because everyone is pretty much wide open. I was happy to finish third, racing against the best in the country. The car was decent in the qualifier. As the track faded off a little bit we lost a little with the setup. Then in the B Main I hit a big hole in turn one on the start. That sent me flying off the track. I had to restart back in 16th or 17th. I think if that wouldn't have happened that race goes a little different and maybe I could have passed someone to get into a transfer. Overall, I was happy with Friday."

West Jr. rallied from the back of the pack following the early incident to post a ninth-place finish.

Another bit of bright news coming out of the event, which was also sanctioned by the ASCS Mid-South Region, is that West Jr. finished third in the ASCS Mid-South Region championship standings and he won the Rookie of the Year Award.

Hill Generates Career-Best Short Track Nationals Performance

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 6, 2020) - Alex Hill enjoyed her career-best COMP Cams Short Track Nationals with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour last weekend at I-30 Speedway.

Hill qualified for the A Main on both Friday and Saturday night, and she made progress in each of the seven races she competed in during the 33 rd annual event, which welcomed more than 75 drivers.

"I was really happy with the way things went," said Hill, who had found the Arkansas bullring challenging in previous years. "Except for the crash in the feature on Friday, it was a really good weekend for us."

Hill credited some extra track time, a relative lack of misfortune and a well-prepared car for her displays of speed each time she was on the track.

"I got to practice there on Thursday night this year," she said. "I've never been able to do that before because I've had school. I think that helped a lot. Also, we drew pretty well this year, especially on Friday.

"I had a great car each time I was on the track. I'm grateful to Daryl and Nick for that."

Hill's weekend got off to a solid start on Friday when she won her heat race from second and then finished fourth in her qualifier after starting sixth. She rolled off ninth on the A Main starting grid.

"We were doing really well and were battling for fourth around Lap 15 when I got a little too low in the turn and hit the infield tire and flipped," she said. "That was really frustrating for me because everything had been going so well up to that point and we had a shot at a top-three finish."

Hill was unable to finish the race and was credited with a 13th -place finish, which is her career-best result at the track.

On Saturday, Hill raced from seventh to fourth in her heat race and she finished sixth in her qualifier after starting seventh. While she fell a few spots short of qualifying for the A Main when she finished sixth in a B Main, she and Mark Smith earned the final two starting positions into the prestigious main event by being the top two drivers in passing points for the weekend who didn't qualify through on Saturday.

"I was proud of our team for earning a spot in Saturday's A Main due to our overall performance for the weekend," she said. "Unfortunately, the track wasn't very racy in the A Main and took rubber. But we were still able to move up a few positions and finish 16th."

Hill, who climbed into the top 10 in the ASCS National Tour championship standings, will be idle from racing this weekend before competing in the 47 th annual Winter Nationals at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, on Oct. 16-17 with the ASCS National Tour.

Old School Racing's Tankersley Going for Second Straight Win at Monarch Motor Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - HIGHLANDS, Texas (Oct. 6, 2020) - Channin Tankersley is looking to back up his victory at Monarch Motor Speedway this Saturday during a Sprint Car Bandits event.

The Old School Racing driver recorded his first career win during his most recent visit to the dirt oval in Wichita Falls, Texas, on May 9.

"I just hope we can do decent," he said. "We're looking at trying to have a strong weekend. There's been times this year we've had really good speed and times we've struggled. We're trying to power through it."

Tankersley's most recent appearance at the oval produced a clean sweep as he won both a heat race and the main event.

"It's a really nice facility," he said. "It's more like 'The Ditch' with more of an Eldora facility. I think it used to be like a NASCAR asphalt track that they converted to dirt. It's like a small quarter mile. It has moderate banking. It has some width to it so you're not all over people."

Tankersley enters Saturday's show ranked fifth in the Sprint Car Bandits championship standings despite not attending all of the races this season. He has two triumphs - winning at Heart O' Texas Speedway in Waco, Texas, on July 10 to go along with the victory at Monarch Motor Speedway - in four starts with the series this year. His two other results were third and second, respectively.

Bogucki Records Career-Best Short Track Nationals Result With Ninth-Place Showing

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 6, 2020) - Scott Bogucki scored his career-best result during the famed Short Track Nationals last Saturday, posting a ninth-place outing at I-30 Speedway.

The SawBlade.com sponsored driver was efficient throughout the 33 rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires, which featured more than 75 drivers. Bogucki kicked off the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event by advancing from fifth to third place in a heat race before he won a qualifier on Friday. Bogucki ranked fourth in points to line up on the outside of the second row for the main event.

"It's the best I've ever been there," he said. "We could have won the first night. I got through the cushion. A panel smashed in and a huge clump of clay and the panel hug the throttle wide open. I made about two laps, but I wasn't making good laps and Mark Smith got by me. Luckily, there was a red flag and I hit the (kill) switch. I unhooked the throttle during the stoppage. An official came over and told me we were losing coolant. We had also knocked a hole in the radiator so that ended our night. It was kind of heartbreaking."

Bogucki, who was in contention for at least a podium run, was credited with a 12th-place result.

The event wrapped up on Saturday. Bogucki won a heat race from third and he maneuvered from sixth to fifth place in a qualifier. That relegated him to the pole of a B Main, which he won to transfer into the main event.

"I wasn't very good in the qualifier so we had to start on the front of a B Main and we transferred through into the main event," he said. "The track was rubber so you had to wait for someone to mess up. I think we got up to seventh at one point before finishing ninth. I was happy overall."

Bogucki gained a handful of positions before ending ninth, which was his 17 th top 10 of the season and ninth during ASCS National Tour competition.

"It was a really good night to get points," he said. "We're gearing up to have another solid weekend in two weeks when we end the ASCS National Tour season at Devil's Bowl."

Bogucki, who has climbed to third in the ASCS National Tour championship standings, will take this weekend off before wrapping up the ASCS National Tour season on Oct. 16-17 at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, during the 47th annual Winter Nationals.

Carney II Garners Hard Charger Award During Short Track Nationals Finale

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 6, 2020) - John Carney II capped the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires on Saturday by earning the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars at I-30 Speedway.

The SawBlade.com Xiphos saw blade and Danny Sander Construction backed competitor hustled from a B Main to post an eighth-place finish in the feature, marking his 18th top 10 of the season.

The two-day Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour show, which welcomed more than 75 drivers, began on Friday with Carney II advancing from fourth to third place in a heat race and from seventh to sixth place in a qualifier. That lined him up on the outside of the second row in a B Main.

"We were just a little off, a little too tight, the first night," he said. "The main thing is we were still probably good enough to get in the feature on Friday. Typical of that race and that track, there's always a little beating and banging going on. We got shuffled around and bumped the wrong way in the qualifier and that cost us a few spots. We had to run the B Main and that wasn't a good deal."

Carney II rebounded from his fourth-place finish when he returned to the track on Saturday. He maneuvered from sixth to third place in a heat race. A fifth-place run in a qualifier relegated him to the fourth starting position in a B Main for the second straight night. This time Carney II picked up two positions to garner a transfer into the main event.

"We didn't really change anything for Saturday because the track was drier," he said. "It fit right in with our program. We were good the whole night, every time we hit the track."

Passing continued in the feature as Carney II powered from 15th to eighth on the rubber-down track.

"The feature was really good," he said. "We changed a few things because we knew it was going to take rubber. It only had rubber in turns three and four and down the front straightaway. Our car was really good around the bottom. People would slip up and we'd get by them. It would have been nice to have a few cautions because usually when the track takes rubber people push out on restarts so I think we could have got a few more spots.

"Considering how many cars were there, good cars, finishing eighth out of 70-plus cars is a good weekend and we didn't really tear up anything."

Carney II will take this weekend off before returning to action on Oct. 16-17 at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, during the 47 th annual Winter Nationals with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

Tanner Carrick 5th at Mac Tiner Tribute

PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to Placerville Speedway two weeks removed from his first career win at the ¼ mile bullring, Tanner Carrick would pick up a fifth-place finish during Saturday’s Mac Tiner Tribute to close the sprint car season out at the speedway.

“It was a pretty good night for our team,” Tanner Carrick said. “We had a really fast car, but I made a mistake in turns one and two that really set us back. Luckily, the guys had a really good car underneath me and I was able to fight back and finish with a Top-5.”

Timing in second quickest in his qualifying group, Carrick would find himself on the pole of his heat race.

With 58 cars checked into the pit area on this night, heat races were monumental to get into the 30-lap feature event. From his front row starting position, the Lincoln, CA driver was able to pick up the win and garner a spot in both the feature event, and more importantly the redraw.

Pulling the three, Carrick would roll off of the starting grid from the third starting position, right on younger brother Blakes rear bumper.

When the race went green, Carrick would run in the third spot as the first three laps of the race were interrupted by a pair of red flags.

A lap three restart set the stage for an 18-lap green flag run that saw Carrick continue to run in third and put the pressure on his brother.

Continuing to run in third, Carrick would work the Placerville Speedway cushion as he kept his teammate and brother in his cross hairs. On the 20th lap, the cushion would actually bite Carrick as he would hop over it in turns one and two and he would fall back to sixth.

Back in sixth, Carrick would use a late restart to move back into the Top-5 with just three laps to go in the race, as he took the checkered flag with a fifth place finish.

“Shane (Golobic) and Blake were both really good out front, but my mistake with 10-to-go took us out of any shot we had to battle for the win,” Carrick said. “I am really excited to get to Hanford this weekend and run with the 410 for two nights.”

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: 26, Wins: 3, Top 5’s: 14, Top 10’s: 20

ON TAP: Carrick will had to Keller Auto Speedway on Friday and Saturday night for the Cotton Classic/Morrie Williams Tribute.

‘The Shark’ Closes Placerville Speedway’s Sprint Car Season with 12th Place Finish

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night for the track’s final winged event of the season, Sean Becker would make the most of a late race move in heat to transfer into the feature event where he picked up a 12th place finish.

“I did a horrible job qualifying on Saturday night, and it put us in too deep of a hole to get the results this team deserves,” Sean Becker said.

Using the SCCT format as 58 cars showed up for the Mac Tiner Tribute, Becker would time the Pro Aggregate/All About Fire Protection/Bianchi Farms backed No. 5v entry in sixth fastest in his group.

Moving into heat race action, Becker would take the green flag from the sixth starting position with just four transfer positions into the 30-lap feature event up for grabs.

Able to move into the fifth position, Becker would make a last lap move that saw him take the fourth and final transfer position into the 30-lap feature event.

Lining up 17th on the starting grid for the final feature of the season at Placerville Speedway, the slick and wide surface would allow for a little moving and shaking on this night, but positions were to get with such a talented field assembled.

Following a couple of early stoppages to get the race started, Becker would start to work his way forward during an extended green flag run. Searching around the bullring, Becker would get up to the 12th spot, where he would ultimately finish.

“We worked really hard to get into the feature, but I wasn’t able to make up a lot of ground against a very stacked field of competitors,” Becker said. “Thanks to the VSR team for their hard work.”

Becker and Van Lare Motorsports would like to thank Pro Aggregate, All About Fire Protection, Bianchi Farms, Shark Racing Engines, CCI, Van Lare Steering Repair, and Triple X Race Co. for their support in 2020.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-30, Wins-4, Top 5’s- 13, Top-10’s- 17

ON TAP: Becker is slated for the Cotton Classic/Tribute to Morrie Williams this weekend in Hanford, CA.

Blake Carrick Closes Placerville Speedway’s 2020 Season on the Podium

PETERSEN MEDIA: With the 2020 Winged Sprint Car season coming to a close at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, Blake Carrick surely is chomping at the bit for the 2021 season to start as he ended the year with his third straight podium at the track.

“We had a good car all night long,” Blake Carrick said. “Shane (Golobic) was really good, and we had a good run going in second until the last few laps. The bottom went away, and Colby Copeland had been working the top and was able to get us late.”

With 58 cars checked the Sprint Car Challenge Tour format was utilized, and Carrick would time the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 38B entry in second fastest in his time trial flight.

Lining up on the pole of his heat race, Carrick’s second place run would be good enough to get him into the redraw, where the one pill put him on the pole of the 30-lap feature event alongside Shane Golobic.

When the race went green on the slick, wide surface, Carrick would occupy the second position in the early stages of the race that were marred by a couple of red flag stoppages.

After two early reds, the race settled into a nice 18-lap green flag run that saw Carrick work the bottom of the speedway and occupy the second position as he chased after Golobic who set a torrid pace.

A late stoppage would bunch the field back up, and as Carrick would continue to use the bottom groove. In the waning laps, the grip that was once dominant down low would wear out and Carrick would see Colby Copeland run the high side to get around him and take the second spot.

Able to keep a spot on the podium, Carrick capped the 2020 season at Placerville with a third-place finish, his third consecutive podium at the facility.

“Thanks to Clark and the guys for giving me a good car,” Carrick said. “I hate to go backwards after starting on the pole, but still good to finish the year at Placerville Speedway on the podium.”

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

Colby Copeland puts on the charge to tally runner up finish at the Tribute to Mac Tiner

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – October 6, 2020…Colby Copeland and Canales Racing have put together several impressive outings at Placerville Speedway this season and that continued this past Saturday, as they brought home a runner up finish in a stout 58-car field.

The “Tribute to Mac Tiner” showcased the largest Winged 360 Sprint Car purse of the season in California and Copeland’s charge from the 11th starting spot continued the strength he has shown at the quarter-mile all year. Among their six start starts at the facility in 2020, he and Canales Racing earned four runner up finishes and a victory during the special Fourth of July event on Independence Day.

“We performed well at Placerville this season and it was great to finish that off with such a strong run at the Tribute to Mac Tiner last Saturday,” Copeland commented. “Trevor Canales has given me some great cars in Pville this year and has definitely boosted my confidence each time we go back. I was able to work the cushion late in the race this past weekend and get around cars, but we just ran out of time at the end to catch Shane (Golobic). I was hoping for a caution to bunch things back up but to finish second in a field like that is something we’re proud of.”

Copeland began the evening by qualifying fourth in his group, before scoring a second place result in the heat race, which placed the Econo Lube N’ Tune & Brakes/ Eagle Companies Inc./ Geico Insurance No. 5C inside row six for the 30-lap feature. He worked his way forward in the talent laden field and position himself in fifth when the final restart of the night occurred with eight laps remaining.

The 28-year-old then went directly towards the famed Placerville Speedway cushion, charging around Andy Forsberg, J.J. Hickle and Blake Carrick moving into second with just a few circuits left. Leader Shane Golobic was well out front by that point and Copeland eventually crossed the checkered in second, capping off an exceptional season when it comes to Winged Sprint Car racing at the bullring.

Paul Nienhiser Wins First 410ci Start in Midland Performance No. 50

PETERSEN MEDIA: Friday night at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, IL, Paul Nienhiser made his first 410ci start with Scott Bonar and the Midland Performance No. 50 machine memorable as he picked up the MOWA win during Gold Crown weekend.

“Scott Bonar and I have competed together in a ton of 360ci events over the last few years, and Saturday night we were finally able to team up for a 410ci event,” Nienhiser said. “We have been fast together all year long, and that translated over to Friday night and we picked up a win.”

After a strong hot lap session where everything felt good to the Chapin, IL driver, Nienhiser would advance from third to first in his heat race which earned him a spot in the nightly redraw.

Pulling the four pill, Nienhiser would grid the field from the outside of the second row for the feature event. With a razor thin cushion build up around the speedway, Nienhiser would get up to it and build his momentum as he quickly worked his way into second, chasing after Thomas Meseraul.

Getting to ‘TMez’ in traffic, Nienhiser would nail the bottom on one lap as he got by a lapped car as well as Meseraul to take over the race lead.

Out in front, Nienhiser would quickly begin to pull away from the field as he built up a sizeable lead until a red flag flew on with just five laps to go. Ironically, the red was needed for Cannon McIntosh who was aboard Nienhiser’s entry for the weekend. He was okay.

Back underway, Nienhiser would nail the final five laps as he went on to pick up what was his 20th career MOWA win, putting him just two wins behind Jarrod Hull on the series’ all time wins list.

“Chasing after Jarred Hull on the wins list has been fun,” Nienhiser said. “To get our 20th with Scott Bonar on the wrenches is actually pretty cool, because he was with Hull for a lot of those wins, so hopefully we can pick up a couple more together and get up top ourselves.”

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

2020 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-32, Wins-5, Top 5’s-12, Top 10’s-18

ON TAP: Nienhiser and Scott Bonar are set to return to MOWA action together on Friday night at Jacksonville Speedway, and then on Saturday night in Farmington, MO for the Queen’s Royal.

Forsberg 6th at Mac Tiner Tribute

PETERSEN MEDIA- Taking part in the final winged sprint car race of the season at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night dubbed the Mac Tiner Tribute, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing recorded a sixth place finish.

“58 cars checked in and we were fast time in our group, got through our heat and found ourselves in the draw,” Forsberg said. “We got into the Top-5, but I couldn’t run the top very well at the end of the race and we lost a couple spots and ended up sixth.”

Earning quick time honors in his qualifying group, the Auburn, CA driver would finish fourth in his heat race aboard the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services Services/Huggins Cams backed No. x1 machine.

Moving into the redraw, pill puller extraordinaire Jimmy Wall was able to make his season debut for the team and as fate would have it, the seven-pill lined Forsberg up in the fourth row of the 30-lap feature event.

With 94 total cars in the pit area amongst the four divisions on this night, the track held up really well, and was very slick and wide when the 30-lap feature event came to life.

From the fourth row, Forsberg would work on the cushion as he sliced and diced his way into the Top-Five and got up as high as fourth.

In the latter stages of the race, the cushion would get a little tricky, and Forsberg would move to the low groove.

Losing a couple of positions in the final stanzas of the race, Forsberg would cap the 2020 season at Placerville Speedway with a sixth-place finish.

“Big shoutout to RMI for putting together a great track with all these cars in action on Saturday night, and a big thank you to the Tiner Family for all of their hardwork rounding up a ton of money,” Forsberg said. “It was definitely an event that should have been in front of fans, so hopefully we are able to do it again next year.”

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

ON TAP: F&F Racing will make the trip to Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA to take part in the Morrie Williams Tribute/Cotton Classic on Saturday night.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-11, Wins-1, Top 5’s-5, Top 10’s-9.

Kalib Henry Eighth at Tribute to Mac Tiner

PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking part in the Mac Tiner Tribute at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, Kalib Henry and McColloch Motorsports would have a strong run together as Henry tallied an eighth-place finish.

“We had a ton of speed all night long, and it was really the best I have felt in the car all year long,” Kalib Henry said. “We were extremely fast out of the box, and just narrowly missed out on fast time by .005 seconds.”

With 58 cars checked in for what was the final winged sprint car event of the year at Placerville Speedway, Henry timed the McColloch’s RV Repair/Express Sewer and Drain/Davis Truck Painting backed No. 17 in second fastest overall and second fastest in his time trial group.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Henry would slip back just a little as his third-place finish would be good enough to move him directly into the 30-lap feature event, but he would miss out on the spot inside the redraw.

Lining up 10th in the feature event on an extremely slick and wide surface, Henry would find himself battling hard as he jumped into the Top-10 early.

With passing proving to be tough against the stout field of cars, Henry would try a few different tricks to work his way forward.

In a hard fought 30-lap feature event that saw an extended green flag run, Henry would close the night out with an eighth-place finish.

“I have to thank Nick and Kerry McColloch, as well as my Dad for all of their help and hard work on Saturday night,” Henry said. “I’m not sure when we will get back to racing next as the season is winding down, but I am really happy with how fast we have this car.”

McColloch Motorsports would like to thank McColloch’s RV Repair, Express Sewer and Drain, Davis Truck Painting, ART Speed Equipment, RE Technologies, Hansen Machine, and Gary Morgan Graphics for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 9, Wins: 1, Top-5’s: 1, Top-10’s- 1

ON TAP: McColloch Motorsports and Henry are unsure of their next race together at the time of press.

 

 

Scelzi and KCP Racing Poised for Port Royal Speedway Return

PETERSEN MEDIA- Taking part in Pennsylvania’s crowned jewel event over the weekend, the National Open, Gio Scelzi and KCP Racing are already focused on this weekend’s trip to Port Royal Speedway following a tough run on Saturday night.

“It wasn’t our weekend,” Gio Scelzi said. “Friday night we had a pretty good run, and we were really hoping to back it up with a good run on Saturday night, but we just missed it.”

Checking in at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night to kick off the Champion Oil National Open, Scelzi would time the Logan Contractors Supply, Inc./Aspen Aire/Royal Flooring backed No. 18 machine in sixth fast in his qualifying flight.

With heat races so important against such a loaded field of cars, Scelzi would take care of business from the second row as his third-place finish moved him directly into the opening night feature event.

Lining up in the sixth row, Scelzi would battle with the likes of Sheldon Haudenschild, and PA standout Brian Montieth as they all jockeyed for position just outside of the Top-10.

When the Friday night feature event concluded, Scelzi would bring home a 14th place finish in the feature, with one more night to go at ‘The Grove’.

Saturday night saw Scelzi get off to a tough start in time trials, which would essentially dictate the rest of the KCP Racing’s night. After timing in 16th fastest in time trials, Scelzi would finish eighth in his heat race before ending the night with a 13th place finish in the ‘B’.

“The National Open is undoubtedly the toughest race of the year in PA, and we just missed it a little on Saturday and in an event like that if you miss it early it becomes extremely tough to dig out of the hole,” Scelzi noted.

As the 2020 season winds down for KCP Racing, the team now turns its attention to more World of Outlaws action this weekend as the series makes the trip to Port Royal Speedway.

“We were just at Port Royal a couple of weeks ago with the All Stars, and I think we started to learn some things on the slick there that we are excited to try this weekend,” Scelzi added. “I said it after we ran the Tusky, but the slick there is like no other, and I think we will be up for the challenge.”

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-24, Wins-0, Top-5’s- 8, Top 10’s-11

ON TAP: Scelzi and KCP Racing are slated to make a return trip to Port Royal Speedway

Justyn Cox Charges from 17th to Sixth at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Fresh off of a quick trip to the Midwest, Justyn Cox and C&M Motorsports were back in action at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night for the ‘Mac Tiner Tribute’ and Cox was able to charge from 16th to finish seventh in the feature event.

“Saturday was a good night for the C&M Motorsports team,” Justyn Cox said. “We were just a little off in time trials, and with 58 cars in the pit area it would put us a little deeper than we would have liked to have been to start the feature.”

Timing the Moorefield Construction/Berco Redwood/Barry Lumber backed No. 7c entry in fifth fastest in his time trial group, the Clarksburg, CA driver would line up fifth in his heat race.

With only the top four finishers transferring into the feature, Cox would need to get a good jump. He was able to do just that as he worked his way to a third-place finish and punched his ticket directly into the $5,094-to-win feature event.

Finding himself 16th on the starting grid, Cox knew the slicked off surface would be prone to passing and it would allow him to search around the bullring and work his way forward.

Following a bit of a slow start to the feature event, an extended green flag run saw Cox work his way into the Top-10, and then through the Top-10 as he got up to seventh before a lap 22 red flag was needed.

The final eight lap dash to the finish would see Cox stall out in the final run, though he would maintain his seventh position where he would go on to finish.

“Big thank to Cody and Mandi, and everyone who helped on this car on Saturday night,” Cox added. “We had a really good car on the long run, but after that late red we couldn’t really make up any ground. I am extremely happy with how things felt, and what we have been able to do despite running a limited scheduled together. Hopefully 2021 is a little more normal, and we can put together a lot of races liked we had planned on this season.”

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

ON TAP: C&M Motorsports and Justyn Cox will be idle this weekend, and are unsure of their next race.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-12, Wins-2, Top 5’s-5, Top 10’s-6

STAY CONNECTED: Keep up with C&M Motorsports by following @PrecisonShocks or @Mandi7C on Twitter.

Sams III Taking Lessons From Frustrating Short Track Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 5, 2020) - A tough pill draw, a high car count and tricky track conditions hampered Danny Sams III last weekend during the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires.

"To be honest, it was one of the worst weekends of my career," he said. "It was one of those weekends where nothing went right. We'll take what we learned and move forward."

The Sams LaMountain Racing driver, who was one of more than 75 drivers in competition, finished eighth in a heat race to open the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour action at I-30 Speedway on Friday.

"We had a good initial start and they called it back," he said. "After the second attempt as I was passing for sixth me and another guy got together so we fell back to eighth."

Sams III was relegated to a C Main, in which he charged from 13 th to fourth. However, that was one spot shy of a transfer and ended his night.

Sams III started toward the back of his heat race on Saturday as well.

"I was up to fourth from sixth and I made a couple of driver mistakes," he said. "I made a good initial move and made up some positions. Then I got passed and made a couple of wrong moves."

A seventh-place finish in the heat race sent Sams III to a C Main. He started eighth and worked toward a transfer position before fading to a seventh-place result.

"I got up to third and was in a transfer position, but I couldn't get the car to work properly," he said. "We just missed the setup. You had to be at the bottom of the track and I couldn't get it to stay down there. Going up top, there wasn't anything."

Sams III will take this weekend off before wrapping up the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour season on Oct. 16-17 at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, during the 47th annual Winter Nationals. He enters the event ranked 11th in the championship standings - only 16 points out of the top 10.

Crockett Posts Podium Performance During Short Track Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 5, 2020) - The Short Track Nationals was a tale of two very different nights for Roger Crockett, who was in contention to win the marquee event at I-30 Speedway last Saturday.

The opening night of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour's 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires got off to a rough start on Friday. Crockett finished fourth in a heat race and eighth in a qualifier before he advanced from 10th to sixth in a B Main.

"The first night was frustrating," Crockett said. "We started in a bad spot in the first heat race again. I swear that's the story of our year. We drew in a bad spot and it wasn't the place to start and the track was so wet. In the qualifier we started eighth and a car half spun going into turn one. We had to lift and fell to ninth. The track started getting a little wider as the race went on in the B Main and we were able to get a few cars. It was a tough B Main and it was extremely hard to pass. Our lap times were right there and the car felt good, but just the circumstances didn't pan out for us."

It was the first ASCS National Tour A Main this season that Crockett didn't participate in - not counting the 360 Knoxville Nationals finale that doesn't pay points. However, Saturday's event finale presented a new opportunity for Crockett and the 75-plus competitors. Crockett charged from eighth to second place in a heat race and from sixth to second place in a qualifier to garner the most points.

"Brandi drew the second day," Crockett said in reference to his wife. "She's had a couple times where she draws a high number, but in a great heat race. The track was racy. We were able to get into second in the heat race. We made a few changes in the qualifier and got the car a hair better. We were able to move to second in a really tough qualifier."

Crockett placed second in a dash to line up on the outside of the front row for the 30-lap main event.

"For the feature the track was starting to take rubber so they shortened the race 11 laps," he said. "We set up for it getting locked down rubber. At the beginning of the race the car took off. Traffic ultimately was the demise of our race. We got underneath a local car three or four times. He'd literally chop me into the infield. It cost me momentum and Sam (Hafertepe Jr.) was able to sneak by. We were all over Sam a couple of times. With a few laps to go he got fouled up off of turn four. I was there and went to go around him in turn one. We were side by side. A lapped car went up the race track so it prevented me from going by both of them and I got in the marbles. Then I went into turn three and my car didn't stick. (Derek) Hagar was able to get me and that cost us second. I knew there weren't a lot of laps left and I saw an opportunity that was possibly the last opportunity I had to win the race. Going for the win cost us second, but you don't get very many opportunities to win these big races."

Crockett, who led the first 14 laps, finished third. It was his second career podium performance at the track and his fourth podium overall this season.

"It was good, especially after the first night," he said. "We passed the most cars throughout the night in the heat and the qualifier. So that's always good and gives you confidence. I thought it'd be really hard to get the jump on the start and get the lead, but I was able to get the lead on the first lap. We had a comfortable lead until traffic. It's frustrating because our car was plenty good enough to win."

Crockett plans on taking this weekend off before wrapping up the ASCS National Tour season on Oct. 16-17 at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, during the 47th annual Winter Nationals. He enters the event ranked second in the championship standings.

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 2 - I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. - Heat race: 4 (5); Qualifier: 8 (8); B Main: 6 (10).

Kerry Madsen Highlights National Open With Top 10 During Opening Night

Inside Line Promotions - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (Oct. 5, 2020) - Kerry Madsen captured his 18th top 10 of the season with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series last Friday during the opening night of the 58th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open.

Madsen's 10th-place finish at Williams Grove Speedway gave the Killer Instinct Crossbows sponsored Big Game Motorsports team its 13 th top 10 in the last 14 starts with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt.'

"We were pretty good, but just missed starting on the front row in the heat race both nights," he said. "We were really close, but not close enough."

Madsen qualified fifth quickest in his group to miss the front row of a heat race by only one position. He started and finished third in his heat.

"We were solid in the heat race on Friday night and ran third," he said. "I started ninth in the feature and we had a strong race car. We were always at the bumper of the car in front, but couldn't make the moves to gain a few more spots."

Madsen's 10th-place run was his 38th overall top 10 this year.

The National Open concluded on Saturday with Madsen qualifying eighth quickest in his group. He lined up fourth in a heat race, but quickly moved forward.

"I had a really good car in the heat and should have got ourselves in a dash," he said. "The front wing got knocked off on the back straightaway at Lap 3 or Lap 4. At that point it was put the top wing all the way forward and try to figure out a way to not get passed. We ended up fourth, which was hard to do. Realistically if you're going to have a shot to win you have to be in the dash."

Madsen's fourth-place result in the heat race lined him up on the inside of the eighth row for the A Main.

"We threw a Hail Mary at it and weren't very good in the A Main," he said. "We were too tight. It wasn't until about 15 laps into the A Main our car came alive. It wasn't the result we were looking for, but that happens sometimes at Williams Grove."

Madsen finished 20th.

The team plans on joining the World of Outlaws this Friday and Saturday at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa., for the Nittany Showdown. Madsen has visited the track five times this year with a season-best run of second place last month.

"I'm feeling good about going there," he said. "We've had a few good runs there and have had our package good. It's an Outlaws race so you need to qualify well. Then hopefully we can expand upon the progress we've made and run up front."

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 2 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 10 (9).

Oct. 3 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 8; Heat race: 4 (4); Feature: 20 (15).

Sprint Car Bandits

*THIS SAT. OCT. 10 7pm* $2,500 Possible to Win Sprint Car Bandits "FALLS TOWN SPRINT SHOWDOWN" at Monarch Motor Speedway! AMAZING FORECAST: DRY & UPPER 80's!

Wichita Falls, TX (10/05/20) by DarinShort.com. Fans and race teams that have visited the new Monarch Motor Speedway​ (west side of Wichita Falls) know that it features incredible dirt track racing with state-of-the-art facilities. And for the second time this season, a blockbuster event is taking place at the ¼ mile ultra-fast speed plant featuring many of the best dirt track racers in the region with the running of the Sprint Car Bandits® (SCB) “FALLS TOWN SPRINT SHOWDOWN” 360C.I. Shootout, paying $2,000 to win and $300/start on THIS SATURDAY, October 10th at 7pm.

Joining the 360C.I. winged sprint cars will be the popular USRA Tuners, the Milestone Now600 TOWR Micro Sprint Series and the Mod 600’s. Note that the Sprint Cars will be racing 1st or 2nd division out for the feature events.

:30 Second Rewind from the May 9th SCB Monarch event: 12th place starter John Carney II coming from 12th to take the lead the middle half of the race, while Channin Tankersley snuck by on a quickly transitioning surface on lap 21 to grab his 2nd career Sprint Car Bandits series feature event and $2,100 - topping a field of 39 other competitors. Kyle McCutcheon would become the West Texas Raceway sponsored Hard Charger recipient, coming from 15th to 2nd and collecting $1,300. Colorado's Jake Bubak would finish 3rd with John Carney in 4th and Michael Day finishing 5th after starting 9th.

I think it’s also worth a :30 Second Rewind of the 2019 SCB Monarch event as well: An unforgettable night of wild in-your-face action would take place after overnight storms made for a total slurp-fest on the racing surface with elbows-up high speed drama taking place in every division all night long. The SCB feature event saw Will Eggimann (2019 SCB series champion) wrestle the lead away from John Carney II and Tim Crawley. Eggimann would lead til the 2-to-go flags were waved when a lapped car got crossed up and started flipping in front of the lead pack, resulting in Eggimann’s top wing being torn off the car. During the red, with just two laps to go, Eggimann and team decided it was not a safe idea to restart the event sans top wing leading the field…so he went pit-side and John Carney II would take home the $2,000 winners prize, with Harli White driving the wheels off her #17w sprinter coming from 21st to 2nd after a first-lap skirmish.

BACK TO 10/10/20: Tommy Bryant of Cabinets By Tommy LLC in Granbury Texas has stepped up to provide the 360C.I. Sprint Car Bandits® drivers three exciting bonuses for this event with the Cabinets by Tommy LLC $500 Dash For Cash, $200 Hard Charger Award and $100 to the 9th place driver on the 9th lap of the A-feature!

Donny Schatz earns Williams Grove National Open crown for richest sprint car payday of 2020

Dates: Friday and Saturday, October 2nd & 3rd
Event: National Open
Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series
Track: Williams Grove Speedway (Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania)
Donny Schatz A-Main Finishes (Start):
Friday: 7th (10th)
Saturday: 1st (4th)

2020 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: 6304 points | Third (70-points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 5, 2020) – For an unprecedented sixth time in event history, Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz is a Williams Grove Speedway National Open champion, scoring $75,000 in the process equaling the richest payday of the 2020 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series season. Simultaneously, the win bumped Schatz’ season total to five, now with a career total amounting to 299 World of Outlaws victories – third all-time.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Advance Professional/Carquest Auto Parts/Technet Professional Automotive Service/Ford Performance/Mobil 1/Sage Fruit/Curb Records/Absolute Automation & Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Digital Ally/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, earned the National Open title from the outside of the second row, taking command of the 40-lap contest for the first time on lap 22, ultimately utilizing the bottom groove to drive underneath race leader, David Gravel, at the exit of turn two.

Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson attempted to make things interesting and did his best to steal the show from the ten-time World of Outlaws champion, but Schatz prevailed, keeping Larson at bay despite a last-ditch effort in both corners on the final lap.

Donny Schatz kicked-off National Open weekend with a seventh-place performance during preliminary competition on Friday, October 2. With all results considered, Schatz remains third in the World of Outlaws point standings, trailing Kasey Kahne Racing entry and defending Outlaw champion, Brad Sweet, by 70 markers.

“Feels good to win that race,” Schatz said in Williams Grove Speedway victory lane. “We tried something in the Dash. Wasn’t all that great but rebounded. ‘Scuba’ (Crew Chief Steve Swenson) changed the car back. He made the right call and did a great job. We’re standing here.”

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their 2020 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with another two-day display in the Keystone State, this time visiting the “Speed Palace” that is Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania, on Friday and Saturday, October 9-10. The two-day Nittany Showdown will award $8,000 on Friday and $15,000 on Saturday.

Schatz is the defending Nittany Showdown preliminary champion at Port Royal Speedway, holding off Anthony Macri and Brian Brown for the $8,000 payday.

Tire trouble during National Open finale costs Dietrich top-ten; Nittany Showdown ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (October 5, 2020) – Gettysburg, Pennsylvania’s Danny Dietrich was well on his way to a top-ten performance on Saturday evening during Williams Grove Speedway’s National Open finale when a sliced right-rear tire ended all of his forward progress.

Dietrich, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, No. 48 sprint car, started 14th on the 40-lap, $75,000-to-win A-Main grid and drove himself to eighth with only nine laps recorded. Unfortunately, a cut tire during an ensuing double-file restart forced “Double-D” to retire to the work area. The former Williams Grove Speedway champion would return and recover to finish 18th.

A fourth-place finish during his respective heat solidified Dietrich’s spot on the National Open grid; there were over 50 cars in attendance.

“It’s disappointing, but nothing we can do about it now. We’ll regroup this week and prepare for two nights at Port Royal,” Danny Dietrich said, a 12-time feature winner in 2020. “I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work to get ready for these big races. I also want to thank the fans for coming out to support these events. We’re very fortunate to have the opportunity to race in front of such a dedicated group of fans. We enjoy every bit of it.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will rejoin the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series on Friday and Saturday, October 9-10, during the two-day Nittany Showdown at Port Royal Speedway. Certainly no stranger to victory lane at the “Speed Palace,” having earned four feature victories over the last three seasons, “Double-D” will chase a total winner’s share equaling $23,000 during the coming weekend; $8,000 on Friday and $15,000 on Saturday.

JONESTOWN, Pa. (October 5, 2020) – Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing set themselves up for success on Saturday evening during Williams Grove Speedway’s annual National Open finale, but a mechanical hiccup with less than five laps recorded cut loose all of Zearfoss’ hard-earned potential; he retired on lap four after starting ninth.

The Jonestown, Pennsylvania-native earned a spot in the 40-lap, $75,000-to-win World of Outlaws program by way of third place performance during his respective heat race. There were over 50 cars in attendance for the year’s richest sprint car event.

“We were pretty excited about our potential, but those things happen.

I’m lucky to be working around such a dedicated group of people.”

Brock and Brock Zearfoss Racing will continue their 2020 campaign with another day-two stint against the Greatest Show On Dirt, this time visiting the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” on Friday and Saturday, October 9-10. The former Port Royal Speedway champion will chase a total winner’s share equaling $23,000; $8,000 on Friday and $15,000 on Saturday.

Westfall set to “Roll the Dice” at I-96 Speedway

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (October 5, 2020) – Despite what turned out to be a hard-fought weekend in the Hoosier State, missing main event competition during Gas City’s final event of the season on October 2, as well as missing an A-Main start against the USAC National Sprint Cars at Lawrenceburg the following evening, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports are not the least bit discouraged and are already looking forward to a full weekend in Michigan.

The two-day affair will feature two, full programs awarding a total winner’s share equaling $4,000; $1,500 on Friday and $2,500 on Saturday.

Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will enter the weekend with three victories on the season, one of which at I-96 Speedway. The Forest, Ohio-based racing operation scored a Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) victory at the Lake Odessa facility on September 25.

“We’ll put last weekend behind us and move forward. That’s all we can do,” Matt Westfall said, the 2019 BOSS Series champion with Ray Marshall Motorsports. “Weekends like that happen. No reason to get discouraged. We have 4,000 reasons to be ready for this weekend. We know our way around I-96 so we’ll revert to our notes and aim to sweep the weekend.”

Bacon Guns for USAC Sprint Car Crown on Saturday – Make First Pavement Silver Crown Start Sunday

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (October 2, 2020) – It has been a battle from the outset.

But after posting a pair of podium finishes in last weekend’s USAC Sprint Car portion of the Double-Double at Gas City and Kokomo, Bacon and the Fatheadz Eyewear No. 69 Sprint Car team carry a 30-point advantage into Saturday night’s season finale at Lawrenceburg Speedway.

“That’s ten positions, so a solid night can seal it,” Bacon says. “But a lot can happen, we definitely still have some work to do.”

After trying to put the finishing touches on a third USAC National Sprint Car championship on Saturday, Bacon will experience a “first” on Sunday as he makes his maiden pavement voyage in USAC Silver Crown action aboard the Doran Racing No. 77 at Toledo Speedway’s Rollie Beale Classic.

Bacon pulled double-duty during last weekend’s USAC Double-Double, making his initial starts aboard the Hayward Motorsports Oilfire No. 19 Midget along with his Sprint Car action in the familiar Hoffman No. 69.

With a potential Sprint Car crown on the line, Bacon started the weekend in strong fashion with the quickest overall time on Friday at Gas City and then raced to a third-place finish in the feature event. Bacon then led much of the way in Saturday’s Kokomo feature before settling for runner-up honors at the stripe.

“I felt we had a better car,” Bacon readily admitted after leading 18 of 30 Kokomo laps. “I got stuck out in the lead as kind of a sitting duck. I contemplated going to the bottom, but it’s kind of hard to leave what you’re doing. We actually got the lead back and lapped traffic just kind of clogged the hole and (Courtney) was able to keep the lead. I’m disappointed to run second again but there’s obviously a bright side with us gaining a lot of points for the championship.”

In the USAC Midget portion of the Double-Double, “The Macho Man” rallied from 22nd to 11th in Friday’s main event at Gas City and then finished out the weekend with a strong sixth-place run on Saturday at Kokomo Speedway.

“It was a challenge, the Hayward Motorsports team was running two cars and I was racing in two cars, so all that back and forth makes it difficult,” Bacon evaluates. “But I was really happy with the progress that we made over the weekend, I feel like we’ll be in a good position to do well at the Leffler and Haubstadt next weekend.”

This weekend can be one for the record books though with a potential third USAC Sprint Car title on the line along with a Silver Crown pavement debut.

Reutzel Sets Sights on Williams Grove National Open

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (October 2, 2020) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team are back in central Pennsylvania for this weekend’s World of Outlaws double at Mechanicsburg’s Williams Grove Speedway.

The current All Star Circuit of Champions point leader closing in on a third consecutive series title will vie for this weekend’s $10,000 winner’s share on Friday night and then Saturday’s season-best $75,000 winner’s cut.

“We have to qualify well and then go from there,” the driver of the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car commented.

Reutzel has fared well at the storied Posse oval in recent outings, picking off an All Star win in the Jack Gunn Memorial just two weeks ago for his tenth series win of the year. Reutzel also posted a pair of All Star wins at Williams Grove before posting a fourth-place finish in the National Open.

Already with 14 overall wins in 2020, the driver of the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment entry looks to rebound from Eldora’s Governors Reign and then a World of Outlaws outing at Plymouth Speedway that ended early with mechanical issues.

“We took Saturday at Lernerville off just to regroup and get ready for this weekend,” Reutzel says.

Following this weekend, Reutzel and the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspension team look to close out a third All Star title next weekend back in Ohio at Fremont Speedway.

But this weekend, the Fischer Body Shop team eyes that $75,000 National Open prize.

2020 Quick Stats: 75 races, 14 wins, 36 top-fives, 49 top-tens.

Next Up: World of Outlaws at Williams Grove Speedway (Mechanicsburg, PA) “National Open” on Friday and Saturday.

Crouch Earns A Main Start During Debut at Kokomo and First Weekend With USAC National Midgets

Inside Line Promotions - KOKOMO, Ind. (Oct. 2, 2020) - Brenham Crouch made the main event during his first career start at Kokomo Speedway last Saturday when he capped his weekend debut with the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series.

Crouch soaked up the experience from his first two USAC National starts behind the wheel of a Toyota Racing sponsored Keith Kunz Motorsports midget.

The weekend began on Friday at Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, Ind., where Crouch qualified 26th quickest before he placed seventh in both a heat race and the B Main. It was his first appearance at the track and the night ended only one spot out of making the main event.

"The first night I struggled with the track and couldn't get a hold of it," he said. "I think that had a lot to do with my experience. I'm learning every time I hit the track and go to these new tracks. I'm trying to soak everything up

"When we got to Kokomo Speedway on Saturday, I've ran laps at that track on iRacing so my timing was a lot better."

That showed as Crouch qualified fifth quickest out of the 31 drivers. He then placed fifth in a heat race and won the B Main to transfer into the main event.

"I'm super pleased with our qualifying result," he said. "It was great to win the B Main and make the main event. On the first lap I went to miss a pileup and stalled it. I was mad at myself and felt like I could have got a top 10 if that hadn't happened. After restarting we found the middle pretty early and I drove it in deeper in the corners. I was happy with how I read the track. I've learned that you have to be pleased when you accomplish good things and not dwell on things that go wrong."

Crouch rallied from the early incident to charge from the back of the field to a 12th-place result, which was his second-best finish in a midget.

Next up for Crouch will be his debut at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill., this Friday and Saturday for the Gold Crown Midget Nationals with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 25 - Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, Ind. - Qualifying: 26; Heat race: 7 (7); B Main: 7 (-).

Sept. 26 - Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind. - Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 5 (5); B Main: 1 (1); Feature: 12 (11).

SEASON STATS -

47 races, 1 win, 7 top fives, 19 top 10s, 33 top 15s, 37 top 20s

RMS Racing added to Gold Crown Roster

Belleville, IL. (10/01/2020) As the weekend is getting closer, the new event added to the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League Schedule has created a rise we all have anticipated. This weekend consists of a two day show at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, IL. for the Gold Crown Midget Nationals October 2&3.

Boyles the Greenwood, MO. native will be in attendance for both nights at the Gold Crown Nationals. He will be behind the wheel of the #98 RMS Racing Midget and is no stranger to either of the POWRi Leagues. Boyles was the 2016 POWRi WAR Sprint Car Champion, and this year he joined Dave Estep and conquered a full season of Midget racing. Boyles has also joined a full time USAC Sprint Car team for the remainder of the 2020 season. Boyles has come so close to his first POWRi National Midget League victory but came up a few laps short at Jacksonville Speedway. His best Career finish with the POWRi Midgets is a third-place finish at Jacksonville Speedway. In four starts Boyles has one top five finish and two top ten.

Meseraull is one to keep your eyes on this weekend, he has had a successful year joining the RMS Racing Midget team this year.

Ruggles Wins First CRSA Series Title In Land of Legends Raceway Shocker

(CANANDAIGUA, NY) – Land of Legends Raceway 305 Sprint Car dominator Darry Ruggles set out in 2020 to win his first Super Gen Products CRSA Sprints title. Not a COVID-19 shortened season, not a serious hand injury, not a mechanical failure in the second to last round and not even a feature at his home track where didn’t lead a lap in the first 24 of 25 laps could stop the Hopewell, NY from accomplishing his goal.

Ruggles won his heat race with a thrilling last lap pass to make sure that none of his challengers would gain any heat race points on him during the end of the night tally. But he would have a great challenge in the 25-lap A-Main from his team car driven by his daughter Alysha who appeared to have dad’s kryptonite in winning the series title with the ultimate exclamation point.

Josh Pieniazek was slated to go away from the pole position in the main event, but his No. 56 would not fire during the initial push-off and would relegate him to starting in 25th. This gave the pole position to 2020 Land of Legends Raceway 305 sprint track champion Alysha Bay- the first female track champion in the track’s storied and legendary history.

Ruggles would waste no time jumping to the runner up spot, but the race has an incident before the first lap went on the board. Ethan Gray got upside down for the first time in his career in a 305 sprint after wheel-hopping Josh Flint’s No. 41J in turn one. Both drivers would be ok, but their night would be done.

Once the race resumed, Bay took the early advantage with Ruggles moving into the second spot quickly from the drop of the green. Bay was committed to her usual bottom lane while Ruggles pushed and pushed the outside lane higher in the turns. The two dodged a bullet early as a trio of cars spun just ahead of them in the first turn, that included Dan Craun, Peter Dance and Massachusetts driver Alex Adamsky who made his first CRSA start of the shortened season.

Once back under “The Rooster” Scott Hixson’s green flag, the top five in the running order was truly a who’s who of CRSA competition with Bay leading Ruggles, three-time and defending series champion Jeff Trombley, two-time 2020 winner Bobby Parrow and July’s Land of Legends winner Cory Sparks.

As the race approached the final laps, Bay had gapped the competition behind her as Ruggles settled into second position knowing he would lock up the title doing so. Jeff Trombley made it a great race for second place, but caught the fourth turn wall hard with the right rear tire with under five to go and ending his great run.

With Bay taking the white flag with a big lead, the check was written, the stats were being updated and it appeared that Bay would tie her father for most CRSA wins at the Canandaigua speed plant. But trouble struck entering Turn 4 for Bay and her highlighter pink No. 48A.

With the brakes on her car starting to fail her, Bay approached and closed in quickly on two cars ahead who were in the process of failing a lap down. When Bay reached Ronnie Greek’s No. 56v in the apex of the corner, Greek took the low lane not being able to see Bay who peeked underneath his left rear tire. With Bay not able to whoa the car up in time, the two made pretty significant contact which folded up the front end on Bay’s Batzel’s Auto Sales, Danny Willmes Enterprises machine.

The caution was displayed with a lap remaining and Bay’s dominant performance ended on the Land of Legends Raceway tow truck. Trombley and Bay’s departure really shook up the top five in the running order for the one-lap dash to the finish with Ruggles leading Parrow, Ontario, NY’s Steve Glover, new up and comer Kyle Pierce and title contender Dana Wagner filling out the top five.

That is how they would finish as Ruggles took off and hid off a perfect restart to secure his fourth CRSA Land of Legends Raceway win, his 40th Land of Legends 305 sprint victory and his ninth career CRSA win. It was without a doubt a bittersweet moment for Ruggles as not 50 yards away he saw the dominant car of the race that he prepared sitting idle on the hook.

“We put a lot of effort into both of these cars this week so they would both be solid and Alysha’s certainly was,” noted Ruggles, visibly torn about the victory on one hand and bitter defeat on the other.

“At Penn Can we didn't go as good but all the other races we ran well. Only running four races, the title is not as gratifying as if we had gone12 or 15, but we still worked hard every race and we finished up front.”

Ruggles even noted a problem they discovered after the heat race that has been their nemesis seemingly all season long.

“(We) tore everything apart, completely apart from top to bottom the last couple weeks. Found something just before the feature and we changed it and that is what I've been struggling with for four weeks. Just fixed it about five minutes before the feature. We had the wrong brake rotor, too aggressive with the brakes. It was always fine in the heat but the longer we ran in the feature the hotter the brake fluid got and the brakes just got locked up.”

It was a great night for Ruggles, but a great night for Kyle Pierce as well. The first-year 305 Winged Sprint driver out of Spencer, NY finished his season with a handful of top five finishes including Saturday night. Though he finished highest in points as a Rookie, CRSA officials have decided, that with only four races in 2020 that all Rookie status drivers in 2020 will carry their Rookie status into 2021. CRSA rules allow for up to five starts in a season without losing their Rookie status.

It was a bittersweet night for the CRSA Sprints as Series directors and great friends of racing Peter and Dale Meskill announced that 2020 would be their final season at the helm of the series owned and promoted by Mike Emhof. They will still assist the series with marketing and have already gotten a verbal commitment for their first sponsor for 2021. Thank you to this dynamic duo who has been instrumental in the growth of the CRSA Sprints for the last three seasons.

The CRSA 305 Sprint Tour is powered by Super Gen Products with their Champion Power Equipment located in Newark, NY. Associate sponsors for the 2020 CRSA 305 Sprints include Midstate Basement Authorities, CNY Farm Supply, the Maguire Family of Dealerships, Eagle Enterprises, LLC, Hoosier Racing Tires and is owned and operated by Mike Emhof Motorsports.

KMS 2020-21 SeasonPlans

Following the recent cancellation of this season’s World Series Sprintcar Championship, the Krikke Motorsport team has had a change in their 2020-21 season plans and announcing Dayne Kingshott as their new driver.

With the international and state borders currently closed due to the coronavirus outbreak – and with the opening of them not yet known – it’s unlikely and unfortunate that the Krikke Motorsport team driver, Kerry Madsen, is going to be able to return to Australia to compete this summer.

As a result of Madsen being unable to run the upcoming season, the Krikke Motorsport team has made the decision to concentrate on the domestic season in their home state of Western Australia with the SEG Series and signed up 2019 Australian Speedcar Champion and good family friend Dayne Kingshott as their driver.

“Without a World Series crown to chase and the likelihood of any blue-ribbon events happening on the eastern seaboard this summer engaging Dayne and racing domestically in Western Australia seemed like the obvious choice,” stated Krikke Motorsport team manager Ryan Krikke.

“To be honest, not racing this season was never really going to be an option. I’m thrilled and excited to be able to offer Dayne the opportunity to race for us.”

Apart from the Krikke and Kingshott families having a long-standing friendship over three decades, which included the Krikke family’s car dealerships, Bunbury Toyota and Bunbury Subaru, sponsoring Dayne as a teenager in Junior Sedans through to the heights of Speedcars, Kingshott, who is also from Bunbury, is good friends with current Krikke Motorsport crew chief Matt Cochrane.

“Dayne and Matt go way back, as Matt was the crew chief on Dayne’sSpeedcars before coming to Krikke Motorsport team and I’ve known Dayne and his family for probably 30 years, so the chemistry is there already,” Krikke enthused.

“We are not going to be putting any pressure on Dayne whatsoever and I’m really excited to see him develop and see where this goes. His ability in a Speedcar is well known, we just need to transfer some of that across to the Sprintcar and he’ll be fine.”

Krikke mentioned that he hasn’t totally ruled out Madsen driving for the Krikke Motorsport team during the season ahead.

“If the borders open up and restrictions begin to ease and Kerry can return this season to Australia then we will try and chase the money events, if there is any with him and then Dayne will resume as the driver once Kerry returns to America,” he said.

“Winning a World Series title with Kerry is still our long-term goal but that can’t happen this season, so we’ll go have some fun and try and help Dayne and his speedway racing career along a bit.

“This may become the norm for us, if Dayne can develop into what we need from him this may be our programme going forward, he does some early shows, Kerry does the World Series and Dayne finishes the WA season out for us. It’s as much about developing Dayne as it is anything. I would love to think we are building on something for the future.”

Kingshott, who recently announced that he would be stepping away from running his family-owned Speedcar, he is extremely excited about the opportunity with the Krikke Motorsport team.

“I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the Krikke Motorsport car and see how we go as a team,” the 31-year-old racer said.

“During my career, I have had a little bit of Sprintcar experience with some other teams, but this is the first full-time opportunity I have received, so I’m looking to grab it with both hands and become competitive as quickly as possible.”

The first 2020-21 season outing for the Krikke Motorsport and Kingshott duo is set to be on the Saturday night of October 31 for what will be the opening SEG Series round at the Perth Motorplex.

Short Track Nationals on Tap for Kyle Offill

PETERSEN MEDIA: In what will be his final weekend of action in the Midwest before making his way back to his native California to close the season, Kyle Offill is set to make his first ever appearance at the Short Track Nationals in Little Rock, AR this weekend.

“It has been a really fun trip, and I am very thankful for the opportunity to get a lot of new places in 2020,” Kyle Offill said. “California is full of bullrings, so I am really excited about the Short Track Nationals this weekend to see how we can do against such a talented field of cars.”

Offill heads into this weekend’s event fresh off of last weekend’s ‘Fall Haul’ that took place at 34 Raceway in Burlington, IA.

“We had a pretty good car on Saturday night at 34 Raceway,” Offill added. “We were inside the Top-10, but then we got tangled up with another car. The Sprint Invaders don’t have a work area so we were done after the 10th lap or so.”

Finishing third in his heat race on Saturday night aboard the Country Builders/Ochoco West/Brown and Miller backed No. 88 entry, Offill would just miss out on a berth in the Dash and took the green flag from the 14th starting spot.

From the seventh row, Offill would get a nice start as he was able to quickly work his way into the Top-10. Not satisfied, Offill continue to fight forward as he would get up to the eighth spot within the race’s first 10-laps.

Fighting for seventh, contact with another car would ensue and it would cause subtle damage to Offill’s mount, but with no work area his night would come to an end.

“It was unfortunate to have our night end like it did,” Offill said. “The damage wasn’t too bad, but we needed to repair a few things, so it ended our night. Thanks to Dillon Paddock and all the guys for their hard work. I am looking forward to this weekend.”

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 27, Wins: 1, Top 5’s: 2, Top 10’s: 6

ON TAP: Offill will be at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, AR on Friday and Saturday night for the Short Track Nationals.

 

 

Champion Oil Provides Updated OBD-II Codes for Powerstroke, Cummins and Duramax

(Clinton, MO / 10.02.20) Champion Oil, a globally recognized leader in motor oils, gear lubes, brake fluids, and many other specialty automotive and heavy-duty lubricants, recently updated their technical bulletins on OBD-II Codes for Powerstroke, Cummins and Duramax.

Vehicle manufacturers have fitted on-board diagnostic (OBD) systems for many years that provide codes to help identify specific issues. Got a diesel? You can find the most recent diesel powertrain codes for Powerstroke, Cummins and Duramax at the Champion’s Diesel Technical Bulletin button at https://theblueflameblogger.blogspot.com/

But what do these systems and codes mean? An OBD system, or on-board diagnostic system, is an on-board computer fitted to your engine that monitors the performance of your car or truck, including its powertrain, ignition, gearbox and emissions system.

When the vehicles on-board diagnostics system identifies a problem with some aspect of performance, it turns on a dashboard warning light and registers a code that identifies the issue.

This engine code, called a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC), is stored in the OBD-II system and can only be accessed by connecting a scan, or diagnostic tool into the OBD-II diagnostic socket and reading the DTC off the display of the scanner.

This light is to let you know that a possible fault has developed in the engine management system or another function and may require attention. When you see this appear, check your owner’s manual for instructions on what action to take for your make and model of vehicle.

Diagnostic Trouble Codes, also known as engine fault codes, are five-digit codes that identify a particular problem in the car. These codes are displayed on the scanning tool when it’s connected to the OBD system.

The five-digit DTC includes one letter usually followed by four numbers (e.g. P1234). Each individual combination of letters and numbers relates to a specific problem within the vehicle, whether a generic issue or a manufacturer-specific error.

A DTC won’t tell you which specific part of your car needs fixing or replacing, but it will tell you - or a mechanic - what you need to test in order to diagnose the issue. Within the five-digit DTC, one of four letters (P, B, C, U) always comes first and relates to the part of the car that has the issue: P - powertrain, B - body, C - chassis, and U - network.

The second digit (either 0 or 1) relates to whether it’s a general issue (0) or a manufacturer specific problem (1), while the third corresponds to the specific system with the issue, such as the ignition, and can be either a number or letter. The final two digits are numbers that relate to the specific fault description, and there is no pre-approved key to help decode these final two digits.

Inside Line Promotions - WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa (Oct. 1, 2020) - Scott Bogucki has high hopes entering the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires.

The SawBlade.com sponsored driver has shown speed at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., during his handful of career starts. However, fortune has yet to smile on the Australian. This Friday and Saturday present the next opportunity during the penultimate Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event of the season.

"Luck will come into it," he said. "We've always had really good speed there, but haven't been able to put all of the pieces together. I'm hoping to change that.

"To be successful you have to overtake cars every time you're on the race track, which can be difficult if you get a loaded heat race. You hope the draw works out in your favor."

Bogucki's career-best finish during the Short Track Nationals came last year when he placed 17th on the final night. That also marks his career-best result at the oval.

"We were running sixth and an oil filter came loose and pumped oil all over me," he said. "We had a really good race car. I was waiting to burn some fuel off to move around more, but we didn't get the chance."

Bogucki raced in the Fall Haul last Saturday at 34 Raceway. He charged from eighth to second place in his Sprint Invaders heat race to make the dash. Bogucki won the dash and pulled the No. 2 to garner the second starting position for the A Main.

"We had a lot of speed," he said. "I made a mistake in the feature and spun out. I just missed the bottom and got in the middle. I couldn't save it in time. That was all my fault. That put us at the tail. We ran up to sixth at one point before we ended up eighth from 24th."

Sept. 26 - 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa - Heat race: 2 (8); Dash: 1 (1); Feature: 8 (2).

Dover Earns Ninth Win of Season During MSTS Season Finale at Rapid Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa (Sept. 30, 2020) - Jack Dover recorded his ninth feature victory of the season last Saturday, giving him at least nine triumphs during 12 of the last 13 years.

"My goal has always been 20 wins in a season," he said. "It seems like we have good years. This year we had a chance at winning three more races when dumb luck happened. I think the 20 wins is achievable, but we have to keep the bad luck away. However, nine wins, there's probably thousands of people that would love to have that number so nine wins is a good year. I'd just like to be better."

The Midwest Sprint Touring Series season finale at Rapid Speedway on Saturday started on a sour note for Dover before he advanced from fifth to second place in a heat race.

"We went out for wheel packing and had similar trouble with the engine not running right like we did during our previous race," he said. "We switched plugs, plug wires and the ignition box. One of those three things fixed it. It ran good the rest of the night.

"It was a heavy track so you had to do something right of the start of the heat race. That's what we did. Then I just rode around the bottom."

The heat race performance put him into the feature redraw and Dover landed the No. 1 to garner the pole position for the A Main.

"I ran the bottom the first couple of laps," he said. "Jody Rosenboom got around us. Once he did that we followed him. The track rubbered up and he got stuck behind a lapped car about midway through the race. I went around him and the lapped car on the outside. We led the rest of the way."

Dover's victory was his series-best eighth of the season. It also placed him sixth in the championship standings - only one point out of fifth - despite missing multiple races.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 26 - Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa - Heat race: 2 (5); Feature: 1 (1).

SEASON STATS -

27 races, 9 wins, 19 top fives, 22 top 10s, 23 top 15s, 23 top 20s

Kyle Schuett Nets Top-10 Finish With IRA Outlaw Sprint Series at Dodge County

Inside Line Promotions - PLYMOUTH, Wis. (Sept. 30, 2020) - Kyle Schuett posted a pair of top-15 finishes, including an eighth-place run, during a weekend doubleheader in Wisconsin with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series.

"We had a pretty good weekend," he said. "We're definitely improving."

Schuett's weekend began on Friday night with his second visit to Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, where he finished 14th three weeks prior.

"We could have used a little more gear for qualifying and I made a couple of mistakes so we timed in 12th quickest," he said. "That put us on the pole for a heat race. We got the lead at the start and led the rest of the way, putting us in the redraw for a dash."

Schuett drew the second starting spot in a dash.

"At the start I started about half a lane lower than the leader," he said. "Unfortunately, it was slick there. When I finally got up to the cushion, two cars had more momentum than me and got by. I dropped to fourth and finished there, putting us in the eighth starting spot for the feature.

"I kind of hung around eighth for most of the race and eventually finished there. I passed a couple of cars and then got passed by a couple of others. The good thing was that I was getting more consistent and improving as the race went on. It was a good finish."

Schuett moved on to Plymouth Dirt Track for Saturday night. It was also his second visit there.

"Most everyone ran the cushion in qualifying, but I ran the bottom and timed in 10th quickest, just two tenths off quick time," he said. "I started on the pole in my heat and led the first lap, but then Bill Balog got by and I finished second, one spot from making the dash."

That slotted Schuett 12th in the A Main lineup.

"I fell back to 16th or 17th and battled with a bunch of cars for most of the race," he said. "I eventually finished 14 th. We weren't terrible, but we need to get better. It was another learning night. I realize that I'm probably being a little too careful passing cars. Instead of giving them extra room, I should just slide them and go."

Next up for Schuett is during the Gold Crown Midget Nationals at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill., this Friday and Saturday with the Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Car Series.

"We've only raced Tri-City once before with a sprint car," he said. "That was our second sprint car race ever in April of last year. We finished fifth, but we got kind of lucky with others crashing and dropping out. I'm anxious to see how we do this time. We've raced about 30 times since then and we've improved a lot. It should be interesting."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 25 - Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. - Qualifying: 12; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 4 (2); Feature: 8 (8).

Sept. 26 - Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. - Qualifying: 10; Heat race: 2 (1); Feature: 14 (12).

Price Eyes Short Track Nationals Success Following Eighth-Place Finish During Fall Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (Sept. 30, 2020) - Robbie Price scored an eighth-place result Sunday night during the Fall Nationals at Riverside International Speedway.

The top-10 outing was his 10th of the season and served as a confidence booster following a tough previous weekend for the Cobble Hill, B.C., native.

"It was my first-ever visit to Riverside and it was a big eye opener for me," he said. "The track was really slick and that's not something I'm used to at all. We learned a lot and a top 10 was a breath of fresh air after some struggles."

Rain postponed Saturday's racing activities until Sunday and Price began the night by finishing seventh in a heat race. As a result, he earned the 13th starting spot in the A Main. At the completion of the 30-lap race he passed five cars to finish eighth.

"I needed to get to the bottom earlier in the heat race and I kind of buried us early in the heat," he said. "We were not really too bad in the feature, but we really weren't all that good either. It was a little out of my comfort zone, so it was a good thing to learn and get seat time on a track like that."

Price is set for two nights of racing this Friday and Saturday during the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires hosted by I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. The Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event pays $10,041 to win the finale.

Price has visited the track twice this season with a best finish of 25 th coming in June. With the 2020 racing season winding down, Price is hoping the positive momentum earned in Arkansas will lead to a solid effort against an expected large field of drivers.

"I'll be the first one to admit that I-30 has never been kind to me and I have always struggled at the place," he said. "But I'm not the kind of guy who gives up and we're going to come back and try to put something together to have a good run.

"I always seem to be good in hot laps and when the track changes I struggle. That tells me it is the driver and not the car. Hopefully, we can take what we've learned and maybe this weekend will be the one where we shake the bad luck. I'm looking forward to trying again."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 27 - Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. - Heat race: 7 (4); Feature: 8 (13).

32 races, 1 win, 4 top fives, 10 top 10s, 12 top 15s, 15 top 20s

Starks Produces Podium Performance During Fall Haul at 34 Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa (Sept. 30, 2020) - Trey Starks hustled to his third podium finish of the season last Saturday during the Fall Haul at 34 Raceway.

The Gobrecht Motorsports driver made the most of a last-minute decision to tackle the Sprint Invaders show.

"That was super last minute," he said. "I flew in on Saturday and drove straight to the track. I'd been there twice and we hadn't finished a race. It was good to actually finish a race there and run well."

Starks opened the night by advancing from eighth to third place in a heat race, overcoming a high pill draw that lined him up last.

"We drew the highest pill you can draw," he said. "It was actually cool because they gave us $100 for drawing the worst pill. With the passing point system us going eighth to third put us fourth in points."

Starks maneuvered from fourth to second place in the dash. That lined him up on the inside of the second row for the main event.

"We ran there the whole time and had a battle for a top-three spot," he said. "We got a decent start and were running third behind (Scott) Bogucki and (Dylan) Westbrook. Westbrook took the lead. Then just as we were getting by Scott he ended up spinning out. That put us up to second. We had some good restarts and had a bid for the lead, but I couldn't quite get him behind me. On one restart we fell to third and ended up running third until the last five laps. I picked up a different line. We got by (Paul) Nienhiser for second with two laps to go, but he got me back on the white flag lap. Without as many cautions and racing in more traffic I think we had a better car because I was running a different line, but it was a good, solid night."

Starks' third-place run was his third-best result of the season.

The team plans to be off for October before the season concludes Nov. 5-7 at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in Concord, N.C., during the Can-Am World Finals with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

Sept. 26 - 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa - Heat race: 3 (8); Dash: 2 (4); Feature: 3 (3).

Williamson Pumped to Make Short Track Nationals Debut This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - COLUMBIA, Mo. (Sept. 30, 2020) - One year ago Garet Williamson was sitting on the sidelines during the prestigious Short Track Nationals.

The plan was for Williamson to take on some of the nation's best 360ci sprint car drivers in the event. That changed when the Bryant Paver Motorsports driver hurt an engine the week before and couldn't make the trip.

All systems are a go in 2020. Williamson is rested after a week off from racing and he is looking forward to facing the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour regulars as well as other invaders during the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires this Friday and Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.

This is one of the biggest events on the season schedule for Williamson. Not only is the field stacked with 50-plus other drivers, Saturday's finale pays $10,041 to win.

"You just treat it like any other event," Williamson said. "It's Short Track Nationals, and obviously, everyone is there. Everyone is going to be watching. It's definitely a huge show, but it's not different than any of the other big shows we have run this year. You've just got to be ready to go."

It helps that Williamson has seen I-30 Speedway this season. In fact, he had a quick car at the racy facility against a star-studded ASCS field this summer.

Williamson started 12th and was running in the top five when the track rubbered up. He fell to sixth in the final rundown, but he earned some much-needed experience that he can take into this weekend.

"We ran decent there earlier this year so we have a little bit of confidence going into that place," he said. "It's a short track and I kind of like those places and seem to get around them pretty good. Hopefully, we can go back to what we know and what we did there at the beginning of the year and see how we roll around."

If past success wasn't enough, Williamson's speed as of late might be. He has been fast the last two months, recording wins and strong finishes against stiff competition.

"I think it helps a lot," said Williamson, who has three wins and 10 top-10 finishes this season. "We rolled around there pretty good at the beginning of the year and we've learned a lot since then. We are faster now than were then, and with that many cars, you've got to be on your game. Hopefully, we can be fast early in the night and get a good start for the feature."

PETERSEN MEDIA: Regrouping from a tough trip to Eldora Speedway for the Governors Reign, Ian Madsen and Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports are set to return to action this weekend at Williams Grove Speedway for the coveted National Open.

“We had a pretty tough go at Eldora Speedway and we actually hurt some engines and opted to take last weekend off,” Ian Madsen said. “We regrouped, and we are prepared as we head into the grueling National Open at Williams Grove Speedway.”

Since climbing aboard the BRM No. 17 in mid August, Madsen and crew-chief Wayne Priddy have gelled nicely has the team has put together some very strong runs only to see mechanical issues hamper them during their most recent action at Eldora Speedway during the Governor’s Reign event.

Madsen and company are poised as they prepare for this weekend’s National Open in PA, before taking part in next weekend’s All Star Circuit of Champions finale in Fremont, OH.

“We were all bitterly disappointed with how Eldora went for us,” Madsen added. “Issues really hindered us, and I know Wayne and I are capable of really good results. I am extremely thankful to Mike and Josh Baughman as well as Fisher Body Shop for this opportunity to finish out the season for them, and I am looking forward to having some good results.”

STAY CONNECTED: Keep up with Ian Madsen by following him on Twitter, @IanMadsen.

ON TAP: Ian and BMR will be in action during this weekend’s National Open at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, PA.

 

 

Walter caps 2020 on high note in IRA finale

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 30, 2020 – A season that began a bit on the rocky side, closed out on the rock solid side for Josh Walter and the Torque Racing team with a strong top-10 A-main showing at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 26. during a doubleheader weekend to conclude the 2020 Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association season.

The team’s final race weekend of the COVID-19-shortened 2020 campaign began with a return trek to the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam. Wis. on Friday, Sept. 25 for the IRA 410 Sprint Car Series Rick Schmidt Memorial Race at the sprawling half-mile facility.

The 15th-year Sprint Car racer opened the event by qualifying ninth in the 25-car IRA field with a lap of 17.214 seconds.

Walter then lined up second in the third IRA eight-lap heat race where he settled into second behind polesitter Kyle Schuett and held the position throughout the race to finish second.

Walter, who recorded a season-best seventh-place showing in his last appearance at Dodge County on Sept. 4, rolled off 12th in the 25-lap IRA A-main. The initial start was aborted when Jereme Schroeder stopped in turn two on the opening circuit.

On lap 2, Walter slipped to 13th before Jeremy Schultz powered past Walter on lap 15 to move the Plymouth racer back to 14th in the running order on the lightning fast track surface.

On lap 20, Walter battled back to pass Dave Uttech exiting turn four to move back to 13th. The second caution flag of the race appeared on lap 21 when Scotty Thiel slowed along the backstretch.

Following the restart, Walter engaged in a duel with Robbie Pribnow for 13th. After Pribnow moved past Walter on lap 22, but Walter came back to return the favor to regain 13th.

One lap later, Walter advanced to 12th when Danny Schlafer retired from the race. Walter went on to finish 12th in the event, which was won by Bill Balog.

One night later at The Plymouth Dirt Track for the Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships, Walter qualified 12th in the 29-car field with a lap of 12.176 seconds.

After starting on the pole of the third IRA heat race, Walter bolted away from outside front row starter Jeremy Schultz and led every lap en route to his first 10-lap heat race victory of the 2020 season and third career IRA heat race win to earn a spot in the dash.

After lining up third in the first four-lap IRA dash, Walter held the third position throughout the event to secure the fifth starting spot in the 30-lap IRA A main.

Walter ran sixth in the early going of the caution-plagued IRA A-main before dropping to seventh when Jeremy Schultz snuck by on lap 18. After the fifth IRA caution period on lap 22, Walter was running seventh before Scotty Neitzel swept around the Plymouth racer to move him back to eighth in the running order.

The sixth and final caution flag appeared on lap 29 when Scotty Thiel spun while racing for the lead in turn four. After Walter restarted seventh with a green-white-checkered flag scenario in place, Travis Arenz snuck past on the final lap to drop Walter back to eighth at the finish line in a race won by Bill Balog.

The eighth-place showing was Walter’s third top-10 A-main finish of the 2020 campaign.

“It turned out to a very different season that we originally planned, due to COVID-19,” Walter said. “We were originally going to do some travelling to some bucket-list tracks in Pennsylvania and race at Eldora Speedway this year. With the start of season delayed due to the pandemic, we decided to stick close to home and run the IRA events that fit in our personal schedule.

“We had a rough start to the season with a couple of mechanical issues and a few on-track incidents as well,” he said. “After all that settled down, the results really improved and we were able to pick up three top-10 finishes, a dash win. a heat race win and we qualified well in most of the races, so I’m pretty happy with that.”

Bard completes Lincoln sweep

Garrett Bard made it two-for-two at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night with a convincing PA Sprint Series feature win that brought him closer to the IMCA/RaceSaver national championship.

The Wells Tannery driver brushed aside a bad heat race starting draw and won that event, then moved from his fourth starting position to second on the opening lap and passed early leader Ken Duke Jr. in turn three following a lap four restart to take control of the feature, holding off a charging Devin Adams at the end of a race that highlighted several of PASS’s “young lions” racers.

Bard’s CG Racing Engines/Barnett Self-Storage #95 had led all 20 laps for a July 4 win at Lincoln, but in that race, Doug Dodson had mounted a torrid challenge that had included one successful slide job, countered by Bard’s successful cross-over. This time, while Adams closed the gap on the leader in the final couple of laps, Bard’s mastery of traffic kept his lead safe.

Duke, who had held off Adams for second until the midway point in the race, ended up third, ahead of recent high school graduate Justin Mills and Derek Hauck.

Dave Grube II, Landon Price, Dylan Shatzer, Doug Dodson and Dylan Smith rounded out the top 10.

Heat races for the 28-car field were won by Bard, Duke and Jake Frye, with Dodson taking the B-Main.

Frye was later involved in the night’s only major incident, jumping the cushion in turn three on lap three and flipping after hitting the wall. The Lewisberry teenager, who won his first feature earlier this year at nearby Trail-Way Speedway, was uninjured.

Dodson claimed the evening’s hard charger award with a gain of 10 positions – the next best “charge” was Bard’s, going from fourth to first. Dodson had withdrawn from his heat after a fuel line came loose, came from sixth to first in the B-Main (after surviving a tangle with John Walp as the cars were lining up), and then passed seven cars in the first three laps on the way to his hard-earned top-10 finish.

Bard’s win can only help his run for the 2020 IMCA/RaceSaver national championship. He went into the weekend with a 13-point lead over Nebraka’s Tyler Drueke. The points title is based on a driver’s best 20 finishes, and last weekend he extended the lead by a single point, even with a best finish of fourth. This is the final weekend for awarding points.

IMCA’s system awards points “bonuses” at the end, however, and the final results won’t be known until after that process.

Should Bard win, he will succeed Duke, the driver he passed for the lead Saturday, as champion. Duke last year became the first Pennsylvanian ever to win.

Bard had clinched the 2020 PASS championship already, and he holds a commanding lead over Walp in the Pennsylvania state points.

Saturday’s win was Bard’s eighth of the season in PASS and his 13th in 36 starts since joining the series last July. He also has multiple wins in the Laurel Highlands Sprint Series and the Allegheny Sprint Tour.

Bard makes case for championship

With a national championship on the line, Garrett Bard pulled out all the stops, led all the way in Selinsgrove Speedway’s 20-lapper Saturday night and won both of the PA Sprint Series features on the season’s final points weekend.

After a convincing win Friday night at Lincoln Speedway, Bard drew the pole position for the feature and led all the way, holding off a challenge from fellow young lion Derek Hauck – up from 10th starting position – at the end to win by 0.312 seconds.

2019 IMCA/RaceSaver national champ Ken Duke Jr. – who is not running enough races this year to defend his title – took third place, ahead of fellow veterans Doug Dodson and Jaremi Hanson.

Domenic Melair, Mikell McGee, Austin Graby, Kassidy Kreitz and Kruz Kepner completed the top 10.

“Derek’s really good between here and Port Royal, all these big tracks,” Bard said in victory lane. “He’s always fast, so when it really slicked up during that last caution, and I looked up and saw that I had a #2 in second and a 2 in third, I knew one of them was Derek, so I know he’s coming, and I just wanted to keep running my race. I tried to move down a little in three and four - it started to get real tight up top – and I think that helped.”

“I wasn’t very good in the heat, and fortunately, I got to start on the pole,” the winner continued. “The tracked slicked off enough, and I knew the car would be pretty good. It was probably a little too tight, and it got a little bit tighter in traffic, but I was just hoping it went green to checkered the whole way, because my car was really good in traffic.”

Bard thanked his sponsors – CG Racing Engines, Barnett Self Storage – after sharing a special thanks: “I’ve got to really thank my dad for all the hard work he’s done this whole year. We set out to try to win everything we could, and I don’t think we realized just how much would go into this – all the time – I think this is the 34th or 35th race we’ve run this year.”

With 39 RaceSaver sprinters on hand, qualifying events were critical, and the four heat races were won by Jared Zionkowski, Devin Adams, Dodson and Duke, who won his heat by more than a straightaway. McGee earned his first feature start with the series by taking the B-Main, after early leader John Walp dropped out.

The race was red-flagged in its first start when heat winners Zionkowski and Adams were involved in a turn one incident that also involved Jason Bergstresser and Fred Arnold. All drivers were OK, but their cars were done for the night. The only other caution flew for a slowing Ron Aurand on lap 12.

The early accident, taking out several cars at the front of the field, created opportunities for nice hard charger numbers later, and Austin Graby claimed the award for moving up the most spots with 16 (to finish eighth), while Mikell McGee, making his first RaceSaver feature start advanced 14 from 21st to 7th.

The race concluded PASS and IMCA/RaceSaver points, with Bard claiming both the PASS and Pennsylvania titles. Even though a bonus point system is applied before final IMCA/RaceSaver points, his claim on the national title seems hard to dislodge. Selinsgrove Speedway officials said that Bard and Duke had finished in a tie for the track PASS/IMCA/RaceSaver title.

PASS racers have an open weekend coming up before returning to action with the World of Outlaws at Port Royal Speedway on October 10. Only the top 26 in Port track points will be able to participate in that race.

Good Night Goes South for Kalib Henry and McColloch Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA: Traveling to Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA on Saturday night, Kalib Henry and company had a great night going, however contact from another car during the feature event would result in Henry retiring from the feature event early.

“We had a lot of speed all night long, but unfortunately we had a car get into us and it knocked our nose wing down in the feature,” Henry said. “I held on for as long as I could, but unfortunately I had to pull off early.”

Getting off to a very quick start at the central California facility, Henry timed the McColloch’s RV Repair/Express Sewer and Drain/Davis Truck Painting backed No. 17 machine in second fastest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, the Mather, CA driver would pick up a position as he finished third and punched his ticket into both the feature event as well as the Dash.

Finishing fourth in the Dash, Henry would take the green flag from the outside of the second row in the feature event on the slicked off racing surface.

Jumping into the third position as the feature came to life, Henry began working on second place when the early contact occurred. With damage to the front of his car resulting in a collapsed nose wing, Henry would instantly find himself with a different car to driver as the handling now became tough the work with.

Slipping back to fifth, Henry would do a great job of wrestling his machine around the 3/8-mile facility, though restarts were tough on him.

In the latter stages of the race, the issue became worse, and Henry would be forced to retire from the event just a few laps before the checkered flag flew.

“Other than the issue in the feature event, we made a lot of gains on this car, and really found a lot of speed,” Henry said. ‘I am looking forward to getting back to Placerville Speedway this weekend, back in the 17, and really feel like we will be battling up front.”

McColloch Motorsports would like to thank McColloch’s RV Repair, Express Sewer and Drain, Davis Truck Painting, ART Speed Equipment, RE Technologies, Hansen Machine, and Gary Morgan Graphics for their continued support.

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

ON TAP: McColloch Motorsports will be back in action with Kalib Henry on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway for the Mac Tiner Tribute.

Amantea Scores Career-Best Fifth-Place Finish With USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars

Inside Line Promotions - SHOEMAKERSVILLE, Pa. (Sept. 29, 2020) - Joey Amantea earned his career-best result behind the wheel of a 360ci sprint car last Saturday when he recorded a fifth-place outing at Bridgeport Speedway with the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars.

Amantea also competed in three nights of wingless micro sprint racing last week. He finished fourth and ninth during a pair of shows at Shellhammer Dirt Track to go along with a 21st-place result at Linda's Speedway.

"We had great results all week, but even if we had run terrible the other three nights the top five at Bridgeport made it all worthwhile," he said. "Not only did we check an accomplishment off our bucket list, but we did it behind the wheel of a No. 88j and it was probably my favorite race of the year so far."

Amantea kicked off the week last Wednesday at Shellhammer Dirt Track by winning a heat race from the fifth starting spot. He lined up on the inside of the second row for the feature, but struggled to find grip throughout the race and finished fourth.

"We went fifth to first in the heat race in three laps and I thought we had a good chance heading into the feature," he said. "We were not bad in the feature, but the front three drivers were all running great lap times and it was just hard to really capitalize."

On Friday Amantea ventured to Linda's Speedway in Jonestown, Pa., and he began the night by finishing second in a heat race. After lining up second for the feature courtesy of a redraw, he led early but an incident in traffic caused him to wreck while battling with the second-place car. He advanced back up to the 11th position after going to the rear, but his car jumped out of gear and ended his night. Amantea was credited with finishing 21st.

"We had a really good car early in the night and lucked out in the redraw getting the second starting spot," he said. "We led the first handful of laps and I got shoved up the track and ended up wrecked. We had a car good enough to finish on the podium, but luck just was not with us."

Amantea jumped behind the wheel of his wingless 360ci sprint car and headed to Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J., on Saturday. He finished third in a heat race to earn the fifth starting spot in the A Main. He ran as high as third and was inside the top five throughout the feature before ending fifth. The top five was his 19th of the season, but his first in the 360 sprint car division.

"I've had this race circled on my calendar since we started this deal and it wasn't a letdown at all," he said. "The cushion was all the way up to the wall and I used every inch of the track to move up to third. We slipped back at the end, but to get a top five against that competition with only a handful of starts to my name was pretty special."

Amantea wrapped up the week on Sunday back at Shellhammer Dirt Track to compete in the Shellhammer Slam IV. He finished fourth in a heat race before winning the B Main to earn the 18th starting spot in the feature. His hopes of taking home the $1,000 winner's share were dashed when he got caught up in a wreck on the opening circuit. Amantea rebounded to finish ninth for his 36th top 10 of the season.

"It was a pretty uneventful night, but we got caught up in a wreck on the first lap and spent the entire race making up ground," he said. "If we'd had more laps we would have gotten a better finish, but it just didn't work out."

Next up for Amantea is a planned three-race weekend highlighted by a trip to Georgetown Speedway in Georgetown, Del., on Friday with the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars. He will then jump behind the wheel of his family owned wingless micro sprint car for two consecutive nights of racing at Spirit Auto Center Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J., for the $4,000-to-win Danny Serrano Skyscraper Spectacular.

Hagar Rallies From Flip in Heat Race to Win Feature From 15th

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (Sept. 29, 2020) - Last Sunday featured a dramatic swing for Derek Hagar, who capped a night at Riverside International Speedway by posting his seventh feature victory of the season.

The Fall Nationals, which was postponed from Saturday to Sunday because of wet weather, began with Hagar lining up on the outside of the third row in a heat race.

"I got up to third," he said. "The racing was right around the bottom. I was on the guy in second and I nudged a rear bumper a couple of times to try to stay with him to carry momentum to get him in the corner. On the last lap he slipped off the bottom. I got underneath him and he crowded me. We rubbed wheels and he backed off. Then going into turn three he gassed it back up and ran into us. We ended up tipping over."

The contact made Hagar's car get upside down and he was unable to finish the race, which relegated him to the back of the starting lineup for the main event.

"I wasn't even going to run because I'm pretty much out of wings," he said. "I got undressed and in my street clothes. I was helping one of my 305 customers. I walked to the trailer and Bill, my crew guy, asked if he puts wings on it will I race it and I said yes.

"By Lap 15 I was up to third before a red came out. We really didn't need a caution or red because our car was great. On the restart the drivers in first and second went down to the bottom. I was up against the concrete and drove around them in turns three and four. We led the last 15 laps.

"Early in the race I was in the middle, bottom, top, wherever I could pass cars. Once I got clear track in front of me I moved to the top. It was so far around the top if I'd have moved up half an inch I would have been throwing sparks off the rear bumper. The track was slick from top to bottom with no cushion."

Hagar's charge from 15th to win also earned him the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

"It was special," he said. "It was a life lesson I hope for a kid or whoever is watching in the stands to never give up. We went from the lowest of lows in the heat race to the highest of highs in the feature. You never give up until that checkered flag waves and don't worry about the people trying to drag you down."

Hagar will ride that momentum into the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires this Friday and Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. The Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event pays $10,041 to win the finale. Hagar was victorious at the track in July, giving him a win at I-30 Speedway in five straight seasons and during six of the last seven years.

West Jr. Ties Career-Best Sprint Car Result With Seventh-Place Outing

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (Sept. 29, 2020) - Jeffrey West Jr. tied his career-best sprint car result last Sunday when he recorded a seventh-place finish at Riverside International Speedway.

West Jr. opened the Fall Nationals, which was held on Sunday instead of Saturday because of wet weather, by finishing where he started - second - in a heat race.

"The track threw us a huge curve ball the moment we got there," he said. "We started hot laps a couple of hours earlier than a usual race because it was on Sunday. By the time we went out for our heat race the track was slick from top to bottom. We didn't expect that. We just didn't quite have what we needed, but we were able to make the best of it.

"I fell back to fifth in the heat race. Two cars wrecked and I was able to get back to second on a late restart."

West Jr. lined up on the inside of the third row for the main event.

"We were decent and not far off the leaders," he said. "The first 10 laps we stayed in the top five. As the feature went on our car went in the wrong direction and we faded. We tried some different lines. I got really good running the cushion in turns three and four, which was my first time doing that. That felt good. We had a caution with about 10 laps to go. Jeff Swindell and I battled for five or six laps and he got me toward the end. I'm very happy with a top seven with our car handling like it did."

The seventh-place finish marked the third top 10 of the season for West Jr., who is in his first year behind the wheel of a 360ci winged sprint car.

Next up is the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires this Friday and Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. It will mark his third time racing with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. West Jr. earned a 17th-place result during his series debut at I-30 Speedway in June and he recorded a career-best 11 th-place showing with the series at Riverside International Speedway in July.

"For this weekend I don't have any expectations," he said. "I want to go there and do the best I can and soak up as much experience as I can. If we could make the A Main that'd be huge, but that's going to be really hard to do. We'll give it our best shot and that's all we can do."

Sams III Excited to Make Short Track Nationals Debut This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - NORTH PORT, Fla. (Sept. 29, 2020) - Danny Sams III is checking a bucket list item off this weekend when he tackles the 33 rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires.

The Sams LaMountain Racing driver made his debut at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., in June and will return to the oval this Friday and Saturday for one of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour's marquee events.

"It's super cool to be able to go to these big races and to be part of it," Sams III said. "I believe we learned a lot the last time. We had plenty of speed. A mishap in the B Main cost us a shot at making the feature, but I think we had a competitive car."

Sams III enters this weekend ranked 10th in the ASCS National Tour championship standings and he is in contention for the Rookie of the Year Award as the series only has four remaining races in 2020.

The Short Track Nationals is one of 360ci winged sprint car racing's biggest shows. The winner's share from the Saturday finale is $10,041, which is one of the highest in the division. The event routinely draws several dozen competitors from across the country seeking the stout payout as well as bragging rights.

"If we carry the momentum we gained two weekends ago hopefully we can make the show," he said. "We definitely have gained a lot of experience at these tracks that are new to us. We have a full notebook and it's great to return to tracks not starting out chasing a setup. Hopefully we can take another step forward this weekend."

Crockett Set for Third Career Short Track Nationals Start

Inside Line Promotions - BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (Sept. 29, 2020) - Roger Crockett will make his first COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires appearance since 2013 and just the third of his career this weekend.

Crockett is heading to I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., for the 33 rd edition of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event that runs Friday and Saturday.

"I actually haven't raced at that track very many times," he said. "I've maybe been there five times. I think we ran a Speedweek race with Paul (Silva) and then the Short Track Nationals in 2004."

Crockett placed third during a preliminary night at the 2004 Short Track Nationals and he recorded his career-best result at I-30 Speedway the following year when he finished second. Crockett added another top five when he hustled to a fourth-place showing at the bullring in June.

"Earlier in the year we were really good there," he said. "We're looking back at our notes and will head to the track the same way. Hopefully the track is similar throughout the course of the weekend. It was a lot of fun earlier in the year.

"The first time I went there I lived on the West Coast still and it was a super easy transition. Since I've been away from California I haven't done as much of that style of racing. People are a lot more aggressive now. That part of the racing has changed a bit. Sometimes there's wheel to wheel contact that I'm not into, but sometimes you have to be prepared to bang wheels."

Crockett enters the event ranked second in the ASCS National Tour championship standings with four nights of racing remaining this year. He is seeking his first win of the season and first-ever victory at I-30 Speedway.

"Your car has to be really good and maneuverable in an event like this," he said. "You have to have a few things go your way with a high car count like it will be as well."

Carney II Aiming to Top Last Year's Career-Best Performance at Short Track Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - LUBBOCK, Texas (Sept. 29, 2020) - John Carney II enjoyed a career-best run during the famed COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires last year.

The SawBlade.com Xiphos saw blade sponsored competitor finished second during the preliminary night before earning a third-place outing at the finale of the marquee event hosted by I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.

"I think last year at this race we started on the pole the first night so we were high point and we ran second," Carney II said. "We made the dash and ran fourth in it during the second night. I actually led probably 10 or 12 laps in the feature. We ended up with a third so I'm certainly looking to improve on that."

Carney II will return to the bullring this Friday and Saturday for the 33 rd edition of the event, which is sanctioned by the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

"We've always had a fast car there," he said. "Sometimes it's a matter of not getting tangled up with someone early in the night. It's not where you start in the heat race; it's who you start with. You always want to have one or two cars that you feel like you can pass. The biggest thing is not getting together with anyone in the heat race or the qualifier because that will ruin your weekend."

Carney II has visited I-30 Speedway twice this year. He was in contention for a top five and potentially a win during a start in June before contact resulted in a DNF. Carney II advanced from 20th to 13 th during his most recent visit in August.

Kerry Madsen Captures Top Fives With All Stars and World of Outlaws

Inside Line Promotions - LERNERVILLE, Pa. (Sept. 29, 2020) - Kerry Madsen produced a pair of top fives and three top 10s during four races last week.

The Killer Instinct Crossbows sponsored driver guided Big Game Motorsports to a runner-up result a week ago Tuesday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the opening night of the Governors Reign with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1. It was the best run of the week and marked Madsen's fifth top five of the season with the All Stars.

"I feel like we were really quick each night," he said. "In the Eldora deal we ran second and passed Brent Marks for the lead with two laps to go and he got back by. We were coming on good and reeling him in. I slid him in turns one and two. He turned down under it and found some grip down the backstretch. It was a really good run for us."

Madsen qualified fifth quickest, placed fourth in a heat race and won a dash prior to the podium performance in the feature.

He timed in 20th quickest the ensuing night during the event finale before winning a heat race to make the dash.

"The second night we put ourselves in a dash, but drew a really big number," he said. "We finished sixth, which started us 12th in the feature. We had a really good car in the A Main. I felt like we were a lot better than eighth. If we drew a little nicer toward the front of a dash, who knows. When you start that deep you need a dream run to get up through there."

Madsen gained a handful of positions to finish eighth.

Big Game Motorsports joined the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series for two races last weekend beginning on Friday at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio. Madsen qualified fourth quickest and won a heat race to make the dash. A seventh-place outing in the dash lined him up on the inside of the fourth row for the main event.

"We had a good run going and then got a left front flat tire," he said. "It was pretty hard to pass there. We were running around where we started, gaining a spot and losing a spot here and there. One of the guys we were racing with and I had minor contact and it popped the left front. We had to go to the work area."

Madsen restarted at the back of the field and advanced to a 17th -place finish.

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Lernerville Speedway, which hosted the Commonweath Clash. Madsen qualified second quickest in his group and won both a heat race and the dash to garner the pole position for the main event.

"We were really good," he said. "We qualified well and were really good in the heat. I felt like we were really strong in the dash, too. They did some track prep before the A Main. Starting on the bottom was a disadvantage because it was greasy so we lost a couple of spots right away. On the longer run we lost some pace. We had a yellow with two laps to go and our car came back alive. It was disappointing to end fifth. I thought we had a better car."

Madsen's fifth-place result was his fifth top five of the season with the World of Outlaws.

He will return to action this week with the Outlaws during the 58 th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. The event on Friday and Saturday culminates with a $75,000 top prize, making it the highest-paying winner's share in sprint car racing this year.

"I feel like we have good pace at Williams Grove," Madsen said. "Whoever wins is going to have to have a dream night in terms of getting yourself in position. If you can get yourself in position then you have a shot. We race well there so I think we have a legitimate shot to win."

Dominic Scelzi Highlights Busy Week With Top 10 During Power Series Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - PLYMOUTH, Ind. (Sept. 28, 2020) - Dominic Scelzi is fresh off a busy week that featured five races at three tracks in three different states during a seven-day period.

His best result came during that first night when he invaded Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., on Sept. 18 for the DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores/ Scelzi kicked off the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and the Midwest Power Series doubleheader by qualifying seventh quickest in his group. He then advanced from sixth to fifth place in a heat race and from 17th to ninth in the A Main.

"We went out a little early and didn't have a great time in qualifying," he said. "We got one spot in the heat to lock into the feature. In the main event I was running 15th with about seven laps to go. I started running the heck out of the top and was able to get up to ninth."

Scelzi's eight positions gained was tied for the second-most cars passed in the feature.

The ensuing night started better at Huset's Speedway. Unfortunately, the action was short-lived.

"We qualified better, going second quickest in our group, but we lost an engine about three laps into the heat race while racing for second," he said. "That ended our night early."

The team headed to Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, last Tuesday for the Governors Reign opener with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1.

"We were 14th quickest out of the 48 drivers in qualifying, which was good," he said. "However, I was seventh quickest in my group. The track was locked down so you couldn't really pass. We finished seventh in our heat race and we got by a couple in the B Main to finish ninth.

"The next night we went out a little bit later and didn't have the speed. I felt good, but we just didn't have the speed. I felt like it was every bit of the Kings Royal and the Knoxville Nationals. It was neat to be invited and to be a part of it. For whatever reason we didn't have the speed we needed to contend."

Scelzi timed in 36th quickest overall before finishing seventh in a heat race and 11th in the B Main.

The week wrapped up last Thursday at Plymouth Speedway during a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series show. Scelzi qualified 20 th quickest. He gained a position in a heat race to finish fourth, locking him into the 16th starting position in the feature.

"We didn't qualify very good," he said. "We got aggressive and were a little tight. In the heat race we picked up a spot and raced with (Logan) Schuchart for third. In the feature I worked my way to 10th. With about 11 laps to go I had a bad restart on the outside and ended up running 12th. We were racy, which was good."

The 12th-place finish was Scelzi's 39th top 15 of the season.

The team has had a recent change of plans and is returning to Scelzi's home state of California. The schedule for the remainder of the year will be decided in the near future.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 18 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 5 (6); Feature: 9 (17).

Paul Nienhiser Second With Sprint Invaders; Clinches Team Championship for Scott Bonar

PETERSEN MEDIA: Picking up another second-place finish aboard Scott Bonar’s No. 50 machine during the Fall Haul, Paul Nienhiser did his part in helping Bonar and the Midland Performance team earn the Sprint Invaders Owner Championship.

“I made a couple of mistakes once I got to the lead, and it cost us the win,’ Paul Nienhiser said. “It was still another great run for us, and it is very cool to get Scott and team this Championship.”

Locking into the Dash for Cash as Bonar sat within the Top-8 Owner’s points heading into the final event of the season with the Sprint Invaders, Nienhiser would capitalize on a front row starting position as he raced to the win and got his night off to a very nice start.

Finding himself on the front row of his heat race, Nienhiser would not get the same jump he got in the Dash for Cash, however he had a stout car underneath him and he made the top side work as he sailed to the win and qualified for the regularly scheduled Sprint Invaders Dash.

Running fifth in the Dash, the inversion draw would put the Chapin, IL driver back in the third row for the final Sprint Invaders feature of 2020.

With the top wearing out come feature event time, most of the field worked the low side of the speedway with the exception of Nienhiser. Working the razor thin cushion and gaining momentum, Nienhiser would surge ahead find himself in second.

Surging to the lead at the race’s halfway point, Nienhiser would miss a couple of his marks and slip back into the second spot.

As the race moved along, the track would begin to take rubber in sporadic places. Able to get back into the lead, Nienhiser would miss the rubber and it would see him lose the lead again as he was relegated back to second.

With rubber continuing to go down, Nienhiser would hold on to finish second which was good enough to give the team the Sprint Invaders Owner’s Championship.

“Matt Kinney built a great engine for this car, so to get this title for both Scott and him is really cool,” Nienhiser said. “Now that Sprint Invaders season is over, we are going to drop the 410ci in this car, and run a few races together to close this season out.”

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

ON TAP: While Cannon McIntosh will pilot the Paul Nienhiser Racing No. 9x this weekend during Gold Crow at Tri-City Speedway, Nienhiser will continue to pilot the Midland Performance No. 50.

Pokorski Motorsports doubles its pleasure in
2020 MSA season finale

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) Sept. 29, 2020 – Since debuting in 1993, the Pokorski Motorsports team has enjoyed many firsts over the course of a highly successful tenure competing in the sport of open-wheel racing on dirt tracks throughout the state of Wisconsin.

On Saturday, Sept. 26, the team enjoyed another landmark occasion as the father-son driving tandem of Paul and Alex Pokorski each competed in in separate 360 Sprint Car entries in the same racing program as the team’s 2020 season drew to a close at the Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

After sharing driving duties of the Pokorski Motorsports 360 Sprint Car with his father during the 2020 season, the younger Pokorski jumped at the opportunity to wheel the Doug Pietz-owned 4A car, while the elder Pokorski also competed in the team’s familiar blue No. 4 car in the final race of the season at Plymouth.

With 31 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing-Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Cars signed in for the program, Paul started eighth in the first 10-lap 360 Sprint Car heat race.

The 28-year veteran maintained the eighth spot on the fast and tacky track surface until lap 7 when he worked past Chris Larson into seventh in turn four. On the final lap, Paul slipped past Bill Taylor on the final lap to finish sixth.

Paul then lined up fourth in the 15-lap 360 Sprint Car B main with a spot in the 22-car A-main field on the line. After dropped to fifth on lap five, Tyler Davis ducked under the high-riding Pokorski on lap 7 to fall to sixth. Preston Ruh closed on Pokorski along the low line on lap 11. However, Pokorski moved to the low line on lap 12 and held the sixth spot over the final three laps to secure a berth in the season-ending A main.

After starting 22nd in the 25-lap A main, Paul worked the high line in the early going to work his way up through the field. By lap 17, Pokorski had advanced to 16th in the running order as the rapidly changing track surface had begun to slick off considerably.

On lap 23, Pokorski powered past Tyler Brabant to secure 15th, which is where he finished in the race, which was won by Will Gerrits.

After a motor issue ended the team’s night early in an MSA event at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, Sept. 24, Pokorski was pleased to have an incident-free close to the 2020 season after spending extra time on Saturday changing motors in the No. 4 car.

“Saturday was a long day,” Paul Pokorski said. “The motor swap took longer than I anticipated, but went reasonably smoothly. We got to the track with plenty of time. However, it was a bit difficult for me. I thought it was stressful enough for me to watch Alex in our car, but it was really stressful to watch him in a borrowed car.

“I can't thank Doug Pietz enough for giving Alex the chance to run some laps and end the season on a positive note,” he said. “We struggled a bit in the heat race, made it a little better for the B main and took a big swing for the A main and it was much better. After all this time, I'm still learning. In the end, I was not thrilled, but we went in the right direction.”

The 2014 MSA Masters Series champion enjoyed the opportunity to race side by side with Alex for the first time in the early stages of the A main.

“I was happy to be able to race with Alex,” Paul Pokorski said. “I was hoping to get to race with him at some point, I just didn't foresee it happening this way. Again, can't thank Doug enough. I was very happy that we both had so much support to make it work. The crew responded well. Everyone did anything they could do or were asked to do. We are blessed.”

Alex Pokorski opened his first race behind the wheel of the Doug Pietz-owned 4A car from the third starting spot in the fourth 10-lap 360 Sprint Car heat race.

On the opening lap, Tyler Tischendorf worked around Pokorski to seize third. However, Alex battled back to regain third with a nice low pass in turn three on lap 2. Pokorski held the third spot throughout the race to earn a spot in the 25-lap A main.

After starting 12th, Alex dropped to 21st in the running order on lap 9. Pokorski, who was competing in his third career 360 Sprint Car A main, stayed smooth and steady over the course of the 25-lap event to come home 20th in the race.

“I was excited to be back behind the wheel,” Alex Pokorski said. “Being in Doug's car didn’t really change anything about how I drove it. The heat race wasn’t my smoothest race by any stretch, but the car was pretty fast and I had a good starting spot that I was able to hold on to.

“For the A main we made some changes to the car and they didn’t quite work like we hoped,” he said. “I started on the outside, but I was a bit hesitant to try to run the cushion because I’ve never done it before. I ended up having to run through the middle for the first few laps and that’s not the place to be on a dry slick track. When I was able to get to the bottom, I felt more comfortable and was able to do a little better. It never feels good when you go backwards, but sometimes it happens.”

Alex savored the opportunity to race side-by-side with his father in an A-main event.

“The laps I was racing next to my dad were cool,” Alex Pokorski said. “I have never gotten to race him competitively before. I was always something I’ve wanted to do, so I have to thank Doug Pietz for giving me the chance to do it.

“Unfortunately, my dad beat me on this occasion,” he said. “I’m glad he did well though after starting from the back. Next year my dad and I are hoping to do something similar to what we did this year with splitting seat time, but nothing is set in stone as of right now.”

On Friday, Sept. 25, Paul Pokorski competed in the Midwest Sprint Car Association Fuzzy Fassbender Memorial event at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis.

With 24 MSA 360 Sprint Car signed in for the event, Pokorski started fourth in the first eight-lap heat race. Pokorski passed Scott Conger in turn two on the opening lap to take third and was closing rapidly on the second-place car of Brandon Berth and leader Tyler Davis when the car began to slow on the final lap.

With smoke billowing from the engine compartment, Pokorski pulled into the infield with a broken piston and was credited with a seventh-place finish in the race.

The engine issue forced the team to scratch from the remainder of the program and prompted an engine change in the No. 4 car for the 2020 PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Car season finale at Plymouth on Saturday, Sept. 26.

“Any time the night is cut short, it is disappointing, but especially at Dodge County,” Paul Pokorski said. “It is such a unique place and we only go a few times a year. The car felt good in the heat race. I was having fun and was starting to think we were going to have a shot at winning it. Then it went up in smoke.”

After competing in a COVID-19-shortened, 17-event season in 2020, Paul Pokorski is looking forward to returning for what he hopes will be a full season of racing in 2021.

“Our only plan for certain at this point is to do it all again, hopefully free of COVID-19 or other restrictions, next year,” Paul Pokorski said. “I can't wait. For us, 2021 starts now.”

ELDORA TAMER: Marks and CJB Take Night One of Governors Reign September closes with even more strong finishes as Grove point battle tightens

CARLISLE, PA. - September 29, 2020 - It would generally be unthinkable to put on a race of over 40 of the best sprint car drivers in the world at one of the marquee facilities in the world without fans in the stands............ but this is 2020.

Brent Marks and the CJB Motorsports team made their way to Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio on Tuesday, September 22nd and Wednesday September 23rd to contest the Governors Reign, an invite only event put on for a live streaming audience at home. On the opening night, the team timed in first in their group, finished fourth in their heat race and second in the dash before claiming victory in the feature.

Marks was off to a fast start the following night as he timed in fourth in his group, won his heat race and the his dash before coming home fourth in the feature.

Friday, September 25th saw the team trying to chase down Freddie Rahmer for the Williams Grove Speedway track championship. Marks, 145 points back, continued to show a veterans prowess as he timed in 13th, finished third in his heat race and third in the feature.

The week of racing and the month of September wrapped up for the CJB crew with the Jim Nace Memorial at Selinsgrove (Pa.) Speedway. Marks timed in seventh, finished second in his heat race and was running in the top-5 before tire failure with four laps to go sent him to the work area. The team rallied to finish eighth.

"Eldora was great," said Marks, pilot of the #5 M&M Painting and Construction, BAPS Paints, Fredericksburg Eagle Hotel, Alkaline 88 Water, R.E. Pierson Construction Co., Wolfrun Landscapes, Nyce, Crete & Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn and Landscape, Ecynbro Trucking machine. "Both nights were good and the whole team did a great job. We had a lot of speed and was in contention to win on night two, as well. We just fell a bit short but with it being my first time at Eldora with CJB, I am really proud of our performance. We had fast cars all week. Another top three at Williams Grove and was running top five at Selinsgrove until our right rear tire blew at the end."

The team now has the month of October to look forward to. Up first is one of the crown jewels of the sport; the Champion Racing Oil National Open at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday and Saturday, October 2nd and 3rd. The CJB team will be looking for victory in an event both car and driver have won.

"Our car is really strong," said Marks, the 2019 winner of the National Open. "I believe we have what it takes to win the National Open. I need to get qualified and just have solid nights. Our car is more than good enough to win those races. We just need everything to go well."

Austin Liggett Pockets Midget Win at Antioch Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Making the trip to Antioch Speedway on Saturday night, Austin Liggett was able to pick up his first Midget win of the season as he wired the field during the 30-lap feature event.

“We had some bad luck in our heat race, but the inversion draw went our way and our car was absolutely dialed in,” Austin Liggett said.

With the pill draw lining up heat races rather than qualifying order on this night, the Tracy, CA driver lined his Excel Environmental Services/Liggett Trucking/Tool Technology backed No. 83 machine up in the third starting position.

When his heat race got underway, Liggett would take evasive action as a car would lose the handle in front of him. Able to avoid the fray, Liggett would fall all the way to the back of the pack.

Able to regroup, Liggett would get all he could as he rallied to finish fourth and waited to see where the inversion draw would place him in the feature.

Lady Luck proved to be on Liggett’s side on this night, as the eight pill was pulled and it would put Liggett on the outside front row of the 30-lap feature event.

From his front row outside starting position, Liggett jumped out to the early lead as he quickly took a liking to the highside of the speedway. Ripping the cushion to perfection, Liggett would set a dominant pace as he never looked back in this one.

With his machine stuck on the curb, Liggett would continue to leave the field in his wake as he raced to his second overall win of 2020 in just his fourth start of the season, and his first Midget win of the year.

“We had a little luck on our side with the draw, but our car was good in the feature,” Liggett said. “My Dad and Matt really had this thing working up top, and I had fun ripping it up there. The track was awesome, and it was a really fun night of racing.”

Austin Liggett Racing would like to thank Excel Environmental Services, Liggett Trucking, Tool Technology, Hurst Fabrications, Maxwell Industries, Shine Photography, ZMAX Racing Oil, and Transport Products Unlimited for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-4, Wins-2, Top 5’s-4, Top 10’s-4

ON TAP: At this time, Liggett is unsure when his next race will be.

Shane Hopkins Third at Adobe Cup

PETERSEN MEDIA- Traveling to Petaluma Speedway on Saturday night, Shane Hopkins turned in a very strong performance at the Sonoma-Marin County Fairgrounds as he picked up a third-place finish during the Adobe Cup.

“We had some engine troubles a week ago at Placerville Speedway, and on Saturday those were behind us and we really had a strong night,” Shane Hopkins said. “It was one of those nights where it really has me excited for the Tiner race this Saturday back in Placerville, CA.”

Running the dual heat format at the Adobe Cup, Hopkins would draw in the sweet spot that saw him line up in the second row of both is races. Advancing from fourth to second in his first heat, Hopkins would advance to second from third in his second heat and qualify for the Top-8 qualifying session.

Moving into the two-lap qualifying session, Hopkins would time the High Sierra Industries/C&H Motor Parts/ARP backed No. 21 entry in sixth quickest, which lined him up in the third row of the feature event.

From his third row starting position, Hopkins would do a nice job or working his way through the Top-5. Battling with the likes of DJ Freitas and Jake Haulot, Hopkins would soon find himself in the third position on the famed ‘Gumbo’ surface.

Battling with Freitas late for the second position, Hopkins would end up picking up a third place finish and taking the final spot on the podium.

“For some reason, the Adobe Cup is a race that I have always had pretty good success at,” Hopkins said. “It was a fun night of racing, and great to get up on the podium. I have to give a big shoutout to my grandpa for lending us a truck to tow our trailer to the track as all of our trucks are servicing fire fighters at this time.”

Hopkins would like to thank High Sierra Industries, , C&H Motor Parts, ARP, ADCO, Anrak, C&H Veteran Enterprises, Brian Sperry Racing, Capitol ACE Hardware, King’s Meats, LRB, Gary Morgan Graphics, Jake Morgan Racing, Johnson Motorsports, Joe Hunt Magnetos, Image Salon and Spa, PT Shocks, Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Kyle Johnson Racing, and Petersen Media for their support in 2020.

Carrick Scores Top-10 at Gas City During ‘Double-Double’ Weekend

PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to the seat of the Petry Motorsports Midget over the weekend in Indiana, Tanner Carrick would finish 10th on Friday night at Gas City I-69 Speedway before a 13th place finish at Kokomo on Saturday night.

“We had really good Speed on Friday night,” Tanner Carrick said. “It was tough to pass, we got caught up in an early wreck and salvaged the night with a Top-10.”

Kicking the weekend off at Gas City I-69 Speedway on Friday night, Carrick would time the FK Rod Ends/K1 Race Gear/Arai backed No. 35 machine in fifth quickest in qualifying time trials.

Heat race action saw the Lincoln, CA driver finish in the fifth position, which forced him into the night’s “B” Main.

Transferring out of the semi, Carrick would take the green flag from the 13th starting position. When the race came to life, Carrick would get to work early, but he would get collected in a wreck and be forced to the tail end of the field.

From the 22nd position, Carrick had his elbows up as he worked all over the speedway as he raced towards the Top-10. Able to rally from the tail, Carrick would salvage the night with a 10th place finish despite the early incident he was involved in.

Traveling to Kokomo Speedway on Saturday night for the second leg of USAC’s Double-Double weekend, Carrick would get off to a bit of a rough start as he timed in 15th fastest in time trials.

Moving into his heat race, Carrick’s fifth place finish would again force him into the semi, though his third place finish that event would move him into the feature event.

Lining up 17th in the feature, Carrick struggled to get going as he could never quite crack the Top-10. On the famed Indiana bullring, Carrick would try everything in his arsenal, but would end up with a 13th place finish when the checkered flag was displayed to the field.

“Saturday night we just struggled to get going all night long,” Carrick said. “It was a tough go in the feature, but I do have to thank everyone at Petry Motorsports for all of their hard work all weekend long.”

Tanner Carrick at Petry Motorsports would like to thank Arai, K1 Race Gear, Mobil1, FK Rod Ends, Keizer Wheels, ZMax, DR Horton, Toyota TRD, CVC, Cemex, BK Titanium, Interstate Oil Company, Emerald, and Harris & Sloan for their support.

2020 BY THE NUMBERS- Starts-27, Wins-0, Top 5’s-5, Top 10’s-15

ON TAP: Carrick will return to the Carrick Motorsports No. 83T on Saturday night in Placerville, CA.

NEXT WEEK! $2,500 Possible to Win Sprint Car Bandits FALLS TOWN SPRINT SHOWDOWN – SAT. OCT. 10th at Monarch Motor Speedway !

Wichita Falls, TX (9/28/20) by
DarinShort.com. Fans and race teams that have visited the new Monarch Motor Speedway​ (west side of Wichita Falls) know that it features incredible dirt track racing with state-of-the-art facilities. And for the second time this season, a blockbuster event
is taking place at the ¼ mile ultra-fast speed plant featuring many of the best dirt track racers in the region with the running of the Sprint Car Bandits​® (SCB) “FALLS TOWN SPRINT SHOWDOWN” 360C.I. Shootout, paying $2,000 to win and $300/start on Saturday,
October 10th at 7pm.

Joining the 360C.I. winged sprint cars will be the popular USRA Tuners, the

Milestone Now600 TOWR Micro Sprint Series

and the Mod 600’s. Note that the Sprint Cars will be racing 1st or 2nd division out for the feature events.

:30 Second Rewind from the May 9th SCB Monarch event: 12th place starter John Carney II coming from 12th to take the lead the middle half of the race, while Channin Tankersley snuck by on a quickly transitioning surface
on lap 21 to grab his 2nd career Sprint Car Bandits series feature event and $2,100 - topping a field of 39 other competitors. Kyle McCutcheon would become the West Texas Raceway sponsored Hard Charger recipient, coming from 15th to 2nd and collecting $1,300.
Colorado's Jake Bubak Racing would finish 3rd with John Carney in 4th and Michael Day finishing 5th after starting 9th.

I think it’s also worth a :30 Second Rewind of the 2019 SCB Monarch event as well: An unforgettable night of wild in-your-face action would take place after overnight storms made for a total slurp-fest on the racing
surface with elbows-up high speed drama taking place in every division all night long. The SCB feature event saw Will Eggimann (2019 SCB series champion) wrestle the lead away from John Carney II and Tim Crawley. Eggimann would lead til the 2-to-go flags were
waved when a lapped car got crossed up and started flipping in front of the lead pack, resulting in Eggimann’s top wing being torn off the car. During the red, with just two laps to go, Eggimann and team decided it was not a safe idea to restart the event
sans top wing leading the field…so he went pit-side and John Carney II would take home the $2,000 winners prize, with Harli White driving the wheels off her
#17w sprinter
coming from 21st to 2nd after a first-lap skirmish.

BACK TO 10/10/20: Tommy Bryant of Cabinets By Tommy LLC in Granbury Texas has stepped up to provide the 360C.I. Sprint Car Bandits® drivers three exciting bonuses for this event with the Cabinets by Tommy LLC $500 Dash
For Cash, $200 Hard Charger Award and $100 to the 9th place driver on the 9th lap of the A-feature!

Here’s how the Cabinets by Tommy LLC $500 Dash For Cash will work at Monarch Motor Speedway on Saturday, October 10th:

- All SCB teams will draw in and qualify in their heat races as normal, with normal series passing points.

- At the conclusion of the heat races, the top 2 finishers from each heat race will advance to the Cabinets by Tommy LLC $500 Dash For Cash.

- The Dash will be lined up by draw, and the winner will take home an additional $500 from Cabinets by Tommy LLC!

The SCB series has a unique rules package that allows teams to use their current equipment (especially in the engine compartment) yet curbing nightly tire expense...which helps equalize the competition with teams of
varying budget sizes. The SCB “20° wing angle rule” also helps by freeing up the cars to be able to pass easier in many cases that also helps reduce excess tire and engine wear. Our ‘one rear tire all night long’ rule has not only saved racers thousands of
dollars over the past four years, but to date, we’ve yet to have one tire fail (blow) due to excess tire wear in any feature race we’ve held.

All these small, yet effective changes, have been accomplished without the racers having to purchase something out of the ordinary. And we essentially haven’t changed the rules since the inception of the series at the
end of 2015.

And let’s face it, since the events of 9/11/2001 – and now as of late, a lot of the economics of the sport of dirt track racing have changed drastically (especially the cost of travel, track insurance, general crowd
sizes, cost of racing components), yet there really hasn’t been much being done on a nationwide level to help counteract those economic impacts. We aren’t trying to say we’ve ‘fixed’ all those impacts, but at least we are doing something to help curb racer
expenses – and it’s working.

Our rules package certainly has made for exciting and unpredictable racing outcomes – as there have been 23 different feature winners in the past 38 series events!

the racy 1/4 mile speed plant - paired three more exciting racing divisions!

Brock Zearfoss fifth in Selinsgrove National Open; Williams Grove National Open next

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (September 28, 2020) – Despite a pair of tough outings against the All Star Circuit of Champions at Eldora Speedway, highlighting the two-day Governors Reign with an 18th-place finish during the $52,000-to-win finale, the “Jonestown Jet” Brock Zearfoss turned the corner and rebounded in a big way during Selinsgrove Speedway’s National Open on Saturday, September 26, eventually capping the $20,000-to-win program with a fifth-place finish after starting in the exact same position. With the result, the former Port Royal Speedway track champion increased his season top-five tally to 21.

With the intent to keep his momentum rolling in the right direction, Zearfoss, driver of the Brock Zearfoss Racing, Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., BAPS Auto Paints & Supply, Meckley’s Limestone Products, Berkebile Oil Company, Klick Lewis Cars, J.P.

A $75,000 winner’s share will be up for grabs on Saturday evening, the largest paying program on the 2020 sprint car calendar.

With redemption on the brain, Zearfoss will attempt to outdo his 2019 National Open performance and qualify for the 40-lap showcase.

“We are pretty determined. I think this team is more than capable of making some noise this weekend, if not be in the hunt on Saturday night,” Zearfoss said, a former World of Outlaws winner at Williams Grove Speedway. “It’s been a really odd season, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t lost focus. There is a lot of money up for grabs at Williams Grove and we’d like to take the biggest portion of it home with us.”

Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing will enter Williams Grove’s prestigious two-day affair with a pair of wins in 2020, one of which against the All Star Circuit of Champions at Southern Oklahoma Speedway in mid-June.

Dietrich scores top-tens during visits to Williams Grove and Selinsgrove; $75,000 on the line Saturday

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (September 28, 2020) – Two more starts resulted in another pair of top-ten finishes for Gettysburg, Pennsylvania’s Danny Dietrich, this time scoring ninth and sixth-place outcomes during visits to Williams Grove Speedway and Selinsgrove Speedway, respectively. The defending Williams Grove Speedway track champion, and recent Selinsgrove Speedway PA Sprint Speedweek main event winner, now owns a whopping 46 top-ten finishes in 2020, 31 of which scored inside the top-five.

Dietrich was battling for a top-five during Williams Grove’s Outlaw Tuneup on Friday when the driver of the familiar No. 48 was forced to take evasive action, completing a 360-degree spin to miss being involved in a caution; “Double-D” finished ninth.

The following evening during Selinsgrove Speedway’s $20,000-to-win National Open, Dietrich rallied from 11th to finish sixth.

“It’s all about getting ready for Williams Grove’s National Open,” Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, Graver’s Garage, No. 48 sprint car. “This is what we’ve been working toward. Ever since they announced they’ll be paying $75,000, that race has been on our minds and taking up much of our focus. I’m ready to get things going and I’m sure my team will say the same.”

Featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, Williams Grove Speedway’s annual National Open will headline action at the world-famous paperclip on Friday and Saturday, October 2-3. Saturday’s 40-lap finale will award a $75,000 payday.

ST. HELENA, California (September 28, 2020) - Despite a wave of bad luck and frustrating results that seemed to plague his final week on the east coast, St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu managed to find some light and scored a top-five outcome during World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series competition at Wayne County Speedway on Friday, September 25. Abreu finished fifth against the Greatest Show On Dirt, powering forward from the outside of row four after qualifying through his respective heat race. In fact, the former All Star winner at Wayne County battled his way to fourth, but ten-time Series champion, Donny Schatz, reclaimed the position forcing Abreu to settle for fifth.

Unfortunately, Abreu’s luck only proved to be valuable in Orrville, Ohio. The six-time feature winner in 2020 suffered from mechanical failure during night one of Eldora Speedway’s Governors Reign, only to weigh two pounds light at the scales on night two, ultimately erasing all hope for a shot at the $52,000 top prize.

Mechanical misfortune would strike again during Selinsgrove Speedway’s annual National Open on Saturday, September 26. Abreu started tenth on the feature grid, but would eventually surrender his place in the running order and settle with an 18th-place score.

“If it wasn’t for bad luck, we would have no luck at all. At least we were able to put together a great night against the Outlaws at Wayne County Speedway. We are really proud about that,” Rico Abreu said, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Davis Door Company/J. Davidson Scrap Metal/Wiser Golf/The Wiser Agency/Stadelhofer Construction/Self Made Racing/Salty’s BBQ/Priority Aviation/No. 24 sprint car. “I just want to thank all of the fans for supporting us during our time in the Midwest and east coast, especially our fans in Pennsylvania. We spent a lot of time in Posse Country this summer and we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. You guys make us feel right at home and we appreciate everything. I can’t wait to get back. Thanks, everyone.”

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will unveil future plans in the coming days. Nothing has been disclosed, but those curious to find out more should keep up on all of Abreu’s social media outlets.

2020 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: 6018 points | Third (98-points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 28, 2020) - Ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz, returned to Series victory lane during the recent weekend, highlighting a five-day stretch of All Star Circuit of Champions and World of Outlaws competition with a win at Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Indiana, on Thursday, September 24. The World of Outlaws triumph was Schatz’ fourth of the season, taking command on lap 21 after race leader, Sheldon Haudenschild, suffered from mechanical misfortune.

“These (Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing) guys kept digging,” said Schatz in Plymouth victory lane. “We know the road to the top. We know the road to the bottom. These guys just keep working. They’ve tried to get a handle on the horsepower (of the Ford FPS 410 engine). This is a different combination for tonight and obviously everything that’s happened shows it’s going in the right direction. We’re happy about that.”

Schatz’ Plymouth Speedway victory kicked-off three straight nights of World of Outlaws competition, nearly trumping his $10,000 win with a fourth-place run during the WoO return to Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio, on Friday, September 25. Schatz started in the exact same position.

A visit to Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, September 26, capped the three-day stretch; Schatz finished tenth from 13th.

Before igniting three consecutive Outlaw starts, Schatz joined the All Star Circuit of Champions at Eldora Speedway and took part in the first-ever Governors Reign on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 22-23. Concluded with a $52,000-to-win finale, Schatz finished tenth and 19th, respectively, during the two-day showstopper, forced to surrender a top-ten running position on Wednesday after his nose wing detached; the Fargo-native recovered to finish 19th.

Donny Schatz and the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Advance Professional/Carquest Auto Parts/Technet Professional Automotive Service/Ford Performance/Mobil 1/Sage Fruit/Curb Records/Absolute Automation & Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Digital Ally/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car team will continue their 2020 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with the Williams Grove Speedway National Open on Friday and Saturday, October 2-3. The two-day, crown jewel event will be headlined with a $75,000-to-win main event on Saturday evening.

Schatz, who will enter the weekend third in the current World of Outlaws standings, is a five-time champion of the Williams Grove Speedway National Open.

TWO CLASSICS, ONE SEASON: Oswego's 64th Classic Weekend to Run May 27-29, 2021

OSWEGO, NY (September 27, 2020) - With the COVID-19 pandemic having wreaked havoc on the 2020 racing season, cancelling Oswego Speedway’s entire 70th Anniversary slate, anxious Supermodified fans and teams can now mark their calendars for May 2021, which will conclude with the 64th running of International Classic Weekend.

Although the 64th edition of the Classic was initially postponed until September 3-6 2021, track management has instead opted to give everyone the opportunity to be part of something never done before in Oswego Speedway’s history; two Classic Weekends, in one season.

“We are thrilled to announce plans to hold two Classics in the 2021 season,” said track owner John Torrese. “The great support we have received from the fans, race teams, and community through these unparalleled times has been overwhelming. It is very exciting to give everyone a really big thing to look forward to as we begin the countdown to May 2021.”

While private track rentals and shared sessions will be available throughout the entire month of May, Classic Weekend 64 will get underway on Thursday, May 27, 2021 with an official opening practice session held from 5 to 9pm.

On Friday, May 29, the first competitive racing of this historic weekend will take place, as the Sunoco New York Super Stock Series headlines with a full, action packed program under the lights for fendered racers.

Sticking with tradition, Friday will also serve as ‘Pole Day’ for Oswego’s hometrack divisions, with Classic time trials for Novelis Supermodifieds, Pathfinder Bank SBS, and the J&S Paving 350 Supers all on the docket.

Finally, Classic Weekend 64 will conclude Saturday night, May 29, with the 64th International Classic 200 for Novelis Supermodifieds, 29th Classic 75 for Pathfinder Bank SBS, and the 3rd Classic 35 for J&S Paving 350 Supers. The 200 will be run under the lights, with the green flag waving at 7pm.

Prior to this special, once in a lifetime weekend, Oswego Speedway will open up early in the month of May, with an initial Open Practice on Saturday, May 1 from 1 to 5pm.

One week later, on Saturday, May 8, the 70th annual Season Opener takes center stage, which will see a regular event for Novelis Supermodifieds, Pathfinder Bank SBS, and the J&S Paving 350 Supers. Full points will be awarded towards the 2021 track championship.

The Speedway will host a second weekly show, also included in the final 2021 point standings, a week later on Saturday, May 15. Each of the opening events will feature races of 50, 30, and 25-laps for the Supermodifieds, Pathfinder Bank SBS, and 350 Supers, respectively.

Saturday, May 22, has been reserved as an off week to allow teams to prepare for the Classic, or could serve as a potential rain date should weather impact the May 8 or May 15 programs.

The 65th annual edition of Budweiser International Classic Weekend will now run on schedule from September 3 to 6, 2021. Divisions and other details for the September edition of Classic, as well as the full 2021 Oswego Speedway schedule, will be announced at a later date.

A full copy of the May 2021 schedule, including a preview of the detailed outlook for Classic Weekend 64, is viewable at the bottom of this press release.

Those interested in purchasing tickets or camping for the 64th edition of Classic Weekend, will be able to do so in the near future. Fans are asked to check OswegoSpeedway.com, and track social media outlets, for more information over the next few weeks.

As always, those who have already renewed their tickets and camping for Classic Weekend 64, do not need to do anything. Your seat in the grandstands or spot in the campgrounds is already reserved.

Ticket holders and campers for Classic Weekend 64 will again have the opportunity to renew for Budweiser Classic Weekend 65. A mandatory renewal date will be posted next summer. Those who do not renew their tickets or camping by this date, will have seats and campsites released and made available for purchase by other patrons.

HOMETOWN HERO: SHELDON HAUDENSCHILD BRINGS DOWN THE HOUSE AT WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY; HOLMES HAS COMEBACK WIN IN SUPER STOCKS

Orrville, Ohio

Friday, September 25,2020

By Nick Graziano & Mike Swanger

Sheldon Haudenschild had to pause. His words caught in his throat. An emphatic cheer filled the silence while Haudenschild collected his emotions. The Wooster driver made a dream come true- for himself and thousands of his Ohio fans. He won at home. After testing the limits of his NOS Energy Drink #17 car for 35 laps around the Wayne County Speedway- about 15 minutes from his home- Haudenschild parked it in Victory Lane.

"I don't know what to say, man," Haudenschild said before taking a pause. "These fans are bad ass. I knew when we'd get a race here the fans would show up. I'm glad they did. I can't thank my team enough. It's a once in a lieftime opportunity for a 27 year old from Wooster." The win is Haudenschild's 6th World of Outlaw NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series victory of 2020 and his 1st Series win at his home track.

He entered the $15,000 to win event presented by Slick Woody's Cornhole Co. with several laps of experience around the 3/8 mile track and 7 wins- two with the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Cars and five with the All Stars. The experience proved beneficial as Haudenschild dominated the night as he was fastest overall in Hot Laps and Qualifying- earning himself a prize package from Slick Woody's, won his Drydene Heat Race and then finished third in the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash after starting fifth.

Reigning champion Brad Sweet led the field to the green flag for the 35 lap feature with 2nd place Shane Stewart in tow. Haudenschild fell to a few lengths behind Stewart in the early stage of the race, leaving the top two to battle for the lead. While Sweet ran low, Stewart made the most of the top groove against the cushion. He used it to his advantage on lap 8 by rocketing around the outside of Sweet to claim the lead. Haudenschilld tried to make the same move but a caution put a brief pause in his plans. On the restart, Haudenschild clicked play and launched ahead of Sweet before the first turn to claim the runner up spot. He then put Stewart in his crosshairs. The Indy Race Parts #71 was in Haudenschild's desired lane though, forcing him to try and pass Stewart on the bottom. Haudenschild could dive under Stewart into each corner and exit even with him, but the top lane allowed Stewart to edge ahead each time. Stewart's hold on the top lane ended on lap 11 when he jumped the cushion, forcing him to slow and regain control of his car. That provided an easy pass for both Haudenschild and Sweet. Over the roar of the 900 hp Sprint Cars, thousands of cheers could be heard when Haudenschild officially claimed the lead. And once he was given free reign out front, the Stenhouse Jr-Marshall Racing car entered a new dimension of speed.

Haudenschild pulled Sweet by 2.5 seconds in a handful of laps but slower traffic became a factor soon after and they didn't make his life easy, Even with those hinderances, Sweet still could not catch Haudenschild. Stewart snuck back around Sweet for second with 8 laps to go and was given one shot to upset the Ohio crowd. A caution came out with 3 laps to go, stacking the field up single file. When the race resumed, Stewart threw his car as deep as he could into turn one to try to get a run underneath Haudenschild but to no avail.

The McKenzie Concrete Super Stocks feature would see Pole sitter Don Baney grab the lead with Bob Daugherty taking the second spot. Baney would set the pace for the opening three circuits but he would pull off the trac with mechanical issues giving the point to Daugherty as Brandon Craver and Paul Holmes dueled for second with Tyler Wiles and Seth Dickerson right behind them. Holmes bean to close in on Daugherty and with three laps to, Daugherty's #21d slowed in turn two and came to a stop with front end problems ending his night. On the double file restart, Craver would steal the lead away from Holmes for the next lap but Holmes, driving the James Alleman, C.W. Tomassetti, Advance Auto Parts of Wooster and MC Welding #26 would reclaim the lead coming out of turn for with the white flag waving and hold off Craver on the last lap. For Holmes of Canton, it was his first time in a race car in over more than a year after taking time off from racing to build a new house. Wiles finished third with Dickerson and Don Rutt filling out the top five.

The next action at Wayne County Speedway will be a Demolition Derby on Saturday, October 3rd and then the Ohio Dirt Blowout will take place on Friday and Saturday, October 9th & 10th.

Sprint Car Bandits

*IT'S RACE DAY!* The 360C.I. Winged Sprint Cars of the Sprint Car Bandits series will be RIDIN' THE RAIL AT K-DALE SATURDAY SEPT. 26 at 7pm! FORECAST: SUNNY & 84° at Race Time! PLUS Cabinets By Tommy LLC $500 Dash For Cash! PLUS KENNEDALE SPEEDWAY PARK divisions will be racing - ADULTS JUST $16!

😁

Kennedale, TX (09/24/20) by DarinShort.com. The best 360C.I. powered Sprint Car teams of the region will be assembled to figuratively and literally shred the black dirt of the ¼ mile KENNEDALE SPEEDWAY PARK Saturday September 26th at 7pm, when the Sprint Car Bandits® (SCB) series presents the running of "Ridin' the Rail at K-Dale" presented by Air Performance Heating and Air Conditioning of Rockwall.

:30 KSP SCB REWIND 6/27/20: For those of you that were at this event in June, you already know what 'Ridin' the Rail at K-Dale' means, as Chad Wilson would ride the tippy-top rail around KSP in dense lapped traffic while Jeb Sessums would track him down and take the lead with two laps to go, then Wilson would take the lead back - and nearly losing coming down for the checkers by banging off the rail in a wild finish to the 25-lap championship feature event. To relive the event, click https://youtu.be/mP0L-ZVQnuA and check out the attached video-stills to see just how close it was. There was one stoppage in the feature, and that was for Colby Estes who took a hard tumble at the apex of corners 3 and 4. Interestingly enough, in the 2019 SCB event at KSP, Wilson would start 4th and track down race-long leader Jeb Sessums to take the win in the non-stop 25-lapper. We would like to thank Bo Rawdon and track crew for providing a stellar racing surface for the fans and racers.

BACK TO SEPT. 26: Track Promoter Tony Dycus comments: “The NCRA Sprint Car Bandits series brings a great group of cars to Kennedale Speedway Park, with huge crowds every time, and the quality of the racing is second to none and our fans love them, so that's why we added a second SCB date in 2020. And we’re holding the line on ticket pricing. Adults can get in to see these events for just $16 so more families can afford to take it in.”

Pit Gates open at 4pm on race day, Saturday September 26th, with racing at 7pm. Grandstands open at 5pm. Adult GA to this huge event is just $16! Kids are $5, Seniors just $10, and all pit passes are $35. KSP divisions will round out the very full night of racing, including the Season Championships for the IMCA Modifieds, SportMods, Stock Cars & Sport Compact divisions; plus the Factory Stocks and Junior Mini Stocks.

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – September 24, 2020…As the Elk Grove Ford “Hangtown 100” enters its second season we are excited to announce that the California Lightning Sprints/ BCRA Midget Lites have been added as the companion class during the three-night show on November 19th, 20th and 21st.
Keeping with the traditional aspect of the event the Lightning Sprints/ Midget Lites will run wingless at the Hangtown 100. The division will get a couple of warmups at the Placerville Speedway coming up first with wings on Saturday October 3rd.

Following that on Saturday October 10th they will then shed the tops and compete wingless during the evening for a true test-and-tune. That night will also include the USAC Western States Midgets and the USAC West Coast Wingless 360 Sprints.

“We look forward to welcoming the California Lightning Sprints and BCRA Midget Lites to the Hangtown 100 this season,” said Elk Grove Ford President Matt Wood. “With it also being one of the biggest USAC Midget events of the season we wanted to keep it in line with that and have them run without the wings, which we feel will be exciting. There’s been a solid interest from the Lightning Sprint and Midget Lite teams so it should be a great show to compliment our Midget portion.”

Teams are encouraged to register online for the Elk Grove Hangtown 100. Simply visit https://www.hangtown100.com/register-online and fill out the online registration form. For any multi-car teams competing please e-mail Matt Wood at mlwspt@aol.com so proper accommodations can be made. Please list trailer length, number of cars and if you wish to park next to anyone.

The expanded three-night event co-sanctioned with the USAC Western States Midgets will utilize a modified Trophy Cup style format, featuring larger than normal inverts.

Price Qualifies for One Feature to Highlight Disappointing Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 24, 2020) - Robbie Price fought bad luck and high car counts throughout the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial last weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway.

"We were pretty bad the week prior at I-80 and then we turned it around with a third at Randolph County Raceway so I had a little confidence heading into a big weekend," he said. "But we just didn't bring our best effort to the table and I can say pretty positively that it was a giant let down."

With a stout field of 77 drivers in attendance for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event at the 'Diamond of Dirt Tracks,' Price kicked off Thursday night's opener by finishing second in a heat race and fourth in a qualifier.

He had to run a B Main and quickly advanced forward from fourth into the lead. However, contact with a competitor following a slide job attempt sent him upside down and ended his night early.

"We had a good pill draw, but as a driver I made poor decisions on the track early in the night," he said. "I felt like we were going to get into the show, but ultimately we ended upside down and out of contention. It's easy to place blame on the wreck, but ultimately if I do a better job early in the night we're not in that position to begin with."

Price came back Friday night determined to change his luck and he started off by finishing fifth in a heat race. He followed that up by winning a qualifier from the pole position. A runner-up result in a B Main and a fifth-place showing in the Last Chance Qualifier locked Price into the back of the A Main.

"We fixed up all the damage from Thursday and we got ourselves into the show, which is all you can ask for I guess," he said after finishing 21 st. "We went a lap down early and after that there isn't much you can do in terms of passing, so we just maintained and turned our focus toward Saturday."

Price picked up two positions to finish fourth in a qualifier on Saturday to earn the outside front row starting spot in a B Main. He was running comfortably in a transfer position when he got upside for the second night of the weekend, ending his chances at contending for the $10,000 top prize.

"I was actually in a transfer spot and I thought we were one out and I was running a little harder than I should have probably," he said. "It was just an instance where we put ourselves in a bad position early in the week and I was being extra aggressive trying to get it in the show when I maybe didn't need to be."

Kyle Offill Set for Fall Haul Following Huset’s Debut

PETERSEN MEDIA: Continuing to visit a lot of race tracks for the first time as a driver is 2020, Kyle Offill was able to cut his first laps at Huset’s Speedway over the weekend and now will make a return trip to 34 Raceway for this weekend’s Fall Haul.

“Getting to Huset’s for the first time as a driver over the weekend was really cool,” Kyle Offill said. “As soon as I rolled on to the speedway, I knew it would instantly become one of my favorites.

Hitting the speedway on Friday night, Offill would get his night started off well as he timed the Country Builders/Ochoco West/Brown and Miller backed No. 88 entry in eight fastest in his qualifying group.

Moving into heat race action, Offill would do a nice job of recording a fourth-place finish in his first competitive laps on the high banked bullring, and it would result in him transferring directly into the feature event.

Lining up 16th in the feature event, the slick Huset’s Speedway surface would ultimately take rubber early in the feature event. Able to pick up a couple of positions before passing became tough, Offill would cross the stripe with a 14th place finish.

Saturday night the Tracy, CA driver checked back into the South Dakota facility for the track’s final event of 2020.

Timing in 10th fastest in his time trials flight on this night, Offill’s fifth place finish in his heat race would put him 18th on the starting grid in the feature event.

On a surface that was much racier on this night, Offill was able to make some gains early as he worked his way up to 12th before spinning out to avoid a stalled car.

Relegated to the tail end of the field, Offill continued to show a ton of speed on the foreign surface as he was able to battle his way back up to an 11th place finish.

“I am really excited to have Dillon Paddock back with us, and I think we had a really good car on Saturday,” Offill added. “I wish we could have started a little further up in the field, but I am confident in our package as we head to Burlington, IA this week.”

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 26, Wins: 1, Top 5’s: 2, Top 10’s: 6

ON TAP: Offill will be in action on Saturday night at the 34 Raceway in Burlington, IA.

Crouch Hustles From 18th to Sixth During Sprint Car Debut

Inside Line Promotions - PETTY, Texas (Sept. 24, 2020) - Brenham Crouch gained a dozen positions last Saturday when he made his debut behind the wheel of a winged sprint car.

Crouch, who had only participated in one sprint car practice session of approximately eight laps earlier this summer, made the most of his first official race in his family owned car. The team joined the Texas Sprint Series at 82 Speedway, where Crouch maneuvered from seventh to sixth place in a heat race and from eighth to third place in the B Main to advance into the main event.

"There were a bunch of good guys there," he said. "It took a few laps each session to get used to the car. I haven't had many laps in it. I was super pleased with our result."

Crouch capitalized on restarts to help him rally from 18th to sixth.

Crouch will pilot a Toyota Racing backed Keith Kunz Motorsports midget this Friday at Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, Ind., and Saturday at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind., with the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series. It will be his debut with the series.

Crouch earned his first career POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League heat race victory during his most recent start with the series on Sept. 11 at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill. He was scheduled to start eighth in the feature, but the race rained out.

QUICK RESULTS -

Tommie Estes, Jr., Steps Down from DCRP Post

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (September 24, 2020) – An era comes to an end at Dodge City Raceway Park as Tommie Estes, Jr., has elected to step down from his position as track manager and promoter at the 3/8-mile clay oval in southwest Kansas.

After a revolving door of promoters at the state-of-the-art facility in its first decade as a dirt track, Estes, Jr., assumed the role in 2011 soon after leaving his previous position as series coordinator with the American Sprint Car Series.

Estes, Jr., has guided the DCRP facility for the past ten years, establishing several notable events including the DCRP Sprint Car Nationals and creating the 1/7-mile Little DCRP clay oval to provide a training ground for younger racers to develop their skills.

After the racing facility completed its final weekend of a condensed 2020 racing season on September 19-20, Estes, Jr., announced the decision to resign from the position.

“The city of Dodge City offered to extend my contract for another three years, but I declined,” Estes, Jr., explains. “I have enjoyed my ten years at Dodge City Raceway Park and appreciate all the support from the fans, racers, staff and sponsors over the past ten years. I just felt that it was time for a change and time to explore some other opportunities.”

Estes, Jr., finished out his tenure at Dodge City Raceway Park with this past weekend’s Eighth Annual Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship event atop the 3/8-mile clay oval including the track’s championship chase divisions of Hambelton Racing DCRP Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Hobby Stocks as well as Sunday’s Little DCRP season finale for Micro Sprints and Karts.

No immediate plans have been announced for the successor to Estes, Jr., at the Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval.

Dodge City Raceway Park is located on the south edge of Dodge City, KS, on US 283, then 0.9 miles west on US 56, then 0.1 miles south. For more information, contact the track at 620-225-3277 or check www.dodgecityraceway.com.

 

 

Super Gen Products CRSA Sprints To Crown 2020 Champion In “Legendary” Fashion Saturday

Press Release by: Steven Ovens – September 23rd, 2020

(SODUS, NY) – The Super Gen Products CRSA Sprints have battled their way through a tumultuous and abbreviated 2020 tour that saw many events fall from the calendar due to New York State restrictions on motorsports facilities.

In a season where everyone in the racing community learned to “expect the unexpected,” there are more changes ahead to wrap up the 2020 CRSA Sprints Series. Series officials recently learned that the tour championship event scheduled for October at Afton Motorsports Park, part of Brett Deyo’s annual Short Track Super Nationals, would not happen and plans were made to move the event to Gary Folk’s Penn Can Speedway. Unfortunately, scheduling challenges on many fronts will not allow this event relocation to take place.

That leaves this Saturday night at Paul Cole’s Land of Legends Raceway as the 2020 tour championship event. Big plans were already in place for this thriller on the Ontario County half-mile and adding championship night will just raise the bar as CRSA joins Land of Legends’ “Stars of Tomorrow Spectacular.”

Saturday’s event will pay a cool $1,000 to the winner with added bonuses throughout the top five finishers courtesy of Mike Emhof Motorsports- owners and operators of the CRSA Sprints. The 25-lap A-Main will pay $650 for second, $400 for third, $300 for fourth and $250 for fifth. The event will pay $150 just to take Scott Hixson’s green flag.

In addition to the posted purse and staple series contingency awards, a great effort has gone in to selling lap sponsorships. These awards will circulate throughout the Top 5 in the running order during the feature.

As much as there is to look forward to in the event purse and bonuses- there is also a tight point battle that will be decided at the end of 12.5 miles to crown the 2020 CRSA Sprints champion.

Darryl Ruggles comes into the championship event with a twelve-point advantage over both 2020 Land of Legends Raceway MEM 305 Sprints track champion Alysha Bay and micro sprint graduate Trevor Years. All of which compete weekly at Land of Legends Raceway in CRSA-sanctioned 305 Sprint competition, making Saturday night a potential ‘perfect’ homecoming.

Just one marker back of the tie for second place is Dana Wagner in fourth, with a three-way tie for third between Penn Can Speedway winner Josh Flint, defending series champion Jeff Trombley and six-time CRSA feature winner Thomas Radivoy.

All heats and the 25-lap A-Main will award points on Saturday night, with heats awarding 12 points to the qualifying heat winner and reducing by one point per position down the finish order. The A-Main awards 150 points to the winner, reduces by four points to second place and then two points to third place and each position thereafter (150, 146, 144, 142…).

With so many different point scenarios in place and the combination of heat points in play- there is not any of the Top 10 in points that are mathematically out of the running to claim the 2020 CRSA Sprints championship.

As of this press release, Land of Legends Raceway intends to have race fans in attendance in their grandstands this Saturday night, giving CRSA Sprints fans two ways to catch this thrilling finish to their 2020 season. General Admission is $15 for adults, Kids 15 and under $5 with gates opening at 4:00PM. Live streaming video coverage will be available on Land of Legends TV for just $14.95 by logging on to www.landoflegendstv.com

Drivers are welcome to arrive at the track mid to late afternoon to unload and set up. The pits will be cleared to pay to get in at 3:00PM. Pit passes will be $40. Heat in motors is scheduled for 5:00PM, Hot Laps 5:05PM and Racing at 6:00PM. Free camping is available on site along the tree line in the General Admission parking area, carry in carry out policy.

2020 Super Gen Products CRSA Sprints Winners:

7/18 Land of Legends Raceway: Cory Sparks

Williamson Earns Two Top 15s During Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 23, 2020) - Garet Williamson remembers the disappointment of not qualifying for a single night of last year's Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial.

This isn't last year. Williamson is a different driver in 2020 and he has continued to find speed and improve against top-flight 360ci sprint car competition.

That showed last weekend when the Columbia, Mo., driver qualified for the feature during two of three nights in the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway. Most importantly, he made Saturday's finale and came away with a 15th-place finish while facing a stacked field that included more than 70 drivers.

"I think on the whole, as a team, we did really good," he said. "Coming from last year and not making a single night to this year and making it two nights, that's pretty good. It gives us a lot of confidence as a team."

Williamson showed speed on Night 1 of the three-day Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour show, winning a heat race and finishing sixth in a qualifier. He was going for the lead in a B Main when he suffered a fuel cell problem that ended the night early.

Williamson and the Bryant Paver Motorsports team had one of the quicker cars on Friday, advancing from fifth to third in a heat race and from fourth to second in a qualifier. He started eighth in the feature before finishing 12th.

In the finale, Williamson placed fourth in a qualifier, won a B Main and ended fourth in the Last Chance Qualifier to lock into the main event. He advanced five spots and came away with a 15th-place run in the feature.

"You need to look at it with an open mind and take the positives from it," Williamson said of his opening night problems. "We were super fast, had a good car and everything was working well. It was just one of those weird deals you can't predict.

"Sometimes things don't work out in your favor. We went into the next night knowing we had a fast car and we were good the next two nights."

Williamson gets another week off. It's a chance to take care of any problems and fine tune before the final two events on the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour schedule.

Up first is a trip to I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., on Oct. 2-3 for the prestigious Short Track Nationals.

"We have Short Track Nationals in two weeks and I'm sure it's going to be a super-stacked field," he said. "We are off this weekend, which kind of sucks, but we are going to get everything ready. Short Track is a huge event and we want to be as prepared as we can be."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 17 - Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. - Heat race: 1 (2); Qualifier: 6 (6); B Main: 19 (4).

Sept. 18 - Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. - Heat race: 3 (5); Qualifier: 2 (4); Feature: 12 (8).

Sept. 19 - Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. - Qualifier: 4 (4); B Main: 1 (3); Last Chance Qualifier: 4 (3); Feature: 15 (20).

Dover Captures Back-to-Back Podiums at Huset's Speedway During Power Series Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 23, 2020) - Jack Dover recorded a pair of podium finishes last weekend during the DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores.

Dover finished second on Friday and third on Saturday out of a field of 45-plus drivers competing in the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and the Midwest Power Series doubleheader at Huset's Speedway. That gives Dover a podium in all four races at the track this year.

"With the caliber of drivers and how many cars there we were more than pleased with how the whole weekend went," he said. "It seemed like both nights we were in the top three quickest in hot laps. We went out early both nights for time trials, which I think hurt us because the track got better."

The weekend began on Friday with Dover qualifying seventh quickest in his group. He won a heat race from the pole position to advance into the feature redraw. Dover drew the No. 5 to line up on the inside of the third row for the main event.

"I got up to third and rode around for a bit," he said. "We were able to slide Lynton Jeffrey for second. As the rubber came in it seemed like our car got better. On the last lap I diamond the corner in turns one and two and had a good run down the back straightaway. I got right beside Shane Golobic in turn three. I was a little too high on the track and got out of the rubber. He was able to get the win. If I was to do it again, it's so hard because you're going so fast and thinking about a lot all at once, but maybe I could have pulled down to try to chop into that lane. But overall it was a pretty good race."

Dover returned to the high-banked oval on Saturday, qualifying ninth quickest in his group and advancing from fifth to third place in a heat race. That gave him the ninth starting position for the A Main.

"We pushed off for the main event and I realized my car was down a cylinder," he said. "I don't know why and can't find anything wrong with it. I'm not sure if it was an MSD box or the ignition went bad. We ran that whole race on seven cylinders. I worked my way up there slowly. With about 12 laps to go we got up to fourth. There was a late restart and Justin Henderson got tight in turn two. I was able to slide him in turns three and four. He slid me really hard in turns one and two, but I turned underneath him and we ended up third. If we were running on all eight cylinders I think we might have had something for those guys up front."

Dover's third-place outing was his 18th top five of the season. He ended the Midwest Power Series season ranked third in the championship standings despite missing races.

Dover plans on returning to action this Saturday at Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, S.D., with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series. It is the season finale for the series. Dover is tied for sixth in the championship standings despite missing multiple races. He leads the series with seven wins.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 18 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 2 (5).

Hagar Produces Pair of Top Fives and Nearly Wins Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 23, 2020) - Derek Hagar overcame a tough start to the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial and he nearly ended the weekend by claiming the $10,000 top prize before running out of fuel in the closing laps on Saturday.

Hagar hustled from seventh to fourth place in a heat race on Thursday at Lucas Oil Speedway, which hosted the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event. However, he was involved in an early crash during a qualifier that resulted in a DNF, burying the team in points.

"We started out with a high pill draw, but we got three cars in our heat race," he said. "Then on the first lap of the qualifier I didn't get a good start and let a couple of cars get by me. I got one or two back going into turn three. Jonathan Cornell slid one of them and I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I got hit in the process and we ended up getting upside down. It was just a racing deal, but that put us behind in points."

Hagar rallied from 12th to second place in a B Main and he charged from sixth to win the Last Chance Showdown. Passing cars continued in the main event as Hagar maneuvered from 17th to seventh. He earned the Hard Charger Award for gaining the most positions in the A Main.

"We got up through there pretty quick before the rubber got heavy," he said. "We got up to sixth and I was trying to get underneath a driver for fifth when we made contact. I about spun out and Cornell got by us.

"I was pleased. The crash early set us up to work our butt off all night long. It was a lot of track time. We've always seemed to find our way to the front there and know how to pass cars in the feature. We had a big hole to dig ourselves out of and we were able to succeed in that."

Hagar kicked off Friday's race by placing third in a heat race and second in a qualifier. That locked him into the 14th starting position for the main event.

"We got up to fourth and were actually faster than Sam (Hafertepe Jr.), but ran out of laps to get third," he said. "I was diamonding the corner off and running where everybody else wasn't running. I wish I went to the top in turns three and four for one lap to stay with Sam. I think that would have set me up to catch him sooner. Other than that, we were able to maneuver all weekend. We could pass cars where most people were married to the bottom or the top. I could do whatever I wanted to do to pass cars."

The fourth-place run placed Hagar fifth in event points out of the 77 drivers. That locked him into the fifth starting position in Saturday's 40-lap main event.

"It went better than what I thought it was going to," he said. "I knew I was going to be tight early. They reworked the track and it had moisture on the top and bottom. I was looking at maybe losing a couple of spots early, but from the drop of the green the car worked well. I got up to fourth right away and then got by (Dylan) Westbrook for third. We had a caution and I got by Sam on a restart and got to second. About halfway through I felt I was a little better than Mark (Smith). On a later restart I felt like I could really stay with him. With about 12 or 13 laps to go I was able to slide him and take the lead. I went straight to the top after that. We had a fast car."

Hagar took the lead on Lap 28 and he led for 10 laps before fuel woes cost him the win.

"We started running out of fuel," he said. "I had to start backing my entry up to conserve fuel. I went into turn three and the car sputtered. It made the car tight in the center. I pushed up over the cushion. I was having to slow way up getting in. Sam got by me with three laps to go. It sucks. Two gallons of fuel was a $5,000 difference."

Hagar salvaged a runner-up result, which marked his 10th top five of the season.

"Not very many teams can come out from that deep of a hole to being able to lock in for Saturday's main event," he said. "That says a lot about our team. They never gave up and I never gave up. Every time we hit the track we were going forward."

Hagar was awarded a $1,300 bonus for being the overall Hard Charger during the event, passing the most cars in all races throughout the three nights combined.

Next up will be the Fall Nationals this Saturday at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark.

I think it’s also worth a :30 Second Rewind of the 2019 SCB Monarch event as well: An unforgettable night of wild in-your-face action would take place after overnight storms made for a total slurp-fest on the racing surface with elbows-up high speed drama taking place in every division all night long. The SCB feature event saw Will Eggimann (2019 SCB series champion) wrestle the lead away from John Carney II and Tim Crawley. Eggimann would lead til the 2-to-go flags were waved when a lapped car got crossed up and started flipping in front of the lead pack, resulting in Eggimann’s top wing being torn off the car. During the red, with just two laps to go, Eggimann and team decided it was not a safe idea to restart the event sans top wing leading the field…so he went pit-side and John Carney II would take home the $2,000 winners prize, with Harli White driving the wheels off her #17w sprinter coming from 21st to 2nd after a first-lap skirmish.

The SCB series has a unique rules package that allows teams to use their current equipment (especially in the engine compartment) yet curbing nightly tire expense...which helps equalize the competition with teams of varying budget sizes. The SCB “20° wing angle rule” also helps by freeing up the cars to be able to pass easier in many cases that also helps reduce excess tire and engine wear. Our ‘one rear tire all night long’ rule has not only saved racers thousands of dollars over the past four years, but to date, we’ve yet to have one tire fail (blow) due to excess tire wear in any feature race we’ve held.

All these small, yet effective changes, have been accomplished without the racers having to purchase something out of the ordinary. And we essentially haven’t changed the rules since the inception of the series at the end of 2015.

And let’s face it, since the events of 9/11/2001 – and now as of late, a lot of the economics of the sport of dirt track racing have changed drastically (especially the cost of travel, track insurance, general crowd sizes, cost of racing components), yet there really hasn’t been much being done on a nationwide level to help counteract those economic impacts. We aren’t trying to say we’ve ‘fixed’ all those impacts, but at least we are doing something to help curb racer expenses – and it’s working.

Our rules package certainly has made for exciting and unpredictable racing outcomes – as there have been 23 different feature winners in the past 37 series events!

If your business is interested in getting involved with the SCB series, please email SprintCarBandits@Outlook.com for more information. There are effective programs available for all sizes of budgets.

We look forward to seeing you Saturday, October 10th when the Sprint Car Bandits 360C.I. “FALLS TOWN SPRINT SHOWDOWN” invades Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls with high-powered winged Sprint Cars battling on the racy 1/4 mile speed plant, paired three more exciting racing divisions!

Final 2020 double this weekend at Lincoln and Selinsgrove

The PA Sprint Series will run its final two-race weekend of the season this Friday and Saturday, with radically different programs at Lincoln and Selinsgrove Speedways.

This also is the final weekend for 2020 points.

On Friday night, the IMCA/RaceSaver Sprints will be part of a program featuring the U.S. Legends Dirt Nationals, a three-night program at Lincoln. Friday’s racing will include qualifying heats for four different classes of Legend cars, plus the U.S. Legends Race of Champions 30-lapper.

PASS, meanwhile, will have a regular show of heats, a B-Main and a 20-lap feature. Early registration has indicated a likely field of well over 30 RaceSaver sprint teams.

Pit gates for the sprinters will open at 5:30 p.m., with hot laps at 6:30 and racing at 7:30.

General admission for the evening is $10 for adults; pit passes are $30.

On Saturday, PASS joins the 410 sprints as they run the Jim Nace Memorial/410 Sprint Car National Open, the richest non-sanctioned sprint car payout in the East. The RaceSavers also will have an extra boost, thanks to division sponsor Apache Tree Service, which has put up $200 for the Hard Charger Award.

Gates will open at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, with racing getting underway at 7:00. Adult General Admission is $30, $15 for youth 12-17. Reserved seats cost an additional $2. Pit gate admission is $40.

In the points race, Garrett Bard has a commanding lead over Doug Dodson, Landon Price, John Walp and Larry McVay, but Bard also leads the national IMCA/RaceSaver standings by a narrower margin, so this weekend means a great deal in determining whether a PASS driver will be national champion for the second straight year – Ken Duke Jr. took the national title in 2019.

PASS takes a weekend off after these races but returns on Saturday, October 10, at Port Royal Speedway with the World of Outlaws. Only the top 26 in Port Royal PASS points will run.

Hafertepe Makes It Eight Wins In 2020 With Hockett/McMillin Triumph
Bryan Hulbert - WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 23, 2020) Landing his third career Hockett/McMillin Memorial triumph this past weekend with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. brought his overall win total to eight on the season.
Locking into the 40-lap, $10,000 to win event through his Thursday and Friday performances, Hafertepe ran inside the top three the entirety of the race. Challenging Mark Smith on Lap 14, just as a red flag was called for, Hafertepe did not get another look at the lead until the final three laps.
"I honestly didn't feel like there was anything we could do to win the race," stated Hafertepe.
"They [Mark Smith and Derek Hagar] were both quite a bit better than us early on, and the only reason I got by them at all the beginning was when they missed their line, and even late, the middle wasn't working at all for me, so I had to be on the top. About the only way I figured we were going to beat them at that point was if they started racing each other, and when they didn't, we just kept on the cushion."
Under caution with eight laps to go, the restart saw Sam raced around Smith for second on Lap 36. Making up time on Hagar over the next two laps, the No. 9jr slipped over the cushion as Hafertepe setup the slide on Lap 38.
From there, Sam was able to pull to a 1.001-second advantage.
On the final restart, Sam explained, "It looked like they both pulled off the top a little bit in one a two mainly. I never did, and we started really gaining on them. It was just a couple laps, and we got to Mark, then we were right on Hagar, sliding him. I just know we were buried in the curb, and the run was long enough that I was able to get in a good rhythm where it worked out."
Looking at Sam's next outing, the team will be off this weekend in preparation for the COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires. The $10,041 to win affair takes place at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. on Friday, October 2, and Saturday, October 3.

2020 IMCA National Awards banquet canceled

LINCOLN, Neb. – In light of restrictions now in place and uncertainty regarding future Covid-19 guidelines, IMCA officials have announced the difficult decision to cancel the national awards banquet to have been held Nov. 28 in Lincoln, Neb.

“This decision needs to be made today and currently, we would be limited to 50 percent capacity, or approximately 300 people, to hold our banquet at the Marriott Cornhusker,” explained IMCA President Brett Root. “The IMCA national banquet draws an annual attendance of nearly 600 IMCA members, families and friends. Limiting the attendance would force IMCA to choose which champions should attend and we are not going to be placed in that situation. Table seating also becomes quite problematic regarding the permitted group size restrictions. Based on the group settings, it’s challenging to seat people with people they do not know. We don’t want to place anyone in a situation they are personally uncomfortable with.”

“We can’t predict the future. We have no way of knowing what restrictions will be in place in two months and will not tell anyone who wants to that they cannot attend our banquet,” he continued. “Additionally, the Smith Collection Museum of American Speed on the Speedway Motors campus has been closed since the onset of this pandemic. That places the Friday night champions’ reception in question as well.”

All awards, jackets, point fund checks and contingencies presented at the national banquet will be shipped beginning in mid-November.

“All drivers will receive the awards they earned this season. The IMCA awards, contingencies, and point funds remain intact 100 percent. We’d like nothing better than to present them at the banquet with friends and family in attendance but that is simply out of our control,” Root said. “We will announce national, regional, state, track and series champions and rookies of the year as soon as point standings are finalized and all congratulatory letters will be mailed after points become official.”

IMCA has held its national banquet in Lincoln since 2007. The 2021 banquet will be held at the Marriott Cornhusker on Nov. 27.

“We could not ask for a better location to hold this event,” noted Root, “and look forward to our return there next year. We will do our best to honor the IMCA National Champions as best we can and perhaps in a more personal way, just not in a large indoor group setting.”

Reutzel Back in All Star Victory Lane – Takes on All Stars & Outlaws this Week

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (September 22, 2020) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team bolstered their All Star Circuit of Champions points lead over the weekend with his 14th overall win of the 2020 season.

It was a three-race week which included a fourth-place finish in last Wednesday night’s Weldon Sterner Memorial at Lincoln Speedway. A pair of All Star events followed with a Friday night triumph at Williams Grove Speedway and then a runner-up finish in Saturday night’s “Dirt Classic” at Lincoln Speedway.

It sets the stage for a full week of racing with the All Star Circuit of Champions and World of Outlaws.

The All Stars are back in action with Eldora Speedway’s “Governor’s Reign” in Rossburg, OH, on Tuesday and Wednesday. Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car team then shift into World of Outlaws action at Indiana’s Plymouth Speedway on Thursday night and then western Pennsylvania’s Lernerville Speedway on Saturday night.

Reutzel kicked off last week’s set of events by topping the speed charts in qualifying on Wednesday night at Lincoln aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment entry and then finishing out the night fourth in the feature after starting fifth.

Back into points action for Friday’s Jack Gunn Memorial at Williams Grove Speedway, Reutzel won his heat race to earn a Dash starting position aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspension entry and then led the final 17 laps of the feature event for his 14th win of the season.

“We got a little lucky at Williams Grove, we didn’t qualify very good but that put us on the front row of our heat and we were able to win that to get in a Dash,“ Reutzel explains. “We had a really, really good car for the feature, I could run it anywhere on the track that I needed to.”

Back to Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night for the $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic, Reutzel topped his qualifying group in the Fischer Body Shop machine. He then posted a runner-up finish in his first heat and then sixth in his second heat in the twin-heat event.

“Lincoln started out good, we ran second to Kyle (Larson) in the first heat, but on the second heat we missed it with the car,” Reutzel recalls. “If we would have been one position better in that second heat, that would have put us on the front row of the feature.”

Instead, Reutzel gridded the feature inside the third row. Reutzel worked his way forward to post a runner-up finish for the night.

“I got up to third when it rubbered up, then I was able to get second on a restart when the guy that was there slipped out of the rubber,” Reutzel wraps up.

Three tracks await Reutzel and crew this week and he has put the BRM No. 87 in victory lane in his last visit to each of the tracks.

The “Governor’s Reign” at Eldora Speedway is Reutzel’s first visit to the Ohio facility since putting the finishing touches on his second All Star Circuit of Champions title last September.

After the All Star double at Eldora, Reutzel takes on the World of Outlaws at a pair of tracks at which he has been unbeaten in All Star Circuit of Champions action over the past three seasons. Reutzel has been victorious in each of the past three years at Indiana’s Plymouth Speedway and topped 2018 and 2019 events at Lernerville Speedway.

2020 Quick Stats: 72 races, 14 wins, 36 top-fives, 49 top-tens.

Next Up:

Tuesday and Wednesday – All Star Circuit of Champions at Eldora Speedway’s (Rossburg, OH) “Governor’s Reign”

Thursday – World of Outlaws at Plymouth (IN) Speedway

Saturday – World of Outlaws at Lernerville Speedway (Sarver, PA)

Big Week for Bacon Begins on Tuesday

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (September 22, 2020) – In the midst of a torrid battle for a third career USAC Sprint Car championship, Brady Bacon is set for a busy week of racing action at three tracks in three different cars.

It begins with Bacon in winged 410-ci action on Tuesday and Wednesday after being voted into Eldora Speedways’ “Governor’s Reign” by the fans. Piloting the Fatheadz Eyewear No. 69, Bacon will vie for Tuesday’s $10,000 winner’s share and then Wednesday’s $52,000 payday at the invitational event.

Then, after an idle night, “The Macho Man” is in for double-duty with the USAC National Sprint Cars and USAC National Midgets at Gas City I-69 Speedway on Friday night and then Kokomo Speedway on Saturday night.

Bacon will pilot the Hoffman Racing Fatheadz Eyewear No. 69 entry in the Sprint Car portion and the Hayward Motorsports Oilfire No. 19 in the Midget portion. While the Hoffman entry is Bacon’s standard USAC Sprint Car ride, Bacon gained the seat of the No. 19 Midget for the remainder of the season.

Bacon goes into the week off a USAC Sprint Car weekend that netted finishes of fifth at the Terre Haute Action Track on Friday and then eighth at Haubstadt’s Tri-State Speedway on Saturday night.

After timing in second-quickest at Terre Haute, Bacon gridded the feature event fifth and held the position throughout the 30-lapper.

Wilson Returning to a Favorite Track This Week During All Star Event at Eldora Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (Sept. 22, 2020) - Greg Wilson is heading to a home track this week when Eldora Speedway hosts the Governors Reign with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1.

Wilson has guided his Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics, DNC Hydraulics and Gear Off Road backed team to three All Star wins, a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series triumph and nine 360ci winged sprint car victories in his career at the high-banked oval near Rossburg, Ohio.

Wilson posted a pair of top 10s at Eldora Speedway last year, including a sixth-place outing during his most recent visit a year ago in September.

"Growing up in Ohio and going there and watching as a kid, I'm thankful to be able to race at Eldora," he said. "I still get butterflies and get wound up every time I go to there. I think that in turn has helped me focus when I go there. And we've been fortunate to have some luck and some success, which helps with your confidence when you head to a track."

Wilson highlighted a four-race trip to Central Pennsylvania last weekend with an 11th-place result last Thursday at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven.

"We tried a bunch of stuff every night to help motor-wise and car-wise," he said. "In the races I've run in Central Pennsylvania over time we've never been all that great. With that being said I think the Pennsylvania tracks helped magnify certain issues you maybe don't see in other parts of the country. After having three or four different guys help the last few weeks and doing a lot of different things to the car, which is some of the stuff I wouldn't have done, we're the same speed no matter what.

"I know my normal base deal for the setup should be close at Eldora. We'll have our best engine in the car. We should know after two nights if we're okay or what we need to work on."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 16 - Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. - Qualifying: 13; Heat race: 7 (7); B Main: 9 (5).

Brian Brown Focused on Flipping Luck During Marquee Events This Week

Inside Line Promotions - ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (Sept. 22, 2020) - Brian Brown has four big nights of racing on tap this week following a frustrating weekend in Central Pennsylvania.

"I've been frustrated for the last few weeks, but frustration won't help erase some of the bad luck we've had," he said. "We have the car speed. Once our luck turns around we'll be in a good position."

Brown will tackle Eldora Speedway's Governors Reign, which pays $52,000 to win the finale, on Tuesday and Wednesday before participating in a World of Outlaws tune-up race at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday and the 38 th annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday.

Sept. 16 - Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. - Qualifying: 6; Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 24 (7).

"We were pretty good," Brown said. "We qualified decent and won our heat race. We lined up seventh for the main event, but we had ignition trouble from the get-go."

Sept. 18 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 1 (1); Feature: 22 (1).

"We qualified well and won both our heat race and a dash," Brown said. "We were running third on the last lap and blew a right rear tire. We've had car speed, but just no luck."

Sept. 19 - Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. - Qualifying: 12; Heat race #1: 4 (3); Heat race: #2: 5 (6); Feature: 19 (20).

"We ran around where we started all night," Brown said. "I feel like we have the car speed. It's hard not to get down, but to me there's lots of bright points. You can't control your luck. You can make your own luck, but you can't control a lot of things that happen. Stuff that has happened are freak deals that don't happen normally. On the other hand I'm excited as an owner and a driver that we do have speed. If we can just get rid of that bad luck we have a car capable of having good runs."

UP NEXT - Tuesday and Wednesday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, for the Governors Reign with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 and Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., and Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa., for the 38th annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open

"First, I'm honored to be asked to show up to this race at Eldora," Brown said. "It's an invitational so it's not like anyone can show up like how it normally is at race tracks. There's a lot of great teams that are invited and a lot of great teams that weren't so we're just happy to be invited. I'm also happy that Eldora and their staff put on such a big event when they didn't have to. Eldora is a place we've had some success at in the past. We've been off a bit in 2020, but the last couple of weeks we've gained on it. We're also looking forward to having two good nights in Pennsylvania this weekend."

Sams III Improves During Second Time at Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 22, 2020) - Danny Sams III had a fast race car throughout the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial, improving on his results during his second time of tackling the marquee Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event.

The Sams LaMountain Racing driver was one of more than 75 drivers who began the action at Lucas Oil Speedway on Thursday. Sams III charged from sixth to second place in a heat race. He picked up a position in a qualifier to finish fifth. That locked him into the main event in the 15th starting spot.

"The first night I made some good moves to go sixth to second in the heat race and I passed one car in the qualifier," he said. "In the feature the track got rubber down and we didn't expect that. We missed the setup and were too tight by a mile."

Sams III salvaged a 19th-place finish.

He returned to the oval on Friday. A fourth-place result in a heat race was followed by a third-place outing in a qualifier, a fifth-place run in a B Main and a 12th-place finish in the Last Chance Showdown.

"I had a good start in my heat and was up to second, but it got called back," he said. "The other drivers around me saw what I did and took that lane on the second start. In the qualifier the car was a little off and in the B Main everybody was pretty equal. It came down to the Last Chance Qualifier and it was the same thing. We were quick, but not quick enough."

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday with Sams III ending fourth in a qualifier, which put him on the outside of the front row in a B Main.

"Going into turn three as we were coming to the green flag the guy on the pole gassed it up and ran over my left front, which knocked my nose wing down," he said. "I was holding on once we started. I was able to maintain second for a few laps, but once a couple of drivers got by me it was game over. If I would have finished where I started I would have been starting in the top six in the Last Chance Qualifier. I think we would have had a good shot at making the main event if that happened, but it didn't work out."

The handling on the race car got even worse once Sams III was in dirty air as he faded to an eighth-place finish.

The team will take this weekend off before returning to action Oct. 2-3 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., for the Short Track Nationals with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

Mallett Enjoys Successful Weekend During Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 22, 2020) - Jordon Mallett scored a pair of top-five finishes as well as a seventh-place result during the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial hosted by Lucas Oil Speedway last weekend.

"The goal was to not have to run a B Main all weekend and if we did our job we'd get locked into Saturday's show," he said. "With around 80 cars there all week I think our average finish was around four so I'm definitely pleased and it was a great points weekend, too."

Mallett kicked off the three-race Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour weekend at the 'Diamond of Dirt Tracks' on Thursday by advancing four positions in a heat race to finish fifth. He then won a qualifier from third to lock himself into the feature in the eighth starting spot.

Hugging the bottom of the track, Mallett advanced to the fifth position on the opening lap of the feature. He then capitalized in traffic to work his way forward to the runner-up position on Lap 16.

Over the final nine circuits he erased more than a two-second deficit and pulled under the leader entering turn one on the final lap. The two made slight contact exiting turn two and Mallett had to get out of throttle to avoid a wreck before settling for second. The finish was a career best for Mallett with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

"Second place is always a good run, but it's about the worst place to finish as you know you just missed a win," he said. "I could've pushed the envelope a bit, but with two more nights of racing I didn't want to junk two good race cars knowing what was at stake all weekend."

Mallett duplicated Thursday night's performance on Friday when he advanced four positions to end fifth in a heat race and won a qualifier from the third starting spot. He lined up for the feature on the outside of the second row and he finished fifth on a tricky track that proved tough to pass on.

The top-five run was the Greenbrier, Ark., native's 12th of the season. More importantly, after two nights of racing Mallett sat third in points to lock himself straight into the Saturday night finale - worth $10,000 to win.

"This weekend we proved that if the race track is good, you can overcome pill draw with determination and hard work," he said. "We pretty much duplicated Thursday night and that's exactly what we were looking for in terms of consistency and success. To know leaving Friday night we were already locked in and didn't have to worry about racing our way in was a big relief and it allowed us to just focus on racing for a win."

Mallett, who started the finale third, jumped to second on the initial start, but it got called back. He was not as fortunate on the second attempt and fell to fourth. Mallett stayed in the top five for most of the race before slipping to seventh in traffic. He ended in that position to post his 15th top 10 of the season.

"We pretty much ran anywhere from third to eighth all feature long and I wish we had that first start back," he said. "The track was challenging and a lot of guys were not as lucky as us to escape with a top-10 finish so we're leaving with our heads held high and pleased."

Mallett will take the week off before returning to action Oct. 2-3 for the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. He enters the weekend sitting fifth in the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour standings and only trails second by 99 points.

"I'm trying really hard to put the points deal in the back of my mind and to just focus on running well and contending for wins," he said. "Honestly, I'm more focused on the future than anything and getting my program right to where we can contend every night and feel comfortable each time out. If we run like I feel we're capable of the points deal will take care of itself."

SawBlade.com's Bogucki Posts Pair of Top 10s During Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 22, 2020) - Scott Bogucki produced a podium finish and a pair of top 10s last weekend during the 10 th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway.

The SawBlade.com sponsored competitor faced off against 75-plus drivers during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour tripleheader, which began last Thursday. Bogucki charged from ninth to win a heat race and from sixth to third place in a qualifier to garner the most points. That gave him the pole position for the A Main.

"The first night I wasn't tight enough in the feature," he said after finishing third. "I thought the track had taken rubber before we got out there. I was too free until the rubber came in."

Friday's second preliminary night featured another efficient run as Bogucki hustled from fourth to second place in a heat race and from fifth to third place in a qualifier. He capped the night with an eighth-place finish in the main event.

"We were okay, a little on the free side," he said. "I lost some spots and got some back. It was an average night."

Bogucki ranked fourth in preliminary points to lock himself into the fourth starting position in Saturday's A Main. He maintained a top five throughout the race and was running fourth on the final lap when he got into the cushion wrong in turns three and four. That upset his race car and he jumped the cushion, culminating in a flip. Bogucki was credited with a 16 th-place result.

"I ran out of fuel as I ran into turn three," he said. "You had to hit the cushion with the wheels spinning. The engine sputtered and the car got on the right front, over the cushion and turned over. That was really disappointing.

"After last year's run with me going to the hospital, I was like, 'Cool, I finally beat this place.' Then I turned over in the same spot. That's racing. Thankfully we didn't really tear the car up."

Bogucki plans on competing this Saturday at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, during the Fall Haul with the Sprint Invaders.

Sept. 17 - Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. - Heat race: 1 (9); Qualifier: 3 (6); Feature: 3 (1).

Crockett Earns Two Top 10s During Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 22, 2020) - Roger Crockett highlighted the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial with a pair of top-10 runs last weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Crockett kicked off the three-race Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour weekend that featured more than 75 drivers on Thursday by charging from eighth to fourth place in a heat race and from fourth to second place in a qualifier. He capped the night with an eighth-place finish in the main event.

"I'm disappointed we didn't have our car better," he said. "The first night we unloaded really good. In the heat race we were really good. In the qualifier we were a tiny bit off, but still got a couple of spots. In the A Main we weren't real good the first few laps until it laid rubber. But then there's nowhere to pass."

Crockett drew a high number to line up eighth in a heat race on Friday, but track conditions made passing a premium.

"The track was so wet you couldn't pass," he said. "Our car was fine, but you just couldn't pass. We finished seventh. In the qualifier we were able to move forward from eighth to fourth and get ourselves in a decent spot in the B Main. We missed on the car setup, but were able to go fifth to third. Then we missed on the car in the LCQ and were too free. We were good the first few laps and then we were just hanging on. The draw just hurt us so bad that night, as it did many people."

A runner-up result in a qualifier on Saturday locked Crockett into the $10,000-to-win main event.

"We got in the show, but our car was really bad," he said. "We don't really know what made it so bad. We were way too tight. I couldn't even drive the car the first 25 laps. It got a little better at the end and we were able to move forward some. I think we ran 20th most of the race. It was a struggle until the track dried off."

Crockett's late rebound netted a 10th-place finish, which marked his 14th top 10 this season and 11th with the ASCS National Tour - tied for the most.

"Ultimately, running 10th was not a horrible outing, especially with 75-plus drivers competing," he said. "We go there to try to win and we weren't a threat to win. That place is really tricky. I think we have something to learn there. There's something I'm missing and we're just not getting the car right."

Crockett will be dormant this weekend before resuming ASCS National Tour competition on Oct. 2-3 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., for the Short Track Nationals.

Old School Racing's Tankersley Delivers Career-Best World of Outlaws Run at Devil's Bowl Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Sept. 22, 2020) - Channin Tankersley captured his career-best result with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series last Saturday during the Texas Outlaw Nationals at Devil's Bowl Speedway.

It was quite a rebound following a frustrating Friday night for the Old School Racing driver. The team hauled to Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla., but was unable to race because of mechanical woes.

"I was pretty disappointed with Friday," Tankersley said. "Going in there, that's a pretty good track for us and I was really looking forward to seeing how we compared to those guys on a smaller bullring. We had some mechanical problems so we had to sit the night out. Thankfully we got it fixed for Saturday."

Tankersley qualified 17th quickest on Saturday at Devil's Bowl Speedway. He then advanced from sixth to fifth place in a heat race to lock into the 14th starting position for the main event.

"We started off the night a little hesitant, hoping the problem was resolved," he said. "It ran good so then we could focus on trying to get the car right. As the night went on I felt like we got better. I made a few driving errors on my end that cost us potentially a top 10. For the most part it was a pretty solid night for us."

Tankersley's 12th-place outing bested his previous top Outlaw result of 17th.

"It's kind of reassuring," he said. "With me not running as much we're already behind the eight ball. Whenever you can go out and decently run with those guys it fills that void of questioning do we have our stuff well enough to compete with these guys. It's definitely a confidence boost."

Carney II Produces First Two Top 10s of Career With World of Outlaws

Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Sept. 22, 2020) - John Carney II earned his first two top-10 finishes during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition last weekend.

The SawBlade.com Xiphos saw blade and CSR Garage sponsored driver guided Scott Brown's sprint car to a 10th-place run on Friday at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla. - his first career top 10 with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt' - before posting a career-best eighth-place finish on Saturday during the Texas Outlaw Nationals at Devil's Bowl Speedway.

"It was really a great weekend," Carney II said. "Those guys are the best sprint car drivers in the world. Any time you make a mistake you really expose yourself to losing spots. You have to be perfect with those guys all night to run in the top five or win."

Carney II qualified sixth quickest on Friday to open the program at Lawton Speedway.

"We timed in great, but we dropped the ball in the heat race a little bit," he said. "We rolled out with a tire on the left rear that wasn't the right deal. That was probably why we lost one spot and the other spot was because of my driving error."

Carney II placed fourth to lock into the 12th starting position for the main event.

"We raced our way up to seventh," he said. "The car was a little too tight and I was overusing the brakes. With seven or eight laps to go the brakes faded and I lost three spots."

The 10th-place result gave the team even more confidence heading into Saturday's event at Devil's Bowl Speedway. Carney II timed in 13 th quickest in qualifying and ended fifth in a heat race to line up 13th in the main event.

"We got a little behind in qualifying and that was not ideal," he said. "That started us in the middle of the pack in the feature. That place is so weird about air and your car acting unusual. To be able to pass any cars is a positive. The first half of that race there wasn't much passing. When the track started getting more technical and slicked up I started moving around. I was really able to make up ground on the restarts. The laps I have at Devil's Bowl helped me."

Carney II used a late charge to secure the eighth-place finish. He was tied for the most positions gained in the A Main.

"The main thing is we ran right outside the top 10 at Dodge City two weekends ago," he said. "Last weekend we ran just inside the top 10. We've learned things each time we hit the track. We put together more consistent laps and the car was drivable. The engine is great. I'm catching up to speed. It's not just one thing that has to go right. There's 50 things that have to go right and they're starting to gel right now."

Carney II plans on taking this weekend off before racing with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour on Oct. 2-3 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., during the Short Track Nationals.

Daniel Captures Career-Best World of Outlaws Result at Lawton Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Sept. 22, 2020) - Mason Daniel earned his career-best World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series result last Friday during his debut at Lawton Speedway.

Daniel's 11th-place outing was followed by a 15th -place run on Saturday at Devil's Bowl Speedway during the Texas Outlaw Nationals. It marked his career-best result at that track and was also the first weekend of the season to feature back-to-back top 15s for Daniel.

"We had misfortune the previous two weekends getting in wrecks so it was great that we had a strong showing in both main events last weekend," he said. "It means we're going in the right direction. We can put brand new cars together and there's no changes between our cars so that gives me a lot of confidence. All the parts are the same between our cars, but not all cars handle the same. My guys are working hard and doing a great job."

Daniel opened the weekend by qualifying 14th quickest at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla., on Friday. He then finished fifth in a heat race to lock into the 14th starting position for the main event.

"Lawton is a tricky track," he said. "There were some holes in the middle of the corner that biked everybody. I found a way to get above it and not bike the car and then stay smooth around the bottom and the middle of the track."

Daniel's 11th-place run bested his previous top World of Outlaws result of 13th.

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Devil's Bowl Speedway, where Daniel qualified 18th quickest. A sixth-place result in a heat race started him 18th in the A Main.

"It was okay up until we got lapped," he said. "It's tough when you start so far back because even if you're moving forward the leader is still catching you. If we didn't get lapped we would have had a stronger finish. On that last caution three cars got put ahead of us because they were on the lead lap. We passed two more before the end of the race, but they didn't count. Both nights we were better later in the race, especially at Devil's Bowl."

Daniel was credited with a 15th-place finish, which marked his sixth top 15 of the season.

The team returns to World of Outlaws competition this weekend with a trio of shows running Thursday at Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Ind.; Friday at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio; and Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., for the Commonwealth Clash.

It will be Daniel's first official race at Plymouth Speedway and Wayne County Speedway after earlier events this season were rained out. Daniel made his debut at Lernerville Speedway in July.

Sides Records Second-Best World of Outlaws Result of Season at Devil's Bowl Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Sept. 22, 2020) - Jason Sides posted his second-best result of the season with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series last Saturday at Devil's Bowl Speedway, which hosted the Texas Outlaw Nationals.

Sides qualified fourth quickest and placed second in a heat race to lock into the dash. He advanced one position to place fourth in the dash and garner the starting spot on the outside of the second row for the A Main.

"It started out good," he said. "We drew last for qualifying, but it didn't hurt us because the track was really good all night. We qualified fourth and that put us on the front row of a heat race. We finished second to David Gravel and then we gained a spot in the dash. We were pretty good."

Sides ran inside the top five for most of the feature before a late restart cost him a handful of positions. He salvaged a ninth-place result, which was his fourth top 10 of the season.

"We were optimistic about the feature," he said. "It started out good, but on one of the restarts we were on the outside and running behind everybody in the dirty air the car took off and we lost a couple of spots. I think the only one that passed me when we were racing was (Brad) Sweet. We were running the top in turns three and four and he passed us on the bottom. We got down there and we were pretty good after that."

It was a strong result to cap a weekend that began on Friday at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla. Sides timed in eighth quickest in qualifying and he finished fourth in a heat race to start the main event 11th.

"We were a little bit tight early and then got good," he said. "I kept using the brakes and they got to where they weren't stopping so I couldn't run as hard as I wanted to. We lost a few spots there at the end."

Sides battled for a top 10 throughout the majority of the race before dropping a couple of positions late and ending 13th.

Next up for the team will be a trio of World of Outlaws races this Thursday at Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Ind.; Friday at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio; and Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., for the Commonwealth Clash.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 18 - Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla. - Qualifying: 8; Heat race: 4 (3); Feature: 13 (11).

Paul Nienhiser Makes Late Race Move To Win at Jacksonville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Friday night at Jacksonville Speedway, Paul Nienhiser made a late race move to overtake Thomas Meseraul and score his fourth win of the season before backing it up with a second-place finish against the Sprint Invaders on Saturday night.

“I knew we had a good car on Friday night, and I was just trying to bide my time,” Paul Nienhiser said. “TMEZ is a good friend, so if I was going to lose it, it would have been alright to lose it to him, but luckily we had a shot thanks to a late caution.”

Friday night at Jacksonville Speedway, Nienhiser would line the CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil/Mason Sound/Innovative Design backed No. 9x machine up in the second row of his heat race. Making a couple of swift moves, the Chapin, IL driver would work into the second spot, where he would finish, and find himself fourth in points.

The feature event would line up directly based on points putting Nienhiser in the second row.

Jumping into second from the onset of the feature, Nienhiser would try to keep pace with TMEZ who was very strong out front. Continuing to run in second, Nienhiser would hope to make his move in traffic, but Meseraul would have better luck in traffic than he would, and it would keep Nienhiser in second.

A couple of late restarts would see Nienhiser make a couple of bids for the lead, but TMEZ was able to fend him off until a restart with just two laps left in the race.

The race’s final restart saw Nienhiser keep pace with Meseraul and a big move would pay off of Nienhiser jumped into the lead and took off leading the final lap and a half to pick up his fourth win of the season.

Saturday night, Nienhiser climbed aboard Scott Bonar’s No. 50 machine as the team checked in at Lee County Speedway for action with the NRA Sprint Invaders.

Having a tough heat race draw, Nienhiser would line up seventh in his heat race. With a very strong Midland Performance machine underneath him, Nienhiser was able to carve his way through the field and net a second-place finish.

Qualifying for the Dash, Nienhiser would take full advantage of the front row starting position as he would pick up the win by over a straightway and draw the inversion pill for the feature.

As luck would have it, Nienhiser would draw the six, putting him sixth on the starting grid for the feature event.

Still with a strong car underneath him, Nienhiser quickly worked his way into third, and then made numerous passes on Chris Martin for second, only to see caution flags negate his efforts.

Once in second for good, Nienhiser had his work cut out for himself as the race leader has build up a sizeable lead. Able to cut into the deficit in traffic, Nienhiser would run out of time, though still capped a strong weekend off with a second-place finish.

“All in all, it was a really good weekend in both cars,” Nienhiser said. “Scott and I have really come accustomed to second place finishes, but I would love nothing more than to get a win for him this weekend at the ‘Fall Haul’.”

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

2020 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-30, Wins-4, Top 5’s-10, Top 10’s-16

ON TAP: Nienhiser will return to the seat of Scott Bonar’s No. 50 car at 34 Raceway this weekend for the ‘Fall Haul’.

:30 KSP SCB REWIND 6/27/20: For those of you that were at this event in June, you already know what 'Ridin' the Rail at K-Dale' means, as Chad Wilson would ride the tippy-top rail around KSP in dense lapped traffic while Jeb Sessums would track him down and take the lead with two laps to go, then Wilson would take the lead back - and nearly losing coming down for the checkers by banging off the rail in a wild finish to the 25-lap championship feature event. To relive the event, click https://youtu.be/mP0L-ZVQnuA and check out the attached video-stills to see just how close it was. There was one stoppage in the feature, and that was for Colby Estes who took a hard tumble at the apex of corners 3 and 4.

Blake Carrick 2nd at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to Placerville Speedway for the first time since winning the Forni Classic back on July 25th, Blake Carrick had another strong run on the high banked quarter mile as he finished second on Saturday night.

“Saturday night I fell back early in the feature, and once I got going time ran out,” Blake Carrick said. “Second to your brother kind of leaves a funky taste in your mouth for sure.”

With 29 cars checked in at the track on Saturday, Carrick timed the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 38B machine in fifth quickest in time trials before pocketing a fourth place finish in his heat race.

Earning a berth in the redraw thanks in part to brother, Tanner, winning his heat race, the three pill placed Carrick in the second row of the 25-lap feature event.

With the race getting off to a slow starts due to a couple of stoppages, Carrick would fall back in the early goings as he found himself back in the fifth position.

As the race finally got into a rhythm, Carrick was finally able to settle into his own groove as he moved into second on the eighth lap. With his brother setting a very strong pace out front, Carrick would do a great job of keeping pace as he got through traffic methodically.

Getting stronger in the later stages of the race, Carrick would close in on his brother, but on this night he would end the race with a second place finish.

Also in action on Friday night at Ocean Speedway, Carrick would open his night up by timing in ninth quickest in qualifying time trials.

Finding himself on the front row of his heat race, the Lincoln, CA driver would pick up the win before earning a seventh place finish in the Dash.

On a very hooked up Ocean Speedway surface, passing would prove to be tough as Carrick held down the seventh position for the duration of the race. When the Ed Entz checkered flag was displayed to the field, Carrick would finish in the seventh spot.

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 returns to action on Friday night at Ocean Speedway and on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-32, Wins-3, Top 5’s-14, Top 10’s-21

Kalib Henry Overcomes Adversity at Placerville Speedway to Tally 12th Place Finish

PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to Placerville Speedway for the first time since late July, Kalib Henry and McColloch Motorsports would overcome some early adversity in the feature event to finish 12th when the 25-lap feature concluded.

“We got off to a bit of a slow start on Saturday night, but we were able to make a couple of changes and really get going,” Kalib Henry said. “In the feature we got ran over on the first lap, went to the tail twice, and still fought back to finish 12th.”

With 29 cars on hand at Placerville Speedway, Henry timed the McColloch’s RV Repair/Express Sewer & Drain/Davis Truck Painting backed No. 17 entry in 12th fastest in time trials.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, the Mather, CA driver was able to take care of business and pick up the win on the ultra-fast surface that greeted the field early in the night.

Earning a berth in the redraw, the seven pill would place Henry in the fourth row of the 25-lap feature event.

As the race went green, contact from another competitor would leave Henry with a flat right rear tire, and when the red flag waived for a flipping car, he was able to get to the work area to make repairs.

After tagging the field, Henry would come to a stop a few laps later and would again go to the tail end of the field.

With the race struggling to settle into an early pace, Henry was able to use the early restarts to begin making up lost ground. Working his way back towards the Top-10, Henry would overcome that slow start to finish 12th when the race concluded.

“It was tough to come from the back, but we were patient and picked up spots as they came to us,” Henry said. “It wasn’t the night we were hoping for, but we are confident in our piece as he we had to Hanford, CA this weekend.”

McColloch Motorsports would like to thank McColloch’s RV Repair, Express Sewer and Drain, Davis Truck Painting, ART Speed Equipment, RE Technologies, Hansen Machine, and Gary Morgan Graphics for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 7, Wins: 1, Top-5’s: 1, Top-10’s- 1

ON TAP: McColloch Motorsports will be back in action with Kalib Henry on Saturday night in Hanford, CA.

 

 

Justyn Cox and C&M Motorsports Battle ASCS National Tour in Wheatland, MO

PETERSEN MEDIA- With California schedules limited in the Fall, Justyn Cox and C&M Motorsports made the decision to travel to Wheatland, MO and take part in the Jesse Hockett Memorial over the weekend.

“We learned a ton at a new place,” Justyn Cox said. “We had some small issues during the three nights of action, but this team really worked their tails off and I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to travel back to Missouri.”

Kicking off the first of three nights of action at Lucas Oil Speedway on Thursday night, Cox would pick up a heat race win aboard the Moorefield Construction/Berco Redwood/Legacy Specialties, Inc. backed No. 7c machine.

Moving into a qualifier, Cox would finish fifth, before finishing second in the ‘B’. Making a trip to the Last Chance Qualifier, Cox’s fifth place finish was good enough to transfer him into the feature event where he would take the green flag from the 21st starting position.

With the track extremely slick and taking rubber early in the feature, Cox would pick up a few positions as they came to him as he worked his way to a 16th place finish during a non-stop feature event.

Friday night would get off to a little bit of a slower start for the C&M Motorsports team as Cox would finish eighth in his heat from the ninth starting position, and then advanced form 10th to sixth in his qualifier.

Moving in to the “B”, Cox would advance from the 12th starting position to finish fourth. Still forced into the Last Chance Qualifier, Cox would battle a steering box issue as his night ended with a 14th place finish.

Saturday night, qualifiers would be lined up off of event points and Cox found himself in the fifth starting position in the first qualifier of the night.

Slipping back to seventh, Cox would battle back up to finish fifth and he would move into one of the night’s ‘B” Main events. Advancing from sixth to fourth in the semi, Cox would make a top in the LCQ for one final shot at qualifying for the feature event.

Lining up 11th, Cox would work his way up to the sixth and final transfer position until he admittedly made a couple of mistakes and missed his line causing him to fall back to eighth and miss the transfer into the feature.

“Saturday night I had us in a position to transfer and made the same mistake two laps in a row, and it cost us two spots and knocked us out of the transfer,” Cox added. “Still it was a fun trip, and I have to thank Cody, Cori Guy, Tom Kennedy, and Cody Cook for all of their help and for working so hard. I also have to thank Lucas Boland and Kyle Miller for their help with our engine change on Thursday night. Hoping we can travel a little more to some special events in 2021.”

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

ON TAP: C&M Motorsports returns to Placerville Speedway with Justyn Cox on October 3rd.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-11, Wins-2, Top 5’s-5, Top 10’s-5.

Valvoline Raceway      Tuesday 22.September

We are all living in uncertain times at the moment and trying to manage our recreations in an ever-increasing changing environment of Covid-19 rules, restrictions and regulations.

All sports and venues are bound by any number of varying restrictions as to how they can operate their activities depending on criteria under the COVID Industry Safety Plan.

Valvoline Raceway is no different to any other venue and is governed by the Community Sport Public Health Order updated on the 28th July, found on the NSW Government
Office of Sport's Coronavirus update site.

Whilst Barry and Felicity are committed to have racing commence this season given the emotion around it being the last season of the venue's operation, the current restrictions under the order make it financially unviable to operate.

Border closures, regional restrictions, participant number restrictions, medical personnel, all play a part of allowing competitors, spectators, volunteers and staff to be part of
a race meeting.

Whilst restrictions are being constantly reviewed so will the season for Valvoline Raceway.

Given the current restrictions it is expected at this stage racing would not commence until restrictions are greatly reduced which is estimated would not be until Jan 2021.

Therefore, the season will be postponed at this stage until then with a review in November as previously mentioned.

Should restrictions be relaxed prior to this date an immediate review will take place with plenty of notice given to everyone prior to going racing, which will also allow the sourcing of necessary personnel ie. medical.

How the season will look once started will be part of the review, and all clubs will be involved in the process and once finalised - a new calendar will be released for public knowledge.

To get the venue up and running takes time, and a number of external suppliers and operators along with race teams, volunteers, race divisions and staff all need sufficient notice to be ready. It is expected that once a start date is imminent, then a couple of practice days prior would be scheduled and then the racing would commence.

Whilst management know it is frustrating for all involved, please understand that it is the intention of all involved with Valvoline Raceway to have the season get started and
continue until the final ever meeting at the venue.

Once we get racing, things may look completely different to what we are used to, however once it can be done safely and viably the season will get under way.

In the meantime, please stay safe and watch for the November update when hopefully a clearer view on when we can get back to what we all love will be closer.

PROMOTER SAD TO SEE PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY OVAL NATIONALS CANCELED

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Madsen ended with an eighth-place showing.

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

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

Madsen finished eighth for the second straight night.

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

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

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

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

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

QUICK RESULTS -

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

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

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

SEASON STATS -

55 races, 1 win, 13 top fives, 34 top 10s, 39 top 15s, 45 top 20s

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Starks placed 12th in the A Main.

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

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

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

QUICK RESULTS -

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

QUICK RESULTS -

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

Hill Shows Improvement Throughout Hockett/McMillin Memorial

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

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

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

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

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

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

Friday began well for her with a heat race victory.

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

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

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